Chernobyl toll 


Mmcow (AP) — The Soviet 
leader, Mr Mikhail 
Gorbachov, said yesterday he 
IS extending the Russian iini- 
lainal moratoriuin on nuclear 
i^ng untii^ August 6 and 
invited^ President Reagan to 
meet him in a Europeani city 
or Hiroshima to a 

permanent lest ban. 

He told the ^viet people on 
television last ni^t that nine 
peofrie have died and 299 are 
in hospital from the 
OiOTobyl nuclear accident, 
which he said ^qtaienily was 
caused by a power snige and 
hydrogen explosion. 

“The accident at Cbemobji 
showed ^ain what an. at^^ss 
wiii open if nuclear war be&Us

said. 

“For inherent in the nudear 
arsenals stockpOed are thon-

sasters far more hornble than 
the Chemi^l one.** 

It was his firkpubUc state-

He said piat at a time when 
new attention was fixwsed on

The agency said that Mr 
Eric Sites, a defence attach^ 
had been arrested on May 7. 
Materials from him 

“frilly disclose his inteiltgeim

A qwkesman at the US 
Embas^ here later confirmed 
the expulsion and said that Mr 
Sites already left Russia. 

In March of this year Mr 
Michael Sellets, a Second 
Secretary m the embas^, was 
expelled in similar circum- 
stances. At the time, Tass used 
virmally identical phrasing to 
say he bad been cai^t during

Soviet citizen and was guilQf

Mrs Maj^aret Thatdier will 
face a cntical test of her 
leadership when she arrives in 
Perth tomorrow for the Scot- 
tish Tories' Conference, where 
morale among party activists 
is close to an all-time low. 

Battered by to Thursday's 
disastrous local election re- 
sults, which ended with the 
party losing effective control 
of three regional councils, the 
party north of the border is 
enga^ in anguished soul- 
searching. 

With the majority of Scot- 
tish MI^ knowing they fece 
defeat at the next el^on 
unless there is a significant 
revival, senior party freures 
are openly critical of the 
Government performance 
and, in eflbcl, of Mrs Thatch- 
er, 

■*-Mr Brian Meek, convnier 
of the Lothian Regional Coun- 
cil until last week's election 
defeats, expressed the fears felt 
by many. 

Wbat particularly saddened 
him about last u^’s elec- 
tions “was that my party

Mr McCroue; “We cannot 
ignore young vote." 


young vote. There was not just 
disenchantment there was 
open hostility." 

It was a sentiment con- 
firmed by Mr lain McCrone, 
president of the Scottish Con- 
servatives, who in his opening 
address to the conference 
yesterday said that the party 
could not afford to ignore the 
potential support of the 
young. He said: “A special 
effort is required to ensure 
that young people understand 
our Nicies." 

Mr Meek said* “These were 
not local elections we had to 
weeL They were not about 
Lothian's roadbuildtng plans, 
Grampian's scheme for pri- 
mary schools, nor even 
Liverpool's desire to confront 
the CfOvernmenL 
“instead, we bad voters 
telling the Conservative Pany 
it has miyudged the mood 
very badly." 

He said “If the Prime 
Minister would put the same 
dynamism into solving do- 
mestic problems as she does 
on the international stage, 
then I for one would give her 
wholesale backing." 

His conclusion is that Con- 
servative Parly fortunes will 
not be revived in Scotland or 
the rest of the UK until there 
is a substantia] reduction in 
unemploymenL 
It is against that background 
that Mrs Thatcher has to 
prepare a special address for 
the Scottish troops. 

As conference delegates ar- 
rived in Penh yesterday amid 
exliaordiiiarily tight security, 
it appeared the last thing they 
wanted to bear from Mrs 
Thatcher was a recipe for 
more of the same.

Teacher 
trainees 
to rise

Anthony Bevins 
Political CorFespondeiit 


Sfr Keith Joseph, I 
of State for Education 
Sdenee, yesterday annonneed 
plans to strengthen teacher 
training as die controversy 
over dneatioa policy was 
fnelled by two independent 
reports which anderliod the 
lack of central control over 
schools. 

In one of his final amronn ce- 
ments bdoce he reUnqedshes 
his post in the inuninent 
redudile. Sir Keith said in a 
written OtnuHnne re^y that 
be was increasn9 the target 
nanaber of teacher trainees Ihr 
1987-89 by 2460. 

He said: “My basic aim has 
been to allocate the overall 
nombers to institntions in the 
way most liltety to foster the 
further devefa^MDent of a 
qudity, cost-Mective and re- 
silieni systmn of initial teacher 
traiaii^ capable of responding 
Dexibly to changing demands 
in the 1990s." 

Those demands win be criti- 
cally determined by the Con- 
servative Party's manifesto 
proposals, which ffir Keitfa b 
expireted to formnlate once he 
leaves the Department of lo- 
cation and Science, and their 
app^ to the voters at the next 
election. 

Bnt fnrtiier indications of 
the difficnities faced by % 
Kritfa and the Conservatives 
were delivered in two reports 
pabtbhed y^entay. 

The Andit CommisskNi for 
Lo^ Anthorities in En^and 
and Wales said that o^y a 
qoarter of local edneation 
anthorities had responded 
fhlly to felling seboob rolls. 

The report s^ that Che 
present grant dbtribotioa sys^ 
tem coeld pnalbe aBthorities 
which wanted to invest in 
reorganization and si^gested 
that every aothority should 
consider r^ploy^ teachers, 
asing more part-time staff and 
encoaraging early retirements. 
It estimated that if no changes 
were made the eqoivalnt of 
1,000 schoob cDold be empty 
within five years. 

Senior Conserva ti ves have 
floated the possibili^ of intro- 
dneing a system of dvKl grant 
schools for the inner cities in a 
bid to overcome edncational 
problems.

Mr John Biffen, Leader of 
the Commons, yesterday 
warned that the Govern- 
ment's achievements could be 
wiped out by a Labour or an 
Alliance victory at the next 
election. 

In a speech directed as 
much at the Prime Minister as 
at voters. Mr Biflte said: 
“Success in that vital contest 
will go 10 those who win the 
affenion and the judgement 
and the confidence of the 
British public. 

Mr Biffen said on Sunday 
that the Conservatives should 
fight the election with a “bal- 
anced ticket" of ministeri^ 
talents to deflect attempts to 
exploit Mrs Thatcher's sup- 
po^ failings. 

He made no reference to the 
'nime Minister in a speech to 
the PariiamemaTy Press 
lery in the Commons yester- 
day. But Mr Biffen's speech 
will be seen as a warning to the 
pany leadership that it should 
not jeopardize the advances 
made since 1979. 

Mr Biffen said that iofbtion

NHS spending 
switch away 
from London 


mad, MP says 


8y Nkholfts Timmins, Soda! Seirices Comspondent 


The Government's poli^ of 
taking health service spenmng 
out ofLondon to poorer pans 
of the National H^th Service 
was yesterday branded as 
‘‘sheer political madness" by a 
letding Conservative back* 
bracher. 

Mr John Wheeler. Conser- 
vative MP for Westminster 
North and chainnan of the 
London Conservative MPs. 
yesterday wrote to the Prime 
Minister calling for an lugem 
review of the formula of the 
resource allocatioii working 


party (RAWP) which is nans- 
ferring money lh)m London 


ierring money Irom London 
and the four Thames health 
regions to the rest of the NHS. 

“No matter how hard we 
tO'<" he told the Prime Minis- 
ter, “there is no way in which 
the Government or MPs will 
be able to convince the t»eople 
of London that there is in- 
creased spending on the health 
service or indeed improve- 
ments in it when virtually 


earlier this week from consul- 
tants and 1 1 London teaching

His letter came as Mr 
Bam^ Hayhoe. Minister for 
Hedttt. responded to the con- 
sultants letter by saying it was 
“simply not true" that there 
had been a deterioration in 
London services. 

The consultants' claims, he 
said, were “pertml and 
ex^gerated" especially as 
many of them came from 
hoqritals which bad only re- 
cendy received new resources.

Defoice Correspondent 


Tbe AUinnee is planning a 
summer campaign to show 
that Labour is still in the 
han^ of the hard left, in spite 
of the efforts of Mr Neil 
Kinnock. party leader. 

A document, timed to coin- 
cide with the start of the party 
confetence season, will set out 
to persuade electors that after 
a general election the accept- 
^le &ce of the Labour Party, 
epitomized by Mr Kinnock. 
would swiftly give way to a 
government convoUed by the 
“loony left", liberals and 
Social Democrats plan to de- 


The proportion of the de- 
fence bud^ sprat on equip- 
ment will de^e over the 
next few years, Mr Georae 
Younger. Skteiary of State for 
Defence, admitted yesterday. 

One achievement which the 
Government has been most 


north-east Kngtand, is one of 
the towns in die British Ides 
which can least afford a body 
blow to one of its mainstay 
indnstrles. 

Once a prosperons indnstri- 
al cratre with an aedre 
woritfoice and diriving dioni- 
eals, steel and engmeering 
complexes, it was recently 
placed near the bottom in a 
league taUe which measured 
the relative im portance of 
sizeable British towns. 

Of 380 listings, Middles- 
broimh was placed number 
267 m a survey by the geogra- 
phy department at Newcastle 
University. And of the towns 
rated lowest most were in 
die same area in the north-east 
of England. The listing, whidi 
was compiled by Ik A C 
Champion and Dr A £ 
Greensubs: do not imaove this 
credit please was based on a 
combination of popnlation and 
employment chafes in the 
decade before the 1981 census 
and more op to date employ- 
ment figures which, in Mi^ 
dlesbrough at May last year,, 
stood at 21.4 per cent The 
change in employment which 
ondl 1978 had shown an 
upward variation of pins 5.95 
per cent dinied drastically to 
minus 1642 pa cent by 1981. 
Since then tbe shnation has 
farther detmiorated. 

At the top of the cross- 


of the workforce was to be laid include the total clbsuxe of the 
off in a deqierate eflbit to Smith's Dock on Tees^de,

Mr Younger was being

that more than 95 per cent of

this year is expected to be less

Tbe Scottish Conservative 
Conference was plunged into 
controversy last nig^t after 
tbe publication of a manifesto 
by the Federation of Conser- 
vative Students which advo- 
cates privatization of the 
nuclear power industry, I^al- 
ization of incest and prostitu- 
tion, and castration of rapists. 

The fetoratiqn, which de- 
scribed its policies as “i^cal 
Thatcherism", also called for 
the phasing-out of income tax. 
abolition of the wdfere state 
and the National Heaito Ser- 
vice, denationalization of 
money, and privatization of 
most'public services, includ- 
ing the police and the prisons. 

Senior Conservatives were 
cleariy embarrassed by toe 
launch of toe Scottish mani- 
festo which coincided with toe 
opening of the conference in 
Penh, and officials moved 
swiftly to distance themselves 
from Its contents. 

With morale among Scot- 
tish Conservatives at a low 
ebb, the publication of such a 


controversia] and potentially 
damaging document could 
hardly come at a worse time. 

Mr Malcolm Rifldnd. Secre- 
tary of State fbr Scotland, said 
diplomatically: “I much 
look forward to reading their 
proposals. The Conservative 
students have toe r^utation 
ftir vigorous originality, and I 
am sure their manifesto will 
live up to that reputation." 

Mr Simon Morgan, chair- 
man of the Scottish PCS and a 


third-year law student at Edin- 
burgh University, who 


launched toe manifesto, said 
that Mr Edward Heath, toe 
former Prime Minister, 
should be expelled finm toe 
Conservative Party while 
Cabinet Ministers, Mr Peter 
Walker and Mr John Biffen, 
should be dismissed, with the 
latter being “confined to a 
cage on the bade benches". 

The students also demand 
toe legalization of euthanasia, 
aboliton of licensing laws, and 
banning of raster office mar- 
riages, which they describe as 
“pa^ and disrespectful". 


I The Roman Catholic 
Chuidi has launched its cam- 
paign against Dr Gaonret 
FitzGerald's proposal to hold 
a referendum to remove toe 
constitutional ban on divorce 
in toe Irish Republic. 

Although, surprised by^ the 
speed with uhidi the coalition 
government acted, Msh^ 
have ordered toat a pastoral 
letter arguing against divorce 
be published, with one million 
cemies bel% distributed to toe 
feithftiL Ine letter win be 
issued at masses toronghont 
tbe country. 

In a statement, “Marriage, 
the Family and Divmce", toe 
church beirarchy used puri^ 
ink to hi^light the advice 
they wish enurefa-goers to 
remember. 

This hidnded statements 


I such as “divorce is always a 
' disaster for children"; “I do 


I not think many Protestants 
I really want this hm"; ai^ 
I “there are disnirbing indica- 
tions that toe divorce process; 
once started, has ajuggemaut- 
like momentum of its own". 


The tnshops argue that di- 
. voice defines aU marrfege as 
dissoluble rather than being 
for life, and say it is untrue 
that divorce laws afiect a 
minority of marriages niiich 
have irretrievably broken 
down. 

In the Dail, Mr Alan Dnkes, 
Minister for Justice, began toe 
debate on a propcnal for a 
referendum to remove the 
ban. But there was little to 
suggest it was what toe opposi- 
tion described as “one of the 
most ftindamental and fer 
reacting issues" ^ce toe 
foundation of toe state. 

At the start toere were 14 
deputies mit of 166 in the . 
di^bCT.'and this ^ to ftnir 
wiifain ^ first hour. 

Mr Dutes defended the 
Govenunent's plan to allow 
divorce on the grounds.of toe 
irretrievaUe breakdown, but 
only after a ooui^ had been 
separated fr)r five yeass. He 
said toe proposal was ressoxi- 
able, and did not allow “fiee 
fbr ^ unrestricted divorce".

Princess I ‘Anthrax 








pleads for 
‘forgotten 
children’ 

By Mark Dowd 

Princess MaigareL presi- 
dent of the NSPCC, yesterday 
made an urgent plea on behalf 
of young victims of negJecr. 
She referred to them as “for- 
gotten children". 

“There have recently been 
some appalling acts of ph>’si- 
cai violence, but let us not 
fotgei that ihm are thousands 
of children who suffer from 
oegtect," she said. 

“Thousands more can be 
stunted physically and emo- 
tionally ihrou^ lack of love 
or want of proper care." she 
continued. “These are the 
*foT9>tieD children' who we 
must never let the world 
fomt". 

The remarks were ad- 
dressed to 2,000 supporters, 
gathered for the NSPCC annu- 
al coundl meeting in London . 

Singled out for special atten- 
tion were the NSPCC child 
protection teams. 

The sodety's annual report, 
coverii^ die period from Oc- 
tober I, 1984, to September 
30, 1985, showed that more 
than 16.000 cases were dealt 
with, involving over 37.000 
cfaUdren. More than 12,000 of 
those were infants undi^ five. 

Among the new cases dur- 
ing the vear there were: 3,2M 
cases of Defect, 1 .580 cases of 
risk of physical injury. 1,468 
cases of suspected non-acci- 
dental injury, and 453 cases of 
sexual abuse.

The Royal Automobile 
Club is spending £20 million 
during the next two years to 
set up a computer-controlled 
rescue service to increase the 
speed of its brnUedown ser- 
vice. 

The move conies after a 
focl-finding lour of similar 
systems operating in Austra- 
lia, America, and West Ger- 
many. 

Five RAC centres wO) be 
opened next to motorways in 
London, Birmingham. Glas- 
gow, Stockport, and Bristol, 
beginning with Stockport ear- 
ly next year. 

Mr Arthur Laige, chief exec- 
utive of the RAC motoring 
services, said yesterday that 


the system, to be known as 
Computer Aided Road Ser- 
vices. would provide instant 
communication between the 
centres and nearly 1.000 pa- 
trol vans. 

The computer’s in-built 
street directory would pin- 
point the breakdown and pass 
the information to patrols, 
which would eventually have 
VDU screens in their vans. 

The RAC claims to answer 
eight out of 10 breakdowns 
within an hour, but would like 
to repeal the Australian re- 
sponse time of nine out of 10 
calls within 45 minutes. 

RAC membership has 
grown steadily in recent years, 
and is now 16 million. 


isle’ may 
go back 
to family 

By Ronald Faux 
“A beantifal place. A won- 
derfal ptace to watch foe birds 
Desdng.“ That is how Cofonel 
Peier Dnnphie remembers 
Gininard island off the coast 
of Ross and Cromarty in' 
Scodand before 1942, when 
the soil became infected by 
anthrax spores. 

Tlie anthrax was brought 
there by germ warfare specml- 
ists from Portmi Down who 
landed in 1942 to carry out 
experiments for a biological 
bomb. 

Now the island is likely to 
be offered back to Colonel 
Dnnphie's family after (he 
Ministry of Defence has 
cleaned foe infected soil in an 
operation likely to cost several 
million ponnds. 

“I am a little sorprised,** the 
colonel said yesterday. “We 
expected it back shortly after 
the war and here we are in 
1986. Bat I*m sure they have 
been workii^ very hard on it.** 
Work to decontaminate 
Gininard nsing a sprayed 
solution of forinahlehyde and 
sea water will begin this 
summer. Tests have sbown 
that not all of the isbiid's 520 
acres were affected by the 
disease, which can snrvive 
indefmitely in soiL 
The Ministry of Defence 
took over the island ^er 
payjng £500 to Mrs Alexander 
Maitland, foe owner, who was 
Colonel Domplile's late wife's 
annL 

Gniinard Is a low-lying oval 
shaped island now ovemm by 
rabbits who seem imm une to 
any antfara.\ spores that may 
still be in the ^ond. 

The island has no ia«Hing 
pier a^ visits are strictly 
Inhibited. It had become a 
sinister relic of foe war. It 
sprang back into foe 
in 1981 when an enviroameii- 
tal gronp called Dark Harvest 
sent what it claimed was a 
sample of Groinard soil to foe 
Porton Down research 
eslablishmeoL 
If Colonel Dnnphie and his 
fellow trustees decide qpt to 
take foe island back into foe 
estate its futnre will be 
uncertain. 

Any further military nse in 
such an environmentsill)' sen- 
sitive area would rouse lond 
protests, but foe Nature Con-

Gniinard as a catiire reserve.

Wide variations across foe 
country in examination per-

lios, and education costs are 
higitiighted to foe Chartered 
Institute of Public Fiziance 
and Accountancy figures pub-

The Inner London Educa-

in England and Wales. In

Brent and Haringey, and in 
urban areas Manchester, Shef- 
field, Newcastle and Coven- 
try. were leaders. 

The Ilea's 1984-85 speadh^ 
is high partly because of small 
class sizes m all foe high- 
spending areas. The poorer 
social btfk^unds of children 
in inner cities mean that

unfavourably with natirmaJ

most expensively educated 
primary chfidren in metropol- 
itan fostricts were in Sheffield

Sefton and SotihuU had

RSPCA urges registry 
of dogs to stop rabies 


The threat of ratoes could 
become endemic unless a 
computerized dog r^istration 
system was set up to control 
S)0,000 strays to Britain, the 
RSHTA said yestoday. 

In spile of improved liiea- 
sures by France, The Nether- 
lands and West Germaiiy to 
control stray dop, foe Gov- 
ernroeht seemed intent on 
ignoring warnings by propos- 
ing to abolish the dc^ Ucence, 
Mr Anelay Hart. RSPCA 
council dtairman, said. 

AMiuon of d<^ licences 
would have a disastrous efiect, 
opening foe way for more 
uncontroDed breeding to- 
cieased disease and animal 
cruelty. 


Mr Hart said: “The RSPCA 
will be emtaarldiig on a nu^ 
campaign in foe coming 
months to persuade the Gov- 
enunem to reverse ito decision 
on dog licences. They will find 
th^ have lit the fuse of a 
milch bigger controvert than 
the Sunday ttadhig fiasco." 

The Brhifo Veterinary As- 
sociation, the National 
Fanners* Union and many 
other organizations supported 
the RSPCA's campaign, he 
said. 

The society, whidi pub- 
lished its armiial report yester-

fees to be increased to between 
£5 and £10 a year.

Shipbuilding orders cannot 
be conjured out of thin air 


INDUSTRY 


Fuhher public sector shiptMild* 
ing orders could not be copjured • 
oui of thin air if there was no 
need for them, Mr hml 
rtmnnnn Secretary of State for 
Trade and Industry, said in the 
commons after making a state* 
mem reporting that British 
• Shipbuilders would have to 
make 3.S00 people redundant 

b>- March 1987 in order lo 
r^ucc its over*capacity. 

He was replying to calls by Mr 
John Smilii, cmef Opposition 
-spokesman on mde and in- 
dustry, ufio had called on the 
Govemmeni to set in> a special 
task force charged with the task 
of ensuring that Britisb Sbij^ 
builders would survive. 

He had contended that it was 
clear this year that British 
merchant shipbuilding would 
either survive or disappear and 
that on the evidence so the 
Government was indifietent to 
the result. 

Mr Channon argued that Mr 
Smith was misleading the 
House and the country if he 
imagined there was some pool 
of public sector orders which 
could be broi^ht forward early. 
That did not exist. This was a 
worldwide proUem. 

In his statemenL Mr Chaimoa 
said that British Shipbuilders 
won only 23.000 compensated 
gross tonnes of orders last year, 
iiitle more than a tenth of the 
amount forecast in their cor- 
>raie plan. This was not for 


reclamation programme in the 
North East r^on this year was 
already sul^mial but this 
would be increased by a further 
£1 million. It was also proposed 
to allocate an extra £2 million 
under the uAan progranmie. 
adding to the naoa's £35 
million programme Qiis year. 

The BS enterprise corporation 
would also ramte in Scotland 
where the Secretary of State 
would consider urgently addi- 
tional measures to help the areas 
affected by the redundancies 
announoetl 

The measures outlined would 
be in addition to the existing 
regional aid programmes 
indudi^ assistanee via Ea^ish 
Industrial Estates for which the 
areas concerned were already 
eligible. 

IVfr John SmMi, chief Oppo- 
sition ^oiresman on trade and 
industry, said there was deep 
anger throughout the shipbuild- 
ing industry. 

k be not ashamed to come 
and announce redundancies 
amounting to 3.500 people? 
Why did be not tell us about 
redundancies in particular ar- 
(Conservative prot^). 

The Tories may not fike it but 
they have lo listen to it. 

He gave detailed figures of 
redundancies and added: Why 


l^k of Govemmeni supporL 


The finandal support for 
individual orders was not the 
problem. T7>e problera was that 
orders were simply not there to 
be won. 

In Sweden, for example, 
which a few years ago had one of 
the most modem merchant 
shipbuilding industries in the 
world, the entire industry was 
closing down. This reflected the 
latest downturn in the ship- 
building mariceL which had 
resulted in cap^ty reductions 
and redundancies across the 
world. 

Despite Government support 
of more than £1.400 million 
since 1979 and the recent in- 
crease in the level of sunx>n for 
TMw orders, it had proved 
impossible for British Ship- 
builders to maintain its current 
capacity in the absence of new 
orders. 

British Shiifouildeis had ao- 
nounced that day measures to 
deal with this over-capacity. 
They tnduded a decision to 
dose by the end of the year. 
Smiths Dock, the Troon ship- 
yard of Feigusson-Ailsa, and the 
Wallsend site ofClaric Kincaid. 

In addition. BS had, as part of 
(heir wage negotiations, pro- 
posed a two-year deal which 
would seek to match manpower 
and capaci^ more closdy to 
demand. The Government 
regretted that these necessaey 
measures would lead to total 
redundandes of some 3,S(X} 
pcopfe by March 1987. BS 
hop^ that a substantial number 
of these would be achieved by 
voluntary redundancy. 

Mr Channoa announced that 
the Government proposed to 
provide to BS immediate su(h 
pon of up to £5 million in the 
current flruincia] year to enable 
them to set up a new subsidia^, 
British Shipbuilders Enterprise 
Ltd. This would provide expert 
and practical services for those 
fadng redundancy. 

h would ensure that they had 
at their work place counsellors 
with the skills and resources to 
guide them toward retraining 
and redepfoymeni opportu- 
nities. and to provide financial 
suppon to take advantage of 
those opportunities. It would 
also offer financial help and 
advice to those wishing to take 
the initiative of setting up their 
own businesses. 

In addition, the Secretary of 
State for Employment (Lord 
Young of Grafiham) had asked 
the Manpower Services 
Commission to provide a foiv 
ther £1 million specifically for 
the retraining of redundant 
employees of BS in direct 
operation with the new enter- 
prise corporation. He would 
also make available £1 million 
via the City Action Team for job 
creation measures and to stimu- 
late enterprise in the Nonh East. 

Also, the Secretary of State fcHr 
Environment (Mr Kenneth 
Baker) bad reviewed the derelict 
land redamation and urban 
programmes in the areas ai^ 
fected. At £13 million, the 



DnoB Connnimity grants wOl 
not save valoaUe skills 
was the mfomiation not given? 
Was he aahanied to pve the 
details? 

The collection of small items 
of money in a desperate pass- 
ihe-hat round of departments 
amounts to no more than a tiny 


piece of sticking plaster ovd* 
nds. It is a prttanoe 


gaping wounds, 
comftered to ibe tens of millions 
of pounds taken away in 
development giants in recent 
years. 

Tbe selling off of tbe naval 
yards was, as a former chairman 
had this morning declared, a 
national disgrace. 

Why had he not mtervened to 
make sure that British Nudear 
Fuels, in which die Govemment 
had a majmity shareholdicg. 
ordered its fifth carrier from 
British Shipbuilders,' instead of 
allowing h to « to Japan? 

Why had liir C2i^on not 
launched a piogrsmme of bring- 
ing forwaru pifolic seaor orders 
to make sure that ships which 
would need to be built one day 
were built now? 

He should leasxss jpa ck ages 
of support so diat British Sup- 
builders had as good a package 
of suppo^ as any other ship- 
buildm indnitry m the world. 
Mr ChannoK Mr Smith is 
wrong m ^most ^ the words of 
that qaestioo. 1 do not think that 
Britim shijplNifldii^ is on the 
verge of disappearing and h is 
important to tate steps to try to 
ke^ it going. Some ptwc 
sector ordm are expected soon. 

Those induded a fidi^ 
protection vessd, two ferries 
and a smaller ferry. 

Further pidilic sector orders 
(be said) cannot be conjured out 
of thin air. It is wrong and Mr 
Smith is misIcBding the House 
and the country if m imagines 
that there is some pool of puUic 
sector orders which are des- 
peraldy needed and which 
could be (nought forward. It 
does not exist 

He is ttiw mideading the 
House by suggesting that this is 
a British proUem. It is a 
woridwide problem. 

I gave fieures for tedtin- 
danaes and if the House wants 
details I can amplify them. I 
have told them of the unfortu- 
nate total of redundandes. 

Taken as a whole, subsidies 
match those available elsewhere 
and h is misleading to make 
comporisoiu betwm credit 
available widioot comparison of 
productitti subsidies. It ddes no 
good to misrepresent the state of 
aflairs. 

Mr NeriDe Trotter (Tyne- 
mouth, C) said tbe problem was 
caused by tbe calamitous state 


of the shipping industry world- 
wide. It was essential that 
Britain should amtinue to have 
a fundamental levd of ship- 
building capability. Researdt 
and d^dopm^ fecilities in 
Britidt Sbiplniiklefs must be 
maintained as tbe finure lay in 
particular in specialist v«ss^ 
MrOniiBOR said tie agre^ To 
give the impr^on that this was 
solely a mtish prottiem was 

Wbofiy wiicUaHipg. 

Mr Brace hduin (Glasgow, 
Govan. Lab) said the orders 
were there. Why did the Gov- 
erament not spend moon on 
helping Britain to get them? 

Mr Cbunoa said It was not just 
a question ofsubsidy. There was 
a demerate sh<Miaae of orders 
world^dc The United Kirig- 
dom was ofleiing exactly the 
same sort of credit as other 
countries. 

Mr Ian Wi^desworA (Stodc^ 
too Sooth, We are Semite 
the decimation oftbeshipbuila- 
ing industry of this country. If 
the problem is worid-wid^ why 
has tbe Govemment smoe emn- 
tog to office in 1979 doiu so iiitle 
to work with other govemments 
to world trade 

increase the demand for 
shipping? 

Mr Channoii: What be must 
fece up to is that this is not just a 
prtfolm of the shipbuiJdiiig 
industry in Britain but all over 
the wmld. There has been 
Government sufmort of £1,400 
million since 1979. If that is 
negle^ I would like to loiow 
what is not 

Mr James Thin (Redcar, Lab) 
said the measures that had been 
announced amounted to litde 
more than a contributiem to- 
wmik tite foneial enxnses of an 
important sector of tbe British 
shipbuilding industry. If reports 
that the Cubans were currently 
looldng for vessels were ooneci, 
would tbe minister see to it that 
British yar^ were aUe lo secure 
substantially more of those 
orders? 

Mr Channon: I understand and 
sympathize very much with 
wh^ he says. No Cuban orders 
have yet been won. Tbere are 
some n^tiations going oil If 
they were to be won that would 
be of great help. 

Mr Merchant (Newcastle 
upon Tyne CentraL C): This is 
not a matter which has been 
brought alMut by Government 
dereliction but is a result of a 
world crisis in shipbuilding 
which be has feced up to with 
positive measures. They will be 
widely welcomed in the North 
East. Would he consider 
appointing a Govemment min- 
ister to ovenee tbe way in which 
this money is sprat? 

Mr It is not for me to 

amxtint a Government minigw 
to do rhM , but we win have to 
devise effective means of trying 
to see that the money is sprat in 
the best way possitrie. 

Mr James Call^kia (Cardiff 
South and Penaiih, LabX Many 
of us believe that it is an an of 
national folly for an island 
which imports and exports 90 
ptf cent 01 its trade to allow its 
shipbuildiog industry to be al- 
most desirt^ed. 

Does tbe Government not 
believe that it is essential to' 


con^steotly by all sides of tbe 
House, and particularly ^ Sir 
Edward du Cann (Taunto^ O 
and myKlC 
Even at this late hour, will he 
and tite Goverrunefii take some 
of the measures othff coumries 
do to support their merchant 
na%*ies? 

Mr Channoa: I certainly take 
note of what he says and wffi 
discuss H with my colleagues. 
Mr Donald Dfama (Jarrow. 
Lab): Some 3.S00 highly sIdUed 
men will be going on the streets 
and a few comm unify grants will 
not save these %'aluaDle skills for 
this maritime aation. WiO be 
take notice of what the Govern 
mat has bea told since 1979 
about the decline in British 
shiptaiilding and come fowaid 
with something constructive? 
Mr riMMiwia- He should know 
that the problems feeing tbe 
industry are n« confinra 
Britain and many eounories aR 
over the world are taking steps 
like tills. It is foolish, misleading 
and unfair to say we can

in a way otiters have dol 
Mr IQaurd Holt {Layi ^u rgh, 
C): Today's announcement 
the culrninmion of years 
neglect and the lack of orders. 
The dMure of Smith's Dock in 
my coastititeQcy, together with 
the current higb iei«ls of un- 
emttioymenL will be much 
worse than anywhere else in the 
country. 

WiB be therefore take wfaa^ 
ever steps he can to see whether 
the £3 mtUioQ he hu announced 
is a limit f^ure or whether, once 
that has been used, fiuther 
m<mies will be made available? 
Mr Channoa; 1 understarvd his 
views. 1 hope that the money I 
have annnounced wiU be 
fident but of course we wiD 
k^ the matter coniinuaDy 
under review. 

Mr Edward Tayfor (Soutbrad 
East, O said as the shipbuiid 
indufliy was cyclical the fe 
ities should be preserved. It was 
just a bit sicK tiiat tbe total 
amount of cash for next year 
was equivalrai to wfaax was 
beirtg pmd ev^ four days in 
subsmising agriculture. 

Mr Channem: That may well be 
so, but tills is not so much a cash 
problem as an orders problem, 
liiere is a lack of orders for 
^ips and all the forecasts 1 have 
seen remain extremely gloomy 
for the industry for a very long 
time. 

Mr Nicbotas Brown (Newcastle 
upon Tyne East. Lab): Why has 
he felted to announce any 
support at all for the existing 
shimutilding industry? It would 
take four Kissans in the North 
Etm to make up for the shortfell 
of jobs announced today. 


preserve a, viable slupb ^d^ 


industry of considerable 
it is n ece ssar y to adopt a policy 
of scrap and build, as was doiK 



^ier, to meet the tOTy wary 


situation why not do 
Mr OteumR I understand and 
to some exirat diare his view. It 
is extremely important that we 
should have a merdiaot ship- 
buiklit^ indus^. The industry 
will survive. It is in a position to 
do so. I do not heliere that the 
scrap and boiJd process which 
he advocates has been a success, 
but we are considering every 
step that could be taken. 

Mr F^aiik Fldd (Birkenhead, 
Lab): The House will be per- 
plexed because of all the new 
uiiiaiives announced today not 
one of them vdll save sbipboUd- 
ing jobs. Does be aoe^ that 
merchant shipbuilding is at tbe 
point of collapse and what new 
measures does be intend to 
take? 

Mr Channoa: I do not accept it 
is on the verge of collapse. This 
is an extremely difficult situa- 
tion and that is why these 
measures have to be takert but 
there do lemaio further orders 
and I very mudi hope they will 
survive.

rapid decline of the British

MrChannon: He is being unfeir. 
There has been Government 
support of mme than £1.400 
million since 1979. Tbe problem 
now is a lack of orders ait over 
the workL 

Mr Robert Brown (Newcastle 
upon Tyne Nmth, Lab): It is not 
true to say there just are not any 
orders. The problem ties in tbe 
&CT that or more than 7,000 
tonnes wonh of orden last year 
tbe British industry only got 
1,000 tonnes. There has got to 
be a message ihm for the 
minister respoosibUe' for tbe

iD-minute rule procedure, to 
bring in a Bill to lefbrm tbe 
Suntey trading laws and pro- 
vide FXDiection for workers in 
tbe indusify'. 

He said there was a profound 
ne^ for change. Since tbe 1950 
Shops Act foioe bad been six 
attempis by private members is 
the House of Lords and 12 
attempts in tbe Commons and, 
most recently, tbe 
Government's own proposals 
for oompiete deicgulatiOD bad 
been rfyected by the House. 

His BUI would estabtisb a 
standing conference; indudsng 
representatives of all ioieresied 
parties, to consider tbe 1950 Act 
and recommend amendmenis 
to it or a new Shops Act- This 
would be a serious attempt to 
find oonsinictive proposals with 
comprehensive consultation. . 

It wns essential to show the 
nation that tbe House was 
prepared to continue to make all

recent mergers had been of Utde 
benefit to workers, customers pr 
the public imerest but bad bera 
largely to do with the s^- 
agpandxsement of those who 
owned the companies or those 
making the bids. 


Mr Channoa: I would be reluc- 
lam to make that change. I did 
not agree with most of what he

here and for craisistent policy.

of a receiver on November 3a

whether he should continue. 

Two miners, Mr Colin

40 groups

byGLC 

More than 40 voluntary 
oiranizations are to get £5.8 
mniioii, left to Aem by Ae 
Greater London Council on 
its last hectic working day 
before abolition. 

A High Court judge yester- 
day granted Wesiminsier Oty 
Council permission to drop its 
legal challenge to a selected 
group of spending decisions 
by Ae GL(T on March 

Mr Mark Lowe, counsel ibr 
Westminster, told Mr Justice 
Hodgson that Ae city council 
bad considered a batch of 
spending decisions, vrorA 
£18.5 million, to about 67 
oiganizations in London, in 
the light of Ae House of Lor^ 
judgement outlawing the 
G^s earlier plans to give ^6 
million to Ilea, voluntary 
groups and an arts centre. 

Westminster had concluded 
that £5.8 million fell mto a 
“lawfiir category. 

But it took the view that 
£5.6 million was unlaw^ and 
a further £7.] million in- 
volved decisions for whi^ 
necessary government consent 
had been refused. Those be- 
quests were, therefore, stil 
being challenged. 

On the day that it made the- 
sprading decisions. Ae GLC 
faid £17.6 million mto court, 
to be held penAng a ruling on 
whether the deasions were 
lawful.

Political fallout 
threatens Kohl 
election chances 

From Frank Johnson, Bonn 


ChanoeDor Kohl -resterday 
made strenuous efforts to 
show he is “doing something** 
abont foe effects of Chernolvl 
on West .(jennany, amid the 
growire bdief that h is the one 
issue tret could cost him the 
next general election. 

He made his first pro- 
nouncement on the issue to 
the Riiftdgaa g ^federal Parlia- 
mentX, emphafodng his per- 
sonal initiative to write to Mr 
Gorbachov proposing an in- 
lernational con&tenoe on nu- 
clear safety. 

Meanwhile. Herr Ignaz 
Kiedde, his Minister of Agri- 
relfoce, madeit known that he 
meet ibinistera H^tlxe 
Mnder (rcgiorel)’* govern- 
ments today to discuss what 
compensation could be given 
to formen whose produce, 
becanse of fears that it might 
be' contaminated by radiation, 
could not be sold. . 

Tire sudden activity has 
■followed fofs in which accu- 
sations' 'were made that Bonn 
■was doing nothing about foe 
effects of Chernobyl on the 
couniry. The dtsmnyuig thing 
for the GovenxBient isthat foe 
effects — or those that can be 
measured — appw to be 
.negligible. Radiation levels 
were b^ to normal last week. 

. 'll is foe fanners, however, 
who are causing the immedi- 
aie pefoti^ problem. The 
Christian Demooat (CDU) 
Government of Lower Saxony 
laces the polls on June 15, and 


fears that unless farmers are 
compensated they will ab- < 
stain, giving victory to the ! 
Soci^ Democrats (SPD). 

This would ^ive 
“momentum** to the reuonal 
SPD in the run-up to the 
general election — due within 
eight months — just when it 
was b ^'nning lO lOSe Sight Of 
returning to power as foe 
economy continued to 
improve. 

Compensation to the farm- 
ers was opposed by Herr 
Gerhard Sicdienberg. foe Min- 
ister of Finance, who insists 
that his austere policy on 
puUic..expendi(ujre is foe rea- 
soii.fiv the strong economy. 
He points with pride to fig- 
nres, issued last week, which i 
show that prices have actually , 
fallen this year, the first such 
fallfor27years. 

But Herr Ernst Albrecht, foe > 
Prime Minister of Lower Sax- 
ony, was reported to have* 
ban^ his fist and shouted 
when pleading with Herr 
Stolienberg this week for com- 
prasatiOD for the state's fani^ 
ers. 

Yesterday it ap p e a red that 
Herr Albrrcht and electoral 
consiiferations have won the 
ai]gument and that fauners 
will gel their money. 

Herr Stolteobeig had argued 
that, if foe farmers were 
compensate for CberoobyL 
other interest groupis would 
also warn compensation.

THE TIMES 


Socialists try to censure 
Chirac over guillotine 
attempt on disputed Bill 


The opposition Socialists 
yesterday tabled the first cen- 
sure motion, in response to 
the new French Government's 
attempt to use a parliamentary 
guillotine on a controversim 
enabling Bill giving it the 
power to I^siate ^ decree on 
a series of economic and social 
measures. 

The Socialists' move came 
after the aimouncemeni by M 
Jacques Chirac, the Prime 
Minister, on Tuesday ni^t 
that the Government bad 
decided to call a vote of 
confidence to put an end to 
the blocking tactics adopted 
by the left against the Bill. It 
h^ already been subject to 
more than 600 amendments 
and three weeks of debate. 

M Chirac's decision was 
prompted by the unexpected 
decision of the Socialists on 
Tuesday to table a further 
package of 20 amendments, 
despite having previously giv- 
en an unden^ng not to do 
so. 

The Government has set 
itself an extremely tight legis- 
lative timetable, and it be- 
came clear that it would hav’e 
to use the guillotine if the 
necessary* legislation were to 
go through Parliament before 
the summer recess. 

However, to outside observ- 


Ftom Diana Geddes, Paris 

ers it4ooks as if the Govern- 
ment has simply given to 

the mounting' pressure nom 
its own supporters to to get on 
with the implementation of its 
electoral promises. 

On Monday, the leadim 
right-wing newspaper. Le 
Fis^fO. caused a stir when it 
published a froni-^jage editori- 
al bv M Alain Peyrefitte, the 
paper's editor-in<hief and 
former ^uUist minister, in 
which he effectively called on 
the Government to stop drag- 
ging its feet in order to avoid 
succumbing to *^e tyranny of 
the status quo". 

M Jean-Marie Le Pen. lead- 
er ofthe extreme-dght Nation- 
al Front, voiced more, fiian 
just his own party's suspicions 
when be suggest that the 
requirements of maintaining a 
p^cefiii political "cohab- 
itation" with President 
Mitterrand bad forced ,M 
Chirac put a lot of socialist 

water into his liberal (right- 
wing) wine". 

M Chirac is naturally anx- 
ious to move ahead quickly, 
both in order to satisfy his 
critics and to get the 
Government's {KOgramme of 
liberalizing the economy 
rolling. ' 

But he feels that it wouM 
not be wise in a democratic 


country for the Government 
to be seen to be taking too 
much power into its own 
hands by ibrcii^ l^islalion 
through Pariiament, particu- 
larly when the Bill concerned 
is itself designed to give the 
Government additional pow- 
ers to by-pass PariiamepL 

FuitheraKMie, M Chirac 
knows that he will jHobably 
have to have recourse to the 
same guillotine procedure on 
the very next Bill to be 
present^ to Parliament. 

' The Beaoral Reform Bill 
which would repeal the Sociai- 
ist law on proportional repre- 
sentation and bring hack the 
old system of majority voting, 
is strongly contested by sever- 
al centrenright UDF deputies, 
who would stand to lose their 
scats under the old system, as 
well as by the National Front, 
the Socialists and the 
Communists. 

The Cabinet yesterday gave 
its approval to the Govern- 
ment to use Article 49-3 on the 
Eleaoral Reform Bill, which 
is due to be presented to 
Parliament next Tuesday. 

Not only does that proce- 
dure act as a guillotine, but it 
also enables the Government 
to avoid 'an embarrassing 
count of those opposed to it

How dever do you have to be to make 
your money work harder for you? 

QeverenougJitoknowthatlfearlyPIan 
does just that 

: The sirnpleinaths on the board show how eas 5 ^to- 
mdce monthly payments can grow into large lump sums.

tax-free. 

CURRENT RATE 


ys- 



The rate cunendy on offer is 8-19% pa tax-fiee over 
thefiveyears. 

The rate you will be offered is the rate current on the 
day we receive your application. It’s then fixed and 
guaranteed over five years, whatever happens to interest 
rates elsewhere. 

If you don’t want to accept the rate offered, just 
cancel your standing order: It’s that simple. 


CARRYING ON 




"Ybu needn’t stop your payments after 12 months. 
"’JCfe win write and tell you the guaranteed return on your 
next certificate. The plan will simply continue automati- 
cally if you want to cany on.

Ex-dictator’s asylmn plea 


Costa Rica rejects 
$1 billion offer 
to take Marcos 


Ftom Martoa Honey, San Josb 


President Oscar Arias of 
Costa Rica has refused to 


peditk^ a^Ium to 


linand Marcos, the de- 
posed Philippmes Strident, 
d^iie Mr Marcos's ofier to 
ave tbe Government $1 bfl- 
Don <£654 million) in return. 

In the first public statement 
to confirm the approadi Iqr 
Mr Marcos, the Presidenfs 
brother and Minister of the 
Presidency, Sefim' Rodrigo 
Arias, Dr Arias bad 

*'stnK|gte rgected" a petition 
for a^lum 'ibr reasons of 
nafinnai interest**, Ihe minis- 
ter made no mention of Mr 
Marcos's financial offer. 

A senim* pregdential advis- 
er said the asylum request was 
made recently by one of Mr 
Marcos's dau^ters, who ap- 
pealed on humanitarian 
gn^ds, saying her feiher was 
dying of cancer and was 
unlikely to live mne dian six 
months. 

The daughter travelled se- 
cretly to Costa Rica and first 
met the outgoing President 
Seor Luis Alberto Mongo. w 4 k> 
Urid her the decision would 
have to be made by Dr Arias. 
Tbe dau^ter then met an 
official of the incoming 
administration. 

She is said to have uM the 


offidal that her fett^ wk 
willing to deporit SI billion in 
Costa Rica's central bank in 
two instalments: one immedi- 
ately and tte other after he 
arrived and received pcditica] 
asylum. 

President Arias, who tcxds 
office last wedc, rnected tbe 
app^ because, aides say, be 
feared it would damage GcBta 
Rica's reputation as a demoo^ 
racy . 

He is said to have oonsid- 
er^ it impossible to accept 
the Si billion because it hM 
b^, in effect "stolen" frenn 
the niipino peofrie. 

Mr Marcos said recently m 
Hawaii that the US State 
Department and Preadent 
Re^n were making arrange- 
ments for him to travd to 
other countries, including 
Costa Rica, Panama and some 
Caribbean islands. A spokes- 
man for the US Embassy here 
called this "totally felse". 

But tbe aide to President 
Arias that tbe US did play 
a "v^ discreet" role in the 
negotiations. He said the US 
^vernment sent a cable to 
Costa Rica saying that it 
"would be pleased" if Mr 
Marcos were allowed "to visit 
other countries". The cable 
did not mention Costa Rica.

BIOGRAPHY 







The bid-back Brian Weahaoiraaeeiitiiigl^eflmtiessrbe towank the top 


^ The fate reserved for tus'&ther, 
hbwever. was not ftw hiin. It was a 
. ooo^ episo^ Wenham s^ 
ptnsed his drinldng and smdosg 
• habits mid toctic to visiting a gym 
twice a week, a ritual tiiat has 
continued to this day. But be doct 
consume Macmi witii some rehsh 
and' smokes - without inhaling • 
menacing la» cigars. 

The new job was head of the 
BBC emrent sibirs ^oup. The 
-"debate" ibis time centred on the 
■ Yataiday's Afm afbir. inus had 
-involved a.RMnevdiat ^tsitous 
'Cmdai^t on the Labour Party in 
•'Omiesition. which bad irked Har- 
: <4d B^son and Wliidi resulted in 
some embanrasied reshuffling by 
the BBC Wenham breezed in and 
stayed for seven years until 197g. 

.Again the Wenham style 
emc^Bed as a gradual, evolution- 
^ pressme m the lequiied diro> 
tion. Again "the debaie” was 
about thenature of news presenta- 
tion and he eased the corporation 
into a competitive posture witii- 
oia actually outrapng the tiad^ 


tionalists. it was in tiie midst of 
this {Bocess that the legend of 
Wennan's scheduling talents was 
bom. He had discovered a fed for 
the itiactng of ivogrammesaiid for 
the szretegic pointing of viewers in 
the right dir^on. 

it was this strategy sense 
that brought him to the job of 
controller of BBC2 in I97S. The 
chatmel was ticking over happily 
m its upmaricet niche but Qi^nd 
4 was OD the horizon and any 
weaknesses had to be remedied. 
The Wenham pressure was ap- 
plied - shre^er sdieduti^ 
emeiged and programcies were 
more elaborately plugged. The 
audience rose ftom around 8 per 
cent to about 12 and Wenham rose 
to become, in 1982, director of 
programmes, televtsion's number 
tMTO to Bin Cotton. 

The number two part was dear 
enough but the act^ job bad a 
sHgMy mysterious air. It was not 
easUy ooderetandable to non- 
broadcasters and, ftirtbermOTe, it 
had not exined prior to Wenbam's 


arrival Inevitably the rumours 
spread that it was a sinecure. 
Wenham, the smart current affoits 
operator with an upmarket pedi- 
gree, was bang shifted aside as 
showmen like Cotton and Michael 
Grade were given their head. 
Wenham might be a sharp sched- 
ule with low ratings stuff but the 
BBC threatened by an un^mipa- 
thetic Tory Government, was now 
all abom Dir^ Den, Tenry Wopn 
and the tabloid touch. 

In Act the job had a hisioty. It 
involved overseeing the produce 
tion of programmes once they had 
been commissioned and then 
handing them bade to the controL 
leis of I and 2 ready for transmis- 
sion. Wenham had become the 
siqnerne quality controner. It was 
an odd role for a man almost 
devoid of programme'inaking ex- 
perience. Yet he came to re^uti 
that as an advantage - it gave him, 
be says, a certain humility. 

In addition be ascend^ to the 
corporation's board of roanage- 
ment and, last year, was asked by

the direcior-gencfal to coordinate 
the BBCs response to the Peacock 
Inquiry. And finally, in Julv, he 
will take over radio, a job he yet 
again analyses in terms of a 
“debate" — this time over the role 
of radio in the 1990s ~ and aliout 
which he is happy to talk endlessly 
without actually expressing an 
opinion. He will, he says, work out 
the right position for the BBC once 
he has absorbed the whole busi- 
ness of radio — a medium he 
insists on calling, manneristically, 
the wireless. 

The point of the story is that 
Wenham has. by some uncon- 
scious. chameleon-like ability, be- 
come one with his environment 
He does not have the sort of 
violent love-hate relationship with 
the corporation that is so common 
among producers, nor has he 
become subservient to its para- 
noia and fluent seizures of 
internal politicking. Instead be has 
assimilated its entire nature and 
arrived at an enviable equilibrium 
in which the idea of a contradic- 
tion between what Wenham wants 
and what the corporation wants is 
all but unthinkable: 

T his explains his oddly 
emblematic quality - he 
seems to incorporate the 
whole puzzli^ edifice of 
the corporation with its 
frequently Kafka^ue responses 
and baffling combination of unity 
and chaos. 

And ft is, almost oerfainly. the 
secret of his seemingly efforUess 
success. For the age of broadcast- 
ing which has nurtured Wenham 
is not the same as the one that 
nurtured Reiih. The idea of a 
television and radio system held 
K^ether by a fieree moral vision 
has become meaningless. For one 
thing no such vision is sufficiently 
widely shared and. for another, 
brMdcasting itself has become too 
vast and complex, too interwoven 
with every aspect of life to be 
subjected to one central, contain- 
ing principle. Just as Wenham has 
become his environment, so 
broadcasting has become ours. 

As a result ibe nearest thing to a 
"philosophy" to which you can 
commit him is the view that the 
role of the controllers of airwaves 
should be that of anonymous 
enablers. Bland if you like, but 
that does not matter as long as the 
programmes themselves emerge 
with passion, commitment and

quality. It beg^ of course, a 
thousand questions about the 
nature of truth, of quality and so 
on. But for the relativist Wenham 
these errrezge tbrou^ the strange, 
intimate debates within the BBC, 
through his elliptical memos 
signed ill^bly BW. and through 
the conviction that there always 
exists somewhere a "right" pos- 
ture for the corporation to adopL 

.And, of course, h provides an 
entirely convincing, pragmatic ra- 
tionale' for preying the corpora- 
tion and kttping adveniring oul 
The place works, there is not 
enou^ advertising to support all 
the broadcasting that seems about 
to descend upon us so. if you want 
any public service broadcasting, 
why not stick with this? 

For the rest of the time he will 
allevnaie his anonymity with sys- 
tematic visits to the opera, con- 
certs and with frequent 
conscientious attempts to "keep 
up" with the modem novel, an 
ambition fed recently by his role 
as a Broker Prize judge. At home 
in Red Cottage, Wey Road, 
Weykidge there will be his wife 
Elisabeth and his two daughters 
Kate, 17, and Lucy-Jane, 19. 

In spite of bis widely pro- 
claimed literacy, he has done no 
more ihart edit one book. The 
ThinJ Age qf Broadcasting, and 
has no particular ambitions in that 
direction, nor can he imagine 
working for anvone other than the 
BBC. 

His office is neutral BBC, 
decorated with oddly unmemora- 
ble picture^ four small tdevirions 
and one big one, all switched on 
but mute and by now thickly 
scented with the smoke of the 
Wenham cigar. The man himself 
speaks from an almost supine 
position in an armchair, glancing 
occasionally at a protective press 
officer. The meeting ends by an 
unspoken consensus to the same 
"why arc we hereT* mood in 
which il began. 

Leaving the presence of ibis 
enigma I encounter Alan Yemob, 
the head of music and arts, about 
to go in. "Say something nasty 
about Wenham", I urge. "Why? I 
like the guy", Yemob calls back 
over his shoulder as he ambles in 
for his glass of Macon and a dose 
of gentle pressure.

But assuming the Swan gets 
its audiences,, is there not a 
danger that attendances at 
either The Other Place or the 
main Stratford theatre or both 
will correspondingly fall? Mr 
Hariock and his colleagues 
have been eneigetically devis- 
ing ways to increase the sum 
total of theatre-going to avoid 
this. Their various Stratford 
packages have been adjusted 
to accommodate visits to the 
Swan. Veritable orgies of th^ 
aire-going have bora laid on 
offering a matinre at one 
theatre and an evening session 
at another with three-course 
meals in between. 

The Swan, says Mr Hariock. 
may attract in addition its 
own audience, pei^ps one 
accustomed to sitting in a 
single room in proximity to 
the performers. 

The Swan’s season was 
initially projected as ninning 
from April to October, leaving . 
the winter free for concerts '

In his introduction dated the 
ver>' day the Duchess of 
. Windsor died. Michael Bloch 
states that it was the Duchess’s 
wash that . these . letters be 
published. He continues: “She 
was determined that, at the 
right moment, the truth 
should be known to foe world 
in the form of foe authentic 
comempoiary record.” Mr 
Bloch goes on to say that when 
the Duchess fell seriously ill in 
1975 it was Maitre Blum who 
gave effect to her instructions. 

I do not believo that foe 
Duchess of Windsor's cause 
has been well served by 
foe publication of these letters. 
At the time of the Duke’s 
funeral. Prince Philip and 
Lord Mountbatten asl^ the 
Duchess about her plans for 
foe Duke’s papers. She agreed 
that they should go to foe 
Royal Ardiives, and later in 
1972 the Librarian came over 
to Paris to take them to 
Windsor. The Duchess's Pri- 
vate Secretary, the late John 
Utter, found some letters 
tween foe Duke and Duchess 
and drew these to her atten- 
tion. He suggested that she 
should decide if she wanted to 
I keep them or send them to 
I Windsor. But the Duchess was 
i not up to foe effort and she 
never looked through them. 
By April 1978 the Duchess 
was very ill; foe two private 
secretaries had been dis- 
missed; and Maitre Blum 
controlled her affairs. In foe 
. autumn of that year foe

Love letters are usually best 
left unpublished because their 
intimate tone tends to be 
embarrassing to outside read- 
ers. In this case the justifica- 
tion for their publication is 


that she “exercised a great 
fascination on lesbians”: and 
later quoting the contempo- 
rary belief that she was “be- 
witching the Prince with some 
kind of sexual sorcery.” Other 


that they refer to affairs of authors have incurr^ Maitre 
slate and particularly to the Blum's wrath for making such 


.Abdication. The Duke and 
Duchess both published their 
memoirs years ago. which was 
surely their chance to set the 


suggestions. W'hat does 
emerge is the Duchess of 
Windsor’s absorption in her 
own status, first as an ac- 


quaintance of the Prince of 
V/ales, then as the King's 
confidante. We learn that she 
liked to see the American 
press cuttings, good or bad. 
and that she did mind about 
not being an HRH. Her 
comment (on page 25Sl con- 
cerning the King's Proctor 
finding a case against her 
divorce: “Frankly 1 don't 
think he will find one,*' strikes 
me as revealing. However, she 
is wrong to suggest that Lord 
Duchamp lost his Garter 
when he was sent abroad in 
1931. 

Mr Bloch tells us the story 
of Newbold Noyes, who inter- 
viewed the Duchess for a 
discreet and restricted profile 
of her. Bloch says: “When the 
.Abdication came, however, it 
was too much for Noyes to 
respect these confidences and 
miss the chance of a scoop that 
lay in his grasp.” I have the 
feeling that with these letters 
history has repeated itself.

There is, as you would 
expect, much bleak humour in 
this book.. There is foe Essex 
school evacuation plan during 
the last war. which involved 
children sailing down the 
Thames and out into the 
North Sea. This was done. 
Incredibly, all survived. 

Bui even more bizarre is foe 
matter of the two schools. 
Johnson was foe head of a 
secondary modern at Aveley, 
a sturdy brick structure built 
in 1939. and standing in IS 
acres of playing-fields. The 
local authority jilanned a 
grammar school just a mile 
and a half away; but then, at 
the last minute, changed its 
mind, and the school became 
a secondary modern. But what 
were they to do with foe 
children, staff, and builfong at 
Aveley? At first it was thought 
that the children would trans- 
it, and the staff apply for 
jobs. The teaching unions 
stopped that So they were left 
with an empty, brand-new 
school, costing £250.000. 
Vt'hat happened next, and the 
way the school got given away, 
is the best thing in this 
autobiography. 

When Johnson last saw his 
' old schooLit was being bougju

Although Oxford provides 
the starting point for the 
discussions in The Graduates, 
the talk soon moves to an 
examination of the life and 
work of die specimens. Some- 
times this is understandable, 
for. as they are the first to 
admit. Oxford played a small 
part in their education. Mrs 
Gandhi told the author **I was 
at Somerville for only a year, 
and I am afraid even then my 
thoughts were far from

If there is a kiiKdora of the blind, then Ved 
Mehta is both its chronicler and its revolu- 
liona^. There is a {Aotograph of him 
standing whh Pandit Nehru, many years ago, 
and one’s attention is immediately drawn to 
the rather than to the leader — and to that 

combination of fastidiousness and ferocity 
imprinted upon his fece. We do not need to 
see his eyes to understand that here is a child 
of extraordinary character; aixl, at the age of 
14. he wrote that, “1 am the sort of person 
who would like not even one person to feel 
that I should have been sighted, as 1 do not 
feel that myself. 1 think that I am better off 
than others.** Periiaps this was «4usUing in 
the dark, but the single most impmtant 
quality of the young Ved Mehta was his 
courage: Sound-Shadows qf the New World is 
a record of that couia^ 

This is the third volume of his autobiogra- 
phy, a sequence that began with as account of 
how at the age of five he was placed in an Indi- 
an orirfianage for the blind (he had lost his

SOUND-SHADOWS OF 
THE NEW WORLD 
By Ved Mehta 
Coilins. £15 


from India to the United States in order to atp 
tend the Aikansas School for the Blind in 
Little Rock; it ends with his graduation from 
the instiiution. Almost 35 years have passed 
since that occasion, and yet Ved Mehta 
recorts his life throughout the period in 
extraordinary detail; it is as if his fell into 
blindness had broken open his perception so 
that nothing escapes him, and his account has 
a clarity that is sometimes like clairvoyance. 

His first years at the Aikansas school were 
filled with confurion and fearfulness: “All I 
do is lead and think and worry,** he wrote in 
the journal that be kept at the time. And later 
“Today we learned the words to *Skip to 
Maloo*. What is 'Maloo*? Must somehow find 
out discreetly.** He writes so naturally that it 
is ea^ to forget that these were the words of a 
boy who could see nothhig and no one, who 
had travelled alone to an ^en contineni and 
who was quite unsure about his future. Whim 
he was aslred to define the meaning of life, in a 
school exercise, he replied with the wis^m of 
a child who has already been marked by 
suffering: “Struggling for existence,** is what 
he wrote. 


darker to this blind child than the outer 
worid, it was his own painful introspection; 
and yet it was through this haunting 
confusion that the character of Ved Mehta 
was formed. To the outside world he seemed 
alert, disciplined, and selfkonfident; but he 
was filled with self-doubt, and even on 
occasions self-hatred, wbidt he had to labour 
hard to overcome. 

By the end of this book he is at least 
successful within the narrow confines of his 
school; he becomes president of the student 
senate, and he plays in the school band. And 
>-et he refuses to accept the limited roles in 
which his blind contemporaries seem to 
acquiesce. His real companions are the radio 
and the tape-recorder that be sets up in an 
empty broom closet: these are his links with 
the greater worid, in udiich be wishes to exed, 
and as a result they became “my American 
family that no one knows about'* He 
transcribed the words of Ed Murrow in order 
to understand the world; he started a 
correspondence-course available only on the 
radio. As a record of self-reliance and 
tenacity. Sound-Shadows cf the New World is 
extraortinarily moving; but as an account of 
one boy's ambition, it is equally remarkable. 


A nd at the same time he was always 
aware of the separateness that he 
carried everywhere with him “like a 
burden** — he was not just separated 
from the sifted world and from a bewilder- 
ii^ America, but he was estranged even from 
his blind contemporaries because of his race 
and culture. “I wondered how I was,** he 
writes, “how much I looked like a Negro, and 
what my kinship with the N^ro really was ...** 
Such a sense of isolation is a terrible weight 
for any child to bear, but it prompted him to 
cry out, even if it was only to himselfr it was 
precisely this solitude that led him towards 
his destiny as a writer. If there was one place 


I t is urttien v^ directly, almost conver- 
sationally. It is as if the natural barrier of 
his disability used once to be so great tiiat 
he does not wish to erect any other 
barriers of his own. As a result he sees the 
world very cleariy; he describes it so carefully, 
and yet from such an o^ue angle, that in 
pans it is rather like reading some compelling 
travelogue of an unknown country. It comes 
as something of a shodc, then, to realize that 
its inhabitants are ourselves. But if America 
was once for him a place of “hiss and rush**, 
by the strange aicbmy of his isolation and 
ambition he comes to identify both with its 
energy and with its oiMimism; the “new 
world** is. literally, his own new world also. 

“We don't gve a damn about being blin^** 
the children of the school used to say to each 
other, “but to be blind among people who 
have eyes, that's vriiat's bell!** V^ Mehta has 
proved that this is not necessarily the case, 
that it is possible to exorcize diose of 
beiira unwanted or unloved that so afflicted 
his mends in Arkansas. Thomas Chanerton, 
when be was about the same asi as V^ 
Mehta here, wrote that “God has sent his 
creatures into the worid with arms long 
enough to reach anything if they choose to be 
at the trouble to seek IL^ In ^uiul-Shaifows 
of the New WoridNoA Mehta provides all the 
evidence that anyone would need to sunxxt 
that large daim. He has come through. He 
writes here without rancour or self-pity, 
bringing news of the darkness which be bu 
craquoed. 


“You know, during the Civil 
Rights period of the 50s and 


60s they used to call us The 
city that was too bu^ to haie*^ 
Well that same spirit of ento'- 
prise lives on today.** With 
these words Mayor Andrew 
Ycmng finished a television 
interview- 1 . conducted with 
him in 1982. It was a strange 
statement bearing in mind 
titat 28 people — all children, 
all black — had been murdered 
in Atlanta during a 22-monlh 
reign of tenor from 1979 lo 
1981.' I have since kicked

Baldwin's new book hoping 
that be mi^t clari^ some of

Young's words. 

James Baldwin uses what 
became known as the “Atlanta 
Murders" as a point of depar- 
ture for bis latest extenided

’ As the essay unfolds, Bal- 
dwin dwells upon sul^ecls as 
diverse as demographic pat- 
terns of development in New 
Yoik City, exploitation of 
black labour in South Afiica, 
Judaeo-Cbristian ethics — 
with reference to the treat- 
ment of Jews and homosexr 
uals in pre-war Germany, 
Mann's Dktth in Venice, and 
many othern topics, somehow 
managing to reiate them tads 
to the subject at the centre of 
his brief: Atlanta. At times he 
does so brilliantly, at other 
times the digression is distuib- 
ing, suggesting that either two 
or three books are struggling 
to inhabit the one; or perhaps 


he is simply frustrate with 
il theme. 


thecemral 
After aU. the “Atlanta 


Murders" have now been 
conveniently forgotten. Bal- 
dwin continually reminds us 
that the accused, Wayne Wil- 
liams, was tried for only two 
of the 28 murders; was (in 
Baldwin's opinion) probably 
innocent; and that 26 murders 
remain unsolved. The anguish 
of the victims* parents re- 
volved around the awful offi- 
cial indifference to the 
murders. It would aj^iear that 
the city that is too busy to hate 
is also too busy (o investi^te. 
But Baldwin is not a detective; 
be cannot tell us who cCHnmit- 
ted the murders, he cannot 
even explain to us, in factual 
terms, why he thinks Wayne 
Williams did not commit the 
two murders he has been 
convicted o£ As an investiga- 
tion of the Atlanta Murdm 
the book is as inconclusive as 
the case, as ambiguous as 
Andrew Youth’s statement. 

As an addition to Baldwin's 
woik it is welcome. His prose 
style, both incantatory and 
intelleciually muscular. Is as 
rich as ever. His candour and 
repetitive biblical patter rattle 
us with a cumulative author- 
ity. He b^ns one section 
wit^ “I was bom in 1924..." 
This book may be the closest 
we will have to a Baldwin 
autobiography, and long after 
the events of .Atlanta have 
been buried, the book will still 
be read. As in Baldwin's other 
essays, in particular The Fire 
Ne.xt Time and No Name In 
The Street, the quality of his 
writing, and the courage of bis 
insights will make his work 
live.

Much of the story follows 
what history is known. But 
Sharon Penman seems almost 
as much in love with rjewelym 
as Joanna is — a man of this

women — so turning a histori-

— obviously an aeddent, they 
dedde. But. as in Mrs 
Dunnett's complex and so- 
phisticated plots, nothing is 
quite what it seems to be — 
and then some. 

This long and absorbing 
novel chronicles the progress 
of the outcast Claes from 
apprentice and down to man 
of affairs, international carrier 
of information, and. finally, 
husband to the widow 
Oiaretty. She is twice his age, 
but suggests the marriage to 
him. as a way of gaining the 
status he can never achieve on 
his own. From Claes, his 
nickname, to Niccold, as his 
Italian assodates call him. is a 
giant step. But who Is he, and 


what are his parent^ and 
origins? Fans of Mrs Dunnett 
will know that we will be 
happily pursuing these mys- 
teries over a series of novels 
coxoring the making of for- 
tunes from Bruges to Constan- 
tinople for some time to come. 

Sharon Penman has good

The Sunne in Splendour is

She tips her unwanted partner

away, shouting accusations. “I 
have no kfea what ^'s

ing to do with me," says 
C3iloe. Bein^ beautify and 
lalen^ she is believed. 

This brutal oijening scene 
marks the arrival ofa formida- 
ble new novelist It is a 
measure of Sharon Sparling's 
skill that this reader at least 
accepted the transformation 
of Chioe Delaney from ogress 


about what to take with her. 
She embarks on an inventory 
of her possessions, with pre- 
dictable results. Memories 
crowd in, and events of a hrif- 
centu^' earlier jostle for her 
attention with a brood of 
lively grandchildren. 

In other hands, it might 
easily have d^nerated into 


nostalgia or worse. Miss 
Moore however writes with 
irony and without malice. 
People past and present are 
jutted on their merits, as are 
events. So Moving House 
IMe^nts a lyrical rather than 
elegiac portrait of English 
counoy life throughout the 

century. 

Jill Delay offers us an 
equally rich though less allur- 
ing picture of later life. 
Lorenzo D'Ayala, only son of 
a rich Sicilian and his English 
wife, has led an honouraitie 
life of privilege. Personal- 

ly festidious. he married a 
woman who had little interest 
in his refined tastes or his 
■woik at the Palermo Institute 
of Fine Arts. Her death repre- 
sents domestic inconvenience 
rather than emotional loss, 
unlit his job too disappears. 
What follows is remarkable. 
So is The Gentle Tourist.

ly of flashbacks which explmn 
why she is there. 

The story of Chloe's devel- 
opment from precocious ten- 
year-old to international 
artiste is told in terms of her 
personal rather than profes- 
sional life. The two are closely 
linked by the faa that her 
lovers tend to be connected 
with the music world — except 
for Laurence, the father of her 
child, whose indifference to 
her talent can hardly be ex^ 
cused by tonedeafness (an 
uncharacteristically clumsy 
bit of symbolism). But Chioe 
is far more interested in her 
adopted relatives, and it is 
these relationships which 
make The Glass Mountain 
comjMilsive reading. It is also 
beautifuny written and unusu- 
ally well-constnicted. I shall 
be suriMised if a better first 
novel comes my way this year. 

Similar observations were 
made two years ago about 
Katharine Moore's ' Summer

that case was stuupened 1^ the 
fact that Miss Moore was 
quhe, well mature for a 
liters debutante - 85, to be 
precise. Three books — and

THE TIMES 
DIARY 


Touting 
for Tutu 

Bi^op Desmond Tutu will be in 
this coumiy next week to viat 
fellow membeis of the Anglican 
Churdi in South Wales. Thou^ 
the visit has been kept quiet, 
members of the Forei^ Amirs 
Committee have got wind of it* 
and have been msently trying to 
reach him in the bom that he will 
appear before them for talks about 
the turmoil in South Afiica. But 
the turbulent priest, winner of the 
Nobei Peace Prize in 1984, has 
been on the move and is now 
somewhere in Europe. The 
committee is particul^y aiudous 
to speak to him as it has been 
looking into the South Airican 
crisis and taking evidence fix>m 
visiting white politicians and 
Mack resistance leaders, among 
them the former leader of the 
opposition I^ogressive Federal 
F^ny, Frederik Van Zyl Slabbert, 
and the ANC president Oliver 
Tambo. A question posed by one 
ANC official seems to deserve an 
answen if the committee can find 
time to visit the Soviet Union and 
South-East Aria, as it has done 
recently, why does it not go and 
see for itself what things are like in 
Alan Paton's “Beloved Country." 

Meltdown 

In the past 18 years it would seem 
tmt Tony Benn has changed his 
tune even more drastically than he 
has his name. Benn and Eric 
Hcffer have caused a rifl in the 
Labour party over the future of 
nudear pon%r by declaring h a 
“technology that humanity cannot 
handle." and one that should be 
phased oul Many will remember 
Anthony Wedgwood-Benn's tri- 
umphant speech in May 1968 
nben. as Minister of Technolc^. 
he said: “There is no question 
that when history comes to be 
written, the achievement of nu- 
clear powCT will turn out to be one 
of the major technologicai devel- 
opments of the second half of the 
20ih century." Not so much a U- 
tum as an N-ium. 


Verdant 


John Pahpa. the Environment 
Minister,* might turn a trifle red 
when his covert greenness is 
revealed in his latest book. The 
Penmin Guide to the Landscape of 
En^and and Wales. It was 
commisrioned some 14.years ago 
wben Patten was still a fdlow of 
Hertford College, Oxford, and 
more conservation-minded than 
might be considered politic in his 
present job. “The book is de6- 
nitely grren in hue." he says. “It is 
just a quirk of fote that it is being 
publisnra so soon after 1 was 
moved to the DoE" 

McMaggies 

Harvey Thomas and the image 
makers at the Scottish Tory 
conference in I^rth seem deter- 
mined to train up a breed of tartan 
Thatcher clones. Speakers are 
advised: “If you want to 

emphasise some point of particu- 
lar importance, it is more riRecdve 
to sp^ more slowly and more 
softly. Make good use of pauses."

Richer dust-up 

Plans to commemorate Rupert 
Brooke's centenary with a statue 
of a woman — possibly naked >-> 
have been dn^ped by the bur- 
ghers of Ru^ after a barrage of 
criticism. Midland sculptor John 
Bridgeman bad suggested that an 
allegorical female 6giue would 
best reinesent the spirit of 
Brooke's jpoetry. but die idea 
provoked jibes d^ one of Ru^ 
ScfaooPs most distinguished old 
boys would be depicted in dr^ 
The Ru^iert Brooke Centenary 
Association asked another sculi> 
tor. Ivor Robertsdones. to submit 
alternative idans, which won the 
day. Bridgeman told me: “I'm a 
bit peeved I am an old chap 
likes women. That's unusual these 
days when most people in the ait 
world seem to prefer girders. ” He 
was somewhat moUHiM by the gift 
of a botde of sherry fhira a Ru^ 
master. Roberts-Jooes will get 
nothing until the association 
raises the cash. 


No go for British knowhow 

by Paddy Ashdown 


Ronald Butt 


Bung-ho 


Bristol's world-fomous wine &ir 
has su^red a serious blow. Hav- 
ing supported the foir ever since it 
started ei^i years agO; Harvey's, 
the equ^y ramous Bristol com- 
pany, will not be exhibiting this 
year, claiming that the cost is not 
justified by the return. Another of 
the city’s main purveyors of dr ink , 
Avery's, has aim decided to pii^ 
out. If the grapevine yields yet 
more withdrawals, the £ur will 
never be the same again. 

PHS 


Last month ironically on St Geoise's 
Day — the United Stata began to 
impose laws and regulations controlling 
Bnush hi^ t^noiQ^ exports, which 
will greatly damag g Bntish companies. 

The Americans claim that the mea- 
sures are necessary to protect western 
' hi^-technoiogy against transfer 
to the Eastern bloc. But the American 
action undermines the existing system 
governing technology transfer — the 
Cocom regulations — which was orig- 
inally agreed by the US government and 
all Nato allies. The regulations have 
been e^orc^ after years of argument 
among US government lawyers over the 
merits of the issue; procrastination 
which had already damaged British 
technology companies. 

Within the last mont^ academic 
researchers at London University have 
been leftised a veiy laige computer 
unless all its academic users — who are 
scattered throughout Britain — agree 
not to communicate the results of any 
work done on the machine to any 
person from any one of a list of 19 
countries. 

Some of these countries are com- 


munist and some are in dispute with the 
United States. If the computer scientists 
get the machine, ^ accepting the 
restrictions that go with it, they will cut 
themselves off TOin some of the most 
important research in the worid. 
The United Slates government proposes 
to control communications, for in- 
stance, between scientists in Britain and 
Sweden, Switzerland and — of ail 
places — Hong. Kong. 

These new US export regulations will 
be a heavy blow to ^tain because more 
than 70 per cent of the computer 
industry in this country is controlled, 
directly or indirectly, by American 
corporations, and wmdi tiie United 
States, in defiance of international law, 
deems to be uruler US jurisdiction. 

Digital £>quipment UK, the Readixig- 
based subsidiary of ibo second largest 
computer corporation in the world, has 


agreed to controls on the mo^ment of jurisdiction and are contrary to inter- 
**hardware, software a/id htow-houP* national law.** You might ask what the 


(my emphasis). In other words, tbe new 
law has fri^tened at least this company 
into accepting, not only restrictions on 
things wftich we can see and touch, but 
oonti^ oyer ideas.

Richard Ford assesses the six months of discordant accord 


HDlsboroiigli 

Advertisements have appeared in 
Nortbem Ireland newqi^iefs this 
past week uiging Orange tmthren 
to converge on this most Englisb- 
looldng of villages for a raUy 
protesting against the Anglo-Irish 
agreement Tonight six months to 
the day that Mrs Thatcher and Dr 
Garret Fjc^jerald signed tbe 
agrement in the drawing room of 
' Hillsboroi^ Castle, foousands 
are expected to demonstrate in the 
village square. 

In th^ regalia, and bdiind 
bands and bann^ they will 
proclaim their unity, Protestant 
heritage, inalienable ri^l to r^ 
main part of the United Kingdom 
and fervent opposition to a dmd 
giving a consultative role in 
Northern Ireland to tbe “auld 
enemy" in Dublin. The feet that 
the lisyal Orange Institution of 
Irriand and the Grand Oran^ 
Lod^ called the rally is a taat 
admission of their feilure so fer 
toovertum the agreement widely 
opposed though it is throu^iout 
the Unionist community. 

Aware of the danger of scoring 
yel another own goat the or- 
ganizers are anxious to avoid any 
disturbances. By saying, quaintly, 
that “only Oi^ge brediren m 
good stanmng may attend" and 
that only bands en^iged by district 
lodges may take pan, they h<^ to 
keep away the raucous “kidt tte 
Pope" element — often drunk on 
ddn* or a brand of lager brewed in 
the bated Republic. 

It is likely to be an impressive 
demonstration but behind the 
flags and bunting, there is division 
and doubt in the Unionist ranks 
over the future. Divisions also 
occur in the highest edidons of 
the Northern Ireland Ctffice, 
where Tom King, the Secreia^ of 
State, is bombarded with oonmet- 
ing advke on the policy to adopt 
towards tbe Unionists; this siHits 
roughly into “softly, softly” and 
“kids them bard". Amc^ the 
nationalists doubt remains about 
whether a British government, 
even one led by Mrs Tliatdier, wili 
stand firmly the agreement and 
when it will p^uce results. 

Since the agreement was signed 
Northern Ireland has witnessed 
little of the “peace and stability” it 
was intended to bring. Although 
only 26 people have died com- 
part with 36 in the comparable 
poiod of 1 984-8S, there has been a 
big increase in the number of 
sectarian attacks and recent his- 
tory suggests that tbii^ will get 
worse as the marching season 
moves into its full, defiant stride. 
Last month alone there were 79 
sectarian attacks do Roman 
Catholics, many of them against 
femilies living in mixed areas, 
others on schools and Purdies. 

Since the first Protestant was 
killed by a plastic buflet, as ix>lice 
quelled an anti-Hillsboroi^ riot 
at Portadown on March 3, Union- 
ists have added tbe RUC to their 
hate list There have bceen 361 
reported cases of intimidation of 
police officers and their femilies, 
and 62 have been forced to leave 
dieir homes. Extra tnx^ have 
been flown into the province. 

Throughout the six months tbe 
Provisional IRA has kept up its 
attacks, increasingly on the soft^ 
oftai]^ts:off-du^miembers<rf‘the ' 
security forces in border areas. 
Much has been heard of improved .

indicated that he eiqiects decisions

their potential for devdojnng into 
larger scale rioting. After all, as 
some Protestants say. why should 
tii^ abandon violence and 
intimidation — or at least the 
tiiiat — when h has worked effeo* 
lively during previous crises? 

Given tbe latest feilure of efforts 
to b^u talks about talks with 
Unionist letors, the government 
now has little option but to 
weather a steraiy nmrehing season 
with all that means for mcr»ed 
pressure on the RUC and the 
image of a iMovince deqwrately 
attempting to attract investment 
at a time when unemployment is 
over2i percent 

Some militant loyalists believe 
tb^ cause now gets attention on 
the mainland ody by street vi- 
olence and that this -mh increase 
pressure on a government already 
in difficulty over other aqiects m 
its polides. Tbe danger is that the 
Unionists will lose even mote of 
the few friends they still have on 
the mainland and that exaspera- 
tion with the Northern Irdand 
problem will turn to demands for 
a decisive severi^ of the link. 

virile Unionists remain o^ 
posed to an institntionalized rto 


for LhiUin in tbe a£feirs of the 
N<k^ they are iDcreasic^y split 
on the tactics they should follow to 
defeat it and on an ultimate 
ot^ective. An opinion poD earlier 
tins year sbow^ 23 per cent in 
fevour of complete miration 
with Britain, 24 per cent wanted 
devolved govrnnment with power 
diarii^ 11 pv cent delved 
govenunent with m^ority rule 
and 9.6 jier cent continued direct 
rule from Westminster. 

Although Mrs Thatdier told a 
delation of Unionist assembly 
members that integration wiu not 
an (^ 00 , and runs counter to tbe 
wfa<^ thrust of the agreemoit, 
feading OUP figures insist that it 
IS the way to maintain the Union. 
They ague that devolution 
involving an administration run 
on a parteership basis with 
nationalists is a kmg-term jifoy to 
break the Union. 

Other Unionists argue that 
integration means putting your 
trust in a Westminster ^ern- 
ment and partiameDt that, six- 
months ago betraj^ them and is 
setting up Unionism ft>r further 
defeats in tiw ftimre. They also say 
it avoids confiontipg the issue m 
comii% to terms whb the Roman 
Catholic minoto hi the province 
and deludes Unionists into bdiev- 
ing they are still in an ascendancy. 

Even if this debate resolves 
itself over the next few months so 
that both wings of ■ Unionism 
could' enter talks with a cobetot 
strategy for the future the prospect 
would still look Weak. Some 
Uiemisis remain temp(ed..by tiW' 
argument that, with a g»e^ 
electioD approaching in Britain, 


in nipst attempts to get political ' 
•movement, ami his advisers 
are invdvWl in a delicate batano- 
ing 'acjU with the risk of any 
concessioD to either side antag- 
onmng the other. 


Because of the reguladofei, Brittsfa 
exports of -..tedmology, . .otker than 
intercompany transfers, are in decline. 
A exporter now needs two 

licences — one from -Whitehall and one 
from tbe United States — to sell 
thing outside the country. But im 
American company can export directiy 
from the United States under a general 
licence and without an)[ need to mate 
any individual application at alL The 
US regulations are clearly being used to 
give American companies a trading 
advanta^ by jdacing intolerable restzic*

Moscow 

Like a stunned prize fifeter, down 
but not yet out. the Kremlin is 
making strenuous efforts to le- 
TOvw from the errors over its' 
initial handling of tbe Cheraolvf 
disaster wftich have caused untold 
damage to the new image beii» 
assiduously cultivated by Mikhail 
Gorbachov. 

The most significant was 
Gorbachov's decision to ni ght to 
end 18 <feys of deafening and iil- 
jud^sd silerice by addressing the 
nation on television, his first such 
speech since the scarcely remem- 
bered call on March 29 for a 
meeting with President to 
negotiate a test ban treaty. 

Western observers have no 
doubt that the move was taken as 
much to still nimUinp of dis- 
content at home — particulariy in 
the Ukraine — as to re-establish 
his credibili^ with tnteniational 
public ojHnion, particulariy the 
left-wing anti-nuclear movements 
in western Europe. 

As with so many asp^ of 
Soviet life, tbe domestic dis- 
content with Gorbad)ov*s reti- 
cence over Chernobyl was often 
expressed, only obliquely Bnt re- 


ports readung Moscow from 
Kiev, still prohibited territory to 
all western diplomats and news- 
men. that anger there is 
sometimes open. Tbe authorities 
are criticliz^ for pubtishing 
alarmist health warnings only 
days ato initial assurances about 
the absence of any radiation threat 
from ChmobyL 
Tbe aufeorities tried to dis- 
cr^ accounts of the mountiim . 
sense of panic in Kiev but could 
not do anything about the thou- 
sands ofpeople neeing to Moscow. 

The fto signs of a change in 
Moscow's approach occurred in 
foe week after the beiaied visit to 
the disaster rene on May 2bftm 
senior Politburo membe^ “There 
is no doubt that feey-. «m 
appalled with what they fouiid, 
especially to complete, feilure to. 
evacuate over 40.0(X) people <fi- 
rectfy threatened by radioact- 
ivity," one envoy said. “It .was 
only then feat it began to dawn on 
Moscow just how wrong tilings 
were going." ' . . ^ 

It was after that' .viat timt 
Moscow began slowly to, lift its. 
news dampdown; an evOT.in cri^ 
ing drip of mforntation apppeared. 


in the officiai media about to 
Ireroic operation to contain the 
fire and prevent a meltdown. But 
there was no reference to to long- 
term effects of radiation on sudi a 
scale, confirm ing the view that fee 
Kremlin's chief motive was to 
avoid panic at any cosl 

Every effort bu. been made to 
blame local officials in fee 
Ukraine. Official reports accuse 
item of incompetence and under- 
estimating the dangers; a^mriing

this suggests that Gortacbov 
mightily to tuna to disaster to his . 
»lvantage - by arguing that .it 
demonshates to urgent need to 
reform to hideboimd Soviet • 
bureaucracy. 

Further evidence appeared -in 
Jsvestia on May 13. It noted tiie 
urgency wife which to. recue 
operation was cutting through red 
tape and quoted to local planni^ 
dtief as sayiti; “Here in 
Cbemobji decisions -are being 
taken quickly, there 'is not. one 
superfluous piece of paper. 

Men in to Gorbachoy mould, 
notably to 41-yter-old scientist 
Yo^eny Vdikhov, have bemi 


shown to Soviet viewers as being' 
in charge of events.. There has' 
scarcely been any refe re nce to 
Vladimir Sbcbeibitsky. the dd^ 
bead of to Ukrainian Communist 
Party -and a crony of the late 
Leonid Brezhnev. ^ 

At to same 'time, tbe for- 
midable.Kremlin propaganda ma- 
chine ordered'hs ^keanen to go . 
on the offenave about western 
coverage of fee disaster. Altough

The redundancies and closures 
announced by British Ship- 
^builders, though severe, are 
” hardly unexpected. The 
unions were w»ned three . 
months , ago that 3,500 jobs 
were at risk in the absence of 
new orders. Those orders have 
simply not materialised. That, 
and not any myopic penny- 
pinching by. the Treasury, is 
the reason for the ong- Under- 
standably, employee are an-

the search for scap^oats and 
for m^c solutions is fiidle. 


SmPYABD REALITIES 




British shipbuilding was a 
«Sweak competitor when wc^ 
shipbuilding slumped after the 
coUai^ of the oil tanker 
ordering boom in 1974. At the 
same time, newly .developing 
nations entered the market 
with the advantages of cheaper 
labour. South Korea and Bra- 
zil now rank second and third 
in .the world shipbuilding 
league- behind Japan .with 
Britain nowhere. Nationaliza- 
tion in 1977 did more to divert 
attention from the coming 
crisis than help adapt to it The 
slump, moreover, has been 
.^long and deep because pre- 
^vious overbidding left a sur- 
plus of dripping capacity. • 


pules that did so much to 
destroy British shipbuilding in 
the complacent Sixties. 

But there is little to be 
gained by waiting indefinitely 
for an upturn that is plai^y 
not going to happen. Ctee 
widely accepted forecast sug- 
gests that world ou^ut of new 
merchant ships will average 
between 13 and 14 miUion 
tonnes for ibe rest of the 
decade, returning to. the worst 
levels of 1979 and 1980. That 
compares with a peak of 34 
million tonnes in 1975. Tlris is 
not an example of British 
pessimism; it is the projection 
of the dominant Shipbuilders 
Association of Japan, submit- 
ted to the OECD working 
party on shipbuilding last July. 
They expect a sh^ recovery 
in the mid- Nineti^ but that 
wiU be almost entirely due to 
replacements of supoiankers 
and large bulk carriers. The fall 
in oil prices and the rapid 
advance of the yen offer some 
hope to Wegern . European 
tanker buildera But. these are 
s^mehts of the market where 
the advantages of the newer 
shrpbmlding countries are 
most telling. The slump in the 
of&hore o3 industry is no help. 


The only obvious benefit of 
nationalizatioo -r to the in- 
dustry if not to the taxpayer. — 
is that the shareholder can take 
a long view, dedding to ride- 
out losses -in a dump so as to' 
be' there for the. upturn. De- 
spite the halving of the pre^ 
nationalization workforce 
before the latest cuts, this has 
been done to a considerable 
extent The .Government has 
put in £1.4 billion and been 
patient through yean of heavy 
losses. Also, subsidies have 
^'been offered to attract mer- 
' ch^t ship order^ even if not 
with the aggression used by 
some other countriesL Man^ 
agers and workers' have pome 
to grips with restridi^ woik 
practice mid deiharcafion ifi^ ; 


It is no wonder, theit that 
the main object of the OECD 
working party has been for the 
advanced industrial countries 
to cooperate in ninning down 
capacity and restricting sub- 
sidies. Britain is not the only 
country to suffer. Yards have 
clo^ from Sweden to Japan. ' 
Even if the ordei- books had 
been less empty, not all the 
remaining ya^ could offer 
jobs with a foture. The main 
objects now must be to ensure 
that a tniocated British ship- 
buildittg industry does prosper 
and for the Government to 
recognize its obligations to 
communities in places like 
Middlesbrough and Tyneside. 

remaining - Brit&h Ship?, 
builders ^tards heed orders if .. 
they are to survive for lon^ Mr 
Pad" Chaniibi^ ihe,' Industry 


Secretary, emphasized yes- 
terday that financial aid to win 
orders was not a problem. It is 
also ridiculous to suppose that 
British Shipbuilders is now 
synonymous with the ship- 
building industry. Privatiza- 
tion of the warship and mixed 
naval/merchant yards exposed 
— but did not worsen — the 
state firm's problems on the 
merchant side. It has created a 
new sector, with powerful 
baddng in some cases, and the 
opportunity to concentrate 
man^ment attention on new 
techniques and specialisation. 
And the state-owned compet- 
itor, Harland & Wolff in 
Bel&st, has unrivalled facil- 
ities to exploit any upturn in 
demand for big ships. 

The battle between Harland 
and Swan Hunter over the 
latest naval order showed, 
however, that there may now 
be excessive competition for 
scarce naval business. This 
needs to be considered before 
any decisions areftnally taken 
between the Treasury and the 
Ministry of Defence to post- 
pone warship replacements on 
budget grounds. That is an 
area where government co- 
operation with industry can be 
most efiective 

Techniques for aiding 
industrial areas stricken by 
closures are now much more 
sophisticated. It is by no 
means the hopeless task the 
unemployment figures might 
sugge^ Mr John Smith, the 
shadow Industry Secretary, 
complains that setting up Brit- 
ish Shipbuilders Enterprise 
and ^ving more aid through 
the City action team are *'tiny 
pieces of sticking plaster over 
gaping wounds'*. Yet experi- 
ence has shown that caremlly 
designed regeneration pro- 
grammes can achieve what 
billions thrown at blanket 
regional aid never did. For 
Middlesbrough, as for Britain 
an4 its shipbuilding industry, 
it remains better to build new- 
strengihs than to peapetiiate 
old weakness. 


FAMILIES IN LAW 


N. 


The idea of a frmily court has 
enormous appeal Instead of 
stuffy judges, bull:^ng lawyers, 
and antiquated court proce- 
dures, it conjures up images of 
softly-spoken medialors and 
welfare officers engaged in 
constructive round table dis- - 
cussion about the needs of the 
^ family.- Small wonder it has 
^ attracted such a large foDow- 
ing It has, indeed, become a 
kind of Holy Grail for pressure 
groups campaigning for one 
kind of change or another in 
family law and proc^ure. The 
considtation paper issued this 
week by the Lord Chancellor’s 
Department points out that 
the various pressures for a 
family court have not been 
forg^ into a consensus about 
its structure, nature and func- 
tion. . The. responses to the 
paper almost certainly 
reflect that -lack of consensus. 
A family court has come to 
mean all thing s to all persons. 
4 Much of the support for a 
^family court is bas^ on the 
view that &mily breakdown is 
solely a -welfare problem to 
which the judicial process is 
inamiFOpriaie. According to 
this view, the family court 
should be a therapeutic ^ency 
rather than a ju^cial institu- 
tion. This is fundamentally . 
misguided. Of courae, agree- 
ment is the best way to solve 
family disputes; but even the 
most skiil^ conciliators can-: 
not invariably get weiy'one to 
agrre, especially in the wake of 
a divorce. 

In default of agreement, me 
'issues between the pmti« 
must be decided fairly, within 
the norm^ safeguards of ju- 
dicial procedure, including the 
dispassionate examination of 
evidence, regular procedures 
and leg^ representation. ^ 
the Finer Committee put it in 
1974, when it first proposed a 
unified family court, *'lhe in- 
dividual in the family court 
must in the last resort remain 


the suliyect of ri^ts, not the 
oiqect of assistance.** 

The Lord Chancellor rightly 
rejects the idea.tbat the fa^y 
court ^ould be a welfare 
institution. If all the authority 
of the law, with its powerful 
machinery of enforcement, 
were to be vested in a wel&re 
agency, we would be going 
down the road to a tyranny no 
less objectionable for being 
well-intentioned. ' 

Those who would like to see 
changes in the law are aitning 
at the wrong target The cre- 
ation of a family court would 
be a structural change in the 
administration of the law, not 
a refbnn of the law itself. Law 
reform must be pursued as a 
separate objective, whatever 
the framew^ of our court 
system. 

The real strength of the case 
for a femily court lies in the 
field of procedure. There are at 
present ho less than three 
difier^t &mily jurisdictions — 
the High Court, the County 
Courts, and the Magistrates' 
Courts. Their powers and 
procedures are different; there 
are overlaps and gaps, 
fragmentation and anomaly. 
Since the 1974 Finer report, 
however, legislation has 
ironed out many of the dif- 
ferences between the sub- 
stantive law administered by 
the ma^strates and the law 
applied in the higher courts; 
an^ acting under a very recent 
Act, the President of the 
Family Division has just is- 
sued directions for a new and 
more systexhatic allocation of 
business between the High 
Court and the County Courts. 
Things are certainly not as bad 
as they were. 

Nor have procedures stood 
still in the last decade. IMvorce 
has been simplified ^ and 
conciliation is now widely 
available. As the effects of the 
Divorce Reform Act have 
worked their way through the 


courts, there has been a grad- 
ual change in the atmosphere 
in which family prooeedii^ 
are conducted. A^y more 
cases are held in private; there 
is great informality; and there 
is grater expertise and sen- 
sitivity on the part of judges 
and practitioners. Peih^ 
there is room for further 
improvement, as the Booth 
Report on Matrimonial 
Causes Procedure has shown, 
but it is possible to accomplish 
this without the structural 
changes required by the cre- 
ation of a family court. 


The one &mily jurisdiction 
which h^ remained substan- 
tially untouched since the 
Finer Report is that of the 
magistrates. There is no ad- 
vance disclosure of the other 
party's case; there are rigid 
exclusionary rules of evidence; 
and reasons are not -usually 
given for decisions. There is no 
power to transfer cases to a 
higher court, no matter how 
difficult or unsuitable they 
may be for lay adjudicatiorL 
Worse still, the most testi^ 
demons of all — those in 
wltich a local authority sedcs 
to remove a child from the 
care of its p^nts — are 
exclusively within their prov- 
ince. Mr Dermis Walters's Bill 
would have provided mag- 
istrates with the power to 
transfer such cases to a hi^er 
court, but, regrettably, the 
Government rejected tl^ pro- 
per 


There is accordingly a strong 
case for a radical overhaul m 
^e magistrates* domestic and 
care junsdiction. In the mean- 
time, provision is urgently 
required for difficult cases to 
be - transferable to a hig^ 
court. If this most striking 
deficiency in the present sys- 
tem of administration of fam- 
ily law were made good, the 
need for a femily court would 
recede yet further.

Case for nuclear power generation 






From Mr Ian Uoyd, MP f(V 
Havant (ConsenvUiveJ 
Sir; If the implications of the base 
assumption underlying Dr 
Comfort's tetter (May 13) are 
accepted the people of Britain, 
Franoe, the United States, Japan 
and any other nation which is a 
significant user of nuclear power 
are presented with only one logical 
choice. 

To avoid the risk which Dr 
Comfort describes they must, at 
worst, close down their nuclear 
power stations immediately and 
dispe^ the nuclear fuel and the 
associated radioactive media- 
nisms of the nuclear steam sys- 
tems as rapidly as possible. At 
best, they would be required to 
suspend all ftirth«' development 
of nuclear power (as some coun- 
tries such as Sweden and Austria 
have indeed done) and to phase 
out existing nuclw power sta- 
tions as fiA as new generating 
capacity and fuel sources could be 
developed. 

The US National Academy of 
Sciences Committee on Nuclear 
and Alternative Energy Systems 
examined this option in its mas- 
sive report, published after Three 
Mile Island in 1980, and rgect^ 
the option as totally impractical 
Cbernoj^l does not alter that 
conclusion or the weight of ev- 
idence behind it, though it has 
already had a roost damaging 
effect, predictably and under- 
standably, on the public perc^ 
lion oi the risks associate with 
dvi] nuclear power. 

We are entering a itiiase in 
which the future of nuclear 
electridiy generation worldwide is 
seriously at risk and could ea^ 
be destroyed by the hostility of 
groups whose unscrupulous oppo- 
sition to nuclear power often 
conceals a distaste for sdence and 
technology as well as a serious 
inatnliiy to accept the feet thm the 
proUems associated with a total 
reliance on conventional or so- 
called "alternative" energies are 


prodigious and hy no me^ 
soluble and that total reliance bn 
them could produce environ- 
mental problems not only as 
serious but quite possibly as 
catastrophic (e.g., the 
"grBenhouse" heating effect on 
world climate) as those described 
by Dr Comfort and others. 

Nothing will do more damage to 
the good judgement and courage 
which must now be ^own by all 
who have a rattjor responsibility 
for energy policy than to present, 
as a virtual certainty, the worst- 
case scenarios associated with 
nuclear power disasters and to 
invite the public to accept that 
only those opposing policies 
involving the acceptance of such a 
risk are uniquely and exclusively 
interested in .the relationship 
tween human welfere, prosperity 
and the environment 

The conclusion which Dr 
Comfort's letier Aould suggest is 
quite different Nudear power, 
which is, in my Judgement, both 
indispensable and inevitable, will 
require a heightened awareness of 
safety procedures and the 
contribution which both technol- 
ogy and human oiganisation can 
make to thenrt His worst-case 
scenario should never be allowed 
to happen, anywhere. If, as many 
will argue, it cannot be ruled out, 
then humanity as a whole will 
have to devise new methods for 
dealing with it 

That may present an immense 
cballei^ to our science, onr 
ingenuity and our Judgement It 
may also require a fimdamental 
advance in the mechanisms of 
international co-operation. But we 
will make a hideous mistake if we 
now attempt to retreat into a cul- 
de-sac of scientific obsoirantism 
and political reactiort fuelled by a 
bogus monopoly of public con- 
cern. 

Yours faithfully,

Fears for health 


From Mr P. A. Green 
Sir, The Minister for Apiculture, 
Hsheries and Food has repeatedly 
stated in the last few days that 
tiiere is no risk to health in the UK 
from the Chernobyl nuclear ac- 
cident He supports this statement 
by repeated references to the 
recommendations of the Inter- 
national Commission for Radio- 
logical - Protection (ICRP) upon 
wtiich our radiation safety stan- 
dards and the emergencyreference 
levels (ERL) are based. There are 
several points that come jGrom this 
bland statement: 

1. Far from being an independent 
group of international scientists, 
the ICRP is in reality an 
organisation whose membOTsbip 
circles within a select group of 
individuals, many of whom have, 
or have had. extensive links with

2. The risk estimates issued by the 
ICRP ate amongst the lowest 
availaUe. Both the United Na- 
tions Sdentific Committee on the 
Effects of Atomic Radiation and 
the United States National Acad- 
emy of Sciences Committee on the 
Biological Effects of Ionising 
Radiation (the BEIR committee) 
have issued reports that si^gest 
radiation is between four and 10 
limes more hazardous than the 
ICRP suggest The recent Medical 
Research Council study into 
UKAEA (United Kingdom 
Atomic Energy Authority) 
employees supports this view, 
su^esting that the real risks are 
four to seven times greater than 
the ICRP claim. 

3. The estimates for risk used by 
the ICRP are based heavOy on 


data that arise as a result of the 
Hiroshima and Nagasaki atomic 
bombings These &ta are cur- 
rently teing re-evaluated and are 
widely expected to confirm that 
the ICRP underestimate the risk 
by around three times. 

It is clear then that the ICRP 
recommendations, which are en- 
dorsed in the UK by the National 
Radiation Protection Board, 
underestimate the real risks from 
radiation by between three and 10 
times, a more likely estimate being 
a five-fold increase. It logically 
follows then that our radiation 
safety standards and the emen- 
gency reference levels are set too 
high. Indeed the ERL used in the 
UK are 2,000 Becqueiels per litre 
of milk, yet the IAEA (Inter- 
national Atomic Eneiigy A^cy) 
recommends 1 .000 Becquerels per 
litre, whilst in the Netherlands it is 
SOO Becquerels per litre. 

When the fects are considered 
against the recent events in the 
UK, with the authorities' ill- 
coordinated response to the 
Chernobyl accident, the minister’s 
statements cannot be supported. 
He would do far more to allay 
public fears about the radioactive 
cloud if, as in Europe, the mon- 
itoring authorities could get their 
act together and release regular 
accurate information upon which 
independent scientists could ac- 
curately assess the situation and 
the health risks that mi^t result 

The public are urgently request- 
ing information — and it is the 
duty of the Government to pro- 
vide it

Levels of risk 

From the Chairman of the Radio- 
active Waste Managemera Ad- 
visory Committee 
Sir, It is a phy that Friends of the 
Earth so ofmn spoil a good case by 
over-statement I refer to Dt 
Russell^ones's letter (May 9) in 
which he criticises official state- 
ments on the physical effects in 
the UK of the Cbonobyl accident 
We live in a background of 
radiation of abc^ 2 millisieverts 
(or 0.2 lem) per annum. The 
effects of much larger doses have 
been deduced primarily tom 
Hiroshima victims. If 200 times 
the annual bacteround dose is 
received over a few days one 
person, the chance of dytig of 
cancer (in UK) before death by 
any other cause is increased from 
22 per cent to 22.5 per cent - or 
equivalently, this dc^ is likely to 
cause one extra death by cancer if 
it is administered to each of 200 
people. 

For doses much ihan 

this the situation is obscured by a 
variety of conflicting and un- 
controlIaUe fectors which make 
detailed analysis impo^bie. 

In order to get an estimate of the 
effects of sm^er individual doses 
is standard International 
Commission on Radiological 
Protection and National Radi- 
ation Protection Board practice to 
assume that on average the same 
sin^e death will occur if one 
thousandth ofthis dose is received 
by ^)Q,000 peoi^ or even one 
millionth by 200 million people. 
Provided the implied individual 


doses are comparable with back- 
ground This is a reasonable 
approximation. 

For very much smaller individ- 
ual doses it {TOvides cleariy only 
an upper limit — possibly a very 
crude upper limit — since it makes 
no allowance for the biological 
defence mechaiusms which op- 
erate at these levels, p^culariy 
when the doses are received over 
much longer periods. 


The use of this upp»-Iimit 
estimate does not imply scientific 
evidence for the statement that 
“there is no threshold below which 
radiation is harmless", though 
much criticism of the nucl^ 
indu^ in the has been based 
on this assumption. 

To avoid the obvious pitfells of 
applying this formula in practice 
to low-dose situations the ICRP 
have recommended limits, none 
of which are too far removed tom 
the background situation, far be- 
low levds for which deleterious 
effects are identifi^e or delect- 
able and below which protective 
measures are not considered nec- 
essary. In common parlance, this 
is what is normally understood as 
“safe" and reference to these 
limits has implied no lack of 
understanding of the basic prm- 
dples on which the recommenda- 
tions are made.

From the Chairman of the Sonh 
East Thames Reffonal Health 
Authority 

Sir, I have read with interest the 
letter tom 1 2 hospital consultants 
(May 13) claiming that the health 
service in London is in a stale of 
crisis. 

Several of your correspondents 
are employed within the North 
East Thames Region and 1 would 
strongly dispute the conclusions 
they draw. There is massive 
change occurring in London. 
Some of this involves reduction in 
acute services in the inner city 
where there has been a major fall 
in population. 

This region sriiich is re^nsible 
for the hospital and hospital-tesed 
services for nearly four million 
residents of north-east London 
and Essex with a revenue budget 
approaching £1 billion a year, has 
made enormous strides in 
developing its services over the 
past year^ opening major new 
hospitals in places such as Col- 
chester and Newham and this yev 
the new Homerton Hospit^ will 
open in Hackney. 


The number of acute patients 
treated, both as in-patients and as 
out-patients, has been increasing 
every year and at the feme time, 
new day hospitals for the eldedy; 
new h^ih centres, drug clinics, 
communiQ homes for the men- 
tally handicapped and mentally ill 
have been opened. 

The National Health Service 
provides an outstanding quality of 
care which is the envy of other 
countries. As regional chairman I 
have fought and will continue to 
fight for additional resources. 
However, financial resources will 
always be constrained and the 
challenge is to use these in the 
most effective way. 


Consultants can and should 
play a leading role in achieving 
this. They must realise the 
changes in the balance of care 
between the teaching hospitals 
and the district general hospitals, 
and between acute and priority 
care services leading to more 
patients being cared for locally. 

Teachir^ hospitals, in addition 
to their vital rote in teaching and • 
research, will continue to treat 
their- lo^ population and those 
referred • other ho^itals. 
They will be smaller and. to avoid 
duplication and maintain ex- 
cellence, will need .to forge closer 
linlu with each other and with 
district hospitals. 


We are proud of the achieve- 
ments in our region, but acknowl- 
edge that we can do even more, 
particularly with more money. 
Yours faithfully.

Woodland eyesore 

From Mr T. Paterson-Brown 


Sir, I read with interest Lord 
Esher's comments (May 1 3) on the 
eyesore produced by the white 
plastic treeguards analogous in the 
plantations to war cemeteries. 

As a land agent it is with the best 
intentions tiiat I use white as the 
colour wherever possible. Guards 
ooiowed dark brown and green 
are available, but the problem has 
been whether coloured plastics are 
as biodegradable as the white 
ones. 


Although it may be an eyesore 
for the eany years of the tree's life, 
it serves as a useful silvicultural 
purpose when it comes to weeding 
the plantations and replacing dead 
trees. The very fact that they are 
visible ensures that this work is 
both thorough and is carried out 
with the least damage to small 
trees which become half hidden by 
brackeiL brambles and other we^ 
species. 


May i therefore request that 
Lord Esher bears with us in the 
early years so as to ensure less of 
an eyesore when many of the trees 
succss^IIy reach mature stage. 
Yours etc.

Musical excellence 


RiimcnnnRP Hniise__ 



From Miss Fanny Waterman 
Sir, In his letter of Aiml 26 Sir Ian 
Hunter refers emphatically — “let 
there be no mistake" — to the 
overall standard of collies as 
"already high". I fear that unfortu- 
nately the reverse is true, es- 
pecially with regard to young 
British pianists. 

From my experience of serviitg 
as a juror oil most of the major 
international piano competitions 
in the past 10 years, my colleagues 
and I have been very disappointed 
with the standi of British 
competitors who, with a few 
exceptions, fail to proned beyond 
the first stages of theu com- 
petitions. 

We found that our young pi- 
anists do not possess the basic 
technical skills developed to a high 
enough degree to enable them to 
express their musical ideas. They 
lack specifically the techniques to 
tone production, pedalling, pan 
playing, independence of fingers, 
trills, ridps and octaves. They 
cannot even play scale passages

As there should be no dividing

The CAMPAIGN in the 
EASTERN SOUDAN 

and the SUAKIN-BERBER 
RAILWAY. 

(TROM OUR SPECIAL 

CORRESPONDENT.) 

SUAKIN. April 29. 

Althou^ no definite instruc- 
tions have as 3^ been received, it is 
*‘in the air” that (gierations here- 
are over for the seeson, - that the 
railway works are to be discontin- 
ued.. . . 

The origiiial idea was that the 
line should be nude bv ofiiceis of 
the Royal Engineers and coolies 
&om India. . . This project, as 
dearly-bought exjurience has 
prov^ was an admirable one, but 
unfortunately it fell through. Lord ! 
Haitington entnisted the construc- 
tion of the line to the F-ngiiah 
engineering firm of Messrs. Lucas 
and Aird. who oDered to place the 
resources of their establishment at 
the difeosal of the Government, 
diwiaiTning the idea of obtaining 
any pecuniary reward. . . 

Woric on the railway had not 
long been - in progress- before it 
became evident that the want of 
system and organization would 
prevent anything like the rapid 
construction of the line. No park of 
materials was formed, and up to 
the present day none has been 
established. The materials as they 
were landed were at once pcesed to 
the front, with the result that at 
one time the working parties were 
waiting for sleqieis, at another for 
rails, then again for spikes; so that 
in every working day of eight hours 
four at least were q)ent by the men 
at the heed of the line sitting on the 
sand waiting for materials. The 
cause of this want of qrstem is not 
far to seek. The War Ofiflee sent 
out a- distinguished officer, .and 
feeciajly charged him, with the 
direction of the undertaking. . . It 
was strongly impressed iq>on him 
that on no account was he to 
interfere with Messrs. Lucas and 
Axrd's men, who were to have the 
entire construction of tte railway. 
As a wiaHar of fact, however, 
circumstances, which proved ^ 
more powerful than lie General 
coounandin^tbe line of communi- 
cations, interiered most decisively 
in the matter. Messrs. Lucas and 
Aird sept out, in addition to their 
permanent st^, Cwo of their own 
partner^ and had these gentlemen 
remained in the country instead of 
returning to En gfand after a few 
days* residence at Sualdn. many 
subsequent difficulties would have 
been avoided. On their departure 
the firm were represented by two 
gentlemen, one at tbe front to 
make the line and the other at 
Sualdn to pay the men and act as 
administrative agent generally. It 
soon became evident that to leave 
the line in the hands of two 
civiliaiB without any directing 
head, and to call upon them at tbe 
same time to work with the anqy in 
the field, which was not only to 
protect them while working but to 
aid them largely in the actual 
construction of the line, was to 
throw qron them a task to which 
they were quite unequal. . . 

The actual construction work 
done by Messrs. Lucas and Aird's 
men was the spacing out of ^ 
sleepers, placing the rails, spiking 
them do^ screwing up a fish- 
plate here arid there (but they often 
had to wait a long time for fish- 
plates), and str^htenxng line 
when it was being ballasted The 
rest of the construction was done 
by the Army. The formation of the 
roadway and the ballasting of the 
line was done by Ei^fish aoldiets 
and Indian coolies; the rails were 
dragged from the place wism th^ 
had been shot out on. to the saiid 
from the trucks by Horse AitiDeiy 
teams or by horsro siqiplied by the 
Commissariat; the steqiers were 
carted to tbe front in ordnance 
carts drawn by Army Transport 
mules. The remit of di^ion of 

labour was that only 1,100 yards a 
day were laid over a country much 
easier than Hy^ Park and quite as 
easy as that in India ara the 
United States where from three to 
seven miles would be quite possi- 
ble. Had the expedition gone on 
and the raflway been laid at die 
same rate as that which has 
hitherto (^itained, Berber would 
not have been reached until July 
nest year, that is to say, the 
protecting army would hme had to 
spend 16 months on a road which 
has been constantly travelled hv 
camels in 10 days. . . 


.Any step towards raisii^ stan- 
dards in pursuit of musical ex- 
cellence should be loudly 
applauded. 

Yours faithfully.

THE 



TIMES 


F or many yean the re- 
ceived vi^om has been 
to reduce the level of 
salary increases in order 
to make UK industry 
more competitive, keeping infla- 
tion low, and to reduce unemploy- 
ment My experience tells me that 
we are attempting to solve the 
problem by addressing the symp- 
tom rather than the cause. 

What we need are not smaller 
increases, but t^r increases — by 
those organizations that can afford 
them. This would then be ^ 
indication of a free market in 
salaries, which is no different from 
the fiw martets which have 
d^eloped in such areas as trans- 
port. health care, defence i^ure- 
ment and telecommunications. 

If an organization is successful 
and pays well it demands, and can 
attract, people of the highest 
c^ibra. 'ftis in turn ensures that 
the go(^ or services also continue 
to of the highest calibre. They 
are tiien in greater demand and the 
company increases its output ac- 
cot^n^y by additional capital 
and labour investments. 

This is the path to secure wealth 


creation and employment, not low 
[HtKiuctivity and low wages. 

There is less than complete 
understating that the UK is now 
a low productivity-low pay econo- 
my. With approximately the same 
size populations, France and West 
Germany have gross national 
products of 25 per cent and 50 per 
cent lespectivelv greater than the 
UK It is no accident that salary 
lev'els in these countries are also 
oeatcr in the same ratios as their 
GNPs. in spite of the absence of 
substantial oil and gas output 

By the standards of the Western 
worid. the UK is a poor country. 
Italy has already surpassed the U K 
in per capita CNP. How long will 
it be before Spain and Portugal 
catch up? The UK is now re- 
nowned for hs centres of poverty 
such as Glasgow and Merseyside, 
which are among the worst in 
Europe. Not much more than 100 
years ag 9 , Britain was the richest 
country in the world! 

I would contend that we in the 
UK are mistaken in the way that 
we are trying to solve the problem. 
We should be concerned about the 
low productivity of our industries. 
If a company can increase its 


The way forward 
is through high 
salaries for the 
people who can 
expand business, 
says Peter Ward 

output, both in quality and quan- 
tity, with the same numb^ of 
employees, then unit costs go 
down. This then leads to neater 
denu^ so output is increased 
through additional labour and 
capital investments. If we maio- 
tain theemphasison lowpay, then 
low productivity will continue. 

Om has only to look at the job 
vacancy of the quality Press 
to see a wide dynamic rtmge of 
salaries across similar jo& in 
different companies throughout 
the UK The highest salary that a 
research and development manag- 



er, for example, can be paid will be 
two or three times that paid to the 
lowest It will come as no surprise 
drat the most hi^y paid can 
graeiaily be fbuna in the most 
profitable bigh-prodnctivity com- 
panies. If an organization tries to 
pay high without the profit to 
aipport h. then it wiQ &iL But if a 
company is growtae, with high 
productivity, then it should be 
encouraged to pay welL It is 
dearly succes^ and its employ- 
ees should be rewarded according- 
ly. This is then a dear signal to 
everyone else that reward will 


follow we^th creation — srincb is 
what titeUK need& 

It is ^ more us^l for comp^ 
nics to spend their cnergiK in diis 
manner than in takeover hatties\ 
that do nothing for p^nctivity, 

. From my own eiqie^ce id a 
muttinatkmal dectroaics com^ 
ny 1 can see tiiat British salanes 
are among the \avkst in Eun^ 
This causes severe probtems in a 
number of area& 

In recent yems my company has 
exported some of hs best talent to 
the United States, Swe-= 

den. The Netherlands West Ger- 
many, France, Switzerland, 
Giedie and Ausd^ia. They then 
find it eximndydifiQcalt to letinii - 
to the UK because of the hecesaiy 
reduction in standard of Imng, 
unless, as is sometimes the case, 
they have built up sufficient 
capital wealth to fill the gap. 

Now, electronics in general and 
information technolo^' in par^ 
ular are industries whidi readily 
surmount national fiontiers, and 
because English is the iingaa 
fhmca^ Britons find it easier to 
work abroad than most otiMr 


nationals, e^ectally with tbe fi-

ployeeare risi^ very Weara

and. if we want the best people _we 
have to pay the best, iiiespcjaive 
of tiie exhortations of national

peed bjr some awkwad ques-

extraoidinarily wdl; it was his 
first taste of a woiU hitheno 
uidnibwn to him. 

His composure and serenity 
over the vears since ‘195X id 
tbe free of adid^on by p^le 
the world over, was a^nisb- 
ing proof of a very exceptional . 
person. He never became

danger 
now and

Whtt «&b oncer. Aids siid a 
nasty case of suspected ritnal 
sacrifice, it was a pretty 
sobering night for .htniie 
viewing. 

The cancer suffered by the 
hero of CBve Jermain^ semi- 
antobiM|r8pliical pisj The 
Best Yam ei Year lift 
(BBC2) was secondary 
therefore beyond control; the 
perfonnance of Lee Whitlock 
as the dootned yeasg footbaU- 
er was, on the contrary, beand- 
fidly controlled, and Adrian 
Sbagold directed simply and 
affecttsgly. Despite some un- 
certain acting in the lesser 
rries, this portrait of stoical 
res^nation pimctnated 
qnnts of emotion no^ ^bso- 
lately true.

Age. Or in Aooui times, or 
even in the Dark Ages. If the 
boffins cannot agree about

squashed, leathery corpse for

Tlie programme's rather 
stodgy pfo^ore was enliv-

sdentist, imported her own 
bog persMi for treatment, de- 
dued at customs -I've got the

and a bo^ in the boot'*. But 
the daim, voiced over the day

Theatre: Holly Hill sums up the Broadway season 

Just a glimmer of light . . . 


When surveyiiM tius Broad- 
way season, whid) officially 
ended the first weekend in 
May, ^ the way to forestall 
despair is to w teankfiil for 
small fivours. Though, there 
have no shows to cele- 
brate without reservation, and 
few ahows at ah, there have 
been flares along tbe dnsky 
White Way, But not always. 
The last play of tee season is a 
disaster one cannot reclaim by 
thinking of its nice set and 
incidental music. The Cirde 
in tbe Square has followed 
Broadway’s worst revival 
(John MaUcovitch's string of 
Tie Caretaker) with its worst

^ Jesrica Tandy and Hume 
Oonyo and directed by Peter 
Hall, it takes on the lustre of a 
dieriteed fomily b^oom. 
Tbe Cronyns have decteied 
this their last play together. I 
hope that they decide to make 
more foxeweU appearances 
but, if not, my images of their 
final stage partnership will be 
of Miss Tandy's gaiety

Jonathan Miller’s produc-

for he has cut Eimpe 0*Neifl's 
exorosm of his ontily ghosts

by jettisoning lines but by 
overiaq^ing and graerally 


speeding them up. 1 found this

Spacey as his alcohoUc broteer

out set which diminishes

Jack Lemmon ctese the

the impression teal he is in tbe

could not help but ihmk how 
much Mr Lemmon resembled

comedy. Jack Lemmon is 
simply not believable as a 
serious Shakespearian actor

unfailing afiability makes 
James Tyrone too likeable

ing p^ormance of a wimpy 
bt^rmend by Midsael Rupert 
and a vivacious performance 
of the title role by Debbie 
Alim. Sweet Charity is not a 
vintage Broadway muacal or

enjoyable entertainment for 
New York's summer tourists

remember to give thanks for 
any enjoyment at alL

Enlightened 

Edinburgh 

^ The main theme of this year's 
Edinburgh Festival is a cele- 
bration of "The Enli^t- 
enment", tbe Scottish mani- 
festation of the eighteenth 
century uteich ttiread new 
thinking throughout Europe 
on tee arts, philosophy, eco- 
nomics, law, lel^OQ and tee 
sciences. 

The festival also includes 
tee first World Theatre Season 
in Britain since in 1975. 
will bring together companies 
from the United Siat^ West 
Germany, South Afiica, Po- 
land, Japan. France, Spain, 
Sweden and China as well as 
Britain. In concerts and opera 
k tee festival lays emphasis on 
I the work of Tchaikovsky and 
Stravinsky. 


"It's not an opm and if s not theatre 
but it'sgot mnaC”, remarks Harrison 
Birtwistle, attempting to define his 
most amUtious work to date. The 
Mask qf Orpheus, which receives its 
world premiCre at the Coliseum next 
Wednesday more than a after 
the first note was wrraeiL "It started 
life as FausT, he continues, “bat 
Orpheus seemed a better suigect far 
muse. Ifs still basically tbe same 
piece, though.*’ 

With this set of clues, our conversa- 
tion fiM* a moment seems likely to 
turn into an elaboiate riddle, an 
interview form which Birtwisde, 
notoriously sby of publicity, hte 
made his own. unexpectedly, 
he warms to his thcrat "1 needed a 
subject to ex|xes5 a theattical idea. By 
choosing a myte everyone wotdd 
know, 1 could shape it in any way 
without destroying its identity", be 
says. “So tee story is tedd several 
times hi different ways. Ifs fhll of 
episodes, Ute a Beaito scrip-cartoon, 
gcang back and forte .in tim^ in what 
I simuttaneoas oontiasL No 
opera has ever done that before." 

So taxing, indeed, is the undertak- 
ing for any opera house teat Orpheus 
tes endured a much I 0097 period of 
gestanion than dteer BhtwisUe, or his 
librettist Peter SnovieflT, anticipated. 
Commissioned in 1970 by I^ler Han 
for Covent Garden, tbe work was 
then tossed between Glyndebourne 
and tee English Natioinal Opera, 
where it final^ found harbour thanks 
to Lord Haiewood. It was the opera 
houses, therefore, teat caused Bir^- 
wislie's delay in finittung tbe piece: "I 
couldn’t waste time on a work that 
might never be performed", he sm 
belying- his usual reputation for 
prodigious patience. "Thafi what I 
learnt in my years writif% muse for 
tee National Theatre. You do wbaf s 
needed now." 

He returned to tee halAfinished 
score five years ago, comfdet^ Act 
HI and making tee electronic sound 
tape, an int^ral elemteit with tee 
hdp of Barry Anderson at IRCAM in 
I^s. Meanwbik, lus muak for tee 
Nsteonai’s Orestaa bad enaUed him 
to explore his interest bote in Gredt 
myth and in the relationship between 
music and speedi, foUowii^ through 
his ideas in Orjdiats. His six years m 
charge of muric at tee National also 
lauqtet him about theatre. 

by tbe time 1 returned to 
Orjdieus Fd lost my theatrical 
innocence", be says. "PuHdi^ im tee 
work again was like entering a 
pyramid and looking at papyrus. 
What could it pebbly mean? Uke aO 
good arefaaeologists, what 1 couldn't 
undeidand 1 made up. Ouoe Fd 
welded tee past to the present it was 
easy." 

The music for Orf^reus, spacing 
as it does the peak of ffiriwistie’s 
creative powers, uses the blocks and 
tm-eis of sound which have become 
his ballm^ from The Triumph of 
Time (1971) to his recent orchestral 
tour ae- fiuoe. Earth Dances. So 
complex are these layers in Orpheus 
that two conductors — next week 
Wgflr Hnwarte and Paul Daniel— wffl 
share tee w^ between them. 



Harrisen Jffirlwistte with Joodyn Herberts eiut embleBigtic mask: 
phoCogrqte by Zofr Don&c 


Oqdieus presents an additional 
new daOenge bote to opera houses 
and to singm in amjdiMxig electroni- 
cally every 'member of the cast and 
orchestra, requiring six sound engi- 
oeers and absorbing at a siroke 
almost half tbe p^uction's £70.(XX) 
budget For the singers, this is likely 
to prove a bigger tmnical difficulty 
tean the music hself — much tn 
which, says Elgar Howarte, is "lyrical 
and camabUe m the key of G". Even 
Birtmstle, hearing a few bars sung for 
tee fiiA time in rehearsal last week, 
admitted being surprised at how 


"sexy" it sounded. Ooly Marie Angel, 
as tee Grade of tee Dead, has a 
oonsisientiy jagged and violent vocal 
part as tee role demands. 

The orchestra win have more 
prominence than most operas allow. 
"Scaicdy an accompaniomfo pan", 
obserres Howarte. Birtwistle has 
invented two instruments for tee 
occasion, as befits a work concerned 
with the birth of music. The first, a 
Noh harp, pla)^ tee opening notes of 
the score. The second, best described 
as a box with a spring stretched across 
and a horn sticking out of tbe top, bad 


no name until our conversation. 
"Call it a ratchet horn", decn^ 
Birtwistle, scribbling tee words be- 
neath a hasty sketch of the 
instrument 

More rignificant tean either of 
these, teou^, is the colossal eiection- 
ic instnunent Birtwistle and Barry 
Anderson have foiged to represent 
the voice of Apolla This will interact 
with tee army of win^ brass, harps,' 
guitars and percussion — though no 
strings — of the orchestia, or be heard 
alone in set-pieces called "passing 
clouds". These Birtwistle likens to 
freeze-fiaraes, halting the action 
abruptly as they do. Indeed the 
bngtiage of film, of flashbacks and 
lime-shifts, helps describe tee non- 
operatic techniques used in Orpheus. 
Birtwistle is adamant however, teat 
this is a piece for live theatre. "It's 
real steam-theatrcL It’s about illusion. 
Id a film, there's no mystery. You 
know someone’s just pressed the 
button." 

Surely, though, this many-feceted 
narrative, in which each character 
appears in triplicate, might perplex 
those operagoeis accustomed to a plot 
which starts with the overture and 
ends with a rollicking finale? How 
will they cope with seeing Orpheus 
die not only by suicide but also by 
thunderbolt, being gjven lania^ 
treatment by angry women 
apotheozed into the sun? "Don't 
know, ask ibem", says Birtwistle. 
"They'D certainly never have seen 
anytlung like it before But then it's 
not Verdi" 

David Freeman, abo produced 
Birtwistle’s Punch and Judy for Opera 
Factory, promises simple scenic de- 
vices, such as rope-Iaddm for HelL to 
offeet tee high s^lization of the piece, 
underlined by Jocelyn Herbert's em- 
blematically colour^ masks. Judging 
by a glimpse in rehearsal of PbDip 
L^gridge and Jean Rigby, resplen- 
dent in orange and blue ma^ as 
Orpheus and Euridice, tee results 
should be imposing or perhaps — 
since each appears in triplicate -* 
tr^ly impost 

Birtwiwe is now embaridng on a 
new opera for Covent Garden, based 
on Sir Gawain and the Greene Krtight, 
an altogether modest affeir in com- 
p^soD, he says. As tbe long-overdue 
birth of The Mask of Or^eus draws 
closer, be holds his Irath. How close 
can a traditional opm house come to 
realizing bis intentions? Only next 
week uml fell 

Meanwhile, this extraordinary 
amalgam of mime, puppets, dance 
and song, already being hailed by 
many as the musical and theatrical 
event of the decade, caters for eve^ 
whim. The only iitgredient missing in 
Birtwistle's Undnwrid would ap- 
pear to be gods dancing can-cans. 

• There will be a series of extra 
events to show The MtKk of Orpheus 
in the context of Birtwistle’s work, 
including workshops, open rehearsals 
and talxk Next Wednesday at tee 
British Museum a Study Day will be 
held to examine the Orphic tradition 
and hs role in tee development of 
opera. Full details fitrm ENO. 


Concert 


Subtle percussion 


Eden and Tamir/ 
Giennie/Thomas 
Wigmore Hall 


Perhaps tee most remarkable 
thing about the ^ng and by 
any standards briUi^t percus- 
sionist Evelyn Glennie (more 
proof, incidentally, that prac- 
tical training in this country 
can police its fair share of 
stars) is that her playing seems 
so innate. Here she was pert of 
a formidable team, tee pia- 
nists Bracba Eden a^ Alexan- 
der Tamir and tbe percus- 
sionist Nigel Thomas, in 
Bartok's Sonata for two pi- 
anos and percussion. Arid, 
although one should not treat 
this or any other piece of 
music as a oomp^tion be- 
tween participants,' it really 
did seem that she was the 
most imperturbable of teem 
all. 

Each stroke she made was 
perfectly placed and weighted, 
whether in isolation or as part 
of tee continuous pattern, 
while tee control which the 
ensemble as a whole exercised 
made the impetus of tee outer 
movements the more effec* 
live. Eden and Tamir provi^ 
ed tbe vital eluent of 
rawness, and tbe central 
movement had a delicious 
mixture of nocturnal misti- 
ness and poise, with Thomas 
contributing sensitively toa 


The aspiring solo percus- 
sionist's chief hazard is, of 
course, the lack of v^ much 
solo perc^on music of any 
real quality, save for a few 
works of the kind whose 
adventurousness is likely to 
affect audience figures ad- 
versely. Glennie ^ed this 
oddly-balanced recital with 
two woiks teal, while they 
dispia:^ admii^ly her as- 
tonish^ curabilities, did 
very little else. 

TTje American percussion- 
ist/composer Neil Deponte's 
Concertino for marimba and 
piano (Philip Smite) had the 
advantage of brevity but tee 
disadvani^ of crass naivety, 
especially in the Latin Ameri- 
can flavoured dance with 
which it concluded. Toshiro 
Mayuzumi’s Concertino for 
xylophone and i»ano. on tee 
other band, was &r too long 
for its maierial (scarcely orien- 
tal l:^ the way) thou^ 
Glennie’s phrasing in tee slow 
movement and her sheer vir* 
luosity in tee finale were 
distra^ons enough. 

Eartier Eden and Tamir bad 
given a typically ebullient 
performance of Lutoslawski’s 
Paganim Variations, a work 
tb^ have made v^ much 
teeirown, as weU as infectious 
reading of Poulenc’s Sonata 
and Milhaud's Scaramoucke 
— trifles perhaps, but hugely 
enjoyable ones oeverteeless.

Sherman, Cardiff 


The seven-year reira of tee 
colonels was one of modem 
Greece's most disgraceful epi- 
sodes. infecting every corner 
of public life and uniting aU 
tee pockets of everyday vile- 
ness under tbe banner of 
"democracy". 

Dick Edwards has set his 
new play outside a shabby 
hotel on an unnamed 
island in the summer of 1969, 
a time of vague paranoia and 
definite curfews. In tee courae 
of a grossly flabby first act we 
meet tee bigoted hotelier, his 
more sympathetic wife and a 
bomilistic b^gar-woman who 
persists in playing tbe part of 
conscience. 

To tee parents returns their 
son, after three months' mili- 
tary training in Athens, with 
the news dm the isfend is to 
be used as a prison camp for 
Communists; the same boat 
also delivers the first tourists 
to be seen ^1 summer, a 
middle-aged Welsh p^. Some 
slight comic mileage is wrung 
from tee newcomers’ admira- 
tion of tee noble Grade lan- 
guage when tbe hotelier is in 


feet foully cursing the b^gar, 
but tee large theme of misper- 
ception implied in tee title is 
ill served by tbe inaccuracies 
of Roland Rees's stiff and 
unfocused production. 

The sweai^ here is noth- 
ing like as richly comprehen- 
sive and incantatory as it is in 
real Grade life, while tee 
players' "body language" is . 
general-purpose Mediterra- 
nean and not spedficaUy 
Greek: anyone who unUtink- 
ingly attempts to bridge tee 
culture-gap by giving a ^eeiy 
British teuml^up, as tire 
feke-woildly tourist does, wiU 
quickly leant the sign's local 
significance. 

As to the meaning of tee 
play itself -* which, having 
staked out the pitch for ferce, 
warps into a sort of cartoon 
tra^dy one can only say 
that Mr Edwards has drawn 
his battle4mes with unfor^- 
abie crudeness. The three men 
are brutes and cowards, tee 
three women humane and 
sendtive, and the prison h^. 
adumbrated in the sound of 
the convicts* noctiual arrival 
is inexplicably forgotten. Pa- 
tricia Kane's enthusiastic por- 
trayal of tee good-hearied 
Welsh woman is a saving 
grace.

I Julian Lennon

Ironic, is it noL that tee son of 
i the man who by his own 
account became more popular 
tean Jesus could aot nearly fill 
' the Albert Hall with his fol- 
lowers this week. 

This is not quite the un- 
' sportiiu remark it might 
! seem. The pious imentioD 10 
treat Julian Lennou feirty by 
reviewing his British d^but 
without referent to compari- 
sons with his illustrious feteer 
[was undercut by several fec- 
' tors, not the lea^ of which was 
bis recital, durii^ tee latter 
I pan of tee concert, of songs 
associated with tee late Jolm 
L»non. 

By using “Day Trii^", Tt 
Won't Be Long" and “Stand 
By Me" to ensure the closing 


ovation after a less tean 
rapturous reception for bis 
own songs, this young man 
makes hunselT appear more 
calculating than he probably 
15. But m a tightly pro- 
grammed and csefuUy re- 
hearsed show there were 
certainly few signs of the sort 
of ttx)ntaneity that used to be 
a hallmark of rock *n' roll in 
the years ^ (Before Video). 

Julias Lennon's son^ of 
which "Too Late for G<^- 
byes" arbd "Valotie" arc tee 
known, have the son of 
international catchioess that 
enaires t^m a welcome on 
tbe Jukebox. Unfortu- 
nate^ they are also quite 
extraordinarily bland, lacking 
any dlstinctioa other thw tbe 
signature of that fitmtliar nacal 

whine. What have not been 
carried in the genes are origi- 
nalhy, independex^ of otxi- 


look. or the gift for pungency. 

Nor is there much wit and 
charm on distday. He was 
often at a loss for an appropri- 
ate remark between songs, and 
his acceptance of bouquets 
from tbe audisore was face- 
less, as if tbe demors were 
inteiTuptiiig important busi- 
ness. The absolute confidence 
— ve^og on conceit — is 
sur^ inherited, teou^ and 
in his white cluster coat, black 
tights and boxii» boots be was 
tbe vmy mod« of an ambi- 
tious pop star, 1986-style. As 
be and his six-piece band ran 
through the standard reper- 
fenre of heavy-metal poses, 
there was never (he remotest 
feeling teat ten was being bad. 
And, un^ thou^ it may be 
to jioint it out, that is tee 
difference.

THE TIMES THURSDAY MAY 15 1986 


Two killed in I Where Duchess sleeps in private peace at Frogmo^^ 


protest over 
Pretoria move 


From Michael Hornsby, Johannesbiirg 


At least two people were 
reported to have beat killed 
and many others injured -when 
violence erupted j^rday in 
the KwaNdebele tribal home* 
land some &Q miles north-east 
of Pretoria. 

The trouble seems to have 
started when police and sol- 
diers buried tcaig^ canisters 
into buses carrying people 
from a mass meeting called to 
protest against the intention of 
I^toria to declare Kwa- 
Ndebele an **iDdepe]idenr 
state. 

Last week President Botha 
and Mr Simon Skosana, 
KwaNdebde's chief minister, 
announced in a joint state- 
ment that the homeland 
would become independent 
on December 11, a move 
which could put in question 
its inhabitants* continued 
South African citizenship. 

In one of the incidents 
reported yesterday, a youth 
was run over and seriously 
injured when a bus went out of 
control after its driver had 
leapt out to escape teaigu 
fumes. The police are also said 
to have fired buckshot 

About 25,000 people assem- 
bled yesterday momi^ at the 
Imutt of a local duef near 


Siyabuswa, a duster of dusty 
administrative buildings that 
passes for the homeland's 
capital^ apparently unaware 
that permission for the meet- 
ing had been refused by the 
district magistrate. 

There was also trouble in 
KwaNdebele on Tuesday after 
the police, assisted tv tbe 
Army, used teaigas, rubber 
bullets and birdshot to di^ 
perse mourners at a funeral for 
a man alleged to have been 
murdeced Iv ^ Imbokotho, 
a vigilante groiro created last 
January by Mr Skosana. 

The authorities had ordered 
atteitdance at the funeral to be 


restricted to 50 &mly mem- 
b^ but thousands of peofde 


turned up. After the police 
action scores of youths ran 
amok, looniig and setting fire 
to shops owned by Kwa- 
Ndebele government minis- 
ters and Imbokotho members. 

The licensed thuggery of the 
Imbdrotho squads seems to 
have brought opposiUon to 
Mr Skosana's rule to a head, 
forging an unlikely alliance 
between youthful radicals op- 
posed to the whole homeland 
system and traditionally con- 
servative chie&

Senators again duck 
vote on extradition 


Ftom Michael BinyoD, Washingtoa 


The Senate foreign relations 
committee again postponed a 
vote on the An^o-US Extradi- 
tion Treaty, as Mr Tom King, 
Secretary of State for North- 
ern Ireland, returned to Brit- 
ain yester^y after a hectic 
round of lobbying here and in 
New York. 

The controversial treaty, 
which has to be ratified by the 
Senate, was not on the ^nda 
yesterday because S^ior 
Richard Lu^, the committee 
chairman, ^ believed he did 
not have the votes to approve 
it 

Britain has been pressing for 
swift ratification in the urake 
of foe Tokyo Summit dedara- 


tion on terrorism. On Tuesday 
Mr King saw three key Demo- 
cratic senators who oppose tbe 
Bill, S^tors Edward Kenne- 
dy, Christopher Dodd and 
Claiborne Pell all fiom New 
En^and slates with large Irish 
populations. 

He said afterwards he had 
been **warmly** received. He 
urged them not to water down 
the language of the trotty. 

Yesterday Mr King had a 
series of interviews with the

Yesterday was open day at Frogmore, the

Duchess of Windsor, a siqm wr e a th of 
white lilies hid a little caiuesdy on the 
newly tnmed gronnd. 

Visitors are never adnrittpd m the private 
borial j^ronnd at FVogmoie, Imt could view 
die Dnohesa'a grave, marked w^ a woodmi 
cross, from one of the pathways. Eventually 
it wiU be covered widi a flat mrauMhl ^oae 
like that on her hnshand's grave in the 
ftw^roond. 


While many of yest«day*s vhitOTS stopi^ 
to peer frw the pathway to the bnrial 
gromid wbm tbe Windsws lie, and a few 
di^hd hats, others pas^ 'by apparmidy 
ramware die significance of the fdot. 
Police stood goard by the graves to asme 
that no-one attempted to by-pass the ropes 
exdndii^ dw poblfo from the area. 

The gardens, and die mausoleura of Qoeen 
'Victoria at Frogmore, are open ^ain tofrom 
1 1 am to 7 pm, and will be open once more on 
May 21, from II am until 4 pm only.

NatWest shakes market 
with £71 4m rights issue 


By Richard Lander 
Nadmia] Westminster Bank 
yesterday laundied the biggest 
rights issue seen on the Lon- 


its diareholcters for £714 mil- 
lion to fund ‘ intenoatiottal 
expansion. The bank wants to 
reduce profits dependence on 
its British banking operations. 

The deep-discount issue, 
NatWest's second in less titan 
two years, is beii^ made on a 
onow^me basis at 200p, 
obviatu^ the need for under- 
' writing which would have cost 
the bank b e twe e n £15 millioa 
and £18 mfllion. 

The issoe means NatWest 
raised more than £2.6 
billion in new capital of 
various fbims over the p^ 
three years and imiuoves its 
key free capital ratio from 6.05 
to 7.14 per cent, close to the 
average of the three oAer 
main clearing banks. 

At the same time, NatWest 
has forecast' an interim dM- 
dend of 6.79p, a 10 per cent 
increase on last year's pay^ 
ment after adjustment for the 
issue: 

The sheer sitt of yesterday's 
issue UMric a heavy on the 
stock maiket, which has now 
been asked for more than £ 1 .5 



Lo.rd Boardman: ''ecoiioiiiy 
and sbareboldms will gain 

billion in ri^ifs money over 
the past month. The FT 30- 
share index dron^ 21.2 
points 10 1320.0, wiping'more 
than £3.6 bilJion off equity 
inices, acenirfing to Z3aia- 
stream. Shares inriatWest 
85p to 770p while other 
leading banks shed up to 35p. 

Lord Boaiidiiiaii, NatWest's 
diairman, said of the rights 
issue: **We are one of the 
world'sJeadiDgand most 
itaUe banks—Bodi our nation- 
al economy and our 
diare^lders* mterests will, in 
my opinicm, gain fixim this

Haasoa issue comprised £370 
nniiea ia orffiBary shares and 
■ reiaaiader is prefereace shares. 

Mr Charies Green, general 
rnanagpr of the bank’s frmio- 
dal contnri divisicni, said 
NatWest's tc^ priority was to 
expand its la^ of services in 
the United States into areas 
such as moitgage banking and 
commercial fimndng . 

This might be done through 
acquisitions or the expansion 
of the bank's established t»se 
in New York. He stressed 
there was no acquisition “hit 
list" and any purchase result- 
ing from the ri^ts issue might 
be a year or two away. 

“We have a stial^ for the 
development of our interna- 
tional business, but it's quite a 


lo^tenn strat^,** he aid. 

The bank's other expansion 
priorities after America are 
continental Europe and the 
Far EasL Despite the strength 
of Standard Chartered in the 
Orient, Mr Green said 
NatWest would not be at- 
tempting to outbid Lloyds. 

“We have t^uen a serious 
look at Standard on two or 
three occasions in recent 
years, but it didn't fit in with 
our iuternational plans,** Mr 
Green said. 

To underline the bank's 
desire to increase its interna- 
tional perspective it is seeking 
to list its shares on the New 
York and Tokyo stock 
exchanges. 

Looking finther ahead, Mr 
Green said NatWest also 
wants to move into the Ameri- 
can investment banking are- 
na, something it is unable to 
do at present because of the 
Glass-Steagall Act which s^- 
tates commercial and invest- 
ment banking operations. 

The bank is still awaiting a 
response from the Federal 
Reserve Board for permi^on 
to set up an international 
securities brcrirerage firm in 
New York but is hopeful of a 
positive answer.

Oil price 
drop hits 
Ultramar 

By Carol Ferguson ^ 

Ultramar, the oil and gas 
company, yesterday an- 
nounced poor first-quarter re- 
sults to March 31, 1986.' 
Pretax profit fell by 41 percent 
to £60.8 million b^use of the 
low oil price, higher financing 
costs and Averse currency 
movements. 

Turnover was down 23 per 
cent to £629 million. Oil and 
gas production was main- 
tained at the 1985 level, while 
refinery runs in Quebec were 
substantially higher than in 
the first qumier of last year. 

The second quarter is usual- 
ly seasonally the worst, but the 
company is forecasting a weak 
second quarter for other 
reasons. 

Margins in Canada were 
under pressure in Ainil and 
the terming of May as the 
mdu^ refined its stocks of 
high-cost oil but was cai^t 
out on felling product prices in 
the maikel-place. 

In the current oil industry 
climate, the company has 
taken steps to reduce costs. 


Draft Stock Exchange rules 
fall short of SIB demands 


The Stock Exchantt wiD be 
circuJaiing new draft rules to 
all member firms in the next 
few days whidi will provide 
the fiamewmk for the rt<^ting 
practices and codes of condnct 
to apply after bi| bang. 

The rules, which were for- 
mally approved in the Stock 
Exchange Council meeting on 
Tuesday, will be smit out to 
member firms either 
tommorrow or on Monday, 
with firms given eight weeks 
in which to comment The 
Exchange is hopi^ that the 
rules will be finalized by the 
end of Avgust, in tune for the 
abolition of fixed commis- 
sions and the introduction of 
dual capacity heralded by big 
bang on October 27. ' 

draft rules cover deal- 
ings in the equity, gilt-edg^ 
and fixed-interest securities 
markets and encompass pro- 
visions governing the general 
condua of busing by Stock 
Exchange firms and their 
members. 

The exchange's conduct of 
business rules are likely to 


By Lawrence Lever 

spark off heated discussions 
between the Slodt Exchange 
and the Securities and Invest- 
ments Board (SIB), the intend- 
ed watchdog over investor 
protection, on the grounds 
that they do not go far enough 
in protodirig the public 

The SIB puUished its own 
draft conduct ofburioess rules 
in Fdmiaiy, sp^Jying in 
detail rules outlawing churn- 
ing — excessive dealing — and 
excessive rJharging^ and laying 
down piooecfnres for firms to 
ensure that these rules have 
been complied with. 

The Stock Exchange howev- 
er, whidi under the new 
legislation, will be obliged ro 
provide protection equivalem 
to that prescribed 1^ SIB, has 
<^lined to matfe any spedfic 
proviaoD for these matters. 
The draft rules therefore mere- 
ly reiterate the exchange's 
existing requirement that a 
membCT firm deal to its ' 
clienfs best advantage. 

The exchange’s rules also 
disagree with the SlB*s re- 


Steinberg lifts stake in 
Mercury International 


ByTeRsnPMde 


Mr Saul Steinberg, the Unit- 
ed States cmporate raider, has 
increased his sudte in Mercury 
International Group, the in- 
vestment bank fomiM around 
S G Warburg, to 9.9 per cent 

His move coincided with 
yesterday's announcement of 
the £483 million sale 1^ 
Charter Consolidated, the 
mining ^uipment group, of 
most of its holding in the new 
securities group. 

Mr Steinb^ agreed last 
year to limit his mterest in 
MIG to less than lOpercentof 
the voting shares. 

A spokesman for Reliance 
Group, his private company, 
confirmed that the agreebient 
was still in force and added 
that the purdiase of 350,000 
slmres through the placiite and 
a further 250,000 snares m the 
market bad been made with 
the full knowledge of 
Mercury's management 

Mr David S^oley, chair- 
man of MIG, said: “I under- 
stand he participated in the 
pladng to whhin the limit of 
self-restraint whidi is of 
our arrangement with him.'* 


He added: “Charter's stake 
had been placed quite widely 
and in firm hands." 

Charter's decision to sell all 
its ordinary shares and most 
of its convertiUe preference 
shares has reduce! its MIG 
holding on a fully-diluted 
basis mm 8.8 to 0.5 per cent 
Mr Francis Howard, finance 
director at Charter, said h was 
no longer tiie ctunpany's poli- 
cy to have sudi a laige passive 
investment and that the £15.1 
million fnofit arisii^ on the 
disposal would be used to 
finance new developments. 

MIG was created last 
month through the meran of 
the merchant bank, S G 
Warburg, the stockbrokers, 
Rowe & Pitman and Mullens 
and the stocloobbers, Akroyd 
& Smithcas. It is one of the 
leading conglomerates to be 
fornted in prep arat ion for big 
bang. 

In 1984 Charter paid £17.5 
million for a 29.9 per cent 
stake in Rowe & fitman, and 
last month it subscribed an 
additional£l7.7 million when 
the merger was completed. 


i quirement for firms to obtain 
annual cliem t^reement let- 
ters, although the SIB is likely 
to back down on this, having 
received strong representa- 
tions that it should be 
i dropped. 

Nevertheless, the uneasy 
relationship between the SIB 
and the Stock Exchange is 
likely to be stradned by the 
exchange's rules. The ex- 
change resents the fact that it 
will be answerable to the SIB 
and that the SIB will have the 
power to amend its rules. 

It wiU. however, be able to 
introduce its new rules before 
(he SIB receives its i^Iatory 
powers under the Hnancial 
Services 6UL 

The provirions in the 
'exchange's rules regardug the 
publication of transactions in 
leading stocks are also likely to 
lead lo oppostion fitim intrad- 
ed market makers concerned 
'that the details of large trans- 
actions conducted above the 
prevailing market price 
should not be disclosed.

Sir Owen, who was celebrat-

A French twist to 
the dollar puzzle 


The new era of managed, but floating 
currencies has reached a cnicial si^, 
as foreign exchange market partici- 
pants are only too well aware. The 
dollar continued to claw its way back 
from the precipice yesterday, rising to 
nearly 164 yen. 

But nob^y is sure wbether James 
Baker, the US Treasury Secretary, is 
ready to offer a helping hand or to 
shove it back down again. Certainly, 
comments yesterday by Malcolm 
Baldrige, the Commerce Secretary, 
playing down the inflationary con- 
sequences of the dollar's drop and 
claiming that its fall against the yen 
had not been excessive, su^sted that 
those who want a weaker dollar still 
have a strong voice in the White 
House. 

However, Mr Baker studiously 
refrained f^m nudging the dollar 
down further in his remarks to a 
Congressional committee on Tues- 
day. 

Coupled with publicly expressed 
concern from Fkul Volcker, the 
Federal Reserve Board chairman, 
about the spe^ of the dollar's fall, this 
could be interpreted as a change of 
heart. The problem is that however 
good the Group of Five was at co- 
ordinating its actual intervention in 
the markets, it is ver^ bad inde^'at 
putting together oral intervention. It 
is hard enou^ to get a consistent story 
out of Washington, let alone one that 
fits together with what everyone else is 
saying. 

Thus, Satoshi Sumit^ Governor of 
the Bank of Japan, anxious to head off 
pressure for another cut in the 
Japanese discount rate, told a Tokyo 
audience yesterday that while the 
yen's rise had been a little fost, it 
would not substantially damage the 
economy. The Germans have been 
sitting tight, claiming they cannot cut 
interest rates while the mark remains 
near the bottom of its limits in the 
European Monetary System. 

But now the French have done their 
best to remove this roadblock to a 
further round of interest-rate cuts 
worldwide. In Paris yesterday, Societe 
Generale led a round of base rate cuts 
from 10.1 to 9.6 per cent So London's 
base rate optimists, who were pusbii^ 
money maritei rates down again 
yesteri^y, may have a point The 
French base rate reductions coincided 
with a provisional estimate from the 
Nations Statistics Institute that the 
rate of inflation dropped to 2.5 per 
cent last month, the lowest since the 
mid-Sixties. Britain's retail price fig- 
ures, out tomorrow, will show a rate 
somewhat above this, probably a little 
over 3 per cent, but still low enough to 
provide quite an argument for a base 
rate cut 

Woolworth in focus 

In the battle by Woolworth Holdings 
against the unwelcome bid by Mr 
Stanley Kalms' Dixons electricals 
chain much has been heard about the 
new Woolworth strategy, focused on 
six tidy key product areas. Today the 
20th store revamped under 
Woolworth's ‘'Operation Focus" 
opens in York. This could provide the 


most detailed insight so far into the 
changes. 

A dozen stores have been operating 
with the new format since last 
autumn, and these are said to have 
improved gross margins by between 3 
and 5 per cent These increases are on 
top of the chain's overall gross margin 
improvements. Cash growth at the 
gross level has been as much as 39.5 
per cenL It will further be claimed that 
profits per square foot of selling space, 
which stood at £7.35 before any rental 
payments in the past full year, could 
go to about £20 by the end of 1 988 as 
the Woolworth strategy takes full 
effecL That would approach tiie 
‘ current performance of Boots. But it 
would be a long way behind that of 
Marks and Spencer or indeed that of 
Dixons. The Woolwonh defetus is 
that smaller types of stores, with all 
their offerings within a few yards of 
the front door, naturally achieve sales 
at a higher intensity throughout their 
space. 

The average customer spend, long a 
problem for Woolworth, im- 
proved in the new stores by 65 p^ 
cent, so the claim goes. The spend is 
now put at “well over £3.” 

A more recent example of bow the 
new Woolworth strate^ is faring has 
been the opening of the relaunched 
Northampton store at the beginning 
of this month. In the first week sales 
were up 46 per cent, even though a 
quarter of the ^lier turnover was 
wiped out by the withdrawal of lines 
like food and some adult clothing. 
Sales in the newly-focused depart- 
ments doubled. All this, it is claimed, 
without much help from beavywei^t 
promotion which has yet to take 
effect 

Woolworth plans to spend £43 
million this year and £50 million in 
each of the next two years in 
relaunching some 800 stores under 
Operation Focus. i 

One option under consideration in 
some locations is for satellite stores to 
be opened near an existing main 
Woolworth's. These satellites would 
concentrate on only one of the six 
focus sectors. This echoes not dissimi- 
lar plans already announced by Marks 
and Spencer for satellite outlets. 

Changeover in merchandising, 
concentrating on the six target areas, 
will be completed by next spring in 
200 relaunched bigger shopping- 
comparison stores in larger towns and 
cities and another 600 smaller stores. 

The six areas in focus in them will 
be Kids, now being described by Mr 
Mike Sommers, Woolworth's market- 
ing director, as a “fun Mothercare"; 
Gifts and Sweets; Entertainment, 
aiming for consumers over a wider age 
range including youi^ families; 
Kitchen Shop; Home and Garden; 
and Looks, including cosmetics. 

The Woolworth aim in these areas 
is to offer the best value and range on 
the high street. Yet with Kids it will be 
up against Marks and Spencer as well 
as Mothercare. And its profit taiget of 
£20 a square foot is a tou^ one: 
Woolworth does, after all, have rather 
more than 7 million square feet of 
space.

Surprise recovery at 
Commercial Union 


‘Commerrial Union Assur- 
ance has been about to tum 
up ipr so loiu that when h 
produces evidence of recov- 
as it did yesterday, few 
believe., that change is under- 
way. Though the company 
rqsorted a £30 mUlion swing 
» I in first-quarter pretax profits 
* to £12.4- million the shares 
feH 2p to 327p. - 
The results bore a remark- 
»le tesembiance to ih^ of 
General Accident Fire & Life, 
which also announced its ' 
results for the three months 
to March 31- At GA there 
was a £23.7 million swing to 
pretax profhs of £5.1 mU^n. 

Bott companies repotted 
big increases in premium 
rales^and CU is also benefit- 
ing nom last year^ cut ba^ 
10 America. Its US losses fell 
from £31.7 million to 
miUioo, but the US under- 
writing loss of £3S millirtn, 
down nom £66 millioa, stiU 
accounted for more than half 
the tola! underwritiiig deficit 
of £64 million, down from 
£100 million. 

ClTs Hie profits rose from 
£16.7 million to £18.0 million 
but investment income fell 
from £6S million to 
miliioD. 

At GA the underwfituig 
loss fell from £77.7 million to 
£63.5 million. It says 
home motor accoust is siffl 
difficult and .so far this year it 
to increased rates by 8 per 
cent, but another hike looks 
likely. GA's small life busi- 
ness profits rose and its 
investment income increased 
from ' £57 inilliu! to 
million. 

' Both compames were hh 
^ the severe winter weather. 
CU said this cost it £12 
million, up from £9 million 
whereas GA said it cost £20 
million, whii^ was lit^ 
changed. 

.CU cteisns that it has' no 
of a rights .issue but the 
fear of one is likdy to 
overhang the market for 
some time. On the other hand 
yesterday's results make it 
likely .that CU will increase 
this y^'s dividend to say 
1 5p,makittg the yield 6.6 per 
cent, against GA's prospro- 
live yield of 4. 1 per cent with 
the shares at 847p;. That 
premium could well narrow 
m coming months. 

Land Secnrities 

Year-end results to March 3! 
for Land Securities. — . Bri- 
tain's largest property rompar 
nyapd r^arded as the bari>r 
meter of the sector — .are 
broadly in line whh expecta- 
tions. lowing few surjHises. 

The ponfcriio, which is 
weighted towards Gty and 


West End offices, is valued at 
£2.54 billimi, a net increase of 
3:3 per cent, and the net asset 
value is up tv 4.7 per cent to 
420p per share. 

The compare has refur- 
bished one million sq ft of its 
Gty portfolio, virtually 
all the space let fKJeinwon 
Benson, the merchant bank, 
is likely to be tbe next tenant 
— for space at Fenchurch 
Street). This has been reflect- 
ed in rental income for the 
yev which shows net rents 
rising to £134 million from 
£1 14.9 milHon for the previ- 
ous year. 

But some property values 
outside the Gty and West 
End have been foiling, a 
factor reflected in dull revalu- 
ation figures. 

Land Securities' late move 
into the retail warehouse 
market should give it healthy 
returns in a sector where 
yields have been rising. It has 
£72 million in investments 
and devdopments, with po- 
tential to reach £100 mfllion. 

The company is looking for 
more development onmrtun- 
ities in the City West 
End, a policy which will hdp 
to dispel its rather dull image, 
it could bea contender forthe 
- City Corporation's Boys 
School site and was interested 
in the Post Office site at St 
Mardns-lfrrGraDd, now being 
developed by British and Jw 
anese interests. 

Land Securities does not 
want development partners, 
preferring to do fewer 
schemes where it retains afi 
profits. Grand Buildup in 
Trafoigar Square will be a 
larp prqject, but rdatively 
chap compared «nth new 
Gty schemes where Land 
Seouities has to buy the site, 
despite a loss of income dur- 
ing redevelopment 
The company has raised 
three tranches ofmone^ since 
last November, giving it £300 
milUtm of finance at fovour- 
able rates. It does not rule out 
foe possibility of returning 
for more, a situation which 
the market will accept hapi^ 
ly jn a company with conser- 
vative borrowings. 

It is trading at a 25 per cent 
discount to net asset value, 
unlike some of tbe foshion- 
able property trading compa- 
nies where i^emiums are the 
piidCT. of the day. 

Charies Barker 

Charles Baiker, the adverds- 

S id puWc relations firm 
is coming to market 
this month, is believed to 
have had its origins in 1812 
with an early connection with 
this newspaper. 


Charles Barker, aged 31. 
formed a joint venture with 
die Primer of The Times to 
produce a newsletter contain- 
ing selected items from The 
Times to be distributed to 
newspaper publishers around 
tbe country. For the first time 
provincial newspapers were 
able to pubb'sh up-to-date 
information at the time The 
Times reached the provinces. 

As the telegraph companies 
took over the cfisseminarion 
of the ne^ Charies Baofoeris 
/tt/soff if Trrf disappeared. But 
tbe advertising business built 
up through the original news- 
l^r flourished, and today it 
accounts for about 50 per 
. cent of the company's operat- 
ing profit 

A further 25 per cent of 
operating income comes 
fimn public relations and the 
rest from human resources, 
indudiDg staff recruitment 
and training, and below-tlie- 
line services. 

Just over five million 
shares — 25 per cent of the 
company — are being offered 
for sale at 150p each, valui 
the company at j^2 m 
lion. Many of the skiers are 
institutional shareholders 
who owned about 58 per cent 
of the issued riiare capital 
before the sale. 

Of the shares being sold, 
1-2 miUion are part of tbe 
consideratioa for the recent 
acquisition of Norman 
Broadbent International, a 
leading executive search con- 
sifoancy. Tbe final consider- 
ation depend on foture 
profits. 

Charies Bariosr does not 
provide a profit finecast in 
the prospectus. On earnings 
per share <^8.Sp for the year 
10 December 31, 1985, foe 
shares are being offered on a 
hisUiric p/e rotmiple of 182. 

In 1986 a 20 per cent 
increase in pn^ profit 
£4.3 minion is tik^ to prove 
conservative in view iff the 
spectacular progrem shown in 
foe five-yem* li^ng reoortL 
In addition, the tax charge is 
likely to foil is l986toamore 
normal level of 42 per cent 
compar^ with a SO per cent 
cbai^ in 1985 because of 
disallowed office refurbish- 
ment costs. 

Hie prospective multiple 
couid foil to 13 or 14, iiilly. 
diluted. 

Advertising, public rela- 
tions and executive search 
are enjoying something of a 
boom. These activities may 
not do so well in an economic 
downturn, but Charles Bark- 
er will claim some cushion m 
financial public relations 
where demand for hs services 
is likely to explode after tbe 
City's big bang. 


STOCK MARKET REPORT 


Cash call sends indexes tumbling 


A record-breaking rights is- 
sue of more than £700 milHon 
fiom NatWesi sent shock 
waves through stock markets 
yesterday. 

The FT 30-share tumbled 
by 212 points to 1,320.0, 
while the FT-SE 100 index 
ended 29.0 points down at 
1,594.3. 

Although the issue was on 
‘*bonus” lenns and the 
chairman's accompanying 
statement was encoura^ng, 
NatWest tumbled by 8Sp to 
770p. taking other clearers 
down by between 20p and 33p

digesting the £86 mfllion cash 
call announced on Tuesday by 
Bnrmali, 6p lower at 348p. BP 
at 563p and Shell 763p, both 
slipp^ about 6p ahead of 
today's quarteriy statements 
and dirappointing fibres 
from Ultramar knocked 8p 
Groin the share price to I81p. 

A return (o profits by Com- 
mercia] Union and Gen^ 
Accident did little for the 
insurance sector. CU eased a 
peony to 328p, while GA fell 
Up to 844p. Royal, reporting 
today, declined l^ 15p to 
939p. 


In complete contrast, the 
dollar-supponing statements 
from Mr Votcker and Mr 
Baker on T uesday prompted a 
rally in US bonds which, in 
tum, prompted gains of more 
ifaanfl in gilts. 

Elsewhere. Tuesday's new- 
found confidence was quickly 
eroded, with dealers fearing 
yet further big funding opera- 
tions. Jobbers marked prices 
lower from tbe outset in most 
sectors. 

A subsequent modest rally 
failed to hold and by the 
official close prices bad drifted 
back to their lowest levels of 
the day. Breweries, stores and 
electricals gave back most of 
Tuesday's rises. 

Builders were no worse than 
mixed, but newcomer

Shell loans to aid 
small businesses 

By Derek Harris, Indnstrial Editor 


Shell UK, tbe oil comply, 
is putting up £500.000 in a 
trail-blazer scheme to help 
mostly young people up to 25 
trying to start or expand foeir 
own small businesses. 

Loans of up to £5,000 will 
attack foe most difficult area 
of the equity gap. This is 
created by a dearth of venture 
capital for businesses needing 
funding below £50,000. but 
tbe problem is espeoally in- 
tense for those needing less 
than £10.000. 

With interest at about I per 
cent over bank base rates the 
Shell loans will also be cheaper 
than those available under the 
Government's re-shaped 
Loan Guarantee Scheme, 
winch by partially underwrit- 
ing bank loans also attempts 
to bridge the equity gap.

Norway urges UK 
to cut oil output 

By David Yoang, Energy Correspondent 


Nonvay is calling on Britain 
to join it in adopting a new 
policy of co-operation with the 
Organization of Petroleum 
Beponing Countries in limit- 
ii^ oil output to help push the 
world price back upw^s. 

The Nonv^an Govern- 
ment, annount^ on Tuesday 
a change in its policy towards 
Opec. . 

The Department of 
Eneisr's view is that is that oil 
output in the North Sea is a 
matter for the oil companies 
and not for the Government, 
and this is unlikely to change. 

However, an acceleration of 
maintenance programmes in 
the Nonh Sea this summer 
could slow down production 
from the North Sea, with 
many within Opec consider- 
ing that such a move will be 


Government-inspired so that 
it is not seen to make any 
public change in its stance, 

Britain is now the only oil 
exporter which has not 
reached an inform^ agree- 
ment with OpM and there are 
now expectations foat foe 
Opec ministerial meeting in 
Brioni, Yugoslavia, next 
month could reach a new 
production-sharing agreement 
involving all its 13 member 
countries as well as foe noo- 
Opec producers apart from 
Britain. 

Continued refusal by Brit- 
ain to join (3pec in an infor- 
mal a^eemenl could lead to

The retail prices index tends- 
to overstate the true rate of 
inflation, according lo a report 

published yesterday tv the 

Institute for Fiscal Studies. 

In two areas, the 
weights used in the construc- 
tion of the RPI and foe 
ueatment of housing, the in- 
dex is biased upwards, foe 
report says. 

This could result in ht^er 
public spending fo^ is neces- 
sary, through social security 
and other upraiings; it could 
boost wage increases, vrifo 
negotiators often emphasizing 
the RPI: and it could give rise 
to misleading calculations of 
real rates of return. 

Most important, at a time 
when retail price inflation is 
the key target of government 
policy, an that overstates 
inflation could result in un- 
necessary tightness of policy. 

In their first area of criti- 
cism foe authors. Mr Panos 
Ra^rdes and Miss Vanessa 
Fry. look at foe weights used 
in the calculation of foe RPI. 
These are based on foe annual 
Family Expenditure Survey 
and. fairoause of foe time taken 
to process the FES data, are a 
year out of date when first 
brought into use and nearly 
two years out of date when 
replac^ by new weights. 

This means there is no 
allowance made in foe RPI for 
foe fact that people will adjust 
their spending in response to 
price changes. 

The aufoors compared foe 
published index with what it 


RETAIL PRICE INFLATION 

% change over 12 mormis 



1975 1976 1977 1978 1979 1980 1981 ’1982 1983 


would have been h^ up-to- 
date weights been av^able at 
foe time. The effoct was 
predictable: foe RPI, by foOing 
fo allow for switdies in expen- 
diture, overstated inflation. 

The biggest diveigebce be- 
tween published and updated 
iaflation rates occuired be- 
tween January 1 977 and Janu- 
ary 1978. The published rate 
was 9.9 per cent and the 
updated rate 9.1 per cenL 

To avoid such divergences, 
the IFS says, the Department 
of Employment shoidd ^vel- 
op a model to predict changes 
in expenditure patterns. 

A more dramatic change in 
methods is proposed for foe 
RPPs treatment of housing. 
The present use of mortgage 
rates as the main measure of 
foe costs of owner-occupation 
is inadequate, the report says. 

The 1F$ suggests an alterna- 
tive. which would include 
both mortgs^ rates and a 
measure of capital gains or 
losses on housing. Capital 


gains are treated as windfall 
income, and therefore act to 
of&et foe costs of buying a 
home as measured by mort- 
gage interest payments. 

Hie effects of indudipg a 
capital gain/loss factor in the 
RPI can be dramatic parties 
lariy when the rise or fall in 
house prices is out of step with 
other price movements. . 

The report's third area of 
criticism is on whether the 
RPI is repre^tativc The IFS 
says foe weights used in the 
RPI are biased towards the 
better-off households, because 
foe weighting is itself deter- 
mined 1^ amounts spent . 

This Ikb the effea of pulling 
foe RPI in foe other direction 
to the U^s other main criti- 
dsms. Pom* households have 
tended to suffer bigger in- 
erdses in their cost of living 
than foe rich, 'but this has not 
been fully reeled in retail 
price infiatipn.

Leasing industry gains 
£1.7bn new business 


By Derek Harris, Indnstrial Effitor 


The equipment leasing busi- 
ness is holding up despite 
inimical Budget changes two 
years ago. The first quarter of 
this year has seen £1.7 billion 
in new business — not far short 
of foe record £2 billion in foe 
corresponding period last 
yev. 

This was announced at the 
annual dinner in London of 
the-Equipmern Leasing Asso- 
ciation by its chairman.. Mr 
David Bi^ver, who said that 
last year association members 
had leased ncariy £6 billion of 
plant and equipment, a 43 per 
cent increase over 1984. 

Mr Beever said that with the 
progressive reduction in tax 
and the 1984 Budget phasing 
out first-year capital allow- 
ances on machinery and plant, 
the leasing industry bad 
brought in exceptionally com- 
petitive rates, making leasing 
a more attractive option. 

New products and services 


had also been introduced 
which, linked to more muscu- 
,lar mariceting, had helped 
leasing to an increased maikei 
share. 

But Mr Beever gave a 
warning that foe 1984 tax 
changes could still have a 
native effect on the indus- 
try. "Id seeking to remove foe 
previous fi^ bias in fttvdur 
of investment, the balance 
may have been tipped too far 
foe other way." 

Studies carried out for foe 
assodation had pointed to foe 
tax changes having an adverse 
effect on new capital invest- 
ment in foe longer term. 

Mr Bwver forecast that 
leasing was Likely to be used to 
finance hew types of assets, 
including builmng.

Lloyds shakeup promises 
profitable spin-offs 


By Jndith Hmitley 

Lloyds Bank, which an- 
nounced plans this week to 
reorganize all its Gty office 
space, ' is likely to ocouw 
250.000 ^ ft in Browte^ the 
2.5 million sq ft fraaodal 
centre beiM developed by 
Rosehau^ Stanhope at Liver- 
pool Street on the eastern ed^ 
of the. Square Mile. 

Uoyds Merdiant Bank and 
suifT involved in market>inak- 
ing could' take phase four of 
the scheme in about two years, 
joining Security Pacific, 
Shearson Lehman American 
Express and the Union -Bank 
ofSwitzeriand. 

Neither the bank nor the 
tetUng agents, Jones Lang 
Wootton. Healey & Baker and 
Matthews Goodman, would 
comment on the move. Rents 
in Broadgate are over a so- 
ft. 

Lloyds*s headquarters at 
Lomb^ Street close to the 
Bank of En^and, will remain 
in use after refurtnshment and 
Lloy^ Merchant Bank will 
continue to occupy 40 Queen 
Victoria Street at least until 
the new City office is rea<^. 

However, the first stage of 
Lloyds's move from 23 <mces 
scattered about the Gty will 
be to occupy 160,000 sq ft in 
the Hays C^leria on 

the south side of the Thames, 
close to London Bridge in & 
Martins Property Coip- 
oiatibn*s one million u ft 
London Bridge City 
development 

The quoted rentȣ16asq 
ft for the q»ce, say the letting 
agents, Baker Harris Saunders 
and Jones Lang WooOon. 

Lloyds is also decentraliaing 
700 staff serving its trarldwide 
banking netwcm to Bristol,

Londtm Boroogfa of Ealing.

with existing buildings in or 
near the Square Mile. 

Meanwtuie, Wales City of 
London ftopenies, the only 
quoted iwopeny company 
with an entire portfolio of City 
of London offices, must be 
feeling pleased ihal Uoyds has 
finally decided to rewganize 
its City offices. 

It is likely that the bank will 
dispose of its lease on 80 
Chroi^de, formerly occupied 
by Lloyds Bank Iniernational, 
now merged with Uoyds 
Bank. Wales owns the build- 
ing which forms a crucial part 
ofits plans to redevdop foe 
site with 136.000 sq ft of 
offices and 15,000 sq ft of 
retailing It is valued at about 
£10 miuion but that will soar 
once Wates can redevelop foe 
entire sit& 

The property abuts the 
buildings owned by Mr Peter 
Palumbo, who is about to 
unveil his new plans for a 
redevelopment dose to foe 
Mansitm House (his former 
project to build a skyscraper 


on foe site %vas turned down). 

Meanwhile, Wales is turn- 
ing its attention to Vintiy 
Housed on foe City side of 
Southwark Bridge. 

The developer has been 
asked by Its owner, foe Vint- 
ners Company, to determine 
foe dewlopment potentid of 
foe riverside building. Wales 
hopa to put in a planning 
application to the City Corpo- 
tafion by the summer, and foe 
City planers will soon be 
asked to approve the 
company’s plans to redevelop 
Winchester House in Old 
Broad Street, foe offices it 
owns with Friends Provident 
Ufe Office. 

That could result in foe 
demolition of the building, 
bot^t ftom the St Martins 
Property Corporation for £65 
milUon. and its repbcement 
by 400,000 sq ft of new space. 

The bullishness of foe City 
office market is such that 
Wales says it has already had 
potetuid occupiers lining t^ 
for V^diesier House. Ifot it 


is foe de^^opers who are 
lining up to win foe tender to 
develop the former City of 
London Bo)s School over- 
looking foe river close to 
Blackfnars. 

The City Cmporalion will 
choroe foe suKessful bidder at 
foe end of next week. The 
need to find a large amount of 
new office space before big 
bang gets under way is such 
that owner-occnpiers are 
among those wanting the Boys 
School site. Goldman Sachs, 
foe American finance bouse, 
and Morgan Guaranty join 
London & Edinburgh Trust 
among others in foe bidding. 

Earlier attempts to sell tte 
site came to nothing as foe 
office market would not sup- 
port a development in that 
location. Tlm« have chan^ 
and the impact of financial 
deregulation has caused a 
boom in office development 
in and around the Square 
Mil^ forcing occupiers to look 
outside naditianal areas for 
foe kind of space they need. 


‘No easy 
money’ in 
financial 
services 

New players in foe financial 
services industry will have to 
pay a high admission price 
whb no easy money to be 
made. This timely wamh^ 
was given 1^ Lord Boardman. 
chairman of National West- 
minster Bank, to foe London 
conference of foe Incorporat- 
ed Sodeiy of Valuers and 
Auctioneers. 

Lord Boardman said estate 
agents wanting to become 
draible players in their own 
account would have to make 
“a o gniRcani investment in 
capital and people**. 

**There is no certaiow foal 
the retorn will jtisti^ foe 
substantial outlay involved. 
Intense competition is a fea- 
ture of all sectors of foe 
financial services industry.** 
While agreeing that there 
would always be a place for 
firms who concentrate on 
their existing business. Lord 
Boardman said diems could 
he lost to other firms which 
h^ used their strengfos as a 
base for diversification. 

More warnings for survey- 
ors came from 1^ David 
Sizer, a senior partner in 
Richard Elli& the firm of 
chartered surv^ors. He fore- 
saw a polarization between the 
small surefooted entreim- 
nenrial partnership and foe 
growing commercial dout of 
foe la^. probably interna- 
tional, agen^ ofiering a range 
of services. 

Mr Sizer believed foe mid- 
dle-ranking firms would lose 
out He said: ‘'They are just 
too big to seize opportunities 
as fast as their smaOer compet- 
iiOTS and not large enough to 
offer the range of services or. 
carry the re^areh and infor- 
mation base ofTeied by larger 
firms". 

Meanwhile, foe great debate 
continues over whether sur- 
veyors should become incor- 
porated once rules allow. The 
argument hin^ on whether 
ll^ need outside capital Mr 
Sizer believes they do. 

"It has been a lack of 
capital, rather than any single 
other l^or that ! believe 
held back the broader devd- 
opment of many otherwise 
highly successful professional 
surveying pracbccs,** be said.

THE TIMES THURSDAY ^4AY 15 1986 


HORIZONS^ 


A guide to 
career choice 


In search of the r^t advice 


Some years ago when I was working 
ovnseas on a ravemmat aid pnyect an 
acquaintance decided to lake me down a 
ptt or nvo. 

He related how he had recently 
attended a meeting with various govern* 
ment oflicials during which he hid tried 
to sell some of his company's inoducis. 

The disenssion was fonfari^t and 
during it he notic^ a quiet, unassumi^ 
European at the end of the table who said 
nothing. My friend sought to bring him 
into tbe deltberatfons. 


Experts are more than 
convaiient titles for 
ove rseas posts paid for 
by a donor country. 


You too, win have y^ share of 
frustrations which are diSerent from 
those encountered at home thou^ not 
necessarily more numenHs. Inadequate 
eomunications and bureaucratic delays 
are the proUems most expatriates have 
to coflimid with. 


Roger Jones considers 
what it is the experts are 


**Oh. don't bother about him,*' retort- 
ed tbe ebainnaa. "He's only ourexpea" 
At that time I was Messed wxdi the 
labd ^expert'. It was just a emvenient 
thle to descrite virtuaOy everyone vdiose 
sdary was being paid by a donor coontry. 

However, unlike the gentieman in ^ 
story, 1 believe * was making a useful 
oontritadOD to tbe bost oountiy laiber 
than just being a status symbol 
This story came hack to me as 1 was 
dmichig at a handboMc . from the 
^erseas Development Administration 
deling with oppCHtunities overseas mtb. 
intemationM organizations, such as the 
World Ba^ and the OECD. It would 
appear that a wide ra^ of specialisms is 
required — from statisticians to seismol- 
(^sts and social welfare adidsers. 

Tbe belief that working overwas is a 
young person's game is scolded in these 
yp ys- International organisations are 
much more interested in matority ai^ 
experience which can only be finmd m 
the 40 to 70 age group. 

Such news ml offer encoorageineDt to 
UK citizens vriio have been turned down 
for jobs at home because they are "too 
old". 


setting out to achieve 



However much you might yearn to 
crack the whip, you have to You 
are not in a portion to give CHtlers.and if 
you attempt to do so yon will encounter 
hostility. 

Your task is to assist and advise, and 
this involves tbe virtues of tact and 
patience. 

It is, of course, dangCRMis to generalise 
about tbe nature of an expert's role^ smoe 
assignments can differ, and so can the 
levd td'soithistication tbe countries to 
vdiicfa one is sent. It is vital to ensure you 
are properly briefed about yoor ta^ 

It is advisable to aapine as mueb 
knqvdedge about die lo^ people and 
tb^ customs. You won't make a 
favourtdrie iminessioa with a . strim 
Muslim, for exam^ if you down 
several double toandies in his presence. 

What kind of people are xequiied for 
intematioi^ assignments of this natnxe? 
ImerestUigly, the ODA are more specific 
about the ty^ of peraon for wiiicn mere 
are few openii^ in this fidd, notably, 
i^ustiial executives and retired ofBoeis 
from the armed forces. 


You do not necessarily need plenty of 
overseas experirace to be considered for 
A post of tnb kind. I remember coming 
across an elderly cotton technologist in 


Another attribnte is the abiti^ to 
r^ie your knowledge and experienoe to 
the ne^ of your host country. Runnii^ 
a library in tbe tropics presents certain 
problems unlik^ to be found in a 
resem^ fibraiy in the UK, for instance. 


There are a few drawbacks with fins 
kind of emidoyment, even if yon can 
o^ ap^rqiHiate sldDs and experience: 
Fir^ It is of a temporary n a tur e, and 
there is no guarantee of anotho: contract 
when you complete your ament one. 
Seconmy, the recruitment process is 
likely to.take montbsmther than weeks, 
so as international organizations are 
concerned, but in the case of ODA- 
bacted aid projects decisions are made 
much more quickly. 


A wide range of specialists 
are still called for overseas 


South-East Asia who had hardly ever left 
tbe UK be^ taking up his assignmeDt 
Yet he was making a gnrat success of his 
project and finding the experience both 
exmlaratittg and woitbwhue. 

He had realized ^m the start that 
wprkiiig in overseas aid is very difierent 
from bang employed in a company in 
Britain wnm your position tends to be 
ci^y d^n^ In many cases you are 
pi^onning a training fii^on to ensure 
that a local can take over your responsi- 
l^ities udien you leave. 

The booklet suggests that an expert has 
to be something of a salesinan or 
missionary — this is a point to ponder. It 
is important to communicate effectively 
with tbe people you are workuig with, 
which is not as easy as it sounds given tbe 
posribility of linguistic and cultnral 
barriers. But, if you can persuade others 
your id^ are their own, you are 
heading for success. ' 


There your concern might be not 
which computerized cbecking-oul sys- 
tem to mstall but how to stop cockroach- 
es devouring the bools. 


It is vital to receive a fall

A good woridng rdationship wifii your

not uiideresitnate eitber their skills or

In many cases the locals have tbe 
capacity to cany out a certain project, 
but lack the confidence to do so...

involved.

FK 


By Michael Seely 
Shahrasiani put up a work- summed 
man-iike rather than smpres- those ' 
sive Derby tria! when beating Shahrasi 
Nomrood by a length and a Derlw v 
half in the Mccca-E)ante the sar 
Stakes at > otic yesterday and Swinbur 
remains at cramped odds of Michael 


between 4-1 and 7-2 for 
Epsom with most firms of 
bockmakers. 

Walter Swinbum sent the 
11-10 on tavourite past the 
pacemaking Dancing Zeia 
halfway up the siraigbL Both 
Nomrood and Sirk launched 
determined attacks in the last 
furiong. but Shahrasiani kept 
battling away and never 
looked like surrendering his 
lead. 

*‘Ke puts on the brakes 
. when he gels in front.'’ 
% Swinbum said. “He thinks 
he's done enough. However, 
he's got 2 relaxed style of 
racing and t*m sure he'll stay a 
mile and a haif. All the same. 1 
wish he had won by 10 
lengths,*' 

The last pan of the jockey’s 
comments must have 




summed up the feelings of all 
those who wish to see 
Shahrasiani repeat the 1981 
I^by victory of She^r for 
the same combination of 
Swinburn, the Aga KJtan 
Michael Siouie. 

"I'm glad that it is over and 
done with," the trainer said 
afterwards. "It is a bit worry- 
ing that Sirk finished closer 
today than be did at Sandown. 
But it is stUJ one of the 
established trials and 
Shahrasiani has won it" 

Paul Cole was delighted 
with the performance of 
Nomrood. "I've got three 
Derby possibles in Nomro^ 
Tisn’t and Nisnas. We'll have 
to divide them up between 
Epsom and Chantilly." 

Watching the vid^ record- 
ing of the race, Shahrastani 
won a trifle more comfortably 
than had at first appear^ and 
if the brilliant Dancing Brave 
failed to stay the distance, the 
Nijinsky colt could still be the 
one that they all have to beat 
on the day.

Shahrastani draws dear of Nomrood and Strk in York’s Meoca-Dante Stakes 


All eyes will now be turned 
to the Curragh on &iucday 
when Floravanii's mettle will 
be tested against Green Desert 
and Hunungdale in the Irish 
ZOOO Guineas. The remaining 
clues may be unearthed at 
Goodwood next Wednesday 
when Allez Milord, Jareer and 
Tanaos are already under 
orders for the Predominate 
Stakes. 

The value of Allea Milord's 
Newmarket win was de- 
stroyed twice during the aficr- 
noon, first when All Haste 
finished last in the Mecca- 
Danie and earlier w'faen 


Verardi had finished unplaced 
behind Kadial. who ran out an 
impressive winner of the Glas- 
gow Maiden Stakes for Fulke 
Johnson Houghton. 

The Aga Khan has certainly 
bred some hi^Kla^ middle 
distance animals in recent 
years and like Shahrastani, 
Kadial looks all set to follow 
in their footsteps. **I think 
Kadial might be a bit imma- 
ture for Epsom,*" the trainer 
said. *‘We might send him to 
Ascot for the l^g Edward VII 
Stakes and then, if he proves 
good enough, for the Irish 
Derby.”

KavfDg beateo last year’s 
t>erby wiann. Slip Aneber, in 
the Jockey Gab Stakes at 
Newmarket 13 days ago, 
Phardante now looks poised to 
Sft tbe Vorkshire Cop at Vorfc 
this afternoon. 

While conceding that that 
result at Newourket was pardy 
attribouble to a fine tactical ride 
by Grerifle Starkey, who let Slip 
Anchor and Seismic Wave tire 
one another oot before nnleash*- 
ing bis own challenge, it still 
said a lot for Pbardante. And, let 
ns not forget, that he did manage 
to stake that remarkable filly. 
Oh So Sharp, poll oot aO die 
stops towards the end of last 
year's & Leger. 

lA that sect of form, 
PHARDANTE sboold prove 
h^ to beat ^ain over a 
distance he deariy relishes, 
althOB^ on 3Ib better terms. 
Seismic Wave is likely to give 
him a much harder time this 
time because it is conunon 
knowledge he needed the 
race at N’ewmarkeL 

Eastern Mystic, who was 
beaten 10 lengths when only 
fbnrth to Valnahle Witness in 
the Sagaro Stakes at Ascot, now 
looks too dose to a horse of 
Phardanie's ability at a dif- 
ference of only 31b. Bat lAmg- 
boat is Quite capable of inaknv a 
race of it with my selection even 
tbongh he has oot rnn this 
season. Last year be won the 




Sagaro Slakes first time oot 
before going oa to finish second 
in the Ascot Cold Cup. 

X’ainglorioiis, ftotn Henry 
Candy's Kingstone W'arreo 
yard, will be expected to make a 
bold show in the Norwest Holst 
Trophy foUowuq; that giMMl run 
in Uie 2,000 Guineas. How- 
ever, I have no intention of 
looking farther than 
RESOURCEFLIL FALCON 
because 1 have been waiting for 
bim ever since 1 noticed him 
nmning sneb a nice race in the 
Craven Stakes in which be 
eventnally finished sixth behind 
Dancing Brave. 

A slight knock prevented 
Resonreefni Falcon from 
contesting a similar race to 
today’s at Newmarket on 2JKiO 
Gnmeas day, bat Peter Makin. 
his miner, assured me that be is 
fine again now and expected to 
go dose. 

Orojoya and Grey Desire, who 
finisb^ second and fbnrth. 
re$|Kctivdy, in tbe Fairey 
Sprite Trophy at Haydock 12 
days ago, club again in the 
Dnke of York Stakes in nhicb 
Grey Desire was ranner-np to 
Chapel Cottage 12 months ago. 
At Haydock there was two 
lei^ths beeweea them, so with 
the conditions now Eavonring 
Grey Desire to the tone of 51b it 
should be mneb tighter this timeu 

In the drenmstanees it may 
well pay to took elsewhere for 


tfie likely winner and go instead 
for HALLGATE, who reverts to 
sprinting having blatantly failed 
to last further in the 2J)00. 

At (he earlier .Newmarket 
meeting Pubby and Witchcraft 
finifch^ first and second at the 
end of a handicap over a mile 
and a half. On 31b better terms, 
Witcher^ now has a good 
chance of gening his revenge, 
hot I still prefer PUBBY, who 
has rnn away with an 
apprentices' race at Ascot in the 
meantime and is not penalized 
for that. 

Anyooe who was at Salisbnry 
eight days ago could not have 
fiuled to be impressed by the 
way that both Kedron and 
Ambrosini stamped their 
aulbority on their respective 
races. It seemed to me that 
KEDRON bad the harder task, 
SO he is taken to win the 
S^rboron^ Handicap Stakes, 
even though his weight incindes 
a penalty whereas Ambrosinfs 
does not. 

Finally. NINO BIBBIA is 
today’s nap to win tbe Blackbird 
Skakes at Sandown Park this 
erening. 

After watching him vnn 
so nicely at Newmarket a fort- 
night ago. 1 decided to follow 
hi^ I do so with confidence 
today, even though he is opposed 
by Vianora. who has come good 
at Kempton and Lin^eld 
reeearty.

against Donald Curry, Ae worid 
chamiHon. even though he has 
still to beat the World Boxing 
Council No 1. Hmaoe Shufibrd, 
in a find eliminator at Wembley 
Arena on May 20. 

From the way his m anager . 
Mickey Dnfil was talking ye^ 
teiday. it was almost as if 
Sfauffoid. ^ed 33; was here to 
merdy make up the numbers. 
Spealung as though Shufibrd 
was not even in the same room. 
Duff said he would be gotx^ 
immediately after Ae bout to 
talk to ■Cuny'i Tnanager, Mike 
Trainer, about , the Ai^pion 
coming to Wembley on •Septem- 1 
ber30. 

It Ad not matter if American 
television had not been tied iq>. 
There were other ways of find- ^ 
ing the kind of nran» that i 
Curry would be asking. If Ctiny 
did not defind in tbe time , 
stipulatdibsrtlieWBC he would , 
be stripped of tbe title, accord- 
ing to Dufil 

Shufibrd. uAo had come all ! 
this way from Las 'Ve^s to ! 
collect his biggest purse, spoke I 
with long pauses. "1 get Ae i 
feeling he is trying to overlook : 
me". Then,"I am a preac h er's 
son. If tbe Lord had not been 
with me I would not have come 
Ais far." Then." I have been 
trying for 1 8 months to fi^t the 
dumpion. If I win Ais otM tite 
champion bu got to me." 
Then. " If 1 don't wm I will 
retire." 

Shuflbrd, tooking a bit care- 
worn. very much as Eusebio 
Pedr^ Ad when he came here 
to defend against Barry 
McGuigan. did not quite inspire

Millar’s reason to feel aggrieved 


From John WQcockstui, Brussels 


Robert M iilar. after riding one 
oftbe best racesof his career two 
days ago, can justifiably feel 
Fcfobed of viaon in Ae 4Tst 
Tour ofSpain. Video footage of 
Ae final time trial at Jerez de la 
Fronteia Aows that a photo- 
graphic agency motor-cycte rode 
alongside the winner Alvaro 
Pino on the most expo^ 
section of Ae course, ixotming 
him from a fierce headwiod. 

"If Pino had equalled ray time 
I would not have been too 
surprised,*' Millar said yes- 
terday on his way home to 
Belgium. "But I rode the whole 
race flat out in my biggest gears 
and finiAed only ei^i seconds 
behind Sean Kelly." 

Pino is not an adenowtedged 
time irialist and Aere was 
suspicion when bis time was 


announced 27 seconds foster 
than Kelly. Pino^s only previous 
peiforinahce of note was three 
years aw when he briefly led the 
Tour of Spain during his second 
season as a professionaL He wiD 
not eryoy Ae same leniency 
frbm race officials in Ae Tour 
de France which, rakes i^ce m 
July. 

Millar said he has a definite 
chance of winning the Tour de 
France, in which he is riAng for 
the fouiA time. His best pr^ 
vious performance was fourA in 
1984. Hie Scot, aged 26, said: 
"Laurent .Fignon and Gri^ 
LeMond are Ae ones A beat. 
Kelly does . not climb wed 
enough A win Ae Tour, ngnon 
is strong, but he is not ciinibiiig 
well at the moment. "

Graham for Arsenal 
as Spurs eye Pleat 


By Clive White 


The Nonh London giants. 
Arsenal and Touenham 
Hotspur, always thinking to 
upstage one another in some 
way, continu^ to monopolise 
the news yesterday. Following 
Tuesdav ni^t's announce- 
ment that Peter Shreeve had 
been dismissed as manager by 
Tottenham, Arsenal unveiled 
their new manager yesterday 
morning. George Graham, 
fh>m Miilwall. 

Tottenham, not to be out- 
done, proclaimed that th^ 
were interviewing David 
PleaL of Luton Town, fortheir 
vacant managerial seaLHe 
will make his dedsion today, 
which seems certain to be in 
the affinnative. 

The appointment of Gra- 
ham, a member of Arsenal's 
double winning team of 1970* 
71. follows Arsenal's rebulr 



Grahani: back at H^bnry 


last month by Terry Venables, 
the mana^ of Barcelona. It 
was the climax to an embar- 
rassing episode fbr the Lon- 
don club during which an 
indignant Don Howe resigned 
upon learning of Arsenal's 
approach to Venables. Steve 
Burtenshaw. the chief coach, 
had b^n in charge of first 
team affairs since then. 

By coincidence, Graham 
was a former colleague of 
Venables at Chelsea and at 
Crystal Palace. "He is the best 
man for the job." Denis Hill- 
Wood. the Arsenal chairman, 
said yesterday. "He has 
woilced under Berde Mee, 
Terry Ven^rics, Don Howe 
and Dave Sexton — and you 
could not have four better 
tutors th^ thaL" 

' Graham said: "My ambi- 
tion was always to mana^ one 
of the top clubs. Arsenal are 
not only one of the best, they 
are the club." They are also 
probably the most difficult 
dub in the country to manage, 
quite apart from the usual 
excessive demands for success 
associated with most big 
dubs. The comment ^ Tony 
Shaw, the Miilwall chief exec- 
utive. was p^aps not with- 
out some poignancy when be 
said: "Graham is honest, 
.straightforward and very 
strong on disdpline. 'With 
those qualities, he is the ideal 
person to take charge at 
Arsenal." 

Bringing the jet-set to heel 
will be Graham's stiffest task 
and it will be imeresung to see 
whether he can motivate 
Nicholas, a fellow Scot, to the 
heigins rarely muched since 


his much publicized move 
from Celtic three seasons ago. 
Graham has won respm for 
the way he steered MiUwall 
through a turbulent period 
following the infamous 
pitched bante invotving their 
supporters at Kenilworth 
last year. 

The tidiet restrictions on 
Millw^Ps home games that 
followed those scenes hit the 
club fiiiancially, but Gra- 
ham led them to a respectable 
ninth position in tte second 
division having ^ned pro- 
mouon the previous season. 
They also reached the sixth 
round of the FA Cup in 198S 
and the fifth last seasonJn a 
Ikying career spuming 16 
years. Graham, who won 12 
caps for Scotland, performed 
for Aston Villa, Chelsea, Man- 
chester United. Portsmouth 
and Crystal l^ce as well as 
Arsenal He is 41. 

Mr Hill-Wood said: "I 
slightly resent the idea that we 
have been dithering about 
finding a replaoemenL We 
have discussed many names." 
The move came to fruition at 
the FA Cup Final on Saturday 
when Mr HiU-Wood, observe 
ing the rule which prevents 
contaa with a manager durii^ 
the ie^ue season, spoke to his 
opposite number at Miilwall 
Alan Thom, about rdaang 
Gr^am from his contracL 
Miilwall have received 
"substantial" comi^sation. 
They are now loolung fbr a 
young replacement for 
Grah^. 

David Evans, the Luton 
chairman, gave permission 
yesterday for Tottenl^ to 


interview his dub's manager, 
but has asked Pleat not to 
leave. Pleat who has been 
manager fbr nearly nine years, 
is a director of the dub and on 
a five-year rolling contract 
Pleat said: "It has been a 
dream at Luton. It will take a 
very good dub to get me away 
from here. But 1 owe h to 
myself and my frunily to listen 
to what Spurs have to say." 

One sensed this season that 
Pleat is also 41 and a 
former Luton player, realized 
that he had lulfilM his poten- 
tial at the small Bedfordshire 
dub. 

Luton's narrow defeat to 
Everton in the latter stages of 
the FA Cup fbr die second 
consecutive year was further 
painful proof of that feet But 
he is ambitious and I remem- 
ber well last season after 
Luton bad stylishly ouqilayed 
Tottenham at l^te Hart 
Lane, how wide-eyed he was at 
the fe dlities and scope that a 
dub like Tottenham can af- 
ford. 

• Geoige Burley, the Sunder- 
land fiiU back who missed the 
last seven matches of the 
season, and goalkeeper Bob 
Bolder have bad minor 
operations.Buriey. the former 
Srottidi international needed 
his to ease pressure on a calf 
injury. 

Bolder, who spent the last 
two months of the season on 
loan to Luton, has had a 
troublesome foot Both will be 
available for the start of next 
season.

England are playing it safe 


From Stuart Jones, Football Correspondent, Colorado Springs 


Even though England's 
prei»rations are being con- 
duct at a slow. leisurely 
pace, the four representatives 
from Everton are being left 
beUnd. Tbey missed the first 
ofiidal game of the trip, 
against the local air force last 
Sun^y, and the second, last 
ni^t. against appreciably 
stronger opporilion in the 
^pe of the South Koreans. 

lliey will not be involved, 
either, in the third - against 
Mexico, the World Cup hosts, 
in Los Angeles on &iurd8y 
afternooDL Since Bobby Rolv 
son is certain to select at least 
two of them (Lindcer and 
Stevens) for the opening tie in 
Monterrey, Eni^d's only 
genuine practice match will be 
against Canada in Vancouver 
on Saturday week. 

Disoonceiting iho\^ that 
may be, concern has also been 
growing about Bryan Robson 
and the achUles tendon that he 
strained while running on a 
hard surfece. England's man- 
ager has already conceded that 
be may have to "throw his 
captain into the World Ciq) 
without playing a game and at 
could ci^ up." 

But Robson, the player, and 
WiUdns, who has been suffer- 
ing fit>m a sli^t knee ailment. 


were able to imt away the 
bicycles on which they 
bera keeping in trim, and join 
their colleagues in action on 
Tuesday ammoon. The rest 
of the party is in suspicioudy 
good health and humour. 

No risks are being taken 
with the Everton quartet 
Since arriving belatedly on 
Monday night they have done 
nothing at alL 

Luxurious 

setting 

But before anyone starts to 
imagine there is a bunch of 
apathetic layabouts in the 
En^and camp, it should be 
pointed out they are fUlowing 
the strict instructions of the 
team doctor. 

Vernon Edwards ordered 
them to take no idiysical 
exercise for 48 hours. Their 
li^t training will become 
gradually more strenuous only 
after theu* colleagues have left 
for Califomia. They are not, 
however, being treated harsh- 
ly — as a small picture of the 
environment ^riiich surrounds 
them here will illustrate. 

llie name of die hoteU the 
Broadmoor, is grossly mis- 



leading. especially for those in 
the West Country of England. 
It is not so moch a lonely 
prison in isolation, but a sea- 
contained exclusive village 
that lies in the shadow of the 
towerii^ peaks of the snow- 
cap]^ Rodey Mountains. 

High above the luxurious 
<aitmg^ a familiar sound can 
be beard. A granite shrine, 
buih less than a mile away on 
the steeply rising slt^ies of 
Cheyrane Mountain, is fitted 
with an amplified vilnaharp. 
On the horn, eadi hour, it 
rings out foe same dbime as 
Big Ben in Westminster 
Square. 

The fecUities below would 
do justice to an expensive 
sports complex. Th^ include 
three 18-hole golf courses 
(Hoddle, who currently can do 
no wrong, became the En^and 
squad champion on Monday), 
16 tennis courts, shooting 
galleries, swimming pools and 
an indoor ice boc^ rink 

All that is nothing com- 
pared to the centre down the 
roi^ that belongs to the air 
force and where foe squad has 
occaaonally been practiang. 
A car that enters the fixmt 
gates must motor fbr another 
nine miles on a motorway, or 
freev^ as it is called here, 
brfore reaching foe exit on foe 
ot^side. 

The most impressive of foe 
numerous buildings is a fbot- 
Ixdl siy liMm as Ug as Wem- 
bley with a roof on it As Don 
Howe.' the Eogland coach, 
*'You walk is there and 
you see this green synthetic 
pitch surrounded by a bright 
blue running track and you 
stop. The sheer size of it just 
takes your breath away." 


Howe, who has travelled to 
sports arenas across foe 
has no hesitation in faaUing U 
"as foe best 1 ^ve ever seen. It 
IS incredible." The scenery, as 
well, is for fiom shabby. 
Colora^ Springs 'wi&j i£ux

Dorado when it attracted gold 
prcspectors. 

No fortunes were found in 
the mountains Init foe area, 
later referred to as "Little 
London," is of stunning natu- 
ral brauty^^

De Angelis ^avely 
ill after accident 


By John Goodbody 


Elio de Angelis. of Italy, the 
Formula One driver, was in a 
critical condition in hospital 
last night after his Brabham- 
BMW car slithered off a bend 
and caught fire during ted 
runs on the French Riviera 
circuit of Le CastdleL 

A spokeswoman fbr the 
Phdli group said: "We have 
no details at foe moment but it 
was a bad. bad accident" 
Pirelli supiity tyres to foe 
Brabham and their tedi- 
nicians have been foUowing 
the Italian's tests rinoe 
Tuesday. 

De Angelis. aged 28, the son 
of a wealthy Roman builder, 
joined Brabham this year after 
competing fr>r several seastw 
with Lotus and finishing third 
in foe 1984 world efaam^ott- 
sUp. But he to had a senes of 
disappointing results as his 
Brabham car suffered from 
several technical difficulties 
because of its radically new 
with a semi-4ecumbent 
driving position and a seven- 
sp^grariMix. 

He moved to the circuit at 
Le Ca^llet near Toulon, 
after felling to finish in 
Sunny's Monaco Grand Prix 
and has yet to score any points 
in the present world champi- 
onship. But De Anmiis and 
His fellow Italian, Riccardo 
Patrese, have been gradually 


overcoming thdr problems 
and were expected to make a 
stronger showing in the next 
grand prix, foe &lg?an, at Spa 
on May 23. 

De Angelis hu been a 
glamorous figure in interna- 
tional motor cadi^ He to 
always attracted dan- 
gerous cranpetitions in speed 
and took part in the Torquay 
to Cowes powciboat race. 

He was runner-up in the 
one world karting cham- 
pionship in 1975 and Europe 
an champion a year later. He 
began Formula Three racing 
in 1976 and won the Monaco 
Formufe Three race in 1978; 
foe same year he was also 
competing in Formula Twa 
Tlte foilovdng year he mwfe 
his Formula One debut in 
Aigentina and to so fer taken 
p^ in 108 ^nd prix races 
with two victories. 

These two wins were totally 
difiGnentln 1982 be edged out 
Kelte Rosberg, of Finland, in 
the Austrian Grand Prix in 
one of the most enthraHing 
finishes in histenry. Last year 
be won foe San Marino Grand 
Prix when many of his main 
rivals ran out of fuel on foe 
Imola track. 

His leputalion was for col- 
lecting points rather than ag- 
gressive driving from the front

A light refreshing shower, 
so delicatdy incon^ueodal 
foal it amounted to tittle more 
than a bint of rain, briefly 
interrupted in foe Ger- 
man women's championships 
here yesterday. In foe main 
sradium they rimply had to 
stop, because Martina 
Navratilova and the umpire 
were both wearing gla:^ 
l^en was resumed. Miss 
Navratilova was disguised un- 
der a cap with such a huge, 
rain-ddy^ peak that h was 
as if much of the court had 
suddenly been roofed. 

"One day the passes fog 
up," Miss Navratilova said 
later, with feding, "and anoth- 
er yon have to put a cap 
on to keep foe rain away but 
I've got a stiginatism and I 
can't use contact lenses." 

She was playing here, she 
said, for two reasons. She had 
heard nothing but compli- 
ments about the tournament 
(and it was all true) and she 
wanted a wedc's competition 
on European shale as part of 
her preparations fiir foe 
French Qiampionships. 

A wedi's competition, fol- 
lowed by a wed: of practice

fer as I go. Yesterday,. 
Miss Navratilova won 6-1, 6-3 
against foe unusually I^gy 
Elna Reinach, of Jcfoannes- 
buig.aged 17. 

A spectafor new to the 
dxcuit was impressed by the 
structural connections be- 
tween MQss Navratilova's 
arms: “Are they muscles, or 
shoulder pads?” They are, of 
course, musdes: and they 
should be well exercised dur-.
