over Reagan 
Salt 2 move 


From Michael Binyrm, Washingto n 








A bitter ideological 
surfaced yesterday over Presi- 
dent Reagan's reuuni cation of 
the Salt 2 arms treaty, with 
three of America's leading 
arms control experts attacking 
the decision as a “disaster” 
that would lead to as unprece- 
dented superpower arms race. 

‘ Hardliners within the Ad- 
ministration and Congress are 

S ’ " it at finally. persuading 
ent Reagan not to com- 
ply with the accord, but the 
decision has dismayed leading 
arms control moderates, who 
fear for the future of arms 
reduction negotiations with 
the Soviet Union. 

Senior officials of the State 
Department have fought to 
keep the United States within 
the limits of the unratified 
treaty, which is strongly sup- 
ported by Nato allies as a key 
instrument governing super- 
power arms relations. 

Mr George Schultz, Secre- 
of State, is attempting to 
their concern at the Nato 
Ministers meeting in 

Canada 

An obviously delighted Mr 
Caspar Weinberger, the De- 
fence Secretary and a leading 
Administration hardliner, re- 
called dial President Reagan 
last summer agreed to “go the 
extra mile” for arms control 
by continuing temporarily to 
observe the limits of the * 
treaty. 

“The President has trav- 
elled that last mfle and we are 
no longer bound by - that 
flawed agreement It’s 'very 
simple,” fie said. 

Mr Gerard Smith, who 


negotiated the 1972 Anli- 
Ballistk Missile and the Salt 1 
treaties, said die President’s 
move could not have been 
based on any military calcula- 
tions, was opposed by the 
Joint Chiefs of- Staff, and was 
the result of ideological hostil- 
ity to arms control by conser- 
vatives within the 
Administration. 

It was the second lag step, 
following the attempt to rein- 
terpret the ABM treaty last 
autumn, on the path away 
from arms control. “It looks to 

“Telling the Russians 
arms control is dead is not 
going to. encourage then 
to be forthcoming in 
negotiations” — Mr Ge- 
rard Smith, who nego- 
tiated the 1972 Anti- 
Ballistic Missile and the 
Salt 1 treaties. 

meas though we are abandon- 
ing the notion of parity for 
superiority,” he said. 

He could not recall any 
previous step as serious as 
that “Telling the Russians 
arms control is dead is not 
going to encourage them to be 
forthcoming in negotiations,” 
he said. 

Mr Robert McNamara, the 
Secretary of Defence under 
Presidents Kennedy and 
Johnson, said that without the 
Salt limits* die world faced a 
“totally unconstrained arms 
race”. Though the decision 
might be merely an attempt to 
appease the Republican right- 
wisgrtbe Soviet Union would 


see it as as American stri 
for nuclear superiority, 
could guarantee Moscow 
would immediately react by 
increasing its inter-continen- 
tal ballistic missile aisenaL 

. Mr Paul Wanike, who nego- 
tiated the Salt 2 treaty under 
President Carter, said the 
Russians would not now scrap 
older SS-17, 18, and 19 mis- 
siles when they deployed the 
new SS-24s. They could triple 
the number of warheads on 
these older weapons, adding 
some 6,000 to the SS-18s 
alone. This was a dear threat 
to US security. 

The Russsians already had a 
lead in ICBMs. 

The three dismissed Mr 
Reagan's argument that he 
was only responding to Soviet 
violations of Salt 2. Mr 
Wamke said ft was beyond 
question that the Russians 
had scrupulously observed the 
central erne of the treaty, the 
numerical limits on missiles. 
They had cheated on second- 
ary aspects, but the US re- 
sponse, “gutting the central 
provision of the treaty”, was 
disproportionate. 

They told a press confer- 
ence, held by the Arms Con- 
trol . Association, which 
strongly supports existing 
treaties, that Mr Reagan had 
to be taken at his word when 
he said the US would no 
longer abide by Salt 2. 

They appealed to Congress 
to save the treaty, aigiring that 
it should withhold strategic 
modernization funds request- 
ed by the Administration for 
next year’s defence budget.

Inquiry to 
decide on 
Navy ship 

By Rodney Cowtos 
Defence Correspondent 

The Prime Minister acted 
yesterday to resolve a contro- 
versy which has been raging 
for at hast the last five years 
over the design of Royal Navy 
warships/ 

It was announced by the 
Ministry of Defence that Mrs 
Thatcher had derided that an 
independent inquiry should 
be set up to settle the argu- 
ment whether the best design 
for modern warship up to the 
size of a destroyer is the 
traditional Jong-thm ship, or a 
radical new “short-faf* vessel, 
which, ft is claimed, could be 
built for about 25 percent less 
t han normal warships. 

The issue was fought in the 
early 1 980s when the design of 
a new frigate, the Type 23 
Duke class, wasbeing decided. 
The first of which, HMS 
Norfolk, is now under con- 
structional Yarrow’s shipyard 
on Clydeside. The Navy de- 
cided to adopt a ship of 
traditional lines, 436 feet long 
and with a beam of 49 feet in 
preference to a short-fat de- 
sign of about 311- feet length 
and 63 feet beam. 

The intention to set up an 
independent inquiry was an- 
nounced with the publication 
of a repent which concluded 
that some of the technical 
advice on which the Royal 
Navy's derision was based 
was wrong, and in some cases 
opinions exnressed were “not 
well “ 


an 


rhe report was produced by 
unofficial committee head- 
ed by Admiral of the Fleet 
Lord HiU-Ncrtbn. a former 
Chief of the Naval Staff. Chief 
of the Defence Staff and 
chairman of Nato’s Military 
Committee. Lord Hffl-Norton 
said that he had been invited 
to carry out the inquiry ax the 
instigation of The 10 Downing 
Street policy unit 
Other members of the com- 
mittee were Lord Straihcona, 
a former Minister of State for

Argentina 
attacked 
over ship 

By Nicholas Ashford 
Diplomatic Correspondent 

Britain fired a verbal broad- 
side at Argentina yesterday 
following the sinking of a 
Taiwanese fishing vessel on 
Wednesday, accusing Buenos 
Aires of trying to pursue its 
sovereignty daun in the South 
Atlantic by force. 

A toughlyworded statement 
by the Foreign Office deplored 
the Argentine use of force 
against an unarmed vessel on 
the high seas as being unjusti- 
fied and excessive. 

The Chian Der 3 was sunk 
by an Argentine gunboat a few 
miles outside the 150-mile 
British-imposed protection 
zone around the Falkland Is- 
lands after its captain defied 
orders to proceed to Argenti- 
na. 

“The British Government 
rejects Argentina's claim to 
exercise jimsdiction over the 
waters in question,” the state- 
ment said. "This .action 
amounts to an attempt to pur- 
sue a sovereignty claim by 
force.” 

Britain has not yet made a 
formal protest to Argentina 
because it was unclear yester- 
day on what basis it had decid- 
ed to take action against the 
trawler. 

If as seems fikriy, Argenti- 
na claims the vessel was in- 
fringing Argentina’s territorial 
waters around the islands, 
then tire British Government 
will make a sharp protest 
“If they don’t make such a 
riaim then their action 
amounts to an act of interna- 
tional piracy,” one British 
official said yesterday. 

Argentina’s -strong-arm tac- 
tics against the Chian Der 3 
mad other Taiwanese vessels is 
seen in London as an attempt 
by Argentina to force Taiwan 
to sign a bilateral fisheries 
agreement with Buenos Aires. 
This would presumably lead 
to moves to.pwsuade other 
nations fishing in the South 
Atlantic to enter into similar

Botham 
banned 
until end 
of July 

By John Goodbody 

Ian Botham was banned 
yesterday from playing aO 
first-class and international 
cricket until Jnly 31 by the 
Test and • County Cricket 
Bond in a surprisingly light 

ruling by its disciplinary 
committee. 

Botham'S two month sus- 
pension for bringing the game 
into disrepute after admitting 
smoking cannabis m<>np * he 
win miss all three Tests 
against India, two one-day 
Texaco Internationals, one 
Test against New Zealand, 
and fixtures for his county 
Somerset. 

The Engiand aft-rounder 
was found “guilty” on four 
charges by the nine-man disci- 
plinary committee chaired by 
Mr Prter Bromage, a Birming- 
ham lawyer, alter a seven-hour 
hearing at Lord's. 

The charges were that he 
used camabis, admitted to 
haring used denying 

in the past that he had used 
drugs and w— irfag public pro- 
nouncements without clear- 
ance of his county. 

The bearing was called after 
a signed article by Botham in 
The Mail on Sunday on May 
18 contained an admission 
that be had smoked marijuana 
in his younger days. The board 
reacted to the article by bar- 
ring Botham from last 
weekend's two Texaco interaa- 
<i«iil« « wind India wfaDe it 
conducted the inquiry. 

Mr Alan Herd, a solicitor 
wbo represented the England 
and Somerset aD-nmnder at 
the hearing, said aft er w a rds: 
“We are obviously very disap- 
pointed. We win be consider- 
ing an appeal to the cricket 
council over the weekend.” 

Botham left the hearing 
with an action Ml of the 
enterprise be displays on the 
field. John Emburey, his En- 
gland team male, fad his car 
running at the back door of the 
parifien and with most of the 
50 members of the media 
watching other doors, he sped 
through the Grace <Sjfes. - 

Botham was fined £100 in 
Scunthorpe let February for 
possessing 2.19 grammes of 
cannabis. Earlier this mouth 
detectives questioned him 
abort allegations tint he took 
drags during his charity walk 
from John O'Groats to Lands 
End which raised £714,000 for 
leukaemia research. 


In March 1984 The Mail On 
Sunday alleged that Botham 
fad smoked “pot” during 
England's cricket tour of New 
Zealand. Botham instigated a 
libel action against the news- 
paper, but in his signed article 
on May 18 he said he was 
withdrawing the action. 

Botham has scored 4^77 
runs for England and is two 
wickets short of Dennis 
Lillee's world record of 355 
Test wickets.

Sogat ballot on 
offer goes ahead 


The ballot of print. union 
workers on Mr Rupert 
Murdoch's £50 million pay- 
off package is to go ahead 
despite a split in the ranks of 
Sogat ’82. 

The London Machine 
branch of the union failed at a 
tiiiee-hcur private hearing si 
the High Court yesterday to 
get an injunction to stop the 
ballot. 

But Mr Bill Freeman, the 
branch spokesman, said out- 
side the court that the judge, 
Mr Justice Savflle, had agreed 
with them that the union had 
acted in breach of its rules. 

“But the union gave under- 
takings that ail the members 
who had been deprived of 
voting rights would get the 
ballot papers,” he added. 

Miss Brenda Dean, the 
union's general secretary, was 
not at foe hearing but both 
sections of the union were 
legally represented. 

London branches of Sogat 
have 4,500 members who 
were dismissed when Mr Mur- 
doch switched printing of The 
Sun, The Times. The Sunday 
Times and the News of the 
World to Wapping, east Lon- 
don. The ballot is set for next 
week. 

The National Graphical As- 
sociation is to ballot its 900 
dismissed members on the 
offer. But the 31-man execu- 
tive of the NGA, the second 
hugest union involved in foe 
18-week dispute was told yes- 
terday to expect a massive 
vote against foe deaL 

Details of foe ballot agreed 
by the executive yesterday will 
be completed early next week 
at another executive meeting. 
But h is unlikely that NGA 
leaders will make any recom- 
mendation after foe strong 
opposition voiced at a mass 
meeting on Wednesday night. 

NGA members will be giv- 


en their ballot papers at mass 
meetings in central London 
next week and foe vote will be 
known before the June 6 
deadline set by Mr Murdoch. 

Mr Tony Dubbins. NGA 
general secretary, acknowl- 
edged yesterday foal if 
Sc^at workers voted iDZixeju 
it would have a “dramatic 
effect” on foe dispute. “We 
have to recognize that it would 
damage our chances of bring- 
ing the dispute to a successful 
conclusion,” be said. 

“The decision of foe NGA 
council is to agree to put out 
Murdoch's offer to a ballot of 
our members and to meet foe 
timetable that has been laid 
down. 

“The subject of a recom- 
mendation was hardly dealt 
with — most of foe lime was 
spent talking about foe ques- 
tion of a ballot and foe 
timetable. 

“The key issue was foe fact 
that our members took part in 
a secret ballot prior to getting 
involved in this dispute. And 
they ought to be given an 
opportunity to express their 
opinion by having a further 
vote on this particular offer.” 

Mr Dubbins reported to foe 
executive the feelings of 
Wednesday's mass meeting. 
He said that there was “vwy 
strong opposition” to accept- 
ing foe deal by rank and file 
members. 

The revised five-point offer 
would give four week’s pay for 
every completed year of ser- 
vice with a ceiling of £155 a 
week and a minimum pay- 
ment of £2,000. 

The unions would be given 
the Times and Sunday Times 
buildings in Gray's Inn Road 
and foe question of union 
recognition at Wapping and 
Glasgow would be reviewed 
after a year. 


Dispute 
warning 
by head 
teachers 

By Lucy Hodges 
Education Correspondent 

The leader of the biggest 
head-teachers' anion served 
notice on the Government 
yesterday that it faces a 
dispute “of the gravest 
magnitude” if it fa»k to fund a 
new deal for teachers this year. 

In his speech to the Nation- 
al Association of Head Teach- 
ers conference in Cardiff, Mr 
David Hart, general secretary 
of the 26300-member union, 
set Britain's head teachers on 
a possible collision coarse with 
the Government. 

Later he said that if the 
Government did not produce 
more money than it had 
promised for a deal this an- 
dmm, the association would 
have to consider industrial 
action. It would be the first 
time heads fare taken action 
overpay. 

Accusing the Government of 
having no coherent education 
policy, he said that any new 
deal for the profession negoti- 
ated under the auspices of the 
concilia fion service, Acas, 
would be for more expensive 
than the £450 million of new 
money set aside by the Gov- 
ernment. (The Government 
describes the money available 
as £1-25 biQion). 

Speaking to journalists 
about his comments, Mr Hart 
said.- “I am really in effect 
giving a warning to the Gov- 
ernment that if they maintain 
that only £450 mill ion or 
£li5 billion is foe sum avail- 
able for the Acas deal, foe 
heads will not be able to 
maintain the stance they took 
in last year’s dispute. 

Talks are now going on 
between teachers' onion and 
the employers at Acas abort a 
package of reforms, including 
a new pay structure. 

“Only a jointly negotiated 
agreement can put sufficient 
political pressure on the Gov- 
ernment which will know foe 
price of failure on its part to 
deliver foe resources,” Mr 
Hart told foe conference. *Tn 
case anybody i? on&r: any 
I illusions 1 mast emphasize 
that foe price woeM fa a 
dispute of the gravest magni- 
tude from which the NAHT 
coaid under do drcmnstances 
remain neutraL” 

In the year-long teachers' 
pay dispute heads did their 
best to keep schools running 
normally. The message of Mr 
Hart's speech is that they are 
unlikely to do so again . Mr 
Hart emphasized that he was 
speaking personally. 

He made a scathing refer- 
ence to foe “ragbag of pseudo 
policy being dangled before 
the public” by foe Govern- 
ment. What was required was 
more money, better pay for 
teachers, and an attempt to put 
foe country on a par with 
Europe, Japan and foe United 
States.

Hippies 
ordered 
out of 
farm 

By Michael McCarthy 
and Robin Young 

Mr Leslie Attwell, whose 
farmland at Lyte’s Cary, near 
Yeovil in Somerset, has been 
occupied by about 300 travel- 
ling hippies since the week- 
end, yesterday obtained a 
possession order enabling him 
to evict them. 

Ai the High Court Mr 
Justice Savili, sitting in cham- 
bers, took only five minutes to 
grant the order to Mr Attwell's 
lawyers. Mr Attwell. who suf- 
fers from angina and bad to be 
taken to hospital when he 
collapsed as the hippie convoy 
moved to his land, did not 
travel to London for the 
hearing. 

The order relates to the 
whole of the AttweOs' 101-acre 
farm and is against five named 
trespassers “and every other 
person in occupation of the 
farm”. The five are Nick 
James, Scoop (a male), Carol 
Warner, Sid Rawle and Gwen 
(a female). 

The next step, Mr AttwelTs 
legal representatives said, was 
for a warrant of execution to 
be issued. It was likely that 
eviction could not take place 
until today. 

The hippies have been 
evicted five times in the past 
three weeks since foiling to 
establish a “peace camp” at 
Stonehenge, where they hoped 
to hold a mid-summer 
festival 

Last night the 300 hippies, 
wbo travel in a convoy of 100 
vehicles, had derided not to 
wait for the bailiffs and were 
getting ready to move out. It 
was thought they might head 
towards north Devon. 

During the day about SO 
members of the “peace 
convoy” had gone into Yeovil 
in an old bus, and collected 
approximately £3.000 from 
the benefit offices of . the 
Department of Employment 
and the Department of Health 
and Social Security. 

Spokesmen for foe benefit 
offices said that J08 hippies 
had:' been paid, almost all 
rc.viving bciween £30. and 
£35. One hundred and eighty 
hippies bad made claims. 

Four hippies were arrested 
during the afternoon for shop- 
lifting and other alleged 
offences. 

The hippies' convoy has 
been camped on Mr Attwell's 
prime 30-acre sileage fields, 
and ruined £2,000 worth of 
winter feed. Mr Attwell has 
been told that legal expenses 
could add another £5.000 to 
his costs. 

At present mass trespass on 
private land is only a civil 
offence 

Mr Chris French, of the 
National Fanners’ Union, 
who visited Mr Attwell, said: 
“It is outrageous to see a 
farmer's crop destroyed in this 
way." 


Geldof derides UN ‘thugs’ 


From Zoriana Pysariwsky 
New York 

Bob Geldof organizer of 
Live Aid and Spprt Aid events 
to alleviate famine in Africa, 
yesterday attacked the United 
Nations General Assembly's 
special session on Africa de- 
scribing it as “laughable”. 

Referring to the participants 
in the session, who include 22 
ministers, the Irish rock star 


said that he wished that 
“they’d grow up in this place, 

for once in their 

lives”. 

He singled oui ihe speech by 
Sir Geoffrey Howe, the For- 
eign Secretory, as a “classic”in 
this tine. 

“It made the right noises 
and promises, but nothing 
further," he said. 

Geldof made the remarks at 


a press conference before lis- 
tening to the UN debate. He 
criticized both the West and 
the Soviet bloc for introducing 
a Cold War tone in the debate 
by resorting to “ideological 
side-swiping”. 

The UN, he said, was “run 
by thugs or representatives of 
thugs".

Chernobyl toll up to 21 as transplants fail 


Fran Thomson Prentice 
Science Correspondent 
Cologne 

The death toil from the 
Chernobyl disaster fans risen 
from 19 to 21 with .another 30 
victims in a “serioas 
condition”, Russian doctors 
said yestaday. 

A farther 160 who were 
takes to hospital ore still 
receiving treatment there, and 
bene marrow transplants, car- 
ried out to try to saw the lives 
of tire worst affected fate 
proved to be “not very 
effective” tl»r said. . 

New details uf the casualties 
and iff the evacuation of 
lOfijioa people from foe 
Chernobyl area mid compari- 


sons of the ifisaster with a 
nuclear attack were given at 
foe opening yesterday iff foe 
.world congress of Internation- 
al Physicians for foe Preven- 
tion of Nnclear War 
(IPPNW). 

The details were disclosed 
by Dr Eugeni Cbazov, foe 
Russian co-president of foe 
organization, and Professor 
Leonid Ilyin, a member of foe 

Soviet Union's Academy of 
Medical Sciences, who has 
visited foe disaster zone. 

All those most seriously 
affected were workers mid 
engineer? at the power station 
or members of foe fire team 
who tried to smother the blaze 
at the reactor. Professor Byin 
said- 


Moscow (AP) — The gov- 
ernment news agency Novosti 
yesterday corrected a report it 
had transmitted that indicated 
as many as 1,000 people were 
injured in the Chernobyl nu- 
clear disaster. The number of 
injured was actually closer to 
300. foe figure Soviet officials 
had given before Wednesday's 
report by Novosti. 


“The most modern methods 
of treatment have bear used 
bat as many of bs thought from 
foe very beginning a bone 
marrow transplant has not 
proved very effective” Profes- 
sor Byte told a news confer- 
ence. .“Eleven of foe 19 


patients who received (his 
operation have died”. 

They were among 129 vic- 
tims flown from the disaster 
area to Moscow in three 
aircraft on the morning of the 
accident on April 26. Another 
1 80 with radiation injuries and 
burns were evacuated foe fol- 
lowing day. 

Professor Ilyin said the 
treatment of the 299 most 
seriously i0 had produced “a 
great deal of new medical 
information about radiation 
sickness and its treatment. 
Within three months we shaft 
make available a detailed 
report on all foe material that 
we have”. He added: “In a 
nadear conflict foe same kind 


of radiation that we have seen 
will be prevalent." 

All possible measures nor- 
mally taken in treating radia- 
tion disease were followed, 
including transfusions of blood 
components and the use of 
“new and old” antibiotics. 

Professor Ilyin said a delay 
of 36 hours in evacuating 
people within 30 kflometres of 
the accident “was to some 
extent foe result of local 
authorities underestimating 
somewhat the dangers of 

radioactivity”. 

Once underway, the entire 
evacuation was completed in 
abort three hours with 1,100 
buses sent simultaneously to 
foe area; 230 medical teams

Hailsham backs power 
for complaint board 
over dismissing judges 

By Frances Gibb, Legal Affairs Correspondent 




Lord Hailsham of St Mary- 
letxme, the Lord Chancellor, 
said yesterday that he was in 
favour of the creation of a 
complaints board able to rec- 
ommend the removal of 
judges. 

At present the power to 
remove a judge rests with the 
Lord Chancellor and Lord 
Hailsham said that was unsat- 
isfactory as h made him both 
“judge and jury” 

- A board to which he could 
refer complaints, where ap- 
propriate. for a report to 
advise him. seemed “a very 
good idea**. 

' The Lord Chancellor's com- 
ments mark his first public 
support for such a board, 
which was proposed in a 
report in 1972 by Justice, the 
all-party law reform group, 
under Mr Justice Webster 
(then a QQ. They are made at 
a time of controversy over 
Judge Pickles, the northern 
circuit judge who has attacked 
the present system of judicial 
appointments and the Lord 
Chancellor's role in appoin- 
ting and dismissing judges. 

At the same time, however, 
Lord Hailsham again firmly 
rejected the idea of an adviso- 
ry board on judicial appoint- 
ments, which is likely to be 
examined by a working party 
set up by the Bar later this 
year. 

In an interview on BBC 
Radio 4, he said that such a 


system would not be more 
open than the present one. *1t 
would not be subject to parlia- 
mentary accountability; it 
would be a permanent mafia 
of the judges appointing one 
another or the Bar appointing 
themselves to higher office, i 
don't think the public would 
approve of that” 

Under our constitution 
someone had to be responsible 
and in the present case “that 
person is me", he said. “The 
idea that I would act as a 
brooding dictator is absurd 
from officials who have never 
met me.” 

He was speaking at the 
launch in London of a new 
booklet from his department 
setting out for the public and 
the profession the policies and 
procedures he follows when 
selecting judges and silks. 

Lord Hailsham said that be 
wanted to dispel “any linger- 
ing sense of mystery or obscu- 
rity that there may be about 
how this work is done”. 
Consultations had to be confi- 
dential but there was no secret 
about the policy or procedure 
and he bad therefore decided 
“an outline should be made 
generally available". 

The aim was to ensure that 
selection methods were as 
“efficient, fair and open as 
they can be made” and main- 
tain the highest standards on 
the bench. 

The Lord Chancellor ap- 


points or recommends for 
appointment about 2,500 
holders of judicial office 
across a score of tribunals in 
England and Wales, after wide 
consultation with the pro- 
fession and other appropriate 
bodies. 

He has long been troubled 
by his power of dismissal 
under the Courts Act, 1971 
which is wide and ill-defined, 
and does not provide for 
rights of appeal or a proper 
hearing of an allegation. 

A new complaints board 
would not need legislation. 
Lord Hailsham said yesterday 
that he did not envisage it 
would be needed often; he has 
only dismissed a judge once in 
the past 10 years; he was Judge 
Bruce Campbell, who had 
been convicted of smuggling. 

His power to dismiss a 
judge for misconduct is con- 
tained in section 17 of the 
Couns Act, 1971, which Lord 
Hailsham himself saw through 
Parliament. But yesterday fie 
admitted he had been a little 
“cavalier” when the Act was 
passed, not imagining he 
would ever have to use it 

Under that section the Lord 
Chancellor “may, if he thinks 
fit, remove a circuit judge 
from office on the grounds of 
incapacity or misbehaviour”, j

Demise of Fifth of Attack on 
Assembly mail hit committee 


supported 

By Sheila Gunn 
Political Staff 

Mr Peter Archer, Opposi- 
tion spokesman on Northern 
Ireland, yesterday backed 
plans for abolishing the 
Northern Ireland Assembly. 

labour Party members. So- 
cial Democrats and Provision- 
al Sinn Fein, have refused to 
take their seats in the assem- 
bly, leaving the Unionists to 
turn it into a forum for 
opposing the Anglo-Irish Ag- 
reement 

“This makes a nonsense of 
the statutory basis for -the 
assembly and, whatever future 
bodies there may be, it would 
be better to write off some- 
thing so consistently associat- 
ed with disagreement and 
frustration," Mr Archer said. 

“It is now up to the Govern- 
ment to create the conditions 
for successful talks among all 
the parties in Northern Ire- 
land with the aim of finding a 
way forward. But until that 
process has taken place an 
assembly can have no con- 
structive role.” 

The Government will an- 
nounce the assembly's fate by 
the end of next week. 

I is abolition will leave the 
Ulster Unionists without an 
official forum while they con- 
tinue to boycott foeCommons. 

Mr Archer said that there 
was still time for negotiations 
before tensions were raised 
during the “loyalist” march- 
ing season, which starts in 
July. 


by strike 

By Patricia Clough 

About eight min i nn letters, 
more rtian a fifth of Britain's 
mail, were held up in post 
offices yesterday as a result of 
li ghtning strikes by &500 
sorting workers in a dispute 
over rotas. 

The action started when 
2,000 workers in Leeds came 
out on a 24-hour official 
stoppage and woe followed, 
unofficially, by colleagues in 
Liverpool, Sheffield and die i 
Wl district of London. Work- ; 
ers in Bradford, Halifax, Hud- 
dersfield and Wakefield joined 
in after some staff were sus- 
pended. - . 

The Post Office said that it 
would be a day or two before 
the backlog was cleared. 

The strikes were over the 
implementation of an efficien- 
cy agreement reached between 
foe Post Office and foe Union 
of Communkations Workers 
last year. 

The scheme, designed to 
match foe number of sorters to 
foe peaks and troughs in the 
flow of mail, introduces con- 
tractual overtime instead of 
foe present voluntary system. 

The union is demanding aa 
extra half-hour’s rest-time a 
shift, which foe Post Office 
says is unacceptable. After 
foiling to reach a settlement on 

foe issue for nearly a year, it 
introduced the new system on 
foe early shift at Leeds to 
which foe union responded 
first with an overtime ban and 
that with foe strike.

Parliamentary Staff 

The Labour Patty's launch 
of its Black and Asian Adviso- 
ry Committee was disrupted 
at the Commons yesterday by 
protests from black party 
members and claims that Miss 
Jo Richardson, MP, the chair- 
man, was a “crass racist”. 

The committee, set up to 
increase participation of black 
and Asian people in the party 
after last year’s conference 
rejected separate black sec- 
tions. was denounced by foe 
black section movement as 
“stillborn and launched in a 
climate of almost universal 
hostility”. 

■ Black Section News, issued 
by Mr Paul Shanna at the 
press conference, said: “ The 
committee has no musde, 
respresents no one and its 
terms of reference specifically 
exclude policy formulation. 
Its role is simply to advise on 
how to solicit the black vote.” 

Miss Richardson was at- 
tacked by Mr Muhammad 
Haque, a co-opted member of 
the Inner London Education 
Authority, from Tower Ham- 
lets, east London, who shout- 
ed: “You are a crass racist and 
it is embarrassing to mention 
your series of racist 
statements.” 

After foe meeting Miss 
Richardson said: “I can un- 
derstand why black people 
resent having a white person 
in the chair. It does not upset 
me. I hotly deny I am a racist” 


Princess Anne 

Award for 
. redundant 
apprentice 

Princess Anne presented a 
star apprentice with an award 
yesterday, six days after he 
tost his job. 

Adrian Pollard, aged 20, of 
Devizes, Wiltshire, runner-up 
in the Western region’s Ap- 
prentice Agricultural Engineer 
of foe Year honours, received 
foe award at the Bath and 
West Show at Shepton Mallet, 
Somerset 

With him at foe presenta- 
tion was Mr Robert 
Ackerman, a manager of foe 
company that has just made 
him redundant. The agricul- 
tural engineers T. EL White, of 
Devizes, have told him they 
cannot afford to keep him on 
after his four-year apprentice- 
ship ends west month. 

Mr Pollard, who is now 
seeking work elsewhere, won 
the award for his work at 
I-arfcham College of Agricul- 
ture, near Chippenham, Wilt- 
shire, where his company paid 
for him to attend Mock release 
courses over foe past four 
years. 

Mr David Scott,the 
company's "w—pe director, 
said there was no room for Mr 
Pollard ia Devizes, but he had 
been offered a job at the 
company's workshop m Mart 
borough. He said: “We cant 
absorb another mechanic here 

and Adrian didn't want to 
move to Marlborough.”

£300,000 for 
promotion 
of heritage 

By John Young 

The Historic Buildings and 
Monuments Commission for 
England, otherwise known as 
English Heritage, yesterday 
announced its biggest commer- 
cial sponsorship. 

Gateway Foodmarkets, part 
of foe Dee Corporation, is to 
provide £300,000 over three 
years to finance a number of 
promotions and fecial events. 
They include souvenir grades 
for Rievaulx Abbey and Roch- 
ester Castle, the staging of 
mediaeval battles at Prudhoe 
Castle in Northumberland, 
music and dancing at Kenil- 
worth Castle, Warwickshire, 
and a Friends of the Isle of 
Wight scheme to help support 
Osborne House and 
Carisbrooke Castle. 

Lord Montagu of Beaulieu, 
foe commission's chairman, 
said foe deal was by far the 
largest sponsorship arrange- 
ment concluded since it was 
established two years ago. He 
hoped that it would point to 
much wider involvement of 
private industry.

Warship design controversy 

Thatcher call for an inquiry 


Continued Grom page 1 
Defence, Professor R V Jones, 
a former Scientific Adviser to 
several government depart- 
ments, including the Ministry 
of Defence; and Dr Richard L 
Garwin, a leading American 
scientist with much experi- 
; ence in naval warfare. 

The committee concluded 
that for ships of “up to 
destroyer size, the short-fat 
hull form offers enough ad- 
vantages in the important 
elements of construction time, 
habitability, between-deck 
and weather-deck lay-out, sta- 
bility and sea-keeping, and 
weapon-siting to merit much 
more serious consideration 
than it has so far been 
afforded. 

“We find that foe short-fat 
bull form may offer a signifi- 
cant increase in top speed over 
foe maiimum which can be 
realized in a long-thin hull of 
similar size. If this is con- 
firmed it is a most important 
military advantage.” 

The construction cost of a

SHORT FAT 


Type 23 frigate is about 
£100 million, but the Danish 
shipyard, Frederiksbavn 
Vaerft, has estimated that a 
comparable ship built to a 
short-fat design would cost 
about £73 million. 

The committee recom- 
mended that there should be 
an inquiry conducted by a 
judge or a Queen's Council, 
inn foe Government decided 
that it should be carried out by 
“a professional expert of rec- 
ognized impartiality”, though 
who this will be is not yet 
known. 

The Government's decision 
to hold the official inquiry is a 
triumph for foe Isle of Wight- 
based firm of Thornycroft 
Giles, and in particular for Mr 
David Giles, who has cam- 
paigned for years to get the 
concept of the short-fat ship 
accepted, and who submitted 
the radical design for the Type 
23 which was rejected.. 

Mr Giles said yesterday that 
given the strict impartiality of 
the inquiry recommended by

Lord HiH-Norton, they would 
furnish all the technical and 
other evidence necessary. 
“However, given a favourable 
outcome for our proposals, 1 
which we confidently expect, 
we hope these will be an early 
opportunity for a British ship- 
yard to pfxt our ideas to foe 
ultimate test by building a full- 
scale ship.” 

Lord HiH-Norton also sup- 
ported the idea of building a 
full-size frigate to the 
Thornycroft Giles design. 

Lord HiU-Norton, introduc- 
ing his report, said that foe 
issue was of great importance 
because with foe defence bud- 
get under pressure it was vital 
that foe Royal Navy should 
obtain the best possible value 
formonqr. 

He did not seek to appor- 
tion blame for foe incorrect 
advice which foe Royal Navy 
had received, but the Navy 
“must be given bloody good 
ships, and if vested interests 
get a bloody nose in foe 
process, then so be it”.

That came after themquiry- 

by Mr David Calcutt. QC, into

by Armed Services police 
against the accused 
servicemen. 

The RAF Board has now 
told the three men still in foe 
service that regardless of mat- 
ters raised during their trial 
“there remain aspects of your 
conduct in relation to your 
period of service in Cyprus . » 
which are not compatible with 
continued service in foe- 
RAF" 

The’ Ministry of Defence- 
yesterday declined to specify 
foe allegations. 

The three men. Senior . 
Aircraftsman Gwynfor Owen, 
aged 23, SAC Geoffrey Jones, 
aged 20, and SAC Wayne 
Kriehn, aged 22, who have 
been given certificate notify- 
ing consideration of discharge,', 
have been given a week to 
appeal They are all believed 
to be asking for foe allegations 
to be fully specified. 

Four of the other men in the 
case left foe service after * 
deciding not to ask for their 
engagements to be extended, 
and another left at his own 
request on April 1. 

Seven of foe eight were 
acquitted last October on

brought against the eighth. 

It was Britain's largest, 
lengthiest and most costly spy 
trial and involved an alleged

cluded that there were breach-

men were held 

The three who are to be £ 
dismissed the service are 
based at RAF West Drayton, 
west London, where they re- 
ceived a summons last week 
to ‘ attend the Ministry of 
Defence. 

SAC Owen, from Colwyn 
Bay, north Wales, said yester- 
day: “My conduct in Cyprus 
was exemplary. The only' 
charge p ro f fered against me 
there was that I once lost my- 
identity card. The allegation 
of conduct incompatible with 
continued service is slander- 
ous. It is equivalent to a 
dishonourable discharge.”

cannot give foe reasons, but

Pub drinkers in South 
‘paying too much 9 


3 FINAL INTERNATIONAL AUCTIONS 

OF THE UTMOST IMPORTANCE AND URGENCY 


By Cliff Feltham 


Issued by foe Department for National Savings on behalf of HM Treasury. 


Customers in foe Sooth of 
England are paying too much 
for their pint of beer, a leading 
regional brewer said 
yesterday. 

Mr David Thompson, man- 
aging director of Wolverhamp- 
ton and Dudley Breweries, 
said: “I would not pay £1 a 
pint, which is what people are 
expected to pay in pubs in the 
Sooth, It is just not good value 
for money.” 

The group sells a pint of 
mild for 61p and strong bitter 
for66p. 

Mr Thompson said: “In the 
South people seem to have 
stopped going to pubs. Beer 
should be good value and pub 
going should be a normal 
happy social activity. 

“For £5 in one of our pubs 
yon can have six pints c i beer, 
a packet offags and a go on foe 
fruit machine.” 

Wolverhampton and Dudley 
claims to have increased beer 
sales at a time whoa national 


consumption is failing. Yester- 
day it reported a 20 per cent 
rise in profits for the first half 
of this year. 

Last night the Brewers Soci- 
ety said: “We cannot comment 
on Mr Thompson’s remarks. 
Pricing is a matter for ioditid- 
nal brewers bat we are aware 
there are regional variations. 
It all depends on costs." 

A spokesman for Coinage 
said: “The retail price of a pint 
is determined by the mdbhinal 
tenant or the free house licens- 
ee and the prices they charge 
reflect foe cost of running the 
business and the facilities drey 
provide. For instance, in foe 
South they will have to pay 
higher salaries, and property 
costs are also higher.” 

Mr Thompson disagrees. “I 
think foe b re wers take « mnch 
more relaxed view of their 
gross margins in the South 
where they cannot always get 
round foe pubs to exercise 
proper control the way we are 
able to in the Midlands.”

Call for freeze on pay 
award to be scrapped 

By Nicholas Timmins, Social Services Correspondent 



The Royal 
ing called on the 
yesterday to reconsider 
decision to impose a three- 
month pay freeze far 500,000 
nurses and mid wives and 
urged it to fund their 7 Jt per 
cent pay award in fhlL 

In a letter to the nine 
Minister, -Mr Trevor Gay, 
general secretary of the col- 
lege, said: “I cannot over- 
emphasize how bitterly the 
stajpngfrom July lis resented 
throughout the nursing 
profession.” 

The decision to delay the 
award from April 1 has re- 
duced its value this year to 5.9 
per cent, and together with the 
phasing of last year's award . 
means that “a ward sister at 
the top of her scale has thus 
lost over £800 in two years, the 
equivalent of (me whole year’s 
increase,*’ Mr Gay said. 

Noses who retired before 
July 1 would find their pension 
based on last year’s pay rates, 
“scant reward for a lifetime of 
dedicated service*’.

Palace fire 
victim was 
forgetful 

Lady Gale, who died in the 
Hampton- Court Palace fire 
last -March, was frail and 
forgetful and it was possible 
that a match or candle flame 
could have started a^fire. near 
her bed. the Royal Coroner 
was told yesterday. . 

The Coroner of the Queen's 
Household, Lieutenant-Colo- 
nel George McEwan, said that 
Lady Gate, aged 76, had died 
from carbon monoxide 
poisoning. 

The inquest heard that the 
fire, which gutted the private 
apartments at Hampton Court 
in foe early hours of March 31, 
probably started in Lady 
Gale's bedroom. 

On the night of the fire two 
officers at Hampton Court 
went to Lady Gale’s apart- 
ment after an intruder device 
had been set oft When they 
opened the door to her apart- 
ment they were forced back by 
flames and raised the alartn. 

Miss Maria Nunes, a Span- 
ish au pair who was a close 
companion of foe widow, said 
that she was “frail and 
forgetful" 

Miss Minnagb said it was 
posable that a cigarette or the 
naked flame from a match or a 
candle may have ignited pa- 
pers next to Lady Gale's bed. 

Lady Gale and her late 
Husband, General Sir Richard 
Gale, had lived at Hampton 
Court since 1970.

Tracey to end TV 
sport-tobacco link 

By Sheila Gnu, Political Staff 
Legislation to ban the tele- 


vising of tobacco-sponsored' 
sports events is likely unless 
broadcasters bring m their 
own controls. • - 

Mr Richard Tracey, Minis- 
ter for Sport,is detenmnedtp 
stop coverage of events where 
cigarette advertisements are 
prominently displayed - 

He has the backing of the 
Sports Council and the British 
Medical Association, which 
both want tobacco company 
sponsorship of sport phased 
out because of concern that it 
jinks healthy activities with 
smoking. 

The voluntary agreement 
between foe Government and 
the tobacco companies ran out 
at the end of! 985. Mr Tracey 
is starting talks on new guide- 
lines with the Tobacco Advi- 
sory Council next month. - 

Previously, be has said that 
he preferred a voluntary agree- 
ment to legislation. In Febru- 
ary, he did not support a 
backbench Bill to phase out 
sprats sponsorship % tobacco 
companies over three years, 
which was “talked out” of the 
Commons. But be is now 


.known to be prepared (o.back 
such a move if necessary. 

An opinion poll showed 
that most children believed 
cigarettes here still advertised 
on television. Mr Tracey has 
.expressed his concern in the 
'Commons that many people 
saw the showing of tobacco- 
sponsored snooker contests: 
and other spans as a way 
through the advertising ban. 

An Independent' Broadcast- 
ing Authority spokesman said 
that by coincidence the ITV 
companies had been showing 
less tobacco-sponsored sport 
recently but it would have to 
study the implications of 
tighter controls. 

A BBC spokesman said foe 
situation had not changed 
since Mr Bill Cotton, manag- 
ing director of BBC Televi- 
sion, called- for a complete 
reassessment of foe issue in a 
letter to The Times last 
month. 

Mr Cotton emphasized the 
problems of providing first- 
class coverage of sporting 
events while being required to 
sit in judgement on possible 
infringements of the 
agreement 


Government cash plea 
by Games organizers 


By a Staff Reporter 


Organizers of the 13th Com- 
monwealth Games, which 
open in Edinburgh in two 
months’ time, have asked foe 
Government to underwrite a 
possible £1.5 million shortfall 
in their budget 

The Games are the first to 
be funded by private enter- 
prise but because of uncertain- 
ties over bow many Com- 
monwealth athletes, will 
compete, the organizers fear 
the £14 million budget may 
not cover foe costs. 

Mr Kenneth. Borfowick, 
chairman of the Games, Iras 
written to Mr Malcolm 
Rifldnd, Secretary of State for 
Scotland, asking for a change 
of government policy towards 
the Games. 

He refused to give derails 
but it is understood that foe 
letter pointed but the prestige 
and benefits to Scotland of 
bolding the competition in 
Edinburgh and foe difficulty 
of finding funds from private 
sources . in the present eco- 
nomic ctimate. 

Mr Maurice Griffiths, direc- 
tor of the fund-raising consor- 


tium, said yesterday that its 
members expected to reach 
their own target of £8.5 mil- 
lion to £9 million. “If there is 
a shortfall then clearly the 
organizers need to know 
where foe money is coming 
from, and who is prepared to 
underwrite it ; 

“More particularly, if they 
do produce 3,200 athletes 
instead of 2,750 then huge 
smrn will be involved for a 
second village, a second secu- 
rity system and extra tran- 
sport.” 

Mr Griffiths said that foe 
consortium had already raised 
£6.5 million. 

It is understood foe letter to 
Mr Rifitind is the first formal 
app ro ac h to the Government 
for help, although the Games 
organizers have regularly un- 
officially raised the possibility 
of funding with ministers only 

to be rejected. 

The organizers said that 
there would be no question of 
cancelling foe Games or of foe 
limited company set up to 
raise foe money going bank- 
rupt.

Head teachers 9 conference 


£ 100m demand to 
cut GCSE ‘risk’ 

By Lucy Hodges, Education Correspondent 


Governors get say 
on suspensions 

By Oar Education Correspondent 


Head teachers yesterday de- 
manded more money and staff 
if the Government insisted on 
going ahead with introducing 
foe new General Certificate of 
Secondary Education exami- 
nation in September. 

.A motion, carried over- 
whelmingly at the National 
Association of Head Teachers 
conference in Cardiff; said the 
success of many pupils taking 
the new examination in 1988 
would be at risk. 

“If the Government is de- 
termined to implement this 
reform regardless of our ad- 
vice then the only responsible 
course open to tire new Secre- 
tary of State is to provide 
without delay such resources 
as the profession deems neces- 
sary to ensure foal this risk is 
reduced to an absolute 
minim um,” the resolution 
■said. 

The association is demand- 
ing £100 million for the- new 
examinati on; the Government 
has .given between £20 million 

and £30 million. 

^ : 
The motion before foe con- 
ference was substantially 
changed under pressure from 
the association's executive. 
The resolution had previously 
called on Mr Kenneth Baker, 


the new Secretary of State for 
Education and Science, to 
revise foe time scale for foe 
new examination, but that was 
clearly regarded as unrealistic. 

Mr Graham Leech, bead of 
Range High School in Sefton, 
Merseyside, said: “If foe Gov- 
ernment is determined to 
implement this reform then 
foe only responsible course is 
to provide without delay such 
resources as we need.” 

The co-operation and good- 
will of teachers would only be 
forthcoming if extra money 
was available, he emphasized 

“My message to the Gov- 
ernment is dear. *Give us the 
resources and we will do our 
very best to make GCSE work. 
Fail to do so and the conse- 
quences could be disastrous, 
not only for our pupils but for 
you also' ” 

• Mr Baker said later that 
GCSE exam courses will begin 
this year as planned (foe Press 
Association reports). 

“Any delay would he 
unrealistic,” he said during a 
visit to two schools in Bolton. 

“Resources have been made 
available and it is inevitable 
that we must stick to our 
plans.” 


Governors are to have a say 
in the suspension of pupils. 
Government ministers have 
made foe concession to head 
teachers on the clause in foe 
Education Bill, it was dis- 
closed yesterday. 

Although ministers are per- 
sisting in giving local educa- 
tion authorities the final 
power to reinstate a pupil in a 
school which has suspended 
him, they have conceded that 
before such a reinstatement 
foe school governors should 
be consulted 

Mr David Hart, general 
secretary of foe National As- 
sociation of Head Teachers, 
said yesterday that foe pro- 
posed amendment was quite 
inadequate. “I have written 
back to say that this is not 
nearly good enough,” be said 

The association is asking for 
an independent panel to be set 
up in every local education 
authority to resolve difficult 
cases of suspension and has 
drafted an amendment © foe 
Bill to that effect 

It hopes that would avoid 
disasters such as the Pounds- 
wkk High School dispute in- 
Manchester where five boys, 
suspended for daubing graffiti 
abusive to teachers on school 
walls, were reinstated by foe 
local council. 


The school day should be 
shortened because parents 
preferred It and children's 
performance improved, head 
teachers said yesterday. 

The National Association of 
Head Teachers will set up a 
working party to look into the 
issues after pressure from its 
members. 

Sir David Ogg, head of the 
Park Primary School in 
Runcorn, told foe association^ 
annual conference that he had 
shortened his school day by op 
to 45 minutes for some chil- 
dren as a result of the 
teachers’ pay dispate and be- 
caese teachers were refusing 
to do lunchtime supervision. 

He has reduced the lunch 
break to 45 minutes for the 
juniors and 55 minutes for the 

infante. 


That led to the teachers 
being suspended for refusing 
to teach pupils and whole 
classes missing lessons. The 
dispute is still going on and 
has become a cause (Hebre w 
foe world of teacher politics. 

The association is pressing 
for other amendments to foe 
Education Bill, now before 
Parliament, on the curriculum 
and discipline generally. 


UGC demands ‘have air of unreality’ 


By Ronald Faux 


Many universities will have 
to exchange stafi^ call for early 
retirements or make new ap- 
pointments to meet the de- 
mands of the University 
Grants Committee, Sir Ken- 
neth Alexander, vice-chancel- 
lor of Stirling University, said 
yesterday. 

Responding to foe com- 
mittee's proposals, he called 
for a more effective approach 
to higher education planning. 

Stirling is one of the smaller 
universities to have been badly 
affected by the new alloca- 
tions, suffering a cat in real 
terms of about £500,000 in 
UGC funding, and a “dis- 
appointing” reduction in its 


number of British and EEC 
undergraduates. 

Sir Kenneth pointed out that 
while foe UGC might require 
such big changes. the mecha- 
nisms or finance to bring them 
about did not exist “There Is 
an air of unreality about the 
whole process,” be said. 

Stirling was clearly disap- 
pointed at the ratings achieved 
by its various departments. It 
was judged to be above average 
in only three, average in seven 
and below average in nine. In 
spite of the internationally 
recognized quality and foe 
contributions of Stiriing’s 
aqua-culture research, it had 
not been accorded a top rating. 


Sir Kenneth put that down 
to the different emphasis 
placed by the research council 
of pure and applied science. 

He said that it was the first 
attempt by the UGC and the 
research councils to develop a 
new selectivity approach. It 
was important to remember 
that the methodology used was 
in its infancy. 

The procedures fell for short 
of perfection and it was impor- 
tant, he said, to recognize that 
shortfall in funding for the 
university system as a whole 
overhung the process. Inevita- 
bly distorting its outcome. 

Sir Kenneth said that the 


problems of introducing new 
universities to the system had 
never been thought through 
properly; neither had the prob- 
lems of altering the size and 
shape of the system. 

The result was some waste- 
ful and painful “ad-boccery”. 

Stirling, for example, oper- 
ated on a different system. 
There were two semesters and 
a degree of flexibility in choice 
that did not fit very easily into 
the kind of planning in which 
the UGC had been engaged. 
Sir Kenneth said: “That is not 
their fault and it is not our 
fault but it reveals a lack of 
sensitivity in the system.” 


Bomb trial 
defendant 
‘helped 
escapers’ 

By Stewart Tendler 
Crime Reporter 
A woman accused of con- 
spiring in an IRA campaign to 
bomb British resorts last year 
told a jury yesterday that she; 
was a supporter of the Repub- 
lican cause, but she was not a 
member of the Provisional 
IRA. 

Miss Martina Anderson 
told the Central Criminal 
Court that she came from 
Ireland last year to help Irish' 
prisoners on the run, but she 
knew nothing of any borabt 
plot 

Miss Anderson, aged 23, of 
Brin crane, Co Donegal, is 
charged with another woman; 
and three men, including Pat- 
rick Magee, who has pleaded 
not guilty to placing the bomb 
at the Grand HoteC Brighton,' 
with conspiracy to cause ex-, 
plosions last year between 
January and June. All five 
defendants have pleaded not; 
guilty. 

Yesterday, Miss Anderson/ 
described how she was arrest- 
ed at a Glasgow flat with the 
other four defendants. She: 
said that she first met Mr 
Magee and Mr Peter Sherry* 
another defendant, at foe fla^ 
two hours before a police raid. 

She had come from Ireland 
a week earlier after being 
asked by a woman called, 
Maggie to help Irish prisoners. 

During cross-examination 
by Mr Roy Amlot, for the 
prosecution, she explained 
how fingerprints could have 
got on to a piece of cigarette 
paper containing details of an 
alleged bombing calendar 
found on Mr Magee, and a 
diagram found with a bomb 
cache. 

Miss Anderson said that she 
sometimes smoked home- 
made cigarettes, and she 
might have left her print on 
paper as a packet of cigarette 
papers was passed to someone 
else. The diagram might have 
been on top of a tool box in a 
Glasgow flat she had visited. , 
She told the court that sho 
did not know what she would, 
have done if she had discov- 
ered a bomb campaign was 
being planned. 

Mr Amlot asked: “You are,' 
of course. Republican?” Miss 
Anderson said she was. He' 
added: “Were you at that time. 
a member of the Provisional. 
IRA?” Miss Anderson said: “I 
was not” 

. She agreed that she had raid. 
she was honoured to be help-; 
ing ; v Republican prisoners.- 
Asketg by Mr Justice Borehanf 
if .she would be prepared to- 
help escaped IRA prisoners; 
she said she would. 

Under cross-examination 
she agreed that when arrested 
in Glasgow last year she was 
wanted by the police in Norths 
era Ireland. 

Miss Anderson denied pos : 
sessing a Browning handgun, 
found in her handbag by; 
police. She told the court that 
she had only learnt of the gun 
during evidence at a 
magistrates' court appearance, 
some time after her arrest. 

Miss Anderson said that she- 
had gone to Glasgow before 
going to London with two 
other defendants to meet a 
man on the ran who was to be 
escorted to safety in 
Copenhagen. * 

She told the court that she 
was not prepared to identify 
the woman called Maggie. 
Later Miss EJla O'Dwyer, aged! 
27, from the Irish Republic, 
told foe court that she loo had 
been recruited to help prison- 
ers. She denied being a mem- 
ber of foe Provisional IRA or 
to having any knowledge of a 
bomb plot. 

The trial continues today. 


Firms give 
Britain a 
bad name 

By Robin Young 

British firms which sell 
faulty goods, break delivery 
dates, mid provide no reliable 
after-rales service are to blame 
for demoting Britain to the 
bottom of the international 
economic league table, the 
chairman of the National 
Consumer Council daimed 
yesterday. 

In a lecture at Oxford 
Polytechnic, Mr Michael 
Montague, an industrialist 
and chairman of the Valor 
company, suggested that In- 
dustry Year should he retitled 
foe Year of the Consumer. 

“There cannot be a consum- 
er in foe land who has not 
waited in vain for a new three- 
piece suite to arrive, or a 
plumber to put in an appear- 
ance, or the telephone man to 
deal with a fault. It defeats me 
how companies can put such 
high value on their own time 
and so little value on foe time 
of the consumer.” 

Some British Sims, Mr 
Montague claimed, have bet- 
ter organized service arrange- 
ments overseas than they do at 
home. “They should stop 
seeing foe UK as their own 
backyard and provide proper 
backup services here,” he said, 
citing the British motor cycle 
and typewriter industries as 
examples that had been driven 
out of existence by foe loss of 
consumer support 


Electricity 
price cut 
‘too small’ 


Energy C 


Electricity price reductions 
of three per cent due to be 
announced in foe wake of 
lower contract prices for coal 
delivered to power stations are 
too small, the London Elec- 
tricity Consultative Council 
rays. 

The price cuts would still 
leave customers of foe Lon- 
don Electricity Board paying 
more for their power than is 
justified by the state of foe 
beard's finances. 

Mr Christopher Bourne, 
chairman of the consultative 
council, said yesterday: “The 
i-F-B has a history of over- 
charging customers, relative 
to foe costs of running foe 
business. During foe first five 
years in foe 1980s, it contin- 
ually overshot all its target 
profit levels and received rates 
of return on capital much 
higher than those consistent 
with economic pricing. 

“All the surpluses have been 
extracted from the LEB — 
which means from London 
customers' pockets — by an 
ever-receptive Treasury, with 
few, if any, benefits of conse- 
quence to Londoners. 

“While welcoming the pros- 
pect of a general price cut for 
all UK customers, including 
Londoners, we are sure that 
LEB can and should reduce its 
charges by a i least 4 per cent 
and freeze them for 18 
months.”

decline in the other largest 
cities of Fn gjan fl and Wales 
has also been reduced, accord-

the Office of Population Cen-

Sir mid- 1985 show that be- 
tween 1984 and 1985 there 
were small increases in popu- 
lation for both Inner and 
Outer London. 

. :The population of Outer 
London, at 4,225,500, was 
bach to the level of 1981, a 
natural increase of 34,900 due 
to the excess of births over 
deaths being precisely bal- 
anced by population loss due 
to migration and other 
changes. In Inner London the 
population was still 38,000 
fewer than in 1981, bat 3^200 
more than in 1984. 

. In the metropolitan districts 
of the largest cities the popula- 


tion fell by 0.5 per cent per 
year between 1981 and 1985, 
but that compared with a rate 
of decline which was 0.8 per 
cent in the late 1970s. 

Population losses continued 
in the metropolitan counties 
of England, though generally 
at a lower rate than during the 
late 1970s and early 198%. 

■Merseyside was the metro- 


politan county with the largest 
fell of population, nearly 3 per 


By Robin Yoang 
cent down since 1981. Within 
Merseyside the districts of 
Liverpool and Knowsley both 
experienced losses of more 
than 4 per cent 

No other metropolitan dis- 
tricts showed such large losses, 
but Solihull in the West 
Midlands was the only one to 
register any real growth since 
1981. 

In the non-metropolitan 
counties the annual rate of 
growth has been increasing 
since 1981, but the average 
rate for the period has re- 
mained lower than it was in 
the late 1970s. 

The non-metropolitan 
counties with the greatest 
proportionate increases were 
all in the south of England. ' 
Buckinghamshire, Dorset and 
Cambridgeshire all achieved 
increases around 5 per cent 
between 1981 and 1985, while 
Berkshire, Oxfordshire, Corn- 
wall, the Isle of Wight and 
Somerset all grew by 4 per 
cent. 

At district level the largest 
increases were registered by 
Milton Keynes (22 per cent) 
and Wokingham ( 1 6 per cent), 
while retirement areas close to 
the south coast also showed 
marked increases, examples 
being Wim borne, Dorset, up 
10 per cent, and Christchurch 
up 7 per cent. Port and 
retirement areas generally in- 



creased their rates of growth 
during the 1980s. 

Counties which lost popula- 
tion over the 1981 to 1985 
period included Cleveland, 
Durham and West Olamoigan 
{each down by about 2 per 
cent), and Humberside and 
Mid Glamorgan which yield- 
ed about 1 percent each. 

The districts contributing 
most to those declines were 
industrial cities such as Mid- 
dlesbrough and Kingston- 
upon-HulL 

Nationally the OFCS esti- 
mate is that the population of 
England increased by 155,000 
(3 per cent) between 1984 and 
1985, while Wales 1 population 
increased by only 5,000 (0.2 
percent). 

The estimates are derived 
from the 1981 census figures 
updated to allow for subse- 
quent births, deaths and mi- 
gration. A detailed account of 
recent population changes, 
and how they compare with 
those during the 1971 to 1981 
decade, is to appear in the

Suttoa Place, one of the 
most important Todor houses 
in England and the former 
home of the world's richest 
man J. Paid Getty, is to be 
sold for more than £8 million. 

One of the earliest English 
manor houses constructed 
purely for dwelling purposes 
without defence previous, 
Sutton Place was bought by 
Mr Stanley Seegar, a m3fioo- 
ahe from Wisconsin, in 1980 


for £8 millin g. 

He is estimated to hare 
spent a further £5 million to 
£10 millioa restoring the 
house and pnW<f ( jcwfadwitg 
the construction of the largest 
domestic lake in Europe for 
two centuries. 

The decision to sell follows 
the Sutton Place Heritage 
Trust’s surrender of its lease 
of the house and central parts 
of the estate. 


Mr Anthony Cane, of Strutt 
Parker, tbe estate agents, said: 
“It is just like selling a house 
with a sitting tenant. ” 

The trust, which promotes 
the arts at Sutton Place, is 
being forced to give up its lease 
because it cannot obtain fund- 
ing on n permanent basis. 

A spokesman for the trust, 
set np in 1980* said the main 
patron was Mr Seegar. The 
trust had been founded direct- 


ly or indirectly through him. It 
bow appeared, she said, that 
he had decided to withdraw Ms

The house, built between 
1521 and 1526 by Sir Richard 
Weston, a favourite courtier of 
Henry Vffl, stands in an 
unspoiled setting near Guild-

US protests over Berlin crossing 




wiiiii 


• «■ '*< 


From Frank Johnson 

Bonn 

Mr Richard Bun, the US 
Ambassador to Wen Germa- 
ny, yesterdty ‘‘energetically 
protested? to the Soviet Am- 
bassador to East Germany, Mr 
Vyacheslav Kochemassov 
over the BerKn passport aflair. 
US officials said. 

But as the two ambassadors 
were talking over lunch in 
East Berlin, there were signs in 
Bonn that West Germany was 
not as angry about the amir as 
the United States believes it 
should be. 

. It looked as if the Soviet 
Urudn and East Germany 
might have succeeded in creat- 
ing a small rift in die Western 
alliance by their apparently 
innocuous demand that from 
now on diplomats must show 
their passports when crossing 
from East into West Beilin 
and hot just the red identity 
cards issued by the East 
German Foreign Ministry. 

The United States, Britain, 
France — and theoretically 
West Germany — oppose the 
change because they say that 
having to present passports 
implies a Western acceptance 
of East Germany's claim that 
Berlin is its capital 

The West says it is still a city 
occupied by the four victori- 
ous powers in the Second 
World War, and that the 
eastern half is merely the 
Soviet occupation sector. To 
suggest otherwise, in the West- 
ern view, would be to ride 
strengthening the co mmunis t 
daim to the whole of the city. 

But Herr Wolfgang Sch&ub- 
le, the Minister at the Chancel- 
lor's Office in Bonn, said in a

mament plan pin forward 
earlier this year by Mr Mikhail 
Gorbachov, the Soviet leader. 

Among other things the 
Kremlin plan calls for the 
abolition of unclear weapons 
by the year 2000. 

■ “If these are real proposals 


From John Best, Ottawa 

they should be discussed at 
Geneva,” Lord Carrington 
said. 

Hie praised the US decision 
to continue complying with 
the Salt 2 treaty for scrapping 
two elderly missile-carrying 
submarines when a new Tri- 
dent-class submarine goes into 
operation soonJHe called this 
a rhalh-ng e to the Soviet 
Union to do something by the 
end of the year about ns own 
non-comphance. 

Lord Carrington said that 
people in the West, who were 
concentrating on Mr Gor- 
bachov's “nebulous prop- 
osals”, had tended to overlook 
the extremely forward-looking 
proposals .advanced by the 
US. 

These included reducing su- 


perpower strategic nuclear 
forces fry 50 per cent, and 
abolishing tan^r-range medi- 
um weapons. 

On the controversial issue 
of chemical weapons, he noted 
that Nato defence ministers 
last week in Brussels adopted 
American strength goals 
which incorporate updating 
US stockpiles. 

“Adopt means adopt,” he 
said tersely, adding that that 
should be the end of the 
matter. 

It may not be, however. 
There is a move afoot in the 
US Congress to Mode appro- 
priations for the new chemical 
weapons unless the Nato for- 
eign ministers, at this Halifax 
meeting, endorse the action 
taken last weelrby the defence 
ministers.

Russians say Sakharov 
return from exile 
jeopardized by his wife 


Wreaths and scarves honour Heysel dead Women in 

court to 


From Christopher Walker 
Moscow 

The Kremlin has wanted to 
allow. Dr Andrei Sakharov, the 
exiled physicist, to . return - 
from Gorky to Moscow, but 
the move had been jeopar- 
dized by the behaviour of his 
wife, Mis Yelena Bonner, 
during her stay in the West, 
according to Mr Viktor Louis, 
the Soviet journalist. 

Mr Louis, frequently used 
in the past as a conduit of 
official information about Dr 
Sakharov, said in anticipation 
of Mis Bonner’s return here 
on Monday: “It makes sense 
for him (to come back to 
Moscow). She is the obstacle. 
It i$. not his behaviour; it is 
hers. He wants a quiet life, but 
she would start calling press 
conferences." 

Although Dr Sakharov's 
continuing exile is known to 
be an embarrassment to the 
campaign by the Soviet leader, 
Mr Mikhail Gorbachov, to 
improve the image of the 
Soviet Union in Western Eu- 
rope, the claims by Mr Louis 
are being treated with caution 
in diplomatic circles. It has 
been a well-known KGB- 
inspired tactic in the past to 
put the blame for Dr 
Sakharov’s treatment on the 
behaviour of his Jewish wife. 

Mr Louis, previously the 
source for films of Dr Sakha- 



Boris Gaiko, file former Soviet 
chess champion, on his arrival 
hi Vienna yesterday after sev- 
en years of trying, to emigrate 
to Israel. With -his wife and 
then- son DavitLseven, he hopes 
to fly to Israel on Sunday. 

rov and his wife shot secretly 
in Gorky by the KGB, alleged 
that Mrs Bonner had behaved 
with profanity during her six 
months in the West, but 
denied her claim that she had 
been forced-to give a pledge 
not to speak to the Western 
media. 

“How many politicians has 
she seen, and how many 
doctors? She has turned her- 
self into a politically outspo- 
ken figure, helping forces 
hostile to the Soviet Union,** 
the Soviet journalist claimed. 
He contrasted her behaviour 


with that of Dr Sakharov, 
who. he said, had demonstrat- 
ed during his exfle that be was 
still a loyal citizen. 

It is expected that on her 
return Mrs Bonner, aged 62, 
win resume her life of exile io 
Gorky, a city out of bounds to 
all foreigners where the 
Sakharovs live under round- 
the-clock KGB surveillance. 

• Sick woman: Dr Allan 
Wynn, chairman of the Sakha- 
rov. committee and Mn 
Bonner’s host while she is in 
London, described Mr Louis’s 
chum -as “a most brutal and 
damaging report, inspired by 
the KGB and designed to 
intimidate a sick woman who 
is trying to help her husband" 
(Our Diplomatic Correspon-' 
dent, writes). 

Dr Wynn said that Mrs 
Bonner had held no press 
conferences during her stay in 
the West, nor had she made 
any statements that were dam- 
aging to file Soviet Union. 
“This is a typical piece of 
KGB bullying," he said. 

Mrs Bonner, who arrived in 
London on Wednesday, is to 
have talks with Mrs Thatcher 
this morning before flying to. 
Rome on tire final leg of her 
journey back to Moscow. 

The Prime Minister is ex- 
pected to assure her that 
Britain will continue to press 
for Dr Sakharov’s release. 



Britain was not represented at a 
short ceremony outside the Heysel 
Stadium in Brussels yesterday, 
when Italian mourners laid 
wreaths to mark the first anniver- 
sary of the violence by Liverpool 


football supporters which left '39 
dead at last year's European Cop 
FinaL 

The only Liverpool supporter 
present was a German, Herr 
Thomas Niederberger, who wore 


the dab's red T-shirt. He was 
applauded when he laid three 
scarves with the wreaths — red for 
Liverpool, black, yellow, and red 
for Germany, and orange, white, 
and green for Italy. 


EEC hoists its flag Island poll landslide 


From Richard Owen, Brussels 


The new EEC flag — a circle 
of 12 gold stars on a dark-blue 
ground — was hoisted along- 
side tit e national flags ofibe 12 
member states outside the 
Commission's Brussels head- 
quarters yesterday. - 
The flag, based on the 
present Council of Europe 


flag, sets the seal on the 
enlarged EEC after the entry of 
Spain and Portugal this year. 

The choir of the European 
Communities sang Beet- 
hoven's Ode to Joy, with :

US dollars steady 
Israeli economy 

From Ian Murray, Jerusalem 


Israel had a surplus of $1.1 
billion on its current account 
at the end of last year, which is 
expected to have a long-term 
stabilizing effect on the econo- 
my, according to the annual 
report of the Bank of Israel 
Although the national aus- 
terity plan introduced in July 
has been a vital factor in this 
recovery, the report shows 
that it has really been possible 
only because of substantial 
American aid. 

Mr Moshe Mendelbaum, 
the Governor of the Bank, is 
to present the report officially 
next week. It will be his last 
duty before he is forced to 
resign after an L inquiry into 
share dealings which brought . 
about a collapse of bask 
shares in 1983. ’J 
Although leaving under -ar 
cloud, he can takfecomfortjn 
the fact that he is fofcadiqg over 
at a time whehthoc£x>nomy is 


looking more heahhy than fin- 
some considerable time. 

But only $5.1 billion in aid 
from the United States made 
it possible to cover the $4. 
billion excess of imports over 
exports on goods and services. 
The bulk of this import bill 
was for interest repayments tut 
existing debts and for buying 
military equipment 

Apart from these items, the 
excess of imports over exports 
was just $264- million, a mere 
10 per cent of that in J 983. 

Last year Israel also benefit- 
ed from $ 1.5 billion American 
emergency aid, granted only 
after the Government agreed 
to an extfemely austere eco- 
nomic plan. The report , is the 
first public indication that 
American pressure ; farced. Is- 
rael to take these measures. ' - 
: The report also ahows that, 
for the first time since 1973, 
Israel’s foreign debt dropped..;

Jerusalem — The chief of 
Israel's anti-toTorist police, 
Mr Avraham Shalom, is fee- 
ing an awkward choice: resign

Bullets end Armenian 


neutrality in Beirut a s 


From Robert Fisk, Beirat 


fortune tn 


In east Beirut, the houses of 
Camp Marash are hnnehed 
against each other, die upper, 
wooden stories leaning out 
over the narrow, claustropho- 
bic laneways like a medieval. 
English street 

The style is Balkan rattier 
than Lebanese, the shop 
names written in Armenian 
rather than Arabic Through 
the low windows, yon can catch 
right of pflin ringc of Mount 
Ararat, of golden swords and 
red flags- Bat it was not 
difficult yesterday to tell that 
something was wrong. 

Many of the shops were 
shut, and in the offices of 
Tashnag, the largest of the 

Ambush deaths 

Jerusalem — Five members 
of the South Lebanon Army 
militia were killed yesterday 
morning when their vehicle 
was ambushed about eight 
miles north of the zone along 
the border with Israel which 
the group controls with sub- 
stantial Israeli help. 

three Armenian parties and 
nufitias in Beirut, a bearded,, 
bespectacled man was speak- 
ing os the telephone about the 
latest tragedy to befell th e 

descendants of the survivors of 
the 1915 Armenian massacre. 

A clutch of Arm en i a n spiri- 
tual leaders had just been 
dispatched to west Beirut , to 
talk to the Muslim sheikhs 
and religious leaders who 
exercise influence over their 
fervent if chaotic f lock in foe 
other sector of the city. 

Five Armenians— including 
a dentist, a tailor- and the 
owner of a photographic shop 


— bad been murdered in west 
Beirut m only ?2 boars. In die 
past week six others have been 
wounded in assassination at- 
tempts, and five have been 
robbed. 

In the streets around Hara- 
re, the Armenians have been 
raking downtbeir names from 
shops and apartments — al- 
most every Armenian name 
In the teBtale “-ian" — 
and many of the 2300 Arme- 
nians stifl firing in the west of 
the Lebanese c api tal Irate 


been talking of moving to the 
east 

There are 200,000 Anne 
mans in east Beirut, in Tripoli 
and in the Bekaa town of 
Anjar, all of them grandchil- 
dren or great-grand -children 
of those who fled the 1915 
pogrom in Turkey in which 
more than a motion died. 

They fed the pain of the 
west Beirut killings not just 
because of- their history of 
suffering but beca u se — at 
least until now — their commu- 
nity has been the only one to 
tire peacefully amid both 
Muslims and Christians in 

Lebanon. Msny things here, it 
seems, are coming to an rod. 

“The Armenian presence in 
west Beirut is one of the 
remaining symbols of Leba- 
nese unity — we have a policy 
of .positive neutrality in the 
war here. 

“We are inter m e di a ri es. 
What can we do?" Even the 
speaker, a high official of 
Tashnag, insists that his name 
is not revealed. “We have 
always advocated fraternity 
among the Lebanese." - 

Almost all the Armenians in 

Beirut hold Lebanese pass- 
ports, their Armenian- Ortho- 1 
dor religion dissociated from 
the Maronite Christians who 
oppose Muslim forces. 

Their newspapers, tbeir 
churches and schools and 
. institutions -have turned their 
neutrality into a kind of refi- 
cion. Yet it does not seem to

Campus riots 
curbed as 
Nigeria closes 
universities 

From Our Correspondent, Lagos 


-The closure of at least IS 
Nigerian universities seemed 
yesterday to have curbed vio- 
lent nationwide protests 
-which began a week ago. 

The Inspector-General of 
Police, Mr Etim Inyang, inter- 
rupted television broadcasts 
late on Wednesday to address 
the nation on the crisis. 

Describing as unfortunate 
the deaths of students at 
Ahmadu Bello University in 
the ancient northern town of 
Zaria, he said that exaggerated 
'reports had provoked the 
students. He confirmed that 
'they had set alight govern- 
ment vehicles and police sta- 
tions. and added: H In some 
instances, private homes have 
-been burnt down while some 
■ newspaper offices have been 
vandalized.” 

As many as 10 government 
_ vehicles were reported to have 
' been set ablaze on Lagos roads 
"on Wednesday try students 
Who set up road-blocks. 

’ chanted war songs and dis- 
rupted city traffic. Massive 
(demonstrations were reported 
in other parts of the country. 

: Students at the University 
- of Ife. in lle-lfe north-east of 


Lagos, set the town prison on 
fire and freed 216 prisoners. 
According to police, only 28 
have been recaptured. 

The student crisis was 
sparked at Zaria on Friday, 
when police shot and killed 
students protesting at the ex- 
pulsion of a student union 
leader and the suspension of 
another for activities connect- 
ed with a demonstration in 
ApriL 

The union leaders were 
charged with having violated 
the rule against male entry 
into female hostels during the 
demonstration. 

The National Association of 
Nigerian Students claims that 
24 students died in the Zaria I 
fracas, but the police records 
say that only four people were 
killed. 

.As well as dosing some 
universities, the Government 
has advised parents to call 
their children home, and has 
banned all demonstrations 
and public processions. 

The Nigeria Labour Con- 
gress has called a nationwide 
workers' demonstration on 
June 4 to mourn the death of 
the students. 


Police seal 
off eight 
colleges 
in protest 

From Ahmed Fazl 
Dhaka 

Police yesterday sealed off 
Bangladesh's eight state-nut 
medical colleges after haring 
forced striking students and 
junior doctors to leave the 
campuses. The Government 
has suspended all examina- 
tions. 

Earlier, more than 100 ju- 
nior hospital doctors were 
arrested after they refused to 
end a two-month strike de- 
manding government posts. 
The authorities said that 26 of 
them had been seat to prison 
on charges of breaking 
discipline. 

. The arrests sparked a gen- 
eral strike by doctors, called 
by die HanginHach Medical 
Association, which has para- 
lyzed the 13 major hospitals. 

About 1,200 junior hospital 
doctors have been holding 
street demonstrations since 
early ApriL asking the Gov- 
ernment to provide jobs after 
their hospital training. 

Mr Manznnd Karim, the 
Health Ministry under-secre- 
tary, says that there were 
vacancies only for some 150.

Israel offers agricultural expertise to Africa SS 


From Zoriana Pysariwsky 
New York 

Israel which is seeking to 
make diplomatic inroads into 
black Africa, has offered to put 
its agricultural and technologi- 
cal expertise at Africa's dis- 
posal as the United Nations 
General Assembly continued 
its special session on the 
continent's economic crisis. 


Mr David Kimche, director 
general of the Israeli Foreign 
Ministry, said that Israel 
wished to share with African 
countries its experience in 
attaining agricultural . pro- 
ductivity under semi-arid con- 
ditions. He suggested applying 
Israeli know-how to develop- 
ing suitable technologies for 
the reduction of Africa's vul- 


nerability to drought and to 
improve’ traditional areas of 
agriculture. 

Most African nations sev- 
ered diplomatic ties with Isra^ 
el after the 1967 Arab-Israeli 
war. But Israel has taken 
advantage of the shifting pow- 
er balance in the Middle East

Fight to reform Badget 

Chirac resorts to 
guillotine again 

From Diana Geddes, Paris 


For the third time since 
coming to power just over two 
months ago. Fiance's right- 
wing Government has used 
the guillotine jprocedise to cut 
short the debate on one of its 
controversial Bills. 

This time the Bill concerns 
a series of amendments to the 
Socialists' Budget for 1986, 
including the abolition of the 
wealth tax, cuts in taxes oh 
company profits and an am- 
nesty for all those with illegal 
capital holdings abroad. 

The Socialists, who have 
accused the Government of 
flouting the sovereignly of 
Parliament, have already an- 
nounced their intention of 
countering the guillotine by 
tabling a censire motion on 
the enabling BiU to allow the 
Government to legislate by 
decree on a series ofeconotmc 
and social measures. These 
inrindft - d enationalizat ion and 
the electoral reform Bill 

But despite tbe Govern- 
ment's tiny overall majority of 
three votes in the National 
Assembly, the censure motion 
has virtually no chance of 
succeeding. 


Together the Socialists. 
Communists and non-aligned 
left-wing deputies can muster 


only 2S1 votes. 

Even if the 35 extreme-right 
National Front deputies agree 
to vote with them, which is by - 
no means certain,. they will 
stitt be tlaee votes short of the 
absolute majority of 289 need- 
ed for a censure motion to be 
adopted. 

Announcing the Govern- 
ment's derision to use the 
guillotine on the Budget re- 
form Bfll at 730 am yester- 
day, after an alKnight sitting, 
the Prime Minister, M Jac- 
ques Chirac, accused the So- 
cialists of having deliberately 
tried to obstruct the Bill with 
calls for nine separate suspen- 
sions of Parh^rpeot during the 

H^htis Bin could have been 
approved during the session,” 
M Chirac said angrily. “Noth- 
ing justified the little game of 
mtemiptions engaged in in an 
attempt to prolong indefinite- 
ly the debate on measures 
which the Government needs 
and which constitute an essen- 
tial part of its economic 
policy.” 

With the ever-present threat 
that President Mitterrand may 
decide to call early presiden- 
tial elections, tire Government 
is trying to push through 
Parliament as much of its 
electoral programme as it can 
as quickly as possible. 

It has already introduced 
BiQs to enable it to legislate by 
decree on social and economic 
measures, to ease restrictions., 
on laying off redundant work- 
ers. to bring baric majority- 
voting, and to amend the 1986 
Budget. Further Bills are bow -

Stolen letter launches 
bitter attack on 
Gandhi’s leadership 


. Bitter criticism of the style 
and methods of the Indian 
Prime Minister, Mr Rajiv 
Gandhi, made in a letter to 
him from within his own 
party, was published yester- 
day, even though the writer 
said it had been stolen and was 
not intended for publication. 

The letter blames “the rapid 
disintegration of the party at 
all levels’ 1 on “the casual, ad 
hoe and inept handling of the 
party matters by you and your 
so-called operators”. 

The letter provided a focus 
for the revolt of three senior 
figures in the Congress (I) 
Party last month, and resulted 
in their suspension from party 
membership. They have be- 
come the centre of an anti- 
party revolt. 

It was written by Mr 
Kamalapathi Tripathi, aged 
83, the so-called “working 
president” of the party, and 
one of a group of Brahmins 


FrtHP Miduri Hamlyn, ll dhi 

from Uttar Pradesb-whO have 
dominated Congress politics 
in the stale and nationally for 
at least 60 years. 

His letter accuses Mr Gan- 
dhi of being surrounded by 
sycophants who hated Mrs 
Indira Gandhi, the Prime 
Minister’s mother, and who 
were acting as ’‘power bro- 
kers” to the deep detriment of 
the party. 

The letter was released by 
Mr SJS. Mahpatra, a former 
party secretary, who, with the 
' three men dismissed from the 
party — Mr Prauab Mukb- 
eijee, Mr A.P. Sbarma and Mr 
Prafeash Mehrotra — has es* 
tabjished a monitoring group 
which will cafl a convention of 
Indira loyalists in Delhi at the 
end of June.. 

“We consider Mr TripathTs 
letter as the bible for all right- 
thinking con gre ssmen,” said 
the monitoring group releas- 
ing the letter. They are con- 


Kinnock defends 
Tories on terror 

From Our Own Correspondent, Delhi 


Mr Neil Kinnock, the La- 
bour Party leader, yesterday 
_ went out i f his way to defend 
the Conservative Government 
from charges of being soft on 
Sikh te rr ori sm. He told a 
press conference hi the Indian 
capital that “every govern- 
ment ought to be rnmymittmg 
in Its active opposition to 
terrorism”. 

Mr Kinnock sakb “Even 
thongh I have no reason to love 
the present Government, they 
are extremely a n tagonis ti c to 
terrorism, and act accord- 
ingly.” 

Virtually every Indian adh- 
ering met by Mr Kinnock 
during his risk has raised the 
question of what the Indians 
see as British governmental 
indulgence to the extremists, - 
but Mr Khmock has declined 
to admit any serious aititism 
of what Mrs Thatcher's Gov- 
ernment is doing in thfs re- 
spect at least 

Mr Kinnock has urged the 
Indians to take advantage of 
the offer made by the Foreign 
Secretary, Sfr Geoffrey Howe, 
during his visit to the sub- 
continent' last month for a 
ministerial-level contact group 
to discuss individual cases.

After almost as many fare- 
wells as Dame Nellie Melba, 
the P & O ship SS Oriana was 
loosed from her mooring at 
Sydney Harbour yesterday for 
her filial voyage. 

A forlorn crowd of 200 saw 
the last of the great Pacific 
liners draw away from the 
quay after industrial disputes 
had four times delayed her 
departure. She is being towed 
to Japan and a.fature as a

Only five crewmen were 
aboard the 1,540-berth pas- 
senger vessel, the biggest ever 
built in England, and a relic of

ready to contemplate a new 
extradition treaty with India if 
needed. And, Ire added, the 
Labour Party would show “no , 
great reluctance to entertain 
the idea of new arrange- 
ments”. 

Mr Khmock defended the 
Labour Party proposals to 
repeal the 1971 and 1981 
Immigration Nationality 
Acts. The proposals have been 
attacked in Britain since he 
referred to them at a meeting 
of tire India International 
Centre here. 

He said that though the 
report of his proposals was 
accurate they had been ntisan- , 
derstood by Fleet Street com- 
mentators. Labour Party pol- 
icy for five yean had been to 
grt rid of the racial aspects of 
the immigration laws — nota- 
bly die patriality danse. 

The law itself ■ was not , 
racialist, he said, but tire! 
application of an immigration 
system that included these | 
racial clauses might be repre- ■ 
seated as xadaUsL 

Mr Khmock described the 
patriality danse as covertly 
racial because it discriminated 
against applicants for immi- 
gratiea on the basis of their 
ethnic origin. • ■■ -

He said that It was not easy 
for India to manufacture an

and added that Britain could 
“do little more than wish them 
the very best”.

The letter begins on a 
personal note in pointing out 
that be was appointed by Mrs 
Gandhi, who delegated her 
authority to him so that the 
day-to-day organizational 
work could be carried out 
without occupying the Prune 
Minister's time. 

This smooth functioning of 
the organization ended, Mr 
Tripathi said, when Mr Aijun 
Singh was appointed vice- 
president of toe party, and 
dow “office-bearers are ap- 
pointed and replaced, (state 
committees) are dissolved and 
reconstituted, cells are orga- 
nized and reorganized, posts 
are created and abolished in 
the organization and I am 
consulted nowhere. I read 
these developments only in 
the newspapers”. 

But the veteran politician 
then observes that the party's 
recent performance has been 
appalling. 

Mr Tripathi also accuses Mr 
Gandhi of having misman- 
aged the country, saying that 

he had conducted a “musical . _ .

From Keith Dalton 
Manila 

The Philippines' leading 
left-wing alliance, the Nation- 
al Democratic Front, has des- 
ignated an emissary to hold 
top-level talks with the Gov- 
ernment of President Aquino 
that could lead to a ceasefire in 
the 17-year insurgency. 

The identity ofthe emissary | 
and the possible place and 
time for preliminary talks 
have not been announced. 

But the official news agency 
of the National Democratic 
Front (NDF) said that talks 
must be held at the highest 
level, and that guerrilla units 
of the New People's Army 
have been ordered to reject 
any proposal for a regional 
ceasefire. 

The one-page NDF state- 
ment stresses that this effec- 
tively cancels a June 27 
“exploratory dialogue” be- 
tween rebel troops and gov- 
ernment forces on the central 
island of Samar. 

“We have high hope that 
our emissary's efforts will be 
met with co-operation and 
goodwill, believing as we do 
that President Aquino is genu- 
inely committed to the search 
for a just and lasting peace." 

There was no immediate 
statement from the presiden- 
tial palace as to whether the 
choice of emissary was accept- 
able to Mrs Aquino. 


Rio de Janeiro (AP) — The 
Brazilian Minister of Agrari- 
an Development and Reform 
has resigned after being 
pressed by powerful opponents 
of his plan to red i stribute land 
to poor peasants. 

The Minister, Sefior Nelson 
Ribeiro, said that he had 
resigned to allow President 
Sarney room to pot his own 
tone and style on the land 
reform process. 

One of his dose aides said 
SeAor Ribeiro resigned be- 
cause his efforts to promote 
land reform were thwarted by 
opponents within the Govern- 
ment “Ever since the ministry 
was created last year we have 
been blocked,” the aide said. 

“Our budget was not re- 
leased and we were prevented 
from hiring capable people. 
We've been working practical- 
ly with only our fingernails.” 

Seftor Ribeiro stirred con- 
troversy by s e izing property to 
carry out the reform. He had 
the backing of the Roman 
Catholic Church but was op- 
posed by ranchers and poli- 
ticians. 

President Sarney, who took 
office fast year after 2t years 
of military role, has pledged to 
distribute 88 million acres to 
1.4 million peasants within 
four years. So far about 2,000 
peasants have benefited. 

Land reform efforts have 
met violent opposition from 
big land-owners.

As rites of spring go, a new

potatoes can be a big deal.

The winning side 


A superb victory for 
Nigel Mansell and the Williams’ 
team in the Belgian Grand Prix last 
Sunday -the team’s second 
outright win this season. 

But success in Grand Prix is not 
just about driving a great race on 
the day. It involves a rare blend of 
talent, teamwork and technology. 

Mobil advanced synthetic 
lubricants are part of the Williams’ 
winning formula. These synthetic 
oils and greases perform well 


anywhere - in aviation, marine and 
truck engines, in tough industrial 
applications and in your own 
motor car. 

It’s not just on the racetrack that 
we lead the field.

Arguments about which sport needs 


the most fitness have been settled 


by science. Simon Barnes reveals all 


'i • .V; 



SCORES OLTT OF TEN 


W hich sport 
requires the 
greatest fit- 
ness? That 
question 
can prompt 
arguments that ramble on for 
hours while any fitness one 
had m the first place is drunk 
away. Indeed, the first 
triathlon event, which in- 
volved swimming 2.4 miles, 
cycling 112 miles and then 
running a marathon, was held 
after just such an argument 
between a swimmer, a cyclist 
and a runner. 

All sportsmen — footballers, 
oarsmen, skiers — maintain 
that their sport does die most 
for you, but it has always 
seemed that the debate could 
never be resolved. Now Dr 
Craig Sharp, co-director of the 
Human Motor Performance 
Laboratory at Birmingham 
University, has spoiled a mil- 
lion bar-room arguments by 
analysing top performers in 33 
different sports and working 
out, on the basis of tests, 
exactly which sportsmen are 
the fittest. The results are in 
the table — and the clear 
winner is gymnastics. 

Dr Sharp tested up to 100 
practitioners of each sport for 
six different attributes. Most 
of the athletes tested were 
internationals. All were lead- 
ing performers: about the 
lowest level tested were rugby 
players from first-class dubs. 
Dr Sharp is not a great name- 
dropper, hut under pressure 
admitted that among his guin- 
ea pigs were David Moorcroft, 
current 5000m Common- 
wealth champion, tennis play- 
er Annabel Croft and Jonah 
Barrington, former British 
squash champion. Others to 
submit to the ordeal were the 
men's Olympic gymnastic 
squad, first division football- 
ers from Birmingham City, 
Aston Villa and Coventry 
City, the British (subsequently 
the English) squash squad, 
national squads in volleyball, 
speed skating, cyclo-cross and 
canoeing, 1 5 top British mara- 
thon runners and the North- 
ern Theatre Dance Company. 

The six categories in which, 
the sportsmen were tested 
need a little explanation. 

• Cardio-respiratory fitness: 
tests aerobic fitness (the oxy- 
gen delivery systemX Distance 
runners, cyclists and cross- 
country skiers excel here. 
Sprinters, who perform entire- 
ly anaerobically (they replen- 
ish very little oxygen as they 
run) simply do not require it 
in their sport. Accordingly 
they scored a mere four here 

• Muscle speed involves the 
time it takes for an athlete to 
reach peak power. The tests 
involved a series of timed. 


computerized, explosive exer- 
cises. The sprinters did under- 
standably well here, since 
bursting off the blocks is what 
they train for. Sprint cyclists 
and karate exponents also 
scored highly; the ultra-dis- 
tance swimmers and cross- 
country skiers did worst 

• The strength category is 
self-explanatory. Dr Sharp 
found that for no apparent 
reason there were variations 
of up to 10 per cent from day 
to day. The testing was done 
with machines on which you 
push and puQ. and which 
indicate the tension in kilo- 
grams. Distance runners were 
the arch weaklings; while the 
otherwise low scoring rugby 
forwards hit the big 10. 

• Local muscle endurance 
tests the amount of work you 
are capable of. You work at 
some demanding task flat-out 
until the build-up oflactic add 
makes you collapse. The tests 
measure how quickly your 
work-rate foils off, measures 
your fatigue, and then your 
recovery rate as you do the 
whole thing again. The gym- 
nasts scored 10, alongside an 
odd bunch: sprint canoeists, 
ultra-distance swimmers and 
wind-surfers. 

• The flexibility tests played 
havoc with the overall scores 
of many sports. They involved 
various kinds of bending and 
stretching, toe-touching, and 
the angle at which you could 
do the splits. The Olympic 
gymnasts naturally bagged 
tens here, along with the 
dancers. 

• Tests for the percentage of 
body fet measured the thick- 
ness of the skin at various 
sites. The body fet for young 
males averages around 14 per 
cent of body wieght, and for 
females it is 26 per cent. For 
sportsmen, you have an aver- 
age of 10 per cent, and for 
sportswomen, 22 per cent 

The results are fascinating 
and no doubt they will start as 
many arguments as they solve. 
The point to remember is that 
a distance runner, for exam- 
ple, is not trying to build np 
strength, flexibility and high 
muscle speed. He is only 
actually interested in good 
oxygen delivery, local muscle 
endurance and a low percent- 
age of body fet. The rest is 
irrelevant to him. 

Of course the benefits of a 
sport are not just physical 
The table is, as Dr Sharp 
insists, not to be taken too 
seriously . . . certainly not if 
you are an ultra-distance 
swimmer. Do ultra-distance 
swimmers do it for then- 
health? For all those boring 
lengths they do, they would be 
better off playing ping- 
pong...

[Jengduest — and costliest — kinds of 
fittgedSon in the civil courts.

lugger percental share of the dam- 
ages awanted, adding up to between

The huge 'costs and delays are 
major obstacles to obtaining compeit- 
• /- Ration* - Three million people are 

••- n injured in accidents in England and. 

‘ ' ^ Wales each year; but not more than 

i »\ 1 in- 10 per cent of victims daim. 

■* ^ *• There is the problem of finding 







legal and medical experts, the ques- 
tion of funding for those ineligible for 
legal aid, delays by medical authori- 
ties in disclosing the relevant records, 
delays caused by resistance to claims 
by insurance bodies, the delay caused 
by the need to await as accident’s fall 
effects before final compensation and 
finally the delay of the law itseff with 
its long waiting lists for hearings. 

Victims are also deterred by igno- 
rance and confusion over how to 
claim, by lack of a witness or 
evidence, and by fear of costs. “For 
the minority of litigants who pay their 
own way, as with those who are 
granted legal aid subject to making a 
contribution, high costs can generate 
major anxieties over a long period of 
time”, the Lord Chancellor’s depart- 
ment says. “For them the choice may 
lie between, abandoning a daim, 
settling for a low figure, or raising 
funds by liquidating life-savings or 
disposing of the family home.” 

In its recent repoff the verdict of 
the Lord Chancellor’s department 
was blunt. As well as bang inordi- 
nately expensive, file present system 
was “inefficient anddilatory”, cans- . 
ing personal stress, anxiety and 
finanrtal hardship to litigants and 
their families, they said. In short, it 
could not be defended. 

As part of a much wider review of 


the dvfi courts system, it has come up 
with radical proposals for change. 
They propose replacing court hear- 
ings before a judge with a system of 
“trial by written evidence only”. The 
two sides would submit their papers 
to an adjudicator — judge, registrar, 
solicitor or barrister — who would 
make his decision on the basis of the 
documents, similar .to the way -the 
Criminal Injuries Board makes pay- 
ments to victims of crime. ' — 

T he propcsaHs far-reaching: 
with file consent of both 
parties, the system would be 
available for any personal 
injury case. It is also proposed that it 
would be compulsory for certain 
cases, such as road accidents and 
others where no more than £5,000 is 
at issue. If the system took on aU cases 
now limited to the county court it 
would apply to two tbiras of all 
personal injury cases. Costs would be 
cut to a minimum, and the warring 
time between assembling a case file 
and the decision woukfbe days rather" 

than months. - ' - 

For more substantial casesa “carte 
on the table** system requiring each 
.side . to make early and detailed 
disclosure of their case is proposed, as 
well as a strict timetable for steps in 
the proceedings, ' and a pre-trial 


hearing to cut put all but the essential 
issues. The problem of delay when a 
medical condition cannot be prognos- 
ticated should be tackled by trying the 
issue of liability in advance of the 
issue of damages, they propose. 

All this would cut waiting rimes by 
encouraging earlier settlements and 
cutting the length of trials. The 
proposals, which are backed by Lord 
Hail sham, the Lord Chancellor, have 
now gone out for wide consultation. 

The changes stop some way-short 
of a no-fault compensation system 
first proposed by the Pearson Com- 
mission on personal injuries in 1978, 
and supported by the British Medical 
Association. One such scheme exists 
in New Zealand, under which the 
victim does not need to go to court to 
prove negligence: compensation is 
automatic if there is a clear causal 
link between accident and injury. 

But the Government is against 
such a scheme,- which could -cost 
£50xn a year, despite considerable: 
support last year a calTfor its 
introduction by Xord Denning,' for- 
mer Master of foe -Rolls,- was firmly 
rejected by Lord Hailsham. With a 
no-fault scheme therefore very much 
on ice, the present proposals could do 
much for the moment to remedy 
injustice. 


A problem men should not 
feel complacent about 


Three quarters of women 
suffer at some lime from the 
pain, irritation ana vaginal 
discharge caused by an attack 
of thrush / Candida albicans), 
and 45 per cent have had 
more than one episode . So it 
is hardly surprising that their 
problems receive more atten- 
tion in the medical and lay 
press than infections in the 
male. But three per cent of 
partners of women with 
thrush develop an acute 
balano-posthitis. the male 
equivalent. With inflamaiion, 
itching and sometimes ooz- 
ing ; the diagnosis is usually 
obvious and treatment 
straightforward. 

A Jess well-known condition 
is the acute hypersensitivity 
reaction which 15 to 20 per 
cent of men develop after 
intercourse with a woman 
with thrush. The reaction, a 
transient redness and irrita- 
tion, occurs within an hour or 
so and usually disappears 
within 12 hours. But being a 
contact dermatitis, it can 
reinfea the woman, and sur- 
veys have shown thisaccounts 
for a quarter of all cases of 
recurrent thrush attacks in 
women. It confirms the belief 
that both partners should be 
treated. 

Radioactive relief 

If a treatment 
for cancer of 
the prostate 
developed in 
Denmark and 
now being 
tried in three 
British centres — Cardiff, 
London and Bristol — be- 
comes established, it may be 
as unwise for young children 
to sit on their grandad’s knee 
as it was for their elder 
mothers and sisters to learn 
Russian in Kiev. The Danes 
have recently been treating 
early cancer of the prostate by 
implanting up to 50 seeds of 
radioactive iodine in the 
malignant nodules. Although 
this renders the patient mild- 
ly radioactive for between 
three to six months, the very 
low escape of radiation is not 
dangerous for the patient’s 
family as a whole, but does 
pose a theoretical risk for 
young children. 

Doctors do not know why 
cancer of the prostate is on 
the increase. In America it is 
now toe second most com- 
mon cause of death from 
cancer in memTrtatirient is

time it loses its efficacy. 
Surgery is not very successful 
and radical prostatectomy 
always produces impotence 
and often incontinence. 

Radiotherapy has been the 
most popular treatment; ei- 
ther external beam radiother- 
apy, which has the 
disadvantage of affecting the 
rectum as well, or by the 
implantation of seeds of ra- 
dioactive iodine, which has 
until recently involved major 
surgery. 

The Danish system of im- 
plantation using the dear 
picture of the prostate ob- 
tained with ultrasound, 
makes open surgery unneces- 
sary. Twelve needles are in- 
serted, under a general 
anaesthetic, through the skin 
between the patient's legs. 
Aided by two ultrasound 
probes in the rectum they are 
directed to the precise spot in 
the prostate which needs 
treatment. As the needles are 
withdrawn, the radio-iodine 
seeds are deposited. 

Dr Elizabeth Whipp. who 
is treating patients in Bristol - , 
said that it was difficult to 
diagnose prostatic cancer in 
patients at an early stage — 
when the Danish treatment 
was likely to be most effective 
— but even so she was 
enthusiastic about the results 
obtained in the small group 
she had treated. After the 
procedure they suffered no 
discomfort and relumed 
home within 48 hours. 

The patients all felt well 
and were grateful that neither 
their masculinity nor their 
potency had been lost, as 
would have been, the case 
with hormone treatment.

who are trying to reduce their 
fat intake need to remember 
that the fat in beef and mutton 
is highly saturated. But de-

infections, the herpetic virus- 
es and a host of other 
diseases, can affect the nerve 
at this vulnerable point, but 
sadden facial paralysis usual- 
ly has do obvious cause. 

1 When medical science is un- 
certain, a virus or an antoim- 
mone response is blamed. 

The resulting paralysis is 
known as Bell’s palsy after 
Sir Charles Bell (1774-1842). 
It can have serious conse- 
quences as the paralysis can 
prevent the eyelids from dos- 
ing and cause damage to file 
cornea. The paralysis has to 
be distinguished from that 
caused by a stroke or other 
interacranial lesion. When 
due to a stroke, the muscles of 
the forehead, controlled by 
both sides of the brain, are 
spared. In Bell’s palsy the 
forehead is also paralysed. 

The. outcome, tends to de- 
pend on the degree of initial 
paralysis; if it is incomplete, a 
fail and quick recovery can be 
expected. If it is severe, 
electrical tests may help to 
distinguish those who will do 
well, for if the nerve retains 
the ability to react to electri- 
cal stimulation there is a 90 
per cent chance of recovery; if 
not, only 20 per cent 

Treatment is designed to 
reduce pressure on the nerve 
in the canaL But the results of 
; surgery have been disappoint- 
ing; although very heavy 
dosfes of steroids for 14 days 
have proved more effective, 
providing that the course is 
staried-lmmedhttely.

Gcoige Carman QC who 
represented Caroline TnrviBe, 
is one of Hie country’s most, 
eminent lawyers. “There is no 
rigid scale of damages”, he 
says. “There are recognized 
brackets for conventional 
awards but at the end of the 
day it becomes ultimately a 
matter for judicial discretion. 

“But the main el ements of 
damages are not usually as 
compensations for pain and 
. suffering and loss of life but 
more mien for the cost of 
caring for the severely dis- 
abled and, of course, for their 
total loss of earning capacity. 

“In the case of death, dam- 
ages are usually very much 
more reduced than in the case 
of a prolonged and totally 
shattered life where the victim 
will live for many years.” 

In assessing damages, the 
court begins by awarding a 
figure for “pain and suffering 
.and loss of amenity of life” up . 
to-a ceiling of around £85,000. 
It then e $ri mate* the victim’s 
loss of earning capacity based- 
on his or her existence and 
potential ^frills, age and fife 
expectancy. 

Finally, the cost of dolled 
nursing care for the rest of his 
or her natural lifespan is 
' worked out. “When we are 
tallfing about 24 hour nursing 

on a seven-days-a-week basis 

in a domestic context for 
perhaps 50 years or more of 
life, we are. talking of an 
enormous sum which dearly 
can be four or five tunes more 
‘ than "the figure for pain and 
suffixing. Carman says. ... ■ - 

- “It would certainly- not be 

unusual these days in a case in 
which someone is re n d ered 
totally helpless at a very young 

age to see the cost of care 
evaluated as something in the > 
order of. £300,000 to 
£400,000.” 

Yet even that amount is 
derisory when compared to 
settlements made by Ameri- 
can courts, where jury awards 
averages! million a case and 
lawyers operating on a fee 
frays by which they c an keep 
up to SQ per cent of the award. . 

-But the American system 
has brought about a ensrisin 
the medical profession, with 
doctors having fo pay up to 
5100,000 a year in insurance 
to protect themselves against, 
malpractice claims and fre- 
quently resorting to 
“defensive" medicine in 
which the patient's interests 
may not always be their 
primary concern. 

“The doctors in this country 
have such hist oric a lly high 
ethical standards that they, will 
not be deflected by claims 



Georae Carman: worn £600,900 
Mr Caroline TurviRe 

< The system 
fosters great 
bitterness 
and despair’ 

against them", says Carman. 
But he admits that “there is 
always a danger that litigation 
can destroy confidence in the 
medical profession and it is 
important that society keeps 
the balance between preserv- 
ing that confidence and. at the 
same time, allowing people 
who have genuine — and I 
stress genuine --grievances to 
bring them efficiently and 
without delay before _ the 
courts for compensation.” 

In Britain, the defendants in 
such cases are normally the 
area health authorities- which 
pays any damages out of its 
National Health budget allo- 
cation and/or the consultant 
who by virtue of his National 
Health service contract has to 
be professionally indemnified 
against medical negligence 
claims. 

“We are certainly seeing an 
increase in the numbers of 
complaints and my hunch is 
that they are going to continue 
increasing , says Dr 
R_ N. Palmer, deputy secre- 
tary of the Medical Protection 
Society, one . of the main 
protection groups. 

. “The profession is worried 
about the alarming increases 
in the awards of damages that 
m the long ran come put of 
their pockets. The fact is that 
it only happens to the tiniest 
proportion of the total, ntnn- . 
ber of doctors but the pnblic 
have got unrealistic expecta- 
tions as a result of what they 
read in the newspapersand see 
on television." y 
Carman feels -that much 
could be done to improve 
communication between the 


medical profession and pa- 
tients who suffer from its 
mistakes. 

“One of the shortcomings of | 
our present system is that 
certain health authorities 
practice defensive litigation 
and it is unfortunate that 
fallerand more detailed expla- 
nations are not given to people 
who have a medical misfor- 
tune — which may or may not 
give rise to a claim ofj 
negligence. 

“It fosters great bitterness 
and despair among victims 
and their relatives whereas 
xpore sympathetic communi- 
cation at the highest level in 
the early stages would often 
heal the wounds and prevent 
acrimonious litigation.” 

In a climate of increasing 
economic pressure within the 
NHS, and growing expecta- 
tions among (he public of 
medical technology's ability to 
cure everything, it is inevita- 
ble that medical- malpractice 
claims should flourish. 

“Obviously the primary 
motive of litigants is 
compensation”, says Carman, 
“but I suppose there may be a 
secondary motive of guilt in 
the case of parents or relatives 
who perhaps feel they have 
not done enough for the 
victim or didn't lake enough 
care or make enough 
enquiries. 

“But an award of damages 
by the court in tragic cases of 
persona] injuries is, at best, 
always an imperfect solution. 
It does not provide true 
compensation, nor does it set 
out to do so. It does not heal 
wounds or make the patient 
better. And in cases of death, 
one can understand that the 
bereaved's relatives may find 
litigation distasteful Howev- 
er, it’s often embarked upon 
because of the financial de- 
pendency of others upon the 
deceased.” 

Even so, he stresses that, 
“the law and medicine are in 
no way set on a collision 
course, although, inevitably, 
the- role of medicine and the 
practice of medicine has to be 
ultimately under the supervi- 
sion of the law. 

“Because of the very high 
ethical standards governing 
medicine in this country, the 
courts are content to leave 
very considerable discretion 
to the judgment of individual 
doctors. 

“But at the end of the day, 
for civil and criminal law, the 
couru have to exercise a 
monitoring role." ■

Renewed 

interest 

Two months after Barclays Bank 
announced fresh measures' to scale 
down its South African invest' 
ments, I discover it is indirectly 
sponsoring a jamboree for expatri- 
ate South Africans in this country 
tomorrow. The celebrations at the 
Trinity Church of England School, 
Esher, mark South Africa's 25th 
Republic Day. The cash has been 
provided by Barclays National 
Bank of South Africa, 40 per cent 
owned by Barclays. Barclays chair- 
man, Sir Timothy Be van, who last 
year called apartheid “repugnant 
wrong, unchristian and unwork- 
able", is a non-executive director 
of the associate company. To- 
morrow's fun begins with a flag- 
raising ceremony and the playing 
of the South African national 
anthem. Barclays, which has lent 
more than £800 million to South 
Africa, is sensitive about public 
identification with its South Af- 
rican associates. It stressed yes- 
terday: “We have not made a 
donation to this event." The 
programme of events, however, 
unhelpfully lists the sponsor as 
“Barclays Bank".

Oh, brother 

As the BBC prepares to reel from a 
new book on its travails. I can 
offer a crumb of comfort. While 
author Michael Leapinan was 
uncovering the corporation’s 
gaffes for The Last Days of the

their own. The caption to a dust- 
jacket portrait of the BBC chair-

to "Lord Young”, and the confu-

Employment Secretary, is re- 
peated in a chan inside. "I should 
have noticed, I should have

Raw deal 

Artist Martin Wiener is feeling 
vindicated. A year ago a dealer 
who had commissioned an erotic 
print from him for an an fair at 
Olympia refused to hang it be- 
cause it depicted a nude male 
wading waist-deep in transparent 
and fish-infested water. Sotheby's 
has now sold an artist's proof of 
the etching for £60. The Bohemian 
purchaser is Sir Peter Green, 
former chairman of Lloyd's. 
"Disturbing? I thought it was 
hilarious," he says.

Dead bat 

My cricket story runs and runs. 
The first stroke, you remember, 
was played on this very pitch on 
Tuesday when I took issue with 
Wisden for describing an inni ng* 
foreclosed by death at the Lord’s 
wicket in 1942 as “29 not out". 
Since then you have flung me 
copious suggestions from the out- 
field. The latest deliveries include; 
"pegged before wicket"; “timed 
out"; "pavilioned in splendour”; 
“R.I.P. (recumbent in pads)”; 
“bye-bye”; "laid out” and, bearing 
in mind the figure of Father Time 
at cricket’s headquarters, “scythed 
out . I shall declare this story 
closed on Monday. 

PHS 


I think 1 had better explain (m’lud) 
what I am doing with a pile of 
American pornographic maga- 
zines. I brought them back for a 
friend (yes, m'lud, I know that's 
what they all say) who needed 
them as research material for a 
forthcoming book (yes, m’lud, I 
know that's what they all say), and 
if the friend in question is reading 
these words, let them be taken as a 
declaration of intent: in no 
circumstances whatever would I 
do such a thing again. 

Mind: ! was breaking no law 
(yes, m'lud . . . ). The magazines 
are certainly pornographic, but 
similar things are available, 
un prosecuted, in any of our dues, 
and they are not prosecuted 
because the likelihood of convic- 
tion is so slight that the authorities 
ignore them; these, though I am 
assured that they are more ex- 
treme than the home-published 
ones, do not include scenes of 
sadism or bestiality (the rule-of- 
thumb test nowadays), and if the 
measure of what is legally permit- 
ted has now moved far enough to 
include such material, so be it I do 
not propose to set myself up as a 
jobbing censor. 

Only, you see, I felt it incum- 
bent upon me (on the ground that 
all experience is valuable) to look 
through the magazines before 
handing them over, and I have to 
say that by the time 1 had finished 
doing so. my liberal views on 
matters of this kind had taken a 
relentless, powerful and un- 
expected battering. 

First, let me gel the most 
obvious point out of the way. I 
have never in my life had an 
experience so unerotic: these 
magazines seem to me so entirely 
anaphrodisiac that they might 
have been designed to foment an 
outbreak of fanatical celibacy. If 
they seem so to me, they must 
presumably seem so to others too, 
but here fallacy rears its head. I 
had no prior idea of what the 
magazines contained (I have 
never been interested in pornog- 
raphy, and cannot recall even 
leafing through such material), 
and have no intention of ever 
opening another, yet they are 
dearly sold in huge numbers, and 
if they are not sold to men like me, 
then there are men, and very 
many of them, who do find them 
arousing. And if that is so — and it . 
must be, else how could they exist? 

- our world is in more trouble 
than I had known. 

For throughout the magazines, 
photographs and text alike have 
one theme only, one attitude only, 
one lesson only, one invitation 
only. It is that women are things, 
objects, receptacles, instruments-, 
that their nature is passive, insen- 
sate. usable, empty; that they exist 
to comply, offer, submit, serve. 

I must particularize; the squea- 
mish should skip. In the photo- 
graphs, the characteristic pose — 
there are at least a dozen such in 
every one of the magazines — is of 
the woman fondling herself In.. 
almost as many, though the same 
thing is happening, this is being 
done by others, in a significant 
proportion by other women. 

There are, obviously, many 
pictures of coition, some of them 
in multiple form; in all, the 
women are portrayed as no more 
than an adjunct to the men's 
activity. Most faces are contorted; 
presumably the photographer and 
the models wanted to convey 
sexual pleasure, but to my eye they 
seem mostly to be registering 
boredom. Some of the laces are 
beautiful, some hideous; very few 
show any sign of feeling or 
thought, indeed of any capacity for 
either. More breasts are sagging 
than not. 

The words that separate the 
photographs are of a monotony 


Bernard Levin: the way we live now 

The hateful 
shame of 


David Watt 




pornography 


that is scarcely to be believed; 
however the theme is introduced, 
whatever the background which- 
ever form of sexuality is con- 
cerned whether the article is 
entitled “Confessions of a teenage 
lesbian" or “Let’s do it in the 
sand", the result is the same: a 
portrayal of a woman as nothing 
but a willing orifice, her world 
reduced to the filling of it. 

Perhaps the most significant 
lines in all this collection are in a 
letter which purports to come 
from a man in prison awaiting 
execution. It reads: “I want to say 
you've got the best mag I ever laid 
my eyes on and to show my 
appreciation, I'm going to walk to 
the gas chamber with a copy of it 
and rule all the ladies in hellP’ 

Now: you will notice that I have 
not used any such words as 
“dirty", “filth", “obscene". Nor 
do l intend to; I am not in the 
same business as Lord Longford 
or Mrs Whitehouse, and I do not 
believe that what disgusts me 
should be abolished or banned 
because I do not presume to 
believe that my response to such 
material is the only possible one, 
or for that matter that banning is 
of any use in this field On the 
other band I have never been 
greatly impressed by the defence 
of pornography through the argu- 
ment from catharsis, and I am 
very considerably less impressed 
by it now: the familiar — too 
familiar — claim that this materia] 
is nothing more than a mastur- 
batory aid for men with problems 
about relationships cannot be 
disproved by my feeling that it is 
wholly repellent rather than invit- 
ing, because, as f have said the 
existence of the magazines (and in 
such numbers, incidentally I could 
have made half a dozen entirely 


different selections) shows that 
many men must be stimulated by 
it. But stimulation, like peace, is 
indivisible; the man on Death 
Row planned to die with a copy of 
Hustler in his hand but he also 
planned to “rule all the ladies in 
hell" afterwards. 

1 do not know, and nor does 
anybody else, whether, and if so to 
what extent, material of this kind 
tends to reinforce feedings or 
disperse them. The imitative ef- 
fect, if any, can hardly be very 
straightforward: very few unhappy 
men in dirty macintoshes would 
be able to afford the settings in 
which the models are mostly 
portrayed (though a closer look 
makes clear that the lush 
surroundings are essentially 
cheapjack, and the level of 
sophistication pitifully low), and 
fewer still to match the physical 
agility demanded without running 
the risk of a slipped disc or a 
hernia. But that is, perhaps, the 
point. For if you take away the 
surface impression of the pictures, 
and the relentless throbbing and 
shoving of the words, you are left 
with a residue that, even if it has 
no lasting effect on the readers, is 
unmistakably composed of a deep, 
inevitably aggressive, desire to 
degrade woman. Not women, let 
alone beautiful women or ugly 
ones, ready ones or reluctant ones, 
feminine ones or feminist ones, 
but the very essence and nature of 
womankind. I do not believe it is 
possible for a man, whether a 
detached intellectual, an homme 
moyen sensuei, a lecher or a 
moron, to read through this 
material and not feel immersed in 
the haired of the female sex that it 
exudes. A man may feel it, as 1 did, 
with horror, or with satisfaction, 
or with lust; but one who claims 

Paula Youans 



that it isn't there is deceiving 
himself 

The Labour Pa try's new 
Consumers’ Charter includes & 
promise to restrict or even ban 
advertising which relies on the 
"degrading" portrayal of women. 
You wouldn't think that even tire 
Labour Party could get something 
as wrong as that: the whole point 
of the advertisements that are 
denounced is precisely that they 
do not degrade women, they 
falsely and impossibly glamorize 
them. Women in advertisements 
are always beautiful, and they are 
seen lying in luxury on sunny 
beaches, or reclining on the bon 
nets of very expensive motor-cars, 
or sipping exciting drinks in the 
company of handsome and well 
dressed men, or sweeping into 
stately homes in beautiful gowns. I 
don't know whether the Labour 
Party’s promise is to be taken 
seriously (1 imagine not), but if 
they suppose that advertisers 
could use Miss Frances Morell to 
sell their products, they are greatly 
mistaken. 

Now the Page Three girls are the 
same, mutatis mutandis, as the 
girls in the advertisements. So far 
from being portrayed as the 
degraded, infinitely exploitable, 
invariably available creatures of 
the pornographer, they are all 
romantic princesses, fairy crea- 
tures whom nobody has ever met 
in real life and who would crumble 
into powder ai a touch. Of course, 
those Members of Parliament 
(almost all Tories) who sniggered 
and winked and licked their lips 
and belched when Mrs Care Short 
introduced her Bill to ban Page 
Three are so many pigs, and 
displayed all the characteristic 
signs of the half-man who needs to 
convince himself of his sexual 
prowess because he fears that he 
cannot convince anybody else. 
But they did not prove that Mrs 
Short was right. 

And yet I have to admit that I 
am not certain she was wrong. I 
think she was. because the distinc- 
tion between the breasts on Page 
Three and those in Penthouse 
seems clear to me. There is a clue 
in the fact that (he Page Three 
ones, and the ones in the 
advertisements, frequently raise a 
smile — a happy smile, not a 
contemptuous one — in the men 
who look at them, and the girls 
themselves are portrayed smiling 
almost without exception.- Bin no 
one could raise any kind of smile 
in contemplating the pomo- 
grapher’s women, and in the 450 
pages of the stuff that I have 
waded through. I could find only 
two or three smiling faces among 
many hundreds. Pornography, it 
seems, is no laughing matter. 

But I do not know. I do not 
know what causes violence against 
women, contempt for women, 
indifference to the feelings or 
aspirations of women. I do know 
that the pornography I have so 
recently studied, whether it does 
harm or not, shames'our world, 
not for the explicitness of its 
sexual matter but for its attitude to . 
women. The need. for such rna- • 
terial betokens a desperate empti 
ness in the men who buy it, the . 
provision of it a no less desperate 
deadness of feeling in those who 
sell Such desperation, whatever it 
may issue in, cannot be healthy, 
cannot be on the side of life. 
Perhaps Blake was wrong; it is not 
the harlot's cry that will weave old 
England's winding-sheet, but the 
pornographer's. For my part, I can 
only conclude by saying that it will 
be a very long time before I can 
shake off the feeling that in 
examining those magazines I had 
peered into a sulphurous abyss, 
and it may be even longer before I 
can look at Page Three with the 
same eyes as before 2 did so. 


Sniping, oui; but a shoot-out, non 


Paris 

“Cohabitation is the opposite of a 
Western: it is the first who draws 
who loses," Jean -Claude Gaudin, 
leader of the centre-right UDF 
party in the National Assembly, 
warned this week as the first 
strains appeared in what so far has 
been a remarkably harmonious 
period of coexistence between 
President Mitterrand and Jacques 
Chirac, the prime minister. 

The legitimist French do not 
like political unheavals. Many 
were greatly worried about France 
entering the uncharted waters of 
political cohabitation between a 
socialist president and a right- 
wing government after Chirac 
won the parliamentary elections 
on March 16. Their relief, and 
indeed gratitude, that the much- 
predicted crisis has not (yet) 
materialized has been translated 
into dramatic boosts in the 
popularity ratings of both 
Mitterrand and Chirac. 

The latest polls show that 
cohabitation is generally consid- 
ered a good thing, and an 
overwhelming majority of French- 
men now hope Mitterrand will 
remain In office until his seven- 
year mandate comes to a natural 
end in 1988. Both he and Chirac 
know that the man who is held 
responsible for bringing cohabita- 
tion to a premature end would not 
be thanked by the electorate. 

Anything as dramatic as a 
shoot-out may never happen. The 
game of politics, especially when 
played by someone as astute as 
Mitterrand, is a subtle one, 
involving finely-tuned tactical 
manoeuvres and carefully-placed 
tripwires in a constant attempt to 
wrong-foot your opponent 
Until now, there has been 
general surprise that the cohabita- 
tion experiment has been working 
so smoothly. 

Mitterrand knows how to bide 
his time, and for the moment he is 
simply waiting and watching, 
quietly putting down markers of 
his disapproval of certain govern- 
ment decisions, while not actively 
interfering with day-to-day busi- 
ness. He thus continues to benefit 
from the prestige of his office 


Diana Geddes assesses the growing strains 
of the Mitterrand-Chirac ‘cohabitation’ 



without bearing any opprobrium 
for the government's mistakes. 

During bis traditional 
“pilgrimage" to the top of the 
Sol utre rock in Burgundy on 
Ascension Sunday, Mitterrand 
claimed be bad no intention of 
conducting a "guerrilla war” 
against the government. But it is 
difficult to see how else his sniping 
at the government over the past 
few weeks could be viewed. 

He has expressed his opposition 
to a whole series of government 
plans, including privatization, eas- 
ing restrictions on redundancies, 
reducing autonomy for New 
Caledonia, and using decrees to 
determine new constituency 
boundaries. 

Some right-wing MP5 have 
begun wondering out loud how 
much longer the president's snip- 
ing can be allowed to continue 
before it begins to do actual harm 
to the government. 

Pierre MessmeT, former Gaull- 
ist prime minister and now leader 
of the RPR group, called upon 
Mitterrand on Tuesday to inop 
playing a “double game"and to 
choose between the role of 
"umpire", which he had claimed 
to be the president's legitimate 
function, arid that of a "political 
militant". 

The provocation Is not all 
onesided, however. Although 
Chirac appears to have been as 
scrupulous as Mitterrand in 
observing the letter of the 
constitution, he seems increas- 
ingly in danger of lese-majeste : of 
overetepping the line oefining the 
legitimate exercise of his prime 
ministerial powers and encroach- 
ing more and more openly into the 
field of foreign policy and defence. 

These are matters over which 
Mitterrand has admitted he does 
not have absolute power, but in 
which he nevertheless considers 
he has a right to take the lead. 

In that respect, the Tokyo 
economic summit was a minor 


victory for Mitterrand. Chirac had 
established his right to participate 
in decision-making on foreign 
policy by going to Tokyo. It was 
the first time Mitterrand had been 
accompanied by his prime min- 
ister at such a summit Yet 
Mitterrand emerged dearly as 
France's chief spokesman. 

Chirac will accompany the 
president again to the EEC sum- 
mit at The Hague next month, for 
example, though probably not on 
Mitterrand's more purely ceremo- 
nial visits to New York and 
Moscow in early July. 

Chirac appeared to go beyond 
what was constitutionally correct 
when be spoke ai length at a 
diplomatic press lunch in Paris 
last week, marking slight but 
significant shifts in the new 
government's policy on a whole 
'range of foreign policy issuesJess 
antagonism toward South Africa; 
closer relations with Iran and 
Syria; no aid for Nicaragua or 
Cuba; a return to greater emphasis 
on francophone Africa in France’s 
relations wiih the Third World. 

Some of those shifts may have 
been discussed and even agreed 
with Mitterrand, but it was Chirac 
who appeared to be (along the 
initiative. 

In this cohabitation war, the 
constitution provides Mitterrand 
with three potential weapons: foe 
power to dissolve parliament, to 
organize a referendum or to resign 
and call a presidential election. 

Mitterrand has himself dis- 
missed the first two as being 
ineffective at present. New par- 
liamentary elections would be by 
no means certain to restore the 
socialist majority that he lost in 
March; while a “yes" vote on a 
referendum on a popular issue 
such as reducing the presidential 
mandate to five years would not 
guarantee a victory for the social- 
ist presidential candidate. 

So there remains foe option of 
an early presidential election. As 


Mitterrand has pointed out, he 
alone can decide when and if that 
will be. Some political com- 
mentators are already talking of 
the late autumn as a possibility, 
when foe 1987 budget with its 
proposed cuts of 40 billion francs 
• (£3.7 billion) in government 
spending, will be under debate in 
parliament, and when foe new 
government will start being judged 
on what are not expected to be 
good economic results. 

After a period of relative indus- 
trial calm under foe socialists, 
with foe lowest number of days 
lost through strikes last year since 
1946, there are signs that foe 
unions are becoming restless. 

A pay freeze for public-sector 
employees, coupled with the lift- 
ing of controls on redundancies 
and the Chirac government's 
plans for privatization, have an- 
gered the unions. The hefty spend- 
ing cuts are sure to provoke a 
further outcry. So will plans to cut 
the real value of pensions. 

Economic forecasts predict a 
further 200,000 unemployed by 
foe end of foe year. Despite the fall 
in oil prices and the dollar, the 
trade deficit is expected to remain 
obstinately high, and there is no 
sign yet of foe promised pick-up in 
business confidence and invest- 
ment 

The government is now busy 
rushing through legislation in an 
attempt to build up a record of 
electoral promises respected, in 
case Mitterrand does decide to call 
a snap election. It is by no means 
certain he will want to do so. 

Shortly before foe elections, he 
told journalists: “The only thing 
that is certain in the coming two 
years is that I will be president of 
foe republic.” On another occa- 
sion, he expressed foe hope that 
one of foe great achievements of 
his presidency would be “foe 
establishment of a democracy 
sufficiently solid so that we can 
have a change of government 
without problems, as in Britain or 
Germany”. Perhaps an extended 
period of relatively peaceful co- 
habitation is foe only way to prove 
that is possible. 


Nothing to fear 
but fear itself

Having been in Italy last weekend, 
trying not to look too Anglo-Saxon 
and observing the languid security 
arrangements at Rome airport 
with a nervous eye. I missed foe 
clips from the Prime Minister’s 
impassioned plea to the Ameri- 
cans to come and spend their 
money in Britain. 1 do not blame 
her for trying. The trouble is foaL I 
cannot believe her approach will 
have had the slightest effect she 
was pulling at foe wrong strings. 

People are very odd indeed 
about risk. Most normal, rational 
Americans, of whom we may 
assume there are proportionately 
(almost) as many as normal 
rational Europeans, know per- 
fectly well That it is more dan- 
gerous to venture on to foe Los 
Angeles Expressway or go round 
the corner for a newspaper in New 
York than it is to take a trip to Eu- 
rope this year. 

Large numbers of Americans 
continue to live close to nuclear 
power stations similar to foe one 
on Three Mile Island that nearly 
killed thousands a few years ago. 
or potentially lethal chemical 
plants owned and operated by the 
company that permitted foe Bho- 
pal disaster to occur. Yet even 
they presumably prefer to take the 
slight risk of staying at home 
rather than foe even slighter risk 
of going abroad. 

The reasons for this curious 
result include some rational fac- 
tors foal don't have anything to do 
with risk, notably foe sharp fall in 
the value of the dollar, but tbe 
main cause is the fact — common 
to all human beings, American. 
European and Hottentot — that 
we do not normally weigh up risks 
at alL but merely make an 
intuitive judgement based on how 
frightened we are. Fear is a 
product of the imagination. And 
foe things we fear most are those 
on which the imagination has 
most room to work — that is, 
those about which we know least. 

An event calculated to produce 
a really good attack of panic 
should have at least two and 
preferably all five of the following 
characteristics. It must be (a) 
recently shown to be possible; (b) 
sudden, dramatic and 'arbitrary, 
(c) remote from normal experi- 
ence; (d) mysterious in its causa- 
tion; and (e) personally calamitous 
if it comes about 
The reason why foe last motor- 
way pile-up we witnessed and foe 
(rationally) quite alarming road 
accident statistics do not keep us 
off foe road is that a car crash does 
not meet any of these conditions, 
except perhaps the first. We can 
hear in our mind’s ear the crunch • 
of bones but the imagination is 
soothed by several other thoughts. 
We think we know foe causes of 
motor smashes and believe (to-- 
some extent wrongly) that our 
own skill and care will always 
prevent it happening to us. We tell 
ourselves that even if there is 
trouble, it won’t be like an air 
crash; we can come out alive. 


Contrast this with the nuclear 
and terrorism scares. In the first 
we had a spectacular event io 

people thinking and consequences 
utterly strange ar.d science-fic- 
tional. A death?* "influence" that 
nobody can see and whose con- 
sequences are shrouded in mys- 
tery and ignorance steals darkly 
across the face of Europe. Who 
knows where it will stop or how* 
many generations may be poi- 
soned? 

As for terrorism, the case is 
more complicated- For Europeans 
it is not exactly comfortable, but 
thev have seen it before and have 
had" time to assess the real risks at 
first hand The American imagina- 
tion. on the other hand having 
little or no experience to guide it, 
has transformed Europe into an 
alien and monstrous jungle in 
which every dark-skinned waiter 
may be a’ terrorist and every 
suitcase a bomb. 

This is a familiar phenomenon. 

In the 1 960s. for example. British 
sociologists found that fear and 
haired of coloured immigrants i‘ 
was often greatest in those parts of 
the country where no black had. or 
was likely to. set foot. Neverthe- 
less. it presents a deepseated 
problem that cannot be disposed 
of by a quick burst from Mrs 
Thatcher's laser and bland re- 
assurances from foe Central 
Electricity Generating Board. 

What else can they do. though? 
The force of this question is often 
overlooked, especially by the me- 
dia which have a vested interest in 
denouncing humbug and exposing 
“cover-ups”. The “authorities" in 
any crisis are quite often in the 
genuine dilemma that if they tell 
the whole truth to a public which 
is capable of being as daft as the 
Americans are now being, they 
wifi merely increase panic. 

The Ukrainian authorities were 
grossly negligent in not evacuating 
the immediate neighbourhood of 
Chernobyl for 48 hours after foe 
accident, but they are doubtless 
congratulating themselves for not 
having set off a mass exodus from 
Kiev by revealing the full extent of 
the danger straight away. 

The reality is that when such 
crises arise governments arc under 
enormous practical pressure to 
damp down the immediate 
conflagration by starving people's 
fears of fuel. Where they are much 
more at fault is in ducking the 
responsibility of taking the slow, 
long-term steps necessary to fill , 
foe knowledge vacuum with facts ; 
rather than fears. 

When they do so, as in the case 
of Aids, foe results are remarkable. 
-When they obfuscate over many 
. years, as foe CEGB has done, or 
fill up their people’s heads with 
self-servingjubbish as President 
Reagan has done over terrorism, 
they mast expect ihe responses 
foretold by Francis Bacon: "Men 
fear death as children fear to go in 
the dark: and as that natural fear 
in children is increased with tales, 
so is foe other".

.As World Cup excitement builds 
to a dizzying height of tension and 
excitement in foe soccer-mad 
nation that is modem Mexico 
(writes our Football Correspon- 
dent, Rene McGrit), astonishing 
news has just come through that 
93 per cent of foe world couldn't 
care less. Yes, 93 per cent of foe 
world's population is either starv- 
ing or just praying that foe World 
Cup will be over as soon as 
possible! As this goes entirely 
counter to what we have been 
taught to believe about football, I 
asked Portugal's Vice-Supremo, 
Alberto de Robzon, for his com- 
ments. 

“I am not surprised. Brian," he 
told me. “Ninety-three per cem of 
my team is not interested either. 
All they want is more money and 
free seats for foe girlfriends. 
Frankly, I don’t think we have a 
chance unless we get 11 new 
players -or they get 11 new 
girlfriends. Or maybe the 
girlfriends will bring their own 
seats. We are most afraid of 
Scotland." 

If 93 per cem of foe world 
couldn't care less about the World 
Cup, this certainly doesn't apply 
to the world's scientists (writes our 
Seismology Correspondent, 
George Rifr). 93 per cent of whom 
are convinced that a major earth- 
quake could happen in Mexico 
during foe World Cup, and very 
possibly actually during a match. I 
asked West German Vice- 
Supremo Erik von Robsohn how 
mnch he feared a disastrous quake 
situation. 

“Nicht at all, Brian," he told 
me. “We have instructed our team 
that if a great chasm opens up 
during the game in the ground, 
and foe terraces fall, killing thou- 
sands. we must immediately play 
defensively, bringing E M. Vor- 
ster back on foe right and D. H. 
Lorenz back on foe left. Also, they 
are not to fall- into the holes. We 
fear nothing. Except maybe 
Scotland." 

Luckily, if an earthquake does 
occur during a game, then all 
players will be out in foe open and 
it will only be foe crowd which is 
affected. But in the light of a recent 
poll showing that over 100 per 
cent of women in the world are 
sickened by the prospect of foe 
World Cup (continues onr Fashion 
Correspondent, DrnsUla Bouquet) 

I asked the wife of the Italian Vice^ 
Supremo, Anna Robsonioni, just 


how she evaluated the main 
teams, fashionwise. 

“Well. Brian carissima." she 
crooned. “I just love your English 
shins with the designer's name all 
over them - is it Mitsubishi, 
something like that? I adore foe 
simple, ankle-length robes of foe 
Moroccan team, so billowing and 
yet so cool in this terrific heaL 
Also 1 like foe bandoliers of the 
Bulgarian team and the underwear 
of the Canadians, with washing 
instructions in both French and 
English, and 1 am just crazy about v 
the shirts of the Russians which, if 
reversed, read. ‘Help, I wish to 
defect' — no, 1 am just joking! 
Only Scotland do I fear." 

Another point of interest for 
those who can’t stand football 
(writes onr Music Critic, Jeremy 
Quiff) is foe variety of records pul 
out by foe different cup squads. 
They range from Iraq’s fighting 
little 45, “We are Going to Grind 
Khomeini’s Face in foe Mud and 
Possibly Get id the Quarter-Finals 
As Well", to a caurhy linle number 
from Bulgaria. "All the Turkish 
Players in Our Team Have 
Changed Their Name Voluntarily, 
Thank You", i asked Luis 
Robison. Vice-Supremo of 
Argentina's much-fancied choral 
squad, to comment on other 
footballing chart hopefuls. 

“Well, Brian hombre." he mur- 
mured, "1 do not think we have 
much to fear from foe Germans’ 

‘Ra Ra Ra\ foe English 'Here We 
Go, Here We Go’, or indeed the 
Danish ‘Excuse Me. Please. Is 
This the Wav to MexicoT 1 am 
impressed by the thoughtful 
French ditty. ‘Si Tu m'Aimais

Coupe Mondiale. Ah. Merci, 
Cherie’, but I find foe most 
fearsome threat in Scotland’s 
contribution. *Ah*m Goin' tae 
Walk All Over Ye Till Your Teeth 
Pop Out like Grape Pips'." 

And there’s plenty else to enjoy K 
here in Mexico, even if you don’t 
like football (concludes oar Sun- 
dries Expert, Roger Thesaurus). 

Did you know that in this very 
Catholic country, ail foe main 
stadium scoreboards are powered 
by more than 50,000 candles? And 
foal any member of foe English

BROTHERS IN LAW 


Lord Hailsham, the Lord 
Chancellor, is fond of drawing 
attention to his impeccable 
barristerial pedigree. He is 
justly proud of the generations 
ofHoggs who have practised at 
the Bar with distinction. That 
close association with one 
branch of the legal profession, 
however, does not necessarily 
make him the best judge of its 
achievements and its future. 

His address to the first 
annual conference of the Bar 
(can any other body have 
waited five centuries before its 
inaugural conclave?) con- 
tained a robust and passionate 
defense of its functions and 
practices, and of the existing 
division between banisters 
and solicitors. It was a valiant 
and combative speech, but it 
did not persuade that there is 
no need for change. 

At one level, that change is 
being sought by solicitors 
demanding greater rights of 
audience in the higher courts. 
But the question of who pleads 
in what courts masks a deeper 
issue, one which goes to the 
root of the historical separa- 
tion of the legal profession. 

The Bar’s argument, sup- 
ported by the Lord Chancellor, 
is that the public interest 
requires that there be a tier of 
lawyers who are specialists in 
advocacy or in a particular 
field of law, and who are 
independent and available 
(through solicitors) to all Only 
the existing structure, the argu- 
ment continues, provides that 
mixture of independence, 
competence and general 
availability. Banisters are pre- 
pared, at the limit, to concede 
that some of the trappings and 
traditions are not stnctly nec- 
essary; but they are adamant 
that the existing professional 
division must remain invio- 
late. 

The public has already de- 
tected one consequence of the 
present structure — that in 
many cases the costs of going 
to law are increased, and speed 
and efficiency decreased, by 


the need to employ two law- 
yers where one would do. The 
extent of the duplication is 
contested, but much could be 
done (and, to an extent, is 
already being done) to reduce 
it without any fundamental 
change to the separation of the 
professions — for instance, by 
not always requiring a solicitor 
to be present in court with the 
banister briefed, or by allow- 
ing a client to see his barrister 
in the absence of his solicitor. 

The main flaw in the argu- 
ment for the status quo is of a 
different nature. It is that, 
assuming that it is desirable to 
have specialist lawyers, the 
present structure does not 
necessarily provide that 
specialisation. 

Consider the reality. Solic- 
itors and banisters take dif- 
ferent examinations and are 
subjected to different methods 
of professional training. The 
path to the Bar is neither more 
diffic ult nor more specific than 
that leading to the solicitor’s 
profession, yet upon qualifica- 
tion the barrister is deemed 
specialist The youngest, most 
inexperienced barrister is 
comadered a specialist ad- 
vocate and is granted the right 
to plead in all the courts of the 
land, though he may never 
have set root in one: The 
solicitor who has spent 20 
years fighting cases day after 
day in the lower courts is 
denied that privilege. More- 
over, experts in tax, trusts, 
planning, or the many other 
esoteric fields of law are just as 
likely to be found among 
solicitors as barristers. 

Law is the only profession 
which accords the tide of 
specialist to someone who may 
have done nothing to deserve 
or adkieve it. If a divided legal 
profession is to continue — and 
it should — the separation 
should be along coherent and 
efficient lines and not, as at 
present, the result of hap- 
hazard historical growth. 

There is no logical or logis- 
tical reason why a common 


education and training for all 
lawyers should not be in- 
troduced — most of the sub- 
jects covered by the two 
branches are the same anyway 
— following which those law- 
yers who wished to specialise 
could do so. They could 
achieve the status of specialist 
either by examination or by 
acquiring the necessary experi- 
ence over a number of years. It 
may be that a new professional 
body would need to be estab- 
- lished to approve entry into 
the specialist branch. 

Changes in that direction 
would not be revolutionary 
and could be gradual. The 
broad organisation of solic- 
itors and barristers could be 
retained, and there is no 
reason to believe that the 
independence and integrity of 
lawyers would be com- 
promised. Above all, the 
change would be in the in- 
terests of the efficiency of the 
legal system and of the public 
using iL 

The two branches have set 
up a joint committee which 
also includes lay repre- 
sentatives to look into the 
future of the legal profession. 
Initial instict was to see the 
new body as a cosmetic ex- 
ercise, designed to dem- 
onstrate to the outside world 
that lawyers were anxious to 
put their own house in order 
and required no outside inter- 
vention. That may be too 
cynical a judgement If the 
solicitors and banisters on the 
committee were to regard 
themselves not just as stout 
defenders of their own 
profession's interests, but as 
genuine seekers after what is 
best in the public interest, the 
committee's proposals could 
form the baas for the nec- 
essary reforms. As the recent 
and sodden loss of the 
solicitors* conveyancing 
monopoly showed, there are 
always people willing to im- 
pose change on the profession 
if it does not take the initiative 
itself 


WILL BRITAIN MISS THE BUS AGAIN? 


The fen in ofi prices has halted, 
but the benefits have only just 
begun. On this the Organiza- 
tion for Economic Co-opera- 
tion and Development and the 
Chancellor of the Exchequer 
are in agreement — tafic of a 
downturn in economic activity 
is misplaced. Since they last 
reported six months ago* the 
economists at OECD have 
seen improvements in three 
areas; dollar oil prices have 
declined 40 percent; the dollar 
has fallen by a quarter from its 
overvalued heights; and in- 
terest rates have been coming 
down. 

The early effects have been 
almost entirely felt in lower 
inflation rates. In February 
and March, average consumer 
prices in the industrialized 
countries fell for the first time 
in 25 years. World inflation 
should settle at about 3 per 
cent Zero inflation, already 
achieved m Germany, is also 
exported in Japan, Switzerland 
and the Netherlands. 

But, as the Chancellor 
pointed out on Wednesday, 
the effects on output and 
employment will take a little 
longer. The pause in output 
growth, which has accompa- 
nied the collapse in oil prices, 
is an unfortunate coincidence 
confusing the picture. 


For - most. ' oil consuming 
countries, the oil price fell has 
resulted in the sharpest 
improvement in the terms of 
trade since the fifties. For 
Britain, an oil producing coun- 
try, changes in the price of 
exports and imports broadly 
cancel each other out Consid- 
erable benefits should none- 
theless occur because of lower 
inflat ion and improved world 
economic conditions. 

The world is emerging from 
the twin nightmares of over- 
valued oil and an overvalued 
dollar. Is there a danger, 
however, that the current 
favourable circumstances will 
distract attention from fun- 
damental problems? 

The United States, despite 
the dollar's fell, continues to 
suffer from a large trade 
deficit, which has its counter- 
part in surpluses elsewhere, 
notably Japan. Protectionist 
sentiment in Congress is there- 
fore likely to increase, particu- 
larly if the deficit widens this 
year.There are, broadly, two 
ways of removing this deficit. 
One is to push the dollar down 
further, notably against tire 
newly industrialized countries 
of the Far East A better 
solution is to achieve a more 
equal balance of growth be- 
tween the United States and 
the rest of the world. 


The OECD has no quarrel 
with the budgetary caution 
•adopted outside the United 
States. It certainly does not 
recommend Ametican-style 
budget deficits. But there is 
plenty of scope for other 
action, particularly in Europe. 

Europe has pressing un- 
employment problems and, 
even on the improved eco- 
nomic outlook, little short- 
term prospect of alleviating 
them. Labour markets need to 
be made to work more ef- 
ficiently, with complementary 
changes in policies on housing, 
taxation, regulation and cap- 
ital markets. Better economic 
conditions should be a spur to 
introduce such policy changes 
sooner rather than later. 

For Britain, more than any 
other member of the indus- 
trialized countries' club, this 
need is particularly great In 
every other country, growth in 
real labour costs has 
moderated. But the labour 
costs of each unit of Britain's 
output are rising by more than 
8 per cent a year — a pace 
which ensures a disastrous loss 
of competitiveness. If Britain's 
share in the improved world 
prospect turns out to be a 
minor one because of this, it 
will be a major national re- 
verse. 


FISHING IN TROUBLED WATERS 


Falklanders who have cam- 
paigned against overfishing by 
foreign ships in tiro waters 
around their islands might 
conclude that, the Argentine 
navy has done more tha n , their 
own to scare them off But tiro 
Argentine sinking of a Tai- 
wanese trawler, involving loss 
of life and injury, can hardly 
have advanced rts country's 
claims to be responsible 
custodians of the South At- 
lantic: 

Mr George Fouflces, the 
Labour Party’s spokesman on 
foreign affairs, yesteitiay 
blamed the incident upon Mrs 
Thatcher’s intransigence over 
sovereignty and argued that it 
should persuade the British 
Government to reach a settle- 
ment with Buenos Aires: That 
is surely a strained argument. 
The Foreign Office statement, 
which strongly deplored the 
Argentine action, was nearer 
the mark and must have 
c o ncealed some Quiet satisfac- 
tion hi Whitehall. If Buenos 
Aires wants to win friends and 
influence people, -it must 
recognise that . there are better 
ways than this. . 

With 100 fishing boats in the 


area last year— including those 
from Spain, South Korea and 
the Soviet Union — one must 
acknowledge that there is a real 
problem. A Foreign Office 
survey last November in- 
dicated that at least one of the 
region's main species, tiro blue 
whiting, was being seriously 
over-fished. Yet an exclusive 
fishing zone as demanded by 
the Falklanders would be ex- 
tremely difficult to police. 
Portsmouth is 8,000 miles 
away, and tiro Ministry of 
Defence anxious to reduce the 
British presence around the 
islands rather than expand it 
Argentina has responded to 
this vacuum by seizing Polish 
and Japanese fishing boats. It 
had given warning before this 
latest incident that it was 
about to take still tougher 
action against miscreants. The 
. sinking of the Taiwanese boat, 
deplorable though it is, might 
at least prod those responsible 
into moving more swiftly to- 
wards a fisheries agreement 
Britain, has .inoeed been 
trying to secure a multilateral 
Achin g agreement in the South 
. Atlantic under the- auspices of 
the Food and Agriculture 


Organization (FAO). Under 
such an agreement, tiro fishing 
fleets would effectively police 
themselves, particularly if 
neighbouring countries is 
South America, with their 
navies dose at hand, could be 
persuaded to join. Accord- 
ingly, the Foreign' Office last 
Autumn welcomed the recog- 
nition by Buenos Aires that tiro 
FAO has a part to play in 
finding a solution. 

Argentina's concern about 
overfishing arises from its 
claim to sovereignty over the 
jRafldands: Buenos Aires ar- 
gues that, if it were not for the 
150-mile protection zone 
around tiro islands, Argentine 
gunboats would be able to 
patrol the area more effec- 
tively. This latest action will 
therefore be seen ason attempt 
by Argentina to keep the issue, 
in people’s minds. 

If so, it went badly wrong. At 
a time when Argentina's gov- 
ernment is presenting itself as 
full of sense and sweet 
reasonableness, such precip- 
itate use of force can only 
remind eveiyo>ne of General 
Galtieri. 


LETTERS TO THE EDITOR 


Setting curbs on 
arms exports 

From the Director of Amnesty 
Internationa/ 

Sir, We read with interest your 
leader of May 14, advocating the 
control of arms exports. 

If safeguards in this country 
were effective, British military. 


training could not contribute to 
human rights violations in other 
countries. We would then not be 
confronted as we have been in tiro 
past by photographs ot, for exam- 
ple, British armoured cats used in 
internal security operations in 
countries such as Indonesia or 
South Africa, where widespread 
human rights abuses have been 
reported. 

A frightening array of military 
and police equipment is regularly 
exhibited to representatives from 
countries which include many 
where torture is routine and 
murder by government not infre- 
quent Which of them are actually 
buying the equipment and how are 
they using it? The answers remain 
hidden while HMG refuses to 
divulge the information needed 
for Parliament to exercise proper 
control over these exports. 

A new law is needed. It should 
provide for all military, security 
ami police exports to be pubtidy 
disclosed in advance, and for 
regular reports to be issued on the 
human rights situation in receiv- 
ing countries. 

The law should prohibit the 
transfer to other countries of 
military, security and police 
equipment and training, where 
these can reasonably be assumed

Students in USSR 

From Dr LA. Hughes 

Sir, Christopher Walker (report, 

smdteats' n wfto* S returned to the 
USSR last Saturday after tiro 
interr up tion of their studies in 
Kiev are “noted for strong left- 
wing sympathies'*. 

I cannot speak for the whole of 
the group, but I can confirm that 
the three students who returned 
from this university did so for the 
simple reason that they wish to 
improve their Russian and learn 
more about a country which they 
had studied fiom afar for several 
year*- Students of other European' 
lan giingpg generally take a period 
of study abroad ffr granted. 

. Might 1 add that m 12yearsof 
university traching I have found 
left-wing sympathies, even the 
mildest, to be one of the most 
infrequent motives for students 
taking degrees in Russian. Those 
who are alarmed by such ten- 
dencies should seek them else- 
where m om universities.

Cornish heritage 

From Mr R. F. Edward-CoBins 
Sir, Mr ScrpelTs letter (May 22) 
ignores the tacts about Cornwall's 
heritage and industry. Mining, 
which was based on copper, not 
tin, collapsed in the 19th century. 
Fishing is a seasonal occupation, 
while agriculture, through postwar 
mechanisation, lost 10,000 work- 
ers, half its labour force. Cornish 
tourism, firmly established at the 
turn of the century, doubled its 
labour force to 20,000 workers 
after the last war. 

Cornwall County Council's fig- 
ures for the gross value of our 
various industries in 1983 show 
£14m for fishing, £35m for min- 
ing, £2 30m for an over-priced 
agriculture and £250ro for a highly 
competitive tourist industry. 
Yours faithfully, 

R. F. EDWARD-COLLINS,

Paper chase 

From the Chief Executive of the 
Direct Mail Services Standards 
Board 

Sir, It would indeed appear that 
Mr Kinnock stands in need of a 
new direct mail copywriter. But I 
confess I am at a loss to under- 
stand Mr Talbot's outburst of 
spleen in your columns (May 20). 

Direct mail advertising is no 
more "junk” than advertising in 
newspapers, on television, radio, 
posters or cinema screens. If one 
objects (as does, ironically; a 
substantial segment of Mr 
Kinnock's party) to co m merc ia l 
advertising as a matter of prin- 
ciple, that is one tiring. But to 
single out a particular advertising 
medium for abase is childish. 

As for Mr Talbot's indignation 
that anyone should dare to tell Mr 
KinnockthatheshopsatTesco, or 
once bowlUL a three-piece suite 
fiom the Times Furnishing Com- 
pany or whatever — what on earth 
is he on about? ft. is not self- 
evident that information of this 
kind is, or needs to be, confiden- 
tial, and it is at least arguable that 
it “belongs" as much to Tesco or 
Times Furnishing as it does to Mr 
Talbot And in any case, who is 

hurt, and why all tiro fuss?

World conscience and the big ran 


From Mr Phillip Oppertham. MP 
for Amber Valley (Conservative) 
Sir, The Indian subcontinent has a 
population of around a billion 
which it not only feeds, but also 
produces a surplus, some of which 
has been sent as food aid to Africa. 
Africa, with a population half that 
of India and something like six 
times the land mass, cries out for 
more Western aid to feed its 
starving. 

So what is the difference? It is 
certainly not climatic, for India is 
generally more arid than Africa. It 
is, as Professor Ayiitey said in his 
excellent article (May 27), gov- 
ernmental. 

India has long encouraged its 
peasants to fulfill their food 
producing role by offering stable, 
guaranteed prices. Conversely, 
many African regimes have made 
an enemy of the peasant, fre- 
quently forcing him to sell his 
produce at low costs to inefficient 
State marketing boards. This may 
have appeased the urban classes 
and paid for over-ambitious 
industrial projects, but it hasn't 
been very good for food produc- 
tion. 

Even where agriculture has 
merited attention, this has tended 
to be in the form of grandiose and 
mismanaged prestige projects. Or 
worse, land has been confiscated 
and the “kulaks” have been forced 
on to collective farms, Soviet style 
— and with similar consequences. 

Set against this background, last 
Sunday’s events may ease a few 
consciences and will undoubtedly 
save some lives in the short term. 
But in the longer term, Africa’s 
salvation lies exactly where it has 
done for the past 20 years — in its 
rulers. 

Yours faithfully, 

PHILUP OFPENHEIM, 

House of Commons,

From the Reverend Michael New- 
man 

Sir, In the wake of the impressive 
Sport Aid appeal for the Third 
World children, and the wonder- 
ful response to it by young people, 
it is important to look at some of. 

Chernobyl disaster 

From Professor J. H. Edwards 
Sr, Your correspondence col- 
umns seem to me to reveal a 
widespread confusion between the 
effects of small and large doses of 
radiation and provide a habitat for 
both wild assertions and un- 
necessary anxieties. 

Even a single atomic event can 
damage a small part of a single cell 
which may ultimately lead to a 
cancer years later or may disable 
.one or more descendants. Any 
small dose leads to an additional 
risk which is proportional to dose; 
such effects can be predicted but 
notobserved. 

. Large doses cause cell death, 
especially of rapidly dividing cells, 
including those of the brain before 
birth and cells which line the gut 
or patrol the Wood after birth. 
Such damage is only produced by 
doses several hundredfold our 
annual dose from natural sources. 

It is dear that there has been no 
high-dose exposure from 
Chernobyl outside the USSR, and 
the Director of the National 
Radiological Protection Board, for 
.from being criticised for lack of 
appreciation of a. report. of the 
International Commission on 
Radiological Protection, referred 
to in these columns as “the bible” 
(Mr B. R. Hookway, May 14) 
should be congratulated for hav- 
ing put this accident into local 
perspective by advising campers 
in the mountains of Wales or 
Scotland not to drink rainwater 
unless unduly thirsty. This is not 

Professional status 

From Mr R. J. Firth 
Sir, Your report on Mr Justice 
Scott's verdict (May 24) in which 
he “said that teachers were pro- 
fessionals with professional 
obligations which included obey- 
ing requests to cover for absent 
colleagues” prompts one to ask 
what the criteria of a “profession" 
are. 

Teachers are being asked to 
fulfil the obligations of pro- 
fessionals but I doubt if they have 
the control of the nature and 
conditions of their work that other 
professionals enjoy. 

Costa del solecism 

From Mr Ian M. Leslie 
Sir, You alluded recently (report. 
May 15) to King Juan Carlos's 
speech to the European Par- 
liament as “setting the seal on 
Spain’s accession to the EEC". I 
can report that our village of 
Tintagel has made its own gesture 
of welcome in the shape of a sign 
“Beer Patio” displayed by a local 
hotel 

Yours sincerely,

For ‘them’ read his’? 

From Mr Neil A Fisk 
Sir, How about bringing The 
Times another small step towards 
the 21st century, ahead of all your 
competitors? I suggest a change of 
style for reported speech. 

Under “Parliament”, subhead 
“Redundancies”, on May 22 you 
reported one of Mr Hud 
Channon’s opening sentences as 
follows: “He said the crisis in the 
shipbuilding industry had been 
with them since the mid-1970s.” 
This was perfect reported speech 
as taught to me at grammar school 
about 62 years ago. But in “them” 
Mr Channon was not referring 
specifically to his colleagues in the 
Government. 

Neither was he alluding to the 
whole Conservative' Party nor to 


the dangers that face sections of 
our own UK children with equal 
inevitability. Though they do not 
face famine an increasing number 
of them face a bitter home life of 
acrimony and separation, plus the 
destructive effects of unemploy- 
ment, crime, drugs and alcohol 

In the Third World medical 
science and public awareness are 
gradually improving the lives of 
the young. In the UK the lot of 
children declines in the accelerat- 
ing division between the advan- 
taged and the disadvantaged. 

Sport Aid concluded their ap- 
peal by slating that, whatever they 
had accomplished voluntarily, if it 
were not corroborated politically 
in Third World countries and in 
the West, then their efforts would 
largely be wasted. Their senti- 
ments mirror my own as I see the 
lack of political will in this country 
to eradicate the poverty trap 
which pins down so many power- 
less families. 

Are we to continue to limp 
towards a society in which a 
growing number of children will 
foil to thrive? Perhaps our own 
children need a Bob Geldof too, 
but as Prime Minister.

From Mr Miles Hudson 
Sir, Am 1 alone in worrying about 
the ethics of harnessing such 
massive good will to a project 
which may help the donors in a 
variety of ways, but which will 
probably do more harm than good 
to the recipients? 

There is much talk of a new UN 
initiative. If the UN is to take 
action, surely it should try to insist 
that politicians in Africa learn a 
few basic economic lessons and 
apply them?

inconsistent with his expectation 
of tens of cases of cancer. 

The number of cancers is based 
on data so far limited to two small 
bombs, a few accidents, some side- 
effects of therapy and observa- 
tions on mice. Tens of cases of 
cancer, and similar numbers of 
inherited disorders within the next 
few centuries, are consistent with 
what little is known. 

Children conceived before the 
accident cannot, themselves, be at 
increased risk of inherited disease, 
or, with such low doses, of 
congenital malformations or small 
brains. 

* Fortunately, while knowledge is 
so limited the USSR is well 
equipped to evaluate the genetic 
effects of Chernobyl through a 
structured organisation m medical 
genetics. 

Communication of risk is also 
confounded by many units 
measuring radiation and a recent 
change in nomenclature. 

It would be helpful to define a 
unit of annual background expo- 
sure. in terms of round numbers of 
standard units (such as one 
millisi evert per year), so that 
reports retain some footing in the 
vernacular. In the last century the 
problem of describing energy in 
rough but meaningful terms was 
resolved by defining “horse- 
power".

The judge's phrase “obeying 
requests” nicely exposes the wide-

teachers’ position. Either teachers 
respond as professionals to re-

derides their status, but bow they 
are treated is equally important- i

Vicarage stakes 

From the Rev W. H. V. Elliott 
Sir, The Vicar of Exning may be 
correct in believing his church to 
be the first to have its own

haps however the parish of St

wished us to understand by that, 
every British citizen — us. 

Could you not alter the style for 
reported speech to this extent, and 
in a similar context print “He said 
the crisis . . . had been with us 
since the mid-1970s.”? 1 believe 
you would be supported in that by 
the great majority of the teachers 
of English in secondary schools 
and universities today. I challenge 
you to ask them!

MAY 30 1849 


The Supply Estimates have often 
provided material for a leading 
article in The Times and ge nerally 
it would be of an admonitory 
nature. It was a pleasurable 
surprise to find the one below 
dealing with a portentous subject 
in such a light-hearted fashion. 


[BUCKINGHAM 

PALACE 

COSTS] 

We have just received Sir 
CHARLES WOOD’S “tittle 
account'* for the Civil Service 
1849-50. Bilk are never pleasant 
things. Weekly bills are bad 
enough; monthly bills still worse; 
hot nnmm] bills must always 
remain purely detestable. It seems 
to savour of extortion when we are 
compelled to part with capital fora 
past consideration — clothes that 
have been worn, for example; wine 
that has been drunk: horses whose 
knees we have broken long since. 
The CHANCELLOR of the 
EXCHEQUER’S MB is partly Off 
this nature, and partly it is a cl aim 
for routine services of a very useful, 
but most prosaic ^description, to be 
performed within the course of the 
current twelve months. 

The sum total of the account is 
just 3.025,7311^ . . . 

We wish by any ingenuity we 
could squeeze into the space to 
which we are necessarily confined a 
general idea of the items spread 
over nnw ample Parliamentary 
papers. We can but give a few 
specimens, taken at ra nd om, and 
recommend the documents to our 
readers as pleasant reading for a 
summer’s day. There are half-a- 
dozen facts in every page that 
would prove provocative of discus- 
sion. We t ake the first head of 
Public Buildings. Buckingham 
Palace this year is to cost us 
14,522/1.; for the new Houses of 
Parliament 109,900/. is set down 
(in 1847 there was paid under this 
head 150,000/.; in 1848, 120,0004) 
The Harbours of Refuge are deb- 
ited with 141,5001; in 1847, with 
140,0001; in 184a with 131,000/. 
The Palm-house at Kew is fortu- 
nately completed. For the deans- 
ing of drains, and for the 
protection of Windsor Castle from 
fire, we are charged with 10,0004 It 
is stated that “the only supply of 
water at present is that contained 
in the iron cisterns on the roofs of 
the Castle, which supply is at 
present not only very limited in 
quantity, but is totally unavailable 
during frost” What all the thou- 
sands expended on Windsor Castle 
can have been applied for when so 
essential a requisite was unprovid- 
ed we are not Informed. The total 
cost of the works at Buckingham 
Palace, “including” — this comes 
with lie fall twang of an architect's 
bill— “new east front to the Palace, 
cleaning out and re-arranging 
rooms in south wing, alterations in 
the north wing; new kitchens and 
other offices, with ball-room over, 
decorations and painting, taking 
down the marble arch, alterations 
of drains &C-," is to cost 150,0001, 
as per estimate. Of this sum 
100,0001. has already been paid; 
50,0001 remains. This year it is 
proposed to pay 14.200L The 
National Gallery figures for the 
very modest sum of 5051. Mainte- 
nance of Royal Pavilion at Brigh- 
ton, ti& brought to sale. 2001 — 
moderate enough. The supply of 
water to the fountains at Trafalgar 
Square, 4981.; this, on the contrary, 
considering the service performed, 
strikes us as most exorbitant Why 
pay ever so little to create a 
deformity? Although the charge is 
included in Paper IV, we trill here, 
for the public satisfaction, record 
the fact that we find a debit of 
2,8001 “for completing and fixing 
in their respective panels four 
ALTI-RELIEV1, now in progress, 
for the decoration of the pedestal of 
the column in Trafalgar square to 
the memory of Lord NELSON.” 
We greatly fear the credit is 
premature... 

The British Ambassador’s house 
at Constantinople is to be rebuilt, 
and we are to pay for it 12,0001. We 
are very happy to conclude our 
extracts fay adding that the British 
nation is to subscribe 69£ 15s. "for 
a gold chronometer, presented to 
Captain LISBOA, of the Brazilian 
steam-frigate Alfonso, in testimo- 
ny of his humane ami praiseworthy 
exertions in rescuing British Sub- 
jects from the burning wreck of the 
emigrant-fillip Ocean Monarch.” 
We only trust the best chronome- 
ter that money could purchase has 
been presented to Captain 
LISBOA. 

Our purpose in wmViwp these 
rambling extracts will have been 
answered if we can induce others to 
take up these papers and read for 
themselves. One man knows of an 
abuse here, and another of another 
there. It is only by combining our 
knowledge we can hope to grapple 
to any purpose, with such a vast 
assemblage 'of facta. Meanwhile we 
can give a very strong assurance 
that the “papers” will be found foil 
of interest and amusement — if of 
nothing rise. 


A vintage ran 

From Mr Peter Minchinton 
Sir, I may have the solution for 16 
Christopher Riley's supermarket 
trolley dilemma (May 23). 

I suggest a large (E20) packet of 
washing powder placed at the 
front of the trolley. Not only will 
this move the centre of gravity 
forward, it places more weight 
over the from wheels and there- 
fore gives greater directional 
stability. This should enable him 
to make runs of 20 yards or more, 
even at peak shopping hours. 

Yours faithfully.

OBITUARY 

PROF IFOR AUSTIN 
Experimental research 
in solid state physics 


Professor Ifor Austin, pro- 
fessor of physics » the Urn- 
versity of Sheffield, has died 
after a short illness. He was ST* 
He graduated from Christs 
College, Cambridge, in .1949 
and, after a period of na tion al 
service in the RAF and a two- 

year appointment in the phys- 
ics department of Guy’s 
Hospital Medical School 
joined tbe staff of the GEC 
Research Laboratories. 

There, his lifetonK interest 
in semiconductors and 
speciorscopy developed. In 
1960 he went as a senior 
research fdlowtotheNarioiial 
Physical Laboratory where he 
extended his sen n c o ndactor 
studies to ultra high pr es su re s. 

From 1962 until- his death 
he was a member of the 
Sheffield Uoiversity Physks 
Department, being elected to a 
personal chair in 1981. 

Austin was an experimental 
physicist with an abifity to 
i den tify important new prob- 
lems and materials in solid 
state physics. _ 

His interest in atomic disor- 
der and the breakdown of tong 
range order is evident even in 
his postgraduate thesis, and 
was to become the doimnant 
theme of his later work. . 

He was also concerned wfch 
the applications of physics, as 
shown m his strobes of the' 
thermoelectric .properties of 
semiconductors during his 
formative period at GEC, ami 
in .his e nduring , interest in 
medical physics:

properties of transition metal

THE TIMES FRIDAY MAY 30 1986 


15 23 


THE ARTS 


Television 

For all who saw TradtsmnOes 
The Hardest Trade in the 

World the sight of a fall ri 
IStb-ceniury merchant ship 
dipping through the tropics 
wQl. no longer insp i re pare 
feelings of tnuMpdlity and 
yenramg Cor more romantic 
days. 

Until the 1920s, . 
ships left the ports of 
Wales loaded with coal for the 
steam ships of Sooth 
America's west coast They 
crossed the Adamic between 
dismal landfalls In Azores 
and the Falkland Islands, then 
made a perilous journey 
around Cape Horn to arrive at 
the Fernrian port of CaHao. 
The return cargo of 


as fertilizer, was so profitable 

that one ship-owning family nf 
Methodists ia Menai built a 
succession of mansions over- 
- looking the Straits and died 

H flltaamirwc, 

Very few photographs or 
films exist to bear witness to 
the grim shuttle; instead, less 
dramatic do cuments s®M the 
story. The Lloyds list attested 
to the suumal loss of over 1,000 
ships; a captain's log detailed 
a nightmare crossing in which 
the cargo of coal ought fire 
and die rodder split; in Callao, 
seamen deserted en masse and 
captains paid a boanty of $30 a 
head for replacement sailors 
who were kbbuqpl nr the 
port’s bars ami brotfrels- 

One of the most impressive 
records of the dangers of the 
voyage, was a simple map upon 
which one captain's couse 
round the Cape was plotted. 
His chronometer was faulty, 
and in consequence he sailed 
nmnd in circles for 99 days. 

The programme provided 
the background to Britain's 
colonization of the Falkland 
Islands, and to the British 
influence in the port of Callao 
where a tiny expatriot commu- 
nity still exists. The Peruvians 
were described as savage op- 
pressors who i mp orted slave 
labour from China to dig the 
guano off the rocky islands 
where it was deposited by sea 
birds. 

The trade finally ended 
when overfishing off the Pe- 
nman coast wrecked the eco- 
I balance of the area and 
the sea-bird popula- 
tion from .20 milt™ to 2 
mill ion in 15 years. It was n 
sobering history related with 
so modi flair mat these hard 
facts were softened in the 
telling.

In an industry which feeds on 
talent, the single talent that 
money seemingly cannot buy 
is good writing.- . Millions of 
dollars are regularly spent on 
films which founder because 
they are not established on 
adequate screenplays. 

The individual writer of 
natural genius for this distinc- 
tive branch of the art is rare 
enough to be spotted at once. 
Such a one, it is safe to predict 
even from his first script, is 
Joseph Minion. Minion is 
now 26 and wrote After Hoars 
when he was still a student at 
Columbia University Film 
School. One of his tutors was 
the Yugoslav director Dusan 
Mafcavejev who says that 
from, the first Minion revealed 
mi extraordinary capacity for 
story-telling. . Makavejev 
pushed him to develop, the 
idea of-4/fer.lfam.;and:foe 
script Which reached the 
screen seems to have been 
finished in a matter of days. 

It tackles the hardest of 
genres, comedy: The structure 
is faultless, a progressive esca- 
lation from a single comic 
premise, railm mating in a 
swift and satisfying finale. 
Along the way it abounds ia 
quirky ideas, strange arresting 


characters and witty dialogue, 
yet with everything firmly 
rooted in real life. 

Admiration for Minion's 
script should not minimize 
Scorsese's contribution or the 
personal relevance of After 
Hours to the body of the 
director’s work. Tins is the 
' same rathndlmg, terrifying 
New York of Mean Streets 
and Taxi Driver, but now seen 
through the glass of comedy. 

Griffin Dunne plays a 
young Yuppie computer oper- 
ator, lured one night by the 
promise of a date with a 
strange girl (for stranger than 
he ever anticipates) from the 
safe familiarity of his own part 
of town into the unknown 
wildernesses of SoHo. 

From the moment that his 
one and only $20 bill blows 
away, leaving him ten cents 
short ofhis subway fore home, 
be is at the mercy of the city. 
Disasters pile upon him. He is 
caught up in a suicide and a 
murder, dashes with belliger- 
ent taxi drivers and subway 
men and a variety of late-night 
psychopaths looking for fights 
or for love. He narrowly 
escapes being scalped in a 
punk dob mid lynched by- 
vigilantes who think he is a 
burglar. 

Scorsese, Minion and Grif- 
fin Dunne (who also pro- 
duces) make everything in 
their comedy of urban para- 
noia seem perfectly, horridly 


normal. The special quality of 
After Hours is that the film 
makers avoid, the obvious 
temptation for comic frenzy. 

Poets are not necessarily 
natural screenwriters. During 
the Second World War, Dylan 
Thomas worked as a writer on 
documentaries, and in the late 
Forties tried to earn money 
from feature films. After his 
death his screenplay for The 
Doctor and the Devils was 
published by its intended 
producer, John Taylor, and in 
the years between there have 
been abortive efforts to film it 

The obstacles to its produc- 
tion were probably that 
though finely written it was 
not a very effective screen- 
play. The descriptions are 
vivid but not always quite 
practical; the dialogue is excel- 
lent but excessive: Thomas 
had not caught on to the 
notion of how few words are 
neressary on the screen to get 
an idea across. In any case, the 
ideas that Taylor and Thomas 
pursued in retelling the story 
of Burke and Hare, the mur- 
derers who supplied the cele- 
brated Edinburgh anatomist 
Dr Knox with human speci- 
mens, were not very far- 
reaching: the principle of ends 
justifying means, and the so- 
cial contrasts of academia and 
slum squalor. 

While pruning the script, 
Ronald Harwood’s adaptation 
turns it into a rather common 


thing, introducing the conven- 
tional plot mechanisms of old 
Hammer honor films. Fred- 
die Francis, a Hammer alum- 
nus, has endeavoured to give 
it style by casting good players 
(Timothy Dalton as the Doc- 
tor. Jonathan Pryce, Stephen 
Rea, Twiggy et at.) and giving 
his production designer Gus- 
tave Dong's London to study. 
(For some reason the action 
has been shifted from Edin- 
burgh in 1828 to London, 
1840.) Dote, though, was in 
black and white: in colour the 
squalor recreated on the 
Sheppenon stages is only 
lurid. 

Exactly fifty yean ago. Tu- 
dor Rose — directed by the 
recently dead Robert Steven- 
son - told the story of the 
nine-day reign of Lady Jane 
Grey with a good deaf more 
economy than the new ver- 
sion, Lady Jane, directed by 
Trevor Nunn from a script by 
David Edgar. Except in its 
length, the film looks back to a 
venerable tradition of British 
costume pictures winch in 
itself might well have derived 
from Victorian historical 
painting. It is studiously re- 
searched, beautifully dressed, 
intelligently acted, pictur- 
esquely photographed in au- 
thentic period locations. The 
political machinations which 
caused the ill-fated grand- 
daughter of Henry VIII to 
usurp his' daughter Mary Tu- 


dor are lucidly laid out As 
cinema it is rather lifeless. 

The oddity of the script is to 
make Lady Jane (Helena 
Bonharo-Caner) and her hus- 
band Guilford Dudley (Cary 
Elwes) 20th-century-style lib- 
erals who identify with the 
social revolt and endeavour to 
turn their nine days into a 
communist revolution. This 
requires a particularly star- 
tling transformation in the 
dissolute young Dudley. But 
then, most of the characters 
an and talk like people from 
present-day Kensington, apart 
from their eating habits. 

In films like The French 
Connection and Cruising, Wil- 
liam Friedkin explores the 
nastier sides of urban life in 
highly polished, violent melo- 
dramas. To live and Die in 
L.A. deals with an aspect of 
crime unusual in films — 
forgery — with die sinister 
William Dafoe as a high- 
powered counterfeiter and 
William L. Peterson as a chill- 
ingly ruthless secret service 
man. Wim Wenders's photog- 
rapher, Robby Muller, records 
the exotic landscapes and 
scummmy backwaters of Los 
Angeles. It is fast-moving and 
unpleasant, and the thesis of 
the script, by Friedkin and 
Gerald Petievich, is not origi- 
nal: the essential kinship of 
criminal and cop.

If artistic inspiration were an 
infection one could catch by 
immersing oneself in the cre- 
ativity of others, Richard 
Rodney Bennett's new piece. 
Dream Dancing, could hardly 
fail. He has now written no 
fewer than five works based 
on Debussy’s Syrinx: quite an 
achievement, considering how 
.few. notes Debussy himself 
wrote in dm miracle of 
condensation. 

The orchestration of this 16- 
minute, bi-partite piece is also 
based on Debussy: the instru- 
ments being grouped accord- 
ing to the Frenchman's 
unrealised plan for a series of 
sonatas. As for the second 


movement’s - tarantella' 
rhythms, Bennett tells us that 
this is derived from Debussy's 
piano work, Masques. 

Then there are the literary 
stimuli: Dylan Thomas for the 
fim.movement, Keats for the 
second. Finally, Bennett notes 
that both Jerome Kern and 
Cole Farter wrote so ugsxalled 
“Dream Dancing”, just in case 
anyone was worried that he 
had stumbled on a daringly 
original title. . 

Unfortunately music, like a 
racehorse, must be judged not 
on hs breeding but on bow it 
runs. Dream Dancing runs 
rather staidly: even its molto 
vivo movement reverts to the 
winding, elegiac vein of melo- 
dy — usually over a regular 
thread of polite, inter-war 
harmonies — which had domi- 
nated its first part. 

As usual with Bennett, how- 
ever, one could always get 
interested in the sophisticated 


instrumental colouring: main- 
ly' pastel-shaded, : bat -with 
some spikier writing -for 
harpsichord. 

Elsewhere in this pro- 
gramme (the second of two 
London Sinfonietta concerts 
celebrating Bennett’s fiftieth 
birthday) were Villa-Lobos’s 
Bachianas Brasileiras Nos 1 
and S, occasionally un-tune- 
fully managed by the eight 
cellos, but notable for a sensu- 
ous alliance between the so- 
prano Felicity Lott and the 
solo cellist, Alexander BaiQie. 

The concert also included 
the London premiere of 
Falla's El conegidor y la 
molinera, the original version 
of The Three-Cornered Hat. 
David Atherton conducted 
this pungent, pantomime mu- 
sic, full of irreverent Beetho- 
ven allusions, with con- 
siderable verve.

Mutual confidence and control 


RPO/Temirkanov 

Festival Hall 

The improvement in the stan- 
dard of the Royal Philhar- 
monic Orchestra's playing 
over the past couple of seasons 
has been spectacular, even 
though their programmes do 
still err on the side of commer- 
cial caution. 

Much of the credit for that, I 
would guess, is due to the 
efforts of its principal guest 
conductor, Yuri Temirkanov. 
Clearly he loves conducting 
them, and clearly the feeling is 
mutual As if to emphasize the 
point, the orchestra's perfor- 
mance of Weber’s 
Obmvioverture last night 
really sparkled. 

At once — and for once — it 


was obvious that the strings 
could play this notoriously 
tricky score with complete 
confidence, and with not a 
hint of scratchiness or way- 
ward tuning, either. The winds 
were equally alert, providing a 
wealth of crisp rhythmic de- 
tail. And the delightfully crude 
entry of the horns near the end 
of the piece epitomized the 
ebullient spirit abroad. 

But Beriioz’s Symphonic 
faniastique demands far more 
than mere virtuosity if it is to 
succeed. Here Temirkanov 
kept the first movement im- 
pressively under control so 
that it really did sound some- 
thing like a balanced sonata 
structure, while the ball scene 
had about it exactly the right 
mixture of elegance and antic- 
ipatory excitement. 

Then came the “Sc£ne aux 


champs", given plenty of 
space, with the cor angiais and 
echoing oboe solos creating 
between them a haunting at- 
mosphere; it lacked only the 
final measure of tension. That 
arrived soon enough in the 
“March to the Scaffold", and 
the final “Dream of a Witches’ 
Sabbath", however, where 
Temirkanov besides unleash- 
ing awesome power, made 
sure that his orchestra missed 
none of the finer detail 
Between the Berlioz and the 
Weber, Sir Yehudi Menuhin 
gave the two Beethoven Vio- 
lin Romances and Cfaausson's 
Poeme. My thoughts on his 
playing have not changed 
since last month; but there is 
no need to repeat them.

Opera 

Designed 

reality 

Simon Boccanegra 

Glyndeboume 


Simon Boccanegra is scarcely 
the most obvious opera with 
which to begin a Verdi cycle, 
least of all at Glyndeboume: 
next year's promised La 
iraviata looks a much more 
immediate choice. 

It is not just that the work is 
dramatically complicated and 
hard to bring into focus, nor 
that it inhabits an uncomfort- 
able space with corners touch- 
ing Rigoletto as well as the 
further shore of Oteiio. The 
more serious difficulty is sim- 
ply one of scale. The grand 
climaxes, unstinted in Ber- 
nard Haitink’s marvellous ac- 
count of the score, presume a 
grand space: in a small theatre 
they risk seeming excessive. 

There appeared no reason 
for these people to behave so 
largely, and if Robert Uoyd, 
for one, stays any doubts in his 
performance as Fiesco, be 
does so by refusing to be 
bound by intimacy and in- 
stead manifesting as superb a 
figure of tragic, heroic nobility 
as he might in a much largo- 
house. 

Such magnificence of de- 
meanour creates its own gen- 
erous scope, but it is not 
possible for the real surround- 
ings always to be so blissfully 
ignored. There are points 
where the very timing of the 
opera implies action across a 
wide stage: in the council 
chamber scene, for instance, 
the assembly’s delayed recog- 
nition of Amelia becomes 
almost risible when nobody is 
more than a few feet from her. 

Then again, a certain am- 
pleness is practically required 
of the settings and it is an 
ampleness that Glyndeboume 
just cannot accommodate. 

John Gunter's designs tack- 
le this problem boldly and 
bravely. His general solution 
is to restrict the eye's aware- 
ness of the narrowness of the 
stage by directing attention 
always to the back, or else by 
having everything played in 
near darkness. 

The prologue, done entirely 
behind a gauze curtain, is a 
sombre invention in tones of 
sepia and sea-green; the last 
act is similarly dark, and the 
sense of a Mediterranean wa- 
terfront is well suggested by 
the dimming vista of a head- 
land across water. 

But the trick does not 
always work. The scene at the 
Grimaldi Palace again has a 
centra] seascape to draw the 
eye, but one can hardly fail to 
notice that people have to 
enter and exit from the sides, 
however blankly painted these 
are. And though the council 
chamber is powerfully domi- 
nated by the doge's golden 
galleon throne and the map 
behind, the absence of design 
elsewhere suggests something 
makeshift, without the contra- 
riety of striking emblems and 
empty surroundings being 
made dramatically pointful in 
the production. 

It would not, of course, be in 
Sir Peter Hall’s style to work 
with such ironies. He handles 
the situations, however bi- 
zarre, as if they concern real 
people, and in doing so he 
shows why this opera is, after 
all, an apt choice for 
Glyndeboume. 

Quite straightforwardly, it is 
full of duologues, full of 


i.V< 

r-M 

* 



occasions where two people 
are exposed to each other — . as 
parent and child, as lovers, as 
enemies as conspirators —by 
what they think. 

As one might have expect- 
ed, Sir Peter's treatment of the 
chorus is to individualize 
them, but in some respects 
this is the least happy aspect of 
his production. In the finale, 
for instance, the expressions 
of general lamentation are a 
little ostentatious, with a child 
turned away from the sight of 
death, a hapless woman stum- 
bling down steps, and people 
inching forward in dumb 
amazement. 

Much more productive are 
those many scenes, particular- 
ly between Boccanegra and 
Amelia, where a hand gesture, 
a look or a well-timed exit can 
compete with Mr Lloyd's 
rampaging grandeur. Then ‘SY- 
mon Boccanegra begins to 
have the appearance of cham- 
ber opera. 

It begins to sound like 
chamber opera, too, in the 
central performance by Timo- 
thy Noble: This is a doge who 
dominate not so much by 
force of personality as by a 
benign abdication: one is not 
surprised that Mr Noble 
should have played Prospero 
in John Eaton's The Tempest 
at Santa Fe last year. 

His British debut reveals a 
very secure, amiable vocal and 
dramatic personality, but one 
is bound to wonder how Well 
his security and amiability 
might survive in a larger 
theatre: there were moments 
when his voice was coveiedby 
the orchestra, and of course it 
is not difficult to silence a 
fractious council from a raised 
position on a tiny stage. 
Nevertheless, Mr Noble’s 
qualities oflyrical warmth and 
avuncular experience offered 
consistent pleasure. 

Carol Vaness, once she had 
mastered some chestiness in 
the low regfater, provided a 
highly proficient Amelia, sing- 
ing with rounded tones and 
perfect, unforced phrasing. 
She seemed to have no prob- 
lem at all with the part, and 
her sure delivery of the vocal 
goods caused one to forget 
that the character is hardly 
Verdi’s most vivid, 

Tibfire Raffalli also has to 
deal with a colourless role as 
Gabriele Adorno, and if his 
performance was less unassail- 
able than Miss Vaness's, it was 
stylish and clear. 

John Rawnsley sings and 
acts an incisively-stamped vil- 
lain; Robert Uoyd is, as I have 
suggested, a glory on bis own, 
and the LPO under Bernard 
Haitink gives one another 
reason for bearing Boccanegra 
at Glyndeboume: as a festival 
of silvery woodwind and po- 
tent lower-string lines among 
the clamour.

The Nest 

Bush 


Franz Xaver Kxoetz is one of 
the few living playwrights who 
can present working class 
characters without patronage 
or literary distortion, and The 
Nest (the Bush’s fourth Kroetz 
production) is a fine example 
of his power to evoke the 
extremes of human feeling by 
recording things exactly as 
they are. 

Kurt is making a fair living 
as a lorry driver, and when his 
wife announces her pregnancy 
he is happy to sit through her 
catalogue of maternity re- 
quirements from an electric 
bottle- warmer to “mother-to- 
be cream" and agree to buy 
the lot 

Young Stefan arrives, and 
the couple wheel him into 
their garden and take him on 
picnics, confident of their 
future together even tho 
overtime earnings are not 
quite what they used to be. 
Then an overtime job does 
crop up, and Kurt drives six 
barrels of waste round to the 
picnic spot and tips them into 
the river. When foe unsuspect- 
ing Martha next goes bathing, 
she lifts a mortally ill child out 
of foe water. 

In Sarah Pia Anderson’s 
production the whole action 
takes place behind a wrap- 
round gauze. The effect of this 
design (by Roger Glossop) is 
to lend Kroetz’s highly cir- 
cumstantial realism the ab- 
stract formality of Beckett, 
and to achieve the shadowy 
recesses of a large stage at 
point-blank range. 

Space is defined with mini- 
mal props: a single table, two 
bicycles; and when the guttt- 
stricken Kurt immerses him- 
self in ' the poisoned water, 
lighting alone conveys the foil 


Theatre 

sense of a body swaying on the 
river-bed. 

The setting, coupled with 
Mike Figgis’s erratically pul- 
sating music, also intensifies 
foe power of the writing. 
Kroetz’s characters are condi- 
tioned to banal actions and 
banal speech. Paradoxically, 
foe effect of distancing them is 
to bring them closer and to 
intensify the connections. 

The translation is by 
Kaiharina Helm, and it ranks 
with her version of Stallerhof 


(which launched Kroetz at the 
Bush in 1974) in packing 
explosive emotions into foe 
most habitually stunted 
speech habits. 

Veronica Robots and Dan- 
iel Webb project to foe full foe 
sense of people trying to 
express violent personal expe- 
rience through second-hand 
phrases; and the panic and 
exhilaration of connecting 
their little world to life outside 
the nest.

Spy chiefs meet 
in secret to 
revive the KGB 

From Christopher Walker, Moscow 


Winged salute to airfield’s history 




A sweeping review of the 
activities of the KGB took 
place during a secret two-day 
conference, attended by Mr 
Gorbachov, at an undisclosed 
venue here earlier this weds. 

Brief reports of the staging 
of the conference of leaders of 
the shadowy organization, be- 
lieved to embrace about 
700,000 agents, were given 
prominence in yesterday's of- 
ficial press. But tittle was 
released about the content of 
the unprecedented meeting. 

The ranks of the KGB nave 
escaped many of the purges 
conducted elsewhere m the 
Soviet bureaucracy since Mr 
Gorbachov came to power in 
March 5985 and Western 
diplomatic sources said it was 
believed that the conference 
contained calls for more 
streamlining and efficiency. 

Among those who ad- 
dressed what one diplomat 
described as “probably the 
largest single gathering of the 
beads of the Soviet Union's 
secret community" was Mr 
Viktor Chebrikov, chief of the 
KGB and a full member of the 
Politburo. 

A close ally of Mr 
Gorbachov and one of those 
who helped him to power, he 
hinted at shortcomings within 
the organization when he 
addressed the watershed 27th 
congress of the Communist 
Party earlier this year. He said 
then that more work was 
needed to ensure that all KGB 
members were politically 


steadfast, principled, truthful 
and self-criticaL 

Far from diminishing under 
Mr Gorbachov, the internal 
grip exercised by the KGB 
appears to have expanded, 
although in keeping with the 
modernization of the Com- 
munist state, its operatives 
attempt to demonstrate a tittle 
more subtlety than in the past 

A former KGB official was 
recently appointed to take 
overall control of Soviet radio 
and television. 

The brief Tass report of the 
previously secret gathering 
stated baldly that the confer- 
ence “defined measures fur- 
ther to improve the activities 
of the KGB agencies and 
forces". It also said that the 
meeting in Moscow had, been 
convened to assess decisions 
taken at the party congress, 
where Mr Chebrikov made a 
significant speech. 

He gave a warning of efforts 
of the Western intelligence 
services to subvert the state by 
seeking out “social misfits" 
and trying to suborn officials 
into giving away state secrets. 
“They are straining after our 
political, military, economic 
and scientific secrets," he said. 

Western intelligence ex- 
perts, who were intrigued by 
the news of the Moscow 
gathering, saw it as the same 
type of exercise as last week’s 
two-day conference reviewing 
the future of Soviet foreign 
policy in the Gorbachov era.

Takeover Panel endorses 
use of Chinese walls 


The Takeover Panel yesterday 

S btished interim rules on 
Jnese wall arrangements set 
up by financial conglomerates 
involved in takeovers. 

The rules endorse the use of 
Chinese walls between 
markeunakers and advising 
banks in bid situations, sub- 
ject to clear undertakings that 
the arrangements exist \ 
This mirrors the proposals 
of the Securities and Invest- 
ments Board which recognize 
the use of Chinese walls 
provided that there are suffi- 
cient compliance and moni- 
toring procedures to ensure 
their efficacy. 

The Panel said that the 
immediate problem con- 
cerned the pro-big bang posi- 
tion of maiketraakers within a 
conglomerate which incorpo- 
rated a bank advising on a bid. 


By Lawrence Lever 


** when the new relationships 
of the firms in question will 
generally have been estab- 
lished but the new 
marketmaking operating 
structure will not have come 
into effect”. 

During this intermediate 
phase the Panel said that it 
wifi follow the line of the 
Stock Excfaan^ of regarding 
the marketmaking activities of 
the business concerned as 
being run' in a fully indepen- 
dent manner. 

Also - in line with Slock 
Exchange practice, the panel 
wifi require explicit undertak- 
ings from the parties con- 
cerned that this degree of 
independence will be 
maintained. 

Given such undertakings, 
the Panel has said that it will, 
during foe intermediate peri- 


od until big bang on October 
27, work on foe assumption 
that foe maricetmakeis are not 
acting in concert with foe 
financial advisers concerned. 

Also, it will not regard 
either stockbrokers or jobbers 
concerned as an associate of 
the offeror or offeree company 
for disclosure purposes under 
rule right of foe Takeover 
Code. 

However the Panel has said 
that in one instance Chinese 
wall arrangements will not be 
sufficiCTL^Where a firm of 
stockbrokers is grouped with- 
in a bank and when the latter 
is acting as the financial 
adviser to an offeror, such a 
stockbroking firm must not 
act as foe independent “rule 
3” financial adviser to foe 
offeree company in foe rele- 
vant takeover”. 


The Panel however stipu- 
lates that this would not 
prevent stockbrokers which 
are connected to an offeror's 
financial adviser acting in the 
capacity as stockbroker, not 
financial adviser, to the 
offeree company in the rele- 
vant bid. 

The Panel made it clear that 
these were intermediate provi- 
sions. It will publish later this 
year its proposed roles for 
markeimaking during an offer 
period to govern foe situation 
of markeimaking and corpo- 
rate finance departments 
within the same conglomerate 
advising on a takeover. These 
will come on October 27. 

The SIB has already pub- 
lished outline draft conduct of 
business rules which approve 
the use of Chinese walls in 
certain situations. 


UK loan 
first for 
Citicorp 


By Teresa Poole 


Citicorp Investment Bank 
yesterday announced a new 
form of medium-term sterling 
floating rate agreement which 
enables investors and borrow- 
ers to set limits on iterates of 
interest payable. ■ 

The facility, claimed to be 
the first of its land. in foe 
United Kingdom, is aimed at 
bighty-geared companies 
where interest payments are a 
major item of cash outflow. 

It is expected to be popular 
with management buyouts, 
property developers, and fi- 
nancial institutions who will 
be able to repackage foe 
facility into their ' own 
products. 

The agreement is available 
in units of between £1 mini on 
and £50 millio n and for terms, 
of between six monthsand 10 
years. 

Gticorp hopes to book £500 
million in Britain by foe end 
"of the year. . 

Under foe Ceiling Rale 
Agreement, borrowers can fix 
a maximum interest rale while 
still benefiting from any de- 
cline in inarm rates below 
thatleveL.. 

For example* in yesterday’s 
markets, the cost to a borrow- 
er of a 10 percent ceding over 
five years would be a 3.45 per 
ant payment at foe start 
which is equivalent to an extra 
0.91 per cent a year. . 

The Floor/Ceiling Agree- 
ment is cheaper because bor- 
rowers agree to forfeit the 
benefits if rates drop below a 
chosen level For instance; a 
10 per cent ceiling with a 7 per 
cent floor would cost 2.45 per 
ant at the-start or an extra 
0.65 per cent annually. 

For investors, foe Floor 
Agreement provides protec- 
tion should interest rates fell 
below an agreed minimum. 

The charge to companies 
depends on foe rates chosen 
and foe period of protection 
required. 


Boots adds £326m 
to property values 


By OnrOty Staff 

Boots has revalued its prop- 
erties to give a surplus over 
book value of £326 million. 
The revaluation boosts the 
high street store group’s net' 
assets per share by 45p to 
159p. 

Boots also announced pre- 
tax profits of £2 1 0.4 million in 
the year to March 31, up 12.8 
per cent on foe previous year 
if property profits, currency 
fluctuations and exceptional 
items are excluded. 

On a similar baas, turnover 
was up 12 per cent to £2.1 
billion.- The dividend was 
increased by 14 per cent to 
7.1p. • - 

The share price moved up 
3p to 266pbut later sired 6p to 
doe down 3p on the day at 

260p. 

The chairman, Mr Robert 
Gunn, said that Boots has 
acquired five out-oftown sites 
for future retail development, 
although planning permission 
has not yet been granted. 

Mr Gunn said be intends to 
keep foe nature of foe devel- 
opment under wraps as long as 
possible, and would not con- 
firm speculation that they 
could be garden and leisure 
centres. 

Boots basnet cash of £130 
million and no gearing and is 



. Robert Gann: keen to 
nwl# acquisitions 

keen to make acquisitions. Mr 
Gunn said. It no longer has 
high hopes of being able to 
acquire a pharmaceuticals 
company in foe United States 
where its ambition to spend 
“several hundred million” is 
being frustrated by foe limited 
number of prospects. 

Consequently, Boots is 
spreading its net wider. It is 
now loo long for pharmaceuti- 
cals mid- consumer products 
businesses wortd-wide. 

Nevertheless, Boots con- 
firmed that 750 predominant- 
ly administrative jobs are to 
go, mainly in Nottingham. ' 


Saatchi 
soars 
by 67% 

By Richard Lander 
Saatchi & Saatchi, which 
became the world’s largest 
advertising agency this month 
with the acquisition of foe Ted 
Bales group, continued its 
meteoric growth in tire six 
months to March 31 with a 67 
per ant rise in interim pretax 
profits. 

They went up from £15.5 
million to £25.9 million. 

Saatchi said both foe com- 
munications and consulting 
divisions expanded strongly 
in the first naif while pretax 
margins improved to 14.1 per 
ant from (2.8 per cent 
A lower tax rate helped 
boost earnings per share from 
20. 8p to 25p and the interim 
dividend was raised from 
529p to 7.34p. 

The company is maintain- 
ing hs £68 million profits 
forecast, while share analysts 
are looking at about £112 
million for 1986-87. 

The acquisition of Ted 
Bates and Backer & 
Spielvogel another American 
advertising agency, has swal- 
lowed up most of last month's 
£407 million rights issue, but 
cash . balances should . have 
risen to about £1 50 million by 
the end of foe year, giving 
scope for further takeovers. 


ITT sells rest of Abbey Life 


ITT, foe United States* 
based multinational corpora- 
tion, yesterday severed its ties 
with Abbey Life, Britain’s 
second largest linked life com- 
pany, when it placed its 
remaining 5 1 .8 per cent stake. 

ITT sold 48.2 per cent a year 
ago. when Abbey was floated 
on foe Stock Exchange at 180p 
a share. Yesterday’s placing, 
which was planned from foe 
time of foe flotation, was 
made at I90p a share and 
raised £276 million for ITT. 


By Alison Eadie 

Abbey shares fell 21p to 
194p on a-day when the FT-30 
share index fell 11.6 points. 
The shares have been widely 
placed, with no institution 
holding more than 5 per cent 

—Mr Michael Hepher, man- 
aging director of Abbey, said 
font foe placing had been on 
the agenda for a long time and 
would have no effect on 
Abbey's trading. In the longer 
term, he said. Abbey’s new 
found independence could 


give greater flexibility if the 
company wanted to make 
acquisitions. 

ITTs divestment of Abbey 
was pan of its corporate 
restructuring announced IS 
months ago. 

• LEP Group yesterday 
launched a £14.5 million 
rights issue of one-for-six at 
235p a share on foe back of its 
results for 1985 which showed 

S unfits of £9.08 million, up

By David Sarith, Economics Correspondent 


World economic prospects 
have improved sharply be- 
cause of lower oil prices, foe 
dollar’s fell .and dedming 
interest rates, the Organiza- 
tion for Economic Co-opera- 
tion and Development says. 

The OECD’s twice-yeariy 
Economic Outlook, published 
today, says' macroeconomic 
ahartions are better than they 
have been for some years. 

{Conditions have improved 
to an unusual degree over the 
past six months, it sap, 
because of three factors. Oil 
prices have declined by 40 per 
cent, from $26.50 a barrel last 
year to an average $15 a 
barrel which is assumed to 
continue this year and next 
The dollar’s over-valuation 

has been partly corrected, with 
a fell of nearly 25 per cent in 
effective terms, and interest 
rates, particularly long-term 
rates, have begun to decline. 

The initial effects of these 
factors have been on world 
inflation. Average consumer 
prices among foe 24 OECD 
countries declined in February

and March, the first time since 
the body was set up in 1960. 

OECD inflation is forecast 
to be 3.5 per cent this year and 
3 per cent next Excluding 
Iceland. Greece and Turkey, 
where inflation is now above 
20 per cent, the rate next year 
is predicted to fell to 2.25 per 
cent. Zero inflation is predict- 
ed for Japan, Germany, foe 
Netherlands and Switzerland. 

The OECD has revised up 
its growth forecasts. Growth 
among the industrialized 
countries is expected to aver- 
age 3 pa* cent this year and 
3215 per cent in 1 987. 

But more important than 
the actual growth figures — 
OECD gross national product 
is now expected to be I per 
cent higher in the middle of 
next year than in the forecast 
six. months ago — growth 
should .be better balanced. 
Tensions in foe world econo- 
my have bees reduced, al- 
though some serious imbal- 
ances remain, the report says. 

The biggest imbalance is the 
US. current account deficit

Money market interest rates 
dropped again yesterday, in 
anticipation of an early cut in 
base rates from tire 10 percent 
leveL A strong dollar perfor- 
mance failed to depress base 
rate optimism. 

The dollar was boosted by a 
1.4 per cent rise in leading 
indicators last month, the 
biggest rise for nearly three 
years. The dollar traded brief- 
ly above DM230 and closed at 
171 against the yen. 

The pound lost nearly a cent 
to $1.4927, hot gained a 
pfennig to DMZA325- 

forecast at $132 billion this 
year and narrowing only 
slightly, to $125 billion, next- 
japan’s current account sur- 
plus is put at $77 billlion this 
year and $71 billion in 1987. 

Even so, the OECD attaches 
Jittie “downside risk” to its 
growth forecast. Despite the 
unproved prospect, growth is 
unfikefy to he sufficient to 
reduce unemployment signifi- 
cantly. The forecast is for no 
chang e in the OECD unem- 
ployment rate of 8.25 per cent. 


It is important that interest 
rales be further reduced, the 
report says, and that other 
measures be taken, notably to 
improve market flexibility in. 
Europe and foster growth. 

Japan and Germany should 
be prepared to delay their 
programmes of reducing foe 
ratio of public sector debt to 
GNP. 

Detailed calculations of foe 
effects of the oil price fell 
suggest the improvement in 
the terms of trade in foe 
industrialized countries that 
has resulted is equivalent to 
between 1 and 1.5 per cent of 
GNP. 

The oil price fell has low- 
ered the import bill for foe 
OECD area by a net $65 
billion a year, or 0.75 per cent 
of GNP. 

For Britain, the forecast is 
for 3 per cent growth this year, 
falling to 2.25 per ant nexL 
The inflation rate is expected 
to stabilize at 4 per ant next 
year, but jobless figures could 
edge down, from a current rate 
of 12. per ant, on OECD 
definitions, to 1 1.5 per ant by 
foe second half of 1987.

Three-year high for US 
economic indicators 


Washington (Renter) — The 
Administration said yesterday 
that its main forecasting gange 
for tire United States economy 
showed the largest rise in 
aearfy three years in April 
amid other sign s of stronger 
economic growth in foe fhtnre. 

The Commerce 

Department’s index of leading 
indicators surged 15 per cent 
last month, foe biggest rise 
since Jane, 1983, when it rose 
1 3 per ant. 

The index has risen tit 20 of 
the past 12 months and was 
revised, upward for March to 
shows 0.9 per cent gain. 

Analysts were surprised at 


i 


the size of the increase. The 
dollar gaifwd on finrnirial 
markets as traders interpreted 
the report as an indication of a 
st ron ger US economy. 

The report helps to clarify 
the economy’s direction, which 

has been marked by slaggbh- 
ness despite lower interest 
rates mid oil prices. 

Meanwhile, the Paris-based 
Organization for Economic 
Cooperation and Development 
(OECD) expressed confidence 
in the US economic outlook. 

The group raised its forecast 
for US growth after inflation 
to an annual 3.75 per cent rale 
in the second half of this year 
and through 1967.

Hillsdown bows out 
of Berisford battle 


Hillsdown Holdings had always 
hoped for a swift consummation of its 
bid for S & W Berisford so its 
withdrawal yesterday was not a big 
surprise. The new twist to the affair 
was the sale of its 14.7 per cent stake 
in Berisford to the Italian group 
Femxzzi, which, after seeming to melt 
into the background, is now firmly to 
the fore again with a crucial 23.7 per. 
cent holding in Ephraim Margulies’ 
besieged company. 

The immediate question is whether 
Ferruzzi will bid tor Berisford. If it 
does, a monopolies reference seems 
unavoidable. Even if it does not, the 
stake may well be deemed big enough 
in the circumstances of a general 
inquiry into the British sugar refining 
industry to justify a merger reference 
separate from the inquiry into Tate & 
Lyle’s conditional bid for British 
Sugar. Since the Monopolies 
Commission inquiry is designed to set 
the shape of the British sugar indusyry 
for years to come Ferruzzi probably 
thought that it might as weH have a go 
at British Sugar now. 

For Tate, Ferruzzi’s reappearance is 
not the nuisance it might seem. 
Ferruzzi is a less serious competitor 
than Hillsdown because it has already 
run foul of a European Commission 
worried about its powerful position in 
European sugar. The very fact that it is 
a Continental company, moreover, 
underlines Tate's argument that the 
British industry must be considered in 
an EEC context 

But if Ferruzzi does not dismay 
Tate, its bigger stake is unlikely to be 
well received by Berisford. Mr 
Margulies’ plans for restructuring the 
company depend critically on being 
able to exploit freely the breathing 
space provided by the Monopolies 
Commission. A deal which would 
remove British Sugar from the 
Berisford orbit may be very close, but 
it would require an extraordinary 
genera] meeting. Ferruzzi holds 
enough votes to make any deal almost 
impossible without its agreement 

Such complications encouraged 
Hillsdown to pull out The stake was 
passed on to Ferruzzi at a tidy profit, 
and Hillsdown is free to bid for other 
companies. But the freedom may 
have been bought at the cost of 
reinforcing the City view that 
Hillsdown’s chief interest is in a quick 
deal rather than a long hauL Certainly 
Hillsdown and its adviser Kleinwort 
Benson seem to have underestimated 
the political complexities of sugar. 

There must be a strong chance that 
the politics will block both Tate and 
Ferruzzi from taking over British 
Sugar, with the ironic result that Mr 
Margulies will be left unable to reduce 
his debt and management problems 
by selling the one Berisford asset 
others are keen to buy. 

A very fine discount 

The discount houses refuse to lie 
down. Yesterday saw yet more activ- 
ity in the sector with Gerrard & 
National, the largest of the pack with a 
market capitalization of £106 million, 
coming out with its first rights issue. 


The £22 million capital-raising ex- 
ercise comes less than a month after 
Cater Allen, a close competitor, raised 
£18 million. 

In contrast with Cater Allen, 
Gerrard & National chose not to go 
the deep-discoum route. Indeed, the 
company was congratulating itself 
yesterday over the very fine terms — a 
discount of a mere 9.5 per cent — it 
had achieved. It had rightly calculated 
that a near- 100 per cent increase in 
profits last year, to £10.1 million, 
would be enough to persuade under- 
writers to take the issue without a 
murmur. 

The new capital is going towards the 
continued diversification of the 
group, with £20 million being used to 
capitalize the company’s gilt-edged 
market making operation, Gerrard & 
National Securities. That should put ft 
on a reasonably equal footing with 
most of its competitors in capital 
terms. 

At the same time, shareholders will 
be asked to approve the formation of a 
new holding company, Gerrard & 
National Holdings, of which the 
principal subsidiaries will be the 
traditional discount house, the gilts 
operation and GNI, the commodities 
and futures broking operation. 

The immediate usefulness of the 
holding company is that it will satisfy 
the Bank of England’s requirements 
that market makers in the new gilts 
market must be separately-capitalized 
subsidiaries — not offshoots risking 
their parent’s capital. 

In the longer run, holding-company 
formulae will allow a more flexible 
approach to diversification into areas 
not traditionally favoured by discount 
houses. 

While diversification is necessary 
for the dwindling band of discount 
houses left with a Stock Exchange 
quotation, the year-end figures re- 
vealed by Gerrard & National yes- 
terday prove how far the process still 
has to go. The 98 per cent rise in prof- 
its came largely through getting the 
discount market right towards the end 
of the year. Diversification might, 
eventually, bring a more stable earn- 
ings performance. 

SG Warburg’s Feputation- 

In this column yesterday, headed 
“Reputation dented”, it was suggested 
that SG Warburg’s corporate finance 
division and Warburg Investment 
Management had colluded in 
“snaring” Wedgwood for Warburg’s 
client , London International, by WIM 
purchasing 25 per cent of Wedgwood's 
equity and making those shares 
available to London International in 
furtherance of that company’s bid. 

In fact, SG Warburg is not acting 
for, and has not acted as adviser to, 
London International in its bid for 
Wedgwood and there was not any 
element of collusion between SG 
Warburg’s corporate finance division 
and WIM. We apologize to SG 
Warburg & Co and WIM for this error 
and for suggesting there has been 
collusion between the two companies: 
we acknowledge that the suggestion is 
totally unfounded.

Share price handicaps 
Courtaulds expansion 


Abbey Life leads shares lower 


-Coortaulds is frustrated in its 
ambitions. After six years of 
internal cuts and reshaping it 
is ready to make acquisitions. 
But because its share price is 
rated at a discount to the rest 
! of the market, despite a SO 
per cent rise to 289p in the 
! past six months, acquisitions 
are virtually ruled out 
While that may limit the 
chairman. Sir Christopher 
Hogg, and his team to small 
purchases for cash, it is not 
. completely debilitating. They 
have other ideas for 
expansion. 

Investors meanwhile are 
; stuck with the image of a no- 


Courtaulds intends to prove 
them wrong. 

Sir Christopher says the 
group is starting to grow in 
real terms, implying that it is 
no longer dependent cm cost 
savings for its profits growth. 
The market wants to see 
more evidence for this claim. 

Rationalization still has a 
place at Courtaulds, but from 
now on it is likely to be small 
scale. The number of employ- 
ees is 68,000, down from 
265,000 in 1981, and while it 
still falling , the roll call is in 
gradual decline rather than 
the steep descent that was the 
dominant and unhappy fea- 
ture of recent years. 

Last year saw the closure of 
two - fibres plants with an 
annual saving of £5 million, 
but they were probably die 
last plants of find size to go. 
The cost reduction was one of 
the main factors in the im- 
provement in the fibres divi- 
• sion which contributed £51 
•million, up from £37 million 
-last year. 

Despite currencies which 
cost £4.3 million, the disrup- 
tion following the plant clo- 
sures and a weak market for 
textiles, group profits jumped 
from £128 million to £143 
million before tax. 

There was, however, little 
real growth in sales, even 
allowing for the effect of 
e xchang e rate movements. 
Without acquisitions creating 
growth could prove difficult 
Capital spending, which last 
-year ran to more than £120 
million, should help. And the 
'group is building up its 
portfolio of brands which 
already takes in Aristoc, Lyle 
and Scott, Wolsey and BerteL 

Sr Christopher says the 
new emphasis on brands 
should not detract from the 

C p’s existing business vrith 
cs and Spencer, which 
accounts for £200 million

sales annually. Courtaulds is 
MAS'S largest textile suppli- 
er, so the relationship is 
mutually important 

The shares do not yet 
deserve a growth tag but the 
company’s stability should be 
increasingly recognized in the 
price. Assuming profits reach 
£160 million this year and the 
tax charge stays below 20 per 
cent the p/e ratio is only 9. 
That looks too low. 

Redland 

Investors who believe Red- 
land just manufactures roof 
tiles are in for a shock. As well 
as befog a sophisticated fi- 
nancial _ operator, it has 
turned into something of a 
property developer. 

The company stresses that 
the 700-acre development 
next to its quarry in San 
Antonio, Texas, is but a 
sideline to its main b uildin g 
materials business, welcome 
though it is. 

Redland acquired the quar- 
ry for $71 million in 1983. 
list year the quarrying activ- 
ity produced S 1 5 mflhon (£10 
million) profits, up from $1 1 
million, and it is set to double 
this year. 

Iti addition there was-a $2 
million contribution from the 
partnership set up to develop 
the spare land. Redland owns 

There will be a si^iar^ro^ 
arising from the initial sale of 
the land by Redland to the 
partnership, in each of the 
next four years. Profits from 
developing the land should 
come through in about 1990 
and could run for 15 years. 

Meanwhile, profits in its 
mainstream businesses are 
moving steadily ahead. Last 
year the group made £113 
million, up from £108 mil- 
lion, with the main advances 
at home and in North Ameri- 
ca. 

In .West Germany profits 
were severely deated by the 
bad weather and a fall in 
housing starts. The Austra- 
lian contribution was hit by 
exchange rate movements. 
Overall currencies cost £4.5 
million. 

The company was helped 
by a lower-than-expected tax 
charge, leaving earning per 
share np by 14 per cent at 
31.8p, against a 4 per cent 
pretax profits increase.. De- 
spite that, the shares took 
their cue’ from the maricefs 
doldrums and fell 5p to 429p 
on the results: 


• G A G KYNOCEb Six 
months to Feb. 28, 1986. In- 


At that- level, they are 
trading on 12 times prospec- 
tive earnings, assuming prof- 
its rise to £127 million this 
year. That looks modest on 
trading grounds and allows 
nothing for the American 
property development. 

Bredero 

Properties 

Bredero Properties, the Brit- 
ish property arm of Vere- 
nigde Bedrijven Bredero, the 
quoted Dutch company, is 
offering 50.5 per cent of Hs 
share capital for sale at 145p 
per share to raise £5.1 min inn 
after expenses. 

■Bredero Properties, which 
is a mixture of investment 
and property trading compa- 
ny, has made its name in the 
United Kingdom by building 
high quality town centre re- 
tail schemes with institution- 
al partners. 

It has retained a 28 per cent 
stake, valued at £14 million, 
in the Ashley Centre, a large 
retail and office development 
in Epsom, Surrey, and it aims 
to keep the same interest in 
its £50 million retail project 
in Aberdeen which is under- 
pinned by the John Lewis 
Partnership's decision to take 
a department store next door. 

Bredero Properties has per- 
mission for an ambitious £95 
million office development in 
Hammersmith, west London 
which is yet to be funded. 
Borrowings for the develop- 
ment programme will rise 
steadily to take them to 50

APV condemns 
£182m Siebe bid 


By Teresa Poole 


The board of APV Hold- 
ings, the process engineering 
group, yesterday launched a 
hard-hitting defence against 
the £182 million bid from 
Siebe; saying that it was trying 
to buy foe company on toe 
cheap. 

The defence document 
prompted Siebe to issue its 
results for toe year to April 5, 
which showed pretax profits 
almost doubled at £33.1 mil- 
lion, including a £9.5 million 
contribution from CompAir, 
acquired last year. 

■ Turnover increased by 75 
per cent to £372 minion. The 
figures, which were better than 
expected, helped Siebe's 
shares gain 25p to 93 5p. 

In the increasingly hostile 
battle, APVs chairman. Sir 
Ronald McIntosh, said there 
was no industrial logic to the 
bid and that the all-paper 
convertible preference share 
offer was of questionable val- 
ue and narrow investor 
appeal. 

• He also criticized Siebe for 
aiming to double in size for 
the second time in 12 months 
rather than concentrating on " 
consolidating its position 
APV points, to its own 


1986 saw a substantial improve- 
ment compared with the same 
period fast year. There was an 
encouraging surplus in the quar- 
ter, when investment income 
was taken into account.

promises shareholders a prof-

The company questions 
Siebe’s use of acquisition ac- 
counting in producing hs prof- 
its growth and claims that in 
real terras the trading profits 
of all the main British manu- 
facturing businesses operated 
by Siebe continuously over 
the last five years have' 
declined. 

According to yesterday’s fig- 
ures, Siebe’s original compa- 
nies increased profits from 
£13.1 million to £17-7 million 
last year. 

Sir Ronald said APV and 
Siebe, which makes safety and 
engineering products, have no 
common technology, markets 
or customers. 

He added: “Mr Barrie Ste- 
phens (Siebe's chief executive) 
has been very successful in 
operating a conglomerate

YOUR OWN BUSINESS 




Too much 
talk, not 
enough 
t rimming 

By Teresa Poole 

The small business community has given 
a lukewarm welcome to Lord Young's 
White Paper on deregulation, published 
last week, which aims to cut unecessary 
red tape and to create a business 
environment in which small firms will 
prosper. 

Though there is overwhelming sup- 
port among the small business lobby 
groups for attacking superfluous bureau- 
cracy, the White Papa 1 is criticized by 
many for merely repeating the 
Government's good intentions without 
coming up with enough specific sugges- 
tions for action. 

Building Bitsinesses...Not Barriers 
contains SI proposals, many of which 
involve further studies, in particular a 
main review of VAT policy. The main 
items in the White Paper include making 
it easier to change the use of a building 
without planning permission, introduc- 
ing a £25 fee to take a case to an 
industrial tribunal exempting firms with 
fewer than 10 employees from having to 
keep a job open for women on maternity 
leave and simplifying the form and 
content of small company accounts. 

The paper also gives details of the 
Central Task Force set up by the 
Department of Employment to monitor 
all new legislation for its impact on 
business. In each case the cost to 
industry must be estimated and any 
scope considered for making specific 
provisions for small firms such as 
exempting them from the regulation's 
requirements. 

This is how some groups reacted: 

• The Forum for Private Business 
commented that almost three-quarters of 
the main proposals are devoted to fringe 
problem areas or issues affecting minor-

Bureau: “We need

ily industries such as agriculture, trans- 
port and radio. It criticizes the 

concentration on deregulation rather 
than simplification and claims that the 
10% hours of paperwork burdening the 
average small business owner will be left 
almost untouched. 

Gerry Dowds, of the Fonim, said: 
“Deregulation deals with fringe areas 
whereas simplification deals with the 
basics. I’ve not met one small business- 
man who has had one good thing to say 
about dismantling the employment pro- 
tection. We do not want second-class 
employees and second-class customers." 

instead, the Forum wants a substantial 
increase in the VAT threshold and a new 
legal identitiy for small firms. 

• The verdict from Conservative MP 
Michael Grylls, chairman of the Small 
Business Bureau, is “so far. so good” but 
he admits that the paper appears to be a

ment department," be said and suggested 
that in each a minister should have 
particular responsibility for 
deregulation. 

• The National Federation of Self- 
Employed and Small Businesses wel- 


comed the further initiative but would 
like to see more concentration on the 
role that small businesses play as unpaid 
tax collectors for the Government. 

• The Association of British Cham- 
bers of Commerce said that the White 
Paper contains some useful and practical 
proposals but "some of the measures are 
minor and will do little to promote the 
enterprise culture both we and the 
Government want.” 

Though it supports Lord Young’s 
efforts, the association wants a speedier 
introduction of cash accounting for VAT 
and a review of the heavy penalties for 
breaching the sick-pay rules. On employ- 
ment legislation it wants a uniform 
definition of small firms for where there 
is some form of exemption as in 
maternity leave and disciplinery matters. 

• Barry Baldwin, national chairman at 
the Union of Independent Companies, 
found the paper encouraging. He said the 
Government had done reasonably well 
since Lifting the Burden, last year’s 
deregulation White Paper, although be 
was disappointed at the decision not to 
lift the small companies audit 
requirement 

in many people's eyes, the new task 
force is likely to be the most effective 
weapon against red tape. There should be 
more emphasis on stopping new poorly 
formulated new legislations than on 
dismantling existing laws. The Data 
Protection Act, which has caused consid- 
erable trouble for small companies, is a 
pertinent example given that the deci- 
sion to investigate its impact on small 
business was not made until after the 
dosing date for registration. 

Hie registrar’s consideration of the 
need for simplified registration forms is 
seen as coming rather later in the day.

Minority aid 


■ The Ethnic Minority Business 
Development Unit at the City of London 
Polytechnic — the first of its kind in 
Britain — has its official opening on 
Monday after four months of 
successfully running business education 
courses for would-be Afro-Carribean 
and Asian business people who have 
never had any managerial training. 


Modelled on similar US ventures, the 
development unit aims to tackle the 
under-representation of black people 
at managerial level and at the head of 
owner-manager businesses. Its 
management training courses cover 
practical training in tne basics for 
setting up or expanding a business but 


BRIEFING 


are also designed to deal with 
difficulties particular to members of the 
ethnic communities. 

The courses are free to people living 
in the Inner London Education Authority 
area but demand has already built up 
and the first available places are in 
October. The director, Uoyd Mur- 
Green, hopes that more than 200 people 
will have completed the course by the • 
end of the year. The current programme 
runs for eight sessions, which are held 
two evenings a week.

David Smith looks at ‘full employment’ in Sweden and considers the lessons for Britain 

Swedish jobs record steals 
German economic thunder 


Unemployment has takes 
over from inflation as the 
main economic policy issue in 
Britain. It could mean that the 
politicians have to turn their 
attention away from West 
Germany with zero inflation 
but an unemployment rate of 
9 per cent to Sweden with full 
employment. 

Sweden has persued a policy 
of full employment since the 
immediate post-war years. 
The rate hit an unacceptably 
high 4.1 percent in September 
19S3 but is now back below 3 
per cent - a level which, 
because there will always be 
some unemployment in the 
economy as people change 


There is no stigma 
attached to official 
training schemes 

jobs, most economists would 
regard as full employment 

Indeed, in some "parts of 
Sweden the job market is very 
tight indeed. Many Stockholm 
employers are finding it diffi- 
cult to recruit either skilled or 
unskilled workers. 

Sweden's full employment 
is not accompanied by Ger- 
man style zero inflation. But 
the rale, 4.5 per cent in the 
first few months of the year 
and forecast to fell to 3 per 
cent during the second half; is 
not markedly different to that 
of Britain. 

The big difference, of 
course, is the unemployment 
rate of under 3 per cent, 
compared with more than 13 
percent in Britain. The Swed- 
ish success on unemployment 
has been achieved by the long- 


term application of labour 
market policies which are only 
now gaining acceptance in 
Britain. 

The Swedish model dates 
back to 1951 when two trade 
union economists, Mr Gosta 
Refan and Mr Rudolf 
Mridncr, proposed an eco- 
nomic policy for full employ- 
ment and low inflation. The 
Rebn/Meidner model had 
four main ingredients: 

1. Tight overall fiscal quality. 

2. -Solidarity” in wage policy 
— reasonable and fair, but in 
practice relatively small dif- 
ferentials. 

3. Selectively targeted mea- 
sures to tackle unem- 
ployment 

4. Measures to improve the 
mobility of labour, and to 
match labour supply and de- 
mand, including t raining and 
retraining programmes. 

Thus, 35 years ago, Sweden 
had latched on to the idea that 
while a general fiscal boost to 
the economy will set off 
inflation, measures directly 
targeted at the unemployed 
will leave the employed 
workforce, or core, unaffected 
and achieve full employment 
without inflation. 

There is considerable de- 
bate in Sweden about whether 
the model, as originally pro- 
posed, has been applied or just 
the pails that were convenient 
at different times. Even so, the 
record speaks for itself. 


Unemployment 
rates % 



But does Sweden really 
have full employment? Dr Uu 
Jacobsson, of the Swedish 
Employers Federation, argues 
that to the recorded rate of 
open unemployment should 
be added at least the same 
Dumber again for people taken 
out of unemployment by la- 
bour market measures. 


recorded rales in the rest of 
Europe. 

But Mr Allan Larsson, di- 
rector general of the National 
Labour Market Board, strong- 
ly rejects thfe. The govern- 
ment labour market measures 
are mainly for retraining, he 
says, and believes there is no 


Since 1970 employment in the 
public sector has risen by 70% 


Professor Willy Bergstrom, 
of the Trade Union Institute 
for economic research, goes 
further, suggesting that -true” 
unemployment in' Sweden 
could be of the order of 1 0 per 
cent, not very different to the 


case for counting them among 
the unemployed. 

“You would not treat some- 
one tr aining to be a dentist at 
university as being among the 
hidden unemployed”, be told 
The Times. “So why adopt 


this approach for people nam- 
ing for other jobs." 

What is true is that there is 
no stigma attached to govern- 
ment naming and support 
schemes. Youth unemploy- 
ment has been reduced from 
10 per cent three years ago to 
around 4 per cent now, by a 
mixture of part-time work and 
training measures. The drop 
in youth unemployment is 
reflected in the confidence of 
Sweden's young people. 

There is, of course; another 
contrast between Sweden and 
Britain in that, while public 
sector employment in Britain 
has been pared down, in 
Sweeten h has continued to 
expand. Since 1970, public 
sector employment has in- 
creased by about 70 per cent, 
within an overall expansion of 
employment of just 10 per 
cent 

Sweden has reduced the 
pace of public sector expan- 
sion. The fiscal deficit has 
been reduced 13 per cent of 
gross domestic product in 
1982-83 to a projected 6 per 
cent for 1986-87. However, 
employment in local govern- 
ment continues to increase. 

Businessmen are anxious to 
see a lid on the public sector's 
expansion and the tax burden. 
Mr Harry Faulkner, chief 
executive of Atfa-Laval, one of 
Sweden’s leading multination- 
al companies, believes that foe 
public sector — currently 


equivalent to over half of 
gross domestic product — 
cannot expand further with- 
out choking private industry. 

Can Sweden’s foil employ- 
ment continue without a rap- 
idly expanding public sector? 
Professor BHgsmmr - thinks 
that the main imbalance ip the 
economy — too snail a manu- 
facturing sector - has to be 
tackled. 

Private manufacturing in- 
vestment expanded by about 
15 percent a year in 1984 and 
1985, as businessmen re- 
sponded to the favourable 
effects of the 1982 devalua- 
tion: But this year, despite 
felling interest rates, high 


‘Crunch’ feared 
without rapid 
private growth 


{unfits, high capacity utiliza- 
tion and a tax regime which 
fey oare :. investment, it: has 
tailed off - .... 

Dr Jacobsson commented: 
“The crunch may still be to 
come, probably m die next 
cyclical dtiwnnun. The public 
sector has to stop expanding”. 

But the Swedish system has 
above all learned to cope^ both 
with recession and a rise in the 
labour force. The female par- 
ticipation ratio, at neatly 70 
per cent, is amon&the highest 
in the world. 

Mr Latsson is confident 
about the future. “The private 
sector, particularly services, 
will expand, alongside a slow- 
er public sector expansion”, 
he said. “I see nothing to 
suggest we cannot ma i ntai n 
full .employment” -

Dividends grew by 85% 
above UK inflation

Looking at the prospects for 1986, 

I must stress that exchange movements are 
unpredictable and clearly affect the 
translation of our earnings into sterling, as 

was seen last year with the depreciation 
of the US dollar. However, in local 
currencies, I expect the Group to achieve 
further progress. 

Our tobacco business should increase 
its overall market share with a further 
improvement in trading profit for the year 
despite a decline in the first six months. In 

particular; increased prof its from Brown 
& Williamson will be totally concentrated 
into the second half of the year as a . 
consequence of exceptionally heavy trade 
loading at the end of 1985. B.A.T 
Cigarettenfabriken should continue to 
improve its performance in the West 
German market. In Brazil, the impact of 
the Zero Inflation Plan remains uncertain 
particularly in view of the Government’s 
refusal to allow a restoration of 
manufacturers’ margins to reasonable 
economic levels. 

The retailing environment in the US 
continues to be challenging, but the 
businesses that we are retaining are well 
placed to compete, and I expect a higher 
performance from them. Department 
stores in West Germany face another 
difficult year but Horten should show an 
improvement in profit. In the UK, Argos 
continues to produce strong growth and 
will be launching exciting new superstores 
in August. 

Wiggins Teape has made an excellent 
start to the year with profits from carbonless 



well ahead and a good contribution from 
fine papers^ but increasing pulp prices 
may partly offset this improvement. 
Appleton Papers also continues its strong 
growth and should produce significantly 
improved profits from further volume 
increases of carbonless sales and greater 
manufacturing efficiency. 

The general insurance busihes^pf 
Eagle Star will benefit from improvirig- 
market conditions in the UK and is achieving 
excellent growth in premium income. The 

rate of growth of Allied Dunbar may be 
somewhat tempered by comparison with 
the very high levels of pension business 
transacted in the pre-Budget period of 
1985, but the new permanent health 
product has proved very successful; Allied 
Dunbarfe financial surplus for the year 
should again be well ahead. 

The contribution to Group operating 
profit from Associated Companies 
continues to be important, but growth 
prospects in Imasco are likely to be 
affected by highly competitive conditions 
in the Canadian cigarette market 

~ Despite strong operating cash flow; 
the Group’s net interest chaige will show a 
further increase arising from a full year’s 
financing cost of Allied Dunbar and lower 
investment returns from Brazil. 

Overall I expect the full year's results 
to show renewed growth at the operating, 
pre-tax and attributable profit levels, 
subject once again to the translation effect 
of exchange rates, particularly the US 
dollar: Witnin this framework, it remains 
the intention of your Board to continue to 
increase dividends well in excess of . the 
rate of inflation.

ground Ob which he made it 
deprived it of much substance. 
In case the ground of 
refusal was simply in pursuit of 
the NUT* industrial action.

administrative decision taken 
fay the head teacher. Cover 
regulations were also issued 
under his authority, and were 
n ec es sa ry for the proper running 
of the school They- com- 
the timetable. In his 
judgment, teachers 
were under a contractual duty to 
corapfywnh both. 

Whether a' suddTv teacher 
anld be called mailer the first 
day, the third day, or the fifth 
day, was a matter of policy for 
the authority. 

Tbe contracts of teachers gave

The standards of

The plaintiffs contended that

It had long beat the practice 
for teachers to provide cover far 
absent cofleagnes. The National 
Union of Teachers contended 
that that was as a matter of 
goodwill; the lotti authorities as 
a matter ; of contractual obfiga- 
rioa. 

By a letter dated January 30. 
1985 the NUT instructed mem- 
bers to refuse to provide such 
cover for absent colleagues. The 
local authorities* response was 
to make deductions from 'the

was a contractual duty to pro-

they were also silent as to

other important respects. 

- A contract of employment in 

■a professional capacity would 
not normally be- expected, to 
detail a'pcofesskmal employee's 
obligations; It wottid not be

oradoctoc. _ * •- 
Without essaying any defi- 
nition of a profession, his 
Lordship was firmly of opinion 
that teachers were members of a 
profession. 

Then-obligations could not be 

ranfrrw d In imparting fc 

' ' to the pupils. The 
relationship between a teacher 
and his pupils went further and 
incl u d e d obligations of disci- 
pline and care. 


Professionals were employed 
to provide a particular service, 
and had a duty to do so

Institutions required an 

administrative hioarchy, and in G. Hemtnii^s, Croydon. 


After a lengthy consideration 
of toe authorities, his Lordship 
concluded that ifan employee in 
breach of contract foiled of 
refused to perform bis contrac* 
oral services, his right to recover 
his salary for the period during 
w hi ch the foil me or refusal 
occurred was impeached by the 
employer's cross-claim for dam-'

It would be manifestly unjust 
in such a case to allow the 
employee to receive his safety in

the Joss to thc employer.of those 
services. _ . ' • ’ ;• 

The deduction* here were 
small, m amount, , but were not

therefore entitled in equity to set 
off against the salaries sums not 
exceeding the damages claim- 
able. 

The deductions were justifi- 
able, and the actions would 
therefore be dismissed. The 
Ap pro pr i a te declarations would 
be made, and costs would be 
awarded to toe defendants. - -

THE 


A SPECIAL REPORT ON 
THE INSTITUTION OF 
ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING/I 



TIMES 


(C FOCI LSI 


May 30, 1986 




RosDraiiwaur 


The Institution of Efecftical 
Engineers — better known as 
the IEE — may be the third 
oldest among the key engj- 
neering bodies and probably 
the richest. 

Yet it is nothing if not 
practical. It is a characteristic 
that emerges whether it is 
tackling the problems and 
future of industry, or of itself 
in providing good value with 
wise counsel whether it is to its 
members or the many it 
influences from the Govern* 
ment down." -- 

- Even the individual ritizeri 
directly feds the impact of the 
IEE It sets the safety- regula- 
tion^ updated from time to 
time as technology moves on, 
for domestic electrical wiring, 
for industry, slopping and, 
more recently, offshore struc- 
tures such as ofl rigs. 

- It was the IEE that set down 
recently the need for sensitive 
earth-leakage equipment, es- 
pecially for circuits operating 
garden equipment, such as 
electric mowers and hedge- 
ni tiers. 

: Robust practicality is hardly 
the characteristic most likely 
lo be expected by anybody 
stepping, for. the first time 
through the stainless steel 
doors of the august IEE hdaft- 
quarters at Savoy Place, bn the 
Thames embankment just by 
Waterloo Bridge- The IEE 
owns the long lease of the 
building, to which it moved 
nearly 80 years ago. 

* It seems, an establishment 
of the Establishment On the 
wall of the building it is 
recorded that the British 
Broadcasting Company, sub- 
sequently the British Broad- 
casting Corporation* operated 
in the -building for nearly: 10 


years to 1932 m the days of 
crystal set listening. It was just 
across from the IEE secretary’s 
office and the IEE library that 
Lord Reith had his office. 

There is still a notice that 
tells the visitor to stay quiet 
when the red light is on. 

The truth is that the IEE is a 
pan of the Establishment 
which has had to change with 
the times. If was born in the 


as the Society of Telegraph 
Engineers in 1871 — came to 
terms with the ramifications 



of electricity and, more recent- 
ly, took on the electronics era. 

The post of secretary is the 
top administration job in 
engineering institutions. How- 
ard Losty, who came .to -the 
IEE secretaryship , in - 1980 
from managing directorships 
' in tbe-General Electric Com- 
pany. (GEC), is the se venth to 
hold the position since the IEE 
as such was formed in 1888. 

But if be beads the 
■ institution's civil service, his 
“prime minister” is the 
institution's president, tradi- 
tionally in office for a year. 
The incumbent is Admiral Sir 
Lindsay Bryson, a former 
Controller of the Royal Navy 
and the first weapons electri- 


cal engineer to achieve the 
rank of admiral. 

The Admiral is not one to 
beat about the bush. He said: 
"Professional engineers are 
always complaining about 
their lack of status. But you get 
the status you deserve. If you 
recruit too many mediocrities, 
why be surprised if they do not 
earn a high status for the 
profession?" 

But there is real evidence, 
he believes, that the picture is 
changing. Towards the end of 
1984 the IEE took stock of 10 
years of encouraging the best 
pupils to enter electrical engi- 
neering and found that not 
only the number, of applica- 
tions doubled but the quality 
of those accepted had risen 
dramatically. 

In 1975 half those going into 
universities to study electrical 
engineering rated only eight 
UCCA points or less; while 
only 15 percent had >3 points 
or higher. UCCA is the Uni- 
versity Central Council of 
Admissions that adds up pre- 
university academic qualifica- 
tions such as A-level passes. 

In 1982 fewer than 15 per 
cent were lingering at the 
eight-points level while more 
than 35 per cent were achiev- 
ing 13 points or more. There 
have since been further im- 
provements, with 45 per cent 
at 13 points or higher. 

Sir Lindsay said: “The most 
cheering tiring I have seen is 
the enormous quality of young 
people entering the universi- 
ties and polytechnics to go 
into electrical and electronic 
engineering. The fact that we 
are now recruiting a much 
bigger share of the brightest 
and best augurs very well for 
the profession. " _ 1 

- Mr Losty emphasized:- 




“There undoubtedly are a lot 
of bright youngsters wanting 
to get into the profession. 
Electronics have caught the 
imagination.'' 

As long ago as the middle of 
1984 the IEE was telling the 
House of Lords that the 
number of academic places for 
reading electrical engineering 
should be doubled. 

Sir Lindsay said: “IF the 
universities are to educate 
more students, they will need 
to recruit more lecturers. Ide- 
ally these will come from high 
achievers in their late twenties 
or early thirties with good 
industrial experience. 

“Sadly the rigid university 
salary Kales do not provide 
competition with industrial 
salaries for these people and 
some way must be found to 
solve this problem. It is 
particularly pressing in the 
power field." 

One practical way of tack- 
ling this salary problem of the 
junior university lecturer, he 
suggested, was at any rate 
short-term to provide indus- 
trial consultancies paying per- 


haps £2,000 a year which 
might not only bridge the gap 
but build a link between 
universities and industry that 
could be of great benefit in the 
future. 

He added: “We are now 
establishing what the require- 
ments are from universities 


rial incentives to persuade 
them to work in this area." 

A great practical as well as 
financial success for the IEE 
has been its computerized 
Inspec database on electrical 
engineering developments, 
pre-eminent in its field world- 
wide, although some competi- 


A recent first by the IEE was its 
venture into electronic publishing 


and polytechnics. There has 
been a reasonably warm re- 
sponse from industry.” 

The need was to improve 
the standards of teaching 
mathematics and physics in 
schools, he said. “As a nation 
we are undoubtedly a very 
inventive bunch but we have 
foiled to develop the skills and 
resources to mass-produce 
low-cost items of electronic 
hardware. We must devote 
more of our efforts to improv- 
ing our capability in comput- 
er-aided production 
engineering and to producing 
more and better engineers, 
together with adequate finan- 


tion is emerging, particularly 
in the US. 

The Inspec operation, to- 
gether with other publishing 
and conferences which are 
also aimed to run at a profit, 
account for £1 1 million of the 
lEETs annual income of £15 
million and largely account 
for the trading surplus of just 
over £2 million in the last 
financial year. 

Mr Losty said that the IEE 
recognized it had to look for 
other areas to produce income 
as competition against Inspec 
grew. 

One way was to build on the 
database and make it available 


in different ways. A recent 
launch was of an electronic 
materials information service, 
the I EE's first venture is 
electronic publishing. Groups 
of information providers eval- 
uate the data. There is also 
publication in hard copy for 
those who need that 

The IEE is also venturing 
into distance learning to pro- 
vide training materials, one of 
the needs of practising engi- 
neers who need to keep up to 
date. 

As a successful business the 
IEE is able to use the advan- 
tage of its trading sip-pluses to 
break into new territories like 
these. Sir Lindsay said: “One 
of the principal functions of 
any professional institution is 
the exchange of information 
between its members to speed 
the application of new knowl- 
edge, hasten the development 
of new products and ensure 
that existing products are 
maintained and operated at 
their maximum efficiency." 

This is why the IEE holds 
each year 850 evening meet- 
ings throughout Britain and 


More and more young people 
are going into electrical en- 
gineering. Main pictnrd 
shows Dr Laurie Cnthbert 
and Brenda Chan with, fore- 
ground, Justine Andree, and 
m the background, Laidia 
Kandoudjeft, and Diane 
Bishop at Queen Mary Col- 
lege, university of London. 
The trend is welcomed by the 
institute president. Admiral 
Sir Lindsay Bryson, above 

about 20 major conferences, 
100 one-day discussion meet- 
ings and 15 vacation period 
schools. In print it has a wide 
range of journals and books, 
with a printed product appear- 
ing about every working day 
ofthe year. 

Despite calls by the Engi- 
neering Council, umbrella 
body for the profession as well 
as the industry, for more 
integration among institu- 
tions, progress with merger? 
has been slow. But the IEE and 
the smaller Institution of Elec- 
tronic and Radio Engineers 
have an agreement in princi- 
ple to merge; a final decision is 
still to come from the mem- 
bers once detailed proposals 
have been established. 

A merger with the Institu- 
tion of Electrical Electronic 
Incorporated Engineers, 
which is to technician electri- 
cal engineers what the IEE is 
to chartered engineers, is not 
on the cards. 

But closer co-operation is 
always being sought with bod- 
ies such as this or, as in the 
computer software area, with 
organizations such as the Brit- 
ish Computer Society. 

The IEE looks likely to 
continue iis practical ap- 
proach on mergers within the 
profession just as it does in 
other matters.

Why do you get out of bed in the morning? 


In today’s society, people 
are motivated by more than 
the primitive instinct Of 
survival— the need to obtain 
each day's supply of food 
and avoid the onslaught of 
enemies or environment 
Some are restless souls Who 
look continuously , for new 
summits to surmount 
Others have a more relaxed 
view on Ufa Whatever the 
intensity of the motivation, 
the objectives vary widely. 
Some seek acclaim from a 
vast audience, some value 
the accumulation of wealth, 
others are driven to leave a 
permanent landmark on the 
surface ofthe earth, or strive 
to make things smaller more 
beautiful, more usefuL Many 
are driven by a desire to 
serve their fellow citizens. 

Today people, particularly 
the young, seem more 
motivated by idealism than . 
was the case 20 or so years 
ago. Perhaps foe greater 
social freedom and greater 
security which obtains today 
enables this idealism to 
emerge, whereas previously 
this opportunity did not exist 
Of course not an the ideals 


and the way they are 
pursued command sym- 
pathy, and we now see more 
religious and political 
terrorism in the guise of 
idealisnrthan ever before, 
With so. much idealism 
about it:. is .strange ..that 
engineers and engineering 
are not idolised. Yet it is foe 
wealth-creating industries of 
this country whose taxes 
pay for social services, 
doctors, nurses, hospitals 
and all the things the 
idealists would have more 
of. The iimitto compassion is 


the limit to provide the 
means to be compassion- 
ate. Idealists who rail against 
foe Med means put at foe 
disposal of compassion do 
not regard industry as an 
object of idealisra. • 

Whilst this , view Is true of 
those outside industry, it is 
also true of many of those 
within industry itself. Most 
engineers' motivation is to 
be, as their title states, 
ingenious. The more in- 
genious the solution the 
more ideal it is. Engineers do 
not regard themselves as 


thedispensers of the means 
of compassion. In fact, many 
only want to do engineering 
and are reluctant to move 
into other spheres, both in 
industry and society, where 
they can influence the 
generation and distribution 
-of the money which is the 
means of compassion, if 
those who are in industry 
tack idealism, how can 
industry be regarded by 
society at large as the 
fountainhead, or at least the 
paymaster of all other 
ideals? 


It is because industry is so 
poorly appreciated for its 
contribution to society that 
this year has been designa- 
ted as “Industry Year" in the 
UK. The aim of Industry Year 
is to help people understand 
the role of industry in creat- 
ing jobs, wealth and sen/ice 
to society, as well as creat- 
ing the artefacts of industry 
which all need; and to help 
dispel foe “dark satanic 
mills" image of industry and ■ 
put it in its right place in 
people's perception of 
values. 


It is too far-fetched to con- 
ceive of a torch being lit for 
industry the light of which will 
attract those growing num- 
ber of young idealists into it 
so that their motivation will 
be the reduction,- by means 
of the wealth they generate, 
of poverty, hardship and 
distress? Not for nothing 
does the (EE add a line to its 
logo in its image-creating 
promotions:- "The Institution 
of Electrical Engineers— the' 
wealth-creating profession- 
als." That's why we get out of 
bed in the morning!

in. the interest taken in it by 
the Royal Family. Her

Wales are all Honorary 
Fellows as was the fit Hon.

Too clever by half 


Those wishingfo team foe 
English language are faced 
with many baffling nuances 
in the way it is used. Not 
least is foe meaning of- the 
word "clever”. As trie 
dictionary definition implies 
desirable characteristics 
like talented and skitful, how 
is it possible tobetoodever, 
as in “too clever by hair or 
'loo clever for his own 
good”. Why is an intellectual 
a suspect even despised, 
person in Britain and a 
respected person in 
Continental Europe? 

The answer lies in foe 
much praised pragmatic 
nature of foe British 
character Two “aspects, 
social . and - educational, - 
indicate how unfortunate 
British pragmatism has been 
in generating the anti- 
HeUectuai tradition. 

A successful British entre- 
preneur would educate Ws 
children in foe aristocratic 
tradition. He would use- his 
wealth to builda mansion, go 
hunting, and L, ape foe 


. arfetocrcicy. The 4 British 
.aristocracy let him join their 
'ranks even if only granting a 
form of secondrcfass mem- 
bership. Having ruined his 
enterprise by neglecting it 
for aristocratic pursuits, the 
family was back where it 
started. From dogs to clogs 
in three generations was a 
true aphorism. 

On the Continent, the 
social structure was much 
more rigid and there was 
less class mobility than in 
Britain. The successful 
Continental entrepreneurs 
could not break -imo the 
aristocracy, and:, so /they 
formed themselves into a 
middle-class bourgeois in- 
teftectual grouping which 
today has achieved har- 
mony between “kuttur" and 
'tecnik' 1 . .- - .They. - do not 
despise intellectual achieve- 
ment In either. 

A similar calamity befell 
the . academic establish- 
ment British: pragmatism, 
dictated that foe new 
technologies of the industrial 1 


revolution should be taught 
within the existing university 
system. 

The Continental universi- 
ties were not so pragmatic, 
they would have none of this 
new technology nonsense. 
So Ihe new technologies set 
up thetroWn Technical Hoch 
Schuie and Polytechnics 
which today are far more 
prestigious and more 
difficult to enter than the 
traditional arts universities. 

How can the anti-inteitec- 
tuai bias in British Society be 
countered? Perhaps, as in 
so many matters, there is a 
self-correcting, if somewhat 
stowly responsive, mechan- 
ism. Modem technology is 
now so fiendishly complex 
that only those of high 
intellectual calibre can deal 
with ft, and such people are 
few High demand for those 
in scarce supply raises the 
plfolic perception of their 
value to society When that 
happens it wi not be 
possible to be too clever at 
aft, not just by haft 



Concern and caring for the disabled 


’ "Concern” and “caring" 
are in danger of becoming 
overworked words, destined 
for the lack of respect 
accorded to all efiettes. This 
is sad because society 
today is more concerned 
and more carfog about 
those who are disabled than 
at any time in the past 
It is another cliche to say 
that technology is taken for 
granted. Only those actually 
working in technology know 
how much has been 
achieved and what wonder- 
ful opportunities still lie 
ahead. Particularly dedi- 
cated are those applying 
modem technology to help 
those who are disabled. 
Ingenuity is not the limiting 
factor. One limiting factor is 
that no two problems are the 
same. Each problem 
requires a special solution. 


Another problem is, of 
course, money. It is the 
responsibility of those who 
have had the privilege of a 
professional education to 
use this advantage in public 
debate to ensure that 
resources are provided to 
use the technology already 
available to help the 
disabled. 

There are those who can 
see only the small dark face 
of technology; like the 
effects of environmental 
pollution, and who regard 
the march of science as 
something to be checked 
before we are all destroyed. 
The much bigger brighter 
face of technology fa taken 
for granted Perhaps we 
should have one day a year 
without electric power to 
remind people of what foe 
everyday world owes to its 


engineers and scientists. 

The IEE decided that 
steps should be taken to 
provide a more positive 
image of foe profession, and 
one of these steps has been 
the inauguration of a prize for 
the best application of 
electrical or electronic 
engineering for helping 
disabled people. 

When it came to award 
the prize in 1 985 foe quality 
of applications was so high 
that the selection of the 
winner could only be 
achieved by making two 
awards each of £5000. 

The world today is becom- 
ing more and more 
conscious of foe debt it 
owes, as a result of the 
advantages, provided by 
technology, to those who are 
unable to take full advantage 
of it 


The Institution of 
Electrical 
Engineers, where 
would you be 
without us? 


We know this sounds- a 
little brash but things just 
wouldn't be the same 
without us. we are involved 
in nearly every aspect of 
your life— at work and at 
play. Yet you probably don’t 
recognise us. We normally 
keep a fairly low profile but, 
for once, we thought we 
should speak up. 

Just imagine what life 
would be like without 
electricity and its associated 
technology. For one thing, it 
would be impossible to keep 
hospital machinery and 
equipment running; process 
food; manufacture drugs 
and medicines; or treat 
sewage. People would 
contract disease. Communi- 
cations would break down. 
There would be social 
disorder, perhaps even 
anarchy. 

Isn't this all a little far- 
fetched? Wfe don't think so. 
Engineers serve our com- 
munity and are deeply 
conscious of their social 
responsibilities. Their skills 
also improve conditions in 
emerging countries. 


Then let us take business 
both big and small. Industry, 
the key to the nation's 
prosperity, needs to keep 
apace with foreign competi- 
tion. The ability and 
ingenuity of our engineers is 
a key factor in our survival. 
British business needs innova- 
tors in such wide ranging 
activities as power engineer- 
ing, micro electronics, 
control engineering, com- 
munications, computing and 
many more. Electrical 
engineering is a “sunrise" 
industry on which the 
country depends for its 
future prosperity. 


The Institution of Electri- 
cal Engineers mirrors the 
wide range of the profession 
it serves and performs many 
important functions. We can 
all sleep safe at night in the 
secure knowledge that the 
house wont bum down if the 
wiring conforms to the 
regulations issued by the 
'Institution. The Institution 
makes representations to 
Government, NEDO, Health 
and Safety Executive and 
many others on matters 
where the knowledge and 
skills of its members are 
helpful in improving the 
environment in which we live 
and work. In its qualifying 
role, the Institution is 
concerned that those who 
enter the profession are well 
chosen and well qualified. 
They have to be both 
educated and trained to 
meet current practices and 
also be given the basic 
theoretical knowledge to' 
solve undreamed of 
problems in the future. 

Then it keeps its members 
abreast of the rapid develop- 
ment in technology through- 
out their careers. Regular 
publications, meetings, sem- 
inars and conferences pro- 
vide information of critical im- 
‘ porta nee to members. 
Institution lectures provide a 
stimulating environment for 
cross fertilization of ideas 
and new techniques. 

In so doing. The Institution 
of Electrical Engineers 
assists professional engin- 
eers to serve foe community 
and create wealth for the 
nation. You may not meet us 
often in our professional 
capacities but our logo will 
remind you who we are.

THE INSTITUTION OF 
ELECTRICAL ENGINEERS /2 


THE TIMES FRIDAY MAY 30 1986 


(( FOCI TS P 


The unique 
element that 


changed all 
our lives 


Which discovery comes at the 
-top of the list of the most 
beneficial, yet most takra-for- 
granted invention of science 
and engineering? Most proba- 
bly electricity generation in 
dose competition with the 
flush water system. 

- Life without the conve- 

- nience and associated comfbn 
flowing from the electric 
switch and the three-pin plug 
would be unthinkable for 
most of us. Indeed, just pon- 
dering such a deprivation I 
wish that another philosopher 
had devised such a memora- 

- ble accolade as Lenin who said 
65 years ago; “Communism is 
Soviet power plus electrifica- 
tion of the whole country.” 

The list of creature comforts 


is easy to compile — lighting, 
tion, dish 


refrigeration, dishwashers, ra- 
dio and television, telephones 
and home computers, vacuum 
cleaners, hair driers, toasters, 
blenders and so many other 
household gadgets. 

The roll call for industry is 
endless, ranging from air con- 
ditioning systems for office 
blocks to countless industrial 
applications. The unique 
properties of electricity are 
exploited to manufacture 
chemicals and to run electric 
motors. 

Without electricity there 
would be no information tech- 
nology revolution of micro- 
electronics. computers, 
satellites, communication 
links by copper cable and 
optical glass fibres. The prolif- 
eration of fast food restaurants 


strikes a discordant note to 
suggest there are applications 
for which electricity is simply 
an inappropriate fuel Heating 
rooms with electric bar fires is 
certainly one of them. 

Modem gas and solid-fuel 
fires are more efficient So is 
the clever rediscovery of the 
trick of electric (or gas) heal 
pumps, which use waste heat 
that is topped-up with the 
premium fueL 

A development which takes 
the idea even further are 
machines called minichips, 
standing for miniature com- 
bined heat and in-house pow- 
er. The latest of these is 
installed at the headquarters 
of the Devon and Cornwall 
police force in Exeter. It 
produces the electricity and 
hot water needs of the organi- 


zation by converting fuel into 
energy three times more effi- 


ciently than the power stations 
of the Central Electricity Gen- 
erating Board converts fossil 
fuels into electrical energy 
delivered to the consumer. 

That reflects the different 
status of electricity to die 
primary fossil fuels. One of 
those, whether it is coal, oil 
and uranium or even peat and 
wood, has to be burnt to boil 
the water for the steam to turn

Economies of scale 
allow good efficiency 


could not have happened 
if a 


without the backing of a vast 
spectrum of new electrical 
goods. 

The regeneration of more 
traditional industries has also 
occurred. Industry accounts 
for close to half of all electric- 
ity used. Essential manufac- 
turing such as cement, 
chemicals and metals are de- 
pendent on this source of 
energy. 

Inefficient old-fashioned 
processes have given way to 
more productive electrically- 
driven ones. Electric arc fur- 
naces are the basis of 
steelmaking. Aluminium 
smelting uses 45,000 mega- 
watts or the output of the 
equivalent of 40 large nuclear 
or 20 large modem coal-fired 
electricity power stations. Ad- 
vances in smelting technology 
have cut the energy needed by 
25 per cent 

Against this eulogy, it 


turbine generators. Only 28 
per cent of the energy reaches 
the customer as electricity. 

This is why the Department 
of Energy's current Monergy 
Conservation Year campaign 
says three tons of fossil rad is 
saved for every ton-equivalent 
of electricity reduced by better 
insulation and other 
measures. 

For instance, two-thirds of 
the power used in industry is 
for turning electric motors. 
Better designs of motors — 
with electronic adjustable 
speed drives and other refine- 
ments — are at last receiving 
long-overdue attention. 

When the world’s first pub- 
lic electricity supply system 
was inaugurated 105 years ago 
at Godaiming in Surrey, a 
water-driven generator pro- 
vided electricity for street 
lamps and a number of 
houses. 

From the uam cars of the 
1890s to the expansion of 
electronics technology in the 
1970s, the rise in demand for 


electricity pr ogre sse d simulta- 
neously with growth of the 
world economy and pauses in 
the Great Depression between 
the World Wars. 

In the postwar period 
growth was up to ten per cent a 
year. The technological ad- 
vances to meet the demand 
included development of large 
turbines and transmission net- 
works. These exploited econo- 
mies of scale to achieve more 
efficient generation and sup- 
ply. The thermal efficiency 
rose from about 20 per cent to 
more than 30 per cent between 
the 1940s and 1960s. with 
bigger power stations produc- 
ing electricity more cheaply 
than their predecessors. 

Furthermore, nuclear power 
had entered the equation, with 
its high capital cost but poten- 



tially lower running costs. 


fowever, the use of electric- 
ity began its sharp decline 
with the rise in oil prices from 
1973, with the following ten 
years producing a fall in 
consumption. 

A rule of thumb fin* electric- 
ity planners (although they 
call it the p lanning mar gin) is 
that the generating capacity 
should exceed demand by 
about 20 percenL This allows 
for underestimates in demand 
forecasting and major 
breakdowns. 

Since the forecasting errors 


have been on the optimistic 
side, the excess electrical ca- 
pacity in the industrial world 
overall is between 40 and 50 
percent 

There are many other diffi- 
culties. The issues of acid rain 
caused by the sulphur dioxide 
and nitrogen oxides from coal- 
fired stations, and radioactive 
waste disposal from nuclear 
plant receive most public 
attention. 

Bat environmental disputes 
about the routes of overhead 
power lines and the siting of 
luge new power stations, 
whatever the type, have faced 
the generating boards since 
electricity supply was nation- 
alized almost 40 years ago. 

After a long tussle the 
CEGB accepts that power 
stations are a source of acid 
rain. The dispute now, partic- 
ularly with kmg- 


S candinav ians whose forests 
are dying, is a difference of 
opinion about the proportion 
of blame attributed to 
Britain's power stations. Oth- 
er factors, such as the changes 
of ozone levels provoked by 
motor vehicle exhausts, are 
believed to contribute to the 
damage. 

Sulphur can be removed 
from flue-gases and by modifi- 
cation of the furnaces to trap 
the materials in the ash- They 
are expensive. The midear 
waste problem is more intrac- 
table. One approach is to 
retain spent fuel in their intact 
state, storing them at British 
Nuclear Fuel's plant, at 
Sdlafidd, in Cumbria, rather 
than reprocessing them and 
releasing Large volumes of 
gaseous, solid and liquid 
wastes. 

Technical snags which have 
plagued nuclear power and 
financial problems caused by 
wildly fluctuating oil prices, 
are experiences that must 
surely leach the wisdom of 
using a mixture of energy 
options Not only for political 
but economic and environ- 
mental reasons 


The sort ofhi-tech approach 
that has produced the effi- 
cient, and small-scale power 
system of the minichip is also 
at work in other energy tech' 
nologies. They include 
cogeneration, or combined 
beat and power, wind, wave, 
tidal and solar power; and 
geothermal energy from hot 
rocks beneath the ground.

The current 



that can cure the sick 


Energy for life is the UK 


electricity supply industry s 
latest advertising 


ng slogan. It 
extols the ubiquitous virtues 
of the force you cannot see but 
which infiltrates almost every 
domestic and working 
activity. 

Certainly, it is a persuasive 
piece of corporate public rela- 
tions aimed at stressing the 
indispensable nature of elec- 
tricity at a time when its 
generation is coming in for 
much criticism from the 
environmentalists. 

What is true however, is 
that the purveyors of electric 
power have ensured through 
the ease of use of their product 
and the superior ana often 
unique nature of the appli- 
ances, that industrial society 
would collapse without it 

The pollution-free aspects 
of electricity use can outweigh 
the hazards associated with its 
creation, say its supporters. 

Sophisticated electronics 
are rapidly improving the 
quality of life beyond the 
wildest dreams of the coal and 
gas dominated nineteenth 
century. Breathtaking ad- 
vances in medical science 
have been achieved thanks to 
the design and development 
skills of the electrical engineer. 
The face of industry has been 
changed radically and perma- 
nently with such inventions as 
the electric-arc furnace for 
stedmaking and robots in 

The electrical and electronic 
sectors form the one branch of 
the engineering industry that 
is on an upward trend. Like 
the mechanical sector, electri- 
cal engineering suffered a drop 
in employment at the end of 
the 1970s and continued 
throughout the recession. The 
difference between the two, 
however, is that employment 
in the electrical ride stabilized 
quickly at about 650,000 from 
1981 onwards while the tradi- 
tional merhaniml branch hag 
carried on felling. 

At the end of last year the 
number of workers in electri- 
cal engineering was an esti- 
mated 720,000 not fer short of 
the 1978 peak. But the me- 
chanical sector work force has 
dropped from one million in 
1979 to 775,000. 

Electronics is another sector 
where employment has been 
rising steadily jsmce 1982 to 
about 377,000 and now ac- 
counts fix* almost 20 per cent 
of engineering jobs. Signifi- 
cantly electronic companies in 
the UK now appear to be 
recruiting increased nnmbers 
of highly educated and trained 
people such as professional 
electrical engineers. 

Between 1980 and 1984 the 


numbers of office workers, 
supervisors and traditional 
craftsmen in electronics com- 
panies fell by over a fifth, but 
during the same period the 
number of scientists and tech- 
nologists went up by 36 per 
cent to 34,500. 

These are the people who 
are at work in design and 
development departments of 
companies around the world 
refining today's products and 
developing tomorrow’s. 


The information technology 


revolution is arguably — 
most important influence on 
electrical engineers. This is 
demonstrated fay the _ deep 
involvement of the IEE in the 
£350m Alvey programme, 
funded by three Government 
departments and industry it- 
self to stimulate British IT 
research. 

The Alvey team describe 
the five-i 


e five-year programme as a 
series of collaborative, pre- 
mpetitive projects which fit 


competitive projects 

into overall strategies which 
have been developed for the 
key technologies of intelligent 
knowledge based systems, the 
man-machine interface, soft- 
ware engineering, very large

ing architecture. 

More than 100 fall industri- 
al projects out of 550 propos- 
als have now been approved, 
involving 60 firms, 40 univer- 
sities, six polytechnics . and 
five Government research 

fj jphlidinwnK. 


Alvey, set up in response to 
e fifth generation 


the Japanese 
computer initiative, is seeking 
to explore ways in which these 
more powerful, bigger memo- 
ry computers can be exploited, 
particularly in manufacturing. 

The factory of the future 
undoubtedly will be the result 
of the work of the electrical 
and electronic engineers who 
will refine and harness the 
technology that has become 
known as computer integrated 
manufacturing (CIM). This 
drive for systems integration 
is dearly . emerging as the 
strongest influence on the 


in diagnoses, for example the 
electrocardiogram a nd the 
etectroencephalograffl-

for nerve stimulation and 
diagnosis of illness has been 
investigated - a "teihodmat

New imaging systems are 
being developed for use xn 
gastric physiology and m 
monitoring premature babies, 
while there is also growing 
interest in using, magnetic 
fields to help repair difficult 
bone fractures. Research rs 
being done into claims that 
electricity can help in the 
treatment of arthritis, burns, 
gout, wound healing, laryngi- 
tis and lumbago. 

But possibly the most excit- 
ing development of recent 4 ; 
years has been in nuclear 
magnetic resonance imaging 
for tissue scanning in suspect- 
ed cancer patients.This meth- 
od pioneered in Britain, is said 
to be of particular use in 
scanning the central nervous 
system. . , , . 

in the home, the work of the 
electrical engineer can be seen 
in a variety of ways. Advanced 

electronics are making possi- 
ble the totally automated, 
computerised house, 
equipped with security de- 
vices, fire detection and alarm 
systems, cooking and enter- 
tainment systems afl con- 
trolled by voice recognition 
machines. 

Fire detection systems have 
become far more reliable 
thanks to the work of electrical 
engineers using 

microprocessor-based data 
collection systems with ana- 
■ logue sensors. Thus false 
alarms can now be predicted 
before a real- false alarm 
occurs. 

In the home, high definition 
television is adding a new. 
dimension to smafi screen 
entertainment, while more re- 
liable, more compact video, 
tape recorders are being devel- 
oped along with ever-improv- 
ing high fidelity equipment 

The latest development, de- 
scribed tty the IEE as revolu- ** 
tionary, is the compact disc, 
invented by Philips of Hol- 
land and initially developed' 
and marketed Jointly with; 
'Sony of Japan. The disc has 


robotised

ing to determine the future.

a great British success. 


The Racal Electronics Group is a success story by any standards: a

Links forged with schools 


In education and training the 
Instit ution of Electrical Engi- 
neers (IEE) has not only been a 
pioneer but is continuing to 
.explore new ways of meeting 
problems. These can range 


from stimulating youngsters’ 
interests in professional engi- 
neering to keeping the mature 
engineer up to scratch. 

Its latest initiative has been 
Project UNCLE — undertak- 
ing new curriculum links with 
engineering — a scheme 
launched in Hampshire as a 
pilot experiment 18 months 
ago. The IEE has hopes that 
this will subsequently go 
national. 

Mr Howard Losty, the IEE 
secretary, said: “It is a way of 
getting electrical engineers 
into the schools, giving them 
help on new project work by 
creating a direct link/or them 
with engineers and industry 
which is so vital now technol- 
ogy is changing so swiftly. We 
would like to see an engineer 
associated with every second- 
ary school in the country. 1 ’ 

In Hampshire some 60 elec- 


trical engineers have been 
going to about 40 schools, 
paying visits of two to three 
days a month to each school, 
depending on the time of year. 
Funding has come from the 
Department of Trade and 
Industry. During the next 
academic year the scheme is 
being extended to the North 
East Cumbria, the West Mid- 
lands, Surrey and Northern 
Ireland. A decision is expected 
ax the end of the present 
academic year on whether to 
implement the project in the 
rest of the country. 

Mrs Dian ne Winfield, bead 
of the I EE's schools liaison 
service said: “So far the 
overall feeling tends to be that 
the project has proved very 
important and is providing an 
extremely useful resource to 
schools." 

. The IEE earlier than many, 
. perceived the problem of win- 
ning recognition for engineer- 
ing in a society which for 
generations had tended to 
respect only the arts and pure 
science. In 2975 the IEE set up

its schools liaison service to 
improve both the number and 
quality of students reading 
electrical engineering, as both 
were worryingly low. 

Numbers wanting to enter 
electrical engineering doubled 
in 10 years and the quality 
went up. The IEE now has 45 
schools liaison officers around 
the country backed up by a 
panel of about 600 institution 
members. They make visits to 
talk in the schools, help 
teachers with curriculum, set 
up trips to local factories and 
other industrial locations and 
pass on surplus equipment to 
schools for their use. 

Regular newsletters and 
conferences reinforce die liai- 
son service. 

Mrs Winfield said: “The 
service has dearly had an 
impact Now it is extremely 
difficult to keep up with the 
demand tor electrical engi- 
neering places.” Because of 
the acute shortage of mathe- 
matics and physics teachers in 
schools aspects of teacher 
training are now being looked 
at by the IEE. Teacher work- 
shops are also being set up to 
give an insight into a systems 
approach. 

Three times a year the IEE 
• produces 12,500 copies of a 
journal delivered free to sec- 
ondary schools, mostly with 
material written by teachers 
themselves on electronics and 
zomputer control. At Easter 

i Attempts to attract 
more women , 

some 350 teachers gave up 
their time to go to a confer- 
ence organized by the IEE. 

The institution has as part 
of its schools programme and 
in other ways been attempting 
to attract more women into 
the profession. In 1984 it had 
only 861 women members- 
and' although the number has 
risen to 1.484, this still repre- 
sents only 1.7 per cent of the 
IEE membership of some 
86 , 000 . 

An IEE survey of its women 
members in 1983 indicated 
where some of the problems 
lie. Even though 83 percent of 
girls go to coeducational sec- 
ondary schools, among the 
women who made their way 
into engineering 67 per cent 
were at giiis-only schools at 
the age of 16 and 58 per cent at 
the age of 18. 

Co-educational schools 
were not the only problem. 
Grammar schools were least 
well disposed towards electri- 
cal engineering and physics 
degrees. 

Employment prospects for 
women engineers were, on the 
other hand, found to be good. 
Only 1 5 per cent got fewer job 
offers than the number of 
applications they made. 

Derek Helps, deputy secre- 
tary of the IEE, said: “Electri- 
cal engineering is an ideal 
profession fora woman. There 
is no reason why a women 
should not be as good as. or 
better than, a man. Moreover 
a lot of electrical engineering, 
particularly in the software 
field, can be done as a cottage 
industry from home provided

Most questions answered at 
the world famous library 


a woman can be briefed on the 
latest developments.” 

He believes industry is 
adapting to the situation and 
accepting part-time work and 
career breaks at some stages of 
a woman's career. The Civil 
Service is now more willing to 
accept part-time working, he 
pointed out. Mrs Winfield 
said: “More women have been 
able to negotiate consultan- 
cies. Companies and others 
cannot afford to neglect all 
this talent." 

The IEE intends to continue 
to put on the pressure to bring 
home the attractions of engi- 
neering for women. The 
stream of conferences will 
continue and about 100 wom- 
en engineers are prepared to 
help in the various school 
schemes. 

The irony is that the more 
successful they are the more it 
underlines the {EE’s plea for 
academic places to be doubled 
for engineers. The 
Government's recent addition 
of £43 million more spending 
on new places will bring some 
amelioration but Mr Helps 
still does not see this as 
enough. 

As a qualifying body, setting 
academic standards for the 
professional /electrical engi- 
neer. the IEE at the chartered 
level { normally demands . a 
three-year university or peuy- 
techmc course followed by a 
minimum of two years’ practi- 
cal experience. Mr Helps said: 
“Ours effectively is a five-year 
course and produces a round- 
ed, practical engineer who has 
had to reach very high levels 
in the three academic years." 

But the IEE is in favour of 
extended courses which would 
enable the theoretical side of 
practical subjects like design 
io be covered. The IEE also 
maintains a quality control on 
universities and polytechnics 
by accreditation, carried out 
by invitation. Some colleges 
will get a foil five-year accredi- 
tation as a vote of confidence 
in what they are offering the 
fledgling engineer others per- 
haps only three years if stan- 
dards need a more careful eye 
on them. Approved so far 
have been 159 university i 
courses and 36 at polytech- • 
nics. For various reasons eight 
university courses and a doz- 
en at polytechnics failed to 
make the grade. 

Mr Helps said: “We are 
certainly improving stan- 
dards. A threat of not getting a 
course accredited can often 
help an academic department 
to secure the resources for 
improvement which it might 
otherwise not have been able 
to gel." 

Further establishments 
could be in danger of losing 

Extended courses 
to be introduced 

accreditation as problems 
mount over inadequate quali- 
ty of staff as better lecturers 
are lured away by improved 
opportunities in industry. 

As a learned society the IEE 
has always been in the busi- 
ness of keeping its members 
up with the latest develop- 
ments. Inspec and its other 
information systems carry 
that tradition forward. Meet- 
ings and conferences buttress 
these. An abstracts service 
monitors what is going on in 
all key countries of the world. 

Around 15 one-week 
courses during vacation peri- 
ods are organized to help keep 
mature engineers aware of the 
I latest developments in their 
i field. Distance learning is 
being expanded. 

Mr Helps said: “What we 
have is an alerting service. 

! The professional engineer can 
know what is going on in the 
world. The relevant informa- 
tion is in our data bank." 

He added: “It is seldom that 
a single person can make a 
crucial advance. It is in the 
cauldron of debate that a 
defined idea is produced. We 
provide a forum for that It 
may sound a bit grandiose but 
really we are a catalyst to- 
wards the march of progress." 


Britain's prowess in exporting 
its electrical engineering 
knowledge and products is too 
often eclipsed by the runaway 
success of imported consumer 
goods. 

While Japanese “laser 
marketing'' techniques bom- 
bard the country with calcula- 
tors, television sets, video tape 
recorders and other wizard 
electronic gadgets, and huge 
multinationals such as IBM 
dominate the computer mar- 
ket — Britain's electrical engi- 
neers are inventing, designing, 
developing and installing a 
wide and diverse range of 
electrical goods for export. 

The Institution of Electrical 
Engineers says the stringent 
academic and practical quali- 
fications required of profes- 
sional British electrical 
engineers result in their exper- 
tise and knowledge being in 
constant demand in many 
countries. 

Seemingly mundane but 
important proof is provided 
by the 15th edition of the 
institution's wiring regula- 
tions. These have set the 
standard for electrical wiring 
systems in buildings for 104 
years. This edition has been 
harmonized with European 
Commission regnla lions and 
is now regarded as the defini- 
tive international standard. 

The institution is often 
requested to accredit other 
countries* electrical engineer- 
ing courses. Despite the 
Government’s policy of de- 
manding that foreign students 
pay foil fees for their British 
.tuition, the institution re- 
mains the favourite for poten- 
tial young electrical engineers 
from as far afield as China and 
Iran. 

On the first floor of the 
institution’s imposing bead- 
quarters, a stone's throw from 
the Savoy Hotel in London, is 
its world famous library. 
There is a staff of 18, half of 
them graduates, who through 
links with 700 data bases can 
deal with the average 36,000 
enquiries received every year. 

More than 5,000 or the 
enquiries are from abroad, 
many of them seeking copies 
of learned documents. The 
library is reputed to be the best 
of its type in the world. 

The institution also oper- 
ates the world's most compre- 
hensive English language 
engineering data base, called

IN PEC (Information Services 
for the Physics and Engineer- 
ing Communities). 

Electrical and electronic en- 
gineering in Britain now is 
basking in the warmth of 
rising export success that has 
nearly wiped out the 
industry’s trade deficit. 

Since 1979 the total sales 
value of the depressed me- 
chanical engineering sector 
has risen by about 30 per cent 
to an estimated £18.788 mil- 
lion last year. But this is 
eclipsed by the increase in 
electrical and electronic sales 
of 89 per cent in the same 
period to £21.715 million. 

Export successes 
cut trade deficit 

On the export front, the 
picture for the electrical and 
electronic companies is 
patchy. While Britain export- 
ed more than £3 billion of 
electrical machinery — which 
includes anything from print- 
ed circuits and transformers to 
television tubes and batteries 
— imports rose to more than 
£4 billion. 

Healthy trade surpluses are 
now recorded in power gener- 
ating machinery, machinery 
for particular industries such 
as agricultural, excavating, 
sewing, textile, printing, wood 
working and glass . working 


machines, and industrial ma- 
chinery in general. But equally 
unhealthy deficits can be seen 
in the trading of telecommuni- 
cations equipment, TV and 
sound recording equipment, 
electrical machinery, office 
machines and computers and 
metal working machinery. 

The result last year was an 
overall deficit of just £338 
million, compared with £905 
million in 1984. 

Behind the figures are the 
wetl worn stories of great 
British successes, in particular 
the selling of power stations to 
the Chinese and the Indians. 
But there are the equally 
trumpeted failures, of high 
technology inventions exploit- 
ed overseas because of the lack 
of domestic risk takers and the 
notorious brain drain. 

Not so well documented is 
the work of consultants whose 
product is their expertise and 
knowledge. In most comers of 
the world the British consult- 
ing engineer can be found 
designing and supervising the 
building of new power sta- 
tions, telephone transmission 
systems, power systems for 
hospitals, waterworks, oil re- 
fineries and transport 
networks. 

About 20 per cent of UK 
consulting work is in the 
electrical and electronic fields 
and there are three major 
firms: Kennedy & Donkin .of 


Godaiming in Surrey, Meiz & 
McLellan of Newcastle, and 
Ewbank-Preese of Brighton. 
Together they account for 
about half the UK output. 

Electrical engineers from 
these and other companies are 
involved in designing, for 
example, supervisory control 
and data acquisition 
(5CADA) systems, the nerve 
centres of electrical, gas and 
water plants and the electrical 
control networks for public 
transport systems. 

Many are involved in con- 
sortia working on huge over- 
seas projects. ‘ Kennedy & 
Donkin, for example, is part of 
a 2 0-company group called 
British Metro Consultants 
Group, appointed five years 
ago to design a new $5 billion 
underground railway system 
for Baghdad. Electrical engi- 
neers are responsible for de- 
signing the electrical sub- 
stations for the railway and 
the overhead lines; and for 
laying down ibe performance 
specifications for the rolling 
stock and specifying the sig- 
nalling control systems, the air 
conditioning and controls and 
the heating, lighting and venti- 
lating systems for the station 
lifts. 

Maldwyn John, a partner in 
Kennedy & Donkin, says the 
institution qualification re- 
mains one of the most impor- 
tant attributes for an engineer 
working in Europe and the 
Middle East But the consul- 
tancy sector in Britain is 
finding increasing difficulty in 
recruiting and training the 
right type of engineers. 

One of the stumbling blocks 
has been nationalized industry 
which has tended to train its 
own engineers in-house. The 
arrival of privatization fever 
however, has lessened the 
security that many sought in 
the state industries. 

Mr John believes many of 
the best young people attract- 
ed to electrical engineering see 
the best salaries and prospects 
in the electronic sector. “But 
power is still needed, build- 
ings have to be lit and railways 
have to run. Good electrical 
engineers to design these sys- 
tems are going to become 
increasingly hard to find."

Alfa’s new Romeo takes a bow 


CAR BUYERS GUIDE 


Tozer, Kemslpy and 
Mill bourn's acquisition ' last 
month of the depressed Alfa 
Romeo cbocessibn m BStajs 
may lwn out-to be a-toucb-of : 
genius. When the news broke, 
however, there, were many in . 
the motor trade who tho ug ht - 
the big autoxDotiye group bad 
bitten . off more than it could 
chew by taking an SO p6r cent 
stake in a new company,' Alfe 
Romeo (Great Britain), with 
the Italian fectory holding the 
remaining 20 per cenL 
■ Alfa sales here collapsed 
from a peak of. 13,000 cars 
only six years ago to slightly, 
inore than 3,000 last yea t'. Its 

dealer network was aim felling 
apart. The number of model 
valiants imported was far too 
complicated to permit repre- 
sentative showroom stocks to 
beliebl and thi^ range-- still ; 
lacked a modem, sport saloon 
■in the traditional Alfa mould. . 

Since TKM took over, .two i 
si gnifican t things have ' hap- 
pened - Ford is negotiating for 
a- major shareholding in the 
state-owned Italian- company- 
and 'at long last the exerting ' 
‘Alfe 75 has reached Britain. 
Powered by an all-alloy four 
cylinder, 1.8 litre or bigger 2-5 


time of writing was stin in the 
negotiating stage and nothing 
can be taken for granted after 
the failure of its recent merger 
-talks with Hat and Austin 
Rover. But Alfe is very sick 
-with less than half its 400,000 
-oars a year capacity in use and 
urgently needs an injection of 
the American giant's pragma*- 
ic expertise. 

. . A merger would .bring, con- 
siderable advantages to both. 
Ford would, get the. prestige 
name it has long sought to 
provide entree to more profit- 
able up-market sectors and 
Alfe would get the partner ft 
need s for cost-saving joint 
ventures.

SEATs Malaga, bearing sales targets. 


V6, this replacement for the 
nine-year-old Giuhetta goes, 
on . sale here next week at a 
starting price of a little under 

£9 QQQ. 

The arrival of the 75 is the 
mosr important development 
in the short term. Whe at it wa s -

asm for the superb handling, 
road holding aim performance 
of this Cavalier-sized execu- 
tive saloon. The smaller en- 
gined version cruised happily 
on the Autostrada at 1 10. mph 
with power in.band, while the 
V6 showed an indicated 135 
mph for a brief time. It is just 
the type of car Alfe has been 
crying out for to restore , its 
battered image hoe.

^ Japanese cars have been on 
sale here Tot heady IS years 
now and many of ihe eariiest 
examples are inneed of expen- 
sive engine and :geaifiox re- 
placements. But the people in 
the know are getting them ala 
fraction of new prices - from 
scrapyards all over Japan. 

Stringent road test laws, 
combined with road taxes 
which increase with a car's 
age, mean that Japanese mo- 
torists scrap their cars at a 
much, earlier age in 
Britain. They have also a 
much lower mileage because

giving it 0.3 per cent of the 
market It is significant that in 
April, the last month of that 
period, its share rose to 034 
per cent, or 573 cars. That is 
twice as many as Alfe Romeo, 
winch has : 6een established 
here for many years. ' - 
. These figures are stiBpea- 
niiits compared with those of 
major importers like Nissan 
which bolds 6 per cent of the 
British market They are im- 
portant, , however, because 
they suggest that SEATs pub- 
lished target of 1 per cent 
(about 18,000 care) within 
three years has been set delib- 
erately low to take the heat out 
of the controversy still threat- 
ening to boil over about 
Spanish car imports. 

The S panish market is vir- 
tually closed, despite newly- 
acquilred membership of the 
EEC. butSpain has unfettered 
.access to the markets of 
Europe^ mdndnig Britain. 
Bamers. wittbe. progressively 
lifted; but it. will be at least 
another five years before rea- 
sonable equality is readied. 

Politics aside, the reasons 
for SEATs initial success here 
are clear. The genual quality 
of the two-model range is good 
and prices are very 
competitive. 

The Ibiza Supermini and 
the bigger Escort-dass Malaga 
are not exactly trendsetters, 
but they are cast firmly in the 
same -rather -stereotyped 


mould as the bulk of the 
competition. Safety first is not 
a bad strategy for any 
newcomer. 

SEAT sales literature makes 
great play of the Porsche 
designed 13 and 1.5 lean burn 
engines used in both models, 
but 1 was rather disappointed 
by the very. ' lumpy, cold 
running and excessive noise of 
the 13 engine in the Ibiza I 
tested nearly five months ago. 
I learned subs e quently that it 
had problems with the 
carburetter setting. That does

not surprise me. The System 
Porsche engines operate on an 
unusually weak mixture of 
around one part petrol to 16 
parts air. 

The 13 unit in the Malaga 
tiatohharir I have just driven 
for a week was much better, 
but still ran hesitantly for the 
first couple of miles. Once into 
its stride, however, it deliv- 
ered its power smoothly.to the 
accompaniment of a pleasant- 
ly robust exhaust not& 

Inside, much thought has 
been given to the layout of 
switches. They are grouped to 
the right, and left of the 
steering column in two fiat 
binnacles - a development 
pioneered by Citroen many 
years ago. Unfortunately they 
are tucked under the steering 
wheel and partially blocked by 
the thick spokes. 

The seats are firm in the 
German pattern and the whole 
car feels strong and well built

Fresh in the.Euung C3rairh 
Anniversary Stakes at New- 
market today , to see if she is 
tbe sort Kfcriy to wo ®e 
coveted Queen Mary Slate at 
Royal Ascot next momn. Fffl - 
th at is precisely what she 
looked at Newmarket at the 
beginning of this month when 
she streaked home Tv seven 
.lengths to win a race confined 
to maidens in a much faster - 
.time . than the smtHt ’ Qnd 
Esprit had taken /to. bear 
Mster Majestic over tte same 
course distance only has 
an hour earliest - * . 

Now the difference is that . 
Naturally Resh will be talcing 
on other winners as wdl as 
giving plenty of weigh* to 
maidens, whereas before die 
was simply carrying the same. ; 
weight as others . who bad 
never won. What cannot be 
disputed is the fact that her 
farm Iras worked out well. 

I will be disappointed if she 
fails to drew attention to xbe 
observation that sheer, wight 
of money does not guarantee 
success. /For when. die. was 
bought as a yeariing. Naturally 
Fresh cost only 6,000 guineas, 
whereas Lashing, one of her 
rivals this afternoon, ebangpd . 
hands for £450,000, which is 
the going rate on the interna- 
tional market in Kentucky 
where she was bred. 

Later in fire afternoon, it fa 
hoped that EBF Ashley Maid- 
en Stakes win also shed some 
light on one of Royal Ascot's 
more significant races, just as 
it did 12 months ago when 
Sure Blade went on to win the 
Coventry Stakes having 
scored on his debut on this 
corresponding occasion. 

- This time, I have a good tip 
for Brave Dancer, Guy - 
Harwood's first two-year-old 
Tiinner ofthe season. He is one - 
of the first crop of the yotmg 
Mill Reef stallions, Pas De 
Seal, who was a good two- ~ 


yem’-old himsdfbeftHe a hair- 
Hne fractare of the offTore 
rgnwm h nn e required pinning 
intbeantnanofS^ 

. As far as the DBA.t 
Queensbury FStksT State is^ 
concerned, 1 am content to 
give Bqd Nasd another 
chamice even tbo^i she let the 
side down taffiy when die was 
made favourite for the race 
that Zataxia. won. on the ojRa- 
i ug day of the Craven meeting, 
it transpired that Royal Nog- 
get was in season that day, 
which exjdains why she 
dtapjied away so tamely to- 
wards the end. Last year, she 
wasruzmer-^toKiE^5cotrat 
Ascot, and second too behind 
Ala Mahfik at Salisbury. And 
i Hpi & rode soSd form, in 
receipt of weight, she should 
beat Zalatia and Meteonc at 
her best ^ 

At Tfahsk, bier stride com- 
panion, SaatDd, will be ex- 
pected to break her duck inthe 
Hmire Maiden Fillies' Stakes 
especially if form- in two 
riatw* trials means anything 
at aft. For Samilri began the 
.season by fmnhnig second to 
the Oaks hope, Gezedeh in the 
Pretty PoHy Stakes at New. 
mate. Then rite filled fourth 
pface m the Musdora Shakes 
at Yoric, bat only dme lengths 
behind another Oaks candi- 
date. Rejuvenate. 

Still at Think, l dank that 
the Lambourn xaoder, Aadga 
Soda, should manage to beat 
the other unbeaten colts, 
Count Treviso and Ffauriey, in 
the DSRM Sporting Salver 
Stakes. For when he won first 
time out ait Salisbury, Amigo 
Socio beat two sub se quent 
winners. Singing Steven and 
MunaaszbL 

As for the day’s nap. that fa 
entrusted to I Got Stung to 
give 5tb to Ehabw's promis- 
ing young sister, Sunyiyn, m 
the Coopers Champion Nov- 
ice Hunters’ Chase at Strat-

Crucial Sunday gallop 

Brave 


•Sr ■» v ■■

. . -Dancing. Brsve wiB.be gal- 
loped at Pulborough on Sun- 
day to determine wbetber 
Khaled Abdulla's impressive 
2,000 Guineas winner is fit id 
lake his chance in next 
Wednesday's Derby. 

On Wednesday Guy 
* Harwood announced that 
Dancing Brave had knocked a 
bone in a joint below the knee 
and had lost a small piece of 
skin. Yesterday the Sussex 
trainer saidiTl still don’t think 
. .that it is :very serious, and 
.'providing - Dancing Brave 
works satisfactorily, GreviBe 
Starkey will .still tide the colt 
.. inline Derby.** \ 

Confirming that Aflez Mi- 
lord and Bakharoff had given 
every s&tis&ction in their 
preparation for the premier 
■ ; cfassic, Harwood cootmixed: 
“Only in the event of Dancing 
Brave being withdrawn. 


By Michael Seely 
would Bakharoff be an- 
nounced as a runner on Sun- 
day. Otherwise the situation, 
will remain ‘the same. 
Bakharoff win be declared at 
the four-day stage of accep- 
tors, but will only be in the 
line-up in the event of soft 
going at Epsom." 

Backers of Dancing Brave 
need not yet lose hope. De- 
spite die well-known saying 
that big races are seldom won 
on interrupted preparations, 
the Lyphard colt wm already 
be a finely-tuned athlete and 
was cm the best of terms with 
himself after cantering yester- 
daymonting. There is, after all 
a recent . precedent. 
Commancbe Run bruised his 
knee a few days before die 
1984 St Leger, but recovered 
in time to rave Lester Piggott 
his record 28th British classic 
win. 


A decision will be taken on 
Saturday morning as to 
whether Pat Eddery win be 
required to ride Wise Counsel- 
lor for Vincent O'Brien or will 
be free to take the mount on 
Bold Arrangement. At the 
moment it looks as though the 
former champion will be on 
Wise Counsellor, as after a 
single bet of £5,000 each way 
at 25-1 with William Hill, the 
price of the Alleged colt was 
cut to 14-1. 

"Now Fm just waiting and 
hoping,” Clive Brittain. Bold 
Arrangement's trainer, said. 
“Pat has committed himself to 
my horse if he's free. But 
naturally I win now have to 
get in touch with Chris 
McCarron, who is on standby, 
and give him an update on the 
situation." 

Other Derby news yesterday 
was that Richard Quinn has

• An appeal by Brian Procter 
against a £150 fine for riding 
an ill-judged race on the 
Queen's Red Shoes was up- 


held by the Jockey Club's 
disciplinary committee yester- 
day. The Salisbury stewards 
imposed the fine after Procter 
finished third on the three-

HORSE SHOW 

Oliver is 
again 
a success 

By a Correspondent 

Robert Oliver added to his list 
of successes at the Royal Bath 
and West Show yesterday when 
he won the large hack class on 
his own seven-year-okl. Rye 
Tangle, the 1985 Leading Hack 
of the Year, and then took the 
championship. The small hack 
winner, Osborne Refrigeration 
Russian Heights was reserve. 
Robert had won the Ridden 
Hunter championship with The 
Handyman the day before. 

The championship in the 
pony breeding classes went to 
Carolines Kitten, a three-year- 
old filly owned by Mr and Mrs 
Leu Bigley. 

Roy Trigg rode racehorse 
trainer John Dunlop’s six year

Sussex’s ambition 
sinks with Imran 

By John Woodcock, Cricket Correspondent 

LORD "S: Middlesex beat Sussex ~ 

by 84 runs. 

' Middlesex had plenty to spare 
in beating Sussex yesterday and 
so qualifying to meet Not- 
tinghamshire in the semi-finals 


of the Benson and Hedges Cup 
at Lord's on June !1. Chasing 
Z57. Sussex were bowled out for 
172 in 48 overs. Rather than 
Cowans taking the gold award, 
for picking up three good wick- 
ets in the first boor yesterday, it 
went to Butcher, who had made 
an excellent 65 Tor Middlesex on 
Wednesday. 

Sussex quite fancied their 
chances of making the runs they 
needed- It was a perfectly good 
pitch, not without pace. But 
Cowans had Lenham and Gould 
caught at the wicket, and Green 
in die gully. He also had Imran 
dropped at first slip when he was 
one, a sharp chance to Radley's 
left. When, as now, Cowans 
finds the right line and collects 
an early wicket, he does bowl 
very well. 

Twice Sussex looked as 
though they might be going to 
make a game of it: first when 
Green and Parker were adding 
32 for the second wicket: then 
when Imran and Wells put on 55 
for the fifth. But first Parker was 
run out, then Wells. Parker hit 
Cowans straight to Gatling at 
mid-off, and ran. _ It was an 
aberration, and with lime to 
take aim from no more than 1 0 
yards Gal ting threw out the 
middle stump at the bowler's 
end. 

Wells and Imran were giving 
Middlesex cause for some con- 
cern — they are both among the 
best hitlers of the ball in the 
country — when Wells, sent hack 
by Imran, was run out at the 
bowler's end. A rather untidy 
return from Radley to Emburey 
was just good enough. It had 
been Imran's call, the ball going 
just in from or the square-leg 
umpire, and although there was 
probably a nm there it would, at 
best, have been tight. 

At lunch, Sussex were 1 14 for 


Kent have to 
travel again 

The draw for the semi-finals 
of the Bensoa and Hedges Cup 
was made at Lord's yesterday 
morning. At the time only Kent, 
who woo at Derby on Wednes- 
day, were certain of their place 
in the next round, and they were 
given another away draw. Kent, 
looking to win the Benson and 
Hedges Cop for a record fourth 
time, will face Worcestershire 
on June 12. 

Meanwhile, Middlesex, by 
beating Sussex, earned them- 
selves another home tie, a g ai ns t 
Nottinghamshire, who had ear- 
lier woo at Chelmsford. 
SEMI-FINAL DRAW: Middlesex v 
Nottinghamshire (Lord's); 
Worcestershire v Kent (Worces- 
ter). Ties to be played on June 11. 

five with 22 overs left, and 
Imran 29 not out. Soon after- 
wards, Edmonds bowled 1c 
Roux and Reeve. Imran, a 
towering figure in this Sussex 
side, was leg- before taking a 
liberty with DanieL and all that 
was left after that were a couple 
of soaring sixes by Jones ofl 
Edmonds, one on to the free 
seats. Middlesex could reflect on 
a thoroughly competent perfor- 
mance. Put in on Wednesday, 
they had had to play well to win.

dilemma 
for Hick 

By Richard Streeton 

WORCESTER: Worcestershire 
heal Northamptonshire by eight 
wickets. 

An auihoritive third-wicket 
stand between Graeme Hick 
and David Smith took 
Worcestershire to a command- 
ing victory yesterday and 
brought them a Benson and 
Hedges semi-final match at 
home against Kent on June 1 1. 
Hick launched into an array of 
regal strokes as the match 
neared its end and won the gold 
award. 

Hick and Smith shared an 
unbroken partnership of 179 in 
31 overs against 
Northamptonshire's modest 
bowling and paced their effort 


sweet 
for Notts 

By I vo Tennant 

CHELMSFORD: Nottingham- 
shire beat Essex by three wickets. 

Nottinghamshire, propelled 
by splendid all-round _ perfor- 
mances from Clive Rice and 
Richard Hadlee, gained some 
recompense for their defeat by 
Essex in the NatWesi final last 
year. A Benson and Hedges 
semi-final place was achieved 
with 23 balls to spare. 

It was less overcast than on 
Wednesday, which made- bat- 
ting easier. Nevertheless, Not- 
tinghamshire were made to 
work hard for their victory, at 
least until Hadlee came in. 
Timing his shots superbly, he 
made 61 off 57 ballsand won the 
match in the grand way, with a 


with shrewd judgement Only a straight six. 

. . ... Nottinghamshire had re- 

sumed needing 1 57 to win off 44 


fortnight earlier Hick and Smith 
added 190 together to bring a 
similarly crushing win against

Maple Leafs 
so copybook 

By John Watson 
The six-ebukka match for the 
Aramis Trophy, which was 
played off at Smith’s Lawn, 
Windsor, yesterday, resulted in 
a 9-4 victory for Galem 
Weston’s Maple Leals, who’ 
received one against _ Guy 
Wildenstein’s Les Diables 
Bleus. 

Considering this was the Ma- 
ple Leafs 1986 debut in higb- 
goal polo, they played a very 
observant and successful squad 
game, passing, backing op and 
positioning in copybook man- 
ner, with Julian Hipwood and 
Tony Devdch (both magnifi- 
cently mounted by Weston) 
forming a most effective duo. 
Andrew SeaviUL, playing at back 
in his first ever high goal match, 
galloped extremely hard to mark 
his man and meet the ball and 
was as good in attack as defence. 

For Lbs Diables the 10 -goal 
Mexican, Memo Gracida. 
seemed to dominate the first 
two or three chukkas. but both 
be and his fellow Latin Ameri- 
can, Ricardo Vial missed a 
great many goal shots. As the 
Maple Leafs got into their stride 
in the second half of the match. 
Gracida and Vial were much 
less prominent.

Nottinghamshire in a zonal 
game. .. 

Hick now has to decide 
whether to play for his native 
Zimbabwe in the ICC trophy, 
which starts the same day as the 
Benson and Hedges semi-finals 
tnLp place. Hick will make his 
choice during the next few days. 
He was already wavering about 
representing Zimbabwe again 
because it would binder his 
ambition to qualify for England. 

Yesterday. Hick, who was 20 
last week, did not make an error 
during his innings. Perfectly 
timed drives and pulls, mostly 
on the from foot, brought him 
the majority of his runs. Like all 
gifted players he sees the ball 
early and is versatile in his 
choice of stroke. 

Smith survived a difficult 
chance to long-on against Cook, 
when he was 29 and the total 86. 
Otherwise he was equally 
impressive as his partner, fre- 
quently driving with great 
power. 

Worcestershire resumed 
needing 182 turn 34 3 overs, 
with nine wickets in hand, and 
lost D’Oliveira to the eighth ball 
of the day. D’Oliveira tried to 
hit across Cook's spin and edged 
a catch to deep backward poinL 
After this, though. Worcester- 
shire assumed complete control. 

For a long time the required 
rate stayed between six and 
seven runs an over, until Hick 
cut loose with 46 wanted from 
seven overs. He moved from 75 
to 100 in six scoring strokes 
against Capel and Walker and 
Worcestershire finally won with 
16 bails to spare.

FOOTBALL: FITNESS AN ISSUE AS DIXON, HODGE AND WOODS INSPIRE VICTORY AGAINST SWIFT MONTERREY 

England win but casualties mount 


SPORTS 
COMMENTARY 



•rsa 


David Miller 


Mexico City 

All the evidence from 
England's camp suggests that 
Bryan Robson should, reluc- 
tantly, have been sent home by 
his manager immediately after 
be had to come off because of a 
- minor collision against Mexi- 
co in Los Angeles. More to the 
point, he should never have 
been in thesqttad. 

It is abundantly dear that 
with three injuries — Achilles 
tendon, hamstring and shoul- 
der — he has little chance of 
playing to his full capacity in 
the World Cup; and, very 
likely, little chance of playing 
at aU. We are now seeing the 
folly of the unfortunate 
Robson's dnb manager, Ron 
Atirinsoo, who months ago 
should, in my view, have 
protected his captain from his 
own courage and sent him for 
an operation. Instead. Atkin- 
son appeared to believe that 
_ even a half-fit player might 
rescue Manchester United’s 

- championship challenge. 

It is the responsibility of 
managers to guard players 
‘ from their own ambitions. 
Bobby Robson has been con- 
fronted with the same dilemma 
and has, unwisely I believe, 
opted for the same procrasti- 
~ nation, though out of soft- 

• heartedness. It is nonsense to 
say that any “ordinary" player 

- would have been sent home in 

A better chance 
for understudies 

Bryan Robson's condition. If 
the captain is unfit, be is even 

- less than ordinary. 

To keep him on the sidelines 

- is a distraction for, and detrac- 
tion from the abilities of, the 
rest of the squad. The manager 
should have accepted that his 
captain could not reasonably 
be expected to contribute prop- 
erly to the campaign and 

■ -should have sent him home to 
allow him to make proper 
recovery for Manchester Unit- 
ed for next season. The man- 
ager should then have said to 
the others that they now had 
the challenge of malting the 
best of it Hodge, who has 
promise, would be a better 
understedy if he knew for sure 
the place was his. Nobody 
likes to be playing courtesy of 
a hobbling spectator. 

There is much to be satisfied 
. about England's form, but it is 
less convincing than it may 
appear. There are Inconsisten- 
cies. A year ago it was being 
claimed that England could 
not possibly win the World 
Cup without Bryan Robson. 
Now it is being claimed they 
can. Such a transformation is 
hardly realistic. 

* f think the manager was ill- 
advised to pvt pressure on his 
regular right back. Stereos, 
before the match against Can- 
ada. saying he had to play 
outstandingly well to keep bis 
place. A few days before the 
World Cup, players do not 
need this kind of intensity 
from their own manager. 


Threat to British 
status recedes 


The threat to Britain's sta- 
tus within FIFA, posed by 
Africa's demands for the four 
British associations to have 
only one vote in Congress, to 
lose their vice-president, and 
\ for the Third World's mem- 
bership of the executive com- 
mittee to be doubled, receded 
• at yesterday's Congress when 
7 all the proposals were with- 
drawn at the last minute. 

They are to be discussed 
. over the next two years in a 
general revision of statutes. 
. This has defused the situation. 
There is no encouragement, 
bonder, for those who believe 
; that the laws urgently need 
revision to liberate lbe game 
from a defensive stranglehold 
which is progressively helping 
to depress domestic football's 
attraction. This dedine was 

- acknowledged in the report to 
Congress by Sepp Blatter, the 

- general secretary, saying that 
‘ FIFA is "nntmitting in its 

■ offensive against violence in 
V play". Yet restrictive, tactical 
_ fool play needs change in the 

- laws, not superhuman refer- 

^Haveiange's conference was 
*- foil of contradiction. He says 
the World Cnp can live with 24 
teams, yet Congress have ao- 
. thorued the executive to in ves- 
tigate the possibilities of join I 
hosting by two countries in, 

■ s»y, Scandinavia or the low 
‘ countries. And a sinister note 

was thrown over the present 
competition when Guillermo 
faded a. a vice-president and 
chairman of the Mexican or- 
*- g anging committee, said that 
the costs and profit or low 
were not disclosed because rt 
' taS -a private enterprise . 

That is what we have been 
_ complaining about Tor three 
: years since Mexico were 
appointed. 


England are still unbeaten 
on their march to Mexico 
City, although the men in 
Bobby Robson's side are fell- 
ing almost as regularly as the 
opposition. Monterrey, the 
champions of Mexico this 
season, were beaten 4-1 at a 
training camp on a breezy 
plateau just outside the city. 
But Trevor Steven, Peter Reid 
and Mark Hatcley joined the 
casualty list before a ball was 
kicked and Viv Anderson was 
added before the final whistle. 

Hateley has a slight calf 
strain. Steven a chill and Reid 
an ankle injury. Anderson, 
after giving another useful 
performance and playing the 
lead role in a splendid goal 
limped off with a groin strain. 
England enjoyed some good 
moments on a bumpy pitch; 
generally, however, they 
achieved just enough to make 
certain that the local 
favourites were added to their 
list of May victims. 

Dixon applied the finishing 
touch to two good moves and 
hit the post with an attempt 
for a third goal. Barnes made 
no major contribution apart 
from his goal and Stevens 
proved his versatility when he 
switched from central defence 
to midfield in the second half 
to score the fourth goal. 

Carelessness allowed 
Becerra to equalize Dixon's 
opening goal within a minute, 
and Woods produced two 
good saves to deny the home 
team further goals. Twice the 
goalkeeper left his line to drop 
bravely at the feet of players 
whose speed bad burst 
through the defence. Woods 
also looked comfortable han- 
dling several crosses. 

Another bright spot for 
England was the form of 
Hodge. The midfield player, 
of Aston Villa, was busy, 
confident and involved for the 
entire match. With England's 
midfield problems the hope 
must be that Hodge slays clear 
of injury and keeps his form. 
“We know he has a good 
engine and today he showed 
that it is well tuned-up." 
Robson said. 

England, who used Wind ns 
and Hoddie in the first half 
and Butcher and Sansom in 
the second hall finished 
strongly in what had been 
planned as a reserve fixture. 
England never quite matched 
the speed of Monterrey. “We 
will not ease up our training 
yeL It has to be hard and there 
will be at least two more days 
of hard work." Robson added.

‘Unfairness’ makes 
Oakes retire 


By David Powell 

Judy Oakes. England's 
Commonwealth champion shot 
putter, is to retire at the end of 
the season because, she says, she 
has been unfairly treated as an 
international competitor. Miss 
Oakes, aged 2S. will defend her 
Commonwealth title in Edin- 
burgh in July and will then try to 
win a European championship 
medal the following month as 
I the valediction to an 11 -year 
career representing her country. 

It was only last Sunday that 
Miss Oakes, who was fourth in 
the Los Angeles Olympics, be- 
came the first Briton to putt 19 
metres outdoors. Recording ex- 
actly that distance, she was 
upset at the scam publicity she 
received for her eflons on an 
otherwise ordinary day at the 
United Kingdom champion- 
ships in Cwmbran. Thai was the 
latest blow tn her morale which 
had already suffered on two 
counts this year. 

\i the UK indoor champion- 
ship at Cosford the best female 
performer of the meeting award 
was presented to Zola Budd 
even before Miss Oakes's event 
had been completed. The Croy- 
don Harrier then proceeded to 
win her eighth indoor tide, a feat 
I previously achieved only by 
Mike Bull, the pole vaulter. and 
Verona Elder, the 400 metres 
runner, while setting a 
championship best performance 
of 1 8. 1 1 metres into the bargain. 

More significantly, however, 
the subventions announced in 
February by the British Ama- 



Oakes: her last season 

teur Athletic Board and Ama- 
teur Athletic Association fot 
athletes competing in any of the 
seven British Athletics Promo* 
lions Unit meetings this sum- 
mer left Miss Oakes in the 
second lowest of eight categories 
of payment. “I can’t afford to do 
athletics toll time any more." 
she said. “Under the new pack- 
age I am not worth much — £200 
3 meeting — and. as 1 under- 
stand iL there are only two 
meetings for which I qualify this 
year." 

Through the scheme, which is 
based primarily on world 
rankings. Sieve Cram will re- 
ceive £12.000 for each appear- 
ance. Sebastian Coe. Tessa 
Sanderson and Fatima 
Whitbread £10.000 and Miss 
Budd £5.000. “You get very 
upset when you see money going 
into one side of the sport and 
not another," Miss Oakes said. 


Money is not the problem 
with Brazil. They are rift by 
personality disputes between 
Tele Santana, the manager, 
and his senior players Zico, 
Socrates and Fakao, who are 
trying to pick the team. 

Sanatana has stopped 
speaking to the press, and 
there seems to be the classic 
Brazilian situation of being 
undecided whether to stand by 
their old men or to bank on the 
youngsters. The old men faded 
to save them in 1966. 

• Whether Brazil mighr stage 
the World Cop in 1994 was 
questioned yesterday by Joao 
Havelaage, the president of 
FIFA, when he said it would 


Confusion 
over ‘lost’ 
Russians 

From Pat Butcher 
Athletics Correspondent 
San Jose 

The Soviet athletes evidently 
did not know the way hoe. 
Either that or they are not 
coming. The press conference 
scheduled for the seven Soviet 
athletes dee to compete ia the 
first MobO Grand Prix meeting 
of the season tomorrow had to be 
cancelled when they tailed to 
nuke their original landfall m 
Washington on Wednesday. 

The fact that Soviet Embassy 
officials were at the airport to 
greet them lent credence to the 
possibility that they were taking 
the traditional circuit oos route. 
A previous Soviet group bound 
for New York had turned op in 
Toronto. Bat then, when they 
did not tarn op the following day 
either, beads started to shake 
and tongnes to wag. 

It does not take much to make 
an American suspicious about a 
Russian, give or take a unclear 
dond or two. And the feet that 
Tatyana Kazaakina was one of 
the athletes, doe to make her 
comeback after a doping suspen- 
sion, became the likely can- 
didate tor their absence. 

The local media had reacted 
whh disbelief at Kazankina's 
entry here. And Linz de 


all depend on Government 
appro vaL It seems that die 

football obsession in Brazil no 
longer rises to ministerial 
level. 

Rummenigge fit 

The West German captain, 
Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, who 
has been troubled by a knee 
injury said yesterday the knee 
was no longer painful and he 
expected to be fit to play in 
next Wednesday's opening 
Group E game against 
Uruguay. 

Restart plan 

The Middlesbrough Foot- 
ball Gub directors feel there is 
“a good chance" that football 
will be played at Ayresome 
Park in the coining season 
eves though the dub is to go 
into liquidation with debts of 
more than £1 million. A 
provisional liquidator will be 
appointed to keep the players 
together and to protect the 
assets of the club. The team 
were relegated to the third 
division when they lost their 
final match of the season at 
Shrewsbury. 


Mexico City (Reuter) — Mex- 
ico. the World Cup hosts, and 
Uruguay were each fined $5,500 
.(about £3.500) yesterday be- 
cause of a brawl after an 
international match in Los An- 
geles on April 13. Hie disci- 
plinary committee of FIFA also 
imposed a fine of $2,750 on the 
United States football federa- 
tion for inadequate security 
measures. 

The match, which Mexico 
won 1-0, had been bad tempered 
throughout and Angelo BrazzL 
the referee, was unable to pre- 
vent fighting among players 
behind one goal at the final 
whistle, after Uruguay had been 
denied an 83rd-mmute equal- 
izer. The brawl lasted several 
minutes and a number of play- 
ers were injured. 

• Torino have agreed to pay 
Bournemouth a £30.000 deposit 
on a £300,000 deal for Colin 
Clarke, the 23-year-okl forward 
currently in Mexico with North- 
ern Ireland. Clarice, who scored 
35 goals in the third division last 
season, said: “It's a -fantastic 
deal, but I don't want to sign far 
anyone yeL If I do well in the 
next few weeks a lot more 
people may bid for me and it's 
only fair to myself to wait.”

From Paul Martin 
Johannesburg 

Andy Dalton, captain of the 
unauthorized New Zealand tour 
of South Africa, has warned 
international rugby admin- 
istrators that unless immediate 
efforts are made towards 
reconciliation with South Af- 
rica. world rugby feces dis- 
integration. He said that unless 
countries now agreed to send 
official teams “South Africa has 
got no option but to go pro- 
fessional and buy players to 
come out here". 

He feels the present lour has 
“put a lot of pressure” on the 
game's administration. Indeed, 
it will not comfort them to learn 
that the winners of next year's 
worid tournament are to be 
invited to undertake a three- 
match series against the Spring- 
boks immediately afterwards. A 
sponsor has stepped forward for 
such a challenge series — the 
United Building Society — 
which sees mileage in a series 
lasting just two or three weeks to 
determine the “real" worid 
champions. 

They would contribute about 
half of the 2.5 million rand 


rounds at Alexandra Pavilion, 
north London on Wednesday 
night, would box Oliva for 
nothing if it was possible. There 
is nothing he wants more than to 
meet Oliva. Not only does be 
believe that be has the stamina 
and skill to outstay and outbox 
the Italian over 15 rounds, he 
has something to prove to those 
England selectors who left him 
out of the Moscow Olympic 
Games — even though he was 
ABA champion — and gave his 
place to Joey Frost, the man he 
beat in the semi-finals. 

“I have not forgotten thaL I 
beat Frost in the semis and they 
wanted me to have a fight-off. I 
said no. Oliva received the 
award for the best boxer of the 
Olympics. That is why 1 want to 
fight him so badly. Oliva is a 
very good boxer but 1 believe 1 
am lus equal and I know 1 can 
outlast him.” Marsh said.

FRIDAY MAY 30 1986 


Support of the 
public 

helps Botham 


SPORT 


By John Woodcock, Cricket Correspondent 


Ian Botham's suspension by 
the disciplinary committee of 
the Test and County Cricket 
Board (TCCB) from all-first 
class cricket until July 31 
means that he will miss all 
three Test matches against 
India as well as the first Test 
against New Zealand. He will, 
however, be able to play for 
Somerset's second XI, al- 
though their cricket, too. 
Gomes under the auspices of 
the TCCB, and in any other 
games that come his way. He 
should have no difficulty in 
finding plenty of these. 

Botham was judged only on 
his recent admission in The 
Mail on Sunday that he 
occasionally smoked cannabis 
when he was a younger man 
(albeit already an internation- 
al cricketer) and that he bad 


lied to the board when saying 
that he had not. The disciplin- 
ary committee decided, in 
view of his suspension arising 
from the charges concerning 
cannabis, that they would not 
pursue the fourth charge, 
namely that he “was guilty of 
making a public pronounce- 
ment without the consent of 
his county, Somerset”. 

The Cricket Council will 
meet “at the earliest 
opportunity” to consider 
Botham's appeal, although the 
impression which his solicitor 
gave upon leaving Lord's yes- 
terday was that he and his 
client had not finally decided 
whether to lodge one. To have 
given Botham a stiffer sen- 
tence, the board may have felt 
they needed harder evidence 
than they had managed to 


assemble. Whether sub-con- 
sciously or not, they probably 
took into account the public 
support which Botham enjoys, 
as well, as his value to the 
game as an entertainer. 

The Indians can be heartily 
relieved that they will not 
have to bowl to him this 
summer, if disappointed that 
they will not, on his recent 
form with the ball, be able to 
bat against him. In 1982, when 
they were last here, he scored 
128 in the second of the three 
Test matches, at Old Traffotd, 
followed by 208 at the OvaL 
Between the end of his suspen- 
sion on July 31 and the time 
the team for the first Test 
match against New Zealand is 
chosen these is, in fact, no 
first-class cricket in the 
country. 


Ireland nine runs Notts beat 
short of history 


By George Ace 


DOVt’NPA TRICK: The Indians 
beat Ireland by 9 runs. 

The Indians, one-day world 
champions, had to call on all 
their considerabteeapcrtise to 
overcome Ireland at Down- 
patrick yesterday and claimihe 
Cawoods Trophy. India scored 
210 for seven off their 55 overs 
and Ireland needed 16 runs off 
the last six balls with five 
wickets remaining, but Garth 
was caught on the boundary off 
the second ball and hopes ofan 
historic victory followed him 
into the pavilion. 

A sparkling innings of 61 by 
Palil changed the score dramati- 
cally after the Indians had lost 
three wickets for 75 runs off 30 
overs. In the 38th over Palil 
decided to open his shoulders, 
and ia all hit five sixes and two 
fours in devastating style. Six, 
four, six came off successive 
balls from the hapless McBrine, 
who had bowled his left-arm 
spinners prior to this assault 
with commendable accuracy 
and economy. He had lured 
Pandit out of his crease to 
enable Jackson, with a slick 
stumping, to dismiss the stub- 
born opening bat for 44. 

The wicketkeeper had pre- 
viously removed Lamba with a 
magnificent diving catch to his 
left He completed a fine 
morning’s work by stumping 
Paul off Halliday. 

For the second consecutive 
day. Garth, bowling medium 


pace, took the prize wicket of 
Azharuddin. On Wednesday 
Azharuddin fell to his second 
ball. Yesterday Azharuddin des- 
patched his first delivery, a no- 
balL to the boundary and was 
caught off the next at mid-off for 
II. vengsarkar hit a fluent 46 
Ireland made a splendid start 
with Masood and Warke putting 
on 75 runs

bane 
of Essex 

Nottinghamshire, helped by 
a dashing 61 not out by 
Richard Hadlee and a more 
solid half century from dive 
Rice, their captain, finally 
overcame Essex at Chelms- 
ford yesterday. A three-wicket 
win put them into the semi- 
finals of the Benson and 
Hedges Cup, but they have to 
travel again, this time to 
Lord’s to lace Middlesex. 

Rice, whose SO followed 
five for 48 to earn him the gold 
award, said: “We play well 
there, and it will be good 
practice for the final.” 
Hadlee's swashbuckling in- 
nings included three sixes and 
six fours off 57 balls. 

Middlesex overwhelmed 
Sussex at Lord’s by 84 runs 
after bowling them out for 
172. Norman Cowans and 
Phil Edmonds each took three 
wickets, but the man-of-the- 
matcb award went to Roland 
Butcher for his 6S. 

The other semi-final — both 
to be played on June 11 —will 
be between Worcestershire 
and Kent at New Road. 

Kent were the only county 
to win yesterday, and Worces- 
tershire soon swept into the 
last four with an eight-wicket 
win against Northampton- 
shire.

As he had done the previous |

to begin the steep, cobble-

Clarke’s 

appeal 

Ray Clarke, the secretary of 
the British Boxing Board of 
Control, who retires on Mon- 
day after 14 years in the post, 
appealed to the Government 
yesterday to exdude sporting 
I organizations from the Re>- 
stnetive Practices Act. “All we 
get are writs saying 'you are 
stopping me making my 
living.’ The sooner these 
threats are removed the better 
for sport." he said. 

Clarke, who will remain as 
consultant to the board and 
chairman of the referees' com- 
mittee, warned television that 
it was not the lifeline of boxing 
and that the sport could 
survive without it despite the 
big money it pays to televise 
contests-Tbe new secretary 
will be John Morris, a journal- 
ist from Northamptonshire:

taken over for a year by the 
City Council - a gesture worth 
£70,000. But the former Swan- 
sea chairman Doug Sharpe, 
who has been leading the 
dub's struggle for survival, 
said it was not enough. “I’m 
disappointed,” he said. “I 
need £120.000 in cash. I have 
now no alternative but to tell 
the Receiver today that I 
cannot meet the High Court's 
financial requirements to keep 
the dub in being. I have lost 
£135.000. I think I've done 
enough. 1 think this is the 
end”

When Sean Daly, die Irish

evidently transmitted to 
Paddy's Son, a ten-year-old

Red raul and out of an Irish 
draught mare who finished 
clear to give Duffy the £1,500 
prize and his first msgor 
international win.

shortlist for Ireland's team for

Frenchman 
watches 
the birdies 

By Mitchell Platts 

The former Amateur cham- 
pion, Jose-Maria Olazabal 
provided his new professional 
colleagues with another indi- 
cation of his immense poten- 
tial at Moor Park yesterday. 

Olazaba], aged 20, gathered 
four birdies in a flawless 
opening round of 68 to move 
into contention for the 
£21.660 first prize in the 
London Standard Four Stars 
Pro-Celebrity tournamentBut 
Olazabal was overtaken by 
another newcomer when Em- 
manuel Dussart. the French 
No. 2, collected his sixth bird- 
ie to complete a 67. Dussart, 
aged 22, is tbe son of the 
French artist, Ghislain, who is 
well known for his photo- 
graphs of Brigitte Bardot over 
the last two decades. 

Olazabal has a marvellous 
touch on and around the 
greens. However, he struggled, 
like so many of bis more 
experienced opponents, to 
handle the greens. “Somebody 
needed a sense of humour to 
I cut the holes in some of the 
positions they were put.” one 
wit said 

That probably explains why 
i Olazabal contrived to miss 
four pulls of less than five feet 
and why Ian Woosnam, who 
I also registered a 68, edged a 14 
inch putt wide at the fourth to 
drop his only shot. 

Moreover, Howard Clark, 
the leading money winner on 
the European circuit this sear 
son, became so frustrated with 
the greens that he reverted to 
employing a wedge to “Wade" 
the ball at several holes. 

“I lost patience with the 
greens,” admitted Clark. "I 
like putting on fast greens and 
in my opinion the grass was 
loo long. I've used a wedge in 
this way in the past, i have a 
tendency to allow my wrists to 
become floppy and 1 find that 
putting with a wedge firms 
them up. 1 missed seven putts 
from inside 12 feet and 1 
decided it was time to do 
something different." 

Clark, however, returned to 
a more conventional weapon 
at his last hole - the ninth — 
where he made a pun of 12 
feet for an eagle three follow- 
ing a three wood approach of 
235 yards. That enabled Clark 
to complete a one-under-par 
71. Ken Brown, the defending 
champion, also returned a 71. 
in spite of dropping two shots 
in his first three holes.

match, the wisest cricketing 
heads in England swivel to- 
wards the telfies on the press 
box wall to watch the action 
replays after they have seen — 
or Minted at — the dismissal. 

At some sporting events, the

seat. If yon watch television 
yon get a comfy chair, cheese 
and pickle sandwiches matte 
mth loving care, and cold beer 
that always seems to be yoar 
favourite brand. Last time I 
went racing in Tatts it was 
impossible to buy a beer at all 
unless yon were prepared to 
miss a race for it I often think 
that the people who non sport- 
ing events should be forced to 
attend them from the cheapest 
seats and pay their own money 
to do so. Then they would 
learn the meaning of pain. And 
why people so regularly prefer 
the telly. 

Some sports, notably toot- 
ha U, still winge on about the 
sad effect television has had on 
their audiences. But watching 
televised sport is a habit of the 
80s: live sport trying to seduce 
us back with the facilities of 
the 50s. Try going to Wimble- 
don without a privileged ticket 
if you want to see what I mean. 

Meanwhile, other sports are 
doing their utmost to peddle 
their souls and anything else 
that might be saleable in their 
efforts to climb into the 
box. They play squash in a hi- 
tech goldfish bowl In the 
mistaken belief that the panw 
makes good television, fable 
temus people are experiment- 
ing with Woe tables, red nets 
and orange balls, to an attempt 
to unike the game's charm 
telensible. /
