Thatche r reshuffle freshens Cabinet’s elec toral appeal

The Prime Minister em- 
barked on an attempt to 
freshen the Cabinet’s appeal 
last night in the run-up to the 
next genera] election by ap- 
pointing two of her best 
communicators to take charge 
of education and transport

But the third major ap- 
pointment in a strictly limited 
reshuffle, Mb* Ridley's, move-

Environment to tate over

surprise and consternation 
among Conservative MPs. . 

With Tory MPs pressing for 
a more sympathetic rate sup-

calling for additional spending 
on housing and improvement,

One former minister said 
night: “I am quite, stag- 
gered. She has solved one 
presentation problem and ere* 
aiedan even bigger one.” 

The reshuffle was caused by 
Sir Keith’s decision to stand 
down. In the .wannest of 
tributes, Mzs 'Thatcher told

been the architect who shaped 
toe policies which led to her

Teachers hail report as Joseph’s epitaph 



The annual report from the 
school inspectors (HMIs) was 
hailed yesterday as a fitting 
epitaph for Sir Keith Joseph, 
Secretary of State for Educa- 
tion ana Science, for the past 
five years. •’ 

Teachers’ nmoitt'eboss to 
emphasize toe report’s spot- 
lighting of poor accommoda- 
tion, inadequate resources, 
too few books and shabby 
furniture rather than its 
damning indictment of the 
quality of teaching in state 

Based on visits to more than 
1,648 schools, it found 30 per 
cent of all lessons to be 

unsatisfactory with many 
teachers unable to appreciate 
the potential and needs of the 
children they were teaching. 

A quarter of all schools were 
s u ffer ing - from shortages . of 
equipment and-fte ponditipn 
of the buildings - dontinned to 
deteriorate. There has been no 
improvement in the stale of 
school bwk&ngri risce 1981. 

“In some schools and .col- 
leges toe conditions in which 
teaching, and ' learning take 
place adversely affect the qual- 
ity of pupils' -and s tu de n ts’ 
work and do nothing to en- 
courage their sense. of enjoy- 
ment and pride in their school 
or college,” said toe report. 

Mr Doug McAvoy, deputy 

general secretary of the Na- 
tional Union ofTeachers, said 
the report was a “devastating 
indictment” . of the Joseph 
years>“Itiefiects what parents 
and teachers have been saying 
fora long time— that mapy 
schools are desperately short 
of bodes and equipment and 
those that are . not are bring 
bailed out by parents.” 

Mr Peter Smith, assistant 
general secretary of the Assis- 
tant Masters and Mistresses 
Association said: “Just as he 
flies the coop the political 
chickens are coming home to 

Mr David Hart, general 
secretary of the National As- 
sociation of Head Teachers, 

acknowledged the criticisms 
of teaching quality. The report 
reinforced that the state edu- 
cation syston was in crisis, he 
said. “Die Government must 
move urgently to repair its 
scandalous neglect of toe state 
system apdjt must underwrite 
the ACAS~ talks whidrcould 
go a long way to sort out the 
profession's own problems of 
teacher appraisal.- . 

Sir Krito said for him the 
main message was schools and 
colleges needed not only ade- 
quate resources, but also bet- 
ter trained and deployed 
teachers, as well as better 
management and leadership. 

“Only then will our policies 
for education bear trait in 

higher standards of pupil and 

on which all con- 
edneation need to 
reflect 1 urge them to study 
this report closely.** 

Pointing out that local edu- 
cation authorities had budget- 
ed to spend 8 JS per cent more 
than last year on education, he 
said this was. a lot more than 
the cost increases they faced, 
especially in view of a drop of 
nearty 2 per cent In pupils. 

“I look to local education 
authorities to use some of that 
increase in their spending to 
make good the deficiencies 
which HMI have identified,” 
be said.

IRA arms 
cache plot 

By Richard Ford . 

A plot to supply and smug- 
gle arms, including ground-to- 
air missiles, to the Provisional 
IRA has been smashed by toe 

Eight men, including one 
from Belfast and three, from 
the Irish Republic, appeared 
in a US court yesterday, 
charged with attempting to 
buy weapons for terrorists for 
use against security forces in 
Northern Ireland. 

They were trapped after a 
12-month inquiry by agents 
posing as arms dealers. The 
men were arrested in Bedford, 
a suburb of -Boston, after 
allegedly attempting to buy 
weapons from the undercover 

The oonstenment would 
have included automatic 
weapons, ammunition and, 
most importantly, ground-to- 
air missiles which the Provi- 
sional IRA have long wanted 
to attack helicopters ferrying 
supplies and troops to outly- 
ing border areas. 

The breaking of tbe expen- 
sive and daring plan by the 
Provisionals to secure much- 
needed weapons is toe latest 
success by security forces m 
the US, Europe, the Republic 
and Northern Ireland. 

It is a major setback for toe 
provisional IRA, but demon- 
strates that despite attempts 
by the US Government to 
crack down on fund-raising 
for the terrorists, there is cash 
available and sympathizers 
prepared to help in gun- 
running. . . • 

It is toe second tune m 20 
months that security forces 
have broken toe Boston con- 
nection of the Provisional 
IRA. The terrorists badly need 
a major supply of arms.

From Christopher Walker, Moscow 

Nearly a month after the 
Chernobyl disaster, tbe Soviet 
authorities have released de- 
tails of the military-style oper- 
ation by a team of 400 
specially-recruited coal min- 
ers who are working against a 
strict deadline to complete the 
construction of a giant con- 
crete cooling slab under the 
crippled reactor. 

Although the authorities 
have given no indication, of 
the length of the deadli ne by 
which the: slab must be m 
place to prevent the reactor 
posing newMisks of Contami-

public that it will be met

high radiation levels, the min-

A warning to his new Cabi- 
net colleagues not to demand 
spending increases was given 
by tire Chancellor test night 

In a direct challenge to 
Government ministers who 
believe that there should be a 
“balance” between spending 
increases and tax cuts, Mr 
Nigel Lawson claimed that 
people do not want “a higher 
bill fortire taxpayer*. 

He. argued that if toe Gov- 
ernment, spent a bit more here 
and there, it would soon “be a 
question of how much taxes 
have to go up.” 

- This is a signal that toe 
Chancellor intends to try to 
stick to his target of £144 
billion for public spending 
next year. 

Negotiations with depart- 
ments on their budgets are 
only just beginning. However, 
Mr Lawson carefully avoided 
mentioning any fignre in his 
speech to the British Venture 
Capital Association.

leased yesterday which suggest

economy is “so strong that it

strike, and a collapsing oil

turns to 

By Anthony Berios 
Political Correspondent 
Labour's National Execu- 
tive Committee hearing of toe 
case against LIverpooTs lead- 
ing Militant turned into a 
farcical trial of patience and a 
test of legal footwork at toe 
party's headquarters hi Lon- 
don yesterday. 

After a six-boar session of 
procedural groundwork, punc- 
tuated with repeated adjourn- 
ments, consultation with 
lawyers, a sandwich lunch, 
and even a chorus of Happy 
Birthday for Miss Frances 
Curran, a MUHant-sapporting 
member of toe executive, Mr 
NeQ Kinnock and his col- 
leagues began to hear toe 
defence of toe first of toe eight 
accused, Mr Tony Mnlheara, 
president of the Liverpool 
district Labour Party . 

Havmg already failed to 
hmirli the long-awaited hear- 
ing because of a left-wing 
walkout last March, it had 
been hoped that a two-day 
sitting of the executive would 
complete expulsion proceed- 
ings against the eight, includ- 
ing Mr Derek Hatton, deputy 
leader of Liverpool coonaL 
Ln tbe event, Mr Mnlbearn 
marapd to tie toe executive 
up with requests for legal 
representation, legal coasnfta- 
tioa, a new defence submisrioa 
and threats of a High Cost 

A senior party source said 
after three hoars that it was 
hoped toe cross examination 
of Mr Mnlheara would now 

One hour later, Mr 
Mnlheara walked out of toe 
hearing, refusing to recognize 
the JurisdictioB and authority 
of the executive. But tire 
rfgfoncp was then read into tire 
record by Mr Larry Whitty, 
tbe party general secretary. 

Then, at 3.40pm - six boms 
into toe hearing — the execu- 
tive received two simultaneous 
messages. The first, from Mr 
Mnlheara *s solicitors, in- 
formed the executive that they 
would be applying for a High 
Court iqpmctioft to bait the 
proceedings. The second came 
from Mr Mulheara himself, 
saying that he woald not seek 
an injunction and asking 
whether he could r et ur n to the 
executive and take up where 
be had left off. 

That request was granted, 
and it was pointed out that the 
executive would therefore bear 
Mr Mulheam’s defence in 
duplicate, Mr Whitty having 
already completed his reading 
of Mr Mulbeara’s written 
submission, and that there 
could be no question of a lack 
of opportunity for Mr 
Mtdheara to put his case. 

The party said: “It is quite 
dear that tactics are being 
employed to string out and to 
frustrate the proceed in gs. 
They show that Mr Mulheara 
has scant regard for the 
jurisdiction of the national 

Crackdown on 
security for 
UK diplomats 

By Richard Evans, Lobby Reporter 

A massive 

down is being enforced at 
Britain’s, diplomatic posts 
overseas because of the grow- 
ing terrorist threat, it was 
disclosed last night. Some 
missions are to be relocated 
because of existing dangers. 

Details of the improved 
protection were given to the 
Commons Foreign Affairs Se- 
lect Committee by Sir Antony 
Acland, head of the diplomat- 
ic service, who produced a 
catalogue of 41 incidents, 
including 25 bombings and 
four deaths, involving British 
officials and premises over- 
seas since 1976. 

Thirteen incidents occurred 
in western Europe, 1 1 in the 
Middle East, six in Africa, five 
in Latin America and six 

The crackdown comes after 
a top-level review by the 
Foreign Office, which con- 
cluded that “it needed to pay 
more attention to protecting 
its staff and property in a 
world increasingly under 
threat from terrorism and 
other forms of violence”. 

Sir Antony told MFs last 
night: “There has been a very 
regrettable increase in the 
threat from terro ri sm in a 
number of countries. There 
has also been an increase in 
general lawlessness, violent 
crime, break-ins at homes, 
mqggings so on.” 

A report, presented to min- 
isters last November, recom- 
mended closer management 
of security in London and a 
new Foreign Office committee 

has been set up to coordinate 
work. The report called for 
improvements to overseas 
missions and added: “Some 
missions may need to be 
relocated in safer sites. Others 
will need to have their de- 
fences strengthened.” 

In written evidence to MPs 
on the diplomatic posts under, 
the biggest threat, the Foreign- 
Office saysTThe list of these, 
posts varies as the threat- 
changes and as counter-mea- 
sures are taken. It is impossi- 
ble to know where terrorists 
are going to strike next but 
certain posts in tbe Middle 
East, Africa and Central 
America are of special con- 
cern, for example Beirut and ' 
San Salvador. At these posts 
staff numbers are kept to the 
minimum level compatible' 
with operational needs.” 

At missions and residence? 
facing a high threat of vio- 
lence, the improvements in- 
clude perimeter lighting and 
protection, closed-circuit TV, 
incident and intruder alarm 
systems, and “safe havens”; 
additional trained guards; ar- 
mour-protected vehicles for 
heads of missions; and the 
movement of missions or staff 
Sir Antony told the select 
committee that the Foreign 
Office did not want to “throw 
in the sponge” at missions 
most at risk from terrorism. 
“We prefer to enhance securi- 
ty and continue to be repre- 
sented where the Government 
and Parliament think Britain 
should be represented.” 

£15m art theft at 
Irish mansion 

By Richard Ford 

Art treasures valued at more 
than £15 million, including 
masterpieces by Vermeer and 
Goya, were stolen from a- 
country mansion in the Irish 
Republic yesterday in the 
second raid on the building in 
1 2 years. 

Seven of the 17 paintings 
lifted in their frames from the 
walls of tbe home of Sir Alfred 
Beit were recovered four miles 
away by three boys on a 
fishing trip late in the 

The paintings were found 
near a van, stolen from Dublin 
last week, and had been 
dumped in a ditch and two 
were slightly damagsd. 

But the 10 most famous and 
valuable pictures, including 
Vermeer’s Lady Writing a 
Letter and Goya's Dona 
Antonia Zarate, were still 
missing last night as suspi- 
cions new that Republican 
para-raiHtaries were behind

tional picture on the quality of 
every university to be es- 

Mr Shock said that, white 
universities accepted the com- 
petitive element introduced 
by the UGCs selectivity exer- 
cise, attempts to combine that 
with cuts were damaging them 
financially and academically. 
“Selectivity becomes the shar- 
ing out of misery.” 

He called on the Govern- 
ment to provide £15 million 
immediately to cover an in- 
crease in rates on universities. 
At Leicester, where Mr Shock 
is vice-chancellor, the rates 
have risen by 33 per cent; for 
universities as a whole, the 
rise is 13 per cent 

The vice-chancellors main- 
tain that another £100 million 
must be found for the univer- 
sity system by the end of 1989.

Policing pickets at the News

Wapping in east kradon has 
req^ued moire- than- 400,000 
man horns of police time and 
330 officers have been injured 
and 851 arrests have been

the first time in three months 
after the county council re- 
scinded a ban imposed in

the ban, but said some people

At least 25 Labour-con-

against Times Newspapers,

Dubbins challenges 
highway arrest 

A case of obstruction 
against Tony Dubbins, genera]

istrates’ Court yesterday after 
his lawyer said the road

was arrested in was not a 


Mr Geoffrey 

counsel for Mr Dubbins, aged 
41, of Ravensden, Bedford, 
who denies obstructing the 
highway, said the main road 
outride the plant in Wapping, 
east London, The Highway, 
did not live up to its name 
because it had been closed to 
traffic by the police mi the 
night of Mr Dubbins’s arrest 
Mr Robertson said that a 
road was a highway only if“aQ 
members of . the public 

Badge, adjourned the case 
until May 28 to consider if 
there is a case. 

Police Constable Richard 
Mills had told the court that 
Mr Dubbins had been arrested 
at 1.36am on March 23 at the 
junction of The Highway and 
Giamis Road. Glamis Road 
had been closed all night to 
anyone except residents, Mr] 
Robertson said. 

PC Mills said a large crowd 
of demonstrators were Nock- 

entitled to ' pass and repess by 
along it”. ■ ■ 

Mr Robertson agreed that 
there was- no precedent for 
that defence and the stipendi- 
ary magistrate, Mr Peter

police, but about five men, 
including Mr Dubbins, re- 

PC Mills said Mr Dubbins 
said: “ Let’s sit down". Mr 
Dubbins had then sat down 
with the others in die road,

PC Mills then said: “Come 
on. You have been told once. 
Move.” They did not and Mr 
Dubbins was arrested after a 
brief straggle.

Burdett’s Will Trust, which 
had come from the former 
family homes, Ramsbury

from different sources and ft 
lias been forgotten what came 
from where. The bidders do 
not seem to have . shared 
Dreweatt’s hopes that some of 
the pieces on offer were made 
by the master. 

Dreweatt’s best hopes were 
pinned on an elaborately 
carved George HI gjltwood 
overmantel mirror, which re- 
sembled Chippendale's de- 

It sold for £23320, a 
healthy price for a mirror of 
the period, but definitely not a 
Chippendale figure. Some 
doubts had even been ex- 
pressed over its date. 

A set of six George in 
carved giltwood girandoles 
sold for £95,400 to a Loudon 
dealer, again a healthy pike 
for good period pieces, but not 
in die Chippendale bracket 
The auction totalled 
£537,000, a comfortable in- 
crease on the £400,000 that 
Dreweatt’s estimated before 
the auction.

lective market when it offered

high prices for the work of

Harold Harvey, with the 1912'

handling complaints of foe- 
aches of parliamentary privi-

yesterday by MPs not to 
punish The Tima for leaking 
the secret draft of a select 
committee report. . . . 

MPs voted by 158 votes' to 
124 not to impose sanctions 
against The Tima and its 
lobby reporter, Mr Richard 
Evans, in spite of a warning 
from Mr John Biffen, Leader 
bf the Commons, that select 
committee confidentiality 
would disintegrate if they 
went unpunished. 

The Commons Committee 
of Privileges had found The 
Tima report, based on the 
draft of a committee report on 
radioactive waste disposal, 
was a contempt of Parliament 
jand recommended a six- 
month bar from Parliament 
against Mr Evans and the loss 
by The Tima of oik of its

of Westminster for the same 

The Prime Minister and Mr 
Norman Tebbit, the Conser-

Mr Biffen had warned that 
there would be little point in

ing at similar leaks in future if 
the Commons did not support 
its judgment in the Evans 

Its failure to do so effective- 
ly left the select committee 
system without the ancient 
protection of privilege for 
private deliberations. 

Although disappointed se- 
nior Conservative MPs, in- 
cluding select committee char 
irmen, appeared yesterday to 
have little enthuriasm for 
iking a fast change of the 
rules. MPs from all parties 

not be allowed to stay as they 
were:. . 

The procedure committee 
had been expected in tire next 
sesaon of Parliament to carry 
oitt a reriew of the work of the 
select committees, and MPs 
now expect it to be extended 
to look at the roles as well. 

Mr Biffen said yesterday; 
“There should be a pause tor 
thought and reflection gen- 

The Commons only . Iasi 
March approved new standing 
orders caddying the applica- 
tion of privilege to the work of 
select committees. 

But ministers accept that 
there is now a question-mark 
over the willingness of select 
committees to refer breaches 
to die privileges committee 
and over the attitude of that 
committee towards imposing 
sanctions. There will be strong 
pressure, however, against 
ending the privilege prot-

servative MP for Worthing 
and chairman of the liaison 
committee of Commons select 
committee chairmen, said the 
aigumettts in favour of retain- 
ing the confidentiality of d raft ' 
reports were not changed by 
the vote. “This was a decision 
on a individual case,” he said. 

Sfr Peter Emery. Conserva- 
tive MP for Honiton and 
chairman of the procedure 
committee, said the Com- 
mons decision would make 
the work of the select commit- 
tees in coming to detailed 
conclusions considerably 
more difficult

spared the time there to take 
part in an expedition from 
Greece to India retracing the

Poor equipment and 

pupils, HMIs say 



►4 i U 

Poor te^hiag, neglected 
buildings, shortages of equip, 
ment and ineffective manage- 
ment are identified bythe 
school inspectors (HMIs) as 
* having da m a ging effects cm 
pupil performance and teach- 
er morale. 

In a devastating annual 
report, published yesterday 
the inspectors say that 30 per 
cent of . lessons are below 
standard, more than in previ- 
ous years, and that the schools 
sector of education gives 
“cause for most concern". 

They comment: “it is get- 
ting by and providing satisfac- 
torily for most pupils in many 
places by robbing Peter to pay 
Paul; doing less; or with the 
help of sizeable contributions 
from parents. 

“There are sharp polariza- 
q lions in provision between 
schools in different parts of 
the country and within the 
same 1 local education 

Although the inspectors are 
at pains to point out that more 
money would not solve all the 
schools' problems, they repeat 
the warnings of earlier reports 
about the state of repair of 
many schools. “The state of 
repair of much of the 
country's school building 
stock is deteriorating. 

“Long-standing problems, 
linked to little sustained im- 
provement in recent years, are 
threatening to make some 
' $ school buildings almost unus- 
able. This oondnued neglect 
constitutes a serious financial 
problem for the education 

“Furthermore, grim, ne- 
glected buildings do nothing 
to stimulate and encourage' 
pupils and teachers to give of 
their best and raise their levels 
of achievement, or to attract 
to the teaching profession able 
_ and enthusiastic teachers.** 

The report, the ninth of the 
inspectors* short annual re- 
ports on the effects of local 
authority spending policies, is 
as scathing about the quality 
of some teaching. 

In three out of five schools 
teachers’ perception ofpupds’ 

* potential and needs was inade- 
quate, and in all schools it was.'

“Taking ail institutions to* 
gether, the most frequently 
notea factor affecting the work 
was again the quality -of 
teaching", the report said. 

The proportion of lessons 
rated satisfactory or better Ml 
by 5 per cent last year, to 70 
pa r cent, the deterioration 
being most maiiraq in second- 
ary schools. 

An illustration given was a 
mathematics lesson on ratio. 
The teacher worked through 
two examples on the black- 
board without asking for any 
contributions from the pupils, 
who were then told to copy 
these into their books. A third 
example was then given to the 
pupils to do but none had 
completed the work by the end 
of the lesson. 

• Three oat of 10 lessons in 
schools were substandard. 

• Poor leadership and man- 
agement were found in a 
quarter of schools. 

• One h five lessons was 
adversely affected by poor 

• A quarter of schools suf- 
fered shortages of equipment. 

• Half the schools needed to 
widen their range of fagrhmg 

“The pace of the work was 
slow and few pupils gained 
much from the lesson", said 
the inspectors. 

“Towards the end pupils' 
behaviour deteriorated and 
the noise level got out of 
control. The unduly didactic 
approach provided for little 
involvement of the pupils, 
and linked to the slow pace, 
made for a poor quality 

The report found a bad 
match between teachers' qual- 
ification and experience and 
what they were called upon to 
do in schooL In one secondary 
school French lesson the read- 
ing of the passage by toe 
teacher and pupils showed 
poor accents and toe transla- 
tion into English lacked 
accuracy. V . 

The teacher bad studied 
French as a subsidiary part of 
his degree and in five years of 
teaching French had received 
no help and advice. 

Better lesson preparati on 
was need in 30 per cent of toe 
schools vished, while miring 
staff morale was thought to be 
needed in 20 per cent of 
schools in toe interests of 
improving iMfhing quality. 

Poor leadership and man- 
agement were identified in 
more than a quarter of toe 
schools visited. In only a half 
was toe pfenning anH organi- 
zation of pupils' work judged 

Book provision has deterio- 
rated, and many schools were 
found to have insufficient 
books. Others had okl stock 
which could not be replaced, 
and many were having to 
choose between toe replace- 
ment of old stock and the 
purchase of books needed for 
toe new GCSE examination. 

The inspectors say that toe 
disparities in provision be- 
tween and within farad au- 
thorities and TTK*Ttiitif> ns are 

“At school level H is the 
least able in all types of school

A police surgeon yesterday 
described scats on the body of 
a gul aged 10, caused by 
injuries allegedly inflicted by 
her parents, as “one of the 
worst cases I have ever seen". 

Dr Peter Green told a 
Central Criminal Court jury: 
“I have never seen -any child

Mrs Patricia May, for the 
prosecution, has alleged the

. The isolation and frailty chat it often brings can all too easily 
become loneliness and despair.

is bringing thousands of old people new independence, and a new 
lease of life. ... ....

Here's what it means to just one of them: “You hove to be strong inside

I didn’t get out for weeks on end, but now I have regular trips to look 
forward to. I can choose my own shopping - 1 couldn’t before. I’d be lost

worth going on. Now I have hosts of friends here, we do all sons of

A refuge from loneliness is not the only thing a day centre provides. 
Their warmth, and Hot food are life-savers to thousands of old people. 
Arid staff and friends can keep a watchful eye over the welfare of their

May 12 that every MP is to be 
provided with a briefing note ob 
the programme which castaiaed 
very many nriatahea, Mr WO- 
Ham Waldegrave, Minister for 
Environment, Countryside and 
Local Government, said in the 
Co mmo n s. 

He explained that etdnding 
the contribution from the daugh- 
ter products of radon fat dweft- 
iugs, which varied very widely, 
the radiation doses front natural 
background ranged from abost 
&9 to IS millisievert* per year. 
InchwBng the contribution fawn

I to 10 mfliiriw aw a year.

ation, tbe internationally rectna-

Sir David Price (Eastleigh, Ch 
His figures show there is a wide 
variation in natural radiation 
level, from which we can draw 
the condnaion that fa judging 
radiation levels there is a lot yet 
to be identified and measured. 
We should not add to the man- 
made levels of radiation if we 
can possibly avoid it.

disagree. The exposure on av-

Mr Waldegrave: He is right to 
remind ns that in any major 
power generation there are prob- 
lems of pollution. It is probably

problems ia going to turn out to

Mr Frank Cook (Stockton 
North. Lab): Would he explain, 
bearing in mind his statement 
that the acceptable level is 1

legally enforceable level is five 
times more and why America 
and West Germany have levels 
which are 20 times more strin- 
gent than those which apply in 
this country? 

Mr Waldegrave: He has made 
the mistake of believing all the 
things tim* were in dud Pan- 

orama programme which in 

almost every critical respect was 

The methods by which we 
calculate safe doses hi this 
country are differently measured 
fb qn in the OS and Germany. 
They are tighter here than fat 
Germany and equivalent to what 
they are in the LIS. 

Mr John Ward (Poole, C) asked 
if there was any emission to the 
atmosphere following the 
French raxtiatioa leak and what 
measures the Government was 
taking to keep everyone 

Mr Waldegrave: My officials 
and those ofthe Radio-Chemical 
Inspectorate have been in roach 
with their opposite man bets in 
France. There has been no 
leakage of radiation from the' 
building concerned and there- 
fore no impact on the outside 
environment in France let alone 
the United Kingdom. 

DOE monitoring 
to be reviewed 


Arrangements for co-ordinating 
the monitoring of radiation 
levels bad worked effectively 
after the Chernobyl accident 
bat the Department of the 
Environment would be examin- 
ing its procedures in the light of 
recent events to determine 
whether any changes were de- 
sirable. Mr William 
Waldegrave, Minister for 
Environment, Countryside and 
Local Government, said during 
Commons questions. 

Mr Sfanoa Hughes (Southwark 
and Bermondsey. L) said more 
progress was needed on the co- 
operation of seven Government 
departments and six other agen- 
cies and information should be 
given in a form die ordinary 
person could understand. 

He pointed to figures on 
radiation levels given m Nature 
magazine, but Mr Walde&uve 
replied that the article went on 
to say these levels were still a 
trivial proportion of back- 
ground radiation. 

Mr Nell Thorne (Ilford South, 
Q said local authority emer- 
gency planning officers should 
be congratulated on their work 
in assisting the Government 
with monitoring and in their 
role in the civil emergency 

Mr Waldegrave said he would 
like to congratulate local author- 
ity officers and all those who 
manned monitoring stations. 

Mr Roger King (Birmingham, 
Northfield, Q asked whether 
the Russians knew some of their 
fallout had arrived in areas 
designated as “nuclear free 
zones" and asked what level of 
protest there had been from 
these zones to the Russians. 

Mr Waldegrave said there had 
been a number of local authori- 
ties under left-wing Labour 
control which had taken a 
negative view about civil de- 
fence. There might be a more 
serious incident m the future so 

these attitudes were extremely 

Dr John Cowling ham, chief 
Opposition spokesman on the 
environment, said if it was the 
case that a British official in the 
International Atomic Energy 
Authority received an inquiry 
about how to deal with graphite 
fires from Russia on April 29 
why was this information not 
communicated immediately to 
the British Government? Would

Mr Waldegrave said though 
nobody doubted the level of 
heroism and technical com- 
petence now being brought to 
bear by the Russians on this 
tragedy, if any government had 
to answer questions . about

Minister’s pledge 
to water users 


When the Government pri- 
vatized water it would take the 
opportunity to strengthen both 
control of certain quality objec- 
tives and the machinery for 
representing consumer interests 
and investigating consumer 
complaints. Lord Efron. Min- 
ister of State for the Environ- 
ment, said during a debate in the 
House of Lords on the water 

Lady Nicol (Lab), opening the 
debate, drew attention to the 
need for large-scale investment 
in the industry. She said that 
pollution control and environ- 
mental protection and con- 
sumer interests were most at 
risk in the Government's 
privatization proposals. 

There was a widespread feel- 
ing that these functions were 
properly the role of public 
bodies and should not be in the 
hands of private companies. It 
was in the long-term interests of 
the consumer that this national 
monopoly of an essential 
commodity should remain in 
public hands. 

Lord Elton said that experi- 
ence had confirmed the Govern- 
ment in its belief that 
privatization brought new life to 
old industries to the benefit of 
all concerned. 

The Government recognised 
the need for safeguards against 
monopoly abuse. It would there- 
fore set up a regulatory regime. 

headed by the Director General 
of Water Services, who would 
police the licences under which 
the water companies would be 

These would set standards for 
service as well as limits for 
charges. There would also be 
new consumer consultative 
committees, one for each com- 
pany, to deal with consumer 
affairs and investigate specific 

Privatization under the care- 
ful regulation proposed would 
protea both the environment 
from pollution and the con- 
sumer from exploitation. 
Lord Nathan (Ind) said the 
private water companies would 
be intimately concerned in plan- 
ning procedures and this in- 
volved an element of polfrrcal 
consideration. They would be 
exercising a judgement which 
was essentially administrative 
and political. There could be a 
conflict of interest between their 
public duties and their own 
interests and those of their 

Lord Selsdon (Q said that to 
remodernize tire water industry 
would require £1 billion a year 
for a minimum of six years — 
£400 million on water and £600 
million on sewerage. The sooner 
they moved towards privatiza- 
tion of those industries which 
could stand on their own feet 
without Government interven- 
tion the sooner the revitaliza- 
tion of the water industry and 
the sewerage system. 

PM to meet Sudanese athlete 

The Prime Minister has turned 
down a request that the Govern- 
ment should increase the 
amount of funds for famine 
relief by an amount equal to the 
estimated VAT revenue they 
receive in connection with Sport 
Aid fund-raising. 

In a written reply, Mrs 
Thatcher praised the Sport Aid 
initiative and said she would 
meet Mr Omar Khalifa, the 
Sudanese athlete, in connection 
with Sport Aid, at the weekend. 

Successive governments, 
however, had taken the view 
that to allow special VAT relief 
or matching refunds for char- 
itable fund-raisins events was 
not the right way to help in such 

Nevertheless, the Govern- 
ment contribution to famine 
relief in Africa had been consid- 
erable: £81.4 million in 1984; 
£96-5 million in 1985; and £27 
million in the first quarter of

Airline Operating Surplus 



Profit Before Taxation 



Transferred to Reserves 



Commentary on 1985/86 
Volume of scheduled airline traffic in- 
creased over that for the previous year by 
6.7 per cent in terms of passengers and 7.7 
per cent in terms of Revenue Passenger 

Cargo and Charters were also buoyant. 
Yields per passenger kilometre were little 

The Airline Operating Surplus has been 
affected by the following: 

Jfc Higher staff costs due to greater 
traffic, improved customer services, 
preparations for move to Terminal 4. 
Productivity has improved 4 per cent. 
* Higher aircraft charges 
3c Lower fuel costs 

Exchange losses on settlement of 
overseas receivables less payables 

Current Year 

Following the exceptional events of recent 
weeks, forward bookings and cash receipts 
are down. However, yields are up which 
confirms that the reduction in traffic 
is primarily in the leisure and holiday 
markets and on intercontinental services. 
In the face of lower traffic and uncertainty 
as to how long this may continue, 
measures are being taken now to limit 
the damage that may be caused to British 
Airways. Recruitment for this summer 
season has stopped and staff numbers are 
being reviewed. A number of scheduled 
services will be cancelled or combined 
with others in order to avoid carrying un- 
economic loads. At the same time tactical 
marketing is being increased to boost 
traffic particularly on the Atlantic and 
early indications are that this is working. 
The Board will not hesitate to take such 
further steps as it considers necessary in 
order to minimise the adverse effects on

MPs vote not to punish 
reporter for doing job 


MPs voted by a tnqjontyof 34 
not to exclude Mr Richard 
Evans. Lobby Reporter, of the 
The Times, from the House of 
Commons as had been 
recommended „ by - “ e 
Committee of Privileges for 
pu blishing a draft report of a 
select committee. - 

By 138 votes to 124, the 
Commons /decided that it 
would be proper to punis h an 
MP who disclosed the draft 
report of a select committee, 
but considered it would be 
wrong to punish a journalist 
merely for doing his job. 

Mr John BSffen. Lofti Privy 
Seal and Leader of the House, 
opening the debate moved the 
exclusion of Mr Evans for six 
months for leaking a draft 
report of the environment 
select committee on 
radioactive waste. Not to do 
so, he said, would be to put the 
whole basis of confidentiality 
of the deliberations of the 
select committees at risk. 

There were shoots of 
“Shame" and - “Name Turn” 
when Mr BSffen said the source 
of the leak bad still not been 

It was argued that select 
committee reports were 
mea surab ly more wiflrantial if 
they were unanimous and cut - 
across party lines. If a number 
of reports of the proceedings 
appeared in the press before 
deliberations were complete, it 
inevitably became more 
difficult for a committee to 
achieve a unanimous view. 

The witnesses from The 
Times had refused to disclose 
their sources and had also 
refused to rule out any category * 
of persons such as stiff ofthe 
committee from how the 
information might have been 
obtained. Clearly no useful - 
purpose would be served by - 
instituting any further 
investigation. • - • . 

The chairman of the 
committee (Sir Hugh Rossi) 
had given evidence -about the 
damage be believed was done 
to bis committee's work' and 
asserted that substantial 
interference had taken place, ft 
was on the evidence so forcibly 
presented by him that the 
Privileges Committee came to 
formulate its recommendation. 

The Times had 
acknowledged that they .were, 
fully aware that in publishing- 
their leak they were . 

committing- a breach - of- 1 
privilege. They justified this as 
being tn ibe public interest 
The Committee of Privileges ' 
could not accept this. 
Otherwise the implication was 
that The Times and -not -the - 
House was the unquestioned ., 
judge of what consituted public ' 
interest in this matter. 

The environment select * 
committee had concluded their 
work had been substantially 
impeded and the priviJ^es 
committee agreed. It was not in 
dispute that a breach of 
privilege had occurred- The 
central issue was what was an 

appropriate, effective and 
equitable response of . the 

No one was questioning foe 
judgement of tins chairman of 
the Privileges Committee that 
The Times had breached jhe 
privilege of the House. Toe 
argu ment, which would . be 
echoed in the. debate, centred 
around the question of the 
penalties to be imposed. . 

The Committee had given 
the question measured 
cons deration. Inevitably.' the 
suggested penalty relieved a 
high degree of valued 
judgement as there wa* very 
tittle precedent. 

Mr Peter Shore, shadow 
Leader of the House, said if an 
MP was- found - to be 
responsible for the leak, be 
would be punished fry being 
removed from the committee.' 

Bfffea: Source of leak stQl 
not identified 

Similarly, a journalist from the 
Lobby or tin; Gallery if found 
guilty should be liable to 
appropriate penalty. 

Mr Evans had published the 
environment .committee 
chairman’s draft report on 
radioactive waste* The Times 
report had given -a .seriously 
misleading -impression of the 
committee, made it -more 
difficult for -MRs'to approach 
events impartially and bad 
damaged . trust between* 
members of the comm ittee: 

The journalist and the editor 
had insisted they were acting in 
tiie public interest and it had 
been made plain it was the 
settled policy of The Times to 
seek such information from 
select committees and to 
publish it. 

When Mr Evans had been 
asked that if he had published 
the report in the pabhc interest 
why was it the- public-' 
interest to waits; until . 

it had been properly mscossed. 
'anti repotted, be nhd : 'repiied

:anotben newspaper getting bold,

the commercial interests of The-

Mr John Corn (Hendon 
"North, Q: If the identity of the 
person who leaked the 
document had either been 
available to the Privileges 
Committee or were it to he 
available to the House now. 
would it make a change in the 
decision ofthe committee? 

Mr Shore: I do not believe it 
would but there would be a 
penalty to be imposed upon the 
MP. - ;

Sir Lux GSbnow (Chesfaam and 
AmershamX) said be hoped 
the House would reject the 
-motion because he believed it 
was making a mountain out of 
a stole hill and barkfog up the 
wrong tree. 

The idea that once MPS got

started deliberating they shook!

from publicity, and that that 
protection should be reinforced 
by penal sanctions against the 
press, was absurd. 

The fret that we are unable 
to find out who did leak (be 
said) does not mean we should 
punish the wrong person out of 
Our frustration. 

Whoever it was that leaked 
this report did leak, and did do 
wrong. The Times am I Mr 
Evans did not leak and did not 
do wrong. They published, as 
indeed was their right and duty 
to do. 

If the motion went through 
Mr Evans would be respected 
everywhere else but in- the 
Hocse and The Times wonld 
not lose. The octiy loser would 
be the House which would pace 
more have made a fool of itself 
on a matter of privileges. 

Mr Michael Foot (Blaenau 
Gwent, Lab) said that he consid- 
ered the matter as a journalist as 
well as an MP. He had seen 
conflicts between Fleet Street 
and the House. There had been 
many important occasions 
when the journalists outside the 
House had been right and the 
House proved wrong. 

' There have been a lot of 
occasions ia recent times (he 
said) when the House erf 1 Com- 
mons has dambered on to its 
privileges hobby horse and then 
fallen flat on its free. I do not 
want the House to do that over 
this, although that is posable if 
these recommendations go 

Sir Hugh Rossi, chairman of 
the Environment Select 
Committee, said the attitudes 
of the newspapermen in 
question when they appeared 
before the Privileges 
Committee, were cavalier, 
-truculent ; and . -almost

However, he considered the

an amendment, together with

He. had done so bec au se it fe 
went against the inherent sense 
of fair play of the House that a

Mr Enoch FeweB (Soufe-

would, in effect, be deciding to 
deprive the setecr committees 
of the opportunity of

should be severe. 

the provision 


There bad been a vast expansion 
of legal aid expenditure in recent 
years and this was one reason 
For the need for further 
rationalization of the legal aid 
system, Mr John MacKay, Un- 
der Secretary of State, Scottish 
Office, said in the Commons 
when be moved foe second 
reading of the Legal Aid (Scot- 
land) BilL 

He also told MPs that a royal ’ 
commission in 1980 had high- 
lighted some criticisms- of .foe • 
aid arrangements and had sup-, 
ported the view that fr was 
wrong in principle for the Law 
Society, as the governing body 
of the solicitors' profession, to 
be responsible for supervising 
payment of public fluids to its 
own members. There was scope 
for conflict of interest. 

The BUI sets up a Scottish 
Legal Aid Board which would 
unite most aspects of legal aid, 
and Mr MacKay was confident 
that combining' the various 
responsibilities in one body 
would lead to significant 
improvements in the admin- 
istration in Scotland by 
overcoming tbe present 
frag men tation* 

For criminal taral aid, the 
changes in the Bill concerned 
more dan simply administra- 
tion. Aid arrangements in the 
more serious cases dealt with 
under solemn procedure would 
remain essentially unchanged 
and respomability for consid- 
ering applications would con- : 
tinue to rest with the courts. 
Courts would continue to con- 
sider foe financial criterion of 
whether undue hardship would 
be caused to the accused or his 
dependants but not whether tbe 
award of legal aid would be in 
the interest of justice. 

In summary cases, there had 
always been doubts as to bow far 
the courts trying cases should be 
involved in awarding or refusing 
legal aid on interests of justice 
pounds. There was, accord- 
ngly, a good case for transfer- 
ring responsibility from them. 
His understanding was that this 
would be welcomed by -many -' 
sheriffr. : 

There had been concern that 
this might sometimes cause 
delay in court business. Hence 
foe Government was paying 
special attention to the need to 
reduce to a minimum the time 
taken for submission and 
consideration of applications. 
The board should be able to deal 
with urgent applications in days. 

The need for an independent 
board had been generally sup- 
ported in consultations. He was 
cenain, no. that a- board with' 
knowledge or experience of 

information technology, 
management airi administra- 
tion, consumer and sotialafiairs 
and law and court procedures 
would be better qualified to 
administer legal ant arrange- 
ments than a body. consisting 
mainly or entirely of lawyers. 

People in custody would re- 
ceive automatic legal aid until 
foe conclusion of foe first diet at 
which a plea of jguiltyornot 
guilty was tendered. Tn cases 
where the accused was in cus- 
tody and pleaded guilty, be 
would be entitled to automatic 
kxafaid up ter the final -disposal 
of his case," Where tfienecused 
re m ained in canody after a not 
guilty plea at the first diet, he 
would be entitled to receive legal 
aid from the time he submitted 
an application until the applica- 
tion had been determined. This 

its own consideration of the 
financial and other (factors. The 
Government would bring for- 
ward in committee an amend- 
ment to spdl out factors to be 
taken into account in consid- 
ering whether tbe interests of 
justice criterion was met 

Tbe main aims of foe changes 
were to achieve greater consis- 
tency in tbe award oflegal aid to 
increase foe efficiency, effective- 
ness and economy ofthe 
and to eliminate the 
of abuse. 

Mr Donald Dewar, chief 
stion spokesman on Sooi 
said there was a case for 
sane there was no conflict __ 
interest or apparent conflict of 
interest. This should always be 
avoided. There was certainly an 
argument for the transfer ottiris 
responsibility to an independent 

legal aid board for Scotland and 
he therefore gave bis broad 
support to the key proposal in 

foe BilL 

should help to avoid delay in the 
p r epa rati on of cases. 

As at present, solicitors would 
be able to provide adivoe and. 
assistance to those charged with 
an offence, where an accused 
being dealt with under summary 
proceedings was not in custody. 
The intention was. that criminal 
legal aid should be available in 
general after fo* twH 

pled not guilty at foe first diet. 
For other proceedings it was 
proposed to introduce 

lance by way of representation 

-Where fo** pleaded 

guilty at. tbe first diet he would 
receive ABWOR*. if . certain 
requ ire m en ts were met tip to' tbe 
final disposal of foe case. Tbe 
intention was that the decision 
whether ABWOR should be 
'ided should rest,' initially at 
. with the solicitor who 
would have to satisfy 
that the applicant was finan- 
cially eligible and tha foe 
epro vision of ABWOR was 
justified, in accordance., with 
prescribed criteria. 

Those who pleaded not guilty 
at the first dietwould mala*, their 

application to foe board: Tbe 
board would issue its decision t& 
t he lig ht of any recommends-. 

But the Opposition had some 
doubts ana be moved an 
amendment which declined to 
give a second reading to a Bfll 
which did not adequately' safe- 
guard the independence of the 
proposed Scottish Legal Aid 
Board, provided no satisfactory 
appeal procedure for an ap- 
pticaot refused legal aid, and 
offered no effective guarantee 
that tbe right ofthe individual 
citizen to legal r epresentation in 
the civil and criminal courts 
would not be eroded under the 
Government’s policy of public 
expenditure restraint by the use 
powers given to the 
of State for Scotland 
to regulate such matters by 

He recognized foe case for 
consistency of approach in the 
courts in granting legal aid and 
was aware of tbe proper anxi- 
eties during foe miners’ strike 
about. tbe differences. If there 
was to be consistency of

Instead, die society pro- 
poses In n. paper published 
yesterday that magistrates 
should haye the. power .to 
decide whether there were 
good reasons for a particular 
case to be tried by jury. 

Tbe .paper said legislation 
“to stem the mass of 
unmeritorious cases . being 
committed to the Crown court 
is overdue” and added that 
tbe new Grown Prosecution 
Service would be seriously 
hampered if money had to be 
spent on cases “which do not 
merit Crown court trials”. 

At least half the cases in 
which defendants elected .jury 
trial became ideas of guilty, 
the society said. 

Those defendants chose 
jury trial because they wanted 
to postpone a custodial sen- 
tence which they saw as 
inevitable, or because they 
were already subject to some 
kind of suspended sentence or 
court order. 

The paper said tbe right to 
elect to be tried before a jury - 
may be reasonable and primer. 
“What cannot be reasonable, 
proper or justifiable is for 
persons who have no inten- 
tion, and have never had any 
intention, of pleading not 
guilty, and therefore requiring 
Ute examination of their case 
by a jury, electing to be tried 
on indictment.”

M6 slip road trial 
for traffic lights 

By Craig Seton 

The first trial in Britain of 
traffic lights to control the flow 
of vehicles on to a motorway 
received a cautious welcome 
when it went into operation 
yesterday at a jmethra of the 
M6 in the Midlands. 

The six-month trial is 
ce ntr e d on the sfip road lead- 
pig on to the southbound 
carriageway of the motorway 
at Junction 10 at Walsall, 
which has been described as 
one iff the busiest junctions in 

The traffic lights have been 
installed on a gantry three- 
quarters of the way down fee 

They are finked to a com- 
puter at a traffic control centre 
and which is programmed to 
regulate the traffic entering 

the motorway during tbe 
morning rush boor, when 
southbound motorway traffic 
has been monitored at the rate 
of 6,000 vehicles an hour. 

Electronic sensors bidden in 
the motorway surface relay 
information to tbe computer 
about the speed and flow of 
traffic on tbe southbound car-

Ruling aids battle for listed buildings 

Westminster City Council 
won High Court support yes- 
terday in its battle against the 
increasing number of thefts of 
valuable architectural items 
from listed buildings. 

Lord Justice Watkins and 
Sir Roger Ormrod ruled that 
tbe removal of highly prized 
features from buildings listed 
fin--, preservation was - an 
“absolute” criminal offence. 

This removes from the 
council, as prosecuting au- 
thority; foe need to prove that 

people found taking items 
from buidlings knew the 
buildings were listed and that 
they were committing a crimi- 
nal offence. 

The ruling will also help 
local authorities which have a 
duty to protect buildings pre- 
served for their historical and 
rarhitectural- merit. - 

Lord Justice Watkins said 
Westminster council had for 
some time been concerned by 
the large number of thefts 
from its 9,000 listed buildings. 

To stop the thefts, the 
council prosecuted Mr Brian 
Martin, of a company called 
Amazing Grates, who was 
discovered with others taking 
away chimney pieces, pan- 
elled doors and staircase 
bal us trading from 42 and 43 
Wimpole Street 
Mr Marlin was charged- 
under section 55 (1) of the 
Town and Country Planning 
Act. 1971. which makes it an 
offence to demolish or remove 
features from listed buildings 

without authority. 

But Mr Edward Branson, 
the Wells Street stipendiary 
magistrate, found in April last 
year th3i there was no evi- 
dence that Mr Martin knew 
the buildings were listed 
Lord Justice Watkins ruled 
that the magistrate was wrong 
in law. “We see no injustice »«L 
holding, as we do. that ibis, 
offence is an absolute one.” 
The judge ordered the mag- 
istrate to continue hearing Mr 
Martin’s ca^e: 

Religious Affairs 

Roman Catholics in En- 
gland and Wales have moved a 
long way from the stereotype 
of unthinking obedience to the 
clergy, guilt-ridden consc- 
iences, and a superior attitude 
to other churches, according to 
a survey of present attitudes 
published today.' 

- The result .of a national 
consultation m whkban esti- 
mated one In twenty of the 
Roman Catholic population 
took part shows a great will- 
ingness to criticize church 
leaders bat also' a mood iff 
confidence and optimism 
about the church itself. 

Even though most of those

Roman Catholic organiza- 
tions, and were therefore like- 
ly to be among the most 
observant In religions practice, 
the majority were no longer 
prepared to define a “good 
Catholic” simply as one who 
went regularly to Mass. 

That was described as being 
“ideal, but not .absolutely 
esentiaUL. Roman -Catholics 
saw themselves as having 
emerged from a period of blind 
obedience to a .ranch deeper 
kind of faith. 

A significant proportion 
questioned the church's offi-

Very strong interest was 
expressed in church - unity. 

A characteristic comment 
was that Roman Catholics had 
begun to see themselves first

A big change had evidently

Mr Brian Bowyers, the Gen- 
eral Manager of Hertz here, 

- said yesterday that he had 
learnt of his company's unwit- 
ting involvement in the raid 

. after police notified him that 
the vehicles had been found

He said three vehicles used 
in the raid had been hired on 
Sunday at the Bulawayo air-

Sources, however, said Avis 
had also innocently hired two 
cars to the raiders. 

Speculation continues, but a 
reconstruction of the raiders' 

movements derived from a 
variety of sources suggests

Anger greets UN 
delay over rights 

From Alan McGregor, Geneva 

The decision to postpone to 
next year the annual August 
session of the UN human 
rights sub-commission has 
bom received with dismay 
and anger by non-government 
organizations (NGOs) work- 
ing in the human rights field. 

Meetings of the sub-com- 
mission and its woriring 
groups — dealing with indi- 
genous pwples, slavery and 
human rights violations, 
widely regarded as the most 
effective part of all UN h uman 
rights activities — have been 
cancelled as part of the UN ec- 
onomy drive. 

“About 80 per cent of infor- 
mation on violations reaching 
the UN comes through the 
sub-commission,” Mr Niall 
Macdermot, secretary general 
of the International Commis- 
sion of Jurists, said. “This is 
an across-the-board cat with- 
out assessing the merit of what 
is being excluded.” 

He said that while promo- 

tion of human rights was one 
of the main objectives of the 
UN, expenditure was slightly 
less than 1 per cent of its

Mr Martin Ennals, former 
director of Amnesty Interna- 
tional, described the cancella- 
tion as “absolutely disastrous 
in terms of the UN human, 
rights programme. The sub- 
commission is the one place 
where well-substantiated in- 
formation can be submitted to 
a proper forum in the UN, and 
has condemnation of govern- 
ments coming out. There will 
also be a lcnock-on effect in the 
main human rights commis- 
sion,” he said.

British EEC agenda 

Sir Geoffrey Howe, the

dency of the EEC Council of 
Minister's, which begins on Ju- 
ry I . with job creation and lib- 
eralization of trade at the too 
of the agenda. 

Speaking after a day of talks 
with M Jacques Delairs, presi- 
dent of die EEC Commission 
and other Commissi oners. Sir 
Geoffrey said the thrust of the 
programme was to “mobilize 
and energize the community 
to realize its foil potential for 
generating jots and prosperi- 
ty" . He said Britain was co-or- 
dinating this programme with

The EEC is preparing a 
‘meeting with Turkey for the

seek to give the EEC a 
convincing voice in world 
affairs, and said EEC respons- 
es to crises such as Libya and 
Chernobyl did not reflect bad-

showed the EEC was "firing 
on aU cylinders".

would pursue reform of the 
common agricultural, policy 
(CAP), with the beef regime as 
the next target for reform. He 
said the CAP was “not a

Contra setback 
as Contadora 
talks progress 

From Christopher Thomas, Washington 

- The Reagan Administr- 
ation's combative policy to* 
wards Nicaragua is under 
grave threat Senior officials 
and right-wing, Congressmen 
fear that some deft political 
moves by the Sandinista Gov. 
ernmem over’ the next few 
weeks could kiQ the Pres- 
ident’s attempts to escalate 
military aid to the beleaguered 

The divided and demor- 
alized fighters have all but 
collapsed as an effective guer- 
rilla force, and further denial 
of immediate .American aid 
may well precipitate their 
rapid demise, officials fear. 

The crisis has sparked a 
hitter, open feud between 
Pentagon hardliners and State 
Department moderates. The 
State Department has publicly 
taken issue with the Pentagon 
for releasing an internal mili- 
tary study which belittled 
current peace negotiations. 

. Pentagon hardliners retort- 
ed angrily, saying the State 
Department had seen the re- 
port some time ago and agreed 
with it. The white House 
quickly intervened to defuse 
the row, saying the Pentagon 
study was out of date anyway. 
.. The wrangle brings to the 
surface an intense dash of 
wills over immediate policy 
towards Nicaragua in view of 
surprising progress in the Cen- 
tral American peace talks, 
which has brought the isthmus 
to the brink of a settlement 
after three years of laborious 

Despite many statements to 
the contrary, the US has never 
given much credence to the 

talks, which are conducted 
under the. aegis of the 
Contadora nations of Colom- 
bia, Venezuela, Mexico and 

But many members of Con- 
gress are excited by the possi- 
bility of an imminent 
settlement. On Tuesday 101 
members urged Mr Reagan to 
support any peace deal that 
meets “legitimate security 
considerations” of the US. 

The negotiations have sud- 
denly reached a decisive junc- 
ture. Should an accord emerge 
by the self-imposed deadline 
of June 6, it might easily tip 
the scales against President 
Reagan in a vote due in 
Congress three days later on 
his request for SI 00 million 
(£65 million) for the rebels. 

Costa Rica, Guatemala, 
Honduras and El Salvador 
have all agreed the terms of a 
deal and Nicaragua is under 
immense pressure to foil in 
line. The Reagan Administra- 
tion is already attacking the 
possible peace plan on the 
ground that Nicaragua cannot 
be trusted to abide by it 

Nicaragua last weekend re- 
fused to sign the agreement 
because it would restrict the 
amount of weapons each 
country could hold. It argued 
that the limitations would 
undermine Nicaragua's fight 
against the Contras. 

Administration officials 
suspect that Nicaragua may 
sign only at the last minute 
with the' aim of making the 
greatest impact on next 
month's critical debate in the 
US Congress.

A spokesman for the Gov-

Sea and air attack on 
northern town as 
Tamil crisis continues 

While government helicop- 
ters and planes strafed and 
Jpmbed the coastal town of 
Vdvettihurai in Sri Lanka's 
Northern Province, Tamil 
separatist guerrillas blew up a 
cen *ent plant in the east in 
another day of violence 

Reports from Jaffna, 22 
nules from Vefvettihurai said 
the people of the town fled in 
fear as about 30 bomfls were 
dropped at the same time as 
Navy ships shelled the area. 
Toe number of casualties was 
not known as communica- 
tions were cut 

In Trwcomalee, on the 
eastern coast, guerrillas blew 
up the Mitsui cement plant, a 
joint venture between Japan 
and Sri Lanka. The guerrillas 
rounded up the security 
guards and placed bombs in 
the machinery, security 
sources said. 

" Meanwhile, in Colombo. 

From Vyttba Yapa, Colombo 

police have imposed a dusk- 
lo-dawn curfew at Slave Is- 
land. only a mile from the 
centre of the city, where a 
brawl between soldiers and 
civilians led to seven deaths 
on Tuesday. 

A soldier looking for a 
prostitute became involved in 
an argument with a couple 
and was stabbed, according to 
police. This led to more 
soldiers from the nearby army 
camp rushing to the area, 
which is dominated by Mus- 
lims. the country’s second 
largest minority. 

Two soldiers were among 
the seven dead, while four 
shops were set on fire. Traffic 
diversions led to large jams on 
major roads out of the city. 

in another incident, four 
servicemen were killed at 
Periyapall in the Eastern Prov- 
ince when they were attacked 
early yesterday by Tamil guer- 
rillas. Two others were seri- 
ously injured. 

In Parliament on Tuesday 
the Minister of National Secu- 
rity. Mr Lafrth Aihulatmudati, 
said that the Government was 
committed to apolitical solu- 
tion to the Tamil problem. 

He added, however “We 
cannot have a settlement if the 
entire objective is to use the 
Government of Sri Lanka as a 
whipping boy." 

Mr Athulatmudali was re- 
acting to a statement by the 
Indian Government which ex- 
pressed “grave concern at the 
massive use of force” in Jaffna 
by the Sri Lanka Government. 

He told Parliament the 
military action in Jaffna was 
in self-defence and criticized 
the Indian Government for 
not saying anything about the 
Liberation Tigers of Tamil 
Eelam, the strongest of the 
guerrilla groups, waging war 
on the Tamil Eelam Libera- 
tion Army. He said the Libera- 
tion Army had been prepared 
for a negotiated settlement

Hindu flight from

From Michael Haralyn, Delhi 

Every day in Punjab there 
are reports of two or three 
killings by armed terrorists. 
Yesterday the death of a 
shopkeeper was reported from 
J oil under district Another 
bod; was found in Amritsar 
with head wounds. 

The day before, four deaths 
were reported, including a 
school master and an orderly 
who were shot in a random 
burst of midday firing in a 
village. The same day a bomb 
went off at the home of a 
prominent Hindu. _ , 

The day before that, a bomb 
injured an elderly lady as it

the shoes of worshippers at 
different Sikh temples. 

He has been ordered to do so 
by the high priests of the 
Golden Temple of Amritsar 
whose authority was restored 
by his action in sending armed 
parcunititaiy police into the 
shrine to dear out extremist 
bands who had seized control. 

While Mr Smjit Singh thus 
atones for his good deed, there 
are reports that Hindus are 
beginning — if they can — to 
leave the state to seek haven in 
Delhi or the Hindu-dominated 
Pmriabi state of Haryana. _

appears normal, with fat loads 
of grain rambling to market

are mainly Sikhs, continue to 
believe that they are victims of

From Ian Murray 


Three of the four chairmen 
of Israel’s leading commercial 
banks, who were found guilty 
by a public commission of 
having caused a big share 
collapse in 1983, are trying to 
retain control of the country's 
banking system despite being 
told they should resign. 

Mr Rafeei Rccanau. of the 
Bank Discount, a private 
bank, has refused to resign, Mr 
Ernest Japhet of Bank Leumi. 
has stepped down but is ready 
to be reappointed to oversee 
his bank's international rela- 
tions. Mr Aharon Meir, of the 
United Mizrahi Bank, is likely 
to take over the economics 
department of the National 
Religious Party, which owns 
his bank, when he resigns. . 

Mr Giora Gazil, of the Bank 
Hapoalinv owned by the La- 
bour movement, has already 

Mr Moshe Mandelbaura, of 
the Bank of Israel, who was 
also asked to resign, has 
agreed to do so, but will be 
allowed., to -stay on until the 
end of the month in order to 
present the . bank's annual 
report. He is lobbying support 
within the Government for a 
senior official appointment 
Meanwhile, the Liberal Par- 
ty has criticized the commis- 
sion, saying it did not find tbe 
cause of the share collapse. ' 

Meanwhile, the Hindus, 
mainly traders and small in- 
dustrialists. are looking fur 
new sites for their workshops. 
The big men are setting up 
second oases as far afield as 
Bombay or Cakatta. Visitors 
to the state are given a 
commentary on tbe violence: 
“This is where so-and-so was 
shot . . . here so-and-so died.’' 

The Chief Minister is ac- 
cused of having hmnfliated 
himself by accepting punish- ! 
meat. The distinguished editor | 
of The Times of India doctor 
. that be has delivered himse lf 
bound hand and foot to extra- 
- c onstitu tional authority and 
his survival in office wfli 
henceforward be “a nominal 
affair* 1 . 

Mr Giritol Jain, the editor, 
says that the country is worse 
off than before the accord that 
brought elections and a Sikh 
Government to the state. 

“Then we could pin our 
hopes on die moderates,'* he 
said, adding darkly: “Now the 
moderate A kalis have been 
played out.” 

Members of Mr Rajiv 
Gandhi's Congress (I) Put; in 
Punjab have asked the central 
Government to step in to pot 
an end to the Hindu exodus, 
going to far as to softest the 
.Army might again be deployed 
to help. 

But tbe Chief Minister has 
also been praised for his 
submission to the high priests' 
punishment. Although he was 
entirely justified in ordering 
tbe paramilitary into the tem- 
ple, he has accepted the need 
for atonement to assuage (he 
feelings of tbe Sikhs thinking 
themselves and their religion 
again under attack. 

He is also undercutting the 
gang of dissident Akali politi- 
cians who left his Government 
or their party posts in protest 
against the police invasion of 
the temple. 

At one time the ptotting of ! 
eminent Sikhs looked distinct- 
ly threatening to Mr Sorjif 
Singh. Now the goodness and 
sweetness of disposition which 
radiates from the photographs 
of him cleaning shoes is doing 
him much good. 

It seems likely then that the 
Chief Minister will re-estab- 
lish his authority during the 
next Tew weeks. He will be 
helped in his task of fighting 
the terrorists by closer rela- 
tions with the centra] Govern- 
ment. which bas given charge 
of the Home Ministry to 
another Sikh, Mr Buta Slush.

49,64 per cent in the first

“All the world can see what 
Austria has made of its suffer- 
ing after 1945,” he said in the 
address to an invited audi-

tolerance and reconciliation.” 

Dr Waldheim called for the 
co-operation of all "positive 
forces . . . also co-operation of 
all minorities, which make up 
and enrich the cultural variety 
of our country. 

“I now expressly state: also

has become so small but 
important, which we would 
not want to miss by any means 
in our community. Their fore- 

bears have left indelible traces

ing came through the Nazis, 
above all for the Jews in the 
whole of Europe and also for 
our Jewish citizens in Austria. 

“When I condemn so decid- 
edly whai happened under the 
Nazis,” said Dr Waldheim, “it 
is for exactly the same reason i 
that l reject the defamations 
made against myself and 
against our country during 
recent months, with the same 
determination with which 1

did not know that those who 
do not want to learn from 
history are condemned to 
repeating it,” he said.

guarantee that there will be no

but by pledging to 'forgive but

with the passage of a Bill for

some of the imbalance be-

was passed by the House of 
Representatives and is expect- 
ed to be cleared through the 
upper house today, the last 
day of the Diet session.

Regina ▼ General Medical 
Council, Ex parte Gee 
Before Lord Justice Dillon. 
Lord iustioe Ltoyd and Lord 
Justice Nicholls 
[Judgment given May 19] 

A charge of serious pro- 
fessional misconduct, referred 
to the professional conduct 
committee of the General Medi- 
cal Council, and which related 
to the treatment of eight in- 
dividual patients constituted a 
single charge of a course of 
conduct ami was not bad for 

The Court of Appeal so held 
by a majority when allowing an 
appeal by the General Medical 
Council from the order of Mr 
Justice Mann { The Times 
November 3, 1985; [1986] 1 
WLR 22 6) granting the ap- 
plicant, Dr Sidney Gee, judicial 

review ot inter alia, the GMCs 
refusal to amend a charge of 
serious professional misconduct 
made against the applicant 

The charge alleged that the 
applicant bad abused his pro- 
: Sessional position as a medical 
practitioner by supplying in- 
dividual patients quantities of 
drags over extensive periods 
without (a) adequately examin- 
ing patients, (b) consulting or 
notifying the patients* general 
practitioners, (c) making ade- 
quate inquiries about the effect 
of the treatment on the patients* 
health, (d) offering advice on 

harmful effects of the drugs; and 

that in relation to the facts 
alleged he had been guilty of 
serious professional miscon- 

Particulars supplied identi- 
fied initially four, and sub- 
sequently a further four, 

Mr Vivian Robinson, QC and 
Mr Timothy Straker for the 
GMQ Mr Michael Bdoff QC 
and Mr Charles Flint for the 

said that the main question on 

the appeal was whether- the 
disciplinary proceedings against 
the applicant could proceed on 

the charge as at present for- 
mulated or whether that charge 
was bad for duplicity. 

The main reason a 
duplicitous charge was not al- 
lowed in a criminal case was 
that the jury could, in general, 
only give a simple verdict of 
guilty or not guilty on cadi 
charge in the indictment. 

Consequently, if a charge in 
truth embraced several charges, 
the jud^, when passing sen- 
tence, had no means of knowing 
on which cha rges the jury had 
really convicted. 

All that, however, had no 
application to a disciplinary 
hearing before the professional 
conduct committee. The mem- 
bers of the com mittee who made 
the findings of feet were the 
same persons as would pass 
sentence if they had found 
serious professional misconduct 

In the context of the General 
Medical Counci] Preliminary 
Proceedings Committee ana 
Professional Conduct Commit- 
tee (Procedure) Rules (SI 1980 
No 858) the chairman's duty 
must cover announcing the 
determination of the commit- 
tee. in respect of each outstand- 
ing charge, as to which if any of 
the facts alleged in the charge 
had been proved. 

Even if. therefore, the charge 
was technically duplicitous, the 
practitioner would be told 
which parts of the dune, or 
which charges within die charge, 
had been found proved. 

The charge against the ap- 
plicant, as at present for- 
mulated, was in a 
comprehensive form, embrac- 
ing allegations in respect of eight 
patients in a single charge. 

The choice was between that 
single charge of a course of 
conduct in the respects set out in 
the sub-heads in the charge and 
eight separate charges, one in 

respect of each patient, as 
specimens from which a course 
of conduct in the respects set out 
in the sub-heads was to be 

His Lordship could not see 
that the difference between 
those alternatives would have 
any meaning to a tribunal such 
as the professional conduct 
committee which was composed 
of doctors and not lawyera. and 
whichever alternative was 
adopted would make no dif- 
ference at all to the course and 
scope of the hearing. 

His Lordship could see no 
reason why the GMC should not 
be entitled to lay a charge of a 
course of conduct. The form of 
the charge, road with the 
particulars given and ordered to 
be given, was neither confusing 
nor unfair. 

It followed that the judge was 
not justified in ruling that the 
charge as formulated was bad 
for duplicity. 

If the charge stood as for- 
mulated it was not necessary for 
there to be any further reference 
to the preliminary proceedings 
committee. The case was the 
same case of a course of 
conduct, and the addition of 
four further patients by way of 
additional particulars made no 

dissenting, said that, accepting 
that the procedure on inquiries 
into professional misconduct by 
the GMC was not exactly analo- 
gous to procedure on indictment 
and that the rale against duplic- 
ity could not be exactly applied, 
the reasons underlying the rule 
were the same for both cases. 

Those reasons were that to 
charge what were essentially two 
separate offences in the same 
count was both confuting and 
unfair. The rule against dupjio- 
ity was not a legal technicality, 
and. in his Lordship’s judgment, 
it was applicable to proceedings 
before the professional conduct 

In the present case, where the 
eight patients were all particu- 
larized and where some of the 
allegations related to some pa- 
tients and not others, his Lord- 
ship was in no doubt that the 
misconduct alleged in relation 
to each of the patients should 
have been foe subject of a 
separate chaise. 


NICHOLLS said that he ap- 
proached the fiuestion of what 
factual allegations might prop- 
erly be included in a single 
charge of serious professional 
misconduct on the premise, 
which bis Lordship accepted, 
that, as a rale of elementary 
fairness, the rule of the criminal 
law that a charge should not be 
duplicitous should apply by 

The GMC submitted that 
properly construed the charge 
laid was one alleging a course of 
conduct If the misconduct al- 
leged was a practice said to have 
beeh followed by the prac- 
titioner in the conduct of ms 
professional work, bis Lordship 
did not see why the charge 
should not be so formulated, as 
a tingle charge, even though a 
properly particularized state- 
ment of the practice might 
involve identifying several dif- 
ferent patients ana several dif- 
ferent occasions. 

It had to be said that the 
present charge was noi happily 
drafted. The use of the word 
“individual” was inap p ropriate 
to a course of conduct 

In the end, however, the 
charge could fairly be read as 
alleging a course of conduct 
adopted by the applicant in the 
conduct of his practice. The 
court would not be justified in 
requiring the present charge to 
be abandoned and in place eight 
separate charges formulated.

Kot and Others v Morris 
Before Lord Justice Dillon, 
Lord Justice Lloyd and Lord 
Justice Nicholls 
[Judgment given May 15] 

A covenant in a partnership 
agreement between doctors 
practising in the National 
Health Service which restricted 
an outgoing partner from 
practising within a two-mile 
radius of the partnership 
premises for two years was not 
invalid or void as being contrary 
to public policy. 

The Court of Appeal so held 
in allowing an appeal by the 
plaintiffs. Dr Aubrey Kerr. Dr 
W illiam Muza and.Dr Graham ■ 
Parker, from the refusal of Mr 
Justice Falconer on February 
13, 1986, to grant them an 
interlocutoru injunction 
restraining the defendant. Dr 
Anthony Morris, from carrying 
on the profession of general 
medical practitioner within a 
radius of two miles from 7 
Ladysmith Avenue, 

-Brightlingsea, Essex. 

Mr Francis Ferris, QC and Mr 
Frank Hinks for the plaintiffs; 
Mr Ian Craxford for the defen- 
dant . 

said that the appeal concerned a 
dispute between NHS general 
medical practitioners who were 
formerly in practice together at 
7 Ladysmith Avenue. 


The parties entered into a 
partnership agreement in March 
1984, and clause 34 of that 
agreement, which the plaintiffs 
were now seeking to enforce, 
provided that no former partner 
should for two years fallowing 
his retirement or expulsion from 
the partnership carry on the 
profes s ion of general medical 
practitioner within two miles of 
the partnership premises. 

In the latter part of 1984 
difficulties arose between the 

defendant and the other three 
partners, and. following a meet- 
ing in January 1985, on Feb- 
ruary 14. 1985. the defendant 
was served with a notice under 
clause 32(1) of the partnership 
agreement requiring him to 
retire from the partnership in 12 
months “for the reason that we 
consider that the trust necessary 
between partners has been 
breached bv you." 

In November 1985 die defen- 
dant purchased I Ladysmith 
Avenue, and made it plain that 
be wanted to practise from there 
without waiting two years to do 


The judge refused the plain- 
tiffs interlocutory relief on the 
basis that be should follow 
Hensman v Traill (The Times 
October 22, 1980). 

There, Mr Justice Bristow 
held that “it is not possible to 
regard a p artn ership restriction 
which might lead to a doctor 
being prevented by law from 
giving patients the care winch he 
is obliged under the National 
Health Service to give them as 
other than contrary to tire basic 
concept of the National Health 
Service and so contrary to 
public policy and 

“The scheme of the health 
service in respect of general 
medical services was that each 
doctor had his own list of 
patienfa. The sale of goodwill in 
a medical practice was probib- 

WTthin limitations a patient 
had a right to the doctor of his 
choice. Under the scheme a 
doctor was obliged to provide 
medical treatment to panents on 
his iisL 

But the scheme recognized the 
existence of partnerships and it 
was provided that doctors in a 
partnership might treat each 
other's patients. 

An inevitable consequence of 
having a partnership agreement 

was that capitation fees were 
partnership assets. 

A doctor could give notice at 
any time to withdraw bis name 
from the medical list It fol- 
lowed that a doctor was free to 
go at any time from the area. 
The patients bad no right to 
require him to stay in order to 
continue to treat them. 

There fore , there could be no 
objection on the ground of 
public policy or interest to a 
doctor resigning from a partner- 
ship thereafter being under a 
reasonable restriction as be- 
tween himself and his former 
partners in the terms of danse 

it was -submitted that the 
restraint covenant was only 
valid in so far as it protected a 
legitimate interest of the 
continuing partners, that foe 
interest being protected was an 
interest in the goodwill of tbe- 
business and that as foe sale of 
goodwill was now illegal the 
whole foundation for holding 
the restraint enforceable fell 

Whether a partnership was in 
existence when the National 
Health Service came in or was 
created later, goodwill in the 
sense oflhe tendency of patients 
whom partners bad treated to 
resort to the practice for further 
treatment had to remain one of 
the most valuable, albeit not 
saleable, assets on which the 
livelihood of the partners de- 

A further point taken was that 
foe entering into various cov- 
enants in the partnership deed 
was valuable consideration such 
that there was a deemed sale of 
goodwill under paragraph 2(2) 
of Schedule 10 to the National 
Health Service Act 1977. 

The court was only concerned 
with the restraint covenant and 
foe answer to that was to be 
found in paragraph 2(4) and (5). 
Sub-paragraph (4) seemed to be 

Parish trustees 9 power 
to protect property 

Taylor ▼ Masefield and An- 

.Before Lord Justice May and Sir 
Denys Buckley 
[Judgment given May 20] 

The parish trustees ofa parish 
which did not have a parish 
council could uke steps, includ- 
ing commencing and maintain- 
ing, proceedings, to protect 
parish property without express 
authorization from the parish 

The Court of Appeal so held 
in a reserved judgment, dismiss- 
ing an appeal by foe defendants, 
Kir John Masefield and Mrs 
Blanda Masefield, from an order 
of Judge King at, Weymouth 
County Court who on Septem- 
ber 2. 1985. had granted the 
plaintiff Mr Michael Benjamin 
Taylor, one of the AskersweU 
Parish Trustees, a declaration 
that certain land belonged to the 
Parish of AskersweU and not to 
the defendants. 

Section 13(4) of foe Local 
Government Act 1972 provides: 
“The parish trustees of a parish 
[not haring a separate parish 
council] shall act in accordance 
with any directions given by the 
parish meeeting.” 

Mr H. Jonathan Barnes for 
the defendants; Mr William 
Coley for the plaintiff 

that foe defendants would not 
be permitted now to take the 
point foal the proper plaintiff 
was the AskersweU Parish Trust- 
ees. rather than Mr Taylor, since 
if that point bad been taken 
below it could have been cured 
by amendment. 

The defendants had argued 
that section 13(4) of foe 1972 
Act empowered foe parish trust- 
ees to act only in accordance 
with directions of the parish 
meeting; they were a statutory 
corporation (created by section 
13(3}) and foeir powers could 
therefore be derived only from 
statute, and on a true construc- 
tion of the 1972 Act they were 
constituted to serve as the 
repository of the title to parish 
property and to execute any 
neccssaiy deeds or instruments 
of transfer. 

In his Lordship's judgment, 
section 13(4) left parish trustees 

their trust which did not conflict 
with any direction by the parish • 

That construction more ac- 
curately reflected foe precise 
language used in section 13(4), 
and there was nothing in foie 
other provisions of the Act 
relating to foe constitution, 
functions and proceedings of 
parish meetings and parish 
trustees which suggested that foe 
defendants* construction should 
be p r e f e rred. 

Moreover, that was foe more 
beneficial construction of the 
subsection. It might be dis- 
advantageous if parish trustees 
could not initiate action for the 
protection of parish property 
vested in them without first 
seeking and obtain inga formal 
direction from foe parish meet- 

liad foe predecessor of sec- 
tion 13(4), section 47(4) of the 
Local Government Act 1933. 
been re-enacted in respect of 
parish trustees, requiring them 
to act “in ail respects” in the 
manner directed by the parish 
meeting, the defendants* 
construction would have been 
more plausible. 

The absence of such words in 
section 1 3(4) supported foe view 
that Parliament's intention had 
been to avoid foe possibilxtyofii 
being thought that section 1 3(4) 
did more than require the parish 
trustees to cany out all direc- 
tions of the parish meeting. 

Accordingly the plain tm did 
not lack authority to bring the 
proceedings. Since the evidence 
before the judge bad been fully 
sufficient to justify his finding, 
the appeal should be dismissed. 

Lord Justice May agreed.

In Ashton and Others v 
Sobeiman ( The Times May 20) 
counsel for Ashton was Mr 
David Burton not Mr Jonathan 

in Rv Governor of Peruonvillc 
Prison and Anoth&. Ex parte 
Herbage ( The Times May 21), 
.counsel for the andicanl were 


plainly directed to a covenant 
for restraint oftrade and by sub- 
paragraph (5), sub-paragraph (4) 
did not apply to anything done 
in pursuance of a partnership 

What was co v ered by sub- 
paragraph (4) could not be 
illegal under paragraph 2(2). 

Accordingly, the point that 
there had been a sale of foe 
goodwill failed. In Hensman v • 
Traill Mr Justice Bristow had 
held that equivalent provisions 
rendered the restriction sought 
to be imposed in that case 
unenforceable. His Lordship 
would overrule Hensman v 
Traill on both points. 

The defendant’s final pant 
was that a notice of expulsion 
could only be given for reason- 
able cause ana after giving foe 
partner concerned a hearing. 

Clause 32(2) provided that 
any notice under the clause 
“shall specify foe reason for 
which it is given”. Prima facie it 
might be raid wnb some force 
that if partners were giving 12 
months' notice they had to 
specify a reason and that, there- 
fore, they had to have a reason. 

They did in fact specify a 
reason and it had to be taken 
that they honestly believed it 
since foeir good faith had not 
been Questioned. The question 
at trial might come to whether 
they were justified in foeir 

It seemed, therefore, that the 
question in foe appeal was one 
of foe balance of convenience. 
The matter was very finely 
balanced but lay in favour of 
granting an injunction provid- 
ing the plaintiffs undertook not 
to apply for permission to bring 
a fourth partner into the practice 
before trial. 

Lord Justice Lloyd and Lord 
Justice Nicholls delivered 
concurring judgments.

When' the covers aro drawn 
back at Wimbledon at the end

strong -possibility that tests 
will be introduced there, too. 

Few of tennis’s experienced 
insiders believe there is wide- 
spread use of cocaine, even 
among the game’s richest, 
most - hedonistic celebrities. 
But none can axgite convinc- 
ingly that tennis enjoys special 
protection: .from foe .same 
corruption that has infiltrated 
a growing number of other 
sports--.;:;.. «: r * '. 

“There isa strong feding on

have been involved 1 in- so-

that most of tennis is dean“. 

The Men’s International 
Professional Tennis Council 
decided -last year to introduce 
tests at two of this, year's 
tournaments. None have, yet 
been carried out, and only 
three tournaments remain — 
the French Open, Wimbledon, 
and foe -US Open. The tests 
involve laboratory analysis of 
urine :tests,-.which can detect 
the presence of the drug up to 
■24 hours after use. 

Cocaine may usually be 
thought of as a recreational 
drug, more likely to be found 
at exclusive parties than in 
athlete's locker rooms. Bui its 
properties could also have an 
afreet on competitive perfor- 
mance. “There is no question 
that it improves alertness", 
says Dr David Cowan, asso-

If politics is the art of the possible;' 
then political verse is an almost 
-impossible art whoever heard ofa 
lync onthe. nature of ctenprranis* 
or an efeor to pragmatism? But S 
feet there is a tradmon of just such 

Peter Acfcroyd reviews a book that shows how politics 
gets into everything, even the songs of the poets 

— - 

•‘by all^ory. or wroviadTiTS 
mem of Tom Paulin s new antholo- 
gy that it emphasizes the neglected 

aspects, of poets who are generally 
regarded as “immortal**- andtbeni 
.routine business of 
hfe. Buf if man is a political animal 
there ts no reason, why the songs of 
Apollo- should not sometimes issue 
from tbe.lrps of partisans. 

And so. m his interesting introduc- 
tion, Paulin rightly discounts the 
jheorx that “an” and “potties” are 
mutually exclusive occupations, and 
that a poem is a free floating agent 
-which- by some mirade has been cut 
'loose from social, historical, or 
biographical realities. This was a 
.( 'modem heresy inaugurated by 
■ T-S-Efiot, endorsed by LA. Richards, 
?. -and subsequently institutio nalize d 
-by a yariety of mulish academic 
t.l critics. But there are no electrified 
t fences between the world and the 
.. poem: as Paulin says memorably 
here, " —pofiucs is like a rain-storm 
that catches us all in its wet noise" 
-'This of course poses .peculiar 
. problems for an anthologist since h‘ 
means,. of implies, that aB kinds of 
._*! poetry can be interpreted as express- 
ing political awareness — any poem 
v without- an overt kieological stance 
might be described as conservative 
for example, and even the most 
^ hermetic lyricist, concerned with 
?“ Love and Death, could be diagnosed 
' as a purblind supporter of the status 

rven tins difficulty, a diffi- 
.dent editor would proba- 
bly only have included 
those poems that are di- 
rectly and overtly engaged with 
political realities — certainly they 
comprise a long list, stretching from 
anonymous Thirteenth-Century lyr- 
ics thnough Dryden and on to Pound. 
Tom PauHn has adopted a broader 
attitude, however, which in practice 
has meant that he is happy to include 
poenis that appeal to him for a 
variety of reasons; thus we have 
twelve pages of John Gare, whose 
“To the Snipe" could be described as

Perhaps as a protest agamst blood- 
sports? ■ 

• But Panfto does have a theoretical 
P e * rs pective to lend a certain coher- 
em* to this heterogeneous selection; 

.in bis - introduction be 
distinguishes between a . broadly 
conservative** or "monarchical" 
tradition and: a "puritan** or 
“republican’’ one— thus Droten and 
Mflton, Jonson uni Blake; Biot and 
Lawrence, can be. seen us resisting 

each other in endless battle rather 
than resting together in the quietus 
of a putative “great tradition”. As a 
theory n has the merit of simplicity, 
but unfortunately ft avoids what 
might be described as the problem of 
belief; aptly summarized in the 
expression that the truest poetry » 
the most feigning. 

The problem is best- stated by tire 
poets themselves. It was Thomas 
Chatierton who once said that he 
held in contempt any man who coukl 
not write on both sites of a 
controversy — a fluency emphasized 
by the American poet, Kari Shapiro, 
who maintained that he wrote as a 
Christian on one day and as a Jew on 
the next It is in this context, of 
course, that “poUtics” is best seen as 

an extension of aesthetics -since tire 
overriding aim of the poet is to 
create significant form, be or she will 
entertain almost any belief in rater 
to nsidi that happy stale. Eliot was 
.not really a “monarchist*', despite 
the enormous cufr&ra 1 weight he is 
forced to carry mPhuiin’s mtroduo- 
tion as an emblem of conservative 
pessimism- He was not really a 
monarchist because he was never 
. really anythin* In any case, if the 
history, of modernism teaches as 
anything it is that the greatest 
“conservatives” are also the greatest 
poetic revolutionaries. What is the 
politics of that situation? . 

But. if Paulin's theory has the' 
virtue of simplicity it also has the 
further merit, for an anthologist, of 
wide applicability.. This book begins 
with Dame mid ends with Miroslav 
Holub, : including Ecclesiastes and 
“Please to remember the Fifth -of 
November** en route; In feet the . 
choice is edectic to the point of' 
oddness. There are 36 pages of. 
Marvell for example, and only two 
pages of Shelley; and, if there was 
room for 27 pages of Dryden's 

available, elsewhere), surely a 

space could' have been Sound for 
Rochester’s famous 
God bless our good and gracious 
.. King. 

. Whose promise none relies on; 

It is easy to play the game of 
omissions, bm it is a necessary task 
with an - anthology that at. least 
aspires- to being authoritative. Why, 
for example, is Thomas Hood omit- 
ted? His “The Song of the Shirt” was 
arguably- the most important,. and 
certainly the most popular, ^political 
verse of the last century. Elizabeth 
Barren Browning's “The Cry of tire- 
Children” might share the palm with 
it but she, too, is not to be found 
here Nor is CTabbe. ~ " 

B m surety tire most significant 
absence is* that of Ezra 
Pound? There is not one 
word by or about him here, 
although he is without doubt the 
most important political poei of the 
Twentieth Century. 

Some omissions are necessary and 
even instructive as an index of 
feshionabte- taste. It is easy to 
understand why Paulin has avoided 
all foe “beat” and “bomb culture” 
poetry of the Sixties and- early 
Seventies; unfortunately, however,, 
be has included some eqnally dubi- 
ous material ofa later date; and one 
has only to look at recent Irish verse, 
over-generously represented here, to 
realize that the pressure of political 
events is no guarantee' of poetic 
merit — of even of poetic interest. As 
a result this anthology, to paraphrase 
the words of a former " m on ar chist" 
Faber editor, begins with a bang and 
ends with a whimper — or, rather, a 
yawn. The notes are random and 
cryptic; the textual apparatus . 
have foe spellings been various! 
modernized, haIfimodenii 2 ed, or

Dale Spender has set out to 
show in Mothers of the Novel 
just how -many women novel- 
ists there were before Jane 
Austen. She is c on cerned with 
quantity as well as quality, 
and in her list of 106 novelists 
and 568 novels from the 
middle 17th to middle L9th 
centuries there are titles one 
might not be in a rush to 
rediscover ( Arnold Zulip A 
Swiss Story springs to mind). 
But foe makes out a good case 
for a long, largely unrecog* 
razed, tradition of women's 
writing which Jane Austen 
drew on rather than instigated; 
and in her analysts of women’s 
dawning sense of the possibili- 
ties that novel writing brought 
them foe is always interesting, 
even at times inspired. 

What son of novels were 
these early women writing? 
One has to be reminded that 
when lath' Mary Wroath, foe 
earliest of all was embarking 
on Urania, published m 1621, 
foe novel as now understood - 
did not exist at all What she 
did was to retell an old story of 
her unde’s. Her unde bring 
Sir Philip Sidney. , the stray 
'was Arcadia. But into it foe 
built her own substructure, a 
succession of sub-plots wftlch^. 
Dale Spender mgnes, are high- 
ly innovative and womanly in 
tenor, realistic in their detail- 
ing. with a. kind of female 
candour that leads us directly 
to Austen and beyond. 

There are vigorous descrip- 
tions m Mathers of ihe NOm 
of the lengths to wmch women 
went to pursue the art when 
novel-writing was not an ac- 
cepted, far less a respected, 
occupation, and when most 
women's days were so dome* 1 
tically citywded it was difficult 
to fit it in.

" The boundaries of fact and 
fiction soon ^blurred. It can 

be.seen,aUiiringly, how wom- 

completely credible. Margaret 
Cavendish, otherwise “Mad

widow of the Duke of Newcas- 
tle, wrote an ostensible mem- 
oir of. her husband packed 
with romantic detail soaring 
into realms of fiction. She was 
also an early science fiction 
writer, author of a novd 
which was. needless to say. 
attacked for scientific inaccu- 
racy, called The Description of 
a Blazing New World. 

The robustness and profes- 
sionalism of so many early 
woman writers is something 
pale Spender brings out very 
clearly. These were popular

The rebel in the hot seat

So I was right A month ago 
nobody used the name Kenneth 
Baker m the same sentence as the 
words "Education Secretary**. 
Then on April 28 I revealed that 
insiders believed that after 18 
months wrestling with local gov- 
ernment Baker was bent on 
promotion. After that die specula- 
tion did not stop — until 
yesterday's announcement Mean- 
while. at Marsbam Street even as 
the news broke. Baker's successor 
at the Department of the Environ- 
ment Nicholas Ridley, was taking 
the lift up to his new office, and, as 
ever, puffing hard on a cigarette I 
now predict that Ridley’s chain 
smoking will Jead to an early 
conflict with his under secretary. 
Sir George Young. A fanatical 
ami-tobaccoist. Sir George hpme

been known to instruct visiting

It is sad to see Oxford University 
going the way orthe Greys, but the

their duty. All 12,000 junior 
members of the university are 
being warned against the cham- 
pagne-spraying and egg-throwing 
antics which bring city centre 
traffic to a standstill every June. 
The proctors, those drab custodi- 
ans of adult mores in a world of 
late adolescence, inform the 
undergrads that such celebrations 
cannot be defended by the invoca- 
tion of tradition. I am not entirely 
happy with that, even though I 
cannot take issue with the next 
point, that the festivities strain the 
already difficult relations between 
gown and town. This year the 
police will be on hand to damp 
downany outbreaks of over-exu- 
berance at the 20-odd post-exam 
junkets as the third-years spill

Get away! 

Sir Eldon Griffiths, Tory MP and 
Police Federation consultant, told 
delegates at the federation's con- 
ference in Scarborough that a few 
days after retrieving his stolen car 
from the Met he was flagged down 
by a motorcycle copper who 
accused him of not having a tax 
disc. Sir Eldon suggested that it 
must have been removed by police 
while dusting the car for finger 
prints. That cut little ice with the 
constable who contacted the po- 
lice and told Sir Eldon be was 
driving a stolen car suspected of 
involvement in an armed bank 


It is taken for granted everywhere 
that Kenneth Baker’s move from 
the Department of the Environ- 
ment to Education is a promotion, 
and in practical terms it is. But 
this attitude marks bow flu- esteem 
for the Department of the 
Environment has fallen since the 
days when Crosland, Heseltine 
and their like presided at that great 
department of state, and it seemed 
to be the power house of regenera- 
tion for inner city and countryside 

A department’s political stand- 
ing at any given time depends on 
whether the tasks it has in band 
are seen to matter. Today a 
diminished glamour surrounds 
the selling of the waterworks and 
dismantling the ~ rates, while 
education is full of promise, 
challenge and political "sex 
appear. But the new Secretary of 
State may find his ability to 
influence events there even more 
frusiratingly limited becauseof the 
structure of the organization of 
our schools. 

As a conoisseur of the machin- 
ery of government. Baker will 
appreciate the problems of making 
himself effective in spite of the 
obstacles built into his role. This 
kind of thing has always intrigued 
him. As parliamentary private 
secretary to Edward Heath in 
Downing Street in the early 1 970s, 
he devoted much fruitless effort to 
creating a Prime Minister’s 
Department, designed to save 
future governments from just the 
kind or hand-to-mouth unprov- 
ization that has afflicted the 
Thatcher government lately. 

George Hill traces Kenneth Baker’s rise 
from Heath ally to Mrs Thatchers 
choice as overlord of education in crisis 

For an MP so dosefy associated 
with Heath, and one who stood by 
him to the end, leading his 
campaign team in the 1974 party 
leadership contest, the road bade 
to favour under Thatcherism was 
not an easy one. Nor did be put 
himself out to curry favour. In 
1975 he made a point of espousing 
the cause of proportional rep- 
resentation, to avoid the domina- 
tion of the country by "a minority 
of a majority" — not a theme to 
ingratiate him with the new party 

In seconding the Loyal Address 
in 1975 -already a mark of 
progress towards rehabilitation — 
he pledged himself to pursue a 
path between "sycophancy and 
rebellion”. In practice there was 
less and less sign of rebellion after 
that. But a certain coolness per- 
sisted for some years, and be was 
passed over for a government job 
UI 1979. 

But one thing that he and Mrs 
Thatcher share is an enthusiasm 
for new technology, and in 1981 
he was made Minister for 
Information Technology — a pot- 
entially meretricious post which 
he himself had suggested should 
be created — and he threw himself 
with a win into promoting all 
thin gs sparkling and new. He was 
rewarded with promotion into the 

dilapidated stately home of the 
Department of the Environment 
in 1984, where he gave backing to 
Patrick Jenkin's melancholy 
exploration of the limitations of 
central authority over local gov- 

He stepped into Jenkin’s shoes 
in 1985, but in spite of his 
»m failing air of slightiy- unctions 
good cheer he failed to dispel the 
shadow which the traumas of the 
Jenkin period had cast over the. 

Nobody can have any doubts 
about where yesterday’s other 
principal reshuffle beneficiary, 
Nicholas Ridley, stands on the 
scale of wetness and dryness. He is 
as crisp as a biscuit Baker’s 
political stance is less clearly 
marked, and though this may 
partly be because it is more 
prudent to cover over signs of 
wetness hi a party climate where 
tolerance is not is ample supply, it 
is also because his mind is -of a 
managerial rather than an ideo- 
logical cast His indefetigably 
bland and contented air un- 
questionably masks the capacity 
for hard work which is essential 
these days as a senior minister, but 
it is also testimony to the lack of 
any strong instinct of crusading 
aggression — the spirit which 
turns issues into causes^ 

He was bom in 1 934 in Newport 
on the edge of Wales and was 
educated at St Paul's School and 
Oxford (a city whose shreds of 
remaining beauty he took much 

satisfaction in s afeguard i ng last 

month by imposing restrictions on 
further development). He went up 
to university after National Ser- 
vice, during which he helped to lay 
the foundations of the Gadaffi war . 
machine by serving as artillery 
‘instructor to the Libyan army. A 
proteg£ of lain Madeod, he air 
tered the Commons with 6dat at a 
by-election in 1968 and immedi- 
ately began a campaign to cut 
taxation by 5 per cent, a proto- 
Thaicberite gesture. He tost his 
seat at the 1970 general election, 
but hugely through Madeotfs 
influence was selected to fight the 
safe seal of St Marytebone when 
Lord Hailsham was re-enobled as

ways personally exercised great 
restraint. But perhaps the book isa

Sarah Hogg on the problem of getting public spending just right 

A deft hand on the pump 

The Chancellor had his own 
message waiting for Mrs 
Thatcher’s reshuffled cabinet 
"Spend a bit more here, a bit more 
there”, Nigel Lawson warned 
darkly last night "and pretty soon 
it Wold not be a question of how 
much taxes can come down: it 
would be a question of how much 
taxes have to go up." 

The Treasury has only just set in 
motion the official lawn-mower 
which prepares the ground for the 
annual spending tournament But 
all government departments have 
been asked to make their bids by 
the end of the month, with 
duplicates to the Prime Minister. 
Treasury and ministers alike are 
aware that this will be the last 
significant "spending round” of 
this, parliament Negotiations will 
set budgets for 1987-88 and, in 
pater outline, 1988-89. 

This round began with the 
Treasury holding some pretty 
strong cards. Last year (1985-86) it 
succeeded for the first time in this 
government's life in halting the 
rise in spending. In real terms — 
after allowing for inflation —pub- 
lic expenditure fdl for the first 
time since 1977-78. 

Tor the next two' years, the 
Treasury aims simply to hold the 
real level of spending constant 
The Treasury also thought it had 
succeeded in winning a. battle to 
make ministers take on res- 
ponsibility for this limited task. 
They have been requested to 
match new demands by sugges- 
tions for offsetting savings within 
the same department The idea 
was that departmental self-suf- 
ficiency would help to keep the 
total for next year within the 
planned limit of £144 billion, 
white reducing the need for an 
autumn free-for-all between min- 
isters, each defending his own 

. All this, of course, came before 
the change in political mood 
strengthened the hands of social 
service ministers. The chart shows 
what each government depart- 
ment could expect under existing 
plans, which run forward to 1988- 
89. The average increase in depart- 
mental budgets is only 6 per cent 
over three years. That is less than 
the expected rate of inflation, 
because some larger percentage 
increases are pencilled in for big 
programmes, particularly health 
and social security. 

Clustered at the cuts end of the 
scale are a number of small 
programmes, such as environ- 
mental spending. The biggest

ing a squeeze is the one which now 
seems to top Mrs Thatcher’s 
political agenda: education. 

In the new political climate, 
there is even less chance that 
ministers will all remain tamely 
within departmental limits. So the 
Treasury has three options. It can 
let the new lions in Mrs Thatcher’s 
cabinet out of their budget cages, 
penning back others to balance the 
figures. It can dig into the 
"reserve” — at present £6.3 bil-

agree to increase its planning total 
for public expenditure — some- 
thing it has not been forced to do 
during a "spending round” since 

During last year’s spending 
tussle, soda! security, employ- 
ment, health, education, housing 
and agriculture budgets were all 
increased. Only transport suffered 
an extra cutback. The cash came 
from the reserve, and from raising 
the target for asset sales. 

In the new debate over next 
year's budgets, the government 
again feces demands for extra, 
cash. Unemployment is still ris- 
ing, automatically boosting the

tion is felting fester than forecast,

bow much of this gain win be 
sustained through to 1987-88. And 
the plans are based on quite 
unrealistic figures for local author- 
ity spending, which was assumed 
to rise barmy at all between last 
year and next 

Many of these pressures are 
much less severe than they were in 
the government's early years. 
Some have almost disappeared. 
Defence, which ate up an increas- 
ing proportion of the budget until 
the mid-1980s, has now been 
ordered to halt 

But one problem looks perhaps 
even worse than ever. Pay in the 
public sector has lagged behind, 
private industry, and private sec- 
tor pay seems to be increasing its 
lead over prices. Even if the 
government pursues a less provoc- 
ative pay policy in the public 
sector, keeping down increases for 
its top employees, the wage bill as 
a whole is dearly going to outpace 

The Chancellor cannot count on 
the same privatization magic 10

* billion, the target for receipts next 
year is already pretty high and 
cannot be dramatically increased 
again. Nor can he reduce his 
reserve by more than about £2 
billion without alarming the City: 
tire main purpose of the reserve, 
after all, is to keep control once 
spending is under way, not to 
allow plans to be inflated In 

• advance. Less than £200 mil- 
Ikm — to finance new employ- 
ment programmes — has been 
formally drawn from the reserve 
fin- 1987-88 already. But a more 
realistic e&imate fat local author- 
ity spending would probably take 
care of another £2 billion: 

-It is. however, important to 
avoid gloomy doufateoounting at 
this point. Much of the extra 
spending by local authorities 
would, of course, go on education, 
their main responsibility. 

But the significant point ts that 
none of these cost increases shows 
up in an improvement in public 
services. And the change in politi- 
cal mood is certain to show up in 
two different ways. It wifl make 
ministers less ready to finance 
unavoidable cost bulges by cutting 
into services, while at tire same 
time increasing their appetites for 
improvements in existing plans. 

So the strategic question for the 
government is whether, by pump- 
ing in a bit more, it could make an 
impact on the quality , of sendees 
that would be perceived fay the 
voter or whether it would toss 
away its tax. cuts to no political 

The "balanced ticket” proposed 
by John Biffen rests on the idea 
that there is enough money to 
tickle the voter both ways. The 
Chancellor yesterday rejected tbis 
notion. Lawson’s latest Budget 
forecasts suggest that if the gov- 
ernment held to its spetratng 
targets, there would be only 
£2 billion to spare for tax cuts in 
1987-88. Rather more might be in 
hand for 1988-89, but the election 
dock nmsr out early in that 
financial year. 

That £2 billion is only enough 
to finance Lawson’s scheme for 
profit-linked pay and trim another 
lp off the basic rate of income tax. 
But perhaps the Chancellor is the 
victim of his own success in 
financial conjuring. In this year’s

Why Gandhi’s reforms could falter 

Suddenly R^jiv Gandhi is on trial 
The optimism and the euphoria 
which followed his sweeping elec- 
toral victory 18 months ago has 
dissipated, leaving a mood of 
scepticism and disillusion. 
Gandhi’s task now is not one of 
reforming India, but of simply 
governing the country. This stub- 
born, complex and ancient land 
with its population of 750 million 
appears to have resisted his de- 
signs for change. The enduring 
character of India — which his 
critics -say his mother understood 
so well — has re-emerged, and 
brought the prime minister’s plans 
to ruin. 

Gandhi's policies have been 
tested in many ways. In Punjab, 
where 300 have died , in recent 
terrorist attacks, it is dear that his 
attempt, to strengthen Sikh mod- 
erates and outflank the extremists 
has foiled. His attempt to bring 
about communal peace by appeas- 
ing orthodox Muslims has alien- 
ated the Hindu middle classes. 

Even abroad concessions are 
not reaping rewards. His Sri 
Lanka initiative was intended to 
settle tin island's ethnic conflict 
but seems onty to have provided 
cover for the Sri i-aniqm army in 
its recent attacks on Tamils. There 
has been increased dissent in tire 
Congress Party after these failures, 
despite Gandhi's attempts 10 stifle 

oppoatiou by means of expulsum 

tJjK^SisDension. . 

Serious as these failures are, an 
even greater test is 10 come. This is 
how he will face up to public 
protest against his policies, carfier 
this year, a general strife paralysed 
the country and tens of thousands 
courted arrest in demonstrations 
over higher prices. 

The trouble stems from 
Gandhi's pursuit of right-wing 
economic policies. He could seek 
to implement them in a Third 
Worm dictatorship or a western 
democracy; to make the attempt 
in a poor Third World democracy 
is to end up tom between the 
opposed logic of one's politics and 
one's economics. 

India's political parties have 
long offered populist policies and 
tymbatic gestures. Socialism, with 

so far ^proved irresistible!^ *its 
name taxation has been raised, 
government extended and . in- 
dividual initiative stifled in favour 
of a collective public sector. Yet, 
for from securing salvation, these 
policies have nurtured India’s

.1984 be inherited an economy 
c hoked by its own bottlenecks, 
overmanned and unproductive 
industries, a flourishing Mad: 
market and a tax structure so 
severe it crippled the honest. 

It was to lar-kfa all *hi« that 
Gandhi introduced his economic

fall benefit of his salary and 
savings, he reduced taxes' and 
abolished death duties. On the 
more important corporate level, 
he fought to encourage production 
by liberalizing import restrictions, 
lifting licence requirements in 
several key gro wt h sectors and 
committing his government to a 
five-year fiscal policy to help 
business devetopment. 

The aim was dean to secure 
economic growth, led by the 
private sector; which would per- 
colate downwards to alleviate the 
general wretchedness erf India’s 
population. Ail this could be 
achieved only by relying rdy on 
individual or corporate enterprise, 
encouraged by government policy. 

But white making economic 
sense and probably the only way 
to cure India's mala?***-, such 
policies conflict with political 
reality. The immediate -advan- 
tages accrue to a 5 per cent 
minority of the business and 
professional classes who benefit

term benefit, the poor now get 

In May last year, when Gandhi 
altered tire balance of taxation 
aw^y from direct to indirect 
payment, it was the urban woriring 
dmses th^ were hardest hit by die' 
rise in prices. This February, when 
prices rose again, to reduce tire 

the more relaxed import regula- 
tions, it was tire same people who 

Gandhi's opponents have al- 
ready been quick to seize upon 
such discontent The recent 
demonstrations and spikes were 
their work. But it is fire future 
political costs of his economic 
policies that should now concern 
Gandhi If be sticks to his policies, 
as be has so for, greater discontent 
could follow, perhaps encouraging 
disaffection within the Congress 
party. Many of hs members, now 
denied the opportunities for graft 
on which they previously grew fat, 
-could present formidable oppo- 
sition. If the bogey of "tax cuts for 
tire rich, inflation. for the poos” 
were to take firm-root, Gandhi's 
prospects at the next general 
election would be undermined. 

Gandhi's dilemma is that he 
cannot assuage public opinion 
without jettisoning tire most im- 
portant of bis reforms. His best 
option is to attempt to contain the 
damage .when it comes. 

Hat task is not helped by the 
feet that very few of his couutty- 
men are aware of the courage be 
has shown in sticking to his 
economic policies. As be could 
soon find out, bow do you get 
people to appreciate what they 
may really need but passionately 
do not want? 


Two. years ago, firs Thatcher 

returned from Fontainebleau with 
the package which at last reduced 
the running adverse gap between 
the UK’s contributions to said 
recei p ts from the EEC. Is return, 
Britain had agreed to^n increase 
in- VAT-related national contribu- 
tions to the Gnnmanity's “own 

resources” from a ceiling of 1 per 
dent to t'A per cent. But this year 
the. EEC w&be up against the 1-4 
per cent ceating, which position 
will just about be. sustained, in 
1 987. jsfegotiatkms wifi then have 
to .begin for a 1.6 per cenrcofing 
since by 1988: the 1.4 per cent Emit 
wiS have been broken* A year 

ahead of expectations. 

The feD in the yatoe.of the doHar 
is the most immediate cause, since 
it will make American- farm 

US is storing 80 mxflxon tons of 
grian,- which is expected to reach 
260 nuHion-totts by the end oftfcjs 
season — almost 50 per cent oflast 

EECsubsLdies- But the roots of the 
problem are tire anti-social 
anangmems tty which not only 
Europe but also the US pump 
money into producing unwanted 
produce with damaging effects 
outside their own borders. 

Europe’s common agricultural 
policy has tong fatten theoretically 
friendless. Bot too many vested 
interests profit fiom-it to euable it 
to be reformed easily, and they 
include Britain’s formers. 

The Commission’s general 
ideas fer reducing the level of form 
support are resisted here as loudly 
as anywhere; and the cuts in the 
milt quotas have teen a source of 
much dis c o ntent. j fgrain f ar mer s, 
the hugest beneficiaries of sup- 
port, felt tfareafoKd, their anger 
would be a real problem for tins 
government Besides, could any 
British government seeing the 
transformation of the-agncuttnmi 
countryside into a dormitory sub- 
urb, really ccmtempiate the demise 
of small formers, even though the 
main benefits of subsidy go to the 
form, comdomerates? 

Above all, Europe cannot tadkle 
its own Otf so tongas its forming, 
and tite te^timate wish of the 
Community not to become agri- 
culturally dependent on other 

of^suteidy in the United States. 
This is a worid problem which can 
be solved only by negotiated 
reduction of worid subsidies 
analagous with the negotiated 
reduction of nuclear weapons. 

In a recent spetxh to the Lord 
Mayor’s diplomatic banquet, the 
Foreign Secretary,. Sir Geoffrey 
Howe, spoke of the “pofititt <n 
food-” The political and economic 
paradoxes of food, be observed; 
derive from ?ton e ample bat 
misgnided idea. It is that sun, soil 
and rain are not suffidem; and 
that fin modem agnatiture to 
succeed some extra vital fertiliser 
is essential - taxpayers’ money,” 

In 1986, he. pointed out, tax- 
payers in Europe, the US and 
Japan will pay out no less than 
$40 bilfion dollars in direct sub- 
sidies — more than three times the 
gross national' products of Ethio- 
pia and Sudan. So we have huge 
surpluses, with Europe storing at 
public expense half a nriHion tons 
ofbeeC one million tons of butter; 
18 Txnflkmbectotitres of wmeand 
16 nnUfon tons of grain. But the

Mrs Tbaicher has listened to 
her party’s worries about 
education and appointed her 
most plausible “carer” Mr 
Kenneth Baker to answer 
them. She has shown just as 
gleariy; however, that she is 
hot to be bounced into a free- 
for-all of public spending to 
buy herself - out of electoral 
trouble.- Mr -Nicholas Ridley 
will be no soft touch for the big 
spending clients of the 
Environment Department.- He 
may not even say “ho” very 
nicely. At the Treasury Mr 
Norman Lamont has as robust 
an attitude to public spending 
and privatisation .as the man 
from whom he takes over, Mr 
John Moore, the new Trans- 
port Secretary who adds both 
to the Cabinet's good .sense 
^ind to its communicating 

-The- Prime Minister said at 
Perth that she was not chang- 
ing her basic course and this 
minor reshuffle (more limited 
.than many Of hpr more worr 
•xied supporters * would have 
4iked) reflects that pledge. She 
has continued to reward loy- 
alty even if she has shown her 
■usual reluctance to punish 

It used to be customary to 


analyse ministerial changes in 
terms of the balance between 
wets and dries. Judging this 
reshuffle by that standard, the 
conclusion must be one of “no 
change” Today, however, that 
standard is somewhat otiose. 
It is replaced by die distinction 
between those, who .want, to 
stand pat on the government's 
achievements and those who 
think (rightly) that, a govern- 
ment- which has finished is a 
government which is finished. 

.Mr Bater is seen asa wet but 
he is' no advocate of traditional 
demand management of the 
economy. He understands the 
need to target spending on 
issues of public concern and be 
is an exceptional politician 
when it comes to getting the 
maximum political bang for 
his departmental buck. That 
means spending on education 
without looking as though one 
is a pale imitation of the keen 
spender whom Laboiff or the 
Alliance would have in the job. 
’... Mr Ridley is a fiilly paid up 
member" of the dry brigade. 
That does not mean he loyes a 
good lecture, on the latest 
monetary aggregate. But he 
(and she) are well aware that 
for all that education is the 
flavour of this political month 

it cannot be guaranteed to 
remain so till the election. The 
government must do more 
than match its opponents in 
caring. It must continue to be 
an active administration too. 

In his new department he 
will need to pick up the 
campaign, left to him by Mr 
Baker, for controlling central 
funds for local government 
and making local electorates 
feel more closely the cost of 
their Labour votes. He will 
have to bring with him from 
Transport his committment to 
the development in the South 
East which the Channel Tun- 
nel brings in its wake. He will 
find opponents here within his 
own ministerial team as well as 
amomg the backbenchers of 
Surrey and Kent. He has the 
determination to fight them 

The departure of Sir Keith 
Joseph marks a milestone in 
the history of Mrs Thatcher’s 
administration. Her Cabinet 
has lost her intellectual mentor 
and in circumstances of gen- 
erally unfair criticism that she 
must surely regret. But his 
leaving has opened a small 
opportunity which she has 
taken in an assured, if hardly 
dramatic, way. 


Tit should have turned out 
differently. Demographic 
-change presented ihe : schools 
with a cmce-fbr-all opportu- 
nity. First in .the 'primaries, 
■then as the 1980s rolled on iii 
Hhe secondary schools and 
.colleges, it* could have been a 
.time to take stock, weed the 
.curriculum garden, inject new 
blood here, close a bad school 
there. The script did not have 
to be written centrally: educa- 
'tion officers were panting to 
get a grip. 

The end of falling roils is 
>now m sight. School-children 
of primary school ngohave, in 
some areas, ^already -begun to 
crowd available places. A wifr- 
dow of opportunity is dosing. 
This bprst of public attention 
io education comes - dapr 
gerpusly.Jate. .YeVt^jBiwe 
•titan a, politician's pjo^ There 
is too mach evidence of public 
unease for the education de- 
bate of 1986 to be dismissed as 

; It certainly figured in the 
local election results. It shows 
in the attractiveness of private 
schooling for those who can 
afford it (and some who, by 
M any sober reckoning, cannot.) 
"Britain's anxieties about pub- 
lic education are perhaps part 
of an international movement 
to revise the patterns of ednca-~ 
lion and scholastic practices 
built in during the era of 
demographic expansion 20 
years ago. 

The mood is certainly par- 
alleled in other countries, 
notably the United States of 
America where the Reagan 
administration has both in- 
stituted wide ranging inquiry 
into the state of the secondary 
schools and put federal money 
into, such fascinating experi- 
ments as “magnet” high 
^schools. There, as in Britain, 
'■5m5cb, energy is being ex- 
uded * . on the quality " of 
jtea^ing training. * 

-■“Some kind of education 
Rebate would have taken place 
anyway. The centra! theme of 
'■Mr Callaghan’s truncated ef- 
'Tort : is even more pressing in 
jhe middle of this decade than 
it Was in the last It is, simply 
’piit, that education and econ- 
omy have been too mis- 
aligned, that fitness for work 
has had a neglected place 
Imong the purposes of the 
"Schools. Eventually the 
'Compensatory programme of~

a far-seeing minister and dan- 

... It is unfair because iv ne- 
glects the work done by Sir 
Keith on two fronts, beginning 
to institute a core curriculum, 
and establishing clearly that 
there must be some observable 
link between the expenditure 
of public money on schools 
and teachers and the quality of 
education. It is dangerous if 
the public has been led to 
expect much more . than can

perhaps 'as important a great 
deal to say. He is and will 
remain an instigator rather 
than a doer. Some people, 
otherwise distrustful of Gallic 
habits, have come to find 
attractive the Napoleonic 
model of education in which a 
minister ordains the detail of 
classroom practice- Such 
centralization is .profoundly 
unEnglish; impractical too- 

The rask in hand is to still 
public anxiety, and Mr Baker’s 
noted skills in communication 
.recommend him. A package of 
temporary measures is re- 
quired. He has also to begin — 
educational change is nec- 
essarily long term — to address 
the public’s worry about the 
state of schools, not by solemn 
incantations about standards 
but by the careful unfolding of 
i map on which a single broad 
line is traced: the ‘Teskilling” 
rf the nation's manpower, the 
setter fitting of school-leavers 
'or a world in which there is no 
;ut-off between work and 
raiping, the gearing of-second- 
iry schools to an unknown and 
hanging pattern of economic 
opportunity. - • 

•- Under that banner, it is no 
ixaggeration to call the present 
ind ftiture shortfall of quali- 
led teachers in certain vital 
;ubjects a national emergency. 
The former minister for 
nformation technology 
jiould know that Crisis mea- 
,ures are justified. Schools that

Yesterday’s report by Her 

Majesty’s Inspectors of 
Schools illustrated, not for the 
first lime, the physical 
deterioration of schools. Here 
is a suitable case for immedi- 
ate action by the Department 

of Education. It would take no 
very large -input of central 
monev to stimulate a host of 
local repair and maintenance 
schemes. Some might be or- 
ganized through the Man- 
power Services Commission; 
others might pay for paint and 
brushes for parents. Again the 
government must be prepared 
to mobilize the opinion of 
parents (and children and 
teachers) to head off any 
antagonism by municipal 

These are actions for Mr 
Baker’s first day in office. Over 
the weeks to come the Govern- 
ment must take action on 
teachers' salaries for there can 
be no doubt now that the 
“remoralization” of the teach- 
. ing profession in England and 
■Wales requires a salary settle- 
ment to elevate teachers' earn- 
ings both absolutely and 

There is a vexed issue here. 
How much detail should a 
teachers’ contract specify. No 
Secretary of State for Educa- 
tion (of either party) is going to 
be able to convince his Cabinet 
colleagues . that a 
“professionaTpay rise is jus- 
tified without some written 
-symbol of teachers’ attach- 
ment to minimum hours and 
service. But there is ground 
for hope on this front. The 
talks now taking place under 
between teacher unions and 
local authorities under Acas 
could well lead to agreement 
on a formula that specified not 
detailed hours of work bui 
qualitative objectives. 

To enforce such a contract, a 
minister with imagination 
might resurrect the idea of a 
professional council for the 
leaching profession. It works 
in Scotland. Here, too. might 
be a mechanism (relatively 
cheap) to which teachers might 
appeal when oppressed by 
councillors who would sooner 
see inner city children indoc- 
trinated by fashionable dogma 
than given an education of 
some usefulness for their lives. 
And here, - surely. Govern- 
ment. teachers and parents are 
at one. 

Mr Baker has a full, practical 
agenda. Paying teachers will 
inevitably require a consid- 
erable adjustment to public 
spending aggregates. He might 
want to. put his hard-won 
knowledge of local authority 
finance to work and devise 
some better means of 
delivering education spending 
locally. But the big philosophi- 
cal questions, parental choice 
vs collective provision, educa- 
tion vs training, the liberal 
curriculum vs a curriculum of 
skills: the time has come for a 

Somewhere down the road 
lies the necessity of reworking 
the 1944 Education Act with 
its insistence that local 
authorities provide and its 
implicit ban -on variegated 
schooling (for example with 
local education trusts running 
schools in the same way as the 
religious authorities). But Mr 
Baker has a clear short-run 
task. Too many English 
schools, too many of their 
pupils are under-achieving. 
Central government initiative 
can help parents and teachers 
stop the rot The nation’s 
posterity depends on his judge- 
ment flair and energy. 


A new approach to unemployment 

From Professor Emeritus H. F. 

Sir, It is good news that the Prime 
Minister has com mined the Gov- 
ernment io a full-scale attack on 
ihe problem of unemployment. 
The conventional remedy, as 
taught for 50 years in our univer- 
sities. has been deficit spending. 
But experience has shown that 
that policy soon produces infla- 
tion and a deteriorating balance of 

in principle., the inflationary 
side-efTects could be moderated by 
a really tough incomes policy. Bui 
no such policy has ever been 
applied for a sufficient length of 
lime and. in any case, the present 
Government is resolutely opposed 
to it. 

The heart of the employment 
problem in this country is that too 
many of our cnierprises are in- 
efficient or unsuitable for the 
present structure of demand. Ev- 
ery change in world conditions 
reveals a new sector of British 
industry which is overmanned, 
technically obsolescent, or un- 
competitive. We have seen this in 
coal, cotton, steel, shipbuilding, 
motor vehicles, and electronic 
equipment, among others. 

The usual response to un- 
employment on the workers' side 
is io demand that the same jobs 
should be preserved at all costs by 
subsidies or protection. But this 
usually does no more than post- 
pone the problem, meanwhile 
making things worse for everyone 
else. What is the response on the 
other side, by the company or the 
nationalized industry? Typically, 
no more than an expression of 
regret, and a shrug of disengage- 

But when Japanese shipyards 
were closing in the 1970s. the 

firms diversified inio new prod- 
ucts. They were determined to 
stay in business, and both the 
managers and the workers were 
able and willing to change over to 
new products, new processes, and 
new working conditions. They had 
teamwork and dedication. Why 
do our firms, especially our 
nationalized industries, show no 
such elasticity and initiative? 

If we want to solve the un- 
employment problem we must 
create a new attitude to productive 
work, at all levels, not least in 
education. We need to encourage 
enterprise, technical competence, 
determination, teamwork, and the 
unrelenting search for quality. 
That is the only long-term solu- 
tion. It will take lime, even if we 
stan now. 

In the meantime. Government 
could help b> establishing

of the country, giving them the

and to provide retraining facilities

The media, especially tele- 
vision. could also help if they 
would give publicity to our indus- 
trial achievements, instead of 
focussing always on faults and 
criticisms. And teachers could

Hospital cuts 

From ihe District General Man- 
ager of the Chester Health 

Sir, Many health authority man- 
agers like myself are seriously 
concerned over our ability to 
maintain both emergency and 
non-emergency services in the 
immediate future. The spectre of 
hospitals being closed for emer- 
gency admissions due to a lack of 
junior medical cover and of 
increases in wailing lists is begin- 
ning to loom large. 

.As an example, last weekend the 
general manager for the acute 
hospitals in Chester had to take a 
decision as to whether to employ a 
locum junior ophthalmologist 
through an agency at a cost off.400 
purely to maintain an emergency 
service over the weekend, or at a 
cost of £1 ,000 for the remainder of 
the week to avoid, amongst other 
things, deferring approximately 40 
out-pa iiem attendances for several 

Yesterday he informed me that 
a similar crisis had arisen in 
general surgery which would have 
to be resolved within the next few 
days. 1 fear that these crises will 
now come thick and fast 
Locum agencies for junior doc- 
tors currently charge at a rate

Cornish heritage 

From Mr Nicholas Serpell 
Sir. In answer to your correspon- 
dent, Mr Weaver (May 13). em- 
blems of tourism on the font at 
Pendeen. or indeed, any other 
Cornish church, are indeed a poor 
substitute for emblems of real 
industry which creates real jobs. 
Tourism certainly has not brought 
as much benefit to the duchy as 
fishing, farming or mining be- 
cause. based as it is on a season 
lasting no more than three 
months, it cannot and does not 
offer secure employment to the 
local population. In fact, tourism 
swells the unemployment figures 

by importing part-time workers 
from other parts of the country 
who then stay on in the winter, 
living off the state. 

To see Cornwall merely as a 
summer playground for the rest of 
Britain is to deny the inhabitants 
the prospect of long-term jobs. Let 
us squash once and for all the idea 
that investment in tourism is an 
adequate substitute for the loss of 
the tin mines of west Cornwall and 
an answer to the problems of a 
depressed Cornish economy. 
Yours faithfully,

On the contrary 

From Dr S. B. Field 
Sir, Some people from rural areas

that high fat intake is detrimental 
to healLh.

igh intake of saturated fat is good

Dr Griffiths is expressing a

Dons’ response 
to salary lure 

£50.000 per annum for a junior 
doctor (approximately double the 
rate for a hospital consultant). 
This has now become a seller's 
markeL The financial effects on 
health authorities operating 
within cash limits and. in many 
pans of the country, experiencing 
reductions in their revenue budget 
due to the RAWP (resource 
allocation working party) formula, 
could well result in restrictions in 
services, not only in secondary but 
in primary care. 

This is a sorry commentary on 
the inability or the NHS. and 
indeed of the medical profession, 
to foresee the consequences of 
major policy decisions taken with- 
out meaningful consultation with 
those who have to proride these 
vital services at an operational 
level — i.e.. managers in health 
districts and units and hospital 
consultants at grassroots level. 

It also suggests that, despite 
much talk in recent years over the 
need for the NHS to improve its 
manpower planning, we are still 
gening it wrong — and in one of 
the most vital areas of all.

May 14. 

From Dr David Sewbery 
Sir, Some academics may be 
tempted by the prospect of dou- 
bling their salaries by moving to 
ibe private sector, but for those 
who are attracted by the pursuit of 
knowledge, there is a more ob- 
vious temptation, and that is to 
take an academic post in the 
United States. 

In my own subject, economics, 
we have lost too many of the 
brightest and best young theorists 
over the past decade. In the past 
year I have noticed two new 
and worrying trends. 

I was recently approached by 
the dean of an American univer- 
sity. anxious to recruit new staff, 
who was trying to compile a list of 
good, potentially mobile academ- 
ics whom he could approach, for, 
as he put it. Britain now had the 
cheapest talent available. 

I am similarly sent personal 
letters urging me to send my best 
graduates for doctoral training at 
the leading American graduate 
schools, usually as a result of 
recommending former students 
who have clearly distinguished 

Since the quality of graduate 
training is so good, and since these 
students then have ready access to 
good American economics depart- 
ments, 1 continue to advise them 
to go. 

In the past, many such students 
would return to the UK. after 
obtaining their doctorate, but now 
very few do — the prospects here 
look so unattractive by compari- 
son. If these trends continue, then 
I fear that we shall continue to lose 
our best academics, whilst failing 
to replace them by the best 

But what is to be done, for the 
cost of raising all academic sal- 
aries to the point where they are 
attractive enough to keep the best 
would be prohibitive? 

My suggestion (and there maybe 
other solutions) is to give the 
research councils additional fends 
to finance research posts for key 
academics. These could be de- 
signed to sound prestigious (rather 
like named chairs at US univer- 
sities). to pay well, and to buy off 
some fraction of teaching time. 

They would logically be of 
limited tenure (perhaps five 
years), the agreement being that 
the university to which the aca- 
demic belongs would then resume 
employment at the original leveL 
The posts could be renewable if 
the bolder continues to dem- 
onstrate excellence. 

Who knows, h might even be 
possible to tempt back some 
former emigrants if they were 
made attractive enough.

Library’s future 

From the Secretary-General of the 
Arts Council 

Sir. Your feature, “Poetry' Today” 
/May 6). expressed anxiety over 
the destiny of the Arts Council’s 
poetry library, at present at 105 
Piccadilly. The council has taken a 
decision in principle to disengage 
from direct management of art 
activities where this can be done 
without damage to the activities 

I can assure you that it is not 
contemplating any reduction in 
the activities of the library or the 
service it provides. The council is 
in fact taking this opportunity to 
explore possibilities which, we 
hope, will lead to the library 
becoming more accessible to the 
public than is possible in 105 
Piccadilly, impeded as it is by lack 
of space and restrictions in its 
opening hours. 

If the council decides to dis- 
engage from direct management of 
the library, it will nevertheless 
continue to make adequate annual 
funds available to cover the cost of 
its present staff, book fend and 
other activities. 

.Yours faithfully.

Single European Act 

From Sir Anthony Meyer. MP for 
Chyd North H 'est (Conservative) 
Sir. Sir Edward du Cano, whose 
letter you published on May 6, is a 
leading member of the European 
Reform Group. This consists of a 
small number of Conservative 
MPs whose aim. despite the name 
of their group. is not to reform the 
European Community, but to 
destroy it Their hostility to 
British membership of the 
Community is. ofcourse. perfectly 
legitimate; but they would com- 
mand more respect if they did not 
masquerade as reformers. 

The European Communities 
Bill now before Parliament is 
designed to give effect to the 
curiously named “Single Euro- 
pean Act” recently approved by all 

the member states of the European 
Community. This i$ a very modest 
set of proposals to improve the 
procedures for reaching decisions 
within the Community. Thev do 
not abolish the right of national 
veto; wh?t they do is to exert some 
pressure on member states not to 
resort to the veto except where 
genuine national interests are at 

It has been dear for a long time 
that if member states regularly use 
their veto io block decisions which 
arc inconvenient or embarrassing 
to them. then, in a Community of 
12, there can be no progress on 
such vital matters as reform of the 
common agricultural policy, 
completion of the internal market, 
or effective action against terror- 
ism — ail of them key British 

With our unwritten Constitu- 
tion and with our traditions of 
parliamentary supremacy there is 
no way in which our ultimate right 
of veto could be abolished by any 
written texts. The European Re- 
form Group are purposely and 
needlessly spreading alarm. 

But can even they deny that 
Europe needs, more than ever, to 
be able to exert its influence as an 
equal partner with the United 
States in matters of trade, rela- 
tions with ihe Arab world and in 
East-West relations? And if Eu-

(From Our Own Correspondent-.! 

Madrid, may 21. 

The King, with the Queen- 
Mother. the whole Court, and all 
the foreign Princes, was present 
this afternoon at a State bullfight. 
The rumour published in some 
English newspapers that the Duke 
of Connaught attended a bullfight 
last Friday is quite unfounded. The 
Duke has been to no bullfight until 
he attended the State function of 
this afternoon, which is a very 
different matter. The great func- 
tion of to-day. la Corrida Real con 
Cabellerox en plaza -" the Royal 
Bullfight with gentlemen in the 
arena” - was Lhe most typically 
Spanish of all the festivities of the 
past week, and deserves for that 
reason to be described a little more 

State bullfights have been of rare 
occurrence during recent years in 
Spain, the last having taken place 
more than 20 years ago. after the 
marriage of Alfonso XII. with the 
Queen Maria Cristina. In former 
days they were a good deal more 
frequenu and the fame of one 
which was given on the Plaza 
Mayor of honour of the 
English Charles 1. during his visit 
to Spain, is suli remembered. 
Bullfighting of the ordinary kind 
has sadly degenerated during the 
last 100 years and has developed 
one feature - the senseless and 
wanton slaughter of broken-down 
horses in the first suerte - the act of 
the picadores - which fully merits 
the censures passed upon the sport 
by other European nations. In the 
old days the picadores were mount- 
ed on good horses, and their 
business was to save them and turn 
the bull. That, too. ts the business 
of the caballeros. who take the 
place of the picadores in a State 
bullfight, which, besides adhering 
to the old form of the lidia, has 
retained all the ancient pomp and 
ceremony of a Royal spectacle. 

The interior uf the vast arena of 
the Plaza de Toros does not in 
these days present, as a rule, a very 
exhilarating scene. There is the 
same animation as of old. but the 
colour and brightness of former 
times are sadly lacking. But few 
men wear the white sombrero now, 
and the white mantillas and red 
flowers with which all the women 
used to deck their heads are but 
rarely seen. There is no compensat- 
ing gaiety of hue to relieve the dull 
ranks of the expectant crowd or the 
dark shadow of cruelty which to an 
impressionable mind seems always 
to hang over the pUce of impend- 
ing slaughter. But on the occasion 
of a Royal bullfight, like to-days, 
the Plaza wears a very different 
aspect. The huge outer circle of its 
walls, which usually stand so 
grimly against the sky. is sur- 
mounted with innumerable flags; 
the boxes in the upper tiers, the 
balconies above the tendidos, all 
the vacant spaces are draped with 
costly tapestries. To-day the an- 
cient houses of the Sotomayois, 
the de la Conquistas. the Abrantes. 
the Sanfelices de Aragon, the 
Valencias de Don Juan, and a score 
of other nobles have despoiled 
themselves of their priceless woven 
treasures to enhance the splendour 
of the King’s bullfight. The serried 
ranks of the spectators, the men in 
their gala uniforms, the women all 
in white mantillas with the tradi- 
tional flowers poised conquettishly 
on une side of the head, are 
brilliant in colour. . . 

The cuadrilla is not the usual 
one. There are two Alguaciles 
wearing the old Spanish dress 
instead of one. and their duty, by 
the way. is to remain in the arena 
the whole time of the fight. 2 duty 
which involves considerable risk to 
themselves and their horses. Be- 
hind them follow, not the usual 
picadores in their yellow leather 
dress riding miserable scarecrows 
of horses, but the splendid State 
coaches of three grandees of Spain, 
the Duke of Medmaceii. the Mar- 
quis of Tovar, and the Duke of| 
Montellano. Sitting beside each 
grandee respectively are Don Anto- 
nio Luzunariz. lieutenant of the 
Royal escort. Don Gabriel de 
Benito e Ibafiez de Aldecoa. lieu- 
tenant of the Queen's Lancers, and 
Don Manuel Romero de Tejada, 
also lieutenant of cavalry. Each 
roach is an ended with the usual 
number of running footmen in the 
liveries uf their houses, and behind 
each is led as good a horse as man 
could desire. The caballero* are 
dressed in an old Spanish dress of 
the 16th century, not in uniform. 
Each is attended by several foot- 
men in a dres? of the same period 
whose duty it was to bring them 
fresh lances when they were bro- 
ken. After these come the usual 
espadas. banderiUera and chutes 
in their accustomed finery, fur ir is 
only the firs: three bulls which are 
killed in the old fashion. The 
caballero* take leave of their noble 
padrinos, the latter drive off in 
their coaches, and the fight begins. 

The bulls were of the famous 
breed of the Duke of Veragua- The 
caballcros showed more good will 
chan actual skill, though each 
succeeded in breaking several 
lances before the day was over. . .

Confrontation as a 
sort of freedom 



Something about the modem 
rwerehy campus seems to 
of/w out the bitch In manv 
storytellers A Very Peculiar 
Practice (SBC2J unfolded the 
misadventures of a new doctor 
at a redbrick university with 
the same gleeful cynicism that 
characterized The History 
Man a few years ago. There 
was even a glancing witticism 
about Malcolm Bradbury to 
nuke the cognoscenti feel 

The screenplay, by Andrew 
Davies, was scattered with 
other allusions — the vice- 
chancellor was named Ernest 
Hemmingway. the senior doc- 
tor in the practice was a 
caricature of the crusty Dr 
I'jAneron. and the requisite 
nubile dream-girl in the story 
literally saved our hero's life 
when he foolishly tried to keep 
abreast of the campus over- 
achiever in the swimming pooh 
This test character also had 
the predatory name of Buz- 
zard, and the campus medical 
centre proved to be a hotbed of 
thwarted ambition in which 
this monster grappled with his 
loony feminist colleague for 
the chair from which their 
alcoholic boss will shortly fail. 

Peter Davison, already fa- 
miliar as both Dr Who and the 
Flying Vet. took the role of the 
yKdicai Caadide who blun- 
dered through this crowd of 
gargoyles crying to do good. 
Last night's episode had tc 
establish the scenario for the 
fort booming six weeks of the 
series, and its wit consequently 
seemed blunted by technical 
requirements. In time, A Very 
Peculiar Practice may develop 
a memorable wit from what at 
present seems tike an exuber- 
ant morass of cynicism. 

Earlier in the evening, the 
novelist Beryl Bainbridge

il is not immediately clear 
what Larry Kramer's rightly- 
praised play is about. Trans- 
ferred from the Royal Court, 
where ii was reviewed on this 
page by Irving Wardle, for a 
three-month season in the 
West End, the play has to do 
with Aids, certainly, and dying 
of Aids. The opening scene is 
set in a consulting room and 
the play ends at a deathbed, 
although the only other medi- 
cal scene is one in which the 
wheel-chaired doctor (Jenny 
Lee), herself struck down with 
polio a few weeks before the 
Salk vaccine became avail- 
able. pleads for research fund- 
ing eloquently but in vain. 

The other scenes include 
apartments, offices of a gay 
information serv ice and some 
basement room in City Hall 
where the apprehensive may- 
or of New York meets with a 
gay delegation at one remove. 
Throughout these dozen 
scenes the black and white set 
remains the same, chiefly 
made up of fright news head- 
ings in giant letters but topped 
by something that suggests a 
symbolic attic — itself, of 
course, a metaphor — where 
the bundles of everyday items 
wrapped away under sheets 
include a sarcophagu s. 


Hard Knocks 


Yoshiko Chum a, who hails 
from Osaka via New York, is a 
skilled practitioner at organiz- 
ing chaos. This week at the 
ICA Theatre her company of 
six widely assorted dancers, 
the School of Hard Knocks, is 
joined by five local performers 
from various disciplines to 
present an idiosyncratic stage . 
reinterpretation of a 1941 
Hollywood film script 

Under the presumably de- 
liberately irrelevant title. Why 
Disney Painted London, tbey- 
discuss. analyze, enact ana 
.parody a film about a girl who. 
courted by. Tom, Dick and 
Harry, may have married ail 
of them. As conversation it is 
often witty, as an exposition of 
theatrical craft it is usually 
quiie impressive, as entertain- 
ment it is funny and striking. 

But it appears that Chuma 
is moving away from her 
dance roots. The bits of danc- 
ing look like pure decoration, 
as we are told used long ago to 
be the case in musicals. One 
exception: a young woman 
revolves once on her pedestal 

The play's central character 
is Ned, played at the Court by 
Martin Sheen and now given a 
coiled-spring performance by 
Tom Huice, an actor best 
known over here for his 
Mozart in the film of 
Amadeus. Playing a writer 
with a string of shrinks behind 
him, be is aptly described by 
one of the other characters as 
“confromauve”. For him the 
way to prevent Aids spreading 
is to stop having sex, but this 
campaign note finds little 
support among colleagues still 
fighting for the freedom to 
make love whenever, wherev- 
er and with whomsoever. 

So a play that is at first 
about the struggle to bring the 
mere feel of the “gay 
epidemic" to the attention of 
New York's Establishment 
then becomes a conflict be- 
tween one man's attitude and 
everyone rise’s. While this 
counterpoint thickens the 
structure it weakens the - 
thrust. For Kramer gives us 
only meagre information 
about Ned, andHulce’s attrac- 
tive and interesting perfor- 
mance has not by the end 
taken us much further into the 
character than the position be 
establishes at the start. 

Outside this structural un- 
certainty Kramer writes with 
wit, where the story can take 
it, a neat sense for timing 
shocks, and a rather old- 
feshioned fondness for set 
speeches. These are “declara- 

before asking why the heroine 
moves in the wrong circles. 
That brief moment of relevant 
movement shows up the rest 

By contrast a group of 
retrospective concerts by the 
English choreographer Rose- 
mary Butcher at Riverside last 
weekend showed her progress- 
ing to more lively use of 
movemenL During 1982-83, 
trying to make the dancers 
relate to structures by Dieter 
Pietsch, she sometimes lets 
them slow almost to immobil- 
ity: living sculptures. But a 
possibility of greater pace and 
intricacy, first indicated in a 
fast,, agile and amazingly sus- . 
tained solo for SueMacLen- 
nan (also in 1982) combines 
with qualities from all the 
other works to make her latest 
presentation, last year’s Flying 
Lines, tremendously exciting. 

A cast of nine is kept 
moving in varied patterns for 
40 minutes, with no steps 
other than walking and run- J 
ning, but with the floor pat- , 
terns, changes of pace and 
direction, use of arms and 
shoulders building a true cho- . 
reographic pattern. I had al- ! 
most written off Butcher in j 
her middle period as a spent , 
force. I am glad I was wrong (

emerges naturally from the

Double Double 

Palace, Watford 

By winding up his adventur- 
ous regime with a new play 
starring Jane Lapotaire and 
Roger Rees. Leon Rubin has 
secured a spectacular farewell 
to Watford before his depar- 
ture to the Bristol Theatre 
Royal. (His Watford succes- 
sor, Lou Stein, lakes over next 
month.) The price to be paid 
for this striking exit gesture is 
that it involves the perfor- 
mance of a play by Mr Rees 
and Eric Elice which does 

nothing to boost the idea that 
acting is the best preparation 
for dramatic authorship. Dou- 
ble Double is a two-charactcr 
thriller that inhabits a world 
bounded by French's acting 
editions, beyond which any 
links with the outside world 
are entirely coincidental.

Who Killed Hilda 


“Highly intelligent, charming 
and eccentric" was the Times 
comment on Hilda Murrell, 
the 78-year-old anti-nuclear 
campaigner who was stabbed 
in 1984 and whose murder 
remains a homeis'-nest of 
imponderables. The discon- 
nected telephone, the pin- 
stripe jogger, the crazy car-ride 
through daylight Shrewsbury, 
the unidentified police inspec- 
tor from London, not to 
mention the spectre of alleged 
Intelligence involvement: for- . 
ests have been sacrificed to 
speculative publication. 

Chris Martin does well to 
call his piece, first given at the 
Crucible, Sheffield, “an in- 
vestigation". A play it is not. 
In front of a wall of wood 
panelling which brings to 
mind the equivocal cosiness of 
the classic country-house 
whodunnit, a four-strong 
company recites a selection of 
the available evidence culled 
from police reports, newspa- 

per articles, Hansard and Miss 
Murrell's own writings. 

The feet that the victim 
(played with calm authority by 
Annie Raitt) participates in 
the proceedings is rather ma- 
cabre. but frequently effective | 
in bringing her own trenchant ; 
logic to bear on the mystery. 
The tone is one of outrage in 
the face of the authorities' 
failure to lay the ghost of the 
theories that would have Miss 
Murrell the victim of over- 
- zealous Intelligence agents in- 
vestigating her anti-nedear 
activities or the rather more 
tenuous Belgrano connection 
of her nephew Robert Green, 
(played by Ian Redford). 

The fact is, of course, that 
the author of this unashamed 
polemic does not want the 
ghost to be laid: it would be a 
disappointment to conspiracy 
buffs everywhere if the mur- 
derer could be proved to be a 
random psychopath — an 
event which, admittedly, 
seems increasingly unlikely. If 
Jane Collins's well-tuned pro- 
duction succeeds in reopening 
the case, the effort will pre- 
sumably have been justified.

interview by Nicholas 

When Sir Godfrey Taylor accepted 
the- chair of the London Residuary 
Body, inheritors of the Greater 
London Council's otherwise un- 
claimed liabilities and assets, he can 
hardly have expected to find himself 
in ihe position to help solve a 
problem that has perple^ the Arts 
Council. Covent Garden. London 
Festival Ballet and quite a few other 
organizations for years. That is the 
proposition that will be put to him at 
10 o’clock this morning. 

At that time Stephen Hetherington 
of Hetherington Seelig. an interna- 
tional arts administration and man- 
agement business, will put to him a 
scheme, backed by a group of rich 
‘Matrons who prefer at present to 
remain anonymous, for buying the 
Lyceum Theatre, restoring inc audi- 
torium to iis former flamboyant 
glory, „ providing vastly improved 
facilities and opening it as a theatre 
chiefly to house dance. About the 
need for such a house there can no 
longer beany doubt. More than three 
years ago an Arts Council study- 
group on opera and dance pointed out 
the desirability of a separate large 
theatre in London to meet the “very 1 
particular theatrical needs of dance”: 
an adequate sprung stage, perfect 
sight-lines, rehearsal studios and an 
orchestra pit capable also of electro* 

acousucal reproduction. 

The astonishing tiring is that 
British ballet has reached iu present 
Vpiinence. artistic and commercial, 
Staking do with shared and inade- 
quate theatres. But the lack of a good 
large theatre certain!) keeps many 
desirable visiting companies from 
our shores. 

The Arts Council accepted the 
argument, and Sir William Rees- 
Mogg spoke of the need for dance to 
have “its own London base, on a par 
tt 'ith the Royal Opera House and 
National Theatre”. But nobody could 
say there has been unseemly; haste in 
implementing it. A feasibility study

A meeting of immense 
importance to the 
whole future of ballet 
in Britain takes place 
this morning, with Sir 
Godfrey Taylor (right), 
chairman of the new 
London Residuary 
Body, very much the 
man in the hot seat; 
John Perdval reports 
on the continuing 
quest, supported by 
anonymous rich 
patrons, to acquire the 
Lyceum Theatre for 
the purpose to which it 
is best suited 


Time for dance to 
come into its own 

Beaumont recorded that the move 
“found great favour with the majority 
of the ballet-going public, because of 
ihe popular prices and the excellent 
view of the stage from ail parts of the 
house". After decades of use as a 
ballroom and. apparently, some ne- 
glect. it needs much wort but could 
provide excellent seating for about 
1200 spectators and a stage able to 
lake everv production of the Royal 
Ballet and London Festival Ballet 

Both those companies are whole- 
heartedly behind the scheme. The 
Royal Ballet's new artistic director, 
Anthony Dowell (like bis predecessor 
Norman Morricei, is convinced of the 
* alue for the artistic development of 
the dancers of occasional seasons 
performing every night instead of 
sharing the week as happens at 
Covent Garden. Dowell thinks it 
would be “marvellous for the dancers 
to >zeL a chance to perform to different 
audiences, perhaps draw in people 
frightened of the Opera House or put 
off bv the prices there”. 

His administrative director, An- 
ihonv Russell-Roberts, envisages that 
ihe ballet company from Covent 
Garden would perform for four or 
five weeks a year at the Lyceum. With 
other British and overseas companies 
appearing there, and perhaps short 

seasons of musicals that do not want 
or need a long run. which London 
otherwise might not see, he hopes the 
Lyceum would soon become recog- 
nized as a theatre “where a lot of 
exciting dance is shown". 

For London Festival Ballet, the 
need of a proper home is even more 
urgent At present the company 
depends for London seasons on a 
makeshift stage at the Festival Hall 
and the leftovers from English Na- 
tional Opera's year at the Coliseum: 
more restricted lately, more expen- 
sive too and not at the most 
advantageous times. Richard Jar- 
man, Festival general administra- 
tor, says “it would obviously be a 
tremendous. advantage for us to be 
a We to plan our seasons more 
rationally through the year” 

He sees this not only as making for 
better attendances and lower costs in 
the capital but, by bringing more 
regular attention in the national 
Press, helping their tours too. which 
would continue undiminished. Better 
forward planning of repertory and 
more predictability when negotiating 
with choreographers or designers 
would bring artistic benefits also. 

Where does this leave Sadler’s 
Wells, which al present is London’s 
only theatre regularly available for 

dance companies? Its director, Ste- 
phen Remington, takes the brave 
view that the Lyceum proposal “must 
be regarded as very exciting for dance 
and for everyone. Some of our 
companies would go there for some of 
their seasons, bul Sadler's Wells will 
still have an important role in 
bringing in tniddle-scalecompanies 
and being a home for Sadler's Wells 
Royal BalleL" 

Arts Council thinking is behind 
him in this. Just as the National 
Theatre has three auditoriums and 
the South Bank Arts Centre three 
concert halls, dance needs at least 
three London homes: large, medium 
and small. Sadler's Wells could 
continue to fill the middle s!ol 
especially if its stage is improved 
(paradoxically even small dance com- 
panies often need a large performing 

Sadler's Wells Royal Ballet's direc- 
tor, Peter Wright, confirms emphati- 
cally that his loyalties lie strongly 
with the Wells, and London Festival 
Ballet «ill continue to use the theatre 
for its smaller LFB2 programmes. In 
feci Sadler's Wells might even gain 
from the Lyceum's availability: expe- 
rience in New York and Paris is that 
making more dance seasons avail- 
able, more regularly, builds new 
audiences, especially among young 
people, and breaks down the miscon- 
ception of dance as an elitist 

The snag is that the Lyceum's 
sitting teneni. Mecca Leisure, hasalso 
- put in a bid to buy the theatre for con- 
tinued use as a ballroom and for 
functions, rock concerts, broadcasts 
and other activities. However, their 
use of the hall wastes its chief asset. 
the perfect sight-lines. Malting the 
Lyceum a theatre for dance gets belter 
value from the building, offers far 
more benefit to the hard-pressed 
construction industry in extensive 
adaptations (a factor that must weigh 
with government ministers) and 
brings long-term benefit to an art 
form that has done immense good to 
Britain's international standing and 
its tourist trade. 

Sir Godfrey Taylor may argue 
today that those factors do not 
concern the London Residuary Body. 
However, the Local Government Act 
empowers the Secretary of State to 
issue directions as to how it shall 
exercise its functions. There will 
doubtless be strong pressure to gain 
his support. 

Anthony Russell-Roberts sums up 
the argument: “This is an absolutely 
unique opportunity to gel an almost 
purpose-built dance house at no cost 
to the public purse. The need for one 
is a problem that will have to be faced 
sooner or later and it would be 
unforgivable to let this opportunity 

Obscene, said the first two- 
literary agents who read it. 
And lacking in moral purpose. 
Four years after its completion 
- when the author was still at 
Cambridge - Lost Time has 
found a publisher. .Already 
tipped in some quarters as a 
potential prize-winner. Catha- 
rine Arnold's first novel tells 
how a belatedly adolescent 
don is seduced first by one of 
his students, a boy with a 
fuchsia scarf, and then by the 
boy's sister. The result is not 
so much obscene 3S firmly 
rooted in a tradition which 
reaches back to Forster and 
Benson, nods to David 
Wurtzel's recent - Cambridge 
novel. Thomas Lysier. and 
continues today — no doubt as 
never before — behind the 
sported oaks and tight cravats. 

With a second novel accept- 
ed. the 27-year-old Catharine 
Arnold is “quite sure of where 
I'm heading"; also she is quite 
sure how to present herself on 
the way. A small girl with a 
pale oval face, she sits in black 
designer clothes in the comer 
of a wine bar called Methuse- 
lah. The hair is short-cropped 
white, her eyebrows dark as 
her sun-giasses. She wears 
them because her eyes are 
sensitive, she says. “One is 
short-sighted. one long. It 
means I can see well close to, 
but from a distance everything 
fades and merges." 

Wary of a job that would 
use her undoubted writing 
talent, Catharine Arnold 
works by day in the nearby 
copywriting firm of Freeman - 
Foxl She is used to interviews 
because she once worked for a 
recruitment agency and vetted 
undergraduates who wished to 
get into PR. Bui that was in a 
period she does not want to 
talk about She will plumb it 
for her fiction, she sa\s. 

Her mother, a miner's 
daughter of gipsy blood, came 
from the Rhondda Valley’ 
where, true to tradition, they 
had an outside loo and where 
her grandfather died of silico- 
sis. His coal-dust lies heavy on 
her designer jacket Her father, 
“an upper-class drop-out”, 
came from Warwickshire and 
a family of landowners called 
Gladwyn-Amold, descended 
from Matthew's brother 
Thomas. The double barrel 
does not fit snugly with the 
miner’s blood, so she dropped 
it “Catharine Arnold”, she 
says. “More alliterative.” 

Art music and writing were 
her only interests, to the 
rebellious exclusion of al! else. 
Aged 15, she left her Notting- 
ham school because "} 
couldn’t stand ii'\ She had 
scrawled “Anarchy" on the 
blackboard. “The}' knew it 
was me because 1 was the only 
one who could spell it I just 
liked getting into trouble. 1 
dyed my hair stupid colours. I 
was constantly bottom of the 
class." She removes her sun- 
glasses. "It strikes me as being 
quite ironic.” 

With a view to becoming a 
graphic designer, she studied 
art at Nottingham's Claren- 
don College. Then, two years 
into the course, she decided to 
up-crayons for Cambridge. “I 

just lost her husband, on the 
eve of inheriting a vast trust 
fond, and she 'requires her 
visitor to impersonate his 
defunct physical double fhow 
she spots the resemblance 
through Mr Rees's layers cf 
rags and facial hair remains 

The visitor pricks his ears 
up and applies himself to the 
masquerade. He is an apt 
pupil. At the first lesson he 
drops references to Shaw and 
Stanislavsky, and by the end 
of a week he has shed his 
Dundee carapace and emerged 
as a Belgravian butterfly well 
able to keep his end up at his 


A • v* 

didn’t find it enough of a 
challenge. U sounds ironic”, 
she says again, “but you’d still 
end up being answerable to 
someone. Though 1 had found 
a whole new vocabulary for 
examining the patterns of light 
and colour [which she uses to 
good effect in Lost Time], 1 
needed more intellectual dis- 
cipline. I wanted to be paid to 
read for three years.” 

She was older than most of 
her Cambridge generation. 
Perhaps as a result “I found a 
degree of insularity and imma- 
turity that was staggering”. 
Reading English at Ginon. she 
wrote her dissertation on Mat- 
thew Arnold's “Scholar 
Gypsy" and called it The Land 
of Dreams. Unlike her protag- 
onists, she had affairs with 
neither students nor dons. 

“I had a reputation for 
being a writer. A friend who | 
did PR for the theatre took it | 
on herself to do PR for me. 
and with an extract from one I 
of several unpublished novels ! 
I won the Rima Allamudin ! 
prize. I 

“Cambridge has this capaci- | 
ty for Bridesheadian self-in- 
dulgence. yet it distrusts the I 
flamboyant. Silence is golden. | 
In Lost Time I tried to get ' 
under the skin of an isolated 
don. He was not based on a 
particular person — more on a 
collection of attitudes, of sto- 
ries halfheard. When I began I 
had this idea of him seducing 
an undergraduate. .As 1 wrote, 
it became the other way 
round. Bui I wanted to show 
tbai everybody is guilty of 
using sex to manipulate peo- 
ple through whom they sleep 
with or through whom they do 
not sleep with.” 

Slightly ruffled that she has 
not yet met anyone who has 
sported the allegiance Lost 
Time owes to The Turn of the 
Screw (“I was going to call it 
The Return of the Screw"). 
Catharine Arnold has com- 
pleted a second very different 
novel. Ic is set in London, 
where she came three years 
ago — her mystery period — to 
work in advertising. “Ad-land 
in many ways resembles fic- 
tion. It's a liar’s profession, a 
bluffer’s profession.” Replac- 
ing her inscrutable glasses, sbe 
denies that she has ever 
written anything directly auto- 
biographical. "People write 
like they act”, she says. “To 
retreat behind others' words. 
It's a form of concealment.”

Arnold is published by 
Hodder & Stoughton at £9.95. 

alter ego's birthday party. It is 
just like rehearsing for a play. 
In due course, the authors 
suppiy an explanation for this 
miraculous transformation. 
Bui. on inis and every similar 
occasion, it comes as a dutiful 
justification for what began as 
an artificial contrivance. And

winded justification it will 

in keeping with its genre, 
the play operates like a series 
of trapdoors opening under 
the spectator's feet, with each 
fresh certainty turning out to 
he another lie. Bui, as it 

accelerates through lesbian- 
ism. a suicide pact and a 
posthumous murder plot, not 
even the growing motif of true 
love between the liars is 
enough to hold it on the rails. 

Mr Rees effects a spectacu- 
lar electrocuted death-fall, 
making an entrance through 
the front door with his corpse 
still lying at the bottom of the 
stairs'. Otherwise he has sup- 
plied material only for sketch- 
es of whom he and Miss 
Lapotaire might be, rather 
than characters whom they 
might have brought to life.

Out of the kindness of their 
hearts (for I can think of no 
other reason) the Northern 
I Sinfonia have commissioned 
a Harp Concerto from Edward 
Cowie, and Tyne-Tees Televi- 
sion have paid for it After its 
premiere in Newscastle on . 
Sunday, it arrived in London 
on Tuesday with its champi- 
oning orchestra. Few people 
were there to hear it, and few, I 
suspect, will want to in the 

Cowie’s inspiration this 
time was apparently derived 
from two sources. Botticelli's 
La primavera and the harp- 
playing of Frances Kelly. Un- 
like Botticelli (and this is a 
surprise, for the composer, 
too. is a painter) Mr Cowie 
shows little discernible excite- 
ment with the disciplines of 
form, colour or texture. Nei- 
ther, more regrettably per- 
haps. does this ill-balanced 
work flatter or even display 
adequately the technical or 
imaginative skills of Ms Kelly. 

Three of the work's four 
movements (they take just 
over half an hour altogether to 
play through) are given titles: 
“Venus”. “The Flight of 
Mercury” and, cryptically, 
“Flora-Judy”. Together with 
fleeting images of Luioslawski 
and Stravinsky, they help the 
mind, if not the ear, to 
distinguish one from another 
for there is too little in their 
dabbling and erratic invention 
to keep them apart. Cowie's 
problem lies, as ever, in 
listening to and managing his 
forces perceptively on the one 
hand, and in either developing 
or sustaining their material 
convincingly on the other. 

If both chamber orchestra 
and soloist were sadly under- 
exploited in this attenuated 
wisp of mood-music, then 
they did at least have some- 
thing to get their teeth into 
earlier and later in the eve- 
ning. The orchestra, under the 
baton of their artistic director. 
Richard Hickox, were careful 
and conscientious accompa- 
nists for Colin Carr's forceful 
if sometimes over- tense, 
Schumann Cello Concerto. 
And Prokofiev's “OassicaT 
Symphony at last freed the 
wind soloists to reveal their 
nor inconsiderable prowess. 
With more assured conduct- 
ing. the concert would have 
ended, at least, in quite some

alert at 

from Dana Geddes 


Five men were exposed to 
radiation in a minor accident 
at a nuclear waste treatment 
plant in Normandy on Tues- 
day, it was revealed yesterday. 

Cogema, a subsidiary of the 
stale-owned Atomic Enemy 
Commission, which -runs the 
plant at La Hague , said the 
five were “irradiated, but. not 
contaminated*', in so for as 
they did not breathe in any 
radioactive particles because 
they were wearing masks. 

They were all allowed home 
after medical tests but, for 
some time, will not be allowed 
to work in any area where 
there is a ride of further 

Two of die workers were 
exposed to radiation well 
above the accepted level of 
five units a year — which is 
said to be considerably lower 
than the danger level. One 
received 18 units, another 1 1, 
and the other three between 
1.6 and 0.7 units. 

The incident, described by 
Cogema as "bothersome ana 
regrettable, but without partic- 
ular importance," occurred 
while the men were decon- 
tanrinatmg-a pipeline. 

The saiyrical weekly, Le 
Canard Encfuunk, carried a 
report on Tuesday claiming 
that a major nuclear catastro- 
phe had been avoided “by a 
hair's breadth" just two years 
ago after an electrical circuit 
foiled at a nuclear power 
station at Bugey, m the Ain.

try Minister, confirmed that

Us statement contrasted 
with rather more conciliatory 
remarks earlier In the day by 
Mr RJ.W Botha, the For-

possibility of "useful discus- 
sion and negotiation” with 

Mack nationalist members of 
the ANC if they were prepared 
to break frith their com m unist 

He also denied that 
Monday's raids had been a 
setback for the Common* •

Output figures and forecast 
suggest economic slowdown 

By Sarah Hogg 
Economics Editor 

Weak output figures re- 
leased yesterday coincided 
with a gloomy independent 
forecast that Britain's eco- 
nomic recovery had lost its 
momentum. . 

Gross domestic product 
(GDP) , rose by only 0.4 per 
cent" in the first quarter of this 
year, half the . rale in the 
previous quarter, according to 
provisional official output- 
based estimates. GDP was 2.5 
percent higher than in die first 
quarter ofl985, but output 
was artificially depressed by 
the miners* strike early i»e 
year. After allowing for this 
factor, GDP grew only about 
1.5 per cent in the year to the 
first quarter of 1986. 

The spring forecast of the 
National Institute for Eco- 
nomic and Social Research, 
published yesterday, suggests 
that output may rise only 1.9 
per cent between 1985 and 
1986 as a whole, significantly 
less than the 3 per cent growth 
forecast by the. Treasury at 
Budget time. The- National 

1980 1981 1982 1983 1984 1985 

Institute forecasts growth of 
only 1.7 per cent in 1987. 

However, the National 
Institute's new forecast still 
suggests that adult unempkiy- 
ment will fell by 70 ,000 tins 
year, and 140,000 next year, as 
the Government's employ- 
ment measures take effect. 

The output figures for the 
first quarter of this year 
confirmed the fell in manufac- 
turing revealed by last week's' 

industrial production figures. 
Manufacturing output fen by 1 
per cent in the quarter, while 
service industries boosted out- 
put by CL5 per cent and 
distribution actitivity remain- 
ed unchanged. 

OQ output increased 5.1 per 
cent in the first quarter, 
reflecting the normal seasonal 
surge in this industry. The rest 
of the economy remained 
broadly flat. 

The National Institute sug- 
gests that output stagnated 
worldwide during the early 
months of this year, and that 
Western Europe was particu- 
larly depressed by bad weath- 
er. However, it expects lower 
inflation — averaging little 
more than 3 per cent in the 
industrial world — to stimu- 
late international growth from 
now on, with output in the 
industrial countries rising by 
3.1 per cent this year and by 
33 per cent next year. 

In Britain, however, the 
National Institute believes 
that “monetary policy is dam- 
aging the prospects for exports 
and investment on which the 
hopes of renewed economic 
recovery depend**. 

The National Institute be- 
lieves the Budget was not “as 
expansionary as it should 
have been** and takes issue 
with the Treasury's forecast of 
investment growth. However, 
it believes inflation will fell 
even lower than the Treasury 
forecast, dropping to 2.8 per 
cent by the end of this year, 
though rising slightly next 

Industry policy defended 

By Edward Townsend, Industrial Correspondent 

The Government returned 
to the offensive yesterday afier 
a fortnight of big manufactur- 
ing industry job losses with a 
claim from Mr Paul Channon, 
the Trade and Industry Secre- 
tary, that Mrs Thatcher’s ad- 
ministration “does have a 
clear and coherent policy to- 
wards industry”.- 

The Government's primary 
ami had been to create a 
climate for wealth creation, 
enterprise and growth. “To do 
so has sometimes called fin* 
tough, painful and unpopular 
decisions; confronting reality 
can often be a painful busi- 
ness. But we have been deter- 
mined to face up to difficult 

Addressing the British Insti- 
tute of Management, Mr 
Channon said the the greatest 
disservice the Government 

could do to industry and the 
unemployed would be to 

ahafuton the battle a gaiif^ t 


■ Those who said the Govern- 
ment had paid for its success 
with the jobs of those now 
unemployed woe “totally 
wrong,” be said. “History and 
experience have shown us that 
inflation and unemployment 
are not alternatives.” 
Recognition of the limita- 
tions of what government 
could achieve was crucial to 
the Government's approach 
to industry; any attempt to try 
to gpidg industry in a direc- 
tion the market did not wish it 
to go was almost bound to feiL 
“There may be exceptional 
cases when it is necessary for 
Government to intervene. But 
we should always remember 
that once a company is pre- 

vented from doing what it 
believes to be in its best 
commercial interests, it may 
be given a competitive handi- 
cap which in the long run 
could bring it down.” 

The Government should 
not turn its back on industry’s 
needs after setting the eco- 
nomic dimale, “but our job is 
not to dictate to industry bow 
we think it should behave.” 
Mr Channon attacked the 
Labour Party's proposed cen- 
tral and regional industrial 
planning controls which, he 
said, would “create jobs for a 
lot of bureaucrats but destroy 
thousands of jobs elsewhere.” 
“The truth is that every 
attempt by Government to 
superimpose its view on bow 
industry should develop has 
merely shown its inability to 
second guess the market.”

Financial Correspondent 

S&W Berisford yesterday 
announced a sharp increase in 
interim pretax profits 24 
hours after rival bids for the 
company were referrred to the 
Monopolies and Mergers 
Commission. Coffee trading 
and financial services were the 
main sources of the higher 

Pretax profits for the six 
months to the end of March 
rose more than 25 per cent 
from £29 million to £36.5 
million, although the divi- 
dend was held at 3.5p. Earn- 
ings per share were 13.63p 
against I U4p. 

But the combination of the 
referral of the bids from Tate 
& Lyle and HiUsdown Hold- 
ings, the food and manufac- 
turing group, and the 
improved profits has accom- 
panied a change of heart at 

Mr Ephraim Margulies, 
chairman and chief executive, 
had wanted to sell British 
Sugar and engineer a private 
management buyout of other 
assets. Yesterday, however, he 
suggested the emphasis would 
be on improving the return on 
assets at British Sugar and 
keeping S&W Berisford a 
public company. 

Mr Marguiies sakt “If we 
achieve our goals we will be 
less interested in selling”. He 
hoped to increase the return 
on British Sugar's assets from 
around 11 per cent to 15 per 
cent. Pretax profits from sugar 
and animal feeds were virtual- 
ly unchanged at £22.6 million.

BCal last week announced 
plans for 1,090 job cats, a 
reduction in flights and the

an effort to head off substan-

The airline said yesterday 
that despite the difficulties 
BCal was not looking for a ,

Cathay Pacific, the 
Kong airline. 

Cathay has long been seen

A cautionary tale on 
National Bus selloff 

Just weeks before the expected firs! 
sale of a National Bus Company 
subsidiary to its management, the 
publication yesterday of the 1985 
accounts cannot help but sound a note 
of caution about the privatized and 
deregulated future. Even in a year 
when turnover grew by 7 per cent and 
the nationalized company registered 
its first increase in passengers, operat- 
ing profits foil by £10 million to £35.8 

Inevitably, in preparation for 
privatization, there has been some 
tidying up: both redundancy costs and 
maintenance spending were higher. 
After allowing for this, however, 
operating margins were still down and 
working expenses per mile were up. 
And deregulation in October is ex- 
pected to cut fares on profitable 

At the bottom line, clearing the 
decks cost £103 million in extraor- 
dinary charges - including a substan- 
tial deferred tax provision - leading to. 
a record net loss of £8S million 
compared with a £22 million net 
profit the previous year. 

Against this background the 
managements of the 70 subsidiaries 
are being encouraged, and subsidised 
by up to £50,000 each for legal costs, 
to mount buy-outs. The response so 
for has been everything for which the 
Government could have hoped, with 
almost all the management teams 
expressing an interest There are also 
potential outside bidders for 51 

There are still considerable un- 
certainties about the commercial 
viability of some of the companies 
and the future of uneconomic, but 
socially desirable, bus routes. 

NBC last year received £62 million 
in subsidies from the shire councils 
and, on top of this, supported 
unprofitable routes through cross- 
subsidies to the tune of around £65 
million. If the councils continue to 
provide funds the new local bus 
companies will tender for those 
services and, while Rodney Lund, 
chairman of NCB., hints darkly at 
remedies from the competition agen- 
cies, the NCB companies will have to 
hope for even-handedness in this 
process. Cross-subsidies, on the other 
hand, should simply disappear as 
margins suffer through competition 
and companies are forced to improve 

. Privatization will certainly - not 
make much money for the Treasury 
directly. The subsidiaries have a book 
value of some £1 55 million but a more 
rigorous approach to depreciation, in 
line with the rest of the industry, 
would lower this to around £100 
million. The sum of the parts will be 
worth less than the whole, so- the 
Government may end up simply 
recouping the £79.4 million still owed 
to the Department of Transport, some 
of which dates back to NBC’s 1968 
formation. ■ . 

A higher price would be likely if Mr 
Lund was willing to entertain pro- 
posals from property developers, but 

he is adamant that all the companies 
are to be sold as businesses and that 
mortgage charges are to be put on the 
properties so that any future change of 
use will result in further payments. 

The point of privatization, in any 
case, is to reduce overall subsidies 
without hacking away at services. It is 
anyone's guess if this will be achieved. 

Computer babble 

Yesterday’s announcement of the new 
computerized Taurus system for 
rele gatin g the share certificate to relic 
status followed yet another break- 
down in the Slock Exchange's existing 
computer systems. As well as leading 
to dissemination of out-of-date 
information to some Stock Exchange 
information subscribers (including 
The Times and its readers) this forced 
yet another suspension of dealings on 
the traded options market while tire 
breakdown was rectified. . . 

Traded options dealers may well 
hold their hands up in despair -and 
wonder when it is all going to end. The 
disruption of dealings in the-market 
on Tuesday was the fifth time this has 
happened sines February 20. On 
March 24 the market foiled to open at 
all, an expensive failure which co- 
incided with the introduction of a new 
computerized system for matching 
bargains in the market 
It is all very well for the Stock 
Exchange to announce the ambitious 
£6 million plan for Taurus, to come 
into effect m 1989. In the meantime 
the existing systems for traded options 
dealings are clearly in need of over- 
haul Time is definitely not on the 
Stock Exchange's side here. Traded 
option volumes might be setting 
records at the moment for the market 
has finally turned into a great success 
story. Come the big bang in October, 
however, market experts are predict- 
ing that traded options business will 
grow tenfold. 

The dealers deserve a full explana- 
tion of the problems that the Stock 
Exchange is having with options 
dealing systems. Rumours at the 
moment are rife, most of them 
focusing on the inadequacy of the 
exchange's software. Some say that it 
simply cannot cope with the level of 
bargains. Others, who include senior 
participants in the market, jdaim that 
the new in-house clearing syslemTTo 
which the Stock Exchange recently 
switched, is fundamentally incompat- 
ible with the method by which 
dealings are normally reported. 

One broker explained with feeling: 
“They are using a system which 
inherently does not work. It requires 
human beings to behave in a way that 
they have never done before.” 

The Stock Exchange says that 
everything is hunky dory despite the 
intemiptionsLTbey are working , on 
enhancements to the hardware and 
software of the clearing system, which 
it considers compatible with the way 
option bargains have always been

Lager profits reach all 
parts of Whitbread 

Wall Street rally boosts gilts 

Beer is a declining proportion 
of Whitbread's income — 
accounting for just under half 
of trading profits, accor ding 
lo the latest results. Yet itis 
still capable of showing sig- 
nificant profit growth, illus- 
trating the value of having 
veiy strong brand names like 
Hetneken and Stella Artois. 

Nationally, 41 per cent of 
all beer sold is lager. In 
Whitbread's case. Lager ac- 
counts for 47 per cent of its 
beer sales, and is expected to 
reach 50 per cent soon. 

The total UK brer market 
declined by 0.7 per cent last 
year, but Whitbread managed 
to show a volume increase, 
mainly in lager. This allowed 
beer brewing and wholesaling 
profits to increase by IS per 
cent to £81 million in the year 
to March 1. 1986. 

All segments did wen, al- 
lowing pretax profit to rise by 
17.7 per cent to £129.6 mil- 
lion on turnover up 62 per 
cent Wines and spirits in- 
creased by more than 26 per 

Shareholders are caution- 
ed, however, not to expect 
this rate of growth next year 
as it was due to the inclusion 
of the Buckingham acquisi- 
tion in the US for the first 
I time. 

Increasingly, beer produc- 
tion has become Whitbread's 
cash cow, providing the liq- 
uid resources (in every sense 
of the word) for expansion in 
both the retailing division 
and the wines and spirits 
division, not just in Britain 
but also increasingly in the 
US. These two segments now 
account for 33 per cent and 
19 per cent of profits 

This move away from beer 
also decreases the previously 
strong bias in earnings to- 
wards the first Half, Retailing 
and wines and spirits are 
! much more geared towards 
Christmas, resulting in a 
profit mix which is now more 
equally divided between the 
two halves of the year. As 
retailing and wines and spir- 
its continue to grow in impor- 
tance. the seasonal bias is 
expected to swing the other 
way, making the second half 
the more important in terms 

of profit 
in 1986-87, capital spend- 
ing will be considerably in- 
creased over last year’s £65 
million. Like last year, most 
of the expenditure will be at 
the front end of the business, 
in pubs and restaurants: 1 
On present form, a further 
15 per cent rise in pretax 

profit to £150 million in 
1986-87 looks possible. The 
tax charge is continuing to 
nse from 28 per cent to 
around 33 per cent so at 
29lp, the shares are on a 
multiple of a little over 1 1 
tunes prospective earnings. 

This means that they stand 
at a discount to the sector 
whjch is only partly ex- 
plained by the feet that their 
voting structure makes 
practically bid proof • 


Bass has proved that it is still 
possible to increase profits in 
a stagnant beer market with- 
out straying too far from 

The company's interim re- 
sults, published yesterday, 
show more than 85 per cent 
of pretax profit still comes 
from its brewing, drinks and 
pub retailing division, mak- 
ing it the least diversified of 
the big brewers. 

In the first half year to 
April 12, beer sales by vol- 
ume were unchanged. The 
after-effects of the Runcorn 
dispute adversely affected 
sales in the early pan of the 
period, but since January, 
Bass has been increasing 
market share. Lager sales in 
particular have prospered, 
and the p remium brands, 
Tennent’s Extra, Tennent's 
Super and Lamot, did out- 
standingly well 
Profits from the drinks 
division increased by 1 7.3 per 
cent, and pretax profits for 
the company as a whole, 
excluding property gains, 
jumped 18.5 per cent to 
£118.2 million. Gains on 
sales of property added a 
further £12 million to profiL 
Consequently, the market 
was pleasantly surprised by 
these results 

At a multiple of around 1 3, - 
the top brewer may not yet be 
at a high enough premium to 
the sector. 

London and 

London and Northern is 
again expanding in the Mid- 
dle East, despite its recent 
unhappy experiences there. It 
is tendering for hospital man- 
agement contracts in Bagh- 
dad and Saudi Arabia, and is 
confident of a pick-up in 

This resurgence of activity 
comes after the settlement of 
legal proceedings on an un- 
specified contract. Last year 
the company gave a warning 

of a potential £15.5 million 
liability, but in January it 
said that the proceedings had 
been dropped. London and 
Northern recently terminated 
the agreement at the centre of 
the dispute at an extraordi- 
nary cost of £6.5 million. 

Last year’s accounts also 
include a £3.7 million provi- 
sion above the line for losses 
on hospital equipment con- 
tracts, mainly arising from 
the liquidation of Lafrig 
Wimpey Alireza, the joint 
venture involving John 
Laing, George Wimpey and a 
Saudi partner. London and 
Northern has submitted 
claims for these losses. 

The company says that its 
overseas operations have 
been restructured at a net cost 
of £1.3 million, charged be- 
low the line as an extraordi- 
nary item. The company 
would clearly like sharehold- 
ers to believe that this means 
similar disasters will not re- 
occur. In reality, problem 
contracts are a risk of any 
kind of contracting, especial- 
ly overseas. 

As a result of the £3.7 
million provision and ex- 
change rate movements cost- 
ing £3.5 million, the health 
care division's contribution 
fell from £l 1 milli on to £5.9 

Construction was down 
from £6.1 million to £5.9 
million, with the bad weather 
the main culprit Building 
products, however, made 
£3.9 million, up from £1.4 
million, including a £3 mil- 
lion eight-month 
contribution from Rockville 
Crushed Stone of America. 

Pretax profits fell from 
£ 1 8.4 million to £1 2.S million 
after a jump in interest 
charges from £4J miBiiw to 
£8.2 million. 

Unfortunately, the ratio of ' 
borrowings to shareholders' 
funds was unchanged at 70 
per cent, against an expected 
fell to 30 percent Apart from 
the provisions, the main rea- 
son was the delay in three 
property safes, two of which 
should take place this year. 
But the company is consider- 
ing other ways of reducing the 
gearing ratio, including the 
flotation of the cellular radio 
company, Tactico, and the 
housebuilding subsidiary. 

If profits were to recover to 
the 1984 level the prospective 
p/e ratio would be 6 with the 
shares at 76p. On tire main- 
tained dividend the yield is 
9.6 per cent That rating 
allows for a few more prob- 
lem contracts. 

International Thomson dips 

International Thomson 
Organisation gave a warning 
yesterday that profits from its 
oil and &zs interests would fell 
further later this year. 

It is maintaining oil produc- 
tion from its existing fields in 
the North Sea and says devel- 
opment of the Balmoral and 
Scapa fields is continuing on 
schedule. It is not,, however,

In the three months to 
March 31, pretax profits fell 
by £1 million to £21 million, 
after a sharp but imquantified 
drop in the oil and gas 
contribution, reflecting a fell 
in the average price of oil from 
£24 to £14 per barrel for the 
quarter. The present price is 
less than £10 a barrel.

The Annual General Meeting of Sun Affiance 
and London Insurance pic was held yesterday at 
the Head Office of the Company in Bartholomew 
Lane, London E.C-2. 

McH.U.A. Lambert the Chairman, presided 

and in addressing the Meeting stated - 

“As you will know, it is our practice at the 
Annual General Meeting to give an indication of 
the results for the first quarter although we do 
not publish detailed figures. I should point out, 
of course, that the experience of one quarter 
alone is an unreliable guide to the full yearls

seriously affected by weather claims jand it *

much about the same as for last year. Neverthe- 
less, there a reduced underwriting loss on

Results from overseas have been rather better 
and most tetritories have reported improved 

Although investment income and life profits

A 26-point recovery on 
Wall Street on Tuesday gave 
the stock market a fresh boost 
yesterday. Business turnover 
was still slack, but speculative 
issues saw plenty of activity. 

The pace was slow and an 
early mark-up in prices failed 
to hold. However, as the day 
progressed, confidence gradu- 
ally returned so that by the 
official dose, the tone was

Gilts set the pace from the 
start by climbing over a point 
behind the two-point jump in 
US bonds overnight Howev- 
er, these gains were trimmed 
to about five-eighths later in 
the session. 

Among equities, demand 
was selective. Beechara at 
378p and Glaxo at 985p were 
among top names to attract 
late American support, up by 
13p and 18p respectively- But 
the most active share of the 
day was Bools, still excited by 
the appointment of Sir Philip 
Harris to the board of Fisons, 
which led many speculators to 
anticipate a possible fisons 
bid for the company.

Record rise in banks’ 
international lending 

By Richard Thomson, Banking Correspondent 

Internationa] banking activ- 
ity experienced a sharp accel- 
eration towards the end of last 
year. Total external assets of 
banks in the 20 most industri- 
alized nations rose by a record 
amount in the third quarter. 

There was also a pack-up in 
new final lending by the 
banks,.while lending to devel- 
oping countries more than 
donned despite the- persis- 
tence of the international debt 

Lending in the syndicated 
loan market sank to its lowest 

level for 15 years. 

The evidence ofa continued 
revival in international bank- 
ing activity since its low in 
1983 came yesterday in the 
quarterly report of the Bank 
for International Settlements, 
which monitors banking ac- 
tivity in the most developed 

The final quarter of last year 
saw a record increase of $124

jP^ When it comes to 

specialise d warehousing! 

weVe got our 
rfiree million feel 

As we are an industrial services group 
specialising in international distribution, it might 
be supposed that our success is based on an ability 
to move things. 

This is not entirely accurate: we also look 
after them when they’re stationary 

Indeed McGregor Cory our warehousing 
business, does a good deal more than that We 
handle everything from storage to shrink-wrapping, 
from quality control to delivery -a range of services 
which, allied to the geographical spread of our 
warehouses, has won us over three hundred major 
industrial clients. 

Given this, it’s hardly surprising that our 
business is now a sizeable one. 

Yet it’s still quite striking to think that 
McGregor Cory Banbury our tea warehousing 

operation, is currently storing enough tea for 
around 5 billion cuppas. 

In feet, with our other warehouses for pro- 
ducts such as cocoa, coffee and rubber; we are the 
largest scorer of commodities in the UK- 

Added to which we have specialised ferilities 
for everything from hi-fi to wines and spirits. 

And as well as our specialised warehouses 
in the UK, we have others in Belgium, Holland, 
Germany and Italy - a total of over three million 
strategically placed square feet. 

Needless to say we’re planning 
to expand. 

After all, 

the more feet we 

have, the more we . „ , 

can handle. We can handle it.

Landau completes £ 1 8 m buyout 


By Judith Huntley 

City Merchant Developers, 
tee property company set up 
by Mr Martin Landau as the 
result ; of a management 

hnvnnl nf n. _ . 

Properties,' came into being 
this week. 

It was a complicated £J 8 
million deal. Mr Landau, 
former managing di r ec tor of 
Guinness Peat Properties, said 
it was “like buying a develop- 
ment company half-way 
through its life". 

The new -company involves 
a mixture of loan stock and 
equity with its principal share- 
holders and guarantees from 
Bankers Trust, its financial 
adviser. In addition, there 
were various development 
partnerships to sort out on the 
portfolio itself which has 10 
developments in Britain and 
two investment properties. 

Mr Landau jokingly admit- 
ted that if he had known how 
complicated it would be to 
finalize the buyout, be might 
never have, tackled iL 

But CMD is now estab- 
lished and. as a property 
Under, expects to share in the 
present voguefor such compa- 
nies. Bui -it is not going to' 
follow the likes of Arlington 
Securities to the market. In- 
stead it will be looking to buy a 
30 per cent stake in a quoted 

property company, while itself

. The company i$ capitalized 
- at £10.25 minion, its net asset 
value. Mr Landau intends to 
build a strong asset base and

growth to even out lumpy 
development profits which 
often characterize trading 
com panies 

Bankers Trust is making 
£3Z7 million available to 
CMD in the shape of medium- 
term. loans and guarantees. 
This will aUow the -company 
to buy devdopment interests, 
investment properties . and 
look for other opportunities. 

. Guinness Pieal has an op- 
tion over 25 per edit of the 
company, underwritten by 
Bankers Trust. Mr i*n«fay 
and his family interests hold 
25 per cent of the equity. 
Other big shareholders in- 
clude Sir Robert McAlpine & 
Sons with 15 per cent and 
Equitable life with the same 

Mr Landau intends to refi- 
nance the investment side of 
the company . He believes that 
deficit financing, common in 
the property market for so 
long, win soon be frowned 
.upon. The time is close when 
rental income, will match de- 
velopment costs he says. 

CMD’s income will come 
from three sources. Rental

The LEP Group's redevelopment of its City of London riverside site has given it an 
asset worth £70 million. The 190,000 sq ft building near Blackfriars, which cost 
£40 minion to develop has been pre-let to Swiss Bank Corporation International 
which win sob-let 70,000 sq ft- The rent is ova: £30 a sq fit. It is a sign of the times 
that the scheme will not be a deficit financing deaL Lazard Brothers, the merchant 
bank advising LEP, says that medium-term funding Is in train for the development 
which, given present interest rates will be adequately covered by rental income. 
LEP was advised by St Qnintm and James Andrews & Partners. Hillier Parker 
acted for Swiss Baft. Speyhawk (Project Management) will be project manager. 

income and project manage- 
ment fees — foe company is to

dau, with development profits 
being the king on the cake.

the Tower of London at the 
Docklands Light Railway sta-

. The company hopes to see a

cent share of To wergate, a

by Britel Fund Trustees. And

Fewer new buildings are ' .

total area available for sale 
or letting fell by 7.7 per cent 
to 136 million sq ft. 

King & Co reports that 
there is a shortage of good, 
well-located industrial 
space in many areas. The rea- 
son for this is that rental 
growth has been too poor to 
allow developers to build at 
a profit And the strati de-

lost his last-ditch attempt to 
win consent for a 1 mflfion

centre near Leicester. 

Three Law Lords upheld the 
decision of the Secretary of 
State for the Environment 
MrKeoneto Biker, to ^ 

refuse consent for the Centre 
“ 21 scheme because of the 
adverse effect it might hare on 
Leicester’s trade. 

The developer of Centre j 
21 produced evidence to stow 
that Leicester city centre 
trade could suffer a 10-6 per 

emit loss of business once 

The decision, however, 
does not mean that every pro- 
posed out-of-town centre 
would have to pass a 10 per 
cent rule oa its impact oa

. mete m the Envfromiieiit 
says that every case wiB be 
examined oa its merits and 
that there will be no blanket

• This year is proving to 
be a critical one in the evolu- 
tion of the British comme^ 
dal property market. 
Investment, development, 
property marketing and man- , 
agemeat principles are 
having to adapt and cope with 
structural changes in near- 
ly every sector of the market, 
and the pace of change 

comes in marked contrast to . 
the relative stability of re- • 
cent years. 

That is the verdict of 

Jones LangWoottonin to ht- 1 
est review m the rapidly . 
changing world in which tee

Jones Lang has allied it- 
self firmly with proposals to

pany, is. jikdy to be a keen 
bidder for tee plot, which' is 
next to its 760,000sq ft office 
development at ' Victoria 

Mr David Rumanian, the 
director of- Richard 'Ellis’s 
Hong Kong office, expects a 
high price to be paid for the 
government she. He says there 
is a strong demand for office 
space in Hong Kong and, 
although there will be about 3 

3'h :<y -’ 


million sq; ft of high-quality 
space coming on to the market 
in the next 18 months, he does 
not foresee a drop in rents. 

He says that there is pent-up 
demand in the colony, where 
the financial services sector is 
growing rapidly. Swire has 
pre-let 150,000 sq ft of its 
Victoria Barracks scheme, 
which includes a 700-bed- 
room Marriott hoteL

for the company to proceed

Opec talks 
ruled out 
by Britain 

By David Yonng 
Energy Correspondent 
The Department of Energy 
has ruled our making any 
change in its present policy on 
oil output, despite requests 
from Norway to co-operate 
with it m a foint approach to 
the Organization of Petroleum 
Exporting Countries (Opec). 

Mr Alick Bachanan-Smhh, 
the Energy Minister, said 
yesterday that government 
policy will remain unchanged 
and that the pace of oik output 
from Britain's North Sea and 
onshore oil fields will remain a 
matter for the operating 

He said: “We will continue 
onr policy of meeting other oil- 
producing nations individual- 
ly, but we will not be involved 
in talks with Opec.” 

It is likely that Norway will 
be represented at the next full 
Opec meeting in Yugoslavia 
on June 25 and the new 
Norwegian government has 
asked Britain to consider co- 
operating in reducing oil out- 
put to help push up world oil 

Mr Buchanan-Smltb yester- 
day inaugurated Britain’s 
newest onshore oil field at 
Welton, near Lincoln, which is 
operated by BP. It will soon 
reach full production of 3,000 
barrels a day, after starting at 
600 barrels a day. 

Mr Buchanan-Smltb said: 
“Onshore development is to- 
tally dependent for its success 
on goodwill and liaison be- 
tween the oil company and the 
local community.**

A guide to career 

The new old girls’ network 

"\ always thought that somewhere 
there must be a group of women who got 
together regularly to talk about issues at 
work and who gave each other moral 
support", says Jackie Moulton, one of 
three Detective Inspectors in the Metro- 
politan Police Force. 

As a manager at a senior level in an es- 
sentially male environment, she ex- 
presses the view of many women 
climbing the career ladder. Women like 
Jackie Moulton are frequently highly 
visible and can feel very isolated 
Although there may be other women in 
their organizations, there are likely to be 
few at the same level with whom they 
can relax and discuss problems. 

The solution came last year when she 
got in touch with Network. Started five 
years ago by Irene Harris, Network 
provides an inter-disciplinary fornm for 
women at a senior level to share mutual 
interests and problems. It is one of a 
growing number of network groups that 
have sprung up round the country to 
answer the needs of women at work. 

Men. of course, have long known 
about the value of belonging to a group 
where problems can be discussed, ideas 
exchanged and contacts made. Women 
on the way up have had no automatic en- 
tree into these informal dubs. The key to 
the executive washroom has not un- 
locked the door to the power, decision 
making and contact swapping that goes 
on in the "locker or the smoke-filled 

There are three main kinds of Net- 
work. although in practice they share 
manv of the same aims and results. 
Firstly those like Network which admit 
high achievers from any discipline. 
Secondly, networks which cater to the 
needs of women at whatever level, in an 
industry or profession, like Women in 
Banking and thirdly, company specific 
groups like Women in BP. which seek to 
promote the development of women in a 
particular company. 

Women at a senior level can 
now share their problems 

"Many Network members", says Ju- 
dith Thompson, responsible for compet- 
itive business development worldwide 
for ICL. "operate like me in an 
essentially all male environment It is 
easy to become very isolated and to 
begin to feel that you need to be a better 
version of one of the boys. It is easy to 
become un female." 

Women managers frequently begin to 
question their own management style 
and to assume that to succeed they have 
to become more masculine. Caroline 
Riley of Women in Banking, experienced 
this in her previous job as an assistant 
manager at the Bank of America. "My 
style was not the same as my male 
colleagues. 1 was able to talk this through 
with Beryl Bakewell, another member of 
Women in Banking and found that our 
styles are the same. Beryl is an extremely 
successful marketing manager at Hypo 
Bank, so I began to understand that I did 
not need to ape men's management 

Women climbing the 
corporate ladder can 
often feel quite isolated. 
Corinne Julius examines 
Network, an emerging 
forum for those on 
their way to the top 

styles. I could be myself." 

Jackie Moulton, boss to twenty-six 
detectives, feels that peer group pressure 
can make you feel vulnerable. "You 
begin to question yourself and you can 
lose confidence in your judgement and 
actions." Finding that women from 
other walks of life had similar self- 
doubts, and learning how they had 
coped, gave her a tremendous boost and 
helped her to establish a balance. 

Women also experience a pressure to 
perform. As one networking woman put 
it, "If you do twenty good things and one 
bad thing as a woman you are remem- 
bered for the failure. Women are just not 
allowed to have bad days. You can see 
male colleagues not performing as well, 
but they can get away with it. It is morale 
boosting to find that even the most 
successful women need support "Seeing 
others overcome their problems helps in 
solving your own," says Jackie Moulton. 

Few women who join networks are 
natural joiners and most are more than a 
liule intimidated by meeting influential 
women. To their delight these "impor- 
tant women" are not expensively 
dressed, aggressive harridans, but a 
powerful source of support 

Friendship with other women at a 
similar level or with the same interest is 
important in overcoming isolation but 
also in solving professional difficulties. 
"If I wanted to discuss a work related 
problem ” says Judith Thompson “I 
simply did not have female friends in the 
profession. I did not have access to the 
same relationship that men build upu.. 
The benefits of being a network member 
have been many, but a major advantage 
is the possibility of developinga range of 

friends and people that you can trust for 
an honest response.^ on a personal and , 
business leveL" ... 

Beryl Bakewell has found being a 
member of Women in Banking very 
useful personally and professionally. 
Initially several of her male colleagues 
saw Women in Banking “as some kind of 
tea burning feminist group" but when 
through this network. Beryl was able to 
make the “right" contacts In other 
institutions, they were impressed. 

In feet men in the financial world not 
from the right old boy backgrounds are 
somewht envious. . 

Networks for specific professions also 
give members exposure to senior figures 
in the industry. Says Beryl Bakewell, 
"Many people I do not know, know who 
I am.” The importance of raising the 
profile of women is central to in- 
company networks. Mary Anderson, an 
economic analyst and chairman of 
Women in BP. says: “As a group we have 
attracted senior management to our 
meetings and in our experience the 
simple fact of the existence of Women in 
BP serves to increase awareness of 
women's career issues to both men and 
women in the company." 

Women in BP was set up with 
company backing. Using a mixture of 
formal and informal contacts it has 
developed a voice that is listened to. Like 
most networks, Women in BP has a 
programme combining speaker’s meet- 
ings and informal get togethers. 

Most networks organise training for 
their members covering specific topics of 
professional interest, the improvement 
of management techniques as well as 
women's development programmes, like 
assertiveness training. 

They also offer the more obvious side 
of networking — contacts who can be 
used for business. Says Mary Anderson: 
"Networking helps women find out what 
jobs are likely to be coining up elsewhere 
in the company. You can contact a 

It Is no longer necessary to 
ape men’s management style 

woman in that department and ask what 
it is like and what is happening.’* 

"You have a directory of members 
whose activities cover a wide spectrum, 
if you need advice on financial pfenning 
or on a medical matter you know that 
you can consult a member. If they cannot 
help, they will put you in touch with 
someone who can" says Irene Harris— a 
.facility that men's networks have iradi-’ 
tionally provided. Many networks are 
just beginning, but those which have 
been around for a while are, as Irene 
Harris puls it, "Coining out of their 
infancy and as they grow up need to 
become involved publicly in issues that 
affect women."

Mexico Qty (Renter) — 

Diego Maradona is confident 
J that Argentina can produce a 
(better performance in the 
rthcoming World Cup than 
in the 1982 finals in Spain. 
Tire Argentines, the defending 
champions four yean ago, 
ilea to live up to their billing 
I as favourites and were elimi- 
I naied in the second round. 

Recalling he was sent off in 
his last match in the 1982 
finals, a defeat by Brazil 
midfield, player Maradona 
said: “I'm more mature now, 
but 1 haven't changed as a 
ryer or a person.” He added 
I ire had pm the incident behind 

Maradona answered com- 
plaints by Argentine critics 
that- coach Canos. Bilardo’s 
tactics kept the players in a 
straitjackeL *Tm tired of hear- 
ing that. Carlos gives us full 
freedom of movement on the 
pitch,” he said. 

Maradona played down 
England's . 3-0 victory over 
I hosts Mexico in a warm-up 
match . in Los Angeles on 
Saturday, and said: “The re-

“The same top players as in 
the last World Cup are in the 
running for the mantle of the 
world’s best," he said.’Tbe

for the good coaches. They

Valdano said Mexico's alti-

decisive. The physical advan- 
tages of the European sides 
would be reduced in these 
conditions, which favoured 
the South Americans, but he 
said France and Spain had the 
skill to overcome the 

“The Spanish have at last 
put aside their renowned fighi-

problems with his skill in dead 
ball situations,” Valdano 

Valdano was surprised at 
England’s performance in 
their victory over Mexico.

This is tire fourth time the 
FIFA Cup, named after tire body 
governing the world game, win 
be awarded. It made its first 
rearancem West Germany in 
1974 after Brazil had won the 
Jules Rimet Trophy . outright 
after' securing three tournament 
victories on July 21, 1970, in 

That trophy, the original 
World Cup, was stolen in 
December, 1983, flora its show- 
case at tbp headquarters of the 
Brazilian Football Federation 
and has not been recovered. 

Unlike tire Jules Rimet Tro- 
phy, the current award remains 
in the custody of FIFA; the. 
winners receive a replica. 

“Its exhibition has ended, and 

it will not be shown again until 
the inaugural day,” Bena Jua- 
rez. the committee’s general co- 
ordinator, said. “It is already 
under custody in the vaults of 
the National Bank of Mexico 
(one of the tournament’s main 

The trophy completed its tour 
of the eight World Cup sites 
outside Mexico City on Mon- 
day. Weighing little more than 
1 1 pounds, it is a sculpture, by 
the Italian, Silvio Gazzanica, of 
a globe hoisted by a woman in 
flowing robes. 

Officials of the organizing 
committee say the decision 
against an exhibition in the 
capital was made for security 
reasons. The defending cham- 
pions, Italy, formally brought 
the cup here before the draw in 
December. It then toured the 
provinces — Puebla. Qnereiaro, 
Nezahualcoyotl, Irapuato, 
Laron. Guadalajara. Toluca and 
Monterrey — before returning to 
the capital. 

Budapest (AP) — Two key 
players are missing from the 22- 
man squad which has been 
announced by Gyoergy Mezcy. 
the manager of Hungary, for the 
World Cup finals. The Hungar- 
ians will fly to Mexico on 

Mezey selected the players 
following a training camp pe- 
riod in an Austrian high-altitude 
mountain resort. Missing are 
the forwards • Andras 
Toeroecsik. still unfit following 
a foot operation, and Tiber 
Nyilasi, who is recovering flora 
a recent spine operation. 

Brazilian supporters feel lha. 
by picking their team a» 
favourites to win next month 5 
World Cup finals, London book; 
makers have put fame ahead o: 
form. “EiShs.- those bookmakers 
are bluffing or the} know noth- 
ing about football.” a disillu- 
sioned Brazilian supporter ssii-< 

Ten days before the start cf 
competition, fans awl critics 
complain that Brazil still haw 
no clear first team, lack tactic* 
and have limited individual tal- 
ent. Furthermore, the Brazilian* 
are unlikely to be as heavily 
supported as expected. 

“With the government's eco- 
nomic package, which frore 
prices giving back to people 
their purchasing power, w 
hoped an estimated 39.0£ii 
Brazilians would go to Mexico. 
Now we expect no more tfcaa 
15,000," a leading travel agency 
spokesman said.

Ton in bo Cerszo p?-'iaed b;: _

past achievements, supporters 
were concerned whether the

the second round. 

Brazil are booked in group D 
with Spain. Northern Ireland 
and Algeria, they open on Jane 
I. against Spain in Guadalajara. 
“ if Zico is unfit to play the 
World Cep. then we might as 
well give it all up,” said one 
supporter. Zico twisted bis left

Brazil's current bad form has 
been partly biamefi on cvacb 
Tele Santana's insistence 01 . 
including 1982 veterans and oc 
off-lbe-fieW administrative er- 
rors by officials. 

“Brazil's biggest advantage 
over other teams in 1970 wa> the 
fact that they went through a 
long period of acclimatisation to 
the Mexican altitude in 
Guanajuato," columnist 
Oldemario Tougaioho wrote in 
the Jomal do Brasil. “This liras, 
while all other teams arc follow- 
ing the example, Brazil are only 
at Toluca for one week and do 
not know what will h 2 ppen 
next," t ouguinho said. 

According to some critics, the 
only thing which favours 5 razi! 
is a superstition that in the three 
times the squad left without the 
blessing of their fans, they came _ 
back as champions — in 195f . 
1962 and 1970. In 1%6 ana 
1982, when Brazil failed to reach 
tile semifinals, the team, de- 
parted with the support of over- 
confident fans.

Mexico Cny (AP) — The 
World Cup tournament is a 
magnet for soccer fans, but high- 
priced tickets are prompting 
many would-be spectators to say 
they'll have, to watch at home. 
Many fans in this soccer-crazy 
counny will be watching the 
cup’s 52 matches on television, 
instead of in the stadiums as 
they would have liked to, be- 
cause tickets are not affordable. 

Even package tour sales in 
soccer-mad Europe are not as 
strong as organize!* had antici- 
pated. Octavio Fernandez, the 
spokesman for the organizing 
committee, estimated 6$ per 
cent of the 3,000,000 tickets 
placed on the market Iasi year 
have been sold. This indudes 
42.000 sets of tickets placed with 
travel agents which have been 
sold abroad. 

An estimated 85 per cent of 
tickets most be sold for the 
organizers to break even — a 
figure most Mexican sports 
writers doubt will be achieved. 
The 1982 World Cup in Spain 
sold 82 per cent, and that was a 

For Mexicans, a severe eco- 
nomic crisis that began in 1982 
has halved purchasing power. 
The cheapest set of tickets for 
six preliminary matches in 
Irapuato, a farm town 195 miles 
north-west of Mexico City, costs 
the equivalent of SI09 (£70). 

The minimum wage, which 
most Mexicans earn, comes to 
about S3.1 5 dollars a day at the 
current exchange rales of 530 
pesos per dollar. 

Mexico's giant, privately- 
owned television network 
Televisa, which bought all 
broadcasting rights, estimates a 
cumulative total of 12.000 mil- 
lion viewers will watch the 52 
games worldwide. Up to now 
the organizers have not made 
public, the figures on finances, 
including the revenues from 
television rights. 

Authorities in dozens of cities 
and towns throughout Mexico 
are planning to set up giant 
television screens in public pla- 
zas so people who do not own 
television sets can watch the 

Even , in Western Europe, 
which is experiencing some 
economic problems package 
tour sales are not as high os 
travel agents would like them to 

English Football Association 
spokesman David Boom field 
estimates 5.000 to 7,000 British 
fans will travel to Mexico, but 
only about 2.000 will do so on 
packaged tours."The vast 
majority of them are going 
under their own steam, making 
accomodation plans when they 
get there.” said Geoffrey Picket 

of the travel agency Mexican 

Many will be taking cul-rate 
flights to Monterrey, about 500 
miles north of Mexico City, 
where England are playing Mo- 
rocco. Poland and Portugal. 

In Belfast. Maurice Guy. a 
travel agent, raid he expected to 
sell 1,500 to 2.000 sets of tickets 
for fans eager to watch Northern 
Ireland. But he said a good 
many will travel as cheaply as 
possible, with one group Hying 
to New York and then traveling 
to Mexico by excursion bus. 

Gerg Lc id i tiger, a spokesman 
for the West German Central 
Travel Bureau, estimated about 
1.000 Germans will be buying 

About 1,000 will also be 
coming from France, according 
to CAT Voyages and Wagons 
Lits, the two leading travel 
agencies. “We are organizing 
trips for our third World Cup 
and we know we can't take 
thousands of Frenchmen on 
long, expensive trips like these.” 
said a CAT representative in 

Only in Denmark did travel 
agencies say they had do prob- 
lem selling the 1.500 sets of 
tickets they were given by the 
Organizing Committee, packing 
them in hoiel-and-travel tours 
costing an average of IS.OOQ 
Kroner or 2.200 dollars. 

Mansfield Town, who von 
promotion to Ihe third division 
last season, may have th.\r 
plans to move to a new mul :- 
million pound stadium rejected. 
The club intend to sell the:- 
Field Mill ground and move te^ 
nearby 3IJ-acre site between 
Mansfield and Sutfon-in-Ash- 
ficld. But a report, prepared by 
Nottinghamshire County Coun- 
cil enviromcmal officers, ob- 
jects to the proposals ard 
recommends turning down the 
application. Local residents also 
claim that the new stadium 
would cause traffic chaos on.

Halifax move 

Hat© profit 

Halifax Town, of the fourth 
diwsion. made a £15.355 profit 
on the jear ended March 31. 
compared with a loss of £1 5.0 (hj 
in the previous 12 months. The 
turnabout is c\plaincd mainjv 
by the club's income from ihe 
Milk Cup second round against 
touenham during the 1984/85 
season which boosted receipts to 
£« 7,fXiO compared with £52.000 
in the previous year.

Michael Stoute, the New- 
market trainer, has derided

Untold in today's Sheraton 
Park Tower Lupe States at 
Goodwood because of the 
heavy ground and the way 
now looks clear for the Luca 
Cumani-trained Traltbee to 
stake her Oaks claim with a 
convincing victory. 

Tralthec won the Roddel 
Chevington Stakes at New- 
market last Autumn in 
style.ilh the Oaks in mind, she 
will be ridden by Pat Eddery, 
who was on Land of Ivory 
when she got disqualified after 
passing the post first in the 
Princess Elizabeth Stakes at 

Stoute took the precaution 
of declaring the Cheshire Oaks 
runner-up Altiyna to ensure 
that he has a chance of 
winning the rare, but 1 prefer

enormous potentiaL 
Today's programme will be- 
gin with another of the Mail 
on Sunday series. This I 
suggest will be won by Vagoe 
Shot, who like his sire, Vaigly 
Great, should relish the soft 
ground. WeQ that Tobago 
Dancer won at Chester, I still 
doubt her being good enough 
to beat Vague Shot, who was 
backed down to 9-2 from 12-1 
before he beat Strive by a 
couple oflengths at Kempton. 

As many of those contesting 
the Raceline Handicap Stakes 
are well known to the handi- 
capper, having been compet- 
ing against one another for 
one or more seasons, 1 am 
tempted to look elsewhere for 
the likely winner and take a 
chance with Respect, a some- 
what less exposed three-year- 
old. who won very easily at 
Sandown a week ago. Judged 
on that commanding perfor- 
mance Respect deserves pre- 
cisely that, even though his 
weight includes a penalty. 

The Kincsem Handicap 
Stakes offers Accuracy a 
chance of recovering the losses 
sustained at Chester where she 
whipped around at the start of 
the Chester Cup and lost so 
many lengths that she might as

moments and lively talking 
points' on the home front. The 
splendidly fought internationals 
against New Zealand came to a 
blood-curdling climax at 
Headingley with players settling 
old and new scores in a manner 
unlikely to please sporting pur- 
ists. The finish was ideal, as Lee 
Crooks sent a penalty- kick, 
awarded for a piece of mayhem 
near the tocch line, high be- 
tween the posts to tie the game 
and the series for Great Britain. 

There were remarkable reviv- 
als in the second division by two 
clubs who have struggled for 
seasons with gates of a paltry 
few hundred, and with no play- 
ing success. Rochdale Hornets, 
under an agressive and am- 
bitions new set of directors, 
trebled their attendances and 
missed promotion only through 
an inexplicable lapse in form in 
the closing matches of the 

The most startling and most 
widely applauded renaissance 
came at Doncaster. The Dims, 
everybody's chopping Mocks 
and perennial wooden spoonists, 
suddenly emerged under the 
skilful, persuasive and experi- 
enced coaching talents of John 
Sheridan. Doncaster shook 
Leeds and the w hole of the rugby 
league world by leading 10-4 at 
Headingley and frightening 
Leeds rigid before going out of 
the Challenge Cap. They then 
shot op the second division table 
with a spate of wins, doubled 
their gates, and are looking 
forward to next season. 

Again, however, the palm for 
the greatest progress most be 
awarded to The British Amateur 
Rugby League Association. 
BA3LA continued to expand at 
university, college and upper 
schools levels, at last persuaded 
the Rugby Football Union to 
create the 'democratic free gang- 
way between the codes, and 
announced the launch of a new 
national league next season.

not dissimilar to the past few 
seasons with aierajje to good r™

One of the problems of -cnin-

Atlantic salmon in heme waters 
will be able to show a catch 
decline of 40 pci cent in 1 - 
sears. Taking another set o. 
figures you can show an increase 
in catches of 12 per cent. 

**1 think one can find a set of 
figures to show almost anything 
one wishes,” commented a lead-

"1 think there has been a decline 
of stocks in the past 20 years or

Allez Milord, one of Guy 
Harwood's three hopefuls for 
the Derby, was tackling a mile 
and a half and heavy ground 
for ihe first time tn the 
Schroder Predominate Stakes 
at Goodwood yesterday. 
Greville Starkey took the 6-5 
on favourite ahead just inside 
the last three furiongs and left 
nothing to chance, pushing the 
colt right out to the end. Allez 
Milord won by five lengths 
and three from Badarbak and 


Ladbrokes, the bookmak- 
ers. immediately cut AJIez 
Milord's Derby odds from 10- 
1 to 5-1 and make Dancing 
Brave and Shahrastani joint 
favourites at 7-2. 

Harwood, who as well as his 
2.000 Guineas winner. Danc- 
ing Brave, also has Bakharotf 
in the Derby, said: “I honestly 
can't say at die moment what 
our Derby plans or riding 
arrangements will be but I 
shall be able to announce 
them in the next few days." 

The Pu Thorough trainer said 
“ Allez Milord ran a good race 
here on ground he hated. His 
class and guts got him 
through. I did consider . 
him out because of the gro 

Racegoers saw little of the 
opening event, the Chichester 
Festival Theatre Silver Jubilee 
Handicap, after a thick mist 
restricted visibility to less than 
200 yards, but when the field 
finally came into view the 
issue was between Tabardar 
and the ueble-seelring Es- 
quire. Tabardar, with ‘Steve 
Cauthen sporting the Aga 
Khan's colours, saw it out just 
the better to win 'by. half a 
length. .■ , ‘ : ■''"•Vi 

Only |2‘ of the 13 ’swrtere 
were counted -* bdfp'e,; ’ weu 
strung out, but then sometime 
later the bottom weight, 
Bachagha, cantered by. Terry 
Ramsden's gelding, blinkered 
for the first time, had refitsed 
to race when the stalls opened. 

Visibility improved just be- 
fore the second race, the Clive 
Graham Stakes. Walter 
Swinburn, on Dihistan, made 
for the stands side of the 
course as they came to the top 
of the hilL Swinburn bad 
judged that the best ground 
would be on the stands rail 
and he was totally vindicated 
when Dihistan, " the" 11-4 
favourite, gall oped- nght away 
from ’ his six _*nvat3 D5hi Stan 

border to Penh where Teleme- 
ter Gem is napped to win the 
Gillie Bros Lochee Amateur

fore he was beaten a bead by 
the useful Celtic Fleet at 
Hereford. Roger Fisher’s five- 
year-old was a convincing 
winner over three miles at 
Southwell where be easily 
accounted for the Wolver- 
hampton winner Intrepida. 

With only three races be- 
hind him this season. Teleme- 
ter Gem should strip fresher 
than most and he should also 
be weti ridden by his trainer’s 
assistaniTony Fowler. 

Also following those 
successive victories over 2 Vi 
mites at Newcastle, Brother 
Geoffrey looks a good bet to 
win the Spittalfield Handicap

Dancing Brave, Bakbaroffand 
Allez Miloid have not worked 
together for a long time, they 
are different sorts of horses,

ailor out in the cold 
as England 
stick to their guns 

■ Dipak Tailor, one of 
•Hyland's top doubles players, 
■has been disciplined by being 
jeH out of the team announced 
‘yesterday for the Comm on - 

from July 24 to- August 2. 
Ruled out of last month's 
worid team championships in 
Jakarta: by a., hand injury. 
Tailor had been warned that it 
he did not to take a second 
opinion from the Badminton 
Association of England's doc- 
tor, then he would be omitted 
from selection for the rest of 
theyear. - - - 

■* “We wanted to see if there 
was any way we could get him 
fit,** Jake Downey, the En- 
gland manager, said. Downey 
also had to make do without 
Martin Dew, Tailor’s partner, 
after a protracted argument 
over travelling arrangements. 
Dew is also missing from the 
Commonwealth Games 
squadrimvinR decided not to 
inake himself available. . 

i Tailor, aged 22, has been 
r poo£Sbed less harshly than 

By Richard Eaton 
seemed likely. Although he 
has been denied the chance of 
three Commonwealth Games' 
medals the selectors say he 
will be considered for all 

er, meanwhile, claims be 
heard about being disciplined 
only from the Pros. 

“I bad the feeling that 
something was brewing," he 
said. “But if there is any 
suggestion that I was not unfit 
for the Thomas Cop then 1 
reject and resent that entirely. 
I provided an X-ray and a 
medical certificate from my 

doctor to the BAE and I think 
that should be sufficient 

Good news is that Nora 
Perry has been restored to the 
En gland squad. The former 
world doubles champion said 
earlier this year that she would 
never play in a team under 
Downey’s management. Bat 
.she has deckled to let bygones 
be bygones and there was 
never much doubt the selec- 
tors would choose her if die 
changed her mind. 


Who will partner Mrs Perry 
is less dear, although she will 
probably laic part in two 
events as wefl as the team 
competition. Helen Troke. 

the Commonwealth s i ng les 
title, is her likely women’s 
doubles partner, while Andy 
Goode, Nigel Tier and Rich- 
ard Outterside are all candi- 
dates to partner her in the 
mixed doubles. 

The inclusion of this trio 
plus Steve Badddey and Nick 
Yates In the men's singles 
means there is no place in the 
squad for Darren HaQ, the 
national champion. The 
Games’ format involves only 
one men’s singles and the 
selectors have gone for their 
two highest-ranked and most 
experienced singles players. 


Women: H Treks (Ha m p shi re), F 
Elliott (Surrey). G Clark (Kant). G 
Gowers (Sussex), N Parry (Essex).

Todd leads 
the big 

Gawfer (Reuter) — Mar 
Todd, of New Zealand, the 
Olympic champion, beads the 
challenge for honours by some 
of the world's top riders in 
Australia’s first international 
equestrian event starting today. 
Todd feces testing competition 
over the next four days from 
other Olympic medal winners, 
among them Virginia Holgate 
Leng. of Britain, and Karen 
Stives, of the United in 
the sixth world threodgy event 

The build-up has been 
marked by con tro versy, with the 
ground jury criticized by the 
course designer, Neil Ayer, an 
American, for changing some of 
the steeplechase jumps. Far 
from the manicured pMyh 
of Badminton and other tra- 
ditional venues, the Gawler 
event is ran over typically tougt 
terrain of the Au s tralian bush- 

But Ayer chums the jump! 
had been '‘defaced” and tfea 
their natural characteristics pe- 
culiar to the Australian land- 
scape had been removed. “The 
ground jury has seen fir to after 
them so they look like nothing. 
They now look tike European 
steeplechase jumps,” he said. “1 
think it is an insult to tire 
Australians not to toe the 
steeplechase jumps Ural are 
native to this country." 

Saturday’s crosscountry is a 
speed andendorance trial overa 
demanding 26km course, while 
the dressage and showjumping 
events are befog staged mi a 
raring course in this country 
town which ties 30km north of 
A de laide. 

Todd, astride bis tiny horse 
Charisma, beads die lot of 
individual riders expected to 
excel. Mrs Leng, a bronze medal 
winner at the Los Angeles 
Games, riding Priceless, the 
1986 Badminton winner and 
compatriot Ian Stark, on Oxford 
Blue, and Olympic silver medal- 
list Stives, on Flying Odours, 
will be tough to beat. 

The United Stales suffered a 
major setback when Bruce 
Davidson was dominated before 
be could even take the saddle. 
His mount. Doctor Peaches, 
foiled the first official examina- 
tion by the international panel 

ruled the horse lame. Davidson 
is the only rider to have won two 
consecutive world champion-' 
ships— at Burghley in 1974, and 
at L exi n gton, Kentucky, in 

The American, seeking his 
third individual fold tt^am 
championship win, narrowly 
missed out on the 1982 tide 
which went to Lucinda Green.

The org aniz ers of the Great 
North Run, which i nco r porates 
the AAA half marathon 

ehaimpinnaitlip , wi fia t w h MH q p 
June &, yesterday announced the 
participation of Carlos Lopes. 

But Jos Hermans, the Dutch- 
man who acts as agent for 
Lopes, said that the likelihood 
was that the Olympic marathon 
champion would not ran in the 
race against Steve Jones, the 
Welshman, whose marathon 
time is only one second slower 
than Lopes's world best of 2hr 
7mfo 12 kg. 

Lopes was due to race m 
Oxford 10 days ago in the IAC 
8km event, bat be w ithdrew az 
the last moment, the organizers 
threatening to invoke legal ac- 
tion against athletes who renege 
on contractual obligations with- 
out fair excuse or wanting. 

But Hermans, who still balds’ 
the world track re cords for 

“Carlos wantedto cotnTto^tbe 
IAC event, but be has the same 
problems with a calf inti tendon 
injury that be has badsfocelasi; 
year. He’s definitely coming to 

the Great North Run and will do 
the running clinic the night 
before the race, but he’s not 100 
percent sure at the moment that

percent sure at th

of luck 

Qufa y Pan too, who scored _ a 
record twelfth tour victory in 
Portugal on Sunday, bad to 
withdraw from the £20,000 
British Olivetti tournament 
which began yesterday in wet 
mid windy conditions at Moor 
Hall, near Sutton Goldfield. 

Miss Pantoo, who sustained a 
slipped disc six weeks ago. took 
medical advice after a steeptess 
night- “I was told my back had 
been affected by the beat last 
week,” Miss Pan ton, winner of 
the Portuguese Open chamokm- 

“He’s agreed to turn up for 
races in the past and hasn't 
made it- This time he has said, 
‘Let’s say I don’t make it then 
perhaps this time ( wifi.’ The 
reason he's a little bit scared is 
that be really wants to go for the 
10,000 metres m Stuttgart, (at 
the European championships in 
late August) and doesn’t want 
anything to get in the way.**. 

ThcGreat North Run is bong 
set up as an attempt to ran the 
half marathon in under the 
hour. The best is 60min 55sec by 
the American, Mark Carp, who 
also withdrew recently mm an 
IAC race, ostensibly through 
fear of t e rrorism in Europe. 

Ocher .top-das* pnrn ” to 
confront Jones, who has also 
had tendon- injuries Tir tire past 
few weeks, are Hugh -Jones, 
second fo the London Marathon 
■ last month, and the Scottish 
Commonwealth ' Games mara,- 
thon mmieis, John Grahgni mid 
Fraser Qyne. 


on form 

The New. Zeriand Cavafiers 
outclassed . a South African 
Barbarians XV 42-13 an Tues- 
day. The Cavaliers led ! 
halftime and added a further 24 
points in a one-sided second 


Two tries apiece by the wing* 
Beraie Frazer, and No. 8, 
Wayne Stafford, helped seal the 
fete of opponents willing to ran 
the ball out lacking fo defence 
and forward fire. 

Further tries by the forwards, 
Frank SfceHbrd and Murray 
Pierce, and six conv e r si ons and 
two penalties by Robbie Deans i 
left the vistors fo complete 
command. But one of the 
brightest moments was pro- 
vided by the home full bade, 
Hugh Reece-Edwards, who 
touched down at the end of a 
rare surge into- the rebels’ half .

broken limbs 

From Sftiart Jones, Football Correspondent, Colorado Springs 

Bobby Robson, England’s 
manag er, unwittingly pulled 
the -carpet from underneath 
the supporters of artificial turf 
yesterday, ' three -Say* before' 
the Subject is to be discussed at 
the Football League’s annual 
meeting. Canada, Errand's 
nents on Saturday in 

/an mover, had expected to 
stage the fodure on a synthetic 
surface but Robson has reject- 
ed the idea for fear of injury. 

The hosts offered to hold it 
inside the BC Place, a large 
astrodome that houses a ca- 
pacity of some 60.000 specta- 
tors and where a weakened 
Wales side beat the Ca n ad i ans 
3-0 on Monday. Robson 
would have been delighted to 
accept the invitation but for 
that one problem. 

“I once worked in Vancou- 
ver and it would have been 
nice u> play in front of a trig 
crowd and to earn some 
money for the Canadians," he 
said, “bat I cannot afford to 
take the risk. At this stage it is 
just not worth it because 
somebody could get hurl. 

“On that sort of surface, a 
player can twist an ankle or jar 
a knee. It can happen on grass 
as well but I don't want to 
increase the danger. I'm giving 
the squad the day off tomor- 
row anyway to get rid of all 

their minor aches and pains. I' 
don't want the problems to 
recur.” . . 

- - - Robson has insisted, there- 
. fore, that the game ir played 
instead at Swangard, a stadi- 
um that accommodates an 
audiehce of only r5,-QGf£ It is 
sure to be foil The Canadians, 

More football Page 36 

The consolation is that, 
unlike the Welsh who were 
weakened by the absence of 
Rush and Hughes among oth- 
ers, Ehgarid are likely to be at 
their strongest It is scheduled 
to be the last competitive 
practice match before the 
opening time against Portugal 
on June 3 and Robson would 
prefer to select his starting 

disappointed that only 9,000 
turned up to watch the defeat 
by Wales in the larger arena, 
say they could have sold out 
the BC Place. 

The change of venue repre- 
sents an estimated loss of up 
to$l million (about £660,000) 
for the Canadians, who are 
struggling to meet the costs of 
preparing for and entering the 
World Cup finals for the first 
time. A grant of $200,000, 
donated belatedly by the gov- 
ernment, scarcely covers their 

Tony Waiters, the English- 
.man in charge, admitted; “It is 
a blow, a very big blow. I can 
understand Bobby Robson's 
reasons and so does every- 
body here but the decision has 
broken a lot of hearts. We 
want to and need to play 
against England so we will 
meet them on their terms." 

England's manager is still 
attempting to arrange another 
fixture next week against 
Monterrey, the champions of 
Mexico, either in the city itself 
or over the American bonier 
in Texas. Tampico, the run- 
ners-up in the domestic cham- 
pionship, have offered to act 
as hosts if their rivals, who 
have been approached also by 
the Portugese and Poland, are 
unable to meet England. 

The outing would give an 
opportunity for those left out 
against Canada to run around 
for 90 minutes but Bailey is 
still not yet sure whether he 
will take an active part in the 
build-up. Although Hodge is 
almost certain to pass his 
fitness test and be included in 
the official squad, Manchester 
United's goalkeeper feces the 
other of Robson’s decisions 
this afternoon. 

Ferguson’s men fit the bill 

■ Alex Ferguson,the Scotland 
manager, gave his squad a 
dean biD of health yesterday 
after their first foil' week of 
altitude training at Santa Fe in. 
preparation for the World Cup 
in Mexico.- — 

Ferguson could not disguise 
his delight at the way the 22- 

man squad has adapted to the 
conditions, especially with the 
opening match against Den- 
mark drawing closer. “I have 
to admit, they have, really 
surprised me," Ferguson said. 
“I knew before I left that I- 
would be working with a great 
squad but I didn't appreciate 

McClelland tips Scots 

John McClelland, the stur- 
dy Northern Ireland defender, 
tuts predicted a bright future 
for Scotland in the World 
Clip's most cutthroat group. 
The former captain of Glas- 
gow Ranger&r McClelland, had. 
the chance to team at - dose 
q Barters about the unpredict- 
able Scottish nature. 

And yesterday the taD Irish- 
man, preparing for his own 

country's Mexican campaign 
60-miles from Scotland's 
training camp in Santa Fe, 
said; “That group (including 
West Germany, Denmark and 
Uruguay) is so tough it should 
suit Scotland down, to the 

jriasgoir. fe understand the 
Scottish mentality and they 
are always at diefr best m 

just how good. 

“These players have a real 
hunger to do their best for 
Scotland and that attitude has 
really impressed me. They 
genuinely want to work hard 
and prove they are worth their 
place in the World Gip. There 
is a tremendous camaraderie 
about them and the last seven 
days has made me realize 
there is absolutely nothing to 
stop this squad having a real 
go and doing well in Mexico/ 

Ferguson rewarded his 
squad with the day off yester- 
day to help them recover from 
punishing work in tempera- 
tures surpassing 80 degrees. 

Steve NicoL, another -of the 
squad to be affected by a groin 
strain, failed to take part in 
Scotland's first full-scale prac- 
tice match on Tuesday night.

sions that Pyrah had won this 
class he had partnered Mi- 
chael : Whitaker on Next 
Courtway but yesterday be 
teamed up with Miss Brown, 
who was specially invited to 
compete at this show. The 
only girl out of the SO interna- 
tional riders here, Miss Brown 
has been riding consistently 
well throughout the six-day 
meeting. Together wife her 

winnings from the Rome and 
Lucerne shows earlier this 
month she has won more than 
£5,000 during her four weeks' 
travels on the continent 

Yesterday she was worried 
that her speed horse. 
Springlight, might be feeling 
the effects of having had two 
teeth out on the previous day 
but her. fears proved ground- 
less. Encouraged by Pyrah’s 
relaxed approach to fee com- 
petition, Miss Brown rose 
magnificently to the occasion. 

Following fee exact route 
which Pyrah had worked out 
with her, fee pair came home 
dear recording a time more 
than five seconds ahead of the 
runners-up, Cahano Martinez 
de Irujo and Alberto 
Honrubia, of Spain. The Mo- 
roccans bad a measure of 
consolation- for their ninth 
place in fee Nations Cup on 
Monday when Senors Badrir 
and Cherkaoui took third 
place riding Essaada Maniola 
and Special Flight - 
Whitaker fared less well. 
Having lost his regular partner 
to Miss Brown, he teamed tip 
wife David Bowen bn Hawk. 
Whitaker was without his top

Jumping Derby later in fee

Derby was not going to be a

Courtway better than Aman-

fence down in fee Relay and 
with Hawk hitting the last 
fence fee pair finished way 
down the tine. 

Wh tinker's older brother, 
John, was no more fortunate 
on Next Saint Mungo. He and 
Nick Skelton, on Raffles Air-

tian which fell apart at fee

Checks for 

boxers in 

title bouts 

The British Boxing Board of 
Control yesterday restated fee 
medical conditions under 
which professional boxing li- 
cences will be issued and 
announced the start of a 
scheme they hope wifi lead to 
brain scans for all boxers. 

At fee first annual meeting 
of fee board following fee 
death of the Scottish welter- 
weight Steve Wan, Dr Oswald 
Ross, fee deputy chief medical 
officer, said; “We shall order 
brain scans for all boxers 
taking part in championships 
down to area championship 

“This is only the start and 
we hope to build up from it 
and cover the whole sport in 
time. In any case, the board 
currently has the right to order 
a scan on any boxer it is 
concerned about” 

The new provisions for fee 
medical examination of box- 
ers covers a long range of 
items, everything from eye- 
sight to AIDS. Alcohol and 
drug abuse are also on the list 
for fee first time, althoug

One stroke avoids 

a gale of wrath 

By John Hennessy 

She stood over a two-foot 
putt on the 18th at Prince's, 
this young woman from Sus- 
sex, with a prayer in her bean. 

There was no title hanging on 
this final blow, nothing more 
indeed than self-esteem and a 
desire to evade parental wrath. 

The putt went in, and Karen 
Mitchell sighed wife relief 
knowing that she could tele- 
phone her father wife the news 
that she had at least avoided 
three figures by this slender 
margin in fee second round of 
the English women’s champi- 
onship, sponsored by 
Fowakaddy. Somehow 99 
seemed so much more respect- 
able than 100. 

Miss Mitchell, aged 17, 
sprang to notice with some 
arresting performances in the 
girls' championship three 
years ago. Her golf however, 
has been based so for on a 
brilliant short game, which 
alone, she realized, would not 
suffice as an adulL She is in 
the throes, therefore, of re- 
modelling her swing under 
Vivien Saunders to give more 
length, hardly the time to face 
the fierce conditions obtaining 
yesterday, when a wind offi- 
cially recorded as “full gale 
force" gusted up to 45mph at 
Mansion aerodrome nearby 
and transformed fee sleeping 

lamb of Tuesday into fee 
raging lion of Wednesday. 

Not only was Miss 
Mitchell’s tong game under 
the whip, but the greens, too, 
offered no relief even to a 
player of her renowned touch- 
Bridget Jackson, a familiar 
figure in English golf for many 
years, could not remember 
such appalling conditions. 
News-gathering seemed an in- 
trusion into private grief as 
player after player trudged 
wearily into fee clubhouse in 

search of consolation. 

The par of 74 for -the 
combined Shore/Himalayas 
course was a mirage in such 
conditions, and no player got 
below 80. Julia HiU, fee 
Cheshire champion, achieved 
that score, one shot fewer than 
Patricia Johnson, fee holder, 
who did indeed suffer one 
attack of four putts. Miss 
Johnson, wife a total of 155, 
shared fee lead wife Tracey 
Hammond (82 yesterday).
