An alarming 29 pear cent

rape offences was disclosed 
yesterday in the annual crime 
figures for England and Wales. . 
In London. Metropolitan 


By Peter Evans Home Affairs Correspondent 
Home Secretary, said in a 
statement that new proce- 
dures by. the Metropolitan 
Police had increased the pro- 
portion of rape allegations 
which appeared in the figures. 


Police [igures showed a rise of • Allegations now featured 
about naif in the number of which previously would not 


rapes or attempted rapes, up 
from 365 in 1984 to 570 last 
year. 

However, the Horde- Office 
described the “apparent 
increase” as largely due to 
changes in police recording 
procedures. ... 

The recorded number of 
drug trafficking offences also 
went up by 22 per cent last 
year, as crime generaily con- 
tinued to rise. 

A 7 per cent rise in offences 
of violence against the person 
took the total to 122,000. 

Robbery went up by 10 per 
cent over the 1984 figure, 
which in turn was 13 per cent 
higher than the previous year. 
Offences of fraud and forgery 
were up 7 per cent. . 

There was an 8 percent-rise 
in the recorded offences of 
criminal damage, continuing 
the steady increase over many 
years. Overall there was a 3 
per cent increase in recorded 
crime. 

The most encouraging sta- 
tistic for Government and 
police crime prevention was a 
tall of 4 per' cent in house 
burglaries, compared wiih a 
rise.of 10 per cent in 1984. 

Mr Douglas Hurd, the 


have been counted. 

But the Metropolitan Police 
in its statement yesterday said: 
“In feet, the total cumber of 
-allegations of rape reported to 
the Metropolitan police dur- 
ing 1 985 was about the same 
as in 1984." 

Hence “the rise in recorded 
offences appears dhe largely to 
the effect of the new force 
initiatives rather than a rise in 
the actual number of offences 
reported to the police." 

The figures were not direct- 
ly comparable 'with previous 
years. The new initiatives 
were to obtain greater intelli- 
gence even incases where rape 
victims were unwilling- to 
proceed further with their 
allegations. 

Victims had. been encour- 
aged frilly to substantiate their 
allegations. That had inflated 
the recorded figures ibr those 
offences.- •' 

Changes in the law on. 
anonimity in rape case were 
foreshadowed by Mr Htnd 
who,; describing rape as “a 
uniquely despicable offence". ' 
said the law made it an offence 
to' identify publicly either the 
victim of a rape or the 


defendant once a charge had 
been brought. 

“I strongly support the 
anonimity rule for rape vic- 
tims but 1 am concerned that 
this protection only arises 
once a charge has been made. 
Can it be. ngbl that a victim 
can be exposed to the fufl glare 
of publicity before a charge 
has been brought? I am. there- 
fore considering whether with- 
out harming the public 
interest it would be possible to 
provide for anonimity from 
the outseL” 



He was not convinced that 
the anonimity which the 
present law gave to defendants 
was justifiable. “We are ur- 
gently considering whether to 
propose its abolition," he said. 

The proportion of rape 
cases cleared up by the police 
was 64 per cent in 1985 
compared with 35 per cent for 
notifiable offences as a whole. 

The crime statistics show 
that neighbourhood watch 
schemes as part of a nation- 
wide bid to beat the burglar 
are paying off. 

In London, which has suf- 
fered a plague of burglaries, 
the recorded figures for those 
in dwellings dropped by 1 1 per 
cent in the Metropolitan Po- 
lice district from 109.672 in 
1984 to 97,242 last year. 

In England and Wales there 
was. a 4 per cent decrease in 
burglaries from homes. De- 
scribing the spread of 
neighbourhood watch 
schemes as “remarkable", Mr 
Hurd said it highlighted their 
value as a means of reducing 
domestic burglaries and bring- 
ing police and community 
together. There are now 9,200 
schemes. 

The statistics in total show 
that in 1985 the police record- 
ed about 3.6 million notifiable 
offences, 3 per cent more than 
in 1984 compared with an 8 
per cent increase over the 
previous year.

Thatcher concern over rise 
in ‘barbaric’ rape offences 


ByPh^i Webster S 
. . Potitkal Reporter . 

The Prime ; Minister Spoke 
yesterday of the “uniquely 
barbaric” offence ofrape after 
-the publication of The latest 
crime figures which show a 29 
per cent increase. . 

News of the crime figures 
led to a furious dash with Mr 
Neil Kinnock. the Labour 
leader, in tbe Commons. 

, Mrs Thatcher was said yes- 
terday to be deeply concerned* 
about the rise in crime. The 
latest figures were reported to 
the; Cabinet and later the 
Prime Minister criticized the 
naming of rape victims. 

She told MPs that the whole 
of the media bore a heavy 
responsibility for the way they 
reported crimes of violence. 
Although -the names of vic- 
tims could not be given after 
charges had been made, the 
Prime Minister called on the 
press to observe the “customs 
and conventions" against re- 
porting victims’ names be- 
tween the commission of an 
offence and the charge. 

Meanwhile, Conservative 


Two charged 

Twomen, froth aged 21, were 
last night charged with the 
rape of a wear’s daughter at a 
west London vicarage a week 
ago. A housewife and an 
unemployed man were also 
charged with aggravated bur- 
glary of the vicarage. 

The men charged with rape 
- have not been named in accor- 
dance with the law on report- 
ing rape cases. They have also 
been charged with aggravated 
burglary at die vicarage. 

The other two accused were 
named • as Andrew Stuart 
Byrne, aged 24, of Ca nad a 
Crescent, Acton, and Ji 
line MaryDefelice, 

Limes Walk, Ealing. All four 
will appear at Ealing magis- 
tretes conrt this morning. 

MPs welcomed Mr Douglas 
Hurd’s announcement that he 
was considering a change in 
the law to extend the anonym- 
ity of victims from the com- 
mission of the offence. 

Mr Kinnock, . referring to 
the alarming increase in crime 


of 41 per cent since 1978, 
called on the Government to 
provide more money to local 
authorities to help them 
makes streets and homes saf- 
er. 

There were loud Labour 
protests when Mrs Thatcher 
said that most people would 
and should be in a position to 
provide for crime prevention 
on their own. 

Mr Kinnock said that what 
Mrs Thatcher had said might 
be true in Dulwich, but not on 
housing estates throughout the 
country. 

Last night Mr Gerald Kauf- 
man, the Shadow Home Sec- 
retary, said that under Mrs 
Thatcher, Britain had become 
a more dangerous and violent 
country. 

He said the police could not 
cope with the crime wave over 
which Mrs Thatcher presided. 
“Every minute of Thatcher 
government has brought an 
extra burden for the police. 
Every minute of Thatcher 
government has brought new 
conflict, stress and anxiety for 
all the British people.”

Gorbachov extends 
nuclear test halt 


From Christopher Walker, Moscow 
Gorbachov, tbe to negotiations for a test ban 

US 


Mikhail 
Kremlin leader, yesterday an- 
nounced a second extension to 
the Soviet Union’s unilateral 
moratorium on nuclear tests 
which had been due to expire 
at the end of the month. 

. In response to an _ appeal 
from the leaders of six non- 
aligned nations for a halt to 
US and Soviet testing in the 
run-up to this year’s summit, 
Mr Gorbachov pledged that 
■Moscow would not resume 
testing after the March 31 
deadline until the US carried 
out its next explosion. 

The Soviet leader also 
called for an immediate start 


treaty and offered the 
guarantees on the key issue of 
verification, including on-site 
inspection. 

“We offer to reach agree- 
ment with the American side 
on fhe possibility for observ- 
ers from both sides to visit 
sites where unclear phenome- 
na occur on request and on a 
reciprocal basis to remove 
possible doubts as to whether 
such phenomena are related to 
nuclear explosions," he said. 

■ The new Soviet offer was 
described by European diplo- 
mats as a shrewd public 
relations move by the Krem-

Profits 
soar at 
BT and 
Jaguar 

By Out City Staff 

Investors in two of Britain’s 
leading privatized companies 
had cause for celebration yes- 
terdav as British Telecom- 
munications and Jaguar 
unveiled their latest trading 
results. 

British Telecom — whose 
1.6 million shareholders must 
soon pay their final 40p 
instalment — announced 
record nine-month profits of 
£1.333 million, an increase of 
25 per cent. But the stock 
market had been expecting an 
even better performance and 
the shares fell 14p to 21 8p. 

The Coventry -based Jaguar 
group, whose car sales are 
booming in the all-important 
American market, saw its 
profits for last year rise by 33 
per cent to £121 million, 
lifting the shares 15p to 47Qp. 

The results from British 
Telecom prompted renewed 
demands from the Telecom 
Users’ Association, the pri- 
vate lobby group, for a cut in 
telephone call charges as soon 
as possible. 

British Telecom said that 
the increase in the growth of 
telephone calls had been lower 
than expected, with a rise of 
only 6 per cent in inland calls 
for the three months to De- 
cember. The year before it had 
benefited from a surge in 
demand caused by public 
interest surrounding the flota- 
tion. 

British Telecom's 
workforce fell by 2.000 in the 
third quarter, making a loss of 
3.000 in total for the nine- 
months. Details, page 17

that she is being illegally

Mr Patrick McEntee, senior

an was in illegal custody 
because the district judge had 
refused to bear evidence mi 
whether she should be given 
bail. 

The woman was detained by 
police in TaUaght, South Dub- 
lin, on Wednesday night

Rank loses court 
battle over bid 


By Our City Staff 


The Rank Organisation's 
£740 million takeover bid for 
the Granada leisure group 
hung in the balance yesterday 
after it lost a crucial High 
Court legal battle. 

Rank had challenged the 
right of the Independent 
Broadcasting Authority to 
block the bid, but the 
authority's anion was upheld 
by Mr Justice Mann. The 
result was welcomed by 
Granada's chairman, Mr Alex 
Bernstein, whose board had 
bitterly opposed the bid. 

Rank’s lawyers said they 
would appeal and the compa- 
ny said it had no plans to 
abandon the bid. In the stock- 
market Granada's share price 
fell Sp to 272p. indicating 
dealers' feelings that the bid 
must now be in serious doubt 

Rank had accused the 1BA 
of aning unlawfully by impos- 
ing the veto and of refusing to 
give it a hearing before block- 
ing its bid for Granada, whose 
subsidiary owns the I TV fran- 
chise in the North-west 

Mr Justice Mann ruled that 
he had no power to quash the 


veto because, he said, the 1BA 
had not been exercising its 
public law functions when it 
made the decision. 

Rank had sought a judicial 
review of the 1BA action but 
the judge said that such proce- 
dure could only be used to 
challenge “public law" deci- 
sions and this had not been 
such a decision. 

Mr Justice Mann said that 
the I BA was entitled to stick to 
its policy of preventing 
changes in the “character and 
control'' of independent tele- 
vision companies during the 
period of their franchises. 

Rank's bid for Granada was 
announced on February 18. 
Two days later the Rank 
chairman. Sir Patrick Meaney, 
had a telephone conversation 
with the IBA chairman. Lord 
Thomson, in which, it was 
alleged. Lord Thomson indi- 
cated that Rank would be 
given 3 chance to put its case. 

But on February 25. without 
further consultation with 
Rank, the veto was an- 
nounced. 


Nato vote welcomed 


Madrid — The triumph of 
“yes" votes in the Nato refer- 
endum brought near-euphoria 
on Spain's four stock ex- 
changes yesterday as well as 
congratulations, from other 
Nato countries (Richard Wigg 
writes). 

In Bilbao the rise of 117 
points was said to be a one- 
day record. 

The referendum result al- 
lows the stock exchanges to 
continue on the upward trend. 


based on recent signs of an 
economic improvement, 
which had been halted for fear 
of a negative verdict over 
Nato. 

The final result in 
Wednesday’s referendum was 
52 per cent in favour and 39 
per cent against staying in 
Nato in a 59 per cent national

UK push for home holidays 


By Derek Harris, Industrial Editor 


To meet -increasingly fierce 
competition from foreign holi- 
days, the British home holi- 
days industry Is spending 
around £1 billion on bra 
projects, np by at least a tenth 
compared with 12 months r 
The tourist boards of 
gland. Northern Ireland, Scot- 
land and Wales yesterday 
made their Orel joint appraisal 
of the new drive to improve 
resort and other tourism facili- 
ties and attractions. They also 
launched the United Kingdom 
Holiday Bureau, which will 
mount a campaign to increase 
the popularity of UK holidays. 

Last year is being claimed 
as a record, for domestic 
with niit #»f tm 


Britons taking some break in 
the UK. It Is estimated that 
<me in five Britons now takes 
two or more holidays a year. 
Home holidays still outpace 
foreign ones in popularity. 

The boards plan to spend 
moretfcan £11.5 million this 
year on promotion in the home 
market, up a tenth on last 
year. Promotional spending by 
local authorities and private 
sector interests is also expect- 
ed to rise. 

Bui promotion of UK holt- 
’days still fells well behind that 
devoted to foreign breaks. On 
advertising alone the best 
estimate is that rather more 
than £90 millkm was spent on 
selling them, about four rimes 


that spot promoting UK holi- 
days. 

The boards are optimistic 
for several reasons, including 
the huge investment by the 
industry, more imaginative at- 
tractions and the greater num- 
ber of UK holidays being 
packaged and sold through 
high street travel agents. 

Mr Prys Edwards, the 
Wales Tourist Board chair- 
man,' speaking for the Holiday 
Bureau said: “The UK’s tour- 
ism industry is well, placed to 
compete ... We shall win 
them with our beaches, we 
shall woo them with our 
quality hotels and refurbished 
holiday centres."

Tories accused 
of purging 
chairmen who 
criticize NHS 


By Nicholas Timmins, Social Services Correspondent 


Health authority chairmen 
who have criticized govern- 
ment or regional policy to- 
wards the National Health 
Service are finding themselves 
replaced in the present round 
of appointments and reap- 
pointments to the 190 health 
districts. 

Mr Robin Wood, chairman 
of Leeds Western Health Au- 
thority. who has fiercely criti- 
cized " Yorkshire Regional 
Health Authority's policies, 
has not been reappointed 
despite a letter protesting at 
the decision from more than 
50 consultants at the Leeds 
Royal Infirmary. 

Mr John Bell, chairman of 
Airedale Health Authority, 
and described by colleagues as 
an '‘extremely fair and sound 
chairman", is being replaced 
despite being considered suffi- 
ciently able to have been 
elected chairman of the influ- 
ential Yorkshire chairmen's 
group. 

Dr John Todd, chairman of 
Canterbury and Thanei 
Health Authority, has also 
been replaced after speaking 
out about the financial diffi- 
culties his district was facing. 

Ministers are also known to 
have been extremely reluctant 
to reappoint Mr Nick Cowan, 
chairman of West Lambeth 
Health Authority, after he 
spoke out over' cuts at St 
Thomas's teaching hospital in 
London. 

Mr Cowan, a Conservative 
voter, resigned earlier this 
week over his authority's re- 
fusal to turn over a ward ro 
private patients to help in- 
crease the authority’s income. 


But rumours that he was not 
to be reappointed had led to 
protests to Mr Newman 
Fowler. Secretary of State for 
Social Services, by health 
authority members, consul- 
tants and MPs. 

Mr S3in Dougherty, chair- 
man of Wandsworth Health 
Authority, is expected to be 
replaced by Mr Don 
Cruickshank. managing direc- 
tor of the Virgin records and 
airline group, in an appoint- 
ment expected to be one of the 
more controversial of the 
**new blood" appointments. 

Mr Wood, of Leeds Western 
Health Authority, a Conserva- 
tive voter, described the way 
in which chairman who had 
spoken up for their districts 
were being removed as inept. 

Mr Wood said he had not 
criticized government policy. 
"I have always taken the view 
that we have’ an obligation to 
carry out the policies of the 
government in power." 

But Mr Wood said he bad 
described the Yorkshire 
region’s 10-year strategy as 

-niiivlv i nH hari 


utterly abysmal” and bad 
fiercely criticized the region's 
mechanistic approach to fi- 
nancial policy'. He said that 
had also been heavily criti- 
cized by the independent in- 
quiry’ into the food poisoning 
outbreak at the Stanley Royd 
psychiatric hospital in Wake- 
field. ■ 

The region had had to 
withdraw its strategy docu- 
ment. he said, and his criti- 
cisms of financial policy had 
been shown to "entirely 
justified” by the Stanley Royd 
inquiry. 


Public fear 
on nuclear 
industry 


By Our Parliamentary Staff 


Further developments in 
the nuclear power industry in 
the UK. are in danger of 
becoming inhibited by public 
mistrust. Lord Marshall, 
chairman of the Central Elec- 
tricity Generating Board said 
yesterday. 

He told a House of Lords 
Committee investigating’ Eu- 
ropean Commission plans for 
nuclear power developments 
in Europe that the mistrust 
had been fuelled by incidents 
such as those at Sellafield 

He said: "The degree of 
concern expressed by the me- 
dia in the l^K. has been out of 
proportion to the seriousness 
of the incident, judged against 
any objective assessment of 
danger to health or safety, or 
compared to the media re- 
sponse to comparable inci- 
dents arising in other 
industries.” 

Bui he said public opinion 
appeared to have been influ- 
enced in the same direction. 
Until confidence in the fuel 
processing end of the cycle 
could be restored, this would 
lend to inhibit new nuclear 
developments. 

• Lord Marshall contrasted 
the British aniiude, to that of 
the French public where nu- 
clear power had been widely 
accepted because the French 
saw no reasonable alternative. 

Bui he said the nuclear 
industry could not escape all 
the blame. There had been 
some failure to appreciate that 
management and public rela- 
tions policies must be shaped 
to respond to public percep- 
tion of risk as well as to the 
actual level of risk.

NT ban 
on lead

By Hugh Clayton 
Environment Correspondent 


The National Trust, the

England, decided yesterday to 
protect swans by banning lead 
fishermen's weights from its 
hundreds of miles of river

It is also to support an 
"amnesty" being organized by 
the Wildfowl Trust in the 
coming coarse fishing season 
w hen anglers will be asked to 
hand in their own lead weights 
and any they find. 

Research by the Nature 
Conservancy’ Council has 
shown that lead weights every 
year kill hundreds of Britain's 


swan population of about 
20,000, The birds' habit of 
scooping up Food From river- 
beds means that they swallow 
some of the small lead 
weights. 

Alternatives made from 
metals like tungsten can cost 
much more than lead and 
cannot always be clamped so 
easily onto the lines that they 
are to weigh down. 

The National Trust issues 
hundreds of anglers' permits 
each year and owns some 
highly-prized stretches of wa- 
ter including the Wey naviga- 
tion in Surrey and much of the 
Thames at Rnnnymede. 

The Government has threat- 
ened to ban lead weights next 
year if voluntary curbs do not 
work.

No action 
against 
sex-case 
doctor 


By Michael Hors Dell 

Police have been told by the 
Director of Public Prosecu- 
tions not to prosecute a doctor 
for the rapeofa gjri aged eight, 
it was disclosed yesterday. 

In another case, police are 
to take no. action against a 
vicar for an alleged catalogue 
of sexual assaults against a boy 
because there is no indepen- 
dent evidence against the 
man. - 

A medical examination of 
the girl confirmed that she was 
raped last year and police 
interviewed her assailant for 
more than 12 hours. 

But after the case papers 
were sent to the DPP, it was 
decided the case against the 
doctor should be dropped for 
lack of corroboration. 

Mr Norman St John-Stevas, 
Conservative MP for Chelms- 
ford, who has taken up the 
case, said he expects the 
victim’s mother to press for a 
private prosecution. 

The doctor was not the 
child's GP but was looking 
after her for several days at his 
home. 

It is understood that he 
refused to answer police ques- 
tions. 

The girl suffered ‘‘horrific” 
internal injuries, according to 
the report of the family's GP, 
and continues to suffer from 
psychological damage. 

Police said yesterday that 
the case will be reviewed in the 
fight of any further evidence. 

The General Medical Coun- 
cil refused to confirm or deny 
the case. 

It is unusual for a child 
under the age of 14 to give 
evidence under oath. A court 
may be satisfied that a child's 
evidence is reliable bur gener- 
ally it would have to be 
corroborated by another wit- 
ness. 

The matter of the admissi- 
bility of a child's evidence is to 
be raised in Parliament in 
questions to the Attorney 
General, Sir Michael Havers, 
by Mr Geoffrey Dickens. Con- 
servative MP* 

That comes after an allega- 
tion that a vicar sexually 
assaulted a boy aged 1 1 over 
an 18-month period. 

Police have also decided in 
that case not - to prosecute 
because there is no corrobora- 
tion 

Mr Dickens said 
yesterday:**ln this latest case 
the boy's mother told me that 
her son was regularly and 
seriously sexually assaulted by 
this vicar. The boy was loo 
frightened and ashamed to 
mention it and it came to light 
only because of the injuries he 
sustained.” 

The boy's mother said yes- 
terday that when she tele- 
phoned the vicar he said:‘You 
should not be accusing me. 
You should be forgiving me.'

Power and money in local government 


Lambeth Red Flag to go 


By Cotin Hughes, Local Government Correspondent 


Conservative councillors in 
Lambeth are planning to open 
the books on the Town Hall's 
past four years and tear down 
political posters and publicity 
hoardings when they take 
control for five weeks next 
month. 

Labour members are ex- 
pected to decide against ap- 
pealing against the recent 
High Court decision that they 
should be surcharged and 


disqualified for five years for 
delay in setting a rate last year. 

But they will not announce 
their decision until the 28 days 
allowed for appeal has lapsed. 

This is expected because 
they cannot afford further 
legal costs over a battle that 
few anticipate winning. 

That wUl mean most of the 
Labour group having to move 
out of Lambeth Town Hall on 
April 3. giving the Conserve- 


Plan to pay councillors 
studied by Labour 


By Philip Webster, Political Reporter 


The Labour Party is study- 
ing a plan to pay local council- 
lors rather than give them 
allowances. 

Its cost could nm into 
millions of pounds, but senior 
Labour figures believe that it 
would give an important boost 
to local government and help 
to attract members of groups 
such as women, young people, 
and blacks and Asians who are 
badly represented. 

A working party under the 
chairmanship of Mr John 
Cunningham; Labour's chief 
environment spokesman, who 
favours the principle of paid 
councillors, is expected to 
report iu July. 

It Is considering whether all 
councillors should be paid, or 
whether payment should be 


restricted to those in senior 
posts, such as council chair- 
men and leaders, and commit- 
tee chairmen, many of whom 
already have to work almost 
on a foJJ-titne basis. 

All councillors are entitled 
to receive an attendance allow- 
ance of np to £16 a day ora fi- 
nancial loss allowance of up to 
£24 a day. Those in senior 
posts receive a special respon- 
sibility allowance of up to 
£4370.. 

Labour MPs know of cases 
where councillors have been 
threatened with dismissal 
from their jobs because of the 
amount of time they have to 
devote to their council work. 

There are about 400 coun- 
cils in Britain with about 
25,000 council members. 


lives control until after the 
borough elections on May 9. 

“In that time we will be able 
to make only cosmetic 
changes, but they will be 
gestures of our intent”. Mrs 
Mary Leigh, the Conservative 
group leader, said. 

"Our first action will be to 
remove the Red Flag over the 
Town Hail, and all the plac- 
ards and posters on the clock 
tower and around it. If we 
can't get council officers to do 
it, we will have to hire 
contractors. 

"We will also immediately 
stop all the proposed name 
changes which the Labour 
group have been planning 
recently, such as renaming 
Brockwell Park after an im- 
prisoned South African. 

“The next thing win be to 
expose some of the things 
which have been going on, 
such as the political intimida- 
tion of officers in some depart- 
ments by union 
representatives. In one case 
we have had reports of 
people's offices being occu- 
pied in an attempt to force 
them out of their jobs. 

"dearly that kind of thing 
has gone stop”. . 

Labour in Lambeth hold a- 
slender overall majority of 
four seats, and are vulnerable 
to the threat of defeat in the 
May elections, followed by the 
possibility of a Conservative 
administration, or coalition 
between Conservatives and 
Alliance members. 


Labour confident 
of Fulham victory 


By Richard Evans, Lobby Reporter 


After weeks of campaigning, 
the Fulham by-election finally 
got underway officially yester- 
day, with the Labour camp 
exuding confidence and pre- 
dicting a comfortable victory 
on April 10. 

Mr Roy Hattersley, shadow 
Chancellor of the Exchequer, 
speaking in the marginal 
south-west London constitu- 
ency hours before the poll writ 
was moved in the Commons, 
said: "We are going to win and 
I think we will win substan- 
tially. It will have a snowball 
effect for the party.” 

Mr Nick Raynsford, the 
Labour candidate, who is 
quoted at 6-4 on to win by 
Ladbrokes, has to overcome a 
Conservative majority of less 
than 5,000 at the last general 
election. If he wins it will 
represent Labour’s first by- 
election victory in London for 
29 years. 

With unemployment in Ful- 
ham running at 12.9 per cent 
compared to 4.5 per cent in 
1979. and male unemploy- 
ment at 17 per cent Mr 
Hattersley launched Labour’s 
campaign by unveiling a £6.8 
billion jobs package. 

"It is possible for us to 
create a million new- jobs in 


two years. It will not be easy. 
But if we make that objectivea 
primary ambition ana put all 
other aspirations into second 
place, it can be done,” he said. 

He said that the shadow 
Cabinet nad decided last week 
that a future Labour Govern- 
ment would concentrate na- 
tional resources on job 
creation. 

Mr Hattersley said that the 
Budget should contain a job 
creation programme o£ 

• £1 billion a year on public 
sector capital programmes, 
which would reduce the job- 
less by almost 70.000 in two 
years. 

mil billion on improved 
public sector services, which 
would cut the number of 
registered unemployed by 
about 100,000 in two years. 

• Reduced employers’ Na- 
tional Insurance contribu- 
tions. and so reducing the 
unemployed by 200,000 in 
two yeare at a cost of £1.5 
billion. 

• Acceptance of the Com- 
mons Employment Select 
Committee recommendation 
to guarantee jobs for the long- 
term unemployed, which 
would reduce unemployment 
by 750,000 over three years.

Council to 
ban elderly 
for fighting 


Fights between pensioners 
at council-run day centres for 
the elderly in Wales have led 
to tough new rules in an 
attempt to keep the peace. 

Cynon Valley council. 
South Wales, has threatened 
to ban unruly pensioners from 
its day centres after two men 
aged in their 80s swapped 
blows in a fight over a game of 
cards. 

In another incident, a 
grandfather, aged 72. allegedly 
punched a woman aged in her 
60s on the nose in an argu- 
ment about a coat 

“Most of our pensioners are 
quiet and respectable, but 
there is a fighting tradition in 
the valleys and Welshmen 
tend to put up their fists when 
things are not to their liking.” 
Mr Evan Evans, the council 
officer who will supervize the 
rules, said yesterday. 


Thatcher 
sympathy 
for pickets 


Maxwell 

dismisses 

1,0000 


By Richard Evans 
and Michael HorsneQ 

The Prime Minister told the 
Commons last night that she 
regretted injuries to two dem- 
onstrators caused by a lorry 
outside the News Internation- 
al plant at Wapping, east 
Loudon, on Wednesday night 

But she called on the Labour 
MP who raised the issue to 
express similar sympathy for 
the 79 police officers injured 
on the picket line at Wapping. 

Later Mr Peter Shore, 
shadow Leader of the House, 
who witnessed what he termed 
the "deplorable and 
daugerons” incident, called for 
an early statement from Mr 
Douglas Hurd, Home Secre- 
tary. 

Mr Martin O'Neill, MP for 
Clackmannan, told Mrs 
Thatcher that a lorry had 
charged through a group of 
speakers, including ■ Privy 
Councillors and members of 
the shadow Cabinet, outside 
the Wapping plant. 

The Prime Minister said: "I 
regret this incident in which 
two demonstrators at 
Wapping suffered injuries and 
I am gkd to say that the 
injuries were slight Two po- 
lice officers also suffered mi- 
nor injuries. 

"I hope Mr O'Nefll will 
express sympathy for the 79 
police officers injured on the 
picket line at Wapping.” ' 

Print union leaders will 
continue their campaign for 
the reinstatement of 6,000 
print workers when they bold 
further talks next week with 
Mr Bruce Matthews, the 
company's managing director. 


The management of Mr 
Robert Maxwell's Scottish 
Daily Record yesterday issued 
dismissal notices to the 
paper's 1 ,000 workers. 

The paper has felled to 
appear for four days in a print 
union "right of reply” dispute. 

In a letter to staff Mr Vic 
Horwood. the chief executive, 
raid that rival papera. with the 
co-operation of their own 
unions.' had "jumped in to 
take advantage”. . 

He raid the letter to staff 


W3s “protective notice of 
dismissal”. 


Publication of tbe Record 
was halted on Sunday night, in 
8 row over a leader article that 
was to have appeared in 
Monday's paper, critical both 
of Sogat and of a Scottish 
Labour Party attack on the 
"union busting, profit- 
maximising” actions of Mr 
Maxwell. 

The publisher has said pro- 
duction of the paper will not 
resume until be has an apolo- 
gy from Mr Allan Watson, a 
Sogat Scottish official, for an 
“unlawful act of censorship” 
and a written guarantee from 
him of no interference in 
editorial freedom. 

The row is the latest in a 
series at the paper about Mr 
Maxwell's plans for 300 re- 
dundancies, and economies, 
which he claims are essential if 
the paper and its sister. The 
Sunday Mail, are to have a 
viable future. 

Journalists yesterday con- 
demned the damage to the 
Record " by m an ag ement's sui- 
cidal methods or forcing the 
Staff to accept without negoti- 
ation Draconian measures of 
cost cutting, including mas- 
sive redundancies”. 


Schools 
close in 
protest 



By Lucy Hodges 
and Craig Settm 

Schools closed across Ex* 
giami and Wales for the lunch 
break yesterday as head teaca- 
os took their first national 
industrial' action ow wim 
meal supervision. 

Children were seta home or 
roamed the streets after heads 
bad locked the school gates. 
But many schools, particularly 
in rural areas, .stayed open 
because members of the Na- 
tional Association of Head 
Teachers did not Mow the 

recommendation. • 

In CoDsa'affwo-controUed 
Solihull only one head out of 
100 took action in defiance of a 
reminder from ’the authority 
that- he-had a duty to keep the 
school open. mi 

Mr Gordon Kirkpatrick, 
aged 49, head of Dozridge 
junior School, left the school 
at lunchtime but the authority 
brought in. three officers to 
supervise the pupils and meals 
were served normally. 

A former president of tbe 
NAHT in Solihull, be feces 
possible disciplinary actios at 
a governors' meeting today. 

Schools In Dorset, Shrop- 
shire the Outer London 
borough of Richmond were 
open to children at loach as 
normal yesterday. 

Most schools in Lmcstn- 
shire were also operating at 
midday. In . Hampshire and 
Leicestershire the picture was 
patchy. 

Only 39 of the 351 schools m 
Hereford and Worcester were 
dosed for lunch. But In the 
metropolitan areas more 
schools shut down. 

Mrs Jeanne Leeke, presi- 
dent-elect of the NAHT and 
head of a Birmingham junior 
school, daimed that mere than 
half her 370 members in tbe 
city had dosed their schools. 
More than half- the 
association's members fix Dud- 
ley, West Midlands, had also 
taken action. 

“We feel very angry that we 
have had to take dtis step 
because we have always been 
loyal employees,” she said. 

The NAHT wants a nation- 
ally negotiated agreement on 
midday supervision rather 
than the present situation in 
which authorities are prepar- 
ing local schemes and bidding 
for £40 million in government 
money. 

• The National Union of 
Teachers said, yesterday that 
teachers'- iniens throughout 
the worid had written to Mrs 
Thatcher Mid Sir EefthJe- 
seph, Secretary of State' for 
Education and Science, sup- 
porting their campaign for fair 
pay and more resources.

known or refuses to cooperate, 
then the matter cannot

listed several types of noise 
which often caused annoy- 
ance. • 

Household noise: Thin walls 
fiats and 

equipment have 

telped to push up the number, 
of com plaints more than ten- 
fold in the past 15 years. 
“Building regulations have 
failed to solve the problems of 
poor sound insulation in mod-

said. 

Cassette players: ' Almost 
2,000 complaints made to 
local councils last year about 
street noise,- often caused by 
cassette players, led to 35 


convictions, "it is a question 
of catching them at it”, Dr 
Leventhal . said “The only 
people available to do the 
catching are the overworked 
environmental . health 
officers." 

Building sites: The council's 
report suggested that builders’ 
satisfaction with council en- 
forcement. efforts indicated 
that they were too feeble. 
"Neighbourhood noise levels 
are unnecessarily elevated" 
Motorcycles: “Everybody 
knows it is a major problem, 
but constructioo-aiKkise reg-

testing of silencers," Mr 
Ankers said Dr Leventhal

inconsistently”, the report

A new company has- been 
set up to provide mortgages to 
higher income home buyere in 
the South-east 

The Household Mortgage 
Corporation aims to provide 
£L billion of mortgages within 
three years of itsT launch in.

Hie corporation will initiate 
business through the top ten 
insurance companies in the 
UK. estate agents and mort- 
gage brokers. It says that it can 
offer competitive mortgage 
terms because it does not have 
to bear the expensive over- 
heads. 

Mortgages of under £1 5,000 
will not be considered and the

But. the corporation says ft 
can turn around -.mortgage 
applications within . 24 ’hodis. : 
Its terms are likely to be based 
on. a formula- linked to bank-

Vegetarian diet may 
‘lead to deficiency’ 

By John Young, Agriculture Correspondent 


‘A vegetarian diet can signif- 
icantly reduce the incidence of 
a number of diseases related to 
meat fibre intake, according to 
a report published yesterday. 

Bin, at the same time, a 
, leading -nutritionist told a * 
< jj London conference that those 
who ate no food of animal 
origin might be at risk of 
deficiency. 

(Professor John Gatford, 
professor of health education 
and health promotion at the

/an important component of a 


healthy diet, and a valuable 
source of protein, iron, zinc

The first report by Professor 
John Dickerson, head of nutri- 
tion and food science at the 
University of Surrey, and Dr 
Jill Davies, senior lecturer in 
food and nutrition at the 
South Bank Polytechnic, 
found that vegetarians spent

Falklands 
survivor 
hit by cosh 

From Tim Jones 
Cardiff 

Spanish hostility over the 
Falklands campaign led to a 
badly-burned British survivor 
of the conflict being coshed by 
a security guard when he tried 
to enter a discotheque in 
Tenerife. 

Mr Simon Weston, aged 23, 
a former Welsh Guardsman, 
described yesterday how his 
first holiday since the war 
turned into two weeks of 
tension Mien some Spaniards 
realized bow he came by his 
injuriesJfe had gone to Tener- 
ifeas part of his rehabilitation. 

Mr Weston, named recently 
as a Man of the Year, was 
aboard the Sir Galahad when 
it .was hit and turned into a 
blazing inferno. Fifty men 
were killed, and 67 injured. 

Since then Mr Weston spent 
hasmonths having his face 
and hands reconstructedJie 
said: “When some of the 
Spaniards realized I- had been 
down to the .Falklands and 
that's why -1 looked the way . I 
did they started giving me a 
hardtime." 

After coshing him, the secu- 
rity guard “men stuck his 
pistol into my ribs. I took off. 
After all discretion is the 
better part of valour." 

On another, occasion, he 
was shunned at a restaurant 
after a wai ter asked him how 
his face had been scarred. 
“The waiter said ‘Las 
Malvinas' and I replied ‘yes 
the Falklands’." The waiter 
walked away without taking 
his order. 

But Mr Weston said that he 
had received a marvellous 
reaction from British 
tourists/Tt was my first real 
break since the Falklands and 
it was definitely worth it It 
won't stop me going on holi- 
day again although I wouldn't 
go to another Spanish area." 

Mrs Pauline Hatfield, his 
mother, said: “It's true that 
Simon, did. meet a certain 
amount of hostility the first 
week he was there but overall 
he enjoyed die holiday." 

His holiday .was paid for by 
a well-wisher -

Sony has decided to launch' 
the world's smallest portable 
disc player, the Discinan, in 
Britain next week. 

The Discman, a compact 
disc hi-fi, allows any track, to 
be* chosen, and the machine 
can also be connected to 
.amplifiers and speakers. It will 
/cost about £260. 

Britain has been chosen 
because sales of compact disc 
players have soared in the past 
few weeks. Sony expect ft to be 
^successful as the Walkman, 
fivf million of which have 
been sold worldwide since its 
introduction five years ago. 


Mother strangled her 
baby in hospital 


A Birmingham mother 
strangled her 15-day-old son 
on the floor of a hospital 
lavatory.the city’s Crown 
Court was told yesterday. -• 

- Christine Annesley, aged 
25, of Reservoir Road, Bamt 
Green. Hereford and Wor- 
cester, said she had killed her 
son, James, "to spite" her 
executive husband because 
she did not believe he was 
riving her the support she 
needed, Mr David Crigman, 
for die prosecution, said. 

She later said she hoped her 
actions would mean she 
would be sent to hospital . 
She was sent home from the 


Queen Elizabeth Maternity 
Hospital in Birmingham after 
James was born last Novem- 
ber. But she was readmitted 
some days later wiih the baby. 

When the child was brought 
into her single room to be fed 
she locked herself in the 
adjoining lavatory and stran- 
gled him. 

She was a mother who set 
herself “unattainable ideals 
and was concerned in case she 
fell short", Mr Michael Gar- 
rett for the defence, said. 

She was placed on proba- 
. tion for two years on condi- 
tion-- she continued with 
psychiatric treatment

Royal model found in chest 


By David Hewson 
Arts Correspondent 

The plaster model for one of 
the greatest royal sculpture 
commissions of the past centu- 
ry has been found mouldering 
in a tea chest on the Sandring- 
ham Estate. 

Partly restored, the model 
will be one of the surprises of 
an exhibition at the Royal 
Academy to mark the return of 
the familiar statue of Eros to 
Piccadilly Circus on March- 
24, and the revival of interest 
in its creator. Sir Alfred 
Gilbert. 

Gilbert, a member of the 
royal circle who later fell into 
debt and was asked to resign 
from the Royal Academy, is 
now best known for Eros, the 
statue that was criticized on 
moral grounds when it was 
unveffed in 1893, partly be- 
cause the Haymarket was then 



Sir Alfred Gilbert 
working in his studio 

a popular place for prostitutes. 

But it was the memorial to 
Queen Victoria's eldest grand- 
son, Prince Albert Victor, 
Dnice of Clarence and 
Avondale, which was the 


greatest commission of the 
day. 

Gilbert was reconciled to the 
Royal Family in old age and 
given a studio in Kensington 
Palace. The model for what 
many thought his greatest 
work was bought by Edward 
VH after Gilbert's death in 
1934, and then set aside. 

It remained lost until Mr 
Richard Dorment, who was 
working on a biography of 
Gilbert, visited Sandringham. 

Mr Dorment said that the 
model, fonnd in a tea chest, 
had been affected by water and 
gnawed by rats bat remained 

fascinating. 

It will be imveiled on March 
21 with other Gilbert work at 
the RA exhibition organized 
by Mr Dorment. The exhibi- 
tion includes some of the 
plasters from which Eros was 
cast 


Ethnic groups 
in community 
radio appeal 

The community radio 
movement is pressing Mr 
Douglas Hurd. Home Secre- 
tary. to award broadcasting 
franchises to stations appeal- 
ing solely to ethnic communi- 
ties. 

The Home Office is soon to 
announce the names of appli- 
cants who will be allowed to 
run a number of experimental 
community stations. Several 
ethnic groups have applied to 
start networks concentrating 
on black cultural issues and 
minority language broadcasts. 

In a letter to Mr Hurd, the 
Community Radio Associa- 
tion said that there was a need 
to correct discrimination 
against ethnic minorities, par- 
ticularly Afro-Caribbean and 
Asian groups, in the media. 


Bishop 
tells of 
satanist 
rituals 

A bishop yesterday told a 
court that satanists in Sussex 
acted out rituals ai the Long 
Man of Wilmington, a figure 
cut into a chalk hillside near 
Eastbourne. East Sussex. 

The Bishop of Lewes, the 
Right Rev Peter Ball, said that 
at first he had thought that 
“people mucked around" with 
the devil, but since the Derry 
Mainwaring Knight case be- 
gan. he realized satanic orga- 
nizations existed and that they 
were “a lot more real". 

“I think that was one of the 
reasons that 1 gave my support 
io Knight as I thought it was a 
rather large case of mucking 
around", the bishop told the 
jury in the satanist trial at 
Maidstone Crown Court. 

However, since then the 
bishop said that he had puz- 
zled in his mind whether the 
Rev John Baker. Rector of 
Newick. East Sussex, who was 
raising money for Mr Knight, 
and whom the bishop com- 
pletely trusted, was right. 

Mr KnighL aged 46. an 
unemployed painter and deco- 
rator. from Dormans Land. 
Surrey, denies 1*? charees of 
obtaining more than £20.000 
by deception from commitied 
Christians. 

He claims he spent the 
money on buying Saianic 
insignia to free himself from 
the control of the devil, but, it 
is alleged, the money went on 
fast cars, prostitutes and girl 
friends. 

The bishop said he had met 
Mr Knight to encourage him 
in his exit from evil.But he 
had expressed his amazement 
as the amount of money grew 
that he was told had to be 
raised to free Mr Knight from 
the devil's control. 

Mr Knight told the bishop 
about the operation he had as 
a young man to have discs 
inserted in his forehead to 
heighten his control by the 
devil. 

I he case continues today. 



Y>u can see them most 
evenings in the smarter 
trattorias and brasseries. 

Certainly you can hear them, 
braying at the top of their voices 
with phrases like: 

“Is anyone doing Philips BES 
scheme for importing retsina? 

He raised the first £250,000 over 
three lunches at Sweetings but 
they’ve still got to find another 
one-two-five.” 

They are the new City gents. 
Unnervingly young (25 to 35) 
and unpardonably well paid 
(£75,000 a year minimum) -a 
fact that is not a little irritating 
to those of their age and class 
who have somehow ended up on 
the wrong side of £25,000 p.a. 

In this weeks Spectator 
Nicholas Coleridge thoroughly 
examines their social habits and 


their sources of income, and

Indeed, the rest of this weeks

TREASURY 


With the Budget, a mere live 
' days a»a». Mr Nigel Lawson. 
Chancellor of the Exchequer. 

• told the Commons that he was 
confident that the rate of infla- 
tion would come down. 

During, the exchanges. Trea- 
sury ministers indulged on sev- 
eral occasions in the wellknown 
expression that MPs should 
await the Budget statement. 
However. Conservative back- 
benchers bombarded ministers 
' about Treasury calculations that 
Labour Party spending pledges. 
sci out in a recent written reply 
by Mr John MacGregor. Chief 
Secretary to the Treasury, to- 
talled £24 billion. 

■ Mr MacGregor explained to the 
House that he stuck to that 
figure but that he had written 
the previous day to Mr 
Hattersley admitting that one of 
the figures he had put in should 
be down and another should be 
up. Mr Hattersley had not given 
an alternative figure. 

If ii was going to be much 
lower it would be interesting to 
see which of the Labour spend- 
ing commitments Mr Hattersley 
was going to knock out. What 
was interesting was that Mr 
Hattersley did not wish to deny 
the figure of £24 billion. Mr 
Lawson at one stage said it was 
interesting the Labour Party had 
not been able to deny the 
accuracy of that costing. 


Mr James Lamond (Oldham 
Central and Royion. Lab) said 
Conservative MPs were trying 
to make the figure stick by 
constantly repeating it as though 
a lie constantly repeated became 
the truth. 

The issue of Labour's spend- 
ing was raised when Mr Lawson 
was asked during question time 
what he estimated would be the 
additional revenue in the year 
NSfr-87 if the marginal race of 
tax on personal incomes in 
excess of £30.000 was in- 
creased to 1 OO per cent. 

Indix idual taxable incomes in 
excess of £30.000 (he replied) 
total some £3.5 billion of which 

almost £2 billion -is already paid 
in income-tax. The theoretical 
additional yield of lOO percent 
tax on this slice of income would 
he about £1.5 billion, but che 
actual yield would be closer to 
zero as relatively few people are 
prepared to work for nothing. 

Mr Christopher Chope 
(Southampton. Itchen. C): It is a 
grave deception for any poli- 
tician to suggest that a public 
expenditure programme of an 
additional £24 billion could be 
financed merely by taxing the 
bctter-ofT. It really means that 
those on even well below av- 
erage earnings would have to 
pay substantially higher in- 
come-tax. 

Mr Lawsoir. That is right. He is 
on the ball. There is an alter- 
native. it is possible, because 
they have said they will not raise 


the basic rate of income-tax, that 
they might have recourse to 
VAT- In which case, arithmeti- 
cally they would require a 4 1 per 
ccni rate’ of VAT. 

Mr lan Wrigglesworth (Stock- 
ion South. SDP): The burden of 
taxation on individuals has 
increased under this Govern- 
ment. A recent ministerial reply 
showed that the Government 
would have to reduce the basic 


Labour government of which 
Mr Wngglesworth was a sup- 
porter. 

The total revenue from tax- 
ation is up because incomes and 
prosperity have increased very 
considerably. As for the future. I 
welcome the feel that he would 
like to see taxes down. So would

and more punitive capital taxes,

that, but had to go cap-in-hand 
to the International Monetary 
Fund 10 years’ ago. 

Mr Normait Atkinson 
(Tottenham. Lab): Which sec- 
tion of the Treasury established 
the £24 billion figure? Was it 


wholly the work of the Trea- 
? Wil

said later) to cost absolutely the

the increase in taxes people pay 
in other spheres. Until he re- 
duces the basic rate by that 
amount, will he refrain from 
claiming that there has been a 
decrease in taxation? 

Mr Lawson: The level of in- 
come-tax is now considerably 
lower than it was under the 


around to that in due course. 

Meanwhile, we have been 
able to cost properly, correctly 
and objectively the programme 
of the Labour Party and it is 
interesting that they have not 
been able to deny the accuracy 
of that costing. 

Mr Dale Campbell-Sa roars 

(Workington. Lab y. The pro- 
gramme of a Labour govern- 
ment will not only be funded out 
of taxation of the more highly- 
paid. but out of an industrial 
strategy for growth, as against 
the Government's strategy for 
recession and the many biUions 
of pounds given away by the . 
Government in the form of 
concessions on capital transfer 
tax and capital gains tax which 
would be sufficient to finance 
the programmes of the Labour 
Government. 

Mr Lawson: There is no way in 
which Labour can find £24 
billion from capital taxes. Not 
even the last Labour Govern- 


pledges to which die 


public _ — ^ — 

Labour Party is committed and 
then asked Treasury officials to 
give an .objective costing of 
those pledges. They did that and 
the figure arrived at was £24 
billion. 

•Earlier. Mr M; . 

peaied his bdief that the 

Party's public expenditure pro- 
posals would cost about £24 
billion. 

He was replying to Mr Mi- 
chael Fallon (Darlington. C) 
who said the one tbingeenain to 
destroy jobs' was a £24 billion 
public spending spree, as 
planned by the Labour Party. 

Mr MacGregor agreed with 
him and said this would lead 
either to increased taxation or to 
increased borrowing, which 
would clobber industry. 

He had written to Mr Roy 
Hattersley. chief Opposition 
spokesman on Treasury and 
economic affairs, indicating that 


he believed the extra pubhe 
expenditure involved m the 
Labour Party's proposals would 
be in the region of £24 billion. 
Mr Bob Clay (Sundenand 
North. Ub) said last year the 
Chancellor of the Exchequer 
(Mr Nigel Lawson) had de- 
scribed his Budget as a budget 
for jobs. Since then unemploy- 
ment had increased by over 
1 14,000. 

When the Chancellor sits 
dawn on Tuesday (be added) 
will he tell us. m language the 
unemployed will understand, is 
unemployment going to go up or 
down? 

Mr MacGregor replied that 
the last Budget announced 
significant increases in expen- 
diture on employment and 
training measures for 1986/7, 
such as the YTS. 

•Later Mr David Wnmidc 
(Walsall North. Lab) said most 
people were now paying more: 
taxes, directly and indirectly, 
than they were in 1979. 

Had the Government es- 
timated the amount of money 
lost to the Treasuiy as a result of 
mass unemployment? If those 
people had been allowed to earn 
a living, how much more would 
the revenue have gained 
through proper taxation? 

Mr John Moore, Financial Sec- 
retary to the Treasury, replied 
that people were paying less tax 
at all levels than they were when 
the Conservatives came to 
power. 


Press 
should not 
name rape 
victims 

CRIME 

The naming of rape victims by 
(he media was criticized by the 
Prime Minister during question 
time in the Commons. 

Mrs Thatcher said rape was a 
'uniquely barbaric offence and 
-the recent guidelines issued by 
- the Lord Chief Justice had led to 
much more severe sentencing. 

I think the whole of the media 
(she said) bear a heavy 
responsibility for the way in 
which they ' report crimes of 
violence. In rape cases, the same 
of the victim must not be given 
by law after the charge has been 
made, bot there are certain 
customs and conventions which 
obtain between the commission 
of this terrible offence and the 
court which one would hope 
would be observed by the press. 

She was replying to Mr Alan 
Beith (Berwick-upon-Tweed. L) 
who suggested that the behav- 
iour of the press and- media 
played some part in creating a 
climate of opinion in wbleh so 
many rapes and sexual assaults 
on women took place. 

He asked her to disocciate 
herself from the ridicule suffered 
the previous day by Ms Clare 
Short (Birmingham. Ladywood, 
Lab) when she was introducing a 
Bill to ban pictures of near- 
naked women from newspapers. 

He also urged Mrs Thatcher 
to use her influence to bring 
together newspaper proprietors 
and editors • 

Sir Edward Gardner (FyWe. Q 
said there seemed to be a 
growing and strong link between 
violent crime, including rape, 
and the widespread misuse of 
heroin and cocaine. 

Will the Prime Minister con- 
firm (he asked) that this Gov- 
ernment is giving and will 
continue to give the highest 
priority and all the resources 
that may be necessary to meet 
the terrible dangers of drug 
abase? 

Mrs Thatcher Yes, I agree that 
■ the use of drugs makes aO crime 
' worse than it would otherwise 
be. particularly crimes of vi- 
olence. We will give every 
priority to tackling this terrible 
canker in our lives. 

The law was being changed to 
. make it easier to get at _ the 
proceeds of that dastardly crime. 


Kinnock wants more spent 
on crime prevention 


BURGLARIES 

Challenged by Mr Neil Kinnock. 
Leader of the Opposition. to 
provide new money to make 
homes and ihc streets safe from 
crime. Mrs Thatcher, the Prime 
Minister, said in the Commons 
amid loud Labour interrup- 
tions: I will stand comparison 
with any Labour MP in persona] 
care and provision. 

Mr Kinnock said there had been 
an alarming and massive in- 
crease in crime of 41 per cent 
since 1978. Would the Prime 
Minister ensure that new money 
was allocated to local authorities 
to assist them in their efforts to 
make streets and homes safer for 
ordinary citizens, especially the 
clderiv? 

Mrs Thatcher said Mr Kinnock 
knew that extra money had been 
given to local authorities 
through the police grant. Some 
money was expended, too. un- 
der the Community Programme 


to further crime prevention 
programmes. 

Mr Kinnock commented that 
that answer was somewhat 
misleading. At the crime 
prevention seminar Mrs 
Thatcher had held in January, 
the only new money even 
referred to had been £50 million 
to be taken from the housing 
improvement programme. 

Thai would be an inadequate 
sum (he said) from the wrong 
source. The sums involved in 
improving door locks, safety 
standards of doors, lighting, 
telephone entry systems and 
other security additions need to 
be paid for and can appro- 
priately be aided by the Govern- 
ment. 

Mrs Thatcher, amid interrup- 
tions from the Labour benches, 
said: Most people will, and 
should be. in a position to 
provide for crime prevention on 
their own. Yes. of course- they 
should. Mr Kinnock. with al- 
most every question, wants to 
put his hand deeper into the 
taxpayer's pocket 


The Opposition does not care 
how much it takes away from 
the taxpayer, and it is better for 
most people able to do these 
things to do so. 

For the elderly who cannot 
afford it is a proper use of 
money from the community 
programme, for instance, and 
labour from the programme, to 
help in crime prevention 

Mr Kinnock: Much of what she 
says might be true in Dulwich 
but it is not necessarily true on 
housing estates throughout the 
country. 

If we do not find resources to 
help old people and poor people 
protect their homes and streets, 
we are going to have to find it in 
any case to help the police detect 
the crime too late and after the 
damage has been done. 

Mrs Thatcher He should reflect 
on what the Government has 
done in the way of providing 
extra police and extra equip- 
ment, and he goes and shakes 
hands with Benue Grant and 
ScargilL 


Interest rates trend helpful 


The Shadow Chancellor of the 
Exchequer. Mr Roy Hattersley, 
had been wrong on January 8 — 
the last lime interest rates were 
changed - when he forecast that 
they were bound to rise. They 
had remained unchanged since 
then. Mr Hattersley was always 
wrong. Mr Nigel Lawson, Chan- 
cellor of the Exchequer, said 
during questions in the Com- 
mons. 

Mr Hattersley had asked Mr 
Lawson to break the habit of a 
lifetime and be frank with MPs. 
Was it not true, a squalid fact, 
that the inevitable reduction in 
interest rates was being held 
tack to give shine to the Budget 
next T uesday which would 
otherwise be very lacklustre 
indeed? 

Earlier, Mr Michael Latham 
(Rutland and Melton. O said all 
the economic jigsaw pieces now 
seemed in place for an immedi- 
ate and significant cut in rates. 
What was preventing it? 

Mr Lawson said difficulties 
from the present rates should 
not be exaggerated. The latest 
manufacturing trends inquiry 
showed the best response on 
output and prices since those 
figures had first started being 
collected. 

The difference between the 
United Kingdom and other 


countries that were reducing 
rates was that they had un- 
ambiguously benefitted from 
the fail io oil prices whereas the 
effects for the UK had in- 
evitably been more mixed. The 
world trend could be nothing 
but helpful. 

Mr Robert Sheldon (Asbton- 
under-Lyne, Lab) said that 
knowing Mr Lawson’s partiality 
for announcing such things at 
Budget time, did he realize that 
MPs would be extremely dis- 
appointed if there was not an 
interest rate cut of considerably 
more than one percent? 

Mr Lawson said Mr Sheldon 
seemed to have an extraor- 
dinary insight into his 
partialities. In neither of his 
previous Budgets had he an- 
nounced interest rate cuts. 

Sir William Clark (Croydon 
South, O said a ) percent cut in 
base rates would give industry a 
welcome boost. Also, a 1 per 
cent reduction in wage claims 
would reduce unit labour costs 
far more than a l per cent 
reduction in interest. 

Mr Lawson agreed and said 
there was a further connection. 
He had told the National Eco- 
nomic Development Council 
recently that excessive wage 
increases put upward pressure 
on costs and it was essential to 


stop that leading to an upsurge 
in inflation and still higher 
interest rates. There was a 
double benefit from controlling 
pay costs. 

Mr Dennis Skinner (Bolsover. 
Lab) said sky-high interest rates 
had resulted in City bankers 
making massive profits, 
whereas manufacturing and lo- 
cal government had suffered. 

That was one reason why the 
people of Fulham would be 
voting out the Tory candidate. 

Mr Lawson said be doubted Mr 
Skinner had much knowledge of 
Fulham. (Conservative laugh- 
ter). If there were ever to be a 
Labour Government again — 
which there would not - putting 
into effect their £24 billion 
worth of public expenditure 
would affect borrowing and 
raise interest rates far higher 
than they were now. 

Mr Alan Howarth (Stratford- 
on-Avon, Q said Labour’s poli- 
cies would undoubtedly mean 
taxation even higher than it had 
been under the last Labour 
Government . the collapse of the 
pound and soaring inlfetion and 
unemployment. 

Mr Lawson: His assessment 
corresponds precisely with ray 
own. 


Rate of inflation will 
come down - Lawson 


PROSPECTS 


Mr Nigel Lawson, the Chan- 
cellor of the Exchequer, is 
confident that the rate of infla- 
tion will come down, he said 
during questions. The present 
rate of inflation was not satisfac- 
tory. even though it was lower 
than it was under the last 
Labour Government. 

He said that be would be 
dealing with the prospects for 
inflation in .the Budget next 

Tuesday. 

Mr Roy Hattersley, chicCOppo- 
sition spokesman on Treasury 
and economic affairs, asked the 
Chancellor to explain why 
Britain's inflation rate was now 
running faster and higher than 
the inflation rate m any of their 
OECD competitors? 

Mr Lawson: I have said that I do 
not regard the present rate of 
inflation as satisfactory, even 


though it is far lower than it was 
during the time of the Labour 
Government. I am confident 
that it will come down. 

Mr David Penhafigon (Truro, 
L): Will be confirm the remark- 
able fact that the only equiva- 
lent industrial nation with a 
higher rate of inflation is Italy. 
Was that his aim when be tow 
office two years ago? 

Mr Lawson: The financial 
spokesman for the Liberals and 
SDP has said that their pro- 
gramme would produce infla- 
tion of 7.5 per cent. I shall be 
dealing with the prospects for 
inflation in the Budget. I do not 
regard the present level of 
inflation as satisfectory even 
though it is far lower than was 
ever achieved under Labour. 


Parliament today 

Commons (9. 30): Backbench 
motion on management 
reorganisation of NHS. 


Picket incident regret 


night. 


Mrs Margaret Thatcher, the 
Prime Minister, expressed her 
regret" in the Commons that two 
d emonstra tors had been injured 
outside the News International 
plant atWappiag on Wednesday 
iL : 

issue was raised by Mr 
Martin O'Neill (Clackmannan, 
Lab) who said a rogue lorry 
charged a crowd of speakers 
outside the plant, iaefodiog 
privy councillors and members 
of the Shadow Cabinet. 

Mrs Thatcher I regret in this 
Incident two demonstrators at 
Wapping suffered injuries and I 
am gbd to say that the injuries 
were slight Two police officers 
also suffered minor injuries. 

I hope Mr O'Neill will ex- 
press sympathy for the 79 police 
officers injured on the picket line 
at Wapping. 


Later, daring basiuess ques- 
tions, Mr Peter Shore, chief 
'Opposition .spokesman on 
Commons* affairs, said he also 
wanted to refer to a deplorable 
ami dangerous {oddest at 
Wapping, in his constituency, 
when a heavy lorry ploughed its 
way through the crowd. This was 
witnessed by himself and three 
of his colleagues. 

Wm Mr Biffen ask the Home 
Secretary (Mr Douglas Hard) to 
wiw an early statement (he 
west on), not only on this event, 
but on the arrangements be- 
tween the pofice -and News 
International on the movement 
of lorries with a view to avoiding 
what could easily have been a 
disastrous event? 

Mr John Biffen. Leader of the 
House: I will refer Mr SfcoreY 
request to the Home Secretary. 


Job schemes go well 


Early indications from the nine 
pilot job start schemes were 
encouraging Lord Young of 
Graflham. Secretary of State for 
Employment, said during ques- 
tion time in the House of Lords. 
He said the Government was 
studying the results urgently to 
see if the scheme could be 
widened 

Answering a question by Lady 
Fisher of Red nal (Lab) on 
response to the pilot scheme, he 
told peers: In the nine weeks to 


March 7, 14,363 invitations to 
attend in depth interviews ai job 
centres were issued to long term 
unemployed people in ihe nine 
pitot areas. 

As a result, 10.507 interviews 
have been beid and some 80 per 
cent of those Interviewed have 
agreed to follow up a positive 
opportunity. 

He added later that the Gov- 
ernment was now studying the 
initial results 


Nirex proposal 



NUCLEAR WASTE 

Nuclear disposal sites flat 
stored waste ncarthe surface 
would never be willingly ac- 
cepted if they contained ma- 
terial of intermediate Ufe 
expectancy, Mr Douglas Hogg 
(Grantham. O said when open- 
ing a short debate in the 
Commons. , 

■ He said the Nodear Industry 
Radioactive Waste Executive 
(Nirex) had proposed derailed 
geological investigations ar four 
possible sites -. Fulbocfc airfield. 
Lincolnshire, in his consul 
uency: Hstow, Bedfordshire; 
Brad well. Essex, and South 
KjUtogboirae, ; South Humber- 
side/ 

The Nirex scheme was con- 
trary to the recommendations 
earlier this week of the Environ?- 
mem Select Com mitte e, the 
weight of informed opinion and 
to the lessons of the past It also 
ignored the existence of .other 
established disposal methods. It 
reflected a certain complacency, 
lack of sensitivity and lack of 
research, as well as incom- 
petence, by the British nuclear 
industry. . 

Those.of ns who represent the 
people who live in the areas 
containing the proposed sites 
(he said) are simply not going ,*n 
deliver the British nuclear in- 
dustry from the consequences of 
its own actions and its own folly. 

He was pleased to see the 
Chief Whip (Mr John 

Wakeham) whose Essex constit- 
uency was affected, by the pro- 
posals, giving powerful support 
by being present on the Govern- 
ment from botch for the debate. 



Wakehaac Sfleace tat ta be 

. construed as indiflerence - 

-• The near-surface disposal sys- 
tem was not proper, safe nor 
necessary for disposing of inter- 
mediate level nuclear waste. 
The hydrological and geological 
properties of the proposed 
Fulbeck site -were inappropriate 
, for . construction of such a site. 
'The roatLctHtim unications were 
such that .no safe system of 
. transporting- waste to the area- 
was 'possible. - • 

It was frequently argued that 
ihere was no alternative to near- 
surface rites. He believed that 
was manifestly untrue. With the 
exception of the United States 
and nance, all OECD nod ear 
countries were proposing to 
dispose of nuclear waste in deep 
geological rites. 

-He believed -there were three 
options; ofl drilling techniques 
to create deep holes in the 
continental shelf into which 
waste could be put; disposal in 
the deep ocean, on the seabed, 
or by emplacement; tunnels or 
caverns excavated under the 
seabed. 

• He was concerned that the 
nuclear, industry had been so 
slow to investigate what tech- 
nology could give h. 

. The feet that Nirex had not 
come forward with options to 
the near-surface system was a 
failure on their part to show the 
kind of consistent commitment 
to research that it was right to 
expect of them, even though 
there was no immediate and 
pressing need to find- another 
method and another site for the 
disposal of nuclear waste. 

Mr David Alton (LiverpooL 
Mossley Hill, L) said they, were . 
being bounced into taking de-

back yards they should ask 
themselves why it was amiable 

for somebody rise's. 

The Government should tm- 
roediatciy set op an independent 
inquiry into the continuation of 
the nuclear imfustiy. 

Sir Benwrd Bntine (Castle 
PtHDL CV said that- there was a 
long-established convention 
itat chief whips did not express 

their views in the chamber, but 

the silence today of Mr John 
Wakcham. the Gpverotwm

The proposal was madness 
and it would be preferable to 
tear it up. ' " 

Mr Michael Brown (Briggand 
Oeetborpes. C) said- 

no work had been done on

the problem of nuclear waste. 
Nirex was an unaccountable and 
□selected body. „■ Its repre-

Mrs Angela Rumbold, Under

this issue very seriously. She 
hoped she could allay some of 
the fears that had been ex- 
pressed. ■ 

Tte Government would try to 
ensure that the whole selection 
and evaluation' of a site was 
done as openly as possible. 

. We sball ensure (she added) 
that any radioactive doses from 
the' disposal rite ' are insignifi- 
cant. 

Any disposal of waste under 
die sea bed would require a 
licence by the Minister, of Agn- 
culnne under the Food and 
Environmental Protection Act. 

The nuclear, industry was 
probably the most highly xtgp- „ 
lated industry, and Nirex would I s 
not be an exception. 


Policing of Ulster 


RUC chief calls for tribunal 
to decide on parade routes 


From Richard Ford 
Belfast 

Sir John Hermon. Chief 
Constable of the Royal Ulster 
Constabulary, has suggested 
that an independent public 
tribunal could consider deci- 
sions on the banning and re- 
routing of traditional parades 
in Northern Ireland. 

Such a proposal would be 
part of an effort to end 
allegations that the police are 
acting politically when they 
make recommendations 
about '‘loyalist" and republi- 
can parades, and that RUC 
decisions are being made at 
the behest of the Irish Repub- 
lic. 

Sir John's suggestion yester- 
day comes after violent dem- 
onstrations and controversy 
over loyalist parades last sum- 
mer. and with traditional Or- 
ange institutions threatening 
not to negotiate with police 
over any re-routings this sum- 
mer. 

Sir John iscritica! of parade 
organizers, arguing that their 
altitudes often make the task 
of the police more difficult 
while ihe community becomes 
entrenched and embittered. 

In his report for 1985. Sir 
John said that out of 1.897 
loyalist and 223 republican 
parades only three were 
banned and 22 re-routed last 
year. 

He said that there was 
opposition to ihe re-rouling

praised his officers.

away from areas which were 
no longer populated with peo- 
ple linked with the particular 
organization parading. 

"Unless parading organiza- 
tions face the reality that 
population changes can result 
in areas once receptive becom- 
ing hostile, then the public 
order task of the RUC will 
become increasingly difficult 
and. of greater importance. 



the community will become 
totally entrenched and 
embittered." 

Sir John devoted a section 
of his report to the Anglo-Irish 
agreement and its effect on 
policing, along with "mischie- 
vous attempts" by public rep- 
resentatives to cause concern 
or disquiet within the force's 
ranks. 

Unionist politicians are 
wanted that subversive orga- 
nizations might attempt to 
legitimize themselves by be- 
coming involved in protests 
against the agreement- “Re- 
sponsible leaders should be 
fully aware of this danger, 
clearly dissociate themselves 
from such people and ensure 
that their followers are not 
duped or misled." 

The report showed that 
terrorism in the province was 
at its lowest level since 1970 
with shootings and explosions 
down by 30 per ceni and the 
Provisional IRA’s campaign 
increasingly concentrated in 
border areas. 

Sir John praised his officers 
for their outstanding courage. 
"Each and every day. whatev- 
er the danger, whatever the 
call of duty, they demonstrate 
that they are totally commit- 
ted to defeating terrorism” 

Of para-military organiza- 
tions. Sir John said: “Stripped 
of the double talk and propa- 
ganda. their purpose is mur- 
der. destruction, intimidation, 
the perpetuation of hatred.’'

Court criticizes the singing sheriff 


The conduct of a sheriff who 
loudly sang two different ver- 
sions of an anti-Roman Catho- 
lic song, called The Sash My 
Father Wore, during a crimi- 
nal trial was condemned by 
three judges in the Justiciary 
Appeal Court, Edinburgh, yes- 
terday. 

They said the conduct of 
Sheriff David Smith at Kil- 
marnock Sheriff Court last 
June in asking the accused to 
sing, showing annoyance at his 


refusal and then singing him- 
self, was deplorable in the 
highest degree. 

But the court refused to 
quash the conviction of Robert 
Hawthorn, aged 25, a 
labourer, of Seaton Terrace, 
Irvine, who claimed the sheriff 
humiliated him. 

He had been jailed for six 
months for kicking Raymond 
Hay, of Sophia Crescent, 
Irvine, on the head. He was on 
ball pending the appeal. 


. Lord Ross, Lord Justice 
Clerk, who presided at. the 
Appeal Court, said: “What the 
sheriff did in my opinion was 
ill-considered m . 

Lord Hunter and Lord Rob- 
ertson agreed that what the 
sheriff had done was deplor- 
able. 

Evidence had been given 
that the assault victim had 
been singing a version of ‘The 

Sash” and that this led to the 
incident. 


New roads 
‘no cure 
for delays’ 

■ By Michael Baity, 
Transport Editor . . 

London is doomed to suffer 
permanent traffic delays un- 
less • there is a change in 
Government policy, a leading 
traffic expert said yesterday. . 

The present policy of build- 
ing more roads is not a core 
because if more capacity is 
provided on the roads. -or 
more car parks are inade 
available, more car users will 
come inio -the centre. Dr 
Martin Mogridge of theTrans- 
port Studies Group at Univer- 
sity College. London, said. 

Dr Mogridge admitted 
motorists', addiction to car 
commuting,' but said that in 
One important respect it was 
misplaced. Actual driving 
times were certainly foster by 
car. than public transport, at 
an average 12 mph. . 

But if the time taken to park 
and walk from parking space 
to destination is added, ibe 
two journeys are equally slow, 
at an average J mph. ... 

The way to speed up traffic 
is to improve fail services. Dr 
Mogridge believes: especially 
by providing new London 
routes such as the Snow Hill' 
connection between northern 
and southern commuter tines. 

And ., traffic through- -the 
Dartford Tunnel hasgrownby 
a.funher 2,000-3.000 vehicles 
a day since the Swarriey- 
Sevenoaks section of the M25 
was opened last month, foe 
ipad pressure' group Move- 
ment for London has said.

-io sue any local authority 
*which fails to remedy an 
' injustice caused by maladmin- 
istration. 

V- The recommendation is 
..likely to be opposed by the 
: Govern mem which has mad? 
clear its view that itis against 
- legislation for the enibroetnent 
of remedies and says that such 
^enforcement through - the 
courts “would formalize all 
’.investigations and thereby 
make them lengthier and - 
costlier". . . : A r . 

But the select committee oh 
.the Pariiaxhehtary Commis- 
sioner for Administration is 
‘.understood to be “extremely 
■ dissatisfied" with the present 
..position.; • 

' At present a person who 
-takes a complaint to the local 
".ombudsman and obtains a 
ruling' that there has been 
I injustice caused by maladmin- 
istration hasrno remedy where 
the authority refuses to act. 

Since 1 974, there have been 
100 findings of maladminis- 
tration and injustice in En- 
gland where the local 


authority refused to "provide a 
satisfactory remedy. 

MPs* concern that “such an 
extent of defiance by' local 
authorities risks bringing tire 
ombudsman - system into 
disrepute” led to their setting 
up an inquiry. 

. The right to. enforce ' a 
-remedy in the courts -was 
strongly supported by the 
Commission -for Local' Ad- 
ministration in England, the 
body which staffs the three 
local ombudsmen.. 

“The situation "is. bad be- 
cause injustice should always 
be remedied - and without the 
need for time and money to be 
spent cajoling reluctant 
authorities",.^ said. 

Under the.Northern Ireland 
system, which MPs are expect- 
ed' to propose, the complain- 
ant could apply to the county 
court for tire authority to pay 
an amount the court thought 
right to compensate for the 
injustice^ 

•/Where money is not an 
appropriate remedy, such as 
where .a council refused to 
rehouse- a complainant, the 
court would have power to 
order the authority, to take - or 
refrain from taking - certain 
action. 

Bui the Depaprtxnent of the 
Environment, in response to 
this proposal, said the right 
solution was to “act by 
persuasion".

From Stephen Taylor 
Adelaide 

The Queen and Duke of 
Edinburgh waved farewell to 
Australia from the steps of an 
RAAF jet yesterday, 26 days 
after setting out on what has 
been an arduous and eventful, 
but also, aides say, a remark- 
ably satisfying and happy 
royal tour. 

They were seen off by Sir 
Niriian Stephen, the Gover- 
nor-General, and Mr- Bob 
Hawke, the. Prime Minister 
who. whatever- his own senti- 
ments, will be in no doubt that 
Australians still want their 
Queen. The prevalent nation- 
al mood is a comfortable 
acceptance that Australia will 
one day be a republic, but for 
the time being that day looks a 
long way off 

lire final day, as well as the 
farewells, brought a last dem- 
onstration =- and an apology 
from two of the 12 people 
known to have been arrested 
in the course of the tour. 

While tiie - Duke was at 
Flinders University to unveil 
-a bust of Matthew Flinders, 
who charted the Australian 
coast, a group of about a dozen 
students held placards protest- 
ing that" money had been spent 
on the ceremony rather than 
on campus clinic facilities. 

During the ceremony one 
student called out “Long live 
the republic of Australia.* The 
Duke, standing near the mi- 
crophone but apparently un- 
aware that it was switched on, 
murmured: “That’s a good 
idea." 

Meanwhile, the household 
made public a letter to the 
Queen from two young men 
arrested after they attempted, 
unsuccessfully, to spray the 
Royal couple with a fire hose 
from, the top of a building. 

Apologizing for “any 
inconvenience", the letter 
said: “The turning on of the 
hose from the top of tire 
building after you had entered 
the hotel was the result of high 
spirits and was an act of 
spontaneous stupidity which 
we truly regret ■ 





Fond farewell: The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh (below) return waves from officials at Adelaide airport yesterday. 


“There was no premedita- 
tion or any thought of protest 
at your visit We do hope you 
wDl enjoy the rest of your visit 
to Australia. We have the 
honour to remain Madam, 
your most humble and obedi- 
ent servants It was signed L. 
McBride and Fred Saad. 

In 26 days the Royal couple 
visited- Nepal, New Zealand 
and Australia, and stopped in 
12 towns and cities, with a 
walkabout in each. One in- 
triguing aspect of the Austral- 
asian tour was the way it 
highlighted * shifting national 
moods. 

New Zealand, traditionally 
regarded as perhaps the most 
royalist of Commonwealth 
countries, is now all-question- 
ing of the royal link. It would 
be a mistake to read too much 
into bare-bottom protests, or 
even two thrown eggs, but 
New Zealanders have ac- 
quired, through the Anzus and 
Rainbow Warrior affairs and 
the consequent raising of their 
international profile, a greater 
sense of independence and 
confidence. 


Australia, on the other 
hand, which was once seen 
from New Zealand as a son of 
big brother more inclined to 
question and criticize the 
“motherland", has put behind 
ft the bitterness towards royal- 
ty which arose from the 
d ismissal of the Whi tl am 
Government a decade ago. 

A feature of the tour has 
been the extensive and posi- 
tive coverage ft received in the 
Australian media. Leading ar- 
ticles have been uniformly 
welcoming. prompting Mr 
Michael Shea the Queen's 
press secretary, to remark: 
“There has never been a 
wanner response from editori- 
al opinion here." 

Australia will be looking 
forward to another royal visit 
in 1988, the year of the 
bicentenary. Appropriately 
the man in charge of organiz- 
ing it is an Australian. 

Sir William Hesdtine, who 
next month takes over from 
Sir Philip Moore as the 
Queen's private secretary, will 
be the first Commonwealth 
citizen to hold the post.

Manila close to rebel pact 


The new Government of 
President Aquino is dose to a 
breakthrough in ceasefire ne- 
gotiations to end almost two 
decades of fighting by Com- 
munist and Muslim rebels. 

The Communist New 
People’s Army (NPA) has 
stopped all “offensive 
actions" in three central prov- 
inces and “thousands" of 
leftist and Muslim separatist 
rebels have sent “peace- 
feders" the Political Afiairs 
Minister, Mr' Antonio 
Cuenco. said yesterday. 

Mrs Aquino, who has met 
Communist Party leaders, is 
expected to meet today self- 


From Keith Dalton, Manila 

exiled Muslim rebel com- 
manders who have returned to 
discuss ending the rebellion. 

Mr Cuenco expects Mrs 
Aquino will soon proclaim 
amnesties for both forces. 

But Mrs Aquino is insisting 
that the Communist rebels 
first lay down their arms. 
Although the Communist Par- 
ty central committee has re- 
jected that, Mr Cuenco is 
confident many of the esti- 
mated 16,000 NPA members 
are prepared to do so. The 
Communist political leaders 
admit to misreading the popu- 
lar sentiment and underesti- 
mating the extent of the 


people's power movement 
which ousted Mr Marcos. 
Likewise. Mrs Aquino's purge 
of" 23 Marcos generals, the 
reorganization of the military 
and replacement of abusive 
local officials could rob the 
NPA of new recruits.

Jovito Salonga. bead of the 
Philippine commission inves- 
tigating Mr Marcos’s wealth, 
has arrived in Hawaii and the 
Reagan Administration has 
agreed to give him and Con- 
gressional investigators copies 
of 1.500 financial documents 
Mr Marcos brought with him 
(Michael Binyon writes). 


Accuser 
of Kohl 
quits 
in style 

Bonn (Reuter) - Herr Otto 
Schily, the Greens’ MP who 
has prompted unprecedented 
legal proceedings against 
Chancellor Helmut Kohl, re- 
signed from Parliament with a 
characteristic flourish. 

Addressing the chamber be- 
fore making way for a succes- 
sor. he accused West 
Germany’s established parties 
of a huge cover-up of illegal 
business donations to their 
funds. 

“I do not expect any self- 
criticism. . . from those in- 
volved because they are too 
concerned about their posi- 
tions and have sunk too deep 
into the mud of political 
donations.” he said. 

Herr Schily. aged 53. was 
speaking during a debate on 
the final report of a parliamen- 
tary committee which for 
more than two years investi- 
gated allegations that the giant 
Rick industrial concern pro- 
vided party funds in return for 
tax favours.

Buoyant Carrington 
applauds result 

From Richard Owen and Frederick BotmartrBnissels 


In buoyant mood. Lord 
Carrington, the Nato Secre- 
tary-General yesterday greet- 
ed the result of the Spanish 
referendum as “good for Ea- 
rope, good for the alliance and 
good for Spain". 

Consultations would now go 
forward between Nato and 
Madrid over Spain's role in 
the in the light of tiie 
three conditions of member- 
ship laid down in the referen- 
dum: the armed forces would 
not be integrated into Nato’s 
mifitAry' structure; no nuclear 
weapons wo old be stationed on 
Spanish soil: and American 
troops in Spain would be. cut 
back. 

With Spain’s Ambassador 
to Nato, Senor Jaime ^ 
Ojeda, at his side, Lo™ 
Carrington said the result 
meant that a major European 
country could now play fts fell 
part in Nato and the EEC. 

The conditions are not a 
cause of serious concern in 
Nato. Lord Carrington said 
the American troops in Spain 


were not a matter for the 
alliance. 

Sehor de Ojeda pointed out 
that before Spain joined the 
oilinnee US forces were carry- 
ing mit Nato missions in his 
country. These were no longer 
needed now its membership 
was confirmed. The vote-was 
not to be seen as anti- Ameri- 
can betas reflecting a wish for 
a reduction in foreign military 
forces and the transfer of their 
functions to the Spanish mili- 
tary. 

• WASHINGTON: The US 
State Department said: “In 
strengthening the security of 
its democratic values, Spain 
has also strengthened that of 
its friends and allies." The 
vote had also “reinforced the 
sense of confidence shared by 
members of the Western dem- 
ocratic community. 

• LONDON: The Foreign 
Office said the vote had 
“historic importance for the 
Western world. As a fellow 
member of the alliance, we 
warmly welcome the decision 
of the Spssists people.

Norway crisis budget

Amid government warnings 
of “economic catastrophe”, an 
emergency package of budget 
adjustments is to be propored

Le Pen’s campaign loses its fizz 


From Diana Geddes 
Mantes-la-Jolie 

The fizz has gone out of the 
National Front campaign. 
Maybe it was because we were 
gathered in a shabby 1950s 
finwnfl in a small run-down 
town on a cold night, or maybe 
it was because M Jean-Marie 
Le Pen, the Front's leader, was 
enable to produce his usual 
fire and brimstone at the end 
of another exhausting day’s 
campaigning. But one had the 
feeling that the extreme right 
was running oat of steam. 

The latest polls suggest that 
the National Front will get 
between 6.5 per cent and 8 per 
cent of the vote, grring them 
15-24 seats in the assembly. 
That is certainly an achieve- 
ment for a party which has 
never had any representatives 
in Parliament, and which only 
three years ago was rarely 
polling more than 2 per cent. 

But it is nevertheless very 
disappointing for a movement 
which, swept op on a wave of 



popular revolt against the 
economic crisis, racism, fear, 
and disillusion with the tradi- 
tional political parties, was 
launched into the political 
limelight in 1984 by winning 
11 per cent in the European 
Parliament polk and which 
had hoped to get 100 seats in 
the French election on Sunday. 

Undeterred by a recent 
unfavourable polk M Le Pen is 
still going round the country 
predicting more than 15 per 
cent of the vote and between 50 
and 100 seats. He brashes 
aside the gloomy predictions 
as part of a conspiracy by the 


Government and the ‘'Gang of 
Four” — the four other main 
political parties — to “do 
down” the National Front. 

It is a theme to which he 
returns frequently. We are 
"the little men”, battling the 
totalitarian power of the state 
and the establishment, with 
(heir stranglehold on the me- 
dia. he cries. They tell lies 
about as and try to vilify’ ns. 

There are “lots of little 
men” in the packed cinema in 
Mantes-ia-Jolie in the 
Yvelines, west of Paris, and 
they appland loudly. Had they 
not'seen how the m order of the 
Socialist sympathizer by* an 
alleged National Front sup- 
porter had made headlines, 
whereas the media passed by 
in silence the murder of two 
National Front supporters by 
yoong Moroccan immigrants 
in the south of France? 

And what about the allega- 
tions against their leader of 
torture daring the Algerian 
civil war; of underhand deal- 
ings to secure a fortune from 


his late benefactor; and of 
bribery to accept a Romanian, 
who turned out to be a 
suspected Communist spy , 
among his candidates for the 
European Election? Had not 
M Le Pen won every libel suit 
against those m a ki ng such 
scurrilous charges? 

A National Frost newspa- 
per carries a front-page inter- 
view with Baroness Bich, wife 
of the founder of the Bic 
empire of pens, razors and 
cigarette lighters, who is to 
stand as a National Front 
candidate in the Yvelines part- 
ly because she is “sickened” 
by the calumnies against her 
friend, M Le Pen. 

Although most of the Na- 
tional Front support consists 
of shopkeepers, farmers, bank 
employees, directors of small 
companies and the like, M Le 
Pen also has friends in high 
places, particularly among the 
more conservative ranks of the 
French aristocracy who like 
bis ardent nationalism and 
rejection of the state tutelage. 


Nicaragua 
signs deal 
to curb the 
Contras 

From Martha Honey 
San Jose, Costa Rica 

Costa Rica and Nicaragua 
have signed an agreement 
setting up an international 
border commission to curb 
anti-Sandinisia guerrillas. 

Details were worked out at a 
day-long meeting of the depu- 
ty foreign ministers of the two 
countries and the Comadora 
countries. Mexico. Panama, 
Venezuela and Colombia. 

Civilian inspectors and se- 
curity advisers will come from 
the Contadora countries, Bra- 
zil. Peru, Uruguay and .Argen- 
tina. About 10 commission 
members and supporting se- 
curity staff will be based along 
the frontier. 

These and other countries 
are being asked to provide the 
commission with financial as- 
sistance, technical advice and 
equipment. 

The Reagan Administration 
has indicated that it opposes 
the commission, which would 
make it difficult for Nicara- 
guan Contras to operate out of 
Costa Rica. 

Contra sources say that if 
the US Congress votes addi- 
tional funds there are plans to 
increase their forces in Nicara- 
gua dramatically. 

Before becoming effective, 
the agreement must be ratified 
by the Costa Rican Parlia- 
ment where the Contras and 
the US enjoy considerable 
support The Costa Rican 
Deputy Security Minister, Se- 
nor Johnny Compos, walked 
out of Wednesday's meeting 
in protest. 

The Nicaraguan Deputy 
Foreign Minister, Seiior Vic- 
tor Tinoco, said at the signing 
ceremony that despite US 
opposition “what's important 
is that Latin America is back- 
ing this agreement very fully”. 
Nicaragua hoped to look for a 
similar agreement with Hon- 
duras. where the main Contra 
force is based. 


Strike shuts Finnish factories 


From Olli Kfrinen 
Helsinki 

Last-minute negotiations 
failed to stop a strike yester- 
day which dosed all impor- 
tant factories, threatening the 
economic development made 
by Finland over the past 
decade. 

. .The strike by the blue-collar 
union SAK is the first big one 


since metal workers went out 
in 1971. 

It began when negotiations 
between SAK. and the 
employers' union, the STK, 
were proceeding well The 
STK had presented a new 
offer during all-night negotia- 
tions but the union said it 
could not accept ft before all 
employers accepted iL : The 
STK' did not have lime to 


have its offer accepted by 
three other employers' associ- 
ations. 

Mr Pentti Somerto, the 
STK leader said that about a 
quarter of the union's million 
mem bers are actually on strike 
on behalf of other unions, 
some of which had accepted a 
centralized wages agreement 
already. 


Iraq moves on Fao 


Bahrain (Reuter) — Iraq 
claimed yesterday that an 
army column advancing along 
the Fao peninsula had cap- 
tured two key positions and 
linked with a column attack- 
ing from the west. Baghdad 
called it a major break- 
through. 

But Tehran said that Irani- 
an troops had repulsed an 
attack on their positions on 


the southern tip of the penin- 
sula. killing hundreds of Iraqis 
and capturing at least 48. The 
battle look place on the Basra 
road north of the oil port. 

Meanwhile Mr Timothy 
Renton. Minister of State at 
the Foreign Office, said here 
Britain was deeply concerned 
at the extension of Gulf 
fighting and the threat to 
Kuwait.

Greece 
jails Arab 
for attack

French hostage crisis 


From Mario Modiano 
Athens 


himself back on 
road to Damascus 


The Herat convention ad- 
journed in uproar early yester- 
day with Mr Ariel Sharon, the 
rogue elephant of The party, 
alone emerging relatively un- 
harmed from three days and 
nights of near constant vindic- 
tive abuse among the leaders. 

A real question mark must 
now hang over how long the 
party leader. Mr Yitzhak 
Shamir, can survive as Prime 
Minister if he takes over in 
October under the terms of the 
present coalition agreement 
with Labour. 

Mr Shamir had spent most 
of the convention on the 
sidelines of the often violent 
arguments. Laie on Wednes- 
day. as the forces of Mr 
Sharon and his ally. Mr David 
Levj. threatened to sweep all 
before them. Mr Shamir tried 
to speak to save both his 
political career and the mid- 
dle-class. traditional stan- 
dards he stands for. 

Bui his microphone oratory 
scarcely rose above the roars 
of chanting delegates. It was 
only by contriving a way of 
adjourning proceedings indef- 
initely that he managed to end 
a destructive performance by 
the various pretenders io the 
role of Mr Menaehem Begin as 
ruler of Herat and of Israel. 

The scene for the final 
session was set by the result of 
the vote for chairman of the 
convention mandate commit- 
tee between Mr Sharon and 
Mr Binyamin Begin, son of 
the former undisputed leader. 
Since the Shamir camp had 
narrowly carried the day in the 


election for convention chair- 
man. Mr Begin started as 
favourite. But that was be- 
cause Mr Sharon’s charisma 
and ability to fight against the 
odds had been discounted. 

In the end he won convinc- 
ingly. securing the right to 
appoint new convention dele- 
gates. Thai was a right which 
would enable him to ensure 


victory for Mr Levy against 
the Shamir candidate in the 
election for chairman of the 
policy-making steering com- 
mittee. It was the battle to stop 
this that forced Mr Shamir to 
contrive an end to the pro- 
ceedings. 

Before that happened both 
he and Mr Levy had outbid 
each other in hurling insults. 
Mr Levy was described by his 
leader as “a criminal” and 
jaicr as “a man driven by 
megalomania”. Mr Levy said 
that Mr Shamir's behaviour 
was better suited to 
Disneyland. 

Mr Sharon managed to 
stand aside from the slanging 
match and to appeal directly 
to delegates of both camps on 
the basis of his past reputa- 
tion. 

The chief protagonists now 
have to rally support before 
the convention is recalled in a 
few weeks to try again to 
choose its leaders and then 
discuss policies. Mr Shamir 
can expect to stay on to be 
Prime Minister. But he will 
have to bring both Mr Levy 
and Mr Sharon into his Cabi- 
net to hold the party together. 



An Arab, aged 25, has been 
sentenced fay a Greek court to 
10 Vt years' imprisonment af- 
ter an abortive attempt to 
assassinate a senior Jordanian 
diplomat in Athens in 1984. 

The man, identified by his 
Moroccan passport as Axnar 
Mabroulti, was found guilty of 

illegal possession and use of a 

weapon, but the court accepted 
mitigating orcmnstances be- 
cause u he had not acted out of 
base motives.*'

A despondent Mr Shamir pondering the results of the 
convention and the revolt against his leadership. 


CmrictioBS of Arab terror- 
> ists in, Greece have been rare 
and this development was seen 
as a sign of die Greek 
Government's declared inten- 
tion to co-operate with the 
West in counter-terrorism. 

Mr Asshn Qntieshat, the 
Jordanian Minister-Counsel- 
lor, told the court he recog- 
nized the defendant as the man 
who had tried to kill him on 
November 29, 1984 as be left 
the Jordanian Embassy in a 
car with his two children. 

The man's gun had appar- 
ently jammed and he escaped 
on foot leaving behind a rented 
motor scooter which eventual- 
ly led to his arrest the follow- 
ing day m a train beaded for 
Yugoslavia. Police witnesses 
said the defendant was a 
Palestinian connected with the 
Black September organ iza- 
tion. 

Mr MabroHki, who spent IS 
months in prison awaiting i 
trial, denied the charges and 
claimed he had come to Greece 
as a tourist and borrowed the 
scooter from an Arab friend. 

Two Palestinians and one 
Libyan are in Greek jails 
awaiting trial on terrorism- 
related charges. 


Hostage negotiators tradi- 
tionally have a long travail in 
Lebanon and Dr Razah 
Raad's odyssey around Leba- 
non and Syria These past four 
davs has been no different. 

After having originally 
planned to fly home to Paris 
from Beirut yesterday, he was 
back on the mad to Damascus 
m the afternoon to seek 
further Syrian help in his 
efforts to free a four-roan 
French television crew, two 
French diplomats and a jour- 
nalist being held hostage in 
Beirut 

Apparently still without 
proof that the Islamic Jihad 
kidnappers have killed M 
Michel Seurat, the French 
researcher whom they claimed 
to have murdered last week. 
Dr Raad has not even re- 
vealed whether the four televi- 
sion employees will he freed 
soon. He said only that he had 
made “tangible progress” in 
his talks with leading Shia 
' Muslims in Beirut. 

President Saddam 
Hussein's pardon for the two 
Iraqi opponents of his regime 
whose deportation from Paris 
provoked Islamic Jihad's 
claim to have killed M Seurat 
has not, therefore, had any 
immediate effect on Dr 
Raad’s negotiations. He was 
quoted in the Beirut newspa- 
per an-Nahar as saying that a 
deal was “in the works” and 
that “consultations now focus 
on formalities, which are no 
less important than the 
substance”. 

Indeed they are. ft is almost 
certain that Dr Raad will have 
to pay some public tribute to 
Syria for its help in the 
negotiations — such courtesies

here are to achieve success - 
but this still does not explain 
his sudden departure for Da-

say the return, to France of the 
two Iraqis, who were expelled 
Iasi month, was a necessary 
condition for the release of the 
French hostages but was not 
necessarily a sufficient condi- 
tion.

also demanded the repayment

Shooting 
denounced 
by lawyer 


Wiser to wait for . 
Moscow*s signals 


From Michael Hornsby 
Joha nne s burg - 
AJobamtesburg lawyer, Mr 
Laurence Tonkin, declared 
yesterday that /there was no 
apparent justification for a 
police decision to open fire on 
a crowd of Made schoolchil- 
dren last Tuesday outside foe 
Kabokweni magistrate’s 
court, near White Rrver. in foe 
eastern Transvaal 
j 7 Mr Tonkin witnessed the' 
incident in which at least one 
pupil was killed and many 
were wounded. He said the 
crowd was “very angry” but 
not uncontrollable. Contrary : 
to police claims, he heard na 
polios order to disperse nor 
anything “to justify the view | 
that the shooting was the last \ 
resort available. ” i 

A police captain asked to | 
speak to the leaders of the 
crowd. Mr Tonkin said he I 


persuaded six people to come 
forward, and had gone with 


forward, and had gone with 
them to find the captain when 
foe shooting started. 

“I was at that stage near foe 
police and 1 cowered, clutch- 
ing to myself two of the 
leaders. I was aware of chil- 
dren scrambling away from 
foe police. After the shooting, 
the area was littered with 
groaning pupils. 


“I was deeply shocked by 
what had happened and I 
burst into tears.” 

The Minister of Law and 
Order, Mr Louis Le Grange, 
yesterday ordered the Com- 
missioner of Police, General 
Johan Coetzee, to investigate. 

In Alexandra, foe black 
ghetto in northern Johannes- 
burg, a black policeman was 
shot dead on Wednesday by 
white police, according to a 
member of the .township's 
community council, Mr L. C 
Koza. 


Itmay sound cooc2i*tory to 
suggest that they maybe kept 
for. foe meantime. But Mr 
Gorbachov is making this 
offer only oh condition that 
they are not mo der n iz e d. To 
fasist on the deterrents becom- 
ing ohsoksoeot fa fa fact 
tougher than demanding straw 
compensation for foefr contin- 
ued existence. .- - 

Mr Ferie regards this as a 
sign that foe Soviets are 
simply not interested in an 
anas settlement. Others, it 
seems to me more wisely, wait 
to see what signals come from 
Moscow now tW tbeCoramu- 
■ nist Party -Congress fa over. 
Bat nobody in foe administra- 
tion seems to believe & -foe 
likelihood of swift progress'll 
Geneva. 

This does not, however, rule 
ont another summit this year. 
What it means is that a second 
meeting between President 
Reagan and Mr Gorbachov 
would agate be essentiaOy 
atmospheric. The Soviet 
leader's visit to foe United 
States weald become a tourist 
spectacular. The “fireside 
snnumT' would be succeeded 
by “Gorbachov in 
Disneyland”. 

This would not worry foe 
Americans. They are accus- 
tomed to atmospheric politics, 
believing that in public life 
appearances have a reality of 
their own. It is an art form at 
which Mr Reagan excels, and 
for once foe US could not be 
accused by its allies of block- 
ing the path to peace.

OVERSEAS NEWS 



^Enm Mkfrael Hunton 
Colombo J 

.A Sri UB lan Govern- 
Toent yesterday unilateraUv 
StoppgLthe aenal bombing of 
rebel lndeouls m the Nortem 
Province. 

. Tbt move'has been seen as 
reaction to recent criticism 
that it was not serious about 
seeking a peaceful political 
rotation to the ethnic crisis in 
the - stand. 

^ Making the announcement 
Mr LaEth AthulathmudalL 
the Minister for National 
Security, said that in return 
the government expected the 
rebels to. stop moving men 
and materials across the Palk 
Strait from India. 

A Sri Lankan official said: 
"If the cessation takes place, 
the bombing halt will continue 
for another week and soon the 

aim will be to generate a full 
ceasefire after one month. 
And then we shall be prepared 
to talk to any individual or 
group about a political 
solution.” 

An official government 
statement yesterday empha- 
sized the point by reiterating 
"its firm and unqualified com- 
mitment to a political resolu- 
tion of the current ethnic 
problem in Sri Lanka”: 

The statement said the gov- 
ernment believed that such a 
resolution "must rest upon 
reconciling and fulfilling the 
aspirations as wefl as remov- 
ing the fears and concerns of 
aO sections of our people.” 

It also declared that the 
government "appreciates the 


stops bombing rebel camps 



Tamil guerrilla fighters 
troops. They have been 

continuing good offices of the 
Government of India”. 

The indirect negotiations of 
Mr Romesh Bhandari, the 
senior dvfl servant in the 
Indian Foreign Ministry, be- 
tween the Sri Lankan Govern- 
ment and the militant groups 
seeking to enforce a separate 
Tamil state in the north and 
east of the island, ground to a 
halt last month when the Sri 
Lankans replied to proposals 
from the Tamils, h is expected 
that develop men is since then 
will enable Mr Bhandari to 


AK-47 rifles while returning to their camp near Jaffna after a battle with government 
’ upon to stop moving materials from India in response to Sri Lanka's bombing halt. 


restart negotiations. 

The Sn Lankan announce- 
ment was made against a 
background of escalating dip- 
lomatic ill-feeling with India 
over the halting of the 
Bhandari mission. The bar- 
rage of criticism included 
some bitter remarks from Mr 
B.R. Bhagat, the Indian For- 
eign Minister, in parliament 
and culminated in a statement 
from Mr Rajiv Gandhi, the 
Indian Prime Minister, virtu- 
ally washing his hands of the 
Sn Lankans. 


In an interview with a 
Calcutta daily newspaper, Mr 
Gandhi said: “Now we don’t 
want them to talk to us. We 
want them to talk (directly) 
with the Tamils”. 

Mr Gandhi expressed his 
disappointment with what 
had been achieved in the talks 
so far by saying that moves by 
the Sri Lankan Government 
"come too late, are loo small, 
and more needs to be done". 

The Sri Lankans are now 
offering to resettle refugees in 
certain mixed areas of the 


country in answer to an issue 
frequently raised by India. 
The first settlement will take 
place around Vavouniya. un- 
der the auspices of the local 
government agent. Mr 
Athulathmudali said: "The 
people there have lived to- 
gether for five or six hundred 
years or longer and . . . often 
think of themselves not sim- 
ply as Tamils or Sinhalese but 
as Vavouniyans”. 

If the first resettlement is 
successful, the experiment will 
be repeated in other areas. 


Sydney 
may get 
harbour 
tunnel 

Sydney (Reuter) - Mr Nev- 
ille Wran, the Premier of Ne» 
South Wales, yesterday an- 
nounced a feasibility study 
into a plan to build a four-lane 
13-mile tunnel under Sydney 
Harbour. 

Mr Wran said the SAas350 
million (about £160 millioa) 
plan called for the tunnel to be 
built by the early 1990s. 

It would be built in steel 
sections in a trench beside the 
50-year-old Harbour Bridge 
and wonld ran from Lavender 
Bay, in the north, to the 
Rocks. 

It would use existing access 
roads and not affect any 
buildings. In 1982, four plans 
for another harbour crossing 
to complement the bridge were 
abandoned because they were 
environmentally unacceptable. 

Mr Wran said the latest 
plan was mapped out by a 
consortium of the Australian 
Transfield Engineering Com- 
pany and the Japanese 
Kmnagai Garni construction 
firm, with Westpac Banking 
Corporation organizing the fi- 
nance. 

Mr Laurie Brereton. the 
state Minister for Public 
Works, Ports and Roads, said 
the bridge tell would more 
than double next year and by 
1989 wonld be five times the 
present amount. 


Britons at risk as 
riot hostages 
in Thai jail ‘war’ 


From Neil Kelly, Bangkok 


Some 100 Western prison- 
ers. including 11 Britons, ^are 
in the frontline of the "war” in 
Thailand's jails, which have 
been the scene of three violent 
rebellions in the past seven 
months. Thai prisoners have 
earned them that they will be 
•■hijacked" and used as hos- 
tages in the next prison rioL 

The warnings are being 
taken seriously because of 
heavy loss of life in the recent 
riots.* Officially 30 prisoners 
and three warders were killed, 
but well-informed prison visi- 
tors say the death toll was 
much higher. 

Several Western embassies 
have told the Thai Govern- 
ment that they are worried 
about the safety of their 
nationals. Although officials 
brash aside these fears, they 
have made changes inside the 
Bang Kwang maximum secu- 
rity prison just outside Bang- 
kok. The Western prisoners 
have been segregated in one 
section for greater safety in an 
emergency. 

Those Westerners who re- 
fused to join last year's riots at 
Bang Kwang and helped extin- 
guish fires started by the 
rioters are most at risk. 

For the first lime warders at 
the prison are receiving riot 
control training and specially- 


trained dogs have been 
brought in to back them up. 

Bang Kwang is regarded as 
one of the most brutal jails in 
Asia. Men there have been 
convicted of the most serious 
crimes and about 300 are 
under sentence of death. 

Only one Briton. John Sin- 
clair Western, aged 31. is 
imprisoned at Bang Kwang. 
He has served almost six years 
of a 33-year sentence for 
attempted heroin trafficking. 
The other Britons are at a jail 
for shorter-term prisoners. 

Overcrowding is a serious 
problem in all Thai jails. A 
Thai criminologist said: "The 
living space for one inmate is 
equal to that needed to lie on 
one's side." Another factor in 
the current unrest is the lack of 
a clearly defined and compre- 
hensive parole system. 

Several countries, including 
the United States, have signed 
treaties with Thailand permit- 
ting the repatriation of long- 
term prisoners ro serve the 
bulk of their sentences in their 
own countries, but the Thai 
Parliament has not yet ratified 
the treaties. 

Britain has had preliminary 
discussions about a treaty but 
British officials have indicated 
that they do not regard its 
completion as an urgent mat- 
ter. 


Troubles pile up for Bolivia 

Austerity erodes 
unions’ power 

From John Enders, La Paz 


Two days of peaceful pro- 
test have ended in Bolivia and 
it has become increasingly 
dear that the country's tradi- 
tional ly-powerful trade union 
organizations mil have to do 
much more if they intend to 
force changes mPresjdent Paz 
Estenssoro’s tough austerity 
programme. 

Workers, students, teachers 
and housewives marched 
through La Paz — 20.000 on 
Tuesday and about half that 
on Wednesday — to protest 
against budget cuts, the, freeze 
$ in public sector wages and the 
resulting recession which has 
hit since Dr Paz Estenssoro 
came to power last autumn. 

The once all-nowerfiil Cen- 
tral Obrero Boliviano; (Bohy- 
ian Workers' Central),. '■<be" 
national labour confederation, 
called the nationwide day of 
protest to show opposition to 
low salaries, high prices and 
the Government's programme 
in general. 

That programme was de- 
signed to cut the hyper-infla- 
tionary spiral during which 
inflation totalled more than 
8,000 per cent last year and 
reached an annual rate of 


about 24,000 per cent last 
summer. 

The confederation, howev- 
er, refrained from calling pub- 
licly for a general strike, since 
its leaders are. now aware that 
their following is not what it 
once was. Public sector work- 
ers are forbidden from staying 
away to lake part in such 
actions, and wages in the 
private sector are not as low as 
in state enterprises. 

There was a minor confron- 
tation in La Paz on Wednes- 
day with some.tear gas fired by 
police, but even in mining 
regions the protest was report- 
edly peaceful. 

The Government says it 
will keep, public sector wages 
frozen at 30 million pesos a 
month (£10.9 million) until 
theend ofMay- The country is 
desperately negotiating -a $50 
million (£34 million) standby 
credit anti a $100. million 
compensatory credit facility 
with: the International Mone- 
tary Fund. 

The Planning Minister, Se- 
der Gonzalo .Sanchez de 
Lozada, has said Bolivia needs 
about $300 million in foreign 
aid this year to keep the 
austerity plan on track and re- 
activate the economy.

a rough patch 


A ssuming that you are not 
vourself a fanatical devo- 
tee of the chamois-lined 
crotch and the bnotted- 
siring. legs, can you name a single 
cun-ent British cycling champion? 
No. neither could I. but they do 
exist One of them even holds the 
title oflron Man of Europe, and she 
is a woman. 

Outside its own devotees, all 
gritted teeth and hunched pain, 
competitive cycling has never quite 
caught the British public imagina- 
tion. Its heroes and champions 
remain largely unsung outside their 
own arcane world, never having 
enjoyed the media exposure that 
can elevate the jousting knights of 
the once even more obkure art of 
snooker into national figures. 

But that may be about to change. 
Channel Four, encouraged by view- 
ing figures of 2 million for its late- 
night reports of the Tour de France 
last year, is repeating the exercise 
this "summer, but at early evening 
peak time. The BBC is promoting 
its bicycling radio fat man. Tom 
Vernon, to a television series. The 
Milk Race - small beer by world 
standards but the best we have — 
will for the first time this year stage 
a crowd-pulling big finish of 40 
circuits around central London. 

A series of round-the-streets races 
in provincial towns sponsored by 
Kellogg's cornflakes has generated 
respectable crowds. Later this year 
British cinemagoers are likely to be 
offered American Flyers, starring 
Dustin Hoffman as a professional 
cvclist in the Tour de France. 

That the profile of the bicycle 


Today Raleigh, Britain’s biggest bicycle manufacturer, hopes to announce a deal 
with its workforce to slim down its troubled Nottingham factory after several 
years of dramatically declining sales. Yet it seems only yesterday that the Raleigh 
team was toasting victory in cycling’s most glittering prize, the Tour de France. 
Alan Hamilton charts the changing fortune of the British bike industry 


should be rising, albeit slowly, is a 
matter of major importance for the 


British cycle industry, fighting 
cheap imports in a market which 
has fallen by a third in two years. It 
regards its future as being heavily 


dependent on the humble bike 
coming to be seen as an instrument 
of positive leisure rather than of 
cheapskate transport, a machine to 
be actively enjoyed rather than 
dragged from the shed only when 
you can't be bothered to walk the 
whippets. 

In 1983. 2.3 million bicycles were 
sold in Briiain; by last year the 
market had tumbled to 1.5 million, 
and the biggest sufferer by far was 
Raleigh. The shrinkage is due 
overwhelminglv to the collapse of 
the BMX (bicycle moto-cross) craze 
which has gone the way of the 
huiahoop and the skateboard with 
frightening speed. At the height of. 
the fad. 800.000 of the tough, 
chunky children’s stunt bikes were 
being sold each year, and the great 
majority of those made in Britain 
came from Raleigh. 

But Raleigh was in trouble even 
before BMX arrived to keep its 64- 
aerc Nottingham factory occupied. 
The return of the Conservative 
government in 1979 pushed up 
interest rates and strengthened ster- 
ling. and the company found itself 
priced out of export markets. Even 
the United States, where it had been 
selling 250.000 bicycles a year, had 
to be abandoned entirely. 

It shed labour and re-equipped its 
plant with the intention of defend- 
ing the home market and exporting 
to Europe. But by 1984 the £6 
million computer-controlled paint 
and assembly operation was causing 


major technical problems, and an- 
other 800 workers had to go. Late 
last year it called in a team of 
management consultants from 
McKinsey and their conclusions, 
some likely to be revealed today, are 
almost certain to say that Raleigh is 
still far too big. and its working 
practices outmoded. Recently Ra- 
leigh has even been forced to 
abandon sponsorship of the most 
successful cycle racing team in 
Europe when the balance sheet 
showed that keeping 30 riders on 
the professional circuit was costing 
£1 million a year. 


depressed market, and smaller com- 
panies with their own niche in the 
market, like the respected Dawes 
marque with 30.000 sales a year, are 
faring much better, they are the 
Jaguars to Raleigh's Austin Rover. 
The only sector of the entire cycle 
market to show an increase last year 
was touring and sports bikes in the 
£200-£400 range. This week, for the 
first time in several years, British 
manufacturers are represented at 
the important New York bicycle 
show. 


to happen in the country at large. 
Bikes still suffer from an image 
problem among the majority. 

“The industry's future lies m 
value, not volume. The firms who 
will do well are those who do mo st 
to identify their customers precise- 
ly. Even Raleigh are getting better at 
it; their 1986 range is of good 
quality, and well targeted at ihe 
health and fitness market.” 


t was a decision taken with 
great regret; Team Raleigh has 
won more Tour de France 


JSL trophies than any other team. 
Steven Bell of Raleigh explained: 


“AH that money and publicity was 
bringing us virtually no benefit in 
the crucial home market We have 
frankly been disappointed that cycle 
racing has not generated more 
interest in Britain.” 

No other British manufacturer 
approaches Raleigh's size. 
Holdsworthy, which has taken over 
the old Marlboro marque, claims to 
be second biggest, with just over 1 00 
workers producing 100,000 units a 
year from its Black Country plant 
Elswick Falcon on Humberside 
claims about 8 per cent of the 
market but of tbe 120,000 units it 
sells in a year, half are imported. 

But there are bright spots in a 


One saviour has been what is in 
effect no more than a BMX for 
grown-up children, the mountain 
bike or ATB - all-terrain bicycle - 
consisting of a standard but 
strengthened frame and fat chunky 
tv res. Yuppies and city commuters 
are taking to it enthusiastically 
because its design belps to iron out 
the spine-janing jolts of manhole 
covers and cobbles, and the makers 
of saddles are finally cottoning on to 
the fact that women's bottoms are 
designed differently from men’s. 

According to Nick Rearden of 
Bicycle magazine: “The mountain 
bike is helping to show that cyding 
is fun. There will probably not be 
another fed like BMX, but there is 


certainly a trend, and it involves 
healthy living and outdoor pursuits. 
Cycling as a positive leisure pursuit 
is certainly growing among the 
young upwardly mobile, but what 
happens in Hampstead is not likely 


P eugeot, who made bikes 
before they made cars, 
understand the British mar- 
ket and are among the most 
successful importers. But it is a very 
different market from the Conti Den- 
ial one.“In Europe, the bicycle has 
always been a natural and integral 
part "of the way of life, another 
consumer item to be bought, used 
and thrown away", says 
Rearden.“The Continentals will

It is a long way from the garden 
shed to the triathlon, a preposter- 
ously punishing activity which in- 
volves swimming, riding and 
running over lung-bursting dis- 
tances: it is a growing sport, even 
finding favour among many tradi- 
tional athletes, and the cycle indus- 
try hopes that it will catch on 
sufficiently as a spectator activity to 
stimulate tbe populace at large into 
participation. Three years ago there 
were only 20 British cycling profes- 
sionals; now there are 60.

NAME 


ADDRESS 


T here is something pain- 
fully flawless about 
Jackson Browne's ap- 
pearance. Tanned and slender, 
he wears a grey-blue shirt, 
grey jeans and sneakers. His 
face is boyish, though he is 
now 37 and it is 14 years since 
his first album. A Californian 
background and rock’n’roll 
are clearly good for yon. 

He is the clean-cat maestro 
of American popular music. 
Since 1972 he has produced a 
stream of successful records 
and retained an unusually 
stable and convincing reputa- 
tion. Browne is not cut oat for 
the complexities of Bob Dylan 
or the ironies of Randy New- 
man, but he will always be able 
to produce rousing anthems or 
haunting ballads. 

Much of. the air of neat 
perfection vanishes in conver- 
sation. He frequently appears 
puzzled and worried; with his 
legs crossed, he compulsively 
poshes the ends of his shoe- 
laces in and out of the air- 
holes in bis sneakers. His 
problem seems to be finding 
the answer to the question: 
Just how serious is Jackson 
Browne? One moment he is 
praising the whole artificial 
idea of Sigue Signe Sputnik as 
“refreshing” and the next he is 
agonizing about tbe identity of 
America. And his latest album 
— Lives in the Balance — is an 
almost relentlessly political 
tract which’ harks quaintly 
back to the "committed” rock 
of the 1960s. 

The album is the prodnet of 
almost three years of sus- 
tained political activity for 



time a president lied. The 
Vietnam war did serious dam- 
age ami now people are trying 
to rewrite history with a couple 
of pop movies — Rambo was 
just a way of trying to pretend 
we won that war. So the 
movies can't tell the troth bat 
music can. Yeah, I suppose 
they are protest songs — that’s 
a very lonely phrase.” 


Browne: “Movies can’t tell the 
truth but music can" 


Browne — "it began when 
there was a lot of fuss about a 
song 1 had written which was 
kind of sarcastic about 
Yuppies. Then a writer asked 
me why I was making these 
jokes - why didn’t I just go out 
there and speak directly about 
what was going on.” 

He began reading widely, 
and even provided music for 
national lecture tours that 
attacked the iniquities of 
American foreign policy. He 
spent time in Nicaragua. And 
it was in Managua in early 
1984 that he sang the first 
verse of “For America”, the 
opening song on die album. 


B ut this level of serious- 
ness was at odds with an 
instinct that told Browne 
to avoid a posture that implied 
he was pompously ignoring the 
fun of life. Hence the slightly 
self-conscious endorsement of 
Britain's latest home-grown 
'hype, Spotnik.“Well hr is re- 
freshing to treat it all as a joke 
sometimes. I mean I don't 
believe that a lot of these 
heavy metal groups in the 
States are serious - they've 
got to be kidding.” 


Browne was speaking in 
London on his way to perform 
in Germany. A British tour 
has been put off until the 
autumn — be ran oat of time 
malting the album. Tbe tour 
will be successful, for Browne 
appeals to an English genera- 
tion that grew up believing 
there was an outside chance 
the world was changing and 
that rock was the instrument 
of that change. Almost every- 
body lost faith in tbe idea bat 
Browne never did. 

“I think music does have 
power to change people. It 
changed my life. And I do 
think that rock music has 
taken the place of the church — 
people get a lot of their ideas 
and express themselves 
through rock. It gives people 
valnes.”

verse was all I had to sing. I 
write very slowly - the song 
wasn’t even finished by the

Browne had grown to feel 
that only rock mnsic was 
capable of dramatizing the 
issues. “1 think Americans

streak but there are certain 
realities we are not coming to 
terms with. 1 think it’s impor-

* S'- 


divers working for a South 
African salvage firm wrested 
24 gold coins from tne 
recently discovered, undis- 
turbed stem section, reviving 
speculation that the ship may 

have been carrying some 
240.000 gold sovereigns. Tbe 

Birkenhead occupies a special 

and sentimental place in the 
• ynnak of beTOISm 31 SC3. Site 
is not just another potential 
underwater treasure trove. 

The 1,900-ton vessel^ set 
sail for South Africa from 
Cork on January 7, -1852. 
Intended originally to be a 
frigate, she was one of tne 
first warships to have a him 
of iron, and was powe red fry 
steam-driven paddle wheels 
in addition to sails. .After 
taking on coal anil provisions 
at Simonstown, on the Cape 
peoisula, she put to sea ajpm 
on February 25 with 638 
people on board. 

These included 476 British 
soldiers bound for the 8th 
“Kaffir War” in the Eastern 
Cape, and some 20 women 
and children. Possi bly ow ing 
to compass error or treacher- 
ous currents, the Birkenhead 
kept to dose to the shore and 
ran on to a rock off Danger 
Point, some 50 miles south- 
east of the Cape of Good 
Hope. • ' 

The captain attempted to 
get the ship off the rock by 
putting the engines into re- 
verse, a manoeuvre .which 
merely succeeded in "ripping 
the bottom out of the vessel, 
dooming most of those , rax 
board to death by drowning. 

The ship had eight boats, 
but they wereall lashed to the 
paddle-housings and had 
been so little used that their 
rigging was ; dogged with 
paint and the davftsjaxnmed. 
Only three boats could be 
lowered into the water, and 
thqr quickly .filled, with the 
women and children. 

Knowing they would 
swamp ihe. boats if they tried 
; io. scramble aboard as well, 
the -troops. remained calmly 
on. -the ^Birkenhead, and, .ao-. 
cording to - k^end, did not 
eyeh break ranks .when' tun- 
nel and main mast crashed 
onto the deck. Moments lat- 
er, the ship, went down with 
•the loss of 445. lives. The 
soldiers’ stoic behaviour gave 
rise to the tradition of "wom- 
en and children first", still 
known, as . the Birkenhead 
Drill 

■ The ship’s assistant master, 
who survived the disaster, is 
said to have told a Board of 


Enquir y in 1853 flat site bad 
740, 000 gold sovereigns OO 
board to pay, foe troops, 
though many , naval histori- 
ans alwavs doubted this. 
U nsuccessful attempts to re- 
cover the gold were made in 
1854, 1893, and IMS. 

Permission for the current 
salvage operation was given 
m January of fa* year to 
South African Nauonal Mon- 
uments Council. • The 
council's director. Dr .Chns 
Loedotif, maintains that the 
wreck has been abandoned 
for years, and fosttire British 
i-an have no chum to its 
contents. Under tire agree- 
ment wrth tire couadL the 

divers are exititfed to baJFof 

whatever .they salvage* and 
the South African- gpvem- 
HKnigets.the.resL ; .

African territorial . waters be- 


longs to SopA- Africa. The 


however, that Britain stiffhas

head and its contents. "We 
have. never abandoned the 
wreck”, a spokesman for the 
British Btibasw ' in ' Cape 
Town said. “A British bot- 
tom remains a British bottom 
wherever it is: We are also 
anxious that there should . be 
no disturbance of a war 
teave”. • - 
Mr H.B. Zndc.. a. Ope 
Town numismatist,' who has 
examined ■ some of the ’24 
coins recovered so fir. says 
they are in excellent condi- 
tion and dun at least two of 
them — an 1837 WjJliam IV 
and a 1850 Victoria - may 
never have been in circula- 
tion. • 4 ‘ 

The recovered coins, ' £1 
when the ship wem down, 
would at today's gold price 
have an individual value of 
about R170 (about £60). Ac- 
cording to Mr Zuck, howev- 
er, collectors would be 
prepared to pay . between 
R500 *nd RZ50B "each for 
.fo# n. Dr Andrew Smith, 
professor of archaeojpgy at 
Cape Town University, said 
he was "totally against this 
kind of plundering of cultural 
resources for button”. 

" Dr Sibith said the South 
African National Monument 
Council had no diver on Its 
staff and thus had no way of 
“controUingwhat the salvag- 
ers are doing underwater” .

. breakdown of the marriage ihaLthey 
may be unable to leave the second 
marriage in peace. There may be 
constant phone calls, reminders of 
*be past, pressures brought to bear 
on subjects like money or children. 
And there is no doubt that when the 
children froth the first marriage are 
present .in the second — the Cinder- 

- ella syndrome— this can be a source 
of continuous conflict” 

Zelda West-Meads of the Nation- 
al Marriage Guidance Council 
points out that many couples with 
children are too optimistic about 
creating an instant family through 
. remarriage. “The .reality is that it 

- takes a long time. Not only. have the . 
couple , to try to fonn a new 
-relationship — and that’s difficult 
enough — but, unlike a first mar- 
riage. there are other family mem- 
bers involved. Children may resent 
having to share a parent A wife may 
want her new husband to love her 
children and be may not be able to." 

She also notes the dangers in- 
volved in men marrying their 
mistresses, or wives their lovers. 
“Sometimes people go straight into 
a second marriage from their first 
The person they marry is the person 
who ‘broke up* the first marriage. 
-Yet often foe ‘other woman* or the 
‘other man* is what we call a 
transitional person, someone who 
. enables you to get out of an 
unsatisfactory marriage. If you mar- 
ry. This person straight away, you 
.start from a position of 
disadvantage.” . ... 

R ay is 47 and has been 
divorced twice. A self- 
employed garden design- 
er, he seems still rather 
puzzled by his marital history. “I 
got married for foe first time when I 
was 21 and That marriage lasted 17 
years. I felt that after the first few 
years my wifejnst stopped trying. 
She didn't want to -have parties, to • 
got out. Then after 12 years I 
discovered she had been having an 
affair with a business colleague. I 
stayed with the marriage because of 
the children. but in fhe^end I felt I 
'couldn't stand it any longer. I met a 
gill 15 years younger than me who. . 
was more on my wavelength. For 
years I had thought about nothing 
else but holding things together. 

: Finally 1 just thought: ‘what's foe 
point? There’s my hfe, too*. " 

“I folt Td had a raw deal from 
marriage and did not want to many 
again, but my girlfriend did. We had 
an octremely happy relationship — . 
when wemet she wanted fim out of ■

went I was completely devastated. 
The first divorce simply came down 
to goods and chattels, but the 
second tune I felt 1 was a failure.” 
Ray has married again — a divorcee 
aged 40 whom he met through a 
computer dating agency. This lime, 
he says, things will work out. 

Penny, on the other hand, has no 
desire to marry again. At present 
going through her second divorce at 
the age of 36, she says: “After 
having a year on my own, I don't 
think I could accept having to 
account for my actions to someone 
else again. I suppose the failure of 
both my marriages are related in 
some ways. Both my husbands were 


the same type of men — rather 
selfish and stubborn — although I 
didn't realize that at first. 

“I married when I was 19 and 
stayed married for 1 1 years. We had 
reached a kind of stalemate where 
we just didn't get on. In fact, my 
husband was having an affair 
although I didn't know that until 
after we had separated. Seven 
months after the divorce came 
through I married a man who bad 
been a family friend. Looking back, 
I think a lot of it was a search for se- 
curity. 1 felt very alone and I had 
three young children. I couldn't get 
out much, and he used to come 
round. It was nice to have someone 


there - but it wasn't the right reason 
to marry. It look me three years to 
realize it. He walked out in the end 
but it was probably as much my 
feult as his." 

Some experts would say that the ! 
seeds of failure were sown in Ray's ! 
and Penny's second marriage from 
the start, because they married for 
the “wrong' reasons:' Ray under 
pressure from a girlfriend whose 
long-term view of marriage turned 
out to be very different from his 
own: Penny out of desire for 
security and a fear of loneliness. 

But those same experts would 
point out that when second mar- 
riages work out, they can be far 
better and deeper than the mar- 
riages that preceded them. Zelda 
West-Meads says: “In a second 
marriage you are usually older, with 
more life experience behind you. 
You have changed and developed 
and are more at ease with yourself 
as a person." 

O f the single men who 
marry for the first time 
between the ages of 20 and 
24. 39 percent are likely to 
get divorced. For the divorced man 
who remarries at the same age, the 
figure is 58 per cent. But if a man 
does not embark upon his second 
marriage until he is between 35 and 
39. then this marriage has only a 32 
per cent chance of failure. In other 
words, he is more likely to make a 
success of his second marriage than 
a man 10 years his junior will make 
of his firsL 

The same tendency can be seen in 
women. Single women who marry 
between the ages of 20 and 24 record 
a 32 per cent failure rate, divorced 
women who remarry at the same ; 
age, a 54 per cent one. But a 
divorced woman who remarries 
when she is in her late 30s faces 
better odds: the divorce rate in this 
category is only 27 per cent. Despite 
the overall picture, second mar- 
riages are by no means doomed 
from the start. 


Surviving the 
threat of AIDS 


ONE COUPLE’S RECIPE FOR SUCCESS 


Sarah and Clive Buckley, from 
Abingdon in Oxfordshire, are deter- 
mined to make their second mar- 
riage work. Sarah first married 
when she was 23, Clive when be was 
25. Sarah's first marriage lasted five 
yean, Clive's 10. When they mar- 
ried each other 18 months ago, each 
had spent some time alone; Sarah 
was then 30 and Oive 38. 

Sarah says: “If yon leave one' 
marriage to marry someone else, 
that most he fraught with all lands 
of difficulties. But we knew that oar 
first marriages were well and truly 
dead. My daughter adores Cfive mi 
ClrveVson is just glad his Dad is 
happy. Just because you love some- 
one doesn't mean yon will love their 
children br that they will love yon, so- ' 
anything's a bonus. 

"I want this marriage to work. I 
think, in the end, it boils down to 



Buckleys and daughter 
determined to succeed 

give and take. You have to be honest 
with . yourself, ask why you are 
getting married. I can remember 
being a bag of. nerves when it was 
getting close to the wedding day 
trying to work ont if I was just 
marrying for security, if I was 
jumping out of foe frying pan into 
the fire. I tried to analyse it, but in 
the end it jnst felt right" 


Clive says: “If something goes 
wrong with a first marriage there is 
a danger of haring emotional and 
psychological scars which yon find 
difficult to leave behind when yon go 
on to another marriage. I like to 
think I was able to go into a second 
marriage in a calm frame of mind. 
Haring two years or so on my own 
before meeting Sarah helped. 

“Divorce didn't put me off mar- 
riage. I felt things couldn't be as bad 
as that first experience. And a lot of 
things I went through in foe first 
marriage were helpfuL I was able to 
refine my thoughts about what 
marriage meant, foe importance of 
being honest with each other, work- 
ing together as a team. I think the 
lessons you can learn from the 
breakdown of a first marriage can 
help yon make a success of your 
second.” 


4 August 30, 1985 was 
one of the few sunny 
days in a pretty appall- 
ing summer. 1 shall 
remember (hat day for 
as long as I live. It was a day 
when my heart stopped, my 
blood froze, and 1 physically 
shook for the first time in my 
life. 

At approximately 10.50 in 
the morning a pleasant, be- 
spectacled woman doctor told 
me that I was an AIDS- 
carrier, or to be more precise 
that I had been diagnosed as 
positive in a test for HTLV-III 
antibodies. 

Four weeks before I had 
woken up in the middle of the 
ni^ht with a nightmare. I was 
going to die of AIDS. It was 
vivid, bat it was nonsense, and 
to prove that it was I would go 
to a hospital to take a test. As 
a gay man it was clear that I 
could be a carrier. 

That morning at ten o'clock 
1 gave a simple blood sample, 
all that was required. I was 
told to come back four weeks 
later to collect the result. 

I don't remember thinking 
of AIDS or the test more than 
once or twice during the 
intervening weeks. I was 28, 
fit. my acting career was 
looking up and my life was 
full.l almost decided to miss 
the appointment 
i suppose that I guessed it 
was bad news the moment I 
saw- her. Her face was friendly, 
even warm, but there was an 
anxiety in her eyes. She spoke 
to me solidly for almost half an 
hour, telling me what the 
implications of a positive re- 
sult were. Some of what she 
said went in. a lot passed me 
by. 1 remember feeling numb 
and cold. I asked some banal 
questions about life insurance. 

At 11.30 I found myself in 
Praed Street. Paddington.] de- 
cided to keep a lunch appoint-

weeks of my life. I woke up in 
the mornings shaking. I wrote 
a wifi, f drank rather too 
heavily. I started having 
thoughts about what sort of 
funeral I wanted. I even prayed 
to a Cod I didn't believe 
existed. 

One night I got out of bed at 
3am, pat on my shorts and ran 
faster than I have ever run in 
my life. I almost felt as if my 
life depended on it. 

SLv months later my life has 
settled down. The idea of 
killing myself because I was 
frightened of dying has ceased 
to seem logical. Regular con- 
sultations with a clinical psy- 
chologist helped. 

According to the only data I 
know of. only 20 per cent' of 
people diagnosed as having 
the HTLV-III antibodies will 
show any symptoms of AIDS 
and only about half of those 
will develop the disease. Stress 
and alcohol are two of the most 
important things that decrease 
immunity in general. With the 
use of yoga and the simplest of 
breathing exercises I no longer 
suffer from stress and I have 
cut back my alcohol intake 
enormously. 

What of the future? Well. 
I'm still as fit as a fiddle, 
working, and I've a new boy- 
friend who, like me, is HTLV- 
III positive. We met through a 
marvellous organization called 
Body Positive, for people who 
are in our particular boat. 

People in my position do not 
want pity. What we do want is 
for people to realize that we 
are not in the least dangerous 
to other people save for the 
most intimate sexual contact. 
We need the love and support 
of our friends and srr»\ 
money to be spent on 
looking for a cure so h “t 3 
that this virus does not 
become an epidemic. ^ 


Lifeline for victims 


The traumas associated with 
the test for the HTLV-III led 
Jonathan Grimshaw to sum 
Body Positive, which now has 
100 members and 1.000 asso- 
ciates. writes Gina Sereny. 

“Pre-test counselling is essen- 
tial for anyone having the 
test", he says. “No one should 
have to live through the 
trauma of finding themselves 
testing positive without im- 
mediate counselling at ihcir 
disposal." 

Thirty-five members are be- 


ing trained in counselling by 
psychologists and professional 
counsellors who have volun- 
teered their help. The organi-

L_JB^H__Jare well known, 
but ii is easy to overlook 
another common household 
toxin - alcoholic drink- 
.In a study recently pub- 
lished in the British Medical 
Journal, doctors in Notting- 
ham and Glasgow found that 


143 children were admitted to 
hospitals in the two cities with 
acute alcohol poisoning be- 
tween the years 1973 and 
1 984. Although a few had been 
forced to chink in violent 
circumstances most had been 
drinking of their own accord. 
All eventually recovered but 
many needed intensive care. 

The biggest danger, accord- 
ing to paediatrician Dr John 
Beattie, now at Sterling Royal 
Infirmary, was to toddlers 
who fell -foul of their own 
curiosity and drank alcohol 
which should have been kept 
out of their reach. A common 
problem was “Sunday morn- 
ing syndrome" with children 
of just three or so years 
sampling the delights of Mum 
and Dad's Saturday night 
party. 

The second risk group ap- 
parent from the study was 
children of around 12 years of 
age. Bravado and understand- 
able curiosity left a few young 
teenagers feeling very ill in- 
deed. More education at home 
about sensible drinking could 
help prevent this. Dr Beattie 
said. 

Homely births 

A study conduct- 
ed at the Queen 
Charlotte's H os- 
tial in London 
as shown that 
women may be 
better off having 
their babies in a low technol- 
ogy birth room” rather than 
in ' a high technology labour 
ward, provided there are no 
major complications during 
the birth 

The birth room at Queen 
Charlotte's is bedroom like 
and homely. Women using it 
are not offered epidural anaes- 
thesia or continuousfeted heart 
monitoring, but jhey are with- 
in reach of a fid h’ equipped 
labour ward should things go 
wrong. - 

One hundred and forty eight 
women. jook part in the study, 
just published in the British 
Journal of Obstetrics and 
Gynaecology, all of whom had 
had a previous normal deliv- 
ery: 

As might have been expected 
some of ihdse who started out 
in (he birth room had to switch 
to the labour ward as problems . 
arose. But for those .who 
remained : there were real ad- 
vantages: they felt they had _ 






more Jreedom to move around, 
thev spent less time in hospital 
in labour, they were less likely 
to be sutured after the birth 
and they fell more positively 
towards their babies. 

Asked whether they would 
like to give birth in the same 
environment again. 90 percent 
of those who had used the birth 
room said ves. Only five of 72 
women alfocate to nave their 
baby in the labour ward re- 
sponded positively. 

Doctors at Queen 
Charlotte's say a much larger 
study will be heeded to assess 
the true safety of the room. 

Sounds successful 

Test tnbe fertil- 
ization special- 
ists believe that 
a new method of 
collecting eggs 
using ultrasound 
can greatly im- 
prove foe ease and success of 
the procedHreitat the tech- 
nique is as yet only available at 
a few centres. 

It uses an ultrasound scan to 
display the position of ripe 
ovarian follicles on a screen. 
The doctor then uses this to 
guide him as be inserts a fine 
needle throngh foe abdomen 
and into the follicles so that be 
can aspirate the eggs. 

Advocates say that the ul- 
trasound method has several 
important advantages over 
laparoscopy which is the more 
usual procedure. The 
laparoscope allows the sur- 
geon to view directly foe inside 
of the body canty, bat to do 
this it has to be inserted 
throngh an incision in the 
abdominal wall and a general 
anaesthetic is nsually needed. 

Ultrasound is non-invasive 
and can be done under a local 
anaesthetic. In addition, ultra- 
sound can “see" though the 
tissues of the body artel so its 
view is not blocked by scarring. 

At foe Haltam Medical 
Centre in London, a private 
clinic which has dose links 
with specialists at Professor 
Stuart Campbell's unit at 
King's College Hospital in 
London, all egg retrievals are 

done using ultrasound. 

Doctors tbere say this policy 
is largely responsible for the 
success of foe programme so 
far. In just 18 months they 
have achieved 121 in vitro 
fertilization pregnancies and a 
success rate of 25 per cent

Body snatch 
foiled 

Hie newly knighted maverick of 
the Tory Party. Sir Richard Body, 
conspired spectacularly with 
members of the Labour Party 
yesterday to foil a Conservative 
plot Sir Richard — bitterly anti* 
EEC champion of small farmers — 
was in line, as the next most senior 
Tory, to succeed John Spence MP, 
who died last week, as chairman of 
the Commons Select Committee 
on Agriculture. But three Tories 
on the committee. David 
MacLean, Andy Stewart and Da- 
vid Harris, objected to Sir Richard 
and his anti-NFU activities and 
asked the Whips to appoint a 
senior Tory to the committee 
immediately, so he could be voted 
in over Sir Richard's head. Too 
late, though: Labour's Joan May- 
nard. Gavin Strang and Tom 
Tornav. together with Sir 
Richard’s ally Albert McQuarrie. 
got wind of the plot and moved to 
elect a chairman on the spot. The 
vote for Sir Richard was unani- 
mous - with the three plotters left 
looking fools as abstainers.

a year after leaving The Times for 
Maxwell (she was tipped to be-

that her managing editor’s job 
proved less central than she 
hoped. Last year she became 
involved in Maxwell’s plans (un- 
covered here) for a full-colour 
down-market paper, tentatively 
named Good Day. Since then her 
life has become less colourful —

Upstaged 


Who says Andrew Lloyd Webber 
is only interested in seeing his 
name in lights? At the first night of 
Cafe Puccini by Robin Ray, a 
photograph and biography of 
Llovd Webber that had appeared 
in the programme during previews 
was removed in favour of a simple 
biography of his Really Useful 
Theatre Company. Yesterday, a 
spokeswoman pooh-poohed talk 
of artistic clashes within the 
production team. "Andrew has 
generously derided that the credit 
should go to the production team, 
not him. We've removed his name 
from adverts for Lend Me a Tenor 
for the same reason.”

After Red Wedge comes an even 
worse political intrusion on to the

record featuring impressions of 
Leon Brittan being grilled on TV

To Neil Kiunock's private dis-

Glenys Thornton to the chairman- 
ship of the Greater London La- 
bour Party is proving a hollow 
victory. The Kinnockite Mrs 
Thornton, who ousted the hard- 
left .Anhur Latham, scraped in 
thanks to Nupe's block vote. But 
at the recent elections, the hard 
left seized a majority of the 
executive seats, leaving Mrs 
Thornton a mere puppet In their

Maralinga: looking for a deal 


Canberra 

Anglo-AustraJian relations have 
recovered from the strains caused 
by the royal commission report 
into British nuclear tests in Aus- 
tralia Since it was tabled in 
Parliament here four months ago. 
Bui a new phase, involving a 
protracted series of negotiations, 
could lead to further differences 
unless each side shows concern for 
the other’s position. 

The recommendation by Mr 
Justice James McClelland, presi- 
dent of the commission, on the 
future of the outback sites contam- 
inated bv the tests tried to deal 
with a complex issue by a simple 
device: make Britain responsible 
Tor rendering the ranges "fit for 
unrestricted habitation by ihe 
traditional Aboriginal ^owners as 
soon as practicable". Almost 
immediately. however. Bob 
Hawke's Labor government ac- 
knowledged that there was more 
to the question of the kind of 
clean-up operation necessary and 
who should foot the bill. 

A technical advisory group of 
scientists from Britain and Austra- 
lia. established after ministerial 
talks in January 1 , has just complet- 
ed its first round of meetings and 


Stephen Taylor reports on the tussle ahead 
over Australia’s big radioactive clean-up 


on-site inspections. By May. it 
should have submined a report 
offering a range of options for 
clearing the worst contaminated 
range, the Maralinga site in South- 
ern Australia, of around 21.5kg of 
toxic plutonium waste. 

it is bound to be an expensive 
business and the two governments 
cannot agree on who should pay. 
Britain holds that under the terms 
of a document signed by the 
Australian government in 1968 it 
has neither legal nor moral respon- 
sibility for Maralinga. The Hawke 
administration maintains that, as 
previous decontamination work 
was ineffective. Britain is still 
bound by the 1956 memorandum 
of agreement in which it under- 
took liability for “such corrective 
measures as may be practicable in 
the event of radioactive contami- 
nation resulting from tests”. 

Senator Gareth Evans, who as 
minister of resources and energy is 
conducting negotiations, says he 
has “reasonable confidence" that 
the two positions can be recon- 


ciled. He told me: “Our desire has 
been to lower the temperature 
after the McClelland hearings and 
get on with the job of making a 
technical assessment of our op- 
tions before we gel back to the 
negotiating table." 

He said that when he met Sir 
Geoffrey Howe and other British 
ministers in January be was not 
surprised by their refusal formally 
to accept moral resposibility for 
cleaning up Maralinga; it would 
have been unrealistic to expea 
anything else at so early a stage. 

“It is an intergovernmental 
problem which has to be solved in 
a sensitive way. I took the view 
that on the basis of the report - 
unspecific as it was on the issue of 
a clean-up, but very explicit about 
ascribing responsibility — it 
would be a mistake to expect the 
British government response to be 
other than what it has been. 

“I believe, though, that when 
the technical issues are clearly on 
the table and it is not simply a 


blank cheque that we are asking 
the British to sign, then they will 
do the honourable thing. Natural- 
ly we want the British government 
to pay but you don't get anywhere 
by screaming." In turn, the Aus- 
tralian side had been encouraged 
by Britain's co-operation and 
willingness to talk things through. 

The government’s concern for 
British sensibilities is in sharp 
contrast to McClelland's vigorous 
criticism of Whitehall bureau- 
cracy during the hearings. It may 
even be that the two responses are 
related, for there is embarrass- 
ment here at some aspects of the 
commission's work. Editorial 
writers agreed that McClelland 
compromised his position by gra- 
tuitous “Pom-bashing” 

The cabinet has not yet decided 
its response on the other key 
McClelland recommendation, 
that Canberra should compensate 
Aborigines for loss of access to 
traditional lands caused by the 
tests. But it has disappointed 
Aboriginal groups by rejecting the 
proposal for a Maralinga commis- 
sion, with' Aboriginal representa- 
tives, to oversee the clean-up 
operation. . 


Sir Gordon Borne, director-gen- 
eral of the Office of Fair Trading, 
has been complaining that too 
many people are in debt, and 
"thousands ... are falling behind 
in their payments". You may ask 
what that has got to do with fair 
trading; the obvious answer is 
nothing, but Sir Gordon does have 
an excuse. The failure of Mr and 
Mrs Higginbotham to keep up 
their hire-purchase instalments 
(the “never-never” it was called 
when I was a boy) cannot be 
described as trading, fair or unfair, 
but the provision of the hire- 
purchase goods and terms can be, 
and Sir Gordon has only drawn 
the family Higginbotham into the 
net designed for Messrs Vulture 
and Shark. 

He denounced finance compa- 
nies. building societies and others 
whose business is credit (of which, 

I suppose, the plastic credit-card is 
the most ubiquitous form) for 
selling so much of their invisible 
but potent product Such mer- 
chants are “over-selling”, nay, 
“irresponsible”, they are exerting 
“pressure to buy now and pay 
later”. (That incidentally, is a 
definition of credit: if you buy now 
and pay now no credit is in- 
volved.) 

Before everybody faints dead 
away at the horror revealed by Sir 
Gordon, let us look a little more 
closely at his facts. He tells us that 
Britain's total of personal debt 
excluding mortgages, is £22 bil- 
lion. that is. an average of £ 1 .000 
of debt for every household in ihe 
country. 

That means we are dealing with 
22 million households, among 
which there are “thousands” of 
“worried debtors who’ve bor- 
rowed beyond their means". How 
manv thousands? 20.000? 50.000? 
Shall* we say 100.000? If we do. we 
shall discover that these feckless 
debtors comprise slightly less than 
half of one per cent of households, 
or something like a quarter of one 
per cent of adults. 

From this, the only possible 
conclusion is that the people of 
this country are almost dan- 
gerously fanatical in their det- 
ermination to avoid being over- 
indebted. and quite astoundingly 
successful in making sure that they 
are not 

For every non-existent problem 
there is an imaginary solution. Sir 
Gordon, having convinced him- 
self that the country is drowning in 
unpayable debts, proposes: “Fi- 
nance houses and other credit 
firms should put their hantte in 
their pockets to support a chain of 
independent money advice cen- 
tres throughout the country." 
Well, 1 suppose it would be one 
way of reducing unemployment 
among accountants. 

Now before I go on to draw a 
moral from this tale. I must invite 
you to listen to a variation on a 
similar theme. There is a practice 
called “hacking”, which consists 
of using a computer to get into 
other people's computer systems: 
apparently this is quite easily done 
by those with the necessary skills, 
who are thus in a position to 
“eavesdrop" on others’ comput- 
erized material. The practice is not 
in itself illegaL Indeed, the Scot- 
tish Law Commission, which has 
been investigating this curious 


Bernard Levin 


Nanny cannot 
save us all 
from our folly 



sport, has just come to some 
extremely unambiguous conclu- 
sions on it which it has sum- 
marized thus: 

If property is not removed it 
does not count as theft, if 
records are not interfered with 
for gain it is not fraud, and if 
nothing is damaged it is not 
vandalism, so it does not look 
as though a crime has been 
committed. 

You and I would think that, 
after so lucid a summary of the 
position, there would be nothing 
to add. We would, however, have 
reckoned without the Scottish 
Law Commission. Faced with a 
practice that makes it nervous, 
and discovering after exhaustive 
examination that the practice has 
the impertinence to be perfectly 
lawful (for the very good reason 
that nobody is harmed by it), it has 
recommended that it should be 
made illegal, in a brand-new 
category of crime all to itself, with 
up to two years in prison as a 

penalty. 

Again, you and I might think 
that two years in chokey, for no 
better reason than that the Scot- 
tish Law Com mission had nothing 
to do one rainy afternoon, would 
be coming it a bit strong, but just 
listen to the words of Mr Gordon 
Nicholson. QC: 

While a lot of hacking has 
been done for sheer fun there 
are undoubtedly people who 
would seek to use the activity 
as a form of industrial es- 


PaiWn Youens 

pionage. 

Well, while six-foot lengths of 
rope are very handy for children 
who want to play skipping games, 
there are undoubtedly some peo- 
ple who would seek to use the 
commodity to strangle QCs with. 
But to avoid this appalling out- 
come, would Mr Nicholson make 
skipping illegal, or even rope? 
Surely he would do better to buy a 
very stiff collar? For insofar as 
industrial espionage is a crime 
already, no new laws are required 
to punish it if it is done by a hacker 
rather than by a cat-burglar, and 
insofar as it is not, it can hardly be- 
come one merely by being done 
through a computer. 

What have both Sir Gordon 
Borne and the Scottish Law 
Commission forgotten? It comes 
back to that word 1 have lately 
been using more and more: 
responsibility. There is no re- 
corded instance of credit being 
forced upon an unwillingdebtorat 
the point of a gun; similarly, no 
ruthless gangs, equipped with 
electrified cattle-prods and Dober- 
man Pinschers, are preventing 
firms from taking their own 
precautions against industrial es- 
pionage. 

Let us suppose that the “worried 
debtors” are numbered in their 
millions, not thousands; la us 
assume that other millions spend 
all their lime in front of computer 
keyboards, hacking away 19K. to 
the dozen. The English for both 
caveat emptor and woe victis is 


serve you right, in a democracy we 
do uot prevent sane adults from 
making their own choices, even 
though we know that some of 
them will make choices that turn 
out very badly for them, and 
similarly we do not turn innocent 
behaviour into a crime because 
some people are embarrassed by it 
and cannot bestir themselves suf- 
ficiently to work out ways of 

avoiding the embarrassment. - 

I say we do not do these things; 
but the truth is that we do. and we 
do them more frequently and 
more extensively as time passes. 
Year by year, the Nanny State (I 
believe I coined the term) em- 
braces us more firmly and com- 
prehensively. tying our hands with 
the softest of silk cords, and 
hobbling our ankles with the 
lightest of aluminium chains, and 
assuring us often quite truth- 
fully — that it is not to prevent us 
harming others, but to prevent us 
harming ourselves. 

But if we do not have the chance 
to hurt ourselves, we shall not be 
able to help ourselves, either, if we 
are forbidden to walk into danger, 
we shall never be able to walk 
anywhere interesting; if they take 
away our power to do wrong, they 
deprive us of any meaning in 
doing right. 

And these are not metaphors. 
Nanny no longer confines herself 
to what we are not allowed to do; 
gradually, she begins to con- 
centrate on what we must do. 
There are many roads to serfdom, 
and one of the straightest and 
fastest is paved with the very best 
intentions. 

It is certainly unpleasant, worry- 
ing and painful for people to see 
the three-piece suite and the video 
recorder, so cheerfully bought on 
credit months ago, disappearing 
round the corner in the 
recoveryfirm's van, and it is not 
enough to say that that will teach 
them to do a few sums before they 
sign next time; there are some who 
will never learn, and will end up 
without curtains or a kitchen 
chair.. But despite them, we have 
got to restore the connection, now 
almost invisible throughout foe 
country, between cause and effect, 
action and reaction, purchase and 
bill 

Sir Gordon Borne would deal 
with the problem of debtors by 
condemning their creditors; the 
Scottish Law Commission would 
deal with the problem of hacking 
by arming the hackers' victims 
with the criminal law. I would deal 
with both problems by first dedar- 
ing that they are not problems at 
all, but the inevitable result of our 
now almost universal refusal to la 
anyone suffer the' consequence of 
his own folly, or even to la anyone 
tell him it is folly, and after that by

And long ’tis like to be.

How hollow is Halley’s heaven? 


The Flat Earth Society has been 
very quiet about Halley's Comet- 
h's not like them. Usually they 
reply to my letters and send me 
copies of their newsletter. Flat 
Earth News. They have even made 
me an honorary member and 
supplied me with a membership 
card. But when I asked their Mr 
Johnson about the precise way in 
which the comet fits into their 
theory that the world is just a 
plane and the sky a dome above 
it — nothing. Let's hope they 
haven't, well, fallen off the edge. * 

The International Flat Earth 
Research Society, last heard of in 
California, has produced a map to 
show that the North Pole is in the 
centre of a vast flattened-out 
saucer. The so-called South Pole is 
actually an enormous wall of ice 
round the outside of the saucer. 

Tests have been done. The earth 
doesn't curve. Nor does it spin in 
sp3ce. but stays put 

That is all obvious enough, as is 
the fact that the sky is a roof some 
4.000 miles above us: just below it 
are the stars and planets, which are 
in fan “luminous discs” shuffled 
around by some unseen agency. 
We all live, it seems, in some giant 
Planetarium, without having to 
pay an entrance fee. 

The only question in my mind 
is: where does Halley’s Comet fit 
in? It can't come from the other 


side of the dome because there is 
nothing there except water, which 
seeps through the cracks (that's 
how we have rain, of course). Is it 
a new “disc” which is suddenly 
manufactured every 76 years and 
destroyed in between limes? If it is 
not more than 4.000 miles away, 
how come the space probes have 
had to travel millions of miles to 
get it in their sights? Are they in 
fact forgeries? The moon landings 
were considered just that, in 
orthodox Flat Earth circles. 

As i said, no reply. It's enough 
to make you lose faith in the Flat- 
Earthers and turn instead to an 
organization called the Tychonian 
Society, last heard of in Canada. 
This takes its name from a 1 6th 
century Danish astronomer called 
Tycho Brahe who came up with 
the theory that all the planets go 
round the sun (right) but that the 
earth does not (wrong). The earth 
is round (right) but absolutely still 
in space (wrong). 

Tests have been done to prove 
that the earth does not spin or 
move, the Tychonian Society 
asserts: the stars go round the 
earth, as does the sun. round 
which the planets revolve in turn. 
Astronomy, according to the the- 
ory. took a wrong turning centu- 
ries ago: it is all Galileo's faulL 
Simple, if simple-minded. 

Now. this scheme makes much 


more sense of Halley's Comet, 
which whizzes about the place 
without bumping into any celes- 
tial roof. Admittedly, Tychonians 
have to say that it. like everything 
else, goes round the earth, a point 
over which they part company 
with the Astronomer Royal, but 
otherwise they can hold up their 
heads in scientific circles — cer- 
tainly in 16th century scientific 
circles. 

And so to the Hollow Universe 
theory, which was popular in the 
Thirties - the 1930s, that is, not 
the 1530s or 1630s. Hitler was a 
believer at one point, and if only 
he had stuck to heavenly theoriz- 
ing the world, flat or otherwise, 
would have been a happier place. 
(This scheme of the universe. I 
must emphasize, should not be 
confused with the interesting view 
held by at least one member of the 
House of Lords and by the Hollow 
Earth Society, which sometimes 
drops me a line from its head- 
quarters in Sydney. Australia, 
about the world being like a 
football. The inside is inhabited by 
"subhuman mutants" and other 
Hollow Earth people who creep up 
occasionally from the bottom of 
caves or shoot out of a hidden exit 
in flying saucers. You may have 
neighbours like that) 

The idea is that we are on the in- 
side of a hollow world, or uni- 


verse. like flies crawling, about 
inside a spherical lampshade. We 
dwell in the bubble of a vast lump 
of gorgonzola. Adherents of this 
theory did tests which show that 
the surface of the earth does not 
curve downwards (as scientists 
claim): nor is it dead straight (as 
Flat Earth ers stale) but instead 
curves upwards. 

Where there is room for debate 
is the actual composition of the 
universe. Some Hollow Men hold 
that the sun. moon and stars are 
suspended in the middle of the 
sphere, p jssibfy glued to a sort of 
heavenly tennis-ball. But one 
doesn't want to be dogmatic, 
because others again give a hollow 
laugh at this point and explain the 
heavenly bodies in quite a dif- 
ferent way. .Inside the sphere, they 
state, is a phantom solar system 
which is obscured every night by 
some celestial hand pumping out a 
bluish gas. 

Some readers may cruelly retort 
that the only hollow space around 
is between the ears of anyone who 
believes this sort of nonsense. But 
to my mind the theory explains 
Halley's Comet perfealy. 

it is. like the restof the heavenly 
bodies, not there. It is simply a 
phantom. That explains why no 
one has seen iL 1 certainly have

a poll issue 


I was talking the other evening to a 
prominent Opposition MP about 
disarmament and the present state 
of Easi-West relations. My thesis 
was that these were balanced on a 
knife-edge and could easily , slip 
back into an unprofitable dead- 
lock. but assuming, they di dn t, I 
said, one could begin to see ire 
feint outline of a possible interim 
deal at Geneva roughly on the 
basis of an American proposal 
whereby the British and French 
nuclear forces could be accom- 
modated by the Russians, in 
return for the West allowing 50 per 
cent of the Soviet medium-range 
missilds in the Far East to survive. 

“Aha" said tnv politician, quick 

as a flash, “She’d obviously like to 
go to the country in spring '87. 
That's when the economy will be 
looking at its best. What she needs 
Bra pretext for going so earty^An 
election to approve the kind of 
East-West deal you're talking 
about would be just tbeiob. Peace 
with patriotism — terrific appeaL 

I thought this insight looked 
pretty dotty when it was put to me. 
and in a way I still do. If an excuse 
for holding an election really has 
to be ’found (a doubtful propo- 
sition these days, at any time after 
the three-year mark in our cycle) 
why should the scepticism of the 
British voters be calmed by their 
being told that formal consent at 
the polls is required to “ratify” an 
agreement to which Britain is only 
a minor party and to which almost 
nobody is likely to take exception 
anyway? . 

Subsequent events, especially 
the exchanges in the Commons on 
Tuesday, nave made me ■ think 
again — not, perhaps, to the point 
of accepting the “pretext” argu- 
ment but at least to the extent of 
acknowledging that t he w hole 
disarmament issue has a great deal 
of potential political zip in it 

It would be very nice for Mrs 
Thatcher at any moment, but 
particularly in an election context, 
if she could (a) get. rid of the 
constant annoyance of being told 
that she is one of the chief 
obstacles to an arms control 
agreement; (b> eliminate any pos- 
sible revival of anti- American 
agitation over cruise missiles: (c) 
make the Labour Party's defence 
policy look- even more idiotic and 
(d) “legitimize" the expensive 
modernization of the British nu- 
clear force by being able to claim 
that it has the tacit consentofboth 
superpowers. She can live with the 
situation as it is, but she must be 
genuinely eager to see progress at 
Geneva and turn it to demesne 
advantage. 

Moreover.the British are not the 
only practical politicians who are 
interested in this issue. -As they 
jockey for position in advance of a 
possible election this summer, foe 
Japanese parties are playing with 
Japan's alleged vulnerability to 
the Soviet SS-20 missiles now 
deployed in Asia. In Germany, 
the initial panic that followed the 
American decision to explore the 
possibility of negotiating foe com- 
plete removal of cruise and Per- 
shing missiles from Europe seems 
to have subsided as German 
politicians have realized that the 
long-term votes are in detente. 
German elections next spring are 
bound to be influenced by foe 
state of East-West negotiations. 


Politicial interest in the US a 
acme as weJUfcougfr * nop 
different way. Not many of foe 
congressmen and sesaicraup for 
re-election this atmunn.wtfl stand 
or fail bv disarmament ana 

summitry. Io a situation .wtae 
there are about as many vow in 
being strongly anti-SovieUS bemg 
in favour of another round .of 
detente, most stick to safe r 
and more profitable domestic 
issues. Nevertheless, fteadent 
Reagan .obviously # believes that 
ihe “peace" issue is al deep and 
powerful one which txM have 
unpredictable political con- 
sequences in the US. as well as 
among foe European aHtes, if itu 

not handled sympathetically. He 

has no intention of handing 
Gorbachov the initiative. 

Tactically this means not bold- 
ing the Washington summit dur- 
ing the - mid-term ' election 
campaign. i.e. between the en d of 
July and mid-November tins year. 
The thought of the Soviet leader 
and his wife grandstanding round 
the US at such a time seems to 
produce an instinctive re action 
not fer from panic in American 
politicians." But strategically : one 
begins to sense that in spite of 
strong counter-currents that could 
produce “Goddammit" gestures 
like restricting tire sae of foe 
Soviet delegation to the- UN, 
Reagan has accepted the implica- 
tion that tire US should be 
prepared so move a good, deal 
further down . the ' disarmament 
path than the Pentagon and the 
right wing think wise. 

This picture suggests that, ex- 
cept perhaps in Japan; foe im- 
mediate political omens .in foe 
West are favourable to East-West 
agreements: The qu es tio n , of 
course, is •: whether there is . a 
reciprocal mood in MoscOw. The 
US negotiators tit . Geneva report 
that tire -Russians have been 
stonewalling- in the round of 
negotiations that hasjpm. finished, 
ft may be foal this is just a nutter 
of foe leadership’s preoccupation 
whh the party congress and with 
frnporianlsirifts frt personnel, like 
foe return of Mr Dobrynin from 
Washington to Moscow, which 
win take time to impinge on the 
planning of Soviet foreign policy. 

All these factors, together, with 
the loss of Soviet face Overtire UN 
delegation affair, seem likely to 
postpone the summit from June 
until late autumn in any case. But 
the trouble may lie deeper. Logi- 
cally speaking, there is every 
incentive for Gorbachov to reduce 
the strain of the defence budget on 
the Sovia economy. His whole 
strategy of economic reform may 
depend on it - 

But can thoKosssabs resist their 
perennial tendency to overplay 
foeir hand? The West’s political 
eagerness for a deal, and the 
possible differences between 
American, British. French and 
Japanese percep ti o ns of national 
interests are a powerful tempta- 
tion to string the Geneva negotia- 
tions out until after the German 
elections in 1987 and beyond. 

The danger is that if foe 
Russians succumb they will prob- 
ably find foe American mood has 
changed again as the. 1988 
presidential election approaches 
and the political window that is 
now open will be slamraed'shuL

The day I spent 




Nostalgia strikes in peculiar ways. 
One of foe times I look back to 
with most pleasure is foe four 
years I spent locked in a small 
room at Broadcasting House. I > 
wasn’t there all foe time, just long 
enough to pick out material- from 
the radio archives to produce a 1 5- 
minute programme every three 
weeks, but being shut in that 
cubicle with a record-player, a pile 
of records and all day to listen to 
them was nearly heaven. 

Making foe programmes them- 
selves wasn't so much fun. The 
delight lay in being able to go in of 
a morning and ask myself who I 
would like to listen to foal day. 
George Bernard Shaw? Max Beer- 
bohm? H.G. Wells? Whoever, it* 
was. foe BBC had an ample store 
of them,” carefully transferred to 
LP or. if it was old enough. 78. 
One day I listened all day to 
Bernard Shaw talking; I didn’t use 
any of it in the programme,* but it 
was like being granted entry to the 
best cocktail party in the world. 

Often, foe best bits came from 
unexpected quarters. One of the 
archive girls came to me one day 
holding a 78 record, and said: 
“This might interest ..you. It’s a 
recording of Richard Dunbieby in 
1948, broadcasting in the nude. "It 
was; too, being a recording he had 
made in foe Turkish baths in 
Jeraiyn Street complete wifo 
sound effects of a masseur slap- 
ping foe ample Dimbleby flesh. 
Unformnaiely. I had recently. used . 
that same track in a programme, 
but I glanced idly at foe otbersfde 
to see if there was anything of 
interest there. 

It didn't sound too interesting.- 
-John Snagge interviews foe oklea 
surviving Boat Race rower, it said. 
But I listened to -ft. anyway. The 
man in question had rowed for 
Oxford in about 1872 and was 
now a 94-year-old Vicar. The last 
survivor of foe great Victorian 

days of rowing, said Snagge; and 

still bright and fit at .94, looting as 
if he could row foe whole course 
over again. Tell me, sic. what do 
you remember about the Varsity 
Race of 1872? : 

There was a pause, and then foe 


old, old voice said: “I'm afraid to 
say. I ; don't remember anything 
interesting about the occasion at 
. aft". Magic! A muhful interview at 
last. -But Snagge persevered. There 
must be something he- remem- 
bered about ‘ foe great' occasion. 
There must be something. 

Well said the old man, I do 
remember that my seat broke and 
I.feU on my bade. This interrupted 
foe rhythm of the boat and we 
took time to recover s in feet,- we 
lost by 20 lengths eventually. In 
other words, tins old man haa lost 
Oxford the Boat Race and bad 
managed to forget all about it until 
70 years later .when John Snagge 
had come along- and brutally 
revived tiie,xnemory. ...r: 

When feeling low, I used. to put

remember best wasrone by AMous 
Huxley (why is that great man so 
unfashionable these days?) en- 
titled Why do Wars Happen?, 
which' is one of the most chilling 
experiences ! have ever had. - - 

His thesis was' quite simple.

they wanted too. A grim thought. I 
have always wanted-to find out. if

THE TIMES FRIDAY MARCH 14 1986 



jj’ennington Street, London El 9XNTeienTione: ni-4«l 4100 


Fnendsof the Earth have been 
r. heard. Dr 'John C unningh am 
hM. been heard Often. Dr 
Garret FitzGerald and sundry 
members of the Dail - have 
spoken. Mr Con Allday and 
various spokespeople for Brit- 
ish Nuclear, Fuels : have ut- 
tered. The Prime Minister has 
made a brief 1 and characteris- 
tically vigorous intervention. 
..Mr Kenneth Baker has 
evinced his faith in the nuclear 
future. The Government' Chief 
Whip has articulated a similar 
faith — but not, you under- 
stand,; anywhere bear his 
constituents in Essex. But 
where is the voice - of the 
minister responsible ? 

Air Peter Walker, who 
speaks wellenough when the 
spirit moves him. has been 
strangely silent The result is 
an unfortunate political void. 
During the past two months a 
chapter of accidents at BNFL 
have, frightened the. public. 
Anxiety could have been 
diminished had ministers been 
able to -communicate a sense 
;that,.; whatever minor . ac- 
cidents might , occur at 
Sellafield, there was . a. higher 
wisdom behind the evidently 


NUCLEAR SILENCE 


dangerous and problematical 
business of nuclear reprocess- . 

in& 

Thanks to Sir Hugh Rossi 
and colleagues, who lave done 
yeoman service '.on the 
Environment Committee, per- 
haps Mr Walker trill be 
smoked out There are issues 
demanding reassurance, a sort 
of doctor's mandate, and there 
are issues demanding decision. 
Some glimpse is. now needed 
of the overall energy, policy 
which, however distrustful the 
government rightly remains of 
central plans, is surely nec- 
essary if sensible derisions are 
-to be made about future 
public-sector investment and 
the public weaL 

Because of the multiplicity 
of operations on the Sellafield 
site, the use of that name in the 
singular is confusing The 
MPs' focus was waste, es- 
pecially the higher order radior 
active -detritus- -so 
conspicuously ignored when 
the Government recently pro- 
duced its thoughts about 
NIRJEX*s disposal plan. The 
MPS want nothing less than 
the revision — after only eight 
years — of the conclusions of 


the Windscale inquiry. 

Here should be the text if 
not for Mr Walker’s next 
speech then for one to be 
delivered very soon. He might, 
plausibly, say the economics of 
reprocessing are a matter for 
BNFL, (though not insofar as 
the arithmetic results from the 
pricing policies' and invest- 
ment derisions of the Central 
Electricity Generating Board), 
but the location of the result- 
ing wastes is neither a private 
nor a quasi-public matter. It is 
firmly within the public do- 
main. 

• BNFL, somewhat altering 
the balance of argument from 
five years ago, now wants to 
argue the case for reprocessing 
spent fuel rods as a form of 
waste management. The equa- 
tions are not simple. There is a 
balance of cost and of risk 
between classes of radioactive 
waste. Matters are rapidly 
reaching- the point where 
BNFL will not be trusted to 
calculate those sums. An ex- 
panded version of the joint 
BNFL-Energy Department re- 
view proposed by the MPs is 
needed. But before that Mr 
Walker has some talking to do. 


SENOR GONZALEZ’ HOUR OF TRIUMPH 


Nato’s gleeful secretary-gen- 
eral Lord Carrington has 
called the result of Spain's epic 
referendum, - “good for the 
alliance, good for Europe and 
good for Spain.** He might 
have added, that it was good for 
Senor Felipe. Gonzalez, who 
staked his political capital and 
won. - If it was good for 
everyone else, it was best of all 
for him. : : 

For the Western Alliance, it 
was — on: the face of it;— an 
enormous vote of confidence 
from its sixteenth member. 
Not only did nine million 
Spaniards vote in favour, but 
many of those eleven million 
who abstained^ bekmged to the 
right-wing opposition, whose 
support for Nafo was implicit 
anyway, but were boycotting 
the poll in deference; to the 
dubious political tactics -of its 
leaders. - •• : i* V. 

For Europe the vote con- 
firmed Spain’s recent advance- 
ment to the front rank of 
Continental powers. A mem- 
ber of the : Community, a 
partner within the Western 
Alliance — this country which 
only last autumn celebrated a 
decade of post-Franco democ- 
racy — has made a decision of . 
historic importance. 

The mood in Madrid last 


night was one. of relief that an 
issue which has bedevilled 
future planning for the past 
four, years has been, con- 
fronted At last the country can 
get on with the business of 
living. 

But Senor Gonzalez, is the 
man wiio can claim the credit 
He shunned. the advice of 
those who wanted him to drop 
plans for a referendum, con- 
centrated his- energies upon 
winning it and, despite the 
glum predictions of the opin- 
ion poQs, has done so fry a 
comfortable margin. With an 
election due by the Autumn, 
this moderate modem socialist 
has emerged much stronger 
than . than before with the 
rospect of . vanning a further 
our years in power. 

One should beware of 
overstating the case. ' More 
people v _ abstained in. . _ the 
referendum . than voted in 
favour. This might be seen as 
proof that support for the 
opposition leader Manuel 
Fraga is alive and weD. Not 
only that, but the. high absten- 
tion vote in Catalonia and the 
Basque country reflected a 
preoccupation with other is- 
sues, primarily devolution. It 
was from the faithful of rural 
Spain that the . government 


drew its support this week. 

Elsewhere there are other 
issues, like unemployment — 
at more than 20 per cent the 
highest in the European 
Community — to concentrate 
the mind. Spain has made 
great strides to emerge as a 
European power, but its future 
in the Community will bring 
problems as well as solutions 
for its economic life, as Span- 
ish industry fights to hold its 
own in a competitive world. 


Fc 


Moreover Nato member- 
ship in itself conceals a num- 
ber of questions. In his anxiety 
to win a vote for his cause 
Senor Gonzalez committed his 
country to a non-nuclear pol- 
icy and a non-military 
commitment which could in 
the course of time prove 
embarrassingforSpain’sallies. 
And the talks with the United 
States over reductions on the 
four American bases in Spain 
have stiff to be settled. 


Senor Gonzalez conducted 
an impassioned, personalized 
campaign to secure victory 
this week. There might come a 
time when the vigour of his 
appeal could react against him. 
But that is for tomorrow. No- 
one should begrudge him bis 
hour of victory. 


ENLIST IN CRIME PREVENTION 


For a government that wrote 
the phrase law and order so 
large on its electoral banner it 
has been a bad week. A single 
crime, rape and assault in west 
London, has seized the 
nation's attention- The acquit- 
tal in the case of Leonie 
Darnley’s murder com- 
. pounded the fear.' Figures pub* 
fished yesterday seemed to 
give statistical validity to an 
impression of rampant crime. 

The picture shown by the 
Home Office’s accounting has 
its encouraging aspects, such 
as the drop in the rate of 
burglary. But the growth in 
crimes of violence deserves Mr 
Hurd's epithet, bleak. 

That these figures appear 
after seven years of “law and 
order” during which changes 
have been made to the crim- 
inal justice system, to police 
powers; and riot least to the 
resources expended on police 
and prisons, does not connote 
the failure of the policy. What 
they show is that here, as in 
other branches of social policy, 
there is no quick fix. 

It is in character for min- 
isters, especially for Mrs 
Thatcher, to seize an issue of 
patent public concern and 
shake it with some vigour. She 
did with football hooliganism 
and .with drugs. It_ is a risky 
' approach. So with rising crime 
rates. 


tub-thumping. On the con- 
trary, the seminar she held 
recently at Downing Street was 
what was required — a 
demonstration of the long-, 
term and decentralized nature 
of the action that will have to 
be taken to raise the costs of

lineaments of a “liberaT. The 
liberality of a Home Secretary 
is not to be equated with 
looking coolly and objectively 
at the effect ofa regime such as 


the short sharp shock available

With property crime, Mrs 
-Thateher has shown that she 
accepts there is no scope for 


But ministers cannot go 
naked into the Commons and 
party meetings with schemes 
of - crime prevention alone. 
And erudite dissections of the 
fallibility of crime statistics 
will not do either. They have 
to gird themselves with policy. 
The elements are already 
there. If they look disparate, 
that is as must be. On sentenc- 
ing for rape the Lord Chief 
Justice's words must by now 
have lodged in the judicial 
psyche; Mr Justice Pain's 
: sternness . at the Old; Bailey 
demonstrated that the tariff for 
the offence already reaches far.. 

On police numbers MrHurd 
has promised to increase 
establishments. But police 
numbers have only a contin- 
gent relationship with foe vol- 
ume of crime. The sight of 
bobbies on patrol may boost 
the confidence of foe public, 
and this is not a factor to be 
disregarded, but it should not 
be equated with arrests or, 
necessarily, with prevention. 

There is, possibly, scope for 
new thinking about the penal 
regime. Mr Hurd has, in: Jus 
short tenure at Queen Anne’s 
Gate, displayed some of the 


___ , offenders. 

Equally, illiberality should not 
be equated with a re-examina- 
tion of foe case for toughening 
foe regime inside prisons. 

These are not palliatives. It 
may be, unhappy thought, that 
the country is at some in- 
determinate point on a wave 
of violent crime. There are 
those who, casual with their 
statistics and flippant with 
their correlations, will rush to 
instruct us in the causes — 
television, unemployment or 
the great imponderable 
“society”. The Government if 
it is wise, will eschew deter- 
minism of all kinds. What 
politicians, police and public 
must attempt to do is make 
violent crime more difficult 
and easier to detect 

This means, a cliche that 
deserves to be reawakened, 
more neighbourliness, perhaps 
a new sense of local altruism 
that may hot be easy to marry 
with the enterprising, go-get- 
ting temperament so vital to 
foe economic life of the nation. 
It means, more urgently than 
ever before, pursuing reform 
of the courts. Public faith in 
the delivery of justice must be 
buoyed, to provide the one 
true incentive to assisting the 
police in their work of detec- 
tion. 


Ward closures. 

From the Director of the Associ- 
ation of Independent Hospitals 
Sir. Whether for political dogma 
or not, for once the West Lam beih 
Health Authority members and 
not life Chairman appear 
got it right (report, March I*.). To. 
suggest that increasing ihemimDer 
of private beds at St Thomas 
Hospital would generate addi- 
tional net income to support me 

NHS is nothing short ofludicrous. 

In reality, foe quoted figure oj 
£727,000 income would result in a 
loss of disposable money because, 
the private .beds cost mor^to iron 
than the income received from 
them, though it seems that me 


continuing lack of financial aware- 
ness in the NHS and Government 
has yet to come to this under- 
standing. 

Whilst the Auditor General has 
sufficient concern to be looking at 
the question, it seems foal others 
wish U> ignore it for political 
expediency. ■ 

If West Lambeih really want to 
save money, I suggest they close 
all their private beds - they would 
be better off. '

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR 


Freedom to compete for gas 


From Mr Allen Sykes 
Sir. The Secretary of Slate for 
Energy, and indeed the whole 
Government, are to be 
congratuated on the liberalisation 
of gas exports (report. March 7).It 
starts to give gas the same free 
market economic regime as oil 
which turned us into the world's 
largest offshore oil producer in a 
dozen years. 

Regrettably, freedom to export 
gas was not decided early in the 
lust Conservative administration 
when first urged. Then even 
greater benefits for economic 
growth, export income and jobs 
would have been possible.lt would 
also have prevented the Soviet 
Union gaining quite the signifi- 
cant position it now has in 
European gas supplies, particu- 
larly if Norway had co-operated 
with Britain. 


scheme is as efficacious as allow- 
ing competitive forces the fullest 
possible rein.Ii is thus to be hoped 
that the Government will re- 
consider the case for breaking up 
foe British Gas Corporation into 
regional gas distribution entities, 
wiih a separate regulated common 
carrier central grid. 

Distribution within regioifs will 
inescapably remain a monopoly 


A jointly owned offshore gasline 
would have benefited both coun- 
tries and also a Western Europe 
seeking politically stable sources 
of energy. But this is not the time 
for carping. Even belated wisdom 
on exports is welcome. 


As the Government has now 
accepted the case for competition 
in g as markets, it should extend 
foe logic of this step to other parts 
of the privatisation Bill. As I have 
argued in your columns before 
(July 8, 1985) no regulatory 


Role of the MSC 

From the Hon Secretary of the 
Association of Colleges for Further 
and Higher Education ' 

Sir. Your leader on March 4 
described further education as 
“arguably the most important 
sector of educational provision**, 
and sees it as the starting point for 
the current review of policy. Your 
argument should be extended in 
two ways. 

Firstly, foe administration of 
education and training should 
be“married”. but cannot be di- 
rected by Government and/or 
MSC alone: it must include a 
strong local content. Further 
education responds to employ- 
ment needs at local as well as 
national levels. Each local labour 
market has its special features, 
sometimes with needs that go 
against national trends. 

Most colleges have independent 
systems of consultation with local 
industry — variable in quality, but 
improving. So. while local plan- 
ning has to be within the context 
of national development, national 
piannmg has to be with foe insight 
of local intelligence.

Disabled drivers 


From Ms Sue Jones 
Sir, Dr Michael (March 1) is right 
in saying that doctors need a 
system which discourages foe 
issue of orange badges to drivers 
who are not substantially disabled. 


We wheelchair-users, together 
with other disabled people, look 
forward to that day, as under the 
present system we are paying the 
price. 

The superintendent of my local 
police told me that it was the 
widespread abuse of foe badge 
which led to them requesting (and 
beinggranted, as from March 27) a 
complete ban on disabled parking 
in foe centre of Sutton Coldfield's 
pedestrianised shopping 
prednct-The irony is that this is 
one of the very few shopping 
centres anywhere in Britain which 
are accessible to independent 
wheelchair-users; it has no kerbs, 
and level entrances into all shops. 


Under the West Midlands 
County Council ban, the newly 
designated parking area for dis- 
abled people is on a hill too far 
away and too steep for wheel- 
chairs. It is also too far from the 
shops for ambulant disabled peo- 
ple; indeed, anyone who could 
walk foe 1*4 miles round trip to 
shop would certainly not qualify 
for an orange badge! 

It is a sad day when abuse of foe 
orange badge, the inability of foe 
police to pursue foe offenders, and 
foe refusal by the county council 
to take seriously objections raised 
to their plan conspire to bar 
disabled people from ever using 
their local pedestrianised shop- 
ping centre again.

SUE JONES.

Prescription charges 

From Mr John F. Weatherill

ad nauseam statistics purporting 
to prove that they have increased 
spending on foe National Health

that the NHS is consequently 
“safe with us”.

Yet now we hear from none other 
than foe Minister of Health. Mr 
Hayhoe himself, that the 10 per 
cent increase in foe prescription 
charge “is exactly in line with the 
rising costs of medicines” (Par- 
liamentary report. March 101 
Mr Hayboe has fallen foul of his 
very own statistics and is hoist by 
his own petard. For be has now 
admitted, unintentionally I'm 
sure, that certain NHS costs have 
been rising fester than inflation 
and, therefore, in excess of foe rate 
at which this Government has 
been spending money on foe 
Health Service. 

This has meant cuts in real terms; 
this we have known for some time; 
this foe Government has finally 
admitted today.

Under false colours? 

From Mr Peter Falstrup 
Sir. As the crews are being 
determined for this year's Boat 
Race, old members of foe univer- 
sities must shudder with regret or 
turn in their graves. 

This event is no longer a contest 
between members of those 
particular universities. A Cam- 
bridge or Oxford “man” is one 
whose undergraduate degree was 
earned ai foe respective univer- 
sity. and today an increasing 
number of the crews are neither, 
they graduated initially from else- 
where. and many from abroad. 

In fact, one of those rowing in 
the Oxford boat is a Cambridge 
graduate. i.e_ a Cambridge man — 
as if that isn't the last straw! 
Yours sincerely.

Clearer Rugby 


From Mr Colin Maclvor 
Sir. It is time that Rugby referees 
came to terms with the feet that 
international matches are watched 
by millions of viewers, many of 
whom are unfamiliar with the 


intricacies of Rugby law. Even the 

often 


commentators often have trouble 
determining the cause of a particu- 
lar stoppage. 

Surely it is not beyond the wit of 
the RFU to draw up a set of simple 
arm signals for the referee, indicat- 
ing the nature or type of offence 
plus the culprit 

It might be objected that such a 


system would be distracting for 
the 


referee: but it works quite well 
for cricket umpires- Besides, it is 
the duty of the referee to make his 
derisions clear to foe players. 

It is a lesson we could well learn 
from American football. 

Yours etc.

Violent crime 
and the cloth 


aciiviiy requiring regulation. But 
effic' 


because of the efficiency compari- 
sons between regions which will 
now be possible, the regulatory 
agency will be able to do a much 
better job for customers, a main 
point,of privatisation. 

These proposed measures will 
reduce the sale proceeds from the 
BGC compared with privatising it 
as a monolith, but foe nation will 
have a much more efficient gas 
industry in consequence, which 
will do more for the economy and 
hence jobs than foe present 
plan.Having shown sense and 
courage on exports, it is to be 
hoped that foe Government will 
now consider sympathetically 
these further desirable steps.

From the Archdeacon of the Isle of 
H ighl , 

Sir. After last week's horrifying 
attack, one may perhaps hope that 
politicians and others who like to 
sound strong and masculine will 
stop talking about vicarage tea- 
parties as stock descriptions of 
lame and sheltered goings-on. 

A year or two ago. an incumbent 
in this archdeaconry disarmed and 
overpowered an intruder. That 
clergyman is over six feet tall, and 
has a rugger background. The 
intruder said. “ I picked the wrong 
vicar, didn't l?“. His children 
lived in terror for months after- 
wards. 


On the night before my first 
Sunday as vicar of a parish in 
Birmingham, more than twenty 
years ago. we were threatened with 
personal violence in a midnight 
telephone call. When I told the 
churchwardens the next morning, 
they said. “So it was true. then*'. 
My elderly predecessor and his 
wife had often told how this was 
happening to them, but no one 
believed them. A year later, the 
vicarage was broken into and 
ransacked. People simply said, 
•‘Welcome to the dub”. 


week, the Education Minister, 
Chris Patten, said that his “own 
model of effective national 
management for non-advanced 
FE is based firmly within foe idea 
of partnership”. This is to be 
welcomed and encouraged. 

Secondly, concern to secure 
even more vocational relevance in 
further education should not 
downgrade the importance of its 
other functions. These indude 
developing alternative routes into 
higher education (such as foe 
BTEC diploma route to supple- 
ment foe A level route and special 
access courses for adults), helping 
to secure a better public under- 
standing of science, technology 
and economics, and providing 
non-voealionai opportunities for 
whatever purpose individuals 
wish to use them. 

Finally, the argument apart, ihe 
MSC is good on volume and quick 
in delivery, but is not yet so good 
on quality.

Sunday trading 


From Mr B. J. W. Isaac 
Sir. YoureditoriaL “Freedom on a 
Sunday” (March 5). is an intellec- 
tual exercise juggling facts and 
falsehoods, but misses altogether a 
sense of responsibility that should 
always be company with 
“freedom” Does foe pursuit of 
profit override any consideration 
for people? Our freedom to shop 
needs shopworkers to satisfy those 
needs. Do we ignore what 
shopworkers. amongst others, say? 

The Open Shops Group have 
employed professional lobbyists, 
who have done in over two years a 
remarkable work on MPs and 
apparently many national news- 
papers. Frequently we hear of “a 
loud clamour” for Sunday open- 
ing, whereas foe Auid committee 
observed that there was no such 
demand. 


Most of us trying to protect our 
national heritage are not claiming 
it is sinful to shop on a Sunday, 
but rather we are endeavouring to 
prevent an important part of our 
traditional way of life from being 
wiped out for the sake of certain 
(powerful) vested interests (D1Y 
and garden centres mainly).

Fusion of the law 


From Mr Rodger Pannone 
Sir, Mr Andrew Phillips (“One 
solicitor who says no”, March 5) is 
of course entitled to say “no" to 
my committee’s consultative pa- 
per. Lawyers and the Courts: Time 
for some Changes, on a possible 
programme for reform of foe legal 
profession. This is a genuine 
consultation exercise among the 
public and the legal profession. 

Ail foe same, I would not wish 
his “no” to be based on any 
misconception. The paper is not 
proposing foe fusion of the two 
branches of foe legal profession, as 
Mr Phillips assumes. A strong and 
independent — but smaller — Bar 
is a central feature of our pro- 
posals. 

Your readers can judge the 
proposals for themselves, by

From Mr Philip H ailing 
Sir. As in so much of life the truth 
is often found through paradox. 
Andrew Phillips points out in his 
perceptive and persuasive article 
thai out of the apparent criticism 
and privilege at the Bar comes a 
service second to none which is 
available to the least privileged 
individual as much as to the 
richest company. 

We find a solicitor here pleading 
the Bar's case. Why is foe Bar 
Council not defending its un- 
doubted ethical and professional 
standards against this tide of 
desecration? It would appear that 
foe Bar feds that fusion is 
inevitable and therefore not worth 
foe candle to oppose it. 

! am amazed foal a collection of 
some of Ihe sharpest persuaders in 
the land cannot do more to 
explain that it is not in the public 
interest to fuse.

MARCH 14 1919 


Influenza was first known by that 
name in England in 17-t3 and a 
number of epidemics occurred 
during ihe nineteenth century. 
The pandemic in the winter of 
19181919 was on an appalling 
scale, its death toll of20million 
comparable to the Black Death. It 
ravaged through city and village; 
it spared no country or race, in 
England it claimed 150,000 
victims. A curious factor was the 
very high mortality of those under 
the age of 35 compared with that 
of those over 55. Our Medical 
Correspondent was Dr R. 
MacNair Wilson 0882-1963). 


DECLINE OF INFLUENZA. 
END OF THE THIRD WAVE. 

(By Our Medical 

Correspondent) 

The third wave of foe influenza 
epidemic has now ended. The 
deaths from this disease recorded 
for the 96 great towns of England 
and Wales last week numbered 
3.218. compared with 3.SS9 the 
previous week. In London the 
deaths numbered 597, as against 
808. What is more it has ended to 
date. The mysterious periodicity 
which the mysterious disease 
seems to have established for itself 
has been maintained 

This periodicity is roughly 12 
weeks. The first wave began in July 
and died down about the end of 
August— a two months’ course. 
Twelve weeks after the beginning 
of the first wave— at foe bepnning 
of October— the second wave began 
to How. This wave was spent by the 
middle of December. Again, 12 
weeks after the beginning of the 
second wave. Le., in January, the 
third wave appeared It had begun 
to spend itself In the first days of 
March. . . 

Meanwhile the evidence that the 
causative organism of the epidemic 
is the filter-passing germ described 
by the late Major Graeme Gibson 
and also by Captain Wilson accu- 
mulates. It is a very strong body of 
evidence, and to a great extent 
satisfies the requirements of proof 
laid down by Koch. That is to say. 
the germ can be recovered from 
patients affected by the disease; it 
can be cultivated outside the body: 
it can, when inoculated into ani- 
mals, reproduce the phenomena of 
the disease; and it can be recovered 
again from the inoculated animals, 
and again grown. 

It is just the failure to under- 
stand the necessity of proof of this 
sort which has led so many 
observers to describe “germs of 
influenza" in these last weeks. This 
is, perhaps, especially true of the 
much debated Pfeiffer's bacillus, 
which was originally discovered in 
the 'eighties, and has been dis- 
cussed a hundred times since. The 
bacillustis one of the many which 
are very' commonly present in foe 
human-nasopharynx. (Other bacilli 
very frequently found in healthy 
throats and noses are the pneumo- 
nia bacillus, the streptococcus and 
the staphylococcus). This by no 
means establishes the Pfeiffer 
bacillus as the cause of a disease. 
Were such an argument admitted, 
there would be no limit to the 
number of things which might be 
suspected in the same connexion. 
eg., baldness, soft corns— all of 
which occur frequently in persons 
suffering from influenza. We 
should be back again in foe dark 
ages. 

NEW VACCINE POSSIBLE. 
We do not think that it has been 
established of the Pfeiffer bacillus 
or of any other bacillus or coccus, 
except the one mentioned above, 
that it will produce influenza when 
inoculated into animals, or that it 
can be recovered from these ani- 
mals after infection. 

In foe absence of proof of this 
kind, foe statement that the 
bacillus is present in the throats of 
all influenza patients does not 
cany us much farther. It is. in all 
probability. So are other bacilli. 
Admittedly these “residents” may 
and do afflict severe illness once 
the resistance which normally 
holds them at bay is broken down. 
It is exceedingly improbable that 
they themselves are the agents 
which initiate the attack. 

This is foe reason why vaccina- 
tion against influenza is not gener- 
ally advised. You cannot vaccinate 
against a disease the exact cause of 
which is in doubt (though now that 
Major Graeme Gibson's discovery 
has been announced, a vaccine of a 
new kind may possibly be avalable 
soon). The best use that can be 
made of vaccination at present is to 
inoculate against the “residents", 
the germs which lie constantly in 
wait for their host, and visit 
pneumonia and blood-poisoning 
upon him when he is weak. And 
there are, as has been pointed out 
before in these columns, objections 
even to this course. 

Many announcements of “cures" 
of the disease have been made. The 
public should realize that probably 
upwards of 80 per cent of all cases 
of uncomplicated influenza in this 
epidemic have got well by them- 
selves—' when pneumonia has su- 
pervened it has, of course, been a 
different story*. It is easy to see that 
an individual treating a limited 
number of cases in some particular 
way, by some particular serum or 
drug, might easly have recoveries 
in 100 per cent of his patients. He 
would ascribe this good result to 
his drug or serum. In point of fact 
his patients would have recovered 
is any case. . . 


Meaningful terms 


From Mrs S. E. A orhury 
Sir. What rigorous training and 
searching examinations would my 
humble daily cleaner have io 
undergo to qualify as an “environ-

Fierce bidding for royal pictures 


By Geraldine Norman 

Sale Room Correspondent 

An album of watercolours 
that belonged to Queen Vic- 
toria was sold at Sotheby's 
yesterday on behalf of an 
unnamed descendant for 
£I3&325. 

Most of the drawings had 
been given to Victoria, though 
she purchased a few of them 
and they had been kept in the 
album ever since. That meant 
that they were m pristine 
condition with imfaded col- 
ours. 

The combination of royal 
provenance and superb condi- 
tion made for some startlingly 
high prices. 

An enchanting watercolour 
by Winterhalter, her favourite 
portraitist, of Prince Arthur 
aged three dressed up as his 
ancestor. King Henry VIII. 
sold for £18,700 (esrimat 
£5,000-£8,000) to H-Fritz- 
Denneville, a London dealer. 

Other royal or historic sub- 
jects were also fiercely com- 
peted for. Eugene Lamps 
watercolour of “The Transla- 
tion of the Ashes of Napoleon" 
to the Iovalides on December 
15, 1840 with soldiers parad- 
ing, packed crowds and even a 
group of spectators on the roof 
of the Iovalides itself , made 
£15,400 (estimate £2,000- 
£3,000) to Mackinnon. 

A watercolour of Elizabeth, 
Empress of Austria driving a 
horse sleigh in the park of 
Schonbnmn secured £13,200 
(estimate £2.000-£3.000). The 
romantic empress, known as 
SissL was the daughter of the 
Duke of Bavaria and a famous 
horsewoman who fretted at the 
restraints iayed on her by the 
Austrian court. Sotheby's had 
not identified the name of the 
artist. 

Six minor drawings from the 
album failed to find buyers and 
the cheapest was a “Study of 
an old woman" by an unknown 
German artist at £55 (estimate 
£200-£30Q). 

The top price in the 
watercolour sale was £55.000 
(estimate £40,000-£60,000) for 
a very detailed view of “Paris 
from the river Seine" by 



Prince Arthur as King Henry VI 1 1, by Winterhalter 


Thomas Shorter Boys dated to 
the early 1830s, a new auction 
price record for the artist It 
was bought by Morton Morris. 
Another Boys, a view of “The 
High Street Shrewsbury" was 
left unsold at £9,200 (estimate 
£12,000418.000). 

The set of 53 feather bound 
volumes recording ail the 
game shot by the Earl de Grey, 
2nd Marquess of Ripon, be- 
tween 1871 and 1923 together 
with 14, notebooks dating from 
1865 and 30 game cards from 
various estates, including San- 


dringham , were sold by 
Sotheby's Sussex yesterday 
for £48,400 (estimate £30,000- 
£50,000) to an English private 
collector. 

Acknowledged as the finest 
shot of his time, Ripon was a 
dose friend of George V, 
treasurer to Qneen 
Alexandras connoisseur and 
good amateur artist- his game 
books are filled with amusing 
sketches as well as enormous 
statistics. 

In 1884, for instance, be shot 
JO red deer, 3,073 grouse. 


3323 partridges, 4^347 pheas- 
ants, 70 snipe, 50 wild duck. 
20 wild geese. 134 woodcock, 
713 hares, L896 rabbits and 
407 “various’*. He died as be 
had lived; “At the last drive 
Lord Ripon killed 51 grouse, 
and at 3J5pm while the last 

birds were being brought in be 

felj down dead." 

A 12-bore hammer non- 
ejector gun, one of a set of 
■ three built by Purdeys for 
Lord Ripon in 1890, sold for 
£6,600 (estimate £3,000- 
£5,000). The gun sale totalled 
£28&585 with D per cent 

unsold. 

Late nineteenth century ivo- 
ry carvings and late, seven- 
teenth century Kakiemon 
porcelain were the most popu- 
lar features of Sotheby's 
morning sale of Japanese 
works of art yesterday which 
totalled £417475 with seven 
per cent left unsold. 

A 15-inch ivory figure of a 
hunter by Ishikawa - Komei 
sold for £20,900 (estimate 
£5.000^8,000) to Fppknra a 
Japanese dealer, setting a new 
auction price record for an 
ivory carring of the Me$p 
period (1868-012). 

The Japanese normally look 
on these hue carvings as 
tourist hems and leave the 
market to Westerners but in 
this case the sculptin’ was the 
founder of toe Tokyo school of 
ivory carvers and Japanese 
bidders showed that they took 
his work very seriously indeed. 
A nine-inch Kakiemon porce- 
lain bottle with fine landscape 
decoration made another top 
price at £14300 (estimate 
£5,000-£7,000). 

A big tile panel recounting 
the story of Cinderella made 
by Morris and Co to designs 
by Burne-Jones and Philip 
Webb for the famous Victori- 
an watercolonrist, Myles 
Birket Foster, proved the star 
torn of Phillips* morning sale 
of Art Nouveau selling for 
£12.100 (estimate £3,000- 
£5,000) to the Fine Art Soci- 
ety. The sale totalled £177.554 
with 12 per cent left unsold.

Science report 

How fish use electrical signals 

By BQl Johnstone, Technology Correspondent 


The social and mating be- 
haviour of fish, which commu- 
nicate and navigate using 
electrical currents generated 
by their own bodies, is being 
studied by scientists at Shef- 
field University. 

The researchers in the de- 
partment of psychology, sup- 
ported by landing from tie 
Science and Engineering Re- 
search Council have been 
studying these novel electrical 
patterns in bony fish which 
possess electrical sensing abil- 
ities. 

The two orders known to 
have these electrical sensing 
qualities are the South Ameri- 
can gymnotifonnes (knife fish) 
and the African 
mormyriformes (elephant nose 
fish and relatives). 

The Sheffield work is stody- 

K ' ! gynmotid group in the 
tory and in their natural 
habitat in tbe rivers, forests 
and coastlines of French Guia- 
na. The electric poises are 


generated from the fishes' 
tails, called electric organ 
discharges(EOD). 

These pulses, which are oue 
to two milliseconds long with a 
peak of three volts, are repeat- 
ed at definable frequencies 
between 10 and 100 hertz. 

The poises generate a small 
electric field around the fish. 
The exact shape of the field 
depends on the immediate 
environment, the conductivity 
of the water and the properties 
of the objects and boundaries 
close to the fish. 

The researcberssay: "The 
distortion of the field pattern 
informs the electrosensory 
system of the position, conduc- 
tivity and relative movements 
of objects. Each EOD gives 
the fish a ‘snapshot* electrical 
view of the surroundings, pro- 
viding it with an active naviga- 
tion system unmatched by its 
competitors in the nocturnal 
aquatic world**. 

This system helps the fishes 


to detect objects within a range 
of 10 centimetres and commu- 
nicate with each other over 
three metres. 

The work at Sheffield has 
concentrated on the social 
behaviour which results from 
the electrical phenomena. The 
fish are able to code these 
electrics} signals to threaten 
an enemy or to indicate their 
readiness for mating. 

“More recently our atten- 
tion has switched to the rela- 
tively invariant EOD 
waveforms which is fixed for 
an individual for much of its 
lifetime," say researchers. “In 
nearly every case there are 
species, sex and age does 
within the pulse itself. The 
EOD is therefore rich in 
information potentially useful 
in a variety of social 
behaviours".

March 11. He was 74, . 

He was born Saunders 
Tedddl Terrv on December 
24. 1911. Blind in both eyes by 
the lime he was 16 as a result 
of separate accidents, he grew 
up in Durham, North Caroli- 
na, where be evolved hfe 
emotive, vocal blues style oh

medicine shows. 

In the scare of the Depres- 
sion fie teamed up with two 
other blind musicians, one of 
them the legendary Blind Boy 
Fuller, with whom be was 10 
make a number of recordings. 

He made his New Yoric debut 
in the celebrated Spirituals to 
Swing concert at Canxegie 
HaU in 1939. 

After Blind Boy Fuller's 
death in 1941 he joined forces 
with the vocalist and guitarist 
Brownie McGhee, with whom 
a fruitful association was to 
last for over forty years. 

In 1946-47 he appeared in 
the Broadway show. Finian's 
Rainbow, for which his com- 
position “Hootin’ tbe Blues" 
was used as a prelude, and in 
1936 he was in Cat on a Hot 
Tin. Roof.' 

With McGhee, Terry main- 
tained a busy touring schedule 
which frequently involved 





two overseas more a year. 
They were heard at folk and 
blues festivals, throughout the 
USA and Canada and made 
lengthy visits 10 Britain', and 
Europe over ibe years. In I960 
they were a great success on a 
tour of India and they visited 
Australians 1963. 

Despite a lifestyle which 
became necessarily: urban. 
Terry' remained an unspoiled 
country' blues artist Almost to 
the end fie' was capable of

Bernard Lafourcade, an au- 
thority on modern literature 
and on ’Wyndham Lewis is 
particular, died on March 2 in 
his native Grenoble after a 
long illness. He was 51. . 

The son of Professor 
Georges Lafourcade. the biog- 
rapher of Swinburne, he was a 
brilliant scholar who carried 
forward with learning, exuber- 
ance and style, the role of. 
bridge-builder between his 
own culture and Angjo-Saxo- 
ny. 

He wrote both in English 
and in French, introdoting, 
editing and annotating splen- 
did new editions of fioftm by 
Lewis for the Blade Sparrow 
Press of California, and pub- 
lishing essays which east fresh. 
Gallic light on whole areas of 
literature and. art. in which 
Lewis had concerned himself. 

Lafourcade translated half- 
a-dozen of Lewis’s works into . 
French, thereby giving him his 
first airing in tbe land so 
revered by the author of Tarr. 


Lately he and bis wife, 
Pierrette, bad made available 
10 French readers a sparkltng 
selection of that pugnacious 
Briton’s judgements on 
France. 

In addition, be coSaborated 
with. Bradford Morrow to 
produce* comprehensive bib- 
hography of Lewis. . 

Educated at Grenoble, "Ox- 
ford -and the Sorixrone. 
Lafourcade lectured in English 
Literature at the University of 
Savoie. Chambfty. The audi- 
ence who heard him speak 
during die Lewis centennial 
symposium at ihe Tate in 
1982 came away envious of 
his classes at Chambdry. 

Perhaps his finest legacy is 
his' compilation of Lewis's 
early fiction under the title 
The Complete Wild Body ; of 
which one English reviewer 
said; “Ji is a pleasure to salute 
a scholarly edition of such 
exemplary beauty and 
darity” 


SENOR JOSE MARTINEZ 


Senor Jose Martinez, a 
Spanish publisher in exile 
during the Franco regime 
whose press, Ruedo lberico. 
printed many books which 
were circulated among the 
opposition in Spain in those 
years, has died in obscurity in 
Madrid. He was 64. . 

Born in Valencia, Martinez 
fought in an anarchist column 
in the Spanish Civil War. 
Afterwards he was arrested 
but being a minor, he was sent 
to a reformatory, where he 
spent two- and-a-half yeans 

Following a second arrest, 
he fled, in 1948, into exile in 
Paris, where in 1961, with a 
fellow opponent of the Franco 
regime, Nicolas Sanchez 
AJboxnoz, he founded Ruedo 


Jberico for the pu r p o s e , initial- 
ly, of publishing Gerald 
Brciinan> The Spanish Laby- 
rinth. 

. Subsequently he published 
scores of books which were 
proscribed by censors of the 
Franco regime but which were 
smuggled into Spain and had 
wide currency among the op- 
position. 

• Their authors included not 
only ' Brennan, but Hugh 
Thomas. Gabriel Jackson and 
a long list of Spanish writers. 

Martinez returned to Spain 
in 1978, and soon afterwards 
bis publishing venture was 
closed. He subsequently 
worked as an editor 
andtransiator.

Television 



criminal 



TV Eje:(ITV) reported from 
Palermo on the trial of 474 
suspected Mafia members 
which is taking place in _ 
specially constructed, fortified 
court building and is expected 
to last for 18 months. The 
judges, jurors and lawyers 
arrive : each day in armoured 
cars, and police guards an 
posted at their homes at night. 

Hie background to the 
is a period of almost ten years 
ia which the Siritian Mafia 
attempted to corner the Euro- 
pean end of the world trade in 
heroin, importing the drag 
from the .East, processing it in 
huge factories and sipplyrng it 
to the United States. The 
turnover of this business was 
estimated at around £lm. 
day. 

Hard facts were evidently 
not easy to come by in this 
investigation, which did tittle 
more than uncover the tip of a 
criminal iceberg. However one 
local politician estimated that 
one-fifth of the commercial life 
of Palermo was attributable to 
the. false prosperity conse- 
quent oa-Mafia activity. 

While legal action contin- 
ued in the baiiding nicknamed 
"The Bunker", school teach- 
ers wore supervising courses of 
anti-Mafia studies and en- 
couraging small children to 
express in drawings whdt the 
criminal organization meant to 
them. 

To the American writer Sanl 
Bellow all this would probably 
have seemed part of a mean- 
ingless flow of media events. 
In Voices (Channel ~4) he 
discussed the direction of mod- 
ern life with the British writer 
Martin Amis and the historian 
Michael Ignatieff. Ail three 
repeatedly expressed concern 
that the public world of televi- 
sion was invading the private 
world of individual responsi- 
bility and reducing modern Itie 
to an incoherent, piecemeal 
experience — a sort of Chinese 
meal for the human spirit, 
satisfying in the short term but 
soon producing a renewed 
hunger. 

Even death. Bellow argued, 
had become less an authenti c 
pari of life than part of the 
meamngjessikmof&eztis. All 
this sounded' extremely fine; 
Voices is the kind of television 
programme which aims to give 
the newer the experience of 
sitting at the dimer-table of a 
spiritual master. 

However, both writers were 
so willing to agree with each 
other that the quality of then- 
research was never ques- 
tioned. While they spoke elo- 
quently of a channel-hopping, 
distracted society with the 
attention-span of a flea, it was 
bard to imagine either of them 
actually taking part in it

Echo Park is one of Hollywood's 
hallowed sites. Dozens of Keystone 
slapstick comedies were shot there 
in the - innocent years before the 
First World War; Charlie Chaplin's 
outrageous little tramp flirted on its 
benches, was chased through its 
shrubberies by irate husbands and 
deposited scores of stout parties m 
ibe lake. Later the evangelist Aimee 
Semple MacPherson chose Echo 
Park for her gospel temple, where 
Marilyn Monroe was taken by her 
devout, demented mother to be 
baptized. 

The park is still there, though the 
residential area around has de- 
clined, becoming, the ha veil of 
minor Bohemians, new Hispanic 
immigrants and impoverished opti- 
mists tike May and Jonathan and 
August, the chief inhabitants of 
Robert Dorahelm’smarveDous'filin 
Echo Park. - 

They share anold duplex house 
that has seen better days, socially 
speaking; and there, prey to the 
tinsel lures of Hollywood they 
devote themselves to their dreams. 
The charm is that these dreams are 
so modest and meagre. May wants 
to be an actress but convinces 
herself that her current work as a 
srripogram girl is the best possible 
framing. Jonathan, the. pizza deliv- 
ery boy.' is a secret song-writer: 
August, an Austrian body-builder, 
brings the household a taste of 
stardom with an appearance in a 
deodorant commercial, though he 
never achieves his higher ambition, 
to ;shake •; hands . with- Arnold 
Schwarzenegger, 


■The family is completed by May's 
eight-year-old son Henry, who is 
growing up fast and watches with a 
shrewd and critical eye as May - 
despite her insistence on the perils 
' of sex and money - wavers between 
the two men, innocently inflicting 
injury upon their egos and emo- 
tions. Light and funny though it all 
is. we are still made to fee! acutely 
with poor August's assorted humili- 
ations, and young Henry's trauma 
when he chances to witness one of 
May's less distinguished strip per- 
formances. These poor fools are 
very real people, whose feelings 
matter. There is. too. an uplifting 
optimism about Echo Pork: May 
and Jonathan and August may be 
victims of tbe Hollywood illusion, 
but they will always win through by 
their resilience and capacity for 
affection. 

The performances are exemplary 
and irresistible. Susan Dey comes 
from television; Tom Huice. as 
Jonathan, intelligently follows up 
his Amadeus success with a shoe- 
string assignment that exploits all 
his. charm and skills; Michael 
Bowen, who gives August an impec- 
cable Austrian accent as well as 
rippling muscles, is another clever 
Carradine brother; and Christopher 
Walker is a wonderfully down-to- 
earth and attractive child actor. 

The most surprising aspect of this 
funny, touching piece of conterapo- 
rary Americana is that it is an 
Austrian production (apart from the 
development finance put up by Bi0 
Ryman of the Rolling Stones, who 
also contributed a song and acted as 
musical consultant). The writer, 
Michael Ventura, is American; the 
Austrian director Robert Dombelm 
is a 38-year-old veteran of numer- 
ous documentaries, who won an 
Oscar for Children of Theatre Street. 
More recently his tribute to 
Nijinsky's eccentric daughter Kyra, 
She Dances Alone , revealed the 
qualities of indulgence, amusement 
and respect which elevate Echo 
Park. 

Tbe regular formula of Steven 
Spielberg-produced adventure films 
belongs to a tradition that links 
Gothick romance with The Wizard, 
The Rover, Saturday morning mati- 
nee serials and Flash Gordon. 
Somewhere around tbe halfway 
point the heroes .of any Spielberg 
fantasy are sure to find themselves 
in a maze of dark, mysterious 
tunnels that lead to subterranean 
realms, a decorative underwork! 
where, they do desperate tattle with 



Tom Huice as Jonathan the pizza delivery boy In Echo Park, intelligently following up his success in 
Amadeus with a shoestring assignment that exploits all his charm and skill 


the forces of eviL They emerge 
victorious of course, but only after 
overcoming rituals of fire, 'flood, 
earthquake and holocaust that seem 
like lingering memories of medieval 
notions of hell. 

So the heroes of Young Sherlock 
Holmes and the Pyramid of Fear 
find their way from the decorum of 
mid-Victorian London to the pre- 
scribed inferno. The villains, an 
Egyptian religious sect, have chosen 
Wapping (of all familiar places) to 
build a great underground pyramid 
where they practise human sacri- 
fice. The pyramid is razed and its 
worshippers are annihilated thanks 
to the teenage Holmes, conducting 
his first big case with portentous 
ingenuity, nerve and improbable 
good luck. 

A prefatory title declares that the 
film is not based on authentic 
Conan Doyle stories but is "an 
affectionate speculation” about the 
formative years of the great detec- 
tive. The star of his school be 
befriends a podgy, good-natured 
custard-tart fancier called Watson, 
and astounds his peers with feats of 
deduction. The strategy of choosing 
this part of Holmes's life is self- 
evident: the teenage spectators who 
make up most of today's audience 
are thus given heroes of their own 
age-group. The main parts are 
amiably and professionally sus- 
tained by, Nicholas Rowe, 19-year- 
old Etonian son of a Conservative 


MP, and Alan Cox. the (in this 
instance! owlish 1 5-vear-old son of 
the actor Brian Cox.' 

Despite vagueness over the peri- 
od setting, the first, establishing 
section of the film, set in the school, 
is pleasant enough, with a wealth of 
juicy character parts. The Pyramid 
of Fear pan is standard Spielberg 
fare, aimed straight at the kids, and 
H7th special effects in the ascendan- 
cy- 

The problem today is that special 
effects have arrived at such seem- 
ingly effortless expertise that they 
cease to astonish — except with such 
rare novelties as the animation of a 
transparent and two-dimensional 
knight, straight from a stained-glass 
window. 

The film was directed by Barry 
Levinson, whose earlier, more so- 
phisticated works were The Natural 
and Diner. The writer, Chris Co- 
lumbus, cut his teeth on rather less 
sophisticated scripts in the same 
idiom as ibis. Gremlins and Goo- 
nies. 

Jagged Edge is a thriller effective- 
ly enough written (by Joe Eszterhaz) 
and directed (by Richard Mar- 
quand) to hold the interest even 
though the mechanics are exposed 
and the denouement may be 
guessed half an hour before it 
comes. Jeff Bridges plays a rich man 
on trial for the murder of his young 
wife (a nasty sex crime, but that is 
the taste of the day); Glenn Close is 


the attorney whose determination 
to win his acquittal is motivated by 
guilt over an earlier case mishan- 
dled as well as her growing vulnera- 
bility to the accused man's charm. 

Comedy and catastrophe are 
proverbially divided only by a hair's 
breadth; and this is the trouble with 
Clockwise, directed by Chrisiopher 
Morahan from a script by Michael 
Frayn, ii has a classic comic form, 
the escalation of misfortunes; but 
after a cheerful start the misfortunes 
become too numerous and too. 
painful for laughter. John Cleese, 
the headmaster of a model compre- 
hensive school, is elected to the 
unwonted glory of Chairman of the 
Headmasters' Conference. His jour- 
ney to this momentous event is so 
beset that by the time he arrives - 
wearing the clothes ofa shorter man 
and pursued by police and lunatics 
— his mind has snapped completely. 
The ending is as comic as King 
Lear. 

Cleese is funny where he may be. 
and this is mostly in the opening, 
before catastrophe takes hold. Some 
crazed authoritarian cousin of Basil 
Fawlty. he stands in his office 
window, administering the school 
with tire aid of binoculars and a 
public address system: or harangues 
the assembly hall with the awful, 
unforgettable oratory of headmas- 
ters.

There is usually a good reason 
why an "undiscovered master- 
piece” by a great composer 
remains unplaved. Debussy's

composition (the French have 
not exactly flaunted it. either), 
is no masterpiece* Neverthe- 
less the flaws in this20-minuie

ussy's Iasi works and mostly 
orchestrated - by Charles 
Koechlin, stem chiefly from 
its unbalanced scenario, con- 
structed by a Daily Telegraph 
literary editor for an English 
ballerina who seems to have 
been as nutty as a fruitcake but 
who paid Debussv handsome- 
ly. 

it depicts an Egyptian dam- 
sel dancing herself to death in 


front of a sun-god to save her 
city from maurading barbar- 
ians (an unpromising ploy, 
but apparently successful). 
One can imagine Torvill and 
Dean doing it nicely. 

Debussy follows this plot 
too slavishly. The musical 


Pascal Tortelier was better at 
obtaining idiomatic instru- 
mental timbres and well- 
judged balances from the 
London Philharmonic Or- 
chestra than in demanding a 
tight ensemble or instilling the 
appropriate feel for rubaio.

instead a conventionally pic-

However, the dances them- 
selves and the throbbing, low- 
timbred ostinaio that opens 
the whole work contain much 
fine writing: quintessential 
foiling chromatic motifs for 
woodwind, sinuously twisting 
string tunes and mysterious, 
abruptly appearing fanfares 
are woven together artfully.

orchestral poem La Peri (an- 
other undeservedly neglected 
work, foil of silky effects) Yan

and orchestra gpve a careful 
account of this sparse, exact 
and exquisite music. .. 

Not that one was much 
aware of this background 
when the ardently lyrical solo- 
ist, FeUx Schmidt, was play- 
ing. He scampered with a deft, 
light bow through the im-

tonal beauty at an altitude few

go with the disastrous Butter- 
fly notices. Enter Doria 
Manfredi, who tells us that she 
is Doria Manfredi and that she 
came to work for Mr Puccini 
when she was 16. 

Giulio Ricondi, as Puccini’s 
ally, periodically potters on as 
a fatherly party, warning his 
protege on the perils of indis- 
criminate fornication. But 
when we meet rival composers 
there is no telling one buffoon- 
ish petit maitre from another. 

Whatever light comic atmo- 
sphere fitfully develops is 
extinguished whenever Wil- 
liam Blezard and his six 
players strike up the next 
number. Torn out of context, 
the music was bound to bring 
the narrative to a halt and it 
would have been better if Mr 
Ray had simply accepted that. 
Instead, he has tried to relate 
the songs to the events; so that 
when Puccini announces that 


he lost his father in childhood 
that is a cue for Jacinia 
Mulcahy to launch into “O 
mio babbino caro”. Later, 
when Puccini is wildfowling 
his way through the operatic 
capitals, we get the amazing 
spectacle of Elvira, the heavy- 
weight mistress of the Via- 
reggjo mansion, shambling on 
in a tea-gown with lighted 
cigarette to pour her matrimo- 
nial grievances into “Un bel 
di". 

Palm Court orchestration is 
one thing: but there is no 
comparable way of scaling 
down the vocal lines. Christo- 
pher Renshaw’s company do 
their gallant besL but there are 
no operatic voices there; and I 
leave you to imagine the effect 
of a bald description of 
Puccini's throat operation 
backed with a quavering ac- 
count of “In questa reggia”.

Elegy for Young 
Lovers 

Elizabeth Hall 

Elegy for Young Lovers is all 
about fake and disemegrated 
personalities, which may be 
good reason why its own 
identity is so divided, present- 
ing us wiih a fiercely unpleas- 
ant libretto joined, or more 
often not joined, to a delecta- 
ble score. The fact that it had 
not been seen in London — 
though there were productions 
at Glyndeboume in the 1960s 
and by Scottish Opera a 
decade ago — made it a 
specially suitable choice for 
the London Sinfoniwia’s trib- 
ute to Henze in the year of his 
sixtieth birthday. 

But the performance will 
not have added to the credit of 
the later Auden, or more 
particularly that of the later 
Kallman, whose share in the 
text would seem, on both 
external and internal evi- 
dence. to have been considera- 
bly the greater. 

The supposed subject-mat- 
ter is simply not serious. It is 
inconceivable that poetry 
could be manufactured by so 
grotesque a manipulation of 
events and emotions;, or that 
such manipulation could be 
justified even if great verse did 
resulL On the other hand, 
though, ii is entirely possible 
for the authors of a libretto to 
manipulate their characters. 

Toni and Elizabeth, the 
young lovers clegiacized, ev- 
entually win through to digni- 
ty and lucidity (they are 
allowed this when they have 
consented to die), but their 
earlier coming together re- 
duces everyone to the banal. 
Lines line “Elizabeth is nice, 
but she's not for you” strike a 
very odd note alongside the 
moments of lyric escape and 
the quirky doggerel in the style 
of The Rake's Progress. 

The chief difference from 
that other opera, of course, is 
the lack of a placing in 
convention, which allows 
Henze's music to apply itself 
to the text as expressionist 
drama, thereby effectively un- 
dercutting its pretensions. 
Within this style, within any 
artistic style since Puccini, a 
love-duet is impossible: the 
music simply shows the hol- 
lowness of the libretto at this 
point Where music and words 
do join hands is in depicting 
the awfolness of the poet 
Mittenhofer. 

Michael Rennison's pro- 
duction was discreet (except 
for a-.< bold revelation of the 
glaciated bridegroom “nude as 
the sun”), with minimal 
props, grey costumes, dim 
lighting and lecterns at which 
the principals could keep their 
scores handy. But this was an 
advantage in leaving the lime- 
light for the rich cool of 
Henze's chamber orchestral 
textures, brilliantly and intri- • 
cately realized by the Sin- 
fonietia under his own 
direction. 

The cast was excellent Ste- 
phen Roberts was an irascible 
lout of a poet. Linda Hirst an 
embittered Lina and Penelope 
Walmsley-Gark an astonish- 
ingly accurate, phosphores- 
cent exponent of the mad 
woman's colorarrura; Teresa 
Cahill and Philip Langridge. 
the one tenderly radiant to the 
others fine-nerved audacity, 
were the lovers.

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 oyer £900 
million in the past four years. 

During that period our shareholders have 
reaped the benefit. 

Our earnings per share have increased by 169

This is the third consecutive 
: fall in growth rate and is down 
from 8 per, cent in the first, 
quarter. 

International call volume 
moved ahead by 10 per cent, 
compared with 12 per cent for 
the nine month period as a 
whole. Telecom blamed the 
falling oil price for a reduction 
in telecommunications traffic 


nations, particularly the 
iddle East and Singapore. 

The finance director, Mr 
Doug ; Perryman, said that 
with telephone income run- 
ning lower than expected, the 
level of expenditure had also 
been cut back but would be 
close to £2 billion for the full 
year. ' 

Expenditure . in the nine 
months on digital exchange 
equipment was £259 million 
out of total capital expendi- 


ture of £1.373 million, up 
from £1.362 million. But by 
the end of this financial year 
the number of lines connected 
to local digital System X 
exchanges will be “nowhere 
near" the 1.8 million forecast 
a year ago. 

Telecom’s 1.6 million 
shareholders must pay the 
final 40p instalment on their 
shares by April 9. The share 
price will be quoted on a fully 
paid basis from April 1 and 
shareholders who want to sell 


without making the payment 
have until March 27. 

If allowance is made for the 
changed capital structure of 
the company which took effect 
in August 1984, profits for the 
nine-month period were 20 
per cent ahead on turnover 10 
per cent higher at £6,160 
million. 

Total operating costs in- 
creased by 9 percent to £4.624 
million, including a 5.8 per 
cent increase in the salaries 
bill. In the drive to increase 
efficiency. 2.000 jobs were lost 
in the third quarter, makin, 
3.000 since the beginning o 
the financial year. 

About £74 million of the

revenue came from the last 
two price rises and in the light 
of the company’s record re- 
sults. the Telecom Users Asso- 
ciation ' yesterday called for 
prices to be reduced 

Mr Perryman denied that 
increased charges accounted 
for the fall in volume growth 
and pointed to a 3.7 per cent 
increase in the number of 
customer telephone lines over 
the past year to just over 21 
million. 


Jaguar 40% US-owned 


Forty per cent of Jaguar 
shares are now held in the 
United States, spread among 
6.000 investors, none of 
whom have more than 5 per 
cent, Mr John Egan, cfaurman 
of Jaguar, said yesterday. 

But he pointed out that 
there was no evidence to 
support suggestions that Gen- 
eral Motors had built tip a 15 
per cent stake in the company. 

Mr Egan, commenting on 
reports that the GM had been 
acquiring . shares in Jaguar 
through nominees, said: “It 
would be most, discourteous 
for them to have done so.. 
They are a fine company, and . 
I . would' not expect them to 
operate in the dark." • 

Jaguar is bid-proof until the 
Government’s controlling 
‘golden share” expires in 
1990, but Mr Egan said that in 
the'^meamime he could hot 


By Cliff Feltham 

ensure the ownership pattern 
of the former BL company. 

.. “If in London we are seen as 
a. Midlands metal basher on a 
price earnings of eight and m 
the United States as a luxury 
car maker with a PE of 12 then 
shares ;wfll transfer from one 
market to the other.” 

The Jaguar profits for 1985 
of £121 million, up 33 per 
cent, announced yesterday, 
were a shade below some 
stock market expectations but 
the shares still rose 15p to 
470p. 

Mr Egan said that world- 
wide sales had increased by 15 
per cent to 37,952, with pur- 
chases of the XJ-S sports car 
rising by 28 per cent. Record 
sales were achieved through- 
out Europe while in the US, 
Jaguar's biggest market, sales 
rose by 10 per cent to 20430, 
with demand exceeding sup- 


ply and the waiting list begin- 
ning to lengthen slightly. 

. In Britain the steady 
growth of the past few years 
continued with sales of more 
than 8,000, the highest since 
1978. 

Mr Fgan hedged on when 
the long-awaited XJ40 model 
would be introduced, indicat- 
ing that it would be later this 
year or next with most follow- 
ers betting on an autumn 
launch. 

But he said that the increase 
ofbetween £10 million and £20 
million in costs arising from 
the launch and build-up of 
stocks would would lead to a 
“flat year” afterwards. 

Jaguar was now on the verge 
of stepping up production to 
1,000 cars a week for the first 
rime. 


Haslemere 
steps up 
bid battle 

By Judith Huntley 
Commercial Property 
Correspondent .... 

Haslemere Estates is inten- 
sifying its fight to stop 
Rodamco Property, part of the 
Dutch investment manage- 
ment group Robeco. taking 
over the company. 

It is launching an advertise- 
ment campaign in Holland's 
leading newspapers telling 
Rodamco shareholders that 
their company's dawn raid is 
“not cricket." 

Haslemere says that such 
tactics would .not be allowed 
on Rodamco's home ground 
and that contested takeover 
bids are unheard of in Europe. 

The gentlemanly attitude 
which hasprevailed until now 
in the contested £179. million 
bid is set to change as 
Haslemere toughens its 
stance. The property company 
has called in another public 
relations company. Streets Fi- 
nancial, to help Broad Street 
Associates in its counter offen- 
sive. 

Haslemere's main defence 
rests on its recent property 
portfolio revaluation which 
resulted in a net asset value of 
728p per share. Rodamco is 
offering 600p per share in cadi 
for the 76 per cent of 
Haslemere it does not already 
own. 

- It has extended its offer 
until April I and so far has not 
increased its price, but it may- 
do so after April I. 

Haslemere’s shares have 
been trading at about 630p 
and the putch predator could 
well raise its offer to match, 
that price. 


£21m buyout bid 
for Raybeck 

By Our City Staff 

A group of senior managers a quoted compan y wi thout the 


at Raybeck. the lossmaking 
manufacturer of Berkertex 
bridal and women’s wear, 
yesterday launched a true 
management buyout offer, 
worth £21.6 million, which — 
if successful — will lead to the 
resignation of the board. 

More than 10 employees, 
including five principal man- 
agers, are making the offer 
through a newly-formed un- 
quoted company, Legibus 
687, with the financial backing 
of several financial institu- 
tions including Candover In- 
vestments, Globe Investment 
Trust and Bectra Investment 
Trust 

The four main board direc- 
tors of Raybeck, who speak for 
8.9 per cent of the shares, have 
agreed to leave the company if 
the buyout is successful and 
they are recommending the 
offer. 

This is believed to be the 
first • time a management 
buyout has been mounted for 


participation of the directors. 

Raybeck, which formerly 
owned Bourne & 
Hollingsworth, the London 
department store, last year 
sold its lossmaking Lord John, 
Werff Brothers and Best Sell- 
ers retail businesses for £12.25 
million. Since the sale the 
company has traded profit- 
ably, but for the year to 
January 25 is expected to 
show a loss. 

The terms of the offer, 
which is being carried out 
through a scheme of arrange- 
ment, are 477p in cash for 
every 10 ordinary shares and 
115p for each preference 
share. The shares yesterday 
closed 1.5p higher at 45.5p, up 
from 39p last week before the 
announcement of an immi- 
nent bid. 

If the buyout succeeds, the 
chairman of Legibus will be 
Mr Trevor Morgan, the for- 
mer chairman of Tirapsons 
and a former director of Next. 


Sedgwick up £16.3m 


Sedgwick Group has de- 
clared a final dividend of 
7.75p for the year to Decem- 
ber 3 1. with profits after tax up 
io £86.1 million from £69.7 
million; . 

Revenue was up to £581.5 
million (£456 million), operat- 
ing profit to £131.6 million 
(£96 million). and pretax prof- 
it to £124.3 million (£963 
million). 

The group has completed 
the divestment of its remain- 


ing Lloyd's managing agency 
interests which produced an 
extraordinary income of £7.1 
million. ' 

• Continued contraction of 
merchant shipping during the 
year hit the company's marine 
businesses and certain activi- 
ties in Singapore and Hong 
Kong. In Australia, the pro- 
gressive transfer of workers' 
compensation insurance to 
the public sector has necessi- 
tated efforts to- develop and 
extend other areas of interest- 


£3 billion 
profit 
for Shell 

By David Young 
Energy Correspondent 

Mr Peter Holmes, the chair- 
man of Shell, which yesterday 
announced profits of £3 bil- 
lion for last year, said that 
world oil prices would remain 
volatile even if the Organiza- 
tion of Petroleum Exporting 
Countries reached a new 
agreement in Geneva next 
week. 

“Unless Opec comes up 
with some workable con- 
straints. the downward pres- 
sure on prices would be 
expected to continue." he 
said. 

Despite the ups and downs, 
“Opec will survive”, he add- 
ed. 

Mr Peter Holmes also said 
that Opec had miscalculated 



Peter Holmes: “oU prices 
will stay volatile" 

when it thought that by driv- 
ing down oil prices it would 
force Britain to cooperate in 
production restraint because 
many North Sea fields would 
become unprofitable at 
present prices of around $14 a 
barrel. 

Shell is reviewing its North 
Sea exploration programme 
but no projects have been 
shelved 

Mr Holmes said that Opec 
attempts to involve non-Opec 
oil producers such as Britain 
and Norway in production 
restraint had’ failed. 

The Shell chairman added 
that he did not expect any 
agreement between Opec and 
non-Opec oil producers to 
restrain output. 

Shell's profits of £3.032 
million against £3.648 million 
in 1984 are in line with City 
expectations. The figures re- 
veal that the company wrote 
off £ 1 00 million at the end of 
the year in the value of oil 
stocks held, and £350 million 
for restructuring of refining 
operations in France and in 
Curacao. 

It also lost £396 million on 
foreign exchange operations 
because of the fall in the value 
of the dollar.Tempns, page 19

Shortage of skilled workers 
poses threat to output 

By Edward Townsend, Industrial Correspondent 
Industry leaders gave warn- to be placed on employment engineers for more than 12 

measures rather than tax arts. 


ing today of the consequences 
of the growing shortage of 
skilled workers and said that 
one in seven manufacturing 
companies believed -their pro- 
duction would softer. 

In a surrey published jointly 
by the Confederation of Brit- 
ish Industry and the Manpow- 
er Services Commission, the 
worst shortage' to emerge is of 
professional engineers. ■ 

Bnt more than a fifth of 
firms said that further Short- 
ages were Ijkely to emerge id 
the next' 12 months, with 
computer and management 
sen ices experts hard to find. 

The survey has been, pub- 
lished just five days before the 
Budget, hr which the CBX has 
beep pressing for the emphasis 


Eight per rent of firms, said 
labour shortages would re- 
strict their investment plans 
during .the next year, com- 
pared with only 6 per cent in a 
similar survey conducted in 
December 1984. 

Mr Bryan Nicholson, the 
chairman of the MSC, said too 
many companies still took the 
easy way out and preferred to 
poach experienced skilled peo- 
ple from other firms rather 
than (rain their own. 

The survey, covering 1,284 
employers, shows that 38 per 
cent of those reporting short- 
ages of skilled engineers said 
they expected the situation to 
worsen. Seventy one per rent 
mM they bad been short of 


months. 

Shr Terence Beckett, the 
CBI director general said : 
"Industry is alive to the fact 
that its output is being con- 
strained by shortages of key 
skills, and is making major 
efforts to rectify this through 
improved education and 
training.** 

More than £24 million had 
been put up by more than 200 
companies through the Infor- 
mation Technology Skills

nologists. 


If there were any lingering doubts 
that the Rank Organisation is under 
new management, they would have 
been dispelled yesterday. Rank's 
instant response to the Court ruling 
that the Independent Broadcasting 
Authority had acted withing its 
powers in vetoing Rank's bid for 
Granada Group was two-fold: it 
would appeal against Mr. Justice 
Mann's ruling and it would press 
ahead with its bid. Michael Gifford. 
Rank's chief executive, and his 
chairman. Sir Patrick Meaney, are on 
a high and in a mood to leap rivers. 

The IBA had declared on February 
25 that it woud no permit Rank to 
vote more than five per cent of 
Granada's shares. According to 
Granada's articles of association, 
only “an approved person" can vote 
more than five per cent, and the seal 
of approval has to be given by the 
IBA. The authority is dearly entitled 
to determine whether an independent 
television programme franchise, in 
this instance the franchise held by 
Granada Television for the north- 
west of England, can be sold (Thames 
to Carlton) or acquired by taking over 
the parent company. Rank is barking 
up the wrong legal tree. 

But if Rank is determined to buy 
Granada, even if the prize came 
without the TV franchise, it is right to 
continue with its bid. The offer made 
last month was five Rank for nkne 
Granada shares, with a cash alter- 
native of 275p.per Granada share. At 
last night's close the paper offer was 
worth 295p.and Granada stood at 
270p. A determined Granada board 
might not have too much difficulty in 
resisting these terms but a signifi- 
cantly higher Rank bid would make 
Granada shareholders, as well as the 
Granada board, stop and think. 
Having to consider the way 
shareholders might vote is an entirely 
new experience for the Granada 
board: before 1984 an undemocratic 
voting structure gave effective con- 
trol of the company to the Bernstein 
family. 

Price however, is only one of two 
major determinants of a successful 


takeover bid: the other is chemistry. 
Here Rank may be in danger of 
falling down - always a risk with 
gung-ho bidders. The important ele- 
ments in Granada are Alex Benstein, 
son of the last Cecil, his uncle, the ad- 
mirable, civilised Sidney (Lord Bern- 
stein), and Sir Denis Forman — in 
particular Alex. He is deeply con- 
scious of the Granada inheritance 
and acutely aware of Sidney’s brood- 
ing presence. He has Sidney’s 
stubbomess, but not his flair, and his 
father's rather shy modesty. His 
integrity is unquestionable but his 
powers of leadership are not strong. 
He has an abiding interest in artand 
he is obviously rich. Others like him 
might be tempted to take a board- 
room back seat and time to develop 
other interests. That is not his 
inclination. 

There are two critical factors about 
Granada Group's performance, past 
and future. In its three main busi- 
nesses — television, television rental 
and motorwy services — it grown 
successfully, through internal 
endeavour and through acquisition. 
When it has strayed into other areas, 
it has cut a poor figure. The second 
point is that merely by continuing to 
cultivate the existing businesses, 
Granada is firmly on course to 
generating cash flows toward and 
beyond the £200 million mark within 
three years. It would therefore make a 
great deal of sense to meld Granada 
with a similar group where its 
resources could be put to good use. 
That appears to be Alex Bernstein's 
strategic thinking: but part of his 
thinking is that he should be the bead. 
The link with Ladbroke seemed a 
strategic fit, though it too would 
probably have fallen fall of the IBA. It 
went no father than first base because 
Cyril Stein is not a man to hand over 
the top spot, however promising the 
synergy might have looked to them 
both. 

Rank might bludgeon its way to 
victory with cash and paper but it 
might not be too late for Sir Pat and 
Mr Gifford to think more about the 
chemistry. 


A tin gong for the LME 


The London Metal Exchange was its 
best this week when with speed and 
efficiency it brought the extraor- 
dinary tin crisis to a conclusion. At 
times during the four and a half 
months the affair dragged on the 
exchange had seemed out of its depth. 
The courtly arts of lobbying govern- 
ments and international 
organisations were largely foreign to 
the LME and the Byzantine complex- 
ities of the International Tin Council 
were quite impenetrable. But when 
the TinCo plan finally and abruptly 
collapsed and the buck was passed to 
the market to find a solution it was in 
its element 

No other market in the world could 
have organised with comparatively 
so little fuss the exchange in two 
dismal hours of cheques worth £150 
million, all drawn on the resources of 
members. In one fell swoop the LME 
settled securely the postions between 
members and between] members and 
their clients and departed tin trading, 
possibly for ever. London's status as 
the major world metal dealing centre 
was reasserted with such authority 
that brokers yesterday were already 
reporting a sharp increase in busi- 
ness. 

But the solution has raised new 
questions. What happens to the ITC ? 
Are there other international bodies 
ostensibly guaranteed by govern- 
ments whose debts may be equally 
insecure ? And where does the LME 
go from here ? 

Much is now in the hands of the 
lawyers, for whom it promises to be 
an unprecedented international bo- 
nanza. It will be a very important 
case or series of cases. The future of 
the ITC and of analgous bodies could 
well be determined by the outcome of 


cases which will almost certainly take 
years. The core of the argument is 
whether sovereign immunity can 
cover commercial contracts which 
include, for example, agreement that 
disputes should be put to arbitration 
under the rules of the LME. 

Many of those who have lost a 
great deal of money from the default 
of 22 countries, including Britain, 
may not wait that long, however. The 
banks have said that they will make 
borrowing on the Euromarket diffi- 
cult for the errant ITC members, and 
international institutions such as the 
World Bank and the International 
Monetary Fund might look closely 
these countries' requirements. 

Banks are more sanguine about the 
demonstration effect on international 
lending generally. The odd legal 
position of the ITC - answerable . 
mainly in no court at all - is not rep- 
licated by loan agreements with, say, 
Brazil or Nigeria. Besides, these 
countries decided early on in the debt 
crisis that it was more prudent in the 
long run to play the game. 

It is the LME which will continue 
to bear the brunt, despite the 
resourceful resolution of the debts for 
25.000 tonnes of tin between mem- 
bers. Everybody on the exchange 
expects to see ring dealing seats 
vacated over the coming months.The 
departure of Philip & Lion, while not 
directly caused by the tin crisis, 
shows how dangerous metal futures 
trading has become for all save the 
financially powerful On Thursday, 
even as self-congratulation was in the 
air. the LME admitted for the first 
lime that substantial changes may be 
needed to satisfy the Securities anbd 
Investments Board.

THE TIMES FRIDAY MARCH 14 1986 




FINANCE AND INDUSTRY 


19 


D. 




can be sure of 


Unless the Organization of 
Petroleum Exporting Coun- 
uira can agree a strategy 
which will reverse the oil 
price slide, oil company prof- 
iiswillgo in lore verse wii a 
vengeance next year. 

Even the' mighty Royal 
Dutch/Shell group will feel 
the pain as lower oil and gas 
prices start to bite. 

Oil and gas production 
makes up more than three- ' 
quarters of group earnings 
and this is where h will hurt, 
perhaps not as much as for 
some companies because, of 
the cushion afforded by gas 
where prices on some con- 
tracts wil] not fall as fast as 
the oil price. 

But with an oil price ill 
sterling terms possibly not 
much more than half its 1985 
level, the' production figures - 
will make gloomy reading. - 
As far as Shell is concerned, 
that is the end of the bad 
news. Theevidence for this is 
contained . in yesterday's 
statement of its results. 

■ Write-offs of . nearly £200 
million against downstream 
nfits cannot disguise the 
ct that this segment -has 
become, very profitable in- 
deed because of tumbling 
feedstocks costs. Excluding 
stock losses and write-offs in 
both years, it appears that the 
refining end of the business - 
nearly doubled its. profits in 
1985 compared with 1984. 

In 1986* this segment will 
continue to do well because 
consumer price . reductions 
for petrol and home heating 
oil are lagging behind the fell 
in oil prices: 

There is no evidence of a. 
price war developing at the 
petrol pump, despite the low 
spot prices. Unstable prices 
make for caution among 
buyers for cut-price pumps. 
They do not want to be 
caught holding stock while, 
prices fall further. 

Overcapacity in the indus- 
try means that it will be only 
a matter of time before 
margins are squeezed back to 
a more realistic level Let the 
iqeantime, refiners ate grab-' 
bing every opportunity to 
make up for years of losses 
and inadequate margins en- 
dured while the. sterling oil ' 
price was going up. 

Despite a faD in reported 
net income forj 985 of 17 per 
cent, the Shell dividend was 
increased by &1 per cent id 
35 pence for the yj^ar. Shears 
dependence’ on 'the upstream - 
will make lower proms inev- 
itable next . year too. 

The group has been criti- 
cised in the past for being 
mean to its shareholders. 
Now that earnings are begin- 
ning a period of decline, the 
dividend is unlikely to come 



under threat as it amounts to 
only 34 per cent of earnings 
per share. 

. Offering a gross yield of 6.6 . 
Per ant, it is not the highest 
yet Ming stock in the ofl patch, 
but . with £418 billion of cash 
and a long-term debt ratio of 
1 8 per cent, it must be ihe 
safest 

British Telecom 

British Telecom's share price 
performance relative to the 
market suggests that invest 
tors may have been reassess- 
ing just how much of a 
tour rating the company 


■V Since the October peak, the; 
price has underperformed the 

- FT-500 by about 12 per cent 

The market gave 
yesterday's nine months re-" 
suits to. December 1985 a 
raspberry and the price fell 12 
pence to 218. pence. A 16 per 
cent increase for the latest 
three months' pretax profits 
looks positively modest com- 
pared with the sort of in- 
creases some companies are 
reporting. 

The figures are rather bet- 
ter than they appear to be at 
firs sight They include a 
charge of £27 million for a 
currency loss on dollar de- 
. nominated debt relating to 
BTV satellites. If this is 
excluded, the pretax profit 
rise is a much more creditable 
23 per cent-. 

The recreating profits 
come, from ^ three ..main 
sources. Telephone calls in- 
creased by I0 : per cent for 
international calls and 6 per 
cent for inland calls in the 
quarter. Cost cutting contin- 
ues to be a feature and staff 
.cuts in Britain were 2,000 in 
the quarter. Staff cuts arising 
from natural wastage are 
running at an annual rate of 

5.000, or 2 per cent of the 
labour force, and this rale of 
decline is expected to contin- 
ue. The quarter also, gained 
from the November 1 price 
increases..' 

The market demiy expect- 
ed the rise in inland calls to 
begreater — possibly doser to 

8.. per cent, the increase 
reported in the first quarter. 
The company insists that the 
lmw-ttein-expeeied.Tise was., 
due to an abnormally high 
level of. calls in the corre- 
sponding quarter of last year 

A steady rate of growth of 
call traffic lodes likely aS the . 
younger generation is very 
telephone conscious, as par- 
ents wifi know to their cost. 
With cost .cutting and price 
increases to work through to 
profits;: the outlook for the 
next two years looks positive. 

ST is no longer a monopo- 


ly. however. On May 1, 
Mercury will be offering a 
switched telephone service in 
competition with BT. 

Expanding into new areas 
of business such as the manu- 
facture of PBX machines (via 
Mitel) and electronic mail in 
the US (via the proposed 
.acquisition of the ITT subsid- 
iary Dial com) is a key plank 
in BTTs strategy to meet the 
challenge of 

compeiiiion.NevertheIess, 
some margin erosion looks 
inevitable 

Rowntree 

Mackintosh 

The British sweet tooth 
helped boost Rowntree 
Mackintosh’s sales of KitfCat 
in Britain, to a record 5 
' million eaten each day and 
its 1985 pretax profits to 
£793 million, a rise of 6.4 per 
cent. 

Performance - across the 
groupwasuneven, with British 
- trading profits up by 16.5 per 
cent 'and North American 
profits up by 18 per cent. Bui 
European profits were down 
by 27.7 per cent and the rest 
of the world lower by 22.5 per 
cent 

The European problems of 
lack of critical mass are not 
new and are unlikely to be 
overcome quickly. There 
was, . however, some im- 
provement in the second half. 
The export market was also 
hurt by declining spending 
power in the oil producing 
countries. The Middle East 
takes some 60 per cent of 
Rown tree’s exports. 

Britain performed well, de- 
spite a marginal loss of 
market share in the confec- 
tionery division, and the 
United States specialty retail 
food shops rose above fierce- 
ly compeitive conditions 
leaving the worst excesses of 
the cookie war to the leading 
packaged biscuit makers. 

Steady progess is expected 
to continue this year. Next 
month sees the launch of 
Novo, Rowmree's new choc- 
olate .and meusli-style bar. 

Other, developments 
could include a sizeable 
American acquisition and, 
more speculatively, the pur- 
chase of Golden Wonder 

Pretax profits for the cur- 
rent year are expected in the 
£85 million to £87 million 
range, a respectable 7 to 10 
per cent; increase. The shares, 
which rose Up to 456p . 
yesterday, have benefited of 
late from the speculative 
fellout from the United 
Biscuits/Imperial bid. They 
have risen 60p since the start 
of ‘the year. They should 
continue to perform at least 
as well.as the market

STOCK MARKET REPORT 


Shares hold steady despite 
houts of profit-taking 


Dealers concentrated on a 
welter of trading statements 
yesterday as traders consoli- 
dated recent gains. The under- 
tone held firm throughout 
despite sporadic bouts of prof- 
it-taking amid fears that the 
raging bull market was near its 
peak. 

Government securities 
made a drab showing in late 
trading after the Chancellor 
appeared to dampen lower 
interest rate optimism in a 

Commons statement. 

Quotations recorded fells of 
nearly of a point. Among 
equities, satisfactory results 
from Jaguar and Shell provid- 
ed fresh food for the optimists, 
but a 16 per cent increase in 
profits from the “people's 
share" British Telecom failed 
to match best estimates and 
the shares retreated 14p to 
218p. 

In contrast. Jaguar shares 
were very volatile moving 
between extremes of 430p and 
485p before settling at 470p. a 
net gain of 1 5p following the 
33’per cent profits expansion. 

Shed figures proved in line 
with most analysts’ expecta- 
tions, the shares closing at 
758p up 13p- But the news 
foiled to stem profit-taking in 
other oils where BP gave back 
lOp to 560p. Ultramar at I98p 
down Sp remained depressed 
by Wednesday's 44 per cent 
setback 

In pharmaceuticals, 
Wellcome Foundation, the re- 
cent newcomer, expected an 


encouraging statement con- 
cerning tests on the anti-aids 
drug. The shares advanced to 
a peak of 2 1 5p before finishing 
at 206p. up I2p. 

Boots attracted late demand 
helped by heavy activity in 
traded options. The shares 
recorded an I Ip rise to 265p 
having been little changed for 
most of the session. Other 
stores were much quieter than 
of late with Wool worth at 
579p. losing 1 Op of its recent 
speculative advance. 

Banks relumed to favour as 
two influential brokers, 
Merrill Lynch and Wood 
Mackenzie, upgraded their 
forecasts for the sector. 
NatWest led the field at 784p 
up 42p while Lloyds finished 
30p higher at 570p. 

On the bid from. Granada 
W plunged 28p as Rank 
Organisation lost its applica- 
tion fora judicial review of the 
IBA declaration that a take- 
over of the company would be 
unacceptable. However, the 
shares later rallied to 272p, 
down 8p as Rank (down 5p to 
532p) pledged to appeal and 
press ahead with the bid. 

Television shares elsewhere 
were stimulated by good prof- 
its from Tyne Tees, up 12p to 
IS5p. LWT Holdings report- 
ing next Thursday rose I5p to 
3 1 Sp. 

In mixed engineers. Guest 
Keen unchanged at 347p re- 
covered an early 9p fell on 
profit- taking. 

Automotive Products with 


results next Tuesday gained 
7p to 222p while Appleyard 
celebrated a 68 percent expan- 
sion with a !3p rise to 136p. 
British Aerospace, at 566 p. 
and Lucas. 636[>. were recent 
high- fiiers to give back 15p 
and 7p respectively. 

Beiier-ihan-expected profits 
boosted Bridport Gundrv 7p 
io I83p. J Mowlem shares 
were supported at 41 Sp up 8p 
in otherwise dull builders. 
Costain added 4p to 544p, still 
on the Australian results, and 
Marlev also resisted the trend 
at !22p. up 3p. on persistent 
bid talk. Williams Holdings 
hardened 3p to 598p as they 
placed their stake in 
McKechnie Group at l95p a 
share. 

Trust House Forte jumped 
Sp io J83p on reports that a 
substantial stake had changed 
hands and that a bid may be 
made by American Express. 

Wordplex plummeted 40p 
to 48p when the company 
warned of heavy losses due to 
trading difficulties. CASE, in 
a similar business, lost 20p to 
94p in sympathy but among 
other high-technology issues 
Micro Focus shares were an 
outstanding spot at !95p. up 
35p. Amstrad at 436p, up 2p. 
recovered an early fell on news 
of a new video recorder. 

Allied-Lyons eased 3p to 
305p on further reaction to the 
Elders stake sale. Provisions 
against tin trading losses 
snipped a penny from S & W 
Berisford at l97p. The share 


price was supported by the 
takeover situation. However.' 
Dalgety tumbled I7p u> 248p> 
after similar action. 

Northern Foods dipped 12p 
to 260p after a profit 
downgrading by the stockbro- 
ker Scrimgeour. In contrast 
Rowntree shares were hoisted 
lip to 456p after a better- 
ihan-expected 6,4 per cent 
profits increase. 

Good results also stimulat- 
ed W J Tod at 133p. William 
Collins ’A* 323p, Hawlai 
W hiting 450p and World of 
Leather 20 3 p. all up between 
lOp and ISp. Newcomer 
Menvier-Swain at 139p made 
a bright debut with a 19p 
premium. Pacific Sales at 79p 
up I6p and Eucalyptus Pulp 
470p up 45p were supported 
ahead of results 

Dry cleaners returned to 
favour with Johnson Group 
9p better at 420p. Expansion 
plans boosted Microgen at 
3o5p. up lOp, and Raybeck 
hardened 1 ‘6p to 45‘Ap on the 
management buyout plans. > 

Life insurances remained 
on offer on marketing worries 
but composites were brighter 
with Guardian Royal up 7 jj to 
833p. In brokers, disappoint- 
ing profits knocked 22p from 
Sedgwick at 396p but mer- 
chant banks were firm again 
with Kleinwort at 800p up I Op 
still reflecting recent good 
results. 

In mixed properties fading 
bid hopes left MEPC another 
8p down at 350p

The ‘priority’ for jobs 


Jobs for the long-term un- 
employed could be created at 
a cost of only £4.000 a year, 
according to Professor Rich- 
ard La yard, head of the Centre 
for Labour Economics at the 
London School of Economics. 

In the second 1986 Stockton 
lecture, delivered yesterday 
evening at the London Busi- 
ness School. Professor La yard 
said that reducing long-term 


unemployment should be the 
Government’s “number one 
priority'*. 

Professor La yard said that 
the Government should intro- 
duce a new financial incentive 
to companies to do more 
training. He said that ihe“tax 
on jobs" - employers' Nation- 
al Insurance contributions - 
should be cut for low-paid 
workers.

BUDGET- BRIEFING 


Law Report March 14 1986 


Beat ‘why work?’ syndrome 
with reduced tax rate band 


The most contentions part 
of the Budget next Tues- 
day is likely to involve 
income tax, mainly be- 
cause the Treasury will 
publish its long-term 
plans for tax reform. 
There are. however, some 
hard short-term decisions 
to be taken on income tax 
as David Smith. Econom- 
ics Correspondent, ex- 
plains. 

The Chancellor's immedi- 
ate decisions on income tax 
next Tuesday risk becoming 
submerged in the wider issue 
of longer-term reform, with 
the options to be outlined in a 
Budget day green paper.

the future, which have a habit 
of falling b> the wayside. Mr 
Lawson is under pressure to 
do something on income ulx 
now. 

. Although neither has come 
out and said it publicly, it is 
reasonable to take the view 
that until the winter collapse 
in oil prices both the Chancel-

out all the stops to reduce the 
basic rate then rests on the 
longer-term plans. If the

Since then, of course, the

market and. despite signs that 
prices have bottomed out. the 


.This leaves two main op- 
tions in what is essentially a 
revenue reshuffling Budget 
The first is to continue with 
the programme, pursued on 


Chancellor finds himself and off since the 1980 Budget, 
about £6 billion short on oil of reducing income tax by 


revenues in 1986/87. 

He could still squeeze out a 
cut in the basic rate by 
bumping up excise duties 
substantially and forswearing 
other Budget measures. But. 
with the case for basic rate 
cuts still far from proven 
among the “real economy" 
wing of the Cabinet notably 
the Secretary of State for 


increasing allowances and 
thresholds by more than the 
rate of inflation. 

The second is to revert to an 
old idea, a reduced rate band 
of income tax for the lower 
paid. A reduced rate, of 25 
pence in the pound, used to 



more expensive that shift will 
be. The second is that the

Rank challenge to 
IBA ban fads 


Lord Young: sceptical a boot bask rate tax 

transferrable allowances, the break directed specifically at : 


the unemployed. 

The trick now. particularly 
to avoid allegations of a Il- 
ium because of its earlier 
abolition, is to present it as the 
first stage in the introduction 
ofa 25 percent rate to all basic 
rate taxpayers. 

Introducing the reduced 
rate on the first £500 of 
taxable income costs about 
£600 million in a frill year. A 
£ 1 .000 reduced rate band costs 
about the same as a 1 penec in 
the pound cut in the basic rate. 

The final possibility is that 
the Chancellor will do nothing 
more than just raise allow- 
ances and thresholds in line 
with inflation. After alt with 
real incomes growing at 3 to 4 
per cent this year, it is rather 


need, for income tax redac- 
tions. . 


Regina v Independent Broad- 
casting Authority, Ex p arte 
Rank Organization ptc 
Before Justice Mann 
{Judgment given March 13J 

The Independent Broadcast- 
ing Authority, in deciding not to 
give permission to the Rank 
Organization pic to exercise 
voting rights in respect of shares 
constituting in excess of 5 per 
ccm of the issued voting shares 
of Granada Group pfe vas not. 
exercising any function under 
section 20(3) of the Broadcast- 
ing Ad (98{ but was exercising a 
power conferred by article 75 of 
the articles of association of 
Granada Group pie. Die de- 
cision was therefore not suscep- 
tible of judicial review. 

Mr Justice Mann so held, in a 
reserved judgment, dismissing 
an application by the Rank 
Organization pic for judicial 
review of the above decision of 
February 25 of the Independent 
Broadcasting Authority. 

Section 20(5) of the 
Broadcasting Act 1981 provides: 
“Every contract concluded be- 
tween the Authority and a 
programme contractor shall, 
where the programme con- 
tractor is a body corporate, 
contain all such provisions as 
the Authority think necessary or 
expedient to ensure that if any 
change affecting the nature or 
characteristics of ihe body cor- 
porate. or any change in the 
persons having control over or 
interests in the body corporate, 
takes place after the conclusion 
of the contract, which, if it had 
occurred before the conclusion 
of the contract, would have 
induced the Authority to refrain 
from entering into the contract, 
the Authority may by notice in 
writing to the programme con- 
tractor. taking effect forthwith 
or on a date specified in the 
notice, determine the contract.” 

Article 75A(l)of the articles of 
association provides: “No mem- 
ber shall be entitled to vote m 
respect of shares in excess of the 
number equal to 5 per cent of 
the total number of voting 
shares then m issue unless he is 


an approved person and then 
onjv in accordance with u» 
terms of the Authority's permis- 
sion...” 

Mr Ian Hunter. QC and Miss 
Mary Arden for the .applicant 
Mr' Robert Alexander. QC. Mr 
Roger Buckley. OC and Mr 
Mark Howard for Granada; Mr 
David Kemp. QC and " Mr 
Derrick Turriff for the JBA- 

MR JUSTICE MANN , said 
that central to the applicant's 
submission nf illegality was-lbe 
allegation that tor IBA had 
foiled to give consideration to 
section 20(5).. . . .. 

If the IBA was exerctsmg its 
function under the statute then 
the exercise would’ be 
renewable under public taw. Za 
his Lordship's judgment, on 
February 25 the IBA was not 
exercising any powers under 
section 20(5). It was orenwng 
power conferred by article 75 of 
the articles of association. 

There was no suggestion that 
article 75 was ultra vires of 
Granada or exceeded the powers 
of the IBA. 

Was the article of association 
susceptible of judicial review mi 
the application of shareholders? 
The answer must be “no”. . 

No authorities bad been re- 
ferred to nor was there any 
argument why Order 53. of the 
Rules of the Supreme Court 
should avail. In those cin.no*- 
sunces the remedies of public 
law were not available. . 

Had the matter been jus- 
ticiable. Rank would have bad a 
sufficient interest to give iiioeas 
standi, but -the decision could 
not have been flawed on the 
ground of mechanical applica- 
tion of policy. The IBA was 
entitled to have a policy. 

Rank did not have a legiti- 
mate expectation to be beard, 
nor was there any unfairness m 
not granting Rank the opportu- 
nity to put its case. There was 
onlv a duty to act honestly and 
to listen to the representations 
which were made in good frith.

Regina v Bolton Justices, Ex 
parte Graeme 

Before Sir John Donaldson. 
Master of the Rolls. Lord Justice 
Neill and Lord Justice Ralph 
Gibson 

[Judgment given March 31 

The Court of Appeal did not 
have jurisdiction to consider a 
renewed application for leave to 
apply for judicial review of the 
issue by justices of a summons 
for breach of the peace under 
section IIS of the Magistrates* 
Courts Act 198a because sec- 
tion 18(1X4 of the Supreme 
Court Act 1981 deprived the 
court of jurisdiction to hear 
appeals in “any criminal cause 
or matter'*. 

That was the opinion ex- 
pressed by Sir John Donaldson, 
Master of the Rolls, after the 
court had dismissed, by reason 
of the non-appearance of the 
applicant, Seamus Jamie 
Graeme, a r e n e w e d application 
for leave to apply for judicial 
review against Bolton Justices, 
leave having been refused by the 
Queen's Bench Divisional 
Court on July 23, 1985. 

Mr John Laws as amicus 
curiae. 

THE MASTER OF THE 
ROLLS said that the applicant 
freed two obstacles. 

First, section l8(lXa), al- 
though concerned with the 
court's appellate jurisdiction, 
might stifi be applied by analogy 
to its original jurisdiction, 
which included the bearing of 
renewed applications for leave 
to apply for judidal.review such 
as the present one. 

It would be very peculiar if 
the Court of Appeal were to 
exercise its orional jurisdiction 
to grant leave for judicial review 
ut circumstances in which any 
consequent decision would be 
unappealable to the court. 

Second, an application- for 
judicial review relating to a 


complaint under section 115 of 
the Magistrates' Courts Act 1980 
was a “criminal ■ came or 
matter** within the meaning of 
section !8 of the:1981 Act. 

Obviously it remained open 
to someone to argue the point in 
the future. Bmit might help if in 
the light of the present case Iris 
Lordship observed that he had 
very iittle doubt but that this 
was a criminal cause or matter. 

A number of reasons had been 
evolved by Mr Laws, bat it was 
eaough n? mention just three.' * 

1 The wonting of section.) ISof 
foe 1980 Act includ e d, in su b- 
section (3), an express power of 
imprisonment if someone was 
not prepared to enter in to a 
recognisance to keep the peace. 
There was no suggestion that . 
that was a contempt j uri sdiction 
of anythmg.of that sort. 

2 Section -115 was very similar 
to the provisions of the ancient 
statute of Edward I1L the Jusr 
tices of the Peace Act 1361. from 
which it was quite dear that the 
jurisdiction to bind over was 
'integral to justices’ general duty 
lo ensure the maintenance of 
peace, which was normally 
thought of as a criminal jurisdic- 
tion- " 

3 Section 1(7) of the Justices of 
the Peace Act 1968 declared that 
any court of record having a 
criminal jurisdiction bad an 
ancillary power to bind over to 
keep the peace.

. McMonagle ([I970J AC' 166. 
176) and Fraser y B S Furman 
(Productions) Lid (11967] 1 
WLR 898. 904) that tne comm 
approach was for the judge to 
assesstbe dunce that the insur- 
ers would have taken the height 
point. 

Having done so and con- 
eluded tiiar it was unthinkable 
that they would have taken it, he 
had assessed the chance a# nil. 
and there was no basis cm which 
the Coon of Appeal could 
interfere with that finding. 

LORD JUSTICE 

BALCOMBE. concurring, said 
■ xhm he shared the deep concern 
which the trial judge had ex- 
pressed at the repudiation of 
employers* liability insur- 
ance policy, which appeared to 
drive Ax coach arid horses 
through- rife provisions for com- 
pulsory insurance in the 
Employers’ Liability (Com- 
pulsory insurance) Act 1969 and 
the Employers’ Liability (Com- 
pulsory Insurance) General 
Regulations (SI t97! No 1117) 
which required the certificate of 
insurance to be displayed by the 
insured so that employees could 
inspect it. 

In this case such a certificate 
had been issued and displayed; 
it had appeared to protect the 
employees, and it was difficult 
to see how the plaintiff or any of 
his workmates could ever have 
found out that h was worthless. 

They had been entitled to 
assume that they were covered, 
and in the circumstances the 
certificate had been a snare and 
a delusion. 

‘ Moreover, there had been no 
reference in the certificate, 
which bad purported to satisfy 
the requirements of the law, to 
the height restriction, that per- 
sons working above 40 feet were 
not covered. 

The case bad drawn attention 
to an unsatisfactory stale of 
affaire, which was a matter for 
the legislature to deal with.

Potential purchaser of house not 
licensee but a tenant 


Bretherton v Patou 
Before Lord Justice May and Sir 
George Waller 

[Judgment given February 25] 
Where a person had been 
granted exclusive possession of 
premises for a term at a rent, he 
was a tenant and no! merely a 
licensee, even though he had 
entered possession with the 
intention of purchasing foe 
premises and neither be nor .foe 
freehold owner had intended 
that a tenancy should be created. 

The Court of Appeal so held, 
allowing an appeal by the defen- 
dant Miss Karen Lorraine Pa- 
ton. from a decision of Preston 
County Court (Mr Assistant 
Recorder Hpgarty) which on 
July 9. 1985 had granted foe 

S laintiff. Mr William 
retherton, possession of a 
dwelling house in which the 
defendant had been living, to- 
gether with mesne profits, on 
foe basis that she was a mere 
licensee and not entitled to the 
protection of the Rent Act J977. 

Mr Jeremy Nicholson for the 
defendant; Mr Mark Blacken- 
Ord for foe plaintiff 

LORD JUSTICE MAY said 
said that the defendant had 
approached the plaintiff with a- 
view to becoming tenant of the 
premises. 

The plaintiff had declined to 
lei them, but said that he would 
be willing to sell them to her. on 
the basis that the defendant 
would live there forthwith and 
put them into good condition so 
that she could raise a mortgage 
to buy them. 

She had entered into exclu- 
sive possession of the property 
On that basis, paying foe defen- 
dant £1.20 a week in respect of 
insurance on foe property and 
the plaintiff's expenses in paying 
foe premiums. 

There had been no written 
agreement, and the parties had 


subsequently foiled to agree a 
sale price. 

The defendant had been, 
happy to remain in occupation, 
but foe defendant bad served a 
notice to quit; when sbe had 
failed to leave, foe plaintiff had 
brought this action for pos- 
session. . 

If the defendant bad been a 
tenant she was now a statutory . 
tenant entitled to . remain in 
possession undo 1 the 1977 Act 

The judge had considered 
Street V Mauntford (11985) AC. 
809) at length aid found that 

there was a legal relationship 
between foe parties and that the ' 
three indicia of tenancy (exclu- 
sive possession for a lemTaf a 
Tent) were present, but had held 
that since the defendant had 
entered possession under an 
arrangement for sale and pur- 
chase of the prop ert y and not 
originally as a tenant, foe esse . 
fell whhin one of the categories 
of exception to the principle 
enunciated in Street thar where 
foe three indicia were p re s eu t ' 
there was a tenancy and not a 

licence. i 

His Lordship had tittle doubt 
that- there was some legally 
enforceable relationship be- 
tween the parties. 

The defendant had argued - 
that on the basis of tire judge's 
findings of fret, and since they 
had never , agreed any of the 
necessary terms of sale; let alone 
an enforceable contract of sate; ' 
their relationship was . font of 
landlord and tenant within 
Street, and there was no basis for 
saying that any exception from ' 
Street applied. 

The plaintiff bad said , that 
there had been no intention on 
foe part of either party, to create 
a tenancy; their mutual in ten-, 
lion had been that the defendant 
would purchase the property - 
and jn those circumstances. 
Street was irrelevant- - 


It mattered not. he had ar- 
gued, that there was no enforce- 
able contract of sate and 
purchase since' the whole fla- 
vour and colour of foe arrange- 
ment had been that of sale and 
purchase, not of tenancy: it 
would be illogical and unjust to 
find that a tenancy had been 
created in the circumstances. 

Alternatively, be had submri- 
ted. the defendant had entered 
occupation and paid rent pursu- 
ant roan enforceable agreement, 
the. terms of which barred foe 
application of the Street prin- 
-ciple. . — . 

His Lordship had no doubt at 
aU that, although foe sale and 
purchase' of foe pranises had 
bees intended, the defendant 
• had, pursuant to a'cohtracr with 
the plaintiff' ’eniercd'exchisive 
possession o£tite£resr»es for 
which she paid a weekly rent 
Thai iactual siiaaaofl deadly fell 

within the rule' m Street, and 
there - was therefore a_ tenancy 
which was just Whin the 1977 

ACL ' 

The cases referred to by Loiti 
Tern pieman where exclusive 
possession was referable to a 
legal relationship other -than 
tenancy should not Ik regarded 
as exceptions to tbc Street 
principle. - V 

That case had not made any 
new law or iequued any new 
.principle to be applied: had 
merely decided that where the 
three, indicia existed 'and were 
not referable, to a legal relation- 
ship other than tenancy, tiere 
was a tenancy. ,

some other legalfdanonshtp. or

. On Monday of this week Ladbroke 
announced their preliminary results for 
the year ending December 31st, 1985. 

•. Pre-tax profits were up 50% to a 
record level of £75m. 

. Turnover was up from £l*12bn to 
j£l*34bn and earnings per share increased 
by. 18%. 

• . It was an encouraging year (to put it 
mildly) with all three core businesses 
p^oimingwelL 

Hotels, property and racing 
achieved a combined increase in pre-tax 
profit of 42% while the entertainments 
division boosted its profit contribution 
by 35%. 

Last year was certainly a high point 
in Ladbroke’s history and the future has 
never looked more exciting. 

Ladbroke Hotels are now one of the 
top. two hotel chains in Britain and 
growing fast. 

• ; We've recently opened new hotels 

at Swansea, Livingstone and Basingstoke 
and we’re currently building at 
Manchester Airport and Portsmouth. 

R In London we’re relaunching the 
m Gurzon in Mayfair and the Sherlock 
9. Holmes in Baker Street (where else?). 

•tP Because our hotel business caters 


f£" 2 primarily for foe businessman who With leisure-time spending 

:■ has to travel we’re less dependent on projected to increaseby 8*5%inl986, foe 

tourism than many hotel groups. entertainments division is also expecting 

i Manchester may be a less exotic to do well; publishing is expanding, 
location than Rio but it appears holiday bookings are ahead of 1985 levels 

f more often on an executive’s itinerary, and Laskys is again expected to 


ingyear in 1985 and with over 1,500 shops 
in foe U.K. we increased our share of foe 
off-track betting market to over 21%. 

In Belgium we own over 800 betting 
shops and last year we bought a race 
course in Michigan. 

(When legislation allows off-track 
betting, we’ll be ready for foe off.) 

But foe most pleasing development 
happened here in Britain earlier this week. 

For foe first time, betting shops were 
allowed to show live TV and satellite 
coverage of sporting events and to 
provide new facilities for their customers. 

We have already invested in foe 
most modem communication and 
computer technology to give our clients 
a service that’s second to none. 

We call it foe ‘Greatest Show in 
Town’ and even allowing for a Me 
commercial hyperbole, it does seem to 
be very popular 

Our U.S A properties are 
establishing a substantial rental stream 
and valuable dollar assets. 

Her£ in Britain, we’re concentrating 
on foe retail sector with major new 
schemes in Maidstone, Birmingham, 
and Bristol and out of town 
developments in Crayford, Hendon, 
Perry Barr and Cwmbran. 




This is Manhattan Tbzi'cr.

Its high rise and high rent and typical of 
our quality projects in America.

to group profits. 






By next winter we’ll have invested

bought from foe Comfort Group up to 
' ; Ladbroke standards. (And need we say 

ii, Ladbroke profitability.) 

Ourradng division had an outstand-

As you can see from this brief look 
at our activities, foe future looks far from 
leisurely.

Mr Headset heads for success 


- By Teresa Poole 

* li was ai a trade exhibition in 1983 
that ihe Tewkesbury-based electronics 
company. Vanek. heart! rhai National 

■ Express was looking for a cordless 
’ headset system for its coaches. Someone 

* mentioned it to one of Vanek's sales 
■reps, who passed the word to Vanek’s 
founder, Arthur Combe. 

Two years and £80.000 in research 
and development costs later, Mr Combe 
and two engineers had perfected a 
.system which was ready for production. 
The Tewkesbury-based company, 
which was set up in 1981. has now been 
. contracted to fit out alt 175 of National 
Express’s Rapide service coaches, which 
should push the company’s turnover to 
£ 1.25 million. 

; Mr Combe said; “IVe have been 
lucky. We found one product that has 

■ done’ extremely well for us.” 

Vanek Is now becoming a textbook 
_ 'example of how a small company can 
capture a new market through the 

- development of a specialized high- 
technology product and secure the 

* necessary " financial support to move 
imo production. 

'* In 1976. Mr Combe left the

Changes to the loan guarantee scheme 
„ to breathe new life into it as a generator 
- of small businesses and new jobs are 
L expected to be announced by the 
■ - .Chancellor in next week's Budget. 


A new buzz 
for the BES 


• t The main change is likely to be in the 
.-premiums being paid by borrowers for 

• the guarantee, which now applies to 70 
-jjer cent of a bank loan. This rate, 
’ originally three per cent, rose to fire 
. - per cent in mid-1984 at ihe same time as 
: the banks’ exposure to risk was raised 
- from 20 per cent to the present 30 per 
; cent. The demand for loans under the 

• scheme has since fallen away, raising 

• doubts abont the future of the scheme, 
’i. ’ But there has been continued support 


for it from David Trip pier; minister for 
small business at the Department of 
Employment, and it could well have a 
friend at the Treasury — John 
MacGregor, the Chief Secretary, a 
former small business minister. 

One advantage of the LGS, especially 
if it can be switched again into a higher 
gear, is that it has produced new- jobs 
comparatively cheaply. 

It seems unlikely that the banks will 
be faced with accepting additional 
exposure to risk. Their commitment to a

Development Unit will help find premises

■ York Enterprise Centre, being 
1 opened in the city’s Davygate this week-

. nesses and their needs. It is an un- 
usual blend of private and public-sector 
; Hnterests with a strong commitment to 
. fretping with loans, guarantees and eq- 
uity funding. 

The centre, first mooted by the city 
. council, then backed by the Lord Mayor's 
economic liaison committee that itself 
.brings together many local interests, will

for small businesses but also a con-

hear its soundtrack. Existing cordless 
headphones were not really suitable for 
in-coach use and cord systems were 
thought loo unreliable. By July 1984, 
Vanek was fitting a trial coach and at 
the end of that year had developed the 
pre-production prototype. 

Each coach costs about £3.000 to fit 
out (at retail prices) and some indepen- 
dent operators have now also shown 
interest. Winning such a large order last 
year meant that the company's working- 
capital demands increased sharply and a 
decision was made to seek venture 
capital. With the help of accountants 
-Coopers & Lvbrand, Vartek went to 
Investors in Industry’ and Guardian 
Royal Exchange and raised £250.000, 
diluting Combe's stake in the company 
to 45 percent. 

The National Express coach finings 
are due to be completed in April and 
Vanek is now facing a drop in sales 
without further large orders. But ferries 
and British RaD have shown interest. 

In five years' time, the 'company 
hopes to have a £5 million turnover and 
to be ready for a flotation on the 
unlisted securities market. On the 
original side of the business, it holds 
about seven per cent of the market for 
coin-operated amusement machines 
and it has now also developed an inter- 
- active video-disc catalogue for car 
showrooms.

new phase of LGS is crucial because it 
will primarily be bank managers, who 
will be selling the idea of such loans to 
prospective small businesses. 


What the banks particularly will also 
be looking for is a government commit- 
ment to the LGS over a reasonable

minimum specification. 

The Chancellor is widely expected to 
tighten up regulations for the Busmess 
Expansion Scheme. But there has also 
been some study in Whitehall on the 
possibilities of improving the BES to 
benefit particularly small businesses 
needing backing of £50,000 or less.

UNIVERSITY 
OF BRADFORD/1 



By L»cy Hodges 

Education Correspondent 


The comeback after the cuts 


As a new technological univer- 
sity, Bradford's aim has been 
to provide courses and conduct 
research which is relevant to a 
modern society. It has pioneer- 
ed a number of subjects, such 
as peace studies, and it has 
recently built on its traditional 
strength in engineering. 

Other areas in which it has 
a deserved reputation axe man- 
agement studies and lan- 
guages. 

The university was hit very 
hard in the University Grants 
Committee cuts of 1981. On 
paper it suffered a cut of about 
28 per cent; in real terms the 
cut was more tike 31 per cent. 

It therefore lost about £5 
million in cash overnight and 
was forced to shed one-fifth of 
its students. This was a terri- 
ble blow and the university is 
now a smaller and more sober 
institution. 

Professor John West, the 
vice chancellor, decided not to 
adopt a policy of “equal Academics 
misery" for all but to apply the 


cut with ruthless selectivity. 

u We looked at what we were 
good at and derided not ro 
touch those departments,” he 
said. “We found a number of 
departments were not in a 
good position and would re- 
quire money to put right, so we 
decided to phase them out” 

Bradford lost 10 degree 
courses and its student num- 
bers declined from 5.000 to 
4,000. Biology, material sci- 
ence, colour chemistry', tex- 
tiles, science and society, 
education, social analysis, the 
literature and history of ideas, 
public and social policy, and 
pharmacology and medical 
science were all cut 

A total of 120 teaching and 
300 non-teaching staff had to 
go. According to Professor 
West, the response was 
"magnificent", and sufficient 
staff elected to go under the 
voluntary retirement scheme. 


such as electrical and 


in priority are 
rical and electro, 


The installation today of 
the ICI chairman. Sir 
John Harvey-Jones, 
right, as the University 
of Bradford's new 
Chancellor,succeeding 
the former Prime Min- 
ister, Lord Wilson of 
Rievauix, strengthens its 
links with industry 

k engineering were not al- 
lowed to leave. 

Professor West said the 
positive aspect of the cots was 
that the university received 
extra encouragement from the 
UGC and was given 50 extra 
engineering places. Since then 
It has received funding for 
another 50 places . in 
ekctxical/eiectronic engineer- 
ing as part of the 
Government's "switch' 1 money 
to enable more students to 
study science subjects. 

He said that Bradford was 
str o ng er now than it had been 
five years ago, but there was 



no magic in the fonnnla- 
"We are smaller now," he 

said. "You pay for what you 
get. The 24 departments that 
hare remained are stronger 
now, but we have lost biology 
which I regret very 

Material science Is a big loss. 
This is a minority subject, but 
a very important subject in 
science and engineering." 

The biggest factor which 
told against Bradford ffl 19S1 


was that a nnmba of its 
subjects were not in demand 
by students. This meant that 
A-level results- were not good 
In many subjects. 

in recent months the univer- 
sity has taken another tough 
decision; it has derided _ to do 
away with physics, againbe-

nnlvmity had difficulty filling 
Its complement of 30 places 
and had to rely heavily on the 
UCCA clearing house scheme 
to recruit students. 

Of the 10 physks stag 
three are moving to 
University and the remainder 
are being redeployed at Brad- 
ford. By 1988 the physics 
department will hare disap- 
peared from the university. 

Of the4,000 students, about 
one-third are studying arts

A special case 
for engineers 


In the past five years Bradford 
has concentrated on its engi- 
neering as it was told to do by 
the University Grants Com- 
mittee. Impressive work is 
going on in chemical, control 
and electrical engineering, and 
five new professors have been 
appointed. 

Chemical engineering is one 
of the biggest schools in terms 
of student numbers with 280 
undergraduates and 50 re- 
search students. A special 
feature is the “think 
sandwich" element which in- 
cludes a period spent in 
France. West Germany, Hol- 
land or Swj| 2 erland. 

A student of chemical engi- 
neering will spend his or her 
first year in the university and 
in the subsequent three years 
will spend six months in 
industry and six months in the 
university. 

In general, students go 
abroad in the second industri- 
al training period during the

Listeriulls Science Park, Bradford University. 


If your company or business 
operates at the frontiers of new 
technology', you need a working 
environment as specialised as 
your business. 

English Estates leads the field 
in the development and provision 
of purpose-built high technology 
property. We have established a 
highly successful science park at 
Bradford University. 


There are only three units of 
1280 sqit remaining and all are 
available with flexible leasing 
terms, attractive rents, and a 
complete property management

third year of the course. They 
study a language — French or 
German — in their first year at 
Bradford though this does not 
count towards their degree. 

The school has run this 
industrial experience abroad 
for the past 10 years and Dr 
Michael Hughes says it broad- 
ens the students as people and 
enables ihem to become feirly 
fluent in a language- It has led 
to some students getting jobs 
in the EEC. 

The course is oriented to- 
wards the design of chemical 
plant and it takes 25 per cent 
women students, a higher 
proportion than any other 
such course in Britain. Fifteen 
years ago. before the depart- 
ment began to go out of its 
way to attract girls, it would 
have been lucky to have one in 
25. said Dr Hughes. 

One reason for the influx of 
girls may be that the school 
will accept an O-JeveJ in 
chemistry as an entry require- 
ment. In research, the depart- 
ment specializes in three 
major areas: solvent extrac- 
tion in which it has strong 
links with British Nuclear 
Fuels and Harwell; rheology, 
concerned with the manufac- 
ture of plastics, and food 
processing and the mixing of 
chemicals: and powders where 
research concentrates on slur- 
ries. 

The electrical engineering 
department has expanded 
considerably in the past two 
years to become the largest 
engineering department in the

university. Because of the 
extra money it was given in 
the Government’s "switch" to 
science and technology sub- 
jects it has acquired more 
students, more staff and more 
capital equipment 

It received £180.000 . for 
equipment in the postgraduate 
area and £100,000 for under- 
graduate work. This was mote 
than any other electrical engi- 
neering department m Britain. 

The undergraduate school 
expanded by 40 per cent and 
the postgraduate school began 
a new Master’s course in radio 
frequency engineering. Tele- 
communications research in- 
terests have been expanded in 
the past six months, particu- 
larly communications with 
vehicles, satellites and cellular 
terrestrial systems. The de- 
partment has been awarded 
the highest number of con- 
tracts bv the Science and' 


Engineering Research Council 
of any other university electri- 
cal engineering department in 
the telecommunications speci- 
ality. 

The emphasis in the school 
is towards electronic and tele- 
communications engineering 
rather thafr machine prob- 
lems. The two undergraduate 
courses are electrical and elec- 
tronic engineering or electron- 
ic, communications and 
computer engineering. Within 
those two courses students can 
gain a Masters or a BEng 
degree. 

There are five postgraduate 
courses — microprocessor ext

gineering. power electronics, 
communications engineering 


and power systems engineer-

UNIVERSITY 
OF BRADFORD/2 


Putting a spot- weld 
on tbe bum scars 


"fc 


S? 6 ^SSSJjfefrcj? ai S? “J advanced stage and the uni- 

veiiity is abwit to market a 

pteticsu^ndw^h 

which is being established as a 

result of last year’s disastrous 
fire at Valley Parade football 
ground in Bradford. 

- £250,000 has been donated 
and industrial links have been 
set up. The unit is a joint 
endeavour between the uni- 
versity and St Luke's Hospi- 
tal, and its director is Mr 
David Sharpe, principal con- 
sultant at the hospital who led 
the team of surgeons trading 
the bum victims. 

Tbe link between the uni- 
versity and the hospital began 
in 1980 when Professor Terry 
Baker arrived at Bradford. 

The two institutions carried 
out joint research on facial 
plastic surgery and breast 
reconstruction for women fol- 
lowing mastectomies. 

In those days — before the 
wearing of seatbelts became 
statutory — there were a lot of 
patients with face injuries 
mused by traversing car wind- 
screens. 

The method developed by 
Mr Sharpe and his team is the 
"tissue flap” technique, 
whereby a flap of skin can be 
transplanted. That has been 
accompanied by research into 
glues that are used as surgical 
adhesives. 

The work is being done with 
a subsidiary of Super Glue 
call ed Loctite. It is at a very 

The Usterhills science park at 
Bradford has been called “the 
best in the country after 
Cambridge”. It was started in 
1982, with the first tenants 
moving, in in 1983, and has 
produced some remarkable 
success stories. 

Built by English Estates as 
its first' specialized high-tech 
development the first phase is 
fully let to about 20 companies 
mainl y involved in comput- 
ers. There are 42 single-storey 
units in 42.000 square feet all 
with their own front door and 
parking space, put up at a cost 
of £1,100,000. 

The second phase, compris- 
ing 22,700 square feet, was 
completed last year and is 

about halffulL A third phase is 
being considered. 

The park was conceived 
from a university site which 
had been earmarked , for ex- 


and 


. the past the plastic 
surgery was done by surgical , 
sutures, similar to tying knots 
in the skin. This left a kind of 
zipper effect with puncture 
holes on tbe skin. 

The new technique of spot 
welding involves lacking the 
skin tissues together with 
droplets of glue. It is much 
neater than the suture meth- 
od, leaving fewer serious per- 
manent marks. 

Biomedical sciences is an 
. interesting new depannent at 
Bradford. It is a combination 
of courses in applied biology, 
pharmacology and medical 

sciences, together with some 
new ideas, which were brought 
together after the 1981 Uni- 
versity Grants Committee 
cuts. ' ■ 

New research into 
infertility 

The new biomedical sci- 
ences course is considered to 
be unique in its scientific basis 
and ethos. Its underlying 
theme is to provide an under . 
standing of disease proces- 
sions, the methods used, in 
their investigation amt the 
evaluation . and screening, of 
drugs used in The treatment of 
disease. . - 

One of the dep ar tment's 
most interesting lines of re- 


search is in infertility 
intersexuality. . 

It is sometimes found that 
male or female intersexuality 
is due to a fault in the 
chromosomes. The Bradford 
researchers work out how 
these anomolies occur and 
how they might be treated. 
Most ore not treatable. 

The researchers examine 
the ovaries of women and tbe 
testes of men. Some patients 
have an ovary on one side of 
the body and testes on the 
other, and are, therefore, 
known as intersexuaL 

The school of biomedical 
sciences contains a clinical 
epidemiology research -unit 
established in March 1985 to 
explain the poor health of 
Bradford residents. 

- People die -younger in the 
city' than elsewhere in the 
country and deaths among 
new-born babies are also high- 
er. The unit is examining what 
can be done to make Bradford 
a. healthier city. 

One of the keys might be 
nutrition among Asian wom- 
en. There appears to be a 
higher incidence of d e a th s 
among Asian females who are 
also fighter than indigenous 
women. 

The unit is also looking at 
heart disease to see whether 
that is a major cause of death, 
in the elderly, and more so in 
Bradford than in other parts of 
the country. 



Tailor-made for 
business people 


The Management Centre re- 
flects Bradford's applied ap- 
proach by concentrating on 
practical work. It is not for 
nothing that it was once 
known as the “businessman's 
business school." 

.As one of Europe's oldest 
and largest business schools, 
with a strong reputation for 
research, it has been chosen as 
the national centre for doctor- 
al training in management by 
the Economic and Social Re- 
search Council. 

Twenty per cent of courses 
are what is known as “post 
experience", designed for 
adults already in work. The 
remainder are degree courses. 

The centre's particular 
strengths are in interpersonal 
skills, marketing and in the 
development of top managers. 
Many short, post-experience 
courses are tailor-made for 
individual companies or insti- 
tutions such as Unilever. ICI. 
BP, National Giro. Allied 
Breweries and Rio Tinto Zinc. 

The centre is currently in- 
volved in management train- 
ing for the top boy's' public 
schools belonging to the 
Headmasters' Conference. 

A total of 650 people are 
undertaking degrees at the 
centre, of whom 350 are 
studving undergraduate de- 
grees. The BSc in business 
studies is a three-year course, 
giving students a grounding in 
statistics, maths, computing 
economics and accountancy

and would become involved 
with the university. The result 
is that it attracted technologi- 
cally advanced business rather 

than routine manufacture. 

About five of the science 
pa rk's businessmen are direct- 
ly linked with the university in 
that they left academe in order 
to set up on their own com- 
mercially. 

, .One couple was. Dr. David . 
Buttlahd and his wife Judy 
who bad worked as a. comput- 
er officer and a res earch 
assistant at the university. 
They have become a 
ListerhilTs success story. 

Their project was to devel- 
op computer graphics .for the 
university. In the early days 
they made these available 
without charge to other uni- 
versities. They realized there 
was a market for their prod- 
uct, took the plunge and left 
the university to form their 
own company. 

In the first year they re- 
ceived help from the 
university’s own research 
company, Bradford Universi- 
ty Research Ltd. . 

Then they increased their 
capital with fin a n c i al help 
from the National Enterprise 
Board and now produce some 
extremely good computer 
graphics which are selling well 


They were the first tenants 
in the park, beginning as an 
outfit of two, building up to 
four people and then adding 
another two in their second 
year. By 1984 they had a staff 
of seven and a turnover of 
£100,000. Last year their turn- 
over had increased to 
£200,000. 

They were too crowded m 
their accommodation and 
tooka Z500 square feet unit in 
the second phase of the sci- 
ence park's development. 

Another company called 
BIT is working in the field of 
intelligence systems comput- 
ing. A third company, Eltec, 
was begun by Dr Colin 
Wormold, a former member 
of the university’s staff. It has 
taken 4,000 square feet and 
specializes in computer servic- 
ing, distribution and tra inin g. 

A fourth company. Occupa- 
tional Health Services, is a 
hygiene laboratoxy specializ- 
ing in hazards at work, such as 
asbestos. , ... 

' Mr West said he thought it 
was the job of a university to 
create something real out of its 
activities. “We fed this practi- 
cal application is part of our 
job as a university," he said. 

“This park is a success story 
in an inner city area which has 
not got much. That is very 
good for morale.” None of the 
companies has been failures 
and the success of some can be 
measured by the number of 
Porscbes in the car park. 

The Science Park has creat- 
ed about 200 jobs on site from 
nothing, and the companies 
are turning over an estimated 
£8m a year. 


When Mikhail Gorbachov, the 
Soviet leader, visited Britain 
h»«t year be was shadowed by a 
top-flight interpreter from 
Bradford University. 

Richard Pollock is the 
coarse tutor on the postgradu- 
ate dipknaa/MA course in 
interpreting and translating. 
He specializes in Russian aim 
divides his work between 
tMfhing, translating and act- 
ing as an Augto-Rnssian con- 
sultant on, for example, Soviet 
negotiating methods. 

The postgraduate course in 
interpreting a»d translating at 
Bradford is highly regarded 
and has given the university an 
international reputation _ for 
training professional linguists. 

Its make has to be extreme- 
ly selective because only 12 of 
the 120 applicants with first 
dass honours and upper sec- 
ond degrees are accepted. 

The department prides itself 
on raising the standards and 
status of professional Inter- 
preters and translators. Its 


Speaking words 
for Gorbachov 


expertise is reflected in its 
undergraduate work too where 
there are tint* four-year 
courses: a BA in European 
studies which is a modern 
language and a social science; 
and a BA in management 
sciences and French. 

With 28 tenured staff and 
320 students, tbe department 
provides what might be called 
an unconventional language 
ed ucati on compared with most 
other institutions of higher 
education. It specializes in 
communicative skills rather 
than in literature. 

The BA-modern languages 
degree, the biggest course with 
an unnnal intake of 80, offers 
students the opportunity to 
develop spoken and written 


skills in French, German, 
Russian and Spanish. 

Literature is simply one 
option, together with the poli- 
tics or economics of the conn- 
try under study, from which 
students choose under the 
heading of European Area 
Studies. Politics and econom- 
ics are the most popular 
options. 

Tbe rest of the students’ 
time is taken np with language 
work — translation of general, 
literary, political, economic 
p assages and oral work. 

This emphasis on practical 
. lan guage work is perhaps not- 
surprising given that Brad ford 
is a technological university 
set np after the Robbins report 
had called for modern bun- 


as well as in psychology and 
sociology. By the third year 
they are introduced to the 
sharper end of business — 
production, marketing and fi- 
nancial management. 

There is also a BSc in 
managerial sciences, which is 
business studies plus informa- 
tion technology, and the BA m 
management studies and 
French. 

In the postgraduate area 
there is a full-time one-year 
MBA, the second largest in the 
country, taking about 1 10 

students. Well over half of 
these students finance them- 
selves on bank loans and 
savings, and a handful are 

company sponsored. 

The part-time MBA, lasting 
three years, attracts an intake 
of about 50, of whom three or 
four last year were managing 
directors doing the degree in 
their spare time. 

Professor Chris Higgins, the 
centre's director, says that one 
of These managing directors 
told him he had learnt so 
much on the course that he 
had created 100 new jobs in 
the past three years. 

The centre's doctoral pro- 
gramme is highly regarded 
and 100 PhDs were achieved 
in 1984/85, more than in any 
other UK business school. 
Research is divided into three 
major groups: managerial eco- 
nomics, organizational analy- 
sis and production 
management 

ma ges to be less remote from 
job prospects. 

Students on the modem 
lan g ua g es coarse spend their 
year abroad in an industry in 
two five-month periods in each 
of the two countries they are 
studying. 

This means that a student 
doing French and German will 
spend five months in French 
industry and five months in 
German industry, usually in 
the marketing or export rales 
departments. Students do 
placements with companies 
such as the French national o9 
company, Eff-Aqmtane, and 
tbe German Siemens AG. 

Professor Roger Tilfonl 
rays the relevance of the 
courses explains why the uni- 
versity attracts such good 
candidates. ; 

To get into Bradford to read 
.modem languages a student 
-must have more than three Bs 
at A-levek for the management 
sciences coarse with a lan- 
guage they have to do even 
better.

THE TIMES FRIDAY MARCH 14 1986 


RUGBY UNION: ENGLAND ARE PLEASED TO BE UNDERDOGS 


Concentration 
is crucial if 
French are to 
be extended 

From David Hands, Rugby Correspondent, Paris 


England completed their 
training yesterday, in prepara- 
tion for tomorrow's final five 
rations' championship match 
against France at the Parc des 
Princes, with a stern lecture 
from both the captain and 
coach. The message, in es- 
sence, was to concentrate and, 
by inference, the reminder of 
the points England have con- 
ceded this season by not doing 
so. 

'I ‘ The English squad spent 
q.ver two hours at the La 
Boulie Golf Club in Versailles, 
■working on their scrummag- 
ing and on developing their 
back play on a mild day with 
more than a hint of spring in 
the air. They also gave consid- 
erable thought to their reac- 
tions in different pressure 
Situations, reactions which in 
some matches this season 
have proved fallible. 

‘ They will admit, candidly, 
dial France are overwhelm- 
ingly favourites tomorrow, 
which will make a change 
since England have been 
cursed with that tag in their 
last three matches. Nigel Mel- 
ville. the captain, said yester- 
day that if they did not tackle 
the French first time and put 
them down, they would be 
struggling. 

, “We hope very much that 
w£ will be able to scrummage 
ggainst them and take them on 
in that area" Melville said. It 
is an obvious area of English 
strength and. if successful, 
may cause the French some 
frustration with consequent 
fcffifct to their temperament, 
w^iich can at times be brittle. 

„ To that end England asked 
Tim Francis to bring to their 
side one of the Power House 
•scrummaging machines — the 
Jon in which Francis is a 
partner — which they have 
used all season and which 
proved so fruitful for last 
season's Australians. The 


£3.000 machine was waiting 
for them but a supply of balls 
had gone astray, it was as welL 
therefore, that England had 
their own supply of the 
Addidas balls which will be 
used in tomorrow's match (the 
intention is to drop the match 
ball into the stadium from a 
passing helicopter), and whose 
handling and kicking charac- 
teristics differ materially from 
the balls used in the British 
game. 

Andrew, England's stand- 
off half, has teen practising 
kicking with such a ball this 
week, though English support- 
ers will hope he can also bring 
the best out of bis backs by 
handling it "We have won 
two out of three games so tar 
this season and we still 
haven’t started playing” Mi- 
chael Weston, chairman of 
selectors, said yesterday. 

“That may be a comment 
on the opposition but it isn't 
intended as such. When we 
did construct a very good try 
(against Ireland) it was disal- 
lowed. And we have given 
away so many points — it 
mates me weep when I watch 
the videos and see the mis- 
takes which have let people 
back into the game”. 

Hence the harsh words from 
Melville and Martin Green, 
the coach, at the end of 
training. The French, who 
believed that in scoring four 
trys against Wales in Cardiff 
that their backs did not do 
themselves justice, will punish 
any English mistakes tomor- 
row in summary manner 

Erbani and Champ, the two 
back row men, took slight 
knocks in training this week 
but came through yesterday's 
light workout while Simms, 
the England centre, was confi- 
dent that his hamstring prob- 
lems are behind him. 
England's main problem how- 
ever lies just ahead 


Improvement but 
but can do better 

/v 

Welsh Rngbjt by Gerald Davies 


i -The end-of-term rugby report 
last season did not make 
jcomfonable reading. The 
staff/pupil relationship was not 
what it should have been and 
there were several cases of 
waywardness, even of truancy. 
Teachers appeared to be firm, 
too firm perhaps, and those in 
tfieir charge too set in their 
ways. 

- So. what of this year? The 
class of '86 showed flair, were 
apt to make errors, some were a 
bit precocious but whose am- 
bitions tended to be held back 
by one or two who were a bit 
long in the tooth — or at least 
performed as if they might be. 

The quick ones were held 
hack by one or two plodders. 
They need a year or two to get to 
Alps with the subject but the 
.final exam, in Australia and 
New Zealand, may arrive too 
sfton. They are short on experi- 
ence. To this end the recom- 
mendation of a sharp crammers 
'-egunse. designed for better inter- 
national understanding 10 
• Australia, Italy and the South 
Seas may not be quite or the 
.-standard needed for the rigorous 
tests in the summer of *87. 

.. It would appear to have been 
.•a. season of much excitement 
•and new-found enthusiasm, but 
the -reality shows they have bred 
. no better, on the surface at least, 
•than others over the last four 
y£ars. ending up with only two 
.wans, which included the dis- 
proportionate number of 16 
-penalties and only four tries. 
.There has been talk of a freer, 
•more attacking, game yet fewer 
'tries were scored this season 
Itfaan in the last three. 

'•*Tn technical coaching 
■terms." Tony Gray, the national 
coach, says, “we did not achieve 

- what we would like to have 
achieved. We could only go part 

'.of the way. Of the five sessions 
.we had arranged for Monday 
evenings — we ignored the 
.weekends, they are too busy - 
four of them could not take 

- place because of the- severe 
■.weather. Then, when we did get 
-together, the forwards coukbn 
-do much contact work, tackling. 
' rucking and soon because of the 


frozen surface. Ground contact 
was out of the question ” ' 

But could he look back on 
some success? 

“Where we did succeed — 
Derek Quinnell and myself — 
was in transmitting to the 
players what we thought, the 
approach should be. We had to 
see eye to eye on our attitudes to 
the game. In that respect we 
succeeded. . 

“We wanted to concentrate 
on attack. We did not want the 
emphasis on defence. In retro- 
spect now. you may say that was 
folly because you could say that 
is what lei us down in the end. 
There were defensive errors 
against the French and the 
Scottish teams. But we wanted 
to get away from a negative, 
defensive attitude to the game as 
a whole. 

“What 1 am pleased about is 
the talent of some of the 
youngsters, like John Devereux, 
for example. He came on well as 
an individual player. The same 
could be said of others, each one 
had his special moment. From 
now on we need to work out a 
more collective response. 

The weaknesses were self- 
evident: the forwards. We all 
know the kind of players we now 
need. The day of the man who 
goes out on the field simply to 
scrummage is over. Of course, 
you cannot ignore that aspect of 
play but you must look for some 
extra contribution. . 

“From the selection point of 
view we felt perhaps that we did 
not want to upset things. Be- 
cause we were beginning io 
establish certain attitudes we 
did not want to upset matters by 
chopping and changing. It was a 
delicate situation. I warned a 
happy gang.” 

Gray is off to Australia on 
Monday with the Welsh Sevens 
team. He leaves behind players 
he might have liked to take with 
him. but in this case club 
commitments in the Cup semi- 
finals lakes precedence over 
national selection. The Sevens 
competition cannot be consid- 
ered all that important by the 
Welsh Rugby Union.

Family honour at 
stake for Lafond 


Paris 

Two major events dominate 
the French scene this weekend. 
No doubt the elections for the 
National Assembly on Sunday 
hold the pole position; however, 
a substantial section of the 
slightly cynical French elec- 
torate may disagree. 

In their redoing the Five 
Nations champions hip game 
against England, or La Grande 
Finale, as they dabbed it, is fin- 
more significant. “We had a 
television audience of jnst nnder 
10 million for our game against 
Wales in Cardiff. We expect to 
do better than that tomorrow, we 
will probably set a new audience 
record this weekend," Pierre 
Sal me, the French television 
commentator, said. 

Net since tire opening game 
- the first 
conn try to play 
against France 80 years ago — 
has a rngby encoanter created 
such a stir. Fiance are expected 
to win against England, the only 
nation to have a better record 
than the French at Parc des 
Princes since 1980. Bat that nay 
prove a handicap. 

“It's going to be a very hard 
game,” the Fkencfa captain, Dan- 
iel Dnbroca, said. “I've been on 
the losing side in 1982 and on 
the winning one in 1984. 1 prefer 
to forget the farmer game.” ' 

There is one Frenchman, 
though, for whom the recent 
scores and records ag a ins t En- 
gland have limited sfepificance. 
He wears the French jersey for 
the seventh time tomorrow and 
has never played against the 
English. However, Jean- 
Baptiste Lafond, of Racing Chib 
de France, has strong family 
reasons to do well against 
France's traditional enemy. 
Born in Paris 24 years ago, the 
young foil back-cam-wing is the 
heir of a remarkable rngby 
family of Basque origin. 

“My grandfather, Andre 
Lafond, played in the same 
position as I do for France in our 
first ever draw against England 
in 1922,” Lafond said. The ti- 
ll draw at Twickenham ended a 
16-year French famine, bat it 
took another five years before 
France recorded their first win 
against England, 3-0 at Co- 
lombes in 1927. 

The captain of that glorious 
French team was the legendary 
Adolphe Jaardgny, the man who 
replaced Andre Lafond on the 
wing. “He got injured and was 
never capped again. I feel it is 
my doty to do one better for my 
grandfather. 


“For me the game against the 
English has a doable meaning. It 
is the final of the championship 
and I want to do weB in front of 
my own public. Don't forget I 
am the only Parisian in the 
team. Second, Pm op against one 
of the best if not the best wings 
in the world. Rory Underwood. 
That is going to be a match 
within the match. I only hope I 
get enough ball on tomorrow.” 

His own career was marred by 
a series of iqjuries. He made his 
international debut as a replace- 
ment for the iqjnred Bianco 
against the tonring Australians 
in Clermont-Ferrand in 1983, 
when he dropped a goal making 
sore that his name found the 
place in the record books. Bat he 
had to leave the field with a 
broken shoulder following a 
tackle against Australian lock 
forward Steve Williams. 

Lafond caught the eye of the 
French selectors in January 
1983 in the now defunct French 
regions championship and gave 
a glimpse of his" potential' when 
be scored a try for the Barbar- 
ians against Scotland at 
Murrayfield the following 
March. 

The niggling series of injuries 
kept him oat of the international 
reckoning for about two years 
but once back to full fitness he 
was offered a chance against the 
Soviet Union in Tolle'last May. 
He took it with both hands and 
made the touring squad to 
Argentina by a whisker when 
Bianchi dropped out injured. 

Lafond played in both Tests 
against the Pumas and scored a 
try in the first interna ti onal in 
Buenos Aires. He added six 
touchdowns against die visiting 
Japanese last October, a 
spectacular dropped goal 
against the Irish in Paris and 
two glorious tries In Cardiff. 

“I haven't washed my boots 
since the game against the 
Welsh,” be said. “I want to keep 
a bit of the land of my fathers' 
between my studs. For me the 
win at Cardiff has the ingredi- 
ents of a dream that comes true. 
I used to watch t derision in the 
seventies when Wales were at 
their best and imagine myself 
oat there scoring a try. 

“I have had rngby in my Wood 
since I was fonr or five years old. 
All the photographs since the 
age of fonr show me holding a 
rugby ball in my hands. The red 
globules of my Wood are not 
round, they have the shape of a 
rngby balL”

YACHTING 

Gilms that 
spoilt 
best-laid 
plans 

By Barry Pickthall 

With the arrival of three more 
yachts in Puma del Este at the- 
end of the third stage of 
Whitbread's Round the World 
Race during the past 24 hours, 
the dock was ticking away last 
night for the S3ft French yacht, 
L'Espritd* Equipe, now expected 
to take over the handicap lead in 

this 27,000 mile event 

The Dutch yacht. Philips 
Innovator, skippered by Dirk 
Nauia, which has been leading 
at the start to this third leg from 
Auckland, crossed the tine 
shortly before 4.30am local time 
yesteraay, setting Lionel Pean 
and his crew on L'Esprite 
d'Equipe a 2116 hour margin to 
cover the final 60 miles. 

“We were just not able to 
break away from the small 
boats.” Nauta said. “Whenever 

we were able 10 build up some 
mileage between ourselves and 
L - Esprit d'Equipe we always ran 
into calms shortly after and they 
caught up with us again.” 

The previous evening, Peter 
Blake and bis crew, on Lion 
New Zealand, expressed equal 
dissatisfaction with the weather 
when they finally reached this 
Uruguayan port 32 hours be- 
hind the stage winner. UBS 
Switzerland. “We should have 
been here by 8 o’clock this 
morning but spent the night 
becalmed." Blake said 

The strongest conditions they 
experienced had been 36 knots 
of true wind across the deck for 
just 10 minutes. “For the rest, 
conditions were rarely above 30 
knots and more often below 
20.” he said 

“Lion New Zealand could 
never cover 350 miles in the day 
like UBS Switzerland She is just 
too heavy and we have to admit 
that. This boat was built to excel 
in heavy weather but so far in 
this race we've only had one 
storm.” the New Zealand skip- 
per said before adding that they 
were lying second overall on an 
elapsed time precisely because 
they have such a strong boat. 
“We are not the fastest boat by a 
long way. Cote d'Or is probably 
fastest in a straight line but has 
been held back by damage.” 

Icebergs proved a continuous 
hazard on the long run through 
the Southern Ocean, and Blake's 
men came dose to losing one of 
their number overboard The 
unlucky man was the bowman, 
Ed Dan by, whose harness came 
apart while being hoisted aloft 
one night to free rigging and 
later dimbed down shaken but 
otherwise unhurt leaving 
watch leader Grant Dolton to go 
up and finish the job. 

After rounding Cape Horn, 
light drizzle — another dis- 
appointment — Lion collided 
.with . four ^ giant sunfish .each 
weighing two tons or more. Any 
one of which could have dam- 
aged the rudder, just as a whale 
did shortly before Lion readied 
Auckland*, at the end of the 
second stage. 

Asked what his first thoughts 
had been on hearing the news 
that his New Zealand rivals on 
NZI Enterprise had been dis- 
masted, Blake smiled and told 
us of a radio conversation with 
NZI's skipper during the second 
leg, when Digby Taylor had 
bragged about needing a bigger 
pair of dividers to measure the 
distance between them .

Sandy Lyle. Bernhard Langer. 
Nick Faklo and Ken Brown are 
not the four musketeers, and 
there are no prizes for guessing 
which of the famous French 
quartet’s identity each would 
assume if they were, but it is 
greatiy encouraging 10 have 
these European swashbucklers 
at one's back at a tournament as 
huge and sprawling as Arnold 
Palmer's S 500.000 (£345.000) 
Bay Hill Classic here in 
temperatures above 90 degrees. 

Surely one or more of these 
Ryder Cup heroes, who per- 
formed wonders against the 
Americans at The Belfry last 
autumn, can chase tire natives 
back down the steps' of tire 
castle, or, in ibis case, along the 
fairways and greens of the 
formidable 7,103-yard par-71 
course: 

Last year. Longer and Faldo 
finished nine strokes behind 
Fuzzy Zoeller. the winner, and 
won $6,520 each, while Lyle 
ended up 20 behind mainly 
because of a 79 in the third 
round. 

A lot of water has flowed into 
the castle moat since then, Lyle 
having won the Open, of course: 
Longer, having assumed the 
Masters' green Jacket, still lead- 
ing the $2 million Vantage Cup 
and third on the money list: and 
Brown having joined them 
among the 50 leading money- 
winners. Only Faldo's sword has 
rusted over a biL but he is 
sharpening it night and day and 
should stand back to back with 
his comrades in due course. 

Lyle made the best start 
yesterday in a wind like a blast 
furnace, birdying the long first 
with a good pitch and gening 
down a 20-footer for another 
r.irdie at the fourth. He went out 
in an excellent 34 and looked set 
fora fine score. 

Brown finished first with 71 
which was a fine effort in 
difficult conditions. The Scot 
cot out in 35 with birdies at the 
fifth and sixth holes, and al- 
though he struggled a bit against 
the gale coming borne, he 
finished with a stout par-four 
over the lake at the ISth. Greg 
Norman took the early lead at 
four-under-par after 1 2 holes.

The England cricketers flew 
here yesterday morning, expect- 
ing to have Mike Gatling back 
with them by tire evening. He 
will almost certainly play in the 
match against Barbados, the 
Shell Shield champions, starting 
today, as he needs to do to get 
the feel of things again before 
next Wednesday’s one-day 
international and the Third Tea 
match two days later. 

“Don’t expect anything to 
change dramatically because 
I'm there." Gatting said before 
leaving London, and no one 
wilL (t is only 3 V: weeks since his 
nose was so horribly broken by 
Marshall and he has been to 
England and back for an opera- 
tion since then. 

On the other hand, he is 
spendidly lough, and soon after 
the injury his nerve seemed 


intact. He told me then that he 
would rather it had been, bis 
nose than an arm or even a 
finger but he has been missed 
for his spint and zest for the 
fray, as well of course for his 
batting. . _ 

He will be spared MarshalTs 
immediate attentions if he plays 
against Barbados — Greenidge, 
Haynes and Marshall have all 
been given tire game off — and 
Garner, who though as captain 
has opted to play, may not give 
himself much bowling. 

With Marshall out of it. the 
game could provide the best 
chance of tire tour so far for the 
batsmen. There are some young, 
fastish bowlers in the Barbados 
side, coached by Charlie Grif- 
fith, but none with his pace and 
power. 

Politically, the first fortnight 


in Trinidad was much less of a 
hassle than had been feared. The 
crowds were better than, ex- 
pected. if not as large as they 
used to be. and by the end of the 
Test match the demonstrators 
had lost heart Nothing that & 
happened off the field in this 
respect could be said to have 
had an adverse effect 

The visit ended with an 
attempt by the manager and 
captain on Wednesday evening 
to son out certain problems of 
communication with the Press, 
aggravated by the wholesale 
vilification of Botham. 

I only wi&b I felt that those 
responsible for it had the guts of 
drew victim. They have obvi- 
ously depressed him, but if be 
and Gatting can get among the 
runs against Barbados things 
will be looking up. 


Forget raking in the shekels 
and consider the players 


Port of Spain 

We have beard educated 
guesses that Graham Gooch will 
not tow again, and we have 
heard speculation that Ian 
Botham will soon call it aday, so 
far as travelling for Fnghmri b 
concerned. One utigfce be 
tempted to throw one's hands ap 
in terror at such a thing. 
Frankly, I have every sympathy. 

There have been two Test 
matches so Ear this year. There 
are 14 — yes, 14 — to go. Three 
more here in the West Indies, 
three in England against India, 
three more against New Zea- 
land, and then off to Australia 
for five more. And Lord knows 
bow many ooe-day inter- 
nationals there will be. Surely, 
this is too much. 

We have lost the knack of 
making special occasions truly 
speciaL Once, the staple was 
county cricket, with occasional 
heady forays into Test cricket, 
Test matches were something 
magic. Now the county 
championship is conducted 
virtually in secret because all 
anyone wants to watch are Test 
matches. That is because Test 
matches are supposed to be 
speciaL The result has not been 
the production of unending ex- 
cellence. It has been to bring 
Test matches down to a plateau 
of ordinariness. The pursuit of 
excellence has, it seems, become 
a pursuit of mediocrity.

This was hot because he did

the stories that are appearing 
back home that have been 
relayed to them by word of 
month. The journalists* distor- 
tions themselves are distorted. 
When you are Ian Botham — the 
most newsworthy man in En- 


bc followed by another when it 
aB goes all right. As the man 
said when he missed the bus: 
“There'll be another one along 
in a minute.” The pre s sur es of 
Test cricket are enormous, but 
they do not came from the need 
to turn it on for tire great 
occasion. The pressures came 
from the renwcselessaem of 
international cricket. 

Yon might have thought that 
three months of playing cricket 
in the West ladies would have to 
be the most marvellous fim. even 
if things did go wrong, but you 
would be wrong. Teswiis® 
cricketers soon become lonely 
and homesick. Gooch misses 
Essex, aud is doing a lot of 
worrying about his ul®, Brenda, 
who is pregnant with twins. 
Cricketers are adult men who 
are forced to five without privacy 
to the extent of sharing rooms 
for months on end. They are 
together, in tact, for three or four 
months at a stretc h . They get 
weary of travelling, weary of one 
another, weary o' cricket 
■ Anyone who thinks that mus- 
ing round the world staying at 
five-star hotels is, by definition, 
fabulous, lacks all imagination. 
The Trinidad HBton, where 
players have been for the past 
fortnight, would be a nice place 
to spend a weekend — especially 

if you could get away early on 
Sunday, ln'tbe political climate

deflUPStrdm, the players were 
advised to stay in tire hotel 
Their • existence is. almost 
hoauddafiy claustrophobic. 

What mates things much 
worse is the relationship with 
the Press. There is always an 
ocean of mistrust between 
sportsmen and media: when the 
two parties five so dose for so 
long, this gets worse. Of course, 
very few English papers reach 
the touring outposts. Players 
receive and pass on scanty and 
approximate information about 


Australia on top thanks 
to century by Marsh 


Auckland (Reuter) — Geoff 
Marsh, the opening batsman, 
obtained his first Test century to 
put Australia in a solid position 
at the end of the first day’s play 
in the third Test against New 
Zealand yesterday. 

Australia, who were 227 fin- 
four at the dose, dominated 
proceedings until the last half an 


hour when New Zealand- took 
three late wickets, including that 
of their captain. Border, for 17. 
Border, who scored centuries in 
each innings of the second Test, 
fished at Chatfieid. and the 
wicketkeeper, Smith, caught the 
boll in from of first slip. 

Marsh drove Hadlee through 
mid-wicket fix' three runs to 
reach his maiden Test hundred 
and his ninth first-class hun- 
dred. His century came up in 
245 minutes from 224 balls and 
included 12 fours. 


The second-wicket stand be- 
tween Marsh and Phillips, who 
was out for 62, eclipsed the 
record in New Zealaud-Austra- 
lia Tests of 141 between 
Red path and Ian Chappell az 
Wellington in 1 973-74. 

Despite losing Border, Marsh 
and Phillips late in the day, 
Australia were, fully justified in 
batting first after winning the 
loss on a pitch that gave little 
support to the bowlers.

FOOTBALL- EVANS UNCOMF rmTArti p AT THOUGHT OF LEADING HIS TEAM OUT AT WEMBLEY 


Milk Cup final 

are 




By Stnart Jones 
Football Correspondent 

Oxford United win be fed 
out for the Milk Cup final by 
the most reluctant manager 
ever to appear at Wembley. 
For most, men in charge, the 
moment when they emerge 
from the tunnel to be over- 
whelmed by a waterfall of 
noise is the fulfilment of a 
dream but not, apparently, for 
Maurice Evans. 

After his side had complet- 
ed a 4-3 aggregate victory over 
Aston Villa on Wednesday, 
Evans admitted that be 
"didn't want it this way". He 
felt uncomfortable about the 
prospect of the inevi tabl e 
forthcoming publicity. 

The reticence of Evans, who 
also claimed that he did not 
care , whether bis team suc- 
ceeded or failed, will be eased 
by the presence ofhis opposite 
number. Jim Smith, his rival 
for the day as the manager of 
Queen's Park Rangers, is a 
close friend. They happen to 
be responsible for lifting Ox- 
ford out of obscurity. 

Smith took them from the 
third division into the £rk 
and now Evans, his former 
assistant, has guided them to 
their first appearance in the 
national stadium. Although 
the rise has been almost as 
explosive as that of Watford, 
Evans is concerned that Ox- 
ford may foil down into the 
second division at the end of 
the season. 

Smith has similar fears that 
Rangers could also follow the 
path taken by both Norwich 
City, the Milk Cup holders. 1 
and Sunderland, the beaten 
finalists last season. Both con- 
cede that they would rather 
their dubs slay up titan win 
the event that is to be televised 
live m five weeks. 

No such foie win befall the 
two clubs that will qualify for 


Cup venues 

_ In the semi- finals of the FA 
Cop on April S Everton wfll pfay 
Sheffield Wednesday at V31a 
Park and Liverpool or Watford 
will meet Southampton at White 
Han- 


dle FA Cup final on May 10. 
The field, belatedly reduced to 
five on Wednesday, -is con- 
fine to the top half of the first 
division* and 'includes. 
Everton, who knocked out 
Luton Town in a sixth round 
replay and are favoured to 
complete the double. 

Fixture congestion remains 
the greatest threat to their 
realistic ambitions,' and the 
injuries that they will almost 
inevitably suffer coakl also 
hurt England's World Cop 
preparations. Reid, for in- 
stance, pulled up painfully 
midway through the second 
half and left Goodison Park 
on crutches to go to hospital 
for treatment on a damaged 
calf muscle. 


Reid, challenging Wilkins 
for a place in England's mid- 
field in Mexico, is doubtful for 
Everton's game at home to 
Chelsea on Sunday. Lineker, 
who scored the lone decisive 
goal to take his total to 33 -for 
the season, Steven and 
Bracewell, all probable mem- 
bers of Bobby Robson's party, 
were all wounded by - heavy 
tackles as welL

Midlands move is 
pyramid shaker 


Non-League Football by PanI Newman 


The tong-expeCTEd-bte akawa y 
by a number of Midlands clubs 
from the national pyramid 
structure of non-Leagne football 
will take place at the end of tho 
season. At least 21 clubs, includ- 
ing 1 2 from the Northern Coun- 


ties East League, are lo^join the 


Central Midlands League 
which will form a “supreme 
division" to accommodate 
them. 

The move is a serious setback 
for supporters of the pyramid 
system, which links, leagues 
throughout England and is in- 
tended to provide avenues for 
ambitious clubs to progress. 

One of the faults of the 
present structure has been the 
lack of a league specifically for 
leading Midlands dubs: the 
Midlands League amalgamated 
with the Yorkshire League four 
years ago to form the Northern 
Counties East League. Several of 
the Midlands dubs in tbat 
league have been particularly 
unhappy with the amount of 
travelling they have bad to do 
frustrated with the- 


the -Central Midlands League, 
said the Football Association 
had been.asked- to. accept the 
new division as a “feeder" for 
the Multipart League, but he 
added: “We are hoping within a 
few years to he given equal 
status to . the :Multipart and 
Southern Leagues. We believe 
the Midlands deserves a league 


of that standing. We are not out 
to dismantle the 


pyramid, but 
we believe there is a largearea of 
the country not catered for Try 
the current system.” - 
Meanwhile, a potential split 
in the south-east section- of the 
pyramid appears to have been 
averted. The VauxhaU Opel 
League recently announced that 
in order to meet their quota of 
88 dubs there would be no 
relegation from tire league this 
summer. . Their four feeder 
leagues protested this would 
weaken their competitions, but 
a peace agreement was reached 
this week. No details will be 
announced until the agreement 
has been ratified by all the 
t committees.

To help combat the financial 
problems of the English and 
Scottish game, the Football 
Trust, with the help of the 
national bodies, have published 
a Digest of Football Statistics, 
price £5. The 63-page booklet 
contains details of attendances 
and gate receipts for all major 
competitions as well as players' 
salaries, transfer fees, iqjnies 
and disciplinary measures. 

Whether there is any useful 
information to be gleaned from 
the statistics for the benefit of 
individual clubs is questionable. 
Of the vital issues, it tells ns 
nothing new: attendances are 
dramatically down in recent 
years, the cost of watching 
football astronomically up. 

Tony Rnshbrook, a retired 
senior Government statistician 
: who prepared this first edition of 
the digest, admitted that several 
relevant details concerning 
dobs' sources of revenue other 
than gate * receipts, such as 
advertising, catering and lot- 
teries, have not been available to 
-them as yet.’ ' 

Richard Faalkner, the sec- 
retary of the Football Trust, said 
that many dubs were np to five 
years behind submitting b a lance 
sheets. % Norman Chester, the 
deputy chairman of the Trust, 
agreed tbat there needed to be a 
.way of standardizing statements 
from dobs. “There is a dob not 
a thousand mites from Oxford 
who lamp together gate receipts 
with those from transfers, which 
-is most-confusing," he said. 

But hidden among the pleth- 
ora of figures are the number of 
players earning over £60JH>0 
has leapt from two to 24 in the 
four years to January, 1985. 

There will be some educated 
guesses at the kwe individual in 
the second division at January, 
1985, who was earning between 
£50,000 and £60,000. But at 
least some figures remain 
roughly* constant, like those for 
gesticulating in front of an 
opponent taking a free-kick or 
throw-in (Scottish League). * 
Apart from those mtgentiemanly 
seasons of 1982-83 and 1983-84, 
k has remained at one. 

• The Football League have 
signed a three-year deal with 
BBC national radio, worth about 
£200,000. The contract main- 
tains radio's traditional Sat- 
urday afternoon second-half 
commentary - together with 
coverage of op to six midweek 
League games and ties from the 
new .Utdewood's Cop. 


It is hard to believe that any 
expedient and intimidatory sys- 
tem could ever extinguish the 
fires of Brazilian originality: 
enough teams have tried over 
the past six or seven World Cup 
competitions. Mercifully, as yet, 
the exceptional skills survive. 

That they went under by two 
goals, from Briegel and Aloffs in 
the first and . last minutes, in _ 
Wednesday night's so-called '

signil 

considering that the lack of 
match practice and a chill night 
which persuaded the Brazilians 
to wear gloves. 

Tele Santana, recently re- 
instated as manager, had not 
wanted to come to Europe, but 
West Germany legitimately en- 
forced a previous agreement. 
Some of the implications of the. 
play were both alarming and 
reassuring. 

Bobby Robson, one of a 
dozen international managers 
who came to study the nation 
with the most prolific produc- 
tion of natural skills, observed 
that had it been a league match, 
three men could have been sent 
off. 

Brazil, of course, would al- 
ways prefer to destroy the 
opposition with the chloroform 
of their technical wizardry, but 
when it comes to kicking, they 
can be as fierce as the rest, which 
they once memorably proved in 
the Battle of Berne against 
Hungary. Provoked now by 
German defenders, slapping 
into their backs, they returned 
the threat with fouling as 
flamboyant as their dribbling. 

Brazil bad none to blame but 
themselves when defeated, 
sadly, by Italy four years ago. 
but the referees, as ever, will 
bold a responsibility in Mexico 
which it will be surprising, 
selected as they are on geo- 
graphical representation, if they 
uphold- Agnolin. of Italy, 
booked two on Wednesday and 
it could have been six. 

Let us. however, concentrate 
on the positive elements. “Our 
football when it is good, is like 
music; it is ah emotion." Joao 
Saida aha said before the match. 
“You will not hear much 
tonight" Saldanba, now in his 
sixties, weatherbeaten as a 
fisherman, was the manager 
who colourfully prepared that 
incomparable team of 1 970, and 
who was sacked and replaced by 
Zagalo a few weeks before the 
tournament in Mexico. ' 

He is splendidly sardonic. 
Oscar, the captain and centre 
back from Sao Paulo, is no good, 
be said. Then why has he played 
61 times for Brazil, I asked? 
“That's not his fault" Saldanha 
said with a meaningful shrug. 
“Unfortunately, be has not 
learned anything yet He is like 
Jack Charlton, dominating in an 
area of a few square yards if the 
ball is coming at him. but not 
knowing what to do with it when 
he gets it" 

As much was proved in the 
first quarter of an hour when 
Germany, even without the 
injured Linbarski and V oiler in 
attack, ripped Brazil's defence to 
pieces, only Carlos in .goal and 
Mozcr remaining steady. 

"We were bound to make 
mistakes in what was a difficult 
first match after a long 
interval," he said, “but I was 
pleased with the new players." 


As Enzo Bearzot, of Italy, 
remarked, it will be a different 
Brazil under the Mexican sun, 
with 10,000 of their own 
supporters generating a tribal 
dance of drums on the te n a ce s . 

The problem for Santana may 
prove to be not so much the 
defence as the midfield, where 
Falcao and Socrates showed 
their age. Their touch and eye 
are still at times breathtaking, as 
when they called the tune for 20 
minutes before half-time, creat- 
ing the openings from which 
Muller — nicknamed after Gerd 
— and Careca could and should 
have won the match. 
Schumacher, admittedly, helped 
to prevent them. But the old 
men can now be broken by being 
run, which is what the robust 
Germans did in the first and last 
20 minutes. Brazil were some- 
times five against six in their 
own penally area. 

We saw dulls, however, which 
are without equal: yet the dou- 
ble question mark is whether 
Santana can harness them and 
the referees will provide legiti- 
mate protection- Edson, the 
Corinthians full-back, for exam- 
ple, attempted to catch a Ger- 
man forward pass dropping over 
his shoulder with his instep as 
he raced back towards his own 
goal: a technique which perhaps 
only Hoddle or Daluish in 
Britain could attempu But to a 
Brazilian it is second naiurc. 

The further Brazil go in the 
finals, the better they should 
become, one of the few teams 
with the ability to unhinge 
Uruguay, whom 1 expect to 
emerge as the form favourites. 
On this week's evidence 1 
cannot see Northern Ireland or 
Algeria getting in the way of 
Brazil and Spain in the first 
round, though Billy Bingham 
was putting on a reasonably 
cheerful face on Wednesday 

As for Scotland, they will be 
marginally encouraged by the 
report taken back by Andy 
Roxburgh, the chief national 
coach, for perusal by Alex 
Ferguson: that in midfield Ger- 
many tend to be prosaic and 
that much of their game is built 
as always on physical tenacity. 

They could be uplifted, of 
course, by Schuster. 
Rummeniggc. perhaps with in- 
side information, is saying he 
expects Schuster to be playing in 
next month's friendly with 
Switzerland. 

Beckenbauer conceded that 
after the first 20 minutes they 
were given problems by Brazil's 
individual ability — who 
wouldn't be? — and made too 
many mistakes. Yet the group 
with Uruguay and Denmark 
looks more than ever for- 
midable. Beckenbauer reflected 


ominously: “For a friendly, this 
hard, and 


was (physically) very 
it will be even harder in 
Mexico.” Heaven help us.

IN BRIEF 


Sport may 
benefit 


from the 


budget 


Chancellor Nigel Lawson is 
being urged to give British sport 
a major financial boost in next 
Tuesday's budget. The Central 
Council of Physical Recreation 
has put together a five-point 
plan which, it claims, “would do 
much to assist the development 
and modernization of sport in 
Britain and provide a great 
incentive for youngsters. The 
top priority is a reduction in the 
excise duty on football pools 
betting," 

MOTOR RACING: BMW. the 
West German car manufac- 
turers. yesterday announced 
plans to build ineir own For- 
mula One car wiihin the next 
three years. Niki Lauda, the 
former world champion, will act 
as adviser on construction to 
BMW. who are this year provid- 
ing engines for the Brabham. 
Arrows and Benetton teams. 
BOXING: Pat Cowdell will 
challenge for the British junior 
lightweight title when he takes 
on the champion. John Doherty, 
in his first defence, at Sl 
G eorge's Hall. Bradford, on 
April 17. 

RUGBY UNION: Saracens will 
play two important home games 
at the same time on Sunday 
afternoon. The North London 
club will take on Bedford in a 
John Smith Ment Table B 
match, but since they have also 
been ordered to play their 
Middlesex Cup semi-final with 
Richmond because the final is 
scheduled for the following Sun- 
day. the dub will field their 
second team against Richmond, 
knowing that victory will guar- 
antee them a place in the third 
round of next season's John 
Player Cup. The two matches 
will be played on adjoining 
pilches at 3pm. 

RUGBY LEAGUE: The 
Bramley forward, Steve 
Hankins, and Runcorn back 
Paul Woods, were each sus- 
pended for six matches by the 
Rugby League disciplinary 
committee yesterday, because of 
recent dismissals. Four-match 
bans were imposed on Dave 
Bullough (Fulham) and Neil 
Frazer (Workington). 

• Warrington have appointed 
their first-team coach. Tony 
Barrow, caretaker manager 
following the resignation of Reg 
Bowden. 


ATHLETICS 


Wales may not keep 


up without Jones 


By Fat Butcher, Athletics Correspondent 


Sieve Jones has withdrawn 
from the world cross-country 
championships in NeufchiieL 
Switzerland, on March 23. be- 
cause of an Achilles tendon 
injury. 

The withdrawal of Janes, who 
finished third in the 1984 world 
championships, leaves Wgfes 
with a mediocre team since 
Roger Hackney, the other top- 
class Welsh runner, was not 
considered by the selectors be- 
cause he missed the national 
championships last month for 
the fourth lime in succession. 

Jones hopes to be fit again in 
time for the Kodak 1 0km final 
in Battersea Park on April 8. 
which is pan ofhis preparations 
for the Boston Marathon later 

next month. 

Problems with selectors, the 
Scotush ones this time, have 
caused another marathon run- 
ner. Allisier Hutton, (o with- 
draw from consideration for the 
Commonwealth Games. Hutton 
feels, with some justification, 
that his third place in last year's 
London Marathon in a Scotush 
record of 2hr 9min I6sec was 
sufficient io gain him selection 
for the Commonwealth race in 
his home town of Edinburgh 
this summer. 

But the selectors have nomi- 
nated this year's London Mara- 
thon on April 20 as their trial 
race, which Hutton feels is too 
dose to the Commonwealth 
Games for him to do himself 
justice. But he has dedded to 
run in London in an attempt to 
get one of the two places on the 
British team for the European 


Championships tn Stuttgart, a 
month after the Commonwealth 
Games. 

Another area of vexation in 
British athletics recently has 
been how to reduce the overall 
amount paid out to athletes, 
which resulted in a British 
Amateur Athletaic Board 
tBAAB) loss of £ I tjO.OOO last 
year, and how to make those 
payments equitable, in the wake 
of the £90.000 paid out to Zola 
Budd. 

But the BAAB's attempts to 
restructure payment on an 
objective basis of world 
rankings has brought criticism, 
focused on ja'dm thrower*. 
Tessa Sanderson an d Fauma 
Whitbread, getting £10.000 pfcr 
meeting. 

The International Athletes 
Club 1 1 AC), who maintain that 
ihc* have had “a flood of 
complaints” from their mem- 
bers because of * hat they see as 
ihe anomaly of the payments :o 
the two women, released their 
own suggested subvention plan 
yesterday, which they will use 
for their grand prix meeting .on 
August 8. 


However, since there is an 
overlap of IaC administrative 
membership on the committee 
of the Southern Counties AAA. 
who administer the Peugot Tal- 
bot Games, the IAC are also 
hoping that their plan will lye 
adopted for the other grand prix 
meeting in Britain. 

In the lAC scheme. Sandereoo 
and Whitbread would receive 
£2.400 and £2.100. respectively.

VOLLEYBALL 


Scots drop 
six for 
new look 


By Pan! Harrison 


For Scotland, the matches 
against England this weekend 
are the high point of an inter- 
national season that contains 
very little else. For England they 


are an important stepping stone 
Spr 


on the way to the Spring Cup. 
which the Scots habitually are 
too poor to attend. 

All the more reason, then, for 
the Scots* fierce pride — not to 
mention a certain amount of 
resentment — to surface this 
weekend. The men's teams meet 
in Scotland, tomorrow in 
Glenrothes and on Sunday in 
Linwood; the women play in 
England tomorrow at Leicester 
and on Sunday in Halifax. 

Last year. England's men won 
both matches narrowly. This 
year, the Scots have named six 
uncapped players in a new-look 
squad, saying goodbye in the 
process to two much-capped 
stalwarts. Kenny Barton, setter 
and former captain, and Ronnie 
Hamilton, the first Scot to win 
100 caps. 

The Scots have restructured 
their training programme and 
have also enlisted the help of 
John Syer. a sports psychologist. 

Both the English coaches. 
Andrew Lowcznowski (men) 
and Barry Swann (women) are 
coming to the end of their four- 
year terms. Both have tried to 
bring forward young, improving 
squads against a background of 
inadequate preparation time. In 
terms of international credibil- 


ity England are standing stilL

Illusions 
we must 
treasure 


By Conrad Voss Bark ^ 



A publicity handout from. 'a 
leading publisher on a new 
fishing boob claims fbar among 
other virtues the book clears 
away the myths of angling 
folklore. The claim is rather 
surprising. Presumably we are 
supposed to give two cheers-* at 
the thought of our myths befog 
cleared away, but the fact is*iris 
very* doubtful if we would. 

If there was anything that 
might put us off buying the book 
it would be the thought that 
some of our treasured illusions 
could be at risk. Mythology and 
fishing go together as amicably 
as eggs with bacon, and to have 
one without the other would.be 
to deprive life of a good deal of 
its savour. • **. i 

It is certain that no aspect of 
fly fishing is as enjoyable- as 
those which have a good, firmly- 
based. and well established 
myth or two to keep us company. 
We do not wish to believe 
otherwise than that an east wind 
will blow the fly out of the fish's 
month, that thunder puts ihe 
fish down, that heavy rain, light 
rain, a poor light on the water, 
especially' during the time of rfte 
fnl! moon, art ail to our dis- 
advantage. 

It would be a sad day that 
restrained us. on arrival at 'the 
river, getting out of the c& 
shading our eyes, looking at the 
sky. examining the water, 
watching whether cows are graz- 
ing with their heads to the wind, 
their hacks to the wind, or lying 
down, and delivering a solemn 
and deeply considered opinion 
on the prospects. 

The mythology extends wider. 
It is rampant among ghillies and 
water-keepers, especially Scot- 
tish ghillies. There are those 
who believe that lly hooks must 
never be sharp< and those «*ho 
believe they most never be 
anything else; and those who 
believe (hat a small single is tut 
infallible hooker of big salmon 
and those who will have nothing 
w baferer to do w ifh them: and as 
for the partem of fiv there are as 
many opinions as there are stars 
in the galaxies. 

Those who write books on 
fishing, or those who write the 
publicity for them, must he 
aware of a farther hazard. .If is 
all very well claiming to have 
swept away some of the mylhs of 
fishing, but the process nec- 
essary to do so will certainly 
create new ones. ; -

THE TIMES FRIDAY MARCH 14 1986 


RACING: RECORD POST-WAR FESTIVAL CROWD SEE POPULAR IRISH MARE COMPLETE DOUBLE OF CHAMPION HURDLE AND GOLD CUP 


Dawn Run — first lady of Cheltenham 


A gladiatoral salute of tri- 
■ umph by John O'Neill at the 
winning post in the 1986 Tote 
Cheltenham Gold Cup an- 
: nounced to the ecstatic thou- 
. sands of watchers that Dawn 
Run had become the first 
horse to land the double of the 
Champion Hurdle and the 
Blue Riband of 
steeplechasing. 

“She made several mis- 
takes. but I can’t remember 
•where or when. I thought we 
were beat at the last but she 
picked up again on the run-in. 
She’s got so much guts. That 
was the happiest moment of 
my lire," said the jockey. 

After both the 33-year-old 
former champion and 
Charmian Hill, the 67-year- 
old owner of the favourite, 
had been lifted high in the air 
by a band of jubilant Irish 
supporters, O'Neill scofTed at 
the thought of retirement. “If 
'Dawn Run comes back here 
..for the next three Gold Cups. 
I’ll be with her," he said with 
his infectious chuckle. 

Nor did the crowd forget 
Tony Mullins, the trainer's 
son, who has ridden Dawn 
Run to several big race wins 
but who was replaced on this 
occasion because of O'Neill's 
greater experience. The Irish 
jockey was also carried round 
' .the unsaddling enclosure to 
roars of encouragement from 
the serried ranks of spectators. 

That dauntless feather- 
weight. Mrs Hill, who was 
banned from race riding by 
the Irish Turf authorities at 
. jfie age of 63. readied the heart 
’ Of the matter and explained 
; the reason for one or the most 
famous victories in the history 
; of the winter game, when she 
said afterwards: “1 had a 
marvellous view but thought 
we were done for at the last. 
'.Not only is she courageous, 
she also stays so well." 

And at the end of the day it 
was Dawn Run's bottomless 


By Michael Seely 


stamina that foiled the brave 
efforts of both Wayward Lad 
and Forgive 'n' Forget in that 
dramatic battle up the endless 
final hill. 

Dawn Run just lives for 
racing. The early front-run- 
ning duel between the 
favourite and Run And Skip 
had the crowd on tiptoe with 
excitement as they passed the 
stand with a circuit still to 
travel. 

The final pattern of the race 
took shape at the fourth fence 
from home when Dawn Run 
made the last of her several 
errors. Run And Skip went for 
home, followed by Dawn Run, 
Wayward Lad. Forgive 'n' 
Forget and Righihand Man. 

O'Neil! drove Dawn Run 
back into the lead at the 
second last But as the runners 
raced for the final jump. 
Graham Bradley unleashed 
the burst of finishing speed 
that had already won Way- 
ward Lad three King George 
VI Chases. Forgive 'n' Forget 
was also launching a strong 
attack under pressure on the 
outside of this pair. 

A noted bearded Irish punt- 
er. who had placed £28.000 on 
Wayward Lad at 10-1. took 
two drags on his cigarette as 
the northern challenger went 
clear halftoay up the run-in. 
But as O'Neill forced the 
favourite back in front to win 
by a length with Forgive ’n’ 
Forget finishing 2 1 /* lengths 
away third, he gently trod on 
the butt and said: "That's 
racing for you." 

Run And Skip finished 
fourth, followed by Righihand 
Man and Observe. Combs 
Ditch was out of the race when 
he was hampered and pulled 
up after the fourth fence from 
home. Von Trappe, 
Cybrandian and Earls Brig 
also failed to complete the 
course.

runner-up. said: “At least no 
one can say that Wayward Lad 
doesn't like Cheltenham any 
more." Bradley was even 
more emphatic. “If Wayward 
Lad had been able to have a 
race between today and the 
King George, he would have 
won by three lengthsrdaimed 
the jockey. 

Jimmy Fitzgerald, the train- 
er of Forgive ’o' Forget, was 
philosophical in defeaL “I've 
no complaints. We were beat- 
en by a better horse,” he 
admitted. 

Dawn Run will travel over 
to Liverpool for the 
WhUbreqd Gold Label Cup. 
“She's only eight and has got a 
lot of racing life in her yet,” 
concluded a jubilant Mrs Hill. 
With £247,344 to her credit in 

Canio can 
outstay 
his rivals 

By Mandarin 

Canio, who has taken well to 
chasing, can vindicate the de- 
cision of his trainer. Ron 
Hodges, to miss the National 
Hunt Festival by winning ir.c- 
BMW Series Qualifier at 
Lingfield Park this afternoon. 

With. Canio having already 
won the Coral Golden Hurdle 
Final at Cheltenham two years 
ago. Hodges must have been 
tempted to saddle him for 
yesterday’s Sun Alliance Chase, 
despite his inexperience over 
fences. 

However. Hodges took him 
out of that htghly-compeiitive 
event at the overnight- stage to 
wait for this comparatively easy 
race and that move should pay 
dividends both in terms of 
today's prize and the nine-year- 
old's future. 

Canio made his chasing debut 
at Ling fie Id's mid^January 
meeting and jumped well to 
finish third to Oregon Trail, the 
subsequent Arkle Trophy win- 
ner. over a distance much 100 
short for him. 

.4 week later, at Taunton. 
Canio reaped the benefit of that 
Lingfield outing when again 
jumping wdl and outstaying a 
fair field over three miles and a 
furlong — a much mote suitable 
trip for him. His stamina should 
again prove decisive this after- 
noon. 

Ulan Bator is a far better 
horse than his recent farm 
figures suggest and should make 
up into a fair chaser in time. 
However, even if he puts in a 
clear round today 1 would not 
fancy him to beat Canio over 
. this distance. 

Fred Winter. Ulan Bator's 
j trainer, should enjoy better luck i 
! in the first division of the 
Newleaf Novices' Hurdle with 
Youngster, who has run with 
promise in better company on 
both his hurdling starts. 

Youngster won three races on 
the Flat for Peter Walwyn last 
year and shaped well on his 
hurdling debut behind The 
Footman at Chepstow in 
December. He failed to stay 2 Vi 
miles in Ibn MajerTs race at 
.Ascot in January but the return 
to two miles and the less testing 
opposition should enable 
Youngster to get off the mark at 
the principal expense of Fib. 

Nicky Henderson, who trains 
Fib. saddles Amhall in the 
second division and he seems 
sure to improve on his promis- 
ing debut when ninth to Brunico 
at Sandown Park. However. 
.Amhall finished some way be- 
hind Owen's Pride (fourth) in 
that race and I expect the form 
to be confirmed. 

Henderson should fare better 
at Wolverhampton where he 
could win both divisions of the 
Marston Novices' Hurdle with 
Baby Sigh and Broken Wing. I 
am particularly sweet on the 
chance of Baby Sigh, who won 
firsi time out on the Flat in 1 984 
when trained by Mark Prescott. 

Baby Sigh would have repre- 
sented the stable in yesterday's 
Triumph Hurdle but the freeze 
prevented Henderson getting a 
run into him and he was 
eliminated at the overnight 
stage. He has schooled excep- 
tionally well over hurdles and is 
napped to beat some modest 
opponents. 

Philip Mitchell's runners at 
Fa ken ham always ment respect 
and he should take the first two 
races there with Billion Boy and 
Longcross- Mitchell runs 
Garfuitkcl in the SwafTham 
Handicap Chase but this useful 
novice may find the course 
specialist. Prince Carlton, a 
tough nut to crack. 

Another trainer with bright 
prospects of landing a double at 
Fakcnham is Peter Davis who 
has made two useful ac- 
quisitions from Josh Gifford's 
yard in Spiders Well (3 IS) and 
Streamliner (3.45).

Geaning up. the motor indus- 
oy is going to run. up a bill of 
seveaal millions of pounds 
■over the next few years,: This 
has nothing to do with dis- 
counting or dodgy dealerships, 
but is the amount being put 
mur reducing exhaust emis- 
sion levels to what is regarded 
as socially acceptable. 

TO* recent outcries from 
oology groups have not been 
the starting point, for the 
industry has been at work on 
the problem for many years. 
As a result, today's new car 
creates less than half , the 
atmospheric pollution than its 
counterpart in 1970. The diffi- 
culty is that opposing factors 
are involved. On the one hand 
. is the laudable cry for clean air 
and bn the other i$ the 
indu stry's Quest for ever more 
economical cars coupled with 
the demand for value for 
money; the owner can anpro- 

ciale' a decent sunroof or 
turbocharging, but is hardly 
lured by a pricy catalytic' 
converter. 

The .situation is further 
complicated by different 
countries making different de- 
mands to meet different stan- 
dards. In Europe, regulations 
have been implemented with a 
programme of staged controls 
which now include diesel en- 
gined cars. Since October 
1984, new petrol engined cars 
have emitted 70 per cent less 
carbon monoxide and SO per 
cent less hydrocarbons and 
oxides of nitrogen than previ- 
ously. ft is proposed that these 
respective figures would come 
down .to a level of 20 per cent ._ 
and 26 per cent for 1989/91. In 
Britain, all new - vehicles will 
have to be capable of r unning 
on unleaded petrol by 1 990 at 
the latest and the EEC is 
calling for unleaded petrol to 
be available in all member 
countries by 1989. 

Just how these actual emis- 
sions are controlled is being 
tackled in two ways. The . 
original, course adopted in 
America following the Los 
Angeles smog problem was to 
add a catalytic converter to 
clean the exhaust gases before 
their release: European efforts 
have been directed towards 
more efficient engines which 
prevent the problem rather 
than cure it. This ‘lean bum* 
technology is now used in 
production cars running on a 
weaker petrol/air mixture 
which is burned more effi- 
ciently. 

From the car buyer's view- 
point, lean-bum is for the. 
better course; because it im- 
proves fuel consumption by 
anything up to 20 per cent 
whereas a convener is not

THE TIMES FRIDAY MARCH 14 1986 


29 — 




jgsi 





. Fiat Regata 'Weekend, estate: 
has a detrimental effect on fuel 


’ consumption. It is estimated 
that, in Europe, the addition' 
of a catalytic converter would 
increase the basic mice of the 
car by £400 to £500 regardless 
of size and that would also be 
reflected in higher car tax and 

vat. ■ 


proving to be an expensive 
task for the motor industry, 
few will dispute its necessity 
and put in perspective . in 
Ford's case, the latest £6.5 
million investment at Dumon 
is .modest against the total 
investment of £1.35 billion 
which the company in- 
vested in Britain since 1980. 

Road Test 


While the natural inclina- 
tion, of manufacturers is to go 
for lean-bum rather than con- 
voters, they. are having to ffiaf 
maintain a foil technical pro- A iai 
gramme that caters for both' 
courses. This is seen in 


the 

latest .addition to the- Ford 
vehicle emission laboratory at 
Dutton, Essex; which was 
opened- last week by Mr 
William Waldegrave, Minister 
of State for the Environment. 

The centre is responsible for 
exhaust emission research and 
all certification testing for 
Ford cars and commercial 
vehicles bwh in Europe and 
this £6.5 million extension 
raises the. capacity by SO per 
cent while improving the con- 
tent and precision of the tests 
involved. 

A total of 1 1 test cells, each a 
laboratory capable of taking a 
vehicle and its test equipment, 
is now available with a garage 
and support , facilities. Mea- 
surements’ of emission levels 
of any vehide.using a catalyst 
or lean burp equipment can be 
taken. 

Indicative of the rate of 
development is . the updating 
of the atmospheric test cell 
which was only built in' 1984, 
but has now bees re-equipped 
to the latest catalyst test level 
Here, engineers can investi-

Looking at 
lishfir 


the sleek and 
stylish fines of the Fiat Regata 
Weekend 100 Super estate, 
one is hard put to relate it 
directly with the Sirada hatch- 
back, now much improved 
but still the final - fling of the 
unlamented era of Torinese 
eccentricity. 

It is a practical load carrier 
allied to a high standard of 
comfort and equipment The 
performance is good by estate 
standards and the handling 
generally surefooted, though 
the power steering felt a little 
light at spied on the M 6 in a 
crosswind, but it was blowing 
hard. 

Fiat tackled the Regala 
from the family viewpoint 
rather than looking at it as a 
saloon stretched into a van 
with windows. As a result, it 
avoids that feeling of compro- 
mise and being slightly sec- 
ond-class. It looks well 
coordinated, with black plas- 
tic bumpers and sills accentu- 
ating its length. 

The high seating position 
gives a very good all-round 
view at the slight cost to a tall 


Comfortable alt-rounder. 

which produces a healthy 
1 OObhp. This is allied to a five- 
speed gearbox, the sligl 
ponderous action of which 
could be mainly attributed to 
its very low mileage. 

Creature comforts on the 
Super include electrically op- 
erated front windows, central 
door locking, a stereo 
radio/cassette player which 
hides sensibly under a lid 
when not in use, adjustable 
steering column and full doth 
trim.' 

- The load deck is the impor- 
tant part of any estate and the 
Regata shows up weU, with a 
maximum interior length of 
63.8in, width of 50in-38in 
between wheelarches - and a

the way in which the lower

useful extra deck length or a

A sliding and tilting glass

find the electronic beating and

Marti Caine; Sporting Chance, 
<» BBC 2, 9.00pm 


• A late-night ch!8 falls over BBC 
tonightNot your two-a-penny 
horrors from the bottom ot the 
Hammer barrel, but a chiller of 
exceptional quality. Once seenjt 
can never be forgotten. THE 
NIGHT OF THE HUNTER 
(11.45pm) was Chartes 
Laughton's one and only 
directing assignment Hew. you 
wffiask yourself, tfid he get to 
team the tricks of toe trade at 
one stroke? How else but by 
watching many masters at work 
behind me cameras white he was 
to from of them for nearly a 
quarter of a century, acting 
everybody else off the screen. 

• Not much else to recommend 
on television tonight with the 
exception of heat four of ONE 
MAN AND HIS DOG (BBC 2. 
930pm) followed by the retom of 
Ludovic Kennedy in DID YOU 
SEE...7 (1 0.1 0), so let me point 


.CHOICE- 


ahead to the weekend and 
recommend Sunday night's 
Screen Two film BLQOO HUNT 
(BBC 2 . 10.10). adapted by 
Stewart Conn from Neil Gunn's 
novel. Outwardly just the story of 
how a murderer on the run is 
helped by a Scots femter.ttos is 
actually a complex study of 
loyalty and the lengths to which 
some men will go to repay old 
debts. Superbly photographed in 
the Scottish Highlands by Stuart 
Wyktand most impressively 
acted by Andrew Keir as the 
protective termer. 

• Weekend radio 
highlights: Marking the night 100 
years ago, that Leeds saw 
the first performance of 
Suffvan's oratorio THE 
GOLDEN LEGEND, comes a live 


transmission of the work 
from the same city (Saturday. 
Radio 3. 730pm). We hear the 
music by which Sullivan said he 
wanted to be remembered. 
Nowadays.it is all but 
forgotten -Sunday night 
(Radio 4.9.00pm) brings episode 
two of RB Amos’S 
dramatization of Manzoni’s / 
Promessi SppSi, THE 
BETROTHED. The translation 
tenderizes me 17th century 
sufficiently with the juices of the 
twentieth to allow us to 
swallow the rich, red meat 

without choking on it It is, of 

course, a great novel, and there 
are occasional reminders of 
its power m the narration, which 
that veteran broadcaster 
Richard Bebb handles with 
consummate skilL 

Peter Davalle.

Exploration on two fronts pushes back the vast barrier of space 


TV 


From Christopher Walker 
Moscow 

The oonnal secrecy which 
surrounds the launching of 
Soviet space missions was 
lifted yesterday when Soviet 
television broke into regular 
programmes to give live cover- 
age of the lift-off of a flight by 
two cosmonauts to the new- 
giant orbiting space station. 
Mir (Peace). 

The relaxed and meticulous- 
ly executed launch of the 
rocket propelling the two men 
iuto orbit on board their Soyuz 
TI5 craft provided a stark 
contrast to the disaster which 
recently befell the US space 
programme when seven astro- 
nauts were killed in the Chal- 
lenger. 

Western scientists de- 
scribed the decision to televise 
yesterday's launch as a reflec- 
tion of growing confidence 
among the heads of the Soviet 
space programme which has 
recently notched up some no- 
table achievements. One of its 
main goals is a manned flight 
to Mars bv the end of the 
1990s. 

Two of the Soviet Lmon s 
most experienced cosmonauts, 
Leonid Kirim. aged 44. and 
Madimir Solovyov, were cho- 
sen for yesterday’s mission 
which will be the first attempt 
to pot men on board Mir since 
its spectactnlar launch on 
February 20. Both cosmonauts 
were part of the three-man 
Soviet team which set the 
world space endurance record 
in 1984 by remaining in space 
for 238 days. 

Yesterday's launch from the 
Baikonur Space Centre in 
Central Asia was the first time 
that a lift-off has been broad- 
cast live here since the US- 
Soviet Apollo-Soyuz link up in 
1975 . The Soviet film, which 
was also beamed to the US by 
satellite, showed the two cos- 
monauts inside their craft as it 
sped into orbit and earlier 
joking with their controllers. 

According to Tass. their 
craft is due to link up with Mir 
tomorrow. The ambitions plan 
was described by Soviet offi- 
cials as bringing much closer 
the dav w hen the Soviet Union 
will have a permanently- 
manned station in space. 

Mir set new standards of 
comfort for cosmonauts with 
individual sleeping compart- 
ments and armchairs for the 
crew of 12-

By Thomson Prentice 
Science Correspondent 


The planned dose encounter 
last night between Halley's 
Comet and the European sat- 
ellite Giotto, some 93 million 
miles from Earth, represented 
the. climax of two extraordi- 
nary space odysseys. 

The first recorded observa- 
tion of the comet was in 130L It 
was seen again in 1531. 1607 
and 1682, leading Edmund 
Halley, the English scientist, 
to deduce its 76-year orbit 
The 9ft-tali European Space 
Agency satellite was launched 
from Karoo. French Guiana, 
on July 2. 1985, on its oght- 
raonth journey to the comet 
The comet's appearance 685 
years ago was recorded in a 
fresco, “The Adoration of the 
MagT. by Giotto Bond one, 
the artist after whom the 
sate llite is Today's 

Giotto will capture its image 
with a camera only 310 miles 
from the nucleus. 

RpHin signals travelling at 
the speed of light will take 
more than eight minutes to 
reach the ESA centre in 
Darmstadt Germany. 

The pictures are expected to 
reveal some of Halley's mys- 
teries. Two leading astrono- 
mers in Britain, Professor Sir 
Fred Hoyle and Professor 
Chandra Wickramasingbe, 
believe they may even disclose 
a lindens in several fragments. 

If so, scientists may have to 
abandon the theory that com- 
ets consist of frozen sub- 
stances and solid dust 
particles. 

The encounter will be brief. 
The satellite will have only a 
few boors for its observations 
Giotto's journey will then 
essentially be over. But for the 
comet the odyssey may be 
endless. 

• DARMSTADT: European 
scientists guiding Giotto say 
the chances are better than 80 
per cent that the gamble will 
succeed (AP reports). 

“All systems are function- 
ing perfectly and according to 
schedule,” Herr Rudiger 
Reinhard, the chief project 
scientist, said last night 

• TOKYO: A Japanese 
space-craft sent to probe solar 
winds has discovered radio 
waves emitted from around the 
comet the Ed notation Minis- 
try said yesterday (Renter 
reports).
