on 


Unionist leaders yesterday 
attempted to reopen diaingn? 
with the Prime Minis ter over 
the Anglo-Irish agreement as 
the Government prepared for 
the f ourth meeting Of the joint 
ministerial conference in Bet 
test this morning. 

A letter from Mr James 
Molyneaux, leader of the Offi- 
cial Unionist Party, and the 
Rev Ian Paisley, leader of the 
Democratic Unionists, reject- 
ed the Government’s basis for 
further discussion, but said 
they wanted to “create the 
framework wi thin which dia- 
logue can take place”. 

Resolutions passed by the 
executive ofboth parties want 
all-party talks on devolution 
to begin on die basis of the 
agreement being suspended, 
an idea the Government has 
rejected. 

The. Unionists suggest that 
after all-party talks in the 
province, three-way discus- 
sions between London, Dub- 
lin and Belfast could begin 
aimed at reaching agreement 
on some form of relationship 
with the Irish Republic. 

The letter was sent to the 
Prime Minister at the end of 
last week when the two lead- 
ers, in particular Mr 
Molyneaux, were alarmed by 
the violence and intimidation 
of the Unioni5t24bonrday of 
action. Although the terms 
offer little sign of compromise, 
and there was suspicion in 
government aides that they 
were an attempt to mislead 
Mrs Thatcher, Unionist lead- 
ers are anxious to get 


ftwn Richard Fort, Belfast 

“loyalist” opposition on a 
constitutional p*ty ' 

In private, some Unionists 
admit that it is impossible to 
expect the Prime Minister, 
particularly after die violence, 

to suspend the Anglo-Irish 
agreement. But both Unionist 
leaders have suggested that 
some “other mechanism” 
could be found. 

However, the Government 
has to decide whether it 
believes Mr Paisley and Mr 
' Molyneanx can bring the bulk 
of their parties to support their 
decisions. 

- The dear divisions bet w een 
the two parties were shown in 
their response to a rebuke 
from the Northern Ireland 

It 

newspaper advertisements ac- 
cusing the Unionist leaders of 
attempting to exert political 
pressure on the police. 

The advertisement was a 
response to a Unionist mes- 
sage daiming that the Anglo- 
Irish agreement had radically 
altered the role of Ulster 
officers and that in these 
“trying times” no-one could 
run away from making a 
choice. 

Mr Tom King , Secretary of 
Stale' for Northern Ireland, 
denounced the Unionist mes- 
sage as misleading and irre- 
sponsible. The . police 
authority said the Unionists 
had not quoted fully tbe artide 
of the Anglo-Irish agreement 
concerning the work of the 
RUC, and masted that tire 
police were not “tasked” to 
police the sgreemem. 


The Unionist action was 
seen by the Northern Ireland 
Office and RUC as a further 
attempt to undermine police 
morale. 

Yesterday Mr Molyneaux 
showed dear signs of regret- 
ting putting bis to The 
message and said that be 
welcomed the police authority 
insistence that the RUC was 
free from political interfer- 
ence. 

Mr. Molyneanx denied the 
advertisement was a rebuff 
saying that he and Mr Paisley 
had pu blished their message 
and ihit had persuaded the 
authority to issue a dear and 
unamb iguous AH ttine of the 
control and direction the 
force: 

Mr Molyneanx said the 
advertisement showed that 
the minister of a foreign power 
had no control over the force. 
“We were not seeking to 
interfere as politicians,” he 
said. 

Mr Mofyneanx’s reaction 
contrasted with that of Mr 
Peter Robinson, deputy leader 
of the Democratic Unionists, 
who accused the authority of 
“double standards” and de- 
scribed its members as 
“placemen appointed by the 
Government, doing their 

masters* bidding ** 

It is now generally thought 
that the DUPand its hardline 
dements are leading protests 
against the agreement, with 
the Official Unionists and Mr 
Molyneanx increasingly fol- 
lowing in their wake.

Kinnock 

rejects 

rebels’ 

rescue 

By Philip Webster 
Political Reporter 

Labour Party leaders last 
night denied the claims of left- 
wing councillors that Mr Nefl 
Kinnock had agreed to indem- 
nity them against surcharges 

and feipHilififflriniK. 

Tire counter claims came 
after a meeting of Labour’s 
local government committee 
had decided that a hardship 
fond should be set up to relieve 
the financial difficulties suf- 
fered by coudDors in Liver- 
pool and Lambeth, south 
London, who last week lost 
their appeal against sur- 
charges and disqnalificatioB 
from local office for five years. 

The differing interpreta- 
tions of the committee's move 
threatens the reopening of the 
Hamagfag divisi on s In the 
party about retrospective in- 
demnities which dominated 
last year’s Labour conference. 

It came on the day that 
Labour’s national executive 
committee agreed on the pro- 
cedure which could lead to 12 
Militant Tendency sympathiz- 
ers from Liverpool being ex- 
pelled from the party on 
March 26. 

It was confirmed last night 
that charges against four id 
foe original alleged offenders 
had been dropped. Details of 
foe charges drawn up by Mr 
Larry Whitty, the general 
secretary, against the 12 were 
disclosed last night 

Mr Derek Hatton, deputy 
leader of Liverpool Council, 
has been charged with abuse 
of foe rules, constitution and 
standing orders of the party, 
involvement in the Militant 
Tendency mid activities which 
could bring the party into 
disrepute. 

Mr Tony Mtdbeara, presi- 
dent of foe district parity, has 
been charged with abuse of the 
roles and involvement in foe 
Militant Tendency. 

Others have been charged 
with abase, involvement aid 
activities that could bring the 
party into disrepute. 

On March 26, foe NEC 
derided yesterday, Mr Whitty 
.atfll present 4he-cfiiqses and 
foe 12 will given an opportuni- 
ty off responding in writing or 
orally. 

Mr Whitty told the execu- 
tive yesterday that if member- 
ship of Militant was proved to 
its satisfaction there was only 
one penalty and that was 
expulsion. 

In the local government 
committee Mr Kinnock and 
other Shadow Cabinet mem- 
bers had emphasized the limit- 
ed nalme of the compensation 
arrangements proposed. 

Mr Khmorh said: “We owe 
it to the people concerned not 
to entertain fantasies or kid 
people, but to help those in foe 
I greatest hardship.” 

Bat immediately after the 
meeting Mr Ted Knight, lead- 
er of Lambeth and one of foe 
81 surcharged councillors, 
t-faimprf fhflt the committee 
had been categoric over com- 
pensation, the lifting of dis- 
qualification and ever raising 
tends for an appeaL 

He claimed that Mr 
Kinnock had agreed that a 

Labour government could 

move to tift the ban and pay 
out compensation. 





In a macabre confirmation 
of earlier threats, the mysteri- 
ous Islamic Jilted organiza- 
tion yesterday produced 
pictures of what it claimed 
was the body of the French 
hostage Michel Seurat, and 
said be was killed last 
Wednesday. 

The claim and pictures 
came as France launched a 
diplomatic drive to secure the 
release of eight French hos- 
tages held in Lebanon tty pro- 
Iranian Muslim extremists. 

One of the three black and 
white photographs showed the 
man lying bare-chested with 
'his eyes halfdosed, while 
another showed a body 
wrapped in a blanket inside a a 
co ffin. The third showed the 
closed coffin, a crucifix on foe 
lid. 

A statement left with the 
said they were intended to 
leave no doubts “about the 
seriousness of our earlier 
claim ” There was no indica- 
tion of when or where foe 
photos were taken, but foe 
pictures were the first evi- 
dence produced by the kid- 
nappers to support their claim 
that they bad killed M SeuraL 

The statement denied an 
earlier claim by an anony- 
mous telephone caller that 
Islamic Jihad had kidnapped 
the four French television 
newsmen seized in west Beirut 
on Saturday. 


Industry costs fall 


Industry’s raw material and 
fuel costs have fallen by 9.5 
per cent over the past year — 
the biggest annual decline 
since the 1950s — according to 
Government figures. 

The fall is because of lower 
olL, commodity and domestic 


energy prices, and the pound’s 
relatively strong performance 
against the dollar. 

The prices charged by in- 
dustry rose by 5 per cent in the 
12 months to February, the 
smallest rise for more than ten 
years. Page 17 


Carrington plea to Spain 



From Richard Owen 
Brossels 

Lord Carrington, the Nato 
Secretary-General, yesterday 
made a last-minute appeal to 
Spanish voters to back Senor 
Felipe Gonzdlez, the Spanish 
Prime Minister, and vote 
“yes” in tomorrow’s referen- 
dum on Nato membership. 

Lord Carrington said a “no” 
vote would be a big political 
setback fin* the West and 
would run counter to Spam's 
efforts to “come out of its 
shell” and end its isolation 
from Western Europe. 

Withdrawal from Nato so 
soon after joining the EEC 
would be “an illogical thing to 
do” and would hurt Spain 
more than the alliance. 

“I hope even at this late 
stage they won't doit,” he told 


The Times in an interview at 
Nato headquarters “I hope 
very much the Spanish people 
realize that the Western Alli- 
ance is as much European as 
American and that it is an 
essential part of the European 
Community and political co- 
operation”. 

Lord Carrington empha- 
sized that Spain’s withdrawal 
would not necessarily spell the 
end of its association with 
Nato in the long term. He also 
underlined Nato’s continuing 
strength and cohesion, point- 
ing out that it has existed for 
36 years, whereas Spain has 
been a member for only four 
years. 

A “no" vote in foe referen- 
dum would not necessarily 
reflect what the people of 
Spain really wanted, he said. 


since the right-wing parties 
were urging voters to abstain, 
even though they were pro 
Naio. “You may ge l an answer 
which is not wholly 
representative.” 

On arms control. Lord 
Carrington said there bad 
been movement forward in 
talks on medium-range mis- 
siles in Europe, with the 
Russians prepared to balance 
SS20s against cruise and Per- 
shing 2 missiles, provided 
British and French nuclear 
forces were frozen. 

The drawback, however, 
was that Britain and France 
could not be expected to 
accept “perpetual nuclear 
obsolescence”,

Testing Sir and Miss on the three Rs m Texas 


L*«r grpert 4 


By Michael Binyon 
Washington 

School tables have been, 
turned ea foe teachers m 
Texas. After months of ner- 
roas swotting, protests, and 
attempts to pl*y 
200,000 teachers were yester- 
day sweating it out in class- 
rooms across foe state takmg 
their exams, while their gfee- 
fid pupils were given foe day 
off. 

The teachers were being 
tested to see if they really 
knew bow to teachJSoae 95 
per o Bit are expected to reach 
the passmark, set at a mlai- 

ifinm of 75 per cesf. ■ 

Bat foe KMW0 Kkely to 
flunk their exams and foe 


make-op test on Jose 28 win 
have to drop opt of school 
rather late in life. 

The foDares wffl be dis- 
missed next year, and barred 
from iparfiing raless their 
schools can make oot a spedal 
case to keep them on. And 
even then, they wifl have to 
bone up on then* three Rs and 
take foe exam again. 

The compulsory competen- 
cy test is part of a wide- 
ranging effort by Governor 
Mark White to raise academic 
standards in. foe Lone Star 
state, and predictably has 
drawn bowls of anguished 
outrage from the teachers. The 
reform Bill was passed in 
19S4, and era* awe then 


teachers hate been lobbying 
against this day off reckoning. 

Two weeks ago, some 2,500 
marched on the state Educa- 
tion Office in Austin. Last 
week, lawyers for the Texas 
State Teachers' Association 
tried in vain to block foe exam 
in court.’ 

The exam consisted of 85 
maltiple-cboice questions and 
a short essay — 150 words 
long. The teachers’ examiners 
wOl hand out foe marks at foe 
beginning of May. 

Teachers have been going to 
crammers to help them nmg np 
basic reading and writing 
skills. 

Some of foe practice ques- 
tions include the 


foIlowing?* i Wbere could an 
educator find a set of syn- 
onyms and antonyms for a 
particular word? A. an ency- 
clopaedia, Ban index, C, a 
thesaurus, D, a bibliography” 
(AnswerC.) 

Another question runs: 
“Read foe following, adapted 
from an education textbook; 
Grades should be based on foe 
summarive evaluation, not the 
formative one. Which of foe 
following is foe best definition 
of summadre as nsed above? 
A.Tbe initial diagnosis prior 
to instruction; B.The final 
assessment after instruction; 
C.Tbe intermediate assess- 
ment midway into 
iostrnetiomD.The annual 


standardized test's results” 
(AnswenB.) 

Governor White argues that 
teachers should be willing to 
accept the test as a fair 
exchange for what they gained 
from the 1984 BDL, including 
upgraded pay-scales, smaller 
classes, and guaranteed prepa- 
ration times in school hoars. 

Arkansas and Georgia have 
attempted to test teachers. But 
as the controversial movement 
to pay teachers merit money 
according to their abilities to 
teach gathers momentum 
across the country, other 
states are watching Texas to 
see whether yesterday’s bis 
exam leads to real improve- 
ment in the classroom.

French hostage 
shown ‘dead’ 

From Oar Correspondent, Beirut 


Islamic Jihad's latest claim 
was made amid efforts by 
Paris to secure foe release of 
the eight Frenchmen. Emis- 
saries to Lebanon and Syria 
began yesterday a series of 
contacts in Beirut and Damas- 
cus. 

The effort appeared to have 
suffered a setback, however, as 
Iran, considered the key to 
establishing contacts with 
Shia Muslim fundamentalists 
in Lebanon, refused to issue a 
visa to a third envoy. 

The Islamic Jihad state- 
ment said: “We insist that foe 
lives of the three remaining 
hostages depends oil how 
quickly foe Bench Govern- 
ment meets our demands 
which are vere dear and 
detailed. Therefore it should 
spare itself despatching en- 
voys whose missions have no 
justification other than fooling 
foe French public and betray- 
ing its interests." 

M Seurat was kidnapped in 
west Beirut last May. Islamic 
Jihad held him and three other 
Frenchmen hostage, demand- 
ing France stop supplying i 
aims to Iraq. 

The demands have broad- 
ened, however, to include foe , 
return of two pro-Iranian 
Iraqis deported to Baghdad 
after they were captured in an 
anti-terrorist dragnet in Paris 
last month.

Prescription charges are to 
rise by 20p. at close to double 
foe rate of inflation, to £2.20p, 
but there is to be no increase 
in denial charges or charges 
for spectacles. Mr Barney 
Hayhoe, Minister for Health, 
said yesterday. 

This means prescription 
charges have risen eleven-fold 
from 2 Op in 1979 when foe 
Conservatives came to power. 

The increase was criticized 
yesterday by opposition MPs 
and Ity foe British Medical 
Association which warned it 
would deter still more patients 
from seeking treatment. 

But the British Denial Asso- 
ciation welcomed the decision 
not to increase dental charges 
following last year’s 25 per 
cent rise. 

It said: “We have been 
warning ministers that foe 
increases would put people off 
visiting foe dentist and per- 
haps foe message has finally 
got through.” 

The BMA earlier this 
month called for an urgent 
review of prescription charges. 
It gave a warning that doctors 
up and down the country were 
aware that some people were 
not seeking treatment because 
their income was just too high 
to qualify for free prescrip- 
tions and they could not 
afford foe charge of £2 an 
item. 

“This further increase at 
above the rate of inflation will 
simply make foe situation

£600,000 

damages 

A girl, aged six, who was 
bom with irreversible handi- 
caps and can neither talk nor 
walk, was awarded £600,000 
damages in foe High Court 
yesterday. 

Mr Justice Turner was told 
that Caroline TurviUe had to

cuddled to sleep each night by 
her parents since she was boro

denied. 

Mr George Carman. QC, 
counsel for foe Turvilles. said 
the family bad “discounted" 
20 per cent of what they 
believed was a conservative 
valuation of foe claim. 

Mr Turville said after foe 
hearing: “The settlement is to 
care for Caroline. She will 
need constant therapy in order 
to develop to her greatest 
potential” Page 3

said. 

Mr Hayhoe said the 10 per 
cent increase was in line wilh 
foe rising costs of medicines, 
foe increase in which was 
running above general infla- 
tion. 

Seventy-five per cent of 
prescriptions were issued 
without charge, he said, with 
pensioners, expectant and 
nursing mothers, those on 
supplementary benefit and 
others on low income all 
exempt. 

The rise would mean that 
foe proportion of NHS spend- 
ing met through charges 
would fall slightly this year.

He said that a review of the 
exemptions, including exemp- 
tions for specified conditions 
such as eplilepsy, had been 
completed and that foe exist- 
ing range of exemptions would 
continue. 

Charges for prescription 
season tickets are to rise in 
line with the 10 per cent 
increase to £12 for the four- 
monthly ticket and £33.50 for

Acquittal 
in second 
death trial 

By Stewart Tendler 
Crime Reporter 

A Londoner aged 22 was 
acquitted yesterday of foe 
murder of Leonie’ Damiey, 
aged 7. after facing his second 
trial at foe Central Criminal 
Court for her murder in July 
1984. 

At the end of the first trial 
last December foe jury failed 
to agree over the guilt of 
Patrick Reilly, aged 24. and a 
retrial was ordered. 

Yesterday at foe end of 
deliberations lasting more 
than six hours foe jury re- 
turned a verdict of not guilty, 
and were then told that Reilly 
had pleaded guilty to six other 
sex assault charges. 

Members of foe jury were 
shocked at foe news and two 
women jurors wept as they left 
court. The judge said that he 
had not wanted to burden the 
jury immediately with the 
knowledge that Reilly, who 
did not give evidence, had 
admitted other offences. 

The prosecution alleged 
that Mr Reilly, a labourer 
living in a north London 
hostel was linked to foe 
killing by four human hairs 
and three doth fibres.

Labour’s 

training 

strategy 


■ By Our Political Staff 
. Education and training 
.could become the responsibil- 
ity: of a single government 
.^department under a Labour 
administration with employ- 
ers required to spend more on 
courses for staff. 

A Labour Party discussion 
document published yester- 
day says the present fragment- 
ed system has failed to meet 
needs and demands it ought to 
satisfy. 

The Government is accused 
of encouraging “elitism" and 
competition for limited places 
rather than equitable and 
open provision. 

The central theme of the 
document. Education and 
Training: Options of Labour, 
is the need for Britain to 
become "a learning society", 
involving all the people. 

"This will mean changing 
attitudes and overcoming the 
entrenched resistance which 
has dragged down the British 
"training level to one of the 
fewest in the .developing 
.^world". it says. 

' While the education system 
"tis organized around intellectu- 
al achievement under the 
Department rf Education and 
Science umbrella, training is 
largely job-related and deliv- 
ers by a “plethora" of 
schemes, the document says. 

The document contrasts ihe 
40 per cent of British students 
aged 17 in full-time education 
with ihe 80 io 90 per ceni 
figure of West Germany and 
Japan. 

• A primary school 
headteacher yesterday told a 
Commons select committee 
how a shortage of fends 
prevented her from buying the 
compasses and maps neces- 
sary to give her pupils a basic 
grounding in geography. 

Each compass would have 
cost £8 and each large-scale 
local map £3. Mrs Wendy 
Morgan, of Elraset. Suffolk, 
told theeducation committee. 
The outlay was out of the 
question. . 



Girls’ bravery praised 


Nicola Smith (left) who

sented with a Britannia Ar- 
row-Ross McWhirto Young 
Citizen Award for six to 11-

London. 


Nicola, aged 11, of Horn- 
church, Essex, was only nine

ber of the getaway car and 


gave police a good description 
of the robbers. 

With her is Jennifer

after the accident She was

group. 


lice, with Mr Rank Dobson, 
Labour’s health spokesman, 
saying that while the proposal 
to divorce private practice 
from the health service was 
not official Labour Party poli- 
cy it still “needs to be seriously 
considered." 

The report follows audits in 
1984 which showed that the 
NHS was losing millions of 
pounds in private patient 
Income, from the failure of 
consultants to tell administra- 
tors about private patients, 
and of authorities to collect 
the money properly. j 

It says:“The only way to 1 
ensure that the health service 
is not abused and neglected 
through private practice is the 
complete separation of NHS 
and commercial medicine. 

The report came out as Mr 
Barney Hayboe, Minister for 
Health, issued new detailed 
guidance to health authorities 
on private practice. 

Deposits covering the full 
cost of treatment should be 
collected, the guidance says, 
unless there are good grounds 
for believing that no difficulty 
will arise over paymenL 

Bills should be presented 
weekly and final settlement 
sought before private patients 
are discharged Private pa- ' 
i tients should pay the full cost | 
I of non-emergency transport in I 
I a health service ambulance, 
and consultants must keep 
| common waiting lists to avoid 
queue jumping. 

Mr Hayboe said that private i 
practice raised £56 million last 
year in England. 


the Prime Minister was plan- 
ning to fight the next election 
on a full-blooded, radical 
manifesto. 

But her supporters and op- 
ponents both agreed that there 
was no question about her 
ultimate power to outface 
Cabinet and backbench crit- 
ics. 

But some of her opponents 
said that if the Conservatives 
put up a poor showing in the 
three impending by-elections, 
the May local elections and in 
summer opinion polls the 
pressure for retrenchment 
could be overwhelming. 

An attempt might be made 
to undermine Mrs Thatcher's 
authority by launching a lead- 
ership challenge in the an- 


party. 

The manifesto, which began 
as the Prime Minister's elec- 
tion address, will carry the 
firm imprint of Mrs 
Thatcher's conviction politics. 

Although there was no set 
form for establishing a mani- 
festo, one central source said 
that there were precedents for 
the Cabinet considering a 
draft document It was said 
yesterday that the February 
1974 manifesto, drafted by Mr 
Nigel Lawson, bad been con- 
sidered by the Cabinet albeit 
at a late stage. 

The draft manifestoes for 
the October 1974 and 1979 
elections had also been con- 
sidered by the Conservative 
Shadow cabinets.

Agriculture Correspondent 

The Agricultural Wages 
Board met yesterday to deter- 
mine its response to a claim by 
the Transport and General 
Workers' Union for a 56 per 
cent pay increase for Britain's 
3 1 6.000 form workers. 

The union has repeated its 
perennial demand for “parity" 
with average earnings in other 
industries which, it says, 
would entail a minimum wage 
for fuQ time workers of £140 a 
week. 

Its daim also includes a 
reduction in the working week 
from 40 to 35 hours, an 
increase in annual holiday 
entitlement from four to five 
weeks, and belter terms for 
part-time and seasonal work- 
ers. 

Mr Christopher French, 
vice-president of the National 
Fanners' Union, who is lead- 
ing the employers' ride in the 
negotiations, has dismissed 
the claim as wholly unrealistic 
in the light of an officially 
estimated 43 per cent fen in 
farmers’ incomes last year. 

According .to a recent sur- 
vey by the Low Pay Unit, the 
gap between agricultural and 
other industrial earnings is 
now £41 a bead, and more 
than one in five full time farm 
workers are eligible for family 
income supplement.

Mr Murdoch met leaders of 
the National Union Of Jour- 
nalists at the plant and the 
four editors yesterday. 

The four fathers (chairmen) 
of the chapel said they were 
satisfied with “the construc- 
tive tone of the meeting" « feft 
remained concerned about the 
protracted nature of the dis- 
pate and about those who had 

been dismissed. 

They expressed concern 
about the hostile environment 
and restricted access to normal 

contacts, and told Mr Mur- 
doch he could not rely on 

journalists accepting sm± con- 
ditions indefinitely. They 
arged a swift and compassion- 
ate end to the dispate. 

After the meeting, Mr Mur- 
doch said: *T welcome the 
support journalists expressed 
today for the use of the new 
technology at Wapping, and 
admire the speed and skill 
with which they've taken to ft. 

“I sympathize with the con- 
cern they expressed about tire 
difficulties of producing good 
journalism muter ‘siege'coodi- 
tions. We all hope these 
conditions will end as' soon as 
possible. In the meantime 
management wiB do what it 
can to protect the safety of oar 

journalists and the editorial 
integrity of the papers. 

“f pointed out to the FOCs 
that there is an important, 
positive side to our move to 
Wapping. We have secured 
the fetere of four tides. Includ- 
ing the . . hundreds of 
journalists' jobs which depend 
on them. This is particniarfy 
true of The Times, which for 
the first time in many decades 
is now on a firm Unsocial 
footing. 

. “Moreover, editorial integ- 
rity was under greater threat 
before we came to Wapping, 
when journalists were never 
sure our papers would be 
printed or their editorial free- 
dom respected by the print 

pnfmig , 

“I appreciate the FOCs' 
concern for those who went on 
strike and were sacked. I hope 
they will express die same 
concern to those who called 
than out on strike. And I 
welcome the FOCs' remark 
that there Is no desire among 
the journalists to have 'peace 
at any price’ and no pressme 
on the company from the 
journalists to agree any settle- 
ment which would allow the 
oM print unions in Wapping." 

A forthcoming meeting be- 
tween Mr Matthews and the 
five newspaper unions will be 
purely exploratory. 

Mr Matthews said: “We 
bare to take it very steadily to 
build bridges of 
understanding.*' 

But be warned “It is impor- 
tant to find out whether they 
want redundancy, baring ac- 
knowledged the fight for 
Wapping is over. That would 
take ns to a new stage in 
negotiations. 

No sum of money has been 
earmarked to deal with hard- 
ship, he said.

Insurance 
firm starts 
anti-drink 
campaign 

By Edward Townsend 
Industrial Correspondent 

Legal & General, one of 
Britain's largest insurance 
companies, yesterday 
launched a drive to combat the 
country's drinking problem 
which, it says, is one of the 
biggest causes of absenteeism 
at work. 

Latest statistics show that 
between two million andthree 
million people are drinking to 
excess, according to L&G, and 
hangovers cost industry 
£1,000 million a year in lost 
working days. 

As part of a “policy of social 
responsibility”, L&G has pro- 
duced a 12-minute video which 
aims to persuade drinkers to 
cut down on their alcohol 
consumption without horrify- 
ing people with “the evils of 
drink”. 

Although drinking is said to 
be associated with 80 per cent 
of deaths by fire, 40 per cent of 
all road accidents involving 
pedestrians and half of all 
murders, the company denied 
that Us chief purpose was to 
reduce insurance claims. 

The drinking video is aimed 
not at alcoholics, bat at those 
who enjoy a glass of beer, a 
shared bottle of wine or a gin 
and tonic when they get home 
from work”. 

L&G says that learning the 
art of sensible drinking is a 
skill as important as reading, 
writing and driving. 

Those most exposed to the 
drink problem, according to 
L&G, are publicans, waiters, 
salesmen, journalists, actors, 
soldiers and the expense ac- 
count executive.

Freedom 
to smoke 
defended 

By Out Science 
Correspooent 

Action against cigarette 
smoking can damage rivil 
liberties, and most people 
believe smokers should be left 
to make np their own minds 
about whether to cootmoe the 
habit, Forest, the pressure 
group, said yerterday. 

The group. Freedom Orga- 
nization for the Right toEnjoy 
Smoking Tobacco, published 
an opinion poll in the ren-qp to 
tomorrow's national No 
-Oinkin g Day, sponsored by 
health education and cancer 
research bodies. 

The poll, condncted by the 
Harris Research Centre, 
showed that 85 pm cent of 
non-smokers and 94 per cent 
of smokers agreed that people 
should be free to decide wheth- 
er to smoke. Only 12 per cent 
of smokers said they were not 
prepared to be considerate of 


However, surveys carried 
out by the Consumers’ Associ- 
ation showed that about half 
have wanted to ask others not 
to smoke. 

“Overall, the cancer risk to 
adults from second-hand

small”, (he association said.

‘Jobs rise 
in Sunday 
shopping’ 

More than 100,000 part- 
time jobs could be created if 
Sunday trading restrictions 
were abolished, according to a 
report published yesterday. 

“The likely impacts of free 
Sunday trading are that retail 
sales wiD rise, and there will 
be a small net increase in jobs, 
mainly part-time and for 
women” Mr Terry Bnrke of 
the Polytechnic of Central 

London, said. „ 

“Free Sunday trading will 
provide a wider Choice of 
employment opportunities for 
part-time workers. Following 
on from the predicted in- 
creased sales and changes in 
shopping patterns, there wOl 
be changes in patterns of 
employment 

“New jobs will be created on 
Sundays bat others will be 
saved due to the smoothing of 
the peak sales periods. There 
wifi, however, be a small net 
increase in jobs, np to 2 per 
cent of the current retail 
labour force.” 

The report dismissed claims 
that free Sunday trading 
would disrupt famil y fife 
verely and said that perhaps 
120,000 married women with 
young children would work 
“bat by choice rather than as a

Gas explosion source found 


By Peter Davenport 

A £500,000 geological and 
seismic investigation has 
found the source of the meth- 
ane gas that caused the 
Abbey stead water station ex- 
plosion which killed 16 peo- 
ple. 

The blast occurred during a 
tour of the valve house by 
villagers concerned that it was 
contributing to flooding in 
their area. 

Almost two years later its 
operators, the North-West 
Water Authority, yesterday 
disclosed the results of the 
independent survey. 

The report, by Exploration 


leyn 

Thames, said that rocks three- 


quarters of a mile below the 
site of the valve house in north 
Lancashire have been generat- 
ing and releasing methane 
over millions of years. 

It had been held in a 
geological “trap", a natural 
limestone reservoir, from 
which it travelled towards the 
surface through a complex 
network of faults. The cutting 
of the tunnel had intersected 
the faults allowing the gas to 
seep in through shrinkage 
cracks in its concrete lining. 

The tunnel is used to trans- 
fer water from the river Lune 
to the river Wyre as part of the 
Lancashire Conjunctive Use 
Scheme opened by the Queen 
in May 1980. 


The cause of the ignition of 
the explosion in the valve 
house on May 23, 1984, which 
also injured 28 people, may 
never be known. 

An inquest jury returned 
verdicts of accidental death 
and recommended more de- 
tailed tests to establish the 

E resence of gas in similar 
uildings. 

Since the explosion water 
has been kept constantly in the 
tunnel to disperse the continu- 
ing seepage of methane into 
the atmosphere through a 
series of vents. 

The valve house has been 
left open to the air, its roof was 
blown off in the explosion, 
also to avoid a build-up. 


Polygraph 

‘smears 

truthful 

people’ 

By Thomson Prentice 

Science Correspondent 

Lie detector machines may 
incriminate more truthful 
people than liars and are 
unlikely to help to prove a 
suspect's innocence, according 
to new research. 

The use of the polygraph is 
based on a “very weak scien- 
tific foundation” and public 
policy makers should ponder 
its flaws before deciding on 
extending it in society, Ameri- 
can researchers say in ' the 
latest issue of The Lancet . 

During the interrogation of 
a suspected liar, the device 
records heart rate, blood pres- 
sure, respiration rate and skin 
responses. Trained examiners 
are said to be able to detect a 
characteristic pattern of re- 
sponses in that record when 
the subject is telling a lie. . 

But the researchers, who 
assessed previously published 
evidence for the sensitivity 
and specificity of the poly- 
graph. have concluded that 
most of the positive results 
would be false positives. 

“Consequently, truthful 
persons incriminated as liars 
by the polygraph would out- 
number actual liars with a 
positive result on the test,” 
they report. 

The assessment was carried 
out by medical scientists in 
Boston, Chicago and Wash- 
ington to determine the pre- 
dictive value of the lie 
detector. They echo previous 
criticisms that the device is 
used “on the unproven as- 
sumption that the act of telling 
lie is accompanied by a 
specific and reproducible, set 
of physiological responses”. 

There is no rational scientif- 
ic basis for any machine to 
detect liars consistently, as 
there is no known consistent 
physiological response unique 
to the cognitive state of lying, 
the researchers say. 

‘The implications of our 
calculations are disturbing. 
Polygraph testing in several 
settings will generate large 
numbers of false positiveje- 
sults. Ulus incriminating many 
truthful persons. 

“In some circumstances, 
truthful persons diagnosed as 
liars will outnumber actual 
liars by a wide margin. Fur- 
thermore, the idea of hoping 
to prove one's innocence by 
taking a polygraph test is 
misguided, since the false 
positive rate among truthful 
persons may be 37 per cent or 
higher.” the researchers say.

SIZEWELL 


The main conclusions from the 
inspector conducting the in- 
quiry over the new Size well 
. -PWR nuclear reactor - which 
_,had been hoped for this spring — 
will be somewhat delayed, Mr 
Alistiir Goodlad, Under Sec- 
" reiary of State at the Depart- 
-inent of Energy, said during 
questions in the Commons. 

, Mr Goodlad said the Secretary 
...of Slate for Energy (Mr Peter 
' Walker) was now asking the 

■ inspector (Sir Frank Layfield) 
"Tor more precise guidance. 

Mr Goodlad was replying to Mr 
Patrick McNair-Wilsoq (New 
• -Forest. C) who referred to public 
concern over nuclear develop- 
_ .menis. He asked the Minister to 
: deny that the Energy Depart- 
"ment had pressured Sir Frank io 
- hurry his report on the pressur- 
'ized water reactor — and when 
the report was due. 

Mr Goodlad said he could 
'certainly give that denial. Mr 
Walker had repeatedly made 
’ clear to Sir Frank the necessity 
-of having the report quickly. Mr 
-Walker had made available 
.considerable resources and re- 
mained ready to see that any 
'further resources would be on 
hand so that an early conclusion 
/Could be reached on the inquiry 
''which was of great importance 
/to the nation. 

Earlier Mr Goodlad had told 
Mr Kenneth Carlisle (Lincoln, 

. C) that between 1970 and 1 984, 
-there had been 7 46 deaths in 
-coal mining operations. In the 
..offshore oil and gas industry in 
the United Kingdom, the total 
: pumber of deaths had been 1 16 

■ during that period. In the civil 
nuclear industry the comparable 

'figure was 10. 


Mr Carlisle said that in the 
arguments over the nuclear 
industry, it was important to 
look at'fecl rather than theory. 
The figures showed the nuclear 
industry bad the best safety 
record.' Would Mr Goodlad 
confirm that none of the nuclear 
industry deaths bad been caused 
by radiation? 

Nuclear energy production 
also had two other advantages: 
ii did not create acid rain — as 
coal and oil did — and it 
produced cheaper electricity, 
which was good for industry and 
was greatly welcomed by people 
who heated their homes by 
electricity. (Conservative 
cheers). 

Mr Goodlad said he entirely 
agreed with the points about 
acid rain and cheaper electricity. 
He also confirmed that none of 
the nuclear industry deaths had 
been due to radiological haz- 
ards. 

Mr Darid Heatbcoat-Amury 
(Wells, O said nuclear energy 
production was safe, clean and 
cheap, whereas coal was dirty, 
dangerous and expensive. The 
report that the Size well report 
was to be delayed was greatly 
disappointing. 

Could Mr Goodlad give any 
indication of a date when Brit- 
ain might get a new nuclear 
reactor, which was required on 
economic and social grounds? 
Mr Goodlad said he could not 
give a date. The National Coal 
Board constantly aimed to im- 
prove safety standards, above 
and below ground. 

Mr Dale CampbeH-Savonrs 
(Workington. Lab): Are not the 
efforts we are all making to 
destroy the myths which sur- 
round the nuclear industry 
grossly undermined by BNFL 
management when they take the 
deliberate decision to release 


uranium into the Irish Sea? 

If they continue down this 
road of ignoring public concern 
it is only they who threaten the 
future of this industry and the 
22.500 jobs at stake in west 
Cumbria. Will he tell the 
management they should raise 
standards and take into account 
the high level of public concent? 
We want to protect this in- 
dustry. 

Mr Goodlad: I entirely agree 
about tbc necessity for the 
nuclear industry to present the 
facts, which they do in a 
simplified form. 

I cannot agree about the 
release into the Irish Sea. It was 
weD within the limits authorized 
by the Department of the 
Environment. The discharges 
were kept as reasonably de- 
finable as possible. They pre- 
sented no hazard to the 
workforce or public on either 
side of the Irish Sea. 

Sir Trevor Skeet (North 
Bedfordshire. C) said tbe 
postponement of the announce- 
ment on Sizewell was disgrace- 
ful. The inquiry had lasted over 
two years. 

Mr Goodlad: The timing of the 
report is a matter tor the 
inspector, but 1 note wbat has 
been said. The Secretary of State 
is currently seeking more precise 
guidance from Sir Frank 
Layfield. 

Mr Allen McKay (Barnsley. 
West and Pen i stone. Lab): Peo- 
ple are concerned about what 
could happen if an incident 
occurred within the nuclear 
industry, it has not been forth- 
right in its dealing with the 
situation and also with the 
situation regarding the disposal 
of nuclear waste. This is a 
matter of concern. 

Mr Goodlad: 1 cannot accept 
that. 


High level of 
N Sea oil

RESEARCH 


Mr Charles Kennedy (Ross, 
Cromarty and Skye. SDP) asked 
during Commons questions if it 
was possible to gauge what 
impact falling oil prices might 
have had on the ninth offshore

search and the big contracts that 
“went with il 

i 

-Mr Afick Bnchartan-S mi th. 
Minister of State at the Depart- 
ment of Energy, said there was 
every indication that work was 
continuing. The main work was 
in relation to exploration. In the 
first six weeks of this year, there 
had been more exploration wells 
drilled offshore than in the 
previous two years - and it had 
to be remembered that 1 984 was 
a record year. 

Mr Stanley Orme. chief Oppo- 
sition spokesman on emergy. 
'.said Mr Bucahanan-Smith had 
-not answered the main point: 
What effect had falling prices 
•had on oil recovery technology? 

Mr Bucbanan-Smitta said it had 
none. In the long-term. falling 
prices would encourage more 
work in recovery technology, 
-because the more that could be 
;done to lower costs and improve 
'efficiency it would help in the 
-face of lower oil prices.

He stated: The 18.33 pas- 
senger train from Sheffield to 
Manchester, consisting of a 
diesel locomotive and four 
coaches, was brought to a stand 
at a red signal at Cliinley East 
Junction. Its driver was au- 
thorized to pass the signal at 
"danger' and did so. 

The train then crossed over 
onto the other line where it 
collided head-on with two sta- 
tionary diesel locomotives. I 
regret to have to tell the House 
that the driver of the passenger 
train was killed in the collision. 
In addition the driver of the 
dieseftocomotives was injured. 


together with some 25 pas- 
sengers. 

Of the injured, four are still in 
hospital and I understand that 
one of the passengers is in a 
critical condition. 

Mr Peter Snape. an Opposition 
spokesman on transport, who 
had called fora statement, asked 
if the passenger train passed the 
signal at 'danger' because of a 
signal failure? Was Mr Ridley 
satisfied with tbe adequacy of 
the signal maintenance in this 
area, and with the availability of 
proper staff responsible for 
signalling maintenance, particu- 
larly at weekends? 

Mr Ridley: It would be better to 
await the results of the formal 
inquiry into what happened and 
whether the maintenance was 
done and whether it was done 
properly and the matters he 
raises. 

The line had recently been 
equipped with modem colour 
signalling, so it was a question of 
what happened. 

Mr Robert Adi ey. ( Christ :- 
church. C) said a statement had 
been called for about a crash in 
whicb one person had died and 
yet 14 people a day were killed 
on the roads, which aroused no 
interest or comment. 

Mr Ridley: Tbe safety record of 
British Rail has been improving 
steadily over tbe years. At the 
end of last year I wrote to the 
chairman (Mr Bob Reid) and 
congratulated him on the best 
safety year. 1 think, for all time. 


Political fund against tradition 


Referring to the decision by the 
.Inland Revenue Staff Federa- 
tion to set up a political fund. 
'Sir John Biggs- Davison (Epping 
Forest, O raid during Com- 
-mons question lime that it 
would be contrary to the tra- 
ditions and interests of the 
-public service if a civil service 
union were to set up such a fund 


UppOf 

Mr Richard Luce. Minister of 
State. Privy Council Office, 
agreed with that comment and 
said it was the Government's 
view that political funds were 
only needed if a union proposed 
to participate in party political 
activities or to campaign for or 
against political parlies or can- 


didates. Unions should consider 
thjt point very carefully. 

Mr Looe said he believed the 
vast majority of civil servants 
wished to maintain a neutral 
civil service and. at the end of 
the day. the decision on poiicital 
funds must be for the unions 
themselves. 


Prescription charges up 20p 


HEALTH SERVICE 


Prescription charges mil go up 
from £2 to £2.20 from April I. 
with the four-monthly and an- 
nual season ticket fees increas- 
ing to £t2.and £33.50 
respectively. ' Mr Barney 
Hayboe, Minister for Health, 
announced in the Commons. 

There would be no change in 
dental and optical charges and 
the existing range of exemp- 
tions. which covered 75 per cent 
of all prescriptions, would con- 
tinue. 

Mr Hayboe also said the Gov- 
ernment had provided for an 
increase of £250 million in 
England for family practitioner 
services in 1986-87. All but a 
small pan of this would be met 
from taxation and national 
insurance. The remainder 
would come from increased 
revenue from charges to pa- 
tients. The proportion of the 
cost of the NHS met through 
charges was expected to fell 
slightly next year to 3.02 per 
cent. 

Mr Frank Dobson, an Oppo- 
sition spokesman on health and 
social security, said: The in- 
crease in prescription charges is 
more than twice the rate of 
inflation. There has been an 
increase of 1.000 per cent since 
1979. 

No other commodity or ser- 
vice has seen such an increase. 
Why has the Government sin- 
gled out health as the lowest 
possible priority? 

The British Medical 
Association's view is that the 
present level of prescription 
charges deterred poorer people. 
We welcome the decision not to 
increase dental charges again, 
but the charges introduced last 
year are doing severe damage to 
the dental care of poorer people. 

There have been distin- 
guished people in Mr Hayhoe's 
office who had made a reputa- 
tion for themselves for caring 


more about tbe health of the 
nation than for being popular 
with tire Treasury. 

Mr Hayboe: Mr Dobson's 
description is a travesty of the 
reality. The 10 per cent increase 
is exactly in line with the rising 
costs of medicines. Seventy-five 
per cent of all prescriptions are . 
wholly exempt from charges 
anyway and 5 per cent are met 
by season tickets. 

The Prime Minister has made 
it clear that no responsible 
Government can ever promise 
not to increase . prescription 
charges, 
wy. 

& 



Dobson: Goremment's 
lowest priority 

Mr Robert McCrindle (Brent-' 
wood and Ongar. C y. Year after 
year the same list of people are 
exempted. While for the most 
pan that is correct, has the time 
not come when some review 
should be undertaken to see 
whether there are not those, for 
example the better-off retired, 
who are capable of paying these 
charges, which might lead to less 
of an increase for the rest of us? 
Mr Hayboe: I have no plans to 
change the existing range of 
exemptions, which will con- 
tinue. nor to change the present 
exemptions from tbe prescrip- 
tion charge for those suffering 
from certain specified con- 
ditions, but 1 note what be says. 
Mr Darid Sim berg (Bury. 


South, Cy. Nearly three-quarters 
of aH prescriptions are issued 
free and that situation wifi 
continue. As a result of exemp- 
tions the poorest continue to 
pay no charge for the drugs they 
use: . 

Mr Hayboe: That is right The 
poorest within our community 
are fully protected by these 

arrangements. 

Mr. WQlum HamHtow .(Central 
Fife, Lab): At £230 per item the 
great majority of people, who 
are not exempt, will pay £6.60 
for three items on the prescrip- 
tion form. That will be a 
considerable hardship for peo- 
ple on low incomes who are 
above supplementary benefit 
teveL 

People m those circumstances 
will be tempted to go to the 
chemist and prescribe iheir own 
medicines or get them pre- 
scribed for them by tire chemist. 
Mr Hayboe: He is wrong in 
saying that the majority of 
. people who go with more than 
one item -on their prescription 
will pay as he indicated. Tbe 
majority - 75 per cent - are 
exempt. 

What he said about items, as 
opposed to the total prescrip- 
tion, is correct. 

Mr Robin MaxweB-Hysfop 
(Tiverton, Ok He referred to 
people on what he terms low 
incomes who are entitled to 
reimbursement. How do people 
in this category who are not in 
receipt of a specific benefit 
recognize lb cm selves as befog 
entitled to reimbursement? 

Mr Hayboe: There is an NHS 
leaflet which is freely available 
and I ant surprised that be has 
not seen it. 

Mr Richard Hfckmet (Glanford 
and Scunthorpe, CJ: The Oppo- 
sition reaction or outrage is 
synthetic, bogus and motivated, 
as usual by political objectives. 

The Government is commit- 
ted to providing free drugs for 
pensioners, children and nurs- 
ing mothers and its policy is 
entirely to be applauded. 


Mr David Wfandck (Walsall 
North. Lab): This further ibk 
crease rs a tax on the sick and the 
minister should be thoroughly 
ashamed of himself. 

Mr Hayboe 1 do not accept 
that The reality is that the 
percentage of the total cost of 
the NHS being met by charges is 
with in a tenth of a percentage 
point the same as it -was during 
the last full year of the Labour 
Government. . . 

Mr John Bynum (Blyth Valley, 
Lab): He says there is no 
evidence that -increased 
prescription charges d eter p a- 
tients from asking for prescrip- 
tions. There is an abundance of 
evidence from the north-east of 
England. Will he look at the 
enormous profits ■ made by 
pharmaceutical firms- ip supply- 
ing drugs to the NHS? 

Mr Hayboe; T am prepared to 
consider any evidence on the 
first point On the seco nd*! am 

r to have his implicit support 
die measures taken by my 
predecessor which would much 
reduce the money flowing to the 
pharmaceutical companies.

£3.25 million bad 
weather payments 

A total of £3.25 million has

Fisheries and Food, said in a 
Commanrwritten reply. - 


Jopling initiative on EEC cereals 


FARMING 


The United Kingdom could not 
allow agriculture to become 
tangled in a web of bureaucratic 
controls, because a successful 
farming industry - and a worth- 
while rural industry — depended 
upon the scope for intiaiive and 
enterprise being rewarded. 

This was said by Mr Michael 
Jopling, Minister for Agri- 
culture. Fisheries and Food, 
when he moved a motion in the 
Commons taking note of Euro- 
pean Community documents 
dealing with form prices for 
1986-87 and the milk outgoers 
scheme. ' 

He said discrimination 
against the United Kingdom 
was a common theme in tbe 
Commission's propofols . for 
cereals, beef and sheepmeat. 

This is- tbe result (he said) of 
the Commission's declared pol- 
icy of tackling the income 
roblems of small or family 
irms. often by measures that 
penalize the larger former. 

This would particularly dis- 
advantage our own industry 
which has a generally forger- 
scale structure, our forms being 
about five times the size of the 
Community average. 


The Government cannot ac- 
cept (he continued) that it is 
right to develop the CAP in a 
direction designed to stifle ef- 
ficiency and which involves the 
introduction of a concept which 
is quite contrary to the philos- 
ophy of a common market 

Opening the . debate. Mr 
Jopling said the main features of 
the EEC Commission's form 
price proposals .issued last 
month were a price freeze for the 
major commodities and 
substantial measures affecting 
intervention and other aspects 
of support 

Although the overall effect of 
the proposals was rough, they 
did not represent a fully appro- 
: priate response against the luck- 
ground of massive surpluses and 
growing budgetary cost. 

The sector which demanded 
major attention- urgently was 
cereals. The Commission’s pro- 
posal was a complex .package of 
measures. 

The proposal on the co- 
responsibility levy was Illogical 
and discriminated fiercely 
against the UK. All grain 
contributed to the surplus, so it 
was illogical to charge a levy 
only on sales. Discrimination 
arose because the proportion -of 
gram sold off UK forms was 
. much, higher than the Commu- 


nity average and because UK 
farms were on average much 


larger. 

Take 


Taken together, these factors 
meant that something like three- 
quarters of the UK's cereal 
production would bear the levy 
compared with about half for 
. the Community as a whole. 

We could not accept a co- 
responsibility levy with these 
features (he said). Instead of a 3 
per cent co-responsibilyt levy, I 
shall be arguing that a cut of 3 
per cent would make better 
sense. It would avoid the admin- 
istrative and discriminatory 
objections to the Commissions's 
proposals and it would reduce 
prices to consumers, including 
the livestock sector. 

He was open to examining 
new measures .in the cereals 
sector, but these must be de- 
signed to assist tbe implementar 
tion of the "restrictive price 
policy the UK was seeking. 

I have taken the initiative- (he 
said) in -calling for an examina- 
tion of a Community set-aside 
system for cereals. Together 
with price nits and sensible 
quality and intervention mea- 
sures. that could provide a 
worthwhile pacakage enabling 
the Community to make real 
progress in tackling the cereals 
sector. • 


The Commission have pro- 
posed to freeze the target price 
for milk (be said). I do not 
consider this goes for enough. 
We need a substantial price 
cm and I shall argue .for three 
percenL 

I regret (he went on)' the 
Commission iiave not pro- 
posed any redaction in the 
coresponsibility levy on milk. 
I would idee the Council to 
commit itself to abolition of 
the levy - (Conservative 
cheers) - although for budget- 
ary reasons ( recognize this 
would have to be; over several 
•years./ '.••:■;/ ■ • ■ 

Mr Brynmor John, chief Oppo- 
sition spokesman ■ on agri- 
culture, said he- suspected that 
allhough there were differences 
between parties, theends sought 
by the United Kingdom were 
broadly agreed. ■ ■. 

The mistake should , not be 
made of believing that frequent 
use of strong words would 
remove weaknesses. It was dear 
there was a desperate necessity 
for a thorough overhaul of the 
system before it collapsed under 
its own insatiable demand for 
more and more money.

Mr Peter Bruinveb (Leicester

that the House was costing more

an average of nine hours and six

Queen’s Bench Division 


Bilateral rights not essential 


Satisfying the landlord condition 


jPittalis and Others v 
Sberefettin 

/Before Lord Justice Fox. Lord 
justice Dillon and Lord Justice 
Neill 

'^Judgment given February 271 
" .It was not an essential ingrcdi- 
fint.of an arbitration agreement, 
within the meaning of the 
-Arbitration Act 1950. that it 
^should confer bilateral rights, 
and not merely a universal right. 
3>f reference of a dispute to the 
•arbitrator. 

The Court of Appeal so held 
ui-a reserved judgment allowing 
-an. appeal by the pteimiffland- 
' lords, Mr Errato Pittalis and 
three other persons, from the 
decision of Judge Martin. QC. at 
.Westminster County Court in 
granting the defendant tenant, 
jyir Ali Sherefettin. an extension 
•of the time specified by a rent 
review clause for referring a 
dispute to arbitration. 

Mr Jeffrey Unman for the 
plaintiffs; Mr Jack Sarch for the 
-defendant 

; LORD JUSTICE FOX said 
that the appeal concerned the 
operation of a rent review clause 
in a lease dated August 30, 1 968. 
of a Shop and premises known 
as 355 Caledonian Road, Isling- 
ton. for 21 years from June 24, 
1968. 

The rent payable under the 
lease was £800 a year for the first 
Iseven years, and £8S0 for the 
•next seven years. For the 
remainder of the term of the 
jease (the review period) the rent 
•was to be whichever was the 
higher of £850 and tbc open 
market rental value of the- 
property for the review period. 

- The lease further provided 
jhai “|i) [the open market rental 
value] snail be such a sum as 
shall be notified ... by the 
lessors to the lessee ... or (ii) at 
the election of the lessee by 
notice ... to the lessors ... not 
later then three months after the 
lessors' notification . . . men- 


tioned . . . above ... it shall be 
determined (in accordance . . . 
with the provisions of the 
Arbitration Act 1950 . . .) by an 
independent surveyor . . .". 

In 1981 Uie plaintiffs gave 
notice to the defendant that the 
open market rental value as 
from June 24. 1982 should be 
£6.000 a year. It was common 
ground that that was a valid 
notice for the purposes of pro- 
viso (i) of the lease. 

No election was made under 
proviso (ii). Therefore, unless 
the defendant could obtain an 
extension of time for electing, 
the position under the pro- 
visions of the lease was that as 
from June 24. 1982 the rent for 
the premises was £6.000. 

The defendant therefore in- 
voked the provisions of section 
27 of the Arbitration Act 1950. 

In Tore Bookmakers Ltd v 
Property Holding Co Lfo([19851 
‘2 WLR 603), the provisions of 
the lease were similar to those of 
the present case. Mr Justice 
Peter Gibson held that it was an 
essential attribute of an arbitra- 
tion clause that it gave either 
party the right to refer the 
dispute to arbitration and that 
since the lessee had a unilateral 
right to refer, there was no 
“agreement to refer future dis- 
putes to arbitration". 

That decision was based on 
Baron v Sunderland Corpora- 
tion ([1966] 2 QB 56. 64). 

Apart from authority there 
was no reason why, if an 
agreement between two persons 
conferred on one of them alone 
the right to refer the matter to 
arbitration, the reference should 
not constitute an arbitration. 

In a case like the present the 
landlord was protected, if there 
was no arbitration, by his own 
assessment of the rent as stated 
in bis notice,* and the tenant was 
protected, if he was dissatisfied 
with Lhat assessment, by his 
right to refer the matter to 


arbitration. Both sides had ac- 
cepted the arrangement and 
there was no question of lack of 
mutuality. 

The observations of Lord 
Justice Davies in the Baron case 
were inconsistent with Woolf v 
Coif is Removal Service ([ 1 948] I 
KB 11). His Londsh ip preferred 
the approach in Woolfs case. It 
followed that Tote Bookmakers 
was wrongly decided. 

The jurisdiction under section 
27 was conferred on the High 
Court and the present case was 
heard in the county court but it 
was common ground that, the 
case having been transferred 
from the High Court, the judge 
had High Court jurisdiction for 
the purposes of the section. 

On February 25. 1985. the 
judge dismissed the defendant’s 
application, under section 27, 
for an extension of time. He 
then gave judgment for tbe 
plaintiffs for arrears of rent, 
mesne profits and interest; he 
also made an order for pos- 
session if the judgment sum was 
not paid in three months. 

On February 26, the county 
court wrote to the parties' 
solicitors, stating that the judg- 
ment had not been entered and 
that the judge had bad second 
thoughts about the case and had 
not proposed to allow the 
section 27 application and to 
extend the time for serving a 
notice of election. 

After addresses by counsel on 
March 18, the judge gave a 
further judgment extending 
time for service of the notice of 
election. 

From that decision tbe plain-, 
.tiffs appealed, relying on In re 
BarreU Enterprises ([1973J 1 
WLR 19). There the Court of 
Appeal, stated at pp23-24: 

“When oral judgments have 
been given cither in a court of 
first instance or on appeal the 
successful party oujjht save in 
Die most exceptional circum- 


stances io be able to assume that 
the judgment is a valid and 
effective one." 

As a matter of the sensible 
administration of justice and 
fairness between parties it 
seemed proper in the circum- 
stances of the present case that 
the judge should be at liberty to 
recall his judgment. The po- 
sition could properly be called 
exceptional 

Their Lordships could only 
interfere with the decision if the 
judge misdirected himself 

In his second judgment the 
judge said that the rent the 
plaintiffs were now claiming 
was "manifestly grossly 
inffaied". 

That was a misdirection. £850 
a year was not a valid compari- 
son with £6.000 a year unless it 
was (he market rental in 1982. 
In feet, however, it had been 
fixed in 1968 and that must 
have been by comparison with 
1968 rentals. 

He erred in a material matter 
and that invalidated the exercise 
of the discretion. Their Lord- 
ships were entitled to exercise 
the discretion themselves. 

Tbe central question was 
whether the defendant would 
have suffered undue hardship if 
the extension of lime had been 
refused. On the feels, his Lord- 
ship did not think so. 

Further, one had to take into 
'account the plaintiffs’ position. 
Section 27 was a valuable power 
enabli ng the court to prevent the 
hardship that might result from 
lime provisions. 

But the delay in the present 
case was wholly excessive. The 
defendant was three and a half 
years out of time before he 
sought to rely on section 27.

Justice Neill delivered concur- 
ring judgments.

The “landlord condition" in 
section 28(2) of Lhe Housing Act 
L980 was satisfied if the interest 
of the landlord belonged wholly 
io a relevant landlord, or partly 
to a relevant landlord as joint

hanced the beauty of an open

of section 26(2) of the Town and 
Country Planning Act 1959 as 
amended. 

A local authority, so long as 
not improperly motivated, was 
entitled to take steps to avoid 
the impact of impending legisla- 
tion m the same way as a private 
individual. 

Mr Justice Hodgson so held in 
the Queen's Bench Division in 
allowing an application for ju- 
dicial review by Mr John 
Charles Freeman in respect of 
the grant by Plymouth City 
Council and Cornwall County 
Council to Plymouth City 
Council of a lease dated July 24, 
J984 of the reversion on the 
applicant's tenancy of Maker 
Lodge, Mount Edgecumbe. 
Torpoint Cornwall. 

The Housing Act 1980 pro- 
vides fay section 28:“. . . (2> The 
landlord condition is that- . . . 
(a) the interest of the landlord 
belongs to” a local authority “or 
...(d) the interest of the 
landlord belongs to a county 
council and the tenancy was 
granted to. it by tbe exercise of 
the reserve powers conferred on 
county councils by section 194 
of the Local Government Act 
1972" 

The Town and Country Plan- 
ning Act 1959, as amended by 
paragraph 5 of Part HI of 
Schedule 23 to the Local Gov- 
ernment Pfenning and Land Act 
I9S0, provides by section 26: 
"... (2) Before disposing of any 


land which consists or forms 
part of an open space ... an 
authority . . . (a) shall publish 
notice or their intention to do so 
for at least two consecutive 
weeks in a newspaper circulat- 
ing in their area; and (b) shall 
consider any objections to the 
proposed disposal which may be 
made to them." 

Mr John McDonnell, QC and 
Mr Richard de Lacy for the 
tenant; Mr Anthony Scrivener, 
QC and Mr Graham Stoker for 
the councils. 

MR JUSTICE HODGSON 
said that the tenant had- been . 
granted a tenancy of Maker 
Lodge in 1956 by the sixth Earl 
of Mount Edgecumbe. He re- 
mained as a tenant of tbe 
councils when in 1971 they 
jointly acquired die estate of 
which the lodge formed part. 
Shortly after the Housing Act 
1980 came into force the tenant 
applied for the right to bey the 
property of which he was tenant. 

Tbe councils denied the right 
on tbe ground that the property 
was not a secure tenancy in that 
the. landlord condition ih sec- 
tion 28(2) of the Act was not 
satisfied because Cornwall 
County Council had not granted 
the tenancy in tbe exercise of its 
reserve powers. Nor was the 
property held for the purposes of 
Part V of the Housing Act 1957, 
so that it was excluded from the 
right to buy provisions .by 
section 2(4) and Part 1 of. 
Schedule l to the 1980 A a. The 
tetter objection was removed by 


where a landlord owned - an 
interest sufficient to grant a 
lease exceeding 21 years from 
the date of the tenant’s notice to 
exercise the right to buy. 

The councils devised a 
scheme designed to prevent the 
tenant acquiring Maker Lodge. 
On July 24. 1984 a lease was 
granted to Plymouth City Coun- 
cil for a period of 20 years. The 
Housing and Building Control 
Ail came into force on August 

it was clear that neither the 
. legislature nor the draftsman in 
drafting section 28(2) of the 
Housing Act 1980 ever consid- 
ered tbe question ofjoini owner- 
ship. There might be an 
ambiguity in the wording of the 
section. 

“Belongs to one of the bodies" 
could equally be read “belongs 
solely to one of the bodies" or 
“belongs (wholly or partly) io 
one of xbe bodies" 

A not dissimilar situation 
arose in Lloyd V SodTer ({19781 1 
QB 774). There the Court of 
Appeal, adopted! a purposive 
approach to the legislation. - 
If “belongs to one of the 
bodies" had tbe first definition, 
that could mean that, even if 
both owners qualified, the ten- 
ant would have no right to buy 
Thai could not have been the 
legislature's intention.

would unhesitatingly resolve ft

THE TIMES TUESDAY MARCH 1 1 1986 



ByLncy Hodges* Education Correspondent 


Many children from ethnic 
minorities five in a nightmare 
world when they .first go to 
school in Britain because they 
cannot cope with English, 
aaoidiog to ProfessorBiku 
rarekn,. vice-chairman of the 

Commission for Racial Equal 

Those children .should be 
taught in thei r mother tongue 
for the first two years at 
school he says in .a speech 
challenging; official policy 
which he is to deliver tonight 
in London. 

Half die children of ethnic 
minorities bom in Britain 
probably come from families 
in which little or no En glish is 
spoken* Professor Parekh, 
who is professor of politics at 
Hull University, says. Going 
to school is for. them an 
overwhelming and unnerving 
experience. 

“Within the first years of 
their schooling they five in a 
nightmare world, as countless 
parents and sensitive teachers 
will testify. Over months the 
nightmare grows less frighten- 
ing and they begin to settle 
down, but the effects persist. 

“The capacity for future 
learning Or some of them is 
perhaps permanently dam- 
aged, and in the case of a large 
.number of them, several im- ; 
-portant.gaps remain in. their 
knowledge of English and 
persist an their fives.** 

Professor Parekh makes 
three recommendations: 

• Children should be taught 


in their mother tongues for the 
first two years; 

• Their community lan- 
guages -Greek,. Polish, Ara- 
bic, Chinese* Urdu, Bengali, 
GujaratlTuritishand others - 
should be taught throughout 
primary school; 

• Such languages should * be 
taught together with other 
languages in secondary school 

Professor Parekh -argues 
that resistance to bilingual 


education is grounded in lin- 
guistic parochialism. It also 
comes, be believes, from racist 
assumptions about the sup- 
posed inferiority of the minor- 
ity cultures. 

“It is instinctively assumed 


that the minority languages 
axe not worth teaching and 
should be helped to die an 
early death,** be says, and 
• contends that the existence 61 
for example, 130 languages in 
inner London, should be seen 
instead as. “like North Sea ofl, 
a wonderfiil win dfall" . 

Other countries - Sweden, 
The Netherlands, Canada and 
the United Slates - use a 
Child’s minority lan g iia g c to 
introduce him or her to the 
dominant language. 

A famous case in the Ameri- 
can Supreme Court ruled that 
not ro provide bilingual teach- 
ing at this stage was a gross 
' and inhuman violation of the 
principle of equal opportuni- 
ty, he adds, and says that 
preserving ethnic minority 
languages helps to preserve 
ethnic minority communities.

Terrorism poll 



By Richard Dowdhn 

Most British people think: 
military action against terror- 
ists would not reduce interna- 
tional terrorism, but nearly 
half of those questioned in a 
recent opinion poll wanted the 
Government to do more to 
protect its citizens. 

. The MORI poll conducted 
after, the terrorist incidents in 
Rome and Vienna in Decem- 
ber, showed that 4Zper cent of 
Britons questioned-- believed 
that foe Government was hot • 
doing enough to protect Brit- 
ons . and nearly two-thirds 
thought there should be much 
stricter security at airports. . 

Only 29 per cent supported 
military action against terror- 
ists and only 15 per cent 
supported military action 
against governments which 
give backing to terrorists. 

The poU carried out for the 
New York Times, was also 
conducted in France and Ger- 
many and disclosed even 
stronger feelings there that 
their governments could do

more . about terrorism, but 
there was even less enthusi- 
asm for military action. 

There was little support for 
President Reagan’s call for 
sanctions against Libya in the 
wake of the Vienna and Rome 
incidents with 41 per cent of 
Britons questioned believing 
Britain should not support 


such sanctions. However, on 
sanctions againt countries 
which supported terrorism in 
general 31 per cent of Britons 
were in favour. 

Nearly two thirds of Britons 
and nearly half the French and 
West Germans thought mili- 
tary action by the United 
States against terrorists would 
make things worse: 

People's confused feelings 
about terrorism were revealed 
in a. question about the justifi- 
cation for terrorism. While 
about 90 per cent in all three 
countries said there was no 
excuse for the sort of incidents 
that occurred in Vienna and 
Rome, more than two-thirds 
agreed that those sort of 
incidents would continue so 
long as Isreal was unyeflding 
on the Palestine issue. 

The interview sample con- 
sisted of 1.945 in Britain, 994

An Inter-City 125 service

ened Settle-Ctitislefiae, could 
help to mate £1 million a year 
profit for British Rail accord- 
ing to a report by transport 
consultants. 

The £4,000 report by Trans- 
port and Environment Studies 
(Test), commissioned by the 
Settle-Cariisle Joint Action 
Committee, calls for an in- 
vestment of nearly £25 million 
in the 72-mile route so that a 
100 mph service can be intro- 
duced in 1989 when electrifi- 
cation of the east coast main 
line makes highspeed trains 
available. 

The travelling time of a 
little over three hours would 
he much fester than other road 
or rail routes and “compares 
very favourably” with foe air 
service. 

Test maintains that even 
without marketing the service, 
an estimated 722 passen g e r s a 


day would give a 55 per cent 
load on .the train; enough to 
•yield a 7 per cent return on the 
investment which would pay 
the cost of track improve- 
ments within 13 years and 
give a surplus of £36 million 
after 30 years. 

It argues strongly for the 
retention of foe Blackburn to 
Hellifidd branch, the urgent 
reopening of the Githero sta- 
tion and. a new “figure eight 
service” linking Leeds, Brad- 
ford, Manchester and Preston. 
A Skiplon to Carlisle service, 
stopping at stations presently 
used only by Dales Rail 
excursions, has also been sug- 
gested. 

“It would require the most 
skilful of adversaries to aigue. 
from the evidence pres en ted, 
against keeping these two lines 
open" Test says.

Arts seek 
Budget 
windfall 

By David Hewson 
Arts Correspondent 

Arts organizations are ex- 
pecting a windfall of between 
£10 million and £30 million a 
year from tax changes in next 
week's Budget- 

Theatre and musical com- 
panies, which have lost their 
battle for state grants above 
foe rate of inflation, may be 
among the main beneficiaries 
of new rules that will allow 
individuals and companies to 
set charitable donations 
against tax. 

The changes expected in foe 
Budget wifi cover all charities 
but arts groups have pressed 
for them. They say that in 
America, where contributions 
can already be set against tax, 
foe concessions have brought 
strong links between private 
individuals and the arts. 

Several arts bodies have 
submitted private memoran- 
da to the Treasury with sug- 
gestions about how foe new 
scheme could work. They 
believe that foe immediate 
potential for increasing gifts to 
foe arts will be in sponsorship 
by individuals to organiza- 
tions which they patronize 
regularly. 

The Arts Council is expect- 
ed to press companies to set 
up dulled marketing opera- 
tions to ensure that their 
dients know about the change. 

It is unlikely that the 
changes will come into force 
in full until 1988 when foe 
Inland Revenue mofves to 
computerized tax handling 

The final details will not be 
known until the Budget, but it 
seems likely that there will be 
a ceiling for tax deductible 
donations.

political give-and-take more 
robust, the commitment of

the turnover of membership 
greater. 

The Education Committee, 
Environment Committee and

aS examples of the second 
category. 

Most of the leaders of foe 
main parties have been on foe

when foe committee system 
was reformed. 

Committee proceedings are 
often little attended to, and it 
is difficult forambitious youn- 
ger members to make them-

At present, if faced with a 
choice between a place on a 
select committee and a parlia- 
mentary private secretaryship, 
the temptation for a younger 
member to get one foot on the 
ministerial ladder is strong. 

But experience gained in 
committee can be deployed on 
the floor of the House, and if 
the new respect and attention 
which have been directed 
towards committees by foe 
Westland affair are sustained, 
committee work will increas- 
ingly be seen as an important 
arena for members setting out 
to . make a name, for them- 
selves.

Aquino calls Cabinet meeting 

Australia boosts 
Philippines aid 


President Corazon Aquino 
has called a Cabinet meeting 
for tomorrow to decide wheth- 
er to proclaim a six-month 
revolutionary government to 
implement sweeping reforms 
and draw up a new constitu- 
tion for the Philippines. 

Yesterday she met for 30 
minutes with Mr Bill Hayden, 
Australia's Foreign Affairs 
Minister, who pledged a 50 
per cent boost in economic aid 
to her 13-day-old administra- 
tion, bringing Canberra’s 1986 
contribution to SI 7.5 million 
(about £8 3 million ).The US 
and Japan, which give foe 
greatest amount of aid to the 
Philippines, have also prom- 
ised to increase their contribu- 
tions. 

Meanwhile, Mr Marcos's 
political allies have de- 
nounced as “dictatorial” and 
“worse than martial law” Mrs 
Aquino's reported plan to 
proclaim a revolutionary gov- 
ernment. Mr Arturo 
Tolentino, Mr Marcos's run- 
ning mate in the February 7 
election, said: “A revolution- 
ary government is the very

Swept to power during a 
three-day military revolt and 
popular uprising. Mrs Aquino 
took her presidential oath in a 
“people's proclamation” 
hours before Mr Marcos fled 
foe country. Mr Tolentino said 
foe popular mandate, which 
circumvents the 1973 martial 
law constitution, “is foe worst 
type of dictatorship, worse 
than martial law, because it is 


a government of men not a 
government of law”. 

He said there would be no 
laws other than those Mrs 
Aquino and her ministers 
choose to obey and enforce 
during the transitional period 
“which could be six months or 
10 years. 

“We are at the mercy of foe 
people in power as to what 
laws govern us,” he said. 

Public criticism, coupled 
with the voiced reservations 
of Manila's diplomatic com- 
munity. stalled the proclama- 
tion of a revolutionary 
government which was to 
have occurred last Friday. 

Mis Aquino's advisers have 
proposed a six-month “legal 
hiatus”, during which a new 
constitution will be drawn up 
followed by a plebiscite. After 
its expected ratification, it is 
planned to hold combined 
general and local government 
elections.

Security

Customs authorities have 
confirmed tint, as a result of 
an IRA security alert daring 
the royal tour, all Irish pass- 
port-holders are being subject- 
ed to special scrutiny on 
arrival in Australia (Stephen 
Taylor writes from Adelaide). 

Irish nationals have been 
delayed for qBesthming and 
searches during what is being 
celebrated here as Irish Week. 

Mr Bob Spanswicfc, federal 
secretary of the Customs 
Officers* Association, said a

try had warned that suspected 
members of the IRA were 
thought to have travelled to

Royal handshake 
for Queenie 

From Stephen Taylor, Adelaide 


“Her Majesty plants a gum 
tree,” said foe programme for 
the Queen's -visit to Australia 
yesterday. Of such mundane 
fragments are royal tours com- 
posed. 

The tree-planting was a 
symbolic affair, renewing foe 
gum tree on the site where 200 
settlers landed and pro- 
claimed foe colony of South 
Australia 150 years ago. 

That the landing took place 
— indeed that South Australia 
was established at all — was no 
thanks to the The Times. 
which strongly opposed foe 
Wakefieldians. the extraordi- 
nary compendium of idealists 
and EstebUshraeni profiteers 
who lobbied successfully for 
the South Australia Bill. 

The paper thundered on 
July 2, 1834: “Our duty to the 
public requires that we should 
broadlv declare our entire 
distrust of the w hole character 
and tendency of such a 
project, and our hope that it 


may rather be strangled in foe 
birth than live just long 
enough to spread disappoint- 
ment and ruin.” 

Fortunately such views did 
not prevail, and among the 
descendants of the first settlers 
who gathered yesterday was 
Queenie Bulbeck. an impish 
89-year-old whose father was 
so sickly when he set out at the 
age of 1 5 on HMS Buffalo that 
it was feared he would not 
survive the trip. He did and so 
thrived that he sired many 
children, including Queenie 
when he was aged 75. 

Waiting for the royal arriv- 
al, Queenie Bulbeck ventured 
that the Queen must get fed 
up. “We make her do far loo 
much.” she said. 

The Queen arrived and duly 
turned spadefuls of earth on to 
the young gum tree. Intro- 
duced to Queenie Bulbeck. she 
shook her hand and smiled 
gently.

No one can touch Baskin-Robbins when

Last year over 300 million people bought

They were also voted America’s favourite

Obviously in the States they think Baskin-

THE TIMES TUESDAY MARCH 1 1 1986 



economy in crisis 

and wages 

increase as 




Even without the increased 
aid President Reagan is seek- 
ing for the Nicaraguan rebels, 
the critical slate of the 
country’s economy has forced 
theSa nrfin ista Government to 
introduce drastic new eco- 
nomic measures for the sec- 
ond time this year. 

A statement from the presi- 
dential office announced this 
weekend an- average increase 
of 50 per cent in prices and 
salaries. The price increases' 

are across the board. Salaries 

have already gone up 80 per 
cent in January to ofiset the . 
effect of 250 per cent inflation. 

The government statement 
said the measures were taken 
“to stimulate production”, 
thereby “supporting the mili- 
tary defence of the 
revolution". 

Aid delay 
favoured 
by Contras 

From Our Correspondent 
San Jos£, Costa Rka 

A leading anti-Sandinista 
political leader. Dr Arturo 
Cruz, says he favours a com- 
promise on Contra aid which 
would delay distribution of 
new military funds while 
peace talks are attempted with 
the Nicaraguan government 
Dr Cruz, one of the three ' 
leaders of the United Niczra- : 
guan Organization, said in an . 
interview here on Sunday; 
“My impression is that some 
son of aid will go." 

Dr Cruz said, he was in . 
favour of Congress appropri- 
ating aid but refraining from 
dispersing funds against die 
military component until a 
certain deadline had been- 
given to theContadora group . . 
to obtain -a (negotiated) na- 
tional solution with die Nica- 
raguan Government 
Dr Cnrzs conciliatory re- 
marks indicate that die . 
Contras recognize they face a 
stiff fight in Congress and may 
get no new aid unless they, 
appear, willing to lalk-

-the statement said theadSjust- 
ments would help “consoli- 
date the total defeat of the 
mercenary forces’% the 
Sandinistas’ usual term for the 
American-backed Contra 
rebds. 

, Facing a- lO-month-long 
economic blockade by the US 
and spending more than 40 
per cent of the national budget 

on defence, the Government 
finds itself economically 
strangled^ Only -two months 
ago it announced a devalua- 
tion of 150 per cent which, 
together with these latest mea- 
sures, is felt certain to boost 
the cycle of hyper-inflation. 


Diplomats in Managua said 
that if President Reagan suc- 
ceeds in persuading the US 
Congress to ajjprove $100 
million (£67 million) in aid to 
the estimated 1 5,000 Contras, 
the damage will be greater in 
economic than military terms 
inside Nicaragua. 

The 70,000-strong Sandinis- 
ta Army has been containing 
the Contras with consistently 
-greater ease in the last year, a 
pattern that is unlikely to 
change unless US military 
involvement increases dra- 
matically. 

Bui aid to the Contras 
obliges the Sandinistas to 
focus attention on defence, 
draining the rest of the impov- 
erished economy at incalcula- 
ble long-term political cost. 


Reagan fights for 
full funding of 
anti-Sandinistas 

FromMichael Binyon, Washington 


President Reagan does not 
want any . “half-way 
measures," and has not sent 
any signals to Congress that he 
is ready to compromise in his 
fight to secure $100 million 
(£67 million) in mitilary and 
other aid for the Contra rebels, 
the White House said yester- 
. day. 

“The President’s in the 
same position he was in last 
week. He’s proposed what we 
think is the best approach to 
Central American funding,” 
Mr Larry. Sjpeakes, the White 
Honse spokesman, said. “We 
don’t want any halfway mea- 
sures. That sums it up." 

His. remarks came , as Mr 
.Reagan stepped up his efforts 
to forcethe controversial pro- 
posal through Congress, with 
an address to an audience of 
conservative supporters and 
several meetings yesterday af- 
ternoon; with individual con- 
gressmen. 

. Senator James Sasser has 


proposed a freeze on the aid 
for six months to give a chance 
for diplomatic talks on Nica- 
ragua to get going. But the 
White House has rejected such 
a moratorium as being too 
long. Mr Philip Habib, the 
President's new envoy for 
Central America, is expected 
to leave today for talks with 
President Duarte in El Salva- 
dor. 

Mr Speakes said the Presi- 
dent would listen to what 
others have to say on the aid 
proposal and would discuss ft, 
but he had not changed his 
position. Officials here insist 
that Honduras, Costa Rica 
and other Central American 
states are privately urging the 
Administration not to let up 
in its efforts to help the 
Contras. 

However, a senior official 
admitted that the President 
would eventually probably 
have to settle for less than the 
full amount he warns - 


Liberals take lion’s share 
in Colombia election 


Vnm Geoffrey Matthews, Bogota 


Hie Liberal Party swept to 
an impressive victory in con- 
gressfeoal and local govern- 
ment elections in Colombia at 
the weekend which wen 
viewed as primaries for the 
forthcoming presidential elec- 
tion. 

On the basis of the Smday 
poll results, the liberal 
Party's presidential can d idat e, 
Sefior Virgflio Baroo Vargas, 
most be coasidered the 
favourite to win foe May 25 
presidential election, despite 
the con tinui n g divisions in the 
Liberal ranks. 

Although the Liberals have 
traditionally been Cotonrtria’s 
majority party and had been 
expected to garner the Eon's 
share of the votes, the scale of 
their triumph surprised politi- 
cal analysis b ere. 

With most results in, projec- 
tions yesterday gave the Liber- 


al Party 47 per cent and die 
Conservatives 36 per cent of 
the vote. 

Bat the big emprise of foe. 
election was: the disastrous 
showing of the Noevo 
Liberalistno movement,. * 
breakaway Liberal faction, 
which had been expected to 
bite deep into foe Liberal vote 
hot instead emerged with only 
a 9 per cent share. 

There mast now be serions 
doubts over whether Sefior 
Ltns Carlos Calan Sarmiento, 
the leader, of the breakaway 
Liberal faction, can continue 
to pursue foe presidency. Four 
years ago his candidacy split 
the Liberal vote ami led to the 
victory of the Conservative, 
Seier Belisario Betancnr. 
This year's Conservative pres- 
idential candidate, Sefior 
Alvaro Gfimea Hurtado, had 
dearly Imped to be the benefi- 


ciary of a similar spin in the 
Liberal vote. 

Sunday's results imdertiBed 
the old Colombian axiom that 
a week is a long time in 
politics. Last week the Liberal 
camp was pessimistic alxrat its 
chances of denting Sefior 
GaJan's challenge. There were 
also rumours that Sefior Baroo 
would step dowu on health 
grounds and be replaced as 
presidential candidate by far- 
mer President Alfonso Lopez 
Michdsen. Instead, Sefior 
Banco's position has been 
enormously strengthened and 
his hold on the candidacy 
secured. 

Apart from a few minor 
incidents, the elections were 
orderly and peaceful, despite 
fears that subversive groups, 
particularly the leftist** April 
19 Movement" (M-19), might 
try to disrupt foe voting. 


Sweden pays a silent tribute to Palme 



Mrs Lisbeth Palme, the widow 
of Olof Palme, with her sons 
Marten, Mattias and Jorknn, 
in Parliament daring a one- 
minute silence for foe assassi- 
nated Swedish leader. 

As foe docks strode noon, 
everything stopped and there 
was silence (Christopher Mo- 
sey writes from Stockholm). 

Offl foe streets crowds stood 
still and most traffic halted as, 
oa a cold, grey day with foe 
Baltic shrouded in fog, Sweden 
yesterday paid a silent tribute 
to the Prime Minister cut 
down by a single shot fired by 


a man police describe as “a 
professional murderer" on 
February 28. 

With foe precision and effi- 
ciency on which it prides itself, 
Sweden switched to contem- 
plate foe act of violence. All 
trains, the Stockholm under- 
ground, bases, Gothenburg's 
trams and taxis stopped. 
Shops, offices and factories 
fell silent. 

Even foe thus far futile hunt 
for Mr Palme's killer was 
halted as were the security 
preparations for his state fo- 


neral on Saturday, which will 
be attended by 600 guests, 
including many world traders. 

Britain will be represented 
by Lord Wbiteiaw, Lord Presi- 
dent of the Council. Mr Neil 
JCuutock. leader of foe Opposi- 
tion, and Mr David Owen, 
leader of the Social Democrat- 
ic Party, and a member of Mr 
Palme's Independent Disar- 
mament Commission will also 
attend. 

Yesterday it was announced 
Mr Shimon Peres, the Prime 
Minister of Israel, heavily 


guarded, would fly to Stock- 
holm in a special aircraft, to 
attend foe funeraL 

Back in Parliament a bou- 
quet of flowers was put on the 
bench that was usually occu- 
pied by Mr Palme. 

As foe silence ended, Mr 
Ingemund Beugtsson. the 
Speaker, paid tribute to the 
former leader saying Mr 
Palme “wanted to Eve in an 
open society. He believed 
there should be no gap be- 
tween foe elected and the 
elector". 


Turks free 
pacifist 
leaders 

From Rasit Gnrdilek 
Ankara 

An Istanbul military court 
ordered yesterday the release 
of the last six Turkish pacifists 
re maining in jail in connec- 
tion with the controversial 
trial of the leaders of the 
Turkish Peace Association. 

' The court also withdrew 
arrest warrants for five other 
pacifists. 

Twenty-three leaders of the 
association, including writers, 
journalists, lawyers, academ- 
ics and artists, had . been 
sentenced to prison terms 
ranging from ’ five to eight 
years, but the sentences were 
twice repealed 

Seventeen of them had been 


released earlier, including Mr 
Apaydin, former chair- 
man of foe Istanbul Bar 


Orfzan Ar 


ydin, former 
Istanbul 
Association and the deputy 
president of the World Union 
of Bar Associations, who died 
of cancer last month. 

At yesterday's hearing Dr 
Erdal Atabek. former chair- 
man of the Turkish League of 
Physicians, demanded his and 
bis friends' acquitiaL noting 
that he had already spent 38 
months in prison. 

The pacifist leaders, includ- 
ing Mr Mahmui Dikerdem, a 
former ambassador, were ar- 
rested during the crackdown 
on intellectual dissent after the 
1980 military coup. They were 
accused of subversive activi- 
ties in line with alleged in- 
structions from the outlawed 
Turkish Communist Party 
and the Moscow-nm World 
Peace CounciL 

‘ Their prosecution, along 
with other intellectuals and 
trade unionists, caused wide- 
spread criticism in the West.

Harare - The first rally held

Chilean junta opponents jailed 


Six leaders of Chile’s differ- 
ent opposition groups; includ- 
ing ibe editor of a popular 
magazine, have been impris- 
oned after charges were filed 
against them by foe military 
junta. .. 

The measure seems to be 
part of a crackdown on politi- 
cal leaders w ho are pushing 
hard forthe opposition to join 
forces and work together to . 
bring down General 
Pinochet's Government 

Four of the sx are associat- 
ed with the magazine Analisis, 
which has long advocated the 
unity- of the Chilean opposi- 
tion. TTiey are accused of 
violation of state security laws 
and, in the case of Sen or 
Fernando Paulsen, editor of 
An&lisis and Time m agaz i n e's 


From Lake Sagaris, Santiago 

Santiago correspondent defa- 
mation of foe aimed forces. 

Between them, Chile's six 
newest political prisoners rep- 
resent foe entire spectrum of 
the country’s divided opposi-. 
tion. Historically, the opposi- 
tion has been divided into two 
relatively powerful groups: foe 
Democratic Alliance, centred 
on the moderate Christian 
Democratic Party, and foe 
Popular Democratic Move- 
ment fed by the Communists. 

Among the prisoners are 
Senor Andres Palma, presi- 
dent of the Christian Demo- 
cratic Youth. 

' Their arrest has created a 
broad support movement the 
National Commando of Soli- 
darity, which is led by Sefior 
Alejandro Hales, a former 


Minister of Mines in President 
Eduardo Frei's Christian 
Democratic Government 

In a peaceful demonstration 
in Santiago’s main law courts 
late last week, Senor Hales 
said foe regime had stepped 
up threatening tactics. 

He accused the junta of 
using legislation designed to 
protect a democratic govern- 
ment against political leaders 
who are fighting precisely for a 
return to democratic rule in 
Chile. 

Shortly before being impris- 
oned, the prominent indepen- 
dent Senor Manuel Sanhueza, 
said the crackdown was a 
challenge to Chilean dissi- 
dents to “show then ability to 
cany on foe process of restor- 
ing democracy". 


South Africa police tighten 
security after bombings 


From Michael Hornsby, Johannesburg 


Security has been tightened 
at all South African police 
stations after foe detention of 
a white woman at the weekend 
in connection with the plant- 
ing of bombs at three police 
stations over the past few 
weeks. 

Meanwhile, the police re- 
ported that they had shot dead 
a black man allegedly throw- 
ing a petrol bomb at a house in 
the Bongweni township, near 
Cookhouse in foe Eastern 
Cape, on Sunday night They 
said they also found the body 
of a 15-year-old black youth 
who had apparently been 
hacked to death. 

So far the only information 
foe police have released about 
the mysterious white woman 
is that she is 27 years old, was 
arrested in Johannesburg. 
They said she had three limpet 
mines in her possession. 

Last Tuesday a mine of that 
type exploded in a second- 
floor lavatory in John Vorster 
Square, foe police headquar- 
ters for the Johannesbuig 
region. Two white policemen 
and two white civilians were 
injured by flying glass. 

Last Friday night a similar 
device was found in the 
women's lavatory at a police 
station in foe Hillbrow district 
of centra] Johannesburg, it 
was taken into a cordoned-off 
side street and detonated. A 
few windows were broken, but 
no one was hurt. 

Bomb attacks on police 
stations in black areas are 


frequent, but attacks on sta- 
tions in while areas are a new 
phenomenon. No organiza- 
tion has yet claimed responsi- 
bility for them, although the 
outlawed African National 
Congress (ANC) would be the 
most likely suspect. 

It is not unknown for the 
ANC to use whites for sabo- 
tage missions. Only recently a 
young white man was sen- 
tenced to seven years in prison 
for treason after undergoing 
military training with foe 
ANC abroad and returning 
with an AK-47 rifle and a 
number of hand grenades. 

In Cape Town, three blacks 
have agreed to come forward 
and testify publicly at a possi- 
ble murder hearing foal they 
saw the police shoot dead a 
man after he had attempted to 
give himself up. They also say 
the police shot dead another 
man who was lying wounded 
on the ground. 

The incidents allegedly oc- 
curred when the police shot 
dead seven black men on 
March 3 in Guguletu. near 
Cape Town. The men were 
said by the police to be ANC 
"terrorists" who had been 
planning to ambush a van 
carrying police to work. 

A young British doctor, 
David Bowen, aged 28. who 
has been working as a 
gynaecologist for foe past four 
years at Soweto's 
Baragwanath hospital, has 
said be intends to leave South 
Africa after being attacked last 


week by a black mob while 
going home on his motor 
cycle. 

Describing it as a "horrific 
experience". Dr Bowen said 
he was surrounded by the 
crowd who threw stones at 
him and brat him on foe head 
with a metal pole even after he 
had explained he was a doctor. 
He believed he had been saved 
from death only because he 
was wearing a helmeL 

• Miners' strike: Some 

20.000 black miners are re- 
ported to be on strike at two 
gold mines south-west of Jo- 
hannesburg. The management 
of the Blyvooraitzicht Gold 
Mine near Carletonvilfe, 
owned by Rand Mines, said 
that 7,000 miners had gone on 
strike there yesterday for rea- 
sons not yet known. 

The National Union of 
Mineworkers (NUM) claimed 
that 10,000 blacks were in- 
volved in a “sit-in strike 
underground" at the mine 
because of discontent with foe 
"bonus system" whereby 
white miners get extra pay 
depending on the amount of 
ore dug out by the gangs of 
black labourers in their 
charge. 

At the Anglo-American 
Corporation's Vaal Reefs 
mine, near KJerksdorp. which 
is foe second-biggest gold 
mine in South Africa, some 

10.000 black employees are 
reported to be still not work- 
ing in a dispute that began last 
month. 


Stand-off 
by sacked 
general 

Quito (Reuter) — 
Ecuadorean naval officers ap- 
peared to have defused foe 
crisis in the armed forces 
yesterday, persuading the dis- 
missed armed forces chief to 
submit to military authority. 

But General Frank Vargas 
Pazos, sacked by President 
Febres Cordero on Friday for 
insubordination, said he 
would remain at the Manta air 
base until a council of military 
chiefs considered his case. 

“I have agreed to submit 
myself to military laws and 
this problem will be resolved 
according to the legal military 
order." he said. 

It was not dear whether the 
stand-off would be acceptable 
to the President or to General 
Luis Pineiros, the Defence 
Minister, whom General Var- 
gas has accused of bribery and 
misuse of military funds. 

General Pineiros has denied 
any wrongdoing, and has 
called in government auditors.

Minister and current chair- 
man of foe EEC Council of

Sefior Fraga carefully em- 
phasized, however, that "we 
are the real Afoutiosts". The 
.Government had turned the 
referendum into a plebiscite, 
•and the question before the 
voters was "full of tricks." 

A ‘‘yes" remit meant Spans 
would hare only “second-class 
nation states" in the affiance. 
The Opposition wants full 
integration in Nato’s com- 
mand structures, which is

The Government resorted to 
desperate arguments to win 
over voters in the last honrs of 
campaigning. Speaking in 
Basque country, Sefior Fran- 
dsco Fentfindez Ordonez, foe 
Foreign Minister, said that; 
should Spain quit Nato, “mor- 
ally speaking the European 
Community inH hare finished 
with ns". 

Groups opposed to Nato 
membership said Sunday’s 
rally in Madrid, attended by 
about 100,000 people, showed 
victory within their grasp. 
Sefior Antonio Gala, foe play- 
wright, who is chairman of foe 


“Citizens' Forum for Leaving 
Nato", declared: "There are 
times like now when citizens' 
movements are more impor- 
tant than the political parties. 
We are going to go where we 
want to, and not where they 
want to take ns." • 

Pacifist and anti-Nato 
groups joined forces with the

By Caroline Moorehead 

A historian and prize-win 
ning writer, working as j 
teacher for adults at a hig] 
school near Havana, has beer 
in detention since the summe* 
of 1981. Ariel Htdalgc 
Guillen, who is 40, is beinj 
held under Article 10S-I 
which covers anyone wht 
"incites against the socia 
order, international solidarity 
or foe socialist state by meant 
of oral or written propagande 
or any other form.” 

The case against him was 
not, however, based on .a 
manuscript found in bis 
house, in which he protested 
that Cuba was not a true 
socialist state but a bureaucra- 
cy that had brought the coun- 
try’ to an economic standstill, 
bul on the evidence of the 
neighbourhood defence com- 
mittee. which said that be 
“talked too much.”

■ Tamils step 


Museveni 


moves m 
on north 


From Charles Harrison 
Nairobi 


National Resistance Army 
troops are poised to take 
northern Uganda — the last 


region to fall - after capturing 
Gulu. 208 miles north of 


Guiu, 208 miles north of 
Kampala, at the weekend. 
Gulu is the main administra- 
tive centre for the whole of 
northern Uganda. 

President Museveni's 
troops captured Kampala on 
January 26 after driving out 
the armed forces of the former 
ruling Military Council, led by 
General Tito Okello and his 
army commander. General 
Basilio Okello. 

Since then, they have been 
consolidating their hold on the 
country by moving first to the 
Kenya border in eastern 
Uganda and then turning 
northwards. 

Until last week Uganda was 
virtually divided in two: the 
NRA controlled the south, 
east and west of the country 
while the Military Council 
controlled the north. 

But the fleeing Military 
Council troops appear to have 
lost their will to fight as Gulu 
fell within three hours 

There has been no news of 
General Basilio Okello, who 
appears to have left Gulu 
before the assault. General 
Tito Okello. the former head 
of state, is in Sudan and has 
not vet responded to appeals 
from Mr Museveni to return 
to Uganda under a promise of 
safe conduct. 

There are still large areas of 
northern Uganda to be taken 
by Mr Museveni’s troops, and 
uis thought they will continue 
their advance north to the 
Sudan border, about 60 miles 
from Gulu. 

It is believed the NRA will 
not advance on the West Nile 
region, separated from the rest 
or Uganda by the river Nile, 
until later. 

However, they will not be 
able to claim complete control 
of the country until they have 
taken the West Nile region. 

The situation in Kampala, 
the capital, was more normal 
yesterday than it had been for ; 
years, with large shipments of 
Ugandan coffee, the country’s 
main export, flowing daily 
into neighbouring Kenya for 
shipment to work! markets - 
earning large sums of money ! 
at the current high world j 
market pnee. 


p attacks on 

privilege 

Villagers critics 


From Michael Hamlym Colombo 


Proving precisely how diffi- 
cult it is to forecast a volatile 
insurgency, news of a renewed 
terrorist attack on Sinhalese 
civilians in Sri Lanka’s East- 
ern Province was breaking just 
as the National Security Min- 
ister was telling me that the 
situation in the east was much 
improved, and that it could be 
cleared up “I think by June". 

Mr Lalith Athulaihmudali 
said there could be no timeta- 
ble. “no miracles”, but he was 
confident that security had 
improved, “partly because of 
the military effort, but partly 
because tbe people there are 
with us. 

“The terrorists in the areas 


they controlled did not behave 
well.” he said. “They have 
hung too many people on the 
lamp-posts. But we have 
proved the old military theory 
of domination by presence. 
We have been able to put 
enough people on the ground 
there.” 

Mr Athulaihmudali, the 
Oxford and Harvard-educated 
strong man of the Cabinet 
was not so confident about the 
situation in the far north. In 


the Jaffna peninsula the mili- 
tary have been unwilling to do 
much ground patrolling, for 
fear of road mining, and have 
concentrated on air attacks on 
rebel targets. 

The air bombardment has 
caused distress among the 
densely populated lanes and 
villages of the peninsula. Mr 
Athulaihmudali said yester- 
day that he had slopped using 
bombs “because they were so 
inaccurate”, although he ad- 
mitted: “Air power necessarily 
means that someone is going 
to be killed that you didn’t 
intend. We are also having a 
serious rethink about using 
the rockets as well,” he said. 

Threats by the Tamil mili- 
tants, who are fighting for a 
separate state in the north and 
east, to acquire surface-to-air 
missiles were treated serious- 
ly, but he was confident that 
by the time they were able to 
purchase them the armed 
forces would have counter- 
measures in place. 

Reports circulating in Co- 
lombo indicate that the Liber- 
ation Tigers of Tamil Eelam, 
the bluest group of active 


militants, has failed in two 
attempts to buy Sam 7 mis- 
siles from sources in Britain. 

Yesterday's attack in East- 
ern Province was on Sinhalese 
who had returned to a village 
from which they had been 
driven by the militants. A 
police guard at an .irrigation 
project was inadequate to 
protect them when they were 
attacked again. Eight people 
were killed, two of them 
Tamils working on the 
project 

Sinhalese civilians in a simi- 
lar situation in neighbouring 
Dehiwaite were attacked last 
month and 36 were killed, 
together with four of their 
military escort. 

Attacks of this kind have 
been increasing recently. The 
aim appears to be to drive the 
Sinhalese out of areas which 
the militants claim as tradi- 
tional Tamil homelands^ 

Military attacks upon i amil 
civilians have also continued. 
On the same day as the 
Dehiwatte attack, security 
forces opened fire on a crowd 
of Tamil civilians as they 
threshed their paddy in fields 


in the Amparai district Re- 
ports suggest that a group of 
Muslim farmers who had been 
driven off by Tamil militants 
returned with the security 
forces. Forty people died 

In response to cries of 
outrage at the indiscriminate 
slaughter, an inquiry by the 
armed forces chiefs of staff 
was set up. “After I get the 
report I shall hand it to tbe 
Attorney-General for action,” 
Mr Athulathmudali said. 

There are also protests 
about a security zone set up in 
Jaffna in which a half-mile 
circle has been drawn around

Rivals battle for Begin party 


From Ian Murray, Jerusalem 


The battle for control of the 
Herut party of Mr Menachem 
Begin is under way at its first 
national convention since 
1979. 

The former Prime Minister 
did not come out of his self- 
imposed political exile for the 
event and sent a message to 
say that his position as chair- 
man was now vacant and Lhal 
he hoped the party would 
emerge strengthened and unit- 
ed under the leadership of Mr 
Yitzhak Shamir. 

That wish seems a pious 
hope. In the run-up to the 
convention. Mr Shamir has 


been strongly challenged by 
hardline factions supporting 
Mr David Levy and Mr Arid 
Sharon. Mr Shamir seems 
certain (o be allowed to con- 
tinue as party leader simply 
because he alone can benefit 
from the agreement with the 
Labour Party to become 
Prime Minister from next 
October. 

But at this convention his 
two main challengers, along 
with Mr Moshe .Arens, his 
leading supporter, are wheel- 
ing and dealing behind the 
scenes to lake over key posi- 
tions so that they can influ- 


ence policy for the next 
general election in 1988. 


Each challenger claims that 
he is the true bar to Mr Begin 
and each challenger is already 
complaining that his rivals 
have fiddled elections for 
convention delegates in order 
to secure a majority within the 
party. 


The one thing certain is 
that, whoever wins, the parly 
will continue to seek young 
supporters by insisting that 
Israel must hang on defiantly 
to all the territory it now 
occupies. 


Waldheim faced with fresh Nazi accusations 


From Richard Bassett 
Vienna 


The Austrian weekly maga- 
zine Profit, which last week 
reported details of Dr Kurt 
Waldheim's alleged wartime 
membership of the Nazi 
Brownshirts (SA). yesterday 
published further documents 
detailing the former United 
Nations Secretary-General's 
alleged links with the Nazis. 

These included the findings 
of a denazification commis- 


sion responsible for vetting Dr 
Waldheim in 1946 to decide 
whether he was eligible to 
practise as a lawyer in postwar 
Austria. 


Dr Waldheim has consis- 
tently denied ever having been 
a member of the SA or 
involvement in any wartime 
atrocities carried out in the 
Balkans by a unit he was 
attached to. 

According to ProfiL the 
denazification commission. 


which investigated 13,000 
cases in 1946, entered in its 
records that Dr Waldheim bad 
been a member of an SA 
riding squadron. 

As the commission's inqui- 
ries had to be answered per- 
sonally, the magazine said 
yesterday that it found it 
difficult to believe that Dr 
Waldheim did not know 
about his SA membership.

French elections: Part 2 


Why the voters keep their party choices secret 


The murder of a Socialist 
supporter, helping to pot up 
party campaign posters, by a 


From Diana Geddes, Paris 


of extreme-right Nation- 
ant poster stickers at the 


ai Front poster stickers at the 
weekend was an eloquent re- 
minder of why most French 
people prefer to keep their 
political affiliations to them- 
selves. 

Although they have a repu- 
tation as one of the most 
“politicized” nations in the 
world, and are always ready to 
engage in political argument, 
they are virtually never willing 
to reveal which party they 
support 

Asking a Frenchman which 
way he voted in the last 
election is like asking how 
much money he earns. It is a 
completely private affair. The 
secret is not even shared 
between man and wife. 

That is why no one would 
ever dream of putting a “Vote 
Mitterrand” sticker on their 
car bumper, or an “I hack 
Chirac" poster in their front 
window, as in Britain. “You 
would be asking to get your 
tyres slashed or a brick 
through your window,” a 
shocked friend exclaimed. 

Similarly, no party candi- 
date would dream of going 


round knocking on doors can- 
vassing for votes. “That would 

be considered an 'oiteinte d la 
vie priv€e\ an invasion of 
individual privacy,” a Ganllist 
candidate explained. 

The most a voter normally 
receives in. direct attempts to 
persuade him to favour a party 
or candidate Is a pamphlet 
outlining the party’s progress, 
mailed to his home address. 
That is paid tor by the state, 
provided the party won more 
than S per cent of the vote in 
the last general election. 

Nearly all other campaign 
expenses are met by the 
individual parties or the candi- 
dates themselves. There is no 
limit to how much may be 
spent, but there are curiously 
few' complaints about any par- 
ty having an unfair advantage 
because of the superiority of 
its fnnds- 

This could well have some- 
thing to do with the fact that 
the most powerful weapon in a 
party’s campaign arsenal — 
television time — cannot be 
bought. 



In the past, political big- 
wigs seemed to beam ' down 
with a uniform iy toothpaste- 
ad grin from virtually every 
street corner, though now the 
official campaign l«w begun 
posters are supposed to be 
limited to special official cam- 
paign boardings. 


People complain that they 
have heard it all before. While 
they are disillusioned with the 
Socialists, they do not believe 
that tbe old right team will be 
able to do much better. 


“They all sound the same 
nowadays, don’t they?” tbe 
right-wing former-mayor of a 
little village in Seine et Marne 
grumbled. “They all lie, and 
they’ve got nothing new to tell 


The Government allocates a 
fixed amount of time for party 
political broadcasts during the 
final two weeks of a campaign, 
totalling 90 minutes for each 
of the two main parties of right 
and left. The parties then 
usually allocate that time in 
accordance with the number of 
their parliamentary deputies. 


But in the country there is 
virtually nothing, whereas in 
Britain one would expect the 
party colours everywhere dur- 
ing an election campaign. 


AH elections are considered 
boring by those living through 
them, but the French elector- 
ate appears even more bored 
by this election than most in 
the past despite the critical 
importance of its outcome. 


• Poll finale: Under French 
law, no polls may be published 
in tbe final week of the 
campaign. The last polls, pub- 
lished at the weekend, indicate 
sopport for the right-wing 
RPR-UDF alliance of between 
42 per cent and 44 per cent of 


French campaigns are near- 
ly always low-key. There ts 
none of the omnipresent carni- 
val atmosphere of an Ameri- 
can election, for example. 
Indeed, were it not for televi- 
sion and press coverage, it 
might sometimes almost be 
wondered if it really was going 
on at all. 


That is hi large part due (o 
tbe fact that most of the 
French feel that they have 
been firing through an election 
campaign not only for the past 
couple of months but for the 
past five years, ever since the 
Socialists managed to seme 
power for the first time in 27 
years. 


292 to 297 seats in the new 
assembly, only just enough to 
provide them with the overall 
majority they insist tbs y need 
before they would be wiUiiig to 
form a government. 


Tbe Socialists are given 28 
to 31 per cent, the Communists 
between 10 and 16.5 per cent, 
and the extreme-right Nation- 
al Front 6 to 8 per cent

Leading traditionalists 
within the Soviet Communist 
Party have launched a cam- 
paign to halt the debate on 
special privileges tor senior 
members that accompanied 
the 27th party congress. 

Yesterday Mr Igo Schvetz, a 
member of the new Central 
Committee and a leading party 
organizer, denied that many of 
the privileges — indnding elite 
buffets, shops and hospitals - 
existed. To the audible disbe- 
lief of foreign journalists, he 
cfoimed that he was not per- 
mitted to attend any special 
shops as a Central Committee 
member. “I also stand in the 
queues, and we stand 
together,” he said. 

Mr Schvetz angrily dis- 
missed a question on the issue 
from The Times as “an artifi- 
cially aired question” and 
denied that it had occupied 
anything but an insignificant 
proportion of the 168,000 
suggestions for party rule 
changes in the run-up to the 
congress, which ended last 
week. 

Senior Western diplomats 
claimed later that his press 
conference — the last of a 
series on congress issues — 
was evidence of a deep split 
within the party on the issue 
and the degree of open debate 
on it that should be permitted. 

Tbe debate was seen as the 
first sign of significant opposi- 
tion to the reforming drive of 
Mr Mikhail Gorbachov. 

Western sources claim that 
the privileges also include 
access to special housing, 
holiday facilities and other 
aspects of Soviet life unavail- 
able to ordinary workers. All 
members of the Central Com- 
mittee receive black limou- 
sines with a chauffeur, which 
have die right to use the 
central lanes on all Moscow's 
boulevards reserved for top 
party and government cars. 

In die congress debates, the 
privileges were bitterly at- 
tacked by, among others, Mr 
Boris Yeltsin, the tough new 
chief of the Moscow City 
Communist Party and a junior 
member of the Politburo. He 
was later indirectly rebuked by 
Mr Yigor Ligacbev, the Polit- 
buro number two, who said the 
limits to public criticism of 
sensitive issues had been over- 
stepped already. 

Yesterday Mr Schvetz sup- 
ported that view, reacting 
defensively to all questions on 
privileges. He acknowledged 
that special duties existed for 
party members, but argued 
that die tradition went back to 
die era of Lenin and was 
shnOar for other Soviet orgam- 
zatioHs, such as industrial 
enterprises. 

Amoi% other touting figures 
who have lent their weight to 
tbe campaign to restrict the 
debate is President Gromyko. 
This backlash is believed by 
Western expats to have 
strong support among tbe 
middle ranks of die 18 million 
members of tile party. 

Mr Schvetz also disclosed 
yesterday that pre-conference 
attempts to have enforced 
retirement for officials built 
into tbe revised party rales 
had foiled.

technology and experimenting 
this season with some imagi-

This was a good collection, 
but one that demands a per- 
fect figure and a sophisticated 
way of life. The only conces- 
sion to easy Italian elegance 
was a long pleated chiffon 
skirt worn with elongated knit 
cardigans' • and some 
mouthwatering colours of ap- 
ple green, orange sorbet, and 
primose yellow. 

It was the same story at 
Ferre, who needs the best less 
in town to show off his short, 
tight skirts or his cut-away 
black jersey evening dresses 
circled with gilded hoops at 
the waist Ferre’s structure is 
subtle and so are the best ofhis 
colours: caramels and beiges

TV game shows are 
moving into the 
front line of the 
ratings war, reports 
Michael Watts 


An independent television producer 
is in his London office near Bond 
Street explaining an idea for a game 
show called Celebrity Garbage. 
--'■You lip out the dustbin, and 
.people have to guess whose dustbin 
it is. If bottles fell out you know it’s

Jlgame shows represent “loot" and 
“good fun". They are the mainstay 
. -of his company. Action Time, 
which he started in 1980 with a 
liorrowed £ 10.000. and which today 
.. is thought to be worth more than £3 
million. Action Time has a financial

role in the new, improved age of

‘If a game takes 
five minutes to explain 
it will be boring’ 

Jeremy Fox 




... Game shows, which embrace the 
“family entertainment’’ of The Get 7 - 
.. oration Game and quizzes like 
Fami/y Fortunes , are as old as 
.television itself, and growing with 
; the same rapacity. They are without 
doubt more numerous and popular 
than in the heyday, during the 1 950s 
<- and early 1960s. of Take Tour Pick. 


are glossy and expensive. Their 
makers recognize that they are siUl 
more economic in attracting view- 
ers than most other forms of 
television. 

Take Central Television, which 
likes “reward" games with prizes. It 
prohably makes The Price is Right 
for a total of £70,000 a show, at the 
rale of one a day over five weeks: 

' but the show is regularly watched by 
12 million viewers, and has 70.000 
possible contestants awaiting its 
next series. Central's Blockbusters. 
for young contestants, is shown in 
some regions every evening but one. 
an innovation that (ike the BBC's 
Mastcrtcam and Channel 4*s Count- 
down, it has borrowed from the 
American practice of “stripping" 
programmes across the week's view- 
ing. The day excepted is Sunday, 
when Central networks BuJIscye. 
recently the country's highest-rated 
quiz with 13'/» million viewers. 

Bu/istyes gimmick is throwing 
darts. Caichpfirases. more modem, 
projects computer graphics on to a 
large screen. Game Far .4 Laugh 
thrives on embarrassing contestants 
with silly stunts. . Mastermind turns 
viewers into voyeurs at an inquisi- 


tion. Fami/y Fortunes was based on 
opinion polls. Blind Date, with Cilia 
Black match-making young couples, 
is a “people" game show, quite 
different from The Price Is Right, a 
“greed” show. 

Simple catchphrases can contrib- 
ute to success. The Golden Shot , a 
popular 1970s show produced by 
Midlands’ A TV. had contestants 
firing a crossbow, but what one 
remembers is the host’s ritual 
request of his assistant, “Bemie. the 
bolt, please!" Now The Price Is 
Right boasts that half the car dealers 
in the Midlands have appropriated 
for their saies-pitch “Come on 
down!", the command with which 
Leslie Crowiher summons lucky 
members of the audience to play. 

One definition of a game show is 
that audiences participate both on- 
screen and at home. Fox makes a 
further distinction: “Game shows 
you stand up, quiz shows you sit 
down." He and colleagues like 
Jeremy Beadle, host of Game Ford 
Laugh, test new quiz formats, up to 
200 a year, in his office equipped 
with scoreboard, buzzers and bells. 
His rule is that if a game takes five 
minutes to explain, it will be boring. 


Game-show hosts should ideally 
enjoy and understand the game ana 
its logic. They must think on their 
feet and empathize with ordinary 
people, especially losers. “I try ana 
give contestants simple lessons in 
body language". Beadle explains. “I 
remind them, ‘teeth and eyes!’, 
which means, ‘smile and sparldef In 
television circles. Bob Monkhouse, 
former host of Family Fortunes, is 
widely considered to “have the 


licence-payers’ money, occasionally 
stumps up for a colour TV. The 
IBA’s stria guidelines allow prizes 
worth up to an average £4.000 a 
show, with a normal top prize of 

£1.750. : , :; 

William G Stewart, genial pro- 
ducer of The Price Is Right, whose 
prize-money sometimes totals 
£6,000, claims that taking part in 
the show, and having a, memento of 
the occasion, is more important to 
audience and contestants than 'win- 
ning money.His show, which turns 
its cameras on audiences and milks 
their excitement, was for years 
thought too uninhibited a format 
for British television. But within 
three weeks it had topped the 
ratings. Stewart a former Butlm's 
redcoat (“I genuinely like ordinary 
people”), talks to the audience for 
40 minutes before each show and 
notes likely contestants. Then they 
are galvanized by a tape of Landed 
Hope and Glory. “The British 
wor king -cla ss is a patriotic bunch of 
people”, he ruminates. 

Yet most British game shows are 
actually imported, generally from 
America, and often given different 
names. The Price Is Right, which 
began on NBC in 1957. is a . 
Goodson-Todman concept; like 
ff ’hats My Line. 7 , a veteran 36 lately- 
revived by Thames, and Blanket?

was called Match Game and played 
for $10,000. The Generation Game

Play Your Cards Right, exudes 
more personal warmth. 

The elements that make games 
successful can provoke a burst of 
philosophy from Anthony Gruner, 
British agent for the American 
game-show giants, Goodson- 
Todman. “A good game show is like 
a three-act play", he says. “A quiz 
might be considered a one-act play 
constantly repeated. The studio 
audience is the Greek chorus; and, 
obviously, the game must have its 
end, that dramatic moment.” 

The prizes are paltry compared 
with the fortunes dispensed by 
American shows, and, incidentally, 
British newspaper competitions. 
The BBC ever-conscious of the

Though less publicized than soap

The game show is one of 
the most durable commod- 
ities on United States 
television. Today theTe are 
more than 21 such shows 
flourishing on the air- 
waves, although more than 
90 per cent of them are 
aired either in the early 
morning or early evening. 
In a handful of US cities 
the shows are aired in 
what is calied prune time 
— usually after 7J0 in the 
evening, when most TV 
viewers are parked in front 
of their sets. 

The era of the big- 
money game shows began 
in the US in 1955 with The 
Sixty Four Thousand Dol- 
lar Question, which en- 
abled contestants to win 
big money by answering 
complex questions. It be- 


came an overnight sensa- 
tion, spawning many 
imitators, bid three years 
later the game show bob- 
ble burst Several contes- 
tants charged that popular 
quiz shows watched by 
millions were rigged. The 
ensuing scandal shook the 
TY industry and forced 
the networks to kill off the 
shows. 

•They were resurrected 
in 1961 and since then, 
like chat shows, afternoon 
soap operas and night- 
time news programmes, 
have become a regular 
part of the American tele- 
vision fabric. “It’s a multi- 
million dollar industry 
today”, says Arnold Gor- 
don, a marketing special- 
ist who runs workshops in 
Los Angeles colleges for 


aspiring game show con- 
testants. “it’s a booming 
market A new show start- 
ed recently called Chance 
of a. Lifetime where con- 
testants can win $1 Bul- 
lion. It’s big money and 
those are the shows that 
draw." 

Game shows hare al- 
ways been considered 
quick and cheap forms of 
entertainment, says Mi- 
chael Brockman, vice- 
president of daytime 
programming for the CBS 
network. “It costs around 
$100,000 to put on a show 
and efficient producers 
can shoot five programmes 
— or a week’s worth of 
shows — in one day. 
Afternoon soaps cost twice 
or three times as modi and 
you can only tape one half- 


hour segment a day. So it 
bo Os down to economics.” 

Yet despite the growing 
popularity of this land of 
fare, Bruce Noah, a Holly- 
wood game show producer, 
complains that television 
moguls still sneer when he 
suggests uring the quiz 
shows during peak view- 
ing hours. “Here network 
people call them ’greed’ 
shows and claim they 
pander to the lowest com- 
mon denominator. They 
say the shows wiD turn off 
night-time viewers. I don’t 
know what those execu- 
tives are working on. If it’s 
a series like Hill Street 
Blues, I take off my hat to 
them. But most of the staff 
I see is incredible junk.” 


and Ultra Quiz Japanese. Treasure 
Hunt was discovered in France by 
the small, independent Chats worth 
Television, whose other show, 
Bu/lseye, is one of the few big names 
devised in Britain. 

British television cannot support 
a game-show industry comparable 
with America's, but neither are 
there million-dollar prizes, girls in 
wet T-shirts, or cruel trials of 
physical endurance of the kind 
favoured in Japan. Alan Boyd does 
not expect these developments here, 
yet he cannot be certain of tbe effort 
upon standards of direct broadcast 
by Satellite-

The Irish actor Alan Devlin is 
bis country's leading exponent 
of the walk-off part. His career 
reached its zenith last year 
when he strode from the 
boards of Dublin’s Gaiety 
Theatre in the middle of HMS 
Pinafore, flounced in 
admiral's regalia up the audi- 
torium and installed himself 
in the pub across the road. A 
few minutes later he was 
trying to borrow £15 from the 
orchestra leader to finance the 
next few rounds. 

Despite long hours of self- 
examination Devlin — who 
Iasi night was intending to 
appear in a new play at the 
Soho Poly in London* - is 
still not quite clear why he 
does this sort of thing. In 1983 
he went Aw 0 / from O’Neill's .4 
Moon for the Misbegotten at 
the Riverside, and by the time 
his director tracked him down 
he was back across the water 
in the republic. (In spite of this ■ 
he managed to pick up a 
Society ofWest End Theatres' 
award for his performance.) 
The previous year he had

sprung himself from a produc- 
tion of the aptJy named Duck- 
ing Out at the Duke of York's, 
muttering some audible ob- 
scenities from the stage, and 
gravitating to the nearest wa- 
tering hole. His immediate 
reward was an earful from the 
star of the show, Warren 
Mitchell. 

After each of these episodes 
Devlin descended into an 
abyss of sdf-reproeeft and the 
blackest of contrition. On the 
face of it. the man is a victim 
of his own cycle of self- 
indulgence. But if you talk to 
any actor you discover that 
beneath the impulses of pro- 
fessional loyalty lurks the 
desire to inflict that grand 
gesture against the imprison- 
ment of a small pan in a long 
run. The difference is that 
while others dream of it, 
Devlin does it, to the point 
that his appeal to audiences is 
now partly that of a suicide on 
a parapet. Once more, he 
reckons — just once — and he

As if courting that disaster, 
his latest role is that of a 
drunken Irish building worker 
going on his ritual pay-day 
binge. “I think it’s veny brave 
of him to do it”, says the 
author, Shane Connaugbton. 
Most, including Devlin him-

Welsh nationalists 
are once more 
attacking holiday 
homes — a campaign 
police fear could 


soon prove fatal 


T he bombers are back in 
Wales, mid senior police 
officers fear that it is 
. only * matter, of time before 
- someone Is killed. After a tuE, 
allegedly for politicians to 
react to their demands, arson- 
. ists are attacking isolat- 
ed EngBsb-owned holiday 
homes. 

In the industrial south, peo- 
ple who are apparently even 
more ruthless and with differ- 
eat motives have resurrected 
their campaign against the 
“foreign invaders”. 

Since tbe ca mpai gn started 
la 1979, almost 100 homes 
have beta attacked. In the past 
three months, eight hemes m 
the north-west aid west have ' 
been destroyed, and in Cardiff 
a bomb has been ■ planted 
OBtside the National Coal 
Board. 

“Come borne to a real fire** 
is a .caption which has amused 
more than one cartoonist, hat

embers of their modest cesn- 
try retreat, tfojokehOs fiat. 

Perhaps for the first time 
they realize that, some regard 
then not merely as outsiders 
bat plunderers of a language ' 
and culture of which they have 
. no comprehension. 

Three organizations, 
Mndiod Amddiffyn Cymru, or 
MAC (tiie Movement to De- 
fend Wales), Codwyr Cymru 
(the Keepers of WalesX and 
Meibion Gfyndwr{the Sons of 
Glendower) have boasted 
about fires in tbe rural areas. 

They are motivated primari- 
ly by cultural fewarirki, fu- 
elled by such -historical 
injustices as the Welsh Not — .

children jmglit speaking the 
TangwagP were made to wear.

PoGce are worried about tbe 
new sophistication of the at-

go off after the emergency

devices exploded, sending a . 
fireball across a room. The’

protective dothing. 

There have been persistent 
rumours of links between the 
Welsh terrorists and organiza- 
tions such as the ETA, the 
Basque separatists, and the 
Provisional IRA. It . is under- 
stood, however, that the IRA

The Welsh campaign sterns

tered carnalities.

ment is partly to bhtme for tbe 
attacks because «f its refusal 
to recognize the second home 
problem has been rejected by 
Mr Nicholas Edwards, Secre- 
tary of State for Wales. 

Even ; the militant Welsh 
Langgage Society, which is 
not adverse to direct action in 
pursuit of Its aims has dissoci- 
ated itself from the extremists, 
saying their methods endanger 
lives. Detective Superinten- 
dent Gareth Jones of the

One of the great advantages of the 
non-dramatic visual arts, for the 
spectator at least, is that they do not 
tie one down to anyone else’s time- 
sense: you can spend five seconds, 
or five minutes, or five, hours in 
front of a painting, entirely accord- 
ing to your own taste and interest 
This is not, of course; necessarily 
siren as an advantage by the artists. 

Many long to control the time 
dimension as well as the other three, 
if only so that they can test the 
widespread - but almost certainly 
mistaken belief that if someone 
foils to appreciate a painting or 
sculpture in five minutes. Ire would 
surely see new profundities in it at 
the end. of five boms. But apart 
from that clearly the artistic render- 
re® dPtinte; movement in time; the 
passage and efiect of time, is for 
some artists an abiding challenge — 
one which, in the 20lh century 
particularly, has provoked all kinds 
of weird and wonderful responses. 

These attempts to render four 
dimensions in three or two are the 
central theme of a fascinating show 
at the Barbican Art Gallery until 
April 27^ Art and Time. Its chronicle 
of 20th-cemury artists' struggles to 
escape what the catalogue rather 
tendentiously calls “the ghetto of’ 
timelessness” begins, in effect, with 
the beginnings of cinema in the 
photography of Muybridge and 
Marey. Their work towards analyz- 
ing motion more accurately than 


ever before was iargefy scientific in 
intent and in any case relied on the 
timelessness of the individual image 
10 freeze the stages in a continuous 
process rather than deliberately 
trying to re-create for aesthetic 
effect something which existed and 
could be observed quite satisfactori- 
ly in its own sphere. Nevertheless, 
stop-motion photography did un- 
doubtedly reveal a whole world of 
hidden images — hidden because 
they were too transitory for the 
naked eye to catch — and these, duly 
fed into the universal image-bank, 
inspired artists to some rather 
remarkable new effects. 

The first visual coup of this 
exhibition is to show three Degas 
bronzes of a dancer together in such 
a way that they seem to depict 
different stages of a continuous 
•movement. We do not know wheth- 
er Dejps ever imagined them shown 
in this combination, but the point is 
well taken: one by one they may be 
frozen music, but together they at 
once introduce the dimension of 
time. 

More consciously, the I talian 
Futurists saw speed and motion as 
the specifically mddem elements of 
life, and therefore of art. and pieces 
like Balia's famous paintings of a . 
dog walking and a violinist playing 

g either, unfortunately* available 
r showing here) and Boccioni’s 
- sculpture of a walking man. Unique 
forms of continuity in space (1913). 
which is on show and is also the 
subject of a new booklet in the Tate 
Modem Masterpieces series (£2.95), 
clearly derive from the revelations 
of stop-motion photography. The 
Surrealists also found endless fasci- 
nation in the subject of time — 
often, it seems, from the very 
incongruity of trying to reflect it in a 
form which was by definition 
timeless. It is one of the show's 
bonuses that we are able to see 
major, unfamiliar paintings by Dali, 
Magritte (including a rare early 


abstract) and other key figures of the 
movement 


It is at about this point in the 
show that doubts begin to set in. 
however. The excitement and inte- 
rior dynamism of an frequently 
come from the artist's struggles to 
do the impossible, the collision of 
the irresistible force with the im- 
movable object It seems to me that 
there is a very perceptible decline in 
interest when we move on from 
attempts to render time in timeless- 
□ess — the Grecian Urn effect as it 
were — and come instead upon the 
newer forms like mobiles and 
kinetic art and then on to video and 
performance art which build in the 
dimension of time quite literally. 



However, when the artists are not 
trying to chain us in the ghetto of 
their own time-sense, sitting in front 
of a machine or a television screen 
while it completes its ordained 
cycle, there is much in this show to 
please and absorb. It is necessary to 
see even the most tiresome video 
upstairs — if not all through — in 
order to find out just what the fault 
of artistic logic (or artistic econom- 
ics) is. The theme, in other words, is 
more important than the individual 
exhibits, and this remains, encour- 
agingly, one of the very few current 
shows which not only inform but 
make us re-examine many of our 
normal assumptions and enjoy the 
exercise. 

Time and re-examination also 
feature, though rather differently, in 
an odd little show. New Vision 56- 
66. at the Warwick Arts Trust in 
Pimlico until March 23. The “new 
vision" in question was that pro- 
pounded by the New Vision Centre 
Gallery, one of the livelier indepen- 
dent selling galleries in London 
from 1956 to 1966. and one of the 
very few, perhaps the only, devoted 
exclusively to abstract art at the 
time. The paintings on show nearly 
all come from the collection of the 


gallery's co-founder and director 
(and himself a painter), Denis 
Bowen, and were ail originally 
shown at the gallery, or at least are 
contemporary work by gallery art- 
ists. There are a few now, or still, 
famous names: one may note 
Gillian Ayres. Michael Rothenstein. 
Karl Weschke, Paul Feiler and, 
rather improbably. Peter Blake. 

S ing through a brief and quickly 
[-gotten abstract phase (the paint- 
ing, incidentally, is a beauty). There 
are also some notable foreigners, 
including Heinz Mack, with a very 
early minimalist painting, and Rob- 
ert Goodnough, a minor but well- 
reputed New York Abstract 
Impressionist 


The big question, inevitably, is 
how does it all look now? In the 
whirligig of fashion the 20/30-year 
gap is probably the most difficult to 
negotiate comfortably, and as it 
happens I saw the show with a 
painter friend now in his early 
thirties, who found it all terribly 
dated and depressing. 1. on the other 
hand, enjoyed it not only as a 
nostalgia trip to the kind of thing 
which was “modem art" when I was 
a student in London, but also on its 
own merits: this kind of tree-form, 
lyrical or tachisle abstraction is just 
beginning to look good again. Not 
all of it naturally — some are more 
talented than others — but well 


worth another look and another 
think. 

There is more potent nostalgia, 
and something else in addition, in 
the retrospective show of photo- 
graphs by Roger Mayne at the 
Victoria and Albert until May 31. It 
covers his whole career from the 
first steps, under the influence of 
Cartier-Bresson and the abstrac- 
tions of the St Ives school of 
painters, right through to his in- 
tensely poetic work for the Shell 
Guide to Devon, a collaboration 
with his wife Ann Jellicoe. and 
beyond (though not including, un- 
fortunately. any of the exquisite 
colour work in his ICA show of 
1978). 

But the main weight is laid on his 
photo-journalism of the Fifties and 
Sixties, especially the street scenes 
he shot in Southam Street, North 
Kensington, over the years 1956-61. 
These Iasi do constitute an unique 
document, and recall another aspect 
of the period in which the New 
Vision Centre flourished, this time 
with an intensity too great to call 
nostalgic. But surely announcing, as 
the catalogue categorically docs, 
that this is Mayne's “grail period" 
does severely underestimate the 
variety and staying-power of one of 
the best photographers working in 
Britain today.

Missionary 
fervour still 
unabated 




It is slightly worrying that the 
■veteran American pianist Eari 
Wild is not better known in 
this country, for it suggests we 
are slow to recognize foe 
importance of foe Romantic 
revival which he. more than 
anyone, has promoted with 
such vigour and passion. Thir- 
ty and forty years ago. when 
most of the work of Liszt was 
considered cheap and exhiw- 


tionisi, Wild was playing some 
of foe more flamboyantly 


dramatic pieces with a respect 

' f — -■ — 1 *»«'io which 


for foe heroic style 
seemed dangerously oto-Iash- 
ioned in a solemn, clinua! age. 

Now. at 70. bis missionary 
fervour has not abated He 
still rets angry when the music 
of Liszt is denigrated by 
people who simply do not 
understand it, and he is mark- 
ing the centenary of foe 
composer's death next week 
with three recitals at foe 
Wigmore Hal! designed to 
demonstrate the extraordi- 
nary inventiveness, lyricism 
dad imaginative scope 01 
Liszt's vision. They include 
pieces rarely heard, some 0 * 
diabolical complexity, and 
one which has never been 
.performed in London at au> 

“Young pianists nowadays 
arc happv with the Bach and 
the Beethoven they fctve 
JcunT. says Wild, “but when 
it comes to foe imaginative 
music of Liszt they have no 
frame of reference. They are 
lost. There is a disturbing tack 
■of poetry in the young genera- 
tion which makes them mca- 
of appreciating^ what 


has always marked the pro- 
nouncements of WfldL who 
enjoys deflating pomposity; 
10 appreciate minimalism in 
music, be says, you must have 
a minimal mind. 

Wild can trace his musical 
ancestry through his teacher 
Janssen to the pianist and 
composer cf Albert, a contem- 
porary of Liszt, and through 
another teacher. Ego® Petri, to 
Busoni, but he would not 
claim this kind of inheritance 
necessarily carries with it ech- 
oes of Liszt’s own playing. It 
. does mean, however, that he 
shares with them - a 19th- 
century attitude towards the 
piano which is unashamedly 
passionate. An audience at a 
concert by Wild is soon made 
aware that he wants the. piano . 
to move, astonish and delight, 
not merely earn intellectual 
approval. _■ With one_ of the 
most virtuosic techniques in 
the world, he. cannot help but 
astonish, but it is Wild’s 
unexpected control of each 
lyrical nuance that makes an . 
audience almost afraid to 
breathe for fear of missing 
something. 

He does not throw himself 
about or make grimaces in foe 
music-ball' tradition of so- 
called “Romantic" playing, 
but directs all his energy into 
his fingers. He is not in favour 
of pianists being gawped at, 
and thinks a recital for. the 
blind should be able to pro- 
duce as much enjoyment as a . 
more conventional concert. 


(father in. the Pittsburgh Steel 
Corporation, mother design- 
ing hats), he began playing at 
foe age of four, and gave his 
first public performance near- 
ly sixty years ago. 

His career since then 
been highly eclectic and has 
included playing gypsy music, 
Gershwin with Toscanini, the 
very first television recital, 
virtually all of Gilbert and 
Sullivan, Kennedy’s inaugural 
celebrations and playing the 
National Anthem before Mrs 
Roosevelt’s speeches. He sees 
nothing to foment in all this. 
The youngsters who go 
straight from competition to 
recording lack that breadth of 
experience which demands 
finding the best in all music. 
“It is easy to learnby memory, 
but difficult to play a piece as 
if you knew it and can place 
foe composer’s energy in it” 

The pianists Wild has most 
admired in his own time are 
Rachmaninov and Moritz Ro- 
senthal, with a special place 
for- Horowitz,' “because he 
made the most out of every- 
thing and wasn't afraid to be 
outrageous — very Lisztian”. 
His own fearlessness has 
brought him extravagant ac- 
claim and carping scoffs. At 
Ids previous concert here in 
1981 a London critic went so 
far as to say he gave “one of 
the most stunning piano 
recitals in foe entire history of 
the Wigmore Hall”.

the PhUharmonia to pair 
Franck's Symphony with 
Faure’s Requiem. The two 
works emeiged at almost foe 
same time in foe same place, 
and they ought to have made a 
neat contrast of foe raging 
with foe restful But any such 
contrast was worn away by the 
irresistible smoofoening of 


The opening of the Franck 
was so slow that the orchestra 
could have been playing 
something else at foe same 
time. Admittedly there were 
beauties one might have 
missed on a quicker ride, like 
foe first wind chord, fresh as 
spring, or foe many shapely, 
long-drawn-out diminuendos 
in the strings. Yet one loses all 
sense of necessary movement 
when the music is laid out 
with this sort of aloof care. Mr 
Giulini seemed to be treating 
Franck as if he were a cousin 
of Bruckner, which only em- 


phasizes his weak points: the 
stop-start structures and the 
square, short themes. There 
was a desperate need for some 
vulgarity. 

I suspect foe cure would 
have had to be different for foe 
Faurt, but here too foe sedate 
tempos, and still more so the 
low dynamic level, muffled all 
meaning. The music was too 
often reduced to quiet churchy 
harmony supporting a concert 
of coughs and bleeps: it was a 
bit like waiting in a crematori- 
um for the departed to arrive. 

As in the Franck, there were 
some incidental benefits. The 
Philharmonia Chorus, in par- 


ticular. need to be congratulat- 
ed for producing such extreme 
pianissimos. giving a not inap- 
propriate impression, some- 
times, of voices heard from a 
long way off. There were also 
some fine sounds from the full 
lower strings of the reduced 
orchestra, though they would 
have been still finer had there 
been Ihe impetus to carry 
them forward into phrases. 
Kathleen Battle in the “Pie 
Jesu” was not helped by the 
tempo, but Andreas Schmidt 
sang quite unwoniedly. and 
nicely without pretension.

Mitsuko Ucfaida began foe 
second five programmes of 
her Mozart piano concerto 
series with foe English Cham- 
ber Orchestra on Sunday night 
with one, I was delighted to 
note, that had never ever 
come my way in concert 
performance before. The C 
major Concerto, K4I5, the 
third of the three Mozart 
wrote soon after he settled in 
Vienna, is chiefly distin- 
guished neither by its first nor 
second movements, but by a 
finale which is among the 
most original inventions of 
even that fertile mind. 


foe less than inspired adagio 
movement. When she came to 
the deservedly familiar A 
major Concerto. K488, her 
way of trading the focus of 
musical interest with the or- 
chestra, of letting a keyboard 
phrase catch its breath as well 
as ours in sudden suspension, 
and of generating a forward 
momentum that also allowed 
freedom of expressive detail, 
were but three aspects of 
sustained delighL 


The performance was 
strong in the pianist's dramat- 
ic but never exaggerated 
pointing of each new and often 
surprising change of musical 
direction, although her bodily 
movements in conducting 
when she was not engaged in 
playing, with her back square- 
ly to the audience, looked 
overdone in relation to the 
orchestra's need. Their rap- 
port was so adept when there 
was no chance for her to give 
cues anyway foal she could 
economise her energies with 
less visible distraction. 


Following foe opening con- 
certo it seemed an elaborate 
exercise in furniture removal

charms of a Konzertstuck in D 
minor by Mendelssohn, origi- 
nally for a trio with piano and 
now arranged by Graham 
Sheen for an instrumental 
septet in support of clarinet

and Julian Farrell took foe 
leading roles with elegant 
virtuosity in a genial ensem- 
ble.

It was nevertheless an alter- 
nately absorbing and exhila- 
rating performance, even 10 
the sudden gleam of claws 
while pussyfooting through 


Henry Herford’s perfor- 
mances of songs by Schuben 
and Webern were a crescendo 
of celebration at the end ’of a 
set of concerts which marked 
foe Nash Ensemble’s contri- 
bution to foe Wigmore Hall’s 
Austin-German Romantic Se- 


ries. His baritone continues to 
broaden in resonance and 
expressive scope; and “Der 
Ganymed" expanded with it. 
warmly breathed out and 
communicated with the same 
refreshingly direct and un- 
mannered generosity which 
characterized his narration of 
“Der Fischer*’. 

He made us see Webern’s 
Five Early Songs very much, 
as it were, from foe other end 
of foe same telescope as 
Strauss's Four Last as terse 
musical transcriptions of the 
expansive sensuousness of the 
Romantic poetry they set. 
With Ian Brown's closely con- 
centrated piano accompani- 
ments, -Somraerabend” was a 
most beautifully controlled 
exercise in restrained ecstasy. 
“Der Tod” a forceful epigram 
of verbal and harmonic ono- 
matopoeia. 

But if these performances 
epitomized foe best of the 
series — that fusion of relaxed 
entertainment and intellectual 
stimulus for which Nash con- 
certs are renowned - then foe 
rest of the evening exemplified 
their increasing tendency to 
polarization. A regrettable 
habit seems to have developed 
of concentrating all foe 
evening’s energy and disci- 
pline into foe rarer ensemble 
work, and merely coasting 
home with foe repertory piece.

lent drooping harmonies and 
sinking cadences, was given an 
alert and sharply detailed 
reading. Michael Collins lifted 
foe clarinet part from its dense 
camouflage to brighten foe 
delicately fluctuating close 
textures of the string writing. 
Schubert’s “Trout”, however, 
failed to bite. This was a drab 
and complacent performance 
of lbe Quintet, giving foe 
impression that, by token oJ 
its very familiarity, the work 
and indeed its audience de- 
served no more than a compe- 
tently musicianly read- 
through.

However distant a goal for the 
church at large, foe ecumeni- 
cal movement is already thriv- 
ing in the field of ecclesiastical 
vestments. No doubt there are 
shops in Belfast where the 
Revd Ian Paisley could find 
himself stripped to his braces 
sharing a mirror with a cardi- 
nal: or mainland establish- 
ments where rabbis queue up 
behind Bradford mullahs, j 

Such is the inspired setting 
of Elisabeth Bond's play, 
which follows an eventful 
week's trading in the non- 
sectarian premises of a Lanca- 
shire clerical outfitters. The 
set (by Alice Purcell) is; a 
functional combination of 
shop-floor and office with, a 
basement for storing commu- 
nion wine and brewing tea. 
What makes it extraordinary 
is the merchandise: three vast 
racks of glowing ecclesiastical 
finery which communicate a 
sense of backstage glamour 
and have the effect of convert- 
ing costume into dfeor. . 

This is the domain of foe 
hard-pressed Mr Ferris (Ian 
Blower) and his eager young 
assistant Geoffrey (Stefan 
Escreet). Barely are foe blinds 
raised on the monastic win- 
dows than foe first rabbi is In 
- returning 500 school blazers 
whose buttons have unfortu- 
nately been attached in stitch- 
ing that forms a cross. He is 
followed by a monsignor who 
has to refer every sartorial 
decision to a batlleaxe house- 
keeper, and a preening Angli- 
can who gives young Geoffrey 
a hard time while his employ- 
er is out delivering the re- 
stitched blazers. 

It ought to be great fun. 
Miss Bond knows all about 
such garments, and the respec- 
tive qualities of cotton and 
polyester cassocks. Her clerics 
are sharply characterized and 
full of surprises, as with foe 
appearance of a nigged boy 
with climbing boots swinging 
from his rucksack whom Fer- 
ris obsequiously addresses as 
"Father” 

The comedy, however, does 
not get a free run. For one 
thing. Miss Bond is slow to 
establish the main situation: 
that the bones of a seventh- 
century saint have been dis- 
covered in a Muslim com- 
munity centre, and that all the 
frantic clerical dressing-up is 
in preparation for a grand 
competitive procession to lay 
foe relics to rest 

More damagingly. she also 
wants to draw a contrast 
between faith and the orga- 
nized church; and instead of' 
expressing this through comic 
incident she abruptly switches 
the laughs off when she has 
something serious to say — as 
when the archdeacon and 
poor henpecked Monsignor 
Byrne (Jon Strickland) dress 
up for a sectarian ding-dong; 
or where Geoffrey is finally 
left searching for his own soul 
in the saint’s dust 

Given its rich potential and 
performances, such as Mr 
Blower's dyspeptic proprietor, 
which break through Jonathan 
Pethcrbridge’s under-ener- 
gized production, there should 
be a future for a ughtened-up 
version of the play.

Carrington’s banana skin 


THE TIMES 
DIARY 


All part of 
the service 

British Rail consultant William 
Camp earned his money yesterday 
when he dragged a would-be 
suicide case from the path of an 
approaching train at Euslon. 
Camp, former adviser to Harold 
Wilson, was eD route to meet me 
for lunch at the Garrick Club 
when he spotted the man sitting 
on the track. Although hearing 
-that horrible rumbling of an 
oncoming train in the tunnel", he 
threw himself on to the track and 
dragged the man to safety. Camp 
said: “We just spotted him sitting 
on the line rubbing the rails with 
his hands eccentrically. He was 
very deep in thought If he had 
been on the next line we would all 
have gone up in a puff of blue 
smoke. We were lucky..." 

Figurehead 

The junior common room at St 
Hugh's. Oxford, has voted to 
exclude strangers from its meet- 
ings — effectively banning the fa- 
ther of maths prodigy Ruth 
Lawrence. Subjected to right-wing 
harangues from the infant 
phenomenon, undergraduates 
who originally invited Harry Law- 
rence have since tired of his 
whispered prompts and head- 
shaking. “1 didn't attempt to be 
invisible, but they didn't need to 
pass a motion. They could just 
have asked me to stay clear," he 
says. Meanwhile, only three JCR 
meetings remain before Ruth aged 
14. graduates to the company of 
the port sippers of the middle 
common room. 

Haunted houses 

The spectre of Michael Heseltine 
continues to haunt the hapless 
Leon Brit tan who. having hung 
on, now at last faces the imminent 
bcK>t from his ministerial rooms in 
the Commons. He is presently at 
loggerheads with Tarzan's old 
department over plans to upgrade 
RAF Leeming in Yorkshire. Sev- 
eral of Brittan's constituents have 
complained that the value of their 
property will crash when Leeming 
becomes a Tornado F2 base next 
year. Offers to buy the houses at 
“deflated" prices with double 
glazing to keep out the noise have 
been rejected as derisory' by some 
locals. But he should find a more 
sympathetic ear in Lord Tref- 
game. “We have made offers to 
buy 21 of the homes and will be 
providing sound insulation." said 
an MoD spokesman. 

Beastly luck 

Michael Lingens. the former 
chairman of the Bow Group who 
was branded as “crackers” by Mrs 
Thatcher after he accused the 
Tories of a cop-out. seems to be 
back in favour. Or is he? The party 
last night selected a prickly little 
constituency for him to fight: the 
1 4.000-majority Derbyshire seat of 
the Beast of Bolsover. Dennis 
Skinner.

Tiny Rowland is unlikely to 
regard the expected American bid 
for Lonrho as the unacceptable

the recent annual report, he owns 
47.250.000 shares in the com- 
pany, almost three million bought 
in the last financial year. With the 
market expecting an offer of more 
than £3 a share, that should bring 
him a cool £150 million. He also 
has an option od a further 640.000 
shares and an undisclosed stake in 
a company which owns just under 
30 million Lonrho shares. Not bad 
for the son of a Hamburg mer-

Art royal 


Princess Michael of Kent may be 
the next royal to be involved in a 
government investigation through 
her job as an an dealer with the 
MacConnai-Masan gallery (see 
yesterday’s Drary). As a director of 
the gallery, the Princess is auto- 
matically a member of the British 
Antique Dealers Association, 
which is now providing a Depart- 
ment of Trade and Industry 
inquiry into art dealers’ auction 
rings with detailed information 
gleaned from members. When it 
was launched, there were fears that 
dealers and auctioneers would 
collude, and it was suggested that a 
Commons select committee be set 
up to call experts individually. 
Yesterday, a government spokes- 
man said the investigation bad 
prompted further inquiries by the 
government into, among other 
things, buyers' commissions and 
auctioneers' attribution of art 
works. 

PHS 


Brussels 

Lord Carrington is facing his 
biggest political test since he 
resigned as Foreign Secretary over 
the Falklands crisis and became 
Naio secretary-general nearly two 
years ago as. Tomorrow, if the 
opinion polls are right, a majority 
of Spanish voters will ignore the 
advice of their prime minister, 
Felipe Gonzalez, and vote to take 
Spain out of Nato only four years 
after it joined. Carrington faces 
this prospect noth a combination 
of concern for Spain's western 
identity and Alliance cohesion 
and the kind of' languorous 
aplomb which is the hallmark of 
his political style. 

Carrington's title, his debonair 
charm and his acres in the 
Chiltems made him an object of 
some suspicion to American of- 
ficials when he first moved into 
the Nato hot seat in Brussels. 
Alexander Haig, then Secretary of 
State, is supposed to have called 
him duplicitous. But he has 
confirmed what Carrington- 
watchers knew from his career as 
Defence and then Foreign Sec- 
retary: behind the ironic and 
agreeable air. and the occasional 
attack of diplomatic deafness, lies 
a gimlet sharp mind and highly 
developed political antennae. 

Nato. he emphasizes, is not just 
a military organization but also 
has a role in East-West relations. 
Now that the superpowers are 
talking again, “people are begin- 
ning to realize that Nato is also a 
political alliance. When I arrived 
here there was no contact between 
East and West, and no suggestion 
of a summit." 

So far Carrington has proved 
adept at keeping together a politi- 
cal and military alliance of 16 
disparate nations from Norway to 
Greece. He observes that the 
problem of Nato cohesion is not 
new, but when a split appeared 
likely over European attitudes to 
Star Wars, Carrington displayed 
his difference of style by having all 


Richard Owen talks to Nato 7 s chief about 
tomorrow^ Spanish refereadnm and the 
prospects for a Reagan-Gorbachov summit 


the Western defence ministers 
round for dinner and engineering 
a compromise over the claret 
Spanish withdrawal would up- 
set this smooth performance: 
Carrington himself speaks of a 
"political setback”. Two months 
ago his astute suggestion in Ma- 
drid that Spain could enjoy “a la 
carte ” Nato membership, like 
France, by belonging to Nato’s 
political arm but not its military 
structure appeared to have helped 
Gonzalez to swing the reluctant 
Spaniards behind Nato. Both 
Carrington and Gonzalez stress 
the logical connection between 
Spain’s membership of Nato and 
its entry into the EEC. All this may 
now be jeopardized by right-wing 
tactical voting against Gonzalez 
and the Socialists. Carrington 
speaks with undisguised irritation 
of a possible “unrepresentative 
result." 

On the other hand he sees the 
Spanish problem in the context of 
36 successful years of Western and 
Nato survival. The alliance can 
manage without Spain, although it 



would rather not If the Spanish 
think they can rely on the EEC for 
security they are deluding them- 
selves. “Partly because of Irish 
membership the EEC doesn’t talk 
about security at all. This is a gap 
which Nato fills for Europe." 

The Spanish vote therefore 
comes at a time when Nalo and 
Carrington are in confident mood. 
He detects a “total turnaround" in 
the Easi-West atmosphere since he 
arrived at Nato and is not 
dismayed by the recent harsh 
Reagan-Gorbachov exchanges or 
by speculation that the next 
superpower summit is in danger. 
“There is no doubt the Americans 
want a summit, and there ts no 
doubt that the general feeling, not 
just in the West but in the non- 
aligned and Third World, is that it 
is a good thing for the leaders to 
talk. In the light of this is the 
Soviet Union going to say no? 
Frankly I rather doubt it.” They 
saw what happened last lime when 
they walked out at Geneva. They 
were the losers." 

Carrington’s main regret is that 

There is no doubt the 
Americans want a 
summit, and there is no 
doubt that the general 
feeling, not just in the 
West but in the non- 
aligned and Third 
World, is that it is a 
good thing for the 
leaders to talk. In the 
light of this is the Soviet 
Union going to say no? I 
rather donbt it 9 


there has been a decline in the 
bipartisan approach to defence in 
many European nations over the 
past 10 years, with left-wing 
parties favouring unilateralism 
and non-nuclear defences. Bin be 
emphasizes that Nato countries, 
are developing conventional 
forces as weU as nuclear arsenals 
within the. limits of ava ilable 
resources. As for congressional 
resentment in Washington over 
ihe burden of defending Europe, 
Carrington points out that when 
he was Defence Secretary 16 years , 
ago similar noises were coming 
from the - isolationist Senator 
Mansfield. Senator Nunn, the 
current proponent of reduced 
American commitments, is by 
contrast pro-Nato. 

Carrington firmly believes in 
the value of arms co-operation 1 
( pace the Westland affair), both 
between Europeans and between 
Europe and the US. He describes 
the lack, of standardization, with 
Europeans developing identical 
weapons, as ludicrous. But arms 
co-operation must be transatlantic 
and not just inter-European, 
“otherwise you are going to find 
the Americans looking down their 
noses and wondering what the bell 
is going on." 

Are American-European ten- 
sions exaggerated? “1 think so. 
The alliance does not exist with- 
out the Americans. Obviously the 
Europeans have to watch very 
carefully that their relationship 
with the Americans is a good one. 
That is quite a large part of the job 
of secretary-general. That is what I 
am here for". ' 

Does he have any regrets at 
leaving British politics for Brus- 
sels? Carrington pauses, then 
chuckles. “You mean, do I miss 
the squabbles of party politics? 
WelL sometimes. But there is a lot 
to do here. Avoiding of war and 1 
creating a more stable relationship 
between the superpowers is much 
more important Peace is not the 
least of the social services." 


Dennis Kavanagh assesses the change in attitude to Conservative 


policies and suggests that a major about-turn is on the way 

Thatcherism’s last gasp? 


The many difficulties besetting 
Mrs Thatcher's government have 
begged the question of the future 
of “Thatcherism". Enemies and 
friends alike have claimed that the 
government's changes of course 
are evidence that a distinctive 
sty le is on its way out. 

Die difficulties of analysing the 
Thatcher record are partly caused 
by the inflationary rhetoric which 
surrounds her and the exaggerated 
perception of the coherence and 
consistency of speeches and poli- 
cies. The Thatcher Phenomenon 
(BBC Publications. £8.95), by 
Hugo Young and Anne Sloman, is 
a welcome publication in book 
form of Radio 4’s documentaries. 
“Phenomenon" is a fair descrip- 
tion: no other prime minister this 
century has given his name to a 
style and doctrine. 

The term Thatcherism is often 
used in three different contexts. 
Die first is her beliefs and no- 
nonsense style (“can't see an 
institution without hitting it with 
her handbag"). Her beliefs en- 
compass dismissing the “pro- 
gressive". “permissive" consensus 
and the public sector as essentially 
parasitic on the wealth creators; 
the advocacy of hard work, thrift, 
self-reliance, free markets and 
people not looking to the nanny 
stale to solve problems. Has there 
ever been a British leader who so 
regarded politics as a suitable 
arena for the expression of per- 
sonal beliefs?. 

Bui Thatcherism is also a set of 
policies designed to realize the 
vision of a strong state (law and 
order, defence and stable cur- 
rency) and a free economy (cutting 
state spending and taxes, and 
privatization). The record here is 
less convincing. Both taxes and 
spending are higher as a share of 
gdp than in 1979. when Britain 
was allegedly “over-taxed" and 
spending was out of control. The 
party which promised to roll back 
government has been ruthlessly 
centralist vis-a-vis local govern- 
ment. higher and state education, 
and the health service. The goals 
of containing public spending and 
improving efficiency have tri- 
umphed over local choice and 
pluralism. 

Worldwide fall 
in support 
, for the left 

Thirdly, Thatcherism was also 
born of a reaction to high infla- 
tion, trade union power and 
general unease about ungovern- 
ability in the mid-1970s. But this 
mood was not confined to Britain. 
In many countries the economic 
recession and slow growth under- 
mined support for the welfare 
consensus: there was a backlash 
among skilled workers against 
high taxes to pay for the social 
wage and redistributive pro- 
grammes. The mood created diffi- 
culties for the political left, as 
voters turned away from parties 
associated with high spending and 
taxation. 

In Britain. Scandinavia, West 
Germany and the USA there has 
been a steady reduction in work- 
ing-class support for parties of the 
left. It was Reagan (but could have 
been Carter. Callaghan or 
Thatcher) who said: “Govern- 
ment is not the solution to our 
problems. Government is the 
problem." 

Consensual, moderate and mid- 
dle of the road were the watch- 
words of post-war Conservatives. 
They have now been expunged 
from the vocabulary of political 
virtues. Above all Mrs Thatcher 



has given voice to many grassroot 
Tory views about the unions, law 
and o/tier, “scroungers” and cap- 
ital punishment 

An insight into what might 
remain of her achievements in a 
post-Thatcher era should start 
with the Conservative Party. She 
has effectively reshaped its leader- 
ship strata for the 1990s, but not 
necessarily in her own image. At 
present only five of the 2 1 Cabinet 
members do not owe a first 
preferment to her. Yet the Cabinet 
today also has a distinctly non- 
Thatcherite look. The inter- 
ventionists and spokesmen for 
One Nation values are perhaps 
better placed than ever. The 
Westland’ affair led many com- 
mentators and Conservative MPs 
to assume that the Thatcherite era 
was drawing to a close. 

The balance sheet of the suc- 
cesses and failures of Thatcherism 
will be apparent only after she 
goes. If there is a new common 
ground then a future Labour 
government will adapt to it just as 
the Conservatives accepted Lab- 
our's post- 1945 policies and 


American Republicans accepted 
the New Deal. Her government 
does seem to have shifted the 
ground on such issues as trade 
union balance, sales of council 
houses to tenants, privatization of 
a number of state firms and 
services and heightened the issue 
of law and order. 

In these areas the ground has 
probably moved to the right. 
Already Labour has calculated 
that there are few votes to be 
gained from returning to the status 
quo ante. Indeed, Labour may 
have been relieved of some elec- 
toral millstones that have held it 
back in the past. It has to come to 
terms with an electorate which is 
increasingly middle-class and less 
involved in manufacturing, trade 
unions, public sector employment 
and council housing. The govern- 
ment has weakened many of the 
structural bases of Labour voting. 

It is also likely that no sub- 
sequent government of any party 
will relax the post- 1979 central 
controls over local authorities. 
Since 1945 local-central relations 
have moved in one direction only. 
Each party when in office has been

Lord Hailsham (in opposition) 
called the elective dictatorship 
than to curb iL 

Finally, the vocabulary of the 
Labour leadership has also been 
changed. Profits, enterprise, prod- 
uction and value for public money 
are in favour. Any reflation which 
threatens inflation is out. Re- 
nationaLization is not “a high 
priority". After 1983 few believe 
that there is a silent majority for 
sociahsm. Neil Kinnock increas- 
ingly combines the approach of 
Gaitskefl to his left wing with that 
of Harold Wilson to a non- 
sorialisl salaried electorate. 

Mrs Thatcher in 1983 over- j 
turned two rules of post-war 
British politics and of Labour’s 
operational code: that a govern- 
ment coaid not be re-elected with 
record unemployment and that it 
could not govern without the co- 
operation of the major economic 
interests. 

Complex mood 
bridging the 
political divide 

The Thatcher goal of creating an 
enterprise economy and a self- 
reliant society, however, does not 
seem to have impressed itself on 
voters. Public opinion has actually 
moved against her on whether 
voters prefer tax cuts (and reduced 
government spending on services) 
or an increase in both. In 1979 
Gallup found that a third of voters 
preferred over , a third an increase 
in both, and a quarter wanted 
things left as they were. Since 1979 
there has been a steady reduction 
in the number of tax cutters and 
an increase in government spend- 
ers, even if it means higher taxes. 

In 1985, the latter outscored the 
former 59 per cent to 16 per cent. 
The accompanying table shows a 
further swing- away from 
Thatcherite ideas towards" caring 
and consensus government in 
1985. Thatcher government may 
be creating an equal and opposite 
reaction to itself a legacy of two 
terms of office may well be the 
promotion of values die has 
denigrated. 

The mood is therefore complex 
and runs across the old left-right 
political divide. There is approval 
for the free market as a means of 
wealth creation, and many of the - 
economic policies this might en- 
tail But there is also wide support 
for stale or collective provision for 
welfare, even over tax cuts. 
Thatcherism has been half 
successful, repudiating Keynes but 
not Beveridge. In Scandinavia the 
reaction has been similar; ap- 
proval for a state role in welfare 
but not for state intervention and 
controls in the economy. - 
There is little doubt that the 
three major parties will be aware 
of this mood at the next election. 
But will Mrs Thatcher be the best 
leader to preserve the new ground? 
She is a leader , who thrives on 
adversary politics. Her particular 
qualities have paid rich dividends 
when launched against unpopular 
targets, a Galtieri or a ScargilL The 
support she may win in a crisis, 
where minor disagreements are. 
buried in the face of a much 
disliked enemy, can evaporate in 
everyday disputes where her views 
must compete with other, accept- ! 
able views, instead of having a 
successor who carries on her work 
she nuy find that her retirement is 
a sign that public opinion and 
politicians are again seeking a * 
conciliatory and emollient leader.

The last Labour Party con- 
ference showed that it is not 
obedience bn! disobedience which 
defines the egalitarian idea of 
citizenship. Labour is encouraged 
by the new jurisprudence, which 
seeks constantly to augment the 
store of rights (including the “right 
lq ’ civil disobedience”) -while 
diminishing the fond of duties. In 
jurisprudence or elsewhere, egal- 
itarianism inflates the moral cur- 
rency, and erodes the capital of 
dvil virtue. 

In this way, the lan&rage of 
rigits has takes on a new xnean- 
mg. Instead of guaranteeing those 
freedoms whereby the competent 


lesson offered by the new school of oould govern, it now tips the 


jurisprudence, -and to invent as 
many rights a$- the -left-wing 
conscience deemed necessary far 
the defence of iiiegality.TTus was 
just one instance of the tricks 
which the language of “rights" has 
now been taught to play. Consider 
also the “righlto work". 

For the traditional liberal this 
denotes the freedom to go about 
one's business undisturbed. Such 
a right is of course threatened by 
violent picketing For the leftist a 
freedom that can be exercised only 
by the fortunate is a freedom 
which violates equality. Such, a 
freedom must therefore not be 
given the status of a right. 

Instead a new “right to work" 
has been invented: not a liberty, 
this time, but a claim. This right is 
honoured not by leaving its holder 


balance per manen tly against all 
forms of . human excellence, and 
against every species of elite. ~ 

At the same time, it becomes the 
sotute of a new corruption. No 
duties are imposed on the man 
whose “right to work” is to be 
inflicted on tire public purse. Even 
tire duty of -obedience is. set aside 
by tire champions of tire underdog 
And this steady erosion of legality, 
responsibility and public spirit is 
effected in the name of thai-old 
chimera — the Rights of Man. '

1 was much, impressed the other 
night when Steve Race introduced 
a repeat of a jazz concert first 
shown in 1964 on BBC2. The 
leader of the group, tenor saxo- 
phonist Coleman Hawkins, had 
been a little “unwell" on that 
occasion. Race remembered. 

What impressed me — apart 
from the feet that the Scotch 
didn’t seem to have had too much 
effect on Hawldns, - who kept 
upright and played pretty well — 
was that Steve Race should have 
mentioned the fact at all. It is far 
from unknown for jazz music ian* 
to go on stage drunk, or even for 
them to become drunk on stage, 
having entered sober, but it is very 
rare for anyone to mention it, even 
22 years later, in print orin vision. 

I reviewed jazz for The Times 
for 10 years in the. 196% and 
1970s, and there were many times 
when-tbe man I was reviewing was 
somewhat the worse for wear. The - 
usual symptoms were a - glassy 
smile, a look of deep concentra- 
tion and an inability to locate the 
microphone. As soon as be started 
playing, things were usually all 
right, as the old reflexes took over, 
but sometimes things were all 
wrong and he was barely capable 
of playing more than a few notes. 

1 kept being . reminded of Eddie 
Condon’s remark; “I arrived at the 
dub in a state of perfect equilib- 
rium: half man, half whisky ' 

My problem was how to suggest 
what had happened without act- 
ually suggestingit, as it were, and I 
don't think £ ever solved it 
satisfactorily. I once asked the 
then arts editor, John Lawrehce, if 
it were in order to mention such a 
thing in print ’ . • 

"Theoretically, yes," be told 
me. “If you say that X gets drank 
when he plays* then that is libel for 
it suggests a permanent state of 
affairs. If you say .that X happened 
to be drunk last night, then it is not 
libellous, as it is. reporting a real 
event That is the theory. In .. 
practice, you had better not men- 
’ tion it" f didn’t. Mostjazzevenls, 
of course, are. wonderfully sober 
andabsiemiouS affairs. 

I sometimes thought -of writing 


in a review that X was totally 
sober last night, but this too might 
have Hbeflous overtones. 

What is undeniably true is thru 
many famous jazz musicians have 
become legends not just for their 
playing, but also for their rip- 
roanng behaviour, . from .. But 
Beiderbecke through to Charlie 
Parker, yet you will search reviews

1 1' ^ ^Oh tfie face of it, the meetings 

lr of the European CornmnnitYs 

finance and foreign ministers 
which began yesterday will be 
occupied in routine business. 
No storms of the kind which 
threatened the cohesion of the 
Community before Fontaine- 
bleau are -in sight Nor wfli 
there be tfiebad feeling which 
eflipled last year over the way. 
to proceed to greater unity. ■ ■ ; 

1 The principal task of the 
economic committee is to 
begin the application to the 
1987 Budget of the procedure 
which finance ministers lay 
vown global sums for blocks of 
expMiditure. That, of course, is 
of significance to agricultural 
ministers since it has also been 
agreed that spending on farm 
support should grow less fest 
than the Community's, "own 
resources" revenue. In other 
words, it must decrease as a 
■proportion of total Commu- 
nity expenditure. 

_ On the foreign * ministers’ 
agenda budget discipline will 
also loom large. At least it 
ought to. Their need is not so 
much to consider the figures as 
ip. discuss the entire relation- 
’t&P between budget and farm 
support. It -once again, despite 
^Fontainebleau, threatens a cri- 
sis. 

: : It is the hidden rather than 
die nominal agenda that mat- 
ters. The value of the dollar 
has fallen in relation to the ecu 
(the European unit of ac- 
count); it is now clear that the 
Community will reach the 
ceiling of its own resources 
sooner than expected. 

-.. At Fontainebleau, the ceil- 
jgg was raised to 1.4 per cent 
(of a notional VAT proceeds 
scale ). This was expected to last 
until at least 1988. But by 1987, 
perhaps by the end of this year.

it will no longer suffice to 
cover spending. 

Some progress has been 
njade to bring down the level 
of agricultural support. The 
Co mmi ssion has produced a 
package tough enough to. pro- 
voke loud protests from fann- 
ers throughout the 
Community, _ including Brit- 
ain. 

Germany Is a. much weaker 
■ reed than: Britain in the matter 
of farm support Although the 
Germans pay more for EEC 
farm support than any other 
mernbarvand pay lip-service to 
cutting it, their own small 
fanners benefit massively.. ' 
Theirs is an interest the Fed- 
eral Govemement heeds for 
social reasons.. But Britain 
mirrors ■ the .same sort of 
' problem. So does France, the 
traditional defender of sub- 
sidy, which how finds itself a 
substantial net contributor to 
EEC farm payments. 

The fundamental question 
is whether all that can be done 
is to reduce the level of support 
within the existing system, or 
whether the system can be 
changed. Proposals tanta- 
mount to such radical change 
have come from the Commis- 
sion One. is for phasing out 
altogether ..the intervention- 
buying of bee£ except in an 
emergency. It has provoked 
much protest and is hardly 
likely to be practical politics. 
In any case, it does not touch . 
the worst example of the price- 
support dile mma — cereals. 

Cereal farmers - are 
overwhelmingly the largest 
recipients of farm support 
Their support costs more as 
the felling dollar brings Euro- 
pean grain into closer com- 
petition with the transatlantic

policy just delivered in Lon- 
don by the American Eco- 
nomic Under-Secretary, Mr 
Wallis, has something ota pot- 
and-kettle look about it in 
view of the Americans’ own 
supportand surpluses system.) 

The truth is that nobody is 
thinking of total reform. No 
member state dissents from 
the principle that small farm- 
ers should be kept in business 
for social reasons, even though 
in practice they only scratch 
along under a system where 
the big fanners make the big 
profits. 

One solution might be to let 
member states subsidize their 
own small farms if they wish. 
But “renationalization of the 
CAP” is unacceptable: it goes 
gainst the principle of integra- 
tion. 

In practice, therefore, the 
only land of reform envisaged 
is pragmatic price reductions 
which fall on large and small 
farmers alike, and which the 
Germans resist The Commu- 
nity is returning to its old 
quandary. Unless it again in- 
creases the “own resources 
contributions it will not bal- 
ance its budgets. But increas- 
ing resources again is 
politically impossible; what is 
the point, if it ends in still 
bigger stockpiles and more 
public rage? 

Grain support levels have 
been reduced, but with tech- 
nical advance, the yield still 
increases. While 70 percent of 
Europe’s budget goes on agri- 
culture, agriculture supports 
only 10 per cent of Europe's 
population. Throughout the 
world there is growing produc- 
tion and a shirking market 
Mach more basic thinking is 
needed than any that will arise 
from current agendas.

orderliness is, it might be 
thought a time for reformers 
of the criminal .justice system 
to lie tow. Attention naturally 
focuses on the police, and their 
-work of detection. Soon the 
public will turn to ministers. 

. They will ask for action and 
the mettle of the Home Sec- 
retary will be tested. 

- He will have immediate 
questions to answer, for exam- 
ple about the unsatisfactory 
state of the law governing the 
"identification of victims of 
rape before charges . are 
brought. He win, if be is 
honest, dispense with easy 
rhetoric about dramatic ac- 
tion. In coping with crime 
there are no instant recipes. 
Levels of crime will respond, 
eventually, to policing re- 
sources, sentences, the penal 
regime and to reform of ju- 
' dirial procedure. Effecting that 
Wform cannot nor has Mr 
Hurd shown any evidence of 
..wanting to, ignore ambiguity 
.In public opinion or ride 
roughshod- over rights and 
.liberties. 

.. Take one of the planks of 
last week’s White Paper on 
^Criminal justice, the future of 
trial by jury. The institution is 
'.too popular. Its popularity 
with the public makes the 
■ politics of reform difficult. Yet 
its popularity with defendants 
: makes reform a growing neces- 
rf^ty. More and more defen- 
' dants are opting for trial by 


: „ The Government has ap- 
pointed .moire judges and 
Opened new courts. But pres- 
sure of business in the Crown 
Court has increased. There are 
still tong delays before a case is 
brought to triaL In 1984 
defendants pleading not guilty 
in Englaihd and Wales had to 
wait on average almost : five 
months between committal 
and. triaL Some waited in 
prison for months. 

Delays of this kind put an 
unacceptable strain on defen- 
dants and their fam ili es. Injus- 
tice results when cases become 
stale, memories fade, and wit- 
nesses become unavailable. 
Since the burden of proof lies 
with the accuser, this works in 
the accused’s favour. So the 
acquittal rate in contested 
cases in the Crown Court is 
twice as high as in the 
magistrates’ oourts. 

The White Paper proposed 
reducing the number of of- 
fences carrying a right to 
choose jury triaL The majority 
of those convicted of the 
offences of common assault, 
driving while disqualified, and 
taking a motor vehicle without 
the owners' consent do not in 
fact receive sentences beyond 
the magistrates' powers. There 
are already comparable of- 
fences, some of them more 
serious, which can only be 
tried summarily. 

So far the argument is 
sound. But the Government 


wants to go further. It proposes 
: abolishing right of jury trial for 
offences of dishonesty involv- 
ing property of less than a 
specified value. Ten years ago 
the James Committee made a 
similar suggestion. Parliament 
rightly rejected it 

The stigma which attaches 
to theft is so great that jury 
trial should be available, ir- 
respective of the value of the 
property. Value is not nec- 
essarily a reliable indicator of 
the seriousness of the offence. 
The Government says it would 
give magistrates discretion to 
commit a case to trial if they 
were satisfied that the offence 
was one of unusual gravity, 
even if the property involved 
was of small value. The Gov- 
ernment is also considering 
malting provision for jury trial 
to remain available in excep- 
tional circumstances — to 
defendants with no previous 
convictions for dishonesty. 

Such proposals cannot be 
accepted. People must be al- 
lowed to live down their past. 
There cannot be two classes of 
citizens entitled to different, 
modes of trial for the same 
offence of dishonesty. An ac- 
cused person’s previous record 
is normally inadmissible for 
the purpose of determining 
guilt- It should remain in- 
admissible for determing the 
way in which his guilt is to be 
established. The presumption 
of innocence should apply 
equally for both purposes. In 
all these small cases of dis- 
honesty the accused must keep

With the death at the weekend 
. of "former Scnaior Jacob Javits 
'American politics tost a stal- 
’ wart. His passing, taken with 
. the departure from the Senate 
■of Charles Mathias of Mary- 
: land, confirm the permanency 
of an intra-party shift The 


come the reputation mongers 
may point the other way. 

For Javits helped turn the 
Senate Foreign Relations 
Committee into an adjunct 
maker of- American foreign 
policy. As such he was respon- 
sible for the diminished stand- 


. Hast Coast wing of the Repub- fog of his country during the 


; i*Jans is no more. 

->* Javits was best described as 
i pro-business liberal — hewas 
*proudlv the “Senator from 
.Wall Street". In his approach 
jo foreign policy, his New 
York background and his open 

• demeanour he stood within an 

• older tradition in his party, 

• one associated for ever with 
' former Vice-President Nelson 
''itockefflller. In modern 
Jftepubiican demonology no 
. ta is quite as warty. 

r ■ to the way of things, Rocke- 
..felfer will in time get ins 
'..revisionist. For Javits, how- 
‘iCver, it may be different. His 
•■ courage in bis last years as a 
victim of a debilitating disease 
raised his stock, la years to 


1970s when, we are now so 
clearly aware, the Soviet 
Union engaged in a chapter of 
international adventurism and 
armaments build-up. It is now 
much less clear that the reduc- 
tion of the President’s powers 
of military command en- 
gineered by the senator was 
either effective, as a barrier to 
covert executive action, or 
useful in the prosecution of 
.American interests in South 
East Asia or anywhere else. 

The end of the Rockefeller 
Republicans encapsulate, for 
some observers, the victory 
within the party, of Presidoit 
Reagan’s beliefs-. Indeed in 
recent politicking the only 
question for Republican 


contenders was who would 
inherit the President’s ideo- 
■ logical mantle. The nuances of 
that quest have seemed to be 
the only thing that distin- 
guished Vice-President Bush 
and (a conservative trying to 
build a populist constituency) 
Representative Jack Kemp. 

But the passage of Javits’ 
generation should not be read 
too easily as a rightwards shift. 
The Vice-President has still to 
shake off a patina of Eastern 
liberal diffidence. Senator 
Dole and Senator Baker, 
representing new political re- 
gions, are difficult to place, 
perhaps avatars of a new 
heterodoxy. Out of the conser- 
vative far west, home of the 
President comes Senator Lax- 
alt of Nevada. 

The soul of the GOP is up 
for grabs: Senator Javits’ pass- 
ing shows the absence in the 
party’s counsels of an older 
brand of liberalism. But it 
gives scant guide to where the 
Republicans are heading. 


LETTERS TO THE EDITOR 


Case for outside interest in BL 

From Mr Michael Grylls. MP for terms of wealth 


Surrey North West (Conservative) 
Sir, It seems that some of the 
business decisions needing to be 
taken over the future of BL are 
being clouded by emotion. To 
allow one’s heart to rule one’s 
head is a luxury that the prudent 
investor cannot afford. 

HM Government is the major 
investor (99.7 per cent) in BL pic. 
a quoted company; the rest of the 
shares are held by 60,000 long- 
suffering private investors. The 
company faces considerable prob- 
lems. 

First is Leyland Trucks- There is 
some 40 per cent unused capacity 
m Europe, resulting in losses of 
£400 million a year. Dearly there 
has to be rationalisation. Inter- 
national mergers or collaboration 
are increasingly seen as sensible 
solutions. 

GM, with 60 years of operating 
efficiently and responsibly in the 
UK, is one obvious buyer of the 
truck division. Land-Rover, with 
the financial backing available, 
should prove a suitable candidate 
for a management buy-out 

The other problem is the Aus- 
tin- Rover group (ARG). There is 
little doubt that almost any owner 
would be better than Govern- 
ment Government is no longer a 
good owner. For governments are 
made up of politicians and Civil 
Servants, generally with a lack of 
understanding of industry's needs, 
but with an insatiable appetite for 
day-to-day interference in the 
firms they control. Any chairman 
of a State-owned industry will 
confirm this. 

Nowadays, companies have to 
invest large sums in new technol- 
ogy if they are to compete. If they 
fail to make the investment they 
fall behind and Britain suffers in 


creation and 
employment. But governments 
have many calls on the taxpayers' 
cash — more pressing than capital 
equipment for companies — for 
example, investment ip schools 
and hospitals. That is why Gov- 
ernment is not a good owner. All 
companies must be free to have 
access to the capital markets to 
fund their crucial investment in 
new technology. 

Emotional hand-wringing about 
keeping ARG "’British” is unhelp- 
ful. Despite the valiant efforts of 
the current managers it is still 
unlikely that long term ARG ran 
prosper alone. Already Austin- 
Rover is de facto an Anglo- 
Japanese firm through its 
successful collaboration with 
Honda. 

I saw evidence of this for myself 
the other day when I visited the 
Honda plant in Japan. Listening 
to the chairman and managers it 
was dear that collaboration is seen _ 
by Honda as a long-term arrange- " 
menz to the benefit of both 
companies. 

I understand the feeling about 
keeping our industry British. 
However, the reality is that multi- 
national collaboration and owner- 
ship is the likely shape for. any 
serious players in the automobile 
industry of the future. Personally, 
if I were a worker in Cowley, 
Longbridge or Leyland. I would 
feel more secure if the shares in 
my company were owned by GM, 
Honda, or British shareholders 
rather than by HM Government.

Moves to Rome 

From Mrs W. Allan Griffiths 
Sir, There is some ground for the 
concern in the Church of England 
reported on the front page of The 
Times (March 4). Five motions 
emanating from the reports of the 
Anglican-Roman Catholic inter- 
national Commission are cur- 
rently circulating the Church of 
England's Diocesan and Deanery 
Synods, having been passed to 
(hem for debate by the General 
Synod. 

The five motions are obscure, 
complex in form and contain very 
lengthy references, by means of 
page numbers, to two even more 
wordy documents not, in most 
cases, in the possession of mem- 
bers of Deanery and Diocesan 
Synods. The motions cannot be 
amended, but only accepted or 
rejected. 

There is also lack of informa- 
tion about the use to which these 


resolutions are to be put, thus 
raising the question whether such 
ill-prepared motions and dis- 
cussions are to be used to give the 
impression that they are an in- 
formed response by representative 
members of the Church of En- 
gland to the effect that the Church 
of England should start taking 
concrete steps to reconciliation 
with the Church of Rome. 

The report Faith in the City, 
recently debated at the February 
General Synod, made no fewer 
than 23 “recommendations for 
action by the Government and 
Nation." Is it not time that the 
Church of England also applied its 
critical faculties to the conduct of 
its own business?

Law centres at risk 

From Cardinal Hume and others 
Sir, Last year 10 million people 
sought help from their local advice 
centre. This year, many will find 
they have nowhere to turn to, as 
Britain's 2,000 or so independent 
advice and law centres face an 
unprecedented threat to their fu- 
ture. For many years advice and 
law centres have been funded 
inadequately, with seven govern- 
ment departments, various local 
authority committees and some 
charitable trusts all providing 
some, but never enough, money. 

Despite repealed assurances to 
the contrary from central govern- 
ment, the abolition of the metro- 
politan county councils and the 
GLC this month will mean the 
closure of many centres and the 
loss of skilled workers in others. 
Rate limitation and changes in 
urban programme policy will 
compound the problem. It is 
estimated by the Advice Services 
Alliance that over one half of all 
centres will be affected in some 
way. 

It is vital for the millions oi 
people who use these centres each 


year that they do not disappear. 
We urge central government to 
produce a coherent national policy 
on the funding and development 
of all advice and law centres to 
ensure they are accessible to all 
those who need them. Without 
such a commitment the situation 
can only deteriorate still further.

The ‘workers’ 

From Mr B. R. Tdomey 

Sir, Far too often the word 

workers" is used m this country 
in a divisive and seemingly 
pejorative sense. Politicians of all 
parties do it, as do some company 
directors and managers. 

As a company director I am 
proud to call myself a “worker". It 
seems to me that communications 
and involvement in industry, 
leading to a commitment by all to 
the goals of the business and to 
international competitiveness, 
can only be improved by making 
every attempt to avoid appearing 
to be divisive. 

It seems unnecessarily divisive 
to use the term “managers and 
workers” in counterpoint Perhaps 
The Times could set an example in 
this respect. 

Yours faithfully.

Musical standards 

From Sir Charles Groves 
Sir, Fiona Maddocks’ sane and 
perceptive article on the music 
colleges in today's .Times (March 
6} is fortuitously complemented at 
the bottom of the same page by a 
very favourable review from your 
music critic of the production of 
Nicholas Maw’s opera. The Rising 
of the Moon, at the Guildhall 
School of Music and Drama. 

A few years ago, a work of such 
complexity, challenging singers 
and instrumentalists alike, could 
□ever have been undertaken at a 
music college. Now students can 
perform it and critics can review it 
with the same professional 
assumptions. 

Surely this is the real evidence 
of the rise in standards at our 
music colleges; and how wrong we 
should be to concentrate our 
resources and attempt 10 produce 
the elusive and unpredictable 
world-class soloist

A suspect gloss 

From Mr Peran T. Dachinger 
Sir, An “honest, unrestored 
appearance” may well be a prime 
requirement for purchases of an- 
tique furniture, but I would in- 
form your correspondent, Mr 
Beare (March 4k that few paint- 
ings in salerooms present anything 
other than a dishonest appearance 
when left uncleaned. Often the 
work of previous restorers is 
hidden under layers of dirty 
varnish which in itself may be 
wreaking considerable damage to 
die original work. 

Victorians were very fond of 
over-painting scenes which did 
not subscribe to contemporary 
I 


mores and many a modern re- 
storer has disclosed an original 
nude under a 19th-century figleaf 
or a bull-baiting scene beneath an 
unexceptional woodland picnic. 

Is it to be recommended that 
today's artists should enhance 
their canvases by applying a 
patina in order to ensure future 
sales? I would submit ibis is as 
unnecessary now as it was when 
John Constable mixed his colours 
or Micbaelangclo lay his frescoes 
(noting that the word fresco means 
fresh).

Rising to bait 
on fishing party 

From Mr Guy Chcyney' 

Sir, As one of the participants in 
the controversial television pro- 
gramme, The Fishing Party. I feel 
obliged to reply to the scathing 
criticism levelled at both my 
colleagues and myself by the 
media and public alike. 

it is possible that a very 
different film to the one envisaged 
by us was always in the offing. It is 
equally possible that had we 
caught foe giant halibut there 
might have been a very different 
film. Somehow f doubt whether 
we shall ever know. 

Were we misrepresented, even 
deceived or are we really just rich 
psychopathic killers verging on 
the moronic? To the former my 
response is yes, and as for decep- 
tion only if pne fails to admit to 
trust and vanity. To the latter, as 
we have been branded, I must 
address myself to those members 
of the Press who. I assume, credit 
themselves with infinitely more 
intelled. 

Wfty. I wonder, have they 
reviewed the result of the experi- 
ment, or more accurately fractions 
of it. without a modicum of 
intelligent research into its pro- 
cess. coupled with what I presume 
is the nocmal quota of inaccu- 
racies and even more naive 
presumptions? They are certainly 
unable to recognise the flippant, if 
only they could distinguish iL 
J cannot regret this film, as { 
enjoyed every minute making it, 
merely foe omissions. For foe 
record. I am not rich. I do not 
shoot seagulls. I do not like cats 
and 1 thoroughly support foe 
reintroduction of both corporal 
and capital punishmenL 
I think T will now join the ranks 
of the Champagne socialists, as it 
is evidently easier and more 
rewarding — assuming that I can 
lake the hypocrisy.

Future ofUlster 

From Sir Andrew Gilchrist 
Sir, In your editorial (March S) on 
foe disturbance in Northern Ire- 
land you point to foe “low key” 
role of foe RUC and refer to foe 
Army as “being kept well out of 
sight”. You mention also that foe 
“Loyalist” strikers aimed to 
“strain foe loyalties of the 
Province's (mainly Protestant) po- 
lice force”. 

You might have added that foe 
IRA, who know their history, have 
recently chosen the RUC as a 
principal taigeL 

In 1920 foe forces making for 
Irish independence sought to 
“strain the loyalty” (Le„ loyalty to 
foe British) of the Royal Irish 
Constabulary- by a powerful pro- 
gramme of hate and propaganda 
supplemented by large-scale 
shooting. 

The RIC began to weaken, 
resignations increased, no recruits 
appeared; and the British Govern- 
ment felt compelled to enlist ex- 
servicemen from England. It will 
be recalled that those alien police- 
men soon acquired a famous 
name. 

As in Ireland in 1920. there is 
today in Northern Ireland a body 
of native-born Irish policemen 
who are placed between foe army 
of the ruling power (“direct rule” 
is foe present system) and foe 
civilian population, enabling foe 
Army — as you say — “to be kept 
out of sight''. Without foe RUC 
foe Army itself would have to take 
over direct police duties. 

Not only the Army would be 
Openly involved in the process of 
“direct rule”; we are told that if the 
Northern Ireland elected authori- 
ties do not set rates for themselves, 
foe British Government will ap- 
point commissioners to set rates 
and presumably to collect them. 

Since no Protestants will volun- 
teer for such duties and no 
Catholics will dare to come for- 
ward. foe commissioners will have 
to be recruited in Britain. No 
doubt foe advertisements for foe 
jobs have already been prepared. 
Yours faithfully, 

ANDREW GILCHRIST,

Ancient and modern 

From Mr Alec Bristow 
Sir, Though’ your 84-year-old 
correspondent Mr Jack Sykes 
(March 1) is somewhat my senior 
in years (I am nearly 77). I fancy I 
am his senior in word-processing. 

This letter is being written, 
during a train journey, on the little 
machine, not much bigger than a 
paperback book, which has been 
my constant companion for foe 
past four years or so. When I get 
home 1 shall plug it into my 
electronic typewriter, which will 
type it out at dazzling speed. 

The pleasure an old man derives 
from showing he can still master 
this advanced technology must be 
matched by the pleasure of those 
who no longer have to struggle to 
decipher the shaky handwriting 
that accompanies advancing 
years. 

Yours sincerelv.

Sir. The interesting thing is to

scribed in one of foe specifications 
as “a delightful sun loggia” and in 
foe other as a “strong shed”.

ON THIS DAY 


MARCH 111815 ' 

Napoleon Buonaparte, crowned 
emperor of the French in 
December, 1804, abdicated in 
April, 1814. The following month 
Louis XV It I entered Paris and 
Napoleon landed on the island of 
Elba. His exile there was brief; in 
March. 1815 he u/as back on the 
mainland. His power of appeal 
and the memories of past glories 
brought the populace flocking to 
kirn. Marshal Ney, sent to 
apprehend him, fell under the old 
spell and embraced him. By- 
March 30 he teas at Ike TuUeries 
and Louis had fled to Ghent. The 
adventure lasted 100 days; on 
dune 18 he met Wellington at 
Waterloo. 


NAPOLEON ESCAPES 
FROM ELBA J 

tSarly yesterday morning we 
received by express, from Dover, 
the important but lamentable in- 
telligence, of a civil war having 
been again kindled in France, by 
that wretch BUONAPARTE, 
whose life was so impolitely spared 
by the Allied Sovereigns. It now 
appears that the hypocritical vil- 
lain. who, at the time of his 
cowardly abdication, affected an 
aversion to the shedding of blood 
in a civil warfare, has been 
employed during the whole time of 
his residence at Elba, in carrying 
on secret and treasonable intrigues 
with (he tools of his former crimes 
in France. At length, when bis 
plots were ripe, be sailed from 
Elba, with all his guards, between 
12 and 1300 in number, on the 
night of the 28th ult. and landed 
near Frejus, in France, on the 3d 
instant. Some accounts state that a 
considerable number of military 
were collected on the coast await- 
ing his arrival, and immediately 
joined him. and that he advanced 
at their head upon Lyons. Other 
advices represent, that MASSE- 
NA, who had been appointed by 
the KING to command at Toulon, 
was the chief manager of the 
conspiracy, and had placed all the 
soldiers in the department of the 
Var at BUONAPARTE’S disposal. 
Be this as it may, there can be no 
doubt but that hie will be joined by 
all the worthless, and disaffected, 
wbo unhappily form a large portion 
of the disbanded, and we fear, not a 
few of the embodied soldiery in the 
south of France. When the in tell i 
gence reached Paris, the KING 
immediately took the most decisive 
steps for quelling the insurrection. 
He issued a Proclamation, declar- 
ing BUONAPARTE and all his 
adherents traitors and rebels, and 
authorising any person to seize and 
deliver them over to justice; and by 
another Ordonnance. he convoked 
both Houses of the Legislature to 
assemble, without delay, at their 
usual places of meeting in Paris. 
This virtuous and excellent 
Monarch, who, since his accession, 
has done so much good to the 
country blessed with his govern 
ment. may boldly appeal to the 
nation and its representatives for 
support. If they can be insensible 
to tbe blessings of a constitutional 
and liberal Government, if they 
can be ungrateful to a truly 
paternal Monarch, if they do not 
with abhorrence shake from them 
this Viper of Corsica, their former 
stain, their scourge, and their 
disgrace, they are not worthy to be 
reckoned among mankind; they 
can never be considered capable uf 
those principles and sentiments, 
which are foe only real guarantee 
of peace between foe nations of the 
earth. But we will not anticipate so 
deep- a blot upon the page of 
history. The illustrious Princes of 
the House of Bourbon, MON- 
SIEUR, the Duke of BERRY, and 
the Duke of ORLEANS, have 
proceeded towards Lyons. Marshal 
MACDONALD has taken foe 
command of tbe Royal army; and 
we earnestly hope and trust, that 
ere many posts have elapsed, we 
shall receive accounts that the 
arch-traitor has been delivered 
over to foe disgraceful death he has 
so long and so richly merited 
Aware of the misinterpretation 
which might have been put on our 
motives, had we been over forward 
in giving publicity to so unpleasant 
a piece of news, on private author- 
ity, although of the most respect- 
able kind, we declined issuing a 
second edition of our yesterday’s 
paper, with the proclamation of his 
Most Christian Majesty, but that 
remarkable document will be found 
in our columns to-day, as well as 
tbe order for convoking tbe Legis- 
lative Chambers. In the course of 
the day. dispatches were received 
from our Ambassador at Paris. 
Lord FITZROY SOMERSET, in 
consequence of which, the news 
was circulated from tbe public 
offices, and soon made its way into 
the evening papers, the offices of 
which were besieged by numbers 
filled with the most ardent curios- 
ity, and nearly as much interest 
was displayed on this occasion as 
we remember to have observed at 
foe most critical periods of the late 
war... 


Hatless in London 

Front Mr Richard F. H been 
Sir, My observations of commut- 
es alighting at Cannon Srreer 
station during the recent cold 
weather show that not one in 50 
(male or female) was wearing any 
form of headgear. 

Does this demonstrate foe high 
cost of hats, optimism that by the 
time the train gets to London the 
weather will have turned tropical. 
British sang-froid, bat thieves at 
work, or what?

‘Eating for two’ diet challenged 


By a Special Correspondent 


The adage that pregnant women 
should -eat for two" is being 


questioned by a medical re~ 
p in S< 


search group in Scotland. They 
have started the second part of 
an investigation Into the nu- 
tritional value of various diets 
for both mothers and babies 
daring the 38 weeks of gestation. 

After the most extensive study 
reported on the amount of 
energy consumed by women 
during different stages of preg- 
nancy, Professor John Donun, 
of Glasgow University’s physiol- 
ogy department, and Dr Fiona 
McKillOp have produced more 
questions than answers. 

For a start, they [bond that 
most of their subjects consumed 
for less energy than predicted. 

So with the help of general 
practitioners in Glasgow they 
are inviting people in the area 
planning who become pregnant 
(o join the study. 

The scientists have devised a 
new technique to measure the 

levels of energy needed for 


comparison with the theoretical 
extra energy requirements. 

According to textbook 
calculations, a pregnancy which 
produces a healthy baby, with a 
mother who breast feeds the 
infant successfully, should mean 
a consumption of an extra 
80,000 calories over the period 
of gestation. 

Monitoring of 70 women over 
the first five-year period pro- 
duced results which were " ail 
over the place". Professor 
Dornin said . One in four of 
(hose taking part made do with 
only 20,000 extra calories. 

Many factors can influence 
the nutritional needs of a preg- 
nant woman, apart from her 
weight gam and Oat deposition 
daring pregnancy. They include 
the level of morning richness, 
the energy content of her diet, 
the food-energy conversion rale, 
the amount of physical activity 
and her pregnancy body fat and 
water levels. 

Theoretical calculations allow 


for the development of the baby, 
the placenta and an additional 
eight to ten pounds In fat that 
the mother needs herself to 
accommodate the change. 

Determination of the energy 
needed for this purpose was 
based on an instrament ' that 
records the basal metabolic rate. 
This is a way of assessing the 
chemical turnover of the body 
for breathing, circulation and 
digestion by looking at the rate 
at which oxygen b consumed. 

A more refined measurement 
will be adopted in the second 
study by measuring the amounts 
of oxygen and the deuterium 
form of hydrogen in the urine of 
the subjects. 

. The biochemistry is straight- 
forward but time-coostuning. 
But it provides a more precise 
measure of the amount of oxygen 
absorbed. The research team is 
hoping to attract 200 volunteers. 
It would not be possible to 
measure these variables on a few 
individuals.

MR ALICE DICK 


Alick Sydney Dick, former 
managing director of the Stan- 
dard Triumph motor compa- 
ny, has died at the age. of 69. 

He became head of Stan- 
dard Triumph when he was 
still in his 30s and held the job 
for seven years during which 
time he introduced the fam- 
ous Triumph Herald saloon as 
well as developing the Tri- 
umph sports car range. 

But he left the company in 
1961 after it was taken over by 
Leyland Motors and he never 
held a leading job in the 
British motor industry again. 

Dick was born . in 
Massingham, Norfolk, on 
Jane 20, 1916, the son of a 
doctor, and educated at 
Chichester High School and 
Dean Close School Chelten- 
ham. He joined the then 
Standard Motor Company as 
an apprentice in 1934. He was 
soon promoted and became 
chief buyer for the company’s 
aero-engine' shadowfaclbries. ’ 

During the Second World 
War he was production con- 
trol engineer of both the 
company’s Coventry factories, 
then engaged on aircraft and 
aero-engine production. 

In 1945, after the merger of 
Standard with the Triumph 
company, Dick was appointed 
personal assistant to the man- 
aging director. Sir John Black. 
In 1947 he joined the board 
and became assistant manag- 
ing director. From 1951 to 



1954 Dick - .was / deputy 
manging director and te suc- 
ceeded to the top job in 
January 1954, when Blade was 
forced to retire after Sustaining

parting was officially -de-

were fundamental differences

between the flamboyant Deck 
and the more -cautious and

Spurrier.

and electronics industries. -For 
five years he was managing

company was not big enough 
to survive on its own and 
eventually it was swallowed 
up by Leyland, then solely a

produced three sons. He was 
president of the Society of 
Motor Manufacturers and 
Traders, in 1957. 


MR JACOB JAVTES 


Jacob Javits, the former 
United States Senator, who 
has died at the age of 82, was 
one of the most successful 
vote-winners and most effec- 
tive politicians in the Senate 
of his time. He was for many 
years an influential member of 
the Senate Foreign Relations 
Committee and was also one 
of the laa of the now almost 
extinct line of liberal Republi- 
cans. 

Indeed, he was so far to the 
liberal Left on many issues as 
to constitute an anomaly even 
by the standards of what was 
then called the Rockefeller 
wing of the Republican Party, 
.after Governor Nelson Rocke- 
feller of New York. 

Jacob Koppel Javits was

1904 and grew up at a time

A Long UK Tradition 

General Motors has been an integral 
part of British industry since 1925. 

In that year we acquired VauxhalL In 1931 
we began building Bedford commercial 
vehicles. 

In good times and bad, in peace and in 
war, we have gone on investing in Britain. 
Producing in Britain. Exporting for Britain. 
Providing thousands of jobs. 

In our 60 years we have produced 
5 million Vauxhalls. At Bedford we have 
built 3.5 million commercial vehicles. 

We also make a wide range of com- 
ponents in the UK. 

Humble items like filler caps and air 
filters. High-technology items such as 
instrument clusters and catalytic convert- 
ers. Nearly three-quarters of this output is 
exported 

Stesources, Research and Development 

General Motors is one of the world’s 
most successful motor manufacturers. It 
leads the field in many areas of research, 
development and the application of new 
technologies. 

GM’s British operations have access to 
those worldwide resources and capabilities. 
Capabilities that gave the motorist the 
energy absorbing steering column, the 
multi-beam headlamp and safety wind- 
screen glass and that now contribute to 
space exploration. 

It is GM’s technical excellence in the 
UK, as elsewhere, that is keeping the 
Corporation at the leading edge of new 
product design and the manufacturing 
systems to make those designs.

Production and Marketing Skills 


Quality and value are GM watch- 
words in the quest to succeed in a highly 
competitive worldwide marketplace. 

It is with these criteria in mind that 
GM has invested over £12 billion in the UK 
in the past decade. 

The Cavalier has a superb reputation 
for quality Vauxhall sales figures prove the 
point The Astra, in car and van versions, 
is another success story - in market 
acceptance and in helping to maintain 
employment in the depressed Northwest at 
Ellesmere Port 

Bedford has gone on competing. 
Nearly half its truck output is exported. 
And all this despite over-capacity in the 


world commercial vehicle market 

UK component operations, with 
advanced design and manufacturing as 
good as any in the world, export over 70% 
of their output. 

GM is proud of the tradition of its 
British companies. It plans to 
build on that tradition. 

Into the 21st Century

Factory prices continue to 
rise desnite falling costs 


Industry’s costs dropped 
sharply last month, as the 
pound steadied and electricity 
costs fell Over the past 12 
months, industry’s input 
.prices have plunged by nearly 
10 per cent. 

In contrast, the prices 
charged by manufacturing in- 
dustry continue to increase. 
Last month there wasa Q.4 per 
.cent rise in . output - prices, 
compared with 0.6 per cent in 
January. 'But the 12-month 
rate dropped from 52 per cent- 
to 5 per cent, the smallest rise 
since the current statistical 
series began in 1974. 

The gap between industry's 
material costs and factory gate 
prices suggests that firms are 
likely to enjoy a substantial- 
profits bonus as a result of 
lower commodity and energy 
costs. But one-reason for the 
continued rise in output prices 
is that wage costs are growing 
at an underlying rate or nearly 
9 per cent in manufacturing. * 

Manufacturing industry's 



input prices fell by 1.2 per cent 
last month. New tariff ar- 
rangements for electricity 
meant that the post- winter fill 
in charges came through earli- 
er than usual. 

The pound was steady 
against the dollar, the average 
exchange: rate for the month 
showing a rise of 0.3 per cent 
and this, in combination with 
weak world prices, produced a 


fill in industry's imported raw 
material costs. 

There was also a substa ntial 
fill in the posted prices of 
petroleum products. Officials 
said that the effects of the 
three factors were roughly 
equal in producing the fall in 
input prices, c- . 

Compared with February 
last year, input prices have 
fallen by 9.5 per cent, the 


biggest i 2-month fill since the 
1950s. In January, input 
prices were down by 7 per cent 

The February figures may 
represent the low point In 
March last year, as the effects 
of the pound’s recovery came 
through, input prices fell by 
1.5 per cent. A larger decline 
than this would be needed to 
push the 12-month fill above 
February’s 9.5 percent. 

However, further oil price 
and electricity price declines 
have still to come through to 
the figures and the pound, 
while volatile, has remained 
above its February average 
against the dollar so fir in 
March. 

The drop in producer prices 
will feed through to lower 
retail price inflation in the 
coming months. The Chancel- 
lor will publish a new inflation 
forecast in the Budget next 
week and is expected to stick 
to his prediction of 3.75 per 
cent inflation in the fourth 
quarter. 


Tin prices reach lowest 
point for nine years 

By Michael Prest, Financial Correspondent 


Tin prices on the grey 
market, now rapidly becom- 
ing the real market, fell to 
around £5,250 a tonne yester- 
day, their lowest for nine years 
and £1,000 below the settle- 
ment price set by the London 
Metal Exchange. 

The weakness in advance of 
tomorrow's “ring out” on the 
LME, when all contracts be- 
tween members and between 
members and their clients 
must be settled in cash at the 
fixed price of £6,250 a tonne, 
is bound to raise more ques- 
tions about the wisdom of the 
LME*s solution to -tire tin 
airis. 

A ruling price significantly 
out of line with the market 


LME*s chief executive, admit- 
ted. yesterday that the ex- 
change expects suits to be 
bought against it 

But one broker in the thick 
of the crisis, Gerald Metals — 
its managing director, Mr 
Ralph Kestenbaum, was one 
of the authors of the rejected 
Tinco rescue plan — said 
yesterday, that it had ample 
resources to cover losses likely 
to be incurred from the ring 
out 

The device is called a ring 
out when all members of the 
CTchang R settle outstanding 
contracts at a fixed price. This 
was used in June, 1985 after 
the Internationa] Tin Council 
buffer stock manager, Mr 
Pieter de Koning, had success- 


price may also increase the 
risk of disgruntled holders of fully squeezed speailators try 
contracts bringing legal ac- ing to force the price down, 
tions against the exchange: Officially the ITC has not 

Mr Michael Brown, the given up hope that the Tinco 


plan can be revived Delegate 
sources said yesterday that 
they were waiting to hear 
formally from Indonesia and 
Thailand that they had turned 
down weekend requests to 
reconsider their rejection of 
the scheme. 

The sources said that, 
should Indonesia join the 
scheme, Thailand was likely 
to follow. India, which had 
reserved its position, would 
also join in. 

The sources added that 
Brazil which, although not a 
member of the ITC, has 
become a substantial tin pro- 
ducer in recent years, had 
shown interest in participating 
in Tinco. 

But most brokers and bank- 
ers are sceptical. They are 
bracing themselves for 
tomorrow's round of what one 
called “bloodletting.

Ladbroke 
in £201m 
DIY deal 

By Cliff Feltbam 

Ladbroke, the betting and 
; hotels group, yesterday agreed 
to pay £201 million for Home 
Charm Group, the Texas 
Homecare DIY chain. 

The deal, which nearly col- 
lapsed because of disappoint- 
ment oyer Home Charm’s 
most recent profits, rounds off 
a big shake-up in the DIY 
market. 

• Payless, which operates 68 
superstores in the South-east, 
was sold by the Mariey group 
at the end of last week for £94 
miHion to Ward White, the 
fist moving retail group. 

The bid for Home Charm, 
which has the backing of 
directors and relatives or Mr 
Manny Fogel, the chairman, 
speaking for more than 25 per 
cent of the equity, involves a 
straight one-for-one share 
swap, placing a value on each 
Home Charm share of 353p or 
a cash alternative of 325p. 

A week ago. Home Charm 
announced the withdrawal of 
a mystery bidder after talks 
had broken down, cau sin g its 
shares to plunge from a peak 
of 390p to 285p although they 
later recovered. 

Ladbroke, which admits it 
was in the talks, says it 
decided to revise its offer after 
it emerged that Home Charm 
profits were likely to disap- 
point. Yesterday, the g roup 
announced pretax profits of 
£10.9 millio n, down from £1L1 
million, and some way off the 
£12 million anticipated by the 
market. 

Home Charm blames the

Rank tells court of 
‘unfair pressure’ 


The Independent Broad- 
casting Authority’s decision to 
veto The Rank Organisation's 
£750 million bid for control of 
Granada was taken after pres- 
sure from Granada to block 
the takeover, a QC said in the 
HighCourt yesterday. 

Mr Ian Hunter QC, for 
Rank, told Mr Justice Mann 
Granada executives asked the 
IBA to rule against the Rank 
bid. He accused the IBA of 
refusing to hear representa- 
tions from Rank before mak- 
ing its decision. 

He was opening Rank’s 
application for an order 
quashing the veto and an 
injunction banning the IBA 
from cancelling Granada's 
North-west television fran- 
chise if the takeover goes 
ahead. 

Mr Hunter said that on 
February 21 there was a 
meeting between executives of 
the IBA and Granada attend- 
ed by Lord Thomson, IBA 
chainnan- 

On February 24, Granada 
wrote to the IBA, opposing the 
bid and urging the authority to 
make the decision that Rank 
was not an aproved company 
and to make that decision 
quickly. 

“No copy of the letter was 
sent to Rank and no intima- 
tion was given that the letter 
had been written,” said Mr 
Hunter. 

“It looks as though the IBA 
representatives agreed with 
Granada that Rank was not to 
be given the status of an 
approved company.” 

Despite Lord Thomson's 
assurances on February 20 to 
Sir Patrick Meaney, the Rank 
chairman, that Rank would be 
invited to make representa- 
tions as soon as the IBA had 
been approached by Granada 
over the offer, this was not 
done before the decision was 



Lord Thomson: denied 
acting improperly 

made, Mr Hunter said. 

. Rank contends En the case- 
expected to last for two days - 
that the decision by the IBA to 
block its takeover of Granada 
was unreasonable. 

Rank also contends the IBA 
was wrong to claim the take- 
over fell fool of the 1981 
Broadcasting Act 

In a sworn statement. Lord 
Thomson denied be or the 
authority had acted improper- 

iy- 

He said the meeting with 
Granada executives was held 
at the request of Sir Denis 
Forman, chairman of Grana- 
da. 

“The authority wanted to 
know the views of the Grana- 
da group,” he said. Lord 
Thomson denied he had told 
Sir Patrick the IBA would give 
Rank a chance to make repre- 
'senlations. 

He said be feared a public 
meeting with Rank would 

over-innate the value of 
Granada's shares. 

Lord . Thomson said it was 
-the lBA's policy to look at 
every takeover case on its own 
merits.“I am satisfied that the 
authority acted fairly and in 
compliance with its statutory 
duties.” 


Argyll 
goes to 
appeal 


Argyll Group’s attempt to 
block its rivals Guinness in 
the battle for control of Distill- 
ers moved to the Appeal Court 
yesterday. 

Last week, Mr Justice Mac- 
pherson dismissed Argyll's ap- 
plication for an order 
declaring illegal the Monopoly 
and Mergers Commission de- 
cision to call off its inquiry 
into the Guinness bid. 

Argyll had accused the 
chairman of the Monopolies 
Commission, Sir Godfrey Le 
Quesne, QC, and the junior 
Trade Minister Mr Geoffrey 
^Pa trie, of acting unlawfully in 
“laying aside” the reference of 
the Guinness bid to the Com- 
mission. 

Mr Alan Heyman, QC, 
opening Argyll's appeal 
against Mr Justice 
Macpherson’s decision, told 
Sir John Donaldson, Master 
of the Rolls, Lord Justice 
Dillon and Lord Justice Neill 
there were four main issues. 

* They were: Did the chair- 
man of the Commission cor- 
rectly direct himself in law as 
to whether the proposal to 
make arrangements men- 
tioned in the merger reference, 

■ had been abandoned within 
■the meaning of section 75(5) 
of the Fair Trading Act, 1973? 

Did the chairman acting 
alone have power under the 
Act so to determine? 

If Argyll succeeded on ei- 
ther of these questions ought 
the court to withhold relief in 
its discretion? 

Ought the court to withhold 
relief on the ground that 
Argyll had no sufficient inter- 
est in the matter? 

Argyll claimed that Mr Jus- 
tice Macpherson was wrong in 
law in holding that the func- 
tion of the Commission under 
section 75(5) could validly be 
performed by the chairman 
alone. 

The hearing is expected to 
last three days.

Golden Wonder price 
attacked by Hanson 


Lord Hanson, the chairman of 
Hanson Trust relumed to the fray 
yesterday in support of his £2.3 
billion bid for Imperial Group by 
attacking Imperial’s planned sale of 
its snacks subsidiary Golden Wonder 
“at a discount” and “over the heads 
of its own shareholders”. 

Hanson Trust was responding to 
press reports that the sale of Golden 
Wonder was imminent for a price 
between £55 million and £60 million. 
Some City analysts had estimated it 
was worth more than £70 million. 
Hanson Trust accused Imperial and 
United Biscuits of acting with un- 
seemly haste in trying to push 
through their agreed merger. 

Following an incorrect press re- 
port, it also questioned why Morgan 
Grenfell, UB’s adviser, was seeking 
buyers for Golden Wonder rather 
than Hambros, Imperial’s adviser. 
But Hambros confirmed that it was 
handling the sale. Imperial denied 
that it would sell Golden Wonder at 
anything other than a highly justifi- 
able price. It questioned the correct- 
ness of some analysts guestimates of 
Golden Wonder's worth. 

Hanson Trust also issued two 
documents entitled “Why you should 
vote no to United Biscuits’ offer for 
Imperial” and “The value of Hanson 
Trust's offers”. Hanson repeated its 
attack on UB’s purchase, through 
Morgan Grenfell, of a 14.9 per cent 
stake in Imperial, 

Hanson claims the purchase was a 
breach of the spirit of Stock Exchange 
rules, which forced the Exchange into 
introducing a rule to prevent compa- 
nies entering into similar arrange- 
ments without shareholders’ consent. 

Hanson listed all its various 
combinations of offers for Imperial 
and pointed out that UB had no all- 
cash alternative and no comparable 
offer to Hanson’s share and loan note 
option. 

UB’s share and cash offer was 
worth £2.5 billion at UB's closing 
price of 233p last night. There is little 
between the bids in money terms and 
the outcome is expected to be decided 
on the two different concepts in- 
volved and expectations of the after- 
bid performance of the shares. 

Poor little M0 

Today’s money supply numbers have 
been given an addkl frisson by the 
Chancellor's decision to reinstate his 
sterling M3 target in the Budget in a 
week’s time. The return of sterling 
M3, even looked at in the negative 
sense of there being no other good 
measure of broad money to slot into 
its place, is also likely to mean that 
the markets will find even less to 


boiber about in the movements of 
narrow money, M0. 

The money numbers, the last 
major set of economic statistics 
before the Budget, have to be well- 
behaved. Welcome relief though the 
0.1 per cent January rise in sterling 
M3 was — this more than anything 
helped the authorities get away with 
only one base rate rise — Mr Lawson 
would give a lot for a similar rise, for 
banking February, to be announced 
today. 

On this, as might be expected, there 
are different schools of thought 
among City economists. One is that 
January was not an aberration and 
that the huge public sector surplus for 
calendar January - the second half of 
which is in banking February - 
implies no increase in sterling M3. 

A second school adopts the tried 
and trusted Bank of England method 
of taking two months together. A 
good month is usually followed by a 
bad one, so January’s virtual stand- 
still for sterling M3 could have been 
followed by a 2 per cent rise last 
month. 

In the middle, comes the view that 
bank lending will be higher, but offset 
by the public sector's negative 
contribution, giving 1 per cent on 
sterling M3. 

Clearly, the last thing the Chan- 
cellor wants at this stage, with the 
bulls at the base rate gate, is a bad set 
of sterling M3 numbers, even on the 
argument that this would allow him 
enough base drift to have a sporting 
chance of staying within a sterling M3 
target, if only for the first few months 
of the financial year. 

Hoare Govett appears to be at the 
top end of the forecast range, 
predicting a 1.8 per cent February 
sterling M3 rise. The main counter- 
parts are a £1.75 billion bank lending 
increase and an expansionary public 
sector influence of £650 million. If 
there is a 1 .8 per cent increase, the 1 2- 
month rate of increase in sterling M3 
would be the highest since 1980. 

Laurie Milbank, just below Hoare 
Govett at 1.75 per cent, similarly 
refuses to be over-persuaded by the 
January figures.lt predicts bank lend- 
ing will return to a more normal £1.5 
billion, compared with £0.4 billion in 
January and the public sector will be 
expansionary by £1.1 billion. 

Whichever end of the range 
emerges at 2.30 this afternoon, 
problems of interpretation will re- 
main. Higher interest rates have the 
short-term effect of boosting sterling 
M3. Now that the Chancellor has 
abandoned overfunding, it could be 
argued that the logical response to a 
bad set of money numbers is to cut 
base rates. 


Granada enters hotel battle 
for business travellers 

By Derek Harrisjndustrial Editor 


A battle to woo the budget- 
conscious business travellers 
is breaking out with the entry 
this summer of the Granada 
Group into the hotel sector so 
far exploited in Britain only by 
Trusthouse Forte. 

But there are already signs 
of competition from hotel 
companies in France where 
this new market is more 
mature and still growing. 

The costs of an overnight 
stay are as little as half that at 
typical chain hotels catering 
mainly for business travellers. 
This is because the cost per 
bedroom of providing the 
new-style units has been 
brought down to £20,000 or 
Jess compared with a typical 
provincial three-star hotel 
building price of £45,000 to 
£55,000 a bedroom. 

Granada is planning a chain 
of Granada Lodges, with the 
first 20 to 30 units likely to be 
brought on stream relatively 
quickly to achieve a national 
presence. The first two open- 
ing ibis summer will together 
cost around £2 million. 

Trusthouse Forte, Britain’s 
biggest hotels company, has 
already successfully opened 
two Little Chef Lodges and 
envisages a chain of about 1 00 
with the bedroom units going 


up on sites used by Little Chef 
roadside restaurants of which 
Trusthouse Forte has now 
opened more than 200. 

There is increasing trade 
speculation that French spe- 
cialists in this developing 
market will mount an attack 
in Britain. 

Companies linked with 
Accor, the big French hotels 
and restaurants operator, al- 
ready have a foothold in 
Britain, including Novolel {a 
three-to- four-star chain) and 
Ibis (two-to-three-star). Ibis, 
with a London Heathrow 
airport hotel operating and 
one near Euston railway sta- 
tion due to open in July next 
year, is already pricing keenly 
at about £5 below the going 
rate for its hotel categories. 

Other French operators in 
the budget-price sector in- 
clude Merc ure (also part of 
Accor), Climat de France and 
Campanile. Another budget- 
price concept at Accor is a 
one-star hotels chain. 

Accor's strategy in Britain 
has so far been to establish 
Novotel outlets mostly on or 
near motorways. There are 
currently five such sitings, at 
Brentford. Coventry, Notting- 
ham. Plymouth and Preston. 
NovotePs main London prop- 


erty is its hotel at Hammer- 
smith. Ibis hotels are expected 
to be in towns or adjacent to 
key airports and rail stations. 
There are plans for a hotel 
near Luton Airport and the 
aim is to grow the Ibis chain to 
six or seven outlets within five 
years. 

It seems unlikely that Accor 
will be content to keep its 
involvement with the British 
market at this level. Like other 
hotel groups it has taken a 
keen interest in the 
Trusthouse Forte initiative on 
the budget-priced lodges. The 
Accor group now accounts for 
some 530 hotels and 1.800 
restaurants world wide. 

The marketing strategy be- 
hind the lodge-style accom- 
modation in Britain is to 
exploit what is seen as a gap in 
the overnight stay market. At 
present any business travellers 
like the self-employed or those 
with smaller companies look- 
ing for cheaper accommoda- 
tion have to seek out 
individual lodgings whose 
quality can vary widely. 

The first two Granada 
Lodges will be at Stirling, 
opening in May with 36 
bedrooms, and Exeter, a 58- 
room complex due to open in 
July. 


Consumer credit sets record 


By Our Economics Correspondent 


The ffMwmwer credit boom 
has con tm oed into this year, 
according to figures published 
today- 

Credit oa hire purchase, and 

on hank and in-store credit 
cards, totalled *2,735 mflttM 
in January, compared with 
£2^501 million in December. 

The figures include thos e fry 
Access and Bardaycard, with 
in-store credit cards like the 
Marks and Spencer charge 
card, fo the first tim& Ameri- 
can Express and Diners Chib 
caitis, as genuine charge 
fonts, are not included in the 
credit figures. 

However, even without tius 
inclusion of the new figures, 
credit rose to a record in 
January. On the old basis of 


hire pmchase and other instal- 
ment credit, tile total increased 
from £L,192tmflHra in Decem- 
ber to £1,388 million in Janu- 
ary, a rise of 16.4 per cent 
This was mainly because of 
special low-cost finance 
schemes offered by the motor 
manufacturers in January, al- 


for credit remained strong. 

Retail sales fin* January 
were better than the provision- 
al information suggested. The 
index of retail safes volume 
(1988=100) was revised from 
116 to 117, 0-3 per cent below 
the December peak. 

Bnt the rise in the Novem- 
ber-Jammy period, compared 
with the previous three 
months, was a modest 1 per 
cent, suggesting Mine slow- 


down hx the pare of spending. 
Compared with a year earlier, 
sales were ap by 35 per cent 

February’s ky weather took 
some toll of retail sales, but 
trade reports indicate contin- 
ued growth with some chains 
claiming increases of op to 10 
per cent after allowing for 
inflation. 

The Retail Consortium wel- 
comed die re-assessed figures 
for January, commenting: 
“The January sales dearly did 
better than some had 
expected.” 

At the 21 department stores 
of the John Lewis Partnership 
the effect of the wintry weather 
was felt particularly in the last 
week of February when the 
chain foiled to meet its sales 
targets. Sales were op by only 


7.8 per rent, but over five 
weeks to March 1, covering 
the bad weather, sales overall 
were up 11 per cent 

Allowing for sector infla- 
tion, actual sales growth would 
probably have been around 8 
per cent. Sales of some goods 
rose during the frost and snow: 
gloves alone saw increases of 
180 per rent in the last week of| 
February and were running at 
almost double last year’s lev- 
els during February as a 
whole. But items like fashion 
wear were selling less well 
during die bad weather. 

Sales of domestic electrical 
appliances are running about 
10 per rent ahead of this time 
last year according to 
Rumbetows, the electrical 
goods chain.

FINANCE AND INDUSTRY

The tone- of the £79 miffion 
bid from IM1 for Martonair 
International came as a re- 
freshing relief after the exces- 
sive. language, and tactics 1 
employed in some of ; the 
,mega4»ds in progress at the 
moment 

IMT and Martonairseem to 
have nothing hut respect for 
each other’ s abilities. The two 
companies know each other 
wdD through their strong, 
positions in the pneumatics 
industry worldwide. 

Martonair’s rejection of 
IMTs opening salvo is mildly 
worded and appears Id hinge 

solely mi price. Martonair 

knows there are other poten- 
tial bidders and is rightly not 
prepared to throw in its hand 
with IMT until the market has 
been tested to obtain the best 
possible deal for sharehold- 
ers. 

Thai said, the price IMI is 
offering looks fairiy generous. 
It became more generous 
yesterday as IMTs shares rose 
on excellent 1985 results, 
announced yesterday , and on 
market perceptions of tfae 
industrial Logic of the offer. 

IMI madd pretax profits of 
£57.8 miDrofl, 28 percent up 
on 1984, on sales only 4 per 
cent higher. It also raised its 
dividend to 5.25p, a rise of 
16. 7 jper cent The margins on 
its fluid power business, 
which it wants' to group with 
Martonair’s pneumatic con- 
trol equipment, rose to . a 
handsome 13-2 per cent from 
2,8 per cent four years ago. 

. The synergy argument is a 
convincingone^IMrisstrotig 
in the US and less successful, 
in Germany. Martonair lias 
done well in' Germany and 
less well in the US. On both a 
geographical and product ba- 
sis, the two companies are a 
good fit and together they 
stand a better chance of 
competing with the large 
Japanese, German and 
US competitors. 

At a closing price for IMI 
shares of 1 65p, up 1 5p yester- 
day, the offer values Marton- 
air shares at 605p each, 
compared with a- price of 
’410p before the bid approach 
was revealed last week. The 
exit p/e ratio on historic 
earnings is a far-from-mean 
22.5. 

It could be argued that IMI 
is paying too much, given the 
potential, danger that , the 
pneumatic industry is at the 
top. of its cycle. There is a ; 
feeling jo some qtyaQ(xs: that 
IMI would dobetiertomove 
into an entirely new area 
rather than, put too many eggs 
in thepneumatic basket 

There is also the danger of 
a competition reference ail 
argues that the combined 
share of the British pneumatic 


control • equii 

would be under 20 per cent, 
but that all depends on how 
the Office of Fair Trading 
segments the market 
..For.: . the' moment, 
Martonair shareholders 
•’ should sit tight and see if any 
other bidders are flashed out • 

Pillangton 

Since „ 1982, when 
PUkington acquired .-its 29.5 
cent holding in Ubbey- 
■Ford of Ohio, the 
corporate planners have been 
considering the strategic next 
step. Not being a company to 
^riisft into thing s, PUkington 
chose, to wait for a -full 
tumround to profits at LOFs 
glass business before suggest- 
ing the swap of its near one- 
thnd stake in LOF for the 
glass operations, which con- 
veniently account for about a 
third of LOF sales. 

The deal values the glass 
operations at about $310 
million (£225 million), allow- 
fbr the $70 million debt 
PiDdngton win take bn 
board.' As an independent 
company, the glass business - 
would have contributed pre- 
tax profits of about $47 
million in 1985, $11 million 
up on Filkington's share of 
profits from its LOF holding. 
In 1986 LOF glass sates are 
expected to increase from 
$690 million to $785 million 
which, on maintained mar- 
gins, will . mean operating 
profits of more than $57 
million and a useful boost to 
’ earnings next year. - 

The acquisition makes 
PiDtington the iuufisputed 
world leader in floaf glass 

cantiy shift the geographical 
habneft of the company so 
that about a third of sales 
arise in the USL 

Meanwhile, Filkington's 
plans to expand its electro- 
optical and ophthalmic inter- 
ests run on with the. 
acquisition of a . US electro- . 
optical company under nego- 
tiation. It is more than ayear 
since Pilkington’s £105 mflr 
Uon rights issue, but when the 
company's year . ends on 
March 31 net debt is unlikely 
to be higher than 30 per cent 
of shareholders’ funds so, 
white the company digests 
LOF and Syntex, further 
small purchases are likely. 

PUkington will next- year 
drop its additional depseoa^ 
tibn charg e , . and profits: — 
aftercontinuing redundancy 
chafes — ' could reach £174 
muncm compared with die' 
£132 million (on the same 
basis) expected by the market 
for 1985-86. 

. The shares, up 13p at 43 
have risen from below ‘ _ 
at the time of the interim 


. results, and are selling on 10 
times prospective earnings. 
The .re-rating should have 
furthe r to go. 

• : 11)G 

You might expect a company 
' run predominately by Scots 
to be cautious. But. in the 
road transport business, it is 
the only way to stay alive and 
Transport Development 
Group has done more than 
just stay alive. 

Beinga true service compa- 
ny, its fortunes are inextrica- 
bly Jinked with those of its 
customers. Its road haulage 
companies must be .abfe to 
respond quickly to increases 
. m demand in the economy to 
enable it to deliver higher 
quantities of goods to the 
consumer. Its storage busi- 
ness will thrive when manu- 
facturers have the confidence 
to rebuild stocks. These two 
activities together account for 
about 85 per cent of TDG’s 
business. 

The 1985 results an- 
nounced today ■ showed a 
pretax profit of £29.7 millibit, 
up 23 per cent on last year. 
Some of this is : due to the 
company's own efforts to 
turn round some of its poor 
performers and shift invest- 
ment out of unproductive 
assets. Some ofh is due to an 
increase in traffic volumes in 
the United Kingdom. 

- TDG is a prime beneficiary 
of Opec’s problems. It has an 
annual fuel bill of more than 
£100 million, amounting to 
between 20 and 25 pet* cent of 
'tnrnbveri A 2p a gallon M in 
the . price of diesd will feed 
through directly to a £1 
million benefit to pretax prof- 
it. 

This improvement in mar- 
gins is likely to be temporary 
as customers will themselves 
seek price reductions. But 
there will be a time 
lagAriqther area of improve- 
ment is likely to be the 
United Stales. Since deregu- 
lation of tire road turning* , 
industry in the early 198&, 
TOG'S West Coast subsidiary 
: Wiffig has been able to ex- 
pand organically from Calk 
forma info Nevada, Arizona 
arid Oregon. It is one of the 
lowest cost operators in the 
region. 

The group is very optimis- 
tic about its prospects in the 
United Kingdom where it 
still earns 62 per cent of its 
profit- 

- The market was favourably 
impressed with these results 
and marked the shares up 
from 161pto 174p. Given the 
positive outlook for the econ- 
omy as a whale and oil prices 
in particular, a rating of 1 1 
times 1986 earnings does not 
took too demanding. 


STOCK MARKET REPORT 


Second liners outpace blue chips 


Stock markets continued 
buoyant on speculative buying 
in the wake of new takeover 
situations. Although (town 
slightly at the dose, shares 
were spurred by the prospect 
of a 12 per cent bank base rate 
next week. 

The main activity was cen- 
. lered on secondary issues 
where double figure gains were 
cOmmon, with jobbers becom- 
ing acutely short of stock in 
many cases. The FT 3G*hare 
index slipped 3.2 points and 
the FT-SE was down 1572 2. 

Government securities were 
in joyful mood again, dosing 
with gains of over £1 as 
interest rates fell in the west- 
ern world. The demand ex- 
hausted another tap issue, the 
Vk per cent Exchequer 1990 
favoured by high taxpayers 
which was under-subscribed 
at its £77 tender price on 
January 22 

Lea d i ng industrials were 
subdued, with ex-dividend 
quotations distorting the FT 
30 index. BTR was wanted at 
453p up 8p ahead of 
tomorrow’s results, while Brit- 
ish Telecom reporting on 
Thursday lost 3p more to 

220p. 

Takeover situations 
abounded.- Home -Charm 
opened the session with an 
1 1 p rise to 342p after agreeing 
1-for-l share swap terms with 
Ladbroke, J6p down at 348 p.

Tornado

Vinten Group has decided 


not. to provide additional 
funding for its subsidiary’s 
video recorder development 
contract for the Tornado 
recoimaisance system. 

Vinten Avionic Systems 
bad “encountered further se- 
vere technical problems” in 
to achieve the excep- 
jr demanding perfor- 
mance requirements of the 
recorders, the group said. 

Vinten last year had to 
provide £814,000 against an 
expected toss on the fixed- 
pnee contract, signed by the 
management of S Davall and 
Sons before the company was 
acquired by Vinten in 1984. 

Vinten said it was dear that 
a further substantial provision 
would be required if comple- 
tion of the contract was to be 
attempted.

the Ipswich manufacturer of 
lawnmowers and farm ma- 
chinery, increased pretax prof- 
its from £5J million to just

COMMODITIES review 



over 
for LME traders 


Most of London's commodity 
traders were in their beds — ■ 
though l doubt, in the circum- 
stances whether they were 
steeping easily - when Indo- 
nesia and Thailand sealed the 
fete of TinCo. It. was, in troth, 
a very likely ending, and 
nobody was surprised, even if 
many will mourn. We now 


credy fed the same way, so the 
scale is set fora barite royal 
uncannily reminiscent of the 
treatment the Opec brothers 
mete out to each other. 

In the middle is the LME. 
Tomorrow, everybody takes a 
deep breath and hopes that the 
backlog of prompt contracts 
datum from October 25 can be

Orraiher, two chapters. For •teS^SOOOC^^MlSo 
e-big questions now are what -SS? of* 

hands r- worth at the fixed 


thebig questions now are what 
will happen to the Internation- 
al Tin Council and what will 
- happen to the London Metal 
Exchange. The latter is easier, 
to answer than the former. 

The position of the ITC is 
curious, to say the least LME 
brokers , and other traders 
understandably have little in- 
clination for so academic a 
pursuit as contemplating the 
fete of the ITC Is not the 
council all washed tip? Well, 
up to a point. Lord Copper. 

It is true that the council 
presents a sorry spectacle. Its 
'secretariat is reviled — unfair- 
ly in my judgement — and its 
members have abandoned 
ship. There is just about 
enough money in the adminis- 
trative account to pay the 
wages up to the end of the 
financial year on June 30:. 
Normally, under the Interna- 
tional Tin Agreement, which 
technically remains in force 
and to which the 22 members 
are still party, the budget 
would be automatically re- 
plenished. 

But will it be this time? 
Nobody has bothered to tell 
the' Stan, a quarter of whom 
have been given notice, just in 
case. What long-term plans do ; 
the members have for the 
council? Nobody has vouch- 
safed that either. The assump- 
tion is that the organization 
will become an administrative 
body, primarily gathering sta- 
tistics. like the Internationa] 
Wheat Council That is a 
reasonable and useful func- 
tion. But there again, the 
silence is deafening.

price of £6.250 a tonne - 
between £31.2 million and 
£36.9 million. 


Scene is set for 
abattle royal 
with exchange 
in the middle 


There are two catches. One 
is that the “ring out” is for 
cash settlement, in other 
words, physical tip will not be 
accepted against contracts. As 
a consequence, 60,000 to 
70,000 tonnes of metal will be 
left in LME warehouses. 

As Mr Brown succinctly put 
it “The LME is no longer 
involved with the physical tin 
in its warehouses.” This tin 
wfll have to be sold on the 
open market — with what 
results is anyone’s guess. A 
price of £4,000 a tonne — half 
the suspension price — is quite 
conceivable. 

. The other catch is the law 
Being deprived of the ability 
to deliver physical metal will 
be bad enough for the shorts. 
On top of that, their possible 
profit has been curtailed by 
the fixed price of £6,250, 
which is almost certainly be- 
low the contract price. 

Under the new LME rules, 
the seller is entitled to claim 
from the buyer the difference 
between the fixed ring out 
price and the contract price. 
Conversely, the buyer can 
claim the difference from the 
seller if the contracted price 
was less than £6.250 a tonne. 

It is inevitable that ag- 
grieved parties will bring suits 
against the exchange and the 
ITC, which, as the biggest 
customer, is exposed both as 
buyer and seller. Whether 
firms sue the ITC, its mem- 
bers (or some of them), or 
bbth is a matter of tactics.

COMPUTER HORIZONS/1 


Edited by Matthew May 


Spectrum 
software 
claims off 
target 

Sr Clive Sinclair's claim that 
his la test computer, the Spec- 
trum 128, will ran all the 
software written for earlier 
versions of the Spectrum is 
apparently not quite true. 

Purchasers who have up- 
graded to the the new comput- 
er frorathe Spectrum Plus are 
complaining that a few pieces 
of software, including the 
chart topping program 
Elite, will not run on the new 
machine. Other programs af- 
fected include Harter and 
BCs Quest for Tires. 

Sinclair is understandably 
embarrassed butjis putting the 
blame for the confusion on the 
software firms responsible for 
the incompatible programs. 
Sinclair claims that they made 
irresponsible assumptions in 
using certain parts of the 
computer memory for their 
programs that should be left 
for the manufacturers, even 
though some software in- 
volved appeared on a Sinclair 
list of popular programs that 
would be compatible. 

Sinclair is hoping to gain a 
significant part of sales of the 
128 Spectrum Grom owners of 
older versions upgrading as 30 
per cent of home computer 
sates are estimated to be to 
households which already 
have a computer. 


Ready for the take-off 


Satellites have consistently remained at 
the centre of international political 
debate in recent years. That debate has 
focused on the commercial future of 
services offered on satellite, the legal 
control which will need to be exercised 
to ensure some semblance of order in 
this new industry and what power a 
particular sovereign state will have over 
satellite transmissions generated out- 
side national boundaries. 

Last week London was the venue for 
the latest satellite conference - with 
speakers from France, America and 
Britain prominent. The French charac- 
teristically boasted their success in 
introducing new technology and their 
commitment to its growth. Satellites 
would play a significant pan in that 
blueprint as would cable, videotex, 
computers and interactive services. 

The Americans, still the world leaders 
in the use of domestic satellites, 
impressed the Europeans, particularly 
those who envisaged Europe emulating 
the US. 

Then came the British, predictably 
divided and arguing for more British 
innovation, less government interfer- 
ence by calling for the satellite business 
to be liberated from bureaucratic con- 
trol. 

However, many in the European 
computer/telecommunications indus- 
tries have still failed to grasp that 
satellite services must be commercial. 
That stark message was emphasized last 
week, too, through the publication of a 
report studying the maiket potential of 
the Europe satellite service business — 
those operators which will offer a 
plethora of channels like data, news and 
entertainment The report was bullish. 

The study, the product of CIT 


Research, predicted a boom in the 
revenue generated by those satellite 
services. The survey determined reve- 
nue rising to US$1.5 billion a year by 
1995 but the business sector would be 
the one which would contribute the 
lion's share of the new revenue. The 
non-business sector, attracted largely by 
television channels, would be the minor 
partner. 

European deregulation would stimu- 
late that growth. Total satellite income 
in western Europe would rise to USS 1 20 
million a year within two years. By 
1 990. the report predicts, that revenue 



Bill Johnstone 

Tecfwo/ogi' Correspondent 

will have grown to USS 370 million, 
which could quadruple five years later. 
CIT detailed these growth areas; 

• Internal corporate commmu ideation 
networks; 

• video and teleconferencing; 

• computer communications; 

• distribution of earth resource pictures 
for use in weather forcasting and 
geological surveys: 

• electronic mail and high speed 
telefacsimile: 

• data bases and the services derived 
from them; 

• remote/deceniralized printing; 

• education, training and information; 

• the distribution of data and 
audio/video signals. 

But the CIT report gave little encour- 
agement to those who wished to copy 


the Americans, principally in satellite 
television. The US is “tailored-made for 
satellites" but not so Europe, says CIT. 
“Using American data to support a 
European case is misleading...!! would 
be quite wrong to rely on the US 
experience of satellite television. A 
realistic future European pattern would 
be quite different, even though six 
million homes are now receiving satel- 
lite broadcasts. 

“Western Europe has 121 million TV 
homes. CIT s consumer research sug- 
gests some 40 million have a genuine 
interest in new TV programmes or 
services. Of these five million already 
have cable. Eliminating those with no 
garden, backyard, or indeed any practi- 
cal facility to install even a small dish, 
leaves about 1 S million. Another three 
million may have national or local 
regulatory problems, so we are left with 
some 15 million - the real gross 
potential". 

If CIT is correct the European satellite 
service industry may follow the pattern 
experienced by Prestel, the viewdata 
service offered by British Telecom. 
Originally believed to be a consumer 
product, it soon became clear to the 
managers of the Prestel service that 
their primary market was business. 

However. international 

computer/data services beamed by 
satellite could present Europe with 
more difficulties than television trans- 
missions. The laws of copyright are still 
outdated in Europe. Their revision is a 
principal task of most European govern- 
ments - including the EEC itself. Weak 
or ineffective legislation could seriously 
impede the growth potential of the 
satellite services markeL 



The next stage: Atari 520STM, at £399 

Euro launchings 
setting hot pace 


By Geof Wheel wright 
The competition among man- 
ufacturers, in the high power, 
small business and home com- 
puter markets stepped up this 
week .with' the European 
launches of a series of ad- 
vanced computers from Atari 
and Commodore. 

Commodore's Amiga, 
which has become well known 
for its dazzling array of colour 
and sound capabilities, is the 
most expensive of the new- 
comers at an expected £1500. 

This price is likely to in- 
clude two disc drives, 512k of 
computer memory and some 
as yet unspecified software. 

The.major problem with the 
Amiga, however, is not likely 
to be price - but the lack of 
business software. 

Although it admits that it 
will take sometime before the 
amount of serious software for 
the Amiga comes anywhere 
near that of the IBM PC or 
even Apple's Macintosh, 
Commodore says that a num- 
ber of business software pack- 
_ s will be ready for -the 
Amiga when it starts shipping 
to the UK in June. 

An attachment which al- 
lows the Amiga to use soft- 
ware written for the IBM PC 
will be available later in the 
year. 

Atari, meanwhile, an- 
nounced a series of new and 


powerful machines in its ST 
range— starting at £400 after a 
hefty last min ute price rise 
from £300. ' 

The 52QSTM entry level 
cqmputer.which will have 
51 2k of computer memory, 
can be plugged into a televi- 
sion set and has sockets for 
disc drives and printer drive 
connection. It will also include 
a mouse controller and a 
picture-style command sys- 
tem similar to Apple's Macin- 
tosh computer. 

in another last minnte 
change of mind the company 
has decided not to launch a 
version of this model with a 
built-in computer disc drive. 
At the top of the range is the 
£800 Atari 1040STF — which 
includes one megabyte of 
computer memory, a built in 
720k high-capacity disc drive 
and black and white high- 
resolution computer monitor. 
This machine could be of 
some worry to Apple — which 
launched its one megabyte 
Apple Macintosh Plus with a 
price tag of more than £2,000 
— only a few months ago. 

While the Atari machine 
has nowhere near the software 
base of the Apple offering, and 
so far cannot hook up to the 
same types of business sys- 
tems, Atari says it is working 
hard on remedying both fee- 
tors.

Games that can fool bosses 


By David Guest 
Ever since one particular flight 
simulator computer game be- 
came the litmus test of wheth- 
er a computer was truly 
compatible with the IBM PC 
it has been obvious that 
personal computing at work 
need not be an overwhelming- 
ly serious business. 

Sure enough software sup- 
pliers have come up with 
games that owners of business 
micros can play. Though they 
cannot match the huge range 
of choice of games available 
for home computers they cov- 
er much of the same ground. 

Before the days of business 
PCs it was considered almost 
fraudulent to play games on a 
company's computer — the 
player was after all appropriat- 
ing machine time for frivolous 
purposes. 

This attitude has moved on 
in a slightly modified form to 


the level of the personal 
computer and so a new gener- 
ation of recreational software 
has been developed to disguise 
the feet that the eager comput- 
er user at work is in fact lost in 
a world of game playing. 

The pioneer of such decep- 
tive computer games in the 
UK is a West Country firm. 
Microdeal, where its programs 
give the user a chance to 
display a business-like screen 
in the middle of a game of 
backgammon at the touch of a 
single key. When the lurking, 
and presumambly more se- 
nior management ,-has depart- 
ed it is equally easy to return 
to the point where the game 
was left. 

Microdeal admitted, how- 
ever, that its own staff was 
banned from using the dum- 
my device at work 

For the bone idle who wish 


to peer into space while giving 
an appearance of industrious 
concentration at the computer 
screen there is a package called 
Look Busy from a Texas- 
based company called Fake 
Software. 

This appears on screen to be 
a foil scale integrated business 
package working away but 
actually requiring no attention 
from the user. 

Programs known as desktop 
organisers can also include 
games that can quickly be 
banished from the screen 
though they tend to be of the 
more worthy mental stimula- 
tion type. But all these games 
lack the courage of their 
convictions— encouraging the 
view that computing is in 
some strange way a furtive 
activity. Where is an executive 
toy intended to be placed if 
not on a desk in plain view? 


Industry 
may draw 
blank on 
tape levy 

By Matthew May 


The proposal by the Govern- 
ment to introduce a 10 per 
cent levy on the price of blank 
audio tapes raises some inter- 
esting questions about blank 
cassettes purchased purely tb 
record home computer pro- 
grams 

The levy, which is expected 
to work out at an average of 10 
pence per tape, has been 
suggested as a way of compen- 
sating musicians and the 
record industry for the loss dt 
income from the widespread 
home taping. 

Though the copying of 
home computer software is 
said to be fast becoming as 
much of a problem as in the 
record industry the current 
plan does not include any 
compensation for software 
firms. 

As it is impossible to tell 
what blank tapes will be used 
for at the time of- purchase, 
home computer owners are 
likely to be paying a levy to the 
music industry for their blank 
cassettes. 

Software firms are not, how- 
ever, planning to lobby the 
Government tor a share of the 
proceeds from the levy, esti- 
mated at around £5 million 
per year. The Federation 
Against Software Theft 
(FAST), which says it repre- 
sents about 70 per cent of the 
companies producing home 
software.is totally against the 
concept of a levy because. says 
FAST coordinator Brian 
Hay, they see the levy as “a 
licence to copy". I 

Unlike the music industry 
some software firms have 
been able to introduce mea- 
sures to prevent the copying of 
home computer software but 
they are frequently a consider- 
able annoyance to the genuine 
purchaser. 

Programs stored on cassette 
tape are typically only a few 
minutes long and special short 
tapes, ranging from five to 15 
minutes in length, have been 
produced for computer 
enthusiasts.One partial solu- 
tion to the problem could be 
to exempt tapes of less than 1 5 
minutes though standard 
length tapes are also used to 
record several programs.

computer fraud are often 
hampered by the reluctance of 
companies to admit that 
crimes have occured, fearing 
the effect that puWcfty 
might have on the 
organization's credfoffity.

9 Sharing ideas wffl be 
easier for some Soviet and US 
scientists conducting joint 
research projects if fne Kremlin 
approves the first official 
computer link between the 
superpowers. The data ex- 
change would allow research- 
ers to bypass distance, time 
and bureaucratic barriers, said 
Murray TuroH. a computer 
scientist at the New Jersey In- 
stitute of Technology, who 
developed the idea. He said in- 
formal computer 
networking began fast summer 
between about 12 US and 
Soviet scientists in a variety of 


fields that led the Russians 
and some US people to realize 
this would be a way to not 
only carry on exchanges, but 
joint research. 

■ Deutsche Bundespost 
has announced a nationwide 
telemetry project that will 
enable the meter signals to be 
transmitted digitally without 
interfering with voice traffic. 
The project will also allow 
other uses to be evaluated 
including announcement 
systems, emergency alarm 
systems, and remote con- 
trol of air conditioning and traf- 
fic signals. Network 
equipment for the project is be- 
ing supplied by the British 
firm Racai MHgo. The 
Bundespost plans to install 
the system in every local ex- 
change area eventually. 

The service will cost about £ 20 
for a connection and £1 a 
month rental. It is similar to 
British Telecom's Bitstream 
service that began trials of 
automatic meter-reading 
two years ago. 

■ Fujitsu, Japan's top com- 
puter group, has denied a re- 
port originating in West 
Germany that it would stop 
making computers compat- 
ible with IBM systems. The 
Japanese group is the 
world's leading producer of 
IBM-compatible systems, ft 
also supplies them to Siemens 
of Germany and Amdahl of 
the United States. 

The West German report 
had alleged that Fujitsu was 
having trouble making IBM- 
compatibles because of a dis- 
pute it had with the US 
group about software. IBM has 
accused Fujitsu of pirating 
its software.

Anew 
line on 
the spoken 
word 

By Martin Banks 
There have been increasing 
noises recently about transla- 
tion machines. The Japanese 
are even said to be developing 
a telephone that can translate 
the spoken word. The caller 
speaks Japanese into one tele- 
phone and from out of anoth- 
er, presumably somewhere 
else in the world, comes 
; spoken English — or vice- 
versa. 

Far-fetched? In the short 
i term, yes. The computer and 
j software needed to cope with 
not only on-line word transla- 
tion but also the problems of 
i grammar and syntax that will 
I work with both s perch recog- 
1 nition and synthesis has not 
been built yeL But there is 
nothing wrong with the the- 
ory. 

Take the Japanese phone 
again. The chances are that a 
translating telephone would 
be used primarily for business 
calls. That, by definition, 
means that the words spoken 
would be a limited sub-set 
vocabulary, specifically geared 
to business needs and 
■ terminologies. 

There are precedents which 
demonstrate that when a light- 
ly defined and limited vocabu- 
lary is used translation can 
become a relatively simple 
test 

One of the oldest precedents 
came from the US tractor 





company, Caterpillar- Its trac- 
tors sol'd worldwide, which 
posed an expensive problem 
for the company. Translating 
the essential repair and main- 
tenance manuals into many 
different languages was both 
expensive and risky. There 
was always the danger that, 
like the archetypal instruc- 
tions which come with a 
foreign consumer product, the 
translation would prove to be 
incomprehensible. 

Caterpillar’s solution was to 
develop a specific English 
vocabulary geared to main- 
taining tractors. It found it 
could get this vocabulary 
down to about 850 words and 
it found it cheaper and more 
efficient to teach non-English 
speakers this sub-set than to 
translate the manual. 

Such a total number of 
words may seem small yet it is 
ideally configured for the 
needs of computer translation.

Most individuals have a -vo- 
cabulary of several thousand 
words yet often get by with 
just a few hundred in day-to- 
day life. 

In any business environ- 
ment the vocabulary often 
gets smaller and, more impor- 
tant, more specific in the 
meaning of individual words. 
For example, taking the word 
credit co have any more than 
one meaning could make a 
nonsense of accounting prac- 
tice. * - - 

This means that computer 
translation system's can be- 
come quite feasible. Indeed, 
working with a well-defined 
vocabulary geared toa specific 
business overcomes the major 
problem of such systems. 
Translation of individual 
words is one thing, but the real 
problem is coping with gram- 
mar and syntax. 

The different constructions 
of language*; make computer- 


based translation systems far 
more difficult than amply 
substituting wards. Eaar lan- 
guage would need its own 
program to cope with their 
differences- 

For example, the construc- 
tion of French is different 
from German, where whole 
sentences are put into one 
word where the tense, and so 
the sense, rests in the last 
Syllable. 

•. The all-purpose translation 

system that can cope 'With ibis 

is a long way off The busin e ss 
system, or more specifically a 
number of different business 
translation , systems, are much 
more feasible, though they will 
undoubtedly cause problems 
and misnnderstandings at 
first

torture system up in the sky on

Education Correspondent 
Microcomputers . have been 
introduced into English and 
Welsh classrooms on the 
cheap. Though . a secondary 
school has, on average 10 
micros and Britain, is thought 
to lead the world in the idea of. 
microcomputer use in educa- 
tion, the hardware has been 
introduced at minimum cost. 

Compared with French 
schools, for example. British 
schools have a thin spread of 
micro-computeis and many 
children probably have little, 
contact with them. 

. The Government has spent 
£20 million on hardware and 
peripherals and £23 '■ millionr 
over five years on. the Micro-: 
electronics Education Pro- 
gramme, which is being killed 
at (he end of March and which 
has done invaluable work 
preparing software for schools 
and training teachers. 

It will be replaced by the 
Microelectronics Support. 
Unit, with less funding at a 
much lower level land with a- 
narrower brief. .This unit will 
not even be in place by April 
and wiU probably not function 
until the autumn, so for a long 
time there wfll be little support 
for teachers and local authori- 
ties. 

But there is good news in 
one area of the country; 
Letchworth, Hertfordshire, 
where Education 2000, the 
educational initiative 
launched in J 983. is proposing 
to revolutionize .bow children 
learn. Centra! toitsthinJang is 
the new technology. 

The Letchworth. project, de- 
signed as the forerunner for 
others throughout tbe coun- 
try, aims essentially to retain 
all the teachers in the town's 
six secondary schools. This 
means that 250 teachers at 
four comprehend ves and two 
independent boarding schools 
will join together from Sep- 
tember to rethink tbe curricu- ; 
lum completely. , \ * - V. 

The initiative is novel. .not

only for combining the private 
and maintaining sectors in 
this way, but also because it is 
independent of the State appa- 
ratus-anti trying to innovate 
'cm an ambitions scale. So for 
the project has been promised 
£i milli on over four years so 
that it can increase the staff in 
nil six schools by about lOper 
cent This wffl give every 
member of staff 40 days off 
over two years for retraining. 

Education 2000. launched 
by a group of dissatisfied 
educationists to prepare chil- 
dren for life in the 21st 
century, is worried about the 
number of children who leave 
school completely unprepared 
'for the world about them. Its 
president is Basil de Ferranti, 

chairman of Fer rant i and 

MEP for Hampshire. 

Co-chairmen of the trustees 
are Sir Biyan Th waites, for-

Christoper Wysoch-Wright, 
chairman of Wrightson-

The projects director is 
John Abbott, former head of

Mr Abbott said: “We are 
moving towards the stage 
where we are saying. let’s put 
in a number of schools enough 
word processors for every 
pupil to have access when they 
want todo composition work. 
That would include writing 
essays, reports and using the 
word processor for collabora- 
tive exercises.” -• 

His longterm aim is that 0 
there should be one computer 
to every seven, eight or nine 
students. He is tafiting to 
computer companies about a 
special package deal for tbe 
Leichwonh project; once he 
has chosen a system be hopes 
to put the machines into a 
network. 

The new technology is being 
used as a catalyst tor discus- 
sion about the teacher as a 
manager of learning rather 
than as an instructor. With, 
say, 100 terminals in a school, 
teaching can be transformed. 
The teacher can ask the child 
to go and research material A 
and put ir together in a first • 
draft on the word processor. 
Teacher and child will that 
discuss the work. . 

The child may correct, re- 
fine and rewrite it until he or 
she is satisfied enough to have 
it marked. - 

Mr Abbott saw this tech- 
nique working in the. US. in - 
Pnneeton, New Jersey, where 
the children achieved out- 
standing results. There ; was 
one terminal for every nine' 
pupils m a local high sebool 
for 14 to 18 year-olds and tire 
result was that the. staff set. 
fewer essays, but that the-wbrk 
improved dramatically. 

Mr Abbott believes that it ^ 
will challenge the British em- ™ 
phasis on the constant setting- 
of essays, which are marked 
and given back when the child 
is already working on .the next' 
essay. It is rare for a.pmrif to 
re-do anything and the itsuli

Create the nucleus of a brand-new IBM . 
development team In the City. A genuine greenfield challenge 
with vital international implications 


Our client, a leading name in the International 
Capital Markets, has just briefed us on one of 
the most far- reaching IBM development 
projects currently being undertaken in the City. 
For a start, this is a total greenfield project with 
an open brief to develop a global integrated 
International Securities system. The sheer 
scaleof this assignment -with on-ime, real- 
time links with New York. Tokyo and key Euro 
centres - overshadows the majority of current 
'Big Bang' developments. 

This team will not be inheriting someone else's 
systems and mistakes. They are setting out 
with a clean slate and a clear brief to start from 
scratch. This is why this nucleus of experienced

As an army marches on its 
stomach, much of Great Brit- 
ain Ltd depends on the effi- 
ciency or otherwise of the 
distribution . companies that 
serve the networks of industry 
and commerce, ranging from 
the assembly of cars to the 
slacking of supermarket 
shelves. 

v Moving things around in 
. the most -expeditious manner 
possible is big business: about 


£20 billion a year is spent on 
freighting alone and the 
growth in distribution services 
during the past three or four 
years has been steady as 
Britain's economic activity 
has improved. 

It can be a matter of 
delivering chilled - food in 
prime, condition for that ex- 
panding market or completing 
the frozen food chain which 
gets a fish finger to a child's 
plate in perfect condition. It 
can mean ensuring that all the 
components that make up a 
car get to a factory not too fate 
and. equally important so that 
stocks are kept toa minimum, 
not too early. Or it can mean 
seeing a parcel or letter arrives 
at a destination when it 
should. 

While the health of the 
distribution services depends 
on whether the economy is 
doing well, it thrives equally 
on export and import A 
cushioning factor is that the 
retail chain, especially in food, 
has a level of activity which 
lends to hold up during times 
of economic stringency. • 

Nevertheless, this is an 
industry of fierce competition 


-where the weapons of new 
technologies, from specialized 
transport to computer con- 
trols. are used as the levels of 
sophistication spiraL 

Road transport accounts for 
about 95 per cent of the 
movement of freight, with the 
road transport market valued 
at £19-2 billion at the. Jast 
detailed count in 1983. There 
are, the Freight Transport 
Association (FTA) estimates, 
about 500,000 lorries and one 
million lighter transport vans 
involved, with an estimated 
300,000 jobs. 

But British Rail has been 
increasing the appeal of its 
freight services by using road 
transport links to . achieve 
flexible- deliveries from rail 
depots. One cider company 
which built 4l$ own-rail siding - 
to ~ exploit the new system 
saved 25 -per emit on its 
distribution costs, .according 
to British Rail. 

While air freighting is, -in 
percentage terms, a small part 
of the distribution market, it is 
playing a growing ride as the 
demand for fresh fruit and 
vegetables, particularly the 
more exotic varieties, has 
grown. Air freighting was re- 
sponsible for chilled lamb 
from New Zealand to Britain 
in increaang.qiiantififts. 

If all forms of transporta- 
tion. includingthe movement 
of fuels and waterborne trans- 
port, are taken into account, 
total spending is more than 
£40 billion a year. Judged by

On road transport the in-

since climbed to an estimated 
1 10 in 1 984, according to ICC 
Business Ratios 1 There was

an estimated easing to 107 in 
early 1985. 

Owner operators running 
up to. five vehicles still ac- 
count lor 70 per cent of goods 
vehicles on the road 

The trend for years has been 
to cany more goods on fewer 
vehicles as articulated lorries 
up to 38 tonnes have matched 
the needs of the last-changing 
retailing sector. The index of 
carryings by articulated vehi- 
cles has risen from 100 in 1977 
to 1 18 in 1985. 

It is the retailing revolution 
that has probably been the 


biggest factor behind 
distribution's own revolution 
although the sophistication 
increasingly demanded by the 
vehicle manufacturers must 
run it close. 

At one time it was the food 
and grocery manufacturers 
that generated demand and 
delivered to the retailer. The 
upsurge of the big chains has 
led to the retailer creating 
demand thus dictating the 
supply system and shifting 
distribution to central ware- 
houses, either owned by the 
retailer or run for them by 
contractors. It is estimated 
that most big multiples con- 
trol distribution centrally for 
between 60 and 80 per cent of 
their sales volume and this 
trend is still accelerating. 

The same progress bringing 
in similar structural changes is 
now being seen in other 
markets such as hardware and 
DIY, furniture, domestic elec- 
trical appliances from washing 
machines to television sets, 
toy retailing and also pharma- 
ceuticals. 

What could put more lighter 
vans on the road is the new 
trend to squeeze the bigger 
trucks out of city and town 
centres. It will mean more 
depots out of town to break 


loads down for delivery by 
smaller vehicles. That could 
drive up costs to be reflected, 
inevitably, in prices. It is a 
moot point whether a single 
delivery by one large truck to a 
big in-town store is more 
disruptive than multiple de- 
liveries by a fleet of smaller 
vehicles carrying the same 
amount of goods. 

In road freighting many 
smaller companies, with less

than five vehicles, are finding 
it increasingly difficult to 
make a profit, according to 
Key Note, the market ana- 
lysts*. But Key Note believes 
the parcels and small loads 
traffic still has considerable 
growth potential although in- 
creased competition could 
mean lower prices.

port. George White, which

& O subsidiary. 

ICC forecasts a further re- 
vival in haulier's fortunes, 
possibly with sales growth 
exceeding 10 per cent. De- 
mand for services is expected 
to remain high. 

As the prospect grows of 
armchair shopping, using in- 
teractive links to order goods 
displayed on television, a 
harbinger of what the public 
can expect is the delivery 
service offered by 
Homes peed, a venture by 
Pickfords Removals, part of 
the National Freight Consor- 
tium. 

Homespeed's two-man

ances at times, including eve- 
nings and weekends, to meet 
family needs.

The great days of the train, 
when the railways were seen 
as the natural means of mov- 
ing goods around the country, 
have long gone. The greater 
flexibility of road transport, 
helped by an ever expanding 
and improved road network, 
has meant that it now accounts 
for nearly two-thirds of all 
freight movements. 

About three-quarters of that 
traffic is carried by 
manufacturers’, wholesalers' 
and retailers' vehicle fleets. 
The so-called third party dis- 
tribution network ranges from 
thousands of one man opera- 
tions to the giant National 
Freight Consortium, formerly 
the National Freight Corpora- 
tion, which is now owned by 
the employees and one of the 
great privatization successes. 

The NFC operates 13,000 
vehicles from more than 700 
locations in the UK and 
overseas, and in 1984 its 
turnover was more than £562 
million. It includes snch 
household names as British 
load Services and Pickfords. 

Its BRS operations have 
recently been merged with 
those of the SPD group, which 
it acquired from Unilever last 
year. SPD specializes in the 
high street distribution of 
consumer goods, providing a 
common carrier for compatible 
products from different manu- 
facturers destined for the same 
location. 

Every year it makes more 
than two million deliveries to 
125.000 retailers, wholesalers, 
caterers, factories and institu- 
tions, and its customers in- 
dude Whitbread, Van den 
Berghs, Scottish and Newcas- 
tle Breweries and Beefeater 
Inns. It also has management 
contracts with Kelloggs, 
Sainsbnry's, Tesco and Mara. 

SPD accounts for about 
nine-tenths of the NFC turn- 
over, the remainder is repre- 
sented by smaller subsidiaries 
such as Carry care, which spe- 
cializes in consumer goods 
that need extra careful han- 
dling. 

It claims to have been the 
first to develop effective pro- 
tective packing, handling. 


storage and distribution meth- 
ods. ' 

Another subsidiary, CDS, 
specializes in distribution ser- 
vices to the confectionery in- 
dustry. Formerly the transport 
division of Geo Bassett Ltd, it 
now acts as a common carrier, 
delivering 3,000 different 
products to 40,000 customer 
outlets. 

Distribution costs are now- 
estimated to account for up to 
25 per cent of the purchase 
price of a product and conse- 
quently more and more atten- 
tion is being paid to potential 
savings. The formation of the 
Institute of Physical Distribu- 
tion Management reflects the 
increasing use of specialist 
companies that can advise 
manufacturers and retailers on 
the most cost-effective meth- 
ods. 

Manufacturers* own trans- 
port fleets have correspond- 
ingly declined, one reason 
being that the high turnover of 
large supermarkets has made 
traditional distribution meth- 
ods, with a separate vehicle 
from each supply source, imr 
practica) m terms of unload- 
ing. queueing and waiting 

The obvious solution was to 
concentrate deliveries from all 
suppliers into a central or 
regional warehouse so that 
deliveries could be co- 
ordinated. This in turn has 
freed more retail store space 
for display and sales. * 

The jaigon phrase for third 
party involvement is physical 
distribution management 
(PDM). National Carrier!; 
Contract Services, another 
part of the NFC group, offers 
its customers PDM 
“•packages", whereby it takes 
full responsibility for the 
whole distribution process. - 

Among the company's prinj 
cipal customers are Boots* 
Morphy Richards and BMW" 

The biggest incentive to the 
growth of road distribution 
services has of course been the 
expansion of the motorway 
network, from the completion 
of the Ml in 1959 to the near- 
completion of the M25 london 
orbital route.

aware that with an average 12 
to 1 3 per cent aod possibly as 
much as 20 percent or more of 
a product's purchase price 
being accounted for by distri- 
bution costs tbe need for 
efficiency is crucial and the 
scope for savings substantial 

It is the big supermarket 
chains which mostly have 
moved furthest in refining 
distribution systems. In 
searching for savings, many 
have dropped the old systems 
of suppliers delivering to 
stores and have set up their 
own centralized depots where 
the needs of a store are made 
up. 

J Sainsbury, Britain's big- 
gest grocer, has steadily 
moved to the position where 
SO per cent of goods sold 
through its shops are delivered 


through its own depot net- 
work. 

David yuarmby, the board 
director responsible for distri- 
bution at Sainsbury.' said: "At 
one time 10 suppliers would 
have been sending 10 vehicles 
to drop at one store what we 
now send out in one vehicle. It 
is far more efficient, enabling 
us to manage and control our 
stocks more tightly, to carry 
out seasonal planning and to 
respond far more quickly to 
unexpected needs and to 
promotions.” 

Tesco Stores, with 400 out- 
lets of which 110 are 
superstores, has a 24-hour 
stock replenishment system 
under which shelf replenish- 
ment needs are notified over- 
night to depots which then 
supply what is necessary the 
next day. So far all wines and 
spirits are on the system and 
65 per cent of all food lines. 
Overall about 65 per cent of 
merchandise goes through the 
central warehousing system 
leaving scope for other sup- 
plies going direct from suppli- 
ers. Exact requirements cue

supermarkets in retailing with 
electronic point of sale (EPOS) 
systems means stock ordering 
can originate at the tilL British 
Home Stores is one group with 
an at-the-till stock control 
system. 

Studies being made in the 
industry seem to be pointing 
to retailer-con trolled systems 
being nearly twice as efficient 
measured in costs. The actual 
job may well be done by the 
growing number of specialist 
companies that can be linked 
with a retailers control system 
and meet its specific needs. 

An example is the Sainsbury 
distribution centre at Yate, 
Bristol serving an area 
stretching from the Midlands 
to the South-west as well as 
South Wales. This is managed 
by SPD, now part of the 
National Freight Consortium, 
Britain's biggest distribution 
company that also includes 
British Road Services. 

More goods bound for the 
shops also demand specialist 
handling. This includes sensi- 
tive equipment such as micro- 
computers, word processors 
and other audio and video 
equipment. The storing and 
transporting of chilled and 
frozen foods is another spe- 
cialist sector. 

The supermarket chains are 
also seizing a bigger share of 
the growing markets for fresh 
foods such as fruit, vegetables 


Distribution Services, be- 
lieves relatively inexpensive 
microcomputers and hand- 
held terminals will increasing- 
ly make it possible to raise 
genera! standards of 

warehousekeeping- w - the ad- 
vantage of smaller companies. 

Management and organiza- 
tion is another area of oppor- 
tunity, according to Mr 
Stanton. While much of the 
initiative in distribution bad 
passed to retail ere their inter- 
ests are necessarily narrow i 
and specific. So for innovation ; 
the industry would need to 
look to tire transport hirers, i 
the sector dominated by s mall ; 
operators. 

Mr Stanton told a recent 
FTA conference on distribu- 
tion: “I do not believe that big 
is necessarily beautiful or. 
indeed profitable but we do 
need organizations of ade- 
quate size to finance and 
manage technological innova- 
tion. We must be able to 
develop young managers 
skilled in modern 
techniques.” 

Courses in distributed man- 
agement at universities and 
polytechnics should be broad- 
ened, he urged. Equally, the 
industry had to be prepared to 
enhance the status of distribu- 


tion management so young 
managers had the chance of 
accelerated business experi- 
ence.

A growing market 
for fresh foods 


and dairy products like yo- 
ghurt. This calls for large-scale 
distribution systems for such 
products with careful tem- 
perature control all along the 
line. 

Among the temperature- 
control specialists are Chris- 
tian Salvesen, Frigoscandia, 
Uni gate’s Wincanton and' 
Tempco Union as well as j 
SPD. 

' While some in the industry 
have been worried at the 
swing to centralized distribu- 
tion, which has also spread to 
Debenhams among others in 
the department store sector, 
Mr Quannby at Sainsbury 
maintains that retailer-contrcd 
domination of distribution 
networics is not inevitable. 

The information technology 
revolution creates a potential 
for both suppliers’ distribu- 
tion networks and the distri- 
bution companies, be says. 

To achieve the real benefits 
in total distribution systems 
from supplier factory to the 
store shelf needed enormous 
investment both in computer 
software and management ef- 
fort to market and implement 
it, he believes. This offers 
potential for larger distribu- 
tion companies to develop 
systems for smaller suppliers 
and smaller retailers or groups 
of retailers.

The historic decline in impor- 
tance of the .railways as a 
goods carrier has all too 
frequently been accelerated by 
the actions of the rail unions 
either on their own behalf or 
in support of an industrial 
dispute affecting one. or other 
of their principal customers. 
When coal had to be trans- 
ferred .to road distribution 
during the miners’ strike it 
seemed that the whole flight 
network might fall victim to 
misguided ideology. 

«. More recently, this newspa- 
per and its sister publications 
have been “blacked" by the 
NUR and ASLEFas a show of 
solidarity with the dismissed 
print workers; the resulting 
loss of business is about one 
third of the annual revenue of 
£27 million earned from news- 
paper distribution. . 

. This sort of action has 
- created - the impression' that 
the shrewd businessman 
would he well advised to put 
hk faith in motorways and 
private enterprise, and to 
abandon the British Rail le- 
viathan. • 

The fightback has inevfta- 
bty been, and still is a tough 
one. British Rad's new philos- 
ophy recognises the -advan- 
tages and flexibility that road 
transport offers, particularly 
over short distances. It is now 
concentrating on its own 
strength, namely the consider- 
able cost advantage of bulk 
rail haulage over medium to. 
long distances. ’ 

The new Speedlink service, 
employs . a fleet of freight ~

In Em-ope the express parcels 
and courier industries are a 
relatively new idea. It was the 
United States that first real- 
ized the importance of speed in 
delivery, an idea taken up by 
TNT, the Australian transport 
knap, when it introduced its 
Overnite nationwide next-day 
delivery service as recently as 

i m 

The move shocked the Post 
Office into action and its 
Datapost division is now fight- 
ing back to the extent when h 
expects to become the second 
largest force in the express 
market within two years. With 
2,600 Post Offices accepting 
small packages, they have no 
reason to 6riL 

BR, with its Red Star opera- 
tion. is also moving to compete 
directly with the private firms 
whose collection and delivery 
facilities have a distinct edge 
over BR’S requirement that 
easterners take their packages 
to the station. Hues is chang- 
ing, bat Red Star does still not 
have a totally nationwide net- 
work. 

The privately-owned com- 
panies have invested huge 
amounts of money in their 
infrastructure, with large 
fleets of distinctively-livened 
vehicles, a network of modem, 
regional depots and a big, 
expensive central sorting nut 
where line-haul vehicles from 
every part of the UK arrived to 
disgorge their toads for sorting 
in a middle-of-the-night oper- 
ation. 

Sophisticated, computerized 
machinery sorts the parcels in 
minutes, speeding them on 


A supersonic postman 


their way to delivery anywhere 
in the UK before midday. 

This equipment, and the 
large number of people in- 
volved in such a nationwide 
operation, is not cheap. “Rates 
wifi harden ora: the next 
year,*’ says Alan Jones of 
TNT. “because costs are con- 
stantly rising as we invest in 
better equipment and more 
sophisticated systems." Far 
from this driving customers 
away the better services of- 
fered attracts more business to 
the giants, at the expense of 
then smaller brethren. 

Lex Wilkinson believes that 
a process of rationalization 
will continue, but again the 
importance of investment in 
better facilities is acknowl- 
edged. “There is a strong move 
towards the premium services 
offering guaranteed delivery 
times," says Geoff Barlett of 
Lex Wilkins on. 

Although the UK domestic 
market is hnge, some esti- 
mates potting It at about £1 
billion a year, it is on the 
international front that size 
really comes into its own. Both 
the express parcels and the 
“pure" courier industries are 
growing apace, with compa- 
nies such as DHL staying way 
out in front of the pack in the 
latter. 

Traditionally there have al- 
ways been two basic sides to 
the international express ser- 
vices — parcels, which contain 
dutiable items and are there- ! 


fore subject lo customs decla- 
ration, and documents, which 
are not Most companies have 
tended to separate the two, 
principally for practical rea- 
sons. A cornier bag with 
dutiable items needs extra 
documentation, and more time, 
to dear whereas documents 
can be whisked through in 
minutes. 

This extra work and tune 
means that dotiables are nor- 
mally charged at a higher rate, 
about £15 to £20 on average, a 
lucrative source of income fen- 
the carriers. As Federal Ex- 
press, a large American par- 
cels carrier with a burgeoning 
European business, has just 
abolished this surcharge, it 


remains to be seen whether echoed t 
other courier companies will courier < 
follow suit. t0

CRICKET: THE NEED FOR ONE MAN'S COURAGE AND ANOTHER'S INSPIRATION 


England count 
on Botham 


and Willey for 
restoration 


From John Wt -dcock, Cricket Correspondent. Trinidad 


"To sum it up." said David 
Gower here ycsitf'day. “we've 
somehow got tc §ei through 
tomorrow mom ig, perhaps 
losing onlv one wicket. We are 
all or the 'same thinking. The 
match can still be won." 

There was not much else 
England's captain could saj 
on an intermittently rainy rest 


toss). England gave them- 
selves “a hard climb back". 

When the West Indies then 
gained a first innings lead ol 
22}. England were looking for 
400 in their second and. on a 
pitch showing signs of wear, 
that was an awful lot. It is 34 
innings and 10 years since

which might well exercise

day of the second Test match. 
With seven wickets standing 
England are 55 runs behind 
and the West Indian fast 
bowlers will be fresh for the 
fray. 

Alter being bowled out on 
the first day for only 1 76 on 
what Gower thought was “a 
good wicket for balling" (he 
would have chosen to take 
first use of it had he won the 


he is much respected for iL 

When on Sunday evening 
he pointed his bat at Marshall 
for trying to belittle him in 
from of the crowd. Marshall 
knew he had been put in his 
place. And when play resumes 
today no one will have made 
more of a point on using the 
rest das for restoration than 
Willey.' 

Lamb too. in his much 
more extroverted way. will be 
fighting it out. Yet if England 
are to have much chance of 
leaving the West Indies any- 


Therc are those who believe 
Botham needs dropping from 
the Test side, because of the 
way he is bowling and the fact 
that he is not gelling the runs 
he should. His last 1 2.4 overs 
on the ground here have gone 
for 1 15 runs, and even Gower, 
who finds him fairly 
unbiddable 1 am afraid, must 
know that the time has come 
to give Ellison, not Botham, 
the new ball. 


Botham simply wastes it by 
bowling so short, usually with 
two long legs as though every- 


irue. too. that the majority of 
his greatest match-winning 
achievements have been in 
England, and that a pitch on 
which the fast bowlers are 
keeping it low is not made for 
someone who is at his best 
hitting the ball “on the up". 

Rumours are abroad as to 
the future touring plans, as- 
suming they continue to be 
selected, of Botham and 
Gooch, prompted not least, 1 
imagine, by the prospect of 
having to spend the best part 
of five months in India. 
Pakistan and New Zealand in 
the winter of 1 987-88. 

In Gooch's case he has no 
wish, either, to be constantly 
paraded as a pariah. It is 
always he who went to South 
Africa — never Willey or 
Emburey or Thomas or any of 
the others — but always Gooch 
and Co.

Wouldn't it be nice if I was 
wrong? I'm *4 much an Ian 
Botham fan. you see. But it 
seems, from this Test match 
which, so far. has been a 
personal disaster for Botham, 
that the man has changed. He 
has changed from being an over- 
reacher, an oier-acbiever. into 
someone who is merely orer-the- 
top. 

His howling with the new ball 
on the first day of the second 
Test was beyond belief- He 
strode out apparently to hijack 
the bowling, promptly set a field 
for the bad ball and bowled long 
hops. Not every motoring bat is 
a junkie for the hook like the 
extraordinary Hilditch. Haynes 
and Greenidge rolled their 
wrists and smacked him all 
along the floor to the fence and 
they could harc done so all day 
without giting a chance. 

In that first spell he bowled 
five overs for 39 which was "a 
fair reflection of their worth", as 
e*en the sober Trinidad Guard- 
ian said. His first nine overs cost 
64. which would have been 
shaming in one-day cricket. Oh. 
b4 for no wicket, that is. 

And his behaviour would have 
been shaming to a player in line 
for the man of the match award. 
He kicked the ball 30 yards in 
anger, he publicly harangued a 
player for conceding overthrows 
(wasting runs! — he's a fine one 
to talk, wc all thought) and he 
yelled and made wild gestures at 
his captain when instructions to 
cut nut the long hops caused him 
to bowl a half-volley that was 
straight-driven for four. 


His record on the tour so far 
has been dreadful - and yet his 
practice record has been worse. 
He has always been a lucky 
player, but one is reminded of 
(he Gary Player dictum: “And 
you know what? The harder I 
practice, the luckier I get." Yet 
Botham seems not to have 
noticed. 

When Botham was a lad of 20 
he could genuinely live it np all 
night, skive off practice and then 
go out and take a hatful of 
wickets- But he is an old fellow 
now, coming to the eod of his 
career, and you cannot rely on 


strength and eye and inspiration 
at the age of 30. You need guile, 
you need intelligence. 

’Botham's batting has simi- 
larly been dreadful so far. He 
seems incapable of settling down 
at the crease: he seems only to 
think in terms of the cameo 20. 
That splendid 18 he scored in 
seven balls against Australia 
last summer was terrific and 
right in the context of that game: 
hut that seems now to be his idea 
or the perfect innings. He 
doesn't look as if be expects to 
slay in long. 

It is as if he believes all the 
hype and nonsense of his agent. 
Tim Hudson: as if be truly sees 
himself as “a great British 
hero". He struts on to the stage 
as a star, no longer as a 
professional sportsman. .As if 
the scriptwriter has written in 
his sixes and bis wickets and his 
air-punching celebrations, and 
all he has to do is look cool and 
go through the motions. 


Ah, he is such a marvellous 
man to watch, and it is desperate 
sluff to watch him act like a 
Mike Yarwood impersonation of 
himself, and to set such store by 
such things as the wickets of 
Patrick Patterson, as be creeps 
inch by statistical inch towards a 
new world record for Test match 
wickets. 

When the last long hop has 
been caught on the square leg 
fence, and the record finally 
achieved, he will, perhaps, go on 
to Hollywood. But it seems that 
in his mind he is already there: 
negligent of team requirements 
and destructive on team spirit. 
Players commented on the dif- 
ference between the spirit of the 
tour last winter in India and this 
one - and they put it down to the 
long shadow of Botham. Botham 
acts like a star with a right to 
strut and bully and make an 
utter fool of himself ... and he 
must take a healthy slice of the 
blame for the parlous state 
England are now in in this Test 
match. One hopes this matters 
to him. 

Botham has a way of defying 
his critics and 1 would love to be 
defied today. But what real hope 
can one bold out for a strutting! y

either Harlequins or Leicester, 
who play their delayed quarter- 
final at ihe Sioop Memorial 
Ground on Saturday week. 

The other semi-final is even 
more confused: Nottingham. 
Wasps or Blackheath will play 
the winners of ihe quarter-final 
between London Scottish and 
Gloucester, also due on Sat- 
urday week. The fourth round

Wasps will not be staged until 
Saturday week and the sub- 
sequent quarter-final against

the Easier holiday period, prob- 
ably on March 29. 

Bath have been away in their 
three cup games this season, at 
Orrell. Moseley and London

semi- finalists to be known. Last 
season, before their successful 
defence against the Welsh at 
Twickenham, they were away at 
Sale and Gloucester. “It would

The demands of the cup have 
had their effect upon the selec-

will play Paris in the annual 
encounter at the Jean Bourn 
Stadium in Paris this Saturday. 
Cooke, the Harlequins flanker, 
would normally lead London 
but Harlequins will be making 
final dispositions for the match 
against Leicester and the po- 
sition remains open. 

It is hoped drat the two cities 
match will now be played each 
year on the morning of the 
international between England 
and France. Wasps dominate 
London's selection since their 
scheduled opponents this week 
are US Portsmouth but it is nice 
to see that ChevaL the Askeans

Late tests for Keyes and Kiernan 


A decision on the fitness of 
Keyes, the Ireland stand-off 
half, and Kiernan. the centre, for 
the game against Scotland on 
Saturday at Lansdowne Road 
may not be taken until the Irish 
training session in Dublin on 
Thursday. Both will be exam- 
ined in Cork tomorrow, but 
unless the diagnosis proves 
conclusive the players will be 
asked to travel - to Dublin on 
Thursday morning 

Keyes has a 50-50 chance of 
recovering from a hamstring 
twinge. Kiernan is more doubt- 
ful with a groin strain. 

Jim Donaldson, the chairman 
of selectors, said:" Both John 


By George Ace 

Hewitt and the Ulster out-half. 
Ian Brown, will join the squad in 
Dublin on Thursday morning. If 
Keyes is unfit Brown will be on 
the bench as a replacement tor 
Tony Ward, and Hewin will 
lake" over in the centre from 
Kiernan."' 

Keyes gained his first cap. 
against England at Twick- 
enham. and made a satisfactory 
debut but to the majority of 
Irish supporters, the selectors 
apart. Ward is still something 
special. While Keyes would be 
decidedly unlucky if he has to 
withdraw, optimism will in- 
crease if Ward appears after an 
absence of two years.

This step, which recalls an 
occasion in 1978 when players

will come as a surprise to few 


players to the extent that Mr

“There is a great concern that

The communique said 
Williams' condition was “sta-

Other dubs who will dispute

appearance are Widnes. Leeds 
and Oldham. Widnes and Leeds 
will be sick and tired of each

Wigan will be confident of

With three weeks to go before 
the Boat Race on March 29, 
Oxford University lost their 
Reading Head ofthe River title 
by nine seconds to London 
University on Saturday (Jim 
Railion writes). The university 
had made big positional changes 
in their crew last week, and 
brought in Graham Jones, the 
Australian international, for the 
fourth year running. 

Oxford have a hard week 
ahead of them under Sieve 
Royle, iheir coach, at 
Pangboume before being 
handed over next week to 
Daniel Topdski; the Tideway 
genius. The Iasi two weeks 
should be hill of interest, with 
no doubt a little gamesmanship 

Bruce Philp. the Oxford presir 


deni, seems unperturbed by the 
Reading result. “Reading was 
not a ted row considering the 
changes and Graham Jones’s 
confirmed selection only Iasi 
Thursday night. We are not used 
to . racing at the high raie 
demanded on Saturday. The 
.boat felt powerful but under- 
standably a bit rough at. the 
cdges".If. however. Phi Ip and his 
crew wish to make ii ji 
successive, wins in the Boat 
Race, they will have to be 
conditioned to whatever rale is 
necessary . 

Cambridge went down to the 
Tideway and met skilful ad- 
versaries itf the British light- 
weight eighl. Tn.a series of rows, 
they and the lightweights ap- 
peared to be more or less-even,. «

still rankles, as does defeat to 
Athens two years later. This is

of his incentive for possibly 
going for the two-top medal in .

admitted to' Ovett to Los 
Angeles that “we’re getting too 
old for this!” • 


His winning time of 7mfo 
54J2sec, achieved after burst- 
ing past Dave Lewis on the 
last lap, did two things for 
him. “It confirmed that ( can 
mix it with the long-distance

said. “The 5,0(ES is now not

directors whooped with joy 
yesterday when they heard the

Their home game against a 
struggling first division dub.

a golden opportunity to reaef? 
the semi-finals after many jcd»i 
. in the cup wilderness. They 
earned their luck by a splendid 
performance on Sunday, in 
which their pack took on and 
mastered a fierce onslaught 
from the ruthless Warrington 
forwards. 


If the trainfog goes satisfac- 
torily over the next three . 
mouths he might just .possibly; 
he concedes, consider the 
5,000 for Stuttgart, though he 
knows there is a substantial . 
difference between a stogie

Palmer on 
his way 
after poor 
results 

By Nicholas Harting 

Bauny Palmer, the coach who 
took Portsmouth to the.threds- 
old of three trophies in bis fixst 
season but failed to win any. of 
them, . has resigned. Palmer's 
decision came in the aftermath 
of Portsmouth's $5-90 home 
dcfem^BirmingbaniBuneism 
Friday’s decisiye Carlsberg Na- 
tional Championship quaner- 
_fi^ptey*ff; which left the dub_ 
without ineobiqf place at the 
.finals the weekend after next. 

Alan Cunningham, the 
American player dispensed with 
by Palmer earlier in the wa go n 
because he had more than his 
quota of Americans, over’! 
temporarily. : 

Portsmouth’s failure to qnal- 1 
ify meant no vindication for the 
huge outlay by the dub’s chair- 
man, John Deacon, on what 
amounted to an entirely new 
team purchased in the close 
season. It was after Deacon- had 
bought up the franchise of 
Telford and moved the Mid- 
lands dub to the south coast 
following liquidation that . io 
new players arrived with the 
best contracts in the country. 

Undo- Palmer; who had, 
according to huh, “unquestion- 
ably the best coaching job in 
Great Rimin’’, the team td- 
. innately proved that there was 
truth in the maxim that money 
does not necessarily buy suc- 
cess. 

The team flourished at first, 
remaining unbeaten for the first 
three months of the season, but 
defeat in the Prudential Na- 
tional Cup semi- final against 
Team Pofycdl Kingston was 
followed by six league reverses 
and. a . deterioration in the 
relationship between Palmer 
and his players, most noticeably 
his star import Cohn Irish, who 
had his < own strong feelings 
about bow be wanted to play. 

The former coach of Crystal 
Palace (who reached the Euro- 
pean Cup quarter-finals under 
him). Painter, aged 36. from 
Detroit, is uncertain whether he 
wOl stay in coaching, allbough 
he does know be wants to move 
back to London. 

“I haven’t been a happy man 
in the past few months.” he 
admitted. *Tm very sad I wasn’t 
able to do a better job 

“I let mysdfdowiL I didn’t do 
as wdl as I could have' done. 
Maybe 2 was too friendly with 
some of the players and that 
afTected my judgement at tunes. 
But 1 was not happy with the 
Mend of older and youn^r 
players; they didn’t mix as well 
as 1 hoped they would.'* 

Portsmouth probably contrib- 
uted to their own failure by 
announcing both at 
Wednesday’s second - leg with 
Birmingham and at die decisiye 
third leg that Wembley tickets 
wereon sale for titer supporters. 

Birmingham, who. began 
Wednesday’s game by leaping to 
a 17-0 lead, left their, scoring 
blitz until the second half of 
Friday’s game. lt was then that 
they sank !3 points without 
reply, with Hays (28 points). 
Shoulders (26) and Donaldson 
(20) prominent, to leave Ports- 
mouth — and Palmer— chasing 
a lost cause. ■

A stinging 


by Wasps 

.ByaOmespoodent . 

Durham Wasps took another 
step towards a second Hemeken 
British League tide with two 
comfortable weekend victories. 
Their nearest rivals, Dundee 
Rochets, are seven paints be- 
hind and although the Scottish 
club have three games in hand, 
Durham appear to have an 
caster task in the home straight. 

Durham's 1 1-4 victory 
marked Ayr Brains’ first home 
defeat in 23 League games. In 
January, Ayr had ended 
Durham’s unbeaten h ome se - 
quence of 37 games. The tu rnin g 
point in Sunday’s game came 
just after half way, when, with 
the score tied at 4-4. goalie 
Frank Killen saved Don 
Gibson's penally shot Eighteen 
seconds later, Mike O’Connor 
scored what proved to be 
Durham's winning goal. 

Dundee Rackets appeared ro 
be in a hopeless position when 
they fefl six goals behind at 
home to MnrrayfiekL At that 
point, however, Gany linger 
took a hand. His eight goals

Fare dealt Paul Barton a cruel 
-blow on Saturday and the 32- 
year-old jockey wilt miss the 
Cheltenham Festival for the first 
time in his career. Barton’s 
mount, Angel Bank, fell at the 
sixth fence in the Beech Open 

Novices* Chase at Sandown 
Park, but he escaped injury, 
only to be trodden on by 
another of the runners. 

Initially, he thought his leg 
was only bruised, but on Sun- 
day. he experienced pain, and 
yesterday morning that pain 
became intense. Following X- 
ray examination Barton was 
found to have a tiny crack in one 
of the bones in his leg. 

"I will not have to have my 
leg in plaster, but must return to 
hospital this evening to have the 
leg strapped up.” Barton said. “I 
am bitterly disappointed at 
missing the’Festivai, but hope to 
be back in 1 0 days”. 

Yabis: Paul Barton’s strongly- 
fended mount in the opening 
race of the three-day meeting, 
the Waterford Crystal Supreme 
Novices' Hurdle, will now be 
ridden by Peter Scudamore. 

• Angel Cordero Jun. who 
was trampled by a horse after his 
mount fell during a race at 
Aqueduct on Saturday, has 
undergone surgery for a lac- 
erated liver. A New York 
University Medical Centre 
spokeswoman said that 
Cordero, for many years one of 
America's leading jockeys, was 
in a serious but stable condition. 

Cordero’s mount. High- 
falutin. fell rounding the club- 
house turn during the first race. 
After a few horses avoided 
Cordero. Nolle Pros stepped on 
the Puerto Rican jockey. 

“He’ll be in a surgical imen- ' 
sive care unit for the next three 
days, which is standard.” the 
hospital spokeswoman said.

FOOTBALL: COMPLEX DRAW FOR THE SEMI-FINALS OF THE FA-CUP 

Prospect of all -Merseyside final 


By Stuart Jones, Football Correspondent 


A colourful vision emerged 
from the confusion of 
yesterday's FA Cup semi-final 
draw. On May 10. one end of 
the national stadium could be 
filled by the red of Liverpool 
and the other by the blue of 
Everton. Wembley, in other 
words, could again resemble 
Stanley Park for a day. 

The Merseyside giants have 
overshadowed the rest of En- 
gland during the last decade 
and. by tomorrow night, they 
should each have taken a 
significant step .towards an- 
other collision. Liverpool face 
Watford in a delayed sixth 
round tie at Anfield this 
evening and, 24 hours later. 
Everton take on Luton Town 
in a repias at Goodison Park. 

Although Liverpool have 
not participated in an FA Cup 
final since 1977, Wembley 
became their second home in 
the 80s when they won the 

Edinburgh 
can have 
final say 

By Hugh Taylor 

The city of Edinburgh was' 
given hope yesterday that one ol 
its finest seasons could climax in 
the Scottish Cup final being 
contested b> the capital's two 
dubs. Vesterday's draw for the 
semi-finals paired Hearts with 
Dundee United and Hibernian 
with Aberdeen or Dundee. 

The games are to be played on 
April 12 with Hearts at Hamp- 
den and Hibernian at cither 
Tynecastle or Dens Park, 
depending on the outcome of 
tomorrow’s replay between 
Aberdeen and Dundee. 

It has been a remarkable 
season for the Edinburgh dubs 
after a period of decline. Hearts 
are leading the league and 
Hibernian, who reached the 
final of the Skol Cup, have 
staged another recovery, 
eliminating the Cup holders. 
Celtic, in the quarter-final on 
Saturday.’ 

The Edinburgh clubs have not 
met in the final since 1 8% when 
Hearts won 3-1. However, the 
bookmakers are not as optimis- 
tic as the supporters: they have 
installed Dundee United as- 
favourites to take the Cup with 
Aberdeen second. 

The draw emphasizes the 
swing from west to east of 
Scotland's pendulum oft power. 
It is the first time in IS years 
that the old firm of Celtic and 
Rangers have not been repre- 
sented in the semi-finals. Glas- 
gow supporters realize that it is 
doubtful whether their teams 
can pick up an honour this 
season: they are out of Europe 
and the Scottish and League 
Cups and have slipped almost 
out of contention in the League 
race. 

If they were to fail to win the 
preraierdivision championship, 
ft would be only the third time 
this century that their names 
would be missing from the 
honours’ list. The last lime was 
31 years ago when Aberdeen 
won the League title, Clyde the 
Scottish Cup and Hearts the 
League Cup. The other occasion 
was in 1952 when Hibernian 
woo the League, Motherwell the 
Cup and Dundee the League 
Cup.

Kenny Dalglish decided to 
pick himself last Saturday,

though Dalglish's 35-year-old

The incentive is a semi-final

Salesman." ■ • 

“What happened in Lisbon. 
Trevor?" is the question one 
might well ask Trevor Francis. 
Jt »-as there, last autumn, when 
he refused io go on the bench for 
Sampdoria against Benfiea in 
the Cup Winners' Cop, that 
Francis virtually sealed his fate 
with his club and his manager. 
Fngenio Bersellmi, and in so 
doing probably put himself out 
of *be World Cop. too, 

Francis, outraged that he 
should nnt be picked for the 
Benfiea match, reasoned that if 
he were not considered fit to 
play, then lie was not fit to go on 
the' bench. He watched from the 
stand*. Since then, he has made 
only sporadic appearances for 
the Genoa club, and his days as 
favourite son of tbe President, 
the millionaire ship owner, 
Manfovani. seem to have gone. 

I saw Francis play in the 
return match against Benfiea in 
Genoa, when he was utterly 
miscast as ait orthodox centre 
forward. Since then. I hanks 
partly to the injuries to which he 
is forever susceptible, mostly to 
BersellinFs door hostility, he 
has been ont of the team. 
Berseiiini would not even bring 
him on in the last home match 
against Pisa as a substitute, 
preferring obscure young re- 
serves. 

Francis will definitely leave 
Sampdoria at the end of this 
season, bat Graeme Sonness, 
whose position previously 
looked a little rocky, will almost 
certainly be retained. His state- 
ment that be will consider any 
interesting offers from else-

Juventus. the European 
champions, are considering 
Howard KcndalLthe Everton 
manager, as a possible successor 
to Giovanni Trapattoni, who 
intends to leave at the end of the 
season, according to an Italian 
newspapers. 

Giampiero Boniperti. the 
Juventus chairman, is reported 
by the Gazzcita Dcllo Sport to be 
an admirer of Kendall's 
management style. 

The Turin side have a five- 
point lead in the Italian first 
division, with six games to 
play. Trapattoni said last week 
that he intended to leave

The player-manager, who re-

up for the delayed quarter- final. 
Watford should be unchanged.

Newport County yesterday

Cash the father-figure may 

make all the difference 


By Rex Bellamy, Tennis Correspondent 


Paul Hutchins, Britain s 
team manager, says they have 
“nothing to fear" in their 
second-round Davis Cup tie 
against Australia from July 18 
to 20. He is putting a gloss on 
the fact that in tennis as in 
cricket, the present Australian 
team are by no means intimi- 
dating. It could be a different 
story if, in tbe next four 
months, Pat Cash regains his 
1984 form. But if John 
McEnroe is anything to go by

edge from Cash's tennis ambi- 
tions. 

Britain, promoted to the 16- 
nation world group, could 
hardly have had an easier 
draw. Moreover, they have 
played seven consecutive 
home ties and have at least 
one more to come. “We have 
been lucky", Hutchins says, 
"and must make the most of 
our chance". On the quicker 
surfaces John Lloyd, Jeremy 
Bates and Colin Dowdeswell 
are a good team with respect- 
able records. 


Lloyd has played more Da- 
vis Cup matches than any 
other British players except 
Mike Sangster, Bobby Wilson 
and Tony Monram. Lloyd 
and Dowdeswell have won an 
their five Davis Cup doubles. 

The new boy. Bates, has 
won six of his seven singles 
and. in many ways, is reminis- 
cent of another richly talented 
player who suddenly struck a 
dazzling vein of form in Davis. 
Cup matches. That was Gra- 
ham StilwelL who won 10 out 


victims including Wilhelm 
Bungert and Hie Nastase. 

Bates finds it easier to reach 
a “high" for sporadic Davis 
Cup lies than for regular 
tournaments. "You -train for 
two weeks, focus on two 
matches and then get. advice 
on coun”, he says. "I take my 
time more - put more thought 
into the points". 

When Britain had disposed 
of Spain the draw for the 
quarter-finals was taking 
shape: United States v Mexico 
or West Germany, Britain v 


Australia. Yugoslavia ' v 
Czech osia via and Swedes v 
Italy or Paraguay. How odd it 
is. by the way, that even when 
a Davis Cup tie has been, won 
and lost in two days the teams 
carry on playing. Can you 
imagine the West Indies win- 
ning by 10 wickets and batting 
on? :

call out dnrtag play. It did not 
stop, them hot Arias was also 
unstoppable by that stage and

BvLi 

Education! 


Hodges 


Many schools in England 
and Wales will close down for 
the lunch break on Thursday 
and children win be sent home 
as headteachers take their first 
national industrial action over 
lunchtime supervision ar- 
rangements. 

The National Association of 
Head Teachers, which has 
26,000 members who are 
heads and deputies, yesterday 
advised heads to take this 
action as pan of its campaign 
to secure a nationally - negoti- 
ated agreement on midday 
supervision. Parents were fac- 
ing informed yesterday 

The advice follows an 
NAHT ballot last month in 
which members voted by 60 to 
40 per cent to take a single day 
of industrial action. There 
were smaller majorities in 
favour of closing schools 
down at lunchtime for one day 
a week and for a whole week. 
The association's national 
council is meeting next week 
to give further consideration 
to the campaign. 

Mr David Hart general 
secretary of the NAHT, said: 
The NAHT intends to pursue 
the campaign until its objec- 
tive is achieved and until both 
central and local government 
change their present irrespon- 
sible and intransigent 
attitudes.” 

Sir Keith Joseph, Secretary 
of State for Education and 
Science, has offered £40 mil- 
lion to local education au- 
thorities to pay for "senior 
supervisors”, who may or may 
not be teachers, to look after 
children at midday. Authori- 
ties are bidding for the money; 
some are excluding teachers 
from their schemes, and they 
are offering between £2 to £6 
an hour. 


The ‘greatest show on earth’ 


Chile blasts 


Santiago (Renter) — A 
bomb explosion cut the main 
oil pipeline between Santiago 
and the south of Chile and two 
people were injured in another

police said. 



Huddersfield Choral Society’s choir master, Mr Brian Kay, with some of the officers and the choir, 
dern 


By Sally Brampton 

The Choral Society is to 
HnddersfieM what the Festi- 
val is to Edinburgh and the 
Fair is to Scarborough. 

The society is a timeless and 
Integral part of the town’s 
culture that has been trans- 
ported from the realism of 
provincial folklore into those 
of international celebrity. To 
be a member of the Hudders- 
field Choral Society is regard- 
ed locally as belonging to the 
greatest show on earth. 

It is recognized as demand- 
ing extremes of stamina, 
resiliance and dedication com- 
bined with the mandatory 
■Mpwl voice. Not for nothing 
is the society acclaimed as one 
of Britain’s top three choirs 
alongside The Royal Choral 
Society and Hie Bad Choir. 

Last Right the society cele- 
brated its 150th annimsary 
by performing its ritual reo- 


of the Messiah at the 
[Festival Hall before the 
Prince and Princess of Wales, 
it was merely one more notch 
in its remarkable history. 

Bora out of the region's 
vocal tradition of non-con- 
formist chapel and male voice 
choirs, and madrigal and glee 
dobs, the society grew from a 
series of informal musical 
a Brings in the homes of 
mnsidans, blossoming 
into a more solid creation 
when 16 of them met in the 
Ploagh Inn in Westgate in 
Jnne 1836. 

The original rales included 
the declaration *fm« mr twing e 
were to be held monthly on 
days felling “on or before the 
foil moon** in order to light the 
way of members wanting home 

along the banks of the canaL 

Membership fees of half a 
crown were to be made twice 
yearly and discipline was par- 


amoent with fines of three- 
pence for lateness of np to a 
qnarter of an hour ami six- 
pence for non-attendance, in - 
texicatioD or the nse of 
obscene or abusive language. 

The disdptme has mellowed 
only slightly ova the years 
and there is still a fierce 
determination to main tain 
standards among the choir’s 
32-stroog executive committee 
who fefce their responsibilities 
extremely serioasly. 

Husbands and wives are 
haniwui from meet- 

ings and even members have to 
get special penmsskm to at- 
tend rehearsals. The society’s 
rife -president, Mr Richard 
Barradoogh, recently had his 
knuckles rapped for tinning 
np to sing in a concert withont 
wearing his 25-year service 
badge. 

. The members ayoy nothing 
better an overmght stay, 


which means an opportunity to 
air their rep er to ir e hi the hotel 
bar nutil the early hoars of the 
morning. 

The 230-strong choir have 
to attend at least two-thirds of 
the Friday night rehearsals 


The choir’s permanent coo- 
doctors have inducted the 
cream of the profession. Sir 
Malcolm Sargent held the 
post for 35 years until his 
death in 1967. Today Owain 
Arwd Hughes wields the prin- 


Singer, Brian Say, as 
chorus master. 

As for joining the choir, 
competition is stiff among the 
musical community of this 
Last of die Summer Wine area 
of the Peak District At a 
recent meeting of the vocal 
sab-committee, only one out of 
wght candidates received the 
committee's stamp of approv- 
al.

Third more 
office 


space for 
the Gty 


By Judith Huntley 

The Corporation of the Gty of 
London is to allow another 20 
mflfion sq ft of offices to be built 
in the Square M3e. 

Tins increases by ahnoa a 
third the existing fioorepace to 
meet the demands of the con- 
glomerates fining up ahead of 

m _ J l-i! -TiLa iwuraMnl 


markets ia October. 

The corporation unveiled foe 
drastically amended draft plan 

yesterday which wiR receive full 
approval on Thursday. 

The new draft is a compkte 
reversal of the Corporation's 
previous version winch was 
heavily criticized for not taking 
account oftfae need to maintain 
the dry's rote as an internation- 
al finanrial CCDfitThe mOSt 
rignifiranl diangp, from the 
developers’ point of view, which 
accounts for 20 pa - cent of the 
incre ase in offices, fcthe amount 
of building allowed on a ate. 

The [tot ratio, as it is called, 
has bera increased loan average 
of 5.87 to 1 across tbe whole of 
the City from its current level of 
about 5 to l.This wiS result in 
much larger ■ office, buildings 
which are demanded by the 
recent spate of banking and 
broking mogera, bring buOl on 
the fringes of the Square M3e. 
But the Gty Corporation is 


are hint tn its domain and 
conservation areas will be main- 
tained although they wffi not be 
extended to adjoining areas. 

The Corporation deni es tha t 
its change in policy, away from a 
conservationist and small-scale 
development plan, has anything 
to do with the 10 miBion sq ft of 
offices planned in London’s 
Docklands at Canary Wharf 
The revisions to the plan were 
well under way before that 
hpf»rrv» a possibility, according 
to Mr Michael Cassidy, the 
chair man of the Corporati on’ s 

planning m mmittB e. 

But the Corporation is object- 
ing to plana to extend the 
Docklands Tight Railway from 
Canary Wharf in the Isle of 
Dogs to the Bank underground 
station. That plan has now been 
altered after London Regional 
Transport raised otgections be- 
cause of the congestion it would 
cause. The new proposal would 
tnltp passengers under King 
William Street

Letter from Cairo 



“Where are you 
torch washed its light . 
the inside of tiw old taxi the 
pale, dosiy beam coming to 
rest on my foce. It was jiBi 
possible to make out the 
soldier's foce in the gloom 

outside. •• t 

* Sahafi - journalise I 
replied, and the torch 
snapped off: The foce in the 
darkness lit np m a -some: 
“No proWere ■— of conrae, 
you can go,** he said. “Wel- 
come to Egypt-” . 

After a while, you get used 
to this treatment. In any 
other Arab nation under at- 
tack from internal enemies, 
trying to suppress a mutiny 
among i» ' own security 
forces, the press - especially 
foreign correspondents — 
would be refused permission 
to enter, turned back at the 
airport, summarily deported 
if they twana y ! d to sneak, in 
on a tourist visa. 


It ma^yet come to that in 


Egypt. But for now, there 
actually is a government 
decree ordering me Egyptian 
Army to afford journalists 
protection at all times. The 
officers sometimes even sa- 
lute. 

The soldiers grin sheepish- 
ly when you present them 
with the little white press card 
that the Ministry of Informa- 
tion issues freely to foreign 
correspondents. The Minis- 
try seems happfly to assume 
that every applicant is dedi- 
cated to truth, democracy, 
freedom and the con ti n n ed 
rule of President Hosai 
Mubarak. 

In their way, Egyptians 
seem proud of this. In die 
cavernous interior of the 
ministry bnilding, a crowded 
circular edifice that resembles 
in its arrintectore a sort of 
neo-stalinist Tower of Babd 
on the banks of the Nile, a 
government official shook. 
me warmly by die band. 

“You should go and see the 
damag e on the Pyramids 
Road/* he advised. “You’ve 
already seen it? Yes, Asyut is 
a good Idea— if you go down 
there, you may get interviews 
with radical students, and 
yon must folk to the president 
of the university. Take a 
•pillow on the train — it can be 
-very uncomfortable. Good 
luck.” v : 


-Of course, all things have 
their limits.’ U look the 
Government more, than a 
week to admit that more than. 
100 people had died in the. 
rioting — as. opposition po- 
pes had churned at the tune. 
Burnt least opposition jour- 
. nak had been able to make 
the allegation in the first 
place. 

The Army, too, has not 
always been dedicated, to 
freedom of mfonnatton,, 
When an officer found an 
American television crew 
filming, the surrenderor rebel 
policemen, scan© of them 
being forced to aawi foam 
their compound on their 
hands and knees, he snatched 
their film tape and ordered 
them from fire area. 

• Needless to say, press fitt* 
dom in Egypt is not entirely 
altruistic. The Americans are 
unlikely to' increase . their 
financial pud military tid 
t mfre* they can see with their 
own eyes how seriously 

Mubarak is threatened. 

Many Egyptians are proud 
that thdr country is less 
secretive than the Arab n a* 
irons which so savagely con- 
demned it at the time of the 
Gamp David agreement For 
all its chaos and economic 
collapse and its Mukdborrot 
secret police, Egypt is, a 
western-style democracy 
compared to Iraq or 'Syria or 
Libya. .* . . . : . ..

It was only last year that' 
the official media here lied 
outright m asserting that 
Egyptian troops had rescued 
all the passeng ers of the ' 
EgyptAir Boeing hnacked to 
Malta: in foct, 58 the - 
passengers were kfikd, most- 
ly by Egyptian ArmyJndfcts. 

If this sort of thing happens 
again, we will know r ihat 
Mubarak is in real trouble. -
