From Christopher Walker, Moscow 


Fears about the long-term 
consequences of the Chernobyl 
nuclear disaster increased las 
night when nearly 100 British 
students being evacuated from 
Moscow were discovered in 
their first screening by a British 
expert to have higher than 
normal radiation levels on 
their clothing. 

Mr John Burley, the British 
Airways station manager, told 
The Times that all the stu- 
dents had been asked to 
change into fresh overalls and 
tracksuits flown in from Lon- 
don as a precautionary 
measure. 

“The readings were much 
higher titan we had expected.’’ 
he said. "Our concern was to 
lake the maximum sensible 
precautions and get them 
out.” 

All of the students had 
earlier been screened with a 
Geiger counter at a Soviet 
- clinic in Moscow, and no 
official Soviet concern had 
been expressed publicly about 
the levels of radiation 
discovered. 

The students were all living 
in Kiev or Minsk, two large 
Sov ici cities dose to the site of 
Friday’s incident, and diplo- 
matic sources said last night 
that the more than 3 million 
Sov ici residents of the cities 
can be expected to have 
suffered the same radiation 
levels. 

After the airport screening, 
many of the students were 
reported by Western sources 
in ha\ c been "concerned and 
upset** at the Endings, al-

Global 

inquiry 

sought 

By Richard Evans 

Lobby Reporter 

Mr Kenneth Baker, Secre- 
tary of State feu the Environ- 
ment. last night called for an 
international investigation 
into the Chernobyl nuclear 
accident. 

Speaking at the Ryedale by- 
election. he said the inquiry, 
involving representatives of 
the International Atomic En- 
ergy Agency, should look into 
the design of The plant, the 
operating conditions and the 
circumstances of the accident. 

"*ln this way the interna- 
tional community would learn 
valuable lessons which would 
benefit us all” Mr Baker said. 

“I hope that Russia will 
understand and accept that 
the price to be paid for 
membership of the interna- 
tional community, and for the 
trust of that community, is an ! 
openness and a readiness to , 
share information. 

“Unhappily this is a price : 
which Russia has so far shown j 
herself unwilling to pay." 

Mrs Thatcher left London 
for the Tokyo economic sum- 
mit last night, determined to 
bring international pressure to 
bear on Russia for its secretive 
approach to the leak. 

Earlier, the Prime Minister 
told the Commons: “These 
matters go way beyond the 
borders of any country and 
must be dealt with on a global 
scale". 

The Cabinet discussed the 
leak in an 80 minute meeting 
yesterday. Senior ministep 
believe Russian reticence in 
providing basic information 
about the Irak could hinder

Prison officers leaders

The dispute is about man-

1 an instruction to touch no

It was learned last night that 
a team of US experts is 
expected soon to conduct 
more rigorous radiation tests. 

A number of the foreigners 
have come under pressure 
from relatives to leave the 
Soviet Union, but by last night 
the great majority appeared 
willing to remain until they get 
more detailed guidance, espe- 
cially about pregnant women 
and young children.

brief, 10-line statement from 
the Council of Ministers 
claiming that no foreign citi- 
zens had been affected by the 
disaster, but that 1 8 of its own

. had earlier said that only two 
people had died and 19 1 were 
in hospital after the nuclear

Britons 
to leave 
Warsaw 

By Nicholas Ashford 
Diplomatic Correspondent 

The British embassy in 
Warsaw yesterday began mak- 
ing arrangements to evacuate 
the pregnant wives and young 
children of embassy staff be- 
cause of the high radiation 
levels recorded in the Polish 
capital. 

The Foreign Office said it 
had decided to take this 
precaution after several em- 
bassy wives expressed concern 
about the health risks posed 
by the high radiation levels 
resulting from the Chernobyl 
disaster. 

British companies operating 
in Poland also have been 
advised to evacuate pregnant 
wives and young children. 

Because of the continuing 
failure of the Polish and 
Soviet authorities to provide 
detailed information about 
radiation levels, the Foreign 
Office has advised Britons to 
avoid travelling to the western 
Soviet Union and north-east- 
ern Poland, including Moscow 
and Warsaw, 

But on the basis of reliable 
monitoring of radiation levels 
in Helsinki by the Furnish 
authorities, it is now consid- 
ered safe to travel to 
Leningrad. . 

Radiation levels in Moscow 
are being directly monitored 
by technicians at the British 
embassy and it is expected 
they will soon give the all-clear 
for the Soviet capital. 

Britain is still awaiting an- 
swers to a number of technical 
questions about the disaster 
which Sir Bryan Cartledge, the 
British ambassador, submit- 
ted to the Soviet authorities 
earlier this week.

French 
in will 

From Susan MacDonald 
Paris 

The Pasteur Institute wBI be 
the Duchess of Windsor's 
main beneficiary, it was an- 
nounced in Paris yesterday by 
the Duchess's lawyer and old 
friend, Maitre Snzanne Blum, 
who announced details of the 
will. 

Besides the Pasteur Insti- 
tute, Maitre Blum annosnoed 
bequests for associations, 
charities and museums in 
France and Fnglnnd, 

French museums will re- 
ceive her collection of furni- 
ture, ornaments and porcelain. 
There is also a long list of 
individual bequests which in- 
cludes members of the Royal 
Family. 

Maitre Blum said the fact 
that French institutions were 
to receive the major part of the 
Duchess's wealth should be 
interpreted as a sign of her 
gratitude to the French Gov- 
ernment for its kindness to the 
Windsors since 1936. 

Maitre Bhim said the wiO 
consisted of two documents, 
one dated 1972 and the other 
1973. It is the latter document 
which contains the list of 
individual bequests. 

The Duchess has be- 
queathed her collection of 
18th-century furniture to the 
Louvre and to the Chateau de 
Versailles, and her porcelain 
collection to the Sfrvres 
museum. 

Other charities and institu- 
tions mentioned include: the 
Royal National Lifeboat Insti- 
tution: The Guide Dogs for the 
Blind Association; the 
Soldiers'. Sailors' and 
Airmen's Families Associa- 
tion; the Pestalozzf Village;

most voters in the capital 


opposed the manner of its

If die results of the Harris

Some of the Labour gains 
would be in hung boroughs 
like Hammersmith and Ful-

Such sweeping gains would

Mr Donald MacMillan, lo- 
cal grocer in Lodi Gflpfaead, 
Argyll and councillor for the 
mid-Argyll and Islay board of 
Strathclyde region, regards 
the territory he fe defending at 
next week's election frith a 
certain awe. 

It is bigger than Luxem- 
bourg and it would be quicker 
to cross the length of France 
than to make the joarney from 
the Rians of Islay across the 
scattering of inner-Hebridean 
islands to the Bridge of Orchy 
near Glencoe. 

The task of representing 
such a tract of the Highlands 
swayed Mr MacMillan to 
stand this time as a Conserva- 
tive rather than as an Indepen- 
dent “It is too much for one 
man without any kind of sup- 
port. The Conservatives were 


most easily the most progress- 
ive opposition so 1 had no hesi- 
tation in nailing my colours to 
them,” be said. 

Mid-Argyll and Islay does 
not reflect the overall charac- 
ter or political colour of 
Strathclyde, a vast region that 
contains ha lf tbe population of 
Scotland, is centred on Glas- 
gow, and is anassaflabty 
socialist 

Argyll's problems coaid not 
be more unlike those of the 
crowded, urban area strug- 
gling to recover from industri- 
al decline that lies along tiie 
Clyde. 

Mr MacMillan admits be 
has taken a rafanlated risk in 
joining foe Tories at a time 
when Scottish voters are 
smarting under increased rate 
demands and communities 
such as Islay — where each 


islander was mice said to 
represent £1 million a year in 
revenue to the government 
from the whisky industry — 
now face the hardship of 
unemployment 

He can only hope that 
people wifi remember tbe posi- 
tive achievements be has been 
associated with, fan-fading the 
£1 million roll-on roll-off ter- 
minal which the 116 islanders

success in recent by-elections. 
Mrs Jean McGavin, the SNP 
candidate defended the seat 18 
months ago at the by-election 
which came after the SNP 
councillor’s resignation. The 
party has done well here 
before* 

They believe Mr MacMil- 
lan's switch to the Tories could 
cost him tbe seat, as he was 
only 50 votes ahead of the 
Alliance last time. The SNP 
shares some attractive policies 
with the Alliance — road 
equivalent tariffs for sea trans- 
port between die islands, and 
local government devolved to a 
community council level Some 
voters could wonder about the 
realistic chance of such

North Yorkshire Council was

but as a spectacular achieve- 
ment of the Rydale by-elec- 
tion with tbe credit going to all

Without a specific commit-

it is thought likely that legisla-

firmer form than a consulta- 
tive paper. Bn Mr Fowler did 
indicate that a reform of child 
care law should aot wait for 
the introduction of a family 
court, as some had suggested. 
The creation of a family court 
is thought unlikely within five 
years. 

There was an advantage in 
“not delaying desirable im- 
provements fa child care law 
pending the possible introduc- 
tion of a family court”.

retory to the legal group of tbe

of stress 


By Nicholas Tim mins. Social Services Correspondent

National Health Service dear. “There isa myth among. the 

profession and among wider 
society of the nuise as the 


yet there is a “conspiracy of 
silence" about the problem, a 
leading specialist said 
yesterday. . 

Almost a third of nurses fell 
to complete their training, and 
the profession has high rales 
of sickness absence, with high 
staff turnover, compared with 
that for teachers and soda! 
workers. 

The . suicide rale among 
nurses is “almost at the top of 
the league" and five or six 
times that of teachers and 
social workers. Nurses smoke 
heavily and have a shorter life 
expectancy than comparable 
groups, Mr Peter Hingley. 
Director of Nursing Studies at 
Bristol Polytechnic, said at the 
launch of a study of stress in 
500 senior nurses from ward 
sister level and above. 

Mr Hingley, director of a 
special project on stress in 
nurse managers financed by 
the King's Fund, an indepen- 
dent health research centre, 
added that about 20,000 
nurses, or at leas 5 percent of 
the workforce, are off sick at 
any one lime, according to 


iny on 
yfficral 


official' figures. Some studies 
suggested that sickness ab- 
sence runs at 12.per cent 
Yet nurses and the public 


nurse as 
angel.Therc is the belief that 
the; nurse, because of her 
calling and the sacrifices she 
rtiakes to the care of others, 
does not possess the feelings 
and weaknesses and frailties of 
the general population. The 
‘supemurse* cannot be affect- 
ed bysuch things as stress.’' . 

-Nurses themselves had ac- 
cepted the myth by denying 
that there was a problem in the 
face of mounting evidence, 
and by rejecting it as a failure 
of the individual rather than 
of the profession. 

He added that the difficul- 
ties nurses face from stress 
were well defined 25 years ago 
by Isabel Menzies, a psycho- 
analyst at the Tavistock 
Clinic 

She had saidTThe nurse 
protects herself from these 
pressures and anxieties by a 
distancing process from her 
work, from her patients, from 
her colleagues and by deper- 
sonalization of her patients, 
treating them as objects and 
things ratherthan individuals, 
leading in the end-lo loss of the 
caring aspects of her tradition- 
al rote." 

But while that , work had 


prompted many studies in the 
United States. leading to defi- 
nition of the “burn-out" syn- 
drome. only two large-scale 
studies had been undertaken 
in Britain. 


Mf Hingley is working with 
Guy's Hospital. London, and 
Fretichay Hospital. near. Bris- 
tol. to devise asimpteques- 
lionnairelo establish the level 
of. stress among nursing staff, 
so that health authorities can 
identify problems and find 
solutions.-. He said that the 
study published yesterday of 
500 senior nurses showed that 
85 per cent felt that they were 
overloaded at work; 

Staff shortages, or a ratio or 
too many unqualified toquah- 
fied staff led more than 30 per 
cent of managers to. say that 
they faced “considerable" or 
“extreme-" pressure. . 

Although stress could be 
positive. Mr Hingley said, and 
two-thirds of the nurses said 
they were satisfied' or very 
satisfied with their work, one 
in six was dissatisfied, and one 
in six admitted to frequent 
consideration -not just of 
changing jobs, but of leaving 
nursing.

Funds plea 
from food 
exporters 

ByJobsYowg 
Agrkadhire Correspondent 

Food from Britain, a mar- 
keting organization estab- 
lished in 1983 to promote, 
exports, yesterday gave the 
farming and food manufactur- 
ing industries another- two 
months to pitnride guarantees ' 
of future funding. 

It had set a deadline of April 
30, but has now extended h to 
the end of June, primarily to 
allow the National Farmers' 
Union io conducta poll of 
cereal growers on whether 
they will support a levy. 

Food from Britain wants a 
guaranteed annual budget of 
£4,800.000. of which £3 mil- 
lion win be provided by the 
Government this year and 
£2 million in 1987-88. 

But the Government has 
said it expects the industry to 
provide the funds thereafter 
and. judged on the present 
lack of enthusiasm, this is in 
serious doubt

ln the past : two months 
drivers involved inaccidenls m

All 21 drivas so for offered 
the choice have taken it up. Mr 
Frank Wallace, aged 64, said 
yesterday be accepted after his 
first aeddent in 32 years of 
driving. ' 

“It was a tremendous shock, 
a Wow to my pride. So, 
although I still do not think I 
was at fault I opted for the 
police driving course to check 
my driving technique and I 
suppose to restore my 
confidence," he said. 

- Mr Edward Griffith, assis- 
tant chief constable, said: “We 
are trying to demonstrate to

He said that, if the law was 
changed, offenders could 
“jump the gun" and go to a 
remedial centre before their 
case went to court. In that way 
they might be ride to reduce

Mr Griffiths said the aim of 
the experiment was to improve

Get tough 
call on car 
tax cheats 

By Richard Evans 
Lobby Reporter 

Tough measures against 
those who avoided paying an 
estimated £99 million in Ve- 
hicle Excise Duty during the 
past 12 months, were demand- 
ed -yesterday by Sir Gordon 
Downey, the Comptroller and 
Auditor General. 

In a National Audit Office 
report he says the rate of 
evasion — equivalent to 4 per 
rent of the revenue due — 
remains “unacceptably high". 
Although the Department of 
Transport had taken steps to 
tackle road tax cheats. Sir 
Gordon says: “Further con- 
tinuing measures are needed, 
particularly against persistent 
offenders." 

He adds: “The penalties 
imposed on evaders remain 
inadequate^ and the Depart- 
ment of Transport should 
continue to exert pressure for 
more realistic penalties 
A study by Department of 
Transport officials has shown: 
about 2.200 million owners 
evade .duty at some time 
during the year. London is the 
nation's . evasion bfackspot 
evasion rates were higher for 
older cars, particularly when 
driven by young men. 

The department "how 
spends about £7 million a year 
on enforcement of Vehicle 
Excise Duty. 

The inquiry disclosed that 
in 1985 the average fine 
imposed on licence evaders 
was £47. compared with a 
maximum available penalty 
of £500 for private cars. 

“The courts sometimes im- 
posed fines as low as £2. and 
the NAO examination, dis- 
closed no case where the 
maximum fine of £500 had 
been imposed." the report 
says. 


No soft soaping fans 


Bv a Staff Reporter 


Television soap opera fens 
are not gullible: A survey by a 
market survey organization. 
The Research Business, shows 
that viewers remain acutely 
perceptive and observant 
while watching soaps. 

They noticed, for example, 
that the same two people 
walked across the lobby of the 
Mirage hotel m each episode 
of Dynasty, and -that 
South fork, home of the 
wealthiest family in Texas, 
had no front door, obliging 


everyone in Dallas to come 
and leave by the patio. 

It was also remarked that no 
one was ever seen eating at the 
Ewing ranch, although much 
action revolved around meals. 
The reason was believed to be 
that someone .at. the table 
always got angry and left the 
room or, more often, the 
patio. 

US soaps were perceived as 
fantasy, while British series 
were thought to reflect reality.

Seargill harassment denied 


Police who arrived outside 
the home of Mr Arthur Scar- 
gilL, the miners' leader, in fonr 
patrol cars denied yesterday 
that the exercise was “to make 
him sweat a bit". 

The High Court m Man- 
chester heard Mr Michael 
Mansfield, representing Mr 
Seargill. say to a poGce officer: 
"1 put it plainly. What was 
going on was a bit of low level 
harassment, to make him 
sweat. 

"That was the attitude. A 
man who you may have 
thought was too big for bis 
boots. Never mind picket lines 
— ‘We will keep him in line.' Is 
there any possibility of that?" 


Police Constable David 
Lawrence, aged 26, replied: 
“Not at all." 

Mr ScargHl is suing South 
Yorkshire police for exempla- 
ry damages by claiming he was 
wrongfully imprisoned outside 
his borne near Barnsley by 
police wanting to question him 
about an alleged speeding of- 
fence. 

Another officer who attend- 
ed the scene, PC Ian Seargill 
(no relation) was asked by Mr 
Mansfield: “Was there a sug- 
gestion you wanted to meet a 
great man? No remote possi- 
bility you went there because 
he had the same name as your- 
self and was a famous man?" 


PC Seargill: “No sir." He 
also denied be thought Mr 
Seargill “was a controversial 
man you liked or disliked". 

A further denial of police 
attitude came from Sgt John 
Beattie, aged 41, who had been 
asked by Mr Mansfield: “I 
suggest you are not telling the 
truth. I think you were there to 
keep Mr Seargill outside his 
home as a bit of aggression." 

PC Lawrence had said earli- 
er that Mr ScargiU had not 
complained about waiting out- 
side his home. "We were 
talking normally, just the 
same as it would have been 
passing the time of day." 

The hearing continues to- 
day. 


Protest at 
plan to 
import 
chickens 


By John Young 
Agriculture Correspondent 

The National Farmers' 
Union has wrinen ro Mr 
Bernard Matthews, the Nor- 
folk-based poultry producer, 
protesting at his decision to 
import thousands of chickens 
which he intends to sell for 
less than £ I each. 

The deal has been agreed 
with Doux, of Chateau I in. 
France's largest frozen chick- 
en producer. The birds are 
understood to have been des- 
tined originally for markets in 
the Middle East 

The announcement by Mr 
Matthews coincided with the 
annual meeting in London of 
the British D ouluy Federa- 
tion. of which he is a former 
president. There was anger 
yesterday among federation 
members. . 

Mr Matthews has. in the 
past, been a leading critic of 
cheap imports. 

Mr Maurice Stokes, the 
federation chairman, said yes- 
terday that on present evi- 
dence many importers could 
compete only because they 
flouted EEC legislation. “Un- 
less Community standards are 
enforced, not only is the 
British poultry industry going 
to be damaged but the house- 
wife is going to be conned also 
into buying a product which 
does not provide value for 
money."

‘Wanton’ killer hunted 


Wiltshire police are hunting 
a “senseless and wanlon" 
killer after a ■ girl aged 15 
came home to find her mother 
and six-month-old sister beat- 
en and butchered to death. 

Linda Sutcliffe found her 
mother. Jeanne, aged 39. and 
her sister Heidi, almost decap-

her father. Mr Paul Sutcliffe, 
and broiher and sisier. aged 14

Weslbury- 

Detective Superimcndem 
Tony Burden, who is leading 
the hunk said: “ Whatever the 
motives for killing Mrs 
Sutcliffe, the brutal attack on 
Heidi was senseless and 
wanton." 



There was a time, back in 
the progressive Sixties, when if 
you’d spent your youth frequent- 
ing the Eton branch of Coutts 
in your bumfreezer, your 
chances of securing a Tory seat 
were severely handicapped. 

But the pendulum swings. 
Today there are forty-two Old 
Etonian Tories in the Commons. 

That means over ten per 
cent upper crust. Or does it? 

In this weeks Spectator

PRISONS 


The National Executive 
Committee of the Prison 
Officers - Association had been 
invited to talks at the Home 
Office with a view to the 
simultaneous calling off of 
industrial action and the institu- 
tion of discussions about the 
agenda for the future. Mr Doug- 
las Hurd, the Home Secretary, 
said in a Commons statement 
about disturbances in the pris- 
ons caused by the prison 
officers' dispute. 

The agenda (he added) was: 

• rapid settlement of this year's 
pay claim, including the 
outstanding question of a reduc- 
tion in the working week for 
prison officers; 

® immediate payment of tax 
compensation on housing allow- 
ance for I^SSSb: 
e bringing forward as fast as 
possible work on new shift 
systems and pay arrangements 
for detailed discussion with the 
POA. with a view io the new 
arrangements being in place by 
April 1 487. He added that that 
was ihe crucial point. 

Earlier, the Prime Minister 
had also expressed pleasure that 
the prison officers had called off 
action. 

Mr Hurd said there would need 
to be an inquiry into the 
disturbances. The form and 
scope of this (he said) will have 
to be compatible with any police 
investigation into alleged 
offences. 

Prison governors are in touch 
with their local chief officers of 
police about the situation in 
their establishments. 

.After consultations with me. 
the acting President of the 
Association of Chief Police Offi- 
cers has opened the National 
Information Centre at New 
Scotland Yard to collate and 
disseminate information relat- 
ing to the police involvement in 
the current prisons disputes 
The Secretary of State for 
Defence (Mr George Younger) 
has ordered preparations in case 
military camps are needed to 
house prisoners as a result of the 
destruction of prison 
accommodation. 

Arrangements have been 
made to ensure a coordinated 
response by all Government 
departments to the present diffi- 
cult situation. 

Although some of the violent 
action by prisoners may have 
been imitative, there is linle 
doubt that the occasion for it 
was the overtime ban instituted 
by the National Executive 
Committee of the Prison 


been appalled at the savagery understand that Mr Jenkins 
of last night's events and also may be sensitive about that, 
at the widespread nature of the but it has nothing to do with 
anarchy which has prevailed. this issue. 

We deplore and condemn the Mr Gerald Berm mg ham (Si : 
violence and would like more Helens South. Lab) said thaL in j 
information as soon as it is the absence of welfare services. j 
available about the report of recreational and other facilities 


industry during Commons drm. If any request comes from 
questions on the Soviet nudear that country for help io regard to 


two deaths at Northcye. 

What we need is an early 
resolution of this dispute. It is 
here, especially after last night's 
events which could and should 
have been foreseen, that the 
Home Secretary has 
inescapable responsibility. 

The only people who can 
remove the mandate for 
industrial action are the 
membership of the POA. In 
order for them to be able to do 
that they need to have placed 
before them a package from the 
Home Secretary for the 
membership to consider. 

I strongly urge the Home 
Secretary io instruct his 
officials immediately to get in 
touch with the POA national 
executive so they can discuss 
with them the basis for a 
possible agenda for talks. 

1 hope the Home Secretary 
will lake such constructive 
action urgently because a 
renewal of last night's arson 
and anarchy is too grim for 
anyone to contemplate. 

Mr Hurd: 1 welcome the 
change in his tone. He asked 
about reports of deaths at 



Jenkins: Governors should 
run the prisons 

Northeye. There were such 
reports, they came from a 
prisoner coming out 
Since the authorities regained 
control at Northeye they have 
made thorough searches of the 
premises and have not been 
able to substantiate the reports. 
If there is any change in that, it 
wiff have to be made known at 
once. 

At the begining of this week I 
found myself in procedural 
discussions with the POA and 
there was talk of suspending 


Officers* Association as part of action then, but particularly 
its dispute about manning levels damaging action had got under 


with the Prison Department. 

This both increased the pros- 
pect of trouble in the prisons 
and reduced the resources avail- 
able to deal with it. 

I believe (he said) that not 
only the public but many mem- 
bers of the Prison Officers’ 
.Association will have been ap- 
palled by the events of the last 
24 hours. 

1 therefore welcome the de- 
cision of the National Executive 
Committee of the POA to 
suspend its industrial action to 
allow talks at the Home Office 
to lake place. 

The POA asked in a statement 
for a reciprocal gesture, asking 
us to allow staff to work 
normally and lift threats of 
suspension. 

There should be no difficulty 
about this. Staff temporarily 
relieved from duty, that is to say 
suspended, can lift their own 
suspension by agreeing to work 
normally. We cannot start sub- 
stantive' negotiations until the 
threat of industrial action has 
been removed. 

Many of us (she said) were 
appalled that they ever took il 

Mr Hurd concluded his state- 
ment by saying he hoped the 
POA NEC would respond pos- 
itively to the package he had 
announced and that the talks he 
had set in hand would find a 
way through present difficulties. 

1 shall be doing everything I 
can to ensure that the control 
that has been regained in our 
prisons is maintained and that a 
constructive way forward is 
found from this destructive 
dispute. 

Mr Gerald Kaufman, chief 
Opposition spokesman on 
home affairs: The country has 


way in Gloucester and I 
learned it was instigated by the 
POA. 

You cannot run substantial 
negotiations under these 
conditions and that is why I 
made the suggestion, and I 
hope he will Imd merit in it, 
ofa simultaneous removal of 
industrial action, taking 
account of the point about the 
rules, and agreement on 
methods of starting discussions 
on the agenda I set up. 

Mr Leon Brittan (Richmond, 
Yorks. CL a former Horae 
Secretary, said it was 
reasonable to ensure that the 
vastly increased resources spent 
by the Government on the 
prison service were properly 
managed and not wasted on 
excessive overtime. 

After what happened last 
night, the POA would forfeit 
the support of those most 
sympathetic to them unless the 
threat of industrial action was 
not just suspended but clearly 
withdrawn. 

Mr Hard: 1 agree. 

Mr Roy Jenkins (Glasgow. 
Hiflhead. SDP): He has dearly 
been right to stand firm on the 
position that it must be the 
prison governors, subject to the 
rules of the Home Office 
endorsed by (his House, and 
not the POA, who are 
responsible for running the 
prisons. There is one person 
above all who is responsible for 
the politicization of the law 
and order issue and that is Mr 
TebbiL 

Mr Hurd: 1 do not read Mr 
Tebbit's remarks in that way. 
Mr Tcbbit was drawing 
attention to the results of some 
of the social legislation Mr 
Jenkins introduced. I 


the POA had a credible case in 
seeking increased numbers to 
combine adequate and proper 
care for long-term prisoners. 

Mr Hurd: Certainly the balance 
of tbe population in prison 
changes as we implement a 
sensible policy of keeping in 
prison longer those with 
particularly severe sentences 
for particularly heinous crimes. 

The aim of our spending 
programme both as regards 
prison places and prison 
officers is designed not just to 
keep pace with prison 
population but to tackle the 
problem of overcrowding. 

Mr Charles Morrison (Devizes. 
CY It is high time i prison 
officers lived up to titeir sense 
of duty and responsibility and 
negotiated responsibly, 
particularly as their level of 
salary is now second only to 
(hat of news primers in the 
national earnings survey. 

To reassure members of the 
public who live in the vicinity 
of prisons would he review 
procedures for security in 
prisons in case of emergency so 
that the chances of escape in 
future are less likely? 

Mr Hurd: I agree. I certainly 
agree that the inquiry which 
will be necessary will have to 
encompass the point about 
security. 

Mr Terence Davis 
(Birmingham. Hodge Hill, 
Lab): He said it has been 
necessary for the police to be 
involved at several prisons in 
the past 24 hours. Have any of 
these officers been issued with 
guns? 

Mr Hard: Not to my 

knowledge. 

Mr Alexander Carlile 

(Montgomery, L) asked if 
anyone had been injured and 
said the decision by the POA 
to return to work was a 
sufficient gesture for talks to 
be resumed without any 
further pre-conditions. It 
might be wise to have talks 
with a view to a no-strike 
agreement 

Mr Hurd: There, have been a 
number of minor injuries but 
I know so far of no major 
injuries. It is something 
approaching a miracle that 
people were not very badly 
hurt or worse last night 

I answered a question 
yesterday about a no-strike 
agreement — and I think it 
would have to be agreement 
— but many people in all 
pans of the House will be 
attracted by that idea. 

Mr John Wheeler 
(Westminster North. C): Will 
he remind the POA that they 
are a uniformed service of 
the Crown and their 
industrial behaviour imposes 
upon other uniformed 
services of the Crown, such 
as the police and perhaps the 
armed services, an obligation 
to pick up their failings? 

Mr Hurd: J agree. The point 
comes with particular force 
from him as a former prison 
governor. 

Replying to a later question 
about alternatives to custody, 
Mr Hurd said: We cannot 
direct the courts who should go 
to prison or who not, but 
where the courts can be 
persuaded that there are tough 
and practical alternatives to 
custody for minor offences. 1 
hope they will take that course. 
Mr Nicholas Soames (Crawley. 
C) said prison officers involved 
in the action had showed gross 
and inexcusable dereliction of 
duty. 

Mr Harry Ewing (Falkirk East. 
Labi said the problem would 
not be solved by negotiations 
between prison governors and 
assistant governors and the 
Association of Chief Police 
Officers because a major 
problem was that prison 
officers could not become a 
governor or assistant governor, 
most of whom were direct 
entrants from the Wakefield 
college. 


Police not so quick to tell 
relatives after arrests 

By Frances Gibb. Legal Affairs Correspondent 


The promptness with which 
the police notify - relatives of 
the arrest and detention of a 
suspect when requested to do 
so is deteriorating, particular- 
ly in London, according to 
Home Office statistics. 

In the metropolitan area, 
the number of such requests 
not dealt with within four 
hours rose by about 50 per 
cent to 311 in the first six 
months of I9S5. compared 
with 211 in the first half of 
1984. 

Outside the London metro- 
politan area, the police failed 
to fulfil 1.257 requests to 
notify suspects* relatives, a 4 
per cent increase on 19S4. It 
came after increases of 7 per 
cent and 20 per cent in the two 
previous years. 


I he total figure for 1985 
was still "only about one in a 
thousand of the total number 
of arrests", a Home OfFice 
statistical bulletin said. 

The bulletin said thaL in 
exceptional cases, requests 
were not dealt with for more 
than 24 hours, in 1985. 80 
such delays were recorded in 
5 1 cases outside London, few- 
er than in the past two years, 
and less than one in 10.000 
arrests. 

But in the London metro- 
politan area, the number of 
notifications not carried out 
within 24 hours because of 
special circumstance s rose 
from 18 in the first half of 
1 9g4 to 34 for the same period 
last year. 

Police forces varv in the 


number and proportion of 
cases in which notification of 
relatives is delayed. Half the 
police forces outside the Lon- 
don metropolitan area record- 
ed less than one delay of tour 
hours or more in every 1 .000 
arrests. A further 12 recorded 
between one and two delays 
per 1.000 arrests and nine 
recorded more than two per 
1 . 000 . 

The City of London had the 
highest rate of delayed notifi- 
cation. but its police force 
dealt with only a small num- 
ber of arrests. 

Suspects have a right to 
have someone notified of their 
arrest without more delay 
than necessary under Section 
62 of the Criminal Law Act 
1977. 


Language difficulty in riot inquiry 


Interpreters were yesterday 
helping detectives to establish 
ihe background to a gang fight 
in Bradford Moor. West Y ork- 
shire. Police believe that a 
simmering feud between rival 
groups erupted into a not 
between .Asians, armed with 
axes and pitchforks. None of 


those allegedly involved in the 
fighting speaks English. 

Witnesses watched as two 
cars swerved Into a street and 
six men leapt out to begin the 
battle. Minutes later one man 
was killed and four others 
were badly injured. 

Detectives, who said they 


did not think the fighting had 
a racial motive, identified the 
dead man as Mr Talib 
Hussain, a father of three 
children, in his mid-thirties, of 
Hollings Road, Bradford. Lasi

fighting were still being ques- 
tioned by police. .

Mrs Thatcher; The report of the

the inquiry and cannot go

which have arisen since the 
inquiry.

Mrs Thatcher said she agreed

She hoped that all the details 
of the terrible accident would

I agree (she added) with Mr

other point. Knowing 
something of what has

Judgment of 
court is 
welcomed 


AIR FARES 

The Government was very 
pleased with the decision of the 
European Court of Justice yes- 
terday on air fares, which con- 
finncd a view the Government 
had had for a long time that 
competition also applied to air 
fares, Mrs Thatcher, (he Prime 
Mininster, said during Com- 
mons questions. 

The people of Britain owed a 
debt to the Secretary of State for 
Transport (Mr Nicholas Ridley) 
for Us strenoons efforts to 
reduce air fares and further 
advance competition instead of 
rigging the market. 

She was replying to Mr David 
Atkinson (Bournemouth East, 
C) who in referring to 
yesterday’s ruling by 'the Euro- 
pean Court of Justice against 
price fixing of European air 
fares, asked: Does this not now 
pave Ihe way al least for 
competition to bring down the 
level of these fares to the kind of 
level long enjoyed in (he United 
States? 

Will the Government now 
discuss with Lord King as to the 
lead British Airways should set 
in this respect? 

• In the House of Lords, the 
Earl of Caithness. Under Sec- 
retary of Stale for Transport, 
said at question tune that the 
ruling was generally helpful to 
the Goveramment's efforts to 
secure liberalisation of air trans- 
port in Europe. 

We particularly welcome the 
fact (he said) that the court has 
made dear beyond doubt what 
we have said all along, that EEC 
competition rules apply to 
aviation. 


More women should get allowance 


INVALID CARE 

Legal opinion bad advised that 
if the Government were found 
to discriminate against women 
in the European Court in June 
and did not pay invalid care 
allowance to eligible women 
regardless of whether they 
claimed backdated to 
December 1984. then the 
Government would be acting 
unlawfully. Mr Michael 
Meacher, chief Opposition 
spokesman on social services, 
said when opening an 
Opposition debate on caring 
for the carers. 

Moving an Opposition 
motion demanding invalid care 
allowance be made available to 
married women carers, he said 
the Government now had an 
undeniable duty to pay the 
allowance to married and co- 
habiting women. The motion 
also called for adequate respite 
care, and a flexible system of 


cash and other appropriate 
support services, such as home 
helps and home nursing. 

There were an estimated 5.5 
million people caring for 
disabled and elderly relatives at 
home. Carers saved the state 
something like £5,000 million. 

Labour would extend invalid 
care allowance to married and 
co-habiting women; appoint a 
carers' liason officer to each 
social services department to 
identify carers and assess their 
needs; and seek to provide 
respite care and a flexible 
system of other support and 
services for carers. 

Mr Barney Hayfaoe, Minister 
for Health, moving a long 
Government amendment 
which said the European 
judgement, not expected until 
June, would be carefully 
considered, explained that 
extending tbe invalid care 
allowance to married women 
would cost an estimated £100 
million a year, net of savings to 
other benefits. 


Talks could start soon 


ULSTER 

Exploratory discussions coaid 
begin shortly with the two 
Northern Ireland Unionist 
leaders to see whether a 
framework for dialogue can be 
established as suggested by the 
Prune Minister on April 16, 
Mr Tom King. Secretary of 
State for Northern Ireland, said 
daring questions in the 
Commons. 

Mr David Alton (Liverpool, 
Mossley Hill, L): While 
welcoming that, does he sot 
think that, given the 
willingness of the SDLP and 


the Alliance parties in 
Northern Ireland both to enter 
into discussions without pre- 
conditions, that Ihe time has 
come to fix a date for the talks 
10 begin? 

Mr King: First we have to see 
whether, in view of the 
situation in which the two 
major Unionist parties find 
themselves, if it is possible for 
such a framework to be 
established. That is the first 
objective.

More prison officers appointed 


When he raised the issue 
earlier with the Prime Minister. 
Mr Neil Kinnoek, Leader of the 
Opposition, said; Now that the 
prison officers have suspended 
their industrial action and 
thereby given further evidence 
of their goodwill and sense of 
responsibility, why is the Gov- 
ernment adding stubbornness (o 
ns original folly and refusing to 
talk with the prison officers? 
Mrs Thatcher I am pleased the 
prison officers have called off 
their action. Many of us were 
appalled that they ever took it. It 
has been salutary for them and 
one would like to say thank you 
to the governors who stayed at 
their posts, io the police who did 
likewise and the police who 


Fire at 
chemical 
centre 

Bv Michael Horsnell 

A fire caused hundreds of 
thousands of pounds of dam- 
age at Porton Down. Wilt- 
shire. where the Ministry' of 
Defence secret chemical de- 
fence establishment is based, 
it was confirmed yesterday. 

But it was confined by 
firemen to a suite of rooms in 
the neighbouring Centre for 
Applied Microbiology and Re- 
search. an operation run for 
the Department of Health and 
Social Security, which re- 
placed the former germ war- 
fare establishment in 1979. 

Dr Peter Sutton, director of 
the centre, said; "We handle 
infectious organisms here as 
pan of our work For the DHSS 
but that pan of the centre was 
not affected by the fire. There 
has been no release of infec- 
tious organisms and no hazard 
io ihe public. Secret work is no 
longer carried out here except 
in the commercial sense." 

The fire wrecked rooms 
used in pharmaceutical pro- 
duction and smoke damaged 
biochemical laboratories

About 25 firemen took an 
hour to bring the fire under 
control on Wedncsdav. 


backed up the whole operation. 
Mr Kinnoek: The governors 
have strong sympathy with the 
conditions and difficulties that 
the prison officers face day to 
day when the rise in the number 
of prisoners vastly exceeds the 
rise in the number of officers. 

Unless the Government 
shows a more rational attitude 
than we have seen so far, 
industrial action will come 
about simply because of the 

K ressure in the prisons. 

Irs Thatcher referred to Gov- 
ernment measures io increase 
facilities in the prison service. 

The Labour Government had 
ignored all prison building. This 
Government had instituted the 
largest prison building pro- 


gramme in history. Spending on 
prison building was up by 400 
per cent- Spending on the prison 
service had been increased 85 
per cent in real terms. 

Mr Kinnoek was wrong. The 
Government had increased the 
number of prison officers by 
more than 3.000, 1 8 per cent at a 
time when the number of pris- 
oners had gone up by 12 per 
cenL 

Mr Kinnoek asked the Prime 
Minister to tell him why Mr 
Sidney Powell, secretary of the 
governors' association, should 
say that the 12 percent popula- 
tion increase meant an extra 
5.000 prisoners and the 18 per 
cent staff increase was about 
2,500 officers. 


Hie judgement would be 
made the subject of a report to 
the House. 

Labour made promises to 
spend more, irrespective of 
whether they were beyond the 
capacity of the country to fulfiL 
Mr Mcacher’s commitment to 
spend £100 million a year on 
extending the invalid care 
allowance was on top of the 
£24 billion worth of 
commitments already made by 
Labour. How were they going 
to fund this? 

Mr Meacher said the £24 
billion figure was a fabrication. 
As for tbe £100 million on 
invalid care allowance, there 
would be a net saving when 
more people were kept in the 
community. 

Mr Hayhne said Mr Meacher 
was now not promising to 
spend any more money on this 
problem at all, yet his 
colleagues were constantly 
demanding the Government 
did spend more. 


NI Assembly 
MPs could 
lose pay 

There was great force in the 
argument (bat those who failed 
to take up their seats in the 
Northern Ireland Assembly 
should not continue to draw 
their salaries and the matter 
was being looked at very 
carefully, Mr Tom King, 
Secretary of State for Northern 
Ireland, said during Commons 
questions. 

He also said there was no 
point in perpetuating an 
Assembly beyond the end of its 
natural life in October, or even 
allowing it to continue as long 
as that, if it was failing.

t errorism 

There has keen no lessening of 
the determination of the Ulster 
security forces to fight 
terrorism. Mr Tom King, 
Secretary of State for Northern 
Ireland, insisted during 
Commons questions. 

In the past six days alone, be 
added, ilr weapons and 
1,7- Allbs of explosives have 
been recovered. 

Mr Timothy \eo (Sooth 
Suffolk. C) bad asked him to 
make dear, above all to 
Northern Ireland extremists 
resorting to violence in tbeir 
efforts to undermine the Anglo- 
Irish agreement, that the 
Government had no intention of 
being deflected from its purpose 
in signing, even if there were to 
be a temporary deterioration in 
the secoriry situation. 

Mr King: From tbe evidence of 
tbe past few days, onr 
determination to root ant 
terrorism from wherever It 
comes shoald be dear enough 
to everybody. Onr very 
successes in the past few days 
and tbe scale of the bombs 
involved are the dearest 
indication of the size of tbe 
threat we still face. 

Mr Dale CampbeM-Savoms 
(Workington, Lab): How is tbe 
security situation helped by the 
availability of kidnap 
insurance? 1 have a letter 
written by Sedgwick (UK) 
Limited, a City of London 
insurance company, _ offering 
kidnap and extortion insurance 
to a prominent citizen in 
Northern Ireland. 

What is he going to do about 
H? Does be Intend to tarn a 
blind eye or does he accept that 
be has a duty as a minister 
committed to some restoration 
of peace in Northern Ireland to 
intervene and prevent the sale 
of these policies oa the open 
market? 

Mr King asked Mr Campbell- 
Savonrs to send him a copy of 
tbe letter. It is an offence in 
Northern Ireland (he went on) 
to pay money by way of ransom 
to any proscribed organization. 

1 take a strong view. This 
question goes much wider than 
tbe one be raised. The whole 
matter of rackets, extortion and 
protection is something on 
which. I beOeve, we should take 
tbe strongest possible action.

Picture of James Watt 
finds national home 

By Geraldine Norman , Sale Room Correspondent 


The Scottish National Gal- 
lery spent £41.040 (estimate 
£ 1 0.000-£ 1 5.000) on Wednes- 
day night for an 8fi portrait of 
James Wau. whose pioneering 
work on the steam engine led 
to the adoption of his name as 
a measure of energy and 
ushered in Britain's industrial 
revolution. 

The portrait, which they 
bought at Christie's auction in 
the Edinburgh Assembly 
Rooms, shows Watt at work 
on the Newcomen steam en- 
gine. which belonged to Glas- 
gow University. 

It is a lamplit scene with 
Watt, dividers in hand, lean- 
ing across from a table of 
working drawings to gaze at 
ihe engine on his other side. 
The lighting., reminiscent of 
Caravaggio, combined with 
scientific invention, echoes 
Joseph Wright of Derby’s 
famous studies of science, 
which (he artist was dearly 
imitating. It is the work of 
James Eckford Lauder. (1811- 
1869). a little-known Scottish 
artist. The picture sale was 


Christie's most successful yet 
in Scotland, totalling 
£1.050.213, with only 3 per 
cent unsold. The reason was a 
happy combination of higb- 
quality Scottish paintings. 

The unexpected price of the 
sale was the £45.360 (estimate 
£L000-£ 1.500) for John 
Maxwell's "Circus Pony" of 
1941, a Chagallesque combina- 
tion of pony, flowers and 
circus girl. Christie's ex- 
plained that Maxwell’s work is 
rarely on the market and they 
had no guidelines for pricing 
it 

By (he end of the morning 
session of Christie's lengthy 
Amsterdam sale of the cargo 
of ihe Geldermalsen. the pro- 
ceeds had topped the £7 
million mark. The sensation 
of the morning was the com- 
petition for blue and white 
lapering butter tubs, with 
domed covers and landscape 
decoration. Four pairs of them 
secured 37.120 florins 
(£10.032) apiece, or 22 limes 
the pre-sale estimate.

its biggest capital maintenance 
programme, Mr Nicholas Rid- 
ley, Secretary of State for 
Transport, said yesterday. 

Some 80 miles of motorway 
would be renewed, reducing 
the backlog by 10 miles, and 
185 miles of trunk road, he 
told the British Aggregates and 
Construction Materials Indus- 
try in London. 

Mr Ridley said that not as 
much had been spent on road 
maintenance in recent years as 
the Government would have 
liked, but if the present renew- 
al programme was main- 
tained, the backlog in road 
maintenance would be elimi- 
nated by the early 1990s.

problem 


IfyLocy Hodge$ 


New evidence of a universi- 
ty oraro-foain is published 
tooay in a report from inde- 
pendent consultants who say 
that standards of research and 
tescfaing in British universities 
are at risk because high-calibre 
stair are not applying for 
academic posts and 
lecturers are leaving. 

British universities lost 
1.404 staff in the academic 
year, 1984-85, and replace- 
ments are hard to find, accord- 
ing to the report from PA 
consultants. 

Morale among academics is 
said to be at rock bottom, and 
tne supply of future graduate 
recruits to industry and com- 
merce is in jeopardy. 

Dr David Ingram, vice- 
chancellor of Kent University, 
said: “American universities 
made it clear that they expect 
to solve their difficulties in 
recruiting new staff by taking 
people from Britain's 
universities. 

“They were very apologetic 
that this poaching was neces- 
sary. But thSy said h was a 
question of survival,” Dr In- 
gram said. ~

Embassy in Washington show

and scientists are entering the 
US from Britain each year. 

The report, which was com- 
missioned by the Association 
of University Teachers and 
the Committee of Vice-Chan- 
cellors and Principals, found 
that low pay and blocked 
promotion were the main 
deterrents to high quality ap- 
plicants for university posts. 

Although new graduate re- 
search staff start on competi- 
tive salaries of between £7,000 
and £8,000, they fell behind 
fairly quickly. 

By the age of 32 the median 
salaries of those working in 
the universities are 44 per- 
cent below those working 
outside and 63 per cent below 
the salaries of “high-flyers'*. . 

University staff report dis- 
satisfaction with their pay, 
deteriorating conditions for 
research, an increasing burden 
of administration and “dis- 
tinct pessimism” about the 
future. 

New recruits to the univer- 
sity system were seen as 
unsatisfectory by one-third of 


the academics surveyed- 
Among those who left the 
system one in five (20.8 
percent) went overseas, and 
•one in 12 went into industry. 

The survey was based on 180 
detailed interviews and 638 
completed questionnaires 
from six universities — Brad- 
ford, Bristol Warwick. Leeds, 
Glasgow and University Col- 
lie London. This exercise 
yielded a 59 per cent response 
rare. 

A total of 192 main employe 
era were surveyed, whh a 38 
percent response rate, and 
detailed interviews were con- 
ducted with the BBC, BP. 
British Aerospace, the Chdl 
Service, IBM, 1C l PA consul- 
tants, Plessey, Wellcome and 
Arthur Young. 

There were signs that the 
brain drain might get worse 
because of the number of 
academics (91 percent) who 
believed they had a chance of 
getting work outside the uni- 
versity system. 

Miss Diana Warwick, gen- 


eral secretary of the AUT, said 
the report showed academics 


to be exploited, poorly re- 
warded and whh sony pros- 
pects. “This dramatic new 
evidence demands a speedy 
response from Government, 
with increased resources to 
save quality and standards,” 
she said. 


The Vice-CbureeBor of Ox- 
ford University, % Patrick 
Nefll QC, has said that the 
university could face legal 
action over its faflnre to mid 
fellowships for 38 academics. 

In a report to the heads of 
Oxford colleges, Sr Patrick 
says some of -the 38 staff, 
mostly university lecturers, 
are becoming impatient afer 
waiting more than a year fora 
college fellowship. 

■‘This is a point on which ire 
are legally vulnerable. It also 
represents, unite simply, an in- 
justice,” he said. . 

The problem has arisen be- 
cause although the oniveimty 
can appoint lecturers, it can 
net insist that a college confers 
« fellowship. Yet, according to 
tiie university's own rules, 
moat lecturers are also added 
to a fellowship. 

. Sr Patrick suggests that a 
panel of “three wise men” 
should be appointed to allo- 
cate lecturers to colleges. 

Bat some of the colleges, 
which insist on their right to 
govern themselves, are likely 
to resist any attempt to force 
them to give fellowships to 
university appointments, in 
spite of Sir Patrick's warning 
that legal advice has confirm- 
ed that “the university's posi- 
tion with regard to the existing 
non-fellows is at best inse- 
cure”. College heads have un- 
to May 19 to respond.

Airlines urged to 
improve safety 
test procedures 


The 90-second evacuation 
time given for passengers to 
escape from aircraft in case of 
an emergency is not long 
enough to save lives, the 
Consumers' Association, 
which yesterday called for a 
review of the current test 
procedure, says. 

In its magazine Holiday 
Which?\t says the “approved" 
time for getting passengers out 
of an aircraft in case of an 
accident is not long enough for 
real emcrgencies. 

Tbe association says that 
many people can become 
unconscious from the effect of 
smoke well within 90 seconds, 
and it criticized the way 
evacuation tests failed to sim- 
ulate accurately true accident 
conditions when panic, smoke 
and injury can slow people 
down. 

“Fire and smoke are the 
major killers in all survjvabte 
plane crashes and passengers 
will be given a greater chance 
for survival if more is done to 


improve safety and escape 
plans,” the report said. 

Among the improvements 
suggested are: 

• Fitting smoke hoods to the 

backs of seats to filter toxic 
fumes; _ 

• Developing new materials 

to use in cabin panels and* 
overhead lockers which do not _ 
give off toxic smoke when 
burnt; : 

• Instructions for passengers 
sealed next to emergency exits 
on how to open them in an 
emergency. 

The Consumers* Associa- ■ 
lion wants these and other 
safety regulations to become ; 
standard international re- 
quirements. * 

The magazine points oat ' 
that flying is still safer than - 
travelling by car. 

Although it says that 1985 - 
was the worst year for deaths £ 
in airline accidents with 2.129 J 
people killed worldwide. 1984 
was one of the safest with 451 S 
deaths. “

“Typically, masting vaccines

In collaboration with re-

Moscow shrugs off nuclear disaster but facts point to a decade of danger 


Complacency reigns as 
Red Square parade 
ignores Chernobyl toll 

- n m • j i nr.iL. 


mm 


From Christopher Walker, Moscow 


The sharp contrast between 
Soviet and Western attitudes 
to the Chernobyl disaster was 
much in evidence yesterday as 
Mr Mikhail Gorbachov, the 
Soviet leader, presided over 
the traditional May Day pa- 
rade through a Red Square 
filled with balloons. 

While the two compounds 
for Westerners were filled with 
anxious conversation about 
health precautions issued by 
embassy doctors, the tens of 
thousands of Soviet partici- 
pants seemed unaware of the 
magnitude of the disaster in 
the Ukraine. 

. Television coverage of the 
parade made no mention, 
direct or indirect, of the 
incident, and none of the 
banners made any reference to 
it Chants over loudspeakers 
delivered strong attacks on the 
US, however, for its recent 
underground midear tests. 

Soviet citizens watching the 
parade in sunshine appeared 
quite unconcerned about the 
potential consequences of ex- 
plosion, some blaming the 
Western press for hysteria and 
exaggeration. 

“The complacency being 
shown is hand to believe. You 
would think that all we were 
talking about was a fire at an 
oil refinery ” said one Ameri- 
can in the cordoned-off view- 
ing section close to Lenin's 
marble tomb. “People appear 
genuinely ignorant about the 
long-term effects of a radia- 
tion leak on this scale."

Rigid code 
of safety 
covers UK 

By David Young 
Energy Correspondent 

The two men at the centre 
of Britain's nuclear energy 
programme claimed yesterday 
that an accident on the scale of 
Chernobyl could never hap- 
pen here because of Britain's 
high safety standards. 

■ Lord Marshall, chairman of 
the Central Electricity Gener- 
ating Board, and Lord King, 
whose company. Babcock, has 
won the construction contract 
for Sizewell nuclear power 
station, were addressing mem- 
bers of the British Nuclear 
Forum. 

Lord Marshall said: “Using 
British safety standards, the 
Russian design wouldn't even 
get past first base". 

He said that when he was 
working as a scientist with the 
UK Atomic Energy Authority 
in the 1960s, he was asked to 
examine Government propos- 
als to build a sophisticated 
version of the Russian design. 
He ruled it out on safety 
grounds. 

Lord King maintained that 
nuclear power was fundamen- 
tal to the prosperity of Britain, 
which had built up standards 
of safety second to none in the 
world and had stuck to them 
rigidly.

gant matching black hat and 
tailored cape, but there was no 
indication whether her choice 
of outfit had any symbolic 
meaning of mourning. The 
concensus among diplomats 
was that it did not. 

Although Mr Gorbachov 
appeared outwardly as confi- 
dent as usual watching the 
columns of workers marching 
by, many Western observers 
believe that his internal and 
external credibility mire have 
been damaged both by his 
handling of the disaster and by 
its long-term economic con- 
sequences.

US “imperialism" and the

Because of the Kremlin's 
reluctance to reveal details of 
toe Chernobyl disaster, and its 
complete failure to issue any 
health warnings to Soviet 
citizens, the concern of West- 
erners — particularly the 
mothers of young children — 
stood out strongly against toe 
festive atmosphere of the 
parade. 

Among the crowds lining 
the route, one middle-aged

Hazards for ten years in massive area 


Sowing the seeds of a deadly harvest 


By Thomson Prentice 

Science Correspondent 

The Chernobyl disaster may 
have sown the seeds erf a 
deadly harvest for millions of 
Russians, scientists said yes- 
terday. A huge area — as big as 
most of England and Scotland 
combined — could be hazard- 
ous for at least a decade. 

Western experts trying to 
assess the blight of radiation 
on the Soviet landscape be- 
lieve that the health, social 
and economic consequences 
could represent a “worst-case 
scenario".

miles of prime agricultural

to be jettisoned because of 
contamination that would take 
many years to decline to safe 
levels. 

One expert said yesterday: 
“The disaster may have creat- 
ed a wasteland in which H 
would be unsafe to raise cattle 
Or other livestock, to grow 
fruit, vegetables and winter 
grains such as wheat and 
barley. Dairy products would 
also be contaminated." 

He said that evacuations 
woe likely to continue on a 
large scale in areas within 50 
miles north of Chernobyl, and 
communities much further 
afield might be forced to 
abandon their collective forms 
and seek resettlement. 

“The total area that is 
seriously contaminated proba- 
bly stretches the equivalent 
distances between Brighton 
and Aberdeen in one direction 
and Brighton and Enter in 
the other," be said. 

A high rate of cancer is 
likely within the several mil- 
lion people now living in that 
area within the next decade, 
another scientist said. 

“The Gist cases, probably of 
leukaemia, may start to 
emerge after three to five 
years," said Dr Mike Thorne, 
British secretary of the Inter- 


national Commission of Ra- 
diological Protection. “A lar- 
ger number of cases Is likely in

Old-fashioned end to Police detain 
Wa'dheim camitaign 

From Richard Bassett, Vienna _ n.a- 


Velvet waistcoats, pink and 
while dirndls, grey suits with 
green facings: Graz enjoys 
dressing up for visiting 
celebrities. 

The second largest city in 
Austria and. with Salzburg, 
that part which gave Hitler his 
most enthusiastic welcome in 
1938, is perhaps not a surpris- 
ing place for Dr Kurt Wald- 
heim to round off his cam- 
paign. 

While toe red paper carna- 
tions of the Socialists and 
thegiant, rather sinister por- 
traits of Dr Waldheim's So- 
cialist rival. Dr Kurt Steyrer, 
were to be seen all over 
Vienna yesterday for May 
Day celebrations, Graz 
drowned any such demonstra- 
tions with the bells of its IS 
baroque churches and a hearty 
welcome for the former UN 
Secretary-General. 

As he and his wife strolled 
among the stalls of the city’s 
celebrated spring trade fair 
yesterday , they were mobbed 
with requests for autographs. 

A small group of tradesmen 
wearing red carnations looked 
on uneasily. But any thoughts 
they might have had of staging 
a spontaneous protest were 
banished by the presence of 
about! a dozen uniformed 
students bearing flags and 
sabres as they drank at a bar. 

“They look really nasty," 
observed a Swedish journalist, 
who had clearly been unaware 
that anything like this could 
exist outside an Erich von 
Stroheim film. “Do Austrian 
students still fight duels with 
sabres?" he asked. 

■ An old man in mackintosh 
and britches, seeing toe 
journalist's interest and his 
pen poised, rushed up to say: 
“Make sure you write the 
truth, the naked truth." 


What was the truth? “Wald- 
heim is the only man to lead 
Austria, and he certainly was 
never a war criminal. 

“You cannot believe the 
World Jewish Congress. I was 
an officer during toe war, and 
believe me the post-war Gov- 
ernment of this country, 
which bad spent most of its 
time in concentration camps, 
would never have given Wald- 
heim a job in 1948 if he had 
really had anything to do with 
toe Nazis." 

Another grey-haired man 
with side-whiskers, who pro- 
fessed himself a monarchist, 
added more convincingly: 
“Look, toe man spent seven 
years in the German Army 
and only made it from ensign 
to first lieutenant. He just 
couldn’t have been a commit- 
ted Nazi." 

“The entire campaign 
against Waldheim is the work 
of the Socialists, who are 
terrified of having to work 
with a President who is not of 
their party." said an expansive 
lady in a dirndl selling frank- 
furters. The students, leaning 
on their sabres, nodded. 

“You see, this is all the 
World Jewish Congress's 
fault," an Austrian journalist 
confided, casting a glance at 
the uniforms. Thanks to them, 
all these “cranks and lunatics" 
were now going to vote for Dr 
Waldheim. 

Like many Austrians who 
are hoping Dr Waldheim will 
win but are not anti -Semitic, 
the journalist was horrified at 
what had happened in Austria 
over the past few weeks. “If he 
wins, he'll win with toe sup- ! 
port of all the wrong people i 
and on the crest of a wave of ; 
some of the most xenophobic 
and ami-semitic feelings this 
country has ever known."

Polish police crush Solidarity’s May Day enthusiasm 


From Roger Boyes, Warsaw 


Mounted riot police in War- 
saw yesterday helped to break 
up a group of several hundred 
demonstrators who were 
chanting “Solidarity!” and 
“Ukraine, Ukraine!", in refer- 
ence to the Soviet nuclear 
explosion. 

A huge force of police, 

bnHtpH by wafts' winnoiK ami 

vehicles with flare and perens- 
skm grenade launchers, sur- 
rounded the church of St 
Stamslaw Kostka in northern 
Warsaw, where Father Jerzy 
POpielnszko, the Solidarity 
priest murdered in 1984 by 
se c re t agents, is bnried- 

The authorities clearly 
wanted to prevent any Solidar- 
ity protest march towards the 
official May Day parade; 
which was being addressed in 
central Warsaw by General 
Jarnzdski, the Polish leader. 

Speaking to toe many thou- 
sands of Communist cele- 
brants, toe General, in civilian 
clothes and his customary 
tinted gbwH' attack ed the 


Reagpn Administration for its 
policy of economic sanctions 
against Poland, for haring 
raided Libya, and for testing 
unclear weapons in Nevada. 

Strict security surrounded 
the official events. Residents 
in the square which accommo- 
dated the main rally been 
warned not to approach their 
windows with any tool or 
kitchen implement that might 
resemble a gnn even remotely. 

Polish television cameras 
were careful to spotlight chil- 
dren taking part in the official 
rallies, perhaps to quash pub- 
lic fear that the radiation 
floating over Poland wifl harm 
the young. Many mothers are 
keeping their children at 
home. 

At toe St Stanislaw Kostka 
Church, the priest drew ap- 
plause in a reference to the 
nuclear incident. “It’s the 
authorities who are to blame 
for ecological disaster," he 
safaL The sermon called for 
workers' rights on the work- 



Mr Walesa: 'uncountable 
cordons’ of police 

ess* holiday, and the priests 
led prayers for toe Ukraine. 

“Go in peace," said the 
elderly parish priest, Father 
Teofft Bogndd. “Do not bo 
intimidated by those who are 


all anmnd us." The riot police 
had stopped jnst short of the 
church gates, a long line of 
perspex shields and visored 
helmets. 

Once through that cordon, 
come hu n dred s of toe c o ngrc- 
gathm broke into chants such 
as “Hands off Afghanistan!" 
Coming up against a wall of 
police, the vanguard sat down 

in toe street. But the mounted 
troopers and other Zomo riot 
units soon scattered toe would- 
be demonstrators. Several 
people were detained, includ- 
ing two British journalists, 

who were later freed. 

The show of force appears to 
have been a commo n response 
in toe traditional Solidarity' 
trouble spots. The government 
spokesman, Mr Jexzy Urban, 
said that there had been 


nize demonstrations in Nona 
Huta, Poznan, Wroclaw and 
Bydgoszcz. He denied that 
police had used force, “except 
in individual cases". No tear 
gas or water jets had been 
used. ' 


Mr Lech Walesa, the Soli- 
darity leader, said on the 
telephone from Gdansk 
“May Day in Gdansk was 
celebrated by uncountable cor- 
dons of Interior Ministry 
workers", a reference to the 
large police presence in toe 
Batticport. 

The sensitivity of the au- 
thorities reflects not only pnb- 
fic disquiet about die radiation 
but. also Warsaw's need to 
show that street unrest has 
been banished from Poland. In 
the lead-up to toe Communist 
Party Congress to Jute and' 
the probable visit of Mr 
Mikhail Gorbachov, the Sovi- 
et leader, a strong law-and- 
order policy has taken root. 

To emphasise the poi n t , 
journalists' assistants and 
Polish film crews working for 
Western networks have been 
warned that they foce dismiss- 
al if caught in an illegal event 
such as a demonstration.

Protest Mid division on May Day: Sooth Africa 

Huge black union stoppage 


From Ray Kenn edy 


South Africa's bfeck trade 
unions yesterday staged the 
“Sgest demonstration of their 
wganized might when hun- 
OTwis of thousands of workers, 
either through conviction or 
persuasion, took the day off in 
answer to calls for a nation- 
wde stayaway- from work 
on May Day. 

For most it meant the Joss 
°t a day's wages. Employers’ 
organizations made dear that 
ibeir policy was “no work; no 
pay . 

The show of onion strength 
was tempered by rival mass 
rallies in Durban organized by 
the 500,000-member Council 
of South African Trade 
Unions (Cosatu) and the Unit* 


ed Worfrere’ Union of South 
Africa (Uwusa), which has 
own launched by the Zulu 
Inkatha movement of Chief 
Maugpsuthu ButhelezL 

Cosatu, an affiliate of the 
United Democratic From 
(uDF), supports sanctions 
and disinvestment and openly 
backs the banned African 
National Congress (ANQ. 

Seventeen Bains were laid 
on to bring Inkatha supporters 
to Uwusa's official launch in a 
Durban soccer stadium. It was 
packed with more than 80,000 
people before Chief Butheteri 
began a marathon speech. 

There was a for smaller 
crowd 'at the Cosatu rally, less 
than a mile away, where the 
key speaker was to have been 
Mrs Winnie Mandela, wife of 
the imprisoned ANC leader. 


She sent a message saying 
that she was unable to get 
there because a family mem- 
ber had been involkved in a 
car accident 

Chief Buthetezi told his 
hug: crowd that the only 
result of disinvestment would 
be “an economic nosedive, 
with the oppressive regime 
remaining intact". . 

But be said he was a union 
man thro ugh and throu g h , and 
that the Government of his 
KwaZulu Bantustan would 
pass a law to make May Day a 
paid holiday in the homeland. 

Strong contingents of secu- 
rity and riot police keep watch 
on the Cosatu rally. They said 
they had seized 24 petrol 
bombs hidden in a bus pmlced 
near the venue. 

Another 19 petrol bombs 


were found in a car at a 
• roadblock in KwaMashu ! 
township near Durban, the 
scene of violent clashes be - 1 
tween Inkatha and pro-UDF i 
factions. 

Cosatu complained to the 
police that 10 busloads of its 
supporters had been waylaid 
by Inkatha gangs and forced to 
drive to the Uwusa rally. 

In Johannesburg, the Asso- 
ciated Chambers of Com- 
merce (Assocom) reported 
that the black stayaway was 
between .70 per cent and 100 
per cent in all major urban 
areas, except in the Orange 
Free Stale, where it appeared i 
to be minimal. ! 

It said there was no doubt of 
substantial support by blacks | 
that May Day should be an 
official public holiday.

Uruguay 
wins 
hearts in 
Israel 

From lan Murray 
Jerusalem 

A 21-gun salute boomed out 
over Jerusalem yesterday to 
mark the first occasion on 
which a visiting Head of State 
had agreed to be welcomed 
officially in the disputed capi- 
tal rather than on the politi- 
cally neutral ground of Bra 
Gurion airport. 

The visitor in question was 
President Sanguine tti of Uru- 
guay, whose country has a 
long history of support for 
Israel. It was the first in South 
America to open a mission in 
the new Jewish state in 1948. 

Although trade between the 
two is minimal, relations are 
good, especially since the Pal- 
estine Liberation Organiza- 
tion was refused permission to 
open an office in Montevideo. 

President Sanguinetti is to 
sign a few minor economic 
agreements and have discus- 
sions with Mr Shimon Peres, 
the Prime Minister. 

Mr Yitzhak Shamir, the. , 
deputy Prime Minister, meanr 
while leaves today for Hondu- 
ras, Guatemala and Costa 
Rica, where be will attend the 
swearing-in of President-elect 
Arias next week. 

The outgoing President, Se- 
nor Luis Alberto Monge, won 
a special place in Israeli hearts 
last year when he agreed to 
transfer the Costa Rican Em- 
bassy back to Jerusalem — the 
only country yet to do so. 

The two visits underline the 
close (inks which Israel main- 
tains with many Latin Ameri- 
can countries, to whom it sells 
arms and provides military 
aid, all of it confidential.

Karmal who Iras not been

Bangladesh politicians 
held as Ershad moves 


to curb poll opposition 


India will 
not expel 
Tamil

V- 




Wife told 
captives 
in Qatar 
are safe 


The Bangladesh military 
Government yesterday arrest- 
ed more than 25 leading 
opposition politicians - in- 
cluding a former Parliament 
Speaker — in a sweeping move 
to curb activists opposed to 
next week's parliamentary 
elections, police sources said. 

Policemen in plain clothes 
look the former Speaker, Mr 
Miiza Gholam Hafiz, a close 
aide of the opposition leader. 
Begum Khaleda Zia, from bis 
residence in western Dhaka, 


members of the family said. 
The whereabouts of Begum 


Zia, who has been campaign- 
ing outside Dhaka against the 
polls, were not known yester- 
day. fuelling rumours that she 
had been arrested. 


From Ahmed Fazi, Dhaka 

The arrests came after a new 
ban imposed by President 
Ershad on Wednesday, out- 
lawing all anti-election dem- 
onstrations. The press was 
also ordered not to publish 
reports on rallies opposing the 
elections, to be held on May 7. 

Among those arrested are 
Mr Oli Aback chief of the 
right-wing Democratic 
League, and the Socialist Party 
leader, Mr Mahbubul Haq, 
police said. 

Security officials on Wed- 
nesday night also raided the 
homes of about a dozen 
politicians opposed to the 
polls, but most of them had 
gone into hiding, opposition 
sources said. Police had earlier 
stopped a torchlight proces- 


sion by hundreds of Zia 
supporters. 

The Government ban was 
„ directed against Begum Zia. 
chief of the Bangladesh Na- 
tionalist Party and a seven- 
party alliance, who urged the 
Army to resist what she called 
an "arranged” election to keep 
General Ershad in power. 

Meanwhile, the authorities 
yesterday dosed all universi- 
ties and schools, and cancelled 
examinations next week to 
avoid trouble during polling. 

Dhaka university, the scene 
of violent anti-election dem- 
onstrations in April, had been 
abruptly closed after several 
bombs exploded on the cam- 
pus on Tuesday night.

More than 40 killed in jungle war 


From Our Correspondent 
Dhaka 

More than 40 people were 
killed and at least 60 others 
wounded as tribal guerrillas 
fighting a secessionist jungle 
war in Bangladesh's south- 
eastern hill tracts attacked 
three villages and a bazaar 
with mortars and sub-ma- 
chine-guns late ou Tuesday 
night, Interior Ministry offi- 
cials said yesterday. 

They said that tire guerrillas 


were members of the Marxist- 
led Sbantibahiui (peace force), 
which has demanded indepen- 
dence for the Chittagong full 
tracts, which are home to 
500,000 Buddhist Cbakma 
and Manna tribes, and ac- 
count for almost 20 pm* cent of 
Bangladesh's land area. 

The region's leading dvil 
administrator, reached by tele- 
phone, said that more than 40 
people has been missing since 
the raid. Many of the dead are 


women and children. 

The victims are landless 
Muslim Bengali fanners from 
the plains who were resettled 
in the hills by the Government, 
a step which triggered the 
secessionist movement in 
1976. 

The massacre came less 
than six months after Presi- 
dent Ershad declared that the 
tribal war had died down and 
most of the guerrillas had 
surrendered 


ter of State, Mr P. Chid- 
ambaram, said yesterday. 

Mr Chidambaram, who is 
heading an Indian Govern- 
ment delegation to Colombo 
in an attempt to resolve Sri 
Lanka's ethnic problem, told 
Mr Anura Bandaranaike, the 
: Sri Lankan Opposition leader, 
that it would have been possi- 
ble four years ago. 

Mr Bsmdaranaike, the son 
of the former Prime Minister, 
Mrs Sirimavo Bandaranaike, 
told the Indian minister that 
any proposed solution to the 
ethnic problem would have to 
be acceptable to the majority 

Sinhalese community- 

Meanwhile, clashes between 
two of the main Tamil sepa- 
ratist groups have left at least 
120 dead, according to the 
security forces. 

Yesterday the town of Jaff- 
na remained calm, but else- 
where fighting between the 
Liberation Tigers of Tamil 
Eelam and the Tamil Eelam 
Liberation Organization 
(Telo) continued. 

Government estimates on 
Wednesday night put the 
numbers killed at 95 Telo i 
guerrillas and 26 Tigers. {

General Stroessner, aged 73, 
could herald the appearance of 
paramilitary groups.

them’s no time like the prese 



And there's nothing quite like National 
Savings Deposit Bonds to give him a tidy capital 
sum when he is older and will appreciate it most. 


This special tax advantage means Deposit 
Bonds are likely to grow faster than any other risk- 
free investment you could make for them. 


Whether you’re investing for your grand- 
child, godchild, niece, nephew or just one of your 
favourites, Deposit Bonds will grow with them 


Not only do Deposit Bonds offer a premium 
rate of interest- currently 12% p.a. - they also add 
that interest each year without deduction of tax. 
This is unlike tax-paid investments, where part of 
the interest is lost, automatically 


So when you're dunking about their future, 
give them something that will grow and grow in 
value. An investment that will help towards a more 
secure tomorrow 


Most children are non-taxpayers, so Deposit 
Bonds are of particular benefit to them Because as 
long as they do not pay tax and the bonds are given 
by someone other than their parents, they keep all 
the interest 


You can buy the bonds at post, offices in 
multiples of £50 with a minimum purchase of £100.

The EEC budget 


Spending may hit 
£23 bn ceiling 


From A Correspondent, Brussels 


Mr Henning Chrisloph- 
ersen, the European Budget 
Commissioner, has proposed 
a £1.36 billion supplementary 
budget to bail the EEC out of 
its financial difficulties in 
1986. 

The proposal would take 
the Community’s spending to 
£23.25 billion, .which is the 
ceiling forced on it by the limit 
of 1.4 per cent of national 
VAT contributions to EEC 
revenues. 

Mr Christophersen said that 
his proposal used up all the 
available funds, but did not 
breach the 1 .4 per cent limit as 
some officials had feared 
might be likely. 

The extra spending was 
caused in part by an overpay- 
ment by Britain in 1985, 
which meant that the Com- 
munity was legally bound to 
refund £325 million to the 
United Kingdom. 

Spain and Portugal would 
also get £94.25 million. Mr 
Chrislophersen said. This was 
in relief of their contributions 
lo the EEC in their first year of 
membership. 

But be gave a warning that 
the funds remaining within 
the ceiling did not allow him 
to budget for the full £910 
million in additional agricul- 
tural spending or the £759 
million in extra spending on 
the Community's structural 
policies, which unforeseen ex- 


penditure so far this year and 
projected needs for the rest of 
the year demanded. 

He was therefore proposing 
to allocate only £594 million 
to farm spending, and be said 
what remained would be di- 
rected to the structural fund. 

Mr Christophersen warned 
that his proposal would mean 
spending cuts. 

Meanwhile, the Commis- 
sion has also proposed a £23.8 
billion budget for 1987, setting 
aside just under£l 5 billion for 
form spending. 

In order to stay within 
financial restrictions for 1987 
agreed by the finance minis- 
ters earlier this week, Mr 
Christophersen said that gov- 
ernments would have to find 
the money for both his budget 
proposals this year.

Green currencies key 
to farm compromise 


From Richard Owen, Luxembourg 


The marathon EEC farm 
price-fixing round this month 
and tiie crisis over the 1986 
budget have focused attention 
on the use of green currencies, 
the European Monetary Sys- 
tem (EMS) and complex agri- 
cultural arrangements. 

Behind the impenetrable 
EEC jargon lie realities which 
can make or break European 
farmers, and especially those 
whose profit margin is small 
and whose overheads are 
increasing. 

The “green” currencies, in- 
cluding the green pound, have 
softened the impact of rising 
costs in tiie countryside daring 
the pasL decade, though many 
European farmers still com- 
plain that the prices they 
obtain for their produce are 
not high enough. 

Until the early 1970s farm 
prices were calculated in na- 
tional currencies In Europe, 
but farmers suffered from 
exchange rate fluctuations. As 
a stopgap measure, the EEC 
compensates countries with 
weak currencies and protects 
them from fluctuations 
through a system known as 
Monetary Compensatory Am- 
ounts, or MCAs. 

Bat the long-term answer 
lies in the green currencies, 
which are related to the ECU 
(European Currency Unit) and 
are fixed regardless of ex- 
change rate changes. The 
ECU is itself based on a 
basket of European cur- 
rencies. 

The green currencies are 
fixed whenever the EMS is 
realigned, the most recent 
being at Ootmarsom in Hot- 
land on April 6. The French 
franc was devalued by 3 per 
cent at Ootraarsnm, and the 
Deuteche mark, the strongest 
EMS currency, re rained In- 3 
per rent. (Sterling is not a 
member of the EMS, which 
was formed in 1979.) 

As a consequence, at the 
fora ministers' meeting test 
Frida} green currencies were 


also devalued, with the excep- 
tion of the green mark and .the 
Dutch guilder, which is linked 
to the mark. 

This reduces the impact of 
other farm measures taken on 
Friday, and above all ' the 
freeze on agricultural prices. 
In ether words, although 
French farmers, for example, 
did not get the price rises they 
were seeking for their prod- 
ucts, they will none the less 
receive more in reality because 
the green franc has been 
devalued. 


This was the key to the farm 
price compromise package, 
and to the agreement du the 
controversial cereals tax; to 
which there had betel strong 
opposition. 

The farm ministers dodged 
some of the key problems by 
putting on one side a Commis- 
sion proposal for pbasfag Otrt 
beef and other livestock subsi- 
dies, and avoided malting a cat 
in hotter prices. 

But the cereals production 
tax, known as the ce-respoaslr 
bilfty levy, was adopted in the 
teeth of West German opposi- 
tion . 


The 3 per cart tax will be 
paid by cereal farmers wheth- 
er they sell then- products to 
intervention stores (the so- 
cailed food mountains), to 
cereal processors or on the 
open market. The tax revenue 
will then be used to pay for 
export subsidies to dispose of 
surpluses. 

The term “eo-resaansS- 
bility is supposed to impress 
on the fanner that he, too, has 
to help to pay for surplus 
disposaL 

The loophole, however, is 
that the cereals tax .does not 
apply to grain which is con- 
tented “locally” which afr- 
pears to mean other on the 
fora concerned or or neigh- 
bouring farms. And tint is 
likely to happen inoeasiagiy 
a cereal farmers wish to avoid 
paying the new tax.

SPECTRUM 


Gamblers with the 


A £2 billion building project is set to 
t ransform London’s rejuvenated docklands 
into the West’s financial capitaL But as 
Bryan Appleyard reports, stunned experts in 
the City are claiming that the plan could 
turn out to be a developer’s graveyard 



As you enter Michael Cassidy's 
20tb-floor flat in the Barbican he 
will be saying something like: 
“Well of course Canary Wharf is 
outside our area so we have no real 
right to comment”. By the time 
you reach the living room, about 
15 secouds later, he will be saying: 
“I can't imagine what they base 
their estimates on. we don't need 
that much office space”. 

Displaying similar inconsisten- 
cy from a service apartment in 
Mayfair is G. Ware Travelstead, 
from Kentucky — “I don't see 
what the City’s problem is. . . but 
and you can quote me on this, 
their motives are transparent.'’' 

1 Cassidy is the chairman of the 
City of London Planning Com- 
mittee and Travelstead is the head 
of a consortium which has pro- 
posed the biggest property devel- 
opment the world has ever seen. 
They are the two principal playere 
in a poker game worth £2,000 
million, h is, you might say. the 
only game in town and it is not 
being played according to Hoyle. 

Canary Wharf is an artificial 
peninsula about the length of The 


‘We just don’t 
need that much 
office space’ 

Michael Cassidy 


Mall which juts out into the West 
India docks on the northern 
fringes of the Isle of Dogs. Dotted 
about are the little successes of the 
London Docklands Development 
Corporation — fragments of slick 
architecture erected by companies 
eager to exploit the financial and 
planning incentives available for 
docklands revivers. 

At one end of the wharf is 
Limehouse Studios, the indepen- 
dent television centre that re pre- 
sents precisely the kind of small- 
scale service industry which 
everybody assumed would be the 
salvation of Docklands and, sub- 
sequently, Britain. . 

Until, that is, the Kentuckian 
appeared on the scene. Lacking 
the native caution of the English 
when it comes to big buildings, 
and unimpressed by the City's 
claim to be the only true financial 
centre, be revealed plans for 10 
million square feet of office space 
on the wharf. Three 850ft towers— 
the tallest buildings in Europe — 
would be erected as well as further 
vast concourses. Mocks, shops and 
restaurants. 

Its sheer scale stunned every- 
body from conservationists to 
rival developers. The unspoken 
background to. all the incredulity 


was that, in a country which had 
grown accustomed to thinking 
small, this all seemed like some 
son of mistake, a kind of fantasy. 

But it all makes perfect sense if 
you remember that through Ca- 
nary Wharf runs the Greenwich 
Meridian — 0 d eg r ees of longitude 
— and that there is currently more 
hot cash slushing around the globe 
than ever before. ■- 

After 1973; the year of the Arab 
oil price rises, money changed. 
Huge surpluses were generated in 
the Middle East and the western 
banking system had to adjust to 
find ways of recycling these funds. 
As the economies recovered, the 
system grew more sophisticated in 
providing more efficient ways of 
making more money out of 
money. 

in 1976 the Chicago Financial 
Futures Market was born and, 
since then, financial services have 
been exploding in all directions. 
Vast, open-plan floor areas are 
now required to provide instant 
.visual and personal communica- 
tion between dealers. In addition, 
massive computer and air-condi- 
tioning requirements mean that 
the floors have to be deeper — !5ft 
against 11 or 12ft in the usual 
office building. These demands 
render almost every existing office 
building obsolete 

The significance of the Green- 
wich Meridian is that it indicates 
Britain's ancient role as the centre 
of the world. Today this makes 
sense because we lie in a time zone 
between New York and Tokyo. 
The new financial markets have to 
be in action 24 hours a day. so a 
centre in Western Europe is 
essential. With its language and a 
history as a financial capital, 
London is the obvious choice: 

“London”, says Scott Lowry, 
Travelstead's second in com- 
mand, “would have to work pretty 
hard to destroy itself as a financial 
centre.” 

But when a handful of banks 
began looking for new sites in the 
City four years ago. they found 
nothing, even though they were 
looking for only 1.2 million sq. ft. 
The alternative was docklands 
but. Travelstead says, it would not 
have been an economic move for 
that amount of space as the 
infrastructure costs — transport, 
electricity and so on — would be 
too great. 

So Canary Wharf was bom. The 
overall plan, put together by the 
banks — and including some 20 
schemes — is so big that it justifies 
its own telephone, electricity, 
water and rail systems. Potential 
customers will buy a freehold and 
have their own building designed, 
although it will have to meet with 
the approval of the consortium's 
architects, Skidmore, Owings and 



Super-centre: a model of the proposed project for London's Canary Wharf — the biggest property development in the world 


Merrill, the biggest firm of its kind 
in the world. 

No planning permission is nec- 
essary as the area is designated as 
an enterprise zone and customers 
will get a six-year rates holiday as 
part of the package. And the 
promised benefits seem stagger- 
ing: once the holiday ended, the 
rate income for the borough of 
Tower Hamlets would double 
instantly, S7.000 permanent new 
jobs would be created; the Chan- 
cellor would receive £340 million 
extra in tax and natio nal insur- 
ance, and so on. 

The figures were spewed gleeful- 
ly from the Henley Centre, which 
investigated the scheme. They 
were commissioned by 
Travelstead but were, he says. 


strictly independent Even if they 
were 50 per cent out with their 
numbers, however, the whole 
package would mil look like an 
offer that nobody in charge of a 
decaying borough,declining econ- 
omy and obsolete building stock 
could seriously refuse. 

Tower Hamlets bought the idea, 
as did the Government and the 
LDDC felt it was about to achieve 
some kind of institutional apothe- 
osis. That left the Cty and the 
environmentalists jointly out- 
raged and irritatingly lacking in 
bureaucratic weapons. 

The environmentalist case was 
that the towers were far too big 
and ruined the view from Green- 
wich Park over Inigo Jones's 
masterpiece, the Queen's House, 



and Wren's somewhat feebler 
Royal Naval College. Travelstead 
obligingly shifted one of the 
towers to the right, but he need 
hardly have bothered as that part 
of the environmentalist case was 
dreadfully weak anyway. Nobody 
can seriously claim that the exist- 
ing view from Greenwich Park, a 
focusless, meandering mass _ of 
unattractive buildings, is anything 
but dralx 

Canary Wharf does not, howev- 
er, look like being great architec- 
ture. The architects have come up 
with a safe rather than exciting 
assembly of buildings. 

Hie City argues that the whole 
scheme is a white elephant. City 
researches show that immediate 
demand for new office space is 




barely a quarter of what 
Travelstead expects to sell, and 
Canary Wharf could knock the 
bottom out of the London com- 
mercial property market and leave 
many offices empty. The City 
believes its existing 69 million 
sq. ft in the Square Mile needs to . 
be increased only gradually. In-, 
deed, last year it produced^ a 
massive relaxation of planning 
controls which could allow for 
another 20 million sq. ft Tte City 
swears ft was a coincidence that 
this was done just as Canary 
Wharf appeared. 

But even with a Tory Govern- 
ment, the City has no friends on 
this issue: So fts resistance has 
been manifested via tire only 
weapon , at its disposal — the

Docklands Railway. Originally 
this ran only as far as Tower Hill 
but. for Travelstead, ft was vital 
that ii ran as far as Bank— infect, 
no Bank link, no Canary Wharf! 
The City thought fire exte nsion 
should run through to Cannon 
Street and the baft has-been 
- steadily knocked bade and fop- 
ward. The Railway Bill has stzH co 
go through Parliament and re- 
mains the only obstacle left - 

The City knows ft will lose 
eventually , but insists that its 
engineering- and planning objeo 
’ lions to we railway scheme are 
genuine and not inspired simply 
by enmity towards Canary Wharf 

Travelstead expects the railway 
tobc virtually wrapped up by June 
and to be on site by July. He will 
tolerate delays until October but, 
after that, be goes elsewhere. More 
bluff says the City, which is 
convinced that the whole of 
Canary Wharf will never be built 

— that. Travelstead is using the 
scale of the plan to bludgeon 
through a much smaller deal. In 
the Barbican Cassidy looks know- 
ing, in Mayfair the Kentuckian 
snorts in derision. 

Even if the City is right, even if 
the new finan cial markets collapse 
avernigit, foe Canary Wharf 
scheme has been a pn^emptive 
strike at deeply entrenched British 
.attitudes. On the environmental 
side ft has exposed the niggiy 
misconceptions bdd by many 
cemservationists. The fact is that 
London as a whole would benefit 
.from some buildings of real scale. 
It has also stared the ultimate 
question for conservationists — do 
you want the future or not? 

In political terms ft has 
swamped a Labour area with 
capitalism on such a scale that the 
party has been unable to raise so 
. much as an ideology in protest, ft 
has also -driven a neat wedge 
between the City and its tradition- 
al friends at Westminster. 

- Perhaps most lasting of aft ft 
has challenged the existence of the 
Cfty, an institution whose medi- 
eval, identity has survived thus far 
because of tire need by the 

inhab itant^, of financial 

centres to meet, have lunch 
impress each other. Bol with the 
- highest repts in the worid and an 
• appallingly low -office stock com- 
pared" 'to New York or Tokyo, 
something' has to change: . 

The insurance brokers have 
already moved outside its eastern 
boundary — Canary Wharf marks 
tire for end of tire corridor they 
have begun to build. The old 
artificEal line of a medieval local 
authority has been breached — if 
Canary Wharf goes ahead the 
remainder of that line will begin, 
slowly and silently, to vanish. 
Neither of them will admit it, but 
Travelstead is kilting the Cfty, and 
Cassidy knows ft.

A future with a great past behind it 


I t was a ally idea. Only the 
BBC could suppose that 
there was a TV audience, 
its supper still on its 
stomach, which would settle 
down once a week to an early 
evening dose of science and 
technology by the name of 
Modem Age. 

But the audience has settled 
down once a week, barring 
holiday breaks, for 21 years 
now, and we who doubted it 
would run six months can 
only pause in awe before its 
durability and its viewing 
figures. They now run to 10 to 
12 million, which would be a 
tidy enough sum for a soap, 
and which puis to shame the 
frailty of the faith of its 
founders all those years ag o 
The programme always goes 
out live — it makes for sharp 
presentation - but you live on 
the edge of public disaster. 
Two decades of producers and 
presenters have watched nu- 


merous demonstrations fold 
up and die on them. Fot the 
audience, it's half of the fun. 

We. all knew the working 
title was hopelessly wooden 
for the people we were trying 
to enthuse. But we had 
reached the ultimate deadline. 
Radio Times press day, and 
on the last evening 1 settled 
down in our living room with 
my wife and some wine, 
determined not to stir until we 
could send our equivalent of a 
puff of smoke up the chimney. 

At midnight, from a pile of 
scratched out suggestions an 
crumpled paper, we rescued 
two random words; “world” 
and “tomorrow”. Other peo- 
ple have now appropriated 
them for their products, even 
for their shops, which we take 
to be success. The music stuck 
too, for a good many years 
after we paid John Dankworth 
£25 to write it. There was good 
reason for this parsimony; the

each programme had been 
curtly cut by the BBC to 
£1.500 — enough, perhaps, in 
1986 to field one production 
team for one day for one item. 

Perhaps the optimistic 
chime in that title rings a little 
hollow today when we know 
that science does sot inevita- 
bly deliver a saner society. But 
it seemed exactly right for the 
sunnier Sixties, when we 
thought we would all be

the technological revolution

Britain).

It is probably this sense of 
disenchantment that partly 
fires the critics who maintain 
that Tomorrow's World is no, 
better than soap— science and 
technology as they aren't, a 
vulgar parade of gimmicks, 
gadgets and myths purveyed 
by hucksters of a future whose 
promises are rarely, if ever, 
redeemed. 

They — and we — can judge 
the fairness of the charge fry 
watching the one-hour special 
Tomorrow's World 21 next 
Thursday at 8pm. Martin 
Freeth. co-producer, has 
looked ax the responses of the 
programme-makers to global 
upsets such as foe oil turmoil 
of the Seventies. Alternatives 
were heralded from every- 
where — our energy would 
come from the waves, the 
wind, the skies, the atom. 

Energy for. Britain actually 
came from North Sea oil, and 
its falling worid price makes 
all the alternatives look even 
less likely than they did. There ‘ 


was a s e q u e n ce though, in 
programme six, in which a 
Texan in a stetson gazed 
across the dark waters of the 
can coast and said the waves 
would soon shimmer with the 
flares of the production plat- 
forms. Poor man, I think we 
laughed him off 
Item one of programme one 
celebrated tire arrival of the 
factory robot, and item two 
came live from a Romford 
school which raised £13,000 
by fts own efforts to buy a 
computer — the first school so 
equipped in Britain. 

O ften, Tomorrow ’s 
World got admira- 
bly near the nail, 
even if it seldom hit 
ft quite on the bead. Right 
about the micro, ft foiled to 
foresee the surge of cheap 
computing power. Early in the 
field of spare-part surgery, it 
did not — could not — predict 
the amazing discoveries of 
immunology which have 
meant that the bits came from 
human beings, not from the 
factory. 

Evergreen was the promise 
of alternative transport, from ' 
the electric car to the Sinclair 
C5. but ever more firmly sits 
the intemal combustion en- 
gine before your driving seat. 


Difficult ft may be to pick a 
winner, but to time its arrival 
c or rec tl y is even more fraught. 
Twenty years ago 'atomic fu- 
sion and fast breeder reactors 
were to be tire nuclear energy 
wonders of 20. yean hence: 
Today they are still 20 years 
away — perhaps even 30! 

The expectations of the 
search are just as exciting as 
the discoveries, and some- 
times more rewarding. The 
programme still innovates 
wi thin itself The p res e nt edi- 
tor. Richard Rdsz, has derid- 
ed on a regular spot for today’s 
world — a few minutes devot- 
ed to each week's science 
news. 

Perhaps Tomorrow’s World 
is really about an attitude — 
the acceptance of foe late 20th 
century culture of change. 
Science-struck school children 
whose chapter and verse for 
their less Ifterate parents and 
teachers formed the contents 
of last night's programme 
would probably agree. Martin 
Freeth says: “It’S rubbed off 
on millions over the years. It 
must make for a more sdence- 
lfterate society. We didn't 
often get ft exactly right, but 
we're still trying. If you can do 
that for 12 million people in 
prime time, it's .worthwhile.”

Why love letters tell 
only half the story 



"^r r 



.•n" ■ '* 







T he ladies of the West Oxford- 
shire Conservative Associa- 
tion seemed to have enjoyed 
their morning. “She was 
superb. Not a sign of notes. Facts at 
her finger tips. Never at a loss for an 
answer. Good strong stuff.'* 

An address from the Conservative 
Party Leader? Yob would have 
thoight so. But no. h appears that the 
Tory Party has at leak one other 
strong, fluent, female striker waiting 
on the touchline. They had just had a 
taste of the Emma Nicholson 
phenomenon. 

By some quirk of democratic file 
Miss Nicholson is not actually a 
Member of Parliament aL the mo- 
menu This should be pot right at the 
next general election, when she takes 
over in Devon West and Torridge 
from Sir Peter Mills, who is retiring, 
having gained a 12,000 majority at 
the last election. Meanwhile she is 
nursing that gentle , treat stream 
constituency in her personal whole- 
hearted manner. Tins not only in- 
volves “a regular programme of 
coffee mornings and house-to-house 
visits, followed up by personal letters 
throughout the whole constituency”, 
it also means that she can be found 
singing twice every Sunday in the 
Halherieigh church choir. 

But there is more. After die last- 
election Mrs Thatcher and Willie 
Whitelaw brought ber into central 
office as a party vice-chairman in 
charge of women. She has set herself 
the task of changing the fece of Tray 
womanhood. No more pretty hats 
and backroom slavery. She wants to 
recruit what she calls “the high 
fryers”. She is in direct opposition to 
the high priestess of upwardly mohfle 
young people, Lynne Franks, who is 
going after the same group for the 
Labour Party. When Emma Nichol- 
son arrived, there were eight women 
on the central office ca n dida t es list 
Now there are 90, . 

Arranging to meet her is nice 
organizing a rendezvous with 
Halley’s Comet. There is a patient 

male on ber staff who kept passing me 


Emma Nicholson leads a teum.of career women committed to political advancement 

The most high flyer 


position fixes; she was in the file of 
Wight one moment, then Devon, 
then London “to brief Norman” and 
run a High Flyers conference. Then it 
was Scotland for five speeches, back 
for a speech in Douglas Hurd’s 
constituency and then on to Cornwall 
to speak in Truro. I ought to see her 
soon, he advised, for the Turkish. 
Prime Minister had invited her to see 
what they were doing about the 
advancement of women in Istanbul 
and Dr Hastings Banda wanted beT in 
Malawi for the anniversary of their 
independence. Her crowded schedule 
is also a reason for her single status; 
“Lots of people have wanted to many 
me but Fve always been too busy." 

Eventually I found myselfln charge 
of the plastic carrier bag she uses lor 
her overnight things ( 7 I suppose I 
should gst a suitcase”) as we went off 
to have lunch at the home of her 84- 
year-okl father. Sir Godfrey Nichol- 
son, who was himself an MP fra 34 
years. As Sr Godfrey conducted me 
to the stables to tap one of his barrels 
of home-made cider (brewing habits 
die hard for a firmer nha mpan of 
Nicholson’s Gin), he delivered his 
own judgement on his daughter: “She 
is the mbs remarkable woman I 
know.” 

J ust bow remarkable was gradu- 
ally revealed. She is a sturdy, 
handsome 44, a longdistance 
walker and a cross-country 
skier. She spent ber early fife aiming 
to be a professional musician. She 
was school organist, head of the choir 
and deputy head giri at St Mary’s, 
Wantage. At the Royal Academy of 
Music rite sailed through her piano, 
cello and singing ««n«, but some- 
thing was wrong. M I just wasn't 
making the progress that was expect- 
ed of me.” 

Suddenly, the reason for that be- 
came all too dear. She had been 
seriously deaf since birth. Fra the 
early part of her life she had missed 
much of what was happening around 
her. Medical technology has now 
removed this drawback. 


With ber musical career in ruins, 
she decided, in 1963, that the coming 
thing was computers. I CL, who were 
looking fir mathematicians, turned 
her down for their computer course. 
Her knowledge of Greek, Latin, 
Aramaic, Hebrew and music did not 
impress the deputy personnel officer. 
The Emma Nicholson persuasion 
changed that 

. ‘There followed 10 years in comput- 
er and general management consul- 
tancy work. “It was a wonderful 
grounding in business. Before I could 
write a programme fra a company I 
had to find out how it worked.” In 
1973 she made another radical career 
switch, joining the Save The Children 
Fund as director of fund-raising, 
When she arrived, the fund’s annual 
income was £33 million. When she 
left to tackle full-time politics last 
year it was £42 million. 

“I saw, going round with my father 
as a child, that politics was die easiest 
way of getting thing changed, that 
the House of Commons was the place 
where decisions were taken which 
affect people's lives. And I saw an 
awful fit of things I wanted changed.” 

Adopted for an industrial constitu- 
ency, Blyth m Northumberland, she 
admits: “I didn’t really know how to 
start, so I went to see Mrs Thatcher 
for advice. She told me to spend every 
Saturday afternoon in the housing 
estates. So I did - every Saturday 
afternoon for three and a half years. It 
worked. At the 19 79 election I got the 
highest ever Conservative vote in 
Blyth. The Liberal lost his deposit, 
which was fun.” 

She was left without a constituency 
at the last election because, as she 
purs it. “I tried above my level”. She 
was offered three hopeless seats but 
no one offered her a winnaWe one. 
This may have been the party’s gain 
in the long run, for she has been able 
to concentrate on rallying the New 
Woman to the cause. 

“From my experience in industry, 
women who achieve success are 
exceptionally able people, with clear 
judgement mid well organized lives. 


The skills of these women are needed 
in politics. The qualities which make 
a woman bank manager are qualities 
which should inform government 
and help put together legislation.” 

By visiting anything between six 
and a dozen constituencies every 
week she has amassed a collection of 
names, and instructed all her contacts 
“to go out and find other people like 
you”. She now heads a huge female 
network of upwardly mobile talent. 
“I’m trying to tap their support 
without wrecking their professional 
lives. Our High Flyers conference, for 
instance, was deliberately timed for 
10.30am-3.30pm to allow the consci- 
entious women to do a day's work 
before and afterwards.” 

T he trouble, she says, is they 
are so easily discouraged. 
“You have to keep bouncing 
back in politics. Women 
aren’t very good at tbaL Just the other 
day one of my women was turned 
down for a seal which she was tipped 
U> get. She rang me up and said: 
'That’s it, Emma. I’m taking my 
name off the list* It took me 20 
minutes on the telephone, followed 
by a letter, followed by a visit, to stop 
her. .After all, 1 tell them, 1 know what 
ft's like. I have had 35 interviews fra 
seats myself.” 

She has a certain scorn for sociolo- 
gy — “woolly thinking” — and for 
“under-performing teachers”. She be- 
lieves in the central management of 
education and higher pay for teachers 
based on an assessment of their work. 
“It is under-performing teachers who 
are blocking this development. In 
industry we welcomed work assess- 
ment as a way towards advancement 
more pay, better opportunities.” 
“Don't think I am doing all this 
without support from the very top” , 
she says. “I often send papers to Mrs 
Thatcher, and follow them up with a 
visit. We don't always agree, but 
that's the fun of politics. 1 enjoy our 

session& " Pearson Phillips

It’s been going on for a week, 
now. so we must all know that 
eonum was the late Edward 
VIH’s private word, meaning 
“little arid pathetic and 
sweet”; that he and Mrs 
Simpson had a code for 
themselves, “WE", meaning 
“Wallis and Edward”: ana 
that be ended his letters “God 
Bless WE”. We know about 
the playfulness, the bursting 
hearts, the admonitory mater- 
nal remarks and the sheer 
confidence of the married 
woman who called the Prince 
of Wales a “nice boy" and 
reckoned that she and he and 
poor old Ernest could happily 
nib along together, with a bit 
of tact, even when the Prince's 
outpourings had become 
molten. 

We have, courtesy of Mi- 
chael Bloch’s book (serialized 
in the Daily Mail), opened a 
few dozen ancient letters ad- 
dressed to “The King. The 
Fort, Sunningdale, 
Angle terre", and a few more 
from the royal pen itself. We 
have pored over the coy and 
unpunctuated contents. And it 
has all been pretty uncomfort- 
able, even when loosely dis- 
guised as “history”. 

Oddly enough, it was all the 
more embarrassing because 
these two avid lovers — dust 
and ashes, now, beyond suffer- 
ing from history’s verdict — 
were in fact notable for noth- 
ing at aU, other than their love 
and its constitutional results.

Instead of being a sidelight 
on distinguished lives, the 
letters represent the whole 
interest of them. If you read 
the absurd love-letters of, for 
instance, Chopin (be wrote to 
Delphine Potocka outlining 
his slightly insulting theory 
that the act of love meant that

The big sleep cure for jetlag 





Statesmen, when they travel, 
should always bear in mind 
the file of the late Lord 
George-Brown who was so 
disorientated by jetlag, or a 
failure to observe the disci- 
plines of long-distance travel, 
that his diplomatic mission 
had to be abandoned and Her 
Majesty’s Foreign Secretary 
retnmed to Britain early to 
recover. White House advise 
era have made it plain that 
nothing so ignominious will 
overtake their President Rear 
gan, currently on a tour of 
south-east Asia. 

While on board his plane he- 
will eschew alcohol, and drink 
up to five pints of fluid a day 
to keep him hydrated. He will 
eat easily digested carbohy- 
drates in the morning, have 
plenty of tea and coffee in the 
afternoon,, and proteins for 
supper. His journey will be 
spaced out with several stops 
to allow his natural time dock, 
“the rhythm” which 

governs the body’s physiologi- 
cal systems, to adjust to 
crossing several time zones. 

Ideally there should be a 24- 
hoar pause for each zone, but 
^ few schedules allow this. Sleep 
is all important, and British 
physicians usually recom- 
mend a short-acting 
benzodiazapme temazepam, 
(Nonnison or Euhypnos) in 
order to ensure a night's rest 

If the President is a catnap- 
perso much the better, for the 
very deep sleep of the catnap

against jetlag. On arrival, after

time for the system to adjust 
to a time change. 

“People shouldn't eat when 
the body is closed, but I 
suppose that if they have to, 
carbohydrate would be easier 
to absorb.” 

Hormone therapy 

Hormone re- 
placement 
therapy has 
advanced since 
the Somerset 
Manghao era 
when discos' 
sum of it conjnred up an image 
of furtive trips to Swiss clinics 
and hints of monkey gbmd 
extracts. Some of the quackery 
which sarronnded it in the 
1930s may account for the 
Kturtance of GPs to talk about 
it with post-menopausal pa- 
tients — a reluctance which 
condemns many post-meno- 
pausal women to unnecessary 
osteoporosis (thinning of the 
bones) which can result in 
fatal fractures and coronary 

heart disease. 

Dr Malcolm Pike, of the 
Raddifie Infirmary, Oxford, 
diking recently at the BMA 
annual scientific meeting, 
helped to redress the balance. 
The use of hormones would ait 
the dead! rate from fractures 
in older women by 60 per cent, 
and the death rate from coro- 
nary heart disease — rapidly 
becoming a scourge in women 
as well as men — by half. 

However, there is a risk* and 
Dr Pike told the conference 
that it is ap to a patient’s 
doctor to weigh the benefit of

The billets-doux 
of Edward VHI 
and Mrs Simpson 1 
distort their 
memory, argues 
Libby Pnrves 

Windsor letters were any 
more . . . well, eonum , to use 
a kind word, than anybody 
else’s. They were poorly ex- 
pressed and repetitive, but no 
more so than you would 
expect of that brittle cocktail 
generation. Neither of them 
was a Keats, but then, how 
many of us are? The great 
majority of love-letters, ex- 
posed to the common gaze, 
would probably look banal, 
affected and sickening, just 
like the Valentine messages to 
Tiggy-pooh, Rumpletummy 
and Snoggin the Snog, pub- 
lished annually in the 
newspapers. 

Equally, all love-letters, in- 
cluding foe WE correspon- 
dence, have flashes of 
genuinely moving, universal 
poetry, usually well buried in a 
load of indecipherable refer- 
ences to Easter Bunnies and 
Tiggers (Winnie foe Pooh has 
a lot to answer for). No, it is 
not a personal slight upon the 
Duke and Duchess to wonder, 
reading the letters, whether it 
was really worth a scholarly, 
meticulous chap's while to 
spend years typing them out 
and arranging them for the 
printed page. History? Bunk. 

Love-letters prove nothing 
but love. The only excuse for 
priming them is if the writers 
have the rare gift of disciplin- 
ing their outpourings: which 
means, generally, that they are 
professionals. Look at Keats: 
he scornfully rejected the sen- 
timental finesse in the letters 
of Rousseau: as he wrote to 
Fanny Brawne: “The common 
gossiping of washerwomen 
must be less disgusting than 
the continual and eternal 
fence and attack of Rousseau 
and these sublime petticoats _ 
Thank God I am born in 
England with our own great 
men before my eyes. Thank 
God that you are feir and can 
love me without being letter- 
written and sentimentalized 
into it.” 

And yet he himself, in a 
more straightforward and En- 
glish way. was writing literary 
and love-letters. He couldn't 
help iL He was a poet “Every 
hour 1 am more and more 
concentrated in you; every- 
thing else tastes like chaff in 
my mouth ” Two good, fresh 
metaphors in one apparently 
spontaneous sentence; well 
worth reading. 

Or take James Joyce’s mis- 
sives to Nora Barnacle: he 
couldn't avoid comedy, even 
at his mistress’s feet: “I of- 
fended two men today by 
leaving them coolly. I wanted 
to hear your voice, not theirs. 
When 1 am with you 1 leave 
aside my contemptuous, sus- 
picious nature. I wish I fell 
your head on my shoulder. I 
think I will go to bed.” 


The other sort of good lo ve- 
letters are those written in a 
more formal age. when pick- 
ing up a pen meant automatic 
self-discipline. 1 suppose pa- 
per was in shorter supply. The 
letters between the con- 
demned Royalist Mr 
Fenruddock and his wife, in 
1 6SS. are among the jewels of 
Elizabeth Jane Howard's an- 
thology of these things. Mrs 
Pen ruddock is: “Your sad but 
constant wife, even to love 
your ashes when dead ... Your 
children beg your blessing, 
and present their duties to 
you” and he replies: “Do not 
think meanly of me, that I give 
way to grief now in private, 
when I see my sand run so fost 
... I thank you for all your 
goodness to me.” 

In restraint is strength; but 
this is a lesson that most 
modern lovers are incapable 
of learning. From the first 
pubescent moment when we 
commit to pink paper the 
words “Dearest darling bestest 
sweetest belovedest Angel 
sweetheart Ra I couldn't sleep 
all N1TE truly darling”, we 
reject reason and grammar. If 
we didnt. we'd think ourselves 
calculating and cold. 

I can tell you. though, that 
future generations are not 
going to be deprived of mate- 
rial for their anthologies of 
1980s billets-doux. Rather to 
my surprise, every single

.As one successful and beau- 
tiful married woman said: “I 
believed totally and utterly in 
every one. while it was going 
on. and the letters commemo- 
rate it.” Another said that she 
felt better for knowing she had 
a whole suitcase full of com- 
pliments in the attic, to draw 
on when marital grunts from 
behind the newspaper made 
her feel neglected. And a third 
had a literary motive: not to 
publish, but merely to show 
respect for the written word. 
“1 keep them all forever. It 
isn't foal none of my relation- 
ships have ever ended bitterly, 
but if it was a bad relationship 
there are probably no letters.” 

As for the men, I must 
admit foal the two who keep 
them are both gay. I was quite 
relieved, really, and so were 
my hoarding female friends: 
all of us suddenly awoke to the 
realization that if we had kept

Where there's nuclear muck

quick buck out of a disaster, have 
piled their money into a company 
called Nuclear Support Systems 
which, among other things, helps

speculators have moved into in- 
clude potato futures (could be

iodine manufacturers (for- die

makers (for ploughing the killing

caring capitalism.

President Reagan, in his meetings 
with foreign ministers of the 
Association of South-East Asian 
Nations on Bali, is having an 
opportunity to hear about the 
problems facing the two-month-

Philippines. He was yesterday

the vice-president and foreign 
minister, how America can help 
meet specific challenges. 

Reagan has announced an in-

Aquino's administration, but this 
money alone will not solve her 
problems. She needs to prime the 
economy, create jobs, mobilize the

Guerrilla activity has risen, claim-

soldiers killed in the past 60 days. 

• A Reuters photographer and a 
local journalist were among those 
killed in the latest encounters in 
the northern Cagayan province. 
Government troops have also

Time for a tactical vote? 


Next Thursday's local elections, 
with the by-elections in Ryedale 
and West Derbyshire, offer the 
biggest test of political opinion 
between now and the end of this 
Parliament. But however people 
vote it is certain that they will be 
saying something different a year 
hence — as the opinion polls dem- 
onstrate. volatility is here to stay. 
Thursday may offer a more im- 
portant indicator for the next 
genera] election: a measure of how 
far people have accepted the idea 
of tactical voting. 

In the past 12 months the 
concept of a “progressive” or anti- 
conservative arrangement, with 
Labour or the Alliance withdraw- 
ing in agreed seats, has been put 
forward as the best chance of 
beating Mrs Thatcher. In a more 
sophisticated version. Michael 
Young and Frank Field have 
mooted a “Rainbow Coalition” 
under which, without any can- 
didate withdrawals or party deals, 
anti-Conservative voters would 
switch unilaterally to Labour 
where Labour is strong, and to the 
Alliance where Labour is weak. 

Labour, of course, rejects these 
ideas, not only on grounds of 
principle but because . Alliance 
supporters might not be prepared 
to switch. But we have not heard 
the last of the idea. Etidence is 
emerging that the political educa- 
tion of the electorate has reached a - 
point where tactical voting could 
affect the outcome in 1 987/88. 

The “two nations” idea mani- 
fest in recent local elections and 
opinion polls has been widely 
noticed — the strong swing to 
Labour in the north. Scotland and 
Wales in contrast with the Alli- 
ance advance in the south. But the 
Labour strategists who see this as a 
bonus will be disappointed. Give 
Payne, of the Oxford Social Stud- 
ies Computing Gentre. explored 
for us a series of hypotheses based 
on these swings. Even in the most 
extreme case, with Labour gaining 
15 per cent of the north and 
Scotland, and standing still in the 
south, these calculations offer no 
significant advantage for Labour 
over a uniform nationwide swing. 

However, if we look at the 
regional trends in conjunction 
with tactical voting, new insights 
emerge. Labour’s better perfor- 
mance may be due not so much to 
the regional economic situation as 
to the fact that Labour is. in many 
of these constituencies, the first or 
second party. This would also 
explain good Labour showings in 
London — and, in fact, in any 
seats where Labour secured a 
substantial share of the vote in 
1983. We therefore explored what 
would happen if the constituencies 
were divided into three categories: 
where Labour was very strong; 
where it got between 25 and 45 per 
cent of the vote; and where it was 


patently weak. We made various 
simplified assumptions about tac- 


tical voting (see table IX 
Tactical voting hardly arises in 
the first category of seats, which 
are all Labour-held and with the 
Alliance faring poorly in most But 
in the second and third categories 
there are obvious reasons for 


Prisons were once like warships.. 


At the height of the Empire, in a 
gunboat off the African coast a 


gunboat off the African coast a 
skipper reputedly asked his offi- 
cers at breakfast- “Well, gentle- 
men, where shall we sail today?” 

Prisons once had a good deal of 
autonomy. The man or woman in 
charge was — in a phrase that 
smacks of colonial autocracy — a 
governor. And if he wanted to sail 
his prison in a particular way he 
could, within the broad outlines of 
policy. One once said he ruled 
with the help of his chief officer, 
and might take the chaplain's 
advice. 

Over the past 20 years that 
autonomy has been curbed. The 
governors are now called “man- 
agement”. They are financially 
responsible for their prisons in a 
way that leaves them difficult 
choices. The prison officers and 
prisoners are at the receiving gnri 
of this new discipline, part of a 
disorientating change which is 
removing from Britain's jails their 
moral content threatening the 
sense of responsibility that has 
underpinned them. Industrial ac- 
tion of the kind now being seen 
would once have been unthink- 
able: but today's officers say the 
pressures are unprecedented. 

They have stated that they want 
their purpose to be the rehabilita-

tactical voting. There would be 
startling consequences for the 
total outcome if these assump- 
tions held good (table 2). 

Labour could thus, with tactical 
voting, win a clear majority on less 
than 35 per cent of the national 
vote. On uniform swings from the 
1983 results, 38 per cent is the 
minimum for either the Conser- 
vative or the Labour Party to gain 
absolute victory (the Alliance 
faces a 42 per cent hurdleX 

The tactical voting hypothesis is 
not just a contrived way of 
attributing some hope of victory 
to Labour at a period when its 
opinion poll ratings seem to have 
developed a stubborn ceiling of 


around 36 per cent Our example 
does presuppose a fairly sharp 
drop in Conservative support 
nationwide, but the phenomenon 
could emerge even if all the party 
percentages remain at the 1983 
leveL Tory marginals would still 
fall through tactical voting 
What hard evidence is there, 
however, that the era of uniform 
national swing is dead? First, there 
is the inherent logic of the 
phenomenon evident in the 1983 
elections. Conservative-Labour 
contests were no longer the norm, 
and the country is now divided 
equally into a Conservative-La- 
bour half and a Conservative- 
Alliance half (table 3X

service's Rule 1. it exists to 
encourage and assist prisoners in 
leading a good and useful life. 
That rule, the culmination of at 
least a century of purposeful penal 
reform, has been important to 
both officer and prisoner. But 
now. after the growth of scep- 
ticism about the usefulness of any 
sort of punishment as a means of 
reform, the emphasis is being put 
on humane containment — equ- 
ally well the purpose of a zoo. 

Though the change was not 
dramatic has not taken place 
overnight, and does noL apply 
everywhere to an equal extent, it 
has blunted sensibilities. It is 
easier to contemplate severe 
industrial action if a moral aim is 
not given the same priority by the 
prison leadership. 

There is a ghetto mentality in 
the service, encouraged by the 


isolation of the various prisons. 
Prison officers suspect that 
management would like to get rid 
of their tribal lords, the chief 
officers, on the grounds that they 
fit a bit anachro rustically into a 
management-orientated service. 
This uncertainty has helped to 
provide a new locus ofloyaJty: the 
Prison Officers Association. 


Though it sees itself as keeper of 
te traditions of the service, the 


POA’s arguments are becoming 
more stridently economic, con- 
demning the prison building pro- 
gramme - much needed though it 
is — for absorbing money that 
should be spent on the day-to-day 
running of the service. 

. Pan of the change which buffets 
the service is because it is. like the 
rest of the penal justice system, 
demand-led. The argument at the 
heart of the dispute between the 


Conservative MPs won against 
Labour; the Alliance was the 
prime enemy. Bat three-quarters 
of Labour MPs won against the 
Conservatives. The division is not 
narrowly regional Labour hopes . 
and needs to min seats in Bristol, 
Swindon, Oxford, Southampton 
and, of course. Greater London if 
it is to attain a majority in the 
House of Commons. 

The two Oxford seats (table 4) 
epitomize the problem. Oxford 
East is 16th on Labour’s list of 
targets, winnable on even a mod-, 
est . Conservative-Labour swing; 
but Oxford West and Abingdon 
would be a Conservative loss to 
the Alliance. if the fatter could 
squeeze the Labour vote. "

The by-elections of this Par- 
liament have shown that tactical 
voting flourishes. In the 10 fought 
in mainland Britain the Labour 
vote has gone up in fl ve out of tbe 
six where the party won 25 per 
cent or more is 1983. It has gone 
down in three out. of the four. 
. where its 1983 vote was under 25 
per cent.’ Recent local authority' 
by-elections" show many more 
instances of-this tendency: - 

What does all this imply? First, - 
it appears to strengthen the Affi- 
ance argument against the present 
electoral system. For a party to 
win a clear majority on barely a 
. third of the votes could be seen by 
many as a cause for concern. 
Second, it justifies the Labour 
strategy of “targeting” 130 or so 
winnable seats, to the exclusion of 
the rest. Third, it confirms the 
widespread prejudice against 
believing in uniform national 
swing. Most people want to think 
that their seat’ is going Go defy the 
broad trend — and, on this 
hypothesis, many of them could 
be right Fourth, it explains why 
the Labour vote can rise by 10 per 
cent in Fulham and, perhaps, 
stand still in Ryedale, while the 
Alliance vote does tbe opposite. 

For the Alliance tbe moral is. 
that it must keep the voters in 
those 315 seats in which it came 
second last time aware that it 
offers the challenge to the incum- 
bent- And for Conservatives it 
seems that, instead of disparaging 
the Alliance, they should be 
devoting their propaganda to 
keeping voters (or at least those 
with latent Labour sympathies) 
loyal to it. 

There have been signs in recent 
weeks of a Labour rally and an 
Affiance slump. It will be interest- 
ing to watch the extent of this 
trend next Thursday. But what 
will be more interesting still will 
be measuring how tactical it is — 
how far the anti-Thatcher voters 
give to him that hath, and wfa 
away from him that hath not

PDA and the service is about 
manning levels needed to cope 
with a rising jail population. More 
economic use of manpower could 
save money, . says the prison 
department, but the POA says that 
could so reduce staff that their 
safety would be ax risk and the 
prisoners' lives made more mis- 
erable. The title . of the Home 
Office official negotiating with the 
POA is Director of Personnel and 
Finance: the two are inextricably 
linked as part of his' role. 

The prison service has not been 
tbe only complainant. Last June. 
Sir Kenneth Newman, the Metro- 
politan Police Commissioner, said 
that London's police could no 
longer keep pace with crime, in 
trying to operate within rigorously 
enforced cash- limits, the police 
would inevitably be less able to 
meet all their commitments in' the 
way ihey would wish. “We have 
been forced to . concentrate upon 
particular priorities.” he said. 

The message coming out of the 
jails is similar. With law and onter 
likely to be a major issue in the 
next general election the govern- 
ment can point to increased prison' 
spending: but wilt it keep pace 
with demand as tbe jail popula- 
tion climbs towards 50.000?

The Labour Party’s new ‘Tfree- 
dom and Fairness” campaign is 
handsome candyfloss but it is also 
potentially important If it has the 
impact that the- people who are 
paying so much for it intend, it is 
going to alter, mice again, foe- 
. mental • picture -with which the 
voters approach British politics. 

■ For the' past two years that 
picture has predominantly been 
the one painted by the - Affiance, 


whose chief- psychological 
'achievement has been to destroy 


theootioD of the party struggle asa 
tug-of-war and substitute the im- 
age of a pair of scales, with the 


Alliance standing halfway be- 
tween two extremes, ready to 


throw its weight on to one side or 
another. It- is unlikely that Labour 
. can restore the old' heave-ho in 
time for die general election, but it 
now' threatens to replace the 

vision of a baiance with the image 
of a a tall triangle of roughly equal 
sides, representing’ an “extreme” 
government at tbe apex, chal- 
lenged by two rival “moderate” 
parties at the base. 

-Hie pofides' of Labour and the 
Alliance are not, of course, being 
seen as identical But with Labour 
pfaying down “socialism” and 
even a dogmatic devotion to 
equality, both alternatives to Mrs 
Thatcher appear to be offering 
non-ideological prescriptions, 
with an emphasis on managerial 
competence,, bread-and-butter 
“human" satisfaction, and 
planned industrial regeneration. 

Naturally. Labour still has to 
confirm that the new look is not 
simply sheep’s clothing. Even if 
one accepts the highly debateable 
proposition that the far-left has 
been crushed for the rest of this 
Parliament, the party's credibility 
as a moderate, centrist force 
cannot rest purely on the policies 
it - is putting forward at tbe 
moment. The path of the repen- 
tant sinner is mined with other 
people’s memories, and Labour's 
glossy slogans about the freedom 
of foe-individual, filched from the 
Thatcher revolution, would look 
more convincing if the whole bent 
of Labour Party policy since 1945 
had not been towards interven- 
tion. The average voter does not 
need to have, pored over Sic Isiah 
Berira'-s essay on the two meanings 
of liberty to-realize that the new 
campaign's promises to “free”, 
people from poverty, bad housing 
and long waits in the health clinic 
do not amount to a promise to 
“free” them from bonds that they 
may well want to lose even 
more — namely the constraints of 
well-meaning social engineering 
and accompanying high taxation 
that' have , been at the 'heart of 
British socialism since the Webbs.' 
./However, let us give the Labour 
publicists their due and assume! 
that, then 1 .: efforts suppress-aiT 
awkward echoes from thepast and 
biurr all doubtful intimations 
from the future. In short, suppose 
the new image sticks. What then? 

For the Conservatives; the ef- 
fects look mixed. Their lonely 
isolation at the apex of the triangle . 
becomes more uncomfortable; 
Affiance and. Labour attacks on 


the government’s record, being 
s imilar , reinforce each other. But 
because the Conservatives are 
now the only surviving propo- 
nents of “conviction” politics, 
they have the advantage of being 
able to look more positive and 
assertive than their ~ opponents. * 
The instinctive dete rminatio n of 
Mrs Thatcher and Nonna nTeb bit 
to produce a radical manifesto for 
the next election is probably the 
strategy best suited to the new 
political situa tion; it makes a 
virtue out of necessity. 

For the Affiance parties, the loss 
of the “balance” image caused by 
the blurring of the distm e no n wi th 
La bour is a pity, since k deprives 
them of their claim to be the sole * 
occupants of the political centre. 
But it is not afi bad, s ince it tends 
to confirm their status as being on 
an equal footing with Labour. The 
crucial and uncertain question is 
what effect the new geometry, if 
firmly established, would have on 
tbe saleability of the A lli ance's 
main stock-in-trade - the pros- 
pect of a “hung” Parliament and a 
coalition government. 

After a lot of doubt and argu- 
ment, particularly oh the Liberal . 
tide. David Owen's strategy of 
malting ah electoral stalemate 
rather than an outright Affiance 
victory the main sales-pilch on 
doorsteps, has become firmly 
adopted. Tbe idea has been that by 
voting Alliance you are not just 
getting the most sensible policies; 
you are buying a veto over tbe 
unfettered tyranny of whichever 
“extreme” party you fear most. 

This appeal has worked pretty 
well at local leveL In par- 
liamentary by-elections it has 
encouraged tactical voting for tire 
Affiance; in local elections it has 
produced a -sizeable number of 
hung councils in which coalition 
government, or something that is . 
m practice verynear it, can be seen 
operating competently. The 
assumption has been that this line 
would be equally persuasive in a 
general election; if the Alliance 
held the national balance of 
power, neither Conservative nor 
Labour parties would be able to 
resist a deal — and at tbe 
handsome price of. abando n i n g 
‘extreme’ policies. 

But does this scenario have the 
same attraction if Labour ceases to 
look “extreme”? The best judge- 
ment is that it probably doesn't, 
but that the effect would be 
lopsided. On the one hand 
Tebbit's constant cry that a vote 
for the Alliance lets.in Labour will 
be less effectively frightening to 
Tory voters but, on the other, 
Kinnock’ s accusation that a vote 
for. the Alliance lets in the Conser- 
vatives will peck more punch. 

. ..The overall electoral arithmetic, 
in fact, favours the Kinnock. and 
Tgfcbit theses almost equally. Each 
needsihe Affiance to take enough 
votes to block its main opponent. 
But from the psychological point 
of view. Labour's new respectabil- 
ity, by isolating the Conservatives, 
may make an Affiance-Conser- 
vative coalition seem less de- 
sirable and an Alliance vote to 
keep out Labour less essential

up being called Wallis. And she 
also tells us about her first meeting ' 
with her future hus band 
“May, 1931. Today. I was

said he was thinking of Wallace 
Heaton. We all laughed.” 

Ufa often thought that foe Duke 
and Duchess of Windsor , took 
little interest in world affairs, but 
these newly discovered diaries 
prove this is not so. For instance; 
this sensational entry in 1937: 

“I am worried, about the am- 
bitions of Herr Hitler. Something 
tells me that they will lead to a 
European war in two years’ time,' 
and though I think that we shall 
have wop by about 1945. it will 
lead to much misery for Britain, 
culminating, I fancy, in aniH-faled 
attempt to. win the Suez .canal by 
force in about 1956. But the 
advent of rock'n'roll will do much 
to restore merriment to the nation. - 
J only wish I had not been called 
Wallis.” . 

This preoccupation' with her 
first name comes out " in another 
version of her first with 

the prince: - 

‘ “Jane, 1931. . Today I .was; 
presented for the first time to the 
Prince of Wales. ‘Wallis 
SimpsonT’ he said. ‘Is that not the 
name ofthe man who introduces

said he must be thinking of 
Wallace Grcenslade, and we all

-That these diaries are utterly 
genuine there can be no doubt At . 
the very end of the final entry: 
there is a handwritten . note: 
“These diariesare utterly genuine,

STOPOVER AT TOKYO 


President Reagan’s arrival in 
Tokyo today, after a leisurely 
ramble around die Pacific 
basin, starts the serious build- 
up io the weekend summit of 
seven world leaders. This sum- 
mit is the latest in a series that 
began in 1975 and travels 
circus-like from one 
participating country to an- 
other. 

Annual summits, which 
now involve America, Japan. 
West Germany. France. Brit- 
ain, Italy and Canada - in 
strict order of economic power 
- had as their original purpose 
the need to co-ordinate re- 
sponses to diverse threats to 
the world economy. The 
threats have altered in 11 
years, and so have fashions in 
economic co-operation. For 
seventies-style demand 
management, with images of 
locomotive economies, we 
have substituted exchange-rate 
management and interest-rate 
co-ordination. Strive as they 
may, however — and some 
have striven very hard — the 
leaders of the world economy 
have not managed to avoid all 
necessity to co-operate. 

Time and again, even the 
largest nations have been 
brought up sharp against the 
facts of interdependence in a 
world of fairly free trade and 
ever freer financial flows. The 
checklist of economic issues 
between the summit econo- 
mies. therefore, is as long as 
ever. 

Some have a ritual ring to 
them. Since 1975. summileers 
have regularly raised their 
standard against protec- 
tionism. Last year's summit 
occasion, in Bonn, was 
clouded by French refusal to 
sign up for the American plan 
to enliven the verbiage of the 
summit communique with a 
firm commitment to launch a 
new round of trade talks under 


the aegis of the General Agree- 
ment on Tariffs and Trade this 
year. Since last summer, how- 
ever, agreement has quietly 
been patched together, and the 
new Gatt round is due to be 
launched in September. It 
remains only for the Tokyo 
summileers to take note of the 
fact which should require little 
prior controversy. 

A more urgent trade issue 
has been created by Japan's 
enormous trade surplus, which 
has already topped $60 billion 
a year and will be rendered 
more visible (if not more 
disturbing to its western part- 
ners) by the falling cost of its 
oil imports. Unsatisfied by the 
Japanese Government's prom- 
ises to stimulate import spend- 
ing, the Americans and British 
in particular have been urging 
still more appreciation of the 
yen, and Japanese manufac- 
turers have been loud in their 
protests. Thus the first serious 
summit question is whether 
those governments which only 
last September signed up for 
co-operative currency manage- 
ment can reconcile their dif- 
ferences. At a time when the 
most important currency of all 
— the American dollar — has 
begun to look vulnerable, har- 
mony among the main official 
players in the currency market 
is an essentia] stabilising in- 
fluence. 

Linked to this disagreement 
is the squabble that has broken 
out between summit govern- 
ments as to the further 
possibilities for cuts in interest 
rates. This, however, reflects 
not only currency concerns but 
also anxiety about the rate of 
world economic growth. Most 
forecasts suggest this will pick 
up slightly, from last year, with 
the assistance of cheaper en- 
ergy. but to a pace which offers 
precious little hope of reducing 
European unemployment or 


floating the third world off the 
rocks of debt. 

In public, the summiteers 
cannot be confidently ex- 
pected to produce more than 
the latest brand of platitude, 
known by the codename 
“SNIG” - signifying the no 
doubt admirable objective of 
stable non-inflationary 
growth. In private, some 
resolution of European and 
American differences on prior- 
ities would be helpful. A 
further test of this summit, 
therefore, will be whether the 
present interrupted sequence 
of interest rate cuts is re- 
started by West Germany as 
an earnest of European intent 
to foster stronger economic 
growth. 

But the natural preference of 
heads of government for the 
broad political brush to the 
financial quill has widened the 
agenda of the summit year 
after year. Even before the 
disaster at Chernobyl added 
the fate of the world nuclear 
industry to the list of leaders' 
common anxieties, the ten- 
sions that have arisen with 
regard to Libya had elbowed 
economic concerns into sec- 
ond place. 

In retrospect, the need for 
international co-operation to 
enhance the growth prospects 
of these countries, and thus 
reduce the risk of international 
financial crisis or domestic 
social unrest, may perhaps 
seem more important that the 
recent quarrel between allies as 
to the proper way to check the 
terrorist activities of Colonel 
Gaddafi. On the first weekend 
in May, 1986, however, the 
most urgent need is to heal the 
breach between America and 
most of its European allies that 
gaped with the bombing of 
Libya. The prime test of this 
summit will be its success in 
that therapeutic task. 


THE SOVIET INTEREST IN COOPERATION 


There are moments in inter- 
nal ional life when the most 
exhausted pollical cliches sud- 
denly acquire an urgent rele- 
vance. Thus John Donne's 
assertion that no man is an 
island, which had previously 
been rendered pale and anae- 
mic by being too often quoted, 
seems an example of vital 
common sense when there is a 
radioactive cloud floating 
about Central and Eastern 
Europe. 

However poor the prospects 
for effective international co- 
operation in matters such as 
arms control or terrorism, 
where some governments may 
nourish the delusion that by 
judicious appeasement they 
can escape the general epi- 
demic. there can be no doubt 
that all governments have an 
interest in avoiding disasters 
like Chernobyl in their own 
country and in those of their 
neighbours. That gives govern- 
ments an interest in cooperat- 
ing with each other and with 
international agencies like the 
International Atomic Energy 
Agency. 

The Soviet Union has this 
identical interest along with 
other countries. Indeed, in- 
sofar as Chernobyl has dem- 
onstrated that Soviet 
standards in nuclear power are 
lower and the risks of disaster 
consequently higher, it has a 
greater interest in such co- 
operation than elsewhere. 


That may be questioned on 
the grounds that the initial 
Soviet response of secrecy and 
incapable self-reliance sug- 
gested no consciousness of 
sucb a common interest But 
the initial response may have 
reflected not a deliberate and 
conscious policy on nuclear 
power as such but the in- 
grained habits of Soviet soci- 
ety. It will not be possible to 
alter Soviet society in general 
to make it conform to a 
sensible policy of international 
cooperation, but plain self- 
interest may persuade the 
Soviet rulers to insulate nu- 
clear energy policy from gen- 
eral Soviet paranoia and open 
its nuclear plants to inter- 
national inspection. 

What makes this more than 
a utopian aspiration is that the 
Soviet Union has been pre- 
pared to participate in those 
international cooperative ven- 
tures. particularly of a scien- 
tific character, where it has 
seen a national advantage in 
doing so. It has played a useful 
role, for instance, in im- 
plementing nuclear non- 
proliferation where, as a 
superpower, it has an interest 
in limiting the membership of 
the nuclear club. It has also 
gone half-way in cooperating 
with the international regula- 
tion of nuclear power by, for 
instance, submitting details of 
its nuclear reactors to the 
IAEA. 


Following Chernobyl, it has 
an even greater interest than 
before in such regulatory co- 
operation since Western sci- 
entists are considerably more 
knowledgeable and experi- 
enced in this area. The West 
has an equal interest in learn- 
ing from the disaster in order 
to avoid a repetition. And 
everyone, as President Reagan 
pointed out on the first day, 
has an interest in assisting 
those suffering from radiation 
sickness who may run into 
thousands. 

What is immediately re- 
quired of the Soviet Union is 
that it should admit Western 
scientists and allow them to 
seek the answers to questions 
which, when stripped of their 
awesome technicalities, come 
down to: What happened? 
What were the safety measures 
in place? What are now the 
risks from radiation in the 
area? 

Looking ahead, the Soviet 
Union should in future admit 
IAEA officials to inspect safety 
and other standards in Soviet 
nuclear power stations instead 
of claiming the superpower 
exemption, as it has until now, 
of carrying out IAEA inspec- 
tions with its own officials. 
Openness to scientific regula- 
tion of this kind would at least 
begin to remove the stain of 
the Soviet Union's silence 
while a radioactive cloud 
floated towards its neighbours. 


ANZUS’S LITTLE LOCAL DIFFICULTY 


New Zealand and the United 
States would seem to be steer- 
ing towards a political col- 
lision in the South Pacific, 
which they will in lime come 
to regret. While the damage is 
not irreparable, the collision 
itself is avoidable and one of 
them at least should change 
course. 

It is fairly clear which one 
this should be. The Labour 
government in Wellington de- 
clined permission for the 
American destroyer Buchanan 
to enter a New Zealand port 
last Summer because of the US 
Navy's refusal to say whether 
or not it was carrying nuclear 
weapons. The Royal Navy 
which also has a policy of 
refusing to answer such ques- 
tions. has avoided a similar 
confrontation on its current 
Far East deployment only by 
leaving New Zealand off the 
list of warship visits. 

So far the anti-nuclear 
stance adopted by the Welling- 
ton government has been a 
matter of party policy. Legisla- 
tion which is due in August, 
however, will enshrine it in the 
country's constitution and 
make it much more difficult to 
reverse. Admiral of the Reel 
Sir John Fieldhouse. Chief of 


the Defence Staff, made 
known his concern in Fel> 
ruary and Lady Young, deputy 
Foreign Secretary, was simi- 
larly unequivocal on visiting 
New Zealand in April. 

This week, however, Wash- 
ington went further by making 
clear that it will end its defence 
commitments to New Zealand 
under the 35-year-old Anzus 
Pact if the legislation goes 
through. The treaty itself will 
remain in being. But to all 
intents and purposes New 
Zealand will be frozen out of it 
— for the lime being anyway. 

This might or might not 
worry 1 the New Zealand prime 
minister Mr. David Lange. He 
has himself described the 
South Pacific as a "pocket of 
tranquil lity". Even if it were 
not so. it is hard to see how its 
allies could stand aside in the 
unlikely event of New Zealand 
being attacked, treaty commit- 
ments or noL 

But the psychological im- 
pact would be considerable. 
New Zealand would be the 
first Western power to become 
disentangled from the web of 
treaties and alliances which 
have enmeshed the First 
Wurld since the post-war 
years. And for what? 


New Zealand can afford the 
luxury of a non-nuclear policy 
because of its abundance of 
alternative energy sources. No- 
one expects New Zealand to 
arm itself with nuclear weap- 
ons and few would complain 
if, like Norway or Denmark, it 
set itself against the stationing 
of nuclear weapons on its 
territory in peacetime. But to 
refuse permission for ships to 
enter its ports because they are 
nuclear-powered or because 
they might be carrying nuclear 
weapons is taking the policy to 
the point of caprice. To elevate 
this anti-nuclear gesture to the 
level of a constitutional prin- 
ciple combines eccentricity 
with self-indulgence. 

There have been murmurs 
about a compromise — one 
perhaps under which allied 
navies could avoid answering 
the crucial question and could 
then enter port on the basis of 
telling a half-truth. Thai may 
not be entirely satisfactory. 
But one must hope that the 
application of American pres- 
sure will persuade Mr Lange 
and his crew that by veering a 
little to starboard they would 
avoid an unnecessary 
confrontation with their 
country's friends. It is no time 
for un-splendid isolation. 


LETTERS TO THE EDITOR 


What Labour seeks to achieve 


From Sir Sigmund Sternberg 
Sir. It is not surprising that your 
editorial on Labour’s Freedom 
and Fairness campaign (April 24) 
disagrees with the party's policies. 
It is surprising that your com- 
ments are based on such a 
grotesque caricature of what a 
Labour government would ac- 
tually do. 

You write that “the price” of 
fulfilling Labour's policies “would 
be paid by every citizen's living 
standards". Every citizen? 
Labour's policies would help par- 
ents, pensioners and unemployed 
in direct cash terms — and. in the 
case of the unemployed people, by 
economic polices that would in- 
crease their hopes of finding work. 

In addition, by spending more 
on services such as health and 
education, Labour would improve 
the living standards of many more 
people — using “living standards” 
in its true sense, rather than the 
narrower, meaner concept of dis- 
posable cash income. 

In your following paragraph you 
refer to “Mr Hattersley's intention 
[of] using tax sanctions to enforce 
the repatriation of overseas invest- 
ment and. in addition, to make it 
go where bureaucracy dictates 
rather than where enterprise 
suggests”. 

Labour proposes to offer tax 
incentives to financial institutions 
to invest in Britain. Those institu- 
tions that choose to forgo those 
concessions will suffer 
“sanctions” only in the sense that, 
say, a shareholder in ICI faces 
"sanctions” because he or she has 
chosen to invest in an existing 
company rather than one covered 
by the tax concessions of the 
Business Expansion Scheme. My 
memory may be at fault, but I do 
not recall The Times condemning 
BES as a regime of “tax sanctions” 
against 1C1 shareholders. 


Your description of Labour's 
investment policy ignores not only 
what Mr Hattersley has said on the 
subject but also the dear evidence 
of what happened in Britain 
during the -past quarter-century. 
Has “enterprise” — to use your 
word - really been that successful 
at allocating financial reserves? I 
find it strange that you should 
appear to embrace so uncritically a 
system under which manufac- 
turing industry's share fell from 24 
percent to 1 1 percent of total UK. 
investment between 1960 and 
1983. 

I would propose an alternative 
analysis: that it is precisely be- 
cause of the bureaucratic 
characteristics of our “enterprise” 
institutions that we have wit- 
nessed such a failure to secure 
adequate industrial investment 
Too few banks, pension funds, etc 
are equipped to understand and 
meet the long-term financial 
requirements of a society feeing 
rapid technological change. 

The purpose of Labour's pro- 
posed National Investment Bank 
is to make up for this defidency. 
The NIB will be designed to 
operate dose to the companies it 
will support, both in the geo- 
graphic sense of allowing consid- 
erable regional autonomy and in 
the technological sense of employ- 
ing people with the skills to make 
sensible longterm investment de- 
cisions within each sector. The 
NIB's purpose is to avoid so much 
of the bureaucratic arthritis that 
seems to paralyse so many of our 
supposedly “enterprise” institu- 
tions. 

Yours faithfully,

nance and Industry Group),

Men less equal 
than women? 

From Mr D. G. Lindsay 
Sir. IC as Government seems to be 
proposing, women are given the 
right to continue working until the 
same age as men. without State 
pension ages being simultaneously 
equalised, the existing balance of 
disadvantage — women having to 
retire at 60 while men have to wait 
until 65 for pension — will be 
upset. Indeed, women who work 
on after 60 will then have all the 
advantages. 

They will pay no further NI 
contributions and yet will draw an 
increased (due to deferment) State 
pension on retiring, even if before 
65. while their male counterparts 
must continue contributions while 
working, and wail until 65 for 
merely the basic State pension. 
The position under most occupa- 
tional schemes will be the same. 

In the Orwellian farmyard of the 
working 60 to 64s the women will 
be far more equal than the men. 

Government may not be able to 
equalise State pension age at a 
stroke, but it could, fora start, deal 
with the 60 — 64 problem by 
requiring working women in this 
age range to pay the same NI 
contributions as do working men 
and by freezing State pension 
increase due to deferment at its 
then accrued figure. 

It would be a pleasant change to 
see Government acting on its own 
initiative in this matter instead of 
being shamed into action by 
Luxembourg or Strasbourg.

Teachers 9 dispute 

From Mr Roderick Thomson 
Sir. There is a sense — and a 
former senior Civil Servant of the 
distinction of Sir William Pile 
(April 23) must know this — in 
which every conscientious and 
fully aware teacher re-dedicates 
himself or herself daily to pupils 
and to their emotional develop- 
ment and educational progress. Sir 
William's analysis concerns “the 
unions” in general and the NUT 
in particular, but it does not touch 
upon the pith of the individual 
teacher's feelings or on his or her 
economic, social and cultural 
situation. 

When a profession loses one 
third of its buying power in six 
years the question of pay is bound 
to become obsessional as such a 
reduction goes far beyond a mere 
decline in income; for some it 
means nothing less than a down- 
ward journey on the social scale. 
At that prospect teachers have 
now become obdurate. 

When the national chief of all 
educational activity, the Secretary 
of State for Education and Sci- 
ence, sets out habitually to dis- 
parage almost every aspect of the 
teaching profession in sweeping 
terms, morale tends to sink. 
Demoralization has. in fact set in 
at all points between the play 
group arid the Sheldonian, includ- 
ing the public schools and the 
great grammar schools of the 
North. 

On GCSE die main tactic, if one 
can call it that, has been coercion. 
The enormous extra workload for 
teachers, its implications and 
scales of payment are, so far as the 
DES is concerned, to go com- 
pletely undiscussed. 


I believe Sir William Pile is 
wrong to say that the replacement 
of the Secretary of State will not 
make a difference. The loss of 
faith in Sir Keith is now deep and 
widespread. It is quite unlikely 
that things can pick up at all in our 
schools until he has left the DES. 
Only when he has gone will the 
Cabinet be able to plan and 
obtain, in a fresh atmosphere, the 
just and restorative compact be- 
tween the partners in education 
that teachers and parents thirst 
for. 

Yours faithfully,

From the General Secretary of the 
National' Association . of 
Schoolmasrers/Union of Women 
Teachers 

Sir, Your Education Correspon- 
dent, Lucy Hodges (Spectrum, 
April 25) does an injustice to the 
National Association of 
Sdboolmaslers/Union of Women 
Teachers (NAS/UWT) when she 
asserts that its boycott of GCSE 
preparation is merely a sanction 
on pay. The NAS/UWT has no 
current sanction on pay. . It is 
leading the talks at Acas in the 
hope of securing a peaceful solu- 
tion to the pay problem. 

NAS/UWT sanctions on GCSE 
remain for there is no provision to 
accommodate the enormous addi- 
tional workload that will be 
generated by many factors, prin- 
cipally continuous assessment 
Yours faithfully, 

FRED SMITHIES,

Austria's President 

From Mr George Ivan Smith 
Sir. British national newspapers 
refrain from involvement in the 
elections of another nation. In the 
case of Austria's presidential elec- 
tion an exception has been made, 
correctly I think, to take heed of 
Dr Waldheim's as yet undisclosed 
and uncertain role in the Nazi 
repression in southern Europe. 
The Times (April 4). and now The 
Guardian (April 25). in editorials 
suggest that he should withdraw 
from the election for the sake of 
Austria. I submit that higher 
considerations oblige him to ac- 
cept that advice. 

Thousands of international civil 
servants like myself served under 
him. 1 served under his three 
predecessors, too. There was no 
blemish on their record. In Dr 
Waldheim's case there is doubt 
Unless he chooses to dear the 
record before he achieves his aim 


to be president of his own country 
he leaves the international appa- 
ratus damaged. 

Of all high offices, that of the 
UN Secretary General must be 
seen as having been held by the 
trusted custodian of the principles 
of the UN Charter. Its holder must 
be seen as having upheld those 
principles in every aspen and 
detail of his life. Without that 
individual commitment the al- 
ready frail vessel of international 
organisation which carries the few 
seeds of international order is put 
further at risk and we who served 
it are rendered no service by 
example from the man who led us. 

It is the honour and integrity in 
international service, not just that 
of Austria, that is at stake. 

Yours faithfully, 

GEORGE IVAN SMITH,

Doctors 9 dilemma 

From Dr M. J. L. Hopkins 
Sir. Your leading anide today 
(April 23), “No surgery for the 
surgeries”, realises the dilemma 
the Government is in in trying to 
improve family health care with- 
out being accused of dismantling 
the “still popular NHS." 

At present, general practitioners 
contract with the Government to 
provide care for their patients. 
This includes arranging out of 
hours cover, organising surgery 
premises and providing locums. 

GPs have to achieve fairly large 
lists to maintain income and 


How long, O Lord? 

From Mr Robin Kimber 
Sir. Mr Selman (April 29). 
commenting upon the length of a 
voluntary broadcast from Lich- 
field Cathedral, should thank his 
lucky stars. Liszt's “Ad Nos ad 
Salutarein Undam", in the rep- 
ertoire of both Lichfield organists, 
clocks in at around 30 minutes. 

Is that long enough? 

Yours faithfully.

although the resulting system of 
primary care is without frills in 
some instances, it is provided at a 
cost that is theenvy of the world. 

As elsewhere, general practice 
has been squeezed — increased 
expectations, reduced pay awards, 
more accountability and the lim- 
ited list of available drugs. .Further 
reform has problems: a voucher 
system will encourage inequality 
of care with migration of GPS to 
areas where the consumer will pay 
more: pavment by results is 
attractive out many GPs feel it is 
unworkable and it will cost 
money: reducing list sizes would 
increase surgery time and make 
the acquisition of new patients 
more attractive to the individual 
GP. It would cost a lot more 
money. 

If no more money is available 
Mr Fowler should concentrate his 
resources on areas of need already 
identified and ignored during the 
lengthy preparation of his Green 
Paper.

Abdication memories 

From Mr Lewis Golden 
Sir, In his defence of the Duke and 
Duchess of Windsor your 
correspondent John Grigg (fea- 
ture, April 25) attempts to soften 
the serious mistake' of their 1937 
meeting with Hiller by likening it 
to the appearance of the King and 
Queen on the balcony of Bucking- 
ham Palace with Neville 
Chamberlain when he returned 
from signing the Munich Agree- 
ment in 1938. 

Both were manifestations of the 
spirit of appeasement then 
overwhelmingly prevalent, your 
correspondent writes; but there 
was all the difference in the world 
between the Windsors paying a 
private call on the German Chan- 
cellor, which could do nothing 
except help build his international 
prestige, and the Prime Minister 
being received by the Monarch 
after negotiating with Hitler in an 
attempt to avoid a threatened 
global war.

Libyan students 

From Mr E. Turnbull 
Sir. I cannot gainsay the motiva- 
tions of protecting UK security 
which have induced the Minister 
of Transport and others to decide 
upon expelling various students 
from this country; but I felt an 
instinctive sense of revulsion 
when 1 heard that some of these 
individuals bad been held in 
common prisons pending their 
deportation. 

Presumably not all of them are 
under criminal charges; in some 
cases, at least, therefore this is a 
form of dispute between nations 
in which individuals are increas- 
ingly being caught up. Where 
individuals are being expelled for 
national and not individual crim- 
inal reasons, is it loo much to 
expect that the UK will behave in 
its national traditions of dignity 
and restraint, e.g.. by holding such 
people in military or naval 
establishments under military 
guard, and not treating them as if 
they were common criminals? 

One of the most potent UK 
exports since 1945 has been 
science, technology and education 
— UK-trained “experts” have 
spread a huge influence for good 
will throughout public life abroad. 
How foolish it would be if the 
Government destroyed the world- 
wide advantages of such influence 
by failing to observe minimal 
courtesies in the present sad 
situation.

Police uniformity 

From Mr F. J. E. Hurst 
Sir. After watching last night's 
(April 24) fascinating BBC TV 
programme Crime-watch . with its 
variety of police telephone num- 
bers. I am left wondering why it is 
apparently not practicable in most 
cases for the various police head- 
quarters throughout the country to 
have identical telephone numbers. 
Only the dialling codes need be 
different. 

The same policy could be 
usefully applied also to other 
major services. 

Does anyone have an objection 
to this?

HITLER DEAD 



DONITZ AS HEAD 


OF STATE 

The first indication of the death 
of Hitler was given at 9.30 - 
p.m.when Hamburg radio an- r _ 
nounced that “a grave and impor- 
tant announcement to the German 
people will be made shortly". From 
then until the announcement sol- ’ 
emn music of Wagner and the slow 
movement of Bruckner’s 7th Sym- 
phony was played. Then the an- - 
nouncer said:- 

“It is reported from the Flihrer’s - 
headquarters that our Fiihrer, . 
Adolf Hitler, has fallen this after- 
noon at his command post in the 
Reich Chancery fighting to the last - 
breath against Bolshevism and for 
Germany. 

“On April 30 the Fiihrer ap- . 
pointed Grand Admiral Dfinitz as 
his successor. Our new Fiihrer will 
speak to the German people.” 

In his radio talk to the German = 
people Donitz said:- 

" German men and women sol- * 
diers of the German Wehrmacht 1 . 
Our Fiihrer, Adolf Hitler, has r 
fallen. The German people bow in . 
deepest mourning and veneration. - 

“He recognized beforehand the 
terrible danger of Bolshevism and 
devoted his life to fighting it. At 
the end of this, his battle, and his 
unswerving straight path of life, 
stands his death as a hero in the 
capital of the Reich. Ail his life 
meant service to the German 
people. His battle against the 
Bolshevist flood benefited not only 
Europe but the whole world. 

“THIS FATEFUL HOUR” 

“The Fiihrer has appointed me 
as his successor. Fully conscious of 
the responsibility. I take over the 
leadership of the German people at 
this fatefril hour. It is my first task ' 
La save the German people from 
destruction by the Bolshevists and 
it is only to achieve this that the ■ 
fight continues. 

“As long as the British and 
Americans hamper us from reach- 
ing this end 'we shall fight and - 
defend ourselves against them as ; 
welL The British and Americans 
do not fight for the interests of 
their own people, but for the 
spreading of Bolshevism. 

“What the German people have 
achieved and suffered is unique in 
history. In the coming times of 
distress of our people I shall do my : 
utmost to make life bearable for 
our brave women, men, and 
children. 

“To achieve all this I need your 
help. Trust me; keep order and 
discipline in towns and the coun- 
tryside. Everybody do his duty. 
Only thus shall we be able to 
alleviate the sufferings which the 
future will bring to each of us and 
avoid collapse. If we do all that is in 
our power to do. the Lord will not 
abandon us.” 

“HE STAKED HIS LIFE” 

An order of the day by Admiral 
Donitz as “supreme Commander of , 
the Wehrmacht '* was then read, it 
said:- 

German Wehrmacht — my com- 
rades. The Fiihrer has fallen. He , 
fell faithful to his great idea to save - 
the peoples of Europe from Bolshe- . 
vism. He staked his life and died 
the death of a hero. With his 
passing one of the greatest heroes 
of German history has passed ! 
away. 

In proud reverence and sorrow 
we lower our flags before him. The 
Fiihrer has appointed me his 
successor as head of the State and 
supreme commander of the Ger- 
man Wehrmacht. I assume su- ' 
preme command of all units of the 
German Wehrmacht with the de- 
termination to continue the strug- 
gle against Bolshevism until the 
fighting troops and the hundreds of 
thousands of families of the Ger- 
man eastern territories are rescued 
from enslavement or 
extermination. 

Against the British and Ameri- 
cans 1 shall continue the struggle so 
far and so long as they hinder me in 
carrying out the fight against 
Bolshevism. 


A lawyer’s worth 

From Mr Ansel Harris 
Sir, Is not Bruno Marmorstein 
(April 22) failing to see the 
difference between traditional and 
antiquated reward differentials 
and the vital role of current 
market forces to determine salary 
and wage rates? 

His letter puts me in mind of the 
experience of a friend of mine, a 
GP, in Israel last year. He called a 
plumber to dear a drain (It took 
15 minutes). The total charge, 
indudira call-out, was $60 (At the 
time of high inflation. Israelis 
thought ana talked in dollar 
terms). 

My friend remonstrated. He 
was a GP. He could not afford 
such charges: they were higher 
than he could command when he 
was called ouL 

The plumber agreed. When he 
was a GP. he saidL his experience, 
had been the same. 

Quantum meruit. 

Yours faithfully.

Mr Robert Stevenson, the 
British -bom dircaor of such 
Hollywood hits as .Vary 
Poppins and other PpP^r 
family films, died m Califor- 
nia on April 30 ai the age of 
81. 

He was an unpretentious 
craftsman who worked wtth 
equal proficiency on a variety 
of subjects and relied on the 
virtues of well constructed 
stories and strong narralives- 
He always said his main object 
as a film maker was a happy 
audience and his popular 
touch was confirmed in a 
survey by the trade paper. 
Variety, in 1977, which put 
him among the cinema's most 
commercially successful 
directors. 

Bom in London in 1905. 
and educated at Cambridge 
University, he started his 
working life as a journalist 
before entering films as a 
scriptwriter at Gainsborough. 
He made his first film as a 
director in 1932 and among 
his early pictures were Tudor 
Rose . a biography of Lady 
Jane Grey, and King 
Solomon’s Mines, with Paul 
Robeson. 

In 1939 he went to Holly- 
wood. where one of his first 
films was. ironically, a British 
subject. Tom Brown's 
Schooldays. In 1944 he made a 
powerfully atmospheric ver- 
sion of Jane Eyre, with Joan 
Fontaine in the title role and 
Orson Welles as Mr Roches- 
ter. The film's baroque style 
owed much to . Welles's 
influence. 

In complete contrast- was 
the. quasi-documentary thrill- 



er. To the Ends of ihe Earth / 
about the hunt for a narcotics 
gang. 

Stevenson began a 20-year 
association with Disney in 
1957 and was responsible for 
some of the studio's most 
successful pictures. His biggest 
hit. Mary Poppins. deveriy 
combined animation and five 
action for the story of an 
Edwardian nanny and her 
magic umbrella. It won -five 
Oscars and. made a star of its 
leading. lady, Julie Andrews. 

.Among his nearly twenty 
other films for Disney, all of 
them aimed fair and square at 
the family audience, were Old 
Yeller. The Absent-Minded 
Professor. ■ The Love Jtug, 
Bedknobs and Broomsticks 
and One cf Our Dinosaurs is 
Missing.. He retired front the 
cinema ip 1 977- - 

He also directed some. JO0 
television shows. . ind tiding 
episodes for Alfred Hitckcock 
Presents and Gunsnwke: : . 


RIGHT REV JOHN BAKER 


The Right Rev John Gilbert 
Hindley Baker, who. died on 
! April 29 at the age of 75,. 
became the fust bishop to 
ordain an English woman to 
the priesthood 

As Bishop of Hong Kong 
and Macao from 1966 to 1981 
he ordained Miss Joyce Ben- 
nett of the Church Missionary 
Society and Chinese-born 
Miss Jane Hwang Hsieti Yuen 
in 1971. 

There was a precedent for 
such an action in this pioneer- 
ing diocese: Baker’s predeces- 
sor. the Right Rev R. 0. Hall 
had ordained a Chinese dea- 
coness in 1944. But this was a 
wartime expedient designed to 
cope with a pastoral need, and 
was repudiated by the 1948 
Lambeth Conference. Baker's 
action had the prior assent of 
the Anglican Consultative 
Council. 

Educated at Westminster 
School and Christ Chitich. 
Oxford.' he was ordained in- 
1935. 

He was London secretary 
for the Student Christian 


Movement from 1932-J4 be- 
fore going 1 China where he 
served' until 1951. 

He then spent three years in 
the- American Church before 
returning to London where be 
was General . Secretary of the 
Church Assembly's Overseas 
Council. - ' 

By 1966 Baker was in Hoag 
Kong as Director of theOuis- 
tian Study Centre on Chinese 
.religion and culture. After 
Bishop .Hall's retirement it 
had been forecast that that 
Chinese Christians would opt 
for a Chinese bishop. In the 
event they chose Baker. 

. Fluent in Mandarin and 
Cantonese, he wrote several 
books on the Anglican Church 
in China: ^ The Changing Scene 
in China (1946) and - The 
Church on Asian Frontiers 
(1963). and he expounded his 
views on the ordination of 
women, in a contribution to 
ihe^pcbU cation Yes to Women 
Priests{ 1978). ' . 

Returning to Britain he 
became Assistant Bishop of 
Guitfordin 1983. 


SIR MICHAEL CRESWELL 


Sir Michael Creswell. 
KCMG, who died on April 25, 
aged 76. had a varied career in 
the diplomatic service, and 
was a former Ambassador to 
Argentina. 

Educated at Rugby and 
New College, Oxford, he en- 
tered the foreign service in 
1933 and served in Beilin, 
Madrid, Athens, Tehran and 
Singapore, before becoming 
Minister at Cairo from 1951 to 
1954. 

He was Ambassador at Hel- 
sinki, 1 954-58, Senior Civilian 
Instructor at the Imperial 
Defence College, 1958-60, 
Ambassador at - Belgrade. 
1960-64, and,, finally, at Bue- 
nos Aires from 1964 to 1969. 

Creswell was never a con- 
ventional diplomat He had 
French forebears and never 
lost a French “r”. 

In bis early, days at the- 
Foreign Office, he tried the 


patience of Ralph Wigram, his 
head of depa r tment, flying an 
old Bristol. Fighter to France at 
weekends and sometimes get- 
ting stuck there. He eventually 
crashed in Spain. 

At Madrid, during the War, 
he was largely responsfbte for 
organizing the safe .'.passage 
through Spain of hundreds of 
escapers from occupied 
countries.' 

Creswell had much charm 
and a h umorous quizzjcal eye. 
He was an exceptional linguist 
and entered with zest into the 
life of every country in which 
he served,, travel! mg widely^ ' 

. In the long summer days In 
Finland, with his boat and a 
house on a small island, bis 
friends enjoyed memorable 
holidays. He was a fine shat 
with a rifle and brought to his 
home in Surrey trophies from 
many lands.

Mrs Jeannie Hoskins, who. 
through her agency. Celebrity 
Service, became an informa- 
tive part of the London social 
scene: has died after a long 
illness. She was 77. Born in 
Scotland. Jeannie Hoskins 
built an independent career in 
an era when it was less 
fashionable and more difficult 
than it is now for a woman. 

Celebrity Service was 
launched in ihe early 1950s. It 
soon became a successful busi- 
ness based on a brilliant and 
unusual idea: a bulletin in- 
forming its many clients of the 
.arrivals and departures from 
London of important' people

I The first film scripted by the drama- 
tist Snoo Wilson, Shadey is styled by 
is makers “a surrealist black 
comedy", and as such is a brave, rare 
attempt to introduce fantasy to the 
British screen. The mercurial Antony 
Sher plays Oliver Shadey, a bankrupt 
motor mechanic with, a supernatural 
ability to transform other people's 
thoughts into 8mm movie imag ps, 
and a burning ambition to raise 
money for his sex change operation. 

He sells his oils to a banker 
(Patrick Macnee)for the purposes of 
industrial espionage, but finds him- 
self traded to the Ministry of Defence, 
who fbrseeably abuse his talents while 
rewarding him with bureaucratic 
parsimony. Shadey meanwhile re- 
mains involved in the peculiar family 
affaire of the banker, who has a 
beautiful daughter, incestuous de- 
sires, and a mad, malevolent wife 
who eats coal and castrates tiresome 
party guests with a kitchen knife. 

Snoo Wilson’s inventions are exu- 
berant, and as director Philip Saville 
follows their gyrations with dexterity. 
As things progress, however, the 
uneasy feding grows that the film, for 
all its topical references, is no more 
than a series of turns, not really going 
anywhere or saying anything; and a 
iamefinale seems only to confirm the 
fear. Sequences like the filming of a 
commercial with a cast of mongoloid 


children appear to be thrust in simply 
for effect and with little regard to their 

relevance. 

It is written with a kindly eye to the 
actors, and in particular provides 
Sher with a show-off role for his first 
cinema appearance. Sometimes in- 
deed the show-off gels the upper 
hand, as in a Buster Keaton parody at 
a party and the arch drag sequence at 
the end of the film. There are 
enjoyable peformances, in the carica- 
ture manner of the film, by Macnee, 
Katherine Hehnond as the mad lady. 
Bernard Hepton as a myopic com- 
muter who works for Intelligence and 
Billie Whitelaw as an M.O.D. lady 
with a taste for natty gents' suitings. 

Zina Brocstein was the eldest 
daughter of Lev Davidovich Bran- 
stein, alias Leon Trotsky. Her father 
left Russia and his family in 1902, 
when Zina was two, and their 
subsequent connections were slight. 
Zina seems nevertheless to have 
idolized her father from a distance, 
mid to have committed herself pas- 
sionately to his political beliefs. In the 
[ate Twenties she finally joined him 
for nine months in his exile on the 
Turkish island of Prinkopo. While 
apparently attracted by her intelli- 
gence and insights, Trotsky became 
aware of Zina’s deep emotional 
disturbance, and sent hex for analysis 
in Berlin, where she committed, 
suicide during the period of the fesdst 
rise to power. 

The true story is more engaging 
than the film Zina, which Ken 
McMullen, with his co-scenarist Ter- 
ry Jones, has wrested from it Zina ■ 
exemplifies the danger of being too 
theoretical, of imposing style rather 
than letting style develop organically 
from the subject The film is framed 
by Zina's sessions with her Berlin 
psychiatrist, and constructed around 
her memories, dreams and ima- 
ginings. One line follows Trotsky’s 
life and political reflections; another 
follows contemporary events (the 
Revolution, Civil War, Stalin, Hitler 
and, as an epilogue, the Second 
World War); a third, citing Antigone, 

bints at parallels with plassirnl 

tragedy. 

A serious subject does not in itself

A show-off role for the mercurial Antony Sher in his first film, Shadey 


performances by Dommana Gior- 
dano as Zina and Philip Madoc as a 
faintly pompous Trotsky. 


The Jewel of the Nile is a heavy- 
handed sequel to Romancing the 
Stone. The new director, Lewis 
Teague, lacks the deftness of Robert 
Zemeckis; and the earlier film clearly 
owed much ofits wit and whimsy also 
to the writer Diane Thomas, who 
subsequently died in a car accident 
(A title dedicates the film to her 
memory and that of three men killed 
in an air crash while scouting 
locations for the film.) 

Michael Douglas (adventurer), 
Kathleen Turner (romantic novelist) 
and Danny DeVito (pint-sized come- 
dy villain) this time find themselves 
in North Africa, committed to 
effecting the downfall of a fanatical 
dictator and usurper. The curiosity of 
the film lies in its prophetic parallels 
to current events and its insights into 
popular American fallacies about the 
Third World and foreign policy. 
Natives of North Africa are shown 
either as fiendish assassins or retard- 
ed, happy children out of National 
Geographic, and of course no dusky 
dictator has a chance against a 
resourceful American hero letting fly 
with triumphant whoops of “Yeah — 
right!”. 

The script of The Jewel of the Nile 
is by Mark Rosenthal and Lawrence 
Konner, who also wrote The Legend 
of Billie Jean, a tale at least as 
unlikely. It is a juvenile Bonnie and 
Clyde ; with elements of Sugarland 


Express thrown in — which is not 
surprising since the director, Mat- 
thew Robbins, was writer on that 
earlier fantasy of a fugitive who 
becomes a folk-hero. 

Billie Jean is a nice girl from the 
wrong side of the tracks who takes to 
the road with her kid brother after a 
run-in with a redneck, rapist store- 
owner and his horrible son. As a 
champion of kids’ rights, modelling 
herself on Jean Se berg’s Saint Joan, 
she rallies the youth of Texas with her 
battle-cry of "Fair is fair". The story 
becomes sillier as it goes along; the 
main compensation is the fresh and 
lively playing of Helen Slater and 
Christian Slater (no relation). 

In Flesh and Blood the Dutch 
director Paul Verhoeven, who has 
made a reputation of sorts with 
vaguely any sex and sensation, turns 
his attention to the period spectacu- 
lar. This American-tacked film, with 
its ludicrous, anachronistic, four- 
letter English dialogue, imagines a 


violent society somewhere in Europe 
at the turn of the sixteenth century. 


at the turn of the sixteenth century. 
Rutger Hauer leads a band of 
marauding mercenaries, who dress up 
in red clothes and proclaim them- 
selves a commune. It is an unremit- 
ting farrago of rape, revenge, pillage, 
slaughter, torture and more rape tor 
good measure Hauer's miraculous 
escape from death in his burning 
castle at the end of the film is an 
ominous sign that we may be in for a 
sequel to this one loo.

has just a balcony at the side 
(this is Cherubino’s route of 
escape). Only in the third do

for the fourth.

The trouble is that this 
scheme has little to do with 
foe opera, whose resolution is 
not gradual but sudden. More- 
over, in order to avoid foe 
threat of claustrophobia in foe 
first two acts, John Byrne’s 
sets are obliged to indude 
some puzzling architectural 
features, quite apart from foe 
Jugendstil open-work panels, 
that look odd in interiors that 
are otherwise faithful to the 
eighteenth century. 

The other trouble is that Mr 
Cox's general plan is not 
matched by any subtlety in the 
presentation and handling of 






Sensual charms: Diana Montagu* and Jonathan Summers as Cherubmo and the Count 


foe characters. The experience 
is rather like that of flicking 
through an album of photo- 
graphs of Mozart productions 
30 or 40 years old: there are 
the same decorous smiles, the 
knowing gestures, foe plain 
ranks of front-faced soloists 
doggedly going through en- 
sembles. 

Much therefore rests on foe 
singing, and only three mem- 
bers ofthe cast are equal to the 
enormous burden they have to 


cany; Diana Montague as 
Cbenibino, Jonathan Sum- 
mers as foe Count and Rosa 
Mannion however briefly as a 
delicious Barbarina. 

Miss Montague is a great 
pleasure: one might imagine 
that the ability to sing Mozart 
was a lost art were it not for 
her. and she portrays foe 
amorous, sensual youth with 
great sensitivity and neatness 
of observation. Mr Summers 
also cuts a sensual figure, in 


the way he stands and moves 
(he is helped by the pro- 
duction's most striking cos-’ 
tumes) and in the dark 
strength of his singing, artfully 
worked around a bullish bel- 
low. Roderick Earle's Figaro is 
also dark-toned, but too much 
spoken, and Isobel Buch- 
anan’s Susanna gives cause for 
concern in the lack of vocal 
control.

We must be getting spoilt A 
few years ago the combination 
of Mozart's and Mahler's 
most imposing symphonies in 
one programme would proba- 
bly have packed the Festival 
Hall, whereas it was not much 
more than half full for this, 
visit by -foe Hallfe O r c h estra. 
Bui here was an absolutely 
magnificant performance of 
Mahler’s Sixth Symphony, 
one which did justice to a great 
work and which ako showed a 
thing or two to ’some London 
orchestras. 

Stanislaw Skrowaczewski is 
evidently one of those conduc- 
tors with an uncanny gift for 
tempo. One of the symphony's 
interpretative problems is 
finding exactly the right pace 
for the "• first movement's 
pounding march-rhythms, yet 
foe opening bars hoe unerr- 
ingly launched foe work’s 
massive structure: A brisk 
tempo for foe Scherzo necessi- 
tated some sharp gearchanges 
but brought out foe music’s 
underiymgtone of brutality to 
Startling effect 

. Skrowaczewsla’s wonderful 
structural sense was no less 
apparent m the Adagio, its 
poignant beauty captured in a 
shimmering blend of wind 
and strings. The Finale's ’gi- 
gantic trajectory came across 
with faultless lucidity, the 
conductor skilfully dove-tail- 
rag the slow, brooding materi- . 
al of foe Introduction into the 
tumultuous main Allegro. 

At all' points the orchestra . 
provided an object-lesson in 


Mahler-playing. The brass 
were powerful but never 
crude; foe strings delivered 
Mahler’s torrential semiqua- 
ver passagework with remark- 
able accuracy; in foe Adagio, 
the woodwind shone as re- 
quired. Earlier, Skrowacz- 
ewski had chosen to set 
Mozart's “Prague” Symphony 
in a cool climate (Scandinavia 
rather than Bohemia, I think) 
— not inappr opriate ly, given 
foe uphearab to come.

Something of foe impatience 
and cynicism so characteristic 
of our own decade seemed to 
tinge Dvorak’s Ninth Sym- 
phony on Tuesday in its 
performance by foe London 
.Philharmonic and Christoph 
Eschenbach. 

The sort of high adrenalin, 
whiplash treatment which 
could be justified, on one level 
at least, in Dvorak's Carnival 
Overture was meted out re- 
lentlessly in foe symphony. 
Eschenbach’s baton has a way 
of fashioning a deceptive skin 
of elegance and excitement by 
exploiting a work's surface 
energies: by pointing up foe 
subdivisions of a phrase, driv- 
ing every accent and honing 
brass and woodwind to knife- 
point. 

It creates, though, a per- 
forming tension which has j 
little to do with foe music's 


excitement to a sense of 
carping haste; and foe attenu- 
ated phrasing of the Largo, 
merely effete without the sup- 
port of any underlying mo- 
mentum, was poor com- 
pensation for foe sour cor 
anglais sola 

Some consolation was to be 
drawn from the memory of 
Justus Frantz's performance 
of Dvorak's Kano Concerto 
before the imervaL Paucity of 
matter and over-elaboration 
of manner has, it is true, 
pushed the work to foe edges 
of foe repertoire. And, al- 
though Frantz had skilfully 
tailored Dvorak’s occasionally 
unplayable version to his own 
fingertips, it is easy to see why 
it stays there. 

Orchestra and piano seem 
too often either to be search- 
ing for a raison d'etre or to be 
transmuting their indecisive- 
ness into rhetorical gesture to 
woo the applause which they 
were so readily granted. Ap- 
preciation was well deserved, 
though, for its gently medita- 
tive Andante, and for the 
conviction and enjoyment 
brought to its garrulous finale 
by Frantz himself.

Comic absurdity 


The Winter’s Tale 

Stratford 


The cover of the RSC pro- 
gramme presents a grim-faced 
Jeremy Irons wearing a crown 
from a Christmas cracker. As 
this is a Terry Hands produc- 
tion it would be misleading to 
say foal this sets the tone for a 
show that revels in tonal 
contrast, but it is certainly an 
accurate lead to the first acL 
Hie implication is that past 
performances have been over- 


Apart from Miss Barge, who 
comes over as a no-nonsense 
mother who has been played 
up once too often, no other 
characters emit any indepen- 
dent spark of life. Even Penny 
Downie's Hermione amounts 
to no more than a radiantly 
anonymous pattern of virtue; 
reduced, by foe production 
scheme, to another inert vic- 
tim from the toy-box. 


impressed by the figure of 
Leontes. How can such a man 


Leontes. How can such a man 
be taken seriously? — a hus- 
band who for no reason goes 
mad with jealousy and em- 
barks on acts o ' murder and 
impiety to puni ft his blame- 
less wife. He is na more a king 
than a child plaj ing the tyrant 
with his toy animals. 

Accordingly, the Sicilian 
court shrinks irto a nursery. 


and Mr Irons, tidtehily gnaw- 
ing his lip even before the 


onset of suspicion, offers a 
Leontes from whom every real 
trait has been studiously 
drained. Simultaneously fe- 
verish and furtive, he treats 
his court as a pack of slaves to 
be pushed about and scre- 
amed at if they put up the least 
resistance, to his wilL His 
delivery is an obsessional 
avalanche, halting with a 
screech on single tormenting 
words. Nothing exists outside 
his own fantasy; and, when the 
trial scene arrives, be gets busy 
stage-managing it himself 
hauling furniture about before 
drunkenly climbing on to the 
throne to defy foe judgement 
ofthe Oracle. 


Designed by Gerard How- 
land and Alexander Reid, the 
show is extremely beautiful. 
Sicilia, first glimpsed through 
a gauze tent, consists of an 
austerely furnished space 
with, behind it, a semi-trans- 
parent mirror which at once 
throws back liquid reflections 
of white-costumed figures and 
the image of a giant crystal 
turning to the implacable 
passage of time. When the 
action moves to Bohemia, 
white gives way to bold earth 
colours (the pace is evidently 
enjoying a wool glut), where 
the shearing party has echoes 
of Gauguin's Tahiti and even 
foe figure of Time descends in 
a winged fleece. 

The contrast is total; and yet 
the two worlds are visually 
related. To take one brilliant 
example, foe huge bearskin on 
foe first-act nursery floor later 
arises into foe gigantic preda- 
tor that devours Antigonus in 
that most recalcitrant of all 
Shakespeare's stage direc- 
tions. 


The obvious advantage of 
this is that it acknowledges 
Shakespeare's way of telling 
foe story. What happens hap- 
pens: and no psychological 
digging is going to disclose any 
buried motives. IC however, 
the performance is meant to 
cast any light on the nature of 
tyranny (foe programme also 
includes portraits of Amin 
and others) it fails, as foe 
prevailing effect is one of 
comic absurdity: as when Mr 
Irons puts a blanket over his 
head to escape the accusations 
of Gillian Barge’s Paulina, or 
where she thrusts his progeny 
into bis arms and he is left, 
gnashing his teeth. 


The hero of Part II is 
undoubtedly Joe Melia's 
Autolycus: one great clown 
played by another, and sup- 
ported by a splendidly full- 
blooded score from Nigel Hess 
which helps Melia to close the 
comic time-gap both in his 
solo numbers and in convert- 
ing the ballad scene into a 
company tango. Variously dis- 
guised in mendicant rags and 
as a fairground Abemazer, he 
excels in the light-fingered 
routines, but saves his best for 
foe end with foe two upwardly 
mobile shepherds when he 
starts banding things back. 

What the production does 
not prepare is foe final recon- 
ciliation between these two 
worlds. The events are staged 
with great elegance, but with- 
out the sense of natural magic 
or foe emotions of reunion.

Another 
800 jobs 
lost in 
Ulster 

By Richard Ford 

The ailing economy of 
• Norxhem Ireland yesterday 
received its third blow to jobs 
in a week as Rothmans, the 
cigarette manufacturer, an- 
nounced the closure of its 
plant with the loss of almost 
. 800 jobs. 

The Carreras plant at 
Carrie kfergus will close in 
August as pan of a plan to 
concentrate cigarette produc- : 
lion in northern England. 

The announcement is a 

■ serious blow for a province 
where the unemployment rate 
is 21.4 per cent and in particu- 
lar for east Antrim where 

- earlier this week, the General 

- Electric Company and a tool 
company announced nedun- 

■ dancies which bring the total 
job losses in the area to 1,013. 

Today the Industrial Devel- 
opment Board will issue fig- 
ures showing a substantial 
shortfall in its aim of 5.750 
new jobs in 1985. There is 
concern that political uncer- 
tainly is affecting investment. 

The board is having urgent 
talks with the management of 
Mac kies, a Belfast engineering 
company employing 1,000 
workers, after a bank suggest- 
ed a time limit of five months 
forihe repayment of a £7 mil- 
lion loan. 

Unionist politicians said the 
job losses were evidence of 
British commercial withdraw- 
al from the north, but the 
redundancies further highlight 
the decline of Northern 
Ireland’s manufacturing in- 
dustry and the growing reli- 
ance on public sector 
employment and the British 
Exchequer. 

In six years Protestant- 
dominated Camckfergus has 
lost more than 5.000 jobs with 
the closure of plants by 
Courtaulds and ICI and the 
cigarette factory was the last 
major manufacturing industry 
employer in the town. It 
supplied the whole UK mar- 
ket and is to shut because of 
Tailing sales due to the anti- 
smoking lobby and the last < 
budget increase of lip on a 
packet of 20 cigarettes. 


Night of violence sweeps through jails 


By Peter Evans 

Home Affairs 
Correspondent 

(Hie prison, Northeye in 
East Sussex, and enough cells 
to fill another, were pat out of 
action during rioting which 
swept through the jail system. 

Prisoners at Northeye 
gained control of the pH, 
causing extensive damage to 
buildings and burning them. 
Many prisoners surrendered 
to staff and police outside the 
prison. 

About 400 prisoners were 
taken into police custody and 
at one stage up to 40 were at 
large in the prison, possibly 
armed. Ten prisoners were 
unaccounted for, the Home 
Office said yesterday after- 
noon. There were no fatalities. 

There was serious trouble in 
at least 17 jails. Those 
included: 

• PentonviDe: Sit-down in ex- 
ercise yard by 20 inmates for 
an hoar and a halt 

• Leicester Sit-down in wing 
by 40 remand prisoners after 
staff disobeyed the governor’s 
order on controlled unlocking. 
There was a fall alert in the 
night 

• Castingtoa, Morpeth: A 
short, intense disturbance in 
the night Thirty cells might 
have been put out of use. 

• Deerbolt Co Durham: Cell 

b anging and nwtwnb, ypnp 

alight thrown from windows. 

• Pncklecharch, near Bristol: 
Brickwork in one wing dam- 
aged. Some fires in yara. 

• Highpoint Suffolk: S mall 
fires, one in roof of a nnit put 
ont by night staff. 

• Ashford Remand Centre, 
Middlesex: Passive sit-down 
by 40 inmates for an hour in 
the dining room. 

• Norwich: Disturbance in 
one wing. 

• Northallerton, North York- 
shire: Banging on cell doors. 

• Stafford: Fire on canteen 
root 

• Bristol: Sit-down in yard, 
fire in C wing, cell doors 
smashed to release other pris- 
oners. Some prisoners on reol 
others tried to break into one 
wing and administration 
Mock. More prisoners in staff 
room, hot-piates smashed, 
hampering breakfast prepara- 
tions. Police called to badly

224 inmates were moved.

Jail riot 
talks as 
officers 
end action 

Continued from page 1 

of government investment 
in the service, said the 
Labour government had ig- 
nored aU prison building. 
The prison officers’ action 
had been salutary for them. 

Speaking of toe need for 
early resolution of the dis- 
pute, Mr Gerald Kaufman, 
chief Opposition spokesman J 
on home affairs, said: “It is r 
here, especially after last 
nights events which could 
and should have been fore- 
seen, that the Home Secre- 
tary has inescapable 

responsibility.” 

The worst-affected jail 
was Northeye, two miles 
from BexfaOl town centre. 
East Sussex. Thirteen main 
buildings bousing 450 pris- 
oners were destroyed. After 
they were set alight flames 
were visible five miles away 
in Hastings. 

The trouble began when 
two officers were threatened # 
and others were sent in to 
escort them to safety. Ring- 
leaders were masked. The 
jail has a low security catego- 
ry and houses prisoners 
mainly convicted of 
dishonesty. 

There was serious trouble 
in at least- 17 jails. By 
yesterday morning, the 
Home Office was saying: 
“The current situation is 
stable. Staff have for the 
most part indicated their 
willingness to work under 
governors' directions.’* 

But nine prisoners staged 
a roof-top protest at Way- Jp 
land Prison, Norfolk, yester- 
day though two soon came 
down because it was cold. 

In Wiltshire the hunt con- 
tinued for 17 youths still on 
the run from Eriestoke. Po- 
lice from two counties were 
using a helicopter to scour 
the countryside. At 
Northeye, Iff prisoners were 
unaccounted forM^jpur pris- 
oners were detained irijios- 
pital with cuts out of.tjjit 
believed to have beorin- 
jured after more than. 9)0

Syndicates 

halted 


The committee of Lloyd’s 
insurance market has ordered 
two syndicates run by Posgate 
& Den by underwriting agency 
to cease writing new business, 
because they could not secure 
the necessary errors and omis- 
sions cover beyond April 3ft 

Marine syndicate 488/332 
and non-marine syndicate 839 
stopped writing business yes- 
terday. The other P&D syndi- 
cates have been transferred to 
alternative agencies with the 
approval of the committee. 

The two suspended syndi- 
cates are thought to have a 
capacity of about £110 mil- 
lion. Mr Michael Bassett, 
managing director of P&D 
said the board was making 
efforts to enable the syndicates 
to start trading again within 
days rather than weeks.

By Richard Thomson 
Banking Correspondent 
The competition in the 
mortgage market as the house- 
buying season gets into full 
swing intensified yesterday 
when the Trustee Savings 
Bank announced a new home 
loan package. 

- It includes a one percentage 
point cnl in its home lorn rate, 
the offer of free house contents 
insurance and a loan guaran- 
tee certificate to ' new 
borrowers. 

The offer of free home 
contents insurance — so for 
offered by no other lenders — 
is the latest in a series of 
special portages put out by 
mortgage institutions to at- 
tract new customers in .an 
increasingly competitive 
market. 

The TSB is reducing its 
mortgage rate from 12J to 
1 1.5 per cenL Although that is 
half a point above the rates 
by most banks and 
societies, it includes 
r protection insurance 
oh the Bra £50,000 of a loan. 
The bank says the cost of the 
insurance accounts for the 
extra 0.5 per cent charged on 
its mort g age rate. 

The TSB is introducing free 
home contents insurance to 
new borr o wers unto Septem- 
ber 30, although the offer may 
be extended. Tbe bank said 
that the saving on standard 
contents insurance cover 
would range from around £30 
to £270 a year but most 
customers would save about 
£60 as a result of the offer. 

The new mortgage package 
indudes a loan guarantee 
certificate valid for three 
months from the acceptance 
ofa mortgage application. The 
certificate will . guarantee the 
borrower a loan up to a 
specified amount during the 
three months as long as bis 
chosen property meets the 
TSB’s security requirements. 

The certificate is designed 
to ease a buyer’s negotiations 
with vendors and estate agents 
by giving him secure proof of 
access to a home loan. 

Although other 

institutions, such as Barclays 
and National Westminster 
banks, offer similar m 
guarantee certificates tbe ' 
contents insurance offer is so 
far unique in tbe mortgage 
market. 


• Mortgage tending by the 
building sodeties appears to

milli on more than the record- 
set in October. 

Advances should also reach 
record levels.

£357m cash call 
by Prudential 


The 


By Alison Eadie 

Prudential Corpora- 
tion, Britain's largest life as- 
surance company, yesterday 
announced a £357 miHion 
rights issue, the second hugest 
rights issue this year and the 
fourth largest on record. 

The one-fbr-five issue of 
603 million new shares Iras 
been priced at a substantial 
discount of 6Q0p against a 
dosing market price yesterday 
of tire Pro’s shares at 867p, 
down 25p. 

The rights issue is unusual 
in that it has not been under- 
written, something that has 
surprised the City where the 
Prudential earns significant 
underwriting fees. 

The decision not to have 
underwriters was made to give 
maximum benefit to share- 
holders. The saying will come 
to about £7 million. 

Mr Mick Newmarch, chief 
executive of Prudential Port- 
folio Managers, said that tbe 
money from the rights issue 
was not earmarked for any- 
thing specific, but was to show 
the Pm was alert to the large 
nranber of opportuniles aris-

financial services and the big

BP delays development 
of big N Sea oil field 


By Teresa Poole 

British Petroteran has for 
foe first ihna postponed the 
development of a big North 
Sea field because of the fall in 
world oil prices. 

Sir Peter ^ Walters, the drair- 
nran, said yesterday that plans 
fat the Miller field would be 
deferred for at least a year. 
Miller has reserves of about 
360 million barrels and its 
development was scheduled to 
start this year. This has now 
been put track to next summer 
at the earliest, leading to 
production by 1992. 

The field was discovered by 
Conoco m 1983 and, despite 
the cofiapsing oO price, has 
been considered one of the 
more robust of the recent 
North Sea projects. BP has 
nmghly a half share and the 
rest is owned by Conoco, 
Enterprise Q3, and Santa Fe. 

Sir Peter gave warning at 
BFs annual meeting that low- 
er ofl prices woald mean losses 
on company oil stocks of £500 
million daring foe first force 
months of this year, not in- 



Shr Peter Walters: Thin king 
of reappraising strategy 


He said there ought have to 
be a reappraisal of BP'S 
exploration strategy as funda- 
mental as that undertaken 


over foe past five years in foe 
refining and marketing busi- 
nesses. 

“The projected upstream 
expenditure has already been 
reduced by 20 per cent for 
1986. But it is the longer-term 
develoment of fields that is 
particularly in jeopardy,” he 
said. 

Sir Peter called on foe 
Governmentto revise radically 
the taxation policy in foe 
North Sea to provide financial 
resources for new investment. ' 

He pointed out that petro- 
leum revenue tax was in- 
creased in 1983 when high oil 
prices led to windfall profits 
for oil companies. 


Imperial Chemical Indus- 
tries yesterday won the final 
round of a four-year battle 
with tbe Government over lax 
concessions given to its main 
oil rivals. 

The House of Lords refused 
to allow the Government to 
challenge a Court of Appeal 
ruling last Febuaiy in ICTs 
favour. 

The Court of Appeal had 
ruled that tax concessions 
enjoyed by Shell, Esso and BP 
on the supply of the gas 
mixture ethane to affiliated 
companies constituted a “plan 
to grant aid” to the oil 
companies. 

Yesterday's decision is a 
serious blow for Shell and 
Esso's £500 million Moss- 
morran petrochemical plant 
in Fife. 

The new plant uses ethane 
as its feed stock and would 
have benefited from the tax 
concessions. 

The Inland Revenue con- 
ceded last night that it would 
now probably have to abide by 
the Appeal Court decision ana 
revise any valuation of ethane 
applied for tax purposes. 

ICI had claimed that the 
ethane tax concessions would 
have serious consequences for 
its own petrochemical plant at 
Wilton, Teesside, and could 
mean redundancies among 
foe plant's 9,000 workforce. 

The Wilton plant uses naph- 
tha gas as a raw material and 
would have been put at a 
competitive disadvantage by 
foe tax concessions eqjoyed by 
ethane-fed plants. 

BP'S ethylene making plant 
at Grangemouth, near Edin- 
burgh, also enjoys the ethane 
tax concessions. 

Tbe Government’s decision 
to make ethane a special case 
was an important factor in 
persuading Esso and Shell to 
go ahead with tbe 
Mossmorran project in 1981. 

Previously, the two oil com- 
panies had made clear the 
plant would not be built 
without financial assistance 
from the Government

Cathay flotation leaver 
BA on the runway 


The demand for shares in Cathay 
Pacific Airlines has proved 
overwhelming in Hong Kong, appar- 
ently surprising Baring Brothers but 
few others. Swire Pacific and the 
Hongkong Bank (which previously 
split ownership 70-30) have sold 22.5 
per cent of the highly profitable 
international airline largely for politi- 
cal reasons — to establish Cathay as 


an indisputably Hong Kong business 
transfer of the colony 


in front of the 
to China. So 7.5 per cent was passed 
to big local Chinese interests, prin- 
cipally Li Kashing’s Cheung 
Kong/Hutchison empire, with a fur- 
ther 6.5 per cent reserved for staff and 
local fund managers. In the event, the 
flotation was 55 times over- 
subscribed, with investors putting up 
a total of HK$51 billion (£4.25 
billion). 

After the tremendous welcome 
City analysts are already expecting 
the shares to open at between HK$5 
and HKS5.30 compared with the 
issue price of HKS3.88 when dealings 
start on May 15. There is already a lu- 
crative grey market in the Far East 

The distinction between the Ca- 
thay Pacifies and Singapore Airlines 
of the airline busines and predomi- 
nantly European and transatlantic 
carriers such as British Airways or 
KLM is striking. Cathay is forecast- 
ing earnings of at least HK$1 billion 
(£85 million) for the year but 
optimists are hoping for more, given 
buoyant traffic and some fall in fuel 
prices. Yet that will be accomplished 
with only 20 aircraft compared with 
nearly 160 at BA, which will do well 
to have earned much more than £200 
million pretax for the year just ended. 
Policies on aircraft depreciation and 


sales account for some of the dif- 
ference, but the real difference is that 
Cathay and SIA are young, fast- 
growing airlines, serving a lot of long- 
haul routes with young, modem 
aircraft. 

BA has a relatively young fleet 
overall by big airline standards, but 
still needs to spend £500 million a 
year for the next 10 years to replace 
its ageing fleet of jumbos. That 
process will not be helped by remain- 
ing in the public sector. Yet the 


prospects of flotation seem to push 
further beyond the horizon by the 


week. Lord King and his men now 
have to face the aftermath of Libya, 
although at least fuel prices are now 
moving in the right direction. 


The latest twist, the prospect of 
some further deregulation of Euro- 
pean routes after Wednesday’s judg- 
ment in the European Court, could go 
either way. BA certainly welcomes 
the move and is confident that it will 
be able to obtain a bigger share of 
markets against some flabby flag 
airlines, particularly in southern Eu- 
rope, if the judgment really has some 
effect But BA sees price flexibility in 
terms of special fares to fill planes 
rather than cuts on the businessman's 
routes and it remains to be seen if the 
licensing authorities open the door 
for a round of Laker-style 
competition. 

In Whitehall’s eyes, if not the 
City’s, the prospect of more Euro- 
pean deregulation seems unlikely to 
hasten the flotation of the world's 
favourite airline. It will have to grit 
its teeth as its Pacific cousins follow 
each other into the financial 
stratosphere. 


Sticky issues for sugar 


Tate & Lyle is well aware that its 
highly provisional counter-bid for 
S&W Berisford raises issues far 
beyond the conventional conun- 
drums of takeover battles. The 
competition with Hillsdown and 
conceivably with others is fun- 
damentally about the future and 
structure of the sugar industry in this 
country. Hillsdown so far has re- 
mained discreet on the deeper im- 
plications of its bid; as a potential 
monopoly Tate & Lyle had no choice 
but to bnng it out into the open. 

Tbe rival offers also raise questions 
about British monopolies legislation, 
which now seems, not least in the way 
it is interpreted by the Office of Fair 
Trading, the Monopolies Commis- 
sion and the Department of Trade, a 
faded and anachronistic copy of 
American statutes, drafted in another 
era for a different set of problems. 

By deliberately shifting its ground 
from arguments about a potential 
national monopoly where it is vulner- 
able to the realities of European 


competition Tate & Lyle has chal- 
lenged, as indeed Guinness did in its 
successful pursuit of Distillers, the 
narrow concepts normally applied in 
Britain. In essence does it make sense 
for a monopoly to be judged by 
domestic criteria when thebusiness is 
international and .open to com- 
petition from powerful foreign rivals? 

There is a third tier of argument 
about the bids for British Sugar. They 
should prod the Government out of 
the complacency which has charac- 
terized national sugar policy for too 
long. 

Tate’s bid stems partly from 
increasing concern about thin refin- 
ing margins. Behind the desire to take 
over British Sugar is the real danger 
that cane refining in Britain will cease 
one day. Yet the Government pro- 
fesses to want competition in the 
market. How is this to be maintained 
if — historically extraordinary as it 
may seem — Tate were to close its 
refineries? This week's interim fig- 
ures showed clearly that cane sugar 
refining is not profitable enough. 


Shell last night declined to 
comment on tbe implications 
of the House of Lords 

judgment.

Bank and Treasury poised

On Tuesday, tbe Bank will

April money supply figures,

However, the Chancellor. 

Mr Nigel Lawson, has said 
that inflation should be tbe

ter foe Treasury's freeing of

WALL STREET 


FOREIGN EXCHANGES 


New York (Renter) — Wall 
Street shares extended Wed 
nesday's losses at the start of 
trading yesterday, moving low- 
er on sheer momentum, trad- 
ers said. 

Shares ignored a modest 
early rise in credit markets 
and the dollar, which ndjght 
have been viewed as bullish. 
Carryover selling and weaker 
technical factors took pre- 
cedence. 


The Dow Jones indnstrial 
average dropped 5.95 points to 
1,778.03, adding to the week’s 
decline that began at the hi gh 
of about 1*850. Declines led 
advances by three to one on a 
volume of 19.1 million shares. 

The catalyst for the seOoff 
has been the Soviet nuclear 
disaster hot investors have 
been increasingly skittish over 
interest rates and the econo- 
my, traders said.

Good figures at Minet 
fail to lift PC W gloom 


Poor old Minei Holdings. Il 
produced 1985 pretax profits 
28.7 per cent higher at £30 
million and is believed to be 
on course for a leap of similar 
magnitude to £38 million 
profits this year. Bui the long 
shadow of the PCW affair is 
preventing its share price 
from reflecting its trading 
performance. 

Its shares were almost un- 
changed yesterday at 25 Ip. 
putting it on 3n historic rating 
of 1 2 and a prospective p/e of 
9.3. Willis Faber, the premi- 
um stock of I he sector, is 
trading on a prospective p/e 
of nearly 1 7. 

Yet. as Miner was keen to 
point out. ns compound tax- 
able profits growth rate over 
the past six tears has been 24 
per cent compared with 
Willis's 23 per cent and its 
earnings growth has been 23 
per cent compared with 
Willis's 2ft per cenL On pure 
trading grounds Mi net's 
shares should he al least 
35Hp. 

The difficulty »iih PCW is 
that it is impossible io qua mi- 
f> whai il may end up costing 
Minet. Wiih liiigation threat- 
ened. the company is under- 
standably not saying much. It 
made no further extraordi- 
nary provisions in I9S5. after 
£9.3 million in 1*98-4 relating 
to PCW. It is also slicking to 
its line that it has no legal 
liability for PCW names' 
losses. 

However, with Lloyd's 
now pursuing a market solu- 
tion. Minet is expected to be 
asked to put its hand in its 
pocket for perhaps 120 mil- 
lion or more. After being in 
ihc from line of the PCW 
affair lor several years. Minet 
must be taking comfort 1mm 
the fact i hat ihc 38 poienrial 
defendants of legal action by 
names include several other 
brokers. 

Meanwhile, on ihe trading 
from brokerage growth accel- 
erated in the second half to 
show 33 per cent underlying 
growth for the year. Profits 
would have been £3 million 
higher had 1984 end year 
exchange rates been used. 

TPS 


Technology Project Services 
(TPSl is an employment 
agency specialuing in the 
supply of engineering staff on 
a contract basis. Its main 
assets are its database of 
highly-qualified engineers 


who are available for work 
3 nd its list of client compa- 
nies who may need staff from 
time to time to work on 
specific projects. 

Us skill is in nialchjng the 
two - helping the diem to 
define his needs in terms of 
manpower and satisfying this 
requirement with the individ- 
uals on its books. 

The business began in 1 970 
as a British subsidary ofC&D 
Inc. which is now owned by 
the IIS Greyhound company, 
at a lime when this type of 

agency was fairly common in 

America but was almost un- 
known in Britain. 

Richard Avery, a senior 
manager ofC&D. spotted the 
potential and has built up the 
business from scratch. He 
organized a management 
buv-oui in July 1 9X4 lor £2 
million, or which £400.000 
cantc from TPS's manage- 
ment with the balance funded 
by institutions and bank 
loans. 

Less than two years later. 
TPS is seeking a full listing on 
the Stock Exchange by way of 
a placing of 41.1 per cent of 
its shares by J. Henry 
Schroder Wagg. the merchant 
bank. 

The placing price of 140p 
values the whole company at 
£ft.7 million. After ihe plac- 
ing. Mr Avery will be the 
major shareholder, with jusl 
under 30 per cent The bal- 
ance will largely be owned by 
the institutions who backed 
the original management 
buy-out. 

The prospectus does not 
contain a profits forecast, but 
nn earnings per share to 
December 31. 1985 of 7.9p. 
the shares will be issued on a 
multiple of 17.7. 

The nearest comparison is 
the USM-quotcd SAC Inter- 
national which differs from 
TPS in that it employs its 
own highly qualified staff to 
work on design contracts for 
big companies, whereas TPS 
will find the staff. SAC has an 
August year-end. and is on a 
prospective multiple of about 
17. 

The proceeds of the issue 
will amouni to £2.76 million. 
Of this. Mr Avery will receive 
£1.4 million for the shares he 
is selling, amounting to just 
over 20 per cent of the 
company, leaving him with a 
stake valued at a further £2 
million. 

Most of the rest will re- 
deem the preference shares 


issued at the time of the 
managemenem buyout leav- 
ing £60.UUU to add to working 
capital. 

Wellcome 

Welicome's interim results — 
the first since it joined the 
stock market in February — 
may not have satisfied the 
punters who chased ihe 
shares as high as 238p in 
initial trading. But i\iey were 
good enough for most inves- 
tors for the shares to rise 2p to 
290p yesterday. 

Reported profits were 
down from from £7 1 million 
to £64.2 million before tax. 
but that fall was due to 
exchange rale movements. 
There was an underlying 
increase of 26 per ccni on 
sales which, adjusted for 
currency changes, rose by 16 
percent 

The implied improvement 
in margins was achieved 
despite higher research and 
development spending, nota- 
bly on clinical trial:, for the 
Aids compound. Phase two 
trials are now underway in 
America, where 250 patients 
will use the drug for six 
months. 

Sales of both Zovirax - the 
herpes treatment — and ol 
Tracrium. a muscle relaxant, 
were well up. especially in 
America. Wellcome hopes to 
gain approval for extending 
the application of Zovirax to 
shingles, a much larger mar- 
ket than herpes. 

At home, sales grew by 
only 4 percent and profits fell 
from £30.9 million to £28.6 
million. The main disap- 
pointment. however, was at 
Coopers Animal Health, the 
joint venture with ICI estab- 
lished in October 1984. which 
accounts for a fifth of group 
turnover. 

Coopers lost about £1 mil- 
lion in the first half, before 
start-up costs of £400.000. 
The outlook for improved 
sales looks gloomy, following 
huge cuts in the New Zealand 
iamb population. 

Assuming earnings for the 
full year are unchanged at 
7.5p. the shares are trading on 
a premium multiple of 25. 
The price contains possibly 
as much as 30p for the 
treatment of Aids, which 
must be excessive given that 
the drug is unlikely to be 
commercially available for 
some years, assuming it 
passes the Trials. 


STOCK MARKET REPORT 


Rally fails to stop indexes 
closing 20 points lower 


The stock market's confi- 
dence was severely tested 
yesterday after a record fall on 
Wall Street and confirmation 
of a massive rights issue from 
the mighty Prudential. 

Jobbers slashed prices at the 
outset, but the move only 
anracted bargain-hunting, so 
that a sharp rally soon halved 
initial falls of more than 30 
points in the indices. 

During mid-session, prices 
tended to ease back again and 
by the close the FT 30-share 
index was down 20.9 points at 
1.374.0. The FT-SE 1 00 index 
dosed at 1.640.1, down 20.4 
points. 

Leading shares recorded 
losses on balance of between 
5p and 1 7p. but dealers were 
quick to point out that little 
selling was in evidence. . 

Government stocks slipped 
by half a point. Other sectors 
dipped and rallied behind the 
leaders, but still ended with 
falls in the majority. 

Reecham at 390p. Glaxo 
968p. Hawker 595p and 
Vickers 486p were among the 
worst hit. down by I Op to 1 7p. 
ICI ended 3p easier at 929p. 
having touched 9I4p in early 
trading. 

Prudential lost 28p to 864p 
on the £357 million cash-call, 
but there was some relief that 
the issue did not need to be 
underwritten due to the sub- 
stantial discount. 


Other life companies like 
Legal & General gave up I Op 
to 757p jn sympathy. Take- 
over situations continued to 
stimulate interest. RawtWree 
jumped 22p to 540p on the 
revival of the old report of a 
bid from Suchard of 
Switzerland. 

Brick bo use Dudley an- 
nounced a possible approach, 
boosting the shares I2p to 
126p. The predator was be- 
lieved lo be Glynwed. 4p lower 
at 3%p. 

APV improved by 8p to 
543p. awaiting developments

hoisted 24p to 6l7p in reac- 
tion to the company's strong

Issues success 

Three issues ofshares on the 
stock market were oversub- 
scribed yesterday. 

Applications were still being 
counted lust night but Tip Top 
Drugstores, brought lo market 
by Klein wort Benson, the 
merchant bank, was thought 
to be oversubscribed as much 
as 40 times. 

That implies that £200 mil- 
lion was chasing only £5 
million of shares. 

Both Combined Lease Fi- 
nance and Antler, the luggage 
and travel goods company 
which is joining the unlisted 
securities market, were over- 
subscribed. 


Larger stake 

1EP Securities, a company 
controlled by Mr Ron 
Brierley, the New Zealand 
businessman, has increased its 
stake in Ultramar, the oil 
company . from 6.5 percent to 
7.4 per cent 


Co-op Bank increases 
profits by £700,000 

By Richard Thomson, Banking Correspondent 


The Co-operative Bank, the 
banking am of the Co-opera- 
tive retail movement, yester- 
day reported a pretax profu of 
£12.9 million for the year to 
January II. a £700.000 in- 
crease compared with the year 
before- 

Bui a £25.000 loss on associ- 
ated companies 1 businesses 
left the banking group's profits 
virtually unchanged from the 
previous year. 

Mr Peter Paxton, who is 
retiring as chairman, said that 
increased profitability was 
mainly due to a strong perfor- 
mance in domestic banking 
The bank now has 4,000 
banking points or 
“Handybanks" for simple 
transactions in Co-operative 
stores. 

During the year many of 
these points were improved to 


offer a wider rangeol financial 
services, including personal 
loans, insurance, mortgages, 
and estate agency services. 

Mr Chris Ruck, chief gener- 
al manager, said that in the 
last year the Co-operative 
Bank bad josi its competitive 
advantage in areas such as free 
banking and cheaper personal 
loans. But customers would be 
attracted by a higher quality of 
service and convenience, he 
said. 

He added that the Co- 
operative Bank was aiming to 
build up its lending to small 
and medium-sued busiesses 
and the related services which 
small businesses needed.. 

Problems with bad loans 
had been sorted out and future 
provision would not have to 
be so high in future. 


New managing 
director 
at Tricentrol 

Mr Roger Smith, at prcxeni 
deputy chairman ot Fncenirol 
has been named managing 
director, a post previoudv 
held by the chairman. Mr 
James Longcrott 

Mr Longcroft. who lives in 
lax exile in Geneva, will 
remain executive chairman. 
Mr Smith wilt still therelore be 
reporting to Geneva, and in 
practice the change is unlikely 
to make much difference in 
practice to the running of the 
company. 

Mr Smith joined the com- 
pany when his group ol family 
businesses, including Lea 
Heating Merchants and Simp- 
son Garden Supplies, was 
taken over by Tncentrol. His 
career within the company has 
been: primarily on the com- 
mercial side. He became depu- 
ly chairman in 1983.

This the first report to be 
issued to shareholders Ibllow ing 
the recent issue ol our shares to 
the public in Februan.-. i would 
like to take the opportunity 
therefore ol welcoming our new 
shareholders. 

fi has previously been 
indicated that exchange rate 
movements have a major 
effect on our results due to 
the large proportion of 
profits earned outside the 
U.K.. particularly in North 
America. Exchange rates in 
the first hall' of this year 
changed considerably com- 
pared with the rates lor the 
first hall ol last year. The 
U.S. dollar exchange rate is 
particularly important and 
the average rate lor the first 
half of 1 his year was Sl.-Li 

compared with Sl.Ih for the first 
half ol'lasr yvar, a movement 
adverse to us of I9 I, «». The

By Richard Lander 

The pursuit of the Austra- 
lian oil, mining and industrial 
company Broken Hill Propri- 
etary has moved a stage 
forward with Mr Holmes a 
Court reinstating his fourth 
bid for the company and BHP 
rejecting it as inadequate and 
malicious. 

Mr Holmes A Court's Bell 
Resources group has reinstat- 
ed the partial bid. which was 
withdrawn last month, at the 
same level of Aus$7.70 per 
BHP share, including BHP*s 
20 cent final dividend, or 
AusS7.50 for shares that have 
gone ex-dividend. 

Bell is offering to take half 
of each shareholding, but it 
wants to buy only between 
18.4 and 20.7 per cent of 
BHP*s issued capital to add to 
the 1 8.5 per cent stake it owns. 

The offer price is barely 
above BLIP'S Aus$7.36 mar- 
ket price and Australian share 
brokers say Mr Holmes 4 
Court would have to raise the 
bid to perhaps Aus$8 to stand 
a chance of success. 

Mr Holmes a Court indicat- 
ed he could return at a higher 
price when be withdrew the 
offer 10 days ago, while Bell 
Resources has just made right 
issue which raised about 
Au5$630 million (£304 
million). 

In a statement to sharehold- 
ers. the BHP chairman. Sir 
James Balderstone. criticized 
the offer and gave a warning 
that it was designed to ensnare 



Holmes k Court: may 
have to raise offer 

shareholders stakes He said: 
“There are escape provisions 
which may well enable Beil in 
the end to walk away without 
taking shares for which accep- 
tances are lodged and paying 
for them." 

The iong-running saga of 
Mr Holmes k Court's chase of 
BHP. which started almost 
three years ago, is further 
complicated by the presence 
of two other groups whose 
intentions towards BHP are 
not yet fully clear. 

Mr John Elliott's Elders 
EXL brewing and agriculture 
conglomerate, which at 
present has a bid for Ailied- 
Lyons under review by the 
Monopolies and Mergers 
Commission, swooped earlier 
this month to pick up a 19 per 
cent stake in BHP, while the 
Adelaide Steamship group 
owns between 4 to 5 per cent 


£1 2m tag 
on Dalepak 
flotation 

By Clare Dobie 

Dalepak Foods, a York- 
shire-based producer of 
griDsteaks, is joining the stock 
market this month with a price 
tag of £12.9 million. It was 
started 10 years ago with 
capital of £75,000. 

The three founders are sell- 
ing some of their shares as 
part of the offer-for-saie. The 
chairman, Mr Jonathon 
Ropaer, is realizing £740,000, 
and two coUeagaes are raising 
£300,000 between them. After 
the offer-for-saie the directors 
and their families win own 56 
per cent of the company’s 
s ha res. 

Since 1976 Dalepak has 
grown quickly and now ac- 
counts for 31 per cent of the 
market for frozen meat prod- 
ucts. It supplies most of the 

In the year to April 30, the 
company doubled production 
capacity at its main factory to 
300 tonnes a week and It has 
plans to expand farther in the 
ready meals market after the 
recent lannch of its Budget 
Gourmet range. 

Profits have increased from 
£77,000 before tax in the year 
to April 30, 1981 loan estimat- 
ed £990400 in the year just 
ended. 

As part of the offer-Tor-sale 
Dalepak is raising £2JnriDiou 
after expenses of £600,000. 
This new money will reduce 
die gearing ratio from 120 per 
cent to 20 per cent. 

In total 4.7 ntiDran shares 
are on offer at 107p each.

Concern grows as 
America allows 
dollar’s free-fall 


The dollar’s slide has been a 
feet of life for most of the past 
12 months. Since the Septem- 
ber 22 meeting of tbe Group of 
Five at the Plaza Hotel in New 
York, the dollar , has been 
pushed ever lower,' with little 
concern about the pace of Its 
fell. 

Now, -such concent is 
emerging. The Japanese were 
the fust to be affected as the 
yen’s rise against the dollar, 
first to an uncomfortable 200 
against tbe dollar, then to a 
painful 180, and finally to an 
unbearable 166 , bit vulnerable 
sections of industry. 

This week, for the first time 
since the Plaza accord, the 
Germans, too, appear to have 
decided that enough is 
enough The first Bundesbank 
intervention in support of the 
tumbling dollar 'appeared on 
Monday. 

Yesterday, Herr Karl Otto 
Fohl, the Bundesbank presi- 
dent, said that tbe dollar’s fell 
bad goittfer enough, and that 
a period of consolidation was 
now required. 

Tbe one thing that has been 
missing, so fer at least, is any 
indication from the US Ad- 
ministration that something 
should be done to call a halt to 
the dollar’s felL 

On Wednesday. Mr James 


By David Smith, Economics Editor 


Baker, the US Treasury Secre* 
tary, said that the dollar's fell 
had been orderly and empha- 
sized that the Administration 
had no target for the doBar. He 
also' said teat a further reduc- 
tion in interest raxes would be 
appropriate, hardly tee thing 
for a finance minister con- 
cerned about his currency's 
value to volunteer. 

The big difficulty about the 
dollar at present is that the 
effects of its fell, are taking 
time to come through. This is 
the J-curve effect. 

In the case of tire US, the 
initial effect of the dollar's 
weakening is to produce a 
deterioration in the trade 
balance. 

Figures released on 
Wednesday showed a $14.52 
billion trade deficit in March, 
against $1 1.37 billion in Feb- 
ruary, mainly because of a rise 
in tee import bill because of 
the lower dollar. 

Japan and Germany, mean- 
while, are running large trade 
surpluses. Japan's 1985/86 
trade surplus, of $61.64 bil- 
lion, comfortably surpassed 
the previous record. 

Germany, according to tbe 
forecast from the five leading 
research institutes in the Fed- 
eral Republic, published this 
week, will run a trade surplus 
of DM100 billion (£29.9 bil- 


lion) this year, easily tbe 
highest ever. 

Just as the United States is 
experiencing the J-curve, 
where tee initial effect of a 
currency decline boosts the 
cost of imports and only 
works through later to an 
increase in tee volume of 
exports, so Japan and Germa- 
ny are experiencing the invert- 
ed J-curve. 

There is thus a danger of a 
seif-feeding situation develop- 
ing. whereby every fell in the 
dollar leads to an apparent 
deterioration in America's 
trading position, the response 
to which is a policy of trying to 

push the dollar down further. 

Tbe J-curve, and the inverse 
of it, appear to be fully 
recognized in Germany and 
Japan. But the US Adminis- 
tration looks to be quite happy 
to ignore it and to preside 
gleefully over the dollar’s 
slide. 

The foreign exchange mar- 
kets have a natural tendency 
to overshoot — to push a 
currency beyond its equilibri- 
um level and then to pull it 
back. 

In the new era of semi- 
managed exchange rates, there 
is an opportunity to prevent 
this from happening. But it is 
dearly not possible without 
the fill] support of tbe United 
States.

The diamond market has turned the comer 

‘the strength and resilience of the centralised selling system is underlined. 



De Beers 

Extracts from 
Julian Ogilvie Thompson’s 
Statement for 1985 


1985 marked the turning point in the 
market for rough diamonds and underlined 
the strength and resilience of De Beers’ 
centralised selling system. This was 
particularly gratifying in view of the problems 
experienced in other commodity s tabilisation • 
schemes. World retail sales of diamond 
jewellery attained yet another record, 
exceeding the 1984 figure by some three per 
cent. Geographically sales were more evenly 
spread, the increase in the United States 
being less spectacular and in the other 
industrialised countries more pronounced, 
than in 1984. 

Cutting centre stocks down 
, The CSO continued its policy of only 
offering for sale those goods for which there 
was immediate demand. Stocks in the cutting 
centres have been brought down at last to 
rearonabb operating levels, and 
manufacturers have been able to trade 
profitably in meeting the demandgenerated 
by the record retail jewellery sales. It follows 
that after this protracted and difficult period 
of destockiiig, the pipeline between the CSO 
and the ultimate consumer has contracted to 
the point where CSO sales should once again 


Looking further ahead, the prospect is that. ; ‘ 
the recent shaipfell in the oil price should 
bring about Iowa: inflation and higher growth, 
in the industrialised countries, and hence 
higher sales of diamond jeweflery :

Certainly the past year has seen a 
progressive broadening of demand for rough 
into sizes and qualities that have not been 
offered by the CSO in recent years, with the 
result that CSO sales in the second half of the 
year were the highest since 1980. These 
trends have continued inro the cmrent year 
with demand for rough gem continuing at a 
high level during die first three sights and on 
8th April the CSO announced an overall 
increase of 7 5 per certt in the price of rough 
gem diamonds with effect from, the fourth 
sight inMay 

Net current assets improved by R204 
million, while long and medium-term 
borrowings and preference shares in issue by 
subsidiaries together fell by R12 million, 
giving an overall improvement in funding of 
R2 16 million. Had the conversion rate used 
in 1985 applied in 1984 as well, the . 
improvement would have amounted to R532 
million. Our borrowings are low in relation 
both to our overall facilities and to our total 
assets.. 

The value of inve stmen ts and long-term 
loans outride thediamond industry increased 
by R2, 193 million to R5,880 mill ion, or 
1 .634 cents per share, and yielded income of 
R215 million compared with R183 million 
the previous yean 

Indu strial Division .. 

Our Industrial Division had another 
satisfactory year, with profits in Dollar lei ms 
being marginally ahead of the 1984figuie 
though total sales fell just short of it. Carat, 
turnover in natural diamond increased, but 
the reduction in sales value - caused largely by - 
the slump in exploration drilling for minerals 
and oil -and the lower synthetic grit sales 
*ere not quite offset by noticeably improved 
sales of the newer polycrystalline dtoond__ .. 
and other hard abrasive products. 

New and improved techniques developed 
at the Diamond ReseaichUboimory 
successfully introduced at the three synthetic 
manufacturing plants and resulted in a further 
Auction in direct costs, notwithstanding • 


us to 


offer a more comprehensive range of diamond 
and cubic boron nitride composites than any 
other manufacturer; and several interesting 
opportunities lie ahead. Research into new 
uses for natural diamond grit has been 
especially active in the light of the increased 
quantities that will be available now that the 
Aigyle mine, a major producer ofboart and 
drilling stones, is coming into full production. 

Production from the De Beers mines and 
Debswana, in which De Beers has an equal 
partnership with the Government of 
Botswana, fell slightly by 85,000 carats to 
23,251,000 carats. 

The report of a commission, appointed in 
1982 to inquire into alleged irregularities and 
misapplication of property in representative 
authorities and the central authority of South 
AXfest Africa/Namibia, known as the Thirion 
Commission, was published on 7th March 
1986, by the Transitional Government of 
National Unity in Windhoek. Among the 
Commissioner’s findings CDM, without 
having given evidence or been called upon to 
do so, is said to have breached the provisions 
of its mining title, namely the Halbscheid 
Agreementj which requires that mining 
should be. carried on -4 'satisfactorily to the 
Administration and not with a view to 


exhausting the superficial and more valuable 
deposits to the detriment of the low grade 
deposits 71 . At no stage has there been any 
suggestion from the Administration that 
CDM was not carrying on mining 
satisfactorily and CDM is confident that it has 
not breached any of its obligations and that its 
mining practices have not been detrimental 
to the State. On the contrary, by the 
introduction of innovative and cost-effective 
techniques CDM has rendered hitherto 
unpayable ground payable, and thus 
progressively extended the life of the mine. 

On current projections, only about two per 
cent of the estimated original carat inventory 
of the mining area will be left behind at the 
end of the life of the mine. Of this, about half 
is in ground which is inaccessible using 
cunent mining techniques. In the meantime, 
prospecting continues in the hope of 
identifying new reserves. Naturally within 
the limits of production technology, CDM 
has always followed a policy of responding to 
market conditions, so that when demand is 
high more diamonds are produced and when 
the market is in recession, as it has been over 
the last five years, the rate of production is 
lowered.. -Indeed, since 1981 , a number of 
production facilities at CDM have remained

temporarily closed without affecting CDM’s 
share of sales. These facts are hardly 
compatible with a policy of excessive 
depletion of CDM’s reserves. As in the past, 
CDM fully intends to continue operating 
within its rights and obligations, in 
consultation with the authorities and in 
accordance with the law. 

Unified wage structure 

Industrial relations on our various 
operations have been satisfactory; due in part 
at least to the Company’s long-standing 
adherence to a unified wage structure and 
continuing implementation of merit-based 
manning policies, supported by extensive 
training and development programmes for 
employees at all levels. The removal of 
statutory job reservation in the mining 
industry in South Africa is now a matter of 
great urgency, and intensive discussions 
between the industry, the unions and the . 
Government are at last taking place. It is 
crucial that the outcome should be fair and 
should provide equal opportunity to all. 

Committed to change 
• South Africa has been through a 
particularly difficult year. The need to abolish 
apartheid in all its forms and create a socio- 
political dispensation that gives fair and equal 
opportunity to all is now more widely 
recognised than ever before. Your Company 
has long been in the forefront of those 
committed to such changes- and it is 
encouraging that the Government has 
announced many substantial reforms. Several 
have been implemented and the remainder 
are expected to receive legislative approval 
during the present session; it is hoped that 
further initiatives will soon follow. We shall 
continue to do all we can to accelerate the 
process of evolutionary change. 

Our Deputy Chairman, Mr N icholas 
Oppenheimei; has succeeded Sir Philip 
Oppenheimer as Chairman of the CSO. Sir 
Philip filled that role with great distinction for 
30 years and De Beers and, indeed, the whole 
diamond industry is deeply indebted to him. 
Fortunately, we shall still benefit from Sir 
Philip’s experience and wisdom for he will 
continue to be a member of our hoard arid to 
play a leading role in certain key aspects of the 
CSO’s activities. 

Over the past year I have been able to visit 
each of our main operating centres and have 
been impressed everywhere by the loyalty, 
enthusiasm and devotion of De Beers 7 
employees. Their efforts over this decade in 
containing costs and yet maintaining 
productivity have been of great importance in 
helping us to come through a period that has 
been the most difficult in De Beers’ history 
since the 1930s. The board and I are 
extremely graceful to all our people for these 
achievements. 


The full Chairman’s Statement is 
contained in the Annual Report of the 
Company for the year ended 3 1st December 
1985 which was posted to registered 
Shareholders on 1st May 1986.

Million pound bright spark contest 


BUS] 


USi 



A competition with £1.25 million In 
awards to stimulate more research and 
development in small firms and start-up 
companies was launched this week by the 
Department of Trade and industry. 

The scheme — the Small Firms Merit 
Award for Research and Technology 
(Smart) — Is looking for innovative ideas 
in two particular areas of technology, 
instrumentation and biotechnology. Indi- 
viduals and UK firms with np to 200 
employees are eligible. The competition 
will be of particular interest to potential 


entrepreneurs in academic institutions 
and big companies who want to start their 
own companies to develop bright ideas 
they are unable to exploit at the moment 

Smart has two phases. There will be 20 
awards of up to £37.500 for the first year, 
followed by grants of 50 per cent in the 
second year and 25 per cent in subse- 
quent years depending on the technical 
progress made by the applicant 

Geoffrey Pattie. minister for informa- 
tion technology, said: “Highly innovative 


Ideas are, by their very nature, usually 
risky and innovators can find it difficult 
to raise the modest amounts of capital 
needed to get going.** The competition is 
part of the department's contribution to 
Industry Year but may be extended in 
further years to other technical fields if 
successfiiL

Live wire: Nicholas Tusch with his microprocessor-based inspector device which detects the degree of corrosion hi steel 


By Teresa Poole 

For the last year the Royal Dairy at 
Windsor Castle has been undergoing a 
painstakingly slow process of restora- 
tion. Each tile, brick, and window pane 
has been removed, made structurally 
sound and waterproof, then reassembled 
in a repeat performance of the original 
building process. 

The company at work. Colebrand. has 
analysed the old building materials and 
made detailed studies of the history of 
the building. According to the managing 
director. Nicholas Tusch. “The difficulty 
is not in making it look new. but on 
conserving what is there.’* 

The dairy is one of several heritage 
buildings Colebrand has helped restore 
in its 15 years as a protective coatings 
and specialist materials manufacturer. 


[ BRIEFING S j 


■ Sixty small businesses set up by 
under-25s from Merseyside will be 
represented at a new trade fair to be 
held in Liverpool to interest commercial 
buyers and the public in the products 
and services offered by the young 
entrepreneurs. The fair, called Lin Off. 
will be held at the Britannia Adelphi Hotel, 
over three days Starting on June 17, 
coordinated by the Toxteth-based Into 
Business Project, a non-profit-making 
body which aims to channel youngsters 
with no jobs into starting their own 
businesses. 

Sectors covered will include precision 
engineering. infra-red photography, 
specialist pet supplies, interior 
landscaping, construction trades and 
furniture-making. 


Man of steel 
with a liking 
for problems 


Audley End House in Essex, the statues 
of Torosay Castle in Scotland. 
Framlingham Castle. Harrow School 
Chapel and the Tower of London have 
all benefited from the company’s 
expertise. 

Set up in 1971 by Mr Tusch. an 
Austrian chemical engineer who came to 
Britain in 1962 because he wanted to 
learn English, the original idea was to be 
a building-materials research organiza- 
tion. It soon became obvious that

■ A damning criticism of the 
Government s small-business policy was 
made this week by the Association of 
Independent Businesses in its 1986-7 
programme. AIB says that 106 
measures introduced by the 
Conservatives have had little impact 
on the economic climate for small firms 
and that the sector has continued its 
long-term trend of decline beyond 
acceptability. The associations calls 
on the Government to stop concentrating 
on new enterprise formations at the 
expense of established small 
businesses.and makes several 
proposals, including a wage subsidy for 
employers who take on long-term 
unemployed. 


Colebrand would not survive unless it 
also took on the development of its 
products and expanded into manufactur- 
ing. The company turned to the develop- 
ment of coatings to protect steel and 
concrete on land. 

The research roots of the company are 
still apparent; its research and develop- 
ment expenditure is higher than that of 
most small companies. Last year 
Colebrand spent £750,000 on research, 
compared with turnover of about £4.5 
million. Though conservation accounts 
for about a fifth of turnover, it is the big 
steel-protection contracts that bring in 
most of the work. Projects have included 
the steel coating on the M5 motorway, 
steel girders which hold up the motorway 
at Spaghetti Junction and last year the 
surface preparation and painting of the 
underwater piling in New York harbour.

Hong Kong (Reuter) - A 
public offering of snares in 
Cathay Pacific, Hong Kong's 
leading airline, was more than 
55 times oversubscribed, its 
financial advisers said today. 

Baring Brothers said inves- 
tors had handed over more 
than HKS51 billion (£4.2 bil- 
lion) in (he hope of getting 
shares. Allocations are expect- 
ed to be announced next week. 
Trading will begin on May 15. 

“It’s much more money 
than we had expected”, a 
Baring Brothers official Mr 
Paul Hitchcock, said after 
more than 230,000 applica- 
tions had been processed. The 
offer dosed on Tuesday. 

Cathay had offered 226 
million shares, or 8.5 per cent 
of its stock, at HKS3.88. 

Another 1 72 million shares 
were reserved for airline em- 
ployees and institutional in- 
vestors and the offer was 31 
times oversubscribed if those 
are counted. 

The news pushed stock 
prices higher yesterday, with 
the market index rising more 
than 11 points to equal the 
record. 1,848.65 set on 
Monday. 


Beer sales overall are still in 
the doldrums but lager is a 
growing market, with premi- 
um lagers showing by tor the 
biggest sales increases — 15 per 
cent or more. 

The emergence of the stron- 
ger and more expensive lagers 
as the biggest growth sector is 
most marked m the South of 
England, according to Mr 
Stephen Digby, managing di- 
rector of Harp Lager. 

Lager now accounts for 41 
per cent of sales in the beer 
market, while premium lagers 
make up 19 per cent of all 
lager sales. But in the South 
premium lager accounts for at 
least 25 per cent of lager sales 
and possibly nearer 30 per 
cent, Mr Digby said. 

There is stiff competition 
among the premium lagers. 
Harp has reformulated its 
Kronen bo urg brand and after 
a six months sales increase of 
about 40 per cent is claiming 
to be market leader in draught 
premium lager. 

But Bass has been expand- 
ing sales of its Tennents brand 


in this sector — its Carting is 
overall lager market leader — 
while other firmly established 
premium lagers include 
Carlsberg's Special Brew, Stel- 
la Artois and Lowed bra u. 

Harp Special was re- 
launched last autumn as Harp 
Extra, a premium lager, and a 
sales increase of 70 per cent in 
the first year is hoped for. 

Harp as an overall brand 
lost its way between 1977 and 
1983 and its market share 
dropped from 10 to about 7 
percent . 

Since then Harp Lager has 
restructured its operations, 
and the marketing company, 
which is 75 per cent owned by 
Guinness and 25 per cent by 
Greene King, the regional 
brewer, plans to spend £4 
million on promotion this 
year. 

Mr Digby said; “The re- 
structuring of the Harp opera- 
tion means thereis still a bit of 
volume shakeout still to come 
for the standard lager but we 
are now looking overall to an 
increase in maiket share".

ment service company yester- 
day took control of Associated 
Heat Services, the beating 
plant operator set up by the 
National Coal Board in 1966, 
90 minutes after launching a 
bid valuing the company at 
£39.2 million. 

After announcing the agreed 
490p per share cash offer, 
Compagnie Generate de 
Chaune immediately went 
into the market and bought 
enough shares to take its stake 
from 36 per cent to just over 
50 per cent and the bid was 
declared unconditional

week that it was in negotia- 
tions about a takeover and the 
shares bad since jumped from 
333p to 450p. Yesterday they 
gained 38p to 488p. 

CGC was a founder share- 
holder of AHS, with the NCB 
and Ocean Transport & Trad- 
ing, and has been the 
company's largest shareholder 
since the stock market flota- 
tion in 1982 when the NCB 
sold its stake.

fired heating plants and boil- 


ers for industrial commercial 
and government customers.

million in the six months to

owned subsidiary of of 
Compagnie Generate des 
Eaux whose main businesses

19% rise 
in profit 
claimed 
by Pegler 

By Alison Eadie 

Pegler-Hattersley, which is 
fighting a £187 million bid 
from FH Tomkins, yesterday 
estimated its pretax profits in 
the year to March 29 at £21.6 
million, a rise of 19.3 per cem. 

The higher-than-expected 
figure brought a 30p jump in 
Pegler’s share price to 624p. 

Trading profits are estimat- 
ed to have risen from £10.3 
million to £16.2 million, de- 
spite the £1.7 million fall in 
the contribution from Pegler’s 
South African associate. The 
best performance in the group 
came from building products. 

Pegler s defence document 
attacked the Tomkins bid as 
‘•inadequate, inequitable, il- 
logical and devoid of industri- 
al merit*. 

It pointed out that Pegler 
shareholders would contribute 
75 per cent of combined 
pretax profits for the year just 
ended. 76 percent of earnings, 
and 80 per cent of net assets, 
but would receive only 59 per 
cent of the ordinary shares in 
return. 

It also claimed that full 
acceptance of the ordinary 
share offer would lead to an 80 
per cent reduction in income. 

With FH Tomkins' share 
price at 328p yesterday, the 
all-share offer is worth 609p 
for every Pegler share. 

The cash offer is 529.3p. 
Pegler said that the cash offer 
represented only 11.7 times 
1985-6 earnings, a substantial 
discount to the sector. 

The defence document also 
took issue with Tomkins' 
assertion that it had proven 
managmeut expertise. It said 
the chief executive, Mr Greg 
Hutchings, had held his post 
for little over two years and 
two of the other four (Erectors 
were even more recent. 


Rentco Nationwide: 
MrJohn Donnelly has become 
managing director and Mr 
Gnnvant (Gary) Vatd finance 
director. Mr Vaid has also 
been appointed finance direc- 
tor of Crane Fruehauf Finance 
and Mr John Kentenius has 
been made a director. 

Watraoughs (Holdings): Mr 
Jeffrey Baldry has become 
production director of Bridge 
Graphics. Mr Peter Middle- 
ton and Mr John Stevenson 
join the board of D H Greaves 
as process director and pro- 
duction director respectively. 
Mrs Anne Kelly has been 
appointed marketing director 
of Joweiis.

feet that Mrs Thatcher, in her 
championing of the small 
business man should be more 
attuned to. ■ 

The business on the margin 
of viability is that which 
generates sufficient capacity 
(added value) to satisfy 
employees' wage expectations; 
provides its owner with the 
minimum return compatible 
with the effort and risk implies 
it in running it; services its

Nothing is left for taxation, 
and any such impost serves to 
render its operations even 
more precarious. This is no 
doubt why we find that many 
marginal enterprises are kept 
afloat by a subsidy just suffi- 
cient to fund their employ-

two children would not have 
been concerned with employ- 
ment taxes at all until the 
employee’s pay rose to more 
than the national average; and 
even then the rate was only 9p 
in the pound. 

The standard rate of income 
tax then (33p in the pound) 
became effective only when 
wages reached 1.8 times the 
national average (equivalent 
to approximately £340 per 
week today). 

Britain has the highest start- 
ing rate of income tax in the 
world with the exception of 
Australia; and at the same 
time these taxes become pay- 
able at a wage level which is 20 1 
per cent below the official ! 
poverty line - very much 
lower than the starting point 
for employment taxes in most 
other advanced industrial 
countries. 

So far as the Chancellor's 
stated overriding aim of fiscal 
neutrality is concerned, be can 
do no better than read the 
report of the House of Com- 
mons Select Committee on

The essence of its recom- 
mendations could be cited as i 
the cornerstone of any pro- 
gramme of tax reform, any- 
where, since it highlights the 
need to protect margin al busi- 
nesses and to encourage the 
emergence of new ones which, 
but tor the tax system* would 
be economically viable. 

Such reform must recognize 
that all employment taxes are 
ultimately borne by the em- 
ployer, whatever the jtiusian 
of their incidence, and differ- 
ential added value created by 
that employment must be 
taken into account if Adam 
Smith's principle of taxable 
capacity is to be accorded due 
recognition today.

Scania h ave never been tempted to compete on 

cost alone. 

Trying to equal some of today's truck prices would 
mean sacrificing too many of our principles and 
too much of your cost-efficiency. 
Instead of investing over 7% of sales turnover in 
research and development we might have to cut 
a few comers. Which could mean risking our 
hard-won reputation for absolute reliability and for 

fuel economy. 

Instead of manufacturing our own engines, 
gearboxes, axles and cabs, we might have to 
make do with boiling together bits and pieces 
made by someone less dedicated to precision. 


And msteadof maintaining 24-hour international 
Lifeline cover, we'd be forced to trim our support 
services to more ordinary levels. 

True, we'd be able to offer you a cheaper truck. But 
it would probably cost you more to run. It certainly 
wouldn't last as long. And when the time comes to 
sell, the return on your initial investment wouldn't . 
be so healthy. 

Scania promise you years of low-cost operation. 
And that more than equals a short-term saving in 
the bargain basement

I t ® pleasing to report that by 1985 our share of 
the traditional ordinary business and seif- 
emptoyed market in the UK had grown by almost 

50% since 1982 . , 

Our new UK annual premiums increased by 
10% to £90 million while single premiums reached 
£325 million — up by a third on !984. 

Our endowment policies demonstrated their 
competitiveness against other forms of savings, 

even without the advantage of tax relief. 

Mortgage-related business rallied well 

towards the end of 1985 and has started 1986 very 

^^^eli-empioyed pensions business doubled

The high level of new business is all .the more

are among, the highest in the market, very much 
supporting the Insurance Ombudsman's recommen- 
dation in his 1985 Report that “all surrender value 
calculations should be towards the high end of the 
scale.;'. 

Underlying such strength and confidence is an 
investment philosophy and strategy which is mark- 
edly different from that of our competitors. With 
large proportions of our funds invested over many 
years in ordinary shares and property, we are able 
to earn consistently higher returns than are avail- 
able to those who have concentrated on fixed inter- 
est securities. 

During 1985 the Life Society in the UK 
invested £494 million of which three-quarters went 
into shares and real estate. The £185 million 
invested in property in 1985 secured a starting yield 
of over 7%. 

We are committed to increasing market activity 
in the years ahead, and our efforts, assisted by the

THE TIMES FRIDAY MAY 2 1986 


Motoring by Clifford Webb 


Political revolution in q 


The north German city of 
Bremen is best known for its 
shipbuilding and general sea- 
faring activities but it is as a 
manufacturer of cars that it is 
playing an increasingly impor- 
tant role in the future of 
Daimler Benz and Mercedes 
Benz UK in particular. 

The Conservative south 
German group's decision in 
1978 to build a car factory in 
Socialist-dominated Bremen 
was quite a shock. Indeed the 
early years were notable for 
the friction generated rather 
than the cars produced. But it 
has to be remembered that 
both sides were learning about 
each other and none more so 
than the Stuttgart company, 
which had never built a car 
outside its traditional Swabian 
base and was worried about 
the possible effect on hs 
cherished image as a producer 
of quality cars. 

Now the learning curve is 
over and die results are begin- 
ning to show in strength. Since 
1978 the labour force at the 
Bremen factory has more than 
doubled to over 1 1,000. This 
year it will produce 160,000 
cars, rising to 180.000 next 
year. The effect on overall 
Mercedes output has been 
quite dramatic for a company 
which always proclaimed the 
necessity for slow, reliable 
growth. Annual car produc- 
tion shot up from 470,000 in 
1 984 to 540.000 last year and a 
forecast 580,000 this year. 
Almost all the growth came 
from Bremen. 

The great majority of Bre- 
men cars are the small (for a 
Mercedes) 190 model. British 
motorists bought 18.000 last 
year, and increase of 25 per 
cent on the year and will 
probably buy 19,000 this 
year.- more than one in three 
R190s, indicating clearfy the 
importance of Bremen to the 
fortunes of Mercedes UK. 

But Bremen is also the 
home of Mercedes estate cars. 
It is turning out about 30.000a 
year ami recently reorganized 
its assembly lines to produce 
the new look T-series estates 
which are just reaching British 
showrooms. They are loaded 
with new technology, much of 
it underlining the company's 
tremendous attention to de- 
tail. 

For example, it is not 
necessary to slam the rear 
door. You simply lower it and 
an electric motor takes over 
for the final couple of indies. 
Technology gone mad? Not a 
bit of it. The rear door on any 
estate is the weakest point on 
the car causing structural and 
noise problems which increase 


Tv”. 









Made in Bremen: The new Mercedes T-series estates 


due to wear and tear on the 
door lock, seals and some- 
times even distortion of the 
door itselfl 

Four versions are being 
imported. The base model is 
the 200T costing £13,900, 
230TE £16,150, the 300TE 
£20.500 and the 250TD (die- 
sel) £16,300. That is an aver- 
age 15 per cent more than the 
old models but it must be 
remembered that they were 
omitted from the last 5 per 
cent price increase in March. 
There is also more sophisticat- 
ed equipment in the oew 
model and finally the German 
Marie grows stronger almost 
daily against the pound. 

New Ford 
estate 

Another new estate car on 
sale from this week is the Ford 
Siena Ghia 4x4 and it too 
commands a hefty price 
£13,643. You can add a fur- 
ther £869 for the optional ABS 
anti-lode brakes and £668 for 
air conditioning, flowered by 
the now rather long in the 
tooth but still robust 2.8 litre 
V6 this is a rocket of an estate 
car with a maximum speed of 
124 mph and a 0-60 mph time 
of 9.2 seconds. 

Ford is marketing it with a 
distinct bent towards foe 
hunting, shooting and fishing 
fraternity where its good looks 


and four wheel drive should 
certainly score some Brownie 
points. 

A brief trial run on normal 
roads and private forest tracks 
was sufficient to show that foe 
newcomer is no mean per- 
former. As such it should suit 
foe young company executive 
who wants an upmarket estate 
for weekend activities and 
family duties but still yearns 
for a more exdting “set of 
wheels” as personal transport. 

Three 

cylinders 

At a shade under lOfA feet 
long, the Daihatsu Domino is 
one of the smallest cars on foe 
road. Indeed its abruptly cut- 
off rear gives it foe appearance 
of being even smaller and this 
provoked some ribald com- 
ments from a couple of col- 
leagues whose Ford Escort 
dwarfed foe little Japanese 
mini. 

But their amusement 
turned to outright amazement 
when foe Domino easily out- 
paced them at the next traffic 
lights Grand Prix. Small it 
may be but this newcomer to 
the Daihatsu range is a real 
flyer thanks to its lightweight 
and astonishingly powerful 
850cc three cylinder engine. 

It simply loves to rev,- 
responding immediately and 
enthusiastically to even a 


tycars 

whiff of throttle. In many 
ways it reminds me of an 
Italian engine and has the 
same rorty exhaust note. 

Of course with such a short 
wheelbase only 7.4 feet long it 
is a foisty little beast on wet 
roads, spinning its front driv- 
ing wheels like a good big Tin 
and flicking its tail out when 
rally provoked. But given a 
modicum of care in bad 
conditions it is a reasonably 
well mannered, safe transport 
for four people provided they 
keep their luggage to the barest 
minimum. 

The brakes are among the 
best on any small car. They 
respond instantly and progres- 
sively to light foot measure in 
a most reassuring way. 

Despite its nippiness the 
Domino is very frugal, return- 
ing well over 50 mpg through- 
out foe test period. 

The high roof line together j 
with four doors and a rear 1 
hatch make access to the rear i 

Vital statistics

Performance: 0-60 mph 14.7

seats and luggage compart- 
ment surprisingly convenient 
for such a small car. Most 
Dominos will, I suspect, be 
bought as second car run- 
abouts or cheap transport to 
and from work. 

For either purpose they are 
very practical With foe rear 
seats folded forward they will 
swallow the contents of the 
biggest supermarket trolley. 

But at £3.995 the Domino is 
by no means foe cheapest of 
the minis. The Austin Mini 
City costs nearly £400 less. 
The students' favourite, the 
Citroen 2 CV, is more than 
£1,000 cheaper but painfully 
slow. The spritely Hat Panda 
must come into the reckoning 
at £3,397 while foe smaller 
Fiat 1 26 is still foe cheapest of 
all at £2,431.

Law Report May 2 1986 House of Lords 


Appeals on rates relief refusal 


Norwich City Council y Inves- 
tors in Industry Commercial 
Properties Ltd 

Before Lord Keith of Kinfcel. 
Lord Brandon of Oakbrook, 
Lord Templeman. Lord Grif- 
fiths and Lord Oliver of 
I A yl merlon 
! [Speeches sold May 1J 

An appeal lay to the crown 
court irom the dismissal by a 
rating authority of an applica- 
tion under paragraph 3A of 
Schedule 1 to the General Rate 
Act 1967 (introduced by section 
15(5) of the Local Government 
I Act 1974) for the reduction or 
i remission of rates payable in 
I respect of unoccupied property 
on the ground of hardship. 

I The House of Lords dis- 
missed an appeal by Norwich 
| City Council from the Court of 


hereditament ... if they con- 
sider that the payment would 
cause hardship to the person 
liable for those rates.” 

Mr Raymond Sears. QC and 
Mr Mark Lowe for the council: 
Mr William Glover, QC and Mr 
Matthew Horton for the com- 
pany. 

LORD OLIVER said that 
section 17 of the 1967 An 
together with Schedule 1 en- 
abled a rating authority to 
charge rates on unoccupied 


property. 
It had b 


! Appeal (Sir John Donaldson. 
Master oft 


ftbe Rolls. Lord Justice 
Parker and Lord Justice 
Balcombe) {The Times August 
5. 1985: [I9S6] QB 17) dismiss- 
ing the council's appeal from Mr 
Justice Hodgson on May 16, 
1984, who ordered that the 


decision of Judge May Ian. QC, 
in Norwich Crown Court on 


November 15. 1982, that that 
1 court had no jurisdiction to 
entertain the appeal of a com- 
pany. Investors in Industry 
Commercial Properties Ltd. un- 
der section 7 of the 1967 Act be 
set aside. 

Section 7 of the 1967 Act 
provides: "(l)-.. any person 

who (cl is aggrieved by any 

neglect, act or thing done or 
omitted by the rating authority, 
may appeal [to the crown 
court] . . .** 

Section 53 provides: “A rating 
authority shall have power to 
reduce or remit the payment of 
(any rate on account of the 
poverty of any person liable to 
pay it-" 

Paragraph 3A of Schedule 1 
provides: "Without prejudice to 
I section 53 of this Acl a rating 
! authority shall have power to 
reduce or remit the payment of 
any rates payable is respect of a 


been realized that there 
might be circumstances m 
which liability to pay rates on an 
unoccupied property would cre- 
ate hardship for the owner, and 
accordingly section 15(5) of the 
1974 Act had introduced para- 
graph 3A into Schedule 1. 

The similarity between the 
provisions of paragraph 3A and 
those of section 53 needed no 
underlining, and the question 
on the appeal was equally 
applicable to the exercise or 
non-exercise of the power in 
section 53. and. indeed, to any 
Other discretionary power for 
which no other method of 
appeal was specifically provided 
in the Act. 

The point was, therefore, of 
considerable importance to rat- 
ing authorities. 

The appellant company 
owned an office block in Nor- 
wich completed in 1976 and 
since completion either wholly 
or partially unoccupied. 

A resolution under section 1 7 
applying Schedule 1 to its area 
had been passed by the council 
in 1970. The company bad thus 
become liable for rates on the 
unoccupied p rope rt y, which 
were substantial, the total 
amount involved being some 
£274.000. 

The point raised was a short 
point of construction of section 
7(lXc). On the free of it, the 
words of section 7(lXc) were in 
the widest terms and permitted 
an appeal to the crown court in 
respect of any matter at all that 


the rating authority, as a rating 
authority, had done or omitted 
lo do. 

The question was simply 
whether, in the context of the 
Act as a whole, or from other 
indicia, including the history of 
the legislation consolidated by 
the 1967 Act. a limitation bad to 
be put on the width of the words 
so as to exclude an appeal 
against the exercise or non-; 
exercise by the rating authority 
of discretionary powers con- 
ferred on it in the administra- 
tion of the rating system. 

It was common ground that 
the 1967 Act was a consolidating 
Act not intended to create fresh 
rights of appeal not already 
existing under the prior legisla- 
tion. 

In common with all three 
members of the Court of Ap- 
peal, his Lordship took the view 
that the legislative history in- 
dicated throughout an intention 
to confer on the inhabitants of 
the area the widest rights of 
appeal in rating matters. 

In a system built up. as our 
rating system had been, by 
legislation passed piecemeal 
over three centuries, his Lord- 
ship found nothing surprising in 
the fret that there was a degree 
of overlap in provisions of 
different statutes. 

He was unimpressed by the 
argument that a restriction had 
to be read into section 7( IXc) in 
the sense suggested because a 
perusal of the Act showed that 
there were other express pro- 
visions regulating appeals that 
might be thought to be un- 
necessary if the paragraph was 
as wide as the company sug- 
gested. 

Like Lord Justice Balcombe. 
his Lordship accepted that the 
right of appeal to the county 
coun under section 8(4) against 
the service by the rating author- 
ity of a notice that a newly 
erected building had been com- 
pleted might seem anomalous, 
although one could readily see 
that the technical questions 
likely to be raised on such an 


appeal might have been cOusid- 
• ered more suitable for decision 
by a county court judge than fry 
quarter sessions. 

His Lordship found nothing 
in that that persuaded him that 
the very wide words in which 
section 7(1 Xc) was expressed 
bad to be restricted in the way- 
suggested. 

Finally, like the Court of 
Appeal- be found nothing in the 
point that the crown court was 
not an appropriate tribunal for 
hearing appeals against a taring 
authority s administrative de- 
cisions. 

He could readily see that a 
rehearing in a crown court by a 
judge and two or more mag- 
istrates of the rating authority’s 
decision, taken in the light of all 
the local facto re that the rating 
authority was likely to be in the 
best position to assess, was 
something that might be at- 
tended by a good deal of delay 
and administrative inconve- 
nience if such appeals came to 
be regularly pursued. 

Nevertheless, from the earii- 
.est times the legislation had 
conferred on ratepayers the very 
widest rights of appeal that 
Parliament, in enacting the 
consolidating legislation, had 
not thought fit to confine or 
restrict except to the extent 
expressly mentioned. 

The imposition of further 
restriction was a matter for 
Parliament It could not prop- 
erty be introduced for the first 
time in centuries by the process 
of placing, artificially, a limited 
construction on the very wide 
words that the legislature had 
chosen deliberately to employ- 

His Lordship could find no 
context from which such a 
limiting construction could 
property be inferred, and he 
would dismiss the appeal. 

Lord Keith, Lord Brandon, 
Lord Templeman and Lord 
Griffiths agreed.

Monarch Assurance Co Ltd v 
Income Tax Special Commis- 
sioners and Others 
Before Mr Justice Hoffmann 
[Judgment given April 24] 

Tax inspectors had wide pow- 
ers under section 20 of the Taxes 
Management Act 1970 (as sub- 
stituted by Schedule 6 to the 
finance Act 1976) to obtain 
documentary information 
regarding the affairs of a tax- 
pawr. 

If such information con- 
cerned income, profits or gains 
derived from any business car- 
ried on by a taxpayer then any 
company bad to produce docu- 
ments to an inspector providing 
some economic nexus existed 
between the assets comprising 
any such business and the 
alleged income, profits or gains. 

Mr Justice Hoffmann so held 
in dismissing an appeal by 
Monarch Assurance Co Ltd 
against an anuund of nominal 
penalties imposed on it by a 
special commissioner fra its 
failure to comply with two 
notices served on it by a tax 
inspector requiring it to produce 
certain documents. 

Mr Michael Ashe fra Mon- 
arch Assurance; Mr Alan Moses 
for the Crown. 

MR JUSTICE HOFFMANN 
said that an inspector was 
investigating a scheme under 
which some employees of 
Carhon Industries Lid were 
granted options to buy shares in 
that company. 

In 1979 Monarch was party to 
transactions whereby some of 
the options were exchanged for 
options to buy shares in Isle of 
Man companies. 

The inspector considered that 
documents in the possession of 
Monarch might show that in 
addition to the exchange (to 
which prima facie “roll-over" 
relief applied) assignments fra. 
valuegiving rise to taxable gains 
had occurred- 

Section 20(4) empowered the 
inspector to serve notice on any 


company to produce documents 
in so far as his inquiries related 
to a taxpayer's liabilities “in 
respect of income; profits or 

rains derived from any 

business". 

The issue was whether the 
alleged gains were or might have 
been “derived from” the busi- 
ness of Carhon. 

Fra Monarch it was said not: 
the alleged gains received by the 
employees came from the third 
parity to whom the options were 
assigned: the assets of Carlton 
were not, it was said, the source 
of any such gains. 

The provision required the 
gains to have been derived from 
“any business carried on by the 
taxpayer" and that was some- 
thing, different from the com- 
pany owning the business. 

The business was a collection 
of assets and for section 20(4) to 
apply there had to be an 
economic nexus between those 
assets and the alleged g ai n s. 

However any gains realized 
by dealing in the assets of the 
business, or in securities deriv- 
ing their value from that of the 
business, could all be said to be 
"derived from” that business. 

The provision contemplated 
that an inspector might need 
information about the tax liabil- 
ities of persons conducting busi- 
nesses. For that purpose be 
could obtain information from 
persons conducting other busi- 
nesses.

There was no rational reason 
for restricting that power to 
cases in which the tax liability 
arose from receipt of assets 
which belonged to the business 
and excluding it wben it arose 
from dealings with those assets, 
or securities based on them, 
which resulted in a receipt from 
someone else. 


The notices were within the 
inspector’s powers and the ap- 
peal was dismissed.

Appealing from justices over arrears 


Berry v Berry 

Before Lord Justice May, Lord 
Justice Ralph Gibson and Sir 
David Cairns 
[Judgment given April 25] 

There was no right of appeal 
to the High Court for a decision 
of justices on an application to 
remit arrears of maintenance. 

1 other than by case stated under 
i section 111 of the Magistrates' 
Court Act 1980. which lay only 
where it was alleged that the 
justices had erred in law or had 
acted without or in excess of 
jurisdiction. 

The Court of Appeal so held 
in a reserved judgment, dismiss- 
ing an appeal by the husband, 
Mr Raymond Berry, from a 
decision of the Divisional Court 
of the Family Division (Sir John 
Arnold. President. Mr Justice 
Bush; Mis Justice Booth 
1 dissenting), which on January 
20 had di missed his appeal from 
a refusal of the Barnstaple 
1 Justices to remit arrears of 
maintenance which be had been 
ordered to pay to his former 
wife. Mrs Josephine Berry. 

The Divisional Court had 
held that no appeal lay to the 
High Court under either section 
4(7) of the Maintenance Orders 
Acl 1958 or section 29( 1 ) of the 
Domestic Proceedings and 
Magistrates' Court Act 1978 
from a decision ofjustices on an 
application to remit arrears. 

Mr Geoffrey C. Brown for the 
husband; the wife did not 
appear and was not represented. 


Section 95 of the 1980 Act 
gave justices power, on the 
bearing of a complaint for. inter 
alia, enforcement or variation 
of a maintenance order to remit 
the whole or pan of sums due 
under the order. 

No complaint for remission 
simpliciier could be made, the 
power was merely ancillary to 
applications to which section 95 
referred, and no specific right of 
appeal was provided in respect 
of remission in any of the 
statutes. 

Section 4(7) of the 1958 Act 
and 29(1) of the 1978 Act 
conferred rights of appeal to the 
High Court m respect of applica- 
tions for the variation of 
maintenance orders. 

The question whether they 


operated to confer such a right 
in respect of applications for 


LORD JUSTICE MAY said 
that the justices had had before 
them three complaints: one by 
the wife for enforcement of 
arrears of maintenance due 
under an order made under Part 
1 of the 1 978 Act another by the 
wife for enforcement of such 
arrears due under a county court 
order registered in the 
magistrates court under sec- 
tions I and 2 of the 1958 Acl 
and the other by the husband for 
variation of the county court 
order. 


remission of arrears had been 
considered in Mills v Mills 
((1982) 12 Fam Law 174). Allen 
v Allen (The Times June 29. 
1984: (1985) Fam 17) and 
Fletcher v Fletcher f The Times 
January 25. 1985; 119851 Fam 
92). 

In the instant case the major- 
ity in the Divisional Court held 
that it was bound by Fletcher to 
hold that no right of appeal in 
respect of arrears arose under 
section 29(1) of the 1978 Acu 
that an appeal under section 
4(7) could arise only if a 
decision to remit or to refuse to 
remit arrears could be said to 
constitute a decision to vary or 
to refuse to vary the order under 
which they arose, which it 
plainly could mn. and that in 
any event the application for 
remission of arrears was more 
intimately connected with the 
complaints for enforcement (for 


appeal by case stated on a point 
of law or jurisdiction under 
section 111(1) of the 1980 Act, 
but had argued that where 
justices did have a complaint for 
variation of the original order 
before them, the “occasion" on 
which they exercised, or noL 
their remission powers was one 
within the words of section 4(7) 
of the 1958 Acl 
F urther, he had contended, 
even if remission or refiisai to 
remit did not amount to vari- 
ation or refusal to vary per se, it 
was incidental to or consequen- 
tial upon it: therefore by section 
29(2) or the 1978 Act an 
appellate court was entitled to 
order remission of arrears wben 
an appeal was property before h, 
and an order relating to re- 
mission should be considered to 
be within section 29(1) and the 
provisions of section 4(7) of the 
1958 Act should be considered 


That however, could not 
affect the question of the 
construction of section 4(7) of 
the 2958 Act and section 29(1) 
of the 1978 Acl regarding which 
he agreed with the view ex- 
pressed by the Divisional Court. 

All that section 95 of the 1980 
Act was intended to achieve was 
to give justices power in their 
discretion to alleviate a paying 
party’s situation in certain 
circumstances. 


One of the leading tour- 
naments in Britain has been 
cancelled because of a big drop 
in the number of competing 
teams. The Tachikara tour- 
nament ai Ounsdale High 
School. Wombourn, near 
Wolverhampton, was due to be 
held from May 24 to 25. 

Nick Shaflery, one of the 
organizers, put the Name fra the 
cancellation squarely on the 
teachers' dispute- “We are about 
39 teams down on last year’s 
entrants, when we had about 
120 teams. We have been 
particularly hard hit by the 
absence ofjunior teams and this 
is due to the impact of the 
teachers' dispute. But we hope 
to be back next year.” 

This would have been tbe 
thirteenth Tachikara and tbe 
previous 12 have established it 
as not only an important na- 
tional tournament ran also one 
capable of attracting inter- 
national interest Teams from 
the Netherlands and Kuwait 
were to have taken pm this 
year. 

Last yearts event was. how- 
ever. marred by incidents 
involving a gang of youths. A 
black player with Capital City 
Brixton, Demon McKenzie, had 
to have stitches in a facial 
wound after being attacked in a 
public house by a youth, who 
was later imprisoned for the 
assault. Also during the tour- 
namenL a gang of youths heck- 
led the Capital City team from 
the sidelines during one of their 
matches. 

Capital City left the tour- 
nament early and said they 
would not return. Denton 
McKenzie himself is in no 
doubt the attack was racially 
motivated. Nick Shaffery does 
not think that the drop in the 
number of entries is connected 
to the events of last year. “I 
don't think three-quarters of the 
people taking part even knew 
what had happened," be said. 
“It was a one-off situation and 
the people concerned have been 
rounded up and dealt with."

Women in 
search of 
an identity 


By Joyce Whitehead 


Britain's women are progress- 
ing in their efforts to get 
sufficient qualifications to be 
considered for the Olympics. 

Their problem is that En- 
gland, Scotland and Ireland are 
separate countries for the World 
Cup in July and. tberefttre. these 
results cannot count for 
Britain's track record. In con- 
trast, aft the other countries are 
units in themselves fix' the 
World Cup and Olympics so do 
not need extra matches. 

Two tournaments wffl give 
Britain the chance to earn an 
Olympic place: a four nations 
event arranged by the United 
States in Trenton, New Jersey, 
between October 29 and 
November 2 to which Britain, 
South.. Korea and Argentina 
have been invited, and a contest 
between eight countries in Edin- 
burgh from Arad 3 to 12 next 
year. 

The Federation 

Internationale de Hockey has 
given its consent to the latter 
contest which will involve 
teams from Britain, South Ko- 
rea, Japan. US, New Zealand. 
West Germany, The Nether- 
lands and the Soviet Union. 

If Britain do well in both these 
tournaments they should have 
foe necessary record to be in the 
running for selection for the 
Olympics. 

This problem of separate 
identities for the four home 
countries at times seems almost 
insurmountable. Ail of them 
jealously guard their individual 
status and regard the idea of 
playing only as Britain as 
unthinkable, even though foe 
rest of foe world might see this 
as rational. It may one day have 
to become a reality. 

Meanwhile, from today the 
England Under -21 players have 
a trial and training weekend at- 
Lilleshall in preparation for the 
four nations tournament in ~ 
Mulheim, near Dussektorfr 
from June 5 to 8 with f-anarfa : 
and the Netherlands also taking 
part. The England team will be 
announced on Monday.

as a matter of construction

question of remission would lie.

Lordship agreed with the 
criticisms made in the earlier 
case of the difficulty facing 
potential appellants and of foe 
two different appeal routes 
which an aggrieved party would 
have to use when appealing 
from a decision of justices at a 
hearing at which enforcement, 
variation and remission had 
been sought and considered 
together. 

It was high lime that reforms 
to rationalize, simplify or im- 
prove the appellate procedures 
were carried ouu 

A refusal to remit ar re ars 
could be more serious to a 
paying party than a refusal to 
vary, and the scope of appeals in 
repsect of foe former should be 
as wide as for the fatter. 

When the financial situations 
of parties changed, substantial 
arrears could accumulate before 
an application to vary could be 
heard; his Lordship would re- 
serve his opinion on the 
President's holding that re- 
mission was more intimately 
connected with enforcement 
than with variation.

should maintain their place as

Since they send a squad to the

the Coral Newmarket Stakes. 
This is the Shirley Heights colt 
that Henry Cecil has been 
speaking well of for some 
vriiile now. Out of a tough 
mare who won 12 times In 
Italy, Verd-Antique is thought 
to be a cut above average and, 
perhaps, even a group one

While neither cut much ice

only fair to expect them to

Yet taken overall it will be 
disappointing if Sip Anchor is 
beaten. 

Earlier in the day Cautben

Results page 30 


Bui Verd-Anlique is not the 
only decent maiden in the 
field. Hawarden finished a 
highly creditable fourth be- 
hind Armada in foe Wood 
Ditton Stakes while Hello 
Ernani so nearly won the 
Italian 2,000 Guineas in a 
blanket finish. 

Walter Swinburn is another 
jockey with doubly good pros- 
pects this afternoon. He can 
by winning the EBF 
libra ham Maiden Stakes on 
Naturally Fresh, who looked 


so desperately unlucky not to 
win first time out here during 
the Craven meeting. 

Later Swinburn will be on 
Kabiyla in the Charles 
Heidsieck Champagne Handi- 
cap. Here foe handi capper 
might have erred in giving her 
so little weight Admittedly, he 
had only her solitary victory at 
Leicester last Autumn to work 
on, but he did not have much 
more evidence on which to 
base bis assessment of Some- 
thing Casual, Twice Bold and 
Dancing Eagle and they have 
all been set to give my 
selection weight 
Ray Cochrane can sustain 
his excellent start to foe 
season by winning foe Arling- 
ton Stakes on Mister Majes- 
tic, who already has a 
commendable performance 
over foe course and distance 
to his credit 

Later in the day Cochrane 
will be reunited with his old 
friend Luna Bid in foe Ely 


Handicap. But following that 
bitterly disappointing perfor- 
mance in foe Free Handicap I 
much prefer Major Jacko, 
who finished with such gusto 
to win a similar race during 
ibe Craven meeting. 

Meanwhile Richard 
Hannon’s imposing looking 
coll has blatemly failed to last 
seven furlongs on bad ground 
at Epsom. Now that be is 
running again over what 1 
regard as his right trip he is 
napped to confirm his earlier 
Newmarket running with Oh 
Boyar and also beat Man ion 
Dan into foe bargain. 

Finally, I can pass on a tip 
that foe fitting of blinkers on 
Glacier Lass is expected to 
have the desired effect in foe 
Bow Fell Maiden Fillies 
Stakes at Carlisle although I 
note with some trepidation 
that Ian Balding has decided 
to send foe Queers filly 
Northern Meeting there on a 
similar mission.

John 


O'Neill, the former

ey wftose career has been 
blighted by serious injuries, 
hws finally decided to call Ha 
day at foe age of 34. O’Neil! 
madn up his BUBd 10 QlBt foft 
saddle after a fall from 
Nohaimdns in foie Scottish 
Champion Hurdle at Ayr 13 


a career spanning 16 

, O'Neill partnered 901 

winners over jumps and was 
twice champion jockey, ffis 
winning taOy of 149 winners in 
foe I0f7-78 season remains a 
record. 

Success came at a price 
though- The popular Irishman 
broke virtually every bone in 
his body after some crashing 
folk. After many injuries 
O'Neill was advised by friends 

to retire, but he tovetHhe sport 



race was a real bogey event tor 
O’Neal, who foiled to com- 
plete foe course in eight 


On his future, O’Neffl said 
“1 wfll start training at foe 
beginning of foe next jamping 
season, and although inltSaHy 
I will stay in Cumbria, 1 will 
move ‘down country 1 later on. 
Dune had my ops and downs, 
bat have had some time to 
think about foe futu re in foe 
past two weeks. At the end of 
foe day ft*s nice to get out aQ in 
-one piece.'* 


Course specialists 


O'Neill who will start 
training next season 


were foe five-timer at Perth in 
1979 . when he heat 


and keptfighting his way hack- Barry's recor d of 1 25, and

After smashing a leg m a 
foil at Bangor six years ago it 
was feared, at one stage that 
foe limb may have to be 
amputated. However, al- 
though it took a long time for 

foe bones to heal, a year later 
be was bade In the saddle. 

O*Ne0] announced his, re-

The popular rider said that the

CRICKET: A WEST INDIAN CLOUD HANGS OVER GLAMORGAN 

Depending on Marshall 


By John Woodcock, Cricket Correspondent 


SQL'THAXfPTOS: Glamor- 
gan. with nine second innings 
wickets in hand, are 32 runs 
behind Hampshire. ■ 

Declaring at tea .yesterday. 
107 runs ahead. Hampshire 
still have a good deal left to do 
if they are to beat Glamorgan 
.today. As so often, it may 
depend in the end - on 
Marshall. 

With never a cloud in sight, 
and in temperatures warm 
enough to make watching a 
pleasure, batting was easier 
than on Wednesday, which is 
not to say that runs were 
cheap. In the evening Glamor' 
gan did. thoroughly well to lose 
only Hopkins, and he had seen 
Marshall off by the time he 
was out. 

Hopkins will not forget the 
over in which he nicked the 
scourge of England three times 
for four. 

Hampshire were assured of a 
good Ie3d by a third-wicket 
partnership of 143 between 
Christopher Smith and Terry. 
Robin Smith had played on to 
Derrick a good ball that came 
back down the slope: but his 
brother. in his 1 00th game for 
Hampshire, was soon into his 
stride, hitting Thomas for 


Lamb is a 
cut above 
the others 


three fours in an over and 
generally playing well. 

When he was not in Sri 
Lanka last winter this elder 
Smith was busy marketing 
advertising space for Hamp- 
shire. and very successful he 
looks to have been. The 
hoardings made a colourful 
show in yesterday's sunshine 
and gave the ground a pros- 
perous look A word for the 
groundsman, too: considering 
all the rain there was in April, 
he has provided an admirably 
firm pitch. 

Terry has also started the 
season welL Though not now 
as free as his partner. Smith, 
he played some lovely cover 
drives. One of the two should 
have scored a 100: but not 
long after lunch, in successive 
overs. Smith, looking for runs 
on the off side, played on. and 
Terry was spectacularly 
caught in the gully by On long, 
diving io his lefi. 

That was 1 96 Tor four, time 
for Marshall to come in and 
make a rapid 45. Given a 
regular place at No 6 in the 
order, there is no earthly 
reason why Marshall should 
not make his 1.000 runs for 
the season, many of them with 


a nonchalance to disconcert 
the best of bowlers. 

ft was in this corresponding 
march a year ago that Thomas, 
by bowling as fast as MarshalL 
first brought himself to the 
selectors' notice. He was re- 
membered for having inflicted 
some painful blows oa 
Hampshire's batsmen. This 
time he has bowled rather too 
short, as though he might have 
been spending the winter in 
the West Indies. So. for that 
matter, has Moseley, which 
might have done for 
Littleborough in the Central 
Lancashire League (he took 
121 wickets for them last 
season at seven runs apiece) 
but was ineffective yesterday. 

When Steele bowled some 
flat left-arm slows Smith, tak- 
ing a couple of paces, drove 
him twice for six. On tong gave 
his faster bowlers most of the 
work which they undertook 
willingly enough. Holmes is 
obviously a more than useful 
all-round cricketer and Der- 
rick a sturdy one. 

But it has not been a lucky 
match for Glamorgan. On 
Wednesday they lost what was 
a good toss to win and 


Whitaker makes 
Lancashire toil 


Bv lvo Tennant 

CANTERBURY: Kent (3 pts) 
are 4} runs ahead of North- 
amptonshire (6) with eight sec- 
ond innings wickets in hand. 

For the second day. batsmen 
made heavy work of their task at 
the St Lawrence ground. Apart, 
that was. from an excellent 72 by 
Allan Lamb which outshone 
even his captain's century. 
Geoff Cook batted for more 
than five hours, his 109 span- 
ning Northamptonshire's 
innings. 

- The pitch was still damp and 
far from suited to free stroke 
play. But for Lamb's innings, it 
would have been rather a te- 
dious day. Northamptonshire 
had the slowest of starts, exacer- 
bated because Larkins was not 
playing. Three days before pre- 
season training began, be was 
carried off and the opposition 
goalkeeper sent off after a 
contretemps in a United Coun- 
ties match. It needs hardly be 
said that: Northamptonshire are 
not keen on him playing football 
in the close season. 

Geoff Cook's partner was 
Stone, who spent two hours 12 
minutes compiling .26. With 
three minutes to go to lunch, he 
chanced his arm for the first 
time and pulled a long hop from 
CliristopherCowdrey straight to 
mid-wicket. 

Northamptonshire lunched 
on 83 for one and lost Boyd- 
Moss soon afterwards, caught at 
first slip off Dilley. There were 
occasions when DtUey got some- 
thing out of the pitch with his 
extra pace and looked an En- 
gland bowler. Otherwise its 
sluggishness disheartened him. 

Lamb's innings was a cut 
above anything else in this 
match. In his firet innings since 
returning from the West Indies, 
he timed his drives splendidly, 
especially the straight ones. 

During the session between 
lunch and tea. Lamb added i 10 
in 34 overs with Cook 72 of 
which were his. He had hit 10 
fours and a straight sis when he 
swatted Dilley. somewhat care- 
lessly. to Graham Cowdrey at 
mid-wicket. 

Cook went on to reach his 100 
in 306 minutes with 10 bound- 
aries. partnered by Bailey. He 
declared 22 behind in the hope 
that Kent will make a game of it 
today.

Belligerent Botham 
hits 61 off 50 balls 


By Peter Marson 


Ian Botham was in majestic 
form with the bat at Queens 
Park, Chesterfield, yesterday, 
when he hammered 
Derbyshire's bowlers, hitting 61 
off 50 balls. Somerset had begun 
the day 113 runs behind at 110 
for three. Hardy 24 not out. Rose 
10. These two added 66 for the 
fourth wicket before Rose fell to 
a catch off Newman. 

Rose's departure was also the 
advent of Botham. If perchance 
there were some among those 
seated round the boundary who 
had yet to get a dose look at this 
giant of a man at his belligerent 
and bludgeoning best, then their 
moment came now as he dis- 
patched the bowling to all parts 
of the ground. 


which he bit a six and 10 fours 
off 34 balls. 


I slipped a couple of quick 
peanuts past the vigilant 
Charles, then retreated to a place 
called the Andrew Sandwich 
Room, or something like that, 
where it is possible to watch the 
cricket and eat at the same time. 
A sinister black bag had been left 
unattended there, so I took 
much pleasure in asking Charles 
to remove il 

This operation he supervised 
from a distance, though the hard 
labour was carried out by Julie, 
a pretty and efficient girl from 
(he office. I was pleased to learn 
that several pints and sand- 
wiches were consumed in the 
Long Room during the absence 
of Charles on National Service. 

The cricket went first Surrey's 
way. then swung towards Not- 
tinghamshire. Nottinghamshire 
began at 25 for oik, Robinson 
our. They laboured for. a while ! 
and at lunch, after 47' overs, 
were 120 for four. When John- 
son was out, bowled by Pocock 
for a steady 33. their total was 
only 1 32. The day was fine, but 
the pitch a little lively, and tbe 
outfield still a little damp. They 
were not easy conditions for 
batting. 

However, Birch and Hadlee 
gradually made them appear so. 
Both were anxious to attack, as 
is their natural style, and they 
had put on more than 100 runs 
before Birch was caught at the 
wicket off Doughty. That was 
244 for 6, in the 77th over. 

Hadlee is an interesting bats- 
man. He is not just a slogger, 
though he does that too. of 
course. He [Hayed a drive to 
raid-wicket off his toes which 
reminded me sharply of another 
great New Zealander. Martin 
Donnelly. 

Afterwards, tbe fourth batting 
point was duly secured in the 
89th over, and we had some 
vigorous strokes from French, 
though Hadlee languished, and 
was seen to be limping, as he 
approached his 100. This he 
achieved, however, in the 94th 
over. It was an innings which 
has kept Nottinghamshire in the 
match, and must have given 


YACHTING 


Three men to watch Swiss close on record 


By Srikvmar Sen, Boxing Correspondent 


England’s intentions of mak- 
ing a spectacular medals hud in 
the Co mm o n wealth Games in 
Edinburgh became amply clear 
when they dominated the George 
Wimpey-sponsored ABA semi- 
finals at Prestos last month to 
take 20 of tbe 24 places m 
tonight's finals at Wembley 
Arena. 

Scotland corid provide otrfy 
three, Andrew Dociies ty (Cray 
Miners) at flyweight, David 
Anderson (BenahMston), at 
feather and Harry Lawson (St 
Francis) at fight-heavy. This 
was a disappointment after their 
6-6 draw « pnK* England at 
Gateshead m January- Wa)es . 
have just one finalist, Jonathan 


A lsop (Cardiff YMCA), at light- 
. we Iter. 

Not only is tbe England 
achievement a tribute to the 
squad training of their national 
coach, Kevin Hickey, it is also , 
an indication that there is talent 
on the way np. The men to watch : 
are Pud Hodldnson. from 
Kirkby, at featherweight a com- 
pact ilHonl boxer with a 
punch, Darren Dyer, of St 
Monica's, Loudon, who has won 
all his six boots inside the 
distance, and John Lyon, a 
flyweight from Green hall St 
Helens, win is going for bis fifth 
title to equal the achievement of 
I >kJi McTaggart, Terry Waller 


The Swiss yacht UBS Switzer- 
land is set to break tbe record of 
the Whitbread round-the-world 
race despite a hot pursuit from 
pop star Simon le Bon in the 
English yacht Drum, a spokes- 
woman for tbe race said (Reuter 
reports). 

UBS Switzerland, last re- 
ported as having a 2(X>-mile lead 
over Drum in the final, fourth 
leg of the race, was expected to 
sari into Portsmouth between 
May 8 and 10. 

Tire record, set in 1982 by the 


Dutch boat Flyer, is 120 days, 
six hours and 34 minutes, but 
UBS Switzerland had three days 
and six hours in hand at the end 
of the third let 
Fourteen of tin original 15 
starters are still competing in the 
27,000-mile race. They were last 
reported to be 500 miles south 
of the Azores, an area of 
unpredictable weather, and 
about 1.800 miles from Ports- 
mouth. where the race began last 
September.

FRIDAY MAY 2 1986 


THE 


TIMES 




Midway Lady 
storms home 


Midway Lady, the filly origi- 
nally chosen last week by 
Lester Piggott for his come- 
back to the saddle, is now 3-1 
favourite for the Oaks after 
staying on too strongly for 
Maysoon and Sonic Lady in 
the General Accident 1.000 
Guineas at Newmarket 
yesterday. 

Ridden to perfection by Ray 
Cochrane, the filly on whom 
Piggott won the Prix Marcel 
Boussac at Longchamp last 
autumn, was brought with a 
Storming late run to win by 
threequarters of a length. Only 
a short head separated the 
Michael Stoute stable compan- 
ions in second and third place. 

This was a first classic 
triumph not only for the 29- 
year-oid jockey, but also for 
Ben H anbury, the Kentucky- 
bred filly's trainer. “The two 
best judges in the country, 
Lester Piggott and Pat Eddery, 
both told me last week that she 
would win," said the trainer 
afterwards. 

Talking about the abandon- 
ment of his original intention 
to bypass the Guineas for the 
Musidora Slakes at York, 
Hanbury explained,“the filly 
worked really well at Yar- 
mouth last week and showed 
me that she'd come to bersdC 
Lester came round on Friday 
night and agreed to ride her, 
but unfortunately later decided 
to honour other commitments. 

I told him last season that he'd 
ride my first classic winner for 
me, but sadly be decided that it 
was time to go." 

The always dapperly- 
dressed Hanbury, aged 39, has 
now been training at Newmar- 
ket for 12 years. Two seasons 
ago he saddled Kala Dancer to 
win the Dewhurst Stakes, but 
the colt subsequently disap- 
pointed as did the trainer’s 
other two-year-old star that 
season, the filly Kashi Lagoon. 

“It's fantastic to have 
trained a classic winner at 
last," be continued, “there was 
so much pressure last season 
when everything went wrong.** 
Hanbury than paid tribute to 
the winning rider. “Ray is the 
jockey’s jockey. He’s a real 
professional I went a fixriong 


By Michael Seely 

or two down the course last 
night, then I suddenly saw Ray 
with his white dog. He’d 

walked the whole of the Row- 
ley Mile." 

In 1977 Cochrane became 
temporarily too heavy for the 
flat. He took out a licence to 
ride jumping and had 12 
winners over hurdles. He 
made his comeback in 1979 
and bit the headlines in 1984 
when winning the St James's 
Palace Stakes, the Sussex

brilliantly fast Chief Singer. 

Talking about the race after- 
wards Cochrane said'“I was 
surprised when Waiter 
Swinbum didn’t take Sonic 
Lady over to the for rail. I 
started to move up at halfway' 
and made my effort at the 
Bushes. When Midway Lady 
hit the rising ground she really 
flew. She's certain to win the 
Oaks." 

Apart from the winner, Son- 
ic Lady and Maysoon were the 
only other pair that looked 
likely to succeed as they du- 
elled for the lead racing down 
into the Dip. Michael Stoute 
had now had the unfortunate 
experience of having watched 
eight fifties finish in the first 
four in the 1.000 Guineas in 
the past few years. 

“Sonic Lady stayed the mile 
aft right," he said philosophi- 


cally afterwards “but I'm going 
to wait for a bit before deciding 
whether Maysoon wfl] go for 
the Oaks." 

Midway Lady was bred at 
the Shadowlawn Stud at Mid- 
way in Kentucky and was sold 
for $42,000 at the Keeneland 
September sale. She ran in the 
colours of her breeder, Harry 
Ranier, who repurchased the 
filly after the auction. 

Earlier in the afternoon we 
had seen another live candi- 
- date for the Oaks in Gesedeh, 
whom Tony Ives brought with 
a well-timed run to beat 
Sanriki by IMt lengths in the 
Pretty Polly Stakes. 

“This must be the best three- 
year-old filly I’ve ever 
trained," said Michael Jarvis, 
the winning trainer, "she’ll 
sow go straight to Epsom and 
I'm sure She’D stay a mile and a 
halt" 

-■ Gesedeh belongs to Ahmed 
A1 Maktoum, the youngest of 
the five brothers from Dubai, 
and half an hour earlier Sheikh 
Mohammed, the third mem- 
ber of the quintet from the 
United Arab Emirates, had 
watched his maroon and white 
colours carried to victory by 
Nino Bibbia m the Hastings 
Maiden Stakes. "This is a 
pretty good colt," said Luca 
Cumani with justification a£ 
terwards, “but I'm going to see 
how he comes out of this race 
before deciding on his future. 

In the opening May Stakes 
Guy Harwood showed another 
possible candidate for the Der- 
by when Gievifte Starkey rode 
Ailez Milord to a head victory 
over All Haste: Considering 
that the winner was conceding 
131b to the highly regarded 
runner-up, this was a useful 
performance. 

“I’ll probably run him in the 
Predominate Stakes at 
Goodwood to see if he's good 
enough for the Derby,” said 
Harwood. The Pulborough 
trainer then confirmed Ural 
Bakharoff will have his first 
outing of the season in the 
Lingfidd Derby Trial tomor- 
row week.

BOXING 


The champion from nowhere 


By Srikmnar Sen, Boxing Correspondent 


Everyone in British boxing

except, that is, Dennis

champion, and his manager,

Johnson and Tom Co llins 
(whom he met five times), 
would never have imagined 
that sheer dogged ness and self-

think over the best one. 

Andries can meet the World 
Boxing Association champi- 
on. Marvin Johnson, or the 
International Boxing Federa- 
tion champion, Slobodan 
Kacar, of Yugoslavia, to unify 
the titles, or be can take on 
Jean-Marie Emebe, of the 
Cameroon, the No 1 WBC 
challenger, or face Tony 
Sibson, the Commonwealth 
middleweight champion from 
Leicester. Sibson would have 
to be moved up into the light- 
heavy top 10 by the WBC to 
challenge Andries. But, as No 
5 in the WBC middleweigbts, 
this move should not be 
difficult It has been done by 
others like John Mogabi, 
Wilfredo Gomez. Alexis Ar- 
guefto and others. 

Sibson seemed surprised at 
first at the suggestion at the 
Press conference to hear what 
the world champion had to 
say, but then like a true pro 
recovered quickly to say: “If I 
cheat a couple of days on my 
diet I can make light-heavy- 
weight Anyway I train with 
fight-heavyweights and heavy- 
weights all the time.” 
Andries's answer to all this 
speculation is: “Bring em alL 
Hi be there." 

The defence against Sibson 
is the one uppermost in the 
mind of Frank Warren, who 
put on the light-heavyweight 
championship at Picketts 
Lock, north London, in con- 
junction with Don King, the 
big American promoter. It 
would be the first all-British 
woridtitle bout since Jim Watt 
met Charlie Nash six years 
ago. 

There should be a bigger 
crowd than the 2.000 or so at 
Picketts Lock. “Dennis should 
have had a better turnout than 
that in his own country. When 
we meet I bet it will be a good 
crowd,” Sibson said. Warren 
added: “I could pul it on at the 
National Exhibition Centre, 
Birmingham" 

The man left out of all these 
plans was Williamson. With 
his left eye half closed be 
pleaded fora rematch. “I hope 
he will give me a chance like I 
gave him by bringing my title 
to his country," be said. He 
would box differently next 
time. He would listen to his 
comer and box from a 
distance. 

What boxing Williamson 
was allowed to show by 
Andries was a delight, espe- 
cially his inside work and his 
body shots. Andries followed 
the right strategy by sitting on 
him from the start. No doubt 
in a rematch the champion 
would do it again and with 
greater authority.

FOOTBALL: LIVERPOOL ON THE BRINK OF LEAGUE AND CUP 


Atletico do 
their bit 
for Spain 


With Real Madrid - having 
gone a long way to winning the 
UEFA Cup on Wednesday 
and Barcelona appearing in 
the European Cup final next 
week, Atletico Madrid will be 
doing their bit to ensure 
Spanish domination of this 
season’s club tournaments 
when they meet Dynamo Kiev 
in the final of the Cup 
Winners' Cup in Lyon 
tonight 

The Kiev team arrived in 
Paris on Wednesday refusing 
to discuss the Chernobyl nu- 
clear disaster and it remains to 
be seen whether their perfor- 
mance wfll be affected. 

It promises to be a fascinat- 
ing encounter, not least as a 
guide to individuals' form for 
the coming Worid Cup. 
Atletico. with a lower profile 
than their neighbours Real or 
Barcelona, have two players 
who are in the Spanish squad 
for Mexico, Tomas and 
Setien, a defender and forward 
respectively. At 28, Setien is 
something of a late developer, 
having only realized his po- 
tential this season when join- 
ing Atletico from Raring 
Santander. 

Much of their attacking 
hope, however, will be pinned 
on a Uruguayan, Da Silva, one 
of Spain's leading goal-scoreTS 
this season and an impressive 
performer during his 
country’s recent match against 
Wales in Wrexham. 

Dynamo, however, are like- 
ly to offer formidable resis- 
tance. In Demianenko, 
Baltacfaa and Bessonov they 
have three defenders who 
between them can boast more 
than 130 international caps.* 
Kuznetsov, recently intro- 
duced into the Soviet side, 
completes their international 
back four. 

In terras both of experience 
and status, however, one Dy- 


Dalglish cautious 
about the double 


Liverpool’s 2-0 victory at 
Leicester City on Wednesday 
night and Everton’s 1-0 defeat 
at Oxford United has given 
the Anfidd dub a dear sight of 
the FA Cup and League 
double. 

If they beat Chelsea at 
Stamford Bridge tomorrow 
Liverpool will win the league 
title whatever Everton or West 
Ham United, who won 2-1 at 
home to Ipswich Town, might 
do. And, if they defeat Everton 
in the FA Cup Final a week 
later, Kenny Dalglish will 
become the first player-man- 
ager to carry off the double — 
and in his first season in 
charge 

Bui Dalglish bad this cau- 
tious comment yesterday: 
“Every game we have played 
recently has been like a cup 
final and Chelsea on Saturday 
will not be any different" 

• Alan Mullery has con- 
finned that he wants to return 
as manager of Brighton and 
Hove Albion following the 
dismissal of Chris Catflin after 
less than three years in charge. 

Mullery, who is out of work 
having left a printing compa- 
ny. said: “I'm very interested 
indeed about coming back to 
Brighton. I fed I have a dose 
affinity with the fans and 
believe I have plenty to offer. I 
will be applying right away." 


Mullery led Brighton into 
the first division for the first 
lime in their history in 1979 
and was in charge for five 
years until he resigned in June 
1981 after a row ova- staff 
cuts. 

Brighton, who have had 
seven managers in the last 14 
years, are advertising the post 
and Bryan Bedson, the chair- 
man, said that they have 
nobody in . particulars 
minrLAnother candidate for 
the job might be George 
Petchey, Cattlin's assistant 
The former Milhvall and Ori- 
ent manager has lived locally 
for years, and will be in charge 
of the team for the last match 
of the season at Hull City. 

Cattlin had one year of his 
contract remaining. He had 
said recently he would give it 
one more season and resign if 
Brighton failed to win promo- 
tion to the first division. Hie 
board were not prepared to 
wait that long. 

Brighton have lost seven 
out of nine games, dropping 
out of the promotion race in 
the process. Cattlin was frus- 
trated by having no money to 
spend on team strengthening. 
He has a flourishing gift arm 
rock shop on Brighton sea 
front and maintained be did 
not depend on football for his 
livelihood. 


Smith’s plan to beat 
the hooligans 


Liverpool's chairman, John 
Smith, yesterday revealed his 
plan to beat the bootigans 
when English dubs are even- 
tually allowed back into 
Europe. 

He wants all supporters 
barred from travelling abroad. 
Speaking at a Sports Writers' 
Association lunch In London, 
he said:"I also want to see the 
of aft the European 


porters only e? when they are 
guaranteed a ticket. ■ 

Tbe trouble makers go with- 
out a ticket and they wiD be in 
tbe minority. I would strongly 
advocate this system. We most 
eradicate this cancer is oar 
midst" 

Smith stressed that there 
has been far less hooliganism 
in football this season 



which won this competition in 
1975. Blokhin scored in that 
final against Ferencvaros and 
his two goals against Dukla 
Prague in the fust leg of the 
semi-final showed that at 33. 
his touch has not left him. 

However, if Blokhin is to be 
at his sharpest he will need to 
have recovered from a thigh 
injury 


Lyle gives 
support 

Sandy Lyle will be playing 
in the Whyte & Mackay PGA 
golf championship at Went- 
worth from May 23 to 26 
(Mitchell Platts writes). There 
was a doubt about Lyle’s 
participation because, as 
Open champion, he now com- 
mands appearance money and 
Whyte & Mackay had stressed 
that they would be following 
the PGA European Tour poli- 
cy of not paying any. 

Lyle, however, has decided 
that he will support what is 
considered to be the most 
prestigious tour event. He 
says: “I'm delighted to be able 
to say that I’m playing.”

SNOOKER 

Pink puts 
referee 
on the spot 

By Sydney Frisian 

Tbe strain of a long tourna- 
ment can also tell on a referee. 
Tony Knowles, who was in the 
middle of a break against Joe 
Johnson in their Embassy 
world championship . semi-fi- 
nal at Sheffield yesterday, 
noticed that the pink ball 
which he had potted was on 
the wrong spot Tbe bail was 
safely restored to its normal 
place and Knowles went on to 
make 79, which gave him a 
lead of 2-1 in a scheduled 31- 
frame match due to be com- 
pleted tomorrow , 

Knowles and Johnson be- 
gan what looked like a re- 
enactment of tbe Professional 
Players’ tournament final in 
1983 when Knowles won 9-8 
in a tense finish. Johnson 
replied to Knowles's break of 
79 yesterday with a 31 to level 
the scores at 2-2. At the end of 
the day Johnson led 4-3. 

Johnson, the surprise pack- 
et of the tournament, is due 
fin- his big pay day. He is 
assured of at least £21,000, 
which is almost as much as his 
earnings for the season so far. 
His highest cheque this season 
was £6,750 in foe Mercantile 
Credit Classic. He was by no 
means overawed by the occa- 
sion yesterday, nonchalantly 
doubling a red in the second 
frame in the process of malting 


a break of 44 to level at 1-1. 

Cliff Thorbum, of Canada, 
who qualified to meet Steve 
Davis in the second semi- 
final, said that so far he had 
not been extended and that he 
bad become stronger and 
stronger wkh every match. He 
added that he was happier 
with this situation, instead of 
beginning strongly and blow- 
ing himself out. He watched 
tbe awesome 13-5 demolition 
of Jimmy White by Davis and 
is left with no illusions about 
tbe magnitude of his task in a 
match which also ends tomor- 
row .

The ting 
that 

England 

needs 

; Ossie AnSes always makes 
me fed sad- Perhaps this is 
because be always looks so 
h a ge- cye d. little and lost on 
the footbal l field — until, with 
an are of infinite regret, be 
carves open the opposing de- 
fence. Last night he had a 
testimonial g ,BW> i Tottenham 
Hotspur against brier Milan, 
and I hope It made him a 
fortune. For Ardfles also 
makes me feel guilty. He has 
had such a hornMe time ever 
since tbe affray in the Falk- 
iands — and it is all our faniL 

When Artfiles came to play 
for Spots after tbe 1978 Worid 
Cup — which he woo with 
Argentina- he arrived speak- 
ing fractured Eagfish, pfaying 
joyful football, and became 
renowned as the man who pot 
tike ting m “Tottinghain". But 
m the past three years his 
fnnfhgTTmg life has been spec- 
tacularly short of tiBg. 

“Only players who are un- 
happy-get iqjond,** Ardfles 
said in his palmy days with 
Spears, when every Saturday 
was a day full of ting, zing and 
delight. Bnt after a year of 
unhappy exile a Paris at the 
end of the tmdedared Falk- 
lands War he returned to 
Spires and has been perpetual- 
ly mjared. 

On tire rare occasions that 
he has played he has been 
booed with all tire patriotic 
fervour that a moron can 
muster. This most delightful of 
players, who embodies one of 
football's most agreeable 
traits— that of fare tittle guy's 
revenge on aO Che clumsy 
bullies of the world— became a 
hate object 


Sad figure making 
work for physio 


And Ardfles has gone from 
injury to injury ever since- If it 
has not been one thing, it has 
been another. “Perhaps the 
first injury was connected with 
my own instability at the 
time, " Ire told me. “ Other 
problems seemed to have fol- 
lowed from tire first injury. But 
this season I broke a bone in 
my hand, 1 had a double- 
hernia operation and then I 
twisted my knee.” . 

For tire past three seasons 
he has been a sad figure at 
Tottenham, playing reserve 
team games raid making work 
for the physio- His contract is 
at the end of the season. “I 
want to carry on playing — and 
I don’t want to play at a lower 
leveL” he said. “ I have the 
desire. Next year it wfll be no 
problem to play and I want to 
prove myself again. Bnt at the 
moment I don’t know where 1 
am.” 

I would love to see him back 
at the top. “Football is played 
all over the world and is 
beautiful,” he said. “ Bnt aft 
over the world the game has 
become more professional, and 
more cynical, perhaps because 
society has become more cyni- 
caL Football has suffered from 
a loss of spectacle aid a loss of 
emotion. I am a football purist 
- I don’t want football to be 
like that” 

Nor do L But football turned 
Ardfles, one of die nicest 
footballers around as well as 
oneof the best to watch, a man 
who exemplified many of tire 
id tilings in the game, into 
i most reviled player in 
England. English football 
doesn't deserve him. But I 
hope it doesn't lose him. 
English football could do with 
a spot more ting.

Nicholas in f amiliar 
but difficult position 



By Mitchell Platts 

Alison Nicholas retained 
her lead in the Ford Ladies 
Classic with a second round of

by one stroke from Vanessa 
Marvin, the former . English

Miss Nicholas is not unac- 
customed to leading, as she 
won the British strokeplay 
championship in 1983 from 
the from. Even so she will be 
under considerable pressure 
over tbe final 36 holes as she is 
seeking her first victory as a 
professional 

Two birdies in her first five 
holes ' on another glorious 
spring day enabled Miss Nich- 


b indies. Uselotte Neumann, of 
Sweden, had eight birdies in a 
72 for a total of 14S and Pia 
Nilsson, her compatriot, who 
returned a first round of 81, 
recovered splendidly with a 
68. She was out in 31.
