Mr Nigel Lawson, will 
present an extremely buoyant 
picture of Britain's economic 
prospects in his Budget speech 
tomorrow. 

The sharp fall in oil prices, 
while removing his scope for 
large net tax. cuts, carries 
substantial, longer-term bene-

The Treasury’s forecast is 
expected to . show inflation

economy continuing at atom

The second is to aim at

Early poll projections in the 
French general election yester- 
day suggested that right-wing 
parties could win an absolute 
National Assembly majority 
by the narrowest of margins. 

Shortly after the polls 
dosed, the Ministry of the 
Interior gave a provisional 
turnout figure of 81 per cent, 
well above the 70 per cent of 
the 1981 general election. 

Projections based on polls 
of voters after polling gave the 
centre-right UDF and Gaullist 
RPR parties 42-43 per cent, 
which would translate to just 
the 289 seats required for an 
absolute majority. 

They can expect, however, 
to see good returns from the 
22 seats in overseas depar- 
temems and territories not 
included in the leaving polls, 
as well as some 6-8 seats from 
smaller right-wing parties. 

The UDF and RPR have 
refused to consider any alli- 
ance with the extreme right 
National Front, which is ex- 
pected to win 9-1 1 per cent 

This is a significant success 
for the party, which three 
years ago rarely took more 
than 2 per cent, but can now 
expept to enter the National 
Assembly for the first lime 
with some 35 deputies. 

The Socialists are projected 
to lake 30-3 1 per cent That is 
wefl below the exceptional 37 
percent in 1981, but will make 
them the biggest single party 
with about 210 seats. 

The main losers seem to be 
the Communists, who are 
expected to take only 10-11 
per cent of the vote.

MP who named doctor in 
child abuse case accused 


By Richard Evans, LobbyReporter 


Mr Geoffrey Dickens, the 
MP who last week used parlia- 
mentary privilege to name a 
doctor alleged to have raped a 
TSiri aged S, was lad night 
accused of “disgraceful arid 
irresponsible” bebaviow fay a 
Conservative colleague who 
first raised the case. 

- Mr Norman St John- 
Steras, MP for Chelmsford 
ami a former Leader of the 
Commons, plans to write to 
Mr Dickens today to officially 
complain about his conduct 

But last night an unrepen- 
tant Mr Dickens said it was 
his duty to name the doctor, 
and disclosed that he planned 
to name a vicar in the Com- 
mons this afternoon who is 
alleged to have committed sex 
offences involving children. 

The mother of the girl 
allegedly raped by the doctor 
went to see Mr St-John- 
Stevas in his constitntency last 
month. The MP subsequently 
wrote to the police and to the 
Director of Public Prosecu- 
tions. 


“Mr Dickens has behaved 
qmte disgracefully- This was, 
■as for as . I ms concerned, a 
highly confidential surgery 
case, - ” Mr St Joim-Stevas 
said. 

It is an unwritten rule, 
strictly observed at Westmin- 
ster, that an MP should never 
become involved in other MPs 
constituency business without 
first consulting them. "He 
never consulted me in any way. 
He should have come and seen 
me,” Mr St John-Stevas said. 

“It is very irresponsible 
because we don't know wheth- 
er he is guilty or not and one 
does not know the other effects 
this will have.” 

Mr Dickens, MP for 
Iittleboroogh and Saddle- 
worth, said: “I didn't choose to 
name the doctor until Norman 
had been extensively quoted as 
saying he could take the case 
no f rnther. I then decided to 
take it further. I only did it 
after a lot of heart searching.” 

Mr Dickens said he planned 
to name the vicar during

Holy Family with St Elizabeth 
and St John” is thought to 
fate from about 1500. Like the 
“Adoration'*, it was originally 
painted in tempera o n line n, a 
technique much favoured by 
Mantegna when he "was work- 
jiffig ai ihe court «f Mantua 
towards the end of his life. 

However, the original frag-

Sotheby's have decided not

ing before the auction. It will 
thus be np to bidders to decide

Sotheby's are talking of a 
price to the range of £400,000- 
£600,000 asa result, and not to 
millions. 


A photograph of the paint- 
ing was first sent to Mr Eric 
Turqoin, head of Sotheby's 
Old Master department last 
year. It was in Marseilles and 
had been inherited by tbe 
unde of a friend of his in a 
family division 10 years ago. 

MrTnrqmn was immediate- 
ly interested and the Paris 
representative of Sotheby’s 
travelled to Marseilles mid 
came back with tbe picture. It 
had been valued to 1909 by a 
local expert who had attribut- 
ed it to the school of Mantegna 
but described it as “restored 
by vandals'*. 

Then began a long period of 
investigation and discussion. 
Tbe painting has been brought 
to London with a temporary 
export licence from France 
and passed as a Mantegna by 
Philip Pouucey, a leading 
expert who works for 


Sotheby's. It has also spent a 
fortnight with Mr Herbert 
Lank, a highly regarded re- 
storer in London, who bas 
prepared a three-page condi- 
tion report on it 

Mr Tnrqnto intends to pub- 
lish the report so that potential 
buyers can assess their 
chances of recovering the 
painting. 

Mr Lank has cleaned a tiny 
area of paint at the side of the 
picture to reveal the original 
tempera below. “Much of the 
repaint covers quite well pre- 
served original paint " he 
says. 

The painting is scheduled 
for sale by Sotheby's in Monte 
Carlo on June 22. It will 
require an export licence to 
leave France but (he Louvre 
already possesses an excep- 
tional range of paintings by

The Prime Minister will tell 
Lord King of Wanna by, chair- 
man of British Airways, today 
that she will not reverse the 
decision to delay privatization 
of the state airline and will not 
support his attempts to put 
together a management buy- 
OUL 

Lord King, whose buy-out 
plan came to light on Friday 
after the decision of Mr Nich- 
olas Ridley, Secretary of State 
for Transport, to delay tbe 
sell-off indefinitely, was grant- 
ed an urgent meeting with Mrs 
Thatcher today. She is, how- 
ever, certain to stand by her 
minister while repeating her 
belief that the airline should 
be sold quickly and to as wide 
a cross-section of shareholders 
as possible. 

A Downing Street spokes- 
man said yesterday; “I see no 
sign of Lord King having 
anything to put to her that will 
change her mind.” 

Lord King, once widely 
regarded as one of the Prime 
Minister’s favourite business- 
men, will probably repeat his 
view to Mrs Thatcher that as a 
result of the derision to delay, 
the buy-out plan is the only 
way to achieve quick and 
successful privatization. 

British Airways declined to 
give details of the buy-out 
proposal yesterday but did not 
deny that initially the plan 
would be to raise up to £350 
million through the sale of 51 
per cent of the company to 
employees and City institu- 
tions under a scheme drawn 
up by Phillips & Drew, the 
stockbrokers. A spokesman 
said that no bid for the airline 
had vet been made. 

Lord King will go from his 
meeting with Mrs Thatcher to 
a presentation to City brokers 
and analysts at the Glaziers’ 
Hall in London at which the 
full details of the scheme will 
be disclosed. The presentation 
was arranged some time ago 
and long before Mr Ridley's 
announcement 

In particular, Lord King is 
expected to play down the 
concern of the Government 


over the Bermuda Two negoti- 
ations with the United States 
on North Atlantic routes, bui 
this and other factors have 
persuaded Mr Ridley and the 
Prime Minister that privatiza- 
tion at the moment is too 
risky. 

Weekend reports emphasiz- 
ing the personality clash be- 
tween Lord King and Mr 
Ridley produced an angry 
response from British Air- 
ways. 

“We are very annoyed at the 
way this is being personalized. 
We think that the Govern- 
ment is committed to privati- 
zation and we also are 
committed and we think that 
it is only fair that all proposals 
are looked aL" 

The buy-out scheme, be- 
lieved to have won consider- 
able initial City support- 
despite the £450 million of 
debt on the British Airways 
balance sheet, is understood to 
have been masterminded 
largely by Mr Gordon Dun- 
lop. British Airways' finance 
director. It envisages that the 
35.000 workers and manage- 
ment would subscribe about 
£35 million and that the 
remaining 49 per cent of the 
airline would be sold early 
next year. 

One senior manager at Brit- 
ish Airways said yesterday 
that junior and middle level 
management probably would 
support a buy-out ’ but at 
senior level ibe plan was not 
well received. In recent times, 
he said, top management had 
been instructed to “keep the 
lid on" sensitive and possibly 
troublesome issues in an at- 
tempt to smooth the path for 
privatization. 

Problems such as dealing 
with an across-the-board pay 
demand of up to 25 per cent 
from pilots and cabin crews, 
and ihe huge expense of 
investigating and repairing the 
structural defects that have 
been discovered on some 747 
aircraft were also believed to 
have played a part in Mr 
Ridleys decision, he said.

The Ministry’s attitude has 
incurred the wrath of many 
people in the trade who main- 
tain that not only is it politi- 
cally unacceptable to sell 
cheap butter to countries such 
as the Soviet Union and Libya 
while denying it to British 
citizens, but it is also more 
expensive. 

In the latest issue of The 
Grocer , Mr John Brown,

dy on the proposed sales to 
Russian housewives will 
amount to more than £ 2,000 a

discount for old-age pension- 
ers would have cost only £800

Opponents of the change 
include the National Federa- 
tion of Women's Institutes, 
the Child Poverty Action 
Group and the Government’s 
own Social Security Advisory 
Committee who argued that 
the chief purpose oftte bene- 
fit is to provide help for 
chldren. 

Putting it m the pay packet 
could mean less money for 
children in families where the 
husband does not tell the wife 
how much he earns and alone 
decides how much money the 
wife gets from his pay, the 
committee argued. 

Mr Norman Fowler, Secre- 
tary of State for Social Ser- 
vices, argues that paying the 
money through the pay packet 
is a 'small gesture towards 
integrating tax and benefits. 
However, opponents of the 
scheme suspect the real mo- 
tive is to use social security 
money apparently to boost 
take-home pay in low-paid 
jobs and thus to encourage 
family men to take them. 

Employers, particularly the 
smaller ones, have opposed 
the scheme, and the Social 
Security Advisory Committee 
has argued that the change 
might lead to greater problems 
for claimants in obtaining 
help to which they are enti- 
tled. 

Meanwhile, six leading dis- 
ability organizations are to ask 
Mr Fowler to delay changes to 
social security which they 
believe will leave some of the 
most severely disabled people 
in Britain worse off. 


Court action over tape tax 

By Bill Johnstone, Technolog}' Correspondent 


— British and European tape 
m> manufac turers are preparing 
{, to fight in court governments 
£ which impose levies on blank 
| audio and video tape, a move 
e which they consider to be 
g unfair, a breach of European 
n law and a novel form of 
| consumer tax. 
v After Easter the British 
l Government is due to publish 
e a White Paper on copyright 


and manufacture in Europe, 
including the Americans and 
the Japanese, is uniting to 
fight what it believes is 
misguided bureacracv. 

It is currently taking legal 
advice on how best to chal- 
lenge in court the imposition 
of a levy. 

The council’s challenge will 
accuse the governments of an

sition of aids or levies. 

The British Cabinet has 
been divided on the issue and 
ministers fear that the con- 
sumer. who will pay the levy, 
will consider it to be a new 
purchase tax. That fear has 
delayed for three months the 
publication of the White Pa- 
per and probably the drop- 
ping. for the moment, of the 
original proposal to impose a 
levy on Wank video tapes. 


mend no levy on video tape 
« but a 10 per cent surcharge on 
__ audio tapes. 

The British and European 
_ tape manufacturers fear that 
nr such a UK levy will influence 
? the EEC in adopting it as 
Community policy and will be 
j the first step towards impos- 
w ing other and higher levies.

to government on the subject 
The logic on which the 
British government’s pro- 
posed levy is based is being 
challenged by the tape manu- 
facturers. They are attempting 
to make the same challenge in 
France and West Germany 
The tape levy has long been 
proposed by the British Pho- 
nographic Industry, represent- 
ing the music industry, which 
claims that home taping has 
cost its members sales. 

That assumption is chal- 
lenged by the tape suppliers. 
Thev say it has been alleged 
that’ 230 million album 
tapings take place each year. 
“This is the equivalent of 
every LP sold in 1984 being 
taped over four times."

Legal tests open on school 
‘voluntary duties’ rules 

By Lucy Hodges, Education Correspondent 

Lords, and they will have a 


Important test cases open 
today at the High Court in 
London which are expected to 
decide whether it is a volun- 
tary or contractual duty for 
teachers to cover lessons for 
colleagues who are off sick. 

The four cases are being 
watched with close attention 
by the local authority employ- 
ers and the teachers* unions, 
and the hearings are likely to 
last for up to eight days. 

At present the legal situa- 
tion is not clear, with the local 
authorities maintaining that 
cover for absent colleagues is 
an implied term of a teacher’s 
contract, against union claims 
that it is a voluntary duty. 

Authorities have widely dif- 
fering arrangements and until 
the 1985 teachers' pay dispute 
teachers covered for two, three 
or sometimes for five days 
when one of their colleagues 
was off sick. 

The cases are being brought 
by the National Union of 
Teachers, against four local 
authorities, Solihull, Rother- 
ham, Doncaster and Croydon, 
two of which are Labour- 
controlled, and two Conserva- 
tive. 

The NUT is claiming that 
the authorities acted unlawful- 


ly last year in deducting pay 
from teachers who refused to 
cover. They did that as part of 
the pay dispute. 

For the management, 
teachers* refusal to cover has 
meant whole classes of chil- 
dren having to be sent home 
and the work of the s chool 
being seriously disrupted- If 
the employers lose, it could 
mean they are forced to 
employ an army of supply 
teachers to plug the gap at 
great cost to themselves and 
the ratepayers. 

For the teachers, cover for 
absent colleagues means miss- 
ing a free period reserved for 
marking or preparation of 
lessons. It means taking a class 
they do not know for no extra 
pay. 

The local authorities, two of 
which ^fe represented today 
by Mr Anthony Lester, QC, 
will be arguing that because 
coyer is eonttactoal thededuo 
tioos were correct. The NUT 
will contend that teachers 
should not have to teach 
lessons for which they are not 
timetabled. 

The cases are expected logo 
all the way to the Court of 
Appeal and the House of 


bearing on the present talks on 
pay and conditions in foe 
inquiry by the conciliation 
service Acas. being conducted 
under Sir John Wood. 

Whichever side wins in the 
High Court is expected to gain 
a significant advantage in 
those talks on the question of 
cover. 

• Teachers are continuing 
their industrial action at 
Brighton Hill School in 
Basingstoke, Hampshire, in 
spite of foe settlement agreed 
by other unions and foe local 
authority employers. 

Members of foe National 
Union of Teachers and the 
National Association of 
Schoolmasters/Union of 
Women Teachers are continu- 
ing with their refusal to do 
duties they consider volun- 
tary, such as cover for absent 
colleague^ and participation 
in parent or staff meetings out 
of school hours or in dubs and 
sports. 

• Some Kent teac h ers are to, 
continue their pay dispute in 
spite of last week’s national 
settlement, saying their good- 
will must be earned before 
they return to normal duties.

Message 
from vicar 
gives joy 

A congregation's tears 
turned to smBes of joy as they 
listened to a recorded message 
from their vicar who is recov- 
ering after an attack on him at 
his home in west London. 

“Big Brother is watching 
you from foe vicarage," the 
vicar told about 400 people 
who packed his church. They 
included his daughter, who 
was raped during the attack, 
and another man who was also 
attacked and is recovering 
from a fractured sknlL 

In his message, foe vicar, 
who returned to his vicarage 
on Friday after hospital treat- 
ment, told foe congregation: “1 
am still weak, I have lost a 
stone." 

He said that he would be 
going away for “a break" 
tomorrow, “to try to mend my 
head with vinegar and brown 
paper". 

He also told his congrega- 
tion: “I cannot begin to ex- 
press what yoar love, gifts, 
care and prayers have given to 
me and my family." 


British scientists 
sought by Japan 

By Bill Johnstone, Technology Correspondent 

British scientific talent is redirected from an annual 

research budget of about £360 


reportedly being wooed by the 
Japanese to take part in a 
multimillion pound world re- 
search programme which 
could rival any work conduct- 
ed by the Americans in their 
Star Wars project. 

But any British ambitions 
could be thwarted by foe 
Government's reluctance to 
fond scientific research on a 
large scale. 

The Government is already 
embarrassed by foe new Euro- 
pean research programme. Eu- 
reka. launched only a year ago 
by foe French and deemed to 
be foe non-military European 
alternative to the Star Wars 
programme. It is meant to 
encourage European compa- 
nies to collaborate in foe 
research and development of 
commercial products. 

The Government said that 
it is prepared to pay “up to 50 
per cent" towards the research 
bill of some Eureka pro- 
grammes but it has created no 
new funds and resources are 


million. 

Last week the Japanese were 
believed to be trying to per- 
suade the authorities in Brit- 
ain, other EEC members and 
the United States to join 
forces in research into ad- 
vanced computers, alternative 
sources and new food- 


Tbe heads of government of 
the principal industrial na- 
tions of the West are due to 
meet in Tokyo in May when 
foe research would be expect- 
ed to be raised. 

The first European electron- 
ics products, spawned from 
the Eureka research pro- 
gramme. will be launched in 
about two years’ time, it was 
disclosed last week. The in- 
vestment by British compa- 
nies or foe Government has 
not been disclosed but 26 
projects ranging in value from 
£1 million to more than £70 
million have been launched. 


Pledge to 
halt flow 
of heroin 

President Zia of Pakistan 
yesterday promised to halt the 
flow of heroin from his coun- 
try to the West. 

In an interview on British 
television he said that his 
government was committed to 
eliminating the growth of 
opium poppies from which 
heroin is made.

President Zia, interviewed 
in Islamabad for Channel 4’s

there was opposition within 
the Pakistan parliament to 
wiping out the poppy fields. 

“A lot of the House is in 
favour of foe poppy growers 
but foe Government stance is 
in favour of taking all actions 
for removing poppy growth 
altogether,” he sain. 

President Zia said that he 
would like to convey his 
gratitude to the Mrs 
Thatcher’s government, say- 
ing that there was close co-

Fifteen were charged with

man suffered conclusion, a

said five demonstrators were 
taken to hospital with minor 
head injuries. 

The demonstration became 
violent when protesters tore 
down a 40-yard section of 
fencing and hnxied crash barri- 
ers at foe police. The plant is 
also guarded by razor wire. 

Although distribution of 
both The Sunday Times and

delayed by lorries being held 
up inside the plant, foe com- 
pany said it had printed

• The Electrical, Electronic

whose members are employed 
at foe Wapping plant, is to 
submit a paper to a TUC 
conference on Wednesday, ar- 
guing that there is no place for 
mass pickets in modem indus- 
trial disputes. 

Their presence is an indica- 
tion that the onion has failed 
to win fall support, it says. 

The paper calls for pickets 
to be limited to 15 at each 
gate. At the same tune the 
police should be given a 
statutory right to stop vehicles 
entering or leaving so that 
there can be a peaceful ex- 
change of views between driv- 
ers and pickets. 

The right to picket should 
not be limited to an 
employee’s own place of work. 


Stakes are high in battle of Tillingham Hall 


By Christopher Wannan, Property Correspondent 

Tillingham HalL a 79fl-acre believes that on present fore- 
casts there will be a shortage 
of 250,000 new homes in the 
region by I99L Other esti- 
mates of demand by the Gov- 
ernment and conservationists 
are tower. 

The Government is in the 
difficult position of wanting to 
let the private sector get on 
with the job of providing 
homes where people want to 
buy them, while retaining the 
loyalty of its supporters in foe 
Home Counties. 

Last summer, 34 Conserva- 
tive MPs in the south of 
England, led by Mr Jerry 
Wiggin, MP for Weston-su- 
per-Mare, wrote to the Prime 
Minister warning her that the 
“countryside and rural envi- 
ronment in our constituencies 
is bring seriously threatened 
by excessive development". 

Mrs Thatcher replied, 
pointing oat that it was the 
Government’s policy to re- 
move unnecessary constraints 
on private enterprise and to 
encourage new house building 
for owner occupation. “It is not 
part of our policy to direct 


farm near Thurrock, Essex, is 
the subject of a planning 
inquiry, starting tomorrow, 
which could determine the size 
and shape of house budding in 
the South-east for the next 
decade. 

Consortium Developments, 

a grouping of nine of Britain’s 
largest house builders, includ- 
ing Barrett and Wimpey , are 
proposing to bnild a new town 
of some 5,000 homes for 14,000 
people in the middle of the 
previously sacrosanct Loudon 
green belt 

The group plans to build up 
to 15 new towns of similar size 
to Tillingham Hall and is 
hoping to announce the site of 
its second town, in Hampshire, 
in the next fortnight, to be 
followed by a third in the 
summer. 

At the centre of the inquiry, 
expected to last seven weeks, 
is the level of development 
necessary by toe end of the 
century to house foe predicted 
population. Consortium De- 
velopments. supported by the 
House Builders Federation, 



where people shall live or 
where firms set up or expand,” 
she said. 

Opposition to the 
Tiltingham Hall proposal is 
strong. “By choosing this site 
on the inner edge of London's 
green belt, foe builders hare 
thrown down a gauntlet to 
green belt policies right 
around London, and indeed 
throughout the country," the 
Council for the Protection of 
Rural England said. 

The Town and Country 
Planning Association fa also 




firmly opposed to the plan, 
largely because of its impact 
on the green belt and foe loss 
of agricultural land. 

Mr Kenneth Baker, Secre- 
tary of State for toe Environ- 
ment, has been consistent in 
his defence of the green belt, 
telling the increasingly bewil- 
dered house builders that they 
should concentrate on small 
“in-fill" developments and 
abandon brge-sade estates in 
order to make them more 
palatable. 

However, ra January, Mr 
Baker surprised both conser- 
vationists and Consortium De- 
velopments by granting 
permission for . a development 
on green belt land in the West 
Midlands. 

The case of Tillingham Hall 
is likely to be different Soot 
after the consortium's pb- is 
were announced last May, a 
rival development was put 
forward by Mr Owen Luder, a 
former president of the Royal 
Institute of British Architects, 
proposing that 5,000 new 
homes be built on rec&Uned 
chalk pits at Grays, Essex. 
Both Thurrock council and 


Essex County Council wel- 
comed the proposal with such 
rapidity that it suggested they 
had found a suitable alterna- 
tive to T illingham Hall, tins 
enabling them to avoid the 
charge of prev en t ing the con- 
struction of needed homes. 

* Consortium Devefopnu 
has gained a strong ally with 
the recent appointment of 
Lord Northfietd, the chairman 
of Telford Development Cor- 
poration, as its chairman. 

A respected member of the 
environment lobby, he said: 
“We most face the fact foot 
the arithmetic of housing 
needs; the solution to t te 
problems of east inraer cities 
and foe need to bnild proper 
communities rather than fast 
more big estates,- means tint 
we have got to use 
agricultural land. ' 

“I want to see it. done 
properly. The concept of new 
country towns, with .foe em- 
phasis on quality, sensitivity 
to the environment, their inti- 
mate scale and sense oT bal- 
ance, appeals to me as an 
eminently practical 

approach." 

V 


South ‘a 
high-cost 
ghetto’ 

The South-east fa becoming 
a high-cost ghetto, with house 
prices and a cost of living that 
tower above the rest of the 
country, and the gap is widen- 
ing at 'an alarming rate, ac- 
cording to a survey published . 
today. 

The report, from Reward 
Regional Surveys, which is 
based in Stafford, says: “The 
message for companies is ' 
drar. Relocating employees to 
foe South-east and particular- 
ly to London is a very 
expensive business." 

House prices divide -the 
country into “two nations". 
The national average price for 
a forte-bedroom semi-de- 
tached house is £35.900 but in 
Yorkshire it is as low as 
£26.850. 

In the Southeast, however, 
the average is £46.375. rising, 
to £63.425 in foe Greater 
London area. 

The rejfort adds: "The poor 
beleaguered first-time buyer 
must wonder what te has . 
done to deserve such an' 
impossible position-just to 
get on foe bottom rung of the 
ladder."

tra&ng if only half the shops 
m Britain opened under lhe 
terms of. the Shops Bill, ac- 
cording to a report published 
today. 

Longer.. weekday trading 
hours, -also: predicted- lit -the 
Biu, could swell .the number of 
“latch-key” children who were 
unsupervised for long periods, 
the independent Family Poli-

It estimated that if half of all 
shops were to open on Sun- 
days, 350,000 shop workers 
would be needed. They would 
include 94,300 mothers with a 
total of 169,740 children un- 
der 16, and . 34,776 fethcrs 
with 62,597 children below 
that age. 

As a result 232337 children

Sunday. “The family Sunday 
might never be thesame again

Hypnotics 
' ‘safe for

By Onr Social Services

Benzodiazepine sleeping 
tablets, now available only on 
prescription, should be avail- 
able over the counter to help 
the nation to get a good night’s 
sleep, a specialist in the study 
of sleep has suggested. 

“Many people keep a few 
sleeping pals at home for the 
odd occasion when experience 
suggests that the day’s events 
will cause a troubled night," 
Professor Ian Oswald, profes- 
sor of psychiatry at Edinburgh 
University, says in a leading 
article in the British Medical 
Journal 

“Today’s hypnotics are safe 
and are as much modem 
facilities as, telephones or 
videos.**' When any adult is 
free to buy a bottle iff voffka. 
Professor Oswald says, “I do 
not see why short-acting 
benzodiazepine hypnotics 
should not be simflariy avail- 
able in Britain”. Doctors need 
not always be the nnennediar- 
ies.

J children in 
dentists’ 
pay study 

By Nicholas Timmins 
Social Services 
Correspondent 

Almost, 200,000 children 
aged under 16 are to take part 
in a national study that could 
lead to a new system of paying 
dentists. It would encourage 
them to preserve teeth and 
prevent decay rather than be 
paid for filling or restoring 
rotten teeth. - 
-The Department of Health 
has agreed. to go ahead with a 
study, due to start in July, 
involving 1.000 dentists w 
eight parts of Britain: Half will 
be paid a flat Tate for looking 
after the children’s teeth, rath- 
er than the item-of-sexvice fees 
for each examination, filling, 
crown' or other treatment 
which the other 500 dentists 
will receive. 

The experiment follows a 
successful trial with 50 den- 
tists, and criticism that the 
present system of paying den- 
tists encourages over-treat- 
ment, foils to reward efforts to 
prevent disease, and is open to 
abuse. 

Advocates of capitation fees 
for dentists believe that the 
system coukl, in the long run, 
be adopted for adults as well 
as children, but proof that it 
works is needed first 
‘The study will cost 
£360,000 and run until 1988. 
the effect of the two payment 
systems on the health of the 
children’s teeth wfll he com- 
pared, together with the effect 
on dentists' income, and on 
whether they over-treat or do 
too little. 

Critics of the present ar- 
rangements argue that because 
dentists are paid a small fee 
only for examination and 
advice, and higher fees for 
treating the results of decay, 
there is little or no incentive, 
other than good professional 
behaviour, to spend time 
leaching good dental hygiene 
and trying to prevent decay. 

Critics of proposed capita- 
tion fees say that they could 
lead to “supervised neglect”, 
encouraging dentists to cany 
out the absolute minimum of 
treatment necessary to elimi- 
nate pain and discomfort, 
while still receiving the annual 
fee for less work than was 
really necessary. 


Longer-trading hours could 
give opportunities for fathers 
U) become more involved in 
child care and would enable 
some couples to adjust their 
working hours so that at least 
one parent was available' to 
care for the children. 

Many teenagers work in 
shops- on Saturdays and “Sat- 
urday jobs” would probably 
become “weekend jobs",- the 
report said. While many teen- 
agers would welcome the extra 
pocket money, it could reduce 
time spent whh the family in 
adolescent years and would 
give them less time to study at 
a critical stage in. their educa- 
tion. 

Longer trading hours would 
bring risks, especially for 
women and young people, of 
working unsocial hours and 
travelling to and from work 
alone, often on inadequate 
public transport ‘ 

Miss Melanie Heriwood, co- 
author of the report said: “It 
is vital that the family interest 
(in the Bill) is-debated fully.”

Rail cuts leave 


users 


By Michael Baily, Transport Editin' 



British Rail passengers are 
suffering serious overcrowd- 
ing as the railways cut back on 
rolling slock to meet govern- 
ment financial targeis. 

On the east coast main line, 
where some of the busiest 
trains run from. York and 
Edinburgh to King's Cross, 
London, first-class passengers 
are forced regularly, to stand 
from as for as Peterborough, 
nearly 80 miles oul . . 

In the southern region, the 
Brighton, Portsmouth and 
Chatham lines are reported to 
be among the worst, while 
Peterborough, Southend, and 
Cambridge in the east, and 
Oxford and DidcoL in the 
west, are also notoriously bad. 

On these and other routes in 
Wales, Scotland and the north 
of England, overcrowding oc- 
curs particularly at peak peri- 
ods such as school holidays, 
weekends and for exhibitions 
of sporting events. 

lie latest surge in over- 
crowding has been caused 
partly by the success of British 
Rail marketing initiatives, in- 
cluding several cut-price ticket 
offers, and a big reduction in 
rolling stock to meet govern- 
ment financial targets. 

London commuter services 
are to lose 500 coaches in the 
next five years, but the biggest 
squeeze will be fell on inter- 
city routes where British Rail 
is trying to cut heavy mainte- 
nance costs by rationalizing 
services and reducing the fleet. 

Between 1981 and 1984, the 


inter-city coach fleet was cut 
by 40 per cent from 4,000 to 
2,500 and British Rail has now 
embarked on a programme to 
transform its current £230 
million operating loss to a £36 
million profit by 1989. 

Mr Christopher Groome, an 
economist who commutes by 
inter-city from Kettering, 
Northamptonshire, to Lon- 
don, is spokesman for the 
Kettering Rail Users 
Associatio n. “British Rail tell 
us that to achieve financial 
targets they have to cm rolling 
stock costs. Meanwhile, they 
have to bring supply and 
demand into balance, which 
presumably means raising 
feres to price people off 
trains," he said. 

“We are very hurt and 
angry. Many people have en- 
tered into commitments as to 
jots, homes, and children's 
education. They say that by 
1987-88 they plan to reduce 
train sets from 12 to 10 which 
wfll cause very bad over- 
crowding.” 

British Rail admits it will 
have to fight hard to meet a 25 
per cent cut in government 
support for passenger services 
by next year: But it claims that 
overcrowding is under control 
with only three in every LOCK) 
passengers, or 6,000 a day, 
forced to stand. 

A new scheme to allow 
families to reserve up to four 
second-class seats for £1 is also 
being planned in an effort to 
beat the problem.

Prince Andrew presenting a trophy to Morten Frost, from Denmark, winner of the men's singles final at the All-England 
open badminton championships at Wembley yesterday (Photograph : John Voos). Tournament report : page 32 

Prince plays it single at badminton 


A small crowd had gathered in 
the balmy midday sunshine yes- 
terday by a back entrance of the 
Wembley sports complex, venae 
of the British badminton 
championship (Alan Hamilton 
writes). 

Word spread from the photog- 
raphers on who was expected. The 
question was whether they were 
going to photograph one subject or 
two. 

At 11-50 a sOvery-green Jaguar 
swept up to the door. There was a 
matter of disappointment from the 
cameramen who could see through 
the windscreen that there was no 


woman inside. 

The driver got out and wiped an 
imaginary crease from his dark 
blue snitch,’’ said a woman 
behind the barrier as though she 
had been expecting someone en- 
tirely different “It’s Prince 
Andrew.” 

The Prince quickly shook 
hands with his badminton hosts, 
and disappeared through the door 
before members of the media 
ratpack could bowl him any 
question concerning Miss Sarah 
Ferguson. 

Speculation on the relationship 
between the Prince and Miss 


Ferguson, fuelled by the Qneen’s 
return from Australia on Friday, 
became ever more fevered during 
the weekend, with some com- 
mentators claiming with apparent 
cast-iron assurance that an 
announcement would be made 
today. 

Miss Ferguson, however, who 
has become adept at handling the 
media in full battle cry, succeeded 
in keeping a low profile. 

She was last seen being driven 
at high speed by her father in a red 
BMW car from their home at 
Dnmmer, Hampshire, to an un- 
known destination. 


Togetherness ends class-ridden works canteen 


By Edward Townsend 

The image of Britain’s class- 
ridden works canteen serving 
stodgy food to the workers 
while the bosses eat in board- 
room splendour, has finally 
been laid to rest, according to 
the Industrial Society. 

Its latest survey of works 
catering, published today. 


shows that most companies 
now have one restaurant 
where the di rectors, office staff 
and shop floor workers regu- 
larly eat together. 

The division now is be- 
tween the eating habits of the 
office and the shop floor, with 
secretaries and clerks prefer- 
ring to buy meals, while the 
reverse is the case in the 


factory, the society says. 

The survey covers 480 ca- 
tering operations and 680 
dining rooms in factories and 
offices throughout Britain, 
and indicates that 58 out of 
every 100 workers eat in- 
house. 

In the Midlands and the 
South, snacks appear to be 
growing in popularity, while 


in the North and Scotland 
most people still prefer a

don, workers drink twice as 
many cups of vended tea and

Gene clue 
in baby 
disease 
tests 

By Thomson Prentice 
Science Correspondent 

Scientists are close to find- 
ing the gene responsible for 
cystic fibrosis, the incurable 
disease with which ai least one 
baby is bora every day in 
Britain: 

The discovery could lead to 
the development of tests to 
identify the two million or 
more carriers of the abnormal 
gene, a report published today 
by the Office of Health Eco- 
nomics says. 

Routine tests to diagnose 
the disease in an unborn child 
could also follow, allowing 
parents to opt for termination 
of pregnancy, the report says. 

About one person in 20 
carries the cystic fibrosis gene, 
and when it is present in both 
parents, there is a one in four 
chance that each offspring will 
inherit the disease. 

Children with the gene 
suffer from recurrent Tung 
infections and from thick 
mucus in the lungs and other 
organs. Fewer than 25 per cent 
survive into their 30s. The 
precise biochemical fault that 
causes the condition is still 
unknown, and there is no 
known cure. 

However, researchers, at St 
Mary's Hospital. Paddington, 
and others in Denmark, Cana- 
da and the United States, have 
found located the defective 
me in human chromosomes. 
Hood samples were taken 
from more than 200 children 
with thegene to follow the 
inheritance of the condition. 

“This discovery has raised 
new hopes and represents a 
significant breakthrough.” the 
report says, “it is hoped one 
consequence will be the devel- ■ 
opment of new tests to identi- ‘ 
< y the two million or so 
carriers of the gene." 

The report says less than 
half of cystic fibrosis patients 
in Britain are being treated at a 
total of 16 specialist centres 
despite evidence that such 
centres can be responsible for 
substantial improvements in ; 
both quality and length of life, 
when compared with the out- 
come achieved in non-special- 
isl sellings.

Many thousands of the 21.667 companies 
which foiled last year went down simply because 
their customers did. 

The truth is that bad debts aren't just 
frustrating and damaging. They can and do kill. 

£5000 BAP DEBT = £100,000 LOST TURNOVER 

For example, if you make 5'o pre-tax profit 
on turnover, writing off a bad debt of only 
£5000 means that you have to find and service 
£100,000 of extra business just to repay the loss. 

Obviously, it's no more sensible to leave your

lethal risk tlian to leave your premises uninsured

Suspended jail terms 
for young offenders 
would be ‘bad mistake’ 


New move 
to change 
law on 


child care 


Bv Patricia Gongh 


The introduction of sus- 
pended jail sentences for 
young offenders would be a 
‘‘serious mistake”, with more, 
not fewer, young people end- 
ing up in prison. 

The warning is given today 
bv the National .Association 
for the Care and Resettlement 
of Offenders (Nacro) in a 
paper sent to the Home Office 
to help with its review of the 
issue. 

Courts have had the power 
to suspend jail sentences in 
full since 1 96S. and to suspend 
them partially since 1981 But 
that has been denied to of- 
fenders aged under 21 since 
I9S3. when imprisonment for 
that age group was abolished 
and replaced by the youth 
custody scheme. 

In its paper, the association 
says: “Eighteen years* experi- 


ence of the suspended prison 
sentence illustrates all too 
clearly the likely results of 
introducing suspended sen- 
tences for young people”. 

Courts had misused the 
power by imposing suspended 
sentences on offenders they 
would not normally have sent 
to prison. One third of such 
sentences were later activated 
with the result that offenders 
who would not otherwise have 
been imprisoned ended in jail. 

Moreover, magistrates bad 
consistently imposed longer 
sentences when suspending 
them than when sending of- 
fenders directly to jail As a 
result those that were eventu- 
ally enforced were longer. 

In 1984. the association 
says, only 16 per cent of 
suspended prison sentences 
were less than one month. 


compared with 32 per cent of 
non-suspended sentences. 
Since suspended sentences 


were abolished for young 
adults, they had been replaced 
mainly by non -custodial pen- 
alties, "demonstrating that sus- 
pended sentences were not 
being used for their original 
purpose, which was keeping 
young people out of prison. 

The association concludes: 
“The overwhelming weight of 
evidence suggests that the 
introduction of suspended or 
partly suspended sentences for 
young offenders would lead to 
an increase in the number of 
young people entering penal 
establishments. 

“We hope, therefore, that 
the Home Office will decide 
against including provisions 
to this effect in the forthcom- 
ing Criminal Justice BilL” 


Sports study A level introduced 


A new coarse leading to the 
first GCE A-level examination 
in sports studies will be avail- 
able at 25 schools and colleges 
throughout Britain from Sep- 
tember. 

Candidates, who are being 
limited to 300 initially, will 
not. however, need to be good 
at playing sport. 

Mr John Day. secretary 
general of the .Associated Ex- 


amining Board, said there 
would be no practical tesL The 
courses would be academic, 
concentrating on the technical 
analysis of sport and the 
demands made on the per- 
former by different sports. 

The scientific knowledge 
related to performance would 
also be considered- 

“The scientific and socio- 
loeical effects of an emerging 


sports-cum-leisure industry 
pose new demands of know- 
ledge and management skills,’* 
Mr Dav said. 

“This A level will go some 
way towards preparing young 
people for these new chal- 
lenges. either as direct en- 
trants to the industry or higher 
education.” 

The first examination will 
be in 1988. 


Correspondent 

A Conservative MP will 
make a second attempt this 
week to change the law to 
provide legal safeguards 
against child abuse, in spite of 
government opposition to his 
measure. 

Mr Dennis Walters. Conser- 
vative MP for Westbnry, has 
modified substantially his Pri- 
vate Member's Bin under 
which the approval of magis- 
trates would be needed before 
a child in local authority: care 
could be returned to its par- 
ents. 

Hie Biff has already had a 
second reading but the Gov- 
ernment has made dear that it 
will block the measure as it 
stands.Tbe Bill will reach the 
committee stage on Wednes- 
day. 

The changes are, first, that- 
the restriction he proposes oh 
re turning children to the par 
rental borne will now apply 
only in cases of ill-treatment 
and neglecL 

Second, within that catego- 
ry, the court's approval will be 
required only where the mag- 
istrates who make the original 
order direct that the child 
roust be brought back before it 
is returned to its parents. 

Mr Walters said his aim is 
to ensure that the decision is 
not left entirely to toe discre- 
tion of social workers.

own hands Pd puD out her 
eyes.” She mined to toe 
assorted media urging them to 
report the truth about “wee 
Ulster” and toe feelings of 
loyalists. 


The d ea l with Pnbh n has 

confirmed their worst suspi- 
cions. It has JjWJJj 
nationalism and toe ***** m 
ultimate toyafty- to Ujjjg. 
their heritage and everything 
they have worked ttrachievc- 
As provincial outsiders tlury 
are suspicious of supposedly 
sophisticated metropolitan 
ways and are indignant dat 
after 17 years of ^hc 
troubles”, a Thatcher govern- 
ment should, as they believe, 
start to deliver them to toeir 
old southern enemy. 


Before toe speeches were 
finished on toe 24-hour day of 
action, hundreds of people 
went on a rampage through 
aty streets smashing windows 
and burning care. One loyalist 
later raised a band in tire air, 
saying of the day when there 
was violence, intimidation 
and modi of industry al a 
stan dstill: “It was great. We 
showed them.” - ■ 


Manv of those involved in 
the day of anion believe that 
the intimidation and violence 
got them noticed al Westtmn- 

iter and are wiflingfor a longer 
performance. They see toe 
agreement as evidence that 
violence pays and that it is the 
only* thmg to which toe Gov- 
ernment wifi listen. 


But another woman high- 
lighted toe divirion that 
emerged in unionist r ank s. 
She sakfc “Ulster says no. 

w n . « ml 


Ulster says no to being made 
to look fools by these people 
That was just thuapy and I 
want no more of it." 


Four months after toe sign- 
ing of the Anglo-Irish agree- 
ment, loyalist opposition 
remains implacable. The Gov- 
ernment has lost the propa- 
ganda batfie: there is no 
middle ground. The feeling of 
distrust and betrayal by Brit- 
ain runs across toe unionist 
co mm unity. From toe middle- 
class suburbs to working-dass 
strongholds, the antipathy to 
gjving Dublin a role in the 
North’s affairs is enormous. 


Increasing militant action 
minst the Government, al- 
Bedto ihe feeling that Britain 
can never be trusted, has 
inevitably led to talks on some 
form of independence. Many 
people suspect that toe young 
recruits to Mr Ian Paisley's 
DUP are inclined to this end 
after ail-out confrontations 
with toe Government and the 
humiliation of Mrs Thatcher. 

But despite a growing loyal- 
ist nationalism there remain 
doubts by many, particularly 
in toe industrial sector which 
would be in the forefront of a 
battle to bring . about toe 
agreement's collapse. 

■ Sources dose to the 1986 
Workers' Committee are un- 


sure about most people's reac- 
tion to any talks or breaking 
the link with Britain. They are 
not sure if there would be 
wholehearted ^support for a 
complete industrial stoppage 
and are anxious not to be used 
by ambitious politicians. 

One loyalist said: “It's ail 
very well talking about being 
prepared to eat grass but you 
can bet the workers would be 
eating it before the politicians. 
They’re jiot going to kid us 
this time:” . 

And with Ulster heavily 
dependent on the British ex- 
chequer for nuuntainance of 
its standard of living, many 
loyalist leaders suspect unions 
ists would refuse to go down 
the independence road. 

Tomorrow: Signals of 
compromise. 


The sense of shock that has 
engulfed unionism has been 
made worse by toe belief that 
Mis Thatcher was their one 
Jroe friend in.. the Cabinet. 
Unionism has always had a 
schizophrenic . attitude to- 
wards Britain, uncertain of 
where its ultimate laydiy lay:

radio plan hazards 


By David Hewsoo 

Arts Correspondent 

Community radio groups 
have written to toe Home 
Secretary to protest about toe 
delay in setting up a netwcuk 
of stations across Britain. 


A Home Office-appointed 1 
committee started yetting ap- , 
plications for the experimen- j 
tal licences before Christmas i 
and had hoped to announce 
the awards last month. But the 
Home Office has said that it is 
still unable to indicate when 
toe new franchises will be 
made public. 

The Community Radio As- 
sociation complained ' that 
there was deep anxiety about 
the delay in announcing the 
experimental licences and 
called for toe choices to be 


made public as soon as possi- 
ble. It wants some of the 
stations to be given to ethnic 
groups who would run them 
specifically for their commu- 
nities. 

The association said that it 
acknowledged the particular 
discrimination suffered by 
Britain’s Mack communities 
when compared with other 
socially disadvantaged groups. 

It supported their demands 
“to be served by individual 
stations as a particularly ap- 
propriate way in which com- 
munity radio could bope to 
meet their expressed and rec- 
ognized needs and diversity". .

Envoy has 
hope for 
Beirut 


-•■*--• 1 ' ■«_ . 31 ; 


should bring reforms hostages 

w—P From Diana Geddes 




A few days before . the 
controversial Congress vote 
on Ameriran funds for the 

Nicaraguan Owtras, a con- 
grcstooa] delegation visiting 
Managua has . concluded that 
support for President 
Reagan’s proposed miHtaiy 
aid for die rebels js necessary 
“to bring about internal 

change'” in Nicaragua 

It would also hdp “to 
pressure'’ the leftist Sandinista 
Government to negotiate with 
the Contras. 

NineRepuWican 1 congress- 
men, as well as deleg at e s from 
flu; State Department. De- 
fence- Department, and the 
White House, .left Managua 
over the weekend after a 20- 
hour visit which, they 
“strengthened . the viewpoint 
that Nicaragua is a 
‘communist', ‘tyrannical’ 
state” '.. ' 

Referring to President 
Reagan’s statement on Friday, 
Congressman David Drier of 
California said: “If be called 
them skunks, if he refers to 
himself as a Contra, then 
absolutely this is- the kfari of 
pressure that needs to be' 
applied. I support him on that 
100 per cent”# 

In interviews, the congress- 
men appeared to contradict 
the reports of Western diplo- 
mats and international human 
rights groups who say atroc- 


Front John Carlin, Managua 
ides are committed in roughly 
equal proportions by both 

sides in the Ni caraguan avjl 

war. “In fact, the violations of 
tire Contras pale next to those 
of the Sandinista 
Government,** one said. 

The delegation met mem- 
bers of the political opposi- 
tion, the Roman rathniy 
Chinch and. local human 
rights workers. 

They also raw the Nicara- 
. guan . Vice-President. Senor 
Sergio Ramirez, who told 

President Onega of Nicaragua 


of having “lost his senses* in 
riaim'm g that he hunseff felt 
like a Contra. “It is dangeroos 
if the head of a superpower has 
lost his reason,” President 
Ortega told a press conference 
-in Stockholm. - 

them flatly thattheonly thing 
his Government would nego- 
tiate with the Contras would 
be the terms of their surren- 
der. 

The Sandinistas themselves 
are convinced Washington is 
interested not in negotiations 
but in their destruction. . 

Asked how the US was able 
to justify keeping up diplo- 
matic relations with Nicara- 
gua in the light of President 
Reagan's virtual declarations 


. of war, one congressman said 
that it was “very reasonable 
for us to do so”, as it might 
help “bring about a form of 
democratic pluralism in this 
country” 

When asked to explain this 
apparent anomaly last year, a 
senior American official in 
Washington said an embassy 
offered the US an excellent 
“intelligence platform” inside 
Nicaragua. The truth of that 
was demonstrated last week 
with (he Sandinistas* exposure 
—to the embarrassment of the 
US Embassy — of four alleged 
CIA agents working as diplo- 
mats. 

• TEGUCIGALPA: The 
Costa Rican President-elect,. 
Senor Oscar Arias Sanchez, 
said yesterday the Nicaraguan 
Government would be dem- 
onstrating “intransigence” if it 
did not agree to a dialogue 
with the Contras, as recom- 
mended in a new regional 
peace plan (Reuter reports). 

Speaking at a news confer- 
ence after a three-hour meet- 
ing with President Azcona of 
Honduras, Sefior Arias said 
that Costa Rica, Guatemala. 
Honduras and El Salvador 
had agreed to support a new 
peace plan drawn up by 
President Jose Napoleon 
Duarte of El Salvador.

French hostages held in Bei-

would now be possible. 

In conversations with the 
kidnappers he had noted a 
“favourable development” in 
theft attitude. For the first 
p'mp, the pro-Iranian I slamic 
Jihad had been prepared to 
make concessions on all theft 
demands. He felt they wanted 
ta bling the affair to a dose. 

They had appeared ready to 
accept tile French proposals, 
provided they were backed by 
Syrian and Iranian guaran- 
tees, be said. He declined to 
give details of the proposals, 
except to say that they were 
centred on the release of five 
men jailed in France in con- 
nection with the attempted 
murder of Mr Shah pour 
Bakhtiar, the former Iranian 
Prime Minister, in 1980. 

He also said the kidnappers 
had expressed e desire for an 
“opening up of French policy 
towards Iran” and France's

Fears of 
violence 
grow in 
Sabah 

From M.G.G. Pfllai 
Kuala Lumpur 

The Malaysian Govern- 
ment sent additional police 
units over the weekend to 
Sabah state, East Malaysia, 
where a political crisis threat- 
ens to spill over into a 
confrontation between Mus- 
lim and Christian groups. 

Yesterday morning the state 
capital of Kota Kinabalu was 
ringed by police road blocks 
and the situation was tense 
with residents expecting more 
demonstrations from the 
main opposition political par- 

ty- 

The opposition United Sa- 
bah National Organization 
sees the confrontation as a 
“last ditch” fight for Islam. It 
organized two demonstrations 
last week. 

The authorities in Kuala 
Lumpur are worried by the 
latest bout of tension in Sabah 
which could fen anti-federal 
feelings. 

In the past two weeks more 
than IS bombs exploded in 
the state, injuring more than 
20 and killing at least two 
people. 

Kuala Lumpur has declined 
all comment. The Prime Min- 
ister, Datuk Seri Dr Mahathir 
Mohamed, is due to visit 
Sabah next month. But there 
is a growing view in both 
Kuala Lumpur and Kota Kin- 
abalu that a state of emergency 
may be likely in Sabah. 


US coma 
ruling lets 
doctor end 
treatment 

New Orleans (Reuter) - 
Doctors in the United States 
have been given the go-ahead 
by their ruling body to with- 
hold treatment from comatose 
patients, provided they have 
the agreement of the patient’s 
family and meet any wishes he 
expressed before losing con- 
sciousness. 

The ruling was made at the 
weekend at a conference of the 
American Medical Associa- 
! lion's Council on Ethical and 
Judicial Affairs. It says it is 
now “ethical” to withhold 
food, water and medicine. 

It includes such “heroic" 
procedures as putting a coma- 
tose patient on a respirator 
when he experiences breathing 
difficulties, and covers those 
who are not in immediate 
danger of dying. 

If a patient's condition “is 
beyond doubt irreversible, it is 
not unethical to discontinue 
all life-prolonging means of 
medical treatments", it says. 

Doctors can use the ruling 
as a defence if taken to court in 
cases where treatment has 
been withdrawn. 

The council chairman. Dr 
Nancy Dickey, said the deci- 
sion was expected to cause 
controversy. “We felt sure it 
would not be embraced with 
open arms by all people, but 
there is absolutely nothing in 
this dictating that a physician 
should act against his moral 
and ethical beliefs.”

follow-up 

flaggjng 

Stockholm — Soviet and 
American officials attending 
the funeral of Mr Olof Palme, 
have expressed dissatisfaction 
with developments since last 
year’s superpower summit be- 
tween President Rea g an and 
Mr Gorbachov (Christopher 
Mosey writes). 

After twohours of “candid” 
talks with Mr Nikolai 
Ryzhkov, the Soviet Prime 
Minister, Mr George Shultz, 
the United States' Secretary of 
State, aid “We were in 
agreement that the meetings 
between Mr Reagan and Mr 
Gorbachov continued to give 
a good baas for continued 
discussions”. 

The talks, held at the Soviet 
Embassy in Stockholm, went 
on for an hoar longer than' 
scheduled and were the first 
top-level discussions since the 
summit. 

No negotiations as such fad 
taken place. Mr Shultz said, 
and no derisions were taken 
on a possible follow-up sum- 
miL 

“We have had a very candid 
exchange of ideas across a 
broad spectrum of issues,” he 
said... 

The discussions had centred 
on the possibility ofa new ban 
on nuclear testing. Mr Shultz 
gave the Soviet Premier the 
text of President Reagan's 
latest offer to allow the Soviet 
Union to study the US system 
for monitoring an eventual 
test ban.

ARE YOU AT RISK FROM 


m 


S? 


AIDS is a serious disease . Not all the infor- 
mation available has been entirely accurate , so 
many people are confused about who is at risk , 
how the disease is spread and how dangerous it is. 

To explain the facts entirely, it is necessary to 
describe certain sexual practices. These may 
shock but should not offendyou as we are talking 
about an urgent medical problem. 

Please read this carefully. It is up-to-date and 
authoritative. It is only by knowing the true facts 
about AIDS that we can hope to control the 
spread of this disease. This requires an effort by 


all of us.

WHAT IS AIDS? 


AIDS stands for Acquired Immune 

Deficiency Syndrome. 

It is caused by a virus that attacks the 
body’s natural defence system. 

This is why some people who have 
the virus can fall prey to infections and 
other illnesses which rarely trouble 
healthy people. 

Not everyone who carries the virus 
develops AIDS. But, anyone who has 

the virus can pass it on. 

At present there is neither a vaccine 
to prevent people catching the virus 
nor a cure for those who develop 
AIDS.

Before the virus was discovered, 
there was a very small risk from blood 
transfusions. Now all blood donations 
are screened for the infection. Any 
blood found to be infected is rejected. 

The process of giving blood is not

Ik HOW IS AIDS SPREAD? 


In two ways. 

LI The virus spreads mostly through 
sexual intercourse with an infected 
person. 

Lit is also spread if an infected 
person’s blood gets into someone 
else’s blood. The major risk of this 
happening is to drug users who 
share needles or other equipment. 


U Babies of infected mothers are 
also at risk, in the womb, during 
birth, or from breast milk. 




What 


U Any sex between two people 
who are uninfected is completely 

safe. 


U Hugging, squeezing and feeling 
are all safe with anyone. 


what is 


U Sexual intercourse with an 
infected person is risky- 

U Using a sheath reduces the risk 
of AIDS and other diseases. 


U Rectal sex involves the highest 
risk and should be avoided. 


U Any act that damages the penis, 
vagina, anus or mouth is dangerous, 
particularly if it causes bleeding. 

U Intimate kissing with an infected 
person may be risky.

Doctors and scientists around, the 
world are searching urgently for a 
vaccine or cure. 


No-one can predict when this might 
be found, but it is almost certain it will 
take some time yet. 

But AIDS can be controlled by re- 
ducing the spread of infection. - 
These facts show how it can be 
done.

Injecting drug users , are at risk if 
they share needles or other equipment. 
By far the best solution is not to inject 
at all. Those who persist, should not 
share equipment. 

However, the major risk of infection 
is through sex. 

The more sexual partners someone 
has the more likely they are to have sex 
with an infected person. 

Cutting down on casual relationships 

cuts down the risk. 

The next line of defence is to know 
what is safe sexual practice and what 
is not.

However, it is at least as

have intended to cut the line

The Sri Lankan railways say 
that the damme to track and 
rolling stock will cost 600,000 
rupees (£15,000) to put right, 
but that' the train service 
should be back in order in two

reluctant to continue driving 
the train after such incidents, 
and there may be a Anther

overcome.

India signs Ecuador 
Westland shaken by 
agreement fighting 


Many thousands of blacks 
in South African townships 
defied the Government at the 
weekend as they buried vic- 
tims of the unrest under the 
banners of the African Nation- 
al Congress (ANC) and the 
hammer and sickle. 

Some minor clashes oc- 
curred between police and 
mourners, but for the most 
part the police kept watch 
from their armoured person- 
nel carriers as the crowds 
chanted ANO' slogans add 
listened to fiery speakers who 
ignored magisterial orders 
that only churchmen could 
address the funerals. 

At least 1 5,000 people gath- 
ered in Guguletu township 
outside Cape Town, where 
seven men — allegedly ANC 
guerrillas — were shot dead by 
police earlier this month. 

They were referred to as 
“martyrs who have fallen 
before the enemy bullet”. Mr 
Aubrey Makoena, leader of 
the Release Mandela Commit- 
tee. said those responsible for 
their deaths would one day 
“stand trial before a tribunal 
of the people for their crimes”. 

Only two foreign television 
crews and two stul photogra- 
phers were allowed into 
Guguletu under a “poor ar- 
rangement between the state 
and the media. 

At Orkney, 100 miles south- 
west of Johannesburg, crowds 


taunted a police video unit 
with chants of “Blacks will 
win with their AJC47s” as 
three men killed in Kanana 
township dashes were buried. 

A wooden replica of an 
AK47 — the Soviet-made 
Kalashnikov semi-automatic 
rifle — was buried with 
Tanduxdo Mbefoe, an ANC 
guerrilla shot by police in New 
Brighton township near Port 
Elizabeth. 

Police seized ANC flags 
from the coffins of two more 
unrest victims in Saulsville 
township hear Pretoria, where 
thousands of people defied 
magisterial orders that only 
200 mourners should attend 
and that the victims should be 
buried separately. 

Meanwhile, 14 people died 
in violence at gold mines near 
Johannesburg, and another 
two died in township violence, 
officials said yesterday. 

The Anglo American Cor- 
poration said seven mine 
workers were killed and 67 
others injured in tribal faction 
fighting at Vaal Reefs mine. 

Seven men died at Blyvoor- 
uitzicht mine when police and 
workers dashed after a strike 
over a new bonus scheme. 

In the black township of 
Joubenon, west of Johannes- 
burg. police said two men 
were killed when a crowd that 
had petrol-bombed police ve- 
hicles was dispersed.

Polish leaders answer 
protests over price 
rises in TV phone-in 


The Polish authorities have 
pushed up the price or many 
basic foodstuffs and alcohol 
from today in a move that has 
caused much bewilderment 
and irritation. 

The announcement of a 10 
per cent rise in vodka and 
other alcoholic beverages and 
8 per cent in staple foods such 
as bread, milk, butter and 
sugar came on the Saturday- 
night television news before a 
science fiction film with Kirk 
Douglas and Farah Fawceu. 

Poles were invited to phone 
in their protests to a panel of 
ministers after the film was 
over and. speaking live, each 
of the officials tried to explain 
the economic rationale and 
calm down the callers. 

Whether the Western 
phone-in device will defuse 
the anger can be judged only 
in the factories this week, as 
workers have a chance to 
discuss the price rises among 
themselves. 

The increases on individual 
food products do not amount 
to much - a loaf of bread will 
go up by two zlotys, a litre of 
milk by one zloty — though the 
overall impact on the food 
basket of those on fixed 
incomes, such as students and 


From Roger Boyes. Warsaw 
pensioners, will be significant. 

The average monthly salary 
is about 17,000 zlotys, or £S0, 
but there are many Poles, 
especially in the provinces, 
living on much less. 

Much of the anger over the 
weekend appeared to be di- 
rected at the way the price 
rises were announced, without 
the elaborate public discus- 
sion that has been practised 
over the pas: three years. 

Arbitrary price rises sparked 
off discontent several times in 
Polish postwar hisrorv. caus- 
ing street protests, helping to 
topple Communist Party lead- 
ers. and playing a pan in the 
birth of Solidarity, the 
nowbanned trade union. 

Rumours of impending 
rises were spread by shopkeep- 
ers over the past week urging 
their customers to buy extra 
bags of sugar, but the an- 
nouncement still came as a 
shock 

Solidarity advisers were in 
contact over the weekend and 
the union is expected to 
criticize sharply the manner in 
which the prices were in- 
creased and the inadequate 
compensation for the poor. 

At the turn of the year petrol 
prices were pushed up. as were 


rents and television licences. 
Last year baric foods were also 
made more expensive and the 
meat price, the most sensitive 
of all was increased in July. 
This year, said the authorities, 
meat will go up in August. 

It seems unlikely that Soli- 
darity will call for strikes: last 
year a strike call failed and 
discontent was expressed 
more through workers asking 
their managers for higher pay. 

The increase that hurts the 
worker most this time is the 1 0 
per cent increase on vodka. 
This will contribute signifi- 
cantly to the state budget but 
will probably also be a boon to 
the black market 

The vodka move is justified 
as part of an anti-alcoholism 
campaign that has gathered 
force throughout the Soviet 
bloc since Mr Mikhail 
Gorbachov became Kremlin 
leader. 

• Congress praise: General 
Jaruzelski. the Polish leader, 
in a speech to be published 
this week, praised the Soviet 
Communist Party congress for 
acknowledging that each East 
European ally must exist in its 
own “historically shaped, na- 
tional conditions’'. 


‘Ivan the 
Terrible’ 
complains 

Ramleta. Israel (Reuter) — 
Alleged Nazi war criminal 
John Derajanjuk, yesterday 
detained for a farther 13 days' 
1 questioning, hit back at his 
Israeli jailers saying he felt he 
was being held prisoner in the 
Soviet Union. 

Mr Demjanjuk, aged 65. 
accused of being the Treblinka 
\ guard known as "Ivan the 
Terrible" who operated the 
gas chambers in which thou- 
sands of Jews were kilted in 
Poland in the Second World 
War. was extradited from the 
United States two weeks ago. 

During his second remand 
hearing at Ramleh prison near 
Tel Aviv, the Ukrainian- bom 
retired car worker from Geve- 
land. Ohio, asked the court 
through his interpreter if he 
could "call home because he 
feels like he’s in the Soviet 
Union”. 


Vital bridge across tbe 
Nile falls to Museveni 

From Charles Harrison, Nairobi 


President Museveni’s Na- 
tional Resistance Army has 
taken the nonhem Ugandan 
town of Pakwach. capturing 
the only bridge linking the 
west Nile district with the rest 
of the country. 

The road and rail bridge 
across the Nile, north of Lake 
Albert, was taken undamaged 
and the NRA faced no signifi- 
cant opposition from fleeing 
troops of the former regime, 
driven from the capital of 
Kampala at the end of Janu- 
ary. 

Mr Museveni's force is now 
advancing into the west Nile 
district towards the Zaire and 
Sudan borders. Large num- 
bers of fleeing troops of the 
former Military Council re- 
gime come from this area, but 
have already fled to 
neighbouring countries or 
have abandoned their arms 


and gone to ground in their 
home villages. 

Most of northern Uganda is 
now controlled by Mr 
Museveni's Government, but 
the administrative machinery 
has yet to be restored. 

Mr Museveni has said his 
Government will seek the 
return of former Presidents Idi 
.Amin and Milton Obote, now 
in exile in Saudi Arabia and 
Zambia respectively, to an- 
swer for crimes committed 
while they were in power. 

• Police visit: A British police 
official has visited Uganda to 
identify new areas in which 
Britain can help the country's 
police force, officials said 
yesterday (Reuter reports). 

Mr John Reiland, overseas 
police adviser for the British 
Government, spent three days 
in Uganda meeting govern- 
ment ministers, judges and 
police chiefs. 


Mario tbe

From Christopher Thomas 
Albany, New York 

The excessive praise heaped 
upon every deed and utterance 
of Mr Mario Cuomo, the ill- 
tempered Democratic Gover- 
nor of New York, has brought 
despair to the state Republi- 
can Party. Even toe mistakes 
of this Italian immigrants* sou 
are looking good. 

He will walk his re-election 
this year, with 3 little help 
from a SlO million (£6J>

chest that has filled with

cans, to tfeeir immense embar- 
rassment, are still _ casting

Mario the Moderate has given

liberal reputation, has laid off 
thousands of state workers,

anti-crime measures than any 
governor in history. The liber- 
al label no longer fits. 

He has thereby alienated 
many New Yorkers who con- 
sidered themselves ius natural 
constituents, but in the state as 
a whole his popularity is 
overwhelming. Some of tbe 
most gushing adulation today 
comes from conservative quar- 
ters. 

He is on excellent terms 
with state Republicans, whose 
opposition is confounded by 
the lack of something to 
attack. The old Cuomo, the 
one who shook np the Demo- 
cratic national convention with 
his soaring liberalism, has 
vanished. Even budget battles 
are comparatively friendly af- 
fairs nowadays in Albany. 
Budgets are even produced on

Softly, softly plea to Britain on acid rain 


From Tony Samstag 
Oslo 

Norway has decided lo re- 
sume a “softly, softly" ap- 
proach to Britain in the long- 
standing dispute over the 
issue of scid rain. 

The spring thaw will be in 
evidence today as Mrs Rakel 
Suriien, the Norwegian Minis- 
ter of the Environment, begins 
a three-day visit to Britain, 


Ail the Nordic countries 
believe Britain is responsible 
for as much as a third of the 
acid deposit foiling in south- 
ern Scandinavia, lulling fish 
and most other aquatic life in 
thousands of lakes and rivers 
and possibly putting large 
areas of forest at risk. 

Emissions from coal and 
oil-burning power stations are 
blamed mostly, but Britain 
insists the case against acid 


rain in general, and its contri- 
bution in particular, is for 
from proven. 

The issue has become al- 
most fashionable since the 
Swedes first raised it in 197Z 
More than 20 nations have 
agreed to join the so-called 
“30 percent club", committed 
to reducing sulphur dioxide 
emissions by a thud, and

the time being. They noted 
that the only promising gleam 
of hope in efforts to stem the 
conflict was that neither side

modicum of leverage. 

The report also gives great 
encouragement to Iran, which 
is more traumatized by chemi-

of fighting in the war. Diplo-

Prospects brighten for better Sino-Soviet ties 

PpUlTtn /VL* - _ - _ 



Peking (Reuter) - China 
says prospects are bright for 
Sino-Soviet co-operation, but 
concrete steps are needed to 
improve relations. 

The Deputy Prime Minis- 
ter, Mr Li Peng, said at a 
banquet last night in honour 
of the Soviet First Deputy 
Prime Minister, Mr Ivan 
Arkhipov, that co-operation 
between their countries had 
great potential and bright 
prospects, the New China 
news agency reported. 

Mr Arkhipov, the most 


high-ranking Soviet politician 
to visit Peking since 1969, 
hailed the first meeting of the 
Sino-Soviet economic and 
trade commission he is at- 
tending as an important event 

Despite the warm tone of 
published excerpts from their 
speeches, both Mr Li and Mr 
Arkhipov referred to elements 
of defence and foreign policies 
that have strained relations. 

Mr Li praised the recent 
increase in trade — up 60 per 
cent last year, according to Mr 
Arkhipov — and other con- 


tacts, but said China hoped 
that obstacles to better rela- 
tions would be eliminated. 
China regularly lists three 
obstacles: Moscow's troops 
along the Sino-Soviet border, 
its forces in Afghanistan, and 
its backing for Vietnam in 
Cambodia. 

Mr Arkhipov indirectly re- 
plied to these concerns by 
quoting Mr Mikhail Gorba- 
chov, the Soviet leader, as 
saying better relations must 
not be at the expense of any 
third country. 


When Mr Gorbachov made 
this comment at the recent 
Communist Party congress, 
diplomats saw it as a clear 
indication that Moscow would 
not allow Peking to dictate 
Soviet policy in Afghanistan 
or Cambodia. 

Mr Arkhipov predicted 
smooth and fruitful negotia- 
tions at yesterday’s meeting of 
the new commission, which 
was set up under a long-term 
agreement comprising eco- 
nomic, trade, scientific and 
technological co-operation. 


Finland’s 
workers 
back after 
58 hours 

From Olli Kivinen 
Helsinki 

Finland's leading blue-col- 
lar trade union federation 
SAK ended its first major 
strike in 30 years after being 
out 58 hours. 

The strike ended late on 
Saturday with the acceptance 
of a two-year agreement giving 
a 2.4 per cent wage rise this 
year and another 2.6 per cent 
next year. It also included a 
promise to cut the working 
year by 8.5 days by 1990, 
bringing the average working 
week to 37.5 hours. 

The result was an important 
victory for SAK, enabling it to 
regain its position as the 
leading trade union, which 
had been threatened by the 
growth of while-collar unions 
as work moved from the 
traditional factory towards 
high-technology enterprise. 

It was generally agreed the' 
strike actually strengthened 
Finland's economic policies 
based on a broad consensus 
between the trade unions, the 
employers and the Govern- 
ment 

it began on Thursday al- 
most by accident as an agree- 
ment was very’ near, but the 
government and municipal- 
ities did not have time to 
accept it This gave the whole 
conflict an unreal atmosphere. 

The stoppage affected ev- 
eryday life very little. 


assistance to Kuwait 


Doha, Qatar (Reuter) - Mr 
Timothy Renton, Minister of 
State at the Foreign Office, 
said here yesterday that Brit- 
ain would extend military- 
help to Kuwait, if asked, 
should the Gulf war spill over 
into Kuwaiti territory. ' 

“We would consider such a 
request quickly and sym- 
pathetically,*’ he said. 

He flew bn last night from 
Qatar to the United Arab 
Emirates on the third and final 
leg of his Gulf tour. 

He said he believed Kuwait 
was acting with great restraint 
and circumspection. - 
Mr Renton, who arrived in 
Qatar from Bahrain on Thurs- 
day, said, without mentioning 
Iran,, that Britain deplored the 
latest offensive in' the Sfe-year-. 
old Gulf war. which brought 
Iranian troops within sight of 
the Kuwaiti border. 


“We consider any extension 
of the war into neighbouring 
countries with very, very great 
concern indeed,” he said. 

In_ Qatar, he chaired a 
meeting of British diplomats 
in the Gulf and Arabian 
peninsula.. 

After talks with government 
leaders in Bahra in and Qatar, 
Mr Renton raid that the six- 
nation Gulf Co-operation 
'Council (GCC) was consider- 
ing very carefully under what 
circumstances it would deploy 
its Peninsular Shield rapid 
deployment force, if asked to 
do so by Kuwait 

He said it was sad to see the 
peace process launched a year 
ago by King Husain of Jordan 
and the Palestine Liberation 
Organization's leader, Mr 
Yassir Arafat come to a 
.standstill for the time being:

A passage on 

Archbold \ Criminal /'leaning 
Evidence and Practice repeated 
in the 42nd edition, pi 632 
paragraph 20- 49 (7), which was 
criticized by the Privy Council 
in Kong Cheuk Kwan v R, 
reported in The Times on July 
12. 1985 - on the morning when 
a judge summed up in a trial 
involving manslaughter - was 
very p ro pe rl y drawn to his 
attention by counsel and the 
summing up, although based 
partly on the offending passage, 
omitted pans of it. 

The Lord Chief Justice so 
stated when giving reserved 
judgment dismissing an appeal 
by Kevin Good&llow. aged 24. 
from, conviction at Newcastle 
upon Tyne Crown Court (Judge. 
Beaumont QC and a jury) on 
three counts ot manslaughter 
and two arson counts. He was 
sentenced to six 

years 'imprisonment. 

Mr G. B. Stewart assigned by 
the Registrar of Criminal Ap- 
peals. for the appellant: . Mr 
Manin Bethel. QC and Mr M. 
C Carr for the Crown. 

The LORD CHIEF JUSTICE 
said that the appellant set tight

at 24 Cossack Terrace. Pallion, 
Sunderland, pouring petrol Over 
furniture and setting fire K> ft. 

His wife, aged 22. another young 
woman and bis son aged two 
died. 

The appellant, who wanted to 
'move, was having difficulties 
with wo local men, one of 
whom had been fined for 
damaging the front door of No 
24. 

The appeflanL who was in 
arrears in his rent, had no 
chance of exchanging hts coun- 
cil bouse for another and con- 
ceived the idea of setting it on 
fire as if it had been caused by a 
petrol bomb. 

The grounds of appeal were 
that the judge failed adequately 
to direct the jury on the bw of 
man slaugh t e r and in particufar 
had directed them on the basts 
of the criticized passage in 
Archbold. 

That p*«g*g* was criticized in 
Knang as confusing causing 
death by an .illegal act of : 
Mokncc. what had been said in . 
R t C3td*ti!i\ 1982] AC 34 1 K in 
R i Laurence (Stephen/ < 11982 ] 

A r 50191 and in R »• Bateman 
((1925) J9 Cr App R 8). 

The insure! case was capable 
of falling within eftber or both 
types of manslaughter th e Lem- 
rrnee aspect or on the •unlawful 
art" 


As to a direction on an 
unlawful and dangerous act a 
defendant was guilty -of man- 
slaughter where he did an 
unlawful an soch that aD sober 
and reasonable people -would 
inevitably recognize bid to sub- 
ject another person to, at least, 
the ride of some resulting harm, 
albeit not serious harm and 
caused death - R v Church 
<11966] 1 QB 59). 

Mr Stewart, in submitting 
that the present case was not one 
of “unlawful act" manslaughter, 
relied on R v Dolby ([19821 l 
WLR 425) m which Lord Justice 
Waller said that, where a charge 
of manslaughter was based on 
an unlawful and dangerous act, 

it had to be an act directed at the 
victim and likely to cause 
immediate injury however 
slighL 

What Lord Justice Waller was 
intending to say was that there 
must be -no fresh intervening 
cause between the act and the 
death. 

Their Lordships doubted the 
assertion in Smith and Hogan 
Criminal Law 5th edition 
<1983) p315 that, because the 
Appellate Committee of the 
House of. Lords refused the 
prosecutor leave to appeal 
Dolby must be taken to repre- 
sent the bw. 

The questions which the jury 
had to decide on the charge of| 
such manslaughter were: (1) 
Was the act intentional? (2) Was 
it unlawful? (3) Was it an act 
which any reasonable person 
would realise was bound to] 
subject some other human being 
to the nsk of physical harm, 
albeit not necessarily serious 
harm? (4) Was that act the cause 
of death? . 

The judge in feet directed the 
jury on that type of. man- 
slaughter. He went further and 
added observations which were 
more appropriate to the Law- 
rence type of manslaughter. If J 
anything, those passages re- 
adied in a direction which was 
more favourable to the appel- 
lant than if they- bad been 
omitted. 

Their Lordships did not con- [

THE TIMES MONDAY MARCH 17 1986 

SPECTRUM 


Tomorrow’ s Budget will be accompanied by proposals to reform Britain’s complex and unpopular family taxation system 

Lawson enters the lionesses’ den 


Family tax, it has long been 
agreed, is a muddle. Nigd 
Lawson's predecessor as Chancel- 
lor of the Exchequer produced an 
Green Paper on its defects in 1980. 
The Government hastily forgot 
about so contentious an issue. But 
Lawson’s Green Paper will be 
different: he knows what be would 
like to do and forewarned us in his 
last Budget; tomorrow he will 
provide the foil details. Already, 
however, his ideas are under 
attack. 

Ever since tax allowances for 
children were replaced by child 
benefit in 1 979, a married couple's 
tax position has depended simply 
on whether one or both go out to 
work. Husband and wife may 
choose to be taxed separately on 
their earnings — as if they were just 
a pair of single people who 
hapijened to live together — but 
this is an option that is worthwhile 
only for couples well into the 
higher-rate tax brackets. For most, 
tax bills will be lower if the wife al- 
lows her income to be treated as 
part of her husband's, because he 
then receives a larger allowance 
than a single man. 

Until Lawson tops up allow- 
ances in tomorrow’s Budget, the 
single person's allowance of tax- 
free income is £2,205 a year; the 
married man's is £3,455. So 
couples need to be earning a lot — 
at least £25,360 during 1985-86 — 
to find it worth forgoing the 
married man's allowance for the 
advantage of an independent 
climb up the tax scales. Only 
about 170,000 couples are in this 
category. Even these couples may 
not achieve complete separation. 
All investment receipts, however 
small are jointly taxed as part of 
the husband's income. And mar- 
ried couples, whether separately 
taxed or not, free the same 
£30,000 joint limit on mortgage 
relief as a single person. 

The tax system reflects the old. 


Planned tax reforms 
for couples will be 
published tomorrow 
in a Green Paper. 
Sarah Hogg looks 
at the politics 
and Sally Brompton 
talks to the payers 


traditional pattern of male bread- 
winner supporting housewife. But 
today about 60 per cent of married 
women go out to work, at least 
pan-time. Their husbands then 
also receive the wife's earned 
income allowance, which is at 
present exactly the same as the 
single allowance. 

It also means that a working 
couple receive between them two- 
and-a-half times the basic single 
allowance, making them rather 
better off than a pair of single 
people. If there is only one income 
coming into the family, however, 
their allowances amount only to 
one-and-a-half times the single 
allowance. The final bizarre fea- 
ture of the present system is the 
exception to that rule: if it is the 
wife rather than Lhe husband who 
is the sole breadwinner, her in- 
come still counts as his, and he 
may claim both the married man's 
and the wife's earned income 
allowances. 

Treating the income of married 
women as belonging to their 
husbands has been condemned as 
illegal sex discrimination by the 
courts in other European coun- 
tries. An end to discrimination, 
however, is not an end to- -the 
problem of how families should be 


THE EUROPEAN OPTIONS 


Nowhere in the European 
Economic Community is a married 
couple taxed exactly the same 
as two single people. In all 
countries, they are taxed jointly 
on their investment income. In 
many, however, they are 
allowed some separation of their 
tax affairs. 

• FRANCE is the most famity- 
minded and a husband, wife and 
chfctren living together, are 
taxed together. Tax bins are then 
reduced acoordtng to the size of 
the family, in a way particularly 
generous to those with lots of 
children. Child care expenses for 
children under the age of three, 
are allowed against tax. 

• GERMANY allows couples to 

opt for separata taxation. In 


.... •' 
r.' •'* 


practice, however, most opt tor 
joint taxation because their 
combined Income is taxed as if 
they were two single people each 
earning exactly half the total. 

This system of “equal splitting 1 ' 
fends to reduce the tax on the 
higher of the two family incomes. 
Tax deductions are also 
allowed for dependent children. 

• ITALY moved towards 
independent taxa tion of husband 
and wife in 1977. All earned : " 
income is treated individually. The 
couple's investment income is 
normally totted up and then taxed 
as if each received half. But 
Italy stilt retains some dements of 

S ' tint taxation because 
usbands (or wives) receive family 
tax-credits which depend on the 
incomes of their partners. 




taxed. Governments free a funda- 
mental choice. Either the taxman 
should simply ignore marriage: or 
the system should treat the couple 
as the basic tax unit, while taking 
no notice of whether husband, 
wife or both bring home the family 
income. 

Independence in tax — the first 
option — is favoured by many 
women's groups. The objection is 
that it would cut the family 
income of couples of whom only 
one went out to work. Many of 
these are not weD off and are 
caring for young children. Joint 
taxation, which takes no notice of 
who earns what, is the preferred 
tax option in West Germany and 
the basis of the system in France. 
The objection is that this discrimi- 
nates between single people and 
married couples. 

Tomorrow the Chancellor will 
give details of his attempt to get 
round both these difficulties. Un- 
der his scheme for “transferable 
allowances", husband and wife 
would each have exactly the same 
allowance as a single person. But 
to help the couple with only one 
earner, the other would be allowed 
to transfer her (or his) allowance 
to set it against the sole family 
income. Whether husband, wife or 
both do the earning, the couple 
receives two single allowances. 

This compromise has already 
attracted criticism. It has been 
rejected in advance by a commit- 
tee of the House of Lords, chaired 
by Baroness Serota. This commit- 
tee. however, collected a wealth of 
evidence, much of which showed 
some support for the idea of 
transferable allowances. But the 
Institute of Fiscal Studies objects 
that transferable allowances 
would discourage married women 
from working, because their 
husbands' lake-home pay would 
fall as the transferred allowance 
was switched back to the wife. The 
Child Poverty Action Group ar- 
gues that mothers kept at home by 
child-care responsibilities should 
be helped by child benefits, not tax 
allowances. The Fawcett Society 
has argued that transferable allow- 
ances would interfere with* 
women's privacy. 

The first objection points up the 
fret that “transferable allowances’* 
are something of an optical illu- 
sion. They look like a move 
towards independent taxation; in 
fact, they move the system further 
towards joint taxation. Under the 
present system, couples will be 
taxed less if the wife goes out to 
work for part of the family 
income; under “transferable 
allowances" they will not Some 
groups have complained that the 
Chancellor is trying to drive 
women back to the kitchen sink. 
Others, like the Institute of Tax- 
ation, believe the change would

remove the bias in the present 
system. 

Most women’s groups prefer in 
principle the alternative of inde- 
pendent taxation. But few argue 
this should apply to investment 
income; and as the number of 
women with modest savings rises, 
so this exception will increasingly 
inhibit lhe development of the tax 
system in that direction. At the 
other end of the income scale, the 
social security system continues to 
treat married couples jointly. 

The CPAG’s objections rein- 
force its campaign for bigger child 
benefits. Surveys show that most 
women prefer cash hdp in hand to 
cash in their husband's pay packet 
Child benefits, however, are ex- 
pensive because they go to all 
families. Norman Fowler, the 
Social Services Secretary, pro- 
poses to cut the cost by means- 


tested part of child support But 
this introduces exactly the same 
disincentive to earning extra fam- 
ily income as in “transferable 
allowances". 

• The CPAG and others, howev- 
er, rightly point out that the 
Government has gone about 
things in a topsy-turvy way. 
Fowler's social security plans were 
launched well before Lawson 
firmed up his tax ideas for 
families, yet the changes proposed 
for social security substantially 
blunt the impact of transferable 
allowances. 

The poverty group also objects 
that transferable allowances 
would hdp the idle rich as wdl as 
poor mothers at home. The Chan- 
cellor can reply that child benefits 
would not help those at home 
because they are caring for the 
elderly and disabled. There are 
about 4.4 million married women

“So I rtiiafc that as Ear as I'm

that I had that extra bit of cash irf

For die first four years of their 
marriage both Caroline and bar 
husband, Nicholas, a 42-year -old 
chartered surveyor, were working 
but even then Caroline felt that 
they should be receiving equal

there was no logical reason why we 
should not have been receiving the . 
same tax incentives."

Richard, aged 34, a consultant 
chartered engineer, was also 
amazed when he first learned that 
Lindsay's investment income 
wonld .be added to his income for 
taxation purposes. “It's not the 
actual money that we're concerned 
about - it's not very ranch anyway 

— and we don't have that competi- 
tive thing about money", says , 
Lindsay. “It really is a matter of . 
principle. It seems ridfenkms that . 
someone in my position is not able 
to lake care of her own financial 
affairs as she chooses." 

She also feds that separate 
taxation is a most for someone in a 
business partnership like herself

couple jointly earning less than

from personal allowances.

ples would be as well off as they 
are today. 

But Lawson does not have the 
money to make the change today. 
Nor does he have the computers;* 
Transferable allowances are a lot 
more complicated than the, 
present system, which allows the 
taxman to ignore large numbers of 
married women; so they could 
only be introduced at the end of 
the 1980s at the earliest. By then,' 
of course, they may have been, 
overtaken by the general election; 
but a crucial test of tomorrow’s 
Green Paper will be whether it 
explains how be intends to get

Massacre in the Andes *

He has been dubbed the 
“Creole Pol Pot" and “the 
monster of the Andes", and 
even he admits in his profane, 
guttural, ungrammatical 
Spanish that be has grown 
“weary of killing so many 
hijuepula (sonofebitch)". 

With reason: for in recent 
weeks Javier Delgado and his 
henchmen have slaughtered 
164 people in south-western 
Colombia. Men, women and 
children had been charged, 
tried and condemned under 
“revolutionary justice" and 
then garrotted, a rope strung 
round their necks and sudden- 
ly pulled as taut as a guitar 
string, so light that Delgado's 
men joked you could strum a 
tune on it. Finally came the 
butchery of the cone de 
chalcco ^waistcoat slash), a 
knife ripping open lhe bellies 
to prevent the corpses inflat- 
ing and resurfacing after buri- 
al. Not even the bodies of 
pregnant women were respect- 
ed. 

But the dead did not stay in 
their graves. The first were 
discovered by campesinos in 
the Tacueyo region of the 
Cauca department, protruding 
grotesquely out of the boggy 
ground, skeleton jaws still 
gripped in tenor. Police initi- 
ated a search and quickly 
found countless more scat- 
tered over the area. 

Today Tacueyo symbolizes 
the terrible madness that has 
swept through Colombia’s 
guerrilla movements, long the 
most active in South America. 
Most Colombians thought 
that mindlessness had reached 
its nadir in the bloody may- 


Recent atrocities by 
guerrilla leaders 
such as Javier 
Delgado (right) have 
aroused fears that 
bloody, all-out 
civil war is about to 
consume Colombia 

hem of the siege of the Palace 
of Justice in Bogota by- terror- 
ists of the April 19 movement 
(M-I9) last November. But 
what happened at Tacueyo 
suggests there is no limit to the 
insanity 

Delgado is the fanatical and 
surely deranged leader of a 
small, obscure ultra-militant 
group called the Ricardo Fran- 
co Front. It is a measure of his 
paranoia that he claims pre- 
posterously that the 164 “little 
runts" executed were paid 
informers of the military who 
had infiltrated the ranks of the 
“Francos", a group whose 
numbers have never exceeded 
200 . 

Delgado, aged 34, a tall, 
beefy man with fish-like eyes, 
a Roman nose, the shadow of 
a Cite Guevara beard, an 
incomprehensible line in 
Marxist ideology, and a taste 
for contraband English gin, 
has also been tagged 
“Colombia's Abimael 
Guzman" most apt of all the 
comparisons drawn since his 
sudden rise to infamy.

Previously Colombians had 
tended, to think of their own 
country's guerillas as rather 
more sophisticated. No more. 
Today it seems the Francos 
and M-19 are determined to 
challenge Sendero as the most 
barbaric insurgents of the 
Andes. 

Delgado and the current M- 
19 leaders are light years 
removed from a more respect- 
ed tradition of Colombian 
insurgency that once attracted 
some of the nation’s best and 
brightest idealistic intellectu- 
als as well as barely literate but 
strong-willed campesino lead- 
ers. 

The country’s most cele- 
brated guerrilla was Father 
Camflo Torres, a figure as 
revered as Che by die Latin- 
American Left Torres, killed 
in action 20 years ago, is the 
inspiration of the Paraguayan 
priest-turned-subversive in 
Graham .Greene's The Honor- 
ary ConsuL 

A former colleague said that 
Delgado "bought' ’militancy” 
from ransom funds raised 
through kidnapping wealthy 
landowners. As a result, the 
Francos are the best paid 
guerrillas in Colombia, earn- 
ing 40,000 pesos (about £160) 
a month, double the mini- 
mum wage. 


Colombia remains a func- 
tioning if imperfect two-party 
democracy- Despite its con- 
tinuing failure to meet the 
ever-mounting needs of the 
urban and rural poor, the 
nation has become more open 
under President Belisario 
Betancur, who knew and ad- 
mixed Torres and who has, 
with mixed results, boldly 
sought to negotiate peace with 
the guerrillas. 

The Francos are a break- 
away dissident group of the 
biggest subversive movement, 
the Moscow-line revolution- 
ary armed forces of Colombia 
(FARC), often called the 
armed wing of the Colombian 
Communist Party. FARC has 
broadly honoured ceasefire 
pacts and is currently reorga- 
nizing as a mainstream politi- 
cal movement which will 
contest the presidential elec- 
tion in May. 

But there are real fears that 
men like Delgado could 
plunge the nation into a new 
era of violence to rival the 
sectarian civil war that raged 
between liberals and conser- 
vatives in the 1950s, in which tf 
an estimated 300,000 per- 
ished. 

Delgado stands alone. He 
has declared war not only on 
the government, the oligarchy 
and the armed forces, but also * 
on FARC the Communist 
Party and the left in genera! 
for “betraying" the revolu- 
tionary cause. 

“This is the most difficult 
period of the revolutionary 
life I’ve ever known but also 
the one that has most filled us 
with pride as revolutionaries", 
he pontificated to journalists 
at a Franco encampment. « 
Nearby six hijueputa, hands ▼ 
tied behind their backs, were 
being fed like dogs by his men. 
One was a 1 3-year-old boy — a 
military intelligence agent ac- 
cording to Delgado. 

One is reminded of the 
Peruvian novelist Mario Var- 
gas .Llosa’s description of 
Abimael Guzman as “a man 
motivated by messianic pas- 
sion, fanaticism, .the belief 
that he is the uniquely enlight- 
ened one to save the country". 4® 

The feeling on the Colombi- 
an left is that given enough 
time and enough rope Delga- 
do will eventually hang him- 
self. as surely as he and his 
men throttled to death the 164 
buried at Tacueyo.

COLLECTIONS 


British designers have 
\ forsaken punk for 
1950s Paris fashion — 

tight skirts. 

- high heels, and the 
* French poodle as the" 
ultimate accessory 




Left to right: Betty Jackson's Parisian poodles. Alistair Blair's shapely evening dress. Jasper Conran's swingy tailored coat. 


C hic with cheek is the sew 
young London look. Those 
designers still showing 
dressing-up clothes are find- 
ing themselves up a punk creek 
without a safety pin. 

The stand-out collections were 
Alistair Blair, a Scot trained in Paris 
and new to London's fashion scene; 
and Jasper Cbaran, whose perky 
interpretat i on of Dior's New Look 
seemed just that. Blair is aged just 
30. Conran 26. Both were 1 babes in 
arms when Paris couture ruled the 
fashion world and it is their own 
generation — the children of the 
1960s and 1970s — who are already 
wearing this look on the streets. 
Their mothers, who swapped corsets 
for feshion freedom, will find the 
nouvelle couture a great shade, 
especially when they realize that the 
new- generation — as ever in feshion 
- is tiptoeing in grandmother’s 
footsteps. 

The line is tight and curvy, but not 
necessarily .short. It starts from a 
wai&led jacket, which tops a skinny 
skin or a much longer pleated one. 
The mood is pert and sexy, with 
febrics that ding, and wool jersey the 
favourite. There is a strong return of 
the short day-dress and of the longer 
Princess tine for coats. The evening, 
and much of the daywear, centres on 
the Little Black Dress. 


Jasper Conran told me that he was 
malting a “grown-up” collection. He 
did just that. It means that he has 
matured as a designer while his 
clothes look fresh and young. Apart 
from a scene with black leather, 
which designers worldwide should 
how lay to rest, this was a splendid 
show, played out in black and white 
with dashes of hot colour. The two 
strong silhouettes were the shapely 
suit,' best in dogtooth check, and the 
fuller New Look pleats under a short 
jacket. The large evening wear 
section gave us 37 varieties of the 
LBD, from a quilted velvetsheath to 
flirty' full skirts in black chantiUy 
lace. 

Alistair Blair proved bis debt to 
Karl Lagerfeld, with whom he 
worked for four years after Dior and 
Givenchy couture. Blair showed all 
the restraint Karl never has. and 
none of the master's wh. The result 
was covetabie clothes in fitted yet 
fluid shapes and luxurious fabrics. 
Blair understands couture cutting; 
capes grew' effortlessly from the 
backs of his coats, bias-cut drapes 
bisected crepe evening dresses. 

His silhouette is totally Parisian: a 
fitted three-quarter coat over a short 
dim skirt and a narrow evening line 
that shadows, the body without 


silver buttons and some couture 
touches of fabric rosettes were the 
only decoration on clothes that were 
sexy but classy and made a good 
debut for a new designer. 

London's leading young couturier, 
Bruce Oldfield, gave a disappointing 
show overall, although many of the 
individual dresses were appealing. 
An off-the-shoulder boat-shaped 
neckline was a strong evening One 
that is coming through elsewhere in 
London. 


O 


Idfield also makes subtly 
draped jerseys and should 
be given full credit for 
seeing, long before the rest 
of the London designers, the poten- 
tial of what is now called nouvelle 
couture. Oldfield makes clothes for 
sophisticated women who rise at 
noon, and he would be wiser to show 
only his glamorous evening clothes. 

It is a steady season for the regular 
designers, whose role model has 
always been the discreet Princess of 
Wales rather than raunchy Madon- 
na. Roland Klein took the fitted 
three-quarter riding jacket, put it 
over a slim knee-length skirt in day 
and evening fabrics. Murray Arbeid 
opted for Dynasty dressing, with 
predatory scarlet and black evening 


gripping it (something most British ' dresses, gold lame poured over black 
designers still have to learn). Flat velvet and what can best be de- 


scribed as Krystle embroidery, 
sumptuously worked as trompe-l'oeil 
jewellery. Yuki and Patricia Lester 
both produced columns of elegant 
pleats. Lester’s with no shape but a 
great seme of colour and theatre, 
Yuki with the cut of couture, to 
which he spiritually belongs. 

1 question the wisdom of most of 
these designers, and many of the 
more commercial young ones, in 
showing on the runway. The 9,000 
buyers and Press now drawn to 
London want to see the unbridled 
Imagination for which we are 
known. Yet many of the freer spirits 
show around town simply take 
stands at Olympia 2, rather than 
making the statement of a show. 

If couture is ousting punk, where 
does that leave the more outrageous 
or creative designers? 

Betty Jackson has moved on from 
oversize and brought her silhouette 
closer to the body. She sent up the 
couture mood with her sharp tailor- 
ing and her French poodle accesso- 
ries (jewelled and real). John Rocha 
strains at inventive tailoring and 
sometimes pulls off a good shape. 
Like John Galliano, who cuts clever- 
ly but whose clothes are uncompro- 
misingly odd, Rocha has a talent — 
but one still in bud. 

Designers who work closely with 
fabric primers had a good season. 


Photographs by HARRY KERR. 

Body Map came down to earth, 
landing in Elizabethan England, 
which brought a subtle Tudor Rose 
print by Hilde Smith which was used 
for stretch leotards and dressing 
gown robes. A very tight body line 
under a loose coat is a London look 
and it gave Body Map its mix of 
ebullience and sexiness. 

S ensuality lifts the new couture 
out of a prim 1950s mould. 
Katharine Hamnett's collec- 
tion emphasized the blatant 
sexuality that pulsates though young 
music and style. Her menswear was 
powerful, centred on the suit also in 
a 1950s silhouette but with a much 
lighter construction. Hamnent did 
not work hard enough at her 
women's wear, bringing out again 
the shredded denim that is pan of a 
hippie revival story. Fresher were 
her witty sexist secretary clothes: 
striped blouses and skin-tight skins. 

Sociologists are talking about a 
return to sexual restraint by the 
young, and see that echoed in 
fashion by a return to conventional 
tailoring. Bui nouvelle couture is not 
po-faced and strict, but sexy and fun. 
That is how it is shown and will be 


worn.

Vengeance as a 
sweet art form 


Living well is said to be the 
best revenge but it can't be 
half as much fun as ensuring 
that the object of one’s ven- 
geance has a perfectly horri- 
ble time. 

I am always coming across 
good revenging tips in books: 
a wife who stirred a mega- 
dose of Ex-Lax into her 
husband's chocolate mousse 
on the evening that he had an 
assignment with his mistress; 
a woman who put dead birds 
under her husband's pillow. 
It wasn't the stiff little corpses 
that made him suffer. What 
really got to him was that 
when he asked her what she 
meant by it all, she replied: 
“If you don't know that, I 
can't help you”. 

Real life is an equally 
promising source of material. 

I have a friend who broke 
into her departed lover’s new 
flat, piled his clothes into a 
□eat pyramid and set fire to 
them. What made that partic- 
ular bit of revenge so thor- 
oughly satisfactory was that 
the man was such a lovely 
dresser. His suits were fluid 
Italian tweeds and he had 
drawers of sugar-almond col- 
oured American shirts and 
sweaters just like the Great 
Gatsby. It is taking him years 
and a fortune of airline 
tickets to build up a new 
wardrobe. 

I witnessed another spot- 
on little episode while 1 was 
visiting a man who had 
recently escaped his domestic 
responsibilities by renting a 
“studio” the size of a decent 
broom cupboard. The 
doorbell rang and there was 
Pickfords, asking where to 
put the books. The books? 
Indeed, all 2.000 of them, 
packed up in massive crates 
and dispatched by his wife, 
who was at that moment 
rattling around in the 
couple's 10-bedr oomed man- 
sion and laughing her head 
off whenever she caught sight 
of an empty bookcase. 

It is the little meannesses 
that spur one to thoughts of 
revenge. Such as the sugges- 
tion from a soon-to-be ex- 
husband that one’s 
possessions should be divid- 
ed in such a way that out of a 



c

PERRICK 




set of 12 champagne glasses 
(one broken) he should have 
six. At these upsetting times, 
one's female friends are a 
source of comfort and inspi- 
ration. 

Byron was quite right when 
he said, "Sweet is revenge — 
especially to women”. I have 
never seen such sparkling 
eyes and prettily flushed 
cheeks as those on the wom- 
an I know as they made 
suggestions as to what should 
be done with the champagne 
glasses. The neatest plan was 
to pulverize them in the 
liquidizing machine and put 
the crumbs of glass in a box 
marked “Six champagne 
flutes, as requested”. 

The next lime someone 
trots out that tired old lament 
about why aren't there any 
great female composers/an- 
ists/chefs. 1 will not have to 
rely on my usual rejoinder 
that there are but they remain 
unnoticed 1 will be able to 
say that women express their 
genius in other creative ways, 
especially in devising perfect 
schemes of revenge, and you 
only have to go back to 
Salome to know that it is true. 

Women are so good at this 
kind of evil-doing because 
they need to be. Any group 
which is denied power has to 
console itself with little ev- 
ery-day rebellions and incon- 
sequential victories, as well as 
a primitive certainty that one 
day. those who have the 
power to hurt and destroy 
will get their come-uppance. 


A phone by any other name 


Hare you ever wondered what 
is happening to the red 
telephone kiosks designed by 
Sir Giles Gilbert Scott in 
1924, now that they are being 
replaced by boring grey cano- 
pies? They are being shipped 
off to America and promoted 
by Sir Giles's great-nephew, 
Malcolm Gilbert Scott as 
something that wiU “comple- 
ment all types of decor and 
lifestyle”. 

Mr Gilbert Scott also in- 
sists that “clients have al- 
ready discovered a host of 
ingenious uses for their boxes 
in the home, garden or 
office” which is more than I 
ever conld. You couldn't turn 
them into a shower-cubicle 
because the door is too heavy. 
Yon couldn't throw in a 
couple of silk cushions and 


convert them into a love-nest 
because their narrowness 
leaves no room to manoeuvre. 

This is no fault of Sir 
Gilbert, who designed his 
kiosk to make telephone calls 
in and to provide a cheerful, 
scarlet sight on a rainy eve- 
ning for travellers who had 
got lost or were running late 
and needed to let somebody 
know. 

Sir Gilbert’s box is a thing 
of beauty in its own right and 
I suppose that if yon had a 
mind to, yon conld just park it 
in yonr living-room for its 
ornamental value. Bnt I think 
yon would very tired of an- 
swering the question, “What 
is that telephone kiosk doing 
in here?” every time yon had 
visitors.

If you've sold your son on the 
idea that the road to a high- 
flying future lies in getting into 
Oxbridge, and spent his chris- 
tenihg mentally measuring out 
his life in terms of victor 
ludorums, you could, accord- 
ing to a psychologist, be 
channelling him into Candida- 
ture for future cardiac disease. 

Paul Bracked of Stanford 
University, California, has 
given parents a whole new 
area to worry about in the 
“must try harder" zone. All of 
us who have anything to do 
with children can probably 
plead guilty to summoning the 
fantasy fairies of health, 
wealth and prosperity around 
the crib, but is it possible in 
the upwardly striving 1980s 
that we want these things too 
much and push our children 
too hard to attain them, with 
alarming consequences? 

Bracke’s research shows 
that Type A behaviour, associ- 
ated with high-risk heart dis- 
ease, begins at home, and 
more specifically, in the rela- 
tionship between father and 
son. 

. Dr Steve Duck, a former 
senior lecturer in psychology 
at Lancaster University and 
now professor of communica- 
tion studies at the University 
of Iowa, tells us to “look for a 
lot of eye movement Type As 
are easily distracted and look- 
ing for something else to do. 
They fidget and move their 
hands a lot They’re tense, 
hard-driven, competitive 
types who don't do many 
things for a laugh and are 
committed to their work”. 

The research at Stanford 
comes at a time when some 
doctors are claiming tbai post- 
mortems carried out on young 
people killed in road accidents 
are showing signs of their 
susceptibility to heart disease- 
■ Bracke found xhar parents of 
Type A boys interfered more 
than did parents of more easy- 
youngstexs. He found 
of Type A boys were 


Pushy parents with 
great expectations 
can create children 
heading for heart 
disease, warns an 
American researcher 


much more likely to discipline 
with physical and intimida- 
tory techniques. 

In his study of 184 children 
aged from II to 15. Bracke 
claims Type A children could 
face a greater risk of heart 
disease than their Type B 
counterparts. Like father, tike 
son, boys with several Type A 
characteristics shared many 
health problems with their 
paternal role-models. They 
suffered insomnia, muscle 
tension and stomach upsets, 
racing heartbeats, cold sweats 
and frequent lengthy bouts of 
anger. 

Anhur Crisp, professor in 
psychiatry at the sleep labora- 
tory attached to St George's 
Hospital, London, says Type 
As do tend to sleep less 
althoughthat may be simply 
because they need less. “I 
would say clinically that Type 
A parents do pressurize their 
children- It’s a sort of middle- 
class attitude on the pan of 
those families who want their 
children to achieve and 
succeed.”* 

It may, to us, sound rather 
American. But in Britain, too, 
stress in children is being 
watched closely and thought 
by many to be reaching danger 
levels. 

With a divorce rate of 
nearly one in three, vast 
numbers of boys are shoulder- 
ing the responsibility of being 
”man of the house” from the 
tenderest years. . 

Charles Vetter, director of 
ACCEPT (Alcoholic Commu- 
nity Centres for Education, 

\ 


Prevention and Treatment), is 
worried about the results of 
other pressures on children. A 
survey among 600 youngsters 
by ACCEPT has found what 
Mr Vetter says is “an amazing 
amount of drinking between 
the ages of! 1 to 15”. 

Dr Kirk Weir, consultant 
psychiatrist at Guy's Hospital, 
Lewisham, says a chief cause 
of anxiety in children is 
families breaking up.He says 
one characteristic of high- 
achieving families is that 
many parents who believe 
their child has a reading or 
concentration problem “want 
them to be called dyslexic 
because that gives them some 
kind of acceptable excuse." 

Bracke's notion that pushy 
parents can cause hostile, 
competitive personalities 
heading for heart disease -is 
one which British doctors and 
psychologists regard with 
scepticism. Bracke himself 
says: “We don't know for sure 
that the children are going to 
be adult Type As but we really 
are measuring something 
that's consistent with age.” 

Barrie Brown, senior lectur- 
er in psychology at the Insti- 
tute of Psychiatry, says: 
“What has struck me very 
much in recent years is the 
high number of young people 
who suffer from a range of 
symptoms remarkably simitar 
to adult depression. 

“Many of the issues raised 
are lack of jobs, a sense of 
futility, of having parents who 
don't understand them, push 
them, and have unreasonable 
expectations, AH these apply.” 

Heart disease or not - with 
adults everywhere currently 
swapping the family's butter 
for a low cholesterol spread, 
changing their gold-topped 
pints for skimmed milk, and 
warning their offspring of the 
hazards of smoking, now is 
probably as good a time to re- 
examine our ambitions for our 
children's future.

Many things divide the world. 

Some, like hunger and 
poverty, are all too visible. 

Others we see less easily: 

Our own attitudes, 
perceptions, and assumptions. 

These - until we know it - 
create the deepest divisions of 
ail. 

The work ol VSO volunteers 
throughout Africa, Asia, the 
Caribbean and the Pacific is 
therefore concerned with the 
whole condition. 

Volunteers have much io 
leach (whether in diesel 
mechancs or medicine, 
education or small business 
management). 

Bui just as much to learn. 

For example, the Third world - 
tar from lagging behind the rest 
of us. as this demeaning title 
suggests - has values and 
abilities which are badly needed 
in the 'advanced' economies of 
East and West 


The realisation comes to 
most volunteers, sooner or later, 
during their two-year 
commitment. 

And each time it happens, 
the world draws closer.

Racist

The campaign by some Labour 
activists for blade sections - 
*wch have been outlawed by the 
P®ty - grows more fratricidal A 
national committee representing 
the sections has withdrawn co- 
operation from the national 
executive's Black and Asian Ad- 
visory Committee. The sections' 
'first newsletter, which has fallen 
into my hands, condemns the 
advisory committee as “a body 
imposed on the black community 
which elsewhere would be de- 
nounced as a Baniustan sham". 
The newsletter boasts that two 
more constituencies, malting five 
in afl, are to allow black section 
delegates to vote at meetings to 
select parliamentary candidates 
(rendering the selection officially 
void), lie two are Norwood, 
where John Fraser, an ex-minister, 
could find himself under pressure, 
and Streatham. The newsletter has 
no time for Derek Hatton, how- 
ever. It says that though 8 percent 
of Liverpool's population is black, 
only 0.8 per cent of its workforce is 
black; and that of more than 1,000 
‘day-care places only six have gone 
to blades. “Liverpool City Council 
is racist,” it concludes.

Stuart Holmes, who gave up his 
home and job to travel Britain in a

outside the SDP conference — has 
in the past few months pursued 
David Graham, director-general 
of the transport executive, even 
into the office loo to pursuade him 
to ban cigarette advertising on 
buses. Graham has now agreed to 
hand over unbooked space for 
anti-weed posters. “I find him a 
bit odd but I realize he's sincere,” 
says Graham, wearily. “Just so 
long as his campaign -doesn’t cost 
me revenue or prevent me from 
lighting up...” He is a self- 
confessed 60-a-day man.

Talk about exclusive: the Inter-

THE TIMES 

CRIME 

UP- 

RECDRD 

increase 


Is the world seeing the emergence 
of a “Reagan doctrine”? Does the 
US role in the foil of despots in 
Haiti and the Philippines point to 
a new activist phase in foreign 
policy, one that bridges long- 
standing divisions between con- 
servatives and liberals? A 
vigorous, if somewhat muddled, 
debate is now swirling through 
Washington as the US tries yet 
again to define its place in the 
world, its obligations to democ- 
racy and its opposition to tyranny. 

Hie president’s supporters are 
now trumpeting the triumph of a 
doctrine some claim as the most 
significant revision of US policy 
since the Cold War. For the first 
time, they say, Washington has 
found a way of translating its 
defence of freedom into policies 
that have achieved a previously 
unrealized combination: rolling 
back the advance of communism, 
sweeping away dictators in Latin 
America and nurturing fledgling 
democracies. 

The doctrine, defined as the 
active support of democratic ele- 
ments around the world, takes US 
- foreign policy out of a status-quo. 
hold-tbe-tine view of the world 
(albeit accompanied by tough 
Reagan rhetoric) and puts it on the 
offensive as a revolutionary 
power, challenging communism 
on its own ideologica] ground. 

For a generation the US has 
seen one friendly government 
after another fall to forces hostile 
to itself and to democracy: from 
Eastern Europe to China. Cuba to 
Vietnam and Cambodia, Ethiopia 
to Afghanistan and Iran; and now 
Nicaragua. But since 1979 when 
the San dini stas came to power in 
Nicaragua, no other avowedly 
Marxist government has taken 
over in a non-communist country. 

In Haiti and the Philippines, the 
prospects for democracy and 
continuing US friendship have 
survived the overthrow of presi- 
dents Duvalier and Marcos. Rea- 
gan supporters see a clear line 
running from El Salvador through 
Grenada, Haiti, the Philippines 
and continuing, they hope, to 
Nicaragua. 

But such arguments depend on 
a sleight of hand. For when 
Reagan first outlined the basic 
tenets of what is now claimed to be 
the doctrine before Parliament in 
London in 1982. he spoke mainly 
in terms of anti-communist insur- 
gency. And even in his State of the 
Union speech last year, when he 
declared that the US had recov- 
ered from post-Vietnam self- 
doubt to resume its role as leader 
of the free world, he saw the task 
as standing ty allies and those 
risking their lives to defy Soviet- 
supported aggression around the 
• world. 

Haiti and the Philippines were 
coincidental triumphs inflicted 
on the administration despite the 
conservatives' support for Mar- 
cos. It has taken some skilful 
semantics to weave Washington's 
ad hoc reactions into the overall 
pattern and fink the rejoicing in 
Manila with the Contras' yearning 
to dance in Managua. 

Nevertheless, it is clear that in 
the current debate on foreign 
policy and America’s interests, 
ideologies and labels seem to have 
been switched. It is the conser- 
vatives who now echo President 
Kennedy's stirring call to America 
to “pay any price, bear any 



Where will the

take America? 


burden ... to assure the survival 
and success of liberty” 

It is a conservative Republican 
administration that preaches an 
interventionist message, seeking 
to convince the United Nations of 
the need to support anti-com- 
munist insurgencies in Afghani- 
stan, Cambodia, Angola, Ethiopia 
and Nicaragua. And it is the 
liberals who have retreated into a 
neo-isolationism which not only 
condemns the Kennedy and John- 
son policies in Vietnam but insists 
that America must never again 
over-commit itself abroad. 

There is an historical irony in 
the argument now used by the 
New Right about moral leader- 
ship, the contention that “Amer- 
ica is the home of the democratic 
revolution, and our foreign policy 
only makes sense if it accurately 
reflects the internal nature of the 
American experiment". For it was 
for years the Democrats who 
championed liberal international- 
ism. From Roosevelt to Lyndon 
Johnson, US foreign policy was 
dominated by the vision of an 
activist, interventionist America, 
aiming to promote freedom and 
world order through international 
institutions such as the UN and 
anti-communist alliances. 

• And even after Vietnam de- 
stroyed the will for physical 
intervention, the last gasp of this 
vision, Jimmy Carter’s human- 
rights pplicy, preached moral 
intervention with rhetorical alle- 
giance to universalis! ends. 

Conservatives, on the other 
hand, had always been the back- 
bone of pre-war isolationism, the 
wish to avoid foreign entangle- 
ment. to retreat into “fortress 
America". Conservatives had al- 


ways been more inclined to Real- 
politik, to worry less about sons- 
of-bitches “so long as they are our 
sons-of-bitches”. The last gasp of 
this foreign policy was the prag- 
matism of Henry Kissinger, 
who — at least while in office - 
was more interested in construct- 
ing a Menem ichian framework 
that was to America’s advantage 
than in looking too closely at the 
values of those countries on which 
these relationships rested. 

Now much of this has changed. 
To the New Right and the 
Reaganite conservative, Kiss- 
inger's world view is anathema, 
not so much because be tolerated 
extreme right-wing allies (the Rea- 
gan administration has been 
equally happy to tolerate 
authoritarian regimes in South 
Korea. Pakistan and, until re- 
cently, the Philippines), but be- 
cause he put pragmatism above 
ideology and was not interested in 
a moral crusade against com- 
munism. 

The conservatives are now the 
ones preaching liberation philos- 
ophy and extolling “freedom 
fighters”, but it is liberation from 
Marxism, not from other forms of 
poverty or oppression. 

Meanwhile the old centrist lib- 
erals, those who long dominated 
the foreign policy establishment, 
have taken up the cudgels against 
the conservatives, using language 
that sounds more like Kissinger 
realism than liberalism. George 
Kennan. the grand old man of 
American diplomacy who first 
outlined the doctrine of contain- 
ment 40 years ago, returned to his 
forum in Foreign Affairs recently 
to denounce the penchant for 
playing the moral policeman

Anderson: thought he 
had nothing to fear j 

Beirut 

A year ago this weekend, Terry 
Anderson, the Beirut bureau chief 
of the Associated Press news 
agency, went to play tennis with 
his friend Don Mell on the hard 
court just behind his home on the 
Beirut seafront. 

Parking outside MelTs house 
afterwards. Anderson, still in his 
tennis clothes, was dragged from 
bis car by armed men, bis specta- 
cles falling into the road as he was 
pushed into the back seat of a 
green Mercedes whose rear win- 
dow was obscured by a thick 
curtain. He has been a prisoner 
ever since, allowed to write only 
briefly to the outside world last 
November. In the letter home, he 
spoke emotionally of how he 
looked forward to a family re- 
union on his release - “Dad. Peg. 
Bruce, Jack and Judy — all the 
grandkids we could gather. Such 
joy that would be.” 

But Terry Anderson's father 
Glenn, a retired truck driver, died 
of cancer last month. So for as 
anyone knows. Terry still thinks 
that the plucky old man who 
visited him in Beirut in the 
summer of 1983 is still alive. 

Indeed time seems to have 
stood still since that moment, not 
long after 8 o'clock on March 16 
last year, when Anderson disap- 
■ pea red. For his kidnap changed 
the lives of his friends and 
relatives, persuaded dozens of 
western journalists to abandon 
their homes in Lebanon and 
ultimately, stifled the free flow of 
news from one of the world's most 
confused and tragic conflicts. 

Those who believed that 
Andoson’s abduction was unique, 
a rare assault on the community of 
foreign journalists in Lebanon, 
were to be cruelly disillusioned 
The portents had been around for 
’ a Iona time. Jeremy Levin, bureau 
chiefof the American Cable News 
Network, had been kidnapped in 
March 1984 but turned up in 
Baalbek a year later and described 
how he had escaped from his

captors after spending months 
chained to a radiator in solitary 
confinement Jonathan Wright, a 
Reuters correspondent in Beirut, 
had spent a grim two weeks in 
August 1984 in the hands of 
gunmen from whom he escaped 
by crawling through a chimney. 

But it was Anderson's disap- 
pearance which started the shock 
waves. A tough, cheerful, over- 
weight man who had shown great 
courage covering Israel's invasion 
of Lebanon in 1 982. he was one of 
those people who seemed some- 
how invincible. Every morning, 
unaccompanied, he cheerfully 
walked his dog along the Beirut 
sea from. He had no reason to be 
frightened because he had made 
no enemies in Lebanon. If Terry 
Anderson could be abductod, then 
no one was safe. 

Indeed, only nine days later, 
Alec Collett, a British freelance 
writer working with the United 
Nations, was taken from his tar by 
gunmen at Khalde just south of 
Beirut. He has been seen only 
twice since then, on a grainy video 
film appealing for his life and 
asking for the release of Palestin- 
ians imprisoned in Britain. Two 
months afterwards, Jean-Paul 
Kauffinann, a French journalist 
working for VEvenenmt du Jeudi, 
was kidnapped on the airport road 
in Beirut. His colleague, a re- 
searcher named Michel Seurat, 
was taken with him; it was Seurat 
whose “execution” was an- 
nounced by his Lebanese kidnap- 
pers last week. 

In June. 1985, Lebanese gun- 
men kidnapped Alfred Yagoub- 
zadeh, an Iranian photographer 
living in France who works for the 
French Sipa news agency. He was 
released after 50 days of captivity. 


But two weeks ago an entire four- 
man French film crew was abduct- 
ed in the Shia Muslim suburbs of 
south Beirut after filming a rally of 
militant Hezbollah (Party of God) 
members. Like Anderson’s abduc- 
tion, the kidnappings were all the 
more frightening since the televi- 
sion reporter, Phillipe Rochot, is 
an old Beirut hand, a fluent Arabic 
speaker who, besides being an 
excellent journalist, has many 
goad friends among the liny press 
corps still left in Lebanon. 

The groups responsible for all 
these abductions are not difficult 
to identity. The pro-Iranian Islam- 
ic Jihad movement, which has 
strong links with the Iraqi opposi- 
tion Daawa party, claims to hold 
Anderson and Kauffinann, and it 
was responsible for Levin’s abduc- 
tion. It i$ demanding the release of 
17 Iraqis and Lebanese impris- 
oned in Kuwait for bombing the 
French and US embassies there in 
1983. 

The extremist Palestinian Abu 
Nidal faction is holding Collett 
(probably in Sidon) and was 
almost certainly responsible lor 
Wright's abduction. Yagoub- 
zadeh's captors made no demands 
but there seems little doubt that 
they were members of the 
Hezbollah- perhaps the same 
men who have been holding the 
French film crew; Islamic Jihad 
has denied being involved. 

For journalists, and for every- 
one around the world who wants 
to read and hear the truth about 
Lebanon, the real significance of 
these abductions is that the foreign 
press here is now in greater danger 
than ever. Because they are un- 
armed, journalists are the softest 
taigets. But they are also the only 
neutral witnesses to a conflict in 


Mr Fixit the 
budget fudger 


He said America confused 
morality with self-interest, pursu- 
ing over-ambitious foreign and 
military policies that left it over- 
stretched and unable to make use 
of its diminishing resources. The 
first step on the path of morality 
was the recognition of the gap 
between American dreams and 
their realization. 

The labels “interventionist” 
and “isolationist” have become 
thoroughly ■ confused, and the 
debate today is not always consis- 
tent. Arguments on what serves 
America's national interest or 
where these interests lie have been 
mixed up with ideological postur- 
ings. Each side accuses the other of 
naivety. And on some issues, 
other considerations muddy the 
waters: attitudes on intervention 
in Lebanon, for example, were 
determined by Washington's dose 
ties with Israel. 

Mrs Jeane Kirkpatrick, a pillar 
of the New Right, won Reagan’s 
admiration by championing 
authoritarian regimes over com- 
munist ones as being the lesser of 
two evils. But neither her policies 
towards Argentina in the Faflk- 
lands war nor her vigorous es- 
pousal — until the last moment — 
of Fe rdinand Marcos influenced 
the Reagan administration. 

Even within the administration 
the battle between ideologists and 
pragmatists continues. On some 
key issues the classic roles of the 
Pentagon and the State Depart- 
ment have been reversed: George 
Shultz, the Secretary of State, is 
the hawk on intervening to take 
action against terrorism, while 
Caspar Weinberger, the visceraily 
anti-Soviet Defence Secretary, has 
proved very cautious about 
committing American military 
forces anywhere. 

President Reagan has not yet 
publidy entered the debate, or 
given his blessing to the new 
doctrine named after him. Nor 
have his supporters thoroughly 
defined the synthesis it purports to 
make of the traditional policies of 
left and right. But in this state of 
flux, American foreign policy is 
still evolving. Such a policies 
cannot yet be called a “doctrine”. 


As the evenings lengthen and the 
chill light of an eariy Easter is 
suddenly visible after the harsh 
February, the season of council 
rate-setting draws to a dose. This 
week and next the last few 
borough councils, amid a flurry of 
last-minute amendments and a 
salvo of ritual demmeiatons of 
This Tory Government, will shake 
the figures together one final time,- 
find they suddenly, miraculously 
add up, and vote through the 
budget The finance officers will 
wipe the sweat from their brows, 
dose their voluminous fifes and 
leave the chamber noth a lighter 
step: another intricate and diffi- 
cult operation safely performed, 
and the patient still alive. 

The ritual that has developed 
around setting a rale in the high- 
spending rate-capped councils 
does in feet follow, in primeval 
fashi on, the mood of the seasons. 
The government announces the 
limit for the following year’s rate 
in high summer. To begin with it 
is treated with derision and mock- 
ery. As autumn draws on, fog and 
gloom swiri around the calcula- 
tions and by mid-winter the 
picture is thoroughly bleak. Yawn- 
ing gaps are identified. The 
government's Unfit is found to be 
appaltingty inadequate. Long lists 
of cuts are prepared. The finance 
officer demonstrates how disaster 
stares the council in the face, with 
huge losses of jobs and services. 
Armed with these figures, deputa- 
tions confront government min. 
isters. A big campaign is mounted, 
with banners on every council 
dust-cart* Fight rate-capping! 
Rate-capping hurts! 

But come the spring, the figures 
subtly change. The balances are 
suddenly laxger than could ever 
have been anticipated, a most 
fortuitous underspend appears in 
the accounts, inflation can he 
calculated in a different way, 
win dfalls that have miraculously 
survived the winter appear from 
under the snow. All sorts of 
manoeuvres known as “financing 
mechanisms” are introduced 
which shift sums of money from 
one column to another. And hey 
presto! The same amount of 
Spending can somehow be covered 
by a lower income. No cuts in jobs 
and services! A victory for the 
campaign of resistance! - 

The finance officers who per- 
form these yearly miracles are a 
remarkable new breed possessing 
two characteristics seldom en- 
countered in combination: they 
are committed public servants and 
financial manipulators of the 
highest order. 

In the game of outwitting the 
enemy they are always one step 
ahead. A story is circulating about 
a conversation between one bor- 
ough finance officer and the 
District Auditor. “Two years ago 
your budget was a fudge," said the 
District Auditor. “Last year it was 
an outrageous fudge. There’s no 
way you can do it again this year.” 
“Oh yes I can.” said the finance 
officer, and he has. 

Having watched all this 


great respect for the officers’ skills 
and a feeling of having lost contact 
with reality. What actually is going 

on? I would be ashamed to ask 
wen it not for the feet that 
practically everybody else is in the 
!CTTT>e predicament DoE officials, 
local govern m ent journalists, the 
academic experts — all are con- 
fused. Wffi aU these councils come 
down to earth with a bump and 
run out of money after the May 
elections? Are the budgets really 
cosmetically disguised deficit bud- 
gets? Or havethe magicians in feet 
discovered aurum potabildl 

On the assumption, however, 
that there are no supernatural 
agencies at work, it is probably 
s afe to make two predictions. The 
first is that a day of reckoning will 
come and, to be fair, the finance 
officers themselves have been 
sounding warnings. The creative 
accountancy that enables present 
jobs and services to survive 
untouched depends more and 
more on mortgaging the future, as 
capital is coaverted to. revenue, 
assets are sold off and ingenious 
borrowing leasing arrange- 
ments are embarked upon. It is 
said that at least one London 
borough will be unable to pay its 
debts in three years' time. Its 
councillors hope that a _ future 
Labour government will indem- 
nity it 

The other prediction is that the 
public comprehension of what is 
png on will be so totally eroded 
as to make local democracy 
meaningless. Already elected 
members themselves don’t under- 
stand it The Labour leaders rely 
on their officers to pull rabbits out 
of die hat, and their backbenchers 

are kept happy if, on the left, tbqr 

can go on chanting “No cuts in 
jobs and services’ 7 ' and, at the 
more moderate end, they have a 
counsel's opinion telling them it is 
all legal. On the opposition 
benches there is growing suspicion 
as caicniptirnix change from one 
month to the next 

As for the public outside, half of 
them think the cuts have’ already 
happened. 1 have been struck 
recently, talking to people on 
council estates, at the growing 
number talking fearfully about 
having to find the money to send 
their children to private schools. 
Some mention the teachers’ dis- 
pute, but even more the “huge 
classes — the teachers just can’t 
cope any more . . .” And this in an 
education authority where the 
pupil-teacher ratio a the lowest in 
the country and better than it has 
ever been! 

But nothing these days seems to 
produce the intended result. The 
Campaign against the Cuts under- ■ 
mines confidence in the public 
sector. The rate-capping legisla- 
tion encourages extreme prof- 
ligacy. The municipal socialists 
turn into the greatest asset-strip- 
pers of all time, it is a crazy world, 
where mere mortals look to those 
with special powers like our 
financial wizards to lead them 
blindfold out of the maze.

which truth is ever more difficult 
to discover. Today only 17 west- 
ern journalists are permanently 
based in Beirut compared with 
more than 70 two years ago. 

The effects have been obvious. 
First-hand reporting of the war in 
Lebanon — especially the effects 
on the victims — has become 
largely confined to a few European 
newspapers ; every American cor- 
respondent has left. There are few 
reporters left to travel to the Bekaa 
valley to report on what the Syrian 
army of occupation is doing; there 
are equally few available to travel 
to southern Lebanon to report on 
the dangerous new guerrilla war 
there and on Israel's increasingly 
bloody incursions from its occu- 
pation zone. 

Ironically, the Israelis have been 
trying to keep western journalists 
in Beirut from witnessing their 
occupation for the past 18 months; 
Lebanese and Palestinian gunmen 
have now almost achieved what 
the Israelis could never have 
hoped for much of the war in 
southern Lebanon is now reported 
only from Jerusalem, where corre- 
spondents are in no danger of 
being kidnapped. 

Against the human disasters 
that occur in Lebanon every day, 
the plight of journalists may not 
seem to matter greatly. Up to 
100,000 Lebanese may have died 
in the fighting of the past 1 1 years; 
thousands of Lebanese have been 
kidnapped and subsequently mur- 
dered. Forty-seven foreigners 
have been abducted in the past 27 
months. Twenty-six have been 
released; five have been reported 
killed. 

Most of the reporters who have 
died here were chance victims of a 
war they were trying to record. But 
the kidnappings have addeda new 
dimension to the business of 
reporting. For the sad anniversary 
of Anderson's kidnapping illumi- 
nates a tragic fact; that fewer 
people will hear the truth about 
Lebanon because there are ever 
fewer journalists to report it 


The whole of June will be filled

A Month in the Contras: How 
would you like to defend democ- 
racy for four exerting weeks in the 
foot hills of Nicaragua? You 
wouldn’t like to defend democ- 
racy? Well how would you like a 
bit of looting and village-burning, 
which is much the same thing? Get 
away from it afl in this wild but 
beautiful country, far from the 
nearest TV set mid sports maga- 
zine. And the beauty of it is - we 
pay you to go! Yes, Ronald 
Reagan himself is laying on milt 
ions of dollars for you to be there. 
Why? Well apparently he thinks 
that Nicaragua is going to invade 

the USA, and wen, it's very 

complicated. 

A Welsh Painting Holiday: Did 
you know that Wales badly needs 
painting? Yes, most of the houses 
are peeling and many haven't been 
painted at all; this is a result of the 
rich musical talent of the Welsh, 
which did not leave room for any 
visual sense at alL We urgently 
need volunteers who would tike an 
open-air holiday, lots of activity, 
far from the big city. And here's 
the bonus; of all the UK countries, 
Wales was the only one to be 
knocked out of the World Cup (by 
Scotland, as usual), so they won't 
be very interested in whats going 
on in Mexico and wouldn’t talk 
about it even if you begged them. 
Grand Tour Cruise (No Ports of 
Call): One of the nice things about 
a cruise is calling at a foreign port 
and bring approached by a 
friendly native with something to 
sell — Jeaihmvare, perhaps, or his 
aster. But what if he comes up to 
you and says: “Hey. did you hear 
that Brazil beat Italy in the semi- 
finals?” Well there’s no danger of 
that on our special cruise, which 


calls nowhere, just sails round the 
Med for a month.it will be like a 
long, wonderful party, at which 
nobody present is interested in 
football! 

The Old Spaghetti Road: Every- 
one knows about the Silk Road. * 
the old trading route between 
China and the West. But have you 
heard about the Old Spaghetti 
Road? Lqgend has it that noodles 
from China were the basis for 
modern Italian pasta. We trace the 
ancient track across Iraq and Iran 
until h peters out near Afghani- 
stan. That's right, peters out! 
Because there is no truth in the old 
legend about noodles from China. 

But by the time you find that out. 
the World Cup will be over. 

The Ascent of K59a: Did you 
know that K59a is the lowest 
unclimbed peak in the Himalayas? 
Yes, that's right, the lowest. At 
only 1 1,000 feet ft still has not & 
been climbed by any known 
expedition, not because it is 
difficult but because it is so bo ring 
It is surrounded by nine other 
peaks, all identical and so feature- 
less that none of them has been 
climbed either. The native name 
for K59a is “Mountain which is so 
dreary that not even an English- 
man will climb it”, and they don’t 
come drearier than that, h will 
take about a month to get up and 
down. But boring though it may 
be, it beats watching Poland and 
Scotland kick each other’s ankles. 
Foot Weeks . Anywhere in the 
United States: The country di.£ 
reetty across the border from 
Mexico is probably the safest place 
to be in June, because the Ameri- 
cans have absolutely no interest in 
soccer. There was a short-lived 
soccer boom the other year, but it 
didn’t last The only games which 
are ever popular in America have 
to feature very short burets of 
activity separated by long periods 
of rest; this is essential to put them 
on TV, where they need most- of 
the lime for commercials, spon- j* 
sors, interviews with celebrities. - 
slow motion reruns and so on. 
Soccer flows on for long periods,

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR 


Implication of wider role for MSC Damages threat 

Sir, As a recently retired principal From the Director of the Man - ^5 PatieDt L8ICJ 


win taxes in straitened 
circumstances. The “consid- 
ered and justified” tax reduc- 
tions promised, if not 
quantified, only four months 
po have •. been scaled down, 
rallmg oil revenues have in- 
duced them to s omething even 

more modest. 

Yet this Budget is strate- 
gically of great importance to 
the Government It is, for a 
start, the occasion on which 
Mr Nigel Lawson must remake 
his somewhat uncertain 
reputation as Chancellor. His 
first Budget excited hopes of 
radical tax reform, which were 
defeated by a mixture of 
political pressures and 
squeezed finances. His second 
Budget was, in considerable 
pat, the admission of that 
defeat In his third, mid-term 
Budget he has to re-establish a 
jsense of direction. , 

Tomorrow’s budget has to 
be a practical exposition of the 
ChanceDor’s economic strat- 
egy. This strategy, or philos- 
ophy, boils down to stability in 
the large numbers, designed to 
vanquish inflation and foster 
growth; combined with “sup- 
ply-side” changes designed to 
stimulate industry’s response 
to the changed economic cli- 
mate. 

“Popular capitalism”, the 
involvement of more people in 
the fortunes of business, is 
only one weapon in the micro- 
economic armoury of goads to 
industry on which Mr Lawson 
must chaw tomorrow. These 
stimuli are, as the Chancellor 
himself is fond of pointing out, 
mostly slow-acting. This, then, 
is the last Budget in which Mr 
Lawson can hope to foster 
change that will yield results 
before a 1988 election. For a 
Chancellor who is leading us 
proudly into the sixth 


successive year of economic 
growth, but has still failed to 
turn the tide of unemploy- 
ment, it is a a moment of some 
importance. 

There, is a farther sense in 
which Mr Lawson is on trial. 
His management of those large 
numbers. - for public spending 
or monetary growth - has been 
questioned by the financ i a l 
markets more than once dur- 
ing his time as Chancellor. His 
reputation for effective 
management fan to a low level 
with last year’s sterling crisis. 

This year, he has been tested 
in the fierce heat of turbulent 
oil and currency markets, and 
. at first his response seemed 
uncertain. But he has weath- 
ered the .latest fall in the oil 
price, to levels only half those 
ruling a few months ago, with 
only one rise in interest rates. 
The markets now confidently 
expect that rise to be reversed. 

- Lower interest rates, to- 
gether with the prospect of still 
lower inflation, have been 
induced largely ;by changes in 
the world outside. But the 
speed of the fall in oil prices 
imposed a severe test on the - 
Chancellor; it is to his credit 
that its positive longer-term 
benefits have not been over- 
shadowed by. short-term diffi- 
culties. The pound is volatile, 
but not in a state of collapse. 
Its rate against the dollar yo- 
yos around the figures that 
prevailed last autumn; its fall 
against European currencies 
has bred new hope of export- 
ing success in industry. 

From the confusion of sig- 
nals that come out of the latest 
surge in share prices, it is fair 
TO extractat least a temporary 
vote of confidence. Mr . 
Lawson’s third Budget must 
consolidate this pin in his 
reputation. One essential is 
obvious: caution in public 
borrowing, keeping dose to his 
original target for 1986-87, 
making only minor adjust- 


ment for falling oil revenues. 
He faces, however, a harder 
task with his monetary frame- 
work. 

Forecasting the money 
numbers is still too uncertain a 
business for the Chancellor's 
new targets to be greeted with 
much confidence. Mr Lawson 
is seeking to demonstrate dog- 
ged financial rectitude by 
sticking with his original broad 
. definition of money - sterling 
M3 - and using the painful 
weapon of high interest nates 
to control it, rather than the 
soft option of selling an un 
necessary amount of govern- 
ment debt But the past year’s 
sterling M3 target was casually 
abandoned when it became 
inconvenient; even if the new 
limit is set at more realistic 
heights, there will be plenty in 
the City who will doubt Mr 
Lawson's commitment to it 

It has become obvious that 
Mr Lawson could benefit from 
a further boost in confidence if 
there were now to be a smooth 
entry to the European Mone- 
tary System. The financial 
markets have demonstrated 
their desire for a set of targets 
which depend hot just on the 
whim of the Chancellor but on 
international commitments , 
which are so much harder to 
break. Without them, confi- 
dence wQl depend heavily on Mr 
Lawson's reputation. 

That, of course, is not 
merely a personal matter. The 
Government’s struggle to re- 
gain national confidence after 
the recent succession of self- 
induced disasters also hangs 
heavily on a successful Budget 
On the economic front, the 
Government's flank is guarded 
by a very new Trade and 
Industry Secretary, with a full 
agenda and a fearful inher- 
itance. Mr Lawson, now with 
many years of Treasury experi- 
ence behind him, has to take 
the lead. Tomorrow is his 
greatest political test 


AID FOR THE CONTRAS 


The Washipgtoi^ ^easqu for 
argument aboutaitfto the 
Contra rebels in Nicaragua has 
come around- aga i n . On 
Wednesday Congress votes on 
whether to extend a sum of 
SI 00 million to the Contras, 
$70 million of it in military 
assistance. 

Since the US firet sent help 
to the Contras more than four 
4 years ago, the rebellion has had 
an effect. It has helped reduce 
the Nicaraguan econorpy to its 
present straits, and forced the 
Sandinista Government to 
spend half its budget on de- 
fence. It has led to conscrip- 
tion. the single most 
unpopular measure in- 
troduced by the Sandinistas. It 
also forced the elections of 
November 1984, which were 
motivated more by the. gov- 
ernment's need for inter- 
national support than by any 
genuinely pluralistic convic- 
tions. 

Contra “leverage” and 
i relentless diplomatic pressure 
from the United States have 
put die regime on the defen- 
sive. The Sandinistas no 
longer dream in public of 
acting as the vanguard - of a 
Central American revolution. 
And they have changed their 

Change of arms 

From A fr Hugh Peskett 
Sir, Being a Celt, with both British 
and Irish citizenship. largely Scot 
and part Cornish. Mr Philip 
Blake’s tetter (March 10) offends 
me with its second word, using 
England when surely he means 
Britain. Indeed, throughout his 
teller he appears to confuse En- 
gland. Britain, and the United 
Kingdom. 

Nineteen tweniy-two is a wrong 
date, for Ireland had a Govemor- 

- General representing the Crown 
until 1936 and left the Common- 

• wealth in 1949. And when .Mr 
Blake talks of Ulster, does he 
mean the six counties of Northern 

- Ireland, forgetting that three of the 
nine counties of the Province of 
Ulster (whose arms Mr Blake 
would have quartered by the 
Crown) are within the Republic? 

Apart from offending the 
Ulstermen of Cavan, Monaghan 
and Donegal this would raise a 
fascinating problem of heraldic 
jurisdiction. Garter King of Arms 
is. by his patent. “King of English 
Arms’*. In Scotland, Lord Lyon 
King of Arms stands in the place 
of the Sovereign in armorml- 

jurisdkuion, but whai (rflrefand? 

In Dublin the Chief Herald of 
Ireland fulfils the function and 
controls the records of the former 

- Ulster Kings of .Arms, and claims 

• jurisdiction over all the 32 coun- 

ties of Ireland, white in Lonaon, 
Norroy King of Arms has .L ot 0 ' 
.added to his style and claims 
jurisdiction over the six counties. 
Who controls the arms of ft* »ae- 
counly Province of Ulster? Does 
the Anglo-Irish Agreement cover 
the point? . . - • 

We hare precedent *or 


policy towards the Miskito 
Indian regions of the Atlantic 
Coast Moreover, although the 
regime remains pro-Soviet and 
there are stiff several thousand 
Cuban and Eastern Bloc advis- 
ers in Nicaragua, the country is 
not yet a totalitarian satellite. 
There is stiff a sizeable private 
sector in the economy, a vocal, 
• if censored, opposition, and 
much moral authority has, 
Polish fashion, passed into the 
hands of the more conser- 
vative elements of the Catholic 
-Church. 

The United States has 
succeeded in unmasking 
Sandinismo’s alignment with 
Cuba and the Soviet Union, 
- also its desire to perpetuate 
itself in power. All this has 
undoubtedly reduced its ap- 
peal in the region to its present 
negligible level. Now the Rea- 
gan Administration is repeat- 
ing the arguments of Dr 
Kissinger’s bi-partisan Central 
American report that without 
power, diplomacy has no 
leverage, and asking Congress 
to authorise further help. 

.. Behind the President’s 
thinking may be the calcula- 
tion that increased aid to the 
Contras will produce a 
successful counter-revolution. 

laissez-faire. The British royal 
arms continued to quarter those of 
France until 1801, reflecting the 
14 th-century claim to that throne. 
On that test we should leave 
Ireland there for another three 
centuries. None the less, Mr Blake 
is surely right that Wales and 
Cornwall should be represented in 
the royal arms.

Education vouchers 

From Professor Alan Day 
Sir. Your argument (leading arti- 
cle. March 4) that choice of 
education through vouchers is a 
“peripheral issue of mechanisms 
of middle class parents’ choice of 
school” appears to be based on the 
view that it is inappropriate or 
unimportant for working dass 
parents to choose their childrens’ 
schools. 

The case of choice applies 
irrespective of class. Indeed, it is 
arguably more important for the 
working class, who do not have 
the middle class option of scrimp- 
ing and saving in order to buy 
private education. 

Nor is the case for vouchers 
upset by your view that parents 
are not the, sole consumers of 
education and are not a full proxy 
for employers and others who 
receive the products of schools. 
Parents' who are free to choose . 
which schools -their children at- 
tend can be expected to try to give 
them the best possible life chance. 

All other things being equal the 
implies that the parents will try to 


If so, it is probably misguided. 
The mechanisms of leverage 
are not so simple. The Contras 
themselves are divided, and 
likely to remain so. Much of 
their leadership has no demo- 
cratic appeal and holds out no 
prospects of a democratic fu- 
ture. They have no urban 
support, and although at 
around 20,000 they are the 
largest guerrilla group in Cen- 
tral America, they are by no 
means the most effective. 
Their numbers are swollen by 
those seeking to avoid 
conscription — not the best 
military motive — and much of 
the money sent to them in the 
past is rumoured never to have 
got through. Washington’s 
support for the Contras also 
creates problems for the US 
elsewhere in Central and Latin 
America, where it arouses 
deep suspicion. 

For all that, the blunt in- 
strument of the Contras has 
contained the Nicaraguan 
revolution and to some extent 
altered its direction. Congress | 
need not approve the full $100 
milli on on Wednesday. There 
are conditions it may want to 
attach to any further aid. But it 
should certainly not vote to 
abandon them. 

maximize their childrens’ poten- 
tial earning power. By doing so, 
they would provide employee 
with the skilled and adaptable 
labour force they require. 

Too many professional educa- 
tionalists have developed such a 
degree of confidence in the 
correctness of their own judg- 
ments on society, which they then 
succeed in imposing on others, 
that they then come to lose sight of 
an understanding of individual 
liberty. 

Yours faithfully,

Finding a fake 

From Mr Christopher Edwards 
Sir, One may sympathise with Mr 
Chainey (March 22) in his distaste 
for the sudden changes in opinion 
which make paintings “worth” 
less or more, depending on which 
scholar’s new prevails. Neverthe- 
less, he should remember that 
pictures are not only objects for 
aesthetic appreciation — they are 
also historical evidence. 

.. Each painting by an artist forms 
pan of the scholar’s view of his 
work, and if it can be shown that 
one painting previously assigned 
to his hand was not painted by 
him, our appreciation of all his 
other woric must be altered, how- 
ever slightly. Considerations of 
how much the painting is restored 
or bow much painted by assistants 
may change the.force of this point, 
but do not undermine it al- 
together. 

Yours faithfully, 

CHRISTOPHER EDWARDS,

From Mr W. J. Cotierell 
Sir, As a recently retired principal 
of a further education college, it is 
not surprising that I should agree 
with the assertion in yesterday's 
leader (March 4) that farther 
education is arguably the most 
important sector of educational 
provision. However. I regard your 
adulation of the Manpower Ser- 
vices Commission and the im- 
plication that the commission 
should have an even greater rote in 
this sector as a recipe for disaster. 

The expansion of training under 
the youth training schemes has 
certainly been very beneficial, but, 
given the vast sums allocated for 
the project, the MSC could hardly 
have failed to provide something 
worthwhile. None the less, there 
are many who believe that results 
at least as good could have been 
achieved for less, through the 
existing channels of the colleges 
and careers service or the dis- 
banded training boards, without 
the huge bureaucracy set up by the 
MSG itself the super “quango” of 
them all 

Undoubtedly, new approaches 
to further education are needed, 
but they must be built on firm 
foundations. The great weakness 
of the MSC is simply lack of 
experience, coupled with a ten- 
dency to take as narrow 
a“traming” approach as the DES 
traditionally has an “educational” 
one. Yet farther education 
representation is minimal on all 
the important committees of the 
MSC 

It is certainly high time for the 
artificial division between educa- 
tion and training to be removed; 
but if a new administration cover- 
ing both is to be set up it must not 
only be free from the shackles of 
conventional educational tra- 
ditions, but equally must also, at 
all costs, avoid being subservient 
to the MSC. 

Yours faithfully,

Moves to Rome 

From the General Secretary of the 
Intercontinental Church Society 
Sir, Edward Yarnold's most help- 
ill article about Angtican/Roman 
Catholic discussions (March 8) 
focuses on the one key point that 2 
and many other Anglican 
Evangelicals have sought an an- 
swer to for many years. Father 
Yantold is clear in his belief that 
unity with the Roman Catholic 
Church does not mean 
“absorption” by it! 

This is a point that, to the best 
of my knowledge, has never been 
conceded by the leaders of the 


positive way in which this would 
mean something is by the recog- 
I union of Anglican orders by the 
Roman Catholic Church. 

Ten years ago, when I was 
Director of the Church Society, we 
held two most worthwhile con- 
ferences at Wycliffe Hall Oxford, 
between Roman Catholics and 
Anglican Evangelicals (to which 
Fr Yamold was a contributor). It 
seems to me that in this country 
we are no farther advanced at this 
level of understanding than we 

Lost for words 

From Professor Michael J. French 
Sir, Mr Martin Blocksidge (March 
5) takes to task six professors of 
engineering who wrote about stan- 
dards of English among their 
students. He says that English 
language O-level examinations 
lest “the ability to use sophis- 
ticated and precise language”. 

Mr Blocksidge suggests that the 
verbal skills of students 
specialising in mathematics or 
science from the age of 16 must be 
expected to atrophy, but surely if 
the foundations had been properly 
laid that would not be so. Many 
mathematical and scientific texts 
are better written than school 
English textbooks, and these sub- 
jects lead to clear thinking, with- 
out which clear writing is 
impossible. 

He farther suggests that univer- 
sity departments make it “widely 
known that they would welcome 
students who had taken, along 
with their mathematics and sd- 


From the Director of the Man- 
power Services Commission 
Sir. Your first leader "Education’s 
consumers” on March 4 is righi to 
draw attention to the contribution 
which the Technical and Voca- 
tional Education Initiative (TVEI) 
is making to the development of 
the secondary school curriculum. 
However, your suggestion that 
TVEI is about courses for the 40 
per cent of 1 6-year-olds who leave 
school without qualifications is 
incorrect. 

All of the 74 education authori- 
ties who are running TVEI 
curriculum developments pro- 
grammes in some 500 schools and 
colleges in England, Scotland and 
Wales are required by the pub- 
lished aims of the initiative to 
“explore and test ways of 
organising and managing the 
education of 14-18 - year old” 
young people. 

They are also explicitly required 
to develop curricula in which 
there is a proper balance of general 
and technical education for stu- 
dents across the ability range 
including those seeking entry to 
higher education and those who 
will attain professional skills and 
qualifications through farther 
education combined with planned 
work experience. 

The object of the TVEI pQot 
schemes is to support education 
authorities, colleges and schools in 
developing curricula that are bet- 
ter adapted to the needs of young 
people approaching adult life and 
to do so with the intention that the 
lessons learned will be applied to 
all schools and colleges and avail- 
able to all students in the 14-1 8 age 
range.

were many years ago because there 
has been too much talk about the 
final “marriage" (to some a “shot- 
gun marriage") rather than a 
gradual courtship - so (hat in Fr 
Yarnold’s words, “they come 
progressively to understand and 
trust one another”. 

I find in my present work 
among Anglican Churches over- 
seas that in many parts of Europe 
and North Africa there is a greater 
sense of “walking out together” 
with the Roman Catholic Church 
than there is in England. This 
seems to stem from a real sense of 
mutual concern to work together

From Mr Kevin de Haan 
Sir. In order to meet the record 
settlement in the case of Caroline 
Turville (report, March II), the 
Wandsworth Health Authority 
will inevitably be obliged to divert 
precious resources away from the 
provision of patient care in its 
area. 

In the United States of America 
the high incidence of medical 
malpractice suits, frequently 
resulting in- massive awards of 
damages against doctors and hos- 
pitals, has threatened the very 
existence ofheaJth care facilities in 
some areas and put the lives of 
patients at risk. 

The response of many state 
legislatures to this crisis in the 
health care industry has been to 
introduce statutory arbitration 
and mediation schemes as a 
prerequisite to litigation before the 
ordinary courts in malpractice 
cases. 

These schemes operate to very 
strict time limits and are designed 
to encourage the early settlement 
of valid claims whilst eliminating 
those without meriLAs well as 
effecting a significant reduction in 
the number of cases going for trial 
the schemes have resulted in lower 
costs and greater expedition if 
cases do proceed through the 
courts. 

In an effort to avert a crisis in 
the provision of health care facil- 
ities in this country, should not 
serious consideration be given to 
the introduction of similar 
schemes here?

Trial by jury 

From Mr Clifford Jeans 
Sir. I see that after a recent trial at 
the Old Bailey (report. March 12) 
some jurors burst into tears, when 
having acquitted a defendant of 
murder they were told that he had 
previous convictions. I would 
have thought that it was very easy 
to know whether a defendant had 
a murky past although the jury is 
not supposed to take this into 
consideration in their delibera- 
tions. 

It is my experience, having sat 
on several juries, that if the 
defendant has a clean past record 
the defending counsel will make a 
big thing of this, and even if the 
defendant has pleaded guilty, 
counsel will say that the present 
position of the defendant is due to 
a temporary lapse of honesty. If, 
however, the defendant has a bad 


have lost what they once had. 

Perhaps we should stop talking 
about “marriage” and do as Fr 
Yarnold suggests, try to under- 
stand and mist each other's 
position. We may then be sur- 
prised by the Holy Spirit and the 
path ahead.

the Standing Conference on

will see that in the case of

come candidates so prepared, as I 
imagine do the six professors. 
How often do we see science and

that engineers value these sub-

Fuel profits 

From Mr David Fisher 
Sir, In the warmth of the coming 
summer you will probably report 
windfall (or snowfall) profits made 
by the gas and electricity boards, 
whose advertising tells us how 
well they have served us during 
the exceptionally cold winter. We 
might then consider the notion 
that this bonus revenue could 
have been applied to the relief of 
elderly and disabled consumers of 
energy, for whom the effects of the 
winter were equal and opposite. 

A fixed (high) percentage dis- 
count on the relevant quarterly 
bills for these groups would be 


Student benefits 

From the Secretary of Slate for 
Social Services 

Sir, Last Saturday's (March 8) 
“Family Money" article seriously 
misrepresented the Government's 
proposals for changing the entitle- 
ment of students to social security 
benefits- 1 would be grateful if you 
would allow me to correct the 
most serious errors. 

First, the article says that stu- 
dents will no longer be able to 
claim housing benefit and supple- 
mentary benefit during vactions. 
This is untrue. The proposals 
would remove entitlement to 
supplementary benefit and un- 
employment benefit in the short 
vactions only — Christmas and 
Easter - not the main long 
vacaction. 


more equitable, more humane and 
more certain of achieving the 
desired purpose than tardy and 
begrudged public welfare. 

Moreover, as the public utilities 
know from day to day exactly by 
what amount overall consump- 
tion exceeds The seasonal average 
— and can program their billing 
computers accordingly — there 
should be no difficulty in calculat- 
ing a discount rate proportional to 
the severity of the weather. 

Yours faithfully, 

DAVID FISHER,

The student grant already al- 
lows for living costs during these 
short vacations. It costs the DHSS 
some £2 million to pay out about 
£4 million worth of these benefits 
for these periods. 

Second, it was said that details 
of the housing benefit changes 
were unavailable. This is untrue. 
They were set out in a written 
parliamentary answer on Decem- 
ber 18. 1985; in Press releases on 
January 7. 1986. issued bv my 
department and by the Social 
Security Advisory Committee; in 
a consultation paper issued by the 
Social Security Advisory Commit- 
tee to anyone interested in seeing 
and commenting on the 
Government’s proposals. 

Third, and most important, the 
article said “All students will' lose 
all benefits by academic year 


very quiet on this point. 

My experience resulted in only a 
small sample, but it seemed to 
work every time.

Danger to birds 

From Dr Margaret Weldhen 
Sir. Readers who are bird lovers 
should beware of the danger of 
putting out balls made of fat and 
nuts which are encased in rather 
fine nylon mesh. 

These may turn out to be 
potential death traps for birds like 
tits which hang on to the nylon 
bags with their claws. As the bag 
begins to sag when the food is half 
eaten the birds can get their claws 
trapped in the fine mesh. 

1 had the shock of finding a 
blue-tit hanging by one leg. It had 
died, perhaps after hours of frantic 
struggling to free its claw, which 
had become so entangled that I 
had to cut out the body while its 
frantic mate looked on. 

When buying a holder for nuts 
and fat we should be sure to 
choose one which is not going to 
end up by being a death trap for 
the birds. Good old-fashioned 
string would be better than nylon 
mesh. 

Yours sincerely, 

MARGARET WELDHEN.

Meaningful terms 

From Mr D. B. Jenkin 
Sir. In his letter (March 10). the

48 per cent of travel agents in the 
USA have experienced visitor

unusual visitors from overseas, 
but never a postmarked Ameri- 
can.

1987/8S". This is also untrue, It is 
certainly the Government’s view 
that in' the long run it is not 
sensible that students should be 
subject to two separate but inter- 
twined systems of support - the 
grant system and social security. 
Indeed this view was endorsed in 
your leader of December 18 , 1985. 

However, the proposals on 
which we are consulting are very 
much more limited. Complete 
separation is not an immediate 
prospect and is certainly not 
intended for introduction in 
1987/88.

ON THIS DAY 


MARCH 17 1863 

“On This Day" returns to the 
American Civil War, not to the

to the evil effects always present in 
the wake of war. Our 
Correspondent was Charles

THE CIVIL WAR IN 
AMERICA 

(FROM OUR OWN 
CORRESPONDENT.) 

WASHINGTON, FEB .28. 

New York exhibits no outward 
signs of the war and desolation that 
afflict, the land. Washington, on 
the contrary, betrays them at every 
turn. The long stragglng Avenues, 
planned in a spirit of magnificence, 
but so meanly executed, s w a rm 
with soldiers, camp followers, for- 
age wa gg ons, amb iil a n reffi . find all 
the aids, instruments, and para- 
phernalia of strife. Thousands of 
young men in gray-blue uniforms, 
swagger about the streets or lounge 
at the doors of the hotels, with the 
fresh jauntiness of the inexperi- 
ence that has never yet confronted 
a foe; while mingled among them, 
at intervals painfully frequent, are 
to be seen the luckless veterans of 
the struggle— the men who can 
fight no more, the maimed and 
mutilated victims of “glory” and 
“patriotism”, limping along on 
crutches, and turning their sunken 
eyes towards the by-passers with e 
piteous expression of countenance, 
as if to crave the sympathy of all 
who are still in the enjoyment of 
their limbs and faculties. The mud 
in all the main Avenues is ankle- 
deep. for there has been a heavy fall 
of snow, six inches thick, that only 
fay one day upon the ground before 
it began to yield to the fervid rays 
of a summer-like sun and the 
breath of of a wind as warm, if not 
as balmy, as that of an English 
June. Through the rivers and lakes 
of slush pass and repass at all hours 
of the day and night immense 
droves of cattle, as many as 4,000 
or 5,000 at a time, some going into 
Virginia for the use of the Army of 
the Potomac, and some destined 
for the consumption of the 60.000 
men retained for the defence of the 
capital, together with an almost 
continuous procession of supply 
and forage waggons, each drawn by 
six mules, and driven by a negro or 
an Irisb teamster, shouting and 
swearing as he goes. On any 
ordinary roads in England or in 
Europe, two mules would be amply 
sufficient for any vehicle of the 
kind, however heavily laden, but in 
the deep, greasy, tenacious mud of 
this region, six are none too many 
for the task they have to perform. 
Never, perhaps, in any city of the 
world was so much horse and mule 
flesh to be seen as in Washington 
at this moment, and such miser- 
able horseflesh never enriched a 
mob of contractors, or impover- 
ished a nation. The soldiers are for 
the most part as rough and shaggy 
as the mules. Raw lads of IS and 20 
for the bulk of the army that 
defends Washington against the 
imminent aggression of General 
Lee. These youths revel and riot in 
their premature manhood, and 
exhibit their exuberant strength 
and insolence in drunken and other 
orgies that seem to have no limits 
but their purses. To inveigle the 
“greenbacks" out of their pockets 
and those of their officers a whole 
army of brazen courtesans and 
“painted Jezebels" has invaded the 
city, who ply their trade by 
advertisement in the newspapers 
and by public exhibition in the 
streets after a fashion so gross that 
it would shame even the 
Haymarket. The places where they 
have congregated have received the 
name new to American slang, and 
peculiar to Washington, of 
"Ranches”, a word that in Texas 
signifies an enclosure for cattle. 
The "Ranches" of Madame This or 
That are as openly conducted as 
the hotels or boarding- houses, and 
the Provost Marshal and his 
officials make little or no effort to 
interfere with them. At every 
street, corner, and place of public 
resort are to be seen printed 
notices, warning simple-minded 
strangers against the multitudi- 
nous thieves who have congregated 
here from all parts of the world. . . 
Another dass of thieves, not so 
designated in polite society, but 
worthy of the name— the people 
who sell the Government rotten 
and unseaworthy steamboats for 
the conveyance of troops and 
stores: shoes for the army, that 
wear out in one day's march: and 
shoddy garments, nether and up- 
per. that rot like blotting paper in a 
shower of rain: the “respectable” 
people who plunder under form of 
law and with the decent obser- 
vances of trade, feed daily at 
Willards and other public places, 
and make themselves conspicuous 
by magnums of claret and cham- 
pagne which they consume, and by 
the general loudness of their talk 
and behaviour. 


Keeping out the cold 

From Mr Arnold Freedman 
Sir, I was greatly intrigued to read 
the letter of March 6 about 
keeping warm in Japan, as the 
peasants of Iran use almost pre- 
cisely the same method. They sink 
an earthenware pot in the ground 
of their living room, fill it with 
burning charcoal and cover it with 
a rug draped over a low. wooden 
tabic. They con then sit with their 
legs under the rug. and take their 
meals off the table in the greatest 
comfort. 

Their name for this arrange- 
ment is a kttrsi. Mv Oxford 
dictionary tells me that our word 
"cosy " is of unknown derivation. 
I would suggest that it comes from 
ihe Persian. 

Yours faithfully.

Split looming over woman bishop 


I OBITUARY 
MARTIN 
COOPER 


The Bishop of London, Dr Graham 
Leonard,, has given the dearest 
indication so far that Anglican 
Church is faced with a formal split 
over the ordination of women. 

What has provoked him is the 
prospect of a woman bishop in the 
Episcopal Church in the United 
States. Speaking on his way to a 
meeting in America last week he 
described this eventuality as "the 
final straw**. 

He said:“One can live in the 
Anglican community with some 
provinces ordaining women priests. 1 
have done that for a while with some 
difficulty. But the implications of a 
woman bishopare very grave because 
one thing that holds the Anglican 
communion together is the 
episcopate'*. 

He was attending a meeting of the 
Foundation for Anglican Tradition 
Inc, which subsequently issued a 
statement signed by him. and by 18 
other bishops, some of whom belong 
to churches overseas which have 
broken with the mainstream Anglican 
Communion already because of this 
issue. It declared tnat the Anglican 
and Catholic faith "is not to be 
modified to suit passing fashion”. 

Meanwhile the primates of the 
Anglican Communion were meeting 
under the chairmanship of the Arch- 
bishop of Canterbury. Dr Robert 
Runcie, in Toronto. The Foundation 
for Anglican Tradition was evidently 
trying to send a frantic signal in that 
direction. 


The primates are discussing a 
decision of a majority of the bishops 
of the Episcopal Church in favour of 
consecrating the first woman -bishop, 
backed up by the declared intention 
of the Right Rev John Spoug, Bishop 
of Newark, New Jersey, to appoint a 
woman suffragan (assistant; bishop 
to his diocese m the near future. 

The primates have no authority to 
stop him, however. Until recently it 
had been generally expected that no 
woman bishop would be consecrated 
anywhere in the Anglican Commu- 
nion until at least 1988, when the 
Lambeth Conference in Canterbury 
would set a general policy. 

But the Episcopal Church in the 
United States is impatient to move to 
the next step after a decade of women 
priests, and jealous of its right to do 
so without waiting for a word from 
Canterbury. The Episcopal Church is 
also very wealthy, and well-represent- 
ed in powerful circles in the United 
States. 


It is not part of the ethos of such 
circles to worry over much about 
opinion overseas, particularly when 
the advancement of women in all 
walks of life is now supported by a 
general consensus in society. In any 
event the merits of the Episcopal 
Church's case, in theological terms, is 
very strong. If it is right to ordain 
women as priests it must also be right 
to ordain them as bishops too. 

Dr Runcie said after the Toronto 
meeting that the primates would be 
telling the Episcopal Church "of a 


number of serious anxieties, because 
the ordination of women to the 
episcopate - would have important 
consequences for the life of the wider 
Anglican family**. 

The Bishop of London is becoming 
a major headache for the church. He 
has already said that the ordination of 
women in the Church of England, 
currently under consideration by the 
general synod after a decision in 
principle, could lead to the formation 
ofa "continuing Church of England". 

This would lay claim to be the 
legitimate continuation of the present 
institution of that name, and the rest, 
by his theory, would have broken 
away. Just how large and what shape 
such a “continuing Church of 
England" would be, and: how; the 
courts would regard its claims,, is 
anyone’s guess. . *■ 

By no means all the opponents of 
the ordination of women in the 
Church of England would want to go 
down that path. Even among Anglo- 
Catholics, in general sympathy with 
Dr Leonard's churchman ship, some 
would stay in the main body, some 
would leave altogether for another 
church. 

There is a substantial element 
within Angl o-Catholicism whose 
objection is not precisely to the 
ordination of women as such, but to 
the Anglican Church acting indepen- 
dently of Rome and Greek Ortho- 
doxy. And there is a further element 
whose absolute priority is reunion 
between Rome and Canterbury, 
which is threatened by the ordination 


of women. None of those would 
welcome a Continuing Church of 
England 

The exact manner of a split in the 
Church of England, either over an 
American woman bishop or an 
English woman priest, is. still very 
uncertain. 

If an American woman bishop is 
summoned to Canterbury in 1988 to 
attend the Lambeth Conference, Dr 
Leonard would refuse to attend 
Logically he would have to regard 
those bishops who did attend as 
schismatic, which would put in 
-jeopardy his continuing participation 
in the House ofBishops of the Church 
of England. 

That m turn would jeopardise the 
continuing participation of .the dio- 
cese of London in the life of the 
Church of England But he has not 
made public nis thoughts on these 
issues- And there is a suggestion that a 
number of other bishops in England 
have privately expressed to him their 
solidarity with the way he is going. If 
that developed further, the Church of 
En gland would be beading for its 
biggest crisis since James EL 

The Movement for the Ordination 
of Women is meanwhile entitled to 
point out that it has so far observed 
all the constitutional proprieties, and 
has not threatened any sort of split in 
the Church of England in spite of very 
strong feelings among its members. 
The average churchman has a strong 
attachment to order and decorum in 
the.church, and is bound to notice the 
contrast

Science repeat 


Sludge cleans up ‘vinegar’ lake 

By Gareth Hnw Davies 


Scientists have successfully 
neutralized the addle and 
extremely sterile water in a 
flooded sand quarry in Nor- 
folk by a novel environmental 
application of the old adage, 
“set a thief to catch a thief. 

They opposed one form of 
pollution, the acidity of the 
water, which at pH3 was more 
add than vinegar, with anoth- 
er, activated sewage sludge. 

The changed environment 
which resulted from lining the 
quarry bottom with the sludge 
is now suitable for recreational 


worked out sand quarry near 
King's Lynn, was that excava- 
tion exposed sands rich in 
pyrites, natnral metal 
sulphides, whidi reacted with 
the airandmioro-organisins to 
produce sulphuric acid. 

The lakes in the quarry 
became so add that they 
contained, no zooptanktfita -or 
fish and shoreline vegetation 
was restricted to coarse grass, 
moss and heathers. 

Treating the lakes with lime 


trations of be#»y metals. 
Fanners are. cautions about 
using it on land: consequently 
water authorities find it hard 
to even give it away. 

A pilot scheme branched by 
the association in 1984 proved 
successful after one year and 
has permanently solved the 
problem of the aridity. The

uses such as fishing, boating to raise the pH level - higher 


and even swimming, and is 
being naturally colonised by a 
range of acqnatic nature. 

Scientists at the Freshwater 
Biological Association at Low- 
er Sawrey, Cambria, believe 
their technique could have 
wide application in restoring 
many biologically inert 
flooded quarries or old coal 
mi nine workings which form 
unpleasant and quite useless 
scars on the landscape. The 
National Coal Board has ex- 
pressed an interest in it 

The reason for the high 
acidity of the Blue Lagoon, a 


pH indicates lower acidity - 
was only a short term, and 
expensive, solution because 
the continued production of 
sulphate would soon retail die 
pH to the original level of 
acidity, and the process would 
have had to be continuously 
repeated. 

The owners of the quarry, 
British Industrial Sand, called 
in the association who hit m 
the low cost application of 
sludge, the end product of the 
sewage treatment process. 
Sludge is an effedve fertiliser 
but can contain high concea- 


ecosystem, providing a reser- 
voir of organic carbon whidi 
allowed a rich natnral lake 
sediment to build ap, a process 
continued by natnral photo- 
synthesis. 

The stodge also sealed the 
lake bed to prevent the pene- 
tration of oxygen which would 
produce more add, and neu- 
tralized the aridity in toe 
underground water which 
seeps Into it 

The lake, with a maximum 
depth of fora- metres, now 
supports plant and animal life, 
all natural arrivals, inclnding 
algae and horned pood weed 
and doled pondweed. In 1985 
toe lake was stocked with 
rainbow trout which’ thrived on 
toe neutralised waters^

Mr Martin Coopn-, CBE, 
one of the mosl gifted, stylish

Richmond, Surrey, on March 
15. He was 76. 

Martin Du Pre Cooper^g

was a scholar of Winchester 
and Hertford College. Oxford, 
before going on to study 
composition in Vienna under 
Egon WeUesz. 

Returning to England, ne

He had . published 
books: William Temple

which Oner gently argued

Christianity by describing

career. 

As a schoolmaster, first at 
Stowe and then at Winchester, 
he was prized not only for his 
knowledge of music but for a 

cosmopolitan range of inter- 
ests that, included mastery of W 
half a dozen languages. 

Joining the Daily Telegraph 
in 1950 as assistant to Richard 
Capell, he became chief music 
critic on the laltcr's death in 
1954. His most valuable con- 
tributions to the paper were 
his weekly essays, in which his 
alert mind, his wide cultural 
reference and his urbane style 
won him a following, not only 
among musicians and concert- 
goers. 

a time when Engiito 
musical journalism still tend- 
ed to the pastoral-parochjal. 
Cooper’s was a refreshing 
voice. 

Two of his chief interests 
were explored in the admira- 
ble little books Opera Co- 
mique (1949) and Russian 
Opera (1951k but his major 
work from those years was a 
classic study, French Music 
(1951), that covered the peri- 
od from the death of Berlioz to 
the death of Faure. He also 
edited The Musical Times 
from 1953 to 1956. 

A collection of essays, Ideas 
and Music, typically ranged 
beyond his chosen art, and 
gave some indication of the 
exceptional breadth of his 
reading and thinking Beetho- 
ven: the Last Decade was an 
amende honorable to a com- 
poser he regretted having once 
misunderstood. 

Retiring from full-time 
journalism in 1976, Cooper 
continued to write and broad- 
cast, but increasingly turned 
his linguistic talents to trans- 
lating other men’s writings 
(from German, French and 
Russian). 

It'Was a regret to many that 
so gifted a man did not write 
more books, for he had a 
quality of mind - witty, quick 
and sharp but also erudite, 
thoughful and religious - rare 
in critics of any art 

Highly self-critical. Cooper 
was also swift to praise excel- 
lence in others, and he had the 
quality of making others seem 
to shore, rather than be sub- 
dued by, his own intelligence. 

Somewhat prone to depres- 
sion, he had also a sense of 
humour that could be deliber- 
ately outrageous. His compa- 
ny and his conversation were, 
to his fortunate friends, life- 
enhancing. 

He married, in 1940, Mary 
Stewart; they had one son, the 
novelist Dominic, and three 
daughters, including the con- 
cert pianist, Imogen. 


The Right Rev Anthony 
Otter, Bishop Suffragan of 
Grantham from 1949 to 1965 
and Assistant Bishop in the 
Diocese of Lincoln since 1965, 
died at his home in Belton. 
Lincolnshire, on March 9. He 
was 89. 


. Educated at Repton. whose 
engineering bias attracted 
him, and Trinity College, 
Cambridge, he served as a 
young naval lieutenant in the 
RNVR in the First World War 
when he was involved in 
wireless telegraphy sets which

to bed-warm for Spitting Im-

making Fleet Street's propri-_ 
etnrs and editors look by 
contrast like Benedictine 
monks. When BL poll out of

Harr}’ Stringer -- the scholarly 
former editor of The Daily 
Crucible — is forced on televi- 
sion to offer free human 
kidneys. Played with immacn- < 
tare gluraness by Geoffrey 
Palmer, Stringer next finds 
himself promoting a prize of 
sextaplets. The first six child- 
less couples who write in with 
proof of sterility can take 
home a toddler. Robert Hardy, 
who in the role of Twiggy 
Ratbbone perhaps confuses ! 
londness with manipotation. is 
also impressive in. his font 
comedy series, playing not 
only tbe parts of proprietor 
and editor but the independent ! 
directors as well. 1 

Given the quality of the , 


production for tbe English-National 
Opera is right to identify , one of the 
main reasons- as the composer’s 
presence himself in the drama in the 
guise of Amfortas. This was tbe 
character with whom . he felt over- 
whelming sympsthy.ParsiJaJwzsto 
be nis redemption of himself just as 
Parsifal would be the redeemer of 
Amfortas. But no man can compose 
his own salvation, as Wagner surely 
becomes painfully aware as he nears 
his finale. And, even if Parsifal had 
worked as a myth of redemption, it 
would still have contained the colos- * 
sal paradox of saving Wagner’s soul 
while at tbe same time enhancing -hi<e 
ego by its success as a work of art. On 
his own terms, he left himself with no 
escape, and it m ay be accounted to his 
moral credit that he faced tbe feet. 
Parsifal proceeds from old Kfingsofs 
staring unflinchingly into a mirror 
that was for from ma gical - 
If Mr Here, offers a plausible 
diagnosis of the opera, however, he 
does so with little subtlety, though it 
is unfair to give a definitive judge- 
ment on the production as yet, since 
on Saturday night it was not r unning 
at all smoothly, and also since, as 
already reported here, the title role 
was taken over at very short notice by 
Siegfried Jerusalem. He did a splen- 
did job in entering a new production 
cold, and sang magnificently, particu- 


larly in the third art; it even seemed 
appropriate that this Parsifal should 
be singing his own language, with 
everyone rise on stage too polite or 
too mystified to mention the fact. 
Nevertheless, the production had 
evidently been shaken by recent 
trauma. 

But, even allowing for that, to 
clothe Amfortas in a Wagnerian 
dressing-gown trivializes the point, 
just as it trivializes the moribund 
authority of Titurri to have him 
appearing, if tottering, on stage in 
cope and dalmatic: of course these 
two represent on one level the 
exhausted old church and the tainted 
new, Rome and Bayreuth, but tbe 
suggestion can be made less explicit- 
ly. Nor is this a lone example of 
heavy-handedness. The stuffed swan

double piano concerto by the 
master of expressionist surre-

Harrison Birtwistle. There 
should have been queues 
stretching as far as, say, 
Wapping: I hope more will 
make a date with the next 
"Music of Eight Decades” 
concert on April 2. 

This time around Bruno 
Canino and Antonio Bailista 
were the quick-witted soloists 
in Zimmerraann’s Dialoge , 
which has a vast orchestra 
flickering with keyboard figu- 
ration, as if issuing from a 
dozen rainbow pianos, before 
the awesome entrance of ghost 
quotations from Debussy and 
Mozart. After a masterly expo- 
sition of this score Peter 
Etitvos conducted a beautiful- 


Then came Birtwistle's 
Earth Dances, a 35-minute 
sprawling, lumbering giant of 
a score that makes a quick 
verbal sketch more than usu- 
ally irrelevant. It is like bis 
Si/bury Air and bis Secret 
Theatre multiplied together, a 
work of long groundswells, of 
strange unending melody (es- 
pecially for the woodwind 
ensemble), of cascading dock- 
works from tuned percussion, 
of densely worked string tex- 
tures, and huge heroic fan- 
fares: often of all these things 
together, with the addition of 
something new in the dance 
element that keeps trickling 
over the surface, frequently 
speaking rather curiously with 
a Latin-American accent, 
though not in the climactic 
and tumultuous “Danse sac- 
rale”. A lesser composer 
would have followed prece- 
dent and slopped here, but 
Birtwistle successfully goes on 
into a slow, quiet coda, to 
leave his audience staring (like 
Parsifal) after an opaque cere- 
monial of magnificance.

piping. With the ultra-violet lights 
turned off, this becomes the contents 
of a giant ashtray for the third act. 
The flower-maidens operate from 
within a bowl of pink rags, and return 
at the end as vestal virgins (or 
perhaps snowdrops), though the femi- 
nist point would be stronger if the 
music were not by this stage thor- 
oughly unconvinced by itself 


Tbe blame must be shared by his 
designer Wolf Munzner, whose first- 
act forest is an ugly mess of leaf-green 


Sir Reginald GoodalL however, 
sounds convinced, indeed possessed, 
by every bar he conducts a perfor- 
mance that is both searing and 
grandiloquent, and that does more 


than justify a visit to this production. 
Also excellent is Gwynne Howell's 
refreshingly human Gumemanz. a 
young man of limited imagination 
but touching vulnerability in the first 
act, and still green as the aged hermit. 
Neil Howlett as Amfortas sings with a 
passionate sense of great strength in 
travail, and Anne Evans as Kundry 
has a candour and fragility that 
worked rather well in her dealings 
with Parsifal. Rodney Macarm has 
been encouraged to play Klingsor too 
much as the demon king.

announced that hewas -suffer- 
ing from tracheitis but had 
agreed to continue. From then 
on it -was hit or — mostly — 
miss,- with a total lapse into 
hoarseness for the final scene. 

It was not alone a matter of 


tremes, including some pianis- 
simi that might have 
registered in a smaller house 
but simply vanished here, or 
were submerged by James 
Levine’s exuberant players. 


mingo sneezes the entire oper- the voice: What was needed to 
atic world seems to catch a. offset Ewing's bizarre and 


cold. And this, starting with compelling Carmen was an- 
the tenor's tragic loss of other commanding stage pres- 


relatives m the Mexico City 
earthquake, has been a flu 
season no one will soon forget 
Domingo was on, off and then 
-on again for the Mel's new 
Carmen in tire Peter Hall 
production, adapted from 
Glyndebourne, with the fat- 
ter’s wife, Marfa Ewing, in the 
tide role. Carmen footed like 


ence. At his s trong es t Luna's 
Josi seemed merely pouty and 
petulant, hardly an adequate 
foil for his relentless tormen- 
tor. This weakness may have 
stemmed from Lima's indis- 
position, but what allowance 
can be made for Michael 
Devlin's EscamiDo, which was 
utterly ineffectual both vocal- 


faring better than - Covent ly (no solidity and- no bottom) 
Garden's planned Ord/oas far and dramatically? Is this the 


as Domingo, was concerned. 
Buvalas. h was not to be. at 
feast at the start. Slow recov- 
ery from surgery for his hernia 
operation forced him to caned 
the first two performances — . 
and possibly more. Luis Lima 
has replaced him. 

. Domingo was sorely missed 
on the opening night, and not 
only for the obvious reasons. 
Lima's small tone, clear and 
focused catty on, grew cloudy 
and then, in the second act, 
dotted. At the interval it was 


best the Met can muster for a 
major role in a new produc- 
tion? • 

Thus, surrounded by non- 
entities, Ewing's intense and 
highly coloured Carmen 
seemed a creature from anoth- 
er planet In a reading virtual- 
ly devoid of straightforward 
vocalization Ewing bent pitch 
ami shaded tone, skewed vow- 
els, nudged and dragged tem- 
pi, warbled with quick vibrato 
and droned with none. She 
also sought dynamic ex- 


Admirers of more tradition- 
al vocalism had to content 
themselves with lovely mo- 
ments from Catherine Mal- 
fitano. Her voice had a hard 
edge to ft which might have 
precluded some of Micaela's 
vulnerability, but at least it 
allowed her to soar over the 
orchestra — and poor Lima — 
with ease: Levine sometimes 
let ensemble slip, especially in 
tbe choral numbers, and 
sometimes covered vocal 
lines, but here it was often 
difficult to tell which party 
was to blame. The orchestra 


played well and the woodwind 
superbly in the exposed solos. 

Hall's direction and John 
Bury’s sets are conservative, 
even reactionary, given cer- 
tain recent attempts at inno- 
vative opera production. But 
Hall has conceived a suitably 
realistic framework for his 
wife's hyper-realistic portray- 
al. In the first and fourth acts 
he peoples the stage with 
Zeffirellian hordes, even 
throwing in a few horses at the 
end. On its own, mostly 
traditional, terms this is a 
well-conceived production, 
desperately needing some 
great singing, more solid act- 
ing and a grand personality. 
Domingo is missed. 



Donald Erb's 1 97S Cello Con- 
certo belongs to that genre of 
large orchestral pieces that 
flourishes particularly pro- 
fusely in the United States. 
Borrowing the musical rheto- 
ric of Angst created largely by 
central European composers 
in response to their own 
difficult environments, the 
Americans create upbeat 
pieces which fluctuate be- 
tween brashness and pseudo- 
mysticism in a showy manner 
rather too obviously designed 
to titillate (but not to shock) 
non-specialist audiences. Such 
works do tend to rise and fall 
on a seasonal basis; usually 
written to fill the "new music 
slot” in the repertoire of the 
big-city orchestras, they are 
then superseded by next year’s 
commissions.

This concerto, however, is 
at the very least a marvel-

the soloist in this British

siring glissandi and harmon-

chord oscillations, and colour- 
ful percussive effects — plus 
more distracting require- 
ments. like a vocal contribu- 
tion from tbe cellist (Harrell 
revealed quite a presentable 
baritone) — is organized highly 
efficiently. The transition 
from the slow middle section 
to the finale's busy complexity 
was especially dramatic. 

Erb sat a little awkwardly in 
what was otherwise an all- 
Tchaikovsky programme. 
Harrell gave a scintillating 
performance of the Variations 
on a Rococo Theme, artfully 
combining the heroic and the 
wistful. The American sopra- 
no Maggi Heihveil sang the 
Eugene Onegin Letter Scene 
with vibrant tone, especially 
in tbe top register; but young 
Tatiana sounded unusually 
phlegmatic in this character- 
ization. 

The conductor, Richard 
Stamp, may not stray far from 
the conventional in interpre- 
tative terms, but his Academy 
of London invariably recruits 
outstanding players, including 
a fair proportion of London- 
based Americans. Having ac-

the Odeon for three consecu- 
tive nights, but then certain 
cults, like some old movies, 
just run and run. 

It is ten years since the 
ghoulish singer Lux Interior 
and bis guitar-playing col- 
league Ivv Rorschach formed 
the group in New York, and 
eight years since they first 
visited Britain as part of Miles 
Copeland's expanding empire 
of acts. Since then they have 
flourished in the independent 
chan, playing to gradually 
increasing audiences irrespec- 
tive of changing trends. 

Oh stage they create a world 
of their own, a comic mock- 
Gothic twilight zone where 
they roam like papier mache 
gods. The bare-chested Lux, 
with, his dark-ringed eyes, 
black hair and pale com- 
plexionJooked like a reject 
from the Addams family, 
while Ivy in her chi-chi belly- 
dancer's rig could have 
stepped siraipn out of a Fry’s 
Turkish Delight commercial 
but for the guitar strapped 
round her neck. The new 
bassist a big-boned girl 
known as Fur. contributed to 


the gaiety with her preposter- 
ous parody of a Playboy 
bunny-girl, replete with Mohi- 
can "hair-style, fur-covered 
bra, bobbing tail and biker 
boots. Nick Knox, the drum- 
mer, looked normal. 

This vision of B-movie tat 
appropriately complemented 
their musical approach, a B- 
side package of morbid punk 
rockabilly with touches of 
Sixties surf-beat- and drain- 
water psychedelia. The ragged 
voodoo spirit was well cap- 
tured, and proved a lot of fun. 
as during “Blue Moon Baby”, 
when Ivy’s faltering, twanging 
guitar steered surfboards 
through swamps, or in “The 
Most Exalted Potentate of 
Love” where she brought 
Jonathan Richman's Egypt to 
the Hammer House of Horror. 
Fur livened things up with 
odd grotesque sequences of 
fuzz-boxed bass, while Knox 
bashed out minimal patterns 
with calm uninterest. 

Lux sang in an echoing, 
tuneless growl, throwing him- 
self about with the sort of 
disturbed abandon pioneered 
by that venerable patron of 
theatrical self-abuse Iggy Pop. 
“V'ou’ve got good taste". Lux 
congratulated the audience, 
and, as opened bottles of wine 
and broken bits of micro- 
phone-stands flew about the 
stage, it looked as if we were 
about to see a monster at fast. 
Unique, unspoilt glorious , 
trash. i 


David Sinclair 


Nowadays it is big news in the 
operatic world when Siegfried 
enters a time-warp or Rigo- 
letto gets co-opted into the 
Manhattan Mafia. Bui such 
directorial 'exploits pale in 
comparison with that of Oscar 
Hammerstein II who, in 1943. 
devised not only a modern 
American setting but an en- 
tirely new libretto for Carmen 
while remaining wholly faith- 
ful to the score and spirit of 
tbe original. 

Pre-empted by the 1954 
film version, the stage produc- 
tion never crossed the Atlantic 
and it has been left to Sheffield 
to present this long-delayed 
but well-timed European pre- 
miere: an event that catches 
the tide of opera-for-all with 
Broadway's most successful 
raid on the Metropolitan Op- 
era House. 

Famously, Carmen Jones 
takes place entirely inside 
black America, which denies it 
the ethnic tension between the 
Spanish militia and the gyp- 
sies. But the substitution of a 
group of wartime GIs and the 
girls from a parachute factory 
leaves the dramatic impera- 
tive intact It is still a world 
polarized between discipline 
and passion. Also, although 
this is before the emergence of 
Black Power. Joe and his 
buddies are serving in the 
while man's army to which 
Carmen presents a political as 
well as an erotic temptation. 
The shame of Bizet's Eton Jose 
is nothing in comparison to 
that of Hammerstein’s Joe, 
interrupting his dance with 
Carmen to confess that he has 
to catch the next bus. 

The plot uniquely combines 
all the apparatus of melodra- 
ma with total truthfulness to 
human behaviour, and this 
survives as well in the compa- 
ny of punters and prizefighters 
as it does with smugglers and 
toreadors. 

The Crucible has a fine 
record with musicals and Ste- 
ven PimJott’s and dare 
Venables’s production is well 
up to standard. Its large 
company contains a high pro- 
portion of Americans with 
two or three outstandingly 
good voices. Choreography, 
by Carole Todd, makes thrill- 
ing spectacles from the Haba- 
nera and the Seguidilla. 

Alison Chiuy, normally a 
designer of the utmost auster- 
ity. contributes a highly de- 
railed series of pieces which 
establish Billy Pastor's bar and 
the boxing gym with the hard 
realism of a Hopper painting. 
After the wired gates of the 
first act the chrome and black 
of the gym come over as a 
gateway to freedom and the 
big time: and you can feel 


Joe's humiliation as he pushes 
open ihe heavy plate-glass 
doors and tries to wheedle his 
fur-coated mistress into aban- 
doning the gravy-train and 
coming home with him. 

Derek Lee Ragin plays him 
with a perpetual ingratiating 
smile, at first genuine — as 
though not able to believe his 
own luck — and then stiffening 
into a sickly grimace: an 
amiable, easy-going figure, 
pushed into the act of extreme 
violence of which only the 
weak are capable. 

His Carmen is La Verne 
EWilliams, a singer with a 
loudly unfocused top register 


but with dark, fateful lower 
notes that belong to this 
character as to no other. The 
essence of her tragedy is that 
she starts with no idea of being 
a tragic figure but as a fearless 
pleasure-lover who is well 
stacked and knows it, and 
excels in erotic teasing. She 
then proceeds towards the 
final knife-thrust with granite 
implacability.

pointingly sung: but Maureen

£3bn tax Tunnellers seek hotel survivors 

the rich 
plan by 
Labour 




By Richard Evans 
Lobby Reporter 

A £3 billion ami-poverty 
programme planned by the 
Labour Party would be fi- 
nanced by Britain's top wage 
earners who have benefited 
from tax concessions during 
the Thatcher years. 

Mr Roy Haitersley. shadow 
Chancellor or the Exchequer, 
has gained the support of 
Shadow Cabinet colleagues for 
the programme to be paid for 
"by recouping the tax conces- 
sions which have, over the 
past six years, been exclusive- 
ly enjoyed by the richest 5 per 
cent of taxpayers". 

The money raised would 
finance "considerable" in- 
creases in child benefit, pen- 
sions and other welfare 
payments for the worst oft 

Mr Hanersley's strategy, 
outlined to colleagues last 
week, emphasizes that the 
ami-poverty plan should be 
“discrete" because it would be 
financed from the 5 percent of 
highest earners. 

He proposes a £5 a week 
increase for single pensioners 
and £S for a married couple, at 
an extra cost of £1.000 mil- 
lion. A £3 per week increase in 
child benefit would cost 
£1.350 million, while extend- 
ed long-term rates of supple- 
mentary benefit to long-term 
unemployed would require a 
further £500 million. 

“The cost of the programme 
is less than the £3.6 billion 
which the richest 5 per cent 
have received. We should not 
give the misleading impres- 
sion that we intend to finance 
our anti-poverty programme 
simply by levying higher in- 
come tax on this group." 

In a table headed “Income 
Tax Cuts for the Rich" he sets 
out four tax concessions 
which he says have principally 
gone to the richest seclor.They 
are: 

• Higher-rate income tax 
cuts - worth £1.931 million a 
yean 

• Removal of investment in- 
come — £S75 million; 

• Capital gains tax cuts — 
£387 million; 

• Capital transfer tax cuts — 
£450 million.

Workers inspecting the entrance to the tunnel through 
which engineers are trying to reach survivors. 


Singapore (Renter) — Two 
more Chinese survivors were 
pulled alive yesterday from the 
debris of a Singapore hotel 
after spending more than a day 
buried alive. 

Engineers tunnelling 
through tons of debris at the 
front of what was once the 
seven-storey New World Ho- 
tel broke through to the two 
men just before midnight 

The two latest survivors 
needed only brief treatment at 
a medical tent before being 
taken on stretchers to a heli- 
copter waiting to fly them to 
hospital. 

As they passed by under the 
arc lamps, hundreds of rescue 
workers cheered and dapped. 

Eleven people have now 
been brought alive from air 
pockets under the hotel, which 
caved in Just before noon on 
Saturday. 

Among the original nine 
rescued, four are m hospital 
with severe injuries. Seven 
bodies have also been found 
and police think jnst under 60 
people are still entombed.

less than 2 per cent in the first

Ad m inistration’s forecast of J 

-to 4 jwr cent growth. All the 

.-economy-numbers have point- 
ed to this resalt, and have 
stimulated an extraordinary 
-boon in bond prices which 
driven the 30-year bond yield 
. .below 8 per cent 

The long-bond is expected 
to reach a yield of 7 per cent 
this year and the nearby T-

reach 106. At present this

of 0.1 per cent in January

and the increase in February 
employment was a modest

monthly increase of 238,0CC 
daring the whole of last year. ■ 
The possibility of a reces- 
sion this year now seems a for 
more reasonable proposition 


. than it did at the end of last 
year when the monetarist- 
dominated “consensus” was 
forecasting a “surge of 
growth" in the first quarter of 
this year. Despite the 20 to 25 
per cent devaluation of the

While both tibe bond market 
and the stock market have 
enjoyed large , gabs hi recorf 
weeks, the stock market now 
appears to be the more vnlnei^ 
aide. The market leader, IBM. 
has fallen front 158 to 150 in 
die last couple of weeks. The 
stock market is being support- 
ed by decBning interest rates, 
rather .than any notable profit- 
ability of American business. 

The present boom in the stock 

market is now 42 months oW, 
compared 1 with the post-war. 
average of 38 months. 

Much foreign baying of US 
stocks and bonds during toe 
boom that began in mid- 
February has arrested the 
deefine of the dollar. The New

The Oigahizatibn of Petro-. 
leum Exporting Countries 
(Opec) yesterday renewed its 
attack on Britain for refusing 
to cooperate in cutting North 
Sea oil production to help ease 
the pressure on world oD 
prices. 

And it has suggested that a 
meeting betweerrMrs Thatch- 
er and Sheikh Ahmed Zaki 
Ya mani, the Saudi' oil mini *. 


that -the British Government 
could not dictate to the oil 
companies in' the North Sea 
what their output should be. 

- British pohey has always 
been that -output from 1 the 
North Sea should be dictated 
by free market demand, al- 
though Opec still considers 
that the previous Energy Min- 
ister, Mr Nigel Lawson, gave a 
commitment in March 1983 


ter, may be sought to persuade that North ...Sea production 
the Prune Minister that foiling 1 would remain 'at its then level ‘ 
oil revenues are as bad for 
Britain, as they are for the 13 
Opec members. 


Sheikh Yamani said yester- 
day in Geneva that he is 
prepared to consider meeting 
anyone to find a solution to 
the oil price crisis. 

Although suggesting that 
prices may have to foil even 
further- be has quoted a figure 
of $8 a barrel - the Saudi oil 
minister said; “We must be 
prepared _ to explore all- 
solutions." 

A meeting between Sheikh 
Yamani, the architect of most 
of Opec’s recent policy, and 
Mrs Thatcher would take 
place on an informal basis and 
Britain would agreed to it only 
if Opec accepted beforehand 


of 23 million; barrels a day, 
instead of rising to its present 
average of2.7 milli on barrels a 
day. 

Opec has timed this week's 
meeting in Geneva to clash 
with Mr Lawson's Budget, 
knowing that uncertainty over 
the world oil price would have 
8 psychological if not a funda- 
mental effect on his calcula- 
tions. . 

Its ministerial meeting will 
be followed -on Wednesday by 
a meeting with non-member 
oil Dtoducers such as Mexico, 
Malaysia, Oman, Egypt and 
possibly India. 

.Norway bad suggested that 
it might attend, but reversed 
its position apparently after

pressure 

Slates. 


Britain was not invited 
because Opec did not want to 
create a situation which would 
lead to an inevitable snub. 

However, Britain's coopera- 
tion was again called for 
yesterday by Dr Mana Saeed 
A1 Otaiba, the United Arab 
Emirates oil minister, who, 
with Sheikh Yamani, is lead- 
ing the element within Opec 
which is prepared to see prices 
foil further to secure an agree- 


ment on production which 
will be obeyed by all Opec 
members ana with which non- 
members can cooperate. 

He said: “If we don’t get 
together then the price is going 
to fall for below $] 0. There is a 
feeling that Opec should reach 
a new output agreement and 
after that has been agreed and 
obeyed then the non-Opec 
producers should respond." 

The president of Opec, Se- 
nor Arturo Grisami, the Vene- 
zuelan oil minister, said that 
he expected Opec to spend the 
next two days discussing the 
level at which its members feel 
they should defend their mar- 
ket share. 

Kuwait has put forward a 
proposal that each country 
should accept a cut m the 
output quota agreed on in 
London in March 1983, but 
that they should also accept 
that they must be strictly 
adhered to. 

Mr Grisanti said: “We 
know that many oil producing 
countries outside Opec are 
also concerned about the foil- 
ing oil price and 1 know that 
they are willing to help bring 
stability back to the market.”

rejuvenated W oolworth 


By Edward Townsend 
Industrial Correspondent 

Woolworth Holdings, 
whose subsidiaries indude the 
do-it-yourself B & Q stores,

A £748m 
boost for 
tourism 

By Ctar Industrial Editor 

Fifty-five tourism projects 
worth £1 35 million were com- 
plied in *' England in foe- 
second half of last year. And 
other major projects under 
construction dining that time 
accounted for another £613 
million of investment. 

The figures were given yes- 
terday in the latest survey by 
the English Tourist Board. Its 
chairman, Mr Duncan Bluck, 
said: “The level of investment 
in tourism and leisure contin- 
ues to grow and is a positive 
pointer to job prospects in the 
industry.” ... 

Leisure and sports develop- 
meats accounted f or £ 1 13- 
miiiwM of investment between 
July and December last year. 
Many were local -authority 
funded. 

Schemes which have bene- 
fited from European Regional 
Development Fund grants are 
Blackpool’s £16 million 
Sandcastle leisure complex 
smH Bridlington's £4.3 million 
3-Bs all-weather entertain- 
ment centre, due to open in 
1987. 

About £107 million . has 
gone into ailtural attractions. 
The biggest angle investment 
was £26 million for the rerar- 
bishmeni — due for comple- 
tion in June, 1987 - of the 
Victoria and Albert Museum. ■ 

; Some £57 million is being 
invested in new kotels, al- 
though only one is in central 
London with its pl ann ing 
problems.

Clothing and textile 
exports rise 14% 

- By Teresa Poole * 


-'British dothmg and textile 
exports rose 14 i?er cent to 
£3.124 billion last year. 

Clothing was particularly 
buoyant, up 9 per cent in 
volume and 18 per cent in 
value, according to the British 
Textile Confederation’s re- 
view of 1985. 

Although the overall bal- 
ance of trade deficit increased 
by £41 million to £2.159 
billion, this marks a slowing in 
the pace of deterioration, de- 
spite a 9 per cent increase in 
the value of imports to more 
than £5 bUGou. • 

In clothing, Ireland re- 
mained foe largest single over- 
seas customer, for British 
■goods -but the main growth 
came from the US which 
increased its imports of Brit- 
ish dofoes -and knitwear- by 
more than a third. 

The US also consolidated 
its position as foe top import- 
er of British textiles, with a 


rise of more than a fifth in 
value. 

The most successful export 
product remains foe British 
sweater, with a 19 per cent 
increase to £240 million. 

In the light of foe imminent 
negotiations for foe renewal of 
the Multi Fibre Arrangement 
— an agreement on quotas 
governing world trade in tex- 
tiles — foe federation says that 
Third World imports will be 
sucked into foe EEC if foe US 
adopts the hardline MFA 
policy indicated by President 


British output has recov- 
ered strongly over foe past 
three years but clothing pro- 
duction is still slightly below 
pre-slump levels, while textile

DRI fears 
rapid oil 
price rise 
in 1988 

By David Smith 

Economics Correspondent 

The sharp tall in oil prices is 
of major short-term benefit to 
foe world economy, according 
to simulations published to- 
day by DRI Europe, the 
economic forecasting group. 
But oil prices could again 
begin to rise rapidly in two 
years. 

The group has carried out 
foe simulations on foe basis of 
an oil price of SlOa barrel, foe 
first complete review of its 
kind since foe recent collapse 
in oil prices, DRI Europe says. 

On the simulated S 1 0 basis, 
oil markets again become tight 
by 1988, as foe Organization 
of Petroleum Exporting Coun- 
tries reaches 85 per cent of 
capacity. Prices may then 
sweep upwards. 

Meanwhile, there is a halv- 
ing of imports by Opec. Ex- 
porters in Europe, 
particularly, suffer from a 
contraction of markets in 
Opec, dampening the initial 
favourable effects of lower oil 
prices 

Despite this, the drop in oil 
prices has favourable net ef- 
fects on growth and inflation 
in foe industrialized countries. 
Talk of a “zero sum game,”in 
which foe favourable effects 
on growth in the industrial- 
ized world is offset by a drop 
in imports to the oil states is 
unrealistic, according to foe 
DRI simulations. 

By 1988 output in foe 
industrialized countries is 2 
per cent higher than it would 
have been. Inflation tails in 
1986 and 1987, but begins to 
rise in 1988 as faster growth 
draws bigger increases in 
wages and non-oil commodity 
prices. 

For Britain the effects are 
different There is no increase 
in domestic spending and foe 
exchange rate tails, so the 
scope for lowering inflation is 
limi ted. 

But bon-oil exports rise to 
fill the balance of payments 
gap left by oil, and employ- 
ment rises at the expense of 
growth in real incomes for 
those now working. 


Spar drive aims to double 
; 8 till Late’ stores to 2,000 


gest operator 
stores, has started a drive 
aimed at more than doubling 
its . stores to about 2,000. It 
hopes to have 1,500 operating 
by the end of the year. 

This represents an escala- 
tion of competition in conve- 
nience .stores, which an 
increasing number of retailers 
see as the newly-emeigtng 
growth sector in grocery retail- 
ing complementary to the 
superstores boom. 

Aud it is bound to increase 
fears that there will soon be 
raoiaftigs antOUg thQSG TUSh- 
ing into the sector. 

Convenience stores open 
from early in* the morning 
until late • in the evening, 

including weekends, selling a 
wide range, of groceries includ- 
ing fresh foods, alcoholic 
drinks, newspapers and maga- 
zines and other household 
goods with services like video 
Iforaries. A growin g trend is to 
link convenience stores with 
petrol stations.'

to 3.000. By 1988 the number

is planning a series of 
roadshows to sell to more of

standard, backed by bigger 
Spar spending on advertising 
and other support services. 

Mr John Irish, chief execu- 
tive of Spar UK, said invest- 
ment at store level alone is 
expected to be more than £5 
million. This will be spending 
by the store- franchisees, al- 
though a Spar committee will 
help with equipment buying 
by negotiating subsidies and a 
financing scheme through foe 
National Westminster Bank is 
being expanded. There will 
also be free paint for stores 

needing a shopfront facelift. 

The convenience concept is 
paying off at Spar, according 
to Mr Irish. Average turnover 
at 8 till Late outlets is 70 per 
cent higher than at the other, 
more traditional Spar shops, 
with most of foe convenience 
outlets doubling their profits.

quadrupled profits, be said.

Popular capitalism, 
more than a gamble 


Wider share ownerhsip, the purpose 
behind Mrs Thatcher's image of 
“popular capitalism”, has been 
spread only skin-deep by the British 
Telecom flotation. A quick Budget 
facial tomorrow will, no doubt help 
to imprint it on the face of society. 
But we need to look for deeper roots 
of change if it is to develop from 
political fashion to national habit 

The purpose of “popular 
capitalism” is, after alt something 
more profound than the desire to 
divert the gambling instinct of the 
British from dogs and horses to bulls 
and bears. It is to break down the 
antithesis of profits and wages; to 
create an identity of interest between 
entrepreneurial success and public 
satisfaction. But it is also to build up 
income security through personally- 
owned assets which reduce depen- 
dence on the state and its network of 
benefits; and this is where the 
objectives may not always coincide. 

The starting point, of course, is the 
spread of house ownership - the 
definition of the “property-owning 
democracy” that took hold in the 
Macmillan era, and which Mrs 
Thatcher is now seeking to enlarge to 
encompass the ownership of financial 
assets. 

The parallels are obvious. House 
ownership provided a stake in soci- 
ety, a sense of personal security, a 
lessening of dependence on the state. 
The Labour Party long underesti- 
mated the appetite for personal 
property in the sphere of housing; 
perhaps it is now similarly underesti- 
mating the desire for personal control 
of one's savings. But there is, in fact, a 
much more direct link between the 
two changes. 

In three generations, home owner- 
ship has spread from a mere 10 per 
cent of households to about 60 per 
cent As this change has taken place, 
there have naturally been, in each 
generation, more home-owners 
among the middle-aged than among 
their parents: but eventually it works 
its way through to the elderly. Within 
20 years, the Government’s stat- 
isticians calculate, about 70 per cent 
of the retired will be living in their 
own homes. 

This, in turn, means that roughly 
70 per cent of the nation's middle- 
aged will stand to inherit a personal 
asset from their parents. But as 
home-owning has spread, most of 
these beneficiaries will already own 
their own homes; even if their 
mortgages are not paid off under the 
present tax system it will be advanta- 
geous to them to go on borrowing 
while investing the proceeds of their 
parents’ property elsewhere. 

That phenomenon may already be 
apparent in the simultaneous rise in 
personal assets and liabilities we have 
seen in the past five years. It is, of 
course, also stimulated by the return 
of positive real interest rates. But this 
generational change in house-owning 
is likely, over the next 20 years, 


further to push up the trend in the 
personal ownership of financial as- 
sets. 

Plainly, personal pension pro- 
vision is going to increase. It will be 
stimulated, in any case, by changes 
the Government is making in the 
state earnings-related scheme. These 
are designed not merely to encourage 
the growth of private, occupational 
schemes, but even more to encourage 
personal pensions. The key question, 
however, is the extent to which 
personal savers will have an appetite 
for risk. 

Until recently, the tax advantages 
encrusted on the pension system 
actively steered the individual away 
from risk. In order to qualify for 
“contracting-out” of the state earn- 
ings-related pension, occupational 
schemes had to offer benefits linked 
to salaries - not to the returns earned 
on the investments. One of the most 
significant changes proposed by Mr 
Norman Fowler is that private 
schemes will not have to guarantee a 
fixed level of benefits. 

This modest unlacing of the strait- 
jacket of pension investment allow us 
a freer choice; but that is not to say 
that the vast majority of savers want 
to take risks with their savings. Home 
ownership, of course, has involved 
risk; there have certainly been peri- 
ods during the past 75 years when 
mortgage-holders have seen their 
investments turn sour. But the 
housing market has been under- 
pinned by tax advantages; while the 
alternatives to house-ownership have 
become less and less attractive. 

In contrast, the financial markets 
offer a wide spectrum of assets, with 
vatying risks attached. Recent survey 
evidence suggests that the new breed 
of Telecom shareholder sees the stock 
market as a hobby; he (or increas- 
ingly, she) looks to the big institu- 
tions as a secure channel for savings. 
If that is the sentiment in a bull 
market, it can only be reinforced by a 
stock market slump. Which leads, 
perhaps, to two tentative conclu- 
sions. 

The first is. that the Government 
should foster “popular capitalism” 
not merely through the single me- 
dium of personal share ownership 
but through equal encouragement of 
the ownership of all kinds of financial 
assets: the aim of individual indepen- 
dence is best served by allowing 
people to build up financial assets 
with which they personally feel 
secure. The second is that where the 
Government feels a clearer need to 
create an identity of interest - most 
signficantly, between an employee 
and the company he or she works for - 
then substantial and very specific 
incentives are called for. The two 
objectives can be pursued under a 
single slogan - just so long as their 
distinctive element are clearly under-

Ship freight rates 
slide again after 
decade of slump 

By Michael Baily, Transport Editor 


After more than 10 years of 
almost uninterrupted slump, 
shipowners have suffered an- 
other slide in freight rales in 
recent weeks. 

A dry cargo bulk carrier 
from the United -States to 
Europe earns about 56 a tonne 
compared with SO at the 
beginning of the year. A big 
tanker earns, in trade termin- 
ology. about Worldscale 23 
from the Persian Gulf to 
• Europe compared with 
Worldscale 32.5 iri January. 
These are rates at which few 
owners can make money.- - 

Two reasons, are given for 
the latest turn in the freight 
market: lower Wfi^^prices - 
which lower shipowner costs 
and pass the reduction straight 
on to charterers; and a further 
drop in cargo moving, reflect- 
ing the sfugpsh state of the 
world economy. 

Overhanging these tempo- 
rary factors is the continuing .. 
huge surplus of shipping sup- 
ply over demand. 

. According to the latest anal- 

1 ysis from NYK Research in 
Japan, more than a third of file 
world's dry cargo fleet and 
more than hailf the tanker fleet 
are surplus to requirements. 

NY1C estimates bulk carrier 
supply in 1986 at 231 million 
tonnes, and demand at only 
171 million — a surplus of 60 
million tonnes. Tanker supply 
is estimated at 257 million 
tonnes, and. supply at 166 
million - an even bigger gap. 

Wifit that sort of imbalance 
between -supply an d demand, 
ifcere.can.be little hope of the 
Bnd of sustained upturn in 
rates shipowners need. It is a 
top that has been building up 
i 3ra.since foe mid- 1.970s, and 
there has been little sign of a 
hjog-tettn improvement. 

The r ‘i0 ‘years' to 1983 
tanker demand in the crude mi 
Cades &n by 46 per -cent, but 
tanker fleet grew by 10 per 
c&U despiie heavy scrapping. 

.■ "SjOyer -.the same period dry 
hjdk traffic in the three main 


trades — ore, coal and grain - 
increased by 2 1 .5 per cent But 
the fleet grew by 82 per cent 

With a huge surplus of ships 
still overhanging the market, 
and slower growth in the two 
main bulk trades, oil and ore, 
there can be tittle short-term 
optimism. The ratio of oil 
consumption per unit of gross 
domestic product has already 
fallen from 0.46 to 0.31 from 
the 1970s to the 1980s, and by 
1990 it is expected to fall 
further to. 0.27. And, as the 
seed industry moves towards 
ever more efficient production - 
methods, scrap is increasingly 
displacing pig iron as a source 
.material, and. ore flows are. 
consnp^tly.rediiced: '• 

Theeflfectofall this, accord- 
ing to Mr JimDavis, shipping 
director at Klein wort Benson 
. and chairman of the Interna- 
tional Maritime Industries 

• Forum, is that “in the short 
term prospects remain . ex- 
tremely bad” 

But in the longer tom, he 
sees tight beginning to appear 
in the form of an im proved 
relationship between scrap- 
ping and building, resulting in 
a ' further reduction in the 
-world fleet - and hence 
surplus tonnage - if only 
banks, owners and the govem- 

• ments of shipbuilding states 
can exercise sdf-resirainL 

“If only people win get 
together on . a sensible ap- 
proach to scrapping, this could 
be the worst year, ’’says Mr 
Da vis. “Things are moving in 
the right direction.” 

Food takeover 

Conditional ’ terms have 
been agreed for Slater Foods 
to acquire the capital of Uncle 
Wong Food Products, a frozen 
and chilled food producer. 
Payment is to be through 1.5 
million Slater shares valued at 
a total of £2.1 million plus a 
further 4,000 shares for every

GILT-EDGED 


Base rate cuts: toe little and too late 


The Chancellor, of course, is 
alway’s hmbo dancing to- 
wards his monetary targets. 
Most of the time, the girth in 
credit has stopped him from 
straining beneath the wand. 
Finally, last October, in exas- 
peration, Mr- Nigd Lawson 
junked the entire apparatus 
and splashed about instead in 
the currency pooL Credit 
demand, in the meantime, 
just kept a growin’. 

A fresh turn to this touch- 
ing fable may well lake place 
tomorrow when the Chancel- 
lor fills the one spot each year 
which remains unquestion- 
ably his own — the Budget 
Collapsing oil revenues have 
tom a hole in his revenue 
projections, and, if reports 
speak true, the Chancellor 
plans to raise his borrowing 
targets to absorb the shortfall 
-This is a major divergence 
from the Medium Term Fi- 
nancial Strategy. But t o pre- 
serve the spirit of the MTFS 
enterprise, any loosening in 
targeted fiscal policy will be 
traded off against a notional 
tightening of monetary policy 
through the restoration of 
broad monetary targets. 

Well, that is the story. And 
should the collective jaw of 
the British fond manayr 
gape wide at this well-report- 
ed piece of speculation,then 
that jaw could be forgiven. 
Six months ago, markets were 
forced to go cold turkey on 
the Chancellor’s credibility, 
after £M3 targeting was sus- 
pended amid a plethora of 
official rodomontade. 


Yet the mere fact that the 
Chancellor is even toying 
with the idea of monetary 
targeting again illustrates the 
huge policy bind in which he 
has become enmeshed. Last 
October, it must have seemed 
like intelligence indeed to let 
foe dials rust until foe spring. 
Allow foe credit growth to 
marinade away gently in foe 
economy, his econometri- 
cians told him. 

The low output capability 
of foe economy means foal in 
about a year's time it will find 
itself Into the Stock Ex- 
change, just in time to plump 
up the market for asset sales. 
The Chancellor must be furi- 
ous- with his boffins now, 
after they underestimated foe 
transmission rate by a street. 
Judging by the way that last 
week's news ofbooming bank 
lending was paralleled by a 
surging stock market foe two 
have become virtually coinci- 
dent indicators. 

Spring mania in markets 
means that the bubble may 
have burst long before British 
Gas is ready for flotation. 
The problem of excess credit 
growth poses a real threat to 
the Chancellor’s 'negative ex- 
penditure plans. 

But the Chancellor faces 
pressure on another front. So 
rar, he has been unable to join 
in foe rate-cutting spree of foe 
rest of the Group of Five. The 
West Germans and foe 
Americans took risks when 
they cut their discount rates, 
principally because of ex- 
change rate fears. But none- 


theless. they were able to 
bring their money rales into 
line with reduced inflation 
expectations, and notionally 
at least, benefit their real 
economies. 

Not so Britain, which has 
not felt able so fkr to follow 
suit for a host of reasons. 
Apprehension ahead of foe 
present Opec meeting will 
have played a part in foe 
decision to procrastinate; But 
so too will foe latest set of 
money supply numbers, 
which pointed to broad mon- 
ey growth of about 13 per 
cent a year, rocky PSBR 
trends, and a familiar high 
level of bank lending. 

Meanwhile, the accord be- 
tween the Group of Five has 
moved into a new phase. In 
foe United States, a series of 
bad numbers on retail sales 
and industrial production, 
coupled with low producer 
prices data, pushed bonds 
and equities into near-frenzy, 
as the traders hollered for 
cheaper money. But Switzer- 
land. significantly, has no 
intention, apparently, of cut- 
ting its discount rate. 

At a meeting last week of 
foe Bank for International 
Settlements, mid-European 
central bankers were ada- 
mant that no more rate cuts 
loomed on the horizon. 
Whatever foe Chancellor 
now does, he seems certain to 
risk offending either the Ger- 
man currency bloc or foe 
New York-Tokyo axis. And if 
he does nothing, he risks 
dropping out of the G5 club 


altogether, with all which foal 
means for fine borrowing 
terms. 

German call and one- 
month rates firmed up last 
week The Chancellor may 
have missed the rate-cutting 
window, in the broadest 
sense of foe term. 

Intriguingly, the policy di- 
lemmas faced by the Chancel- 
lor were mirrored Iasi week 
by foe Bank of England in its 
dealing tactics. The Bank was 
at its most severe in the 
money markets. Shortages 
were large, about £l billion a 
day. and foe Bank deployed a 
series of manoeuvres to grind 
down expectations that a 1 
per cent rale cut was just 
around the corner 

The Bank did not succeed 
completely, since foe Trea- 
sury bill tender on Friday 
intimated that foe bouses 
were still looking for a cut of 
V* point in base rates. But the 
authorities made foe houses 
pay dearly for their opti- 
mism, by locking them into a 
series of sale and repurchase 
agreements which became 
progressively more expensive 
as the week went on. Very 
short period rates remained 
firm at over 13 per cent. 

To this sober picture of 
rectitude, foe Bank managed 
to add an element of skittish- 
ness through its funding 
move late on Friday. 

The new slock. Conversion 
9 per cent 2,000, or Little 
Greeks, will be available 
today in partly paid form. 


meaning that no less than 
four HP stocks are now 
churning away in the markeL 
This must account for some 
of foe huge volumes traded in 
gilts during foe past six 
weeks. 

The logic behind foe move 
is dear.The Bank wanted a 
stock on the shelf if Opec goes 
well. Failing that, it needed a 
tap to catcb foe traders after 
the Chancellor had sat down 
after presumably delivering a 
mouth-watering inflation 
forecast. Will foe market hear 
3 per cent, or better? 

But foe net effect oflaunch- 
ing such a stock successfully 
on the gilts market ought to 
be to drive long yields down 
still further. Given the Bank's 
activities at foe short end, 
this means that foe steepness 
of the yield curve increases 
rather than diminishes. And 
ibis in turn makes the market 
far more volatile, not least 
because the relationship be- 
tween money market rates 
and inflation hopes is grow- 
ing more distant, as opposed 
to more proximate. 

Traders scratched their 
heads at these apparent 
irreconcilable^, and they were 
right to cogitate in the lull of 
battle. Especially striking is 
the realization that London 
pits offer far less compensa- 
tion than German bonds. 
With German inflation below 
1 per cent, real yields in 
Germany are aboui 5 per 
cent. Add that figure back to 
British inflation, and a target 
yield zone of about 10'A per 


cent can be constructed, 
about one percentage point 
higher than foe current struc- 
ture of returns. 

The snap rationalization is 
that central banks are fighting 
back, after foe surprise policy- 
initiatives of the past few 
weeks. The Bank of England 
may well be spearheading foe 
counter-attack, since alone of 
all the central tanks, it has 
the most fundamental ex- 
cuse. in terms of excess credit 
growth and the need to sell 
new monetary targets to the t 
markets, for delaying falls in 
rates. 

And traders know that 
once the Bank gets its hands 
on the policy levers, the short- : 
end may be disappointed, 
because the Bank will eke out 
the rate cuts. The long end is 
vulnerable anyway through 
international comparisons 
and the sudden departure of 
hot money from foe partly 
paid stocks. 

Traders should beware of a 
lo whipsaw factor in foe mar- 
ket. Base rates may fall this 
week, and they probabaly 
will. But on foe other hand, 
they might not, and even if 
they do. the next fall may be 
some time away. El negfecia 
soleni incendia sumere vires 
is as true now as it was a 
couple of thousand years ago. 
A bias in portfolios towards 
income, rather than capital 
growth may pay off in foe 
next few weeks.

THE TIMES MONDAY MARCH 17 1986. 


USM REVIEW 


Promotions House stalked 
by revitalized WPP 


Corporate bids and take- 
overs on the Unlisted Securi- 
ties Market are running at as 
high a level as on the Big 
Board. 

This is only to be expected 
as ratings on the secondary 
market have declined to a 
level at which they are attrac- 
tive to prospective purchasers 
and as USM chairmen discov- 
er that the joys of public status 
do not always compensate for 
the demands of such a role. 

An illustration of this trend 
came last week when one of 
the pioneer people businesses 
on the USM, Promotions 
House, found itself the target 
of an all-share bid from the 
acquisitive Wire and Plastic 
Products, a Kent manufactur- 
er. 

WPP had languished forgot- 
ten on the main market until 
last May when Mr Martin 
Sorrell, ‘finance director of 
Saatchi and Saatchi, and Mr 
Preston Rabl, a partner at 
Henderson Crosthwaite, the 
broker, took a 27 per cent 
stake with the aim of develop- 
ing the business into a diversi- 
fied services company. 

WPP has acquired two 
small private companies since 
November but the offer for 
Promotions House is much 
more ambitious and the 
company's first USM target 

Promotions House special- 
izes in providing incentive 
programmes for sales promo- 
tions, particularly in the travel 
markeL The value of the 
incentive is higher to the 
individual than the cost to 
Promotions House, which 


benefits from bulk discounts 
and hence draws its profits. 

Although below-the-line 
marketing services such as this 
company offers are perceived 
by the City as having tremen- 
dous growth potential Pro- 
motions House shares have 
not performed well because 
the management is poorly 
rated. The company came 
close to selling out to A & M 
Hire last year but could not 
agree terms. 

The market is looking for 
Promotions House to unveil 
pretax profits in the region of 
£1 million for 1985. WPFs 
offer of one share for i 5 values 
Promotions House shares at 
26'Ap, making an exit price 
earnings ratio of 1 1 times. 

The offer has not been 
agreed but. given that share- 
holders have the opportunity 
to trade in these uninspiring 
shares for the glamorous WPP 
paper where there is likely to 
be plenty of action, the bid 
looks assured of success. 

Another below-the-line 
marketing services specialist 
which wUI feature today is 
Counter Products Marketing, 
which is announcing its maid- 
en USM figures. It was floated 
in September. The company 
specializes in organizing field 
sales promotion teams and 
has a smaller but rapidly 
growing creative merchandis- 
ing consultancy. 

The pretax profit forecast in 
the prospectus was £1.04 mil- 
lion, giving earnings per share 
of 6.4p. This will be exceeded 


by an acceptable margin and 
the company looks set for £1.4 
million this year. The news 
appears to be discounted at 
the present share price of 
140p. 

Another company unveiling 
dts first set of interim figures 
since flotation last year is 
Blanchards, interior designers 
to Middle East princes and 
potentates. The company was 
founded in 1972. offering a 
comprehensive service in inte- 
rior design, decorating and 
furnishings. Commissions 
typically include palaces, em- 
bassies and private hotels. 

From the beginning the 
company has had a predomi- 
nantly international client 
base: in the year before flota- 
tion the bulk of turnover and 
profit came from work for 
Middle East clients, and the 
potential risk which this repre- 
sents has kept the price- 
earnings ratio to a more 
modest level than is usually 
seen with design companies. 

In the past 18 months the 
group has made efforts to 
broaden its activities and to 
build up business in Britain. 
New divisions indude a Lon- 
don estate agency. Kitchen 
and bathroom showrooms in 
Bristol are also profitable. 

The retail business in Brit- 
ain has widened its geographi- 
cal base, and is benefiting 
from the vogue for refurbish- 
ment of country bouses. The 
latest extension of the busi- 
ness is in landscape design 
which began as a sideways 
development but has now 


reached a level at which it can 
stand as a subsidiary in its 
own right. 

At the halfway stage the 
market is looking for profits of 
more than £350.000. which 
would represent an advance of 
50 per cent on last year, and 
leaves the full year estimate of 
£750.000 looking conserva- 
tive. 

Good news this week from 
Vkwplan, the Docklands 
company which hires televi- 
sion and audio visual equip- 
ment to broadcasting and 
television production compa- 
nies. The company has won a 
£300,000 contract with the US 
company. Home Box Office, 
to supply the bulk of the 
equipment for its TV village at 
Wimbledon this year, and the 
company is hoping to gain an 
even bigger contract for anoth- 
er overseas company. 

The shares were hammered 
in the market after unfav- 
ourable press comment on its 
depreciation charge (hire com- 
panies always find it difficult 
to satisfy the market that they 
are being sufficiently conser- 
vative and yet not over- 
providing for depreciation). 

Viewplan is likely to register 
a 40 per cent increase in pretax 
profits to £1 million this year 
(figures due in June) with a 
further advance to £1.5 mil- 
lion in 1987 as the benefits of 
heavy capital expenditure 
come through. Shares languish 
below the issue price at 98p 
and look a reasonable punt.

banks 


By Michael Prasti FtaanclarOHiespoiHl^ 

Tough proposals for control- banks as a practice note which range °T 

they wall be expected by the 

Bank of England to follow. 

Central bank sources admit 
that p utting precise figure to 
the sole of these risks is 


ling banks’ exposure to so- 
called off-bala nce-sheet 
transactions by placing them 
on the balance sheet have been 
made by a committee set up 


tiviues in which banks are 
involved-” 

The paper, which was 
drawn up by a sub-committee 
of the BIS’s Committee on 


made by a committee set up ^ ^ of , these risks is of the BIS’s Committee on 
by the Bank of International .. difficult But they- are certain Banking Regulations and Su- 
Settlements. that the scale is lug and that pervisory Practices, grades the 

The proposals of the com- i>ik» mmch«k m - x .anv> r»f risk nosed by the 

mittee, which is headed by Mr 
peter Cooke of the Bank of 
England, also cover balance 
sheet reporting and the setting 
up of parameters for assessing 
the risks involved. . = 

The proposals are designed . _ 

to lay to rest mounting fore ™>*f repnsems a significant: behind a third party - arc 
about the extent of banks'.. additional risk to banks fond- regarded as direct credit sub- 
exposure to a wide range of * n 8 strategies. •• : . - - - and therefore rated a 

mostly recently invented in- Mqrcov«\ the paper re *-«« **■.+ «« 

• ... t 1 scathing abour the way in 


including these exposures on 
the balance sheet will auto- 
matically cause banks to re- 
consider their activities in 
these markets. 

The paper says: “ The 
coisnntee has concluded that 
the rapid growth of commix-' 
xnents represents a significant 


of risk posed by tite 
different instruments as full 
risk” ‘’medium risk" and 
-low risk." The criterion is the 
extent of the bank’s credit 
exposure. 

So guarantees and accep- 
" tarices —when the bank stands 
behind a third 


struments in the options, fu- 
tures, guarantee and. 
securitization markets. But 
they could significantly in- 
crease banks' reporting . and 
managment control costs. . 

A consultative paper issued 
today and sent to more than 
100 central banks says bluntly; 
“The main conclusion of this 
paper is that the individual 
types of risk associated with 
most off-balance-sheet busi- 
ness are in principle no differ- 
ent from those associated with 
on-balance-sheet business.” 

The paper continues “It 
therefore suggests that off- 
balance-sheet risks caimtit and 


GroiipofTen . 
orders _ # . .

of reporting 

which Such exposures are 
reported, lx says: “Many su- 
pervisors consider that the. 
information ■ about off-bal- 
ance-sheet exposures present- 
ly supplied in banks* 
published accounts is general- 
ly insufficient to give share- 
holders and depositors a 
reasonable picture of banks’

from on-balance-sheet busi- 
ness, but should be regarded 
as an integral part of banks* 
overall risk profiles.” 

It is likely that before the 
end of this year the main 
proposals outlined in the pa- 
per will be sent to British 


gree of detail is deemed neces- 
sary in different countries, 
supervisory authorities in the 
Group of Ten (the biggest 
industrial economies) intend 
to review their existing sys- 
tems of reporting as a matter 
of urgency to ensure that they 
adequately capture the full 


foil risk. But an endorsement 
to a bill which already has 
other banks' names on it is a 
low risk. 

The authors admit that 
assessing the risk posed by 
some instruments such as note 
jypianrw facilities and revolv- 
ing underwriting foci lines may 
depend on the nature of the 
commitment and the ability of 
the baok to handle it. 

The paper says: "The com- 
mittee recognises that some of 
the newer instruments — nota- 
bly NIFs (note issuance facili- 
ties) - have challenged the 
distinction between tradition- 
ally drawn contingents and 
commitments.” 

It is stressed that the size of 
these new operations and the 
absence in some cases of 
proper accounting control can 
leave a bank unknowingly 
excessively exposed to a single 
counter party. It urges banks 
to have formal written policies 
for all trading and to take a 
worldwide consolidated ap- 
proach to risk supervisiion.

Profits soar to £3 .5m 
at Hawtal Whiting 


Hawtal Whiting Holdings, 
an industrial design company, 
doubled turnover to £26.17 
million in the year to Decem- 
ber 31, but gave a warning that 
£4 million of the increase 
arose from subcontracted 
tooling and assembly work on 
which there was only marginal 
profit. 

Nonetheless, pretax profit 
soared from £21 1,000 to £3.52 
million, with most of the 
growth coming from the ex- 
pansion of British design oper- 
ations. 

The dividend is increased 
from 1.5p 10 7p, 

Hawtal Whiting is engaged 


on nine important automobile 
design programmes, eight of 
them tor General Motors. 
This compares with four big 
programmes at the beginning 
oflastyear. 

Notwithstanding the de- 
cline of the dollar, the compa- 
ny did not make any pnce 
increases last year and Haims 
a competitive price advantage 
overcomelition in the United 
States. 

The first phase of the reloca- 
tion from Coventry to Leam- 
ington, Warwickshire, took 
place last January, and design 
engineering on the new site is 
fully operational

And in the past six years they have 
launched no less than 14 new models ranging 
from 6 tonnes to 250 tonnes. 

All of which explains why on average, 
over one million pounds worth of Levland 
trucks are sold everv working day. 




In January and February of 1986 Levland 
Trucks registered more, trucks in Britain than 

any other manufacturer. 

Last year they exported trucks worth £77

. .. .. ratv i rf the eye. For instance: our ehgineers actually 
alongside the people who design and build our 
c-^mrwLers. So they ran bring their held experience to 
b»\ir on the way our computers are made, as well as 

developing maintenance programmes. 

If ihev see a potential maintenance problem 
looming up in a design they can nip it in the hud 


before the first machine is ever built 

They also make sure that a complete maintenance 
programme is ready to go into operation before any new 
machine ever goes on the market 

So spare parts and test equipment are ready to 
support you right from day one. 

If a problem does occur. IBM Customer Engineers 
can refer all the way back to our man atthe drawing board 


if necessary. \Xe believe that on] v IBM can offer you this 
depth of expertise. After all. we knew even thing about 
(he servicing ot your computer it was even built.

A guide to 
career choice 


Should you view TV as a job? 


Bruce Parker, presenter of the regional 
news-magazine programme. South To- 
day . is well-known to viewers in the 
BBC South area. Bruce prefers the title 
TV journalist. People think his job is 
glamorous, not realizing that the eve- 
ning programme is the culmination of a 
day spent gathering news, and scripting 
and editing some of his own stories- 

“Preseming the programme is almost 
incidental” he says. “I may get to the 
studio only eight minutes before we go 
on air.” The day's work has been 
wherever the news stories have hap- 
pened, so it is a job requiring waterproof 
jacket, hat and wellies rather ’ than 
business suit. A 1 4-hour day is not 
uncommon. 

On air, he needs to think on his feet, 
anticipating problems. Anyone can read 
from an autocue, but presenters may 
have to alter their scripts, ad fib or deaf 
with an item that comes in during 
transmission. Off-the-air timing is tight 
Last week. Bruce was still feeding the 
third main story on the national news 
“up the line” to London two minutes 
after the bulletin had started. 

Most people working in television do 
not appear on the screen. The BBC has 
30,000 employees (television and ra- 
dio): ITV companies vary, from 
Thames with more than 2,000 staff to 
Channel TV with 70. Of these, only a 
handful are familiar faces. Jobs in TV 
fall into five main areas: technical: 
creative, including directors, designers, 
make-up artists: a combination of both 
— camera, sound, vision mixing: jour- 
nalistic researchers, news writers, jour- 
nalists. and administrative staff. 
Performers — actors, dancers and 
entertainers - are not directly employed 
by companies, but paid on a freelance 
basis. 


Beginning a series on 
the media, Beryl Dixon 
looks at the most 
glamorous section 


pets and radio after university. Spend- 
ings period in lie regions and becoming 
trusted by London to send in national 
news items is a good training ground for 
national TV. 

Michael Buerik, Jenni Murray and 
Kate Adie all be^n in local radio, 
moved to BBC South television and 
then to national news and current 
affairs. Andrew Harvey of the Nine 
o’clock News, Bob Wellings and many 
senior figures in the BBC current-affairs 
hierarchy are also products of the BBC 
South newsroom, and Glyn Mathias 
crossed to 1TN after working there as an 
off-screen journalist- 

Lucky breaks help, but people who 
make things happen for themselves are 
more likely tok succeed. Bruce Parker 
was writing for his local paper at 1 4, and 
at university freelanced for Fleet Street 
papers, including The Times. After 
university he taught for several years 
but at the same time talked his way into 
a job with Channel Islands Schools 
Radio. Then he persuaded the BBC in 
Bristol that a reporter was needed in the 
Channel Islands. 

Next came the offer of a nilMune 
contract from BristoL and he had to take 
a risk. He left his safe teaching job. Then 
came a spell in Brighton, followed by 
the move to Southampton, where he is 
still employed on a contract basis. 

Training schemes do exist for produc- 
ers, studio managers, news reporters, 
make-up artists and technical staff, 
mainly with the BBC. In addition to the 
graduate schemes, courses are .run 
periodically for make-up artists and 




*• 4 1 








Some succeed by writing 
speculative letters 


Television is. of course, made up of 
different companies: the BBC with its 
two channels: and independent televi- 
sion — 15 programme companies under 
different ownership but working in a 


57 T&Hfcaratfrannt 

Kate Adie: A start in local radio 

letters — some jobs are advertised: in the 
national press. The Listener (BBC) and 
Broadcast (ITV). 

In every case it is imperative to 
understand the job's requirements, and 
apply only if qualified. TV companies 
are inundated with letters from hopefuls 
wanting to do “anything in television”. 
Says one personnel officer “l feel like 
replying, saying that I have passed their 
letters to the manager of the Anything 
department” 

Individual job titles vary in ITV and 
BBC but the following positions nor- 
mally require relevant experience or 
participation in one of the few well- 
regarded courses such as those at 


normally every vear for audio and 
camera staff, the 'latter schemes being 


camera staff, the latter schemes being 
opened to young people with science O 
levels. 

Training in ITV is more patchy. Some 


Electronic engineers are 
in short supply 


network, showing some programmes 
simultaneously nationwide; ITN, which 
is jointly owned by all 1 5 companies; 
TV-am. and Channel 4. differing from 
the others in that it produces no 
programmes and therefore employs 
neither production nor camera staff. 

Now for the all-important question: 
how to get in? Rumours abound that 
you must be an Oxbridge graduate. Ves. 
■ numerous Oxbridge graduates work in 
TV. The BBC runs three prestige 
training schemes for graduates in pro- 
duction. news and studio management 
Of 749 applicants for the news trainee 
scheme last year, 1 30 came from Oxford 
and Cambridge. 

Getting in depends on a combination 
of qualifications, timing and luck. The 
right qualification is vital. Many jobs 
are highly specialized, requiring specific 
qualifications or experience. Some peo- 
ple get them by writing speculative 


Ravensboume in south London: pre- 
senters (ITV) “link” programmes, often 
ad-libbing. Previous experience in en- 
tertainment is usually required, al- 
though traineeships are occasionally 
advertised. News readers, current af- 
fairs and documentary presenters are 
often experienced journalists or re- 
searchers. 

Set and costume designers have art- 
school backgrounds. Lighting directors, 
transmission controllers and vision 
mixers usually have relevant skills and 
experience in some aspect of television. 
Producers, at ITV at least, have a 
variety of backgrounds, often as direc- 
tors. while production assistants, re- 
sponsible for all programme 
arrangements from administration to 
continuity, are former secretaries. 

Most journalists in TV come from 
newspaper journalism or local radio, 
and most have degrees. Debbie Thrower 
at BBC South started in local newspa- 


schemes exist but independent compa- 
nies rely more heavily on recruiting 
against a specific vacancy and providing 
any necessary training or recruiting 
from certain colleges and giving top up 
training. Only four companies have full- 
time training officers. There is also a 
strong tradition of poaching experi- 
enced staff from the BBC. 

An area in which it is' usually 
possisble to find employment is engi- 
neering. Television is suffering, like the 
rest of Britain, from a shortage of 
electronic engineers. r 

One tradition started by the BBC and 
followed by the independent companies 
is that of allowing established employ- 
ees to re-train for other jobs, so that, 
with the warning that it is for from an 
automatic process, it is possible to get 
your foot in the door and work your way 
up. 

Careers leaflets are available from the 
BBC Appointments Department, 
Broadcasting House. London WIA 
1 AA, and a book. Careers in T eleyision, 
published by the ITV Companies 
Association, is available in bookshops. .

FOOTBALL: THE DECLINE IN PLAYERS* STANDARDS.OF BEHAVIOUR CONTINUES 


More pitching in on the pitch 


By Stoart Jones* 
Football Correspondent 


Arsenal—. * 
West Ham. 


Those who go to motor 
racing for the crashes, to horse 
racing for the fells and to 
boxing for the knockouts, can 
now add football to their list 
of potential Wood sports. The 
fights that were once staged 
with frightening intensity on 
the terraces would seem to be 
taking place with increasing 
regularity on the pitch. 

A digest of statistics, pub- 
lished by the Football Trust 
last week* confirmed that the 
standard of League players 1 
behaviour has dropped sieadi- 


with justification, be accused 
of inconsistency and some of 
them of officiousness; but they 
cannot Warned for the general 
lack of discipline. At 
Highbury, on Saturday, the 
behaviour of some players was 
stunning in its utter futility 
and disturbing for its gratu- 
itous violence. 

Realistically, neither Arse- 
nal nor West Ham United 
have anything to look forward 
to this season. The derby 
occasion and, on a sunlit 
afternoon that suggested 
spring was waiting to be 
ushered in, made the setting

have expected the show to 
sparkle with entertainment . 


stumbling into a disgraceful 

firm If 

West Ham* enduring their 
third awkward visit within six 
days, at least attempted to 
pfey attractively in die first 
half McAvennie, a scoring 
machine that moved as swiftly 
as ever, for once foiled to 
finish. He missed two 
unmistakeable opportunities 
and Cotree, his partner who is 
almost equally -as prolific, 
foiled to take another. 

Arsenal spent almost an 
hour in fashioning their first 
move of any consequence. At 
the end of it, Parkes reacted 
less convincingly, from Hayes; 
than he did later when he' 
clutched Woodcock's deliber- 


hmd. Yet he was for from 
being alone in acting in a 
distasteful manner. 

Pike, Ward and Rocastle 
were involved in one altezca* 
don. Gale and Rocastle m 
another.. Then came the ex- 
traordinary' episode between 
O’Leary and Martin, two of 
the more honest and responsi- 
ble individuals in football. In 
exchanging a variety of blows 
off an<f on for three minutes 
and with the ball an irrelevan- 
cy, they might have been

ly over the last IS years. In 
1971, for instance, 90S were 
booked. By 1984 the figure 


had climbed to 4,067. During 
the same period the number of 
dismissals rose from 37 to a 
record level of 229 in 1981 
This season both totals are 
threatening to reach new 
heights. Referees can st3L 


But WfiUams, who sadly 
continues to hide his talent 
behind a thoroughly unpleas* 
ant facade* immediately be- 
trayed any such hopes. For a 
typically wild and unnecessary 
assault on Cottee, he was 
booked in the opening minute 
and thereafter the game 
lurched untidily from one 
skirmish to another before 


alely curled drive; burin the 
75th minute several of his 
colleagues showed no willing- 
ness to react at all to a comer 
and Woodcock promptly 
claimed the winner. 

Arsenal, woeful until the 
change of ends, improved; but 
the tempers did not Rix* 
whose contribution before the 
interval was so feeble that he 
should seriot^y consider do- 
nating half of his week’s wages 
to charity, was cautioned for 
cutting down Ward from be- 


the first round. 

Martin* with an elbow to the 
face that dropped O’Leaiy to 
his knees, won with a techni- 
cal fcnockoot. Whereupon sev- 
eral others' joined in the ngjy 
fray- The referee, who took. 
Martin’s name at the opening 
of the bout, sent him off after 
consulting with a linesman. So 
ended a week for West Ham’s 
captain that bad started with 
him le ading the side to an FA 
Cup victory at Old Traffbrd. 

Astonishingly, O’Leary es- 
caped p unishme nt — if only 
temporarily. ' Don -Howe, 
Arsenal’s manager, is to study 
a video before deciding wheth- 
er lo take any action. “There 


be said “It was highly com- 
petitive because they were 
fighting for their pride.. For 
once the fewiHfor description 
was literally acc ur a t e. 

Howe, added that as be 
knows both players we ll (b e 
and Martin will meet again 
when the England squa d gath - 
ers next weekend), he appreci- 
ates drat neitlHHrrf them likes 
to lose. “Of course, I don t 
condone anyone throwing 
punches but they are co mpcti- 
tive characters and they were 
giving their all*" he sakL 

John LyaQ admitted that 
Martin's automatic suspen- 
sion will be a “big Wow for 
him and West Ham and I pot 
the incident down to 
frustration’'. Nevertheles s, the 
pair of experienced intenra- 
tionaJs cannot be excused for 
setting such an appalling ex- 
ample.

United’s hopes are scotched 


By Simon O’Hagan 


Queen’s Park I 
Manchester Ur 



Anybody who can drink- a 
glass of lemonade without no tic- * 
ing the absence of the whisky 
that it was supposed to have 
accompanied must have a lot on 
bis mind. Such was the state of 
Ron Atkinson, the Manchester 
United manager, after his side's 
chances of winning the first 
division bad receded even fur- 
ther at Queen’s Paric Rangers on 
Saturday. 

It was not only Atkinson's 
drink that needed more kick. 
Much the same could be said of 
a team perform ance-which, after 


EVerton's draw with Chelsea 
yesterday .leaves them seven 
points behind the leaders. Un- ' 
less you are a United supporter 
it is hard to believe that earlier 
in - ihe season the club had led 


incessant gunw±«wtng might 
have been mistaken for the 
gnashing of teeth. As a source of 
comfort in his hour of near- 
desperation he turned to the 


the table by l 1 points. 

. United's decline since the end 


of last year makes idling statis- 
tical reading five defeats, two 
draws and only three wins 
(against Oxford United. Bir- 
mingham City and West 
Bromwich Albion) in their last 
10 matches. The nightmare of 
just missing the championship 
seems to be afflicting Atkinson 
as much as it has any United 
manager since Matt Busby. 

To Atkinson's credit he re- 
fused to be fatalistic, even if his 


from Nottingham Forest Iasi 
week . . . 

Ami by way of unde r li n i n g his 
performance. Wicks provided 
the flick-on from which Byrne 
scored Rangers’ winning goal 
nin e minutes from the end.

Loss 


By Nicholas Harling 


Charlton Athletic 
Portsmouth 




Level-beaded: United’s McGrath (left) and McDonald of 
QPR are equal to the aerial demands, as Bannister lurks. 


-The prospect of first division 
football at Selhuzst Park next 
season receded a little on Sat- 
unlay when Chariton Athletic 
lost the match they had to win. 
On this evidence there seems 
little Hang ar of the ground's 
tenants fram in g on caviar while 
Crystal Palace, the landlords, 
continue to nibble away ax fish 
fingers. 

While Palace were losing at. 
Oldham, Chariton, whose re- 
cent run had promised so much, 
lost to a Portsmouth ride whose 
own recent form had suggested 
they would not last the pact 
Such are foe delightful . vagaries 
of footbalL 

Coincidentally, it was Mike. 
Quinn, lately of Oldham, who 
contributed to Chariton’s de- 
feat. Although he did not score 
on his debut. Portsmouth's 
£80,000 aoquisilioo looked to be 
the kind of player his club need 
to fulfill their promotion aspira- 
tions. ’ 

It was after Quinn, going for 
Knight’s long kick downfieJd. 
bad for once failed to gain a 
connection that Channon fas- 
tened onto the ball, giving 
Portsmouth a seventh minute 
lead. When the giant Pearson 


nodded Chariton level from 
Aizlewood's deep cross 11 min- 
utes later; it looked like we were 
in for a cracker. Yet although 
the best goal was soon to come — 
O'Callaghan 's instant volley af- 
ter Aiztewood had beaded out 
Kennedy’s long throw — the 
match deterior a ted as a spec- 
tacle. - 


Allison is left 
speechless 
by his sacking 


There was plenty of effort. 
. mainly from Chariton as they 
pursued a second equalizer; but 
the - Londoners lacked subtlety. 
Aten Bad, the Portsmou th ma n- 
ager, said of his team’s scuffling 
resistance: “ft’s difficult to play 
when teams' are hitting balls 
longand high arid there seem to 
be an awful lot of teams doing 
that nowadays.” ’ Chariton, 
though, were helped neither by 
Curbisbky’s withdrawal at hal£ 
time wiffl a vinm. infection, nor 
by Poftrinouth deverly malting 
them play to their own strengths 
at the back, which are the heads 
of Gilbert and Blake. 

Yet with a talented winger, 
Stuart, * having come on for

Putting 

minds 

to the job 
in hand 

By VtaceWr igfat 

Involvement in the fater 
rounds of either of the two main 
domestic cop competitions of- 
ten makes players regard League 
matches as a distractioaTHow^ 
ever, .on Saturday, most of the 
mam stiBleft in the FA Cup 
and Milk Ctip refused to tet their 
minds wander and concentrated 
on the business of coflectme 

thr ee po ints. 

Southampton were the odd 
sxte'oat, but then it is never a 
disgrace to lose to UvopeoL a 
crowd of 19.784 - the biggest of 

the season at the Dell - saw this 

possible dress rehearsal for the 
FA Cup sertri-finaL Lawrence 
gave -Southampton a 49th 
minute lead by squeezing the 
ball home from -an i mp ro ba ble 

angte. but Liverpool quickly 
equalized through Wark and 
then Rush sconsda brilliant goal 
for the winner. The result win 
put Liverpool in good heart for 
tonight's. sixth round replay at 
Watford and has increased the 
prospect of a League and FA 
Cup double on Merseyside. 

Watford win probably have 
something to say about that a 
scrambled goal by their centre 
half, Terry, after 73 minutes 
enabled than to- win a low-key 
affair at Maine Road. Manches- 
ter City, their opponents, squan- 
dered . chances to build a 
comfortabfc half-time lead and 
have no goals or points to show 
from them last five matches. - ' 

Sheffield Wednesday, who 
play Evertoh in the other FA 
Cup semi-final, beat Coventry 
City away for their third victory 
in eight days. Sleriartd scored 
the only goal but Wednesday 
were more grateful to Hodge, 
their goalkeeper, who denied 
Regis (twice) and Brazil with 
acrobatic saves. 

Maurice Evans, nmnpgw of 
Oxford United, the Milk Cup 
finalists, has said that a safe 
League position is -more im- 
portant 10 the club than glory at 
Wembley, so be win have been 
delighted by his team's 2-1 
success against a jaded Lamn 
Town. A penalty by Aldridge - 
bis 24lh goal of the season - 
cancelled out Preece's early 
effort and Charles punished 
Luton farther. It was only the 
third time that Lmon have lost 
on their artificial surface. 

Bobby Robson, the England 
manager, was at St Andrew’s, 
where Tottenham Hotspar, by 
winning 2-1. deepened Bir- 
mingham City's gloom. Waddle 
had a fine match; ™dcin B 
Tottenham's first goal for Ste- 
vens and sooritg the second 
himself 

Wimbledon's long-ball game, 
may not be everyone's aip of tea 
but nobody can deny hs effec- 
tiveness. The 2-0 defeat of 
Fulham at Craven Oottame im- 
proves the chances of Wunbfo- 
don beco.ming^hfc; WPEH 
supported dub. ever lo be pro?

Sanchez and Cork scored the 
goals and just to prove that it 
was not Fulham's day, Barnett 
missed a penalty. 

Hearts in 
position 
to dictate 

For the first time this season. 
Heart of Midlothian arc fa a 
position 10 win the Scottish 
League premier division by 
their own efforts rather than 
relying on the mistakes of the 
other challengers. A 2-0 win on 
Saturday over Motherwell, who 
are bottom of the table, co- 
incided with Dundee United, 
Aberdeen and Celtic each drop- 
ping a point. , „ 

At the turn of year* Hearts 
could have been overtaken by 
United, Aberdeen and Critic but 
goals from MacDonald and 
Robertson enabled them to 
equal the premier division 
record of 21 League games 
without defeat, lifting, them 
three points dear of United. 

Celtic and Dundee Unit ed did 
themselves no favours by draw- 
mg 1-1 m an umidy match at 
Parkbead where United's -Hob 
was ordered off two minutes 
from the end after collecting two 
bookings. David Hay, tire CWnc.. 
manager, conceded: Hearts 
hare got to be favourites now. 
even although they hare a lot of 
hard games coming up. It se em s 
that everyone rise is trying. to 
give them the tide.**.

RACING: TURNELL TO SEEK ENGLISH-IRISH NATIONAL DOUBLE WITH TRACYS SPECIAL AND MAORI VENTURE 



Emandar looks in Sangster’s 
different league 


By Mandarin 


Peter Scudamore, the leading rider, completes a Chepstow four-timer with a victory on Celtic Fleet 

Last Suspect spot on for Aintree again 


By Michael Seely 

Last Suspect showed him- 
self to be on target fora second 
consecutive Grand National 
win when beating Corbiere by 
IS lengths in the Marathon 
Chase at Chepstow on Satur- 
-day. “I though we were beat 
when Broadhealh went dear,” 
Tun Forster, the trainer, said 
yesterday, “bat after that he 
went through them Eke a knife 
through butter. I'm delighted 
with the horse, but li ghtning 
seldom strikes in the same 
place twice.” Forster himself 
will be bidding fin: a fourth 
National victory. 

David Stait, Jenny Pitman's 
assistant expressed himsrif as 
being satisfied with Corbiere’s 
performance in finishing sec- 
ond as the old warrior is being 
prepared to improve on his 
previous record of one victory 
and two thirds in the Nation- 
aL “We couldn't have hoped 
to beat Last Suspect at those 
weights,” he said “Corbiere 
will now have a couple of days 


hunt 
bei 

Andy Tnrael! was a trainer 
with his thoughts on two 
Nationals after his horse, 
Maori Venture, had shown the 
well being of the East Hendred 
team by beating Port Askaig in 
the Bic Orange Razor Handi- 
cap at JLmgneld Park. “Maori 
Venture stays well and I'd like 
to run him fa the Irish Grand 
National if he gets a reason- 
able weight” Turn ell said 

Tumefl lhen went on to talk 
about his Aintree hope, 
Tracy’s Special, who failed to 
complete the course in last 
week's Rite Club Chase at 
Cheltenham. “His reins got in 
a tangle after a mistake,” he 
said “So Steve Knight had to 
pufi him up. I might give him 
another run at Newbury at the 
weekend 

“He missed nearly two sea- 
sons, but I think I've got him 
right now,” Tomefl went on 
and with only lOst 31b to cany 
he's got a reasonable racing 
weight” 


Negative National news, 
however, came from Newcas- 
tle after Peaty Sandy had 
surpassed himself by gaining 
his eighth course victory in the 
Mercedes Benz Chase. Helen 
Hamilton, the 12-year-old's 
trainer, said that Peaty Sandy 
would now be aimed at the 
Scottish' National, provided 
that the ground is not too firm. 
And Jimmy Fitzgerald is un- 
certain about the immediate 
future of Canny Danny, who 
was pulled up at the fourth 
fence from home. 

“If he's alright, we might 
give huh another race and see 
how he gets on,” Fitzgerald 
said, “but we might find that 
the five week freeze-up has 
prevented ns from getting 
Canny Danny ready for the 
National” 

Fitzgerald also reported 
Forgive 'n' Forget to be suffer- 
ing from sore shins after his 
gallant third to Dawn Run in 
last Thursday’s Cheltenham 
Gold Cop. “He lost 22 kOos 
and is feeling a bit sorry for 


himself", the trainer said. “He 
may not run again this 
season”. 

Peter Easterby continued in 
sparkling form at Gosforth 
Park and John O'Neill's dou- 
ble on Withy Bank . and 
Hunslet gave the versatile 
Mai ton trainer his seventh 
win in the past nine racing 
days. These victories will also 
have given heart to supporters 
of Well Rigged, who has been 
backed down from 14-1 to 
favouritism at 8-1 for the 
£25,000 W illiam Hffl Lincoln 

Ladbrokes have wade Steve 
Cauthen favourite at 11-8 on 
to become champion jockey 
for the third successive year 
when the 2986 Flat racing 
season begins at Doncaster on 
Thursday. They then offer 7-4 
against Willie Carson, 6-1 Pat 
Eddery and 14-1 Brent Thom- 
son. With Walter Swinburn 
likely to be riding for Lester 
Piggott as well as Michael 
Stoute, the 40-1 on offer 
against this stylish jockey may 
be a little generous. 


The result of Saturday's Blc 
Razor Gold Cop underlined the 
advantage that horses with a run 
since the freeze have over those 
without. Inlander and Moon 
Mariner, fourth and sixth in the 
Imperial Cup a week earlier, had 
the finish of the valuable 
Lingfield race between than. 

With that in mind, I expect 
four of today's six races at 
Newcastle to be woo by horses 
with a recent race under their 
belt. Two of that quartet, DAN 
THE MILLAR (3.15) and 
DANISH FLIGHT (3.45), ran 
in the Waterford . Crystal Su- 
preme Novices' Hurdle at 
Cheltenham last Tuesday. 

Neither finished in tbe first 10 
behind River Gsriog bat their 
previous form bears close 
inspection and tbe fact that 
Monica Dickinson and Jimmy 
Fitzgerald chose to run them at 
the Festival at all is aa indica- 
tion of toe high regard in which 
they are held. 

LING HALL, who won at 
Catterick the first day after 
racing returned following the 
cold speU, missed a tempting 
point-to-point engagement on 
Saturday to wait for the 
Hart burn Novices' Hunter 
Chase 

Another lady trainer with 
bright prospects of saddling a 
winner is Mary Reveley, who is 
already enjoying her best season 
over jumps and has an improv- 
ing handkapper in LUCYLET 
(4.45). 

For the day's best bet, though, 
1 take EMANDAR to gain his 
second win over fences in toe 
Bran ton Novices* Chase. Harry 
Wharton's seven-year-old beat 
the subsequent Sun Alliance 
Chase winner. Cross Master, at 


Nottingham in December and 
then had the misfortune to come 
up a gainst A Sure Row at 
Haydock the following month. 
He meets nothing of that calibre 
today. 

At Plmnpton, the former hfab- 
riass chaser, ROYAL JUDGE- 
MENT, runs in the first division 
of the Clapper Challenge Cup 
Hunters' Chase and he need 
only have retained a measure of 
his old sparkle to make a 
successful seasonal debut 

GATHABAWN was haviag 
bis first run for more than four 
months when a close fourth to 
Party Miss at Newton Abbot 
last Wednesday and would not 
have to improve much on that to 
win the Eton Batchers Challenge 
Trophy. 

Martin Pipe's Ol fortune at 
Cheltenham was crowned at the 
weekend when two of Us horses. 
Bob And Peter and Waikiki, 
were killed. The Wellington 
trainer's lack can only get better 
and he should score with his 
only runner of the day, SILVER 
ACE. who will be chasing his 
fourth win from Us last five 
starts in toe Bolney Amateur 
Riders' Handicap Chase. 

Of most interest at Wolver- 
hampton today will be the 
hunter chase debut of 
RATTUN JACK (44)- John 
Wilkinson's hom e -bred seven- 
year-old is unbeaten in four 
pofat-to-poiuts and was most 
impressive when winning a di- 
vision of the adjacent hunts in 
toe fastest time of the day at the 
Oakley nine days ago. 

My other’ principal fancy at 
tbe Midlands track is POLLEN 
BEE, who was backward when 
ninth in a big field on his debut 
at Warwick in February,

grip is 
threatened 

The Irish Flat racing season 
traditionally gets underway on 
Si Pal rick's Day and (986 is no 
exception. Leopardstown today 
being the opening programme 
(Our Irish Racing Correspon- 
dent writes). 

For the first time since, he 
embarked upon his astonish- 
ingly successful partnership 
with Vincent O'Brien, Robert 
Sangster could have a strong 
challenger for the title of leading 
owner. Sheikh Mohammed has 
greatly stepped up his interest in 
Irish racing and in the new 
season he will have more horses 
in training with Kevin 
Prendergasi at the Curragh and 
David O’Brien in Tipperary 
than anyone else. Between them 
these two trainers will handle 
almost 40 of the Sheik's bred-in- 
ihe-purpie thoroughbreds. 

By all accounts he should not 
have long to wait for a Kevin 
Prendergast success as his 
horses are reported to be 
amongst the most forward at the 
Curragh. There is quite a tip for 
Harry Quinn, trained by 
Prendergasi for his wife, in the 
Castro! Two-Vear-Okl Maiden 
which opens proceedings 

Harry Quinn cost £71,000 
guineas as a yearling, but is 
drawn three from the outside 
and could meet his match in 
Keen Cut. who is favoured by a 
rails draw in this 10-runner 
field. Keen Cut is trained by 
Derraot Weld and will be ridden 
by Michael Kinane, the respec- 
tive winners of the trainers' and 
jockeys' titles in Ireland last 
season. 

Little went right for Jim 
Bolger in 19SS, but he is hopeful 
ofa much improved scoring rate 
this term and the well-tuned 
Northern Date can take home 
the most valuable race for 

ounger horses today, the 

lurmah Castro! Trophy. 

For this national holiday Irish 
racegoers have a choice of three 
fixtures with the jumpers 
dominating the action at both 
Down Royal and Limerick. T wo 
Aintree Grand National 
hopefuls. Drumlargan and 
Kilkilowen. take one another on 
in the Allied Irish St Patricks 
Day Handicap Chase ai Down 
Royal.

POINT-TO-POINT 


Polly Toodle Toodle 
signs off with a win 


By Brian Beel 


Polly Toodle Toodle. aged 14 
and the mother of two foals, 
beat the well fancied Dawn 
Street, on merit in the fastest 
time of the day at tbe New 
Forest meeting on Saturday. 
Admirably ridden by Jane 
Southcombe, her chance 
seemed to have evaporated 
when she hit the last open ditch 
and let Alison Dare gain a length 
or two advantage on the 
favourite. Tbe game mare, run- 
ning her last race before return- 
ing to stud, bad other ideas, 
fought back to lead at the last 
ana held on to win by a neck. 

Eddie Whettam suffered the 
misfortune of losing his useful 
ex-handicapper, Herr Capitan. 
who broke a fetlock just before 
the line at the same meeting in 
the open race won by Seamus 
Mullins on Foot Slick. Mullins 
rode winners in Ireland for 


and owned by his brother, 
followed last year. 

Tbe Audi qualifier heir went, 
as expected, to Tawny Myth, 
who will now face City Boy. the 
MM Surrey Fanners winner in 
the Sandown final Tim Thom- 
son Jones did not have things 
entirely his own way as City Boy 
was hard pressed to two fences 
out by Like a Lord. This one 
looks sure to win good races in 
the coming weeks. 

Charles Crosxbwaite made no 
mistakes on Never Deemed, the 
winner of tbe equivalent race at 
the Bolventor and Able Sailor, 
with Simon Andrews aboard, 
won bis race at the Cottesmore 
unextended. The form horses.

Niece, won the two divisions at 
the Oxford University, Luke 
Harvey deputising for Peter 
G nee nail on Naughty Niece, 
while Greenall went to the 
Golden Valley to be beaten a 
neck on Robson, but to win on 
his five-year-old. Sandidiffe 
Boy, in the third of four maiden 
races. 

There appears to be no solu- 
tion to the problem of prostrate 
horses and bodies on the landing 
side of a fence on the second 
circuit. No one has the authority 
to wave the horses round and 
any horse missing the fence is 
automatically disqualified. 

In another division of the 
maiden race this perennial prob- 
lem occured again when there 
was dearly no room with two 
riders lying seriously injured. 

With her win on Swarm, in 
the ladies race at the Cambridge 
Harriers. Josie Sheppard 
brought her total to 170, only 
one behind Pat TolHt's record. 
Not to be outdone, her brother, 
David Turner, increased his 
number of winners to 322 when 
he look the first division of the 
maiden on Sharagain. 

There was another brother 
and sister success at the 
Tivyside. David Stephens scor- 
ing a double with Rock Candy 
and Premons Last and Jo- 
sephine Williams winning the 
. ladies on Ashburton. 

There was probably a good 
reason why Lucy Crow pulled 
up Smile HilL the odds-on 
favourite, when in third place in 
a division of the adjacanl race at 
Sir W W Wynn’s but the 
stewards appeared to be dis- 
interested. She went on to 
record her second winner

Rugby Union: French round off international season with dazzling sleight of hand 

English fight no match for flair “f , 


From David Hands 
Rugby Correspondent 

Paris 


France 

England 


Scotland and France, the 
old alliance, share this 
season's Five Nations cham- 
pionship. They deserve it, 
though France are the more 
complete team. How they 
must be kicking themselves 
for conceding six penalties to 
Gavin Hastings at 
-Murrayfield in their opening 
match, and how worthy is 
Scotland's success in that they 
have met the challenge of 
rugby as it is played today with 
such limited resources. 

On Saturday,England had a 
presentiment of their fate at 
the Parc des Princes as early as 
the first scrum, when the 
forwards on whom so much 
hope was pinned, were pushed 
off their own scrummage ball. 
Thereafter, their challenge for

; -a share in this season's hon- 
ours could be seen as an 
illusion, as hazy as the Paris 
dawn they left behind yester- 
day. as the competitive future 
of the game in England and 
the individual career of Mel- 
ville. their captain. 

Melville was not the side's 
only casually in a match 
played at a furious pace. 
Davies, trying with desperate 
bravery to deny Laporte a try, 
fell on the point of the same 
shoulder which was damaged 
'against Scotland, and was 
replaced by Barnes before the 
rinterval. But not even the 
-.‘most ardent Anglophile would 
'"suggest that either injury 
fjShould detract from France's 
•win by two goals, two tries, 
i.and three penalty goals to a try 
’ and two penalties. 

•;I The French approach was 


ease with which England had 
been tossed aside. 

With two. long cut-out 
passes, France freed Bonneval 
on his own 22; Charvet, his . 
Toulouse colleague, supported “ 
him, and as Barnes and Un- 'f 
derwood homed in on him on 
England's 22, Charvet slowed 
and tossed an inside pass to 
Sella. It might have been one 
of two other Frenchmen, but it 
was so appropriate that Sella 
should round off a season 
which has surely shown that 
he is the most complete centre 
in Europe, and possibly be- 
yond, though the menace of 
Gerber, the Springbok centre, 
should not be forgotten. Fast, 
strong, intelligent, abrasive, 
Sella has it all. 

This is one of the best 
scrummaging packs France 
has produced. They were 
aware of the importance En- 
gland attached to their scrum, 
and set out systematically to 
destroy it. The front row is not 
only strong, it is technically 
well-equipped, and so confi- 
dent that they went for a 
pushover try (against the side 
that scored two pushovers 
against Ireland) in the second 
half, and would have inflicted 
that indignity but for Rich- 
ards. who plunged in offside as 
France wheeled slightly only * 
to see Berbizier pop the ball 
out to Blanco, and save the 
award of a penalty try. 

Derek Bevan. who did well 
amid the hooters, jeers, and 
fire-crackers, did award a 
penally try against England, 
somewhat to the distress of 
Barnes. A swift kick-off away 
from the England forwards 
enabled Lafond to put Sella sa 
away, and all Barnes could do. hi 
10 metres from his own line, ef

speed and strength laid bare

season. The midfield was 
made to look inept, the kick- 
ing from stand-off half was 
poor. 


same opportunity been given 
him earlier from the heroic 
efforts of Colclough, who took 
over the captaincy after 
Melville's departure. 

Bui England's back row had 
too many tackles to make. 
Where England wanted to use 
Cough's strength to tie up the 
French back row, France left it 
all to their forwards. Rees and 
Winterbottom were pulled 
into the mauls, and Berbizier, 
in his armchair, completed his 
best championship season. He 
was somewhat disconcerted 
when Hill came on and 
promptly made his presence 


enough; and, finally, England 
lost the ball in midfield.

sprint down the touchline. It 
was immediately after 
Lapon's second penalty that 
Melville went off injured 
when chasing bis own kick- 
ahead and trying to tackle 
Blanco. 


The solitary satisfaction En- 
gland had was to score the first 
try France have conceded in 
the championship for two 
years. Andrew spiralled a long

Like the wild beauty of a Camargue stallion 


By David Miller 


Poor Rob Andrew. If the fates 
take any notice of ragbythey 


certainly frowned on England's 
stand-off half. After missing a 
penalty in the first minute. 
Andrew saw another three at- 
tempts go adrift before half time, 
-none from too difficult positions 
and the last from straight in 
'front If all had gone over rather 
than wide England could have 
let 12-10 at hare-time. 

While wishing no ill-will to- 
wards Andrew, everybody must 
be glad he missed. Any other 
result would have been unthink- 
able any plan for an England 
victory could only be designed 
around some system which 


would allow a no more than 
average team to put it across a 
genuinely exciting and imagi- 
native XV, which is never good 
for any sport France are now as 
exciting a prospect for the 
World Cnp as their football 
cousins were in the European 
championships. 


maybe. ^ 

There are times, irritable 
though arbitrarily judged sports 
can often be. when you wish that 
rngbyjbotball and cricket were 
awarded points for style, and 
were deducted points for being 
negative and expedient in the 
common fashion. 


You would gladly spend half a 
day travelling to see Sella. 
Blanco, Berbizier and die rest 
but England's pack are enough 
to make you stay in the pub. It is 
astonishing that in the 1980s 
anybody, even in rugby, can 
suppose that someone die shape 
of ChOcott can usefully perform 
at the highest level of any 
athletic, mobile sport. Darts, 


National anthems should be 
played before sporting events, as 
a form of exaltation, but never 
afterwards, encouraging as they 
do a maudlin, false patriotism. 
The problem is that anthems 
tend all too accurately to reflect 
the national character. 
England's is so much more 
Beaumont than Duckham. The 
two most exciting anthems for 


sport are undoubtedly those of 
Brazil and France. 

Brazil's did not do much for 
them in the mid-week football 
friendly against West Germany. 
Yet with the sun shming and 
Paris encfaantingly stepping into 
springtime, there was a tingle 
down the spine as the band at 
the Parc des Princes, in their 
toffee-tin hats, struck np their 
tune of national expectations. 
Would the biggest favourites in 
memory fulfil themselves? 

■ Ultimately, they did, but the 
pity about France's runaway and 
eventually stylish win was that 
they didn't have either the 
inclination or the confidence to 
open out until leading by 14 
points, at 17-3, a quarter of an 


hour into- the second half. Jac- 
qoes Fouroux, their coach, had 
dealy been too womednboot the 
old French faflmgs of ca sexiness 
and now. against an inept En- 
gland side, it seemed they took 
the opposition and the occasion 
a shade too seriously for too 
long. 


The action only really started 
as Sella ripped through on the 
right flank, and Barnes conceded 
the penalty try. Now, suddenly, 
Blanco, in immediate' response 
to a missed penalty by Barries, 
threw off afl reins. Rugby is 
about nothing If K is not first 
about running, and Blanco is full 
cry has the wOd beauty of an 
untamed Camargue stallion.

Whistler Mountain, British 
Columbia (Reuter) - Anton 
Steiner, of Austria, mastered a 
treacherous course on Saturday 
to win the final World Cup 
men's downhill of the season. 
But while it was a glorious day 
for the 27-year-old veteran, who 
flashed down the challenging 
course in 2min 9.78sec. it was a 
heart-breaking morning for Pe- 
ter Mueller, of Switzerland. 

Mueller, who. with a victory, 
could have tied with Peter 
Wimsberger. of Austria, for the 
season-long downhill title had a 
brilliant run going but fell when 
he lost his balance flying off a 
jump only 200 metres from the 
finish.

• MAESTRO (BBC2, 

10.10pm) continues its gentle 
series an sporting heroes 
with a look at thelanguid art of 
Cofin Cowdrey. He was an 
enigmatic cricketer, endowed 
with more natural talent than 
ten Geoff Boycotts put together, 
but became curiously bogged 
down by ordinary bowling. Still, 
he managed more than 7200 
runs in Test Matches and ranks 
among England's greatest 
post-war batsmen. In 
conversation with a less than 
probing Barry Davies, he is as 
diffident as he often seemed 
at the crease. Perhaps his rise 
was all too effortless. Being 
christened with the initials MCC 
was not a bad start and he 
was playing at Lord's when ha 

was 13 ana for England at 20. 
with public school {Tonbridge) 
and Brasenose in between.

Everton made to struggle in attempt to retain championship 

Sheedy flies to the rescue 




H ooding for the first division title: with five minutes left, Sheedy takes off to land Everton’s equalizer against Chelsea at Goodison Park yesterday 


By Clive White 


Everton ~ 
Chelsea ... 


...1 

...1 


Another gritty performance 
;y Everton yesterday suggest- 
'd that it will take an enor- 
nous effort by the opposition 
o wrest the trophy from the 
ihampions' grasp this season. 

\t times looking uncbaracter- 
sricaUv ragged, they trailed 
rhelsea until the 85th minute 
when by sheer willpower more 
ban anything they forced an 
jqualizer through Sheedy. 

More than preserving their 
mbealen run. which now 
tretches back 17 games, it 
;ept the threat posed by 
rhelsea. who have three 
-ames in band, to a safe 
listance of eight points and 


increased their lead over their 
neighbours. Liverpool in sec- 
ond place, to three points. 

Everton have found Chelsea 
to be the most awkward 
opponents they have faced 
since coming to power two 
seasons ago. They have failed 
to win any of their last five 
meetings with the Londoners 
and could not have com- 
plained had Chelsea won 
again here at Goodison Park. 
Chelsea, whose own recent 
form has been in stark con- 
trast to that of Everton, were 
not without some resolution 
themselves. Three home de- 
feats just before the recent 
cold spell seemed to put paid 
to their season but with Dixon 
and McLaughlin restored to 
full fitness, we can expect 
them to be h arrassing Everton 


all the way to the finishing 
post. 

Everton were able to wel- 
come back their central pillar, 
Mountfield, for his first game 
since suffering complications 
with a cartilage in mid-Sep- 
tember and in the circum- 
stances his performance was 
even more remarkable. Facing 
Dixon, there was no question 
of being allowed a gentle 
return, for the faint-hearted let 
alone those of faint limbs and 
given the tenacious spirit in 
which it was played it was 
surprising that no more than 
three players were booked. All 
were from Chelsea, Rougvie, 
Speedie and Spackman. 
Rougvie was allegedly struck 
by an object as he left the field 
at half-time but his manager 
observed that it would take 


something more substantial 
to have prevented his player 
reappearing for the second 
half. 

Despite the anger of the 
home crowd at the referee’s 
apparent leniency their own 
team were not without blame. 
Id each of the three previous 
meetings this season a player 
has been sent off and Van den 
Hauwe might have main- 
tained the record bad the 
referee seen his spiteful elbow 
into the face of Speedie in the 
fourth minute. 

Everton. without Reid, nev- 
er ran smoothly in midfield 
and at the back, without 
Ratdiffe, they were given 
moments of desperation. Ste- 
vens, the England full back, 
struggled with his game. 
Mountfield. and Van den 


Hauwe, playing together for 
the first time in the centre of 
the defence, also strove to find 
an understanding. 

Chelsea took advantage of 
such disquiet in the Everton 
side to go ahead in the twelfth 
minute. Van den Hauwe foiled 
to win a header decisively 
against Speedie and the ball 
broke to Stevens. But in his 
desperation to dear he hacked 
it against Dixon and it fell 
obligingly to Murphy. He 
struck it smartly past Southall. 

Chelsea succeeded in block- 
ing Everton at every turn and 
with whatever part of the 
anatomy was available. 
Niedzwiecki made several 
outstanding saves, including a 
memorable one from a shot by 


Bracewell which took a nasty 
deflection. With the crowd 
vociferously behind them, 
Everton gradually established 
some sort of . rhythm and 
eventually equalized with five 
minutes re maining. Heath, 
who had come on ns substi- 
tute, made space for a short 
cross which Lineker met, hut

Sheedy followed up to bead

Skill of Detari has 
Brazil floundering 


From Rob Hughes 
Budapest 

Hungary 3 

Brazil. ...... — — 0 

This was not a match to live 
up to the history of these two 
great nations. The Danube 
was in sombre, misty mood 
and the chill that went straight 
through what amounted to a 
shadow Brazilian side was 
sufficient to give Hungary the 
emphatic victory which Franz 
Beckenbauer had warned Bra- 
zil might be awaiting them 
here. 

Their goals were all the 
products of the flair of Lajos 
Detail, the 22-year old from 
Honved who is' rapidly rising 
as a world-class talent in a re- 
emerging Hungarian team. He 
scored the first goal, created 
the other two, and was a class 
above all that was happening. 

Yet it had of course been 
Brazil who enticed us to the 
Nep stadium. They had made 
five changes from the side 
which lost in Frankfurt; Socra- 
tes and Falcao were both 
injured and the dear message 
is that, there are no substitutes 
either for their ageing talents 
or for the quartet of Brazilians 
currently in the Italian league, 
although they did have in 
Silas, just 20, a player with the 
touch and vision which mark 
him out as a player for the 
future. Brazil must hope that 
their other doctors, the ortho- 
paedics, can work on the older 
players in the two months to 
Mexico. 

In contrast all goes well for 
Hungary, who took the lead in 
the fifth minute when 
Kiprich’s chip was headed in 
at the far post by Detari. The 
goalkeeper, Leao, as ever, 
failed to come off his line. 

Brazil were going nowhere. 
Their efforts were summed up 
by Renalo, with the instincts 


to beat his man time after time 
but without the intelligence to 
direct his crosses when and 
where his team needed them. 

Detari. however, knew ex- 
actly how. On the hour he 
superbly dragged the ball away 
from Oscar and in an instant 
had put the substitute. 
Kovacs, into a clear scoring 
position. Leao made the reflex 
stop, but could not hold the 
ball and Kovacs completed his 
goaL Finally, in the 73rd 
minute Detari once again 
pushed the ball through for 
Esterhazy to shoot the goal 
that concluded the scoring.

Hateley scores 
two for Milan 

Milan — Two goals in five 
minutes either side of half-time 
yesterday by Mark Hateley 
maintained Milan’s attempt to 
qualify for European competi- 
tion next season and provided 
some welcome news for Bobby 
Robson amidst all the injuries 
afflicting other members of his 
squad (David Miller writes). 

Hateley scored in the last 
minute of the first half with a 
superbly taken left-foot shot, 
and four minutes into the 
second half headed down into 
the comer of the net from a 

cross by Evaoi, to give his side a 

2-0 home win over Udinese. 
Hateley is now Milan’s leading 
scorer with seven goals, follow- 
ing his absence for several 
weeks with tonsilitis. Wilkins, 
regularly supporting the attack, 
had three shots saved, and 
showed form which suggested 
that he. too. should be an 
integral part of England’s plans 
in Mexico.

CYCLING 

Kelly near 
pinacle of 
greatness 

From John Wilcockson 
San Remo 

After his emphatic victory in 
the 77th Mflan-San Remo 
race on Saturday - his sixth 
classic win in 30 months - 
Sean Kelly is being compared 
to Eddy Merckx, the Belgian 
cyclist who dominated the 
sport in the 1970s. 

KeOy’s ability was best de- 
scribed after the race by the 
man who finished a brilliant 
second, Greg LeMond, of the 
United States. He saldr*Kelly 
is the best When he is on form 
he controls everything. Yon 
can’t drop him up a hill 
because he is as good as the 
best climbers. And yon can't 
heat him in the finish because 
he is as fast as the best 
sprinter.” 

Kelly waited until every 
other rider was at breaking 
point, and then went into 
overdrive. He dashed across 
the gap to tfae leaders as if it 
did not exist, and then forced 
LeMond and Becria to follow 
him to the top of the three-mile 
climb.

Dew raises fresh 
hope for England 


The controversy over the 
petition to remove the En- 
gland manager, Jake Downey, 
overshadowed events at the 
All-England Championships 
sponsored by Yonex at Wem- 
bley yesterday. 

It was the first time in 20 
yean that no English players 
participated on finals day; 
meanwhile, Morton Frost, the 
Dane now based in London, 
regained the men’s singles title 
by outplaying the Malaysian 
number one, Misbun Sidek, 
15-2. 15-8. 

England's most successful 
player was Martin Dew, the 
European doubles champion 
whose omission from the 
Thomas Cup squad prompted 
the petition. Although Dew 
was comprehensively beaten 
twice on Saturday, he was the 
only English player to reach 
two semi-finals and was clear- 
ly fired up by the controversy. 

Most of the others were not 
That helped the South Kore- 
ans to become the first nation 
to win four All England titles 
since the Indonesians in 1979. 
It also lured experienced com- 
mentators to say that English 


medals in the Thomas and 
Uber Cups are now impossi- 
ble. They may, however, just 
be wrong. 

That is because England's 
selectors filled yesterday’s 
vacuum with an announce- 
ment — a minor thunderbolt — 
announcing that the squad 
will now travel three days later 
than planned, allegedly be- 
cause neither team play on the 
opening day and both have 
easy draws. This means that 
the sticking point for Dew and 
Nora Perry, the other player 
who refused to travel with the 
squad on the original date, 
may have been removed.

Langer in 
contact 
with a 66 

From John Ballantme 

. Orlando, Florida 

Bernhard Langer, the met- 
tlesome Masters champion, 
scored a second round 66 to. 
move menacingly up on the 
leaders in Arnold Palmer’s 
rain-delayed Bay Hill Classic 
here yesterday. The event was 
turned into a free-for-all as 79 
players at 75 or better 
qualified for the final .36 
boiesof an event reduced 
through the washouts of Fri- 
day and Saturday to 54 holes. 

It was the first time in a 
PGA tournament of modem 
times that a cut had been 
made after only one round. All 
five leading Europeans, Sandy 
Lyle (71), Langer (72), Ken 
Brown and Philip Parkin (73), 
and Nick Faldo (74) were 
therefore given the opportuni- 
ty to share in the prize-money 
of $500,000 (about £342,0001 
not to mention having a crack 
in the afternoon's third and 
last round of * winning 
$500,000 and seeing another 
£500,000 go to charity by 
holing in one at the 223yard 
17th. 

Langer, who is having, a 
tremendous season, dropped a 
stroke at his first hole but went 
out in 33 by holing from 25 
feet and 40 feet. The Goman 
attacked relentlessly on his 
second nine. Heholed from 15 
feet at the fifth and pitched to 
18feet and holed again at die 
long sixth. 

At the eighth. . Langer 
pitched to three feet and a par 
at the ninth gave him 66, 
challenging the American 
leaders, Tom Kite, Dan 
Foreman. Ray Floyd and Dan

Gatting is likely 
to miss Test 

From JoliB Woodcock, Cricket Correspondent 
- Bridgetown, Barbados 

Englan d were struggling to play Botham was beaten and 
keep t their p™ . together nearly bowled by his first ball, 
agianst.Baibadoshese yestcr- from Garner, and even by 
day; burdened by the- news lunch, when he had made 25, 
that jG stting has exchanged a he was still nowhere near to 
broken right-thumb for his finding his touch. But the need 
recently broken nose ~and is " 1 

unlikely to play in the third 
Test match which starts on 
Friday. He is definitely out of 
the oneway international two 
days before that. Half an hour 
after lunch, England, in their 
second innings, were 187 for 
three, Botham having made 
an anxious 33 not out 

Other than his nose, Gatting 
had broken nothing until 
Greene Jut him with the ball 
which dismissed him on Fri- 
day afternoon. Although a 
dean:, break -across the top 
joint, it is more painful than 
his nose was and it will be a 
few days before he can hold a 
bat. He was playing well when 
it happened and oniheway, it 
seemed, to the best possible 
rehabilitation after his return 
from England. 

To play Gatting in the Test 
match, on what is almost 
certain to be a bouncy Bridge- 
town; pitch, wiD probably be 
seen as an,; unjustifiable risk. 

This being so, th& frum, or 
lack of it, and the fitness of all 
the other batsmen assume 
greater relevance than ever. 

More of the party than not 
were having treatment for 
something or other yesterday, 
ranging bom Gatling’s thumb 
to Ellison’s tummy. 

Gooch is sure to be in 
Wednesday’s side, though he 
is still in some discomfort 
from the knock be took in the 
ribs from Patterson at Trini- 
dad. 

Although he will not bowl 
again in this match, Botham’s 
ankle is on the mend. “Fred” 
foe boiriing machine, has hit 
Lamb op the arm; but mostly, 
foe other injuries and ailments 
.are ofa minor nature. . 


for patience dawned on him, 
and when Garner withdrew 
Botham dispensed! with his 
helmet and became slightly 
more himself. His helmet and 
visor have become on this 
tour a symbol of his foiling 
confidence. 

Willey, meanwhile, played 
his captain’s part, which he 
has taken on for this match 
since Gatting was injured and 
Gower decided not to field on 
Saturday. 

England looked, in fact, a 
rather ’ tighter ship under 
Willey on Saturday than they 
had under Gower on Friday 
evening. He could have been 
out in the first over yesterday, 
when be edged Garner’s fifth 
ball between wicketkeeper and 
first slip for four. But there 
was no danger of his throwing 
his wicket away and he pro- 
duced three or four of his best 
cover drives. By lunch he had 
made 41 out ofl59 for three.
