New jobs fury 

sheds 

another 5,900 



By Richard Evans, Lobby Reporter 
The Government faced an- 
other damaging onslaught 
over unemployment last night 
after British Rail announced 


i 


up to 5.900 workers at its 
engineering workshops and 
depots would be made redun- 
dant in the next three years. 

. Mr Nicholas Ridley, Secre- 
tary of State for Transport, 
freed angry demands for his 
• resignation from Opposition 
MPs while several Conserva- 
tive backbanchers, still reeling 
from last week’s decision by 
British Shipbuilders and Brit- 
ish Caledonian to axe 4.50C 
jobs, did little to hide iheii 
dismay. 

Mr Robert Hughes, 
Labour's chief transport 
spokesman, told the Com- 
mons: “There is no point in 
the Prime Minister going to 
Perth last week and speaking 
about slaying the dragon of 
unemployment when he (Mr 
Ridley), by his shortsighted 
policies, is feeding the dragon 
of unemployment". 

The latest job cuts, which 
fbrm part of a restructuring 
programme by British Rail 
Engineering Ltd, are in addi- 
tion to 1,750 redundancies 
already notified to trade 
unions. 

Between 4.200 and 5,000 
jobs will go at engineering 
workshops throughout Britain 
while the closure of 16 region- 
al depots will swell the redun- 
dancy. figure by 900. 

Mr Jimmy Knapp, NUR 
general secretary, said be 
would recommend a ballot of 


his membership on industrial 
action, including the possibili- 
ty of a strike. 

The BR workshops worst 
hit by the restructuring pro- 
gramme will be: 

• Doncaster, South York- 
shire, where the workforce will 
reduced from 3,100 to be- 
tween 1.430 and 1.690; 

• Wolverton, Buckingham- 
shire, which feces losing be- 
tween 1,050 and 1,250 jobs; 

• Springburn, Glasgow, 
which will lose about 800 jobs; 

• Eastleigh, near Southamp- 
ton, to lose 500 jobs. 

In a statement to the Com- 
mons, Mr Ridley said the job 
cuts were inevitable because 
new modern designs of rolling 
stock required less mainte- 
nance and repair. 

But he admitted: "This is a 
very sad day indeed for a lot of 
people who have been loyal 
and hard working and highly 
skilled operatives. The fret 
that change in industrial de- 
velopment and technology has 
made this necessary is a 
matter of great sadness to all 
of us". 

Mr Ridley attempted to 
soften this latest unemploy- 
ment setback by announcing 
that BR intended to appoint a 
senior director to co-ordinate 
measures to help those affect- 
ed by the changes. 

BR would be reemting 
about 20,000 people in the 
next three years in all depart- 
ments of the railway. 

His words did little to blunt 
the attack on the Government 


by Mr Hughes, the Labour 
frontbencher, who described 
the announcement as yet an- 
other betrayal of the BREL 
workforce, who had been 
promised repeatedly that there 
would be no more job cuts. 
BREL redundancies totalled 
19.000 since 1979, he said. 

There was little sympathy 
from Conservative MPs with 
Mr Michael Hirst, MP for 
Strathkelvin and Bearsden, 
saying yesterday's decision 
would be greeted with “pro- 
found dismay”. 

Mr Mick Martin, Labour 
MP for Glasgow, Springburn, 
voiced the fear of trade union 
leaders and other Opposition 
MPs that Mr Ridley was 
simply creating a tidy package 
for privatisation. 

But the angriest exchanges 
came when Mr Peter Snape, a 
NUR- sponsored MP and La- 
bour transport spokesman, 
called Mr Ridley an “Old 
Etonian twerp" and 
“hypocrite". 

In a statement explaining 
the redundancy plan, BR said 
it had been * reviewing its 
policy on manufacture and 
maintenance in the light of the 
new high level of investment 
in rolling stock. 

• PiUdngton Insulation, part 
of the PilJrington Glass group,

factory in Stirling, central 
Scotland, which employs 257 
people, is to close by next

The South African raids 

Angry Thatcher still 
rules out sanctions 


• Mrs Thatcher condemned South 
Africa's cross-border raids but again 
rejected growing demands for sanctions. 

• The foreign ministers of the frontline 
states met in Harare hot were unable to 
suggest immediate action 


• The Eminent Persons Group said it 
would persist with its efforts "until we 
know there is no hope". Page 7 

• The rand fell 5 per cent against the 
US dollar before the South African 
Reserve Bank stepped in. Page 7 


By Philip Webster, Political Reporter 


The Prime Minister yester- 
day "totally and utterly" con- 
demned the South African 
raids into Botswana, Zambia 
and Zimbabwe. 

But, under strong pressure 
in the Commons from Mr 
Neil Kinnock and other Op- 
position MPs, Mrs Thatcher 
rejected the growing chorus of 
demands for the imposition 
by Britain of economic sanc- 
tions against South Africa. 

Accepting that the Com- 
monwealth peace mission had 
suffered a setback, she voiced 
the hope that it would contin- 
ue in its work so long as there 
was a chance of it reaching a 
successful conclusion. 

The Prime Minister con- 
firmed that the heads of 
government of the seven 
countries represented in the 
Commonwealth Eminem Per- 
sons Group, which is trying to 
promote a dialogue between 
blacks and whites in South 
Africa, will be meeting in 
London in August to review 
progress of its efforts. The

The Government has pot 
forward costnraOing proposals 
for the Criminal Injuries Com- 
pensation Board which would 
effectively eliminate 60 per 
cent of present claimants. 

It is suggesting that the 
qualifying limit for claims be 
raised from £400 to £1,000, 
which would save some £16 
million a year, on the £40 
million annual costs. 

About 24,000 of the 40,000 
claimants annually, a figure 
expected to rise this year to 
44,000, fall below the £1,000 
level and would be disqualified . 
if the proposal Is adopted. 

It would mean that the 
majority of minor injuries, a 
broken nose, knocked out 
front tooth, serious cuts ami 
sprains, would no longer quali- 
fy. The scheme, as one official 
put it, would become a “super 
insurance bureau" for injuries 
such as loss of an eye ora limb, 
f-or other significant disability. 

The proposal, which has 
gone before a Cabinet sub- 
committee, has been floated 
during discussions between 
departmental officials, includ- 
ing the Home Office, on how 
the board is to be put on a 
statutory' basis. 

The Government wants 
greater control over the 
scheme and its funds. Since it 
was introduced in 1964 the 
number of claimants and its 
costs have steadily increased.

The lower limit on compen- 
sation payable, fixed at £50 
when the scheme was intro- 
duced, was set to ensure that 
very minor cases were exclud- 
ed. It was increased to £150 in 
1977 and £250 in 1981 to 
restore the original value of 
the limit, without altering the 
scope or purpose of the 
scheme. 

But if the lower limit is 
increased without any corre- 
sponding rise in die total sum 
available for the board to 
dispense, the effect will be to 
curtail its scope drastically, 
and change its purpose in 
providing compensation for 
those who suffer personal 
injury as a result of crimes of 
violence. 

Compensation is not paid 
unless the board is satisfied 
that the injury is one where the 
award payable, after dedu ction 
of soctai security beoifits, 
would not be less than the 
£400 timit. 

The Government intends to 
put the scheme on a statutory 
footing in Its Criminal Justice 
Bill in the next session. At 
present the board makes 
awards on a non-statutory and 
ex gratia basis; under the 
proposals there would be a 
statutory right to compensa- 
tion, and accountability to 
Parliament for the money 
spent

Southern universities gain 
from radical grants review 


By Lucy Hodges 
Education Correspondent 

Eighteen universities and 
colleges are to suffer spending 
cuts in the next academic year, 
with the worst hit universities 
being in Wales, Scotland and 
the North of England. 

By contrast many universi- 
ties in the south of England do 
rather well out of the radical 
new review of university 
teaching and research by the 1 
University Grants Commit- 
tee, and published hurriedly 
by the Department of Educa- 
tion and Science last night 
Cuts are being imposed on 
the four Welsh university 
colleges at Aberystwyth, Ban- 
gor, Cardiff and Swansea and 
at the Scottish universities of 
Aberdeen. Dundee, Edin- 
burgh, St Andrews and 
Stirling. 

In England, the universities 
of Aston, Durham, East An- 
glia, Hull, Keele, and Newcas- 
tle will be squeezed as will 
City University in London 
and the London and Manches- 
ter business schools. ■ 

The University Grants 
Committee has for the first 
time decided to allocate mon- 
ey partly on the basis of the 
quality of teaching and re- 
search. It has done so with 
help from the research coun- 
cils. learned bodies, medical 
charities' and individuals with 
specialist knowledge. 

No university or college is 
being cut by more than 0.5 per 
cent, and the biggest boost has 
been given to Warwick Uni- 
versity which gets a 4 per cent 
increase in funding. 

The letter id individual 
institutions was due to be 
published today, but was re- 
leased in a hurry last night 
when it become dear in the 
Commons that opposition 
MPs had- seen copies. The

Labour Party complained that 
southern universities such as 
Bath, Bristol. Kent and South- 
ampton were being protected 
from cuts. 

In a Commons statement 
yesterday. Sir Keith Joseph, 
Secretary of State for Educa- 
tion and Science, sought to 
reassure universities that, al- 
though they would suffer 
again this coming vear, they 
would not do so in future. 

As predicted in The Times 
on Monday, he said the Gov- 
ernment was prepared to find 
extra money for the universi- 
ties in 1987-88 and in follow- 
ing years. But he laced this 
sweet message with the provi- 
so that the new cash would 
depend on universities mak- 
ing progress in a number of 
areas, including the closure of 
small departments.

Pre-Chernobyl warning on safety 


By Sheila Gunn 
Political Staff 

British engineers discovered 
dangerous failings in a Soviet 
nuclear plant identical to 
Chernobyl 1 1 years ago, it was 
disclosed last nighL 
A paper prepared by the 
company Babcocks Power af- 
ter a visit to Soviet plants 
concluded that safety features 


compared badly with those on 
Western reactors. 

The company, which makes 
nuclear and conventional en- 
ergy plant, was particularly 
scathing of the construction of 
the RMBK-type channel reac- 
tor at Leningrad, the same 
design as ChemobyL 

The paper, given . to The 
Times, will be considered 
tomorrow by a House of Lords 


committee examining nuclear 
power in the EEC. 

Mr Ron Campbell, manag- 
ing director of Babcocks and 
author of the paper, expressed 
alarm after his 1975 visit that 
the channel reactors had no 
pressurized containment ves- 
sels, nor were there any plans 
to develop them.

BA winter float likely 


A stock market flotation for 
British Airways in the winter 
is still a strong possibility 
despite the recent setback in 
the airline’s fortunes, accord- 
ing to its chairman. Lord King 
of Wartnaby 

Lord King announced that 
pretax profits in the year to 
March 31 rose to £183 million 
from £168 million the previ- 
ous year, which had been 


affected by the £33 million 
cost of settling litigation over 
the collapse of Laker Airways. 

He said that the company 
might have to take tough 
action to' cut costs, including 
reductions in the airline’s 
38.000 workforce, because of 
the severe downturn in North 
Atlantic traffic

£20m merger scheme for soccer clubs 


By John Goodbody 

Fulham and Chelsea foot- 
ball clubs would share the 
Craven Cottage ground in a 
£20 million redevelopment 
scheme turning Chelsea]* 
Stamford Bridge into 128 
fiats, 99 houses and an office 
block. 

SB Property, which owns 
the Stamford Bridge pound 
and is a subsidiary of Marier 
Estates, is acquiring Fulham's 
Tbajnesside Craven Cottage 
ground for £9 million. 

Mr David Bulstrode* chair- 

nan of both companies, will 
become the new chainnanaf 
Third Division Fulham FC. 
- He does not think that Mr Ken 
Bates, chairman of First Divi- 
sion Chelsea, wffl he a ble to 
njise £20 million, the current 
valuation of Stamford Bridge, 
when the dub’s lease, on the 
ground expires in August 
19$9. • : 



Mr Bulstrode said yest- 
erday: “The lease says that we 
most find suitable accommo- 
dation within 15 miles if we 
ask Chelsea to leave. Craven 
Cbttage dearly is suitable and 
is within 15 utiles.” 

Although another danse in 
the lease is that Chelsea has 
an option to buy the ground 
when the lease expires, Mr 
Bnlstrode said that, now that 
there was planning percussion 
for Stamford Bridge its value 
was probably in excess of 


Cft milli on. “I do not believe 
it would be feasible for Mr 
Bates to buy it from u&T he 
said. 

Mr Graham Smith, a Chel- 
sea director, insisted that the 
clnb would not be leaving it* 
traditional home. “Chelsea 
dub has always been m thjs 
part of London and this is 
where we want to stay. It is the 
most fashionable part of the 
dty and we intend to have the 
most fashionable dub. We 
have a lot of plans to keep 
football at Stamford Bridge.” 

Mr Bnlstrode said that in 
the long term he would like to 
see both grounds redeveloped 
and a purpose-built stadium 
for both dubs erected in West 
London. 

Mr Bulstrode . will succeed 
Mr Ernie Clay as chairman of 
Fntham FC which has been in 
deep financial trouble. This 
season the dub was relegated 
to the Third Division after 


being forced to sell players to 
reduce debts. The Clay family 
are believed to have outstand- 
ing loans of £1.8 million. 

Mr Clay had hoped to 
remain m charge of Fulham by 
redeveloping its ground which 
was bought from the Church 
Commissioners last year. But 
toe focal council rejected plans 
to build Oats at Craven Cot- 
tage and toe Clay family 
announced that they would 
have to sell the cfob. 

Mr Bulstrode insisted that 
he would be taking his dnties 
as chairman of Fulham FC 
seriously. 

Although Fulham most be 

delighted at the news, Chelsea 
and their supporters will be 
aghast at the prospect of 
sharing toe ground with tradi- 
tional rivals, jest as Charlton 
FC has been forced to double 
up with Crystal Palace FC at 
Selharst Park since last 
season. 


Freak storms 
leave havoc 
in their wake 

Freak ihunderatorms swept 
across Britain yesterday with 
flash floods causing havoc on 
the roads and damaging 
homes, businesses and schools 
and causing power black-outs. 

In Nottinghamshire one 
man was killed and three 
injured wben a car hit a tree at 
Abbey Bridge. 

The worst affected regions 
were in the south-west and the 
Midlands, where as much as 
two inches of rgin fell. 

The AA said several roads 
in Avon, Somerset and Dorset 
were closed by floods, uproot- 
ed trees and landslides. In 
Derbyshire the RAC put on 
extra patrols to cope with the 
calls from stranded motorists. 

The London Weather Cen- 
ter predicted the storms would 
be gone by today.

Mrs Thatcher told MPs that 
after the raid the group did

"just possible" that they might

said. 

The Prime Minister did not 
directly respond to a demand 
from Mr Kinnock for an 
undertaking rhat Britain 
would not use its veto if 
sanctions were sought at the 
UN Security Council. 

But she said: "I do not

Front-line 
states 
fail to act 

From Jan Raath 
Harare 

The foreign ministers of the 
six Southern African front- 
line states gathered here yes- 
terday in the wake of the 
South Africa raids but gave no 
hint of any joint action. 

At the end of a day-long 
meeting, the states of Angola. 
Botswana, Mozambique. Tan- 
zania. Zambia and Zimbabwe 
condemned the “latest art of 
brutal aggression 

Referring to the mission of 
the Commonwealth Eminent 
Persons Group to bring peace 
in Souih Africa, they said that 
the timing of the raid “demon- 
strates, beyond possible 
doubt, the insensitivity, the 
duplicity and above all the 
blind stupidity” of the South 
African Government. 

The ministers said they had 
“reaffirmed their total com- 
mitment to the liberation 
struggles being waged against 
the evils of apartheid". 

The lack of any specific 
measures by the six states 
underlines their powerlessness 
against South Africa, as much 
as the raids demonstrated 
their vulnerability. 

Sources estimate that possi- 
bly hundreds of people have 
been taken in for questioning 
in Harare. 


more likely to achieve the 
desired negotiations after the 
raid than they were before.” 

Mr Kinnock said that isola- 
tion of South Africa was the 
only plausible means to pur- 
sue the possibility of a non- 
violent resolution and non- 
violent removal of apartheid. 

Mr David Steel, the Liberal 
leader, said the Prime Minis- 
ter should not leave Britain 
isolated in the Common- 
wealth as willing to utter 
words against apartheid but 
not willing to take action. 

• WASHINGTON: The 
United States, outraged by the 
raids, is in touch with Zambia, 
Zimbabwe and Botswana, and 
with its allies in an effort to 
restore prospects for dialogue 
and peaceful solution of differ- 
ences (Mohsin Ali writes). 

The spokesman for the State 
Department said that the 
United States had specific 
options under consideration 
but these did not include 
additional American econom- 
ic sanctions against South 
Africa. 

Criticism 
defied 
by Botha 

From Michael Hornsby 
Johannesburg 

Unmoved by international 
criticism. President Botha of 
South Africa yesterday robust- 
ly, and even belligerently, 
defended Monday's attacks. 

Intervening in a special half 
hour debate in Parliament, Mr 
Botha said South Africa would 
not be deterred by “the double 
standards and hypocrisy of the 
Western world” from hunting 
down “the smugglers of terror- 
ist arms into our country and 
murderers of innocent 
people”. 

TTie text of Mr Botha's 
remarks released by the 
Government’s Bureau of Infor- 
mation concluded with the 
words: “I congratulate them 
(the forces which carried out 
toe raids) and assure the 
country that we will do it again 
when the occasion demands.” 

Mr Botha omitted this sen- 
tence when he delivered the 
speech. 

But even without this last- 
minute toning-down his re- 
marks were tough enough. He 
made much of the alleged ties 
of the African National Con- 
gress with Libya. 

“We will fight international 
terrorism in precisely the same 
way as other Western coun- 
tries, Mr Botha said.

Government 

urged to boost 
local council 
spending curbs 

Bv Anthnnv Rpvinc a. - 


The Government's search 
for more effective controls 
over local authority capita] 
expenditure was given added 
urgency by a highly critical 
report from Sir Gordon Dow- 
ney, the Comptroller and Au- 
ditor General, yesterday. 

Sir Gordon said that the 
controls had resulted in un- 


— -WUU.U iu mi- 

der-spendmg of nearly £1,000 
million between 1981 and 


1983, and a forecast over- 
spend of £1,640 million be- 
tween 1984 and last April. 

He said that control ar- 
rangements had tailed in their 
primary purpose and that they 
had created a number of 
"undesirable side-effects”, in- 
cluding the obstruction of 
capita] projects which would 
more than recover costs. 

The report noted that in 
September 1984 the Govern- 
ment had acknowledged "that 
there were serious weaknesses 
in the existing control 
arrangements" and that a 
Green Paper published in 
January, Paying for Local 


Government, had recognized 
the need for fundamental 
change. 

Sir Gordon said that one 
Green Paper proposal, for the 
imposition of external bor- 
rowing limits for local authori- 
ties, would “pose serious 
practical problems which 
would take time to resolve”. 

He said that the alternative 
control, which would apply to 
gross expenditure regardless of 
capital receipts from council 
house and land sales, could be 
implemented more quickly 
and that a further consultation 
paper was published on that 
scheme last February. 

The report said that the use 
of net spending controls, in 
which housing sale receipts 
had been treated as negative 
expenditure, “has added great-

ly to the practical difficulty of 
exercising effective control be- 
cause of the impossibility of 


estimating accurately in 'ad- 
vance the capital receipts like- 
ly to accrue to local 
authorities”. 


Local income tax 
‘the wrong reform 9 ' 

RvCu^uni 


By George HOI 

Replacing the rates with a 
local income tax would be a 
flawed way of reforming coun- 
cil finance. Mr Kenneth Bak- 
er, Secretary of State for the 
Environment, said yesterday. 

At a conference of the 
Association of Metropolitan 
Authorities, Mr Baker strong- 
ly defended the 
Goyerament’spreferred alter- 
native of a community charge, 

which each council would set 
at a uniform level for all 
payers. 

"Local income tax would be 
a recipe for continuing and 
increasing conflict between 
central and local govern- 
ment”, he said. 

"Any government must 
take a view about the accept- 
able level of taxation and 
income, and if their room for 
manoeuvre is constrained by 
the decisions of local authori- 


ties, that is a basis for 
conflict-” 

In recent months, the de- 
bate over the Government’s 
plans to reform local govern- 
ment finance after the next 
election had moved away 
from retaining the present 
rating system, Mr Baker saiH 

But local income tax would 
not resolve the mismatch 
between those who pay tax 
and those who use local 
services, nor eliminate the 
need for complicated arrange- 
ments to equalize the taxable 
capacity of different areas. 

“Local authorities are, 
above all, service providers. 
With access to a buoyant 
distributive tax, more local 
authorities would opt for the 
quiet life: expansion of ser- 
vices as tax revenues and tax 
rates gradually crept up,” he 
said. 


Don is not race victim 


A London University pro- 
fessor who claimed that his 
career was ruined because of 
his Indian origin was told by 
an industrial tribunal yester- 
day that be was not a victim of 
racial discrimination. 

Professor Chandra Shanna 
alleged that the head of the 
applied mathematics depart- 
ment at Birkbeck College, 
Professor Ronald Tiffen, had 
blocked promotion from his 
£2 1 .QQO-a-year post 


Rejecting his claim, Mr 
Frederick Mostyn, the tribu- 
nal chairman, said: “We find 
that Professor Sharma’s salary 
reflected the contraints that 
the college system operated in 
rather than racial 
discrimination”. 

Many of the college’s 28 
professors were elderly and 
long serving, who were enti- 
tled to a higher salary than 
that ofProfessor Shanna, who 
is aged 51

. A ballot to end the threat of 
industrial action in the prison 
officers' dispute may no long- 
er be a formality as expected, 
after proposals to end the 
dispute were criticized at the 
Prison Officers Association's 
(POA) annual conference in 
Folkestone, Kent, yesterday. 

Officers from several pris- 
ons expressed disquiet at al- 
leged differences with 
management over a POA 
demand for manning levels to 
be determined by negotiation, 
with prison governors having 
the final say. 

The officers were concerned 
that management now intend- 
ed only to consult with them. 
Mr Peter Taylor, of Rochester 
Youth Custody Centre, 

"As far as I am wnceroed, we 
have won no thing ". 

Mr Alan Taylor, vice chair- 
man, said an agreement bad 
been reached on negotiability. 
Concessions had been cte ’ 
defined in letters from the » u 
Douglas Hurd, Home Secre- 
tary, and Sir Brian Cubbon, 
permanent under secretary at 
the Home Office. 

“We believe that we have 
it it right We believe that the 
>rm of words between the 
Prison Department and the 
association genuinely pro- 
vides for a procedure where 
disputes can be dealt with,” he 
said. 

It had been decided that in 
the event of a continuing 
dispute, management would 
;have the right to manage and 
the association would have 
the right to adopt its own 
stance. 

Association leaders are rec- 
ommending to their members 
the formal removal of the 
threat of industrial action. 

There was strong criticism 
of the Government for alleg- 
edly failing to react properly to 
the crisis in the prisons, and 
for indulging in "devious 
tactics” against prison offi- 
cers. In their first concerted 
response to the riots and the 
f dispute, the officers were told 
that warnings of trouble had 
been given at Northeye pris- 
on, fiexhill. East Sussex, long 
before it became the worst 
damaged in the system. 

Mr Eric Spiers, secretary of 
the East Sussex branch of the 
POA, said: "We have had

Britain keeps chess dominance 

By Raymond Keene, Chess Correspondent 

r a. • " 


said yesterday. 

It became clear at Monday’s 
mass meeting of dismissed 
pnntworkers belonging to the 
priming union Sogat '82 that 
many union members will nor 
be satified with financial com- 
pensation and will settle for 
nothing less than reinstate- 
ment in their former jobs. 

But in the wake of the 
meeting Mr Arthur Brit- 
tenden. News International’s 
Director of Corporate Rela- 
tions. repeated yesterday the 
company's stated position 
that large-scale reinstatement 
was not going to be offered. 

We have made it absolute- 
ly clear already that there is 
amply no question of ‘jobs at 
Wapping’ on a large scale for 
the workers who were dis- 
missed. 

“They cannot be reinstated 
because we have a workforce 
here which is sufficient for oar 
needs. They have been im- 
mensely loyal and we have no 
intention whatsoever of get- 
ting rid of any of them to make 
way for other people.” 


In the fifth round of the 
KJeinwort Grieveson UK-US 
chess challenge, British play- 
ers maintained their dominat- 
ing lead over the US. 

Cathy Haslinger (UK) beat 
Angela Chang (US); Kevin 
(UK) lost to Alex Chang 
(US); while British champion 
Jon Speelman drew his game 
against US champion Lev 
Alburt. 

The overall score, with 
three rounds to go is 9.5-5.5 in 
Britain's favour.

game. 


On Sunday Kasparov 
quickly won in the second 
session of the adjourned sec- 
ond match game. Miles had 
refused several opportunities 
in the first session to draw by 
perpetual check.

In the dispute, now in its 
seventeenth week, militant 
Sogat members now setting 
the tempo will refuse to accept 
any deal of which frill rein- 
statement is not a part. 

At Monday’s mass meeting, 
at which . the union's general 
secretary. Miss Brenda Dean, 
was criticized fiercely for her 
leadership, there were calls to 
sabotage any ballot of mem- 
bers on settlement terms if 
reinstatement was not one of 
them. 

Since the meeting News 
International management is 
much more pessimistic about 
the union's response, due by 
May 30 at the latest, -to Mr 
Rupert Murdoch’s offer, of the 
former Gray’s Inn Road print- 
ing plant and a fund of 
£15 million as thc basis for a 
settlement - ~ ■ 

Mr Brittenden said: "We 
certainly feel that the chances 
of a settlement have been 
diminished. 

"An added problem now is 
that the union leadership does 
not have the confidence of its 
members. If there was an 
indication that our offer was 
being accepted, we would need 
to know that the union leaders 
could deliver their members. 


Inaugural 
flight for 
Hawk 200 


By Peter Davenport 

By a cruel Irony the remind- 
ers of Doncaster’s glorious 
past m railway history were all 
around on the very day that 
British rail announced^ its job 
cuts. 

In the paint shop ax the 
engineering works, known lo- 
s imply as ‘The Plant*, 
workmen were pluming to 
restore perhaps the world’s 
most "famous steam engine, 
the rcand-breaking Mallard, 
before it goes on permanent 
exhibition at the National 
Railway Museum in York. 

The engine was built in Don- 
caster in 1938. 

Elsewhere in the town yes- 
terday a firm of local auction- 
eers were selling off around 
100 lots of historic railway 
models, pan of the estate left 
by a local collector. The sale 
attracted several hundred bid- : 
tiers, including some from 
Europe, and realised more 
than £20,000, much higher 
than expected. . 

But it was the harsher world 
of real railways that was the 
centre of concern - yesterday. 

Of the - job cuts announced by. 

BR, around 1,500 are to come 
at Doncaster out of an existing 
workforce of 3,100. Earlier 
thfe year, BR also announced 
350 redundancies at its works 
in the town, due to come into 
effect in August. 

Although the cuts were not 
as severe as some nnipn 


leaders had feared, with pre- 
******* 16 2,000, 


British Aerospace's Hawk 
200, the single-seat adapta- 
tion of the the two-seat Hawk 
trainer used by the Royal Air 
Force, flew for the first rim* 
on Monday evening. 

The o ne- hour-eight een- 
minute flight from Dunsfold, 
Surrey, piloted by BA chief 
test pilot, Mr Mike Snefling, 
was brought forward by a day 
because of a poor weather 
forecast. It was said to have 
been a complete success. 

The Hawk 200, a subsonic 
.fighter powered by a Rolls 
iKoyce Ado ur engine, has been 
introduced specifically for 
. overseas sales. The removal 
!of the second man from the 
cockpit has allowed the indn- 
ishm of more equipment »nrf 
1 1 the installation of a high 
|i velocity 25 mm. Aden g un, 

• It is claimed that, at a 
irejahrely low cost, the Hawk 
1200 wffi be able to carry a 
[substantial weapons load, in- 
cluding advanced migafe* 
(such as the Sea Eagle, or the 
[Sidewinder for air-to-air com- 
bat, and remain on patrol for 


dictions ranging up «> zjj uu, 
Mr Wills Proudfoot, the NUR 
area officer, was in no doubt 
about the message behind the 
announcement “Tbe figures 
together mean that the 
workforce would have been 
cut by more than half m less 
than a year, ft is amply 
slimming down for total clo- 
sure whidt I believe will come 
in two or three years, ft is a sad 
day for the town.” 

Mr Brian Day, the area 
officer of the engineering 
union, AEU, with members in 

tire works, called the decision ' 

“political malice". He said 
that the Government were 
permitting job losses.in tradi- 
tional Labour areas knowing 
they had few votes to lose. 

Doncaster becamea railway 
town when the framer Great 
Northern Railway transferred 
its main engineering works 
from Boston in Lincolnshire 
*n 1853. The first steam 
locomotive was built jh 1867 
and when the last was run out 
of the sheds in 1957 the works 
had produced a total of 23)0 
engines, among them the A4 
Mallard and its equally fiun- 
ous cousin, the A3 Flying 
Scotsman. 


At its height the works 
employed over 7,000 men but 
in the past 20 years its main 
role has been ra the repair of 
rolling stock, although it has 
continued to produce a anal] 
□umber of dksel locomotives. 4 
Many of the workers who 
left the plant yesterday were 
bewildered at the.reasons for 
the cuts, arguing that their 
works were competitive and 
profitable. Mr Mick Cahill, an 
NUR branch officer, said that 
last year the entire workforce 
were given a video presenta- 
tion extolling the bright future 
for the works. 

“We were told we wens 
making a profit of £2^ mil- 
lion. Admittedly, there had 
been investment of £60 mfl- 
hon but surely malting £ 2.5 
million a year makes more 
sense than putting all rh^c* 
people on the dole.? 

There win be little opportu- 
nity for those who lose their 
jobs to find new work. Unem- 
ployment in the town, which 
Jas a population of 289,000 

has soared by 5 per cent in the 

last year and now stands at 2 1 

• percent In the local job centre 

yesterday there were just eight 
vacancies advertised Hot- 
engineers. 

The local Labour council is 
pinning its hopes on revitaliz- 
ing the job market by attract- 
ing, small businesses. 

Yesterday the Labour 
ommeirs leader, Mr Gordon 
Gaftimorc, was asked what the 
ratine held if the scheme was 
not successful “In ten years 
there won't be a Doncaster” 
he said.

A German doll of 1909 
dressed like a nurse in a blue 
and white striped dress and 
pinafore set an auction price 
record for a doll when it sold 

ftn „5 4 » 2 9° (estimate 
£10,000 - £15,000) at 
Sotheby's yesterday. 

Only exceptional rarities 
from the seventeenth and 
eighteenth centuries have 
reaped that kind of price 
before. 

The doll is the product of 
one of the best known Ger- 
man factories, Kammer and 
Reinhart, and it is one of the 
rarest moulds used by the 
factory. It was bought by an 
minamed private collector. 

Another attraction of the 
sale was a group of evening 
8owns by top French designers 
of the 1920s and 1930s and 
consigned to Sotheby’s for 
sale. 

The top price was £4,620 
(estimate £1,500 - £2,000) for 
a beaded cripe-de-ckine cock- 
tail dress by Jean Patou dating 
from about 1928-35. It was 
bought back by Patou. 

A group of 31 dolls dressed 
by leading British designers in 
1984 in aid of the Save the 
Children Fund were sold for a 
total of £2.154. Lurking in a 
provincial sale in Avranches 
m Northern France at the 
weekend was one of the most 
important medieval illuniated 
manuscripts seen on the mar- 
ket in recent years.

Employee resistance 
to forced moves by 
company ‘increasing’ 


THE TIMES WEDNESDAY MAY 21 1986 


HOME NEWS 


By Christopher Warman, Property Correspondent 
Employees are becoming 
more resistant to being moved 
by their companies from one 
area to another, largely be- 
cause of family pressures, 
according to a survey carried 


out by one of the largest 
relocation organizations. 
Merrill Lynch Relocation 
Management International. 

The survey among compa- 
nies from the “Times 1000” 
showed that in 1985 about 

32.000 employees were 
moved within the UK. an 
increase of 7 per cent from 

30.000 in 1984 and up 28 per 
cent from 25.000 in 1983. The 
main reason for moving staff 
is promotion, given as the 
reason by 34 per cent of 
companies, while 32 per cent 
said it was to fill a post 
requiring particular skills and 
26 per cent said it was to 
develop the skills and career of 
employees. 

Despite these reasons, 21 
per cent of companies said the 
the level of resistance to 
moving among employees in- 
creased during 1985, and was 
particularly evident in the 
banking and finance sector (32 
per cent). 


The main cause of resis- 
tance was the childrens’ 
schooling (38 per cent of 
companies explained), but 
mere are now two other 
reasons which are causing 


concern. 

One is the increasing prob- 
lem posed by the working wife 
or husband of the employee to 
be moved which affected 37 
per cent, and which Merrill 
Lynch say is likely to be a 
continuing difficulty as both 
partners work either because 
they need two pay packets or 
because both are pursuing 
careers. 

The next problem is the 
housing cost differential be- 
tween north and south, or 
more specifically between the 
rest of Britain and London 
and the south-east. 

About 29 per cent reported 
that as their reason for resis- 
tance, followed by 22 per cent 
complaining about the disrup- 
tion of life cause by a move. 

Companies continue to un- 
dervalue the cost of relocating 
their staff. While Merrill 
Lynch estimate the cost at 
around £10,000. the average 
given by companies as £6, 1 00, 


slightly higher than last year’s 
estimate of £5,700. The under- 
valuing is thought to be the 
result of underestimating or 
ignoring the cost of bridging 
finance, one of the main costs 
of a move. 


Despite this failing, more 
companies are offering assis- 
tance with bridging loans. 
Only 1 7 per cent of companies 
are offering no helpt. com pared 
with 24 per cent in 1985. and 
time limits for loans have 
become more generous, with 
28 per cent of companies 
setting no time limit. 

Merrill Lynch say the rea- 
son for these policies may be 
the lack of knowledge of 
bridging finance costs. While 
companies gave reasonably 
ac urate and consistent esti- 
mates of the cost of removals, 
disturbance allowances and 
temporary accommodation, 
almost half (45 per cent) did 
not know the cost of bridging 
finance. 

There has also been a drop 
in the number of companies 
helping employees to look for 
a home in the new location. 


‘Racist’ teacher may lose job 


By Tim Jones 

A teacher at a multicultural 
educational centre will learn 
today whether he is to lose his 
job for allegedly inciting racial 
tension in an article for the 
right-wing literary magazine, 
Salisbury Review. 

Mr Jonathan Savery. aged 
37. a teacher at the Avon 
Multicultural Education Cen- 
tre at Bristol, denies he is 
racist. 

Mr Savery, who married a 
West Indian woman and has 
taught children from ethnic 


minorities for 1 3 years, seems ' 
set to become embroiled in a 
controversy similar to that 
which caused Mr Ray Honey- 
ford, a headmaster in Brad- 
ford, to seek early retirement 
Mr Honeyford had also ex- 
pressed his views on multi- 
racial education in the same 
journal. 

In his article, Mr Savery 
argued that anti-racism was 
the new witchcraft of the left. 
He wrote: “The anti-racists’ 
apparent interest in education 
rarely seems to extend beyond 
the stage of parading the 


under-achievement of certain 
groups as “proof" of racism. 

“Indeed their interest in 
pupils' schooling seems a 
mere contrivance. For their 
true concerns are political 
rather than pedagogical." 

The campaign against Mr 
Savery has been led by Mr 
Charanjit Singh, a teacher of 
Sikh studies at the centre, who 
said that Mr Savery symbol- 
ized a racist backlash. 

A decision on Mr Savery's 
future in his £9,000 a year post 
will be taken by a disciplinary 
panel of Avon Council. 


Stonehenge pop 
organizers banned 


The Stonehenge mid-sum- 
mer pop festival was effective- 
ly banned by the High Court 
yesterday when a judge or- 
dered the organizers to stay 
away. 

Judge John Newey. QC 
granted 25 landowners injunc- 
tions against 46 named peo- 
ple. banning them from going 
within four miles of Ston- 
ehenge. 

Afterwards a lawyer for the 
landowners said the effect of 
the injunctions made against 
the “nucleus" of intending 
festival -goers would be to ban 
the festival, planned for June 
21 . 

English Heritage., the gov- 
ernment body which looks 
after the ancient monument, 
with the National Trust and 
the other landowners, sought 
the injunctions in an attempt 
to prevent last year's violent 
clashes between the police and 
the hippy “peace convoy". 

The judge said the last 
festival to be held at Stone- 
henge. in 19S4. “seriously 
interfered with the happiness 
of many local people" and 
caused damage, loss, expense 
and anxiety in the area. 

Bui he added: “It's unfortu- 
nate that, for those w;ho gain 
pleasure from attending pop 
festivals. there is no properly 
equipped site available on 
which an ordinary festival 
could be held". 


The festival-goers argued 
that an injunction would in- 
terfere with their freedom to 
practise their religion and 
their right to “freedom of 
assembly". 

The judge adjourned the 
case against Mr Anthony 
Chappell, who is representing 
the Druids in their challenge 
to the decision by English 
Heritage to close the monu- 
ment this year.

Scots church 
reverses vote 
on abortion 

Abortions should be al- 
lowed when pregnancy might 
cause physical or psychologi- 
cal harm to the mother, the 
Church of Scotland’s General 
Assembly decided yesterday. 

The ministers voted by a big 
majority to relax their strong 
anti -abortion stand of last year 
after a heated debate at the 
assembly in Edinburgh. 

Meanwhile, a survey, pub- 
lished in the report to the 
assembly, showed more 
Church of Scotland members 
declaring themselves to be 
Conservatives than any other 

church group. More than 45 
per cent voted Tory. 


Computer 
stress link 


warning 

By Bill Johnstone 
Technology Correspondent 

Young computer professkm- 
alsare prime candidates for 
stress-related diseases such as 
hypertension, a university pro- 
fessor claims. 

The competitive demands of 
tiie computer industry are 
exerting heavy pressures on 
those who design, market and 
manufacture computers. Pro- 
fessor Cary Cooper, of the 
University of Manchester 
Insititute of Science and Tech- 
nology (UMIST), says. 

He and Mr Howard Kahn 
have just completed a review of • 
the research conducted on 
stress in the industry. . 

Professor Cooper believes 
that individuals who work in 
the industry follow Type A. or 
coronary-prone, behaviour. 
They are highly motivated, 
aggressive, smoke and drink 
too much and eat the wrong 
foods. Computer users are 
being subjected to stress also. 

Computer casualties show 
classic signs of stress: apathy,. 
bad timekeeping, heavy smok- 
ing and drinking. If the stress 
and the habits persist serious 
illnesses, such as heart dis- 
ease, can result- Many of these 
effects are not detectable be- 
cause the industry is young, as 
are the people who work in it.

Brighton bomb trial 

Hotel bomb ‘part of cache’ 


A cache of arms and bomb- 
making equipment seized last 
year in Glasgow was “one of 
the most significant and dead- 
ly collections of terrorist 
equipment over discovered in 
Great Britain", a jury at the 
Central Criminal Court was 
told yesterday. 

Mr Alan Feraday, from the 
Royal Armaments Research 
and Development Establish- 
ment, said there was sufficient 
material in the cache, found in 
a cellar at James Gray Street, 
to make at least 24 bombs, in 
addition to the one already 
planted at the Rubens Hotel 
near Buckingham Palace. 


Mr Feraday. who has more 
than 30 years' experience of 
explosives, said that the Ru- 
bens Hotel bomb, defused by 
police in June last year, clearly 
came from the Glasgow cache. 

TTie prosecution claims the 
device was set to detonate on 
July 29. The 31b 9oz bomb, 
packed in a yellow plastic 
lunch box, had two separate 
booby trap devices. 

The first was a mercury tilt 
switch. 

The prosecution claims that 
it was one of 16 bombs which 
the five accused, Patrick 
Magee, aged 35. Gerard 
McDonnel. aged 34, Peter 


Sherry, aged 30. Martina An- 
derson aged 23. and Ella 
O'Dwyer, aged 26. were plan- 
ning io explode in London 
and 12 seaside resorts last 
year. 

Mr Magee alone is accused 
of planting the bomb that 
exploded at the Grand Hotel. 
Brighton, during the 1984 
Conservative party confer- 
ence and with the murder of 
the five people who died 

All five have pleaded not 
guilty. 

The hearing continues 
today. 


Sisters 

‘suffered 

violent 

onslaught 9 

Two sisters suffered “ap- 
palling injuries" from a whip 
or belt and cigarette burns and 
had marks covering their bod- 
ies as if they had been beaten 
with a hairbrush, the Central 
Criminal Court was told 
vesierday. 

Mrs Patricia May. for the 
prosecution, said the sisters, 
aged il and 8. who were 
ordered not to be identified, 
had been subjected to “an 
onslaught of uncontrolled 
beatings". The girl's father, a 
builder aged 29. and the 
woman he lived with, aged 28, 
of Croydon, south London, 
denied a total of 12 charges of 
child cruelty and causing 
grievous bodily harm and 
injury to the sisters between 
January and October last year. 

The elder sister told ihe 
recorder. Mr Robert Harman. 
QC. yesterday that her mother 
had beaten her with a bell and 
her father had hit her with a 
wire skipping rope. 

The girl said her mother had 
beaten her because “my little 
brother used to tell lies on me 
to my mum. He said 1 did 
things when 1 didn't. I told her 
I didn't, but she didn't believe 
me and she used to beat me." 

Mrs May told the court that 
the girls had suffered “appall- 
ing injuries", possibly because 
they were “made scapegoats 
for their far more indulged 
younger brother whose word 
was being accepted by the 
parents without any proper 
thought or investigation". 

She said it was significant 
that doctors had found no 
injuries on the boy. aged five. 

Although the sisters were 
always neatly dressed, staff at 
their" school noticed their uni- 
forms covered all their limbs. 
The first time the elder girl 
wore physical education clo- 
thes her teachers had noticed 
scars on her arms and legs and 
alerted the social services. 

The hearing continues 
today.

Cauldron of violence 
in South Africa 
must be avoided 


APARTHEID 


In spile of the raids by South 
Africa into Botswana. Zambia 
and Zimbabwe, which she to- 
tally and utterly rejected. Mrs 
Margaret Thatcher, the Prime 
Minister, told the Commons 
that while she believed the 
Commonwealth peace mission 
in the shape of seven eminent 
persons had suffered a setback 
because of what had happened, 
she hoped they would continue 
their work so Ions as there was a 
possibility of it coming to a 
successful conclusion. 

She rejected demands by Mr 
Neil K innock. Leader of the 
Opposition, for the imposition 
by Britain of economic sanc- 
tions against South Africa, 
pointing out that these had not 
worked in the case of Rhodesia. 
The> must stick, she said, to the 
objective of discussion and di- 
alogue and the prevention of 
violence on both sides. 

Mr Kinnock. in raising the issue, 
described the South African 
attacks as an act of state 
terrorism clearly designed to 
damage the Commonwealth 
initiative. 

In condemning this outrage 
(he went oni will the Prime 
Minister give an undertaking 
that Britain will not use its veto 
in the event of mandatory 
sanctions being sought at the 
United Nations Security Coun- 
cil? 

Secondly, will she either initi- 
ate or support effective sanc- 
tions by the Commonwealth 
against South Africa? 

Mrs Thatcher. After the raid, 
and in the knowledge of that, the 
Eminent Persons Group did 
have a meeting with eight South 
African ministers and discussed 
the wav ahead and left their 
proposals with those South Af- 
rican ministers. They have now 
left South Africa because they 
thought that stage of their 
proceedings was over. 

It is possible — just possible — 
they may still continue their 
work 3nd 1 can only say. after 
what has happened and with the 
violence on both sides. I still 
think it is worth making every 
effort to stop South Africa just 
dissolving into a cauldron of 
violence. 

Mr Kinnock: I sincerely hope 
persistence by the group will be 
rewarded by significant change 
in the position in South .Africa. 
Ticking off the South African 
charge does not constitute effec- 
tive action and the efforts of the 
Group would be immensely 
strengthened, as would the 
Commonwealth efforts in gen- 
eral. if she demonstrated here 
and now that she was prepared 
to initiate and develop effective 
sanctions against South Africa? 
Mrs Thatcher No. 2 do not 
believe sanctions and the isola- 
tion of South Africa are any 
more likely to achieve the 
desired negotiations after the 
raid than they were before. 

Heads of government of the 
Commonwealth charged with 


duties in relation to the group 
will be meeting in London at the 
beginning of August under the 
chairmanship of Sir Lynden 
Pindling and doubtless their 
position will be discussed then. 

It is our great anxiety to 
prevent the terrible violence 
that could take place in South 
Africa and do everything pos- 
sible to assist, still, the EPG to 
carry out their role. 

Mr Kinnock: With that earnest 
desire in mind, will she accept 
that isolation of South Africa is 
the only plausible means 
remaining to pursue the 
possibility of a non-violent 
resolution and a non-violent 
removal of apartheid in South 
Africa? 

If she does accept that, will 
she recognise now a signal by the 
British Government, even in 
anticipation of the findings of 
the EPG. taking a firm stand in 
line with the original propo- 
sitions of the Nassau agreement. 




Kinnock: Effective sanctions 
most be imposed 

would demonstrate to South 
Africa we will not appease 
apartheid or tolerate their war- 
fare against other African states 
and secondly we will implement 
effective sanctions? 

Mrs Thatcher No. becuase T do 
not think sanctions would help 
achieve the objective we seek. 
Thev did not in Rhodesia. It is 
nght to do as we have done to 
deny South Africa defence 
weapons under a manadatory 
Security Council resolution. We 
must keep the objective in 
mind, which is discussion and 
dialogue and the prevention ot 
violence on both sides. 

Mr John Carlisle (Luton North, 
CV. Since the African National 
Congress declared an escalation 
of violence at the weekend, in 
the interests of self defence the 
South African Government had 
no alternative but to prevent 
further bloodshed by the attack. 


Will she accept, as the former 
Australian Prime Minister. Mr 
Malcolm Fraser, a member ol 
the Eminent Persons Group, 
said today, that all is not lost 
and now is' the lime for re- 
doubled efforts by the group to 
achieve a solution. 

Mrs Thatcher: We totally and 
utterly condemn those raids 
conducted by South Africa on 
the three countries. We still 
believe, along with the 
Commonwealth, that which was 
quoted in the Commonwealth 
communique that “we should 
negotiate for a suspension of 
violence on all sides and 
process of dialogue across poli 
tics, colour and religion with a 
view to establishing a non-raciaJ 
and representative 

government." 

For that purpose, it is essen- 
tial to secure an ending of 
violence on all sides. That was 
and will remain our objective. If 
we had given up on Rhodesia 
every time there was a terrible 
raid across the border or vi- 
olence within the country we 
should never have got the 
settlement we ultimately 
obtained. 

Mr David Steel. Leader of the 
Liberal Party: Will she give ail 
undertaking, once the 
Commonwealth heads of gov- 
ernment have read the report 
from the Eminent Persons 
Group, she will not leave Britain 
isolated in the Commonwealth 
as willing to utter words against 
apartheid but not willing to take 
anion? 

Mrs Thatcher: I have indicated 
the action that the Common 
wealth took with the formation 
of the group. The morning after 
the raids they met the eight 
ministers, still determined to 
carry on with their task, if at ail 
possible. 

Mr Julian Amery (Brighton 
Pavilion. C): The South African 
raids in themselves are not so 
very different from those under- 
taken by Israel or more recently 
by the United States, with her 
cooperation. (Labour cheers) 
What causes anxiety is the 
timing of these particular raids 
when the eminent persons group 
were themselves in Cape Town. 
Ought we not to wait for 
clarification of why the South 
Africans took the action they 
did and how the eminent per- 
sons have reacted before wc 
decide on any comse of action? 
Mrs Thatcher ! hope tie will 
agree that the South Africa case 
is very different from any other, 
different in its apartheid, dif- 
ferent in its degree of violence 
on all sides. 


Jobs back call for miners 


Management of the National 
Coal Board did not reside with 
the Government but, by Act of 
Parliament with the NCB 
board itself, the Prime Minister 
said. 

Mrs Thatcher was replying to 
Mr Gavin Strang (Edinburgh 
East Lab) who urged her to 
read in Hansard the comments 
made last year by the 


Secretaries of Stale for Energy 
and Scotland urging miners 
dismissed during the strike to 
take their cases to industrial 
tribunals. 

There were *10 miners there 
in the House today who took 
that advice and had the 
tribunals recommend their re- 
engagement, but the NCB was 
refusing to lake them back. 


Grants change to 
reward excellence 
at universities 


Clarke says pay increases 
must be kept down 


EDUCATION 


Some university departments 
may have to be dosed while the 
better ones will get more money. 
Sir Keith Joseph, Secretary of 
State for Education and Science, 
told die Commons in a statement 
about university funding for the 
1986-87 academic year. 

If (he said) we are to continue 
to improve the quality of and 
effectiveness of onr universities 
we must provide positive in- 
centives to individual institu- 
tions for better management and 
better teaching and research. 

But the Secretary of State 
announced he was telling the 
University Grants Committee 
the Government would be 
ready to consider with them 
some further financial provision 
in 1987-88 and the following 
years. This would, however, 
depend crucially on evidence of 
real progress in implementing 
and building on the ib«f 

were needed. 

Mr Giles Rad ice, chief Oppo- 
sition spokesman on education, 
said the statement, with its 
support for cats and half- 
hearted promise about talks 
sometime was a savage indict- 
ment of Sir Keith's period in 
office. 

It is (he said) bad news for 
universities, bad news for stu- 
dents and bad news for industry. 
We are the only major country in 
western Europe cutting back on 
higher education, and it is a 
shame. 

Sir Keith Joseph said the UGC 
was that day writing to the 
universities to inform them of 
their grants for the 1986-87 
academic year in the context of 
their planning to the end of the 
decade. 

The committee would also 
inform the universities next 
week of the detailed outcome of 
the important initiative it had 
taken to encourage and reward 
excellence in university depart- 
ments by selective reallocation 
of the fuods available. 

In plain language this meant 
more funds for the better re- 
search departments and less for 
the less good. 

It meant a greater incentive to 
all universities and departments 
to improve both their academic 
standards and their manage- 
ment and use of resources. 

This (he said) is a landmark in 
university funding which the 
Government strongly supports. 

The Government is under no 
illusions about the difficulties of 
r estr uc turi ng and rationalisation 


involved. As some departments 
gain, others may have to be 
reduced and even dosed. 

He would be discussing the 
way forward with the UGC and 
with^ the Committee of Vice- 
chancellors and Principals. 

Mr Radke said that after all the 
weekend publicity Sir Keith's 
sta teme nt would be a bitter 
disappointment to all those who 
were concerned about the future 
of higher education. 

iteen universities faced 
cash cuts. These ind tided 
Aston, Dor ham, HqU, Keefe, 


Newcastle, Cardiff and 
Aberdeen. 

Sir Keith Joseph, said the 
allocation of money by the UGC 
would recognize for the first time 
the differential quality of in- 
dividual departments In individ- 
ual universities so as to 
encourage excellence. It was a 
landmark the Hoose would be 
wise to recognize. 

Mr Stephen Darrell (Loegh- 
fooroogh, O said it was fun- 
damental to the idea of 
universities that each of their 
departments should combine re- 
search and teaching functions. 
While it might be necessary to 
encourage strnctnzal he 

asked for an assurance tint each 
department would continue 
teaching and research. 

Sir Keith Joseph: That is gen- 
erally recognized to be tree, but 
is subject to some disagree m ent 
among academics. The deaskm 
is for tin UGC, universities and 
individual departments. 

Mr Alan BeUh (Berwick-upon- 
Tweed, L): It is an insult to the 
UGC and universities to say that 
never before have (bey sought 
selectively to promote ex- 
cellence. This statement relates 
to a time when he w01 not be 
Secretary of State and this 
Government will not be in 
power. 

Sir Keith Joseph: While miver- 
sities and departments have 
striven to improve excellence, 
this is the first time the UGC 
has sought to recognize dif- 
ferences of quality. 

Mr Martin O'Neill (Clackman- 
nan, Lab) said there was little 
confidence in the ability of the 
UGC to carry out tins kind of 
exercise in pursuit of excellence. 
Sir Keith Joseph:! am not at all 
surprised at his expression of 
doubt about the co m petence of 
anybody to make these judge- 
ments but the UGC has about 
100 academics on its sub- 
committees. They have contrib- 
uted their judgement, and so 
have the research councils and 
the Royal Society and a Dumber 
of eminent people. 

Mr Harry Green way (Ealing 
North. O asked if the statement 
meant no university was des- 
tined for closure. 

Sir Keith said Press stories 
about possible closures were not 
remotely justified by the picture 
he had just presented. 

Mr Andrew Bennett, an Oppo- 
sition spokesman oa education, 
said Sir Keith should bare put 
the UGC letter before the House 
so that MPb canid see the extent 
of the cuts In resources and 
student numbers. 

Why did the Gov e rn me nt 
believe higher education should 
be ad? The statement was,, in 
effect blackmail of universities: 
if they went along with these 
cats, they ought get a few extra 


EMPLOYMENT 

Pay settlements in the United 
Kingdom (tad to be kept down if 
the nation was to maintain the 
excellent improvement in its 
productivity — which was now 
second only to that of Japan — 
Mr Kenneth Clarke, the Pay- 
master General and chief Gov- 
ernment spokesman in the 
Commons on employment, said 
during questions in the 
Commons. 

The great reduction in indus- 
trial disputes was undoubtedly 
helping (he added). 

Earlier, there were Opposition 
protests when he reiterated that 
the latest unemployment figures 
showed 3,325,058 claimants, 
which amounted to an un- 
employment rate of 13.4 per 
cent 

Mr Guy Barnett (Greenwich, 
Lab) said the figures had already 
been added to by the thousand 
or so redundancies at British 
Caledonian, which were only 
the tip of an iceberg. 

The whole of the tourist 
industry was likely to be seri- 
ously affected. What was going 
to be done to protect tourist 
industry workers from the con- 
sequences of Government ac- 
tions and policies? 

Mr Clarke said the British 
Tourist Authority estimated 
that tourism was generating 
some 50,000 jobs a year. 

Mr Barnett: Not this year, not 
this year. 

Mr Clarke said everyone was 
concerned about the quite un- 
merited response in the United 
Slates about coming to Europe 
because of certain incidents 
here. The Government had gone 
to considerable lengths to point 
out that they would be safer here 
than in most American cities. 

Mr Martin Flannery (Sheffield, 
Hillsborough, Lab) said the 
horrifying unemployment fig- 
ures grew more horrifying daily, 
with the British Rail workshops 
redundancies coming dose on 
those in the British shipyards. 

The Government boasted 
that they had got inflation 
down. If they removed nearly 
four million people from the 
purchasing areas, of course 
inflation was bound to falL 


But the Government could 
not see a method of reducing 
unemployment without pouring 
money into the economy, 
which, he guessed, was what the 
Prime Minister was about to do. 
(Conservative protests) 

Mr Clarke said the Government 
was desperately disappointed 
about continuing rcdu nancies in 
the older industries. That was 
one reason it was necessary to 
create new jobs — and there had 
been nearly one million since 
the spring off 983. 

Mr James Hill (Southampton, 
Test. C) said a major factor was 
that the trade union movement 
had not realized what a scourge 
it would be, in terms of world 
competitiveness, if they did not 
get their act together in time to 


Clarke: Productivity second 
only to Japan 

compete with emerging nations 
in shipbuilding, television 
assembly and other things. 

Mr Clarke said there was a need 
to keep down pay settlements. 
He hoped some trade union 
leaders were recognizing that 
and improving job flexibility to 
keep up the excellent record of 
improvement in productivity 
which was beaten now only by 
Japan. 

The great reduction in indus- 
I trial disputes was also un- 
doubtedly helping. 

Later, Mr Clarke added that 
the enteiprise allowance scheme 
was giving useful support to 
many otherwise unemployed 
people all aver the country logo 
into business on their own. 

Mr Donald Stewart leader of 
the SNP. wondered if the Gov- 
ernment would maintain its 


excellent record of finding ways 9 
to massage the figures. .* 

Mr Clarke said some of the six -- 
changes in the figures had put 1“ 
the total up as well as down. 

The alterations had been at-^ 
tempts to make them morel', 
accurately reflect the situation. 

Mr Nigel Forman (Carshaftou'^ 
and Wallington. C) referred to 
the warning of the chairman of - , 
the Manpower Services 
Commission that over the next 
five years between a half and 
three-quarters of the labour 
force would require some train- 
ing or retraining. 

Mr Clarice told him chat any- 
thing the Government could do .* 
to improve adult training and - 
retraining would be invaluable. 

Mr John Evans, an Opposition " 
spokesman on employment, de- 
scribed the unemployment fig- - 
ures as obscene. 

They did not include thou- - 
sands of redundancies in stop- ./ 
building, at British Caledonian • . 
and Kodak, nor the many 
thousands at British RaiL .V* 
There were 1,400.000 people 
who bad been unemployed for 
more than a year. * 

Would Mr Clarice denounce ~ 
the story in last week's Daily * 
Telegraph that a survey of pilot 
schemes bad been backed up by .. 
the employment department's - 
own fraud squad, so that the ■ 
survey had been aimed at T 
getting people off the unemploy- 
ment register, rather than assist- ' 
ing them? 

Mr Clarke said that each month 
half a million people became ; 
unemployed and a little under <• 
half a million found jobs. 

What was worrying was the - “ 
long-term unemployed, who 
seemed to be more than one ‘ ' 
million. 

His department's survey ini- - - 
native had meant interviewing - 
the long-term unemployed in 
the pilot areas individually a 
offering help. 

It had then been found that 
some of the long-term un- ‘ 
employed ceased to claim - 
benefit. :

new rule 

MORTGAGES 


A Government decision to cut 
by half the mortgage interest 
payments for the unemployed 
for the first six months of 
supplementary benefit would 
sentence thousands of people to 
eviction and homelessness as a 
penalty for being unemployed. 
Mr Michael Meacher, chief 
Opposition spokesman on 
health and social security, said 
when moving an Opposition 
amendment on the resumed 
report stage of the Social Se- 
curity Bill. 

'niis would be the last straw 
which finally ditched thousands 
who had exercised their right to 
buy. he said. The Conservative 
Party made great play of 
people's right to buy their own 
homes. Apparently that applied 
to everyone but the jobless and 
the poor. The Prime Minister 
was willing to accept mortgage 
relief on her new home in 
Dulwich while denying much 
smaller sums to poorer people. 

His amendment suggested 
that benefit payable to owner- 
occupiers should be in the form 
of an allowance covering pre- 
scribed housing costs including 
mortgage interest and rates. 

It was rejected by 321 votes to 
193 — Government majority, 
128. 

Mr Robert McCrindle (Brent- 
wood and Ongar.C) said there 
seemed to be an underlying 
assumption m what the Govern- 
ment proposed that jobs were 
lost voluntarily. Thai certainly 
was not the case in those parts of 
the country where jobs were not 
only difficult to get but impos- 
sible. There was a certain ele- 
ment of insensitivity. 

Mr Antony Newton, Minister 
for Social Security, said the 
proposals would be pm to the 
Social Security Advisory 
Committee for full consultation 
in the normal way. 

There was the wider issue of 
whether it was right to expect 
the taxpayer, even for short 
periods ofdifflculty which led to 
someone being on supple- 
mentary benefit, should im- 
mediately pick up the whole of 
the bill. 

Building societies would seek 
to help those who found them- 
selves in short term difficulty for 
a variety of reasons, by no 
means only affecting supple- 
mentary benefit recipients. 

ft was estimated that in any 
given period something like 
90.000 people might be affected 
against a total of some six 
million borrowers from the 
building societies. 

This is a reasonable, balanced 
and fair way (he said) of seeking 
to strike a balance between 
taxpayer, borrower and lender. 


British Rail estimated that it 
would need between 4.200 and 
5.000 fewer people working in 
its engineering subsidiary — BR 
Engineering Ltd — over the next 
three years. That was on top of 
the 1,750 job losses that the 
unions had already been told 
about, Mr Nicholas Ridley, 
Secretary of State for Transport, 
said in a Commons statement. 

Modern designs of rolling 
stock (he said) require less 
maintenance and repair. 

Overall there were large 
reductions in the maintenance 
workload. Capacity reductions 
had been occurring fora number 
of years. 

He gave details of British 
Rail’s proposals for its mainte- 
nance group of works at 
Eastleigh, Doncaster, 
Wolverton and Glasgow 
Springbum. and said that the 
BR board intended to appoint a 
senior director to coordinate 
measures to help people affected 
by the changes. 

The director would work with 
BREL in redoubling their efforts 
to find alternative employment 
for the people displaced and to 
develop retraining programmes. 

British Rail wifi be recruiting 
some 20.000 people over the 
next three years (Mr Ridley 
went on) to jobs in ai! depart- 
ments of the railway. 

BR will also be approaching 
the local authorities, with a view 
to setting up, or supporting, in 
each area a suitable develop- 
ment agency on the lines that 
BREL has done with consid- 
erable success at Sbildon. 
Horwich and Swindon. 

They will provide financial 
and other support through these 
agencies and for job creation 

Mr Robert Hughes, chief Oppo- 
sition spokesman on transport, 
said the announcement was yet 
another savage cut in BREL 
manning levels and a further 
betrayal of the workforce who 
bad been told time and time 
again that this or that set of cuts 
would be the last and would 
provide job security and 
stability. 

This means that cuts over the 
next three years will be between 
6.000 and 7.000 (he said) and 
that the total cuts package at 
BREL since 1979 is now more 
than 19.000. 

Despite what Mr Ridley said 
about less maintenance being 
needed, cancellations and prob- 
lems were still occurring and 
better rail services did not 
materialize. 

Southern Region mainte- 
nance was down 33 per cent 
even though the vast majority of 
stock was more than 25 years 
old. 


It would have been better to 
invest more in new passenger 
and freight rolling slock and to 
ensure that BR built in-house. 
Maintenance engineers could go 
to new-build operations. British 
Rail was losing freight because 
of lack of availability of locos. 

BREL should be the inter- 
national showcase of British 
engineering. 

Would the senior British Rail 
director be competing with the 
man from British Shipbuldeis in 
looking for employment? 

There is no point (he said) in 
the Prime Minister talking 
about slaying the dragon of 
unemployment when Mr Rid- 
ley. with shortsighted policies, is 
feeding the dragon. (Labour 
cheers). 

Mr Ridley said Mr Hughes had 
almost accepted that modem 
rolling stock required far less 
repair and maintenance than 
ever before. 

Let him ask the Chairman of 
British Rail if that was true if be 
could not accept it from a 
Government minister. 

Since Southern Region’s 
maintenance was down by 33 
per cent, did Mr Hughes expect 
British Rail to keep workshops 
the same? 

Mr Hughes should not belittle 
British Rail's achievements in 
finding new work for displaced 
people. It was making heavy 
efforts. 

He ought to know that at 
Shildon. which closed in 1984. 
710 new jobs had been found, 
with s potential to rise to 1,900 
over the next two to three years. 
Mr Stephen Ross lisle of Wight 
Lf. This is yet another sad day 
for a loyal work force. 

Mr Ridley: This is a very sad 
day for a lot of people who have 
been loyal, bard working and 
highly skilled operatives. The 
fact that the change in industrial 
technology has made this nec- 
essary is a matter of great 
sadness to all of us. 

Mr Michael Marlin (Glasgow, 
Springbum. Labe He is mislead- 
ing the House. When he talks 
about a work force of 150 at 
Springbum he is talking about’ 
total closure. He is instructing 
BR to create a tidy little package 
for privatization to sell to his 
pals who gave him aid at the 
general election. It is legalized 
gra fi- 
ll is time the minister faced 
up. to his responsibility and 
learnt a bit about engineering. A 
maintenance workshop of the 
nature of Springbum could eas- 
ily convert to new build. He is 
not prepared to help Springbum 
and once again we have been 
punished because we did not 
support the Tory Party. 

Mr Ridley: I have every sym- 
pathy for his constituents. 

In no sense has it been 
packaged in readiness for 


privatization but hived into 
British Rail instead. 

As one of the few qualified ‘ 
engineers in the House, I fully • 
understand that any works can - 
be altered to almost any type of. . ’ 
manufacturing business, but it 
must be for BR to decide where 
to put their orders, how to' “ 
organize their own business. 

Mr Conal Gregory (York, Q: 
There has been no shortage of - - 
investment for BR. The Labour - ’ 
Party are shedding crocodile . 
tears. ■ 

Under this new scheme an- 
nounced today there will be . 

potential not only - 


there- - 


or the export market but with a 
vatized bus company t! 
will be opportunities for bus and 
coach maintenance on the en- 
gineering side of BR. What 
effect will this announcement 
have upon York, where there is 
a marvellous work force? 

Mr Ridley: He is one of the ” 
lucky ones. There is to be a 
marginal increase in employ- 
meat at York. We are talking - 
about new build to a large” - 
extenL but when we concentrate, „ 
on the much more difficult ■ - 
question of repair and mainte- 
nance it is totally wrong for anyT ' 
MP to believe that when the 
work load for the repair work- “ 
shops has fallen as it has due to 
the much greater investment, in • 
some way BR should keep those ! 
people in place with no work for *. 
them. 

During further exchanges, Mr • " 
Ridley said BR had allocated a _ 
first tranche of £3 million to the - • - 
new enterprise agency and he . . 
had no doubt more would be - - 
forthcoming if it was required. “ 

Responding to Mr William ' 
Benyon (Milton Keynes. C). he — 
said BR would take all possible 
steps to provide retraining facil- . 7- 
ities and to seek extra jobs 
through the new agency it was" 'J 
proposing to set up. 

Mr Gavin Strang (Edinburgh 
East Lab) wanted public sub- -- 
sidy used to maintain jobs, but-* - 
Mr Ridley said he was asking 
(he Government to pay people 
for whom there was no work, - 
and never could be any work. „ . 

and to tax prosperous enter 

prises to make them shed jobs so - * 
that others could be kept with . 
no work in BREL workshops. 

That policy would only lead to ‘ 7 
more unemployment. 

Mr Ian Wrigglesworth (Stock- *7 * 
ton South, SDP) asked how '* 


many of the 20.000 job opportu 
nities BR promised for the 




future would go to those now 
being made redundant. 

Mr Ridley: BR believes over the 
next three years it will have to 
recruit 20.000 more people fora 
varied number of activities. I 
am sure they will give pre fe rence 
to their own employees from 
BREL 


Cults accused of child sex abuse 


HOUSE OF LORDS 

Allegations that some religions 
cnlts were involved In child sex 
abuse and used the YTS to 
seek recruits were made during 
exchanges in the House of 
Lords when Lord Rodney (C) 
asked what steps the 
Government was taking to 
combat the Increase in the 
influence of cults which 
undermined family life. 

Lord Gfenarthnr,' Under 
Secretary of State. Home 
Office, replied: Unhappiness 
and distress i$ often caused to 
individuals and families as a 
result of involvement with 
certain cnlts, particularly where 

young people are concerned. 

Bnt when cnlts act within the 
taw there is tittle scope for 


direct Govenuneat action. The 
Home Office and the 
Department of Health and 
Social Security will continue to 
keep a watch on colt activities 
and consider any fresh evidence 
that becomes available. 

Lord Rod n ey: These cnlts cake 
care to stay within the law, bat 
there are instances reported 
where some of these cahs 
indulge in child sex abase and 
some of them use the YTS 
scheme for recruitment. 

Many who have charitable 
status go well outside the 
realm of the o riginal terms of 
that status. 

Lord denanfam: The Hook 
S ecretary takes a sent) os view 
of these cults and will take note 
of what has been said. The 
Government is aware of public 
concent about the activities of 
some of these bodies* If anyone 


discovers anything or feels ■ ■ 
there is anything suitable to be - 
reported to the police, »• 
mwld be a sensible way to take 
it forward. 

Uwd Denning, former Master 
of the Rolls: I - have massive 
evidence from letters of distress - 
caused to parents fay these 7 
ralts. It b urgent that the 
Government does something, " 
Would it not be possible to 
require them all to be 
registered like any pro f essio n al 
or trade association and then ff " 
it were shown they were . . 
involved in practices which are 
harmfnl to famil y fife, they ' , 
coaid be struck off? 

Lord Gfenarthnr: Certain of the

The Allianceis on the brink 
of 9 serious division over 
defence policy. There has 
always been a basic nodertying 
difference of attitude in this 
field between Liberals and 
Social Democrats. But the 
split that is now de veinping jg 
less simple and potentially 
even more damaging. 

Dr David Owen was admira- 
bly forthright in his speech to 
the SDP Council at Southport 
on Sunday. “I must tell yon 
bluntly”, be declared, “that I 
believe we should remain a 
nuclear weapon state”. 

4 This would mean that “we 
'Twill find a replacement for 
Polaris, unless there has been 
such a massive reduction of 
unclear warheads on the part 
of the Soviet Union and the 
United States that we would 
feel It right in negotiations to 
give np our unclear weapons”. 

This statement has three 
merits. It is dear; it accords 
with SDP party policy, as 
approved at the Torquay con- 
ference last September; and it 
is consistent with what public 
opinion, as revealed in numer- 
ous opinion polls over the 
years, believes to be in the 
national interest. 




Importance of 
united front 




ince 


But the issue seems Bkdy to 
be fudged in the report that is 
expected stonily from the Joint 
commission of liberals and 
Social Democrats on defence. 
There may well be a fonn of 
words that would be open to 
. differing interpretations as to 
whether Britain should still 
bare an independent nuclear 
deterrent after the lifetime of 
Polaris. 

This would be smart politics 
if all that mattered were to get 
agreement within the Alliance. 
r . I do not scorn this conmder- 
' Nation. Because it embraces two 
parties it is all the more 
necessary for the Alliance to 
present a united front to a 
sceptical electorate; and those 
who scorn the art of compro- 
mise are all too often scorning 
the art of politics itsdft 

But to pursue a compromise 
agreement oa a point of princi- 
ple by calculated ambiguity to 
to invite a number of dangers. 
Some will say that the com- 
mission "report wSU not he 
amUgaous at all. Yet that does 
not seem to me an unfair 
desorption of a form of words 
that is almost certain to be 
interpreted in different ways 
by different people and fails to 
tell us whether an Alliance 
£ government would or would 
not be committed to preserving 
an independent deterrent after 
Polaris. 

Eh- Owen could not associate 

himself with such a Lodging 
process without standing on 
his head. Yet bewfll be asked 

to do so by members of hto own 

party. He to unlikely to oblige. 
He could not do so without 
undermining his own credibil- 
ity- • 

If he continues to speak m 
the firm tones of Sooth pert, 
however, there will probably 
not simply be the familiar, 
arguments on defence between 
Social Democrats and Liber- 
als, but controversy within the 
SDP as well. 

Some Social Democrats be- 
jfteve that he might find him- 
seif in ajminority in his own 
party. Yet to nnderent Ms 
authority on a vital nation a l 
issue would be much more 
harmful to h«, and the 
Alliance’s, standing in the 
coun&y than doing so on a 

question of tactics or pride. 


Danger of being 
inconclusive 




What too many people in 
both parties in the Alliance are 
failing to appreciate to that 
there are some issues of 
principle on which it to not 
ible to find a middle 
and on which a 
. cannot be post- 

poned without a confession of 

indecision. 

To say that an incoming 
government would have to 
dedde on the best replacement 
for Polaris according to the 
circumstances when if 
office, and on the basis of 
information that would only 
then be available to it, wornd 
seem to me reasonable. But 
whether Britain should have 
an independent detencBt at aB 
is a dedsiofl of a different 
Order. __ . 

The Conservatives win be 
,wSMe to say that after careful 
- consideration they have con- 
cluded that there should be a 
successor to Polaris. Labour 
will be able to say that after 
careful consideration it has 
concluded that there should 
;.,i ' net be. The Alliance is to 
, danger of having to sa 3; that 
i Vcjvifker careful eaasideranoB «

Police fear public will 
demand to carry own 
weapons for protection 


By Stewart Terafler, Crime Reporter 


The public will demand the 
legal right to cany defensive 
weajjons if police manpower is 
not increased or the tide of 
violent crime aimed, a senior 
official of the Police Federa- 
tion said yesterday at .the 
organization’s annual confer- 
ence in Scarborou gh 

The prediction camp, amid 
figures showing the need for a 
radical increase in police es- 
tablishments, . protests, at a 
dramatic slump in police mo- 
rale and demands for a royal 
commission into the police 
which could become official 
federation policy by 
midsummer. 

The sergeants' section of the 
federation, which rup n^ti 
120,000 officers up to the rank 
of chief inspector, unanimous* 
(y called yesterday for such an 
inquiry. 

The wanting that the public 
might abandon their faith in 
the police and demand to' 
protect themselves came dur- 
ing a special presentation on 
manpower problems made to 
the constables’ section of the 
federation, the hugest single 
component of the organ- 
ization. 

Mr Steven Barrett, chair- 
man of the constables section 
said a chronic shortage of 
manpower existed and “the 
blue line is thinner and 
thinner.” 


“The fear of crime has 
become so prevalent that it is 
reducing the quality of fife 
within the society,” he 
said. There were “horrendous 
implications for the future” if 
no action was taken. 

The 1951 Prevention of 
Crimes Act which forbids 
carrying a weapon or anything 
construed as a weapon 
amounted to a contract be- 
tween Parliament and the 
people to protect them from 
crime Mr Barrett, of the 
Metropolitan police, said. 

“Should crime, particularly 
. violent crime, continue to 
escalate there will come soon- 
er or later a demand for the 
repeal of the Act and the right 
to carry weapons of defence,” 
he said. 

Mr Barrett spoke at the end 
of a debate which included 
figures showing that although 
police manpower has doubled 
since I960 the crime load has 
quadrupled. In January this 
year only 2 out of 43 forces in 
England and Wales were up to 
full strength. 

During the debate blame . 
was placed on Home Office 
attempts to get greater effi- 
ciency in the pobce and rely 
more bedvily on civilian 
manpower. 

The. message from the 
constables' debate was echoed 
by the sergeants. Mr Anthony 


Crow, the chairman of the 
sergeants section, said the 
Home Office is now in a 
dilemma trying to balance 
past promises of reducing the 
cost of public services against 
the realization that the Crimi- 
nal Evidence Act will cost 
millions. 

In thedebate in the call fora 
Royal Commission, delegates 
were told by Mr Geoffrey 
Smith, Metropolitan Police, 
that police morale and confi- 
dence was at rode bottom. 
Faced with the various politi- 
cal debates and changes on 
policing he said: “How can we 
have confidence in our ability 
to protect the people when 
assailed by such constant and 
vicious bickering about our 
role." 

He said there was a need for 
an independent audience to 
hear police fears. 

He raid the primary task of 
the police was impartial main- 
tenance of the rule of law. He 
asked: “But does that view 
still find favour in the eyes of 
many citizens who see every 
week large numbers of police 
gather near their homes 
dressed in special clothing 
with riot helmets and shields 
to impartially protect a prun- 
ing plan L" 

He said: “I suggest they see 
us making political decisions 
and that cannot be right.” 


Havers move in Sikhs’ trial 


Sir Michael Havers, QC, the 
Attorney General, has inter- 
vened in the case in which an 
undercover policeman said 
that his life could be in danger 
if he was identified in proceed- 
ings against four Sikhs ac- 
cused of plotting to kill the- 
Indian Prime Minister. 

Mr Peter Crane, for the 
Director of Public Prosecu- 
tions, applying yesterday for a 
further adjournment of the 
commital proceedings until 
tomorrow, told magistrates at 
Leicester that the Attorney 
General was considering what 
course to take, but it was likely 
an application would be made 
to the Divisional Court for a 
judicial review of the decision. 

He said: “The prosecution 
is extremely concerned about 
the safety of the officer. Our 
submission to that his life may 
be in danger. We are dealing 


By Craig Seton 

with extremely grave 
matters." 

The policeman, known only 
as “Detective Constable B , 
told the court on Monday that 
he would not give evidence if 
he was named in court He has 
been accused by a defence 
lawyer of acting with another 
undercover policeman as an 
‘‘agent provocateur and 
en trapper” to implicate the 
four Leicester Sikhs in a plot 
that would otherwise not nave 
existed. 

The Sikhs are accused of 
conspiring to murder Mr 
Rajiv Gandhi during his visit 
to Britain last October in an 
alleged £60,000 plot using two 
“IRA gunmen", who were, in 
fact undercover policemen. 

“Detective Constable B” 
has agreed in court that hetold 
the Sikhs that he was the IRA 
man responsible for killing Mr 


Airey Neave, who was then 
Conservative spokesman on 
Northern Ireland, whose car 
was Mown up at die House of 
Commons in 1979. 

Mr William Probert, the 
stipendiary magistrate, ruled 
that the policeman could give 
evidence as “Detective Con- 
stable B”, provided his name 
and force were made known to 
defence lawyers 

In mail Singh Rannana, 

aged 45, a company director, 
Savinder Singh Gill, aged 30, a 
dyer, and Parma tina Singh 
Marwaha, aged 43, a factory 
owner, are charged with con- 
spiracy and soliciting two 
undercover policemen. Detec- 
tive Constable B and “Ian S”, 
to murder Mr Gandhi. 

A fourth defendant,. 
Harminder Singh: Rai. aged 
30, a director, is also charged 
with conspiracy to -murder.

Paying for crime: 3 

Law gives greater 
weight to the 
case for the victim 


Greater emphasis is being put 
on victims’ rights in the penal 
svstem. Peter Evans. Home 
Affairs Correspondent, in the 
third of three art icles, charts 
the benefits and dangers. 

The growth in reparation in 
England and Wales is part of a 
big change in the basis of penal 
justice. 

It modifies the notion, de- 
veloped by Henry H. that an 
offence by one person against 
another is not simply a matter 
between them but a breach of 
the King's peace and a threat 
to the security and wellbeing 
of the whole of society. 

Since the twelfth century, 
the Crown has taken more and 
more responsibility for deal- 
ing with offenders on behalf of 
the victim and punishing 
them. 

The reparation done by an 
offender to his or her victim 
makes inroads into that con- 
cept, although the courts, po- 
lice and probation service still 
act as referee and an as 
safeguards for the Queen's 
peace. 

Reparation still has to satis- 
fy the criteria of authority, not 
just the offender and victim. 

Nevertheless, the relation- 
ship between the two is being 
put on a different footing. The 
victim is becoming increasing- 
ly important 

Another sign of the forces at 
work in the penal system is the 
latest Criminal Justice Act, 
which contains the principle 
that in a wide range of cases 
the court's duty is to the 
victim rather than to the Slate. 

The Act breaks with pre- 
cedent in allowing courts to 
make a compensation order 
instead of dealing with an 
offender in any other way. 
Previously the order could be 
made only in addition to 
another form of punishment 

The Act also rays that a 
court should give precedence 
to the compensation order in a 
case in which it would be 
appropriate to impose a fine as 
well, but in which the offender 
has not enough money to pay 
both. 

There remain gaps. Al- 
though the Criminal Injuries 
Compensation Board was cre- 
ated to provide money -for 
victims of violence, it does not 
do so for property stolen or 
destroyed. 


The weakness in the system 
of compensation ordered by 
courts is that it happens only 
when offenders are convicted. 
There is a lack of compensa- 
tion for victims who are poor 
and suffer loss of goods or 
money when the offender is 
not convicted. 

One suggestion is that the 
Criminal Injuries Compensa- 
tion Board should take on the 
job of compensating people 
who have suffered financial 
loss, though the argument 
against it is the enormous cost. 

But victims do get aid of a 
different kind from the fast- 
growing National Association 
of Victims Support Schemes. 
There are now 293 schemes 
compared with 194 in May 
1984. 

Between April 1984 and 
March 1985 a total of 125,691 
victims were referred to 
schemes for advice or help in 
dealing with practical needs, 
such as replacing windows 
broken by burglars or assis- 
tance in filling in forms to 
claim compensation. 

The question is how much 
of a place the victim should 
have in the penal process. 

The criminal justice system 
appears to give little help or 
consideration to victims of 
crime, according to a survey of 
courts and police conducted 
for a Central Television docu- 
mentary Viewpoint 86: Vic- 
tims to be shown on Tuesday. 

Some states in America 
require that victims be inr 
formed of any contemplated 
plea agreement according to 
Professor LeRoy Lam born, of 
Wayne State University, in 
the Canadian Community 
Law Journal. 

The victims can then tell the 
prosecutor of their views and 
be present when the judge 
considers the prosecutor's rec- 
ommendation. Some courts 
voluntarily consider the rec- 
ommendations of advisory 
sentencing panels, which at 
limes include the victims of 
the crimes. 

California even gives vic- 
tims or their next-of-kin the 
right to notice of and atten- 
dance at the sentencing of the 
offender to express their 
views, personally or by coun- 
sel. concerning foe crime, foe 
offender and the need for 
restitution. 

Concluded 


Times position on 
Titanic upheld 


The Press Council has res 
jected complaints that The 
Times refused to print letters 
defending a dead liner 
captain’s reputation after 
printing article about the 
Titanic which criticized him. 

The council rays today that 
newspapers are free to publish 
comment or expert views on 
historical events without nec- 
essarily opening their columns ' 
to general debate. 

A report from Christopher 
Thomas in Washington said 
foe discovery of foe' Titanic 
seemed to have revealed a 
cover-up or an outright lie by 
foe captain of foe Californian, 
foe American liner that was 
sailing ahead of foe Titanic. 

The report from foe Califor- 
nian showed that she was 20 
miles away all night and 
therefore could not rescue any 
of the passengers. In fact she 
seemed to have been extreme- 
ly close, the story said. 

According to foe story, Dr 
Robert Ballard, leader of foe 
expedition which found the 
Titanic in 1 3,000 feet of water, 
used data from another liner, 
foe Carpathia, which had 
picked up survivors. 

Mr Leslie Harrison, of 
Gayton, WirraL former gener- 
al secretary of the Mercantile 
Marine Service Association, 
wrote to Dr Ballard to say his 
own book based on Captain 
Stanley Lord’s papers of foe 
Californian was to be pub- 
lished. He hoped Dr Ballard 
would either refute the argu- 
ments in it or withdraw his 

own. „ • 

Not satisfied with Dr 
Ballard's reply that folly 
documented results would be 
published later. Mr Harnson 
wrote to The Times sending 
material on which he hoped 
an article correcting foe record 
could be prepared. As an 
alternative he sent a letter for 
publication. 

Jdr Leon Pilpei, letters edi- 
tor. replied regretting that foe 
letter could not be published 
but saying foe material would 
be kept for pos^le reference. 

Mr Pilpel said Dr Ballard s 
remarks about foe Californian 
were incidental to fais disclo- 
sures about foe location of foe 


wreck. The role of the Califor- 
nian remained in dispute and 
The Times did not regard it as 
a duty to publish a contradic- 
tion every time an improved 
inference by someone found a 
place in its columns. 

Mr Harrison asked whether 
foe newsworthiness of a sensa- 
tional attack on a dead man’s 
reputation overrode the moral 
obligation to publish foe less 
sensational truth. 

He complained to foe Press 
Council that a report about 
comments by foe leader of foe 
team that discovered the 
Titanic contained a factually 
inaccurate attack on foe late 
captain of another ship in- 
volved and foe editor declined 
to puMish letters in defence. 

Others also wrote letters to 
The Times on the subject 
which were not published and 
complained to the council. 

Mr Colin Webb, who was 
then deputy editor, told Mr 
Harrison that Dr Ballard’s 
rWrm was not an issue which 
called for a rebuttal in fairness 
from “the other side”. When a 
claim was made by a responsi- 
ble person in public it became 
news. 

Mr Webb was sure that 
when Mr Harrison's book was 
published it would be worthy 
of a news report in its own 
right But The Times would 
not automatically give letter 
space to someone who said he 
was wrong. 

The Press Council's adjudi- 
cation was: 

The Times might well have 
chosen to publish the 
complainants' comments on the 
grounds, that conflicting ac- 
counts and interpretations of 
the loss of the Titanic were still 
of continuing general interest, 
fan h was not. obliged to do so 
and the derision was one for the 
editor. 

Although Captain Lord did 
not die until 1962 and Titanic's 
loss 50 years earlier was itself 
relatively recent, ft was an 
historical event. Newspapers are 
free to comment on historical 
issues and to publish the view of 
historians or experts on them 
without necessarily opening 
their columns to erhiasro of 
those views or to $meral debate. 

The complaint against The 
Times is therefore rejected. 


Privacy code breached 


The Press CounciTs declara- 
tion of principle on privacy 
was broken when a newspaper 
identified foe wife of a man. 
accused of indent assault on 
bovs. foe council rays today. 

hi a complaint against the 
Eastbourne Gazette, which 
upheld. Miss 

Murphy, of Eastbourne, East 
Sussex* toW the council that 
could not reran , ay 
similar case reported 1 m the 

newspaper m which, the 


defendant's spouse had been 
named. 

She raid the wife, in the case 
in question did not hold 
public office and there was no 
suggestion that she bad been 
involved in . foe alleged 
offences. 

The’ editor, Mr Eric Redr 
fern, said the couple were well 
known members of foe com- 
munity and the newspaper 
was doing its duly in what ft 
reported.

Ever since BMW invented the sports saloon our cars 
have had their followers. And the latest 3 Series gives them 
an unusual amount to admire. 

It has a choice of four different engines (from 1.8 litres 
to 2.5 litres) in a body that's just 14 foot long. And it 
offers a level of both performance and refinement 
normally only found in much larger cars. 

Now it offers both more. And less. 

EIGHT MORE DOORS IN THE RANGE. 

Each of the four cars in the BMW 3 Series can now 
come with two extra doors for an extra £450. 

You’ll also find we've created more rear headroom 
and legroom by repositioning the fuel tank. Which means 
the 3 Series is not just more comfortable to get into, it is 
more comfortable to stay in as well. 

Wp PRICE ISN'T THE SAME AS COST. 

Many people are surprised to find that a BMW 
$98*^ 3 series can cost less than a mass produced car. 
“■"So The comparison becomes even more favourable 
§ if you look at the total cost of a car including 
> everything from servicing to depreciation. 

Taking all that into account the figures add up in 
a way that may surprise you. 

mm For example, ‘Company Car’ showed thatthe total 
» cost over 45,000 miles of a BMW 318i was less than 
W cars in the same price class from three leading mass 
^producers. The biggest contribution to this is the extra- 
ordinarily low depreciation of a BMW. 

The study showed the 318i loses value at a rate of 
8.02 pence per mile. A typical mass produced car loses its 
value at 1 1.83 pence per mile. 

Multiply that by 45,000 miles and 
you can see how the initial extra price of ||g^^ 

a BMW soon disappears. Ill 

Mm DRIVING IS MORE FUN §§§ 

JPgi THAN STEERING. W Ik 

Y llll Nobody of course buys a 

BMW just to lower their motoring^^^ . ’ 

^Pcosts.They choose them because . 

si BMWs are one of the few cars N ^^^^^ 
jg that are tautly engineered as 
m driving machines. 

* Even the least expensive car, the 
MM 316, has an engine with the same cylinder 
block used in the BMW racing engines that 

Y have won 7 World and European championships. 

And every engine, whether it is four or six cylinders,^ 
releases its power with a smooth fluidity that makes other 
engines seem flustered and ungainly. 

THE ADVANTAGE OF NOT BEING MASS PRODUCED. 

Performance alone has never been a recommendation 
for a BMW 3 Series. It’s also the way the cars are constructed. 

For whatever the price, we only have one standard. 

A quarter of the time spent building every BMW is 
spent painting it. 

The inside of every BMW cylinder is honed twice. 

All of which helps explain the way in which BMWs 
are still worth driving when other cars become an expensive 
embarrassment 

THINK OF THE NEXT 45.000 MILES. 

May we suggest you try the front door of a BMW3 Series. 

There are 12 different models (including the four 
Cabriolet versions) to choose from so one of them is likely to 
fit your needs. 

Certainly, if you are planning to buy a car a 

in our price range, it must make sense to try SWl i 

a BMW. 

Now you know how little there is stopping you.

Exchange dealers said the

political initiatives had been 
scuppered by the attacks, and 
that the chances of full-scale 
economic sanctions now being 
imposed on South Africa were 
much greater. 

„ There has been widespread 
condemnation here of the 
South African raids on alleged 
African National Congress 
(ANC) targets in Zimbabwe, 
Zambia and Botswana. The 
only wholehearted support 
has come from extreme right- 
wing white political parties.

Community leads 
condemnations 


By Onr Foreign Staff 


The European Community's 
executive Commission yester- 
day joined worldwide con- 
demnation of South African 
raids in Botswana, Zambia 
and Zimbabwe and hinted the 
Co mmunit y might consider 
economic sanctions on Pre- 
toria. 

The raids, against alleged 
bases of the outlawed African 
National Congress fighting the 
Pretoria regime, were con- 
demned by two Commission- 
ers, Signor Lorenzo Natali and 
Mr wuly de Clercq. 

They said that South 
Africa’s actions would be ex- 
amined in the light of Com- 
munity moves last year aimed 
at persuading Pretoria to end 
apartheid, which fell short of 
demands for economic sanc- 
tions, mainly due to opposi- 
tion in London and Bonn. 

Mr Abdou Dioul the chair- 
man of the. Organizational 
African Unity said the raids 
were “state terrorism*’ and 


called on the United Nations 
to, enforce mandatory eco- 
nomic sanctions against Pre- 
toria. 

Mr Diouf said that the 
attacks would show the “real 
face of the hated (South 
African) regime” to those who 
still fell apartheid, the policy 
of racial segregation, could be 
reformed. He said the raids 
were deliberate terrorist acts. 

The Soviet Union issued a 
fresh denunciation, suggesting 
that the attacks were inspired 
by recent US and Israeli 
military action in the Middle 
East. 

All sides of the federal 
parliam ent in Australia joined 
m unequivocal condemnation 
of the raids. 

China condemned South 
Africa and said the black 
peoples of South Africa were 
certain to win the final victory 
no matter what the white 
minority did.

Tim Jordanian security au- 
thorities are drawing op a 
report for King Husain on why 
their own riot police stormed 
into one of the country’s 
largest universities at lrind, 
provoking a mass panic in 
which three students died and 
more fo«n 60 others were 
injured. 

Doctors and university 
teachers confirmed to The 
Times yesterdaythat two girls 
— one of them physically 
handicapped — and a male 
student died at Yarmouk Uni- 
versity in Irbid, apparently 
crushed to death in the panic 
when riot police with clubs 
entered the campus a week 
ago. 

At least 60 of the students 
were taken by ambulances to 
the Princess Basma Hospital, 
many of them — according to 
the director. Dr Abdul Hasez 
Moaami — bearing the marks 
of beatings. 

Jordan is not a country 
whose universities are in tur- 
moil, nor has student violence 
ever been a threat to King 
Hosain. 

There has been trouble at 
Irbid before — over vacation 
tuition fees and, briefly, in 
opposition to America’s air 
raids on Libya — but on 
'Wednesday night last week, 
the security police appear lo

King Husain has taken a

Exactly what happened a 
week ago is stiQ in dispute. 
There had been a number of 
demonstrations — by perhaps 
no more fo«n 800 students — 
who were angry at the expul- 
sion of five undergraduates. 

On Thursday last week, two 
of IrbuTs leading figmes — the 
mayor, Mr Abdul-Razak 
Tbeishat, and a local deputy 
sympathetic to the Muslim 
Brotherhood, Dr Ahmed 
Kofahi, were asked to negoti- 
ate with student leaders.

campus, they would not be 
permitted to return for their 
exams. They stayed in the 
university, and just before 
midnight on Thursday night, 
the security police fired ma- 
chine-guns into the air outside 
the gates, and then ran into the 
campus. 

According to one student, 
the gjrls stood in a circle round 
the men to protect them along 
a road leading from the univer- 
sity canteen, and the police 
began by batoning the women. 

According to Dr Elias 
Beidoun, assistant to the uni- 
versity principal, one of his 
biolog? students, Marawa 
Tafaa, “had difficulty in walk- 
ing fast because she was 
handicapped, a hunchback 
and very small”. Two hours 
later, Marawa’s body was 
taken to the Eidoun military 
hospital. 

At die Princess Basma hos- 
pital, Dr Monami says he 
received two corpses, that of 
Maha Kassem and of 
Mofaamed Hamdan, whose 
home was in Jerusalem. 
“They really had no visible 
marks on them,” he said 
yesterday. 

“ Of the 60 students brought 
to our hospital, three had 
fractures in their hands, others 
had bruises due to being 
beaten or falling down.” 

The police say that their 
own men suffered 17 injured. 


Close call 
for Dutch 
coalition, 
say polls 

Amsterdam — Final opin- 
ion polls for today’s Dutch 
parliamentary elections show 
that the ruling centre-right 
coalition of Christian Demo- 
crats and conservative Liber- 
als led by Mr Ruud Lubbers 
might lose its majority in the 
1 50-seat lower house, winning 
not more than 73 seats (Rob- 
ert Schuil writes). 

The coalition may just win 
three residual seats - divided 
among ihe-Jargesi parties from 
votes for small parties who 
win no seats — to take a one- 
seat majority. But Labour is 
expected to be tbe moral 
victor, with the polls predict- 
ing a seven seat gain to 54 
seats. 

Gulf wrangle 
settled 

Bahrain (Reuter) — Saudi 
Arabia, mediating in a territo- 
rial wrangle between Bahrain 
and Qatar, says both countries 
have agreed to resolve the 
dispute on the basis of propos- 
als presented by King Fahd. 

The dispute flared last 
month when Qatar sent troops 
to occupy a reef midway 
between the two Gulf emirates 
and seized 30 foreign workers, 
including two Britons. 

Soviet envoy 

Moscow — Mr Yuri 
Dubinin, a former ambassa- 
dor to Spain, has been named

You don’t have to drive many miles

broaden the mind. It also cites the body 

Which is why, when Porsche 
developed the 928 to be the definitive; 
modern-day grand touring car, the over- 
riding concern was not status, but stamina. 

How couliTPorscfc'cbnseive'dir ~~ 
driver's energy while best utilising the car’s? 
First, create the ideal driving environ- 
ment. Thus the 928S Series 2 has a cabin 
interior which makes you feel ar ease 
immediately. 

To improve comfort and car control, 
front seats are electrically powered .for 
height, reach and back adjustment. 


Instrumentation is rather accommo- 
dating too. Not only will die steering 
column adjust, but the entire instrument 
binnacle moves with it. 

There’s a H-fu notion safety warning 
system that monitors the car while you 
watch the road. 

While to prevent those annoyingly 
frequent adjustments to heating and 
ventilation, . the 928 s climate control 
maintains your pre-set temperature 
automatically. 

Minor details make a major difference 
too. The air-conditioned glove box, 
for example. The electric, heated door 
mirrors. The unique, screen-cleaning 
system thar removes difficult bugs and 
smears. Even the ashtray is illuminated. 

But more enlightening is the 
experience of drivings 928. V8 power and 
first-rate roadholding make this one 
of the most relaxing cars in the world to 
control. 

Not only is it quicker from A to B. 
it’s smoother. 



-Opt for the 4-speed automatic and 
the 928 performs more effortlessly stifl. 

. Yer it lacks little of the manual’s mid- 

range punch. 

Instant response at any speed makes 
overtaking manoeuvres swifter and there- 
foresafet. ■ - - 
.. ' j Should you thotise to cruise ail day 
at 70, that’s no problem.

OVERSEAS NEWS 


Israelis shocked by 



report on armed forces 


A detailed and biting report 

- claiming that ia^rs proud 
,« defence forces are becoming 

less and less capable of figh£ 
tng, has shocked politicians 
-*-here and may precipitate a 
-* major shake-up in the armed 
_ forces— 18 months after it was 
completed. 

The report was prepared by 
■-a brilliant academic, . Dr 
„ Emmanual Wald, who was a 
--colonel in the Army's plan- 

?i2R-- b S? nel L in September 
... 1 982 when he was asirwH to 
•' prepare a report on the lessons 
of the Lebanese war., 

~ . When he finished it he was 
j; given permission to research 

— the command structure back 
lfc to the 1967 Six-Day War and 

the 1973 Yom Kippur War. 


From Ian Moray, Jerusalem 


. The second report was fin- 
ished in August 1983 
concluded that the . fcrnf Ji 
deficiencies in Lebanon could 
be traced back to the' earfipr 
conflicts. 

Dr Wald was then given a 
new job by General Moshe 
Levy, the. Chief of. SiafE to 
prepare a multi-year p&n for 
an armed forces &uild-up. 
Dozens of researchers were 
assigned to help him.. - ' * 

From then on he appears to 
have run foul of his superiors. 
He now claims he was not 
given access to the documents 
he required. 

He was eventually arrested 
on suspicion of spying -when 
he was caught photo-copying 
documents, taken from the 


Protest to EEC at 
Arafat meeting 


Fran Ian Mmray, Jerusalem 


Representatives from all 1 ?

mooed to the Israeli Foreign 

V Ministry today to be told they 
■* will be supporting terrorism H 
a meeting goes ahead next 
I week in Tank between Mr 
*• Hans van den Broek aid Mr 

- YassEr Arafat. 

^ Mr van den Broek, the 
•-* Dutch Foreign Minister, is 
'* also currently President of the 
i EECs Council of Ministers. 

The idea that be should agree 
** to meet the PLO Chairman in 
this capacity has caused ftn- 

- mediate anger here. 

Mr Yitzhak Shamir, the 
Foreign Minister, told the 
president of the West German 
Bundestag, Herr Philip Jenn- 
inger, the meeting would not 
be helpful. 

Asking for West German 

- support to block it, Mr Shamir 
said that it would be a blow to 
King Husain of Jordan, who 

^ had ended political links with 
*- the PLO. At tile same time it 
would encourage extremists 

- and elements of terrori sm . 

“’For Arafat the meeting 
j alone is enough, regardless oi 
u bat is said," Mr Shamir said. 

A Foreign Ministry spokes- 
man raid that the protest was 
... being made to tile EEC coun- 
• tries even though ft was stffl 
.. not dear whether toe meeting 
would take place. 

Mr HBmiui ; Selrima^ f e£tor 
of A! Ftgr ; a leading West 
Bank newspaper and a moder- 
ate Palestinian leader, said 


that if flie meeting mot ahead 
Mr Arafat would tell the 
Dutch Minister Oat “Rales- - 
tinians everywhere ore work- 
ing for a peaceful solution. 
They want peace, they desire 
peace, they are working for 
peace." 

Mr Seniors was speaking 
after a meeting with- Signor 
Gmtio Andreetti, the Italian 
Foreign Minister,' in East 
Jerusalem. He was told by a 
delegation of fom 
Palestinians that tile 
must press ahead with toe 
implementation of its Venice 
Declaration on the Palestinian 



tiie right of sdf-detenninafion 
for Palestinians and insists 
that the PLO most have a role 
in 

According to Israeli 'offi- 
cials, Signor Andreotti had 
agreed during a meeting with 
Mr Shamir that the declara- 
tion was “not operative".

cials in the Hague said yester-

(Richard Owen writes).

safe of the head of toe. plan- 
ning branch. An investigation 
showed he was not a spy. .and 
he was allowed to continue toe 
report, which he finished in 
November 1984 — 700-pages 
of harsh criticism. 

It concluded that the mili- 
tary command had foiled to 
leant toe lessons of earlier 
wars or . even toe Lebanese 
war. -Hie army had become 
more bureaucratic-' and' less 
capable of fighting. The mid- 
dle command was now flJ- 
trained, poorly motivated and 
less qualified than in toe past. 

General Levy decided to 
show toe report to only one 
other senior officer, who in 
turn decided that only part of 
it would be presented for 
discussion at general staff 
level In disgust. Dr Wald 
resigned Ms permanent com- 
mission and returned to an 
academic life. 

Nothing mudi was heard 
publicly of the report until last 
Friday, when a television 
documentary . brought . the 
matter to the attention of 
politicians. Now the Knesset's 
Foreign AffeiiS and Defence 
Committee is appointing a 
subcommittee to investigate 
what happened. 

A new fiye-year defence 
plan is due to be completed in 
a few weeks, and toe Knesset 1 
wants to know bow much of 
the . Wald report has been 
taken into consideration. 

It is clear that the report 
'pinpoints one area which is. 
causing General Levy con- 
cern: the high drop-out rate of 
officers, who claim they can 
no longer afford to stay in the 
Army on present low pay 
scales. This is being studied by - 
army bureaucrats. 



Costs that 
found the 
scouts not 
prepared 


From Christopher Thomas 
Washington 


American boy scouts are being 
Mi by toe staggering increase 
in liability insurance costs that 
is sweeping the country. 

Every scout troop and cub 
pack is having to pay a special 
520 (£13) levy, enough to 
threaten the survival of groups 
in areas like Harlem. 

Nothing like it has hap- 
pened in the 76-year history of 
scouting in America. Officials 
say that accidents are rare but, 
of course, the scouts must be 
prepared. . 

Mr Lawrence Potts, chief 
financial officer, pointed out: 
“Scouts just don't sit around 
reading. They row boats, go 
skiing, play basketball and 
football. Some of them get 
injured." 

He added: “If a scout is hurt 
at a den or troop meeting, 
given the practice of today 
that scout's family will be 
besieged by attorneys who tell 
them that they should be 
compensated." 

As an example, the New 
York Council of the Boy 
Scouts, the largest in the 
coin try, must pay $106,000 
(£68,400)fbr liability insur- 
ance next year, compared with

Tokyo politics in 
disarray as PM 
seeks double poll 


From Darid Watts, Tokyo 


Anyone who believes Japan 
Is a friction-free political ma- 
chine where self- interest dis- 
solves in the free of the public 
good should take a quick look 
at the political scene today. 

Near-chaos reigns, not only 
in relations between the ruling 
Liberal Democratic Party 
(LDP) and the opposition 
parties, but within the LDP 
itself. The argument centres 
mainly on whether there are to 
be elections for both the Upper 
and Lower Hoases of toe Diet 
this snmmer. 

- Upper House ejections are 
already doe, but the Prime 
Minister, Mr Yasnbiro Naka- 
soue, wants to take advantage 
of his party's unusually high 
level of popularity and hold 
elections for the Lower House 
as weU. 

Not only are die four Oppo- 
sition parties against the idea, 
but practically all the leading 
power brokers and three for- 
ma- Prime Ministers in the 
rating party areas well 

The Opposition parties are 
afraid- that Mr Nakasoae 
might succeed in ridding the 
LDP of its dependence on 
coalition partners and recoup 
its poor performance at the 
last eJectionJIis party col- 
leagues hare no such plausible 
strategic explanation for their 
opposition to the Prime 
Minister. 

The former Prime Ministers 

— Mr Takeo Fuknda, Mr 
Takeo Miki and Mr Zenko 
Suzuki — are all driven either 
by old grudges against the 
Prime Minister or jealousy 
that he might pull off a party 
first — a third term as Prime 
Minister. 

In order to have elections to 
both the Upper and Lower 
Houses, Mr Nakasoae has to 
dissolve the Diet. The problem 
is that the current session aids 


tomorrow and he most dissolve 
it before then or contrive 
reasons for another session or 
an extension of the present 
one. 

The opposition and his own 
snpportres have been warning 
him i fra* torn must be due 

reason to dissolve both Houses 

Lacking substantive issues 
for passage through the Diet, 
except a package of measures 
to help those firms hard hit by 
the increase in the value ct the 
yen, or the reform of the 
national railways, the Prime 
Minister is fighting to have 
toe session extended or to 
convene an extra session to 
nm through tiie first week of 
June. This would allow him to 
dissolve both Hoases for an 
election some time in late June 
or July. 

Complicating the picture is 
legislation on the re-distribu- 
tion of Diet seats, now heavily 
favouring the ruling party in 
rural areas, which the Speaker 
of tiie House, Mr Mtehio 
Sakata, has decreed mast be 
promulgated a month before 
the announcement of an elec- 
tion date. 

Today, Mr Nakasoae will 
meet leaders of the Opposition 
for what is likely to be a very 
tough session as he tries to 
persuade them that his mo- 
tives are of the highest for an 
extra session oftoe Diet Later 
in the day he is due to meet the 
five top officials of Us own 
party who will deride whether 
or not to endorse his plan for 
an extra session. 

It is an open question which 
of his two audiences the Prime 
Minister will find the more 
critical. What Is certain, how- 
ever, is that nobody has the 
remotest idea what the next 
few weeks of Japanese politics 
will bring.

At UK Ninex Ltd , it is our job to implement the 
Government's strategy for the safe and efficient disposal of 
low- level radioactive waste. It is our wish to provide anyone 
who asks us with details of our proposals. 

Yet before a single container of this type of waste can 
be disposed of anywhere, we will have to prove that our 
plans are safe. 

. , First of ail at a major Public Inquiry. But also to the 

Department of the Environment, the Ministry of Agriculture, 

Fisheries and Food, the Department of Transport, the 
Radioactive Vtoste Management Advisory Committee 
and the Nuclear Installations Inspectorate. 

Parliament will shortly decide whether or not 

SQQM 



to authorise a Special Development Order; which will give us 
permission to start engineering field work on four possible 
disposal sites in England. Eventually one site may be chosen 
for development 

If the Order is granted we will still have a great 
deal to do before we will be allowed to put our ideas into 
practice. 

V\fe haven't the space here to give you detailed 
information about low-level radioactive waste - or 
radioactivity in general. So if you'd like to know more, please

Peacock angry 
at Hawke plan 
for separate 
defence pacts 


From Stephen Taylor, Sydney 


A plan by the Hawke Gov- 
ernment to maintain separate 
defence arrangements with the 


*ew 


denounced by the opposition 
as an abandonment of hs 
obligations to the Anzus pact, 
which appears to be sliding 
towards a formal breach. 


Mr Andrew Peacock, a for- 
mer Foreign Minister, said 
yesterday Australia was the 
only party in a position to 
mediate in the nuclear dispute 
between the Reagan and 
Lange administrations, and 
Canberra's neglect of this role 
had allowed toe region’s “ulti- 
mate guarantee" to collapse. 


“To accept that your 
country’s most basic treaty 
has simply unravelled and do 
nothing about h indicates that 
you are adopting the attitude 
of the detached bystander," 
Mr Peacock said. 


His remarks coincide with 
the latest of a series of large 
Pacific exercises, code-named 
■Rimpac 86, from which New 
Zealand has been excluded by 
the US because of the dispute. 
Four other nations - Britain, 
Australia, Canaria and Japan, 
are engaged in the exercise 


which involves 50 ships and 
50,000 military personnel 

The hardening of attitudes 
has caused Canberra to con- 
sider alternatives i£ as now 
seems inevitable, Wellington 
pushes through legislation to 
bar nu dear-armed or nudear- 
powered ships, and Washing- 
ton formally scraps its 35- 
year-old defence commitment 
to New Zealand. 

The Government has not 
issued any clear statement on 
these contingencies, bat a 
Labour backbencher said this 
week that the idea of separate 
treaties with the two countries 
was well advanced. 

During the visit by Mr Bob 
Hawke, the Prime Minister, to 
Washington last month. State 
Department officials said he 
and President Reagan had 
agreed to exchange letters 
affirming that the US and 
Australia would together keep 
Aozus alive. This is taken as 
meaning that the pact would 
simply be redefined as a 
bilateral agreement 

Canberra has urged the 
Lange Government not to 
bring in anti-nuclear legisla- 
tion but has stopped short of 
condemnation.

China signs Australian smelter deal 


Mr

Bob Hawke, the Australian Prime 
Minister, m Peking before the signing of a £45 
millio n agreement to provide 3%008 tonnes of 
Australian dnmbrium a year to China by 1988. 

Mr Zhao Ziyang, the Chinese Premier, 
joined Mr Hawke at the signing ceremony at 
the Great Hall of the People (Rater reports). 
In what officials said was Peking's biggest 


foreign investment, the China International 
Trust and Investment Corporation fa to take a 
10 per cent stake in a troubled smelter owned 
by Alcoa of Australia in Portland^ Victoria. 

After the ceremony Mr Hawke, who is on a 
six-day visit, was gaest at a Western-style 
banquet In his meeting with Mr Deng, they 
discussed China's development and 
affairs. 


When BraziTs Finance Min- 
ister, Scnhor Dihon Funaro, 
declared recently that his 
country could finish the year 
with a 4per cent inflation rate; 
“comparable to that of 
Switzerland", the casual lis- 
tener might weB have bear 
incredulous. 

After aft, was this not the 
economy with the biggest 
foreign debt ($103 billion) m 
the developing world and a 
recent inflation rate of250 per 
cent? 

That was the old BiaziL A 
new Brazil, the nation's lead- 
ers say, was born on February 
28, , when President Josfe 
Sarney announced an “eco- 
nomic shock” plan. Modelled 
.on President AlfbnsuTs Aus- 
tral plan ■ in Argentina, die 
reform froze wages and prices, 
liaced the ailing cruzeiro 
with a new, strong currency 
(the cruzado);- ami ended the 
system of indexing wages to 
the inflation rale. 

Now. just three months 
later, the first battles in this 
“life or death war against 
inflation" appear to have been 
won. 

In March and April infla- 
tion was kept under 1 per cent 
and prices of many consumer 
tods have fellen- 
Al though Argentina's infla- 
tion fell after the Austral plan, 
the economy continued to 
wallow in recession. By con- 
trast, Brazifs economy con- 
tinues to grow and may come 
dose to matching the spectac- 
ular 1985 growth rate of 8 per 


: cent, one of tire bights! in the 
world. 

Encouraged by the stabi- 
lized economy,, some indus- 
tries have stepped up ixt- 
v e stm e n t S L ' Exports are still 
booming and the trade surplus 
is expected to reach SI2 
trillion. . 

The cruzado plan has also 
been a virtual political coup.

1985, after the death erf Presi- 
dent-elect Tancredo Neves. 
President Sarney had been 
moving by diffident halfiseps 
all year. • 

Inflation raced towards 500 
per cent and labour grew 
increasingly restive over erod- 
ing wages. A massive Cabinet 
change had alienated key poli- 
ticians in the alliance of 
governing parties. 


As his popularity damped, 
the cry for immediate presir 


dential elections grew shrill 
The man who came to power 
by accident seemed to be 
ruling the same way. 

“Sarney was backed into a 
corner," said Senbor Cdso 
Martone, a University, of SSo 
Paulo economist. “Then, in 
one move, he turned the 
tables.” 

In March Brazilians took to 
the streets, not in protest but.

Scarcely-veiled attacks on 
the leadership of Mr Babrak 
Karmal, the titular President 
of Afghanistan, by Dr Najib 
UUah, the man who succeeded 
him as general secretary of the 
ruling party, have been report- 
ed by Western diplomats here. 

while Dr Najib, appointed 
earlier this month as party 
chief by a “unanimous” vote 
of the party plenum, has been 
establishing himself in the 
public eye with a series of 
speeches around the capital 
he has also publicly attacked 
the running of the party. 

According to the diplomats,, 
he addressed a meeting of tire 
Kabul city plenum of the 
People's Democratic Party of 
Afghanistan last week an d 
attacked the party for its lack 
of activity, which be deemed 
“the main defect of our 
work” He also spoke against a 
failure to implement and con- 
trol party activities. 

Dr Najib expressed concern 


that only 17 per cent of the ■ 
students in -higher -education 
were ihembere of the youth 
wing of tire party. His figures' 
showed that only 3 per cent of 
medical students and 6 per 
cent of student-teachers were 
members. 

. The diplomats reported that 
the meeting of the plenum 
which promoted Dr Najib and 
sidelined Mr. Karmal was - 
preceded by a stormy session 
of tire Politburo, and that an 
even stormier dash had taken - 
place in the streets of the 
suburb of KaneSeh four days 
earlier. 

. An Afghan source told dip- 
lomats that four people ' died 
there. in an open brawl be- 
tween Khakji and Parchami 
factions of the party. 

The new .general secretary 
has also emphasized the need 
for bolstering the strength of 
the Afghan Army and for 
dosing the border with 
Pakistan.

SPECTRUM 


The battered Bard 


Concern over the 


Ros OrMswsMr 


absence of American 


tourists reached the 


Cabinet this week. 


William Greaves 


sees how shadows 


of terrorism have 


affected Stratford 


One day last week the men who have 
turned Stratford-upon-Avon into a 
tourist phenomenon sat down for a 
crisis meeting. Figures for the Great 
American Defection were coming in — 
and they were even grimmer than 
expected. Four coach firms reported 
.cancellations ranging from 25 per cent 
to 75 per cent of all long-haul 
bookings. At the town's main attrac- 
tions. admissions were up to 35 per 
cent down on last year’s figures. 

The response was as immediate as it 
was typical. Prices at the main 
Shakespearean attractions, the hotels, 
the shops and the local tour companies 
would be slashed by 10 per cent 
throughout the season. There was, 
however, one vital provisa 

“To collect their special vouchers 
for the offer, visitors must first book 
into one of the town's hotels". Roger 
Thompson, chairman of the Shake- 
speare Country Association of Tourist 
Attractions, says. "You see the trick? 
Ifa visitor can be persuaded to stay 24 
hours in Stratfotd instead of getting off 



Empty seats: a change from last year, when 1-5 million people went in search of culture in Disneyland-opon-Avon 


Adventures of a 




a coach, having a quick look round 
off a; 


and beetling off again, everyone in the 
town gets the benefit". 

This is just the latest example of the 
ferocious marketing which has trans- 
lated a literary shrine into an annual 
£50 million one-man industry. Today 
Stratford-upon-Avon is a microcosm 
of everything that is good and bad in 
British tourism — a national business 
which directly employs 1.300.000 
people and is currently praying for 
deliverance from the shadow of 
Gadaffi reprisals. 


‘You could say we are 
glad he was born here 9 


Twenty years ago, there were 300 
three-star and above hotel bedrooms 
in Stratford. Now there are 900-Then 
there were 50.000 foreign tourists 
visiting the town in a year. Today 
there are —or, at least, there were — 1 .5 
million. Then there was one Royal 
Shakespeare Theatre and five Shake- 
spearean properties, such as his birth- 
place and Anne Hathaway’s cottage: 
Today there are three more RSC 
theatres— the Other Place, the Gallery 
and the Swan, which opened its doors 
at the end of last month — the World 
of Shakespeare centre, a motor muse- 
um, an arms and armour museum, a 
brass rubbing centre and a butterfly 
farm. Depending on your point of 
view, the place is either an Elizabethan 


The Birthplace for £19.95. the Shake- 
speare Hostelrie, the Old Tudor House 
Restaurant, the Garrick Inn. the 
Hathaway tea-rooms and Marlowe's 
Restaurant to the information centre. 

Offsetting this, the various Shake- 
spearean properties have been con- 
served tastefully, with minute 
attention to historic integrity. Marks 
and Spencer's hides behind a genuine 
Georgian fecade. McDonald's gladly 
abandoned its corporate colours — the 
only time it has done so in Britain. 
Ana. if a local planning requirement 
that no building shall be higher than 
the Royal Shakespeare Theatre might 
seem bizarre, it shows Stratford knows 
on which side its bread is buttered. 

True or false, genuine or hopeful, 
unique or commonplace, the selling of 
the greatest literary Englishman is 
conducted with unapologetic zeal “I 
think that you could say that we are 
pretty glad Shakespeare was horn 
here", Alan Courtney, secretary of the 
Stratford Marketing Group, admits. 

“Tourism is a highly professional 
and specialized business", Roger 
Thompson says. He came.to Stratford 
to escape the London rat race 12 years 
ago, set up what is now the town's 
leading firm of tour operators and the 


Shakespeare Country Association of 
Tourist Attractions (SCAT A); invest- 
ed £50,000 of his own money in the 
Shakespeare Connection and became 
the architect of the region’s rise to 
boom-town status. 

None of that rise happened by 
accident. Every year SCATA prints 
and distributes half a million leaflets. 
At four-monthly intervals they are 
delivered to 200 tourist information 
centres throughout Britain. AU British 
Rail's London travel centres are 
inundated with them. And if any 
casual visitors get as far as the outer 
limits of Shakespeare Country they 
run into mountains of literature

efficiency of his tactics. 

“ Ansleterre : passes voire week-end 
chez Shakespeare ", proclaims a Figaro 
headline. “Recordando a Shakespeare 
con Macbeth y Hamlet en Ingiaterra ", 
says Mexico's El Universe!. Other 
articles from Brazil. Japan, the Middle 
East South Africa, Spain and, of 
course, the US, shout the -same 
message. “There’s £15 million Worth 


of free publicity in that one folder 
alone”, Thompson says.

Thompson says sadly, “so we concen-

freshness, incident and 
humour. Apart from 
the vivid descriptions of what 
it felt tike to be young in the 
1950s, the heart of Albany 
Park is about a love-affair. 
Both Beryl and Patrice, arriv- 
ing in the Spanish town of 
Gerona, fell in love with the 
same man. Jos& Tames. 
Patrice got him. 

“Gerona is a place of 
dreams, but people promote 
them at tremendous cost", 
says Patrice sadly. “Our 
meeting had a feeling of 
inevitability. I don’t think I 
could have escaped it It was 
a great dollop of magic, but 
we were happy at a great 
.cost.” 

..During the year she spent 
in Gerona, however, Patrice 
made a" start to • her first 
career iha avant-garde writer t 
Jean Cocteau was indulging 
' in one of his forays into mm- 
making in the area, and 
offered her a part 

Then she returned to Lon- 
don, and studied at the Royal 
Academy of Dramatic Art 
Between lessons and the oc- 
casional stage appearance, 
she was a showgirl in Beak 
Street, Soho sleeping on a pile 
of rags belonging to a design- 
er who dressed Diana Dors 
and Rachel Roberts, and 
paying for the “bed” in the 
mornings by modelling for 
the designer. 

Later, she lived m a house 
in Gunter Grove, Chelsea, 
which was famous for its 
pretty girls who attracted 
many artists of the day — 
John Hoyiand, Lucian Freud, 


French pub or the Greek cafe 
in Old Compton Street 


There was a lot of banging 
around and giggling and pick- 
ing people up and being 
chatted up". 


he says: “The Sixties 
killed, off all: that, inno- 
cence they didn't 
promore good feelings, they 
were blowzy- and loud.- And 
the Seventies were a product 
of the Sixties. 1 think the 
reason everyone is rediscov- 
ering the 1950s is that kids 
now are into the same things 
we were". 

“They aren’t ashamed to 
say they don’t want sex, or do 
want to be a Catholic. They 
want to do what’s right rather 
than go with the group". 

Doing what probably 
seemed right at. the time, 
Patrice returned to Gerona, 
and Jose. She was no longer a 
child, and the two were 
engaged before she discov- 
ered he was having an affair. 
She went back to London. 

There she met actor Mi-

This will be a change, as in 
the past when Mexico has 
hosted mayor sporting events 
tike the Olympic Games in 
1968 and the World Cup in 
1970, the effect of altitude 
rather than the weather has 
been a major preoccupation. 

The reason for the shift in 
emphasis is that Mexico City, 
at 7,500 ft, has attractive 
summer weather on a par with 
southern England whereas 
Monterrey, nearly 6,000ft low- 
er. is much hotter and more 
humid. These sticky condi-

as high as 100°F or as low as 
80°F. But, ft is not the 
temperature alone that mat- 
ters, the real {tiller is likely to 
be the humidity. 

, The problem for those of us 
watching in bright and breezy 
England is 'to have a concept 
of. wfaat the conditions are 
really like: To anyone wild has 
nor been to the tropics, the 
combination of heat and hu- 
midity cannot easily be imag- 
ined. It is no good equating a 
heatwave in Britain when the 
temperature reaches (he upper 
eighties with what is common- 
place in Monterrey, as Britain 
never, have, high -relative hu- 
midity during such weather. 

_ The impact of the combina- 
tion of beat and humidity on 
human comfort has been stud- 
ied widely. In the United 
States these observations have 
been encapsulated in a dis- 
comfort index. This provides 
a scale of human discomfort, 
when taking no exercise. In 
which about 10 per cent of the 
populace is imeomfbrtabie be- 
fore the index passes 70, more 
than half after ft passes 75 and 
almost all at 80 or above 
The discomfort level of 75 is 
rarely, ■ if ever, reached in 
London even in the most 
extreme, heatwaves. By con- 


tra portant and 

the body has to rely on 
evaporation to prevent 
overheating. 

Even under normal British 
conditions footballers, or any- 
one else taking vigorous exer- 
cisewill lose some 75 per cent 
of the energy they generate by 
evaporation. At high tempera- 
tures this process becomes 
even more dominant, but with 
high humidity it cannot work 
efficiently. Failure to dissipate 
the heat generate by exercise 
can have dire consequences. 

The initial reaction to heat 
is dilation of the. blood vessels 
in -the skin, dilution of the 
blood,- decreased muscle tone, 
lassitude and sweating. But 


once the perspiration starts 
dripping off the process be- 


trast the figure of 80, which is 
itS5°F 


reached atSS^F with a, relative 
humidity of 65 per cent. Is 


comes ineffecient and does 
not produce the required cool- 
ing effect.. The consequent 
dehydration, overheating and 
kiss of salt soon leads to the 
wdQ known effects of heat 
exhaustion — dizziness; nau-. 
sea, feinting and cramps. 

Given enough time. . the 
body can become 'partly accli- 
matizes to heat aim humidity. 
In the shorter term,- the effects 
can be reduced by drinking 
lots of fluids increasing salt 
consumption and avoiding 
aJcohoL But, even sawhrait 
comes to playings football- in

will be essential.

muses. “When he looks at

in his eyes, a caressing look. 

It's quite rare — Roy Schekkr

She now spends half the

grinning wickedly. ' 


She is still friends with

They do things with foreign 
women they wouldn't dream

says as a warning to those

of working and living which 
combines strict classical dance 
with the pounding music and 
outrageous clothes of contem- 
porary youth culture. 

Clark is one of the more 
colourful products of the Roy- 
al Ballet School He joined 
when he was 13, after years of 
dance classes in Aberdeen. 
Now, at 23, he has achieved 
considerable popularity or no- 
toriety (depending oq . your 
point of viewX reaching audi- 
ences hitherto untouched by 
ballet Will his example entice 
more into the profession? 

If so, they and their parents 
should know that it is impor- 
tant to start by joining a local 
class preferably no later than 
their tenth birthday. That 
should eventually show 
whether it is worth audition- 
ing for one of the vocational 
schools. Youngest age for 
acceptance into these is 10 or 
1 1. and competition is stiff. 

Fees vary: the Bush Davies 
School in East Grjnstead, for 
example, charges £1,490 a 
term for boarders under 16, 
£1,535 for those over. A 
number of pupils are eligible 
for grants from local authori- 
ties to cover at least some of 
the costs. The Royal Ballet 
School is exceptional because 
the Department of Education 
and Science pays a proportion 
of the fees, according to 
parental income. But foreign 
students, or those who enteral 
the Upper School level (16 
and older), have to rely on 


their own resources_or grants. 

The RBS supplies the Royal 
Ballet with—' virtually , all its 
dancers and is the hardest to 
getirno JEhe Lo^erJ^hqol^at 

white Lodge in Richmond 
Paris,; has on average 400 
applicants every year and an 
intake of about 50, a third of 
them boys. Only a few of those 
accepted survive all the way to 
the final year of the Upper 
School in Baron's Court, west 
London, and even fewer gain 
entry into the Royal Ballet 
Other schools do not oper- 
ate the same rigorous elimina- 
tion process, but the rhan res 
of their graduates getting into 
a classical company are slim- 
mer. They consequently offer 
a broader training than the 
RBS, with courses in tap 
dance, for instance, and dra- 
ma — useful for finding work 
in variety shows or musicals. 
Most schools also set great 
store by good academic stan- 
dards, as something for stu- 
dents to fall back on, although 
even budding megastars 
should not throw away their 
books. “You have to be 
cultured to make it as a top 
dancerP, says Merle. Park, the 
Royal Ballet's senior ballerina 
and director of the school 

I n order to fit in all the 
culture, students have a 
longer day than at normal 
schools and may have to 
give up part of Saturday.' Are 
they under excessive pressure 
to succeed? 1 :Alfreria 
Thorogood, a; former. .Royal 
Ballet dancer who is- .now 
deputy principal of.the Bush 
Davies School; has not come 
across a nervous breakdown 
yet “Sometimes children do 
get overwrought when they 
have academic and dance 
exams at the same time. But 
we've always been able to sort 
the problems out", she says. 


Catherine Becque, a ; mem- 
ber of Ballet Rambert, enjoyed 
her time at the London brapch 
of (he Arts' Educational 
School. “You have to be syxp, 
though, that you really want to 
do it You have. to-understand 
that you heed to work lord 
and that you still might not gel 
a job at the end". 

A s a Royal BaUet prin- 
cipal, Ashley Page is 
at the peak of his 
profession, but he 
has painful memories of 
White Lodge. “Some children 
were there because their par- 
ents wanted it. I was like that 
1 started in a class of 12-yeai- 
olds and felt I didn't belong, ft 
was only when ( got to the 
Upper. School that I stopped 
fe&ing depressed and started 
concentrating bn - my work. 
I'm dad now that l stuck it 
but! I'm the only one of those 
White Lodge 1 2 r year-olds to 
have got into the company". 

Catherine Becque and Ash- 
ley Page belong to the' elite, 
enjoying the regular salaries 
and companionship of compa- 
ny life. They can hope to 
survive on stage until their 
late-30s - or longer, with luck. 
For those on the outside, in 
commercial theatre for exam- 
ple, the world is a colder, 
lonelier, more precarious 
place. Graham Fletcher, who 
was also a Royal Ballet princi- 
pal and is-' now the lead in 
Cats, is- able to contrast the 
two existences: “In the Royal 
Ballet a ehoreopapher might 
decide not to -use ■ you; but 
you’re - still -employed You 
just have/a cry- add- -carry bn 
earning money every week. In 
commercial theatre you have 
to audition at 10.30' in the 
morning and show the chore- 
ographer what you're capable 
of. If you don’t then you don’t 
work, you don’t' earn. There is 
no security at alT.

Lucy Fletcher 


Lacy Fletcher was fed on milk 
and bailee from the moment 
she was born. Her (lather is 
Graham Fletcher, her mother 
used to dance -with the Royal 
Ballet as Snzanna Raymond 
and now runs a ballet school in 
Teddiogton, London. Only 
Lucy's 10-year-oW brother 
Toby seems to have escaped 
the bog {“dancers — ugh!"), 
although his mother says that 
he loves watching his father on 

stage — and Lncy too, when 
she performs in the school 
theatre. 

Lucy joined the Bosh Davies 
School two years ago, when 
she was 1 1, at the same time as 
the school’s move to coeduca- 
tion. Like many of her fellow 
pupils (35 boys, 314 girls), she 
gets a grant — in bar case, a 
borough, council grant that 
pays all her tuition fees, but 
not her board at school. Her 
uniform and dance kits are 
another parental extra (as at 
other , schools) and - because 
Lacy is still growing, as well as 
braining in a wide range of 
dance styles which each re- 
quire a different pair of shoes 
— the cost mounts up. 

The curriculum at Bash 
Davies is intensive, with class- 
es in music and drama, besides 
normal school subjects. The 
aim is to' have pupils leaving 
with seven O levels, although 
some go on to do two A levels. 
Lacy's classes begin at 
8L45 am and grid af 4 30 pih or 
later, after which she does -her 
homework.. Bnt as everything 
is under the same roof she does 
not have, to waste time or 
energy travelling. “AD Lucy 
has to do at the end of the day 
is jump into her pyjamas’*, her 
mother says. 

Both mother and danghter 
are thrilled with the school 
although they miss each other 
terribly. Sazama Fletcher, 
who is divorced from Lucy's 
father, _ confesses to feettng 
very emotional when they have 
tosay goodbye:. “Lneyis much ; 
more sensible than I am". But 
pnpils are allowed to spend 
some weekends at home, . 

Lacy wants to foDow inker ' 
father’s footsteps: “1 hope to 
get Into a company and then 
work In some musicals." 





Breeding will out: Lacy Fletcher’s mother, Snzanna, was once with the Royal Ballet 


Her mother is mostly on her 
side. “It’s a wonderful life", 
she says, “bat yon have to 
wijoy tiie. work". Her father 
sounds more doubtful: "I’m all 
for it, if Lucy's going to make 
it to tiie top. Otherwise it's 
frightening when you see what, 
happens to other' kids who' 
have to find work in regional 
tinsel-shows and can’t rely on 
a permanent income". 


Have leaps, will travel Phffip Mosley has danced as an exchange student in Peking 


Philip Mosley 


Philip Mosley, one of a family 
of seven children living near 
Barnsley, Yorkshire, started 
dance classes at the age of 
three, because his elder sister 
went. Now 18, Philip has 
reached bis final year at the 
Royal Ballet School There are 
three boy’s left in his class (out 
of the nine who originally 
entered the Upper School) and 
he is one of two “graduate” 
boys, with a good chance of 
getting into the company. He 
has performed at Covent Gar- 
den and Sadler’s Wells with 
the school and appeared on 
television. Last year he went to 
Peking on exchange. 

His parents. Albert^ and 
Margaret, are behind him in 
his choice of career. “We’ve 


been down to London every 
time Philip has performed on 
stage”, his totber says. “I 
certainly know mere ; about 
ballet now than I -did": 

Albert Mosley works as a 
plumbing supervisor. He 
doesn't pay Philip's tmtion 
fees, but he does have to help 
with firing expenses. The 
Upper School is Don-residen- 
tial so that since transferring 
there at 16 Philip has lived in 
lodgings. He takes some of his 
washing to the launderette and 
the rest to his mother when he 
goes home for weekends. He 
cooks bis own meals to keep 
costs down: “ Yon have to eat 
properly". Merle Park says 
that dancers need to be eight 
or 10 pounds below average, “ 
but anyone who gets too thin is 
sent borne to put ou weight". 

Philip has had to cope with 


injury, -a special hazard for 
growing boys whose muscles 
.are not yet strong em>ogiu-“It’s 
depressing: you have to watch 
everyone . ..else jumping 
around." He enjoys . j . the 
school's . atmosphere: cosmo- 
politan (his best friend is 
Italian) and yet .dose-knit - 
“there’s very little bitchiness". 
Some of the studios are also 
used by the company, so 
students mb shoulders with 
the dancers they admire. 

Philip has three CSEs and 
will not be taking any more 
academic exams, although 
some people do A levels. His 
day begins with a warm-up 
session before dass at 9am. 
Then might come a class in pas 
de dto»'(pmineifo^-or reper- 
toire (learning roles). On Sat- 

' urdays there ? another class 
in the' morning, with afternoon. 



Vanessa Launchbmry and her parents, Colin and Irene 


Vanessa Launchbury 


Pale, and delicate, Vanessa 
Launchbury is a striking 10- 
year-old, the proud owner of 
wavy, ash-blond hair which is 
long enough, to . sit on. Al- 
though she has only been at 
the Arts Educational School in 
Tring, Hertfordshire, for one 
year, she is already a seasoned 
performer who has appeared 
in Monte Carlo, London and 
the provinces in the Festival 
Ballet's productions of Les 
Sylphides and Coppelia. 

The weeks during the Lon- 
don season were particularly 
hectic, consumed by rehears- 
als and performances. 
Vanessa and her mother did 
not get to bed until well after 
midnight, because they were 
commuting daily from their 
home hi Bedfordshire (nor- 
mally, Vanessa boards at 
school). Being a part-time 
teacher, Irene Launchbury 
had to find someone to replace 
her at work. Did Vanessa 
suffer from stage fright? “I 
think she did, although it 
looked more like excitement 1 
definitely did". 

Vanessa started ballet les- 
sons by chance, when she was 
seven, along with her two 
sisters, Tracy (7) and Lonise 
(12). No me in the family had 
seen a ballet performance, but 
they have since become fervent 
converts. Vanessa’s father, 
Colin, is a chief technician 


with the RAF, which means 
that the family is constantly 
moving house. To safeguard 
their children's education the 
original plan, had been to send 
all three to the same board ing- 
scbooL Bat Vanessa kept np 
.her ballet lessons and. woo 
several medals. “So we audi- 
tioned her here". Cotin 
Launchbury says, “because we 
felt we should give her the 
chance". 

Vanessa was one of the 350 
or so children of all ages who 
compete for the 60 places 
available each year. The 
school has 316 pup 3s (all 
girls), roughly a quarter of 
whom manage to obtain local 
authority grants. Vanessa's 
father, however, gets an allow- 
ance from the RAF to pay 
school fees, although he finds 
he has to top op the amount 
himself. 

The building where Vanessa 
lives and learns is a former 
Rothschild family mansion, 
with beautiful oak-panelling, 
marble floors and parkland. 
Her mornings are devoted to 
dance, the afternoons to aca- 
demic subjects. At firsl she 
missed her parents a lot but 
now the number of letters 
home has tailed off, so things 
are presumably better. Her 
ambition is simple: “I want to 
be a ballet star", although she 
does not , though, seem to have 
any illusions about it being an 
easy fife. 


Putting 
a price 
on life 


TALKBACK 


From David Holbrook, 
Denmore Lodge. Brunswick 
Gardens. Cambridge. 

I found the Wand chatty tone 
of SaJly Broropion's article on 
-abortion (Wednesday- -Page, 
May 14), deeply -disturbing, 
displaying as it did a profound 
moral insensitivity. 

However one looks ar it, pn 
abortion involves the destruc- 
tion of a defenceless living 
human being. Was it the 
intention when abortion was 
legalized, that it should be 
used for mere convenience, 
when a life seemed likely to 
interfere with a woman's con- 
venience and career? Or to be 
resorted to when, say, a rela- 
tionship cooled off? 

The implication must surely 
extend to other circumstances 
in life, in which people might 
■be seen to stand in one's way — 
a child ohe . dislikes, ' or a 
partner who $u fferslrom some 
demanding disease, ' say, or 
senile parents. 

And then there is' counsel- 
ling. Suppose the feelings of 
nihilism a woman feels after 
an abortion arise from her 
conscience? Must not counsel- 
ling be completely authentic if 
it is to be justified? If, say, a 
woman has destroyed a life in 
order to live in terms of pure 
egoism, believing that every- 
thing that stands in the way of 
her happiness should be elimi- 
nated, then shall counselling 
falsify and reconcile her to her 
deed? 

Suppose, where senile par- 
ents are concerned, euthanasia 
is the next solution to appear 
. on the scene, shall, we nave 
“counselling" to allay natural 
.doubts abopt that?- • 

Something is surely serious- 
Jy missing from the debate^ 
some sense of responsibility to 
life — which is in its absence 
deeply undermining the moral 
life of society. May I add that 1 
am not a Christian. 

Wake up 

From Sarah Rae, Bark . 
Village East, London ... 1 . 

Feter Brown describes firs 
..chaotic attempts to get. two 
children and himself up in' the 
morning in Firer Person tMay 
14) and concludes by asking 
“where did I go wrong?” when 
he fails to get his six-vear-ofti 
to school on time. 

As a full-time hospital doc- 
tor with two daughters under 
18 months (not twins!) rJ 
couldn't even contemplate 
working without the help of a 
nanny, so I would like to make 
one simple suggestion to him. 

' He should start to manage 
his nanny more effectively; -if 
she got the baby up m the 
morning he would have a bit 
more time with his six-year- 
old who would probably then 
slop exhibiting such attention 
seeking behaviour as thump- 
ing him in the groin and 
saying he is too ill to go to 
school! With a little encour- 
agement she may even iron his 
shins for him! 

There must be nothing 
more irksome for a good- 
nanny than children made' 
irritable by harassed parents^ I 
rather sympathize with UlS-„ 
teachers who gave Mr Brown’ 
looks of contempt when he. 
finally delivered four children! 
including his own to school 
late.

The way, the truth mid the light 

Has Habitat denied its moral creed, 


and finally been guilty of bad taste? 


Part of the Habitat mystique is 
that its shops are not there to 
sell. At leasi if they are, why 
do its young, grey-suited and 
skirled assistants loaf about 
sneering at anything resem- 
bling a customer? No, 
Habitat’s (unction has always 
been to improve us — we Shop 
there for our own-good. . 

Like so much else boro of 
ihe Sixties it began as a sort of 
crusade: Terence -Conran 
wished to rid the world of bad 
design, to simplify, brighter 
and unclutter our lives. This 

was not simply a matter of 
taste, it was a matter of ethical 
urgency. Bad design _ — a 
particularly English crime - 
was evil and must be 
eradicated. 

It is possible to see this as 
either wonderful futile — 


or profoundly daft It repre- 
sents a confusion of marketing 
aims, aesthetics and morals 
which in the long run, the 
cynic might say, is just anoth- 
er way of flogging furniture. It 
was Only a matter of time 
before Habitat, the . Sixties 
radical, became* . .the 
Waring & Gillow of. the. next 
decade. .' 

Well we are. now well info 
the Eighties, and the moral 
armour of Habitat seems in- 
tact 

Yet, unnoticed, a crack has 
appeared in the moral edifice. 
A product has slipped into the 
Habitat catalogue which 
shows either that even Sir 
Terence occasionally nods or 
that the purity of the Habitat 
ideology has been abandoned. 
This product is catalogue

Habftat’s tunp:fm> or kitsch? 
number . N350303, . it .costs . 
£49.95 and it is known as the 
Hollywood FIoorfighL 
At the heart of the Habitat 
creed is the- notion of 
“honesty" in design. A reac- 
tion to the heavy, decorated 
furniture of the pasi this 
means that products should be 
efficient realizations of their 
function. Habitat stood for a 
sort of cleanliness of appear- 
ance, a certain logic. So, 
although decoration would be 
admitted, it would always 
tend towards the design ideal 
of simplicity and clarity. And 
| certainly . there _ could_be_ no . 
question of disguising a prod- 
uct -as soTTrething elser -‘thar 
would smack: too much of 
pretending" the stereo was a 
Chippendale sideboard. 

Until N350303, that is, -For 
this is a Habitat design that 
pretends to be a film light- It 
has adjustable flaps and a 
black' cylinder decorated with 
little perforated blips. 

It «, says Habilal a “fun" 


; /s r 


light and there were reserva- 
tions about slocking it primar- 
ily because £49.95 seemed 
rather a lot for such a jeu 
d esprit. Designed by Max 
Meier, from Switzerland, 
around 9,000 have been sold 
in the UK, possibly 25.000 
worldwide. 

There are other Habitat 
lines which look like things — 
a toast-rack that looks like a 
Hovis loaf or a wall-box that 
looks like a' heart — but these 
remain within the realm of 
acceptable decoration and wit. 
Bread doesn’t work as a toasi- 
rack and heart? cannot func- 
tion as wall-boxes, so these are 
references - not disguises. 
Meier's little conceit really 
does pretend to be a film light. 

As such it has entered the 
divine realm of kitsch. Noth- 
ing wrong with thai of course. 
Many would defend it by 
saying that Habitat is simply 
following the move towards 
the post-modern. This, in 
essence, means the abandon- 
ment of pure modernist design 
ideals in favour of a more 
varied, celebratory and repre- 
sentational approach. 

. It is. nevertheless, a chink, a 
little, unconscious homage to 
people’s frequent need to slip 
Into the other taste, the kind 
that once would have earned 
the epithet “bad". And h may 
mark the beginning of 
Habitat’s final metamorpho- 
sis from a way of life into just 
another furniture store.

THE TIMES 
DIARY 


Wiring up 
the Rock 


The spectre of Colonel Gadaffi 
seems to have spurred the Min- 
istry of Defence into action on 
Gibraltar, which was cited by the 
Libyan leader as a possible target 
because of Britain's complicity in 
the US air strike. Gib's notori- 
ously short airport runway has 
now been equipped with' mobile 
arrester wires of tbe type usually 
deployed on aircraft carriers to aid 
the landing of high-speed jets. 
Military experts say this equip- 
ment would provide additional 
.safety for combat aircraft landing 
there, especially Phantoms. At the 
same time security controls on 
civilian passengers, including 
body searches, have been stepped 
up. The MoD, never the most 
forthcoming of government dep- 
artments. refuses to discuss the 
thinking behind tbe moves. 


Pace campaign 


Monsignor Bruce Kent is about to 
do a Botham. At the end of June 
the vice-president of CND begins 
a sponsored trek — 450 miles 
from the Polaris submarine base 
at Faslane in Scotland to the Royal 
Ordnance factory at Burghfield in 
Berkshire — to raise money for 
CND and War on Want. He hopes 
to complete the course on August 
6 — Hiroshima Day — but those 
who have spotted him jogging in 
Hyde Plark say he will have to put 
in a lot more practice if he is to 
bowl along at the Botham rate. 


Whoever follows Sir Keith Joseph 
into the hot seat of Education 
Secretary will receive one big 
consolation prize: he will find it 
relatively easy to wring more 
money out of the Chancellor. 

Since Sir Keith became Sec- 
retary of Slate almost five years 
ago, overall spending on the 
education service has been cut in 
real terms by ) per cent a year. 
Pupil numbers have indeed alien, 
as the government has tried to 
remind us, but education's share 
of all public spending has shrunk 
by more than one tenth and this 
has taken its toll on the schools. 

As Her Majesty's Inspectors 
have pointed out in successive 
annual expenditure surveys (the 
latest is published today) this is 
having a serious effect on what 
schools can provide for children, 
particularly in some shire counties 
where careful husbandry of re- 
sources has meant that education 
has been cut to the bone. 

A new Education Secretary is 
therefore more likely to get at least 
some of tbe money bis department 
wants. Sir Keith has certainly 
shown the way in the last few days 
by winning Cabinet agreement for 
no further reduction in the 
universities' budgets after the 
current round of cuts, to be 
announced today. 

None of this, however, means 
that a new Education Secretary 
will not, or should not, continue 
with Sir Keith's campaign to 
cajole the local education authori- 
ties into better management of 
their schools. Sir Keith is fond of 
pointing out Lhat huge sums are 
wasted by councils' inability to 
merge schools in line with falling 
pupil numbers. 

His successor will have to 
maintain the momentum set by 
Sir Keith on all fronts, and this 


Lacy Hodges on the essential quality

Schools: how 
the new boy 
can do better 


will 


not be easy. He must also 
consolidate die big reforms set in 
train: the replacement of O levels 
and CSE with the new GG5E 
examination; the attempt to de- 
fine what is taught in schools a 
tightening of teacher training; 
appraisal of teachers' perfor- 
mance, and greater powers for 
parents through school governing 
bodies. 

Once he has mastered his brief, 
be will certainly want to produce 
some policies of his own. He will 
not lack advice from those within 
the Tory party and outside. Be- 
cause education has now become a 
top priority for Mrs Thatcher, he 
will be under enormous pressure 
to come up with some ideas for 
raising standards in schools. 

This is at the heart of the current 
debate; how to raise the attain- 
ments of the average and below 
average children which compare 
unfavourably, for example, with 
those in West Germany; how to 
motivate children to want to leant 
and give them something to show 
for their efforts; and how to give 
them an education and training 


which equips them for adult life. 
He will have to reconcile the 
apparently conflicting interests of 
a government, which wants an 
education system ' to serve . the 
country well and parents, sus- 
picious of too many compulsory 
lessons on technology. . 

This is enough to keep a new 
Education Secretary going for 
years. Unfortunately the new man 
will have little more than 18 
months before a general election 
puts his policies to tbe test That 
makes it virtually impossible for 
him to adopt some of the more 
fancifel ideas of those on the right 
of tbe party, such as education 
vouchers, which would throw the 
whole system into turmoil as 
schools were run down or built up 
in response to parental choice. 

He could press ahead with Sir 
Keith's idea for direct grant 
primary schools or with a network 
of “crown" schools forchfldren in 
mban areas, which would he 
direct grant , schools in another 
guise: But these will take time to 
realize and could provoke a 
political outcry of the kind the 


government mifefat prefer to avoid. 

His most likely . options are 
more modest; lo go for, aa cxxei^ 
sion of technical and vo^tional 
education in schools, junofia by f 
the Manpower Services Commis- 
sion, which means further oenteaL 
control of education; and an 
extension of the use- of specific 
grants which would enable him to 
target money on pet prefects. 
Again this would increase control 
by the centre. . ■ ’• 

The Department of Education 
and Science is known to want to 
fund polytechnics fey means of 
specific giants, ins t ead of funnel- 
ling money through the local 
authorities, as at present. This is 
one idea Sir Keith's successor 
could pick up. 

. He might also, take a tougher 
' line with die universities* which, 
despite their protests over govern- 
ment cuts, are remarkably com- 
placent about -what they do and 
the way they do it As- Getnge 
Walden, the minister, in cbaigfcof 
higher educati on, has commented, 
the typical reaction of a university 
vice-chancellor is to say: ’^There's 
nothing wrong and we are putting 
it right." Universities could use- 
fully develop systems for apprais- 
ing the performance of lecturers 
and salary structures. 

Above all, the new Education 
Secretary will have to have sen- 
sitive political antennae. Sir 
Keith's great fading has been his 
failure to operate as a politician. 
His successor will need all the 
qualities of character and persua- 
sion he can muster to convince the 
- teachers that he cares about them 
.but flunks they could improve; 
and the Conservative Party and 
parents that he understands their 
concerns. .

Cost plus 

Lord Hailsham is costing the 
country even more money than 
my colleague Alastair Brett (see 
top right comer) is aware of. A few 
days ago, delivering the judgment 
of the House of Lords in a case in 
which their Lordships reversed 
the effect of a judicial pronounce- 
[ mem last year, he turned over two 
pages at once and omitted the 
question of who pays the costs. 
The case has been relisted for 
tomorrow so that a solemn 
pronouncement on this one point 
can be made. And who will foot 
the bill for this? I'm prepared to 
bet it won’t be Lord H. 

Block note 

A former Lord Chancellor, Lord 
3wyn-Jones, has meanwhile been 
Teminding peers that beheading 
emains the official penalty for 
murdering the incumbent. He 
supplied this nugget of informa- 
ion during discussion of an 
intendment to the Armed Faroes 
Jill — subsequently rejected — 
hat the death penalty for service- 
men be abolished. Lord Elwyn- 
lones said that during his tenure 
ie had drawn little comfort from 
he existence of the penalty. What 
.ord Hailsham thinks 1 know not. 


Last week, an actor — an actor — 
was invited, on a public occasion, 
to express an opinion on a matter 
which involved political con- 
troversy, and refused to do so. 
Later, asked to explain his refusal, 
be said these memorable words: “1 
have strong political views, but 1 
like to keep them to myself." 

It can do no harm, and may do 
some good, to name this hero: be 
is Mr Paul Eddington, whose 
lame, as one of the two stare of 
Yes. Minister, should not be 
allowed to obscure the fact that be 
is a very good actor. It is not, 
however, for his talent that 1 come 
to praise him today, but for his 
reticence. 

I do not know when, or how, the 
custom of regarding actors and 
actresses as political sages began; I 
suspect that it coincided with the 
rise of television to its now 
dominant place in entertainment 
Before that, most stage actors were 
known to a minority only, and 
film ones were remote beings from 
another planet; when actors began 
to be found nightly in the homes 
of many millions, the line between 
illusion and reality began to blur, 
and for many it has now entirely 
vanished. 

That does not in itself explain 
why, even if the public have come 
to believe that actors and actresses 
are real people, their political 
opinions should be eagerly can- 
vassed and readily disseminated, 
let alone heeded. Mind, I have no 
objection to their views on politi- 
cal matters being expressed, an 
actor has as much right to sound 
off on site-value taxation, bond- 
washing, regional policy and 
South Atlantic fishing rights as 
anyone else. But no one is obliged 
to listen; how does it come about 
that so many apparently do? 

Possibly it is an illusion; like the 
players themselves, and for all the 
attention paid by the journalists 
and broadcasters, nobody outside 
tbe ranks of Vanessa's loonies 
and similar groups of groupies (see 
Macbeth's speech beginning “Ca- 
morra, and camorra, and cam- 
orra”) takes the slightest notice. 1 
would like to think so, but 
presumably the attention paid to 
the mummers' opinions by tbe 
media m ust to some extent at least 
reflect the interests of the readers 
and viewers and listeners. 

And it is worse than that; 
political parties, not all of them 
possessed by the belief that the 
world is flat and the moon made 
of green cheese, have taken to 
engaging performers for their 
party political broadcasts and 
election meetings, and these are 
expected not to sing or dance or 
juggle, or to speak the speech 
trippingly upon the tongue, but to 
express their political opinions 
and urge their audiences to adopt 
the same. Even the Tories, who 
would normally be expected to 
avoid such factitious shenanigans, 
once put up Jimmy Edwards for 
Parliament, as though there

candlestick-maker. If he were not 
a familiar figure on the screen he 
would never have received the 
invitation, as is dearly dem- 
onstrated by the fact that no such 
invitation goes to the butcher, the 
baker or tne candlestick-maker. 

But that brings me.back to tbe 
first and most interesting ques- 
tion; how did we get to the point 
where the political opinions of 
actors and actresses began to be 
thought of intrinsic interert? Prac- 
tically all their expressions of 
political opinion, after ail, whether 
on .Television. talk-shows . or in 
newspaper interviews, are ofa 
stunning banality, couched in 
language so stale,' weary and 
unprofitable that I would almost 
rather at through a new play by 
David Hare. Yet they are deferred 
to, praised for the oogency and 
incisiveness of their views, and 
confidently — perhaps even right- 
ly — expected to have influence. 
(So, as a matter of fact, is David 
Hare, and playwrights modi 
worse than an, too. But that, 
though an even more grisly sub- 
ject* -cannot- be dealt with- today.) 

I do not .wish, though tempta- 
tion is strong in me, to go-back to 
the day$ T wben actetv.who go^ 
above themselves were .Sable- to 
have their. ears cut; off and to be 
whipped through the streets at the 
cart’s tail (Mind you, I could 
name a few whose' acting -would 
probably be improved by such 
treatment) But I have begun to 
despair of ever again finding an 
actor or actress who has even read, 
let alone understood and commit- 
ted to memory, Hamlet’s advice: 


A month after his confrontation 
with the Bar over higher legal aid 
fees. Lord Hailsham, the Lord 
Chancellor, must' be 'wondering 
how to finance a system in crisis. 
The Bar is claiming an increase of 
between 30 and 40 .per cent in- 
criminal legal aid fora, the duty 
solicitor scheme is a shambles, 
and the cost to the state of our 

- cumbersome and. expensive legal 

.system creeps towards ‘£500 mil- 
lion a year! ■' . A 

' Thfir financial 1 crisis is almost 

- entirely oftheLord Chancellor's 

. CMU^aarb^paying some law- 
: yers more without making justice 
even more expensive and inacces- 
sible should force him to face op to 
the chronic overmanning of a self- 
indulgent and split profession. 

A good starting point is a speech 
by Sir John Donaldson, Master of 
the Rolls, in which he said that the 
procedure- of our civil conns was 
“too slow, too technical and too 
costly”. 

Sr John's main point was that 
while the state had a dear duty to 
bear tbe cost of maintaining 
criminal courts, it seemed “gen- 
erous to a fault” that the taxpayer 
should have to foot tbe£8004-day 
bill of providing- litigants with a 
High Chart judge, court officials 
and a heated court room in which 
to sort out their civil disputes. He 
quoted the example of one case 
between two oil companies squab- 
bling over a £3 million claim 
which lasted 60 days and cost the 
public purse more than £50,000. 

The College of Judges, and the 
Lord Chancellor, should now give 
careful thought to changing the 
system so that wealthy litigants 
and companies would pay op to 
tbe full cost of court hearings for 
sorting out tbeir disputes. After 
all, ft seems wholly illogical that 
tbe taxpayer should foot the bill 
when a judge is presiding, but not 
m cases involving a commercial 
arbitrator. 

These court costeshouMbepaid 
in full by the losing party — a 
major incentive on both sides to 
-settle before going to court. The 
■revenue thus generated would go 
to increase the Legal Aid Fund, 
which in turn would be able to 
increase the low level of fees paid 
to banisters and solicitors doing 
criminal legal aid work; in addi- 
tion, part of the money could be 
nsed to cast the net wider so that 
more people would be eligible for 
legal ukL 

Lord Haflsham wiQ also haye to 
stick’to his decision to make it a 
pr^nditiopofhirther talks -whh 
the Bar on higher legal aidjees that 
the Bar abandons its rutensquiring 
a barrister to be accompanied by a 
solicitor or Iris- - re prese n tative at 
almost every hearing, even 'when 
doing something as simple as a 
plea in mitigation in the Crown 
Court 

If the Lord Chancellor does set 
off down this road be will initiate a 
heated debate over extended 
rights of audience for solicitors. It 


remains an anomoty that solic- 
itors can conduct Jong, contested . 
actions in the county coon and 
appear before High Court judges 
in chandlers but cannot argue 
even the simplest point of law in 
the Grown Court. Indeed tbe 
system now looks little more than 
a shamefaced attempt to protect * 
fog r e st ri c ti ve practices of the Bar. 

. The chief villain in thisconspir- 
iadepeodeni Bar, 
other professions and in- 
stitutions, including foe City, are 
being reformed, is theLord Cfcan- 



HaBsham: a devotion that 
could backfire . 
cellar himself. It was he who said 
only a year npx “If I thought any 
action of mine, as Lewd Chan- 
cellor, would undermine the sepa- 
rate position of the Bar, X should 
be deeply disturbed indeed. I am a 
barrister, the son of a barrister, 
and tbe father of two barristers. I 
remain devoted to my branch of 
the profession.” 

Lon! Hailsham, and to a lesser 
extent the Attorney General, will 
cost foe legal aid system and the 
new independent crown prosecu- 
tion service millions of pounds 
this year. Instead of granting 
employed solicitors the right to 
prosecute an but foe most com- 
plex cases, independent barristers 
will have to be briefed to conduct 
-some of the amplest Crown Court 
prosecutions. In short the tax- 
payer win pay for foe Load 
Chancellor’s refusal to . extend 
solicitors' rights of audieqte-m the 
Crown Court 

Tbe irony of the predicament in 
which Loud Haflsham now finds 
himself is not tost on long- 
standing advocates of legal re- 
form. If, in spite of everything, he 
stiD refuses to introduce a more 
flexible and interchangeable rel- 
ationship between barristers and 
solidtore, particularly over rights 
of audience in the Crown Court, 
then tbe College ofJudges must do 
what it can to streamline, foe 
system. If the College also fefls to 
act, liter. nongovernment 'may 
introduce infinitely more dfoco- 
man : reforms, not merely tenure 
rag foe Bar’s present privileges bat 
perhaps abolishing k altogether. 

That is an outcome many would 
regret, and fin- which Lord 
H a fl s h a m and foe judges would be 
largely to blame. 

The author is a solicitor and legal 
adviser to Times Newspapers, 


weren’t enough downs at West- 
minster already and foe Labour 
Party has for years been stuffing its 
electoral bandwagon full of Tuck- 
ets Without, Enter a Messenger 
and Third Citizen. 

True, they came to grief re- 
cently, in tbe most ddightftil way, 
when Miss Anna Carteret (who is 
by no means the silliest actress in 
England, and one of tbe better, to 
boot) waxed fervent in support of 
Labour in a party political broad- 
cast; the Labour Party's educa- 
tional policy includes a promise to 
abolish all private schools, and the 
very next day Miss Carteret was 
found to be sending both her 
children to foe very institutions 
her heroes would close down. 

But foe case of Miss Carteret 
and the other performers who 
extol the virtues of foe Labour' 
Party brings me to the heart of my 
objection. Forget about Vanessa; 
tbe Loonies are not in foe business 
of endorsing somebody else’s 
political product — they make 
their own. It is tbe actor or actress 
who is invited to speak on a 
foe subject of his political views 


recognized political platform who 
is the object of my curiosity. 

For what is foe hidden melody 
in a performer’s political perfor- 
mance? It is, surely, a massive non 
sequitur, foe players are saying 
“You like the way we act, or sing, 
or tell jokes, so kindly vote the 
way we tell you.” But their talent 
for acting, singing and joking, 
which is the only reason they have 
ever been heard of by foe public* 
and th us foe only reason they have 
been invited to. play a political 
role, has nothing at all to do with 
an understanding of politics. Miss 
Carteret's longing for foe Labour 
Party to govern foe. country 
(provided, perhaps, that she is 
excused actually having to suffer' 
the effects of its role) is obviously 
sincere; in that sense, she is not 
playing a part. But how does her 
acting talent qualify her to carry 
political conviction? 

It doesn’t But it is not enough 
to say that although nobody is 
compelled to vote foe way an actor 
tells them to, the actor is no less 
qualified to address the nation on

Managua 

It is 4 pm in the offices of La 
Prcnsa, the only opposition daily 
in Marxist-run Nicaragua. The 
newsroom is deserted. In the 
composing room, workers list- 
lessly hang about, waiting. 

The day’s news is at the 
government censorship office and 
no one knows when, or even if, 
tomorrow’s paper will be primed. 

It can take up to nine hours. 
Often we print too late to get to 
many of our readers,” says Jaime 
Chamorro, the editor. 

La Prensa's previous editor, 
Jaime's brother Pedro Joaquin 
Cardinal Chamorro, was assas- 
sinated in 1978; the event helped 
to turn moderate, educated Nica- 
raguans against the Somoza 
dictatorship and bring the San- 
dinistas to power. 

Now iheSandinisfas point to La 
Prensa, which opposes them as 
much as it opposed Somoza. as 
proof that freedom of the press 
and political expression still exists 
in Nicaragua. But Jaime Cha- 
morro thinks differently. On foe 
front of the building, although out 
of sight of the street, is a placard 
reading “Libenad de Prensa?” 
(freedom of the press?) and a. wall 
covered with copies of censored 
stories. 

They include reports of church- 
men urging the restoration of civil 
nghls. declarations by opposition 
politicians, charge} of rape against 


Freedom to print,

singers proposal for a Central 
American solution to Nicaragua's 
civil war. 

AU foe copy for foe next day's 
taper. Chamorro says, has to be in 
by noon — an absurd time for a 
morning paper. Copies of the 
prepared pages are sent to the 
censor, who may excise whole 
stories, pictures or headlines, and 
cut or alter others. Even advertise- 
ments are closely scrutinized. 

When the pages come back the 
staff work feverishly to change 
them. Photocopies of the new 
pages have logo back to the censor 
for final approval. If further 
changes are made they have to cut 
foe negatives at the last minute. 

“We are not allowed to publish 
with any blank spaces” Chamorro 
says. “If they throw too much out 
and we don't have enough copy 
left we simply cannot print. That 
happened about ten times last 


year.” Even bright, entertaining 
stories are censored. The. 
Sandinistas, it. seems; feel that 
news should be seno.us and mor- 
ally uplifting. Sensitivity is such, 
that the headline of a footbaO 
story. “Cardinal triumphs”, was 
banned in case readers should 
think it was about a churchman. 

Chamorro admits that the staff 
now censor ihemsdves to a certain 
extent, in self-defence. “But some- 
times, out of principle, we write 
stories which we know will be' 
stopped. We keep. everything in a 
file: some day someone will look 
at it and say, yes, that was 
censorship." 

The journalists have to put up 
with a certain amount of harass- 
ment “Our news editor was- 
piefced up by a couple of men with 
machineguito — obviously sot- 


mentioning the machineguns and 
each time they were stopped. Then

LABOUR AND THE FALKLANDS 


-.‘(2 


In 1949 the Federal Republic 
of Germany was established 
and recognised by the Western 
powers. In 1950 it entered the 
European Coal and Steel 
Community. In 1955 it was 
admitted to NATO. Finally, in 
1956 West Germany entered 
the European Community and 
fiiH amity with its former 
enemies. ' These events ■ oc- 
curred, respectively, four, five, 
ten and eleven years after one 
of the most terrible, bitter and 
fiercely fought wars in history. 

The Falklands War deserves 
none of those adjectives. It 
was. in its way, a' chivalrous 
war in the midst of which the 
British Defence Minister could 
pay a tribute to the courage 
and skill of Argentinian air 
force pilots without arousing 
either shock or hostility. Ex- 
cept for the dispute over the 
sovereignty of the Falklands, 
no cause exists for hostility 
between the Argentinian peo- 
ple and this country. There is 
accordingly every reason for 
the -Labour party, looking 
optimistically ahead to when it 
might assume the responsibil- 
ity for foreign policy, to con- 
sider how - it might best 
overcome the sole obstacle to 
restoring the formerly close 
Anglo- Argentinian relation- 
ship. 


thus to implant- is them a 
perpetually nervous siege 
mentality.TnjtiaQy at least, it 
instilled a similar belief in 
Buenos Aires and - con- 
sequently built up the hope 
there that a satisfactory settle- 
ment would be reached fairly 
soon. When it became clear 
that diplomacy of its own 
accord could produce nothing 
(except perhaps more diplo- 
macy), the Argentine govern- 
ment felt cheated. And .that 
sentiment, coupled with a 
view that a decadent Britain 
would accept the fait accompli 
of a successful annexation, 
brought about the invasion. 


But the activity of an Oppo- 
sition party should be directed 
to thinking seriously about the 
Falklands problem before it 
attempts to solve it by active 
diplomacy. This is suggested 
not just by common sense, but 
also by the earlier failures of 
governments which acted on 
the principle that a solution 
would somehow evolve from 
the very process of diplomatic 
activity. 

The effect that this produced 
on the islanders was to con- 
vince them that the Foreign 
Office was bent upon selling 
them out to Buenos Aires and 


Four years later, only one 
item , in the mix remained 
unchanged — the Falklanders 
still suspect that London is 
slyly determined to betray 
them. Should Labour shadow 
Ministers arrive in Port Stan- 
ley with briefcases bristling 
with various hypothetical 
solutions, keen to explore 
them all but committed to 
none, the islanders are liable to 
resist every proposal and to 
borrow from Ulster loyalists 
the negotiating posture of “not 
an inch* 4 . The islanders would 
find support, as they have 
donein the past, from back- 
benchers of all parties. 

This train of events would 
create the worst possible cli- 
mate for any fresh negotiations 
between London and Buenos 
Aires, whether Conducted by 
Mrs Thatcher or, as the La- 
bour party study indicates, by 
an incoming Labour govern- 
ment It would' do so, more- 
over, in the service of a purely . 
theoretical diplomacy by an 
Opposition which could not 
clinch any. . success it 
mightachieve. Meanwhile 
Labour’s efforts might actually 
drive the government into 
diplomatic obstructionism. 

Far better, then, for Labour 
foreign policy thinkers to use 


the luxury of non-responsibil- 
ity to think out a dear solution 
before negotiating one. Mr 
George FouDces, the author of 
die report and his party's 
spokesman on Latin America, 
might begin, by considering 
how to meet the two most 
passionate (and reasonable) 
desires of the islanders: The 
first is that their distinctive 
institutions and way of life 
should' be " preserved tin- 
contaminated by Argentinian 
customs or by an influx of 
' Argentinians in sufficient 
numbers to tilt the balance of 
population. The second is that 
any agreement which estab- 
lished such rights should be 
protected against a change of 
mind (or government) in Bue- 
nos Aires. 

Of the various solutions 
under discussion, two might 
be married in order to meet 
these fears; joint sovereignty 
and leaseback. If the islands 
were to be placed under, the 
joint sovereignty of Britain 
and Argentina but leased back 
for a lengthy period to a British 
administration, that would as- 
sure the Islanders that their 
local customs would survive. 
Joint sovereignty, on the other 
band, would be ah additional 
safeguard against Argentina’s 
reneging. It would also meet 
the political objection to sim- 
ple leaseback: popular opinion 
might conclude that British 
soldiers had died for a time- 
table: 

Labour, by advancing such 
ideas, might find a surprising 
echo ini Conservative and Alli- 
ance opinion.- It might 
additionally . begin the 
construction of a new “Fa!k- 
(ands lobby” in parliament 
that would defend both the 
interests and reasonable 
wishes of the FaUdaoders with- 
out making their rights the 
cause of an unending quarrel 
with a nation long deemed 
friendly. 


MR HURD CAULS TIME 


The licensing regime applied 
to the sale and consumption of 
alcoholic beverages is a pure 

example of regu&tion without 
principle: It is a set of regula- 
tions that continues because 
neither politician nor official 
chooses to question its pur-, 
poses. Public houses close at 
three o’clock (or earlier) in 
England not to restrict drink- 
ing but because that is the 
inherited pattern, the pattern 
enforced by Asquith and Lloyd 
George for the sake of weapons 
manufacture. They acted, they 
thought, for the sake of victory 
against the Hun. Their regime 
persists in this age of mass 
tourism, leisure, and service 
employment, for no intelli- 
gible reason. 

Mr Douglas Hurd is, it will 
be recalled, neither the min- 
ister for munitions, nor the 
minister of health, nor the 
secretary for trade. He is none 
the less the minister for the 
control of drink. He has 
studied the problem in all its 
particulars and felt em- 
powered to make on Monday a 
radical announcement to the 
House of Commons. “The 
Government,” he said, “be- 
lieve there is a strong case for 
considering some relaxation 


on licensing hours in England, 
and Wales.” It will not how- 


ever do' the considering now, 
nor. tomorrow. It wilt do it, 
later (after the' election per- 
haps, when, the House wiH 
without doubt be filled with 
Members anxious- to reform 
licensing, statutes and their 
regulatory kin restricting Sun- 
day shopping.) . 

After the Government’s fail- 
tire to put in place a twentieth 
century regime for Sunday 
commerce, it is . under- 
standable that- courageous 
deregulators are not vocaL 
Perhaps the opponents of the 
liberalization of leisure are 
more diverse than the govern- 
ment thinks. Perhaps there are 
Sabbatarians who would enjoy 
a drink at UJlOpni. Who 
knows? But the government 
evidently fears the doctors and 
Salvationists who will oppose 
relaxed Licensing laws would 
present (given its general un- 
certainty) an insuperable bar- 
rier. 

Mr Hurd might have made a 
fist of it He has in his hand 
that impressive survey from 
the Office of Population Cen- 
suses and Surveys showing 
how, in Scotland,- enlighten- 
ment on pub opening hours 


has been .correlated • with 
reductions in drink-related 
crime and public; dnjnfcemiess- 
A correlation is to he sure not 
an explanation, but the Scot- 
tish evidence should reassure 
both those worried about vol- 
umes of alcohol; intake and 
people who live near pubs and 
wine bars. 

Were they asked, a majority, 
of the adult population of 
England and Wales would find 
no convincing reason why they 
should not be treated by the 
law as rational consumers. The 
instincts of Mrs Thatcher's 
government have been . to 
articulate that public senti- 
ment. Tt has not, however, 
delivered change in face of 
determined sectional oppo- 
sition nor have ministers 
proved adept at mobilizing 
popular support for reform. 


Some private member 
should now have a go. And if 
the government cannot muster 
the courage to implement a 
reform in which it proclaims 
its belief, it should try to 
summon up the lesser nerve to 
give bis bill a fair par- 
liamentary wind. Mr Huid, if 
the prospect makes him “frit” 
might resort to Dutch courage. 


LAST CHANCE IN COLOMBO 


Recent bomb outrages in Sn 
Lanka have shocked an island 
in which violence of one kind 
of another has become almost 
commonplace during the last 
three years. Not only that but 
they have reverberated round 
a world which has so far 
regarded the issue as intemaL 

Its roots are deeply embed- 
ded within the island's racial 
structure — which is why early 
optimism over ending the 
violence militarily seemned 
misplaced. Under British im- 
perial rule, the energetic Tamil 
minority enjoyed a position 
disproportionate to . its 
numerical strength. The result 
after independence m 1948. 
was an attempt by successive 
governments in Colombo to 
restore what they thought to be 
a more equitable balance, by 
positive discrimination in »■ 
vour of the Sinhalese majority. 
This in turn led to nsm g 
discontent in the Tamil strong- 
holds of the North and East to 
a backlash against them — ana 
to worsening Woodshed. 

Whatever mistakes ins gov- 
ernment and its preecun* 0 ^ 
have made in the past 15 
hard not to feel some sym^ ■ 
pathv with President Juniu s 
Jayewardene. But the sdnsms 
which have now developed 
with bloody results, even 
within the Tamil secaaong. 
movement suggest that sn 
Lanka’s armed forces have, a 
hard • " 


if only to contain file violence 
while the search a for. a 
political solution continues. It 
is therefore unfortunate that 
the president, however great 
the frustration, has been 
tempted into dark threats to 
“unleash the army” on the 
North. Not only do such 
comments erode what .con- 
fidence remains in the military 
among the moderate Tamil 
communities, but it serves to 
antago nize the. government in 
Delhi which is supposedly 
trying to fill the honest broker 
role. •• . 

Although the hardening 1 ; 
atlitufes on both sides - has 
made a political compromise 
increasingly difficult, it is still 
by no ftteans beyond 
Jayewardene’s Capabilities. 

But be will need substantial 
help. In return for these con- 
cessions, the Delhi govern- 
ment will need to exercise its 
influence with the Tamil ex- 
tremists, to persuade them to 
give up their demands for the 
indpendent Tamil state . 
oPEdam” and settle, for a 

reasonable compromise. That 

will not be easy since the ; 
groups now dominating the 
Tamil* community have no 
real interest in a political. : 
solution. They . have obtained, 
their dominance fry massa- 
cring their Tamil rivals, they . 
have Unks whh mtetiaational 
terrorism, .aad: ihey have 
objectives’ wider than Tamil. ■ 


separatism which amount to 
eradicating the democratic sys- 
tem of government in the 
country. Moves for a political 
solution need to be main- 
tained not in order to win such 
groups round, but in order-to 
create the conditions in the 
Tamil community in which 
more moderate leaders mi^ht 
have ' a chance of gaining 
support. 


Can the Indian government 
deliver any negotiations? So 
far its Tamil sympathies have 
not exactly helped it in its role 
of mediator. But it is among 
the very few outside influences 
which might bring the ex- 
tremists in the North to come 
to terms with reality. 


Meanwhile there is one 
alternative: This is to re- 
invoke the good offices of the 
Commonwealth and . its Sec- 
retary-General Mr. Sonny 
Raxnphal. Mr. Ramphal was 
prepared to help at an earlier 
stage — an initiative which fell 
through when it was disclosed 
prematurely. - Events have 
moved forward since then - or 
perhaps “backwards” might 
seem more appropiale. There 
is no reason why the Sri 
Lankan govembment should 
not turn to him now if Delhi's 
latest intervention ' should 
prove fruitless. It is. after all, a 
task which should not only 
concern the Commonwealth 
but involve it as well. 


LETTERS TO THE EDITOR 


Lack of resources in hospitals 


From Dr D. J. Fairlamb and 
others 

Sir, We are consultants working in 
a deprived district in the West 
Midlands who wish to supporc the 
argument for increased resources 
tt) the acme hospital sector raised 
in the letter from Dr Thompson 
and others (May 13X 

It is a matter of record that the 
Woverbampton Health Authority 
is under-provided . for all major 
specialties. There -should be 250 
acute medical beds, but in fact 
there are 145, a serious imder- 
pfovtsion that has existed for 
decades. The result of this under- 
pro vision is that for 2% years there 
has been a continual bed crisis, 
with medical patients being 
nursed in beds designated for 
other specialties and a consequent 
dislocation of service provided. 

For example, one third of the 
beds; on the cancer ward are 
constantly occupied by medical 
patients. The regional normative 
number of cancer beds for the unit 
is SO, whereas only 16 are pro- 
vided. 

Our current capita] programme, 
due to be completed in 1995, will 
correct the worst deficit, but is 
based on the assumption that this 
district will still- be approximately 
10 per cent deprived against its 
normative requirement. 

■ We sympathise whh the prob- 
lems fa the Thames regions, as a 
result of the application formulae 
of RAWP (r esource allocation 
working party). However, until a 
general increase in hospital fund- 
ing occurs and is applied to the 
most needy areas. RAWP must 
continue. ■

spread the limited resources more 
fairly. Government and the medi- 
cal professional associations must 
devise a mechanism for moving 
out of London not only the money 
released by bed closures but also 
the medical teams and their 
associated costs. 

To close beds without shifting 
medical manpower and its asso- 
ciated costs is to add to the 
frustration and fury that bed 
closures provoke and does little to 
help the districts outside London 
take on their proper share of the 
service in relation to their 
population’s needs. 

Yours faithfully, 

AUSON MUNRO, Chairman,

PO Box 42,

Broyle Road, 

Chichester, 

West Sussex. 


From the Chcdrmrm of Chichester 
Health Authority 
Sir, The real trouble with the 
London teaching hospitals is that 
they have too many doctors. As 
more beds are dosed to achieve 
the required economies, the situa- 
tion worsens. Already one hears of 
-snefa absurd iti es as as many as 14 
consultants for a - ward with 23- 
beds. . . 

At the same time many districts 
like tins outside London are short 
of doctors at all levels In certain 
specialities such as orthopaedics 
and geriatrics and lade the means 
to build up the medical teams they 
need. 

. Ifthe object of NHS policy is, as 
we are frequently assured, to 


From Dr R. A. Durance 
Sir, Mr Berriman (May 15) is 
justly proud of the new hospitals 
in his region. There is much to be 
admired in them. But in seeming 
to endorse the resource allocation 
working party’s policy of increas- 
ing the funding of district general 
hospitals at the expense of teach- 
ing hospitals, be ignores the fact 
that the North East Thames 
Regional Health Authority (of 
which be is chairman), is com- 
posed not only of five teaching 
hospitals, but also of a great many 
district general hospitals. 

In redistributing resources in 
favour of the provinces, it is 
certainly not the peripheral hos- 
pitals of his own “metropolitan'' 
region which stand to gain, as 
might have been inferred by his 
letter. 

His argument would have car- 
ried more weight if such new 
hospitals as that in Colchester 
were given the necessary revenue 
to function. When you bear. Sir, 
that the opening of the new 
hospital m this town has promptly 
led to the closure of one other 
hospital and the resultant hard- 
ship, another is to follow, and that 
vacant consultancies in anaesthe- 
sia, geriatrics, haematology, 
neurology and rheumatology Can- 
not be financed, you will under- 
stand that the garden of the North 
East Thames Regional Health 
Authority is less full of roses than 
Mr Beni man would have you 
believe. 

I am. Sir. his obedient servant,

Chernobyl disaster 

From Dr P,C R. Pilcher 
Sir, Mr Ian Lloyd (May 15) evades 
the essential issue. It does seem to 
be true that the development of 
nuclear power is at the present 
time expedient, and I should not 
wish to identify myself with what 
Mt Lloyd calls the 
“unscrupulous" opposition to 
anything “nuclear”. But the issue 
of just what are the long-term risks 
has not been settled to the 
satisfaction of the non-partisan 
layman. It is no answer at all to 
point, to -the long-term risks of 
conventional forms of energy 
production: these, too, must be 
accurately estimated and set in the 
balance 'so that' a' considered 
choice can be made. ' 

To talk of the “worst-case 
scenario” and “courage” in the 
way that Mr Lloyd does actually 
implies that the worst-case sce- 
nario is a real possibility, albeit 
remote. The question is, how 
remote, and what are the best 
projections into the very long- 
term future: say 5,000 years? 

What should we reel if the 
anrienis had left us a lethal legacy? 
It has been said that, for the 
foreseeable future, the likely 
deaths from famine and other 


natural disasters wUl exceed by 
many times the likely deaths from 
nudear accidents. Even if this be 
true, it misses the essential point: 
deaths from natural disasters do 
not damage the race, but the 
possibility of cumulating radi- 
ation effects over generations 
should vitally influence the de- 
risions that we take now. 

What precisely will be the risks 
when the whole earth is pet 


with nuclear power stations? What 
wiU be the associated problems of 
waste disposal? Is not a certain 
number of accidents statistically 
inevitable — and predictable? 
What is that number, and over 
what period might cumulative 
effects become such as to threaten 
the survival of the race of civilisa- 
tion? As a layman, am I indeed 
cornea in suspecting that my part 
fa the decisions now taken might 
leave a legacy to my descendants 
from which they will perish? 

Without an answer to these 
questions, my reaction to further 
developments in the field of 
nudear power is one to make me 
pause. I simply ask for full and 
frank information. 

Yours faithfully, 

D. R- PITCHER,

Observatory’s future 

From Professor F F. Winkler 
Sir, As a visiting astronomer 
spending a sabbatical year in 
Britain, fhave been following with 
interested disinterest the con- 
troversy surrounding the derision 
to move the Royal Greenwich 
Observatory from Herstmonceux. 

British astronomy has success- 
fully maintained a position of 
world leadership for three centu- 
ries (out of all proportion to the 
clarity of English skies, I might 
add). This postion is now in peril. 
Funds to support astronomy are 
declining and much of that fiind- 
ineseems inefficiently directed. 

The RGO is a case in point. The 
present staff is too large for the 
Observatory's current and future 
mission and as a result it siphons 
off too huge a fraction of the 
limited funds -available for 
astronomical research. 

IS not the' driving reason for 
closing Herstmonceux and mov- 
ing the RGO elsewhere simply a 
convenient means for trimming 
the staff? Surely that effect will be 
achieved, for many will judge it 
too disruptive to move their 
families from Sussex to Edin- 
burgh. Manchester, or even to 
Cambridge. Unfortunately for the 
RGO, the personnel most likely to • 
resign rather than move are the 
technical staffs whose readily 
marketable skills will make it easy 
for them to find other employ- 
ment Those least confident of 
lhcir ability will follow the obser- 
vatory wherever, resulting -fa a 
sadly emasculated RGO. 

The Science 1 and Engineering 
Research Council's arguments (as 
Stated by E. W. J; Mitchell in your ; 
edition of May 10) for relocating 
the RGO at a university seem . 
secondary. If one were starting 
from scratch to build an obser- 
vatory headquarters a university 
campus might well be the site of 
choice. But the ideals of hindsight 
no longer apply. 


The RGO is, of course, already 
located in excellent purpose-built 
buildings at Herstmonceux that 
are surely superior to any new 
home they may expect to find 
through a self-financing move. 
Cooperation with scientists from 
many universities in astronomical 
research and in instrument 
development can and does take 
place from its present location. 
And the proximity to Gatwick 
makes transportation to the op- 
tical telescopes on La Palma in the 
Canary Islands more convenient 
than from any of the proposed 
alternatives. 

Reducing the staff by moving 
the RGO and seeing who chooses 
to come along may be cost- 
effective, in that some redundancy 
payments are avoided, but it is not 
the path to excellence. It is better 
in the long run to make hard 
decisions — to select a staff whose 
skills are most compatible with 
the dual mission of developing 
and maintaining modem in- 
struments to serve all British 
astronomers, and of continuing a 
strong in-house research program 
consistent with the long tradition 
of the RGO. 

Leave the RGO at Herst- 
monceux. A large portion of the 
splendid grounds (including the 
castle if need be) could still be sold 
to a compatible buyer, while 
keeping the modem research 
buildings intact The library and 
archives, now housed in the castle, 
could be comfortably accom- 
modated in other existing build- 
ings once the staff is reduced. 
Proceeds from the sale of the 
castle and grounds would finance 
the reorganization of the RGO's 
present- home with a tidy sum left 
over to support new research.

Airborne trail of 
virus disease 


From the Director of the Animal 
Virus Research Institute 
SirJn his note on the possibility of 
the transmission of rabies to the 
UK. by bats (May 5) Hugh Clayton 
mentions that birds were Named 
for bringing foot-and-mouth from 
France to the Isle of Wight in 
1981. In point of fact, carriage of 
virus by birds was never at any 
time considered as a plausible 
explanation for the origin of the 
outbreaks of the disease on Jersey 
and the Isle of Wight. 

Research following the major 
epizootic of the disease in the 
Midlands in 1967/68 dearly dem- 
onstrated the importance of the 
airborne route of transmission of 
the virus. Infected pigs in particu- 
lar are capable of releasing into the 
air very large amounts ofinfective 
virus and, providing the climatic 
conditions are suitable, virus can 
remain in a relatively confined 
column of air which can be blown 
by wind over surprisingly long 
distances, especially over water. 

A computer model has been 
developed by the Meteorological 
Office. Bracknell and the Animal 
Virus Research Institute, 
PirbrighL This makes possible 
predictions of the likelihood of 
spread of infection, knowing the 
numbers of animals involved in 
an outbreak of disease and the 
local climatic conditions around 
the time of the outbreak in terms 
of wind direction and relative 
humidity, etc. 

In March, 1981, when there 
were several large piggeries af- 
fected by the disease near 
Henensal, northern France, the 
computer analysis of the situation 
indicated that outbreaks of the 
disease could be expected in the 
Channel Islands and the Isle of 
Wight, but not in southern En- 
gland. In the event this is exactly 
what happened and the State 
veterinary services were well pre- 
pared to bring the disease rapidly 
under control. 

While It is not impossible that 
birds could act as purely mechani- 
cal vectors of the virus, it is now 
very likely that many outbreaks in 
the past, when the Continent of 
Europe was much more severely 
affected by the disease than it is at 
present, were due to the airborne 
spread of the virus and not the 
result of the involvement of birds. 

It has to be emphasized that 
although the virus of foot-and- 
mouth disease can be spread by 
the airborne route, this does not 
mean necessarily that other vi- 
ruses are spread in the same 
manner. There is no evidence to 
date that the virus of rabies is 
transmitted by this mechanism.

Woodland eyesore 

From Mrs Diana Monro 
Sir, Lord Esher’s letter (May 13) 
about the “PVC” (sic) tree sheiter 
as “a new horror at large” is 
almost completely misconceived. 

The majority of tree shelters 
now employed in the UK are 
made of polypropylene in a pleas- 
ant shade of light brown and will 
degrade naturally in four to five 
years. Some are white (trans- 
lucent) and are useful in tracing 
small transplants in dense cover. 
Meanwhile they provide protec- 
tion against animals, weeds and 
weather. Above all they promote 
early growth to a degree hitherto 
impossible. They also enable 
planting to take place where 
otherwise it would not have been 
economic (an aesthetic and 
commercial advantageX 

Millions are made in Britain 
and exported all over the world. 
They have been described as “the 
best thing to come to forestry since 
the Wellington boot”. 

A “fully transparent” or “dart 
brown” tree shelter would be 
practically useless. The admission 
oflight must be carefully governed 
to provide the “mini-climate” in 
which vast numbers of our future 
trees are now flourishing for the 
gratification of our descendants 
and thanks to this brilliant inven- 


uon. 

Yours faithfully.

Croatian war crimes 

From Dr Bojan Bujic 
Sir. My father having perished in 
one of the extermination camps in 
wartime Croatia, I may count 
myself, indirectly, as one of 
.Andrija Artukovic’s victims. Yet, 
I was somewhat disquieted by the 
news ofa death sentence passed on 
him after the trial just concluded 
in Zagreb (report. May 15). 

Coming, as it does, more than 
40 years after his reign of terror 
came to an end the sentence, even 
if considered just in legal terms, 
inevitably assumes lineaments of 
revenge. 

Artukovic’s disregard of the 
sanctity of human life seems to me 
to have been inspired by a firm 
religious (I hesitate to call it 
Christian) zeal which enabled him 
to imagine himselfas a defender of 
the Catholic purity of Croatia 
against what he probably saw as 
the menaces of Orthodox 
Christianity and communist 
godlessness. 

If the sentence were to be 
commoted now, the gesture would 
perhaps help to demonstrate to 
him the existence of compassion 
and mercy — the virtues he 
himself so demonstrably lacked. 
Yours faithfully, 

BOJAN BUJIC

MAY 21 1864 


The Danish- Prussian war, the _ 

origins of which were noted in this 
column last year (April 4), began 
in January 1864. In October of 
that year the defeated Danes 
signed a peace treaty in Vienna. 
Throughout the campaign the 
sympathies of The Times had 
been with Denmark, The paper's 


Special Correspondent was

DENMARK AND 
GERMANY. 

(From our Special 
Correspondent lately at 
the Danish head -quarters.) 

Copenhagen, May 17. 

After all the endless trouble the 
statesmen of the London Confer- 
ence have undergone to patch up 
an armistice or trace between the 
belligerent Powers, we must not be 
surprised if we bear that all their 
labour has been in vain, and that 
hostilities will break out again 
before the expiration of the term 
appointed for their suspension. 
Ever since we received the first 
announcement of the resolution of 
the diplomatists assembled in Lon- 
don, and up to Saturday last, the 
14th, the Prussians have continued 
to carry on the wholesale spoliation 
which had signalized their pres- 
ence in the Jutland provinces, and 
which tod raised against them so 
univena] a feeling of indignation 
throughout Europe. Their contri- 
butions are still laid upon and 
levied from most of the townships, 
and where the municipal authori- 
ties. referring to the terms of the 
London agreement (according to 
which “La Prusse et I’Autriche 
s'obligent pendant la suspension 
des hostilxtes a ne point fever des 
contributions de guerre”), refuse to 
comply with the spoiler’s demands, 


the soldiers are allowed, and even 
directed, to help themselves to 
anything they can End in the shops 
or at the farmhouses, in not 
unfrequent instances breaking into 
the stores by main force, like 
common burglars. 

In some places, it is true, 
acknowledgements and quittances 
are delivered to the persons thus 
robbed, with assurances that the 
bonds “shall be honoured at the 
end of the war.” But, again, there 
axe cases in which the local 
authorities, upon remonstrating 
against the flagrant breach of the 
agreement and abuse of power, 
have been threatened with instant 
imprisonment. There is no doubt, 
also, that the other condition, that 
the allied armies should not 
entraver le commerce, ni les 
communications, ni la marche 
reguKere de l’admmistxatibh ”.has 
been utterly disregarded. The Aus- 
trians have even confiscated the 
wires and other gear belonging to 
the telegraph establishment; and in 
some localities they have prevent- 
ed the citizens from hoisting their 
national and Royal flag, the 
Dannebrog; and be it borne in 
mind that the Germans, besides 
helping themselves to what they 
had immediate occasion for. or had 
taken a fancy to, have also laid 
under sequestration such property 
and merchandise as might be of use 
to them at some future period, fry 
closing the shops and putting their 
seals to the doors, thus claiming 


eventual rights of possession, and 
preventing the owners from doing 
as they please with their goods. 

It is remarkable, also, that the 
behaviour of the allied troops since 
the announcement of the truce has 
not been everywhere exactly the 
same, for while Marshal Wrangel, 
at his head-quarters in Hoisens; 
tos shown some disposition to 
spare the inhabitants and respect 
the conditions imposed by the 
London Conference, some of his 
subalterns, away from his immedi- 
ate influence, have set no limits to 
their rapacity, and aggravated 
their spoliations by the harshness 
and brutality of their behaviour. 
One of the officers who has risen to 
greater distinction by these acts of | 
lawless depredation is General 
Count Vogel von Falkenstein, who 
has made himself famous at 
Aarhuus and throughout Jutland 
under the name of . “Der 
RaubvogeL" 

A glance at any of the Copenha- 
gen papers, or the perusal of a 
variety of private letters, would 
suffice to accumulate a sufficient 
amount of evidence to prove either 
that the Austro- Prussian Govern- 
ments are not willing to abide by 
the terms of the armistice, and to 
observe their own share of the 
obligations devolving upon them, 
or that the discipline of their 
armies is not strong and thorough 
enough to bind their commanders 
to their duties. With the ample 
means of communication placed at 
their disposal and the excellent 
management ■ for which the Ger- 
man commissariat is justly re- 
nowned, it would be worse than 
die to plead the necessities of their 
troops as an excuse for the excesses 
of which they have made them- 
selves guilty. . . 

. — lam not at all surprised toF 
hear the organs of public opinion in 
the counp-y declaring that the! 
armistice is nothing but a delusion 
and a snare. . .

THE INSTITUTE OF COST AND 
MANAGEMENT ACCOUNTANTS/1 


f FOCUS 1 


MAY 21, 1986 


All geared up for 
a charter 


year of change 


This year could be a turning 
point for the Institute of Cost 
and Management Accoun- 
tants. A new president is lined 
up. a name change is in 
prospect and there are plans to 
increase the institute's public 
profile. 

Peter Lawrence, a vice pres- 
ident. is due to take over as 
president from Dr John 
Delany at the annual meeting 
in June. Mr Lawrence is the 
first to say that the ICMA 
council works as a team, but a 
change of emphasis is 
inevitable. 


Dr Delany has been closely 
associated with the drive to 
integrate the profession. There 
are now six accountancy bod- 
ies, which he believes is too 
many. The ICMA, which rep- 
resents management accoun- 
tants, most of whom writ in 
industry, is committed to 
work for the unification of the 
profession, so at least all those 
who work in industry, com- 
merce and the public sector or 
offering non audit work 
should belong to a single 
stream. 

In recent months, however. 


this project has been put on 
the rack burner. In its latest

sayjc"It must be recognized 
that the possibility of achiev- 
ing fhis goa! (integration) win

Institutes make it their own 
aim. 

Mr Lawrence saysr“I don’t 
see integration as a major 
plank of strategy." Instead be

nication. As a result, the 
iCMA’s public relations bud- 
get Is set to rise from £59,000 
in 1985 to £200,000 next year. 

As well as marketing the 
institute to outsiders, Mr Law- 
rence will spend much of bus 
time as president in visiting 
regional branches. His other 
priorities include the Ad- 
vanced learning Foundation, 
boosting the consultancy sec- 
tion and harnessing the ener- 
gies of the institute’s brighter 
young members. Most of these 
points are covered by the 
recent Strategy Review. 

Mr Lawrence will take over 
the presidency when members 
will also be asked to consider 
the second name change in the 
institute’s history. For its first 
53 years of life it was the 
Institute of Cost and Works 
Accountants, with the current 
loftier title adopted as recently 
as 1972. Three years later the 
ICMA was granted a Royal 
Charter but it has not been 
able to incorporate 
"chartered" into its title until 
now.

The ICAEW claims that 
would cause confusion be- 
tween its members who are

and the members of the ICMA 
who are not allowed to do any 
auditing and who are trained 
in industry and commerce. 


Practical and 
simple approach 
' applauded 


Wales, which has objected to 
the use of “chartered” in the 
ICMA name in the past, said 
last week: "We are very happy 
that they should change their 
name." 

The ICAEW does not how- 
ever want individual mem- 
bers of the ICMA to change 
their designation. Mr Jenkins 


The new name, agreed alter 
long negotiations, is to be The 
Chartered Institute of Man- 
agement Accountants. Assum- 
ing members approve the 
change it will be put before the 
Privy Council later in the year. 
The members however will 
not be changing their 
designation. 

The ICMA has more than 
25,000 members, against the 
ICAEW’s 80,000. In time 
however the ICMA could 
catch up. Already it is growing 
fast, having nearly doubled in 
.size since Tom 
became secretary m 1$73. 


however is that the 
ICAEW, which is widely seen 
as the standard bearer for the 
practising profession, is also 
more representative of ac- 
countants in industry than the 
ICMA, in so far as it has more 
members in industry than the 
ICMA. The implication is that 
if any one of the existing 
bodies were to represent the 
150,000 or so accountants 
now belonging to the six 
accountancy bodies, it should 
be the ICAEW. Members of 
the ICMA would find this 
hard to accept

other accountancy bodies, ft 
won widespread applause, for 
example, for its radical stand 
on inflation accounting. In- 
stead of complicated notes to 
the accounts, as 
the Acco unting 
Committee, it suggested a 
simple two line adjustment. 
Now that the ASC require- 
ment has been abandoned, 
partly because it was loo 
complex for practical pur- 
poses, many observers regret 
that the whole profession did 
not adopt this simpler 
approach. 

On more recent issues the 
ICMA has more or less agreed 
with other accounting bodies. 
In a submission in February to 
the Office of Fan Trading 
inquiry into the professions 
however the ICMA hit out 
indirectly at its rivals. 

In particular Dr Delany, in 
his capacity as president, sug- 
gested that ICAEW members 
should no longer be responsi- 
ble for auditing companies; 
public limited companies, 
most of which are listed on the 
stock exchange, should be 
audited by an Audit Commis- 
sion and the requirement to 
audit small companies should 
be dropped, he said. 

Friendly rivalry between the 
accountancy bodies is almost 
endemic and integration 
therefore seems unlikely in the 
near term at least. Last year 
ICMA members defeated a 
motion to merge with the 
Chartered Association of Cer- 
tified Accountants, though the 
council did approve a recipro- 
cal arrangement with the Insti- 
tute of Management 
Consultants. 


The Strategy Review secs a 
course for the Institute of Cost 
and Management Accoun- 
tants to follow for the next few 
years. It was presented last 
November by Dr John 
Delany. president of the insti- 
tute, and already a number of 
its recommendations have 
been implemented. More 
changes will follow.

1983 documents. Strategic 
Aims and Policies. The com- 
mittee included Dr Delany, 
the two vice presidents, Peter - 
Lawrence and Professor Mi- 
chael Bromwich, and three 
other members. They started 
from the premise that there 
should be some machinery for 
implementing recommenda- 
tions. "Attention is drawn to 
the dangers of failing to cany 
out stated policy intentions," 
says the review, referring to 
the feet that the 1983 docu- 
ment was not used assiduous- 
ly as a guide to action. 

With that admonition is 
mind, the review tackled Ions 
term objectives quite sepa- 
rately from short term op- 
tions. It set out 25 short tens 
options, of which all except 
one, proposing the estab- 
lishment ofa Livery company, 
were approved by the council. 

The review recommended 
that the ICMA should discuss 
long term unification of the 
profession. Though talks con- 
tinue. realization of this aim 
looks unlikely at lead in the 
near future. 

The recommendation that 
the annual report should look 
forward as well as record past 
events has by contrast already 
been implemented. As a result 
the 1985 annual report and 
accounts includes a section 
Looking Ahead, which re- 
states the general thrust of the 
strategy review.

.The review was also con- 
cerned with improving com- 
munication with members 
ami a commzttee is currently 
looking at how best to achieve 
this aim. Among other ideas it 
is considering soring up a hot 
line, a freepost facility and a 
competition for good suggest 
tions. The review suggests the 
establishment of a senior 
members group to link past 
presidents and those promi- 
nent in business, a younger 
members group for the under 
30s. anda sudeni group.

With more than 40,000 stu- 
dents world-wide, compared 
with a total of 25,000 qualified 
members — education and 
training plays a major role in 
the Institute of Cost and 
, Management Accountants’ 
1 policy. And, although h does 
not itself run or approve 
training courses, a tot of work 
goes into ensuring students are 
equipped to become the next 
generation of management 
accountants. 

But, the ICMA says, thi$ 
does not mean it churns out 
the bean counters and score 
keepers traditionally associat- 
ed with the accountancy pro- 
fession. Instead it sees its 
members as financial manag- 
ers, an integral part of a 
company's management 
team.

elements of a finance 
manager's job. He must act as 
controller; safeguarding and 
accounting for the company’s 
assets. As a decision mafay he 
must look, for example, at 
what to buy and how to 
market products; as a strategic 
planner he must consider the 
company’s future; and as a 
treasurer, monitor the 
company’s cash flow and de- 
cide bow to earn it and spend 
iL 

The training programme 
designed to equip students 
with these skills has two 
interlocking strands — exami- 
nations and practical experi- 
ence. To qualify as 1 a student, 
applicants need eithera degree 


w Quiversity entrance level 
qualifications. But to qualify 
for membership of the ICMA, 
students need broad . work 
experience as well as e«rm 
passes. 

The institute sets both the 
syllabus and the exams. These 
were updated last year to 
incorporate changes in ac- 
counting, particularly ad- 
vances in information 
technology. Dr Alex Young, 
chairman of the education and 
training committee, says the 
aim oi the syllabus is “to 
pro vide a broad exam base 
which is I intend to the 
student's work in practice.” 

.The syflabus is in four 
stages, each with four 
The first three cover 
and analytic skills, including 
papers on law, economics, 
information technology and 
taxation. The final stajs, de- 
signed to test a candidate’s 
ability to work as part of a 

All the students 
work in industry 

management team, covers 
subjects such as decision mak- 
ing, strategic planning,- con- 
trol, audit and marketing. * 

Ail the ICMA’s students 
work in industry and to suit 
the requirements of different 
employers, studying can be 
done in a variety of ways 
ranging from block or day 
release courses at college or 
private tutors, to “ distan ce 
learning” by correspondence 
courses. 

Devising a syllabus to suit 
this variety of study methods 


was not easy. One way the 
syllabus tries to help is by 
giving students an indication 

of the depth of knowledge 
required. Each part of the 
syikbus is marked on a scale 
from 1, meaning appreciation 
of the subject, to 4, which 
means the student should be 
able to apply the knowledge in 
practice. And the various 
parts of each paper are weight- 
ed as a guide to the amount of 
study time needed. 

The institute estimates that 
students of. average ability 
with so exemptions should 
complete the course in four to 
five years of part-time study, a 
year less if full time. Gradu- 
ates can qualify for exemp- 
tions so they should get 
through more quickly. 

But the exams are only half 
of it Before admission to 
membership students must 
also have at least three years' 
work experience, monitored 
by the ICMA through log 
books which the students keep 
throughout training. The ex- 
perience must include basic 
accounting, management ac- 
counting, decision making 
and co-operation with other 
departments in the 
organization. 

This part of the training can 
only be carried out at work 
and that means co-operation 
and liaison with employers. 
Some companies do run struc- 
tured training courses and the 
ICMA will give help and 
advice to companies wishing 
to set one up. Similariy, it will 
approve training courses 
which meet its requirements.

The four stages to becoming a management accountant 



currently about 450 are on the 
register. 

while large comp ani es are 
most likely to have structured 
courses, this does not neces- 
sarily mean they are the best 
place to train. Small firms can 
offer a wide range of experi- 
ence because the accountant 
has to be a jack-of-all-trades. 

To encourage companies to 
set up schemes and to show 
how to run a good scheme, the 
institute runs a training award 
for companies with special 
management accounting pro- 
grammes. Last year’s winner 
was theTI Group. 

John Sellers, TTs group 
financial controller, sees, the 


irmin role of an accountant in 
the company as navigating: 
“Looking forward rather than 
back, planning the business, 
developing strategy, using the 
figures rather train simply 
producing them.” So the train- 
ing programme is rigorously 
structured to instill these qual- 
ities into new recruits. TTs 
aim is to equip these recruits 
to become directors of one of 
the group's smaller companies 
by tbeageof29. 

TI students study through 
correspondence courses but 
also have a senior official as a 
“mentor” . to guide them 
through training, sort out 
problems — and hound them 


when their performance slips. 
Training is split into four 
toms, ending with a spell in 
bead office learning how a pic 
rivals with the outside worid, 
including relations with share- 
holders and the City. 

The finance training 
scheme, which is pare of a 
wider management- course, 
has been going for about five 
years. Already, according to 
Mr Sellers, one trainee is 
almost ready to become a 
director. And he is only 26. 

But, in common with many 
others who offer good train- 
ing, TI does suffer from the 
“brain drain” syndrome. Too 
often people groomed by the 


group suddenly find them- 
selves very marketable and 
move on 

Rolls Royce, another ICMA 
training award winner, has 
similar problems. But Ron 
Giffin, controller of financial 

Qualification for 
all of industry 

planning, is philosophical. 
“We normally hold on to 
some. And the scheme does 
give us the benefit of having 
people with fresh minds com- 
ing through the organization, 
which really sharpens us up.” 


Marketability is something 
the ICMA prides itself on. The 
qualification is designed for all 
industry sectors, from the 
Civil Service to manufactur- 
ing. And members do work in 
all areas of business, at all 
levels. Of the 25,000 mem- 
bers, more than 25 per cent are 
in senior positions — directors, 
chairman, company secretar- 
ies and financial controllers. 

“I see it as a cradle-to-grave 
qualification,” says Reed’s Mr 
Francis. “And that can't be 
bad.”

The special manager in the headhunter’s sights 


The manager who is capable 
of manipulating information 
is increisingily becoming a 
valuable company asset aim is 
much sought after by the 
executive headhunters. He or 
she is a peculiar breed and has 
really only been spawned 
within the last decade. The 
species is also, a hybrid and 
marries the training of a 
management accountant with 
those of a technologist, or vice 
versa. 

The new executive is vital 
to modern industry and com- 
merce, claim tbfr organisers of 
the ICMA’s “Informed 
Manager” confer ence being 
held in London today, because 
good information can give a 
company competitive advan- 
tage. That advantage is ac- 
quired by using Information 
Technology (TT) — tdecom- 
mumcations and computers — 
to process and package the 
data skillfully. 

At the heart of the revolu- 
tion is the microcomputer and 
the diffusion of computing 
power. A decade ago the 
information used by manage- 
ment was largely generated by 
the data processing experts 
who operated the company 
mainframe machines. The in- 
formation was produced for 
management fay man a g e m ent 
in formation service depart- 
ments whose daily, weekly or 
monthly reports on sales and 
production were the mainstay 
of the management decision 


process. Now that has 
changed. 

The microcomputer has 
meant that a substantial num- 
ber of people who previously 
had no access to computing 
power have been encouraged 
to use iL A new kind of ability 
is no w required. Many manag- 
ers are stdl fearful of learning 
this skill- Some consider the 
machine s and the work they * 
process to be the responsibil- 
ities of their secretaries. These 
executives are however un- 
aware of foe importance of the - 
micro as a tool and how it can 
enhance - their ability to do 
theirjobs, The defegatesto the 
conference will be told this 
messag e. • 

Sophisticated telecommuni- 
cations links are another part 
of the information technology 
equation. Satellite and cable 
nciworks which connect conti- 
nents in seconds offer business 
users many facilities for voice 
and data carriage. 

The future needs of the 
modem business are informa- 
tion and decision making. The 
well informed manager will be 
numerate, aware ofthe techni- 
cal props he can use toenfl and 

process that information, and 
be an experienced decision 
maker. To compile the correct 
information for executive de- 
risions the type of data re- 
quired for intelligent 
selection by persons who un- 
derstand the decision-making 
processes.

obsolete but cumbersome and 
time consuming. The modern 
approach allows quick compi- 
lation and updating of infor- 
mation fi les (called databases 
or databanks) and the elec- 
tronic transmission of the 
same. 

The Government, through 
the Department of Trade and 
Industry, declared 1982 Infor- 
mation Technology Year. The 
idea behind the promotion 
was to increase the awareness 
of IT among British manage- 
ment. There was euphoria 
during the year with the 
months of promotion ending' 
with a speech from Mrs 
Margaret Thatcher. 

The paperless office was 
within sight, it was then 
claimed. Full electronic offices 
were to become common- 
place. the British managers 
were loltf. The year finished 
with as much of the political 
euphoria as when it began. It 
was claused that Britain's 
managers were for more aware 
of the opportunities available 
to them through the new 
technology, and that they bad 


taken a giant step during the 
year towards matching their 
competitors in the US and 
Japan. The reality was quite 
different. 

Today’s conference proves 
that a substantial number ’of 
British managers and accoun- 
tants are still not aware of the 
opportunities available and 
that their company offices are 
fax from being electronic. 
Many are still working with 
outdated technology and per- 
forming with outdated 
practices. 

The future strategy adopted 
by companies and their man- 
agers must, perceive the value 
or information. The Informa- 
tion Technology Advisory 
Panel (ITAP), the- recently 
.disbanded advisers to the 
Cabinet Office, about two 
years ago published a revolu- 
tionary document highlighting 
the value of information. The 
ITAP experts concluded that 
information is so important a 
commodity and is so crucial in 
making business decisions 
that it could be sold. Informa- 
tion is a new industry which

should be given encourage- 
ment to grow, ITAP claimed. 

A number of major sources 
of such information, like the 
British Libaiy, have respond- 
ed to that call and formed 
their own confederation. The 
group promotes information 
as an industry but also at- 
tempts to convert manage- 
ments who have not yet 
discovered the true worth of 
well processed data. 

The IT message is not 
confined to the office. Factory j 
automation is pan of the same | 
conversion. Computer aided i 
design techniques, robotics 
and computer aided manufac- 
ture are veiy important ingre- 
dients - in the new 
manufacturing climate of the 
1980s. 

Plant managers and accoun- 
tants who work in manufac- 
ture must be as aware of the 
versatility of these new tech- 
niques as they are of the costs 
of their installation and how 
their usage can be reflected on 
the price of a product or 
process.

Senior management must

The future strategy is dictat- 
ed by the principal industrial 
competitors - the US, France, 
Germany and Japan. British 
accountants and managers 
must have a high level of 
technical education, they must 
be numerate and decision 
makers. 

Japan and the United States 
excel in developing these skills 
among their managers and 
accountants: Managers and 
accountants have numerous 
opportunities to train or re- 
train to keep them up to date 
with the pace of information 
technology and how it can be 
harnessed for management’s , 
use. That requires a commit- 
ment which Britain has always 
been reluctant to make. How- |

for relaxation, reflecting the 
fashion for outdoor living. '

Tempting the Scots skipper back

times displays aggressive hab- 
its. Mr Ray Collier, who has 
studied the insect for many 
years, says that the Scottish 


By Hugh Clayton, Environment Correspondent 

By the time the chequered other the felling of traditional 
skipper had been given full broadleaved woodland to make 
legal protection against dfatnr- room for conifer plantations, 
bailee and destruction it had The best home for the 


and lethargic than their 
glfah cousins. 

He suggests that woodland 
arranged for the butterflies 
should contain tall plants that 
the male butterflies can use as 
“perches when defending 
territory." 

He does not claim that the 
difference in character be- 
tween the Scots and English 
accounts for their differing 
fates. The butterfly became 
extinct in England more than 
10 years ago, since when some 
40 breeding colonies have been 
found near the western coast of 
tbe Highland region 


disappeared from all its En- 
glish haunts. It was never 
common, but more than 100 
years ago was found in much of 
southern and eastern England. 
As late as 1961 it was de- 
scribed as being in no appar- 
ent danger id extinction. 

Mr Collier, reposal chief 
warden in north-west Scotland 
of the Nature Conservancy 
Council, the main wildlife 
quango, thinks it is time to try 
to persnade the butterfly to 
live in England again. He says 
in a report published by toe 
council that there are two main 
reasons for its decline. 


chequered skipper fa a broad 
woodland path which provides 
shelter and sun traps. The 
insect also needs a supply of 
toe right kinds of grass for its 
food. 

Mr Collier says that condi- 
tions have improved so orach 
in many of toe butterfly's 
former English haunts that it 
is worth considering a five- 
year programme to reintro- 
duce (weeding pairs caught In

OBITUARY 

DR C.H.V. SUTHERLAND 


Ashmolean authority on 
Roman coinage 


* \ 


\Ty 

i- 


Dc Humphrey Sutherland, 
ihe foremost Roman numis- 
matist of his time and the 
distinguished Keeper of the 
Heberden Coin Room, m the 
Ashmolean Museum. Oxford, 
from 1957 till his retirement 
in 1975. died on May 14. 

He built up the department 
into an internationally recog- 
nized centre of numismatic 
research and teaching, based 
on its collection whose rich- 
ness he did mud) to increase. 

Carol Humphrey Vivian 
Sutherland was born in 1908. 
arid educated at Westminster 
and Christ Church. Oxford. 
He joined the staff of the Coin 
Room in 1932. as part-time 
assistant to J. G. Milne. 

His first major numismatic 
interest was the coinage of 
Ancient Britain, on which be 
published, in 1937, his earliest 
substantial ^work. Coinage and 
Currency in Roman Britain. 
In this, and in many articles, 
he devoted particular atten- 
tion to the barbarous imita- 
tions of Roman coinage, of 
which he established the basic 
dassification. 

It was characteristic of the 
breadth of his interest that his 
next study should have been 
Anglo-Saxon Gold Coinage 
(1948). based on tbe unique 
Crondail hoard, which 
through his initiative was 
acquired for the Ashmolean in 
1944. 

There next appeared, in 
1951, Coinage in Roman Im- 
perial Policy. 31BC - 68AD. 
This valuable interpretative 
study of the contents of Ro- 
man coinage on political his- 
tory was the fruit of many 
years’ teaching and critical 
analysis. 

Since 1938, Sutherland had 
been a joint editor of the series 
of volumes of Roman Imperi- 
al Coinage. and from 1951 set 
himself to assemble the enor- 
mously varied and complicat- 
ed material for the period 294 
- 313AJ>, the result was the 


first systematic study of this 
coinage, which appeared as 
volume VI in 196?. 

In 1984 he published a 
monumental revised edition 
of the first volume, covering 
the period 31 BC - 69 a D, 
Other works included The 
Cisrdphori of Augustus <1970) 
and his Catalogue cf Coins of 
the Roman Empire in thik 
Ashmolean Museum. ( 1 97Sf 
with C. M. Kraav. 

Art in Coinage (1955) and 
Gold fl959L reflected hir in- 
terest in the aesthetic aspect of 
coinage (he was toe brother of 
the artist. Graham 
Sutherland). 

He was elected a student of 
Christ Church io 1945, and 
was their extremely active 
Curator of Pictures from 1947 
- 1955 and again from 1970 - 
1975. 

He was President of the 
Royal Numismatic Society 
from 1948 - 1 953 where he did 
much to revive tbe life of the 
society after the restrictions oU 
toe war. 

He was also President of the 
International Numismatic 
Commission from i960 - 
1973; he had been a member 
of toe Royal Mint Advisory 
Committee since 1963: and 
was a governor of Westmin- 
ster and Wallingford schools. 

Many honours came to him 
from tome and abroad. Ox- 
ford University conferred on 
him a DLitt in 1945; in 1970 
be was created a CBE and 
elected a Fellow of the British 
Academy. 

Academic pre-eminence 
was combined in Sutherland 
with humanity, kindness and ^ 
schoriariy humility. His col- 
leagues and generations of his 
pupils have cause to be grate- 
ful for his unfailingly, thought- 
ful and practical concern for 
their interests. 

He married, in 1933. Moni- 
ca La Fontaine, widow of 
Canon R. W. Porter, who'died 
in 1982

MR HENRY McILHENNY 


Mr Henry P. McHhenny, 
the philanthropist and collec- 
tor of nineteenth century 
French and English paintings, 
has died at toe age of 75. 

Bom in Philadelphia, he 
served the city's museum 
from 1935 to 1964, interrupt- 
ed only by a four-year absence 
during the Second World War 
for naval duty. 

His collection, begun while 
he was a student at Harvard, 
contained about 50 items, all 
considered museum .duality 
and among them works by 
Van Gogh, Matisse and 
Constable. 

George Melly writes: 

In his native Philadelphia, 
Henry Mdlbenny will be 
rightly honoured as a philan- 
thropist, a benefactor of the 
arts, a famous gardener and a 
distinguished public figure. 

Unlike so many rich men, 
he never confined himself to 
the company of those equally 


wealthy, nor did he choose to 
surround himself only by toe 
famous or distinguished. Any- 
one he took to was welcome, 
and while not uncritical and 
something of an inspired gos- 
sip. he remained profoundly 
loyal to those he considered to , 
be true friends. 

At Glenveagh Castle, in 
County Donegal he was the 
most generous and amusing 
host 

He was equally both delight- 
ed and touched to find himself 
a guest, however simple the 
entertainment on offer. 

To think of Henry is to 
recall instantly that look of a 
worldly but kindly prelate, 
that stately turn of toe head, 
that air of assumed outrage as 
he launched into some unlike- 
ly (allegedly true) Fiibankian 
tale prefaced by his inevitable 
cry: “My dear._“ 

It is painful to realise that 
we shall never bear it again.

THE ARTS 


* 


Television 

Friendly 

agents 

Miami Vice (BBCl) is direct- 
ed by Edward James Elmos, 
who also plays the part of 
Lieutenant Castillo. Like 
many cops - and more direc- 
tors - he is not a pretty sight. 
He has the face of a net 
tobacco leaf in search of a 
thigh to roll on. Towards the 
end of last eight's episode I 
saspected he had found it, in 
the sultry shape of a former 
KGB agent who had married 
bis best friend, and CIA 
renegade, Jack. 

Jack and be had been blown 
to smithereens In Vietnam 
without realising each haj 
survived. Pieced back togeth- 
er. theymust have both queued 
to see The Dear Boater, Apoc- 
alypse Nov and The Third 
Mao. Their subsequent behav- 
iour can be judged accordingly. 
Castillo adepts the pwitw 
role of doing things dutifully 
by die book. Jack goes off bis 
trolley in a way most useful to 
the CIA. “On this man's level, 
death is a profession”, rasps 
Castillo when he finds tint 
Jack has not only come back 
to life bnt also mocked op his 
drags-bust 

Shedding his detectives, 
who dress, shave and even act 
like a pop group (perhaps it is 
they who play the iasistmilf 
throbbing mask), Castillo is 
reunited with his long-lost pal 
- whom he then shoots. Not 
before Jack has tenderly 
asked him to look after his 
wife. At which point enter the 
KGB. It is harder to tell which 
is softer on top, the open 
Cadillac or its pansy-shirted 
driver. Surf. Needless to say, 
just as Snrf is a boot to shoot 
Castillo and his fostioas 
charge, the pop gronp down 
guitars and materialize from 1 
behind a palm tree. 

Castillo does not look too 
happy. In fact be looks as if he 
is about to go np in smoke. But 
be has given ns SO pulsating 
urinates, and some provocative 
thoughts on the nature of 
friendship. 

Meanwhile, in another ad- 
venture out east, Marco Polo 
(Channel 4) continues to re- 
semble a smiling Seventh Day 
Adventist who has stumbled 
on an ad for Cathay Pacific. 
The set and settings are 
marvellous, bnt the pace is 
static, the script abysmal and 
the editing as jerky as die 
acting. Among last night’s 
treats were a seduction scene 
by Leonard (Dr Spock) Nimoy 
ami a lecture by a wise man in 
a cave on yin and yang. 

Nicholas 

Shakespeare 



With John Dexter (left) planning to root himself in the commercial 
London sector, and Jonathan Miller (right) nominated as artistic 
director of the Old Vic, the shapers of two decades of theatrical 
history are starting to come in from the cold: Irving Wardle reports 

The West End at last prepares 
to gain a classical initiative 



Back in January I was bewailing the 
case of a lost generation of English 
directors. Thanks to ^ classic 
monopoly of the two subsidized 
companies, outside practitioners 
had been wiped off the scene; and 
artists like John Dexter, William 
Gaskin, Lindsay Anderson, Mi- 
chael Blakemore and Jonathan 
Miller, shapers of the theatrical 
history of the past two decades, had 
been left out in the cold. 
Blakem one's subsequent return to 
direct Made in Bangkok in no way 
offset the waste of so many 
company men with no company to 
lead. 

Now, however, h seems that the 
picture is changing. On May 26 
Vanessa Redgrave opens in a two- 
play season at the Haymarket 
(Antony and Cleopatra and The 
Taming of the Shrewd both pro- 
ductions launched by Toby Rob- 
ertson from his base at Theatr 
Clwyd. In mid-July Dexter laun- 
ches his New Theatre Company 
with a post-Ackroyd revival of 
Eliot's The Cocktail Party, and has 
plans to root himself in the West 
End until further notice. Immedi- 
ately on the horizon are his 
productions of Othello, Spender's 
version of Oedipus Rex and the 
English premiere of Edouard 


mgs us 

up to 1988, when Jonathan Miller 
lakes over as artistic director of the 
Old Vic. 

The prospect of two strongly led 
companies moving into the com- 
mercial field (with other leaders, 
like Mr Robertson, ready to follow 
suit) is vastly encouraging, and oot 
only from the viewpoint of the 
classical public. First, it shows the 
West End at last regaining the 
initiative and shaking off its igno- 
minious role as a dumping-ground 
for transfers, with house after 
house swamped in the ever-rising 
tide of musicals. Four of these 
over-priced monsters have opened 
within the past year and — with all 
respect to Chess — every one of 
them takes us closer to the dire 
condition of New York; it is good 
news that Knigfatsbridge Produc- 
tions (backing Dexter) and the 
Mervish family (backing Miller) 
are moving in to stop the rot. 

. It also amounts to an overdue 
vote of confidence in the theatre of 
the spoken word which, if it 
succeeds, will do much to redress 
the balance between subsidized 
and commercial management. At 
present, there is no consistency of 
programming outside the Royal 


Court and the two classical compa- 
nies; and it is beginning to seem a 
quixotic anachronism when An- 
thony Mingella or even Michael 
Frayn opens cold in the West End, 
while scripts as defective as Gztf* 
Puccini and After Aida are able to 
scramble on to the musical band- 
wagon. One result of this is a 
conspicuous misuse of perfor- 
mance talents. It is nice to find that 
so many good actors can sing quite 
well, but not at the price of having 
nothing to act Why should Denis 
Quiiley be delivering limp feed- 
lines in La Cage aux J biles or 
Bernard Lloyd be hovering mute 
over the stage of the Dominion 
listening to Cuff Richard? 

The answer, of course; is that 
even for actors as good as these a 
job is a job, and these are the shows 
that pay for the mortgage. Subsi- 
dized theatre can accommodate 
only a fraction of the available 
talent and bence is another aigu-' 
mem in favour of the alternative 
companies. Dexter, for instance, 
has settled on Othello to give his 
actors chances that are not to be 
found elsewhere. “If we don’t see 
Michael Gambon and Alec Mc- 
Cowen as Othello and Iago soon, 
we won't see them at alL" 

The same argument applies 


equally to the directors who, even 
if they were securely entrenched at 
the RSC or on the South Bank, 
might still be as immobilized as Mr 
Lloyd in bis inter-galactic throne. 
In his new book. Subsequent 
Performances (Gape, £15), Jona- 
than Miller describes his frustrat- 
ing experience of the National 
Theatre’s “committee approach": 
“I resigned eventually because the 
endless discussions about what we 
ought to be doing in the theatre 
were too boring." I quote a letter 
from another senior director who 
has turned his back on the institu- 
tional stage: "The essential require- 
ment is that directors should be 
prepared to do things ‘the Compa- 
ny way’ (remember Howto Succeed 
in Business? 'Executive policy is by 
me OK . . .’). Inevitably the domi- 
nating subsidized theatres have 
become camps of privilege whose 
conformist demands are hardly 
recognizable outside the pro- 
fession." 

These trade marks of servitude 
are invisible to me, but for direc- 
tors like my correspondent, who 
find institutional working condi- 
tions intolerable, there is now 
somewhere else to go. 

Whether the new companies will 


survive is another matter. It may 
be that there is no resisting the 
musical invasion; and, in any case; 
the record of director-led West End 
troupes — from Granville Barker to 
Lindsay Anderson — is not encour- 
aging. Bui at least those now 
resuming the struggle are in a 
position to profit from the mis- 
takes of the pasL 

There will, for instance, be no 
attempt to impose repertoire pro- 
gramming on the reluctant public. 
Dexter is adopting a flexible system 
based on an average six-month 
run: "The backers won’t get a 
return in less, and actors won't do 
more." However, productions will 
not be locked into this time-scale. 
"You can’t do Othello eight nights 
a week, so we'll probably be 
alternating it with the BourdeL The 
right to do repertoire is dictated by 
the play." 

Miller, similarly, is planning 
runs for the Old Vic’s subscription 
audience, though they will be a 
good deal shorter so as to include 
no fewer than six productions a 
year — some playing for up to to 
two months, other for no more 
than a fortnight. He took the job. 
he says, because it promised "the 
kind of freedom of repertory I’d 


had at the ENO: a place where I 
could have some kind of consis- 
tency". Broadly, this will mean an 
emphasis on European texts, and 
design, and clusters of plays (and 
scaled-down operas) which in some 
way cast light on each other. 

Having long ago televised Plato’s 
Symposium (craftily retitled The 
Drinking Party), he is also interest- 
ed in pursuing the theatrical possi- 
bilities of philosophic and scien- 
tific dialogues. Beyond that. Miller 
is not keen on disclosing specific 
ideas as they are likely to be “stolen 
by some bastard with no ideas of 
his own". 

Although Dexter's operation 
leans towards actors and Miller's 
towards projects, both will be 
aiming at something midway be- 
tween ad hoc and resident compa- 
ny casting. Miller envisages a 
"squad” of trusted colleagues who 
would frequently crop up without 
being tied down. Dexter describes 
his team as a “getting together of 
old lags" including Maggie Smith. 
Diana Rigg. Robert Eddison and 
some younger names. 

It sound quite a party; at which 
Mr Quiiley and Mr Lloyd might 
also have a good time.

When the secret lies in the casting 


Sons of Cain 
Wyndham’s 

Until now David William- 
son's plays have reached Lon- 
don only in subsidized 
productions with English 
casts. Unlike them, Sons of 
Cain is an all-Australian 
event, arriving at Wyndham’s 
as pan of an exchange deal 
between the Elizabethan The- 
atre Trust and the Theatre of 
Comedy (after last year's An- 
tipodean tour of Run For Your 
Wife). This is the first snch ^audience still reeling from-the 
exchange; and .it marks a bludgeoning of Pravda, the 


so much of his work relates to 
the immediate experience of 
his time and place. Sons of 
Cain is not as politically 
specific a piece as, say, Don's 
Party (which pinpointed the 
night of an election), but it is 
no less geared to the current 
national preoccupation; and, 
without actors like Max 
Cullen and Jon Ewing to 
anchor the piece in its precise 
locale, it might well come over 
as an old-fashioned newspaper 
melodrama. 

For any newsmen in the 


notable triumph for the 
commerical theatre with hon- 
ours divided between Ray 
Cooney's management and 
Australian and British Equity. 

In Williamson’s case, the 
mauer of casting is crucial as 


play offers soothing reassur- 
ance. Journalists, for from 
being pliable hacks, regain 
their dignity as courageous 
watchdogs of the truth, fear- 
lessly standing up to plutocrat- 
ic proprietors and zealously

Jankel Adler 

Gimpel fils 

Patrick Hayman 

Blond Fine Art 

Retrospectives of two artists who have spent 
long periods in relative obscurity are to be 
found in the West End at the moment. Jaakd 
Adler, who is on show with a selection of 
works from various periods of his career at 
Gimpel fils until June 21, was one of the large 
number of emigre artists from Central and 
Eastern Europe who settled in Britain before 
or during the Second World War. Some of his 
subject-matter is deliberately, ethically Jewish; 
some of his imagery and turns of style seem to 
come from the inescapable influence of 
Picasso. But the main impression these 
paintings, drawings and monoprints create is 
one of stubborn, unquestioning individuality. 

Since Adler's death in 1949, at the early age 
of 54. he has been recalled, if at all as a potent 
influence on British artists who have them- 
selves been the subject of revived interest, like 
Colquhoun and MacBride. But this year there 
has been a major retrospective in Germany 
and Israel accompanied by the publication of 
a hefty book, and it is good to have this small, 
titillating sample on view here, to remind us ot 
one of our more distinguished wartime guess. 

Patrick Hayman. a younger man. is now 71. 
and for the last 20 years or so has been living 
and working quietly in St Ives. He too has re- 
cently had a large retrospective, m Canada, 
and the exhibition at Blond Fine Ail until the 
end of the month is his first proper London 
show for some years. It covers the whole ot his 
career from 1944 up to date, and presents us 
with an amazingly consistent artist, happily 
careless of passing fashions. 

His work has developed, of course - in 
particular his colours have got brighter and 



Patrick Hayman’s mixture of sadness and 
pawky humour: The Family in Dark Clothes 

more vivid — but the recurrent images of 
people .set against a sea or a bare landscape, 
with their odd mixture of sadness and pawky 
humour, are all his own. And. since all things 
come to him who waits, be now looks far more 
fashionable than at any time in the past: if one 
did not know different, one would swear that 
be was a contemporary of other artists shown 
by this gallery, such as Jock MacFadyen or 
Timothy Hyman. Not that feshionabfiity in 
itself matters. But a context is often useful to 
grasp at oddity, and Hayman is odd enough for 
a handle to help.

Linda Christmas (May 14) 
described enough of William- 
son V troubles with" his libel 
lawyers to account for the 
shortage of political detail in 
the play. But the fact remains 
that, without naming names 
and authenticating cases, the 
narrative does take on the 
character of a harmless yarn 
when viewed at this distance 
from its own territory. 

Also, the plot has been 
assembled with a kind of 
professional expertise that 
blunts its polemical edge. 
Kevin's three reporters, for 
instance, serve more to spread 
the interest than to intensify 
the theme. One is a theorizing 
feminist, one a youthful moral . 
bigot and one a wily old hack 
who is waiting to get her feet 
under Kevin's desk. 

The parts are well played 
(particularly by Anna Volska 
as the would-be editor) and it 
is rhanks to this that their 
scenes amount to something 
more pointed than entertain- 
ment, and give full force to the 
argument against toppling one 
government only to replaw it 
with something worse. 


The main weight of John 
Noble's production is carried 
by Mr Cullen, who transforms 
a stereotype of the indestructi- 
ble old newshound into some- 
thing powerfully individ- 
ualized and very funny. A 
crumpled chain-smoking 
wreck with the face of a’ 
superannuated prize-fighter, 
he has a speed of response, an 
access to genuine indignation 
and a range of anguished self- 
mockery that ignites both the 
characierand the events. He is 
pugilistically partnered by Mr 
Ewing and Donald MacDon- 
aJdro a series of fierce 
encounters that retain lucidity 
in the midst of the office 
carnage.

Strindberg wrote this, his per- 
sonal favourite play, in the 
space of two weeks in 1888, 
soon after completing Miss 
JUlie. The real wonder sug- 
gested by Michael Meyer's 
translation (updated Grom 
Caspar Wrede’s celebrated 
1959 production) is that it 
look him so long. 

The work’s emotional impe- 
tus sprang directly from the 
playwright's fraught relations 
with his wife and her first 
husband Here we find the 
author split into two. some- 
what idealized, personalities: 
the crippled young artist Adolf 
who is despairingly infatuated 
with his tyrannical wife Tekla; 



Jon Ewing (left) and Max Cullen anchoring Sons of Coin 
firmly in its precise locale 


and her former husband Gus- 
tav who poisons the unstable 
booby against her but foils to 
reclaim her affections. 

Divided by means of clum- 
sy exits into three two- 
handers, each of about half an 
hour’s length, the text presents 
a suite of duets for three 
players. This organization has 
enabled the absent player to 
direct the others, with the 
"collaboration" of Messrs 
Wrede and Meyer. Thus we 
have Suzanne Bertish direct- 
ing Jonathan Kent and Ian 
McDiarmid in a sequence 
which sounds like a man 
talking to himself. Mr Me- 
Diarmid directing Mr Kent 
and Miss Bertish (which does 
indeed sound like a man 
talking to his wife) and lastly 
Mr Kent directing his col- 


leagues in what sounds like the 
way a man would like to talk 
to his wife. - 
Despite Mr McDiarmid’s 
fitfully engaging imperson- 
ation of the cryptic Gustav 
there is little indication in this 
dull, static production that the 
actors are playing characters 
rather than actors. When, after 
having his jealousy fired fora 
good 20 minutes by Gustav. 
Adolfburst5 out “I must know 
the truth!" his manner sug- 
gests nothing of the kind. And 
when, resisting her former 
husband’s advances, Tekla ex- 
claims “Now we must say 
goodbye foreverf* there is 
more than a hint of send-up in 
her delivery. The play is billed 
as a tragi -comedy and fails on 
both counts.

Philharmonia/ 
Rattle 
Festival Hall/ 

Radio 3 

Simon Rattle’s series “Apres 
1'AprCs-midi" has been mar- 
vellously enriching, with the 
standards of the Philharmonia 
Orchestra's performances 
over the fortnight remaining 
amazingly high, and. perhaps 
most warming of all, near- 
capacity audiences greeting 
music by the likes of Boulez 
and Messiaen with something 
like rapture. And it came to a 
suitably glorious _ dose on 
Monday night, with a pro- 
gramme containing music sa- 
cred and romantic and, in 
Ravel’s complete Daphnis et 
Chloi. a combination of both. 

First came the tragically 
romantic in the form of 
Poulenc's La Voix humaine of 
1959, which you might de- 
scribe as an interrupted dia- 
logue for solo voice, since the 
audible action takes place at 
one end of a telephone tine 
bedevilled by crossed wires. 
Vou might also describe it as a 
work which brings Tristan- 
like emotions, if onesided 
ones, to bear upon a situation 
of realism, for what surprises 
here is the sheer intensity of 
the nameless heroine’s trage- 
dy. Elisabeth Sdderstr&m was 
perfectly cast — light though 
malleable in voice and thor- 
oughly convincing in her 
acting. 

Rattle could scarcely have 
chosen a work of greater 
contrast to follow this than 
Messiaen’s supremely confi- 
dent avowal of faith, Et 
Exspecto Resurrect ionem 
Mortuorurrr, how strange to 
realize it was composed in the 
same country and only five 


years later. Its great blocks of 
sound were here delivered 
with an imposing solidity, but 
paradoxically they also ach- 
ieved an unmistakably ethere- 
al quality. 

The low brass processional 
in the first section, for exam- 
ple, was less of a desperate cry 
than an inevitable climb from 
the abyss, while the fourth 
section’s recurring tam-tam 
and gong strokes were posi- 
tively radiant and the final 
movement, with its raw me- 
tallic percussion reaching a 
deafening crescendo, was ut- 
terly ecstatic. 

Stirring this may have been, 
but it was only appropriate 
that Rattle should close the 
series with the heavily-scented 
symphonic pastoral idyll of 
the Ravel. As you would 
expect of a score that he 
obviously adores, it emerged 
resplendent, with the Phil- 
harmonics strings making 
some luscious sounds and the 
brass, woodwind and percus- 
sion equally enraptured by the 
music. It has indeed been a 
memorable fortnight

Boris Berman 
St JohiTs/Radio 3 

The pleasure of hearing Boris 
Berman striding through war- 
time Shostakovich and Pro- 
kofiev piano sonatas lay 
principally in knowing that 
nothing here was being exag- 
gerated. nothing taken away. 
The emigre Russian rests his 
case on consummate technical 
mastery, rounded rather than 
explosive musicianship and 
unerringly apt observance of 
the composers' markings. 
Such music bulges with com- 
plex, sometimes enigmatic 
webs of emotion. If Berman 
was temperamentally dian- 


*Kisr 


“’sss; 


dined to add his own personal 
gloss, it was hardly missed. 

Shostakovich's Sonata No 2 
is not often performed, per- 
haps because its long first 
movement seems rather pre- 
cariously built upon banal 
themes and long sections of 
arid counterpoint. But Ber- 
man's approach, sweeping im- 
pulsively through the figur- 
ation of the opening, strong- 
boned but never strident in 
the march sections, brought 
the best from it. 

In the Largo one relished 
the tinge of the sinister that 
crept into the rhapsody as 
Berman articulated the deep, 
clustered left-hand chords 
with sudden clipped urgency. 
Moreover he perfectly cap- 
tured the “double echo" of the 
closing pages: the fanfares 
high in the right hand repeated 
with muted tone lower down, 
then hushed into sepulchral 
gloom in the bass. 

It was his handling of the 
finale, however, that seemed 
most assured. The opening, 
one of Shostakovich’s mean- 
dering, sparsely-accompanied 
right-hand melodies, was kept 
cool, but subsequently Ber- 
man generated enormous ex- 
citement, particularly by sha- 
ding his mercurial, staccato 
fingerwork so resourcefully. 

Thai same jaunty delinea- 
tion of quick figuration car- 
ried him triumphantly 
through the first movement of 
Prokofiev’s much better- 
known Sonata No 7 too, and 
the finale’s fisty chordal writ- 
ing and testing repeated-note 
passages were accomplished 
in a ferocious, stabbing man- 
ner that was entirely appropri- 
ate. Yet these same hands had 
coaxed a ravishing middle- 
register warmth, without an 
ounce of indulgence, in the 
celebrated purple passages of! 
the Andante caloroso.

Faction war In squatter camp 

More deaths as ‘Comrades’ 


do battle with ‘Fathers’ 


From Michael Hornsby, Johannesburg 

The discovery yesterday of morning, and officials of the youngsters in the camp, known 

Western Cape Development o,? — • . 


two more bodies in the Cross- 
roads black squatter camp 
outside Cape Town brought 
the number of people kilted in 
violence between warring fac- 
tions there to 16. Many others 
have been injured, and thou- 
sands are homeless. 

Meanwhile, in Kwamashu, a 
black township outside Dur- 
ban, the police reported the 
deaths of six men believed to 
be members of a vigilante 
group opposed to school boy- 
cotts and political demonstra- 
tions. The battered bodies of 
three of the men were found on 
a school sports ground. 

Of the remaining three, one 
was reported to have been 
stabbed, while the other two 
were apparently “necklaced" 
— burnt to death by means of a 
petrol-filled robber tyre placed 
round the victim's neck and set 
alight. 

In Crossroads, renewed 
lighting broke out yesterday 


Board, which administers 
black settlements in the area, 
had to be evacuated from their 
o Rices in the nearby Nyanga 
township. 

Nearly 900 shacks in the 
sprawling settlement are re- 
ported to have been destroyed 
in the lighting, in which 
weapons have ranged from 
knives and axes to rifles, and a 
huge relief operation was be- 
ing mounted yesterday to 
bring food, blankets and cloth- 
ing to those without shelter, 
“It's impossible to know 
how many people need help. 
It's chaos out there, it's war," 
a Red Cross official said. 

The police denied allega- 
tions that they had stood by 
while the battles raged. 

The fighting seems to be a 
particularly savage outbreak 
of tension that has been 
simmering for a long time 
between politically militant 


and a 


as “The Comrades 
conservative older group 
called “The Fathers", which 
has tried to drive ont anti- 
apartheid activists. 

Crossroads has existed for 
more than 10 years, growing 
steadily in size despite repeat- 
ed attempts by the authorities 
to raze it and move its inhabit- 
ants back to the impoverished 
“homelands" of the Trans kei 
and the Ciskei, from which 
they were driven by lack of 
work. 

Last year, the Government 
agreed to build permanent 
housing on part of the camp 
site and to allow a proportion 
of its estimated 70,000 inhab- 
itants to stay there. The rest 
were to be moved in stages to 
the new black township of 
Khayelitsha some miles away. 

Migrants from both home- 
lands have continued to flood 
in, however, and the camp 
remains as big as it ever was. 


Police given 3,200 
extra recruits 

By Philip Webster, Political Reporter 


Police manpower is to be 
increased bv 1.200 in London 
and 2,000 in the provinces. Mr 
Douglas Hurd, the Home 
Secretary, announced 
yesterday. 

The London figure com- 
pares with 3.000 requested by 
Sir Kenneth Newman, the 
Metropolitan Police Commis- 
sioner. last year. But the 
Home Office said last night 
that the increase in the Lon- 
don operational strength 
would be about 1.800 through 
an increase in civilian staff, 
releasing 400 officers for tradi- 
tional policing duties, and 
force reorganization which 
will free another 200 officers. 

The increase, to be phased 
over the next four years, 
follows the review of London 
and provincial manpower 
needs after last autumn’s in- 
ner city disturbances. 

In the provinces, the Home 
Office said, operational 
strength will increase by more 
than 2,600. Chief constables 


will be allowed to recruit 
about 2,000 extra officers. An 
increase of some 1,350 in 
civilian manpower will release 
about 650 police officers for 
operational duty. 

Mr Hurd, in a Commons 
written reply, said that police 
strength in England and Wales 
had risen by 9,355 since May, 
1979; total strength, including 
civilians, had risen by 14,076 
over the same period. 

He said that he was pre- 
pared to approve 430 of the 
new provincial posts this fi- 
nancial year. The remainder 
would be phased over the next 
few years. 

Mr Hurd said that he ex- 
pected to see a steady increase 
in officers on foot patrol 
“deterring the criminal and 
the hooligan and protecting 
and reassuring the citizen." 
He promised reinforcement of 
specialized units, including 
increases for the anti-terrorist 
work of the Metropolitan 
Police Special Branch. 


KGB thwarts anti-nuclear 
demonstration in Moscow 


From Christopher Walker, Moscow 


The nearest that the Soviet 
Union is likely to get to a 
demonstration against nuclear 
energy took place on one of 
Moscow's busiest streets yes- 
terday, when large groups of 
KGB secret policemen aad 
militia and smaller numbers 
of Western diplomats and 
reporters gathered at the ap- 
pointed hour of 6 pm. 


Ail had been tipped off that 
the Trust Group for Peace, an 
ad-hoc collection of academ- 
ics and other dissident think- 
ers, was about to launch a 
campaign to collect signatures 
for an anti-nuclear petition to 
hand in to the Kremlin in the 
wake of the Chernobyl nuclear 
disaster.

THE TIMES INFORMATION SERVICE 


But the KGB had done its 
homework well: at least 30 
buriy-looking men with small, 
rolled umbrellas and expres- 
sionless faces were already 
ringing the portico of the 
famous Vachtangova Theatre, 
where the petitioners had let it 


be known that they would be 
gathering. 

Other protesters were gath- 
ered in groups of three on 
various corners. 

As it was. no Soviet protest- 
er managed to penetrate the 
security cordon and the rush- 
hour shoppers were left to 
puzzle out why two KGB 
photographers were busy 
photographing the faces of 
Westerners standing opposite 
the theatre to witness an event 
the authorities were deter- 
mined would not take place. 

Diplomats from the United 
States and Canadian embas- 
sies were also present in an 
attempt to gauge the public 
mood. At one point, a uni- 
formed militiamen came to 
question correspondents, but 
apparently confident that the 
precautions already taken 
would prevent a Chernobyl 
protest, left them alone in the 
evening drizzle. 

Eventually, news that the 


planned protest bad been 
aborted came from two Rus- 
sian girls who managed to pa« 
on the information by word of 
mouth that the would-be peti- 
tioners — whose number was 
never clear — had either been 
prevented from leaving their 
homes or arrested en route. 


A Western observer re- 
marked: “The fact that these 
people were prepared to go 
this far to attempt a demon- 
stration is an indication that 
Chernobyl has had its effect 
on opinion here. But as is so 
often the case, there is no way 
of judging to what extent."

Ceasefire in sugar battle 
as bids are referred 


By Michael Prest, Financial Correspondent 


A ceasefire was called yes- 
terday in the battle for control 
of British Sugar Corporation 
after Mr Paul Channon. the 
Trade and Industry Secretary, 
agreed to refer to the Monopo- 
lies and Mergers Commission 
the Tate & Lyle and 
Hillsdown Holdings bids for 
S&W Berisford, which owns 
British Sugar. 

Whitehall sources said that 
the Office, of Fair Trading had 
recommended a reference to 
the commission on the 
grounds that a successful bid 
for British Sugar by Tate 
would give Tale more than 90 
per cent of the British refined 
sugar market. 

The bid by Hillsdown, a 
food and manufacturing 
group, was referred because 
British Sugar’s dominant posi- 
tion in the market meant that 
any change in its ownership 
raised questions of national 
interest. 

These include relations with 
the European Economic Com- 
munity, which sets sugar 


pnees for farmers and refiners, 
and with Ihe African, Caribbe- 
an and Pacific countries which 
supply the cane sugar refined 
by Tate. British Sugar refines 
beet sugar. 

But industry sources point- 
ed out that the Government 
was effectively using the Mo- 
nopolies and Mergers Com- 
mission as a surrogate Royal 
Commission to define a na- 
tional sugar policy for an 
international industry which 
enjoys free trade within the 
Common Market. 

Mr James Kerr-Muir. fi- 
nance director of Tate which 
had pressed for equal treat- 
ment of the bids for Berisford. 
said he would have preferred 
that both bids bad been al- 
lowed to proceed. But he said: 
“Whatever Hillsdown does, 
we have to push ahead.” 

The Tate argument is that it 
makes little sense to view a 
monopoly of sugar refining in 
Britain, in an exclusively na- 
tional context when refined 
sugar can move freely within 



Ephraim M argufies: 
dominant market position 

the Common Market. The 
Tate case challenges the na- 
tional basis of monopolies 
policy. 

For Hillsdown. Mr Harry 
Solomon, joint chairman, 
said: “We are very upset and 
disappointed. It seems to go 
against all the principles on 
which they make judgments. 
We will have to sit back and 
take a look at it. From 


Hillsdown’s point of view, 
we’d never put ourselves in a 
situation where we had to go 
ahead with a hid.” 

British Sugar and Tate each 
have roughly half of the 
annual 2.1 million tonne Brit- 
ish market for refined sugar, 
but the much higher refining 
profits on beet sugar allowed 
under the EEC sugar regime 
make British Sugar the market 
leader. 

Tate has hinted that it will 
pull out of cane sugar refining 
if it cannot make more money 
from the business. 

The struggle for British 
Sugar began early in the year 
when tbc Italian group 
Femizzi built up a 9 per cent 
stake, taking advantage of the 
difficulties into which S&W 
Berisford. led by Mr Ephraim 
Margulies. had fallen. 

Tate and Hillsdown subse- 
quently built up similar 
stakes. Ferruzzi withdrew, and 
Hillsdown made a £430 mil- 
lion all-share offer while Tate 
bid £478 million in shares and 
cash. 


3.7% increase in US output 
is highest for 12 months 


By Mohs in Ali and Richard Thomson 


Washington — The United 
States gross national product 
(GNP). after removing the im- 
pact of inflation, unexpectedly 
grew at a seasonally adjusted 
annual rate of 3.7 per cent in 
the first three months of this 
year, the Commerce Depart- 
ment announced yesterday. 

This increase of the GNP — 
the broadest measure of the 
nation's output of goods and 
services — is the largest since 
the first quarter of 1985. It is 
stronger than the 3.2 per cent 
pace the department estimat- 
ed a month ago. 

In the first quarter of 1985 
real GNP also grew at a 3.7 per 
cent annual rate. The last time 
real GNP rose at a fester rate 
was in the second quarter of 
1984. when it expanded at a 
5.1 per cent rate. 

The Iastest figures show the 
US economy grew fester in the 


first quarter than many ex- 
perts had forecast. Most anal- 
ysts had expected the first 
quarter GNP figure to be re- 
vised downward to between 
2.5 'per cent and 3.0 per cent. 

The surprise upward, revi- 
sion of the previous estimate 
is likely to case pressure on the- 
Federal Reserve Board to 
make further cuts in the key 
discount rate, financial "ob- 
servers said. 

The dollar, which had been 
trading nervously, moved up 
after the GNP figures were re- 
leased. recovering the losses 
made the previous day. It rose 
two pfennigs against the mark 
to DM2.2450 before closing in 
London at DM22385. It also 
made small gains against the 
yen and dealers said the dollar 
was expected to remain strong 

After inflation adjustment 
the GNP rose 532.7 billion in 


the period from January to 
March to a rate of S3.623 
billion - about S4 billion 
more than previously estimat- 
ed. A variety of components 
contributed to the upward 
revision in the GNP.. 

Real Federal government 
purchases of goods and ser- 
vices decreased by S3 billion 
less than previously estimated 
at $29.3 billion. Net exports 
were revised down $4.3 billion 
to $10.5 billion and invento- 
ries revised up $7 billion. 

Sterling held up strongly 
despite the dollar's rise, fol- 
lowing an increase in oil prices 
— with Brent June trading up 
to 15.30 yesterday - and 
Monday's encouraging figures 
on the Public Sector Borrow- 
ing Requirement. The pound 
finished... .in London at 
$1.5205, up from £1.5185 the 
previous day. 


Asthma drug approval 
set to boost Fisons 

By Teresa Poole 

Fisons. the phamaceuiicals nedocnomil will contribute 


and scientific instruments 
group, has won regulatory 
approval for its new asthma 
drug. 

Mr John Kerridge, chair- 
man. told the company’s an- 
nual meeting yesterday that 
nedoeromil sodium, which 
has won the United Kingdom 
clearance and is marketed 
under the name Tilade.’will be 
launched this autumn in 
Britain. 

The drug is used in the 
treatment of a broad range of 
respiratory and related dis- 
eases and is expected to have a 
significant impact on the 
company's profitability. 

Mr lan White, pharmaceuti- 
cals analyst at W Green well, 
the stockbroker, forecasts that 


profits of £30 million a year in 
five years. In 1985 Fison’s 
pharmaceuticals division 
made profits of £39 million, 
compared with group pretax 
profit of £72 million. 

Application for the registra- 
tion of nedoeromil has also 
been made in Germany, Swit- 
zerland and the Netherlands. 

Mr Kerridge said that the 
opening months of this year 
had shown a “pleasing 
continuation" of the 
company’s growth pattern. 

He announced that Sir Phil- 
ip Harris, chairman of Harris 
Queensway. is to join the 
board as a non-executive di- 
rector next month. 

Fisons shares gained 3p to 
578p yesterday. 


£15m Sainsbury bonus 

By Our City Staff 


Good fiill-year results at J 
Sainsbury, the supermarket 
group, mean more than 
30.000 employees will receive 
£15.8 million from profit shar- 
ing — equivalent to a month's, 
pay. The scheme is linked to 
the company's performance. 

When it makes more than a 
25 per cent margin on sales, 
IS per cent of the excess goes 
into a profit-sharing fund. 
Since the scheme started in 
1979 Sainsbury has never 
made less than a 3.16 percent 
margin, and last year rt was a 
record 5.45 per cent

USM setback 

Mrs Fields 
issue flops 

By Alison Sadie 
The offer for sale of Mrs 
Fields, the American “cookie” 
company, has flopped. Appli- 
cations for jnst under 16 per 
cent of the 29.7 milJion shares 
were received. The 84 per cent 
will be taken np by sub- 
nnderwriters. 

Mrs Fields, the Unlisted 
Securities Market's biggest 
Dotation, is capitalized at £210 
million. 

The day after the company, 
whose president is Mrs 
Debbie Fields, announced its 
flotation plans. National 
Westminster Bank launched 
its record £714 million rights 
issue, helping depress the 
already jittery stock market 
The sponsors to the issue 
are J Henry Schroder Wagg, 
the British merchant bank, 
and Goldman Sachs, the 
American investment bank. 
Cazenove is the broker. 

Schroder last night ex- 
pressed disappointment at tbe 
low level of applications, bat 
said that Mrs Fields was still 
an excellent company. . 


‘Cheaper 
coal deal 9 
for CEGB 

By Edward Townsend 

Industrial Correspondent 

British Coal, the former 
National Coal Board, is set to 
announce reductions of up to 
a third in the price of coal to 
power stations, slicing as 
much as £300 million from the 
electricity industry's annual 
bill. 

The Central Electricity 
Generating Board is paying 
about £45 a tonne for its coal 
and every £] reduction wrung 
from the coal board is the 
equivalent to a 1 per cent cut 
in average electricity bills. 

The coal industry has been 
under increasing pressure to 
cut its rates in the wake of the 
collapse in world oil prices. 

The latest five-year deal, to 
be announced soon, is an 
attempt to dissuade the CEGB 
from buying cheaper imported 
coal. 

Price cuts to the consumer 
of between 6 percent and 7 per 
cent are estimated by the 
CEGB to be possible if it were 
to increase imports from the 
1982-83 level of 1 million 
tonnes to 30 million tonnes a 
year. 

Reports of the new deal, 
said by British CoaJ yesterday 
to be “purely speculation", 
suggest that the price of the 
bulk of power station deliver- 
ies — about 50 million tonnes 
— are to reflea average pro- 
duction costs. 

This is a reduction from the 
65 million tonnes delivered at 
pit head production prices last 
year. 

The price of two more 
tranches of at least 10 million 
tonnes each is expected to be 
in line with oil prices and 
imported coal. 


Executive Editor Kenneth Fleet 

BA hopes fly into 
more turbulence 


Lord King was guessing yesterday that 
British Airways would coast down the 
runway towards flotation at some 
stage between November and next 
February. It would be nice to agree 
with Lord King.- whose chairmanship 
has been devoted to seeing the state 
airline converted to the private sector, 
but tbe long-delayed privatization has 
been plagued by bad luck for so long 
that it is beginning to seem doomed. 

Yesterday’s announcement of 
mildly disappointing pretax profits for 
the year to the end of March proved 
the occasion for putting a brave face 
on the latest blow to airline's 
privatization hopes — the severe 
downturn in North Atlantic traffic in 
the wake of the Libyan raids and the 
bomb blast at BA's Oxford Street 
offices. 

Present trends. Lord King said, 
showed an improvement in forward 
bookings from the low levels in the 
three weeks immediately following 
the Libyan raid. Last week, the airline 
carried only 3 per cent fewer pas- 
sengers on the routes than the same 
time last year, compared with 7 per 
cent fewer the week before. Bookings 
were running at about two-thirds of 
their normal level for this time of 
year, having been a lot lower and were 
continuing to improve. 

There is good reason. Lord King 
believes, for thinking that once the 
mists have cleared, the next few 
months will be seen as no more than 
an isolated period where revenues and 
profits were adversely affected by 
extraordinary circumstances. British 
Airways' employees will be praying he 
is right. 

A review of costs and capital 
expenditure is under way and, unless 
the present marketing drive on both 
sides of the Atlantic bears fruit 
further cuts in the airline’s 38,000 
work-force look inevitable. 

There have already been selective 
cuts on North Altantic scheduled 
flights and the extra recruitment of 
1 ,500 temporary staff for the summer 
season has been cancelled. 

Whatever the extent of any upturn 
later in the year, profits are bound to 
suffer a severe setback from the £183 
million pretax announced yesterday. 
That result compared with £202 
million for the year to end of March, 
1985 before allowing for the costs of 
settling post-Laker lawsuits, or £168 
million after charging these. 

If the Government does still decide 
to go for a winter flotation — once the 
spectre of residual post-Laker litiga- 
tion has been exorcised and the 
capacity annexe to Bermuda II is 
renegotiated — it will have to scale 
down previous estimates of how 
much BA will fetch. British Airways, 
too, may have to rest content with a 
rather smaller amount of new money 
than it might once have hoped to raise 
during a £1 billion-plus sale. 

British Caledonian has been hit 
even harder by North Atlantic prob- 
lems than BA. Merger talks with 
Harry Goodman's International Lei- 
sure holiday tour group have become 
bogged down over price. Sir Adam 
Thomson, chairman and creator of 
Britain's only other significant airline. 


believes ii is worth £150 million 
despite the difficulties and 3i (Inves- 
tors in Industry), which owns 42 per 
cent of the airline, seems prepared to 
back him. 

Even if Sir Adam agreed with the 
principle of a merger, which he 
apparently does not. the signs are not 
good for the bid of rather less than 
£100 million that Mr Goodman has 
asked BCal to consider at its board 
meeting tomorrow. 

Pedigree defence 

The quest by London International 
for the Wedgwood pottery and fine 
china group, which moved to a higher 
level yesterday with the issue of 
Wedgwood's defence document, is a 
nice encapsulation of the City’s 
attitude towards bids and mergers. 

In one corner, the patrician Sir 
Arthur Bryan stands on the soapbox 
to proclaim that Wedgwood’s 228- 
year pedigree and its strong recent 
profits growth and leadership in a 
number of important markets means 
it has nothing to gain from LI. a 
contraceptive to photographic 
processing group which entered the 
fine china market only 1 S months ago 
with the purchase of Royal Worcester 
Spode. In the other comer, Li's 
aggressive chief executive. Mr Alan 
Woltz. maintains that his brand of 
management and consumer market- 
ing skills, which have transformed LI 
since he stepped in seven years ago, is 
badly needed at Wedgwood. 

In Sir Arthur's eyes the success of 
the LI bid will be decided by the 
number of “quick buck" investors in 
Wedgwood against those who take the 
longer-term view necessary to ensure 
success in his field. As recent takeover 
battles have shown, the numbers in 
the former camp may well be a dying 
breed in the City. Already Warburg 
Investment has sold a 9.99 per cent 
stake in Wedgwood to LI and prom- 
ised a further 14.9 per cent if nobody 
comes in with a higher offer. With that 
example, other institutional investors 
in Wedgwood might be tempted to 
follow suit. 

It would be a shame if Wedgwood's 
other shareholders were to desert 
without giving the matter serious 
consideration. The company's record 
since the traumatic days of the $2.40 
pound in the early 1980s has been a 
good one. although Li’s concern over 
its qualified accounts deserves to be 
noted. For the year ended in March 
pretax profits should show an 
improvement of at least 12 per cent, 
although Sir Arthur is saving this 
piece of ammunition until it is 
needed. Mr Woltz claims that his 
management strategy has almost tre- 
bled profits at Royal Worcester since 
he took over 

Investors are still belling against Mr 
Woltz. Wedgwood shares stand about 
30p ahead of Li's all-paper offer, 
which could slip further in a falling 
market. Sir Arthur maintains he does 
not want LI at any price, but a higher 
offer with a cash alternative could well 
see the so-called “fast buck” mer- 
chants turning against him. 


Shareholders urged to 
block THF proposal 

By Cliff Feltnam 


The Savoy Hotel group is 
urging shareholders to rejert a 
move by Trusthouse Forte to 
block the issue of new shares 
at its annual meeting next 
week. 

Trusthouse Forte- is con- 
cerned that if Savoy issues 
more high voting B shares^ the 
voting power of ordinary 
shareholders could be diluted 
by a third. 

But in a leuer to all share- 
holders yesterday. Mr Giles 
Shepard, managing director of 
the Savoy, says the directors' 
policy is “not to let the suc- 
cessful development of the 
business be affected by the 
ambitions ofTrusthouse Forte 
and the large shareholding 
they have built up”. 

Trusthouse is claiming that 
in normal circumstances the 
issue of more shares would not 


make any difference. It owns 
69 per cent of the Savoy 
equity, but because there are 
two classes of shares it con- 
trols only 42 per cent 

Mr Shepard says the resolu- 
tion to be proposed at the 
meeting will enable the direct- 
ors to allot up to £500,000 of 
new shares. 

“ This power gives a valu- 
able flexibility if for instance 
an opportunity should arise to 
acquire a further hotel that 
would benefit the business. It 
is understandable that Trust- 
house Forte should not want 
any more shares in the compa- 
ny to be issued.” he said. 

But Mr Shepard has not 
responded to al legations that a 
concert party arrangement 
may exist between certain 
Savoy directors and charitable 
trusts 


Banks rush for morning paper 


The arguments have already 
begun over who was first into 
the new sterling commercial 
paper market which opened 
yesterday as bankers burned 
the midnight oil to complete 
deals before any of the opposi- 
tion. Even before the sun rose 
telephones were buzzing and 
deals were being struck. 

SG Warburg was claiming 
to have beaten everyone else 
to the starting post, selling 
around £5 million of paper 
each for PHH. the US compa- 
ny. and Redland first thing 

yesterday morning after 
spending! most .of the night, 
preparing the necessary 
paperwork. 

County Bank: another des- 
ignated dealer in the Redland 
paper, also sold several mil- 
lion pounds worth yesterday 
morning. 

But Citicorp thought it had 
gone one better by selling 


By Richard Thomson, Banking Correspondent 




around £10 million of paper 
for Hawley Group “a few 
minutes after midnight”, ac- 
cording to Mr Ralph Doubell 
of the bank's commercial 
paper team. 

The commercial paper mar- 
ket is designed to allow com- 
panies to issue paper under 
their own name of maturities 
less than a year. The populari- 
ty of a parrallel market in the 
US is. unquestionable, with 
paper worth something in the 
region of $350 billion current- 
ly in issue. 

The attraction of commer- 
cial paper is partly in the 
flexibility of maturities. The 
Redland’ paper, for example, 
went out at maturities of 10 to 
27 days which would have 
' been difficult, if not impossi- 
ble, to get in the bill market 

Price also plays a part 
According to Warburg. 
■Redland and PHH ended up 




borrowing at the London in- 
terbank mean rate which, it 
claimed, was cheaper than 
borrowing in the bill markeL 

Citicorp, on the other hand, 
thought that borrowing 
through acceptances was still a 
shade cheaper but Hawley was 
willing to pay a little extra to 
be the first into the new 
markeL 

So fer, the omens for the US 
market seem good Mr Keith 
Elliott an assistant director of 
Warburg, said: “We are de- 
lighted at the way the market 
has opened. It all went very 
smoothly.” Mr Doubell said 
that he was surprised at the 
strength of demand from 
investors. 

Warburg sold both the PHH 
and the Redland paper to 
British corporate investors. 
Citicorp said that it had 
unloaded Hawley's paper to 
corporate and institutional in- 




vestors both in Britain and 

overseas. 

If the sleepless Citicorp 
salesmen were on the phone al 
1201 am the assumption 
must be that they were finding 
at least some of the demand in 
the Far East 

Citicorp has clearly decided 
that there is no risk in selling 
paper abroad even though 
promissed changes to the 
Companies Act — such as the 
rules . on publishing 
prospeauses — have not yet 
been made. 

Not everyone is so sure, 
however. Some banks have 
decided to play safe and limit 
sales to United Kingdom in- 
vestors. “Until the changes are 
made you have to be very 
careful to whom you sell," 
said one market operator. 

As in most securities mar- 
kets. the deals struck are 
booked on the telephone.

STOCK MARKET REPORT 


Brighter economic outlook 



: Stock markets made further 

, modest progress yesterday in 
„ the wake of encouraging eco- 
nomic indicators such as the 
better-than-expected PSBR 

figures and a cheerful survey 

- on the retail trade. 

- t 30-share index rose 

' by *0.7 points to 1,305.0 and 
" the FT-SE 100 index was 12.6 

points higher at 1.585.7. 

Business turnover still left a 
lot to be desired and this was 
not helped by a power failure 
at lunchtime which blacked 
out the market floor and 
. surrounding corridors for at.

Bumper basket from Sainsbury 


It is difficult to think of 
another family-owned retail- 
er which enjoys so much 
goodwill among its custom- 
ers, employees and share- 
holders as J Sainsbury. Its 
results, announced yesterday, 
show why. 

In yet another bumper set. 
of results, the company has 
continued its record-breaking 
performance. In the year io 
M arch 2Z 1986. profits be- 
fore lax and profit-sharing 
rose by 24 per cent to £208 
million on turnover up 14 per 
cent to £3.6 billion. 

The net margin on retailing 
has risen every year since 
1979 when it was 3.16 per 
cent until this latest year 
when it was 5.45 per cenL 

Margin improvement 
comes from a variety of 
sources. The move to larger 
stores gives economies of 
scale. Customers are trading 
up to higher-value, higher- 
margin goods. Sainsbury is 
enjoying greater volumes in 
its existing stores. Perhaps 
most importantly, productiv- 
ity has been improving — 
1985-86 saw the biggest pro- 
ductivity gain for seven years, 
helped by investment in new 
systems, data processing and 
distribution. 

In 1986-87. investment in 
new stores will continue at a 
similar pace to last year. 
Another 15 supermarkets 
with an average sales area of 
28,750 sq ft and six more 
42.400 sq ft Homebase D1Y 
stores arc planned, taking 
capital spending above the 
1 985-86 level of £240 million. 
This will give the company 
278 supermarkets and 23 
Homebase stores. 

As a result of this expan- 


sion, the debt ratio has gone 
from 1 7.8 per cent to 22 pa* 
cent since March 1985, and it 
will rise a few points more in 
1986-87. but the balance 
sheet cannot be said to be in 
any way strained. 

Meanwhile, the shares con- 
tinue to enjoy a premium 
rating in the stock market 
and there is little reason to 
suppose that they will not 
continue to do so. Assuming 
profit continues to grow at 
around 20 per cent the shares 
are on a prospective multiple 
of about 19.5 after charging 
capitalized interest The gross 
dividend yield is around 2.3 
per cent prospective. 

RHM 

The volatility of Ranks 
Hovis McDougall's shares 
this year has owed more to 
speculation surrounding 
S&W BerisforcTs 14.6 per 
cent stake than to surprises 
on the trading front. 

Yesterday's announcement 
of interim profits 9.5 per cent 
higher at £40.2 million coin- 
cided with the news that both 
suitors of Berisford had been 
referred to tbe Monopolies 
Commission. RHM can now 
breathe easily for six months, 
and get on with the business 
of baking. 

The long fight back to 
profitability in the bread 
division has not yet been 
won. Bread lost money in the 
first bal£ but it should break 
even in the current half and 
make money next year. 

The 5p increase on a large 
loaf was offset by 4p extra 
flour costs and lp for wages 
and overheads, but margins 
improved as efficiencies from 
the new plant came through. 


RHM has spent £55 million 
on re-equiping its baking 
operations in the past four 
years. Spending on flour mill- 
ing continues with £4.7 mil- 
lion taken below the line. 

The grocery and cakes 
divisions had a good half, 
with demand for Bisto gravy 
strong in a cold winter and 
Mr Kipling's new Christmas 
cakes “going down a treat." 
Repackaging of traditional 
apple pies has boosted sales, 
and the push by Mr Kipling 
on the international front is 
being particularly successful 
in France and West 
Germany. 

Adverse exchange rates 
look £1.5 million off profits, 
but earnings per share were 
flattered by a lower tax charge 
because of releases from de- 
ferred ' tax. Although this 
situation will not last and tax 
will creep up again, a rate of 
30 per cent is likely this year. 

Full-year taxable profits of 
£80 million are expected, 
giving a prospective price- 
earnings ratio of 10.8 on the 
shares, down lp at 203p. 
RH M is at a small discount to 
the food manufacturing sec- 
tor, indicating that there is 
some room for share price 
improvement. 

Evans Halshaw 

Evans Halshaw is coming 
to the stock market to raise 
money after its recent buy- 
out. It must feel the stock 
market is less likely to col- 
lapse than in 1984, when its 
flotation was pulled because 
the market was weak. This 
time it is going ahead despite 
the recent shakeout 


Evans Halshaw needs to re- 
duce its debt. Including fi- 
nance lease obligations, bal- 
ance sheet borrowings stood 
at £14.6 million al the end of 
April. In addition there were 
on balance sheet borrowings 
of £5.4 million compared 
with shareholders' funds at 
December 31 last year of 
£7.96 million. 

Interest charges on these 
borrowings amounted to 
£1.65 million in the year to 
December 31. up from 
£674,000. This offset the 
increase in trading profits 
from £2.77 million to £3.83 
million and left pretax results 
unchanged at £2. 18 million. 

After abandoning the float 
in 1984. the company was 
bought from its parent, LCP 
Holdings, by the manage- 
ment. which paid £9 million. 
The company is now valued 
at £17 million, which in- 
cludes £5.5 million for the 
new money being raised as 
part of the float 

In trading terms the com- 
pany has a good record. The 
Ford dealerships accounted 
for 42 per cent of the trading 
total and showed the biggest 
profit increase last year, with 
the General Motors, Jaguar, 
Rolls-Royce and BL dealer- 
. ships contributing a further 
37 per cent. 

Evans Halshaw also has a 
replacement car parts distri- 
bution business and a subsi- 
diary -dealing with contract 
hire and fleet management 

There is no profit forecast 
but the historic multiple is 8 
at the offer price of 120p. 
More interesting is the yield 
which is 6.8 per cent and the 
asset backing which is lOOp. 


SAINSBURY’S 


• Profits increase 24% to£208 million 



Record productivity 

Profit sharing at record 9% erf pay 


Points from the Chatman’s Statement 

1. Group profit before tax and profit 
sharing rose by 24 % and exceeded 
£200 million for the first tune. Net 
margin was a record 5.4596 whilst 
prices remained well below the 
average for supermarket chains. 

2. Group sales at £3,575 million were 
up by 14%. The increase in 
supermarket sales of £417 imflion 
represents real volume growth of over 
9% similar to the level of the past two 
years. Homebase sales advanced by 
£23 million to £87 million, a rise of 36%. 

3. At Haverhill Meat Products there 
was a substantial turn round in 
performance. SavaCentre achieved a 
sales increase of 18% to £279 million 
and a 30% rise in profit to £12.6 million. 
Our American Associate, Shaw’s, also 
had an excellent year with profit 
before tax and property profits up by 
24% to $25 million.

4. Annual investment exceeded £240

15 new supermarkets was the largest 
ever at over 27,000 sq. ft sales area. 

5. Improvements in efficiency through 
new systems in distribution and in 
the stores have helped productivity 
rise to a record level and give the best 
annual improvement for seven years. 
We are now installing electronic 
scanners in all our larger stores. 

6. About 34,000 employees will receive 
the equivalent of four and a half weeks’ 
pay from profit sharing. Over the seven 
years of the scheme more than £56 
million will have been distributed to 
staff in cash or shares. As a result of 
the Company’s share schemes, one 
quarter of employees are shareholders 
and nearly a third of shareholders are 
employees.

Strong rise in capital investment - 
continuing growth in German domestic business 


Sales 


New orders 


Employees 


The cyclical nature of the power plant busi- 
ness and above all the increased strength of 
the German mark against the dollar had an 
adverse effect on the percentage changes 
during the first six months of the current 
financial year, the period from 1 October 
1985 to 31 March 1986. If the power plant 


During the first six months of last year, 
Siemens sales grew by a significant 33 %, to 
£ 7,771m owing to the billing of two nuclear 
power plant contracts (Gundremmingen C and 
Grohnde). Because no nuclear power plant 
was billed in the first half of the current finan- 
cial year, Siemens world sales have dipped 
18% to £ 6,401m. Excluding the power plant 
business, Siemens recorded a slight growth 


The level of new orders reflected the absence 
of new power plant contracts in the Federal 
Republic of Germany and the effect of 
exchange rate fluctuations on international 
business. As a result worldwide order intake, 
at £ 7,263m, was 13% down over the same 
period last year. Without the power plant busi- 
ness, domestic order bookings rose by 7%. 
Siemens anticipates that new orders world- 


Orders in hand moved up 3% to £ 16,177m 
during the first six months. Inventories were 
increased to £ 5,786m (last year £ 5,159m) 
primarily in support of long-term systems 
business. 


Following the 20,000 new jobs created last 
year, the total number of employees was again 
increased by 9,000 to 357,000 over the first 
half of the current financial year. The work-

Structural change calls for 
high rate of investment 

Ten years ago, electronics accounted for one third 
of the world electrical market, by 1995 its share will 
have risen to two thirds. Siemens was quick to 
respond to the transition from electromechanical 
technology to electronics and today half of Its 
sales consist of electronic equipment and 
systems. This has required considerable capital 
expenditure, and will continue to do so. 
Consequently, during the current 1985/86 financial 
year, Siemens will once again increase R&D 
expenditure from £140m to roughly £160m and 
boost capital spending from £120m to around 
£175m.

Teamwork achieves 25th 
consecutive year of growth 

Mr Frank Gibb, Chairman and Chief Executive, reports: 


In 1985 the company recorded 
its 25th consecutive year of 
growth, with both turnover 
and profits up in the year- a 
not unsatisfactory 
performance. 

The group now embraces a 
great breadth of activities 
including not only engineering 
and construction but 
also substantial property 
and house development 
interests. We also have major 
involvements in coal and gas 
production, sand and gravel 
operations and a host of allied 
activities. . 

Turnover and profit 
before taxation show a 
continuation of the sustained 
rate of growth in recent years. 
Profits from our property 
operations were particularly 
good, whilst North American 
activities have also made a 
substantial contribution to 
profitability. 


The work available to the 
constructioriindustry in the 
U.K* is below its capacity and 
there has been little increase in 
public sector investment 

We face the future with great 
confidence and with the 
encouragement of a number of 
recent successes, including our 
participation in the Channel 
Tunnel Group and the Canary 
Wharf consortium, which has 
the potential for substantia! 
work in the coming years. 

As a strong supporter of the 
free enterprise system the 
company is also seeking 
opportunities in privately- 
financed construction projects 
which have great potential. . 

We shall be continuing with 
our programme of carefully 
selected quality property and 
housing land investments and 
are also seeking opportunities 
to expand our housing 
development activities.

Reports clash on tourism’s 
ability to 

2 ^' D erekHanis, Industrial Editor 

" Controversy over the ability 

* fll the fnilncm aiul - 





10 f the tourism and tefetoreii 
dustry to generate extra jobs in 
Britain broke out yesterday 
'to'^fnthe English Tourist 
. Board (ETB) and the Univer- 
sity of Surrey, a leader of 
research into the industry. 

The ETB has published the 
first detailed study of the 
'■various sectors in the indus- 
try. earned out by the Institute 
?of Manpower Studies. 

- It claims to show that 
growth in new jobs in the hotel 
and catei-ing sector had been 
just over 40 per cent in the 
.past 10 years, while the tour- 

- ism and leisure industry as a 
..whole had seen employment 
grow by about 15 per cent. 
More than 2 million people — 

-nearly one in 10 of the 
employed labour force — last 
,year were involved in the 
-industry, it calculates. 

But even as it was published 
yesterday a report from the 
University of Surrey was sug- 
gesting that some claims for 
-job creation by the industry 
/were “exaggerated and unreai- 
iistic." 

Tourism and leisure, with a 
' reputation as the country's 
fastest growing industry, 
.-.might not be able to live up to 
fall that was forecast for it, 

' .according to the Surrey report. 

- Mr Victor Middleton, who 
prepared the Surrey report, 

.-was scathing about claims that 
>1400,000 full-time jobs would 
/be created by 1990. 

This prospect was put for- 
ward just over a year ago in a 


report prepared for the British 
Tourist Authority, whose 
chairman, Mr Duncan Bloc k, 
is also chairman of the ETB. 

The Government has been 
looking to the tourism indus- 
try to provide new jobs as 
political pressures have grown 
over unemployment. 

The Surrey report says the 
rapid growth in foreign visit- 
ors to Britain during past three 
years is being used “for rea- 
sons of political expediency to 
justify exaggerated and unreal- 
istic claims". But the ETB 
chief execu tive. Mr John East, 
said of the ETB's study:. “This 
report provides indep enden t 
confirmation of the ETB’s 
roost optimistic estimates of 
opportunities and growth in 
the industry. It also hi g hli g hts 
the widespread regional distri- 
bution and the wide variety of 
job opportunities in tourism 
and leisure." 

The report should go a long 
way to promoting a more posi- 
tive attitude to employment in 
tourism and leisure ,he said. 

Employment in the industry 
rose by more than 300,000 in 
the 10yearstothe end ofl985, 
according to the ETB report. 
There were 270,000 jobs creat- . 
ed in hotel and catering,' 
despite the effects of increased 
automation in kitchens. 

Job opportunities for cooks 
and chefs have continued to 



rapidly, with hotels 
and catering offering the best 
chance of work for the young. 

Manual and clerical work- 
ers predominated in the in- 


John East: tourism industry 
not easy to measure 
dustry and it was one of the 
few sectors where demand for 
manual jobs had been rising. 
Graduate recruitment had al- 
so been increasing sharply 
since the early part of this 
decade, especially in travel 
and transport, the report said. 
In many occupations in the 
industry there were good 
chances of advancing quickly 
to supervisory or management 
positions. 

The number of self-em- 
ployed in. the industry is 
estimated to have risen by 
more than 40,000 in the past 
10 years. Seasonal employ- 
ment is now a relatively minor 
feature of the 1 industry, ac- 
. cording to the report. Two 
thirds of males were now 
employed full- time and so 
were one third of females. 

The Surrey critique does not 
contest that there has been 
overall growth in tourism 
since 1975. But it says there 
have been declining sectors of 


English and Welsh domestic 
tourism to be set against the 
gains that have been seen, es- 
pecially in travel-related as- 
pects of leisure and recreation 
including the growth of day 
trips. 

While the number of visits 
from abroad has increased 
dramatically over 10 yean the 
number of nights stayed had 
fluctuated considerably, the 
report said. Levels of spending 
as a result had not increased 
greatly in real terms. 

Although 1985 had seen 
overseas visitor totals at a high 
point the number of nights 
they spent in Britain was only 
a little higher than in 1979, a 
previous peak year, the report 
said. 

A meeting is e xpect ed to be 
held between the ETB and the 
Surrey academic team to ex- 
plore the apparent clash in 
findings. One of the problems 
could be the comparative lack 
of research in this sector. As 
Mr East remarked yesterday, 
employment in tourism and 
leisure does not lend itself to 
easy m easur ement. 

The ETB subsequently said 
it has been estimated that 
20,000 new jots could be 
created if licensing laws m 
England and Wales were liber- 
alized.

Overnight 
queue for 
Unipol 

From John Earle, Rome 

About 400 people — some 
with steeping bags — waited 
outside the Bologna branch of 
Banco di Roma during the 
night to snap up non-voting 
preference shares in Unipol, 
the fast growing insurance 
company. 

It was the first offering of 
the company's shares to the 
public. The sale dosed after 
three boors. 

Banco di Roma is the leader 
of a consortium of hanks 
charged with selling 10 million 
shares at MOOtire (£235) 
each before Unipofs listing on 
the Milan Bourse. Unipol, 
based at Bologna and con- 
trolled by the left-wing League 
of Cooperatives with 29 per 
cent of the shares held by 
West German trade moons, 
was 120th among Italian insur- 
ance companies 12 years ago, 
hot it is now ninth. 

It reported a 41 per cent rise 
in net profits for 1985 and is 
doubling the dividend. It will 
be the first time that part of 
the Italian co-operative move- 
ment has been quoted on a 
stock exchange. 

Unipol is cashing in on the 
fever which has gripped the 
public and poshed Milan's 
prices up four times since the 
beginning of 1985. The valne 
of dealings on Monday ex- 
ceeded 500 billion fire (£220 
million). Analysts are begin- 
ning to express concern, point- 
ing out that the price-earnings 
ratio of all shares quoted is 
now about 40. 

The surge has been partly 
because of too much money 
too few stocks. 


State ‘must continue 
to finance research’ 


Slate funding for scientific 
research needs to be maintain- 
ed. and if possible enhanced, if 
more private sector fending is 
to be attracted from industry, 
according to a report pub- 
lished yesterday. 

There is considerable scope 
for greater involvement by the 
private sector through a “trip- 
le alliance" with government- 
fended research councils and 
higher education institutions, 
but industry cannot realistic- 
ally be expected to fend basic 
research, it said. 

These are the main conclu- 
sions of a working party set up 
by the advisory board for the' 
research councils to study the 
possibilities of increased pri- 
vate sector funding for sci- 
entific research. 

Professor Peter Mathias, 
Chichele Professor of Eco- 
nomic History at Oxford Uni- 
versity, who chaired the 18- 
month study, said private 
sector finance should not be 
seen as a substitute for state 
fending. 

He said: “The main poten- 
tial private sector fenders, 
whether companies or chari- 
ties, were highly resistant to 
the idea that they should in- 
crease their contribution just 
to allow a withdrawal of 
public fends." 

To stimulate private fund- 
ing the Government should 
consider providing incentives 
through tax concessions. 
There should also be a struc- 
ture to enable research coun- 
cils to retain private earnings 
without a reduction in their 
state budgets, the report said. 


By Teresa Poole 

The working party — which 
look evidence from industrial- 
ists, financial institutions, re- 
search organizations, and cha- 
rities - found a great distrust 
of the Government's motives 
for encouraging private fend- 
ing and a feeling that it was 
“trying unrealistically to put 
the clock back to the pre-war 
situation" when state fending 
was at a much lower level. 

There was also considerable 
“misunderstanding" between 
industry and academic re- 
searchers which stood in the 
way of potential collaboration. 
To combat this, databases and 
registers of research activity 
should be set up and more de- 
tailed information published 
on jointly funded projects. 

Greatest scope for joint 
ventures between firms and 
academic scientists was in 
areas of “strategic" applied 
research, where commercial 
technological spin-offs ap- 
peared likely but where fur- 
ther work was needed to iden- 
tify products and processes, 
the report said. 

In comparison with the Un- 
ited States, France, and Ger- 
many — where the proportion 
of gross domestic product 
spent on civil research and 
development is more than 2 
per cent and rising — in Britain 
it is 1.6 per cent and falling. 
Similarly, industry financed 
60 per cent of total R&D in 
Japan and Germany, 50 per 
cent in the US, and only 40 per 
cent in Britain. 

Research councils — which 
are funded by the Department 
of Education and Science — 


should consider setting up 
companies to exploit research 
and “clubs" so that firms can 
participate in projects of inter- 
est to them. 

Professor Mathias said: "I 
hope we have discovered ways 
of widening the common 
ground." 

In its consultations with 
industry the working party 
found that large companies 
preferred to conduct as much 
as possible of their R&D in 
house. Smaller companies, 
without research facilities, 
could profit from contact with 
universities and polytechnics 
but had the greatest difficul- 
ties in making such contacts in 
the academic world. It said 
scope existed for closing this 
gap and that research organi- 
zations should take the lead in 
establishing these contacts. 

There was a wide percep- 
tion within companies that 
shareholders were most con- 
cerned about short-term profit 
gain and that this limited the 
amount of longer term re- 
search work. The report re- 
commends that to avoid re- 
search-oriented companies be- 
ing undervalued by the Stock 
Exchange all firms should 
have to specify research and 
development spending in their 
annual accounts.

Ulster businesses warning 


The “terrible" political situ- 
„ ation in Northern Ireland is 
discouraging the development 
of small businesses, according 
-to Mr Rowan Hamilton, 
/chairman of the Local Enter- 
'jnise Development Unit, 
-Ulster's small business agen- 
-cy- 

Despite the difficulties, he 
’'was able to announce a record 
figure of almost 4,400 jobs 
promoted in 1985-86— almost 
3,900 in 766 new projects, and 
a further 500 rescued, or 
'renewed" as the LEDU puts 
it, in 25 existing companies 
helped over short-term 
difficulties. 

, The agency's five-year tar- 
get of 12,000 new jobs to 
which it was committed in 
19$L has bpeiv exceeded by. 
3,713. 

The average cost per 
promoted lad year was 



By Bob Rodwell 

than £5,000, and with an 
average life of seven years, this 
was only £760 per job a year— 
“very good value for money" 
Mr Hamilton said. 

But both he and Mr George 
Mackey, the LEDU chief exec- 
utive, sounded warnings of the 
serious affects the Unionists’ 
anti-Hillsborough pact cam- 
paign was having on further 
small business growth, claim- 
ing that it had led to some 
projects being cancelled. 

In particular, the local en- 
terprise programme under 
which. thelLEDU collaborates 
with broadly based local com- 
munity groups to establish 
workshops and other small 
business premises, was being 
hit by the continuous adjourn- . 
mentpojicy being followed by' 
.the Unionists in many of 
Ulster’s 26 district councils. 


On the other hand, provi- 
sions of small business 
premises by commercial de- 
velopers, encouraged by 
LEDU. property development 
grants, is thriving — II 
projects being completed pro- 
viding 75 mini-factories in the 
first year of the grant scheme. 

The LEDU's emphasis has 
changed recently from the 
promotion of new ventures 
towards the expansion and 
development of existing com- 
panies. 

Some 40 per cent of LEDU 
clients now train in the Irish 
Republic, mainlan d Britain OT 
further afield, but their efforts 
were being handicapped by 
the image of the province. 

.The LEDU also said there 
had been a marked increase in 
the number of women with 
potential ventures.

offices at the end of July, a 
move which could lead to 
their redevelopment in a £100 
million venture. 

The FT is considering a 
number of options on the use 
of its prime site in the heart of 
the Square Mile by Si Paul's' 
Cathedral. 

If the printing operation is 
moved out it is likely that th e 
journalists and administrative 
staff will fellow suit, leaving 
the newspapers owner, the 
Pearson Group, with a valu- 
able asset. 

That is one of several 
options being discusssed, in- 
cluding staying in the build- 
ing. But tire FT wants to 
expand hs production facili- 
ties which may involve build- 
ing a new plant away from the 
City. 

The management is, howev- 
er, determined that its journal- 
ists will stay in or very dose to 

the Square Mile. 


The chance to' redevelop 
Bracken House, its home in 
Cannon Street, would enable 
the newspaper to capitalize on 
the booming City office 
market 

' The FT”s distinctive build- 
which outraged advocates 
‘Modern Movement" 
was designed by Sir Albert 
Richardson, the architect and 
built between 1956 and -1959. 
Itis not listed nor is it in a con- 
servation area. But the new 
City local plan shows it to be 
in the St Paul's heights area, 
meaning that any redevelop^, 
meat is restricted in height so 
as not to block the view of the 
cathedral 

The newspaper would have 
to obtain planning permission 
for any redevelopment of the 
site and it is likely that the 
City planners would be anx- 
ious to keep so distinguished a 
building. But it would be 
possible to build modem of- 
fice space behind the existing 
facade.

around 2000 characters

the models without screens can also be connected to

With the Chelsea Flower Show in full 
bloom and with at least one fine day 
recorded during the past week, it is 
natural that thoughts should turn to 
gardens. If properties are bought for their 
bricks and mortar, there is no-doubt that 

ltepnrim ran pgiTMmfip 'fogfr value — and 

■detract from the value if there is none. 

It is difficult to assess -their value in 
money terms, but the London agents 
Winfcwoith carried out a survey to try to 
find oiiL The agents discovered that, in 
nearly all parts of London, except 
perhaps this most central areas, the price 
difference was much more dear-cut for 
flats with gardens than for houses, with 
garden si 


By Christopher Warman 

Property Correspondent 


They observed: “It is thirty safe tq say 
that the existence of a garden or roof 


terrace will increase the value of a flat by 
between 10 per cent and 20 per cent— 10 
per cent in cases where die garden flat is 
lower ground-floor and rather poorly lit, 
but where the existence of a garden can 
compensate for this, and 20 per cent 
where the flat is in a sought-after 
location, light and spacious.” 


flat with views over the heath wili cost 
about £85,000 while a comparable flat 
. without the view is worth.about £70,000. 

It should also be mentioned that the 
conservatory, making a oome bade, have 
a marked effect on property values. 
Wmkworth point out that foe outlay of 
some £3,000 piusis well spent and ean 
usually be doubled in terms of property 
price appreciation. They report that a 
one-bedroom flat in Fulham went from 
£55,000 to £65,000 with the addition of a 
conservatory which cost £5,000 to build. 

Ore sector where the garden is 
increasingly treated as important , is in 
the new homes market The days when 
the *garden* was at best a tidy bit of earth 
and at worst a builder's tip are fast 
disappearing as it is realized that the 
garden helps to sell the house: 


and have done something about ft. 

Alfred McAlpine took the matter 
seriously and spent around £40,000 to 
create a small garden at last year's 
Chelsea Flower Show — fr won a gold 
medal. Now they have transferred that 
idea info action at their Grange Park 
Place development in Wimbledon. They 
will cover fees op to around £3,000 for 
the landscape g ar d ene r s Pear Rogers 
and' Alan Sargent, who created the 
winning garden, to pro ride either that or 
individual designs for the gardens of the 
houses, which cost£245,000 to £380, 000.

few cheerful pot plants of a clematis; 
with foe result that there is not only a 


more pleasant view from the living room 
but a contributory factor in the price 
appreciation of the property. ’ 


Houses present difficulties in assessing 
the value of a garden, largely because 
most have got one of some sort, and only 
reafly large gardens are likely to produce 
a noticeable effect on the price. Rather 


more obvious, say Wlnkworth, is the 
enhanced value of a property overlook- 


ing a park, private square or of course the 
river. A typical 4-bedroom flax overlook- 
ing. Hampstead Heath will cost about 
£120,000 for example, while foe identical 
flat without a view may fetch only 
£85,000. In Blackheath, a three-bedroom 


What was claimed to be foe first 
‘fitted’ garden was provided for Taylor 
Woodrow’s Abbeyfieldsdevelopment of 
.160 apartments and 49 houses in north- 
west London. The fitted garden idea has 
been .developed by Strawberry Hill 
Designs of Twickenham, who curated 
nine designs for Abbeyfidds, ranging 
from a Japanese garden, which has a 
patio, rock garden and timber bridge 
crossing; a small pool, through various 
traditional styles to a Roman atrium. 

Increasing interest in gardens can be 
seen from the example of Wares Built 
Homes, which last year introduced a 


and grounds. The Gzade n fisted house, 
built in Queen Anne style, has been 
modernized and decorated with the 
assistance of Nina GampbdL It has three 
reception rooms, a conservatory and

■Hfflborotwh Manor, near Stratford- 
upon-Avon, Warwickshire, is a Tudor 
country manor house, whfcti boasts 
connections with Shakespeare both in its 
early days and more recently. There is 
a legend that Anne WhaleJy, betrothed to 
Shakespeare shortly before his 
marriage to Anne Hathaway, has 
associations with the house and it 
would certainly have been known to him. 

The Shakespearian connection was 
renewed some 1 8 years ago when it was 
bought by John Barton, associate 
director of the Royal Shakespeare 
Theatre, who with his wife, Anne, now 
Professor of English Literature at 
Cambridge University, completely 
restored the house. 

The Grade It* listed house, carrying a 
Lordship of the Manor, has three 
recaption rooms, five bedrooms and a - 
superb Long Gallery. The 13 acres of 
grounds fncbde 150 acres of river 
Avon frontage, and is offered by Jackson- 
Stops and Saifs Cotswoid and South 
Midland offices at around £350,000. . 

■Grow Farmhouse, in the vfoago of 
Metbure Abbes, Dorset, is a Grade H 
fisted Georgian house dating from 
1799 and recently refurbished. R Is for 
sale as one of three lots wfth nearly 2 
acres of land and a cottage, or together 
for about C260JW0. The house has 
three reception rooms, a 40 foot stutfio - 
and five bedrooms, ft stands kt some 
21 acres, which by itself is on offer at 
about E22QJ00O through Humberts’# 
Shaftesbury and London offices. 


Monkton House, a Lutyens designed 
house transformed into a Surrealist 
haven on the Sussex. Downs in West 
Sussex, is fbr sale at around £750,000 — 
the first time h has come on the market 
since it washufit in 1902. This is the lat- 
est development in the recent history of 
Monkton, a Grade U bouse which was 
offered to English: Heritage “for the 
nation** on concessionary terms ax 
£lJm. 

Engli sh Heritage decided they coukl 
not afford it and subsequently a private 
buyer has railed to complete the pur- 
chase at an agreed price of £1 Jul The re- 
sult is that, minus the main Surrealist 
furnishings, the main house, with fit- 
tings, fixtures and effects, togetherwith a 
cottage and 66 acres of mostly ornamen- 
tal woodlands, is to be sold through the 
agents Pereds. . 

They say it is intended that certain 
furnishings, including soon Surrealist 
items such as the' safes and bmps 
designed by Salvador Dali,, should, 
remain in the house unti) a new owner is 
found. But there is the chance, for a 
purchaseracting swiftly, to buy addition- . 
al effects before Christie’s hold a.sale erf . 
works of art from . the. Edward James 
Collection in June. 

The house belonged to Edward Tames, 
millionaire patron of the surrealists, and 
other poets, musicians and artists of the 
1930b. He inherited the Edwardian 
hunting lodge from his father, which was 
altered in the mid- 1 930s by Kit Nichok 
' son and Hugh Gasson, mid now has 
metal drain pipes shaped as palm trees 
and plaster draperies hang i ng from the 
windows. ■ ■■ 

Dali advised on the furnishing and 
designed some of the pieces, ; 


Janies (tied last year, leaving his estate 
to the trustees of the Edward James 
Foundation, which runs the ' family 
borne. West Dean, nearby. Many of the 
furnishings from the Janies homes will 
be auctioned at West Dean from June 2~ 
6. Only surrealist foroitiiremadespecifi- 
cally for the house wiU be retained. This 
noun wifi be offered to the buyers of 
Monkton; otherwise it will be kept by the 
Foundation. 

The house has six bedrooms, three 
reception rooms and a separate staff 
suite, with a cottage of three bedrooms, 
and woodland and grounds of about 66 
acres. The house, given, its history, not 
surprisingly has its sauprises. A startling 
pink painted entrance door with its 
classical Georgian doorcase leads up to a 
blade and green glazed tiled roof, 
surmounted by adocktower showing not 
the hour of the day but the day of the 
week. 

' At the front, the roof appears to be 
supported by bamboo poles, while a 
weather vane rising above the roof is 
designed to indicate wind direction in an 
over-elaborate wrought iron frame in the 
entrance hall, where colourful wavy 
fabric tinea the walls, the carpet of the 
staircase is woven with { dog’s paw 
prints, and a porthole looks into a 
tropical fish lank. 

A bathroom serving one of the guest 
bedrooms contains another surprise, for 
tropical fish swim alongside the bath in 
the same tank as seen from the staircase, 
and in the grounds there is a swimming 
pod shaped like a half-sunken egg. 
Inside, the dining room has a trick door, 
operated by a foot pedal, and the whole 
effect can be disconcerting. But it is a fine 
feby. 4 7

premier classic on June 4. 
First, however, AOez Milord 
must dispose of today's useftil 
opposition. 

A most impressive winner 
of his only race as a two-year- 
old at Newmarket, ADez Mi- 
lord returned to Headquarters 
last month for the May Stakes 
and duly justified his position 
at the hem of the market with 
a narrow, yet decisive victory 
over AO Haste and VerardL 

The placed horses have 
since disappointed, but 
Wishlon (sixth) gave the form 
a minor fillip when defying 
top weight at Windsor on 
Monday evening and it should 
be remembered that ADez 
Milord was conceding almost 
a stone to most of his 
opponents. 

Today's race is over an 
additional three furlongs and 
while 1 have few doubts that 
the son ofTom Rolfe win stay 
lVi miles, his ability to act on 
this soft going has to be taken 
on trust However, 1 do not 
believe Harwood would risk 
his unbeaten record unless be 
were happy his colt will go in 
the ground 

Winds Of Light appears his 
principal rival on form but his 
wins were both on fist ground 


— — m.m MAW • U 

Ripon tonight when be would 
have had only one serious 
rivaL 

As in the classic trial, the 
majority of runners in the 
other listed race, the Clive 
Graham Stakes, would prefer 
faster ground. St Hilarion won 
two group one races in Italy 
last autumn but he is penal- 
ized for those successes and 
has to concede 1 21b to DuMan, 
who is my idea oflhe likely 
winner. 

For the day's best bet, 
though, I take Esquire to 
complete a 15-day treble in the 
Chichester Festival Silver Ju- 
bilee Handicap. Like Dnbian, 
Esquire is by High Line and he 
has already shown dramatic 
improvement from three to 
four by finishing a good 
second to. Nebris at Epsom 
before those impressive wins 

An 81b penalty takes his- 
weight to a formidable lOst 
lib but it is significant that

be said, “the prospect is as 
frightening as it's challenging." 

500 of Mamon's 23®S acres 
are devoted to racing, the 
remainder of the laud being 
formed by the company. Five 
separate areas of grass gallops 
cover the roDing downs. These 
are divided into eleven separate 
gallops and there are also two 
all-weather surfaces. 

The 35 or so bums surround- 
ing Manton Hall, from which a 
total of 40 classic winners have 
been sent out since 18711, are not 
now in nse. t>0 new boxes have 
been constructed, 40 of diem 
being conventional European 
style and the other 20 of the 
American open-barn type. 
“There were so many sharply 
divided opinions," said the 
trainer, “that we decided to have 
some of each kind".

A yearling yard with 40 boxes 
and a manager's cottage has also 
been., rebuilt since last 
September. 

Dressed in an immaculate 
dark bine doable-breasted Sait, 
Dickinson led the party at a 
smart trot onto the famous 
Qatford summer gallop. Despite 
the two inches of rain that had 
felles overnight, conditions 
underfoot were still sszprismgly

“It’s the intensive root system 
that has been growing since 
1870 (bat gives it its spring," 
said the trainer, “we have 
widened the 5 furlong straight to 
about 40 metres in width, there 
are six spars leading onto it and 
oar longest gallop is nine fur- 
longs. But at the moment I'm the 
fittest animal round Imre," he 
joked. 

As 40 of the 45 horses are two- 
year-olds, no fmther runners 
can- be expected until the end of 
May. “Stoim Hero by Storm 
Bird is 6 m most forward off the 
colts. The two other fittest are 
both fillies, Fhumting and 


Meadowbanlc." said the trainer. 

Anyone who is expecting fire- 
works in the first season is 
obviously in for a disappoint- 
ment. “If we had six or seven 
winners. I’d be happy," said 
Sangster. “It mutt take two or 
three years for the stable to build 
up its fnD st ren g t h ." At present 
75 per cent of the horses are 
•home-bred. 

Seven of Dickinson’s staff 
have come down with the trainer 
from Yorkshire, including Brian 
Powell and George Foster, the 
joint bead lads. 50 of the 70 staff

hostels. The ammenities indude

community spirit that has been 
engendered ™>"g ifc* staff is 
already impressive. 


No serious thought has yet 
been given to e ngag ing a stable 
jockey. "It’s early days yet," 
said Sangster. “But Darren 
Gancci and Jim Cassidy, cham- 
pions in Victoria and Sydney 
respectively, are both interesting 
prospects." 

Let Robot Sangster bare the 
last word about his exciting 
project, “To me the wonderful 
thing b that Manton is a 
privately owned and funded 
British enterprise from which we 
are going to challenge the best in 
the international racing world — 
I find this exciting in these days 
of multi-billion pound takeovers 
and the large foreign investment 
that b fighting its way into 
British industry. Given average 
luck, I see no reason why we 
shouldn't be turning out group 
one winners in the next two to 
three years."

There is a big turn-out for the 
Ferguson Gold Cup maiden 
Pomt-io-point final at Worces- 
ter this afternoon. Few have had 
racecourse experience but on 
form between the flags the ones 
making the most appeal are Old 
Applejack, Hot N*Scopey and 
Court Guest, (Brian Beel 
wiles). 

. Hot N’Scopey beat the useful 
Mendip Express (a winner 
since) in hear latest race and 


commands a great deal of 
respect. However, Old Apple- 
jack may just have the edge. 
After being beaten into third 
place, only six lengths behind 
Urser, on his initial outing he 
has gone on to win three 
■successive races, two of which 
were in testing conditions.

ATHLETICS: BIG THREE OPT OUT BUT CWMBRAN STILL ATTRACTS A RECORD ENTRY 


Relieved Cram 
sets sights 
on Gateshead 
charity run 


By Fat Botcher, Athletics Correspondent 
Steve Cram's hamstring in- same venue in the UK cham- 


jury is not as bad as was 
originally feared when he had 
to drop out of the north 
eastern counties champion- 
ship 5,000 metres after only 
five laps last Sunday. 

The world record holder for 
the mile said yesterday that 
three days of treatment should 
be sufficient to get him bade in 
training. “Having been 
through it all last year I know 
how u> deal with it and I am 
hoping to run in the Sport Aid 
10km race at Gateshead on 
Sunday," he said. 

The record entry of almost 
1,000 athletes for die first 
major track and field meeting 
of the domestic season, the 
HFC Trust United Kingdom 
championships at Cwmbran 
next weekend, reflects the 
necessity to get in some good 
performances in view of the 
early selection dates (June 22 
for the men and June 7 fenr the 
women) for the Common- 
wealth Games in Edinburgh. 

For people like Linford 
Christie, whose emergence as 
European 200m indoor cham- 
pion was presaged by his win 
in the 100m and shared title 
with John Regis at 200m in 
this same meeting last year, it 
is another opportunity to con- 
solidate early season form 
which has taken him to 
10.42sec and 20.6sec already. 

Todd Bennett, on the other 
hand, will be seeking to justify 
his move down from 400m to 
200m, which was ultimately 
prompted as much by his lack 
of progress over the longer 
distance in the last two years 
as by the fen that be ran an 
English record of 20.36sec for 
the shorter distance at this 


pionshipsin 1984. 

There is some acrimony 
among athletes whose entries 
have been turned down for 
Cwmbran, due to the huge 
numbers, especially when 
some of those athletes an- 
swered the BAAB's plea to 
support last year's champion- 
ships in Antrim, when the 
initial response was as warm 
as that which would greet the 
offer of a free trip to 
Chernobyl. 

One late entry that has been 
accepted is that of Geoff 
Parsons, seeking a new “high” 
after his successive jumping 
records of 2.27m and L28m in 
his last two outings. In the 
Kent championships last 
weekend. Parsons's ultimate 
failure was at a world record 
height of 2.42m. 

The middle distance trium- 
virate of Cram, Sebastian Coe 
and Steve Ovett are missing. 
They prefer to pursue further 
honours by starting with track 
races abroad. But Peter Elliott 
and Ikera Bifly. two young 
men whose challenge to those 
three champions was halted 
by injury last season, make 
their comebacks. Elliott won 
the Yorkshire 800m champi- 
onship in l min 47.5sec last 
Sunday and runs the same 
distance again this weekend. 

Wendy Sly and Fatima 
Whitbread. Olympic silver 
and bronze medal winners 
respectively, are the biggest 
attractions of the women’s 
entry. But there will be much 
interest in another comeback, 
that of Shirley Strong in foe 
100m hurdles after operations 
on both Achilles tendons since 
her own Olympic silver medal 
success. 



Bouncing back: Shirley Strong is ready to begin her comeback at Cwmbran next weekend

Western Samoa scrap 
plans for S Africa tour

Brazilians will be a force in

From Geoffrey Matthews, Bogota 


If the World Cap Is decided by 
saefa okMaslrfooed virtues as 
ball-playing artistry and team 
spirit prompt e d by national 
pride, then the foals in Mexico 
wiU be won by a Sooth American 
team, according to members of 
the strongly favoured Uru- 
guayan squad training in 


iogton 

Western Samoan Rugby Union 
decided yesterday not to go 
ahead with a plumed tour of 
South Africa. The union ac- 
cepted a South African invita- 
tion to tour in late January and 
have been under strong pressure 
to alter their decision. 

Tupuola Efi, the union presi- 
dent and Western Samoa's dep- 
uty Prime Minister, 
congratulated the South African 
Rugby Board for having invited 
a non-white team and said 
Western Samoa could accept a 
similar invitation in the future. 


Prime Minister Va'ai Kolone 
has encouraged union members 
to reconsider. He said in Feb- 
ruary Western Samoa staunchly 
opposed apartheid and was 
committed to the Gleneagles 


agreement against sporting con- 
tacts with the republic. 

Tupuola said when the tour 
was agreed that Samoa was 
regularly invited to South Af- 
rica, but traditionally declined. 
He accused union members of 
going behind his back by accept- 
ing the invitation at a meeting 
be did not attend. 

Despite the Prime Minister's 
opposition, several rugby of- 
ficials were understood to be 
strongly in favour of a tour, 
which could earn the impov- 
erished union up to $125,000. 

Officials said Western 
Samoa's exclusion from the first 
World Cup next year was a 
strong incentive to accept South 
Africa's offer. The island nation 
considers itself the leading rugby 
power in the South Pacific after 
beating Fyi and Tonga. 


England draw up squad 

By David Hands, Rugby Correspondent 


England's rugby selectors 
meet today to discuss the make- 
up of their world cop training 
squad and the inug ra mme of 
preparation planned for this 
summer, though details of the 
party are not expected to be 
available until Inter this month. 
As they do so, they may well 
take a sidelong glance at the 
United States, where Japan are 
on tear. 

England are in the same 
World Cop group as Australia. 
Japan and the US and results of 
the present torn, as well as on 
the last two years, indicate that 


challenge is 


the Am erican 
maturing. 

The Japanese have been 
beaten by both the Eastern 
Union and the Mid-West Union 
and have four more games to 
play, cahninating in a match 
against the American Eagles in 
Los Angeles on May 31. 

The Welsh B team play tire 
second game of their Italian 
tom, against Northern Italy, in 
Brescia today. They opened with 
a 44-15 win over Central Italy in 
Parma, four of their eight tries 
coming from While, the New- 
port wing.

Uruguay are one of three 
South American selections (the 
others are Ar g entina and Para- 
guay) here for foal training 
sessions, while Denmark’s 
squad flew into Bogota on 
Sunday-Becanse of Brazil's 
apparent failure to get their act 
together and the many question 
marks about Argentina, Latin 
American followers have been 
contemplating the unthinkable; 
a first-ever triumph by a Euro- 
pean team in a World Cap 
staged in the new world. 

Uruguay's exciting forward, 
Enzo rvaneescoH, does not share 
such gloom: “There's ho reason 
to fear the Emepeans. With a 
few exceptions, they can't match 
Sooth American technique. For 
that reams, and I hope I'm not 
wrong, I think the winner of this 
World Cap is gofnglo be a Sooth 
American team." 

His fellow Urugnayaa for- 
ward, Venancio Ramos, who 
plays for Lens in France, pin- 
points another essential dif- 
ference: “The Europeans are 
more inte r ested m money and 
never lose a chance to make 
more, while we Latin Americans 


are more sentimental. If we're 
told to join our country's selec- 
tion, we drop e v ery thing. We are 
very patriotic and proud to wear 
our nation's colours which we do 
with all our ability, love and 
dedication." 

There is a quiet confidence 
about the Urugnayaa camp 
which extends to the 
accompanying Press contigent 
from Montevideo, though no- 
body underestimates the for- 
midable task ahead In the first- 
round “Group of Death" with 
West Germany, Scotland and 
Denmark. The Uruguayan mood 
contrasts sharply with the ten- 
sion simmering in relations be- 
tween the Argentinian squad 
and the Buenos Aires journalists 
who condone id criticize what 
they regard as cautious tactics 
by their country’s ma nag er, 
Carlos Salvador Bflardo. 

However, the captain. Diego 
Maradona, insists that contrary 
to some reports the players have 
complete faith in Bifamlo. “The 
team will give their all and I 
hope the Press support ns. Bat,

Alan Gibson on the day England’s selectors failed their biggest Test 

Parker’s omission such a convenience 


Sixty years ago, on July 10, there 
occurred what R.KS. Wyatt called 
“the most extraordinary mistake in 
all Test history", when Charles 
Parker was left out of foe England 
side for the third Test match, against 
Australia at Leeds. 

The circumstances were unusnaL 
Parker, of Gloucestershire, was the 
best slow left-arm bowler in foe 
country, and had been summoned to 
Leeds because the weather was 
doubtful and be was just foe man to 
bowl the Australians out on a wet 
wicket The wet wicket was duly 
there, and it was the "■niwii 
feeling that the selectors had done 
well to include Parker.

was announced, Parker was not in it 
Had A.W. Carr, foe England captain, 
decided that foe pitch was not so 
difficult after all? It appeared not, 
because he won foe toss and put foe 
Australians in (sides have to be 
chosen before foe toss). 

U is said that Parker, knowing he 
was dropped, went to the lavatory and 
found himself occupying the 

neighbouring stall to the Australian 
opening batsman and acting ca ptain, 
Bardsley. ‘*Jnst foe wicket for yon, 
Charlie," Bardsley said raefally. 
When Parker told him he would not 
be nsfaig k, Bardsley checked in urid- 
widdte to dash back and teQ his 
colleagaes the good news. 

. Tate howled the first ball of the 


i nnin gs and had Bardsley caught at 
first slip by Sutcliffe. Macartney 
came in, and from the fifth ball was 
dropped by Carr at third slip. 
Macartney proceeded to score a 
hundred before lunch. Aust ralia made 
494, and in due conrse England had to 
follow on, though Australia did not 
have time to win the maw-h (Tests in 
En glan d then lasted three days).

With the Spanish Nations 
Cup securely under their beh, 
the British ndecs compete today 
m the final competition of the 
meeting, the Jertz Jumping 
Derby. Yesterday was a rest day 
for the horses m between the 
two major competitions. 

Nick Skelton should have the 
best chance of winning the 
£8,000 first prize with his grand

The long galloping course 
should suit the Dutch-bred geld- 
ing who was runner-up at the 
Htcksxead jumping derby two

John and Michael Whitaker 
will compete on Next Hop-

Britain in Monday’s Nations 
Cup with three dear rounds on 
Towerlands Diamond S eeke r, 
will jump the Irish-bred gelding 
again today, but does dm rate 
his chances highly. “He is sola 
derby horse," he said yesterday. 

This is only the second run- 
ning of the Jerez derby and the 
riders are hoping for an 
improvement to last year’s 
course when, as John Whitaker 
put it, “They were still digging 
out the ditch for the Devil's 
Dyke when the competition was 
due to start." That fence, with 
ns very steep ditch, proved the 
main problem last year — even

have been much admired, 
particularly fay the Hickstead 
course designer, Pamela

judge at this show, 
however, was speaking out yes- 
terday about the shortcomings 
of the water jump in the Nations 
Cup course where several 
horses, including Next Hop- 
scotch and Raffles Apollo, col- 
lected four faults. Pyrah said it 
bad caused problems because 
the water had not been coloured 
dark blue so the horses could see 
the bottom and were not afraid 
to jump into it rather than over 
it Eventually it transpired that 
the organizers had inte nded 
colouring the water but found 
the shops were font when they 
went to buy the blue powder. 

Despite the surprisingly pro- 
longed struggle which ensued 
before the British won the 
Nations Cup — it was won after 
a three-team jump off between 
the Belgians and West Germans 
— Ronnie Massarefla. the ream 
manager, is well satisfied with 
his four riders. They had worked 
together as a team and be said it 
had provided them with just the 
right build-up for July’s world 
championships. He admitted 


that be had not expected it to be 
such a struggle for them to win 
but added that it was no bad 
thing because it would stop 
them being too complacent 
There is certainly no room for 
complacency. While Britain 
were fielding their four top 
riders, the West Germans who 
finished third, had only their 
third best team and the Belgians, 
the runners-up were without 
two of their top riders, including 
Eric Wanters. They, however, 
did discover a trump card in 
Joris Meulemans. aged 26, who 
was making his debut in a 
Nations Cup team. He had eight 
faults in the first round and then 
two clear rounds on his grand 
prix winner, Acardc He is a 
contender for a place in foe 
Belgian team for the world 
championships which, at the 
beginning of tht« meetin g, he 
said were only a “remote 
dream”.

measures 


r Jersey ( 

The former heavyweight cham- 
pion. Larry Hohnes. told a New 
Jersey state legislative commit- 
tee yesterday that boxing should 
be better regulated to protect the 
health and financial interests of 
the competitors. 

Holmes, Who lost a decision 
to Michael Spinks on April 19 in 
an International Boxing Federa- 
tion (1BF) dummotuhip bOuL. 
assailed promoters and judges, 
saying regulations ought to fo- 
cus on ensuring that people who 
decide the outcomes of fightsaxe 
qualified and Mr. “when a. 
fighrer works hard, and gets.m 
there and wins, be should get foe 
decision,” HohnesrsauL adding. 
“The last fight was taken from 
me.” 

Holmes testified before a 
committee which is looking into 
recommendations that would 
regulate the sport in New Jersey. 
In December the state's 
commission on investigation 
proposed that boxing be banned 
or tightly regulated. Since then a 
number of proposals have been 
made to regulate the sport. The 
proposals include requiring two 
physidans and an ambulance at 
aH bouts; requiring boxers to 
wait specified amounts of time 
before fighting again; re quiring 
promoters to supply medical 
insurance to boxers; licensing 
promoters; and requiring back- 


ground investigations of 
promoters, managers and 
trainers. 

Holmes said that boxing of- 
fers many youngsters a chance 
to rise from economic despair 
and gain success and feme He 
added that he opposes any 
efforts to ban the sport. “I would 
. like to see other young boxers 
follow in my footsteps." he said. 
“When they talk about banning 
boxing, they talk about banning 
people." 

. He shrugged off suggestions 
that , foe sport is too brutal, 
saying: “I have off niy faculties." 
He conceded, however, that foe 
sport has room for improve- 
. menu and suggested foal the 
thumbs on boxing gloves be tied 
down to prevent eye injuries. 
Slates that prohibit managers 
and trainers from shouting 
instructions during bouts 
should lift the bans, be added. 

Heatiso said all boxers should 
have to wait 60 days between 
bouts, or 90 days if they have 
been knocked out. In bouts of 
eight rounds or fewer. Holmes 
rid. boxers should be required 
to wear protective bead gear. I 
Boxers - should be required to 
undergo ‘ annual brain scans, 
stress tests and other medical 
examinations, be said. Healso 
suggested that promoters and 
boxing associations contribute 
to a pension fund that should be 
created to assist retired boxers.

Incurring wrath of 
the supporters 


It wss the combination of the two 
things — the dropping rtf- Parker 
followed by asking Australia to bat — 
that caused wrath among English 
supporters, especially in the west In 
Bristol The Western Dotty Press 
enquired: “If Parker cannot play in 
these conditions ami circ um stances, 
when will bis claims be considered?” 
Time provided a doleful answer. 

The England selectors that year 
were PJF. Warner (chairman), PA 
Perrin, AEJL G ilKgan, and two 
professionals, Hobbs and Rhodes. 
The profesaosals did not take a very 
prominent part in foe fifflissiw*- 
Tbe captain was always consulted. 
Warner wrote afterwards (a) that it 
was a committee decision and (fa) that 
Carr had exactly foe side be wanted, 
an evasive eondnsion. Parker had no 
doubt that Warner was responsible. 
The two men did not get on, and there 


especially those 
who did not like him, took 5,278 
wickets in first-class cricket. Only 
Rhodes and Freeman have taken 
more. He played only once for 
En gl a nd , in 1921. On several other 
occasions he was standing by, bat left 
aside at the last moment. He was 
undoubtedly a great bowler, but he 
was also iradoabtedly an inveterate 
grumbler and a gen erally difficult 
chap, and It was with relief that 
selectors and captains would drop 
him, if they thought they had a 
reasonable excuse. At Leeds in 1926 
there was no reasonable excuse. 

Yet a couple more points may be 
notic ed. How difficult did the pitch 
turn out to be? The correspo n dent of 
The Times averred that “not a ball 
hopped, not a ball turned sharply, aD 
day". Opinion was heavily against 
him, but England had two other slow 
left-handers in the team — Kflner and. 
Woolley. Kilner was chosen as an *11- 
roander. ami Woolley did not bowl 
mtfcli by then. Their figures were 
Kilner 37-6-106-2, Wooifey 4-0-26-0. 

TTiis suggests that The Times 
correspondent had a point The final 
choice for foe ride was thought to be 
between Farkerasd Macaulay. Ma-

Macartney considered him the 
most dangerous bowler in the country 

and had promised to knock him out of 
the side. Warner wrote that be 
“murdered Macaulay". 

Macaulay got Macartney out, in 
foe end, but it was his only .wicket for 
123 runs, and he never played agwm^t 
Australia again. However, he scored 
76. an innings which had much to do 
with saving foe match. 

Would Macartney have dealt so 
effectively with Parka? It b not 
impossible, but it would have been 
interesting to see him try. 

And then in 1930, in the last Test at 
foe Oval, Parka- was again «n* n«g 
those called on to be present for 
England, and again left out In foe 
following match, at BristoL to be sure 
oa a very different pitch, Gloucester- 
shire tied with foe Australians. 
Parker took JO wickets in the matrli, 
including font of Bradman. In that 
Test at the Oval in 1930. foe final 
choke once more had rested with foe 
captain. He was RXS. Wyatt.

Bell’s masts become 
the order of the day 




Sydney (Reuter) — Dennis 
Conner, the United States skip- 
per who lost the America's Cup 
in 1983, is turning to Australia, 
the country that defeated him, 
for the technology to help 
recover it. Conner has asked 
Mike Beil, a Sydney mast- 
builder. to supply two 546,800 
(about £30,800} masts to the 
New York Yacht Club's 
syndicate. 

America U is the most highly- 
rated of the 12 syndicates 
competing for the right to race' 
against an Australian cup de- 
fender off Perth, Western 
Australia, next February. • • - - 

Conner suffered the ignominy 
of losing the cap to Alan Bond's 


Australia II three years ago and 
bringing to an end the New 
York Yacht Cub's 132-year 
hold on the trophy. 

America II is not the only 
foreign syndicate turning to 
Bell's Zapspar company for the 
sophisticated masts. The New 
Zealand team, "a French syn- 
dicate and. a second American 
syndicate have also .submitted . jV 
orders. v-- -. 

“Our masts are a single-piece 

extrusion that is shaped using ^ 
techniques superior to anything 
available in Europe or 
America,” “Bell said. “We have 
just received an order for three 
from one of the Frtndt 
syndicates.”

Back to the doctor Peter 
Davison (BBC2, 935pm) 


• A VERY PECULIAR 
PRACTICE (BBC2, 935pm) is 
part-comedy, part-satire, 
part-romanceaboutagroupof 
medics on a university 
campus, whether the parts add 
up and stay the course - 
there are seven episodes, which 
could be a couple too many - 
onty the next tew Wednesday 
evenings will teff but the initial 
signs are promising. Having 
established that the practice 
is not only peculiar but possibly 
the worst in tfw land, the 
writer Andrew Davies employs 
the timeless dramatic device 
of Introducing into this amiable 
Shambles a wfitog Innocent 
He is played, somewhat 

predictably, by Peter 
Davison, and off him bounce the 
other characters: alcoholic 
boss (the splendid Graham 
Crowden). aggressive 


feminist (Barbara Flynn), public 
school fascist (David 
Troughton). Romance lurks in the 
shapely shape of a 


ittwQod). Comparisons with 
other campus satires, notably 
The History Mm and Lucky 
Jtm, wifi be inevitable and an 
ultimate test of this series wiQ 
be how far It succeeds in 
creating its own style. 

• HAIL THE NEW PURITAN 
(Channel 4, 9pm) is a feature- 
length film by the American 
Charted Adas (the documentary 
maker, not the muscle man) 
about the dazzling young star of 
British dance. Michael Clark. 

Using a “day-ln-the life-of" 

framework, it is a rounded 
and comprehensive portrait. 


which combines reportage 
and fantasy and sets its subject 
to a context much wider than 
the view from the stalls. Clark’s 
choreography anchors the 
piece together (12 dance 
sequences are featured), 
while providing the base from 
which to explore the 
inspirations of his work, the 
fashions, the music, the night 
dubs of young London to tne 
19805. Like any innovator, 

Clark faces the constant hazard 
of trying to make each new 
piece more mind-bending than 
the last and there have been 
dark whispers that at the ripe old 
age of 23 he is already 
snowing signs of creative 
sterility. To such 
blasphemies, this programme is 
the strongest possible retort

.V Ail the pre-

SPOffm tatioo 
U,4fl|i aroused by 
\ f \ Sport Aid's 
\ r international 
V cricket match 
yesterday was mashed away by 
the English weather at its 
worst rarely one hour's token 
play was possible in miserable 
conditions, the players going 
through the motions for the 
sake of the spectators. 

Though small comfort to 
those who had anticipated a 
memorable cricket occasion, 
there was the consolation that 
approaching £150,000 mas 
raised for the relief of African 
famine. 

Fall marks, too, for the 
Warwickshire dub, who pro- 
vided the administrative ser- 
vices free of cost and to their 
ground staff, who laboured 
hard to rid the ground of the 
pools of water 

Violent thunderstorms over- 
night left many parts of the 
Midlands flooded and it con- 
tinned to rain until mid- 
morning. What was reduced to 
a 30-over match finally began 
at 230. Gower's Rest of the 
World XI put West Indies in 
to bat but from the start it was 
dear that the slippery turf and 
a wet ball would allow few 
extravagant acts by either 
batsmen or bowlers. 

Richardson, the swashbuck- 
ling Antiguan, hinted, though, 
at the fun that might have 
been. He off-drove Alderman 
for six as soon as the Austra- 
lian bowled and also hit four 
aggressive fonts. 

Botham, loudly cheered in 
everything he did, took the 
only wicket to fall when 
Greenidge hit a high ball to 
kmgroff where Kapil Dev held 
the catch despite a collision 
with Bice. There was a 20- 
minute stoppage after the first 
26 balls. Kay resumed in 
dreadful light and after anoth- 
er heavy and lengthy down- 
pour, the game was 
abandoned.

England party for the two 
Texaco Trophy one-day inter- 
nationals, on Saturday and 
Monday, will be taken by Bill 
Atbey. Stepping into 
Botham's shoes is not quite 
what Atbey is being asked to 
do, and it would be no good 
his thinking that it were. In 
lad he may not play, which 
Botham would certainly have 
done. 

Athey was not far off the 
England side thai went to 
West Indies, and he did better 
than most on the recent B tour 
of Sri Lanka. His brief Test 
career in the early 1980s. 
against Australia and West 
Indies, was a personal disaster 
(1 7 runs in six innings); but be 
is a very much bettor player 
than that might suggest- Bring- 
ing in David Smith was 
another option open to the 
selectors. 

Botham, meanwhile, will be 
asked to present himself at 
Lord's some lime next week to 
lace the disciplinary commit- 
tee of the Test and County 
Cricket Board (TCCB). I find 
it a little strange that Brian 
Langford, the chairman of 
Somerset, who bowled off- 
breaks for them between 1953 
and 1974, should already be 
saying how welcome Botham 


It so happens that the new 
president of' Somerset, Colin 
Atkinson, is also chairman of 
the TCCB disciplinary com- 
mittee, and this’ presents s 
problem. He wiS attend the 
meeting, but probably stand 
down from the chair while 
Botham's future is being de- 
cided. As headmaster, howev- 
er, of a public school 
(Millfield) he may not be 
unfamiliar with the quicksand 
which separates suspicion 
from proof! 

Botham will know within 
48 hours the charge he win 
face when be comes before the 
board, probably tomorrow 
week. Although the original 
article in The Mail on Sunday 
on March ! 1, 1984, the source 
of Botham's embarrassment, 
referred to drug-taking on the 
England tour of New Zealand 
in 1983-84, he has admitted 
only to smoking cannabis 
before then. This being so, the 
charge is more likely to be one 
of having brought the game 
into disrepute. Where, on 
another count, Botham, and 
also Somerset for that matter, 
did undoubtedly breach the 
board's regulations was in not 
having last Sunday's article, 
which carried Bo tham 's name, 
vetted by them.

Dilley back 
to face 
tour team 

By Peter Maison 

After the frenetic merry-go- 
round of one-day matches and 
some, wet weather, the pace 
slows a fraction today as a full 
programme reappears in the 
Britannic Assurance county 
championship. 

The Indian touring team 
take on Kent, at Canterbury, 
and here, Ellison, who is m 
England's party for the Texaco 
Trophy series, Christopher 
Cowdrey and Underwood 
take a resL Dilley, who is also 
in England's squad, has recov- 
ered from an infected foot, 
and is included in Kent's 
team. 

After heavy rain at North- 
ampton yesterday, the match 
between Northamptonshire 
and Essex was abandoned as a 
draw shortly after 230, and 
before a scheduled third in- 
spection by the umpires. 
Essex's four bowling bonus 
points take them up three 
places in the championship 
table to seventh place, with IS 
points from three matches. 
Stone had been Cook's part- 
ner in the match, but be is 
stood down for 
Northamptonshire's match 
with Warwickshire at 
Edgbaston. and with Bailey 
moving up the order to open 
the innings. Wild has been 
brought back into the side. 

Warwickshire's signing of 
the South African, Brian Mc- 
Millan. has been so successful 
that the former West Indian 
batsman. Alvin - FCallicharran, 
has been .unable to find a 
regular place in the. side.' 
Knllicharran’s appeal to be 
reclassified as English for reg- 
istration purposes will be 
heard by the' Cricket Council 
on . Wednesday next

Miss Hammond, a longer 
hitler than average, produced 
birdies at all the par fives, 
except the 13th, where her 
worst shot of the round (her 
own words) placed her in the 
rubbish and she bad to take a 
penalty drop and, with it, a 
six. 

' Miss. Shapcott taking aweek 
off O level studies, could also 
have been a shot better lad

longer than a foot at .the 12th. 
Even as it was, she amply 
justified her growing reputa-

The 1 8th fully illustrates the 
point to those of us without 


Hat’s off 
toChapeu 

Tony Meo, the world 
No. 11 snooker player, - was 
beaten four frames to two by 
Brazil’s top performer, Rno 
Qiapeu, in the opening round- 
robin match of the inaugural 
Brazilian Masters at Sao Pau- 
lo. Steve Davis carried the flag 
for the Romford Matchroom 
team, however, with a 4-1 win 
over Roberto Carlos in the 
four-man event. 

Chapeu is a sporting hero in 
Brazil at their complicated 
version of tire game, watched 
by millions on television ev- 
ery Sunday night. His trade- 
mark is a white fedora, worn 
even while playing. He had 
vowed be would never mhe it 
off in public until he had been 
beaten. Davis managed that in 
Brazil a year ago, but Chapeu 
still would not remove it-

New Mexica The Irish man- 
ager, based in Albuquerque 
just 60 miles away from the 
Scots m Santa believes 
that tte risk to the playets far 
outweighs any advantages. 

The Scotland manager, Alex 
Ferguson, had hoped to make 
contact with the Irish party, if 
only to train, with them aqd 
“practise .free hides against 
each other.’’ However, with 
high insurance premiums on 
the players in both squads. 
Bingham decided that the idea 
was not Wise; 

He said- “I don’t think it's 
tin. It would not be worth, the 
risk as we are both very 
competitive nations. I cairt 
imagine people like Graeme 
Souness and Norman 
Whiteside holding back even 
in training and 1 think it's 
better we save it for the World 
Cup.” 

In contrast to . the relaxed 
approach by Scotland id Santa 
Fe, Bingham has been operat- 
ing a much stricter regime 
with his Irish squad.
