Glenholmes hunt 
on new warrants 

By Stewart Tendler and Rich- 
ard Ford 

Nine fresh warrants for the 
arrest of Evelyn Glenholmes 
arrived or were on their way to 
Dublin from London yester- 
day at foe beginning of foe 
third big police hunt for the 
woman since Scotland Yard 
named her as a Provisional 
IRA fugitive to a London 
court m 1984. 

In foe meantime talks have 
begun in London between foe 
Director of Public 
Prosecutions’ office and Scot- 
land Yard to prevent another 
legal debacle such as foe one 
that freed Miss Glenholmes 
from an Irish court at foe 

One possibility being ad- 
vanced by foe police, still 
angry at foe weekend's events, 
would be special legal teams 
that would handle foe prepa- 
rations for extraditing an IRA 
suspect and be oo hand during 
the Irish court case. 

Garda Siochana officers be- 
gan foe task of trying to find 
Miss Glenholmes, wanted as a 
suspect in London bombings 
involving three murders, be- 
fore she could be smuggled out 
of foe Republic to a country 
where extradition would be 
even more difficult 

Sir Thomas Hetheringion . 
foe DPP, and his staff refused 
to comment on the case, but 
an angry detective said that 
although no DPP official was 
in court in Dublin for two 
days of the extradition bearing 
an English barrister and a 
solicitor were present advising 
foe defence. 

It is understood that no 
members of the DPP's staff 
are to face dismissal or inter- 
nal discipline for the legal 
blunder which gave foe Irish- 
woman her freedom. An Irish 
judge ruled on Saturday that 
nine English warrants were 
invalid because foe informa- 
tion on which they were issued 
was not sworn before foe 
London magistrate on foe day 

he issued foe documents to a 
DPP official. 

The warrants were issued in 
November 1984 after a first 
set were described as defective 
by foe Irish authorities, and 
foe police have complained 
that they were left unchecked 
for 18 months. 

One new warrant was issued 
on Saturday at Bow Street as 
the Irish court freed Miss 
Glenholmes. News of its issue 
given to foe Irish police by 
telephone did not satisfy foe 
judge. A DPP official, rushed 
to Dublin, 

The warrant arrived in 
Dublin yesterday morning 
and a senior Yard source said 
foe Irish police did not need it 
physically to make an arrest so 
foe delay had no effect. • 

Eight warrants were issued 
yesterday during foe day from 
Bow Street and a Berkshire 
court which covers three of foe 
offences. The first warrant sent 
from London is foe one that 
foe British believe would cir- 
cumvent Irish protection for 
offences claimed to be politi- 
cal. It details the murder of a 
civilian woman , Mrs Nora 
Field, killed by the Chelsea 
barracks nail bomb in 1981.

share deal 

By Philip Webster 
Political Reporter 

The Prime Minister last 
night repudiated reports that 
she had dealt in shares in ha- 
own name while Prime Min- 

In a statement from Down- 
ing Street replying to weekend 
reports that she had improper- 
ly dealt in shares Mrs Thatch- 
er said that last year she had 
made arrangements for all her 
holdings of shares to be trans- 
ferred to a firm of mvestment 
managers with foil powers to 
buy and sell shares without 
reference to her. 

She said that in 1971 (when 
she was Secretary of State for 
Education and Science) she 
had brought a small share- 
holding in the Australian com- 
pany, Broken Hill Prop- 
rietary, which was the firm 

She said it was registered In 
her own name. But between 
1971 and 1986 the holding was 
increased to its current level 
through a series of rights 
issues, dividend issues and 
share splits, ln other words 
(he holding had been in- 
creased to its current level 
through a natural accnutl 
rather than dealing. 

She said that from when she 
transferred her affairs to the 
investment firm 130 3 Broken 
Hill shares were transferred to 
foe nommees of the investment 
managers and foe remaining 
24 shares were in the course of 
being transferred to them. The 
statement added: “All foe 
share are still held on her 
behalf; none have been sold.” 
The statement may still 
leave Mrs Thatcher open to 
attack from foe opposition 
because of the admission that 
she bought the shareholding 
when she was a cabinet

World oil prices are likely to 
resume their downward spiral 
after foe crisis meeting of foe

Prices could tumble to-

of foe week, according to oil

The impact of the meeting 
was felt on foe Stock Exchange 
where share prices fell back 
sharply on dashed hopes of 
another early cut in base rates. 
The Financial Times 30-share 
index fell by 17.6 points to 
1394.6. The wider FTSE 100- 
shart index dropped by 24.4 
points to 1663.9.

The Lord Chancellor has 
agreed to pay negotiations 
with- the Bar. He will ask the 
Cabinet to approve a timetable 
for foe talks which look set to 
end the High Court dispute 
over criminal legal aid fees. 

Lord Haflsham of St

yesterday, comes after clear 
hints at the end of last week

ad journed the proceedings ear-

Lord Hailsham and that some 
“hard thinking” was needed. 

Yesterday counsel for the 
Lord Chancellor, Mr Nicholas 
Phillips, QC said talks had 
now taken place and a timeta- 
ble for negotiation had been 
put forward. 

“The Lord Chancellor 
would like to agree, but will

breach of his statutory duty to 
provide “lair and reasonable”

In foe High Court proceed-

Rules for disciplining 
doctors assailed as 
costly and unworkable 

By Nicholas Timmins, Social Sendees Correspondent 


- Health ministers are being 
.pressed to change the proce- 
dure for disciplining doctors 
■in the wake of the Wendy 
•Savage inquiry. Health au- 
thorities are warning the De- 
partment of Health and Social 
Security that the procedure 
has become “unworkable'’. 

; r is unfair both to health 
authorities, who face huge 
delays -and costs in trying to 
•get rid ‘of incompetent doc- 
tors, and to doctors them- 
selves. Those who are cleared 
by the end of the procedure 
may have been suspended for 
four years or more at a cost to 
the National Health Service of 

Even when a doctor is 
cleared, health authorities say, 
so much time may have 
elapsed and so much bad 
blood may have been generat- 
ed- that it is difficult or 
impossible for the doctor to go 
back to work. 

• A confidential memoran- 
dum from Trent Regional 
•Health Authority to the chair- 
men, managers and regional 
medical officers of the other 
13 NHS regions, says the 
procedure is “out of date, 
-complicated, slow and very 
costly". It has become “pro- 
gressively unworkable". 

The procedure, which is 
used to deal with cases of 

MPs press 
•for assault 

serious professional miscon- 
duct or incompetence, is 
“cumbersome and 

bureaucratic" and “positively 
detrimental" for both health 
authorities and doctors. 

District medical officers in 
other regions are now saying 
privately they will not u* the 
procedure because of the time 
it takes, the cost and the 
uncertainty about the 

The Trent memorandum 
says that the need to take die 
huge costs into account inhib- 
its health authorities from 
taking disciplinary action over 
professional incompetence or 
misconduct. But the “interests 
of the service and the care 
given to patients" require that 
should not be so. 

Concern has been brought 
to a head by the publicity over 
the case of Mrs Wendy Sav- 
age, the consultant obstetri- 
cian suspended from the 
London Hospital for almost a 
year, where the cost to the 
health authority is estimated 
to be approaching £100.000, 
with Mrs Savage's costs in the 
same region.

Political Staff 

. Manchester city councillors 
and MPs are seeking an urgent 
-meeting with the Home Secre- 
tary to press for a speedy 
conclusion to an inquiry into 
fcfcrims by two students that 
they; have been intimidated 
and assaulted by plainclothes 
police officers. 

One of the students, Steven 
Shaw, aged 24, spoke yester- 
day of nightmares in which he 
sees the faces of two officers he 
says beat him up in a Man- 
chester street last February. 

Harassment alleged by the 
two includes threats, surveil- 
lance, assault and buiglary 
spread over a year. Both were 
involved in the demonstration 

against the visit of Mr Leon | 
Brittan, then Home Secretary, '

from Avon and Somerset 
police, is investigating 
In October 19S5 an inde- 
pendent inquiry panel set up 
by the council concluded there 
had been a misuse of a police 
riot squad. 

The second student in- 
volved, Sarah Hollis, aged 22, 
has recently fallen silent, re- 
portedly after an offer made 
over the telephone. 

John Mikkleson, the Hell's 
Angel who died in police 
custody after inhaling hisj 
vomit, had a large number of 
injuries to different parts of 
his body, a pathologist said at 
an inquest into his death 

Dr Stephen Cordner told 
the inquest in Hammersmith 
that he had cuts and bruises to' 
his face, neck, chest, pelvis, 
arms, back and buttocks. 

Mr Mikkleson, aged 34, of 
Salters Road. North Kensing- 
ton, west London, died after 
he was arrested by . police 
questioning several men 
about possession of a car m 
Feltham, west London. 

Dr Cordner said that Mr 
Mikkleson’s death was “an 
extremely complicated case . 
He was intoxicated with alco- 
hol and had been involved in 
a fight 

Dr Cordner said the injuries 
themselves did not indicate 
excessive force.

one time, employing two so- 
lienors virtually fill! time. 

In one case a consultant has 

been suspended for four years f 

at a cost of more than 
£200,000 as the disciplinary 
procedure and appeals have 
been gone through. $ 

In another, involving fraud, 7 
costs are running at more than 
£100.000 with the formal in- ; 
quiry yet to take place two 
years after the doctor was .. 

suspended. H 

If the inquiry goes ahead £ 
“the resource and time impli- 
cations will be hard to accept". 

In North East Thames, a 
consultant paediatrician has 
been suspended for three 
years, with threat of an inquiry 
still to be held, and a 
haematologist has been sus- 
pended for over more than 
four years. 

Trent says the burden of 
proof the procedure demands 
is “very high" and_ suffers 
from “excessive legalism" yet 
witnesses cannot be com- 
pelled to attend and the whole 
procedure, set up in 1961, is ^ 
“out of step with modem 
employment law" . 

A more simple and effective 
procedure is needed, the Trent 
document says, in the inter- 
ests of doctors, patients and 
health authorities. 

printers | 

By Ronald Fanx 
Printers on the Daily 
Record and Sunday Mas in i 
Glasgow agreed yesterday to i 
return to work according to the < 
de«l reached in London be- 1 
tween Sogat *82 and the i 
management of Mirror Group 1 
Newspapers in London, bat i 
refused to cross picket lines ; 
manned by the 220 dismissed < 
members of the National 

Union of Journalists of the two 


The journalists were dis- 
missed by Mr Robert Maxwell 
the publisher, after striking in 
protest at rednndancy plans. 
Neither newspaper has ap- 
peared for two weeks. 

The decision by the printers 
came last night as a relief to 
the journalists who feared that 
, a return to work by Sogat 
members would isolate them 
and allow Mr Maxwell to 
prod nee the DaSy R ecor d, 
which has the biggest newspa- 
per circulation in Scotland, by 
facsimile from Manchester. 
Earlier the contempt action 
. against Sogat *82 in the High 
Court in London was ad- 
journed to await the decision of 
the meeting in Glasgow of 700 
printworkers. Mr Christopher 
Parr, QC, for Mirror Group 
Newspapers, told Mr Justice 
Potter that the key aspect of 
the deal reached over the 
••weekend between the group 
and the muons was the decla- 
ration by Sogat *82 that it was 
no part of its function to 
influence the editorial conduct 
of the paper. 

In return Mr Maxwell had 
withdrawn dismissal notices 
and the onion had agreed^ to 

bear the legal costs of bringing 

the contempt action. 

I .ast night management was 
considering its next move. 

Mr Maxwell has invit ed any 
journalists who wish to return 
to work to apply for their jobs 
but the NUJ has rejected the

Heidi Koseda inquiry 

Child’s death leads to 
improvements in 
NSPCC’s care services 

The case ofa three-year-old 
child who was starved to death 
m tier council home has 
prompted a big overhaul of 
child care services, the Na- 
tional Society for the Preven- 
tion of Cruelty to Children 
said yesterday. 

Dr Alan Gilmour, the direc- 
tor of the NSPCC, outlined 
the impr ovements at a press 
conference after an indepen- 
dent inquiry sharply criticized 
the society and held it partly 
responsible for the child’s 

responsible for the child’s 

The inquiry was ordered 
after police discovered the 
emaciated body of Heidi 
Koseda in a squalid flat in 
Hillingdon, west London, on 
January 23 last year. She had 
been dead for several weeks, 
and there was evidence that 
she had eaten tissue paper to 
. try to survives 

Nicholas- Price, aged 26, 
who had been living with 
Heidi’s mother, was later 
jailed for life for her murder. 
Her mother. Mis Rosemary 
Koseda,.aged 28, was commit- ‘ 
ted to a mental hospital after 
pleading guilty to manslaugh- 
ter on the grounds of dimin- 
ished responsibility.

Loan sharks warning 
on benefit claimants 

By Robin Young 

Government proposals to 
offer interest-free loans to 
families living on supplemen- 
tary benefit could drive them 
into the hands of loan sharks, 
the Family Policy Studies 
Centre said yesterday. 

The introduction of loans is 
one aspect of the 
Government's proposals for a 
social fund contained in the 
Social Security Bill The loans 
would replace many of the 
grants received by supplemen- 
tary benefit claimants. 

The centre's report says that 
half the supplementary benefit 
families with children are in 
debt and unlikely to be able to 
service an additional loan. 

Existing benefit levels are so 
low that many families with 
children cannot afford clothes. 

Replacing grants with loans 
would mean that (ow-income 
families had to pay for more 
out of their basic benefit, and 
the increase in benefit by 
£1.40 a week would not com- 
pensate for the £3 a week in 
benefits now received on aver- 
age in grants. 

The report says that one in 
three families with children on 
supplementary benefit re- 
ceives two thirds of the exist- 
ing single payment grants. If 
those were converted into . 
interest-free loans, the social 
fond would be able to enforce 
repayments by direct deduc- 
tion from social security bene-

Research into eariy-stage

A law banning such research

about half of the annual

three months of pregnancy 
were due to chromosomal 
abnormalities in the embryo,

Glenholmes case 


y and A flood 

Lessons to be learnt from 
extradition failure 


icadons are this (Monday) 
le for the 

It was deeply disappointing that 
it had not so far proved possible 
to obtain the extradition from 
the Republic of Ireland of Miss 
Evelyn Glenholmes to face jus- 
tice in a British court, Mr 
Douglas Hard, the Home Sec- 
retary. said in a statement to the 
Commons. It was a regrettable 
failure: and he told MPa it was 
essential that they all feaml the 
right lessons for the future from 
this failure. 

The case, in which a Dublin 
court ruled that warrants for the 
extradition of Miss Glenholmes 
were invalid because of a legal 
technicality, was described by 
Mr Gerald Kaufman, chin 
Opposffon spokesman on home 
affairs, as “a batch ed-up job” 
and he went on to call for a full 
inquiry. During (he exchanges. 
Mr Hurd said there was no* 
criticism to offer of the Irish 
Government or its agencies, 
including the Garda. 

Mr Hard said: Nine endorsed 
warrants for the return of Miss 
Glenholmes were first issued on 
October 31. 1984 and submined 
to the Irish authorities for 
endorsement in accordance with 
the UK-lrish extradition 

The offences covered by the 
warrants related to various ter- 
rorist offences committed be- 
tween 1981 and 1982. including 
murder, attempted murder, fire- 
arms and explosives offences. 

The original warrants were 
returned by the Irish authorities, 
who asked for some technical 
changes to be made to their 
wording. Fresh warrants were 
accordingly submitted on 
November 6. 1984, but by that 
time details of the extradition 
request had been disclosed in 
the press and Miss Glenholmes 
disappeared from view. 

She was later arrest in Dublin 
on March 12. 1986. and the 
hearing of the extradition re- 
quest opened in the District 
Court of Dublin last Wednesday 
on the basis of the warrants 
issued in November. 1984. 

. Throughout last week's court 
hearing there was close coopera- 
tion between the Irish prosecut- 
ing authorities and officers from 
the Metropolitan Police and the 
office of the Director of Public 

On Saturday morning, having 
heard submissions from defence 
counsel that the extradition 
warrants were defective, the 
court discharged Miss 

1 understand that the prin- 
cipal consideration which 
underlay the court's decision 
was that, whereas the standard 
wording printed on the warrants 
referred to information pn oath 
as having been laid on the day 
the warrants were issued, which 
was November 6. 1984," the 
court considered that the Tele- 
van* information was that laid 
when the original warrants had 
been issued on October 31, 

I understand that the mag- 
istrate in London treated the 
further application on Novem- 
ber 6 as having been made 
under oath adopting the 
information already laid but not 
reswom. So the information 
required for both sets of war- 
rants was identical, but was not 
sworn again on November 6. 
which could have avoided the 
difficulty which later arose. 

Even before Miss Glenholmes 
was released, the United King- 
dom authorities had made 
arrangements for the issue of a 
fresh warrant covering one of 
the charges of murder. On the 
basis of this fresh warrant, the 
Garda obtained a new pro- 
visional warrant for the arrest of 
Glenholmes. Once she was 
re-arrested, she was brought 
back to the District Court. 

I understand that Miss 
Glenholmes was then released, 
this time on the grounds that the 
court was not satisfied in spite of 
a telephone call from New 
Scotland Yard to the Garda that 
there was evidence that a fresh 
warrant had been issued in 
London that morning or that 
Miss Glenholmes had in effect 
been at liberty between her 
earlier release and her re-arrest. 

Following the second release 
of Miss Glenholmes. the fresh 
■warrant was sent to Dublin this 
'(Monday) morning. Earlier to- 
day additional warrants were 
sent covering the eight remain- 
ing charges. In addition. 

being made 
i«ne of three further warrants in 
Oxfordshire and these will be 
forwarded to the authorities in 
Dublin as soon as they have 
been granted. 

The Attorney General (Sir 
Michael Havers) and I have 
looked carefully at the informa- 
tion so far available to us. On 
the basis of that information it is 
dear that the extradition 
application failed because of a 
technical objection taken by the 
Dublin court. 

The Attorney General and I 
regret that this technical 
objection was not foreseen in 
time a nd fresh warrants ob- 
tained. We are considering ur- 
gently the need for a review of 
procedures and the handling of 
this sort of case. The Attorney 
General has instructed the 
Directors of Public Prosecutions 
for England and Wales, and for 
Northern Ireland, to ensure 
personally that all outstanding 
warrants in respect of terrorist 
offences are checked at once for 
accuracy and sufficiency. 

Under the auspices of the 
Inter-Governmental Con- 
ference work has already begun 
on a range of kgal matters 
relating to extradition and the 
lessons of the past few days will 
be studied in that context. 

For the sake of completeness, 
our inquiries have shown that in 
giving evidence to the court in 
Dublin an officer from the 
Metropolitan Police made an 
error in referring to the dates on 
which the warrants were issued. 

I understand that he sought to 
correct this error, but that an 
opportunity for him to do so 
was not forthcoming. This does 
not however, appear to have 
influenced the court in its- 
decision to release Miss 

Mr Gerald chief 

Opposition spokesman on 
home affairs, said that through- 
out this lamentable episode the 
Irish authorities had behaved 
with complete propriety and the 
Irish Government had fulfilled 
all its obligations. 

It had been said that Miss 
Glenholmes was Scotland 
Yard's most wanted terrorist 
suspect In the light of the fact 
that the extradition cases 
involving Brendan Bums had 
failed through evidence relevant 
to warrants and that one of two 
prior sets prepared for Miss 
Glenholmes was faulty, why 


Kaaftnan: Fullest inquiry 
most be held 

were warrants allowed to 
forward without being meticu- 
lously checked? Why during the 
18 months were they not re- 
checked for accuracy? 

Mr Hurd had said they were 
originally checked, found want- 
ing and corrected. But he had 
not pointed out that new ones, 
allegedly corrected, were also 
faulty*. Why were they not 
cleared in advance for accuracy 
and technical probity with the 
Irish legal authorities? 

Who was in charge of this 
process in the Director of Public 
Prosecution's office? (Labour 

Did Mr Hurd know this had 

been dealt with a junior level? 
Was it true that other warrants 

on other matters relevant to 
Ireland were also found to be 
defective? Was Mr Hurd sure 
that the new warrants in respect 
of Miss Glenholmes were in 
order? (Labour laughter). 

The Irish Minister of Justice. 
Mr Dukes, bad said on Sunday 
that after the court adjourned in 
Dublin on Friday, further 
information and clarification 
had been sought from British 
authorities at that stage, but 
none had been forthcoming. 
What was the explanation for 
that serious lapse? 

Why did an official from the 
Director of Public Prosecutions' 

office go to Dublin? What was 

the purpose of the telephone call 

referred to by the Home Sec- 
retary to Dublin from the 
Metropolitan Police? Whai 
would have been the response of 
a British court to such a call on a 
serious extradition case? 

Taking into account the im- 
portant and sensitive issues at 
stake, why did the Director of 
Public Prosecutions not ensure 
that either he or a high official 
supervised all stages of such 

Why did the Attorney Gen- 
eral (hir Michael Havers) not

moved from the offices they 
hold. (Renewed Labour cheers). 

This disquieting episode cre- 
ated serious difficulties for the 
Irish authorities in their 
determination to cooperate over 
the delicate issue of extradition. 
The scenes on television gave 
the Provisional IRA a great 
propaganda triumph. 

Slackness, incompetence and 
complacency brought about this 
discreditable botch-up. Ab- 
solute assurances were needed 
that steps would now betaken to 
ensure nothing like this could 
ever happen again. (Labour 

Mr Hard: We have no criticism 
of the co-operation we received 
in this matter from the Irish 
authorities. The difficulty on 
which this case foundered on 
Saturday was a technical 

It was concerned with 
whether when the second and 
revised warrant was sotKbL The 
identical information which was 
laid when invoking the first 
warrant needed to be laid all 
over again under oath when 
seeking the revised warrant on 
the identical information from 
the same magistrate. 

Whatever view one takes of h, 
that is a technical point A great 
deal of trouble would have been 
avoided if that point had been 
foreseen and acred upon in the 
autumn of 1984. 

The second set of warrants — 
the ones which were held to be 
defective on Saturday — were 
shown to and given to the Irish 
authorities and no objection or 
criticism was raised on them, 
though it would not have been 
reasonable to expect the Irish 
authorities to have spotted the 
particular point on which the 
court in Dublin found the 
warrants to be defective on 

1 am advised that it is 
perfectly normal in these 
circumstances for news of the 
issue of a fresh warrant to be 
conveyed either way by a tele- 
phone conversation between the 
police forces concerned. This 
has happened before. Jt is 
nonnaL It happened on this 
occasion, though it was not 
accepted by the court for the 
reasons I have given. 

I agree that it is dearly 
essential that we find ways, 
through the Anglo-Irish con- 
ference and other ways, for 
ensuring that these difficulties 
do not recur. 

Mr Ian Gow (Eastbourne, C): Is 
there not a high duty resting on 
the DPP in all cases of extra- 
dition warrants to ensure that 
those warrants are validly , and 
properly prepared? Is that duty 
not even greater when we are 
dealing with a matter of the 
gravest importance like terror- 
ism on a massive scale of which 
the person concerned is suspect? 

Is he able to assure the House 
that the warrants that were 
taken to Dublin this morning 
have been seen and approved by 
the appropriate legal authorities 
in Dublin and that be has 
received an assurance that the 
new warrants sent over today 
are in order? 

Mr Hard: ! agree with the first 
part of his point, ti is our 
responsibility to make sure that 
warrants of this kind are in a 
form which arms them against 
all such difficulties and criti- 
cism. whether substantial or of a 
technical kind. 

The new warrants and other 
warrants also mentioned which 
are being sent to Dublin today 
are identical with those pre- 
viously sent, with the crucial 

exception that the information 
concerned has been retaid be- 
fore the magistrate concerned. 
Mr Enoch Powell (South Down, 
OUPk Has it occurred to the 
Government that the incom- 
petence of those acting on its 
behalf in the matter of extra- 
dition might be exceeded by the 
incompetence of those who 
negotiated the Anglo-Irish 
agreement and advised the Gov- 
ernment to enter into it?

vance to the matter we are 

Sir John Biggs-DrrfMa (Epping 
Forest, C): ti it not the case that 
the commendable and excep- 
tional exertions of the Garda 
have no connection with that 
agreement either? 

Mr Hard: We have no criticism 
of the Irish Government or its 
agencies, mdiwting the Garda, 
in this respect. 

The relevance of the agree- 
ment i$ that under one of its 
articles there are discussions 
going on to review these dif- 
ferent procedures. The lessons 
of this event Trill be relevant to 
those discussions. 

Mr Meriyn Rees (Leeds, South 
and Money. Lab): The purpose 
of statements in this House is so 
that we can question the min- 
ister responsible. The Home 
Secretary has no responsibility 
for extradition warrants and he 
has no responsibility for the 
DPP. We should be questioning 
the Attorney General- We win 
have to take the matter further. 
Mr Hard: This is a matter which 
concerned both the police and 
the prosecuting authorities in 
this co un try and therefore it was 
sensible tor me to make a 
statement today. He will have 
ample time for asking questions

Sir Eldon Griffiths (Bury St

contrast between the detailed 
and careful and often dangerous 
work of the police service of the 
Irish Republic and the Metro-

undertaking to obtain the 
information, sometimes at the 
risk of their lives, and the 
slipshod and careless way in

the DPP’s office.

sible in the DPP's office for 
wtahKdmw the sufficiency and 
accuracy of the warrants? What 
chance does he bold oat of 
bringing this most wanted per- 
son to justice in the near future? 

Mr Hardb It would not be 
right for me to give the names of i 
officials in that way. The struc-

to get carried away by scare

His remark came during ex- 
changes on bow regularly the 
Welsh Office monitors radio- 
active discharges from nuclear 
installations into the environ- 
ment in the Principality, after 
Sir Raymond Gower (Vale of 
Glamorgan. C). said toe nuclear

able history of safety — better 
even than that of coaL 
Sir Raymond's remarks came 
after Mr Roy Hagbes, an Oppo- 

sition spokesman on Welsh 
affairs, had said the general 
public were increasingly con- 
cerned about the hazards posed 
by nuclear installations- 

There is a recognition in the 
Sevcmside area (he said) that it 
needs another nuclear power 
station there like a hole in the 
head. (Conservative protests} If 
the Central Electricity Generat- 
ing Board attempt to walk in the 
face of that feeling, it will meet 
the strongest possible resistance. 
Mr RotHnson said he strongly 
refuted what Mr Hughes bad 
said. Aquatic monitoring of the 
Severn took place regularly and 
sites in Gwent were included.

assured that it was done effec- 
tively and continuously.

Parents who need training for power 

Whatever hopes the Gov- 
ernment and others may have 
of parent governors, academic 
researchers have no illusions. 
Their work shows parent gov- 
ernors to be unassertive and 
circumscribed in their powers. 

A three-year study at Brunei 
University found some head 
teachers who regarded gover- 
nors as a necessary evil. They 
looked on them as a group to 
whom it was difficult to be 
accountable, but who could 
perhaps be taught what was 
importanL On the whole, the 
professionals, the teachers, de- 
cided what subjects the gover- 
nors discussed. 

Mr Mike Golby at Exeter 
University found that, with 
some exceptions, parent gov- 
ernors were a well-meaning 
but mute group, patronized by 
the experienced governors. He 
recommended that parent 
governors receive training in 
committee work and in under- 
standing how they might be 
able to exert influence. 

The new Education Bill says 
that all governors should re-, 
ceive the training, free of 
charge, which the local educa- 
tion authority considers nec-

federation of Parent Teacher 
Associations, said that this 
was top priority. Without 
training, parent governors 
could not question what was 
going on in school.

retary of the National Assoria- 
tion of Governors and 
Managers, runs training 
courses for new parent 

“It is difficult for parent 
governors where they are new- 
ly elecied.’’ she said. “People 
arc unsure and no one wants 
to tread on anyone's toes." 

The way to give parents 
sufficient confidence in meet- 
ings to raise issues and con- 
tribute to debate was to 
introduce them to committee 
work and give them experi- 
ence in role playing, she said. 

The experts believe that the

nors will have a beneficial

Removing political domi- 
nation should improve the 
quality of debate, she believes, 
and says that local authority 
nominees will no longer be 
able to wield power by simply 
putting up their hand to vote 
in meetings. Decisions, she 
adds, will have to be made by 
rational argumenL 

"There is no doubt that the 
forces against parent gover- 
nors will still be very strong,” 
she said. "There are a number 
of people who are very fright- 
ened by the new situation.” 
She was referring to local 
authorities and churches who 
are afraid that the reform will 
lead to more pressure on 

Mrs Sallis’s own authority'. 
Richmond, in south-west 
London, which introduced 
parent governors in the 1970s. 
has been unable to cut the 
education budget because of 
parental pressure. 

"When a parent governor 
has the right to know that an 

adjustment in the 
pupil/teacher ratio at his 
school means that a teacher 
will be lost - that is informa- 
tion which parents can use 
and that is terribly important 
in the long run.” 

Richmond’s experience had 
been encouraging, she said. 
Parent governors there raised 
the issue of children sharing 
textbooks. Thai highlighted 
the way in which schools spent 
their “capitation” allowance 
on books and equipment 

Powerful teachers were of- 
ten able to command much 
more money than the less 
powerful and there was no 
rational budgeting. Parent 
governors discovered that 
some schools did not even use 
their capitation allowance, 
and that decisions were made 
by head teachers in secret. Ail 
that had changed. 

She added, however, that 
parent governors needed sup- 
port. They needed access to 
the school and the ability to 
make easy contact with teach- 
ers and other governors. 

"Attending a staff meeting 
is more enlightening and gives 
you more information about 
how a school works than a 
whole term of lectures.”

the Moscow session and foe 
question is: will the ripples of 
change spread throughout the 
Soviet bloc? Although Mr 
Husak. who spoke for more 
than three hours, called upon 
the delegates to start an “open 
and efficient’* discussion, the 
congress looked .set to be a 
rather calm, understated 
event. The word “reform” was 
not mentioned once. 

Rather, he justified the eco- 
nomic and political lines pur- 
sued since the Warsaw Pan 
invasion of 1968 on the 
grounds that they had main- 
tained stability and a high 

standard of living in the 
country. The stagnation of the 
Czechoslovak economy was 
partly due to “negative 
influences" from the rest of 
'the world and partly to an 
inefficient use of resources. 

“The development we have 
achieved since the early 1970s 
is a telling answer to all the 
ami-socialist and revisionist 
forces who foretold that the 
Czechoslovak Socialist Re- 
public would' never extricate 
itself from the crisis of the late

to “intensify" the economy: 
that is to deploy resources

In a clear message to 
Czechoslavakia’s dissident 
opposition, he said: “We shall 
allow no one to violate our 
laws, to undermine our politi- 
cal system, our socialist order, 
whatever lofty phrases he 
might use about freedom, 
democracy and the so-called 
struggle for human rights." 

But the Gorbachov lesson 
means that Moscow’s allies 
have to inject more self- 

criticism into their public 
gatherings. And so the 73- 
year-old Mr Husak, stumbling 
only occasionally, spoke aT 
“high-handedness and abuse 
of trust" by some Communist 
Party officials. 

There was no place in the 
office of the party for such 
attitudes, he said, earning one 
of the longest rounds of ap- 
plause in the congress so far. 
Over the past few years, he 
said, one-third of Communist 
Party secretaries and 40 per 
cent of regional party chiefs 
had lost their jobs. 

But while those figures 

sound like a purge, they 
merely represent for the most 
part a natural turnover of

I increase the . “operational

by about 20 per cent; the 
equivalent of recruiting about 
1,000 more. 

Mr Dear said the scheme 
would have implications for

“ We are spending far too

we are dealing with and not 
enough time on the streets.”

The headmaster of a sec- 
ondary school and former 
soldier, Abd al-Massih 
Kiryakos, has been held for 
the past 18 years in al-Mezze 
military prison in Damascus, 
allegedly for belonging to the 
pro-Iraqi wing erf the Baath 
Party National Command in 
Syria. Detained under the 
state of emergency laws hi

He is believed to be suffering 
from a kidney disease. 

The Baath Party has been in 
power in Syria since 1963, and 
different factions have gained 
and lost power at different 
times. Relations between Syria 
and Iraq deteriorated sharply 
in 1975, and widespread ar-

From John Earle 

Criticism is mounting over 
foe way authorities have been 
handling the inquiry into the 
poisoning of jailed Sicilian 
financier Michele Sindona. 

It has emerged that 5'£ 
hours, in which evidence 
could have been tampered 
with, elapsed before the inves- 
tigating magistrate was in- 
formed of Smdona's collapse 
and sealed the prison cell. 

Experts began yesterday, 
four days after the event, to 
analyse foe remains of coffee 
and milk served to Sindona 
for his fatal breakfast last 

The financier collapsed dur- 
ing breakfast and died 53 
boms later. 

The examination by toxi- 
cologists at Pavia University 
Institute of Forensic Medicine 
j could provide a vital clue as to 
whether Sindona committed 
suicide or was murdered. 

But. in any case, the ques- 
tion will still remain as to how 
foe poison reached the finan- 
cier, aged 65. who was last 
week sentenced to life 
inprisonment for ordering the 
murder of Giorgio AmbrosolL 
foe lawyer appointed to liqui- 
date his collapsed I talian b ank 
in 1974. 

Sindona was isolated at 
Voghera Prison, in northern 
Italy, where all his meals were 
taken to his cell in specially 
sealed containers. 

The mystery is assuming foe 
proportions of that surround-

A leading Soviet journalist, 
recently promoted by Mr 
Gorbachov, has delivered a 
swingeing attack on foe unre- 
alistic picture of life in the 
Soviet Union painted by foe 
state-controlled press, and has 
called on Soviet journalists to 
be more critical. 

In an outspoken interview 
with the magazine of foe 
powerful Soviet Journalists' 
Union. Mr Mikhail 
Nenashev, newly-appointed 
chief of the country’s vast 
publishing industry'* accused 
the Soviet press of laxity in 
informing both foe party and 
public about “difficulties, 
blunders and mistakes". 

Mr Nenashev, until last 
month editor of Sorietskaya 
Rossiya, the daily paper in the 
vanguard of Mr Gorbachov’s 
campaign for greater 
“openness", urged his fellow 
journalists, many of whom 
have long been frustrated by 
the severe restrictions im- 
posed on them, to be willing lo 
lake risks and upset those in 

His clarion call for a new 
type of Soviet journalism was 
foe most explicit and far- 
reaching of any of the recent 
internal critiques of foe me- 
dia, which are seen by Mr 
Gorbachov as a vital ally in 
his efforts to reform foe 
ramshackle and often corrupt 

“Socialism is no kingdom of 
heaven, it is an earthly phe- 
nomenon with its own prob- 
lems, difficulties and illnesses, 
mostly natural growing 
pains," Mr Nenashev said. 

“The people must hear about 
problems, shortcomings and 
mistakes first and foremost 
from foe press," 

In answer to one question, 
in which foe interviewer open- 
ly referred to much of what 
appears in foe leaden official 
press as "political drivel", Mr 
Nenashev alleged that, either 
voluntarily or involuntarily, 
Soviet reporters had been 
“smoothing over" problems 

Nuclear tests are 
likely to resume 

The Soviet Union has a num- 
ber of nndear weapons it will 
have to test over the next 
months if it is to keep abreast 
of America's defence modern- 
ization programme, according 
to Western analysts (Nicholas 
Ashford writes). 

Moscow is expected to end 
its self-imposed nuclear mora- 
torium since the US has 
dearly demonstrated with its 
Nevada explosion at the week- 
end that h has no intention of 
taking up Mr Gorbachov's 
offer for a joint test freeze. 

inside foe Soviet Union. 

"In our newspaper practice, 
we presented an over-simpli- 
fied picture of reality, which 
was far from real." he ex- 
plained, with a degree of self- 
critidsm which until recently 
would have been remarkable 
in any official publication 
here. “How could our work be 
effective if people were read- 
ing one thing and often seeing 
a completely different reality 
arou nd them?"

Doubts as FDP chief flies to sign deal 


ffled by 


From Frank Johnson. Bonn 

Herr Martin Bangemann, 
West Germany's Economics 
Minister, left for Washington 
to sign agreements, probably 
lomorrow.on the Strategic De- 
fence Initiative, or Star Wars. 

But, among other things, 
remarks at the weekend by 
Herr Helmut Haussraann, 
general secretary of the Free 
Democrats, the party of which 
Herr Bangemann is leader, 
will cause the Americans to 
wonder whether the minister's 
signature commits Bonn to 
anything in particular, other 
than to the prospect of a few 
rich contracts for West Ger- 
man companies. 

The problem is that the Free 
Democrats are on the whole 
opposed to SDI. Herr Hauss- 
mann said the remaining 
questions about it could not 
be “cleared up at troop bases", 
a reference to a meeting 
Chancellor Kohl had with the 
US Defence Secretary, Mr 
Caspar Weinberger, at the 
American base of 

Mr Weinberger was in Ger- 
many to attend the Nato 
Planning Group meeting at 
Wurzburg. The meeting at the 
base was supposed to deal 
with any doubts the West 

Germans might still have had 
atom SDI. 

But Herr Haussmann 
seemed anxious to depict it as 
a brief superficial exchange 
which could not possibly have 
done justice to so complex a 

He said remaining doubts 
could be cleared up only by 
experts. Herr Kohl was yester- 
dav reported to regard these 
remarks as “an incredible 

So it is still not known how 
for Bonn is committed on 
SDI. This is entirely because 
of West German domestic 
politics and. in particular, 
because those politics revolve 
around a government which is 
a coalition. 

Most West German politi- 
cians and parties would rather 
not have a policy on SDI — 
apart from Herr Franz Josef 
Strauss and his Bavarian 
Christian Social Union, who 
are for it Most see it as 
passing American enthusiasm' 
which will not survive Mr 
Reagan's presidency in any- 
thing like its original, inspira- 
tional form. 

They also see any Bonn 
commitment to it as damaging 
the overriding West German

Britain has reaffirmed its 
willingness to help Yugoslavia 
through its economic crisis, 
bow in its fifth year and 
showing no signs of abating. 

On a two-day visit here. Sir 
Geoffrey Howe, the Foreign 
Secretary, said Britain valued 
Yugoslavia's independence, 
non-aligmiKtit and domestic 
stability* and. in that context, 
was willing to help. 

Sir Geoffrey, speaking at a 
luncheon hosted by Mr Raif 
Dizdarevic. the Yugoslav For- 
eign Minister, said that 
Yugoslavia's economic stabili- 
zation programme was in 
keeping with the world-wide 
trend towards economic 

He said human rights were 
also a matter of special con-

the follow-up meeting on the

Yugoslavs for their opinions 
and the expulsion of British 
journalists was viewed with 
disapproval by Britain. 

for Cyprus pact 

From Mario Modiano,Atheiis 

Greece gave a warning yes- 
terday that it would accept no 
settlement on Cyprus that did 
not meet three conditions: the 
withdrawal of all occupation 
forces from the island; inter- 
national guarantees for Cy- 
prus that would deny Turkey 
any unilateral intervention 
rights and the departure of 
more than 40.000 Turkish 
settlers now living in occupied 

sion of Cyprus and encourage 
Turkish expansionism, and 
would therefore be unaccept- 
able to the Greek

spelt out in a statement just as 
Sir Geoffrey Howe, the For- 

eign Secretary, wound up an 
official visit to Greece, and 4$ 

hours before the arrival here 
of Mr Geoige Shultz, the US 
Secretary of State. 

Both have been urging Mr 
Andreas Papandreou. the 
Greek Prime Minister, to 
support the forthcoming ini- 
tiative on Cyprus of Senor 
Javier Perez de Cuellar, the 
UN Secretary-General. 

The official statement said 
these conditions were vital to 
safeguard the national security 
of Greece. "Any other 
solution," it added, “would 
vindicate the Turkish inva- 

The statement was seen as a 
hardening of the Greek posi- 
tion just before Mr 
Papandreou’s talks with Mr 
Shultz, who is expected in 
Athens later today when the 
Greeks are celebrating Inde- 
pendence Day, the 165th anni-

Strains appear in French coalition 

From Diana Geddes, Paris 

The first strains within the 
new “government of 
cohabitation" have arisen not 
from a clash between the 
Socialist President and his 
right-wing Prime Minister, as 
was expected, but from rivaliy 
within the ranks of the coali- 
tion itself. 

M Valery Giscard d'Estai ng, 
a former president, and M 
Jacques Chaban-Delmas, a 
former Gaullist prime minis- 
ter, are said to be rivals for the 
presidency of the National 
Assembly even though both 
deny seeking the post for 

It is reported that both are 
being actively supported by 
their respective parties, the 
centre-right LIDF and the 
Gaullist RPR, and have 
turned down ministerial posts 
in the new government. 

M Jacques Toubon, general 
secretary of the RPR, said that 
in accordance with parliamen- 
tary tradition, the presidency 
should go to the party with the 
most deputies, namely the 
RPR. He said M Chaban- 
Delmas, having held the post 
twice before, should be the 

right's candidate as he had the 
necessary experience. 

M Chaban-Delmas, who 
tike M Giscard dTEstaing was 
once considered a possible 
candidate for the prime 
minister’s post, said: “I know 
the work well Pve already 
done it Cor 12 or 1 3 years". But 
he was quick to add: “I’m not 
seeking a post Pve already 
had many in my life." 

Meanwhile, M Giscard 
d’Estai ng has been calling for 
“a striking demonstration of 
the union of the right by the* 

designation of a UDF member 
as president of the National 
Assembly”. But like M 
Chaban-Delmas he rays he is 
not seeking the presidency for 

Tensions between the RPR 
and its junior partner, the 
UDF, have already begun to.

ists seem to have taken the

UK-Spain extradition deal 
seals off crime bolt-hole 

From Richard Wigg, Madrid 

From July 1 no one com- 
mitting a crime in Britain will 
be able to think of Spain as a 
boll-hole, or vice versa. 

That is the firm intention of 
the two Governments, which 
signed the instrument of ratifi- 
cation Of a new extradition 
treaty here yesterday. A statu- 
tory period must elapse before 
it comes into effect this 

“Today's signing ends a 
long period in which the 
Governments of Spain and 
Britain were unable to collab- 
orate on the handing over of 
wanted criminals,” Senor Fer- 
nando Ledesma, the Spanish 
Justice Minister, said after the 
ratification document was 
signed by Lord Nicholas Gor- 
don Lennox, the British Am- 
bassador in Madrid, and 
Senor Francisco Fernandez 
Ordonez, the Spanish Foreign 

The treaty closes an eight 
year gap since the 1878 extra- 
dition treaty was allowed to 
lapse by the Franco regime, 
which argued that British 

court procedures made it vir- 
tually impossible to secure the 
delivery of wanted Spaniards. 

Senor Ledesma, who signed 
the treaty in London last July 
with Mr Leon Brittan,- then 
Home Secretary, looked for- 
ward yesterday to a new phase 
marked by a willingness on 
both sides to co-operate and 
negotiate on any difficulties. 
He promised that Spanish 
officials would see to it that 
the new arrangements func- 
tioned satisfactorily. 

The treaty must first "be 
ratified by each country’s 
Parliament. It was held up for 
several weeks in the Spanish 
Senate by pressure of other 

It applies to crimes liable to 
prison sentences of more than 
one year, including terrorism 
and financial crime. Spanish 
police able to bold 
those wanted by Britain for up 
to 40 days 

The treaty is not retroactive, 
however, and cannot affect the 
100 or so Britons reportedly 
living on the Costa del Sol and 

other Spanish resorts who are 
wanted for murder and armed 
robbery in Britain, including 
the £25 million 'Heathrow 
airport robbery of 1983. 

A dozen wanted men living 
in southern Spain have been 
served with expulsion orders 
under the new Aliens Law, but 
there have been bureaucratic 

delays and the orders can still 
be cnall 

llenged in the Spanish 
courts. . - 

Seilor Jose Bamonuevo. the 
Interior Minister; insisted re- 
cently that. Spain was deter- 
mined “to make life diffi cult” 
for British criminals. 

When asked about Scotland 
Yard complaints that some of 
those wanted had been able to 
disappear, he said that both 
British and Spanish police 
sometimes lost trace of wast- 
ed men. 

Spain does not have enough 
police to keep an effective 
watch. Even if Madrid expels 
a Briton he cannot be forced to 
return home and can choose a 
retreat further -from the atten- 
tions of the British press:

Naked worshippers lay bare dignity of police and press 

From Michael Hamlyn 

Each year devotees of the 
Hindu goddess, Renukadevi, 
gather on tbe banks of the 
Varada river ht Karnataka, 
strip and parade naked for 24 
miles to an ancient temple. 

They have been doing it for 
centuries, but recently the 
festival has become the centre 
of unenviable attention from 
the media and do-gooders 
anxious to reform the practice. 

At the weekend the festival

modicum of Indian modesty. 
Tbe crowd did not like that

thought were opposed to nude

sibly there to keep order. They

F rom Stephen Taylor, Sydney: 

‘ ;jn court here yesterday, Mr 
Malcokti Turnbull, appearing 
for' Heinemann Australia and 
Mr Wright, said the defen- 
dants maintained that much* . 
of the material in the maun’ 
script was already in the 
public domain -and that tbere

Fifteen of the l8cfaapters of 
manuscript had already been 
forwarded to the authorities in 
Britain, with an affidavit 
sworn by Mr Wright' to this' 
effect. The defendants were 
' willing to have the remaining - 
three chapters delivered to 
: lawyers acting for the Govern- 
ment and Sir Michael Havers, 
the Attorney-General, but 
wanted the bisections .to the 
memoirs particularized. 

Mr Turnbull said there were 

- two mam issues. The first was 
:the question of cobtrad, 

whether hi fact the M15 man

more time for preparation of

objections, saying the stipulat-

But Mr Justice Powell said 
it was “time to get the matter

case had its own problems, he 
added, such as whether Aus-

itself with what was in the 
public interest in Britain.

From Michael Hamlyn 

Sri Lankan Tamils in exile 
in India are openly urging Mr 
Rajiv Gandhi, the Prime Min- 
ister, to send his forces to the 
island to end what they call 
“the ongoing process of 
genocide”. . . . 

The exiles- daim that the 
only way genocide can be 
stopped “and a just and 

lasting settlement achieved is 
by a humanitarian military 
Intervention by India as the 
regional power". 

They say the Sri Lankan 
Government's unilateral ces- 
sation of bombing by its 
armed forces would be mean- 
ingless unless its troops and 
auxiliaries were withdrawn or 
an Indian peace-keeping force’ 
sent to Sri Lanka. 

Other Tamil exiles, notably 
Mr Appapillai Amirthal- 
ingham, the general secretary 
of the Tamil United Libera- 
tion Front, have compared the 
situation in Sri Lanka to that 
in east Bengal during the 
struggle for liberation from the 
West Pakistan Government. 
On that occasion, India 
intervened militarily on the 
side of the rebels.

Drama of rage and despair 


Stain of 

In a programme which was not 
altogether easy to watch. Ho- 
rizon (BBC2) traced the 
progress of AIDS from its 
juvenile life as an “obscure 
medical curiosity" to its 
present status as "one of the 
most lethal and perplexing" 
diseases of modem times. The 
single most important point 
about this disease, however, is 
that h has generated anxiety 
and outrage out of all propor- 
tion to its actual danger to the 
national population. 

Why this should be so is not 
difficult to guess and last 
night's programme confirmed 
that, although it is not a 
venereal disease, it is predomi- 
nately associated hi the public 
mind with sex — largely 
homosexual sex and always 
promiscuous sex. So for the 
prurient or the puritanical it 
carries a doable stain of 
darkness, and the fact that it is 
associated with drag-taking 
only confirms its role as some 
‘'dirty" disease connected with 
the illicit gratification of anti- 
social desires. 

Of course this is morbid 
nonsense — and dangerous 
nonsense too. since it increases 
the anxieties of those who may 
already he furtive about, or 
ashamed of, their sexuality. 

Thai is why a documentary 
such as this can be important. 
Its general tone was. as always 
in this series, dispassionate 
and this was also significant: 
the structure and incidence of 
the virus were examined in 
some detail, and in the process 
certain convenient myths were 
knocked on the head. It be- 
came dear, for example, that 
the disease may only be inci- 
dentally related to homosexual 
men. since by all accounts 
there are some 10 million 
sufferers, both male and fe- 
male. in Central Africa — a 
region which can hardly be 
described as “gay". Another 
unsettling item of information 
to emerge from this account 
was the fact that the virus 
might also destroy the brain 
cells of those who have been 

And yet even within this 
careful exegesis there did 
creep in from time to time a 
certain apocalyptic strain, no- 
ticeable in some of the inter- 
views with sufferers as well as 
in long-term projections of the 
disease. It is easy to under- 
stand why such material was 
included but. even so, it does 
encourage a sensationalism 
which is. under the circum- 
stances. unnecessary. One can 
get that sensationalism in the 
popular newspapers, and any- 
one can speculate; what is 
really needed is simple 

Peter Ackrovd 

Early last year two very differ- 
ent AIDS memoirs opened in 
New York, both dealing with 
what had already become the 
plague-panic of homosexual 
communities there and else- 
where. The one that opened 
on Broadway to generally 
more respectable and respect- 
ful reviews was William 
Hoflrnan’s .-ir Is. a 90-minute 
closet drama of extreme good 
taste which managed to pussy- 
foot around its awful subject 
so successfully that even the 
uptown Manhattan matrons 
remained unappalled. 

Downtown at Joe Japp's 
Public Theatre, and in stark 
contrast, was Larry Kramer’s 
The Normal Heart, a great cry 1 
of dramatic and journalistic 
rage at the way the AIDS 
catastrophe has been handled 
by and in New York City. 
Where As Is names no names. 
The Normal Heart indicts 
Mayor Koch, President Rea- 
gan, the Sen York Times and 
sundry other public monu- 
ments for coming too little 
and too late to the rescue of a 
gay community that had al- 
ready been decimated. 

And intriguingly, it is The 
Normal Heart that seems to 
have captured audiences out- 
side New York; it has already 
had 10 regional productions in 
America, another half-dozen 
are planned abroad. Barbra 
Streisand has bought the mov- 
ie rights (and intends not only 
to produce and direct but also 
play the doctor with hopes of 
Dustin Hoffman in the central 
role) while tonight Larry 
Kramer's drama opens at the 
Royal Court with the Ameri- 
can film star Martin Sheen 
making his London stage 

Taking its title from a poem 

by W.H. Auden which also 
includes the line "all I have is 
a voice to undo the folded lie”. 
The Normal Heart is at least in 
part autobiographical: Kra- 
mer himself is a fiftyish 
screenwriter and novelist who 
co-founded an organization 
called Gay Men’s Health Cri- 
sis and, like his hero, was 
eventually forced out of it for 
shouting too loudly in his 
political and social rage 
against what he still sees as a 
deeply anti-gay establishment 
in the United States. Talking 
to him in his book-stacked 
a pan men t high above Wash- 
ington Square, I wondered 
how the play had started, and 

“In July 1981 I suddenly 
became aware of friends get- 
ting mysteriously ill on Fire 
Island, a gay beach communi- 
ty which seems now, like 
Fitzgerald’s French Riviera, to 
belong to an altogether lost 
world. People I knew were 
suddenly dying and nobody, 
knew how or why; what’s 
more, nobody seemed to want 
to find out They were almost 
literally burying their heads in 
the sand. I guess that was 
when gay politics began taking 
up more of my time than - 

Born in Connecticut and 
educated in Washington, Kra- 
mer got his first job as a story 
editor with Columbia Pictures 
and came over to. London 
with them for the whole of the 

“My father and brother 
were lawyers, but from the 
time I went to Yale I knew I 
wanted to write, so I went as a 
messenger boy to the William 
Morris agency at 20 dollars a 
week and from there Mike 
Frankovich took me over to 

London with Columbia. I 
spent most of my time setting 
up the film of Women in Love , 
and when eventually the Co- 
lumbia deal on that fell a pan I 
left them and spent all my own 
money buying back the option 
and commissioning David 
Mercer to do the screenplay. 

“What he delivered was 
altogether more Marxist than 
anything D.H. Lawrence ever 
considered, so at this point I 
had no screenplay, no director 
and all of my own money 
locked up in the option. I 
couldn't afford to get another 
writer so I then wrote the 
script myself. and after it had 
been turned down by Peter 
Brook and Jack Gayton and 
Stanley Kramer I took it to 
Ken Russell and the rest I 
guess you know." 

Determined now to become 
a writer rather than a produc- 
er. Larry Kramer returned to 
New York in the early 1970s 
and wrote six or seven other 
screenplays that somehow 
never got in front of the 
cameras, as well as a best- 
selling gay novel called Fag- 
gots. It was at this point that 
he first became conscious of 
the deaths on Fire Island: 

“And here we are. almost 
five years on, with everything 
still getting worse. When my 
play first opened in New York 
the Times there ran a dis- 
claimer under the review, 
denying that they had ever 
tried to ignore the AIDS issue, 
and certainly they are now 
doing some major reporting of 
it. But there is still a feeling 
here in America that senior 
politicians want the whole 
issue played as far down as 
possible. President Reagan 
has still not uttered the word 
AIDS in any public statement. 

and work on the vaccine is still 
desperately under-funded. 
There’s a conspiracy of si- 
lence, and when we were in 
rehearsal they had lawyers 
from the Nevf York Times and 
the Mayor's office checking us 
out for libel. They say that 
Koch goes green whenever my 
play is mentioned, and in 
retaliation, when it Ursk 
opened and he was - asked 
about what he thought of it, he 
would simply tell everyone to 
go see As Is instead." 

What makes Kramer’s play 
so much more dangerous than 
As Is is the feet that be sees 
AIDS as a political rather than 
a medical or social issue: 
where Arthur Miller, when he 
wished to attack McCarthy- 
ism in The Crucible, went 
back three hundred years to 
find an historical parallel in 
the witch-hunts of Salem, 
Kramer stays firmly ih the 
present and indeed paints 
across the back walls of his set 
the names and numbers of 
those who have died. He also 
draws uneasy and debatable 
comparisons between the 
treatment of gays in 1980s 
America and that of Jews in 
1930s Europe: 

“I want to make people cry. 
It's as simple as that. AIDS is 
the saddest thing I shall ever 
have to know in my lifetime, 
and this is a play about the 
need for us to stand up and be 
counted. It's a play about a 
whole community threatened 
by prejudice, by fear, by 
intolerance and by an increas- 
ing conservatism." 

But, although it is m that 
sense a very American play, 
Kramer could notin feet have 
written it had be not found 
himself three summers ago at 

the National Theatre , in 

"1 went one night to see 
David Hare’s A Map of the 
World and it was only then 
that I realized hcrw to write 
The Normal Heart. You have 
to remember that we have no 
-tradition in America of con- 
temporary political plays. No- 
body ever mentions Reagan 
on Broadway; or the state of 
the nation; but here in David 
Hare's work I found actors on 
a stage actually talking about 
Mrs Thatcher, about the cur- 
rent state of government m 
England, and 1 realized how to 
do it 

“That doesn't mean Normal 
Heart has made things any 
better the gay community in 
New York is still hopelessly 

hostile world. Mayor Koch 
meanwhile goes' on as if the 
problem doesn’t exist, and 
money for research is still for 
too slow and limited Not that 
things seem any .better in 
England: I once marched- in a 
Gay Pride rally there and iz 
was pathetic. About three 
thousand people at most, and 
in the ram at that Every 
summer here in New York we 
at least manage to get a 
hundred and fifty thousand 
people on the match for gay 
rights. - 

“The Normal Heart iwas- 
written out of rage and resent- 
ment and despair, both at the 
way the non-gay world was 
treating AIDS as if it didn’t 
really affect rt, and ax the way 
gays were refusing all the 

divided politically, and they militant options. And the rage 
still can’t get themselves to- and resentment and despair

‘I do have a lot of sympathy for Judy, though I’m sure she would have driven me crazy’ 

Getting the essence: Lesley 
Mackie as Judy Garland 

“I am such a yack", apologises 
Lesley Mackie. before she explodes 
in another high-pitched raucous 
cackle. The tiny Scots actress has a 
lot to talk about at the moment. 

Having spent the majority of her 
12 years in the theatre playing 
“characterful juves” and “comedy 
maids" in provincial rep. she now 
finds herself at 33 starring in a West 
End musical — Judy, based on the 
life of Judy Garland opening at the 
Strand tomorrow. 

She and Judy look from the 
outside like a couple of swells, 
striding in arm-in-arm, flushed with 
the success of a run at Greenwich. 
In feci the history of the play is like 
one of those Garland-Rooney 
showbiz fairy-tales. It was written 
by her actor-husband Terry Wale 
when they were both out of work in 

1984. Leslie Mackie had by then 
done a couple of provincial produc- 
tions of Pam Gems's Piaf. she 
thought she would never find 
another part so tailor-made for her. 
So her husband wrote a play about 
Judy Garland. “Judy's the only 
other legend apart from Piaf who is 

The play passed more or less 
unnoticed in its first productions in 
Worcester and Bristol, but at Green- 
wich both ft and Mackie got a good 
deal of attention. In feet the reviews 
from Greenwich mean that the 
Strand can proclaim her perfor- 
mance as “a tour de force 1 " and 
describe her as “a blazing theatrical 
personality” even before the show 
opens. But. while such Press trib- 
utes may do wonders for the box- 
office, they must also put a huge 
strain on the star. 

Her biggest worry is about the 
strain on her voice. She does 16 
songs in the show, from the young 
Garland's film numbers like “Over 
the Rainbow” and "The. Trolley 
Song" to the slow balids of the later 
concert career. 

“I have to go through from age 14 
to 47 — and even Judy was never 
asked to do that I don’t imperson- 
ate her; there’s no way you could do 
an impersonation to coverall those, 
years. In the speaking I do go as near 
as I can to her real voice; but as fer 
as the singing goes I thought it 
would be silly to copy, because she 
us inimitable. 

“What I have done is copied her 
technique, like her breathing habits. 
She had asthma as a child, and in 
the songs she used to breathe in the 
most extraordinary places. She also 

had an ‘s* feull, and her vowels were 
quite unusual; she often sounded 
more English, than American.. I 
incorporate these things in the 
singing, and the idea is that.peaple 
might think frhal reminds me of 
Judy Garland* not ‘that’s somebody 
trying to copy her’. What I set out to 
do was to gCt .the essence of the

"Every time she came On stage 
she was proving she could fight

Festival Hall 

This was the London Sin- 
fonietta's farewell to the GLC. 
but noL one hopes. 10 the kind 
of informal music-making 
ihat the partnership of orches- 
tra and local authority has 
made possible. There must be 
many people who would be 
wary of committing them- 
selves to a two-hour con cert of 
new and unknown music, but 
who were happy to drop in for 
a taste of this weekend of 
recitals and talks. Similarly 
there is a great deal of contem- 
porary music that is not much 
helped b> the rigidities of 
normal concert-giving. 

Among the events on offer 
were a performance of Pierrot 
iunairc by Linda Hirst and an 
evening focused on the music 
ofGyorgy Kurtag. but my own 
tasting was of Sunday ‘after- 
noon's programme including 
three first performances of 
works by Michael Rosen- 
zweig. I had not been much 
impressed by the Symphony 
in One Movement of his that 
was played at the Barbican 
four months ago. but some- 
thing of the piece was still 
lumbering about in my head 
and suggesting a musical mind 
at work. The evidence of two 
Solos for wind instruments, 
flute and bass clarinet, did not 
really take one any fun her. but 
the more recent Sinfonietta 
was a pleasant surprise. By 
contrast with the Symphony, 
it showed Roscnzweig fully 
able to write complex counter- 

point aware of what the bass is 
up to and why. It was also a lot - 
more clearly scored, for solo 
siring quintet with single 

It left, however, a curiously 
muddled impression. There is 
a quick first movement of 
spiky vitality recalling the 
neo-classical Stravinsky, but 
then this subsides into a 
substantial elegy, where a very 
different composer. Brahms, 
is suggested by the combina- 
tion of clarinet and strings or 
the prominence of the hom 
(taken up to a note 1 feel sure I 
have never heard before from 
this instrument, but one bril- 
liantly scaled by Phillip 
Eastop). What are not in 
doubt any more are the seri- 
ousness of Rosenzweig's in- 
tentions or his technical 
capacity. He just needs to 
form a composing self or 
make the split in his musical 
personality more evidently

Festival Hall 

In common with some of my 
colleagues. I find it difficult to 
put in a good word for Carl 
Orffs Camili Carmina. the 
work with which Klaus 
Tcr.nstedi. happily back at 
work following his illness, 
mystify ingly chose to follow 
his Mahler of last week. 

ft is a tedious piece in every 
rcspccL more so even than 
Carmina Buruna. which for 
all ns painful naivety can still 
be lun. Its more famous sister 

benefits, too, from the superfi- 
cial excitement of a largish 
orchestra, where in Catulli 
Orff contents himself with 
four pianos and 10 percus- 
sionists and uses them only in 
the Prologue and Epilogue. 
Ten percussionists can, of 
course, make a mighty noise, 
but here they usually did not: 
frankly, all that manpower 
seemed a little wasteful 

As did that — and there was 
a lot more of it — of the 
London Philharmonic Cho- 
rus. for all their lustily com- 
mitted efforts. TTiey, nat- 
urally, were given every cliche 
in the book, so that even 
Catullus’s lewdist lines had 
little effect of shock, and all 
the (literally) monotonous 
chanting, the supposedly ec- 
static screaming and so on. 
were as naught. It may be that 
the piece works better when it 
is presented as action on stage, 
as Orff intended, but how 
much more a service to his 
classical model, and to musi- 
cal experimentation, was Stra- 
vinsky in his Oedipus Rex. 

And Stravinsky it was who 
provided the evening's real 
music, in the shape of the 1919 
Suite from The Firebird. Al- 
though casting away the 
gloom of what went before 
was a difficult task, the Lon- 
don Philharmonic Orchestra, 
now restored to a more nor- 
mal complement, did a fine 
job. delivering a performance 
of dazzling, shimmering col- 
ours. all exquisitely balanced, 
with the kind of aplomb that 
makes this partnership of 
conducterand musicians such 
a special one.

Studies of the Nude could be 
seen as propaganda for British 
art schools, which for all their 
faults are admired throughout 
the world. William Packer in 
his introd union quotes Pape: 
"Know then thyself, presume 
not God to scan; the proper 
study of mankind is Man", 
which he says was preached to 
him during his life classes. 
However, it is not the academ- 
ic strictures of Ugiow, Cold- 
stream and the Slade that 
shine at Marlborough, 

In die illustrious company' 
he is keeping. Uglow's- dry 
formulas are shown up for 
what they are. the waving of 
the old school lie in the 
public’s face. The much-publi- 
cized Standing Nude. Blue 
Dress 1 1 looks like a student’s 
study when seen alongside 
Auerbach’s power. Bacon's 
startling new yellow painting 
and Brett Whiteley’s sensual 
exploitation in the line of an 
odalisque. Once the visitor 
has been . faced by a giant 
Moore. Draped Reclining 
Mother and Baby, and a small 
drawing. Half Figure of a 
Woman, that possesses the. 
same fullness of flesh, pres- 
ence and dignity, he is in no 
mood even to glance at 
Ugiow. The other painters' 
straightforward delight in the 
subject-matter pulls the eyes 
away. It seems no accident 
that the idea for the show 
originally came from Francis 
Bacon, who never attended art 

The Marlborough exhibi- 
tion (until May 2) does not 
convey the full wealth of 
British an. It was never in- 
tended 10 do so. However, in 

the pursuit of its theme, many 
of the country’s most estab- 
lished painters demonstrate 
some of their persevering 
qualities. There are examples 
of Lucian Freud's and John 
Davies's unyielding scrutiny. 
Kitaj and Hockney give dis- 
plays of their draughts- 
manship. Howard Hodgkin 
records an occasion. In a hotel 
bedroom, in his inimitable 
fashion. There are some pleas- 
ant surprises. John Piper has 
contributed compelling draw- 
ings of women in chalk, ink 
and watercolour, Richard 
Hamilton’s Nude 1954 plays 
with our vision and Pasmore’s 
The Studio of Ingres, which 
used to belong to Kenneth 
Clark, is included. 

Auerbach's three works, 
with their sheer joy of paint, 
power of emotion and ambi- 
guity, pave the way for the 
follow-up exhibition of youn- 
ger artists the gallery are 
planning. If they are as gener- 
ous in the inclusion of non- 
gallery artists as they have 
been in the first part, a second 
such show could prove ex- 
tremely important. One Scot- 
tish painter who should be 
included is John Bellany. 

Bellany is a painter's paint- 
er. It is therefore ironic that 
the work of his that has 
achieved most publicly is Ian 
Botham's portrait. It is a bold 
icon of one of England’s 
sporting heroes (or scape- 
goats). but it does not give any 
indication of the sensitive 
depictions of Bellany’s family 
and friends that make up the 
exhibition at the National 
Portrait Gallery (until May 
1 3) or indeed his studio works, 
some of which can be sent at 
Fischer (until Thursday). 
Moreover the cricketer is por- 
trayed in the same sickly hues 
of Beilany’s other recent 
works, many of which are 
concerned with sickness and 
the balance of mind. This 
reflects the painter’s own trou- 
bled life. In the last two years 
he has made an extensive trip 
to Australia, his second mar- 
riage has broken up. his 
second wife has died and he 
himself contracted a near-fetal 

Charon's Boat, with its 
pyramid of singing corpses,

any's thoughts. Spes Maris

The old 

Don Gio vanni : 

The citizens of Nancy must 
feel well acquainted '* with 
Ruggero Raimondi’s Don 
Giovanni. In recent weeks he 
has stalked across, ibe screen 
of the local cinema in Joseph 
Losey’s celluloid version and 
appeared in the .flesh in the 
town's handsome Opera-The- 
atre. But here the long-cele- 
brated portrayal- of a -single 
character has spilled over hno 
an all-embracing view of the 
whole opera: Raimondi not 
only sings tirc tiile-rolc, but 
directs Nancy's new Don 
Giovanni as- wefl. -- 
Fears that the burden of 
captaining ti*. team might 
impair the baritone's individ- casi be quickly 
dispelled. His Giovanni may 
no longer pass for 22; but the 
physical ind vocal menace 
inherent in bis performance is 
undimmrd. One -important 
aspeci^esperially in a small 
frouse like Nancy's, is its old- 
fashioned theatricality. Ad- 
vancing io the footlights, 
Raimondi hurled' the Cham- 
pagne Aria at the audience 
with Rabelaisian vigour. (The 
resident orchestra, which pla- 
■ yed acceptably elsewhere, nev- 
er had a hope of matching the 
singer for pace or power here.) 
He made his escape at Act I's 
conclusion through the audi- 
torium, a r brazen figure in 
Hack leather. His confronta- 
tion with John Tranter's im- 
pressively weighty Com- 
mendarore in the finale was a 
splendidly \ sustained vocal 

stoggmg-maich? \ 

These were obvious high 
points, .but Raimiondfs char- 
acterization- also had its sub- 
tle! iesihis devastating eft*, 
ecu ve put-down- : of Ottavio 
and, Masetto, simply by ad-

respective women; the danger- 
ora jokmess of his relation- 
ship ' with Leporello; the 
honeyed tones of his seduc- 
txort of Zeriina; or the con- 
trasting hint of barely-sup- 
pressed brutality in his 
deatings.wjth Elvira. 

Raimondi’s Giovanni may 
remain enthralling; his Gio- 
vanni&moTc problematic. On 
the plus is its vivid, 
physically extrovert quality, 
well complemented by Carlo 
Tomm&si’s realistic-looking 
sets: giant blocks of mock- 
masonry that revolved and 
slid noiselessly into an ambi- 
tious series of' iSth-centurv 
.townscapes. Producer and df- 
rector combined best, per- 
haps, in the final scene. The 
supper room (replete with real 
minstrels in galleries) sudden-' 
ly spun away as the Com- 
mendatore entered, and we 
were back in the graveyard. 
Then, after Giovanni's de- 
mise, the slabs swung inwards 
again, leaving ^porello and 
Elvira hi the epilogue to daw 
pathetically at a massive stone 

In other important ways, 
though, Raimondi's ideas 
seemed flawed from the start, 
when his Giovanni — neither 
masked nor in flight from 
Donna Anna (indeed the two 
embraced passionately after 
their first exchange) - killed 
the Commendatore in full 
view of the lady. Perhaps this 
only makes explicit what the 
opera hints an that Anna’s 
later desire for revenge hides 
her own guilt about her 
rather s death. But by remov- 
ing any vestige of ambiguity at 
the outset Raimondi hid, one 
jdt, diminished : the opera’s 

Thai said, it did open the 
way for Karen Hufistodt. re-

turn the troubled Anna into a

like daughter 


Feminism is often blamed for the erosion 
of the traditional family. In the first 
of a two-part series, Bel Mooney looks at 
how the modem woman sees her role 

A son is your son til he takes 

a wife, 

A daughter's 
the rest of her life. 

The traditional saying eucap- . 
snlates within its neat, bal- 
anced structure a whole 
unbalanced world of expecta- 
tion. Mothers produce sons 
to be unlike themselves, to go 
out and take their places m 
tiie world. They produce girls 
as mirror images of them- 
selves, binding them emo- 
tionally for ever. .. or so the 
theory goes.

rous, fit to marry men of 
posltMm.Ceitahily it is hard 
to abandon past images. The 
relationship between mothers 
and daughters is recognized 
as establishing patterns of 
attitude and behaviour which 
influence generation after 
generation — even If at some 
point one daughter rebels. 

It was Frond who in- 
troduced ns to tbenotion that 
the differences between the 
sexes arise from the fact that 
(for most people) the first 
most important person in 
each childhood is a woman. 
What do girls learn from 
their mothers? Why, to be 
mothers, of course. 

And so the thinking still 
goes, despite 10 years of 
trmnpeted equality under the 
law. Consider: in 1956 
Simone de Beauvoir's The 
Second Sex went into its 
second printing, and when 
McCalls magazin e ran an 
article about unhappy wives 
and mothers, editors were 
amazed at the response; by 
1966 The Feminine Mystique 
by Betty Friedan was selling 
well in paperback here. 

tiie Women's Movement had 
in America; by 1976, 
The Female Eunuch 
already a classic, we had not 
only a Sex Discrimination 
Act and Equal Opportunities 
Commission, bat the first 
woman leader of a political 
party. . 

Yet in 1986, when the 
increase in reported rapes 
shocks tiie nation, it is 
quickly ■" whispered abroad 
♦hat tfiiy ig because feminism 
has made women, abandon 
their traditional virtues, and 
poor mothers, mean violent 
and disruptive boy children. 

The hand that rocks the 
cradle is the hand that rules 
the world, so it must follow 
that if the world slums signs 
of disease it is the fault of 
that first — mother's — hand. 
At the beginning of the 
sixties Betty Friedan wrote 
that mothers would always 
take the Maine — so great is 
their perceived burden of 

Yet It is still sought Clare 
Raynor's huge postbag con- 
vinces her that “the desire to 
be a married lady with chil- 
dren is constant”. Friedan. 
saw the process as inevitable: 
“ is still easier for a 
woman . . .to live through her 
husband and children than to 
make a road of bar own in the 
world. For she is the daugh- 
ter of that same mother who 
made it so hard for a girl . . . 
to grow up.” 

De Beauvoir described the 
atavistic collusion: “My mo- 
ther’s whole education and 
that for a woman the greatest 
thing was to become the 
mother of a. family. Sim 
couldn’t play that part unless 
I:. played- the dutiful 
daughter. 44 Of course few 
mothers want to break the 
imnw-daughter-rnmn chain 

Sharing motherhood: Rose Massey and ber adopted daughter Jackie 

Generation gap: Caroline and Alice Scott, anrased by their differences 

‘I think it 
is odd not 
to have 
children 9 

Jackie Massey typifies the 
traditional attitude to mother- 
hood — something of 
which she is proud. In 1 958, at 
the age of 1 7, she gave birth to 
Daniel, after a stable relation- 
ship with her boyfriend Paul 
since she was 15. He is 10 
years older than her. and 
works as a painter and decora- 
tor. They talk of marriage but 
Jackie sees no hurry. 

On the surface, that marks 
her as a member of a more 
liberated generation; such ease 
of choice would not have been 
dreamt of when her mother, 
Rose, was 18. Still. Jackie's 
expectations and aspirations 
exactly mirror her mother's, 
and the two women share a 
particular kind of female 
closeness. Each day Jackie 
brings the baby to her 
mother's small South London 

Rose was one of a large 
family, and escaped from her 
strict Catholic girlhood by 
coming to England and quick- 
ly marrying Pete, a widower 
with a young family. “I’d 
always loved babies, and was 
always looking after them. 
Not so much dolls, I preferred 
the real thing! Always mother- 
ing.” Rose, with her ready- 
made family, also wanted 
children of her own. When it 
proved impossible, she adopt- 
ed Jackie: “That's why I 
always think it's so uncanny, 
how like me she is.” 

Despite her religion. Rose 
was “delighted” when Jaddei 
told her she was pregnant. “1 
think I couldn’t wait for the 
day when she’d have babies. It 
would be like having her all 
over again, “Deep down I 
knew she'd have babies early. 
Of course Pete was upset at 
first because he wanted bigger 
and better things for her, but 
now he’s happy." 

And what did Jackie want? 
“Well, when I was a little girl I 
always played with loads of 
dolls. If I thought of a job it 
was a nursery nurse — always 
something with babies. I 
couldn't wait to have one of 
my own. I know you get some 

women who don't want ba- 
bies. but to me it's odd.” .As 
for the son who toddles round 
the liny dining room, adored 
by his mother and grandmoth- 
er. Jackie confesses that her 
boyfriend wants him to be 
tough, but she wants to 
“smother him. i suppose”. 

Girls like Jackie Massey 
shrug all distant notions of 
sexual equality aside as noth- 
ing to do with them. Yet Rose 
and Jackie have, in a curious 
way, their own matriarchal 
power traditional and beyond 
the politics of housework. 
Much feminist literature ig- 
nores this; for example, two 
collections of writings (Ad 
Turning Back and Sweeping 
Statements 1 have selections 
on everything from male vio- 
lence to work — but none 
called Motherhood, k is as if 
the reality of women’s inherit- 
ed needs is too complex. 

More recently, the “Earth- 
mother” myth has seen a 
revival, and the mother- 
daughter relationship cele- 
brated. One American writer. 
Judith Arcana, asserts baldly: 
“Mothers socialize their 
daughters into the narrow role 
of wife-mother, in frustration 
daughters reject their 
mothers . . ” Such drama ig- 
nores the fact that many 
daughiers want so to be 

’Instead of 
you must 
now have 
a career’ 

Such a mother is Caroline 
ScoiL Her daughter, Alice, is 
17 and a pupil at Queen’s 
College, the Harley Street 
girls' public school. Caroline 
was frustrated in her ambition 
to go to university and is 
disappointed that Alice has 
rejected her own chance. Car- 
oline, divorced when Alice 
was six. has always worked as 
a secretary and believes in 
most liberal feminist ideas: 
Alice wants a while wedding, 
and rejects them. The two 
seem amicably amused by 
their differences. Mrs Scott 
says that, because the horizons 
were much narrower when she 
was a giri. she always assumed 
she would get married and 
have children. Which seems 



more important in her imagi-,e t at 
nation, marriage or a job? h St

her own . . . “I’d want her

rejected her ideas, and opted" *■ 
for feminist celibacy? “It 
would shock me. becuase I’m 
not like that. Because I'd

Andrew Gifford used to be an 
viser to David Steel. At the 
tunning of Mrs Thatcher's first 
in he joined fellow ex-advisers 
Edward Heath and James 
.llaghan to guide clients through 
; shifting maze. He found "a jot

iny of them former civil ser- 
ins or political researchers, is 
it they know the names ot 
%cure principals and assistant 
Vretaries who actually wnte the 
•pers on which ministers decide 
nicy. f 

■Decisions are frequently made 
■the large grey areas where avil 
Krants act on their own initia- 
te, neither informing nor con- 
Iting their ministers. A former 
jridon-based diplomat points 
\ that, if he had received a 
H^phone call at 5 am from the 
Htish -official at the United 
ations asking how he should 
r ie in the next five minute* he 
bukl have been crucified if he 
r d woken a minister who only 
a . to bed at 2 am after a late 
p morons vote. “I would. tell him 
Vw to vote, and report jt to the 
Jnister later in the day." 

Good officials are supposed to 
>ow the minister’s mind better 
‘an their own. But, as the 
‘estland affair illustrates, the 

ambiguities of authority can lead 
to acute embarrassmenL 

In principle, civil servants are 
the estate managers who stay on, 
while their landlords chop and 
change according to tne 
electorate’s whim. In fact, once in 
power, most ministers are per- 
suaded by Whitehall’s appeals for 
•‘reaJilv" As Sir Patrick Naime, 
former Permanent Secretary at foe 
Department of Health and Social 
Security, says: “When they have a 
chance to know what the facts are, 
they sometimes think the existing 
plans are exactly what they want. 

The Civil Service knows the lie 
of the land, and is far better able to 
studv the implication of opposi- 
tion* policy than the political 
parties themselves. Man dan ns say 
they draw their ministers’ atten- 
tion to their own manifesto 
pledges more often than they 
suffer abuse for trying to thwart 
ministers’ aims. Recently. for 
example, civil servants had to give 
firm reminders to the Scottish 
Secretary Malcolm Rifkind and 
the Agriculture Secretary Michael 
Joplingof the government's policy 
to privatize lands owned by the 
Forestry Commission. The de- 
partmental ministers seemed to 
have hoped this had been 
forgotten. „ . 

William Plowden. a former a vil 
servant who is now director of the 
Royal Institute of Public Adminis- 
tration. argues that: “The doctrine 
of ministerial responsibility for 
departmental acts no longer fits 
the facts of governmental life at 
the end of the twentieth century. 
Ministers cannot know all that is 
going on in their departments and, 
when things go wrong, they usual- 
ly do not resign." 

The last time a minister re- 
signed over a civil servant's error 
was in 1954, over the Crichel 
Down affair. More recently James 
Prior, then Northern Ireland Sec- 
retary, staved after the Maze 
breakout, while the prison gover- 
nor resigned- But nowhere do the 
rules explain that civil servants are 
accountable for administrative 

mistakes, and ministers for policy 
failure. John Ward, general secre- 
tary of the First Division Associa- 
tion. asks: “Do officials now carry 
the can for the mistakes of their 

The traditional rules were re- 
stated in classic Whitehal l fo rm 
last year by Sir Robert Armstrong. 
The core of the code was punchy 
and unequivocal: “The Civil Ser- 
vice as such has no constitutional 
personality or responsibility sepa- 
rate from the duly elected govern- 
ment of the day" The document 
was intended, in Sir Robert s 
words. to “steady nerves" after the 
Ponting trial; it has in fact spurred 
the backbench Select Committee 

on the Civil Service to launch a 
lengthy inquiry, to report this

Sir Robert Armstrong is the 
real-life Sir Humphrey - 
Secretary to the Cabinet 
Prime Minister's confidant 
arch-mandarin — who has 
entered the limelight over 
Westland, Ponting, GCHQ, 
and wielded growing influ- 
ence since his appointment 
five years ago. 

He wears a double crown: 
he is also Head of the Hope 
Civil Service, a combination 
of jobs that critics say sits 
on easily on one pair of 
shoulders. (He says the lat- 
ter post is largely titular). 

If anyone can resolve the 
apparent contradiction of si- 
multaneously acting as Mrs 
Thatcher's right-hand man 
and the senior representative 
of the Civil Service, he can. 
Even critics concede _ his 
brilliance in the traditional 
mandarin skills.

Sir Robert: power broker 

Clive Ponting’s probably 
jaundiced view is that Arm- 
strong is “the eminence grise 
of British govern- 
ment ... the supreme ma- 
nipulator and fixer”. But he 
has survived a long tight- 
rope walk without falling off. 
His attempted compromise 
back-down over GCHQ was 
overridden by Mrs Thatcher, 
yet he has emerged from the. 
Westland mire as prime 
defender of her integrity. 


He who controls the agen- 
da and minutes wields As 
power, said the fate Richard 
Crossman. Ministers must 
go through the Cabinet Sec- 
retary to raise an issue. 
Armstrong and his staff 
record Cabinet and Cabinet 
Committee decisions. Each 
week be meets his senior 
permanent secretaries; min- 
isters rarely have similar 
time to discuss policy outside

ingham Palace and the can-

cal. Armstrong was principal 
private secretary to both 
Heath and Wilson. 

Just 59, he is due to retire 
next March. 

Sue Partridge was attracted 
to a career in the Civil 
Service by its prospects of 
secure, long-term employ- 
ment and the opportunities it 
offered for promotion. Eigh- 
teen years later she has 
advanced from an £8-a-week 
clerical assistant to £11,000- 
a-year higher executive offi- 
cer in the Department of 
Trade and Industry’s north- 
west regional office.

Karl Lagerfeld has load a

By the standards of men's

Lagerfeld's takeover of 'Ver-

there was the sight of Karl 
flanked ' on one side by 
DanieDe Mitterrand and on

T he buzz word in Paris 
is ‘cohabitation'. It 
expresses, with a ris- 
que ring, the facts of 
French political life. And 
while the Left isbedding down 
with the Right, fashion is also 
. swinging between conserva- 
tive and radical chic. 

A return to tailoring and to 
the roots of French couture is 
giving us a seductive Paris 
season. But streetwise design- 
ers strike a harsher note with 
sober colours, strict lines and a ' 
Marxist message. 

Swing and cling is the 
fashion- story. A ballet theme 
brings puffball skirts, peplums 
that twirl like a tutu, full- 
skirted riding coats and any- 
thing — from a cape back to a 
fluted hem — that can give us a 
runway whirl 
Againstthe swing are figure- 
hugging jersey and finely- 
seamed flannel both favourite 
fabrics for the tubular dresses 
that are a star garment of the 
■ season. ' 

The two trends cohabited 
perfectly in Claude Montana's 
collection, where perky jack- 
. els, impeccably cut in blonde 
cashmere, swung out like 
Baby Doll nighties over skin- 
ny suede trousers. This was a 
strong silhouettes to match the 
big-shouldered outline Mon- 
tana gave to the fashion world 
exactly ten years ago. He has 
now softened those shoulders 
on his new full-skirted . coat. 

M ontana’s attention 
to detail remains 
exceptional: wool 
jacquard embroi- 
dery on forest green suede (a 
Paris colour), gauntlets cuffed 
as falcon V wings and ice 
crystal, beading.' 

Mflgler played it cool — if 
that is the word to describe his 
curvaceous ice maidens, their 
bodies sculpted in pastel tai- 
loring, snowflakes worked in 
relief on their sweaters or 
crystal studding their vanilla 
chamois leather suits.

produced the most original

Jumping Jack 

• The man who bestrode the trade 
. -union world like Colossus, whose 
opinion was sought on almost 
.every important decision during 
the Wilson and Callaghan govern- 
ments. is about to go public: brace 
yourself for the Jack Jones auto- 
biography. Entitled Union Man. 
it will be published this summer 
and promises to contain salutary 
advice to Norman WiUis ct aL 


Ten yearn ago. in a speech at, 
Ruskin College. Oxford. James' 
Callaghan, then prime minister, 
sparked off the “great debate” on 
education. After castigating vari- 
ations in standards, the lack of a 
core curriculum, the gulf between 
industry and education and the 
questionable results of informal 
teaching methods, he concluded: 
“We must aim for something 

The Ruskin speech was fol- 
lowed by a senes of regional 
conferences. Parents, teachers, the 
local authorities and repre- 
sentatives of industry and trade 
unions came and debated. A 
decade later, the themes of that 
debate are sounding still. 

There have been significant 
changes. Take the role of parents. 
They did not serve as governors of 
the schools their children at- 
tended. They were seldom wel- 
come even as visitors. That 
situation was transformed by the 
Taylor Committee which, in 19J7, 
called for a quarter of places on 
governing bodies to go to parents. 
Provision for parent .governors 
was incorporated in my 1978 
Education Bill, which was halfway 
through its committee stage when 
halted by the general election. It 
became law in the Conservatives’ 
1980 Education Act 

In the Education Bill published 
recently by Sir Keith Joseph 
parent power is being further 
extended. The governing bodies of 
secondary schools are to have five 
parents. These will be empowered 
to set out their policy for what 
should be taught in consultation 
with the local education authority 
and head teacher. 

Parent power has been strength- 
ened by a right to information 
about schools, first advocated in a 
circular in 1977 and subsequently 
enacted in legislation. I did not 
require schools to publish exam- 
ination results, because com- 
parisons can be highly misleading 
if the social composition of school 
catchment areas is not taken into 

Parents now at least have an 
opportunity to influence the 
education system. It may not yet 
have been fully grasped. But the 
potential is there. 

Educational change moves 
slowly. Reform percolates through 
scores of organizations and in- 
stitutions, each one with a finger 
in the pie. "You are leaving a 
ministry which works on a 24- 
hour timescale for one where the 
timescale is eternity.” a civil 
servant told me in- 1967 when I 
moved to the DES from the 
Ministry of Labour. 

An idea that fails 
through lack of 
qualified teachers 

' He' was rightl Take' the basic list 
of subjects, the core curriculum, 
advocated in the great debate. In 
many schools it is still only an 
aspiration. A highly desirable 
reform would be to base numbers 
and types of teachers on the 
subjects offered in a particular 
school. That cannot be achieved 
because of acute-, shortages of 
maths, science, craft, design and 
technology teachers. The objective 
is agreed inside the classroom and 
out. but the means are lacking. 

Similarly, everyone agrees there 
should be closer links between 
schools and industry. The concern 
is a hardy perennial. 

I became Education Secretary in 
September 1976. Project Technol- 
ogy and the Central Business 
Institute's Understanding British 
Industry were being, vigorously 
promoted in ihe schools. The 
Science Research Council was 
setting up teaching companies. 
Four-year engineering courses 
were being introduced. With 
much fanfare. 1 inaugurated a 
national engineering scholarship 

.Alison, severely handicapped by 
Down's syndrome, is almost 20. 
She sits on a bean-bag in her 
parents’ home in Harrogate, 
watching television, burbling, 
occasionally bursting into gales of 
laughter. She cannot speak. She 
loves company, music, and water. 
Give her a bath and the problem is 
gening her out ofiL She can barely 
feed herself, but let her loose in the 
garden and she eats the grass. 

On trips out she goes in a 
pushchair. Until December she 
spent every weekday at the adult 
training centre in Gateshead. 
Stimulated by the company, the 
training and the entertainment, 
she was making slow progress. Her 
mother. Anne, has now given up 
her pan-time teaching job to care 
for Alison because the family has 
moved to Harrogate, whose social 
services department cannot offer a 
(raining centre place or even say 
when one will be available. 

Her father, Roy Bradshaw, says 
the progress Alison had made in 
the ‘ three years since leaving 
school is slipping away. “Try as we 
do, we cannot at home give her the 
stimulation a training centre pro- 
vides or the expert specialist 

There are thousands of mentally 
handicapped children in 
Britain.tens of thousands of men- 
ially ill patients — many dis- 
charged from long-stay 
hospitals — and tens of thousands 
of disabled people for whom local 
authority social services are either 
absent or inadequate. 

Alison's case is somewhat dif- 
ferent from all th^others because 
her father works for Mencap. the 
Royal Society for Mentally Handi- 
capped Children and Adults. He is 
its northern divisional manager, 
moving to Harrogate from Gates- 
head after promotion. But despite 
his knowledge of voluntary and 
local authority support, and de- 
spite giving Harrogate eight 
months' notice of the move, he 
cannot find the services' Alison 
needs because not enough of them 
exist. What chance, then, has 
someone without his knowledge?

scheme, jointly financed by in- 
dustry and the government. 

But governments have a habit 
of abandoning or downgrading 
their predecessors’ initiatives. Ten 
years on, Britain is even worse off 
for graduate engineers and for 
people with skills in the new ■ 
technologies. Switching scarce 
places in higher education from 
the arts and humanities to science 
and technology, as the govern- 
ment proposes, will not help, for 
the schools are .not producing 
enough A-level students qualified 
in those subjects. 

The problem lies deeper. It lies 
with the shortage of science teach- 
ers and with our absurdly over- 
specialized secondary exam- 
ination system, which allows 
pupils to drop maths and science 
at 16 and even younger. 

The dispute between advocates 
of comprehensive secondary 
schools and selection of children 
for schools on grounds of ability - 
go on. and on. It will certainly flare - 
up if the Tory radical right 
succeeds in putting vouchers on 
the agenda. But in fact it is a 
dispute that is merely an echo of 
old. dead battles. 

Objective research, such as the 
ambitious study by the National 
Children's Bureau, shows that the 
qualities of an individual school 
matter more than the system. 
Good comprehensives offer a 
better education than poor selec- .. 
five schools and vice versa. The 
quality of bead and teaching staff 
is viral, although inadequate sup- 
plies of books and equipment and 
poor maintenance of school build- 
ings have their part to play in 
explaining performance. 

Today the issue of how good the 
secondary schools are is being 

overtaken by the rapid growth of 
sixth-form and tertiary colleges, 
able to offer a much wider 
curriculum than the traditional 
sixth form, and an adult, at- 
mosphere in- which discipline 
ceases to be a problem. Already 
many independent school pupils 
are transferring to local authority 
colleges for sixth-form work. 

Sixth-form and tertiary colleges 
also offer a solution to the least 
defensible and most damaging of 
all the divisions in our segregated 
education system, the academic- 
vocational divide. Young men 
and women in the tertiary colleges 
can study for technological and 
vocational qualifications along- 
side those dtfihg A-Ievels, and can 
combine subjects drawn.- from 
both; that is impossible in most 
school sixth' forms: and even in 
many sixth-form colleges. 

This new opportunity is echoed 
lower down the secondary school 
structure by the present gov- 
ernment's commendable tech- 
nical and Vocational Education 
Initiative (TVEI). These courses 
should be available to all pupils 
aged 14 and above, including 
those on academic courses. 

.. The past ten years have brought 
progress. But problems remain. 
The first revolves around 
teachers’ perception of their pro- 
fessional role. Badly paid- -and 
much criticized, not least' by. the 
. present- gov ernment . . teachers 
have become resentful and demor- 
alized The year-long dispute'has 
undermined support for. main- 
tained education, among parents 
and pupils. The teachers' unions 
have kicked into their own goaL

Nicholas Timmins reports on government 
embarrassment over a backbench move 
to give the disabled their rightful services 

A charter for 
home care 

which would ensure that the 
mentally and physically disabled, 
the mentally ill. and those who 
care for them all, had their needs 
properly assessed. The bill has 
acquired an impressive range of 
all-party support 

With the exception of an assess- 
ment offerers’ needs the bill itself new rights to services 
for such people. Bui what it would 
do - a nip what frightens the gov- 
ernment *- is to put effective teeth 
into the last major piece of 
legislation in this area, the Chroni- 
cally Sick and Disabled Persons 
Act of 1970. That established a 
right to services, from day care for 
the discharged schizophrenic to 
telephones for the housebound, 
bathing aids for the disabled and 
adult training centre places. 

Such services can be provided 
only after a person's need for them 
has been established. Many local 
authorities, faced with limited 
budgets, avoid formal assessments 
that would establish such a right. 
Services for the disabled are in feet 
rationed, the level varying widely 
from area to area. 

Clarke’s bill would ensure many 
more formal assessments, making 
it much more difficult for local 
authorities not to provide the 
service once the need was estab- 
lished. Disabled people would 
have the right to appoint a 
representative to help them during 
assessment of their needs: young- 
sters would no longer leave school 
with the prospect of little or no 
further support. The mentally ill 
would be assessed before being 
discharged if they had been in 
hospital for longer than six 

months, and for the first time the 
assistance that carers need to look 
after a mentally or physically 
disabled person adequately at 
home would be assessed. 

The bill puts the government in 
a dilemma. It cannot easily oppose 
a measure designed to ensure that 
disabled people receive services to 
which they are already entitled, 
but it is worried about the 
financial implications. Its re- 
sponse has been to issue a consul- 
tative document which supports 
the bill in principle but waters 
down its provisions. It proposes, 
for example, that the timetable the 
bill (ays down for assessing the 
needs of those leaving school 
should be dropped as too admin- 
istratively burdensome The same 
problem applies, it says, to the 
proposal that longer-stay mentally 
ill people should be assessed a 
minimum of 28 days before 
discharge from hospitaL It sug- 
gests only that local social services 
departments should be notified of 
impending discharges. 

The government endorses the 
principle that carers' needs should 
be assessed but says that to impose 
a statutory duty to do so “would 
not be right" gi ven “the pressures 
on local authority resources”. 

The overwhelming response by 
voluntary, health and .local 
authority organizations. has been 
to back the original bin, not the 
government's suggested changes; 
but local authorities are them- 
selves worried at the cost implica- 
tions of even the government’s 
more limited proposals. The 
Association of County Councils, 

pastoral duties, from school soci- 
eties to dinner supervision. Going 
back to all those duties in ret uni 
for a small pay' increase is not 
attractive to teachers. . • i 

So a choice has to be made. Chi. 
the one hand, higher rates of pay 
for a respected professional job, 
with obligations beyond the class- 
room. willingness to accept assess- 
ment of performance and agreed 
severance for those unable to 
teach or control classes effectively; 
a commitment by employers to 
train new teachers and regular in- 
service courses for serving teach- 
ers, and a professional teachers* 
council monitoring its own stan- 
dards. On the other hand, a dock- 
watching trade, paid according to 
the time spent in .'classroom- 
teaching and with no obligations 
beyond it. ' ' • 

I prefer the former. But it will 
take much self-cxamraation by 
teachers' organization^- that are 
ppisril -between militant trade 
unionism and- uneasy profess- 
ionalism. .- 

. ,Tbe administration of educa- 
tion is in flux, too. The DES is 
powerless. It tries to work through 
agencies it does not control, the 
local education authorities. The 
Cabinet impatient to get things 
done, has used die one weapon it . 
has to hand, the centrally funded 
Manpower Services Commission. 
In consequence, the MSC has . 
invaded or taken over very large 
areas of education and training. It 
is not accountable to local educa^ 
tion authorities or even to educa^ 
tion ministers, and is resented-by 
them. _ 

Bringing together 
, , : the vocational 
and the academic _ 

It is absurd for the DES to have 
no effective powers. Yet a wholly 
' centralized department which lays 
down the curriculum and directs 
teachers would be alien to our 
. tradition. • • 

Leaving it all to parents won’t 
work either. Voucher systems run 
up against the physical limitations 
of buildings and tbe management 
capacity of head teachers. They 
may be excellent in a small school, 
inadequate in a large one. 

The solution. I believe, lies in 
two developments. At the centre, . 
education and training should be 
brought together, by incorporating 
foeMSCs youth anti adult train- 

- ing function* into' foe'DES. Such 
an- amalgamation would have 
beneficial, effects in healing die 
academic-vocational divide. It 
would encourage continuing edu- 
cation and retraining among 
adults. It would create a basis for ~ 
courses combining practical work, 
training and education: these 
would appeal specially to young- 
ster tired of formal schooling in 
the fourth and fifth forms. . . 

It should be -complemented, 
however, by a further devolution 

- of’ power to school governing 
bodies' which include - parents.

reservations, estimates that a for- j 
ther £25 million a year would be 
required for assessments and be- 
tween £50 million and £100 mil- 
lion extra on services. • 

Those who have been lobbying 
ministers fear that no extra .gov- 
ernment money will be forthcom- 
ing. Clarke, supported by - Tory 
backbenchers as well as Labour * 
and Alliance, is sticking to his . 

“We have government state- 
ment after statement saying it 
wants care in tbe community to 
develop. Norman Fowler has said 
no patient should be discharged 
from a mental hospital to a 
situation where services do nqt 
exist. Yet we all know that is 
happening. Any administrative 
difficulties could no doubt be 
eased. But we must insist that, the 
government makes available the 
necessary resource* to develop 
proper community care. _• 

“Objecting to formally assessing 
carers' needs is shortsighted. 
When an asessmeht shows that 
with a home help, ora lift. Or some 
other service they can continue to 
cope, it must- make sense to spend 
small sums of money, that . way 
rather than have the family break 
down with, the disabled person 
going into hospital or residential - 
care at a cost of hundreds . of. 
pounds a week. In some cases 
formal assessment will save public 
money, not produce extra costs. , 

“Many of these carers are 
elderly people caring for disabled 
children who are now adults. 
When the parent can no longer 
cope they can both end up in 
institutions if support services are 
not provided.”

. John Stuart MiUfe words encap- 
..sulaie 'what was,. until recently, a 
common premise of British poli- 
tics, and a cornerstone of our 
ediiferioff system. It was assumed 
that, within the limits of decency 
and public order,' a British citizen 
is free to speak his mind, and that 
political decisions should not be 
taken before a period of free public 
discussion.. It was also assumed 
' dial no educational institution ax' 
the higher level, whether college, 
university or polytechnic, could 
engage in censorship and stilt 
retain its academic standing. . 

Of course, public pressures 
make the egression of certain 
opinions- difficult: Those who 
speak on ihe' “right” know that 
they must contend with a fearful 
barrage of been peasant hasplivy. 
-Nevertheless, they learn in- due 
r. course to despise: fashionable 
[: opinion and to ignore those who 
fiveby it Even in the strongholds 
of the fefr establishment, there-

technics - it has been possible for 
a right-winger to speak his mind. 
If his prospects have suffered, it 
has been merely because, in the 
opinion- of hisrespeciable col- 
leagues^ right-wing convidtions 
are so conclusive a sign of a 
.defective intelligence as to out- 
weigh the evidence of a lifetime's 
teaching or research. 

In recent months, however, the 
position of the .right-winger has 
appreciably worsened. His opin- 
ions, are now widely censored, not 
.only in public debate but also in 
places of learning. This » es-

Since .1976 the British tax- 
payer has invested £2 biltion in 

British teyiand and, during 
"the same period, the 
company’s share of the mrricet 
has been cut by half. If you are 
a backbench Conservative MP 
from a constituency that in- 
cludes car workers or a front- 
. bench Labour spokesman, this 
record presumably makes your 
heart "swell with pride. To 
anyone else, however, the loss- 
making production of surplus 
motor vehicles for .an over- 
crowded market can hardly 
rank as an acceptable status 

That is. the justification for 
die British government’s pol- 
icy since 1980 of encouraging 
BL to cut back on . over- 
manning and restrictive prac- 
tices with a view to selling off 
the company in instalments. 
Some success in the prelimi- 
nary part of that policy can be 
claimed. The workforce has 
been halved, restrictive prac- 
tices reduced. But only the 
Jaguar company has yet- been 
.returned to the private sector. 
And the withdrawal of General 
Motors from its talks with the 
government on acquiring 
. Land Rover and British Ley- 
land Trucks — on top of the 
abandoned negotiations with 
Ford over Austin Rover — is 
disastrous for the policy. 

The proposed marriage al- 
ways had — and still has — 
industrial logic on its side. GM 
has world-wide distribution 
facilities to market the popular 

Land Rover and Range Rover. 
The combination of GM's 
Bedford truck works and Brit- 
ish Leyland vehicles offered 
just the prospect of profitable 
joint ventures that GM was 
seeking but that would have 
been a market threat to BL if 
they had been achieved with 
' some other European: partner. 
And GM has the capital to 
invest in. BL’s new develop- 
ments like the promising 
Sherpa van. 

Such a new. company would 
be considerably more than the 
sum ofits parts. Hence it really 
would be more profitable for 
GM to buy these chunks of BL 
than for BL to keep them. 
Various objections have been 
. raised. One is that GM would 
profit from past investment by 
British governments. Since the 
profits in question are hypo- 
thetical (and past investment 
in BL has not inevitably led to' 
profits), that objection should 
have detained no-one for very 

Another is that 
rationalisation attendant upon 
GM’s acquisitions would have 
led to job losses. Jobs lost 
because they represent 
overproduction in a satiated 
market will be lost anyway — 
unless they are to be perma- 
nently sustained by the British 
taxpayer. In this case, how- 
ever, the likely expansion of 
Land Rover under GM aus- 
pices would have absorbed 
many, if not ail, of the workers 
displaced by the 

rationalisation of vehicle and 
truck production. . 

But the chief obstacle has 
turned out to be those perverse 
patriots on the Conservative 
back-bencheswho prefer loses 
achieved by Britons to profits 
won under American manage- 
ment. It was to assuage their 
outrage that the Government 
and GM were negotiating an 
arrangement whereby 51 per 
cent of BL would remain in 
British hands for a period. The 
talks apparently broke down 
oyer GM’s insistence, not an 
unreasonable one, that if it 
were to inject large amounts of 
capital into BL, it should have 
an eventual option on full 

A sensible economic 
rationalisation has thus been 
averted. Other bidders, nota- 
bly a proposed management 
buy-out, are still available. But 
GM may now seek another 
partner with which to expand 
it& European production of 
trucks and vehicles. The in- 
creased competition which 
this will bring to an already 
crowded maiicet will be an 
unappealing prospect for 
would-be new owners. And if 
the new (wholly British) com- 
pany were to face job losses in 
the more competitive environ- 
ment, it is only too likely to 
seek its salvation in state 
subsidy — and if the at- 
mosphere of the last few weeks 
is any guide, to be granted it 
Such are the unintended re- 
sults of economic nationalism. 


The death of Steve Watt, the 
boxer who collapsed in the 
tenth round of a fight a 
fortnight ago, has once more 
raised the question of whether 
the sport should be prohibited. 
The powerful case against 
boxing does not, however, rest 
upon fatalities in the ring. 

Death is actually more com- 
mon in other sports. Of the 
480 deaths in British sport 
between 1969 and 1980, only 
two occurred in professional 
boxing compared, to 85 in 
.motorcycling^ 93 . in 
mountaineering, 53 in 
horseriding, 16 in canoeing, 
nine in cricket, three in karate 
and a surprising six in golf 

What distinguishes boxing 
from these is that causing hurt 
and injury to an opponent is 
the very aim of the sport. It is 
also the result. Medical ev- 
idence suggests very strongly 
that the repeated blows to the 
head endured by boxers in a 
fight produce cumulative and 
irreversible brain damage. The 
noble art of self defence con- 
sists of deliberately attempting 
to inflict brain damage on an 

Society allows its members 
to harm themselves in various 
ways, not least by smoking 
cigarettes. And when it inter- 
venes to make them avoid the 
risk of injury, as for example 
with seat-belt legislation, the 
intervention is better justified 
as a forcible reminder of risks 
that might otherwise be forgot- 
ten than as compulsory health 
and virtue. 

But no boxer enters the ring 
from absence of mind. And if 

boxers were once unaware of 
the health risks they face there, 
they are now well-educated on 
that score by, among other 
things, the medical precau- 
tions introduced in recent 
years by the British Board of 
Boxing Control These include 
an medical examina- 

tion, skull X-rays and the close 
monitoring of a boxer’s perfor- 
mance in the ring. 

Boxers who pass these medi- 
cal, barriers now enter the ring 
not just voluntarily but also 
aware of the risks. It may seem 
an eccentric decision to most 
people. But a boxer might well 
strike the Faustian bargain of 
fame, glamour and money in 
youth at the risk of shirred 
speech, uncoordinated move- 
ments and serious neuro-phys- 
ical disorders in middle and 
old age. If an adult boxer 
makes such a decision know- 
ingly, that derision should be 
accepted by the rest of us, 
however reluctantly. 

The case against boxing, 
then, foils short of justifying its 
prohibition for adults. But the 
defense of individual liberty 
does not apply to children. 
Society has ampfe justification 
for prohibiting their participa- 
tion in the sport 

In feet it does the reverse. 
Boxing is still taught in some 
schools, though in for fewer 
than twenty years ago. The 
larger cities, in particular Lon- 
don, still boast boxing dubs 
where boys as young as ten 
years old learn the sport under 
the auspices of the Amateur 
Boxin g Association. 

' This early recruitment is, of 

course, essential to the sport’s 
continuation. Almost no one 
would become a boxer in adult 
life if he had not already been 
drawn into the sport as a boy. 
So if total prohibition of 
boxing goes too for, measures 
to halt the recruitment of 
children into it are certainly 
justified. It will come to the 
same thing in the end as the 
supply of boxing recruits grad- 
ually dries up. 

Thus boxing clubs should 
not be allowed to admit boys 
until they have reached drink- 
ing age. The rides of boxing, 
after all, are heavier than those 
of alcoholism — and when the 
risk foils, the consequences are 
considerably more severe. Nor 
should schools be permitted to 
provide boxing lessons. 

These modest prohibitions 
need to be supplemented by a 
more positive application of 
the force of social disapproval 
The Departments of Health' 
and Education should mount 
major public campaigns to 
•warn parents of the nature of 
boxing — and the possible 
consequences of their sons’, 
participation in it Radio, tele- 
vision and the press should 
reflect on whether they give 
the sport more attention than, 
it deserves. Television, indeed, 
yfoich keeps much of boxing 
iflive, must ponder on whether 
it comes into that category of 
programs which deserve the 
late night slot 

Boxing is a sport that repays 
courage with disability of 
mind and body. At the very 
least, a civilised society must 
severely discourage it. 


The' latest American nuclear 
test, which was carried out at 
the weekend despite the self* 
imposed Soviet moratonum, 
has already drawn criticism 
from allies like Denmark and 
New Zealand While the re- 
action of neither Copenhagen 
nor Wellington is a very 
reliable guide on the wisdom 
of defence policies, it illus- 
trates the embarrassment of 
the Western position. To carry 
out nuclear tests when the 
Russians have called for a halt, 
looks very much like being 
against motherhood and apple 

The United States .argues 
that it needs to continue 
testing to ensure the effective- 
ness of its strategic deterrent. 
Britain says that the means of 
verifying a C omprehensive 
Test 'Ban (CTB) are soil inad- 
equate. Both governments 
complain that the Russians 
were able to declare a uni- 
lateral moratorium last year 
because they had recently 
completed their own missile 

modernization program®*. 

There is some truth m alt 
this. Advances in the science 
of high frequency seismic 
analysis have encouraged 
hopes that the reliable identi- 
fication of underground tests 
wifi soon be possible. But by 
no means all are convinced 

and a country determined to 
evade any ban, should still 
have little difficulty in doing 

On the other hand, is it ever 
likely to be otherwise? It might 
be considered naive to suppose 
that a system could be made so 
foolproof that it would entirely 
eliminate the possibility of 
cheating. The real difference 
between those who believe in 
pushing ahead towards A 
CTB T and those who hold 
back. lies m the degree of trust 
which is held to be acceptable. 

As for the timing of the 
Soviet declaration, this reflects 
a historic difficulty over arms 
control. No moment is ever 
the right one for both sides - 
whose weapons vary in type, 
capability and age. The diffi- 
culty of equating like with like 
at any particular time is why 
progress has been so halting 
over the last 14 years. 

- It has become almost a 
truism that successful arms 
control is the product rather 
than the cause of good rela- 
tions. There have been mora- 
toria before, like that between 
1958 and 1961 when it was the 
Soviets-wbo broke it. President 
Eisenhower regarded the fail- 
ure to translate that into a 
permanent treaty as die great 
disappointment of his eight 
years at the White House. But 

to do so would have required 
more mutual trust and politi- 
cal will than was evident at 
that time. And now it is the 
Americans busily testing their 
Midgetman mobile missiles 
for the 1990s, or the British, 
working on a warhead for the 
Trident-2, who are reluctant to 
accommodate Russian offers. 

A total test ban to replace 
the partial one signed in 1963, 
remains a highly desirable 
objective for a variety of 
reasons, not least environ- • 
mental. For one thing it should 
slow down the pace of weapon 
development - whatever the 
advances in the techniques of 
computer simulation. For an- 
other it would go some way to 
appeasing non-nuclear powers 
who, having signed away their 
rights under the Nuclear Non- 
Proliferation Treaty of 1968, 
complain bitterly that the 
“haves” are not keeping to 
their side of the bargain. 

It has been reported that this 
latest American test might 
jeopardize Mr Gorbachov's 
summit visit to the United 
States this year. In fort the 
difficulty of achieving a joint 
moratorium makes it all the 
more essential that he should 
go. While in the United Slates 
he should go to the US nuclear 
test Site in Nevada. 

UK policy on 
arms control 

From the Director of the Stock- 
holm International Peace Re- 
search Institute 

Sir. The British Government’s 
position on a number of current 
arms control issues is most dis- 
appointing. The comprehensive 
test ban issue is a case in point. 
The United Kingdom has joined 
the United States in refusing to 
negotiate. This is in violation of 
the preamble of at least two 
international treaties which the 
United Kingdom has ratified. 

The preamble to the Partial Test 
Ban Treaty, signed by the UK in 
1963, reads (in part): “Seeking to 

Making a case for child hospices 

achieve the discontinuance of all 
test explosions of nuclear weapons 
for all times, determined to con- 
tinue negotiations to this end. . 

The preamble to the Non- 
Proliferation Treaty, signed by the 
UK in 1968. reads: “Recalling the 
determination expressed by the 
parties to the 1963 Treaty. . „ to 
seek to achieve the discontinuance 
of all test explosions for all time 
and to continue negotiations to 
this end. . 

At the Review Conference of the 
Non-Proliferation Treaty in 
September of last year, all delega- 
tions present — with two excep- 
tions. the USA and the UK — 
deplored the feet that a com- 
prehensive test ban treaty had not 
been concluded. 

The United Kingdom rites 
problems of verification as the 
reason for refusing to negotiate. 
This was not the issue on which 
foe tripartite negotiations broke 
down in 1980. In July, 1980. the 
UK made a joint agreed report on 
foe negotations, together with the 
USA and USSR, in which they 

The three negotiating parties believe 
that the verification measures being 
negotiated — particularly the pro- 
visions regarding the international 
exchange of seismic data, the 
committee of experts, and on-site 
inspections — broke significant new 
ground in international arms limita-

tive way in the process of verifying

It has already been agreed that 
there would be tamper-proof 
seismological stations on foe terri- 
tory of foe parties. Since 1980 
there have been substantial ad- 
vances in seismology, with (for 
example) the new Noress system 
(Norwegian Regional Seismic Ar- 
ray System). 

The six nations which are 
parties to foe five-continent, six- 
nation initiative — Sweden, 
Greece, India, Mexico, Tanzania 
and Argentina — have offered to 
help verification with seismologi- 
cal facilities. Jn any case, problems 
of verification are matters for 
negotiation, not reasons for a 
refusal to negotiate. It is very 
difficult to defend the present 
British ppsition on this issue.

Keeping out the cold 

From the Director of the Electricity 
Consumers' Council 
Sir, As foe third reading of the Gas 
Bill reaches the Commons, it is 
important to draw attention to foe 
provisions within foe Bill and 
authorisation for the protection of 
foe consumer’s interest 

When the Rt Hon Peter Walker 
announced the privatisation of gas 
he presented it as good for the 
industry and good Tor foe con- 
sumer. It is on this latter point that 
there is most doubt, and with good 
reason. All gas consumers, and 
specially domestic gas consumers, 
require greater protection than the 
BiU and authorisation presently 

Electricity consumers (whether 
industrial, commercial or domes- 
tic) also have a vested interest in 
ensuring that neither predatory 
pricing nor cross-subsidy unfairly 
distorts the relative prices of both 

As a result of foe decision to 
privatise the British Gas Corpora- 
tion through foe wholesale trans- 
fer of assets to the private sector, 
foe corporation’s monopoly po- 
sition is left virtually intact. The 
Government has chosen against 
natural regulation through free 
competition and instead, will rely 
on a formal regulatory body 
(Ofgas) and a consumer council 
(the Gas -Consumers’ Council) to 
save us from predatory practices 
and declining services. Neither 
organisation is proposed in such a 
form as to be equal to the job. 

U will be a grave position for 
consumers if adequate rights of 
access to information and proper 
opportunities for genuine 
consultation are not provided for 
the consumer council within the 
legislation. There are still opportu- 
nities for amendment to make this 
Bill acceptable to consumers and I 
urge them to be taken. 

We have had one of the coldest 
winters on record and it will not be 
the last. It must provide a timely 
reminder that fuel is an essential 
commodity and that, without it. 
living conditions become intol- 
erable. Hie burden of responsibil- 
ity is wide for foe fuel suppliers. 
They are not jnsl the life blood of 
our industries and of commerce, 
they art foe lifeline for domestic

; March 24. 

From Professor J. D. Baum 
Sir. There can be little doubt that 
the establishment of Helen House 
in Oxford, the first hospice in the 
world specifically for children, was 
a brilliantly imaginative and 
humanitarian development. In- 
deed it has been judged so 
successful that a number of groups 
have considered establishing simi- 
lar children's hospices up and 
down the country, an example 
being Martin House in Yorkshire, 
the building of which is due to 
start this summer. 

It is not well known, however, 
that scientific evaluation of the 
running, efficacy, advantages and 
possible undesirable side effects of 
the work of foe hospice, coupled 
with an assessment of the facilities 
at present available in England 
and Wales for respite or terminal 
care of children, is in hand. This 
research is now into its second 
year and is funded by the Depart- 
ment of Health. 

It is too early to report anything 
of the findings of these studies. It 
is however foe opinion of the 
hospice's research steering 
committee that it is premature to 
clone Helen House. Without wish- 
ing to constrain the com- 
passionate enthusiasm of those 
who wish to establish their own 
local children's hospice, we should 
like to point out that such 
developments at this stage are 

For example, it was guesswork 
that established Helen House as 
having eight children’s beds. Per- 

Tax equality 

From Mr John J. C. Freeman 
Sir, I read with interest on March 
1 5 your account of foe Institute of 
Fiscal Studies claiming that Nigel 
Lawson’s proposals for transfer- 
able tax allowances were “severely 
flawed”. They, like so many 
others, are only capable of 
championing foe causes of the 
privileged to hang on to their 
advantages over foe rest of foe 

With around fonr million un- 
employed there can be no justice 
in giving 2.6 times the single tax 
allowance to two people who are 
married and both working, and 
only 1.6 tax allowance to a 
married couple with only one 
partner working; whilst at the 
same time couples living together 
and both working receive two tax 
allowances, as well as married 
couples who both work and find 

Student benefits 

From Mr S. J. Aheame 
Sir, We must treat students as our 
seedcorn. By contrast, this Gov- 
ernment seems intent on 
pauperising them. Of course h is 
necessary that students dem- 
onstrate responsibility and 
capability. Provided they do so, it 
is in society’s best interest to 
support them adequately during 
their period of full-time education. 
Moonlighting barmen make half- 
baked students. 

Individuals old enough to vote 
or pay tax on what they may earn 
are old enough to be regarded as 
financially independent of their 
parents. All capable students 
should receive foe same adequate, 
rather than generous, support 
from society through the state. 

Students are likely to lose foe 
right to supplementary and un- 
employment benefits in foe short 

Moves to Rome 

From the Reverend R. T. Beckwith 
Sir, Your Religious Adairs 
Correspondent shows less than his 
usual percep liveness in his ac- 
count of the exchange of letters 
between Cardinal Wiilebrands 
and the co-chairmen of the An- 
glican-Roman Catholic Inter- 
national Commission (March 6). 

Cardinal Wiilebrands does not 
in feci offer any change in the 
Church of Rome's negative atti- 
tude to Anglican orders as such, 
but simply to “future (Anglican) 
ordinations.” What he says is that, 
if the new commission brings foe 
ARCIC statements on foe Eu- 
charist and the Ministry into 
complete, and not just partial, 
agreement with Roman teaching 
(i.e. if it effectively repudiates foe 
Reformation), then a new situa- 
tion will be created, in which 
future Anglican ordinations can be

Use of tolls 

From Professor Ray Rees 
Sir. If all we ask of tolls is that they 
raise revenue, then the Commons 
Transport Committee (report, 
March 13) is right, though its 
reasoning is not. 

The objection is not so much 
one of anomalv and illogicality, 
but of cost ineffectiveness — the 
amount collected is not worth the 
costs and bother imposed by its 
collection, and the expenses aris- 
ing out of bridge and tunnel 
operations could as well be met 
out of general road taxation. 

We should, however, be a little 
more imaginative in the use to 
which we pul toils. Many of the 
bridges and tunnels in question 
suffer severe congestion, usually 
for short periods of the day. often 
in one direction at a time. Why 
not therefore abolish tolls at any 
lime and in any direction in which 
congestion is absent, and raise 
them sharply for congested times 
and directions?

haps the facility should have been 
larger or smaller. It was guesswork 
that determined which children 
should be accepted for respite 
care. It was guesswork that estab- 
lished the hospice as an individual 
institution rather than a commu- 
nity-based service led by specially 
trained children's nurses. Our 
research is directed to answer 
these and other questions, such as 
how many such hospices are 

if it appeared, for instance, that 
three such facilities were required 
for the whole of the countty, it; 
would be unfortunate if individual 
charitable initiatives resulted in 
children's hospices clustered in 
the Midlands, leaving foe other 
pans of the country unprovided 

We would urge restraint on 
those who are considering 
establishing a local children’s 
hospice. A new service is no 
different from a new drug; we 
should not unleash it wholesale on 
the community at lane until we 
have defined, by careful research, 
foe therapeutic advantages, side 
effects and indications for foe

there is a tax advantage in being 
taxed separately. 

All adults should have foe same 
tax allowance, regardless of mar- 
ital status and whether or not they 
are working. If only one partner in 
a marriage is working, then their 
partner should be able to use the 
unused allowance, and transfer- 
able allowances are a simple and 
easy way to achieve this. 

What is needed nowadays is an 
incentive for couples with families 
for one partner to stay at home 
and care for their children without 
further burdening society with 
demands for nursery facilities at 
places of work.

Future of boxing 

From Mr Kenneth E. Pottle 
Sir. How many more boxers will 
die. become brain damaged and 
mentally ill before you prim a 
letter condemning boxing as a 
“non-sport”, a “Wood sport” and 
a primitive activity which has not 
a place in a civilised society? 

We condemn bullfighting, dog- 
fighting. cockfighting etc as blood 
sports: why is manfighting tol- 
erated? And why. in our enlight- 
ened age of non-sexual 
discrimination, is womanfighting 
not encouraged along with box- 

Boxing induces in the spectators 
an excitement and neurotic in- 
terest in violence: my opinion is 
that blows to the head, and the 
objective of knocking foe oppo- 
nent out. unconscious on the 
'floor, is a form of violence, and 
not to be compared with foe 
dangers or rough handling asso- 
ciated with other sports. Violence 
is foe vested interest of boxing.

at about 3.30pm on the 24th

the wind suddenly veered to 
eastward and increased to gale 
force, striking the frigate. It sank 
within half an hour. There were 
five survivors, three of whom later 



We have received the following 1 
sad news from the Admiralty:—

of these have since died. J 
Cuddicombe, a first-class boy, and 
Fletcher were saved, and Tabor, 
the first lieutenant, but it is vety ' 
doubtful whether he will recover. 
The military engineer officer was 7 
drowned. The ship was co minis- - 
sinned at Portsmouth on the 7th of 3 
February. 1877. and was ordered to , 
the West Indies. She was now * 
bound for Spithead, and was 
observed passing Ventnor a few , 
minutes before the catastrophe 
with all sail set. A snow storm then 
came on very suddenly with very 
heavy gusts of wind. Probably no 
more men have been saved than 
those picked up by the schooner, as 
a strong ebb tide was running. The 
sun came out brilliantly directly 
after the squall but nothing could 
be seen from the shore at Ventnor

certainly no boats. The schooner

is known, are Benjamin |

Sydney Fletcher, of Bristol, first- . 
class boy. aged 19. Cuddicombe 
states that the ship capsized in a 
squall and snowstorm five miles off 
Dunnose. about 4 o'clock. More 
than 300 men were on board, all of 
whom, he believes, are lost except 
himself and Fletcher. Cuddicombe 
was among the last on the ship. 
Captain Hare was near him when 
the ship went down, sucking many 
with it. Cuddicombe and a man 
near him said that a vessel was 
dose by when foe squall came on. 
and. therefore, they would be sure 
to be picked up. He was over an 
hour in the water. Being a first-rate 
swimmer, every one called out to 
him for help. He tried to assist two 
or three, but at last four clung to 
him. and be was obliged to kick 
them off. Was well taken care of by 
the master of the schooner and 
crew. The ship left Bermuda three 
weeks ago, passed the Lizard 
yesterday, and expected to anchor 
at Spithead about 5 o'clock. 

These two men are well provided 
for at the Cottage Hospital 
Boncburch. and are under the care 
of Dr. Williamson, of Ventnor, who 
considers them to be doing fairly 

The Eurydice was a training- 
ship for ordinary seamen, and is 
officially described as “sixth-rate. 
She was under the command of 
Captain Marcus Hare." Having left 
Bermuda on her return trip as 
recently as the 6th Inst., she was 
not expected to reach Portsmouth 
for some days. Her consorts, the 
Martin and the Liberty, have 
arrived, the former at Portsmouth, 
and the latter at Plymouth. . . 


From Dr P. Hickman 
Sir. Mrs Houghton (March 18) 
and the noble Lord Chesterfield 
are of course, correct: the content 
is more important than the cover 
and I am sufficiently read to know 
that “of making many books there 
is no end; and much study is a 
weariness of ihe flesh” (Ecclesias-

Genes clue to origin of races 

The idea may seem breath- 
taking the 4,000 rnOlion of 
us who inhabit (Us planet, with 
its myriad races, all originated 
from a handful of individuals 
who migrated from Africa. 

Bat powerful evidence hi sap- 
port of die theory has come with 
an exerdse hi genetic detection, 
showing a common denominator 
hmoug people. It involved stud- 
ies into nuioas proteins that 
carry fundamental cbaracteris- 
. tics of individuals and groups. 

Homanldnd almost certainly 
'originated in Africa bat the 
records provided by fossils aie 
too scanty to show how homo 
sapiens spread to other parts of 
tbe world and bow present-day 
races evolved. 

The use of a genetic technique 
*has now established how the 
modem races are interrelated, 
and also that the population 
which originally migrated from 
the African continent was very 
small. At most only a few 
hundred individuals. 

Relationships between dif- 
ferent human populations were 
investigated previously by 
comparing the frequencies of 
proteins that govern such things 
as Mood groups. But many of the 
protein products of genes can be 
coded for by a number of 
different DNA sequences, and 
study of Che variability of tbe 
sequences themselves gives a 
direct and more accurate picture 
of tbe underlying genetic

colleagues at tbe Medical Re-

Haematology Unit m Oxford 
used enzymes to split up the 
gene coding for a blood protein, 
beta-gjobin. which forms part of 
the haemoglobin molecule, into 
five tiny fragments of DNA and 
then compared the variability of 
these fra g me n ts among 600 
people from eight diverse 
populations - British, Cypriots, 
Italians, Indians, Thais, 
■Melanesians, Polynesians, and 

The combination of die five 
DNA sites- could produce 32 
possible different pattens 
(feaptstypes), but only 14 ware 
found, and only, five of these 
were at all common. Moreover, 
of two pattims commonly found 
in Africans, one was very rare in 
other populations and the other 
was absent, and tbe commonest 
baplotype in all (he non-African 
popsiatKwas was rare in tbe 
Africans studied. 

Thus, mankind shows a major 
division between an African and 
a non-African lineage. 

This means that a stogie 
grou p of migrants .from Africa 
gave rise to both Caucasian and 
Mongoloid races, a finding that 
conflicts with the evidence. from 
Mood, groups, which has always 
been interpreted as Indicating a 
primary split between a Mon- 
goloid group, on die one hand, 
and an Afro-Omcasian group, 
on the other.

Character actor of stage 
and screen 

Derek Farr, a character 
actor who had a

he played leading roles in 

films such as f SJ ' 

in the 1950s and had latiem 
been known to younger audi- 
ences through his television 
*vork- u 

He first came to J* : 
the star of pre-war British 

fil ‘Born in Oiiswick, London, 
on February 7, 1 1912. . he^ 
educated ai Oanbrook School 
and was a schoolmaster betore 
be turned to acting 

He made his first stage 
appearance at the Bara Th^ 
aue, Oxted, Sumy, m 1937, 
and his West End debut in 
1939. His first film parts, m 
The Outsider and Spellbound. 
in which he had the lead as a 
young man whose fiancee 
comes back from the dead, 
came soon afterwards. 

His career was- interrupted 
by the Second World War, in 
which he served in the Royal 
Horse Artillery, taking part m 
the North African campaign 
and D-Day landings. 

After demobilisation, he re- 
turned to the stage and for the 
next 25 years he was in steady 
demand in both the. theatre 
and the cinema. 

He was a reliable, ad ap ta b le 
actor, equally at home in 
comedies,, thrillers and 
straight dramas. Among his 
many West End plays were 
Murder Mistaken, Trial and 
Error and Wolfs Clothing and 
'in 19.67 he alternated two 
'.leading parts in the farces. 

Fair in the 1950s 

Vprcuzr in the House and L& 
Sleeping Wives Lie , at the 

Two wars later he took over 
the role of Gilbert JBodiey in 

The tong-running comedy, .'Vo/ 
Xo*- Darling, at the Strand. 

His cinema appearances 
were usually - in supporting 
parts and among his films 
were Quiet Weekend. Reluc- . 
tarn Heroes , The Dam Busters, 
Doctor At Large and Thirty is 
a Dangerous Age, Cynthia. 

He was also much seen on 
television, his credits includ- 
ing popular series such as 
Dixon of Dock Green , Corona- 
tion Street, Crossroads, The 
Duchess of Duke Street. 
Rumpoie ef the Bailey and 

A . respected member of the 
theatrical profession, he 
served for many years on the

Actors Charitable T rust. 

He is survived by bis second 
wife, the actress Muriel 


gests that the- first wave of] 
emigration from Africa took 
place wound 50,060 BC and that 
modem man ms widespread is 
Europe and Asia by 30,000 BC 
It has been argued that the 
relatively sudden emergence of 
any new species or snbsperies. of 
animal over a wide area points h» 
simultaneous evolution of vari- 
ous populations at the frontiers 
of migration. 

That widely separated popula- 
tions should evolve along the 
same lines is, in fact, »«y 
unlikely, and the genetic homo- 
geneity now demonstrated 
among diverse non-African 
populations strongly suggests 
that they shared a common 
centre of origin.- 

Expand big human popula- 
tions arerknowu to have spread 
qniddy in tbe past. Once man 
Teached the American continent, 
12,000 years ago. he reached the 
southern tip of South America, 
within a thousand years. 

If tbe population that orifF 
fatally left Africa bad been large, 
genetic variability among its 
descendants would be expected 
to be mucli tbe same as that seen 
in present-day Africans. 

_ That all uoa- African popula- 
tions have lost tbe predominant 
haplotype of a common gene' 
suggests that tbe founder 
population df non- African man 
was small and iughly inbred. 
This seems to be the only 
plausible explanation for such a 
larae degree of M geuetic drift".

■ Mr Stanley Woortoo. MC, 
Jp, who made a repmaiion as 
a trainer of jockeys as well as 
offocsbs, diedon March 21. at 
ihe age .of 88. 

For more than 30 years 
Epsom’s “Lord of the 
Manor?, be was also regarded 
as the saviour of the race- 
course and training sea. 
1 through his leasing of his own 
holdings on Walton Downs 
• and . associated exerdang 
rights to the Levy Board in 
1970, for a negligible rent. 

< He was horn on June 28, 
1897, of a famous racing 
family which came to this 
country from Sydney. His : 
father set up as a successful 
trainer at Epsbro wbere he 
soon made a reputation as a 
“schoolmaster” for talented; 

. apprentices. 

His skill in this difficult 
field was, howp/er, to be 
surpassed his: soh~ wfio' 
succeeded- him at Treadwell 
House/.- ... . ... - . .. 

Although outshone, in the 
saddle, by his elder -brother 
. Frank who . was champion 
-jockey' in 1 four consecutive 
years from '1909 to 1912, 
Stanley Wootton was an excel- 
lent rider himselC winning a 
Chester Cup as a fledgling in 
49L0. •' 

He wqn the- MUitary Cross 
when serving with the' Royal 
Fusiliers - during the First 

. Among This . first patrons 
when be turned to training in 
1 920 »^re the late Sir Edward 
Hulton and Sir Alfred ButL As 
an owner such horses as 
ftfohoime and Thames Trader 
' brought distinction to his well 
.known cerise, gold sleeves, 
blue cap colours. Among great 
. jockeys who served their time 
with him were Charlie Smirice, 
Ken Geihin, Staff ' Ingham. 
Jackie Sirett, Joe Marshall and 
Peter Ashworth. 

A man of quiet, thoughtful 
charm and shrewd business 
ability, he bought 296 acres on 
Walton Downs in- 1927 and 
leased another 195 acres on 
Epsom Downs. These 
downlands . had traditionally 

been ' associated wiih race- 
hoise training and in 1969 it 
became known that Wootton 
intended to hand over these 
valuable gallops to the 
Horserace Betting Levy Board 
through a ^ year lease at a 
p eppercorn rent:, -• 

At a luncheon held in 
London On Eebroary 9, 1970, 
at which Wootton was the 
guest of honour Lord Wigg 
referred to the 4 *dream that 
has come true for all associat- 
ed with racing...” It was 
perhaps typical of the donor's 
selfless interest that his only 
request should have been one 
for safeguarding the colour 
and glamour of British racing 
and racecourses. 

Atthe end of 1 970 he retired 
from the management of the 
Training Grounds and be- 
came a member of the Epsom 
and Walton Downs Manage- 
ment Board, then -under the 
chairmanship of Lord Wigg. 
In succeeding years, with fi- 
nancial help from the 
Horserace Betting Levy 
Board, many improvements 
were introduced, including an 
all-weather training track 
which was completed in the 
summer of 1976. 

The success of Epsom as a 
racehorse training centre owes 
much to his many years of 
outstanding service in saving 
and preserving the Downs for 
such a use.

The Crucia 

A new era 

in criminal advocacy 

The formation of the Crown 
Prosecution Service represents a major 
change in the judicial system, a change 
designed to ensure consistency of 
criminal administration in the 31 urban 
and regional areas across England and 
Wales. This new service offers exciting 
opportunities for the ambitious lawyer 
to gain invaluable advocacy experience,- 
in a wide range of criminal work. 

The Crown Prosecution Service will 
come into effect in the Metropolitan 
Authorities (except London) on 1 April 
1986. The Crown Prosecutors will 
review charges brought by the police, 
decide whether court proceedings are 
warranted and, if so, normally conduct 
the case for the prosecution. 

With a broad and challenging 
caseload, you will work in an 
environment where your expertise and 
judgment are essential to the operation 
of justice. 

Vacancies are currently available 
in Greater Manchester, Merseyside, 
West Yorkshire, Northumbria, 
Durham, West Midlands and South 
Yorkshire. There are also vacancies 
in Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire, 
including 2 at Senior Crown 
Prosecutor level.

Crown Prosecutor £ 1 3,505-S 1 8,360; as 
Crown Prosecutor £ 1 0,500 -£ 1 5,000. 
Starting salary according to

Against thei etu e m ent in January 1987 of the present 
holder of the office, tee are seeking a new Secretaiy-Goieral as 
senior member of the permanent staff of The Lor Society. 

The overall dkaDenge facing dr omb or Iranian we appoint 
devolves into three main areas:- 

On poficy the Secretary-General wfll act as the Society's 
principal adviser and wiB both ensure the efficient execution of 
agreed policies, and propose and formulate new ones for 
consideration by the Council. 

In management terms, the Secretary-General will establish 
and maintain the machinery whereby every member of the 
Society's staff understands his or her role in a clearly defined 
management" structure, has dear objectives and workable terms 
of reference. 

Representation wiD be one of the most important aspects 
' of the role. An add test of the Secretary-General's effectiveness 
will be the extent to which VSfetminster, Whitehall and the 
media identify with the Society’s aims and interests. The 
Secretary-General wiH not infrequently, be the Society's 
representative in its relationship with the legal and other 
professions in the United Kingdom and the legal professions 

The brief is an open one aDd either solicitors or non- 
solicitors may apply. Our profile of the man or woman we appoint 
is equally so - private practice, the public sector, industry or 
commerce could all yield the right experience. Irrespective of 
background, the new Secretary- General will have to achieve an 
exceptional grasp of both the law and the working of the 
profession in order to become the source of the innovative 
policy initiatives which we seek. 

Communications skills and a strong personal ‘presence 
are essential in someone who will be our advocate in the corridors 
of power, and our representative in the eyes of the world. 

Salary and benefits will confirm that this is indeed an 
appointment of crucial importance to us. But for the right man 
or woman, an equally important motivation will be the 
unparalleled opportunity to make his or her mark both in and on 
the profession. 

Please write with a copy of your cv to the President.

Elders to seek court block 
on commission disclosures 

By Alison Eadie 

Elders JXL, the Australian lion, chairman of 
brewery group, whose 

. . . group whose £1.7 

billion bid for tbe food and 
dr ink g roup AQkd-Lyons was 
referred to the. Monopolies 
and Mergers Commission in 
December, yesterday an- 
nounced that it was going, to 
court to try to prevent the 
commission disclosing confi- 
dential information to AUied- 

Elders said! it hacf been told 
by the chairman of the Mo- 
nopolies Conunisskm, Sir 
Godfrey Le Quesne, that it 
was necessary for the commis- 
sion, in fulmhng its statutory 
duty, to disclose to Allied 
details of Elders's future fi- 
nancing plans and bid tactics. 
Elders has disclosed its plans 
to the commission in confi- 
dence to try to allay fears that 
it does not have proper finan- 
cial backing for its bid. 

The original reference to the 
commission was made not on 
competition grounds but be- 
cause Mr Leon Brittah, who 
was then Secretary of Slate for 
Trade and Industry, said the 
bid's financing "raised issues 
which deserved 

investigation". Mr John El- 


last month he was confident 
be could persuade the com- 
mission.. of the financial 
soundness of the bid. 

Mr Andrew Cummins, 
group director of strategy for 
. Elders, said Sir Godfray be- 
lieved it was a requirement of 
natural justice that Allied 
should understand what. El- 
ders was .intending " to do. 
Allied had based its defence 
on the first tad, which no 
longer existed. Sir Godfrey 
was unavailable for comment 

Mr Cummins said the dis- 
closure of Elders' plans three 
to four months before it could 
re-launch its bid would seri- 
ously jeopardize its chances of 
success. The section of Elders’ 
submission that the commis- 
sion wants to disclose indudes 
Ail) details of how Elders 
intends to formulate and fi- 
nance any renewed bid, sets 
out the effects of such an offer 
at a specified price and ex- 
plains how Elders would refi- 
nance the initial consideration 
on a longer-term basis. 

Elders tried to find a way 
round by suggesting that a 

John EDiotfc secret 
tactics at stake 

merchant banker and the 
Bank of England should sit on 
the commission' and vet the 
' financing airangements. It 
also gave a list of questions to 
the commission to ask of 
Allied and finally offered to 
produce a slimmed down 
version of its plans for Allied 
to see. Although the commis- 
sion took up the first two 
suggestions it still wanted to 
release the lull bid plans to 

MOD contract row flares as 
Swan Hunter revises offer 

By Derek Harris, Industrial Editor 

Amid a developing row over ernment that there would be no get subsidies connected with 
* £240 nJSkn contract for two unfair competition from 
vessels fur the Royal Fleet 
Auxfihuy, the Ministry of 
Defence yesterday delayed a 
planned announcement on the 
placing of -the order as Smut 
Hunter, tbe recently privatized 
Tyneside shipbuilder, dis- 
closed that it had revised Its 
tender offer. 

Swan Hunter, which has 
given wanting that 2,000 jobs 
could be at ask if it -does not 
win the contract, has re- 
tendered “at a price we believe 
is competitive”, said Mr Alex 
Marsh, one of the four Joint 
managing directors at Swan 
Hunter, which , was bought out 
by management two mouths 

The row. has flared up 
between Swan Hunter and the 
State-owned Belfast yard of 
Hariand & Wolff, which had 
been expected in Whitehall to 
get the contract Swan has 
pointed to Hariand VMstory of 
delays and cost over-runs. The 
buyout team were also given a 
written guarantee by the Gov- 


tiouattzed businesses. 

Bid Hariand yesterday rave 
its own jobs warning. Tbe 
company said that the last 
vessel on its order book is due 
for delivery in early 1988 and 
that the auxiliaries contract 
would provide work for 2^00 
of its 5,000 employees for 
three years. 

' If Hariand gets die contract 
its value would spread else- 
where, particularly in Scot- 
land, because a consortium 
would be involved in fulfilling 
the auxiliaries contract The 
other members of the coosor- 
tiran are Yarrow Shipbuilders 

design consultants, both pri- 
vate sector companies operat- 
ing in the Glasgow area, and 
Rural Electronics, which is 
involved fa the ship systems. 

Hariand is confidently 
dahning that in any indepen- 
dent audit' of construction 
costs, the Belfast yard could 
demonstrate “a significantly 
higher competence**. Nor did it 

MOD tenders. It also claims 
to have good industrial rela- 
tions, with only 0.15 per cent 
of man-hours lost in the past 
10 years through disputes, 
which it says is a better record 
than at Swan Hunter. 

• The sale of shares in 
newly privatized Vickers Ship- 
bddW amt Engineering 
(VSEL) to employees and 
residents of Barrow-in-Fnr- 
ness and Birkenhead dosed 
yesterday with every sign of 
having been oversubscribed. 

Lloyds Merchant Bank, ad- 
ministering the sale, would say 
only that it was “very pleased” 
with the results and that it 
would make a full statement 
on Wednesday. Yesterday the 
company was inundated with 
last-mlnnte applications. 

Vickers, which is to build 
Trident submarines, was sold 
as a package with CammeU 
Laird by British Shipbuilders 
to a. management-led consor- 
tium. A total of 6.95 million of 
the 35 million £1 onfinary 
shares shares were on offer.

Addison Page and 
Chetwynd Streets, two .of 
Britain's leading advertising 
and public relations groups, 
yesterday announced a sur- 
prise £60 million merger. 

The combined .group, in 
which Addison Page will 
emerge as the dominant part- 
ner, will have* profits of £4.4 
million, a turnover of £57 
million and a client list repre- 
senting most of Britain's blue 
chip companies. 

Under the terms of the deal 
which amount to a reverse 
takeover, the much smaller, 
but folly listed Chetwynd 
Streets is offering nine of its 
own shares for every five 
Addison Page, currently 
quoted on the Unlisted Securi- 
ties Market. 

On the news, Addisons 
shares jumped 25p to 275p, 
while ChetwyritTs rose by lOp 
to I33p. 

Mr Julian Broad, Chetwynd 
Streets' chairman, who will 
head the board of the new 
company — to be known for 
the time being as Addison

BT and Du Pont 
in joint venture 

By Teresa Poole 

• British Telecom is forming closed but “significant” sum is 

a joint venture with Du Pont, 
the international chemicals 
company, to commercially ex- 
ploit its expertise in optical 
fibre technology. 

BT&D Technologies will be 
equally owned by the two 
companies and will develop, 
manufacture and market the 
transmitters and receivers 
used in optical fibre 

British Triecom will supply 
the technology, developed at 
its laboratories at Martlesham 
in Suffolk, with Du Pont 
providing the worldwide mar- 
keting network. An undis- 

being invested by both 

f the 

components is planned to 
start early next year at a plant 
in Ipswich which will employ 
about 150 people. 

So for tbe components have 
been produced only in small 
quantities in British 
Telecom’s laboratories. The 
joint venture is part of the 
increased commercialization 
of Martlesham since British 
Telecom's privatization. 

BT&D is aiming for a 
substantial share of a world- 
wide market which is worth 
about £350 million a year 

Grampian profits leap 

By Our City Staff 

Grampian Holdings, the order books in sporting goods 
Scottish holding company 
with interests in transport, 
clothes retailing, sporting 
goods and animal medicines, 
produced better-than-expect- 
ed pretax profits of £3.4 
million in 1985 against £1.7 
million in 1984. Tbe shares 
bounced 22p to a record 243p 
before easing back to 238p. 

All divisions were strongly 
ahead, with operating profits 
in transport doubling as tbe 
division recovered from the 
miners' strike. Retail profits 
were 57 per cent higher and 
made up 40 per cent of the 

This year should benefit 
from the contribution of 
Penfold Golf bought last De- 
cember, and from, buoyant 

and medicines. 

Further acquisitions of 
sporting brands are likely and 
retail is expected to expand its 
outlets. Grampian continues 
to talk to Burton Group about 
possible in-store concessions 
for its Gleneagles womens- 

Tbe company has a target of 
20 per cent organic growth, 
which implies pretax profits of 
at least £4 million. Without 
acquisitions, gearing would be 
reduced to ml through posi- 
tive cash flow, compared with 
16 per cent al the end of 1 985.

Banking Correspondent 

Two planned mergers of 
discount houses with financial 
services companies before the 
big bang in October were 
thrown into doubt yesterday 
by a development which took 
the sector by surprise on the 
slock market. 

Tbe board of Smith Si 
Aubyn announced that it had 
received a rival offer to that 
put forward two weeks ago by 
Irving International Financ- 
ing Corporation. It has ad- 
vised shareholders to delay 
any derision on the Irving 
terms until details of the new 
offer have been announced, 
probably today. 

At the same time Clive 
Discount, which last week 
announced an agreement for a 
full takeover by Bache Group 
International, the United 
States securities house, an- 
nounced that Mr Robert Max- 
well, the publisher, had 
purchased a 14 per cent stake 
in the company. 

Mr Maxwell bought the 
shares late last week after the 
announcement of Bacbe's 
plans to buy an 80 per cent 
stake in Clive. 

Mr Maxwell's motives were 
uncertain yesterday. One ex- 
planation favoured by experts 
in the City was that he hoped 
to push up the value of the 
Bache offer for Give. 

When Bache first bought a 
stake in Clive last year it also 
took an option to buy up to 33 
.percent of the company at 57p 
a share — a premium of 50 per 
cent over the existing share 
price. The new terms an- 
nounced last week retain the 
50 percent premium but value 
the shares at SOp each, giving a 
total cash value of£12 million. 

The board of Smith St 
Aubyn would not disclose the 
identity of ihe new bidder 
yesterday but Mr Len Alien, a 
director, said: “It surprises as 
that the bidder has waited for 
so long. It is one of the 
organizations we have held 
talks with over the last nine 
months before agreeing to the 
link with Irving 

He added: “In order to do 
the best for our shareholders 
we must recommend that they 
.wait to see tile new offer 
because it is worth that much 

• Irving's offer values tbe 
discount house at a maximum 
of 47. 5p a share. The accep- 
tance date is April 1. 

Vinten release

Bell withdraws BHP offer 

. Melbourne (Renter) — Mr 
Robert Holmes a Court, the 
chairman of Befl Resources, 
has declared that he still 
wants control of Broken Hill 
Proprietary, which has annual 
sales of Ans S8 billion (£38 
bilfion), despite withdrawing 
his takeover bid yesterday. 

He said: “1 don’t think there 
is any prospect at all of as ever 
Erring up." 

Stockbrokers' analysts be- 
lieve that the move was anoth- 
er tactical sidestep by Mr 
Holmes a Court, who had so 
for outfoxed BHP in every 
attempt it has made to block 

While yesterday’s with- 
drawal could be seen as a 
minor victory for BHP in that 
it had thwarted the current 

bid, it could also gave Mr 
Holmes 4 Court the chance to 
revise the bid — possibly 
downward — and resubmit It 
even more aggressively. 

One analyst said: “If he 
comes back with another offer, 
he's going to be in a much 
stronger position for the whole 
thing to go ahead.” 

Mr Holmes 4 Court had the 
support of many in the media 
and investment industries and 
would have had a high chance 
of success had his latest bid 
not been held up by coart 

In any new offer, Mr 
Holmes a Court would have 
the advantage of knowing 
much of BMP's defence strate- 
gy and the knowledge that its 
current share price of Ans 

S6£2 dollars b well below his 

* But be still faces a possible 
investigation by Australian 
corporate authorities, who 
said they would be assessing 
Us withdrawal to see if it 
breached takeover rales. Com- 
menting briefly on his with- 
drawal, he said legal action 
had delayed the bid being 
presented to BHP*s 180,000 

He said: “The (act of the 
matter is ~ they (BHP) may 
win, they may lose, but the 
bottom line Is (that) there is a 
guaranteed extensive delay, 
preventing a bid getting into 
the hands of shareholders.” 

Meanwhile, BHP said it 
could seek permanent injunc- 
tions to prevent Bell making 
any farther takeover bids. 

Elders said it was trying to 
resolve a point of principle 
and was not trying to get into a 
fight with ihe commission. It 
said it was unprecedented in 
any leading financial centre in 
the world that a prospective 
bidder should be required to 
disclose his plans to the target 
company several months in 
advance. Ft also said disclo- 
sure by the commission to the 
other side was unprecedented. 

Only 10 days ago Elders 
surprised the City by placing 
its entire 6 per cent holding in 
Atiicd-Lyons on the market to 
make a’ gross profit of £40 
million. Elders made it clear 
that it intended to rebid, but 
said it placed ihe stake to take 
advantage of Allied's high 
share price. 

Mr Elliott declared at the 
time that a bid made in 
current market conditions 
would not be successful except 
at an unrealistic price. Allied's 
share price eased 8p yesterday 
to 328p and Elders' dosed 5p 
lower at J68p. 

Elders first bid for Allied 
was made at 255p a share.

Opec puts paid to the 
cheap money mob 

The Organization of Petroleum 
Exporting Countries finally suc- 
ceeded in getting at Nigel Lawson, 
but about six days too late. The 
postponement of the Opec min- 
isterial meeting until April 15, by 
coincidence the day before the 
Chancellor's promised major speech 
on monetary policy, has put a 
damper on short-term hopes of lower 
base rates. 

The Bank of England, having held 
back a baying mob of cheap money 
men at the end of last week, now 
looks secure with 1 1.5 per cent base 
rates at least until the Easter break, 
and probably until the provisional 
March money supply numbers on 
April 9. 

The markets, having worked them- 
selves up into a state of excitement 
over the prospect of another rate cut 
this week, did not hide their dis- 
appointment. The Opec non-agree- 
ment was reflected first in sterling's 
performance and then in higher 
money market interest rates. 

The pound, down against a strong 
dollar but holding up well — and 
unusually with all the oil uncertainty 
— against the West German mark, 
was unchanged at 75.9 on the sterling 
index. Money market rates finned by 
^i6 points, to just below 1 1.5 per cent 
for three-month interbank, and 
somewhat nearer to 1 1.75 per cent for 
one-month. There is nothing there to 
suggest an early rate cut. 

Gilts lost some of last week’s strong 
gains, ending down by about a point 
at the long end and, for the first time 
in many a day, the market was 
beginning to look tired and lack- 
lustre. Two of Friday’s taplets were 
snapped up quite promptly but even 
this failed to lift flagging spirits. 

The end of the Budget honeymoon 
was also evident in the equity market, 
with the FT 30-share index dropping 
back through 1400 at a speed 
suggesting that all the talk of the new 
improved outlook for the British 
economy after oil, personal equity 
plans and the rest, has been forgotten. 
The ascent from 1300 to 1400 was 
accomplished in less than a fortnight. 
The climb to 1500 is going to take a . 
bit longer. 

Barclays coup 

Tbe emerging financial conglom- 
erate. Barclays de Zoete Wedd. has 
pulled off one of its biggest recruit- 
ment coups; yesterday it revealed 
that it had attracted John Padovan 
into the fold. The plan is for Mr 
Padovan to head the coporate finance 
department at Baclays Merchant 
Bank and to take over control of the 
whole of BZW's corporate finance 
activities when the departments of 
BMB and de Zoete are merged at 

some undetermined point in the 

Mr Padovan's value as a corporate 
finance expert is widely acknowl- 
edged. In City circles he is accorded 
much of the credit for building up 
County Bank's impressive client list 
in ihe 15 years he was there as 
director, chief executive and finally 
chairman. The breadth of his con- 
tacts is well well known and as a man 
who already has long experience of 
working within a merchant bank 
which is only part of a much larger 
organisation he must have seemed an 
ideal candidate to the Barclays 

This is. however, the second time 
in less than two years that Mr 
Padovan has surprised the City with 
a sudden change of job. His sudden 
decision to leave County Bank 18 
months ago still remains something 
of a mystery, though there appears to 
"have been growing friction with the 
top management of National West- 
minster who may have been reluctant 
to give Mr Padovan the recognition 
within the organisation that he felt he 

The biggest loser in his current 
move is likely to be Hambros where 
he went from County as deputy 
chairman. Hambros was visibly de- 
lighted at his arrival, treating it "as an 
endorsement of the quality of the 
bank. Mr Padovan’s rapid departure 
may be a consequence of not having 
liked what he saw at Hambro from 
close quarters. The bank is somewhat 
rudderless at present, at one moment 
announcing a strong policy of mov- 
ing into the retail financial services 
market, the next moment announc- 
ing a major change in ownership 
structure as half the family pulled out 
of ihe bank. Mr Padovan's impact on 
Hambros has not been visible over 
the last year and a half — but that is 
perhaps not long enough for any 
concrete results to show through. 

Another explanation for his rapid 
moves may simply be that he 
anticipated the City revolution too 
soon and felt that he was not best 
placed as the shape of things to come 
became dearer. At BZW his task will 
be to build up a strong UK. and 
international corporate finance busi- 
ness from the relatively small founda- 
tions at BMB and de Zoete. BZW is 
clearly taking a characteristically 
agressive appraoch to coporate fi- 
nance business and the recruitment 
of further senior people as part of this 
move must be expected. 

Mr Padovan refutes the charge that 
he is simply a bird of passage staying 
nowhere long by pointing to his years 
at County Bank. Continuity is also 
being maintained by his involvement 
in Imperial Group's defence. Conve- 
niently. while Hambros are merchant 
bank advisers to Imperial Group, de 
Zoete are the company's brokers.

Nobody can be too surprised 
that Sovereign Oil and Gas 
will not to pay a dividend this 
year. ■ 

At the rights issue in 
October 1984, the directors 
declared their intention to 
pay a dividend for 1985, 
beginning with an interim at 
the half-year stage. No inter- 
im was paid and, h was 
■ announced yesterday, there 

• will be no final either. 

Even with oil at under £10 
per barrel Sovereign's 1986 
oil production will be roughly 
equal to last year’s. Cash- 
flows^ howeverare likely to 
; be more than halved. 

• With the rest of the inde- 
pendent oil sector. Sovereign 
will scale down its explora- 
tion programme, only to find 
that it is cutting off its hose to 
spite its face' This is because 
it has three of a five-year 
contract still to. run on the 
Sovereign Explorer, a third- 
generation semi-submersible 
drilling ri& This is designed 
for the deep and difficult 
waters of the northern North 
Sea, where Sovereign has 
extensive acreage. 

It had intended to use the 
rig largely for hs own opera- 
tions, but Sovereign can ill 
afford to look for oil in 
difficult places, especially as 
the discoveries wifi be un- 
commercial until the oil price 
recovers' significantly. 

The next well to be spud- 
ded when the weather im- 
proves is likely to be a 
Sovereign well, probably a 
form-in. Thereafter, there are 
ho fixed commitments. The 
company can negotiate a 
much lower stacking rate if 
the rig is unemployed, but it 
can. do without the cash 

The squeeze on Sovereign's 
profits will- be mitigated by 
the arrangement with Mara- 
thon Over the financing of 
Brae. Only 60 per cent of 
cash-flows from Brae needs 
to be used to make interest 
and principal payments. If 
there & insufficient cash-flow 
to pay the interest, ft is rolled 
up. into the loan.. 

- While the Brae project 
looks secure, the rest of 
. Sovereign's interests are in a 
very different position. The 
; balance of its production 

* comes from units in the 
‘ Forties and Claymore fields. 

These were bought with a 
combination of cash from the 
rights issue and limited re- 


course loans when the oil 
price was more than twice hs 
present level 


Three years ago an unwanted 
bid from Hepworth Ceramic 
Holdings galvanised Steetley 
into a re-orientation which 
has pushed up its profits from 
less than £20 minion in 1982 
to last year’s £36.8 million — 

. and that despite the tail-end 
of the miners’ strike which 
took about £1 million off the 
1985 figures. . 

. Construction materials 
now account for approaching 
60 per cent of profits, capital 
investment has been high 
over the past two years and 
net debt is down to 15 per' 
cent of shareholders' funds. 

After a sluggish first-half, 
due' to bad weather, profits 
moved ahead by 20 per cent 
in the rest of the year and the 
British operations more than 
made up. the ground lost at 
half-time. The British brick 
market declined by about 4.5 
per cent, but Steetley chums 
to have, slightly increased its 
market share. 

Indeed, the £12.5 miftion 
Parkhouse factory was com- 
missioned and is running at 
. full capacity. Its new range of 
high-margin, “designer” 
bucks will be launched next 
month and the plant’s effi- 
ciency is such that Steetley 
should be well placed in a 
fiiture foil in demand. 

In North America, the 
rationalization at the Canadi- 
an . distribution business 
brought a £2 million, 
turnround into profit and 
further growth, should come 
through this year now that 
the number of branches has 
declined from 57 to 42. 

Last year’s, figures were 
also helped by more than £1 
million off the interest charge 
and a £1 million increase 
from the property company. 
Against this, the 3 per cent 
drop in turnover was more 
than accounted for by the 
Australian operations which 
were disposed of in 1984 - 
when they also contributed 
almost £1 million of profits. 

Steetley is now in a mood 
for father expansion and after 
several small purchases last 
year, particularly three quar- 
ries in France, the company is 
keen to flex its acquisitive 
muscles again. 

Yesterday's figures - aceu- 




Silver lining amid the gloom 

ratety anticipated by the City 
- left the shares 6p lower at 
460p. ai which they are 
selling at 12 times prospec- 
tive earnings, assuming prof- 
its of £43 million this year. 
This is comfortably lower 
than the likes of Tarmac and 
Redland and bid possibilities 
are in for nothing. 


Freemans, the mail order 
house, is doing its best to hold 
on to its newly acquired 
.reputation for growth. Share- 
holders, who nave seen their 
shares rise from 280p to 41 4p 
in just six months, may be 
tempted to lake profits, but 
there is no hurry. 

Yesterday the company an- 
nounced a 27 per cent in- 
crease in profits to £28 
million before tax. That dis- 
guises a second-half slow- 
down, but the new level of 
increase, should be sustain- 
able. While retail sales rose 
by 8.8 per cent last year, mail 
order sales increased by 10.6 
per cent, with Freemans lift- 
ing its share of the market to 
13.9 per cent 

Freemans has taken busi- 
ness from its rivals by pro- 
ducing new and more 
specialized catalogues. To- 
gether, a 50 per cent-owned 
associate which trades 
through concessions in shops 
as well as through its own 
catalogue, was extremely suc- 
cessful, contributing £1.29 
million in its first year. This 
year’s new product is Bymail, 
a fashion catalogue, for which 
the company has high hopes. 
There are plans for a third 
outlet next year. 

This . should keep the mo- 
mentum going, though much 
depends on the pattern of 
consumer spending this year. 
Below the (me, there will 
a gain be help from a lower tax 
charge, though not on the 
scale of last year, when it 
benefited from a favourable 
settlement of a case againt the 
Inland Revenue. Profits after 
tax rose by 45.6 per cent 

That increase is unlikely to 
be repeated this year, so there 
is no reason to expect the 
shares to outperform by last 
year’s margin of 60 per cent 
They are selling on nearly 14 
times prospective earnings, 
which is roughly in line with 
the other mad order compa- 
nies and is not over-ambi- 

The 35-poim setback on 
Wall Street on Friday at the 
adjournment of the Organiza- 
tion of Petroleum Exporting 
Countries talks without specif- 
ic agreement provided reason 
enough for widespread profit- 
taking yesterday. 

Most dealers were happy to 
see what they regarded as a 
healthy correction to the non- 
stop advance in share prices. 
But the mood was not all 
gloom as illustrated by pock- 
ets of interest generated by 
trading statements, press lips 
and takeover developments. 

Gilts also resisted the trend 
with gains of a quarter sup- 
ported by sterling's relatively 
steady performance against 
continental currencies. The 
Government Broker was able 
to sell out a tapiei issued only 
on Friday. 

The FT-30 index tumbled 
no fewer than 17.6 points to 
closest 1394.6 while the more 
broadly based FT-SE 100 fell 
even further — 24.4. points - 
to closest 1663.9. 

Oils were predictably flat on 
the outcome of the Opec 
discussions. BP lost 17p to 
553p while Lasmo dipped 12p 
to 12Sp ahead of today's

The . banking supervisory 
machinery m most mdustriaj- 
ized countries is grinding into 
top gear to deal with a 
problem that only relatively 
can claim to under- 

The problem is that of “off- 
balance sheet risk”: how to 
regulate it and how to evaluate 
the dangers it throws up- in 

Comparison with o rdinar y 

banking business. 

The arcane nature of much 
off-balance sheet risk makes 
the problem of supervision all 

Sliding deeper 
of international 
. debt crisis .. 

the more complex, but this is 
no mere sideshow in the 
mainstream of banking busi- 
ness. Off-balance sheet risk of 
one son or another has risen 
sharply in importance over 
die past three years. 

No reliable figures exist for 
the . City or anywhere else to 
show exactly how big the 
business has become. Indeed 

banks are keeping more 
off their balance sheets 

By Richard Thomson, Banking Correspondent 

the lack of gtandar diTed infor- 
mation is one of the chief 
problems the Bank of England 
is setting out to tackle. 

But it' is clear that many 
banks, large and small, have 
taken on commitments worth 
hundreds of millions of 
pounds which have so for 
slipped through the super- 
visors’ net. 

Off-balance sheet risk 
comes in many forms but, in 
general, h. involves taking on a 
commitment rather than mak- 
ing a direct; loan. The bank 
earns -fee income, from its 
clients for taking on the 
commitment, " rather - than 
canting interest as it would 
from a conventional Iran. 

... The transaction does not, 
therefore, appear on the 
bank's balance sheet, but there 
is undeniably a risk. 

The main reasons for the 
sudden popularity of this busi- 
ness lie in the base change in- 
banking over the past few 
years. As banks slid deeper 
into the bog of the internation- 
al debt crises in the early 
1980s, their credit ratings - 

slipped and diems began to 
shy away from them. 

At the same time the trend 
towards securitization of debt 
offered a neat way for corpo- 
rate customers to bypass bank 
lending. The only way for 
banks to keep some of the 
business was to stand in as 
intermediaries, arranging 
deals between principals rath- 
er than acting directly as 
lender or borrower. 

Many banks may 
not understand 
the nature and 
size of the risks 

Bankers have exercised 
their ingenuity in finding in- 
creasingly sophisticated ways 
of doing this, but supervisors 
are worried that many banks 
do not folly understand the 
nature and size of the risks 
they are taking. 

Take a standby arrange- 
ment, for example. Most note 

issuance fadlities involve pa- 
per being issued by a commer- 
cial borrower and a guarantee 
by the bank arranging the deal 
to provide funds if the liquid- 
ity of the paper market dries 

How often banks win be 
called on to honour these 
commitments is not known, 
but the Bank believes that the 
risk is greater thanl say. with a 
traditional overdraft. 

It remains to be seen what 
risk-asset weightings the su- 
pervisors produce to put be- 
side the weightings laid down 
for conventional banking 

It is possible that they will 
vary from country to country, 
giving the banks of some 
countries a competitive ad- 
vantage, although banking su- 
pervisors from the Group of 
Ten industrialized countries 
committed themselves in the 
recent Basle Committee re- 
port to a policy of minimizing 

Whatever the outcome, it 
will be an important addition 
to the structure of banking 
supervision in all Western

Sir Robert Clark, Chairman, reports on an 
encouraging yean 

“Our sales, pre-tax profits, return on assets and 
earnings per share are all records for the Company. 

“Margins, at the pre-tax stage, were up overall from 
4.7 per cent in 1983 and 6J. per cent in 1984 to 7.5 per cent 

“Of our total sales, 52.6 per cent were made in the 
UK, 16.1 per cent by export from the UK and 31.3 per 
cent from overseas manufacture. 

“We achieved the greatest improvement in refined 
and wrought metals, and two activities were primarily 
responsible: IMI Refiners and titanium, where turnover 
and product mix benefited from a substantial uplift in 
aerospace demand which seems set to continue for at 
least two or three years. 

“In fluid power we made further progress on the 
excellent performance reported in 1984. Our general 
engineering and building products activities also did 
significantly better, as did heat exchange. 

“In special-purpose valves our advance was more 
modest, but we were encouraged by some upturn 
towards the year-end. Only in drinks dispense were we 
unable quite to match last year’s record figures, but the 
outcome was by no means unsatisfactory, and our 
confidence of future profits growth from this sector 
remains high. 


means more than metal 

“Our employees throughout the world have put a 
great deal of effective and dedicated work into 
achievement of these figures, and I express the Boards 
gratitude to them all. 

“The current year has started well in most of our 
business areas, and I am confident of our ability to 
build further on our recent success.”

sugar price 

Bar fees case a 

“Anticipation", the wise 
man said, "is enough to keep 
ihe market brewing lightly." 
Although it was not tea he had 
in mmd the metaphor was 
more or less apt because we 
were talking about sugar. 
Since the beginning of the year 
sugar prices have risen by 
more than two cents to all of 
7.5 cents a pound. 

It sounds modest enough. 
But by the sugar market's 
recent standards it is cause for 
celebration. The idea is firmly 
abroad that the long slump is 
o\er and sugar prices are on 
the w ay up. 

Three categories of argu- 
ment support this. They di- 
vide happily into past, present 
and future - perhaps better 
classified as wisdom after the 
event half knowledge, and 
faith. But since all are com- 
mon to commodity market 
analy sis they must be accepted 
as part of the real world. 

The argument derived from 
the past is the crop cycle. 

Sugar cycles are believed to 
run o\er$ix vears from trough 
to peak. The last two bull 
markets conveniently reached 
their climax in 1974 and 1980. 

Perhaps we should not turn 
the precise number of years 
into a fetish, but the logic is 
reasonable. Expanding or re- 
ducing the volume of any crop 
takes time, including the real-, 
ization by farmers, refiners, 
governments, traders and con- 
sumers that prices are too high 
or loo low for their particular 

Bv way of a diversion, one 
might speculate about the 
same phenomenon tn other 
farm commodities. Wheat is 
cheap, cocoa is middling, and 
coffee expensive. These very- 
different foods do not neces- 
sarily have the same cycle, or 
course. But the Tact that their 
prices are rising, could nse 
won or are not bad suddenly 
makes the gloomy talk of all 
those bear markets a little less 
depressing. Perhaps the next 

couple of years will noi be so 
grim for primary producers 
after all. 

Anyway, back to sugar. 
Within the six-year cycle even 
longer term trends are evi- 
dent. Consumption in devel- 
oped countries is static or 

falling, partly becaLise ° f slow 
population growth, but also 
because or taste and price 
changes which have favoured 
cither ariifical sweeteners or 
fewer sweeteners altogeuier. 

Consumption in developing 
countries has been restrained 
bv the slump and until recent- 
ly by the strong dollar, it is 
noticeable that the increase in 
consumption over ihe past I j

a modest one million tonnes 
and stocks of 39 million 
tonnes will still represent 40 
per cent of annual 

consumption. . 

The stocks seem high, but 
analysts are always a little 
sceptical' about their^ own 
stock figures. The initial re- 
ports on which the statistics 
are based are unreliable 3nd 
some of the stored sugar may 
not be suitable for 
consumption. , 

The key here is production. 
The long-term factor is the 
slow adjustment of output to 
low prices. Nobody can make 
money from sugar at less than 
12-14 cents a pound- and even 
then only the very cheapest 
would survive — for example, 
some parts of Brazil. At the 
less than 3 cents prevailing 
last year - probably the lowest 
real prices ever - it was 
inevitable that farmers would 
start to grow less sugar. Pro- 
duction is likely to be lower m 
Cuba, the Dominican Repul> 
lie. Brazil, Argentina, the Phil- 
ippines and South Africa. _ 

In some instances special 
forces are at work. A combina- 
tion of drought and Hurriance 
bCate cut the Cuban crop from 
eight million tonnes to be- 
tween six and seven million. 
Cuba will have to find on the 
open market the difference 
which it is committed to sell to 
customers, and that is an 
important source of the antici- 
pation in the trade. 

But such accidents always 
happen, and not all are acci- 
: dents. Even the acreage sown 

m the European Community 
is forecast to fall by 2-3 per 
cent as the less generous sugar 
regime begins to change 
fanners’ views about the prol- 
i lability of the market. Gov- 
ernments simply cannot 
continue to protect their na- 
tional sugar industries indefi- 
nitely when production costs 
are a sizeable multiple of 
freely traded prices. 

The process, however, tS 
only just beginning. One ana- 
lyst said: “Real structural 
change is not yet with us”. Yel 
the anticipation, of such 
change is encouraging the 
market A price of 8 or 9 cents 
is conceivable if towards the 
end of the year the 1986-87 
statistics also look favourable. 

Enter faith. Will producers 
continue to cut back? Have 
governments really learned 
the lesson? Will better prices 
only generate new produc- 
tion? In short, could this cycle, 
starting from so humble a 
base, be aborted? 

One must fear that all of 
these things are possible. The 
best hope is that production 
costs go on rising, and that a 
weaker dollar will mean lower 
local currency earnings. 

After all 8 cents is still very 
cheap - which itself is encour- 
aging speculation by investors 
and commission houses — and 
real returns on capital em- 
ployed in the industry are 
elusive in many parts of the 
world. If farmers do indeed 
manage to restrain themselves 
ihe light brew could come to 
an all-out boil

in US pact 

The computer industry is preparing 
itself to shoulder much of rhe costs 
which are expected to accrue from the 
worldwide rise in the price of 
microchips. The anticipated escalation 
in price win result from an agreement 
which last week was in the final stages of 
being struck between the American 
suppliers of semiconductors and their 
Japanese equivalents. 

That agreement steins from the 
Americans' obsession with cheap Japa- 
nese imports and the Japanese attempt 
to cater to the US paranoia in the event 
that the alternative would be 

The irony is that the effects of this, the 
"semiconductor accord" will be felt as 
much by the US computer and electron- 
ics industries as by the Japanese. 

The war between the US and Japan 
over semiconductors is almost 10 years 
old and the US chip makers have 
lobbied hard in the last year to ensure 
government support in their attempt to 
exert pressure on the Japanese. Japan, 
the manufacturers claim, have been 
dumping microchips on the US market 
by selling them at less than 1 cost Two 
weeks ago the US companies had their 
first significant victory with the Com- 
merce Department imposing a duty on 
memory microchips imported from 
Japan. That duty ranged from 20 to 200 

The manufacturers have been seeking 
a better Jong-term solution than the 
imposition of duties, particularly one 
which will give the industry more 
stability. The fierce price war in 
microchips during the last two years, 
precipitated by overproduction of com- 
ponents because anticipated growth in 
the computer market was never 
realised, scared the semiconductor 

Many of the principal suppliers 

suffered a substantia! drop in sales, had 
to cut their production, lay off workers 
and dose factories. Such unpleasantries 
have made the semiconductor manufac- 
turers very nervous. 

The spiral continued with the com- 
puter suppliers savagely cutting prices 
both in Europe and the US in an 
attempt to keep market share. Conse- 
quently the component suppliers were 
under more pressure to cut prices 

The stakes are high. Between them 
the US and Japanese manufacturers 
supply more than 90 per cent of the 
world microchips. Texas Instruments. 
Motorola, National Semiconductorand 
Intel are in the top 10 and do battle with

NEC, Hitachi, Toshiba and Fujitsu. The 
only European in the same class is 

Dr Robert Noyce, the pioneer of 
microchip design and vice- 
chairman/co-founder of Intel, has been 
fighting for a decade allegedly unfair 
Japanese practices in the US and his 
views epitomise the fears of the US 
microchip industry. In a recent pub- 
lished interview he said; “We’ve been 
working on this problem since 
l977„.We have spent a disproportion- 
ate amount of time and treasure trying 
to figure out how to ward off a trade war 
with Japan while preserving our 

Dr Noyce and many other industrial- 
ists consider the protection of the home 
semiconductor market as vital to the US 

But the effect that such an agreement 

will have on the economy may not be 
the one they seek. The agreement would 
undoubtedly seek to try and provide a 
method by which US microchips can 
penetrate the closed Japanese market. 
The Americans would seek to benefit 
through such an agreement by having 
their components in the many Japanese 
products invading the US and European 

The reality is likely to be quite 
different. A similar deal was struck 
about three to tour years ago between 
the Japanese and the Americans on 
telecommunications equipment supply. 
That deal, applauded by many on both 
sides of the Pacific as revolutionaiy, was 
not worth the paper on which it was 

The Americans also have to attract 
Japanese companies to trade. The 
Japanese very rarely buy non-Japanese 
products and invariably only do when 
there is no Japanese equivalent. Sadly 
the only way for the Americans or any 
other nation to fight such attitudes 
effectively is to convince their home 
markets to behave similarly. 

But the biggest danger to the Ameri- 
can economy may be posed not by the 
supposed Japanese dumping but 
through the pact formed with the 
Japanese. The Americans have long 
prided themselves on a free market 
economy. The US-Japan agreement 
could siifie such new businesses by 
ensuring that only the big boys who are 
members of the dub and can play the 
microchip manufacturing game. 

With linle difficulty one might de- 
scribe such an agreement as the founda- 
tions of a carteL No doubt there'll be 
someone from the computer world who 
might see it that way and uphold 
another American tradition — test it in 
court. Beware microchip suppliers, the 
new dangers may be worse than the old. 

Softclone keeps 
individual touch 

British micro makers, while 
increasingly bowing to the 
IBM PCs standard, are using 
a novel technique that re- 
moves the need for the slavish 
imitation this normally en- 
tails. writes David Guest. 

The method that they hope 
will allow them to preserve 
their individuality is called 
Softdone. It made its first 
appearance when Apricot 
launched the Xen microcom- 
puier in the US last 

In operation Softclone is 
like an adaptor that you fit 
between the plug and the 
socket to make an electrical 
appliance work in a foreign 

Programs written for the PC 
can be “softcloued" to run on 
other systems, but any fea- 
tures that make the host 
computer superior to an IBM 
PC are not compromised in 
the process. 

It works by budding up a 
map of the points at which a 
program interacts with a PC — 
where it accepts data from the 
keyboard, where it puts char- 
acters out to the screen, or 
accesses a disk. 

For a company that wants 
to make the most popular 
programs available for its 
machine, it is a relatively 
cheap and quick alternative to 
asking software firms such as 
Lotus. Ashton-Tate or others 

for a customised version of 
their software. 

Softclone was devised by a 
US company. Control C Soft- 
ware. but in a sense it's a 
product of the brain drain. 
The founder of Control C, 
Andy Johnson-Laird, is a 
Briton who was once turned 
down for a job by ICL. 
Conirol C now assists ICL in 
implementing its microcom- 
puter operating systems. 

Digital Research is examin- 
ing the possibility of applying 
the technique to an operating 
system not at presem suitable 
for PC programs. 

Softclone does not alter the 
program it is operating on nor 
does it involve any illegal 
copying. Under ideal circum- 
stances it can actually enhance 
a program, according to Mr 
Johnson-Laird. He cited the 
case of the popular word 
processor, WordStar, where 
softcloning could prevent 
WordStar hogging the printer 
— a desirable result especially 
on a multi-user system. 

The technique requires very 
little memory. It demands a 
machine with a processor of 
the type in the IBM PC family, 
a suitable operating system, 
and the ability to read 1BM- 
format disks. 

Digital Research is not 
working to a timetable, but 
ultimately its involvement 
could have the most far- 
reaching effects.

Our accounts data use gives 
the firm exemption from regis- 
tration under the Data Protec- 
tion Act, However, our new 
computers may use some sales 
accounts dam to do mailing, so 
I am told. I believe that this 
trill mean that registration 
should be made. Is thb true? 
• Yes. fi is Also doubtful if 
exemption applies. Are you 
sure that even die current sales 
accounts data is never used to 
suggest that calls are made on 
particular accounts to gener- 
ate business? Any use for 
marketing purposes removes 
the exemption. At £22 for a 
three-year period of registra- 
tion, the cost of keeping clear 
of committing a criminal of- 
fence is not high. 

To be sure of registering 
properly it is useful to obtain 
the ‘‘guidelines” published by 
the Office of The Data Protec- 
tion Registrar. There is also a 
very simple booklet which 
answers questions such as the 
one you have raised, which is 
titled Questions and Answers 
on the Act. 


Our experience of connecting 
different systems has been 
frustrating. Eventually the 
networks can be made to 
function, but often rather poor- 
ly. When will things improve? 
• The satisfactory networking 
of particular computer patch- 
works is unpredictable. The 
urge to change this is now 
creating new businesses to 
deal with the problem. The 
National Computing Centre 
and the National Physical 
Laboratory are trying to pin 
down what works properly 
and under what conditions. 
The Networking Centre, near 
Slough, is already in operation 
with advice. It will shortly be 
doing strict testing for many 
local network configurations. 

In the United States the 
main computer suppliers, in- 
cluding IBM, are funding 
jointly a Corporation for 
Open Systems which aims to 
speed up the arrival of practi- 
cal interworking between 

commonplace, but different, 

This year will not see any 
spectacular results, but 1987 
should be a lot better. 

We have a large team of 
systems development staff. 
We have equipped- them with 
personal computers and spe- 
cial software to aid them. Is 
there an accepted cost figure 
for supporting staff at the 
analysis level? 

• Software to support systems 
analysis staff is generally part 
of a hefty investment per 
person. The packages which 
do diagramming of data flows 
and keep track of data descrip- 
tions in a comprehensive cata- 
logue are not cheap. For 
instance, the McDonnell 
Douglas subsidiary working in 
computing sells a software 
package for about £2.500. it is 
able to run on an IBM PC/XT 
fitted with 640 kilobytes of 
store. It needs some extra 
hardware to run the graphics 
for the diagrams - and a 
“pointer’' to move parts of the 
pretty pictures. 

There are a number of 
systems of this kind on offer, 
but most of them wotk out at 
much the same cost per 

Is there a best way of ensuring 
that artificial intelligence sys- 
tems written in the “Usp” 
programming language ran be 
transferred from machine to 
machine? These systems are 
costly to produce.

News is cominfiout of Califor- 
nia that could herald the first, 
glimmerings of. real robots, 
rather than the poor and inept 
attempts at the genre that have 
so for appeared. Circuit chips 
that can process sight and 
sound in much the same way 
as the human brain are now in 
the offing. . 

The chips are the product of 
the California Institute of 
Technology in Pasadena by 
Professor Carver Mead, one of 
the pioneers of VLSI (Very 
Large Scale Integration) cir- 
cuit design. This is the black 
art of getting an amazing 
amount of electronic circuitry 
packed into an infinitesmaily 
small space. 

His latest efforts are part of 
a long-running project to ex- 
amine and develop alternative 
methods of computing. The 
way that computers currently 
operate is based around a 
central processor which con- 
trols all the actions the system 
takes. Though satisfactory for 
processing numbers and text, 
it soon becomes woefully in-

The big 
boom in 

' By Nick Hampshire 
Typing in program listings for 
home computers from books 
and- magazines is so time- 
consuming and error prone 
that none but foe most enthu- 
siastic will normally attempt 
such an exercise. 

The problem of how to 
publish computer software, 
and data, in alow-cost primed 
form has long exercised the 
raindsof both publishers and 
authors. The solution may 
now be at' hand; machine 
readable printed software. 

Special patterned strips 
composed of many small dots 
are printed on to a page in a 
paper, magazine or book. By 
running a small hand-held 
device down the strip,, a 
program or data is loaded into 
the attached computer. 

The data could be text, 
graphics, even digitized mu- 
sic. Because the data is printed 
it provides a cheap alternative 
to magnetic media or tetecom- 
nnmkations for the recording, 
distribution and retrieval of 
information. - 

The concept of being able to 
print machine readable soft- 
ware or data on a sheet of 
paper is not new. Many meth- 
ods have been tried over the 
years' to prodnce a cheap 
means of disseminating com- 
puter programs or data. 

The most successful has 
been bar codes of the type now 
seen on many grocery hems.

There are now 186 Oxford- 
shire hi-tech companies wifo 
36 companies involved is 
computers. This is revealed m 
a research paper by Helen 
Lawton-Smitn, sponsored by 
the Oxford Trust, which in- 
tends to relate local research 
and development activities to 
relevant businesses. 

Oxfordshire’s major re- 
search institutions employ 

10,000 people and include 
Harwell, Cttlham and Ruther- 
ford. The trust has given an 
added fillip to changing aca- 
demic attitudes — it is now 
acceptable and even laudable 
for scientists and academics to 
apply their research in indus- 
try and commerce. 

One typical example of a 
company start-up is Exitech, 
set up in 1984 by laser experts 
Malcolm Gower and Phil 
Rumsby. who are two of 500 
scientists working at the Ruth- 
erford Laboratory. Working 
! evenings and weekends, they 
provide research on chemical 
bonds, but without a laser's 
: usual burning effect. The la- 
sers have applications in both 
plastics and biological tissue, 
producing dean precise cuts, 
down to the size of a micron, 

1 without damaging the sur- 
rounding plastic or tissue. 

Exitech is working with two 
I hospitals to find a method of 
unblocking arteries by sending 
laser beams through a fibre. 

Another company, Oxford 
, Lasers, is a prime example of 
successful technology transfer 
working on metal vapour 
systems in UK hospitals, so 
that photo-dynamic radiation 
therapy for treating cancer 
cells can be further assessed 
and improved. 

But the company to whose 
achievement many new com- 
panies aspire is Oxford Instru- 

sorfoed by the ordinary print- 
ing ink used to print the data 
strip. This causes the carbon 
in the black ink to beat up, a 
detector measures the heat 
output from the black areas 
and uses this information to 
input the data. 

The use of infra-red detec- 
tion gives the Cauzin reader 
some interesting abilities. Cof- 
fee stains and ink from fell tip 
pens win not beat up and we 
therefore ignored by the 

Also, by printing on col- 
oured paper the data can be 
made proof against photo- 
copying, since the extra toner 
resulting from the coloured 

paper will render the strip

there is only a chance of one in :

Martin Wood. It was one of 
the first hi-tech companies in 

’ Today it employs 900 peo- 
ple in the UK, has a £60 
million turnover and in 1986 
wfll open its fifth local factory. 
Its philosophy is that when 
one company in the group gets 
to a certain size, part is hived 
off as well as being a breeding 
ground for new management. 

It is not often that an 
academic has the courage to 
make a total break with the 
university when setting up in 
business, but this is what Peter 
Davey, CBE. did at the age of 
47. In 1984 he set up Meta 

Younger academics 
set a new trend 

Machines, Britain's first com- 
pany to develop sensor-guided 
robotic systems, in conjunc- 
tion with Ed Hudson, previ- 
ously a senior manager at 
Unimation. This meant giving 
up both his research and the 
job to which he bad been 
seconded running the SERCs 
robotics research programme. 

There is a trend for younger 
academics to market their 
own ideas. In 1981, after 
physics graduates Henry 
Hyde-Thomson and Ernst 
Vorf Wey hausen won an en- 
trepreneurial competition, 
they set up Grafox. The result 
is Logistix. a spread-sheet 
program with time manage- 
ment which cost £395 and has 
sold 2,500 copies since last 
September. Having set up an 
associate company in Madrid, 
Grafox plans to distribute in 

robot with vision 

Europe m 1986. 

In 1983 Keith Davis, then 
aged 25, came out of the 
university’s department of 
chemical crystallography to 
set up Chemical Design. The 
company has developed a 
software system called Chem- 
X for molecular modelling; 
160 systems have now been 
installed worldwide, costing 
£17,500 each. 

Economic factors are forc- 
ing not only individuals but 
institutions to find ways of 
making money out of re- 
search. Harwell has 4.000 
employees and a £100 million 
turnover of which £40 million 
is research and development, 
nuclear contracts and £20 
million non-nuclear research 
and development 

The later contracts are at- 
tracted by the 20 business 
centres developed at Harwell 
over the last 20 years. 

In 1986 further impetus to 
high technology development 
in Oxfordshire — dubbed the 
Oxford Connection to rival 
the Cambridge Phenomenon j 
— is likely to be given by an ! 
Oxford University committee 
report which may recommend 
setting up a company to 
exploit the university’s intel- 
lectual property. 

Despite continued wrangles 
over an Oxford science park 
site, possibilities for physical 
growth, such as a fight indus- 
trial development incorporat- 
ing start-up units planned on a 
32-acre site owned by BNF 
Metals Technology Centre at 
Wantage, 17 miles south of 
Oxford may also be suggested. 

The advent of the cheap 
business computer may be 
good news for consumers, but 
it is giving computer dealers a 
hard time. 

Machines compatible wifo 
IBM's personal computer and 
software, have tumbled onto 
the marker — making a big 
splash in the computer media 
and putting pressure on deal- 
ers to drop prices. Dealers say 
that they don’t see much 
consumer reaction to the flood 
of inexpensive IBM PC clones 
from Taiwan. 

They also point out that 
dealers selling machines for 
£1,000 or less, cannot be 
expected to give much 
aftersales service. Yet the 
price squeeze on main stream 
dealers could soon see them 
putting a price on that training 
and support in order to com- 
pete with the cut price 

Major companies such as 
Compaq and Olivetti claim 
they don't fear competition 
from Far Eastern importers. 
But the success of companies 
such as Amstrad — which has 
bad unprecedented sales in the 
small business sector with its 
PCW8256 word processor 
computer — has shown there is 
a big market for the right kind 
of low cost computers. 

The company is expected to 
announce a £1,000 IBM Style 
machine later this year. This 
could pot the fngktenen on 
some of the market leaders 
which have thus for main- 
tained a fair degree of market 
share without price cutting. 
The position for dealers could 
be even worse — as companies 
selling the cheap IBM done 
create an expectation in the 
public mind that the price of 
such machines should be less 
than £1,000. 

The dealers are also having 
increasing trouble making 
money on software: The mo- 
cess of companies such as 
Adam Osborne Paperbacks 
which sells appKcattoos for 
less than £100 and Borland 
Software, which has had great 
success with its low cost 
Sidekick have meant that 
dealers tend to make less 
money on software as wdL 

Some industry observers 
suggest that dealers win now 
turn to training and support 

Whatever happens, dealers 
may have to look at increas- 
ingly specialist markets to 
survive the onslaught of cheap 
machines, the entry of office 
equipment companies and 
High Street retailers (which 
has been the backbone of the 
Amstrad machines success) m 
this highly com p et i tive field.

headquarters in Central London, provides a comprehensive range of legal 
services to the company. We now seek to further strengthen this highly 
professional team by appointing two experienced solicitors to the 
following posts. ..

Conveyancing Solicitor

an unusually wide range of conveyancing work. The company has extensive 
property interests throughout the UK and you will be dealing with a high volume of

You will be concerned principally with drawing up detailed technical and 
commercial documents, and will have considerable involvement in the drafting 
and negotiation of a variety of commercial sales agreements, building and 
purchase contracts. The position, which reports directly to the head of the 
commercial department, calls for at least three years* post-qualification 
experience and. ideally, some knowledge of current environmental and industrial 
relations legislation. 

We are looking only for talented, high calibre lawyers and are willing to pay 
accordingly. In addition, we offer an attractive non-contributory package of 
benefits which is of the level expected from Britain's leading oil company and 
includes relocation assistance, where appropriate. 

Good opportunities exist for further career progression, both within the company 
and the wider BP Group.

Lower to ride high on Silver Ace Peatswood 

** Shooter 

hits bull for 

(Michael Phillips) 

• Following emphatic vic- 
tories at Market Rasen and 
Plurapton earlier this month. 
Silwar Ace looks a good bet to 
wm the- Downs Conditional 
Jockeys' Handicap Chase at 
Sandown Park today and he is 
my nap. 

^ While a u>nceding that 
Sandown is anything but an 
easy test for a relatively inex- 
perienced rider. Silver Ace is 
clearly-a good ride. When be 

was successful by 25 lengths at 
Market Rasen earlier, this 
month; Martin Pipe’s 
geldmgwon a race similar to 
today's. More recently he won 
another restricted to amateurs 
at Phimpton almost as easily, 
although. the winning «pat ym 
was onlyeigbt lengths.- At no 

stage was he in any danger that 

day. - 

This explains why his tal- 
ented owner-trainer went to 
5,000 guineas to retain 
K y- himafterhebad wonasdlerat 
Wincanton in January by 30 
lengths. Among the opposing 
riders today. Michael Bosley, 
Guy Landau and. Oive Cox 
are all up and co min g young 
men, but I feel that it win be 
Jonoihan Lower who win be 
able to call the tune on Silver 
Ace, who is improving and, 
every bit as important, still at 
the right end Of the hanriirap 

- Later , ip the day. Special 
Cargo, ihc Queen Mother’s 
great Sandown specialist, win 
be out to win the Alanbrooke 
Memorial Handicap Chase 
again and so improve his 
already remarkable record on 
the course, which now extends 
to one victory over hurdles 
and seven chases. . 

Earlier this month Special 
Cargo’s third successive vic- 
tory in the Grand Military 
Gold Cup was achieved even 
though Gerald Oxley, his rider 
on that occasion, had to do 
without stirrups over the last 
three jumps after a leather had 
broken on landing over the. 
last of the three railway fences. 
Today Kevin Mooney, who 
was .aboard Special Cargo 
when they gained that equally 
remarkable victory in the 
Whitbread Gold Cap two 
seasons ago, takes over again. 

Well, though Special Cargo 
should go now that he is back 
on his happy hunting ground, 
I cannot escape the feeung that 
he faces an uphill struggle 

Silver Ace and Jonathan Lower on then’ way to an easy victory at Market Rasen 

against Western Sunset, Catch 
Phrase and 1 Haven talight, 
who all ran conspicuously well 
at Cheltenham recently; West- 
ern Sunset by finishing third 
to Half Free and The Mighty 
Mac in the Cathcart Challenge 
Cup, Catch Phrase and 1 
Havenialight when they fin- 
ished second and third to 
Charter Party in the Ritz Chib 
National Hunt Trophy. 

I just prefer Western Sun- 
set, whose trainer, Tim For- 
ster, hit form with a vengeance 
at Newbury last Friday when 
tie saddled-four winners.

Chase, looks the one to be on 
for the Royal Ordnance 
Handicap Chase carrying only 

list 41b. The redoubtable 
Forster is fielding both Left 
Bank and Lefrak City, who are 
both useful at their best, as is 
Hazy Sunset, who may well 
relish this distance after ap- 
parently being outstayed by 
Roadster in his last race at 

Clara Mountain, another 
fended runner from Forster’s 
in-form Letcombfr Bassett sta- 
ble, tackles Desert Orchid in 
the British Aerospace Rapier 
Novices’ Chase; Never at his 
best when going- left-handed. 
Desert .Orchid did- much : bei- 
ter than usual at Cheltenham 
when he finished third in the 
Arkle Challenge -Trophy. 
Now, back on a right-hand 
course again, he should prove 
capable of regaining the win- 
ning trail. 

The Royal Artillery Gold 

Cup ought to be won by 
PrydeL just so Jong as his 
recent good ran against Spe- 
cial Cargo was not a fluke. 
Royal Judgment is surely the 
one they auhave to beat in the 
RMC Group Ubique Open 
Hunters' Chase. 

At Leicester, the Grey- 
hound Handicap Slakes may 
be won by Balgownie, the 20-1 
winner of an apprentices' race 
at Doncaster on the opening 
day of the new Flat season last 
Thursday. Jade MulhaU's 
mare has escaped being penal- 
. ized and still has the beating of 
Lovely Butterfly. 

- -Amber Clown, runner up to 
Rove in the Batlhyany Stakes 
on the same afternoon, can 
cash in on his fitness and go 
one better in the Butler Handi- 
cap Stakes. * 


Mel Brittain saddled 
Peatswood Shooter to lead all 
the way in the Knighton Maiden 
Auction Stakes at Leicester yes- 
terday and main tain his spar- 
kling start to the new Flat 
season. Brittain has had a 
winner on each of the first four 
days and three of them have 
been juveniles. “It’s a marvel- 
lous start, but we may be 
running out now — we’ll have to 
see", the WarihiU (Yorkshire) 
trainer said. 

Brittain paid only 2,000 guin- 
eas for Peatswood Shooter at 
Newmarket, but this is still 500 
guineas more than he paid for 
bis Brocklesby winner. 
Bluemede. Kevin Dariey got a 
good start on Peatswood 
Shooter and had the 7-2 shot in 
from from the start. 

Derek Brown, the 24-year-old 
LiverpooLborn jockey, made a 
winning start on his first mount 
for the third season running 
when The Wooden Hot landed 
the Kingsnorth Handicap at 
gale-swept Folkestone. Brown, 
who came into racing when be 
was 16, said: “In 1984 my first 
mount won at Brighton and in 
1985 I bad my first ride at 
Folkestone and won for my 
boss, David Elsworth, on 

Brown lost his riding allow- 
ance last June and has now 
ridden 1 1 winners. Rufus 
Voorspuy. the trainer of The 
Wooden Here, sakt “Brown rode 
a very sensible, patient race on 
ray colL This has given me a 
good start to the new season. 1 
Had one Flat winner last year at 
Salisbury and this ray first 
success at Folkestone since I had 
a 100-1 winner, Duke William, 
over jumps three seasons ago 
and then lost the race in the 
stewards' room". 

Also making winning starts to 
the new Flat season with their 
first runners were Richard 
Hannon and Willie Musson. 
Hannon sent out Mister Colin 
to land the Headcorn Stakes for 
the third year running. Lee 
Jones, who won the race 12 
months ago on Dons Chorus, 
partnered Mister Colin, who 
drew dear to beat Lady Pat by

Visit to southern hemisphere 
yields varied results 

By David Hands, Rugby Correspondent, Sydney 

Foar of the teams who took 
part iiftbe inaagoni New Sooth 
Wales International Sevens 
tournament over the weekend 
here r etur n ed to the northern 
hemisphere on the same flight 
yesterday- Their feelings about 
the event, however, differed 

Wales had the most cause for 
congratulations. Buoyed «p by 
the twinkling Jonathan Davies, 
they proved to be one of the most 
positive teams in the tour- 
nament, even if they did not, in 
the final analysis, match op to 
the advertising hype which sug- 
gests that rugby is the game they 
play in heaven. 

Davies himself, the scorer of 
seven tries, was disappointed 
that Wales had not shown better 
form is the stoHbnb against 
Australia when they had suf- 
-fldent possession but did not use 
it property. It was, nevertheless, 
an i mp o rta nt experience for 
yosng players such as John 
Deverenx and Kevin Phillips, 
who will Surely form part of the 
Welsh World Cop squad, even 
though the relevance of playing 
in Sydney in next year’s events 
is minimal since Wales have 
been dr aw n to play in New 

France and Romania per- 
formed to expectation, the 
French limited by the talent they 
left at home, bat capable of 
achieving respectability through 
the individual virtuosity of 
Serge Blanco and Marc 
Ammen. Romania have little 
sevens experience and indicated 
as much; 1 doubt if their hopes 
were high but their players will 
have enjoyed Australia. 

TTnglanH returned severely 
chastened. Their stock before 
arrival was not high and it was 
even lower by the time for 
departure. They performed the 
basks badly, they lacked speed 
and they ladled preparation. It 
ma y he that England’s admin-' 
istrators will say that this was 
just another sevens tournament, 
that it had little significance and 
that team selection was ham- 
pered by postponed cup 

Nevertheless, I have no doubt 
that a better sevens side conld 
have been chosen, and if it was 
believed that a sufficiently 
strong representative team could 
not be fielded then the invitation 
should have been declined, as 
Scotland and Ireland dfaL If the 
event did not mean much to 
England, it meant a great deal to 
those other countries who are 
not members of the Inter- 
national Board and whose only 
chance to play on a world stage 
is tournaments such as this and 
the Hoag Kong Sevens next 

AH that Fnghmri wfll be 

remembered for is the defeat 

against Spain and the straggle to 
overcome The Netherlands, and 
this memory will Unger next 
year when England visits Syd- 
ney once more to compete in the 
World Cup. In that respect, at 
least, they prepared some 
ground in terms of potential 
facilities and accommodation. 

A most telling comment was 
passed at the post-tournament 
dinner by Bryce Rope, coach to 
the winning New Zealand team. 
He was alarmed, be said, by the 
growing superiority of the south- 
ern hemisphere countries 
against those Grom the north, 
which created an unhealthy 
imbalance of power. The world 
game, he implied, needed the 
moderating input of the home 
countries Just as much as the 
brash commercialism of 

New Zealand have used this 
sevens event most positively, as 
they have m seasons past when 
entering the Hoag Kong tour- 
nament. They have developed a 
regional and provincial com- 
petition at the shut of their 
season to encourage fitness and 
to seek out the best sevens 
players, who are thereby given 
an early and possibly un- 
expected taste of playing in their 
country’s colours. 

It whets the appetite for more, 
and indeed, we shall be seeing 
more of Zinzan Brooke, Wayne 
Sbelford, David Kirk, and the 
rest, and not just because Kirk is 
confirmed as arriving at Oxford 
University next autumn. Rope 
has promised to bring the same 
squad to Cardiff in May to play 
in the Sports Aid Sevens, to be

on Rod Sealy’s lace said it all. 

Here, certainly, is a speedy, 
skilful seven in the best Mon-

cannily and with great

High wind 

By Jim Railton 

Cambridge abandoned their 
outing yesterday morning when 
strong winds swept the Tideway, 
making it perilous in pans. 
Oxford, on the other hand, 
chanced their arms along lhe 
Hammersmith Reach and 

With luck the wind will blow 
itself out before the Boat Race 
on Saturday, but should ii move 
round to the north-west the race 
could be postponed until Sun- 
day or Monday. 

This is just one added factor 
in what is a vital week of 
preparations. With the real work 
now behind the crews, stake- 
boat starts and final tuning takes 

Cambridge abandoned the 
Tideway and its white horses 
yesterday morning, choosing to 
flex their muscles in the relative 
warmth and shelter of the 
Thames Rowing Club's lank. 

Their important outing last 
Saturday must be counted as 
partially successful. It was to 
have been a 12-minute row. 
from near the race start to 
beyond Hammersmith Bridge, 
against a national squad eight. 

But at short notice the na- 
tional squad opted to row for 
only six minutes. In the end 
their challenge finished bluntly 
after two with a broken gate. At 
that point Cambridge had their 
noses in front and held together 
strongly to complete their 
scheduled task. 

In doing so Cambridge eased 
some of their concern over 

two points below and above 
Hammersmith Bridge. They 
will also have to beware what 
appears to be Oxford's tra- 
ditional spurt around Harrods' 
depository. If they can answer 
that then it is important to 
sustain the pace all the way to

Cash is the key 
as Kaylor 
sets his sights 
on Graham 

By Sriknmar Sen. Boxing Correspondent 

After Tony Sibson's with- 
drawal last week as official 
; challenger to Herol Graham, 
the European champion, 
Mark Kaylor was quick to step 
forward and issue a challenge 
to the Sheffield boxer. “! want 
Graham but the money must 
•be right.” Kaylor said 

Mike Barrett, the London 
promoter, was equally quick 
to seize upon the windfall and 
declared that the two men 
could share a six-figure sum if 
Graham agreed to defend 
against the West Ham middle- 
weight at Wembley on May 
20 . 

Barrett said: “It is a fight 
that will fill Wembley. There 
should be no difficulty for the 
EBl/ in nominating Kaylor as 
the official challenger as he is 
ranked No 6 in the world. But 
an official nomination may 
not even be necessary if 
Graham makes a voluntary 

As Marvin Hagler, the 
world champion, is believed 
to have made his plans up to 
the end of the year, when he is 
expected to retire after equal- 
ling or beating Carlos 
Monzon's record of 14 de- 
fences, there is. according to 
‘Barrett, no contest that will 
pay Graham the kind of 
money that Barren is prepared 
to offer. 

Kaylor. who knocked out 
‘Errol Christie on November 5 
fast year in the final eliminator 
for the British middleweight 
tide, aims to do the same to 
Graham. “He won the British 
and European title the easy 
‘way." Kaylor said yesterday. 
-According to Kaylor. Ayub 
KafuJe. the European champi- 
on. was an old man. "Kalule 

was so far gone it was not 
true ” Kaylor said. “I would 
fight Graham the same way as 
I fought Christie. I would put 
him on the ropes and make 
him feel he was behind bars 
and someone was beating him 
through them." 

In anticipation, Kaylor is 
having a warm-up against 
Kenny Snow, of Columbus, 
Ohio, on Wednesday, April 9, 
at the Albert HalL Snow, who 
has had 21 contests and won 
19 (1 3 of them on knock-outs),

bantamweight champion, 
meets Robert Dickie. ofSwan-

weight title vacated by 
Barry McGuigan. 

Doctor’s fears 

over Coetzee 

Johannesburg — An expert 
here has questioned whether 
Gerrie Coetzee, South Africa's 
former world heavyweight 
champion, should have been 
allowed in the ring with 
Britain's Frank Bruno, the 
man who humiliated him with 
a first round knockout (Paul 
Martin writes). 

Dr Give Noble, a Transvaal 
Boxing Board member and 
their chief medical adviser, 
said: "At first I thought 
Coetzee was just fat and lazy 
when he fought Bruno. But he 
looks a lot different these 
days. His speech appears slow- 
er. he stares with a sometimes 
expressionless look. These are 
often early signs of brain

Signs of optimism for Faldo 

From John Ballantine, New Orleans 

Things finally came right, or 
nearly right, for Nick Faldo at 
the New Orleans Classic where 

he had easily his best finish of 
his 1986 US campaign so far, 
ending up joint third and win- 
ning $24,000 (£16,100). 

For Calvin Peete, the outright 
winner by five strokes, and also 
tor Faldo, the timing of their 
sudden onsets of sound form 
coukl not have been better. 
Peete is the holder of the 
Tournament Players’

the PGA headquarters at Ponte

Florida on Thursday, and be is

Faldo, who survived as 

Europe's main hope following 
the failure of Ballesteros and

grit at the end. It was one thing

Witt loses 

title but 

wins more 

From John Hennessy, 
Geneva . 

There were two heroines on 
the ice here on Sunday night,, 
Debi Thomas,, of the United 
States, and Katarina. Witt, of 
East Germany. ' Miss. Thomas 
became the new world figure 
skating champion, the first black 
woman to achieve the pinnacle, 
and Miss Witt won the free 
skating with a performance of 
spell-binding excellence. 

If Miss Wirt had to surrender 
her title, she at least went down 
bravely with an colours Dying. 
The winner in 1984 and 1985, 
she had never yet forced the 
perfect mark of 6.0 from anyone 
judge. Now she made two of 
them surrender. Other skarers 
may have had more triple 
jumps, or greater variety, com- 
pared with her four triple jumps, 
two salchows and two toofoops. 
but we were seduced into ignor- 

ing width and feeling die quality 
as she proved that, at 20, she 

now has all the maturity nec- 
essary to dramatize her music 

Miss Thomas knew that she 
could afford to let one skater 
beat her in the free — and Miss 
Witt had already done that — 
but danger lurked in ber compa- 
triot, Tiffany Chin, the last 
skater in the competition. In the 
event Miss Thomas, who was 
fifth last year at her. first 
attempt, had. the character to 
meet the crisis. 

She had “three game plans"; 
according to her trainer. Alex 
McGowan, once of Glasgow and 
London, and the one she used 
incorporated four triple jumps. 
The judges were sufficiently im- 
pressed to hoist marks as high as 
5.9. No matter what damage 
Miss Chin would do — in fact 
she was to be well below form — 
Miss Thomas now dissolved 
into tears and the arras of the 
expansive McGowan.

fein to be able to spend more 
time with .the players but the 
coach's other job as leisure 
centres manager for the Royal 
Borough of Kingston-upon- 
Thames limits his opportu- 
nities. Nevertheless, be has now 

helped Kingston capture four of 
g dome 

the six big domestic trophies at 
stake over the past two seasons. 

The uncertainty over Clark 
derives from bis determination 
to .make the grade in the 
National Basketball Association t- 
m the United States. 

Kingston visit Solent tomor- 
row in the British Masters, a 
match which assumes extra 
irrelevance following Kingston's 
success at Wembley. 

It was probably the flattest 
Wembley ever. With neither 
Walkers Crisps Leicester, in the 
semi-final, nor Binninghain 
Bullets, in the final, extending 
them. Kingston won as they 
pleased. Most of the excitement 
revolved around Crystal Palace, 
whose losing semi-final with 
Birmingham was the highlight. 
Bubba Jennings then went on to 
score 60 points, a Wembley 
record, in the third-place match 
with Leicester and the dub's 
women completed a treble with 
theircup final victory over Avon

pictures by the state 
photographer; Don McCuIRn. 
Having made his name on the 
batttenslds of the world, McCidHn 
comes back to Britain for a 
personal portrait of our island 
now. Given McCu Bin's 
concern with the squalid 
underside of the human 
condition, it is no surprise that he 
looks for his images among 
the slums of Bradford and the 
down and outs of the London . 
East End. The programme is 
presented without comment 
or commentary but McCuUln's 
anger at the damp, peeling 
rooms and poor wretches forced 
to scavenge for their next 
meal is obvious enough. It often 
recalls those bleak 
documentaries of the 1 930s with 
McCuitin as a latter-day 


Orwell, taking Ns own road to 
Wigan Pier. The picture may 
be selective. But it constantly 
raises tf» question of tow

PLAID (Channel 4. 9pm) is a 
television premiere of Carl 
Reiner's 1981 spoof on the

Taking an archetypal fOm noir 
plot - private detective hired 
by attractive girl to investigate 
her father's death - Reiner 
intercuts the action with cfips 
from classic thrillers of the 
1940s so that our hero (played by 

Steve Martin) rubs celluloid 
shoulders with the Ekes of 
Barbara Stanwyck, 

Humphrey Bogart, Alan Ladd 
and Joan Crawford. If the 
device sometimes promises 
more than It delivers, we are 
still left with a marvellous 
anthology of vintage 

• SEMANA SANTA (Radio 4. 
8.30pm) is the sort of subject that 
seems to cry out for pictures 
and yet is done so imaginatively 
that we are soon composing 
the images for ourselves. The 
actor Trader Faulkner, is our 
guide to one of the world's most 
spectacular religious festivals 
which takes place from Palm 
Sunday to Good Fnday in the

of luck and 

of touch 

From John Woodcock, Cricket Correspondent, Barbados 

Before the present Test 
series started Vivian Rich- 
ards. the West Indian captain, 
let it be known how thankful 
he was that he would Dot 
himself be spending the next 
two monLhs facing the West 
Indian fast bowlers. 

He said so not as propagan- 
da, but out of a genuine 
understanding of what lay 
ahead of England's batsmen 
and the likely effect it would 
have on them, as it probably 
would on him. Sunday's play 
here in the third Test provided 
a prime example of wbat he 

When it ended, thousands 
of England's supporters, some 
of whom had been saving up 
for years to come to Barbados 
for the match, were shocked 
by what they had seen. To 
niany of them, the technical 
and psychological problems of 
playing Garner. Marshall. 
Holding and Patterson for 
hours on end are a closed 

But what in fact they had 
witnessed was a morning's 
bowling which no batsman 
that I know would have 
wanted to back himself to 
survive, and an evening when 
the demoralizing effect of 
facing non-stop high-class fast 
bowling was grimly apparent 

.As England showed against 
Australia last summer, they 
can be a very good batting 
side. As such, they should 
obviously bave been capable 
of scoring the 119 runs they 
needed now, with nine wickets 
in hand, to save the follow-on 
and so extend the match. 

Instead shaken by their 
previous failures, disconcert- 
ed by finding conditions so 
much in favour of the bowlers 
and badly out of form, they 
felled by 30 runs. Against their 
own bowling, or Australia's, it 
would have been a different 
matter, a different game. 

Sad as it undoubtedly was. 

there was also a technical 
explanation for England's first 
innings collapse. One local 
pundit, a West Indian Test 
cricketer, said be reckoned 
that perhaps only once a year 
would he see the ball move 
about as it did on Sunday 

An uneven bounce only 
added to the difficulties of 

match and Test cricket is, as it 
should be, a hard game. 

Yet Gower still got out to 
one of his off-side swishes and 

Botham played an innings 
lort of a 

which was nothing short 
travesty. Botham is a special 
case at the moment. I suppose. 

in a sense, he always has been, 

batting. England's second fail- 
ure of the day. after lea, was 

due much more to a lack of 
spirit, and it was because of

this that it was so hard to bear. 

I have seen exactly the same 
thing happen to an Australian 
side in South Africa (1969-70), 
an England side in Australia 
11974-75) and a West Indian 
side in Australia <1975-76). 
always because one side has 
been strong in fast bowling 
and the other not. It is horrible 
when it occurs, not least 
because the symptoms are so 

In the last hour on Sunday 

England played as though they 

had lost heart. Batting was sti 
far from .straightforward. But 
Engjand were in desperate 
straits, and this was a Test 

He is under the fiercest pres- 
sure, much of which, it is true, 
he has brought upon himself 

He bas bent vilified beyond 
all acceptable limits in the 
press; he is to be investigated 
bv the police for possible drug 
offences on his great walk 
from John O'Groats to Land's 
End; his cricket has gone to 
pieces and there is no-one here 
to give him the leadership and 
encouragement be desperately 

On Sunday evening, when 
Botham went in at 108 for 
four with 20 minutes left, 
Gower said nothing to him. 
But why not? “Now come on, 
Ian, you've got to be there at 
the dose. We've a rest day 
tomorrow and if we're still 
only four wickets down to- 
night you can go and get us a 
great hundred on Tuesday." 

There was nothing like that 
— and Botham just went in 
and slogged. Cheered most of 
the way to the wicket by the 
English' contingent, he came 
off in silence when, in the last 
over, he was caught at the 

It is hard enough at the best 
of times playing the West 
Indian fast bowlers. To try 
and do so with so much on his 
mind as Botham has. and with 
no-one to help him sort it out, 
is, as we saw, the recipe for a 
brainstorm. It was like some 
Greek drama, as melancholy 
in its way as anything I have 
ever seen on a cricket field. 
The best place for him at the 
moment might be at home, 
just trying to son things out. 

In Australia later this year it 
will all be much easier, I 

A word in Botham's ear, butGower has failed to talk the all-rounder out of his disappointlng speU 

expect Touts to the West 
Indies have . become unlike 
any others. But that is no 
reason, pompous though it 
may sound, for overlooking 
the need for the qualities that 
make an officer, and for others 
that make a company sergeant 
major and others a good 

David Gower spoke quietly 
and thoughtfully yesterday of 
the problems and the 

disappointments. On reflec- 
tion he says he would have 
liked to have batted first. He 
asked the head groundsman 
before the match, as I did, 
what be thought of the pilch 
and got the same answer : “It 
will be no place for batting on 
the first morning." 

So he did as most others 
would have done, armed with 
such advice,, and fielded. It 
gave England their best chance 

of taking the initiative, but in 
the event they bowled pooriy. 
“We have to ' make such 
decisions on the first morning 
of the match, not the morning 
of the rest day,” he said. “My 
style of captaincy has not 
changed since last summer 
and it was good enough then. I 
shall be having a word with 
tiie team to say that pride 
matters and we've still got a 
tour to finish. 

“They can sink to whatever 
low depths they tike and it 
won't help them. It’s not a 
question of packing. np_ and 
going through the motions.

Birmingham selected 
for new indoor arena 

Birmingham's ambition to 
stage the 1992 Olympic 
Games was given a boost 
yesterday when the city was 
chosen for the site of Britain's 
first national indoor sports 

The Sports Council chose 
Birmingham in preference to 
Manchester. Milton Keynes 
and two sites in London. The 
decision means that if the 
details for the Birmingham 
scheme are agreed, the project 
will get a grant of £3 million 
towards the £1 S million cost. 

The arena, which would 

hold 8.000 spectators, is 
planned for the city centre and 
would be linked to a confer- 
ence centre. Work could start 
next year and although Sports 
Council officials insisted that 
Birmingham had not been 
picked because of the possibil- 
ity of the Olympic Games 
being held in the city, the 
arena should be finished be- 
fore 1991 

The Sports Council are also 
prepared to give financial help 
to the London Dome — a 
sports arena planned for 
London's dockland

. 132 D'.-rby Sooci, Nottingham 

Jake Downey, who has been 
under fire from his top players 
in recent weeks, is to cany on 
as the England manager. ' 

Nine tea ding players bad 
petitioned for Downey's re- 
moval from the -post, but 
yesterday the Badminton As- 
sociation of England’s execu- 
tive committee announced a 
unanimous vote of confidence 
in the manager — who win 
lead the team to both the 
European and world team 

Significant changes have 
been made, however, among 
them the inclusion of a sup- 
porting managerial team 
made up of a selector and a 
coach for both events. Invita- 
tions have also been extended 
to Nora Perry and Martin 
Dew, who were originally 
excluded by Downey because 
they refused to travel with the 
squad to the world team 
championships in Indonesia. 

The selectors also arranged, 
against Downey’s wishes, for 
the team to travel to Jakarta 
three days later than originally 
planned. Sadly the compro- 
mise may not work. Mrs 
Perry. England's best known 
and most successful player in 
recent years, is still sticking by 
her statement that she mil not 
play for England while Dow- 
ney is in charge. Dew, mean- 
while, says he will travel five 
days later, sot three. 

Despite the problems, the 
manager is delighted with the 
vote of confidence. “Perhaps 
we can now get on with the 
business of winning," be said. 

There may, however, still be 
a twist or two'to the tale. Some 
of the players are surprised 
that he has survived when 
they believed they had won 
the support of the selectors. 
Several expressed their disap- 
pointment at the outcome. 

Once again the two leading 
singles players, Steve 
Baddeley and Helen Troke, 
were outspoken. “We had 
hoped for more than this," 
Baddeley said, while Miss 
Troke. the European champi- 
on. described it as “a negative 

Two more controversial is- 
sues may present themselves. 
Firstly, if Mrs Perry sticks to 
her current stand then h is 
doubtful whether she will be 
able to play for England in the 
Commonwealth Games. Sec- 
ondly, the EBA has reiterated 
its belief that the manager's 
job be separated into two roles 
as soon as money is available. 
If that happens, then the 
players' wishes will have been 


Budd on way to greatness 

From Pat Butcher, Athletics Correspondent, NeucMtel 

Zola Budd is on her nay to 
becoming the greatest woman 
athlete in the history of cross- 
country running if she can 
survive the censure attached to 
her links with South Africa. 

Miss Budd’s second run- 
away victory in the world 
championships hoe came 
against less than top opposi- 
tion. But there is more than a 
suspicion that nmners such as 
Grate Wain and Ingrid 
Kristiansen, training for mara- 
thons, and Markka Pnica 
simply decided not to compete, 
tints avoiding a crashing de- 
feat by the youngster. 

Mrs Waite is one of two 
women who have won this 
championship on five occa- 
sions, the other being Doris 
Brown, of the United States, 
wt»o competed before the race 
became an official world 
championship and when there 
were only half a dozen coun- 
tries participating. In the 
women's race os Sunday 28 
countries took part 

Miss Budd has won twice is 
succession and is likely to 
continue tartil a similarly tal- 
ented runner emerges, be- 
cause Mary Slaney, the only 
woman athlete capable of 
beating Miss Bndd in this sort 
of race, will never risk her 

delicate legs hi cross-country 

Miss Bndd will receive two 
athletics awards from. Prince 
Philip at Buckingham Palace 
tomorrow and then will no in 
the Five Mflb cross-country

The ties with her native land 
contributed to two official 
rebuffs for Miss Bndd in the 
last week. Her South African 
coach, Pieter Labusdiagne, 
and his wife, Karen, were 
refused permission to accom- 
pany her to the Palace, and, 
perhaps more pointedly for 
her athletics career, Lamine 
Diack. president of the Afri- 
can Amateur Athletic Confed- 
eration, refused to award Miss 
Bndd's gold medal on Sunday, 
saying, “as for. as I am

The freakish; weather in 
Berkshire; as elsewhere yesto* 
dgy; produced one particular- 
ly freakish result in the 
SunningdaleFoursomes — the 
defeat of the holders, Sam 
Torrance and John. O'Leary, 
Ryder Cup players both. 

. On. the face of il, their 
second round tie against two 
assistants on level terms (after 
a bye in the first round) had 
the makings of a gentle intro- 
duction to the main business 
of the week. But while they 
could not readily come to 
terms with the boisterous 
wind and uncomfortable cold, 
Gary Vautier (Downshire) 

and Ghary Steel (Wexham 
pitched into them com- 

mg home and despatched the 
champions with an unlikely 
birdie at the home hole. 

; The.' day" began 
unpropitiously tbr the 'senior 
pair when.Tonance lost a ball 
at the first hole. In spiteof that 
they reached the turn two up 
and the expected ‘pattern 
teemed to be. talrihg.shape_ It 
looked rather like a four and 
three touch, bb&tmgdowh. :

six, two over par, seemed not- 
to disturb them', for they won 
thenext hole with abiidiel Bat 
the l2ih extracted three putts 
and the 16th brought the pairs 
level again, when O’Leary 
drove short and Torrance 
hooked wide. • ■ _
