The Prime Minister is ready 
to fight faerfoird-term election 
on a radical Conservative 
m anife sto which will defy the 
growing Cabinet and party- 
demands for a retreat on 
vintage Thatcherism. 

Mrs Margaret Thatcher’s 
closest political allies are con- 
fident that while foe wifi li sten

colleagues, she will not heed 
any of the expected calls for 
caution, consensus or consoli- 
dation. 

Cabinet-level sources say 
that the Prime Minister has 
the p ower to outface her party 
critics, no matter how senior, 
because they have no special 
status in the ^manifesto-mak- 
ing process. 

While Cabinet ministers 
may be asked to contribute 
manifesto policy submissions, 
those who attempt to water 
down Mrs Thatcher's own 
radical ideas wifi find that die 
is determined to accept' no 
compromise. 

The same authoritative 
sources also say that the 
manifesto will not be a matter 
for discussion by Cabinet, and 
that there will therefore be no 
fonimforanyfightback by the 
"'wets’’ and, “consolidators” 
who now make up about half 
of Mrs Thatcher's Cabinet 
team. 

The danger fer the Govern- 
ment is that Labour and the 
Alliance would attempt -to 
make political capital not only 
from the hard-line manifesto, 
but from dissent within the

Conservative ranks. However, 
-those ranks tend to close in 
elections. 

Downing Street sources 
have confirmed that the Prime 
Minister wants to attack the 
problems of education with a 
credit system which would 
enable parents to choose be- 
tween the state and private 


schools are also being consid- 
ered for the inner cities. 

' A greater element of choice 
is also expected to be spread to 
the health service, and a more 
adventurous training pro- 
gramme is bemg considored 
for the young and long-term 
unemployed: 

Some Conservative minis , 
ters are expressing concern at 
hints of Mrs Thatcher’s deter- 
mination to drive back further 
foefrontiere of the stale. There 
is talk of a resistance move- 
ment. The senior sources say, 
however, that the great beamy

that there xs no written proce- 
dure for making a manifesto. 
The reins of power are held by 
the party leader and dose

Foreign Secretary, was put in

control of Mr Norman Tebhit, 

Mrs Thatcher’s friends be? 
if eve that she has one positive 
chance of re-election for a 
third term - an exciting and 
radical programme which, 
they say, will appeal to the 
voters' basic demand for more 
freedom, lower taxation, and 
greater choice in education, 
health, housing and pensions. 

That view is underlined by 
their analysis of recent elec- 
tion history. They aigue that 
Labour governments have 
been elected only by default 
when the Macmillan adminis- 
tration ran out of steam after 
1959 and when the Heath 
administration failed to live 
up to its radical 1970 election 
promises. 

It is said that the electorate 
is hostile towards controls and 
regulations, and that Mrs 
Thatcher has appealed suc- 
cessfully to that fundamental 
political instinct with the abo- 
lition of pay and price curbs, 
foreign exchange, bank lend- 
ing and hire purchase restric- 
tions; privatization; sale of 
couhcfl bouses; and the break- 
ing of restrictive trade union 
practices.

Violence goes

Johannesburg— Violence in 
South Africa’s black town- 
ships showed no signs of 
ebbiogal the weekend, despite 
Fridays lifting of the emer- 
gency (Michael Hornsby 
writes). 

Police said a black ghi was 
killed when they used shot- 
guns to disperse a crowd in the

when a black policeman shot 
at a mob. 

A woman was killed by

Fans give 
police clue 
to rapists 

By Michael Horsaell 

Detectives hunting tire gang 
who raped a vicar’s danghter 
were last night sifting through 
foe naines of 3JH10 members of ! 
the pop group MarilKon’s fan 
dub after contacting tire band 
in Canada. 

A spider’s web tattoo and 
the initials MAR ou the hands 
of two of tile three rapists who 
struck at the west London 
vicarage on Thursday, hate 
established a fink with 
Mansion strange^; 

far! " ' ' 

The group has a fan dnb 
and magazine both called 
“The Web” — a symbol which 
was first adopted by Munition 
after the release of a song of 
that tide. 

Police contacted the group 
in Calgary, tire latest stop in a 
torn of Canada and tire United 
States. 

Lead singer, Fish, aged 27, 
from Edinburgh, immediately 
consented to a police request 
for the fan dnb membership 
lists. 

Most of fans are girls aged 
15 to 18 and this should help 
police track down foe gang of 
three men, two of whom are in 
their late twenties or early 
thirties. 

Mr John Aroison, the 
soup's manager, said from 
Calgary: “The hud is abso- 
lutely horrified by the possi - 
bilhy that the rapists may 
have a connection with them. 

“The police have said that

Hopes fade for 
superpowers’ 
summit meeting 

From Christopher Walker, Moscow 


A farther serious obstacle in 
foe way of an agreement on a 
date for the second superpower 
summit has been imposed by 
Washington’s decision to limit 
foe number of Soviet diplo- 
mats working at die United 
Nations in New York and 
Moscow's furious public reac- 
tion to the move. 

The new bitterness between 
the Kremlin and the White 
after Mr 

MikhaBGdrtnchov, the Sovi- 
et leader, twice hinted to the 
Communist Party congress 
that the Soviet Urnon might 
back out of this year's meeting 
ft it failed to secure a prior 
indication from Washington 
that an agreement on arms 
control could materialize. 

Senior Western diplomats 
said hero yesterday that tire 
row over the alleged Soviet 
spies at foe UN had increased 
foe already burgeoning dis- 
trust between the superpow- 
ers. 

Tass news agency described 
die US request for foe number 
of Soviet diplomats to be cut 
from 275 to 170 by 1988 and 
the accompanying call for cuts 
in Soviet personnel at foe 
Byelorussian and Ukrainian 
missions as an “nncerenoai- 
oas demand” whkh had been 
made on “far-fetched and 
groundless pretexts” in order 
to undermine the UN. 

Yesterday foe agency re- 
turned to foe offensive with a 
six-page story in which it 
cfaimed that foe US had failed 
to act against well-known 
perpetrators of “acts of 
terrorism 1 ’ against foreign 
missions to the UN. 

This was seen as part of a 
Kremlin tactic to use the 
exp ulsi on demand as ammuni- 
tion to step up its campaign for 
a switch in the venae of the 
UN headquarters. 


“A massive terrorist cam- 
paign agaast the missions of 
the socialist countries, as well 
as progressive, developing 
states and national liberation 
movements to the UN has 
been under way with 
Washington's connivance for 
many years,” the agency al- 
leged. “Bomb blasts and acts 
of arson at buildings bousing 
diplomatic missions, acts of 
imddbm • sad heoligaaisre, 
i ntimidation and' threats of 

Summit donbts 5 

I wading article 13 

physical violence — such have 
been the manifestations of this 
hostile campaign.” 

The agency also quoted foe 
permanent Bulgarian repre- 
sentative at the UN, Mr Boris 
Isvektov, as claiming that 
Washington's move accorded 
with “foe general line of the 
US directed towards a perma- 
nent complication of foe inter- 
national situation.” 

• NEW YORK: The size of 
foe Soviet mission to the 
United Nations has been a 
long-standing target of suspi- 
cion from tire UN diplomatic 
community and the American 
request for cuts in foe delega- 
tion was expected to be widely 
applanded privately (Zoriana 
Pysariwsky writes). 

Senor Javier Perez de 
Cuellar, the UN Secretary- 
General has handed the mat- 
ter over to his legal counsel for 
study, but UN sources said it 
was unlikely that a definitive 
position would be token on 
what was largely a bilateral 
matter between tire United 
States and the Soviet Union. 
They said that even if foe 
Secrotary-General should op- 
pose foe US action there was 
little, if anything, he could do 
about it.

Beirut kidnappings shock France 


From Diana Geddes 
Paris. 

France has been thrown 
into a state of shock by the 
seizing of four more French- 
men by pro-Iranian extremists 
. in Beirut, and by the news that 
Islamic Jihad is threatening to 
kill another of the original 
four hostages after the report- 
ed “execution” last week of M 
Michel Seurat, a sociologist 
Just one week before the 
French general elections, the 
Prime Minister and two other 
ministers have interrupted 
their campaigns in order to 


keep in close touch with 
developments. 

Already, four emissaries 
have been sent to Beirut, 
Damascus, and Teheran, to 
try to find out whether M 
Seurat has been killed and to 
gather information on thefate 
of four members of a televi- 
sion crew seized in Beirut on 
Saturday. 

Islamic Jihad threatened on 
Saturday to kill another of the 
original four hostages unless 
France got back from Baghdad 
within seven days, the two 
pro-Iranian Iraqis expelled by 


Paris for suspected involve- 
ment in bomb attacks. 

Paris originally claimed foe 
police had committed “no 
Fault” in expelling the two. M 
Pierre Joxe, Minister for the 
Interior, has called, however, 
for an immediate revision of 
all expulsion proceduresand 
Mme Joelle Kaufman n, wife 
of one of the original hostages, 
said that President Mitterrand 
had described the expulsion of 
tbc two Iraqis as “a horrible 
story, a total blunder”, when 
she saw him.

Tough security is expected 
in Northern Ireland tomorrow 
as both governments signal 
their determination to back 
the Anglo-Irish agreement by 
holding foe fourth meeting of 
the joint ministerial confer- 
ence in foe province. 

Mr Peter Barry, the Irish 
Republic's Minister for For- 
eign Affairs, is likely to fly to 
Stormont for discussions with 
Mr Tom King, Secretary of 
State for Northern Ireland, in 
which cross-border security, 
justice and foe position of the 
Irish language will be high on 
foe agenda. 

The meeting will enrage 
Unionist politicians who have 
been demanding first foe 
scrapping, and now the sus- 
pension, of the agreement so 
that a round-table conference 
can be held aimed at obtaining 
devolved government. 

But the determination of 
foe governments to press 
ahead with the deal after foe 
“loyalist” protests will make it 
more difficult for Unionist 
politicians, particularly Offi- 
cial Unionists, who are anx- 
ious for resumed talks with the 
Prime Minister. 

Although Mrs Thatcher is 
understood to be concerned 
officials misjudged the extent 
of Unionist opposition, she is 
in no mood to retreat, particu- 
larly after foe intimidation 
and violence which accompa- 
nied last Monday's 24-hour 
industrial stoppage. Officials 
believe that to give any sign of 
weakness to Unionists at foe 
moment would be a mistake. 

However, it is clear that the 
work of the conference, while 


not in suspension, ts progress- 
ing at a very slow pace. 

Mr King and Mr Barry- put 
on a public display of friend- 
ship. but it is understood their 
relationship is not particularly 
harmonious. 

There is little in the deal so 
far which Unionists can point 
to as being a direct result of 
Dublin involvement in the 

A further indication of foe 
Government’s hardline posi- 
tion towards foe Unionists is 
expected after Easter when 
ministers meet to decide on foe 
future of foe Northern Ireland 
Assembly. 

The threat is that the As- 
sembly nil] be closed down 
until all-party talks are start- 
ed, and that new elections will 
only be held in October if Mr 
John Home, of the Social 
Democratic and Labour Part}’, 
is satisfied that progress has 
been made to the pointthst he 
can take part in the Assembly. 

north and, in spite of pressure 
from officials, Mr King is not 
prepared to repeal the Flags 
and Emblems Act, which ef- 
fectively bans the tricolour. 

Some Unionists believe that 
the lack of progress by the 
conference could allow them 
to restart discussions with the 
Prime Minister. 

Security forces are prepared 
for street disorder during the 
traditional marching season 
and further attempts by elect- 
ed politicians to undermine 
the morale of foe Royal Ulster 
Constabulary.

Welsh liberals yesterday 
avoided a policy dash with tire 
Social Democrats over cruise 

Their annual conference at

Labour clash expected on surcharges 


Teachers to cover Call for 


for colleagues 

By Lucy Hodges, Education Correspondent 


All members o t, the Assis- 
tant Masters and Mistresses 
Association, have been told to 
return to covering for absent 
colleagues as they did before 
(he teachers' pay dispute be- 
gin in February 1985. 

/ The advice has been sent 
as a direct result of the 
authority employers' in- 
sistence at fast week’s talks on 
the pay settlement that teach- 
ers return to the status qno. It 
corrects the union's earlier 
advice that members were not 
contractually required to cov- 
er for a colleague who was off 
sick for more than one day. 

As part of the pay settle- 
ment, the employers made the 
five smaller unions involved 
in the deal agree to return to 
normal duties so that the long- 
term talks under Sir John 
Wood could progress in an 
atmosphere of calm. 

Some local authorities pro- 
vide supply cover after the 
first day of an absence, others 
after the third day, and some 
not until the fifth day. 


The association has made it 
clear that that advice does not 
compromise its position in the 
forthcoming talks under Sir 
John Wood on pay structure 
and conditions of service. 

AMMA approved a paper at 
its executive meeting at the 
weekend on conditions of 
^service which will be present- 
ed to the association's annual 
conference next month, h says 
it is important for teachers to 
negotiate a new contract to 
ensure that they do not contin- 
ue to be exploited. 

“The executive committee 
believes that it is wholly 
unreasonable for local educa- 
tion authorities, government 
and the public to continue to 
rely on teachers to sustain an 
under-resourced education 
service from an unlimited 
personal commitment of time, 
effort and energy”, it said. 

The inquiry into teachers' 
pay and conditions has begun 
under “the three wise men” 
appointed by Acas and will 
lake six months. 


Essay-writing inquiry 


Agencies which write stu- 

■ dent essays for a fee are to be 
investigated by the Depart- 

■ ment of Education and Sri- 

■ ence after a report in The 
Sunday Times on the London 
Essay Service. 

It charges £8 a page for 250 
typewritten words and will 
tackle any subject. The essays 
’ are claimed to be written by a 
i panel of academics, teachers 
• and writers. 

Most prefer to remain anon- 
; ymous. but one of the ghosi- 
: writers is Mr John Sincfair- 


Whiteley. a Canadian econ- 
omics graduate who sold 
essays in Toronto. 

The agency is based above 
an estate agent’s office in 
King’s Cross, London, and 
customers pay in cash. 

About 50 undergraduates 
are already reported to be 
using its services, and London 
University administrators are 
concerned that they are break- 
ing university regulations. 

Paying fellow students to 
write essays is well known at 
Oxford and Cambridge.

Burnham 

reform 

By Onr Education 
Correspondent 

The smallest teachers' 
anion, the Professional Asso- 
ciation of Teachers, which has 
a no-strike policy, has churned 
a dramatic increase in mem- 
bership over the past 15 


sitfon of the Barn ham negoti- 
ating committee reviewed 

again. 

Mr Peter Dawson, general 
secretary, said his member- 
ship bad grown from 28,000 
members at the beginning of 
last year to 42,000. He 
claimed the union should have 
two seats on the Bonham 
committee instead of one. The 
committee's composition was 
examined eight months ago by 
Sir Keith Joseph, Secretary of 
State for Education and Sci- 
ence- 

Mr Dawson said: “In aB 
justice we should have another 
seat. We know we are attract- 
ing members from the Nation- 
al Union of Teachers and our 
growth in Scotland is even 
faster.” 

Mr Dawson attributed the 
48 per cent rise in membership 
to moderate teachers, particu- 
larly in rural primary 
schools, who felt alienated by 
toe strike. 

Mr Dawson said the compo- 
sition of the Burnham commit- 
tee should be reviewed 
annually 

The moderate Assistant 
Masters and Mistresses Asso- 
ciation. the third biggest orga- 
nization for teachers, was also 
claiming a growth in member- 
ship. It said numbers had rises 
by 10,000 on the 95,000 
claimed at the end of 1984. 

But Mr Peter Smith, associ- 
ation assistant general secre- 
tary, had not asked for another 
review of the Burnham com- 
mittee, nor did be believe in 
annual reviews. He said: “A 
review which reflected short- 
term and uncertain movement 
might be undemocratic. It is 
better done on a regular basis, 
say, every two or three years.” 

A substantial shake-out in 
teacher onion membership is 
expected as a result of the 1985 
pay dispute, with the militaiits 
beading in the direction of the 
216,000-strong National 
Union of Teachers and the 
moderates congregating with 
AMMA and the PAT. 

The second biggest union, 
the National Association of 
Schoolmasters/Union of 
Women Teachers, which has 
117,000 members, is thought to 
be in danger of losing num- 
bers. 

It was largely responsible 
for settling the 1985 pay 
dispute. 


Mr Neil Kinnock will block 
all left-wing Labour attempts 
to indemnify Liverpool and 
Lambeth councillors who are 
facing surcharges of £200,000. 

A new left-right confronta- 
I tion is expected this week over 
the leadership derision, but 
Mr Kinnock is determined to 
resist demands for Labour to 
go into the next election with a 
commitment to give retro- 
spective compensation to 
rebel councillors. 

An appeal fund, which is 
being proposed by Dr John 
Cunningham, the party’s envi- 
ronment spokesman, will allo- 
cate funds to those councillors 
who are faced with bankrupt- 
cy and it is thought that 
Liverpool's Militants will 
pointedly be given the lowest 
priority in the voluntary bail- 
out. 

A meeting of the Labour 


By Anthony Bevins, Political Correspondent 


national executive's local gov- 
ernment committee will dis- 
cuss toe appeal plan this 
morning, and left-wingers are 
expected to dash with the 
leadership on indemnification 
and a refusal to offer finance 
for any further legal action. 

The disagreement will be 
underlined by a dispute over 
fast year’s party conference 
resolution on indemnifica- 
tion, which was passed on a 
show of hands. 

Conference resolutions can 
become enshrined in party 
policy only if they are carried 
on a card vote with a two- 
thirds majority, and it is 
understood that Mr Kinnock 
has made sure that any votes 
at this year’s party conference 
will fail to achieve that major- 
ity. 

Mr David Blunkett, leader 
of Sheffield council and a 


member of the party exec- 
utive's local government com- 
mittee, said on the BBC 
television programme This 
Week, Next Week programme 
yesterday that last year’s con- 
ference resolution had pledged 
action to lift “the iniquity” of 
surcharge and disqualifica- 
tion. 

He added, however “You 
can't retrospectively lift dis- 
qualification. You would have 
to deal with toe question of 
whether you compensated 
people who had been made 
bankrupt and I think what 
Neil Kinnock and others have 
been saying over the fast few 
days is that toe real chance 
now is to try and prevent 
people being made bankrupt. 

“There's absolutely no 
point in retrospectively trying 
to lift something that has 
destroyed the livelihoods and 


the well-being of ordinary 
individuals. Our task must be 
to try and prevent that now ” 

Mr Dave Nellist, toe Mili- 
tant-supporting MP for Cov- 
entry South East, said in the 
same programme that the 
Conservative Government 
had introduced retrospective 
legislation for people who had 
lost their jobs because of trade 
union closed shops. 

“Now if it's good enough for 
toe Tories to support and 
defend their class when it 
comes to toe struggle, then 
nothing short of that for the 
Labour leadership is going to 
be good enough for the major- 
ity of the rank-and-file in the 
party,” he said. 

Mr Nellist said that there 
were another 220 Labour 
councillors in danger of sur- 
charge. 


Lower rates for some Londoners 


BvCnlm H ptim. 

Shifts in government grant 
and the abolition of the Great- 
er London Council at the end 
of this month will mean most 
London householders paying 
lower rates from April 1. 

■ Reduced bills will also arise, 
in some of the high-spending. 
Labour-controlled inner Lon- 
don boroughs, from their deci- 
sion not to fight this year's rate 
capping limits. 

Changes in the calculation 
of government grant an- 
nounced at the end of fast 
year, switched about £160 
million from shire counties to 
the capital. The new system of 
assessing local councils’ needs 
means that the concentration 
of social deprivation in the 
inner city merits more central 
government cash support 

In principle, the transfer of 
the extra grant Much bor- 
oughs receive to run services 
from the GLC, after abolition, 
changes nothing. But in prac- 
tice the boroughs will get 
about £60 million more than 
the GLC would have done, 
had it survived. 


I Detective in 
Shergar case 
is dismissed 

From Richard Ford 
Belfast 

A detective in the Irish 
Republic's police force has 
been dismissed after an inqui- 
ry into the disappearance of a 
ransom payment handed 
over for the missing race 
horse, Shergar. 

Detective Garda Martin 
Kenirons, from Co Clare, was 
dismissed after an internal 
discipline inquiry found that 
he had breached sections of 
the force's 1971 regulations. 

He was dismissed after the 
inquiry into the disappearance 
of Irt 80.000, which went 
missing from the boot of a car 
in Co Clare, in July 1983. The 
money was paid by Mr Stan 
Cosgrave, Shergar’s vet who 
gave it to a local man. who 
then claimed it had been 
stolen from the boot of his car. 

Shergar, the winner of both 
the Epsom Derby and Irish 
Deity in 1981, was stolen 
from the Agha Khan's 
I Ballymany stud in Co Kildare 
I in February 1983. 


Together, the effects are that 
16 of the 20 boroughs which 
have already set a rate, have 
cut their bills. The largest 
reduction is in Kensington 
and Chelsea, which already 
has one of the lowest pence in 
the pound rates in London, 
although its property values 
are high. Rates there are being 
slashed by 30.1 per cent, to 
98.9 pence in the pound, 
which win mean the average 
ho u se h old e r saving £224 on 



Mr Kenneth Baker, who 
promised fairer share-out 


ra tea of £746 last year. 

L Even ‘In Camden, a re- 
nowned high-spender which is 
ratecapped, and received no 
government grant at all be- 
cause it has been so heavily 
penalized, the increase will be 
only 0.2 per cent, to 227.95 
pence in the pound. Brent, 
which is under narrow Con- 
servative control and a prime 
target for Labour in the local 
council elections being held in 
London in May, has opted for 
a zero rate rise, as has toe 
•Conservative-controlled City 
of London. 

The rate-capped councils’ 
derision to abide by toe law 
this year means a huge bonus 
for ratepayers in Hackney 
(l 1-2 per cent cut). Islington 
(18 per cent cut), Haringey 
(9.8 per cent cut), Southwark 
(6.9 per cent cut), and Lam- 
beth (2.9 per cent cut). The 
other two rate-capped coun- 
cils have settled for small 
increases within their limits: 
Greenwich rates will go up by 
0.9 per cent, and Lewisham’s 
by 6.8 per cent.

Directors optimistic 
over business outlook 

By David Smith, Economics Correspondent 


Company directors are opti- 
mistic about business and 
employment prospects, but 
are dissatisfied with toe 
Government's performance, 
according to the Institute of 
Directors' business opinion 
survey published yesterday. 

The survey also concludes 
that most directors believe 
that toe Chancellor should 
persevere with tax cuts in the 
Budget in spite of toe sharp 
drop in oil prices. 

The survey finds that 74 per 
cent of directors have in- 
creased their volume of busi- 
ness during toe past three 
months. That is the highest 
proportion since the survey, 
published every two months, 
began in October 1983. 

Employment prospects ap- 
pear to have improved consid- 
erably since the fast survey, 
with 50 per cent of directors 
expecting to take on staff in 
toe next six months. 

Sir John Hoskyns, the 
institute's director-general. 


said: “These results give 
grounds for optimism that 
February’s better unemploy- 
ment figures will marie the 
beginning of a better job-, 
creation trend.” 

But 55 per cent of those 
taking part in the survey are 
dissatisfied with the Govern- 
ment. Most, 91 per cent, want 
toe Government to introduce 
further trade union reform. 
• Britain taxes the poor more 
heavily than most other in- 
dustrialized countries, with 
one in five taxpayers on less 
than £5,000 a year, according 
to The Great Tax Divide, a 
report published today by the 
Low Pay Unit. 

The report says that toe 
number caught in toe poverty 
trap has increased five-fold 
since 1979 Low paid taxpay- 
ers had received between them 
only 4 percent of income tax 
cuts awarded by the present 
government.

Mr Tebbit also accused Mr

politics that you should play

Mr Michael Kilby, toe Con- 
servative MEP for Notting- 


ham and a former GM 
employee, said on the BBC 
radio World this Weekend 
yesterday that be had misgiv- 
ings about the GM bid for BL 
because under their global 
strategy Britain bad been put

ing so heavily that then-

toe early 1990s. Their anxi- 
.eties, however, may be party 
relieved by the announcement 
fast week by Mr Kenneth 
Baker, the Secretary of State 
for toe Environment, that 
most London boroughs will 
benefit from a share-out of toe 
cash forfeited by overspenders 
in other parts of toe country. 

The second largest cut so far 
agreed is I6.S per cent, in 
Hammersmith and Fulham, 
where the ruling Conserva- 
tives, who are narrowly keep- 
ing - control with Alliance 
support, fear that the May 
elections could easily bring 
Labour bade into power. 

The other boroughs cutting 
rates are mostly Conservative: 
Bexley by 1 .8 percent, Harrow 
by 22 per cent. Havering by 1

“The symbol of the web was

together”, Mr Arnisou said. 

More than 780 calls have 
been monitored at the inridest 
centre in Hanwell where the 
police are basing their search 
for the three men. 

A senior officer said about 
400 pieces of information 
about toe identity, where-

I Tax union , 
votes for 
political 
fund 

The tax men became toe 
first Civil Service union to 
vote for toe establishment ofa 
political fond under toe 
Government’s trade union 
laws. 

Inland Revenue Staffs Fed- 
eration members were a re- 
sounding 8!.8per cent, or 
39.776 to 8,862 in favour of a 
fund. 

In an unusually high poll, 

87.4 per cent of toe union’s 
55,000 membership took part, 
in spite of government at- 
tempts to persuade Civil Ser- 
vants that it was unnecessary 
for them to have a political 
fund. 

The result, announced yes- 
terday, is another blow for the 
Government, which believed 
originally that toe . require- 
ment to hold a ballot on 
political firnds could affect 
Labour Party revenue. ,. 

Since the Act came into 
force, however, 34 unions 
have decided to retain their 
political fond and two, includ- 
ing the federation, have voted 
to create one. None has voted 
again st- 

Trade Union officials were 
jubilant at the result. 

The IRSF said that toe 
Government gave Civil Ser- 
vants only limited time to 
vote after being threatened 
with legal action. 

The Government’s attitude 
was that political foods were 
unnecessary for Civil Servant 
because they threatened their 
neutrality.

circuit judge claims 


Some .Lord Chanceflore 
lavejnisuscd-thfiir power and 

the** have been instances of 
political nepotism, Judge 
Pickles said in an attack onfoe 
system for appointing and 
. oisniisMg judges. . - 

Judge Pickles, who recently 
launched a personal rampa;^ 
for the right of judges to 
out in the media, 'said that die 
present Lord Chancellor, Lord 
Haflsham of St Maivtebone, 
had advisers of ability and 
integrity, and had those quali- 
ties himseU, 

but that others had appoint- 
ed “their pals”. 

Speaking to solicitors at the 
conference of the British Legal 
Association in Cheltenham at 
the weekend, he criticized 
what he said was the Lord 
Chancellors final say on ap- 
pointments awl dismissals of 
judges, QCs, recorders, magis- 
trates and chairmen of tribu- 
nals, 

u He need not give reasems; 
there is ho appeaL This cannot 
be right.” 

The judge, who lias come 
dose to dismissal over press 
articles; called for a board or 
committee to decide whether 
a circuit judge should be 
dismisseriL He also a 
plea for more judges to be 
drawn from all ranks of soci- 
ety. 


We judges are looked oh 
by many oF our customers in 
. an “us and them” way. They 
.think- we'. 'are upper ! middle ' 
class with privileged back- 
grounds. They are right for the 
most pan." . . 

Judge Pickles also said ihere 
was. a strong case for a 
Freedom of Information Act 
as in the United Stases of 
America. “In Great Britain we 
are grand on public ceremony, 
but the decisions which affect 
ordinary people’s Eves are 
often made behind dosed 
doors. The searching light of

He also called for a relax- 
ation in the laws oflibeL In the 
United States; he said, it was

to muzzle the media by bring-

-Speaking, on the theme 
“Power Corrupts”, he added 
that one bulwark against the 
misuse of power was a strong 
and independent legal profes- 
sion. 

The judge was making the 
latest of several public pro- 
nouncements in recent weeks 
which started with an article 
in a national newspaper ex- 
plaining why he believed it 
was important for judges to be 
able to contribute to debate on 
matters of public interest. 


It also gave “chapter and |

Judges are not allowed to 
take part in public debate 
under the 'so-called Kilmuir 
rules and Judge Pickles be- 
lieves it is time that these were 
reformed. ; 

Judge Pickles called for 
“imagination and 
reasonableness” from magis- 
trates, judges, the police and 
public officials when dealing 
with people, particularly those 
who. were anti-authority. 
There were now those who 
openly defied judges and the 
law itself he satd- 

“Such people, trade union- 
ists orCND supporters, good- 
hearted people m every other 
respect, defied the law and it 
was important forjudges to try 
to understand their points of 
view” and “convince them 
that we have acted 
reasonably”. 

There was a time to be 
topgh, he added, but by 
“adopting a tough line from 
the start a judge can make of a 
customer an enemy of the law 
and of authority in general”.

French may join fight

By Derek Harris 
- Industrial Editor • 
Fierce rivalry to attract

hotels is likely to begin in the 
summer as the Granada 
Group enters a market domi- 
nated by Trusthouse Forte. 
But there are signs of furt her 
competition from French ho- 
tel companies. 

The aim is provide accom- 
modation for. about half the 
costs ' charged by a typical 
; chain hotel, d e al in g mainly 
with businessmen. . 

Granada is planning a chain 

of Granada Lodges, with 20 to 
30 hotels being set up feuiy 
quickly to achieve national 
impact- The first two, opening 
this summer, will together cost 
around £2 mill ion. 


Trusthouse Forte, Britain’s 
biggest bold company, has 
opened two Little CbefLodges

‘French speciabsts in this de-

Heathrow Airport, costing £5 
below the going two-star rate,

Eoston railway station in July 
next year. 

The low-cost hotels are 
aimed at businessmen making 
overnight stays who do not

Plan for ‘super’ music academy 


Education Correspondent 

A plan to turn tee Royal 
Academy of Music into a 
“super academy” to produce 
fewer, but belter musicians, is 
being considered by Sir Keith 
Joseph, Secretary of State for 
Education and Science. 

The other music colleges are 
protesting strongly at the im- 
plicit threatto relegate them to 
second status, and have "told 


Sir Keith that a single centre of 
excellence would be bad for 
British music. A decision is 
expected within weeks. 

The Royal Academy pro- 
poses to reduce its student 
numbers from 625 to 480, and 
to set aside 150 places for 
gifted soloists who. it main- 
tains, are forced to leave 
Britain to seek the intensive 
training they need abroad. 

Last week die academy 
launched an appeal for private 


funding for the scheme, de- 
scribed as “the Pursuit of 
Excellence,” in which it asked 
for £4.5 million. There is some 
dispute in music education 
circles about whether Britain 
is falling behind other coun- 
tries and the reasons for this. 

-Sir David Lumsden, the 
academy's principal says that 
British trusts spend thousands 
of pounds each year on schol- 
arships to fund students to go , 
overseas. 


Rises of up to 28 per cent, 
some as high as £30 and £40 a 
week, have been won by 
unions for women members 
by using changes in the equal 
pay legislation. 

Breakthroughs are reported 
by the TUC in a document, 
published today, teat will be 
discussed at the TUC 
women's conference in Leices- 
ter later this week. 

it is expected that the 
successes will encourage thou- 
sands more women to fight for 
a better deal. 

Hundreds of claims will go 
before industrial tribunals in 
the coming months, while, as 
in the past, unions hope that 
the threat of such action will 
be enough to make some 
employers concede an equal 
pay case. 

Among successes reported 
are a 28 per cent increase for 
draughtswomen and £17 a 
week more for two industrial 
nurses who claimed equal 
value with labourers, packere 
and lorry drivers. 

Cases pending could bring 
£30 a week more for women 
laboratory technicians and 
£20 for women packers. 

The report shows that the 
Association of Professional, 
Executive, Oerical and Com- 
puter Staff has 24 equal-value 
claims before tribunals, with 

Personal aid 
for mentally 
confused 

A new law comes into force 
today which ensures that if a 
person becomes mentally ill or 
confused, his affairs will be in 
the hands of someone he has 
chosen himself. 

The Enduring Powers of 
Attorney Act, 1985, is intend- 
ed to provide peace of mind 
for those, particularly the 
elderly, who fear that if they 
become mentally unwell or 
confused, outsiders will take 
control of their lives. 

Under tee Act, an individ- 
ual can appoint someone to 
act for him if he becomes 
mentally incapable. 

All that is needed to estab- 
lish an enduring power of 
attorney is for the people 
involved to complete a stan- 
dard form, available from the 
Court of Protection, which 
until now had to intervene in 
almost every case. 


another 114 covering nine 
companies being prepared. 
Miss Ada Maddocks, chair- 
woman of the TUC women’s 
advisory committee, said: 
“The TUC is delighted at 
these gains for women. 
Unions are recognizing what j 
can be achieved for women! 
with careful and expert use of; 
tee legislation." 

• Company directors’ sala- 
ries rose by an average of 10 
per cent in the six months to 
February, compared with the 
10.5 per cent average for tee 
previous six months (our In- 
dustrial Editor writes). 

That emerged from tee 
latest Charterhouse study of 
senior management salaries , ; 
published today. It showed - 
that a quarter of directors won 
increases of 12 per cent or 
less, with another quarter 
gening 12.3 per cent or more. 

If bonus as well as salary is 
taken into account the earn- 
ings of the typical chairman or 
chief executive was up by 
about 11.1 per cent, showing 
no change from last October’s 
survey. 

Out Of more than 1,000 
companies studied. 61 per 
cent had executive share op-

Prostitute 
‘tells off 
little sister 

A young prostitute has rep- 
rimanded her eight-year^ild 
stepsister for telling police of 
their involvement in prostitu- 
tion. 

Police were told yesterday 
by tee child's mother that the 
16-year-old prostitute had 
telephoned the girl at the 
Wolverhampton home where 
she has been placed in care. 

The mother said: “When 1 
talked to my daughter yester- 
day she told me her stepsister 
had telephoned and told her 
off for telling the police all 
about it.” The girl aged eight 
was put in temporary care on 
Friday after Wolverhampton 
Juvenile Court was told she 
had been seen getting into 
men’s cars with prostitutes. 

The lather said his 16-year- 
old daughter from his first 
marriage had appeared before 
local magistrates for a number 
of offences of soliciting.

Vandals to New towns’ guide 
help repair f or inner cities 

Udllld^C By Christopher War-man, Property Correspondent

Correspondent 

Offenders are working as 
part of a home security service 
set up by Merseyside Proba- 
tion Service. Victims of crime 
whose homes have been bro- 
ken into or vandalized can 
seek their help with that of a 
carpenter. 

The home security service, 
with the co-operation of two 
victim support co-ordinators, 
also employed by the proba- 
tion service, provides an 
emergency repair service for 
elderly, single-parent or disad- 
vantaged victims. 

The service has a small 
workforce of offenders on 
probation, referred by their 
supervising officers and select- 
ed for their suitability. 

When the victims are ini- 
tially visited to see about the 
repair work, they are asked 
whether they would be willing 
to have an offender working 
there. If permission is not 
given, the work is done by the 
carpenter on his own. 

Most victims give permis- 
sion and are left feeling more 
secure when the work is 
cqmpIeiecL

is 'that people who have done 
bad can do good. One 17-year-

A central urban develop- 
ment corporation responsible 
for co-ordinating action to 
regenerate inner cities is rec- 
ommended in a report to the 
Government by the chairmen 
of the new towns. 

It would be set up on the 
lines of the development cor- 
porations for the new towns 
and for London’s docklands 
and Merseyside which have 
proved successful. 

The report, prepared by 
Telford Development Corpo- 
ration. is being siudied by 
ministers at the Department 
of the Environment. 

It claims that in spite of the 
urban programme, the main 
plank of official regeneration 
policy, there is continuing 
decline. It is one of multiple 
deprivation: economic, physi- 
cal and social. The report calls 


for a package spanning all 
aspects to tackle it

Putting forward the case for

initially be involved in identi- 
fying suitable locations.

Barnyard 
look is 
popular 
at school 

By Charles Knevitt 
Architecture Correspondent 

Pupils of Deflates school at 
Pdenfidd m Hampshire are 
rebuilding a barn from 
Bonhams farm, near Alton, 
Hampshire, to provide a sta- 
ble, forge, tool-house and | 
kitchen with a baking oven for 
their outdoor work project in 
the school grornds. 

It is the second ham to be 
dismantled, transported and 
rebuilt at the scfaooL The first, 
Sotberington barn, dating 
from the eighteenth century, 
came from Selborne, Hamp- 
shire, and Is used as a large 
dry working area, cartbonse 
ami strong room. 

Manual labour has been 
part of the enniadam at the 
school since it was founded. 
The Outdoor Work Depart- 
ment has been growing and 
selling thousands of trees and 
fruit since 1975. 

Mr John Rogers, the master 
in charge of the department, 
said that the barnyard should 
be completed this summer, 
when it will also be used by 
members of the local conserva- 
tion volunteers. 

The project is one of 33 
short-listed entries m The 
Timei /RIBA Community En- 
terprise Scheme.. The awards 
will be presented by its patron, 
the FkinceofWite, in Jane. 

The school is within £1,000 
of paying for the barnyard, 
which is costing £23^)00. Of 
that the children have raised 
about a third. Old Bedafians 
and parents have given a third. 


Security police have 
stepped up their guard on the 
Swedish royal family after a 
series of death threats. 

The First Marshal of the 
Royal Court, Mr Lennart 
Ahren, said the threats had 
come in anonymous tele- 
phone calls to the palace in 
Stockholm. Police had been 
informed immediately, he 
said. 

King Cart Gustaf was re- 
ported to be "shaken” by the 
threats, which are being taken 
with added seriousness by the 
security police after the assas- 
sination on February 28 of the 
Swedish Prime Minister, Mr 
Otof Palme. 

The King, Queen Silvia, 
and the three royal children. 
Crown Princess Victoria, aged 
eight, Prince Carl Philip, aged 
five, and Princess Madeleine, 
aged two, were now receiving 
added protection, said a police 
spokesman. 

Meanwhile, police hunting 
Mr Palme’s kilter, whom they 
describe as “a professional 
murderer", appealed for an 
anonymous letter-writer who 
may have seen the assassin to 
come forward. 

The Stockholm police chief 
Mr Hans Holmer, said the 
letter had been sent to police 
soon after Mr Palme was 
murdered. The writer claimed 
to have passed the spot where 
Mr Palme was killed at the 
time of the murder and had 
made “certain observations". 
Mr Holmer said he could 


reveal no more at this stage. 

Sweden will observe one 
minute of silence today to 
honour the memory of Mr 
Palme. At noon (1 1.00 GMT) 
all t rains, underground trains, 
buses, taxis and - it is 
expected — most private cars 
will halL Work in factories 
and shops will stop, and in 
schools and day-care centres 
children and teachers will 
stand in silent tribute to Mr 
Palme. 

The minute’s silence -will be 
led from Parliament, where 
MPs will also hear a pro- 
gramme of solemn music 
played by members of the 
Stockholm Philharmonic Or- 
chestra, a speech by the Speak- 
er, Mr Ingemund Bengtsson, 
in tribute to Mr Palme, and 
the singing of the Negro 
spiritual “Deep River" by the 
Stockholm Cathedral choir. 

Poems will be read' by the 
actor Jan-Olof Stiandberg, 
and tributes to Mr Palme will 
be paid by opposition leaders 
with whom he could be scath- 
ingly critical in parliamentary 
debates. 

Tomorrow Mr Ingvar 
Carlsson win be presented 
formally to Parliament as Mr 
Palme's successor by Mr 
Bengtsson. On Wednesday he 
will be sworn in. 

Preparations for Mr 
Palme’s state funeral on Satur- 
day are continuing. More than 
1,000 police will be on duty to

London, but the summit 
which would have taken place 
in Brussels this month has

yesterday as the nation sought 
to untangle the chain of events 
that led to the tragedy. 

"Who gave - the order?”, 
asked Da^Wadf. the second- 
largest national newspaper, cm 
the front page of its weekend 
edition. Since Wednesday, 
when the avalanche buried 31 
men, . all members of the

gineering Corps, U has become 
clear that the dangers of 
entering the remote valley of 
Vaffdaleo, . near the port of

were well known. . 

“Anchor Express", which 
was lo have been one of Natp’s 
largest winter exercises, in- 
volving 20,000 troops, was 
called off after the tragedy. 

Some of the roost damning 
public testimony has come 
from Lieutenant Agnar

Guard, who has known 
Vaffdalen all his life. ..

said. 

The lieutenant takes vigor-

Stabbing ends quiet g 
of poll campaign 


... 


From Diana Geddes, Paris 


The hitherto remarkably 
peaceful French election cam- 
paign erupted into violence at 
the weekend when a Socialist 
supporter was stabbed to 
death by a National Front 
supporter after he had taken 
down an NF poster from an 
official campaign hoarding re- 
served for the Socialists. 

The incident occurred just 
after 9.30 pm on Friday at 
Croissy-sur-Seine, in the 
Yvelynes, outside Paris, 
where M Michel Rocard, for- 
mer Aqaculture Minister and 
self-declared candidate for the 
presidential elections, heads 
the Socialist list 

Philippe Brocard, aged 35, a 
Rocard supporter, had agreed 
to help two Socialist militants 
to put up posters. 

Finding one covered by 
posters of the extreme-right 
National Front, they were 
attempting to tear them off 
when three cars, with their 
lights off suddenly emerged 
from the darkness and six men 
jumped out 

“They were wearing a kind 
of paramilitary uniform, com- 
plete with leather jackets and 
crewcut hair," M Jean-Jac- 
ques Gaucher, a Socialist mu- 
nicipal councillor, said. “A 
row immediately broke out. 
They said to me: “So, you 
don t like our posters? 1 


“Then everything happened 
very quickly. We found our- 
selves on the ground, being 
kicked and beaten up. Sud- 
denly I heard a scream. Phi- 
lippe had been stabbed He 
was bleeding hard I tried to 
pull him away, but they 
continued to (tick him." 

By the time M Brocard had 
been taken lo hospital, be was 
dead 

Sergeant Rfigis Devaux, 
aged 23, a soldier in the 5th 
Infantry Regiment, has been 
charged with manslaughter 
and is in police custody. 

Both the National Front 
federation in the Yvelynes, 
and M Jean-Marie Le Pen, the 
National Front leader, initial- 
ly denied knowing anything 
about Sergeant Devaux. M Le 
Pen later condemned the kill- 
ing of “any party militant, 
even if he is an adversary”. 

Nearly 2,000 people, led by 
M Rocard marched in silence 
through Croissy yesterday and 
M Rocard laid a wreath of 
pink carnations on the spot, 
stained with blood, where M 
Brocard died, while M 
Gaucher stuck a portrait of M 
Brocard over a National Front 
poster portraying M Le Pen. 

M Laurent Fabius, the 
Prime Minister, called for 
every party to abstain from 
violence.

French elections: Part 1 


Underestimated system comes of age Silver lining too late for Socialists 


I Whatever the Westland af- 
fair may have done to the 
Conservative Parts', 11 has 
been a tonic for the select 
committee system in the 
House of Commons. Sudden- 
ly. backbenchers who have 
lived obscure lives up and 
down the interminable com- 
mittee room corridor, which 
runs almost the whole length 
of the Palace of Westminster, 
are walking with a new spring 
in their step; their role in 
exercising the authority of the 
legislature over the executive 
has at Iasi been vindicated 
. Yet the powers the defence 
committee has used to sum- 
mon mandarins and confiden- 
tial drafts has existed from 
time immemorial and it re- 
mains uncertain whether the 
committee will, in practice, 
succeed in interrogating staff 
from the Prime Minister's 
private office. 

Most probably a compro- 
mise will be reached some way 
short of absolute victory or 
absolute rebuff. In theory a 
government might seem to 
have little to fear from the 
insatiable curiosity of select 


More of the real action at Westminster has been taking 
place riot in the chamber of the Commons but in its se- 
lect comm i tees, where the pressure has been so extreme 
in the pus: fnv a \ svy tha: even the impeccable 
iknauJcrs of Hansard have fallen behind in recording 
it. In the first of a two-part series George HiU looks at 
the growing self-confidence of the select committees. 


committees, which derive 
their powers ultimately from 
the House of Commons, 
where the government has a 
majority, and whose member- 
ship broadly reflects the politi- 
cal balance of forces in the 
Commons. 

In practice, the necessity for 
a government to give reasons 
to the House for rejecting a 
request could embarrass it as 
much as anything which 
might come out in committee. 
As Sir Anthony Kershaw, 
chairman of the foreign affairs 
committee, points out, if the 
Government dees refuse to 
allow the Civil Servants to 
appear before the defence 
committee in face of a firm 
demand, it will look like a 
cover-up. 

The constitutional position 


as to the powers of commit- 
tees is fairly dear. They have a 
genera] power to choose their 
areas of inquiry and to sum- 
mon persons and papers, al- 
though they have no sanction 
against witnesses who refuse 
to answer. Civil Servants are 
required by their own codes to 
follow their ministers' instruc- 
tions. 

When the defence commit- 
tee asked to see Mr Bernard 
Ingham and his Civil Service 
colleagues. Mrs Thatcher re- 
plied carefully that a sum- 
mons to private secretaries 
and personal staff (as distinct 
from advisers on broad poli- 
cy) raised major implications 
which would “need to be 
thought about". 

The committees’ powers are 
limited. Of the 275 repons 


they have made since 1979, 
only four have been formally 
debated in the House. Some 
committee members are con- 
vinced that the effective role 
of the committees has been 
immeasurably strengthened 
by the events of recent weeks, 
and that Whitehall has been 
taken by surprise by them. 

Ministers, too, may have 
underestimated the resources 
of the committee system. The 
new pattern of departmental 
committees has grows up 
since 1979. and. as yet, rela- 
tively few members of either 
front bench have served in 
them lo any extent (Mr 
Kenneth Baker, Secretary of 
State for the Environment, is 
an exception). The motives 
and attitudes of committee 
members, as well as their 
powers, are relatively unfamil- 
iar to them. Referring the 
matter to a committee might, 
in the past, have seemed a 
comfortable option for taking 
the heat off it for a few weeks. 
Ministers are not likely to 
make that misjudgement 
again. 

Tomorrow: Two breeds of MP 


“If the elections g® against 
the Socialists, it mil be be- 
cause of unemployment," 
President Mitterrand Admit- 
ted in a recent teterisfon 
Interview. 

He described the 37 per cent 
rise in the number on* of work 
in the past five years as his 
Govenunent’s main failure. 

The Socialists came to pow- 
er in May, 1981, promising to 
reduce unemployment Here 
were then 1-7 million anem- 
pteyed: now there are 1A 
million. 

The Opposition insists that 
die real ntunber is more than 
three rmOhm, if those taken off 
the register by such 
“cosmetic” measures as early 
retirement and youth commu- 
nity work are indiided. 

AU the polls show feat 
unemployment is by for the 
most important preoccupation 
today. Yet it has failed to 
become a hot election issue. 

This is largely because the 
prospect m post-election 

“cohabitation” of a right-mug 
government with a left-wing 
President has dominated the 
campaign, but also because the 
Opposition knows that, in the

the Socialists. It is certainly 
not making any promises. 

Unemptojnsent aside, the 
Socialists like to. claim Hw* 
tbeir economic record is one of 
their strong points. Indeed, 
they have recently based their 
campaign on the idea that it 
would be foolish to throw out 
the present Government just 
wheu it is beginning to reap 
what it has sown and nurtured 
over the previous five yean. 

Inflation, they point out, is 
below S per cent, its lowest 
level for 17 years. Industrial 
investment is picking «p» Bad- 
ness profits are rising. Interest 
rates are falling - Price amt 
exchange controls are being 
removed. The number of days 
lost through strikes is the 
lowest since 1946. 

Taxes have been cut for the 
first tune in more than a 
decade. Real wages are going 
op. Unemployment, although 
unacceptably high, has never- 



thetess fallen sfightiy over the 
past year. The balance of 
payments is in smphB and the 
franc is stable. 

You see, the Socialists say. 
the economy is weB on toe 
road to recovery. Not at all, the 
Opposition replies. Having 
once had oik of the highest 
growth rates of any indastthti- 
cced country, France now has 
one of foe lowest In the past 
five years the economy has 
grown by an average of 1.1 per 
cent a year, compared with 2.7 

per ceat over the previous tire 
years. 

Total investment is 8 per

Industrial prodoction is stag-

piles on 




From Michael Binyon, W ashingto n 

President Reagan stepped 
up his efforts over the week- 
end to secure 5100 million in- 
aid for- the Nicaraguan Contra 
rebels, saying the vote by 
Congress Oh March 19 would 
be of "supreme importance", 
and insisting that only his 
policy “can keep Gshtral 
America free without commit- 
tit® American troops” 

“The days of pretending 
Nicaragua is an innocent land 
of peace wishing only to live in 
harmony with its people and 
neighbours have long passed”, 

Mr Reagan said in his weekly 
radio address "Nicaragua is a 
country held captive by a cruel 
clique of deeply committed 
Communists at war with God 
and man. How can Congress 
ignore this storm gathering so 
dose to our homeland?” 

He challenged Congress to 
“stand up for freedom” and 
said the Contras needed US 
military aid because, without 
power, diplomacy would be 
without leverage. 

This week the President will 
hold a series of private meet- 
ings to lobby members of a 
sceptical Congress. He intends 
to emphasize his commitment 
to negotiation and the diplo- 
matic process, and will insist 


that Mr Philip Habib, his new 
Special envoy to the region, 
win only be able to do his job 
if the President has bipartisan 
support at home. 

Senator Christopher Dodd 
of Connecticut said yesterday, 
however “This Administra- 
tion wants to overthrow the 
Sandimsta Government It 
says it just wants to bring 
them to the negotiating table. 
Absolutely no one believes 
that.” 

Another Democrat Repre- 
sentative Michael Barnes, 
said: “If we go down this road 
of increasing military confron- 
tation with Nicaragua, it leads 
almost inevitably to the com- 
mitment of US troops.” He 
also strongly attacked the 
White House for what he 
called "the worst rhetoric 
we've heard in America since 
the. 1950s". 

To secure the aid, Mr 
Reagan must win over at least 
65 members from both parties 
in the House of Representa- 
tives. He will make a nation- 
wide television address on 
Sunday, in an attempt to 
influence the vote three days 
later.

Chill in US-Soviet relations 

UN cuts add to 
summit doubts 

From Michael Biny on, Washington 


The enforced cut in Soviet 
diplomats at the United Na- 
tions marks the latest in a 
series of incidents that have 
rapidly chilled Soviet-Ameri- 
can relations and casts further 
doubts over Mr Mikhail 
Gorbachov's proposed sum- 
mit visit here later this year. 

The United States masts 
the cutback should not dam- 
age overall relations with 
Moscow or add to the contro- 
versy now surrounding the 
summit, and that it is doing 
nothing to set back relations. 
It Tried die resumption^ soon

Union and the US and the

is taking a more combative 
line towards Moscow than H 
did just after the summit. 

The Americans have been 
angered by what they see as 
Mr Gorbachov’s reneging on 
his commitment to come-here 
in June or July, and reject any 
attempt to link his visit with 
progress in arms controL Last 
week Mr Reagan said bluntly

not come, he would not go to

Waldheim 
hits at 
accusers 

Vienna (Reuter) — The 
former Secretary-General of 
the United Nations, Dr Kurt 
Waldheim, denied allegations 
that he had a Nazi past and 
accused The New York Times 
of spreading the 10951 gro- 
tesque stories about him. 

"I was neither a member of 
the Brownshirts (SA) nor of 
the Student Federation;” he 
paid in an interview on Aristri- 
mi television. - 

“This is a most deliberate 
smear campaign against me, 
of a kind unprecefomied in 
Austria’s postwar history," he 
said emotionally.. “AD these 
allegations are untrue.” . 

Last Tuesday The Noe Yak 
Times indirectly quoted Dr 
Waldheim - presidential can- 
didate for Austria's conserva- 
tive opposition People’s Party 
- as admitting membershipof 
the two Nazi groups- The 
paper also said he was at- 
tached to a German unit that 
fought brutal campaigns 
against Yugoslav partisans 
aid deported Greek Jews. 

In the interview, Dr Wald- 
heim said: “I must say, once

erent talk from the White 
House, there were signs over 
foe weekend that the Adminis- 
tration was ready to compro- 
mise. Under one plan, 
proposed by Senator James 
Sasser of Tennessee, military 
aid for the rebels would be 
frozen for six months while 
efforts are made to start talks. 


If Nicaragua failed 10 nego- 
tiate, the money would be 
released. On Saturday Mr 
Sasser met Mr Elliott Abrams, 
the Assistant Secretary of 
State for Inter-American Af- 
fairs, to discuss his proposal 
He said Mr Abrams expressed 
"reservations” about foe de- 
lay, but did not reject the plan 
outright. 

However, he said on televi- 
sion yesterday: “The Presi- 
dent is not looking for 
compromise at this point. He 
is looking for 218 votes in the 
House." 

The stakes are now high, 
and some senior officials fear 
that the Administration's 
rhetoric has been too harsh 
and that an obstinate Con- 
gress win not pass direct aid to 
the Contras without a com- 
promise. 


US policy 
opposed 
in region 

From John Carlin 
Mexico City 

Latin American opposition 
to President Reagan’s policies 
in Central America has never 
been more united. 

The Governments of eight 
Latin American nations, in- 
cluding the three most power- 
ful, Mexico, Brazil and 
Argentina, declared this 
month foat there was an 
"imperative need” for an end 
to foreign support for insur- 
gencies in Central America, a 
pointed reference 10 Mr 
Reagan’s proposal for aid to 
the Contras. 

Both US and Honduran 
officials in Honduras, which 
has long been the base camp 
for foe bulk of foe Contra 
forces, have said in recent 
interviews that the chances of 
the Contras overthrowing 
Nicaragua’s Sandinista Gov- 
ernment are virtually nil. 
Questions have even been 
raised about foe Contras' will- 
ingness to fight 

The appointment of Mr 
Philip Habib as Washington’s 
special envoy has not im- 
pressed Nicaraguan officials. 
They see his expected visit to 
foe region this week as an 
effort to bolster a proposal by 
President Duarte of El Salva- 
dor, apparently inspired by his 
US backers, for simultaneous 
peace talks between the gov- 
ernments and rebels ofbofo El 
Salvador and Nicaragua.

Lisbon — Dr Mario Soares

There are 500 words in this 
advertisement. 

Each one is worth reading very, 
veiy carefully. Because they develop 
an argument which, when followed 
through to its logical conclusion, 
could lead the way to the formation 
of a new company with an annual 
turnover well over £6,000,000,000. 
(Half of which comes from related 
businesses.) 

The two companies are United 
Biscuits and Imperial. 

United Biscuits are front- 
runners in the food market and 
expanding fast in leisure. 

Imperial are leaders in the food, 


of America. 

One of those brands is 
Pizzaland whose restaurant opening 
programme will be accelerated. 

On the subject of overseas 
markets, United’s growing presence 
in North America, Hong Kong, 

Japan and the Third World will open 
new doors for Imperial. Much as 
their world mar kets will be 
introduced to us.

leisure and tobacco markets. (See? 
Common ground already.) 

By joining forces, our combined 
turnover, based on 1985 sales, will be 
well above £6 billion. 

One and one is more than two. 

From this point on, the words 
grow progressively more valuable. 

If our combination stood only 
for a pooling of sales, our argument 
would be strong. 

What makes it incontrovertible 
and so potentially fruitful, is how 
those common resources could be 
exploited. 

Imperial presently control over 
6,000 pubs, restaurants and shops. 

Ready markets for United 
Biscuits’ crisps, snacks, confectionery, 
pizzas and burgers. 

Simply by coming together we 
could substantially increase our 
penetration into these outlets. 

Two vans can’t live as cheaply 
as one. 

All those pubs and restaurants, 
as well as a nationwide network 
of tobacconists, need regular 
replenishment. 

By bringing together our distri- 
bution and wholesale operations, we 
anticipate an impressive reduction 
in overheads. 

Imperial's strong cash flow 
will provide a rich source of funds 
to invest back into our brands both 
at home and in the United States 


Imperial, withRoss and Y>ungs, 
are strong in supermarkets. We’re 
both growing fast in the catering trade. 

Together; we can consolidate 
our successes and create a giant 
bigger than the jolly green one. 

Even more resourceful. 

As you read this, there’s a team 
of people at United Biscuits working 
hard on new product development. 
Our record testifies to their successes 
in the past. 

Round the comer, at Imperial, 
another team is busy on their new 
product development. 

It’s easy to imagine how the 
pooling of those resources could 
benefit both companies. 

Ask the other half. 

It’s not just United who want 
Imperial. 

It’s Imperial who want United. 

Both of us know just how well 
suited we are to each other 

Just howpowerful a force we can 
be together. 

However many words others 
may give you, in the long term they 
just can’t add up to the same value. 

And in the long run, it’s not 
words that count. 

But the value behind them. ...

Control of 
Teamsters 
is urged 

From Christopher Thomas 
New York 


The Mafia's influence over 
the International Brotherhood 
of Teamsters, America's larg- 
est and arguably most politi- 
cally influential union, is so 
pervasive that the White 
House should consider remov- 
ing union pincers and placing 
onion activities under court 
supervision, a presidential 
commission has recommend- 
ed. 

The scandal -ridden union, 
whose wealth and organiza- 
tional muscle always play a 
key role in presidential and 
other big elections, has been 
firmly under the influence of 
organized crime since the 
1950s. the report declares. 

"The systematic use of 
trusteeships by courts may be 
necessary to prevent organized 
crime from continuing to do 
business as usual," it says, 
although it falls short of 
recommending direct moves 
against the union leadership. 

The report which is being 
Studied by the White House, 
was drawn np by the 
President's Commission on 
Organized Crime. It accuses 
Mr Jackie Presser, president 
of the Teamsters, of having an 
“extensive record of organized 
crime association". 

It says that business trans- 
actions in which he earned 
more than Si million while a 
Teamsters* official in Cleve- 
land, Ohio, in the 1970s — 
mainly involving investment in 
a theatre — were “highly 
suspect" and had been re-

Shia Muslim campaign against France 


-OVERSEAS NEWS 


sms TV 


crew 


From Our Correspondent 
Beirut 

pie underground war of 
L e banon's Shia Muslim ex- 
tremists against France took a 
»ew turn yesterday when the 
obscure Islamic Jihad organi- 
zation claimed it had "de- 
^ed for questioning” a four- 
rean French television crew. 

. One day after the abduction 
in a Muslim suburb of west 
Beirut, there was no word on 
the men's fete, but the claim, 
made by an anonymous tele- 
phone caller to a Western 
news agency, suggested thev 
coukl be set free. The caller 
made no demands. 

The Frenchmen were sent 
to Beirut after claims that M 
Michel Seurat, one of four 
Frenchmen Islamic Jihad says 
■it kidnapped in May, had been 
killed in reprisal for France's 
deportation of two pro-irani- 
an Iraqi activists to Baghdad 
where, according to some 
reports, they face possible 
execution. 

The male caller said the 
television crew, working for 
Antenne-2, were detained in 
the seaside Jnah district on 
Saturday afternoon. He iden- 
tilled the four as Philippe 


Rochot, Georges Hansen, 
A urel Cornea and Jean-Louis 
Normandin. The caller cited 
the crew's "suspicious move- 
ments in the Islamic suburbs". 

Lebanon's police com- 
mander, Major-General Os- 
man Osman, said there were 
no clues in the case, but 
admitted that the crew’s 
movements around Shia Mus- 
lim strongholds were anything 
but prudent. "Their presence 
there was a mistake,” he said. 

Although it appears that the 
crew would not join the other 
French hostages as such, their 
abduction gave Islamic Jihad 
chances to emphasize previ- 
ous warnings. “We give the 
French Government one week 
to recover our two comrades 
from the dungeons of the Iraqi 
regime," the caller said. 

After the claim saying that 
M Seurat, a researcher aged 
37, had been "executed", a 
second anonymous caller 
threatened that another 
French hostage would be 
killed if the two Iraqis. Fawzj 
Hamzch and Hassan 
Kheireddine. were not re- 
turned to France. Both men 
were arrested and expelled 
along with several other sus- 
pects in a police ami-terrorist 


drive on February 19. after a 
series of bombings in Paris. 

As usual, it was impossible 
to authenticate yesterday's 
telephone call. But what puz- 
zled many was that the Ara- 
bic-speaking man began it 
with a quotation from the 
Koran different from the al- 
ready familiar saying — "in the 
name of God. the Merciful, 
the Compassionate” - which 
Islamic Jihad uses in every 
statement. 

In the fluny of claims 
regarding the situation of the 
Frenchmen, one caller said on 
Saturday that the kidnappers 
were prepared to meet with Dr 
Razah Raad, a Lebanese-born 
French heart specialist who 
has sought, but failed to 
secure, the release of M Seurat 
and the other three French 
hostages in three visits he 
made to Beirut last year. 

Yesterday’s caller seemed to 
insist on that point when he 
said: "We emphasize that the 
dispatch of any other media- 
tor than Raad will only com- 
plicate the problem.” 

Mystery also surrounded 
the mission of M Serge 
Boidevaix, the Deputy Secre- • 
laiy-General of the French 
Foreign Ministry, who was 


expected to arrive in Beirut as 
part of the French effort to 
break the negotiations im- 
passe and secure the release of 

the hostages. There was no 
explanation why M Boidevaix 
was not on board the Middle 
East Airlines jet from Paris 
that landed on Saturday. 

Lebanese authorities greet- 
ed instead Monsignor Acfaille 
Silvestrini, the Vatican’s 
“Foreign Minister”, who ar- 
rived in Beirut on a different 
mission: to try to revive the 
stalemated talks to end 
Lebanon’s decade-old civil 
war. 

Mgr Silvestrini is expected 
to hold talks with President 
Gemayel of Lebanon and 
President Assad of Syria. But 
his arri val came amid discour- 
aging signs. On Saturday a car 
loaded with explosives blew 
up near an office of Mr 
Gemayel’s Phalange Party in 
the Christian eastern sector of 
the capital, killing five civil- 
ians.

President Jayewardene to con- 
vey India's present anxieties 
and its assessment of the 
situation. 

The President heard him 
patiently and, in response to a 
series of questions about the 
future of Indian shuttle-diplo- 
macy — which have appeared 
in the press -told him that the 
invitation to visit Sri Lanka to 
the senior rivikservant in the 
Indian External Affairs Minis- 
try, Mr Romesh Bhandari, 
was still open. 

"I interpret that to mean 
there 'wa$_ no major

that uncomfortable political 
concessions to the Tamils are 
therefore unnecessary. 

In the Indian Parliament 
the Foreign Minister, Mr 
Baliram Bhagat, appeared to 
be accusing the Sri Lankans of 
something like genocide and 
allowed himself to seem to say 
that he was giving them a 
month to sort themselves out 

The response from Colom- 
bo was a bitter Note, accusing 
the Indians of pandering to 
parochial and partisan con- 
cerns. The Note, couched in 
the most undiplomatic terms, 
virtually accused Mr Bhagat of 
being a fool, and sneered at 
India's own h uman rights

In the last four years Guinness has been 
transformed both in the UK and internationally. 

We sell nearly 40 per cent of all the beer 
exported from the UK to overseas markets. 

We have successfully launched new products 

both at home and abroad. 

Alongside our core drinks business we have 

expanded in retailing and health care, both 
growth sectors linked by strong brand names 
with good consumer franchises. 


All this has resulted in our Company 
growing in value from £90 million to over £900 
million in the past four years. 

During that period our shareholders have 
reaped the benefit. 

Our earnings per share have increased by 169 
per cent and our share price has shown an almost 
six-fold increase. 

Proof indeed that Guinness should be good 
for Distillers.

SPECTRUM 


Man of 
glass 

and steel 

1 ... or how Richard Rogers, the schoolboy 


who couldn’t spell or draw, became Britain’s 


most radical and renowned modern architect 





The winning 
design of 
the decade 


Richard and Su Rogers was to 
continue as a practice in-spite of 
the break up of the partners' 
marriage. They had three children 
but. by 1969, it had become dear 
that the marriage -was over. Roger 
had fallen in love with Ruth Elias, 
an American graphic designer, 
studying in London. . 

It was a model of a civilized 
separation- They continued to 
work together while, gradually, 
two homes were established — 
Ruth with Rogers and Su with the 
architect John Miller and the three 
boys. : 

By 1971 the practice had been 
joined by the Italian architect 
Tenzo Piano. They entered a 
competition for a new arts centre 
in Paris without the slightest hope 
of winning. Rogers was, in any 
case, violently opposed as he fell 
the job smacked ofjust the sort of 
establishment politics he most 
disliked: 

Entries had to be posed no later 
than June IS and, just before 
midnight oa that day, one of the 
staff, Marco Goldschmied, was

rejected as too tong. Goldschmiea 
cut them down on the spot- They 
turned up a i the office 36 hours 
later marked “insufficient 
postage". Goldschmied lore 
round to the post office and 
demanded a backdated post raark. 
They compromised and ga^c him

of the latest disaster. But the 
entries were discovered in a 
locked room soon afterwards. 

A month later they received a 
phone call telling them they had 
been ohosen front 681 entries from 
around the. world, to build the 
Pompidou . Centre on the 
Beaubourg Plateau in Paris. 

Rogers and Ruth went over that 
night, and the nfcxl d&y’Su and 
John Miller arrived in Paris . They 
had .won the .mas?-,,- important 
architectural commission, of the 
decade with a . design so radical 
that nobody even knew whether it 
could be built. Fora weekend they 
were the heroes of Paris — meeting 
the President and being bitterly 
resented by the French profession 
who had assumed the prize would 
gp to one of them. 

But Su realized she could have 
no part in it. In the ’ midst of the 
dashes from . parties to press 
conferences to meetings she made 
up her. mind. She resigned from 
ihe practice and returned to 
London with JohhMiBcr. -

I n 1938 the five-year-old 
Richard Rogers suddenly 
left a life of aristocratic 
wealth in Italy for the 
drabber surroundings of 
Bays water in central 
Londou.As Italy had drifted to- 
wards war. his father. Nino, who 
held a British passport, decided to 
emigrate to England. 

They arrived in the autumn. 
Nino had managed to smuggle out 
£800 but it was an emergency fund 
he would not touch. They moved 
into digs in Bayswater. Nino took 
Rogers to a local nursery school, 
attempting to teach him English as 
they walked back and forth, while 
Dada, his mother, walked to 
Notting Hill and Holland Park io 
an unhappy attempt to find views 
to match those they had left 
behind in Florence. 

Finally they settled in Epsom 
and Rogers began his education a> 
Kingswood House primary 
SchooL It was a disaster. On his 
first night he was beaten for using 
school towels to make a bed for his 
teddy bear. The beatings contin- 
ued as he seemed unable to make 
the slightest progress with bis 
academic work. 

In fa cl he was severely dyslexic, 
a disability neither understood 
nor acknowledged at the time. He 
was assumed to be lazy and 
ineducable by all but his parents. 
They could not believe their son 
was anything but immensely tal- 
ented. He was subjected to extra

tuition and finally to a crammer in 
Sutton. It was just about enough to 
push him through the common 
entrance exam and he won a place 
at St John's School. Leatherhcad. 

Once again, however, the En- 
glish education system seemed to 
overwhelm him. One teacher told 
Dada and Nino that he could 
perhaps become a policeman in 
South Africa. Higher education 
was out of the question. 

So, in 1951, Rogers began his 
National Service with little hope 
for the future. His first year was 
predictably disastrous. But mirac- 
ulously in his second year he was 
posted to the British garrison at 
Trieste. He rediscovered Italy and. 
most important of all he met 
Emesto Rogers again, his father’s 
cousin and one of Italy's most 
influential architects. 

After a few visits to Ernesto's 
Milan studio he determined to 
become an architect. He returned 
to England in 1953 to start a 
preliminary course at Epsom Art 
College and won a place at the 
Architectural Association. 

Again his education went wildly 
wrong. His written work was as 
bad as ever but. even more 
damaging, he could not draw. His 
attempts were frequently incom- 


prehensible and he resorted to 
employing his girlfriend to draw 
his ideas for him. Again his 
teachers despaired. 

In his final year, however, 
something clicked New. more 
sympathetic tutors began to 
glimpse an unusual talent beneath 
all the problems of technique. He 
left as a star pupil with the fifth- 
year prize for a scheme he had 
produced for a school for handi- 
capped children in Wales. 

For a year he worked 
unproductively for a local author- 
ity and then, with his new wife Su 
Brumwell he left to take a one- 
year Masters course at Yale. 

His architectural horizons sud- 
denly expanded. He went on vast 
field trips to see all the houses of 
Frank Lloyd Wright and every 
American building by Mies van 
der Rohe. He came in contact with 
the American giants of the time 
like Louis Kahn and Paul Ru- 
dolph and. most important of all, 
he teamed up with Norman 
Foster. 

By (963 they were back in 
England and a practice was estab- 
lished consisting of Su and Rogers, 
Foster and two sisters, Wendy and 
Georgie Cheeseman. both former 
girlfriends of Rogers. The work 
rate was furious and a kind of 
insanity prevailed in their Hamp- 
stead office. Georgie left in dis- 
may. 

Their very first project — a row 


m . h -' 



of three houses in Murray Mews, 
Camden Town — nearly resulted 
in Rogers leaving the profession 
for good. They had employed the 
cheapest builder they could find 
and everything went wrong. One 
of the clients visited the site with 
Rogers and gestured at some 
material on the floor. “What do 
you think that that is V he asked. 

“A damp-proof course" said Rog- 
ers. The client picked the stuff up. 
It was newspaper painted black. 

But with a house for his father- 
in-law. Marcus Brumwell; in 
Creek Vean. Cornwall, the team 
got into its stride. The house won 
an award 

Then they were asked to build 


Reliance Controls, a factory in 
Swindon. They had no time and 
very little money. They decided to 
use steel instead of the traditional 
“wet trades” and they built off- 
the-shelf using standard industrial 
components. Reliance was a tri- 
umph and became one of the most 
influential industrial buildings of 
its time. 

• But the partnership was collaps- 
ing. There was not enough new 
work and the ability of Foster and 
Rogers to work together had been 
exhausted. Team 4 broke up. 

Rogers formed a new practice with 
Su and they struggled by with a 
cult following among students but 
precious little work until 1971 —

their arrival in America far

Rebuilding 
Italy in 
England 

As the building of the Pompidou 
Centre came to an’end-in 1977.it 
became dear that Rogers had 
exhausted yet another partner- 
ship, Just as he had once found he 
could no longer work with Nor- 
man Foster, now the possibilities 
of cooperation with Kano seemed 
to have vanished. 

But the Pompidou Centre had 
proved such an extraordinary 
building with its vast steel struc- 
ture ana exposed air-conditioning 
ducts that nobody seemed to think 
of employing Rogers to building 
anything else. 

But with . Rogers onee again 
about to give up architecture in 
favour of teaching and his partner. 
John Young, considering becom- 
ing a mini-cab driver, they won. 
against all the odds, the competi- 
tion for the new Lloyd's building 
in London. 

It was a commission of stagger- 
ing scale — its final cost was to be 


£170m and it was to become the 
biggest private sector construction 
project m Britain. . : . ' 

It was a brave step for ; an 
institution like Lloyd's and doubts 
about the scheme were to emerge 
continually over the years of the 
project. Everybody assumed the 
lifts Rogers designed for the 
exterior of tbe building would leak 
until John Young took Lloyd's 
men to the Saint Francis Hotel in 
San Francisco where there "were 
similar lifts. 

They even grew suspicidus’fhat 
it was taking so long to build - 
American 1 blocks' went up itrhrilf 
the time. But; as one American 
speculative buSder commented 
when he was' shown the {dans: 
“Dai ain’t building, dat*s —ing 
architecture." 

But Sir Peter Green and 
Courtenay Bfackmore of Lloyd's 
never wavered mid Rogers got the 
building be wanted. It is an image 
of circulation, of movement and 
of city life. It contrasts sharply 
with the "grey," closed world at 
England in 1938, But it matches 
precisely the shining, living; pub- 
lic worid be bad known before He 
had rebuilt Italy. v:

It is not often that guerrilla 
commanders are invited to 
Downing Street fora chat with 
the Prime Minister. Mrs 
Thatcher has an aversion to 
the use of violence for political 
aims which is why her minis- 
ters keep their distance from 
the African National Congress 
and ihe Palestine Liberation 
Organisation. 

But Abdul Haq is different 
He is an Afghan resistance 
fighter in the tradition of the 
French maquis who is strug- 
gling to liberate his country 
from an invasion force of 
almost 120.000 Soviet troops. 
Although the men under 
Haq's command may some- 
times use brutal tactics — such 
as assassinations, sabotage or 
bombs in airports — they are 
fighting a ruthless enemy who 
has killed tens, possibly, hun- 
dreds of thousands of Afghans 
with bombs, bullets, rockets 
and napalm. 

Haq. a member of the Hezbi 
Islami guerrilla faction, leads 
about 5.000 men operating 
around Kabul. His last major 
offensive, just after Christ- 
mas. was to coincide with the 
sixth anniversary of the Soviet 
invasion. 

Militarily the operation was 
of questionable value, but it 
was a major propaganda suc- 
cess. “We hit the airport We

some people were killed. We 
hit the Soviet army headquar- 
ters in the Afghan defence 
ministry and we set off bombs 
in government buildings**, 
Haq said over tea in a luxury 
London hotel. 

He explained ibat although 
the mujahideen, as the Afghan 
guerrillas are known, control 
most of the countryside, “we 
must show the Russians and 
their followers that they are 
not secure even in the 
capital". 

Haq, aged 28. has been 
fighting since he was 16, years 
before the Soviet invasion in 
1979. He first took up arms 
against the government of 
President Mohammad 
Daoud. whom he fell was too 
pro-Communisi and who al- 
lowed the Russians to estab- 
lish a toehold in Afghanistan. 

After participating in four 
attempts to overthrow the 
Daoud regime he was arrested 
and sentenced to death, but 
was spared because he was 
under 18. When Daoud was 
overthrown, Haq's family 
managed to secure his release 
in the time-honoured fashion 
by bribing the new authorities 
with the equivalent of £3,000. 
Haq made his way to Paki- 
stan, joined the mujahideen 
and has been fighting ever 
since, mainly around Kabul 
and Nangarhar. 

Haq, broad-chested and 
bearded, looks the classic 
Hollywood image of a guerril- 
la leader. But his eyesi despite 
a ready smile, reveal the 


anguish of a man who has seen 
his countrymen being killed 
and maimed, tbeir homes 
destroyed, their crops razed.

its toU. He looks far older than 
his years. He has been wound- 
ed 14 times: one bullet nar- 
rowly missed his heart. On 
another occasion he was taken 
to a hospital in West Germany 
to have shrapnel removed 
from his head. His wounds 
still cause him pain. 

Although he talks about tbe 
mujahidin's need for more 
add better weapons, he has not 
lost hope that one day his 
country will be free. But he 
concedes that that day is a 
long way off. “This war has -a 
long future”, he sadly ob- 
served. 

Neither side at the moment 
has the capacity for outright 
victory. The Russians have 
been trying to secure their 
hold over cities like Kabul by 
carrying out a scorched earth 
policy in the surrounding 
countryside, sometimes using 
“Spetznaz” special troops to 
cany out search-and-destroy 
raids. “They know that guer- 
rillas depend on local inhabit- 
ants for food, support and 
information, so they have 
been tiding to drive them 
from their homes. Thousands 
have been forced lo flee”, he 
said. 

He conceded that the Rus- 
sians had succeeded in making 
the mujahideen's task more 
difficult. “But we are still 
hitting them", he aid. “In the 
long run they cannot win 
because very few people sup- 
port them." He predicted that 
the government of President 
Babrak Karmal, which 
“invited" the Russians into 
Afghanistan in 1979. would 
collapse if they now tried to 
leave. 

The guerrillas* main prob- 
lem was how to deal with 



Rebel with a cause: Abdul Haq, fighting since the age of 16. ‘This war has a long future*

“They are using helicopters 
like tanks, like trucks, like 
armoured personnel carriers. 
They attack us with them, 
they move their troops and 
supplies around in . them. 
We’ve only got machine guns 
to use against them." 

Haq insisted be would not 
be asking Mrs Thatcher for 
arms. So for, British support 
for the Afghan guerrillas has, 
been limited to humanitarian 
aid, and this is unlikely to 
change. He will, however, tell 
her that, in his view,' only 
force will rid his country of the 
Russians. This will riot be 
achieved by United Nations- 
sponsored “proximity” talks 
in Geneva but by fighting hi 
the. hills and valleys of Af- 
ghanistan.

In an exclusive interview. Princess Michael talks about style, design and fashion 



for the royal life 


As the mternatioTial 
collections open in 


Anthony Crickmay 



Milan, Princess Michael 
tells Snzy Menkes about 
her passion for the 
sharp-edged, sleek 
Italian style 


rrocess Michael of Kent says:“I 
am'* very big girl God made me 
very tan anagave toe big bones. 
And I am not going to go around 
aE my fife crymgaboutit/The flamboy- 
ant Princess's thi« week mairing a very 
public statement about her style. She is 
in Italy for the collections; last night she 
was at the Ferre show and tonight 
a t t e nds a dinner the designer gives inner 
honour. 

“My ideas on fashion are within the 
framework of my life. They are not a 
philosophy for evexyone^, she an- * 
nounced when I talked to her at 
Kensington Palace last week. 

“Just as I look at a house and deal with 
the problem of covering the windows, so 
for myself I do an exterior job on the 
skeleton I have been given.” ‘ 

- The Princess is interested in interior 
design, worked in ft professionally before 
her marriage and has just taken ooa role 
. as art buyer for* London gallery. 

* She uses design metaphors: her outfits 
must be in proportion like the pelmets to 
her curtains; 4*e chooses both dothes: 
and the gfrzesfor foe drawing room walls 
to last - ••• 

■■ “Give me * monstrous Victorian 
house and T think I . can tam it into' a 
thing ofbeanty^ she says. “ When I have 
a problem I knowhow I can deal with it 
in design”. She even worked out a fight 
switch in the Regency mode for the 
Palace walls.' 

“ I am in my. head a designer 
manquee”, she explains- “Shapes inter- 
est me. To dress a sofa is the same 
challenge as dressing a It is quite a 

lexical progression.” 

The son is pale buff and the lady 
dresses, on this first day of spring, in 
primrose yellow — a pleated skirt and 
bow-neck sweater, a pearl and diamond 
chokra and a cation fuzz of blond hair 
. around her shoulders. Outside the sky is 
’ porcelain blue and so are the watered silk 
walls and the pale armorial carpet . 

“I live in the eighteenth centnry in my 
mind", says Princess Michael “I see my 
whole life as a cu ltiv a tion of taste. If I 
were asked what is the objective of my 
life — leaving apart rijy husband and my 
children — I would say it was to improve 
the quality of my life, intellectually, 
culturally and in the way I choose to 
five.** 

T hat life is played out in the 
private apartments at the back 
of the 'Kensington Royal com- 
pound and in the country- in' 
Gloucestershire, where Princess Michael 
> says that die enjoys riding and being 
with her children Frederick anriEHa. She 
is also passionate about gardening. She is 
not, she says, obsessed with fashion, or 
interested m where hems are or what 
colour is “in’*. Taste (“a key word in my 
life”) and proportion are the governing 
fectors for furnishings or dress. 

“1 want a harmonious feeling. I don't 
want people to say *what lovely curtains’, 
but Svhat a lovely feefing my hostess has 
created in this room*. They mustn't say 
‘she was wearing a wonderful coat or 
hat*, but that ‘she looked wonderful*.”

Prince mid Princess Michael: The best-dressed man in England In his style 1 


“They!’ Tare, of course, the public. 
Princess Michael does , not have an. 
official role in the Royal Family,' nor 
- public funds to dictate that she should 
buy British, as she firmly states. . 

. “I have noUmig against British 
Hnthty, but I am a foreign person I 
have a foreign shape” she says. “I am 
alronrt a hypocrite. I wear for if the ani- 
mal is bred — and fated is important —to 
keep me warm in sub-zero temperatures. 
.1 also chase foxes on horses. And 1 don’t 
believe in buying British if British isn't 
good enough- ” 

Other members of die Royal Family 
may wear mink , hunt and have a 
Hanoverian bosom. Bnt ever since Ion) 
M e l bo urne told a frustrated young 
Queen Victoria that she was obliged to 
. dress British, and particularly' since the 
arrival of the stylish young Princess of 
Wales; the Royal Family has conspiar- 
ously dressed British —at least in public 
So-doos Prince® Michael Shecites the^ 
Emanuels (“and 1 was the first in the 
family to mid them”), Victor Edristein 
and Jan- Van Veklen as personal 
favourites. She admires the grace and 
imagination of Patricia Lester. She has 
occasionally worn Bruce OkffiekL “But I 
consider them all to be dressmakers” 
she sv|«.-“This is not going to win me 
any mends, bat there is a difference 
between couture and designer dothes. 
The British dothes are attractive, but 
they are meant to have a temporary life.” 

It is a far cry from Audrey Hepburn's 
cast-off haute couture dresses, which die 
young Marie-Christine von Reibnitz 
inherited and let out for hersd£ 
unpicking four interiinings of silk organ- 
za, learning exacting standards in the 
process. . 

She exempts Jean Muir from ha- polite 
but firm comments about the standards 
of British make: “For my opinion — 
although not for my own taste — she is 
the greatest designer in this country. She 
is totally at home with shape, structure . 


6 I am 41 
years old. If I 
am not sure 
by now of my 
own taste pity 

help me! V 


and* seaming.” -The Princess wears for 
many official occasions. Hardy Amies:' 
“He makes better women’s tailoring on 
coats and jackets than you can get out of 
the young designers.” But her fashion 
heart has gone out to Gianfranco Ferre, 
the shy, perfectionist Italian designer, 
whose dothes she buys from his London 
boutique. Ferre, who was trained as an 
architect, makes spare, ample clothes in 
luxurious materials. 

“If I had to say a designer whose 
dothes I am most comfortable in, ft is 
Ferre. He is an architect and I under- 
stand his designs” she says. 

Princess Michael looks striking in 
Ferre's sculptural red jacket (“The first 
time I have worn red. My preferred 
colours are usually shades of grey.”) She 
looks much less than her 41 yean in a 
curvy sweater embroidered in gold at its 
neck, or in a column of Mack silk with a 
deep sweep of embroidery at the back. 

She wore that last autumn to the 
London show of Gianni Versace, whose 
dothes die also admires. She likes, she 



Princess Michael of Kent wearing her favourite Ferro sweater with gilded embroidery 


says, the slick, modem sharp eHgp of 
Italian design. Whilst English clothes are 
about colour and detail, I talian dothes 
are about “line”. She admires too the 
rangy, sporty quality of American de- 
signers who also seem sympahetic to her 
large frame. 

Princess Michael speaks of the discreet 
charm of the shoulder pad in changing 
the female silhouette. 

“You can be fragile with large 
shoulders”, she says. “Iam very keen on 
femininty, even though I am six foot and 
have large bones.” 

Prince Michael enthusiastically sup- 
ports her Italian image, and considers it 
the most successful of the styles she has 
created. He appreciated, says the Prin- 
cess, an earlier image of small waisted 
crinoline ball gowns. (“If I had been 
around when Dior created the New 
Look, that would have been right for 
me” she says.) 

“My husband’s reactions interest me. I 
always show him new clothes. 1 think he 


is the best dressed man m England in his 
style. He inherited it from his own lather. 
The late Duke of Kent designed a lot of 
things. He was the only oqe of Queen 
Mary’s children who had a love of 
beautiful objects. He was really the 
creator of Princess Marina's style. When 
‘she arrived in England she was decidedly 
dowdy. It was under his guidance that 
she became a fashion Princess.” 

H er husband approves of Prin- 
cess Michael's Italian clothes, 
and they form the kernel of her 
wardrobe. “Bui I don't want to 
be disloyal to English designers. I shall 
continue to wear English clothes”, she 
says. 

Old dothes are retired to the country, 
where she wears “jeans, comfy jerseys 
and lots of shins” as weD as the khaki fa- 
tigues that she acquired on her late 
father’s farm in Africa. 

Princess Michael's role as a latter-day 
Princess Marina has been affected by the 
arrival in the family of “a dazzlingly 


beautiful teenager", who broke the 
fashion mould set in the 1950s and hard 
glazed by royal mothers-in-law. 

The hat that Princess Michael wore to 
the royal wedding was copied from a 
photograph of Princess Marina, whose 
serene elegance is framed in silver round 
the drawing room. But Princess Michael 
has struggled on her own, with no family 
guidance, to create an image. There are a- 
few Hungarian relatives, she says, “run- 
ning around” dressed in her mistakes. ■ 
“ It took me a long time to discover my 
look and my sty le”, she says. “I think r 
now have it in my houses and my 
clothes. I am 41 years old. If I am not 
sure by now of my own taste, pity help 
me!”

The birth pains of a career 


Going back to work after 
haring a baby is not always 
easy. Apart from the emotion- 
al issues — the guilt many 
mothers feel about leaving 
their child — there are the 
practical problems of making 
alternative, affordable ar- 
rangements for childcare. As a 
result, many women who coaid 
retain to work do not do so. 

A study carried out in 1979 
by the Policy Studies In s titu te 
for the Department of Employ- 
ment found that although one 
in two women bad the right to 
go back to work after materni- 
ty leave, only one in 10 did so, 
and, of these, only a third 
re t u rned to the same job, 
working the same hours. 

Beta more recent report, by 
Incomes Date Services, says 
there are signs that the situa- 
tion is changing- A survey of 
office staff by Alfred Marks, 
for instance, showed that 155 
per cent of women returned to 
work after maternity leave in 
1983, and by 1985 the figure 
had jumped to 31 per cent 

Even so, the working mother 
can feel beleaguered and iso- 
lated and that is one reason 
why the Working Mothers 
Association . was formed last 
year. Hilary Kaminer, * hB- 
time lecturer in English, who 
has three children, Gabriel, 6, 
Joshua, 3, and Raphael, 2, is 
the chairwoman. 

She says: “One of ©nr aims 
Is to provide moral support 
and information to women, 
partiadariy in that crucial 
period jnst before they go back 
to work. That can be a very 
anguished time, especially 
when you are trying to find 
someone else to care for year 
child.” 

The association has just 
published a comprehensive 
guide to help women ju^fe the 
demands ofa family and a paid 
job. The Working Mothers 
Handbook carers all the

The association also aims tt

It grew out of an expanding 
network of local working 
mothers’ groups — many of 
them part of, or developed 
from, existing National Child- 
birth Trust groups. At present 
there are more than 30 of these 
groups, which offer support at

Any mother who is working, 
st udy ing or plaguing ti) return 
to work after taking time off to 
have children, can join the 
association. Membership 
costs £3 a year and members 
get a quarterly newsletter. 
Working mothers can be put in 
touch with their nearest group 
or be given information ou bow 
to set up their own. 

The newsletter has sogges- 
od bow to cope with 
school age dtOdren. covers the 
formalities (things like a writ- 
ten conditions of service, tax 
and national insurance) and 
indudes personal accounts 

from some working mothers. 

These dispatches from the 
front line fflustrate quite well 
both the advantages and dis- 
advantages of different forms 
of care. 

Marion Cooper, a research- 
er and write with a two-year- 
old son and another baby 


expected soon was one of the 
founder members of file Work- 
ing Mothers Association. She 
says: “We hope the handbook 
wul be of real nse to many 
women. 

“Working mothers want to 
know how to find the best child 
care for their particular child 
in their particular circum- 
stances, and it isn't easy. Even 
interviewing childminders or 
would -be nannies can be hard 
if — like most women — you 
have never had to interview 
people fra jobs before.” 

Marion works part-time and 
shares a nanny with another 
working mother. like other, 
members of the association 
she is keen for women to 
explore the various ways that 


work and motherhood can be 
balanced. f 

She says: “If we pool out 
information, then mothers can 
go to their employers and 
suggest returning to work in a 
different way, armed with the 
knowledge that other women 
have negotiated these kind of 
deals and made them work. It 
is possible. A lot of employers 
are waking np to the fret that 
if women don't return to work 
after having a baby, they are' 
losing a valuable resource. Ttf 
a certain extent we are pushing 
on an open door.”

Gallery 

gauntlet 

Princess Michael of Kent is bead- 
ing for yet another unpleasant 
controversy: the art establishment 
is privately accusing her of a 
conflict of interest as both a 
trustee of the Victoria and Albert 
and now a director of the 
MacConnal-Mason commercial 
art gallery. I am told that respected 
dealers and museum experts are 
incensed and plan to challenge her 
to give up one post Colonel 
Farmer, the Princess's spokesman, 
would not comment but refereed 
me to MacCon nal- Mason. The 
accusation comes only weeks after 
the V & A’s director. Sir Roy 
Strong, resigned as an adviser to 
another commercial gallery, the 
Weiss in Mayfair. Despite denials 
of a conflict by Sir Roy, the arts 
magazine Apollo went on to accuse 
him of “heedlessly flouting 1 ' a 
serious principle. Ironically, 
Apollo called on the museum 
trustees, among them Princess 
Michael, to issue a “coherent and 
convincing statement about the 
whole undignified affair.” 

Grounded

Over BL, the government is now 
in a no-win position. Whatever 
the outcome, its industrial strategy 
has been undermined; whatever 
action it takes, marginal seats are 
in danger. The government has 
been made to seem negligent, yet it 
acted for the best of motives; 
above all, it resolutely refused to 
rake account of political self- 
interest. 

BL's own problems today stem 
from its failures 20 yean ago: the 
problems it is causing the govern- 
ment are the result of its successes 
over the past seven years. At the 
end of the 1970s it was by no 
means clear that BL would sur- 
vive. If Sir Michael Edwardes bad 
then thrown in the towel and said 
he could not secure workforce 
cooperation for the measures 
needed to save the company, that 
would have been the end. BL 
would have been broken up and 
its component pans sold off or 
closed. 

But Edwardes succeeded. The 
BL workforce has done everything 
that could reasonably be expected 
of it As the memory of Red 
Robbo fades, productivity per 
man today is three times higher 
than in 1979. Despite these 
improvements, however, most of 
BL is almost as far as ever fro m 
financial viability, and h seems 
that nothing can be done to close 
the gap. 

Austin Rover produces 4 50,000 
cars a year; it has 1 7 per cent ofthe 
domestic market and 4 per cent of 
the European. To make a profit 
and finance investment it would 
have to sell a million cars a year — 
25 per cent of the home market 
and 10 per cent of the European. 
That would require the govern- 
ment to take a gamble on the 
taxpayers' behalf and advance the 
company well over £1 billion fbr

street to

investment in new models. Even 
the government's critics are not 
advocating that 

In the summer of 1984, the 
Cabinet decided tbat something 
had to be done about the hope- 
lessly insolvent BL Trucks di- 
vision — there is 45 per cent over- 
capacity among European truck 
manufacturers — with the im- 
plication that closure was possible 
if no merger could be arranged. By 
January of this year the govern- 
ment and GM were close to an 
agreement, but as part of the deal, 
GM also wanted Land Rover. It 
offered £230 million for the two, a 
sum that pleasantly surprised the 
government and certainly bears 
no relation to any price/earnings 
ratio. 

Land Rover has been described 
as the jewel in BL's crown. If so. it 
is a paste jewel in a paper crown. 
Last year it made a profit of only 
£5 million on a turnover of 
£500 million. Because the US is 
the world's biggest market for 
four-wheel drive vehicles, a tie-up 
with GM and its dealer network 
makes sense. 

Ford approached the govern- 
ment about Austin Rover last 
October. The talks were carried on 


in great secrecy. On the govern- 
ment side only the Prime Min- 
ister, the Chancellor, Leon Brittan 
(then Industry Secretary), Peter 
Morrison, his deputy in charge of 
BL, Sir Brian Hayes, the DTI’s 
permanent secretary, and a few 
other officials knew what was 
happening. This was under- 
standable, for the negotiations 
were at a very preliminary stage, 
but they were not to the lilting of 
Harold Musgrove, of Austin 
Rover. Details leaked from the 
company to the press. 

When Paul Charm on became 
Industry Secretary on January 1 1 
he knew nothing about the talks 
with Ford or about the Tracks/ - 
Land Rover-GM proposals. Three 
days later, he bad to argue both 
deals through the Cabinet's “E” 
committee, and did so success- 
fully. Subsequently, he has been 
less successful in the Commons. 
John Smith, Labour's industry 
spokesman, is currently the sec- 
ond most effective Opposition 
politician (after David Owen), and 
Channon has been consistently 
outgunned. Nor is Peter Morrison 
a good Commons performer, al- 
though he does have a shrewd 
political nose, and predicted that 


the sale of Land Royer would 
cause trouble. 

It has. MPs have been in- 
undated with letters, most of 
which read something like this 
“As someone who has voted 
Conservative at every election 
since 1945, who has canvassed 
regularly and contributed unfail- 
ingly: as someone, indeed, who 
regards himself as being on the 
right of the party, let me tel!, you 
that if Land Rover is sold to the 
Americans I will never vote Tory 
a gain 

So what is likely to happen?. The 
government has still not given up 
hope of selling Land Rover to 
GM, although it would insist on 
guarantees on local content and 
British-based research and devel- 
opment. However, it is now more 
likely tbat ministers will try to 
persuade GM and the manage- 


ment consortium to share the 
company, while hoping that GM 
will take BL Trucks anyway for a 
nominal sum. But there is' no 
guarantee that GM will accept 
anything less than -their original 
proposaLIf the deal collapses the 
future for both BL Trucks and 
Bedford seems bleak. GM may 
even decide to dose. Bedford 
altogether, and there is no enthu- 
siasm in Whitehall for underwrit- 
ing BL Trucks' unending losses. 

if only Land Royer had ex- 
ploited the world leadership it 
enjoyed 20 years ago, it is now 
said. If only Austin Morris had 
followed up the Mini with other 
exciting new models - if only, for 
that matter, half the world's 
Mercedes were Jaguars. BL's de- 
cline is one of the most painful 
instances of Britain's industrial 
failure over the past decades: that 
does not mean that the solution to 
BL's problems now is to play 
“Let’s pretend it’s still only I960”. 


Richard Wigg on the tricky manoeuvring in Spam’s referendum 


Madrid 

After less than a decade of 
democracy, Spain has involved 
itself in what has always been the 
most slippery way of consulting 
the people, a referendum. It is 
voting on whether to stay in Nato: 
the first country to do so in the 36 
years since the alliance was 
founded. 

After a heated national debate, 
all Spaniards over 18 get a half- 
day off this Wednesday for the 
ballot. And the “No” votes may 
well beat the “Si” votes -only 
four years after Spain joined Nato. 

The issue was pui to a referen- 
dum after Spain's Socialist prime 
minister, 44-year-old Felipe Gon- 
zalez, and the veteran right-wing 
opposition leader, Manuel Fraga, 
had got themselves into a topsy- 
turvy situation. A Spanish 
cartoonist summed it up by 
showing Gonzalez labelled “Once 
No to Nato, now Yes”, Fraga 
labelled “Once Yes, now 
Abstain” and a desperately be- 
mused Spanish voter being bun- 
dled into a straitjacket. 

The Nato debate has grown into 
a big factor in the battle for power 
and an occasion for displaying not 
high democratic principles but 
political chicanery on both sides. 

Spain's political establishment 
suffered a jolt last week when 
results of four opinion polls 
appeared. All indicated that the 
government would lose its cam- 
paign for staying in Nato; and also 
that Fraga would get a poor 
response to his call for a boycott of 
the polL The polls forecast that the 
No voters, a mixed bag including 
right-wingers, would triumph — 
even though these voters have 
little representation in parliament. 

Cabinet ministers promptly 
launched a fierce assault to try to 
wring Yes decisions from the 
many don't-knows before 
campaigning ends at midnight 
tonight (tomorrow is a day for 
reflection). At the weekend min- 
isters were saying that if they do 
snatch a victory, it will be a very 
close one. 

The campaign has shown how 
easy it is in Spam to assemble a No 
vote with almost no party machin- 
ery. thanks to deep-rooted Spanish 
neutralism, memories of the Civil 
War, and anti-militarism and anti- 
Reaganism among the young. 

A peace movement has mush- 
roomed. led by pacifists, left-wing 
intellectuals and artists, helped 
out by the Communists. The polls 
showed that the peace movement 
has appealed to voters at all 
educational levels. The movement 
has made Gonzalez look suddenly 
like a sorcerer’s apprentice. 

After Gonzalez had addressed a 
rally in the town of Jaen in his 
native Andalusia, the local Social- 
ist party secretary said: “This 



‘No’ becomes ‘si’ 
in a topsy-turvy 
fight for votes 


referendum campaign has been 
nothing like any general election 
we have fought, when other 
parties’ supporters helped us win 
power for the first time in almost 
50 years.” 

In Catalonia, as in the Basque 
region, opposition to the Socialist 
campaign has gone hand in hand 
with nationalist sentiments. “If 
the Socialists had been anti-Nato, 
then here we might have voted 
Yes,” said a lawyer in Barcelona, 
Spain's biggest industrial city. 

A young woman economist in 
Barcelona said: “I know all the 
strategic and economic reasons for 
voting Yes, but I want to register 
my protest for their not even 
allowing us to be neutral” 

At a rally in Barcelona, Gon- 
zalez went after the centre and 
centre-right vote, which has been 
identified with Nato throughout 
the campaign. It is bis only hope of 
avoiding defeat 

Whatever the verdict Fraga 
looks doomed. If the government 
achieves a Yes majority it will be 
able to claim success; but if it 
loses, Fraga's abstention campaign 
will be blamed in Spain, and 
elsewhere in Europe, for a Nato 
setback — and Fraga is, ironically, 
a fervent believer in Nato. 

Both party leaders made 
misjudgements. Fraga never be- 
lieved that Gonz&lez would keep 
his J9S2 general election promise 
to hold a referendum to let the 


Spanish people “pronounce on 
our membership of Nato”. 

As for Gonzalez, he thought 
Fraga would not continue with his 
brinkmanship and order a boy- 
cott. He calculated that although 
the Nato issue might lose him up 
to half his faithful voters, support 
from the centre and centre-right 
would save the day for him. 

When Fraga came out with his 
call for a boycott, with the aim of 
inflicting maximum political 
damage on Gonzalez, it took a 
straight-talking woman in his 
party to dare to condemn his 
strategy. Senora Victoria Fernan- 
dez-Espana. a well-known MP 
from Galicia, was alone among 
Fraga's 106 MPs to insist on a 
contrary line. 

Nato membership is too serious 
a matter for party politics, she 
said, and announced she would be 
voting Yes. “I had to say ibis 
publicly because I believe many 
ordinary people are being 
deceived,” she told me, emphasiz- 
ing her duty to her rural constit- 
uents. It is above all in rural areas 
that the part)- machine led by 
Fraga — a one-time minister of 
the late dictator Franco — counts 
on telling humble voters what to 
do. 

Fraga stuck to his line. At the. 
same lime he has been deviously 
passing round instructions to 
supporters to vote No. 

Gonzalez’s basic difficulty was 


one of credibility. When in oppo- 
sition he argued against Spain 
joining Nato. Then he. was after 
the Communist and lower-mid- 
dle-class nationalist vote, at a time 
of big anti-nuclear missile 
demonstrations in Europe. His 
party collected 600,000 signatures 
against joining Nato. When in 
May 1982 Spain did join, the 
Socialists boycotted the flag-rais- 
ing ceremony at Nato head- 
quarters. Party militants 
remember such things. 

His election promise to hold a 
referendum was a halfway house; 
as Alfonso Guerra, the deputy 
prime minister, acknowledged the 
other day. He said few voters 
realized at the time the signifi- 
cance of turning away from a dear 
negative to Nato. 

When the Socialists came to 
power, they decided to keep the 
referendum pledge alive in order 
to help Spain’s negotiations for 
entry into the EEC. As one 
Socialist put it, the EEC (which is 
pro-Nato) “saw there would be 
absolutely no chance of our getting 
a Yes verdict on Nato unless we 
were admitted first to their club”. 

Even King Juan Carlos has got 
involved. Does be abstain or vote? 
Either way he takes sides. So he 
has been advised: Go to the polls 
late, so that the government 
television does not exploit the act 

One hoi topic in the dehate has 
been the “preconditions” laid 
down by the government to 
encourage a Yes verdict - such as 
non-nuclear status and non- 
integration into Nato's military 
structures. The trouble with those 
conditions, which clearly limit 
Spain's commitment, is that 
Gonzalez's party is on record as 
having expressed its scepticism, 
only four years hack, about the 
effectiveness of such conditions 
once Spain was in Nato. 


For the past five weeks a drama of 
almost Jacobean proportions has 
been played out over the future of 
Mrs Wendy Savage, the consul- 
tant obstetrician at the London 
Hospital who has been suspended 
for almost a year for alleged 
professional incompetence. 

In an former health authority 
council chamber in Hackney, 
allegations of intrigue, conspiracy, 
and incompetence have beat 
thrown about in terms thai the 
public rarely expects to be heard 
when one doctor is talking of 
another. 

Mrs Savage has been presented 
by her supporters as a woman 
more sinned against than sinning, 
the victim of a male conspiracy by 
colleagues who could not stomach 
her radical, feminist approach, her 
belief in a woman’s right to a say 
in the method of delivery, in 
community care for expectant 
mothers, in low-tech non-inter- 
ventionist childbirth, who de- 
spised her colleagues' penchant for 
private practice and an easy 
“knife-happy” life at the expense 
of women's wishes, feelings and 
emotions. 

Her accusers have presented her 
as an ill-tempered, arrogant, 
aggressive crusader, whose belief 
in admirable principles was 
pushed so far that it pul at risk the 
lives of mothers and babies alike. 

Her case has divided the ob- 
stetric profession. Eminent spec- 
ialists have described her handling 
of. childbirth as “bizarre” and 


Reading too much 
into Savage 


“incomprehensible” while others 
have defended it as within the 
broad limits of acceptable medical 
practice. The future of obstetric 
practice in this country bangs on 
the result, we are told, with the 
threat of more intervention, more 
caesareans and more defensive 
practice if she loses. 

It is not a taje from which 
anyone emerges with much credit. 
That the inquiry should never' 
have taken place m the way it has 
is crystal dear. There are far better 
ways to spend upwards of 
£200,000 than in an adversarial 
contest which destroys pro- 
fessional reputations, leaves the 
women of Tower Hamlets a 
consultant short for a year, shows 
Mrs Savage's boss,’ Professor 
Gedis Grudzinskas, as failing to 
reconcile professional and 
personality differences in his 
department, and demonstrates 
that the health authority's chair- 
man and its officers lacked the 
imagination to seek outside pro- 
fessional help to bang some heads 
together. The London Hospital ob- 
stetric department is dearly a 
deeply unhappy place and heaven 
help whoever eventually has to 
sort it out 


The inquiry has none the less 
raised important issues. It has 
brought to the fore once again the 
continuing debate on how child- 
birth should be handled, how far 
women should have a say in their 
care, how soon and how far 
obstetricians should intervene. 

It has demonstrated, above all 
that in a branch of medicine which 
deals with perhaps the physiologi- 
cally most complicated of all 
processes, practice is still as much 
an art as a science and that there is 
no consensus on the balance of 
risks and benefits in difficult cases. 

For the longer term, it has raised 
important issues about how pro- 
fessional differences should be 
reconciled and how incompetent 
doctors should be disciplined. 
Clearly this way is not the right 
way. 

But for the inquiry to be allowed 
to settle, however indirectly, the 
future pattern of obstetric care in 
the UK would be wholly wrong. 
For the issue that has been before 
the inquiry has not been Mrs 
Savages principles and beliefs, 
but whether she applied safely 
principles that many obstetricians 
in fact share. 

For Mrs Savage, for all her 


public persona as a radical obste- 
trician, is not on the extreme end 
of “natural childbirth" obstetric 
care. Her caesarean section rate, at 
10.8 per cent, is fractionally above 
the national average, not way 
below it. 

She told the inquiry that one of 
the difficulties of practising at the 
Mile End she of the London 
Hospital was that it was hard to 
obtain epidural anaesthesia — and 
if anything is a high-tech interven- 
tion into the “natural” pain of 
childbirth, epidural anaesthesia is. 

In the one case of the five that 
sticks out as dearly controversial, 
she does not risk being found 
incompetent for her original de- 
cision to give the woman a trial of 
labour, but for her persistence in 
continuing -the effort when even 
she believed there was very little 
chance the child could be safely 
delivered vaginally. 

The debate about obstetric care 
is a crucial one, and dearly 
underlies the case. But win or lose, 
Mrs Savage's supporters and her 
opponents will do women and 
obstetrics a disservice if they 
maintain that an ugly dash of 
personalities and an adversarial 
inquiry, in which the only winners 
are the lawyers, should help .settle 
the future practice of obstetrics in 
Britain. The inquiry team would 
do well to step outside its terms of 
reference and make that clear.

I find myself in agreement with 
Eric Heifer, Derek Hatton and 
various other people who argue 
that the Labour Party should pay 
the surcharges- imposed on the 
Lambeth and Liverpool coun- 
cillors, or ex-connciUora as we 
must now call them. 

I say this not out of any sense of 
solidarity with .their actions 
(which in. my view were stupid, 
irresponsible and short-sighted); 
nor out of a wish to deplete 
Labour Party funds, although J 
know I shall be accused of. that It 
is rather 7 because it seems only 
right that when large numbers of 
people are-involved in taking a 
decision,- it -is unfair' that only a 
few should bear the consequences. 

The Labour Party must not be 
allowed to get away with the 
pretence that what the Lambeth 
and Liverpool rouncillarscLidwas 
a regrettable escapade by a few 
maverick left-wingers, some of 
them now facing expulsion from 
the party. As the- Audit Commis- 


sion 

days, if those 80 are guilty, so are 
several hundred others who de- 
layed setting* rate last year. And 
for every one of those there are 
two or three others who voted for 
the same policy on their respective 
councils but were saved from 
bankruptcy; disqualification and 
legal costs by- the fact that some of 
their more' moderate Labour col- 
leagues broke-ranks and voted 
with Conservative and Alliance 
- councillors to make a budget at the 
proper lime. 

And behind each one of the 
councillors there are hundreds of 
ordinary Labour Party members 
who voted, at ward and constit- 
uency-meetings, to adopt this 
particular strategy against rate- 
capping and who passed stirring 
and defiant motions to that effect 
“mandating” their representatives 
to vote accordingly. 

As for the thousands of trade 
union members whose delegates 
were vigorously engaged in apply- 
ing the same sort of pressure, 
perhaps they can be excused from 
any personal moral liability since 
it is unlikely they knew what was 
being said in their name. Also, to 
be fair, trade union repre- 
sentatives, when pressed; have, 
always , refused to commit their 
members to any sort of financial 
loss-sharing. 

.1 remember an occasion five 
years ago when a group of. dele- 
gates from, the public sector 
unions were exhorting Labour 
councillors to pursue a course of 
action which would almost cer- 
tainly, as conceded by all present, 
lead to a surcharge bill of several 
million pounds. A councillor 
asked what share of the damage 
the unions were prepared to carry. 
One union delegate; given to 
pomposity (he is now a Labour 
MP) replied that . that was not an 
appropriate question: basically, 
the councillors had to accept that, 
they happened to be “at the sharp 
end”. Another, more forthright, 
countered with: “Are you joking, 
male? My members don’t have 
that sort of monejtf” 

But responsibility for the de- 
cisions that led to the personal 
misfortunes of the councillors 
concerned goes well beyond their 
local Labour parties and trade 


unio n branches. It was official 
Labour policy. The party con- 
ference in October 1984 passed a 
local government resolution 
which not only “saluted Uv- 
erpooTs stand” (liverpooTs stat£> 

- that year having been to delay 
setting a rate arid so put pressure 
on the government), but also 
“supported councils which are 
forced to break the law as a result 
of Tory policy”. 

Nor was even tbat ihefrH extent 
of parry su pport In January 1983 
while the leaders of all the r ate- 
rapped councils were' meeting to 
plan their strategy of non-compli- 
ance, dm Labour Party’s NEC 
focal government sub-committee 
passed a motion congratulating 
“those local authorities which 
• have come together to combat 
central government attempts to 
withdraw democratic ami Ideally 

- determined provision of services 
and jobs” and. supporting “lift 
decisions taken by those authori- 
ties to reject the grant assessment 
and allocation announced by the 
government”. This, was widely 
interpreted as support for the 
strategy. John Carve L, one of the 
best-informed local government 
•correspondents of the day, wrote 
in the Guardian on January 16 
1985: “the stance of son-compli- 
ance has been backed by the 
Labour Party and the TUG.” 

Many people most be wonder- 
ing now howthey could have, been 
so foolish to believe these tactics 
would work. I am not referring to 

- the councillors themselves, who 
were caught up in azealons frenzy, 
but to journalists and political 
commentators. Quite a few br- 
lieved - there was a better than 
average chance that many coun- 
cils would refuse to set & rate, 
would run out of money, would 
bring services to a standstill and 
would tii us force the government 
to respond. I think that even in the 
shadow cabinet there were those 
who thought — feared ntigit be a 
'better word — that it might wort 
Consequently they kept their 
heads down and treated “non- 
compliance” as the weasel word it 
is, meaning anything from 
strongly worded disapproval to 
outright defiance of the law, 
according to inclination and 
circumstances, and left the run* 
ning to council leaders like David 
Bhmkett and Margaret Hodge, 
who are now both under threat. 

What the poor fail-guys musfa 
find mote gaffing than anything* 
else is that the whole exercise has 
turned out to be wholly un- 
necessary. None of the councils 
concerned has sufierded the 
municipal Gdtterd&mmerung we 
were so frequently promised. They 
still spend as much as they ever 
did, with apparently plenty to 
spare for consciousness-raising 
junkets of all sorts. We are two 
years into rate-capping, and in 
those authorities there is not a cut 
in sight For this particular conjur- 
ing trick they are indebted to thdr 
finance officers who, now the 
lawyers have had a good run for 
their money, and finally failed, 
have become the latest saviour » 
the “jobs and services”, campaign"

"Tte United Stales* decision

; now?- 

-"•i. The size of the Soviet team

Excessive.' At 275 it is more 
-'than double that of the Ameri-

.; Department “extras” on the 
■' ? shiittle from Washington at 
—virtually eleventh-hour notice. 

. the Russians., far from home, 
‘jjiave to cover a wider range of 
options. 

As an argument it is hardly 
'convincing. It has certainly 
’^convinced no-one yet, and the 
“burgeoning bulk of the Soviet 
missions (including dele ga- 
"tions from the Ukraine and 
“Byelorussia) has long been a 
;matter for comment Western 

• UN officials have prided

' pick out which are Soviet spies 

• ■’em the UN committees, by the 
•superior cut of their suits or 
the Quality of their American 
'English. Here as elsewhere it 


has always been assumed that 
around half or more of the 
. Soviet team have been there 
■ for reasons other th?p diplo- 
macy. 

If the United States has been 
able, to confirm- these sus- 
picions and b as pr oof of illegal 
activities by those masquerad- 
ing under the UN flag, it is of 
course justified in acting. Brit- 
ain has hot hesitated to expel 
Russian officials from the 
well-staffed embassy in Ken- 
sington, for espionage - 
•howeverhard the Government 
' might, havebeen trying to im- 
prove its : relations with Mos- 
cow at the time American 
security agents have long mon- 
itored the activities of Soviet 
officials at the UN (and with 
particular vigour since the 
Walker spy case) and one must 
assume that Washington feels 
it is now sure enough of its 
facts to apt incisively. The 
United States is in' the unique 
position of playing host to the 
UN - whose officials are now 
said to be studying the im- 
pl ications of the US action for 
the organization and 
itscharter. But if evidence can 
be brought of spying, it would 
be . hard for the UN to con- 
demn the Washington move. 

But why now? The official 
explanation: is- that the ev- 
idence had been gathered by 
last Autumn, bat Washington 
stayed its hand for fear of 
spoiling the Geneva summit in 
November. As it was , they had 
only two months before an- 
nounced further travel restric- 
tions on Russians working as 
international officials in the 
UN secretariat (Soviet UN 
diplomats were already re- 
stricted to moving within a 25- 
mile radius of New Yprk). To 
follow that by an announce- 


ment of this kind would have 
certainly chilled the fireside 
chat of the .two world leaders 
in their villa beside Lake 
Leman. 

. As it is, the announcement 
would seem to rule out the 
prospects for a second summit 
in June. This was the preferred 
White House date, but bas 
looked increasingly unlikely 
for some time. The Russians 
■ have always wanted one in the 
.Autumn, and Mr Gorbachov 
during the Soviet party con- 
gress implied that there might 
not be one at all in the absence 
of real progress in the arms 
talks at Geneva. The timing of 
this latest upset might be seen 
as the response of an irritated 
White House - signalling that 
there are limi ts to how far it 
will go to ensure seeing Mr. 
Gorbachov step on to the 
tarmac at Washington this falL 
The withdrawal of the 105 
unwanted Soviet officials at 
the UN (it will still leave them 
with the biggest mission) is 
due to take place over 18 
months from October, the 
Russians probably leaving one 
by one as they come to the end 
of their postings. Coming as it 
does though, after a series of 
recent clashes between Wash- 
ington and Moscow, could this 
now cast a planning blight over 
the Autumn? 

The answer to this depends 
veiy much upon Soviet re- 
actions. In the past Moscow 
bas reacted angrily - and even 
retaliated - after the expulsion 
of Russian diplomats from 
Western capitate. But the ex- 
change has usually been short 
and sharp. It remains to be 
seen whether this latest row, 
because of its timing and its 
involvement of the UN, will 
do more lasting damage. 


FALKLANDS FACTORS 




i 

W! 


>■ • ^ 35 



Nearly fouij years since Ar- 
gentine forces invaded , the : 
Falkland Islands, 3,000 British 
troops remain on alert in the 
South Atkntic ip. case they 
should try it agmac hris Jrue 
_ that the -Government, ^caught 
napping once; would not relish 
being- ambushed again. It is 
equally true that Argentina has 
% never formally declared an end 
to hostilities - as Whitehall is 
fond of recalling. But the 
threat, from a Buenos Aires 
regime which is opposed to the 
use of force .to attain- its 
Objective of sovereignty over 
the islands, is more apparent 
_ than real - and not very 
J apparent at that 

Sceptics argue that the gov- 
ernment in Argentina might 
change - arid, da so. for the 
woise. So it might- Brit there 
are few signs that it will in the 
foreseeable future, and if there 
were - then the presence of 
British troops on the Falklands 
would be more likely to pro- 
mote that contingency than 
prevent it Moreover the open- 
ing of the main runway at the 
new Mount Pleasant airpeat 
•.last May, has enabled the rapid 

> ’ Reinforcement of the garrison 

> there in an emergency. The 
i -number of troops couls be 
? reduced to the level necessary 

to protect the airport and keep 
ji open for the addiional 
battalions to arrive. It must be 
hoped that progress will be 
made towards this in the 
Summer * before waiting for 
the completion of the Mount 
Pleasant complex next year. 

, The 150-mile protection 
zone around tire islands could 
be removed for similar reasons 
^jjemittirig another frigate to 
return. This would ease the 
ship management problems of 
a hard-pressed fleet- The. tri- 
service cost of maintaining the 
garrison at its present level is 
around £370m a year. This has 
to be seen in the context oi a 
total defence budget of more 
than £18bn, and withdrawal o« 


-M 

y-.jar- 




troops , to this country would 
not bring anyway a straight 
return in cash. But just as the 
exclusion zone is resented in 
'rBuenos Aires, so the. drain on 
tire ' British exchequer will 
come to be increasingly re- 
sented by* people in Britain. 
.Even many of the islanders 
themselves acknowledge that a 
long continuation of the statua 
quo could do more political 
damage than, it has military 
jvalite. 

There are sound reasons 
why Falklanders might be 
wary of forfeiting good will in 
this country - the chief one 
being that progress towards 
broadening the islands’ eco- 
nomic base is proving to be 
embarrassingly slow. With 
most of the Government’s 
post-war £31m development 
cash already allocated (though 
not necessarily spent) there are 
no signs of the economic take- 
off which at one time Falkland 
optimists had hoped for. 

Some movement has been 
made in the division of the 
islands' Luge estates into 
smaller owner-occupied sheep 
farms and output it is 
claimed, has gone up where 
this ■ has happened. But the 
overall pattern of land owner- 
ship looks, unlikely to change 
very dramaticzHy. A feasibility 
study of in-shore crab fishing 
has had promising results. But 
then no-one. has yet worked 
out how and where to market 
the product with Britain an 
expensive 8,000-air miles away 
and Argentina geographically 
near but politically distant 
The woollen mill established 
to make better use pf the 
home-grown product is feeing 
not dissimilar difficulties. . 

Off-shore fishing is a conten- 
tious subject with 130 vessels 
from a variety of countries, 
trawling within 200 miles pf 
the ■ islands on one recent 
count The islanders want 
Britain to declare a 200-mile 
fishing zone, within which 
these visiting fishermen would 


have to pay licence fees to the 
local economy. The British 
Government wary of creating 
more friction;' prefers to work 
for a multilateral agreement on 
fish quotas, worked out on the 
basis of a survey by the Food 
and Agriculture Organization 
(to be completed later this 
year). Either way the growth of 
local fishing could bring in 
significant sums if the vessels 
can be persuaded to put into 
Port Stanley for facilities. 

There are those who still 
believe that the islands are 
capable of building up their 
own tourist industry , for 
ornothologists, marine 
archaeologists - or anyone else 
prepared to pay up to £3,000 a 
trip. But the numbers are 
unlikely to be large and there is 
about this, as about other 
attempts to exploit the islands' 
unique potential, a faintly 
desperate air. 

The most recent develop- 
ments in the Falklands were 
the closure of the local brewery 
and the “Up for Sale” sign on 
that famous local hostelry the 
Upland Goose. To Baronness 
Young, deputy Foreign Sec- 
retary who returned a week 
ago from her second visit to 
the islands, it must have been 
apparent that in a scattered 
community of 1,900 people 
(100 more than at the time of 
the war) there is a basic 
shortage of manpower and 
skills which must hamper any 
attempts, however well-meant, 
at expansion. 

The chances of local 
development would be im- 
proved by the normalisation of 
relations with Argentina and 
the restitution of air links with 
the South American mainland 
That in itself might be en- 
couraged by the lowering of 
Britain's military profile in the 
South Atlantic. Neither would 
guarantee success. But they are 
starting to look like necessary 
prerequisires if success is ever 
to be achieved

Change of arms 

From Mr Philip H, Slake 

Sir: Since England ‘reltEQUishflfl 

sovereign claims over Ireland as a 


whole in 1922 and since the Irish 
harp in no way now symbolises 
England's remaining interest, is it 
not time that (he royal arms were 
changed to a more realistic form 
bv let us say, substituting the 
arms ofUlster for those of Ireland 
and introducing the arms of 
Wales? 

Possibly the best arrangement 
would be Wales jn the third 
quarter and Ulster in the fourth, 
so that for ose in Scotland the 
third and fourth quarters of the 
roval arms would remain the same 
and only the first and second 
quarters would need to be trans- 
posed. 

The advantages of this sc heme , 
apart from its being, more repre- 
sentative of Great Britain, are that 
the arms of the prince of Wales 
would be simplified and improved 


by the removal of the super- 
imposed shield of Wales, for 
which there would be no need 
(alternatively, H could be replaced 
by the arms of the dnchy of 
Cornwall); and that in the event, 
at present unlikely, of Ulster's 
joining the rest of Ireland, it would 
be a simple matter to reintroduce 
into the fourth quarter the arms of 
England or Scotland, as appro- 
priate. 

It seems probable that such a 
revision would meet with general 
approval .in both Wales and 
Ulster.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR 


Damage to the 
tourist trade 

From Mr Conal R. Gregory. MP 
for York (Conservative) 

Sir, The evidence that Britain’s 
largest growth industry, tourism, 
continues to attract record num- 
bers of overseas visitors, speading 
in excess of £5.4 billion per 
annum, with a good effect on 
employment in this sector by 
some 50.000 jobs a year (report, 
February 27), is in possible jeop- 
ardy on two grounds. 

Firstly, the impact of terrorism 
in Europe is now resulting in 
substantial cancellations m the 
UK hotel trade. Almost 48 per 
cent of travel agents in the USA 
have experienced visitor cancella- 
tions. according to a Travel 
Weekly poll. Whilst it is under- 
standable that there has been 
concern through last summer’s 
hijacking of a TWA flight in 
Athens, the seizure of the Achille 
Lauro cruise ship and the Decem- 
ber deaths at airports in Rome and 
Vienna, too many North Ameri- 
cans consider Briiain in the same 
context. The media photographs 
of troops and armed police at 
Heathrow Airport have not dis- 
pelled this point The British 
Tourist Authority needs to im- 
mediately promote Britain as a 
safe and attractive venue to 
overseas visitors. 

Secondly, the confusion over 
classification is likely to do untold 
damage. For years Britain has 
been out of tine with the rest of 
Europe in having a non-statutory 
system of registration and 
classification for accommodation. 
The ill-conceived crown scheme, 
which has first been promoted in 
Scotland and is now extended to 
Wales and England, results in the 
nonsense of a three-star hotel (by 
RAC/AA s tandards, which are 
well understood) being “uprated” 
to five crowns. 

The visitor, whether from the 
UK or overseas, will be dis- 
appointed and indeed fed cheated 
if a hotel claims five crown status, 
but is frankly not up to the same 
status awarded to a Park Lane 
hotel British tourism will pay 
dearly if this is not rectified. 

Yours faithfully, 

CONAL GREGORY,

Takeover qualms 

From Miss J. L. Hopkins 
Sir, With the arrival today of 
further bulky documents from 
United Biscuits (Holdings) pic 
urging their shareholders to vote 
in favour of the acquisition of 
Imperial Group at the extraor- 
dinary general meeting of UB on 
March 18 next, I am impelled to 
express my surprise that, since the 
merger was proposed in Decem- 
ber, 1985, not one of the directors 
nor. as far as I am aware, anyone 
else has said that some UB 
shareholders are most uneasy at 
the prospect of deriving part of 
their future income from products 
carrying “a Government health 
warning”. 

The only indication that the 
directors may have had qualms on 
■this score are contained in the 
paragraph on page 11 of the listing 
particulars, dated February 28, 
1986. in which Sir Hector Laing 
states, “We expect that, as a result 
of the growth in the other busi- 
nesses of the enlarged group, the 
proportion of profit arising from 
tobacco will decline significantly 
over the next few years”. 

It seems that those UB 
shareholders who have scruples, 
as I have, about the merger, have 
no option but to vote against the 
acquisition of Imperial Group, or 
sell their holdings before the 
extraordinary general meeting. 
Yours faithfully,

Blocks on path to Ulster peace 


From the Reverend 3. A. Hum 
Sir, May an English clergyman of 
the Irish Presbyterian Church be 
given a hearing amidst the raucous 
shouting that is supposed to be the 
hallmark of every Ulsterman? 

The Press and the TV neglect 
the thousands upon thousands of 
good, decent people who wish 
only to milk their cows, lead their 
beasts to market, and bring up 
their children in quiet and se- 
curity. 

We do not shout and rage, nor 
are we bigots. We are frightened in 
a way that you could hardly 
imagine in the’ relative peare you 
thankfully enjoy. We feel more 
frightened because our best friend, 
as it were, has lei us down. Our 
best friend has given us a cure 
which is honestly (1 hope) thought 
to do the unwilling patient good. 

What the Houses of Parliament 
fail to understand is not the merits 
or defects of the agreement, but 
the unfairness of its implementa- 
tion. It is this which galls us and 
makes us think we have no 
defender. 

Mr King prides himself in 
talking to Mr Molyneaux and Mr 
Paisley after the agreement. We 
think the talking should have 
taken place before it, and with all 
the elected members, not simply 
with one who led at that time a 
party of one MP. 

It's a matter of fair play, and 
because that has not been seen to 
be done, we feel terribly sad and 
let down. I think you would feel 
the same, had you been treated 


similarly. People act desperately 
when they are put in a desperate 
position.

From Dr P. A. J. Waddingion 
Sir, During the miners’ strike we 
heard much about “policing by 
consent”. It was alleged that by 
preventing the forcible closure of 
premises and protecting those who 
wished to work, the police had lost 
the consent of local mining 
communities. 

Almost a year to the day after 
that strike ended the police find 
themselves, once again, maintain- 
ing public order and preventing 
intimidation. Strangely, this time 
we do not hear complaints from 
those on the political left that the 
RUC bas lost consent of the 
community in Ulster. 

On the contrary, they insist 
(rightly) upon the maintenance of 
the rule of law against unconstitu- 
tional action. How do they justify 
one law for the miners and 
another for loyalists?

Sellafield safety 

From Dr Ralph H. Thomas 
Sir, Mr Robin Russell Jones 
recently accused the Black inquiry 
of a reversal of the normal process 
of scientific reasoning (“Sellafield, 
leaky as a sieve”. February 26). He 
makes this judgement because the 
inquiry concluded that nuclear 
discharges from Sellafield were 
unlikely to be responsible for the 
observations that “the rate of 
leukemia in Seascale ... was 10 
times the national average”. 

It is, however. Mr Jones's 
scientific reasoning that more 
properly might be called to ques- 
tion. He implies that leukemia 
clusters at several locations in the 
United Kingdom reported by 
some observers may be attributed 
to the presence of nearby nuclear 
installations (presumably by radi- 
ation “leaks”). 

Students of epidemiology are 
frequently reminded that associ- 
ation does not prove causation. To 
demonstrate the point, an eminent 
statistician was fond of dem- 
onstrating to his students that 
there is an extremely high correla- 
tion, in north-western Europe, 


between the birth rate and the 
population of storks. 

The fluctuations in the in- 
cidence rates of leukemia with 
locality — which Mr Jones cites in 
support of his implication that 
nuclear installations are harmful 
to the health of the general public 
- have been a matter of intensive 
study, both in the United King- 
dom and elsewhere. 

Many regions in the United 
Kingdom and the United States 
which do have incidence rates 
higher than the average have no 
nuclear installations in the vicin- 
ity. An extensive study in the 
United States showed a small but 
statistically significant negative 
correlation with natural back- 
ground (the higher the back- 
ground, the lower the incidence 
rate). 

These and many other facts 
must be explained before Mr 
Jones's assertions are supportable. 
Yours faithfully,

Mr Olof Palme 

From Mr Edward Heath, MP for 
Old Bexley and Sidcup (Conser- 
vative) 

Sir, There is one statement in your 
obituary of Olof Palme (Match 3) 
which cannot pass uncorrected. 
You write. “The Brandt Commis- 
sion was set up by the Socialist 
International in 1976. and under 
its aegis Palme led a delegation to 
southern Africa in the following 
year”. There is no truth whatso- 
ever in this statement. 

The Brandt Commission, or the 
Independent Commission on 
International Development Is- 
sues, to give it its full title, was set 
up at the instigation of Mr Robert 
McNamara, the then Chairman of 
The World Bank. He invited Willy 
Brandt to establish a balanced 


commission composed of mem- 
bers from both the developed and 
the developing countries and 
drawn from all political parties. 

It was. as its title denotes, 
independent of all other 
organisations, including after its 
establishment in December 1977 - 
not 1976 - The World Bank. The 
only visit of the Commission to 
Africa was to Mali early in 1978 
and then it was led. as usual by 
Willy Brandi himself. 

This in no way detracts from the

Move to Rome 

From the Chairman of Church 
Society 

Sir, Mr Longley’s report (March 4) 
on the Church Society's decision 
to consider the establishment of a 
continuing Church of England 
failed to point out a vital proviso. 
This was, “If and when it is 
proposed that practical steps 
should be taken to implement the 
proposals of the ARCIC (Anglo- 
Roman Catholic International 
Commission) final report ...” 

In other words it would be 
necessary to encourage a continu- 
ing Church of England if it were to 
be decided, for example, that the 
authoritative universal primacy of 
the see of Rome were acceptable: 


that the Pope bas the right “in 
special cases to intervene in the 
affairs of a diocese"; that the Pope 
can express “definitive 
judgements" on the doctrine and 
ethics of the Church: and if ail 
Anglicans were committed to the 
acceptance of views on the Eu- 
charist and the ministry which are 
novel to the formularies of the 
Church of England. 

But we have a good hope that 
the members of the Church of 
England will not allow such a 
disaster to occur.. 

Yours faithfully.

Hard to grasp 

From Mr G. N. D. Smith 
Sir. The Reverend M. P. R. 
Unskill (March 4) fails to point 
out the advantages of modem 
wrappings. When I and my friends 
go caving we each take a M**s Bar, 
nicked inside helmet or oversuit, 
as food in case of emergency. 

In our demanding sport the 
climbing, wriggling and heal of 
exertion combine to melt and 


mash our rations, no matter how 
(hev are carried. 

All loo often the old-style 
wrapper would split, smearing 
clothing and caver with chocolate, 
the bar ending up covered with 
gritty mud. We have yet to 
experience this with the new 
packets. 

Yours faithfully.

Teaching of English 

From Professor L J. Herbst 
Sir, The concern about the usage 
of English, expressed by Professor 
E. H. Brown and others (February 
25) echoes views which have been 
voiced for over three decades. 

A foundation in grammar and 
syntax does not, by itself, lead to 
effective, communication. Nor is 
the power of language implanted 
by precision in teaching, or re- 
flected by precision of expression. 
It requires an ability to reach 
ordinary people, and an insight 
into the social setting which 
includes the matter at issue, but 
also extends beyond it, 

What is needed is an obligatory 
broadening at the 16+ and 18+ 
examination levels, including, at 
the 16+ stage, English, human- 


ities. and social sciences. To be 
effective the revised examination 
packages must be stipulated for 
entry to degree studies; such a 
situation already exists in the USA 
and in western Europe. 

In the USA, a nation second to 
none in engineering prowess, 
humanities and social studies are 
included in strength in their 
engineering degrees, which build 
on a much broader educational 
base than ours. Two pivotal 
reports on engineering education, 
by H. P. Hammond, of Pennsylva- 
nia State College, published in 
1940 and 1944, placed humanities 
and social sciences on a par with 
scientific and engineering fun- 
damentals and pressed for their 
inclusion in substance within the 
curriculum. 


This recommendation was 
acted on by many institutions. It 
gained virtually universal accep- 
tance in J973, when the prede- 
cessor of the Accreditation Board 
for Engineering and Technology 
(ABET) set the minimum amount 
of studies in humanities and social 
sciences for the standard four-year 
engineering degree at half a year in 
specified subjects. 

If and when a reform of the 1 6+ 
and 18+ examinations comes 
about, the acquisition of adequate 
communication skills will largely 
take care ofitself. 

Yours faitfcfollv.

MARCH 10 1966 

Not a thundering leaden rather 
an admonitory one in the run-up 
to the general election of March 
31, when Labour increased its 
overall majority from four to 96, 
The article was reproduced in the 
Daily Mail, Daily Minor and 
Evening News: an avalanche of 
letters was received and a few m 
dozen were printed. Total UK 
registered unemployment was 
390,000 (1.6 per cent); the £ stood 
at 82. 79 and was devalued in 
November, 1967 to $2.40. 


WHY THESIS 
WEAK 

The economists and financial 
technicians have their oum learned 
and to themselves no doubt lucid 
reasons why the £ is weak in the 
markets of the world For the 
ordinary reader they can be stated 
much more simply. 

The £ is weak 

because Britain is living beyond 
her means: 

because neither the Labour Gov- 
ernment nor the Bank of England 
nor tbe British people overcame 
the crisis a year ago; the foreign 
lenders did so; 

because Britain is still so heavily 
in debt abroad; _ 

because Government spending 
abroad goes on rising; 

because no Government has the 
courage to face tbe British people 
with the truth;... 

because full employment has led 
unions to overuse their powers and 
employers to underuse their labour; 

because British industry has 
continuously lost its share of world 
markets; 

because whenever tbe mildest 
deflation begins to work, it is 
discontinued before it can even 
half finish its job; 

because extra leisure is put 
before extra effort by too many 
people in all classes; 

because too many working hours 
are turned into gambling hours; 

because money is regarded by too 
many people of all classes as 
something to be got or won rather 
t.han earned;... 

because Britain, never having 
been defeated, still refuses to see 
she is up against it; 

because the world fears that 
devaluation will ultimately be cho- 
sen as an alternative to deflation, 
and the world knows this will not 
solve Britain's long-term problem; 

because while Prance, Germany, 
and Italy have had their “economic 
miracles”. Britain has as yet not 
shown the willingness or the 
capacity to make the effort to 
achieve her own "miracle”; 

because in all too many cases 
Britain loves the old instead of the 
new, seeks reasons not to do things 
ratter than to do them; 

because too many managements 
have been supine or unimaginative; 

because the change from privi- 
lege to talent has been too slow in 
all too many board rooms; 

because there is on both sides of 
industry still too much hankering 
after restriction and too little 
eagerness for competition; 

because in the last analysis 
economics is a matter of human 
nature and not of formulas; no 
country can be saved if its people 
will not save themselves: 

because for twenty years leader- 
ship has been lacking; soft words 
have been substituted for hard 
facta; exhortation has never been 
followed by deeds; rights have 
come before responsibilities; the 
national philosophy has been all 
take and no give; 

because the world knows that, 
however slow the descent, the 
abyss is still at the end of the road. 

The £ could be strong if the 
British people had the ears to hear, 
the eyes to see, and the will to 
recover their native sense and 
energy. They haw done it time and 
again in wars; why can they not do 
it just once in peace? This is what 
the general election should be 
about 


Sunday trading 

From Fr B. J. Eager 
Sir. Having moved my Sunday 
evening Mass to Saturday eve- 
ning. I now wonder how far 1 have 
changed completely the nature of 
Saturday for the 250 or so people 
who regularly attend. I suspect 
that some of them may have been 
shopping before they come. 

It does not seem to affect the 
apparent quality of their worship. 
Jn fact, they sing considerably 
better than those who attend on 
Sunday morning, and the general 
atmosphere is certainly more vi- 
brant than it ever was on Sunday 
evening. Perhaps it is that having 
sampled Mammon in the market 
place and superstore, they fed the 
need for God even more.

Enter, a bear 

From Mrs Philippa Russell 
Sir, Can it be. to answer Ivan 
Stringer (March 3). that as this 
March came in like a polar bear it 
will go out like a Paddington 
( frequently to be seen wearing 
Wellington boots)?

waddle of a penguin.

Clifford Longley 


Marcos lesson for S Africa 


The overthrow of ihe Marcos regime in 


the Philippines has been a dramatic 
note or s 


example of a Christian church working 
as an agent of non-violent social and 
political change in favour of democracy 
and human rights, which is likely to 
become a text-book case for future 
reference, not least in South Africa. 

That Cardinal Jaime Sin can visit 
Europe shortly afterwards, as he is now 
doing, is a measure of die speed with 
which peace has returned lo his country. 
His absence from Manila so soon also 
symbolizes his church's desire not to 
“play politics” although it has the 
opportunity and prestige to do so. 

He has resisted the temptation to 
invest the new Aquino regime with the 
status of an officially approved church 
party, as if they were latter-day Chris- 
tian Democrats. The continental Euro- 
pean churches did not have such 
hesitations after the Second World Wan 
it seemed reasonable at the time to 
promote the revival of post-war demo- 
cratic politics by supporting the emer- 
gence of Christian Democrat parties, 
but it may not have served the health of 
the body politic in the long run, nor the 
interests of churches themselves. 

The legacy of that period in Europe is 
in contrast to the pattern set more 
recently, the Philippines included, of 
official church neutrality in party 
political debate. Until shortly before the 
election, indeed. Cardinal Sin bad been 
saying that the church was prepared to 
work in “critical solidarity” even with 


Marcos, implying a deliberate refusal to 
a prefere 


state a preference between rival parties 
at that stage. 

In Nicaragua a similar desire for party 
political detachment has led to the 
suspension of those priests serving in 
the government This is a significant 
shift towards the Anglo- American pat- 
tern of the relationship between 
churches and parties. 

The difference is that Anglo-Ameri- 
can churches could not exert much 


party political influence even if they 
wanted to. Their reluctance to try to 
change the government is partly a 
reflection of their inability to do so. 

It is also a deliberate choice, arising 
from certain assumptions about the 
demarcation between politics and reli- 
gion in a liberal democracy. Those 
assumptions are shared by the politi- 
cians, for they are sharp to react 
whenever churchmen seem to be tres- 
passing controversially into the 
politican arena. ' 

The electorate makes these assump- 
tions too. There would be outrage if the 
Archbishop of Canterbury, the Cardinal 
Archbishop of Westminster, and the 
Moderator of the Free Church Federal 
Council used one of their occasional 
joint statements on social issues to 
commend one party to the voters at the 
expense of the others. 

The churches have taken to liberal 
democracy, and even talk at times as if 
no other system could possibly by 
tolerated, rather forgetting their own 
history. 

Nevertheless there is a price tag. The . 
often discussed phenomenon of 
“secularization” is nqtjust about the 
contraction of the influence of the 
churches, but even more about the 
expansion of the influence of politics. 
As the “will of God” retreats as an 
arbiter of public morality and culture 
the “will of the people” replaces iL 
What is right becomes synonymous 
with what is lawful. 

This is exactly what is happening in 
the civil law of marriage in Britain, and 
when the Lord Chancellor clashed with 
the Bishop of Birmingham over divorce 
law reform, as happened not long ago, 
they were at the exact interface of these 
two principles. 

Thus there is an irony in the 
Philippine church's invocation of “peo- 
ple power” to bring down Marcos. For 
“people power” is also likely eventually 
to demand abortion and divorce law 


reform, which the church will presum- 
ably fight. 

The ultimate model of the separation 
of church and state is the American one, 
where the greatest liberal democracy in 
the world is also the country with the 
strongest sense that religion is a private 
and personal matter - what used robe 
called the “privatization" of religion 
before the word was given other uses. 

In such a climate varieties of religion 
most suited to it are likely to thrive: it is 
no coincidence that the private and 
personal salvation offered by born- 
again Christianity is on its element 
there. At most, the churches are allowed 
to venture opinions on the issues of the 
day, but those who emphasize a soda! 
Gospel are in a state of perpetual 

frustration. 

The British have less appetite for the 
intense private experience associated 
with being bom again, but tbe British 
churches are in not much less of a 
predicament. 

Having conceeded autonomy to the 
democratic political process, they are 
caught by the inevitable consequence, 
secularization and tbe sense of their 
own irrelevance. Their decline may be 
less their fault than they tend to think. 

Nevertheless liberal democracy is the 
only system likely to support those 
hu man rights which the churches 
themselves would regard as paramount. 
But with “Christian values” guaranteed 
by the law and constitution, their public 
concerns must begin to look more 

marginal. 

Cardinal Sin may envy the English 
churchmen be has been meeting this 
weekend that their problem of tbe 
moment is the Sunday opening of shops 
and not the torture of political prison- 
ers. But there is nodoubt which of them 
is the more “relevant” to the immediate 
needs of their people, litis is a paradox 
which religious institutions in a liberal 
secular democracy have not yet begun 
to solve.

Plans to convert the Dandey 
Mausoleum at Cobham, Kent, 
into a house have been given 
tbe go-ahead by Mr Kenneth 
Baker, Secretary of State for 
the Environment (Charles 
Knevitt, Our Architecture 
Correspondent, writes). 

Proposals (shown top) pre- 
pared for the Earl of Dandey 
by Mrs Jane Wade and Mr 
John Sell of Sell Wade 
Postins, were submitted to 
Gravesend Borough Council In 
1983 and a public inquiry was 
held the following year. The 
building, pictured as it is 
today, is the target of vandal- 
ism. 

The inspector accepted that 
“the building is too important 
to be allowed to degenerate 
into a ruin, and ~ that the only 
reasonable prospect of protect- 
ing the building is to have 
someone in permanent resi- 
dence on the site.”

Judge to deliver 
Reith lectures 


Lord McCluskey. the Scot- 
tish judge and Solicitor Gener- 
al for Scotland in the last 
Labour Government, is to 
deliver the 1986 BBC Reith 
lectures. 

He is the first judge to give 
the lectures and has chosen 
the title “Law, Justice and 
Democracy” for his series of 
six talks which begins on 
Radio 4 in November. 


Lord McCluskey will con- 
sider how the need to preserve 
the independence of Judges 
can be reconciled with tbe 
need, in a democracy, to hold 
those who exercise power 
responsible to those affected 
by it. 


Lord McCluskey plans to 
consider the role of judges, 


acting with and without janes, 
in developing and applying 
civil and criminal law in the 
United Kingdom. 

He intends to examine the 
qualificatons and experience 
that judges bring to their task, 
tbeir techniques, the extent of 
the discretion afforded to 
them and the factors that 
influence how they exercise 
their responsibilities. 


He also plans to examine 
the role of the jury and the 
arguments for extending tbe 
power of the courts, whether 
by enacting a Bill of Rights or 
by changing the form of 
legislation, with a view to 
securing justice which is swift- 
er, cheaper and more obvious- 
ly in accord with the spirit of 
the law. 


Lord McCluskey is a Sena- 
tor of the College of Justice in 
Scotland and will speak in a 
personal capacity. He wil be 
the 39th Reith lecturer.

Science report 


New licence likely for interferon drug to fight cancer 


After a hesitant start, the future looks 
promising for a new generation of anti-cancer 
drugs, based on the interferon family of agents, 
and other similar molecules. They are sub- 
stances produced normally by the body daring 
a virus infection. 

After successful trials in treating an 
uncommon form of leukemia with interferon 
extracts, tbe Committee for Safety of Medi- 
cines has approved the nse of two versions of 
interferon in Britain for this particular 
disorder, known as hairy cell leukemia. 

The licences are for Kir by-Warrick Pharma- 
ceuticals (the UK end of the Schering-Plaugh 
drug company) and Wellcome Biotechnology. 
A third approval should be issued this week to 
Hofljnann-La Roche. 

A number of cancers are being treated with 
interferon in clinical trials by international 
teams. 

One of these groups is at tbe Royal 
Postgraduate Medical School, Hammersmith 
Hospital, London, where Professor Karel 
Sicora said: “Over the next ten years the best 


By Pearce Wright, Science Editor 


approach to cancer treatment could come from 
the nse of natural biological preparations. 
They would be used in conjunction with other 
therapies.” 

Dr Sicora. who is professor of oncology, 
said: “We do not know- bow interferon stops tu- 
mours growing. The mechanism is being 
investigated in the laboratory'' 

“When it is understood it might be possible 
to select which of more than 30 interferons is 
best for a specific treatment. Or the research 
might show that only a small part of an 
interferon molecule is involved in stopping 
to mo in' growth. That could lead to prepara- 
tions which were simpler to produce.” 

Interferon is secreted naturally by tbe white 
blood cells of the body during a virus infection. 
Bat the normal white ceils wfll not grow outside 
the body. 

So although interferon and its anti-viral 
properties were discovered nearly 30 years ago, 
by Dr A tick Isaacs and Dr Jean Lindenmann, 
at the National Institute for Medical Research, 



London, there was no way of translating the 
finding into a treatment for virus diseases. 

In perhaps the longest development pro- 
gramme for any drag, three routes were 
eventually established to make the substance. • 
Limited and expensive amounts became 
available in Scandinavia from tbe late 1960s, 
following a method perfected in research for 
the Finnish Red Cross by extracting interferon 
from donated blood. 

The method now providing the hugest 
amounts, of what is regarded as natural 
product, was invented by WeUcome Biotech- 
nology to obtain Weflferoo. 

The Wellcome scientists found a human cell 
type called a lymphoUastoid. It both generates 
interferon and gr ow s in fermentation. The 
reason why these types of cells grow in culture 
is because they are Hones of a tumour cell 
They are called Namalwa cells, named after 
the young girl from which the originals were 
obtained. They were treated to render them 
harmless. 


However, the clones stQI produce die same 
mixtare oTniolecnles as the natnval white odlsj 
in the body to which they are similar. A series 
of purification steps extracts the alpha-l 
interferon molecule from the mixture. There 
are at least 16 members of the alpha-type in' 
that mixture. 

The third route, used by Erby-Warrick, can 
single out a specific alpha-interferon molecule. 
The one for which approval has been given for 
treating leukemia is railed Intron A. The same I 
substance is undergoing trials in three otherf 
types of tomoar. 

The process for obtaining Intron A is an 
application of the recombinant DNA approach 
to genetic engineering. 

ft means that tbe gene responsible fori 
instructing a white Mood ce& to produce 
interferon has been snipped biochemically] 
from the ce!L That gene is transferred to a; 
harmless strain of bacteria, which is grown in 
fermentation tanks. As it grows it produces tbe| 
interferon molecule, which is again separated] 
by a series of purification steps. 


OBITUARY 

GEORGIA O’KEEFFE 
Pioneering American 
abstract artist 


•A 


Georgia O’Keeffe, the 
American painter, who otea in 
Santa Fe, New Mexico, on 
March 6, at the age of 9V 
spent much ofher working m* 
at the centre of the contro ver- 
syover American modernism; 
but she hersrifhelonged to nd 
school and developed her own 
style in virtually complete 
disregard of the work jam 
ideas of her husband. Alfred 
Stieglite,. and those around 
him. ; 

O’Keeffe had an improba- 
ble background for an Ameri- 
can artist. She was bom an a_ 
fonn in Sun Prairie, Wiscon- 
sin, and had no contact with 
the arts until the age of 15, 
when her family moved to 
Williamsburg, VHgjnia. 

She studied there and at tbe 
Art Institute. Chicago, before 
going to New York. She won 
various prizes; but discour- 
aged by formal training, .she 
gave up painting entirely in 
favour of commercial art, 
until persuaded to teach m the . 
University of Virginia and at 
Amarillo, Texas, where she 
first encountered the evoca- 
tive, barren landscapes so - 
important to her later work. 

In 1916 her career took a 
sew turn when she went to 
study with Arthur Dow at. 
Columbia University. Dow 
was much concerned with 
abstracting design along lines 
suggested oy Far Eastern art. 
Under his influence she, too, 
began to produce abstract 
drawings in charcoal, em- 
bodying shapes suggestive of 
the animal and plant world. 

She also started to work in 
watercolours, and this first 
brought ber into contact with 
Alfred Stiegtitz who exhibited 
it in his innovative and influ- 
ential 291 Gallery. 

She soon gave up teaching 
altogether ana devoted herself 
to her art. Though from then ' 
on one of the central members 
of the group around Stieglitz, 
with whom she held many 
principles in common, she. 
always adhered strictly to the 
development of a highly per- 
sonal style. 

In 1922 she had her first 
one-man show at the Ander- 
son Galleries, New York, and 



in 1924 she married Suegife, 

. From that point there was a 
me thodical evolution of he 
own an and a . gradual 
recognition ofher viral robin 
the development of American 

modernism: , this was 
signalled by retrospectives# 
the Chicago Art Institute - S# 
1943, the Museum ofModera 
Art, New York, . in 1946, ami 
many more. • 

O'Keeffe's work built 
steadily 6a the abstract 
drawings made at her second 
beginning in 1916; though all 
her paintings 'were closely 
based on observable phenom- 
ena is the world around her. 
Others, in her . Predskmist, 
Cubo-ReaHst manner, derived 
fromhighly simplified obser- 
vation of already geometrical 
fortes taken from nature - 
In the early 1930s rite foist 
became fascinated by bones, 
arid as the’ decade processed, 
maeasrugly bY thesktdl. often . 
almost surreausticafly treated^ 


In 1943 she' began another 

"series of bone- pictures, this 
time- inspired by the pelvis 
and the characteristic holes in 
its bones- ‘ *. 

If there was any significant 
development m her work, it 
was in the directum of greater 
abstraction, and yet there was 
always a sense -of retailed 
links with the ; organic uni- 
verse. 


In recent years OTCeefle 
had been re-discovered My 
feminist art criticism; but her 
art continued to reject any 
pandering^© fashion.

REAR-ADMIRAL WS. 
CUNNINGHAM 


Rear-Admiral Winfield 
Scott Cunningham, who died 
on March 3, in Memphis, 
Tennessee, at the age of 86, 
commanded the American 
forces who made a short-lived 
but spirited defence pf Wake 
Island, in the catastrophic 
early -days of the Japanese 
offensive in the Pacific in 
1941. 


Cunningham, a naval avia- 
tor, had been transferred to 
Wake Island only a week 
before ibe.Japanese attack on 
Pearl Harbor, and he took 
command of a small force of 
US marines, seamen and civil- 
ian construction workers, 
whose makeshift, armament 
included guns removed from 
scrapped battleships, a few 
machine guns and a half- 
dozen outmoded F4F fighter 
planes. 


Nevertheless, when the Jap-, 
anese arrived to invade on 
December 11, the defenders 
repulsed them, sinking two 
destroyers in the process. 

The Japanese subjected 
Wake to continuous air attack 
in subsequent days and on 
December 22 returned with 
stronger forces, effecting, a 
landing at night, Though the 
garrison fought back it was 
eventually compelled to sur-. 
render. . - • 

Cunningham, who spent the 
rest, of the war as a prisoner, 
subsequently served at. the 
Memphis Naval .Air Station 
and retired from the US Navy 
in 1950. “ : V

The Queen’s message 
to the Commonwealth 


€ 


The following is the text of ihe 

Queen’s message to the 
Commonwealth issued today. 
Commonwealth Day- 

With the approach of my 60th 
birthday this year, 1 have been 
reflecting on the changes which 
have taken place in the 
Commonwealth daring the 34 
years in which 1 have been its 
bead. 

I have now visited all the 
independent countries of ihe 
Commonwealth ' and I have 
watched and welcomed its 
growth into a group of 49 
nations spread over every conti- 
nent and ocean and containing a 
quarter of the world’s popula- 
tion. 

Each country chooses to be- 
long. because it believes that the 
Commonwealth has a val uabl e 
pan to play in- the world. The 
importance of its role was 
dearly shown at .the. successful 
Heads of Government Meeting 
last. year at Nassau. 

My thoughts are often with 
the millions of young people - 


who make up more than half the 
Commonwealth, especially “on 
this Commonwealth Day. They 
deserve all. tho help ana all the 


opportunities we can give th#m. 

i-To 


. I have a message- for them, 
and n is this. 1 have seen- 
everywhere the eagerness and 
sense of adventure you all share. 
I have been touched by your 
ttmrage and your sympathy for 
those in need,, and by your 
capacity for friendship. ■ 

I ask you now to take every 
chance, to get. ta know 'more 
about the people of other 
Commonwealth countries, .sod 
to mceS them and help thejf, 
whenever you can " •')- 

To gether you can -noT only 
strengthen the spirit of the 
Com monweafth itself, but jbIso 
contribute, by. showing good- 
will, tolerance and undersiand- 
Ing, to- the easing of world 
tensions which threaten afl. peo- 
ples. Between us we ran help to 
ensure that we-, may overcome 
hardship ahd 'poverty and live 
together in peace and freedom.

The format has its merits.

Liza Minnelli 

Palladium 


It was of course a coincidence 
that Liza Minnelli opened her 
British season the same week 
that Frank Sinatra's version of 
Kander and Ebb's “Theme 
from New York, NewYork" 
achieved its unhkdy placing 
in the Top 10 singles chart; a 
coincidence which had not 
escaped Miss Minnelli's atten- 
tion. The song, she declared, 
had been written by “my two 
best friends in the whole 
world, and they wrote it for 
me, specially for me**. So 
saying, she proceeded to belt it 
out with the kind of vigour 
that one suspects would nave 
left Sinatra a little breathless, 
even 30 years ago. 

Proprietorial points at stake 
or not, the extraordinary ener- 
gy and vivacious enthusiasm 
with which Minnelli broached 
her chosen material were, as 
ever, her most distinctive 
characteristics. . 

Wearing a beaded scarlet 
top and black skirt she began 
with the Irving Berlin stan- 
dard “Blue Skies”, which suf- 
fered rough treatment at the 
hands of a ruinous chicken-in- 
foe-basket funk rhythm. A 
medley of sad songs packaged 
Vegas-style within a fragment- 
ed version of Elton John's 
“Sad - Songs (Say So Much)” 
fared little better. 

But . where she had freer 
rein to impose her dominating 
personality on to material of a 


more specifically narrative na- 
ture, she presented a more 
engaging front “I've Cot to 
Get -to London Town”, the 
story of a' travelling .woman 
with gradually loosening mor- 
als, and her tale of Ella Finch, 
a compulsive shoplifter, were 
two of many witty and sharply 
observed vignettes that pro- 
vided a loose theme for the 
show. 

Despite the range of these 
characters — from her friend 
: 1 a with a “relationship” 
to the old marriage 
partner complaining “You’ve 
Let Yourself Go” — they all 
ended up as another part of 
Liza Minnelli rather than vice 
versa Be it the Mad Woman 
of Chaillot, or Mama Rose 
from Gypsy Lee, no matter 
what their origins, they all 
became the same brassy, 
streetwise, saddened but resu- 
ient survivor of bruising emo- 
tional battles; consistently 
more was learnt about the 
narrator than about the sub- 
jects. 

. The expected encore of 
“Cabaret” was revealing for 
its slight but significant 
change of words, Minnelli 
makings very dear announce- 
ment that, unlike her friend in 
die song who died from too 
much pills and liquor, “when I 
go Fm not going lib: Elsie” 
And indeed, whatever Liza 
Minnelli does, she will doubt- 
less do it like Liza Minnelli or 
not at aQ.

Rowan Atkinson: 
The New Revue

After circling his microphone 
with the gait of an atrabilious 
flamingo and firing off an 
opener in the character of a 
vicar bidding a last farewell to 
three members of the congre- 
gation be is heartily glad to be 
laying to rest. Rowan Atkin- 
son then comes downstage to 
greet his fans. How nice, he 
says, to have a few friendly 
words with us, and to be 
normal for a minute or two. 
Meanwhile, his neck is under- 
going violent spasms and his 
arms are trying to detach 
themselves from his body. If 
there is one thing Atkinson 
cannot do, it is to be himself 
onstage. 

Like his 1981 show. The 
New Revue is a gallery of 
grotesques. For each one he 
has a facial mask which 
remains as firmly in place 
throughout the sketch as if 
made of papier mache. There 
is his Eari of Stockton, tongue 
lolling and upper lip drawn 
down over the teeth; there is 
his cribbing exam candidate, 
eyes slyly zipping from side to 
side and blubber lips pushed 
forwards; there is a menagerie 
of winsomely elegant binds 
and fish, and a hobgoblin rock 
star pulverized by his own 
amplifiers. 

His range is as inexaustible 
as a rubber toy that can be

ation Alice, just : premiered 
Item by the National Ballet of 
Canada, is a matter of impor- 
tance to Erik Bruhn's resur- 
gent company, and also to 
Tetley hrmsdtJfis reputation 
as a choreographer has always 
stood far higher in Europe 
than m North America; and 
thus the evident success of 
Alice might serve not so much 
to rehabilitate Tetley’s Ameri- 
can reputation .as to establish 
it. ... 

Always. -an admirer of 
Tetley's talent, I am not 
certain that I see in Alice any 
great advance. But it is car- 
plainly one ofhis better. w orks, 
T a welcome return to form after 
such disappointments as his 
blustery Daphnis and Ckloe 
for the Houston Ballet and an 
obstiiramist Dream Walk eg 
the Shaman for Italy’s Ater- 
balletto, both recently seen in 
NewYork. 

AUce is a memory ballet, 
. and is bound to evoke after- 
images of Tudor and even 
MacMillan. It is a vast dis- 
tance from the Alice in 
Womderland created in 1953 
for Festival Ballet by Michael 
Charaley. from which only the

dEcpened by having Mr Oil-

Caterpillar. However it is in 
the whimsical Carrojiian 
^uns and fauna, rather than 


in the conventional dances 
allotted to the forcedly roman- 
' ticized reality, that Tetley 
scores choreographically. His 
elegantly distraught While 
Rabbit (Owen Montague) and 
foe . March Hare (John AH- 
eyne) are sharply character- 
ized, as are the neurotic Mad 
Hatter (Jeremy Ransom) and 
the oppressed Dormouse (Da- 
vid Allen). Yet where Tetley 
has been most successful of all 
is in his evocation of atmo- 
sphere. 

Alice is one of those ballets 
where the whole is markedly 
more impressive than the sum 
of its pans, and at foe end its 
various planes of memory and 
reality do indeed intermingle 
imo a summery blur of hazy 
memory/ The ballet lingers 
pleasantly, and thoughtfully,

twisted into any shape. But, 
again and again, what comes 
over is a view of the world as a 
classroom under foe control of 
a mad pedagogue. Atkinson's 
authority figures, though they 
may slip into Scots or Geordie 
accents, do not suffer from 
nervous twitches, and speak 
out in bold ringing tones. It is 
those on foe receiving end 
who go into convulsions, and 
they are at their funniest when 
they do not speak at all. 

The almost wordless maths 
exam, with Atkinson simulat- 
ing a bluebottle to distract bis 
fellow candidates and then 
swatting foe invisible insect 
when canghi out. is one 
marvellously sustained exam- 
ple. Another is his ordeal as a 
tube traveller assaulted by an 
invisible man in foe next seat 
and favouring foe other pas- 
sengers with a sickly smile 
when released from being held 
upright with two unseen fin- 
gers up his nostrils. Some- 
times (as in that sketch) the 
worm turns; and, when it 
comes to dialogue, his writers 
(Vic Curtis and Ben Elton) are 
dab hands at double-edged 
compliments and poisoned 
bouquets. In one such re- 
vengeful flight, Atkinson 
comes on to receive an acting 
prize on behalf of an envied 
colleague and launches into a 
snarling massacre of~West End 
theatregoing that develops 
well beyond the complaints of 
an underdog. 

Here, if anywhere, be is 
speaking directly and knows 
what he is talking about 


Where he (ouches on politics, 
though, with limp, mindless 
one-liners, the show really 
does descend to the fifth form 
level; and finally touches rock 
bottom in foe famous roll-call 
sketch which be has now 
disastrously re-written entire- 
ly in ruderics. 

He is partnered by Angus 
Deayton, who plausibly intro- 
duces himself as Atkinson's 
bodyguard and foes sinks into 
the role of a malcontent feed. 
Mr Deayton is an able come- 
dian and more could have 
been made of bis mutinous 
feelings towards the star. As it 
is, he is mainly limited to 
playing the blank-faced 
stooge, thus underlining foe 
hoarily conventional form of 
Robin !e Fevre’s production, 
which consists of isolated 
sketches terminating in 
punch-lines and blackouts. 
This might still do for a full 
company revue, but a two- 
man show demands some- 
thing more fluid. 

Still, as ever, you are finally 
left with foe unarguable fact of 
Atkinson's comic indestructi- 
bility, and of his immense 
skill; whether performing a 
news summary for foe deaf, 
illustrated with home-made 
punning sign-language, each 
gesture as witty and economi- 
cal as a one-line drawing; or 
coming on as an Indian waiter 
serving a party of nine beer- 
sodden drunks, each one as 
visible as in a Bill Tidy 
cartoon.

Lontano /Martinez 
St John’s 

This was the riskiest of foe 
current bountiful season of 
BBC Invitation Concerts, of- 
fering four new or newish 
pieces by young or youngish 
composers. A success rate of 
25 per cent is probably about 
par for the course on these 
occasions: it was just a pity 
that the best piece came first, 
and that after foe inventive 
high spirits of Martin Butler's 
Concertino there was rather a 
long dying fall. But at least 
expectations were kept high by 
the sympathetic and wide- 
awake musicianship of 
Lontano under their tireless 
conductor Odaline de la Mar- 
tinez. 

Butler's piece well repaid all 
their efforts. Commissioned 
by foe London Sinfonietta, 
and scored for the basic 
Sinfonietta ensemble, it spins 
with characterful solos for 
everybody, usually couched 
within a complex interweave 
that is perfectly imagined. The 
ideas grow towards clarity and 
definition, except for a 
Messiaen-style last trump on 
the trombone. There is a touch 
of Birtwistle in the mix too.

Mahler's Ninth Symphony on 
its own makes for a short 
concert, but foe work itself is 
so rich musically, so com- 
pletely achieved, that it effort- 
lessly stands by itself. Or 
should do. Having tried to 
respect Rudolf Barshai's view 
of it on his on terms. I am 
bound to say that this became 
increasingly difficult as his 
performance went on, and 
finally impossible. 

You could tell from Bar- 
shai's bride, matter-of-fact 
treatment of foe symphony’s 
very opening bars that he was 
not going to hang about 
unduly: and to start with it 
seemed that his very direct. 
no-nonsense, almost Hinde- 
mithian approach to Mahler’s 
complex first-movement 
structure might yield genuine 
if unusual dividends. But, by 
the lime we were into foe 
development, there could be 
only one conclusion; no way. 
There seemed to be no aware- 
ness whatever of the music’s 
ebb and flow, of its subtle 


and maybe some Boulez, but 
foe work has a life and a 
brilliance of its own. Butler is 
still completing his studies at 
Princeton, but on this evi- 
dence he has linle to learn 
about orchestration, or about 
creating a multi-faceted musi- 
cal movement that runs and 
dances. 

It did show up quite baldly 
foe dim level of imagination 
in two other pieces on the 
programme: these are perhaps 
better left in foe obscurity 
which they did so little to 
trouble. But Roger Marsh's 
Song of Abigail had its mo- 
ments, chiefly thanks to foe 
presence of Frances Lynch as 
narrator-heroine. 

Marsh seems to be some- 
where near the beginning of a 
project to set foe Bible, and 
here he casts a cynical eye on 
one of foe less admirable 
episodes in foe life of King 
David. He makes a very little 
music go a long way, and foe 
odd reproductions of Anglican 
psalm-chanting are not as 
funny as they ought to be. But 
there was certainly charm in 
Miss Lynch's amused, demot- 
ic account of Abigail’s dubious 
actions. 

Paul Griffiths 


inter-action of elements, of its 
underlying sense of appalling 
crisis. The wonderful horn- 
call in foe coda had been so 
erroneously set up by the 
previus 20 -odd minutes that 
even this usually magical mo- 
ment went for nothing — a 
shame, because it was superb- 
ly played. 

The two basically anti-ex- 
pressive inner movements not 
surprisingly came across 
much better, with an impres- 
sively trenchant Rondo-Bur- 
leske. But Barshai's attitude to 
foe final adagio can only be 
called an aberration. 

It must be slow; Mahler’s 
indications in foe score are 
quite specific. Barshai's basic 
tempo was so quick as to make 
nonsense of the music on its 
own terms (phrasing and har- 
mony hopelessly undercut), to 
say nothing of its context 
within the symphony as a 
whole. The pity was that some 
consistently controlled and 
beautiful orchestral playing — 
lovely divided strings in foe 
closing bars, for instance - 
found itself being so sadly 
mis-applied. 

Malcolm Hayes 


Joaquin Rodrigo's position as 
Spain's first man of music 
remains unchallenged, yet per- 
haps after all he is more of a 
patchy composer than his high 
reputation suggests. Unques- 
tionably so, in fact, if the 
contents of this recital, the 
third event in London’s ex- 
travagant celebrations of his 
eighty-fifth birthday, are to be 
taken as representative, 
though we would do well to 
remember that Britten, for 
example, arguably our closest 
national equivalent, could oc- 
casionally produce some fairly 
ordinary music. 

One of the misses here was a 
seemingly unending sequence 
of Canciones valencianas , ar- 
rangements of folk-tunes for 
violin and piano made in 
1982, where too often the 
piano accompaniments were 
naive and prosaic, laden with 
much dull and rather obvious 
sequential writing. Another 
was Serenaia al alba del dia 
for violin and guitar, again 
from 1982, whose dry sparse- 
ness recalls foe Stravinsky of 
the 1920s only without foe 
same tartness. 

Yet in 1966 Rodrigo's abili- 
ty to charm was as great as 
ever, as the engaging Sonata 
pimpante for violin and piano 
from that year demonstrated. 
The central Adagio wove foe 
same sort of spells as that 
famous slow movement from 
a certain Concierto de 
Aranjues, while there was a 
nice sense of contrast in the 
first movement and the finale 
purveyed an attractive line is 
sharp, quasi-bitonal pranks. 
Agustin Leon Ara and Eugene 
de Canck played with the 
utmost sympathy and skill. 

Earlier the guitarist Pepe 
Romero cleverly prefaced four 
of foe master’s works with a 
parallel sequence that pointed 
out their obvious antecedents. 
Thus foe suavely done Fanta- 
sia by Luis de Milan exploited 
many of the same technical 
devices as Rodrigo’s Tiento 
antiguo. while Albeniz’s- 
“Smolla" painted a local pic- 
ture. and did so rather more 
exuberantly than Rodrigo's 
serenely beautiful Junto al 
Generalife, Similarly two clas- 
sical works, Fernando Sort 
Introduction, Theme and 
Variations and Giuliani's 
Grand Overture, provided 
some sort of link with 
Rodrigo's suite Tres pequenas 
piezas and another crisp and 
witty guitar sonata. Romero 
played everything with a 
heartfelt dedication that was 
obviously his persona] hom- 
age:

34%. That’s the profit increase Hanson 
Trust is forecasting for its current financial 
year. 

From £252.8 million in 1985 to not less 
than £340 million. On the face of it, great 
news for Hanson’s shareholders. 

But where will these increased profits 
come from? 

Well, we estimate that around 20% 
(some £52 million) will come from interest 
savings arising from last year’s rights issue. 
In other words, a once-and-for-all gain paid 
for by investors. 

Profits, certainly But are these profits 

from organic business growth? 

Out with the scissors. Lop off 20%. 


That leaves 14%. Still a relatively 

healthy increase. But from where? 

We estimate that £32 million should 
come from the first-time contribution to 
Hanson profits from SCM - a company 
bought during this financial year. 

Once again, not profits from organic 
growth but from acquisition. 

Bang goes another 12% or so. 


And what are we left with? An increase 
of less than 2%. Oh dear. 

Under 2% of organic business growth. 

What’s that? Inflation? You mean it

US NOTEBOOK 


Volcker 
abandons 
defence 
of dollar 

From Maxwell Newton 
NewYork 

The derision by Mr Paul 
Volcker, the US central 
chairman* to cat the discount 
rate to 7 per cent — following 
Japan, Germany, France 
others — means that he ins 

abandoned the attempt to lndd 

uptbedoUar. ™ 

The dollar has now been 
devalued by between2Qand 25 
per cent since February butt 

S . but the trade deficit in 
»ry this year was still a 
record. 

Despite the devaluation to 
date, import prices hare hard- 
ly risen. Exporting nations 
such as Japan and Germany 
have enjoyed huge reductions 
in yen an d mark import prices, 
allowing them to maintain 
landed prices at about pre- 
September 1985 levels.. 

The continuation of enor- 
mous trade deficits in 1986 is 
assured. In the immediate 
future the knowledge that the 

will stimulate ordering of hd- 
ports and delays in receipts 
from exports. 

The domestic economic «tn- 
ation m America certainly 
justified toe lower discount 
rate and the wholesale reduc- 
tion in toe prime rate from 9.5 
per cent to 9 per cent 
In January retail sales, 
industrial production, durable 
goods orders and toe index of 
leading indicators, and now, 
the February anemployinent 
figures, tar eradicated tint the 
monetarist consensus fore- 
cast of a surge hi growth in 
the first quarter of 1986 has 
been sadly astray. "

Banks threaten to sue ITC 

continues 



Bankers gave warning yes- 
terday that they win sue toe 22 
members of toe International 
Tm Council and try to prevent 
toem from raising money on 
international markets if diplo- 
matic activity over the week- 
end fails to resurrect an agreed 
solution to toe tin crisis. 

Hie diplomatic activity was 
concentrated on Indonesia, 
whose derision on Friday 
morning not to support toe 
TinCo plan caused the talks to 
collapse. 

Mr Peter Lai, toe Malay sian 
chairman of toe ITC, and toe 
British Government have 
been applying intense political 
pressure oh-. Indonesia, the 
world's second biggest tin 
producer. 

ITC delegate sources said 
that they should know at this 
morning’s meeting of the 
council whether Jakarta had 
changed its mind. They will 
also discover whether Thai- 
land. which asked for more 


By Michael Prest, Financial Correspondent 


- lime to consider toe TinCo 
plan, will support it 

The ITC sources admitted, 
, however, that there was only a 
5 per cent chance that TinCo 
could be saved. 

The plan was for the compa- 
ny to take over toe ITCs 
obligations of 85.000 ions of 
tin, in return for which the 
ITC would be relieved of its 
gross debts of £900 million. 

If no agreement is reached 
by Wednesday, when the Lon- 
don Metal Exchange is due to 
try to clear toe outstanding 
contracts between members, 
all realistic hope for TinCo 
will have gone, the ITC 
sources said. 

Sir Adam Ridley, a director 
of Ham bros Bank and spokes- 
man for toe 1 6 bank creditors 
owed £350 million by toe ITC, 
said: "If there is no solution 
we shall sue. There could be 
common grounds on which 
we could sue together and 
have a common interest in 
doing so.” 


Sir Adam pointed out that 
failure by ITC members to 
meet their debts could trigger 
cross default clauses in loan 
agreements. Banks would also 
examine whether to block 
attempts by countries they 
regarded as culprits to raise 
money on the Euromarkets. 
Malaysia, Thailand, and Indo- 
nesia are the most likely 
targets, he said. . 

But ITC sources said that 
council members were confi- 
dent of their immunity against 
prosecution. “Members are 
almost willing the bonks to sue 
so that they can test whether 
they are immune," the sources 
said. 

If as seems most likely, 
TinCo is stillborn, toe ITC 
will not know what to do. Its 
enabling agreement remains 
in force until members decide 
otherwise, but the council has 
almost run out of money. 
About a dozen of its 40 staff 
have been given notice. 


The sources said; "Hie IT C 
is, in legal parlance, a man of 
straw. There's nothing to do 
next because toe member 
countries have categorically 
stated that they want nothing 
to do with it But they can’t 
just walk away. It’s going to be 
a very funny week." One 
crucial unanswered question 
is what will happen to toe tin 
trading contracts made direct- 
ly between the ITC and indi- 
vidual brokers. The LME 
"ring out" at £6,250 a ton 
scheduled for Wednesday will 
only settle deals between ex- 
change members. 

The tin crisis broke on 
October 24 last year when the 
ITC buffer stock said it bad 
run out of money and could 
no longer support the world 
tin price. Tin trading on toe 
LME was immediately sus- 
pended. The LME said at the 
end of last week that it is very 
unlikely that toe tin future's 
contract will be revived. 


Gulliver ‘will not resign’ 


— from 6.6 per cent to 7 J per 
cent. The January growth of 
employment, which had 
seemed to give the 
consensus forecast some 
semblance of reality,, was 
downgraded from a completely 
unrealistic 566,900 growth to 

421.000. 

lire Increase m payroll em- 
ployment in February was 

226.000, much mime with the 
monthly rise which in 1985 
produced the lowest rate of 
economic growth since the 
recession year of 1982. 

So Mr Volcker, in cutting 
thediscoant rate has, in effect, 
conceded to his critics io the 
Administration — Mr Janies 
Baker, Secretary to the Trea- 
sury, and in. the Fed Mr 
Preston Martin, (be vice- 
chairman. Represents^ a tra- 
ditionalist fear of inflation, Mr 
Vokfcer has phyed a defensive 
game since July, 1985, when 
he established toe 8 percent 
federal tends policy, . which 
has cautioned until toe recent 
discount rale cnL 

There are no signs of accel- 
erating inflation in America, 
bat the monetarists are cam- 
paigning rigorously on toe 
theme that recent money 
growth, with the devaluation 
of the dollar, must produce 
inflation rising to 7 per cent in 
1987. 

Mr Volcker has Indicated

We. must look forward to 
continuing weakness in the

forecast that the problem of 
the bilateral deficit between 
Japan mid America can be 
resolved only by a rise of the 
yen to 100 against the dollar 
this year or next (as long as 
there is no recession in Ameri-

Mr James Gulliver, chair- 
man of Argyll Group, yester- 
day dismissed weekend press 
speculation that he was about 
to resign following reports that 
certain aspects of his entry in 
Who's Who were misleading. 

Mr Gulliver issued a state- 
ment saying, "One entry in the 
record of my academic and 
business career, relating to a 
degree achieved in 1954, has 
been incorrectly stated. I re- 
gret this error has not beat

Who's Who says Mr Gulli-

Harvard. He did obtain a first 
class honours degree in engi- 
neering from Glasgow Uni- 
versity in 1953 and then a 
Master of Science degree from 
the Georgia Institute ofTech- 
nology in 1954. He spent three 
weeks at. Harvard Business 
School in 1954 on a marketing 
course; • 



James Gulliver: regrets error 
in Who’s Who entry 

Mr David Webster, a direc- 
tor' of Argyll, said Mr 
Gulliver’s' academic record 
was outstanding and the mat- 
ter was not a resigning one. He 
said there had • been press 
articles m the part, which had 
staled Mr Gulliver had a 


Masters degree from Harvard 
Business School, which the 
company had not corrected. 

Argyll's statement contin- 
ued that the company was 
committed to acquiring Dis- 
tillers and building Alp'll into 
a major and successful food 
and drinks group. It would not 
be deflected by attempts to 
divert attention away from toe 
real issues. 

A spokesman for Distillers 
said the story about Mr Gulli- 
ver had not come from the 
official public relations de- 
partment within Distillers. 
The spokesman could not rule 
out that toe information came 
unofficially from someone 
from within DistillersL 

Distillers is concerned that

unofficially spread, could re- 
flect badly on its willingness to 
resort to so-called dirty tricks 
in the what must rate as one of 
the most bitter bid battles seen

Big rise in 
shares 
‘unlikely’ 

- By Sarah Hogg 
Economics Editor 

Equity prices win not rise 
much in 1986-87, according to 
the London Business School's 
Financial Outlook, published 
today. 

The LBS Centre for Fore- 
casting argues that the boost to 
profits from the recent foil in 
the exchange rate was already 
reflected in the stock market 
rise over toe part month. 

Its report points out that 
individuals were net purchas- 
ers of equities in toe second 
quarter of last year for the first 
time since the bottom of the 
market in 1974. But they 
became net sellers in the third 
quarter, a pattern that was 
likely to continue, the report 
argues. 

Financial Outlook singles 
out for comment the "extraor- 
dinarily high" growth in per- 
sonal credit in Britain. 
Personal- sector bank credit, it 
points out, accelerated to a 
21.9 per cent growth rate in 
1985. ifbank loans to building 
sorieities were included. How- 
ever, it believed that toe 
growth of both loans and 


would decline in 1986. 

In a special article two of the 
IBS's authors argue that the 
fall in oil output will have 
little effect on living standards 
in Britain because investment 
at first abroad then at home, 
during the period of-highest 
earnings represented a level of 
saving that will now yield a 
substantial income stream.

Charter urges 
shift to 
jobs strategy 

The Government’s medi- 
um-term financial strategy 
should be replaced fey a medi- 
um-term employment strate- 
gy, toe Charter for Jobs, the 
aft-party pressure group on 
unemployment, says today. 

The Charter, in its latest 
Economic Report, recom- 
mends setting targets for cut- 
ting unemployment, subject to 
keeping inflation down and 
avoiding balance of payments 
pressures. A target could be 
the reduction of unemploy-, 
ment to about 2 mflliwi by 
1990 , while keeping inflation 

in the 3-6 per cent range. 

The Government should 
use all the weapons in its 
control to achieve such a 
reduction, toe Charter says, 
including prices and incomes 
policies, selective employ- 
ment programmes and further 
cub in employers’ National 
i nsura nce contributions. 

Financial markets would 
retain their confidence in a 
Government pursuing such a 
strategy, the Charter's direc- 
tor. Mr Jon Shields, says. ' 


Imps will keep up 
advertising war 


Imperial . Group will today 
tell shareholders that the com- 
pany intends “to stick to its 
guns’* in its advertising cam- 
paign against Hanson Trust, 
despite Hanson's legal actions 
against Imperial's advertise- 
ments. : 

In a letter to shareholders 
Mr Geoffrey Kent, chairman 
of Imperial, will also question 
why Hanson has not informed 
toem of the extent of its 
involvement in South Africa, 
which it says undermines 
Hanson's quality of earnings. 

Hanson's lawyers wrote to 
Imperial last week, saying that 
Hanson's battery business. 
Ever Ready, was heavily rep- 
resented in South Africa and 
that Ever Ready’s South Afri- 
can profits (in rand) and 
British profits were both up in 
toe second half of 1985. The 
31 per cent fell in profits in 
second half 1985, to which 
Imperial drew attention, re- 
sulted from a collapse of the 
rand. 


By Alison Eadie 


Imperial estimates that 
Ever Ready’s South African 
operations would have made 
profits of £1 5 million last year, 
if 1984 exchange rates had 
been used, and claims that 
Hanson has foiled to identify 
the extent of South African 
involvement in the report and 
accounts for the last three 
years. 

Imperial is expected to an- 
nounce this week the sale for 
between £55 million and £60 
million of its Golden Wonder 
crisps and snack foods divi- 
sion. The disposal is being 
made to remove objections by 
the Office of Fair Trading to 
the United Biscuits-Imperial 
merger. The buyer has not yet 
been chosen. 

Representatives of two 
American companies arrived 
in London yesterday to talk to 
Imperial about Golden Won- 
der. Allied- Lyons is the third 
strong contender, and there 
are other hopefrils in the 
wings. 


Inland Revenue muddle 
over BES clearance 

By Lawrence Lever 

The inland Revenue is in re do not qualify under the 


disarray over its provisional 
clearance procedure fin- compa- 
nies seeking finance under the 
Business Expansion Scheme. 

This is potentially damaging 
to investors in BES companies 
who tun tbe ride of not getting 
tax relief if a company subse- 
quently does not qualify under 
the scheme after succeeeding at 
the provisional stage. 

Tbe clearance procedure is 
operated at local inspector level 
but advice issued by toe Inland 
Revenue’s technical divison to 
inspectors on what does or does 
notqualifyappears to have been 
overlooked in certain cases. 

A letter from the technical 
division which has brat passed 
to The Times says “Hotels per 


Business Expansion Scheme." 

The problem is that toe 
income received from letting 
hotel rooms is regarded as 
licence income and, put simply, 
if this income is substantial — 
generally reckoned to mean if it 
exceeds 20 per cent of tbe 
hotel's total income — it does 
not qualify under toe scheme. 

Despite this, Gty and Capital 
Hotels, a Johnson Fry scheme 
looking for £3 million to buy 
and run small London hotels, 
received provisional clearance 
from the local inspector even 
though its prospectus dearly 
states that “there will not 
usually be a restaurant" or 
other “ancillary services which 
increase tariffs substantially”. 


One point 
cut in 
base rates 
expected 

By David Smith 

Economics Correspondent 

The Chancellor of the Ex- 
chequer must overcome sever- 
al hurdles before he can 
deliver a cut in base rates next 
week. But a reduction of a 
point still looks likely. Tbe 
provisional money supply fig- 
ures for February, due out 
tomorrow, must be acceptably 
good if Mr Nigel Lawson is to 
be able to cut rates from 12.5 
per cent and at tbe same time 
claim tha t the Government's 
medium terra financial strate- 
gy is on course. 

Tbe sterling M3 measure of 
money supply, to be reinstated 
in the Budget, is expected to 
have grown by about 1 per 
cent in banking February after 
a rise of just 0,1 per cent in. 
January. 

A stop rise in sterling M3 
as a result of a renewed bank 
lending surge could limit the 
possibilities for reducing rates. 

The main influence will 
continue to be the pound's 
performance. The past fort- 
night has seen extreme volatil- 
ity in the foreign exchange 
markets, with first toe dollar 
and then sterling coming un- 
der severe pressure. 

Despite tbe interest rate 
reductions in West Germany, 
France, The Netherlands, Ja- 
pan and, most importantly, 
the United Slates, last week, 
the pound continued to look 
vulnerable. 

This is mainly due to ner- 
vousness ahead of tbe meeting 
of toe Organization of Petro- 
leum Exporting Countries in 
Geneva, starting on Sunday, 
and uncertai nines about the 
contents of next Tuesday's 
Budget. 

Although the Opec meeting 
is onlflcefy to produce any 
surprises, tbe pound may re- 
quire the extra interest rate 
cushion provided by others* 
reductions while ft is taking 
place. 

In additioa, the foreign 
exchange markets are looking 


Executive Editor Kenneth Fleet 


for a Budget which shows the 
Government sticking rigidly 
to its financial plans. 

This may rule out an in- 
crease in borrowing from the 
£7.5 billion for 1986-87 in 
current plans. However, two 
reports published today sug- 
gest that the Chancellor will 
boost his borrowing in the 
Budget. 

‘ The Lloyds Bank Economic 
Bulletin predicts that a rise in 
toe public sector borrowing 
requirement to £9.5 billion 
will be announced next week 
so that the Chancellor can cut 
personal taxation. Laing & 
Cruickshank. the stockbroker, 
argues, for similar reasons, 
that the PSBR target will be 
raised to £8.5 billion.

Gulf attack on low oil price 

By David Young, Energy Correspondent 

Ministers from six Gulf oil- an unacceptable level,*' the operation by driving down oil 
producing states, meeting in statement said. 

Riyadh, said that oil prices 
had dropped to unacceptable 
levels. 


In a statement, the Gulf Co- 
lion Council said that 
e situation would only im- 
prove through an agreement 
between toe Organization of 
Petroleum Exporting Coun- 
tries (Opec) and non-Opec 
producers on production lev- 
els. 

The six. led by Saudi Ara- 
bia. were meeting at toe 
weekend ahead of next week’s 
full ministerial meeting of 
Opec in Geneva. The oil 
market “had deteriorated to 


Tbe Gulf states have taken 
toe initiative i q trying to fotre 
non-Opec oil producers into 
co-operating on output How- 
ever, so forooly Oman, Egypt, 
Malaysia. Brunei and Mexico 
have accepted invitations to a 
special meeting between Opec 
and non-Opec producers in 
Geneva on March 19. 

Britain and Norway have 
declined toe invitation, so the 
initiative of toe Gulf slates has 
missed the key North Sea 
producers. There are signs that 
some Opec members are be- 
coming restive with toe at- 
tempt to force non-Opec co- 


pnees. 

However, tbe Gulf states, 
including Saudi Arabia, Ku- 
wait. Qatar and toe United 
Arab Emirates, appear to be 
prepared to continue with the 
strategy. 

In the statement, toe Gulf 
Council said: “The current 
situation is harmful to produc- 
ers inside and outside Opec 
and also to consumers in the 
short and long term, so we 
need to bring together all toe 
efforts of producers inside and 
outside Opec." 

To demonstrate its resolve, 
Saudi Arabia will announce a 
Budget today including large 
cuts in spending. 


First things first in 
a tight Budget 


Apart from the persistent lengthening 
of the dole queue, the latest phase oi 
the pre-Budget period has been going 
curiously well for Mr Nigel Lawson. 
First the Westland affair offered 
redder political meat elsewhere, while 
the markets got on with assimilating 
a halving of the oil price. Now, 
thanks to the fall of a few interest-rate 
dominoes in other big economies, the 
Chancellor is rolling towards March 
18 with the interest-rate indicators 
pointing down. 

The fall in oil prices has been so 
great that the time-honoured political 
routine of lowering expectations has 
been achieved with no trouble at all. 
Furthermore, the degree of confusion 
in which this has left the forecasting 
game makes it easier for Mr Lawson 
to produce whatever figures for 
government finance he fancies on 
Budget Day. This confusion seems to 
have scrambled the usual unsolicited 
pre-Budget advice. From the “dry" 
comer. Professor Patrick Minford 
and the Institute of Directors are 
urging lots of lovely Budget give- 
aways; Half the City seems to be 
endorsing higher borrowing; while 
the Confederation of British In- 
dustry, which has so often entered 
into an effective pre-Budget coalition 
with “wet” Tory MPs, favours 
budgetary prudence. 

Of course, Mr Lawson has lost 
most of his scope for income tax cuts. 
Even this change is less of a political 
disaster than it might have been. Mrs 
Thatcher and Mr Lawson have failed 
to sell their tax-cutting strategy to 
their supporters, who axe inclined to 
ask why, with wages racing ahead of 
inflation and unemployment still 
rising, it is sensible to give yet more 
unearned purchasing power to those 
in work, rather than invent new 
programmes to reduce the dole 
queues before the next election. 

A Budget in which the Chancellor 
is due to present long-term proposals 
for personal tax provides an overdue 
opportunity for political salesman- 
ship, at no immediate cost. 

Well, there the Chancellor's silver 
lining ends. The cloud over the oil 
market remains, and the Organiza- 
tion of Petroleum Exporting Coun- 
tries has arranged its next, 
acrimonious talks very awkwardly 
for Mr Lawson. 

However well-prepared the tax- 
payer for meagre tax cuts, the 
expectation that Mr Lawson must be 
preparing for some smart tax juggling 
has increased even as hopes of a 
giveaway Budget receded. 

Meanwhile, Mr Lawson has to sort 
out Britain’s monetary policy. Much 
more interest, of course, now centres 
on his exchange-rate strategy than on 
his domestic monetary targets, but he 
is going to have to produce a new set 
on Budget day. 

Dear little M0 is still behaving 
pretty well; dreadful old sterling M3 


is not The Treasury and the Bank 
have been grooming a new, wider 
money measure, but we are all stuck 
with sterling M3 for 1986-87, and it is 
hard to set a target that will allow in- 
terest rates to fall but yet look 
reasonably disciplinarian. 

As successive Commons audiences 
have demonstrated, however, the 
alphabet of monetary policy is of 
much less interest than the smallest 
of the Chancellor's tax changes. Last 
year's defeat by the pension funds, his 
predecessor's pledge not to repeat a 
windfall raid on bank profits and Mrs 
Thatcher's pledge to leave the struc- 
ture of value-added tax largely un- 
changed have left Mr Lawson a little 
short of options. 

Plainly, there is some mileage to be 
extracted from yet another package of 
modest employment measures 
masterminded by Lord Young. But 
both Mr Lawson and his predecessor 
have presented a “Budget for Jobs” 
too often. Some new combination of 
Mrs Thatcher's theme tune of “popu- 
lar capitalism”, together with tax 
breaks for tbe lower paid, have got to 
be scraped together. 

“Popular capitalism” can come 
quite cheap. A further cut in stamp 
duty might be almost self-financing. 
Further measures to stimulate direct 
share purchases by individuals, at 
work or out of nest-eggs, can be 
introduced within Mr Lawson's lim- 
ited means, particularly if he finds 
some new way of taxing financial 
services. 

But the popularity of such schemes 
could fade if they were introduced in 
a bear market; in the meantime, the 
Government is hooked on its own 
strictures about the need to help the 
lowest paid. Further cuts in National 
Insurance fit this bill, are essential to 
continue the task Mr Lawson began 
last year and are reasonably cheap. 
But the logic of his leader's 
pronouncements also points to cuts 
in the basic rate of income tax. And 
these are much more expensive than 
the Government's usual little in- 
creases in tax allowances. The ob- 
vious compromise — a cut in the 
basic rate, limited to the first few 
hundred pounds of taxable income — 
suffers from the objection that Mr 
Lawson's predecessor chose to abol- 
ish just such a lower-rate tax band. 

There has, therefore, been a nag- 
ging temptation to claw back extra 
tax on cheaper petrol (beyond the 
fivepence needed to match inflation) 
to finance a general cut in tbe rate of 
income tax. It must still be resisted. If 
the Chancellor's last-minute sums 
look that bad, it would be better to 
make a good job of National Insur- 
ance reform this year and leave 
income tax for next. Unnecessary 
interference is almost always a mis- 
take.

: World Cup in Mexico. All as it happens. 

We can offer customers refreshments, too

With over 1500 shops in the UK and by far 
: biggest share of the market, Ladbroke are more 
in ready for the changes. 

We’ve already invested in the most modem 
mmunicadon and computer technology. 


From our control centre atHarrowwe’velaid 
down a land-line to all our shops. 

Electronic showboards and banks of TV 
monitors are already in place, alongside snack bars 
or vending machines. (In our larger shops you’ll 
also find waitresses.) 

Through our involvement in satellite tele- 
vision we’ll even have the facility to beam in races 
from abroad. (Handy in the kind of bad weather . 
we’ve been having recently.) 

We believe we’re several years ahead of our 
rivals in these developments. 

No-one else has our operating experience

GILT-EDGED 


Take the money and run? 
Blimey O'Reilly, no way Josfi 
is a air translation of the 
traders' more crisply ex- 
pressed vernacular. This mar- 
ket fa going to the moon and 
beyond, they chant in 
Jonathans’; buy until May, 
then go away. 

The traders, of course, are 
fixated purely by price move- 
ments. Such elemental sim- 
plicity stands in refreshing 
contrast to the tortuous and 
protracted nature of last 
week’s .co-ordinated moves 
across the West to cut rates. 

True, Operation Discount 
Rate has succeeded so far, 
wifi one notable exception. 
But it has not been easy. Is 
there scope for a second round 
of cuts? 

The West German experi- 
ence is salutary. In outline, 
cheaper money should have 
appealed both to fie nfling 
Christian Democrat party, af- 
ter its disagreeable experience 

in the Schleswig-Holstein lo- 
cal elections, and to the policy 
makers. Dismal February job- 
less data kept unemployment 
at )0.4 per cent of the 
workforce. On the surface, 
price stability looked assured 
as- February inflation hit an 
18-year low of 0.7 per cent 

But this is only part of the 
story. West Germany was 
already heading for its highest 
real growth before the dis- 
count rate cuts, at about 4 per 
cent in real terms. 

Lower oil prices should put 
the equivalent of some DM10 
billion into the pockets of 
West German consumers, just 


ahead of tax cuts worth rough- 
ly tiie same amount, sched- 
uled for bier this year. 

The quickening pace of 
West German expansion 
shows up in the January 
output numbers — up 2.4 per 
cent — and in the rising trend 
for short-term rates over the 
past fortnight. Wifi the fiscal 
stance easing, any move to cut 
rates as well would automati- 
cally look inflationary to the 
Germans, who cultivate a 
serious approach 

Hardly surprising, then, 
that the West Germans chose 
to cut the discount rate in 
possibly the most ill-tempered 
manner conceivable. The dis- 
count rate itself was trimmed, 
but the Bundesbank also an- 
nounced a contraction in the 
amount of credit available for 
rediscount in May. The Lom- 
bard rate, lynch-pin of the 

whole West German mone- 
tary system, was left un- 
changed, widening the diff- 
erential between discount and 
Lombard rate to its widest 
point for 40 years. And the 
Lombard rate is key. because 
it is market determined. 

After being bullied fry the 
world’s press, the West Ger- 
mans bowed to pressure and 
cut their rates. But privately, 
Bundesbank officials suggest 
that a more neutral approach 
would have been preferable, 
had it not been for exchange 
rate pressure which pushed 
the mark up by some 3 per 
cent in less than a month. 

The American experience is 
slightly similar. After Japan 
and West Germany had cut 


their rates, Mr Paul Volcker, 
chairman of the Federal Re- 
serve, might have been forgiv- 
en for hesitating a fraction 
before following suit, if only to 
gauge the foreign exchange 
reaction. 

. The (foliar weakened mark- 
edly against the mark late on 
Thursday. Essentially, Mr 
Volcker had achieved his 
goals — breathing space for the 
dollar via rate cuts elsewhere. 
These gave him leeway to 
maintain an expansionary 
monetary policy in a bid to 
stoke up a lagging economy. 

But like the rest of the 
players, Mr Volcker ran out of 
scratch and time. The Febru- 
ary jobless figures came out far 
worse than expected, exposing 
the inadequacy of the strategy. 
Within half an hour of their 
publication, Mr Volcker had 
cut the Fed Discount Rate. 

A number of points stand 
out from the world rate- 
cutting exercise so far. Indi- 
vidual country objections to 
specific cuts have been swept 
aside as the joint operation 
has soldiered on. Meanwhile, 
the bonds continue to make 
fie running. 

Mr Volcker might have 
preferred to hold out against 
cuts for longer, but US bond 
yields had already broken 
downwards so sharply at fie 
short end of the market that 
further delay risked invalidat- 
ing the yield curve. Instead of 
fie yield curve flipping up- 
wards at fie long end, the 
policy-makers changed tack at 
fie short end. 

Markets closed for fie 


weekend, scenting a fresh 
round of cuts on fie way. 
Already there is talk of anoth- 
er discount rate cut in Japan, 
and this, if it materialized, 
would set fie ball rolling 
again. But the differing impact 
of rate cuts seems bound to 
stoke up resistance by individ- 
ual countries, in fie absence of 
specific galvanizing factors, 
which would give the entire 
exercise new impetus. 

In particular, fie bonds 
need fresh fuel to keep mov- 
ing. Otherwise, fie provoca- 
tive role they have played in 
goading central banks into 
action could be transformed. 
Heavy selling, inspired by 
bearish comments from, say, 
Henry Kaufman at Salomon 
Brothers, could easily turn 
what has been an agreeable 
party into a wake. 

These factors, in turn, high- 
light the pivotal role played by 
London. In the last month, gilt 
yields have fallen by nearly 
100 basis points, taking fie 
bulk of maturities well into 
single-figure return country. 
Not only has fie old bogey of 
the 10 per cent yield barrier 
been, temporarily at least, 
dispelled; fie gilts play in 
London has been fundamental 
in igniting the world surge in 
fixed-interest stock prices. 

In a perfect world, London 
would now be preparing to 
make substantive rale cuts. 
One or two points looks to be 
well within fie range of possi- 
bility. In January, rates were 
pushed up by 1 point to 12‘A 
per cent as part of fie sterling 
defence programme. Since 


then, a run of good figures on 
inflation, PSBR and money 
supply have created the im- 
pression fiat key components 
in fie Chancellor's strategy 
are performing in line wifi 
expectations. 

This argument is suscepti- 
ble to considerable elabora- 
tion. In contrast to New York, 
where extension premiums 
narrowed in the bonds run, 
London has lived for some 
time under fie cosh of an 
inverted yield curve, legacy of 
fie January 1985 sterling cri- 
sis. The steepness of inversion 
has increased during the Feb- 
ruary rally, so that gilt yields 
of about 9.8 per cent compare 
wifi money rates of about 12 
percenL 

London has played a very 
cautious game so far, and 
refused to cat rates, while gilts 
have rushed ahead. But trad- 
ers are now starting to enthuse 
over the short end of fie gilts 
market where, it is alleged, a 
double play exists. Not only 
will short gilt yields fall, as 
British rates are cut, but fie 
United Kingdom's good 
house-keeping record allows 
scope for fie shape of fie yield 
curve to alter from sharply 
negative to neutral or even 
mildly positive. 

Vogue stocks to buy on this 
argument are the longer dated 
convertibles which could real- 
ly scream ahead, if the argu- 
ment holds. And substantive 
rate cuts would enable Lon- 
don to take fie initiative in 
fie global exercise. 

All these points give fie 
next set of money supply 


figures an added importance. 
Good figures would consoli- 
date Britain’s improved repu- 
tation for capable economic 
management, and pave fie 
way for cuts this week, and 
perhaps also the following 
week, at Budget time. 

Poor figures at this juncture 
would be simply embarrass- 
ing, since they would imply 
that Britain was incapable of 
following the US, fie Japanese 
and fie West Germans in the 
joint projecL The bond play in 
London, which has been high- 
ly exuberant, would also be 
threatened, since doubt yet 
again would be cast on Gov- 
ernment data as a guide to 
policy implementation. Hopes 
of a more normal yield curve 
would be deferred yet again. 

Even more embarrassing 
would be a poor set of money 
supply figures, followed by 
cuts imposed willy-nilly. 

But best estimates must be 
for a rate cut this week, after 
reasonable money numbers, 
and fie hint of further cuts at 
Budget time. Policy makers 
know too that fie Ides of 
March looms. They have no 
plans presumably lo allow 
themselves to be savaged by 
fie bears. 

Horace supplies an appro- 
priate quip, in the Epistles. 
Vade. vale, cave ne t (tubes 
mandataque frangas, he 
writes. Roughly translated, 
this means don't drop the ball 
at 2.30 tomorrow afternoon.

And in the past six years they have

All of which explains why, on average, 
over one million pounds worth of Leyland 
trucks are sold every working day. 


In January and February of 1986 Leyland 
Trucks registered more trucks in Britain than 

any other manufacturer. 

Last year they exported trucks worth £77 
mill ion to Abu Dhabi, Zaire and 49 countries 

in between. 

In 1980 Leyland Trucks invested £62 


million in a brand new production plant and

clauses m a tease. . •• 

In the absence of dear words 
requiring die real review pro- 
vision (as opposed to all pro- 
visions as ■ to rent) to - be 
disregarded, and in the absence 
of special circumstances, it was 
proper to give effect to the 
im/W tymg commercial purpose 
of a rent review danse and to 
■construe the words so as to give 
effect to thatjMitpiMe by requir- 
ing future rent reviews to be 
taken into account in fixing the 
.open market; rental under the 
hypothetical letting. 

Mr John Cofyet, QC and_Mr 
K. Reynolds for the plaintiffi Mr 
Michael Barnes, QC and Mr D. 
Elvin for the de fen d an t. 

THE VlC&CHANCELLpR 
said the case raised the question 
whether a vainer appointed to 
fix a new rent of premises under 
a rent review dause in a lease 
ought to take into account die 
feet that the lease in question 
contained provisions for further 
rent reviews in die future. 

; A common formula in rent 
review provisions was that a 
valuer should assume a hypo* 
theticai letting of the premises 
on the open market containing 
the same, provisions, as the 
actual lease. “other than as to 
rent". 

The question was whether 
such a rent exclusion provision 
meant that the valuer was to 
ignore the fact that the actual 
tease contained provisions for 
future rent review. 

■ ' In the present case the plain- 
tiff had been granted a lease of 
office premises for a term of 35 
years from March -25, 1980, the 
yeady rent being £3,150,000 
or such other rent as might be 
substituted therefor. 

■■ The second schedule pro- 
vided that in the event of a 
landlord’s review, notice, the 
yearly rent payable from the 
review date was to-be the higher 
of (i) the yearly rent payable 
immediately before such review 
date and ui) the rack rental 
value at the relevant review 
date. The review dates were to 
be at five yearly intervals. 

The rack rental value was to 
mean “such rent as may be 

agreed or determined to be 

the best yearly rent at which the 
demised premises could reason- 
ably be expected to let in the 
open market by a willing land- 
lord to a willxng tenanl for a 
term equal to die term hereby 
.granted by means of a lease, 
containing the same provisions 
(other than as to the yearly rent) 
as axe herein con tallied . . 

Ax March 25, 1985, die parties 
having foiled to agree a new 
rent, an independent valuer had 
to be appointed, and the ques- 
tion was whether, in assessing 
the rack rental value, he should 
assume a hypothetical letting on. 
ta r pm which included five- 
yearly rent reviews. • 

Counsel agreed that there 
were three possible construc- 
tions of the rent exclusion 
provision: 

(1) Ignore all provisions refeting 
to rent in a lease. 

(2) . Ignore those provisions 
which related to the quantifica- 
tion' of rent. payable- immedi- 
ately before the relevant review 
date as well as die provisions for 
fixture rent reviews. ... 

(3) Ignore die rent actually 
payable before the review date 


first to try to discover the 
underlying purpose of tbe rent 
review provisions so as to give 
effect to that purpose. 

The general purpose of a 
provision for rent review was to 
enable a landlord to obtain from 
time to time a market rectal 
which the premises would com- 
mand iflet on the same terms on 
the open market at the review 
dates, and in the absenc e of d ear 
words or surrounding circum- 
stances a tease should be con- 
strued so as.io give effect to that 
basic purpose. 

In the present case therefore, 
tbe rack rental value of the 
premises ought to be fixed on 
the basis that the hypothetical 
letting was on tbe terms of tbe 
iratffd tease excluding only the 
rent actually quantified and 
payable before foe review date 
but including foe provisions for 
five-yearly rent review. 

Recent cases had been on 
. construction of the particular 
lease, but they did disclose s 
marked difference. o£ approach 
to foe construction of rent 
review clauses. .. 

In those circumstances, bis 
Lordship felt free to adopt what 
he considered was foe coined 
approach to rent exclusion pro- 
visions: 

(a) No literal effect could be 
given to words requiring all 
provisions as to ; rent to be 
disregarded. 

(b) Other dear words requir- 
ing tbe rent review provisions 
(as opposed to all provisions as . 
to rent) to be disregarded must 
be given, effect to, however 
wayward the result. 

(c) Subject to.(b), in the 
absence of speoal circum- 
stances, it was proper to give 
effect to. tbe underlying com- 
mercial purpose of a rent review 
clause and to construe it so as to 
give effect to that purpose by 
requiring future rent reviews to 
be taken into account in fixing 
foe open market rental under 
foe hypothetical Jetting. 

Such an a p proach might seem 
dose to seeking to lay down 
mechanistic rules . of construc- 
tion as opposed to principles of 
construction. But rhere was an 
urgent need to produce oertainty 
in the field of rent review. 

Landlords, tenants and their 
valuers needed to know what 
was the right bans of valuation 
without recourse to lawyers, let 
alone foe courts- The question 
could not be left to turn on the 
terms of each lease without, tbe 
basic approach being certain. 

. A declaration would be made 
m foe present case to foe effect 
tha t foe r ack rental, value to be 
determined by an independent 
valuer would mean tbe best 
yearly rent at which the 
-premises could reasonably be 
expected to let on the open 
market for a term equal to the 
term granted by means-of a tease 
co nt ai ning foe same pro visions 
as the lease (other than foe 

at iberelevant miwd^'iad 
in particular containing like 
prov isions for. foe-review of. the 
rent as were contained in -foe: 
lease a nd upon the other express 
assumptions set out. -

health 


drive for a fitter future 


The briskest trade at tbe 
USM exhibition last week was 
seen at the Merrydown stall 
where the finance director, Mr 
Mike O'DriscolL was extend- 
ing his famous hospitality to 
alt comers. 

Merrydown, which is based 
in Horsham, West Sussex, 
produces vintage quality ci- 
ders. The company started life 
in the early 1950s, deriving its 
name from tbe chairman's 
house. . 

Heavy duty increases tu foe 
Macmillan era nearly stran- 
gled the fledgling, limiting 
growth for many years. It was 
only in 1976, when foe compa- 
ny reintroduced vintage cider 
equivalent to a table wine 
strength, which placed the 
products at foe top end of the 
vintage cider market, that 
profit growth was resumed. - 

The company was a founder 
member of foe USM, making 
its debut in 1981. Since then it 
has invested heavily in. vin- 
tage cider brewing capacity. 

Profit growth has been dra- 
matic, moving from £200,000 
in 1981 to £1.3 million in tbe 
year to March 1985. Poor 
summer weather will limit 
progress in the current year, 
although the mild autumn was 
beneficial for sales. 

The real interest in the 
company in the next two years 


lies in its plans for diversifica- 
tion. 

Merrydown has for many 
years produced a range of 
vinegars and health foods as a 
byproduct of cider producing, 
which are marketed under the 
Martlet label. 

These make a small contri- 
bution to sales through health 
group outlets but the group is 
launching a major marketing 
campaign to extend sales 
through the supermarket 
chains. If successful, this 
could substantially broaden 
the product base of the com- 
pany and make a significant 
impact on profits. 

Elsewhere the USM exhibi- 
tion was notable .more for the 
sponsors promoting their ser- 
vices, including a posse of 
accountants, stockbrokers and 
.public relations consultants. 

" The exhibition is therefore 
more valuable for a company 
looking to float itself on the 
USM or graduate from the 
OTC than for investors hop- 
ing lo learn of opportunities 
available for placing their 
funds. 

Most sponsors did, howev- 
er, indicate a continuing 
healthy flow of new issues in 
the pipeline despite the much 
quieter start to the new issues 
this year. 

Interim figures are due to- 
morrow from Microfilm Re- 


prographics. This is a 
microfilming bureau provid- 
ing standard microfilm ar- 
chive services and the more 
glamorous computer output 
microfiche recorded directly 
from floppy discs. 

The company was founded 
bv a stockbroker, Mr John 
Redmond, in 1969 on £1,000 
capital and has grown to a 
market capitalization of £35 

million- # . 

Floated on the USM m 

1981, it hit trouble shortly 
afterwards with tbe loss of two 
major contracts but manage- 
ment changes implemented 
after this disaster have left foe 
company stronger than ever 
before. . . 

Microfilm is increasingly 
used as a cheap and efficient 
means of information storage 
and retrieval, while the dra- 
matic growth in foe use of 
computer-stored information, 
especially in foe finan c i al 
services sector, has led to 
explosive demands in foe 
market for microfiche record- 
ing services. 

Substantial investment by 
the company has given it a 
technological iead over many 
of its competitors. 

Further technological devel- 
opments in the pipeline in- 
clude colour microfiche which 
will open up undeveloped 
markets such as newspapers 


and museums. Electronic 
transmission from microfiche 
will also be available shortly. 

The company has undertak- 
en three major aquisitions 
over the last 18 months, two 
in tile highly profitable com- 
puter output division, buying 
out in-house microfilm bu- 
reaux from RHM and a 
former Unilever subsidiary. 

Tbe integration of these two 
companies has yet to be fully 
reflected on the bottom line 
but tomorrow’s figures should 
see the first fruits. 

For the full year to June the 
market is looking for more 
than £U million compared 
with last year's £580,000, 
which on a low tax charge 
would give earnings per share 
of 18p. 

At 420p this leaves the 
shar es on a demanding price 
earnings ratio of 23 but with 
further excellent progress for 
1987 in prospect the shares 
remain a very sound invest- 
ment. 

Investors interested in this 
area should also look at 
IMUcrogen, the other quoted 
microfilming bureau. 

At 330p foe shares are on a 
historic tight earnings ratio of 
20 times but the prospective 
for 1986 fells to 13 times and 
the shares look good value. 

Isabel Unsworth 


A significant change is due- 
to take place later' this year in ." 
the United Kingdom’s Trade 
Marie Law. For the first time 
companies and individuals 
operating in service industries 
will be entitled to the protec- 
tion of a registration at the 
i Trade Marks Registry. 

Until now such protection 
has only been available to 
those in trade or industry. 
This is because the Trade 
Marks Act 1938 followed the 
pattern established by previ- 
ous legislation in stipulating 
that a trade mark could only 
be registered in respect of', 
goods. 

For a valid registration it 
was necessary for the regis- 
tered owner to have at least a 
bona fide intention at the 
outset to apply the proposed 
registration to nominated 
goods for the purpose of 
indicating a connection m the 
course of trade between him- 
self and those goods. 

It was equally important 
that, once registration had 
been achieved, use of tbe mark 
on those goods should contin- 
ue. • 

' The emphasis laid on goods 
in this way meant that aK 
though the company name.- 
logo or trading style of, for 
example, an airline is as 
important to it as those of an 
aircraft manufa cturer, it was 
only the latter who could 
register them as trademarks. 

Tbe same would apply to an 
author, as opposed to a pub- 
lisher and to a golf course 
proprietor as opposed to a golf 
club man ufacturer. 

Contrary to popular belief 
the registration of a company 
name at Companies House (or 
of a business name at the old 
Business Names Registry) did 


set to 


not provide any protscuon m 
this regard at alL . 

If, therefore, a service bust- 
ness found itself threatened by 
a competitor using a .name or 
other trading style similar to 
its own it baa.to resort to the 
common law action of “pass- 
ing off” in order to stop such 
unfair trading- - 

“Passing off" is a avu 
wrong established by case law 
over many years which, put at - 
its simplest provides a ren te-* 
dy for any business or organi- 
zation which can show thai n 

has established a reputation in 

a particular name or trading 
style and that the activities 
complained of are likely to 
cause confusion among poten- 
tial customers. 

A passing off action is 
frequently expensive an d nn- 
certain as to outcome because 
it entails proving to tbe court 
that disinterested outsiders do 
recognize the reputation 
which the complainant claims 
to have developed and are 
likely to be confused by the 
competitor’s activities. 

Manufacturers, retailers 
and others dealing in goads 
could frequently reduce or 
avoid these difficulties by 
relying upon a registered trade 
mark. 

Not only did tins enable 
them to avoid the necessity of 
proving their reputation every 


tiraethey wished to preventa 
competitor taking -W 
advantage, but it also rasMed 
anyone starting a business or 
introducing a new product tt) 
check ; whether a. particular 
trading style -or brand name 
had alraady beea registered by 
soraetme dse: v ' ■ _ 

Businesses in the service 
industries have occasionally 
tried to secure some protec- 
tion by the artificial device of 
registering a ^ trademark : in 
respect ot goods which had 
some connection with foe 
servioebemg offered. - . 

Thus, amines sometimes 
registered a mark to cover 
tickets, luggage tags and flight 
iwgs, and banks might .seek 
registration in respect of paper 
goods such as cheque books. - 

Although such regi strations 
may have acted as a deterrent 
to potential copiers .it -was 
generally thought that they 
were of doubtful validity for 
the simple reason that, to take 
a bank as an example, what it 

sold, and was paid for, was foe 

banking service which it pro- 
vided and not tbe cheque 
books which were issued as 
part of that service. . 

A recent High Court deci- 
sion pennrtting registration of 
the name and colour scheme 
of the Visa bank card has only 
slightly modified the position. 

For some years now it has 


been -dear dat the -United 
Kingdom has becn.fefltng out. ■ 
ofstep with the large number 
of industrial countries which 
accept applications for marks 
in respect of semccsnsweU as 

^T^is bas earned particular 
concern in tbe . context of a 
proposed .Emohu-- nde 
Jnark and the Unfed King- 
dom candidacy for selection 
as the location '-of *;pp°Posed 
European Trade Mark Regis- 

^Afirst attempt torefonntte 

law by means of a private Bui 

introduced in foe House of 
Lords foiled when Parfiaipent 
was dissolved in 1 983-, ; « 
That Bill bad o n&inatty 
been opposed by the Govern- 
ment largely on the grounds 
that foe Trade Mark Registry 
/Turk! nor cope with the extra 
work -Toad which would be 
iuvotved if service marks were 

introduced. : • . . ‘ - 

By the time a new Bin was 
introduced in the House of 
Commons latex in .1983, that 
opposition had evaporated. 
However, when it subsequent- 
ly passed into law as tbe Trade 
Marks (Amendment) Act 
1984, it was announced that 
the Trade Mark Registry 
would not be ready to accept 
applications unt31987. . 

The starting date has now 
been brought forward to Octo- . 
berl. this year. 

The professions are equally 
interested and ibe relaxation 
of the control of advertising m 

many of them w© have made 

them more aware, tif this 
.change in the law. ■.

Cup holders take bumpy road 


By David Hands,

London Welsh 10 

Bath IS 


Like two limousines taken out 
of the garage after a damp 
winter, last year's finalists 
motored through Saturday's 
quarter-final of the John Play- 
er Special Cup at Old Deer 
Park, spluttering as they 
searched for that elusive quali- 
ty, form. It was frustrating for 
the players and for some 4,000 
spectators because conditions 
were ideal for a running game 
but it was entirely understand- 
able in the difficult circum- 
stances clubs have endured of 
late. 

The cup holders won de- 
servedly by three tries and two 
penalty goals to a try and two 
penalties but they made life 
difficult for themselves by 
missing seven assorted kicks 
at goal and if one of their tries 
had been disallowed — which, 
drawing a parallel with Clive 
Noriing's decision in the 
Twickenham international the 
week before, it might have 
been — the difference would 
have been barely discernible. 

There were times when the 
quality of Bath's forwards 
gave every indication that 
they would take command. In 
the absence of Collins and 
Watkins, the injured Welsh 
lineout men, they dominated 
that phase of the game and 
every so often they pm togeth- 
er some delightful forward 
drives, with Simspon and 
Redman inevitably in the van. 

But the Welsh tackling nev- 
er deserted them and. impor- 
tantly this season, their set 
scrum held despite the ab- 
sence of Bradley with a calf 
injury. They even managed to 
steal a heel against the head, 
after having once been pushed 
off their own ball, and the 
scrum provided a focal point 
for the Exiles' efforts. 

Inevitably though Bath 
were going forward so they 
had the majority of the scrum 
feeds and when the Welsh 
half-backs relieved pressure 
they only returned the ball to 
touch, a point of Bath's 
strength. And. whatever the 
fallibility of Bath's beck play

Forward held back: Egertoo, of Bath, battles to break free (PhotographOan Stewart) 


these days, there is no doubt- 
ing the quality of their tight 
forwards at the set pieces and 
in the loose which ensured 
their place in today's semi- 
final draw. 

London Welsh had first use 
of the wind and the sun and 
were level at 10-10 by half 
time. They stole the lead with 
an excellent try in which Leleu 
checked the Bath backs, 
Fouhy looped round and Ev- 
ans, in support of Yeandle, 
scored. 

It was Evans who was 
involved in the episode just 
before the interval which gave 
Bath back the advantage. He 
came leaping over a ruck at 
Hill in a manner which sug- 
gested that the Bath scrum 
half had committed some 
felony and was promptly 
penalised. From the tapped 
penalty, which was taken 
twice because the Welsh failed 


to retreat sufficiently far, 
Simpson scored. 

Hill was involved, too, in an 
incident immediately preced- 
ing Bath's second uy. London 
Welsh held Bath's secondary 
shove at a five-metre scrum 
but were forced to wheel; Price 
came charging in to hack at 
the ball which was in Bath's 
back row and was promptly 
sent reeling backwards by Hill. 

Evidently Selwyn 
Trevithick, the referee, shared 
Hill's view that Price had no 
business to be there but it is 
not for the scrum half to take 
the law into his own hands. As 
it was Egerton scored at that 
scnim; had Price intervened 
successfully I imagine Bath 
would have received a penalty 
try which, even on an off day, 
Barnes would have converted. 
Had Mr Trevithick felt so 
inclined he might have 
penalised Hill for punching 


and disallowed the try. 

Hill is much too good and 
intelligent a player to get 
involved in this kind of way 
and. equally to the point, one 
day be may come up against a ' 
side capable of exacting a 
fearful retribution. As it was 
he made the game safe when a 
long pass from a scrum gave 
Martin the chance to send •• 
Swift over.

CONTRIBUTES EFFECTIVELY TO CORPORATE PERFORMANCE 


There were signs on Saturday 
that winter was maintaining its 
icy grip on both teams, although 
this fonrth round John Player 
Special Cup tie was played in 
relatively warm sunshine. Lon* 
don Scottish deserved their 
place in the quarter-final against 
Gloucester because in the clatter 
of confusion and missed 
chances they were marginally 
more organized. 

Northampton must regret 
that Johnson, their lacker, went 
down with influenza. Woodrow, 
the captain, and Larkin missed 
two penalties apiece and Sharpe 
was understandably unsure as 
Johnson's replacement 

However, the sterility of 
Northampton's tactics was most 
dearly shown at a scries of three 
tap penalties in the first half. 
They tried unsuccessfully to 
bulldoze over the Scottish tine 
from short range without once 
spreading the play.The players 
were frustrated by their mis- 
takes and by the futile tackle law 
which leads to so many stop-

StewartV-MelviDe continued 
to set the pace in the first 
division of the national league 
as they trounced the reiegaii on- 
threatened Kilmar nock by 34- 
14. The home side charged to an 
early 18-point lead with tries by 
Ferguson, John and Finlay CaL 
derand Goudie. Ferguson man- 
aged only one conversion. 
Kilmarnock, whose big for- 
wards were winning much pos- 
session, continued to fight hard 
and tries by Lawson and Yates 
brought the score to 18-10 
before Stewart’s- Melville again 
raced away with tries by Wyllie, 
Blackwood and Jim Calder. 
Ferguson converted two. For 
Kilmarnock Martin had a fur- 
ther try which was converted by 
Glenn. 

Hawick beat Jed-Forest by 
15-7 in a dour struggle at 
Riverside Park. Early pressure 
from the visitors came to noth- 
ing and Jed took the lead with a 
penalty by Jackson and an 

opportunist try by the inter- 
national scrum halt Roy 
Laidlaw.as he intercepted a pass 
and ran half the length of the 
pitch to score. Gass brought 
Hawick back with a penalty and 
in the second half a try by 
Stanger was converted by Gass, 
who also kicked a penalty to 
take the champions home safely. 

Kelso cruised to a 25-7 home 
win over Selkirk. Ker opened 
the Kelso account with a 
dropped goaL The same player 
scored two tries. Tail added 
another and Browne had two 
penalties and two conversions. 

At the other end of the table 
Edinburgh Academicals cased 
their relegation worries with a 
20-9 win over Preston Lodge: 
Playing with a strong wind in 
their backs. Academicals built 
up a 1 6-point lead by half-time 
with two tries from McKie and

ingly difficult for themselves. 
Their scrummage kepi North- 
ampton under constant pres-

England prop, helped his booker 
to one heel against the head. 

After a disjointed first half 
the visitors were 4-3 up at the 
interval with a uy by Walt, after 
Hastings had made the overlap, 
to a penalty by Larkin. In the 
second half Irvine kicked a 
penalty for the Scots: then 
Woodrow hit a post and Larkin 
narrowed the gap with a penally. 

The match-winning try in the 
35th minute raised a few queries 
but Batten appeared to ground 
the ball before he was bundled 
into touch by Larkin. Once 
again. Hastings had timed his 
run perfectly to make the extra 
man.

The Gloucester supporters did 
not feel it safe to start chanting 
until the Iasi minute of injury 
time at Southgate on Saturday. 
Thai was when Hannaford 
scored a try from a typical little 
break by Teague and Gloucester 
moved into the quarter-final 
round of the John Player Special 
Cup with a win over Saracens by 
a try and three penally goals to 
two penalties. 

There was not much for 
anybody to chant about at any 
time. The pitch was more brown 
than green, with straw still in 
evidence, and the rugby too was 
dun coloured. You could almost 
see the players learning the 
fundamentals all over again 
after their recent inaction. The 
pace was rather deliberate, the 
execution laboured. 

Gloucester won the forward 
battle by as narrow a margin as 
they won the match. They owed 
a lot to Orwin in the lineouts 
and they looked stronger in the 
mauls, sometimes turning Sara- 
cens and wresting the hall from 
them. This meant that Hanna- 
ford and Hamlin had an easier 


Final omens augur 
well for Kent 


By Bryan Stiles 


Kent 16 

Gloucestershire 3 

The rustic of spring in what is 
euphemistically called the gar- 
den of England has prompted a 
quickening in the pulse of young 
Kent rugby bucks. On Saturday 
it also brought a blossoming of 
talent that carried them into the 
county championship final for 
the first time iu 59 years. 

Victory at Blackheath over an 
unfamiliar Gloucestershire 
team by a try, a dropped goal 
and two penalty goalsto a pen- 
alty goal qualified them for a 
place in the final against 
Warwickshire at Twickenham 
on April 12. 

In the other semi-final the 
Midlanders beat Lancashire by 
two goals, a try and a penally 
goal to two goals and a penalty 
goaL at Nuneaton. Lancashire 
had seemed nicely positioned 
for victory with an I i-point 
advantage, but they -could not 
repulse Warwickshire's rousing 
riposte, with Thomas collecting 
the winning try. 

Gloucestershire looked for the 
most part like a pretty ragged 
collection, who were not helped 
by the competition role that 
counties can have only one get- 


together before a game. With 
more than half their players 
being drawn from junior clubs it 
was little wonder Gloucester- 
shire were unable to blend 
They fell behind to a neatly 
taken dropped goal by Colyer in 
tbc seventh minutes and were 
never in the hunL Their Towards 
could not match the pace and 
imagination of their opponents 
The accurate Field registered 
three penalty goals and Cokell 
scored a determined try to put 
their captain. Bodenham in 
ebullient mood for the final. As 
his dub, Blackheath. beat Cov- 
entry earlier in the season, and 

as Coventry form the basis of 
the Warwickshire team, he is 
optimistic that he can end his 
rugby career on a winning note

CRICKET: PITCH CONTAINS SOME HOPE FOR BATSMEN 


Early run-out of Slack 
offsets good work 


by England’s spinners 


From John Woodcock, Oickef Correspondent, Fort of Spain, Trinidad 
After gaining a first innings Against Thomas, Richard- them to Marshall who Played 

son went from 84 to 98 in 


lead of 223 in the second Test 
match here yesterday, the 
West Indies tan out Slack 
before be had scored when 
England batted again. This 
merely increased the size of 
England’s task if they were co 
escape with a draw, though 
Gooch and Gower had the 50 
up in the fifteenth over with- 
out further loss. 

The pitch was as good as it 
will ever be: there was some 
turn there, but the West Indies 
had no spinner. For their four 
fast bowlers there was little 
pace: in theory, the conditions 
gave England's batsmen the 
chance to regain lost confi- 
dence. 

Soon after lunch on Satur- 
day the West Indies had 
looked to be beading for a 
total of 500. or more if they 
bad wanted. They had been 
given a flying start to their 
innings by some wild bowling 
from Botham, whose first five 
overs cost 39 runs and were 
enough to make the rest of the 
side feel like giving up the 
ghost It was bad enough being 
bowled out on the first day for 
176 without following up by 
throwing runs at the West 
Indian openers. 

Although Ellison then 
bowled his heart out on 
Saturday morning, it was not 
until Edmonds and Emburey 
joined forces on Saturday 
afternoon that the batsmen 
were kept at anything like full 
stretch, and by then Richard- 
son was 99 and the West 
Indies were 200 for one. 
Because the West Indian fast 
bowlers could make some- 
thing of the pitch, Gower 
seemed to think that 
England's must, though what 
the situation needed was tight 
control 


three balls, with two magnifi- 
cent hooks and an on-drive. 
As soon as Emburey bowled at 
the other end to Edmonds it 
was a different story. In the 
next three hours, seven wick- 
ets fell for 142 runs, the 
batsmen failing to find any 
sort of a mean between wild 
attack and dour defence. Best, 
for example, spent 23 overs 
making 22 runs, while Rich- 
ards came in and batted as 
though he hada train to ca tch , 
hitting two sixes and four 
fours in 20 balls before getting 
himself out 

I am not sure why Richards 
has taken to batting at number 
six. unless it is because Sobers 
and Lloyd, the West Indies' 
last two captains, did so when 
they were his age, but it 
certainly suited England now. 

So by Saturday night the 
West Indies had reached 347 
for eight Yesterday morning 
their last two wickets added 
another 52 in 1 3.4 overs. 40 of 


like a good No 5. From the 
moment Gower took the hew 
ball on Saturday, with a 
quarter of an hour left, things 
seemed to be left more to 
chance again. I am not quite 
sure why Gower claimed it 
when he did. unless it was in 
the hope that Thomas might 
put one of the West Indian fast 
bowlers out of action with a 
bouncer. 

He tried hard enough, but 
Marshall was unmoved and 
Walsh and Patterson stayed in 
one piece, though it was in 
fending off a short ball that 
Walsh was caught at short leg. 
By the time Botham came on 
and had Patterson caught at 
second slip, also off a short 
ball Emburey had been hit for 
16 in two overs. However, he 


finished with five for 78 to go

with his five for 124 in 
Trinidad Test on the last tour, 
and but for him and Edmonds 
England could still be in the 
field. 

Left with three quarter of an 
hour’s batting before lunch 
yesterday England lost Slade 
in their third over. He pushed 
Gamer forward of the wicket 
on the offside and set out on 
what for a pair with a close 
understanding of each other’s 
intentions would have been a 
comfortable single. 

But Gooch is a slow coach 
and seeing Gamer out of the 
comer of his eye and knowing 
that he can cover the pitch in 
half a dozen strides, he sent 
Slack back. Gamer, quick to 
see the crisis, pounced. Al- 
though somewhere near half- 
way, Slack looked to me to 
make his ground. Umpire 
Cumberbatch, better placed to 
see. thought otherwise, and 
England were two for one, the 
first wicket thrown away. 


No armour avails against spin 


What can be done to remove 
tills corse from a once beautiful 
game? For surely Saturday 
showed ns the unacceptable face 
of cricket. After the wonders of 
Sabina POrfc, Jamaica, where we 
had three days of good, dean, 
vicious fim at the Queen's Park 
Oval in Trinidad, we were forced 
to watch the ugly side of cricket 
— a fell day of spin. 

Let os not mince words. The 
batsmen were being deliberately 
tormented. Edmonds and 
Emburey were unscrupulously 
using every vicious device in 
their devious repertoires to 
make the ball buzz and fizz and 
they made life impossible for the 
best batsmen in the world. They 
did so coldly and cynically; their 
cruel aim was to cause mental 
torture in the batsmen. And they 
succeeded. 

AU the helmets and armour in 
the world were no protection 
against the evil-minded policies 
of England's shameful pair. Not 
even Richards was aUe utterly 
to defy tins scourge of the 
modem game; be was reduced to 
cutting the ball off his stnmp, 
and thus he fefl. 

Edmonds bowled longer and 


with less lock; Emburey had the 
lock instead, which was not fair 
because it was Edmonds's birth- 
day. But the feet was that tire

runs away with old-fashioned 
bouncers; but they resorted to 
the calculated torment of spin 
and briefly took control of tire 
game. Had the English batsmen 
given them some nms to bow] at, 
tire spin might have worked the 
miracle England sought. 


heavy 


Colombo (Agencies) — Heavy 
rain caused the third one-day 
international between Pakistan 
and Sri Lanka to be abandoned 
without a ball being bowled. The 
the second one-day game on 
Saturday was also abandoned 
after rain prevented Sri Lanka 
from replying to the Pakistan 
score of 125 for eight in 38 
overs. Pakistan lead 1-0 in the 
four-match series. The final 
game starts tomorrow.

pincer movement between the, 
bowlers* two differing forms of 
unacceptable excellence 
England played ft sportingly 
for a while, cheerfully throwing 


But the question re ma ins and 
cannot be docked: what can be 
done to remove the curse of spin 
from the game? A white line 
threeq carters of the way np tire 
pitch, beyond which tire ball 
most not bounce? A bar sus- 
pended at half-way, under which 
the ball must pass, to eliminate 
the unfair flighted ball? Perhaps 
the bowler she old be limited to 
one ball that turns per over. 

Surely no spin should be 
bowled to taB-enders. The um- 
pire must step in. When a bowler 
turns the ball sideways and 
refuses to aim at the batsman 
surely the umpire must tell him 
to return at once to normal 
cricket and to try to knock tire 
batsman's head off. What is 
cricket supposed to be about, 
after all?

CYCLING: THE HUNGER OF AN IRISHMAN 



The man who finished as he started: the victorious Kelly 


Fortune smiles on Kelly 


By John WDcockson 


Not since the early 1970s 
when Eddy Merckx was 
dominating the sport has one 
man shown as much hunger for 


victory as Sean Kelly. Yesterday 
29-} 


the 29-year-old Irishman fin- 
ished the 750-mile Paris lo Nice 
race the same way as be had 
started a week ago. with a time 
trial victory. 

By winning the prologue last 
week in freezing weather at 
Vincennes Kelly established an 
adequate lead over his immedi- 


ate rivals, led by Greg LeMond, 


of United States. All Iasi week 
Kelly and his multi-national 
Kas’team controlled the siiua- 


terday when, in perfect con- 
ditions, warm with little wind, 
Kelly smashed the course record 
for the time trial from Nice to 
the top of ibe Haute Comiche. 
He covered the 6.7 miles in 19 
minutes 45 seconds. 

LeMond was almost a minute 
slower while Zimmerman con- 
ceded only 27 seconds to main? 
tain his overall second place. 
The talented Frenchman, Jean- 
Francois Bernard, took the de- 
served second place in the time 
trial but this was only good 
enough to lift him from ninth to 
seventh place in the final stand- 


lion so well that he was able to 
id take 


win one more stage ant 
four second places. 

On the decisive stage up Mont 
Ventoux on Thursday LeMond 
cracked and Urs Zimmerman, 
of Switzerland, emerged as 
Kelly's main challenger. These 
positions were confirmed yes- 


Earlier in the day Kelly was 
surprisingly beaten in a mass- 
sprint finish that ended the 63- 
mile stage from Mandelieu. He 
was overtaken in the final yard 
by the rapid Spaniard, Alfonso 
Guttierez, who scored a similar 
success over Kelly three weeks 
ago at Albacete in Spain. 


Kelly's next big assignment is 
the Milan to San Remo race in 
Ttafy next Saturday. He will 
remain ai Nice and prepare for 
this 180-mile one-day classic 
that he has yet to -win, unlike 
Merckx, who scored a record 
seven victories in the event But 
after winning Paris to Nice for 
the fifth successive year Kelly 
may at last find the good fortune 
to go with his super fitness.

Brown’s 



From John BaDMlw» Miami 


Ken Brown's third round of 
73. following bis opening 68s, 
dropped him from joint second 
place to share sixth position in 
the Dora! Eastern Open. The 
strong wind made the difficult 
“Blue Monster" course two 
strokes harder; witness the need 
for three irons instead of pitch- 


ing wedges to the last green. 
The third 


round opened 

rather like Hamlet with a thun- 
derous blare of trumpets and the 
dramatic appearance of the 
ghost in this context, a string of 
seven birdies and the re-emer- 
gence of the 39-year-old Hubert 
Green. 

The man from Alabama who 
won the 1977 US Open makes a 
habit of popping up unexpect- 
edly from lime to time as he did 
to win the PGA title last year. 


two strokes. Another went at the 
next where he drove into sand 
but be got down a 10 footer for a 
birdie two at the short ninth to 
turn in 37. 

He dropped a further stroke ax 
the Uth and missed a birdie 
chance from 12 feet at the 14th. 
But two quick bodies restored 
his fortunes and his faith in his 
old hickory putter and won him 
many friends in the crowd and 
on nationwide television. He 


holed from 20ft at the short 15th 
and played a wonderfully judged 
60 yard banker shot lo within 
four feet at the 16th. His Ryder 
Cup team mates, Bernhard 
Langer and Sandy Lyle, had 
failed to qualify with 76 and 73 
respectively.

McEvoy takes trophy 

• By Mitchell Platts 


His startling fins nine 29 and 
equent 64 


subsequent 64 made it a case of 
“Who's going to be second?" 
Tom Kite struggled to keep him 
.in his sights but finished two 
'behind. 

Brown certainly did not col- 
lapse; it was rather a question of 
his being trampled on in the 
rush. He went out in the last 
group with Kite and Ed Fiori 
and began with a birdie, piteb- 


in^to 10 feel and holing out. 


.-our pars followed, including 
a good “save" from a bunker 
with a 12 footer, before the luck 


tie bad said the previous night 

... — .j y 


would be necessary totally de- 
serted him. He misjudged his 
approach to the 427 yard sixth 
and found his baD 30 yards over 
the green and in a thick patch of 
Bermuda grass. He hit under it 
and plopped it into a bunker 
from where he took a six to drop 


Peter McEvoy won the 
Berkhamsted Trophy, one of the 
few amateur prizes to have 
previously escaped his grasp, 
when he overcame Roger Roper 
at the second extra hole at 
Berkhamsted on Saturday. 

McEvoy came dose to miss- 
ing out again, as he trad done in 
1978 when beaten in a play-off 
by John Davies. 

An 80ft pun at the sixth bole 
in the second round trans- 
formed McEvoy's challenge- He 
went mi to hole two other good 
putts of around 20ft in a run of 
four birdies in nine holes. 

Roper, of Catterick Garrison, 
the joint holder of the Brabazon 
Trophy, played excellently from 
tee to green. He scored -73 and 
71, a marvellous effort on bis 
first visit to Berkhamsted, to 
equal McEvoy's 36-hole, two- 
over-par aggregate of 144. Roper 
missed his opportunity of win- 
ning by taking 36 puns in each 
of his two rounds. 

McEvoy should have won at 
the first extra bole. Roper 


comprehensively missed the 
green with his second shot Then 
McEvoy, from 80 yards out, 
gave his pitching wedge ap- 
proach too much air — slightly 
ironic since Fred Titmus, the 
former England and Middlesex 
crickedter, was caddying for him 
— and the ball sailed over the 
green. Both players finished 
wife sixes. 


Roper took three putts at the 
next hole — striking a four- 
footer firmly enough torthie ball 
to horse-shoe out — and so he 
lost the sudden death pfay-ofL

RUGBY UNION: CARDIFF WILL PLAY BRIDGEND AND NEWPORT FACE ABERAVON 


Leicester end 
Broughton 
Park cup run 

By Michael Stevenson 


Cardiff reach semi-finals 
despite lack of flair 


There were no surprises ax 
Chelsfidd Grove yesterday, 
where Leicester's greater speed, 
physical presence and 
organisation resulted in the end 
of Brooghton Park's Cup run. 
Leicester scored seven goals and 
a try to two penalties. 

Leicester's first points came 
from a pushover try. touched 
down by Richards. A penalty fry 
O'Brien halved Leicester's lead 
but Evans, cutting in field from 
fee right wing, showed the cover 
in a clean pair of beds for a 
magnificent try. 

Young and Wdh added tries 
and Hare cm verted all four first 
half tries toearn Leicester a 24-3 
interval lead. After O'Brien's 
second penalty Foulkes-ArfokL- 
Richards (21 and Tress ler scored 
tries with Hare kicking three 
more conversions. 

Careful preparation served 
Nottingham well jfrhen beating 
Wakefield 26-7 at College 
Grove. All six tries were wdl 
planned. 


Those who saw this quarter- 
final match between Cardiff and 
their neighbours from down tire 
road, Glamorgan Wanderers, 
will wife that the quality of fee 
play in fee semi-finals and final 
will superior to what they saw al 
the Arms Park on Saturday 
(Gerald Davies writes). 

Aberavon, in beating Llanelli, 
had already gov their ticket to 
the semi-finals. On Saturday 
Bridgend drew with Maesteg but 
went through because they 
scored the only try. There was a 
try apiece in Newport's match 
with Swansea, but Turner se- 
cured victory for the home team 
wife two fate penalties. Cardiff 
will play Bridgend and Newport 
face Aberavon in fee semi-finals 
to be played on March 22. '

FOOTBALL-- FA CUP HOLDERS GO OUT 



.By Stuart Jones 
Football Correspondent 


Manchester United. 
West Ham United 


The &H.' wrath of Old 
Trafford was unleashed yes- 
terday afternoon on Brian 
Stevens. The referee, who 
preferred to take little decisive 

action durim'Aejempesnioas 
FA Cup fitth -round tie at 
Upton Park ’last Wednesday, 
understandably infuriated a 
crowd of over 30,000 -with two 
decisions that were to have a 
significant effect onibe out- 
come of the . replay covered 
live on television. 

In harshly awarding a penal- 
ty, converted by .Stewart, in 
the S4ih minute fora nudge by 
Stapleton on Martin that was 
scarcely noticeable, he ush- 
ered West Ham United to- 
wards a place in the sixth 
round. In denying Manchester 
United a penalty in the follow- 
ing minute for a blatant push 
by Stewart on the luckless 
Stapleton,' he effectively 
closed the door on the Cup 
holders. West -Ham’s victory 
was deserved but nevertheless 
unsatisfactory. 

With Robson and Moran 
missing through injury. 
United’s new defensive for- 
mation had included for a 
second cup-tie Higgins, whose 
career was thought to be over 
two. years ago at Everton. 

With Ron Atkinson faxed 
as ever to reshuffle his pack. 
United relied once more on 
spontaneous inspiration, re- 
maining charmingly, if. some- 
times frustratingly 

unpredictable. 

West Ham, with the benefit 
of an unchanged team sheet, 
were better organized. They 
defended in numbers, were 
prepared to concede posses- 
sion in midfield and. broke 
with notable speed through 
their largely lonely but danger- 
ous from runners, Cotiee and 


McAvennie- Their strategy 
was as uncomplicated as h was 
effective. 

United’s individual .bril- 
liance gave early and glorious 
promise. The incisive deep 
\ rims of Gibson and the prob- 
ing passes of Strachan were 
mainly responsible for that 
and Hughes, lying almost on 
the goalline, should, have giv- 
en them some tangible reward 
from McGrath's : low cross. 
Instead, his two - stabbed at- 
tempts lacked the necessary 
PWCT. 

"As United's opening fires 
turned to embers, .-West Ham 
emerged from their cool com- 
posure to take the lead in the 
18th minute. . McGrath, in 
chasing McAvennie, unneces- 
sarily yielded a comer. . Ward 
took it and, ignoring the taller 
figures in the middle, picked 
out Pike some 15 yards oul 
His dean and accurate header 
soared over Albiston and un- 
der the bar. West Ham pro- 
tected themselves at times 
uncomfortably and never 
more so in the first half than 
when Parris tripped Strachan, 
who had been released by 
Whiteside’s delightful through 
ball and was closing in on the 
edge of the area. For that ugly 
offence. Parris was cautioned 
as were Ward, Stewart and 
Whiteside for similarly illegit- 
imate assaults. 

After the interval Parfces 
covered the holes that ^>- 
peared in West Ham’s other- 
wise soKd shield. He twice 
denied Hughes, once remark- 
ably from dose range and was 
later fortunate to see Parris, 
with a faint touch, disturb 
Stapleton's aim as he came in 
to meet an Olsen cross that 
had left the goalkeeper trans- 
fixed on his line.

Managers in a telling mood

Referee: T B Stevens (Stotwhouse). 


Two managers with much in 
common could not have pre- 
sented more contrasting acts in 
Saturday’s FA Cup quarter-final 
at the Goldstone Ground. On 
the one hand was 
Southampton’s Chris Ntcholl, 
keeping a tight rein on his 
emotions and hardly daring to 
think he could- win the Cup in 
his first season as a manager. On 
the other was Chris Catilin of 
Brighton, spiffing out h is dis- 
appointment before any re- 
porter had the chance to ask him 
a question. 

'Nicholl and Cattiin were 17- 
year-olds : together at Burnley, 
were not kept on, but ultimately 
did establish themselves as play- 
ers. Catilin, like Nicholl, is in his 


first managerial job and is 
making a good go of it. 

But their different after-match 
moods were in keeping with 
each team's performance, Brigh- 
ton (and Cattiin) offering greater 
freedom of expression, 
Southampton (and Nicholl) un- 
pretentious but efficient. 

“A tribute to teamwork," 
Nicholl asserted. "Excellent 
goals. We worked hard and we 
fought hard." And Catilin ad- 
mired them for it. "Southamp- 
ton deserved to win." be 
conceded. "We never did our- 
selves justice and didn't play. 
We got done by two sucker 
punches. It's no good sweeping 
it under the carpet — we made 
mistakes." 

The irony of Southampton's 
first goal, after 13 minutes, was 
that it was the product of an 
error and a smart piece of 
thinking . by two men who 
appeared together in Brighton’s 
Cup final team of three seasons 


ago. Pearce, the only member of 
that Brighton side to tine up on 
Saturday, carelessly played a 
pass to Case. Lawrence was then 
released down the right by 
Wallace and Moran splendidly 
headed his first goal of the year. 

Seven minutes before half- 
time Brighton's defence again 
failed to offer a challenge as 
Southampton swept forward. 
Townsend made a surging run 
down centre field and, though 
any one of three Brighton 


players might have attempted a 
tackle, COckei 


:erill was given a free 
run into the area to beat 
Digweed. 

For all their neat manoeuvres 
in midfield, particularly in the 
last half hour, Brighton threat- 
ened Stilton only when Connor 
was in possession. Cattiin's 
gamble in giving Ferguson a rare 
opportunity, at the expense of 
Biiey, was a failure, highlighted 
by Ferguson’s wasting the sec- 


ond division club's best chance 
when he dithered on the ball 
with only Shilton to beat 

With Cockerill beavering 
away and Townsend influential 
after replacing the injured Wal- 
lace. Southampton were 
comfortable winners, reaching 
the semi-finals for the second 
time in three years. 

For two men in particular the 
call of Wembley is loud: Holmes 
is a survivor from 
Southampton's one and only 
Cup-winning team of a decade 
ago and Case will be a rare case 
indeed if he goes there with yet 
another club, having already 
appeared in Cup finals for 
Liverpool and Brighton.

Wigan’s Springfield Paric is

miles will represent the dif- 
ference between reality and 
fantasy. 

Instead of taking the field at 
Liverpool for an FA Cup quar-

Wigan's ground for a ■ third 
division match, knowing that 
Saturday’s television gantry wiB 
have been dismantled at their 
own Gigg Lane home, where the 
touts wul not be back for a 
while. : - 

The dream must have been 
fun white U lasted, which was.fbr 
50 minutes of this fifth round 
replay. It was then that Watford 
started to show something for 
their superior command and 
Barnes, in particular, for his 
exuberant talent. 

Revealing that he is as capable 
of turning it on in the modest 
surroundings of a tree-hoed 
ground, backing on to a grave- 


yard on the fringe of the 
Lancashire moos, as heis in the 
spacious concrete bowl of the 
•M&racana. Baines displayed the 
kind of for m tbac .would make 
. him. an England regular if only 
Kbe was more consistent: 

‘.Thar he. did not score hardly 
mattered. He might have done 
had Graham Taylor, Watford’s 
manager, spared Bury further 
stress try removing the winger 
with 10 minutes left “to get my 
own back because he had been 
taking the mickey about the way 
the West Indies were thrashing 
England at cricket.” 

Players have been substituted 
for rather more serious crimes, 
so it was with ajamity gait that 
Barnes went off, his job done, 
much to the relief of valentine, 
among, others. The centre half 
had bwn beaten for pace, hot for 
the fins time, when Barnes 
supplied the crass for Sterling to 
bead Watford’s third goal five 
minutes earlier. - 

The second goal had come 
when Barnes bad flicked on 
C a ll aghan ’s corner for West to 
nod in. Surprisingly, the first 
h ad nothing to do. with Barnes, 
Callaghan capitalizing on the 


only lapse of Hughes in goal to 
head in Sterling's fiftieth- 
minute cross. Earlier still, 
Barnes had left the bar quivering 
with a shew and provided .West 
with a chance that would have" 
given Watford an interval lead 
had not Hughes bettered his 
previous save from Terry. AD of 
whiclr must make ft . sound 
nonsensical that- Watford did 
not wrap the tie up in last 
Wednesday's first instalment 
Surprised, then, by 
BramhalTs late equalizer, Wat- 
ford were shaken early in the 
replay as the Shakers, gal- 
vanized by Cross and Ross, who 
have known a cup tie or two, 
pushed ever forward. Coton

and watched others by Madden

Aston Villa will fed like men 
tryingio salvage gold from their 
own shipwreck when- they visit 
Oxford United in the second leg 
of their Milk Cup semi-final on 
Wednesday, for it re p re sents 
alast chance to alleviate the 
misery of a league season which 
took an almost catastrophic turn 
for the worse on Saturday when 
they lost 4-1 athometo ArsenaL 

Graham Turner, the Villa 
manager, has grown accustomed 
to playing down the succession 
of bad results which have been 
afflicting his side in the league. 
But Saturday's match, in which 
Villa conceded all four goals in 
the last 32 minutes, took some 
explaining, and Turner’s po- 
sition ' was made no more 
comfortable by the noisy 
demonstration which took place 
afterwards outside the ground. 

"No manager enjoys this sort 
of treatment and no man»g w 
could enjoy the last half hour of 
that game today," Turner said. 
"We just needed to win, how- 
ever we did h. Once we had gone 
ahead we should not have lost 


We have enough experience and 
ability not to be in this 
position.” .Arsenal, hardly a 
potent force in attack, won 
through an own goal by Elliott 
and one each from Nicholas, 
Rocastie and Hayes. 

With Villa lying third from 
bottom of the table, four points 
from safety, the possibility of 
Birmingham losing all three of 
its first division dubs at the end 
of the season looms ever larger. 
It wiD have been small comfort 
to Villa that Birmingham City 
and West Bromwich Albion, 
second to bottom and bottom 
respectively, each managed to 
let in five on Saturday. ^ 

Albion’s defeat vras Totten- 
ham Hotspur’s gauiT though 
such has beerT Spurs’ own 
declining form that a mere 
10,841 people, were at White 
Hart Lane to see Mabbutt, Falco 
(2), Galvin and Waddle score 
the goals which make life a bit 
easier for the manager, Peter 
Shreeve. Birmingham, mean- 
while. were suffering at Shef- 
field Wednesday, for whom 


Shun scored three, making five 
in two games. 

At the top of the first division, 
Liverpool were less generous to 
Queen’s Park Rangers than they 
had been in the Milk Cup last 
week, winning 4-1. McMahon 
(2), Rush and Wark were the 
men who found the right net this 
time. Chelsea played beach 
football with Manchester City 
and kept in touch with the 
leaders when Reid put through 
his own goal with five minutes 
left. But it was a dreadful match 
and the mud and sand which 
passes for the Stamford Bridge 
pitch hardly bodes well for 
Chelsea's championship chal- 
lenge.

Counter-punches 
expose Luton’s 
lack of resources 


By Clive White 


Luton Town ... 2 

Everton 2 


No ope could begrudge parti- 
san Luton supporters their 
protestations of more misfortune 
after their heart-breaking FA 
Cup semi-final defeat to Everton 
last season- But the troth is that 
Luton were not unlucky on 
Saturday nor did they fritter 
away their two-goal lead. 

They simply lost it to a 
distinctly superior team on the 
day ana probably on many 
others. Indeed, me might ask 
bow bad Luton been so fortunate 
to hold such BA advantage in the 
first place. 

For David Pleat Luton’s man- 
ager, (his sixth round tie seemed 
to contain a disappointment 
beyond that of Saturday's lost 
initiative and Wednesday’s 
likely elimination in the replay 
at Goodisoo Park, ft was the 
blunt reminder of his club's 
limitations and the leeway that 
exists between his team and the 
champions, even if that margin 
was exaggerated on Saturday by 
Luton's exhausted state after 
playing four matches in seven 
days. 

The real difference between 
the two sides was not to be found 
in the personnel of the respective 
first elevens but in that of the 
first reserves, ft was a sharp 
reminder to Pleat that strong 
resources are as important in 
cup competition as they are in 
the league. 

While Luton’s little Mark 
Stein struggled manfully to re- 
place his elder brother, Brian, 
Everton's Harper slotted into 
the vacancy left by the injured 
Ratcliffe with such composure 
that his manager referred to him 
afterwards as Fnuiz. And while 
Luton’s Marc North came on 
gamely for Kiwp . who staggered 
off after keaktag his nose for 
the fourth time in his career, 
Everton’s Heath came on de- 
cisively for Pointoo. 


Pleat knows that a dub like 
Luton could never afford to keep 
a player of Heath's ability 
content with just the occasional 
first team game as Everton can. 
Bar for 77 minutes Pleat and the 
rest of Luton tried to kid 
themselves that they could over- 
come such a disparity, and had ir 

not been for an uncharacteristic 

fumble by Foster they might 
have done so. 

Yet Luton were strangely at 
odds with themselves through- 
out Where against Arsenal in 
midweek the moves had flowed 
with a purpose, now they stut- 
tered with little concept other 
than putting the ball upon rbe 
head of Harford who was strug- 
gling to justify his Mexican 

dream. 

Other would-be participants 
in that dream. Hill and Thomas, 
were also straggling with reality. 
Yet Lnton stole ahead through a 
Simple tap-in by Harford. And 
while we waited for an equalizer 
from the persistently menacing 
Lineker, Lnton broke op field for 
Stein to score after the imposing 
Southall had appeared to 
smother the danger. 

Kendall sent on Heatb and the 
very' act of substitution seemed 
to disturb the concentration of 
Luton who almost simulta- 
neously conceded a headed goal 
from Sharp. At that point the 
game was up for Lnton. 

Everton could hardly miss 
(heir prey, caged in their own 
half by ever-monoting pressure. 
Pleat likened Luton’s resistance 
to a boxer who hangs on without 
knowing how. Inevitably, Lnton 
dropped their guard, most cru- 
cially when Foster failed to 
control the ball and Heath 
jabbed it home. That seems to 
have set them op nicely for the 
knock-out on Wednesday.

Holders go 
out on 
last kick 


By Hugh Taylor 


Finalists 
after 
27 years 


By George Chesterton 


Hibernian recovered all their 
renowned fighting spirit at 
Easier Road to beat Celtic, ibe 
Scottish Cup holders, by 4-3 and 
surge into the semi-finals. Few 
games in tbe Cup's long history 
have ended on such a high note 
of drama. Twice Celtic bad gone 
into the lead, through McClair 
and McGhee, but twice Hiber- 
nian. whose recent form has 
been the despair of their 
supporters, equalized with fine 
goals from Cowan and Chis- 
holm. 

With six minutes remaining, 
excitement rose with three goals, 
including two penalties, being 
scored. The drama began with 
Cowan, who was to be the man 
of the match, putting Hibernian 
ahead for the first lime from a 
penally. Celtic replied with a 
penally of their own. McClair 
again the marksman. The cli- 
max was reached when, with 
seconds left, the two Hibernian 
substitutes combined to bring 
the winning goal, the result of a 
cross from Harris and a header 
by May. 

Tbe "Celtic blunders paled into 
insignificance beside the one 
committed by Geddes. the Dun- 
dee goalkeeper. His team, with 
17 minutes left of their absorb- 
ing quarter-final tie against 
Aberdeen, seemed on the point 
of registering a victory at Iasi 
over their northern rivals at 
Dens Park. 

They were leading 2-1. with 
goals from Harvey and Brown, 
when Geddes bent down to pick 
up a short back pass. With no 
danger looming, the goalkeeper 
took his eye off the ball and 
dropped it from bis hands. He 
bad not seen Simpson lurking 
behind him. The Aberdeen 
player pounced on the bail and 
crossed to allow Hewitt, who 
had scored earlier, to head into 
the empty net for the equalizer. 
•Scotland's football legislators 
are confident that proposals for 
a settlement with the League 
clubs threatening a breakaway 
will be accepted on Wednesday. 


Old Cholmeleians .......... 5 

Old Malvemians ..... 3 


Playing on the Highgaie 
School ground. Old 
Cholmeleians beat Old 
Malvemians after extra lime in 
a robust Arthur Dunn Cup 
semi-final of changing fortunes 
on Saturday to reach the final 
for the first time in 27 years. 

With the slope and wind in 
their favour. Cholmeleians put 
Malvern under pressure with 


positive constructive play, 
ikou doing 


Amstad and Kyriakou doing 
good work. It was against the 
run of play that Harris headed a 
high cross into the Highgate goaf 
with quarter of an hour gone. 
Ten minutes later Olivere equal- 
ized with a shot from 20 yards 
and after a similar interval and 
following a goalmouth scram- 
ble. Walton put Cholmeleians 
ahead. Olivere scored again 
from a half cleared free kick just 
before half-time. 


Hard though Malvemians 
pressed they could not penetrate 
a coof. well organized defence 
marshalled by S Savva until, 
with only 1 5 minutes left. 
Eastland who had come on at 
half-time scooped a shot home 
from ihe narrowest of angles. 
Then a superb cross from East- 
land gave Smith the chance to 
head past his namesake in the 
Highgate goal to take the match 
into extra lime. 

Shortly after the restart a 
handball rnfiringemenl enabled 
Collins to shoot Cholmeleians 
ahead from the penalty spot-By 
throwing everything into attack. 
Malvemians weme so exposed 
that S Savva was presented with 
an easy, fifth goal just before the 
final whistle. 

In the replayed quarter-final 
Old Carthusians beat Lancing 
Old Boys 1-0. the goal being 
scored seven minutes from time 
by Pennant. Tbe Carthusians 
now go through to play Old 
Brentwoods in the semi final.

Oxford’s sound victory was a 
just reward for ihcir deiermina- 
lion in recovering from a torrid 
opening spell. For the fmt 10 
minutes it looked as if Cam- 
bridge might overrun them, but 
Oxford survived the onslaught, 
thanks mainly to a remarkable 
performance by their goal- 
keeper. Karen M oaks (Christ 
Church). 

Oxford retaliated by breaking 
away to open the scoring 
through Karen Reynolds I Mer- 
ton). their captain. 3ided by 
Katharine Smdi man-Smith (St 
Hughs), who was a -constant 
thorn in Cambridge's side. De- 
spite sterling work in defence by 
Cambridge's Alison O'Neill and 
her St Catherine's colleague, 
Ann Mills. Oxford stuck to their 
guns and Penny Tact ers haw (S i 
Hughs) made rl 2-0. 

They stepped up the pace 
after the interval and enjoyed 
long- attacking spells, with 
Smalman-Smilh and 
Taitershaw adding to the tally. 
Cambridge, however, were not 
outplayed. Their work at pen- 
alty corners was impressive but

RACING: FAVOURITES LOOK WORTH OPPOSING IN CHELTENHAM GOLD CUP AND CHAMPION HURDLE

By Phil McLennan 


England’s r n turn from the 
experiments c the indoor sea- 
son. which cl - irnated with the 
defeat b> ihe united States in 
the match spr »sored by Kodak 
ai Oosford or Saturday, to the 
inals of st. ction for the 
Commonwealth Games in 
Edinburgh in late July. 

For. distant ss that may seem, 
the 7Q potent. al team members 
must show them form by June 
22. when the selections will be 
made. Since the only major 
domestic fix ures before then 
ihai arc me UK closed 
championshr's in Cwmbran on 
May 25 and 26. the Lough- 
borough v AA A match, and then 
the AAA i hampionships at 
Crystal Palace on June 20 and 
21. excursions to the Continent 
or ihe United States for meet- 
ings may be necessary for ath- 
teies.such as Sebastian Coe. He 
is one athli e going abroad in 
the at tempi .o find form which 
needs to be maintained until 
2 l\er the European champion- 
ships in Su.‘«igan one month 
after Edinbi gh. 

Individu.v performances will 
always have more meaning that 
team’ resulis in athletics. And 
the defeat of a weak England 
team by a mediocre American 
team, judged by the elevated 
standard to which both coun- 
tries aspire, is as nothing com- 
pared to ihe emergence of 
Linford Christie as another 
potential world-class sprinter, 
the consolidation by Geoff Par- 
sons of a higher plateau of 
performance, and the ultimate 
justification of Coe’s serious 
move towards longer distances. 

Coe's reappearance and vic- 
tory at 3.000 metres has done 
immeasurable good not only for 
himself but for the sport in 
general. He has had setbacks 
before, but they have usually 
been excused by injury or 
illness. In Saturday's 3.000 me- 
tres. he not only stayed with the 
last kilometre burst from Lewis 
but strode to victory on the last 
lap past the athlete, who along 
with Billy Dee. had beaten him 
over the same distance in the 
AAA Championships five weeks 
before, it was an example to any 
young athlete of the value of 
progressive work towards long- 
term objectives, in Coe's case 
the 5.000 metres, as it is an 
illustration that defeat should 
not necessarily be a discourage- 
ment. 

The latter is something that 
Lewis should realise too. He was 
bitterly disappointed by his 
defeat, but he should not be 
deterred. For if he can turn on 
that son of speed in the last 
kilometre of the world cross- 
country championships in two 
weeks' time, even the likes of 
Alberto Cova will be pressed to 
siay with him. 

Coe was still adamant after 
the race that his attempts to win 
medals at 5.000 metres must 
wan until the worid champion- 
ships in Rome in 1^87. He has 
been pre-selected for 800 metres 
in Stuttgart. But. as well as 
saying that he was against pre- 
selection. preferring to prove 
himself in trial races, he also 
said ihai the 1.500 metres was 
si ill his priority. 

Coc. who has clearly benefited 
from a recent training spell in 
Spain, could yet win his first 
major 800 metres title, and 
Stuttgart is the more likely place 
for it. since Cram and ihe 
Kenyans are the potential oppo- 
sition in Edinburgh. Christie, 
too. may be putting his eggs in 
the basket which is more likely 
to be trodden on. His indoor 
performances, especially the 
European gold medal, presage a 
200 metres time well under 21 
seconds, which, amazingly, he 
has yet to break. But he also 
confirmed on Saturday that the 
1 00 metres is his summer season 
priority. 

Parsons's 2.23 metres would 
have been good enough for 
victory, had he not been 
competing as a guest since he 
has a. Scottish qualification. 
David Sharpe won the Man of 
the Match award.

The recent historv of the 
Champion Hurdle is littered 
with multiple winners of the 
event. In the last 18 years, five 
horses have captured 
hurdling's most coveted prize 
mice- while Persian War com- 
pleted a notable treble in 1970. 

‘This suggests two things 
which may assist in finding 
the winner of tomorrow's 57* h 
running of the Champion 
Hurdle: that few of the many 
promising young hurdlers to 
emerge each season reach the 
very top flight: and that 
previous winners of the race 
merit the utmost respect. 

Bearing this in mind, it will 
come as no surprise if See You 
Then, the reigning champion, 
justifies his position at the 
head of the market. However, 
while his victories 1 2 months 
ago and in this season's Oteley 
Hurdle, were achieved with 
great authority, ftis overall 
record does not entitle him to 
be 5-4 on. That represents 
appalling value. 

The other Champion Hur- 
dle winner in the field is Gaye 
Brief, who was one of the most 
impressive recent scorers for 
Mercy RimelJ in 1983. He 
would have been a worthy 
favourite to retain his title the 
following season, but tom 
back ligaments 10 days before 
the race ruled him out and 
presented the prize to Dawn 
Run. 

Gaye Brief has since slipped 
from grace, starting with a 
comprehensive defeat by 
Browne's Gazette in the 1984 
Bula Hurdle and culminating 
in a tame effort against seem- 
ingly inferior opponents at 
Liverpool last spring. This 
season, even in victory at 
Ascot, he has not shown his 


former brilliance and at nine, 
he has been written off by 
many, including the book- 
makers who offer an insulting- 
ly generous 20-1. 

However, those who believe 
that Gaye Brief is simply too 
old should remember that Sea 
Pigeon was L 1 when he won 
his second Champion and that 
Comedy Of Errors was eight 
when he collected his second 
title for Mrs Ritnell's late 
husband, Fred, in 1975. Inci- 
dentally. Comedy Of Errors is 
the only horse ever to regain 
the hurdling crown. 

Gaye Brief has not run since 
Boxing Day, but the long lay- 
off could well prove to his 
advantage. As with many 
horses who have a slightly 
suspect temperament, he is at 
his best when fresh and it is 
worth noting that be has won 
first lime out in each of his 
five seasons. 

Another factor in Gaye 
Briefs favour is the probable 
large field. When he won the 
1983 Champion, the field of 
1 7 was the largest for 14 years 
and Richard Linley was able 
io keep him covered up for 
most of the race and conserve 
his speed. With 28 declared at 
the four-day stage and most of 
them . probable runners, Peter 
Scudamore should be able to 
delay Gaye Briefs challenge 
until the last and then use his 
acceleration to telling effect 

Just as See You Then 


appears poor value for the 
Champion. I believe those at 
the head of the ante-post lists 
for the Gold Cup are under- 
priced. Dawn Run's inexperi- 
ence and change of rider seem 
likely to prove her undoing in 
such a demanding race and 
Forgive 'n* Forget the second

Frank Berry, ihe former Irish Champion jockey, has been booked

W.000 Waterford Crystal Champion Hurdle at CheUenham 


■v - W .’•’ r 







From Our Irish Racing CortcspewfcBt, DoMin^ 








Gaye Brief, the former tide holder, whose finishing speed could prove decisive in die large 
field for tomorrow’s Champion Hurdle 

favourite, won a sub-standard Champion Chase, despite not trained suggests he could be 


Gold Cup 12 months ago. 

Combs Ditch has twice 
failed in the Gold Cup. buL 
judged on this season's form 
atone, he is entitled to be 
favourite. The ease of his Still 
Fork Trucks Gold Cup win 
under 1 1st 91b in December 
was one of the joys of the 
season and improved his over- 
all good Cheltenham record. 

He was receiving only 21b 
from Forgive 'n’ Forget when 
beating turn by 7 x h lengths at 
Haydock in January and the 
fact that he has not raced since 
is likely to be in his favour as, 
like Gaye Brief, he is at his 
best when fresh. 

One of the freshest horses at 
the Festival will be Badsworth 
Boy. who goes for bis fourth 
successive Queen Mother

having run since completing 
the treble 12 months ago- He 
has never quite received the 
acclaim he deserves and I am 
hopeful that Monica Dickin- 
son can produce him fit 
enough to thwart the 
Bo bshn e-Buck House chal- 
lenge. Kathies Lad, a Chelten- 
ham and Liverpool winner 12 
months ago. appeals as an 
each-way alternative. 

With Martin Pipe’s horses 
bubbling, anything he runs at 
the Festival is worthy of the 
closest attention and Roark is 
my idea of the meeting's best 
bet in the Triumph Hurdle. 
The fact that Pipe has the 
Champion Hurdle second 
favourite. Corporal Ginger, in 
his yard and yet believes 
Roark is the best he has 


head and shoulders above his 
contemporaries. 

Tom Bill, another trainer 
for whom 1 have great regard, 
had a winner at both Chelten- 
ham and Aintree last year and 
his best chance at this year’s 
Festival appears to lie with 


Cross Master, already a Chel- 
tenham winner over fences, in 


tenham winner over fences, in 
the Sun Alliance Chase. 

Other less-fashionable 
trainers with realistic chances 
include Lynn Siddall with 
Shean Lad in the Waterford 
Crystal Supreme Novices' 
Hurdle and Chuck Spares, 
who runs Ibn Majed in the 
Sun Alliance Hurdle. 

Music Be Magic, unbeaten 
over fences, can retain that 
record in the Arkle Challenge.

To » otrisHer the Irish 

preoccupation with the National 
Hunt Festival al Cheltenhaa 
might seem strange Indeed. AH 
through the winter months^ ytW 
ki the impression that psh 
owners add trainers hare only 
one thoffghi in Blind — to have a 
runner and, eren better, a wtaaer 
at the big meeting- This a flrfnde 
is rery much a post-War innova- 
tion and the old stages red 

yon that in the pre-War days. 

the Aintree Grand National 
ruled supreme in the hearts of 
Irish jumping enthusiasts. 

The credit for this trans- 
formation caa be divided op 
between three men. Charfie 
fingers, Tom Draper and Vfo- 
ceut O’Brien who burst upon the 
Cheltenham scene m the dosing 
years of the 1940s. • 

The Irish saga has by no 
nw-arx been confined to a hand- 
ful of big names, though, and 
over the past 40 years some of 
the most raptnriras receptions 
have been afforded to winners 
hailing from small staMes, snch 
as the Champion Hurdle vktoiy 
of the one-^ed Winning Fair 
from the two-horse stable of 
George Spencer. . 

Mach of the Cheltenham - 
atmosphere derives from the 
annual attendance of a highly 
par tisan crowd of Irish support- 
ers ready and wilting to cheer 
home even the rankest of out- 
siders- For Aer Liagns, this is 
one of the busiest operations of 


the entire year and Bi rmingham 
Airport wflj be packed to capac- 
ity with arrivals tonight (Mon) 
and departures that seem to go 
on all through Thursday evening 
and dose to dawn. 

)j<j year the Irish boaters in 
the main returned home poorer 
but wiser with only two winners 
for more than 40 reamers. The . 
total of challengers will be much 
the same thik week, bat after the 
easy win of Canute Express in 


the - toiaf* AW Hurdle g

It is also hard to get a way 
from an . Irish . ■ viriaij in 
tomorrow's opening eeriest, the 
Waterford .- Oystel Sapreme 
Novices* Hurdle. The key here 
appears to hate beenthe Pnrpdl

Peter Easterby, the successful 
Yorkshire trainer, has already 
shown that be has been able to 
keep his team in trim during the 
freeze-up by sending out a 
couple of winners from his base 
near Mai ion since racing re- 
sumed. 

Today. Record Harvest, bis 
only runner, at Ayr. should be a 
third after the first division of 
the Slaphouse Novices’ Hurdle: 
While both Caro's Gift and 11 
Castagano have something to 
recommend them, 1 still much 
prefer Record Harvest whose 
overall form looks the more i 
solid and he is my nap. 

After finishing second at 1 
Wetherby in November to Dan 
The Millar, a useful horse 
trained by Monica Dickinson, 1 
who still rates an engagement in 
tomorrow’s Waterford Crystal 
Supreme Novices* Hurdle al 
Cheltenham. Record Harvest 
then returned to the same 
Yorkshire course the following 
month to beat Shean Lad by six 
lengths. 

In the meantime Shean Lad 
has given the form added 
credibility by winning the valu- , 
able Rossington Main Hurdle al 
Doncaster, where II Castagano 
who had been the medium of a 
successful gamble at Catterick 
only six days earlier, was among 
those who finished well adrift. 
In the circumstances Record 
Harvest looks a good bet to beat 
II Castagano now. 

Having finished a creditable 
second to the subsequent 
Sandown winner. Sonny One 
Shine, over today's course and 
distance in January Impecaaios- 
Hy should be bard to beat in the 
second division. 

If what Jenny Pitman says 
about The A Train, her impres- 
! sive ‘bumper* winner at War- 
wick at the beginning of 
February is correct. Ethels 
Course should open her account 
in the Grunwick Stakes NH Flat 
Race. A half sister to those 
useful jumpers. Plundering. 
Conquering and Golden Min- 
strel. Ethels Course shaped like 
a future winner on her debut 
when she finished third behind 
The A Train. who is regarded as 
something a bit special by his 
trainer. 

With three winners to his 
credit since the resumption, the 
other member of that remark- 
able Easterby family, Mick, has 
also signalled that his horses can 
be followed with confidence. So 
1 go for Skewsby to win the 
Ossington Handicap Chase al 
Southwell. In fact Easterby is 
clearly determined not to let the 
grass grow under this ones feet 
because he has already run 
Skews by twice since the freeze 
ended, initially at Catterick 
where he was pulled up and 
again at Market Rasen only two 
days later, where he was runner- 
up to The Last Prince. 

Finally. Tawny Spirit, an 
absentee’ at Catterick last 
Wednesday, because his trainer. 
Jimmy Fitzgerald, was unhappy 
about the state of the ground, is 
taken to make up for lost time 
and win the first division of the 
Egmanion Novices' Hurdle. 
Closely related on his dam’s side 
to Fair Kitty, still one of 
Fitzgerald's favourites. Tawny 
! Spirit ran well enough in his first 
! race over hurdles at Market 
Rasen, having won his bumper 
there, to suggest that he must be 
followed.

Queen Mother 
has treble 


POINT-TO-POINT 


A treble for the Queen Mother 
delighted a big crowd at 
Sandown Park on Saturday 
when raring resumed in the 
south for the first time since 
February 5. The Queen Mother. 
National Hunt racing's most 
respected and popular owner, 
came down to the saddling 
enclosure each time to welcome 
her winners and to talk to her 
trainers, Fulke Walwyn and Ian 
Balding. 


Urser earns place in Foxhunters’ 


By Brian Beel 


Her first winner was 
Monaveen at Fontwell in Octo- 
ber 1 949, and she recalled 
having a treble only once before 
- ai Lingfield about 25 years ago 
with The Rip, LafFy.ond Double 
Star. The Queen Mother, who 
will be 86 in August, was visibly 
delighted with her three win- 
ners. and said: "Its a great thrill. 
Horses never fail to surprise 
one. do they. 


The royal treble was started 
by Special Cargo, winner of the 
Horse and Hound Grand Mili- 
tary Gold Cup for the third year 


running. Then Insular ( 1 4- 1 j. on 
loan from the Queen’s Flat 


raring string, landed the moist 
valuable prize of the afternoon. 


valuable prize of the afternoon, 
the £15,000 added William Hill 
Imperial Cap. Finally, The 
Argonaut (7-2) became the 
Queen Mother’s 364th winner 
in all when landing the Dick 
McC retry Cup Past and Present 
Amateur Riders Chase. i 


Runners were plentiful at all 12 
point-to-points on Saturday. 
The unlucky 1 3th was the Sooth 
Down and E ridge where a thick 
mist kept the sun- at bay and 
prevented the frost coming out 
of the ground in time. 

Urser. impressive when win- 
ning at the Derwent with Nicky - 
Smith on board, will now take 
his chance in the Christies 
Foxhunters’ at Cheltenham on 
Thursday. At this ’meeting. 
Anthea Beaumont damaged her 
collar-bone in restraining the 
hard pulling Ray GilL so she is 
unlikely to be able to ride the 
well fancied J J Henry at Ayr 
today. 

In winning the ladies at the 
West Percy, Flying Ace showed 
he was none the worse for 
Wednesday's falL His arch rival. 
Foolish Hero, was able to take 
advantage of the two Northern 
meetings by avoiding him and 

going to the Cumberland Fann- 
ers to give Gillian Minto her 
second win on him in four days. 

In the two divided maiden 
races at the Dtmton Harriers, 
John Fanshawe, an assistant to ' 
Michael Stoute. put up a very 
polished performance when 
winning on Smoker and on 
Linda's Qub to give their 
trainer, Gil) Duffirid, her third 
winner from four starts. 


Libby Lees, whose stable was 
plagued by the virus Iasi season, 
showed at the Oakley that all 
her horses were in fine fettle 
with wins by Lakin and Corked 
and seconds by Martin eau and 
Mr Mellors. 

The Land Rover qualifier at 
the North Ledbury was won in 
impressive fashion by John 
Deutsch on Paddy's Peril and 
they will be going on to the 
Chepstow finaL As point-to- 
point enthusiasts swell ' the 
crowd at this course on Spring 
Bank Holiday Monday it seems 
particularly penny-pinching that 
the Chepstow executive have

• The Sandown stewards held an inquiry into the poor 
performance of Quickstep, favourite for the W illiam HID Imperial 
Cup. Paul Leach, the jockey, reported that the gelding was always 
struggling alter the first flight and was never jumping well. Pipe said 
he was most disappointed with Quickstep's performance and was 
unable to account for the poor running. The stewards accepted the 
explanations arid ordered the gelding to be routine dope tested.

objected to the Duke . of 
Beaufort's application to re- 
arrange their once a year fixture 
for next Saturday, on the day of 
their March 2 meeting. 

Whilst this .unsporting gesture 
was made, no doubt, in the best 
interests of Chepstow race- 
course shareholders, it was the 
Jockey Club's decision, not 
theirs, which"" disallowed - ihe 
Beaufort application. Having set 
up the working party to report 
on the future of the sport, the 
Jockey Club have shown- Utile 
sympathy, on this occasion, to 
those who-are struggling for this

Horizon film shows 
Mitterrand's France to be so far 
ahead of Thatcher’s Britain 
that you would not think they 
were even running in the 
same race And compounding 
this wounding of our national 


documentary ends with the 
sinister thought that France's 
desire to be part of European 
research and development 
programmes such as Eureka 
could simply be a massive 
French plot to pull in expertise 
from other countries to 
achieve goals that are 
exclusively French; a 
Machiavellian strategy to ensure 
national survival. noTess

The ltiktach Black Fire crossing the 24-arch Ribbleshead Viaduct yesterday. 

By Peter Davenport 


The three-year campaign to 
save the Settle to Carlisle 
raiiway moves towards its 
final stages this month. 

A series of public hearings 
organized by Transport Users' 
Consultative Committees will 
take place later this month 
into the hardships that would 
be Cali the communities dotted 
along the 72-miie stretch of 
railway that goes through 
some of Britain's most dra- 
matically scenic countryside. 

lip to 250 objectors to 
British Rail's closure plans 
are expected to give evidence 
in person and many others will 
supply written submissions at 
the 15-day hearing to take 
place in Appleby and Carlisle 
in Cambria, and at Settle, 
Skipton and Leeds in York- 
shire. 

Since the anno on cement to 
close the line on May 1, 1984, 
a total of 22,265 people (and 
one regular, fare paying dog) 
have lodged formal objections. 

The closure threat has pro- 


duced one of the most orches- 
trated environmental 
campaigns yet mounted 

The latest exercise aimed at 
persuading British Rail to 
change its mind came at the 
weekend when the West York- 
shire Metropolitan Comity 
Council, in one of its final acts 
prior to abolition, spent 
£10.000 chartering a special 
train, a sort of rolling propa- 
ganda vehicle, to take 400 
steam enthusiasts and anti- 
closnre campaigners along the 
route. 

The 10-coarh special, which 
sold out its £25 a head tickets, 
left Leeds station behind one 
of Britain's most famoas 
steam locomotives, the Black 
Five. No 5305, which drew 
hundreds of photographers 
along the route. 

On board were an array of 
campaigners, ranging from 
steam enthusiasts who record- 
ed every sound and photo- 
graphed every angle of the 
train, to councillors and tour- 


ism officials who argued that 
the line deserved to be retained 
not just because of its scenic 
attraction but because of the 
vital role it played in providing 
a life-line to remote towns. 

The increased usage of the 
route, largely due to the pub- 
licity generated by the cam- 
paigners, meant mat the line 
returned a £1 million operat- 
ing profit last year although 
British Rail argues that even 
that is not sufficient to justify 
the £20 million it says is 
needed for repairs and upgrad- 
ing the line: especially on the 
imposing 24-arch Ribblebead 
viaduct which takes the line 
through its most dramatic 
stretch of scenery. 

The figures are challenged 
by supporters who argue that 
it needs only half that figure 
for repairs and that with 
proper promotion and revised 
services the line could doable 
its number of passengers and 
eventually earn profits of np to 
£4 million a year. 


Miners’ pay deal 
to be extended 


By Craig Seton 


The National Coal Board 
has acted to avert a confronta- 
tion with the Union of Demo- 
cratic Mineworkers (UDM) 
over a pay rise negotiated by 
the new union last year, which 
is still not being paid to some 
of its members. 

An estimated 4,000 UDM 
members failed to get the 5.9 
per cent increase agreed Iasi 
November because they were 
outnumbered by members of 
the National Union of 
Mineworkers whose leaders 
have yet to negotiate an 
annual pay rise. 

The UDM leaders, who 
claim 40,000 members - 
mostly in the Midlands - 
issued a writ against the coal 
board last week in an attempt 
to force it to pay the rise to 
members who were in a 


minority in their workplaces. 

Now the board has decided 
that the increase can be paid 
not just to UDM members 
where they are in a majority, 
but where the new union is 
“established” in certain areas. 

The arrangement is under- 
stood to apply to UDM mem- 
bers principally in the North - 
east and in Lancashire. 

It means that UDM mem- 
bers in some areas will get the 
extra money even though they 
are in a minority, while NUM 
men working alongside them 
will be paid less. 

The board is offering talks 
with both unions on the 
possibility of setting up new 
conciliation machinery now 
that two unions represent 
miners doing the same work. 


Village Voice 

Father’s 
thwarted by 



Victor Zoiza this week' describes fimn 
village the plight of a father win vrantete 
son to Stave a good education bntK thTOrt^byaedram 
on his meagre resources of Alness m tfaefamily- 


My neighbour's son was always han g in g 
around my hut with other village children, 
but he was different While they observed 
my strange ways silently, Prakash ne ver 
stopped asking questions. Why did I eat 
with a fork when everybody used thor 

fingers? Why did I boil my water? He was tor 

more intelligent *han the other boys and 
could go tor, I told his father — but only nhe 
sent him away to be educated. 

Should he send his son to a government 
school, the fanner-priest asked, or to a 

religious ashram where he would be taught 
Sanskrit? With the learning acquired at the 
ashram, he said, Prakash would be much 
sought after for priestly duties and would be 
generously rewarded. Ratiram, his father, 
would be well looked after in his old age. 

What, Ratiram asked, was the good of a 
town education? The boy would return with 
strange ideas — “if he returns at all” — and 
would regard work in the fields as beneath 
him- Ratiram tod obviously made up his 
mind and had come to ask my advice only 
out of politeness. He did not want me to feel 
that he had rejected a neighbor's counsel, 
without giving it full consideration. But 
there was still a year or two to go before 
Prakash would be ready to leave the village. . 
His father might yet change his mind. 

I hoped that if Prakash did go to school, 
and perhaps even to college, he might 
acquire the education and the seifassurance 
which would enable him to help the 
community, speak to officials on its behalf 
and protect it from outsiders wh o cam e to 
exploit it. He was not yet in his teens but 
wise beyond his years. His intelligence and 
strength of character, I thought, should 
enable him to absorb the best that education 
had to offer. I might be wrong, though, and 
must not interfere. 

But leave the village he would, for the 
ashram if not for the school and R ati r am 
had long been saving the money that would 
be needed. It was not easy. He was poorer 
than most of the village Brahmins, and the 
family survived on a diet of rice and lentils . 
barely sufficient to keep body and soul 
together. The last harvest had been poor and 
the new crop had not yet ripened. • 

They managed without essentials Hire 
kerosene for the lamp and without matches, 
using flint and tinder to light the kitchen 
fire. Fuel was fine, for Ratiram gathered 
firewood on the hills, though it might often - 
take a whole day to procure a week’s supply. 
This was woman's work, but their year-old 
baby had fallen ill and someone had to stay, 
with it aU the time. The evil spirit which bad 


entered the child refosed to be exorcised by 
magir Ratiram first fried a quack and then 
an Ayurvedic physician who prescribed 
herbal potions, but aH to no avail FmaBy be 
brayed the unfamiliar hazards of a tong, 
journey to a doctor in town. _ ■ . . 

The baby was half the size it Should have 

been, and the doctor had CQactaded few the 
r t»p<ft«nt vomiting had deprived it of fee ■ 
nutrition it needed. The drngs he prescribed 
helped, but the improvement was sftort- 
lived. Ratiraai's repealed journeys to town, 
the bus tores, fee medic ines. Ipok time and 

Savings spent to buy two 
tins of powdered milk 

money he could til afford. He did what work" 
he could in the fields* but I often saw him 
pacing up and down the lane; rocking the. 
Crying baby in his arms, white his wife was 
busy with the cooking and other chores. 

Less work in the fields' would mean a 
smaller crop and even less food for the 
famil y and nutrition for the baby. It was not 
long before the chikfs illness bad consumed 
almost all they bad saved forPcakash's 
education. : • 

In a shop window in town, when Ratiram 
tori taken the drikl toibedoaor, he had 
seen tins of powdered milk adorned with a 
happy, smiling baby's face — a totter baby, 
he told me, than he had ever laid his eyes 
upon. This, he said, was .the. nutrition his. 
child lacked, and he used the toss of his 
savings to bay a couple of tins. 

. But the teby stiff cannot keep its food 
. down. Several otter village infants, similar- 
ly afflicted, have net survived. This is foe 
youngest of his four children. Prakash is the 
eldest He had two more, but they died 

Ratiram and his wife are in their earl? 
thirties and will no doubt have more 
children. But Ratiram no longer talks of his 
plans for Prakash. “We'll never be able to 
save enough,” te says, “and if we dtvit'H go 
like this lot has. There's always .some 
misfortune or other.” 

The boy wffl probably go neither to school 
in town norto the ashram. He still visits my 
hut, but sits listlessly in the comer. 

He asks no more questions.

Nature notes 


Suddenly the countryside is 
full of song, as male birds make 
up for lost time in establishing 
their breeding territories: their 
song warns off other males, and 
attracts a female. Greenfinches, 
goldfinches and yeflowhammers 
have begun to sing in the lanes; 
meadow-pipits have begun their 
fluttering song flights over 
heaths and moors. Starlings sit 
in their future nest-hole, singing, 
with only their heads showing. 
Blackbirds are coining into full 
song: a fluty outburst, with a 
hoarse afterthought. 


On roc! 
choosing 
long-taile 


ky streams, dippers are 
_ nest sites in the banks; 
iied tits are prospecting 
sick hawthorns in which to start 
their domed nest. Most other 
small birds will wait till the 
leaves are appearing. 
Woodpidgeons have begun 
feeding oo the softening leaf- 
buds of the elm trees; bull- 
finches are scattering the buds 
on hawthorns and fruit trees, 
especially those of dessert ap- 
ples. 

Two-spot and seven-spot 
ladybirds are coming out of 
crevices where they hibernated. 
Flowers like small yellow pin 
cushions are open on the cor- 
nelian cherries: these trees are 
actually dogwoods, not cherries, 
and there are two species quite 
common now in English paries, 
one from southern Europe and 
one from Japan. DJM
