The Government will intro- 
duce an amendment to the 
Education -Bill in the Lords 
next week that will guarantee 
freedom of speech at universi- 
ties and other colleges of 
further education. 

If accepted it is likely to lead’ 
to the police being asked to 
patrol campuses to slop any 
disruption at organized 

The move comes after 
growing concern about the 
violent scenes at several uni- 
versities when students and 
others have tried to silence 
speakers considered to be 
racist or fascist 

Mrs Maigarct Thatcher is 
known to feel strongly that 
invited speakers at places of 
learning must not be denied 
the right to speak. She was 
particularly impressed by a 
debate in the Lords in Febru- 
ary on “campus censorship" 
and the politicization of 

Sir Keith Joseph, in one of 
his last moves before being 
replaced last week as Secretary 
of State for Education and 
Science, appealed to the Na- 
tional Union of Students not 
to disrupt meetings, branding 
the protesting students “the 
new barbarians’*. 

Among the speakers who 
have been the targets of abuse 
are Mr David Waddington, 
the Home Office minister in 
charge of immigration, at 
Manchester University; Mr 
John Carlisle. Conservative 
MP for Luton North, at 
Bradford University; and Pro- 
fessor John Vincent, a colum-

disrupt speeches of those con- 
sidered to be racist or fascist 
was “wrong, misguided and 

The Government’s amend- 
ment also follows a campaign 
by Baroness Cox.-a Conserva- 
tive peer, to take politics out 
of schools and colleges. Last 
week she succeeded in pushing 
through an amendment to the 
Education Bill to ban political 
indoctrination in primary

amendment, to prevent seri-

dom of speech in colleges,

Keith’s appeal to the students, 
would secure freedom of 
speech in institutions of fur- 
ther education. 

Baroness Cox described the 
penalties imposed on students 
at Bristol University who 
disrupted Professor Vincent's 
lectures as very mild and 
criticised two Oxford colleges 
that would not give a platform 
to a Conservative MP. Legis- 
lation, she said, would 
strengthen the hand of the 
university authorities. 

A National Union of 
Students* spokesman said yes- 
terday that there were already 
dear disriplinary procedures 
for dealing with the breaking 
of regulations and oven dis- 
ruptions of meetings. 

“You have in some colleges 
a minority of political extrem- 
ists who have no respect for 
the wishes of the majority on 
the union and the college 
authorities and ultimately 
have little respect for the law,” 
the spokesman said. 

“By tying the hands of the 
college authorities by external 
powers would make very little 
difference because these peo- 
ple will always seek to draw 
attention to themselves and to 
make martyrs of themselves in 
order to attract publicity.” 

The aim of the Education 
Bill, introduced in the Lords, 
is to give parents more say in 
the running of schools. But it 
is rapidly becoming a very 
different and more controver- 
sial measure and faces a 
stormy passage 

The Lords spent twice as 
long as planned in amending 
iL adding a clause to ban 
caning as- well as one outlaw- 
ing partisan political activites 
in schools. ’ 


9,500 students cut 

By Lacy Hodges, Education Correspondent 

The Government's advisers 
on polytechnic funding are to 
ask for a meeting with Mr 
Kenneth Baker, the new Secre* 
iaiy of State for Education and 
Science, to prevent a proposed 
cut of 9,500 in student num- 
bers next year. 

The committee of the Na- 
tional Advisory Body is angry 
that Sir Keith Joseph, the 
former Education Secretary, 
managed to get Cabinet agree- 
ment in principle to extra cash 
for the universities in 1987-88, 
but appears to have secured 
nothing extra for the polys. 

Polytechnic directors are 
particularly angry that the 
Government has not respond- 
ed to their emphasis on the 
foci that it is cheaper to 
educate a student at a poly- 
technic than a university. 

Last month NAB officials 
sent out details of cuts lo all 
polys, based on a budget 
shortfall of £23 million for 
1987-88. They said there 
would have to be a cut of 
7 per cent, or 9,500; in stu- 
dent numbers in order to save 
3 percent in the budget. 

In saying this, NAB officials 
were working under instruc- 
tions from their committee to 
cut student numbers to main- 
tain standards. Until now the 
NAB has allowed more and 
more students lo study for a 
public sector degree, without 
extra funding ’ from the 
Government • 

Consultations are under 
way on the details of these, 
cuts, which involve the do- 
sure of whole departments, 
including engineering and fine 
art- A second round of consul- 
tation is due in September. 

Mr John Bevan. NAB secre- 
tary. said; “It would be sensi- 
ble for that second round of 
consultation to take account 
of any signal the Secretary of 
State is going to give us about 
extra money. To do that we 
need to bave a signal by about 
the middle of June.

Body gives its advice on next 
year's polytechnic funding to 
Mr Baker at the end of the

From Michael Haulyn 


If there was ever a conven- 
tion that Opposition politi- 
cians travelling abroad should 
refrain from attacks on the 
Government at home, it has 
been relegated to tbe dustbin 
by Mr Neil Kinnock, tbe 
Labour Party leader, during 

IDS tOUr Of Tnriia 
Ala meeting of intellectuals 
and international affairs ex- 
perts, be took the opportunity 
yesterday to lam bast Mrs 
Thatcher's **de- 

internationatization” of Brit 
isb policy. 

Speaking at tbe Indian in- 
ternational Centre, he de- 
scribed what he saw as Mrs 
Thatcherfs “inward-looking 
abandonment of the id eats of 
international organizations 
and a cynicism towards what 
international structures can 

He cited as instances of this 
“systematic process”: the 

British withdrawal from Unes- 
co after the American with- 
drawal; tbe dismissal of tbe 
United Nations as a talking- 
shop; the abandonment, after 
40 years, of the International 
Labour Organization conven- 
tions and tbe obstruction of 
Commonwealth initiatives; the 
attempt to call for joint world 
reflation at the Common- 
wealth summit in Delhi; and 
the imposition of sanctions 
against Sooth Africa at the 
Nassau summit 
Mr Kinnock said tocaUMrs 
Thatcher a camp-follower was 
one of the more polite ways of 
describing her relationship 
with Mr Reagan. He said 
there had been no trade-off for 
Britain in following a deferen- 
tial policy towards America. 
“We have suffered nothing but 
economic disadvantage . 

Mrs Thatcher's policy was 
sentimental, based on tbe 
“impression made by Ronald 
Reagan in cowboy films in 
Mrs Thatcher’s youth”, Mr 
Kinnock said. Hk audience 
was pleased to bear him sup- 
port comprehensive sanctions 
against South Africa, . “eco- 
nomic. commercial and 
caltmal”, but they were disap- 
pointed if they expected him to 
take a harder line on Sikh 
extremists in Britain thaH the 
Thatcher Government. 

Mr Kinnock said that to ag- 
ree to a change in British ex- 
tradition or deportation 
arrangements he “would have 
to hear something more per- 
suasive than what appears to 
be the present arguments”. 

He promised to replace the 
Nationality and Immigration 
Acts of 1971 with non-racial 
and non-discriminatory legis-

Seven Britons still 
held in Zimbabwe 

By Nicholas Ashford. Diplomatic Correspondent 
Two Britons were released over the identities of those 

were still being held for ques- 
tioning by police in Zimbabwe 
in connection with last week's 
South African raids on 

According lo reliable 
sources in Harare, those being 
held are suspected of having 
rented cars and of providing 
accommodation and logistical 
support to the South Africans. 

All the Britons are under- 
stood to be held in Bulawayo, 
in Matabeleland. British High 
Commission staff have been 
in touch with the Zimbabwe 
authorities about the arrests 
but so far none of those being 
held has been visited by 
British diplomats. 

There was some confusion 

being held and whether they 
held British or Zimbabwean 
nationality or both. ■ 

The two released yesterday 
were named as Mr Alun 
Pariill and Mr Roy Lewis, 
both employed as engineers at 
the Hwange power station in 
northern Zimbabwe. 

Six of the others have been 
named as Mr Brian 
Wiikerson. Mr Steven Harri- 
son. Mr Derrick Straw. Mr 
Callum Anderson. Mr Rich- 
ard Woodcraft and Mrs Lau- 
rel Zumamer. 

Mr Wilkinson and Mr Har- 
rison were arrested on May 23.

Reagan warning on future of Salt 

From Michael Btnyon 

President Reagan has decid- 
ed to scrap two ageing Posei- 
don submarines, but has 
warned Moscow that he will 
no longer abide by the limit of 
the Salt 2 treaty iflbe Russians 
continue to violate it 
A White House announce- 
ment yesterday said the Unit- 
ed States could not continue 
unilaterally to support a 
flawed Salt structure that So- 
viet non-compliance had “so 

grievously undermined” and 
Moscow appeared unwilling 
to repair. 

The submarines had to be 
retired because of the sea trials 
beginning today of USS Neva- 
da, a Trident submarine with 
24 multiple warhead missiles. 
This would have pushed the 
LIS over the Salt 2 limit of 
1.200 launcher if the two 
Poseidons had remained. 

• The White House noted 
that the.US would remain “in 
technical observance” of the 

Treaty for some months. This 
would give Moscow more 
time to correct violations . 

Mr Reagan proposed the 
building of a new aims limita- 
tion structure based on “sig- 
nificant equitable and veri- 
fiable” reductions in existing 
US and Soviet nuclear 

The President’s carefully 
worded statement increases 
the pressure on the Russians 
while leaving the door open to 
continued US compliance. 

Lost Victorian art treasure revealed 

By Michael McCarthy 

A painting that lay rolled up 
in a cardboard tube for more 
than 50 years has been fosnd 
to be the work of one of tbe 
most prized Victorian artists, 
with an estimated value of 
more than £100,000. 

The watercolour,. “Artists* 
Haft in the Desert” by Rich- 
ard Dadd (1817-1886) was re- 
discovered when the BBC's 
Antiques Roadshow television 
programme visited Barnstaple 
hi Devon two weeks ago. A 
local couple, Mr Bob Walker 
and his wife Panline, brought 
it along to be valued. 

The painting, aa atmospher- 
ic recreation of a moonlit 
campfire on the shores of the 
Dead Sea, had belonged to Mr 
Walker's maternal grandfa- 
ther since the early years of 
this century and was kept in a 
cardboard tube in the family 
home in Chorion com Hardy, 

“ We used to take it ont 
when visitors came, and show 
it to them and then pnt it 
back,” Mr Walker said

His output was not huge -

232 works - hot they are 
incr easing l y prized. One of his 
rare oBs has sold for £550,000. 

The newly-discovered 
the~painting. said yesterday watercolour depicts a scene 
that the years in the tube had from a long tour of Europe and 

contributed to its “wonderful 
condition. “Dadd's colours 
were very strong and almost 
all his' - watercolours ■ from this 
period are now terribly faded. 
Here we see the fell strength 
of the artist’s original colour 
and it’s . absolutely 
marvellous.” .

patron. Sir Thomas Phillips. 
It shows the party. Europeans 
in top bats and Arab guides in 
turbans, around a blaring 
campfire under a moonlit and 
starry sky. It was probably 
painted after Dadd's return in 
1843 and was last recorded at 

1857. . 

People with paintings in 
attics might be interested to 
know tlmt two companion 
watercolours from tbe same 
tour, “View of Rocks" and 
“Dead CameT, also last seen 
at tbe same Manchester exhi- 
bition, are missing. 

Hugh Scully, presenter of 
Antiques Roadshow, said the 
painting was the most valuable 
object the programme had 
brought to tight in hs nine 
seasons. “We are used to 
finding valuable things, but 
usually people with works of 
art of this sort of level know all 
about them. Mr and Mrs 
Walker knew nothing about it 

whatsoever. ” 

The Walkers queued for 
three hours with the unsigned 
painting to get into the An- 

tiques Roadshow recording 
session at tbe North Devon 
Leisure Centre in Barnstaple. 
Mr Nahnm said be was “90 
per emit certain” of die identi- 
fication as soon as be saw it, 
but it was confirmed by tbe 
world expert on Dadd, Patricia 

Tbe actual discovery and 
the Walkers' reaction will be 
shown in the first programme 
of the new series in January. 

Mr Nahnm's estimate of tbe 
painting's value is “in excess 
of £100.000,” and Mr Walker, 
aged 56, a former RAF ser- 
geant who is a civilian police 
driver, and his wife, aged 55, 
have decided to sell it at 

Mr Walker said : “It be- 
longed to my mother’s father 
and then was passed on to my 
mother. It was onr work of art. 
About six years ago I took it 
out of its tube for good and got 
it framed and when we moved 
to onr bungalow in Barnstaple 
two years ago my mother gave 
it to us. We had it on tbe walk 
over a heater, actually.” 

He added that his mother. 
Mrs Florence Phillips, aged 
76. would be given a -third 
share in the proceeds. 

“We ourselves will probably 
have a nice holiday. What 
we*d like to do most of all is fly 
on Concorde.” 

Would they miss their Work 
of Art ? "Not really,” Mr 
Walker said. “If*s very dark.

thing, as paintings go.

The Chinese Government 
may gain control of the Fur- 
ness Withy Group, one of the 
best-known names in British 
shipping, in tense negotiations 
taking place in Hong Kong. 

Until recently Furness 
Wiihy was one of the top five 
British shipping groups with a 
fleet of more than 100 ships, 
including passenger liners 
such as the 20.000-ton South- 
ern Cross, launched by the 
Queen in 1954, and the 25.000- 
ton Northern Star, launched 
by Queen Elizabeth the Queen 
Mother in 1961. 

Bui the group ran imo 
financial troubles and in 1980 
became pan of Hong Kong's 
giant Tung group in a 
£112 million takeover. Now 
the Tung group is also in 
irouble. with an estimated 
$2,600 million shortfall that 
has led to a restructuring by 
London. Hong Kong and Jap- 
anese banks. 

Under the proposals. Fur- 
ness Withy will become pan 
of a new container shipping 
group u’itlrrn the resiruoured 
Tung empire, retaining its 
British management. 

Acting through Mr Henry 
Fok. a wealthy shipping and 
gambling entrepreneur, the 
Chinese Government has of- 
fered to lake a £100 million 
stake in the Tung group.

From Ian Murray 


A confederation between 
Jordan and the territories now 
occupied by Israel remains the 
best hope for settling the 
tangled Palestinian problem. 
Mrs Thatcher said here yes- 
terday at tbe end of the first 
visit by a British Prime Minis- 
ter to Israel. 

At a news conference sum- 
ming np her three days of 
wide-ranging talks with the 
Israeli leadership and a dele- 
gation of moderate Palestin- 
ians, she insisted that such a 
confederation “is the most 
likely one to achieve success 
and welcome among the states 
concerned and among the wid- 
er world. 

“Von try always when yon 
are working on these matters 
to go for the solution which 
will achieve widest acceptance 
because there is not much 
point in working for anything 
that will raise other difficulties 
and other problems.” 

In her view Israel was 
prepared to negotiate such an 
arrangement. “All have recog- 
nized that it is not in their best 
interest to be an occupying 
power,” she said. 

But she frankly admitted 
that it had so far been impossi- 
ble to find moderate Palestin- 
ian leaders who traly 
represented the people and 
would be capable of negotiat- 
ing such a deaf. 

She left the door open for 
the Palestine Liberation Orga- 
nization (PLO) to be involved 
in any discussions, but she 
made it abundantly clear that 
this conld only happen if the 
organization renounced the 
use of terrorism everywhere. 

One way of finding a moder- 
ate leadership she said, was to 
allow tbe Palestinians the 
right to elect their own may- 
ors, but there were other 
“indirect ways” such as allow- 
ing tbe people to elect repre- 
sentatives from the West Bank 
to the Jordanian Parliament 

Sirs Thatcher seemed un- 
dismayed by the fact that her 
suggestion bad been dismissed 
out of hand by Mr Yitzhak 
Rabin, the Defence Minister. 

Mrs Thatcher arrived back 
in London last night

Bar told 

By Frances Gibb 
Legal Affairs Correspondent 

The Lord Chancellor. Lord 
Hailsham of Si Marylebone. 
warned yesterday that the idea 
of a Ministry of Justice was 
“constitutionally very 

“It is my conviction that a 
minister of justice based on 
the House of Commons would 
be a menace to the indepen- 
dence of the courts and the 
judiciary, perhaps even of the 
legal profession.” 

The idea, which was recent- 
ly put forward in a policy 
paper from the SDP-Liberaf 
Alliance, was incompatible 
with separate responsibilities 
as under the present system 
for judicial appointments and 
court administration on the 
one hand, and for prosecu- 
tions and penal treatment on 
the other, he said. 

Lord Hailsham. who was 
giving the opening address to 
almost 300 barristers attend- 
ing the Bar’s first conference 
in London, also made a 
vigorous defence of the legal 
profession with its two-branch 

’ Each branch had its own 
role and this was nothing to do 
with “restrictive practices or 
the suppression of 
competition”, he said. It was 
vital this was understood by 
the public, the profession and 
all engaged in debate. 

Lord Hailsham avoided ref- 
erence to the delicate issue of 
legal aid fees on which he was 
recently taken to court by the 
Bar. and his presence at the 
conference, warmly welcomed 
by Mr Robert Alexander. QC. 
the Bar chairman, was a dear 
public healing of any rift that 
the legal proceedings may 
have caused. 

Lord Hailsham. Mr Alexan- 
der said, was a “statesman, 
scholar and a judge” who has a 
“great affection and concern 
for our profession.” 

Bui the day was not entirely 
free from controversy. In what 
some took to be a side swipe at 
Judge Pickles, the circuit judge 
who has spoken publiclv in 
defiance of the rules. Lord 
Hailsham said that anyone 
who thought he was a dictator 
in the matter of judicial 
appointments — words used 
by the judge — was “a fool”.

Chernobyl aid concert

Assembly in 
doubt after 
Unionist snub 
to minister 

By Richard Ford 

The leaders of the two 
Ulster Unionist parties last 
night rejected an invitation to 
meet Mr Tom King, Secretary 
of State for Northern Ireland, 
for discussions on the assem- 
bly whose future is to be 
decided within 10 days. 

Mr Janies Molyneaux. lead- 
er of the Official Unionists, 
and the Rev Ian Paisley, of the 
Democratic Unionists, said in 
a joint statement that they 
could not enter talks with the 
Government until the Anglo- 
Irish agreement was 

The Government is consid- 
ering dissolving the assembly, 
set up four years ago at a cost 
of £2.3 million a year, as it 
sees little point in going ahead 
with new elections when 
hopes for agreement on some 
form of devolution remain as 
slim as ever. 

Although the Government 
could reconstitute the assem- 
bly through an Order in 

Council at Westminster if 
agreement on devolved gov- 
ernment was reached, sources 
suggest that given the present 
attitudes in the province there 
would be little enthusiasm for 
reviving a local body. 

Mr King must make a 
decision within 10 days to 
allow necessary drafting of an 
Order in Council to dissolve 
the assembly and allow time 
for a debate in the Commons 
before the summer recess. 

Although it has not been 
carrying out its statutory func- 
tions since the signing of the 
Angl-Irish agreement, the 
Government has become in- 
creasingly angered that no 
Unionist has so far publicly 
announced that he would stop 
drawing his entitlement to 
£17,000 in salary and ex-

Priest denounces 
‘cruel’ IRA killing 

Three hundred mourners 
yesterday heard the Provision- 
al IRA murder of an alleged 
informer described as “cruel, 
unjust and brutal” (Richard 
Ford writes). 

Father Michael Canny said 
at the funeral in St Eugene’s 
Cathedral, Londonderry, that 
although the Provisional IRA 
had offered some kind of 
excuse, there was no justifica- 
tion for the murder of Mr 
Frank Hegarty. His body was 
discovered on a border road in 
Co Tyrone at the weekend 
after the terrorists had ques- 
tioned him about leaks of 
information to the security 
forces. He was then shot once 
in the head. 

Mr Hegarty, aged 45, a 
republican activist, had re- 
turned to Londonderry recent- 
ly after spending several 
months in a “safe” house in 

Shtingbomne, Kent He had 
been flows out of the province 
oulv boors after the garda 
found 120 rifles and 18,000 
rounds of ammunition in three 
arms damps in comities Ros- 
common and Sligo in January. 

It is understood that Mr 
Hegarty returned because be 
was homesick and missed his 
elderly mother and believed be 
could convince the terrorists 
that he had not been involved 
in informing. 

After the funeral, the print 
was cri tic ize d by Mr Martin 
McGuinness, a Provisional 
Sinn Fein Assembly member, 
who said that priests and 
politicians who refused to 
acknowledge the reality of the 
consequences of Britain's oc- 
cupation of the island were 
apologists for the British 


threat to 

party ban 

The Labour Party last night 
faced a new constitutional 
crisis in the Militant strong- 
hold of Liverpool 

Mr Tony Mulhearn. a coun- 
cillor expelled from ihe party 
after being officially branded a 
Militant Tendency member 
by the national executive last 
week, planned to attend the 
annual meeting of Garston 
constituency party last night. 

The constituency has voted 
to reject any expulsions im- 
posed by the executive, and it 
was understood that Mr 
Mulhearn would be allowed to 
attend the meeting. 

Mr Mulhearn said 

yesterday; “The constituency 
has already taken several deci- 
sions that they will not recog- 
nize the expulsion, and 1 have 
no reason to suppose that will 

“The party membership 
have expressed total opposi- 
tion to what the right-wing 
dominated National Execu- 
tive Committee has done.” He 
said he was attending as a 
delegate from the National 
Graphical Association. 

A full-time regional officer 
of the Labour Party was to 
attend the meeting and would 
report any breach of party 
rules to the national executive. 

It is believed the executive 
would then refuse to recognize 
the constituency party and 
would send its own officers to 
set up a new one. 

The NEC has already dis- 
banded the Liverpool District 
Labour Party, of which Mr 
Mulhearn was president. But 
its reorganization plans suf- 
fered a setback when Mr 
Mulhearn was elected presi- 
dent of the temporary co- 
ordinating committee set up 
to replace iL

the Irish Republic at the 
invitation of supporters of the

Three held over art theft 

Three men were being ques- 
tioned last night in the Irish 
Republic by police investigat- 
ing last week's multi-million 
pound theft from the Beit art 

They were being held at 
Mallow police station. Co 
Cork, under the Irish anti- 
tenorist law. which allows 
people to be held for up to 40 

hours before being charged or 

Two were arrested on Mon- 
day with the wife of one of 
them, who was later allowed 
to leave. They were picked up 
after police found a dugout in 
a field that was big enough to 
store paintings or other stolen 

The third suspect was de- 
tained yesterday. 

Police said there was noth- 
ing to link the dugout directly 
with the theft of 11 Old 
Masters from Russboiougb 
House, the home of Sir Alfred

Sport Aid ‘squeeze’ begins 

Sport Aid organizers were 
yesterday endeavouring to 
maximize the money raised by 
Sunday's worldwide Race 
Against Tone in aid of African 
famine relief. They are opti- 
mistic that the total will 
eventually far exceed the pro- 
ceeds of Bob Gektofs original 
Band Aid scheme. 

“This has to he the day of 
the big squeeze;” Mr Nick 
Cater, the organization's 
spokesman, said, while help- 
ing volunteers to answer inces- 
santly ringing telephones at 
the Sport Aid headquarters. 

“We are telling everyone 
who ran that they should 
waste no time in collecting all 
the money pledged by their 
sponsors, and we want them to 
ask for more than was 
pledged. If people offered £10 
they should be urged to pay 
£25,” he said. 

“The runners too should 
look at their own contribu- 
tions. Some were running in 
kits costing £200, and just a 
pair of running shoes costs 
£25. We think it is reasonable 

to hope that they would not 
give less than the cost of a pair 
of shoes.” 

Credit card contributions by

response. “My target when we 
started was to have one million 
people running. We did some- 
thing like that in Britain alone 
when you consider all the 
small local races that mush- 
roomed up everywhere. We 
have already raised £5 million 
before the sponsorship money 
comes in.” 

Mr Long, who organized 
global satellite television cov- 
erage of tbe.eveot, was nursing 
blistered feet after taking part 
in the New York run. Mr

GEC says 

By Rodney Cowton 

Defence Correspondent 

GEC claimed yesterday to 
have made substantia! 
progress towards sdv?ng jjj 
problems with the Nimrod 
Airborne Early Warning 

Mr James Pnor. a former 
member of Mrs Magaret; ► 
Thatchers Cabinet, and chair-' < 
man of' GEC. veiled the 
establishment where the work 
is being earned oat and 
afterwaitls said that an aircraft 
was already flying with a new 
high-speed computer and im- 
proved aerials. 

The project has" so tor cost 
about £900 million and is at 
least three years late. Under au 
agreement reached at the end 
of February:, GEC was given 
six months in which to satisfy 
ihe Ministry of Defence that it 
could find solutions to the 

Meanwhile the ministry is 
considering bids from, three 
American companies that are < 
offering systems to replace the 
Nimrod. • 

The American aircraft, a 
Boeing. Grumman and Lock- 
heed. are undergoing technical 
assessment, and they are to 
submit firm prices by the 
middle- of next month,- - 

Mr Prior said that GEC 
would be submitting, an ap- 
proximate price estimate at 
the same time; 

He refused to discuss GECs 
price, but it is thought likdy to 
be between £250 mUtioft and 
£400 million, which would be 
lower than the American 
aircraft. ^ 

Mr Prior also disclosed for 
the first time that last July the 
Ministry of Defence 
controlkxate responsible for 
research had carried out a 
technical audit of GECs pro- 
gramme. That audit had sup- 
ported the technical validity 
of the programme to provide 
an initial operating capability. 

Under the agreement 
readied in February the cost 
ofGECs£50 million develop- 
ment programme will be 
shared by the company and

ny getting its money back only 
if the ministry decides to go 
ahead with the project after 
this phase. ^ 

Attempt to quell fears 
over hot rocks project 

By Pearce Wright, Science Editor 

The Department of Energy 
moved quickly yesterday to 
quell anxiety about the fate of 
British research into the devel- 
opment of geothermal energy, 
or the use of heat from hot 
rocks under the ground for 
generating electricity. 

There were fears that the 
project, in progress in Corn- 
wall. was threatened because 
of the Government’s delay in 
renewing financial support. 

The department said yester- 
day that the future manage- 
ment of the scheme was under 
review because several indus- 
trial concerns were now inter- 
ested in the venture. 

But the department would 
continue to pay for the work, 
if new arrangements were not 
settled before the expiry of the 
current research contract with 
the team, geologists at the 
Camborne School of Mines. 

The investigations, which 
have cost £19 million, began 
1 1 years ago. They resulted iu 
an experimental scheme to 
demonstrate the process of 
pumping water via one 
borehole into granite several 
thousand feet deep, and then 
recovering the heated water 
from a second extraction 

The geothermal energy 
unit's team of 60, based in a 
quarry near Slithians. Corn- 
wall is now producing enough 
heat by the process to heat 

several hundred homes or 20 
acres of greenhouses. 

But the next step is to drill 
deeper, using the boreholes to 
boil water into super-heated 
steam at 200C. The geologists 
believe that if they deepen 
existing 8,500ft boreholes to 
1 8.000ft, the yield of steam 
can be used to provide electric 
power, as a renewable and 
benign energy alternative to 
nuclear reactors. 

The research contracts fin- 
ish at the end of September. A 
Department ofEnergy spokes- 
man said yesterday that the 
question of renewal was still 
under consideration. 

Mr David Penhaligon, lib- 
eral MP for T ruro. has tabled a 
question for when Parliament 
returns next week, asking Mr 
Peter Walker, Secretary of 
State for Energy, to make a 
statement on the project's 

He is concerned at repents 
that a draft report enthusiastic 
about the chances of success 
has not yet been published 
and has been told of suspi- 
cions that it may be rewritten 
to present a less attractive 
picture because the Govern- 
ment wants to end its 

Privatization moves have 
so far foundered because some 
of Britain's main civil engi- 
neering groups have met legal 
problems over ownership of 
the heal source. 

Guide to 
aid home 

A manual intended to help 
protea the interests of new- 
home buyers was launched 
yesterday by the National 
House-Building Council, an 
independent body aimed at 
promoting better housing 
standards (Christopher 
Warman writes). 

The council, now in its 50th 
year, has previously published 
home buying guides but the 
latest version is in response to 
public demand for a more 
detailed guide to their own 
homes ana their construction. 

Calls for the introduction of 
a house “log-book", on the 
lines of a car log book, giving 
the legal title of ownership, 
were abandoned as not feasi- 
ble after talks with bodies 
including the Law Society. 

The handbook will be dis- 
tributed to all new .home 
buyers registered with the 
council, accounting for more 
than 99 per cent of the esti- 
mated 170.000 new homes 
sold each year. It includes 
advice on maintenance and 
security, with sections on 
brick and block and timber 
frame construction, anbd de- 
tails of the council's 10-year 
warranty scheme. 

MP urges 
ban by 

A senior Tory backbencher 
yesterday urged journalists to 
boycott a union conference to 
which only black reporters 
have been invited. 

Mr John Carlisle, secretary 
of the all-party Anglo-South 
Africa group of MPs, said: 
“This is the first instance of 
apartheid in Britain and it is 

The conference, of Nalgo, 
the local government union, is 
about how black workers are 
treated within and outride the 
trade union movement. 

Invitations to the confer- 
ence. to be held in Leeds next 
Saturday, say: “Black journal- 
ists are invited to attend the 
closing session. Representa- 
tives from the conference 
steering committee will be 
available for interview by all 
journalists from 5.30 pm.” 

The rest of the conference is 
held in private. 

But Mr Carlisle. MP for 
Luton North, said' “It is a 
disgraceful move by Nalgo to 
accentuate the difference in 
the colour of a person's skin 
and thus prevent some of 
them from reporting on politi- 
cal opinions.” 

Union to vote on Wapping 

of an end to the 
1 7-week-old dispute over the 
News International move to 
Wapping. east London, were 
uncertain today as the main 
print union involved began to 
ballot its members on the 
company's final offer. 

The crucial vote was ar- 

print workers who were dis- 
missed after striking in sup- 
port of demands for lifetime 
employment last January. 

The latest offer, whit* was 
presented at the weekend to all 
five unions concerned, lapses 
on Friday or on completion of 
any ballot that is taking place 
by then. Sogat officials said 
the result of their ballot would 
be known by the company's 
final deadline of June 6. 

Mr Rupert Murdoch, chair- 
man of News International 
increased an initial offer of 
£15 million in redundancy 
payments to £50 million, and 
a proposed gift of a printing 
plant at Gray’s Inn Road was 
enlarged to include the build- 
ing which formerly housed the 
editorial offices of The Sunday 
Times . . 

However he made no signif- 
icant concession on key de- 
mands for the reinstatement 
of the dismissed workers and 
recognition of trade unions at 
Wapping and at a News 

International plant at Kinning 
Park. Glasgow. Mr Murdoch 
said: “Our loyalty, is to the 
people, who are working for us, 
not to the people who went on 
strike and we've made that 
very dear.” 

Regardless of the final out- 
come. the improved offer 
appeared likely to increase 
strains between the various 
unions and within Sogat itself, 
where the leadership has been 
severely criticized by militant 
London branches which have 
insisted there should be no 
compromise on the key issue 
of lost jobs. 

The reaction of union lead- 
ers was evidently one of 
unhappy resignation to the 
fact that Mr Murdoch's latest 
offer was the best they would 
get. and that it was now up to 
their members to decide 
whether to take it or leave it 
Predictably, the response of 
pickets outside the Wapping 
plant yesterday was hostile. 

Mr Colin Williamson, dep- 
uty father of a Sogat chapel 
(branch) on The Sun and News 
qf the World, told reporters: 
“We didn't come out on strike 
for money, we came out 
because of Wapping and we 
want a job here. I would like to 
see a massive ‘no' vote, but I 
can't say if that will happen.” 

Mr Williamson villified Mr 
Norman Willis, general secre- 
tary of the TUC, as a jackal. 

“It's absolutely dis- 
I that Norman Willis 
and the national union leaders 
have been holding secret talks 
over the weekend and pulling 
the wool over the members’ 

Mr John Lang, committee 
member of the Sogat clerical 
branch at The Times, was 
critical of Miss Brenda Dean, 
the union's general secretary. 
“The whole deal and the way 
it has been achieved is abso- 
lutely disgraceful. I think 
Brenda Dean should resign /, 
and that is the opinion ofa lot * 
of people. 

“We want to campaign 
vigorously for a ‘no*- vote, to 
carry on with the dispute, but 
the national leadership don't 
want that at any price." 

Union sources believe that 
acceptance of the deal by 
Sogat could isolate the union 
from the NGA, which was 
thought likdy to reject the 

Independent commentators 
whose views were sought yes- 
terday included . Mr Charles 
Wintour. former editor of The 
London Standard. ”1 think if 
they’ve got any sense they’ll 
accept iL It’s not an ungener- 
ous offer in terms of * 
money... what alternative have 
they get? They're not going to 
get their jobs back at 
Wapping. which was their 
constant demand.”

Holiday operators advised 
tourists not to panic on the 
grounds that last year's bomb- 
ing was a form of political 
pressure on the Spanish gov- 
ernment and not anti-British. 

A Horizon holidays spokes- 
man said: “Our advice to 
people going to Spain is to 
remain vigilant and report 
anything unusual. ft is the 
advice we put out to our 
representatives some weeks 
ago following the Libyan situ-

police are investigating allega- 
tions of beatings and brutality 
were yesterday preparing to 
close it 

Social workers were making 
urgent plans to move the last 
five patients living at Oriel 
Lodge, Great Cornard, near 
Sudbury, Suffolk. 

The borne is at the centre of 
a police inquiry after claims 
that some of its mentally- 
handicapped patients had 
been beaten, drugged and 
locked in their rooms. 

Last week the local social 
services panel decided to can- 
cel the home's registration 
certificate, declaring it unfit 
for residential care., - 

The panel's reasons includ- 
ed criticisms of Oriel Lodge’s 
poor living conditions, inade- 
quate heating, hot water and 
kitchen facilities, as well as 
financial irregularities, lack of 
qualified staff and disputes 
between staff and the 
owner.Mrs Caroline Marsh, 
who is founder and executive 
director of the charity Share 
( Selected Homes and Residen- 

tial Environment for the Men- 
tally Handicapped).' 

Staff at Oriel Lodge blamed 
disrguntled former employees 
at foe home for a - smear 
campaign against Mrs Marsh. 

Mrs Betty Dyble. a rare 
asistant who is now in charge 
of the home, said yesterday: 
“We look after our patients 
very well. They are properly 
clothed, fed and loved. We 
don't even call them patients 
or residents; they are family 
and that is how they are 

“But some people who used 
to work here fell out with Mrs 
Marsh and left There were 
several dashes of personality. 
This work is not foe easiest in 
foe world." 

Mrs Marsh has claimed she 
bought the home from Share 
and was planning to register it 
privately under her own 

-She said she had spent 
thousands of pounds of her 
own money on improvements 
at ©riel Lodge, but. still faced

Poor response to abstracts 

By Geraldine Norman, Sale Room Correspondent 

While pioneering abstracts 
by Mondrian can fetch more 
than £1 million, furniture de- 
signed by his contemporary

uncertain following.

But the historic occasion 
was marred when the 
centrepiece of the show, a

The Dragon is a sister craft 
of the Iolar or “Eagle", foe

Princess visits drug centre 

The Princess of Wales chat- 
ted with drug addicts and 
alcoholics yesterday about 
their rained tires and the 
treatment they were receiving. 

The Princess had asked to 
visit Broadway Lodge, the 
pioneering rehabilitation cen- 
tre . at Weston-super-Mare, 
Aron, and spent nearly two 
hours talking with 40 patients. 

She learnt of marriages and 
homes broken through drink 
and of the dependency and 
sometimes death that follows 

The Pnncess earned the 
admiration of the centre's 
counsellors - some of them 
former addicts - for her knowl- 
edge of the drag problem. 

She surprised everyone by 
haring read Kick Heroi*, a 
book by. Liz Cutland, a coun- 
sellor whom she met 

Mr Edward Lindsey, head 
of treatment, said: “The Prin- 
cess is very well informed 
about the subject. There is no 
doubt at all she has taken a 
personal and genuine 

The Princess talked to two 
alcoholics, Mrs Jennifer Kerr, 
aged 38, married with two 
children, and Mr Terry War- 
burton, aged 37, married with 
two children but now- 

Mr Warburton said of the 
Princess: “She was very 
knowledgeable. She wanted to 
know about the isolation that 
alcoholism can canse. I told 
her it was a terrible feeling not 
being able to communicate 
with normal people." 

Broadway Lodge is a private 
treatment centre set up 12 
years ago by a group of 
professional people. It is a 
non-profit-making ' charitable 

Mr Lindsey explained: “We 
literally treat everyone from 
dukes to dustmen. We reject 
the suggestion that we only 
treat the rich. Last year about 
70 per cent of ov beds were 
assisted, mainly with money 
from the DHSS." 

He said the centre's philoso- 
phy followed that of Alcohol- 
ics Anonymous and Narcotics 

Anonymous. It was based on a 
treatment regime developed in 

It was in America that the 
Princess learnt of the lodge, 
and asked to see some of its 
work and to meet the staff. 

Mr Lindsey said that it was 
the oldest centre of its type in 
Europe. He felt that the 
Princess's visit would help 
boost the treatment regime 
which had the highest success 
rate in Europe, with 70 per 
cent of alcoholics and 60-70 
per cent drug dependants ab- 
staining after treatment 
• The Princess was yesterday 
criticized for not visiting an 
NHS treatment centre in Wes- 
ton-super-Mare, by Mr Edgar 
. Evans, secretary of the Com- 
jn unity Health Council. 

He said that her visit to the 
Broadway Lodge gave the 
royal seal of approval to the 
Minnesota method of treat- 
ment which is shunned by 
most doctors and the Govern- 
ment. Some wealthy and fam- 
ous patients paid nearly £100 
a day for treatment, he said. 

Sale of records 
suffers in wake 
of compact discs 

By Teresa Poole 

Demand for single and 
long-playing records has fallen 
sharply fois year, with sales of 
records high in foe pop chans 
suffering foe most 

Deliveries of singles to re- 
tailers fell by 17 per cent to 
1 5.2 million in the first three 
months of fois year, compared 
with foe same period last year. 
Deliveries of LPs fell by 
8 per cent to 9 million, ac- 
cording to the British Phono- 
graphic Industry, foe record 
company trade organization. 

It said the poor perfor- 
mance of singles' sales was 
partly due lo foe success of the 
Band Aid Christmas record, 
which sold more than one 
million copies early last year. 

But according to the Gallup 
organization, which compiles 
the music industry's official 
charts, there has still been an 
underlying drop with up to 
25 per cent fewer sales needed 
this year 10 send a record to 
foe top of foe charts. 

Figures for the past four 
weeks have continued to show 
a 15 to jfl per cent fell in total 
singles sales. Three weeks ago. 
“Rock Me Amadeus", by 
Falco, the German singer, sold 
fewer than 50.000 copies in 
the week it reached foe num- 
ber one position. “It got there 
by default." a Gallup spokes- 
man said. 

The BPI said that, by con- 
trast, sales of cassettes and 
compact discs have continued 
to rise. Cassettes are increas- 

ingly being purchased in pref- 
erence 10 LPs. with cassette 
deliveries showing a 1 3.6 per- 
cent improvement to 10.6 
million units in the first 

The burgeoning compact 
disc market showed the stron- 
gest growth with shipments 
more than doubling to 1.2 
million discs. Annual sales by 
British manufacturers to the 
trade are forecast to reach 
6 million units. 

However the British firms 
say that they are still failing to 
keep up with demand and 
retailers are taking advantage 
of imports from other EEC 

The overall value or record- 
ed music deliveries in foe first 
quarter increased by 3.4 per- 
cent to almost £72 million.

Drive for 

By John Young 
Agriculture Correspondent 

A £540,000 campaign to 
explain the uses of concentrat- 
ed butter for cooking is to be 
launched next month by the 
Butter Information Council. 

Although the product has 
been in the shops since the 
start of the year, as part of foe 
EEC effort to rid itself of 
surplus butter stocks, most 
consumers are still unaware of 
what h is or how to use it. 

Television, newspaper and 
magazine advertising will em- 
phasize its versatility as a 
cooking fat. but will also point 
:out that it is not intended for 
spreading on bread. 

Mr Chris Bird, council chief 
executive,- said be was confi- 
dent that the product would be 
readily accepted once its bene- 
fits were appreciated. 

It is selling for about 3l-32p 
for a 250 gram pack, which is 
more expensive than lard or 
cheap margarines, bnt it has a 
better flavour. 

Vicar goes 
in dispute 
over clock 

By Patricia Clough 

The vicar of foe picturesque 
village of Momacute, Somer- 
set (population 600), has re- 
signed after a dispute over foe 
ancient church clock. 

The Rev Archibald Dean, 
aged 72, resigned in despair 
after foe debate over whether 
to restore the clock or give it a 
new winding mechanism 
“turned personal". 

The clock, built 200 years 
ago by foe village blacksmith, 
has been stopped for a year, 
since Mr Clarence Rogers, 
who had climbed foe 52 
church tower steps and a 15ft 
ladder every day for 60 years 
to wind it by hand, turned S5 
and declared be had had 
enough. ' 

“A certain element wanted 
to restore it, with foe addition 
of electric winding, and a 
certain element wanted some- 
thing completely modem. 1 
suggested we should see if 
there was someone who could 
restore it and in fact there is." 
Mr Dean said. 

“I found myself caught in 
the middle of foe argument 
and' had to chair some very 
unpleasant meetings." 

In a letter in fois month's 
parish hews. Mr Dean said: 
“Frankly. I do not know what 
Montacute wants, but it seems 
I am not foe right person lo 
supply it". 

Mr Dean, who will continue 
in his other role as rector of 
Odcombe. Lufion and 
Brympion. preached his last 
sermon on Sunday. 

Mrs Amy.Yates, secretary 1 of 
the parish council, said his 
departure was particularly sad 
as they had since agreed on a 
study if foe clock's condition. 
“He was a very wonderful 
man and it is very sad that this 
has happened."

Austin Rover hit back yes- 
terday at rivals who have 
started a ‘'whispering 
campaign" against its new 
Rover 800 executive car being 
previewed in Switzerland by 
the big fleet buyers. 

The motor trade's prolific 
grapevine is awash .with ru- 
mours that the new car being 
produced in partnership with 
Honda is more Japanese than 
British and that this doubtful 
parentage should be taken into 
account by those companies 
with a “buy British" policy. 

In a long statement yester- 
day Austin Rover said the new 
Rover 800. which goes on sale 
on July 10. had an average UK. 

the model range and that this 
was the highest local content 
of any model range sold in 

The only main Japanese- 
made parts’ in some versions 
were the Honda V6 engine, 
gearbox and power steering, 
but most Rover 800s would 
have the new Austin Rover 
two-litre engine built at 
Longbridge, Birmingham. 

The average UK content of 
Ford cars produced in Britain 
is 83 per cent but its Granada, 
which will be the new Rover’s 
fiercest competitor, is import- 
ed entirely from Ford Germa- 
ny and contains less than 
7 per cent British pans. 

However, a Ford spokes- 
man pointed out Iasi night 
that its cars sold in Britain 
contain an average of only 
0.2 per cent of Japanese parts. 

General Motors cars assem- 
bled here contain only SO per- 
cent British pans. Both its 
successful executive cats, the 
Carlton and Senator, are Ger- 
man-made with a Vauxball 
badge swapped for their origi- 
nal Opel nameplate. 

The Rover 800 is the result 
of a unique partnership in the 
motor industry. 

The aim was to build two 
outwardly different cars from 
the same base. The Austin 
Rover version is being pro- 

The Honda version, called 
Legend, will shortly be built 
there also. In Japan. Honda 
will build both versions.

Physicists strive to generate the sun’s power on earth 

Imported sausages are 
blamed for swine fever 

Veterinary surgeons believe 
imported sausages could have 
started a swine fever epidemic 
which has devastated pig 
farms in the West Country, 
the Midlands and the north of 

It has been established that 
the plague began at Gloucester 
livestock market on April 21 
when thousands of pigs were 

Stock held by every farmer 
registered at the sale that day

of Agriculture veterinary sur- 
geons. but the source is still 

With more than 4,000 pigs 
now slaughtered at seven 
farms, the vets fear there could 
soon be further outbreaks 

before the epidemic is brought 
under control. 

Four of the farms are in the 
Tewkesbury and Coombe Hill 
areas of Gloucestershire and 
the others are in Shropshire, 
Herefordshire, and Wakefield, 

Mr David Williams, the 
deputy regional veterinary of- 
ficer who is running the 
ministry’s emergency head- 
quarters in Gloucester, said 
yesterday: "We are working 
bn a theory that imported 
sausages or other pig meat had 
the fever virus in it. 

“We believe it's likely that 
waste food from an infected 
batch was thrown out and 
then eaten by the animals.” 

Nearly 30 years ago scientists 
began laboratory experiments 
to reproduce thermonuclear 
fusion, the process that drives 
the stars. Their goal was to 
build machines that generate 
energy like the sun. thereby 
obtaining an inexhaustible 
source of power. This third 
report on alternative energy by 
Pearce Wright, Science Corre- 
spondent, looks at progress in 
the wry long-term research 
into fusion. 

The sun is a massive nucle- 
ar reactor. But. rather than 
splitting heavy atoms of urani- 
um fuel by the fission process, 
as in existing aiomic power 
stations, the solar furnace is 
fuelled by the lightest element: 

When two atoms unite, 
forming helium, a large 
amount of energy is released. 
More important for those 
searching fora dean source of 

power, there is none of the 
fission products of nuclear 

The temperature at the 
centre of the sun is estimated 
at about 20 million degrees 
centigrade. Powerful gravita- 
tional forces are at work, 
keeping the fusion reaction 

The challenge which physi- 
cists took up was how to create 
conditions on earth to dupli- 
cate that process on a small 
and controlled scale. 

The circumstances were re- 
created in an uncontrolled 
way 35 years ago, with the first 

G early, that method, which 
used a small A-bomb to 
provide the necessary high 
temperatures and density for 
fusion, is of no use in develop- 
ing a steady, controlled release 
of useful power. 

, Most useful energy from a 
fusion reactor comes from 
merging the two heavier forms 

of hydrogen; deuterium and 

First, however, strong elec- 
trical forces which repel the 
atoms from each other have to 
be overcome. 

To do this involves condi- 
tions in which temperatures 
approaching 100 million de- 
grees centigrade are generated 
in the hydrogen met The 
sheer scale of the research into 
the task of harnessing fusion 
has dictated that international 
collaboration is essential to 

The machine on which Eu- 
ropean hopes are pinned, for 
proving it can be done, is 
called Jet, which stands for 
Joint European Torus. 

It is one of four comparable 
devices throughout the world 
in experimental use or under 
construction. The others are 
in the United States, ibe 
Soviet Union and Japan. . 

Exciting results are begin- 
ning to emerge from the 

laboratory at Culham in Ox- 
fordshire, which is the home 
of the European venture. 

The scientists have a target

Court of Appeal 

Retrospective effect of rates cut 

Future inheritance can be property 

Macfarquhar and Another v 
PhiUimore and Others 
Before Lord Justice Dillon. 
Lord Justice Uoyd and Lord 
Justice Nicholls 
(Judgment given May 19] 

A retrospective reduction in 
the rateable value of a leasehold 
house could be taken into 
account in determining whether 
its rateable value exceeded 
£1.500 on April 1. 1973 for the 
purposes of the Leasehold Re- 
form Act 1 967. as amended by 
the Housing Act 1974. 

The Court of Appeal so held 
in dismissing an appeal by the 
landlords, the trustees of Lord 
Phiilimore's Voluntary Settle- 
ment. from a judgment of Judge 
Harris. QC. at West London 
County Court that the ap- 
plicants. Roderick and Emily 
Macfarquhar. were entitled to 
acquire the freehold of 55 
Campden Hill Road. Kensing- 
ton. London. 

Mr Nigel Hague QC and Mr 
David Ncuberger for the land- 
lords. Mr John Hicks QC and 
Mr Oliver Ticciati for the 

said that the applicants held the 
unexpired residue of a term of 
63 years of the house from 
March 1954 at a yearly rent of 

On March 23. 1965 its rate- 

able value was £597. New 
valuation lists came into force 
on April 1973 and the rateable 
value was then £1,784. In May 
1973 the valuation officer pro- 
posed a reduction to £1,605. 

By section 79 of the General 
Rate Act 1979 that reduction 
had effect for rating purposes 
from April 1. 1973. The ques- 
tion for the appeal was whether 
it had a like retrospective effect 
for the purposes of the 1 967 Act. 

The reduced figure of £1.605 
was still above £1.500. But in 
March 1984 the applicants were 
granted a certificate - on the 
ground of previous tenants' 
improvements - for a further 
reduction of£l 13. 

It was agreed that that reduc- 
tion related back for the pur- 
poses of the 1967 Act to April I. 
1973 and could be prayed in aid 
by the applicants. But to succeed 
in the objective of purchasing 
the freehold they had to pray in 
aid also the reduction from 
£1.784 to £1,605. 

The landlords argued, and 
Judge Harris had accepted, that 
section 79 of the 1979 Act 
applied generally to give 
retrospective effect, to April I m 
the relevant rating year, to any 
alteration in the Valuation List 
and thus applied - to give 
retrospective effect to April I. 
1973 for the purposes of the 
1967 Act. 

That submission was wholly 

unacceptable. Section 79 
showed merely that the genera] 
policy of the law was that 
alterations in the Valuation List 
were to be retrospective for 
rating purposes. If they were to 
be held retrospective for the 
purposes of the 1967 Act that 
had to be because of something 
in that Act 

The 1967 Act as originally 
enacted did not apply to the 
house. It came in. if at all. as a 
result of amendment of the Act 
by the Housing Act 1974. But 
the scheme of the Act had 
always been to enable tenants of 
houses held on long leases allow 
rents to acquire the freehold. 

Rateable value came in in two 
ways; first, in that the houses to 
which the Act could apply were 
only those the rateable values of 
which on the “appropriate day" 
exceeded a certain sum. and 
second in that the definition of a 
tenancy at a low rent was 
limited to tenancies under 
which the rent was not equal to 
or more than two thirds of the 
rateable value. 

Sections 1(1), (4). 4<|) and 
37(6) were relevant to the case. 
By section 1(6) the applicants 
had a right to acquire the 
freehold ir on the “appropriate 
day”, being April I. 1973 their 
house had a rateable value of 
not more than £1.500. 

Section 37(6) provided that 
section 25(/).(2) and (4) of the 

Rent Act 1977 was to apply for 
the purposes of ascertaining the 
rateable value. 

Looking into the relevant 
legislation it was manifest that 
Parliament intended that alter- 
ations in rateable values which 
had retrospective effect for rat- 
ing purposes to April 1. 1973 
were to have like retrospective 
effect for the purposes of the 
1967 Act. 

There was was no conceivable 
reason why alterations should 
have retrospective effect in re- 
spect of rateable values at the 
appropriate day but not in 
res pea of rateable values at 
April I. 1973. 

Moreover there was an in- 
dication in the Housing An 
1974. which introduced section 
1(6) into the 1967 Act, that 
Parliament supposed that such 
alterations would have 
retrospective effect in respect of 
rateable values at April 1, 1973. 

Though not agreeing with 
certain of the routes by which 
the judge had reached his 
conclusions, his decision that 
the rateable value of the bouse 
was on April I. 1973 and for the 
purposes of the 1967 An as 
amended not more than £1.500 
was correct.

Justice Nicholls delivered

Job rights transfer on exchange 

Kestongate Ltd v M flier 
Before Mr Justice Wood. Miss 
M. Boyle and Mr A. J. Ramsden 
[Judgment given May 20] 

An employee who was dis- 
missed by the transferors of a 
business after contracts of sale 
were exchanged but before 
completion was still employed 
••immediately before the 
transfer” and was entitled to 
bring a claim for unfair dis- 
missal against the purchasers of 
the business. 

"Transfer” in the phrase “im- 
mediately before the transfer" in 
regulation S of the Transfer of 
Undertakings (Protection of 
Employment Regulations (SI 
1 98! No 1794) was capable of 
referring to the whole period of a 
transaction, in the case of a sale 
from contract to final comple- 
tion. rather than to a particular 
point of time. 

The Employment Appeal Tri- 
bunal dismissed an appeal by 
the purchasers of a business. 
Kestongate Lid. from a decision 
of a London industrial tribunal 
last June that the employee. 
Beverley Miller, was entitled to 
bring her claim against them 
because the 19SI Regulations 

Regulation 5 provides "(2) 
... on the completion of a 
relevant transfer (a) all the 
transferor's rights, powers, du- 
ties and liabilities under or in 
connection with any such con- 
tract shall be transferred by 
virtue of this Regulation to die 
transferee: and (b) anything 
done before the transfer is 

completed by or in relation to 
the transferor in respect of That 
contract or a person employed 
in that undertaking or part shall 
be deemed to have been done by 
or in relation to the transferee.” 

“(3) Any reference . . . lo a 
person employed in an under- 
taking . . . transferred by a 
relevant transfer is a reference to 
a person so employed immedi- 
ately before the transfer, includ- 
ing. where the transfer is 
effected by a series of two or 
more transactions, a person so 
employed immediately before 
any of those transactions". 

Mr Mark Warwick for 
Kestongate: Mr Adrian Lynch 
for the employee. 

that the employee had been 
employed by Racquets Ltd who 
operated an indoor tennis club. 
On March 29. 1984 receivers 
were appointed. On August 24 
she was dismissed as from 
August 31. 

On August 20 contracts for 
the sale of Racquets to 
Kestongate had been exchanged 
and completion took place on 
September 14. 

It was after exchange of 
contracts that Kestongate dis- 
missed the employee. 

The employee alleged that her 
dismissal was by reason of the 
transfer of the business and 
claimed reinstatement. 
Kestongate denied liability. 

The Regulations had to be 
read as a whole but it was 
important to bear in mind the 
primary object of safeguarding 

the rights of employees. 

The important regulation was 
regulation S which contained 
the phrase “immediately before 
the transfer". The real question 
was w hether the word “transfer" 
had to be construed as meaning 
the date of complet ion or a point 
of time, or whether it was to be 
understood as the whole period 
of the transaction. 

It was to be noted that a 
distinction was made in regula- 
tion 5 between the phrases 
“before the transfer” and “after 
the transfer” and the phrase 
“completion''* of a relevant 
transfer and “the transfer is 

The latter phrases referred to 
a point in time and seemed to 
indicate that the word 

“transfer" on its own might 
refer to a period of time. 

The reference to “transfer" in 
“immediately before the 
transfer" was to a period of 
time That was not to say that 
the word “transfer” could not 
refer to a point of time but 
reading the regulations as a 
whole there was no difficulty in 
construing h as a period of time 
where circumstances perminetL 

Accordingly the employee 
was employed by Racquets im- 
mediately before the transfer 
and the regulations applied so 
that her claim should properly 
be brought against the trans- 
feree. Kestongate. The appeal 
would be dismissed.

Risk of time-loss 

Regina v Gayle 

Lord Lane. Lord Chief Jus- 
tice. sitting in the Court of 
Appeal with Mr Justice Leggatt 
and Mr Justice Kennedy on 
May 16. during the hearing of a 
renewed application for leave to 
appeal against sentence, 
addressing counsel, said that the 
renewed application was re- 
garded as frivolous and ground- 
less and the time was rapidly 
arriving, if it was not already 
here, when despite such an 
application being made on 
counsel s advice, the applicant 
would be ordered to lose time — 
that lime spent in custody 

awaiting the hearing should not 
count towaros sentence. 

giving the judgment of the court, 
said that the renewed applica- 
tion was frivolous and ground- 

it came with the support of 
counsel. As had already been 
made dear, in future, the feet 
that an application was renewed 
with the support of counsel 
would not necessarily mean that 
the applicant would not be 
ordered to lose time. 

On the present occasion as an 
act of mercy their Lordships did 
not so order. 

Michael v Michael 
Before Lord Justice O’Connor 
and Loni Justice Nourse 
[Judgment given May 16J . 

In certain circumstances an 
interest which a. person .might 
inherit under the will of an 
existing person could constitute 
property which she “is likely to 
have in the foreseeable future" 
within the meaning of section 
25(2)fa) of the ■ Matrimonial 
Causes Act 1973. 

However, the occasions on 
which such an interest would 
fell within section 2S(2Xa) were 
likely to be very rare. In the 
normal case uncertainties both 
as to the feet of inheritance and 
as to the time at which it would 
occur would make it impossible 
for a coun to hold that the 
interest was property which was 
likely to be had in the foresee- 
able future. 

The Court of Appeal so stated 
allowing an appeal by Mrs 
Patricia Michael from a derision 
of Judge Hutton in Gloucester 
County Court in proceedings for 
ancillary relief following the 
break-up of her marriage. 

The judge had decided that 
the husband's application for a 
lump sum and/or prope r ty 
adjustment orders should be 
adjourned indefinitely to await 
the death of the wife’s mother 
then aged 64. 

Mr Gavyn Arthur for the wife; 
Mr Peter Murphy for the hus- 

said that the question raised on 
appeal was whether the former 
matrimonial home at 20 
Dry bridge Street. Monmouth. 
Gwent, now occupied by the 
wife under a protected tenancy 
granted by her mother, the 
tree hold owner, was or was not 
property which the wife “is 
likely to have within the foresee- 
able future" within section 

While that section was 
primarily but not exclusively 
concerned with property and 
financial resources in which 
there was a vested or contingent 
interest, its broad and informal 
language showed that it was 
intended to operate at large and 
not in some strait-jacket tailored 
to the sober uniforms of prop- 
erty law. 

There could be no doubt that 
it could in certain circumstances 
extend to something which in 
the language of that law was a 
mere expectancy or spes 
successions, for example, an 
interest which might be taken 
under the will of a living person. 

Suppose, for example, a case 
where there was clear evidence, 
first, that the respondent's fa- 
ther was suffering from a termi- 
nal illness: second, that his will 
left property of substantial but 
uncertain value to the respon- 
dent; and. third, that it was 
highly improbable that he could 
or would revoke iL 

In such a case it could hardly 
be doubted either that the 
property was property which the 
respondent was likely to have in 
the foreseeable future or that the 
application should be adjourned 
to abide the death of (he father. 

However, those facts, being 
extremely special, demonstrated 
that the occasions on which' 
such an interest would fell 
within section 25(2Xa) were 
likely to be rare. • - 

Jn the normal case uncertain- 
ties both as to the feet of 
inheritance and as to the time at 
which it would occur would 
make it impossible to hold that 
the property was property which 
was likely to be bad in the 

The present case was one 
which fell within -the norm and 
his Lordship found it impossible 
to hold that 20 Drybridge Street 
was property which the wife was 
likely to inherit from her 

There seemed to be consid- 
erable uncertainty as to whether 

she would, take any interest, 
even a life interest, in the 
property. It was worth stating 
that anything less t han an 
absolute interest would not in 
- practice enable the wife to make 
a lump sum provision for the 

Even if his Lordship had 
found it possible to hold that the 
property was property which the 
wife was likely to inherit from 
her mother, it would still be 
impossible to hold that she was 
likely to inherit it in the 
foreseeable future. . . 

The husband placed some 
reliance on the feet that the 
mother suffered from high 
blood pressure. That could- not 
assist him. The world was frill of 
-women in their eighties who had 
had high blood pressure in their 

For those reasons his Lord- 
ship could only conclude that it

to publicize services 

*** •: . 

By Nicholas Timmins; Social ServicesCorrespondent 

The medical profession's 
disciplinary body, the General 
Mtdical Council (GMC), is 
proposing to relax its strict 
rules on advertising to allow 
information booklets to be- 
freely available to patients on 
the services that their doctors' 

■ The proposed rule changes, 
which, will be circulated for 
widespread consultation be- 
fore a final decision in No- 
vember, will “legitimize” the 
information booklets at 
present produced for patients 
by doctors in many practices. 

* The change would, howev- 
er. make the booklets freely 
available not only to existing 
patients but also to prospec- 
tive patients through local 
libraries, post offices. Citizens 
Advice Bureaux and other 
■‘centres of public 

_ That part of the proposal, 
however, looks set to be 
opposed by the British Medi- 
cal Association which fevouTS 
the production of information 
booklets and leaflets, but says 
that they should be available 
only to existing patients and to 
prospective patients who ap- 
ply -for them personally at the 
doctor’s surgery. 

In addition the GMC is 
proposing that family practi- 
tioner committees and com- 

munity health councils Should 
be free to publish' lists of local 
doctors, giving not just their 
names as at present but also 
their specialist qualifications 
and the services they provide.

ciples rather than specifying 
precisely what information 
could- be provided. ■ . ^ • 

Bui .Dr Donald. Irvine, 
chairman of the council's

drew up the guidance; said 
yesterday it could include

Ex-drivers depressed 
after stroke recovery 

By Thomson Prentice, Science Correspondent 


■ Most people who have been 
motorists before suffering a 
stroke do not return to the 
wheel after recovering from 
their illness, and many suffer 
from depression and reduced 
social activity as a result a 
survey has found. 

: More than half of the pa- 
tients - 58 per cent - who were 
able to drive before their 
stroke were not driving a year 
later, the survey involving 144 
cases showed. The average age 
rof the patients was just under 
J65 years, and 90 per cent were 

■v The research, carried out by 
'’the department of neurology 
at Frenchay Hospital. Bristol 
included assessments of arm 
-function? walking- functional 
ability-, and imalUgence quo- 
tient. and showed former driv- 
:ers to be “significantly more 
disabled” than drivers . 

Within the terms of the law, 
many people who have had a 
.stroke are likely to have a 
.-“relevant disability" for more 
than three months, and should 
. inform the Driver and Vehicle 
Licensing Centre (DVLC) at 
Swansea. Few. of the former 
drivers in the Bristol survey 

had done so. although none 
disputed his or her obvious 
inability to drive. 

Three-quarters of the pa- 
tients who had given up 
driving told the researchers 
that they could not, or were 
not allowed, to drive because 
of physical or mental disabil- 
ity, and the others said they 
did not wish to resume motor- 
ing, or could not afford to do 

Stopping driving was asso- 
ciated with a loss of social 
activities and more frequent 
depression among former 
drivers when compared with 

Thirty-nine per cent of the 
group who had given up were 
“probably” or “certainty” de-

It is the Irish government's

The changes are the result of 
pressure from the Royal Col- 
lege of' General Practitioners 
and the British Medical Asso- 
ciation for patients to be given 
more information about the 
services that doctors provide 
so as to make it easier to chose 
a family doctor. 

There has also been strong 
.pressure from the Govern- 
ment which at one stage was 
considering, proposing that 
family doctors should be al- 
, lowed to openly advertise 
‘ their services. 

The Government's discus- 
sion document on doctors' 
services, published last 
month, stopped short ofa firm 
proposal on advertising, but 
said that “local media could 
be used to disseminate factual 
information about practices". 

The GMCs proposal that 
the information booklets 
should be available at libraries 
and Citizens Advice Bureaux 
as well as at doctors' surgeries 
is likely, however, to be 
opposed by the BMA. 

Dr Michael Wilson, chair- 
man of the BMA's family 
doctors committee, said yes- 
terday: “The idea that they 
should be available at such 
places makes this very much 
more a marketing and adver- 
tising exercise.”

sugar hit 
bee farms 

Britain's commercial bee- 
beepers are facing serious 
financial difficulties after 
months of cold, wet weather 
and artificially high EEC sug- 
ar prices (John Young writes). 

In their natural state bees 
depend on pollen and nectar, 
and in a cold net summer, 
when the ordinary pollination 
evde is interrupted, they are 
less prodoctire. When that b 
followed by a bad winter, as 
has happened in the past year, 
many older bees fail to sum* e. 

When nectar is scarce com- 
mercial beekeepers make a 
substitute feed of syrnp made 
from sugar mixed with nater. 

But wit bin the EEC bee- 
keepers are obliged to pay the 
protected price of £400 a 
tonne, while important honey 
producers such as Israel are 
able to obtain it at the world 
market price of about £150 a 

Mr Desmond Winslow. sec- 
retary of the Bee Farmers 
Association, said yesterday 
that beekeepers were paying 
far more than usual for supple- 
mentary supplies. 

An additional irony was chat 
EEC market support for sugar 
beet growers was costing tax- 
payers about £1 million a day.

about 300 hives near Shaftes- 
bury in Dorset, said h was

Proposals to pay the new 
family credit for the low-paid 
through wage packets rather 
than a Department of Health 
and Social Services giro could 
cost some mothers about £ 1 6 a 
week, according to figures 
published yesterday by the 
Family Policy Studies Centre 
tNicholas Timmins writes). 

Family credit is to replace 
Family Income Supplement 
(FIS) "for the low-paid when 
the Government introduces 
social security changes in 
1 98S. present FIS is paid by 
a DHSS giro, often io the 
mother rather than the father. 

Under the family credit 
scheme, benefils will be paid 
into wage packets. 

Ministers have agreed to 
rc\ icw the proposal after Con- 
servative backbench pressure. 
It is argued that it is likely to 
transfer money away from 
mothers, who usually have 
responsibility for children. 

The centre said that, com- 
bined with the end of free 
school meals for children on 
FJS. a mother of two children 
aged under 1 1 and on an 
income of £80 a week would 
be about £ 1 6 a week worse off. 

While in theory husbands 
would hand over the money 
from their pay packets, “often 
women do noi know what 
their husbands earn and nei- 
ther will they know how much 
credit is included for their 
children.” the centre said.

Two-branches defended • Jury system praised # Insurance concern

professions ‘certain 
recipe for disaster’ 

- By Frances Gibb, Legal Affairs Correspondent 

Lord Hailsharo of Si Mary- 
lebone. the Lord Otancellor. 
warned the legal ’ profession 
yesterday that mutual hostil- 
ity between the Bar and 
solicitors or between either 
branch was a “certain recipe 
for mutual destruction”. 

In a vigorous defence of a 
two-branch legal profession, 
be said that each branch had 
hs pan to play. “This has 
nothing to do with restrictive 
practices or the supression of 

A dentist does not puli out a 
tooth single-handed, he said 
Similarly, being an advocai 
was a “two-handed job in 
court, even though we do not 
always choose a pretty assis- 
tant to see the client or the 

Lord Hailsham said that 
specialization of function was 
“absolutely essential in mod- 
ern law” and the equivalent of 
the division of labour in 
classical economics. 

The Lord Chancellor, who 
was giving the opening ad- 
dress at the Bar's first confer- 
ence in London, said the 
objects of such specialization 
were service lo ■ the client, 
assisting the court, the integri- 
ty of the profession and the 
interests of the public. 

He said it was extraordinary 
that there should be people 
who advocated the idea that 
barristers and solicitors 
should no longer be separate 
professions, mutually depen- 
dent. but providing together 
“a service to the public unpar- 
alleled elsewhere, in hs effi- 
ciency, its independence and 
its incorruptibility.” 

As well as barristers and 

solicitors, the English legal 
profession had three other 
specialist branches: there was 
the. professional judicial 
bench, teachers of law, and 
salaried lawyers. 

Each branch bad a “separate 
justification, each a separate 
economic base and.” he add- 
ed, “I fed an equal duty, to 
each one”. 

He called for the closest co- 
operation between the various 
branches and between them 
and the Lord Chancellor mu- 
tual hostility was a “sure 
prescription for disaster”. 

But on the contentious issue 
of legal aid fees, now being 
negotiated between his offi- 
cials and the legal profession 
in the wake of the Bar’s legal 
action against him. Lord 
Hailsham said it was “clearly 
impossible to say anything”. 

He -also launched a strong 
attack on the idea of a 
ministry of justice which he 
said was “constitutionally 
very dangerous" 

The independence - of the 
courts and the judiciary was 
“still at the very root of our 

“If is my conviction that a 
minister of justice based in the 
House of Commons would be 
a menace to the independence 
of the court and the judiciary, 
perhaps even of the legal 

In his view, it was also 
incompatible with court ad- 
ministration or judicial im- 
partiality that one minister 
should have responsibility 
both for judicial appointments 
and running the -courts, and 
also with prosecutions and 
penal treatment on the other. 

Warning of trial split 

By Our Legal Affairs Correspondent 

The new crown prosecution 
service is in danger of creating 
a split between prosecuting 
and defending barristers whi- 
ch could weaken the future 
\ quality of judges, a circuit 
leader said yesterday. 

Mr Gilbert Gray. QC. leader 
of the north eastern circuit, 
said there was a “disturbing”, 
trend towards centralization 
so that there were- fewer' 
paymasters of prosecution 
and defence work. 

If the prosecution was to be 
a centralized - organization, 
and the defence left to small 
firms of solicitors and other 
barristers the Bar would be 

“The grcaL good, honour- 
able and favoured will be 
prosecuting and others left to 
defend.” Mr Gray said. 

That could lead to the 
phsysical separation of prose- 
cuting and defence counsel 
which now existed at the 
Central Criminal Court where 
the prosecution had its own 

The result he said, would 
be some barristers becoming 
“prosecution ^ ..minded” and 
. others “defence oriented” and 
the balance that was essential- 

• •' In turn that could affect the 
judges of the future. “In years 
to come a future Lord Chan- 
cellor will , want to appoint 
some new judges and will go to 
circuit leaders and ask who is 
fit to be made a circuit judge,” 
Mr Gray said. 

“The answer may be, do 
you want a prosecutor or 
defender? We don't have all 

that many who are balanced in 
background and experience.” 

Mr Gray said that the new 
prosecution service could also 
lead to changes in the way 
.. barristers were paid. What was 
already happening was that 
the service wanted counsel to 
present the whole list of cases 
in the magistrates* courts and 
be paid for a session’s work 
instead of by .the traditional 
brief fee. i 

But the trend would not 
stop there, he said. On visits to 
the circuit he had seen perhaps 
30 barristers doing 10 case 
lists: That was not cost 

The “Treasury-led critics” 
would be bound to voire the 
same complaint and suggest 
that the system of pay for 
magistrates' courts be extend- 
ed to the crown court. 

Rising cost of insurance 


There is growing concern in 
the legal profession about the 
increasing premiums lawyers 
are having to pay for insur- 
ance against cases of negli- 
gence. and the lough 
standards imposed bv judges 
on lawyers accused of unpro- 
fessional conduct 

The feelings were aired 
vesterday during a workshop 
on Liabilitv for Professional 
Negligence at the Bar confer- 
ence. Speakers and the audi- 
ence called for new measures 
to meet the growing problems 
faced in their profession. 

Among the suggestions 
made by some of the 100 
assembled barristers and solic- 
itors were for a fund to help tti 
meet compensation! in cases of* 
professional negligence and, a 
statutory limit for sums paid 
to plaintiffs. 

There are fears that the type 
of negligent suits filed in the 
United Slates for professional 
-negligence may be repealed 
vhcre. Since 1950, nearly half 
•the cases of professional negli- 
..gencc have been brought to 
^court-in the past five years. 

Lawyers are now feeing 
rapidly-increasing Insurance 
premiums and some solicitors 

By a Staff Reporter 

in the City are refused insur- 
ance in large corporate deals 
where premiums are loo high. 
' One delegate said lawyers 
were even having to take out 
insurance to their deaths, 
because the statute of limita- 
tions for cases of negligence 
did not expire for 15 years. 

Mr Rupert Jackson, a bar- 
rister and co-author of Profes- 
sional Negligence, said that in 
spite of the laws applicable to 
alt professions in cases of 
negligence, the courts did not 
behave even-handedly to- 
wards each professional cate- 

Mr Peter Scott, QC vice- 
chairman of the Bar Council. 

“In cares involving solici- 
tors. by and large it is the court 
that determines the case ” he 
said. “In medical cases, it is 
the profession that determines 
whether or not a doctor has 
been negligent.” 

Delegates agreed that the 
more complex the profession, 
the more the legal system 
relied on expen witnesses. 

In the case of lawyers, 
judges often made up their 
own minds, and because the 
judges were generally good 
lawyers, they set a high stan- 
dard for the defendant to 

Mr Peter Scott. QC, the 
rice-chairman of the Bar, said 
accountants had already pro- 
posed a list of recommenda- 
tions regarding cases of 
negligence in their profession. 
He said the time would come 
shortly when the Bar Council 
should deride whether to ap- 
prove similar measures. 

One pupil barrister. Miss 
Sue Hunter, said the confer- 
ence and workshops worked 
very well. 

“You rarely meet barristers 
out of court, and this isa good 
opportunity to talk with col- 
leagues interested in the same 
field oriaw.” she said. 

The benefit of haring an 
Attorney General responsible 
for the prosecution service, a 
Home Secretary for criminal 
law and penal treatment with 
a Lord Chancellor in the 
House of Lords fixed on his 
seat on the Woolsack could 
. not be over estimated. That 
would be imperilled by the 
proposal for a new ministry. 

The Lord Chancellor went 
- on to attack recent proposals 
supported by some Bar leaders 
that responsibility for judicial 
appointments be removed 
from his department and 
placed with an advisory 

“Under our constitution 
parliamentary accountability 
implies a responsible minister 
and not a quango”, he said. 

“In practice, the Lord Chan- 
cellor is always advised before 
he acts: anyone who thinks he 
acts as a dictator is a fool”, he 
■ added. 

Later in an interview on 
BBC Radio 4. Lord Hailsham 
was asked about Judge James 
Pickles, the circuit judge who 
has recently published another, 
newspaper article in defiance 
of rules on judges taking part 
in public debate. 

.Asked whether such pro- 
nouncements could damage 
the independence of the judi- 
ciary. Lord Hailsham replied: 
“We shall just have to wait 
and see. It's always the 
nutcases which -cause the 
bother, you know.” 

.Asked directly if he was 
calling Judge Pickles a nut- 
case. Lord Hailsham replied 
with a chuckle: “Far from iL 
Why should that thought cross 
your mind for an instance?”

Police role in case inquiries attacked 

The role of the police within 
the English adversarial system 
of justice has been responsible 
for large numbers of miscar- 
riages of justice and for guilty 
men going free, Mr Ludovic 
Kennedy, the author and 
broadcaster. claimed 

Calling for a radical over- 
haul of the system to bring it 
more into line with that in 
France, he said the common 
factor in large numbers of 
miscarriages of justice was the 
behaviour of plain clothes 
investigating officers. 

They endulged “in all sons 
of malpractices to bring about 
a guillv verdict... and in what 
Lord Devlm has called ‘press- 
ing too hard against those they 
believe to be guilty*.” 

“So widespread has the 
habit become and so great 
now is public awareness of il 
that 1 understand juries in 
some couns are so distrustful 
of the police that they tend to 
bring in acquittals where the 
burden of proof rests mainly 
on police evidence.'* he said. 

The police were expccied to 
perform two incompatible

Support for juries in 
complex fraud trials 

jobs: preventing crime taking 
place and detecting ihc offend- 
ers. and conducting forensic 
inquiries which required quite 
different, skills of analysis and 

“How can such tasks be 
competently performed by an 
organization that does not 
require its members on entry 
to have gained even a single 
educational O level and that 
trains them in some ways like 
from line troops?” 

This was made for the 
police, society and for justice 
which has now found itself in 
a situation of double jeopardy 
where not only the innocent 
were convicted' but the guilty 
go free. Mr Kennedy said. 

The average conviction rate 
of the crown court, of under 50 
percent, would seem partly at 
least to bear that out. 

“This state of affairs is a 
direct consequence of the 
adversary' system of justice.” 
Mr Kennedy said he did not 
believe matters would be im- 
proved by the new prosecu- 
tion service where the police 
will no longer be in charge of 
prosecuting crime, because 
thev would still be responsible 
for investigating it. 

“Is it not the pressure on the 
police, both from their superi- 
ors and from society, to get 
results, coupled with a sense of 
failure and frustration at not 
gelling them, that drives them 
on so many occasions to egg 
the pudding?” 



The jury is a cornerstone of 
our unwritten constitution and 
most be retained for complex 
fraud trials, Mr Michael Hill, 
QC, chairman of the Criminal 
Bar Association, told the 

“I have seen juries do 
extraordinary things. But then 
I have seen judges do equally 
extraordinary things,” he said. 

He added that be had also 
seen juries do “very brave 
things, reacting against what 
they perceive to be oppression, 
even if that reaction could be 
castigated as flying in the face 
of the evidence and of clear 
judicial guidance.” 

Mr Hill was speaking on the 
likely impact of the Roskill 
report on fraud trials, which 
suggests that juries in complex 
fraud be scrapped and re- 
placed with a fraud trials 

Jury trials in complex fraud 
took a long time, cost a lot of 
money and imposed a consid- 
erable burden on lawyers, 
judges and juries, be said. 

Bat the truth was that the 
profession and the legislators 
had been caught out by the size 
and complexity of modern 

“It seems a little illogical to 
say that the cure is to abolish 
the andience because the play- 
wright, the producers, the 
directors and die actors are not 

doing their job properly.” 

Juries were also needed to 
protect the system, Mr Hill 
said. They represented the 
public's involvement in the 
criminal process. “Just think 
or the effect upon an already- 
divisive society of the first 
acquittal in a major City fraud 
trial by a fraud trials tribunal 
made np of the good and 

There would be significant 
changes in other fields as a 
result of the Roskill report, he 
said, with considerable impact 
on the trial process and the 
Bar's work practices. 

The Bar had called for such 
reforms for years and was 
determined that the chance 
now offered by the report 
should not be lost. But Mr Hill 
took issue with a number of 
the report's key proposals. 

Looking at proposals likely 
lo be implemented, he said 
that a new single body in 
charge of all fraud investiga- 
tion was a good idea. But he 
was concerned that the pro- 
posed involvement of lawyers 
at an early stage in an investi- 
gation posed a threat to their

Speakers at a conference 
workshop on public law' criti- 
cized ihe present judicial sys- 
tem for being unsatisfactory 
and unwieldly. 

Mr Michael BelolT. QC. the , 
chairman of the workshop, i 
predicted that the role of the 
courts as watchdogs over the 
executive would be under- 
mined unless the laws were 

“Litigants find themselves 
enmeshed in a new web of 
procedural technicalities lar- 
gely spun of different threads 
from the old.” he said, adding 
that it was a reproach to a 
mature system of justice. 

Professor Jeffrey Jo well. 
Dean of the Law School at 
University College. London, 
said British citizens did not 
enjoy the same rights as 
Europeans because adminis- 
trative law developed in EEC 
countries was rarely applied 

He believed courts in Brit- 
ain would have to tread 
carefully and condemned the 
present judicial guidelines for 
being “vague and unwieldly”. 

He called for a body of 
neutral legal figures, possibly 
stipendiary magistrates, akin 
lo the French svstem of exam- 
ining magistrates. 

All serious crimes would be 
reported to them, they would 
interview suspects and wit- 
nesses and direct police in 
their inquiries. 

They would also make rec- 
ommendations. and not the 
police, to the crown 

This would achieve two 
vital reforms at one stroke: 
prevent the conviction of the 
innocent as a result of police 
malpractice and. where juries 
tend to disbelieve police evi- 
dence, prevent the acquittal of 
the guilty. 

As for the acquittal of the 
guilty as a result of “the skills 
and tactics of counsel”, there 
could be no remedy for that 
until trial procedures as well 
as investigative ones are con- 
ducted on inquisitorial lines, 
he said. 

Among the advantages of 
the French system were that it 
avoided the "pscudo-dramatic 
atmosphere” of the adversary - 
system, saved time in that 
lawyers did not have to go 
over the same ground: and did 
not grind to a hall on frequent 
occasions while the judge 
decided what was admissible 
as evidence. 

As its object was to find the

* Mr Yitzhak Zamir, the Is- 
raeli Attorney-General, com- 

.■ plained yesterday that he was 
i facing “the most severe pres- 
t sures ever brought upon me” 

•( from the Government to drop 
, the prosecution of Mr Avra- 
ham Shalom, head of Shin 

* Bet. the counter-intdfigence

i Mr Zamir said, however, 
that he was withstanding the

Israel was feeing a very impor- 

5 tarn matter of principle in- 
\ volving the rule of law and the 
: principles of justice. Unlike 
. members of the inner Cabinet, 
“ he did not believe these 
principles contradicted na- 
t lionai security considerations 
3 and therefore there was no 
’■ reason for withdrawing the 
, case. • 

Most of the inner Cabinet, 
$ which discussed the case at 
length on Monday, believes 
; that a risk to the security 
services is involved. Mr

The accident occurred on

.. .if < 

determined to oppose Mr 
Zamir's arguments, although 
he does not contest the legal 
right of the senior law officer 
to institute the prosecution. 

Mr Zamir has refused to 
make public any details of the 
case, which involves the 
deaths of two Palestinians in 
Shin Bet custody. They had 

been captured by the Army on 
a bus they had hijacked to 
Gaza in April 1984. 

Photographs showed them 
being taken from the bus 
looking fit, yet they died only 
a few hours later. 

The two secret investiga- 
tions into the incident hugely 
cleared Shin Bet,' although- 
three of its agents were dis- 
missed. One of them supplied 
information at a High Court 
hearing about the way evi- 
dence had been prepared for 
the two inquiries. Mr Zamir is 
nsing this in his prosecution. 

Police are being instructed 
to investigate complaints that 
evidence was tampered with, 
that witnesses were suborned 
and that documents were 

withheld bom the commis- 
sions of inquiry. 

The case is provoking a big 
political storm. Four no-confi- 
dence motions were tabled 
against the Government m the 
Knesset yesterday, with sup- 
port from both sides of the 

The right warns Mr Zamir 
dismissed and is furious with 
the Government for not stop- 
ping the prosecution. The left 
supports him and is furious 
with the Government for 
putting pressure on him. 

Mr Zamir is no stranger to 
controversy and has often 
been criticized for turning 
what is supposed to be a non- 
politicai job into a left-wing 
institution. Bowing to this 
criticism he has already an- 
nounced that he is prepared to 
resign. There have bran cans 
for. limits on the Anomey- 
General’s powers. 

Yesterday, however, he 
made dear that he win stay on 
long enough to ensure that the 
investigation into Shin Bet is 
properly launched.

yesterday made test runs 
across the Beilin Wall after the 
row over passport checks by 
East german . soldiers — ana 
wide allowed through without 
having to show their 

But on most occasions the 
East Berlin guards, after ap- 
parently consulting superiors, 
told them they were bong 
allowed through "for the last 
time” in that way. 

On Thursday the East Ger- 
man foreign ministry sent a 
letter to all embassies in East 
Berlin saying that their per- 
sonnel would have to produce 
passports at the crossing 
points into West Berlin in- 
stead of the identity card 
issued by the ministry. 

On Sunday the guards start- 
ed to refuse crossing to diplo- 
mats who failed to do so. 
Italians, and - Danes were 
among diplomats who re- 
furnea to- East Berlin rather 
than show their passports. • 

! Yesterday the wife of the 
Portuguese ambassador was 
turned back. .She had wanted 
to cross over to meet Tier 
husband, who was arriving at 
Tegel airport in West Berlin. 

. The dispute appears to have 
arisen out of East Germany's 
periodic attempts to establish 
that Berlin is its capital/ 

must await a long-delayed 
peace treaty. 

Only the Soviet Union 
recognises East Berlin as the 
East German capital. The 
embassies of the Western 
occupying powers in East 
Berlin are regarded by them as 
being to East Germany, but 
not situated in its capital la 
official East Germany state- 
ments, and in its maps and 
road signs, the capital is 
referred to as Berlin, not just 
East Berlin. 

The three Western powers 
oppose the showing of 
pessports because, in their 
view, that would imply that 
the crossing points at the wall, 
and at the River Spree which 
runs through the city, consti- 
tuted a national border rather 
than the line of an occupation 

In order to avoid suggesting 
that East Germany has any 
rights in the matter, Britain,' 
the United States and France 
are raising the issue with the 
Soviet Unioivas fellow occur

Lebanon hit by collapse of currency 

From Robert Fisk 

The hopelessness of Leb- 
anon's political and military 
situation has brought about a 
new and apparently unpre- 
ventable crisis in the country's 
economy, a collapse of the 
Lebanese pound — by more 
than a third in seven weeks - 
every bit as dramatic as the 
grim events - which have 
caused its downfall. 

Claims by the Shia Muslim 
leader, Mr Nabih Beni, that 
Mr Yassir Arafat's Palestine 
Liberation Organization 
(PLO) is plotting to destabilize 
southern Lebanon, and allega- 
tions by the Christian 
PbaJangist commander, Mr 
Samir Geagea, that the Syrian 
security police were behind 
car bombings in east Beirut 
over the past week have 
helped to create the worst fell 
in the Lebanese pound — to 47 
to the pound sterling — since 
the country gained its 
independence. 1 

Already Mr Beni and Mr 
Camille Chamoun. the Chris- 
tian Maronite Minister of 
Finance, are engaged in a 
damaging dispute over the 

economy, in which the former 
is making thinly veiled sugges- 
tions that the country's fi- 
nances have been channelled 
imo a bank on the Christian 
side of the Beirut front line. 

On a more real level, the 
cost of meat in west Beirut has 
risen by as much as 100 per 
cent in only six weeks. The 
price of beef has gone up from 
40 to 90 Lebanese pounds 
(approximately £2) per kilo 
since early April and mutton 
has gone from 85 Lebanese 
pounds a kilo to 150. 

A fierce battle between Mr 
Beni's Amal militia and PLO 
men loyal to Mr Arafat contin- 
ued for a second day around 
the Bourj el-Barajneh Pales- 
tinian camp in west Beirut 
yesterday, with warnings from 

Muslim radio stations that the 
Phalangists were moving mili- 
tary equipment across the east 
of the city. 

Mr Geagea's claims of Syri- 
an involvement in the car 
bombings were accompanied 
by the names of those he 
believes to be responsible. A 
recent car bomb in Jounieh. 
he said, had been rigged in the 
basement of a furniture show- 
room in the nonhem city of 
Tripoli “under the supervi- 
sion of two Syrian majors”, 
while other bombs had been 
made in a converted garage in 
the Bekaa town of Hermel. 

Mr Geagea named several 
Lebanese as responsible for 
the explosions, including a 
man he claims is a teacher in a 
Tripoli college, and a Syrian

ther Boutros Abi-Akl. the 
director of the Christian 
Cadmos school outside Tyre. 

There are suspicions in 
Beirut thai some of the latter 
deeds may have been perpe- 
trated by Mr Bern's own co- 
religionists in the Hezbollah 
movement, while the east 
Beirut bombings could have 
been the work of Mr Geagea's

turning out to be the butt of 
most people's hatred.

Bulldozers move into Crossroads 

From Michael Hornsby 


A dozen government bull- 
dozer moved into the Cross- 
roads squatter camp yesterday 
and began levelling the area 
devastated during savage fac- 
tion fighting last week. 

More than 4,000 shacks 
were destroyed, at least 42 
people kilted and more than 
20,000 left homeless. 

The Government says it 
intends to redevelop the area 
for black housing but will not 
allow former residents to 

The plan is to shift them to a 
vast new black township 
called KJiayelitsha on wind- 
swept sand dunes about IS 
miles south-east of Cape 
Town. Most are reluctant to 
go because or the cost of 
commuting to Cape Town. 

A case of typhoid

of the emergency relief centres 

where refugees from Cross- 
roads have been given tempo- 
rary shelter. A district council

Tibbiu said instructions he 
had issued last week for the

been carried out. 

Meanwhile, the Supreme 
Court has issued a temporary 
injunction restraining the po- 
lice. the Army and vigilantes 
from permitting or taking part 
in attacks on the remaining 
residents of Crossroads. Vigi- 
lantes are widely alleged to 
have been helped' by police in 
last week's fighting. 

The application for the 
injunction was made on Mon-

day by six squatter leaders 
who claimed that the destruc- 
tion of the shacks had been 
pan of “a systematic plan**. 
They said police and soldiers 
had threatened to attack other 
pans of the camp if these were 
not evacuated. 

Detailed affidavits present- 
ed to the coun by the squatters 
alleged that police supplied 
vigilantes with arms and am-

throwers, and also took part 
themselves in the burning of 
the wood and corrugated iron 

The vigilantes, known as 
“witdoeke" (white handker- 
chiefs) from the white arm- 
bands they wear, are led by Mr 
Johnson Ngxobongwana, a 
conservative figure who at one 
time ran the Crossroads settle- 
ment as a private fiefdom.

other squatters. 

In die past .year of unrest, 
his position has been chal-

valid until June 13 when it 
will lapse unless extended. 
Meanwhile, the police and 
Army will have an opportuni- 
ty to present evidence rebut-

More political fallout after Chernobyl 

EEC more Finns step back 

from the brink 

East bloc 
food ban 


From OUi Kmaea. Helsinki 


U mh 

From Richard Owen 

The EEC yesterday moved 
towards a new system for 
monitoring radiation in im- 
ported foodstuffs to replace 
the outright ban on East 
European imports imposed 
earlier this month after the 
Chernobyl disaster. 

The ban expires on Satur- 
day, but farm ministers ruled 
oat compensation payments 
from EEC coffers for Europe- 
an farmers who have suffered 
losses as a result of anti- 
radiathu measures. 

The baa on East European 
food was proposed by the 
Commission on May 6, but ran 
into national differences 
among the Twelve over a scale 
for measuring radiation in 
food traded within die EEC. 
The ban was held up for ever a 
week and was only eventually 
adopted on condition that it 
would be reviewed by the end 
of May. 

EEC ambassadors met yes- 
terday in an attempt to agree 
on a new scale for moiutonng 
radiation in food entering the 
EEC from all third countries 

The move agam encountered 
problems when some countries 
objected that the levels laid 
down for external trade were 
at odds with those In force in 
parts of the Community. 

Finland's Rural party ves- 
terday backed away from 
causing a government crisis 
and withdrew a motion which 
demanded the dismantling or 
the nation’sfour nuclear reac- 
tors bv the year 2000. 

The' party is a junior paring 
in the four-party centre-left 
coalition of the Prime Minis- 
ter, Mr Kalevi Sorsa. and its 
pulisi policies have led to 

frequent clashes. 

Mr Sorsa made it dear that 
the Government would resign 
if the Rural party did not 
withdraw its motion, which he 
said would undermine the 
coalition's ability to handle 
energy policies. 

The Rural party's parlia- 
mentary group needed only a 
short morning meeting to toe 
the line. Collapse of the Gov- 
ernment would almost cer- 
tainly have meant snap 
elections, and die party is 
doing badly in the opinion 

These difficulties were the 
motive behind the strongly 
anti-nuclear motion because 
the party badly needs new 

The motion was a dear 
expression of how sensitive 
the nuclear power question 
has become. Finland reties 
heavily on nuclear power, 
which produces more than 40 
per cent of its electricity. 

Environmentalists have 
campaigned against ordering a 

fifth 1 . 000 -megawan reactor, 
and most panics were m 
difficulties with their rank and 
file even before Chernobyl 

The disaster hit like tight, 
ning in the middle of a tense 
internal debate, and (he fifth

From David Watts - 

The Japanese Foreign Min- 
ister. Mr Shin taro Abe, walks 
into the bear’s cage tomorrow. 
He is likely to gel a cool

will find himself having to

of the chairman of the seven 
Western summit, nations, for

The Japanese Foreign Min-

and may well overshadow any 
hopes that the Japanese have

The Christum Democrats

whether the Chernobyl disas-

Chancellor Kohl said the

emphasized that Chernobyl

Union in general than abort 
nuclear power in general. 

“The Inadequate Informa- 
tion policy of the Soviet Union

Chernobyl has not strength- 
ened confidence in Soviet arms

in their verification,- he said. 

Vigorous remarks to a meet- 
ing of young Christian Demo- 
crats last Monday got Hen- 
Kohl wide press coverage 
when he said: “It's pathetic of 
the SPD (Social Democrats) to 
say ‘We’re going to shot 
nuclear power plants down

“stepid cultural pessimism”.

US goes out on a limb 
in spoiling consensus 
at East- West meeting 

. The United States yesterday, 
isolated itself front the other 
34 countries at the Bern 
conference on East-West hu- 
man contacts by refusing at 
the last minute to endorse the 
final declaration. 

Western delegations shared 
the British view that this was a 
disappointing end to six weeks 
of discussions which had at 
least produced indications 
that Soviet bloc countries 
were aware that some of the 
■ restrictions on their people 
must be relaxed. 

The final document a com- 
promise pm forward by Swit- 
zerland on behalf of the' 
neutral and non-aligned na- 
tions, was seen as a step in the 
right direction. 

The US delegation bad 
given the impression that it 
would go along with a consen- 
sus. But after consulting 
Washington, its leader, Mr 
Michael, Novak, intimated 
that the credibility of the 
Helsinki process would be 
undermined were ibe US to 
associate itself with so “slight" 
a document devoid of mea- 
sures to ensure compliance 
with its objectives. 

The general conclusion was 
that administration hardliners 
had ordered a veto. 

The Soviet delegation, say- 
ing it regretted this negative

attitude, asked the Americans 
to reconsider their position 
and' doubled whether “ordi- 
nary people” -would under- 
stand it 

“The draft final declaration 
we ended up with had rn our 
view some good things in it" 
Sir Anthony, Williams, leader 
of the British ddegation, said. 
"But one of the things about 
the whole Helsinki process is 
ihat it's a matter of battering 
on, trying to press for better 
observance of undertakings 
that have been entered Into. 

“Here, we were attempting 
to ensure that in human 
contacts things do not move 
less smoothly than they need. 
In many of these things we 
may have achieved some- 

The Swiss delegate. Mr 
Edouard Brunner, remarked: 
“One cannot do diplomacy 
with amateurs." 

Mr Niall MacDermoli, Sec- 
retary-General of the Interna- 
tional Commission of Jurists, 
said: “It would surely have 
been better to accept the 
compromise proposals In the 
draft declaration, which, even 
if modest, would have created 
a better atmosphere for the

Moscow’s canny Kissinger 

Dobrynin moves 
to centre stage 

From Christopher Walker.Moscow 

The cordial, and occasional- 
ly even jovial, meeting between 
British parliamentarians and 
a Soviet delegation led by Mr 
Gorhachov has confirmed that 
Mr Anatoly Dobrynin is now 
- playing a central role in Soviet 
foreign policy-making. 

Tall and avuncular, with 24 
years of diplomatic back-slap- 
ping in Washington behind 
him, Mr Dobrynin, in his new 
post as one of the 11 secretar- 
ies of the Communist Party's 
ruling Central Committee, has 
become the catalyst for the 
biggest shake-up in Moscow's 
foreign policy machine for 

After Monday's meeting in 
the Kremlin- both Lord 
Whitelaw, the deputy. Prime 
Minister, and Mr Denis 
Healey, the shadow Foreign 
Secretary, remarked on the 
part played by the fanner 
Washington envoy in tire two- 
and-a-half horns of talks. 
They said Mr Dobrynin's 
command of English was such 
that on more than one occasion 
he had to step in and provide 
the usance for a particular 

As bead of the < Central 
Committee's international de- 
partment, he has been de- 
scribed by more than one 
Western diplomat as the Sovi- 
et Henry Kissinger. Until Ills 
recent return to Moscow, the. 
committee^ influence had 
been badly eroded, both by the 
age of his predecessor, Mr 
Boris Ponymaryov, and the 
power of Mr Andrei Gromyko, 
who was only moved upstairs 
from the Foreign Ministry to 
the presidency last July. 

The comparison with ^ Mr 
Kissinger conies not only from 
a similar intellectual deftness, 
but also because of the new 
weight given to the Communist 
Party in the crucial field of 
foreign policy. 

One Kremlin- watcher ex- 
plained: “If the Foreign Min- 
istry is the equivalent of the 
US State Department, the 
committee under Dobrynin cs 
becoming the National Securi- 
ty Council ... As the commu- 
nist system folly intended, the 
minister's role in formulating 
policy is bong downgraded." 

At the age of 66, Mr 
Dobrynin is regarded by 
American politicians as the 
Soviet official with the canni- 
est understanding of the West- 
ern mind. He is also seen as 
holding a genuine wish 
forsome form of coexistence 
between East and West. “Dur- 
ing most of his time, in 
Washington, he was the very 

epitome of it (coexistence)," 
one American observer said 

Althosgh Mr Dobrynin's 
taste for the good things of fife 
may be ont of tune with the 
new atmosphere of austerity 
being encouraged inside the 
Kremlin, his proven ability to 
sefl Soviet policies to the West 
is known to be greatly prized 
by Mr Gorbachov. 

In the policy-making field, 
he is being assisted by another 
American specialist, Mr 
Georgy Kornienko, who was 
moved from the position of 
First Deputy Foreign Minis- 
ter, adding to the- switch in 
inflneoce from ministry to 
party. His other deputy is the 
well-respected Mr . Vadim

nation followed last week’s 
important in-camera Kremlin 
conference, which signified a 
wholesale revamp of Soviet 
diplomacy and set the seal for 
Mr Dobrynin's new position of | 
influence. ! 

Mr Healey said tire shake - 1 
up in the foreign affairs ma- 1 
chine was one reason why 
recent arms control initiatives ; 
launched by Mr Gorbachov 
hare foiled to produce material 
results in Soviet negotiating 
positions at Geneva and else- 
where. “The doable is that in 
recent months some of these 
people have just not known 
who their real boss was," he 

Although Monday's get-to- 
gether was public proof of Mr 
Dobrynin's influence, the MPs 
indicated H was also proof that 
Soviet foreign policy was now 
fully in the hands of the 
Kremlin leader. “There was no 
question that Mr Gorbachov 
was Ibe man really in charge," 
one MP said. “It was an 
. impressive performance." 

Carrington worried by 
‘wimps’ and ‘cowboys’ 

From Richard Owen, Brussels 

Lord Carrington, the Naio 
Secretary-General, yesterday 
gave a warning of the dangers 
of “megaphone cartoonery 
on both sides of the Atlantic, 
“with Eurowimps in one set ol 
papers and American cowboys 
in the other". 

He was speaking on tne eve 
of the six-monthly Nato for- 
eign ministers’ meeting, which 
opens in Halifax. Nova Scotia, 

tomorrow. ... 

Before leaving for Halifax 
today. Lord Carrington said in 
Montreal that Nato need not 
be . unduly gloomv and mo 
shown that it had the tW; 
ience to overcome difficulties. 

Headlines and cartoons 

about European-Amencan 

differences within the alliance 
would not fast Jbr even But 
the attitudes ihp 
prove long-lived 
be taken seriously, he said- _ 

hardly realistic in the present 
situation of East-West ten- 
sion. which the US seems 
anxious to prolong." 

Hie final draft was estimat- 
ed by its compilers to have 20 
per cent more provisions of 
substance than the document 
that emerged in 1 983 from the 
first Helsinki review confer- 
ence in Madrid, and about 40 
per cent more zftaa zfte 1975 
Helsinki Final Act itself. 

The purpose of the confer- 
ence of expats was to examine 
the extent to which provisions 
of the Helsinki declaration 
were being respected and de- 
termine bow they could be 
more effective. 

The compromise draft set 
out proposals for facilitating 
family meetings and reunifi ca- 
nons— with particular consid- 
eration for children — and for 
eliminating obstacles to East- 
West marriages “provided 
personal and professional cir- 
cumstances permit". 

Other proposals concerned 
private and professional travel 
and improving conditions for 
individual or group tourism. 

Another measure aimed to 
end interference in Easi-West 
postal and telephone services. 

Religious institutions were 
to be allowed to exchange 
visits and organize gatherings 
and pilgrimages.

Tnis month's wave of pub-

Belgian teachers in' both

Libya was dearly out of the

From Neil Kelly, Bangkok 

General Artftit Kami an g- 

Ek. the ambitious Thai Army 
commander-in-chief who was 
due to retire in three months, 
was yesterday dismissed be- 
cause of his political activities, 
h was the first time in 
Thailand's modem history 
that a civilian government has 
dismissed its military chief. 

On his return to Bangkok 
from a visit to the south. 
General Arthit said he would 
accept his dismissal. There 
would be no problems as he 
would be happy to work with 
his successor. General 
Chao va lit Yongchaiyuth. who 
met him at the airport. 

General Arthit dismissed 
suggestions that sections of the 
.Army might stage a coup in 
protest at bis sacking. He said 
he would remain in the Army 
as supreme commander, a 
symbolic post with no troops 
under its command, until his 
retirement in August 

Hts dismissal followed 
months of wrangling with 
General Prem Tinsulanonda, 
the Prime Minister, and could 
have wide repercussions; par- 
ticularly in the run-up to the 
general election on July 27. 

The only government state- 
ment made yesterday came 
from its chief spokesman, who 
said the dismissal had been 
•‘made necessary by the on- 
going situation". He is be- 
lieved to have been referring 

to General Arthit's alleged 
interference m preparations 
for ihe election and bis part in 
engineering the parliamentary 
defeat of the Government a 
month aga 

A respected political analyst 
said he believed General Prem 
decided to act against General 
Arthit to ensure that the Army 
did not upset the election or 
the Constitution. 

Although be has lost the 
position which traditionally 
has been the stepping stone to 
the premiership. General 
Arthit may si ill emerge as a 
political force because many 
politicians expected to be in 
the new Parliament would like 
him to replace General Prem. 

He has said he will not run 
for election as an MP. but 
would prefer, like General 1 
Prem. to be a neutral prime 
minister above parties. 

General Chaovalit also has 1 
political ambitions and has 
said be will retire from the j 
Army early, possibly next year 
at the age of 55. to pursue '

A close adviser to the Prime I 
Minister, he has for some time 
been regarded as the brains of 
the Army. He was one of the 
men behind Thailand's en- 
lightened and successful poli- 
cy against communist 
insurgents, which has induced 
most of them to give up their 
struggle and surrender to the

From Michael Hamfyn 

A campaign against embez- 
zlement, bribery and property 
theft is being waged by Dr 
Najib. the new Afghan trader. 
. Western embassies suggest- 
ed : yesterday that the cam- 
paign. which one diplomat 
called "Gorbachovian”. was 
causing a good deal of fear 
among bureaucrats. 

It was also suggested by a 
Western observer that Dr 
Najib was using the files he 
had amassed as brad of Khad, 
the secret police, to silence 
opposition to his takeover 
from President KarmaL 

The campaign was a theme 
of the Politburo meeting of the 
ruling People's Democratic 
Party on May 8. It has 
surfaced again in Dr Najib’s 
addresses on his “meet hear 
and instruct the people drive". 

The publicity that his tour 
received in the Afghan media 
last week, as he met a border 
tribal assembly or a gathering 
of armed political commis- 
sars. reinforces the impression 
that he is heading, m the 
words of one diplomat. “a 
one-man triumvirate”. 

The other two triumvirs. 
President KarmaL whom. Dr 
Najib replaced as party secre- 
tary. and Mr Sultan Ali 
Kishtmand, the Prime Minis- 
ter, have registered almost no 
presence in the media for 
three weeks. . 

Meanwhile, the campaign 
to close the border to guerril- 
las from Pakistan continues 
with unusual ferocity around 
the city, of Khost An Afghan 
military source described heli- 
copter loads of casualties be- 
ing brought back to Kabul,

Rahim Bhttiya, a village 
trader; was looking for bis' 
three-year-old son as divers 
brought in a fresh . load of 
bodies from the ferry which 
sank in a storm on the River 
Meg boa to Bangladesh. 

Officials believe that about 
400 of the estimated 600 on 
board were drowned in the 
second serious ferry disaster 
in five weeks. The over-crowd- 
ed boat was caught in the 
i storm on its way to Dhaka 
from the southern coastal 
island of Bhola. 

Mr Bhuiya scrambled to see 
the bodies but officials quickly 
covered tbe pQe with a white 
doth. The corpses had become 
too bloated to be recoil ized. 

Yesterday's clear bine sky 
over the southern Bangladesh 
township, about 85 miles from 
Dhaka, belied the tragedy at 
the weekend. But the piles of 
bodies and the sunken ferry 
were poignant reminders of 
Sunday night. 

When I reached the town by 
speed boat, hundreds of curi- 
ous villagers had fined the 
bank of the river. 

With them mingled survi- 
vors like Mr Bhoiya. More 
than ISO bodies had to be 
handed over to relatives, but 
many were unclaimed and will 
be given a mass buriaL 

"We cannot keep these 
bodies any longer otherwise 
the whole area will be contami- 
nated with the stench,” Mr 
Saleh Hasan, a local magis- 
trate who was helping the 
rescue operation, said. 

President Ershad flew to the

township in a helicopter on 
Monday. "Give them a decent 
buriaL” he ordered. "That's 
the only thing we can do now.” 

In April, another double- 
decker ferry carrying about 
500 passengers went down 
about 25 miles from Dhaka. 
About 200 people are believed 
to have died. 

The frequency of the disas- 
ters has embarrassed the Gov- 

ernment. General Ershad has 
ordered the suspension of the 
use of double-decker ferries 
until qualified naval engineers 
have checked for design flaws. 

"It is sickening the way they 
load these ferries,” General 
Ershad said as he called for 
tough measures against those 
who break the rules. 

But for Mr Bhtnya and his 
son, it is already too late. 

Tamils blast bridges 

Colombo — Tamil guerrillas 
destroyed two small bridges in 
the J3JTna district to disrupt 
supplies, Sri Lankan security 
sources said yesterday (Vijiiha 
Yapa writes). 

The army camp established 
at Kayts last week is not 

affecied. since supplies can be 
flown in. 

The Ministry of National 
Security said three guerrillas 
were shot dead on Sunday in 
Amparai district of the East- 
ern Province when they tried 
to fire at police. 

July date 
for poll 

From David Watts 

The Japanese Cabinet de- 
cided yesterday to convene an 
extraordinary Diet session 
next Monday to clear the way 
for general elections in July. 
The session is expected to be 
dissolved almost immediate- 
ly. despite opposition boycott 
threats, allowing the Govern- 
ment to hold elections in both 
houses on July 6. 

tipper house elections were 
already due this summer and 
the Government hopes to 
benefit from a higher turn-out 
by having both polls on the 
same day. 

Mr Yasuhiro Nakasone, the 
Prime Minister, secured ap- 
proval for the poll after a last- 
minute bargaining session 
with the only leading member 
of the Liberal Democratic 
Party still holding out, Mr 
Kiichi Miyazawa. chairman of 
the party's executive board 
and a possible challenger to 
< Mr Nakasone for the party 
leadership this autumn. 

The former foreign minister 
j was persuaded to join the 
| consensus after Mr Nakasone 
promised to abandon his poli- 
cy of holding down expendi-

ernment money to reflate the 
economy this autumn —

W a coast a retired pensioner sets 
If off on his bicycle every morning 

with a saddle-bag full of leaflets 
.and campaigning material. He 
■ knocks on doors, calls at offices, 
drops in on local church groups. 
What he is peddling is informa- 
tion: about Amnesty Interna- 
tional. the human rights organization which 
this today celebraies its 25Ui anniversary: 
about its campaigns on torture and political 
killings: and about all the prisoners held 
around the world indefinitely and without 
charge or trial. His degree of dedication may 
appear impressive, but it is not unique: all 
over the world — AI has members in over 1 50 
countries — other men on other bicycles are 
doing the same. 

Often they come home disappointed. Con- 
cern for the misfortunes of others, particularly 
people incarcerated in countries far away, is a 
hand thing to peddle. But they have other 
activities to keep their morale high. The AI 
group in Littlehampton has recently merged 
with the one in Worthing. Together, the 
supporters number some SO people, of whom 
25 are hard-working. They are mostly elderly 
but extraordinarily keen. Their adopted 
prisoner is a Syrian. "and the group has just em- 
barked on a 100-day letter campaign, inundat- 
ing the Syrian government with daily protest. 
The last six years have seen five of their 
adopted prisoners released. This is the most 
heartening result of all. 

And yet Amnesty International's influence 
on the world's continual violation of basic

human rights isim possible to assess. Cause 
and effect cannot be measured. Littlehampton 
and Worthing have been lucky: most adopted 
prisoners stay in prison. 

Al's birth — out of an article in The Observer 
by a British lawyer called Peter Benenson 
calling the world's attention to the “forgotten 
prisoners" — is well known. After that, in rapid 
jumps, the organization grew. A budget of just 
over £7.000 in 1962 has become one of £6.4 
million today, with 500.000 members working 
on behalf of some 4.500 prisoners. In the last 
couple of years. AI has been touching new 
ground: it' has moved into Third World 
countries, and its groups are now spreading 
steadily across Latin America, the Middle East 
and Africa. To its many other activities has 
been added a network for dealing quickly with 
unexpected occurrences, like sudden short 
detentions, so that prisoners in countries like 
South Africa, where repeated spells of brief 
detention have become routine, can be helped 

As the organization has spread, so its scope 
and interests have widened. To the adoption 
of prisoners and their allocation to groups for 
special attention has been added world-wide 
campaigning on most of the major human 
rights issues of the day. while repeated 
missions to countries have formed the basis 
for detailed and respected reports, receiving 
wide publicity. How much AI can be credited 
with the new protocols on torture and the 
death penally cannot be calculated: but its 
repeated campaigning against torture is widely 
agreed to be among its finest work. 

Like any group of its kind. AI has had its in- 
ternal problems — though it is remarkable for 
hav ing had only two secretary generals — and 
continues to have its critics. Other human 
rights organizations are irritated by its 
exclusiveness and its refusal to join group

satisfied. a little smug. 

But even critics say that this fault is trivial 
compared with the extreme competence and 
dedication of the people who work for 
Amnesty - some 500 staff, 200 of them at the 
International Secretariat in London, with 
many highly qualified people heading research 
departments, paid a pale shadow of what they 
would earn elsewhere — and the fact that, more 
than any other organization of its kind, it has 
made people think. Even the most casual 
newspaper reader today cannot foil to know 
that torture has become systematic in at least 
60 countries, or that children are 
''disappearing" in the highlands of Peru: and 
the human rights records of different countries 
and different political parties have become as 
significant as their economic performance and 
their domestic policies. As the director of 
another human rights group puts it. Amnesty 
has managed to “personalize human disaster" 
Torture, endless solitary confinement and

Jamal Benomar 
was a 19-year- 
old student in 
sociology at Ra- 
bat University 
■when, at mid- 
night on Janu- 
ary 9. 1976. 
eight secret ser- 
vice men broke into his house 
and cartedhim and his books 
away to a nearby detention 
centre. The sociology books 
and papers, bundled into 
boxes, were useful proof later 
that Jamal Benomar was a 
dangerous subversive. 

He was, in feet, a member of 
En Avam. a banned group, 
mainly consisting of teachers 
and students, who had come 
together in 1970 to protest 
against political repression in 
Morocco and to petition for 
better education and health 
facilities as well as for free 
elections. Its magazine, Ilol 
A mam, argued strongly 
against the war in the western 
Sahara, saying that the King 
would do better to negotiate a 
settlement with the Polissario. 
They knew that this would 
irritate the government 

The story of what happened 
to Jamal Benomar is depress- 
ingly familiar, the fate of 
many who oppose an oppres- 
sive- regime: the outcome, 
however, is a happy one; and. 
better than many in his posi- 
tion, he bas a clear idea of 
what Amnesty International 
was able to do for him. 

Jamal spent the first four 
days of his captivity blindfold- 
ed' handcuff»l and continual- 
ly tortured by men who drank 
whisky as they tied him 
hanging from a bar between 
two desks, his head plunged in 
a bucket of excrement From 
Rabat be was moved to Tan- 
giers. There was no bed and no 
blankets in his cell, and he 
wore only the jeans in which 
he had been arrested. It was 
mid-wimer. Food was one loaf 
of bread a day. There were no 
visits, no letters. 

Still blindfolded and hand- 
cuffed. be was moved on to 
Casablanca, to the notorious 
Derb Moulay Cherif detention 
centre. Part of the torture 
consisted of keeping the pris- 
oners permanently awake. He 
was put in a small cell with 
four others, but they were 
threatened with torture if they 
spoke to one another. He 
could hear the screams of new 
arrivals in neighbouring cells. 

It was now that what had 
seemed a future without hope 
abruptly altered Jamal was 
transferred to a civilian prison 
in Casablanca, where he was 
one of 1 30 political prisoners. 
Informed that they’ would 
receive no trial, the prisoners 
agreed to hunger strike. The 
King of Morocco was on a 
visit zo France at the time. 
News of the strike spread 
Seventeen days later, a date 
was set for the trial. 

By now. Amnesty Interna- 
tional was aware of what was 
happening. They' Had observ- 
ers at the trial — the prisoners 
were charged with attempting 

to overthrow the monarchy 
and setting up an iliegz 
organization. Nothing could 
be done to ensure an unbiased 
hearing or to reduce the 
sentences (10 years for Jamal, 
up to 30 for others, with five 
sentenced to life imprison- 
ment), but a campaign was 
building up across the world 
to agitate on the prisoners' 
behalf. . 

Jamal was adopted as a 
prisoner of conscience by the 
Stockholm Amnesty group. 
Letters flowed in. The gover- 
nor began to treat him raiher 
more cautiously, especially 
after a phone call came 
through late one night from 
Sweden. What seemed to 
amaze the governor was the 
foci that anyone cared about 
an unknown young man in a 
Moroccan jail. It was unnerv- 
ing to be reminded that, if 
anything happened to him, the 
world would know. Jamal was 
no less bewildered but pro- 
foundly heartened. 

Always among 
the first to 
be arrested 

Conditions did not im- 
prove instantly. Prisoners 
were split into groups and 
moved to different jails, to 
prevent collusion. Attacks by 
prison guards injured several 
of them, and the rights to 
study, to receive medical care 
and to get out of solitary 
confinement were only won 
after a 45-day hunger strike, 
on the fortieth day of which a 
young woman teacher died . 

During all this time. AI and 
other human rights organiza- 
tions in Europe were keeping 
up a continual crusade of 
protest Though the rats, the 
inadequate food and the ap- 
palling medical facilities con- 
tinued. small concessions, 
one after the other, were won: 
the right to talk, to receive 
visits, to study. “Everything 
helped" he says, “but Am- 
nesty was at ihe front. Some- 
thing had happened and they 
became careful how they 
treated us." 

On November 23. 1983. 
largely through the interven- 
tion of a friendly professor of 
sociology'. Jamal was re- 
leased He had been in captiv- 
ity for nearly eight years. He 
returned to his home town in 
the north. It took him only a 
few months to realize that 
Morocco was no longer a safe 
place for him to live. At every 
demonstration, every act of 
opposition, he was among the 
first to be arrested 

A year later, having been 
refused a passport, he man- 
aged to escape, again with 
Amnesty's help, and reached 
Britain, where he has been 
granted political asylum. 
Two weeks after arriving, he 
married Joyce Edling. a 
member of the AI group in 
Stockholm who” had visited 
him in prison. Knowing only 
of James Joyce. Jamal had 
long imagined her to be a 
man. ‘ 

The almost, intolerable pressures that head teachers now 
face will be high on the agenda at their annual conference 


mil recently, a head 
teacher had a fairly 
straightforward job. 
He — ir was iareJy she — may 
not have worn a gown and 
cracked a whip but he was 
respected and obeyed by 
teacher and pupil alike. Im- 
mune from parental moans 
and local authority edicts, he 
could nm his school as he 
wished with minimum paper- 
work and maximum 

That is no longer the; case. 
The pressures have grown 
immeasurably as society has 
demanded more of schools, 
and teachers have grown in- 
creasingly disenchanted with 
their lot The job of the 
average head bas changed 
beyond all recognition in the 
past 15 years. He Is now 
accountable to everyone and 
his priority is the “client" —

the school governors about 

At the end of his working 
day he may have to take home 
more and more paperwork in 
order to catch up with form- 
filling. reports to governors 
and letters to parents. 

Few head teachers would 
say the job was. not extremely 
stressful some of the time. As 
their unions are fond of 
pointing out. this has led to 
significant numbers develop- 
ing medical problems or tak- 
ing early retirement. Local 
education authorities are find- 
ing it difficult to recruit heads 


• For John Rex, aged 60 
(salary £17,000 a year), head of 
the 600-pupil Halton Middle 
School in Leeds, the worst 
pressures are those imposed 
by local politicians.. He has 
decided to retire early because 
be has had enough. 

“I felt when I first became a 
head that I was master of my 
own ship and, within reason, 
could act fairly Independently. 
Today I feel that a head is 
subject to ail sorts iff pr es s u res 
from other people." 

The job has been made 
increasingly stressful by die 
teachers' action, with heads 
caught between their disen- 
chanted staff and angry par- 
ents. “I think most heads 
regard' their school as their 
own, and anything which dis- 
rupts is taken personally. “I 




as the. job. Becomes more 
complicated and the pressures 
more evident. 

David Han. general secre- 
tary of the National Associa- 
tion of Head Teachers, whose 
union's annual conference be- 
gins in Candiff today. says that 
beads have been expected for 
loo long to accept every new 

educational initiative. They 
have bad to absorb every new 
pressure uncomplainingly and 
irrespective of resources or 
whether they have the cooper- 
ation of staff. 

“They are saying they bare 
had enough. If teachers are 
demanding protection 
through a tighter contract, 
then we are entitled to 'that 
too. We demand proper 
resourcing and support for ihe 
work we an: expected to do. 

“I am sick and tired of 
hearing that heads are ac- 
countable to every Tom. Dick 
and Harry. We have got to 
have a a contract defined tn 
terms of line' management 
through the govern ing body to 
the local education authority. ' 
and we should stop expecting 
heads to be accountable to 
everybody, including society 
at large". 

A nd he believes 'that 
what will come out of 
the conference is .‘“an 
enormous cry from the heart 
with heads saying the system; 
is going downhill rapidly. -We 
can't be expected to stick our 
fingers . in the dyke any 

One of -the new . pressures 
cited by a number of heads 
recently is political interfer- 
ence by the education author- 
ity. Many headsare no longer 
able to decide on issues such 
as discipline in areas where 
corporal punishment bas been 
abolished or. on whether the 
pupils should wear school 
uniform . or. jewellery,’ •

Middle School in Leeds, talks

the spending of money donat- 
ed by parents. Such money 
may spent on books or 
equipment, the basic require- 
ments of . the school. The 
. rationale behind this, be sug- 
gests. was presumably that the 
politicians felt it ivas wrong 
for some schools to benefit 
from munificent parents more 
than others. 

Many heads speak with 
feeling about the teachers' pay 
dispute. Caught between par- 
ents and staff, they had in- 
creasingly found themselves 
in an exposed and lonely 
position “We have been try ing 
to introduce open and partici- 
pative dans ion- making, and 
the industrial action has de- 
stroyed that without putting 
anything in- its place", said 
Michael Duffy, head of King 
Edward VI comprehensive 
school in Morpeth. 

The teachers' action meant 
that some heads had to do 
dinner duty virtually unaided. 
It has made it more difficult to 
get methodical work from 
students, and. according to 
Michael Maria nd. head of 
North Westminster School in 
London, it has replaced the 
school's organizational struc- 
ture with one created by the 
National Union of Teachers.

A si 


The announcement 
yesterday that 
Marilyn Butler will 
be the first woman 
Regius professor 
gives a boost to 
academic equality. 
Sally Brompton probes 
a hidden intellect 

The letter confirming Marilyn 
Butler's new job came from Downing 
Street on behalf of the Prime Minister 
and with the Queen's approval. Being 
appointed to one of academia's hand- 
ful of Regius chairs is not something 
that is taken lightly. And. although no 
longer funded by the Crown, such 
professorships axe filled with the 
utmost care by ihe Prime Minister's 
own appointments secretary after 
weeks of discreet discussions with 
experts in the field. 

As King Edward VT1 Professor of 
English Literature at Cambridge Uni- 
versity — the first woman to hold a 
Regius professorship— Marilyn Butler 
will be taking on not merely the most 
prestigious of Britain's university 
faculties but also, traditionally, the 
most controversial. For years. 
Cambridge's English faculty has been 
a hotbed of internal contention, 
culminating in the well publicised 
resignation of ihe.professor before last. 
Marilyn Butler views it all with a 
certain amount of glee. “I think it’s 
true that because Cambridge has this 
history it has also been the place from 
which interesting discussions have 
emanated", she says, picking her 
;word5 carefully. "It certainly has a 
history of liveliness". She is 49. a 
charming, eloquent woman who hide 
her intellect beneath a seemingly mild 
manner. Her husband, the 61-year-old 
political media pundit David Butler, 
who is a senior research fellow at 
Oxford, describes her as a workaholic 
and marvels at the fact that she 
produced three sons and a thesis 
during their first /our years of mar- 

The thesis happened to be on one of 
the members of his own highly 
academic family (Rab Butler was his 
second cousin). His wife had originally 
intended to write one on Jane Austen 
“because 1 had a very strong feelingin 
my mind that I wanted to. Then, one 
evening at dinner. David just mid

, . Milton Keynes - 

"why don’t you write a thesis on my ■ 
great aunt because she's got all these 
letters". The great aunt turned out to 
be Irish author Maria Edgeworth and 
"all these letters" amounted to 4.000,. 
many in barely-legible. script 
.:Her two books. about, women au- . 
thors were written before the onset of 
feminine criticism and she admits that 
she would not have written them, in 
quite the same way if she had done so 
later. "Now I’m so deeply interested 
tin romantic poetry that I am primari- 
ly writing hi. that field." She and 
another woman don at Oxford recent- 
ly instigated an optional third year 
paper on women's writing with the 
result that there are now “several 
people leaching it." • 

it was only after her marriage that 
Marilyn Butler decided to become a 
scholar. She was a BBC Radio current 
affairs producer — albeit one with a 
firsi-class honours degree in English 
language and literature from Oxford — 
when she married David, an Oxford 
don. in 1 962. "It seemed better for me 
.lo retool and start up atran academic", 
she recalls. “Now we have come the 
fuH circle". Her new appointment 
means that she will have to find a 
second home in Cambridge while her

husband remains at their book-filled 
semi-detached house in Oxford, 
spending only their weekends and 
vacations together. “There's going to 
be a lot of driving through MHton 
Keynes", say? Marilyn. 

It took her several weeks of sleepless 
nights and a considerable amount of 
soul-searching before she decided to 
accept the . challenge and the chair. 
Besides the inevitable separation (her 
husband expects to remain in Oxford 
until his retirement in 1992) ft meant 
abandoning their immediate plans to 
lecture at the University of Virginia in 
America. “David's been extremely 
nice about it but it's obviously going to 
mean a lot of trouble for him. One of 
the . attractions of going to America 
was that we would be doing something 
in tbe same place, so he's sacrificing a • 
great deal in a sense". 

She will be sad to leave Oxford, 
where she is lecturer in I9th century 
English literatureand a senior research 
fellow at St Hugh’s, although the 
Cambridge faculty is regarded as the 
pinnacle in the field. Ironically, two of 
her sons are still at Cambridge where 
they fled, according to their mother, to 
get away from home. They have 
resigned themselves to the tact that 
"home" is about to follow them there. 

As far as the actual job is concerned, 
Marilyn Butler is still very much in the 
dark. Such is the secrecy surrounding 
her appointment — which was official- . 
ly announced in the House of Com- 
mons yesterday morning - that she 
has still to talk to heT future employ- 
ers, “The trouble with this particular 
chair is that you don't know what else 
is expected of you until you get there. I 
think professors are there primarily to 
lecture, leach and write but obviously 

if I am asked to administer or be 
chairman of companies 1 shall do it. 
although 1 am not chairman of 
anything at the moment". 

Her. particular literary field is 
romanticism and she is working on a 
massive book on Poets and Myths 
which will be her sixth published 
work. In the past year, much of her 
teaching at Oxford has been on 
women-’s writing. Her own book on 
Jane Austen was published in 1975. 
The only daughter of a former miner 
who became Reel Street's first indus- 
trial correspondent, the late Sir Trevor 
Evans, she spent much of her wartime 
childhood “idvllically happy in the 
picturesque fishing village of New 
Quay on the west coast of Wales upon 
which Dylan Thomas is thought to 
have modelled Under Milk Wood. “I 
attended a Welsh-speaking school and 
always thought of myself as very 
Welsh". When the war ended she 
returned with her family to Kingston- 
on-Thames in Surrey. . 

She prefers 
to work in 
an armchair 

Her Welsh background is still in 
evidence. Her mother's first reaction 
on learning of her new apointment was 
simply- “Oh, your father would have 
liked ’to hear this." Says Marilyn: 
“Being Welsh he was tremendously 
into academia". 

She is enormously flattered to have 
been chosen, “since I've never worked 
at Cambridge and know hardly any- 
one there — it must have been purely 
on my reputation." She put down the

How defeatist of the abortion 
counsellor ("Abortion: merely 
tbe lesser agony". May 14) to 
believe abortion to be 
"necessary "! Such people go 
(o a lot of trouble trying to 
make abortion less traumatic, 
while surely they ought to be 
tackling the actual problems 
leading girls to the clinics in 
the first place: boyfriend pres- 
sure, family pressure, poverty, 
unemployment, poor 
housing . . . 

Of all tbe pregnancy coun- 
selling services around, it 
seems only Life really appreci- 
ates this! A lot of money could 
be channelled from the dinks 
towards solving these prob- 
lems. But because this is 
comparatively the “long way 
round", women's most basic 
rights (let alone children's) are 
being constantly undermined- 

A If the time we are told that 
abortion is necessary. The 
trauma so many women suffer 
is deliberately played down.

lack of women regius appointees to the 
fact that “There are not that many 
women contenders. As with women in 
other professions I think that women 
academics often don't get to the top. 
Also, because it's the sort of work that 
women can do part-time, there's 
probably a lot of -skidding around 
corners doing their best to keep going 
while they've still got children at pre- 
school. There have been really great 
women academics but it's significant 
that you can always remember them." 

At home, she and her husband share 
an office, a large comfortable room 
with desks faring eachother beside the 
window. Marilyn's is the cluttered one 
because she prefers working in the 
comfort of an armchair. “1 don't think 
we really compete", she says of her 
working relationship with David. 
"He’s a tremendously supportive hus- 
band. a natural spouse. But we have a 
different style, very different style, and 
he sometimes criticises me because I 
am not doing things the way he would 
do them and when he does that 1 think 
he's wrong. For example, he's tremen- 
dously good at ad-libbing, almost 
never using a script and can talk for an 
hour without notes. I lend to lecture 
with a script and he used to revile me 

They are also very different in , 
character. “David's practical. I'm not. 
although I can Hoover. I suppose. And 
he's very speedy and likes doing lots of 
things at the same time while I like 
settling down and working rather 
solidly at things. I'm the hedgehog 
because 1 concentrate on one big thing 
and David is the fox who rushes 
around with lots of different things. 
But i think we are like lots of couples

Information from travel 
agents, embassies or immuni- 
zation centres may go no 
further than satisfy ing regula- 
tions designed to protect 
countries from imported dis- 
ease, rather than individuals 
from infection. Today's trav- 
ellers may assume that ad- 
vances in medical technology 
at home have been matched 
abroad but- ex pens say.they 
would be wrong. 

Research has shown that 
almost half of all internation- 
al travellers experience some 
unpleasant effect on their 
health as a result of their trip, 
whether it be business or 
holiday. Last year. Britons 
took more than 20 million 
trips abroad. 

In an effort to reduce the 
risks, a team of 43 medical 
specialists has produced 
travellers’ Health, which 
closely examines what its 
editor. Dr Richard Dawood. 
of University College Hospi- 
tal. London, describes as “a 
neglected corner of 
medicine". Its index ranges 
from Abcess (dental) to 
Zovirax a drug treatment for 

A ccidents abroad are an 
underestimated haz- 
ard. and the most like- 
ly cause of death, according 
to Dr Richard FairhureL ihe 
chief medical officer of Europ 
Assistance in London. 
"Many people behave in a 
quite reckless, uncharacteris- 
tic manner while abroad”, he 
says, "exposing themselves to 
risks they would never dream 
of taking at home". 

This is because holiday- 
makers. having paid a lot of 
money, are determined to 
have a good time regardless 
of safety rules. Business trav- 
ellers may be under pressure 
to complete a deal at any cost 
and may resort to dangerous 
short cuts to achieve results. 

Every year in Britain about 
6.000 people are accidentally 

killed in their homes, and 
more than a million injured, 
by falls, misuse of electrical 
appliances, and domestic poi- 
soning. These dangers may 
also be lurking in a Spanish 

Also lurking in foreign 
fields are muggers, for whom 
tourists are prime targets. Yet 
people who won't walk 
through their own city centre 
for fear of attack are often 
happy to stroll through the 
more dangerous streets of 
New York. Miami, or 

M ore people are likely 
to be attacked by gut 
infections, however. 
Four out of every 10 interna- 
tional travellers suffer from 
diarrhoea abroad: 30 per cent 
of those w ho do are confined 
to bed. and another 40 per 
cent have to alter their travel 

Dr Michael Barer, a medi- 
cal microbiologist at the Lon- 
don School of Hygiene and 
Tropical Medicine, recom- 
mends great caution in eating 
and drinking abroad, even in 
countries where organisms 
that cause diarrhoea are un- 
common. More than 25.000 
gasiro-intestinal infections 
were officially reported in 
Britain in 1983. 

Shellfish, vegetables, sal- 
ads. fruit and rice can be 
particularly hazardous. Un- 
pastcurized milk - and ice- 
cream and yoghurt made 
from it - should always be 
avoided. Dr Barer says. Ice is 
only as safe as the water from 
which it is made, and even if 
a piped water supply is safe at 
its source, it may be contami- 
nated by the time it reaches 
the tap. Bottled or canned 
drinks with well-known 
brand names are safer. 

Diseases spread by insects 
include malaria, yellow fever, 
sleeping sickness and typhus. 
Travellers may contract ma- 
laria from mosquito bites in 
any of 105 countries: world- 
wide. between 200 and 300 
million people arc stricken by 
the disease every year. 

“It would not be inconceiv- 
able for a traveller to acquire 
fatal malaria from the bite of 
a single mosquito during a 

brief airport siopover in West 
Africa", cautions Dr Antho- 
ny Hall, consultant physician 
at the Hospital for Tropical 
Diseases. London. Visitors ro 
tropical Africa are at much 
greater risk than those head- 
ing for Latin America or 
south-east Asia, he says. 
Women's resistance to malar- 
ia is lowered during 

Drugs at present available 
don't prevent infection, but 
inhibit us spread, and they 
must continue to be taken 
after leaving a malarial area. 
Travellers should apply in- 
sect repellent to the face, 
arms and legs at least twice a 
day. keep an adequate supply 
ot tablets, be especially vigi- 
lant around dusk, and never 
scorn the offer of mosquito 
nets over the bed. Sexually 
transmitted disease (STD) 
has reached epidemic propor- 
tions in many countries, and 
the only sure way to avoid it 
is to resist sexual contact 
completely, says Dr John 
Naponick! an American offi- 
cial medical adviser in 

I n many Asian countries, 
up to 90 per cent of all 
such infections result 
from contact with prostitutes. 

"Tourists travel to seek 
adventure - and sex is cer- 
tainly pan of the attraction. 
Travellers separated from 
their families are all at partic- 
ular risk." The threat of Aids 
is minimal unless individuals 
indulge in sexual or drug- 
taking behaviour with those 
most likely to be infected. 

Last year, visitors from 
non-communist countries 
made an estimated 600 mil- 
lion trips abroad. The figure 
is expected to rise to 780 
million in the next ten years. 
'“Although the majority of 
health problems are invari- 
ably minor ones, the scale on 
which international travel is 
now taking place lends per- 
spective to the problem." the 
book's editor. Dr Dawood. 
points out. It's a warning 
worth packing with the sun- 
ian cream this summer.

To suggest however, that 
those of us who have already 
been educated in a public 
school sixth form — as I was at 
Rngby (and there are quite a 
number of us) — emerge Ill- 
equipped to take oar place in 
society- is quite ridiculous. 
Dame Mary VVamock would 
seem to be confusing lack of 
social integration with the 
support which girls who are in 
a minority naturally tend to 
give each other on public 

1 have no doubt that the 
boys whose classes we shared 
would not recognise the shy, 
retiring, sex-stereotyped wall- 
flowers described. Almost all 
of the female Rugbeians I have 
known were mature, confident 
girls, adding as much in terms 
of intellectual enrichment to 
the school as in social benefit. 

Maybe Maggie Drummond 
should meet some of the 
“victims" of an “all-male pub- 
lic schooling" which she as- 
cribes to Rugby. 1 can think of 
no other way to correct her 
second-hand impressions.

Hie 1977 Housing (Homeless Persons) 
Aci was passed, with all-party support, 
because Parliament recognized that the 
homeless were in acute social need. 
Local authorities were given a new legal 
duly: lo house those in "priority 
need" — principally the old, the sick, 
those with young families — who lacked 

Parliament was conscious of a danger. 
The duly it laid on local authorities 
might be used by people, seeking 
transfers from highrise blocks and other 
unpopular accommodation to some- 
thing better, to jump the queue. 

Parliament did not. therefore, include 
a definition of what constituted 
“accommodation" in the legislation. It 
seemed obvious that a family whose 
only shelter was not large enough to 
accommodate its members, or which 
did not include basic amenities for 
cooking, washing or eating, did not have 
accommodation within the meaning of 
the Act. It was therefore entitled to its 

For years this view was supported by 
the courts. In a case brought against 
Wyre Borough Council in 1982 all three 
judges in the Court of Appeal agreed 
that accommodation must be appro- 

priate to the needs of the family. 

But m the case of Puhlhofer v. 
Hillingdon Borough Council, decided 
earlier this year, the House of Lords 
overruled both the Court of Appeal and 
common sense. When a council decides 
whether a person or family with a place, 
of sorts, to sleep in, is homeless for the 
purposes of the Act, it turns out there, 
are no rules. The only guidance offered 
by the Lords to those local authorities 
which want to fulfil their minimum 
legal obligation was that "It would be a 
misuse of language to describe Diogenes 
as having occupied accommodation 
within the meaning of the Act". 

Diogenes lived in a barrel The 
accommodation with which the case 
was concerned was, admittedly, better 
than that; but for Britain in 1986 (and 
without a Mediterranean climate) not 
all that better. 

The case concerned a husband and 
wife who. with two young children, 
occupied a single room containing a 
double and a single bed, baby's cradle, 
dressing table, pram and sterilizing unit. 
The room was in a guest bouse which 
had no cooking facilities; its three 
bathrooms were shared by 36 people.

Nicholas Bethell on the ‘last chance’ option that Pretoria spurns 

All South Africa waits Tor Nelson 
Mandela. He is the stuff of which 
myths are made. Blacks revere 
him as the messiah who will 
deliver them from humiliation. 
Whiles cringe from him as from 
the avenging angel who one day 
will chastise them for their sins. It 
needs a sharp wrench of the 
mind's eye for any South African 
to see him as anything else. 

Yet there are some now who 
perceive a third role for Mandela: 
that of statesman and diplomat, 
the only man who could perhaps 
reconcile South Africa's commu- 
nities and avoid civil war. The 
idea is based on what he has said 
these past 1 8 months in Brigadier 
F.C. Munro's office in Pollsmoor 
prison. Cape Town, to the few 
outsiders who have been allowed* 
to discuss politics with him. These 
conversations reveal a distinction 
between Mandela's own views and 
the fiery rhetoric of most other 
leaders of the African National 

The ANCs present position is 
that it will negotiate with the 
government only about the im- 
mediate transfer of power to the 
black majority, the alternative 
being full-scale civil war. The 
ANC president. Oliver Tambo, 
told MPs in London last October 
that “many will die, perhaps many 
thousands", last September, acc- 
ording to Radio Lusaka, he ruled 
out a gradual transfer of power 
and predicted a bloodbath. 

Mandela speaks far more gently. 
In January he told an American 
lawyer, Samuel Dash: “Unlike 
white people anywhere else in 
Africa, whites in South Africa 
belong here. This is their home; we 
want them to live here with us and 
share power with us." 

After majority rule, he added, 
he would not press for an un- 
controlled movement of blacks 
into Johannesburg and other big 
cities. Integration in living areas 
would come after an expansion of 
job opportunities for blacks and 
“with dignity”. 

This idea of black-white power- 
sharing is hardly consistent with 
the ANCs policy of one man, one 
vote, in a unitary stale brought 
about by “the flames of rev- 
olution". It seems closer to the 
plan proposed by the Progressive 
Federal Party (the main par- 
liamentary opposition) and by 
Chief Buihelezi’s Inkatha Move- 
ment: a national convention of the 
races that will draw up a federal 
constitution for protection of the was precisely this 
national convention, one recalls, 
that was the ANCs original 
demand in March 1961. just 
before the armed struggle began 
and Mandela was arrested. 

The attitude towards Chief 
Buthelezi is another important 
distinction. The ANC portrays the 
Zulu leader as little better than a 
quisling. Last September its Free- 
dom Radio in Addis Ababa called 
him the “Bantustan puppet” who 
“served the objectives and in- 
terests of the Boiha regime”. 

Mandela thinks differently. On 
May 5 he told Mrs Helen Suzman 
and her PFP colleague Tiaan van 
der Merwe that all groups across 
the political spectrum, including 
Buihelezi's Inkatha. should be 

Nelson Mandela has declared

calling It a tragic accident 

Give Mandela 
the chance

involved in negotiations for a new 
South Africa. 

Die two black leaders ex- 
changed correspondence and 
seemed on good terms. In spite of 
his quarrel with the ANC Chief 
Buthelezi has persistently called 
for Mandela's unconditional re- 
lease: six months ago he inter- 
vened directly with President 
Botha when there were worries 
about Mandela's health. 

Mandela's views on the armed 
struggle bear equally careful 
examination. In early 1985 he 
said: “We are forced to continue, 
though within certain limits. We 
go for hard targets only — military 
installations and the symbols of 
apartheid. Civilians must not be 
touched. This is why I deeply 
regret what happened in Pretoria 
on May 23. 1 983. A bomb went off 
and more than a dozen civilians 
were killed. Something must have 
gone wrong with the timing. It was 
a tragic accident . . . We aim for 
buildings and property. It may be 
that someone gets killed in the 
fight, in the heaL of battle, but we 
do not believe in assassination. I 
would justify this only in the case 
of an informer who was a danger 
to our lives." 

This is not what appears in the 
ANCs statements, or for that 
matter in Mrs Winnie Mandela's 
speeches. Last August 5, Freedom 
Radio announced that “the whole 
country must go up in flames". A 
month later it added: “We have 
got to take the battle right into (the 
whites') homes, into their kitchens 
and bedrooms. Police and soldiers 
must be killed even when they are 
in their homes.” 

The most important nuance is 
over the truce which the 
Commonwealth “eminent 
persons" have been trying to 
negotiate these past months. The 

idea was. I think, first suggested by 
Mandela himself In January 1985 
he said: “The armed struggle was 
forced on us by the government 
And if they want us to give it up 
now, the ball is in their court 
They must legalize us, treat us like 
a political party and negotiate with 
us . . .Ofcourse.ifthereweretobe 
talks along these lines, we in the 
ANC would declare a truce.” 

Recently he has repeated this 
proposal, both to the Common- 
wealth group and to Mrs Suzman, 
his only added condition being the 
release of all political prisoners. 

Would the ANC accept such an 
offer? We do not know what has 
happened behind the scenes, but 
from what its leaders said in 
London last October the answer 
seems doubtful. 

The ANC information director. 
Thabo Mbeki. said then that it was 
neither essential nor normal for a 
truce to be declared in a liberation 
struggle simply because negotia- 
tions had begun. This had not 
been the case in Vietnam or 
Rhodesia. If there were to be a 
truce, both sides would have to 
end their violence. And it was 
hard to see how the government 
could do so while the apartheid 
system remained in force. 

So why does Mandela put 
forward these, in ANC terms, 
eccentric views? Obviously not 
through fear of reprisal or hope of 
favour from the government. I can 
only imagine that he has made a 
personal decision, bearing in mind 
his own unique status and predica- 
ment.' to advance a realistic plan 
for the removal of apartheid, one 
that South Africans as a whole 
might conceivably accept, rather 
than the maximalist demands of 
the Lusaka exiles, which remain 
the ANCs official negotiating 

position. Such a tactic he would 
not see as inconsistent with his 
position as the ANCs leader. 

Pretoria does not make it easy 
for him to build up any such 
constructive role. His treatment 
today is good in normal prison 
terms, but quite inadequate for 
someone who. as the government 
makes plain, is detained for 
reasons of public policy rather 
than of punishment or rehabilita- 
tion. He is still kept virtually 
incommunicado and his letters are 
censored. I remember one that 
looked' as if it had been attacked 
by moths, another as ifit had been 
through a shredder.One letter that 
he wrote to me at the end of last 
year has still not arrived. Friends 
apply to send him books and other 
small presents that would teach 
him about life outside, but per- 
mission is usually refused. 

These aspects of his treatment, 
it seems, are handled by the 
security authorities, not the min- 
ister responsible for prisons. And 
the former have no interest in 
preparing him for life, let alone 1 
leadership, in the outside world. - 

Instead they do their utmost to 
associate him with the worst 
violence in the townships. Last 
August he was tricked into receiv- 
ing two journalists from the Rev 
Sun Myung Moon's Washington 
Times, who described him as “the 
South African terrorist and

the deputy information minister, 
Louis NeL used Mandela's re- 
marks about the armed struggle 
quoted above to argue that he 
remained committed to violence 
and should therefore stay in jail. 

Mrs Suzman sees him as “our* 
last hope”, Tiaan van der Merwe 
as “a man who must inevitably 
play an enormous role in creating 
a new South Africa”. Warren 
Hastings might have said that, 
when one considers what he has 
endured, one is amazed by 
Mandela's moderation. But the 
government, instead of embracing 
him as a chance for peace, keeps 
him isolated, so making ever more 
likely the bloodbath that his less 
statesmanlike friends foresee:

modation" for a family with an income 
of £78 per week. The Homeless Persons 
Act, it decided, imposed no duty on 
Hillingdon Council to find them some- 
thing better suited to their needs. 

This was clearly a perversion of 
Parliament's intention and gives scope 
to all local authorities who wish to 
evade their responsibilities. 

This government has often taken 
rapid legislative action to assert its 
authority when the courts have declared 
its actions illegal. That is its constitu- 
tional -right: Parliament, even when 
many of us think it is wrong, must rule. 

The Homeless Persons Act, however, 
was passed because all parties in 
Parliament recognized the need for it. 
The courts have now largely destroyed 
it. Will the government reassert the 
authority of Parliament? If 'not will 
Parliament itself support a Private 
Members Bill to do so?

Mocoron, Honduras 
Most people would say that 
Mocoron was just about the end of 
the earth, but not Charlie Sang. 
There arc strange things happen- 
ing here w hich tell a seasoned old 
entrepreneur like Charlie that he 
could soon be on to something 
really big. 

When he washed up in 
Mocoron in 1982 as a refugee from 
Nicaragua with only 300 lempiras 
in his pocket the place had not 
much going for iu A refugee-filled 
village of palm-thatched Indian 
huts on stills in the middle of a 

pine-scattered tropical plain, a 
lonely battalion of the Honduran 

lonely battalion of the Honduran 
infantry and no roads lo any- 
where. The only way out. for those 
who could afford iu was an 
occasional flight to Tegucicalpa, 
or by dug-out canoe down the 
river to the coast. 

Not much of a scene for one 
who had been top man in Puerto 
Cabezas. the sultry’ port a few 
days' walk away away on 
Nicaragua's Atlantic coast. The 
son of a Chinese sailor and a 
Miskito Indian, Charlie had pre- 
sided over what he calls the high 
life of Puerto Cabezas. first as its 

bank manager, then in the mahog- 
any business and finally running 
his own private bus service. 

His greatest moment was in 
1961 when the town was the 
launching pad for the abortive Bay 
of Pigs invasion of Cuba: being its 
president, he gave the visiting 
.American officers the freedom of 
the Puerto Cabezas Social Club. 

But the life of a Yankee-loving 
capitalist was bound to change 
dramatically when the Marxist 
Sandinisia regime came to 
power.Finding a store of dynamite 
in his house — kept. Charlie says, 
for fishing — they clapped him in 
jail for six months. 

After his release his wife Eunice 
kept begging him to leave, but 
Charlie hung on. He finally made 
up his mind when the Sandinisias 
threatened him with another ten 
years in prison unless his son. 
Giariito. joined the army. But 
friends say the last straw was when 
they took away his four German 
shepherd dogs, saying they ate 
more meat in a week than many 
Puerto Cabezans did in a year. 
Mocoron. Charlie soon realized, 
had more to it than met the eye. So 
he borrowed $20,000 from a 

friend, set up a hostelry and has 
never looked back. 

<~oid beer on his palm-thatched 
veranda was very welcome re- 
cently to the dozens of American 
army engineers and soldiers build- 
ing the huge military airstrip 
pointing towards the Nicaraguan 
border 15 miles away. His tasty 
Chinese dishes make’s pleasant 
change for the group of tough 
American Green Berets training 
Honduran soldiers in the latest 
jungle warfare skills.

only by coincidence happen to

Even* day Charlie has a squad 
of conee-coloured Miskito girls

the wood-fired ovens for the 
American and Honduran soldiers. 
They will be even busier soon 
when thousands of troops arrive

beer. He also acts as local agent for 
the Honduran domestic airline. 

More foreign money is being 
poured into the area than ever 
before, and a lot of it is rubbing off 
on Charlie. He now employs 1 1 
people, has another German shep- 
herd dog and his house on stilts, 
with its green and white painted 
banisters, is by far the smartest in 
Mocoron. He has already , paid 
back more than half his loan. 

“I live better now than I ever 
did before", he said. “1 never want 
to move again. This is a most 
cosmopolitan place.”

the Americans arc preparing to

As he settles into his new job as 
Education Secretary. Kenneth 
Baker should have the eouragp 
and magnanimity to stay his hand. 
He has a breezy way of making 
every oone feel comfortable. He 
should use it for all it’s worth for 
the next few months and not do 

much else, at least in public. 

It will of course be verydifilcufL 
The press will be badgering him to 
make major policy statements 
Conservative backbenchers will 
be pressing their nostrums on him; 
the advocates of Crown schools 
and educational credit schemes 
(the rechrisiened vouchers) will be 
trying to get their papers on to 
Cabinet agendas. And — most 
powerful of all — Mrs Thatcher 
will demand something punchy to 
put in the election manifesto. 

We Want An Initiative, they will 
all cry. -.And that is what Baker 
must resist Another initiative 
would assuredly be education's 
coup de grace. The secondary 
schools are already drowning man 
alphabet soup of initatives: GCSE, 

name a few. 

And these are only what they 
have coming at them from central 
government. There are plenty of 
local authority initiatives as well; 
and with several councils having 
changed hands, the arrival of keen 
new education committee chair- 
men will mean even more: 

But surely Baker must do 
something about the terrible mess 
education is in, somebody will 
say. Certainly be has to see that 
people sop regarding education as 
being in a mess. Three things have 
to happen: more resources will 
have to be found from the 
Treasury, the teachers' pay dispute 
will have to be settled on terms 
that ordinary teachers are rel- 
atively happy with, and parents 
must again see schools as busy, 
happy, effective places. 

The first of these is probably 
happening under electoral pres- 
sure in any case, and Baker win 
presumably be busying himself 
behind the scenes to make sure it 
does. There has already been some 

Teachers’ morale, will rise if 
teachere get tire credit. 

Indeed it would be very clever 
of Baker to orchestrate a campaign 
publicizing teaching successes: 
television programmes about 
schools that have improved their 
image, a breakthrough in the 
teaching of maths, a national 
school choir contest .. ..People 
are getting bored with educational 
doom and gloom. . 

None of this should imply that 
there is nothing wrong with the 
education system . that money 
cannot pni rjghL Thai has never 
been true. But the mistake the 
Conservatives have made is to 
throw all the- blame on the 
teachers and cast themselves in 
the role of scourge and saviour. 

Teachers themselves know per- 
fecily well there are serious foil mgs 
in the system. Whenever they are 
polled they are astonishingly frank 
about their own and. their 
colleagues' performance. But they 
are extraordinarily seusitivtabow 
being pilloried as a group, and no 
Education Secretary will be al- 
lowed to get away with it. 

Indeed I doubt whether Baker 
win be allowed to gci away with 
anything at alL That faction 
within the Labour Party and the 
teachers' unions that wants to 
keep educatonal discontent sim- 
mering until the next election wilt 
be. eager to pounce on any new 
idea and discredit iL 

None of this is of course the 
advice I would offer to an incom- 
ing Education Secretary of a 
different political pursuasion. 
Coming in on a new electoral 
platform, with promises of expan- 
sion, exciting new vistas — that . is 
an entirely different proposition. 

I anr assuming that Baker will 
not be able to perform a complete 
transformation of Conservative 

policy. He is not magician enough, 
one assumes, to reawaken Mrs 

. Thatcher's enthusiasm for nursery 
education, or persuade the Cabi- 
net to launch a major expansion of 

“give" on higher education. 

The second is in the hands of 

hitter education. 

■ So the best he can hope for is not 
very much. It is that in one or two 
years' time, when the election 
arrives, the political journalists, 
propping up a bar in Westminster, 
will say to each other, “Funny how 
we aU thought education was 
going to be the big issue this time: 
somehow h seems to have taken a 
back seat. Mind you. Baker hasn't 
made much of a mark 

That is why I used the word 
“magnanimity” at the beginning 
of this article. The strategy I. have 
outlined is the one that 1 believe 
win do the Conservative Party the 
least electoral damage: it is the one 
that, given the political con- 
straints, would certainly be best 
for the education service. But I am 
not sure it does much for Baker 
himself And since he is an able 
and ambitious politician, tipped 
for the highest office, he may have 
different ideas. „ .

Acas, the conciliation service, but 
the chances of the talks reaching a 
consensus will be very much 
brighter if Baker is seen emerging 
from Cabinet meetings looking 
like the cat that has been given the 
cream: an expression which fortu- 
nately suits his physiognomy. 

The third cannot happen at all 
without the second. All of this is 
quiet, low-profile work: no. big 
policy speeches, no pyrotechnics. 

If the dispute is settled and the 
schools return to normal, the 
teachers will have plenty to be 
getting on with: ; Ail those ac- 
ronyms mean new courses^ even 
radically different teaching meth- 
ods. Many teachers wffi des- 
perately want to be left alone to get 
on with it; there is a huge pent-up 
desire to plan and collaborate and 
create. Baker will be well advised 
to play down the government’s 
role in these initiatives. To push in

Earlier this month I was involved 
in an amazingly innovative social 
experiment. I was a guest at the 
annual dinner of an organization 
called Books For Students, and 
although getting young people to 
read books is a daring social 
experiment in itself, the really 
adventurous part of the evening 
lay in the feet that this: on May 8, 
was its Christmas dinner. 

It had come about quite by 
accident Books For Students had 
always had a combined sales 
conference and party at the end of 
the year, so naturally enough it 
had been a Christmas party with 
crackers and plum duff Recently 
the organization was taken over by 
W.H. Smith, whose year ends in 
late spring. So Books For Students 
had to move its annual party. 

With that innate conservatism 
which caused the British Empire 
to dress for dinner no matter how 
tropical the circumstances. Boob 
For Students decided that its party 
could still be Christmassy. So on 
May 8. 1 found myself putting on a 
paper hat, pulling crackers, 
exchanging terrible riddles and 
throwing streamers at strangers. 
Everyone had a whale of a time. I 
only wish I had been able to stay 
for the panto.

unpleasant factors - buying pres-

nice to relations, and so on There 
were no children being sick with 
greed, or grown-ups grey with 
effort It was just an undiluted

said it was about the best summer 
holiday he had ever had. 

Perhaps there's another social 
law involved here, allied but 
different: Always make sure the 
rush hour is going in the opposite 

Using these two taws in tandem, 
ft should be possible to give a new 
flavour to our lives. For instance, 
it is always better to go on holiday 
out of season, but that is only, the 
half of it. it is also better to go on a 
holiday to places which ■ are 
considered risky or out of fashion. 

If I were an American, now is the

you, there was a feature in the 
International Herald Tribune on 
rfdmg holidays in Iran, which I 
think may be going a little fer. but

Again, there is a tendency when 
choosing a holiday to avoid those 
spots which have been developed 
or spoilt, and to go for the 
undeveloped, undiscovered areas. 
Even better, why not go for the 
places which used to be developed

Mrs Thatcher managed to 
upset both right-wing Israelis 
and left-wing Palestinians dur- 
ing her four-day visit to Jeru- 
salem. In doing so, however, 
she made sure that Britain’s 
voice was heard more clearly 
in- the Middle Hast than has 
been the case for many years. 
If this country i? to play a role 
in the peace process, it is 
important that this should be 
so. To that extent her visit — 
the first to be paid by a 
reigning British Prime Min- 
ister to the Holy Land — must 
be counted a significant suc- 

Mrs Thatcher was well 
qualified to conduct it. For one 
thing she is untainted in Israeli 
eyes by the Arabist sympathies 
which have largely coloured 
Foreign Office thinking. For 
another, her strong anti-terror- 
ist stance — illustrated most 
recently by her open support 
for the American raid on Libya 
—has enhanced her reputation 
in Jerusalem. She therefore 
arrived in Israel at the week- 
end with a set of impeccable 

The Prime Minister had two 
.objectives. One was to 
strengthen still further Anglo- 
Israeli relations following the 
red-carpet welcome for Mr 
Shimon Peres in London four 
months ago. The other was to 
explore the possibilities for 
once more injecting new life 
into the peace process. In the 
first of these she succeeded 
very well — her reputation as a 
scourge of Arab terrorists 
■ preceding her as she travelled 
amid tight security through the 
Holy Land. And this was 
despite, receiving what news- 

papers described as a swift 
rebuff for her proposals on the 
administration of . Israel's 
occupied territories. 

The second was much more 
difficult. She went with sparse 
hopes and fewer expectations 
of succeeding where others had 
failed. She nonethless man- 
aged to build new bridges 
between Britain and moderate 
members of the Arab commu- 
nity on the West Bank and in 
Gaza, both by her meeting 
‘with eight Palestinian repre- 
sentatives and by her vigorous 
support for free municipal 
elections in these territories. 

Israel's opposition to 
municipal elections at this 
time is based upon its experi- 
ence in 1976 when the elec- 
tions then held produced 
winners whom the Jerusalem 
government regarded as 
subversive. It would be naive 
to moralise about democractic 
principles to a country whose 
respect for these is consid- 
erably more admirable than is 
that of most of its Arab critics. 
But if one is searching for a 
moderate Arab leadership, 
prepared at least to consider 
practical steps in the direction 
of peaceful accommodation 
and at the same time accept- 
able to the inhabitants of the 
West Bank, an electoral pro- 
cess is one way of encouraging 
its emergence. 

Mrs Thatcher rightly made 
clear that this alternative 
Palestinian voice will be 
needed if the PLO cannot itself 
adopt a more moderate, realis- 
tic and acceptable tone. Israel 
wants direct talks with King 
Husain of Jordan and, while it 

is prepared to accept some 
Palestinian involvement, it re- 
mains opposed to the PLO as 
an oiganization involved in 
terrorism and dedicated to its 
own destruction. With Mr 
Shamir due to replace Mr 
Peres as prime minister in 
October, it is difficult to see 
Jerusalem becoming more 
flexible on this issue. 

But it is also realistic to 
recognize that the PLO itself 
remains the preferred option 
of many Palestinians — and 
has been able in the past to 
impose its will on those who 
would prefer other representa- 
tion. That being so, the appar- 
ent way forward is for elections 
to produce a Palestinian 
leadership who have the con- 
fidence of the PLO without 
being part of it — which is 
easier to prescribe than to 
guarantee —and then for some 
third party to arrange matters 
so that Israel can sit down with 

Israel believes, and rightly 
so, that only the United States 
can effectively fill the role of 
broker in these circumstances. 
But it also thinks that Britain 
has an important secondary 
part to play. Britain has ex- 
cellent relations with moderate 
Arab leaders like those in the 
Gulf states. President 
Mubarak of Egypt and particu- 
larly King Husain — who will 
be in London for further talks 
next month. The closeness 
between London and Wash- 
ington and the developing 
friendship between London 
and Jerusalem make Mrs. 
Thatcher's government well 
placed to play such a part This 
week's visit was a useful start. 


As the Shadow Foreign Sec- 
retary tries yet again to trade 
Britain's nuclear deterrent for 
a . Soviet promise to turn its 
warheads m . the other direc- 
tion, he — and others — would 
do well to contemplate the 
value of earlier Soviet prom- 
ises.; One of these relates to 

It so happens that while Mr 
Healey has been in Moscow, 
the wiD of the Western powers 
to preserve the city’s existing 
status has been subjected to 
one of its periodic tests- On 
Sunday, a number, of Western 
. diplomats were denied entry to 
Wesr Berlin after refusing to 
show their passports. East 
Germany had introduced new 
regulations stipulating that 
diplomats were required to 
present passports, when pre- 
viously diplomatic passes had 

The three Western powers 
responsible for Berlin - Brit- 
ain, France and the United 
States — responded immedi- 
ately by taking the matter up 
with the fourth power the 
Soviet Union. There has even 
been a report, as yet un- 
confirmed, that the Western 
powers have threatened to 
break off relations with East 
Germany if the measures are 
not rescinded. 

While such a response might 
appear extreme in the face of 
an ostensibly trivial breach of 
protocol, it would be entirely 
proper. The unique status of 
Berlin gives rise to many 
inconsistencies, but its dip- 

lomatic status is not one of 
them. For diplomatic pur- 
poses* Berlin is undivided and 
diplomats posted to Berlin, 
East or West, are permitted to 
come and go between the two 
zones on diplomatic passes 

: . ' If the Western powers were 
to cede, to the Soviet and East 
German authorities the right 
to inspect diplomats' passports 
and therefore to deride who 
comes and who goes and 
when, the danger is that this 
would be interpreted as de 
facto recognition of East Ger- 
man jurisdiction over Last 
Berlin and of the East-West 
" Berlin divide as a national 
frontier — something Britton, 
France and the USA have 
pledged not to do. So too, 
under the Quadripartite Agree- 
ment of 1971, has the Soviet 

This agreement was the 
price Moscow paid for the 
West's diplomatic recognition 
of East Germany. And if the 
Soviet Union — for it is the 
Soviet Union, after all. which 
is the occupying power in the 
Eastern sector of Berlin — now 
breaks that agreement, in 
whatever point of detail, it 
undermines the whole basis 
for the diplomatic recognition 
of East Germany. 

As well as being diplomati- 
cally proper, a threat to sus- 
pend . Western recognition of 
East Germany could also be 
effective. Since its inter- 
national recognition in the 
1970s, the GDR has increas- 

ingly capitalized on its special 
relationship with the Federal 
Republic and the West to 
establish itself on the dip- 
lomatic scene. Suspension of- 
that recognition would be as. 
deep a disappointment to East 
Germany as the withdrawal of 
the Soviet bloc from the Los 
Angeles Olympics two years 
ago. The East German authori- 
ties could then be expected to 

S ut pressure on Moscow to 
ave the regulations on 
diplomats’ passports lifted. 

Now some will argue that 
more rigorous controls on the 
movement of diplomats were 
exactly what the West was 
asking for after the terrorist 
bombing of the West Berlin 
discotheque. To which the 
response must be that the 
system of diplomatic passes, if 
properly observed, should be 
quite adequate. On no account 
must the quest for better 
security be used by one side to 
insinuate long-term changes 
into the status of Berlin. 

It is true that concessions, of 
a practical kind, have been 
made which allow Berlin to 
operate administratively as 
two separate cities. Nonethe- 
less, as the memories of the 
Berlin airlift and the building 
of the Wall fade, it is as well to 
remember that Berlin's dip- 
lomatic unity is a symbol of- 
the determination of the West 
to see the unresolved ques- 
tions of Europe resolved by 
negotiation, and that its effec- 
tive division by the Wall is a 
promise broken by Moscow. 


The Government might rate 
its handling of the universities 
as a success story. Its plans for 
their spending have, more or 
less, been realized, unlike its 
plans in secondary education, 

. agriculture, and defence. Aca- 
demic numbers have been cut 
There are even signs that the 
ambition of ministers to shift 
students into science and tech- 
nology- is being realized. 
Universities . have been 
through their efficiency 
inspection at the hands of Sir 
Alex Jarrett: they are, at the 
least.- as well run as the 
government departments 
which ordain such scrutinies. 

A hew generation of vice- 
chancellors is in place. Pro- 
vided, the. “bridging'’ money 
mentioned by Sir Keith Joseph 
is forthcoming, they signal that 
they will continue to cooperate 
in the shrinkage exercise. Per- 
haps they have no choice. 

The letter of intent, sent out 
last week .by the University 
Grants Committee should be 
read as pari of the 
Government’s rather barren 
achievement The document 
represents, in part, a mmTiage 
of minds. On one side is an 
academic caste many of whose 
members are convinced that 
university expansion went too 
far: They are, understandably. 

- anxious to protect bits' of the 
system 'they prize, especially 

laboratory research. On the 
other side are ministers who 
want to deliver their spending 
targets and are only too happy 
to have an academic, body 
make judgements on their 
behalf using a vocabulary in 
which “excellence” and 
“standards” are key words. 

The UGC has cast itself as 
the manager of a system in 
decline. It has not thought it 
politic to speculate about what 
future awaits such institutions 
as City University (once seen 
as a leader in several sectors of 
applied science) or Aston 
University (with its courses for 
pan-European business man- 
agers) other than to insinuate 
that it is dim. In the UGCs 
world a university is defined 
by its unit costs (based on 
research); there are no viable 
calculations, or futures for 
universities as liberal arts col- 
leges, or universities with a 
local catchment offering 
courses lower down the 
“standards” scale. 

Meanwhile the UGC ad- 
vertises its selection of War- 
wick York. Southampton and 
the other “winners” as a 
triumph of academic judge- 
ment. Yet the procedure is a 
bureaucratic one. For - a re- 
search councilio make a grant 
to the head of an, excellent 
department of physics is one 

thing. It relies on peer review 
and it does not exclude other 
physics departments which 
might be be capable of ex- 
cellent work in the future. But 
the UGC agglomerates to itself 
a mountain of information, 
objective and anecdotal and 
makes a once-for-all judge- 
ment It freezes a pattern of 
academic activity and aca- 
demic worth. Where is the 
ladder for the Stirlings and the 
Keeles to climb back to favour 
and fortune? And did aca- 
demic politics at no point 
obtrude? Or is the UGC, alone 
among bureaucratic institu- 
tions, insulated from callow 
considerations of personality 
and influence? 

Better by far to multiply 
sources of finance within 
higher education, so lessening 
the results of mistaken judge- 
ment and widening the 
opportunity for institutional 
rebirth. Beyond a core UGC 
grant, universities should for 
their own sake depend on 
many judges — students paying 
full-cost tuition fees, industrial 
and research council funds, 
charities, alumni, local 
authorities, consumers of 
university .expertise within the 
education system: a variety of 
bodies, public and private, to 
support universities in the 
variety of their purposes. 

Keeping the lid on nuclear secrets 

From Mr David Lowry 
Sir. In Parliament on May 13 
Environment Secretary. Kenneth 
Baker, pledged an easing of the 
secrecy that has bedevilled civil 
nuclear energy matter*. A day 
later, at the Foreign Affaire Coun- 
cil of the EEC. Mrs Lynda Chalker 
stated that the British Govern- 
ment abhorred secrecy on nuclear 
matterc (report, May 15). 

A week earlier, during his visit 
to Seilafield on May 7. Energy 
Secretary Peter Walker pledged 
that henceforth it was his desire 
that the nuclear industry should 
not indulge in secrecy’ of any 

It is to be hoped that this 
commitment will be heeded. But 
perhaps I may be forgiven for 
expressing some initial scepticism, 
based on a history of secrecy that 
has surrounded nuclear power 
since its inception. From a long 
list may ! evidence the following: 

In January. 1 984. the Friends of 
the Earth told the inspector at the 
Sizewell inquiry that they had 
been forced to obtain a report on 
the dangers of nuclear reactors, 
produced by the United Kingdom 
Atomic Energy Authority, in the 
United States under the Freedom 
of Information Act. The UKAEA 
refused to release the report on 
grounds of “commercial 

Similarly at the Sizewell inquiry 
m May. 1983, the Central Electric- 
ity Generating Board senior policy 
witness. Mr John Baker, told CND 
that no plutonium from CEGB 
reactors had ever been applied to 
weapons use in Britton or else- 
where. He added, when pressed 
for clarification and substantia- 
tion by CND, “our knowledge is 
partial. That which we do know 
we may not necessarily share with 

Nearly three years on. m March 
this year. Lord Marshall, the 
CEGB chairman, admitted that 
plutonium from CEGB reactors 
had been transferred to the mili- 
tary stockpile, hence disowning 

Aids in London 

From Dr Adam Lawrence 
Sir, Your article on the health 
service in London (May 12) 
describes accurately the present 
position of strain in the hospitals 
and implies that the future is very 

I agree, but I would like to draw 
the attention of Londoners to the 
growing health problem of Aids 
and its related diseases. This tragic 
epidemic makes ever-increasing 
demands on hospital and primary 
(community) care services alike. 
About 65 per cent of the 350 or so 
reported cases in the UK come 
from the London area and these 
numbers are doubling every 10 

A study of a group of “at risk" 
population from an estimated 
6,000 in the catchment area of one 
of the London teaching hospitals 
showed positive blood tests in 3 
per rent of them in 1982. This had 
increased to 21 per rent in an 
equivalent group in 1985. 

London is faced with an increas- 
ing epidemic which will make 

Musical excellence 

From Mr James Gibb 
Sir, In her letter of May 15 Miss 
Fanny Waterman demurred from 
j Sir Ian Hunter's opinion (April 
26) that the over-all standard of 
our music colleges was “already 
high", citing her experience as a 
juror on international piano com- 
petitions in which British pianists, 
j with their inadequate techniques, 
have fared badly. 

Perhaps a seat on an inter- 
national competition is not the 
best vantage point from which to 
survey and pass judgment on the 
music colleges. If blame there be, 
is.sbe laying it at the right door? 

The truth is that real artistic 
excellence is unattainable if the 
solo performer has not already 
acquired a thorough technical 
foundation long before the age at 
which a student normally enters a 
music college- Can a single great 
artist be named who has not 
developed the necessary technical 
skills at an early age? Indeed the 
most distinguished of Miss 
Waterman's own pupils, now 
enjoying successful artistic ca- 
reers, have received such training 
at her hands when they were very 

Effective pursuit of excellence 
must begin at a very early stage. It 
is in the primary stages of musical 
education that much more 
reforming zeal should be directed. 
Whatever the merits or short- 
comings of the music colleges they 
can only respond as best they can 
to the talent they receive. 

Yours faithfully.

Hang 'em all 

From Mr F. J. Dttpays 
Sir. According to statistics sup- 
plied by the Royal Academy, out 
of 12,544 works submitted for 
inclusion in this year's summer 

his board's own evidence to the 
Sizewell inquiry. 

Ever since 1973, when the 
United Kingdom joined the EECs 
nuclear agency, Euraiom. there 
have been negotiations between 
the latter and the Government on 
a safeguards system for Seilafield. 
Mr Walker was in charge of the 
negotiations in 1973 when he was 
overseeing energy matters within 
the old giant Department of Trade 
and Industry’. 

Thirteen yean on. the negotia- 
tions remain unresolved, Mr 
Walker is bade at the helm, and 
whilst he is inviting holiday- 
makers to Seilafield, the Euraiom 
inspectors are still barred. 

When Frank Cook asked the 
current Department of Trade and 
Industry how much uranium was 
imported, by country, for civil 
purposes in 1985. the answer was 
“the information is not available" 
(Hansard. March 25. 1986. col 
397). As the Government must 
know where they procured their 
uranium, the answer must mean 
that the Government are keeping 
the information secret. 

The whole attitude of the Gov- 
ernment was best summed up in a 
report in The Times of February 6. 
1984. where it was reported that 
the Cabinet Office had refused to 
release an unannounced study of 
the effectiveness of the Thatcher 
government’s policy on open gov- 
ernment on the grounds that it 
“obviously would not lend itself to 
publication". Your newspaper's 
headline for the story read 
“Progress towards open govern- 
ment to be kept a secret". 

Precisely. What is now needed 
is dear evidence ofa change of (he 
secretive policy as promised by 
Mr Walker. We are waiting im-

Out-patient premises in the

Priest and people 

From Mrs Anne Inman 
Sir. In warning of the culture 
shock for Anglicans m the event of 
union between the sees of Rome 
and of Canterbury. Jonathan 
Harfield (feature. May 17) seems 
not to take into account the 
possibility of change within the 
Roman Catholic Church. 

There is a growing awareness of 
the price that is being paid for the 
Catholic priest’s "emotional 
detachment". An important func- 
tion of the Ministry to Priests 
Programme, which had reached 
1 1 dioceses in Britain by the end of 
last year, is to repair much 
emotional damage that has re- 
sulted from this detachment. One 
might hope that it will be possible 
for the ordained priest to lose his 
“almost mystical aura" so that 
people might begin to relate to 
him properly. 

Nor is the question of ordina- 
tion of women to the priesthood 
confined to the Church of En- 
gland. Edmund Hill, writing for 
the new series, “Introducing 
Catholic Theology" l Being Hu- 
man, 1984, Geoffrey Chapman), 

Are there any doctrinal, theologi- 
cal. revealed reasons why women 
should not. and indeed cannot, be 
validly ordained? I confess I have 
never come across any. All the 
reasons that have been put forward 
have been based on the premiss ot 
the natural subordination and in- 
feriority of women — which we have 
been at pains to see is by no means a 
premiss of revelation.

Lords warning 
on EEC treaty 

From Mr Peter Horsfield. QC, and 
Mr Leo! in Price. QC 
Sir. “The powers of the United 
Kingdom Parliament will be 
weakened by the Single European 
Act. The Committee draw this 
important fact to the special 
alien i ion of the House." 

Thus, in its first conclusion, the 
House of Lords Select Committee 
on the European Communities 
expresses the point we 
endeavoured to make in our letter 
of Mav 6 and conveniently an- 
swers the points raised by others 
in subsequent letters. 

The grounds of the committee's 
conclusion are set out fully in this 
week's report (The Single Euro- 
pean Act and Parliamentary Scru- 
tiny. published on May 20) and 
amply justify concern. In general 
they point to the inescapable fact 
that the effect of the Single 
European Act will be to “in- 
crease. . . the areas subject to 
Community law rather than na- 
tional law - at the expense of 
Member States’’. More particu- 
larly they draw attention to the 
formidable legislative powers of 
the Commission: 

The powers of the Commission in 
relation to the drafting of legislation 
arc already significant and wjl) 
become more so. The Commission 
is “master" of the text of any 
proposal for legislation In addi- 

tion the Commission determines 
which amendments pul forward by 
the European Parliament — are 
submitted to the Council. . . [and] 
amendments not endorsed by the 
Commission require unanimity be- 
fore they can be adopted. Fixed 
limits on the lime during which the 
Member States can bargain about a 
re-examined proposal should also 
strengthen the Commission's 

in addition to its own powers 
the Commission can (as in prac- 
tice it will) have delegated to it the 
powers of the Council. It is 
difficult to conceive how national 
parliamentary government can 
continue to exist in any real sense 
alongside so powerful a directive 

The diminution of the role of 
Parliament is mailer foF concern 
enough. Even more worrying is 
the want of frankness exhibited by 
ministerial and other official state- 
ments. We can only hope that, late 
in the day, the House of Lords 
committee's report will bring the 
important constitutional issues 
involved out into the open where 
they belong.

Business penalty 

From Mr Dennis J. Fowle 
Sir. Lord Young appears to be 
fighting a losing battle in trying to 
take real bureaucratic burdens of! 
the backs of business. As he 
nibbles away at one end. Customs 
and Excise has imposed a massive 
load at the other and the Inland 
Revenue is now busily engaged in 
devising new enforcement powers. 

The new VaT penalties are just 
beginning to bite — and honest, 
small business people are really 
feeling the pain. 

In the first case before a VAT 
tribunal a lady running a small 
debt-col Iccting agency did not 
appreciate how her turnover was 
growing. When she realised she 
was above the VAT threshold she 
voluntarily went to customs, reg- 
istered and collected all VAT 
which should have been paid. 
Then customs imposed a penalty 
of £495. 30 per cent of the tax due 
for the period she should have 
been registered. In two years’ time 
an interest charge will also be 

Is this the way to treat honest 
business people who collect VAT 
on behalf of the Government? 
There is no mitigation available — 
either to customs or the tribunal. 

Lord Grantchesier. tribunal 
president, said that if there had 
been criminal proceedings, fall 
account could have been taken of 
the mitigating circumstances. 

Honest taxpayers will be dis-

GCSE standards 

From Mr D. G. Evans 
Sir. It is nearly 20 years since this 
country embarked on the new 
internationally agreed system of 
technical units (SI units). Much of 
the country has in that time 
transferred fully or in pan to litres, 
grammes, millimetres. Newtons. 
Celsius and so on. 

One can only be astonished, 
therefore, that the GCSE examin- 
ers now insist on setting questions 
which reintroduce “feet" and 
“pound" (lb) units. They have 
understandably concealed how 
these units would be sub-divided, 
whether decimally or in twelfths 
and sixteenths. We perhaps can 
imagine Itb of peas, but what 
butcher can sell a piece of meat 
precisely cut to 51b? 

It should perhaps be mentioned 
that Britain is one of the very few 
countries in the world which has 
bothered to implement the use of 
SI units. This has effectively made 
our present position internation- 
ally more remote than ever. 

Yours faithfully.

MAY 28 1898 

Since the 16th century Cuba had 
been colonised by Spain. In 1897 
after a series of bloody wars 
between her and Cuban rebels, the 
USA offend to act as a mediator. 
The plan came to nothing, and in ■ 
February IS98, the US battleship, 
Maine, was blown up in Havana , 
harbour; compelled by public j 

opinion. America declared war on \ 
Spain. It u as short-lived. By the 
treaty of Paris that year, Spain ! 
" relinquished " Cube to the USA \ 
to w held in trust for the 
inhabitants. A merica s mandate I 
ended in 1902 when Cuba was \ 
declared a republic. Our 
correspondent u-aa Poultney 



(From ■ corespondent on board 
the U.S. Transport Gussie.) 

OFF HAVANA, May 13. 

Yesterday morning, in broad 
daylight, we steamed up to the 
entrance of Havana and leisurely 
inspected Motto Castle, the light- 
house. and half-a-dozen spires of 
her many handsome churches. Our 
steamer is an old-fashioned pas- 
senger boat with paddle-wheels, 
beamy and steady, but very slow, 
perhaps nine knots. We are, of 
course, unarmoured. At our bow is 
a Gatling, and our one hundred odd 
men of the first United States 
infantry are reliable- This little 
outfit proposed to itself nothing 
less than the invasion of Cuban sou 
and the engagement of any troops 
that might accidentally be there in 
ambush. We steamed slowly along 
the shore until we passed beneath a 
long species of ‘Table Mountain," 
on which is a heliograph station. 
This is near a place called Mariel, 
and it is here that we proposed 
landing the first instalment of our 
contraband stuff - namely, three 
horses, three Cuban patriots, and 
some baggage belonging to 
them. . . 

We steamed along to the mouth 
of Cabanas Bay, about 30 miles 
west of Havana, where we saw no 
sign of shipping, although our 
Cuban friends tried to persuade us 
that several Spanish torpedo-boats 
lay there in ambush. Indeed our 
Cuban allies, both pilots and 
patriots, were inclined to be alarm- 
ists, fbr at every move we made 
there was some discouraging advice 
offered by them. We had not been 
able to land the Cuban Patriot 
Commission at Mariel because of a 
handful of troops on the look out. 
Here, however, we were within one 
mile of a garrison stated to be 2,000 
men. In broad daylight, at 20 
minutes past 2 in the afternoon, we 
sent a boat ashore containing our 
three Cubans. For the previous 
half-hour we had been under 
desultory fire from the Spanish 
troopers, who followed t» at a safe 
distance along the beach and 
occasionally ran ahead into a safe 
ambush for a pop at our paddle- 
boxes. But none of these warnings 
troubled Captain Dorst In the 
slightest degree. He was counting 
upon gross incapacity in the ranks 
of the enemy, and he was destined 
to be anything but disappointed. 
After having gi yen 10 the enemy 
the most complete possible infor- 
mation as to our intentions and 
destination, we selected as the 
place of debarcation an open 
beach, accessible only after a 
difficult struggle with the breakers, 
on a string of reefs stretching about 
fifty yards from the beach for 
several miles. The woods here as 
elsewhere grew close to the water's 
edge, and had there been ten 
thousand men there in ambush we 
on the ships should not have 
known it. With a contempt of every 
regulation laid down for such cases 
by the most respectable text-books, 
our men went ashore after the 
maimer of holiday people in search 
of a picnic ground. After the three 
Cubans had been several minutes 
alone on the beach occupied in 
peering about amongst the thick 
bushes, two boatloads managed to 
reach the line of surf, and there 
they stuck until the men jumped 
out and, floundering in the break- 
ers. managed to struggle ashore. At 
that moment half-a-dozen enter- 
prising Spaniards could have had 
every one of them at their mercy, 
for no one could have saved them 
in this predicament. However, a 
special providence appeared to 
watch over this expedition, and the 
first 20 or 30 men. dripping with 
salt water, but sound as to rifle and 
cartridge belts, finally reached the 
beach and gave three lusty 
cheers. . . . Every man in our party 
felt the historic importance of this 
moment — 

Answering back 

From Mrs Morar Lucas 
Sir. My grandfather, bom in the 
1850s. had firm views on every- 
thing. including “thank you" let- 
ters. He gave a wedding present 
and received no 
acknowledgement. In due course 
the happy couple were abashed to 
receive from him a package 
containing paper, siring and 
stamps, together with a note 
requesting the return of the gift as 
he "assumed from their silence 
that they did not want i«".

In our youth our family had a 
rich, and generous, unde. He 
deleted any of his relations from

dom it was a non-evenL bul as 
readers wilt have gathered from 
press' and television its appa- 
rition yielded scientific informa- 
tion of great value, mucli of ' 
which is still to be fully assessed. 

The. summer solstice occurs, 
as mentioned above, when the 
Sun is at its farthest north, and 
this point among ihe stars is in 
the constellation Gemini. It was / 
not always so. and as mentioned 
on another occasion the point in 
the sky called “the first point of 
Aries" is in faci-in Pisces;- 

The "sign" allotted by astrolo- j 
gers to the date of your birth 
does not mean the constellation 
in which the Sun was on that 
important occasion. In our 
notes last' month it was men- 
tioned that among names of 
Bootes in the distant past were 
Harvester and Ploughman. All 
these contradictions are due to 
the phenomenon known as the 
"precession of the equinoxes". 

The plane of the Earth's orbit 
around the Sun. the ecliptic. -can 
be regarded as fixed with respect 
to the constellations and deter- 
mines the Sun's path through 
them. The Earth's axis of rota- 
tion is inclined to this plane by 
66 f /b deg. and the equatorial 
plane upon which our co- 
ordinate system is . based is 
therefore inclined to the ecliptic 
by 23* deg. 

The equinoxes are the two 
points of intersection. Unfortu- 
nately the Earth's axis is subject 
to a slow "wobble", or pre- 
cession. like that of a dying 
spinning top: the equator, the 
coordinate system and the equi- 
noxes precess with iL taking 
26.000 years for a complete 
cycle. Thus the first point of 
Aries and the astrologers' signs 
have moved by a whole 
constellation since being given 
their names. 

That is fact; now for legend 
and., speculation. According to 
one authority, there was a 
period when Bootes was prom- 
inent at harvest time: later the 
solstice and equinox moved and 
prominence came with the

Lifelong devotion to the Turf 

A love ofllying and a love of 
horses, but especially horses, 
were among ihe dominating 
. interests in the life of Lord 
Willoughby de Broke, MC.

the age of 90.

of Warwickshire, he was one

President of the Hunters’ Im-

Lord Willoughby had hors-

with the late Jack Leader. 

Outspoken in his views, be 
was generous towards those 
with whom be disagreed, as 
for example over the vexed 
question of a Tote monopoly, 
which he favoured. 

He was in great demand as ■ 
an entertaining after dinner l

functions abroad where his 
fluent French, spoken with a 
somewhat "Pas de Calais" 
accent, never foiled lo capti-

Having had a foretaste ' of 
David Cohen's documentary 
Viewpoint Victims (Cen- 
tral) on Monday night's Open 
The Box, the viewer may have 
been more than usually, alert to 
the possibility of artful ma- 
nipulation in these interviews 
with the victims of crime. How 
many takes were needed to 
elicit tears from the widow of a 

ticket collector wantonly killed 
by a metal spike through the 
head? Given the harrowing 
■7 circumstances of the case, the 
most likely answer would he 

Perhaps the most nsefol 
function of programmes such 
as Open Tne Box is to remind 
ns- time -the most intimate 
raomdits between subject and 
interviewer take place in the 
presence of five Or sis silent 
and unseen technicians. In 
agreeing to ignore this sub- 
merged bulk of the televisual, 
iceberg the interviewee col- 
lodes in the artifice of pro- 
gramme making: with 

"personalities*' It cook! not be 
otherwises with "real people" 
such as the unremarkable 
£ victims seen here and in every 
' "fly on the wall" documentary, 
interviewees willy-nilly act 
themselves for the camera. 

The most persuasive actor 
in last nighfs choppQy-edlted 
drama was the sister of a man 
killed in a frenzy by his wife, 
who subsequently convinced 
the court that his publicly 
gregarious personality had 
masked a privately vicious 
batterer. The sister was grant- 
ed equal screen time with a 
man who was left permanently 
injured by an unprovoked 
attack, a more realistically 
sympathy-provoking victim by 
far. She had been bereaved in 
» debatable circumstances, he 
bad suffered an atrocious 
physical assault. But in twins 
of articulacy and indignation, 
she was better television. 

Elsewhere, Mr Cohen's 
judgement faltered only once, 
when the victims of a daylight 
burglary suffered the addition- 
al indignity of a camera doing 
its level best to bore op then 
nostrils while the husband was 
comforting the wife. Tie 
programme's overall message, 
that the authorities tend to 
regard the victims of crime as 
"part of the paperwork" came 
across loud and dear, and one 
can only echo Nick Ross's 
customary valediction on 
. Crimewatch: "Try not to have 
v nightmares"

Grandeur in a mocking grimace 

Antony and 
Haymarket . 

One thing is dear from the 
first of Theatr Gwyd’s two 
Haymarket productions; the 
directors (Toby Robertson 
and Christopher Selbie) are 
aiming to do more than put a 
frame round Vanessa 

The surrounding company 
presents an interesting mix of 
old National Theatre stal- 
warts, robust troopers of the 
kind who used to sustain Mr 
Robertson's Prospect Shows, 
and wild outsiders to the 
classical stage. Where else 
would you find Sylvester Mc- 
Coy playing a pipsqueak Pom- 
pey, and winding up drunk in 
.Antony's arms at the end of 
the galley scene? It may sound 

silly but it makes Shakes- 
peare's point that this Pompey 
is a down compared with his 

More seriously, there is a 
gravely ineffectual Lepidus 
from Gerald James, along the 
lines of a town clerk catapult- 
ed into central government; 
and ihere is a firey, sardonic 
Enobarbus from Robert 
O'Mahoney, who also benefits 
from some of the best direct- 
ing in the show. 

Means have been found to 
sharpen most of his asides into 
partnership exchanges, and to 
project his line of thought 
when he is not speaking. For 
instance, when Antony shuts 
him up during the first Roman 
conference, he responds with 
mute horror to the political 
marriage plan; and when he 
embarks on his description of 
Cleopatra, it is not an aria but 
an angry rebuke to the two 

Roman idiots who proposed 
the idea of marrying Antony 
to Octavia in the first place. 

There are other fresh and 
illuminating points; but they 
fail to coalesce into a coherent 
view of the play, much less lo 
overcome its notorious stag- 
ing problems. 

Simon Higlett's set consists 
of a gulled Roman mansion 
with an upper window ledge 
put to various inventive uses 
before it comes into its own as 
the monument. What ii fails 
to do is to 1 supply the vital 
division between the two 
worlds of Rome and Egypt. 

There are some powerful 
images - from the first sight of 
Geopatra enticing her jack-in- 
ihe^box lover out of a treasure 
chest to a spectacle of his 
bleeding body being winched 
aloft by a single arm. 

Unfortunately these are iso- 
lated images; moments of 

visual excitement that come 
and go in the midst of routine 
semi-circular groupings and 
some of the most deliberately 
attenuated delivery I can re- 
call (the production lasts up- 
wards of 3'.'j hours). Nor has 
Mr Robertson found any 
means of dealing with the 
battle scenes: all we get is 
smoke, red light and yet 
another figure gloomily wan- 
dering out of Lhe murk to 
describe the latest disaster. 

When she last played Geo- 
patra (1973) Miss Redgrave 
presented a bullying dilleiante 
playing at soldiers in a white 

This time she comes on 
with cropped head in a long 
white gown; an androgynously 
anonymous figure emphasiz- 
ing all the'marks of age. 

Her opening scenes are at 
once hilarious and alarming; 
baring her teeth in a mocking 

grimace as she goes into games 
of rough and tumble and 
outrageous mimicry with 
Antony before being spanked 
and carried off piggy back. 

What the opening establish- 
es is that Timothy Dalton's 
hypnotized Antony is in thrall 
to a creature who will certainly 
bring about his downfall: and 
that nothing exists for Geopa- 
ira beyond the desires of the 

At every chance she gets. 
Redgrave pushes home her 
vanity, arrogance, and duplici- 
ty. The reward of this ap- 
proach is that against all the 
odds, she achieves tragic gran- 
deur on her own terms; facing 
death as yet another game, but 
one worth her time.

their experience together, in 
forir pofectly synchronized 
changes of speed and volume. 
Mr Rattle is a bit freer with his 
rallemandos than the score 
requires, but the effect is to 
assure the impression of a 

giant machine reaching with 

something special; a perfor- effort the top of a hill in order 
mance of Messiaen’s to freewheel exuberantly 

down the other side. 

Much of the special quality 
of this performance came 
from that sense of the music 

Wells Cathedral 

Even by the extraordinary 
standards of Simon Rattled 
recent achievements, this was 

Turangaiifa Symphony within 
the visually and acoustically 
welcoming ambience of. a 

• great cathedral, and with the 

1 composer there to be. one 
hopes, thunderstruck with the 
rest of us. 

It is hard to imagine how 
the piece could be better done. 
Rattle has the energy and the 
trust in the score (as well as. 
no less important, the trust of 
his players) to make possible a 
confident, positive sounding 
of its extremes of tempo. The 
slow music was not sluggish 
but very' carefully and exactly 
decelerated to suggest sus- 
pended rime, and the wild D 
flat dance of cosmic joy was 
even a little faster than 
marked, yet managed by the 
large orchestra with quite 
astonishing precision. 

, In such feats Mr Rattle and 
his Birmingham orchestra 
were no doubt building on 

generating its own momen- 
tum, ana from the. fantastic 
brilliance of colour. The 
blendings within this orches- 
tra, of woodwind and violins, 
trumpets and percussion, were 
marvellously clear and true, 
and the liveliness and variety 
of tone were enhanced by the 
soloists, Paul Crossley and 
Tristan Murail. With eacb 
layer so secure, even the most 
crowded textures lay open to 

Luminous polyphony was a 
feature, too. of the Tristan 
music played as an effectively 
contrasting approach to the 
same theme, and done with a 
long breath that Mr Rattle 
must some day extend into the 
rest of the opera.

The sense of destiny in La 
forza del destine is so clearly 
fashioned by the characters 
involved that Verdi’s St Pe- 
tersburg opera might just as 
well have been called . "War 
and Peace": everyone is either 
running after the one or crying 
for the other, and the result is 
a sad, sprawling epic of human 
degradation and destruction, 
sanctified by the tragic nobil- 
ity, of Verdi's music. It is this 
almost contradictory quality 
of heroic pessimism that is 
highlighted in the new Munich 
production, which is staged by 
Gdtz Friedrich and conducted 
by Giuseppe Sinopoli. 

Like the work itself, the 
production is a pateby success, 
its value lyingmore in the way 
it inspires admiration for the 
compass of Verdi’s imagina- 
tion than in its achievement of 
conventional operatic goals. 
Friedrich was a good choice 
for this opera. He has a flair 
for both the war scenes and 
the arch humanity of lhe friar 
Melittme that stops just short 
of caricature; and he brings to 
the squalor and pessimism a 
characteristically strong dose 
of intellectual rigour. 

The chief interest in 
Friedrich’s concept is the way 
he tightens the opera's struc- 
ture by using a single set 
There is not even time for 
applause between acts or 
scenes, and the evening 
sweeps' past with exceptional 
coherence. The opera is 
played' in full in the revised 
Milan; version of 1869, the 
only change being the placing 
of the encampment scene 

Kurt Moll as the Father Superior, Julia Varady as Leonora 

noch, serves equally well as 
courtyard, cathedral or cav- 
ern, and Lore Haas's costumes 
evoke the grey anonymity of 
the Napoleonic mob. Some of 
the work’s stature derives 
from the very volatility of its 
contrasts, and these were in 
part smothered. On this occa- 
sion. it seemd a price worth 

Sinopoli emerged with great 
credit. Any reservations about 
his exhibition of primary col- 
ours in the overture were 
undermined by his ability to 
inspire the orchestra to play 
with such virtuoso bloom and 

before rather than after the 
first Carto-Alvaro fight, there- 
by keeping Melitone’s sermon 
well apart from his hectoring 
of the beggars at the start of 
Act.fV. At the end. Alvaro 
expires next to Leonora, 
though Friedrich leaves us to 
decide whether this is 
Liehestod or sheer world- 

The action lakes place in a 
giant brick-and concrete ruin, 
shaped like a transept, selec- 
tively lit and sparely decorat- 
ed for each scene. This man- 
made theatre of operations, 
designed by Hans Schaver- 

polish. Thereafter he was the 
model of discretion, temper- 
ing nervous eneigy with re- 
spect for his singers’ strengths 
and limitations. 

The taut expressiveness of 
his reading was at one with the 
production. The weakest 
point in a strong cast was the 
Alvaro of Veriano Lucheui. 
whose voice has a pleasant 
open timbre but lacks weight 
— his top is suspect and his 
phrasing correspondingly 
short. Nor was his acting up to 
lhe standard of his non-Tialian 
colleagues: the role could real- 
ly do with a Carreras. Bruno 
Pola impressed as Melitone. 
Wolfgang BrendeJ’s Carlo had 
a subdued evening — the voice 
is just about heavy enough, 
but sounds stubbornly one- 
dimensional. Marjana 
Lipovsek was a swashbuck- 
ling. peg-legged Preziosilla, a 
victim as much as a product of 
war. using a rifle for physical 
support and her other crutch 
to make a living. 

Kurt Moll, the personifica- 
tion of sobriety and saintli- 
ness, was an outstanding 
Father Superior, his Act IT 
duet with Julia Varady’s Leo- 
nora undoubtedly the water- 
shed of the performance. Miss 
Varady sang the same role in 
Munich's previous Forza pro- 
duction in 1 974. She looks and 
sounds as young as ever and. if 
the cropped hair and grey 
uniform of Act II gave her 
more the appearance of the 
revolutionary’ than the peni- 
tent, she justified all in her 
vocal radiance, stamina and 
tender feminine fragility. She 
is a complete child of the 
opera stage, who communi- 
cates more about dramma in 
muxica in a single phrase than 
many singers do in a career.

Bernard Mac 
Laverty (right) 
has written the 
script of Lamb , 
a Elm based on 
his first novel, 
which opens in 
London next 
week. He talks to 
Paul Nathanson 

In Cat. Bernard Mac Laverty’s 
much-acclaimed novel, a 
sense of redemption tempered 
the ultimate pathos. But in 
Lamb, the film which he has 
written based on his first 
novel and which opens in 
London next week, there is no 
such relief. Mac Laverty quiet- 
ly agrees that it is a story oi 
failure and despair. 

Mac Laverty himself, pull- 
over rolled up to his elbows, 
revealing white, boyish arms, 
is hardly melancholic. Renow- 
ned for his impish humour, he 
has as much trouble suppress- 
ing his Belfast bonhomie as 
keeping his battered pipe 

Lamb tells of a priest. 
Michael Lamb, who runs 
away with a boy of twelve 
from the borstal where he 
teaches. The boy. Owen, grabs 
physical freedom, while Lamb 
escapes his spiritual father. 
Father Benedict, a sadistic 
reactionary, who boasts “We 
teach them a little God and a 
lot of fear”, and "Freedom is 
an affliction". 

“ Lamb is partly a metaphor 
for the situation in Northern 
Ireland”, says Mac Laverty. 
“The strength of feeling that 
comes out of Lamb is in some 
way the strength of feeling I’ve 
had about Northern Ireland, 
the parallel being how misdi- 
rected love results in tragedy. 

"Normally writing is the 
most awful drudge”. Mac 
Laverty explains, "but here 
one idea led to another and I 
wrote it very, very quickly in 
about three months". 

Mac Laverty. who once 
described film writing as re- 
ducing paragraphs of prose 
into grunts, pared the prose so 
savagely that the story's very 
structure almost collapsed, 
and director Colin Gregg had 
to steer him back to the source 
material and re-introduce the 
book into the film. 

There was also a hiccup 
over the title, which producer 
Neil Zeiger wanted to change. 
Mac Laverty was equally ada- 
mant it should stay and 
resorted to his spiky, mischie- 
vous humour to preserve it. 
suggesting inane alternatives 
like The Disillusioned 

Mac Laverty. 43. lean and 
less jowly than photos suggest, 
holds the sanctity of his prose 
in rather less awe and went 
ahead with the screenplay for 
three reasons. It was. he says, 
interesting, lucrative and also 
a way of protecting the book. 

Bernard Mac Laverty has a 
reputation for being philo- 
sophical and unflustered while 
working on films: a convivial 
winy man, he has a quiet 
confidence, oiled by an easy 
eloquence and frequent laugh- 
ter — both at himself and the 
world around him. It is as 

though a man whose stories 
are often so bleak with the 
recurring ihemes of conflict 
and rancour, cannot bear to 
live with his literary self. 

“In writing, yes. I tend to be 
pessimistic, but in myself I 
think I’m a fair optimist", he 
observes. “I don't know why 
that should be. except that 
coming from Northern Ire- 
land. if you're going to reflect 
in any way the situation there, 
you can't write something 
which would end with heel- 
clicking jollity.” 

Son of a commercial artist. 
Mac Laverty caused an imme- 
diate stir on entering the world 
of films at the age of five. Just 
tiWiam was playing in Belfast 
and the child Bernard was so 
terrified that he was led from 
lhe auditorium in a state of 
screaming hysteria. 

His literary career proved 
less melodramatic and he did 
not start writing until he was 
19. At the time he uas a Jab 
technician in the Anatomy 
Department at Queen's Uni- 
versity. Belfast, having been 
pushed into science at school. 
Inspired by D. H. Lawrence 
and Kafka, he spent 10 years 
"writing badly”. Still today he 
wrestles with writing. At 
present he is going through “a 
bad patch”, agonizing over the 
very' nature of his prose. More 
than that he will not say: “I 
don't want to engage in a 
discussion of it If 1 could. 1 
would know what was wrong." 

After his apprenticeship he 
published his first book of 
short stories. Secrets, in 1977 
and his first novel. Lamb, in 
1980, which won critical ac- 
claim as well as a Scottish Arts 
Council Book Award. Mean- 
while. he had abandoned sci- 
ence to do an English degree 
and become a teacher, taking 
up his first post in Edinburgh 
before moving to the Isle of 
Islay. Now with his wife 
Madeleine — his most influen- 
tial critic — and four children 
he lives in Glasgow. 

A present Mac Laverty. who 
sees himself primarily as writ- 
er of fiction, is completing a 
third book of short stories and 
also working on a third film 
script, called Perugia. For the 
first time the script will not be 
based on one of his books but 
on a true story about an Italian 
in Paris in 191 1. 

"It’s a kind of smile”, he 
says. “A comedy, which is 
very different to anything I’ve 
ever written before. Perhaps 
it's partly an attempt to shake 
off the darkness in my work. 
And people have been telling 
me not to underrate comedy. I 
made a mental somersault to

an Irishman in Britain. If you

Explanation of 
budget ‘rating’ 
for universities 

By Lucy Hodges, Education Correspondent 

Each of the 53 universities 
and institutes in Britain were 
sent a detailed letter last night 
by the University Grants 
Committee explaining how 
their budgets had been fixed 
for the next academic year and 
how their research had been 

Every university depart- 
ment in the country should 
know this morning whether it 
is assessed as average, above 
average, or whether it is given 
a star for excellence. 

Those departments assessed 
as below average will get no 
rating at alL The new review is 
the first of its kind undertaken 
by the committee, and should 
decide whether departments 
are likely to survive and 
prosper, or face the axe. The 
committee has this year allo- 
cated IS per cent of the total 
money available to universi- 
ties on the basis of the quality 
of their research. 

Once the letters have been 
made public, it should be 
possible for students and par- 
ents to have a rough guide to 
the quality of research for each 
university department 

Research basis 
for assessment 

The assessment also lakes 
into account the -amount of 
money from outside the uni- 
versity system that institu- 
tions receive for research, but 
gives no indication of the 
quality of teaching. 

The letters follow last 
week's details of budget allo- 
cations by the committee 
which imposed cash cuts of up 
to 0.5 per cent on 18 institu- 
tions. The committee was 
faced with a 2 per cent cut in 
real terms in the amount of 
money it was given by the 
Government and spread that 
by allocating money on the 
basis of student numbers and 
the quality of research. 

Howls of anguish went up 
from universities around the 
country’ because even those 
with cash increases said that 
the allocations would mean 
cuts in real terms. Cambridge. 

which received an increase of 
0.7 per cent said this would 
mean a decrease of 3.5 to 4 per 
cent in real terms, or between 
£1 m and £2 m. 

The average increase in 
gram was I per cent. Salford 
University, cut heavily in the 
university cuts of 1981. re- 
ceives an* increase this lime of 
LI per cent, but it says this 
figure means a drop in real 
terms of 4 per cent. 

Even Warwick, famous for 
its links with industry and the 
amount of money it attracts 
from outside sources for re- 
search. said that its increase of 
4 per cent, the highest of any 
university. would mean ii 
would have to continue to 

College facing 
deficit In *87 

The University College of 
Wales. Aberystwyth, one of 
four Welsh institutions to be 
cut. said that it was likely to 
lace a deficit next year of 

“We were cut to the bone in 
I9S1.” Dr Gareth Owen, the 
college principal, said. 

"We were promised level 
funding and despite increasing 
our funding from external 
sources, improving our re- 
search income and developing 
our industrial links, we have 
been cut once again by more 
than 5 per cent." 

Oxford University was ex- 
tremely angry that it received

Academy’s masterpieces of 
famous and unknown art 

Works of art by the famous 
and the unknown, priced at 
between £20 and £34,000, were 
unveiled at Burlington House, 
Piccadilly, yesterday at the 
preview of the Royal 
Academy’s 218th summer 

Entries for this most sought- 
after of showings were, at 
12544, well down on last 
year’s entry of over 15,000, 
mainly as a resalt of the 
academy's new policy of 
charging artists £7.50 per 
submission in an effort to 
substitute quality for quantity. 

The fifteen-man hanging 
committee chose 1,593 works 
for display, compared with 
more than 1,700 last year. Mr 
John Ward, chairman of the 
hanging committee, said at the 
press day yesterday:“This 
year's exhibition is as good as 
any I can ever remember. The 
place is full of masterpieces. 

By Alan Hamilton 

often by quite unknown 

The academy hopes that 
last year's attendance figure of 
142,706, the highest since 
1959, will be exceeded this 
year. The exhibition, which 
opens to the public on Satur- 
day, continues until mid- 

One of Britain's foremost 
contemporary painters, David 
Hockney, is exhibiting for tire 
first time, with three limited- 
edition lithographs priced at 
between £4,000 and £124)75. 
But the highest-priced work is 
a Luge canvas showing an 
unusual treatment of the Cru- 
cifixion by Allen Jones, 
“Night Moves, 1984", show- 
ing a mermaid on the cross. 

Ad early bargain banter was 
Mr Jeffrey Archer, the novel- 
ist and Conservative Party 
publicist, who prowled the 
galleries in search of invest- 
ments. Several years ago he 

bought a scuplture by Sydney 
Harpley for £1 20. Mr Harpley 
has an exhibit. this year priced 
at £10,000. 

One of the more unusual 
exhibits is the artwork for the 
Band Aid charity record 
sleeve, and a poster for the 
Live Aid rock concerts in aid 
of African famine. 

This year’s prize money, at 
£17,800, is the most ever 
awarded at a summer exhibi- 
tion. The £3,500 award for the 
most distinguished work in tire 
exhibition has gone to 
“Thames 1986", by Jeffrey 
Camp, a thundery view of the 
London skyline tyitii two node 
figures in the foreground. 

Although there are fewer 
abstracts than recent years, an 
award for exceptional merit 
was given to an impenetrable 
canvas by John Hoyland ap- 
propriately entitled “Don't 
Explain 14 .253".

Party chief 
beaten by 
Dutch poll 

The Hague (Reuter) - The 
Dutch Liberal Party will chose 
a new leader after the comple- 
tion of negotiations for the 
renewing of its alliance with 
the Christian Democrats of 
Mr Ruud Lubbers, the Prime 

The junior partner in the 
ruling centre-right coalition 
decided to replace Mr Ed 
Nijpels after losing a quarter 
of its parliamentary seats in 
last week's general election. 

Mr Jan Kamminga, the 
chairman of the Liberal Party, 
said Mr Nijpels would make 
way for a new parliamentary 

Mr Nijpels. aged 36, has led 
the right-wing party since 
1982 when he steered it to 
strong electoral gains. 

But after last week’s elec- 
tion. in which the Liberals lost, 
nine seats to finish with 27, he 
immediately came under fire. 

Anew generation 
of pragmatists 

From Michael Bmyon, Washington 

Young Americans today arc 
markedly more conservative 
and less idealistic than early 
generations, are optimistic, 
eager for material success, 
increasingly indifferent to so- 
cial service and community 
actions and tend to admire 
President Reagan. 

This picture emerges from 
various surveys of young 
people's attitudes, including 
one published in The H'ash- . 
ington Post yesterday. 

The polls, which covered 
young adults of various races, 
dasses and incomes, revealed 
a generation that scorned the 
ironic, uncertain.- contempla- 
tive and idealistic - while ad- 
miring the quick, active; clear- 
cut and pragmatic. 

It preferred symbol to. 
words, films to books, televi- 
sion to newspapers and the 
present to the past or future. 

In marked contrast to the 

1960s, young Americans to- 
day are remarkably 

A recent annual survey of 
college freshmen found that 
whereas in 1967 83 percent of 
students listed “developing a 
meaningful philosophy of' 
life" as an essential or very 
important goal only 43 per- 
cent say that now. In 1967 43 

S er cent listed “being well off 
nancially" as essential; that 
has now risen to 71 per cent. 

The latest Washington Post 
polls, however, showed that 
while 1 8/25-year-olds were 
markedly more optimistic - 
especially on the status of 
blacks and their own financial 
situation — they shared liberal 
altitudes of earlier generations 
on social issues. 

$ome 66 per cent approved 
of unmarried men and women 
living together as against 19 
per cent disapproving.

Wool worth Iasi night reject- 
ed a- claim by bidders Dixons 
that' the business was not 
worth £10 a share. 

Dixons, which is strongly 
tipped to raise its' offer worth 
673p a share, had dampened 
City speculation that it was 
going to dramatically increase 
its terms. 

A Wool worth spokesman 
said : “ We think their existing 
offer is a non-starter and they 
now appear to be saying that 
they are not prepared to make, 
a realistic offer. Even £10 a 
share would be quite unac- 
ceptable to the board and this 
view is backed up by indepen- 
dent brokers' comments. Dix- 
ons' ought to make up their 
minds as to whether they are 
serious about this bid or not." i

Morgan Grenfell to make 
tender offer of 32m shares 

Morgan Grenfell, the mer- 
chant hank, yesterday dis- 
closed that its' capital- raising 
excercjsc. announced nearly 
two weeks ago, would take the 
form of a tender offer in order 
to ensure a .“satisfactory” 
market in the shares. The 
offer, from one of the City's 
most respected banks, will 
f 9 llowa one for one capitaliza- 
tion issue for existing 

The offer of 32 million new 
ordinary shares will take place 
as soon as possible after the 
bank has held an extraordi- 
nary - meeting on June 17, an 
announcement from Morgan 
Grenfell said. The striking 
price — the price at which the 
shares will be sold to appli- 
cants — will be decided by ibe 
bank and its stockbrokers, 
Cazenove, • according to stock 
market conditions prevailing 
at the lime. 

By Richard Thomson, Bulking Correspondent 

At the same time the bank's 
latest shareholder, Willis 
Faber, the insurance broker, 
said that it would not allow its 
holding to be significantly 
diluted by the share issue. 

Morgan Grenfell, whose 
chairman is Lord Cano, an- 
nounced as early as March 
that ft might seek a Stock 
Exchange listing and try to 
raise about £100 million of 
new capital after the failure of 
its bid to merge with Exco, the 
moneybroker. which would 
have brought it nearly £400 
million in cash. The bank is 
increasingly in need of extra 
capital to back its aggressive 
corporate finance operations 
and its move into the securi- 
ties markets. 

The offer will increase the 
authorized ordinary share 
capital from £75 million to 
£210 million and the issued 
ordinary share capital from 

£60 million to £1 50.5 million. 

Morgan Grenfell is using 
the tender offer method, 
where applicants are invited 
to bid for shares at or above a 
stated price, to establish an 
orderly market in the shares 
and to enable it to allot shares 
to achieve “an appropriate 
spread and profile of 

Mr Peter Toeman, of the 
stockbroker Phillips & Drew, 
said: “There will be a lot of 
demand for the shares because 
most institutions will want 
them. The tender ensures thai 
the offer does not go to too 
much of a premium”. 

Morgan Grenfell has a high 
reputation in the City as one 
of the most innovative and 
profitable of the merchant 

The tender is also likely to 
bring the Morgan Grenfell

US Offer Rv Alien F.ifiV ® 

Marley, the building materi- 
als group, yesterday said it was 
making an agreed lender offer 
worth $93.9 million (£62.4 
million) for General Shale 
Products Corporation, a Unit- 
ed Slates brick manufacturer 
based in Tennessee. 

The deal looks bound to 
succeed as General Shale has a 
built-in defence against a hos- 
tile bidder. It has granted 
Marley an option to acquire 
2.8 minion authorized but 
unissued shares, which in 
addition to the 20 per cent 
pledged by General Shal e's 
directors, would give Marley 
58 per cent of the enlarged 

The option is also activated 
if Marley's tender at $30 a 
share gains less than 30 per 
cent acceptances. 

General Shale's pretax prof- 
its in 1985 were $1 1.5 million 
on sales ~of $82.6 million. 
First-quarter 1 986 profits were 
a record $1.8 million. 

The acquisition comes hard 
on the heels of Marley's £55 
million purchase last month 
ofThermalite, Britain's largest 
concrete block maker. 

After the American acquisi- 
tion Marley's borrowings will 
be 30 per cent of shareholders'

yesterday's extraordinary 

Mr Oliver Dawson, the 
chairman of Foreign and -Co- 
lonial Management which has 
a 0.4 per cent stake in Allied, 
asked the board to extricate

He expressed concern about 
the potential dilution of

Another shareholder asked 
about the high level of good-

Sir Derrick Holden-Brown,

regarded the price .for the 
acquisition as right and 

He acknowledged it includ-

Monopolies Commission. 

He urged shareholders not 
to be distracted by the “con- 
tinuing barrage of abuse - and 
innuendo from the Elders

nothing more than a 
smokescreen to divert atten-

Battle for 
still open 

From Stephen Taylor, 

Mr Robert Holmes a Court 
appeared to be still short of his 
share target when his latest bid 
for control of Broken Hill 
Proprietary closed last night 
After comparatively sub- 
dued dealing as the deadline 
for the bid approached, ana- 
lysis estimated that the offer— 
$9.20 a share — had only 
increased the Bell chairman's 
holding in BHP from about 18 
to about 25 per cent 
But his chances of winning 
what is being described as “the 
biggest poker game in 
Australia's history'' are still 
thought to have been im- 
proved by the Monday ruling 
of the National Companies 
and Securities Commission 
that ibe purchase of about 4 
per cent of BHP stock by 
Equiticorp Tasman was 

The NCSC decided that the 
deal by Equiticorp last week 
was intended to assist Mr

possible breach of the take- 
over code. A court case is

New Yoric. .. .. 

One of die City's longest 
running takeover sagas moved 
back on to the centre stage 
yesterday when the world's 
largest hotel chain, 
Trusthouse Forte, resumed 
hostilities with the Savoy Ho- 
tel group, owners of Ciaridge's 
and the Connaught 
The battle took just two 
hours and ended, predictably, 
in defeat for Trusthouse Forte 
which said: “We will be back 
to fight another day.” 
Trusthouse had narrowly 
failed to prevent the Savoy 
from winning approval from 
shareholders to issue more 
shares to make acquisitions. 

Trust bouse bid for the Sa- 
voy in 1981 and got 70 per cent 

of’ the equity. But because of 
the archaic voting structure 

with two classes of shares it 
could only muster 42 per cent 
of the votes- 

So w hen it got wind of the 
latest move by the Savoy to 
increase its share capital it 
feared that its own holding 
could be further dilated if the 
Savoy handed out more of the

A task force or Trusthouse 
Forte executives despatched 
yesterday to the special meet- 
ing called in the ornate sur- 
roundings of the Savoy's River 
Room also failed to flush out 
the identity of a so-called 
“concert party” of sharehold- 
ers allegedly controlling a key 
stake in the Savoy. 

Mr George Proctor, the 
Trusthouse director leading 
the assault, inquired who 
might end up owning any 
shares issued to buy a business 
— and whether they might 
eventually end up in hands 
friendly to the “concert party.” 

The Savoy chairman Sir 
Anthony Take said Savoy had 
no plans to change the balance 
between the two classes of 
shares - but said be could give 
no undertakings about where 
any shares might end up. And 
he said : “It is no part of our

he refused to allow the ques-

tors were members of any

“That question is out of 
order,” he told the meeting. 

The exchange between the 
two sides appeared to leave the 
majority of ordinary share- 
holders as bemused bystand- 
ers. One shareholder said:“I 
only know- my shares would

Thatcher door stays 
closed to the EMS 

Time may already have run out for 
taking sterling into the European 
Monetary’ System, at least this side of 
the general election. The pound 
behaved yesterday as if part of an even 
lighter currency arrangement than the 
EMS, becalmed at DM3.42, and at 
76.2 on the sterling index. However, 
i t remains free — despite strong 
rumours before the weekend of an 
impending move into the EMS. 

These, like many of their prede- 
cessors. suffered on closer examina- 
tion. notably of last week's cut in base 
rates and the Prime Minister's ab- 
sence in Israel. But the market talk on 
EMS entry was right to focus on the 
fact that, if sterling is to be taken into 
the exchange rate mechanism, there is 
not much time left to do it 

Before the elections earlier this 
month, at local level and in two 
Parliamentary seats, EMS watchers in 
Whitehall had pencilled in mid-July 
as the deadline for full .British 
membership. After that, the argument 
ran. holidays and then political pres- 
sures in the general election run-up 
would stand in its way. 

The Government’s uncertain show- 
ing in the polls means that the 
political uncertainties have started 
early, even though the actual results 
may have persuaded Mrs Thatcher to 
wait until nearer the summer of 1 988 
before going to the country. 

Plenty of advice on the EMS has 
been received, most of it — including 
that from the Chancellor — in favour 
of joining. But the campaign against, 
while less public, has been continuing. 
Broadly, this falls into two main 

The first presents the EMS as 
essentially a market-distorting institu- 
tion supportable only with capital 
controls and possessing, as Sir Alan 
Walters has argued, a fundamental 
tendency in which the economic 
performance of members, rather than 
coming together, diverges. 

The second focuses on the political 
disadvantages of joining at a time 
when the the talk, increasingly, will be 
of dose elections and hung par- 
liaments. A devaluation is a devalua- 
tion, even if it is called an EMS 
realignment and governments tend 
not to like them. Thus, the better the 
Opposition showing in the opinion 
polls the more — if we were we in the 
EMS — the pressure for sterling 
devaluations, which in turn could hit 
the Government's showing. 

There is the additional point that, as 
in the post-war fixed exchange rate 
era. EMS membership would limit the 
freedom of action on interest rales — 
and threaten damaging increases — 
while throwing out the possibility of 
splashing out loo much in a pre- 
election public spending drive. 

The policy is thus the familiar one 
of “shadowing the EMS" — staying 
within a reasonably narrow range 
against the mark but adjusting that 
range when conditions, for example 
oil prices, change. Supporters of this 
policy argue that it carries many of the 
advantages of full EMS membership 
but none of the dangers. 

A last push is being made in some 
quarters to gel Britain in. but even the 
strongest supporters of the EMS will 

not be surprised to find that the door 
of Number 10 Downing Street ap- 
pears firmly dosed. 

Rough ride for SIB 

The Securities and Investments 
Board, the body at the apex of the new 
self regulatory regime proposed by the 
^Financial Services Bill is not having 
an easy ride with the dozen or so 
professional bodies which the Bill 
envisages can be bought within the 

For professionals who carry on 
investment business incidental to 
their profession the Bill provides an 
alternative to the normal requirement 
of authorization. Instead, if their 
professional body applies to the SIB to 
become a Recognised Professional 
Body (RPB) and is accepted, then 
membership of that body will be 

Recognition however is not handed 
down cheaply. The Bill itself provides 
that the SIB will need to be satisfied 
that the professional body's rules 
provide a level of protection equiva- 
lent to the SIB's own conduct of 
business rules. It would also want to 
see that the body had adequate 
monitoring and disciplinary arrange- 
ments and provisions for the handling 
of complaints. 

The system of having RPBs has 
clear administrative advantages over 
the alternative of requiring each 
professional firm to seek authoriza- 
tion. Also, it carries the benefits 
allowing like to police like, with the 
SIB as the vital outide overseer. 

The professional bodies however 
are greatly concerned at the powers 
which the SIB. which is after all a new 
and private sector body, will have 
over their long-established rule books. 
They are concerned that the SIB will 
be given power to substitute one of its 
own rules for one of their own. and 
that the Bill is only the thin edge of the 
wedge which will end up with the SIB 
being given increased powers over the 
parts of their rule book not concerned 
with investment activities. 

The SIB is highly unlikely to have 
the time or resources to step outside 
the investment arena. Paranoia and 
the ivory* tower mentality should not 
be allowed to hinder the vital prin- 
ciple of there being equivalent levels 
of protection across the whole spec- 
trum of investment activity. 

The professional bodies are perhaps 
also concerned that the SIB will want 
to see their rules beefed up in places in 
order to secure recognition. 

In the last analysis it may be 
possible to reach some compromise 
along the lines of what appears to be 
current thinking at the Department of 
Trade and Industry. This would mean 
the introduction of an intermediate 
power giving the SIB the right to apply 
for a court order requiring an RPB to 
bring its rules into line. Further than 
this the Government should not go. 

RPBs will be a vital part of investor 
protection — many professionals have 
more direct contact with the public 
than authorized advisers. If further

FKI makes the 



FKI’s success is based on a 
simple formula. In the some- 
what un glamorous specialist 
electrical engineering sector ft 
has identified a market op- 
portunity, developed a strate- 
gy to exploit it. and gone after 
it with determination. 

As a result, it has seen its 
share price leap from I7'/2p in 
October 1983, when it was 
granted a full listing on the 
Stock Exchange, to 84p to- 
day. taking its market capital- 
ization to just under £100 

It seeks to acquire small 
electronic or light mechanical 
engineering companies, usu- 
ally wholly owned subsidiar- 
ies of much larger companies, 
with good products. General- 
ly. gross margins will be good, 
but the companies will usual- 
ly be loss-making at the net 
level due to the weight of 
coporate overhead. As the 
chairman, Tony GartJand, 
pul it. if there is a good gross 
profit there is no reason why 
there should not be a good net 

A string of acquisitions last 
year. £10.5 million worth, 
helped the company to boost 
its pretax profit by 66 per cent 
from £3.5 million to £5.7 
million in the 12 months to 
March 31. 1986. Turnover 
was up 73 per cent to £32 
million. Of this, over J5 per 
cent was organic growth. 

Following the latest acqui- 
sition of the engineering and 
1 components business of 
Thorn EMI for £1 1.65 mil- 
lion, FKI now consists of four 
main divisions averaging £20 
million turnover each. Its 
ambition is to add one more, 
in an as yet unidentified 
electrical engineering sector, 
to give it five dissimilar 
product markets. 

A rights issue last year and 
a vendor placing of 25.6 
million shares for the Thorn 
subsidiary leaves FKI still 
ungeared' and with just over 
£1 million to play with. This 
year's profits will benefit 
from a full year's contribu- 
tion from earlier acquisitions, 
Poppe and the TI companies. 
Cabieform and the Thorn 
EMI companies should start 
to make a contribution in the 
second half. 

Pretax profit of £7.5 mil- 
lion in the year to Mart* 31 
1987 implies that earnings 
per share will grow at 21 per 
cent after taking into account 
the shares issued for Thom 
EMI. This puts the shares cm 
a prospective multiple of 15, 
but much depends on the 
speed with which manage- 
ment can integrate its 


with profits expected to be 
coming through from its pro- 
posed five-division structure 

by mid-1987, the group is 
iment on building a track 
record which will enable it to 
make a quantum leap. The 
shareholders wiH need to 
trust the management not to 
leap over a cliff but on 
present form their trust is 
unlikely to be misplaced. 



The stock market is taking its 
time to recognize the impor- 
tance of last week's deal with 
Harris Queensway and Great 
Universal Stores. So far 
Gussies' “A" shares have 
risen by only 20p to £1 0.6Qp. 

As well as suggesting a 
solution to the . .potential 
problem of succession at 
GUS, the deal throws up an 
interesting anomaly in- the 
share ratings accorded re- 
spectively to GUS and Harris 
Queensway. With the chair- 
man. Sir Isaac Wolison, aged 
88 and his son. Lord 
Wolison, aged 59, investors 
had become concerned about 
the future of the group. The 
appointment of 44-year-old 
Sir Philip Harris to GUS's 
board should put an end to 
these worries. 

As pan of the deal GUS 
acquired 23 per cent of Harris 
Queensway. It will therefore 
be able to treat Harris 
Queensway as an associate 
company and include 23 per 
cent of Harris Queensway’s 
profit in its reported result 

While gaining 23 per cent 
of Harris Queensway's profit 
GUS will lose the contribu- 
tion of Times Furnishing and 
Home Chaim, both of which 
it is selling to Harris 
Queensway. The precise con- 
tribution of the two business- 
es is in question as audited 
figures are not available, but 
it is likely to be less than 23 
per cent of Harris 
Queensway's profits that will 
replace iL 

Mr John Chataway, of the 
brokers Kitcat & Aitken, 
expects Harris Queensway to 
make £60 million in the year 
to December 1987, allowing 
for its recent rights issue and 
the inclusion of Times Fur- 
nishing and Home Charm. 
That makes its prospective 
p/e ratio 16 fully diluted with 
the shares at 254p. 

By contrast GUS is trading 
bn 1 2 times forecast earnings 
for the year to March 1987. 
Mr Chataway expects it to 
have made £291 million in 

the yearto March 1986 and he 
is forecasting £334 million for 
the current year. 

It seems likely that Sir 
Philip will in lime apply the 
same entrepreneurial flair to 

GUS that he has applied at 

Harris Queensway. If so the 
discrepancy in the two 
companies' share ratings is 
bound to narrow. 

D pnhil l 

Dunhill Holdings has much 
in common with its quality 
customers. Like the best of 
them, it has plenty of cash 
and would like to buy more 
luxury goods. Its commercial 
interest is in acquiring pres- 
tige brands wh ich it can 
develop internationally, but 
its search is slow and long. 

The general strategy, is 
clearly successful. Profits rose 
from £15.1 million to £20.1 
million last year, on sales up 
from £117 million to £130 

At the year end Dunhill 
had net cash of £35.9 million, 
up from £16.6 million. Ad- 
mittedly. ihe year end figure 
represents a seasonal peak, 
with the average for the year 
nearer the opening than clos- 
ing balance, but it accounts 
for 17 per cent of the 
company's market capitaliza- 

The cash allowed Dunhill 
to -increase its dividend by 45 
per cent to a total of -5.5p, 
against a 41 percent increase 
in earnings per share. The 
dividend was covered 5.4 
times so shareholders can 
expect another big increase in 
the present year, assuming 
the company does not make a 
big acquisition. 

Even if it does succeed in 
its search, the effect could 
take time to feed through to 

At the same time as scour- 
ing the country for suitable 
purchases, the company is 
spending capital on Dunhill, 
the original business taking in 
lighters and other products 
for men, and Montblanc, the 
pen manufacturing opera- 
tion, which showed the best 
sales improvement m the 
group last year. 

Both businesses should do 
well this year, with Lane, the 
tobacco company in the 
United States likely to do no 
belter than hold its own. 

Overall, the company 
could be pressed to keep up 
last year's 

Stripping out the cash from 
profits and the share price 
leaves the shares, at 
498p. trading on a prospective 
multiple of only 1 1 , assuming 
operating profits grow by 25 
per cent in the present year. 

Even though there is little 
speculative interest, with 
Rothmans International 
holding 51 per cent of the 
shares, that rating looks un- 
suitably dowdy. . 

to develop 

By Judith Huntley 
Commercial Property 

The Spitalfields Develop- 
ment Group, a consortium of 
London &. Edinburgh Trust, 
the developer, and Balfour 
Beatty, the construction com- 
pany. plans to redevelop the 
site occupied by the 300-year- 
old Spitalfields Market on the 
edge of the City of London 
with a multi-million pound 
office, retail and residential 

Talks are underway with the 
City of London Corporation, 
owner of the 14 acre site, 
about moving the fruit vege- 
table and flower market to a 
location owned by LET three 
miles away at Temple Mills, a 
former British Rail engineer- 
ing works. 

The market traders favour 
.the move and the developer 
has asked the corporation to 
look into the feasibility of its 
proposals which include keep- 
ing the Horner market build- 
ings and protecting the view of 
Christ Church, which was 
built by Hawkesmoor. 

The London Borough of 
Tower Hamlets, in whose area 
Spitalfields is located, is con- 
sulting the public about the 
future of the area. 

LET will submit a planning 
application for the site once 
that process is complete. 

The developer is not alone 
in wanting to redevelop 
Spitalfields to take advantage 
of big bang, which is causing 
financial conglomerates to 
lake large amounts of office 

Rosehaugh/Stanhope. the 
developer of nearby Broadgate 
at Liverpool Streei station is 
also looking at the area. 

The City Corporation may 
put the site out to tender, 
hoping that keen competition 
wifi result in a high price being 
paid for the site. 

Sell-off speculation 
fails to liven up 
Lonrho share price 

Speculation in a rather sub- 
dued market yesterday sug- 
gested that Tiny Rowland's 
international trading group 
Lonrbo was dose to selling on 
pan of its South African 
interests in a multi-million 
pound deal. 

Dealers are convinced that 
Lonrho has been having secret 
talks with Mr - Harry 
Oppenbeim's Anglo American 
Corporation for some time, if 
completed the deal could be 
worth $400 million (£26 1 
million) to Lonrho and would

increased demand with its new 
ultra-modern factory in Man-

now re rating the shares and 
looking^ for pretax profits of

lion for the year to March just

to Lonrho shares. 

The renewed speculation in 
the City about Lonrho's inten- 
tions followed a visit by some 
of the Lonrho board to the 
offices of Chase Manhattan 
Securities, one of the bigger 
dealing houses to emerge from 
the recent spate of City merg- 
ers. But shares of Lonrho 
failed to reflect the underlying 
speculation, dosing only lp 
firmer at 254p. Only a few 
weeks ago the price had traded 
as high as 274p amid growing 
bid speculation. 

Michael Clark, who has an 
outstanding reputation as a 
market reporter, has joined 
The Times as senior stock 
market correspondent the 
first of several new appoint- 
ments designed to give readers 
the best duly coverage of the 

Many fund managers be- 
lieve that Lonrho shares may 
now start to rise after the 
expiry of the May traded 
options today. Speculators 
will be forced either to take up 
their options, or cash them in. 
This will bring a sigh of relief 
to many jobbers who appear 
to have worked hard to keep 
the speculators under pres- 
sure. Dealers are already talk- 
ing the Lonrho share price up 
to 300p in the weeks ahead. 

The rest of the equity 
market appeared to be taking 
an extended holiday break 
with turnover down to a 
trickle and investors cautious 
about opening new positions 
towards the tail-end of the 
long three week account. The 
wave of selling on the French 
Bourse on Monday did little 
help sentiment .Asa result the 
FT 30-share index closed 6.6 
down at 1.342.8. having been 
more than 10 points down 
earlier in the dav. The broader 
hased FT-SE 10 0 fared little 
better finishing 5.3 lower at

Japan is 

From David Watts 

Japan replaced Britain as 
the world’s biggest net creditor 
Iasi year. 

. The ministry' of finance here 
reported yesterday that 
Japan's balance sheet for 1985 
showed $129.8 billion worth 
of official and private assets 
abroad in excess of liabilities 
at the end of last year. That 
total was $55.5 billion or 
almost 75 per cent more than 
in 1984. 

The ministry estimated 
British net external assets at 
$90 billion Iasi year and West 
Germany's at ’ $50 billion. 
United States liabilities were 
estimated at $60 billion. 

Japan's gross external assets 
were up by 28.3 per cent. but 
at $437.7 billion they still 
trailed both Britain and the 
US. The figure for Britain was 
$712.2 and for the US $914.7. 

A third of Japan's external 
total comprised stock and 
bond investments, mostly in 
the US. The balance of such 
portfolio investments, total- 
ling SI 45.7 billion, was up by 
66.4 per cent. 



Our article of May 19 
entitled “Auditors walk light- 
rope over ‘hidden* figures", 
about the prevalence of 
“improving" company ac- 
counts by hiding poor results, 
referred 'to a Department of 
Trade and Industry finding 
that “Corn hill’s" accounting 
had been "unusually 
deceptive". We are glad to 
make it clear, and we accept, 
that the company criticized 
was Cornhill Consolidated, 
liquidated in 1974. and not the 
well-known .and wholly un- 
connected Cornhill Insurance 
pic. to which we apologize for 
any confusion caused.

• WHIM CREEK: Tlie com- 
pany says that it intends m 1 986 
to consolidate and further 
strengthen its position as the 
primary gold producer in the 
Mcekaibana area of western 
Australia. The chairman. Mr 
Patrick J Hughes, says in the

production target for 1986 is 

40.000 oz from its Meekatharra 
operations. The plant produced 
38.086 oz in 1985. 

SOURCES: The company, 

which began gold production at 
its Cork Tree Well mine last 
month, expects to run at a 
capacity of 30.000 oz a year by 
the end of June. A total of 

18.000 oz of gold is planned for 

the nine months to December 
31. 1986. according to the

On June 10th, at a luncheon at the Savoy, 
British business will have a lot to digest. 

Its leaders will sit in judgement on their own 
ability to communicate. 

The topmost brass from Britain’s top 100 
companies and the City will be served the most 
authoritative survey to date on corporate com- 

Communications? Isn’t that the subject that 
Chief Executives hand swiftly down the line? 

Evidently, not any more. As our survey clearly 

We sought and got views from the highest 
levels of industry and commerce; from the City 
Parliament and the financial media; and from a 
broad spectrum of private and institutional 

From such a disparate sample* there was a 
surprising amount of agreement: 

Corporate communications matter a lot, 
and are likely to matter more in future. 

Indeed, they're key to corporate policy- 

Now you’d expect to hear thatfrom people in 

PR, advertising and the media. 

But the London Standard Survey is unique 
in questioning the people who pay for the cam- 
paigns and the people they’re aimed at. 

Names are named. Punches aren't pulled. 

Among the subjects probed for us by financial 
communications firm Dewe Roger son: 

What lessons can be learned from recent 
bloody take-over battles? 

How are communications involved in the 
spectacular spread of share-ownership? 

And what of life after Big Bang? Will you 
wake up to find your company owned by parties 
unknown on the far side of the world? 

If you’re concerned with any kind of corporate 
communications, investor relations or the strate- 
gies of corporate acquisition or defence, you 
should read the London Standard Survey. 

Following its introduction on June 10th, we'll 
be holding a seminar on the 27th to go into it 
more deeply. 

If you’d like a copy of the survey, telephone 
01-353 0355. 

And judge the whole business for yourself.

Shrinking market share forces re think on prices and promotion 

Co-op to shake up sales strategy 

By Derek Harris, Industrial Editor 

The co-operative movement 
is launching an attempt to pull 
together an overall marketing 
and development strategy 
which could lead to increased 
spending on national promo- 
tion and a new edge to Co-op 

The strategy will be in the 
hands of a new Co-op trade 
committee consisting of the 
chief executives of the nine 
biggest retail societies and of 
the retail division of the 
Co-operative Wholesale Soci- 
ety (CWS). the 10 together 
accounting for 60 per cent or 
more of all Coop trade. 

Steering the committee as 
chairman will be Mr Dennis 
Landau, chief executive of 
CWS, the movement’s most 
powerful organization, finan- 
cially and traditionally the 
provider of goods and services 
to retail societies. 

The initiative emerged at 
Llandudno asthe Co-operative 
Congress, the co-op move- 
ment’s annual parliament 
heard trading reports which 
showed that last year the Co-op 
again lost market share de- 
spite increased sales. 

It now has 4.9 per cent of 
the total retail markeL com- 
pared with 5.1 per cent the 
year before as societies contin- 
ued to wipe out the legacy of 
older and often smaller 

Co-op turnover at £4,850 
million was up 5.1 per cent 
and its surplus or profits rose 
14.6 per cent to £47 million. 
Reserves have also jumped 
more than a fifth to £413 

Mr Garth Pratt, economic 
and research officer of the 
Co-operative Union, the orga- 
nizing body for the move- 
ment, said: "Steady progress is 
now being made but trading 
performance is stiU not as 
good as it ought to be. The 
level of competition is now so 
formidable that we have to 
run very fast to maintain our 
position. But we have restruc- 
tured to a remarkable extent, 
with the future of the move- 
ment already lying with the 
biggest 25 societies”. 

The biggest 22 societies now 
account lor more than three 
quarters of Co-op trade, and 
the 30 smallest for only 0.S per 

Dennis Landan: margins 
from CWS under fire 

cent There are now 95 retail 
societies. Co-operative Retail 
Services (CRS), the biggest 
Co-op retailer, is responsible 
for 20 per cent of total Co-op 
turnover and the CWS retail 
division for nearly 1 0 per cent 
Trading profits of the soci- 
eties as a proportion of sales 
has improved only slightly, 
moving from 1 per cent m 
19S4 to 1.1 percent last year. 

The benchmark for healthy 
trading has been put at 2.5 per 
cent Of the top two dozen 

societies about half already 
.have profits running at this 
level with about half a dozen 
halfway there and as many 
again fighting their way out of 
adversity. Mr Pratt said. 

On trading, Mr Pratt said 
there were wide disparities in 
individual performance by all 
the retail societies. He added: 
"There are tremendously en- 
couraging and strong achieve- 
ments. There are also those 
which are still apparently 
struggling against the tide. 
Regrettably for most of those 
it seems unlikely that the tide 
will turn”. 

It is against this background 
that the new committee is 
being launched to overcome 
the Co-op'scen iral com merrial 
problem, its efforts being dis- 
persed among so many retail 

Two key issues are expected 
to be tackled by the commit- 
tee. One is profit margins after 
criticisms about those on offer 
from the CWS. 

Mr Bill Farrow, this year’s 
congress president who is also 
chief executive of CRS, com- 
plained in a key speech about 
the handicap presented by 
CWS. a clear reference to 

rather poorer margins which 
can be on offer from CWS 
compared with those available 
in a big society buying direct 
from manufacturers and im- 
porters as do the big multiples 
like J. Sainsbury and Tesco 

The committee is also ex- 
pected to look at the problem 
of achieving a common ap- 
proach among key societies to 
the branding of main trading 
concepts from superstores to 
new-style convenience outlets 
to which small Co-op shops are 
being increasingly converted. 

The Co-op last year increased 
its number of superstores to 

The CWS has long been 
frustrated over the prolifera- 
tion of different names given 
by societies to what are essen- 
tially the same concepts, less- 
ening the chances of setting up 

-national promotions, 
rill pul 

This Mil put the launching 
of new national promotions, 
including advertising cam- 
paigns, high on the agenda of 
the new committee. 

The congress yesterday 
called for the CWS as a 
manufacturer to continue to 
reduce additives in foods. 




Time for the LME to stop complaining 

The outburst from Mr Jac- 
ques Lion, chairman of the 
London ' Metal Exchange 
board, was an understandable 
err de coear. The exchange 
and its members took a severe 
battering during the tin crisis. 
They had barely emerged 
from the shelters and wiped 
the sweat from under their tin 
hats before the second wave 
of bombers, this time bearing 
die nnmistakeable insignia of 
the Securities and Divest- 
ments Board, darkened the 

Indignation at seeming to 
be everyone's target is a 
natural reaction, especially 
for a body with snefa strongly 
conservative instincts. But 
Mr Lion’s agitation, I fear, 
did neither him nor the 
exchange credit Let me re- 
mind you of what be said. 

By settling oatstanding 
contracts on which the Inter- 
national Tin Council’s mem- 
bers had defaulted, Mr Lion 
said that LME members 
"demonstrated to the world at 
large and, in particular, to the 
22 defaulting sovereign na- 
tions comprising the Tin 
CotmriL what the sanctity of 
contract means.” 

He said: “You may find it 
somewhat ironic that in those 
circumstances Her Majesty's 
Government finds it neces- 
sary to introduce somewhat 
Draconian measures to pro- 

tect private investors from the 
machinations of onr mem- 
bers. Who, I wonder, is to 
protect the markets of the 
Gty of London from the 
depredations of governments? 

“So, at a time when we 
should be receiving every 
possible assistance to rebuild 
and restore confidence in onr 
market as a result of the tin 
crisis, we are having to pro- 
tect our market from the 
demands of government that 
we should abandon our 
principal’s contract which 
has served industry well for 
over a century, for a clearing 
house market which the trade 
has emphatically stated it 
does not wish to see, particu- 
larly in view of the higher 
costs involved.” 

Now the exegesis begins. 
There is no doubt that the 
LMETs members eventually 
did what they could to defend 
sanctity of contract, although 
the LME and the banks 
might differ abont who pro- 
vided the idea of the final 
exchange of cheques, and 
about how efficiently it was 
carried out The point was 
that the members paid np and 
the ITC, or rather its mem- 
bers, did not. 

Bnt what is the logical 
connection between that cred- 
itable event and government 
measures to protect private 
investors which makes the 

Jacdne$ Lion: ’Sanctity of 
contract demonstrated' 

latter “ironic”? Apart from 
the general and ancient senti- 
ment that if governments 
cannot be trusted in one 
sphere they cannot be trusted 
in another, the answer is: Not 

The riren instances are very 
different For a start the 
British Government did not 
want to default on its ITC 
obligations. It is only tarred 
with the same brush as those 
who did want io default 
because the machinery of. the 
ITC prevented it from reach- 
ing a separate agreement, 

prevent malpractices, depre- 
dations and worse in the City 
at the expense of private 

The LME has in the past 
been the first to admit that 
the little oversights of 
Doxfords, Imperial Commod- 
ities era/ damaged the rep nta- 
tion of commodities and 
futures trading as a whole. 

The best possible protec- 
tion for the private investor is 
presumably inherently desir- 
able even if, as Mr Lion 
rightly implies, there is no 
final protection against gov- 
ernments. There never has 
been and there never will be. 
Mr Lion is not the first to ask, 
Serf quis custodial ipsos custo- 
dy? (Bnt who wifi guard the 
guardians themselves?). 

By the same token history 
is Uttered with huge corporate 
and business defaults in 
which wicked governments 
played no part. The 
principal's contract offers no 
immunity against that 

Yet, even if the Govern- 
ment had been an enthusias- 
tic defaulter, it does not follow' 
that it should not attempt to 

Nor, as Mr Lion alleges, is 
the Government 

"de manding ” that the LME 

abandons its principal's con- 
tract, however long it has 
existed. It is troe that the SIB 
criteria for a Recognized In- 
vestment Exchange — sent 
out incidentally, in January 
and so far unanswered offi- 
cially by the LME — set great 

store by clearing bosses of a 
kind so far entirely foreign to 
the LME. 

But LME members them- 
selves, in various papers, 
have suggested solutions to 
this problem, including effec- 
tively setting np two markets, 
one for futures business and 
another physical market for 
trade business. 

The real due to the IMS's 
objections lies in the squeals 
from trade (industrial) users 
of die exchange who do not 
want the extra cost a clearing 
house would involve. In that 
Mr Lion is certainly correct: 

Gearing houses, however, 
are commonplace today, and 
futures business around the 
world flourishes. Why Lon- 
don should be different is 
baffling. And plenty of LME 
members agree. An LME 
sub-committee will today re- 
port on thechanges in organi- 
zation required by the LME 
to meet tins SIB criteria for an 

What Mr lion meant by 
“receiving every possible as- 
sistance to rebaOd and restore 
confidence in onr market” is 
obscure. -Not help^from the 
iniquitous Government sorely 

The LME should build on 
its robust tradition of self 
help, recognize that a new 
regulatory regime is upon ns 
and stop complaining.

Yearly pay 

may end, 
says CBI 

By David Young 

The annual wage increase 
could become a thing of the 
the Confederation of 

Eritish Industry (CBI) says hi 
published today. 

a report pub — __ .. 

The employers’ o: 
tion' says the : annual pay 
review, taken for granted dur- 
ing the period of high infla- 
tion, was now the subject of 
review in many companies. 
For many there may be better 
ways of determining proper 
pay levels, it says. 

Employers are being asked 
by the CBI for their comments 
on the proposals by the Chan- 
cellor, Mr Nigel Lawson, to 
introduce a profit-linked pav 
system under which at least 20 
per cent of an employee’s pay 
would be linked to profits. 

The CBI says such a scheme 
would improve the commit- 
ment and involvement of the 

workforce in the success of 
their enterprise. It could also 
reduce upward pay pressure, 
make firms more likely to 
retain workers in difficult 
times and to recruit workers in 
better trade conditions. 

"If we paid ourselves less, 
unemployment would not be 
so high ” the CBI adds.' 

“Pay settlements on average 
are soil too high. Even allow- 
ing for further improvements 
in productivity, a further loss 
in competitiveness, . market 
share, investment and jobs is 
implied if pay settlements as a 
whole stay around today’s 
levels.” ' • 

Plastic prices 
‘should not 
be lowered’ 

A warning to Europe’s plas- 
tics manufacturers not to 
make automatic price cuts in 
response to lower feedstock 
prices caused by the slump m 
world oil prices has been given 
by Mr S D de Bree, vice- 
president of the Association of 
Plastics Materials Producers 
in Europe. 

He said that lower oil prices 
meant that the European plas- 
tics industry had improved its 
competitiveness against Mid- 
dle Eastern imports. 

Mr de Bree said: “While a 
number of our customers 
seem to expect prices for 
plastics to follow the down- 
ward trend of crude and 
feedstocks we must make clear 
that this is against the interest 
even-of those same customers 
and' of plastics manu-

man; says in his annual state- 
ment that pretax profits for the 
first four months of the current 
year, which only include three 
weeks of the benefits of the 
Pergamon Journals acquisition, 
show a substantial increase 
compared with the coir 
ing period in 1985, reflecting in 
part a significant contribution 
from the printing of the Mirror 
Group’s newspapers. The board 
is confident that, with the 
additional profits from the jour- 
nals. tbe remits for the first half 
of 1986 "will show the quantum 
leap, in BPCCS profitability for 
the current year and dem- 

onstrate its exciting prospects 
for the future.”

Despite growing public 
fears over nudear power safe-

in the Chinese wall 

3 : 

Financiers working in the 
same conglomerate need 
safeguards to avoid a 
clash of client interests 

Bnan E«vms 


¥ ene L. a wm *, b * r m City. At 
tte ttbte ase dine City characters 
ail of whom work for one of the 
new financial conglomerates 
which dominate the investment 
and securities industry in »hiy 

On e of them works for the 
corporate finance de partmen t, ad- 
vising companies on such matters 
as take-overs, share issues, and 
mergers. Another buys and sells 
shares for the conglomerate (a 
market maker), and the final one

I his combination is perfectly

• 1 . ates, which will be fully 
*' operational after the TtigBang’ 

- deregulation of {he Slock 
" Exchange. 

It dem on st ra tes the two main 
’ needs for the so-called Chinese 
wall arrangements, whereby infor- 
; mation available to one part of a 
firm is whbdd from other sec- 
, ^ tionvTbe idea is that individual 
„ sections of the firm must operate 

- within the criteria applicable to 
I, their discrete functions and not on 
-• the basis of any broader mteresL 

The corporate finance person, 

■ for instance, must not pass on any 
“ non-public information about the 
companies he deals with in his 
department to the market maker, 
r^ror indeed 10 the pension fund 
tnanager.This separation of func- 
,l lions is essential to provide a 

- defence against a charge of insider 

Segregation is also essential as a 
?s. method of resolving situations 
. * giving rise to conflicts of interest. 

For instance, the corporate fi- 
nancier may be acting for Compa- 
ny A. which is bidding for 
Company B. If the fond manager 
has shares in Company B, and is 
_ wondering what he should do with 
them, he should make his decision 

purely on an investment basis — 
wfaat is good for the pension funds 
be manages — and- hot be influ- 
enced by the needs of his colleague 
in the corporate finance -depart- 
ment. The interests of the corpo- 
rate financier and the pension 
fond manager do not necessarily 
coincide, and. may in feet conflict. 

The Chinese wall system, may 
seem implausible. Moreover the 
strict segregation it requires may 
also seem to defeat much of the 
purpose behind forming financial 
conglomerates — to group together 
various functions under the same 
legal umbrella. 

But Chinese walls, rather like 
belief in a deity, require an effort 
of faith on the part of the outrider. 
The conglomerate or firm can of 
course make this effort a tittle less 

Defence against 
insider trading 

strenuous by having rigorous com- 
pliance checks as well as arrange- 
ments such as physical separation 
of departments. Warburg Securi- 
ties. for instance, have total 
physical separation of hs asset 
management and dealing func- 
tions, with the sections also hav- 
ing separate boards.. .. 

Moreover in a world where 
institutions jump in and out of 
bed easily, and where reputation 
of financial services firms counts 
for so much, the short-term bene- 
fit of breaching a Chinese wall 
could, if detected or even only 
suspected, spell financial rain for 
the firm concerned as the institu- 
tions desert for what they consider 
are more trustworthy havens. 

It is therefore vital for firms to 
establish good compliance proce- 
dures, ensuring that employees 
are aware of what the regulations 

require and establishing the sys- 
tems and procedures, including 
Chinese walls, to see that they are 
complied with. As Stephen Raven, 
group compliance director at War- 
burg Securities, says: “Good com- 
pliance is good business.” 

At the moment the new legisla- 
tion which will govern financial 
services, and the codes of conduct 
emerging from it, are prepared to 
give Chinese walls a chance to 
prove themselves against the 

The basic principle of disclosure 
of interest underpins the Financial 
Services Bill and the draft “con- 
duct of business” rules produced 
by the Securities and Investment 

Board. In their final form these 
will provide the benchmark to 
which ail the other mini-regulators 
and sdfregulaiory organizations 
must measure up. 

The idea behind disclosure is 
that if you declare a material 
interest to a client or investor, 
then conflicts, potential or other- 
wise, are neutralized because the 
decision is m effect his. It is a 
decision based on all the relevant 
facts, and underpinned by the feet 
that he bad the opportunity not to 

Disclosure however cannot ca- 
ter for all situations, as the 
example of the three employees of 
the same conglomerate shows . 

Hence clause 45 of the Financial 
Services Bill, which sets out the 
framework for the conduct of 
business rules, says that these may 
make provision “enabling or re- 
quiring information obtained by 
an authorized person in the course 
of carrying on one part of his 
business 10 be witheld by him 
from persons with whom he deals 
in the course of carrying on yet 
another part”. 

The expression “Chinese walls’* 
is not actually enshrined in the 
Bill, but it is dear that it is these 
that it is referring to. Chinese 
walls do however get a mention in 
the Licensed Dealers (Conduct of 
Business) Rules 1 983 - a statutory 
instrument, which says that where 

the walls are in place, individuals 
may advise clients without dis- 
closing that a material interest 
exists in another pan of the firm 

Quite how deep and tall the 
Chinese walls must be remains an 
open question. The decision rests 
with the Securities and Invest- 
ments Board — the SIB — which 
will produce the conduct of busi- 
ness rules in accordance with 
Clause 45 of the Bill. The SIB. at 
the time the Bill was published, 
reiterated the general principle 
that material interests must be 
disclosed to investors, and that 
Chinese wall arrangements alone 
are not sufficient to remove this 
obligation. To do so the arrange- 
ments must achieve what they set 

out to achieve, in other words to 
be impregnable. 

The Board said that ft was 
’‘prepared 10 provide that where 
information is genuinely not 
known (o the individuals in- 
volved. directly or indirectly, in 
dealing with the customer, then 
the interest need not be disclosed. 
If the interest is not known it 
cannot affect the advice given” 

This statement was the precur- 
sor to some tough draft provisions 
for Chinese walls contained in the 
draft conduct of business rules 
issued by the SIB in February. 

These made it clear that the SIB 
warns not just Chinese wall ar- 
rangements. but also supervisory 
procedures to ensure that they are 
effective. Moreover Chinese walls 
only obviate the need for disclo- 
sure where they would mean that 
the person dealing did not know. 
nor could have known, of the 
existence of a conflict of interest. 

In other words genuine and 
understandable ignorance of a 
conflict will be excused. Genuine 
ignorance which is nevertheless 
not understandable — generally 
because the person concerned 

Disclosure also 
gives protection 

ought to be aware of the conflict — 
will not be excused. 

Chinese wall arrangements will 
of course be bolstered by the 
compliance departments which 
the conglomerates are in the 
process of developing, and by the 
provisions requiring reporting and 
publication of securities transac- 
tions. combined with the best 
execution rule. 

Segregation of functions is clear- 
ly not going 10 have an easy ride ir 
the newly established environ- 
ment. Certainly firms are develop- 
ing sysiems for securing it — as fer 
as this is possible when one is 
dealing with human beings. These 
wifi at least, along with regula- 
tions. reinforce in people's minds 
the need to avoid conflicts of

The surge in takeover activity, 
on the stock market coupled 
with the growing tendency to 
use new and more- aggressive 
tactics has created a heavy 
workload for -the takeover 
panel - the Oty body respon- 
sible for policing bid battles. 

Last year’s £9 billion worth 
of bids' looks set to be exceed- 
ed comfortably this year. The 
two biggest completed take- 
overs so "far this year 
Hanson Trust for Imperial 
and Guinness for Distillers — 
have already added up to 
more than £5 billion. Two 
more bitterly contested giant 
bids — Dixons for Wool worth 
and Lloyds Bank for Standard' 
Chartered — are now in

The great rush to go private 

The Government's privatiza- 
tion programme is now in full 
swing. Selling off state-owned 
companies is intended to raise 
nearly £20 billion over the 
next four years. 

This compares wiUt asset 
sales totalling £7.6 billion in 
the seven years since the 
Conservatives took office. 
The pace of privatization is 
hotting up but, at the same 
time, the price of failure has 
become much higher. 

There is no doubt that the 
successful flotation of British 
Telecom shares transformed 
the privatization programme 
from a cottage industry in the 
Treasury’ to the centre of the

economic policy stage. 

The Telecom issue killed 
two binb with one stone, 
transferring assets priced by 
the Government at £4 billion 
to the private sector and at the 
same time fostering wider 
share ownership. 

According to John 
Moo re, the newly appointed 
Transport secretary, and for- 
merly the financial secretary 
to theTreasury and the man 
directly responsible for priva- 
tization. wider share owner- 
ship is a key element in selling 
state assets. 

“Our strategy is that our 
first preference is generally a 
UK public offer for sale with 
guaranteed participation by 
employees and the general 
public," he told the Institute 
for International Research 
conference on privatization 
last month. 

“Sometimes, however, the 
nature of the company which 
we are selling does not make 
this a practical proposition. If 
a public offer is not possible, 
then a sale which leads to 
employees holding a major 
stake is often the next blest 

The Telecom sale encour- 
aged about one million people 

da and the Swiss Bank Corpo- 
ration, have been asked lo 
help advise on the overseas 
aspect of the British Gas sale. 

One issue the Government 
has to look to the City for 
guidance on is the method of 
sale for privatization issues. In 
crude terms, an issue by 
lender is always in danger of 
remaining with the underwrit- 
ers. while a fixed price , sale 
runs the risk that, if the share 
price subsequently rises sharp- 
ly. the Government is accused 
of selling off precious assets 

John Moore has an answer 
to the latter point “It is an 

to own shares who had never 
done so before, according to 
Treasury figures. 

David Oementi. a director 
of merchant bankers 
Kleinwon Benson, financial 
advisers to the Government 
on the British Telecom sale, 
believes that the later 
privatizations are distin- 
guished from the earlier ones 
by the realization that small 
investors, rather than just the 
major financial institutions, 
are a legitimate market for 

Government-sponsored share 

It is a lesson that will be 
carried through to the privaii- 
zation of British Gas starting 
this autumn. British Airways 
(assuming the current difficul- 
ties can be resolved), the 
National Bus Company , 
Rolls- Royce. the airports, the 
Royal Ordnance Factories, 
and looking a little further 
ahead, the privatization of the 
water boards. 

Kleinwon Benson, together 



Our record speaks for itself 

Since 1983, we at Phillips & Drew have more than doubled the number 
of our corporate clients. 

In the same period, we have acted as brokers in 36 company flotations, 
55 Rights issues and vendor platings, 12 major sterling fixed interest issues 
and many other types of corporate transactions including a significant 
number of mergers and takeovers. 

We are one of the fastest growing names in the corporate finance field - 

with Dewe Rogerson. the ad- 
vertising and public relations 
agency, embarked on an ener- 
getic campaign to entice small 
shareholders into British 
Telecom. It included regional 
co-ordinators, brochures, ad- 
vertising and roadshows. The 
BT train became a femiliar 
sight as it travelled around the 
country for several weeks. 

Having established 
shareholding in the minds of 
small investors. Telecom has 
made it easier for those that 
follow. It was noticeable that 
last year's sale of Cable & 
Wireless shares, with very 
little direct effort, attracted far 
more interest from small in- 
vestors than the previous one. 
in 1981. 

It is a message that the team 
at N M Rothschild, advising 
the Government on the priva- 
tization of British Gas. has 
taken fully on board. Whereas 
the Telecom campaign had to 
introduce potential sharehold- 
ers both to the company and 
to the idea of holding shares, 
the British Gas campaign can 
focus on the attractions of the 

British Telecom attracted 
2.3 million applications from 
shareholders. It is an unoffi- 
cial target to beat this for 
British Gas. 

The British Gas sale, ex- 
pected to raise £8 billion, is the 
major test for privatization. In 
addition to the small investor 
and UK financial institutions, 
it is almost certain that a 
significant part of the sale will 
be targeted to foreign buyers.

theorists who do not under-

after the evenL that proceeds 
should have been higher from 
a particular sale," he said. 
“They look at the market price 
in the period after the sale and, 
if it has gone up, they say that 
the Exchequer has lost out. 
What nonsense. The share 
price performance of compa- 
nies after privatization is at 
least partly a reflection of how 
the profitability and efficiency 
of the companies have in- 
creased as a direct result of 
being privatized.” 

The official line is that each 
sell-off will be taken on its 
own merits. But it appears 
that, with the full approval of 
the Government’s various fi- 
nancial advisers, fixed price 
issues will remain the general 

The Government claims to 
get good value for money from 
the City out of privatization, 
countering the charge that 
asset sales line the pockets of 
the Conservative Party’s sup- 
porters in the Square Mile. 

Treasury figures show that 
aggregate ' stockbroking and 
underwriting commissions on 
the latest privatization issues, 
at less than 1.5 per cent, are 
below the 2 per cent average 
for comparable large private 
sector issues. 

The City has good reason to 
offer keen prices for floating 
off public corporations. There 
is a good chance that the 
financial advisers selected by 
the relevant Government de- 
partment in the beauty contest 
will stay with the privatized 
company in some form. Priva- 
tization offers City firms a 
chance to project themselves 
to a large audience, which will 
become increasingly impor- 
tant in the new. more compet- 
itive era. 

There is a danger with 
privatization, that after the 
jewels have been picked out of 
the crown and sold, the Gov- 
ernment will be left with a 
lump of unsaleable, loss-mak- 
ing. state industries. However, 
the addition of the water 
authorities lo the sell-off list, 
which alreadv contains more 
than enough for the rest of this 
decade, suggests that there is 
still quite a long way to goi 
before this point is reached.

Economics correspondent 

The utkover panel is being 
called on more and more to 
arbitrate in these often bitter - 
tattles. Its primary function is 
to ensure that all shareholders 
are treated equally. . If the 
panel, however, fails to give 
the desired answer, the ag- 
grieved party will now often 
take the case to court. 

The tendency id seek a 
judicial review, rather than 
accept the takeover code as 
interpreted by the panel 
presents problems of author- 
ity for the panel. The 140 
pages of the code attempt to 
spell out how a bid should be 
conducted, but changing tac- 
tics sometimes mean the code 
has not got the appropriate- 
rule for the new situation. 

The panel has no statutory 
tacking and is therefore, fre- 
quently accused of having no 
teeth. It relies for its effective- 
ness on willingness among 
City institutions to obey its 
rulings. The fear is that with 
the Big Bang . approaching, 
conflicts of interest proliferat- 
ing and competition 'increas- 
ing. the temptation will grow 
to flout the paneL As it stands 
the panel has no sanction 
against potential offenders. 

In recent months the panel 
has come under fire for some 
of its decisions. In March it. 
announced a new code, aimed 
at tanning knocking advertis- 
ing m a bid tattle. The 
advertising industry was im- 
mediately up in arms criticiz- 
ing the panel for meddling in 
areas which it fell were the . 
responsibility of the Advertis— , 
ing Standards Authority. 

The panel had always had a 
duty to vet advertising copy to 
see that it complied with the 
code, but it ..clearly felt drat, 
some of tbe full-page ads being 
taken out in national newspa- 
pers were going too far. With 

Tactics oatstrip 
roles in code 

writs flying between some of 
the bid contestants over deni- 
gratory ads. tbe panel’s inter- 
vention was not ' totally 

Two more recent rulings 
have caused controversy over 
the degree of discretion the 
panel is allowed to exert. The 
panel absolved Kleinwon 
Benson, the merchant bank, 
and its client Hillsdown Hold- 
ings from having to produce a 
cash alternative in the bid for 
S. & W. Berisford. although 
the code technically demand- 
ed this. 

Kleinwon had inadvertent- 
ly breached the 15 per cent 
ceiling on share purchases in 
the year before a bid by buying 
152 per cent of Berisford. 
Technically this should have 
triggered a cash offer to all 
shareholders at the highest 
price paid in the market by 
Hillsdown. The highest price 
was well above the paper offer 
price and enforcement of the 
rule would have been a bitter 
pill for Hillsdown to swallow. 

Charterhouse Japhet, 
Berisford’s merchant bank, 
asked the panel to enforce the 
rule, but was turned down. 
The panel stressed that it 
considered the rule important, 
but was not enforcing it in this 
case because the breach was 
both small and inadvertent. 

The full panel, consisting of 
a dozen, representatives of 
City organizations, including 
merchant tanks, insurance 
companies, clearing tanks, 
pension funds and industry 
representatives, was convened 
to consider the 15 per cent 
breach issue. The executive,

far less in the market-place in 
foe absence of bid speculation. 

The apparent division be-

ness in some quarters about 
placing too much reliance on 
an executive ruling. There is

Chase Manhattan, a giant in the 
field of global banking, is teaming up 
with two top stockbrokers from the 
City: Laurie Milhank, and Simon &, 
Coates. With a combination of inter- 
national banking expertise and newly 
acquired stockbroking skills, Qiase will 
be meeting the challenge of the 'Big . 
Bang' with a winning side. 

Asa front line global financial insti- 
tution, heavily represented in all three 

major time zones, Chase can promise 
a 'one stop' trading facility. 

They're active in all the following 
areas. Equities; Eurosecurities; Foreign 
Exchange; Corporate Finance; Fund 
Management; Futures and Options; 
interest Rate arid Currency Swaps; and 
Gilts and Fixed Interest Securities. 

They will also offer a faster more 
responsive service. Chase are well 
known for their technological leader- 

ship in electronic banking, and com- 
puter systems. (And of course, for their 
'switchedon' employees.) 

So by all means play the field, but 
you'll be hard pressed to find a match 
for Chase.

Ms Ross and the £100,000 option 

Not so long ago in Britain, a 
company's monetary affairs 
were run by a finance director 
whose job it was to speak to 
the local bank manager to 
arrange the best interest rates 
for borrowings and deposits. 
Today, the finance director is 
still around, but the direct 
day-to-day management of a 
company's cash positions is 
likely to be in the hands of a 
new animal — the corporate 

This modem breed of finan- 
cial overseer, who might be 
more accustomed to snatching 
a hurried lunch while huddled 
over a video terminal in the 
company dealing room than 
enjoying a leisurely repast in 
the boardroom, has emerged 
to cope with the increasing 
volatility in the world money 
markets! The break-up of the 
postwar, fixed- rate currency 
agreements and the wild 
swings of the oil price have 
made foreign exchange and 
interest rales move as never 

For a corporate treasurer, 
particularly those working for 
a company engaged in foreign 
business, the problem is how 
to prevent those currency and 
interest rate fluctuations eat- 
ing into the profits earned by 
the firm's core business. 

Fortunately there are now a 
whole range of new financial 
instruments available to help 
the treasurer do just that The 
aim of these instruments is 
not necessarily to enable a 
company to borrow money or 
buy foreign currencies on 
better terms than they might 
have been able to do: rather to 
fi\ those terms over a future 
period and eliminate uncer- 

If this is done, the company 
can forecast its cash flows with 
greater accuracy and the cor- 
porate treasurer can sleep 
more soundly at night. 

On the foreign exchange 
side, in the last decade there 
has been an explosion in 
currency options, which give 
the company the right, but not 
the obligation as in futures 
markets, to buy or sell a 
currency on or before a certain 
dale at a fixed price. 

Companies can choose two 
routes if they want to take out 
an option. They can arrange a 
tailor-made agreement with 
their own bankers or trade an 
option on one of the interna- 
tional exchanges that offer 

Susan Ross, treasurer at Renters: Seeking the interest-rate advantage over competitor companies 

In Britain, the London in- 
ternational Financial Futures 
Exchange (LIFE) and the 
Stock Exchange both offer 
currency options, while in 
America options can be traded 
in Chicago, the mother city of 
options and futures, and on 
the Philadelphia Stock Ex- 
change. which recently an- 
nounced a link-up with its 
London counterpart that en- 
ables a contract taken out on 
one market to be settled on the 

Options, which supposedly 
started in 400 BC when the 
philosopher Thales put a de- 
posit on an olive press during 
winter in case he needed it for 
the summer, are essentially 
insurance policies, with the 
price paid being the equiva- 
lent of an insurance premium. 

For example, the treasurer 
of an English carpel exporter 
who expects to receive 
$10,000 in six months' time 
and wants to hedge against 
currency fluctuations might 
buy the right to purchase 
sterling at a $1.50 exchange 
rate for a premium of 3 cents. 
IE when the lime comes, the 
pound is worth $1.55. he 
would be advised to sell the 
dollars on the spot market and 
forget about the option. But if 

the pound had slumped to 
$ 1 .40. the treasurer would 
lake up the option at a net rate 
of $1.47. 

Options provide certain ad- 
vantages over forward cover, 
the traditional form of hedg- 
ing foreign exchange risk 
where a company takes out a 
contract with a bank to buy or 
sell a currency on a future 
date, usually a set number of 
months ahead. 

Options, especially those 
made with a bank, can be 
customized to suit a 
company's particular require- 

out by computer programs — 
the best known being the 
Black-Scholes program devel- 
oped in America — that also 
take the volatility of the 
underlying currency into ac- 

Finally, though many com- 
panies can build the cost of 
forward cover into a contract 
price when it is translated into 
their domestic currency, they 
may have to lake the cost of 
options into the profit-and- 
loss account. 

On the domestic scene, 
companies are also turning to 

The mere mention of ‘options’ 
may fill chairmen with fear 

ments on dates and size. They 
can also bring a handy extra 
profit if the currency markets 
move the right way and are 
especially suitable for project 
tenders, where a company 
may not know until the last 
day whether it is going to 
receive a pile of foreign 

But there are drawbacks. 
Whereas the cost of forward 
cover is easily calculated by 
taking the difference in inter- 
est rates between two curren- 
cies. option prices are worked 

options to cover interest rate 
fluctuations, which are subject 
to the tribulations of the 
economy and both domestic 
and foreign political events. 

One frequent user of these 
options is Susan Ross, the 
treasurer at Reuters. After 
working out the likely future 
sterling revenues coming in 
from the sales of Reuters 
financial information systems 
around the world for one year 
hence. Ms Ross will negotiate 
an option, for example, to 
deposit £100.000 for six 

months starting in a year’s 
lime at 9 Vi per cent 

If the pound does badly and 
Britishinterest rates have to 
rise, she will be able to get 
better rates when she actually 
has the money to hand. But tf 
interest rates slump because of 
decreasing inflation. Ms Ross 
can earn interest at 9!£ per 
cent — less her option cost of 
course — while others alt 
around her are getting a 
miserable 5 per cent and 
receiving a dressing-down 
from the board of directors to 


Companies that need to 
borrow can of course; do the 
same in reverse. They can also 
take advantage of another 
facility developed by banks 
over the past few years — 
interest rare swaps. These 
enable a company to convert a 
loan taken out at floating 
interest rales into a fixed-rate 

This is particularly useful if 
a company thinks interest 
rates are going to level off or 
rise but is unable on its own to 
obtain a fixed-rate loan. The 
bank takes oh the company’s 
credit risk and acts as a 
marriage broker, pairing it off 
with another company which 
for some reason — perhaps to 

meet future receipts — wants 
to swap a loan arranged at 
fixed rates for a floating rate 
arrangement. . 

These are only some of the 1 
simplest arrangements avail- 
able and the marketing depart- 
ments of our-leading -banks 
have other more complicated 
products up^ their sleeves, 
which may combine swaps 
and options or bring m other 
farilitres such as interest rate 
caps, which as their name 
suggests, put a limit on the 
interest rate that a borrower 
will pay. As both banks and 
companies will admit, the 
complexity of some new fi- 
nancial instruments can bring 
headaches. s 

Bank officials are well aware 
that the very mention of the 
words “options” or “swaps” 
may make certain company 
chairmen jump out of their 
seat with fright. 

Said one banken“When the 
chairman of a manufacturing 
company in Barnsley thinks oT 
options he thinks - of . those 
screaming hordes of Chicago 
traders, and how they make 
and lose fortunes in a minute. 

What he doesn't think about is 
how they can save his compa- 
ny some money.” 

According to Anthony Wil- 
liams of Barclays Merchant 
Bank, it is a question of using 
education to narrow the “cul- 
ture gap” between banks, cor- 
porate treasurers and 
company directors. He said: 

“The terms that tankers take 
for granted in everyday ase 
may just be understood by the 
treasurer but could baffle the 

From the other side of the 
counter, however, some trea- 
surers fed that some of the 
more complex deals offered by 
banks have been worked out 
by the back-room boys who 
understand their computers 
better than the needs of their 

At Reuters, for instance, 
two in-house dealers handle 
all the company's receipts in 
no less than 27 currencies and 
Sue Ross says she can meet aO 
her normal hedging require- 
ments through forward cover 
arrangements without any re- 
course to contracts. 

She said: “I'm very sceptical 
about -how widely used some 
of these new things are."

Confidence tempered by 
fear of a major upset 

The recent record-breaking 
ran of rights' issues has fright- 
ened investors. In one hugely 
demanding week rattier this 
month there were no less than 
four major rights issues in- 
cluding a £714 million block- 
buster from National 
Westminster, the largest ever. 

In the same week the FT 
Ordinary Share Index 
plummcited4l points. 

In the City the fall in the 
market was blamed entirely 
on the spate of rights issues, 
and these became a talking 

Kenneth Inglis. of the stock- 
brokers Phillips & Drew, re- 
fers to a “scries of obsessions”. 
In the first three months of the 
year investors were preoccu- 
pied by the excellent prospects 
for profit increases: now they 
arc worried by rights issues: in 
the third quarter it could be 
political uncertainties that 
dominate market sentiment. 

He believes that share prices 
were overheated anyway and 
that the market was due for a 
correction. Rights' issues pro-

vided “an occasion for doing 
what needed to be done.” 

In a rights' issue a company 
sets out to raise money by 
issuing new shares, usually at 
a discount to the market price 
of existing shares. Sharehold- 
ers are offered new shares in 
proportion to their existing 
holding, for example two 
shares for every’ five they 
already own. To maintain 
their percentage slake in the 
company they have to dig 

deep into their pockets for 

So far this year companies 
have asked their shareholders 
for £2.2 billion through rights' 
issues, which compares with a 
total of £3.1 billion for the 
whole of last year. The de- 
mands have nearly all fallen in 
April and May. following a 
quiet start to the year. 

In taking fright at the spate 
of rights' issues, often known 
as cash calls, investors were 
taking their cue from history 
books. A year ago a similar 
stream of rights' issues 
eliminated in a £500 million 
rash call, then a record, from 
Hanson T rust, which was 
followed by a sharp slump in 
share prices. 

The stock market soon re- 
covered however and in the 
first quarter of this year it rose 
strongly. Companies could 
not resist the temptation of 
raising cheap money, and this 
gave rise to accusations of 
opportunism. The City was 
particularly unnerved by com- 
panies who refused to say 

Kenneth Inglis of Phillips & Drew: Investors suffer **a series of obsessions" 

what they would use the 
rights* money for. 

The man from the Pru is 
normally trusted to invest 
without outside interference 
but when Prudential Assur- 
ance asked shareholders to 
cough up £357 million they 
wanted to know why. The 
company simply said the 
rights’ issue proceeds would 
enable it to take advantage of 
opportunities as and when 
they arose. 

Saatchi and Saatchi was 
equally vague about the pur- 
pose of its £406 million cash 
call, though since it was 
launched the company has 
agreed a merger with Ted 
Bates and so become the 
largest advertising agency in 
the world. 

Harris Queensway is open- 
ing several new stores at great 
expense but these would nor- 
mally be funded out of cash 
flow or bank borrowings. Bri- 
tannia Arrow was more specif- 
ic in that it wanted the money 
to pay for M1M (Montagu 
Investment Management). 

It is not just the llood of 
rights issues that has caught 
investors', attention. Compa- 
nies have been joining the 
stock market in ever growing 
numbers, giving rise to a 
hectic new issue season. In the 
busy week of NatWest's 
record breaking cash call there 
were no less than five offers 
for sale and four placing*. 

The largest of the recent 
arrivals was Mrs Fields Inc. an 
American cookie company set 
up and run by 29-ycar-old s 
Debbi Fields and valued at 
£210 million. Despite all the 
glamour and excitement of the 
company, only 16 per cent of 
the "shares on oiler were 
subscribed. The rest were left 
with the underwriters. 

Even some of the issues that 
were fully subscribed and 
traded initially at a premium 
have lost favour now. Shares 
in Templeton. Galbraith, an 
American fund management 
group, for example, stand lOp 
below the 2 1 5p offer price. \ 
Adrian Fitzgerald of Wood 
Mackenzie, the brokers, be- 
lieves the problem of indiges- 
tion. such as it is. will son 
itself out “It doesn't need 
anybody to tighten the 
controls.” he says. 

Clearing the decks 
before privatization 

The Bank of England is 
responsible for running an 
orderly queue of rights’ issues, 
so the theoretical implication 
ofthe recent spate of cash rails 

is that several more are lined 
up. In practice the market's 
recent correction is likely to 
have frightened off the more 
half-hearted of the companies. 
Fitzgerald suggests the queue 
will therefore Lhin out 

Already Target Group, the 
life assurance and unit trust 
company, has postponed its 
slock market flotation 
planned for June until Octo- 
ber or later. TargeTstnanaging 
director. John Stone, says the 
main reason for the delay is 
the fall in the market 
Target was hoping for a 
fairly generous valuation to 
reflect both its past perfor- 
mance and potential profit- 
ability. It is currently suffering 
from “new business strain” 
which means that recent sales 
gains have yet to feed through 
to increased profits. 

In addition the float would 
have faced the life sector with 

several concurrent demands. 
The Pro's rights' issue is 
absorbing £357 million and 
the market is expecting a 
further placing of shares in 
Abbey Life next month. Tar- 
get would have been third on 
the list, which is hardly 

Target still plans to join the 
stock market this autumn so it 
clearly believes the current 
bout of market weakness will 
not last. The problem for 
Target is that by the autumn 
the Government’s privatiza- 
tion campaign will be in full 
swing. Royal Ordnance. Rolls- 
Royce and British Gas are all 
on the starting blocks now. 

In lumping so many cash 
calls together the Bank of 
England may well have been 
clearing the decks before the 
privatization onslaught. Com- 
panies who leave it until the 
autumn to raise money will be 
competing with the likes of 
British Gas’ £2.5 billion flota- 
tion and the attendant publici- 
ty. For most it will be an 
unequal battle. 

The autumn schedule 
should not in theory exhaust 
institutional cash flow howev- 
er. In practice much depends 
on the strength of the market 
Nicholas Knight of James 
Capel expects the FT All Share 
to fell from its level of 776 lo 
below 750 in the summer and 
pick up to 800 by the end of 
the year. 

Other brokers are even 
more confident but all warn 
that their projections could be 
upset by. say. a Wall Street 
collapse. What seems . clear is 
that the Government will do 
all in its power to help give 
British Gas a good blast-off.

a new market 

The unlisted securities market : 
has become the. single most ■ 
important source of equity^ 
capita] for small conjpames 
since it was launched . five 
years ago. _ ' 

In this lime more than 450 . 
companies have obtained a 
quotation .for their . shares, 
raising about £1.000 million. 

Of these firms. 55 have gone 
on to a full Stock Exchange 
listing. 31 have been acquired, 
nine have been reorganized, 
and a further nine- have had 
dealings suspended or' rain 
celled for solvency reasons! . 

However, there have been 
signs in recent months that foe 
pace of recruits to the market 
was- slackening. The accoun- 
tancy firm. . Peat . Marwick, 
■which has been involved with 
1 5 per cent of all flota tions to 
the market, noted that only 
seven companies were floated 
during the first quarter of the 
year compared with 18 m the 
same quarter a year ago. 

This was the fewest number 
of new entrants to foe market 
in any quarter since it was 
established posing the. ques- 
tion: was the market losing its 
attraction? . 

The USM has been a major 
success for the Slock Ex- 
change. It was set up amid 
concern that the number of 
companies seeking a listing on 
the Stock Exchange' was 

The Slock Exchange took' 
foe sensible view that one of 
foe main obstacles preventing 
companies from coming for- 
ward was the very high entry 
standards required So it took 
the innovative step of relaxing 
foe rules so that a company 
could join with only three 
years rather than five years’ 
trading history, and allowed 
the owners to hold on to the 
bulk of thetr shares. selling no 
more than 10 per cent to the 
public rather than 25 percent 
as in foe case of a full listing 

The USM. after a tentative 
beginning with just 23 compa- 
nies. has blossomed in the 
great bull market — despite . 
some setbacks. 

Initially it attracted a high 
number of technology related 
companies whose imminent 
demise was being constantly 
predicted The end nearly 
came when with the near 
collapse of Acorn Computers, 
once foe USM's biggest com- 
pany valued at £217 million. 

When dealings were halted 
with its shares changing hands 
at just 28p the company was 
worth just £30 million. But by- 
foal time the USM has fortu- 
nately broadened fts base hav- 
ing- passed through the 
technology phase and oil and 
gas exploration period to 
something bordering a micro- 
cosm of the main market. 

Now in .feci the USM 
embraces PR firms, architects, 
nursing homes, engineers, 
travel firms, T-shirt printers, 
pub refurbishers, and manu- 
facturers of anti-terrorist park- 
ing barriers! 

Alan Comber ■ of ’Peat 
Marwick does not think that 
the sluggish ■ rate of arrivals 
earlier this year marked any 
long term loss of confidence in 
the market 

He said: “It may be that 
private ' companies which 
would otherwise make good 

- USM prospects are - being 
Snapped up by major corpora- 
tions in foe tight of die recent 
frenetic acquisition activity in 

' the-City. ‘ 

“Though there is. no evi- 
dence that the prospective 
entrants themselves have lost 
any enthusiasm for a public 
flotation, there are some signs 
..that companies which would 
have selected foe USM a year 
: ago' are now chosing a full 
listing.. Another possible ex- 
planation for the .current 
downturn in entrants to the 
junior market is that the City 
. febecontingincreasingiy selec- 
tive about foe companies it 
wishes to sponsor; in the 
period preceding the Big 
Bang." . 

Though the rate has picked 
up since the firs quarter.- the 
total number joining the USM 
is unlikely to match the 99 last 

. Even so. there are signs that 

- companies are endeavouring 
to scramble aboard the USM 
band wagon ahead of the flota- 
tion ofTSB and British Gas - 
which wilt drain a lot of cash 
out of the system — as long 

Despite criticisms, 
the USM is 
in most cases 
viewed favourably 

before the next General Elec- 
tion as they are able. 

This is the view of Patrick 
Harrex of accountants Spicer 
and Peeler who have also been 
prominent in steering compa- 
nies to the market. He said:“I 
think there is a feeling that if 
you are planning to go to the 
market then do it quickly and 
take the money while you 

Many companies with the 
necessary experience are also 
finding it only a little more 
expensive to complete the 
journey in one move and go 
directly to the main market. 

There, they would join for- 
mer USM recruits such as { 
Spring Ram Corporation, 
manufacturers of bathroom 
.and kitchen sinks: McCarthy 
and Stone, builders of shel- 
tered housing for foe elderly: 
and the public relations group 
foimed out of foe merger of 
two USM companies. Addi- 
son Communications and the 
Michael Page Partnership. 

The overall view of the 
USM remains a positive one. 
There are still criticisms about 
the limited amount of stock 
available on foe market which 
does create a liquidity prob- 
lem. This of course makes the 
share price very volatile. But 
few of the companies which 
joined have regrets about 
having made the move. 

A recent survey showed that 1 
the unwelcome aspects of 
going to the market were not 
financial but instead the prob- 
lems caused by foe amount of 
boardroom lime taken up by 
foe move. But considering foe 
USM has created nearly 400 
new millionaires most direc- 
tors no doubt consider the 
time well spent.

Elizabethan and 
little changed 

■ The Viscount and Viscountess 
Garrnoyle ere selling their Elizabethan 
manor house. Queen Hoo Hall 

| pictured right), near Hertford, a Grade It* 
building set in a rural position 
overlooking the Lea Valley. Much of the 
property has remained virtually 
unaltered for 400 years since it was built; 
Queen Elizabeth I is believed to have 
used it as a hunting lodge when it was 
occupied by Edward Skegges- 
The house has tour reception rooms, 
five or six bedrooms and outbuildings. 
There are formal gardens enclosed by 
an original brick wall and four paddocks, 
making a total 17 acres. The property, 
with two cottages, is for sale through 
Lane Fox and Partners, who are 
asking for offers over £500.000. 

■ Waterdale, at Milton, near East 
Knoyle in Wiltshire, was built (n the 
1930s as changing rooms for the 
swimming pool on a neighbouring 
estate. It h now considered a fine 
country house in its own right, and has 
three reception rooms, a master 
bedroom and three further bedrooms. 
The grounds of seven acres include a 
three-acre woodland and three-acre 
paddock. Humberts' London and 
Shaftesbury offices are asking £190,000. 

1 086 and ail that 

The Refectory at Hurley-on-Thames. 
between Marlow and Henley, was built in 
1 086 and is now one of the oldest 
inhabited dwellings in England. Originally 

e art of a Benedictine monastery, the 
uitding and grounds are Grade II listed 
and the building itself is designated an 
Ancient Monument 
Since 1950 the property, in six acres, 
has been converted and restored by 
Nicholas Sorrell-Straussler. an 
inventor and engineer, and is now 
occupied by his son. There is 5.500 
square feet of accommodation, which 
include numerous architectural 
features of the Normal Period, with a 
moat ot about 400 feet. 

A.C.Frost and Co of Windsor want 
more than £600.000 for the property, 
which includes a building plot for a 
“substantial" residence. 

■ Mautby Windpump, at Mautby 
Marsh, near Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, is 
a converted wind pump by the River 
Bure. The present accommodation 
includes two reception rooms and a 
bedroom, with further floors unused, and 
within the grounds of an acre is a 
second pump house which could 
provide three rooms. The mill's sails 
remain on the building. SavilEs' Norwich 
office is asking £100,000.

By Christopher Warman 

Property Correspondent 

The north-west comer of Regent's Park. 
London, is the focus for some very 
expensive property. Overlooking the 
park, with wonderful views of London to 
the south from Prince Albert Road two 
penthouses on lop of a 1 0-storey new 
development are for sale at £1.375,000 
and £1.250.000. From there the view 
takes in another luxury development in 
Park Road close to the imposing 
mosque, where the prices range from 
£295.000 to £420.000. 

From both of these blocks, and in 
between them, is Nuffield Lodge, the 
Grade I Regency village designed and 
built by Decimtu Burton between 1822 
and 1824. which is for sale on behalf of 
the Nuffield Foundation and the Crown 
Estate Commissioners through 
Chesiertons for at least £8 million, 
winning the valuation prize for the week. 

This fine house, with decorations 
inside by Sigismund Goetze. an Edwar- 
dian painter, is — like other grand houses 
recently sold by the commissioners — to 
be used as a single private residence, 
which could mean a private owner or 
more likely an ambassadorial purchaser. 

The penthouses are the last two units 
to be completed at Park Saint James, the 
first luxury apartment building to be 
constructed in the last 15 years in Prince 
Albert Road Occupying two floors, they 
have four bedrooms each, with roof 
terraces to lake advantage of the views 
over the park and beyond One potential 
buyer, an Indian businessman, offered 
£2.4 million for both, but together they 
are for sale at £2.625.000. and the agents. 
Lassmans. are confident they will get the 

full asking price for these spacious 
apartments, singly or together. 

One has been furnished in what is 
becoming known as Zh’iuuip-style lav- 
ishness, with marble everywhere and a 
water “feature*' running down some 
steps. The cause of conservation has 
nevertheless had a say in this palatial 
development, because a 100-year-old fig 
tree, gnarled and bent over, has been 
preserved as pan of the planning 
consent; it even had to be shored up 
during construction work. 

The house stands between Park Saint 
James and St James's Terrace Mews, a 
new development of four town houses, 
which have either three bedrooms and 
three bathrooms, or two bedrooms and 
bathrooms. These delightful houses, 
which have roof terraces or balconies 
overlooking landscaped gardens, and 
inside have galleries, are for sale through 
Lassmans. at prices ranging from 
£255.000 to £395.000. Tucked in behind 
the tall block, they have three or four 

The Park Road development is Crown 
Court, by the Rosehaugh Co-Partner- 
ship. a seven-storey block of 23 apart- 
ments. The company specializes in high- 
quality houses and what it hopes to be 
excellent investments, a point which 
seems to have been taken up by buyers - 
1 8 of the apartments have already been 
sold six months before completion. 

A feature of the development is the 
large reception area. There is a special 
air-cooling system to the main rooms, as 
well as resident porterage, underground 
parking and an electronic security sys- 
tem. The five apartments remaining 
have two or three bedrooms, two 
bathrooms and double reception room, 
and the prices, through Hampton and 
Sons, range from £295.000 to £420,000.

Down on the Costa del Farm 

The sheer bngth of the Cosia del SoPs 
coastline, stretching east as it does from 
Gibraltar to Ahnuhecar. a distance of 
over 100 miles, allows it to offer a variety 
of property for sale, in all price brackets. 

Holiday apartments and villas, often 
purchased with a long-term view to 
permanent retirement are still the most 
popular choice. But growing numbers of 
potential buyers are looking inland and 
considering the idea of acquiring a 
village house, perhaps with an acre or so 
of garden, a smallholding or even a 
working farm. 

The idea of buying a rural property 
seems to appeal to two distinct types of 
UK buyers. FirsL there is the hobby 
farmer, keen to buy a manageable tract of 
land which requires little. regular in- 
volvement According to UK agents 
Fincasol. who run a farms department 
from their Spanish office at Sotogrande. 
up to 15 acres is viable on this basis. 

“This could contain a few fruit trees, 
probably oranges, which would enable 
the property to pay for rtselC'’ says 
Fincasol have a variety of small farms 
for sale, including a fully fenced avocado 
plantation with 500 metres of river 
frontage to the Guadiaro, some five 
miles inland from Sotogrande, asking 
£210,000, and a 560-acre mixed farm of 
arable and grazing at nearby San Martin 
del Tesoriilo asking around £300,000 

Fincasol are selling 15 acres of fertile 
land, with a cottage requiring complete 
modernization, in a -river* valley just 
below Jimena de la Frontera 35 minutes 
inland from the coast at Sotogrande. 
There is electricity and unlimited water, 
both rare commodities in rural areas, 
and the land, which has been worked 
since Moorish times and still has the 
original. working Moorish well, produces 
a mixed crop of vegetables including 
aubergines, pimentoes and tomatoes, 
and fruits such . as. oranges. lemons, figs 


By Diana Wildman 

and pears. The asking price is around 

The second category of British buyer is 
seeking a permanent home and, accord- 
ing to Sue Orr, this now includes a 
signi ficant number of expatriates keen to 
establish a European foothold in the 
property market. These buyers often seek 
a small working farm. Those farms 
Specializing in avocadoes are gaining in 
popularity, as they give two crops a year. 

Fincasol have a variety of small farms 
for sale, including a fully fenced avocado 
lantation with 500 metres of river 
mtage to the Guadiaro, some five 
miles inland from Sotogrande. asking 
£210.000, and a 560-acre mixed farm of 
arable and grazing at nearby San Martin 
del Tesorifio asking around £300.000 

It is essential when buying old rural 
properties that a lawyer checks that the 
purchaser is able to acquire full title 
deeds to all the land as well as the house. 

Five villas are 
still for sale

Quite the most dramatic house for sale 
in Andalucia. inviting offers of around 
£6 million, is Villa Las Sirenas, set in a 
50-acre hillside estate complete with vast 
pool, covered terracing and tennis 
courts, outside the village of San Enrique 
de Guadiaro. 

Both the architectural design and 
building were organized by the owner, an 
American millionaire, over the past 
decade and the mansion is part grand- 
European in style with its vast reception 
rooms, traditional library complete with 
16th-century coffered ceiling from Se- 
ville. and four large bedroom suites. 

But it is a strong Arab influence which 
dominates the house. The Moorish wing 
has cell-like bedrooms in pure Alhambra 
style built around the cupola of a large 
double-domed Arab reception room and 
the whole house has a myriad of linked 
passageways where wall murals and 
general design is modelled on Granada's 
famous Alhambra Palace.

Nielsen disqualification 
has a saving grace 

*- e . 

- By Keith Macklin 

How fortunate for England 
and for the international series 
against Denmark that Hans 
Nielsen should get himself dis- 
qualified for hitting die tapes at 
Bradford on Sonday. This over- 
zealous bit of gating, typical of 
Nielsen, cost Denmark a likely 
victory and presented the wMirti 
to E n g l a n d, as Simon W$gg and 
Kelvin Tatam made the most of 
the dunce with a 5-1 maximum 
to give E n g land their first match 
waa of the series. 

It was a life-saver for the 
attendance at the fifth and final 
international at Oxford on Fri- 
day and saved the Lions from 
the threat of a whitewash 
against these rampant Danes, 
who are oat to win every 
championship they can enter. 

They clinched the series with a 
big victory at Wolverhampton 
on Friday and, although some 
English supporters were 
attrib uting defeat to a hangover 
from the tragic death of Kenny 
Carter, there was no doubt thof 
several English riders jost did 
not compete. Exempt from this 
mtjasm most be Chris Morton, 
who battled thronghoot and had 
one convincing beat win in the 
second halt 

One event the Danes caanot 
™ ® Jb* British final for the 
5*™ “wnpionship at Brandon 
awfima, Coventry, next Sun- 


Coventry, with 
through to the 
final at Belle Vne, Manchester, 
next week. The death of Carter 
win - aga in hang in ' the' at- 
mosphere since Carter was the 
winner in 1984 and 1985. His 
absence opens op the eveot for 
Wigg, captain of the Engfamd 
team, and Jeremy Donca ster , 
both of whom are in good eaoiigb 
form to win the title. Tatum, 
England's only world champfOo- 
ship finalist at Bradford last 
August, has made an indifferent 
start to the League season but 
could make an impact ofl his 
home track. Other inter- 
nationals still licking ' their 
wounds after being Bigoted by 
the Danes are Neu Evitts, Phil 
Collins. Carl Blackbird and 
Simon Cross.

and East racer but a poor gater,

outsiders are Richard of

By Mandarin (Michael Phillips) 

Nothing succeeds like sue- prove the an: 
cess in-giving a jockey a Nelson runs A: 
confidence-boosting shot in two days after 1 
the arm before a big occasion, long way at Sai 

So. although they may be only 
small fry. Walter Swinburn 
will : still be hoping that 
Tangalooma (2.0) and Ver- 
dant Boy (2.30) can put him in 
the right frame of mind for his 
exciting rides in the Derby and 
Oaks next week on 
Shahrasutni and Maysoon by 
winning their respective races 
at Brighton today. 

Following that heartening 
run behind Summer Sky and 
Dancing Diana at Warwick 
earlier this month. 
Tangalooma is taken to give 
Lester Piggoit another taste of 
success as a trainer in the 
Shoreham Fillies’ Stakes. 
Even in the face of likely 
challenges from Blue Tango, 
Loma Breeze and the ex-Irish 
filly. Lady Behave, who re- 
cently left Mick O'Toole's 
yard to join Richard Hannon. 
Tangaiooma's form still looks 
good enough as Summer Sky 
and Dancing Diana have both 
won recently. 

At first sight Verdant Boy 
looks to have plenty of weight 
in the Clayton Handicap but, 
upon reflection, be probably 
has not. Last year he finished 
third behind iheQueen's Oaks 
runner. Laughter, in the 
Houghton Stakes and on his 
seasonal debut this spring he 
occupied the same place be- 
hind those useful performers. 
Barley Bill and Lance, at 

Furthermore, Verdant Boy 
appeared to not quite last the 
extended mile there so the 
return to seven furlongs could 

prove the answer. Charlie 
Nelson runs Arctic Ken just 
two days after being beaten a 
long way at Sandown. Before 
that, he had won bis two 
previous races, at Wolver- 
hampton and Warwick. 

Explaining his derision yes- 
terday. the Upper Lam bo urn 
trainer told me that in addi- 
tion to starting slowly at 
Sandown his horse did not 
corner as well going right 
handed as he had done racing 
the other way ' in his two 
previous races. Also Nelson 
added that Arctic Ken has 

S ane up a lot in. his new 
andicaps so- this represents 
his last opportunity, from off 
his old mark. Together with 
Sweet Domaine and Hymn Of 
Harlech, Arctic Ken should 
provide Verdant Boy with stiff 

Arctic Ken’s travelling com- 
panion. Kelly's Royale, goes 
for the Flanagan and Allen 
Handicap but 1 prefer 
Amegbino, the mount of Rog- 
er Wemham, who won the 
race 12 months ago on Singing 


Shahrastam, the Derby joint-favourite, who has his final serious gallop this morning. 

Tisn’t doubtful for Derby 

Sailor. Ameghino shaped like 
a future winner recently when 
1 saw him finish fourth behind 
Dawn’s Delight at Newbury. 

Clive Holmes's 10-horse 
raid on the picturesque north 
Lancashire course. Carmel, 
from his home near Chalfont 
St Giles in Buckinghamshire 
has already resulted in two 
winners and a third. Now I am 
banking on Clearly Bust, who 
was the second of those win- 
ners on Saturday, putting the 
finishing touches to a memo- 
rable visit by running away 
with . the Crake Norices’ 

Tisn’t, one of Paul Calc's 
three intended runners in next 
Wednesday's Derby, has polled 
a hi id bar muscle behind the 
saddle and is now an unlikely 
starter. “It's nothing serious," 
the Whatcombe trainer said 
yesterday. “Bat it will mean 
Tisra’t missing three to five days' 
vital work awl as he is such a 
relaxed iadiridaal there is Ettte 
chance of getting him fit enough 
to do himself jestke." 

Nomrood, runner up to 
Shahrasfaai is York's Mecca- 
Dante Stakes, and Nisons, the 
conqueror of Verd-Antique at 
Ljngfield, will be galloped mi the 
Berkshire Downs this morning 
and again on Saturday. “Rich- 
ard Onion wBl then choose 
between the pair." Cole said. 
“Philip Waldron, who had been 
booked for Han't, will ride the 
one Qninn discards." 

Other Derby news came from 
Intend with Dennot Weld 
announcing that Flash Of Steel 
is now a probable starter. The 
Irish 2,000 Guineas winner sat- 
isfied his trainer in a nine- 
furlong workout on the Cmragh 
and, provided the going does not 

By Michael Seely 
become firm, Michael Klnaoe 
will take the mount oa Bertram 
Firestone’s Kris colt, who has 
been in trod need into the betting 
at 25-1 by Ladbrokes. 

As Epsom fever starts to 
mount, tbemaio questions to be 
resolved concern the mounts of 
Steve Canlhen and Pat Eddery. 
Cant ben, the man who rode Slip 
Anchor to that breathtaking 
victory last year, has yet to make 
np his mind between Henry 
Cedi's pair, Masbkonr and 
Faraway Dancer. And Eddery, 
with victories to his credit on 
Grundy and Golden Fleece, is 
waiting to hear whether he is to 
be domed by Vincent O’Brien. 

Clive Brittain is also anx- 
iously awaiting O’Brien's de- 
rision as the Newmarket trainer 
has to make firm plans for his 
Kentucky Derby runner-op. 
Bold Arrangement “The sooner 
1 know whether Pat is available 
the better," he said. “I still have 
Chris McCarron standing by but 
these American jockeys are very 
busy and I would have to give 
him plenty of warning." 

Along with other Derby and 
Oaks hopefuls. Bold Arrange-

Tuck set 
| to join 

Phil Tuck has landed the 
plum job as stable jockey to 
Gordon Richards, the j 
Greystoke trainer. Tuck, aged 
30. takes up the position next . 
season in succession to Neale 
i Doughty. He follows a line of ! 
good jockeys who have field top 
billing at the yard, including the 1 
former champions, Ron Barry 
and John O'NeilL 

Tuck has already ridden 19 
winnere for Richards and the I 
partnership enjoyed a two-day ! 
haul of six victories at Ayr last 
November. "Obviously I am 
delighted to accept one of the 
best National Hunt jobs in the 
country,” Tuck said. “I have 
been associated with Gordon for | 
only a year but I have found him 
a good man to ride for." 

Results — page 38 i 

Richards, one of only three 
men to have sent out 100 jump : 
winners in a season, said: "Phil 
is an experienced jockey and a 
likeable chap and my owners are 
all very taken by him. 1 am 
confident he will do well for us 
and I'm looking forward to the 
new partnership." j

When Amanda Harwood, rid- 
ing Red Shah, just failed to catch 
Alison Dare, on Rom u lex. in the 
Ladies' Open at the New Forest 
point-to-point on Monday, her 
valiant attempt to win die 
ladies' riding championship 
came to an end. 

Time has ran out for her to 
overhaul Miss Dare, who now 
has a lead of four and is a most 
worlhv winner of the senior 
title. However, the 1 6-year-old 
daughter of the Pulborough 
trainer. Guy Harwood, has hid 
a wonderful first season and is a 
dear winner of the junior title. 

On Saturday Miss Harwood 
had kepi her hopes alive when 
she had won the Adjacent Hunts 
race at ihc Isle of Wight meeting 
on Lawn Meet. The ladies' open 
here was won by Jill Grinyer on 
Sweet Diana, who now has nine 
wins to her credit and cannot be 
beaten for the Grand Marnier 

Mike . Felton kept his title 
hopes olive in the men's 
championship by following up 
his Saiurdav wn ort Gragara 
Lad at the Dalverton East with a 
double on Camerata and 
Chesterfield ai LarkhilL This 
puts him only one behind Peter 
Greenall who is now throwing 

everything jnto the ring with 

seven rides at tomorrow s Her- 
eford meeting. 

Greenall had only one winner. 
Wild Flyer, at the Tredegar on 
Saturday. Naughty Niece being 
beaten in the Open by Red 
Spirit, who provided John 
Llewellyn with the first leg of a 
double, completed by Miss 
Daffodil in the Maiden. 

On Monday. Llewellyn en- 
joyed his biggest triumph to date 
when winning, albeit rather 
fortunately, the Land Rover 
Final at Chepstow on Fixed 
Price. Going to the last. Culm 
Valley had come to take it up 
and looked the likely winner but 
got too close and crumpled on

two top 

By Jenny MacArthor 

Conrad HomieTd. the Olym- 
pic individual silver medal win- 
ner. heads the list of five riders 
from which the United States 
team for (he world champion- 
ships in West Germany in July 
will be chosen. 

Such is the embarrassment or 
riches in American 
showjumping that neither Joe 
Fargis. the Olympic gold medal 
winner, nor Leslie Burr- 
Lenefian. last month's Inter- 
nationa] equestrian federation 
World Cup winner, are among 
the five. Mrs Burr-Lenehan is 

Homfeld and two of the 
others on the list. Michael Malz 
and Katie Monahan, all have a 
minimum of two on-form 
horses for the selectors to choose 
from. Of the other two riders 
Lisa Tarnopol, at 13, the youn- 
gest. is likely to ride Adam and 
Katharine BurdsalL the least 
experienced of the five, will ride 
The Natural, a horse which was 
bought by Paul Greenwood, his 
owner, for SI million (about 
£675.000) earlier in the year. 

Already the holders of the 
Olympic team gold medal, the 
United States will start the 
championship as clear 
favourites. The squad will have 
one outing in Europe before the 
event. All five riders will com- 
pete ai the Wolfsburg Inter- 
national Show in West 
Germany from July 3 to 6. 


for Meade 

Richard Meade, the triple 
Olympic gold medal winner, has 
entered into a sponsorship con- 
tract with Thorny era fi Limited, 
suppliers of confectionery 
(Jenny MacArthur writes). 

The figure, which has not 
been disclosed, will cover the 
expenses of Meade's two 
promising intermediate horses, 
the nine-year-old French Blue 
and the eight-year-old 

Mr Paul Walsh, the chairman 
of Thomycroft, said that addi- 
tional hones may be boueht in 
the future. The- sponsorship is 
for this year with the option to 
continue' for a further two years. 

French Blue, who still has a 
“lot to learn" according to his 
rider, will compete in nis first 
three-day event at the Bramham 
horse trials, in Yorkshire, which 
start tomorrow. "It's jumping 
in at the deep end,” Meade said 
yesterday. “But I think he's 
ready. I’m not expecting to go 
out and win. If he goes nicely 1 
shall be pleased." 


S African move 
can sabotage 
World tournament 

From Paul Martin, Johannesburg 

The bit now firmly between 
their teeth after the success of 
their first act of defiance against 
the international rugby 
establishment. South Africa is 
planning two more un- 
authorized tours within the next 
year. The new moves will send 
another shudder through the 
world’s rugby corridors of 
power. They threaten to put 
next year's World tournament 
in io disarray. 

British Isles and French play- 
ers are already being ap- 
proached to take part in a series 
of five or six matches, including 
at least one against the Spring- 
boks. in September and Octo- 
ber. Their prospective hosts, the 
Natal Rugby Union, maintain 
ihai they will constitute the 
majority of a World XV — the 
same formula used by the 
Transvaal Rugby Union as a 
smoke screen for a separate lour 
by the New Zealanders. 

The Natal Rugby Union is. 
however, hoping to convert the 
"invitation” squad into an 
international standard team 
from one nation. The option 
strongly favoured is an Austra- 
lian team. Robert Denton, who 
was behind the present New 
Zealand tour, told The Times 
that Natal were trying to arrange 
such a tour for October, after the 
official Australian side com- 
pletes its three internationals 
against New Zealand. 

South Africa has already 
official y invited Australia to 
tour next year, despite stiff 
Australian Government oppo- 
sition. No official response from 
the Australian Rugby Union has 
been received. The prime mov- 
ers behind the alternative, an 
unauthorized visit, are Alan 
Jones, the Australian coach, 
who is unlikely himself to 
accompany the squad, and 
Mark Loane, a former Austra- 
lian captain who played rugby in 
Natal some five years ago. 

Natal's managing director, an 
ex-Welsh schoolteacher and 
rugby coach. Roger Gardiner, 
circumspectly acknowledged 
that his union would "go for the 
most exciting package on the 
market'* for its short tour, which 
is ostensibly to celebrate the 
opening of the new grandstand 
at King's Park. Durban. “We'd 
be fools if we didn V he said. 

More bluntly. Mr Denton said 
that the Australians would be 
coming either this year or next, 
whether officially or un- 
officially. He favours a date next 
year in July, just after the World 

tournament, though Mr Gardi- 
ner also mooted the possibility 
of an earlier date. March or 
April. Mr Denton, managing 
director of Ellis Park stadium 
where the fourth “Test" is being 
held this weekend, staled that 
the New Zealand team would be 
invited back next year if their 
own union banned them from 
official internationals. 

Mr Denton said a team called 
the British Lions and compris- 
ing most or all of the British 
Isles’ best players would be easy 
to bring over. “The players 
would love to come. They’ve 
been queuing up. as have play- 
ers from around the world.” he 
said. __ 

Challenging the world's rugby 
authorities to acquiesce in the 
inevitable, Mr Denton- urged 
them to accept official tour 
invitations, rather than oblige 
South Africa to prove how out 
of touch the administrators are 
with the true desire and interests 
of their players. Mr Denton, 
who is not an official of the 
South African rugby .board, but 
clearly has their blessing, made a 
scathing attack on the admin- 
istration of the game world wide. 
He believed that “player power” 
was asserting itself and that the 
tide in Britain and elsewhere 
would be unstoppable. 

Certainly, the South Africans 
have already proved that they 
cannot be ignored — whether as 
challengers to the world title, or 
as rc-arrangers of international 
rugby priorities. 

Dr Danie Craven, chairman 
of the South African Rugby 
Board, says his country will 
challenge the winners of the 
World tournament to an im- 
mediate contest: though as 
Australia and New Zealand will 
have played or will be about to 
play tbe Springboks by then, the 
issue may well be clear cut. 
Colin Meads, the New 
Zealanders' coach here, has 
enthusiastically backed South 
African claims that the World 
tournament will have little 
conclusive substance without 
the South Africans. 

The New Zealanders, mean- 
while. are having to cope with 
preparations for the final 
“international” with defeat in 
the series looming, and retribu- 
tion from their rugby officials 
back home imminent. 

Fears of further international 
rugby disruption may. they 
hope, help to stay the 
executioner's axe. 7t could next 
fall on those who now wield it.

Michael Coleman examines a bra ve new scheme 

A sporting Mecca beyond a 
Briton’s wildest dreams 

Within four years the town of 
Wakefield may find it has 
become the envied custodian of a 
unique centre for international 
sport in Britain. On a lakeside 
site jost off Junction 39 on the 
Ml a sports Mecca costing in 
excess of £35 million could be 
functioning, the like of w hich 
has not been seen before in 

The proposed swimming pool, 
ice stadium and 
velodrome/indoor athletics 
arena will be of a design hitherto 
beyond British sportsmen's 
reach or even dreams. Tbe 
sports halls, pitches, circuits 
and training areas will be tai- 
lored to the exact requirements 
of the top-level competitor, in- 
ter-related, and set in an 
environment conducive to the 
attainment of sporting 


At the same tune, (here will be 
wide provision for leisure so that 
its catchment can include fam- 
ilies. tourists, campers and plain 
holidaymakers. It shotdd be a 
unique development, both in its 
approach to sport its funding 
and its management 

Its staff will comprise mainly 
young sports people on courses. 
A score or more of household 
names in sport who have studied 
tbe project regard it as the 
ultimate answer. 

ft is the near total lack of top- 
level facilities or the provision of 
stadia not up to tbe international 
mark that has hamstrung Brit- 
ish sporting success and driven 
frustrated sports people and 
trainers abroad. If Olympic 

golds are the aim then it is no 
use constructing racing pools 
where the lanes are not 2.5 
metres wide, pointless having ice 
rinks smaller than 60 metres by 
30 metres, disastrous not to 
cover a wooden velodrome. 

In the view of experts of the 
calibre of Bruce Longdon (for- 
mer coach to Daley Thompson), 
Brian Jacks, Terry Davies (fa- 
ther of Sharon) and Alan 
Minter. the facilities oa offer at 
Wakefield will be of such a high 
quality that national sports 

on th e line 

associations should be unable to 
resist staging their champion- 
ships there and indeed might 
also apply to move their national 
headquarters there. 

A week today the members of 
Wakefield Metropolitan Dis- 
trict Council will be presented 
formally with the detailed de- 
signs of the project and will be 
requested to grant ftontiine plan- 
ning permission. The recent 
local elections have not changed 
tbe councillors’ enthusiasm for 
this bold project, which will 
mark out the people of Wake- 
field as pioneers. Mr John 
Pearman. leader of the council, 
said: “J can see no major 
stumbling block ahead."

lershirc (22pts) bear Hamp- 
shire (2) by 146 runs. 

A startling collapse by 
Hampshire, who lost ail their 
wickets in 18 overs yesterday, 
brought Gloucestershire their 
first championship win this 
year with unexpected ease. 
Walsh, the West Indies fast 
bowler, took six lor 26 to 

and Hampshire were finally 
all out for 1 10 after two hours. 

Before this eventful, final 
act. Hampshire must have 
been encouraged by an im- 
maculate display of fast bowl- 
ing by Marshall, their own 
West Indian, who showed 
character as well as skill. 
Possibly jaded after his 

finish with II for 94 in the’ winter's work in the Caribbe- 


Hampshire made a promis- 
ing stan to their target of 257 
in 62 overs when Terry and 
Chris Smith passed 50 in the 
eleventh over. Suddenly, how- 
ever. the picture changed, with 
five front-rank batsmen dis- 
missed in 25 minutes as 11 
runs came. 

There seemed nothing in 
the pitch to explain such a 
disappointing showing. Walsh 
obtained lift and moved the 
bail both ways but never to an 
extent which justified 
Hampshire's complete failure. 
Like several sides, though. 
Hampshire this year have 
found it hard to find proper 
form during the season's frag- 
mented start to say nothing of 
the indifferent weather. 

It was sunny at Dean Park 
but distinctly breezy as Hamp- 
shire set out on their final 
innings. Lawrence was not 
able to break through and the 
wickets did not start to fail 
until Walsh changed ends 
when Lawrence was rested. 
Walsh's first ball had Terry 
caught at second slip and two 
balls later Robin Smith was 
held behind. 

Chris Smith gave a slip 
catch against Payne at the 
other end before Walsh had 
Nicholas taken down the leg 
side as the batsman aimed a 
loose hook. When Payne had 
Marshall held at the third 
attempt by Stovold, at first 
slip, the Hampshire innings 
was in ruins. Tremlett was 

an. Marshall has doae little 
this season and he remains 
slightly concerned about a 
sore knee. 

All this was put behind him 
as* he bowled 18 successive 
overs, broken only by lunch. 
In this time he took all six of 
the wickets to fall at a cost of 
43 runs. His accuracy and 
subtle variations in pace and 
swing always prevented 
Gloucestershire from scoring 
as rapidly as they wanted to

Roebuck sent in Richards and

Kaiser won two of his.last three 
contests on knockouts so Marsh 
will clearly have to be watchful. 

Marsh, who wants to win the 
world title this year and retire, 
does not mind whether he 
challenges Olrva in Naples or 
Rente Arredondo, of Mexico, 
the World Boxing Council 
champion, m the daunting 
Olympic Auditorium, in Los 
Angeles. But Frank Warren. 
Marsh's manager, has ruled out 

the hard- hitting Mexican at the 
moment, believing that he has a 
good chance of bringing Oliva to 
Monte Carlo in July. 

In the main supporting bout, 
the talented Errol Christie takes 
on a tough asognmrnt. Cliff 
Gilpin, of Telfont Gilpin can 
punch, once putting Uoyd 
Honcyghan. now the WBc 
number one. on the floor. 
Christie whose chin docs not 
take kindly to hooks, mayfiod 
himself in some difficult 
moments. ... 

Christie is exciting to watch as 
be bewilders h» opponents wife 
hand speed, but like most 
British boxers it is all attack. 
Against Gilpin be may be 
wishing be had some of the 
defensive qualities and lateral 
movement of Pat Cowdell. But 
this is a good march afi the same. 

Christie is still u>ing to get 
over that knock-out by “Mark 
jCavIor last November. If the 
Coventrv middleweight can 
stand up to Gilpin's punching 
and put the wily old campaigner 
on the floor it would, go a king 
way towards re-establishing him 
as one of Britain's best 

• Sammy Reeson- the unbeaten 
British cruiscrw eight champion 
from Battersea, has been nomi- 
nated as official challenger for 
the first European title bout in 
that division. Reeson. who is 
due to defend his British title 
against Andy Straughn 
(Hitcbin). gets hts chance after 
the European Boxing Union, at 
hs weekend meeting in inly, 
agreed to introduce the I3st 8lb

British light-middleweight title 
in impressive style from Prince

Another sorry 
hatting story 

Set to make 206 to win. 
Warwickshire failed badly at 
Edgbaston yesterday, felling 72 
runs short (Peter Marson 
writes). With Patel taking four 
for 37 and Illingworth three for 
47. Worcestershire were able to 
celebrate their first victory this 
season in the Britannic Assur- 
ance county championship'. 

Worcestershire had started 
out again in the morning at 103 
for three, and leading by 162 
runs: but. after Gifford had 
bowled D'Oliveira. an incisive 
thrust by Small, who took three 
wickets in 16 balls, caught 
Worcestershire off balance and 
heralded a startling collapse, 
wherin seven wickets fell for 43 
runs. Small finished with five 
for 35 and Gifford four for 34. 

Yet, Warwickshire have 
shown themselves to be pal- 
pably weak at laying down the 
foundations to an innings, and 
here again, as they set off. Dyer 
got out for one. and Smith, a 
hero with a hundred in the first 
innings, out now for four, with 
the score 18. 

Paul Cole, who has made an 
excellent start from bis new 
stable at Whatcombe. became 
fee first trainer to reach the 20- 
mark this season when he 
saddled a 29-1 double with 
Floose and Dream Chaser at 
Leicester yesterday. 

Floose made a sparkling de- 
but in the Wood bouse Eaves 
Maiden Stakes, lengthening his 
stride, in the style of a decent 
; youngster after 10 horses had 
been in wife a chance 300 yards

Into Africa: Ali Mazrui 
(BBC1 930pm) 

9.30pm) Professor AH Mazrui 
sets exit to do for Africa what 
Alistair Cooke once memorably 

did tor America. It is another 
of those prestige television 
extravaganzas designed to 
lend respectability to peak-hour 
viewing and maybe pick up 
an award or two. And it will raise 
all over again the problems 
associated with such 
enterprises: the extent to 
which we follow the presenter's 
gestures rather than listen to 
nis words: toe level of prior 
knowledge assumed in toe 
viewer, and toe suitability of toe 
television medium lor 
dispensing ideas and argument 
tn this first programme, amid 
much leaping about in time and 
topic, Professor Mazrui 
propounds his thesis that Africa 
Is toe product of a “triple 


nentage'', comprising its own 
indigenous culture. Islam and 
Western colonization. A Kenyan- 
bom Moslem who now 
teaches m Michigan, the 
professor encapsulates all 
three. But I fear he will come to 
be judged as a television 
personality, renter than for ftts 
cultural baggage, and his 
emphatic style may not be to all 
tastes. Nor may his 
exaggerated claims for his 
continent "cradle of 
mankind", "birth place of human 


730pm) is the first of two 
programmes - the second is 
tomorrow - about the last years 
of toe trading schooners. 

Built ar Porthmadog In North 
Wales, they carried slates 
across the Atlantic and their 
graceful nulls and tall spars 
gave them a beauty which was 
sharply at odds with life 
below deck. M-ted and under- 
paid, toe crews led a 
miserable existence to which, 
after the outbreak of toe First 
World War. was added toe 
danger of attack by the 
enemy. One Porthmadog 
schooner. Miss Morris, was 
intercepted by a German 
submarine in 1 91 7 and as the 
crew took to their lifeboats, toe 
vessel's last moments were 
filmed by a German sailor. The 
film was recently discovered 
in the imperial War Museum and 
provides a graphic epitaph to 
the age of toe tail ships.

England’s rivals 
at loggerheads 

From Stuart Jones, Football Correspondent, Monterrey 

The pot in Group F, which 
is based in by far the hottest of 
the World Cup venues, is 
already on the boil. While 
England are calmly finishing 
their preparations for the 
forthcoming matches, the 
Poles and the Moroccans are 
arguing with each other. And. 
most notably of alL the 
Portugese are arguing among 

The Portugese, who are 
staying up in the mountains 
with Bobby Robson's squad in 
Saltillo, have fallen into com- 
plete chaos only a week before 
the two nations stage their 
opening tie down in Monter- 
rey. Indeed, there is a danger 
that their entire squad may vet 
be sent home because of their 
extraordinary behaviour. 

They have astounded Jose 
Torres, their manager who led 
their attack with Eusebio to 
the semi-final of the 1966 
tournament, by refusing to 
train or even to play a practice 
match against local opposition 
last Sunday. They requested 
that their' dally allowance 
should be increased immedi- 
ately from $27 to $60. 

The size of their demand 
and particularly the timing of 

it has infuriated both the 
officials here and back in their 
own homeland. It also threat- 
ens to diminish the lead they 
hold in the popularity stakes 
in Monterrey. The industrious 
local people do not respect 
qualities of greed, selfishness 
and stubbomess. 

Even the Portugese Presi- 
dent has intervened in the 
sordid affair. Mario Soares 
sent a telegram yesterday say- 
ing that “as there is at stake 
the prestige of Portugal in one 
of the great sporting events of 
the world. I appeal to you to 
let serenity and common sense 
prevail over intransigence and 
put an end to a situation that 
the people of Portugal do not 

Joao de Deus Pinheiro. the 
Education and Culture Minis- 
ter. sent some other words to 
sting the conscience of the 
players. His telegram said that 
their reaction had “neither 
dignified the name of Portugal 
nor shown an understanding 
for the affection, jpy and 
excitement with which the 
Portugese had been backed”. 

Silva Rcsende. the president 
of the Portugese Football As- 

sociation. arrived in Mexico 
City last night but his atten- 
tion is sure to be taken away 
from the principle puqxxse of 
his visiL a series of FIFA 
meetings in the capital city. 
He is expected to contact 
Tomes today in an attempt to 
resolve the dispute. 

The problems that arose 
between England's other op- 
ponents in the first round were 
less extensive. Indeed, they 
were to be expected. They 
occurred during a Morrocan 
training session when two 
Polish spies were spotted sit- 
ting in the limited audience. 
The Africans promptly 
stopped and refused to resume 
until their unwelcome visitors 
had been escorted away. 

In the middle of the diplo- 
matic storms that are raging 
around the industrial centre to 
the north of Mexico, England 
have themselves stepped qui- 
etly and for the first time into 
the fiery heat The tempera- 
ture at ground level, during 
their initial practice here at a 
local and heavily guarded 
club, was 97 F. 

The figure might give the 
impression that the England 
squad is indeed inside "The 

Scottish preparations make 
Hansen’s absence mystifying 

It is a reflection of the 
severity of Scotland's World 
Cup first round group that the 
easiest points may well come 
against West Germany in their 
second match. “Some easy 
points.” muses Graeme 
Souness beside the swimming 
pool of the chalet-style hotel. 
Scotland's captain wears that 
slightly brooding look of a 
commander who knows that 
the enemy has several more 
battalions than he has: rather 
like Tommy Docherty, during 
a Press charity match in which 
our team was being somewhat 
overwhelmed, calling out to 
Billy Wright: “You hold two 
of them while I jockey four" 

Souness is going to be doing 
a lot of jockeying these next 
two weeks or so. He knows 
that, whether unavoidably or 
by Scotland’s own design, 
much of the play against 
Denmark. Germany and Uru- 

g uay is going to be in the Scots' 
alf of the field. He knows, 
just as his manager Alex 
Ferguson does, that Scotland 
have to play as differently 
from their recent performance 
against England as a piano 
sonata is from ragtime. 

“We have to play the others 
at their own game, a waiting 
match, to get behind the ball 
and pull them forward, trying 
to keep possession.” Souness 
says, relaxing as he recovers 
from a stomach bug which 
kept him for a day or two out 
of training. He would not say 
so, knowing from experience 
of that disastrous campaign in 
Argentina eight years ago just 
how important are loyalty and 
unity within the squad, but he 
is one of those who would be 
happier to have his former 
colleague. Hansen, intelligent- 
ly co-ordinating possession at 
the back. 

It is to Ferguson's credit 
that he does not shy away 
from explaining the 
inexplicable, of omitting one 
of Britain's most experienced 
defenders. He talks with grati- 
tude of Hansen's courteous 
acceptance on the telephone of 
the news that he was not in the

squad. “You can only take 22. 
good luck, and call me if you 
need me,” was the gist of a 
disappointed Hansen's re- 
sponse, in contrast to the 
money-for-moaning articles 
written by the Scottish for- 
ward. Speedie. and Francis, of 

Ferguson, and Bobby Rob- 
son. may possibly have been 
naive and soft-hearted in giv- 
ing Speedie and Francis exag- 
gerated grounds for believing 
they would be included in the 
final squads, but the respec- 
tive managers did not need a 
public lashing. That will come 
if their decisions are seen to 
have been wantonly mis- 
judged in the light of events. 

"Once you’ve made the 
decision, get- on with it,” 
Ferguson says. He has chosen 
a different path to fitness from 
Billy Bingham's, down the 
road with Northern Ireland, 
here in the tranquil ancient 
little city, the smallest and 
oldest state capital in the 
United Stales with a popula- 
tion of only 50.000. Santa Fe, 
almost hidden from view in 
leafy undulations as you ap- 
proach on Highway 25, is, to 
stretch a similarity, the Flor- 
ence of south-west America. 
Indian and contemporary art 
abounds in the many galleries 
and the current open air 
festival, and there is an open 
air opera house. It is art rather 
than stamina, which Ferguson 
has been seeking during the 
preparations: which, of 
course, makes Hansen's ab- 
sence even more odd. 

He argues that Hansen, like 
his Aberdeen partnership of 
Miller and McLeish and 
Albision at full back, is a one- 
position player. He wanted 
Albiston so as to give the 
option of being able to push 
MaJpas forward to midfield: 
which he did in training 
against Nonhem Ireland last 
week and might do against 
Denmark. Narey provides 
cover at right back, for Gough, 
and at centre back.

players on whom Ferguson 
places such emphasis is NicoL 
The Liverpool youngster 
plaved his early matches un- 
der Jock Stein at right back, 
but against Wales and En- 
gland this season was in 
midfield. At the moment he is 
nursing an abdominal strain — 
“I tried to get back to peak 
fitness too quickly after 
injury” - but Ferguson sees 
him as one of die team's 
exciting permutations. Pre- 
sumably this would be as an 
alternative to Strachan, if 
Scotland should find a pair of 
central attackers who permit 
them to play 4-4-2. 

Nicol was one of those who 
did not shine at Wembley. 
“That should have been a 
good send-off, a rewing-up, 
but I don’t think we lost 
, in confidence by the 

defeat.” Ferguson says, no 
doubt grateful for Stein's eight 
years of educating Scotsmen 
into believing that beating 
England should not be life's 
exclusive ambition. “I know 
that we would have been 
belter trying to make England 
impatient, instead of running 
at them, and in Mexico we 
cannol be shouting ‘here we 
come’ like John Wayne. So if 
the full backs go forward, the 
midfield will have to drop off 

Ferguson admits that Den- 
mark. in their opening match, 
present him with the most 
problems tactically, with their 
3-5-2 formation. He thinks 
they may be at their most 
vulnerable when they are, 
simultaneously, most danger- 
ous: coming forward in sup- 
port of Laudrup and Elkjaer. 
“Morton Olsen, their sweeper, 
is 35.” he says. Such thinking 
may not be wholly straw- 

The revelation of the train- 
ing here has been Nicholas, 
now considered certain to 
replace Dalglish, and to be 
partnered by either 
McAvennie or Sturrock. of 
Dundee United, so sharp on 
the turn. Archibald, though 
once with Ferguson at Aber- 
deen. is. sadly, the outsider a

Nicholas is suddenly all that 
he was at Celtic and has not 
been at Highbury. “Walter 
Smith (Ferguson's assistant) 
and I really went on at him for 
several days, and spelt it out to 
him", Feiguson says. “I want 
him beating defenders, and if 
he loses the ball, then blame 
me. When he used to be 
playing against Aberdeen. I 
never knew sitting on the 
bench what would happen 
next. That’s what we need

been nicknamed. Yet it would 
seem that the sobriquet is an 
exaggeration. If this is “Hell“. 
there are 'one or two of the 
party who are impatient to 
find out where “Heaven” 
might be. 

A mercifully fresh wind 
transformed a potentially ar- 
duous session into a relatively 
pleasant afternoon's work. 
The players still suffered. 
Shilton, for instance, lost sev- 
en pounds in weight and even 
Bryan Robson, who exercised 
for75 minutes in the company 
only of Fred Street, the team 
physiotherapist was found to 
be three pounds lighter.

champions. tomorrow. 
Lineker, who strained his 
wrist severely in Canada last 
weekend, has already been 
ruled out. He trained, “like a 
bird with one wing”, in a sling 
but those two problems are 
clearly nothing compared to 
those particularly in the 
Portugese camp.

Billy Bingham, not given to 
extravagant boasts or prom- 
ises. is growing increasingly 
confident that his Northern 
Ireland team will not let 
Britain down in the World 

At the end of a long 
domestic season, he has his 
largely unknown squad into a 
state of physical fitness that 
has impressed everyone who 
has seen them in training. 

And he is now able to declare: 
“We are in perfect shape. The 
only problem I have now is 
keeping us at this leveL” 

His players knuckled down 
to a gruelling training regime 
during two weeks in Albu- 
querque and the benefits were 
obvious the minute they 
crossed the border into 
MexicaThey have dropped 
down nearly 2,000 feet, and 
after their first training session 
in Guadalajara, Jimmy 
Nicholl, the mil back, said: 
“We are all surprised at how 
much easier this altitude is. 
There is no burning sensation 
in the back of the throat and 
everything comes that bit 

It represents success For 
Bingham's gamble on limiting 
the time he allowed for 
acclimatisation. He said: “I 
was a bh apprehensive about 
the time factor. I was not sure 
whether two weeks was long 
enough. But it has proved 
perfect. If we had gone any 
earlier it would have been 
over the top, with players 
going out of their minds with 

“Preparations have gone 
betier than I expected, and we 
have already hit a nice level. 
All I have got to do now is 
keep them there until the first 
match. I shan't be driving 
them any harder from now 
on", he added to the relief of 
his loyal bunch of players. 
Even if the Irish do confirm 
that they are the finest of the 
European contenders. Bing- 
ham shares their worries 
about the effects of the local 
condiiions.“The proof of the 
pudding is when we get down 
to the nitty-gritty.” he said. 
“The heal is intense at mid- 
day. and to sustain a good 
game in that sort of tempera- 
ture is extremely difficult. No 
matter how well prepared you 
arc. you have to conserve 
energy in those conditions.” 

The Irish, still whh a week 
to go before their opening 
game against Algeria, have 
slight fitness worries about 
two players who are looked on 
as essentia] starters in their 
opening line-up. Norman 
Whiteside is suffering from

Riots fuel security fear 

Riots ata domestic Mexican 
match last week, in which 
more than 40 people were 
injured, have increased fears 
of serious crowd violence at the 
World Cup finals which be- 
gins on Saturday. 

The riots, at a second 
division match in Pachuca, a 
few miles north of Mexico 
City, followed an incident a 
few days earlier in which the 
Argentine squad were jostled 
and insulted by Mexicans 
after arriving at the capital's 

The World Cap organizers 

sought to play down the 
Incidents but Mexican sports 
commentators, comparing 
some of their own supporters 
to English hooligans, appealed 
to the nation's football follow- 
ers to “keep it clean.” 

The Pacbuca match was the 
climax of the Mexican second 
division championship, with 
the local side competing 
against Qu ere taro for a place 
in the first divison next season. 
Despite the tumble, the World 
Cup organizers stressed that 
no additional security — 
suns would be taken.-

Yates wins stage 
but not jersey 

. By John Wikockson 

After the main part of the 
day's racing was cancelled 
because of gale force winds 
and traffic accidents across the 
Pennines. the second stage of 
the Milk Race was won yester- 
day by Sean Yates, from 
Sussex, the Peugeot rider. 
Normally, Yates would have 
taken the race lead, but the 
stage lime bonuses were sup- 
pressed, so Steve Joughin'of 
the Moducei team retained the 
yellow jersey. Several riders 
were unhappy with the 
officials' decision on the 

Much was promised by the 
scheduled 109-mile stage from 
Lancaster, and two of the 
main contenders, Paul Cur- 
ran. of Great Britain, an 
amateur, and Paul Watson, of 
Raleigh, a professional, had a 
25 second lead when the race 
was halted on Bowes Moor 
after 47 miles. Two caravans 
had jack-knifed on the A66 
road, and several other vehi- 
cles were blown over by a 
wind that was gusting to 60 
miles an hour. 

Curran said about his at- 
tack: “We were safer out fronL 
Even so. the wind blew Paul 
into me at one point.” After 
the race was stopped the 75 
riders were transported in 
their team cars to Newton 
Aycliffe, where they lined up 
again nearly three hours later 

to contest a 20-mile circuit 

•There were many attacks 
and counterattacks on the 
two laps of a hilly circuit, and 
the most decisive move came 
from Jesper Skibby, aged 22. 
the talented Danish amateur, 
who had also been active in 
the morning. He had joined a 
dangerous five-man break, 10 
miles out of Lancaster. 

In the afternoon, four miles 
from the finish- Skibby drew 
out from the pack the British 
professionals, Yates and Gra- 
ham Jones, both of whom 
have experienced riding in the 
Tour de France. The three 
riders stayed dear to the line, 
where Yates brilliantly sprint- 
ed for his fust victory of the 
.season. Jones's ANC-Halfords 
team mate Joey McLoughlin. 
won the dash for fourth place 
just two seconds behind. 

McLoughlin is expected to 
ride strongly for the race 
leadership on today's hilly 
stage through the Yorkshire 
dales to Harrogate, while Cur- 
ran and Watson are hopi ng to 
continue their unfinished . 
business of yesterday.

Harris in search of a fast time 

By Pat Butcher, Athletics Correspondent 

The combination of loom- 
ing selection dates - less than 
3 month away — for the 
Commonwealth Games, and 
the inclement British weather 
is sending athletes scunying 
across Europe in search of 
favourable conditions for 
qualifying times. 

After a superlative spring 
road running season, during 
which he beat many of the 
world's top distance runners, 
Steve Harris turns his atten- 
tion to the 10.000 metres on 
the Florence track this eve- 
ning; Harris has only ever run 
one L0.000 metres before, on a 

grass track in his native Here- 
ford five years ago. “ ! did 
around 32 minutes and I won 
by about a kilometre but I’m 
hardly counting that as a 
performance,” he said. 

His aim, tltis time, is to run 
28 minutes or better and if it is 
appreciably better then he can 
avoid the Commonwealth tri- 
al at that distance in the AAA 
championships at Crystal Pal- 
ace on June 20, two days after 
which the selections for Edin- 
burgh will be made. 

Peter Elliott follows up his 
successful comeback win in 
the UK championship 800 

metres on Monday with an- 
other race at that distance m 
Stavanger, Norway, this eve- 
. ning. EUiott wants to do 800 
metres in the European cham- 
pionships in Stuttgart in late 

Steve Ovett, another man 
moving up distance, that is to 
say to 5,000 metres for this 
summer’s championships, de- 
cides today whether to follow 
up his 2000 metres victory in 
Seville last Saturday in 5min 
1.4sec with another race in 
Spain, this time in Zaragassa, 
over -3.000 metres tomorrow 

A wide range of positions in Education appeals every Monday.

From Rex Bellamy, Paris 

There are not many tenuis : 
payers who use words like 
“rreathity” when discussing a . 
match. Paul McNamee does. 
Bat McNamee is unusually*, 
artkalate as Australians go — 
as any breed goes, for that 
matter. As his name and dark 
curl? hair suggest, he has Irish 
blood in him, which tends to 
opai the floodgates of loquac- 
ity Id any man. In short, 
McNamee is good with words. 

McNamee pops into the 
news when winning doubles 
championships or wheu 
achieving something special in 
singles — as was the case here 
in 1980 when he beat John 
McEnroe in a match derided 
by four tie-breaks. Yesterday, 
McN amee jumped off a shelf ' 
hi the memory to beat the sixth 
seed, Jeakim Nystrom, by 1-6, 
6-3, 6-2, 6-0 m the fast round 
of the French championships. 

We knew that McNamee, 
aged 31, had been out of the 
game for five months after 
surgery, on October !, to sort 
out a chronic kidney affluent 
that suddenly became really 
nasty. But we also knew that 
he had worked himself back 
into form, whereas Nystrora 
had gone off the bod by 
playing (no much and winning 
too often. It was dear that 
something interesting might 
be cooking. 

Nystrom was the first to 
talk to the Press. Uke most of 
the Swedes, be somehow man- - 
ages to be both reticent and •' 
Hrarming. Nystrom flirted 
with a droll kind of humour. 
“Maybe I have played too 
modi,” he said. “But you do 
not expect to win or reach the 
finals of every tournament I 
played so well that E had to 
play every day. Today, I frit 
tired after the first set and, 
later, even more tired.” 
Nystrom always looks tired, so 
it can bo hard to teU. - 

“When Paul is playing well, 
be is tough to beat” Nystrom 
added. “He was playing very 
deep, hitting the trad high, and 
coming in— and k was difficult

to pass him.” Nystrom still 
considers that clay is his best 
surface: w if is more fun than 
indoor or hard courts.” 

Enter McNamee, with sup- 
porting evidence: “Variety can 
be effective on any surface. On 
day one has the opportunity to 
do many things, to show one's 
repertoire, especially against 
somebody who is not attacking 
that much. These days, yoa 
have a pretty good chance of 
drawing one of the Swedes in“ 
the first round. But I am a 
competent day-court player. 

“Joakim is very good. He 
plays to quite a high standard, 
and does not make many 
errors. But he is fairly predict- 
able. 1 tried to combat that 
with creativity — angles and 
drops. But for a white it was 
not going very well.” 
McNamee teased Nystrom 
with a diversity of questions on 
the backhand, and made prof- 
itable use of the drop shot 
wheu playing against the wind 
— which, as McNamee printed 
out is the time to play it 
One took time off from all 
that creativity to watch Henri , 
Leconte beating David de4 
Miguel, of Spain. One would 
take time off from almost 
anything to watch Leconte, 
who Is outrageously exciting. 

He .has looks, personality, 
power, touch, and, above ad 
else, is a swaggering adventur- 
er — if yoa like, an Uie Nastase 

without the nonsense.

Durie took only six game*

round ■ of the United States 
championships, «nd it was a 
similar story yesterday: 6-2, 6- 
4. This was the first singles 
Miss Hobbs had won in five 
tournaments this year. Her 
tactics were sound — 
played deep to the backhand* ’ 
and looped the ball to Miss 
Dune's forehand — and she 
kept her composure during *
