An “agenda- of action” for 
European industry, to enable it 
to compete ini world markets 
with: the United States and 
Japan* was outlined by the 
Foreign Secretary yestertby. 

- . Sir Geoffrey Howe voiced 
wide-ranging • criticisms, of 
Europe’s industrial perfor- 
mance' in a speech to , the 
Institute of Director, and 
called fin: 

0 Tax, incentives io encour age 

“European innovative pro- 
jects”, through such means as 
Britain’s' ' Business' Expansion' 
Scheme. 

• An easier tax treatment of 
profits from . sew patents to be 
considered. 

• A review of purchasing poli- 
cies by European governments 
in high-technology industries, 
with particular support far the 
development of foe“Eurotype 
warrant". 

• Stimulus to private indus- 
tries. to incre^ research and 
devdopment, where Sir Geof- 
frey complained that Europe 
was lagging behind. 

He said that Britain was 
"woefully slow to ■innovate” 
and that too many British 
companies "seem to prefer 
fivipg in a ibofs paradise” 16 
competing internationally. 
However,, he claimed that our 
European competitors “are in 
trouble too”.

Thismust beintepreted as a 
significant criticism of Brit- 
ain’s present mergers policy, 
which is already causing wide- 
spread unease. 

Sir Geoffrey voiced surpris- 
ingly Strong support for the 
European Commission's ef- 
forts to break down industrial

From Michael Hornsby, Johannesburg 


k ® sdffoas toaspecra^ injuredbyflying glass, accord- 


convened joint session 

white, Indian and Coloured 
chambers of the South Afiican 
Parliament, President Botha 
said yesterday that be intend- 
ed to lift the. stale of emetgen- 
cy “in the near future", and 
also announced a new initia- 
nye in the lone-mnuing inter- 
national dispute over 
Namibia (South-West Africa). 

. Mr Botha said-a proclama- 
tion suspending the emergen- 
cy, in force since July 21 last 
year, would probably be is- 
sued on Friday. Although 
“sporadic and isolated inci- 
dents of violence” were con- 
tinuing in various parts of the 
country, the overall situation 
had unproved sufficiently to 
make the emergency no longer 
necessary, he said. 

The timing of the 
President's announcement . 
took observers here by sur- 
prise. -There has been little 
slackening in violence. More 
than 100 deaths in politically- 
motivated unrest were record- 
ed in January, and the toll 
cannot have been much lower 
in February, which saw at least- 
23 people killed in' several 
days of rioting -arid police 
counter-action in the black 
ghetto of Alexandra in north- 
era Johannesburg alone. 

Only a- .few hours before Mr 
Botha rose to make his an- 
nouncement, a bomb expkxl-.. 
ed in the Johannesburg 
regional headquarters of the 
South African jiolice. Two 
white policemen were slightly 


iag to the police. 

The police released few 
details, and also issued a 
notice reminding journalists 
that it is . an olfence under 
South African law to take 
pictures' of a police station. It 
appears the bomb was placed 
in a lavatory on the second 
floor of the butidm&Tmown as 
John Vorster Square. 

It is notorious with blacks 
as a place where the security 
police conduct many of then* 
interrogations of persons held 

Namibia deadline . 6 

Unita hostages 6 

Propaganda drive 12 

under South Africa's deten- 
tion- without-trial laws. So far 
as is known it is the first bomb 
attack on the building. 

No organization has yet 
claimed responsibility, but it 
seems to fit the pattern of 
sharply increased armed activ- 
ity by insurgents of the out- 
lawed African National 
Congress (ANQ. Early yester- 
day morning two limpet 
mines exploded-in an electric- 
ity substation near Durban, 
causing^ blackout 

On Monday, police killed 
seven black men they de- 
scribed as ANC terrorists in a 
gunbattie in a black township 
near Cape Town. . 

.- The emergency, originally 
imposed in 36 magisterial 
districts, is currently in force 
in 23, 14 of them in the 
Johannesburg region, five in 



the Eastern 
the Western 

Cape Town. At its most 
extensive, the emergency cov- 
ered 38 districts and about a 
third of the population. 

In his statement, Mr Botha 
said that, in order to enable 
the police to continue dealing 
with, unrest after the emergen- 
cy is lifted, existing legislation 
would be “reviewed and 
amendments proposed” dur- 
ing the current session of 
Parliament, “to provide the 
authorities with the statutory 
powers required to protect 
lives and property 
effectively”. 

Even before the emergency 
was imposed, the police al- 
ready had wide powers of 
arrest and detention under 
permanent security laws. Lift- 
ing the emergency may not, 
therefore, make much practi- 
cal difference. 

It also remains to be seen 
whether the curbs on press 
and television coverage of 
unrest, which were imposed 
last November under the 
emergency, will now lapse, or 
be replaced by other measures. 

Ending the state of emer- 
gency may be designed to 
impress foreign opinion as 
much as anything. The seven- 
member Commonwealth 
“Eminent Persons Group" is 
currently in South Africa, with 
a brief to report back to 
Commonwealth Govern- 
ments by June on the pace of 
reform in South Africa and the 
efforts made by Pretoria to 
negotiate with black leaders.

from foe 
. Mr Jusfrbe; Taylor also 
'Warned thatthe tmion.offioes 
might be dosed *nd its offi- 
cials expelled. He rejected an 
application for Sogat’s local 
fundi to be exempted. 

It has also been, disclosed 
that Mr Norman Willis, the 
TUC general secretary, met 
Mr Bruce Matthews, News 
International m an aging direc- 
tor, at a secret location on 
Monday night 

The talks were described as 
‘'informal and 

exptoratory”although no de- 
tails were released. They are to 
be resumed, but .no date has 
been set Mr Willis asked fo r 
the meeting after the EETFU, 
the electricians’ union, agreed 
to a joint approach to the 
management 

Sogat’s £17 million assets 
were sequestered on February 
10 .after it ignored a court 
order to stop blacking The 
Times. The Sunday Times , 
The Sun and The News of the 
World. The union was also 
fined £25,000, but has not 
revoked the blacking order. 
Around 4,000 of its members 
have been dismissed by the 
company., ...... 

Mr Justice Taylor said ofms 
decision to seize the union 
cars: “Itseems to me there is 
no good reason why the motor 
cars should not be taken into 
sequestration with the other 
property of the union. It may 
well be that the impact of the 
sequestration may be felt 
more acutely, and the con- 
tempt be brought to an end 
more quickly." • 

But he added: *Tt should be 

said that the union, through us 
officers, has been extremely 
co-operative in canying out 
the requirements of the 
seqestrators and their duties 
under the law. For that co- 
operation much credit is due 
to them." . ' 

The judge allowed the 
sequestrators to make 
“compassionate" payments.

By Edward Townsend, Industrial Correspondent 
The spectre of widespread talks between, the two car 



companies was “a huge 
missed opportunity - a tragedy 
for Ford and a -tragedy for 
Britain", ' 

. Had Ford taken over Austin 
Rover, the .ries^rHiito' engi-

Later, speaking on the BBC 
radio programme World at

employed 50,000 in the UK, 
20,000 more than Austin 
Rovec. 

Asked whether the two 
companies might talk again, 
Mr Lutz said the public cli- 
mate would have to change 
first. 

In a pointed attack on 
Honda, which has a long-term 
collaboration deal with BL, 
Mr Lutz added: “Blind na- 
tionalism welcomes the Japa- 
nese as a white knight to save 
Britain from the Americans. 
That is wrong.” 

Hill Samuel, BL’s merchant 
bank, was last night waiting 
for the final submissions to 
lake over the state-owned 
company's Land Rover Ley- 
land subsidiary. General Mo- 
tors of the United States 
emerged as the only bidder for 
the trucks business, while the 
more anractive Land Rover 
operation was expected to 
draw up to six “expressions of 
interest”. 

The Department of Trade 
and Industry said the fate of 
the Land Rover Leyland 
group will be decided by the 
end of March.

Unionist leaders 
seek initiative 
with dialogue call 

By Richard Ford and Philip Webster 
leaders of Northern statement issued after a joint 


The 

Ireland's two Unionist parties 
yesterday attempted to regain 
the political initiative mom 
hardline “loyalists” by indi- 
cating they wanted dialogue 
rather than violent street pro- 
tests to oppose the Anglo-Irish 
agreement 

The Government mean- 
while made clear that the door 
remains open for tails with 
Ulster Unionists about devo- 
lution after what Mr Tom 
King, the Secretary of State for 
Northern Ireland, described as 
the “tragic and totally 
counter-productive” day of 
protest on Monday. 

But the lack of a coherent 
Unionist strate gy in opposing 
the deal is causing concern' to 
the Government which fears 
that the void being created 
. will make the situation in the 
province during the next few 
months even more dangerous 
and volatile. 

Senior officials know that 


press conference was suddnely 
cancelled. 

Figures released yesterday 
showed there had been 84 
demonstrations. 57 arrests, 
655 road blocks in which 441 
were cleared by police, 237 
reports of intimidation, 47 
police injuries, 65 plastic ba- 
ton rounds fired, 1 84 cases are 
being considered for prosecu- 
tion, 132 allegations of police 
inactivity ana 43 complaints 
arising from police action. 

Mr Molyneaux, leader of 
the Official Unionists, con- 
demned the violent activities 
that had occurred and said his 
party wanted no further part 
in any future day of action. 
-However” Mr Paisley, leader 
of the Democratic Unionists, 
said he did not rale out any 
tactic in the future. 

Mr King attacked Unionist 
MPs whom he said had been 
seen “making common cause 
with people in paramilitary 
hardline loyalists plan to whip dress.” 
up trouble during this year's He told the Commons that 


marching season and that the 
credibility of Mr James 
Molyneaux and the Reverend 
Ian Paisley is now seriously 
threatened by more ruthless 
and sinister forces waiting in 
the wings. 

As the Province returned to 
normal life after a day of 
intimidation and violence the 
divisions between the two 
Unionist parties were barely 
papered over by an anodyne 


47 policemen were injured 
and there were more than 20 
shots fired 

Mr King told the 
Commons:“It is now urgent 
that the Unionist leaders rec- 
ognize again that the only way 
in which the concerns of those 
they seek to represent can be 
addressed is by constructive 
discussion and not by threats 
and violence."

Police action a blow 
to altering image 

By Paul Vallely 

The police in Northern tion of cases of harassment by 


Ireland yesterday came under 
concerted criticism for their 
lack of intervention in bun- 
dreds of cases of roadside 
intimidation thro util out the 
Province during Monday's 
strike. 

The volume of the com- 
plaints about the activity of 
members of the Royal Ulster. 
Constabulary represents a 
considerable set back for the 
attempts of recent months to 
alter die way the police are 
perceived by the Catholic 
minority. 

Yesterday the deputy leader 
of the SDLP, Mr Seamus 
Mallon, said that his party had 
so for received several hun- 
dred reports, from Protestants 
as well as Catholics about the 
refusal of the police to assist 
them to cross picket lines and 
barricades many of which 
were manned by men in black 
hoods and paramilitary uni- 
forms. 

Local newspapers also con- 
tained substantial documenta- 


pickets while police looked on. 

Mr Mallon said he intends 
to rate the matter in the 
House of Commons on Thurs- 
day and wilt present a dossier 
of the complaints to the Chief 
Constable of the RUC, Sir 
John Hermon. 

“What I want to know is 
whether the police stood by 
and watched as a result of 
individual decisions by offi- 
cers on the spot, which seems 
unlikely, or whether they were 
acting under instructions from 
either the Chief Constable or 
the British Government. I will 
also be asking why the army 
was not deployed to keep the 
roads clear”, he said. 

“Whatever hope there was 
of people being convinced that 
there was a new attitude 
within the police force as a 
result of the Anglo-Irish agree- 
ment has been dashed by this 
abdication of their rev 
ponsibility.”

Shires get 
cash to 
keep rate 
rises down 

By Colin Hughes 

Householders in shire coun- 
ties were yesterday given hope 
of a rate rise reduction from 
April 1, when the government 
guaranteed low-spending 
councils will get an extra £500 
million in grant to share. 

The ash, £100 million 
more than expected, will come 
from money high-spending 
councils forfeit 
Announcing the figure yes- 
terday, Mr Kenneth Baker, 
Secretary of Slate for the 
Environment said it could 
lead to reduced rate increases. 

Most local authorities are 
on the verge of selling their 
rates and the announcement 
will come in time for the 
shires, most hard-hit by this 
year's rate support grant set- 
tlement to revise plans. 

Mr Baker had originally 
thought the spare cash would 
total around £400 million and 
he suggested last January that 
councils protesting about lost 
grant would not suffer so 
badly as they feared. 

Prime beneficiaries will be 
those which protested loudest 
Essex, for example, will get an 
extra £16.85 million, Hamp- 
shire £15.4 million, and Hert- 
fordshire £1 1.8 million. 

They lost out in the annual 
grant settlement because the 
Government switched money 
to the inner cities. 

Treasurers in the shires are 
likely to say the announce- 
ment is loo iaie.

Ex-UN 
chief 
accused 
by Jews 

By Our Foreign Staff 

The World Jewish Congress 
yesterday accused the former 
United Nations Secretary- 
General, Dr Kurt Waldheim, 
of being a member of foe Nazi 
“brown shirts” and later serv- 
ing in a Wehrmacht unit which 
shipped more than 40,006 
Jews to death camps during 
the Second World War. 

Dr Waldheim, an Austrian 
presidential candidate, dis- 
missed the charges as non- 
sense. It was an attempt to 
discredit his election cam- 
paign. “1 was never in a unit 
which had anything to do with 
the SS.“ 

Dr Simon WiesenthaL the 
famous Nazi-hnnter, said the 
allegations were without foun- 
dation. Dr Waldheim's record 
bad been checked by the secret 
services of every major power 
before he had been permitted 
to become UN chief. 

Mr Eli Rosenbaum, general 
counsel for the World Jewish 
Congress, said the organiza- 
tion had documents showing 
that Dr Waldheim joined the 
Nazi Student Llnion on April 
1, 1938. less than three weeks 
after Austria was annexed by 
Germany. 

He said the documents also 
showed that Dr Waldheim 
joined the paramilitary SA 
(Stnrmabteilnng) in November 
1938 and remained a member 
until he entered military ser- 
vice with the Wehrmacht on 
August 15, 1939. 

Mr Rosenbaum said Dr 
Waldheim served in a 
Wehrmacht unit which was 
involved in the deportation of 
Jews from Greece to Ausch- 
witz in Poland and was in 
Yugoslavia during Nazi mas- 
sacres of civilians. 

Dr Waldheim, aged 67, said 
he served in the Balkans 
during the Second World War 
bnt denied any knowledge of 
Nazi atrocities. “These mat- 
ters were handled by other 
commands, certainly not by 
the staff 1 was attached to." 

The World Jewish Congress 
president, Mr Edgar 
Bronfman, said Dr Waldheim 
had “engaged in one of the 
most elaborate deceptions of 
oar time". It would have been 
“inconceivable that Waldheim 
would have been elected UN 
Secretary-General had the 
facts been known". Dr Wald- 
heim was UN chief from 1972 
to 1982.

discredit his campaign.

‘learning 


crime 


By Stephen Goodwin 
Political Staff 


Women in Holloway jail, 
north London, are being left 
with too much spare time to 
learn the tricks of the criminal 
trade, because of cuts in the 
prison education service. MPs 
were told yesterday. 

Gasses at Holloway are 
running at only a quarter of 
capacity while prisoners are 
forced to spend long hours in 
their cells, the Commons se- i 
lect committee on education , 
heard. 

The problem stems from 
the lack of officers to escort 
women. 

The crisis at Holloway, 
where about 300 women are 
detained, was explained by Mr 
Paul Cavadino. senior infor- 
mation officer of the National 
Association for the Care and 
Resettlement of Offenders 
(Nacro). 

During a week of day and 
evening tuition the prison 
should run 90 classes. But Mr 
Cavadino told the committee, 
investigating education in 
prisons, that last year classes 
were running at about a third 
of capacity. 

Nacro wants the Govern- 
ment to introduce legislation 
to guarantee all prisoners ac- 
cess to education in jaiL 

• Members of the Royal 
Family are backing a new 
effort to reward excellence in 
the prison service. 

The Butler Trust, named 
alter the late R.A. Butler, has 
raised nearly £300.000 since 
July. Princess Anne, the 
Trust's patron, will be making 
the first presentation on

open debate 
to stop city

that it was no coincidence that He warned 


Heath called for a combined 
European approach to the 
competitive problems now 
facing manufacturing indus- 


the most depressed regions 
were those with the highest 
crime rates. 

“If our society cannot offer 
the hope of a job, decent 
housing, or a reasonable stan- 
dard of living, how can we 
expect allegiance to society, 
loyalty to its institutions and 
obedience to its rules?" he 
continued 

.Alienation, which was now 
as deep in the inner cities as 
anywhere in America, was 
inevitable in such circum- 
stances. He added: “Alien- 
ation brings with it the 
prospect of crime and social 
breakdown.” 

Having attacked the “sterile 
trench warfare between rival 
ideologies". Mr Heath called 
for an open debate about the 
level of resources and man- 
power required for “a deliber- 
ate and purposeful strategy to 
recreate a modem British 
industry". 

He said: “It should be a 
debate involving all those who 
have an open mind who are 
prepared to abandon dogma 
and construct a programme 
that wit) command national 
consent 

“If our people believe that 
their voice has been heard and 
listened to. if as a result of an 
open discussion they do not 
feel that their interests have 
been sacrificed for those of 
privileged groups in our soci- 
ety , they will respond” 

In a speech which reflected 
some of the themes recently 


He warned that the largest 
firms, such as BL. should not 
be neglected in the drive to 
assist small business. 

It was "indefensible” to 
offer control of BL to foreign 
firms without initially allow- 
ing British bids, he said 
adding: “ft slicks in my gullet 
to hand this central British 
industry over to the Ameri- 
cans without even exploring 
the alternatives.” 

He said: “We must learn to 
manage great enterprises of 
this size for ourselves and to 
make a success of them, not 
run and hide and resign 
ourselves to our inability to 
manage as successfully as the 
Americans and the Japanese. 

“There is a lack of ambition 
in Britain today that alarms 
me. A lack of will and a lack of 
drive. An assumption of auto- 
matic failure. This mood must 
be replaced by one of new 
resolution." 

He also endorsed the idea of 
a ministry of employment and 
training, which would tackle 
the problems of training 
school leavers for real jobs, 
“one of our chief national 
failures”, and urged concerted 
help for the long-term unem- 
ployed 

Mr Heath said: “Modem 
capital is more than just 
physical objects: people are 
our most important reserve. 
And we must invest in people; 
we must create human capital, 
as we create docks and 
railways.”

Threats of surcharge and 
Hanning from office are to be 
lifted from almost 300 Labour 
councillors who took part in 
laslyear’s rates rebellion. 

That decision by auditors 
will stand even if penalties are 
imposed today on 81 of their 
colleagues from Lambeth and 
Liverpool, who led the revolt 
against rate-capping. 

Judgement is to be given in 
the High Court today in the 
appeals by the Lambeth and 
Liverpool councillors against 
verdicts by district auditors 
that they were guilty of “wilful 
misconduct”. 

The accused include Mr 
Derek Hatton, deputy leader 
in Liverpool, and Mr Ted 
Knight, leader in Lambeth. 

However six other Labour- 
led councils, which also de- 
layed setting a rate, are not to 

face surcharge. 

Greenwich is thought to 
have proofed itself against 
surcharge by acting through- 
out last year’s rebellion on 
legal advice. Hackney may be 
protected by a court judge- 
ment on its conduct almost a 
year ago. 

No reason was given yester- 
day for lifting surcharge 
threats against Labour coun- 
cillors in Sheffield, Camden, 
Islington and Southwark who

dies last year

In the Commons yesterday, 
Mr Brian Sedgemore, Labour 
MP for Hackney South, 
named ferae! as a possible 
haven for Britons wanted for 
gold smuggling or for bullion 
fraud. 

Mr Sedgemore, who has 
campaigned to get details of 
the JMB collapse made pub- 
lic, called on Mrs Thatcher to 
ask the Israeli prime minister 
to close the country's frontiers 
to frand suspects. 

He also asked the Prime 
Minister to cal! on Israel to 
deport to Britain a Leeds man 
wanted for questioning by 
Customs investigators. 

Mr Sedgemore tabled a 
written question to Mr Nigel 
Lawson, Chancellor of the 
Exchequer, asking him wheth- 
er any staff, directors or 
shareholders of Johnson 
Matthey PLC or JMB. “had 
any knowledge of or gained 
benefits directly or indirectly 
by virtue of gold smuggling 
and bullion frauds since 
1980".

to contribute £7 million to

year. 

He said two new compa- 
nies. the Daily Record and 
Sunday Mail (1986) Ltd and 
the British Newspaper Print- 
ing Corporation (Scotland) 
Ltd would be formed and jobs 
offered to those who were 
retained. 

Mr Maxwell said that on 
February 1 3 he had proposed 
a deal which would have 
guaranteed job security and a 
1 0 per cent salary increase in 


The alternative, Mr Max- 
well said, was made clear from 
the outset: substantial staff 
cuts and economies in run- 
ning costs. 

“Regrettably, that is the 
course which the National 
Union of Journalists and 
Sogat '82 have chosen to 
follow. My offer, therefore, is 
withdrawn and 1 have aban- 
doned plans to produce the 
Daily Mirror’s Irish edition 
from Glasgow. 

The deal for workers would 
include two weeks' pay for 
every year’s service, with a 
limit of 20 years and £155 a 
week. 

In the new conditions in the 


newspaper industry, be said, 
no company however solid it 
may appear to be, was safe. 
He pointed out that Mr Ru- 
pert Murdoch's 1 company,* 
News International, was pro- , 
during four national titles 
with a weekly circulation of 35 
million, with 1,500 staff 

“We are producing two 
titles with a total weekly 
circulation of about 5.5 mil- 
lion. If we cannot compete on 
a cost structure .with Mr 
Murdoch we cannot stay in 
business. 

“I had hoped that we could 
see off Mr Murdoch and Mr 
Shah by increased efficiency 
and the elimination of unnec- 
essary costs. As that route is 
no longer available to us, we 
must take the other.” 

Last night journalists on the 
two newspapers pledged their 
determination to oppose any 
redundancies which, they 
said, were unnecessary.

yesterday continued to deny 
that their lack of response was 
caused by anything, more than 
the feet that the police were 
massively overstretched. But 
privately senior Gov ern me n t 
officials in Belfast were admit- 
ting that it was a tactical 
blunder. 

Only 57 people were arrest- 
ed throughout the Province in 
a day in which highways were 
obstructed and individuals 
were physically threatened in 
hundreds of places and in 
which police were fired on by 
snipers. A factory, was 
bescigpd and sex an fire caus- 
ing £2 million worth of dam- 
age and mobs ramp ag ed - 
through the streets hurl mg 
petrol bombs, looting shops 
and burning cars- 

The low-key response of the 
police came as a surprise after’ 
the statement issued by the 
Northern Ireland Office last 
week which said that the 
Government would ensure 
t frftT roads were kept opes and 
that intimidation would be 
countered by police. ._ 

Privately, Government offi- 
cials had referred to the suc- 
cess of the police action Jn 
1977 when early firm policing 
nipped in the bud attempts to 
recreate the sustained lawless- 
ness of the 1974 loyalist strike. 

Zn recent months it had 
seemed that policing m North- 
ern Ireland had been set on a 
new even banded course. 

Last summer, as talks be- 
tween the British and the Irish 
Governments on the- 
Hillsborough Agreement 
neared completion, the RUC 
made dramatic new attempts 
to tackle the long standing 
problem of provocative Prot- 
estant marches through Cath- 
olic areas. 

Sir John Hermon’s derision 
to ban or divert three marches 
was enforced by police in riot 
gear. It brougit the first signs 
of a loyalist backlash against 
the police. 

Several local officers in the 
Portadown and Lurgan areas 
were attacked and driven from 
their homes. There were re- ' 
ports of their children being 
threatened at school. Some 
had to move house perma- 
nently. 

In a message to his men 
after the signing of the Agree- .. 
menu Sir John reminded 
them that “the RUC has 
absolultely no political 
stance.The surest safeguard o! 
the integrity of our position as 
a police fence is our own ' 
professionalism by which 1 
! mean simply decent, honest, 
Mr policing." 

Later the Catholic Bishop ql 
Down and Conor. Dr Cahal 
Daly, spoke encouragingly of 
the growing numbers of Cath- 
olics joining the RUC winch is 
; still 90 per cent Protestant in 
his manpower. He said that 
the RUC was iocreasftg in 
credibility among ordinary 
Catholics in the Province. - 

But the Anglo-Irish agrees 
ment has brought new pres- 
sure to bear on the police. 

Increasingly tire RUC is 
being forced into a position 
where it can draw comfort 
from neither section of the 
society it polices. 

Its traditional loyalist Hip- 
porters can no longer be relied 
upon. On Monday two more " 
police officers were forced 
from their homes in Lurgan 
after attacks from their Loyal-' 
ist neighbours during the 
strike. While Catholics who 
received no help in their 
attempts to gel to work wfll see 
in that confirmation of .all 
their old fears.

counterfeit currency operation 
Organized by the -mafia -in 
Italy. 

Mr Bizzell had at first 
claimed that the police had 
planted the notes. Then he 
said he was working with Mr 
Herrmann, only to ingratiate 
himself with the US authori- 
ties in the hope of a -pe ndin g 
prosecution, arising out of an 
Iranian arms deal, being 
dropped. 

Mr Curtis described their 
explanations as “a criminally 
sophisticated insurance 
policy”. 

He said: “The dever thing 
about their defence is that, 
each is based on a framework 
ofbackground facts which can 
be shown to be true. 

“Mr Herrmann has worked 
as an agent or informer for the _ 


FBI and Mr Bizzell has been 
involved in an abortive secret 
US-Jraaian heavy arms deal” 

Mi* Bizzell, aged 42, of 
Wetherby Gardens. Chelsea, 
west London, denies two 
charges of having counterfeit 
cuirency with intent two of 
having counterfeit . currency 
and one of delivering counter- 
feit currency. 

Mr Herrmann; aged 50, who 
was slaying at the Foram 
Hotel in Cromwell Road, west 
London, denies one charge of 
having counterfeit currency 
with intent arid one of having 
it in his possession. 

Mr Coitis said the Crown 
would call members of the FBI 
and . other US authorities 
whom Mr Herrmann had 
named when he was arrested. 

“Even if you are tempted to 
accept they were acting as 
good citizens, it is no defence 
for playing a serious, possibly 
deadly, game of cowboys ana 
Indians on British soil in 
return for favours from the US 
Government”, Mr Curtis said. 

The case continues today. 


Extra £5m to help 
drug addicts 

By Richard Frans, Lobby Reporter 


Healih authorities in En- 
gland are being given new 
instructions arid an extra £5 
pillion to help them to treat 
the rapidly increasing number 
of hard-drug addicts. 

The Whitehall move comes 
after a highly critical report by 
the Commons Social Services 
Select Committee last sum- 
mer. which said that treat- 
ment and rehabilitation 
services for the estimated 
100,000 addicts were “woeful- 
ly inadequate” : 

Mr Norman Fowler. Secre- 
tary of State for Social Ser- 
vices. responded by promising 
an extra £5 million, and 
yesterday he released details 
of a circular on .services for 
(hug misusers, sent to health 
chiefs, which explains how the 
money will be distributed and 
what facilities should be pro- 

Vi Sdi will be sent direct to 
'regional health, authorities, 
wrth each receiving a share in 
proportion to its population of 
those aged 15 to 34. 

A national drug advisory 
service,' made up df -smafi 
specialist teams, will be up, 
to visit the areas worst affect- 
ed and advise them. 


While the precise pattern of 
services for treating addicts 
will be decided locally, Mr 
Fowler has set out detailed 
guidelines which he expects all 
health authorities to follow. ' 

The circular says every re- 
gion should provide at least 
one drug problem team, based 
at a drug dependency unit and 
made up of a consultant 
psychiatrist, junior medical, 
staff, social workers and 
trained nurses' who deal al- 
most exclusively with drug 
addicts. 

District health authorities 
are urged to provide a range of ■ 
educational and counselling 
services for addicts as well as 
treatment facilities. 

The circular says family 
doctors should be encouraged 
10 play a large role in canng 
and treating addicts. 

“An increasing proportion 
of misusers of drugs are 
women. Consideration should 
be given in the p lanning of 
services to the special needs of ' 
female 'drug misusers, and 
especially pregnant women or 
women with.young cjpliteeri”, 
the circular adds. . 


Protest to 
halt opium 
poppies 

By Richard Evans 
Lobby Reporter 

The head of a Commons 
inquiry into bard drugs is to 
protest to the Home Office 
over plans to grow 200 acres of 
opium poppies m Britain. 

Sir Edward Gardner, Con- 
servative chairman of the 
home affairs select committee, 
fears the poppy crop could end 
up in the hands of criminals 
who would convert it into 
heroin. 

Mr John Gumrner, Minister 
of State for Agriculture, , con- 
firmed in a parliamentary 
answer that there were plans 
for commercial trials with a 
view to producing oil 
Sir Edward, whose commit- 
tee will publish its final report 
next week, sard yesterday be 
intended to raise the issue 
with Mr David MeQor, Un- 
der-Secretary of State at the 
Home Office, 

Sir Edward wants to know if 
the Home Office is aware of 
the' plans, whether the security 
implications have been appre- 
ciated, and what steps are 
being taken to make sure the 
crop does not fell into the 
wrong bands.

Wren woke up to find 
man by bed, court told 


A Wren woke to find a 
rating kneeling beside her bed, 
a court martial in Plymouth 
was told yesterday. 

The sailor had a cardigan 
pulled over his bead, covering 
his face, and one of his hands 
was under the duvet. 

Lacy Oayton, aged 20, said: 
“I was completely stunned 
and asked him what he was 
doing. He just grunted and 
told me to hang on a minute 
because he was out of breath.” 

She added that the sailor 
was obviously drunk. He had 
grunted replies to her ques- 
tions while kneeling with his 


head resting on the mattress. 
She was too frightened to 
scream or struggle and tried to 
talk to him. 

Finally, the rating stood up 
and staggered out of the room. 
“I was still in a state of shock 
and pushed my bed against the 
door’, the Wren said. 

Seaman Robin Smith, aged 
19, a Royal Navy cook, plead- 
ed not guilty to drunkenness 
and indecent assault at the 
HMS Neptune base at 
Fiaslane, Scotland, early one 
morning last August. 

The case continues today.

Royal gnide to being classy but sexy 





By Suzy Menkes, Fashion Editor 

“My aim is to design a swimsuit that 
is sexy, but not vulgar,” says Princess 
Stephanie of Monaco — a royal reenrit to 
die fashion world. 

The younger daughter of Prince 
Rainier and Princess Grace was in 
London yesterday to launch her collec- 
tion of beadrwear called, appropriately 
enough. Pool Position. 

“I have made s w im we ar that can be 
worn all day — to the beach in the 
morning and then out to dinner in the 
evening”, says Princess Stephanie, who 
wore one of her own niched and 
strapless swimsuits under a skinny 
black sldrt at her twenty-first birthday 
celebrations a month ago. The collection 
includes stretch velvet and tans sepa- 
rates. 

P rinc esa Stephanie started her tasb- 


ion career at Dior in Paris, where site 
worked in the couture studio with four 
other stylists, including Alix de la 
Comble, her partner in Pool Position. 
Thecokmrfnl swimsuits, cut very high at 
the thigh and dinging to the curves, are 
now on sale at Harrods in London and 
around the world. 

Princess Stephanie who bad just 
flown in from a promotional trip around 
the United States, sees no contradiction 
between her provocative designs and her 
Royal states. Nor does she feel that her 
contemporary, the young Princess of 
Wales, should have to dress in a sedate 
regal style. 

“That idea is quite out of date”, she 
says. “I am a princess of the twentieth 
ceacmy. Of coarse l have to dress 
nimbly for official engagements, bnt 
what I wear in private is my affair.” 

To branch her shapely beach look. 


Princess Stephanie wore a discreet dove 
grey Chanel suit, with jannty gilt 
buttons. 

Her father, who vetoed his daughter’s 
previous choice of career as an interna- 
tional fashion model supports her new 
venture. 

“He was very unsure about the 
swimsuits to start with, but now he is 
pleased that I am making a success of 
it”, she says. 

What is the dividing line between the 
sexy and the vulgar when there are lost a 
few square centimetres of stretch fabric 
to play with? 

“If I put a gold collar on a black 
swimsuit, that would make it vulgar 
immediately.” she says. “It all comes 
down to the cot and shape, i learned a lot 
from my apprenticeship in haute 
couture.”

Bodyguard 
offer to 
travellers 
abroad 

By Derek Harris 
Industrial Editor 

Thomas Cook, the travel 
agency, is offering a body- 
guard service for businessmen 
involved in delicate deals 
abroad. 

The company foresees an 
increasing demand for person- 
al security, along with a need 
for safe hotels and meeting 
places in troubled countries. 

Cook's would refer any 
businessman or firm needing a 
bodyguard or secure meeting 
place, where sensitive negotia- 
tions could take place, to 
British specialists who are able 
to make arrangements 
throughout the world. 

Mr John McEwan, manag- 
ing director of Thomas Cook, 
said: “Our 1,500 branches are 
in 143 countries, and they can 
keep us in touch over local 
developments that coukl be of 
concern to travellers. 

“It is a fact oflife that things 
are not getting any easier. Bui 
we are fully prepared to get a 
client into any country, or any 
situation." 

He said costs would have to 
be agreed with the specialists, 
and added: “No prices can be 
quoted yet for this new ser- 
vice, if only because require- 
ments could vary so much. 
But fairly obviously, body- 
guards can hardly come 
cheap.” 

Cook's, the biggest British 
travel agency, already has a 
service advising clients on 
how to live and operate safely 
while abroad. For long post- 
ings, advice is available on 
how families remaining in 
Britain can be looked after. 

At some Cook’s offices a 
health screening service is 
offered allowing travellers to 
record medical details, such as 
blood group and history of 
illnesses, on microfilm, about 
the size of a credit card, which 
can be carried on journeys 
abroad.

Teachers’ pay 


Province reputation 
damaged by strike

The minister had referred to 
allegations that police officers 
had failed to intervene. When 
the Chief Constable had rr- 


they staying ; 
on Monday? 
King said it 


Shorts? Why 
away from 


The whole country could now 
see how tragic and totally 
counterproductive the previous 
day's action in Northern Ireland 
had been. Mr Tom King. Sec- 
retary of State for Northern 
Ireland, said in a statement to 
the Commons. 

Television pictures of some 
disgraceful incidents had been 
shown ail over the world and 
would do great damage to the 
reputation of the province. The 
House would also have seen 
MPs making common cause 
with people in paramilitary 
dress. He recalled that the 
leaders of the two main Union- 
ist parties, Mr James 
Molyneaux and the Rev Ian 
Paisley, had stated it was to be a 
passive and voluntary 
demonstration and that there 
should be no road blocks or 
intimidation of those going to 
work. 

In the event there was wide- 
spread obstruction, intimida- 
tion and some violence during 
the day culminating in serious 
disorder in Belfast at night. A 
considerable number of people 
succeeded in getting to work but 
many factories were seriously 
affected. 

After paying tribute to the 
security forces and RUC, Mr 
King said there had been a 
number of allegations that the 
police did not take action when 
required. The Chief Constable 
was preparing a lull report on 
policing. To indicate the scale of 
the workload the RUC faced, 
there were some 655 roadblocks 
in the province of which 441 
were cleared. 

There were in addition some 
80 cavalcades and demonstra- 
tions which caused considerable 
disruption in a number of 
towns. There were 57 arrests and 
the names of 1 84 people noted 
to proceed by way of summons. 
Sixty-five plastic baston rounds 
were fired; 47 policemen were 
injured. 

At night a number of petrol 
bombs were thrown; over 20 
shots were fired in three tire- 
arms attacks on the police 
during disturbances in Loyalist 
areas. (Conservative shouts of 
“Disgraceful**! 

Mr Peter .Archer, chief Oppo- 
sition spokesman on Northern 
Ireland, said they shared the 
minister's abhorrence of vi- 
olence and intimidation which 
further alienated the sympathy 
of people in Great Britain from 
the cause it was apparently 
designed to promote. 

lithe protest was arranged to 
demonstrate the strength of 
feeling in Northern Ireland 
against the agreement it felled as 
an indication since they did not 
know how many people partici- 
pated voluntarily and how 
many were responding to 
intimidation. If it transpired 
that the violence and road 
blocks were planned, would 
proceedings be initiated against 
those responsible? 


ported, would Mr King report 
nild an 


again to the House? Waul 


inquiry take place into reports 


that off-duty members 
UDR were at barriers? 

Would Mr King invite party 
leaders of Ulster to meet under 
his chairmanship and seek a 
concensus which would isolate 
the men of violence on both 
sides? 

Mr King said this was mani- 
festly not a dignified and vol- 
untary protest. It indicated 
considerable planning and the 
Chief Constable would want to 
investigate all aspects. 

Any evidence of indifferent 


and Wolff and 
were 
work on 

Mr King said it was the 
Government's strong hope and 
desire that Northern Ireland 
should remain part of the 
United Kingdom. One of the 


most offensive things about the 
! nnpTic 


protest was the implication that 
somehow they were seeking to 
undermine the position of 
Northern Ireland. The purpose 
of the Anglo-Irish agreement 
was to reassure Unionists about 
the validity of the position of the 



majority and to get the_ agree- 
ment of 


policing should be brought to 
liefCon- 


the attention of the Chief 
stable and it would be investi- 
gated. 

He went on: 1 hope we can get 
discussions going. The Prime 
Minister put some sensible pro- 
posals to the leaders of the 
Unionist parties. These could 
have provided a way forward 
but were repudiated although 
we have not yet received any 
official indication to that effect. 
1 will do what 1 can to seek ways 
in which discussions can now 
start. It is the only way. Violence 
will not succeed. 



the Republic firm in 
international law that there 
could be no change in that 
position without majority con- 
sent. Even in the face of that, 
there were those who refused to 
accept it. although it was article 
one of the agreement. 

Mr King said be was not sure Mr 
Powell's views were shared by 
his parliamentary colleagues. 
The Government was anxious 
to see a basis of administration 
in Northern Ireland which was 
widely acceptable to both 
communities. The Anglo-Irish 
agreement was designed to 
encourage that. 

Sir Eldon Griffiths (Bury St 
Edmunds, O said it was one 
thing to make splendid state- 
ments about not yielding to 
intimidation. But at the end of 
the day. it depended upon the 
courage and resolution of the 
security forces, particularly the 
RUG Would Mr King show just 
a little more understanding of 
the human position of police 
officers who were shot in the 
back by the violent minority 
and who no longer had the 


ioddests 

shown throughout world 
Thatcher and be met Unionist 
leaders last Tuesday. The 
Unionists had attended expect- 
ing a door to be slammed in 
their face. When they came out 
they said the deadlock had been 
broken. It was dear that a door 
had been opened. The tragi 
was that when they rot hade to 
Belfast, somebody else decided 
io slam the door in their face. 
Mr John Hume (Foyle, SDLP): 
Although the Anglo-Irish agree- 
ment has now been in place for 
three months, it has not done a 
single bit of harm to a single 
citizen in Northern Ireland and 
the only damage done has been 
self-inflicted such as the da m age 
done yesterday to wide sections 
of the community. 

Mr ’ King: So far from not 
suffering any damage or bans, 
there are already signs of the 
benefits that can come from this 
agreement. 1 think any indepen- 
dent Unionist must take com- 
fort from the switch of votes 


away from the party supporting 
titutional 


consent of the majority yet were

Griffiths: Show : 
understanding Tor police 

Sir John Biggs- Davison ( Epping 
Forest. C) asked how the Gov- 
ernment now proposed to gov- 
ern the province — by force, or 
would they seek a constructive 
way out and get in touch with 
the Taoiseach (Dr Garret Fitz- 
gerald) and adjust this dam- 
nable agreement? 

Mr King said the problem was 
to get a true understanding of 
the agreement. The sort of 
literature being passed on Mon- 
day, in which Sir John had 
played his pan - talking about 
partial Dublin rule and the 
bringing about of the all-Ireland 
the agreement was seeking ~ 
showed how great were the 
distortions being perpetrated on 
the Unionist majority in North- 
ern Ireland. 

Mr Stephen Ross (Isle of Wight, 
L) said it was time the Unionist 
leaders recognized that the sup- 
ply of funding from the rest of 
the United Kingdom was not 
inexhaustible. (Cheers). What 
about the workers at Hariand 


by their 

did not get from his office 
the support to which they were 
entitled in the grave circum- 
stances the country now faced? 
Mr King said he deeply resented 
the last sentence of Sir Eldon’s 
remarks. The RUC was aware 
that he (Mr King) had the 
greatest admiration for them as 
a professional police force. 

I am well aware (he said) of 
the concern Sir Eldon has about 
the particular matter of 
consultation and the rights of 
the Police Federation in North- 
ern Ireland. That is under 
discussion. 

Mr Merlyn Rees (Leeds South 
and Moriey. Lab) a former 
Secretary of State for Northern 
Ireland, said Monday’s day of 
protest, and in some cases near 
insurrection, together with the 
plans projected for the weeks 
and months ahead to culminate 
in July, could only seriously 
weaken the link between North- 
ern Ireland and Britain. 
(Cheers). 

It was no good ignoring the 
situation. The Government 
should now talk with the Gov- 
ernment in Dublin as to what 
would happen if the link really 
was to be stretched to breaking 
point 

Mr King said it was precisely 
because of the British 
Government's concern that Mrs 


violence to the constitute 
nationalist party 
Mr Ivor Stanbrook (Orpington, 
Q: If we go on like this; with the 
majority feeling themselves 
threatened and some taking 
desperate measures and Mr 
King condemning them in the 
strongest terms as he has. we are 
going to gel into a situation 
where even the minority feels 
threatened and the situation will 
get tar worse than now. 

Does that not point to the feet 
that what was done in the name 
of the agreement was a blunder 
of the first magnitude? 

Mr King: I pay tribute to the 
number of people who, often 
with considerable inconve-

Mr King: We have entered into

a heated and protracted 
between the Prime Mta- 
tster'aud Mr NeB Khwock, 
Leader of the O pp osition, over 
h eating allowances for oU peo- 
ple aftaring the recent odd 
weather. Mrs Thatcher de- 
fended the Government's record 
and said that, in fact, what Mr 
Kinnork did not Eke was the 
extent of ft le help available. 

The questions were opened by 
Mr Martin Flannery (Sheffield, 
HiUsboroagh, Lab) who said it 
was a "mMw of the deepest 
concern that many oM people 
had died and were still dying of 
hypothermia dining the bitterly 
cold winter. 

How can the Go ve rn m e nt and 
the Prime Minister stand Idly by 
(he asked) and watch those poor 
people in cold, t m heat ed rooms, 
waiting for approaching death? 
Are the rich and wealthy mem- 
bers of this Government going to 
blame everybody else hot them- 
selves when everyone in the 
country knows exactly who is to 
bfame for these deaths? 

Mrs Thatcher: Spending on help 

with hunting hs$ fnfrpawj 

dramatically since 1978. Then it 
was £90 million. Now it is £400 
million, an recreate of £140 
mititon in real terms. 

The number of people efigiMe 
for beating additions has in- 
creased greatly and 90 per cent 
of supplementary pensioners get 
hearing additions as compared 
to 70 per cent h 1978-79. 

In addition to the £400 mfl- 
Uoo, extra aid in the farm of 
severe weather payments are 
available hi almost all of the S00 
DHSS area offices. 

Mr Kinnock asked Mrs 
Thatcher to join him and other 
MPs in applauding the initiative 
of Age Concern in providing a 
thousand survival kits to ofa) 
people they considered to be 
most at risk from the cold. 

Bat the Government most 
issue argent beating allowances. 

Will the Prime Minister (he 
asked) change the system of 
helping with heating costs so 
that we never agate experience a 
winter in which the poor freeze 
to death for want of help with 
beating bills? 

Mrs Thatcher said hdp had 
greatly exceeded anything given 
by the Labour government. 

The Secretary of State for 
Social Services (Mr Norman 
Fowler) had arranged far mas- 
sive advertising in the national 
press on the availability of extra 
help with fne) bills. This was 
being supplemented by great 
local effort. 


result of . changing the foramia 


The system of aid with heat- 
ing cost should be better, sim- 
pler and not generous so there 
would net be another winter of 
disconnections. 

Mrs Thatcher said the severe 
weather payments were paid 


What Mr Kinnock does not 
like (she added) is the extent of 
the help available. 

Mr Ktimnrlr said he acknowl- 
edged the extent fad it was the 
effectiveness that Mrs Thatcher 
nrast answer for. He wanted to 
know why, if there was such 
help,was Britain's death rate 
during the winter was three 
times that of the United States 
and four times that of Sweden. 
Deaths last year were higher 
than the year before and would 
be higher tins year. Mrs 
Thatcher should step this owfid, 
mounting crisis by a policy 


Mrs Thatcher repeated the fig- 
ores of aid she gave earlier and 
said: What Mr Khmock has 
been asking for is happening 
and he does not like that it is 
being done. 


Mr Geoffrey Dickens 
(Little bo rough and 

SadiUenorth, O ffie Prime 
Minister concede that the last 
Labour Government did very 
little for old age pensioners and 
that it was the last Labom- 
Govermnent which snatched 
away the Christmas boons 
which the Conservative Govern- 
ment had introdnced.The Tories 
reintroduced the bonus. 

How dees she consider the 
Labomr Party can accuse as as 
they have today whem they were 
such a disgrace themselves in 
the past? 

Mrs Thatchen I cannot improve 
cn the excellent way in which 
Mr Dickens puts the case. I 
hope that MPs will also remem- 
ber that only last year the 
Opposition was supporting n 
strike which was designed to rob 
pensioners of beat and light. 


Mr Michael Meadowcroft 
(Leeds West, Lab): In the past 
heating payments varied widely. 
Why are they based on the 
indtridaal rather than on the 
cost of heating? 


Mrs Thatchen Last year’s rale 
was not satisfactory, so it was a 
matter news for disaetSSn-and 
that should be able to give the 
Had of latitude Re owes to 
have. 


Falklands 
fleet still 
possible 


SHIPPING 


Britain could launch another 
Fal k l an ds ca m pai g n, Mrs Mar- 
garet Thatcher, the Prime Min- 
ister, said in the Commons. She 
was replying to Sr Edward do 
Gum (Taunton, Q who had 
asked her to look at the appall- 
ing decline in the merchant fleet 
Sir Edward do Cans, accompa- 
nied by Labour cheers, said: 
MPs in all parts of the House are 
desperately concerned about the 
matter and its implications for 
defence and economic policy. 
We coukl not mount another 
Falklands operation because we 
do not have the ships and mote 
than 80 per cent of British trade 
is carried in ships with foreign 
flags. 

He asked her to instruct senior 
colleagues to do the things 
necessary to change the situa- 
tion. 

Mrs Thatcher I disagree that we 
cannot mount another Falk- 
lands operation. We could. The 
merchant marine and war 
requirements are the subject of 
continuous review. The mer- 
chant fleet remains capable of 
meeting all the needs of the 
aimed forces. The important 
thing for the merchant marine is 
that British shipping can com- 
pete with the fleets of other 
nations on costs. 


Orange badges 

Asked if it was proposed to 
change the conditions of the 
orange badge scheme for dis- 
abled drivers, Mr Peter 
Bottomfey. Under Secretary of| 
State for Transport, said in a 
written Commons reply that the 
department was about to review 
with local authorities and others 
concerned how the scheme had 
been working. 


kits to be 
outlawed 


DRUG ABUSE 


The Government is to take 
action in the new Drug Traffick- 
ing Offences Bill to outlaw the 
sale of cocaine sniffing kits, it 
was announced in the House of 
Lords. 

Lord deuarthnr, Under Sec- 
retary of State, Home Office, 
said, when he moved the second 
reading of the Bill, which con- 
tains new powers to confiscate 
the proceeds of drug trafficking, 
that reports had come to tight 
within the last few weeks about 
the sale in London and else- 
where of cocaine sniffing kits. 

It appeared that there was no 
means of preventing the sale of 
such kits under the present law. 
The Government was proposing 
to bring forward at the commit- 


tee stage of the Bill provisions 
ific < 


creating a new specific offence 
of supplying or offering to 
supply a combination of articles 
which, talon together, the seller 
believed were likely to be used 
in the administration of a 
controlled drug, other than for 
bona fide medical purposes. 

He added: The open sale of 
kits which are designed to 
facilitate illicit drug taking are 
an intolerable affront to which 
we most respond immediately 
and decisively. (Cheers) 

The scourge of drugs, inflict- 
ing incalculable misery and a 
tragic waste of young lives, was 
one of the most serious prob- 
lems facing society. The powers 
of confiscation of the proceeds 
of drug trafficking which the Bill 
introduced was another weapon 
in the Government's armoury 
and a particularly vital one. It 
would give the traffickers cause 
for thought and hit them where 
it hurt They would have to 
reassess the risks and examine 
whether it was worth the candle. 


Brain-washing in 
schools condemned 


Brain-washing in the class- 
room could have no possible 
place in a free society, Mr 
Christopher Fatten, Minister of 
State for Education and Science, 
declared during Commons 
question time. 

Mr Robert Banks (Harrogate. 
C) had asked him to agree that it 
was a cardinal principle for 
teachers to maintain impartiat- 
iiy when teaching political mat- 
ters. Heads and teachers who 
expressed strong political alle- 
giances drove a wedge between 
the vital relationships of teacher 
and pupil and teacher and 
parent, be said. 

Mr Robert Madeanan (Caith- 
ness and Sutherland. SDP) 


asked what stej?s were being 


taken to assist the police to do 
their proper job of giving crime 
prevention advice in schools but 
who were being prevented from 
doing so in some left-wing, 
Labour-dominated boroughs 
Mr Fatten said an admirable 
and very useful document OP 


cent and would be endorsed by 
bis department and by zhe 
Home Office. He hoped this 
document would get wide 
circulation. 

Mr Harry Greenway (Ealing 
North, Q, a former deputy 
headmaster, recalled a colleague 
who insisted on demonstrating 
his love of communism by 
displaying posters of Chairman 
Mao and the hammer and sickle 
and his teaching had to be 
watched but he was the excep- 
tion rather than the rale. Most 
people were not given to politi- 
cal bias in the classroom. 

Mr Patten replied: I totally 
accept what be has said. I think 
the antics of a few discredit the 
hard work and conscientious- 
ness of the overwhelming 
majority of teachers. I had better 
confess that my moral tutor at 
Oxford was a former member of 
the Communist Party. . 


Joseph condemns 
NUT behaviour 

as Indefensible 




EDUCATION 


The behaviour of the NUT was 
condemned as appalling mid 
indefensible by Sir Keith Jo- 
seph, Seoetaiy of State for 
Education, dunng question tune 
in the Commons. 


His comments came ic^rcply 


to a question by Mr 
Carlisle (Warrington South, Q 
who had asked: Does he agree 
that the behaviour of the leader- 
ship of the NUT has shown y*t 
again they are prepared to do 
ff f to children's education 
and harm to teachers as a body? 

Is not the time oomiug to 
remind individual teachers who 
are concerned about their in- 
dividual professional standards 
and who are anxious to obtain 
Irigh^r salaries, that they can 
join other unions instead? 

Sir Keith Joseph: I agree that 
the behaviour of the NUT 
seems to me to be appalling. 
They, are evidently willing to 
take the money tK a * has been 
by the other unions 


employers and yet to con- 
tinue to disrupt education. 

They are standing in the way 
of reform in education which is 
needed and 1 regard that as a 
totally indefensible position by 
the NUT. 

The exchanges were opened 
by Mr Sean Hughes (Knowsfey 
South, Lab) who asked: What 
assessment does the Secretary of 
State make of the level of public 
pressure for greater spending on 
education? 

Sir Keith Joseph: I have no 
doubt that there is considerable 
public pressune for higher stan- 
dards in education and for the 
best possible return on the 
resources invested in the educa- 
tion service. The Government 
will continue to work towards 
these aims.

dual purpose- Money is avail-

There has been public pres-

government of the day to son 
them out in scant order of 
priority. The fact the Govern- 
ment has found additional 
money for teachere’ pay. subject 
to conditions, which I have 
described, is recognition of that 
duty. 

Mr Martin Flannery (Sheffield. 
Hillsborough, Lab): Would he 
admit that the standard of 
schools is higher than it has ever jr 
been? It is typical that the voices 
against that tvafiiy come from 
the Government benches. 

He is not paying teachers their 

north. They regard him as a real 
enemy and make it de ar in afl 
their organizations. Teachers do 
a vast amount of work and there 
is no overtime. 

They are going back to work 

embittered and angry and it will 
aD happen again in a very short 
time. 

Sir Keith Joseph: The Govern- 
ment has set aside a consid- 
erable amount of money for 
effective teaching on the bass I 
have described. That is the 
reality and no amount of 
vituperation will change it. 

There are very good schools 
but there is surely by commoiLu

Secretary of State now teU ustbe

when he told us there were 
insufficient funds to pay the 
teachers what they wanted, or if 
the funds were not there, what is

Sir Keith Joseph: Yes, an d that 
would make the Government 
that much more popular if it 
were possible. When that policy 
was adopted two or three years 
ago the local education authori- 
ties altogether spent £1.000 
minion more than they had 
warned they would spend and 
that affected the national econ-

Mr Giles Radke. chief Oppo-

More students 
despite fall 
in grants 


The fact that the number of 
students in this country was 
rising to unprecedented heights 
under this Government hardly 
suggested that the drop in the 
of grants was a major 
disincentive to higher educa- 
tion, Mr George Walden, Under 
Secretary of State for Education 
and Science, said during ques- 
tion time exchanges m the 
Commons. 

Mr Alfred Dubs (Battersea, 
Lab): Student grants are now 14 
per cent below the level in 1979. 
This represents a significant 
drop in the living standards of 
students and as such is damag- 
’ — io the future of university 
ration. 

Mr Walden: Student grants 
have been dropping, on and off, 
ever since 1962 under govern- 
ments of both parties. 

Mr Andrew Barnett (Denton 
and Reddish, Lab): Does he 
believe there are students suffer- 
ing acute hardship because of 
the present level of grants and 
can they fell any further? Why 
cannot we have the public 
inquiry which was promised last 
year? 


r Walden: We are constantly 
alert for evidence of real diffi- 
culty of the kind he has referred 
I have nothing further to add 
on the question of review. 


Relatives gibe

Mrs Margaret Thatcher, the 
Prime Minister, said during 
'question time in the Commons 
that she resented tire implica- 


tion made by a Labour MP who 
asked whether 


any member of 
the Cabinet bad a relative 
working for General Motors, 
which warns to bay British 
Ley land. 

‘Mr Terence Davis (Bir- 
. raiflgham, Hodge Hifi, Lab) bad

i moors in Birmingham will die

Tory MP suggests end

Many MPs who were at unjver- 


»y MPs 

sity before World War Two got 


on well without a students* 
union — so why was it necessary 
to have a National Union of 
Students at all. Mr John Stokes

and VAT relief on big refur-

On council house sales, the

are allowed to use only a small 
proportion of those receipts.

Move to bar ‘peace convoy’ 

By Anthony Bevins, Political Correspondent 


A 1 00- vehicle mobile hippie 
commune, known as foe 
“peace convoy ” could be 
j banned from camping on 
private land under a proposal 
for inclusion in the Public 
Order BiJL 

Last year, the convoy was 
barred from its traditional 
encampment on National 
Trust property adjacent to 
Stonehenge, because of a pre- 
emptive High Court injunc- 
tion, so it moved up the M6 to 
Cannock Chase on July 12. 

Clause 14 of the Bill now in 
its Coibmons committee 
stage, gives a senior police 
officer power “to impose con- 


ditions on public assemblies if 
he reasonably believes that 
serious public disorder, seri- 
ous damage to property or 
serious disruption to the life of 
the community may result 
from the assembly, or that its 
organizers* purpose is the 
intimidation and coercion of 
others.” 

Bui it is felt that even 
Clause 14 does not give the 
police power to bar the convoy 
from private, property, and 
once the convoy has parked 
on private land it is up to the 
owner to take civil action to 
remove it. 

A week after the convoy's 


arrival on the Cannock Chase 
site ' at Seven Springs, the 
county council petitioned the 
High Court for a repossession 
order, but it was only after 
spare motor parts and fuel had 
been handed over, at 
ratepayers’ expense, that the 
convoy finally left on July 25.

Television 
slot for 
filibuster 
Tory MP 

By David Hewsoa 
. and George Hfll 

The Government faces a by- 
eketioa in the middling safe 
seat of Derbyshire West with 
the appointment of Mr Mat- 
thew Parris, the MP, as 
presenter of the television 
programme Weekend World. 

He succeeds Mr Brian Wal- 
den, the former Labour MP, 
who gave op die Ladywood 
seat in Birmingham in 1979 to 
present the programme. 

Mr Parris, who is 36. has 
held Der by sh i re West for nine 
years, and had a majority of 
15^25 in 1983. 

He is remembered for 
moan tings filibuster, with one 
other Tory MP, on Miss Janet 
Pookes’s Bill to curb kerb- 
crawling, which nearly sank 
the BilL 

To this day he has not 
entirely been forgiven for this 
offence against public decency, 
nor for that tendency to show 
levity towards sacred cows 
which can be so damaging to 
the prospects of yonng Tory 
backbenchers. 

He cannot resist using irony 
or the reductio ad absurdura 
to make bis serious points, as 
he often showed in his column 
for The Times. 

His burlesque proposal of a 
system of dairy support involv- 
ing the issue to fanners of 
concrete cattle was based on 
an assertion that the 
Government’s policy repre- 
sented “land nationalization 
by stealth.” 

He did not hesitate on 
occasion to attack the Prime 
Minister herself, though his 
time in her office answering 
her mail before he became an 
MP left him with admiration 
for her abrasive qualities. 

His political attitudes were 
partly formed by a peripatetic 
childhood in Sooth AdricaJan 
Smith’s Rhodesia and Swazi- 
land. 

Mr Parris intends to talk to 
foe Tory Chief Whip abont the 
timing & his application to the 
Chiltern Hundreds, but he is 
expected to resign before Ao-

Matthew Parris. wh«-» is to present Weekend World 


gust when he joins Leaden 
Weekend television. 

H i refused to say yesterday 
whether the Government 
should regard the constituency 
as a safe seat at the by-election 
he bus cacsed. 

“The by-election is going Co 
be hard work and 1 must take 
care from now on not to join 
the argument,” he said. 

The Government's poor 
showing in the polls and the 
level of MPs’ salaries had 
nothing to do with the move, 
be said. “It is the positive 
challenge of the new job rather 
than any dissatisfaction with 
the old that helped me make 
np my mind.” 

The new job meant that he 
would not return to party 
politics, he added. 

He refused to disclose his 


Dt'w salary bat said that his 
Nip's salary of “around 
£16.000” was adequate for his 
needs. 

That prompted Mr John 
Birt. LWTs director of pro- 
grammes. to observe that Mr 
Parris wonid find his new 
salary “more than adequate”. 
Mr Walden was reported to be 
earning an annual six-figure 
SGfIZ. 

Mr Parris won a first in law 
at Cambridge and worked in 
the Diplomatic Service and the 
Conservative Party research 
department before becoming 
an MP.

partly formed by a peripatetic 
childhood in South AfricaJLan

Westland 
staff being 
lured to 
Continent 

By Tim Jones 

Workers at Westland have 
been urged not to respond to 
local newspaper advertise- 
ments which offer “excellent” 
salaries to scientists and tech- 
nicians prepared to work in 
central Europe on new heli- 
copter designs. 

The advertisements, placed 
in local newspapers circulat- 
ing in the Yeovil and Weston- 
super-Mare areas of Somerset 
where most of the Westland 
workforce is based, asks for 
“qualified designers or engi- 
neers to join multi-national 
teams in advanced helicopter 
design”, and general techni- 
cians. 

But the London-based 
Howard Organization Techni- 
cal and Scientific Consultants, 
which placed the advertise- 
ments, refused yesterday to 
reveal for whom it is acting. 

The silence raised specula- 
tion that European helicopter 
firms could be hoping to 
acquire Westland technology 
before the company settles 
down in its new partnership 
with Sikorsky-Fiat. 

Westland competitors on 
the Continent include 
Aerospaiia! of France. 
Mcsserschmidt-Bokow- 
Biohm of West Germany and 
Augusta of Italy. 

Workers at Yeovil have 
been advised by Mr Paddy 
Ashdown, the area’s Liberal 
MP. to reject the offer. He 
said: “If I were a Westland 
worker 1 would hol take up 
this offer because the firm now 
has a great future with Sikor- 
sky-FiaL" 

Mr Peter Batten, the West- 
land spokesman, said: “The 
only people likely to take up 
these offers arc those who 
were going to take redundancy 
anyway because as a 
workforce we are 100 per cent 
behind the deal with Sikorsky- 
Fiat” 

He added: “There is no 
danger of losing secret designs 
abroad because any individual 
would know only a tiny bit of 
the overall plan.” 


25 foreign 
diplomats 
ordered 
to leave 

By Nicholas Ashford 

Diplomatic Correspondent 

The number of foreign dip- 
lomats ordered out of Britain 
after committing criminal of- 
fences doubled last year, ac- 
cording to Foreign Office 
figures released yesterday. 

They showed th3t 25 diplo- 
mats were withdrawn at the 
Foreign Office's request last 
year compared with 13 in 
1984. Almost half were for 
drinking and driving offences. 

There were also six inci- 
dents of theft, three of inde- 
cency and two serious traffic 
offences. One diplomat was 
expelled for illegal possession 
of firearms, another on drugs 
charges and another for failing 
to abide by a court order. 

The Foreign Office has a 
policy of not naming the 
culprits or identifying the 
countries they represent. 

However, several cases 
have been in the news. One 
involved Mr Ismail Uyinvoth, 
an education counsellor at the 
Uganda High Commission, 
who beat up a London taxi 
driver. 

The man who defied the 
court order was Mr .Ahmed 
Rajab. the Syrian who claimed 
diplomatic immunity when he 
refused to leave his Kensing- 
ton home. 

A Foreign Office official 
said the increase in diplomatic 
withdrawals stemmed from 
the “get tough” policy out- 
lined in a government White 
Paper last April, 3fter the 
Libyan embassy shooting the 
previous year. 

Altogether last year the 
Foreign Office recorded 54 
serious offences by foreign 
diplomats. Us policy is to 
deliver a wanting to first-time 
offenders in cases involving 
motoring offences or shop- 
lifting and then to demand 
that diplomats be withdrawn 
if they commit a second 
offence. Expulsion orders are 
issued only if a foreign embas- 
sy refuses such a request. 


Doctor’s 
affair led 
to attack 

A family doctor’s affair with 
one of his patients led to an 
attack on him by her husband, 
the General Medical Council's 
professional conduct commit- 
tee was told yesterday.. ; 

Dr Anthony Codington, 
aged 54. of Kiveioa Park, 
Sheffield, was found guilty of 
serious professional miscon- 
duct and his registration was 
ordered to be suspended for 12 
months. . He has 28 days to 
appeal. 

The affair began, the com- 
mittee was told. last April 
when the patient, identified as 
Mrs X, was suffering depres- 
sion and having marital diffi- 
culties. 

He visited her ai her 
parents’ home, where they 
were found by her husband 
cuddling on a sofa “in circum- 
stances of considerable 
intimacy”. 

The husband hit the doctor 
several times with some force. 
Dr Collington was taken to 
hospital with two fractured 
cheekbones, but declined to 
press charges and told Mrs X 
that he only had himself to 
blame. 

Mr John Macdonald, repre- 
senting Dr ColUngham. said 
i he doctor had been recently 
di'orced and believed Mrs 
Vi divorce was inevitable. 
“This was a warm, caring, 
passionate, albeit brief, rda^ 
iionsbip between two parties. 

Mr Macdonald produced 13 
letters and a 1,500-signature 
petition in support of Dr 
Collington. 


Shipyard 
action plea 
by unions 

By Michael BaBy 
Transport Editor 

'Two maritime unions yes- 
terday backed shipowners; in 
urging the Govemmenito halt 
the “alarming” . decline in 
Britain's merchant fleet. 

In 10 years, Britain has sunk 
from third to ninth place 
among world fleets, and the 
number of ships has dropped 
from 1,8 18 to 727, the Nation- 
al Union of Marine, Aviation 
and Shipping Transport Offi- 
cers and toe Engineers' and 
Managers’ Association said in 
a Budget submission to the 
Chancellor, Mr Nigel Lawson. 

They say time is running 
out for government action to 
halt the decline in Britain's 
fleet and shipbuilding cap- 
acity. They urge better depre- 
ciation allowances and 
freedom to set aside tax-free 
reserves for new ships and 
repairs. 

They also want an investi- 
gation into tax concessions for 1 
ships built ui British yards, 
and those kept on the British 
register for a certain length of 
time. 

Their call was supported by 
the General Council of British 
Shipping which said: “We 
want the Treasury to give a 
more favourable climate com- 
parable to that in rival ship- 
ping states.” 

But with the Government 
under increasing pressure over 
posable Budget concessions, 
there has been no indication 
from Lord Caithness, ah Un- 
der Secretary of State at the 
Department of Transport, that 
help is on the way.

Unita may bargain 
for hostages’ safety 


Unita guerrillas who have 
seized about 150 expatriate 
workers, including at least two 
Britons, in the northern Ango- 
la diamond mining town of 
Andrada. say they may still 
issue conditions for their re- 
lease. 

Mr Jeremiah Chitunda. the 
Unita representative in the 
US. said yesterday that no 
specific demands were yet 
being made, but “conditions 
are bound to change" and the 
policy of releasing hostages 
without conditions might be 
altered. 

Most of the hostages, taken 
on Saturday in Andrada. are 
Filipino and Portuguese but 
there arc at least two Bn tons, a 
West German and a Roma- 
nian. A Unita spokesman in 
Lisbon said that the Filipinos 
and Portuguese would be re- 
leased without conditions. 

Officials from Diamang. the 
Angolan diamond mining 
company, and from the Ango- 
lan Government, and Mr 
Christopher Segar. First Secre- 
tary at the British Embassy in 
Luanda, were lo fly to the 
isolated town yesterday to 
assess the situation. An early 
report from an independent 
source confirms that the town 
was devasfed and workshops 
serving the diamond mines 
destroyed. 

The’ hostages will probably 
be marched south to the Unita 
headquarters at Jamba. 

This is the third time the 


By Richard Dowden 
diamond-producing area has 
been a target of the rebels. In 
Februarv N84 expatriates in- 
cluding 16 Britons were seized 
from Caftmfo. In December 
the same year, another 22 
were seized from the same 
place and an American 
aircraftman killed. 



Although most expatriates 
have been freed unharmed in 
the past. Mr Jonas Savimbi, 
the Unita leader, has this time

Namibia’s August deadline 


From Michael Hornsby. Johannesburg 


In a new move in the long- 
running international wrangle 
over the future of Namibia, 
President Botha proposed yes- 
terday that the eight-year-old 
UN settlement plan for the 
territory, known as Security 
Council Resolution 435. 
should be put into effect from 
August I this year, provided 
Cuban troops withdraw from 
Angola by the same date. 

He told a special session of 
Parliament in Cape 
TownrDespfte the progress 
which has been made in 
bilateral discussions stake Oc- 
tober 1984. when Angola 
agreed in principle to the 
withdrawal of the Cubans in 
conjunction with the imple- 
mentation of the settlement 
plan, the Angolan Government 
has yet to agree to a satisfac- 
tory timetable for Coban 
withdrawal.** 

The setting of a precise date 
for putting Resolution 435 into 
effect is the new element in the 
South African position. Mr 
Botha's further assertion that 


the Cubans represent “The last 
remaining obstacle” to 
Namibia's independence is not 
strictly new. but is perhaps 
clearer than any previous 
statement. 

Mr Botha's move is seen 
here as a clever attempt by 
Pretoria and Washington to 
put pressure on Angola to send 
home the estimated 25.000- 
30.000 Cuban troops stationed 
there, a goal they have pur- 
sued jointly for several years. 

Negotiations with the Ango- 
lans seemed to be making 
some progress towards the end 
of 1984 bnt have been in 
deadlock for more than a year. 
Strictly speaking, the Cubans 
have nothing to do with the 
Namibia issue, but Washing- 
ton seized on them as a way of 
getting Pretoria to agree to 
Namibia's independence and 
reducing Soviet influence in 
the region. 

The idea of setting a date for 
implementation of Resolution 
435. according to informed 
sources, was agreed in princi-

Minister, and Dr Chester

Botha gets 
plea on 
torture 


East London wants to 
be home to all races 


From Our Own Correspondent, Johannesburg 


By Nicholas Ashford 
Diplomatic Correspondent 

Amnesty International yes- 
terday launched an interna- 
tional campaign against 
human rights abuses in South 
Africa, claiming that there had 
been a dramatic increase in 
incidents of torture and in the 
arbitrary detention of oppo- 
nents of apartheid. 

The organization has pub- 
lished a 1 7-page briefing paper 
on human rights in South 
Africa and a document con- 
taining allegations of the wide- 
spread use of torture. 

It has also sent a 10-page 
letter to President Botha call- 
ing on him to take 10 steps 
which, it says, would be 
evidence of his commitment 
to end the violations. 

Those include the release of 
political detainees and the 
removal of immunity enjoyed 
by security officials accused of 
mistreating and torturing pris- 
oners. 

It also wants the establish- 
ment of independent judicial 
inquiries into reports that 
government agents had killed, 
abducted or attacked govern- 
ment critics and anti-apart- 
heid demonstrators.

Double defector said 
to be well in Moscow 


From Frank Johnson, Bonn 


An anonymous telephone 
call to Radio Liberty’s Lon-

Mr Oleg Tumanov, a senior 
editor at the station’s trans- 
mitter in Munich, who is 
believed to have defected back 
to the Soviet Union be left 21 
years ago. was “alive and well 
in Moscow”. 

This was learned here yes- 
terday. although Radio Liber- 
ty in Munich refused to 
comment on the reports. 

Mr Tumanov, aged 42. 
disappeared on February 24. 
He was last seen by colleagues 
when he said he felt unwell 
and was going home. 

Becoming suspicious when 
nothing more was heard from 
him for five days, station 
officials called the police, who 
forced open the door of bis

They found that his most

later discovered that he had

The Kremlin has postponed 
indefinitely a controversial 
scheme to divert water from 
the Soviet Union’s northward 
flowing rivers to irrigate the 
arid south after widespread 
protests by conservationists 
and economists. 

The tong-standing and gran- 
diose scheme has been the 
subject of repeated attacks in 
the official Soviet media since 
It was included in draft out- 
lines for the economy pub- 
lished in October. A senior 
official confirmed yesterday 
that it had been omitted from 
the final version, which will be 
approved by the 27th Commn- 
nist Party Congress this week. 

“At present, we can manage 
without the switching of die 
water from the northern 
rivers,” Mr Leonid Vid, depu- 
ty chief of Gosplan, the state 
planning body, said. A halt to 
the loss of water in the 
Caspian and new techniqBes 
for tracing irrigation systems 
meant that water requirements 
could be met locally. 

The shelving of the scheme 
is seen as another determined 
break with the era iff Leonid

ership. Brezhnev was a strong 
supporter of the project, and of 
another even more ambitions

Then, just two days before the

suspicion here that" these As-

some influence within the

Asyut the rumours that their

Yet, for the authorities here, 
the real threat is presented by

of the other students standing 
for election had deliberately

the union is today controlled

On the surface, their de-

Aborigines 
plotting 
revenge 
on Hawke 

From Our Correspondent 
Sydney 

Aboriginal leaders, angered 
by the Hawke Government's 
decision to abandon an elec- 
tion pledge on land rights, 
yesterday vowed to retaliate 
by disrupting showpiece na- 
tional events. 

On Monday night, the Cabi- 
net finally rejected a plan to 
draw up federal legislation and 
impose it on stale govern- 
ments unwilling to accept a 
preferred land-rights modej. 

Mr Gary Foley, an Aborigi- 
nal activist, said demonstra- 
tions would be staged to 
disrupt next year's defence of 
the America’s Cup and the 
1 988 bicentennial celebrations 
to draw international atten- 
tion to the issue. 

Land rights for Aborigines 
have long bad the support of a 
significant group in the Labor 
Party but it was not until the 
Hawke Government made it 
an election issue that it had 
any chance of becoming legis- 
lation. 

The demise of Aboriginal 
land rights hopes was sig- 
nalled last month during 
Western Australia’s state elec- 
tion when Mr Brian Burke, the 
Labor Premier, vowed to re- 
sign if Canberra tried to force 
him to submit, and Mr Hawke 
said he could appreciate his 
objections.

Moderates 
scared off 
by killing 

From Ian Mnrray. 

Jerusalem 

The murder of Mr Zafer al- 
Masri, foe first Palestinian to 
agree to be appointed mayor 
in foe occupied territories by 
Israel, appears to have fright- 
ened off the leading moderates 
who were thinking of follow- 
ing his example. ‘ 

Both the men who bad 
agreed to be considered as 
mayor of ai-Bneh withdrew 
from foe reckoning yesterday. 
One of them, Mr Jamil 
Tarifia, said Israel was in part 
responsible for foe murder of 
the Nablus mayor, because it 
had turned the job into a 
political one. 

The other candidate, Mr 
Walid Mustafa Hamad, took 
out an advertisement in an 
east Jerusalem newspaper 
withdrawing his offer because 
of "unexpected events” 

The newspaper. al-Mithak, 
carried another announce- 
ment from a potential candi- 
date as mayor of Ramallah, 
Mr Nadim Zara, toying be 
had never even asked for the 
job. 

The murder has also been 
given as the reason for a group 
of moderate Palestinians from 
foe Hebron area abandoning a 
trip to Amman to tell King 
Husain of Jordan personally I 
that they supported his' n ew 
position of non-cooperation 
with the Palestine liberation

Not only do Deposit Bonds offer a premium

that interest each year without deduction of tax. 
This is unlike tax-paid investments, where part of 
the interest is lost automatically. 

Most children are non-taxpayers, so Deposit 
Bonds are of particular benefit to them Because as 
long as they do not pay tax and the bonds are given 
by someone other than their parents, they keep all

This special tax advantage means Deposit

So when you’re thinking about, their future, 
give them something that will grow and grow in

Six states 
still face 
food crisis 

Rome (AFP).- Despite 
bumper harvests m Africa last 
year, six countries in .1986 will 
have problems feeding their 
populations, according to the 
UN Food and Agriculture 
Organization. 

In a special report issued on 
the situation in Africa, the 
FAO named the six as Angola. 
Botswana, Cape Verde, Ethio- 
pia, Mozambique and Sudan. 

It said they would need 2.4 
million tonnes of food aid. 

The FAO put the total heeds 
of the 45 countries south of 
the Sahara at 3.3 million 
tonnes, half that of last year. A 
further. 5.3' million tonnes 
would be imported commer- 
cially. 

This was despite a generally 
excellent harvest in 1985, 
which was a record .54.3 
million tonnes, 14.2 million 
more t h an in 1984 and 23 per 
cent up on the average of the 
past five years. 

The FAO called on donor 
countries to help by funding 
the purchase of food in areas 
of surplus in Africa and their 

I - transport to areas of need. 

The report drew attention to 
Sudan, which had. a record 
harvest of 4.6 million tonnes 
in 1985 and a surplus of 
520,000 tonnes. Yet it did not 
have the resources to distrib- 
ute the food. 

Prospects for the 1986 har- 
vest are variable, the report 
said. In most of southern 
Africa the rains were late but 
good in January and February, 
and the harvest should be 
normal if they continued, but 
Angola and Mozambique 
would be hit by the effects of 
civil war and Botswana by a 
sixth successive year of 
drought.

Heart of 
gold 

There is a tradition of lovable 
cockney heroes, stretdimg- 
from the wilder excesses of 
19th*centary fiction to a series 
such as Boon (Central), The 
eponymous hero (played by 
Michael EJphick) is a **bitbf a 
UtT in every conceivable 
sense, with one eye upon what 
no doubt be calls '‘ladies” and 
the other npon the hearts of. 
the television audience. He 
need not look at his own heart, 
of coarse, which is so egre-

Verdi and Puccini should 
soon be smiling (or 
scowling?) at one another

not be more visible. 

Of coarse honesty and a 
certain ragged lovabiUty are 
attractive qualities, bat they 
are not quite so overwhelming 
that a whole series can be bn3t 
around them. And Booh, with 

to signs of 

great deal of drama is being 
concocted ont of a few relative- 
ly trivial incidents, which 
means that it has acquired a 
frantic ahr not dissimilar to 
that of the average soap opera. 

In last ni^it's programme the 
hero, known as a “freeUnce 
troubleshooter”, was fightii 
the forces of evil in the gnise 
two antique dealers. One can- 
not expect great performances 
to from such a scenario 

— certaMy the female 'villain 
was signalling her unpleasant 
attentions from several miles 
away — hot one hoped for a 
certain inventiveness. 

Unfortunately, the script 
failed to rise to the lew 
occasions available, and as a 
resalt the whole enterprise 
stayed Tather flat. But the 
win problem was that of tone 

— lifce many other contempo- 

rary series on tderisfon. Boon 
tries to oscillate between com- 
edy and melodrama while only 
managing to foil through the 
middle. - ■' 

4 WTutf It's Worth (Channel 
4) returns with a new series 
devoted to consumers and 
their “rights’*. The pro- 
gramme ha* a doable advan- . 
tage, therefore: it can plan- 
ffl&iy claim to perform a public 

service (in last night’s episode 

it -exposed a mo who took 
advantage of the misery of the 
unemployed) while at the same 
time adding to foe termless 
stock of public amusement 
witb-its less serious items; In 
the latter category must be 
included foe pursuit of foe 
programme's victims- by: the 
relentless taterdw* « 
investigative version off the 
foot-in-the-door approach- 
This generally ends - m a 
confrontation or, even better, a 
fight - and must be very good 
for foe rating.

American brass in 
all its splendour 


Milwaukee SO/ 
Foss 

Barbican 

There is no denying that, 
while American orchestras do 
not always play with the 
character of ours over here, 
their standards of technique 
and ensemble continue to be 
quite remarkable. Copland’s 
Fanfare for the Common Man 
for " instance, which opened 
this concert by the visiting 
Milwaukee Symphony Or- 
chestra, was declaimed by the 
brass with thrilling security 
and splendour of tone, and the 
same players contributed a 
rousing climax to Ives's Deco- 
ration Day. 

The whole of Ives’s imagi 
native world seemed lo be 
distilled in this wonderful 
little tableau: the nostalgic 
wistfulness, the extraordinari- 
ly daring orchestral strokes, 
the capacity to evoke a scene 
from New England life — . ,n 
this case the commemoration 
of the victims of the Civil War 
_ with almost tangible vivid- 
ness. The conductor, Lukas 
Foss, sorted out the complex 


In successi ve weeks this month Verdi 
and Puccini open at’ theatres, not 
opera-houses, on either side of the 
TTtames. On your right feeing down- 
stream, the Old Vic has Julian 
Mitchell's Alter Aida, whidi tells how 
Verdi and Boito after much mutual 
suspicion came to work together on 
Otello. It was reviewed on this page 
towards the end of last year, when it 
toured Wales under the title of Verdi’s . , 
Messiah. On your left is Cafe Puccini 
at Wyndham’s, the first full-length 
play by foe actor, broadcaster and 
writer Robin Ray. Here foe whole of- 
Pucdnfs life, jiot just a slice of it,- is 
put on stage and intercut with very, - 
familiar anas. 

The rival teams have been eyeing 
one another at a distance, slightly 
surprised at the coincidence. But, as 
Robin Ray observes with due deco- 
rum, “There were two successful 
operas about Manon, so why should 
there not be two plays about opera 
composers?”. A less courteous man 
might have pointed to the matter of 
La Boh&ne, over which Puccim and 
Leoncavallo squabbled, furiously, an - 
episode which features in Cafe Pucci- 

Rjry was m his-twenties' wte° he 
had his first encounter with, opera. 
Dining National Service hehadmade - 
friends with a fellow-officer who 
stayed on in foie RASC and became 
one of foe Army’s spokesmen. The 
’ * carried with it aftat in Berkeley 
are and a certain entertainment 
Iowan ce. One night, Mien the 


e — were not singing, foe 

officer placed a cognac in Ray’s left 
hand, a libretto in his right and 
Bokeme on foe turntable. “It was , 
says Ray, “for Puccini and me, just as 
for Rodolfo and Mimi, love at first 
sight. Inevitably that was the Bee- 
rharn recording with De Los Angeles 
apd Bjfrling. From that day it has 
never been dropped from my private 
list of desert island discs.” 

Later a 10-year stint of reviewing 
for Capital Radio kept Robin Ray in 
weekly touch with classical records. 
But foe idea of a Puccini play came 
from Andrew Lloyd Webber. They 
first met on another of Ray’s long- 
miming programmes. Face the Mu- 
sic. 

' “His proposal was something based 
on that fight with Leoncavallo over 
who should compose an opera on 
MnigePs Scenes delaviede Boheme. 
1 took the idea away and reckoned 
that at most it would make a one-act 
piece-And fora time I rafoeravoided 
Andrew, because he does like getting 
his own way. But I worked with his

his own way. But I worked with 
Really Useful Theatre Company 
shows like Side by Side by Sondhc.... 
and Tomfoolery- and foe name of 
Puccini had to surface again. 

^This was five years later and the 
proposal was for a ‘Side by Side by 
Puccinf. Andrew claimed foal Puca- 
ni made arrangements of his most 

I nn>hMtnE 


telling you so*. But it did provide foe 
idea, for Cafe Puccini . and before I 
could' turn round I found myself 
committed to a ‘Sydmonton Special’, 
one of those musicals which gets an 
airing at his private festival each 
July.” 

Ray had written sketches for the 
theatre, and compilations of other 
people's work, but never a play. He 
was determined that he should not 
turn out the stock Radio 4 composer- 
biography. The arias themselves were 
to be foe starting-point for episodes in 
Puccini’s life: foe first successes, foe 
fiasco of Butterfly, foe elopement 
with Elvira, the affair (real or 
imagined) with the housemaid Doria. 
Whenever possible foe chronology of 
the music should fit the chronology of 
Puccini’s life, although a couple of 
liberties are taken with this. 

“The first period of writing was 
intense. It is too pompous to say that 
I felt inspired, but 1 did feel a touch of 
that white heat of creative activity. I 
stood at foe typewriter and within 
eight days produced a script of 104 
pages. On one side was a pile of opera 
records and on foe other all the 
Puccini biographies, with Mosco 
Cartier always at foe top. What you 
will see at Wyndham's will be very 
different, but at least there was 
something for Sydmonton. I ve al- 
ways been a sprinter, never a long- 
distance runner. At school I nw 
managed anything beyond foe 1UU 
yards.” - 

Has Puccini himself changed in 


Ray’s eyes after that Sydmonton 
sprint, perhaps under foe influence of 
Tony Palmer's ill-favoured television 
film' or the knowledge of the rival 
Verdi prowling around Wales? 

“No, I don’t think so. I think you 
have to force the rivals out of your 
mind, although I confess to admmng 
Robert Stephens greatly in that 
Palmer film, and confess also foal lan 
Chari eson, now in After Aida, was one 
of foe people we had in mind for 
Puccini. No, I worked just with a 
great portrait of Puccini before me, 
straw hat on his head, a cigarette ever 
in his mouth. But after a year with 
him he remains foe same Puccini: 
Leoncavallo's rival, a great womaniz- 
er, a bit mean Andrew, I know, 

sees him as one of the great commer- 
cial operators, one of the first 
composers to exploit his own music. 

After Puccini, Robin Ray moves 
into ballet. There will be no more 
musical biographies for the time 
being, although he reckons that 
Schumann would be an ideal subject 
He has written a libretto for Ravel s 
Gaspard de la nuit, which will be 
choreographed by Gillian Lynne, 
probably for Northern Ballet Theatre. 
So what is he now? Broadcaster . . . 
actor . . . playwright . . . librettist. 
What is on his passport? 

“That's a question I've been worry- 
ing about I now call myselt 
•Entertainer’." And that was foe self- 
description Robin Ray’s father. Ted. 
also used. 


Bournemouth 

Sinfonietta/ 

Calcraft 

Elizabeth Hall 


Six concerts this week and 
next in tribute to Joaquin 
Rodrigo, foe doyen of Spanish 
composers, began on Monday 
night with the Bournemouth 
Sinfonietta, who are giving 
four of them. Now in his 
eighty-fifth year, foe composer 
was present wiih his wife to 
hear Raymond Calcraft con- 
duct two of his 1 1 works in 
concerto form which together 
represent his major contribu- 
tions to foe orchestral reper- 
tory. 

Being deprived of sight 
since foe age of three has been 
a factor in developing Rod- 
rigo's musical sensibilities, 
and his flair for instrumental 
colour in a romantic idiom. A 
feeling for his native heritage 
shapes much of foe impres- 
sionistic style and content of 
foe Concierto serenaia (1952), 
in which leuan Jones was the 
nimble and neat harp soloist 
and the writing uses only an 
occasional harmonic tartness 
to invigorate the echoes of a 
bygone grace of spirit 
Thirty years later Rodrigo 
added the Concierto como un 
divertimento as his second 


textural layers most convinc- 
ingly, conjuring a moment of 
magic when the offstage bugle- 
call drifted evocatively past a 
quiet backcloth of tremolo 
strings. , 

Beethoven’s astoundingjy 
dynamic Seventh Symphony 
illustrated the other side of 
things. The rhythmic control 
was immaculate; Foss brought 
out some telling detail; and_ in 
foe Allegretto an outstanding 
string section really showed 
what it could do. And yet 

somehow the performance as 

a whole seemed, to lack per- 
spective, even involvement; 
foe finale did not really blow 
the audience out of their seats 
as Beethoven surely intended 
it should. 

Earlier, in Bruchs First 
Violin Concerto, ihe orchestra 
had provided a finely sono- 
rous accompaniment to which 
Nigel Kennedy’s richness of 
lone was more than equal- The 
soloist handled the technical 
problems as if they did not 
exist (foe interpretative ones 
hardlv do anyway) and de- 
lighted his audience with a 
bonus — some “Milwaukee 
Blues”. 

Malcolm Hayes 

concerto for cello, this one 
written for Julian Lloyd 
Webber and clearly intended 
to combine a folksy lyricism 
with some demands on per- 
forming technique. Its charac- 
ter shows more conscious 
contrivance than other works 
of Rodrigo, with a correspond- 
ing reliance on gestures that 
Mr Lloyd Webber imbued 
with only fitful cogency. 

The conductor drew a warm 
and expressive response from 
the orchestra, as also in the 
watercolour delicacy of Rod- 
rigo's Distant Saraband with 
its evanescent remembrances 
of 3 counly past Ravel's 
Mother Goose and Falla’s El 
Amor Brujo helped to frame a 
context for the rest, in perfor- 
mances that caught the fanci- 
ful enchantment of the former 
more successfully than the 
haunting dramatic ritual of 
foe latter.

With its meagre resources,

of guilt and physical anguish, 

it is difficult to payattennon

The point of that killing, it 
seems, is that Athdark loses 
his precarious sense of civi- 
lized identity when the Ro- 
mans leave and reverts to 
barbarism. But the plot-hne is 
extremely confusing - partly 
through the multiple dou-

Rudkin's changes of idiom, 
which plunge from tirades and

The idioms tend to cancel 
each other out Very rare are 
foe occasions when they are 
used to grama tically ironic

a signal of the Roman defeat 
and is so delighted at finaUy

fails to register the catastro-

It is not too difficult to see 
why foe piece should have had 
to wait half a century for

stock of Penderecki’s extraor-

worldwide success was with 
violently avant-garde pieces, 
often on apocalyptic themes. 
But from the late 1970s on- 
wards came a radical change 
towards compositions using 
traditional harmonies and 
thematic structures, often con- 
sciously reflecting Polish na- 
tional sentiment (particularly 
in the wake of the Solidarity 
uprising). • 

This programme vividly 
contrasted the two ages of 
Penderecki, First the compos- 
er conducted the RAM Opera 
Orchestra and Chorus in

Penderecki Festival 


seems to sum up, and indeed 
catalogues, his enfant terrible 
explorations. These days foe 
catalogue does sound a little 
like yesteryear’s fashions: foe 
Song of Solomon splintered 
into jagged syllables, or deliv- 
ered in a cacophony of melis- 
mas; foe orchestration a 
familiar mixture of quasi- 
aJeatoric scramblings and 
mysterious reposes. 

But, although the music 
rarely conveyed , the sensual 
excitement of this celebrated 
piece of erotica, one could not 
ignore its dramatic appeal. 
The moment towards foe end 
when an enormous turn was 
gradually filtered down to two 
solitary basses, before foe 


opaque wash of vocal sound 
dosed in again, was quintes- 
sential Penderecki. 

After foe interval came the 
composer’s other side: _ ex- 
tracts (not heard in Britain 
before) from his 1978 opera 
Paradise Lost. Suddenly the 
orchestra was producing the 
textures of foe 1880s. and the 
harmonies, though chromauc, 
had become inexorably tonal. 
]t was hard to judge the 
opera’s overall steps from 
these sombre extracts, but 
pithy elegance does not seem 
to be its foremost quality. 

The brooding prelude, 
where Milton retrospectively 
introduces The Fall, is narrat- 
ed by a speaker over a dark.

SPECTRUM 


Geraldine Norman unravels the $6 million mystery of the Getty Museum’s controversial old master 


Fake with a fortune at stake? 


Unfolding of 
the saga's 
many secrets 


The former history of the painting 
is shrouded in mvstery. Hitherto 


is shrouded in mvstery- Hitherto 
quite unknown, it was found 
somewhere in Europe by Derek 
Johns, a London dealer who used 
to run Sotheby's Old Master de- 
partment He lias kept the identity 
of the former owner a closely- 
guarded secret 

In selling the painting, Johns 
entered into a partnership with two 
other dealers. Artemis of London 
and Eugene Thaw of New York, 
the latter a brilliant dealer trusted 
more than any other by American 
museums. Thaw sold the painting 
First to Ronald Lauder, a wealthy 
private collector who is Caspar 
Weinberger's assistant at the US 
Defense Department the son of 
Estee Lauder and an influential 
trustee of the Metropolitan Muse- 
um. 

Then the trouble started. Lauder 
asked Alain Tarica to look at the 
painting he had purchased and 
Tarica pronounced it a fake — and. 
moreover, a fake by two different 
hands. Thaw took the painting 
back and refunded the purchase 
price. He next loaned it for a few 
weeks to the Metropolitan Muse- 
um in New York and the art world 
flocked to see the controversial 
painting. Finally he sold it to the 
Getty Museum. 

The wide publicity given to the 
controversy at the time of the 
purchase put .Alain Tarica on his 
mettle. He began by combing the 
archives of Europe for references to 
the painting, but with little success. 
His search did . however, alert him 
to the extraordinary reputation of 
Luigi Cavenaghi. a restorer who 
worked at the Brera. Milan, and 
became the director of the Vatican 
an gallery. 


The London National Gallery is compil- 
ing evidence on how the 15th-century 
artist Dieric Boats painted. This laud- 
. able and scholarly endeavour is aimed at 
helping California's Getty Museum 
prove it has not bought a Bouts fake. The 
museum spent a reputed $6 million on an 
“Annunciation" last year which is be- 
lieved to have been painted as a 
companion to the National Gallery's 
-Entombment", long attributed to Boots. 
If the two paintings can be proved to use 
an identical technique it will ward off the 
suggestion made by Alain Tarica, a New 
York dealer, that the Annunciation is a 
20th-century fake. 

' Bat life is not that easy. Most scholars 
specializing in early Flemish painting 
find the Annunciation odd in one way or 
another. And the results of the routine 
scientific investigation of the picture 
made by the Getty Museum contain signs 
that features have been added to the 


composition in a later century, probably 
our own. 


Tarica claims that the picture has been 
completely repainted in the 20th-century. 
He believes that a leading Italian picture 
restorer, Luigi Cavenaghi. began work on 
it around 1900 but only finished the two 
figures. He says that most of the picture 
was painted recently, imitating the 
manner of Boats. j 

A Dutch follower of van der Weyden, 
Dieric Bouts, imbued his stiff, almost 
scnlptnraL figures with mystical inten- 
sity. Only three works can be firmly 
attributed to his hand, around which a 
group of attributed pictures has been 
gathered because of their similar paint- 
erly vision and technique. 

The National Gallery owns two paint- 
ings in this attributed class and its 
scientific department, one of the best in 
Europe, is preparing a detailed report on 


them. *T think we may get as near 
proving the case as one institution can do 
for another", says Alistair Smith, the 
keeper responsible for northern paint- 
ings. David Bomford, the scientist in 
charge, adds: "We have seen absolutely 
nothing to make us doubt the painting 
over there. We will put up the evidence on 
our paintings and it is up to other people 
to draw their own conclusions." The 
study Is due to be completed by the end of 
this month. 


Little is thus known about the 
correct physical characteristics of 
such a painting. . 

The Getty's case for considering 
the painting authentic rests first on 
its similarity to the National 
Gallery picture, particularly the 
identical relining canvas and smu- 


Aiain Tarica remains scepticaL “If a 
man is good, he too can analyse the 
materials and techniques and get them 
right. Look at the famous van Meegeren 
forgeries. Everything seemed right until 
new methods of dating pigments were 
invented in the 1960s. Yon can now use 
neutron activation analysis or study the 
ratio of various isotopes of the pigment. 
The Getty should get an independent 
laboratory to make these tests." 


Turned his hand to 
complete inventions 


While limiting himself to a 
minimum of restoration on muse- 
um pictures. Cavenaghi was said to 
have frequently repainted pictures 
almost completely for private cli- 
ents and occasionally to have 
turned his hand to complete inven- 
tions. A supposed Cima de 
Conegliano in the Poldi Pezzoldi 
collection in Milan has only recent- 
ly been discovered to be 50 percent 
Cavenaghi 

Last autumn Tarica approached 
The Times and offered to pay the 
costs of sending any scientists of 
our choice to check through the 
results of the technical examina- 
tion the Getty had made. The 
Getty agreed to receive scientists 
working for The Times. So far. so 
good — but no properly qualified 
scientist would agree to go. 

The Instilut Royal du 
Patrimoine Artistique in Brussels 
was first approached since it has 
done more work on early Flemish

explain the picture to each other 
simultaneously without drawing 
breath. The outraged public affairs 
director. Philippa Cal nan, asked 
Tarica to leave. “She bundled me 
out like the dirty washing", he 
complained subsequently. 

After tempers had cooled, Rothe 
and his assistant took me, but not 
Tarica, patiently through the re- 
sults of their investigations. Before 
discussing the salient points and 
the doubts they raise, the historical 
context of the painting should be

painting than any other institution. 
The director. Mme Lilian 
Maschelein, acknowledged that the 
painting qualified as being of 
national importance to Belgium 
but said that she could agree to 
work on it only if invited to do so 
by the Getty itself or the Belgian 
Government 

The Getty balked at issuing such 
an invitation, saying dial it had 
complete confidence in the paint- 
ing and, for its own part saw no 
nod for a second opinion. Other 
scientists were unwilling to offend 
so influential an institution. 

John Walsh, director of the 
Geliy, then suggested a compro- 
mise. It would review its scientific 
evidence forme if I came in person, 
and for Alain Tarica if he came 
with me. The atmosphere in the 
laboratory' which nestles in the 
basement of the imitation Roman 
villa housing the Getty Museum 
was highly charged as Walsh, 
Ronald Laskin the curator, Andrea 
Rothe the restorer, and various 
assistants gathered to meet the 
troublemaker. 

Spiky questions and elaborate 
explanations gradually gave way to 
farce as Tarica and Rothe, both of 
excitable temperament, began to 


The chequered 
history of 
the painting 


Count Guicciaidi, the Milanese 
envoy to the Congress of Vienna in 
1815, brought back with him four 
early Flemish paintings on linen 
which were inherited by various 
members of bis family. In 1860 Sir 
Charles Eastlake, then director of 
the London National Gallery and 


one of the connoisseurs who 
pioneered a revival of interest in 
early Flemish and Italian painting, 
purchased one of them. The En- 
tombment in Milan. He was shown 
another. The Adoration of the 
Magi, which he recorded in his 
diary as in poor condition. 

The three remaining pictures 
were included in an exhibition at 
the Brera in Milan in 1872. They 
belonged to three different owners 
and the catalogue records their 
titles as The Ann unication. The 
Resurrection and The Adoration of 
the Magi. Then they disappeared. 

When Sotheby's offered The 
Resurrection for sale in 1980, the 
rediscovery caused a stir. Such was 
the enthusiasm of the National 
Gallery that it bid more than it had 
ever done at auction for any 
painting. It was outbid by Norton 
Simon, the millionaire art collec- 
tor, who bought it for£l.87 million 
for his museum in Pasadena, 
California. 

Derek Johns was then head of 
Sotheby's Old Master department 
and in 1984. now turned dealer, he 
produced The Annunciation, still 
from an undisclosed source. He 
says that he has seen the third 


missing painting. The Adoration, 
which is now in Switzerland, “but 
will never come on the market". 

What happened to the paintings 
between 1872 and 1980 remains a 
mystery. It is believed by the art 
trade that, at some stage, the 
picture must have left Italy without 
an export licence. According to 
Italian sources they belonged at 
one time to Antonio Grandl a 
leading Milanese art dealer who 
died in J923. and passed to his 
hens. His great-grandaughter, Lau- 
ra Grandl now Sotheby's represen- 
tative in Milan, has never beard of 
the paintings belonging to her

family. The family home in the 
fashionable heart of Milan was, she 


fashionable heart of Milan was, she 

B rs, burnt down during the war 
d ail her great-grandfather’s ar- 
chives were lost. 

Grandl however, was a close 
friend and collaborator of Luigi 
Cavenaghi the restorer. Indeed, a 
sculptured portrait medallion of 
the two men adorns the entrance to 
the Brera honouring their service 
to the museum. Did Cavenaghi 
restore the paintings for Grandi? 
Or could he have sold them to him, 
for he also dabbled as a dealer? 
History does not relate. 


The results of the tests made at the 
Getty have not been published and 
only one or two outsiders have seen 
documents such as the X-ray or 
ultraviolet photograph. The claim 
that the painting is in “pristine" 
condition is likely, however, to be 
fiercely argued once outside ex- 
perts have had a chance to study 
the evidence. 

The Annunciation, if genuine, 
would be the best preserved exam- 
ple in the world of a 15th-century 
painting in tempera on linen. The 
cloth was painted very thinly in a 
technique akin to watercolour 
painting. Contemporary records 
reveal that thousands of pictures 
were painted on doth in the 15th 
century but less than 100 survive. 
In an attempt to preserve them, 
many have been varnished or 
touched up with oil paint, which 
has generally destroyed the surface. 


WHAT THE ART- WORLD’S EXPERTS THINK 


Karel G Boon, former keeper of 
prints and drawings, Rijksmuseum, 
Amsterdam: “I have not seen the 
painting but mere are features of 
the composition which seem 
strange." He cites the treatment of 
the figures, the bench beside the 
Virgin, the book resting on it and the 
draped angel's arm. 

Lome Campbell, Courts uld 
Institute: 'There is nothing seriously 
wrong with the picture." 
CoUnBsler, New York 


Majmk Frinta, State University of 
New York, Albany: "The canopy is 
of a type not used over a bench 
or throne but over a bed. Its 
inappropriateness puzzles me 
greatly. ' 


and is in almost pristine 
condition." 


Barbara Lane, City University of 
New York: "My first reaction on 
seeing the painting was 'this 
can't 6e Bouts’." 


Stephen Godard, University of 
Kansas. Lawrence: “It is curious 
how the angel’s hand is 


disappearing. The area of red doth 
seems very large. It is some kfrid

seems very Targe. It is some kfrid

Robert Koch, Princeton

Cathefine Perier-dTetwen, 
University Libre de Bruxelles: 

"Most probably by a fate 15- 
century follower of Bouts. The 
technical documents show later 
additions, notably the baldachin and 
red curtains. Given the opacity of 
the red, it is impossible to Judge 
what was underneath.” 

Leonard Slatkes, City University 


of New York: f 'lt is cjifite apparent 
that the Norton Simon and Getty 
pictures cannot be by the same 
hand ... If they were smart 
they’d get some neutral agency to 
do an investigation and pubBsh 
the results." 


James Snyder, Bryn Mawre 
Coliege, Pennsylvania: ‘There are 
some aspects of toe painting 
that are indeed unusual (especially 
toe veiled arm of toe angel 
Gabriel that should be holding a 
sceptre). This is fficely to be due 
to repaint or restoration In my 
mind.”

pigment not in general use _ after 

1 725. is taken as a sign of age; rt was 

rediscovered in the IWOs, howe v-

fakes. 

The even manner in which the 
painting fluoresces under ultravio- 
let light is taken as a si gn tha t the 
surface has not been disturbed by 
repainting — although there could 
be other explanations, such as the 
unifying effect of a fixative varnisb- 
They interpret a pattern of dots and 
patches of fluorescence as paste 
used for the refining which, has 
oozed through abrasions in the 
linen and not been painted over, 
another sign of age. 

Effects seen under ultraviolet 
l ight are notoriously difficult to 
interpret; scientists normally use 
the ultraviolet lamp to alert them 
to problems which are then ana- 
lysed by other methods. Indeed, 
one of the Getty's most* unlikely 
statements about the picture seems 
to be based on a misreading of 
ultraviolet effects. In a signed 
memorandum. Andrea Rothe in- 
formed me that “The preparatory 
drawing, executed in lead or silver 
point, is visible only under ultravi- 
olet light". No Flemish artist is 
recorded as uring lead or silver 
point for underdrawing; charcoal 
carbon-based ink or paint were the 
normal materials. Moreover, to 
show under ultraviolet light, the 
lines must be on the surface of the 
paint and are more likely to be 
shading titan underdrawing. 

It is the X-ray which provides 
evidence of overpainting as they 
penetrate the surface and can 
reveal the brush work below or 
alterations under the surface paint 


A substantial area of 
modern overpaint 


There is reason to believe that 
this is a recent alteration to the 
picture. Fine strands of the Virgin’s 
hair are painted straggling over the 
red hanging! and they are painted 
with lead tin yellow whose exis- 
tence was only rediscovered in the 
1940s. 

On the basis of the evidence 
currently available, it looks as if the 
painting is by a follower of Bouts 
with a substantial area of modern 
overpaint This has come to light as 
a result of Tarica's criticisms and 
he deserves to be taken more 
seriously by the Getty. A careful 
investigation by independent ex- 
perts could reveal that more of the 
surface is modem, as he asserts, or 
even evidence of the two hands be 
sees at work. His challenge can no 
longer be ignored.

This coincides with the view of 
Mme. Maschelein and her col- 
leagues at the Insfitut Royal in 
Brussels that the baldachin, cur- 
tains and other red draperies were 
all added by a later hand. They 
were judging from an X-ray photo- 
graph sent them by the Getty. 

Once it is accepted that the area 
of red drapery has been painted 
over the original composition, 
most of the scholars' problems with 
the painting are resolved: the 
baldachin's mistaken perspective, 
the angel's arm draped by a curtain, 
the combination of a bench with 
bed hangings and the absence of

whisking the little bundle off 
to their vehicle in a flurry of 
competence and cardiac 
massage. On learning I was a 
doctor they handed me a 
laryngoscope arid to my relief 
I managed to pass ah endo- 
tracheal - tube through 
Jessica’s mouth and between 
her vocal chords to secure 
her airway. The race was on. 
For every six chest com- 
pressions by . the 
ambulanceman I gave the 
Ambu bag a squeeze to push 
air into Jessica's lungs. 

The traffic parted, a blue 


sea seen by the light of the 
ambulance’s omnipotent 
flasher thank God people 
respect the narrow divide 
between life and death and 
pull over to give the former a 
chance. Please breathe, Jes- 
sica, please, please breathe. 

It was two minutes before I 
understood why the 
ambulancemen kept asking 
who the mother was, and 
they barely flinched to learn 
that 1 was both the doctor 
and the da d; none the less the 
ambulance — already cross- 
ing red lights and skirting 
bollards — seemed to go a 


little fester. Crisp radio mes- 
sages had alerted the 
paediatric team at the receiv- 
ing hospital. They rushed her 
into the resuscitation room 
and, feeling like a spectator 
seeing through a glass darkly, 
I was led away from the scene 
of the action to a little room 
with welcome privacy, a cup 
of tea and no holds barred. 

It was 20 minutes before 
they told me she wasn’t going 
to make it but that they’d 
continue a bit longer. It was a 
kind gesture, but we’d felt 
from the outset she was dead. 
Everyone was very consid- 


erate and courteously reti- 
cent The young nurses, 
childless but intensely in- 
volved, were attentive and 
devoid of platitudes. The 
hospital chaplain was sympa- 
thetic, positive and 
marvellously understanding 
— could he have once been 
through this himself, as was 
rumoured ? 

The young and kindly 
consultant paediatrician, 
summoned from home and 
so used to this scenario, at 
least would be spared the 
tragedy of a half-survivor. 
My histrionic sense of being 


COT DEATHS: THE FACTS 


Hie sodden infant death syn- 
drome ranks after congenital 
abnormality as the commonest 
cause of death in babies between 
the ages of two weeks and one 
year. It has a peak incidence 
between the second and fourth 
month and kills about 1,200 
otherwise apparently healthy 
British babies annnaBy. The 
figures remain surpri sing ly con- 
stant, it affects all classes al- 
though there is a statistical 
relationship to poor home condi- 
tions and most often strikes in 
the winter months when viral 
infections are rampant. 

Doctors mm recognize a near- 
miss cot death syndrome which 
is estimated to affect between two 
and three times the numbers who 
die. 


The current theory is that the 
immature respiratory centre in 
the brain, which controls breath- 
ing, switches off, usually during 
sleep, possibly as a reaction to an 
infection by woe of the respira- 
tory viruses which without this 
fatal complication would have 
only caused a transitory illness. 

Research workers believe that 
.there are other ways in which the 
respiratory centre may be affect- 
ed: one possibility is laryngeal 
spasm induced by the inhalation 
of food which has been regurgi- 
tated because of an tuusnaDy tax 
sphincter between the stomach 
and gutlett. Some doctors feel 
that an alarm system which 
warns parents if the baby stops 
breathing is helpful, bat the 
evidence for this is disputed. 


The baby's breathing can be 
started by stimulating a respira- 
tory centre by s halting, or month 
to mouth resuscitation. 

Fo r parents, a sudden death 
without time for emotional adap- 
tation heightens the tragedy and 
produces the inevitable feeling of 
guilt of the “if only variety*'. 

Parents need much comfort 
and support for many months to 
come to terms with their grief 
and gatit The Foundation for the 
Study for Infant Deaths (4 
Grosvenor Place, SWL, tel 01 
235 1721), as wefl as contribut- 
ing to research, gives parents 
nationwide counselling and ad- 
vice. 

Dr Thomas Stnttaford 


centre stage, of wanting to 
enliven the long faces and 
show that grief could be 
borne with good humour, 
was closely followed by an 
intensely private sense of 
overwhelming misery, to be 
vented in remote comers, 
perhaps for weeks to come. 

My wife joined me, 
brought to the hospital by an 
equally grief-struck neigh- 
bour whom we had asked 
only two days previously to 
be a godfather to the little 
baby. And then Jessica was 
carried in to us looking 
oblivious, as if she was still 
merely sleeping, albeit pallid 
from some unseen Dracula. 
We could have stayed there 
forever, the three of us: time 
suspended over a sleeping 
baby too young to know 
suffering and sadness, or so 
we hoped. It seemed the most 
natural thing to kiss and 
cuddle her. She still bore her 
lovely baby smelL We cried 
and we kissed her but she 
wouldn't wake up. The chap- 
lain baptised her, and it 
helped: so did the genuine 
and totally unmorbid offer 
that we could see her any 
time we wished over the next 
couple of days. 

The police arrived, kindly 
but caricatures, and went 
through the motions re- 
quired of the law. Basic 


information was recorded 
meticulously in longhand, 
then there was a brief ex- 
ternal examination of the 
baby that seemed pointless: 
isn’t the post-mortem suf- 
ficient. and how is your 
ordinary policeman, loyal 
and stout-hearted though he 
be. able to interpret external 
evidence that might indicate 
a battered baby when com- 
petent doctors sought this 
both before and after ? 

No matter - anything that 
solves the conundrum of cot 
death is welcome, and at least 
our policeman followed us 
home and inspected the 
circumstances: someone 
might eventually benefit Her 
little carrycot still smelt of 
her, and there wasn't a trace 
of vomit on the sheets. 

So now there is the paper- 
work and the necessary 
bureaucracy: the inquest af- 
ter the autopsy, the funeral 
and the burial of so many 
hopes and uncertain aspira- 
tions. In a sense, grief re- 
mains a comfort, retaining 
the immediacy of the loved 
one and perhaps easing the 
stranglehold of the stark 
truth. Finally there will be 
just the memories, of a baby- 
girl physically unblemished 
who looked the soul of 
happiness and was almost 
too good to be true. We all 
have many blessings, but 
perhaps one shouldn't count 
them. Imogen, Jessica's 
three-year-old sister, 
summed it up an hour 
ago: “Don't worry 
Mummy, you must 
have another little 
baby. It’s very precious.”*

An oil price rise to savour 


It was the price on the 
bo! ties that brought me to an 
emergency stop m the base- 
ment of The Conran Shop. 
Did they hold liquid gold or 
had someone's pen had a slip 
of the. -noughts? Badia a 
Cofribuono was the juiciest at 
£18.50 a litre, and Pasolini the 
cheapest at £8.80.- In between, 
there was .Trattoria DeUVgo 
at £ 1 1.93 and - Casiellare for 
£1230.-

been given away, but -what • 
could be the difference be-, 
’tween these and the £3.90, at

grocer round the cornOrthavl • 
had been using with pleasure 
for the p^si three years ? 

Extra vijrgfe was the answer. 
For any purpose other than 
the Italian olive oil business, , 
■virginity is other absent or 
present. it isnot a qualifiable 
commodity. But ihe oil trade 
recognizes Four ranks of vir- 
ginity, descending from eara

In technical terms. the dif

the peppers in a paper or 
plastic bag for half an hour or 
so, after which time the skins 
will peel off easily. 

Cm the peeled peppers into 
narrow strips, discarding the 
seeds and stalks. Put the strips 
in a shallow ovenproof , disb 
and dribble the oil over them. 
Give them a couple of turns ot 
the pepper grinder and put the 
dish in a preheated, moderate- 
ly hot oven (19(rC/375"F, gas 
mark 5) for 10 to 15 minutes. 
The peppers should behot and 
a bit floppy, but not really 
cooked. 

Serve them alone, hot or 
warm, as a first course with 
good bread.

form umbrellas protected 
from the sun by dry walls. 
Here the olives share space 
with caper plants and the 
vines of Ztbibbo, a type ol 
Moscato. The ofl here is 
exquisitely fine and perfumed, 
a rarity which, like the 
Moscato extra di Pamelleria, 
cannot be duplicated ' any- 
where else”. 

In the same way that fine 
wine is for sippers not gulpers, 
the best olio extra vergine de 
oliva is generally used as a 
condiment, not a cooking 
medium. .Now that I have 
made the acquaintance oi 
Badia - a Coltibuono. 
Castellare, Trattoria -DeUVgo 
and the Pasolini I concede 
that, they are. vastly more 
interesting than “the bland oil I 
had been using. They are also 

dfffieienx'ftom the sometimes 
rank and heavy virgin oils of 
Greece and Spain. 

Serious oil buyers “taste” it 
by rubbing a few drops into 
iheir palms then sniffing the 


aroma released into their 
cupped hands. This is a good 
way of appreciating the differ- 
ence between rectified and 
virgin oils, and, when the 
opportunity affords, of tasting 
exira.virgin oils from a variety 
of growers and regions. 

Once the taste buds have 
been lined up to take notice ot 
these aristocratic oils, dishes 
that show them off are re- 
quired. .These tend to be 
exceptionally simple, like the 
warm salad of red peppers 
which came about because the 
peppers were not as ripe as 
they might have been and it 
was a bitter night to be eating 
raw, cold vegetables. 

Warm red pepper salad

Cook the spaghetti in plenty 
of boiling salted water. To be 
authentically Italian it should 
be on the toothy side of tender

Crush the garlic with a 
piacb of salt, using the flat of a 
knife against a board, and 
chop the pepper, discarding 
the seeds. Heat the oil in a 
frying pan and add the garlic 
and pepper. Simmer until the 
garlic is transparent but not 
browned. 

Drain the spaghetti and put 
it in a warm bowL Pour the 
oil, garlic and red pepper over 
it Season with black pepper, 
toss and serve at once. 

If the spaghetti is ready 
before the sauce, take it off the 
heat aud pour a cupful of cold 
water or a few ice cubes into 
the pan. This will stop it 
cooking further, but keep it 
warm. Drain when the sauce is 
ready. 


M ess Carrie James 
lived in a sloping 
cottage ntaiU* from 
the timbers and square-head- 
ed nails of an old convict hullc 
it overlooked Hobart and the 
harbour below. She was 94 
and as scrawny as a heron, 
her speech was rambling and 
she craned her head forward 
as she tried to concentrate. 

Her eyes were fierce in 
their intensity and she had 
total recall of the past, re- 
membering Hobart as a con- 
vict town where the freed 
women stood behind their 
gates smoking day pipes and 
spitting at tbs few passing 
settlers. “They hated the 
migrants”, she told me, 
“They bated everyone”. I was 
talking to an eye-witness of 
one of the most shameful 
episodes in British colonial 
history. 

I met Carrie James in 1961, 
and she provided the inspira- 
tion for aroond 20 years of 
research and a noveL 
Tasmania then seemed the 
most tnmqnfl place yon cotdd 


the Moodiest spots o a earth. 
The British killed off a nim a ls 
and wiped out the indigenons 
population. The convicts 
shipped out from Britain and 
Ireland persevered against a 
horrible injustice. In jn$t five 
years, from J841 to 1845, as 
many as 15,546 male convicts 
were sent there, compared 
with 1,605 to New South 
Wales. 

Some 50,000 men and 
10,000 women were trans- 
ported to Van Diemen’s 
Land, which as Tasmania has 
a present-day population of 
only 430,000. 

O ne woman was sent out 
for stealing a piece of 
rMhhlNo wonder her 
tombstone was inscribed: 
“Farewell old world, I've had 
enough of thee”. Another was 
so poor that she lived on 
potatoes and ate wisps of her 
hair after someone told her 
this would prevent worms. 
Desperate one night, she set 
fire to herself and burnt to 
death. Hobart was a tough 
little town. 

I knew little of this until 
Carrie James recalled the 
“sad old days”. The convicts 
were assigned as servants or

The old lady of 
convict island 


Behind Tasmania’s 
beauty is an ugly 
past A new novel 
telling its story has 
been inspired by a 
remarkable woman 

joined the chain-gangs, build- 
ing roads and bridges. If they 
defied authority, they were 
sent to a penal settlement 
Macquarie Harbour was the 
first, founded in 1822 on the 
wild west coast With violent 
storms from the Antarctic in 
the winter and rain for 300 
days in the year, it was so 
remote and unpractical that it 
was abandoned 10 years fatter 
and replaced by Port Arthur 
on the opposite coast 

C arrie remembered two 
convicts with special 
affection. “There was 
Charles, tail man, he got 
subservient yon know, mother 
wouldn't ha ve that If he came 
to onr home he was treated 
like a gentleman. He was 
never flogged, he came of a 
good family.” 

The other convict was a 
sailor. His crime was set oat 
in a page of notes taken down 
by Carrie’s father, George 
James, carriage decorator; 
“Richard Stanton of Her 
Majesty’s Navy at your ser- 
vice. After service of 20 
months an event happened 
that altogether altered the 
coarse of my life's career. Her 
Majesty Qneen Victoria paid 
an official visit to the Fleet.” 
When the sailors manned the 
yard-arms in salute, Stanton 
fell onto the deck, colliding 
with a midshipman. For this 
be was sentenced to two years 
transportation, which meant 
life. On his arrival he joined a 
settler's family as a servant - 
“1 was given two large bas- 
kets of ladies' caderclotliing 
to wash and iron. 1 remarked 
I would not disgrace the flag I 
sailed under, and danced 
Mack's the lad with a 
hornpipe' on top of them.” 

For this impertinence, be 
was sent to Port Arthur for 25 
lashes. An average of 22 per 
cent of male convicts were 
flogged, receiving anything 
from 19 to 50 strokes. Stan- 
ton was one of the few to be 
released and Carrie saw the 
scars on his hack; “Like a 
piece of leather, scored, 
scored, great weals, cross to 
cross. Oh, can't they rain a 
life. Always a cane on top of 
the Bible, never a cuddle, 
never a kiss.” 

The mills of Port Arthur 
are all the more shocking 
because their surroundings 
are beaotiftiL It became the 
third largest town in the 
colony, witi a church, hospi- 
tal. officers' bungalows, a 
village green and parade 
ground — ami, of course, the 


Sheraton Hotels 

In our article “Emergency 
ward lsiam”(Wednesday 
Page, February 19) we referred 
io the “appalling conditions at 
a former Sheraion Hotel that 
had been condemned”. We 
have been asked to make it 
dear that the hotel fell into 
disrepair and was condemned 
long after it had ceased io be 
under Sheraton management 



Hence the targe asylcm near- 
by. Back in England 1 was 
haunted by the memory of 
Port Arthur and started ray 
research, which has lingered 
over 20 years. 

As 1 approached the climax 
10 Swansdowne, I found that 
the end of transportation 
coincided with the date I had 
reached. Celebrations were 
held throughout the island in 
1853 to mark the victor}' of 
the Anti-Transportation 
League as the Order-in- 
Conncil making Van 
Diemen's Land a penal colo- 
ny was revoked.

Carrie James: eye-witness to 
a shameful colonial episode 

prison blocks. The pretty 
shaded avenues and trim 
flower-beds were a mockery 
of the true nature of the place. 

No light or sound was 
allowed to penetrate the soli- 
tary cells, and the convicts 
were forced to wear wool 
masks with narrow slits when 
they exercised or went to 
church. Ironically, this spe- 
cial treatment was supposed 
to be an improvement on the 
previous physical torture. 

Few men could withstand 
the silence and the loneliness 
of the dark — it broke their 
minds if not their bodies. 


i he Hon Richard Dry,

ton, made a speech 
declaring that the time had 
come to change the name of 
Van Diemen's Land — so 
evocative of crime and 
wretchedness — to the more 
euphonious one of Tasmania. 

Carrie kept the Gowers I

wimpish Tory Matthew Parris is 
to resign his "safe Derbyshire seat

cannot wait for him to grill the 
Prime Minister about allegedly

Bishop John' Taylor said that" if

Labour moderate Ben Lucas must 
be savouring his victory over a 
Militant-supported candidate in 
the weekend election for the 
chairmanship of the National 
Organization of Labour Students. 
It comes a week after the Labour 
parrv inquiry into Liverpool said 
it was “penurbed” by allegations 
of Militant violence in which 
Lucas was a victim. At the 1 984 
annual meeting of Liverpool Col- 
lege of Further Education Labour 
Club. Lucas and an NOLS na-

for a copy of the membership list, 
the composition of which was a 
matter of speculation, and refused 
to give it back at the end of the 
meeting. Whereupon, it was al- 
leged. two Militant youth activists 
beat them up. A complaint was 
lodged with Tony Muiheam. the 
district party chairman, but no 
action was taken.

Surfacing again 

Almost a vear after police arrived 
in St Lucia to question former 
HMS Conqueror officer Neranda 
Sethia about the missing 
“Belgrano log book", new ques- 
tions arc to be raised about the 
investigation. On Friday, Labour 
foreign affairs spokesman George 
Foulkes is to ask the Attorney 
General if he is satisfied the 
inquiry into the disappearance has 
been property conducted and 
whether it has been the subject of 
complaints. His questions follow a 
new fiurrv of police interest in 
Sethia. who. while admitting tak- 
ing Admiralty charts from the 
submarine which sank the Bel- 
grano. has always strongly denied 
pocketing the log book. Although 
last spring he was told he had been 
eliminated from the hunt, a naval 
officer friend in Portsmouth was 
questioned about Sethia's visit to 
Britain in the autumn. Intimi- 
dated by the police's interest, 
Sethia became convinced that a 
case was being built up against 
him- Could Inspector Ron Hardy

Help victims— and beat crime 

by John Spencer 


When the women Christopher 
Mcah had sexually abused won a 
total of £17.000 damages against 
him in the High Court, some 
hailed it as a landmark decision. It 
was really no such thing, because 
the v ictims of sexual attacks, as of 
other crimes, have always been 
able to sue the criminal for 
damages in the civil courts. An 
action for damages is worth the 
trouble and risk involved only if 
the defendant is good for a large 
sum of money . The Mcah case was 
exceptional only because the rap- 
ist was fully solvent. 


Many criminals who are not 
worth suing civilly could be made 
to pay their victims something rf. 
as with fines, the state undertook 
the tiresome and costly job of 
squeezing the money out of them. 
To this end. the criminal courts 
were given limited powers to 
make compensation orders in 
1^72. and in 1*^82 their powers 
were greatly extended. These new 
powers reflect a trend in modern 
penal thinking which condescends 
to nonce the victim as well as the 
criminal. But it is widely felt that 


compensation orders do not work 
well. 

It is not merely that there arc 
curious anomalies in when they 
are available; or that most crim- 
inals are too broke to pay any- 
thing Frequently, it seems, orders 
are not nude simply because it is 
nobody's job to ask for them. The 
v ictim is not entitled to ask the 
court for an order, so one is made 
only if the prosecution chooses to 
askfor it. or if the court happens to 
think of it unasked. 

The root of me problem is that 
the v ienm of a crime still docs not 
officially exist. In sharp contrast to 
Europe, where the victim has a 
right to be made a party to the 
prosecution, in England a public 
prosecution is a duel between the 
state and the accused. His inability 
to ask for a compensation order is 
only one of the results. 

Probably the most infuriating 
consequence lor most victims is 
that they arc often left completely 
in the dark about the progress of 
the case. The police generally tell 


the victim when a suspect has 
been caught. Bui he is not told, let 
alone consulted, about what of- 
fences the suspect will be tried for. 
Nor. docs he have any say in the 
matter if the prosecution even- 
tually bargains a plea of guilty to 
something trivial in return for a 
serious charge being dropped. 

If the \ icum does go to court he 
may have no chance to give his 
side of the story. If the defendant 
pleads not guilty, the victim will 
be called as a prosecution witness 
and so will got his say. But the 
overwhelming majority of defen- 
dants plead guilty, and then no 
prosecution witnesses arc called. 
After a guilty plea it is possible, 
and quite usual, for the def- 
endant's lawyer to plead in mitiga- 
tion of sentence that it was really 
the victim, not the defendant, who 
was to blame. If the court suspects 
the story told in mitigation to be 
false it has a discretion to call 
witnesses, but it is not bound to do 
so. The victim cannot insist on 
being heard. 


In iheir recent study I ietiim in 
the Criminal Justice System. Jo- 
ann a Shapland and her colleagues 
visiiod 276 people who had been 
robbed, battered, raped or as- 
saulted. and asked them at inter- 
vals as the cases against their 
attackers progressed whether they 
were satisfied with what was going 
on. Although most were very 
pleased with the promptness, sym- 
pathy and efficiency of the police 
when they first arrived. . many 
became increasingly disappointed 
with criminal justice as the case 
went on. By the end some were so 
fed up that they vowed they would 
not bother to report an offence 
another time. 

This is serious. If the police are 
to catch those who commit 
crimes, they need above all the 
victims' co-operation. Greater 
consideration for the victim is not 
merely desirable as a painkiller for 
the ill effects of crime. It is 
essential as a weapon, against 
crime itself.

Nicholas Ashford on the battle for European public opinion 


As the Geneva arms talks went 
into recess yesterday, the United 
States and the Soviet Union began 
shaping up for a new battle to 
persuade European public opinion 
of the merits of their recent 
respective proposals for ending 
the arms race. 

It is alw ays possible to detect the 
beginning of a new superpower 
peace offensive by the sudden 
increase in the number of invita- 
tions to attend briefings and other 
functions at the US and Soviet 
embassies. The Russians were first 
off the mark, as they have 
consistently been since Gor- 
bachov came to power, with a 
series of briefings at the end of last 
month. Ostensibly these were to 
discuss the Soviet party congress 
but in fact dealt mainly with the 
far-reaching programme for elim- 
inating nuclear weapons by the 
year -000 which Gorbachov un- 
veiled on January 1 5. 

The key role in the Soviet 
propaganda effort in this country 
has been played by Guerman 
Gvenisadze. the articulate and 
persuasive number two at the 
Soviet embassy. His message: 
neither superpower could win a 
nuclear war or an arms race, and 
the only realistic way to prevent 
both is for the West to negotiate 
on the basis of Gorbachov's plan. 
He also emphasized the steps 
which Moscow has taken, notably 
its seven-month-old unilateral 
freeze on nuclear testing, in an 
attempt to reduce tension. 

This week it has been the 
Americans* turn. Paul Nitze, 



Take cover, 
they’re talking 


President Reagan's special arms 
adviser, and Jack Matlock. Soviet 


and European affairs specialist on 
the National Security Council, 
have been in London proclaiming 
the merits of the plan which 
President Reagan sent to Moscow 
as the party congress was about to 
get under way. 

Although they say that Nato is 
united behind the Reagan plan, 
there have already been dif- 
ferences between the Europeans 
and Americans about how to 
respond to Gorbachov, and it is 
feared that these divisions could 
be revived if the Soviet proposals 
capture European public opinion. 
In the American camp there is 
much talk about the need for Nato 
solidarity and to beware Soviet 
attempts to sow discord between 
the US and its European allies. 

The main reason for American 
disquiet lies in the superficially 
tantalizing plan which Gorbachov 
has put forward for eliminating 
medium-range (INF) missiles (So- 
viet $S-20s and American cruise 
and Pershing 2s) from Europe 
over the next five to eight years. 
To add allure to his plan he has 
deliberately decoupled an agree- 
ment on medium-range weapons 
from an agreement to bon “Star 
Wars"- type space weapons as he 
had earlier been insisting. 

The Soviet proposal contains an 
important innovation. For the 
first time the Kremlin is not 
demanding “compensation” for 
British and French nuclear forces. 
Instead Gorbachov has proposed 
that the British and French deter- 
rents should be frozen at existing 
levels and that there should be a 
ban on the transfer of Tridem DS 
missiles to Britain. 

The existence of independently 
controlled nuclear weapons in 
Britain and France capable of 
striking al the Soviet heartland has 
long been a source of concern 


peace again 


tothe Soviet leadership. The Brit- 
ish and French forces are puny at 
present compared with the 10.000 
or so nuclear warheads in the 
Soviet arsenal, but both countries 
plan a big expansion of their 
nuclear capacity over the next few 
years. In Britain's case the ac- 
quisition of Trident at a cost of 
more than £10 billion could mean 
an eight-fold increase in retal- 
iatory strength to about 500 
warheads by the year 2000. 

Reagan has firmly rejected the 
Soviet proposal, arguing that the 
US does not have the authority to 
negotiate on behalf of third par- 
ties. Britain and France are 
equally adamant that they cannot 
accept restrictions which would 
make their nuclear deterrents 
obsolete in a few years time. 

The Americans believe that the 
Russians do not seriously expea 
them to give way on this issue and 
are using it as a bargaining chip to 
extract concessions from the 
Americans in other arras. How- 
ever, it is recognized in Wash- 
ington, as well as in London and 
Paris, that Britain and France 
could be made to appear dan- 
gerously isolated if the question of 
modernizing their forces was seen 
as the main obstacle to agreement 
on eliminating medium-range 
weapons from Europe. 

This could become a major 
political issue in Britain, where 
both Labour and the Alliance are 
opposed to Trident It could also 
add fuel to isolationist and anti- 
European sentiment in the US. 

The American counter-offer on 
medium-range missiles excludes 
the British and French nuclear 
forces. Instead Reagan has put 
forward a plan that appears to go 


one better than Gorbachov’s by 
seeking tn eliminate all such 
missiles from Europe and Asia in 
three years. 

Under the Reagan plan both 
sides would agree to reduce their 
missile launchers in Europe to 140 
each during 1987 and there would 
be proportional reductions in 
Asia. There would be a further 5C 
per cent cut in Europe and Asia in 
1 988 leading to their total elimina- 
tion the following year. 

British and French missiles 
would be included later when (and 
if) Washington and Moscow made 
progress in scaling down their 
strategic weapons arsenals. Both 
have called for 50 per cent cuts in 
strategic weapons. If they were 
eventually able to reach agreement 
on a ceiling of 4,500 warheads 
each then, in the words of one 
senior American official, “there 
ought to be scope for multilateral 
talks involving Britain, France 
and China as well.” 

In his reply to Gorbachov. 
Reagan also insisted that there 
must be a “global” elimination o< 
medium-range weapons, in other 
words that a solution must not 
exclude Asia. 

There was near panic in Tokyo 
when the Americans expressed 
initial interest in Gorbachov’s 
January 1 5 proposals and General 
Edward Rowny, another Reagan 
arms adviser, had to be sent to the 
Far East to assure America's 
friends and allies in the region that 
he would not agree to a deal that 
excluded them. The Europeans 
were also worried that if SS-20s, 
which are highly mobile, were left 
in Soviet Asia they could easily be 
transported to Europe. 

Although European govern- 


ments profess full support for 
Reagan's latest offer, there is still 
concern that Europe might be left 
militarily vulnerable if the Ameri- 
cans agree to withdraw their 
Pershings and cruises in exchange 
for the removal of Soviet SS-20s. 

First, the Europeans, particu- 
larly West Germany, are worried 
about the presence of large num- 
bers of short-range missiles in 
Eastern Europe. 

Second, they are apprehensive 
that a “zero-zero” missile solution 
would weaken the transatlantic 
link between Western Europe and 
the US strategic deterrent and 
leave them vulnerable to the 
Warsaw Pact’s huge superiority in 
conventional weapons. Although 
the Americans make a link be- 
tween progress in the nuclear 
missile talks to progress in other 
security areas, US officials have 
admitted that an agreement on 
medium-range weapons is not 
conditional on a reduction in 
Soviet conventional forces. 

In his speech at the opening of 
the Soviet party congress last 
week. Gorbachov indicated that 
the next US-Soviet summit would 
hinge on American readiness to 
reach a deal on medium-range 
weapons or a nuclear test ban. By 
making such linkage, even though 
he was not setting preconditions, 
he was clearly pressing for further 
US concessions. 

He is unlikely to succeed as far 
as medium-range missiles are 
concerned. The American officials 
who have been in London have 
made it dear that Reagan's latest 
offer stands as it is (although there 
could be some flexibility on 
missiles in Asia) and that it is up 
to the Russians to move towards 
the US position. If they do then an 
agreement would be within reach. 

Nor are the Americans prepared 
to budge on the question of a test 
ban. Apart from doubts on how 
such a ban could be verified, the 
Americans insist, in the words of 
one official, that “we must con- 
tinue testing so long as we rely on . 
nudear weapons for our main line 
of defence.” In other words there 
can be no comprehensive test ban 
at least until nudear arsenals have 
been cut back.

Now Nigeria looks for an African answer 


After an initial period of Wesi- 
minsler-style democracy, a succes- 
sion of military coups and a 

g roiractcd civil war, Nigeria could 
e heading for one-party rule 
when General Babangida's mili- 
tary administration restores power 
to the civilians in 1990. 


A commission recently started 
taking evidence on the best pos- 
sible solution to Nigeria’s inher- 
ently instability ana is due to 
report at the end of the year. But. 
during a recent visit to Lagos. I 
was told by a senior government 
minister that a one-party state 
would appear the best solution. 

“That would be the African — 
the Nigerian — solution,’’ he said. 
“No Nigerian village has two or 
more chiefs. A chief is chosen and 
then he has to work with all the 
different groups and factions, 
taking their views into consid- 
eration before deriding on a 

S olicy. That way dissent is aired 
ul it is done within the system. 
We cannot afford the vicious 
imer-party antagonisms of the last 
civilian period.” 

The minister was subsequently 
told that he had spoken out of turn 
by pre-empting the commission's 


report, but his views are neverthe- 
less thought to re II eel those of 
Ba bangi da, who is trying to run 
Nigeria along the lines of that 
hypothetical village chief. 

Since he came to power in an 
army counter-coup last August, 
Babangida has surprised Nigeri- 
ans not only by the speed of the 
changes he has made but also his 
distinctly consultative style of 
government. 

Because he is anxious to know 
what people think, one of his first 
acts after assuming power was to 
repeal the draconian Decree 4 
which had muzzled the press for 
the previous 20 months. Nigeria’s 
13 national dailies responded by 
being embarrassingly fawning to- 
wards his administration. But the 
real significance of the move was 
to demonstrate to the people that 
he iniended to govern with their 
consent. His method is relatively 
simple: fly a kite, monitor the 
reaction, then act. 

The public debate over the IMF 
was a perfect example of the 
doctrine. The I MF greeted the new 
administration's appeal for new 
lines of credit by. making any 
further loans conditional on a stiff 
austerity package. But Nigerians 


had grown xenophobic after years 
of being told that “foreigners had 
ripped off the country”. 

Babangida called for a national 
debate on whether to accept the 
IMF loan, then acceded to the 
popular view and refused it, again 
to newspaper acclaim. But he men 
brought in a “home- grown” 
austerity programme that went for 
beyond the IMF medicine. To 
general surprise there was no 
dissent He had involved the army 
in the exercise so that when he 
imposed a wage cut on all govern- 
ment employees, including the 
army, there was no protest from 
the barracks. 


When he asked a tribunal to 
examine the cases of ex-President 
Shagari and his deputy, Alex 
Ekwueme — both are still being 
held without trial - it recom- 
mended their release. After pro- 
tests by the press, the Aimed 
Forces Council gave an assurance 
that it would take the final 
decision after considering all 
points of view. 


The press reaction was predict- 
able given that it is largely owned 
by southern Christians who sup- 
ported the United Party of Ni- 


geria, the chief opposition to 
Shagari's National Party of Ni- 
geria (NPN). But Babangida had 
been able to appease the NPN's 
supporters in the north by making 
dear his intention to release 
Shagari while assuring the south 
that be would take their views into 
account. In the meantime the 
public have been prepared for 
Shagari's release, which is now 
simply a matter of time. 

Babangida damaged his reputa- 
tion on foeone occasion when he 
foiled to follow his own ground- 
rules. That was over his derision 
tn January to join the Jiddah- 
based Islamic Conference Organ- 
ization. Again the Christian- 
dominated press was furious. How 
could constitutionally secular Ni- 
geria put its name to a body 
pledged to further the interests of 
Islam? Some Christian leaders 
spoke of a holy war unless the 
derision was reversed. Religious 
divisions which had been kept in 
check seemed liklely to destabilize 
Babangida. For once he instructed 
the press to cease further comment 
on the issue since it was “against 
the national interest”.

One solicitor 
who says no 


The legal profession has made a 
monumental mess of its public 
relations in recent years. People 
now assume the worst of us. 
Perhaps they always have. 

So it would be a double irony if 
thfa public cynicism worked in 
favour of fusion of solicitors and 
barristers simply because they are 
against it. Yet that is the prospect 

This is increased by the 
assidious work of two small 
groups of lawyers. On one flank 
there has always been a broadly 
negative view of the spbt pro- 
fession and, in particular, the part 
of the Bar within it To them the 
ivory towers of foe Inns of Court, 
still inhabited mainly by public 
school, Oxbridge men (few 
women yet) are irredeemable bas- 
tions of elitism, out of touch 
financially and culturally with the 
l pgat tribula tions of ordinary folk. 

The other, very different group, 
made up exclusively of solicitors, 
resents its exclusion as advocates 
from foe higher courts mid foe 
concomitant denial of high ju- 
dicial office. 

After foe recent publication of 
foe “discussion proposals” of the 
Law Society’s Contentious Busi- 
ness Committee, there is for foe 
first time within foe Society a 
focus for fusion. With Fleet Street 
almost unanimously in favour, foe 
profession could find itself 
bounced into a shotgun marriage. 

The authors of this paper have 
done a remarkably effective public 
relations job. Although their pro- 
posals would undoubtedly lead to 
a de facto fusion, with direct access 
by members of foe public to what 
remained of the Bar, they have 
been sold to the public as no more 
than “a possible programme for 
reform”. Fusion as such is not 
mentioned. 

Apart from the charge of elit- 
ism. in which there is more 
misunderstanding than truth, the 
main engine for ftision in foe 
public mind is “why should we 
have to pay for two lawyers when 
one will do?” In short, is not the 
split legal profession just another 
means of preserving jobs for foe 
boys at public expense? 

Fusion was, of course, oneof the 
main issues considered by the 
Benson Royal Commission on 
Legal Services, which reported in 
1979. it concluded firmly “that it- 
is in foe public interest for the 
legal profession to be organized, as 
at present, in two branches”. 

On foe critical question of 
expense, having done ns elaborate 
be&to find and weigh the data, foe 
Benson inquiry was unable to 
come to any firm conclusion. But 
what the majority of solicitors — 
myself included- will tell you is 
that using the Bar invariably saves 
their clients money. Banisters are, 
to put it simply, more cost 
effeaive. 

This is partly a result of their 
having no direct contact with foe 
public and its money. Thus they 
can function on comparatively 
modest overheads — perhaps one 
clerk and a secretary to five or six 
busy banisters, with low equip- 
ment costs. 

Given those arrangments, most 
barristers are able to be either 
specialist advocates or true

Addresses with 
dressing 


One of the strangest human 
impulses I know is the desire to 
have a long address. It starts in 
schooldays with foe urge to write 
in your books and foe feet that you 
are John Smith. Upper V, Gan- 
grene School, Gangrene, Derby- 
shire, England, Britain, Europe, 
Earth, The Universe. When you 
discover that you are not the first 
schoolchild to think of this joke, in 
feet about the four billionth, you 
give it up and you forget all about 
il You might well think, if you 
ever think about it at all, that foe 
habit never comes back. 

But ft does. You go to college, 
you graduate in chemistry, -you 
join a pharmaceutical firm called 
Gangrene Inc and pretty soon you 
find yourself working at their HQ 
ax Outer Wall, EC1. You znjght 
expea that your address would 
then be: John Smith, 155 Outer 
Wall, ECt. 

But it isn’t, is ft? What it is is 
this: 

John Smith 
Assistant Manager 
Sedatives Division 
Gangrene Inc 
5th Floor 
Gangrene House 
155 Outer Wall 
ECI 

Now, this is nothing to do with 
the ambition of John Smith to 
have a long address. It is all to do 
with the ambition of foe 
pharmaceutical boss. Lord Gan- 
grene, to have an imposing ad- 
dress, and we haven't pat on foe 
post code or foe number of the 
room. There is no need for foe 
address to include Gangrene Inc 
(ft is the only firm m the buil ding) 
or Assistant Manager (everyone in 
Sedatives knows who John Smith 
is) or Gangrene House, which is 
just a fancy name given to the 
nondescript office block at 1SS 
Outer Wafl. But ft all looks very 
imposing. It is as much as Lord 
Gangrene can do not to add, 
England. Europe, Earth. 

At night Smith goes. home to a 
very simple address. It is 1S5, 
Raglan Road, London Wl] - foe 
sort of address any postman could 
find, being as H is between 153 and 
157 Raglan Road. But it is not the 


occupying quite a pocket in 
Oxfordshire. Any letter addressed 


to Lord Gangrene, Gangrene

him. On the whole, however, he 
• would rather you wrote to:

foe profession and public at huge; 
or wiD set up their own firms. This 
will be made possible fey the 
proposal to allow the public direct

pect. 

By denying general practice an a 
its clients equality of access to a 
thriving, “reserved” Bar, the 
smaller firms (in which eight out. 
of 10 solicitors still work) would 
no longer be able adequately to 
serve the complete range of clien-

employers. General practice 
would eventually be stripped of its 
more challenging, rewarding 
work. That would drift to foe 
handful of expanding firms in foe 
larger centres with sufficient work 
to support the required expert

That rn turn would reinforce the

foe brightest who realized the 
virtues of foe alternatives or had a 
clear sense of social obligation 
would eschew the lusher City

In an age when the parlous 
effects of centralization are there

and barristers undoubtedly has a

lines out of a three-line address. It 
doesn’t make ft any easier for the 
postman; no extra -information is 
contained, only packaging. In feet, 
it sometimes makes it harder, 
because when people write back to 
John Smith they tend to indude 
“Oakview” and leave out the 
number 1 55, and Raglan Road is a 
long road to find “Oakview”. 

Meanwhile, Lord Gangrene is 
going home to his house in foe 
country, Gangrene Towers. It is a 
big house, with big grounds.

THE TIMES WEDNESDAY MARCH 5 1986 



Complaining about intimida- 
tion is not enough. It is dear 
that on Monday there were 
* people, in. Northern Ireland 
who wished to go to work; it is 
equally clear that the authori- 
ties were unwilling to make all 
possible efforts to ensure their 
free passage through road- 
blocks and overt threats from 
demonstrators. This is a sepa- 
rate issue from the continuing 
argument over which side won 
the numbers game when the 
stoppage was over. The prin- 
ciple remains the same for one 
person going to work as it does 
fora thousand. 

. This government has done 
much to protect workers 1 in- 
dividual rights when they are 
at risk from unions. That 
commitment has dearly not 
carried over the water. On 
Monday the Royal Ulster 
Constabulary appeared to op- 
erate an informal distinction 
between rescuing people who 
were physically at risk, and not 
intervening when people were 
simply being prevented from 
going about their business. Of 


TO PEACE 


the Army, there was little to be 
seen. .... 

In ta k i n g this approach, the 
government is sending dan- 
Serous signals both to strike 
organisers and to those who 
are inclined to defy the further 
strike calls for longer periods 
which are likely to follow. Well 
ra advance of the strike, 
government spokesmen were 
confidently asserting that not 
only trouble but roadblocks 
and illegal picketing would be 
swiftly nipped in the bud. To 
feil to keep such promises is a 
sign of weakness which ran 
only encourage the strikers 
and discourage those who 
disagree with them. 

The government no doubt 
said to itself that a single-day 
stoppage did not justify any- 
thing but a low-key handling 
which did not overstretch the 
resources of the RUC and 
which kept the Army well out 
of sight To play it this way, it 
could be argued, was to 
maximise the chances that the 
next round would ta k e place in 
the form of talks between 
ministers and unionist poli- 


ticians rather than as another 
strike. But those chances were 
always very slight The strikers 
ami, among other things, was 
to strain the loyalties of the 
province's (mainly Protestant) 
policemen and to provoke riot 
and mayhem. 

There is only a certain 
distance that a government 
can jo to avoid this confronta- 
tion. Given the tactics on 
which unionist leaders have 
now settled, confrontation is 
beginning to look inevitable. 
There dob not seem to be any 
good reason why the Army was 
not asked to remove road- 
blocks; they have accumulated 
plenty of the necessary experi- 
ence. 

Mrs Thatcher has so far 
tried to persuade unionist 
politicians that she is open to 
negotiation and persuasion. 
That attitude can not be 
indefinitely, maintained if 
people’s freedoms and even 
safety are being deliberately 
put at risk. . A few other 
ministers hammering home 
these points would not go 
amiss . 


HERR KOHL’S TIDE OF TROUBLE 

In recent months there has 


^ appeared to be tediously little 
. doubt' about the likely out- 
come of West Germany’s next 
general election, due early in 
1987. Chancellor Kohl would 
have it, and comfortably. The 
present coalition of his own 
Christian Democrats, Herr 
Franz Josef Strauss's Christian 
Social Union and Herr Hans- 
Dietrich Genscher’s Free 
Democrats would be returned 
for another four years in office: 
Even the personal popularity 
of the opposition Social 
Democrats’ new leader, Herr 
Johannes Rau, would make no 
more than a small dent in the 
armour of the Kohl govern- 
ment The. Greens would have 
all the impact of a tomato 
” hurled at a tank. That has been 
the conventional wisdom. 

This week there is cause for 
a little more doubt The Kohl 
government has been shaken 
by a striking efectnrakrroecse 
in local elections in the state of 
Schleswig-Holstein, where the 
Christian Democrat vote sunk 
by almost six percentage 
points, nearly all of which 
went to the Social Democrats.- 
Of course local elections ra- 
west Germany, like by-elec- 
tions in Britain, are notori- 
ously unreliable pointers. But 
it behind this result there is also 
a quite exceptional challenge' 
to the position of the Chan- 
cellor, and one which may not 
so swiftly be shaken off 


Last . month public pros- 
ecutors in the Chancellor’s 
native Land, the Rhineland- 
Palatinate, announced that 
they were opening a formal 
investigation into whether he 
had made false statements to a 
local parliamentary enquiry 
concerning illegal contribu- 
tions to party funds. No 
serving Chancellor in the his- 
tory of the Federal Republic 
has faced such an investiga- 
tion. Some opinion polls sug- 
gest that in the wake of this 
announcement the 

Chancellor’s personal popular- 
ity rating fell by exactly the 
.same amount as the Christian 
Democrat vote has now fallen 
in Schleswig-Holstein - some 
six percentage points. And in 
the next few days we may 
expect an announcement from 
the federal prosecutor’s office 
as to whether or not a similar . 
investigation will be opened . 
into ■ - the-. Chancellor's-- tes- 
timony to - a Bundestag 
commission on the same sub- 
ject in the autumn of 1984, at 
die height of foe “Flick 
Affair”. 

. At that time the “Flick 
Affair”, which had already 
brought the resignations of two 
top politicians, was widely 
compared to Watergate. Yet in 
the sixteen months since 
Chancellor Kohl's awkward 
testimony to that Bundestag 
commission, the muddy water 
has got no further than his 


toecaps. Now, however, it 
might just be creeping up to his 
ankles. 

On foe original point at 
issue - the laundering of big 
business contributions to 
political parties through tax- 
exempt 'charitable' institutes - 
foe best defence is probably 
that offered by Herr Franz 
Josef Strauss. Herr Strauss 
says in effect: “we all did it”. 
This is essentially true. All foe 
established parties augmented 
their finances in this fashion. 
Nowadays the law and, we 
trust, the practices have been 
changed. (The Greens, being 
not then established, seem to 
be foe one party with clean 
hands: and have therefore 
been instrumental in keeping 
foe topic to foe fore.) 

Unfortunately this “we all 
did it” was not quite the 
defence that Chancellor Kohl 
offered to the parliamentary 
commissions. Instead, he 
more than once observed that 
‘foe did not remember” this or 
“did not know about” that. 

Chancellor Kohl has not 
been helped by a senior col- 
league who suggested he might 
have bad a “black-out” when 
answering the difficult ques- 
tions in Mainz. Yet it is far too 
soon to proclaim his demise. If 
he has shown nothing else over 
foe last few years. Chancellor 
Kohl has demonstrated a 
matchless talent to survive. 


FREEDOM ON A SUNDAY 


The Government’s attempt to 
end restrictions on Sunday 
trading has run into a greater 
degree of political resistance 
than ministers expected. This 
measure is being swamped by 
the backwash of unease on the 
Tory benches. In today’s 
political climate MPs seem 
readier to listen to the 
Sabbatarian objections of their 
constituents than to foe free- 
raarket principles of their lead- 
ers. 

The biD’s troubles have been 
exacerbated by the difficulty of 
demonstrating precise and im- 
mediate benefit Complex 
(and inevitably artificial) 
calculations by the committee 
set up under Mr Robin Auld 
suggested that foe freedom to 
open all shops on Sunday 
would marginally reduce retail 
employment. It would in- 
crease foe efficiency of the 
retail sector by accelerating foe 
disappearance of outlets which 
are alreadv vulnerable. Many 
MPs - particularly but not 
exclusively in rural areas - 
have such outlets in their 
constituencies which they 


would rather not see closed. 
Such calculations, however, 
miss foe central point of foe 
reform. 

As the Auld committee con- 
cisely stated, “foe law should 
not interfere in foe conduct of 
h uman affairs unless it serves a 
justifiable purpose”. The 
objectors are clinging to a legal 
restriction which serves none. 
The existing law is anomalous, 
complicated and hard to en- 
force. And, for all its deter- 
mined search for compromise, 
foe Auld committee could 
frame no alternative set of 
restrictions which did not 
suffer from the same defects. 

The alternatives are again 
being trotted out Since some 
of them may be adopted it is 
useful to rank them in order of 
preference. The Lords’ amend- 
ment, under which employees 
may refuse Sunday work, 
might create more part-time 
jobs but bristles with diffi- 
culties of religious discrimina- 
tion in contracts of 
employment. Timing restric- 
tions - allowing a limited 


number of hours of opening on 
a Sunday - raises foe problem 
of shops which open under foe 
present law, as well as enforce- 
ment difficulties. These lead to 
probably foe least objec- 
tionable compromise (though 
one which would sit uneasily 
alongside foe Government's 
concern with local 
government’s abuse of power): 
allowing councils to make 
their own decisions on Sunday 
trading in their areas. 

It is important to be clear 
what is implied by any of these 
continned restrictions. How- 
ever free foe law, shops will 
not open on Sunday unless 
there is a real demand for their 
services. It is this demand that 
the objectors are determined 
to frustrate, and the strength of 
their opposition itself implies 
that they believe this demand 
to be substantial. The 
construction of an anomalous 
law whose chief purpose is the 
denial of free choice is no 
proper cause for Parliament; 
still less fora Parliament of foe 
present political complexion. 


LETTERS TO THE EDITOR 


Selling off water 

From Mr David C Gibbs 
Sir. I would like to clarify two ot 
the matters referred to by Mr 
Green (February 14). ' 

The mere act of ferae a pond 
would not in itself attract a 
licence, but if water was taken 
from underground strata or by 


would be regarded as srn agri- 
cultural use from an inland water 
source of supply- ■ 

With regard to the environ- 
mental services charge, this charge 
is paid by all charge payere on a 
rateable-value basis ofassessment 
The current rate in Mr Greens 
water authority's area is I-49p ra 
the pound. The charge is payable 


Disabled drivers 

From Dr Peter Gugenfteim 
Sir, Dr Gerald Michael's difficulty 
in refusing a request to a patient 
for a disabled driver's badge is 
only a man ifestation of a wider 
problem within general practice. 

What does youj correspondent 
fed should be the'GFs position? 


Helping needy in cold spells 


From Str Kenneth Hutchison FRS 
Sir, The need for some method, 
even if less than perfect, of 
assessing the coldness of the 
climate in many different local- 
ities in Britain has been given new 
urgency through reports of people, 
usually advanced in years, who 
have died of hypothermia during 
the present cold spelL Many 
others may have suffered un- 
necessarily, being unsure of their 
qualification for reimbursement 
.of the cost of the extra feel 
required to maintain a reasonable 
temperature in their homes. 

I would propose the revival of 
publication of “degree days”. A 
degree day is a simple and 
effective measure of ‘‘coldness” 
during the preceding 24 hours. In 
practice they would be aggregated 
weekly or monthly as a measure of 
the extra feel requirement of those 
claiming the feel allowance. The 
“ chin factor” can be disregarded 
for this purpose, as those at risk 
are unlikely to be out of doors for 
long. 

The equipment required is sim- 
ple. Any population centre respon- 
sible for assessing grants should be 
able to organize the reading of a 
thermometer at intervals daring 
24 hours, or preferably change the 
graphs on a recording thermo- 
graph, or better still find the Met 
Office willing and able to supply 
figures for each locality where they 
are wanted. 

Yours faithfully,

From Mrs Jean Furness 
Sir. H looks as though cold 
weather benefits for pensioners 
and o there must always reach 
recipients too late to be of help for 
the spell for which they are 
intended. It is already recognised 
that different areas may receive 
different payments. Would h not 
be more sensible to make the 
differential apply to different sea- 
sons? 

When Government can next 
raise our benefits by £2 a week, 
why not spread the additional 
annual £104 over December to 
March, followed by a sliding scale 
downwards to enable recipients to 
acclimatise to the decrease? In that 


way £6 a week could be ensured 
for January and February, say £4 a 
week for December and March, 
leaving a lesser amount over for 
April and May. As a mother on 
social security I would welcome 
such a system. 

The prospect of winter is always 
rather depressing. This system 
would even help us to look 
forward to it. 

Yours faithfully. 

JEAN FURNESS, 

80B King Street, 

Norwich,

From Dr John Whitelege and 
others 

Sir, We are concerned about the 
current haphazard arrangements 
for dealing with DHSS payments 
to the elderly in response to cold 
weather needs. 

As professional geographers we 
are disturbed that a systematic, 
reliable and independent system 
of reporting temperature vari- 
ations has not been u tilize d by the 
DHSS in determining the circum- 
stances under which payments can 
be made. Meteorological data 
exist at a fine level of detail across 
Britain; the computer software to 
link this to DHSS areas presents 
few problems and elementary 
physical geography would allow us 
to build in other important factors 
such as wind chill, exposure, 
altitude etc. 

There are other dimensions to 
the problem- Housing type, size, 
and construction influence heat- 
retention and loss and we would 
need to know the critical threshold 
below which payments would be 
made. 

It is a source of some concern 
that those at risk from hypother- 
mia are put at greater risk because 
of an administrative failure to put 
into action systematic monitoring 
of relevant data and the closely 
associated alert mechanisms 
which would be transmitted to 
every local DHSS office. 

Yours faithfully.

Mr Churchill’s Bill 

From Mr Peter Phelan and Mr 
Tim Godfiay 

Sir, Your leader of February 24 
about the Obscene Publications 
(Protection of Children, etc) 
(Amendment) Bill very properly 
set warning bells ringing Mr 
Winston Churchill has now m a d e 
a detailed response, concentrating 
— as, to a large extent, did your 
own leader — on the broadcasting 
aspects of his Bifl. 

Our concern is the effect which 
the Bill in its present form would 
have on the publishing and dis- 
semination of many books and 
journals in the fields, among 
others, of sex and heahh educa- 
tion, medical science and art 
history and criticism. 

Mr Churchill has stated that it is 
not his intention to create a form 
of censorship for such publica- 
tions. And, indeed, they could not. 
by the wildest stretch of the 
imagination, be deemed obscene. 

Unfortunately, the “intentions” 
of those who propose legislation 
are frequently betrayed by • the 
actual words which finally make 


their way on to the statute book 1 
and the subsequent interpretation 
of those words by government 
departments and the courts. 

And there is nothing in the 
actual words now proposed which 
gives us any confidence at all that 
literary works of the kind de- 
scribed above and those who 
write, produce, sell — and indeed 
lend — them would not be pul at 
considerable risk. 

It is for these reasons that we 
have made a detailed submission 
to the House of Commons 
committee currently considering 
the BiU, urging that such threats to 
our freedoms to publish and to 
read should be removed before 
Parliament is asked to approve 
any proposed legislation in this 
area. 

Yours faithfully.

Gospel to cities 

From Mr Christopher Hammond 
Sir, The threat of redundancy to St 
Culhbert’s, Philbeach Gardens 
(letter from Fr Vine, February 22) 
must be a matter of national 
concern, for this is one of the 
finest of all Victorian churches. 

Fr Vine suggests that the find- 
ings of the report, Faith in the 
City, would support the case for 
keeping the church open. How- 
ever, the fact is that this report 
says very little about church 
buildings, indeed the symbolic 
value of churches seems to be 
entirely unrecognised. 

In their preoccupation with 
temporal matters and pro- 
grammes of social reform the 
authors of Faith in the City have 
failed to see that churches such as 
St Cuth ben's fulfil a primary 
function merely by existing: that 
they are in themselves an act of 
worship and are perpetual remind- 


ers of spiritual values. To quote 
Dr W. F. Hook, the great nine- 
teenth-century Vicar of Leeds 
“they are standing sermons" — 
and this is>rrue not only for those 
who enter, but for those who pass 
by. 

A situation such as that in the 
Earl's Court area, which is par- 
alleled in so many other places, 
tests the commitment of the 
Church to the continuing 
presentation of the faith in the 
city, a commitment from which 
concern for social conditions must 
descend, and without which the 
programmes of reform as ad- 
vocated in Faith in the City must 
be judged in purely secular terms. 
Yours faithfully.

Lost for words 

From Mr Martin Blocksidge 
Sir. As a teacher of English in a 
school which provides many 
university engineering students. 1 * 
should like to take issue with the 
six professors who (February 25) 
feel moved to write to you about 
the inadequate standards of En- 
glish amongst their undergrad- 
uates. 

All undergraduates reading sci- 
ence or engineering in the univer- 
sities are required, in order to gain 
admission to any course, to pass 
an G-lcvcl examination called 
English Language. Whilst the

sis. this subject always involves 
tests in comprehension and com- 
position. 

In comprehension, not only is 
the understanding of foe detail of 
quite a complex passage required, 
but concise and consequential 
answers arc needed in the 
candidate’s own words, if he is to 
pass. Composition papers are 
specifically created to test the 
ability to use sophisticated and 
precise language. Errors of syntax 
and spelling are penalised. 

I suggest that the reasons why 
science or engineering students 
frequently find difficulty in using 
them own language are more 


complex. This country’s educa- 
tional system stresses 
specialisation, particularly at the 
post-CWevcl stage. A student who 
may. up to the age of 16. have 
written in a variety of modes every 
day of his school career, suddenly 
has the option to cease to do so. A 
student who opts for a mathemat- 
ical or scienti f c career at the age of 
16 -plus can hardly be blamed if his 
verbal skills atrophy, as to exercise 
them at any length has become 
unnecessary. This situation can 
remain, presumably, for several 
years. 

It might, therefore, be a better 
idea if foe university departments 
represented by your correspon- 
dents made it widely known that 
they would welcome to their 
courses students who had taken, 
along with their mathematics and 
science, courses in history, lit- 
erature or languages at advanced 
level. To specify, as entrance 
requirements, only mathematical 
and scientific subjects is to create 
the very situation which the 
professors deplore.

Economics of 
power stations 

From Mr P. E. ff’e/tt 
Sir. Mr Hall (February 21) sug- 
gests that recent falls in inter- 
national oil and coal prices make a 
new coal station more economic 
than Sizewell B, the pressurised 
water reactor proposed by the 
Central Electricity Generating 
Board. Thai is not so. 

Falls in the price of oil affect the 
economics of a new coal station 
and Sizewell B equally. Each 
would reduce the CEGB’s need to 
bum oil by a similar amount A 
fall in coal prices does improve the 
relative position of a new coal 
station, but in fan Sizewell B still 
remains the more economic 
choice. 

Mr Hall quotes in support of his 
view studies made by the Cam- 
bridge Energy Research Group at 
the request of the Sizewell inquiry 
inspector, f have not been able to 
indentify the particular case he 
cites. i.e., oil and coal prices 
remaining at their 1981 levels in 
real terms. The CEGB did show- 
foe effect of constant fossil feel 
prices from 1982 and in all cases 
examined Sizewell B had an 
economic advantage over a new 
coal station. 

In the research group's exercises 
foe lowest set of forecasts for coal 
prices assumed a 40 percent fell in 
the real price of coal between 
1 980/8 1 and 1990, returning to the 
original level shortly after 2030. 
Even in this extreme case Sizewell 
B was more economic than a new 
coal station, so that the research 
group's exercises do not seem 
inconsistent with the present 
CEGB view. 

Incidentally, foe CEGB is not 
“continuing to place orders for foe 
Sizewell B station”. Design work 
is continuing, but work on main 
contracts must await the Secretary 
of State’s consent. The board has 
to be ready to start work on the 
station, if authorised, in order to 
help meet foe increasing demand 
for electricity and foe coming need 
to replace the first generation 
Magnox stations.

Police use of arms 

From Mr Norman Gunton 
Sir, The report you gave on 
February 24 of a secret report on 
police use of guns should stimu- 
late people to preserve the sensible 
but fast disappearing distinction 
between the Armed Services of foe 
Crown and other civil services. 

Too much is being asked of the 
policeman. The extent and 
complexity of law and of civil 
rights with which he is required to 
be expen is already beyond nor- 
mal human capacity. 

To be skilful and effective with 
weapons requires concentration 
and continuous training, for] 
which foe police do not have time, 
and attitudes and modes of behav- 
iour which do not fit with those 
required for beat work. 

The Armed Services provide 
teams on call to the police when 
explosives are found or appre- 
hended. The people who provide 
these services are very specially 
selected, trained and controlled by 
the Army and have only those 
duties. 

The same arrangement should 
be made to meet any proper police 
requirement for armed support on 
two grounds — practicality and the 
need to preserve all the benefits to 
society and to policemen of our 
tradition of an unarmed police. 
Yours faithfully.

The most noteworthy item of news 
in this four-page issue u.'as a 
paragraph announcing the 
formation of an institution which 

has survived to this day. Since 
then the National Lifeboat 
institution, (made Royal in 1$9S) 
has saved 1 13,000 lives. 



[Birth of the RNLI] 

SHIPWRECKED SEAMEN.- 
A public meeting was yesterday 
held at the City of London Tavern, 
for the purpose of forming a 
National Institution, to be sup- 
ported by voluntary donations and 
subscriptions, for the preservation 
of life in cases of shipwreck on the 
coasts of the United Kingdom, and ; 
for affording assistance to persons 
rescued, and for conferring rewards 
on those who preserve their fellow- 
creatures from destruction: and ] 
also for granting relief to the 
destitute families of any who might 
unfortunately perish in attempting | 
to save the lives of others. His, 
Grace the Archbishop of Canter- 1 
bury took the chair, and explained 
the objects of the meeting, at the 
same time announcing that his I 
Majesty had been pleased to , 
become the Patron of the proposed 
institution. Several resolutions 
were then moved and agreed to, 
and the management of the affairs 
of the Institution committed to the 
can? of a committee of 40 gentle- 
men, with a Treasurer. Secretary, 
and Assistants. The Bishop of 
London, the Bishop of Chester, 
Mr. Wilberforce. Mr. Manning, 
and Captain Manhy, in moving 
some of the resolutions, warmly 
eulogized the objects of the Institu- 
tion. Subscriptions to a consider- 
able amount were announced as 
already received, and further s ums 
were subscribed at the table. The 
meeting was but thinly attended, 
which was attributed to the short- 
ness of the notice given for holding 
it, as well as to the active canvass 
going on for the East India 
Direction. 

News may have been scarce but 
advertisements flourished; among 
them the following wares and 
panaceas : 

[Advertisement.]— PINDIN’S 
PATENT TRUSSES, without 
Metallic Springs, 200, Fleet- 
street.— GAWAN and Co. beg to 
inform the Public, that the follow- 
ing is from C. Everest, of 
Farningham. Kent, dated Septem- 
ber 3. 1823:— “I have to state for 
your satisfaction, that the Truss 1 
had from you about two years ago 
has perfectly cured me; and al- 
though subject to the most labori- 
ous exercise, have for some time 
leit it off: much good resulted from 
wearing it at nights. I have further 
to add, the one my father had 
answers very welL and there is no 
doubt of his being cured." (Adver- 
tisement.]— TOWERS’S TONIC 
PILLS are an invaluable remedy in 
cases of bilious derangement, nau- 
sea. loss of appetite, head-ache, 
giddiness or dizziness, and for the 
other various symptoms which 
originate in a weakened state of the 
digestive organs. They do not 
contain a particle of mercury or 
. antimony, and their operation is 
usually so gentle, as scarcely to 
appear the effect of a medicine.

BEAR'S GREASE for the growth 
of hair.— Caution.— J. ATKINSON 
respectfully informs the public, 
that though his BEAR'S GREASE 
is sold by most respectable perfum- 
ers in London, there are still a 
number of little shops that sell an 
imitation, and some say it is nis: 
some of these imitations are only- 
lard. marrow, &c„ and are sold as 
low as Is. 

Gospel to cities 

Front the Archdeacon of Middle- 
sex 

Sir. The Rev John Vine (February 
22) has chosen to outline foe 
problem faced by him and his 
parochial church council in a letter 
to you. 

The facts are that St Cuthbert’s. 
PbuOeach Gardens, was inad- 
equately repaired after the last war 
and proper maintenance since 
then has been beyond the means 
of the congregation. Now a serious 
crisis has arisen over the roof! 

The report. Faith in the City, 
reminds us of questions too long 
left unasked about what ministry 
is appropriate in an area like Earls 
Court and whai resources should 
be made available to support it. 

It would be quite irresponsible 
to encourage the spending of 
public fends on one of four 
churches in the area before these 
questions have been asked and 
answered. 

Fr Vine is wrong to say that “foe 
Archdeacon of Middlesex insists 
that St Cuthbert’s assets should be 
sold up”. I have no authority to 
make such a statement, nor would 
it achieve anything. 

What I must do is encourage alt 
the churches in the area to 
consider together the require- 
ments for mission and ministry' in 
the light of the available resources, 
and to plan for action.lt is no 
longer acceptable to think only of 
the maintenance of church build- 
ings, even if they have some 
architectural merit 
No doubt we will all quote Faith 
in the City in support of what we 
want to do. The test will be if we 
can really as a Church make the 
change from maintenance to mis- 
sion. 

Yours faithfully.

highest price ever recorded at 
auction for a Castelli piece. 

The table top dates from 
around 1760 and is painted 
with Moorish and European

As a result of the scholarship 
examinations the following 



Charterhouse 

The following have been elected 


Cardinal Basil Hume yester- 
day repudiated "ill-conceived 
and insensitive" efforts by 
Christian missionaries in Brit- 
ain to convert Jews. But 
Christians were bound to pro- 
claim unceasingly that "Christ 
is the way, the truth, and the 
life." 

This was the cardinal's mea- 
sured answer to demands 
from the Jewish community 
that Christian leaders should 
condemn the activities of 
missionaries who are active 
among young Jews, particular- 
ly in some universities. He 
deplored attempts at "aggres- 
sive and systematic 
indoctrination", particularly 
among Jews who were young 
and vulnerable. 

Jewish community leaders 
have been trying to persuade 
Cardinal Hume, the Archbish- 
op of Canterbury, Dr Roben 
R untie, and other senior 
churchmen to issue a joint 
statement against Protestant 
missionaries engaged in these 
activities. 

In fact Cardinal Hume's 
church has not been involved, 
as Jewish leaders have recog- 
nized. It is understood, how- 
ever. that Cardinal Hume felt 
he could not deny the princi- 
ple of missionary work, while 
disapproving of some forms of 
iL 

He was speaking at the 
investiture, attended by the

St Gregory the Great. 

The knighthood, awarded 
by Pope John Paul II in 
recognition of Sir Sigmund's 
lifelong work for Christian 
Jewish relations, was a rare 
honour for a Jew, the cardinal 
explained 

Cardinal Hume said the 
Roman Catholic Church repu- 
diated all forms of 
antisemitism, and he person- 
ally regarded the Nazi Holo- 
caust- the Sboah - as the most 
shameful episode in human 
history. Christians had to 
acknowledge unconditionally 
the religious debt they owed to 
the Jews.

Science report 


Parasitic disease threatens oyster beds 


By Pearce Wright, Science Editor 


Commercial production of 
oysters in Britain is threat- 
ened by tbe appearance of a 
parasitic disease unknown in 
waters surrounding the United 
Kingdom. 

Tbe emergence of tbe organ- 
ism is particularly disappoint- 
ing for marine biologists who 
have seen a steady improve- 
ment over the past few years of 
i oyster beds, after the introduc- 
tion of new strains and innova- 
tions in the control of stocks. 

The new invader is classed 
as a haplosporidian with the 

name Bonamia ostea. 

— It has severely damaged 
shellfish beds over the past 
four years. The organism ap- 


pears to be the most virulent of 
bouts of Infection that since 
tbe 1970s have affected oyster 

colonies periodically in Eu- 
rope. 

Indications that a foreign 
strain of infection was spread- 
ing to waters in the Channel 
and the North Sea were first 
seen in France between 1979 
and 1982. Tbe severe destruc- 
tion occurred in some of the 
major production areas of the 
Dutch coast between 1980 and 
1984. 

Progress of the disease has 
been monitored by scientist of 
the Ministry of Agriculture, 
Fisheries and Food, which has 
applied strict controls on the 


import and movement of sus- 
pect stocks of oyster and then- 
spat. 

Nevertheless, the micro- 
scopic protozoon entered Brit- 
ish waters at least four years 
ago. Tbe first recorded inci- 
dent was in a creek on the 
Rive: Fal in Cornwall in 1982, 
from which it became estab- 
lished over a small area. The 
Fal incident was donbley seri- 
ous because tbe river is used a$ 
a source of young stocks for 
East Coast beds, as well as 
direct supply of edible shell- 
fish. 

By the time the infection 
became apparent, young oys- 
ter stocks had been trans- 






ously been known to secure 
prices in this range.. A 
Nymphenburg fisherman, 
more clumsily painted, sold 
roughly as predicted at £8.250

Research by ministry scien- 
tists shows that the parasite is 
not easily detectable until the 
molluscs are almost dead, and 
this gives the organism time to 
become established in tbe 
sediments. Infected stocks are 
usually destroyed, and the 
beds are left fallow for several 
season, because tbe spores 
take years to become inactive. 

A strategy being tried by the 
scientist is to cultivate an 
unusual species for British 
waters called Crassostria gi- 
gas , which tends to have 
higher yields. 





OBITUARY 


DR HUGH JOLLY * 


Influence on contemporary 
childcare 


Dr Hugh Jolly. MD. FRCP, 
who died yesterday at the age 
of 67, was a paediatrician who 
wielded influence over a gen- 
eration of modern parents 
through his books, notably the 
. Book of Child Core, and 
through broadcasting and 
journalism. . 

For several years in the 
1970s as The Times 
paediatrician his regular col- 
umn roved over every aspect 
of child care, often provoking 
lively exchanges from dissent- 
ers from his news. These 
articles were collected and 
published as a book. Common 
Sense about Babies and Chil- 
dren in 1973. 

Jolly, often referred to as 
“Britain's answer to Dr 
Spock”. always however dis- 
claimed that there were fixed 
rules about child care, prefer- 
ring to give scope to the rule of 
commoDsense in the home. 

He was Physician in Charge 
of the Paediatric Department 
at Glaring Cross Hospital, 
London, from 1965 to 1984, 
remaining a Consulting 
Paediatrician thereafter. 

Hugh R- Joltv was was bom 
on May 5. 1918, and educated 
at Marlborough and Sidney 
Sussex College, Cambridge, 
before completing his medical 
training at the London Hospi- 
tal. 

After house posts in London 
hospitals during the war he 
served as a Captain in the 
RAMC from 1944 to 1947, 
coming back to London for 









three years at the Hospital for 
Sick Children, Great Ormond 
Street. 

In 1951 he went to Plym- 
outh as a Consultant 
Paediatrician and immediate- 
ly instituted the remedy for 
one of the faults which had 
struck him in London hospi- 
tals - namely miserly visiting 
hours for the parents of sick 
children. Within two days of 
his arrival his unit at Plym- 
outh enjoyed completely unre- 
stricted visiting and in the ten 
years he was there he did 


much to restructure paediatric 
attitudes in South ■ Devon 
generally- 

He then spent some tune m . 
Africa where he was Professor 
of Paediatrics at the UniwtisH •’ . 
ly College of Ibadan; Nigeria, 
1961-62, and Visiting Profes- 
sor of Child Health. Ghana 
Medical School, 1965-67.. • . 

Jn 1965 he settled again in v 
London and began the king 
association with the Qtaring . 
Cross Hospital which was to 
prove so fruitful. Although an. 
acknowledged expert in 
paediatric endocrinology with 
a special interest in the study 
of children of indeterminate " 
sex. Jolly’s greatest conirfijo- 
tion to child health was . m ' 
teaching both students and the 
general public. 

His skill as a communicator . 
through his many books, , 
broadcasting and journalism ._ 
was legendary, and the Book of 
Child Care (1975) became an ; 
international best seller, being ^ 
sold in translation in countries ; 
as far away as Japan, and * 
running through a number of 
editions. 

He retained his interest in 
tropical paediatrics and was a - 
consultant at the Liverpool 
School of Tropical Medictae. 

Throughout h» life he. was 
supported by his wife. Geral- 
dine, also a distinguished ■ 
doctor. They' had two sons and >■ 
one daughter. - . ; ^

Ding Lmg, China's most 
celebrated woman novelist, 
and a veteran communist 
revolutionary and fighter for 
women’s rights in her country, 
died yesterday in Peking at the 
age of 81. 

She made her reputation as 
a writer of some of the best 
Chinese fiction in the 1920s 
and 1930s and her commit- 
ment to revolutionary princi- 
ples carried her to a Stalin 
Prize in 1952. 

But she fell dramatically 
from favour in 1957, and for 
the next twenty years little was 
heard of her until her rehabili- 
tation in 1979. 

Ding Ling was bom Cbiang 
Pin-chin in Hunan province 
on October 12, 1904, but was 
always known by her pseud-

What she wrote thereafter was, 
not of the quality of her earlier

notice of Mao Tse-tung and 
earned her official censure in 


Nevertheless she was given * 
official posts when the Com-

allowed to travel to the Soviet 
Union to receive the Stalin 
Prize which had been awarded 
to her for Sun shines over the- 
Sanggan Rher, a novel about . 
communist land reform in 
northern China. 

Soon, however, fresh 
charges of 'individualism and 
ami-party feeling' were lev-

was denounced as a countcr- 
r evolutions ry.In tbe following 
year she was expelled from the 
party and deprived of her 
rights as an author and citizen. 

Thereafter her name was 
seldom mentioned; she was 
imprisoned during the Cultur- 
al Revolution for five, years 
and afterwards sent to labour 
in tbe countryside. 

But in 1979 she was cleared ■ 
of all tbe char g es against her 
and at a speech at the national .

regret that an entire genera-

deprived of the opportunity to

THE TIMES WEDNESDAY MARCH 5 1986 


■j*ar 

A* 






Fisons preliminary results for 1985 show record pre-tax profits of 
£72.3 million, up 50% on 1984.This represents the fifth successive year of 
major achievement. During the period profits have grown from £3.8 million 
in 1980 to their current high. 

The growth in profits was accompanied by continued improvement 
in quality of earnings. Return on capital employed at 23.9% was up on 1984, 
whilst earnings per share rose from 18.8p to 243p. 

From a market capitalization of £41 million in 1981, Fisons is now 
valued at over £1 billion. Given the strength of the growth in Group profits, 
the Board is recommending a final dividend of 334p net per ordinary 
share, making 5.5p net for the full year: a 22% increase on 1984. 


PRETAX PROFITS 1981-1935 


Fisons Formula for Success. 

These excellent results reflect careful 
long-term planning and rigorous follow- 
through. At the beginning of the decade, 
Fisons management team implemented 
a corporate strategy which has restruc- 
tured and refocussed the Company. 

This strategy was based on the follow- 
ing criteria. 

L To operate only in inherently attrac- 
tive industries with a long-term 
growth and profit potential. 

2. To operate only in industries where 
Fisons would be a highly effective 
competitor. 

3. To establish a high quality and well 

. motivated management team to 

ensure efficient implementation . 

The success of our strategy is evident 
from the record results produced by all 
three of our Divisions, each of which has 
achieved an all-time high in both sales 
and profits. 

Pharmaceutical Division. 

The Pharmaceutical Division has 


maintained its position as the leading 
earner in the Group with sales of £220.8 
million (up from £198.5 million in 1984) 
and a record profit of £39 million, which 
represents a 25% increase. 

The Division’s performance in North 
America is particularly impressive; sales 
increasing by over 40%. 

Applications for the registration of 
nedocromil sodium were made in a 
number of European countries; whilst 
it is premature to make predictions of 
success until regulatory approvals are 
obtained, the clinical trials of this product 
look most encouraging. 

Scientific Equipment. 

The Scientific Equipment Division 
is now contributing more than ever to 
Group performance. Both sales at 
£358.2 million and profits at £19.2 
million are records. 

Over the past 5 years Fisons has 
been the fastest growing major supplier 
of scientific laboratory equipment in 
the world. 


Horticulture Division. 

Fisons horticultural activities have 
returned profits of £8.7 million in 1985, 
50% higher than in 1984, on a 7% 
increase in sales. 

This strong performance can be 
attributed to both the UK and the North 
American market, where our overall 
development continues to be impressive. 

Major International Group. 

Throughout the 1980’s the growth of 
each of our three divisions has been 
backed by capital investment and aug- 
mented by selective acquisitions around 
the world. 

Fisons is now established as a major 
international company, with over 80% of 
sales made overseas.

FINANCE AND 



i>atwest surprises with 
20 per cent profits rise 


National Westminster Ra«fr 
yesterday announced better- 
than expected results for 1985;. 
reflecting an improvement in 
profits in -the second half and a 
strong performance in domes- 
tic British banking operations. 

The ..bank also benefited 
from an adjustment in its 
provisions against bad debt 
which lowered its tax charge. 

NatWest reported pretax 
profits of £804 miffion com- 
pared with £671 million the 


previous year, an increase of 

20 per cent.-. ‘ 


20 per cent. - 

Mow of the profits came 
from British banking which 
improved by 30 per cent to 
£526 million. International 
banking operations contribut- 
ed £18.1 million, an increase of 
£10 million. The final divi- 
dend increased by 10-2 per 
cent to 28J2p. 

The results were well above 
stock market expectations and 
bank shares, which did not 
enjoy the price increase which 
usually takes place before the 
bank reporting season, raced 
ahead. NatWest shares rose 
30p from 709p before settling 
at 734p. The other dealing 
banks' shares rose between 


-I7p and 25p during the day. 

NatWest is the second bank 
to report good profits. Uoyds 
reported pretax profits of £561 
milhoa last week. Midland’s 
results are due today and 
Barclays on Thursday. 

Lord Boardman, the chair- 
man of NatWest, said he 
viewed with horror the possi- 
bility of a tax on bank profits 
in the Budget, but that if a tax 
was imposed it should cover 
other financial services insti- 
tutions and not just banks. 

Commenting on the results. 
Mr Philip Wilkinson, group 
chief executive, said they gave 
a strong platform for progress. 
He added that the outlook for 
1986 was good, with the 
prospect oflower interest rates 
and inflation and the benefi- 
cial effect of lower oil prices 

Provisions for bad debt fell 
slightly compared with the 
year before, from £351 million 
to £338 million but the provi- 
sions include an unusual £100 
minion transfer from general 
to specific provisions. The 
transfer represents provisions 
on sovereign risk, but the bank 
emphasized that it did not 
represent a more pessimistic 





Lord Boardman: “ bonified 
at possibility of profits tax 

view of the likelihood ofloans 
being repaid. 

Mr Charles Green, the gen- 
eral manager of finance con- 
trol, said that sovereign risk 
provisions qualify for tax 
relief if they are treated as 
specific. 

Tax credits for the provi- 
sioning transfer were taken 


immediately and helped to 
reduce NatWest’s tax charge 


reduce NatWest’s tax charge 
by £23 million to £354 mil- 
lion. 

Mr Green added that the 
bank had no exposure to 


Fisons, the pharmaceutical, 
horticulture and scientific 
equipment company, lifted 
pretax profits from £48.3 mil- 
lion to £72.3 million in 1985. 
Turnover was up from £553 
million to £647 million and 
the final dividend is raised 
from 2.7p to 3.3p.

The wave of takeover bids 
in the City continued yester- 
day when Norton Opax 
launched an ambitious £110 
million offer for its bigger 
scurity printing rival, 
McCorquodale. 

The bid drew a swift rejec- 
tion from McCorquodale 
which is more than twice as 
large as Norton Opax in terms 
of stock market value.. 

There was intense specula- 
tion that there would be a 
counter-bid from J Bibby.the 
South African-controlled agri- 
cultural . produce group. 
McCorquodale shares leapt 
20p to 230p before settling at 
220p — still 8p dear of the 
value of Norton’s bid. . • • 

McCorquodale’s advisers 
will be seeking a Stock Ex- 
change inquiry into dealings 
in the company’s shares be- 
fore yesteiday's announce- 
ment. They have risen 
substantially since The Times 
first reported the possibility of ; 
a hostile hid from Norton 
Opax last week. 

Mr Richard Hanwell, 
Norton's chief executive, said 
that rationalization in the 
printing industry was so rapid 
at present that the company 
could not miss the opportuni- 
ty of ^airing substantial ac- 
quisitions. 

. He said there was enormous 
potential for improving 
McCorquodale’s profit mar- 
gins, claiming that his own 
company 5 * margins in cheque 
printing were 4 per cent higher 
than McCoiqpodale’s. In lot- 
tery ticket printing, margins 
r werel4percenibigher,andin 
cartons, Norton achieved 18 
per cent more profit on sales 
than McCorquodale. 

Mr ' Hanwell thought it : 
‘‘unlikeiy’’ that the takeover , 
proposal would be referred to 
the Monopolies and Mergers 
Commission despite the feet 
that , the combined group 
woukf have more than 40 per 
cent of the British cheque j 
priming market. 

Norton, which has built up 
a 2.1 per cent stake m 
McCorquodale, is offering 24 
of its shares and 7 new Norton 
Opax redeemable convertible 
preference shares for every 20 
McCorquodale shares. Samu- 
el- Montagu, the merchant 
bank, has underwritten a cash 
alternative offer worth 191p 
for each McCorquodale share. 

. Mr John Wood, 
McCorquodale’s chief execu- 
tive, condemned the offer as 
“cheeky and totally 
inadequate 11 *. Mr Hanwell 
poured scorn. _ on 
McCorquodale’s recent profit

to the dollar yesterday, on 
further evidence of an econom- 
ic slowdown in the United 
States and an unexpected rise 
last month in Britain’s gold 
and foreign currency reserves. 

The announcement of a 0.6 
per cent drop in the American 
index of leading indicators in 
Janmy, and afaU in yields in 
the US bond market to their 
lowest for more than eight 


underlying increase of $112 
milti nn after adjustment for 
public sector borrowing and 
repayments. 

Britain’s reserves, while fur- 
ther bolstering the pound, 
were less important yesterday 
than foe US leading indica- 
tors, which point to a sharp dip 
in the American economy. 

The 0.6 per cent drop in die 
index of leading indicators last 


years, produced heavy selling month compared with a 1.5 per 


of the dollar yesterday. 

Against the marie, the dollar 
fell below the key DM2.20 
level and the yen/dollar rate 
dropped below 179. 

The pound was a major 
beneficiary of die dollar's 
weakness, mftially rising near- 
ly 2 cents to $1.46 and later 
gaming farther ground on 
I publication of figures for 
Britain’s gold and foreign 
currency reserves to dose at 
$1.4615. The pound ended at 
3-2233 against the marie. 

The reserves figures, re- 
leased by foe Treasury, 
shewed an underlying rise in 
reserves of $112 million (£77 
million) last month, following 
an increase of $132 million in 
Janaary. Both advances con- 
founded market expectations. 

However, unlike in January, 
when die reserves were dis- 
torted by a huge European 
Economic Community budget 
abatement, there were no spe- 
cial factors in the February 

figures, officials said. 

The reserves rose by an 
a ctua l $250 million from 
$15-56 billion at foe end of 


cent rise in December. The fall 
was the biggest since last 
April and followed six consec- 
utive monthly increases. 

The main factor was a 
decline m contracts and orders 
for plant and equipment last 
month. Net business forma- 
tion, money supply and die 
average work week also de- 
clined. In contrast, factory 
orders for consumer goods, 
weekly unemployment benefit, 
building permits, stock prices 
and raw material prices all 
rose. 

The fall in the index rein- 
forced foe view of foreign 
exchange dealers that a reduc- 
tion in foe Federal Reserve 
Board's discount rate Is imrai- ! 
neat because of the weakness 
of the economy and the con- 
tinuing fall in US money 1 
market rates and bond yields. 

There are general expects- , 
dons of a art in West ! 
Germany's official interest 
rates at foe conndl meeting of 
its central bank tomorrow. 
This has hindered the rise of 
the mark against both the | 
dollar and sterling.

second half . _

By Cliff Feltham 

Wolseley-Hughes, the cen- 
tral heating and plumbing 
equipment group, has agreed 
after months of talks to pay 
£109 million for Grovewood 
Securities, the industrial con- 
glomerate arm of BAT. 

It is Wolseley-Hughes's big- 
gest deal, and will dramatical- 
ly increase the size of its 
business. The Grovewood op- 
eration includes a chain of 
builders' merchants, a plastics 
manufacturer, suppliers of 
electrical components and 
spare parts for tractors, a 
technical consultancy and 
computer software house. 

But Wolseley-Hughes is not 
buying one of Grovewood’s 
best- known assets — the 
Brands Hatch racing circuit 
BAT, which acquired 
Grovewood as part of its £970 
million takever of Eagle Star 
in 1983, says it is still consider- 
ing offers for this. 

The health care side and 
certain property interests in 
Grovewood are also being 
hived off elsewhere for around 
£24 million. 

Wolseley-Hughes is financ- 
ing the acquisition with a one- 
for-three rights issue at 425p a ! 
share. In the stock market the ! 
shares, after falling before the 
announcement closed 12p I 
ahead at 518p. I 

At the same time Wolseley- 
Hughes announced half year 
profits up by 27 per cent to 
almost £17 million, and de- 
clared a dividend of 3.5p. 

The Grovewood business it 
is buying turned in trading 
profits last year of £18.5 mil- 1 
lion on turnover of over £195 <■ 
million. The Ray and Harris 
chain of builders merchants 
will give Wolseley-Hughes 
about 225 outlets in Britain. 


So far shareholders and interested 
bystanders have been permitted to 
see only the surface manoeuvres of 
Argyll in a masterful campaign 
against Guinness for control of 
Distillers. It is a campaign which 
Argyll has to win: the costs to which it 
is already committed — in the region 
of half a year’s profits — would turn 
defeat into a rout. But Argyll, with a 
cash offer of 600p against Guinness’s 
cash offer of 630.3p, cannot win: 
unless Sir Gordon Borne, the Direc- 
tor General of Fair Trading, succeeds 
a second lime in having the Guinness 
bid referred to the Monopolies and 
Mergers Commission. 

To that end, Argyll will again lean 
heavily on the insights, personal 
relationships and persuasive powers 
of Alex Fletcher, until recently a 
junior minister at the Department of 
Trade and Industry and now an 
adviser to James Gulliver, at a fee, it 
is rumoured, too high for Tiny 
Rowland for whom any weapon 
against the DTI is normally beyond 
price. 

The judgement in the case brought 
by Argyll against the Government, 
and in particular against Sir Godfray 
Le Quesne, chairman of the Monopo- 
lies Commission, claiming that 
Guinness’s first bid for Distillers 
should not have been released by the 
Commission, may have some bear- 
ing. So, perhaps, might the publicity 
surrounding the rival bids, which at 
this stage is much more favourable to 
the Argyll cause and the benign 
Borne than to Guinness, which is 


also suffering from the battering 
taken by Morgan Grenfell, 
Guinness's merchant bankers. 

Morgan through its successes and 
inventiveness has become too big a 
target for anyone to miss. Currently it 
is being portrayed as tilting at the 
Bank of England because it has 
arranged with a consortium of banks 
lo lake over the £1 1 1 million wonb of 
Distillers shares it had acquired on 
Guinness's behalf, precisely to allay 
the Bank's qualms about Morgans 
having such a wiehgt on its own 
balance sheet Samuel Montagu, 
merchant bankers acting for Argyll 
in simialr fashion are laughing all the 
way to the bank — the Midland Bank 
which happens to own Montagu and 
is a larger bank than Morgan Gren- 
fell. 

Argyll cannot afford to rely solely 
on the recommendation of the Office 
of Fair Trading. Lightning may not 
strike twice. The alternative is a 
higher offer, which is both a high risk 
strategy for Argyll and a challenge to 


the financing ingenuity of Citicorp 
and First Boston. But if a higher offer 
did emerge, so too would questions 
about stories now circulating about 
the unspoken deals the bold James 
Gulliver may have adumbrated with 
others interested in the future of 
bistillers if and when it fell to 
Argyll. 

One name, inevitably, is 
Seagram. But the really fascinating 
one is Sir James Goldsmith. The two 
Jimmies in harness could poerfiilly 
assist each others ambitions 


Dilemma for Chancellor 


By mid-session yesterday in New 
York, the long bond was 50 cents 
away from making history. Quoted at 
1 13.75, the stock only needed to hit a 
fraction below 1 14 'A before the yield 
big figure changed yet again, this time 
from 8 to 7. 


Never in bond market trading, 
claim the pundits, have yields fallen 
so far and so fast. Just one month ago. 


the yield on the long bond was 
comfortably over 9 per cent and 


comfortably over 9 per cent and 
heading nowhere. It just goes to 
show, opine analysts, that the Saudis 
really do carry huge clout within 
Western economies. Ten years ago, 
they devastated inflation expecta- 
tions by raising oil prices; now they 
are having the reverse effect by 
cutting Western energy costs. 


The Fed, playing a misire hand 
along with other central banks, 
received some unexpected help in the 
cause of moderating rate cut hopes 
yesterday from the US Commerce 
Secretary, Malcolm Baldridge. Bonds 
in New York derived a huge boost 
from publication of the January 
leading indicators, which showed a 
decline of 0.6 per cent. This immedi- 
ately fuelled hopes that the US 
economy was so weak that the Fed 
would find itself obliged to cut the 
discount rate, as a stimulant 
Enter the obliging Baldridge. He 


pointed out that the leading in- 
dicators index had risen unchecked 
for the past six months; that hiccups 
in indices occurred quite frequently; 
that the December index had been 
revised upwards; and that the US 
would show healthy near-term 
growth. To no avail. 

For gilts traders, yesterday was 
party time until sterling sagged, as 
usual, in mid-afternoon. 

It is hard, in the short term, to see 
bow die sense of fiesta can be broken, 
provided sterling holds up. Trading 
today will be dominated by hopes 
that West Germany’s central bank 
will cut its Lombard rate tomorrow. 
On a longer time-scale, the market 
has apparently convinced itself that 
entry to the safe haven of EMS lies 
only a matter of weeks away. But 
sterling remains the unknown factor. 

It will ill behove the Chancellor to 
frustrate market hopes on Budget 
Day by adopting a Hamlet-like stance 
towards the question of EMS entry. 
But, equally, spare a thought for his 
dilemma. Opec meets in Geneva just 
before the Budget — on March 18 — 
and the Chancellor stands a fair 
chance of being well and truly 
“Yamanied”. Some claim the true 
Budget will be contained in the 
erratum clip, available after the 
Sheikh, as well as the Chancellor, has 
spoken.

Record year for leasing 

By Derek HamsJEndnstrial Editor 


Leasing of industrial and 
commercial, assets like plank 
equipment, buildings, vehi- 
cles and aircraft increased by 
43 per cent last year to- a 
record £5,757 milbon as com- 
panies sought to beat taxation 
changes. Overall investment 
last year grew by 13 percent. 

A new assessment of pcrftff-. 

mance in 1985 compared with 
that of 1984 by foe 73 mem- 
hers of the Equipment Leasing 
Association suggested that ac- 
celeration of investment by 
companies in advance! of the

factor behind the expansion,

ness, and by a greater aware-

Mexico confirmed in a 
statement on Monday that it 
had insisted on concessions 
from its forefan creditors after 
a week of private discussions 
with senior government and 
banking officials in Washing- 
ton. 

Specifically, it wants a sub- 
stantial redaction in interest 
rates on debt payments of 
more than $10 bfllion doe this 
year. 

Long seen by hankers as tire 

model debtor of Latin Amen*-

acknowledged that there will 
be a real problem unless 
Mexico’s fiMnrial health is

a hard line because of the 
crash in international oil 
pikes. As the world's fourth 
lamst oil producer, if expects 
to lose $6 billion this year, 
»cy»ming paces remain at 
their present rate.

international banks in foe 
co ming weeks — Mexico owes 
British banks an estimated 
$13 billion - and their bar- 
gaining position is expected to 
be aggressive following guide- 
lines set by President Miguel 
de la Madrid 

Stopping short of announc- 
ing foe default many had. 
expected, foe President de- 
clared it was unjust and impos- 
sible for Mexico to pay alone 
the price of the hanks’ lending 
spree of recent years. 

“Our creditors must row 
make sacrifices and efforts 
equivalent, at least, to those of 
the Mexican people,” he said. 

Monday's government 
statement said Mexico’s aim 
was to find a lasting solution to 
foe problem of the Mexican 
debt. 


Financial observers say 
Mexico has thrown the gaunt- 
let before the big banks, 
implicitly telling them a debt 
default or a unilateral limita- 
tion on payments in foe man- 
ner of Pen is on the cards if 
they do not significantly soften 
their repayment terms. 

Bankers admit they are 
caught in an extremely diffi- 
cult position. 

If they ignore Mexico’s 
pleas, which hare become 
increasingly urgent as political 
dissatisfaction at home has 
grown, they know a default 
would have disastrous conse- 
quences for the world finanefal 
system. 

But if foe banks do allow 
Mexico preferential payment 
terms they fear that Latin 
America’s "other big debtors 
win insist on similar treat- 
ment, putting them in foe 
Bsaccnstpmed position of 
making very large 
“sacrifices”, severely curtail- 
ing their operations in their 
own countries.

THE TIMES WEDNESDAY MARCH 5 1986 


( TEMPUS~J 


Intal shot ensures Fisons runs 


• Fisons is like a racehorse 
owner who has prepared his 
thoroughbred for a big race 

vLu has - not bounced 
whether .« will run. Punters 
assume it will enter the 
takeover fray but the compa- 
ny is not saying either way.. 

It easily passed the fitness 
test yesterday by announcing 
a 50 per cent increase in. 
pretax profits for 1985 to 
£72.3 million, or £5 million . 
better than most forecasts. It 
has a strong share price 1 and 
cash in the bank. The combi- 
nation suggests that it cannot 
be long before Fisons makes a 
bid. 

Fisons denied yesterday 
that there had been any talks 
with Beecham, which, it has 
been suggested, might make a 
reverse takeover, but other 
deals are- still possible. 

The company points out 
that the existing businesses 
are growing quickly, helped 
by a series of small acquisi- 
tions: Last year profits in the 
pharmaceutical division rose 
by 25 per cent to £39 million 
before interest, aided by a 
good rise in sales of Intal, the 
asthma product, in America. 
With related drugs, Intal 
accounts for roughly two- 
thirds of the pharmaceuticals 
business. 

The. American -launch of. 
the aerosol version will sus- 
tain growth this year, and 
after that much depends on 
Tilade, another asthma prod- 
uct which has yet to be 
registered, although approval 
in at least one European 
market is expected this year.' 
Once launched, this product 
could be important for 
Fisons. although it is too 
early to say whether it will be 
as important as Zantac has 
been- lor Glaxo. Meanwhile, 
the launch of Dopacard, a 
heart drug, has been put back 
until next year. 

Scientific equipment and 
horticulture were also strong 
performers. And these divi- 
sions offer plenty of scope for 


expansion. Whereas there are 
few pharmaceutical compa- 
res available, to purchase, 
there are. many scientific 
equipment companies from 
which to choose: This means 
that Fisons can in theory 
make acquisitions more eas- 
ily than, say Glaxo, which has 
restricted itself to pharma- 
ceuticals. • 

At the year end Fisons had-' 
£40 million net cash, even 
after spending £24 million on 
tile acquisitions. And it ad- 
huts that the bank is not the 
best place for this money. In 
.time a cash pile could hinder 
earnings growth. 

Although it can p lainl y 
afford' a large purchase, 
Fisons may choose to contin- 
ue expanding by a series of 
small purchases. What is 
clear is that Fisons is in no 
mood to be taken' over. And, 
whh its shares trading on 19 
times prospective earnings, 
which represents only a small 
discount to Glaxo, there are 
few companies able to.bkL 
Even so. the shares are not 
expensive. 

Hawley Group 

The rehabilitation of Mr 
Michael Ashcroft, chairman 
of Hawley Group, is virtually 
complete, to judge by the 
share price. Last July it sank 
below 70p but yesterday it 
touched J13p at one point, 
which means that it has 
recovered all the ground lost 
last year. 

The comeback reflects the 
company's declared strategy 
of tidying up the empire. 
Investors had become anx- 
ious that the number of 
stakes held in quoted compa- 
nies was de trading attention 
from the main business. Eigh- 
teen months ago there were 
five quoted subsidiaries but 
now there is none. 

As a result the company 
claims to have a dean profile. 
Yesterday it produced figures 


for 1985 which went some 
way to confirming the new 
shape- Profits were up from 
an adjusted £28.5 million to 
£33 million before tax and 
earnings per share were 30 
per cent higher, at I2.9p. 

The only problem for 
Hawley is that almost a third 
of the profits come from 
associates, of which by defini- 
tion it does not have full 
control. However, the main 
associate is Cope ' Allman, 
where Mr Ashcroft is chair- 
man, so he can claim to be 
hig hly influential. Last No- 
vember he implied that he 
wanted to sell the 43 per cent 
stake in Cope, now worth £50 
million, but this idea seems 
to have been put. on the back- 
burner. \ 

The requirement for cash 
has become less urgent, as 
Hawley recently raised S8Q 
million (£57 minion) by issu- 
ing convertible . preference 
shares. 

Consequently its net bank 
borrowings now stand at just 
£2S million, against 
shareholders’ fends of £100 
million. Hat makes Hawley 
fairly liquid, so it cannot be 
long before there is renewed 
corporate activity. On Mr 
Ashcroft's timescale, long is 
any time after this week. 

America, which accounted 
for 60 per cent of last year’s 
profits, is the favoured area 
for expansion. Hawley is 
keen to build on its network 
of cleaning and maintenance 
services there. Last year the 
division increased its contri- 
bution by 74 percent to £10.4 
million before, interest and 
more growth is in store. 

Even after the rehabilita- 
tion, the shares are trading on 
less than 9 times earnings, 
which leaves plenty of scope 
for appreciation. 

Unilever 

It is often the case that 
mature reflection will modify 
gut reaction. The stock 


market’s initial response to 
Unilever's 1985 results was to 
mark the shares up sharply to 
£15. In this case, the gut 
response will probably prove 
to be right 

The market was pleasantly 
surprised with pretax profits 
of £954 million, a 3 per cent 
increase on last year, 
achieved despite adverse ex- 
change rate movements. Ad- 
mittedly, most of the 
improvement was attribut- 
able to the first foil-year's 
contribution from Brooke 
Bond, and this inevitably 
raises the question whether 
we can expect future profits 
growth without further acqui- 
sitions. 

But the rationalization and 
investment programme of 
the last few years suggests 
that there will be solid profit 
growth next year. Unilever 
has cast off the majority of its 
fringe businesses, many of 
which were unprofitable, ft 
has also been investing heavi- 
ly in its core activities with 
the emphasis on geographical 
diversification, especially in 
the US where the once- 
moribund Lever Bros, is 
rising phoenix-tike from the 
ashes of neglect. 

Unilever will continue to 
make acquisitions as pan of 
its general business strategy — 
to gain a foothold in new 
areas, especially the Pacific 
Basin, and to broaden its 
product base in markets 
where h is weak, such as 
Personal Products in the US. 
Whether it will make a jumbo 
acquisition on the sole, of 
Beecham is another matter. 

With year-end cash of near- 
ly £500 milli on and the 
ability to borrow £1 billion 
more, the company can easily 
afford a major purchase. 
Since losing Richaidson- 
Vicks to Procter & Gamble, 
last year there has been no' 
obvious target for takeover 
and the group may bold off 
until some of the froth has 
gone out of the market

STOCK MARKET REPORT 


ICI leads new rise as 
speculators return 


The stock market bounded 
back strongly after Monday’s 
falls. An initially dull start was 
shrugged aside as speculative 
fever relumed. 

The main lead, however, 
came from the gills, which 
woe considerably stronger on 
the back of heavy demand in 
US credit markets. They 
closed with healthy gains to 2 
1/2 points, also helped by the 
strength of the pound. 

Leading equities ended with 
rises to double figures, led by 
I CL up 33p at 957p. after 
comment and US support 
National Westminster Bank 
also did well, ending 25p to 
the good at 734p after better- 
than-expecled figues. This 
gave a boost to the entire 
banking sector. Midland, 
which reports tomorrow, fin- 
ishing with an 8p gain at 487p. 

Insurances also improved, 
thovgh brokers were in on the 
dull side. Commercial Union, 


2p better at 277p, reports 
figures tomorrow. C £ Heath 
gave up 7p to 653p, however, 
also in the financial arena. 
Provident Financial jumped 
39p to 399p after results and 
scrip proposals. 

Elsewhere. Beecham added 
5p at 355p after comment and 
p&O scored an 18p rise at 
506p thanks to good options 
business. 

On the bid front Norton 
Opax down 2pat 143p, made 
an offer for McCorqnodale, 
which gained 12p to 223p. 
CoIoroU returned from sus- 
pension to close down 2p at 
186p, with an offer for Staf- 
fordshire Potteries* also back 
from suspension. Stafford- 
shire Potteries finshed at

BOXING 


Holmes needs to prove 
himself against Spinks 


.'■■ v 


■ •- .'vvJfS?') 






New York (Reuter) - Hu- 
mility was never Larry 
Holmes' strong suit during his 
seven and a half year reign as 
world heavyweight boxing 
champion. 

But losing can be a hum- 
bling experience and Holmes 
showed signs yesterday that 
the only defeat of his profes- 
sional career — against Mi- 


chael Spinks last September — 
had affected him. 


had affected him. 

At his first news conference 
since losing the International 
Boxing Federation title to 
Spinks in a unanimous but 
close 15-round decision. 
Holmes demonstrated none of 
the boastfulness which charac- 
terized his public behaviour in 
the past, "1 want to thank 
Michael Spinks for giving me 
the opportunity to redeem 
myself." Holmes said. 

The elaborate news confer- 
ence was held at the fashion- 
able Waldorf-Astoria hotel to 
publicize a Heavyweight 
World Series designed to es- 


tablish one champion between 
the three world boxing organi- 
zations. 

Earlier. Holmes, aged 36. 
told reporters that he was 
seeking a rematch with 
Spinks, who thwarted his bid 
to tie Rocky Marciano's 
record of 49 straight victories, 
because of pride rather than 
money. 

“I can’t say that my pride 
wasn't hurt when I lost to 
Michael Spinks." Holmes 
said. “I still think l won the 
fight, but they gave it to 
Michael and alt he did was run 
away. Then after 1 lost a lot of 
people said (hat I was old and 
could not fight any more. Bui I 
am going to prove them wrong 
and reverse my only defeat" 

Holmes said he was embar- 
rassed by comments critical of 
Marciano which he made after 


the Spinks fight. 

“We all make mistakes, 
particularly in the heat ot 
battle.” he" said. “And I made 
a mistake and then made my 


apologies to the Marciano 
family. Now. after the fight 
with Michael Spinks. I hope 
there is no animosity between 
me and Michael or anyone 
else." 

Some boxing observers be- 
lieve Holmes' main reason for 
seeking a rematch is to en- 
hance his image, not only as a 
fighter who feels he never got 
his proper due. but as a person 
whose angry words following 
his only defeat antagonized 
most boxing fans. 

Holmes, who recently un- 
derwent surgery, looked fit 
and said he weighed 225 
pounds, which is close to his 
fighting weight in recent years. 
“For a while I wasn't sure if I 
wanted to fight again.” he 
said. “Bui then my three year- 
old son. Larry Jr. said. 'Dad- 
dy. why don't you go knock 
his head off.’ My wife has been 
after me to quit fighting for 
years, but once I made up my 
mind. I know she is going to 
support me."

Boris Becker. Jimmy Con-

the past five years the Stella

The Iasi three days of ihe

and u is more than likely that, 
fur ihe lirsi time, gale receipts 
alone (even when VAT is dc- 
dueied) will euved ihe total 
prize fund of £10*1.571. which 
includes prize money for ihe 
qualifying competition as well

Oxford fail to break 


the Cambridge spell 


By Sydney Friskin 


Oxford 1 

Cambridge 3 


Oxford again failed to break 
the winning sequence of Cam- 
bridge. who beat them for the 
fifth successive year in their 
annual match yesterday at 
Coldham's Common. Cam- 
bridge. Last year. Cambridge 
won 2-0. 

For the first lime in the 
history of this event, the match 
was played on artificial turf, bad 
weather having caused the 
postponement of the game 
scheduled for Lords on Feb- 
ruary 25. 

Cambridge were without their 
captain, Paul Cooies. who re- 
ceived a facial injury last week 
during a training match. His 
place at centre half was taken by 
Partington and Miles was 
brought in at left half. 

The seeds of victory were 
sown in the first minute. Pughe 
broke away on the right and put 
the ball on the inside to Lewis, 
who was obstructed. Jackson 
converting the penalty stroke. 

Each side then forced a shore 
comer, but Cambridge lost 
Lewis who was forced to leave 
the field after a clash with Blake 
left him with a cut over his left 
eye. He was replaced by 
Mackenzie. 

Cambridge increased their 

ImiI in minute ihmupb 


half time, however. Oxford were 
denied a golden opportunity 
when Wilson saved at close 
range from Vivian. 

Cambridge put more vigour 
into their attacks in the second 
half and after 1 1 minutes scored 
their third. Ghauri ran through 
on the left and put a centre deep 
into the circle where Blake 
delayed with his clearance and 
Jackon nipped in to score. 


A minute later Oxford re- 
duced the arrears from a short 
comer. The bail was cleverly hit 
across to Blake who drove it 
firmly home. 


The Barbarians too have been 
subject to unavailability and 
have had to make seven changes 
to their original side without any 
loss in appeal. Hastings. 
Scotland's foil back, and 
Delaney. Wales’s replacement 
prop, are new Barbarians while 
Orr. Ireland's loose-head prop, 
who has been capped 49 times, 
comes in for the injured Sole. In 
the centre Palmer (Bath) re- 
places Simms as be did for 
England on Saturday but late 
withdrawals have brought in 
Roberts, the Cardiff flanker. 
Redman (Bath) and Anderson 
(Dungannon) in the second row. 

Simms retains some hope that 
his damaged hamstring might 
heal in time to allow him to play 
for England against France on 


Saturday week but his optim ism 
mav not be shared by the 
selectors when the team is 
announced. Chilcott. the prop 
who hurl his shoulder during 
Saturday's international, is fit ro 
play foir Bath in their John 
Player Special Cup quarter-final 
with London Welsh on Sat- 
urday. 

It is difficult to imagine the 
Scottish selectors making any 
changes in the team, to be 
announced today, to play Ire- 
land on Saturday week. Derek 
Grant, their coach, watched 
Ireland lose to England on 
Saturday and the following day 
his colleagues saw Scotland beat 
France 12-10 in the B inter- 
national at Ville Franche-Sur- 
Saone. 

Turn bulk the Hawick flanker, 
had an outstanding game for 
Scotland B who had Ptarmigan 
(Melrose) to thank for four 
penalties which beat tries (one 
convened) by Bcrot and 
Cecillon. But so long as they are 
sure that Milne, the Harlequins 
prop, has recovered from an 
ankle injury. Scotland will 


place in yet another UAU finaL 
They have already beaten 
Birmingham in the qualifying 
competition and defeated their 
old rivals from Durham in the 
quarter-final round. They have 
been led with rare enthusiasm 
by Robinson, their blond 
flanker from Bath, and local 
officials have been mystified 
that be has been overlooked in 
the various representative stu- 
dent sides this term.

However, the de ris io n ef the 
Giro Bank League committee 
means that they wffl forfeit their 
10 league points, and neither 
they oor their opponents will 
receive points ia their remaining 
games. For Fleetwood it also 
means that they wiQ finish the 
season with no pools, and will 
automatically be relegated to the 
second division. 


Fleetwood’s offence was to 
field in one of their fixtures 
Mick Chester, n forma' Black- 
pool Borough Rugby League 
player and a former captain of 
Fleetwood. His connec ti ons with 
Rugby League make him an 
ineligible player, and die rules of

such a player must result in the 
expunging of a dab's record for

The Rugby Football Union 
have given permission for the 
John Player Special Cup semi- 
finals to be played up to and 
including April 5. The original 
date was March 22 but not all 
the quarter-finals will have been 
resolved by then (David Hands 
writes). 

Three of the remaining fourth 
round ties — Northampton v 
London Scottish. Wakefield v 
Nottingham and Saracens v 
Gloucester — will be played this 
Saturday as will the quarter- 
final between London Welsh 
and Bath, the holders. 
Broughton Park play Leicester 
on Sunday in the fourth round 
but Blackheath are permitted to 
play their fourth round tie with 
Wasps on March 22, The win- 
ners will play either Wakefield 
or Nottingham on March 31 
with the semi-final to be played 
at the end of that week. 


The matter was drawn to 
the attention of the Rugby 
Football Union, who referred it 
to the Lancashire Rugby Union, 
who interviewed Fleetwood of- 
ficials and then passed on the 
final decision to the Giro Bank 
League. 


Mr Foslds said “We shall 
appeal against the decision. 
Everyone at the dob is totally 
devastated, and this has rained 
12 months of hard work making 
Fleetwood a top dab. In some 
respects it is a disaster, because, 
for instance, a dub as far away 
as Workington might not want 
to travel all the way to Fleet- 
wood, incurring all the costs, for 
a match which no longer has any 
meaning. 

However, we shall 
continue to field a folly repre- 
sentative side and will go all out 
to maintain oar unbeaten record. 
We intend to fulfil] all om- 
fixjnres." 


After the allegations over drug-taking, the race is on to find acceptable alternatives 


Restoring the national image with a pill a day 


Sport in Australia 


By SUE MOTT 


The archetypal Aussie has 
taken a bit of a battering 
recently. In Ibis land of a billion 
beer cans, where Rodney Marsh, 
the former Test wicketkeeper, 
was Lauded to the skies (and was 
probably legless in the clouds) 
for consuming 45 cans of the 
brew on a long-haul flight to 
London, a strange deviation 
from the norm has come to light. 
Australian sport has a drag 
problem. 


Not of the cocaine kind that 
seems to beset almost every walk 
of life and baseball team in the 
United States. Nor is marijuana 
the culprit, despite the fact that 
this country rivals California 
with its love for the bid back 
position. The States still holds 


the edge nn that score too with 
Madison Square Garden smelt- 
ing and smaJung like a bush fire 
on ice hockey nights. 

No, the particular problem 
exposed by Dr Tony Millar, the 
former doctor to the Australian 
Commonwealth Games team, is 
anabolic steroids. In an issue of 
the medical journal. Current 
Therapeutics, be revealed the 
widespread use of steroids 
among athletes and advocated 
proper medical supervision for 
the users. He added, with crash- 
ing realism, that it was not the 
nxe of steroids that banned 
competitors from sport, it was 
getting caught. 

This was loo much for the 
authorities, who launched a 
huge counter propaganda cam- 
paign insisting that no athlete to 
their knowledge used drags and 
(hat the controversial Dr Millar 
was exercising imagination as 
well as bis right of free speech. 
They also put the “former' in his 
team doctor status at a meeting 


last week when he was un- 
ceremoniously sacked for bis 
news. After the meeting, a 
distinctly unrepentant Dr Millar 
said: “1 have brought this into 
the public view ami isn't it a 
marvellous thing for the athletes 
of Australia?" 


ties relented in time for her to 
win a bronze medal at the Los 
Angeles Olympics three years 
later. 


These goings-on pm a huge 
dent in the self-esteem of sport- 
ing A assies who think of their 
heroes' bulk and mnsde as being 
a natural inheritance. The 


circumference of a prop 
forward's neck lends the crack of 
heads on the field a smack of 
satisfaction in the stands. Now 
the whole struc t u re is tottering. 


In the long and enviable 
history of Australian sport only 
one athlete. Gael Martin, a shot 
putter, has ever been suspended 
for the use of steroids. She was 
banned for life in 1981 after the 
Pacific Conference Games in 
New Zealand. But she protested 
her innocence and the aotbori- 


However, at the Australian 
Institute of Sport, the federally 
funded centre for promising 
athletes and nncom promising 
standards, a massive research 
project is onder way to discover 
alternatives to drag use. “1 say. 
unequivocally, that the taking of 
drags is unhealthy and the 
development of alternative is the 
solution. Dr John Cheflen, the 
director of the Institute, said. 
“We cannot condone steroids. 
We most antiquate them." 

So far the wonders of science 
have come up with an alternative 
to corn flakes. A new breakfast 
cereaL Sustain, marketed by the 
Institute, is carving a swift niche 
for itself in the healthily enlight- 
ened public taste. No side 
effects, such as acne, sterility, 
liver cancer or moustaches, have 
yet been recorded, but nor have 


javelins been thrown oat of sight 
as a result. 

Back to r be drawing board. 
The Institute is now experiment- 
ing with amino acids and natural 
means of stimulating the pitu- 
itary gland. Meanwhile, indirid- 
oat athletes are recoursing to 
ingenuity as well as training to 
improve ou personal bests. One 
female athlete takes the pRl only 
during the competitive season 
since the boost of progest ero ne 
seems to increase her strength 
and endurance. 


And it is all thanks to one 
antioxidant pm a day. the new 
record bolder claims. This little 
miracle worker that he derrel- 


But, into this sad and cynical 
state of affairs, one ray of the 
ridiculous shines. A Sydney 
naturopath. 47-year-old J on 
Edmondson, has just crossed the 
threshold of pain and stepped 
straight into the Guinness Book 
of Records for completing 1,273 
push-ups. 983 double back 
arches and 201 sit-ups in 65 
minutes and 45 seconds. This 
particular combination is, it 
transpires, a world record. 


oped, known to its creator, as ' 
Enajoa, contains massive doses 
of vitamin C, E, B3 and B6, 
methionine, ziuc and other min- 
erals. It may also contain, so 
Edmondson believes, that foug- 
sooght altern a tiv e to sagging 
into armchairs and warrhhg 
Hadlee bowl out the Australian ' 
Test team - prolonged youth and 
vigour. 

As testimony to his rhmw. 
Edmondson has been taking 
antioxidants for 29 years and 
has, according to a medical 
colleague, the body of a 28-year- 
old. 


Clearly, hen is something 
that the International Olympic 
Committee should investigate. 
Whether it will appear on the 
IOC’s banned dra gs list or in 
their daily diet remains to be 
seen.

their second innings for an 
outright result to be achieved. 

That became a possibility 
when the tourists, who resumed 
at 49 for two. slumped to 130 for 
six shortly after lunch. But 
Border again proved equal to 
the task of steadying the Austra- 
lians. From 15 not out over- 
night, he carried his score to 114 
before declaring Australia’s sec- 
ond innings dosed at 219 for 
seven. 


Border’s century, which fol- 
lowed a superb 140 in the first 
innings, was his eighteenth in 
Test cricket, a performance 
which earned him the man of 
the match award. 

Border’s declaration gave his 
bowlers an hour’s work-out 
before the match ended, at 
which stage New Zealand were 
16 for one. With the first Test

Wojtinek held off a fate chal-

War waged on the 
plastic revolution 


Terry Shipman, the Leicester 
City chairman, has canvassed 
all Football League dubs in the 
campaign to have artificial 
pitches outlawed. Shipman Ins 
asked them whether they would 
support a ban at this summer’s 
annual meeting and stop' the 
spread of the {Nastk revolution..

that this summer will see the last 
chance for the dubs to control 
the use of artificial surfaces/* 
Shipman said. ■’■■■. - V 

Luton have said they would 
consider closure if ordered, to 
tear up their pitch, which has 
boosted their income from out- 
side sources, but Shipman said: 
“Any acceptance that football 
should take second {dace to 
commercial considerations will 
merely ensure the final collapse 
of the game as a spectator 
spon.” 

Leicester have sug ges te d three 
sample resolutions to fellow 
dubs: the first bans plastic 
pitches from the start of the 
1 988-89 season (except in excep- 
tional circumstances); the sec- 
ond limits the ban to the top two 
divisions; the third would allow 
QPR and Luton to retain then- 
surfaces but prevent other first 
and second division teams

Aberdeen 
go for 
tradition 

By Hugh Taylor 

Aberdeen, the Scottish cham- 
pions, whose style is effectively 
modern, may revert to more old 
fashioned methods in their at- 
tempt to reach the semi-final of 
the European Cup by beating 
IFK Gfteboig decisively in the 
first leg of the quarter-final tie at 
PiabdiTe tonight. 

Alex Ferguson, die Aberdeen 
manager, is fortunate in having 
at his command the ideal play- 
ers to make full use of tbe potent 
combination of accurate cross 
and telling header. 

He knows already that his 
centre forward, Eric Black, 
whose power in the air evokes 
memories of McGrory and 
Thornton, is tbe player most 
feared by tbe Gofeborg man- 
ager, Gunde Bengtssou, and 
soon be may recall the often 
injured but Superbly talented 
winger, Peter Weir, to provide 
the precise . crosses to whet 
Black's appetite. Certainly Aber- 
deen are firm favourites to win 
but their manager's biggest task 
may be to ensure that tbe 
players do not underrate their 
opponents. 

GOleborg may have come to 
Scotland with tales of woe: no 
competitive football since 
November, a 7-3 defeat by 
Wimbledon in a practice match, 
goalkcepmg problems, and wor- 
ries that -recently-signed playm 5 ™^™ & without seven

enced in Europe to pay heal to 
the com plain is of wily rivals. He 
has warned his ride that G 6 te~ 
borg, who are known as angels 
but play in the combative 
Viking style, are the only Swed- 
ish dub to have won a major 
European tournament, the 
UEFA Cup in 1982, have been 
skilfully rebuilt by their man- 
ager in pursuit of winning the 
European Cup, and in Tor 
Nilsson have a disting u ished 
striker and in Gerry Carfsson a 
director of the midfield in the 
Liam Brady mould. 

Notwithstanding, Alex Fer- 
guson considers that if Aber- 
deen play to form - and they 
have proved almost invincible 
at home, although their away 
record is poor - they can score 
tbe three goals be feds are 
neces sa ry to see them into the 
semi-finals. 

The thaw has come in time to 
allow play at Pitiodrie but 
Aberdeen had to move south to 
vain at Tannadice for what 
Ferguson is describing as their 
most important match. It was a 
helpful gesture by Dundee 
United to allow tbeir rivals for 
tbe Scottish championship the 
use of their beared pitch. 

It is difficult to visualize 
Aberdeen ever having a better 
chance than this to reach the 
European Cup semi-finals but it 
is no secret that the players 
would be happier if they were to 
receive more encouragement 
from their supporters, who are 
loyal and proud of their team 
but hardly the most vociferous 
of followers. 


Every few years the European 
Cup produces a truly outstand- 
ing team. During 30 years there 
have been no more than seven 
or eight- When Barcelona, thrifi- 
ing]y adventurous, ran away 
with the Spanish title last year 
they looked good enough per- 
haps to join that rare group, but 
a calamitous succession of inju- 
ries this season has tested the 
ingenuity of tbeir manager. 
Terry Venables, to its limit: and 
never more so than in the 
European Cup quarter-final 
against Juventus. For Barcelona 
to defeat the cup holders would 
be an exceptional achievement 

Ever since 1961, when a 
scintillating old-fashioned ‘for- 
ward line* of Kubala, Suarez, 
Evaristo, Kocsis and Cribor was 
undermined in the final against 
Benfica by two goal keeping 
blunders beyond even the 
imagination of Grobbdaar, 
Barcelona have been trying to 
buy tbeir way to the European 
tide. Despite the coming and 
going of Cruyff and then 
Maradona, and of managers 
such as Michels, Weisweder, 
Lattek and Menotti. they had 
only once subsequently won the 
Spanish title. Then Venables, 
Schuster, Archibald and the 
most integrated attacking team 
seemed capable of realizing the 
Catalonian dream. 

Yet in tonight’s first leg, the 


round against Porto four 
months ago, while Juventus will 
be missing only Serena, the 
attacking partner of Laudxup. 
because of suspension 
Venables and his assistant. 
Alan Harris, are this morning 
waiting to see the reaction 


From David Miller, Barcelona 

overnight to training yesterday 
of Alcsanco, their dominating 
centre back, and Archibald, 
whose away goal in a 3-1 defeat 
in Porto earned tbeir quarter- 
final place. Archibald has a 
slight groin strain and is doubt- 
ful. 

Definitely absent are 
Schuster, still recovering from a 
calf injury, and Caldere from 
midfield, and three of the best 
four forwards, Rojo. Marcos 
and Clos. For most dubs this 
would be a disastrous setback, 
yet Venables, permutating 
among every member of a squad 
of 24. has kept his team in 
second place in pursuit of Real 
Madrid in tbe league and has 
reached the semi-final of the 
National Cup. 

Venables, who has studiously 
refused to be pessimistic, under 
the daily pressure of the swarm 
of press and television and the 
120.000 supporters who will be 
at Not) Camp tonight, says that 
tbe team can still perform 
without Schuster or any other 
player. This has given con- 
fidence to the reserves such as 
Alonso and Amarilla in attack. 
Pedraza in midfield and Fradere 
at centre back, and morale 
remains high following his re- 
moval of the captaincy from 
Schuster. 

In the triangle of power 
fluctuating between Schuster, 
Venables and Nunes, the presi- 
dent— who has been loyal to his 
manager — it is not yet dear why 
Schuster has wanted to break a 
contract which still has two 
years 10 ran. The West German 
gossiping tabloid. Bi/d, yes- 
terday alleged that Adidas, with 
whom Schuster is under 
commercial contract, had of- 
fered a huge financial incentive 


to persuade him 10 make peace 
with Franz Beckenbauer and 
return to the World Cup team, 
but by mid-day Adidas head- 
quarters emphatically denied 
this 

Venables, who has never 
found Schuster anything but 
wholly committed on the field, 
is calmly waiting for the player 
to disclose his hand in the 
negotiations, and meanwhile 
believes that all is far from lost 
against Juventus. He travelled 
with Harris to see Juventus in 
an unimpressive 2-1 victory 
over Udinese on Sunday. They 
both consider that the compul- 
sive defensive mentality of the 
Italians, who give little support 
to Laudrup up front, gives 
Barcelona a realistic chance 
over two legs. 

“We can win the tie as much 
in Turin as here”, Venables 
says. “We have to be careful that 
the emotional demands of our 
crowd, wanting us logo forward, 
does not encourage us to leave 
ourselves exposed to Juventus 
counter-attacks. We have to be 
sure they don’t score an a way 
goal, and are obliged 10 come at 
us in Turin in two weeks' time, 
by when several of our injured 
players may have recovered." 

Juventus, winners of the 
World Club Championship 
even after the departure of 
Bo nick. Rossi and Tardelli. are 
keen to retain the European title 
in a final fire of the horrendous 
overtones of last May. Part of 
Venables’s strategy to ensure 
they do 001 is to use zonal 
marking in midfield, as North- 
ern Ireland -did against France 
last week, and not get drawn out 
of position by Platini’s skill on 
the balL It promises to be a game 
of chess rather than fireworks. 


Pfaff a spy out in the cold 


Munich (Reuter) — Bayern 
Munich's Belgian international 
Jean-Marie Pfaff has swapped 
his usual goalkeeping role for 
that of master spy in the run-up 
to his team's European Cup 
quarter-final with Anderiecht 
tonight 

Pfaff who teams up with 
many of the Anderiecht players 
in the Belgian national ride, has 
given the Bayern trainer Udo 
Lattek a thorough assessment of 
what tbe West German cham- 
pions can expect. But Lattek will 
continue to dispense with Pfaff s 
services between the posts, deal- 
ira a harsh blow to his chances 
or playing in this summer's 
World Cup finals in Mexico. 

Though Pfaff has fully recov- 
ered from a groin operation late 
Iasi year, the brilliant form ofhis 
replacement Rairaood Auroann 
is keeping him out of the team. 
The unhappy Pfaff rated one of 
the best goalkeepers in the 
world, desperately wanted to see 
some action, especially as Bel- 
gian national trainer Guy Thys 
has said be will play in Mexico 
only if he is first choice at 
Bayern. Pfaff is also keen to 
show he is better than the 


Anderiecht goalkeeper Jacques 
Munaron, up to now Belgium’s 
second choice. 

Anderiecht. the Belgian 
League leaders, boast a for- 
midable attack who have scored 
67 goals this season. But there 
are strong doubts over whether 
they can strike fear into the 
heart of a Bayern defence who 
have conceded only 25 goals in 
as many games. 

Bayern may be only a pale 
imitation of the great side who 
won the European Cup three 
years in a row in the mid-1970s, 
but they are on top form at the 
moment, having picked up 14 
points from eight games. 

In the quarter-finals of tbe 
Cup Winners’ Cup Rapid Vi- 
enna, last season's beaten final- 
ists, face a stern test against an 
improved Dynamo Kiev side for 
whom Blokhin has been 
out stan ding. The Ukrainians 
recently won the title feu* the 
eleventh time in 25 years. 

Benfica, who are managed by 
the Englishman John 
Mortimore and are still trying to 
recapture past European glory, 
will stan slight favourites 
against Dnkla Prague .In a meet- 


ing between teams from East 
and West Germany. Dynamo 
Dresden take on and should 
prove technically superior to 
Bayer Uerdingen. 

Red Star Belgrade's en- 
counter with Atletjco Madrid 
could hinge on how well the 
Spanish team's suspect defence 
cope on a heavy pitch in the first 
legin the Yugoslav capital. 

The other Madrid giants. 
Real, go for a big first-leg lead as 
they defend the UEFA Cup 
against the unfavoured Swiss 
team. Neuchate! Xamax. One off 
Real's three big summer 
signings. Rafael Gordilio. will 
miss the ga m e 

After impressive victories 
over Metz. 1 orino and Dnepr, 
Hajduk Split look a possible bet 
for the trophy and should 
progress to the semi-finals at the 
expense of Waregem- 

The UEFA Cup provides 
Inter Milan with their last 
chance of glory this season and 
progress could depend on the 
ability of star strikers Kari~ 
Heinz Rummenigge and 
Altobelli to take whatever open- 
ings come their way in the first 
leg against Nantes.

Mexico City 

The England manager, Bobby 
Robson, here b Mexico oa a 
three-day visit, is worried about 
the England fans, public rela- 
tions with tbe Mexicans and tbe 
altitude problem. But, stub- 
bornly cheerful, he says he is 
“here to win the World Cm", 
reckoning England are one of 10 
teams with a chance of becooriog 
world champions is June- 

“Tea countries we in it,” be 
said. “There’s no one team with 
a dear edge over the rest, none 
that stands . out like an 
EddystoaeBghthOftse^battliere 
are 10 tbafli bo difficult to 
beat’* 

Robson singled oat France, 
Argentina and Bnuff Abo, 
possibly out of deference to Ids 
hosts, be mentioned Mexico, 
though lew here believe they will 
be serins contenders. One 
player, fittle known in Britain, 
who Robson thinks will be worth 
watching out for in Jane is 
Uruguayan striker Enzo 
Francescoti, known as “Tbe 
Prince” In Arg entina where, 
ittackofcfc* . 
he h the league's 
.leading scorer. 

Robson is aware he has some 
ground to make op a winning 
over the locals in Monterrey — 
the stage for England's first 
round moap — haring caused 
something of a storm in tbe local 
press with remarks about the 
aasuitabQfty of the city as a 
World Cap site. 

But he also knows that 
troublemakers among the En- 


gland fans coaid undermine afl 
hs best PR intentions. 

“Alt it takes is two people and 
you’ve got a problem cm your 
hands. Unfortunately, that prob- 
lem then affects us. We can’t 
ignore it and inevitably it takes 
the edge off oar game,” said 
Robson. 

“The players are fed up with 
this sort of thing. Let's jast hope 
those who make tbe trip orerare 
the decent majority who love the 
game and jnst want to be part of 
a marveflous World Cap.” 

Robson is fa Mexico with the 
England team doctor, Verona 
Edwards, to have a dose look at 
facilities for his players fa tire 
hot northern city of Monterrey 
and fa nearby SaffiUo, where the 
team will be staying. 

Robson expressed initatioa at 
■criticism by Kerin K eeg an, 
among others, at the deriston to 
use Saltillo as the team's bead- 
quarters. “We have to five at 
akkaAe. There's as way around 
that. That's why we have no 
choice bat SafttBo,” said Rob- 
son. 

Saltillo's disadvantage is tint 
it is 75 minutes drive from 
Monterrey. Bui, at 5,100 feet H 
k around the average attitude of 
the other World Cup sites, and 
3*500 feet higher than Monter- 
rey. 

Robson said, however, that 
die team would go down to 
Monterrey every day to 
traIn.“The players have to get 
osed to the heat aad the flight of 
the balL” 


& 





Robson; stubbornly cheerful 

Intere sti n gl y. Robson appears 
mere worried about the thinness 
of the air at it wUl affect ball 
control than its possible effects 
on tbe fitness of his players. “If 
ear pwwwitg doesn't work, weff 
thetL_" said Robson, finishing 
the sentence with an e xpre s s iv e 
shrug. 

Dr Edwards is helping Rob- 
son in ensuring facilities at the 
team's hotel faSaltiilo will be ap 
to scratch, with special attention 
to such matters as the qnefity of 
the bottled water. Robson said 
be was “delighted” with the 
hotel which has promised to 


provide the players (who arrive 
oa May 25) with table teams and 
pool tables and a juke box, 
among other necessities. 

Robson has a fist of food Hems 
be will present to the hotel 
management as essential for his 
players. High on tbe list is an 
entry for HP sauce. “The lads 
love it” explained Robson. 

He said he has no intention of 
bringing oat food from England, 
or even a chef, as Sir Alf Ramsey 
did in 1970. “We don't want to 
antagonize the Mexicans this 
time around,” said Robson, 
clearly recalling the negative 
impact of what people here saw 
as Ramsey's patronizing jingo- 
ism. 

Robson, who emphasized the 
need to get on with the job at 
hand without dwelling exces- 
sively on the difficulties, insisted 
on not faking a pessimistic view 
of tbe backlog in teagne fixtures 
at home. “The Football League 
have promised the season will be 
over by May 3. I'D be faking my 
players away with me oa May 7 
even If there are still league 
gaums left to play." 

For afl his confidence, Robson 
co aid not repress a wry anile 
when asked to comment mi the 
intensive World Cup prepara- 
tions of {be Mexican squad who; 
come June, will not have played 
a league game iu 12 months. 
“It's tbe difference between 
black and white, isn't it?" said 
Robson.

Advocacy for 
Sunday racing 
put forward 


Sir Woodrow Wyatt, chair- 
man of the Horserace Toul- 
isator Board, yesterday called 
for revising the law to allow 
Sunday racing. Speaking at the 
Toie's annual lunch, he reported 
ihat crowds in Ireland had 
trebled when racing was 
switched 10 Sunday. 

He said: “There seems to be 
something wrong with the 
Jockey Gub control of futures, 
but they have become so 
enlighicnal I am sure they will 
act immediately to correct this 
anomaly. The Jockey Gub are 
radical leaders in supporting 
Sunday racing against the 
conservative pessimists. Dear 
Old England, always decades 
behind everyone che. 

“Once the" English made jokes 
about the Irish. Now the Irish 
have the laugh on us. They are 
promoting Sunday racing bril- 
liantly. At Leopardslown in 
1985 the Wessetl meeting was 
on a Wednesday. This year it 
was on Sunday. February 16. 
The audience trebled. 
Bookmakers' turnover nearly 
doubled and the Tote turnover 
more than doubled to make a 
new course record. 

“The racing industry could, 
like other major sports, break 
the law and have Sunday racing 
We don't because until the law is 
changed, cash betting would be 
illegal — and there would be 
plenty of it on the course, in the 
pubs and clubs and the back 
streets. I'm sure our enlightened 
Home Secretary will recognize 
the nobility of our restraint and 
take action to update the law on 
line with all other civihzed 
countries." 

He went on: “Last year 1 said 
the Tote profits for the year 
ending March 31, 1985, should 
be around £l.3m. In the event 
they were £ 1.466m. an increase 
of 59 per cent over the previous 
year. That was before our profit- 
sharing scheme which cost 
£66.000. It gave all our staff the 
equivalent of an extra week's 
pay. 

“We had hoped for profits a 
bit better by the end of this 
March- Thai was before we lost 
50 race days in February — a 
record. And we are still losing 
race days we had last year.’’ 

He said: “Our sponsorship is 
spread over 45 courses. We are 
not so publicity-conscious as 
only to sponsor races which are 
televised. In (986 our sponsor- 
ship has a budget of £266.800. 
That is now larger than the 
sponsorship of any of the big 
four bookmakers. Each is much 
richer than we are. 

“I am not saying this as a dig 
at my bookmaker friends, just to 
encourage them to try to do 
better than the Tote, which a few 
years ago many bad written off 
as a spent force in racing We 
have kept our profits in racing 
In the calendar year 1984 our 
direct payments to racecourses 


were £839.000. Last year they 
were £990.000. In 1986 we 
estimate they they will be 
£1 .3m. This is a pretty rapid rate 
of increase. With growing co- 
operation from the racecourses 
we hope it will continue. 

“The Levy Board have re- 
lieved us. of paying levy on our 
credit turnover on-course form 
April / — a levy which was never 
paid by the favoured book- 
makers. This reliefbas helped us 
— though it nowhere near covets 
the cost - to increase our 
payment to racecourses on kiosk 
turnover to 4 per cent from 
April I. We are also increasing 
from four to 5 per cent the 
percentage we pay to race- 
courses of our racecourse bet- 
ting shop turnover. Our kiosk 
turnover i$ now over a third ot 
tbe cash turnover we take on the 
racecourses. 

“Four years ago the Tote 
share of racecourse turnover 
had sunk to 12 J per cent Now 
it is up to 1 5.5 per cent but my 
bookmaker friends should not 
weep vet- In 1969 the Tote share 
of the turnover on-course was 
25 per cent. Though we intend 
to get back to that figure, we will 
not get there this year. The more 
the Tote takes on course, the 
more money we pay to the 
racecourses. 

“When you include our sup- 
port for the Racing Information 
Bureau, the Apprentices School, 
and to the Levy, our contribu- 
tion to racing was £1 ,594m in 
1983-84. £1.773m in 1984-85 
and we expea it to be around 
£2m in 1985-86. In addition our 
aid to racecourses with new 
buildings came to £438.000 in 
1985. We expect it to be 
£600.000 in 1986. 

He continued: “A fnendly 
word to the Racecourse Associ- 
ation. Don't try to charge too 
much for televising your races 
daily. There is a danger that 
bookmakers will be content 
with the BBC «nd Channel 4 
televised races and fill in the rest 
of the day with live greyhound 
racing That would be a tremen- 
dous blow to the Racecourse 
Association and to the Levy, 
which gets nothing from grey- 
hound raring 

“While horse racing has been 
off, untelevised dog racing has 
maintained the belting shops' 
turnover somewhere between 60 
per cent and 70 per cent of 
'normal. Televised live grey- 
hound racing if not matched by 
an increase in put from the 
Racecourse Association could 
make a dramatic shift in the 
pattern of betting in the shops. 

“[ don’t believe attendances 
will suffer much if at all. 
Televising of other sports has 
multiplied the live crowds. It is 
up to the racecourses to see that 
any newcomers enjoy racing 
when they try it."

ATHLETICS 


Coe stops playing 
musical chairs 

By Pat Botcher, Athletics Correspondent 


Sebastian Coe’s 3.000 metres 
in the indoor match against the 
United States at Cosford on 
Saturday may be the last major 
event he will ran on a domestic 
track until the Commonwealth 
games in Edinburgh in July. 
Coe will eschew the televised 
spectaculars in favour of run- 
ning abroad or for his Haringey 
club in British Athletic League 
fixtures. 

Coe denied that his decision 
had anything to do with the new 
subventions package, which has 
halved the £ 20.000 per race 
which he got for competing in 
last year’s televised specfacu- 
lars. 

But in the past Coe has fainted 
at a distaste for the lack of 
financial provisions for British 
international athletes (apart 
from Zola Budd), considering 
the amount of money coming 
into the sport. The principal 
reason he cited yesterday was 
the British weather, which 
caused the recurrence of a back 
injury last summer, resulting in 
an early finish to his season. 

He also hinted that he would 
welcome avoiding the game of 
musical chairs, with athletes 
swapping events to avoid one 
another, which culminated in 


the Olympic champion. 
Joaquim Cruz, being banished 
from Crystal Palace last year. 

Coe added: “Imagine trying to 
back out of a race because of the 
weather when thousands of 
people have paid to see you. If I 
go to club meetings in May. and 
the weather's likely to do me 
more harm than good, my club 
officials wilL I hope, be more 
aware of my need to withdraw.” 

Coe. who was attending a 
function which Cadbury’s are 
sponsoring to raise at least 
£25,000 for the Sport Aid 
Foundation, also believed that 
with so many highly compet- 
itive meetings and champion- 
ships in the calendar nowadays, 
the league fixtures would permit 
him to experiment with 400- 
metre races and relays for his 
speed or with 5.000-metre races, 
the distance at which he hopes 
to compete in the 1987 world 
championships. But first he has 
to try to get past Dave Lewis, his 
partner in Saturday’s race for 
England against the United 
States, sponsored by Kodak. 
Lewis beat Coe with relative 
ease in the AAA indoor 
championships at Cosford five 
weeks ago.

THE TIMES WEDNESDAY MARCH 5 1986 


RACING:BLANK SPELL DRAWS TO AN END AND A GRAND NATIONAL DREAM BEGINS 


Fitzgerald’s fit 
team should 


leave the rest 


struggling 


B> Mandarini Michael Phillips) 


Jimmy Fitzgerald looks lhe 
trainer to follow at C'auerick 
lotto t if racing does rake place. 
Al ter expressing a fair amount 
of surprise at the prospect 
yesterday, the genial 5 1 -year- 
old Irishman, who lives not 
far away at Malum and now- 
commands one of the most 
successful stables in the land, 
went on 10 intimate that his 
horses will not fail tor want of 
limess even after an enforced 
break of four weeks. 


The Rudby Selling Handi- 
cap certainly represents a drop 
in class tor Call Me Claire. 


“Mine have done us much 
strong' groundwork as they 
would have done normally: 
perhaps, upon reflection, even 
more. - were his words. Long 
stints up his all-weather strip, 
interspersed with (rips to the 
seaside to work along Filey 
beach seem to have done the 
trick. 

With one eye cocked upon 
the rich pickings to be had at 
Cheltenham next week. Fitz- 
gerald went on to say ihaUhc 
thaw permitting, one bit of 
fast work on the grass this 
weekend should put his good 
horses, such as last year's Gold 
Cup winner Forgive 'n‘ Forget 
and the Hennessy hero Gal- 
way Blaze just about right. 

Today at Caucrick Fitzger- 
ald will be doubly represented 
by Door Step 3ftd Bally -Go in 
the Peter Vaux Memorial 
Trophy Handicap Chase 
which is the feature race. For 
Door Step, who won the race 
12 months ago. this will be the 
first of the season. 

In the circumstances a re- 
peat is probably expecting loo 
much especially under top 
weight. But his stable compan- 
ion. Balls -Go. in the hands of 
Mark Dwyer should be a 
tough nut to crack. He ran not 
long before the freeze-up at 
Market Rasen. where his third 
place behind Another City 
and Donegal Prince augured 
well for the future, especially 
bearing in mind that that was 
his first race of the season and 
he was taking on others who 
were hard as iron. 

Welfare, who has won four 
races this term, including his 
first, which proves that he is a 
clean-winded animal, strikes 
me as being a greater threat 
than the nov ice. Prince Santi- 
ago. 

Call Me Claire (2.45) and 
Tawny Spirit (4.15) could be 
other "winners for Fitzgerald 
on his local track. 


Welhcrhv to suggest that a 
race like this should be there 
for the laking.cven with 
Maicloi in the field. 

Tawny Spirit, my selection 
for the second divison of the 
Hornby Novices Hurdle, is 
closely related on his dam’s 
side to Fair Kitty, who is still 
among the best that Fitzgerald 
has trained in racing's latest 
version of Who’s Who. 


Not surprisingly. Fitzgerald 
has a soft spot for him. He has 
been careful not to rush 
Tawny Spirit knowing that he 
possesses the size and scope 
that decrees that he will be so 
much belter after he has been 
given lime to develop strength 
To match that frame. 

All the same. Tawny Spirit 
still ran well enough in his 
only race ovcrhurdles so far to 
suggest that he could even be 
up to coping with the more 
experienced He3thcrvalc on 
these terms. Before that he 
had won a “bumper” at 
Market Rasen. 


The earlier division should 
be won by Aguada Beach, who 
rates the’ nap. Also trained at 
Mahon by Peter Eastcrby, 
whose work, these past weeks, 
has also taken place alternate- 
ly on all-weather strips and the 
sands beside the sea. Aguada 
Beach certainly did enough at 
Wctherby where he was run- 
ncr-up to Ballyarry and at 
Cheltenham where he finished 
fourth behind Saffron Lad to 
say that he ought to be able to 
cope with the likes of Bullom. 
Lc Plait D’Or and Star's 
Delight. 

Finally, there should be a 
rip-roaring duel for the Newby 
Nov ices Chase between Cool 
Decision and Allien Glazed. 
My feeling is that Cool Deci- 
sion may wrcll be hard-pressed 
to give a stone to Allten 
Glazed even though he has 
two victories over today’s 
course and distance to his 
name. For just before the 
recent hard weather imposed 
its clamp. Allien Glazed ran 
really well at Sandown to 
finish third behind Berlin and 
Desert Orchid in the Scilly 
Isles Novices Chase and they 
arc accepted as the best begin- 
ners in the land - at least, over 
that distance. 


Catterick hope after thaw 


Prospects of racing resum- 
ing in Britain much earlier 
than expected after a break of 
23 days depend on a 7.30 am 
inspection this morning. The 
clerk of the course. Kit Patter- 
son, said: “There is a hope. 
We have a strong west wind 
and the frost is coming out of 
the ground.” Today’s other 


scheduled meeting at Bangor 
was abandoned on Monday. 

Inspections are planned to- 
day for both of tomorrow’s 
scheduled meetings — Strat- 
ford( 1 2.0) Wincanton(2.0).

Tumell looks up to ‘The Boss’ 


In rfie Third of a series on 
some of the less obvious candi- 


dates for the Grand Na- 
tional. JOHN KARTER 


tional. JOHN KARTER visits 
Andy Tumell and his 40-1 
chance. Tracvs Special 


Liverpool’s bookmakers win 
be running for cover if Tracys 
Special wins the Grand Na- 
tional on April 5. For the lass 
who looks after him, 21-year- 
old Tracy Glover (the name is 
purely coincidental), was 
brought cp just a horseshoe’s 
throw from the Aintree coarse 


who ran well enough behind 
Commander Robert at 1 


and her vast Scouse army of 
family and friends — half the 


family and friends — half the 
city of Liverpool, she laugh- 
ingly assures ns — will be 
piling all the cash they can 
carry on the nine-year-old 
gelding. 

When she was knee high to 
a Shetland pony Miss 
Glover’s grandfather would 
take her down to the famous 
Melling Road to watch the 
National horses thunder past. 
She became obsessed with 
racing and with the world’s 
greatest steeplechase in par- 
ticular. She remembers sneak- 
ing in over a wall and cheering 
the mighty Red RnmC^Tracys 
is much better than him*’, she 
jokes) and since then she has 
nurtured an all-consuming 
dream that she would one day 
lead a horse into that hallowed 
winner’s enclosure. 

While the Glover clan may 
be relying on blind faith in 
then- support for the horse she 
refers to as “The Boss", 
because of the way he lords It 
in his stable, the same could 
not be said of Andy TnrneU, 
who trams the horse at East 
Hendred in Oxfordshire. 
Hardly the sort of man given 
to blinkered orer-optimism, 
Turnell has good, solid rea- 
sons for believing that Tram 
Special could not only fulfil 
Miss Glover's dream, hot also 
fill a gaping hole in the big- 
race record of the Tnmells in 
this year's Seagram-spon- 
sored event 

The Turnell name became 
synonymous with success in 
the post-war era of National 
Hunt racing. Andy's father. 
Bob, bagged nearly every 
worthwhile prize as a trainer, 
including the Gold Cup and 
Champion Hurdle, and Andy, 
although just missing out on 
the bine riband events, rode 
such outstanding horses as 
The Laird, Birds Nest and 
Beacon Light to many great 
victories. 



: 4 

VV.W t 


Sharing a dream: the two Tracys put their heads together to plot a path to glory at Aintree! 


Unequivocal view 
of a special magic 


Andy Turnell also won two 
Norwegian Grand Nationals 
and a Swedish one, but as yet, 
though, no Tnrneil has app- 
eared on the Aintree roll of 
honour. Bob Turnell wonld 
have won on Cloncarrig in 
1950, Freebooter’s year, hot 
for falling at the second last. 
He also rode Irish Lizzard into 
third place in 1953. 


As a trainer, Tnrneil 
senior’s best result was in 
1969 when be saddled three 
horses and all completed the 
course - Rondetto (third), The 
Beeches (fourth) and 
Lime burner (twelfth). 

The best Andy Turnell’s 13 


rides yielded was a third place, 
on Charles Dickens in 1974. 
However, had it not been for a 
broken breastplate which seri-

breathing and brought him to 
a standstill after tire line . he 
might well have given Brian 
Fletcher and Red Rmn some- 
thing to think about on then- 
way to a second victory. 

Tnmell also fell at the first 
fence in two Nationals, but his 
overall view of the great race is 
unequivocal. “There’s a magic 
about it," be .says, his blue 
eyes sparkling. “I loved riding 
in it Yon feel you're really 
achieved something just to 
complete the course, or even 
get over the Chair for that 
matter." 

So, as Steve Knight canters 
down to the start on Tracys 
Special, TarneU’s first runner 
as a trainer in the National, he 
admits he will not find playing 
the role of impotent onlooker 
easy. And it will be made 
particularly hard by the fact 
that Tumell believes that 
Knight has the genuine Na- 
tional article underneath him. 

“Given luck in running, 1

way chance," Turnell says in 
that slow, considered way of 
his. “He’s got a touch of dass 


and there are very few horses 
with his ability on that sort of 
handicap mark." 

That ability saw Tracys 
Special win five good races the 
season before last culminat- 
ing in a victory in the Ritz Club 
Chase at the Cheltenham 
Festival There he beat 
Righthand Man, who was 
conceding only (fib and who 
went on to finis h runner-up in

that Tracys Special wonld

piece before he developed a leg

Sensing tangible 
air of optimism 


Turoell has not enjoyed tire 
rub of tire green since ire 
moved to East Hendred from 
the traditional family head- 
quarters at Marlborough. 
Two- thirds of his horses have 
been out of action for various 
reasons and he has has only 
two winners this season. 


“He didn't actually break 
down," Turnell says, "but he 
developed a ‘leg’ and we 
derided that as be was only 
seven ft would be wise to give 
him the rest of the season off 
and bring him bade this 
season for a crack at the 
National." 

Tracys Special had his 
comeback race when fourth of 
four — he ran well for a long 


Yet there is an almost 
tangible air of optimism iro- 
ning through tire yard, with a 
certain bay gelding, and a 
certain tong-distance steeple- 
chase very much on everyone’s 
lips. The good-humoured staff 
of Orchard Stables may tease 
the lass from Liverpool unmer- 
cifully, hot deep down they 
believe that April 5 could be 
Tracy’s special day.

With the Grand National less 
than five weeks away, the 
groundstaff at Aintree are well 
on target with their prepara- 
tions, despite the recent cold 
weather. Half of the 30 fences 
are now ready for this year’s 
race on April 5. 

John Parrett, the racecourse 
manager, said:“ln the past we 
have had problems getting the 
materials through the 
snow.bui this year we got all 
the birch and spruce to the 
course in plenty of time. 

“ The spruce comes from 
the Forestry Commission in 
North Wales and the birch 
from Cumbria. We also get 
some birch and gone locally at 
Lord Derby's Knowsley es- 


tate. The course itself is in 
good shape and we have not 
had a lot of frost up here.” 


Parrett is anticipating a 
bumper crowd this year as the 
tickets for the seating area in 
the County Stand are already 
sold out “But there is still 
room on the terrace of the 
stand and this is considered 
the best viewpoint on the 
racecourse,” Parrett said. 


“With a three-week break , 
between Cheltenham and 
Aintree this year, instead of | 
two, we expect to have even i 
better raring than usual. We 1 
have a new £20,000 race this 
year, the Glenliver Hurdle for j 
four-year-olds, on the Friday." |

(Tie sport has been followed 
closely by the Jockey Club since 
il started in this country in 2978 
and yesterday's decision under- 
lines its growing popularity and 
sound administration. The 
number of registered horses in 
the sport last year was 179 
compared with 7’5 in 1983. 

The Arab Horse Society wtU 
continue in the day-to-day run- 
ning, but the rules have to be 
approved by lhe Jockey Club 
and the owners and riders will 
be subject to the Jockey Club's 
disciplinary measures (So far the 
Arab Horse Society have not 
needed to employ any such 
measures). 


one major change. All the horses 
must now be amateur ridden 
and amateur trained, thus bring- 
ing entries from abroad into line 
with British entries. The French 
horses which won last year's two 
international races in Britain, 
were both professionally 
trained. Mrs Joan Rate I it the 
chairman of the Arab Horse 
Society’s racing committee, was i 
optimistic yesterday that the ! 
Society will lead Europe into j 
making Arab horse racing an alt- : 
amateur sporty !

Law Report March 5 1986 


Share exchange is 
disposal for tax 


Westcott (Inspector of Taxes) 
v Woolcombers Ltd 
Before Mr Justice Hoffmann 
(Judgment given February 25] 
To ascertain the acquisition 
cost of an asset far the purposes 
of computing the amount ot any 
chargeable gains or allowable 
losses, the transfer or an asset bv 
one company to its subsidiary in 
exchange for an allotment of 
shares wos a “disposar of that 


asset. 

Mr Justice Hotlmann so de- 
cided in a reserved judgment in 
the Chancery Division dismiss- 
ing a corporation tax appeal bx 
the Crown from a decision of 
Bradford general commis- 
sioners in favour of the taxpayer 
company. Woo (combers Ltd. 

Hax ing considered the inter- 
action and the cITccb of para- 
graphs 4 and 6 of Schedule 7 and 
paragraph 2(1) of Schedule 13 uj 
the Finance Act 1965. his Lord- 
ship held that paragraph 2(1) of 
Schedule 13 applied to such an 
exchange so as to entitle the 
taxpayer company in claim an 
allowable toss. 

Mr Christopher McCall for 
the Crown: Mr Andrew Park. 
OC. for the tax pa>cr company. 

MR JUSTICE HOFFMANN 
said that in N65 Wooleombers 
(Holdings) Ltd (Old W> ac- 
quired an asset, the share capital 
of three companies, for £1.2 
million. In 1966 Old W trans- 
ferred those shares to its subsid- 
iary. Topmakers Ltd. in 
exchange for the allotment of 
1 .999.900 new £1 shares, cred- 
ited as fully paid. 

In 1971 Topmakers sold the 
shares in the three companies to 
the taxpayer company, also a 
subsidiary of Old W. for 
£601.235.’ 

In 1972 the three companies 
were wound up: the market 
value of the assets received by 
the taxpayer company by way of 
distribution in the liquidation 
was £601.235. 

The question was whether the 
last transaction gave rise to an 
allowable loss available to the 
taxpayer company for lhe pur- 
pose of calculating its corpora- 
tion tax liability on chargeable 
gains. 

The liquidation of the three 
companies was a deemed dis- 
posal by the taxpayer company 
of the shares in consideration of 
an amount equal to the market 
value or the proceeds of the 
liquidation, that is. £601.235. 

The dispute concerned the 
amount of the consideration for 
which the taxpayer was deemed 
to have acquired the shares. 

By paragraph 21 1 } ofSchcduIc 
13 where a member of a group of 
companies disposed of an asset 
to another member, both mem- 
bers were to be treated for tax 
purposes as if the asset acquired 
by the member to whom the 
disposal was made was acquired 
far a consideration of such 
amount as would secure that on 
the other’s disposal neither gain 
nor loss accrued. 

The commissioners, applying 
that provision, held that the 
taxpayer company be deemed to 
have acquired the shares for 
£1.2 million and that accord- 
ingly the liquidation gave rise to 
an allowable loss. 

The Crown argued that para- 
graph 2(1) had no application to 
the 1966 transfer between Old W 
and Topmakers. That sub- 
mission was based on paragraph 
4(2) of Schedule 7 to the 1965 
Act whereby: “a reorganization 
or reduction of a company’s 
share capital shall not be treated 
as involving any disposal of the 
original shares or any ac- 
quisition of the new holding . . . 
but the original shares (taken as 
a single asset) and the new

and owners intending to ran

must make a fresh application 
by 29 March 29. 


Before Mr Justice Mncphcrson 
[Judgment gricn February 26) 

The requirement in section 
33(3 Kc) of the Supplementary 
Benefits Act 1976. as substituted 
by Schedule 2 to (he Social 
Security Act 1980. that draft 
regulations be laid before Par- 
liament was a mandatory rather 
than a directory requirement. 

In making the Supplemcntarv 
Bcncfil (Requirements and Re- 
sources) Miscellaneous Pro- 
visions (No 2) Regulations (SI 
1985 No 1835) that requirement 
was complied with even though 
the booklet Supplementary 
benefit Maximmn . Inttumrs. 
Initial Periods uttd Hoard and 
Ijilfsinn .\rcus was not laid 
before Parliament because that 
booklet was an external docu- 
ment and not pan of the 
statutory instrument. 

Mr Justice Macpherson so 
held in the Queen’s Bench 
Division dismissing applica- 
tions by the London Borough of 
Camden and Miss Bevcricv 
Nelson for judicial review of the 
enactment of paragraph 5 of 
Schedule lA and paragraph 5(2) 
or Schedule 2 A to the Supple- 
mentary Benefit (Require- 
ments) Regulations (SI 1983 No 
1399) by the provisions or the 
19«5 Regulations which came 
into farce on November 25. 
1985. 

Mr Richard DraKWc and Miss 
Beverley Lang for Camden: Mr 
Richard Drabble far Miss Nel- 
son. Mr Michael BclolT. QC'and 
Mr John Laws for the Depart- 
ment of Health and Social 
Security 

MR Jl'STICE MACPHER- 
SON said that ihc prime point 
concerned the failure to lav the 
booklet together uiih the draft 
regulations bclore Parliament 

Before turning to that point' 
ms Lordship would deal with 
lh £ . vx,,nd >«ue namelv 
nheihvr or not the requirement 
irr section Wkc) «as a man- 
dators or regulators require- 
ment There wa s hul c d lre .., 
auihontv available to help m 
making that decision 

The academic textbooks 1a,d 
down no direct guidance and 
stressed that each ease had to 
depend upon us ov\ n cireum- 
Manccs 

Having touked at the vanous 

cases to which he was referred 
his lordship concluded that 


(urfdrng (taken m a vn^le xswi) 
shall he treated as the same asset 
acquired as the original shares 
were acquired.” 

That pnn ision was made in 
apph ioa share exchange in one 
company for shares in another 
tiv paragraph Ml) (Cum pony 
amalgamations). The result wav 
the C rown said. tloi fiW VL had . j 
to be treated as nul basing 
disposed of the shares m . the 
three eompanres or acquired the 
shares in Topmakers. 

Thus, il araued. Topmakers 
had to be taken as awpnring lhc 
shares at their then market value 
_ agreed to be £601.235 - the 
transaction being mhenvisc 
lhan bv way uf bargain made al 
arm’s ' length tsee section 
22(4 Ha) of the 1965 Act). - 

Mr Park . accepted that to 
make paragraph 2( 1 1 apply there* 
must have been a disposal b> 

Old W to Topmakers. He said, 
that paragraphs Ml autf 4(2) o( 
Schedule 7 applied only lor the 
purpose of computing the tax 
liability ofOld consequent on 
the share exchange. 

For all other purposes, be \p 
%aid. the transaction remained, 
what in truth it was: a disposal 
of the shares in the three 
companies hy OW ^ lo 
Topmakers. The two limbs' of 
paragraph 4(2) formed pan of a 
single tax hypothesis the 
assumption of a .single continu- 
ing asset and the absence of a 
disposal and acquisititw were 
two sides of the same coin. 

The hypothesis was soldy 
directed to the consequences of 
an exchange by one persoo of 
one shareholding for another. It 
required that that person -be 
taxed as if he had continued to 
own the same asset 

Since that assumption plainly 
could not apply to (he company 
which had acquired the original 
shares, the assumption that H 
there was no disposal or ac- 
quisiiion could not have been 
intended to apply lo that com-

pony. 

its effect was limited to ibc 
tax consequences of the trans- 
action for the person who bad 
exchanged holdings. There was 
no logic in applying it to the 
person who had acquired the 
original shares and subjecting 
him to the inelegant hypothesis 
of having made an acquisition 
without a disposal- 

The policy of paragraph ?(l> 
was to recognise that for trans- 
actions between members of a 
group, ihc legal theory that each 
company was a separate entity* 
did not accord with economic 
reality. Il gave effect lo that 
policy by. broadly speaking, 
ignoring transactions within die 
group. ■ ■ 

.All the provisions concerned 
were directed to neutralising the 
tax effect of transactions which 
were disposals in legal theory 
but not in real life. 

It would be strange , if the 
combination of the provisions 
was to give lav significance to a 
transaction (the acquisition of 
lhc’shares in the three compa- 
nies by Tnpmakers from Old W> 
which it was the policy of each 
of them separateh to ignore. 

Pul another w-ay. if the policy 
of paragraph 2(1) was to 
neutralise the tax consequence 
of transfers of assets within a 
group, why should it make a 
difference whether such a trans- 
fer w>as in exchange for an issue 
of shares or fur some other 
consideration? 

The policy of the various 
provisions supported the con- 
clusion reached on the basis of 
the language and the concepts 
employed. The Crown’s appeal 
was dismissed.

instant provision was stronger, 
since it actually went to ibc 
power to make die regulations at 
all rather than to the steps w hreb 
might be required to be taken to 
make them effective. 

Turning to the heart of the. . 
case- the real question was 
whether the booklet was. pan 
and parcel of the draft regula- 
lions which had lobe laid before 
Parliament. 

The plain fact was that the 
booklet was not part of the , 
statutory instrument. It was 
expressly referred to bv para- 
graph 5 of Schedule I A as an 
external document, but it was ’ 
not in ordinary language or. m 
fact a schedule nor was it port of 
me instrument. The draft 
regulations themselves made il ' 
vicar that the booklet was ex- 
ternal.

SOLICITOR 

SOUTHAMPTON 

. upwards of £16 t 000 p^. 

Following a dissolution of partnership, a sole 
practitioner (aged 40), operating from substan- 
tial premises in a very pleasant part of 
Southampton, is looking for a solicitor with 
whom he can share his he^vy work load. 

Current fee earnings more than justify this 
appointment 

The work will be a mix of divorce, litigation 
and conveyancing. There is a small and effec- 
tive back-up team. 

Candidates should be aged around thirty. They 
should be ambitious and therefore looking for 
partnership opportunities within two years. 

As a first step applicants, not necessarily with 
local connections, should write to Mr David 
Whately (who himself qualified as a Solicitor) 
with details of their careers. The reference to 
quote is No. 63).

-If you believe there is no such thins as 
the ideal home, the Daily Mail Ideal 
Home exhibition at Earls Court which 
opened yesterday will try its annual 
persuasion that there is — or are, 
' because the village that occupies a large 
1 part of the arena contains seven houses 
which attempt to live up to the name. 

Whether they will still be in such 
perfect condition when the show closes 
on March 3L after thousands of visitors 
have trooped through their every bed- 
room and kitchen, is another matter. 

They have to be built weir to 
withstand that onslaught, with their 
upper floors strengthened and doorways 
sometimes widened to all for the traffic. 
Otherwise they are built brick on brick 
exactly as on a permanent site except for 
plumbing and foundation w ork. ^ 

The builders, given their continual 
anguished cry about land prices, must 
also be grate ftil that they are paying for 
the floor space rather than the land site. 
Ax least, sheltered from bad building 
weather outside, the houses can be built 
quickly as they have to be with a limit of 
17 working days from start to finish. 

Three of the homes are built into a 
complex by Wimpey, befitting one of 
the largest volume builders, two are by 
the makers of house “kits”, one by 
Davis Build Developments for the 
ASPP/Calor Gas “house of the year”, 
and a one-off Future House 2000 
sponsored by the magazine What 
House?

One of the themes emphasized in 
most of the houses is that of energy 
saving, a useful matter which drew 
comment from Peter Walker, Secretary 
of State, who attended the press 
preview. He said he was surprised that 
someone buying a car would always ask 
its miles per gallon, while the same 
person buying a house rarely asked 
about energy costs. 

Mr Walker believed that people 
would become more energy-conscious 
in the next twaor three years as building 
societies and builders took more inter- 
est. He added: “Energy saving will 
become an increasing factor in selling 
homes, and I would like to see the 
introduction of a grading system for 
houses bared on their energy efficiency’. 

Thefuture House 3000 appropriatdy 


saving. It has a 3 5 ft- high conservatory, 
claimed to be the largest conservatory 
built in the UK, which is designed to 
face south and trap solar energy for use 
throughout the house. 

Otherwise it is fairly conventionally 
designed, explained on the grounds that 
most people like traditional design. But 
inside it has an array of electronic 
gadgets including a remote-controlled 
wall unit incorporating a television, 
video recorder and drinks section, and 
can receive television from all over 
Europe by satellite. 

It also emphasizes the likely increase 
in leisure in the home, and has a 
gymnasium equipped with all sorts of 
torture machines. Downstairs a small 
robot glides around, just missing people 
and cupboards, but not giving great 
confidence that it could cook and serve 
a meal for the family without spilling 
something. 

Valhalla Homes build up-market 
homes to designs originally drawn up 
for the Canadian market, and use 
materials such as Canadian kiln-dried 
spruce and Philippine mahogany in the 
timber-framed construction ana design. 
Being built for the Canadian climate, 
they have a high level of insulation and 
are considerably more thermally effi- 
cient than building regulations demand 
here. 

The V alhal la Hazdton house pro- 
vides three or four bedrooms from the 
flexible kit, which costs £23,300. The kit 
indudes all the components of die 
limber frame and insluaxion, bat does 
not include the external cladding, cost 
of building or cost of land. Adding the 
costs together, the house would actually 
cost £59.000 ~ lo build — and" that 


further £15,000 to £45,000 to the cost 
depending on location and stze of plot. 
(Details: 0908 640628.) . _ 

The other house m kit form is one of 
the Heritage Cottage range from Potton. 
It is a new design, a four-bedroom 
fami ly home built on eariy J7tb-centory 
des igns , with exposed solid tixnbeT posts 
and beams, large inglenook fireplace, 
dormer windows and sloping ceilings. It 
has an o pen-gal leried staircase — and a 
conservatory, for which the house is 
designed, although it is not a st a nda rd 
part of the package. # • 

It is a further indication, nevertheless, 
'of the increasing popularity of conserva- 
tories, which appear in three of the show 
houses and are displayed by several 
firms exhibiting. 


Authentic Tudor details 
around tke door 


This house, the Waresley. is L700 
square feet costs £39,000 for the kit and' 
would cost about £50,000 in all Potion 
(details from 0767 260348) say that the 
total cost of their houses is about £30 a 
sq. ft. — and their kits range from 1085 
to 3,750 sq.ft. 

Davis Build, operating in the south of 
England, have build a Tudor-style, five- 
bedroom ed house, with “authentic" 
period detail on the jettied first floor, 
twin dormer windows and exposed 
beams in the ceiling. Several of these 
houses are being built at Oxshott, 
Surrey, and will cost about £200,000, 
while their range of houses and flats in 
London and the South-East cost ho* 
tween £45,000 and £225,000.

Sitting tenants are bats 


When the auctioneer begins to take bids 
for Nettleton Mill, near Castle Combe, 
Wiltshire, on March 19, there could be 
more than a squeak of interest in the 
-proceedings. 

For the mill, to be auctioned at the 
Francis Hotel, Bath, is in a pictu res que 
spot close to the village, it is the sort of 
dilapidated property which is ready for 
conversion, and there is an ad ded 
ingredient — bats. 

Tire little forty creatures have already 
caused a good deal of interest in 
Hampshire because of their presence in. 
a canal tunnel which is waiting to be 
cleared, and now their cousins in 
Wiltshire are about to make their 
presence felt. 

For in the eaves of the coach house is 
a nursery roost of a colony of rare 
Daubenton bats and of the even rarer 
Lesser Horseshore bats. Both aperies are 
protected under Schedule 5 of the Wild 
life and Countryside Act 1981 and are 
. important enough to warrant the atten- 
tion of the Nature Conservancy Coun- 
cil, which has issued detailed 
instr uctions on the provisions that must 
be mad* for them when the buildings 
are converted. 

Nettleton Mill and its buildings are to 
be sold in two lots. The mill has more 
than half an acre of land, and frontage 
and fishing rights of about 200ft on the 
trout stream, Broadmead Brook. The 
min buddings, in which the bats have 
made their home, are being offered with 
a two-acre paddock. Both tire min and 
buddings are in a poor stale of repair. 


but have great potential, according to 
the agents Tilley and Noad of 
Chippenham, and each has planning 
permission for use as a single dwelling. 

The beautifully sited property was 
recently used for filming the TV series 
of Robin Hood, and the agents expect a 
sum between £40,000 and £50,000 for 
the mill and £50,000-£60,000 for the 
buildings and paddock. Whether that 
means the bats are worth £10,000 is 
another matter. 

In its report, the Nature Conservancy 
Council reported that the mill was in an 
extremely poor stare of repair and did 
not seem to be of significance to the 
local bat population. That might suggest 
that the bats were discriminating, but 
one Greater Horseshoe bat was found in 
the mill's lean-to. 

But the bam building, where the 
Daubenton bats roost between the inner 
and outer layers of roofing felt, is a more 
serious matter. Although they are there 
only during the breeding season from 
June to September, restrictions have 
been laid down to ensure that the new 
roof is suitable for them, and the 
conversion must not be carried out 
during the breeding season. Similar 
conditions apply to the Lesser Horse- 
shoe bats, to ensure that they can 
remain in their habitat — and not even 
be disturbed by the building work. 

The agents do not specify “bat-lover 
wanted for derelict buildings of great 
potentiaT, but it would dearly help.

• MR PYE (Channel 4, 

ItLOOpm), Donald Churchffl's 
dramatization of the Mervyn 
Peake novel. Is wail dona. I am 
not sure it is wea enough 
done to warrant a second 
screening of episode one 
four days after the first, but 
Channel 4 obviously believes 
that this combination of writer 
Peake and actor Derek 
JacobK as the man whose 
mission is to awaken the 
Island of Sark to the reforming 
power of goodness)is 
momentous enough to Justify the 
second helping. Tune wifi ten 
What is dear is that thanks to Mr 
Pye and his messianic 
mteston^reen and rocky Sark 
wiU from now on be known 
for something other than its 
Dame, and Jersey and 
Guernsey wffl have to look to 
their iaurets as hoBday 


CHOiOS. ■ 


isiands-Something else thatls 
abundantly dear about Mr 
Pye is that its quaint hero rs not 
wholly saintly. " Goodness 
me, she has tegs like pistons, "he 
says as he watches the 
waspish Miss Dredger (Judy 
Parfitft striding away from 
Mm after their first prickly 
encounter.! was not totally 
convinced by Mr Pye's effortless 
■drawing of me wasp's sting, 
but given the miraculous nature 
of Peake's fantastic 
imagination, perhaps nothing 
ought to be ruled out 
•ROBOTS: TAKING TOE 
BISCUIT (BBC 1, 9.30pm) 
reveals the limitations of 
man-made aids. They can pour 
cups of coffee, add lumps of 
sugar, and stir.But ask them to 


retch you a cftooolste biscuit, 
and like a churlish child, they will 
start playing chess instead. 
Sheila Hayman made her film 
well over a year ago, but it 
was never screened. Nothing to 
do with recalcitrant robotics 
at the BBC, however.

Joseph denounces NUT as 
ralons squabble over deal 

By Lucy Hodges. Education Correspondent 


As teachers’ unions squab- 
bled furiously among them- 
selves yesterday about their 
pay deal. Sir Keith Joseph. 
Secretary of State for Educa- 
tion and Science, said the 
refusal of the largest union to 
support the settlement was 
"utterly indefensible". 

Addressing the House of 
Commons at Question Time, 
he said; 'The behaviour of the 
National Union of Teachers 
does seem to be absolutely 
appalling. It is evidently will- 
ing that its members should 
take money that has been 
negotiated 'by other unions 
ana employers, yet continue 
with the disruption." 

He also pointed out that the 
NUT was urging its members 
to stand in the way of reform 
talks which were so patently 
needed. Sir Keith's comments 
came as the unions were 
meeting in the teachers' side of 
the CLEA/ST negotiating 
committee, which deals with 
conditions of service and also 
has to ratify the settlement. 

Their talks were drawn-out 
and acrimonious, with the 
NUT ranged against the four 

k 


smaller unions which had 
agreed the deal. After moving 
a” motion that the settlement 
be rejected, the NUT claimed 
that it had a voting majority- 
on the teachers' side of 
CLEA/ST. with nine votes to 
the other unions' eight. 

The four unions — the 
National Association of 
Schoolmasters/Union of 
Women Teachers, the Assis- 
tant Masters and Mistresses 
.Association, the National .As- 
sociation of Head Teachers 
and the Secondary Heads 
Association — disagreed. 

There is confusion about 
the unions' relative voting 
strengths on CLEA/ST be- 
cause it has no formal consti- 
tution and has never taken 
votes before. 

The biggest leaching union 
said it was opposing the deal 
because it did not want to see 
conditions of service traded 
for pay. “short-term gains for 
long-term loss*’. The other 
unions maintain that it is the . 
only way to gel a decent salary ■ 
boost, and that they can be 
trusted not to surrender im- 
portant conditions.

After a long battle the 
smaller unions proposed that 
no vote be taken but that the 
views of each association be 
recorded. Mr Bob Richardson, 
the NUT chairman, rejected 
this, whereupon the smaller 
unions refused to take part in 
the vote. The NUT registered 
nine votes, and the rest nil. 

The vote changes nothing 
because at the foil meeting of 
CLEA/ST tomorrow the man- 
agement representatives will 
vote with the smaller unions. 

• Scots bold out: Scottish 
teachers will continue their 
19-month campaign for an 
independent pay review in 
spite of the settlement in 
England. Mr Fred Forrester, 
organizing secretary of the 
Educational Institute of Scot- 
land, the largest Scottish 
teachers' union, said yesterday 
(Ronald Faux writes). 

They would be seeking a 
two-year settlement, hoping to 
use the £125 million the 
Government has put on the 
negotiating table.

Maundy 

recipients 

warned 

By Alan Hamilton 

Buckingham Palace has is- 
sued its regatar warning to the 
pensioners who will receive 
Maundy money from the 
Queen to beware of mscropn- 
lons coin dealers. 

In past years dealers have 
been waiting at the church 
door at the end of the Maundy 
Thursday service and have 
pressured the elderly recipi- 
ents into parting with their 
coins for wnnimal amounts to 
make a quick profit by resell- 
ing them to collectors. 

At this year's service, in 
Chichester Cathedral on 
March 27, 60 men and 60 
women will each receive 60p in 
the specially-minted denomi- 
nations of lp, 2p, 3p and 4p 
silver coins. The number of 
recipients and the amount' 
reflects the Queen's age. 

Recipients are chosen for 
outstanding service to church 
and community in whichever 

diocese the service is held. The 
ceremony is a relic of the 
tradition of the sovereign dis- 
tributing alms to the poor. 


The Swedish Prime Minis- 
ter, Mr Of of Palme, was killed 
by a professional gunman who 
had a getaway car waiting, the 
Stockholm police chief Mr 
Hans Holmer claimed this last 
night as he offered a reward of 
£50,000 for information lead- 
ing to the assassin's arrest. 

Mr Holmer said police al- 
ready had details of the car's 
registration number, but rhata 
witness was not sure of all the 
letters and figures. Intensive 
checks were being made. 

He said the tact that the 
assassin used a weapon that 
could kill quickly and shot 
from behind gave him all the 
haflmaila of a professional. 

There was also the extreme- 
ly clever way the killer had 
shadowed Mr Palme and his 
wife Lisbet from their home to 
a cinema before be shot the 
Prime Minister. 

“It will take us time to solve 
this crime and we need peace 
and quiet,'’ said Mr Holmer. 

Because of this there would 
be no further press confer- 
ences until further notice. “I 
will come back when I have

he said. 

Mr Holmer rejected local 
press criticism that the police 
had not acted sufficiently 
quickly or efficiently enough. 

He said a police officer 
alerted by a taxi driver who 
had seen the assassin escape in 
the getaway car had arrived 
shortly afterwards. “We came 
close to catching the 
murderer." 

He said police had arrived 
at the scene within minutes of 
being alerted. 

But he admitted that only 
60 police could be mobilized 
in the first hour and only a ISO 
later on Saturday morning and 
that the first police car to 
arrive at the scene had been 
alerted by a private person. 

He said it had not been 
practical to seal off the entire 
city after the assassination. 

Mr Holmer said 600 people 
had been interrogated, of 
whom about 100 bad given 
important information. 

He hoped the reward of half

Letter from Moscow 


Kremlin war on 
everyday graft 


Having only last summer 
launched an ambitious crack- 
down on vodka (without 
ending the curious custom oi 
selling it in bottles without 
replaceable caps), Mr Mikhail 
Gorbachov has used the oc- 
casion of the 27th Commu- 
nist Party Congress to declare 
war on something almost as 
universal in ’the Soviet Union 
— corruption. 

Descn bed by some as an 
endemic condition of com- 
munist societies and by oth- 
ers, who recall the widespread 

corruption which flourished 
here under the tears, as 
endemic in the Russian char- 
acter, plain, old-fashioned 
graft is still very much a part 
of ordinary life for many 
Soviet citizens.. 

As any resident of Moscow, 

is well aware, it is hopelessly 
optimistic to expect a handy- 
man like a plumber or electri- 
cian to perform his job 
properly without a small 
‘'incentive” — such as a bottle 
of the now-scarce vodka — to 
help matters along. 

Similarly for 101 other 
everyday activities, ranging 
from securing 3 ticket to the 
Bolshoi to getting above aver- 
age treatment from the free 

ine health service, a gift (or 
bribe) is often the only guar- 
antee of securing the quality 
of goods or service required. 

Unlike the Middle East or 
parts of Africa, where similar 
backhand payments are de 
rigeur for finding a way 
through red tape and where 
grimy notes frequently 
change hands inside pass- 
ports and the like — things are 
often done more genteelly in 
the Soviet Union. Carefully- 
wrapped parcels are delivered 
to the person in need of 
persuasion on national holi- 
days when there is a general 
tradition of present-giving 
and prying eyes can be avoid- 
ed. 

Further up the scale, two 
recent examples — some of 
the scores published monthly 
by an official press now under 
Kremlin orders to step up its 
vigilance — help explain the 
magnitude of foe task which 
the Kremlin has set itself. 

One. which occurred in the 
town of Yelets, 300 miles 
south of Moscow, was de- 


scribed by officials astyprea t 
of a practice widespread 
throughout the Camay. It 
arose because mes* Sow 
citizens prefer to. tajft 
teeth capped in ffrfd- nihc r 
than the standanwssuesiam- 
less steel, but distribu tion o f 
the precious meial is strictly 
limited. Thus a th riving c ot- 
tage industry had glows up 
among corrupt doewts pre- 
pared to self tire accessary 
sprovka (forms) to show that 
the patient tjnalificd 
At Polyclinic Number One 
in Yelets, doctors were charg- 
ing the equivalent ofxIOO for 


the profits with a ringindud 
ing a dentist and a nurse. 
Vigilance by the focri corrup- 
tion squad uncovered The 
ring (whose cfioHS, appropri- 
ately enough, were e aa sted 
by a worker i n a loca l sweet 
factory) and sentences ran g ed 
from four to six years apieee. 

A more serious fate await- 
ed two senior official s at the 

state abattoir m the Kiigizam 

town of Totanalcsteya. who 
were both shot late last year 
after being convicted ofm as- 
ternzinding an i n g eni ous 
scheme for doaUfro wMig 
collective farms which deliv- 
ered their animals for slaugh- 
ter. The ringleaders netted a 
staggering £1.1 milliwi'’ . 

According to senior Krem- 
lin sources, the newcampajgn 
will also be aimed at Made 
marketeers who proliferate m 
every main population: cen- 
tre. and whose current top- 
selling fines indude Sony. 
Walkmans, video recorders, 
digital watches and, as a 
collector's item, cassettes of 
foe film Rambo with a 
dubbed-over commentary in 
Russian. ‘ 

Since details of the new 
anti-corruption drive were 
outlined to foreign corre- 
spondents bv Mr Gddar 
Aliyev, one of tbe only mem- 
bers of the Politburo id ever 
bold a press conference on 
domestic issues, a number of 
emboldened members xrf 
Moscow's 8, 000-strong for- 
eign community have de- 
clared their intention of 
boycotting this per tin ent 
form of low-tewd graft.
