to .the value of shares yester- 
day, as . the last obstacle to an 
early cut in interest rates was 
removed.. The Bank of En- 
gland released money figures 
good enough to permit the 
Chancellor tonudge bank base 
raies down feyoptoonc per 
cent, in support of a Budget 
next Tuesday that will prom- 
ise a sixth year of continuous 
economic growth and a fur- 
ther fell in inflation. 

Despite the prospect of 
lower interest rates, the pound 
scored all-round gains, adding 
0.7 to its- trade-weighted ’in- 
dex, giving grounds for hope 
that it has weathered the worst 
of the oil-price storm. Al- 
though caution is the watch- 
word ‘ until - after 1 next 
weekend’s meeting of the Or- 
ganization of Petroleum Ex- 
porting Countries, the 
Government is quietly confi- 
dent that it has succeeded in 
seeing off the attempt by Opec 
to force Britain to Ml in lifre 
and cut oil production. 

The Financial Times 30- 
share Index rose 212 points 
yesterday, to a record 1,326.8. 
The udder FT-SE 100-share 
index also jumped sharply, 
rising 24.9 to 1,597.1. These 
gains followed money figures 
for February showing a 1 per 
cent rise in sterling M3. 

Although this took the rise 
over the past year to 14% per 
cent, well above the 
Chancellor’s original target, 
the figures gave sufficient sign 
of a recent slowdown ' to 
convince the^City that a Cut in 





interest rates of at feast half a 
cent was now . possible, 
ioney market rales eased by 

aithoi^SS^ank of England 
may resist too rapidafaUm 
rates until after the weekend. 

Reassuring figures for ster- 
ling M3 were essential, be- 
cause the Chanceflar will be 
presenting a new target in the 
Budget as a r e affirm ation of 
his. commitment to “sound 
money". He is resurrecting 
sterling M3, for which this 
year’s target was abandoned 
last. autumn, to demonstrate 
the continuity of his financial.

Chancellor’s revenues. Since 
he is determined not to in- 
crease taxes overall, and to ~ 
make modest reductions in 
income tax, he is likely, to 
allow a small rise in public - 
borrowing, above the target 
originally set for 1986-87 of 
only £7% billion. He must 
therefore show the City that 
the monetary side of . his 
strategy remains firm. 

However, this is' to. be a 
“prudent and cautions** Bud- 
get with big income tax cuts 
reserved for 1987. But the 
Chancellor wffl . -use the 
oportunixy to outline his tax 
strategy for the next five years, 
with tire aid of a grera paper 
on personal taxation propos- . 


- mg a radical shake-up of the 
tax treatment of married cou- 
ples. 

: Other riemeuts of tire Bud- 
get are expected to include 

• New measures to boost the 
“enterprise culture” and in 
.particular to stimulate wider 
share owoership through in- 
creased tax incentives. . 

• Increases in excise duties, 
particularly on petrol, where 
the Chancellor may seize the 
oportunity to add more that 
the 5p on a gallon of petrol 
that would be justified by the 
general rise in prices since the 
Iasi election- Inis would help 

- him. to. recoup some of the 
£516 billion to £6 billion lost 
from foiling ofl prices. 

• Further reforms of the 
structure of National Insur- 
ance; following last year’s 
changes 

• Modest increases in person- 
al tax- allowances which are 
Still likely to exceed the mini- 
mum figures of£l 30 a year for 
a single person and £200 for a 
married couple that would 
merely compensate for infla- 
tion. 

• Forecasts for the economy, 
to .be published on Budget 
Day, are little changed since 
last autumn, when the Trea- 
sury was predicting economic 
growth of 3 per cent this year, 
with inflation foiling rapidly 
over the next few months and 
dipping below 4 per cent. 

• In response to the contirra- 
" ing rise in unemployment, a 

further package of small em- 
ployment measures, centring 
on the Jobstart scheme for 
kriweaniers and the existing 
Community Programme.

Thatcher defends 
plans on Trident 



mere than 

, . by 1988, \ Defence 
hfinisiry sources revealed yes- 
terday. - 

The Prime Minister warned 
during Cbmmbns questions: 
“It is absolutely vital that we 
keep our independent nuclear 
deterrent and -it is not a 
deterrent unless it is 
modernized.” - 

Mis Thatcher dashed with 
Mr Neil Kionack, the Labour 
leader, and Mr David Steel, 
the Liberal leader, over her 
rebuff for Mt Mikhail 
Gorbachov’s proposals for the 
removal of intermediate range 
nuclear weapons Sqm Europe. 

She told Mr Kinnock.that 
there was no point in accept- 
ing removal of SS20s to the 
Far East when they could be 
moved back to a place where 
they could be “a menace to 
this country.” 

Earlier, Mr George Youn- 
gs; Secretary of State for 
Defence, bod announced a 
revised figure of £9,869 mil- 
lion for the Trident pro- 
gramme, an increase of £584 
million on last year’s calcula- 
tion. 

But because his estimate 
was based on test June’s 
exchange rate, the latest esti- 
mate would be- about £500 
million cheaper. 

Ministry sources said last 


r rfighlthaj about £50G million 
had already been spent, a 
fe flfag- £1,800 million had 
been- committed and up to 
£2,000 mihion more could be 
committed oyer die next few 
years 

...A. Ministry paper also in- 
formed the Commons Select 
Committee on Defence: “It is 
now assessed that, on average. 

8^b§^ectfmd6400mdhect 
jobs over, the procurement 
period with the figures rising 
to 15,000 direct and 12,000 
indirect in the peak years.” It 
is expected that about 25,000 
will be working on the Trident 
programme by 1988. ' 

^ T^pcak^^focfionj^ 

run from 1988 to about 1992, 
Yesterday’s Ministry report 
to the select committee said: 
“Advance work is proceeding 
towards the future construc- 
tion ofSSBN05, the first of the 
United Kingdom’s four Tri- 
dent-dass submarines. 

. “SSBN06 to 08 will be 
ordered progressively over the 
next few years.” 

. Mr Younger told the House 
yesterday that the key factor 
on Trident expenditure was 
that its total weight on his 
s pe nding programme was less 
than the Toledo programme. 
“It secures- our safety and 
defence" for the future and I 
would have thought most, 
people would regard it as an 
extremely goodprogramme."

Legal action over tin 

_ . mm nFMOW a mr 


The Government could be a 
defendant in legal actions by 
banks and brokers seeking 
damag es against the Interna- 
tional Tin Council, of which 
Britain is a member, after the 
collapse of talks seeking an 
agreed solution to the £900 
million tin crisis (Michael 
Prest writes). ' 

Thaflaad confirmed yester- 
day that it had rejected a 
rescue plan. The London Met- 
al Exchange Said that its plan 


fixed price of i&250 a tonne 
would go. ahead, despite the 
threat man action against it by 
Shearson Lehman Brothers, 
the American brokers, for 
damag es. 

Banks owed £340 million by 
the nC fear that loans to 
other government-backed in- 
ternational organizations 
could be at risk if ITC 
members areabfe to repudiate 
the council’s trading debts. 




Kohl faces 
second 
Flick cash 
inquiry 

From Frank Johnson 
Bonn 

Hie position of Chancellor 
Kohl of West Germany wors- 
ened last right after public 
prosecutors in Bonn an- 
nounced a second — and 
possibly more serious - inves- 
tigation against him for ri- 


latest investigation re- 
lates to answers which Hen- 
Kohl gave in 1984 to a 
committee of the Bundestag 
investigating the “Flick 
Affair”: tax-evading donations 
to political parties by big 
badness. 

Hen Kohl was already be- 
ing investigated by the public 
prosecutors in Koblenz, in the 
Rhiaebrnd Palatinate, for the 
same alleged offence m.coa- 
nectiou with his -replies last 
year to a committee of the 
Land (regional parliament) In- 
vestigating gtmbar payments* 
dining ^ 1970s when 
Hen Kohl was Prime Minister 
of Rhineland Palatinate. 

Both investigations arise out 
of private swimnoases taken 
out by the radical lawyer and 
Green MP, Hen Otto Schfly. 

Yesterday's announcement 
came from Bona because that 
is the local prosecating office, 
which investigates offences 
allegedly committed in the 
area, including the Bundestag. 
This second investigation is 
especially sorions because 
Hen Schfly's charge is that 
55.000DM (just over £17,000) 
was paid by Flick directly to 
Herr Kohl, via his secretary, 
yathw Hum to the CDU via a 
research organization, the 
method alleged in Rhineland 
Palatinate. 

West German politics were 
virtually in a state of suspen- 
sion white the Bonn prosecu- 
tors took two weeks to decide 
whether to act on Hen 
Schfly’s summons. The next 
stage, both in KoUenz or 
Bonn, win be the prosecutors’ 
decisions whether to apply to 
the emits for a triaL 

Politicians- and diplomats 
here believe it will never come 
to that But last night there 
was less certainty. 

It could take months for the 
prosecutors to make their 
dedshm. Bid overshadowing it 
all is the next general election, 
due early in 1

Minister moves to 
calm fears on 
Anglo-Irish deal 


From Richard Ford Belfast 


The Government last night 
attempted to allay Unionist 
alarm over the Anglo-Irish 
Agreement by holding an un- 
precedented press conference 
aimed at ending the secrecy 
surrounding yesterday’s talks 
between London and Dublin. 

While Mr Tom King, Secre- 
tary of State for Northern 
Ireland, insisted that there 
could be no suspension of the 
agreement as demanded by 
Unionists as a precondition 
for talks, he said,significantly, 
that no dale had been fixed for 
the next meeting of the joint 
ministerial conference. 

By releasing a two page 
communique of his talks at 
Stormont with Mr Peter Bar- 
ry. the Irish Republic’s Minis- 
ter for Foreign Affairs, Mr 
King tried" to end rumour and 
speculation about the discus- 
sions and prove to Loyalists 
that little has changed on the 
ground since the deal was 
signed last November. 

Although it will do little to 
stop Unionist claims that the 
agreement is effectively “Dub- 
lin role” or “joint authority”, 
the communique together 
with Mr King's press confer- 
ence which followed a meet- 
ing of the conference, marks a 
change of heart by the Gov- 
ernment and is evidence that 
it is seriously concerned at 
loyalist reaction to the agree- 
ment. 

Already in the Irish Repub- 
lic the Fianna Fail opposition 
party is saying that there have 
hardly been any changes since 
the agreement was signed last 
November. 


Mr King described as 
“worthwhile” a meeting in 
which there was a review of 
cross-border security coopera- 
tion. and Sir John Hermon. 
Ulster's Chief Constable, out- 
lined measures to improve 
relations between the security 
forces and the community, 
particularly the nationalist 
minority. 

The meeting yesterday also 
dealt with cross-border coop- 
eration in economic and social 
spheres and the Irish delega- 
tion puts forward views on 
behalf of the minority in 
relation to education, health 
and housing which the Gov- 
ernment will consider. 

In response, however, to the 
long-term demands for the 
repeal of the Flags and Em- 
blems Act Which "eScctively 
makes it illegal' io fly the Irish 
tricolour, the Government is 
dearly delaying any move for 
reform. 

Three Democratic Unionist 
Party assembly members were 
arrested during protests out- 
side Stormont Castle where 
the talks took place behind 
rows of barbed wire and with 
hundreds of extra police on 
duty. 

Mr Barry, accompanied by 
Mr Alan Dukes, the 
Republic's minister for jus- 
tice, and Mr Laurence Wren, 
commissioner of the Garda, 
arrived by helicopter on the 
lawn of the castle shortly after 
9am. 

Mr King was accompanied 
by Mr Nicholas Scott, parlia- 
mentary under secretary of

three members of CBS's News 
Bureau after the American

in a joint statement after-

The proposal to tarn a ward 
over to private patients came 
as toe authority net on Mon- 
day night to make cats of £ZS

Hospital, to stay widdn its 
b&dget next year. Its foUrne

ftwfriiiwriiy set JUiTDegal bud- 
get for next year, but remain- 
ing authority members wish to 
meet Mr Barney Hayhoe, the 
Munster for Health, to ask for 
extra cash. 


Mr Cowan said: “The pro- 
posal was to increase the 
nmtber of private beds from 
37 to S3 which would have 
generated £727,000 towards 
oor £LS million deficit. 

“I told toe authority that if 
we did not do that the equiva- 
lent cut would be dosing three 
28-bed NHS wards and mak- 
ing ^ urring ami otiier staff 
redundant 

“That will almost certainly 
be a permanent loss of NHS 
beds. It was much preferable 
to keep the beds and the staff 
ami earn some extra revenue.” 

Despite turning down the 
private patients move the au- 
thority did agree to dose the 
hospital to all but emergency 
patients during August, to 


contract out beds to Sooth 
Lincolnshire Health Author- 
ity to bring in £231,000 a year 
and to a cut of almost 400 in 
foe number of specialist pa- 
tients treated. 

Tire number of cardiology 
patients wifl be cot from 893 to 
714, cardiothoraric surgery 
from 543 to 355 and plastic 
surgery from 682 to 575. The 
number of patterns with drag 
abuse problems — a privity 
area for foe government — are 
also to be cut by 59.

big savings that have had to be 
made in foe past five years,

Mr Cowan’s charge that 
authority members were 
putting party dogma before 
patients interests was criti- 
cized yesterday by Mr Ste- 
phen Babb, an authority 
member and chid' whip of 
Lambeth CounciL 

“The objection to private 
practice and privatizing the 
NHS goes right across foe 
political spectrum”, he said. “1 
just do not accept that this 
decision means closing three 
NHS wards. We are seeking a 
meeting with Mr Hayhoe to 
tell him further cuts on top of 
foe extremely serious ones we 
have already agreed, jost can- 
not be made.” 


The Government is to con- 
sider changing the tew to 
prevent a repetition of the case 
of Patrick Reilly, the man 
cleared of the sex murder of a 
young girl but given three life 
sentences yesterday after 
confessing a series of sexual 
attacks. 

The Prime Minister has 
asked Mr Douglas Hurd, the 
Home Secretary, to look at the 
practice which can be adopted 
in Scottish jury trials. It allows 
the prosecution to refuse to 
accept guilty pleas before a 
jury is sworn in. In that way 
the jury is aware of all the 
charges 3 defendant laces even 
if he later pleads guilty to 
some of them. 

The move came as ReiDy, 
acquitted on Monday of the 
murder of Leonie Darnley, 
was given three life sentences 
after; admitting three rapes, an 
attempted rape and two inde- 
cent assaults: information 
kept from the murder trial 
jury by Mr Justice Pain be- 
cause it might have prejudiced 
their decision. 

Mr Nicholas Fairbaim. QC, 
Conservative MP for Perth 
and Kinross, told the Prime 
Minister that if the English 
law had been changed along 
Scottish lines the outrage over 
the case would not have 
arisen. 

He said last night that if the 
prosecution took the view in 
Scotland that the evidence on 
some of the charges was 
relevant to the evidence on 
others they would refuse to 
accept pleas of guilty. 

Mr Fairbaim said: “I fear 
the evidence on some charges 
in this case was relevant to the 
others. A jury in Scotland 
would not have been kept in 
ignorance.” 

The present law is the 1S98 
Criminal Evidence Act which 
allows defendants not to enter 
pleas if it could incriminate 
them on other charges they 
face. 

Sentencing Reilly yesteray. 
Mr Justice Pain called him 
“an appalling danger to the 
opposite sex”. 

Guilty of attacks including 
an assault on a girl *gc 3 1 1 and 
the rape of a schoolgirl aaed i5 
savaged internally with a claw 
hammer, ReiUy was told by 


the judge that the punish- 
ments was partly "to deter 
others in ibis age when rape 
seems to be becoming more 
frequent and disgusting prac- 
tices certain rapists like you 
indulge in are becoming more 
frequent” 

The judge dimissed as 
"absolutely ludicrous” a call 
from the defence for Reilly to 
be sent to hospital under the 
Menial Health Acl 

The case is one of the fim 
since the Lord Chief Justice . 
Lord Lane, called last month 
for tougher sentencing for 
rapes. 

Outside the court Detective 
Chief Superintendent Robert 
ShutUn overall charge of the 
case, said that inquiries into 
Leonie’s death were now com- 
plete and ”1 can't say any 
more in relation to that 
matter”. 

Described by police as a 
loner. ReiUy lived in a north 
London hostel as an unem- 
ployed labourer receiving 
£108 in social benefits each 
fortnight. Detectives believe 
he went to considerable 
lengths to avoid detection, 
learning how to avoid leaving 
evidence at the scenes of 
crimes by talking to other 
prisoners convicted of rape 
while he was serving sentences 
himself. 

In the Commons Mr John 
Townend, Conservative MP 
for 3ridIingtoa, asked the 
Prime Minister whether she 
thought it appropriate that the 
courts should impose savage 
sentences as a deterrent.

THE TIMES WEDNESDAY MARCH 12 1986 



By Frances Gibb, Legal Affairs Correspondent 


Several hundred families 
could be hit by a cut in legal 
aid which comes into force 
today. It will be the first direct 
reduction in the scheme since 
it was launched 40 years ago. 

The Lord Chancellors De- 
panmem has changed the 
formula for assessing a 
person's financial eligibility 
because of increasing legal aid 
costs, a move expected to 
remove several hundred fam- 
ilies from the scope of the 
scheme. 

At the same time the deci- 
sion may mean several thou- 
sand families paying a 
contribution towards their le- 
gal aid. The Law Sorieily 
estimates that as many as 
9.000 families who at present 
are eligibile for “free" legal aid 
will have to contribute up to 
£ 200 . 

The decision, which will 
affect people seeking legal aid 
for advice and assistance in 
civil and criminal matters, 
involves a reduction in the 
allowances which can be set 
against income when eligibil- 
ity is being assessed. 

The levels of allowance for 
dependants will be cut from 
the present 50 per cent above 
those which apply for supple- 
mentary benefit to 25 per cent, 
which is expected to save the 
department about £7.5 mil- 
lion. 

The Law Society is con- 
cerned that families asked to 
pay a contribution will no 


longer proceed with litigation. 
At present, 28 per cent of 
those offered legal aid, but 
with an obligatory contribu- 
tion. decline to take it up. 

The Legal Action Group of 
lawyers and advice workers is 
also concerned about the ef- 
fects of the cul The new 
requirements will concentrate 
legal aid on the poor rather 
than the wider section of 
society that was envisaged 
when the scheme began, it 
says. 

Another effect will be to 
reduce eligibility dispropor- 
tionately for families, affecting 
those with the greatest num- 
ber of dependants. 

The Government’s propos- 
als, the group says, run 
counter to the recommenda- 
tions of the government 
watchdog on legal aid, the 
Lord Chancellor's Legal Aid 
Advisory Committee, which 
suggested that the legal advice 
and assistance scheme should 
be made more freely available, 
it believed it to be, to a large 
extent, the “preventive medi- 
cine of the law”. 

The Government is con- 
cerned about the escalating 
costs of the legal aid scheme, 
now amounting to £320 mil- 
lion a year, and it has 
launched a top-level inquiry 
by Civil Servants into its 
workings. 

Broad changes in the way 
the scheme is administered 
also come into effect today in 


an attempt to ease the prob- 
lems caused by the heavy 
workload, and bring in more 
consistency in the way legal 
aid is granted. 

The changes will centralize 
the administration of the 
scheme. 

Responsibility will pass to 
the top body, the Legal Aid 
Committee, based in London, 
which acts on behalf of the 
Law Society. 

For the first time there will 
be the principle of M iine 
mangement'", with the central 
committee making policy de- 
cisions which will then be 
implemented in the local ar- 
eas. 

The involvement of the 
profession at local level, the 
Law Society says, has contrib- 
uted greatly to the success of 
the scheme, but it has also led 
to a major weakness; varia- 
tions in practice from one area 
to another. 

Any increased bureacracy is 
intended to be balanced by 
increased rights of appeal 
against refusal of legal aid. 

White welcoming the 
changes as improvements to 
the scheme, the Law Society is 
concerned that they have to be 
implemented against a back- 
ground of yet another scruti- 
ny. There needs to be a 
“period of calm”, it says,“to 
give the changes time to 
become rally effective.” 



plea for 



By Richard Evans Lobby Reporter 


The Social Democratic Par- 
ty will attempt this afternoon 
to move the writ for the 
Fulham by-election - unless 
the Government agrees to do 
the task itself. 

Mr John Cartwright, the 
party Whip at Westminster, 
wrote to Mr John Biffen. 
Leader of the Commorjs. Iasi 
night saying that the Conser- 
vative, Labour and SDP can- 
didates for the contest were 
hard at work in the south-west 
London constituency and the 
campaign had effectively 
started. 

“It does, therefore, seem to 
me that we are in danger of 
bringing the w hole system into 
disrepute if the writ is not 
moved soon." he said. 

The by-election has been 
caused by the death last 
January of Mr Marlin Ste- 
vens. who held a Conservative 
majority of 4.789 at the last 
general election. If the writ is 
moved today the contest 
would take place on April 10. 

Borough council and Inner 
London Education Authority 
elections are being held in 
Fulham on May 3 and Mr 
Cartwright referredin his letter 
to a Speakers' Conference 
recommendation that it was 
inexpedient for partiamentary 
by-elections to be held at the 


same time as iocal elections in 
April and May and. that, if 
practical, they should be held 
at an earlier date. 

“Consequently I believe it 
would be particularly inappro- 
priate to hold a parliamentary 
by-election on ihe same day as 
local government elections. 

“1 feel that April 10 would 
be a very good dale." If Gov- 
ernment business managers 
decide to oppose Mr Cart- 
wright. they can use a proce- 
dural move to move onto 
other Commons business and 
so reserve the right so call the 
by-election at a dale of their 
choosing. 

A by-election writ has to be 
moved within three months of 
the death of an MP or of the 
seat becoming vacant 

Mr Cartwright said last 
night he believed the Govern- 
ment were holding back from 
moving the writ in the hope of 
holding the by-election on 
May 8 and so stretching the 
resources of Labour and the 
SDP. 

The Government feared 
that if the by-election was held 
next month and either of the 
opposition parties did toler- 
ably well it would damage the 
Government in the May local 
elections. 


Man given 
drug in 
error died 

Overworked nurses gave a 
hospital patient the wrong 
drag and he died 12 hours 
later, it was disclosed yester- 
day. 

They were late on the dreg 
round and confused him with 
another man because the pa- 
tients were not wearing name 
tags. 

Jennie Briscoe was the only 
trained nurse on the ward. So 
she asked an untrained auxil- 
iary to help her. 

But the anxiliary mixed up 
die' patients and yesterday 
Mrs Briscoe, aged 41, of Ham 
Greea Hospital in Bristol, was 
accused of professional mis- 
conduct before the Central 
Nursing Council's disciplinary 
committee. 

Her colleague, Mr Christo- 
pher Ainsley, aged 49, faced 
the same charge after leaving 
the ward without helping her 
with the round. 

The hearing was told that 
normally two trained nurses 
gave out medicine. But on the 
day in November 1984 Mrs 
Briscoe was left alone in the 
unit for long-stay disabled 
patients. 

The committee cleared Mr 
Ainsley. Mrs Briscoe was also 
cleared of one charge but 
found guilty of not witnessing 
the auxiliary nurse ou the 
round. But do action was 
taken.

farm workers 

By John Young. Agriculture Correspondent 


Farm workers were last 
night awarded a 5.3 per cent 
pay increase by the Agricultur- 
al Wages Board, bringing to - 
basic rate up to £94.45 a week. 
The National Fanners Umon 
estimated that it would cost 

ihe industry £38 million a 
year. . ' , 

The award, imposed try a 
majority of the employers 
representatives and the mae- 
pendent members of the 
board, was greeted with anger 
by Mr Jack Boddy, secretary 
or the agricultural workers 
mp of the Transport and 
..'neral Workers' Union. 

He said he was appalled that 
a so-called independent board 
should have been’ swayed by 
formers’ claims to have suf- 
fered a 43 per cent fell ra 
income last year. -Large sec- 
tions of the industry were 
perfectly able to meet the 
union’s claim for parity with 
average earnings in manufac- 
turing industry. 

“1 find it incredible because 
ever since the war farm 
workers’ productivity has in- 
creased by an average of 
7 per cent a year”, he said. 
“Farm workers have neve- 


£ 


been rewarded in the way that 
they should have been.” 

The board had decided that 
form workers should. suffer a 
reduction in their already tow- 
wages; the settlement would 
not even keep pace with 

inflation. .. _ . • 

But Mr Chns french, vice- 
president of the NHL de- 
scribed it as a fag seK tomeitt 
in the circumstances facing 
the industry. ’‘This is as for as 
we could go”, he said. 

Asked to comment on Mr 
Boddy’s bineriy disappointed 
reaction. Mr French sand, the 
whole industry was bitterly 
disappointed by the state rt 
found itself in at present. 
There was no point in paying 
wage rates that had to be met 
by an increase in bank borrow- 
ing; in the past year : aa 
estimated 5,000 full-time jobs 
had been shed- ' ; 

Rates for craftsmen and for 
part-time workers will be in- 
creased pro rata, but those for 
seasonal workers win • not 
change. Mr French said that 
the board had accepted foe 
NFU claim that many season- 
al workers were pricing them- 
selves out of jobs.

Local authority spending 


Manchester councils settle 


The Tory-controlled 
Trafford borough council yes- 
terday ended its High Court 
battle with Greater Manches- 
ter county council with a 
settlement expected to save 
ratepayers at least £ 10 million, 
and possibly double that fig- 
ure. 

Mr David Keene, QG for 
Trafford, asked the Court of 
Appeal formally to dismiss its 
appeal against Greater 
Manchester’s plan to go on a 
“spending spree” as its aboli- 
tion at the end of this month 
approaches. 

He announced that a deal 
had been worked out between 
the authorities which would 
not only save money, but also 
give about 200 workers, facing 
dismissal, a further 34 weeks* 
job security. 

Mr Keene told Lord Justice 
O’Connor, sitting with Lords 


Justices Parker and Nourse, 
that a compromise had been 
reached which meant that the 
Labour-controlled Greater 
Manchester council's plan to 
spend a total of £8.4 million 
on various projects, would 
now be implemented “in full” 
by the 10 district councils in 
the county “acting together, 
on, or as soon as possible, after 
April 1”. 

The compromise followed 
last week’s ruling by Mr 
Justice Macpherson that 
Greater Manchester's spend- 
ing plans were lawful. 

By consent the judges dis- 
missed the appeal and dis- 
charged an injunction granted 
on March 3 stopping the 
“spending spree”. They or- 
dered Trafford to pay half 
Greater Manchester's legal 
costs. 

Lord Justice O'Connor said: 


“I am delighted agreement has 
been readied, but it must be 
made quite clear that ibis 
court has not approved the 
contents of the joint statement 
— that is not to be implied 
from our listening to it” - 

The total costs to be paid by 
Trafford are estimated at 
£30.000. 

• The London Borough of 
Lambeth won pe rm i s sion yes- 
terday to seek a High Court 
order compelling the Secretary 
of State for the Environment 
to negotiate with the council 
over its multi-million pound 
overspending. 

Yesterday’s move, which 
could, if successful, ease the 
council's financial problems, 
follows last week's decision in 
the High Court to dismiss 
appeals by the borough's rul- 
ing Labour group against sur- 
charge and dismissal for their 
refusal to set ajrate last year. 


Get tough on Bill, MPs say 

By Colin Hughes, Local Government Correspondent , 


The Government is under 
pressure from its backbench- 
ers to pot the teeth back into 
the Local Government Bill, 
which sets ont to ban “propa- 
ganda on the rates”. 

Ministers are being nrged to 
override amendments, made in 
the Lords, which some MPs 
and leaders of opposition Con- 
servative groups on left-wing- 
controlled local councils 
believe have seriously weak- 
ened the Bill’s provisions. 

It was initially thought that 
ministers might let the amend- 
ments stand, in the hope of 
avoiding unnecessary bad pub- 
licity at a time when the 
Government is under pressure. 

Mr William Waidegrave, 
Minister for Environment, 
Countryside and Local Gov- 
ernment, made important era- 
cessions to local authority 
association critics of tile Bill. 


In particular, he withdrew his 
proposed rode of conduct on 
- publicity issued by councils, 
and said that discussion on the 
code, provided for in the BiD, 
would start again “with a 
blank sheet of paper”.- 

One political adviser said 
yesterday: “There is a strong 
feeling among backbenchers 
In the Commons that the 
Lords have emasculated the 
Bill, and that there trill be 
fireworks if ministers appear 
to be considering allowing the 
changes to stand.” 

The two most important 
changes made by the Lords 
were the removal of a danse 
giving statutory backing to the 
code of conduct, and the 
deletion of “catch afi” phrases 
inteoded to ban any pnbDdty 
which “can reasonably be 
regarded as likely to affect” 
support for a political party. 


■ Ministers are keen to posh 
through the BUI as soon as 
possible. One of its provisions 
is enforcing comcfls to set a 
rate by April 1 each year. 
Political advisers have pointed 
ont, however, that most of the 
councils at which the rate- 
setting date is aimed, those 
who delayed last year, have 
this year decided to keep in 
line. 

Since this may be the 
Government’s last chance to 
legislate on local government 
publicity before the next elec- 
tion, they argue that it would 
be preferable to take time and 
ensure the Bill is as tough as 
originally intended. 

The BOl is doe for its third 
reading in the Lords on March 
18, and is likely to return to 
the Commons before the end of 
the month. 


New Bill will tighten 
surrogacy loopholes 

By Stephen Goodwin Political Staff 


Loopholes in legislation in- 
tended to outlaw commercial 
surrogacy will be closed if a 
Bill now going through the 
House of Lords reaches the 
statute book. 

Parliament thought it had 
stamped out the “rent-a- 
womb” business in Britain 
last year with the passing of 
the Surrogacy Arrangements 
Act. But with childless couples 
prepared to pay large sums of 
money, agencies have found 
ways round the new law. 

Last weekend The Sunday 
Times reported that British 
couples were prepared to pay 
American surrogate mothers 
up to £20,000 to have their 
babies. 

British womeu are also 
being sought by one Washing- 


ton-based agency to travel to 
the United States to be im- 
pregnated by artificial insemi- 
nation by British husbands. 

The 1985 Act followed pub- 
lic outcry over the Baby 
Cotton case and provided that 
“no person on a commercial 
basis shall initiate or take part 
in any negotiations with a 
view to making surrogacy 
arrangements in the United 
Kingdom”. 

Last night peers debated an 
amending Bill introduced by 
the Earl of Halsbury, a 
crossbencher, intended to 
tighten and clarify the law. 

The Bill makes dear that 
anyone knowingly assisting in 
arranging a surrogate pregnan- 
cy becomes criminally liable. 


Willis meets leaders 


of print 

By MUchae 


unions 

Michael Horsnelf 


Norman Willis, general sec- 
retary of the TUC, met leaders 
of the print unions at Congress 
House yesterday to thrash out 
a joint approach before they 
meet News International exec- 
utives for talks about the 
newspaper group's move to 
Wapping. 

The ensuing talks between 
Mr Bruce Matthews, manag- 
ing director of News Interna- 
tional and the unions will be 
the first direct exchange of 
views between the two sides 
since the company dismissed 
6.000 prim workers after they 
went on strike last January 
and predpated the move. 

Mr Willis hopes that the low 
level talks, expected to be held 
later this week, will pave the 
way to an eventual meeting 
between Mr Rupert Murdoch, 


chairman of News Interna- 
tional. and Miss Brenda Dean, 
general secretary of Sogat ’82. 

Bui the company has said 
such talks could only be held if 
the print unions accept they 
will never be admitted to the 
new printing plant in east 
London but want to negotiate 
compensation. 

Sources at Congress House 
said ihai Mr Willis reported to 
the print leaders his recent 
exchange of" views with Mr 
Matthews. 

• Publication of the Scottish 
Daily Record remained sus- 
pended for the third issue 
running last night. Six hun- 
dred print workers have been 
dismissed by publisher Robert 
Maxwell — for the second time 
in two weeks — for refusing to 
set an editorial . after being 
refused a right of reply. 


Pay rises 
‘goto 
better off 

A report which claims that 
workers are sot pricing them- 
selves out jobs* was pub- 
lished yesterday by the Trade 
Union Research Unit at Rus- 
kfa CoBege. OxfonL The {hid- 
ings are contrary , to 
government charges. 

The report says that any 
policy based on the Govern- 
ment’s theory is “at best 
misguided and. at worst, a 
deception”. 

It says that growth in teal 
earnings, after allowing for 
inflation, during 1979-84 was. 
concentrated; among foe high- 
est paid groups. 

But the earnings of the 
lowest paid struggled to beat 
inflation. 

As a result, the gap between 
the poorest 10 per cent and the 
wealthiest 10 per cent had 
widened. ’ 

The report analysed earn- 
ings and employment changes 
in East Anglia, the West 
Midlands and south-east En- 
gland. 

It found that the better chan 
average employment chances 
in East Anglia coincided with 
real earnings growth, even for 
the low paid. 

While the south-east had 
above average real earnings, it 
also had low unemployment 
levels. 

However, in the West Mitt- 
lands, average real earnings 
had dropped below the na- 
tional trend, but this had not 
led to any improvement in job 
prospects. 

The unit says the “pricing 
out” theory is not supported 
by the evidence. 

. “The Government’s con-, 
centrauon on supply-side poli- 
cies is no more than a 
smokescreen to bide the root 
causes of unemployment; de- 
mand deficiency and structur- 
al change.” - - 


Prescription charges 


Lecturer who 
killed girl 
jailed for life 

A dental lecturer who mur- 
dered his adopted daughter 
aged 13 and hid hacked-off 
pieces of her body was yester- 
day jailed for life. 

One hundred and five' 
pieces of the girl's flesh and 
bone were found at XXr Sam- 
son Pfcrera’s house in Wake- 
field, West Yorkshire and at 
his Leeds University laborato- 
ry, Leeds Crown Court was 
told. 

Perera, who brought the 
girt, Nilanthie, to Britain from 
a Sri Lankan jungle, was told' 
by the judge: “The crime 
which you have committed is 
one which revolts the mind of 
every right-thinking person.” 

Perera’s wife, Dammika, a 
mathematics teacher, was giv- 
en a 12-month suspended 
sentence after being found 
guilty of assisting an offender. 


Health service to profit from increased prices 


Patients will pay more than 
the cost of the drugs for almost 
20 million prescriptions next 
year as the prescription charge 
rises to £2.20 on April 1. 

With the 11-fotd increase 
from 20p to £2.20 in charges 
since the Conservatives came 
to power in 1979, many 
commonly prescribed drugs 
cost the health service less to 
dispense to patients than the 
prescription charge the patient 
has to pay, the Department of 
Health confirmed yesterday. 

In effect, on cheaper drugs

Kirkwood, Liberal A course of penicillin costs Mr Peter Boanhnan. assis- 
the health service about £1.50, 


Arch 

health spokesman, describing 
it as “scandalous”. He said: 
“it is making a profit out of 
the sick and should be 
stopped.” 

Mr Charles Kennedy, the 
SDFs spokesman on health, 
said it was “quite outrageous 
that people should have to pay 
more for the drugs than it 
costs the NHS to dispense 
them. It is a ridiculous lax on 
ill-health”. 

According to the Pharma- 
ceutical Services Negotiating 


the Government is making a>«Commitiee, the total cost of a 


profit on the prescription 
charge, although more expen- 
sive drugs can cost far more 
than the £2.20 prescription 
charge. 

MPs yesterday reacted an- 
grily to the disclosure, with Mr 


standard course of the 
tranquillizer diazepam, in- 
cluding the cost of dispensing, 
is about £1.35. But the patient 
will have to pay the £2.20 
prescription charge, 85p more 
titan the cost of foe drug. 


and a course of nitrazepam 
sleeping tablets about £1.60, 
while Betnovate skin cream 
for eczema costs about £1.99 
and chloramphenicol eye 
drops about £1.90. 

Even though the prescrip- 
tion charge is higher than the 
cost of the drug, however, 
patients will still have to pay 
the £120 charge because these 
drugs are only available on 
prescription. 

Family doctors are barred 
from writing private prescrip- 
tions for NHS patients, which 
in theory would allow them to 
buy the drugs at cost price. A 
patient who went to the doctor 
privately would lose the sav- 
ing by having to pay for the 
consultation. 


taut secretary of the. 
pharmacists’ negotiating com- 
mittee. said: “W e deplore this 
prescription tax and believe it 
is counter-productive.” 

After last year’s 25 per cent 
increase in prescription 
charges, the number of pre- 
scriptions doctors had written 
for courses of treatment last- 
ing more than -30 days had 
risen by one-and-a-half times. 
Mr Boardman said: “Doctors 
are just writing prescriptions 
for longer periods so that foe 
patient only pays once. But 
the cost of foe drugs bill goes 
up and the extra income from 
the higher prescription cfaarae 
is off-set^’ 

The -Department of Health 
said that, about 320 million 
presciptioosare written a year.

By Stewart Tffldler, Crime Shorter 
jury ,. Yesterday, Mr Justice Pain on September 4 when a worn- 


which cleared Patrick Reilly 
on Monday of murdering a 
girl aged seven were back at 
the Central Criminal Court 
yesterday to him sen- 
tenced to life imprisonment 
for a catalogue of sex attacks 
and to bear their decision, to 
clear him vindicated by ibe 
judge. 

After Reilly, aged 24 , of 
Anson Road, Tufoell Park, 
north London, was acquitted 
of the murder of Leonie 
Darnley on Monday, Mr Jus- 
tice Pain told the jury that 
ReiDy had, unknown to them 
already pleaded guilty to three 
rapes, attempted rape and two 
indecent assaults. . Several 
women in the jiHy left the 
court in lean after the news. 
But yesterday the judge told 
the 11 jury members who 
returned to watch Reilly being 
semen cedthat they should not 
reproach themselves. 

The judge said that in the 
murder case “the evidence 
was not particularly strong. It 
was 'Very understandable that 
there should be an acquittal". 
Before the murder trial began 
there had been lengthy legal 
argument about telling the 
jury of Reilly’sptea ofguflty to 
the sexual attacks. The judge 
had decided . the evidence 
should not be admitted. Brit- 
ish justice required that there 
should be a fur trial 

The prosecution wanted to 
use details of the sexual 
attacks to show apattem of 
evidence to disclose a link in 
the modus operundi of the 
man who carried out the sex 
attacks and the murderer of 
Leonie in July 1984. Last year 
Reilly was tried before anoth- 
er judge at the Central Crimi- 
nal Court on the same murder 


showed copies of the Daily 
Mail and Daily Express to the 
court and attacked front page 
headlines accusing die jury of 
crying with shame after; their-' 

, decision to acquit Redly. The 
judge said: “It is a fr ying 
shame that papers should 
report a matter m that way. 

You did your duty and did it 
welL This sort of ridiculous 
nonsense should be co n fined 
to the wastepaper basket 
.where it belongs." 

The seven women and four 
men of the jury, who returned 
to court at the judge's invite- - 
tion, sat in a section of Chart 
Number One as. ReiDy. was ■ 
brought up before the judge to 

hear a chronicle of sex atinHcc 
carried out in London two 
years ago. ReiDy, a red-beaded 
labourer with a passion for 
physical fitness, sat flanked by 
prison officers. Raised in 
North Wales, he was finr 
convicted of indecent assault 
at. the age of 17 when he 
attacked a woman with a 
bottle. 

Miss Ann Goddard, QC, for 
the prosecution, told tbe court 
that on August 17. 1984, 

Reilly attacked and raped a 
woman, aged 21, on 
Totteridge Common, north 
London, armed with a knife. 

In the scond attack 10 days 

later, Reilly attacked a house- •

Mr Ivan Lawrence, QC, for 
the defence, told the court that 
Reilly bad shown remorse, 
admitting offences to the po- 
lice and pleading guilty. 

Mr Lawrence said no one 
could fell to be sickened by the 
attacks and that a lengthy 
sentence was necessary. 

“I don't seek to argue 
against it nor is Reilly asking 
me to do so. He knows the

Tantalizing clues in hair 


By Peter Evans 
Key evidence presented to 
the court by the prosecution in 
the Leonie Darnley trial 
sought to link Patrick Reilly to 
her killing by four human 
hairs and three doth fibres. He 
was found not guilty. 

The case raised questions 
about the part human hair canr 
play in crime detection.. .In 
spite of advances in forensic : 
science, hair remains one of. 
the most tamalffirng of dues. - v 
However, ovoid bodies 
within hairs are grviog foren- 
sic scientists a better chance, 
after much experiment, of 
identifying the person from 
whom they come. One case 
which bung on evidence about 
them was successful last year. 

Mr Peter Martin, of the 
Metropolitan Police forensic 


science laboratory, pointed 
out that it was often difficult 
to detide that hair at the scene 
of a crime came from a 
particular person. 

“When we say hair matches 
positively that is unusual and 
significant,** he said. . 

The o voids help because, np 
to a point, their pattern can be 
matched with olhers in hairs 
from a person's body. Looked 
at magnified np to 400 tunes 
titey. resemble, small. ovals of 
dense colour, pigment granr 
Hies?. - - 

Some people have a lot, 
some a few. They can be dose 
together or strung out along 
the length of the hair. 

As is often the case with 
evidence depending on statis- 
tical probability, there is a 
range of people in the middle 


of the population whose 
O voids look alike. 

What the scientist is looking 
for is the case that is .different 
from tiie average; those who 
have many ovoids or a few. 

The importance of squeez- 
ing extra information from a 
sample is that, if matched with 
what else is available, it can 
help to create a profile of 
characteristics. 

One hair from the head of 
’ most Caucasians would hardly 
single them out. There is a 
complete range of browns 
through from almost blond to 
almost blade, Mr Martin said. 
Narrowing down evidence is 
helped by the lacquer, dye or 
other cosmetics people put on 
.hair. Dye components can be 
identified. Other characteris- 
tics are width and length. 


Man tells jury 
of threat 
over evidence 

A victim of an alleged 
kidnapping told a jury yester- 
day that he had been threat- 
ened about giving evidence 
against a man alleged to_ have 
tortured him with a hot iron. 

Haitian Singh Jassal an 
Asian businessman, claimed 
that be and his family had 
been approached in the street 
Mr Jassal was giving evi- 
dence on the second day of the 
trial at York Crown Court of 
one his alleged kidnappers, 
Jimmy Johnson, aged .37, 
formerly ofBroad Mead Way, 
West Denton, Newcastle- 
upon-Tyne. 

He told the court: ^Ve have 
had threats not to give this 
evidence and no one seems to 
care. They came to my moth- 
er, my father, my brother, my 
sister, me and my wife while 
we were walking down the 
street” .... 

Earlier Mr Jassal had bro- 
ken down as he told how his 
captors had burnt him wnh a 
hot iron and tried to pult Ins' 
toenails out with pliers 
The jury was toM that ibe 
kidnapping took place in an 
attempt by Mr Johnson and 
Stephen Abadon, a boxer, to 
force their victim to pay 
“compensation" after he re- 
fused to use his status at the 
Newcastle business communi- 
ty fraudulently to obtain more 
than 140000 cigarettes. 

Mr Johnson, of no settled 
address, denies causing griev- 
ous bodily harm with intent, 
blackmail felse imprisonment 
and indecent assault 
The case continues today.

Rape victim rescued 


A woman bricklayer told a 
Centra] Criminal Court jury 
yesterday that she was rescued 
by police in riot gear after she 
had been held captive and 
raped in an east London flat 
Hie woman aged 34 said 
she had been held prisoner all 
night and had been threatened 
with knives before being raped 
three times in the third-floor 
flat in Hackney. 

When the tenant, an unem- 
ployed man, aged 59, who 
denies a charge of rape, fell 
asleep, she had crept to the 
telephone and called a friend 
who arrived with the police. 
She said the door to the flat 


was locked, and the windows 
would not open very far. She 
had hidden three carving 
knives in a rubbish bin. then 
scrawled out a note which she 
dropped from the kitchen 
window to a policeman below. 
The note, which was shown to 
the jury, said: “Please hurry, 
he's awake again, and I can't 
take much more". 

Mr Peter Cooper, for the 
prosecution, said that minutes 
later, when the accused was in 
the hallway, riot police had 
smashed down the front door 
on top of him. causing “quite 
serious injuries”. 

The trial continues today. 


Compensation for 
injury by teacher 


By Craig Seton 


A teenage boy has become 
the fust pupil to win an award 
from the Criminal Injuries 
Compensation Board for inju- 
ries inflicted by a teacher at 
school. 

The board announced yes- 
terday that Stephen McKevitt, 
now aged 15, had received an 
interim payment of £200 after 
an incident in 1984 at the 
Glaisdale Comprehensive 
School Bilbo rough, Notting- 
ham, when he was summoned 
outside a classroom by Mr 
James Demscott. a woodwork 
teacher, for misbehaving. 

A doctor who examined the 
boy, then aged 1 3. said that be 
had received injuries that were 
“compatible with being forc- 
ibly grabbed around the 
neck". 

“His windpipe was painful- 
ly swollen and he had livid red 
marks" 

The decision to award com- 
pensation was the first of its 
kind in the 22-year history of 
the board and it was hailed as 
a victory by Stopp. the Society 
of Teachers Opposed to Physi- 
cal Punishment. 

Mr Joseph McKevitt, the 
boy's father, a van driver, of 
Baythorpe Road, Bilbo rough, 
was later prosecuted and fined 
£250 for assaulting Mr Derris- 
cott after he had learnt of his 
son's injuries. 

He claimed that the boy had 
been “half strangled" in the 
incident. 


Nottinghamshire police 
said yesterday that Mr Denis- 
con had been cautioned by a 
senior officer who investigat- 
ed the incident, but the boy’s 
mother. Mrs Linda McKevitt, 
aged 32, demanded that the 
education authority should 
review the teacher’s position 
at the school. 

She said: "We feel angry 
and bitter and we do not think 
that he should any longer be 
allowed to teach children." 

She claimed that her son 
had not misbehaved and said 
that Mr Demscott had ac- 
cused him of not working 
while he was out of the room. 

Stopp yesterday accused the 
police of double standards in 
prosecuting the boy's father 
but not taking any action 
against the teacher. 

Miss Julie Macfarlane. the 
society's research co-ordina- 
tor, said: “What concerns us is 
the reluctance of the police 
force to prosecute the teacher 
following what has now been 
recognized by the board as a 
criminal act, an act which 
resulted in injuries to the 
child." 

Nottinghamshire Education 
Committee yesterday refused 
to say whether any disciplin- 
ary action had been taken 
against Mr Demscott 

The teacher was not avail- 
able for comment 


Britain used as dump 
for low-quality goods 


Britain was becoming the 
dumping ground of the devel- 
oped world for manufactured 
products, according to Mr 
Michael Montague, chairman 
of the National Consumer 
Council. 

“The United States and 
most of Western Europe sim- 
ply would not permit the kind 
of goods we find here in cut- 
price shops and on market 
stalls." he told the annual 
seminar of the Society of 
Trading Standards Officers in 
London. 

“Tough product-safety 
measures are not only good for 
the consumer and good for 
trading standards depart- 
ments, they are also good for 
British industry" he said. 

Trading standards officers 
and consumers recognized the 
inseparable links between 
economy, industry and stan- 
dards. "but my concern is that 


indusuy does not yet share 
our point of view" 

British companies which 
complied with safety stan- 
dards were often put at a 
disadvantage by cheap foreign 
imports, Mr Montague said. 
But if goods could be inspect- 
ed long before they reached 
the market, that unfair compe- 
tition could be removed.

Train thief is jailed for 10 years 


A man who terrorized train 
passengers was jailed for 10 
years at the Centra) C rimina l 
Court yesterday. 

Richard Baker, aged 21. told 
police: “I like carrying a gnn 
and being a ganffiter.” 

Mr Brian Walsh, QC, the 
recorder, said he hoped that 
the 10 -year term would act as 
a deterrent to other would-be 
railway robbers and added: 
“The amount of crime of tins 
nature on public transport las 
reached frightening 
proportions^ 

Baker, armed with a replica 


revolver and a knife made 
nine attacks, the court was 
told. , „ . . 

He threatened “timid" 
young men with death, and 
forced them to hand over their 
cash, watches and jewellery. 
Miss Rebecca Poulet, for the 

prosecution, said. 

His capture came when he 
tried to rob Mr Neaguro 
Sheth, aged 21, a student, who 
put up a fight on a train 
between Sbenfidd and Liver- 
pool Street station, London. 

. Another passenger, Mr 
George Vincent, aged 66, a 


retired policeman, tackled 
Baker, wrenched the gun from 
his hand and held on to him 
until help arrived. 

Thejudge praised Mr Sheth, 
from South Woodford, Essex, 
and Mr Vincent, from 
Woodham Feners, also in 
Essex, for their “great 
courage". He awarded them 
£100 each. 

Baker pleaded guilty to two 
charges of robbery. He was 
convicted of six- other robber- 
ies. and of assaulting Mr Sheth 
with intent to rob.

Cost of Trident rises by £584m 


DEFENCE 


The revised estimate for the 
Trideni programme showed an 
increase of £584 million, to 
£9,869 million, over last year, 
Kir George Younger, Secretary 
of State for Defence, said during 
question time in the Commons 

Asked for details of the latest 
estimates for the missile pro- 
gramme. he said: The pro- 
gramme has been recosted as 
pan of the annual long-term 
costing of the defence pro- 
gramme. By convention, that 
costing assumes exchange rates 
prevailing last June, which for 
the dollar gives a rate of £1 
equals Si. 28. 

On thal basis, the revised 
estimate for Trident is £9.869 
million at average 1985-86 
prices, an increase of £534 
million over last year's estimate. 
£324 million of this increase 


reflects a lower exchange rate 
than was assumed last year. 

The remaining increase oi 
£260 million, or only 2.8 per 
cent, reflects inflation offset by 
real cost reductions arising from 
better definition as the pro- 
gramme progresses. 

Costs therefore are firmly 
under control and I am glad to 
say that the programme remains 
on time for an in-service date ol 
the mid-1990s. I am making 
available to the Public Accounts 
Committee a more detailed 
report on the state of the project 
as a whole. 

Mr Timothy Yeo (Suffolk South, 

Cr. Even bearing in mind that 
the rise in the pound against the 
dollar on the date quoted will 
further reduce the cost of Tri- 
dent. nevertheless there are 
many people in this country 
concerned about the way in 
which expenditure on Trident 
may curtail spending on other 
important defence program mes. 


Mr Younger: The calculation of 
expenditure has been done 
deliberately by me on exactly 
the same basis which by conven- 
tion has been done every year, 
basing the dollar at the rate it 
was on June the previous year. 

So far as the weight of the 
Tndcm programme on the de- 
fence programme as a whole, f 
can confirm this leaves it still as 
an average of 3 per cent of the 
defence programme, or 6 per 
cent of the equipment pro- 
gramme. That is sun weH within 
our means for such an im- 
portant system of our defence. 
Dr David Owen (Plymouth, 
Devon port, SDP): Last year 
when this cost was given it was 
the Government's intention to 
keep level funding in the de- 
fence budget- Now the Trident 
increased costs have to be taken 
on a defence budget which has 
been cut by 7 per cent over I he 
next three years in real terms, 
how can he go on claiming he 


can support the conventional 
defence effort currently 
planned? 

Mr Younger Very much SO. 

Particularly as be may notice 

that the rate of inflation for the 
Trident programme is very 
much lower than that for the 
defence programme as a whole. 
Because of the offsetting of other 
savins, it is well within what we 
can afford. 

Mr Antony Marlow (Northamp- 
ton NOrth East, Q: Is not 
Trident cheap at the price and 


jolly good value? 
Mr Younger He 1 


Mr Younger He is right. There 
is no other way at a comparable 
price in which we can so secure 
peace for this country in future. 
Mr Denzil Davies, chief Oppo- 
sition spokesman on defence 
and disarmament: As the in- 
creased cost of Trident an- 
nounced today is bound to come 
out of the budget for con- 
ventional defence spending and 
as that is static or railing in real 


terms, does he not agree that 
with the cost of Trident increas- 
ing there is no other place from 
which that spending on Trident 
can come? 

The American end of the cost 
of Trident is out of thecontrol of 
the Government being deter- 
mined by the exchange rale and 
the charges of the American 
armaments contractors. 

Mr Younger. [ have kept the 
calculations within the normal 
conventions of the exchange 
rate. It is not altogether 
favourable to the cause I would 
wish to put but I hope he would 
regard it as fair. 

The key factor is that the total 
weight on the defence pro- 
gramme of Trident is smaller 
than the Tornado programme. 
It secures our safety and defence 
for the future and 1 would have 
though] most people would . 
regard it as an extremely good 
programme.

Why Gorbachov offer fails 


DISARMAMENT 


For the Russians to move their 
intermediate nuclear weapons 
from eastern Europe to Asia 
from where they could quickly 
return them to Europe was 
totally different from the zero 
option, Mrs Margaret 
Thatcher, the Prime Minister, 
said when challenged by Mr 
Nell Kinnock. Leader of the 
Opposition, on her reasons for 
not accepting the recent offer by 
Mr Gorbachov. 


Mr Kinnock opened the ex- 
changes during Prime Minister's 
questions by asking whether 
Mrs Thatcher agreed that her 
important exchange of letters 
with Mr Gorbachov should be 
published, in the public interest. 

Does she recall saying, in 
November 1983. that the best 
Christmas present Mr Andrei 
Andropov could give the West 
would be to dismantle the SS20s 
and accepting the zero option? 


Now that Mr Gorbachov has 
publicly made that offer, why 
does she not at least pursue 
discussions based on the pro- 
posal to get the SS20s out of 
Europe altogether? 

Mrs Thatcher Mr Kinnock is 
mistaken in thinking that that is 
the offer Mr Gorbachov has 
made. He is not meeting the 
zero option by moving the 
weapons to the' Far East from 
where they could be moved 
back. That is totally different. 
Mr Kinnock: is she telling us 
that she is willing to go so far as 
io inhibit the removal of all 
interim weapons from the east 
and west of Europe because of 
problems relating to Asia? 

Would she not pursue the 
question of dismantling SS20s 
so that, not only is the menace 
in Europe removed, but also the 
possibility of ensuring that no 
additional menace arises, even 
in the Far East? 

Mrs Thatcher There is no point 
in moving weapons to a place 
from which they can be moved 


back to be a menace to this 
country. 

I would remind him that 
when Mr Andropov was dealing 
with certain weapons, he said 
“We are not naive people”. 
What a pity Mr Kinnock does 
not take that on board. 

Mr Kinnock: On such an im- 
portant issue which affects the 
fate of all of us, and that of 
future generations, I hope she 
can be a little more rational in 
her approach and not simply 
resort to party political dogma. 

Since she says she wants to 
concentrate on achieving realis- 
tic viable arms control methods, 
why does she not pursue the 
possibility of securing a freeze in 
nuclear arms development since 
that is plainly the most balanced 
and viable of all control mea- 
sures? 

Mrs Thatcher: First because 
you are freezing imbalances. 
"Unless you modernize the 
strategic deterrent, it soon 
ceases to be a deterrenL Thai is 
presumably why his party mod- 
ernized Chevaline.

Belgian authorities asked for an

would tala from a week to 10 

days or a fortnight to produce. 
The debate should be cond u cte d 
against the background of the 
current position of the merc hant 
fleet. That revealed a disastrous 
decline; in the British ship 

i °Ln^975 there bad been 1.833 
ships registered in the United 
Kingdom, but by 1980 that 
figure was down to 1358 ships 
and by 1985 it had farther 
reduced to 600. Trade umon 
sources estimated the ue« 
would shrink to 300 by the end 
of the current year 

It was true the General Coun- 
cil of British Shipping represent- 
ing ship owners forecast a figure 
of400, but whichever was right, 
as a maritime nation everyone 
should be concerned. 

Sir Edward d» Cana (Taun- 
ton, C) said the debate was of 
the greatest importance to the 
economic and defence well- , 
being of the natum. ‘ 

Britain's merchant , fleet was 
now the smallest it had been this

no good the Prime Minister 
saying it was all fra -the best as 
this simply was not so. He did 
not know where .she got her 
advice from, but it was wrong. 

He suggested the appoint- 
ment of a single Minister in 
charge of maritime aflaira. 

The time had come to end the 
rhetoric. The United Kingdom 
was in a situation of crisis as was

He may recall the words of the 
1974 Labour manifesto which

what is happening at Barrow.

Mr Lamont What everybody in 
Barrow wants to know is now

are going to cancel Trident and 
at the same time say they are not 
going to increase spending on 
conventional defence.

Long-term costing of 
defence programme 


Mrs Thatcher had given a most 
constructive response to Mr 
Gorbachov. Mr George Youn- 


ger, Secretary of State for De- 
fence. said during Commons 
questions. No final decision, he 
added later, had yet been taken 
about the precise date of this 
year’s defence White Paper, but 
it would not be very different 
from the date on which h was 
published last year. 

He told Mr James Lamond 
(Oldham Central and Royton. 
Lab) that in the normal way he 
would be considering the long- 
term costing of the defence 
programme over the next few 
months. 

Mr Lamond: Since he is having 
trouble finding the money to 
finance even conventional de- 
fence. should he not have been 
exening a little more pressure 
on the Prime Minister so that 
sue did not give such a strident 
reply to the Soviet Lfnion? This 
would have enabled us to aban- 
don Trident and save £ 1 0,000 
million. 

Mr Younger: I do not agree. I 


thoroughly support the Prime 
Minister’s most constructive re- 
sponse to Mr Gorbachov. 

Mr Allen McKay (Barnsley 
West and Penisione. L abf. A 
close analysis of the long-term 
costings would indicate that 
with the cost of Trident we shall 
finish up with the most expen- 
sive defence forces in the whole 
of Europe and the worat- 
equipped and most poorly- 
trained conventional forces. 

Mr Younger: In general Trident 
takes on average 3 per cent of 
the defence budget. By no 
stretch of the imagination could 
thal be said to be a major inroad 
into our normal defence pro- 
gramme.

Defence ministers would not be 
drawn in the Commons on the 
question of whether Land Rover 
exports might be at risk if 
ownership of the company 
passed out of British hands. But 
it was true to say that the 
Bedford subsidiary of the 
United States firm General 
Motors were already substantial 
suppliers of vehicles for defence 
ministry needs. 


Mr John Lee, Under Secretary 
of State for Defence Procure- 
ment, said the question of the 
future of Land Rover was for the 
Department of Trade and In- 
dustry. (Labour laughter}. 

The Ministry of Defence had 
something of the order of 20.000 
Land Rovers in service. The 
MoD looked to the company to 
honour existing and planned 
orders, together with customer 
support, supplies of compo- 
nents. research, development 
and manufacture. 


Mr Lee said he had nothing to 
add to what he had already said. 

Mr John Stokes (Halesowen 
and Stourbridge. C) said the 
MoD’s purchases of Land 
Rover, and the company’s mili- 
tary exports, would not be

ship by a foreign concern. Many

when she saw how they had

Lord Gletxartiwrt l ean assure 
him that the police are taking

Lord Misbcon (Lab) said that a 
disincentive for a compfaimatlo

of gmng evidence and befog

lic and press. 

He asked the minister to

This emerged during ques- 
tions after Mr John Taylor 
(Solihull. O. whose constit- 
uency contains the Land Rover 
plant, asked whether the 
company's long record of export 
success would be at risk, since 
Genera) Motors had said they 
would discriminate as to which 
countries they would or would 
not sell to. 


Mr Kevin McNamara, an Oppo- 
sition spokesman on defence, 
said: The House will have noted 
that it is the Trade and Industry 
Department that is deciding 
who are going to be Britain's 
main defence suppliers. 
(Conservative protests). Would 
it not be better to keep Land 
Rover under British control — 
able to meet Britain’s needs and 
not at the whim of Detroit? 


trucks to the MoD totalled 
about 21.000 at present. 

Earlier. Mr Lee said current 
MoD orders with Land Rover 
were for 4.500 of the new 110 
model. A substantial order for 
the military version of the 
shorter wheelbase 90 model was 
expected soon. He was con- 
fident that the military versions 
of these latest models would 
prove even more attractive than 
their predecessors in the over- 
seas defence market. 


A change in toe law to prevent 
what an MP called ’a repetition 
of the outrage’ over the Patrick 
Reilly case and savage sentences 
for rapists were urged on the 
Prime Minister during questior 
time in the Commons. 


Mr Nicholas Fairbairn (Perth 
and Kinross, Q said she should 
consider altering the English 
law so that pleas were not taken 
until after the jury was sworn. 


In that way the outrage over 
the Reilly case, in which the 
defendeni was cleared of the sex 
murder of seven-year-old Lcoxtie 
Darnley before the jury heard he 
had admitted a series of rape 
attacks, would not have arisen. 
Mrs Thatcher said she would 
pass on the suggestion to the 
Home Secretary (Mr Douglas 
Hurd) and added: It is not open 
to me or to the House to suggest 
that the defendant in this case 
was guilty of an offence of which 
be has been acquitted. Obvi- 
ously I can say nothing more 

limn Hut. 


Mr John Townend (Bridlington, 
O had earlier asked: In view at 
the rise m violent crime, particu- 
larly the appalling, brutal cases 
of rape, does she think it 
appropriate that the courts 
should Impose savage sentences 
as a deterrent? 


Does she not think it is time 
that MPs re-examined then- 
consciences to consider if they 
were right, against the wishes of 
theto constituents, to take away 
from the courts the right of 
corporal and capital putish- 
meat? 


Mrs Thatcher replied: The Lord 
Chief Justice has set out a very 
dear and firm position for toe 
courts in rape cases and the 
sentences that should be im- 
posed. I have no doubt they will 
follow that and as a gwdefine it 
was, in general, very well re- j 
ceived. 


A decision on capital punish- 
ment would have to get through 
the Commons and the House of 
Lards. We have already had ooe | 
debate. He knows my own views ! 
but it is a matter for toe House . 
on its own vote.

Distance ban 
on solicitor 


Government bus policy 
took a startling turn yesterday 
when London's famous red 
bus company launched into 
inter-city expresses to the 
Midlands while abandoning 
local bus routes in London. 

From next Monday the 
company will operate a deluxe 
coach service to Birmingham, 
called London Liner, offering 
a 2v>hour journey between 
city centres at £9 return in 
partnership with the West 
Midlands passenger transport 
executive. 

London Liner buses will 
have lavatories, telephone, 
video and steward service. 
The Midlands service is the 


Michael Bafly, Transport Editor 


first of several and although it 
will take an hour longer on the 
route than British Rail, it wUI 
cost half as much. 

Mr John Beasley, chairman 
of London Buses, admitted 
yesterday that the new service 
was being launched at a lime 
when the company had pulled 
out of 1 6 suburban services in 
London, but added: “Deregu- 
lation enables us to compete 
with others as well as letting 
them compete with us. We 
don't intend to just sit back 
and Set it hit us.” 

London Liner, involving a 
£750,000 investment in 12 
coaches, should make a profit 
of more than £50.000 a year. 


and that will help London’s 
local services. Mr Beasley 
said. 

In suburban London, local, 
operators could undercut the 
company, which had a costly 
wage agreement with its crews. 

With a £130 million-a-year 
subsidy, profits from coaches 
would improve total viability 
and help the company to 
compete in local London ser- 
vices. 

“If we don’t build profits in 
services like this, we will 
always be at risk in tendering 
for local London services to j 
the private operator who has I

EEC hill farm aid ‘mismanaged’ 


By John Young, Agriculture Correspondent 


Aid to hill fanners has been 
mismanaged and has led to 
conflict between conservation 
and agriculture, a report pub- 
lished loday says. 

In a study fgr the Aridetou 
Trust Dr Malcolm Smith, of 
the Nature Conservancy 
Council, claims that although 
nearly half the United King- 
dom qualified for EEC aid ibr 
less favoured areas, compared 


with only one fifth in France, 
the French had provided assis-. 
lance much more sensitively. 

Larger farms had unfairly 
benefited because Britain had 
failed to limit livestock num- 
bers 

Compensatory payments 
had also been linked to a very 
crude distinction between ar- 
eas that were the least disad- 
vantaged and those which 


were worse affected 
The inequitable share-out of 
EEC aid had ted to ever 
greater agricultural develop- 
ment. including drainage, of 
wetlands, ploughing of moor- 
land and the abandonment of 
traditional management ; of 
hay meadows, the report says. 
Overgrazing of mountain 
grasslands and moors ., was 
commonplace.

BBC drops action 

' against editor 


The BBC has decided not to 
take disciplinary action 
against the editor of Rough 
Justice. Mr Etwyn Parry 
Jones, over tire Mycock affair, 
it was announced yesterday. 

The National Union of 
Journalists released a letter 
from the BBC’S managing 
director, Mr Bin Cotton, in 
which he told Mr Parry Jones 
that he had considered a. 
report into the way an investi- 
gative team worked on a 
programme, but the matter 
was now dosed. 1 
Two BBC journalists. Mr 
Martin Young and Mr Peter 
Hill, were suspended without 
> pay for their pan in a /tough. 
Justice programme which tel 
to the freeing of Mr Tony 
Mycock, who had been jailed, 
for five years for burglary. 

Lord Lane, the Lord Chief 
Justice, criticized the gur fin- 








tire methods used in -obtaining 
interviews. 

Mr Parry Jones declined to 
comment yesterday. “To do, 
so might be regarded as a 
breach of discipline in itself 
and he is naturally wary, given 
his recent experience. 1 know 
that he is pleased and i 
relieved”, Mr Ian Yonge, his j 
lawyer.sakL 

• The NUJ’s broadcasting of 1 
freer, Mr John Foster, said 
. action against Mr Parry Jones i 
would have been “rough Jus- j 
tice indeed”, and that BBC 
manag ement abused normal 
disciplinary procedures- . j 

However, Mr Foster’s cafl j 
for Rough Justice to return “as 
soon as possible” had a luke- 
warm response; from tire BBC. 

“The future of the pro-1 
gramme is still under -oqn-l 
, sideration'’, a spokesman said. 


for 10 years 

Dominic McGfinchey, for- 
mer dutfofstaff of the 
banned Irish -National Liboa* 
tion Army who was extradited 
from the Irish Republic, was 
jailed for 10 years yesterday. 

McGlincbey, aped 31, had 
pleaded not gouty in the 
Special 'Criminal Court in 
Dublin to having a gun and 
shooting with, intent to resist 
arrest and endanger life, after 
his capture in Co Clare in 
March 1984. 

He was returned to the 
republic to. stand trial last 
October after ' a successful 
appeal against a life sentence 
imposed in Belfast for the 
murder of an elderly woman 
in Co Antrim in 1977. 


popular as tney wax •»*»* 
the signs are that the halcyon 
days may have gone for good, 
a leading article in Police, the 
-monthly magazine of the Po- 
lice Federation, says. *- 

In a frank assessment of the 
effect of pressures on tire 
police, the article gives a 
warning of the danger of a. 
force that has become isolat- 
ed, lost popularity and whore 
officers put group loyalty first. 

“A force which comes to see 
itself as isolated from the 
largely atiraaied communities 
of tire inner city, and not 
properly understood by those 
whose »ipport was once toko] 
for granted, would be unfitted 
for the crucial task of turning 
bads the tide of crime ana 
violence which threatens Lon- 
don as never before.” 

Referring to tire Metropoli- 
tan Mice, the artiefe says tiurt 
nothing could excise acts of 


nor could it condone misguid- 
ed peer-group loyalty 

“Bid Jet us not pretend 
surprise that officers who, day 
in and out, have to withstand 
hatred, verbal and physical, 
abuse, racial insults and ob- 
scenities, and vicious violence 
directed at them soldy be- 
cause they are police officers, 
should come to firel that 
loyalty to each otlrer tran- 
scends other, unaillifid but 
impersonal, obligations. 

Such trends are cyclical, the

police, racist police, apd cop--

ihat produces the Trevor

Keith Blakelocks and Yvonne 
Fletchers. In the final araoun^, 
ing, it is they who wffl ret the 
siandards that prevail 


the inner city, towards “good 
citizenship”. 

“Our aim is to put confi- 
dence and pride bade into 
those who live in the inner 
cities. Although we are putting 
very substantial resources into 
inner dries, I do not believe 
that : pumping money into 
projects is ihe answer.

Fund-raising group joins fight against Aids 


The incidence of Aids (ac- 
quired immune deficiency 
syndrome) in Britain doubles 
every sue to eight months and 
could soon reach epidemic 
proportions, according to a 
new fund-raising group. 

Within three years, Britain 


could be in the same position 
as the United States, where 
8,000 people have died from 
the disease. Mr Martin Kinna, 
of Action Against Aids (AAA), 
said yesterday. 

AAA, whose founders in- 


clude Sir Richard 
Attenborough and Mr John 
Schlesin-ger, the film direc- 
tors, aims to raise money for 
research and advice through 
the Terrence Higgins Trust, 
named after Britain's first 
Aids fatality. 


Speaking at the launch of 
the group at the Society of 
West End Theatre in Covent 
Garden, central London, Mr 
Kinna said that drastic steps 
were needed to fight Aids, 
which had so far led to 140 
deaths in Britain. 


By Hugh Clayton 
Environment Correspondent 

The Government yesterday 
condemned a “handful" of 
small airfields for not attempt- 
ing to reduce the impact of 
aircraft noise levels. 

Mr Michael Spicer. Minis- 
ter for Aviation, said airport 
owners could minimize noise 
nuisance for residents near-by 
and deplored the "short- 
sightedness" of those who did 
not bother. 

But he said ihe public could 
not be totally protected from 
aircraft noise and the Govern- 
ment strongly supported ibe 
growth of civil aviation. 

Mr Spicer, speaking at an 
Airfields Environment Feder- 
ation meeting in London, said 
centrally imposed noise stan- 
dards had to be backed by 
local determination to keep 
noise down, with “operational 
measures like quieL take-off 
and approach procedures”. 

• The British Airports Au- 
thority disclosed yesterday 
that roof tiles had been sucked 
from two houses by an “air- 
craft vortex" near Heathrow 
Airport on Monday. ‘ 

The authority said no one 
had been injured and the 
householders in Victoria Gar- 
dens, Heston, within a miie of 
the airport, would be compen- 
sated under a special vortex 
insurance scheme.

Joint rule 
for Natal

Johannesburg— South Afri- 
ca has agreed to consider a 
plan tO set up a multi-ra cial 
administration in Natal (Mi- 
chael Hornsby writes). 

The white areas of the 
province and die KwaZulu 
tribal “homeland'’ would be 
governed by “a joint executive 
authority** with equal black 
and white membership nndcr a 
rotating chairmanship. 

The plan, which has far- 
reaching implications, was 
presented to Mr Chris Homs, 
Minuter of Constitutional De- 
velopment and Planning, in 
Cape Town yesterday by Chief 
Gatsha Buthelezi, the chief 
minhitf of KwaZulu, mid Mr

of a joint lojslative authority, 
to which the proposed joint 
executive would be account- 
able. This, in effect, would 
involve the merger ofKwaZnlu

Top Zapu official 
freed in Harare 

From Jan Raath, Harare 

. Mr Vote Mayo. aged 54, the / security section of Chikurubi 


former secretary-general of 
Zimbabwe's opposition Zapu 
party, and an Amnesty Inter- 
national Prisoner of Con- 
science, was released 
yesterday after three years and 
nine months in jaiL 

He had been arrested as he n 
stepped out of the Houses of 
Parliament in June 1982, sus- 
pected of plotting to kill Mr 
Robert Mugabe, the Prime 
Minister. 

Overtire years lawyers have 
fought to persuade the deten- 
tion review tribunal that there 
was no evidence against him. 

It was accepted at an early 
stage that Mr Moyo could not 
have been involved in a 
clumsy shootout involving 
disaffected Zapu soldiers out- 
side Mr Mugabe's residence in 
1982, because he was arrested 
before it took place. 

As he sipped his firstcup of 
tea since his arrest, Mr Moyo 
yesterday voured to return to 
politics and expressed his firm 
support for the talks to unite 
Zapu and Mr.Mugabe’s Zanu 
(PJF) party. 

He stared a “moderately 
large" cell with 18 other 
detainees in the' 


prison on lhe outskirts of 
Harare. They read and played 
bridge, poker and patience. 

Two of the others were Mr 
Philip Hartlebury and Mr 
Colin Evans, former govern- 
ment secret service agents 
detained a year earlier on 
that . they had 
ty information to 
South Africa. 

The case for their release 
goes before the High Court 
tomorrow, as lawyers yet 
again challenge the detention 
legislation. 

Mr Moyo flew to his home 
in Bulawayo last night to be 
reunited with his wife, Ellen, 
and four children. 

“It’s quite a relief; really,” 
he told me. “But my happi- 
ness will only be complete 
once my friends have left.” He 
said there were about 99 Zapu 
detainees still in Chikurubi. 

Last week he and Mr 
Dabengwa, Zapu’s military 
supremo during the liberation, 
who was detained in 1982 
after his acquittal on charges 
of treason, held an unprece- 
dented meeting. with three 
senior Cabinet ministers on 
overcrowding and other con- 
ditions at the prison. 


IRA fight extradition 

I 


From Robert Schnil 
Amsterdam 


Two convicted IRA terror- 
ists appeared in court in 
Amsterdam yesterday to fight 
an -attempt by Britain to 
extradite them. The extradi- 
tion of Brendan McFarlane 
and Gerard Kelly is being 
sought after their arrest in 
Amsterdam on January 16, 

They escaped from the 
Maze Prison in Belfast in 
September 1 983 during a mass 
break-out. They were serving 
life sentences for murder and 
other acts of terrorism. 

A third man arrested with 
McFarlane and Kelly, 26-year- 
old William Kelly, unrelated 
. to. Gerard, was put on a night 
to Dublin as an undesirable 
alien after being held for two 
weeks by. the Dutch- He was 
arrested on mrival in Dublin 
; but subsequently released. 

. McFarlane and Kelly, who 
remained handcuffed in court 
yesterday, are fighting foeir 
extradition on the ground that 
: ihfir activities were political. 

Mr Gerry Adams, the Smn 
Fein leader, who attended the 
hearing, likened the two - men 
to Dutch resistance fightere 
during the Nazi occupation ol 



Brendan McFarlane at 
yesterday’s hearing. 

The Netherlands during the 
Second World War. 

The trial was also attended 
by the Nobel Peace Prize 
laureate, Mr Sean MacBnae, 
■who appeared as an expert 
witness for the defence. 

The final outcome may nor 
be known for several months 
because of appeal procedures 


Frustrated 
arms ban 
man quits 

Washington.— Mr John 
Tower, the former ch a i rm a n 
of the Senate armed services 
committee, has resigned as 
one of the TJS arms control 
negotiators in Geneva, the 
White House said yesterday 
(Michael Binyon writes). He 
was leaving for personal rea- 
sons not because of political 
differences. 

However, friends and col- 
leagues said he had been 
unhappy in the job he took 14 
months ago, and found it 
lacked excitement At an in- 
ternational meeting in Mu- 
nich last week he said he was 
frustrated with Soviet intran- 
sigence and “did not intend to 
m ake a career out of being a 
negotiator.” 

Mr Tower, aged 60, a for- 
mer right-wing senator from 
Texas, has handled the negoti- 
ations on reducing long range 
nuclear weapons. The talks are 
deadlocked. He has made no 
secret of wanting to be the US 
Defence Secretary but appar- 
ently now sees no likelihood of

was guilty of insubordination 
and rebellion. 

“You —are not worth a drop 
of Ecuadorean blood,” he told 
General Vargas in a television 
broadcast last night 


General Vargas, sacked on 
Friday as armed forces chief 
and head of the air force for 
jmcnhnr dinafiftn, had by Mon- 
day night rejected a presiden- 
tial ultimatum no surrender his 
command of the Pacific coast 
air force base of Manta. 

He told reporters at the air 
base that he would take to the 
mountains if necessary, but he 
would not surrender. 

President Febres Cordero 
said: “At 6 »-m on Wednesday 
the military enardement will 
begin. Yon have until that hour 
to give yourself up like a 
soldier, like a worthy man, like 


a man of honour, and all the 
time yon want to do it without 
honour.” 

Representatives from near- 
by towns have Hocked to 
Manta to pledge support for 
the general. 

Residents of Cbone, where 
General Vargas was born, are 
also organizing a caravan of 
food and supplies to the base 
at Manta, where electricity 
and water have been cut off. 

General Vargas says he has 
1,000 troops at the base. They 
have been digging in, prepar- 
ing camouflaged machin e- gun 


nests and deploying anti-air- 
craft guns. 

. The President said earlier 
through a provincial governor 
that if General Vargas did not 
surrender by Last night, he 
would say on television what 
measures were to be taken 
against him. 

General Vargas appeared 
incensed by die indirect ulti- 
matum. “i have been threat- 
ened in an imprudent manner. 
If be is a brave man, the 
governor should come to me 
with a weapon (for a doe!) and 
I will show him that he is a 
coward,” he said. 


Moscow 
lashes US 
on envoys 

From Christopher Walker 
Moscow 

The Kremlin yesterday at- 
tacked Washington's call for a 
cut in the number of Soviet 
diplomats at the United Na- 
tions headquarters in New 
York as “defiant and 
unlawful” and hinted that 
such a move could threaten 
this year's summit. 

An angry protest, delivered 
to the US charge d’affaires. Mi 
Richard Coombs, by the Sovi- 
et Foreign Ministry, described 
the call for more than 100 
Soviet diplomats to go by 
1988 as arbitrary and in 
flagrant violation of US obli- 
gations as UN host country. 

“Such actions increase dis- 
trust of its policy and by no 
means create a favourable 
background for a summit 
meeung,” the protest said. 
“Such actions cannot but tell 
most seriously on the develop- 
ment of contacts between our 
countries in various fields.” 

It was “hard to square” the 
US derision, announced last 
Friday, with its recent state- 
ments in favour of opening 
reciprocal consulates in New 
York surd Kiev “and on the 
expansion of contacts and 
exchanges". 

The statement concluded: 
“The Soviet side cannot pass 
such unlawful US actions over 
and will have to draw appro- 
priate conclusions for itself” 

• Propaganda shake-up: Mr 
Mikhail Gorbachov, the Sovi- 
et leader, has appointed a new 
chief of the information agen- 
cy Novosti, continuing his 
shake-up at the top of the 
Soviet propaganda machin- 
ery. 

Mr Valentin Palin, aged 59, 
a former ambassador to West 
Germany and more recently a 
leading commentator on in- 
ternational affair s for the gov- 
ernment daily Izvestia , 
replaces Mr Pavel Naumov, 
aged 66, who had run the 
agency since April 1983. 

Novosti plays a big role in 
disseminating the Kremlin 
line to the rest of the world. It 
distributes commentaries and 
translations of documents to 
the foreign media and assists 
their correspondents. 


Sweden slowly but surely 
chooses its new leader 


From Christopher Mosey, Stockholm 


Swedes, generally speaking, 
are a careful, thorough — some 
might say boringly pedantic — 
people. 

Mr Ingvar Carisson had 
effectively been Prime Minis- 
ter for 10 days, since the 
assassination of Otof Palme, 
when be was proposed to the 
Swedish Parliament (Riksdag) 
yesterday as the new Premier. 

Just to make sure, Mr 
Carisson was proposed twice, 
once in the morning, again in 
the afternoon. Today the 
Riksdag will vote on the 
proposal, even though it is 
unopposed. 

In Sweden ordningoch reda 
(order and clarity) are encour- 
aged ai an early age. So when it 


was announced that Mr 
Carisson would take over as 
acting Prime Minister shortly 
after Mr Palme’s murder, that 
was not enough. 

Even when he was then 
proposed (once) as leader of 
the ruling Social Democratic 
Party and unanimously ac- 
cepted by the party's govern- 
ing committee, official 
Sweden remained unsatisfied, 
even though he was now de 
facto Prime Minister. 

Correct procedure had to be 
adhered to. The Speaker of the 
Riksdag, Mr Ingemund 
Bengtsson, last week duly held 
informal talks with the Social 
Democrats (his own party) 
and with opposition leaders 


and announced that he would 
be proposing Mr Carisson as 
the new Premier. 

On Monday he held formal 
talks with the parlies in the 
Riksdag. All were agreed that 
Mr Carisson should be pro- 
posed as successor to Mr 
Palme. 

It might be thought that 
yesterday's dual proposal 
would come as something of 
an anticlimax, but one in three 
of the 349 MPs duly assem- 
bled at 8am to hear it. 

There was no other business 
until 2pm when the proposal 
was put lor the second time. 

Today it will all be over 
after a vote by the House at 
9am. 


Peasants 
evacuated 
in face of 
mudslide 

Lima (Reuter) - The Peru- 
vian Government began evac- 
uating thousands of peasants 
from the foot of Marambuco 
mountain in the north, fearing 
a repeat of an avalanche that 
killed at least 13 people and 
left 1.500 homeless on Sun- 
day. 

The mayor of Huanuco 
appealed for car volunteers to 
remove up to 8,000 people. 

Officials feared the 
Quiuliacocho lagoon at the 
mountain's peak could over- 
flow as it had done two days 
previously, triggering the ava- 
lanche that buried nearly 100 
homes near Huanuco. 245 
miles north of Lima.

Marcos trying to run 
Manila from Hawaii 
an ex-minister reveals 


Former-president Ferdi-. 
nand Marcos, exiled in Ha- 
waii, still claims leadership of 
the Philippines and continues 
to direct his party, urging non- 
recognition of Mrs Corazon 
Aquino, the man who was his 
Labour Minister, Mr Bias 
Ople. said yesterday. 

“Mr Marcos continues to 
send advice and guidance by 
•phone.” Mr Ople told the 
Manila Bulletin. 

He said Mr Marcos consid- 
ers himself head of a legiti- 
mate government in exile and 
believes the United States, 
where he is seeking political 
asylum, should accord him 
the ‘•courtesies and 
immunities” of a head of 
state. 

Mr Marcos's 20-year-old 
regime was toppled last month 
in a military revolt and popu- 
lar uprising which forced the 
68-year-old leader to flee the 
country.. 

An official of the newly 
created Committee on Good 
Government estimated Mr 
Marcos’s personal fortune “at 
no less than SSbillion (£3.6bil- 
lionj and rising daily as we 
uncover more documents" in 
the hurriedly vacated presi- 
dential palace and “sale 
houses" around Manila. 

A member of the committee 
headed by former Senator 
Jovito Salonga. once jailed by 
Mr Marcos, will fly next week 
to Hawaii to examine docu- 
ments Mr Marcos brought 
with him and currently held 
by US Customs officials. 


From Keith Dalton, Manila 

All assets of the Marcos 
family in the Philippines have 
been seized and the commit- 
tee has frozen the private bank 
accounts of more than a dozen 
people associated with the 
reeii 
radio saio. 

“I feel betrayed,” was Mr 
Ople’s response to reports of 
the huge fortune amassed by 
the man he served for 1 9 years 
as Labour Minister. He said 
he and many others were 
“shocked by the enormity of 
the hidden Marcos wealth." 

“We are now confronted by 
stark evidence of hopes be- 
irayed and trust violated and 
the evidence continues to 
accumulate, to unfold almost 
daily before the world’s 
amazed eyes,” Mr Ople said in 
a memorandum to the New 
Society Movement, the KBL, 
which Mr Marcos founded 
eight years ago. 

Mr Ople announced he was 
severing all ties with Mr 
Marcos and urged his col- 
leagues to do likewise. 

From his Honolulu exile, 
Mr Marcos is in constant 
telephone contact with the 
former Prime Minister. Mr 
Cesar Virata, the KBL secre- 
tary-general. Mr Jose Rono 
and the National .Assembly 
Speaker, Mr Nicanor Yuiguez 
urging them to withhold rec- 
ognition of Mrs Aquino's 
government “because he has 
not resigned or abdicated." 
Mr Ople said. 


“This creates a situation in 
which President Aquino is 
practically impelled not to 
recognize a (parliamentary) 
majority apparently conspir- 
ing with a rival government 
abroad to topple her from 
power," Mr Ople told the KBL 
leadership. 

Mr Ople said that in a 
telephone conversation with 
Mr Marcos on Saturday eve- 
ning he asked the former 
president to desist from trying 
to run the KBL by “remote 
control” from Hawaii 

The KBL, which controls 
two-thirds of the National 
Assembly, has refused to nulli- 
fy its earlier proclamation that 
Mr Marcos won the disputed 
February 7 poll but has said it 
recognizes the legitimacy of 
Mrs Aquino's two-week-old 
administration. 

With a “people’s mandate" 
Mis Aquino has chosen to 
ignore Parliament and today 
will preside over her first 
Cabinet meeting to discuss 
whether she should proclaim a 
revolutionary government, 
abolish the Assembly and 
order the drafting of a new 
constitution before holding 
legislative and local elections. 

In the for southern province 
of Lanao del Sur. 
raeanwhile.the Governor, Mr 
A Li Dimaporo - a local politi- 
cal warlord, an ally of Mr 
Marcos - has fled to the hills 
with 500 heavily armed fol- 
lowers after he was sacked by 
the Aquino government 


Swiss to 
vote on 
joining 

the UN 

From Alan McGregor 
Geneva 

The Swiss will decide in a 
national referendum next Sun- 
day whether their country, 
with its policy of “permanent 
and armed neutrality", should 
at long last become a fall 
member of the United Na- 
tions. 

The indications are that a 
majority will disregard the 
advice of Parliament and Gov- 
ernment and say “no”. 

One reason Is apprehension 
that involvement in UN politi- 
cal processes would be prejwti- 
rhi to the humanitarian 
endeavours of the Internation- 
al Committee of the Red 
Cross, with wfafch Switzerland 
is so firmly identified. 

Another is a deep conviction 
that a nation as well served by 
neutrality as this one — and its 
banks — should simply stay 
steady and prosperous on its 
traditional course. 

Arguments that to remain 
outside the 159-member world 
organization is to avoid a 
universal moral responsibility 
have been largely unavailing 
against the wariness with 
which the public regard much 
of the prospect beyond their 
own frontiers. 

However, with the notable 
exception of the International 
Monetary Fund and the World 
Bank, this has not prevented 
Swiss membership of most 
UN specialized agencies.

Geneva gun check-up 


Geneva — Acting on a tip- 
off that some delegates to the 
UN Human Rights Commis- 
sion carry guns, officials have 
installed metal detectors at the 
Palais des Nations conference 
hall (Alan McGregor writes). 

“In principle, nobody is 
allowed to cany a weapon in 
the palais, though permission 
to do so has been granted 
under exceptional circum- 
stances, such as the visit of a 
prominent personality at risk 
from opponents," an official 
said. “No such permission has 
been applied for in . this 
instance." 


Most delegates and observ- 
ers to the Commission have 
diplomatic immunity, and 
cannot normally be asked to 
submit themselves to body 
searches. 

The gun scare came after a 
representative of the anti- 
Khomemi Mojaheddin orga- 
nization said he had been 
intimidated inside the hall by 
one of the 13-strong Iranian 
government delegation whom 
he knew to be armed. It was 
then suggested by other Com- 
mission participants that 
“they are visibly not the only 
ones".

erupts into brawl 


Frost Ian Murray, JcBsakni 
The firetaad probably i«i- 


sive round in the battle for 
control of the Herui party was 
narrowly won at dawn yester- 
day by supporters . of Mr 
Yitzhak Shamir, the party 
leader, who is due to' take over 
as Prime Minister in October. 

But is the process this first 
convention of Herat since 
1979 was turned into a public 
brawl, seriously damaging the 
responsible image Mr 
Menachem Begin fried to 
create fra* the right-wing party 
when be became Prime Minis- 
ter in 1977; 

The convention has shown 
that the pany.remaixis deeply 
and even violently split be- 
tween the supporters of Mr 
Shamir and those who prefer 
the hardline, radical approach 
of Mr David Levy or Mr Ariel 
Sharon, the controversial 
tough man of Israeli politics. 

The one person to emerge 
so for with any obvious bope 
of uniting die two warring 
factions has been Mr 
Binyamin Begin, the former 


the stage, and as he stood there 
quietly, the chant which had 
swept the party to power in 
1977 began to swell up from 
foe delegates. “Begin, Begin" 
they roared as one. Toe fight- 
ing died down as two senior 
delegates led the dumting info 
a rousing sing-song. . 

But even the charisma of 
the Begin same cotdd sot hold 
tempers for tong, as those 
behind the Shamir c a mp a i gn 
lilted up for I he first vote 
against the Levy-Sb&ron can- 
didate for the aB-important 
post of convention chairman. 

The younger Mr Begin, who 
yesterday was fighting directly 
against Mr Sharon to become 
^airman of the party steering 
committee, found himself 
roundlv abused when he sup- 
ported 'Mr Moshe Katsav for 
convention chairman. 

- It was not until midnight 
that arguments over which 
delegates were entitled to vote 
were sorted out so that the

Man in the news 

How a poor Sephardic 
immigrant made good 

. , From Oar Own Correspondent, Jerusalem 

professional m3 servants in 
his department with his ad- 
ministrative ability. In 1979 he 
was given the important job of 
Minister of Housing and Con- 
sdnetioa. 

By the 1981 efectioa his 
ability and popularity woo him 
the number two place on the 
Likud fist and he became 
Deputy Prune Minister, a 
position he still holds along 
with the Housing portfolio. 

Although he adheres to the 
mainstream of Herat flunking 
about -hanging on to afl land 
now occupied by Israel, he 
does adopt a more indepen- 
dent, dovish line on occasions. 

For example, alone among 
Iiknd minister, he supported 
the plan to withdraw the Army 
from Lebanon in 1984. This 
was a populist position, in 
keeping with his Hair for 
always seeming to know what 
the majority of voters really 
want 

That Hair has brou ght him 
something dose to adoration 
from his growing army of 
foflowos. who are sure that 
sooner or later he will become 
tite fir st poor Sephardic i 
grant to run the country. 


Mb David Levy always used 
to be good for a joke -like the 
one abort the day he lost one 
of his 12 children in the mud 
but was not worried becanse he 
could always make another 
one. • 

Nobody laughs at Mr Levy 
these days, however. He has 
beoome one of the most serious 
figures in Israeli politics, and a 
possible candidate for the 
premiership. 

His popular appeal lies in 
the reason so many jokes were 
toM abort him — he is the 
perfect example of how a poor, 
Sephardic immigrant can 
make good. 

He was born at Rabat, 
Morocco, in 1937 and arrived 
in Israel in 1957 to live among 
the many mi grants in the city 
of Bet Sbenn, in the Jordan 
valley. For 10 years he worked 
as a form labourer and then a 
building worker, repiaefog his 
French with a flowery, pedan- 
tic Hebrew, and learning a 
deep resentment of the ruling 
Lahore Party’s attitude to 
like himself, 
be was elected to the 
city council and immediately 
became deputy chairman. He 
quickly became prominent in 
the Herat party as its spokes- 
man in tire Histadrut labour 
federation. 

From there he secured a 
place high enough on the list 
of the Uknd faction to win a 
seat in the Knesset. 

When Mr Menachem Begin 
came to power in 1977, Mr 
Levy was made Immigration 
Minister. This was seen as 
' _ more than a token 
position for a Sephardic Jew to 
reward the many migrants 
who had voted Mr Begin into 
office. 

But Mr Levy astonished the

Masonic 
cover 
for Mafia 

From John Earle 
Rome 

Palermo's Freemasons have 
been alarmed by the discovery 
that when police raided a 
lodge in the chy centre they 
found several Mafia leaders 
among its membership of 
prominent magistrates, law- 
yers, businessmen and other 
professional people. 

Although the investigations 
are officially secret, the news 
has been leaked that one 
member is Signor Salvatore 
Greco, known as “The 
Senator" and a brother of 
Signor Michele Greco. “The 
Pope", who is one of the key 
defendants in the Palermo 
trial of more than 400 allied 
Mafiosi- Signor Salvatore Gre- 
co is in hiding, as is his cousin 
and another member of the 
lodge. Signor Toto Greco. 

The investigations were 
triggered by a tip-off about the 
transatlantic drug traffic from 
the Drug Enforcement Agency 
in Miami, Florida.

Kampala (Reuter) - Presi-

political activity, in a move 
aimed at bringing stability to 
war-wracked Uganda. ' 

He warned armed groups

not to challenge his rule or it 
would give him “a chance to 
crush- them forever,"Radio 
Uganda reported yesterday. 

. Mr Museveni, leader of the

Spaniards decide today on future of Nato membership 



. . ■» r 

' C.: 

\ . 

N y;-: 


Spanish voiere will indicate 
today whether they want their 
countrv to remain a member 
of the North Atlantic Alliance 
or pull out in a referendum 
unique in Nato's 36-year his- 
tory. Some 28 million Span- 
iards over 18 are eligible to 
vote. 

Security forces have been 
placed on maximum alert for 
the day. 

Sehor Felipe Gonzalez, the 
Prime Minister, dosed a 
fortnight’s campaigning at 
midnight on Monday with an 
appeal to his still undecided 
fellow-countrymen to 'come 
down finally on the side 
of'Yes". 

This would save Spain from 
an uncertain future, he said, 
and from estrangement from 
her new EEC partners. 

But the Government has 
promised to regard the 
people's verdict as binding. 

After a volte Jace on defence 
policies, the three-year-old So- 
cialist Government still faces 
the “No" votes of pacifists. 
Communists and extreme 
right-wingers. To add to its 
troubles. the parliamentary op- 
position. though fervent sup- 
porters of Nato. is calling for 
an abstention and boycott. 


From Richard Wigg. Madrid 

The phrasing of the referen- 
dum question, the opposition 
maintains, would rule out 
integration into Nato's com- 
mand structures (see panel). 


The question to be put 


"The Europeans want us. 
for the first time they have 
shown it I want to show 
solidarity, sharing a project to 
unite with the free peoples of 
Europe to guarantee peace.” 
the Prime Minister told 6.000 
party stalwarts in Madrid's 
Sports Palace. 

Neutrality was not the issue, 
Senor Gonzalez said to a 
crescendo of applause. “The 
option is to construct peace 
with the Europeans and I do 
not want Spain set apart.” 

Although he mentioned 
peace countless times, and 
heavily linked EEC member- 
ship with Spain in the alliance, 
he did not forget to appeal to 
nationalist sentiment. 

Public opinion poll experts 
were saying yesterday that 
there might be surprises after 
last week’s severe jolt for the 
Government, partly because 
of the Prime Ministers mara- 
thon efforts and partly be- 
cause the outcome was not 
likely to follow party lines. 

Leading article, page 17 


The Government considers it 
advisable in the national inter- 
est for Spain to remain in the 
Atlantic alliance and has laid 
down this should be under the 
following conditions: 

1. Spain's participation in the 
alliance will not include incor- 
poration into the integrated 
mil itary structure. 

2. The ban on the installation. 


storage and introduction of 
nudear arms on Spmish terri- 
tory will be maintained. 

3. There will be a progressive 
reduction in the US military 
presence in Spain. 

Do yon consider it advisable 
for Spain to remain in the 
Atlantic alliance on the terms 
laid down by the nation's 
Government? 




Senor Felipe Gonzalez making his final appeal for a “Yes” vote as the opposition's hot air balloon puts over its message. 




THER 




Over the past five years there has been a relentless increase in cigarette tax. 
*And for every penny of this tax increase above the rate of inflation, 1,000 people 
lose their jobs in the tobacco industry and allied businesses. Obviously, not all jobs 
lost are due to tax increases, but thousands can be directly attributed to it. As many 
as 30,000 in the last five years. 

Enough is enough. From now on, Mr. Chancellor, play fair on tobacco tax.

One suggestion, , °f which -

thority should submit - 5Q-.

whora the local authority 
could select perhaps 1ft - , . 

Though fins does indicate^ 
an area of compromise , the 
'TULF at present womd-have: r 
difficulty accepting any torn 
of central oversight. 

On land settlement, wtudr- 
bas long been a thorny proh-. 
lem between the Tamils aaxr 
ious to protect , their 
“homelands” and ‘ the Sinha- 
lese anxious to show that 
anyone can five anywhere, the' 
convoluted argument .over - 
what would .happen in the 
Eastern Province, where the 
nutter is acute, amply came 
down to a question of sum-' . 
bers. The Tamils watitaB the 
plots available to go to Tamils; 
the Government wants them 
allocate d^ oji^ of - 

**The government .scheme 
would allow Tamil settlement' 
of 27,000 plots. The total 
number of plots is 37,000, 
which leaves a compromise, 
possible concerning the re- 
ipaining 10.000. 

On ..the linkage issue, the 
two sides have drawn firm 
lines. Mr AthnhghroudafcL pot 
forward iIk proposal made at . 
all-party *«l« mat ended in 
December 1984 involving 
some implicated linking be- 
tween -the wo ; provinces-' 
through a second pannohema- 
ry chamber. ... 

This would not immediate- 
ly satisfy the Tamils but could 
be the basis erf further discus- 
sions.

that both sides have firmly 
denied they are taking place. 

The have been be- 
tween the Minister fur N 31 }?®" 
al Security, Mr Lalith 
AthulaLhmudah, and Mr 
Neelan Tirucbelvam. a former 
MP of the Tamil United 
Liberation Front (TULF). 

Like Mr Athutethmudah, 
Mr Tiruchdvarn is a Harvard- 
educated lawyer. He istne 
only former MP of the TULF 
in Colombo; most of the 
party’s politburo is now resid- 
ing in Madras in India; 

The most that either side 
will say for the record is that 
confidential contacts have 
taken place between represen- 
la lives of the Government 
and the TULF under the 
auspices of the Indian High 
Commissioner in Sri Lanka to 
clarify the issues dividing 
them. 

When pressed, either side 
will say only that the two men 
have run into each other at 
weddings and funerals. 

But the talks have in tart 
covered the three main divi- 
sive issues: the idea of linkage 
between a northern and an 
eastern province in a devolved 
system of government the 
extent of local control over 
police matters that will be 
devolved; and the problem of 
government-assisted land set- 
tlement, particularly in the 
Eastern Province. 

If agreement could be 
reached on these, the main 
ethnic problem would be on 
the road to solution, and an 
end to the bitter fighting 
between Tamil militants and 
ihe Government, and dashes 
between government troops 
and civilians would be possi- 
ble.

- Switzerland has repealed 
the administrative order pre- 
venting repatriation of Tamils - 
whose request for political 
asylum has been rejecied. 

“One cannot speak, of a 
general persecution- of Tamils, 
nor of a -real civil war even if 
the situation in the north and 
east of Sri Lanka remains 
critical? ft was officially said. 

Repatriatkm will, however, 
be ona case-by-case baas to 
ensure that individuals return- 
ing will not be endangered. 
During a six-week period 
Tamils will be free to leave for 
any country of their choice. . 

After that, they will be 
repatriated singly or in small, 
groups. Once they are back in' 
Sri Lanka, they will be encour- 
aged to keep in contact with 
the Swiss Embassy or . its 
representative to ascertain 
what is happening to them, . 

• If necessary they will also 
receive the equivalent of £30 a 
month for three-months to aid 
their resettlement 

Of 320 asylum requests- 
from Tamils so for examined, 
30 have been accepted. Anoth-

EEC urges Japan 
to curb surplus 

From Richard Owen, Brussels 


European foreign ministers 
yesterday urged Japan to lake 
prompt measures to relieve 
the “increasing strain'* caused 
by its trade surplus, and 
agreed to set up -Tegular and 
detailed joint monitoring** 
with Tokyo. 

But like previous EEC 
warnings and pleas to Tokyo, 
the statement lacked teeth. It 
came against a background of 
EEC, financial -problems as 
European finance ministers, 
in a parallel meeting, failed to 
resolve the budget crisis and 
postponed action . until next 
month. 

Britain and West Germany 
deplored the lack of budget 
discipline, with Herr Gerhard 
Stoltenberg, Bonn's Finance 
Minister, saying the crisis was 
“pre-planned" and avoidable. 

Mr . Henning 

Christopbersen, the Budget 
Commissioner, said EEC 
member states had to under-- 
stand that when they made 
political promises about the 
future of the Community the 
time would inevitably come 
when the Commission pre- 
sented the bill. 

He identified four-problem 
areas for both 1986 and 1987 
budget guidelines: the burden 
of past commitments; the 
effect on form exports of the 
decrease in the dollar ex- 


change rate against the Euro- 
pean Currency Unit; the 
British budget rebate; and the . 
cost of Spanish and Portu- 
guese accession. ~ 

Mr Christopbersen gave 
new figures _ for the British:' 
rebate, previously calculated : 
at £175 million for 1985, and 
said the new total to be paid " 
back to Britain was £267“ 
million. This, and the estimat-.... 
ed £99 million cost of the foil 
in the dollar rate, would have, 
to be. paid for in supplemen- 
tary budgets. 

Britain is this week seeking 
an injunction in the European 
Court of Justice to Mock - 
illegal" extra spending voted 
last December by the Europe- ; . 
an Parliament. Lawyerspre- 
senting Britain’s case said, the 
additional spending would 
coa Britain alone £70 million, . 
which could pay for hospitals 
or schools. A judgement is ; 
expected on Friday. 

Speaking on EEC trade' 
pohey. Mr Alan Clark, the. 
British Trade Minister, , said: 
tne statement on Japanese-, 
exports and dumping would 
have been “evea -more 
amorphous" if Britain had not 
insisted on specific. targets and: 
timetables for Japanese Con- _ 
.cessions over , imp o r ts of 
Scotch and other mhibited.- 
goods. :--L

yesterday denied rumours of

jLee writes). The older Mr

Protests mar Hong Kong talks 


Hong Kong — A small group 
of a nis t Chinese 
demonstrators protested out- 
side the Victoria barracks here 
yesterday as British and Chi- 
nese officials started a four- 
day meeting to discuss 
imple mentatio n of the Sto- 
Britisb agreement under 
which the colony will become 
Chinese hi 1997 (Nicholas 
Ashford writes). 

Their protests, however, did 
not ffawp™ the optimism that 
leaders of both delegations 


-expressed about the eventual 
outcome of their meeting. 

Dr David Wilson, leader of 
the British delegation, said the 
talks begun in a “co- 
operative and workmanHse 
way”. Mr Ke Zai-shoo, head 
OT the Chinese team, said he 
was confident the talks would 
be successful. 

The two sides are discussing 
the future status of Hong Kong 
in the General Agreement on 
Tariffs and Trade (Galt) and 
other trade matters; the sensi- 


tive question of the validity of 
British national (overseas) 
passports, the travel does- 
meats carried by. most Hong 
Kong Chinese, after 1997; and 
die setting op of a new 
shipping registry. 

It was also expected that the 
two sides would review infor- 
mally the outcome of last 
week’s urban and regional 
council ejections, regarded 
here as a milestone towards

THE TIMES WEDNESDAY MARCH 12 1986 


SPECTRUM 



ELODIE STANLEY 


Bodie Stanley, aged 31. is 
married, has a 20-monih-old 
daughter and is expecting her 
second baby this month. 
These attributes are all guar- 
anteed to haunt male solici- 
tors interviewing prospective 
female articled clerks. Bui Mrs 
Stanley is now a junior equity 
partner of Withers, one of 
London's most respected 
firms, works a nine-hour day 
and considers her job ideal for 
a young wife and mother who 
wants to work. 

Fifty per cent of law stu- 
dents are now women and the 
fall-out rate on marriage has 
dropped. “Women entering 
the law do not see marriage as 
a particular obstacle". Mrs 
Stanley says. “But in an 
interview it is still a consider- 
ation. A firm like ours invests 
lens of thousands of pounds in 
articled clerks from recruit- 
ment to qualification. With a 
woman the fear remains that 
she will marry, have children, 
stop work — or. worse still, 
want to breastfeed in the 
office." 

Now interviewing candi- 
dates herself, she thinks the 
general standard of applica- 
tions from women easily as 
good as that of men. and 
frequently ahead in terms of 
maturity.’ drive and ambition. 

After’ reading history at 
Cambridge she supported her- 
self while attending (by bicy- 
cle) the College of Law to 
study for her exams. During 
those two years she became 
adept at making 50p last 
several days, after which her 
£4.000 starting salary as an 
articled clerk with a City firm 
seemed riches. As a junior 
equity partner sharing in the 
profits of a top London firm, 
she could now expect more 
than 10 times that sum. 

So in one decade from 
university she has achieved 
what she wanted: security of 
employment and a regular 
income (which is why she 
chose to be a solicitor rather 
than a barrister). She special- 
izes in conveyancing and her 
firm is responding vigorously 
to the threat posed by licensed 

conveyancers. , 

“We welcome the disap- 
pearance of the conveyancing 
monoply as an opportunity, 
indeed a challenge, to be more 
competitive in terms of cost 
While we accept we will never 
be able to compete with the 
one-man. band above the hair- 
dressers. be he solicitor or 
licensed conveyor, we do be- 
lieve that assisted by the 
wizardry of modem technol- 
ogy we shall be able to provide 
a quality of service to the 
client that will give real value 
for money." A computer sits 
alongside Mrs Stanley’s 
Asprey’s blotter. 

It is the partnership and 
participation in the running of 
the business that provides a 
new mental challenge when 
the intellectual stimulus of the 
job itself levels out. “It repre- 
sents the fulfilment of years of 
study and hard work, and of 
course the prestige is impor- 
tant. At the end of a tough day 
vou have the satisfaction of 


Not all lawyers earn a fortune. Indeed many are so angry at what they see as a 
miserly proposed increase in legal aid fees that they are taking the Lord 
Chanrelior to court. Victoria Mather sought legal advice from the profession 


NIGEL FROSTIG 


orecem in the legal profession 
about levels of pay has reached 

such a pitch this year that both 

branches have taken the unprecedented 
step of taking legal action against the 
Lord Chancellor. 

The Bar and the Law Society are 
challenging his decision to limit to 5 per 
cent for inflation this year’s increase for 
publicly funded criminal legal aid work, 
which forms a substantial part of the 
income of large numbers of solicitors 
an d barristers. Some 7,000 of the 9,000 
solicitors 1 firms in England and Wales 
depend on criminal legal aid for much of 
their work, and two-thirds of the 5,000 
barristers are substantially dependent. 

Both branches of the profession are 
claiming that the Lord Chancel lor h as 
acted in breach of bis statntory duty to 
provide fair and reasonable rates of pay 
under the legal aid scheme, and also that 
he acted illegally in failing to negotiate 
on their pay increases. 


The profession's anger was fuelled by 
the Lord Chancellor's apparent refusal 
to take account of independent surveys 
of earnings that both solicitors and 
barristers had commissioned flam out- 
side accountants. On the bams of their 
survey the Bar is daiming it needs a pay 
rise of 30 to 40 per cent; the solicitors 
some 25 percent. 


N ot only lawyers doing the public- 
ly-funded work are feeling the 
pinch. Another survey conducted 
recently for the Law Society showed that 
all solicitors are wefi down the earnings 
league. Even before the recent competi- 
tion in conveyancing brought a drop in 
fees for bouse transactions, solicitors in 
private practice were earning less than 
other professionals raduding doctors, 
aff u iyi ft nb, bank managers, the police 
and armed forces. . 

Of course the top 10 per cent of the 
profession still have high incomes, with 


partners in the large London firms 
earning foes of £80,000 or more. Bat 70 
per cent of other firms rely on bank 
overdrafts and loans to finance their 
practices. 

Contrary to the popular impression of 
the well-heeled lawyer, the survey 
showed that in 1984 10 per cent of seif- 
employed solicitors (those not in com- 
merce or industry, or the Civil Service) 
earned £5300 or less before tax; 25 per 
cent earned £13,400 or less and 50 per 
cent earned £21300 or less. From those 
earn in g? they must find pensions and 
capital to ran their businesses. 

By contrast, solicitors in commerce 
and industry have healthy earnings and 
valuable perks more than half those 
sampled in a survey recently earned 
more than £26,000, and a quarter more 
than £434)00. Almost eight in 10 had a 
company car with an avruage list price of 
£ 10 , 000 . 

Frances Gibb 


Away from the London big 
boys, Nigel Frostig, aged 34, is 
making a decent £34,000 a 
year as a provincial solicitor in 
Berkhamsted. After reading 
law at Manchester University 
he did articles for £15 a week 
in Liverpool, which was 
“interesting” but not suffi- 
ciently so to slop him going to 
the North West Electricity 
Board at the earliest opportu- 
nity. He gained a useful grasp, 
of commercial transactions; 
but, feeling he was not a public 
sector man, he joined the firm 
he is with now in 1976. 

At first he was in their 
Dunstable office. “I was not, 
totally brave. I had little 1

and thought I bad better be

The prestige also embraces 
her husband: "1 know Nicho- 
las is proud of me. If he was in- 
different to my working or 
actively against it then I 
wouldn't or couldn’t, work." 

Nicholas Stanley is a direc- 
tor of the City wine merchants

ple dri ve to work and home to 
Clapham in south London 
each day; it is a good time to 
talk and Mrs Stanley is fight- 
ing a car telephone every inch 
of the way. She still does all 
the cooking and shopping. 


TIM HORGAN 


Tim Horgan is one of those 
who feels barristers are the 
dispossessed. A Catholic 
policeman's son from North- 
ern Ireland, he struggled 
through his Bar finals courte- 
sy of the odd postal order from 
his mother and a job as a 
gardener in the Inner Temple. 

“It was a lovely job and I 
met people on the scholarship 
committees who thought it 
mildly amusing, so I got a flat 
in the Temple for a year as a 


I’m going to get a proper job”, 
he thought. His wife, Jill, 
whom he met when reading 
law, had to keep him.

“People say they do not 
know how I manage three 
jobs: wife, mother and solici-

but I think the secret is to be

student who will nurture the

exams. 

Horgan is now 28 and 
securely ensconced as a tenant

bers, a rare radical enclave. 
“He is a venerable old social- 
ist, which suits my leanings." 
Previously his resolution to 
continue as a barrister had

which helps, and if yon are not 
it is much more difficult" Less 
Hum 20 per cent of barristers 
are women. 

Involved with the Ca m paign 
for the Bar at an early stage, 
Horgan voted to condemn the 
Government’s lack of negotia- 
tions and considered Lord 
HaiLsham of Marylebooe’s 
missive, fired to bring the Bar 
back to heel, “a disgrace". 

Legal aid work may have 
made it possible for young 
barristers to have some income 
at an early stage in their 
careers, Horgan’s experience, 
in common with his peers, is 
that when his fees are submit- 
ted to the Crown Court admin- 
istrators they invariably come 
back at a reduced rate. 

If chaos is caused by barris- 
ters insisting on agreed fees 
being marked on their briefs in 
advance, then Horgan is all for 
ft. “But I am afraid I think 
substantial change is unlikely, 
because barristers wOI never 
present a united front" 


At the end of the tax year 
Horgan reckons his receipts 
wfl] be £15,000, of which he 
will see £11,000, “which is 
better than average because I 
am in good chambers and 
getting good work". This is a 
good steady diet of aime, 
much of it to do with drugs; in 
some five years it will pay 
around £20,000. After that he 
may become one of the lucky 
few doing high qua lity crim e, 
or may have to do a mixture of 
drill and criminal work, which 
dilutes expertise in either. . 

If he takes silk his fees 
could double, but the work be 
correspondingly halved. He 
eschews red-robed ceremony: 
“I want to avoid being drawn 
into the establishment. .1 don’t 
want to be a judge..! reject the 
pomp and pomposity that is a 
characteristic of the Bar." He 
would like to be a top. radical 
barrister, specializing in 
crime. 

Having survived the lean 
years be says: ’‘Yon have to be 
determined, but I would rec- 
ommend the Bar primarily 
because ft is great fun. You are 
dealing with people first and 
foremost Each case is a little 
human drama and everyone, 
no mattes- how dreadful their 
crime, deserves to be defended

for a jolly social 

time if desperate." He had 
worked out that a place like 
Dunstable would be less Likely 
to have preconceived ideas 
about a new solicitor; insisting 
on seeing Mr Pettyfogger be- 
cause he had been the family 
solicitor for 100 years. 

There was a fairly constant 
throughput of clients — 
“there’s a lot of marital stress 
in Dunstable" — in addition to 
which Frostig thinks we are a 
more litigious society now. 
“Time was when no one 
would have dreamt of consult-, 
ing a solicitor if their vacuum 
cleaner was unsatisfactory." 
He now conducts fixed fee 
interviews at £5 for half an 
hour to get people used to 
seeking a solicitor's advice. 

This is part of the increasing 
competition in the profession, 
and not only from licensed 
conveyancers. The number of 
solicitors' firms has doubled 
to six in Berkhamsted over the 
last 15 years. “It is a very high 
pressure job now." His work is 
broadly based, unlike a City 
specialist “I find it stimulat- 
ing that after some conveyanc- 
ing you can draw up a will, 
ponder over a nice juicy 
commercial matter, do a spot 
of divorce, then pop down to 
court" ■ 

Frostig was a member of the 
Young Solicitors national 
committee and served as its 
representative on the profes- 
sional development commit- 
tee of the Law Society. The 
main changes he-has assessed, 
over the 10 years since he 
qualified are that solicitors are 
having to turn their hands to 
work previously ignored — 
“tax work was pooh-poohed 
and left to accountants” . 

There may tie more work 
and more solicitors but less 
are willing or able to cultivate 
the bedside manner needed in 
a small country town. Hori- 
zons are wider now: “If you 
had been born in 
Berkhamsted you would prob- 
ably want to get out of it for 
the rest of your life" 

Frostig lives 15 miles away 
in Radlett so as not to bump 
into his diems in the shops 
and to be a We to stand as an 
Alliance candidate for the 
county council without com- 
ment. 


He admits that people who 
are moderately competent in 
his job can earn reasonable 
money from a reasonable age 
and have a reasonably inter- 
esting life. “You can do this 
job without being a brilliant 
lawyer. What will distinguish 
you is quality of character." 


GEORGE THRELFALL 


George Threlfall is a 36-year- 
old barrister who was raised 
on the law. His father was a 
distinguished commercial silk 
on the Western drcuit and 
Threlfall’s earliest recollection 
of the potential joys of life at 
the Bar is of cloned cream 
asthe invariable by-product of 
appearances at Exeter Assizes. 

He now works on the 
Western circuit himself the 
difference being that whereas 
his father travelled and stayed 
away from home a week at a 
time, he can commute from 
Fulham. Improved transport 
and communications consti- 
tute one of the biggest changes 
at the Ban a generation ago the 
circuit was a remarkable trav- 
elling circus comprising the 
judges, the barristers, a circuit 
butler, even special drcuit 
hotels and lodgings wherein 
reposed the drcuit cellar, sup- 
porting mess dinners at which 
an all-male collegiate atmo- 
sphere flourished. 

“It was in the days when 
wives were used to their 
husbands being away running 
the empire", says ThrelfalL a 
bachelor. “Now fathers are so 
much more involved with 
bringing up the family, barris- 
ters either live in the country 
on the circuit or commute." 
The expense that involves can 
be reclaimed at second-class 
ticket leveL 


and approving of the scholar- 
ships and pupillage awards 
that have expanded the Bar's 
intake in the past 10 years 
beyond those who have a 
private income. Threlfall un- 
ashamedly remains a conser- 
vative barrister. 

“You can still surround 
yourself with agreeable com- 
panions with the utmost integ- 
rity and a broad breadth of 
interests. I have never met any 
barrister who was a slave to 
the law. They may be trans- 
formed at weekends into bal- 
loonists. And it is a young 
man's profession; you can be a 
silk by 45 and a judge at 50. 
The self-employment and lack 
of routine are both stimulating 
because ultimately you are 
answerable only to your con- 
sdence. your client and the 
court." 


Threlfall is a compassionate 
man who has to deal dispas- 
sionately with society's trans- 
gressors. “When I started 1 
was rather disappointed bow 
thoroughly ordinary villains 
looked. I have never been 
completely repulsed, neither 
do I think anyone is irredeem- 
able. 

Our whole legal system 
depends on that and anybody 
is entitled to the advice of a 
barrister. 

“The great thing about 
members of the Bar is that 
they remain free spirits. There 
is something for every type of 
intellect from the analyst to 
the advocate, but they consti- 
tute the thin bewigged line 
between democracy and to- 
talitarianism because they are 
an independent and fearless 
profession.” 


De Gaulles at 


T benamcofdeGaolfem 

France is like that oi 
Kennedy in the United 
Stales or Churchill in Britain, 
only more so. It is a name 
that symbolizes an almost 
mythical past of French great- 
ness and prosperity, before 
1 which every knee must tow, 
regardless, of political affili- 
ation. 

So rt was with an under- 
standable flurry of excite- 
ment ' that the 
Rassemblement pour la 

L . ... /n nn \ 


Republique (RPR), .which 
claims for 


itself the title of 

-Gaullist”, announced last 
November that one of the 
great man's grandsons was to 
stand as a candidate m the 
forthcoming general election. 
It was the first time since the 
general's death 16 years be- 
fore that a de Gaulle had 
returned to the political fray. 

A couple of months later, 
however, consternation: an- 
other grandson, and one fur- 
thermore bearing the 
general’s own name, Charles 
de Gaulle, had also decided 


to stand in next Sunda ys 


elections, only this time tor 
the centre-right Union pour 
la Democratic Franchise 
(UDF). The RPR felt that its 
thunder had been stolen by 
its supposed ally. 

The rival de Gaulle candi- 
dates are brothers, two of toe 
sons of Admiral Philippe de 
Gaulle, eldest son of the 
general. Charles, an interna- 
tional lawyer aged 37, is the 
eldest of four brothers in the 
family. Jean, aged 32. partner 
in a firm of chartered accoun- 
tants, is the third son. Neither 
has been in politics before 
and neither bears the slightest 
physical resemblance to his 
distinguished forebear - nor, 
for that matter, to each other. 

Charles is round, red-faced 
and jovial, with rapidly dis- 
appearing Monde hair. He is 
married with- two sons, lives 
in the fashionable Eighth 
Arrondissement ofParis, and 
plays squash and real tennis. 
Jean is taH — at 6ft 4in, be is 
2ft . inches taller than his 
grandfather - lanky, pale- 
faced and bespectacled, with 
a wide, generous smile, giving 
the impression of an over- 
grown - prep - schoolboy. He 
lives alone in a flat on the 
south-west outskirts of Paris 
■arid has a passion for sailing, 
tennis and home computers. 


A hhough. Jean appeals 
less outgoing than his 
elder toother, both 
-have an easy charm and 
relaxed courtesy bom of their 
privileged background which 
facilitates their contact with 
people from all walks oflife. 
Both report that they have 
little difficulty on the elector- 
al stump and that they are 
usually greeted with warm 
delight as soon as the magical 
name is pronounced 
Their grandfather has been 
a dominant influence in their - 
lives. As children, the Elysee 
Palace became a virtual sec- 
ond home throughout the 10 
years of de Gaulle’s presiden- 
cy, while family holidays 
were regularly spent at the 
general’s house at Colombey, 
in the Haute Marne. 

The RPR originally pro- 
posed that Jean should stand 
in the Haute Marne, but be. 
decided that be did not want 
to tag on to his grandfather's 
coat-tails. Although he says 
that he feels proud to be the 
grandson of so great a name. 


and agrees with everything he 
etimes feels 


stood for, he sometimes 
the family name is more a 
burden than an advantage. 

“I did not go into politics 
because I am called Jean de 
Gaulle", he insists, “but be- 
cause I believe confidence 
must be given back to busi- 
ness. In my job, I am in close 
contact with more than 250 
firms, and over the past five 
years of socialist rule I have 
seen investments fall, profits 
slump and redundancies rise. 
It is time to give employers 
back the taste for risk and 
enterprise, and thereby io 
create new jobs- - 

“Of course, I carry a presti- 
gious name. But for me, I am 
just a candidate like any 
other. I am not - my

grandfather's torch-bearer. I 
am first and foremost Jean. 
It's not easv sometimes being 
a de Gaulle' because your 
mistakes ^arc less easily

He nevertheless grudgingly 
admits that given his lac k of 
previous political experience 
be almost certainly .would*! 
never have been parachuted 
into the top RPR place-ofthe 
joint RPR-UDF. the Duet

mother’s family), with an 
absolute certainty of being

qualms about proclaiming 
his family heritage. He

T hen why did he not 
choose the Gaullist 
RPR party? “I belong 
to no party”, he replies. “I 
have the backing of the UDF 
with the support of Raymond 
Barre. Sixteen years after my 
grandfather's death, l don't 
feel any one party has the sole 
"right to the Gaullist labd. A 
The electorate of the UDF 
and the RPR are basically the 
same. Raymond Barre has 
totally Gaullist ; tendencies, 
more so- than certain others" 

— an evident dig at tlie RPR 
leader, -Jacques Chirac. 

Asked about the possibility 
of another- President de 
Gaulle of France, the broth- 
ers assume a mu tual bashfuL 
ness. “I have no personal 
ambitions”. Charles insists. 
Anyway, it is for The people 
to decide, not me.” Jean also 
declines to look too far into 
the future. “1 fed it's impor- 
tant to remain humble in 
politics”, Jte says. “One r 
shouldn't try to move 1 too 
fast. As you British say, it’s 
important to be the right 
man, in the right place, .at the 
right time." 


Travelling, paying his clerk, 
the cost of his chambers and

those expenses amounted to 
about £21,000, two-thirds of 
his total receipts of around 
£28.000. “Fortunately 1 have a 
small private income which 
just keeps my head above

Healing the deep scars of grief

chfldren. One hundr3

Watesvilfage m 1966 when a coal 
spoil tip slid down s mountamsde

•.No child in the village was 
untouched by the disaster and 
mostof the young survivors were 
directly involved. The great ma- 

Jfintv lu^rs m* ■tu> m L..i x. 


The discovery this week of the Challenger space capsule is bound to open emotional wounds among the thousands 


of US children who saw it explode, killing the astronauts and a teacher. How can psychologists help to overcome 
the traumas? Gareth Huw Davies looks back on the Aberfan tragedy and Penny Symon reports from America 


overwhebned them. Many 
■ were partly buried themselves: 
most bad dose friends or aMmpt 
who were IciBed. 

Yet Aberfan is also an iQnstra- 
' m>n of how resilient the young 
mind can be under the most' 
extre me circumstances. The ma- 
jority .of the ' children mm* 
.through one of the mod appalling 
peacetime tragedies with remark- 
abJy httle long-term affect, after a 
t level of. psychological care 
would be considered meagre com- 
pared with that for the New 

Hampshire children who saw their 

teacher killed in the Challenger 
space shuttle. 

. ft was at least two months after 
the disaster — long after the nation 
had reached for- its wallet to bring 
the village financial assisbmw - 
before the children of Aberfan 
were examined by psychiatrist Dr 
James. OithilL And even he was 
brought in nor by' the authorities 
but by solicitors acting for the 
families. .... 

Dr CuthfiL now a consultant 
psychiatrist at the Park Hospital 
Bridgend, Mid Glamorgan, exam- 
ined 86 children and remained in 
contact with them for four years. 
He found 63 per cent had fairly 
severe or moderately severe symp- 
toms of psychological trauma — 
they were apprehensive, noisy, - 
tearful, dazed, withdrawn, timid, 
A large number were fearful of 
loud noises — especially sirens, 
aircraft or thunder — . and of tall 
buildings. About 40 per cent 
developed bed wetting. Some of 
those who had bees partially 
buried experienced ' abnormal 
brain rhythms. 

Only 40 per cent received 
treatment, parity due to the lack of 
local psychiatric a*a*t«nBg More 
than half received no specialist 
treatment apart from the family 
doctor. What effect did the low 
level of eariy attention have on the 
children? CuthiD found that in 75 
per cent of those mo£t severely 
affected, the rale of improvement 
was relatively slow. . 

But after four years 92 per cent . 
were almost symptom free, wither 
without treat m ent, -which in the . 
main consisted of a psychiatrist . - 
talking to the child in the presence 
of a parent, often bringing out . 
details the parents had not. Some 
children, for instance, recalled .• 
horrifying stories of being buried 
alive with dead classmates. 



Students at Concord High School 
in New Hampshire were wearmg 
. party hats and woe about to start 
celebrating arotmd the television 
_set The space shuttle Challenger 
had jnst Idled oft carrying one of 
their teachers. 37-year-old Christa 
McAatiffe. The excitement tamed 
to honor a minute later as the 
spacecraft exploded in a ball of 
flame. 

The scene was witnessed by 
mflfions of schooldnldreiL Mrs 
McAoliffe had planned to give 
televised lessons from space, and 
had described the shuttle ride, as 
the “ultimate field trip”. 

“We soon had more titan 75 
phase calls from doctors, psychol- 
ogists and agencies, describing 
themselves as experts in grief) all 
wanting to come and get. ns 


‘We cried, talked and held each other’ 


through tiie crisis**, said Mr Hal 
Ppsseft, one of the schoofs four 
guidance counsellors who deal 
with the pupils' academic and 
personal problems. “We had not 
been trained to deal with anything 
like tills but we felt very strongly 
that we wanted to keep it within 
the community. Outsiders would 
have been intruding on something 
we had to work out for ourselves."

try, cried, talked and held each 
other. We accepted that we could 
have nightmares — I have had a 
couple myself — and that, although 
time heals, we know we will always 
be affected by this dreadful event." 


Psychologists from Concord's 
menial health centre were asked to 
help, but they were local people. 
One, Dr Michael Vanaskie, said: 
“Our job was to help the teachers 
handle their grief at the shocking 
death of a friend and cofleagne, so 


that they in turn could give help 
and support to the children." 

In a local radio phone- m. Dr 
Vanaskie advised hundreds of 
people “to encourage the children 
to talk about their feelings — but 
not to force them to speak if they 
did not want to - and to tell them 
that it was a normal reaction to a 
tragic event to feel unhappy and 
ary, that they should not keep it 


teachers are the most important 
adults in a child's life." 


“Films a boat space and star 
wars, with fighting ami explosions, 
are nnreal and can be accepted as 


Dr Vanaskie encouraged teach- 
ers and counsellors to talk to 
children in small groups, and to 
give the younger ones the opportu- 
nity to draw or write what they felt 
“We tried to behave like a 
family in moaning, and we gained 
solace from reaching oat to each 
other", Mr Posseft said. “When 
school reassembled on the second 
day after the accident we got 
together to read the supportive 
messages from afl over the coan- 


“We feel that we shall come 
through this because we used the 
old-fashioned methods of 
mourning". Mr Posseit said. “And 
because the community spirit was 
so strong. " 


A handful of students were 
having to undergo special counsel- 
ling, be said, “in most cases, the 
child had experienced a loss of a 
friend or relative, and bad not 
really got over iL The explosion 
brought back those unresolved 
feelings and tensions, and 
thoughts that ‘life isn't fair*." 


The children’s improvement 
was generally faster than some of 
the adults, whose continuing grief 
slowed the emotional p rogress of 
the children. CutbiH has followed 
up many of his patients into 
adulthood. “‘Some have done 
extremely well; the majority of 
victims who came from stable 
homes have soiled themselves 
out." : • 

Whifehe is sort health authori- 
ties would respond in far greater 
measure today, Cuthill is uneasy 
about the idea of a rapid deploys 
meat psychological rescue mission 
along the lines of that being 
mounted in New Hampshire: “It 
is much better to treat victims 


calmly and sympathetically until 
they are oat of shock, which can 
last weeks”. . 

Psychiatrists no longer believe 
that early experience moulds a 
child's personality in an unchang- 
ing way or that childhood trauma 
leads inevitably to later psychiat- 
ric illness. Yet those exposed to 
disaster are twice as likely to 
develop psychological disorders as 
their peers either in childhood or 
later. Dora Black, consultant child 
psychiatrist at London's Royal 
Free Hospital, says that children 
are always the victims of disaster, 
either directly or through the loss 
of parents. 

She favours rapid action 


through a specialist team set opto 
visit the scene of disasters and give 
psychological help to survivors 
and the bereaved. Cruse, the 
support organization for the be- 
reaved. is seeking government 
support for just such a team to 
complement the medical aid 
available in every major hospital’s 
disaster programme. 

White disaster involving chil- 
dren would bring a swifter re- 
sponse from the authorities today 
than at the time of Aberfan. Dr 
Black is not convinced that 
enough is being done. After the 
Bradford fire in 1985, for instance, 
the social services team responded 
readily to the families' needs. But 


the dty has only one child 
psychologist for a population of 
500.000. 

Dr Black points to the Israeli 
experience of inoculating children 
against the stress of bereavement. 
In a recent school bus accident in 
Israel resulting in many casualties, 
a team of psychologists moved in 
immediately and started to get the 
children to talk about the experi- 
ence and do drawings about it 

Work in Northern Ireland and 
elsewhere suggests that, although 
they may suffer trauma through 
disaster, children can be protected 
if they arc helped to express and 
master their anxiety. 

“If we can get children to 


ventilate their grief in this way 
they can do very much better than 
if they are left a’ Jong lime and the 
experience is su pressed”. Dr Black 
says. 

However. Dr Black is concerned 
that the frisson children might get 
from dramatic death highly publi- 
cized by television, such as 
Aberfan and Challenger, is not 
being adequately addressed. 
“When children are seeing violent 
death on TV so often, it is very 
difficult for them to distinguish 
between fiction and fact. Particu- 
larly for children who don’t have a 
personal relationship with the 
victims, it must be a very unreal 
experience.” 


Hel^ for 
suicidal 
patients 


From Ruth Lumley-Smith. 
Fawley. Wantage. Oxon 

The article on suicide (Febru- 
ary 26) raises poignant issues 
and must have caused incredu- 
lity and sorrow to nany read- 
ers. It left me gasping with 
frustration, ft is possible that 
Sally O’Brien bas never heard 
of the Samaritans? 

The treatment given to sui- 
cidal patients in hospital 
sounds unbelievably heartless, 
and I am ia no position to 
question what the author 
claims. However, on the ques- 
tion of after care, although 3 
am afraid she is right in saying 
that doctors do not have time 
to give their patients the long 
term care they may need, I find 
myself astonished that no 
mention is made of the coun- 
trywide service offered by the 
Samaritans. 

Sally Brompton * writes: 
“O'Brien feels there should be 
specially trained counsellors 
based in the community able !o 
provide long-term help for 
overdose patients." There are - 
all over the British Isles, 
although the trained Samari- 
tan volunteers do not call 
themselves counsellors, rather 
fulfilling their role as listen- 
ers. Every major city and town 
has a branch, and every local 
telephone book carries their 
number. The telephones are 
manned 24 hoars a day, and 
most centres are open to 
receive anyone who wants to 
come in for a talk between 8am 
and lOpm. 


It is vitally important to 
disseminate the information as 
widely as possible so that no 
discharged suicide (or poten- 
tial suicide) like Lucy will ever 
again go home to an empty fiat 
without knowing that at the 
end of a telephone line there is 
loving, caring, understanding 
and uncritical support 


From Dr Peier Rohde, Consultant 
Psychiatrist. St Stephens Hospital. 
London SUIQ 


Sally Brampton's article is mis- 
leading and unfair to the present 
staff at St Stephens Hospital, 
when she quotes in detail a case 
admitted who received “persona! 
hostility" and inadequate care for 
emotional needs", but fails tc 
mention that Che admission con- 
cerned took place in 1975. Si 
Stephens has. for some time, had a 
unit for self-harm cases, a team 
which reviews each incident 
offTe ring appropriate care — and 
the numbers are dropping. 


An alchemist in the wings 


Well known as a 




successful actress. 


Jody Cornwell has 


much more going on 
in her head than her 


next opening lines 


She bas just made a 
appearance on a BBC Radio 2 
religious programme. “It was 
terribly embarrassing baause, 
you see, basically Pm not", 
Judy Cornwell says. She star- 
tled the interviewer, who basi- 
cally was, by declaring: “Just 
because somebody has a collar 
on the wrong way doesn’t 
mean to say they're good 
examples of what they profess 
to be". . 

Now she sips Pemer water 
and guffaws loudly over the 
incident, before holding forth 
on Celtic history, alchemy, 
mysticism, local politics and 
international warfare. 
Cornwell is interested m all 
that, and more besides: one of 
-that rare breed of actress who 
has more in her bead than her 
. next opening fines and treats 
her profession as the job u is. 
“Going on stage is work , she 
says. “You just do yoar craft— 

that’s all it is, a skill that you 
learn. You can either do it or 
you can 't. 

“I couldn't just act. I'd be 
bored to death. Tin a jack-of- 
all-irades. 1 don’t know why 
everybody’s got to specialize 
and be expert at just one thing. 
Why cant we as individuals 
ex press ourselves in aB sorts of 
ways? We’re not just one 
straight categorized egg that 
goes into a particular 
grading.'’ 

She speaks from a portion 
of strength, as a suaxssfol 
actress, published anthOA .fo- 
cal magistrate, housewife, 
mother and member of sever- 
al action groups in her home 
town of Brighton- These in- 
clude the West Pier Trust 
which fought for several vears 

“to save our pier from being 
yanked down" and the Alco- 



Ly: v r 


praising her performance as a 
corpse in a murder play on the 
end of the pier. “1 thought 
Nvbal marvellous taste* and 
wrote him a nice letter think- 
ing he must be old and wise. 
He turned up at the theatre 
and we had a coffee and three 
months later we were 
married." 

That was 25 years ago and 
they have lived in Brighton 
ever since. Cornwell loves the 
town because “it is not too 
respectable. It's a very naugh- 
ty town, full of eccentrics and I 
think I feel at home there". 
Her own background was 
uncon vemi onaL Boro in En- 
gland, she was brought up on a 


Jody Cornwell: ‘Tmajack-oMMrades* 


vast bean and pineapple farm 
if the Australian 


holies Recovery Shelter, of 
which she is chairman. 

As an actress, her achieve- 
ments range from Stratford- 
upon-Avon to the West End 
stage. Her films include 
Withering Heights, Devil’s 
Lieutenant and, most recently, 
Santa Claus, in which she co- 
starred with Dudley Moore. 

She is regularly seen on televi- 
sion in classics . such as The 
Mill on the Floss and The 
Good Companions, and won 
an Emmy for her part in Call 
Me Daddy with Donald Pleas- 
aace. She was also nominated 

fora Bafta Best Actress Award 

in Cakes and Ale, in which she 
a yrt from 17 to 78.

Now She is to play a 
widowed bargee in the new 
BBC television series. The 
December Rose, which begin s 
this evening, followed at 
Easter by another character 
role as a “dreadful eccentric 
mystic, riddled with arthritis" 
in the ES. Benson play. 
Paying GuestsSbs enjoys her 
work but even so, she is 
happier writing. She has been 
sen obiing away all her life but, 
until recently, had never done 
anything with her work, l 
think, probably, because being 
an actress I reft it was a bit 
greedy.” 

One of her poems was once 
read at a Sussex poetry raid- 
ing, which she found embar- 
raSing- She also collaborated 
with her husband; the BBC 
arts correspondent- John Par- 
ry on a commissioned televi- 
sion script about mature 


students: Although it was' 
never produced, they were 
paid about £2,000. The dis- 
covery that she could earn 
money for what she was 
already doing for pleasure 
inspired her to write a book. 
The result. Cow and Cow 
Parsley, published in Novem- 
ber, is already in its second 
edition. She uses it as a vehicle 
for her hobby-horses such as 
the dangers of dogma, ma- 
nipulation and male chauvin- 
ism and the fact that 
“suffering is not necessarily 
the monopoly of the working 
class". Her heroine is an 
“insignificant" middle-class, 
middle-aged woman who 
finds her true self when she 
moves from Brighton to Som- 
erset and becomes involved in 
white magic, Celtic mythology 
and growing her own vegeta- 
bles. 

“At the time I wrote it, 
everyone in the media was 
rushing off into Restoration 
plays or period pieces and it 
seemed to me that nobody was 
talking about the real things 
that were going to happen in 
the 1980s and 90s.” The book 
also gave her the opportunity 
to share her interests in medi- 
tation, mysticism and alche- 
my — in which she has 
dabbled since leaving school - 
“nothing incredibly compli- 
cated, just proving things, 
finding out principles, break- 
ing things down”. 

Her happiest times are 
spent “toddling about”, as her 
-20-year-old son describes iL 
“Thin means pottering with a 
microscope, fiddling with bits 
of mould, poking things in the 
garden, generally playing" 

She met her husband after 
he had written a review for the 
local Brighton newspaper 


in the heart o 
bush which her father, an 
expen on Indian mythology, 
bought after the war. He 
returned to Britain when she 
was 13 and two years later she 
got her first stage part as a 
dancer in Cinderella after 
pouring ink on her National 
insurance card to hide her age.

feel closer to 
the child I was’ 


“In true schmaltzy fashion I 
watched the leading woman in 
the wings and as soon as she 
was ill I said T can do it* and 
went on." She then joined 
Jimmy Wheeler’s knockabout 
comedy team and was pul 
under contract to Howard 
Wyudham's theatre company 
as their youngest female 
priQcipaI.“I was a fairly terri- 
ble child”, she recalls. "And 1

“Writing is different It's

I like about it But you also

yourself. At least as an actress 
you can always turn round

THE TIMES WEDNESDAY MARCH 12 1986 



THE TIMES 
DIARY 

Jim’s story 
— latest 

As the bids dose today for Jim 
Pno^s explosive memoirs, I can 
name the man he uncovets who 
objected to Mis Thatcher being 
brought into Edward Heath's 
shadow cabinet in 1965: Lord 
Whitelaw, now her deputy and 
doses ally. Prior (who later 
became Mrs Ts Northern Ireland 
Secretary) says it was be who 
recommended her to Heath. As a 
result of the alleged obstruction 
from Whitelaw — then Oppo- 
sition chief whip — Mia T was 
passed over. Prior also reveals 
that during the Lord Lambton 
s c and al, his then mime minister. 
Heath, was so terrified of another 
“Profiimo"that he sent off Prior 
and his then principal private 
secretary. Sir Robert Armstrong, 
now bead of the dvil service, to 
question a nightclub hostess. The 
battle for the book and serial 
rights - expected to fetch 
£100.000 — is on this morning 
between The Sunday Times in 
partnership with Collins, and The 
Observer and Hamis h Hamilton. 
The Sunday Telegraph is also 
keen. When I asked Prior to 
elaborate on his revelations, he 
said: “You can't print any of this. 
My memoirs are confidential

No-panic Pan 

The publishing director of Pan,

Mehta was in Adelaide — not for 
the Queen's visit, but fix- a literary 
festival. Indian-born, Cambridge- 
educated Mehta, who founded the 
Paladin imprint before joining 
Put, was detained for an hour by 
police and fined. Afterwards the 
blase Aussie police hailed a taxi to

week. Yesterday Pan said: “There 
is no great shock or panic here . . . 
The matter is closed."

Unholy chapter 

The Chapter of Canterbury 
Cathedral has been accused of 
taking political sides and endors- 
ing the Channel TunneL The 
allegation comes from 
Canterbury's diocesan synod, 
who met a few days ago and 
condemned the signing of the 
Anglo-French agreement in the 
cathedral's Chapter House on 
Ash Wednesday as “misguided 
and insensitive”. The Arch- 
deacon of Canterbury, John 
Simpson, told the indignant' 
clergymen that the Chapter 
House was not consecrated; to 
have declined the Foreign 
Office’s request to use it would 
have constituted a political state- 
ment. Moreover, the house had 
already been used for a “CND 
meeting and a barn dance”.

Go for a British 
solution, 
says Richard 
Shepherd MP 


No Conservative MP from the 
West Midlands could claim that 
the government's performance 
over the prospective sale of Land 
Rover, Bright Rover, Leyland 
Trucks and related businesses has 
been a happy one. 

It initially appeared to have 
conducted negotiations in a way 
that gave substance to the charge 
that it is prepared to do a deal only 
with General Motors to the exclu- 
sion of other options and with 
indifference to national sentiment 
and the views of its own support- 
ers in the West Midlands. 

In so doing, it let loose the bare 
that the government was un- 
patriotic and overly deferential to 
American interests. 

Unfortunately, the original se- 
crecy of the negotiations and the 
seeming predisposition to sell to 
American companies has fuelled 
an incipient anti-Americanism 
and a widespread uneasiness that 
the governunent is not only 
without an industrial strategy but 
also favours anti-British solutions 
for our industrial problems. 

In the beginning, ministers 
seemed to be arguing that no one 
but General Motors would buy the 
loss-making truck division and 
then only if the profitable Land 
Rover were included. Sotto voce, 
an impression was conveyed that 
while Land Rover is profitable 
now, the future is not so certain 
and that a deal with General 
Motors is a more assured way of 
maintaining employment and 
prosperity. 

This Whitehall view seemed to

California has become a new 
melting-pot with a racial mixture 
as exciting, and perhaps as explo- 
sive, as New York's 100 years ago. 
Except for Mississipi, which has 
had a black majority (albeit a very 
subservient one) since the 1930s, 
and Hawaii California will be the 
fast of the United States in which 
less than half the population is of 
European stock. 

In 1950 California had a 
population of 10 million, of whom 
87 per cent were of European 
origin. By 2010 it will have 36 
million people. 53 per cent of 
them black, Asian or Latino 
(Latino has replaced Hispanic as 
the OK word for Sjpanish-speak- 
ers). The removal or ethnic quotas 
from US immigration policy in 
1965 transformed the country's 
racial intake: Asians — Indians. 
Indo chinese, Japanese, Koreans 
and many others, — jumped from 
6 per cent to 36 per cent of new 
arrivals, and Latinos (officially) 
from 21 percent to4l percent. 

What this means for the people 
of California has just been the 
subject of an interracial con- 
ference at Caltech, that most 
prestigious of scientific univer- 
sities. Is the situation a recipe for 
gloom and doom, for disaster 
scenarios? We were meeting only 
20 miles and 20 years from the 
devastating riot in the blade ghetto 
of Watts. 

Californian blacks are still dis- 
proportionately unemployed and 
aggrieved. The much more nu- 
merous Latinos are less aggrieved 
but no less deprived. The Asians, 
with their close-knit families, have 
incomes comparable to the white 
majority but they too have a sense 
of social exclusion. Will these 
disparate groups gang op against 
the once dominant whites as soon 
as they have the numbers to do so? 

We had met in response to a 
new and exhaustive study of the 
experience and attitudes of 
California’s minorities. Ethnic 
politicians were invited to discuss 
the research of some very white 
Anglo-Saxon Protestants. Mayors, 
councillors and community lead- 
ers voiced their grievances with 
practised eloquence. 

But the flavour was far from 
what might have been expected. 
Astonishingly, they were not angry 
and they did not foresee any 
dramatic response to the change in 
the population balance. One rea- 
son for that was made plain. What 
the future offers is not a non-white 
majority so much as a multitude 
of minorities, white and non- 
white. Each minority spoke for 
itself, showing little sign of fra- 
ternal feeling for the others. 

“Sure we have coalitions, bat 
they are shifting coalitions, based 
on interest You don't have to like 


be sustained by the belief that 
General Motors would withdraw 
its bid for the truck division if il 
did not secure Land Rov^. 

But surely either General Mo- 
tors wants the track division, 
p resumab ly on the basis that it can 

be made profitable, or it does not; 
and therefore only really wants 
Land Rover. If the latter is the 
case, why is it bidding for bucks? 
And if il really does not want the 
duck division, vital confidence 
can be placed in any undertakings 
in respect of employment and UK 
content? 

Fortunately, public indignation 
has widened the government’s 
options. It would seem that there 
are a number of prospective 
purchasers. The supposedly un- 
saleable now looks saleable. 

But the failure ofPaul Qtannon, 
the Trade and Industry Secretary, 
to confirm that the government 
would prefer a British solution 
underlines the widespread unease 
that the government's first inclina- 
tion is not to support British 
management and British industry, 
all other things being equaL This is 
very dangerous ground for a 
Conservative government 

It would be unthinkable for an 
American politician not to express 
a preference for American solu- 
tions where practicable. This is 
not narrow chauvinism but a 
reasonable expectation from poli- 
ticians elected to represent their 
national interest 

It is important that the govern- 
ment should reassure public opin- 
ion on this matter. A dear 
statement by Paul Channon that 
the government would prefer a 
British solution for Land Rover 
would go some way to giving the 
lie to the charge of unpatriotism. 
But in the end the public’s judge- 
ment wffl be determined by the 
outcome of the Land Rover sale.

The odd fever of anti-Ameri-

this winter is a nasty disease. 
Chauvinism and economic illit- 
eracy always nurture the latent 
mercantilism of politicians, but 
they should have grown out of iL 

Most ally of all our statesmen, 
Edward Heath asserts that Ameri- 
can —and presumably Japanese, 
German and Egyptian — invest- 
ment in British firms is the 
unacceptable face of privatization. 
In the case of both Westland and 
BL the government was merely 
trying to wean ailing firms from 
their perennial dependence on 
subsidy. 

The portrayal of multinational 
corporations as misanthropic 
agencies is as perplexing as it is 
depressing. The international 
diffusion of men and machines, 
knowledge and skill, enriches all 
nations involved in trade across 
boundaries. Neither Sikorsky nor 
General Motors is philanthropic. 
They axe looking for future profits, 
a sign that they are satisfying 
customers. 

If only capitalists had the 
evangelical teal to persuade the 
politi cians that the relaxation of 
all forms of international trade 
would enrich the world, MPs 
could stop chaang the delusions of 
protectionism.

said one Latino. “Doesn't every 
status quo find its reassurance in 
the divisions of its challengers?" 
asked a visiting academia 

Plainly the non- whites will 
never be a cohesive bloc It may 
even be wrong to portray them as 
an undercaste of impoverished, 
alienated outsiders. In the 1984 
election 67 per cent of Asians 
supported Reagan compared with 
36 per cent of latinos and a mere 
6 per cent of blacks. 

The dream of a “rainbow 
coalition”, in which all the minor- 
ities unite behind a programme of 
liberal nostrums, is made non- 
sense by the absence of any 
consensus. The Latino vote, or 
even the black vote, may in due 
course merge with the white vote, 
as the votes of the older minor- 
ities - German. Italian, Polish — 
have so largely done and as the 
Asian vote seems to be doing. 


In fact minority attitudes to 
political issues often reflect those 
of America as a whole. Race is not 
a good indicator of positions on 
women's rights, or gun law, or 
mifitary expenditure. 

Yet that does not mean that the 
melting-pot has worked. Second 
and thud generation Latinos have 
a greater sense of being discrimi- 
nated against than their parents. 
The clamour grows for bilingual 
education and trilingual ballots. 
Blacks and Latinos, being poor, 
want more welfare expenditure, 
but so do the poorer whites. 

Meanwhile the Asians thrive as 
the most successful of the new- 
comers (though some of them axe 
three or four generations from 
Japan or China and resent being 
regarded as foreigners). Last week, 
in a nationwide competition for 
the most promising teenage sci- 
entist, five of the 10 finalists were 


iaries or partners; they try to 
husband them. The multination- 
als generally invest far more in the 
human capital of their employees 
than do purely national traders. 

They pay more, they spend 
more on research and develop- 
ment and they export more than 
local firms can. Far from being a 
sinister body, the modem multi- 
national providing its relation- 
ship with the corrupting influence 
of government is not too intimate, 
is a wholly benign force. 

As the chairman of one of the 
largest British companies in the 
United States, I often catch echoes 
of American views as daft as Mr 
Heath's, but even foe mast 
nationalistic congressman appre- 
ciates that foreigners buying intoa 
corporation in Bi rmingham, Ala- 
bama, enrich Alabama. The risk is 
being taken by the foreigners. Why 
does it sound so different in

It is odd that foe Secretaries for 
Trade and for Scotland, Wales and 
Northern Ireland should spend 
time and energy looking for 
inward investment to Britain if 
transnational manufacturing and 
marketing is damaging to the UK 
economy. 

American corporations have in- 
vested more than $34 billion in 
Britain. They have not dismantled 
the machine tools shi pped 
them back to Chicago; they have 
backed British workers and man- 
agers. Britain has invested even 
more in America than the US has 
invested here. 

The Heathian form of mer- 
cantilism is one of the oldest tricks 
in the re p e rt oire of rogue-elephant 
politicians. It is childish econom- 
ics, and very bad business. Only 
the atavistic fears of politicians 
prevent the human race from 
trading openly and letting prosper- 
ity flourish.

However, the Asians, climbing 
their way to affluence through 
small businesses, are often at the 
mercy of government policy. The 
start-up grants and the procure- 
ment prefere nces once thrust on 
minority entrepren eurs are today 
threatened by budgetary austerity.

worst off Their family structure is 
weaker, they have more un-

Watts, they have turned to drugs 
rather than to violence. Certainly 
their spokesmen at the conference 
did not foresee any violence. 

In 1978 California sent to 
Washington the only Japanese- 
American to serve as a senator. In- 
1982 it almost elected the first 
black governor. California may 
have been the home of Reagan 
and Nixon and of Proposition 13 
(the referendum that pot a ceiling 
on taxes), but in social and racial 
terms it has a liberal e lec tora te 
that will vote for equal rights — 
for women, homosexuals, blacks 
and even for illegal immigrants. 

California may be pecofiariy 
fitted to accommodate the new 
racial strains. But strains there will 
ba Nowhere has the mix of a large 
.area changed faster than that of 
California in the present genera- 
tion. If it gets through the next 30 
years without an explosion, it will 
be a soaroe of hope to other places 
across the world threatened by a 
changing racial balance. 

The conference gave grounds 
for optimism. No one strode any 
matches while among in this 
racial powder-keg. But what was 
evident was not just a semantic 
regard for one another's sensitiv- 
ities. The new minorities made, 
plain that they share foe American 
dream. They want what the old 
minorities wanted: a fair chance in 
foe land of opportunity. They are 
not getting a fair chance today, but 
despite setbacks from a Reaganite 
climate they are still bopefuL 
As their numbers grow, they will 
get a larger share of power, but 
there is no sign that they will use it 
vengefully. It was notable at the 
conference that minority groups 
evinced much more sympathy for 
the deprived underdog than 
resentment for the top dog and his 
privileges. 

War, depression, drugs and 
unemployment could bring 
impossible tensions and destroy 
the sanguine verdict of this 
Caltech conference. But on the 
evidence presented, the prophets 
of doom should feel discouraged.

Tracking famine to its true source 


The spectre of world starvation, 
ever present at international meet- 
ings in foe early 1970s. has been 
formally exorcised. The World 
Bank starts its new report on 
Poverty and Hunger with con- 
fident simplicity. “The world,” it 
says, “has ample food”. 

The cause of the change, as 
European governments know to 
their cost, is the spectacular 
increase in food production since 
1970. statistically displayed in the 
World Bank's report. Between 
1970 and 1982, world population 
grew by nearly a quarter; but 
worid cereal production increased 
by nearly a third. Only in Eastern 
Europe and East Africa did people 
multiply faster than their produc- 
tion ofbasic food. In foe industrial 
world, cereal output rose three 

times as fast as population. These 
distinctions, of course, provide the 
first clues to today's problems. 

“Abundant” food, in the Worid 
Bank's phrase, does not mean (hat 
everyone knows where the next 
meal is coming from. The in- 
cidence of what it calls “food 
insecurity” has actually increased. 
In 1980, the bank estimates, some 
340 million people received so 


little food that their growth was 
stunted and (heir health seriously 
endangered. Some 730 million 
received too little to support an 
active working life. (These figures, 
necessarily very rough, are likely 
to be underestimates since the 
Worid Bank excluded China, for 
want of sufficient information). 

A good sign is foal although 
numbers increased, foe propor- 
tion of worid population in there 
miserable categories declined 
slightly, foe improvement was 
greatest in fast-growing East Asia 
and the Middle EasL But in South 
Aria, on tire Worid Bank's figures, 
there are three times as many 
undernourished people as in the 
whole of sub-Saharan Africa, the 
area where hunger has now 
touched the world's conscience. 

Television news shots over the 
past year have vividly illustrated 
the contrast between starvation in 
poor countries and food surplus in 
Europe. Bui the World Bank 
makes a point of greater subtlety 
and importance: food and famine 
can co-exist in much doss 
proximity, even in the same 
village. A study of four particu- 
larly disastrous recent fam ines 


demonstrated that a sudden food 
shortage was not foe main cause: a 
sudden drop in income is more 
often foe original explanation. 
Problems of food supply, as the 
starving and destitute congregate 
in refugee camps, then aggravate 
the trouble; they do not always 
begin it. 

This points a lesson which 
many governments, and even 
weD-intentioned relief agencies, 
have sometimes been slow to 
learn. Dumping free food on a 
group of undernourished people 
may simply worsen the problems 
of the local fanners; providing foe 
hungiy with income to bay the 
food on offer in local markets may 
be much more sensible. 

In this report, the Worid Bank 
struggles to distinguish between 
chronic and temporary food in- 
security. But both, it points out, 
can be exacerbated by the wrong 
policies. This report is, as much as 
anything else, a sign of changed 
times, even in the international 
institutions: it emphasizes the 
need to make famine relief cost- 
effective. 

The World Bank has many 
examples of expensive mistakes 


on which to draw, countries which 
build op enormous stocks of food 
which are expensive to manage 
rather than build up foreign 
exchange reserves which in an era 
of world plenty can be used to buy 
needed food; coon tries which 
over-value their exchange rates to 
keep down the price of imported 
food, only to find they have 
thereby destroyed domestic 
production; countries which sub- 
sidize consumer prices to the 
point where a healthy black mar- 
ket buflds up in buying food cheap 
from the government and selling u 
back at the higher, producer price; 
or, where cheap cereals are sold on 
to feed livestock, not fed to 
children. 

The lesson it seeks to drive 
home is that people lack adequate 
food for a diversity of different 
reasons; unless their governments 
know who, and why, they will 
spend a lot achieving little. And 
the more they spend, foe likelier 
they are to slow down economic 
growth, which is the only long- 
term route to food security.

ry this tonic on 
medical ethics 


A week is 8 long time in medical 
law and ethics! GflBck, Warnock 
and Savage have afl featured in the 
recent news, together with the less 
familiar name of Caroline 
Turvifle, who received record 
damages for n eglige nt treatment 
Four medical dramas have been 
playing in different legal theatres. 
Which is foe best way to resolve 
the dilemmas posed by medical 
law and ethics? 

Doctors often critidze lawyers 
for presuming to set standards in 
medicine. The law, they say, 
insists on ridiculously high stan- 
dards which lead to defensive 
methane. If the opposite of defen- 
sive medicine is aggressive, attack- 
ing or offensive medicine, then 
this might not herald disaster. But, 

in any event, the fear of legal 
regulation engendering defensive 
medicine is largely illusory. For 
what is the legal standard of 
medical negligence? It is none 
other than the standard of care of 
the ordinary doctor. Doctors are 
not negligent if they act in 
accordance with foe practice or 
practices accepted at the time as 
proper by a responsible body of 
medical opinion, even though 
other doctors adopt different prac- 
tices. The law does not impose 
herculean standards. If anything, 
it is too deferential to doctors in 
effectively allowing them to set 
their own standards. 

If doctors object to any stigma 
in being described as negligent, 
there is a ample solution. The 
considerable power of the medical 
profession should be directed 
towards securing appropriate pro- 
vision for those teamed by opera- 
tions, perhaps through a statutory 
compensation scheme. Then there 
would be little need to sue and 
those who cannot pin their suffer- 
ing on someone rise's negligence 
would also benefit 

The medical establishment 
should resurrect the 1978 Pearson 
report on civil liability and 
compensation for personal injury 
which recommended that the state 
provide a weekly payment to all 
children “suffering from a long- 
term mental or physical 
handicap”, whatever the cause. 

As we are still concerned to stop 
incompetence, the need would 
remain for some form of disci- 
plinary procedure within the 
medical profession. But public 
consideration of patients' private 
traumas, as in the Savage inquiry, 
seems legally and ethically un- 
acceptable. 

We cannot tell what counts as 
an error of judgement until we 
deride on the acceptable prin- 
ciples of obstetric practice. Incom- 
petence can be assessed only by 
reference to standards of com- 
petence. Counsel for the employ- 
ers and accusers of Wendy Savage 
tried to . distract us from the 
questions of principle. He began 
by aigning that the case should not 
be presented as “one between the 
impersonal imposition of technol- 


ogy and the fr eed o m of a woman 
to choose how t when and in what 
maimer she will have her baby”. 
There is some, but not much, 
merit in that The good point is 
that a woman may choose a “high- 
tech” birth, so that patient power 
cannot be automatically equated 
with natural childbirth. But foe 
misleading inference is foal we can 
assess practice without establish- 
ing principles. 

On the contrary, if the appro- 
priate standard for obstetrics is to 
allow mothers as much freedom as 
is practicable, then Wendy Savage 
is much more likely to be vin- 
dicated than if foe standard of 
competence is deemed to involve 
frequent and early recourse to 
caesarean operations regardless of 
the mother's wishes. 

Good guidelines are conducive 
to good medical practice. They 
can be brought to foe attention of 
all doctors, midwives, nurses and 
patients. They can be used in the 
education of future medics. They 
can concentrate media, and hence 
public, attention. They can be 


Now the DHSS, GMC and 
BMA are all in the business of 
issuing guidance when they think 
fit, as m foe Gillick context of 
contraception for teenagers. 
Occasionally one or more will 
commission a study into appro- 
priate principles. Warnock, for 
example, was instigated by the 
DHSS in response to concern over 
in vitro fertilization. But such 
investigations are isolated, vari- 
able in quality and highly selective 

in their choice of subject matter. 

We deserve a more systematic 
approach to medical law and 
ethics. The courts can provide 
only sporadic, ex post facto re- 
views of problems, depending on 
the vagaries of litigation. Nor is 
the traditional English court 
procedure appropriate for consid- 
eration of the vast array of 
medicaL scientific, moral and 
economic evidence which is ger- 
mane to the establishment of a 
comprehensive code of medical 
law and ethics. 

The Warnock Committee was 
an ad hoc body which produced a 
flawed report. Nevertheless, it had 
the beginnings of a good idea in its 
recommendation of a new statu- 
tory authority with, inter alia, an 
advisory role. We should develop 
this proposed quango into a 
permanent advisory committee. 

What we need, then, is a Super- 
Wamodc a standing commission 
to keep under review the whole 
range of issues in medical law and 
ethics. In time, it could produce 
codes of practice on obstetrics and 
other brandies of medicine. It 
could develop a coherent phil- 
osphy of pattern-doctor partner- 
ship, for example, based on a 
doctrine of informed consent. It 
would aim to spell out patients' 
rights and doctors' duties.

Roger Scruton has just published a 
book called Sexual Desire. “It 
took me a day to get through the 
first ten pages,” admits Anne 
BiDson, who was sent by Time Out 
to interview him, “and two days to 
get through foe remaining 418, 
although I only managed that by 
skipping Chapter Three, two 
appendixes, 26 pages of notes and 
two indexes. And a few other 
bits.” 

The reason she found it such 
heavy going, of coarse, is that 
Scmton's book is about foe philos- 
ophy of sex. “The experience of 
desire is fundamentally problem- 
atic,” he explained to her, “be- 
cause it forces us to think of 
another person both as two things 
(as the self looking out and as foe 
body through which he looks) and 
as one thing (foe body which is a 

self).*' 

Any of you who are plagued by 
thoughts like this on a first date 
will go straight to the Scruton 
book. IL like Anne Billson, you 
find it all a bit baffling, you may 
prefer to go straight to a small (300 
pp) volume which I have just 
published called The Philosophi- 
cal Basis of Asking Someone In 
For Coffee, which seeks to exam- 
ine the initial stages of a relation- 
ship rather than survey foe whole 
tiling . 

The first chapter, just to make 
things easy for everyone, is a brief 
history of foe coffee trade. The 
second, more gritty, gets down to 
the first big question: just what do 
we mean by a cup of coffee? Can 
we truthfully identity foe brown 
liquid in the cup for which we are 
being asked in as coffee, or is it, 
philosophically speaking, some- 
thing else? 

For a start, some thing like 95 
per cent of a cup of coffee is 
actually water. The rest may be 
partly milk and sugar, and even 
the brown flavouring and colour- 
ing may only be nominally coffee. 
Freshly brewed coffee uses real 
coffee beans, but only as an 
infusion - after all, the coffee 
grounds are thrown away and not 
given to the guest, who is allowed 
only to have such extracts as are 
removed in five minutes awHng 
In a very real sense, therefore, a 
cup of coffee is hardly coffee at all, 
only 2 per cent at most 

Still with me? What this means 
is that someone who says to you, 
“Would you like to come in for a 


crushed remains of part of foe 
coffee plant?” Yet this question, 
much more satisfying from a 
philosophical point of view, may 
be less satisfactory as a social 
statement. Examination of the 
works ofNieosche, Heidegger and 
Sartre show that this problem has 
never been tackled before. We are 
venturing into wildly exciting new 
territory here. 

Even more exciting is foe next 
chapter, on the symbolism behind 
the question: “May I take your 
coat?” When a man takes a 
woman's coat, he is malting her 
comfortable, yes, but he is also 
beginning to undress , her. The 
implications are enormous. A 
woman may reject the symbolism 
by insisting on retaining her coat 
scarf and gloves, which of course 
makes it very difficult to hold the 
cup, but on the whole I would 
advise it 

The next few chapters centre on 
the question: “Shall I put on a 
record?" The assumption here 
seems . to be that coffee will 
somehow taste nicer with music 
being played. Exhaustive research ■ 
(which 1 have put into 15 pages of 
appendix) show that this is not so. 
The ears have no effect on the 
taste of food. 

What is happening here is 
something quite different; the host 
is attempting to dominate the 
guest's senses, one by one. Feeling 
(the removal of toe coat), taste (foe 
coffee-liquid) and' now hearing 
(level 42). The next assault may 
well come on foe eyes (“Have you 
seen Lord Snowdon’s new book of 
photos?”). 

My advice is to resist this 
domination at the record stage by 
saying: “If we must have a record, 
do you have any albums of 
Winston Churchill's war 
speeches?”, thus suggesting that 
although you do like men, you 
prefer them to be older, wiser and 
preferably running the nation. It 
also kills foe conversation. 

By foe end of the book, if you 
have followed my advice, you will 
be holding a cup of coffee in your 
gloved hands, standing up ( never 
accept a seat) and listening to tire

Europe. Such estimates of his mind, as politicians do, but 
Spain's military potential re- found himself saddled with the 


referendum. 

His hope was that the right- 
wing . opposition would help 
him but by urging Spaniards to 
vote yes anyway. But the 
opposition saw the prospect of 
domestic political gain from a 
government defeat and re- 
solved to abstain. No wonder 
the average Spanish voter is 
said to be bewildered by the 
arguments set before him. 

Spain can survive without 
Nato and Nato without Spain. 
-But the referendum matters. 
President de Gaulle’s decision 
to march French troops out of 
Nato in 1966. while allowing 
the country to remain a politi- 
cal member, was a blow from 
which the alliance has never 
fully recovered. 

A no vote might encourage 
other partners whose relation- 
ship with the Brussels 
establishment has been 
strained. It would be seized 
upon by Americans who re- 
gard the Europeans as awk- 
ward and ungrateful allies. The 
anti-Americanism which lies 
behind much of the opposition 
to Nato in Spain can only add 
to this impression in Wash- 
ington. 

As for Spain, while a de- 
cision to leave Nato might not 
damage its security or eco- 
nomic growth, it would mean a 
retreat from the front rank of 
the European powers. It is 
significant that Mr Gonzalez 
has been trying hard to under- 
tine the “European'’ as op- 
posed to the transatlantic 
character of the Alliance. 

Meanwhile Nato’s patience 
must continue - for 24 hours 
anyway. It must have been 
tempting for Lord Carrington 
and others to have expressed 
their irritation with Spain and 
its political parties winch have 
brought about an unnecessary 
crisis. That would have been 
the best way to ensure the one 
result which both Brussels and 
Madrid so desperately want to 
avoid • 


A DELAYED LETTER TO MR GORBACHOV 


Mrs Thatcher* a rejection of the 
Soviet call for a nudear weap- 
ons freeze can have surprised 
no-one - least of all Mr 
Gorbachov who issued the 
invitation two months ago. 
The only cause for comment in 
the Kremlin must be the length 
of time that it took her to 
reply. 

The most encouraging, part 
*.of the Russian leader's com- 
prehensive offer on January 15 
concerned intermediate-range 
nuclear forces (INF) which he 
hoped to see withdrawn from 
Europe in eight years’ time. 
However, while he ceased to 
insist ' that the British and 
French nuclear deterrents 
should, be included in tiiis 
Soviet-American deal, he de- 
manded that these should at 
least be frozen at existing 
strengths and all moderniza- 
tion plans dropped. 

The United .States and 
France have already turned 
down this condition and it was 
vonly a matter of time before 
Britain followed suit In the 
first place the British arid 
French deterrents are strategic 
forces, not European theatre 
weapons — and should be 


considered, if at all, in that 
- . context They arc moreover 
last-ditch deterrents, small by 
comparison with the stock- 
piles of the superpowers. They 
are aq inedudble minimum as 
far as their effectiveness is 
concerned. There might come 
a time when they should be 
considered — but that time is 
not now. 

This applies to their quality 
as well as their size. A freeze on 
modernization would rule out 
the purchase of Trident-2 mis^ 
sites by Britain — forcing the 
Government to rely upon the 
existing Polaris system for the 
rest of the century. But Polaris, 
even with the new £l,000m 
Chevaiine warhead, is already 
of doubtful effectiveness 
against Soviet anti-missile de- 
fences. It would hardly have 
much deterrent value left by 
the 1990s. 

Perhaps what took Number 
Ten so long was the wording of 
its dismissal, of Mr 
Gorbachov’s proposal for a 
nuclear-free world by the end 
of the century. Mr Gorbachov 
will understand the reason 
why — but it will not be as clear 
to the anti-nuclear lobbies, at 


whom - the original proposal 
was doubtless directed. 

There is no way at present 
that lhe West could accept the 
concept of a non-nuclear bal- 
ance, while the Soviet 
superiority in conventional 
and chemical munitions re- 
mains. The only question is 
whether it might not have been 
wiser to embrace the idea — 
and let the practical difficulties 
emerge in the course of time. 

The first of these difficulties 
is the Russian proviso that the 
White House drops its Strate- 
gic Defence Initiative (SDI) - a 
condition which the Ameri- 
cans would never, at present, 
agree to. 

it is also questionable 
whether Britain was wise in 
echoing the American counter- 
proposal. This called for an 
agreement on conventional 
forces and for discussions on 
regional and bilateral issues as 
well as on the long-standing 
grievance over human rights. 
The Soviet Union is vulner- 
able on all these points. But to 
raise them in this context does 
not strengthen the Western 
position. 


NEXT AUTOCRAT IN LINE 


So far in 19S6 untidy but 
unstoppable popular revolt 
has cost the jobs of two 
undemocratic American allies. 
And the year is young. There 
are other autocrats with less 
^ than savoury reputations- who 
"are candidates to follow ex- 
Presidents Marcos and Du- 
valier into exile. 

One of the more eligible 
appears to be President Chun 
Doo Hwan of South Korea. 
President Chun makes, no 
pretence of running a demo- 
cratic state. He hasa penchant 
for banning political parties, 
locking up his opponents and 
ordering his soldiers to fire on 
student demonstrators. His 
country is a poor advertise- 
ment for western political 
lvalues. Nonetheless, there are 
strong reasons why the South 
Korean leader is likely to keep 
his presidency for some time 
to come. 

Economically, South Korea 
is nothing like Haiti or. the 
Philippines. It. is more deeply 
in debt than the Philippines of 
the last Marcos years; but its 
economy has not stagnated. 
- Rather It has enjoyed rapid, 

' export-led growth. White the 
Philippines feces repeated 
rescheduling of its debt and 
continued bard bargaining 
with the IMF, South Korea is 
expected to become solvent

Need to invest 
in Falkland fish 

From Mr James Provan, MEP 
for Scotland North East (European 
f Democrat (Conservative)) 

> Sir, Your leader of March 10 
draws attention to the presence of 
■ a large number of deep-sea fishing 
vessels operating within 200 miles 
of the Falkland Islands but totally 
underestimates the threat which 
the build-up of fishing by East 
European and oriental vessels 
poses to the local fish stocks and 
Lhe development of onshore facil- 
ities which could provide a major 
boost to local employment 

Over the last three years the 
number of vessels operating in the 
1 waters around the Faiklands has 
increased enormously, as has the 
level of catches. An estimated 
$262 million worth of fish was 
taken from these waters in the first 
nine months of 1985. 

Offshore fishing provides a 
major opportunity for the Faik- 
lands economy and for the better- 
ment of relations with South 
America and with Argentina in 
particular, h is only if the United 
Kingdom, which has been assured 
that financial support would be 
available from the European 
Community, is prepared to invest 
in the islands' fishery resources, 
that the Argentinians will see that 
we do believe in the long term 
future of the Faiklands. 

The Food and Agricultural 
Organisation must be encouraged 
to produce their report as soon as 
possible. Thereafter it will be up to 
the British Government to nego- 
tiate an agreement with the 
contiguous states. If lhe United 
Kingdom does not maintain the 
pressure for a multilateral agree- 
ment there is a danger of some 
countries coming to bilateral 
agreements with Argentina. 

Yours faithfully.

MPs 9 obligations 

From Mr Michael Braitsford 
Sir, I was sad 10 read the news of 
Mr Parris in your newspaper 
(report, March 5). He is. for die 
time being, my representative in 
the House of Commons. By way of 
obtaining this public office Mr 
Parris and his associates in the 
Tory party did make several 
appeals to the sense of responsibil- 
ity and loyalty of the electorate of 
West Derbyshire, when he asked 
for the continued .support pre- 
viously given to his long standing 
(and sitting) predecessor Mr 
James Scott-Hopkins. 

On this basis, along with thou- 
sands of others, I gave him 
support for the present terra; but 
we now learn, by way of the public 
media, that he has decided to set 
West Derbyshire aside in favour 
of other personal opportunities. 

Was it not implicit, both in the 
asking and in the taking, that the 
mutual arrangement betwen Mr 
Parris and the electorate would be 
for the term of the Parliament? Is 
this not therefore a breach of faith 
on his part? Caveat empior? 

Yours truly,

Finding a fake 

From Mr Graham Chainey 
Sir, Nothing is more bewildering 
to the layman than the way 
priceless masterpieces keep turn- 
ing into worthless fakes, and vice 
versa. The Getty Museum's 
Annunciation (Spectrum. March 
5) is only one case out of many. 

Last December a Canaletto, 
previously dismissed as a fake, 
was certified genuine and sold for 
half a million pounds, while its 
twin in the Queen's collection, j 
after having given pleasure to | 
thousands of people, was sum- 1 
manly relegated 10 the status of ,

From Mr Robert Elliott 

Sir, It was most encouraging to see 
in your leader yesterday (March 4) 
that you support the new move by 
the Manpower Services Commis- 
sion to “redirect the attention of 
policy-makers, employers and 
parents'* to “what is arguably the 
most important sector of educa- 
tional provision in this country” 
that is, to further education. 

Those of us who toiled and 
suffered for so long under the 
withering contempt of practically 
all the rest of British education, 
and until now, of the MSC itself 
for our aims and methods, for our 
compassion for our non-academic 
students, for our championship of 
the virtues of education -plus- 
training, that is. of craftsmanship 
— in effecL, for our unceasing effort 
to bring the Butler/Ede dream of 
19*44 into reality — cannot fail to 
find some comfort in this new 
shift in the wind, even though it 
blows out of the freezing wastes of 
MSC and market-force philos- 
ophies. 

There are two unassailable prin- 
ciples which are imperative for 
inclusion in any policy the MSC 
may put forward. 

One is that education/trainmg 
must be student-orientated: other- 
wise the students are bound to see 
it as no more than a means to 
exploit them as an employer 
would exploit the use of a ma- 
chine. 

The other is that students must 
be sure that after their 
educaiion/uaining they will ob- 
tain stretching, honourable 
employment. Otherwise any 
advancement in their 
education/training will merely 
make them even more likely to 
rebel against the waste of their 
talents and potential, and hence 
against private and public author- 
ity. 

Yours etc.

Language tuition 

From Professor Nigel Reeves 
Sir, Mr Robin (March 6 ) has 
identified a significant weakness 
in our training of engineers - an 
indifference to foreign language 
competence which fundamentally 
binders the British ability and 
even desire to collaborate with our 
European neighbours. Instead, 
internationalism has become 
identified with American 
collaboration, as we have seen in 
ample measure recently. 

Happily not all universities 
have been so totally blind to 
introducing their engineering 
undergraduates to the linguistic 
and professional realities of Euro- 
pean industry and technological 
research. 

To take one example, the En- 
gineering Employers Federation 
has pump-primed a scheme at the 
University of Surrey whereby 
engineering students with an ade- 
quate school knowledge of French 
and German can receive two 
years' language tuition over and 
above their engineering syllabus, 
attend a month-long language 
course at the end of their first year 


million as “one of the greatest art 
discoveries of the post-war 
period” and now dismissed as 
“the most costly pieces of dirty old 
paper in history” (report, Feb- 
ruary 21 ). 

Surely a work of art's value ties 
in its inherent beauty, not in the 
identity, or attributed identity, of 
the hand that executed iL One 
might feel less cynically towards 
the world of art experts and 
museums if, when some master- 
work was discovered to be “only”

penny they had paid for it

‘The Holocaust 9 

From Mrs Mary Purves 
Sir. I too shared Dr Polonsky's 
feelings (March 6 ) on reading Piers 
Brendon’s review of Martin 
Gilbert's book, claiming that the 
Poles tried to finish Hitler's work 
after the war. 

I worked in the Press office of 
the British Embassy in Warsaw at 
the lime of the Kielce pogrom in 
July. 1946. 

I can see now the anguished face 
of a Jewish journalist who trav- 
elled to our office especially to 
deny certain accounts, to tell us 
that it had been provoked by the 
“dumping” on the already ruined 
economy by Soviet authorities of 
trainloads of Jewish refugees from 
the East, with no local support or 
Polish connections and no pro- 
vision for their welfare. 

We all knew that thousands of 
Polish intellectuals, priests, and 
professors had shared the fate of 
the Jews in the camps. In his 
prison diary the late Cardinal 
Wyszynski wrote that he alone 
had not been rounded up, de- 
ported or killed, of his whole 
seminary year, and we heard of so 
many Jews saved by their Polish 
neighbours. 

Yours faithfully.

endeavour to implement the 1944 
v Education Act, to comment that if 
j that great Act had been achieved 
. many of our present troubles 

. might have been avoided, 

f It was defeated partly by eco- 
I nomic rireumstanoe but mainly 
. by attitudes of mind. We never 
’ developed that area of education 
• covering the majority of pupils to 
which, perhaps misleadingly, the 
name ” technical” was given, 

| This failure meant that when 
’ comprehensive schools came into 
being they continued to be de- 
>■ ficient in provision for lhe major- 
1 ity, and indeed there is sadly 
ample evidence in many cases of 
: glorying in this inability. 

What is to be done? I have 
> ceased to believe that, given the 
school teaching profession as it is 
at present recruited and con- 
stituted, it will be really possible to 
bring about more than cosmetic 
changes. You rightly point to the 
further education colleges as in- 
stitutions of a different outlook 
but they could not easily handle a 
vast increase in numbers nor are 
they equipped to deal with the 
under 16s. 

Yet one thing must surely be 
clear. The 14-19 period must be 
seen as a unity. The Government 
must face squarely the inability of 
so many teachers to develop what 
is required, not only post- 1 4 but in 
the primary and lower secondary 
area as welL One sees this exem- 
plified in the attitudes of so many 
in education to the MSC. Educa- 
tion deserved MSC, if only as a 
remedy for its own shortcomings. 

Let no one think therefore that 
the changes required will come 
about easily. But the lesson of the 
past is clear. Come they must 
even if Government and people 
have to be as drastic as your own 
proprietors. Urgent studies should 
be undertaken in preparation fora

Graduates of this scheme are 
fully effective in two countries. 
They are not only linguistically 
proficient (for this is only the 
surface achievement) — they have 
an insight into how foreign in- 
dustry works, into its ethos and its 
mechanics. That is the real gain, to 
which foreign language study 
contributes as a useful instrument 
We cannot doubt that collabo- 
rative European projects will 
increasingly be the only way 
forward as technological innova- 
tion becomes more complex and 
thus more expensive. Foreign 
language training and work experi-

Satanic drills 

From Mr John Braiby 
Sir, It seems that oil is more 
important than the beauty of 
England's countryside. 

Amoco will be drilling on 
Fairlight. at a beauty spot outside 
Hastings where I live. Huge beast- 
like lorries will run down pretty 
lanes, black ugly nodding donkeys 
will at first perform, and the smell 
of oil will drift on the air over 
Hastings, obliterating the ozone. 

In two wars our soldiers have 
fought and died for the beauty of 
England. It must not be allowed 
that the filth of the bowels of this 
earth be spewed up over its fair 
face and complexion. 

This is a cri de coeur. 

Yours sincerely.

Cover-up 

From Mr Alan J. Reynolds 
Sir, Dr Hickman (March 7) asks 
what purpose the dust jacket of a ’ 
hardbound book serves. It pre- 
serves the pristine appearance of 
the binding it conceals. 

The wrapper - or more prop- 
erly its absence — also allows 
dealers in second hand modern 
first editions to say; “Of course, ; 
without the wrapper, it really isn’t 
worth more than ...” or to 
advertise in their catalogues “1st ' 
edn. in wrapper” for twice as - 
much as otherwise they would ask. 1 
In short if Dr Hickman wants to - 
read his books, be should throw 
away the wrapper straight away; if ; 
he wishes to deal in them, he must * 
never dispose of the wrapper. ‘ 
Ironically, the more people who ■ 
(a) read their books, and fb) 1 
discard the wrappers, the more 1 
expensive the unread, wrapped, 
books will be. Catch 22 ( 1 st edn. in * 
wrapper £40). 1

MARCH 12 1938 

“On this Day" February 17 
referred to the abortive Nazi coup 
in Austria in July, 1934. That 
failure did not deter them from 
conspiring against the government 
of Chancellor Kurt von 
Sckuschnigg who. on February 12, 
was compelled at Berchtesgaden to 
agree to Hitler’s terms for 
surrender. On March 12 German 
troops entered Austria and the 
next day Hitler proclaimed its 
union with Germany. 


AUSTRIA 

SURRENDERS 

HERR HITLER’S 

DEMANDS 

From Our Own Correspondent 
VIENNA, MARCH 11 
. . .This afternoon Herr von 
Schusehnigg. the Chancellor, was 
presented with a German ultima- 
tum to postpone the plebiscite be 
announced on Wednesday. When 
this ultimatum was received Ger- 
man troops had already been 
mobilized on the frontier. Herr von 
Schusehnigg 3greed to the post- 
ponement on the condition that 
the Nazis should in future refrain 
from disturbing order in Austria. 
Herr Hitler's reply to this was that 
Herr von Schusehnigg must resign 
the Chancellorship in favour of Dr. 
von Seyss- Inquart, the Home Min- 
ister appointed at Herr Hitler's 
behest after the Berchtesgaden 
agreement. 

Other conditions made by Herr 
Hitler were that two-thirds of the 
seats in the Cabinet should be 
handed over to the Nazis, that the 
National-Socialist Party in Aus- 
tria must be given full and unre- 
stricted liberty, and that the 
Austrian Legionaries (a force of 
some 30,000 Nazis who fled from 
this country at the time of the 
unsuccessful Nazi rising in July, 
1934, and afterwards were drilled 
and regimented in Germany) 
should return to keep order in 
Vienna. 

CHANCELLOR'S 

BROADCAST 

At 6 o'clock an announcement 
on the Austrian wireless stated 
that the plebiscite had been post- 
poned. 

Soon after half -past 7, the time- 
limit which was put to the ultima- 
tum, Herr von Schusehnigg. 
without any preliminary warning, 
broadcast an address to the nation. 
In a voice firm but charged with 
emotion, be said that the march of 
German troops into Austria had 
been threatened “for this hour” 
unless his Government resigned, 
and unless Herr Mikias, the Presi- 
dent, appointed a new Government 
at the nomination of the German 
Government. . . 

The President had charged him 
to inform the Austrian people that 
they yielded to force. Because they 
would not allow German blood to 
be spilt at any price even in this 
hour, they had ordered their 
troops, in case the German march 
into Austria should be made, to 
withdraw “without sensible 
resistance.” Herr von Schusehnigg 
here corrected himself and said 
“without resistance”. . . 

NAZIS IN COMMAND 
At 8.15 Dr. von Seyss-Inquart. in 
a voice which he could with 
difficulty control, spoke on the 
wireless and announced that lhe 
German Army was on its way to 
Vienna. He said that he was still in 
office as Minister of the Interior 
and of Security, and felt himself 
responsible for law and order in 
Austria. 

At 10 o'clock the Austrian 
Government had entirely ceased to 
function. The Nazi flag was flying 
over the historic Chancery in the 
Ballhausplatz where Metternich 
spun his tangled webs and where 
the Vienna Congress met. The 
Austrian Government Press De- 
partment was bereft of all officials 
and had been occupied by police 
wearing swastika arm -bands. All 
the police, who three hours before 
were still obeying the orders of the 
last Government, were now wear- 
ing swastika arm-bands or giving 
the Hitler salute. 

HERR HESS IN VIENNA 
At 10.45 p.m. Herr Hess, Herr 
Hitler's deputy, was reported to 
have arrived in Vienna. By 1 1 pan. 
the appearance of large numbers of 
Storm troops. Hitler Youth, and 
Hitler Girl detachments, uni- 
formed and marching well togeth- 
er. had given an air of order to the 
scene. 

By midnight— barely five hours 
after the time-limit attached to the 
final German demand had expired# 
the massing of troops on the 
frontier, and Herr von 
Schuschnigg’s submission to 
force— Vienna and all Austria had 
already begun to settle down to 
being a National -Socialist city and 
a National-Socialist State. . .

Two private collections of Dotcfe

mahogany and rosewood stand 
made to bold portfolios of prints. 

It is designed by Tbeodoor 
Nienwenhms with elaborate 
openwork panels of flowers and 
foliage. It dates from around

most expensive modern far-

OBITUARY 


RAY MILL AND 
Suave Hollywood leading man 


Ray Mffland, the film actor, 
died tn hospital in Torrance, 
California, on March 10. He 
was 78 and had been suffering 
foam cancer. He appeared in 
some 120 pictures and won an 
Oscar for his portrayal of the 
tormented alcoholic in The 
Lost Weekend. 

He first made his name in 
the 1930s as a suave and 
polished leading man of come- 
dy and light drama and this 
remainedhis forte, with occa- 
sional excursions into more 
challenging material. During 
the 19605 he turned with some 
success to low budget horror 
films and later played Ryan 
O’Neal's father in the enor- 
mously successful Love Stdry. 

He was born Reginald 
Tru sco tt- Jones in Neath, 
South Wales, on January 3 



Ray MUbnd in The Lost 
Weekend 

appearing as Bulldog Drum- 
mond in Bulldog r Drummond 


1908, the son a steel mill Escapes and making occasion- 
superintendent He was edu- al excursions into costume 
cated at King s College, Loo- drama in such films as Beau 
don, and served in the. Gesie. 


Household Cavalry before try- 
ing his hand in showbusiness 
as a chorus boy and dancer. 

After a few years of no great 
distinction on the London 
stage, be went to America in 
1931, and was spotted by an 
MGM talent scout His first 
two films were therefore made 
in Hollywood, Payment De- 
ferred and This is the Life, 
Wore he returned to this 
country for Orders is Orders 
(1933). 

However his English accent 
and smart way with a witty 
line had already tnmfr* him in 
steady demand in Hollywood, 
where he settled and where 
most of his subsequent films 
were made. 

During the 1930s he played 
mainly in light comedies and 
musicals such as We're Not 
Dressing, Three Smart Girls 
and Easy Living, as well as 


In 1939 he came to Britain 
to make French Without 
Tears, form the hit stage 
comedy by Terence Rattigan. 

During the Second World 
War he continued to appear in 
comedies, interspersed with 
dramas and musicals. Among 
his more notable pictures 
during this period were Cecil 
B. de Mine's adventure spec- 
tacle, Reap the Wild Wind, 
The Major and the Mirror , a 
sophisticated comedy with 
Ginger Rogers; and The Min- 
istry of Fear. directed from the 
Graham Greene novel by 
Fritz Lang. 

The Major and the Minor 
had been directed by Billy 
Wilder, who decided to cast 
Miiland, completely against 
type, in The Lost Weekend. 
His performance as the alco- 
holic hero, both harrowing 
and sympathetic, was an unex- 


pected triumph and remained 
his finest screen work. After it 
the rest of his career was 
something of an anti-climax, 
though he continued wilhia 
his limited range to enliven a 
wide variety of pictures. 

In the late 1940s and early 
1950s he appeared in a period *. 
drama, Kitty, an excellent i 
thriller, The’ Big Clock, with i 
Charles Laughton; Something X 
to Live For. an another study ^ 
in alcoholism; and a curious 
experiment in hear wordless 
film making; The Thief 

But easily the most success- 
ful of his 1950s roles was as 
the husband who plots the 
death of his wife played by 
Grace Kelly in Dial M For 
Murder, which was directed 
by Alfred Hitchcock and drew 
from MiUand a performance 
that combined his usual 
charm with an undercurrent 
ofevfl. 

In 1955 Miiland turned 
director for the first time with 
A Man Alone, a Western, and 
he went on to direct several 
more pictures, of which the^. 
most notable was the science- 
fiction horror story. Panic in 
Year Zero. By this time (1963) 
he was becoming a horror 
specialist, appearing in The 
Premature Burial and The 
Man with X-Ray Eyes. 

In Love Story (1970) he 
startled some of his followers 
by appearing almost com- 
pletely bald - and disclosed 
that he had been wearing a 
toupee on screen for the 
previous 20 years. During the 
1970s, amid much work for 
television, he played support- 
ing parts in Aces High and The 
Last Tycoon and repeated his 
earlier role in a sequel to Love 
Story called Oliver ‘s Story. * 

He is survived by his wife, 
whom be married in 1932. 
They had a son and a daugh- 
ter. 


AIR VICE-MARSHAL R. N. BATESON 


Air Vice-Marshal R. N. 
Bateson, CB, DSO. DFC, who 
led the celebrated wartime 
Mosquito raids on the Gesta- 
po headquarters at The 
Hague, Copenhagen and 
Odense, died on March 6 at 
the age of 73. 

The Hague raid, was one of 
the war's great precision at- 
tacks and resulted in the total 
destruction . of the building 
housing the Gestapo HQ and 
along with it, documents valu- 
able to the Germans but 
highly incriminating of the 
Dutch underground move- 
ment 

Robert Norman Bateson 
was bora on June 10, 1912, 
and educated at Watford 
Grammar SchooL He joined 
the RAF in 1936 and was in 
the Middle Last ax the out- 
break of war. He served with 
Blenheim squadrons there and 
was awarded the DFC for his 
brilliant leadership, in 1940. 

After a spell on air staff 
duties in Egypt he then tot* 
command of 211 Squadron, 
also flying Blenheims. This 
was destined for Singapore but 


when the island fell to the 
Japanese ft operated out of 
Sumatra ineearf until this, 
loo, was overrun. Baieseon 
escaped via Australia and took 
over 1 1 Squadron in Ceylon. 

In 1943 he was given com- 
mand of 613 Squadron and 
with its Mosquitoes embarked 
on a series of precision raids 
which were part of the Second 
Tactical Air Force’s offensive 
against German targets in still- 
occupied territory. 

The most famous - and 
effective - of these was un- 
doubtedly the bombing of the 
Gestapo's Hague HQ on April 
II j 1944. The operational 
requirement was for the de- 
struction of a single house, 
without harming surrounding 
dwellings, an objective which 
was virtually achieved by the 
first bombing ran, that of 
Bateson Mosquito, which led 
the six aircraft deployed in the 
raid. 

Attacking from below the 
height of the five storey build- 
ing, at about 50 feet, Bateson's 
Mosquito put two bombs 
“bang through the front door’* 


GWYNDAF 


The Rev Evan Gwyndaf 
Evans, known throughout 
Wales by his bardic name of 
Gwyndaf and one of the most 
influential figures in the Royal 
National Eisteddfod ofWales 
died orr March 10 at Llandud- 
no, aged 73. 

A tanner’s son, be was bora 
in Llanfacfareth, Merioneth, 
and was educated at the 
University College of Wales, 
Aberystwyth, and the Presby- 
terian College, Carmarthen. In 
1938 he boame minister of 
Tabernacle Congregational 
Church, Llanelli, and after 20 
years was appointed Head of 
Religious Studies at Brynrefail 
High School near Caernarfon. 

As a young man he became 
prominent in the Welsh art of 
penillion ringing (with the 
harp) in which he matured as 
one of the Ieadhte exponents 
and an acknowledged expert 

In 1935 at 22 years of age he 
had become the youngest 
person ever to gain the Chair 
at the National Eisteddfod, 
held that year in Caernarfon, 
being the first to win with a 
poem of vers fibre in 
Cynghanedd (the strict Welsh 
metre), with the renowned 


Some 30 years later he was 


ited Archdruid of the 
of Bards of the 
National Eisteddfod for the 
usual period of three years and 
became one of the best known 
archdruids of tins century. In 
1970 he succeeded the emi- 
nent Cynan (Sir Albert Evans- 
Jones) as Recorder of the 
Gorsedd, a position be held 
for ten years. 

As Archdruid and Recorder 
he made full use of his 
organizing talents for the con- 
siderable benefit of the Na- 
tional Eisteddfod while his 
outspokenness' on all matters 
concerning the Welsh lan- 
guage and Welsh culture be- 
came a by-word in Wales. 

His warm personality and 
firm views will be sorely 
missed as he still had so much 
more to contribute to the 
cultural scene in Wales. 
Gwyndaf leaves a widow and 
five children. 


Howard Greenfield, the 
songwriter who co-wrote the 
Connie Francis hit, "Where 
The Boys Are” and the 1975 
Grammy-award winner 
“Love Will Keep Us 
Together” died in Los Ange- 
les on March 4. 


as he described it at the time; 
two others went through a 
window. The rest of the raid 
followed up with HE and 
incendiaries and by the time 
the fifth and sixth aircraft 
attacked, the building had 
been levelled. Their bombs 
however strode a barracks 
behind the HQ. 

The success of this raid 
earned Bateson a Bar to the 
DSO he had won in the 
previous year. 

A year later Bateson, as CO m. 
of no 140 Wing - . three w 
Mosquito squadrons - led 
attacks on Gestapo HQs in 
Denmark, at Copenhagen and 
Odense, and he flew many 
sorties against V-weapon sites. 

Among his postwar ap- 
pointments were command of 
the Duxfotd fighter station, of 
battle of Britain memory, and 
three years, 1959-61, "as an 
Assistant chief of Aiir Staff. 
From 1961 to 1962 he com- 
manded 12 Group, Fighter 
Command, and he was Senior 
Air Staff Officer, Fighter Com- 
mand from 1963 to 1967. He 
was ADC to the Queen. 1958-

B.S.S. writes: 

Harry Saigeant, who died 
on February 28. was one of the 
post-war generation of county 
archivists who established the 
network of local record offices 
in England. 

His early training in the 
manuscripts department of 
Birmingham Reference Li- 
brary as well as war service 
with the Royal Corps of 
Signals, instilled in him a 
sense of orderliness which was 
to remain for the rest of his 
professional career. g. 

Following his appointment 
as county archivist of Worces- 
tershire in 1947 - a post he 
held until his retirement in 
1976 - he immediately set 
about safeguarding and hous-

owned historical manuscripts 
with both efficiency and sensi- 
tivity.

When antiquarian study be-

he was exceptional in his 
interest in technical matters, 
concern for modern records

A few days ago the Soviet

close-up photographs of 
Halley's Comet from a dis- 
tance of some 6,000 miles. 
This first view of the heart of a 
comet (the andens as it is 
called) showed that it mea- 
sared some 2 to 2^5 miles 
across, five to ten times small- 
er than most astronomers were 
expecting to find. 

Much larger sizes were

ganic comets that might be 
observed. One such prediction 
was that Halley's Comet 
should, if it were made of 
organic material, be some two 


miles in diameter, which corre- 
sponds exactly and remark- 
ably with the data obtained 
from Vega 1. 

In a paper (Cardiff Astro- 
physics Preprint, No.121) 
published on March 1 1986 
Hoyle and Wickramasinghe

result from the rounding up of 
longer-period comets fry the

planets Jiqnter and Saturn,

many astronomers that there 
sbonld be a hundred times 
more comets than are actually 
observed. 

Hoyle and Wickramasingbe 
say that organic comets, 
through evaporation at their 
surfaces, produce tree-like for- 
mations of organic particles. 


Such surfaces have been 
shown to be so extremely non-

Comets that are actually 
observed like Halley’s Comet 
most have undergone some 
process whereby their dusty 
smfaces are cleaned up period- 
ically so as tt become suffi- 
ciently smooth and reflecting 
to be seen. That can only 
happen, it is argued, if the 
comet's nucleus is m two or 
more pieces. 

Those indtriduai pieces can 
have geutie jostiiag encoearters 
with each other leading to the 
production of dean patches of 
surface that can reflect sun- 
light. The startling prediction 
offered $s that the European 
satellite Giotto which comes to 
within 500 kflometres of the 
comet's nucleus tomorrow 
should reveal this

THE ARTS 


^Itoare reviews last night’s television 
ana David Robinson introduces a major new series 
on the British film starting on Thames tonight 


Elusive Cinema at war 



la a compelling edition — 
compelling for rewns- that 
were probably not intended - 
Arena (BBC2) focused on two 
yonBg Glaswegian palmers, 
Stephen Campbell, who now 
lives in America, and Adrian 
Wisniewski. Three years out 
of the same art school and with 

paintings in the Tate and the 
Metropolitan Mnseam in New 
York, they have, according to 
one critic, “made Glasgow a 
byword for British art in 
Europe” 

Arena approached these for- 
mer classmates and their 
present reputations in tndt-' 
TJ tioaally hip form, expecting a 
few hone Glaswegian i wHk . 
andsome links between then 
that did not. exist (which, 
meant that Campbell, with his 
New York setting, emerged 
unfairly with more ernph-

asked to comment on each 
other. 

In fact, fa its attempt to 
extract comment, the pro- 
gramme whiffed of bafflement. 
William . Lieberman got 
through a whole packet of 
rigarmtes in trying to ftt phin 
why he had bought a Campbell 
for the Metropolitan Masenm. 
The analysis of two plastic 
female art-dealers was on the 
level of “it looks pretty good 1 *. 
Which left the artists, be- 
mused, unaffected, cheeky. 
“This is such 7 a great 
painting”, gushed an Ameri- 
can girl. “Isn’t it, yea”, agreed 
Campbell, looking a trifle like 
Billy Connolly. 

His jolty explanations of his 
art seemed at odds not only 
with its tone and content hot 
also the film's producers. “I 
don't have any ideas” he said. 
“Yon don't know how it 
happens.” What, then, was foe 
right word to describe it? 
“Dramatic impact?” be an- 
swered. “I don’t know.” - - 


Havii£ already paid tribute to the 
American cinema in Hollywood and 
The Unknown Chaplin, not to speak 
of the Thames Sflents 
Thames Television’s formidable 
film scholars, Kevin Brownlow and 
David Gifl, were invited to do their 
hit for British films, in British Film 
. Year. Their answer was to invite 
three prominent British directors — 
Lindsay Anderson, Alan Parker and 
Richard Attenborough — «irh to 
inake a film essay on his personal 
view of the' British cinema. 

The formula sounded chancy: in 
the outcome the two films already 
com pleted (Attenborough’s, due for 
transmission in a fortnight, f have 
not yet seen) are .'illuminating in 
their contrasts and complements. 
Each is complete in itself and' 
characteristic of its author. Taken 
together they vividly express the 
schismatic character of the British 
cinema. There is not one British 
cinema, but several, and each feels 
.itself in a stale of war with the rest. 
British EHm Year found — and left 
— a cinema in a debilitating state of 
civil conflict 

Anderson’s cool and methodical 
lecture, entitled Free Cinema, sets 
out to refute David Puttnam's . 
contentions assertion that “Rim for 
good and ill is an American 
medium . . . There has never been 
an indigenous film industry in the 
way that there has been an Italian, 
French or American film indus- 
try _ . There have, insists Ander- 
son, been several native tradftrons; 
and he traces the evolution of one, 
the humanist-realist, tradition, 
which, though currently at the very * 
nadir of fashion, represents one of 
foe most coherent and durable 
schools our cinema has produced. 

Anderson, as a leader of the Ree 
Cinema movement, thirty years, 
ago. correctly identifies tins as 
cnidaL He sees its inspiration in 
Humphrey Jennings (with a magical 
extract from Jennings’s Spare Time 
of 1939 to prove it), and its 
successors in new-wave feature

Anger, Saturday Night and

Forbes and Fifties, which bred him. 
is the touchstone to which, in this 
film — A Turnip-Head’s Guide to 
foe British Cinema — as in other 
public statements, Parker constant- 
ly returns. It is not a bad foothold on 
reality -for a popular cinema and. 
after all, cinema should be popular. 

Not that Parker is consistent. 
While implicitly rejecting the hu- 
manist realists (“the n piAHip classes 
observing foe working classes”) he 
acknowledges admiration for Ken 
Loach; and his own first success. 
The Evacuees, could easily be seen 
as an offshoot. Now though he 
declares for a cinema of imagery 
and visions the directors be most 
fervently promotes in his film are

instance of this than . the 
absorbing sequence which fol- 
lowed Campbell painting from 
scratch. What began - as a 
“walking chappie” turned into 
“a tobogganer with aspira- 
tions to bring a skier”. When 
the intruding camera was re- 
moved (it had made Mm stow

Campbell produced a painting 
that was totally unrecogniz-

relevance of these films seems only 
to enlarge in retrospect Britannia 
Hospital, winch Anderson styles 
“the last Free Cinema film", origi- 
nally appeared to commercial deba^ 
de and critical onslaught A year or; 
so on, its climactic final scene, 
which also concludes Anderson’s 
new essay, appeals as a devastating 
metaphor for a divided Britain here 
and now, vindicating his advocacy 
of a cinema that is made out of 
contemporary reality: 

“No art is worth much that 
doesn't aim to change foe world. Of 
course no-artist can Be judged by his 
success or failure to change the 
world, since none of us succeeds. 
We can pnty hope to influence like- 
minded spirits or hearts by telling 
the truth.” 

For Alan Parker, however; whose 


Ridley Scott ( Alien and 
Roland Jofffe (The Killing Fields) 
and Hugh Hudson (whose Chariots 
of Fire and Revolution feature 
Jaige). 

The films Parker approve thus 
tend to represent foe big-budget. 
American-dominated commercial 
cinema. The success ethic is a major 
source of friction in foe internecine 
war of the British film. Anderson 
quotes David Puttnam's statement 
that one aim of British Film Year 
was to assure film-makers that 
commercial success is not vulgar, 
that they should not fed embar- 
. jassed to make successful, accessi- 
ble films. 

This is in principle incontrovert- 
ible; and the army of Orears and foe 
commercial success earned by 
Chariots of Fire and Gandhi con- 
tributed largely to a revival of 
British cinema in the Eighties, by 
boosting morale and encouraging 
investment. The danger in this kind 
of success and the success ethic is 
when the pursuit of success be- 
comes an end in so *h«i film- 
makers grow too jealous of it, and 
see it as the only criterion. 



The protagonists giving tbeir 
personal views of the British 
cinema: Alan Parker (above) 
- here playing his own tune in 
the film — declaring, 
inconsistently, for an art of 
imagery and visions; Lindsay 
Anderson (left), coolly and 
methodically pleading for the 
humanist-realist tradition; 
and Richard Attenborough, 
cutting it fine 







When success is the only test. 


there is no time or place for foe 
small film, the private film, foe 
brave fell ore, foe kind of pioneering 
efforts which have always pushed 
art forward, even if they have not 
attracted the crowd. The most 
dispiriting moment in Alan Parker’s 
essay is when David Puttnam. from 
foe peak of success, derides a 
director who has made most of his 
exploratory films on budgets of a 
few thousand pounds: “Happily, the 
Oscar is nothing that Derek Jarman 
will ever have to worry about”. 


It is odd and perhaps flattering 
that Jarman, whom one might have 
thought constituted no threat to foe 
commercial cinema, appears to be 
no less anathema to Parker than he 
is to Mrs Whitehouse. Parker 
mischievously overlays a passage 
from Jarman’s Sebastiane with 
Danny Kaye singing “The King was 
in the altogether”; and when he 
cites, apparently for approval, the 
visual audacity of Ken Russell's The 


Devils, he neglects to mention that 
Jarman designed it 

Parker, who generally works in 
Hollywood, implicitly shares David 
Puttnam’s view of American depen- 
dency: “If I had to rely on British 
support I would be out sweeping 
roads”. He acknowledges no place 
for those native films which are 
made not on American-scale bud- 
gets but at costs that relate to the 
economy of European production. 

In this respect, foe film produc- 
tion programme of Channel 4 has 
been enormously important, both 
in establishing foe viability of 
moderate-budget films and in pro- 
viding a continuity of production 
which has enabled many new 
directors to enter features. This cuts 
no ice with Pirker. He has one of 
the comical turnip-heads who pro- 
vide a chorus to his film, in foe 
character of a cinema usherette, 
declare “I told the manager, if we 
show any more of those Channel 4 
films, we’d better forget the choc- 
ices and serve black coffee to keep 
foe poor buggers awake”. 

Even in foe time since he finished 
his film, history has overtaken him. 


Channel 4's Letter to Brezhnev and 
My Beautiful Laundreite . costing 
less than a million pounds between 
them, have dramatically outclassed 
the box-ofiice performance of Revo- 
lution, which is a case of what 
happens when you put all your eggs 
in one basket and drop foe lot. 

Part of Parker’s distaste for the 
small-budget film arises from antip- 
athy to anything he suspects of 
“intellectual ism”. This is where 
Islington is wielded like a sledge- 
hammer. He detests the British 
Film Institute, for its promotion of 
a school of irrelevant and incompre- 
hensible pseudo-academic criti- 
cism, less reasonably for the work of 
its Production Department He 
discreditably doctors an interview 
given in good faith, in order to 
ridicule the institute's present direc- 
tor. derides the Production Depart- 
ment by quoting a Peter Greenaway 
film out of context; but entirely 
neglects to mention that the direc- 
tors who have owed their first film 
opportunities to the Department 
include Ken Russell. Tony Richard- 
son, Karel Reisz and Bill Douglas. 

A Turnip-Head's Guide to the 


British Cinema is in this respect a 
true .Alan Parker film: a potentially 
marvellous instinct as a film-maker 
is forever undercut by irrational 
prejudices and chips on the shoul- 
der. His film has wonderful mo- 
ments. like the intercutting of 
Chariots of Fire with actuality 
scenes of Britain after the Falklands. 
At other points it runs off the rails 
into settling personal scores. 

His resentments of the BFI must 
be as uninteresting as incomprehen- 
sible to television audiences, and 
there is no pattern to his diatribe 
against film critics. It is predictable 
that the proponents of the success 
ethic should see malevolence in any 
criticism that is less than favour- 
able. Forgetting what their films 
Bugsy Malone and Chariots of Fire 
owed to the critics, Messrs Parker. 
Puttnam and Hudson Jet fly. Parker 
characterizes critics as eunuchs and 
speaks of their “constipated eru- 
dition”. Puttnam will not grace 
them with the name — “reviewers, 
not critics” — and assures us that 
reviewers will never influence his 
work. It all sounds a good deal like 
protesting 100 much. — D.R.

Blood, Sweat and 
Tears 

Tricycle 


In the banning (1984 to be 
v precise) was Up 'n' Under, the 
Hull Truck Company’s award- 
winning comedy concerning 
foe improbable exploits of a 

pub Rugby League team. Then 

came Bouncers, Shakers and 
Up 7t‘ Under II. Next August 
in Edinburgh they win give 
Cramp, which would appear 
to be about body-building. 
Meanwhile, in between its 
premiere in Hull and its 
projected national tour, here is 
foe London opening of Blood,- 
Sweat and Tears. 

This time around foe play- 
wright and . director John 
v Godber has set his predictable 
7 clutch of sporting amateurs in 
a scruffy judo dub in Hull, 
where a couple of Mufti good- 
humoured but scarcely winy 
black -belts (Steven Brough 
and Michael Callaghan) and 
an uptight W PC green-belt 
(Liza Sadovy) are startled by 
foe irruption, of two frolic- 
tome short-order waitresses 
(Gillian Tompkins and Jane 
Gifford) who have come to 
leant foe noble art of self- 
defence. 

The former, a sex-mad hoy- 
den who on second thoughts 
would rather encourage than 
repel male advances, quits at 
the first hurdle; foe latter, 
whose character is pretty hard 
to differentiate with any de- 
gree’ of confidence, sticks to 
her tack and in foe space of 
less than a year finds herself 
pitted against the WPC in a 
grudge-match as they both go 
for tbeir Mack belts on the 
ame night 

There kb no prizes for 
guesting whether Miss Clif- 
foul triumphs. Whether Mr 
“ Godber’s play will win any 
. prizes in the coming months is 
s question .foal admits of 
considerably more doubt 1 
never thought the original Up 
Under anything like as 
funny as it was wuddy cracked 
up to be, but it was at least well 
conceived and .resourcefully 


produced, with the plywood 
characterization and sit-corn 
dialogue lending a consistent- 
ly mock-heroic effect 

All these virtues have now 

gone by foe board This piece's 
dialogue is woefully stale, foe 
curtain-lines seem to be in- 
tended seriously, and foe ex- 
positions! addresses to the 
house are an embarrassment, 
while its attempts to dredge up 
contemporary relevance to 
tabloid rape-mania come to 
nothing. 

At one point we witness foe 
WPC delivering a pep-talk to a 
conceptual audience of alar- 
med housewives at the start of 
a self-defence course: this may 
or may not be scrupulously 
accurate, but it is next to 
impossible to discover what 
dramatic function the speech 
is intended to perform. Dra- 
ma, indeed, comes a very poor 
second to tire noisy bouts of 
grappling which punctuate foe 
story. It win be enriousdo see 
whether there are enough judo 
fans in the country to support 
this production.

Half A dozen years ago I w» 
pr ofess ionally associated with 
no fewer than three of foe 
people concerned in mounting 
this production. 1 mention it 
because it is best to be ahead 
of Private Eye in these mai- 
lers. Now for the play. 

Charlie is a secretary, 
Mark’s name is never men- 
tioned, Manbew is on foe 
srage all foe time — as is 
everyone rise — but his role is 
little more than that of listener 
and apnbuder. The leading 
characters are Luke and (sur- 
prisingly) John, and foe es- 
sence of the play is a mutually 
supportive double act involv- 
ing these two, a practised 
scriptwriter and a successful 
film director. 

. They have gathered togeth- 


er in what must be the crow’s- 
nest of a hundred-storey hotel 
looking down mi foe City of 
London. The set (by Andrew 
Feest and Susan Platt) dis- 
guises foe relatively tight con- 
fines of this stage by tacking it 
with a wide window-scape of 
somewhere that looks Kite, a 
smoggy day in L.A Only the 
surprising presence of foe roof 
of St Raul's down there among 
the Lego Mocks tells us we are 
somewhere in foe near future. 


On the other hand, we 
might be on Mount Patinos a 
couple of thousand years ago. 
At least we are in an upper 
room, and Robert Gillespie, 
director as well as author, adds 
to the hints in his title with a 
programme-note concerning 
Gospel-makers. 


So, are we to take this play 
as something distinctly other 
than what it seems to be? — 
not just a splendidly observed, 
fraught and lunatic script- 
conference bat a parable of 
bow u market a religion? I 
dare say we are, because 
something pushes foe play 
along to 1 odd course, like an 
underground river coming up 
into view at unexpected points 


hard to relate to surface 

features. 

Better to rely on the comic 
writing and performances. 
The mawkish film-scripi of 
love and devotion between 
American male and Japanese 
maid goes through a ludicrous 
sequence of transformation, 
echoing every such tale in the 
history of cinema. Yet it 

r emains cnn vi nring fy original, 

right to foe villain's final exit, 
smothered beneath an ava- 
lanche of rice. 

Peter Dennis’s Luke is a 
writer sparking in all direc- 
tions, self-dramatizing an odd 
mixture of foe honourable and 
the fake; the comic set-pieces 
are excellently done but no 
less so are foe darting glances 
and foe moments of revene. 
Tony Doyle gives the alarm- 
ing hero-villain foe comedy of 
a man who must always be 
taken seriously, even when 
dreaming of death by nee 
pudding.

Not so much a concert, this;

tion of a way of life. The long 


amateur tradition in Britain o 
massed choral singing should 
never be derided This coun- 
try produced great choirs in 
dark Victorian days when we 
were incapable of nurturing 
one good composer, conduc- 
tor or orchestra; and we have 
gone on producing them. The

150 years old this season, has 
the grandest history of them

versary performance of Messi-

ation in top form. • 

They are usually revered for 
the power and warmth of their 
forte singing, but what particu- 
larly impressed here was the 
cohesion and clarity foe 200-

lo Brian Kay's diligent work as 
chorus-master. These singers 
do know Messiah fairly well, 
of course, but they tore

mittently shone through the 
bluster. 

This choral society, the

these are not names in the

was not foe occasion to com- 
plain about discrepancies in

ment Nor is there much point 
in serious discussion of 
Hughes’s choice of tempi for 
the choruses. However. I did 
momentarily wonder why

considered thrifty people) 
hired all those flutes, clarinets 
and trombones lo play notes 
which Handel never wrote.

Rodrigo Festival 

Elizabeth Hall 


Monday's third Rodngo Festi- 
val concert was a biographical 
and topographical scrapbook. 
Its pages turned aimlessly and 
effortlessly, showing first, and 
best one of the composer's 
most delightful and surprising 
pieces, foe M us tea para un 
jardtn, an orchestral suite of 
four berceuses with prelude 
and posliude, heard for the 
first lime m this country. 

Their ccm positions 
spanned some 34 years of 
Rcdngo’s life, and revealed 
much in doing so. The almost 
minimalist baikus of foe pre- 
lude and first berceuse, which 
pitted symmetrical repetition 
and sustained string chords 


Two choral works nicely 
balanced the programme. The

creaky performances by 16

Theatre in

Entertaining 
Mr SSoaoe 
Citizens’, Glasgow 


If there is one theme that has 
kept reappearing in recent 
productions at foe Citizens' it 
has been foe destructive futili- 
ty of possessive, misdirected 
passion. It seems fitting then 
that they should finish the 
season with this finely-con- 
trolled. understated produc- 
tion that 3 Mows what is really 
unpleasant in Joe Orion's 
vision to emerge unimpeded 
by what has ceased superfi- 
cially, to be shocking. 

There is a sly timeliness to it 
too — with flying ducks and 
Sixties nostalgia in fashion. 
Orton's satire touches on a 
transient new target. From 
Kenny Miller's studiously 
bad-tasle, cluttered Sixties set 
upwards. Giles HavergaJ's 
production is self-consciously 
dated, playing shrewedly on 
the layers of irony this adds to 
those already in Orion's origi- 
nal. 

Nowhere is this so well 
achieved as in Kaih. The 
middie-aged landlady “adop- 
ting” her baby-laced lodger 
Mr Sloane into her sexual 
fantasies is played by Fidelis 
Morgan as an almost Edna 
Everage-esque parody of a 
parody. Glisten mg with soft, 
repellent niceness. she be- 
comes preposterous as a char- 
acter though every sentence is 
credible. It is a performance 
playing into the uncompro- 
mising cruelty of Orton's com- 
edy, gradually developing the 
nature of her ridiculousness as 
foe gulf between the niceness 
of her manners and the de- 
pravity of her behaviour be- 
comes more grotesque. 

She is matched move for 
move by Robin Sneller’s Mr 
Sloane, who slides chameleon- 
like across the twists of the 
plot, calculating profit. For foe 
whole of foe first act he plays 
dumb, then suddenly switches 
from prey to predator (where 
he is perhaps not unpleasant 
enough) as foe production in 
general changes tack and the 
power of sexual blackmail 
appears to be his. 

The wav has been set out to 
a nicety for Orton's manipula- 
tion of morality. Sloane's 
vicious murder of Kemp (Har- 
ry Gibson) looks almost mod 
besides Kalb's persistent, cal- 
lous invality and Ed's resilient 
prejudices - Ed played by 
Patrick Hannaway with the 
hysterical self-righteousness of 
sexual frustrations. The audi- 
ence is caught laughing with- 
out pity at these morally 
impoverished cnaraciens. 

The precision of Orton's 
plot and his economic control 
of brutally comic dialogue 
ccme across with great clarity 
in this smooth, ughtly-inle- 
grated production. Playing on 
foe limits of Orton's social 
satire of his time does nothing 
to lessen foe cleverness of his 


writing.

OUR EARNINGS ARE 
NOSMALLBEER. 


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

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

We have successfully launched new products 
both at home and abroad. 

Alongside our core drinks business we have 
expanded in retailing and health care, both 
growth sectors linked by strong brand names 
with good consumer franchises. 


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

During that period our shareholders have 
reaped the benefit. 

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

Proof indeed that Guinness should be good 
for Distillers.

quashed rising City specufo- 
lion that it was about to 
launch a 0,000 million phis 
takeover bid for Woofworth - 
linking the rumours with the 
retiring Woofworth chairman 
John Beckett. 

A high placed source in! 
Dixons suggested that the 
source of the rumour was Mr 
who had told some 
stockbrokers that if a bid was 
made for Wootwortb it could 
come from the electrical 
chain. 

Last night Mr Beckett said 
:**• Oh, really! They flatter 
themselves. I suppose it is 
passible that Dixon's name 
may have come up in a 
conversation from time to 
tune but I certainly haven't 
singled them out." 

Commenting on the sharp 
rise in its share price, Mr 
Beckett suggested that a sharp 
movement was not unusual in 
the period leading up to the 
announcement of its results. 
Wool worth is due to produce 
its year end figures on March 
26. 

■ But Mr Beckett said Wool- 
worth had not received any 
bid approaches.

manufacturer yesterday reject-

worth £65.9 milium from 
McKechnie Brothers, the West

The board of Newman 
Tanks said the offer was "still

McKedune had recognized the 


need to provide a cash alterna- 
tive in view of the "minimal 
industrial logic of the bid and 
the questionable value of 
McKechnie shares"

this Dutch company, which is 
part of Robeco, the fund

However, there is specula- 
tion that it may raise it by the 
second closing date, to nearer 
630p, but the company is 
adamant that it will not go to

Fraud costs firms £lbn a year

Commercial fraud is costing

Thia emerged yesterday af- 
ter a call for tougher sanctions 

came in the first detafled study 

of commercial fraud, spon- 
sored by the Home Office, the 
Fhfice Foundation and Arthur 
Young, the int ern a t i ona l ac- 
countants. 

The stady we carried ort by 
Dr Michael Leri of the depart- 
antrfswM trtwidrt rt 

^ UnjrenatyQB^e , Cardiff, 
who fe a specialist m cxunmol- 
mv snd Mr James Morgan, a 
senior partner at Arthur 
Young and its director of

345p +2Cp 
34tp +58p 
585p+70p 


Abnost 40 per cent of com- 
panies surveyed had reported 

»t least one frond costing more 

than £50,009 and 5 cert 

reported nwreffianlOfrawb. 
Commercial fiand fit 
cost three times as mnehasan 

Yet many frauds remain 
iioy.iiirfif or go anreprat- 


ed. Some seahw exe c u ti ves 
intErriewedadntitted that they 
and other companies' did not 
report some bands becanse of 
embanrassment while pomting 
ort that if everybody had to 
report they themselves would 
be prepared to do so. 

R oads inv ol vin g cheques or 
credit cards form the largest 
single category of commercial 
crime at 238 per cent of 
recorded frauds. The second 
largest category at 19 per cent 
are frauds involving embezzle- 
ment or expenses. 

Other areas frequently sus- 
ceptible to fraudidert activity 
indude easterner accounts and 
the receiving of goods with 
false invoking the commonest 
problem, sometimes used m 
collusion with suppliers. 

There are «1 so insurance 
frauds where psesnoBB me 
secured for non-existent cover 
and investment frauds. 

Nearly a half of those 
surveyed were concerned 
about computer trend but few 
reported actual cases. Only 
two detailed a recent computer 
fraud at theft companies. 


Dr Levi said: "There are a 
few Mg frauds of this kind 
which have never been report- 
ed but there is no dear 
evidence about the Inc i d ence of 
computer fraud. Probably it 
has got a little ort of propor- 
tion: people have rather gone 
overboard about computers. 
But dearly it is potentially a 
problem area." 

Increased use of computers 
in business and the develop- 
ment of the cashless society 
were factors in senior execu- 
tives bettering that the prob- 
lem of fraud was both serious 
and becoming increasingly ha- 
portant, said Mr Morgan- One 
incident reported was iff an 
employee who, on leaving an 
(w piwwtiiM, bad takes a 
computer disc listing custom- 
ers and terms of beriness and 
was only frustrated from get- 
ting the disc contente copied 
when an outside software 
house checked with the com- 
pany involved. 

The police traditionally ac- 
corded a low priority to dealing 
with fraud, the survey pointed 
out, with oaly about 5 per cent 


of CID manpower allocated to 
such investigations. Compa- 
nies wanted tougher po firing 
of fraud. The report added: 
“little confidence was ex- 
pressed in the competence id 
the Department of Trade to 
deal with cases of sasperted 
fraud, companies complaining 
of the department's lack of 
resources and negative 
attitude. " 

But there are now moves to 
strengthen the Department of 
Trade and Industry by 190 
additional staff dealing with 
the problem, ft was pointed 
out. 

But the survey found a 
general agreement that pre- 
vention and control of com- 
mercial fraud rested with 
managements rather than 
Government. In reported 
frauds none was detected by 
external auditors but some 
companies felt auditors could 
play a more active role. Two 
thirds of those in the survey 
thought auditors should be 
obliged legally to report any 
tax and neo-tax frauds detect- 
ed.

Hanson’s handicaps 
in Imperial stakes 




Laird at Birkenhead and yesterday morning, a fleet of any shortfaD will be underwritten buys 500 or more wiD be given a 
m ade a loss of £5L2 minion 12 laries and40 men dist ribu ted by the institutions b«+mg foe further 150 shares free. There arc 
Turnover for this year will be the prospectus to the 12,000 buyout — Lloyds Merchant special loan schemes to assist 
£259.9 anHiofa for Vickers and Barrow employees. The 1300 Bank. Pearl Assurance, Eagle purchase. 


The bidding by Hanson Trust and 
United Biscuits for Imperial Group 
may still have another seven weeks to 
run, but the inevitable tedium of 
repetitive claims and counter claims 
and the diversion of expensive 
management time are outweighed by 
the value of the prize. 

Imperial offers Sir Hector Laing 
the chance of fulfilling his United 
Biscuits* dream: for Lord Hanson 
and Sir Gordon White it offers scope 
on a scale greater than that of any 
other British company for the finan- 
cial management skills in which they 
are acknowledged masters. Should 
Hanson Trust not succeed, its future 
bid targets are more likely to be in the 
United States. 

The first closing date for the 
revised Hanson offer is Friday. Last 
night, with Hanson shares standing at 
319p, its cash and shares offer for 
Imperial was worth 319p. United 
Biscuits’ cash-and-share terms, with 
UB at 230p, were worth a whisper 
more: 327p. At present rates, the 
outcome is unlikely to be determined 
by money alone. 

Hanson Trust is handicapped in 
three ways. The climate of opinion is 
now perceptibly shifting against 
conglomerates as the politicians 
claim to have rediscovered the 
virtues of manufacturing industry. 
Hanson, of course, is in manufac- 
turing, but the common perception is 
that it is less concerned with making 
things than in extracting the maxi- 
mum amount of money from its 
operating subsidiaries. In most other 
industrial countries, no one would 
argue that there was a serious 
distinction between the two: profit- 
able industry is normally successful 
industry. 

Secondly, there is a feeling that the 
Hanson-White formula of continu- 
ous acquisitions cannot go on 
delivering the goods. Even those who 
acknowledge the outstanding perfor- 
mance of Hanson shares, based on a 
strongly rising curve of earnings, 
confess to incipient doubts about the 
future. 

Thirdly, Hanson Trust has so far 
lost the public debate. Although the 
advertising campaign waged by Im- 
perial and UB is often open to serious 
■criticisms, it undoubtedly has had 
some effect, not least on confidence 
within Hanson Trust. The swing 
factor in the bid for Imperial is the 30 
per cent private shareholding. 

Normally, small shareholders tend 
to support their board in closely- 
contested bid situations. The early 
indications are that a higher propor- 
tion than usual are much more 
disposed to rally to the UB-Imperial 
cause than to desert to Hanson. 

Comic confusion 

Unexpected hilarity was caused at the 
critical point yesterday afternoon, 
when the money supply figures for 
banking February were due for 
release. Gearing bank lending, as 
opposed to total bank lending, was 
published, and the market immedi- 
ately warmed to the spectacle of a 


£224 million drop in demand for 
bank credit The futures rushed up by 
20 ticks — and just as rapidly rushed 
down again, when traders realized 
that they had been told substantially 
less than half the story. 

The note of comedy was spectacu- 
larly out of place during a day of 
monotone shades, with the Bank of 
England deftly manoeuvering all its 
markets towards accepting a round of 
base rate cuts. Narrow money fell; 
broad money grew by 1 per cent, 
giving an annualized growth rate over 
the past quarter of just under 7 per 
cent. Three month interbank rates 
dipped below 12 per cent for the first 
time since the New Year. Sterling 
firmed against the dollar, despite 
market expectations that rate cuts are 
on the way. The Government Broker 
pointedly stayed out of the market at 
3.30 and the cash market ended the 
day some V 2 point or more ahead. A 
one point fall in rates to 1 1 ] h per cent, 
no matter whether it is achieved in 
one straight swoop or in two separate 
stages, now looks virtually guar- 
anteed. More important it also looks 
acceptable to the market 

This fact alone must give the 
authorities cause to breathe a sigh of 
relief. 

A closer look at the numbers 
published yesterday, however, sug- 
gests at the very least that the scope 
for protracted rate cutting is very 
small indeed. The easiest way into the 
numbers, on one count is to assume 
that if rates come down, they might 
well be going up again before too 
long. And where would that leave the 
bull market in gilts? 

The official view seems to be that 
the data in banking February suffered 
from very few distortionary in- 
fluences. Ergo, 1 per cent growth in 
broad money a month, and bank 
lending growth of some £ 1 V 2 billion 
could well be the norm the market 
ought to expect during the spring. In 
other words, the 13 per cent 
annualized growth rate for the past 
half-year could well be a more 
accurate gauge of British broad 
money growth for the time being. 

It is hard to square this growth rate 
with the Chancellor’s reported desire 
to reintroduce monetary targeting 
using £M3 as a dial. It is hard to avoid 
the conclusion that he must either 
bring back £M3 with for higher 
allowable growth bands, say, 10 to 14 
per cent; or that he is prepared to tol- 
erate substantial overshoots in the 
short terra; almost immediately after 
the broad money dial returns; or that 
interest rates will go up. Since all 
three of these eventualities look 
unacceptable, the risk is that the 
Chancellor will be forced to abandon 
£M3 quite shortly after its reintroduc- 
tion, leaving the market yet again 
bereft of compasses in potentially 
hostile territory. 

The confusion surrounding the 
banking February data may well have 
been unintentional. But it serves as a 
proxy for policy confusion which the 
market detects at the heart of current 
monetary strategy.

HOW LESSER LEFT THEIR PRINT 
ON HEIDELBERG 

Heidelberg printing machines set unique standards. For innovation and 
pace-setting modernity. For quality, dependability and service support. 
Their new Administrative and Sales Headquarters in Brentford had to 
reflect this reputation and make a corporate statement in itself. 

All the functions are integrated under one roof; the showroom, with a 
linked conference facility, overlooked by a balcony servingas the main 
reception area; offices; and behind them, a warehousing, sales and 
servicing complex offering virtually total availability within 24 hours. 

Lesser had ibtal Responsibility for concept, design, building, interior 
design, space planning and decoration, achieving harmony between the 
building, its functions and machinery. 

Heidelberg has now contracted another project to us- their Northern 
Sales and Distribution Headquarters. 

The Lesser philosophy oflbtal Responsibility has evidently left its print 
on Heidelberg.

kind of results may to 
seduce any opposing groon of 
shareholders. • rr ^ 
Unlike many predatory 
companies, it docs not seem 
to be relying cm acquisitions 
to fund its growth. 

Profits before tax for last 
year unveiled yesterday show 
a jump of 77 per cent to £33.4 
million,, with first-time con- 
tributions accounting for just 
£4 million of the increase. - 
The, outstanding feature 
was the' performance of the 
poultry (Boxted chickens), 
egg and animal feed division 
coming in with its best results 
since its acquisition in 1982. 

The £)7 million profit is 
three times the 1983 level 
The stationery and office; 
equipment divison and fixrni- ‘ 
ture and plywood distribu- 
tion 'achieved even greater 
rates of growth. HiUsdown is 
sow the largest . furniture 
manulacturing business in 
Britain with turnover of £150 
million a yeqr. 

The food processing and 
distribution side finished 
with profits. II per cent 
abeacLThe problem area lies 
in -red meat, now encounter- 
ing increasing customer resis- 
tance. 

HiUsdown believes the an- 
swer lies in a complete re- 
packaging exercise taking 
products through the same, 
revolution that transformed 
the poultry business. This 
involved switching away 
from frozen binds to more 
profitable fresh produce and ; 
prepared dishes. . 

The bacon side am tinned 
to produce good results but 
overall the division's contri- 
bution slipped by £200,000 to 
£4.5 million. 

HiUsdown remains coy 
about its intentions towards 
Berisford where its holding is 
now just under 10 per cent 
Others on its shopping list 
can be gauged from its other 
quoted stakes, Bassett Foods 
(8 per cent). Brown & Jack- 
son (7.6 per cent) and Office 
and ' Electronic Machinery 
(14.9 percent). 

But attractions elsewhere - 
are unlikely , to divert ; 
HiUsdown from the possibili- 
ties of extracting more from 
its own business ^capital 
spending continues to aedri- 
erate with more than £30 
million earmarked for this / 
year on top of £te£6G million 
invested over the last three 
years. • ' 

The final dividend of 3p; 
makes a total of 4.2p for tire 
full year, a rise of 20 per dent. 
The current year is off to a 
good start and with foB-year 
contributions from compa- 
nies bought in 1985, 


lion, a rise of 17 per cent on 
sales up 9 per cent, came as 
no great surprise. UB had 
already forecast it would 
make £100 million.

No^wte in : the City is 
.claiming to be making a 
fortune out of the minions of 
pounds the Government is 
having to . pay in fees for its 
privatization progr amme , in- 
deed, Kleinwort Benson has 
claimed that the fee earned 
for . the notation of British 
Tdecom in 1984 did little 
more than cover the costs of 
the issue. ' 

A less obvious benefit of 
being associated with the 
“Safe of the Century” - is 
revealed in the 1985 results 
announced yesterday. The 
year to December 1985 
showed a 52 per cent increase 
in the pretax profit attribut- 
able to the Merchant Banking 
business, specifically the Cor- 
porate Finance division, ac- 
counting for 84 per cent of the 
total before interest charges. 

KJBL c laims to have been 
responsib!& either as sole or 
joint underwriters for more 
than a third of the equity 
capital raised in the London 
market last year, more than 
any other City firm, and this 
pre-eminence must at least be 
partly due to the company's 
highly publicised association 
with the BT flotation.

slightly ahead in dollar terms,

sterling terms. 


The cookie war is still 
being waged with a fierce 
intensity, but UB is in no 
doubt ifet it is w inning. 
Overestimation of the poten- 
tial of the soft cookie market, 
which caused the first quarter 
reverses, has now been recti- 
fied. 


Keebier produced a posi- 
tive cash flow after invest- 
ment and is still gaining 
market share. In 1985 it was 
the only American biscuit 
company to increase its share 
of toe combined cookie and 
cracker market, UB claims. 


British trading profits rose 
13.6 per cent, which included 
arise to £3.1 million from £1 
million by frozen food manu- 
fecruring and a 44 per cent 
increase at Fizzaland and

ments to recover any fosses 
on this loan. 5

made against a loan of £5

much of this will be recov-

With. the teaming curve 
now considered complete in 
restaurants and frozen food 
and the last costs (£14.3 
million after tax) of the 
closure of factories in Phila- 
delphia and Liverpool out of 
the way, UB is set to increase 
the pace of growth. Analysts 
are expecting profits of about 
£125 milli on this year, which 
gives a modest prospective 
p/e ratio of 6.4 on shares 
down 4p at 129p. 


While UB is keen to point 
out it can win cookie wars 
without help from Imperial's 
tobacco revenue, the acquisi- 
- turn of Imperial is vital to 
UB's strategy. An estimated 
combined gross cash genera- 
tion, of £500 minion to fund 
the expanding areas of foods, 
brewing and leisure is a 
tantalising prospect.

and minds of Imperial share-! 
holders is well under way

Malaysian 
bank is 
censured 


Kuala Lumpur (Reuter) — 
An official report released 
yesterday on Malaysia's worst 
financial scandal attacked one 
of the country's biggest banks 
for losing some 2.5 billion 
ringgit (£685 million) in bad 
property loans. 

A separate White Paper 
tabled in parliament also se- 
verely criticized the bank. 
Bank Bumiputra Malaysia 
Bierhad (BBM-Bj, and its Hong 
Kong subsidiary, Bumiputra 
Malaysia Finance - Ltd 

“We have come across 
irregularities, frauds, criminal 
breach of trust, theft, actions 
in complete disregard of hon- 
est commercial practice and 
contravention of several laws 
in Malaysia and Hong Kong in 
respect of the administration 
and operation of BMFL.” a 
summary of the report said. 

The 6,000-page report by a 
government-appointed three- 
man team also died “irregu- 
larities, criminal breach of 
trust and false accounting in 
relation to the administration 
and operation of BBMB”. 

The team, beaded by Tan 
$ri Ahmad Noordin, the 
country's auditor general, de- 
clined to distinguish the dis- 
honest from the naive among 
.those involved. 

Those who may have been 
criminally involved were 
named in separate special 
briefs. 

The report detailed loans 
made between 1979 and 1983 
by BMFL, mainly to the Hong 
Kong-based Carrian group of 
companies which collapsed in 
October 1983 with debts of 
more than £685 million. 

The bad BMF loans left 
Bank .Bumiputra with such 
huge debts that the Malaysian 
government had to ask its 
cash-rich national oil compa- 
ny Fetronas to take over the 
Hong Kong debts and buy a 
controlling stake in the trou- 
bled bank. 


Stylo up

• By Judith Huntley 
Commercial Property 
Correspondent 


Imperial is in the hands 
small shareholders, who tend, 
to be greatly influenced by< 
their board. 


Speculation is mounting, 
that a bid will be launched for 
Stylo, the property-rich shoe 
company controlled by the 
Ziff family. 

Stylo’s shares zoomed up to 
236p yesterday, -a -35p per 
share increase, on h opes of a 
bid.

offer for the company proved 
abortive in January last year. 

British Land ays it is not 
selling or buying its shares but 
is holding on to its stake for 
which it paid about 176p per 
share. 

' There are rumours that the 
Ziff family may be about to 
change the archaic voting 
structure in Stylo which gives 
management shares 16 votes 
compared to the one vote for 
theordinary shares. British 
Land's stake gives it only 13 
per cent of the voting rights in 
Stylo. If the management 
stares, controlled by the Ziff 
family, were to be enfran- 
chised, it would make a 
takeover a possibility. 

The Gty feels that 300p per 
share might sway the Ziff 
family to sell out, something 
which it has vigorously resist- 
ed SO far by maintaining the 
existing voting structure. 

British Land was not alone 
in making a play for Stylo.

STOCK MARKET REPORT 


Shares surge to peak on 
fresh takeover wave 


A flood of new takeovers and 
another encouraging set of 
tank tending and money sup- 
ply figures sent share prices 
soaring to new records. The 
FT 30-share index gained 21 .2 
to close at 1326.8 and the FT- 
SE rose 24.9 to 1597.1. 

Almost all sectors enjoyed 
strong buying from domestic 
and overseas institutions. 
Stock was again in short 
supply in these one-way con- 
ditions so that gains of 20p to 
30p were frequent in many of 
the secondary issues. 

Gilts set the trend from the 
outset, a firm pound and the 
lure of lower interest rates in 
next week’s Budget or before, 
proving too hard to resist. The 
money and bank tending fig- 
ores announced at 230pm 
gave them an additional boost 
so that quotations closed at 
the best levels of the day with 
rises of 1 l h points. 

Equities received a fillip 
from four new takeovers 
which stimulated fresh inter- 
est in other speculative 
favourites. A dual merger deal 
from John Crowther lifted 
MCD Group I lp to 207 p and 
WW Group 120p to 370p. 

John Crowther slipped 2p 
to 141p but other carpet shares 
reflected the growing rational- 
ization in the industry. Hugh 
Mackay at 88p and 
Tomkinsons 138p rose 6p and 
lOp. 

Cope Allman was hoisted 
60p to 343p on the news that 
Hawley Group (up 2p to 1 19p) 
was bidding for the remaining 
shares it did not already own. 
Bosh Radio jumped 7p to 
1 58p on the terms from 
Prestwich Holdings back from 
suspension at 153p up 7p. 

Among engineers, the ex- 
pected increased teams from 
McKedraie Group added 3p 
to Newman Tonks at 137p. 
The prospect of cheaper mort- 


gages produced some big gains 
among builders and stores. 
Woolwoith soared 42p to 587p 
on rumours subsequently de- 
nied of a bid from Dixons 
Group, 8p better at 31 8p. 

Others in the sector to 
attract interest included John 
Menzies at 333p up I8p, and 
Barton 12p higher at 278p. 
News of a £10 million rights 
issue cut 4p from Pentos at 
78p. 

In builders. Bine Circle 
climbed 20p to 62Sp and 
Meyer International ad- 
vanced 15p to 234p. Costain 
gained I4p to 522p after the 
Australian subsidiary results, 
white land sales to British 
Telecom helped Taylor Wood- 
row to a 15p rise at 548p. 

Martonair, in receipt of an 
unwelcome offer from IMI, 
rose 40p more to 640p. IMI 
improved 13p to 178p. 

Engineers continued to re- 
flect cheaper oil and the 
impact on profits. Babcock at 
207p, Glynwed 322p and TI 
Group 499p were among those 
to advance 9p to 1 6p. System 


Designers put on lOp to I22p 
ahead of today's results. 

Also reporting today, BTR 
added 7p to 460p (dealers are 
looking for £350 million) and 
Guest Keen & Nettlefolds 
improved 8p to 336p (£133 
million expected). British 
Telecom, with third quarter 
figures due tomorrow, reached 
a new peak of 230p up 8p. 

BBA Group was hoisted 1 5p 
to 2l8p as Automotive Prod- 
ucts (I6p higher at 213p) 
gained control. In foods, 
HiUsdown Holdings hardened 
2 p to 240p after good results, 
but a 17 per cent expansion 
failed to support United Bis- 
cuits at 229p down 4p. 

Unigate attracted fresh 
speculative interest at 270p up 
Sp but fading bid hopes 
knocked 8p from Fitch LoveU 
at 2S4p. Press suggestions of a 
possible American bid 
siren gibed Cadbury at lSlp 
up4p. 

Recovery prospects boosted 
Lex Service Group 22p to 
34 9p. Kenniug Motor gained 
lOp to I73p on hopes ofa fidl

Hong Kong (Agencies) — 
The Hongkong & Shanghai 
Banking Corporation said yes- 
terday it was earmarking hun- 
dreds of millions of dollars for 
possible fosses on doubtful 
loans to the crown colony’s 
hard-hit shipping industry. 

The bank reported disap- 
pointing profits for 1985 and 
blamed the results on shipping 
loans. 

Two leading Hong Kong 
shipping firms. Orient Over- 
seas and Wall Kwong. have 
been hit by the worldwide 
slump in the industry and 
have asked bankers for help 
with debt problems. 

Mr Michael Sandberg, the 
bank’s chairman, said: “We 
are a bit disappointed. We 


don't see any turnaround for 
the shipping industry yet." 
The bank’s attributable profits 
rose only 5 per cent to 
HKS2.72 billion amid stock 
market predictions of much 
fester growth. 

The final dividend is 
HKS0.3I, up from an adjusted 
HKS0.28, payable on May 13. 
The total payout for the year is 
HKS0.46. 

Profits were also hurt by the 
deepening recession in South- 
east Asia and tire impact of 
falling oil prices on its lending 
in the Middle East 

It predicted higher profits 
this year but warned not to 
take “too rosy” a view due to 
continued economic sluggish- 
ness in the region. 


The directors consider that 
the profitability of the group 
will show a steady increase 
and are confident they can 
recommend at least the same 
dividend as for 1985 
(HKS0.38 per share) on the 
increased capital as proposed. 

The board says the econom- 
ic recovery in the industrial- 
ized countries is forecast to 
pick up, albeit slowly. At the 
same time, concern over ex- 
change rate volatility and 
attempts by the US to reduce 
its trade unbalance indicate 
that the growth of world trade 
wiU probably remain sluggish. 

The combination of these 
factors and the weakness of oil 
and other commodity prices 
are likely to have an adverse 


impact on the economies of 
most Third World nations and 
trading conditions are likely to 
continue to be very difficult. 

The decline of the US dollar 
(and hence the Hong Kong 
dollar) will have a favourable 
effect on exports, which are 
expected to show some 
growth. 

The board has decided to set 
up a special provision from 
inner reserves against certain 
large shipping exposures. 

In South-east Asia the 
depening economic recession 
towards the year end necessi- 
tated higher-than-expecled 
provisions for doubtful debts 
and consequently sharply low- 
er profits.

FINANCE AND INDUSTRY 


THE TIMES WEDNESDAY MARCH 12 1986 


\ BUDGET BRIEFING 


Choices for change in National Insurance 


The Chancellor's scope for action in the 
Budget is limited. The consensus is that there will be 
no room for a net giveaway next week and that Mr 
Lawson will have to resort to shifting between 
different types of tax- Despite the Substantial reforms 
last year, there is speculation that the Badge! will con- 
tain more National Insurance changes. David Smith, 
Economics Correspondent, looks at the options. 


The Chancellor's main Bud- 
get innovation a year ago was 
in National Insurance contri- 
butions. Will he take things 
further next week? 

The 1985 Budget intro- 
duced a scale of reduced 
contributions, for both em- 
ployers and employees, at the 
lower end of the pay scale. 
Since October, a lower rate of 
S per cent has applied on 
earnings of £35.50 to £55 a 
w eek, rising to 7 per cent in the 
£55 to £9D range. 

Employees pay a top rate of 
9 per cent on ail earnings from 
£90 lo £265 a week, the upper 
earnings limit for contribu- 
tions. Employers pay 9 per 
cent for earnings of £90 to 
£130 a week, and 10.45 per 
cent on all earnings higher 
than that The upper earnings 
limit on employers' contribu- 
tions was lifted in last year's 
Budget 

The clear intention of the 
changes was to shift the bal- 
ance in favour of taking on 
more people, particularly part- 
time workers and low paid, 
unskilled workers, by cutting 
the cost to firms of employing 
them. 


The changes also imposed 
definite financial penalties, on 
both employers and employ- 
ees, upon large pay increases 
and. in the case of Lite removal 
of the upper limit on 
employers* contributions, on 
high salaries per se. 

One criticism of the new 
system was that it introduced 
a series of step changes in 
National Insurance costs, 
which could have the effect of 
locking the low paid perma- 
nently into low pay. 

The new contribution rates 
came into force on October 6 
last year. Although six months 
is too short a period to judge, 
there is little evidence so far of 
any boost to unskilled unem- 
ployment. or any restraining 
influence on pay. 

Jt can be argued that the 
improved trend for unem- 
ployment in the six months to 
November, with no net rise in 
the adult total, was partly due 
to anticipation of the National 
Insurance changes. But the 
deterioration since then, with 
the absence of evidence from 
employers that the new rates 
have influenced employraem 
io effect 



Concerns: Sir Geoffrey Howe sees perks as wasteful while 
Mrs Thatcher is said to be irritated by high City salaries 


decisions, suggests no ' 


On pay, average earnings in 
the economy have been in- 
creasing at an underlying rate 
of 7.5 per cent since the 
middle of 1984. apart from a 
one quarter poiat upward blip 
Iasi September. Neither the 
National Insurance reforms, 
nor variations in the rate of 
inflation appear to have had 
much impact on earnings 
growth. 

Another expected conse- 
quence of the last Budget, a 
perks boom because of die 
removal of the upper earnings 
limit, has not materialized. 
The logic was that employers, 
suddenly faced with a higher 
National Insurance bill for 
their highly salaried workers, 
would opt for a higher propor- 
tion of non-monetary rewards 


HongkongBank 



The Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Corporation 

Incorporated in Hong Kong with limited liability 


Results for 1985 


The Directors announce that (subject to audit I the profit for the year ended 31 December 
1985 attributable lothe shareholders of the Bank was approximately HK$2,7I9 million 
( J984: HKS2.59I million), an increase of 5 percent. The profit was arrived at after 
providing for taxation and after making transfers to inner reserves, out of which provision 
for changes in the value of assets has beer. made. Audited accounts will be published at a 
later date. 


The working profit in most areas was in line with expectations, with the Hong K.on«_ 


operations turning in a particularly good performance. In three ureas however the final 
result was disappointing. In South East Asia the deepening economic recession towards 


the year end necessitated higher than expected provisions for doubtful debts and 

ondly. the accelerating fall in the oil price during 


consequently sharply lower profits. Secondly, 
the second half of the year adversely affected the operations of the British Bank of the 
Middle East: and lastly, conservative provisions incur associated shipping investments 
revuhed in a negative return from these investments. 

The problems of the shipping industry around the world have been well publicised and 


have caused concern to many leading international banks. These problems can no longer 

Boa 


be regarded as purely cyclical. The Board have therefore decided to set up a special 
provision from inner reserves against certain large shipping exposures. Notwithstanding 
thi*» provision the inner reserves of the Bank have increased and stand higher than they 
did Iasi year. No provisions arc necessary for advances to our associated shipping 
companies. 

The Directors propose the payment of a final dividendof HKSfi.31 persharc. Together 
with the interim dividend of HKS472 million already paid, the total distribution for 1985 
will amount to HKS1.447 million 11984: HKSl. 31b million), an increase of 10 percent.

Meeting that a capitalisation issue of shares be made in the proportion of one new share 
for every five shares held on !3May 1986 by the capitalisation of HK$l.572.92h.97H from

sluggish. The combination of these factors andThe weakness of oil and other commodity 
prices are likely to have an adverse impact on the economies of most third world nations 
and iradine conditions are Jikelv to continue to be verv difficult. 


In Kong Kong, though loan demand is weak, the business outlook is still generally 
positive. The decline of the US dollar land hence the HK dollar! will have a favourable 
effect on exports, w hich are expected to show some growth. It is hoped that trade w itli 
China will continue to expand. 

Against this background the Directors consider that profitability of the Group will show a 
steady increase and they are confident of their ability to recommend at least the same 
quantum of dividend as tor 19X5. that is HKSU.38 per share on the increased capital as 
proposed. 


B\ Order of the Board 
FR Frame 
St'CMurv 


Hons: Rone. I ) March |9Xr» 




The. effect of the National 
Insurance changes announced 
a year ago seem to have had 
litue effect Does ibis mean 
that the Chancellor will leave 
things as they are. consigning 
such reform to the Treasury 
dustbin of bright but unsuc- 
cessful ideas? Or will he 
instead deride that last year’s 
changes, while in the right 
direction, were too timid to 
have the desired effects? 

The latter course, if chosen, 
opens a number of possibili- 
ties. Most prominent is the 
argument that to make it 
attractive for Anns to take on 
lower paid unskilled workers, 
a reduced rate of National 
Insurance contributions is not 
enough, instead contributions 
should be abolished for those 


on less than, say £90 a week. 

There are two problems. 
One is the cost, more than £i 
billion in a full year. The 
second is the sudden move 
from National Insurance ex- 
emption to normal rates of 
contribution, implying very 
high marginal tax rates. 

This could be avoided by 
introducing a smoother scale 
of contribution rates, avoiding 
the present problem of step 
changes, while at the same 
time increasing the pay level 
at which National Insurance 
starts to be paid, by more than 
inflation. 

The Institute for Fiscal 
Studies suggests taking last 
year’s strategy a stage further 
by lowering the rates, to 3 per 
cent for those on £35.50 to £55 
a week, and 6 per cent for 
those earning £55 to £90. 

In this Budget generally, 
and for National Insurance m 
particular, changes have to be 
revenue neutral There is a 
way, albeit a rather painful 
one. that the Chancellor could 
finance National Insurance 
concessions at the bottom of 
the pay scale. This is by 
increasing the National Insur- 
ance take from the better paid. 

This could be achieve! in 
one of two ways. The first is by 
further increasing the penalty 
on employers of having well 
paid workers, by increasing 
tbe top rate of employers' 
contributions from tbe pres- 
ent 1 0.45 per cent. 


The second, and far simpler 
option is to remove tbe upper 
earnings limit on employees 
contributions. People earning 
more than £265 a week, or 
£13,800 a year, would pay 9 
per cent contributions on all 
earnings, the current maxi- 
mum of £265 bring removed. 

The effects of this, apart 
from causing apoplexy at (he 
Institute of Directors, would 
be to restore the top marginal 
rate of personal taxation to 
something like 69 per cent, 
hardly consistent with the 
Government's enterprise cul- 
ture. 

It might hit those high Gty 
salaries which Mrs Thatcher is 
said to be irritated about But 
it would hit a lot of other, 
managerial and directorial sal- 
aries. 

This, more than the remov- 
al of the employers’s upper 
limit, could be expected to 
produce a push from employ- 
ees for perks to replace earn- 
ings. When Sir Geoffrey Howe 
was Chancellor, he was partic- 
ularly hard on perks, describ- 
ing them as wasteful and 
inefficient. 

The chances are t hat an y 
chang es in National Insurance 
this time will be marginal, and 
probably concentrated at tbe 
lower end of the pay scale. The 
Chancellor will claim that last 
year’s reforms were a good 
thing, which have not had 
time to work through proper- 
ly-

W hen the engineering 
industry’s top &&- 
Sion- makers get togEJtfi- . 
er at the W inning - 
Maqjin Conference on 
March 23 and 24, it is notgoing to be 
a ritual back-slapping event Alter 
decades of difficulty the prevailing 
mood in the industry is one of grim 
detenninaiion. 

The fight to regain prestige and 
market share has a long way to go. ■ 
The regeneration of the engineering 
base, with its need for investment in 
new technology and new skills, is still 
in its early stages. 

Consequently, there is tittle chance 
of complacency from Lord Young, 
Norman Willis or captains of indus- 
try, such as Sir Francis Tombs, John 
Egan and Sir Dennis Rooke, when 
they address their audience of fellow 
Industrialists on the crucial need for 
investment in engineering -training. 
Instead there will be calls for action 
already long overdue. 

High-powered drive for .• 
greater commitment 

Bill Fnggeps, of the. Engineering 
Industry Training Board (EITB); 
which is organizing the conference; 
says: “With some notable exceptions, 
the industry has not gqta good record 
on training. It is our arm to bring this 
truth', home to the audience and 
encourage them, to do some thing 
about it.” ■ 

.For the board, the conference 
represents-" a - concerted attack on - 
complacency at the lop of our bey 
engineering companies; it is the start 
of a high-powered, high-profile and 
sometimes controversial campaign to 
lead the engineering industry to a new 

Frontal

snobbish 

Rebels usually come down 
from the hills. But it is feom 
the sixth floor of the Depart- 
ment of Employment that the 
Secretary of State Lord • 

Young, keynote speaker at the 
EfTB’s Winning Margin cot-.. . 

Terence, decends to lead bis . 

persona] revolt against genera- 
tions of entrenched privilege . Lord 
and prejudice. 

With great vigour he cam- somg 
paigns against what be sees as a °°y 
the harmful social attitudes of 
the British - GendemanJiness “ K 
(with its hostility to industry), UKtm ; 
Academic Snobbishness PPPm

Superiority (wbiebdisdains to

Together these factors have *> al ^ 
sapped the will to make 
Britain a successful manufac- . Bn1

Other countries, of course, j™™ 
are not subject to these influ- necau

level of commitment to training. 

The-backgrpupd toihe conference 
is bleak. During the' past couple of 
years there .-have been important 
reports from organizations such as 
the Manpower- Services Commission 
. and the National Economic Develop- 
ment Office, which demonstrate that 
compared with our more successful 
trading rivals, we- spend little on : 
training. The relationship between a 
- well-trained, well-qualified work' 
force and. profitability has been 
demonstrated irrefutably. 

Yet somehow the message has not 
been “acted om 'There ~ has been 
consistent shortsightedness based on 
expediency, which has led to the 
running-down of training pro- 
grammes. In the year since 1978, for 
example, training in engineering has 
falloi significantly. There is now less 
training per person than at any time 
in recent history: And despite the 
skills crisis in electronics and infor- 
mation technology, there is stfil no 
widespread sense of urgency. 

That is the problem the Winning 
Margin Conference will tackle. It is 
also the problem the training board 
tackles every day. As the Govern- 
ment-appointed body with the re- 
sponsibility for setting standards and 
monitoring training, h is not in a 
comfortable position. Inevitably 
some of the blame for the failure to 
train has rubbed off on the board. 

Yet in practice it has little power to 
go out-and change things directly. “At 
the end of the day,” says Mr 
-Friggens,“it is the individual engi- 
neering companies which makes the 
decisions on investing in training. All 

we can do at tbeboard is to encourage 

them, persuade them and then pro- 
vide the training expertise on how 
bestiodbfL” 

Though the position is far from 


satisfactory, there are grounds for 
hope. The new realism that runs 
.through many companies has also 
focussed attention on the significance 
of training. In particular, the intro- 
duction of advanced technology bas 
meant that many companies have 
been faced, inescapably, with the 
need to train and equip staff with the 
skills needed to operate the new 
systems. {At Austin Rover for exam- 
ple, training has played a crucial part 
in the overall strategy of introducing 
automation and computerized sys- 
tems). 

The EITB has set up new ad- 
vanced-technology training, which is 
specifically geared to helping compa- 
nies meet their new skill require- 
ments. And this is just one part of the 
regained confidence and determina- 
tion which increasingly characterizes 
the policies of the board. A corporate 
business plan has just been drawn up 
which identifies the key issues faring 
the industry and lays down an agenda 

Updating of skills is vital 
throughout a company 

for action. 

Pennant Jones a senior officer with 
the board and a veteran of its many 
ups-and-downs. commented: “There 
is a new zest and excitement in the 
boards. with dear objectives and a 
feeling that we're on our way up 
again.” 

From the board’s viewpoint, just as 
much as the industry's, the last 13 
years have not been easy. The 
situation has been complicated by 
successive changes in its finding 
arrangements (aLiemaiely from in- 
dustry to government and back to 
industry again) accompanied by ma- 


jor reviews of whether it should exist 
at all. 

Thai it has survived and is now set 
for a dynamic future 
reflects the fact that there have been a 
number of achievements as well as 
setbacks. For example, the EITB was 
the first training body to lay down 
precise standards for craft and techni- 
cian level training and led the move 
away from traditional “time-serving' 
apprenticeships. 

It also pioneered the concept that 
training was not. by itself, enough, 
but that it should be seen as part of 
long-term manpower planning and 
take account of a company’s strategic 
skill needs. Furthermore the board 
has campaigned for training for 
managers, supervisors and shop-floor 
workers, underlining the feet that the 
up-dating of skills is necessary at a// 
levels of a company. 

The board 

hopes to forge a closer relationship 
between its craft and technician 
apprenticeship system and the 
Government's Youth Training 
Scheme. It still needs to work out the 
sometimes-conflicting jobs of both 
leading and serving the engineering 
industry on training matters but the 
path-finding work it is now doing in 
areas such as surface-mount technol- 
ogy suggests that leadership through 
example will increasingly be its style. 

The Engineering Careers Informa- 
tion Service is a major service of the 
EITB and has for years been the 
standard-bearer for the industry’ in 
the classrooms, lecture theatres and 
careers libraries of the nation's 
schools. If the EITB’s achievements 
match its ambitions, the ECIS's job of 
spreading the good news about 
British engineering to the country's 
young people should be made a lot 
easier. 



Computer integrated technol- 
ogy — CIM — has been called 
the most promising technology 
of the late 20th century and 
Cranfield Institute of Technol- 
ogy has founded a CIM insti- 
tute at its Bedfordshire 
campus to research and teach 
the subject. Above, Simon 
McGrath, right, works in the 
robotics laboratory with the 
institute's associate professor. 


On the button 
at Cranfield 

Dr Peter Sackett. IBM is 
proriding the institute with £3 
million for computer hard- 
ware; software and other help. 
Dr Sackett said the institute 
already has 200 post-graduate 
students, who will carry out 


work of “direct relevance” to 
their industrial sponsors. He 
added: “Computer integrated 
manufacture creates the 
means for manufacturing com- 
panies to achieve a competitive 
market position. The CIM 
masters-degree programme 
will provide young engineers 
able to realize the current and 
future potential of this rapidly 
changing technology .” 




Lord Yorang: Campaigning ' Bill Friggens: TJad recortF 


going against the trend, set up 
a course in business manage- 
ment. Unfortunately it attract- 
ed 1 few . recruits from local 
industry. However it was very 
popular with students from 
overseas who flocked to it — 




contingent from Japan. 

“This was over 70 years ago, 
so attitudes have not changed 
much since.” 

British industry is now fry- 
ing desperately to recover 
from this history of neglect. 
Because the task is so enor- 
mous Lord Young is a man in 
a huny. 

He says: “In the past four

years we’ve introduced the 
Youth Training Scheme for 16 1 
and 17 year-old school-leav- 
ers, the Technical and Voca- 
tional Education Initiative for 
14 to 18 year-olds, and we now 
have our major Review of 




These are major achievements 
in such a short time.” 

All three are vital to create 
the kind of mobile, skilled 
(and re-skilled) workforce 
needed to keep abreast of the 
chang ing demands of manu- 
facturing industry. 

Now that so many big 
organizations are backing the 
new two-year scheme, the 
signs are that it is achieving 
acceptance and credibility. 

Companies such as IQ, 
which originally came in, on 
some of their sites, purely for 
soda! reasons are beginning to 
take trainees into proper per- 
manent jobs. Meanwhile, 
where engineering is con- 
cerned; the EITB is giving its 
backing to YTS. 

Lord Young points with 
satisfaction to the increasing 
number of young people 
showing interest in the possi- 
bilities of self-employment 
and starting small businesses. 

In higher education he wel-

Time for interactive 



Name two fields In which 
Britain can still claim a place 
in the world's first division: 
Television? Yes, certainly. 
And software design? Quite 
likely. 

Both of these skills are now 
being focussed on the making 
of interactive video for train- 
ing purposes. The well-estab- 
lished native talent for 
conveying complex ideas in a 
clear but exciting way — so 
well demonstrated m a genera- 
tion of science programmes — 
is being extended and en- 
hanced by the flexible 
“programmability’’ of the vid- 
eo disc. Britain might not have 
invented the technology, but 
at least we can cash in on its 
applications. ■ 

One of the companies which 
has been set up to develop 
training through videodisc is 


(he eponymous Videodisc 
Company, which brings to- 
gether Michael Blakstad, for- 
mer award-winning editor of 
Tomorrow 's World , 

Hawkshead (a TV and video 
production company) and re-, 
search staff of the design 
information research unit at 
Portsmouth Polytechnic. 

According to Mike Harri- 
son, executive producer for 
the Videodisc Company, the 
time has come when the 
novelty of inter-activity is 
wearing off and henceforward 
the medium will stand or fell 
by the calibre of the content. 

Mr Harrison says: “A train- 
ing package isn't necessarily 
good because it’s delivered by 
inter-active video. It is the 
quality of the ideas it contains 
that really cornu.” 

What distinguishes The 


Videodisc Company from 
most of its rivals is that it has 
taken the flexibility of the 
videodisc to its logical conclu- 
sion by programming in a 
“spectrum” of learning styfcs. 

‘Mr Harrison adds: “Re- 
search on how people learn 
has shown roughly four main 
stiles. There’s the activist 
who wants to get into the 
material quickly and receive 
quick feedback, the theorist, 
who is logical and disciplined, 
the pragmatist, for whom 
practical techniques are mo* 
important, and the reflector, 
who wants plenty of infla- 
tion and to think carefully 
before doing anything” . 

In most training packages 
everybody has to go down the 
same trade, with the result that 
the wrong style is being used 


for about three-quarters of the 
trainees. By taking advantage 
of the programmable flexibib- 
iv ofibc videodisc, however, it 
is posable to diagnose an 
individual trainee's optimum 
learning sty le and present the 
material in that way. 

Engineering training is ex- 
pected to provide rich oppor* 
(unities for the imcr-active 
videodisc. 

Mr Harrison says: “inteiac- 
live video ‘has. already been 
used extensively on the up- 
dating of skills among motor 
mechanics and. it has a. wide 
range of app&cations among 

maintenance staff generally, it 
will be tike having a compre- 
hensive manual which tells 
you exactly what to do and 
also incorporates full sound- 
effects and moving pictures." 


It may be hard to swallow but 
perhaps one of the reasons 
training has been neglected in 
Britain is that a lotofii has not 
been good. Too often training 
courses are viewed as being 
remote from the real job. 

A great contribution to this 
has been made in the last few 
years by the Testing Services 
unit at the City and Guilds of 
London Institute. Not, it 
should be made dear, that the 
unit is expert on training as 
such — like toe rest of the City 
and Guilds of London Insti- 
tute its professional skills lie in 
the setting of examinations 
and assessments. 

But by providing a custom- 
ized service to individual 
industrial and commercial cli- 
ents, CGLI Testing Services 
has set standards of perfor- 
mance that relate specifically 
to the skills needed by crafts 
people and technicians in their 
jobs. The immediate result is 
that training becomes better 
targetted on what is needed in 


Making training 
fit fee job 



■ .v 


Testing Services starts from 
the simple questions, what do 
you need to know, what do 
you have to be able to do and 
to what standard in order to 
perform a task satisfactorily. 
Only once you have got dear 
and comprehensive answers 
to the questions can you start 
to devise tests that measure 
effectively the trainee's ability. 

Perhaps surprisingly, these 
simple but fundamental ques- 
tions have often been over- 
looked by trainers. Time after 
time, the task-needs analysis 
and evaluation of perfor- 
mance standards undertaken 
by Testing Services has re- 
vealed that traditional train-

Hardy Jones, who beads the responsibility for the trainin g 
lit says: “Our policy is to standards of people working 

in chemical plants, 

A few yeais ago the associa- 
tion decided to shift its craft 
apprenticeship scheme for 
maintenance engineers away 
from traditional time-serving 
and towards a system based 
on recognized standards of 
performance. Not having- the 
expertise to do this, himself 
Bill McNichoL the CIA's 
training expert, turned to City 
and Guilds for help. ' 

. After extensive surveys in- 
volving most of the big petro- 
chemical companies. Testing 
Se vices came up with a range 
of detailed objectives in the 
four key work areas: mechani-

unit, . 

work very closely with clients 
in drawing up their tests. 
We’re offering industry-led 
training and assessment be- 
cause individual companies 
are the best experts on their 
requirements." 

In effect, the tests and 
assessments laid down by the 
uni t provide a kind of com- 
pass point for the trainers to 
aim for. So long as they are 
working towards the tasks and 
standards laid down by Test- 
ing Services, they can be 
confident they are covering 
the ground and leaching die 
slrifls to the standards needed 
by the job.

working methods and stan- 
dards could be measured in

Trainee had reached tire re-

The benefits of the Testing 
Services app roach are enor- 
mous. Trainees know -exactly 
what they are aiming for. .411 
the trainee is .specifically 
relevant to the job. There is no 
doubt car uncertainty about the 
standards which must be 
reached. The overall result is 
that effective trabting is seen 
by everyone as befog the key 
to getting the job dotre proper- 
ly. .. ♦ 

Mr Tories is finding now 
that more and more clients 
across a wide span of indus- 
tries are becoming interested 
in using his tedxmques L Com- 
panies as diverse as . Ford. 
Woolworthu and Roneo 
Alcatel as well as organiza- 
tions such as YTS Managing 
Agents and the Glass and 
Glazing Federation have al- 
ready undertaken projects 
with Testing Services. 

Mr Jones said: “We’re offer- 
ing a flexible, cost effective 
service which also enjoys a lot 
of credibility because of City 
and Guilds history. Our ap- 
proach is firmly based on 
industry Ted training, and as- 
sessment.

lems but it prorides an excel- 
lent foundation from which to

Often the newcomer is in the 
best position to deliver the 
hard-to-take home truths. 

And that has, without 
doubt, become the role of the 
Engineering Council Just four 
years old it has developed the 
knack of expressing the kind 
of radical judgments about the 
state of engineering education 
and training that older organi- 
zations would find too sensi- 
tive. 

By coming in as a new force, 
the council has been well- 
placed to campaign for big 
changes in the system of 
vocational education for 
young engineers. 

The Engineering Council is 
an independent body, estab- 
lished by Royal Charier, with 
tire job of advancing the 
education and training of 
engineers and technologists. It 
has three main objectives; to 
improve public awareness of 
the importance of engineering, 
to improve the supply of 
qualified engineers and tech- 
nologists and to set up and

Dr Kenneth Miller. Direc- 
tor General of the Engineering 
Council and former engineer- 
ing adviser to the main board 
of ICL, said: “I believe that 
until very recently there was 
great complacency about the 
seriousness of the decline of 
our engineering industry. Be- 



cause of North Sea we 
have been shielded from the 
foil effects of falling market- 
share. There is now only a 
tittle time left for us to rebuild 
and recover". 

Dr Miller is convinced that 
in the long term there has to be 
a fundamental restructuring of 
the engineering base of the 
country. There needs to be 
pro-industry rather than an 
anti-industry culture _ and

'FLO GROUP 


and getting engineering quali- 
fications. 

Engineering training ilselC 
says Dr Miller, must be broad- 
er-based to make it easier for 
graduates and technicians to 
build on specialized skills. 

A serious problem for many 
engineering students in higher 
education is that their course 
are not sufficiently indusuial- 
ty-rdeyant. The engineering 
disciplines are seen more in# 
terms of an a ca d e mi c exercise 
than as a preparation for a . 
competitive business world. 

Unfortunately it is hard to 
persuade some universities to 
move with the times; one of 
the Engineering Council’s 
most innovatory suggestions 
is that there should he more 
direct allocations of money to 
the universities, actually spec- 
ifying what the money should 
be spent on. The Council 
considers that the ' . less 
favourable treatment often 
given to the polytechnic engi- 
neering courses should end. 

. But changing the engineer- 
ing base, persuading more 
women to enter engineering ▼ 
.and shifting public attitudes 
; and prejudices is going to he a 
‘ long process. More immediate 
expedients are needed to get 
the industry through its 
present problems. - • 

Certainly, the: council has 
come up with a. n umb er of 
ideas for older students to help 
them reach the standard need- 
ed for a degree or Higher 
Diploma course, which have 
the merits of being a ample 
and pragmatic response to .an 
urgent problem. 

The other key factor for foe 
survival of the industry is an 
extensive programme of con-’A 
nnuous education and. train- 
ing. In no. career area more 
than engineering does foe 
basic professional knowledge . 
outdare so quickly. 

The council says: w The new 
technological -developments 
me now taking place to repidly 
that to remain competitive in 
1 world markets, . industrial 
companies need engineers and 
technicians who are up to date 
and able. to take a leading role 
ra bringing about technologi- 
cal changes. To succeed in 
this, even greater emphasis 
must be placed on their con- 4ft 
tin uxug education and” 
training*, . 

IV Miller is urging universi- 
ties, polytechnics, and colleges 
of tim ber education to get to 
grips with foe problems of 
providing short, flexible-,, 
modular courses for industry. 

, He predids that open leant- 
mg will ha vean enormous role 
to play, m this area. 

..He has no illosioss about 
.the difficulty of achieving 0 . 
these lands .of changes in 
British society. In the same 
way as there is a. prevailing 
anti-industry culture Dr 
Mifler detects that There is- an

How Britain puts the vim in CIM 



Pioneering open learning m} 
Britain, has been the Open: 
Tech Unit of the Manpower] 
Services Commission. With a! 
£46 million budget, it has set 
more than 100 "mod eT open-i 
teaming schemes and in- 
volved leading ‘ companies? 
such as Trust House Forte: 
Austin Rover, ICI and Lucas. I 

In most cases that will alsc 
indude some tutorial support 

Though there are many practi-j 

cal differences between thej 
“open tech” and the Openj 
University, they share the 
belief that you cannot dis-> 
pense completely with the 
human teacher. 

Probably the dearest sign 

that open learning has reached 

take-off point is that the first 
big conference and exhibition 
on open-' learning, .* Spring 
Open, is being, held at the 
Novotd Exhflntion Gentre at 
Hammersmith, west Lond on , 
on April 29 and 30. . 


All the signs are that 1986 is 
going to become the year of 
CUM. The acronym stands for 
computer integrated manufac- 
turing but, iimike its cousins 
such as CAD, CAM, and CAE, 
CIM is being immediately 
distinguished by having a 
number , of centres and insti- 
tutes set up in its name. 

A CIM institute has been 
launched at Cranfield Insti- 
tute ofTechncflogy, with mon- 
ey from IBM. under the 
direction of Sir Henry Quiver 
and a centre is being opened 
soon at Kingston Polytechnic 
near London. And there are 
OM developments at War- 
wick University (also funded 
by IBM). - . 

The two Glasgow universi- 
ties — Strathcykle and Glas- 
gow — are also, expected to 
a tending role in COME 
developments stimulated by 
the proximity of the 
man ufacturing plant at Gree- 
nock. 

Cars importance however 
is not just marked by the 


computers, robotics, and auto- petitors. If British industry is

. investment in robots and

cal flavour of the month- CIM 
is the future. . . #

and anxiety caused by CIM 
represents, perhaps, theend of 
the age of innocence about

of CIM is not 
going to be an 
overnight 
event. Profes-

there will be some postgradu- unstaflo 


Only by the year 2100 will ■ 
unstan ed production facilities 


be widespread (which at least 
gives some time to prepare for 
the social consequences). 

Whatever the difficulties, 
however, the commercial in- 
centives to introduce CIM are 
going to be enormous. 

And that is why the function 
of the new CIM initiatives will 
be so important 

There are thousands of 
electrical, electronic, mechani- 
cal and production engineers 
(not to mention a vast army of 
general managers) who need 
tr ainin g in what CIM means 
and how to implement it 
successfully. 

It requires a combination of 
skills (computing, engineer- 
ing, and business) which per- 
haps does not come easily to 
British industry. But if this 
country is to stand any chance 
of retaining its place as a 
-leading manufacturing nation, 
it must become involved in 
CIM as rapidly as possible.

TRAINING FOR 
PROFIT 

A series of conferences and exhibitions demonstrating the 
commercial benefits of training and the current appkahons af 
new technologies are being organised m 1986 and beyond by 
Queensdale Exhibitions and Conferences who are specialists in 
the training field.

* taking out into the 

future is something Lucas has 

never been afraid of . 

And it's the reason why we 
continue to play a leading role 
in a variety of advanced 
technologies the world over. 
Technologies like Aerospace. 
Automotive. Industried Systems. 
Defence. Telecommunications. 
Marine.' And a lot more. 

New products* new markets 
and new marurfaduring 
methods are aR areas in which 
we've been invessing fw the 

future. 

There's one area of investment 
however, which is even more 
important. People. The quality 
and professional ddB of our 
staff is fundamental to our 
success, and that's why we are 
devoting more aid more 
resources to training and 
re-training -in fad over £40 
million this year. 

And why, when it comes to 
breaking future barriers, there's 
no holding us back. 


Engineers-shaping up to tomorrow 

C Qualified engineers of tomorrow must be technically competent, 
market conscious, commercially adept, environmentally sensitive 
and responsive to human needs 9 

With these words, The Engineering Council 
opens its booklet “Raising the Standard” which sets 
out the system through which it ensures that the 
standards of engineering education and training are 
relevant to today and tomorrow. 

The nation needs more engineers. They must 
be well educated and trained. They must be able to 
communicate across disciplines and to non-engineers, 
too. And they must be prepared to continue training 
throughout life to keep up to date with advancing 
technology. In all these areas, The Engineering Council 
is taking the lead, fighting to help Britain make it 

+ Through Problem Solvingfor Primary Schools, 

Opening Windows on Engineering schemes in secon- 
dary schools and the Young Engineer for Britain 
competition, for example, children will learn of the 
excitement and challenge of engineering. A recent 
independent survey showed that some 75% of qual- 
ified engineers would recommend engineenng as a 
career on account of its interest 

+ The Cdundl, having pressed the Government 
into providing more money for engineering places in 
higher education, ensures that the right standards are 
setand metby the accreditation of courses in universi- 
ties, polytechnics and colleges. 

+ Working with and through the professional 
engineering institutions, it certifies the attainment of 
individuals seeking admission to the Council s Register 
of Chartered Engineers, Technician Engineers and 
Engineering Technicians. 

The Engineering Council with its Engineering 
Assembly of delegates elected by the 300,000 en- 
gineers on Hs Register and with 1 30 Industnal Affiliates 

- many of Britain's leading companies - and with a 
voice listened to by the nation's opinion formers and 
policy makers, is uniquely placed to ensure that there 
will be sufficient engineers of the right quality to meet 
the nation's future needs.

Out for single 
as he is drawn 
to Marshall 



_Jbe second Ten' match 
between England and West 
sponsored by able 
and Wireless, was prolonged 
™“P«edly here yesterdS 
by the England taiL After then* 
three remaining batsmen had 
been out within four overs of 
each other during the first 
hour, jflie bowlers took the 
score from 214 for eight just 
before lunch to 288 for mm* 
half an hour before* Over 
5Q extras, many of them 
were a big help to ~~ 

Botham failed again on 
what is becoming for him a 
thoroughly unhappy tour He 
went to Marshall for a single 
and. had Edmonds not been 
dropped off his first baD. 
England might well lave lost 
by an innings. Instead the new 
ball which Richards took to 
finish off the Engla n d mnmgq 
bad the opposite effect, partly 
because it bounced more than 
the old one. 

With fast shooters coming 
along every two or three overs, 
it was always going to 
prodigies of concentration and 
all the luck that was going for 
England to make a fight of it 
yesterday br ibe event they 
started promisingly. Lam b 
and Willey taking seven off 
Marshals opening over, and 
20 runs coming in the first half 


too many 


hour without 
alarms. 

Then luck, or ill luck, took a 
tend, lam h being oven out 
teg-before to Walsh, me appeal 
half muffled because of the 
sound of bat on hall. Within 
2Q minutes Botham and 
Willey were out as wdl and 
the match was as good as over 
. Whereas on the rest-day 
there had been enough rain to 
have allowed httle play, there 
was now not a cloud m the 


Botham, under enor- 
mous pressure lo succeed, was 
out to ins seventh ball, sur- 
prisingly wdl caught at the 
wicket by -Payne, who is really 
no more than a fielder with 
gloves on, Botham had tune to 
exchange a greeting with Rich- 
ards - 1 cannot share the view 
that even a crisis m a Test 
match. is no place for cordial- 
ity - and to be beaten once by 
Walsh before felling to Mar- 
shall. 

Full of form and confi- 
dence, he might have played . 
no stroke at the balL It was ofa 
perfect length and wide 
enough to have left and he 
had only just come m. But be 
was drawn to it fatally, and 
even out of touch he is sun a 
good enough player to have 
got a thick edge; though the 


bafi left him sharply off the 
pitch 

Botham was a sad sight 
making his way back, gestur- 
ing to those in the press box 
who would be nd of him by 
making as though to pull the 
plug. He never needed encour- 
- agement more than be does at 
the moment It was his thirti- 
eth Test innings against West 
Indies, for which be averages 
21 . 

Soon afterwards Willey re- 
ceived a virtually unplayable 
ball, a fast breakback that 
never left the ground and 
uprooted Ins off stump. It 
would lave needed a barn 
door to stop it In nearly three 
and a half hours he had scored 
26 hard -earned runs. 

Another low breakback 
from Marshall did for 
. Downton, and Emburey 
flicked Walsh firmly off his 
legs but straight to Best some 
15 yards away at backward 


short le^. Marshall became the 


sixth West Indian bowler to 
take 200 Test wickets, in only 
42 Test matches, when be 
dismissed Downton. Almost 
at once Edmonds, having been 
dropped at the wicket off his 
first bafl, looked to be his 
201 st but to Marshals fury he 
survived the appeal for leg- 
before 


Ranatunga’s defiance 
fails to halt Pakistan 


Pakistan beat Sn Lanka by 
eight wickets i ft foe fourth and 
final one-day international to 
clinch the -senes 2-0. with no 
result m two ium-int matches. 
Rain again played its part as 
Pakistan's target was reduced to 
101 runs in 24 overs after Sn 
Lanka had been restricted to 160 
for eight m 38 overs. That target 
proved no problem for Pakistan, 
who were sent on their nay to 
victory by an opening stand of 
65 between Mudassar Nazar 
and MohsmKhan- 

Sn Lanka, sail m to bon. were 
reeling at . 25. for four after 11 
over? but rhanh to Ranatunga. 
who hit a defiant 74 not out 
they were 160 for eight when the 
innings dosed. 

The openers. Ruruppu and 
Ranasmghe. were parted at 13 
when Kuruppu was caught by

Marvelous Marvin Hagler star- 
tled the boxing world by

multi-million dollar rematch 
with Thomas Hearns scheduled 
for later this year it is hard to 
mfc* foe threat seriously. 

Hagler, who bad knocked ont 
Mngabi in the eleventh round, 
told reporters: “B e lieve it or not, 
FU give it some thought, this 
could be my last fight.” On the 
same bill at Cesars Palace 
Hearns had knocked out James 
Shuler hi the first round to take 
his North American Federation 
middleweight title and open op 
the way for a return with Hagler. 


Later, after receiving atten- 
tion for a braised eye, having a 
shower and changing his 
clothes. Hagler added: “I'm not 
co mm itting myself to anything 
now. 1 just got through with a 
tough fight. Let me get borne and 
put it together.” 

The promoter. Bob .Aram, 
said be had few doubts that 
Hagler would continue bis ca- 
reer. 

Hagler started cautiously 
against Mngabi and the Ugan- 
dan managed to land several 
shots lo Hagler’s head. The 
champion then set up relentless 
attacks hot Mngabi brought up a 
swelling on Hauler's eye in the 
ninth round before he began to 
tire. In foe eleventh Hagler 
connected with a barrage of 
blows that pot Mngabi down and 
he was cosnnted out

Davenport’s 
dream turns 
sour for team 


in the red 


When Peter Davenport 
makes his debut for Manches- 
ter United against Queen's 
P&nc Rangers at Loftus Road 
on Saturday a dream will have 
come true for his father, 
Qiaries Davenport, who is a 
Welong United supporter. 
With pride and elation Dav- 
enport senior said; “It’s the 
sort of thing fathers dream 
about". 

Davenport junior, contem- 
plating his £570,000 transfer 
from Nottingham Forest 
which was completed yester- 
day after a medical examina- 
tion, said that, like his father, 
he could hardly believe it 
“Before I became a pro- 
fessional", he said, “I was a 
devoted United fan. I used to 
stand at the Stretford End with 
my dad and cheer and sing 
along with thousands of oth- 
ers. 

“1 can still remember the 
first game 1 saw at Old 
Tra fiord. It was the final game 
of the 1967-63 season, when 
United lost against Sunder- 
land and were beaten to the 
title by Manchester City. I was 
only seven then but 1 soon 
cheered up, for I saw United 
win a lot of matches in the 
Seventies. George Best was 
my idol and I still rate him the 
best player Pve ever seen". 

Davenport senior could 
scarcely contain his elation: 
“Tra still up there on cloud 
nine. When fathers take then- 
sons on to the terraces they 
must often dream that one day 
they will see them playing for 
their favourite club. But I 
never dreamt that Peter would 
one day play for Manchester 
United". 

The Davenport move is not 
seen as a panic measure by 
Nottingham Forest Although 


the dubare£1.5 million in the 
red, Maurice Roworth, their 
chairman, said: “I have always 
backed our manager, Brian 
Clough, in the past and will go 
on doing so; but the unani- 
mous decision to sell Daven- 
port was taken with the best 
interest of the club m mind." 

While Ron Atkinson,the 
Manchester United manager, 
was delighted at obtaining on 
a five-year contract a player be 
has trailed for some time, and 
whom he sees as an ideal 
replacement for Mark Hughes, 
the Welsh international, who 
is expected to join Barcelona 
in the summer, Gough was 
annoyed. 

"Davenport was the one 
player I really wanted to keep 
here,” he said. "At- the start of 
the season, when he signed a 
new contract, I saw him as 
being a significant part of our 
future. He came here costing 
us nothing and developed into 
an international centre for- 
ward — and now we have bad 
to sell him. Understandably, I 
feel very upset about it." 

But Roworth, while sharing 
Clough's disappointment, 
pointed out the realities of 
Forest's position, saying: “We 
have to face the fact that 
football is a very difficult 
game to be in these days." The 
deal will halve the dub's 
debts. 

Davenport, wtao will be 25 
in a fortnight, was bora at 
Birkenhead on Merseyside but 
failed to make the grade with 
Everton. He scored 56 goals in 
little more than 100 League 
games for the first division 
side. 

This latest purchase will 
take Atkinson's spending past 
£7 million. Davenport could 
team up with Terry Gibson, a 



Unreluctant debutant Davenport will step from hallowed terrace to even more hallowed turf 


recent signing, to give United 
a new £1 million-plus spear- 
head at Loftus Road 
Atkinson, his patience ex- 
hausted by this year’s poor 
finishing by Stapleton and 
Hughes, swooped within 24 
hours of Sunday's FA Cup 
exit. The United manager has 
spent lavishly and has bad 
plenty of failures in his search 
for the perfect strike force. 
"This club has been looking 
for a natural goal scorer for a 
long time," be said "Daven- 
port used to be a United fan 
standing at the Stretford End 
Now be gets the chance to 
become the king. He certainly. 


has the ability. AO 1 am asking 
him to do is to play as well for 
us as he did against us." 

Davenport, whose signing 
could not be completed in 
time to allow him to accompa- 
ny United on their mid-season 
break to Israel, knows he has a 
lot to live up to. "I’ve just got 
to do my best and hopefully 
the goals will come”, Ik said 


Davenport admitted that 
Gough had been reluctant to 
part with him; but with Forest 
more than £1 million in debt 
the departure form his Not- 
tingham digs was inevitable. 
John Gidman could move 


from United to his former 
club, Aston Villa. Aged 32, he 
left Villa for Everton in Octo- 
ber 1 979 and signed for Unit- 
ed in July 1981. He injured a 
knee ligament last mouth, 
which allowed Mike Duxbury 
back into the team. Despite 
being fully fit again, Gidman’s 
chances appear to be limited 
with Johnny Sivebaek also 
challenging. 

Derek Brazil, aged 17, a 
Republic of Ireland youth 
international centre haft has 
been signed by United from 
the Rivermount club. He has 
been given a four-year con- 
tract 


Santana picks three new caps Worried Lincoln 


Never in the past 30 years 
have Brazil and West Germany, 
who between then have won five 
of the 12 World Cop com- 
petitions, been m such a state of 
(lax a mere two and 6 half 
months before the start of the 
finals. Tele Santana and Franz 
Beckenbaner. the respective 
managers, were yesterday trying 
to cast an optimistic view on a 
1 scenario which for each of them 
I is predominantly shades of grey. 

With Brazilian national foot- 
ball tom apart by 
decline and domestic ejections 
within the federation which do 
not withstand moral scrutiny, 
tonight's match against West 
Germany here is. remarkably, 
their first fixture for one and a 
half years, apart from foar less 
than convincing qualifying ties 
against Bolivia and Paraguay. 
Yet such is Santana’s unwav- 
ering faith in his countrymen's 
ability to play the beautiful 
game, come what may, that both 
be and Fafcao, one of his many 
veterans, are adamant that they 
can once more turn water into 
wine between now and the big 
kidtoff. 

Bobby Robson has been trying 
to piece England together for 
four years. Santana, whether or 
not oat of bravado and sheer 
necessity, is saying 10 weeks 
should be enough, Falcao 
agrees. And as the most engag- 
ing of international squads 


From David Miller, Frankfort 
cheerfully charmed their 
friends, and girlfriends, with 
those thick Portuguese vowels in 
the lobby of their skyscraper 
hotel yesterday, it was difficult 
to argue. 

However, four of Untight's 
team are over 30: Cartos, Oscar, 
Fakao, Socrates. Another four 
over 30, Jmhr, Edmho, Cerezo 
and Dircea, are playing in Italy. 
Those eight could not, phys- 
ically, su rvive in Mexico to- 
gether. Yet only Zico, now with 
Flanwngo, Is considered a 
definite non-starter through 
chronic injury for the first round 
with Spain, Northern Ireland 
and Algeria. Santana is indulg- 
ing in the long time Brazilian 
gamble of relying on experience. 
The risks were well exposed In 
1966, and these players have 
already squariered one chance, 
in 1982. 

As a concession to mew faces, 
Santana takes an equal gamble 
with three first caps; Dida, the 
left hack of the national cham- 
pions, Coritiba, and Muller and 
Saissey in an all Sao Paolo 
attack. There is said to be a 
potential tramp in the partner- 
ship of Muller and the 20-year- 
old Silas, who is not playing 
tonight, which is likened by 
those with memories to Conr- 
inbo and Me with Santos 25 
years ago. It was missed chances 
which failed Brazil four years 
*80. 


The whole could stifi be the 
moot oofourful bauble among the 


24 finalists, or it could be an 
embarrassing catastrophe. We 
should get same better idea 
tonight At least Santana has a 
march in Budapest on Sunday 
and then six more at home 
before he leaves for Goada- 

fajanu 

"This is slightly too strong a 
match far onr first outing, but we 
never fear anyone" Santana 
says. “We p&jed England, 
France and Germany immedi- 
ately before the finals four years 
ago. I don't agree that onr first 
round draw is weak, Spain are 
now a much better team, Ireland 
are typically British and Algeria 
play foe way we do". Falcao 
gives a utile. “The way Brazil 
play makes It easier to put a 
team together quickly”. 

Beckenbauer, with only one 
victory and four defeats in 
Ger ma ny’s last seven matches is 
keeping the door open for

Lincoln City could be out of 
business before the start of next 
season. The third division dub 
have had three sections of their 
Sincil Bank ground condemned 
by a Government safety comm- 
ittee and spectators will be 
banned from those areas after 
June I. 

The dub must find £400,000 
to build at least one new stand 
before the beginning of next 
season. John Reames, the Lin- 
coln chairman, said:"Our 
supporters have to convince us 
that they really want a football 
dub. There is no kidology 
involved. If the people don t 
rally around, Lincoln win go 
under." 

The club will bold a public 
meeting within the next three 
weeks and Reames added: "If 
we get a good turnout at that 
meeting and find enough people 
prepared to pledge support as 
well as cash, we will build a 
stand. If we don't it’s the end for 
Lincoln.” 

• Debt-ridden Bangor City 
could receive a grant of up to 
£1 1 ,000 from UEFA to help pay 
for ground improvements un- 
dertaken at Farrar Road during 
their European Cup Winners' 
Cup campaign earlier this sea- 
son. 

Bangor, who play in the 
Multipart League, arereported 


to be £90.000 in debt. They say 
that work carried oul before 
their second round home tie 
against Atletico Madrid cost 
more than £30,000.Bangor sur- 
vived a winding-up petition in 
the High Court on Monday, 
brought by trade creditors Nor- 
ton Wright, who are owed 
£3,714, because legal documents 
were not in order. Tbe Customs 
and Excise, owed £680, were 
given permission to be sub- 
stituted on tbe petitition to be 
presented to the court at a future 
date. 


• Aldershot have signed Bobby 
Barnes, a winger from West 
Ham, for £15,000. Barnes 
played more than 50 first-team 
games for West Ham and bad a 


period at Scunthorpe United on 
loan 


late last year. 

• Grimsby Town have put eight 
players on the transfer-list in an 
effort to raise money to go into 
the transfer market as 
buyers. Top names on the list are 
Jimmy Gilligan. a forward, who. 
at £100,000, was briefly the 
second division club's record 
signing from Watford in the 
summer, winger Tony Ford, 
player-of-the-year for the past 
two seasons, and acting captain 
Phil Bonnyraan, an £80,000 
signing from Chesterfield four 
years ago.

The Wales forward. Mark 
Hughes, will miss both of next 
season's European champion- 
ship qualifying games against 
Finland. However, this does not 
particularly worry his manager. 
Mike England. 

Finland are rated by far the 
easiest opposition in group six 
and they are scheduled to play 
Wales in the first two matches of 
the qualifying competition. The 
Manchester United player, hav- 
ing served his suspension 
against them, will therefore be 
available for the more difficult 
games against Denmark and 
Czechoslovakia. 

Hughes — who w*ll probably 
be playing in Spain next season 
— was originally banned for 
three games after his sending off 
in a F.urooean under-2! 


in a European under- 
championship tie against Yugo- 
slavia in December 1983. The 
ban was recently reduced on 
appeal. 

England plans the son of 
campaign which sow Wales 
come close to reaching the 1 982 
World Cup finals they dropped 
only one point from their first 
five qualifying games, but then 

lost out to Czechoslovakia on 

goal difference after raking only 
one point from their last three 
matches. 

England's contract expires in 
the summer and he has been 
offered the chance to stay on in a< 
part-iime capacity. "1 have been 
given the contract, but I still 
have to discuss it." he said.

Graham Turner, the Aston 
Villa manager, believes his trou- 
bled side will get things right 
tonight to earn a place at 
Wembley in the Milk Cup final. 
Turner, whose resignation was 
called for by supporters after the 
4-1 home defeat by Arsenal on- 
Saturday. expects to choose 
from a full-strength squad for 
the semi-final second leg at 
Oxford. 

He has also put off all possible 
transfer deals to boost Villa's 
relegation fight until the Milk 
Cup outcome has been decided. 
Turner said-*"! don't have to 
remind the players just how 
important (he game is. es- 
pecially after Saturday. We 
could temporarily put all our 
problems in the League behind 
us by winning at Oxford. 

“The players realize they 
failed badly on Saturday and are 
now determined to make 
amends. 1 think everybody will 
see a new drive in the side when 
they go out to face Oxford," 
Turner said . 

Defender Paul Elliott trained 
yesterday after going down with 
a stomach bug and will be fit. 
The young Australian full back. 
Tony Dorigo. who has missed 
the last two games, including 
last week's first leg. is also ready 
fora recall after recovering from 
a hamstring strain. 

Turner also has to decide 
whether to bring in transfer- 
seeking Gary Williams, who is 
fit again after a groin strain. 

Maurice Evans, the Oxford 
United manager, has an- 
nounced an unchanged side. 
The clubs drew 2-2 in the first 
leg at Villa Park and Evans 
promiscd.’Thc players know 
what is at stake and there will be 
no complacency. We will win if 
we play to our capabilities." 

Evans again prefers the trans- 
fer-listed Welsh international 
Jeremy Charles, to his record 
signing. Dave Leworthy, up 
front alongside John Aldridge, 
whose two goals in the first ieg 
look his tally, this season to 23. 

Charles said:"! have been to 
Wembley, but only as a sub- 
stitute for Wales in the home 
championships.lt is every 
player's dream to play there. I 
would also love to face Queen's 


Park Rangers, my previous club, 
' lsh mu 


Mexico plan 


hopes rise 
in Scotland 


and fellow Welsh international. 
Robbie James, who spent seven 
years with me at Swansea City." 

The Football Association 
have settled a dispute between 
Luton and Everton over the 
venue of their third game if 
tonight's FA Cup quarter-final 
replay at Goodison Park is 
drawn. 

Everton refused to decide on 
the toss of a coin because they 
did not want to play on Luton's 
synthetic pitch and suggested 
Villa Park, where they beat 
Luton 2-1 in last year's semi- 
final. Luton refused and asked 
instead for Leicester but 
Everton turned that down. The 
FA then ruled that if another 
replay was needed, it would be 
at St Andrews, Birmingham on 
Tuesday. 

Andy King, a player at 
Everton for four years, has lost 
his chance of returning to 
Goodison Park with Luton. He 
was ready to play despite break- 
ing his nose on Saturday, but the 
Luton manager. David Pleat, 
said that King had also received 
severe concussion and was being 
left out on medical advice. 

The Sheffield Wednesday 
manager, Howard Wilkinson, is 
not an excitable diameter, but 
even he may fed like bursting a 
blood vessel if his team fad to 
crack their “quarter-final jinx" 
in the FA Cup sixth round tie 
with West Ham at Hillsborough 
tonighL 

Since Wilkinson took charge 
of the Yorkshire club in June, 
1983. Wednesday have played 
in seven quarter-final matches 
in either the Milk or FA Cups 
and have yet to get to a semi’ 
final 

Wilkinson's big problem is 
having a fatly fit team. Tbe 
defenders Mcl Sterland (braised 
ankle), Peter Shirtliff (braised 
thigh). Mark Smith (braised 
footl and forward Garry 
Thompson (calf strain) will all 
have fitness tests before Wil- 
kinson selects his side. 

The West Ham manager. 
John Lyall. has no such worries. 
He expects to field the same 
team that beat Manchester 
United 2-0 on Sunday. 


DusseMorf (AP) — The two 
West German television net- 
works. ARD and ZDF, said 
yesterday that they plan to 
broadcast 39 games live from 
this summer's World Cup 
finals in Mexico. 

In addition to the live 
games, the networks plan to 
show recorded highlights of 
the other 13 games in the 
competition, as well as addi- 
tional special programmes. 
They also intend to schedule 
breakfast-time programmes 
that will cover the previous 
day’s play, as well as regular 
afternoon broadcasts. 


Scottish League officials will 
reopen negotiations today to 
restore football to televisura. 
Approval will be granted as long 
as the 38 league dubs accept the 
new deal for Scottish football at 
their special general meeting 
today. 

The arrangement set up by the 
nine premier division rebels and 
the Scottish League manage- 
ment committee at the weekend 
looks as if it will be accepted. 
The league secretary, Jim Fairy, 
will then talk to BBC and 
Scottish television 


Finns change 


In total. West Germans will 
be able to watch 97 hours of 
football by satellite from Mex- 
ico. The broadcasts will start 
with the opening match be- 
tween the defending champi- 
on. Italy, and Bulgaria on May 
31; they will end with the final 
in Mexico City on June 29. 
The games which are to be 
covered live are scheduled to 
kick oft: at noon or midnight 
West German time.

Including radio broadcasts, 
the total cost of World Cup 
coverage for ARD and ZDF is 
estimated at 14 million marks 
(about £4.2- million). Each 
commentator’s seat will cost 
dose to £3,000 a game. Ac- 
cording to ARD's World Cup 
co-ordinator this will make 
the Mexico finals "100 per 
cent more expensive titan the 
1982 World Cup in Spain and 
aboul 25 per cent more expen- 
sive titan the 1984 Los Angeles 
Olympic Games." 

ARD is sending 30 journal- 
ists and 25 assistants to Mexi- 
co; ZDF is sending 21 
reporters and 23 technical 
personnel Both networks will 
be broadcasting from the tele- 
vision press centre in Mexico

Helsinki (Reuter) — The Finn- 
ish champions, Kuusysi Lahti, 
have transferred the second 
of their European Cup quarter- 
final against Sleaua Bucharest, 
of Romania, to the Olympic 
Stadium,- Helsinki. Kuusysi'S 
average attendance for home 
matches at their compact sta- 
dium in Lahti is 1,000. but the 
move to the capital, about 60 
miles away, could attract a 
crowd of around 15,000. 

In last week's first leg, the 
Finns achcived a remarkable 
Hess draw in Bucharest. An 
lympic Stadium official said 
the pitch had been cleared of 
snow and the playing surface 
was m very good condition for 
the second leg which will be 
played on March 19.

anxious, living from day to d tty, 
but it seemed to be a blessing in 
disguise. After the accident I 
looked at the game differently. I 
now work a lot on my fitness 
and concentrate on shots and 
strategy. I think I prepare myself 
much better as the years go on. 
That's the key." 

The dedication paid off in 
Paris, where Norman, the world 
no. 2, dropped only one game 
throughout the tournament and 
clinched the championship with 
an overpowering 9-3, 9-L 9-5 
victory over compatriot Stuart 
Davenport. 

Norman’s perseverance, a 
strong feature on court as well as 
off Iras been rewarded with a 
steady climb up the rankings 
after a period of inertia. He said: 
“I couldn't get past seven be- 
fore, even though I worked very 
hard. I've slowed down a tittle 
since then, but preparation is 
the name of the game. It’s not so 
much physically — I always was 
fit — but mentally 1 never get 
stale. Since June last year I’ve 
played 16 tournaments and lost 
only to Jahangir Khan." 

Jahangir, unbeaten for nearly 
five years, remains the uhimale 
challenge. His last defeat came 
at the hands of the Australian. 
Geoff Hunt, in the 1981 British 
Open. His rivals slipped out of 
his shadow in Paris, however, 
after the Pakistani decided not 
to defend the title he had won 
four years in a row, but chose 
instead to play in a more 
lucrative tournament in To- 
ronto. 


OLYMPIC GAMES 


N Korea 


repeats 

demand 


Tokyo (AP) — Kim D Sung, 
the President of North Korea, 
renewed his country’s demand 
to be joint hosts of the 1988 
Olympic Games, the North 
Korean news agency reported 
yesterday. The Games arete be 
held in Seoul, South Korea. 

Speaking in Pyongyang ax a 
rally to welcome Fidel Castro, 
the Cuban premier, Kim said: 
“Comrade ridel Castro 1ms 
consistently asserted that tbe 
24th Olympic Games should be 
held under the joint sponsorship 
of the North and the South of 
Korea.” 

Castro arrived in the North 
Korean capital on Saturday on 
his first official visit to North 
Korea after attending the 27th 
congress of the Soviet Com- 
munist Party in Moscow. North 
Korea has threatened to lead an 
eastern-bloc boycott of the 
Olympics, which were awarded 
to the South Korean capital five 
years ago, unless Pyongyang was 
allowed an equal share in foe 
Games. Tbe International 
Olympic Committee (IOC) and 
South Korea maintain that the 
North Korean demand to split 
the 1988 Gaines would violate 
the Olympic charter and thus is 
unacceptable. The IOC and 
South Korean sports officials, 
however, have suggested a pos- 
sible compromise, allowing 
North Korea to stage some 
minor or preliminary events 


and to organize pan of the 
cultural festival.

than a half share in the Games. 
A third meeting is scheduled to 
be held in Lausanne in June. 

So far, foe Soviet Union, 
China, Cuba, Libya and Roma- 
nia have expressed support for 
the North Korean position. 
China, however, has not said 
whether it would join Pyong- 
yang in a boycott. China has 
been North Korea's ally since 
the 1 945 partition of Korea and 
the Korean War. Peking has no 
diplomatic ties with South Ko- 
rea but has indicated that tbe 
country will attend the Seoul

Human blockade 


brings giant 
slalom to a halt 


South Lake Tahoe, Galifoniia 
— World Cup skiing is paying its 
annual March visit to North 
America, and foe trouble that 
has d og ged the circuit since 
December is still tagging hlong. 
On Sunday at Aspen, Colorado, 
about 50 of tbe world's leading 
men skiers refused to race in a 
gronf ebimhig that the 

course had been inadequately 
prepared. They formed a human 

blockade just below the starting 
gate and said they would not 
race. 

The same racers woe sched- 
uled to compete yesterday in a 
slalom at Heavenly Valley here. 
The course late on Monday had 
seemed to be a de qua t e l y pre- 
pared. The Only problem was a 
series of snowstorms that had 
been moving through the Tahoe 
Basra since Friday. 

The weather has been one of 
the main problems all winter for 
the World Cup as ft travelled 
from one European resort to 
another, first encountering a 
lack of snow, then too much. 
Races were postponed, then 
sometimes cancelled, although 
it was not until Aspen that the 
skiers took mattera into their 
own hands. ■ 

The problems actually began 
on Saturday, before the down- 
hill. The technical delegate from 
foe International Ski Federa- 
tion, a Canadian, declared that 
the commercial logos on most of 
the competitors’ helmets were 
bigger than foe rales permitted. 
He was overruled by Serge Lang, 


president of dm World Cup 
committee, an unprecedented 
occurrence. 

They held dm race,-but after- 
wards, the top three finishers — 
theSwiss, ftjter Mueller, and foe 
Austrians, Peter Wzrrisbeiger 
and Leonhard Stock - refused 
to wear tbeir racing bibs for tbe 
obligatory victory pictuiMafe- 
mg. The bibs afl carried tbe 
name of the event's sponsor, 
Subaru. The skiers said that they 
were individually sponsored by 
other cansakm, but it was 
reported that they offered to put 
their bibs back on if Subaru 

would pay them cadi $5,000.- 

Lang. who the night before 
was the redpiem of the 1986 
AT&T award as siding’s man -of 
the year, again idd the skiers. to 
ignore the Aspra organizers and 
pose without foe bibs. 

That brought everyone to 
Sunday and the giant slalom, 
after an overnight rainstorm 

had softened the course. It was 
so soft that foe first lew starters 
would have an advantage in 
coming down before. foe rats 
formed. The skiers rebelled after 
tbe race jury voted, 3-2. to 
p ro ceed with the giant slalom, 
which began with two fore- 
runners crashing m succession 
because of poor visibility. 

Harald Schoenhaaf. Alpine 
director of the United States 
skiing team said: “It's true, the 
course was not in shape to have 
a fair race, but I don't like (he 
way tbe skiers went about 
getting ft slopped.”

Cup delay 
will suit 
Southgate 

By Sydney Friskin 


WRAC defend 
inter-services 
championship 

By Joyce Whitehead 


The competitions committee 
of foe Hockey Association will 
meet in London today to decide 
the case of Southgate who have 
asked for a postponement of 
their fourth round Hockey 
Association Cup match against 
Wimbledon due to be played on 
March 16. 

Seven of Southgate's players 
will be away that day on a 
training weekend with the Great 
Britain squad and they do not 
want to risk fielding a weakened 
team against a resurgent Wimb- 
ledon side. Should Southgate 
win the cup they will have a 
chance of playing in foe Euro- 
pean dub championship next 
season. 

Six fourth round cup matches 
remain to be played and the' 
winners will join Wehon and 
Pickwick to make up tire last 
eight. As matters stand, the 
quarter-finals are due to be 
played on March 23. the semi- 
finals on April 19 and the final 
on April 20. so there is room for 
a little flexibility despite the 
intervention of foe Champions' 
Trophy tournament in Karachi 
(April 4 to 11) where Great 
Britain will be playing. 


The Army play the Royal Air 
Force in foe opening match of 
the women's inter-services 
championship at tbe united 
Services Ground. Portsmouth 
today (2.30). The WRAC are 
defending the tide they won last 
year for only the second tune. 


Tomorrow the Rojjra^Navy 


take on the losers of the first

with dazzling 



By Midnel Seely 


On an t afternoon when the

sweptjhe board by winning 
the fiisi five races, SeeYou

Sprinting dear my the final

Gaye Bnef, the 1983 winner, 
by seven lengths, exactly the 
same margin as last year. Now 
top quoted at 3-1 to become 
the first triple champion since 
Persian War, Nicky 
Henderson's brilliant six-year- 
ojd has the Templegate Hgr- 
«e at Liverpool as his next 
objective. 

“He’s a much better horse 
than last year,” Steve Smith 
codes, ‘ 
said: “I 

mature. And, what*s more, 
heU be a fitter horse next 
out” 

The picture changed dra- 
matically after the field

half behind Gaye Brief, fbl- . .. 

towed by Prideaux Boy, Tom gfe 
Sharp and Bonalma. 

B ®°th Mercy Rirodl and

and jockey of the runner-up, 
woe delighted with Gaye 
Briefs performance. “He ran a 
race,” Scudamore said, 
out from two out - 1 never 
really thought we were going 
to beat See You Then.” 

Once again Henderson has 
excelled himself in his han- 
dling of the winner, All season

has been training See Yon 
Then with only one target in 
view and how handsomely did 
See Yon Then prove his point 
and underline the trainer’s 
understanding and patience.

never been to the seaside.” AD 
the favourite’s preliminary 
work had of necessity been 
conducted on aU-wealber sur- 
faces. 

“The only time we got onto 
the grass at all was last

“And then it was only to

the expression of astonish- 
ment on Henderson’s face 
after the first leg of his double, 
ft would obviously have taken 
a bold man to have risked the

after that epic tfod wfth the ill- 
fated Noddy’s Ryde, BobsiiW 
was greatly fancied to deprive 
Badswortk Boy of the two- 
miter’s crown 12 months ago, 
but be made an uncharacteristic 
mistake at the third last fence 
and fell. At the doe, be was 
going ominously wdL and I 
remain convi nc ed that he would 
have won had he stood np. 

This time the big (wo enter the 
fray again oa very different 
preparations. Whereas my 
selection is tfcoaght to be J00 per 
cent following successive vic- 
tories at Down Soya! and Naas 
in Ireland, Badsworth Boy has 
not been sees in public since his 
history-making third win 12 
months ago. In the curam- 
sfances, I think that another 
victory is expecting too rnnch 
even of a trainer as skilled as 
Monica Dickinson. 

tf the Irish handicapper is 
right, fiobstine should take care 
of their other challenger Bock 
House, even though be was 
beaten about 10 lengths hy him 
at Navan in November. That 
was Bobsloc's first race of the 
season whereas Buck House bad 
been out before. Also he was 
giving Back House 101b. Today 
they meet at level weights, and I 
find it significant that recently 
Bobsline was set to give 91b to 
Buck Honse in a handicap in 
Ireland. 

When Bock House finished 
second to Boreea Prince in the 
Arkle last year. Very Promising 
was a length and a half behind in 
third place. In the meantime. 
Very Promising has improved a 
bit bat not esoagh ia my opinion 
to trouble BobsUne now. 

Fa Ike Welwyn's bones have 
been quick to strike form since 
racing resinned a week ago after 
the stoppage last like they were 
after that much longer freeze-op 
in 1963 when he was leading

high that TEN PLUS will win 
the San Alliance Novices’ Hur- 
dle — and with every justifica- 
tion. 

Those who race regularly at 
Cheltenham have already seen 
him in sparkling form twice this 
season, initially in December, 
when he won a race over today’s 
course and distance in a mud) 
foster time than the one that 
Midnight Count clocked on the 
same afternoon. Only sixth in 
today's race 12 months ago. Ten 
I^os is considered to be a rnnch 
better horse now. 

Abcriow, Field Conqueror. 
Pike's Peak, and Ibn Majed 
coaid form the nucleus of his 
opposition today, with the easy 
Kempton winner. Aherlow, 

appealing to me as a particularly 

good each-way bet. 

Walwyn is hopeful that Arctic 
Stream will ran well in the Sim 
Alliance Cluse, but it is hard to 
envisage him beating Nick 
Gasefee's BOLANDS CROSS. 
The two have met once already 
this season at Ascot where 
Bolands Cross came off the best 
by 10 lengths. Even on 41b better 
terms, Arctic Stream shook! not 
manage to get his revenge, 
although be must go close. 
Before that. Bolands Cross had 
won both bis other races at 
Kempton easQy and K will take a 
good one to topple him now. 

A more open race than the 
Coral Golden Hurdle Final it 
would be hard to imagine. 
Having trained Willie 
Worn pic ins to win this race three 
times in succession, no one has a 
better grasp of the situation than 
Mrs “Boy” PQkingfon. So 1 give 
her useful mare, the aptly- 
named CORAL DELIGHT, a 
good chance of following ia 
Willie Wompkins’s footsteps 
after commendable perfor- 
mances at Warwick and Ascot 
before the freeze-up. At War- 
wick, she stayed ou gamely to 
beat Ribobetle. Gold Tycoon, 
Shepherd's Hymn, and The 
Tariahs, 

The Man Himself, Mick's 
Star, and Motivator roold turn 
oat to be more troablesome than 
the ante-post favourite. Aban- 
doned Warrior. 

EQUESTRIANISM 

Green let 
down by 
her horse 

By Jenny MacArthnr 

Lucinda Green, the world 
ihrec-day event champion, will 
not be defending her title at the 
world championships in 
GawJer. Australia, in May. Her 
horse. Regal Realm. “rweaked”a 
tendon a month ago and Peter 
Scott Dunn, the official team 
ve L said yesterday that the 15- 
year-old horse had noi re- 
sponded to treatment and would 
not be ready in lime to compete. 

Mrs Green said: “It's dis- 
appointing. particularly as Regal 
Realm, being a tough and 
athletic little horse, would have 
been par for the course in 
Australia. But I've had an 
incredible run — you have to 
expect this son of thing with 
horses." She hopes Regal Realm 
will be back in work by next 
spring at the latest 
A pan from being a big set- 
back to Mrs Green, her absence 
will deprive ihc British team of 
their most respected partner- 
ship. 

Fifth victory 
for Felton 

Mike Felton rode his fifth 
winner of the season on Monday 
when Matt Murphy confirmed 
his Tweseldown form in a 
division of the open race at the 
Bicester and Warden HiB point- 
to-point (Brian Beel writes). 

On the same afternoon Lucy 
Crow got off the mark on Smile 
Hill in the PPOA race at the 
South Herefordshire. The ladies 
race here was won by Mercy 
RimeU's ex-Irisb handicapper. 
Three Counties, giving her 
granddaughter. Caroline, her 
second winning ride.

A guide for the j 

-Buying a house has developed into a to borrowers. Tb 
kind of financial blind man’s buff with to shop around I 


many buyers feeling that they have 
reached completion more by kick than 
judgment,” says Tony Stoughtoh-Har- 
ris. chief general manager of the Anglia 
Building Society. 

There are certainly many people who 
would agree with that assessment of the 
traumatic business of house-buying. 

That is his way of introducing 
Anglia's new HomeMaker mortgage 
service, which was launched at the Ideal 
Home Exhibition in an attempt to 
simplify the complicated process and 
explain it It is described as a “step by 
step guide through the housebuying 
jungle" and is designed to give buyere 
more control over their destiny, from 
the time they first consider buying their 
new home to well after they have moved 
in. 

“Our research shows that few people 
feel they have control over - their 
purchase, which is really disconcerting 
when you think that it is the largest - 
transaction most of us are ever likely to 
maker says Mr Sto ughto n-Hsris. - 

The HomeMaker gives a comprehen- 
sive file of information and guidance on 
every step in the hoasebuymg process, 
and also deals with mortgage-matters . 
and insurance. 

In addition, the guide gives advice on 
home improvements and further ad- 
vances, energy conservation, decorating 
and room planning. , _ . 

Anglia is supporting its service with a 
new mortgage pledge, which provides a 
three month guarantee of an agreed Joan 


to b ur row ers. This enables the borrower 
to shop around for & property knowing 
that there is money avambte to proceed 
with the purchase, arid is a valuable 
reassurance. •,/. 

The guide arid the pledge are not 
simply a philanthropic gesture — they 
are the latest example of the efforts 
being' made by everybody in the 
property business to keep up with the 
competition now that estate agency and 
conveyancing air being opened up. 

“With increasing competition in the 
home loan . market. . borrowers are 
expecting farmorcfrom their building 
society than just a cheque for their 
mort^ge.What they want above all else 
is impartial advice which points them in 
the right direction,” Mr Stoughton- 
Harris explains. The guide is available 
to Angfe bo rro w ers when their formal 
application has been accepted 

Solicitors too are concerned about 
their share of the market as conveyanc- 
ers, and many have already reduced 
their feesin order to compete. Anthony 
Holden .Crofts rind Co is a fairly new 
firm of West London solicitors which 
concentrates on conveyancing, and it 
has produced a booklet aiming to help . 
homeowners through the legal pitfalls of 
buying and selling property. 

The guide includes a table feu 
calculating the total cost of the transac- 
tion, and is available from the firm's 
offices in Ealing, Brentford and Houns- 
low.

Beware carrying out home improve- 
ments — for they may not turn out to 
improve the property and many are 
unlikely., to improve the value of the 
house by the cost of the work uiKfetak- 
en. _ • 

This is a simple thesis, but it is 
necessary to emphasize it because a lot 
of people buy houses with that 
and are then disappointed,: if not angry, 
when they find the work was largely in ' 
vain. ' 

t It is tnie at aO levels of the market, al- 
though those at the top rad who spend 
Luge capital sums on grandiose schemes - 
to suit their ambitions and pers onali ty 
can lose the most. 

Talking about country houses, Antho- 
ny Wardell of Knight Frank and Rutley 
says he has bn a number of occasions 
been brought in to assess the likely price 
that would be achieved for a house that 
has recently had substantial sums spent 
on It “To the bitter disappointment of 
the owners I have had to inform them 
that the price which themarketwould 
be prep are d to pay. for the property 
would not cover the additional expense 
which had recently been injected into 
the property.” . 

Often owners carry out such improve- 
ments on thebasis that the home will be 
theirs for some years, and that they have 
no thoughts of selling within the near 
future. “However, because of the mobil- 
ity of those with careers in the CSty or in 
the high levels of industry and afen 

A nuisance for the 
potential buyer 

because of family reasons, a sale may 
ofteh have to late place much sooner 
than expected,” be explains. 

The result can be that their pride and 
joy can become a do wnr i ght nuisance— 
for it may put potential buyers ofiflf they 
do not happen to share the vendor's 
taste, apart from felling to enhance the 
value of the property by the amount it 
cost. 

In advice to owners, Mr Warden says 
they should ask whether they are 
a malting the property. too expensive for. 
its location and style: h is all very weU to 
carry out expensive improvements to a 
house but if it is in a shun very few peo- 
ple would be fikdy to take it on*

Property Correspondent 


however luxurious it was inside. Sub- 
stantial i m prove m ents may well take 
the property into a different price 
bracket — where location again is of the 
greatest importance. 

There are, of course, some improve- 
ments which will sustain or enhance the 
property’s value. Mr Warden says that 
those improvements that are of general 
use, ' such as improvements to the 
structure and to the services, are usually 
reflected in theprice that will eventually 
be achieved. “The major items which 
can cause problems are inappropriate 
extensions, sports complexes thpt in- 
clude swimming pod, gym and snooker 
rooms, and expensive landscaping.” 

He gives an example of a house close 
to the M25 in Sumy which without 
improvements would have achieved a 
figure somewhere between £280,000 
and £300,000. A luxury swimming pod 
complex had been added, including a 
heated pool, Jacuzzi and sauna, costing 
around £100,000: Yet the market would 
probably only stand a price of about 
£330,000 for the property. The house 
had no staff accommodation, probably 
necessary at that price, and had limited 
land because the complex had taken up 
a great deal of the garden. 

Another house he saw recently had a 
similar complex,: while the main house 
had not been touched, leaving it with 
dared bathrooms and an old-fashioned 
Ititchen and bofler. A third example was 
a house near Brighton, at the top end of 
the maket, winch was built to the 
design and specification of the owner 
with loamy fittings and to a very 
individual styte . ■ 


The trouble was that the house was 
not within easy access to London or the 
airports, although its appeal would 
normally be from the international 
market, and the layout of the bouse was 
- such that it was fine for two people but 
not suitable for a typical family. 

Sometimes the investment in a luxury 
item pays off A house in Cheyne 
Gardens, Chelsea, came on the market 
recently at £825,000 through Aylesford 
and Co, and Andrew Langton from the 
firm believes that it was the kitchen, 
“the most charming of any property for 
sale in London at the moment”, as he 
described it with the typical modesty of 
estate agents, which enabled the sale at 
around that price. 

He believes the return for a specific 
luxury items is only possible if it is not 
too individual, which immediately 
limits appeal. But an excellently execut- 
ed restoration and redecoration is 
always recoverable in a property, espe- 
cially if it is in a classic taditional 
English style. 

Nicholas Cooper, director of 
Aylesford’s Kensington office, feels that 
luxury and high quality presentation are 
essential for achieving high prices. 
“About four or five times a year we have 
a client who demands that a swimming 
pool or a ballroom or a shooting range 
or some such luxury item be incorporat- 
ed into the property, but on the whole 
such items do limit appeal" 

life basic rule; according to the agents 

Swimming pools can 
limit the appeal 

Humberts, is: “Do not spend much 
money on a house in a disappointing 
position since the average purchaser 
will rarely pay full value for a house 
unproved beyond its intrinsic worth in 
relation to nearby or comparable 
properties.” 

The other advice which ought to be, 
followed is that while an owner may do 
■what he likes to please himself, he* 
cannot expect it to enthrall a prospec- 
tive buyer. If be wants to do that, he 
most be very careful in the improve- 
ments be makes. 

After all, an outrageous and smnptu-' 
ous swimming pool complex may be fun 
to look at, but difficult to live with.

Grades wtth O-teveis, he calls 
them: as useful as a scratch on 
the film negative. Lindsay 
Anderson, whose documentary 
essay on British cinema win 
be the second *n the series of 
three, is more BFl- orientated 
than Mr Parker, and his head is, 
therefore, more egg-then 
turnip-shaped. 1 hope tus film win 
be as opfnonated as Mr

THE TIMES 


Race to 
free 
Beirut 
hostages 

From Our Correspondent 
Beirut 

In a race against time. Mr 
Razah Raad. the French doc- 
tor turned politician who is 
trying to secure the release of 
the French hostages held by an 
extremist Shia Muslim group 
in Beirut, yesterday made a 
new attempt to contact the 
kidnappers and resume nego- 
tiations. 

The move came after the 
group, the mysterious Islamic 
Jihad organization, produced 
photographs to "prove" it had 
killed M Michel Seurat, one of 
the eight Frenchmen held. 

In a parallel effort. but by 
far more symbolic than realis- 
tic, M Serge Boidevaix. the 
Deputy Secretary-General of 
the French Foreign Ministry, 
met President GemayeL the 
country's Christian head of 
state, to ask him for help. 

Mr Raad. a Lebanese-bom 
heart specialist who is running 
in the French elections for the 
National Assembly on a 
Gaullist ticket next Sunday, 
appears to have more chance 
oi success, if there is any to be 
had. This is his third trip to 
Lebanon and the kidnappers 
have specifically requested his 
presence. 

Mr Raad dropped from 
sight early yesterday morning 
after leaving the seaside 
Summertand Hotel in west 
Beirut, apparently to make 
arrangements to meet the 
kidnappers. He made no com- 
ment as he left the hotel and 
his whereabouts were still 
secret by nightfall. Earlier, 
however, he said that he 
wanted to accomplish his 
mission and return to France 
in lime for the election. 

He arrived in Beirut late on 
Monday night, after the Islam- 
ic Jihad produced three black- 
and-white photographs 
purporting to show M Seurat's 
body and his coffin. 

In a statement delivered to a 
news agency in Beirut, the 
group said the photographs 
were intended to document a 
claim made last Wednesday 
that M Seurat, aged 37. had 
been killed after nearly a year 
of captivity.

GCSE exam will go 
ahead as planned 

By Lucy Hodges, Education Correspondent 


Stretched Army drops

The new GCSE examina- 
tion for pupils aged (6 win go 
ahead. In spite of objections 
from teachers' organizations 
and examination boards, Mr 
Christopher Patten, Minister 
of State for Education and 
Science, said yesterday. 

"There can be no going badt 
and no hanging back." he said 
at Chester, in a speech which 
set oat the objectives of the 
new examination starting in 
1988. There was no question of 
quality being sacrificed. 

The present examination 
system had served to certify 
poor performance in the mid- 
dle and lower grades, Mr 
Patten said. The GCSE, which 
merges O level and the Certifi- 
cate of Secondary Education 
(CSE), would show achieve- 
ment in positive ways because

it would not measure children 
against one another but 
against absolute standards. 

The size of the 
Government's teaching train- 
ing programme for the new 
exam was unprecedented, but 
be hinted that ministers were 
prepared to consider sympa- 
thetically requests for more 
financial help. 

All GCSE syllabuses would 
be ready by May, the target 
date, and training courses for 
teachers would run through 
the spring and summer terms. 
Around £10 million had been 
allocated for the introduction 
of the examination, including 
£6 million for supply cover for 
teachers m the present train- 
ing phase, and a farther £2 
million for supply cover in the 
third phase.

The Array's traditional 
summer display and tattoo at 
Aldershot. Hampshire, which 
in the past has drawn crowds 
of up to 300,000, has been 
cancelled this year and may 
have to be abandoned. 

The Ministry of Defence 
said yesterday that plans for 
this year's display had been 
dropped because of other un- 
avoidable commitments. 
Manpower pressures caused 
by worldwide operational and 
training commitments were 
overstretching all Army units. 

Together with the cost of 
mounting the display, the 
decision had been taken to 
cancel what was a desirable 
but unessential pan of the 
Army's programme. 

Aldershot tattoo, and its 
accompanying large-scale stat- 


Hanulton 

ic display, has been held 
annually since 1963 and bien- 
nially since 1978 at the Rush- 
more Arena. Running for 
three days in June, it utilizes 
3,000 men drawn from most 
of the main Army units. 

The ministry said that since 
1984, when the display was 
last held, the Army has had to 
commit an extra 600-strong 
battalion to Northern Ireland 
and is fully stretched in servic- 
ing the Falklands and Rhine 
garrisons. Since the 1981 de- 
fence review, the total number 
of army personnel has fallen 
from 142,000 to 137,000. 

The army equipment exhi- 
bition, a shop window for 
British military hardware 
which normally takes {dace 
alongside the public display, 
will be held as usuaL 


Helicopter 
annoys 
the Duke 

Adelaide —The royal tour of 
Australia was disrupted by aa 
airborne invasion of helicop- 
ters and mosquitoes yesterday 
as the. Duke of Edinburgh 
went for a walk on a wfidfife 
trail (Stephen Taylor writes). 

The presence of a helicopter 
overhead, which belonged to a 
commercial television station, 

dearly annoyed the Duke as 
he set off on a walk through a 
mangrove swamp. He pointed 
at it, gesturing for ft to move. 

After that the Duke, who 
removed his jacket and 
changed into sensible shoes, 
appeared happier. - 
He emerged smiting from 
the walk although those who 
had followed the swamp trail 
had been bitten by mosquitoes. 


“He’s the future Preswfem 
of France, you know”, one of 
the taxi-drivers ai the. Radio- 
Cab Cooperative Lyons 
confided with mixed awe arid 
pride as he watched M Ray- 
mond Bane, once the most 
disliked Prime Minister un- 
der the Fifth- Republic and 
now the most popular politi- 
cal leader in France, chat with 
fellow taxi-drivers over a 
gass of paslis. 

“He doesn’t say any old 
thing, like the others", he 
went on. “He weighs^ his 
words. He tells the truth. He s 
the first economist in France, 
and he's very strong on the 
international frost They re- 
spect him abroad. Quine's 

good, but Bane is better. He's 

mdependenL He's above the 
political parties, so he can say 
what he likes.” 

M Raymond Bane, who 
has always declined to join 
any political party, though be 
s its with the centre-right 
Union poor la Dfemocrane . 
Francaise (UDF), in the Na- 
tional Assembly, is heading 
his own list, called the Union 
des Republican* Uberaux et 
Sociaux, for tiie pariiamenaa- 
ry elections in the Rhrine; 
where be is in direct competi- 
tion with, the Gaullist RPR 
party. ■ 

Despite the recent affiance 
between the two main oppo- 
sition parties, separate fists 
are being fielded in a third of 
the 105 dipartements. While 
united fists are viewed with ‘ 
greater favour; it is accepted 
that separate lists may some- 
times help the two parties lo 
win more votes. But w M 
Bane’s case, it is not appreci- 
ated. 

He has already provoked 
the fury of the leadership of 
both the UDF and the RPR 
by his outspoken and damag- 
ing attacks on what he has 
described as "a form of 
mkrocosmkTOaiitaria&isziL, / 
that is to say a union where 
everyone has to march in 
step”, and by his outright 
refusal to contemplate the 
possibility, of a right-wing 
Government governing effec- 
tively under President 
Mitterrand. 

He is seen as a divider of 
tiie right, a man in pursuit of 
his own yHfeh ambitions. An 


ason vinous pamphlet, pub- 
lished last month by suspect- 
ed right-wing radicals within 
the RFR party , attacked M 
Bane for being “g raded en- 
tirely by his own personal 
interests. He has only one 
objective: to conquer the 
presidency in 1988.”

He know that his reputa-
