THE TIMES 

More 

readers, 

younger 

readers 

Readership of The 
Times is continuing to 
expand and the 
paper is the most cost- 
effective national 
daffy newspaper for 
reaching young, 
successful adults. 

This is disclosed by 
official National 
Readership Survey 
figures issued today for 
2 the period October 
J 1985 to March 1986. 

• Total readership of 
the paper is rising too, 
with a present fimire 
of 1,300,000 readers - 
a 38,000 increase on 
the same period last 
year. 

• A greater 
percentage of readers 
than those of any 
other national paper- 
61 per cent — is from 
the AB socio-economic 
□roup. This group 
includes those men and 
women occupying 
the senior positions in 
their professions, 
industries and 
businesses. 

• Readership among 
ABCIs under 45 has 
grown by 122 per 

cent to 844,000 - 65 per 
cent of Times readers 
are now under the age 
of 45. (The Daily 
Telegraph’s equivalent 
figure is 43 percent) 
T&nes readers are 
among the best- 
informed In file world, 
and a potent market for 
advertisers.

The Presktenf s comments 
were included in a message fie 
sent to the Internationa Pbfr 
sicians for the Prevention (a 
N uclear War congress, in Co- 
logne. But many senior defe- ^ 
gates at the meeting - were; 
disappointed by the tone of r 
the message, which contrasted 
sharply with greetings sent to 
the congress by ' Mr 
Gorbachov. 

President Reagan said be 
had sought to accelerate nego- 
tiations -on the reduction of 
the two superpowers’ nuclear 
arsenals since November. 
“We have serious proposals 
on the table. In Start (Strategic 
Arms Reductions Talks) we 
have proposed a 50 per cent 
reduction in strategic nuclear 
weapons, appropriately 
applied. 

“We have also proposed a 
realistic schedule for the glob- 
al elimination of United 
States and Soviet longer-range 
INF (Intermediate-range 
Nuclear Forces), missiles. In 
the defence and space talks we 

have proposed an open-lab- 
oratories initiative deagned to 
build confidence on both sides 
that the respective research is 
not offensive in nature.” 

The United States had put 
forth proposals for a compre- 


bepsivet verifiable ban on 
^weapons, and had 
initiatives for effective 
cab on of existing nuclear

President Rjts message 
was the last Q* >mmmiic&- 


tions from world leaders to 
arrive at the congress. It came 
more than 24 hours after most 
others, including that sent by 
Mr Gorbachov. 

The Russian leader made 
no reference to the US in his 
message, but wished delegates 
success in their “noble efforts” 
in seeking to avoid nudear 
war. 

American officials dose to 
the leadership of 1PPNW were 
depressed by President 
Reagan’s message and by news 
of his renunciation of the 
Salt 2 arms treaty. 

Professor John Pastore, the 
IPPNW secretary, said: “It’s a 
very hard messagsasfarasihe 
Soviets are concerned. We 
know that the President does 
not share our views on how to 
end the arms race, and we had 
the feeling that the White 
House was reluctant to semi a 
message of support to os. We 
were never going to get a 
message Idling ns to keep up 
the good work.” 

Professor John Kenneth 
Galbraith of Harvard Univer- 
sity told the congress that 
arms negotiations between the 
superpowers had become 
disastrous charade”. 

The military establishment 
in berth countries had become 
an independent force which 
exploited conflict and tension, 
he said. “The arms control 
negotiations are not meant to 
limit and reduce the threat of 
nudear devastation. They are 
now a design for quieting 
public fear of nuclear war.

Promise of money 
for autumn start 
of GCSE exam 

By Lucy Hodges, Education Correspondent 


The Government gave a 
clear assurance yesterday that 
the new GCSE examination 
would go ahead in the autumn 
school term and promised 
more money would be avail- 
able if necessary. 

- Mr Christopher Patten, 
Minister of State for Educa- 
: on, would not be drawn on 
, <s exact amount of extra 
rjrcnding, but made it plain 
the Government was pre pa red 
to spend to make the reform 
succeed. 

Speaking at the National 
Association of Head Teachers 
Conference in Cardiff he 
accepted there would have to 
be negotiations about how 
much money would be 
needed. 

Discussions were going on 
between teachers and local 
authority associations and the 
results of these talks should be 
known “in the next few 
months”, he said. 

“The precise costings that 
we are able to arrive at we will 
want to take account of in 
discussions with the local 
education authorities in the 
Rate Support Grant for next 
year”, be said. 

Significantly Mr Patten told - 
conference delegates in reply 
to questions: “There would be 
no point in discussing these 
costings with you unless we 
wanted to act on them.” 

The Government was look- 
ing at two issues, be said, 
injection of extra money into 
the Rate Support Grant for the 
new examination and 
_ extra moriey for the 
through specific grants. 
But he cautioned the dele- 
gates that some of the things 
which had been said on re- 
sources were wide of the mark. 

“It is not sensible to take the 
view that you can only do a 
GCSE subject if you have a 
text book with GCSE on the 
spine.” A bigger issue was the 


cost of extra teachers for the 
new examination, he said. 

Mr David Han, general 
secretary of the NAHT, said 
this was the first specific 
commitment made by a Gov- 
ernment minister that there 
would undoubtedly be extra 
fending for- the new examina- 
tion. “They clearly intend to 
provide additional resources”, 
be said. 

But the problem was urgent 
“We have to make progress 
within the next week or so at 
the outside. Otherwise we are 
not going to be able to get 
books and equipment into the 
schools by the beginning of the 
autumn tenn ” 

Teachers’ unions, including 
the NAHT this week, are 
demanding £100 million for 
introduction of the new ex- 
amination to replace O levels 
and CSE; the Government 
have given between £20 mil- 
lion and £30 million. 

Mr Patten, who was ad- 
dressing the head teachers in 
the absence of the new Educa- 
tion Secretary, Mr Kenneth 
Baker, said there was no 
question that the examination 
would be postponed, as the 
teaching unions have 
demanded. 

This was simply not 
realistic option, be said. Post- 
ponement would mean exami- 
nation boards re-establishing 
the old machinery which they 
bad dismantled. 

“If we postponed, we would 
have to postpone fora number 
of years. It is right to go ahead 
now.” 

Asked why Mr Baker had 
not accepted an invitation to 
speak to the conference, Mr 
Patten made clear it was not a 
snub. “I would be extremely 
surprised if a bead, within a 
week of taking up an appoint- 
ment in a school, thought it

Trench 
bar as 
hippies 
leave 

By Staff Reporters 
The occupation of a Somer- 
set fanner’s land by more than 
300 hippies ended last night as 
they moved off in a convoy of 
ramshackle vehicles adder po- 
lice surveillance. 

The itinerants began lea 1 
after bailiffs served a F „ 
Court notice on them to tpait 
the Lytes Carey site owned by 
Mr Leslie AttwelL 

Police in transit vans 
\ watched as nearly 100 vehicles 
'? were driven off the land amid a 
chorus of car boras. 

Other landowners in the 
area barricaded their property 
to prevent a repetition of the 
occupation which had forced 
Mr AttweU to seek a High 
Court injunction to regain 
possession of his land. 

The hippies left behind 
three vehicles in his field and 
as he dog a trench to prevent a 
possible return of the convoy, 
Mr AttweU said: 4 *! do not 
know what I will have to do 
now antil I have spoken to the 
Ministry of Agriculture bid I 
expect I will have to plough 
the land to eradicate any 
disease. 

“1 can only say thank God 
they have gone. The last week 
has been a ni ghtmar e,” 

Last night the hippies were 
heading m the direction of 
richest er, in Somerset, along 
the A303. Before the two 
Somerset sheriffs’ officers ar- 
rived at Mr AttweU’s farm, Mr 
Robert Boscawea, the Conser- 
vative MP for Somerton and 
Frome, was pelted with mud 
by hippy children as he told 
jonrnatists that the camber- 
some law on trespass had to be 
changed to speed ap the legal 
process for landowners to 
repossess their property. 

Police outside the farm were 
also pelted with eggs by the 
children. 

Mr David Yale and Mr 
Richard Went escorted by 
senior police officers, wan- 
dered among the hippies 
handing out copies of the High 
Court injunction granted to 
Mr AttweU on Thursday. 
They were greeted by shouts iff 
“go away", “why don’t yon 
ic£ve us alone”, and -leave ns 
in peace". 


Botham 

appeals 

against 

sentence 

lan Botham, the England 
cricketer, has formally lodged 
an appeal to the Cricket. 
Council and is also consider- 
ing legal action after being 
b anned for two months from 
all first-class and international 
matches. 

Mr Botham, who was 
“found guilty” by the Test and 
County Cricket Board on 
Thursday ofTmiieiiig the game 
into disrepute after admitting 
smoking cannabis, has asked 
the appeals committee of the 
Cricket Council, the govern- 
ing body in England, to meet 
within 10 days. 

Mr Alan Herd, Mr 
Botham's solicitor, said yes- 
terday: “We have appealed 
against both the derision and 
the sentence. It is a matter of 
great urgency because my 
client is unable to play first- 
class cricket until after July 31. 
We are also considering the 
possibility of legal action.” 

Mr Hera would not specify 
what action was contemplated 
but it is possible that Mr 
Botham could claim restraint 
of trade since be will lose at 
least £7,500 in appearance fees 
by missing all three Tests 
against India, two one-day 
Texaco internationals and one 
Test against New Zealand. 

In addition he will be 
unable to play in nine county 
games for Somerset 
A five-man appeals com- 
mittee would consist of an 
independent chairman, a rep- 
resentative from the players' 
body, the Cricketers' Associa- 
tion, and three people nomi- 
nated by the Cricket Council 
The committee, which has 
the power the vary the penal- 
ty, would review the evidence 
considered by the nine-man 
TCCB Disciplinary Commit- 
tee which found Mr Botham 
“guilty" of using cannabis; 
admitting to using it; denying 
in the past that he had used 
drugs, and making public 
pronouncements without 
clearance from his county. 

The hearing was called after 
the appearance of a signed 
article by Mr Botham in The 
Mali on Sunday on May 18, 
containing an admission feci 
be had smoked marijuana.

Leak of radioactive

jation 


A leak of “slightly radio- 
active” rust from Britain’s 
oldest nuclear power station 
led to three workers being 
evacuated, British Nuclear 
Fuels disclosed yesterday. 

No-one was contaminated 
and air samples showed no 
evidence of additional radio- 
activity, BNFL added 

The incident, on Thursday, 
occurred when one of the four 
reactors at Calder Hall power 
station, pan of the Sellafield 
site in Cumbria, was being 
overhauled. 

Carbon dioxide used to 


flush out air from a boiler was 
inadvertently vented into a 
working area inside the build- 
ing, 

BNFL said that in the 
“minor” incident, a “small 
quantity of slightly radioac- 
tive rust entrained in the 
carbon dioxide was deposited 
on about three square yards of 
the working area immediately 
outside [he building”. 

The teak would normally 
have been reported only to 
local staff and the Govern- 
ment, but now every incident 
is to be made public.

Princess Margaret, who is 
on an official visit to West 
Berlin, cancelled all her en- 
gagements yesterday because 
of what Clarence Hofase de- 
scribed as a severe throat 
infection. 

She was due to take the 
salute at a parade of British 


troops to mark the Queen’s 
official birthday. 

The Princess, aged 55, is 
due to return to London today 
but her staff said that that 
would depend on her health. 

Lasl year Princess Margaret, 
a cigarette smoker, was admit- 
ted to hospital for investiga- 
tion of a lung complaint, but 
was given the all-clear.

1970, England were defending 
the World Cop in Mexico bnt 
lost their quarter-final tie to 
West Germany 3-2 after their 
goalkeeper, Gordon Banks, 
suffered a stomach upset. 

England, the only Earopean 
notion to qualify for the 24- 
natioB finals without befog 
beaten, have not lost any of 
their past nine games. They 
most finish in the top two of

to the s econd romnd. The other 
countries in their group are 
Morocco, Poland and 
Rntoigal. 

The competition in the pre- 
pools is on a league

to 16. The tourna- 


ment then combines on a 
knock-out basis, ending with 
the final in Mexico City on 
June 29. 

Northern Ireland, who are 
based at Gnadalajara, face 
Algeria, Spain and Brazil. 
Scotland, who have never ful-

tttf TIMES SATURDA vMAY 31 198 — 


A two-branch legal 
sion is artificial and outmoded 
and should be replaced by a 
single fused proton of law- 
yers, the Young Solicitors 
Group says in a paper pub- 
lished yesterday. 

The group is the latest to 


support a ra*u«u iciv. 
profession and an end to fee 
restrictive pracuces whichdis- 
tinguish solicitors from barr- 
isters. , .. 

In a strong attack on tne 

£&» 

a much smaller Bar which 

could be regarded as a separate 

body of specialist advocates or 
consultants. . 

But that distinction no long- 
er applies. Although the Bar 
, “includes specialist advocates* 
there are many whose advoca- 
cy is found wanting . 

' The paper adds: “Moreover 
specialist advocates are not 
exclusively members of™ 
Bar. There is a considerable 
body of solicitor advocates 
and their number is mc- 


rc ft' savs that over the yearn 1 
the functions of the two 

branches have converged: ot- 

ten barristers are no less 
generalist than their solicitor 
counterparts and solicitors are 
becoming more and more 

specialized- _ 

“Given the numbers now 
Qualifying as solicitors and 
barristers, and given their 
converging functions, tne 
present system is a nonsense. 

The group’s proposals are 
far more radical than those in 
the consultative paper pro- 
duced last autumn by a Law 
Society committee, which 
stopped short of fusion and 
advocated the retention of a 
separate specialist Bar, al- 
though significantly smaller 
than now. . , 

But the young solicitors 
oaoer savs that although con- 
sultants - spedaiist 

who would mostly be bnefed 
by other lawyers - would still 
be needed, it sees no justifica- 
tion for a separate Bar. 

That would be pointless, it 
says, if all lawyers have com- 
mon rights of audience in all 
the courts and the public have 
direct access to all lawyers, 

• including the consultants. 

It calls for a .common 
education and training for all 


lawyers, similar to solicitors 
articles, consisting of a one 
year post-degree course ana 
then two years practical 

training. , 

As well as direct access by 
the public to all lawyers, there 
would be unrestricted rights ot 
'n.fiiAnr* in all courts, only to 


be limited to certain courts in 
the first three years after 

qU Afr^judicial appointments 
should also be open to all 
lawyers, and a system tor 
accrediting specialists should 
be introduced. 

Fusion is opposed by tne 
Lord Chancellor, the Bar and * 

was also opposed by the Royal J 

Commission on Legal Ser- 
vices in 1 979 which said it was 
not in the public interest and 
would jeopardize the quality 
both of advocacy and future 
judges. 

But the paper says it injects 
the views of the Government, 
the Lord Chancellor and the 
Bar and urges a reassessment 
of the Royal Commissions 
reasons which it says are “not 
persuasive*’. 

One effect of the present 
restrictions is that 44^000 
lawyers are prevented from 
appearing in the higher courts, 
the paper says. 

“The potential advantage to 
the public if even a fraction of 
r this number were to avail 
[ themselves of extended rights 
r is self-evident" 

. The paper accepts that one 
; result of its proposals would 
> be laige businesses going di- 
i reel to a consultant and not 
- through another lawyer as 
v now. 

Ii Also, large firms of solici- 
1 tors would be able to attract 
a and retain consultants. But the 
t- best consultants would form 
t their own practices, and simi- 
larly there would be firms of 
s’ advocates as well as sole 
i- practitioner advocates, it says. 

5 It was the Young Solicitors 
S who first put forward radical 
__ proposals for reform of the 
profession in 1972. But at that 
time these attracted little 
tt _ . support. 

di Since then, there have been 
ve “dramatic changes in the size 
rs, of the profession, the econom- 
ic climate and the political 
on climate" it says, and it is time 
all to review those proposals.

tobacco-sponsored sport, at a 
lime when Mr Richard 
Tracey. Minister for Sport, 
seems determined to restrict 
or stop the prominent display 
of cigarette brand names at 
televised sports events. 

A MORI opinion poll com- 
missioned by The Times 
shows that 33 per cent of the 
population would favour a 
ban now on tobacco firms 
sponsoring any sporting 
event, and a further 11 per- 
cent would back a ban on 
tobacco-sponsored sport on 
television. 

The total of 44 per cent 
favoured a han on televising 
lobacco-sponsored sport, 
compared with previous polls 
carried out between 1975 and 
1981, in which support for a 
ban on cigarette companies 
sponsoring any sporting event 
fluctuated between 24 and 
34 per cent. 

The previous polls, summa- 
rized in the Central Council of 
Physical Recreation’s 1983 
report on sports sponsorship, 
showed 34 per cent favouring 
a ban on cigarette sponsorship 
of sport, with 38 per cent 
against. However, 28 per cent 
of those polled in the study, 
commissioned by the Tobacco 
Advisory Council, said that 
they did not know or did not 
mind whether there was a ban. 

Figures from the MORI poll 
for The Times in April suggest 
opinions are hardening in 
both directions. Only 5 per- 
cent fell into the “don't 
know" category, with 52 per- 
cent believing tobacco firms 
should be allowed to continue 
sponsoring sporting events.

Women in 
personal 
tax plea 

By Amanda Haigh 
Parliamentary Staff 

Women are three- to one in 
favour of the Government’s 
prcoosals for a fully transfer- 
able personal tax allowance 
between spouses, according to 
initial results of a survey 
carried out by Miss Emma 
Nicholson, vice-chairman of 
the Conservative Party. 

The women prefer the pro- 
posal in the Government’s 
Green Paper, that either party 
to a marriage would have an 
allowance which he or she 
could transfer to the other ifhe 
or she did not have enough 
income to make full use of it, 
to a system where everybody 
has the same level of 
allowance. 

There is dissatisfaction with 
the present system where a 
husband has a tax-free allow- 
ance of one-and-a-half times 
the single person's allowance, 
couples where the wife has a 
paid job have two-and-a-half 
times the single allowance, but 
married women who do not 
have earned income have no 
sd Iowa nee of their own. 

Miss Nicholson, whose sur- 
vey will canvass more than 
50'000 opinions and be sub- 
mitted to the Treasury, said: 
"1 am extremely pleased be- 
cause I believe strongly that 
women should be treated im- 
partially by the tax system and 
nor penalized, as married 
women are by the present 
system.” 

Mr Nigel Lawson. Chancel- 
lor of the Exchequer, will 
address the Consent-alive 
Women’s annual conference 
next week on the Green Paper.

Man in land 
corruption 
leak jailed 

A former company manag- 
ing director who tipped off a 
national newspaper about cor- 
ruption in the Property Ser- 
vices Agency was jailed for 
nine months yesterday. 

Dennis Pickering, aged 46, 
of Derby Road, Kirkby in 
Ashfield, Nottinghamshire, 
admitted three charges of 
corruption at Lincoln Crown 
Court. 

He showered gifts, includ-

Woman’s 

police 

fantasy 

Catherine Donovan, whose 
dream of joining the police 
force did not come true, mas- 
queraded as a police girt, 
Horseferry Road magistrates 
in Umdon were told yesterday. 

She mixed with off-duty 
officers at their regular haunt 
and managed to trick them out 
of a police warrant card and 
uniform, the court heard. 

The magistrate, Mr Charles 
Davidson, was told Miss Don- 
ovan had already been jailed 
twice for impersonating police, 
first for 21 days and then in 
December 1983, for six 
months. He placed her mi 
probation for two years. 

He read psychiatric reports 
and toM hen “The position is 
dearly that yoo live in a 
fantasy world and are in need 
of medical treatment.” 

Miss Juliet Oliver, for Miss 
Donovan, said: “These are 
ingrained habits that she is 
clearly struggling to get over.” 

Miss Donovan, aged 21, 
formerly of Coley Avenue, 
Reading, had admitted three 
counts of impersonating po- 
lice, and one of obtaining a 
police skirt, shirt and jumper 
by deception at the traffic 
wardens' centre is Kensington. 

It was not until five days 
after her masquerade at Ham- 
mersmith police station last 
November that she was arrest- 
ed by officers she subsequently 
met, who made a check which 
revealed she was a fake. 

Mss Sue Holden, for the 
prosecution, said Miss Dono- 
van had for a number of 
months visited paMk houses 
and dubs frequented by off- 
duty police officers, mixing 
with them to gain their 
onfidence. 

She would introduce herself 
as a WPC from Notting Hifl, 
giving her name and 
‘‘number”, Miss Holden said, 
and on one occasion, in Octo- 
ber, she "‘borrowed” a warrant 
card from an officer and used it 
to pose as a police woman at a 
discotheque in Kensington. 

Miss Donovan had spent a 
week in custody on remand at 
Holloway prison after her 
arrest, but was rearrested 
while on bail in January for 
posing as a policewoman at a 
Woolworths store in Reading. 

The magistrate, who was 
told Miss Donovan bad prom- 
ised to take voluntary psychi- 
atric treatment, advised her: 
-If you are going to deal with 
this problem, you will have to 
motivate yourself.” 

After the bearing. Miss 
Donovan refused to say if she 
had ever applied to join the 
police, and was driven off by 
representatives of a Sunday 
newspaper. 

A police spokesmansaid 
Miss Donovan's parents had 
not allowed her to join the 
force. 


Regions fight to keep Heathrow link

uled dai ly flights from Inver- 
ness and Dundee to London 
should land at Gatwick rather 
than Heathrow Is being resist- 
ed by local authorities and 
businessmen hi the two 
regions. 

Dan Air and Euroair, which 
operate the services, believe 
the flights would not be viable 
if they are diverted from 
Heathrow because many pas- 
sengers want to join interna- 
tjooal flights and would he 
unable to do so. 


Mr Graham Pasquill, direc 
tor of Euroair, said yesterday: 
-We are absolutely against 
this idea. We took over the 
service between Dundee and 
Heathrow via Carlisle six 
months ago and invested 
heavily in it with pressurized 

aircraft and wide publicity. 

“hi the nw regions of 
Tayside and Cumbria it has 
built up very healthily, but it 
does depend on providing an 
inter-line service which could 
not happen at Gatwick. It 
would be a blow to us and a 
worse blow for Cumbria and 
Tayside.” 


Mr PasqniU thought it im- 
possible to believe that two 
landings a day were going to 
make any difference to 
Heathrow's congestion, the 
reason why the British Air- 
ports Authority seeks to divert 
the flights. 

He believes that Edinburgh 


would suffer for less if some of cnanges-

and British Airways between 
the Scottish capital and 
Heathrow were cdl “That will 
be much fairer than discon-

from international flights.”

Any such scheme would be

Improvements 
on land ‘better 
for consumers 
than farmers’ 


By John Young, Agriailtare Correspondent 


Consumers, rather thaw 
fanners, have been the mam 
long-term beneficiaries of ag- 
ricultural research and devel- 
opment* a report published 
yesterday ebim*. 

Substantial increases in pro- 
ductivity, achieved by new 
technology, have not brought 
lasting reward to the average 
fanner in recent years, the. 
report by the Centre for 
Agricnlmrri Strategy at Read- 
ing University says. 

Some formers, especially 
those who owned or inherited 
their forms before or soon 
after the Second World War, 
have prospered, sometimes 
becoming millionaires. But 
others have done worse than 
hired employees and many 
now have heavy debt burdens. 

The report says that in 
recent years public attention 
Jus been focused on the costs 
of supporting agriculture and 
disposing of surplus 
production. 

There is a common belief 
that formers are over-reward- 
ed for their efforts, but the 
indications are that incomes 
have been squeezed between 
higher input costs and lower 
market prices, it says. 

The most criticized changes 
in the appearance of the 
landscape have taken place in 
fairly restricted areas, the 
report says. 

“That our countryside at- 
tracts ever growing numbers 


of visitors is an indication of 
how much the present appear- 
ance of the landscape is still 
appreciated, and that appear- 
ance is greatly influenced by 
fanning," it says. "The under- 
lying topography of Areas of 
Outstanding Natural Beauty 
may be natural, but the cover 
is largely due to man.* 1 

The fact that certain groups 
can now indulge in the luxury 
of criticizing UK formi 
methods is an indication 
bow successful farm e r s have 
been in increasing food 
output 

Overall more food can be 
produced than is needed to 
reed the population, and sup- 
ply can be considered well 
secured, apart from vulnera- 
bility to nudear attack. 

The report points to the 
importance of agriculture in 
the national economy, not 
least as an employer. 

Much has been made of the 
decline in the workforce, but 
although it represents only 
Z3 per cent nationally, the 
proportion of the population 
directly employed in agricul- 
ture rises to 92 per cent in 
Cornwall; 10.6 per cent in 
Lincolnshire; more than 
10 per cent in the Scottish 
borders and in Dumfries and 
Galloway; 15 per .cent in Dyf 
ed; 22.5 per cent in Powys; 
21.5 per cent in Co Tyrone 
and 31.5 per cent in Co 
Fermanagh.

Thatcher pledge to Soviet dissident 

By Nicholas Ashford, Diplomatic Correspondent 


Mrs Margaret Thatcher met 
the wife of the dissident Soviet 
scientist Dr Andrei Sakharov, 
in London yesterday and re- 
fused to give in to Moscow’s 
“blackmail” over his release. 

Mrs Yelena Bonner is visit- 
ing Western leaders as part of 
her campaign to have her 
husband freed from internal 
exile in the Soviet Union. 

For half an hour yesterday 
morning Mrs Thatcher, whom 
the Kremlin once nicknamed 
“the Iron Lad/*, listened in- 
tently as Mrs Bonner ex- 


plained what life was like for 


Sakharov, ai 
has lived in enforced exile at 
Goiky for the past six years. 
As sire was leaving Downing 


Street Mrs Bonner told jour- 
nalists that she would not give 
in to Moscow’s “bfockmafi” 
over her husband's release. 

She was referring to the 
statement on Thursday by Mr 
Victor Louis, an influential 
Soviet journalist, that Dr 
Sakharov’s freedom was being 
put in jeopardy by her high- 

level mmpaigmng am nnrf the 

West. 

Mrs Thatcher added: “Mrs 
Bonner said it was Made-mail. 
We don't give in to 
blackmail.” 

Mrs Bonner held talks with 
PresideniFrancais Mitterrand 
of France earlier this week and 
is to meet Signor Bettino 
Craxi, the Italian prime minis- 


ter, over the weekend before 
returning to the Soviet Union 
Speaking m Russian, with 
her daughter, Tania, acting as 
interpreter, she said of Mr 
Louis' reported statement: 

“This seam to be ample 
blackmail — it seems to me 
they are trying to scare Ma- 
dame Prime Minister and 
other Western political leaders 
into not meeting with me.” 

The prime minister said 
that she had assured Mrs 
Bonner that “we will keep 
faith with Dr Sakharov. We 
always continue to press tire 
Soviet Union on a number of 
specially well-known cases, of tude 
which Dr Sakharov is one.” 

“I think you will find that 


the efforts we have made on 
behalf of others have helped to 
enable them to either leave tbe 
Soviet Union or perhaps to be 
a little bit freer within il” 
Asked how she felt about 
reluming to the Soviet Union 
Mrs Bonner replied: T have a 
very strange feeling about 
going back. 1 want to see my 
husband very much. Very 
little do I warn tor see tire 
Soviet Union as such, but I 
am ready to continue in 
exile.” 

Her meeting with Mss 
Thatcher had brought home to 
her the “very attentive” ant-

Brighton bomb trial 


Irish woman denies concocting story 


By Stewart TemUer 


An Irish woman accused of 
taking part in an IRA conspir- 
acy to plant bombs at British 
resorts yesterday denied to a 
jury that she and another girl 
had made up a “cock and 
bull” story in their defence. 

Miss Efla O'Dwyer, aged 27, 
and four others, including Mr 
Patrick Magee, who has plead- 
ed not guilty to placing the 
Brighton bomb in 1984, have 
denied taking part in a con- 
spiracy to plant bombs be- 
tween January and Jane last 
year. 


Miss O'Dwyer told the Cen- 
tral Criminal Court yesterday 
that she went to Glasgow in 
April last year to help Irish 
prisoners on the run, and she 
subsequently went to Copen-. 
ha$en twice escorting men 
trying to escape. She used a 
false British passport in a 
fictitious name to make the 
trip. 

Asked by Mr Ivor Richard 
QC, for the defence, if she had 
been part of a bomb plot she 
said: “There is no truth, in that 
whatsoever.” 

Mr Roy Amlot, for the- 


prosecution, asked her in 
cross-examination if she and 
Miss Martina Anderson, an- 
other defendant, “put your 
heads together to bufid a cock 
and bull story”. Miss O’Dwyer 
said: “We have not done any 
cock .and bull story 
whatsoever.” 

Miss O'Dwyer denied that 
she had been to the Rubens 
Hotel near Bu ckingham Pal. 
ace where Mr Magee is alleged 
to have stayed for tire mght 
last June and planted a bomb. 

Asked how her fing er p rint s 
got on to a number of docu- 


ments linked to the bomb plot 
and a matchbox containing 
some ammunition hrirt in a 
London flat. Miss O'Dwyer 
said that the prints could have 
been left before tire papers 
were written on. 

Mr Amlot said that her 
fingerprints had been left on 
toolboxes, a newspaper cot- 
ting, magazines, a map of 
Hereford, a reference to a time 
power unit, a bomb calendar 
and a diagram of the type of 
bomb at tire BLobens HoteL 

The trial, continues 
Monday.'

Police apology for 


calling man senile 


A banister made a “most 
fulsome apology” on behalf of 
the police yesterday to a 
retired Army captain who 
took umbrage when a young 
constable called him senile. 

John Skinner-Scott, aged 
65, holder of the Military 
Medal, was so outraged that 
be appealed against a careless 
driving conviction — simply 
to prove he was in rail - 
command of his faculties. 

Judge Anthony -Bulger, sit- * 
ting at Gloucester Crown' 
Court, 'shared Captain Skin- 
ner-Scott’s feelings. “It was 
quite wrong. A monstrous 
thing for an officer to say. 

“lire captain was quite right 
to bring his protest to us and I 
am gi™ that -this statement 
has now been absolutely 
withdrawn.” 

Mr Paul Forrest, for the 
police, said that the comment 
was made “inadvisedly” try a 
young police- constable with- 
out any medical evidence 
“It was obviously quite 
wrong for this opinion to be 


expressed at the magistrates' 
court because it was not an 
expert one. I am instructed to 
offer the most fulsome 
apology” he added. 

Captain Skinner-Scott, of] 
Frithwood Park, Strond, 
Gloucestershire, told the judge 
that it was not the £80 fore or 
the order to take a driving test 
'that he objected to, but the 
fact that a policeman had said 
he had senile dementia. 

Mr Forrest said the captain 
had been involved in a colli- 
sion near his home and the 
comment about senile demen- 
tia had been made because the 
police were concerned about 
the captain's driving ability, 
after two eariier accidents, In 
one of tbe crashes tbe captain 
had been seriously injured. 

Miss June Rodgers, for 
Captain Skinner-Scott, said 
that he was content to drop the 
appeal after theapology, and 
added: “He has had a very 
distinguished military career 
and lakes great offence at what 


was said." 


Miners escape 
in attack 


on pit cage 


Forty-eight miners escaped 
unhurt when vandals threw a 
piece of machinery down a pit]

responsible for throwing a 
1 51b conveyor roller down the

ter, on Thursday night. . 

A group of children were 
being chased from the colliery

up the piece of machinery. 

The cage was halfway up the 
shaft when the 19-inch long 
roller hitit, punching a hole in 
tbe root Bits of the machinery

“It is pure luck the outcome 
was not much more serious,” 
Mr Barry Chadwick, the pit 
manager, said yesterday..

More sponsors for Scottish arts 


By Ronald Faux 


Business sponsorship of foe 
arts in Scotland rose by 30 per 
cent last year with more than 
200 companies contributing 
£1.7 million towards artistic 
endeavour north of the border. 

A survey published yester- 
day by the Scottish Arts 
Comril showed that sponsor- 
ship from ofi empirics , in- 
creased front £179,000 to 
£323*000. DistiUets ind brew- 
era .increased their contribu- 
tion from £47,000 to £124,000. 


Mr Timothy Mason, direc- 
tor of foe council, said foe 
survey was based on organiza- 
tions receiving subsidy from 
SAC If the Coll range of arts 
organizations in Scotland was 
Incfaded the total wonld be 
conskbrably higher. . 

Part of the success is due to 
theBusmess Sponsorship In- 
centive Scheme under which,

ship for foe first tone were 
matched 1 pound far pound by

The Salt 2 controversy 

Nato ministers press 
Washington not to 
abandon arms treaty

The United States has come 
under heavy pressure at the 
Nato foreign ministers' meet- 
ing in Halifax, Nova Scotia, 
not to break the Salt 2 arms 
control agreement with the 
Soviet Union. 

Britain, Canada and West 
Germany expressed concern 
over a recent warning by Mr 
Caspar Weinberger, the US 
Secretary of. Defence, that 
Washington would begin 
breaching the limits imposed 
by Sait 2 later zhisyear in view 
of continued Soviet vio- 
lations. 

Sir Geoffrey Howe, the 
Foreign Secretary, dearly ex- 
pressed Britain's reservations 
at the opening of the dosed 
two-day meeting on Thurs- 
day. He said Britain would 
regret it greatly if the provi- 
sional US decision to exceed 
the Salt 2 limits had to be 
implemented. The same view 
was expressed this week — the 
day after Mr Weinberger is- 
sued his warning — ina British 


From John Best, Ottawa 

statement issued in London 
and Washington. 

The Foreign Secretary was 
understood to have put across 
the same position in talks with 
Mr George Shultz, the US 
Secretary of State, on board 
the aircraft which carried the 
two from Washington to Hali- 
fax. 

Sir Geoffrey welcomed the 
US decision to remain within 
the limits of Salt 2 for the time 
bang by retiring two old Po- 
seidon missile-tiring submar- 
ines when a new Trident-class 
Submarine enters service in 
the near future. He also drew 
the attention of the Russians 
to the need for strict compli- 
ance with Salt 2. 

Mr Joe Clar k, the Canadian 
External Affairs Minister, 
took a similar line, emphasiz- 
ing the “fundamental import- 
ance" of full compliance with 
arms control agreements and 
expressing regret that the So- 
viet record bad raised so many 
questions that the US no long- 
er felt bound by Salt 2. 


He said: “That is a pro- 
foundly disturbing develop- 
ment, and one we hoped could 
have been avoided." He ex- 
pressed the hope that the 
Soviet record mil improve 
and that the US warning about 
a breakout “is not the final 
word on the issue". 

Mr Brian Muironey, the 
Canadian Prime Minister, 
who was in Halifax to greet the 
alliance foreign ministers, 
said: “We hope the Salt 2 

treaty can be maintained 

notwithstanding repeated vio- 
lations by the Soviet Union." 

Herr Hans-Dietrich 
Genscher, the West German 
foreign minister, also regis- 
tered his government's mis- 
givings over the US position. 
• HALIFAX: The final state- 
ment, issued by the foreign 
ministers yesterday made no 
mention of the widespread 
opposition to the US Salt 2 
plan (AP reports). 

It voiced support for US 
efforts to reduce the 
superpowers' nuclear arsenals. 


Lange says Anzus pact still viable 


■and to 


Mr David Lange, the Prime 
Minister of New Zealand, yes- 
terday affirmed that New 
Zealand's non nuclear policy 
did not spell the end of the 
Adzes pact, despite deep dif- 
ferences with the United 
States. 

Speaking at the EEC Com- 
mission, Mr Lange said New 
Zealand was inextri cably tied 
to western values and the 
western alliance, and was giv- 
en to western democratic Im- 
pulses. “We have not slipped 


From Richard Owen, Brussels 

off somewhere between Alba- 
nia and Nicaragua," Mr 
(said. 

le emphasized that Anzus 
was not a unclear affiance, and 
previous New Zealand govern- 
ments had acknowledged this. 
He said New Zealand had 
always been active in the 
defence of the Pacific area. 

Mr Lange, who had arrived 
from West Germany, is on a 
tom- of West Europe. He held 
talks with senior European 
officials yesterday, which fo- 


cussed on agricultural trade 
New Zealand is embarking 
on difficult talks with the 
Community over butter ex- 
ports to the EEC which are 
expected to reach nearly 
80,000 tons this year. Mr 
Lange suggested that the two 
sides might co-operate in re- 
ducing the EEC butter moan- 
tain by using New Zealand's 
fatalities for tenting excess 
hotter into concentrated but- 
ter, or ghee, for export to Asia 
and the Third World. 


US invites 
Soviet 
Defence 
Minister 

From Michael Binyon 
Washington 

Mr Caspar Weznbereer, the 
Defence Secretary, has formal- 
ly invited his Soviet counter- 
part to visit the United States 
this year to discuss “the wide 
gulf on issues related to each 
other’s military forces, doc- 
trine and intentions". 

Marshal Sergei Sokolov has 
not yet responded to the 
invitation, issued earlier this 
month. A visit would be the 
first here by a Soviet defence 
minister. It if proved con- 
structive, the Pentagon said, 
Mr Weinberger planned to 
follow it up with meetings of 
US and Soviet generals and 
admirals. 

Mr Weinberger has k 
been attacked by Moscow as 
an anti-Soviet hardliner. 
Asked why he chose to issue 
the invitation at a time when 
he was urging the abandon- 
ment of the Salt 2 arms treaty, 
the Pentagon spokesman said 
that last year’s Geneva sum- 
mit had demonstrated the 
need for a direct airing of 
views where there were 
disagreements. 

A more idling reason per- 
haps is the condition that 
Congress enacted in this year’s 
defence budget, requiring the 
Defence Secretary to submit a 
plan for the exchange of high- 
ranking civilian and military 
officials from the Pentagon 
and the Soviet Defence 
Ministry. 

• Monitoring agreement The 
Soviet Union is now prepared 
to allow non-government US 
scientists to monitor some of 
its underground explosions, if 
Russians are allowed to moni- 
tor underground tests in the 
United States (Mohsin Air 
writes).

Salt decision brings feuds to a head

Arms control has always 
been the most contentious 
issue in the Reagan Adminis- 
tration. The bitter personal 
feuds and public fights be- 
tween hawks and doves, ideo-

led to a series of zigzags in 
policy, confusing opponents 
and Nato allies alike. _

ation this week of ihe^Salt 2 
arms control treaty / has 
brought the arguments to a 
head. 

Previous dashes — over the 
running of the Anns Control 
and Disarmament Agency, the 
“zero option”, the medium- 
range missile negotiations, 
and most recently the anti- 
ballistic missile treaty — have 
always been papered over, Mr 
Reagan has kepi the waning 
factions apart with compro- 
mises and ambiguities. 

But now the moment of 
truth appears to have come. 
The President has finally tak- 
en the long-threatened step of 
breaking free from a treaty 
that he contends is “fatally 
flawed" but which he contin- 
ued to observe. 

The Salt structure, he de- 
clared, has been demolished 
by Soviet violations and 


should be replaced with some- 
thing sounder, yet to be nego- 
tiated. In future, US strategic 
forces would be limited not by 
standards laid down in the 
Salt treaties, but by the nature 
and size of the Soviet threat 

Arms control advocates be- 
lieve be has crossed the Rubi- 
con. They see a victory for the 
hardliners, especially for Mr 
Richard Perie, the influential 

By Michael Binyon 

Assistant Defence Secretary, 
who they say never really 
believed m arms control and 
consistently endeavoured to 
sabotage agreement They say 
Mr Reagan has set Moscow 
ronditions impossible to fulfil. 

The Russians now have less 
incentive to negotiate in good 
forth, as he has just torn up 
two important arms agree- 
ments niuefi it look 20 years 
and four Presidents to reach. 

But has he? An irrevocable 
step is not Mr Reagan's style. 
His announcement typically, 
left him escape clauses. He has 
“retired" two Poseidon sub- 
marines — officially on 
grounds of age and economy, 
not because of a missile count 


Bnt technically the US there- 
fore still remains within the 
Salt 2 limits, and the Russians 
still have “some months" to 
correct their violations. 

Urging Moscow to negotiate 
seriously, be said what the US 
does next depends on Soviet 
behaviour. Raring more sub- 
marines is dearly still an 
option. It is brinkmanship, at 
home and abroad. . 

The arms control doves 
won the last round, the row 
over the proposed reinterpre- 
tation of the ABM treaty. 
Since then the Republican 
right has been yapping at Mr 
Reagan's heels, with accusa- 
tions of passivity in the face of 
what are claimed as ever more 
blatant Soviet violations. So 
he. has included plenty of 
bellicose words in his latest 
statement to quieten them. 

The promise not to deploy 
more strategic nuclear deliv- 
ery vehicles, or strategic ballis- 
tic warheads, than Moscow 
leaves room for continued 
expansion of the cruise missile 
and bomber arsenal. The 
“retired” submarines will 
eventually be dismantled, but 
plenty of time could elapse 
first 

But will the Russians see it 


as just a sop to the right, or as 
proof that tile Administration, 
restless with parity, is deter- 
mined now to go for nudear 
superiority? Mr Robert Mc- 
Namara guarantees, from his 
experience as a former De- 
fence Secretary, that Moscow 
wiB lake the latter view. 

Veteran negotiators say 
that, coming after the attempt 
to throw off ABM restraints, it 
will be taken as a signal that 
Washington will pursue its 
military bnild-np, including 
the Strategic Defence Initia- 
tive, regardless of existing 
treaties. 

For that is how jnbilant 
arms control opponents view 
it here. 

Mr Reagan evidently hopes 
his carefully worded fudge will 
yet rein in his fissiparous 
Administration, at least while 
there are still hopes for a 
summit with Mr Gorbachov 
Ihisyear. 

Mr George Shultz, the Sec- 
retary of Slate, may be per- 
suaded that it is the final 
ultimatum. Mr Caspar Wein- 
berger, the Secretary of De- 
fence, has already spoken of 
breaking the treaty limits in 
August. But the fight between 
them continues. 


France hit 
by 24-hour 
rail strike 

Fans (Renter) — Striking 
workers brought severe dis- 
nrptiofi to France’s railways 
yesterday in a 24-hour protest 
against the new Government’s 
wage freeze and proposals to 
cot 8,000 jobs and change 
working conditions. 

A spokeswoman for the 
state railway company, SNCF, 
said that only one in four main 
line trains was running 
normally. 

The strike, the most disrup- 
tive national stoppage in 
France since the right-wing 
Government of M Jacques 
Chirac came to power in the 
March 16 election, fallowed 
the introduction ofa new 
roster contested by drivers. 

Union spokesmen said that 
they were also protesting 
against the Government pay 
freeze and SNCF plans, an- 
nounced In April, to shed 
8,000 jobs this year. • • 
The strike was called by the 
Communi st-le d CGT, the pro- 
socialist; CFDT and an inde- 
pendent union. Between them 
they membership of 98 
per cent rtf' train drivers.

Gonzalez seeks middle 
of the road support 

From Richard Wigg, Madrid 
Senor Felipe Gonz&ez, the erendum on Spain staying m 


Spanish Prime Minister, will 
plunge today into campaign- 
ing across the country for the 
June 22 general election, con- 
centrating his efforts on con- 
quering the middle-of-the- 
road voters. 

Senor Gonzalez has proved 
in office to be a pragmatic- 
minded social democrat. But 
his Socialist Workers’ Party, if 
it is to win power for another 
four years, needs to concen- 
trate above all on retaining the 
three million votes which 
Senor Gonzalez said after the 


1982 general election had only 
been “lent" to his party. The 
Socialists won 10 million 
■votes in 1982. 

They will be doing then- 
utmost to retain an absolute 
majority, and the centre and 
right-wing forces will be strug- 
gling to prevent them. In the 
outgoing Parliament the So- 
cialists had 202 of the 350 
seats. Spam’s electoral system, 
heavily favouring the big par- 
ties, might still give Senor 
Gonz&Iez enough seals even 
on a lower vote. 

The 44-year-old lawyer 
from Seville will be more than 
ever the star performer after 
triumphing in the March ref- 

s 



Sefior Gonzalez: Camp 
appearances to be ” 


Nato. But the voters may 
remember that be pleaded 
with' them them if they had 
doubts, to “punish me, please, 
at the general election and not 
over Nato". 

The Socialists wfll empha- 
size how they have provided 
efficient government, consoli- 
dated democracy, taken Spain 
into the Common Market, 
pursued realistic economic 
policies and been firm with 
terrorists. 

Senor Gonzalez's campaign 
appearances will be essentially 
limited to the weekends bo- 
cause, he says, he must con- 
centrate on the business of 
governing the country during 
the week. 

The state-controlled televi- 
sion roll be the Socialists' 
chief means of campaigning, 
but Senor Gonzalez also plans 
to post a “personal” letter to 
18 million electors. 

The conquest of the centre 
ground pits the Socialists 
against Sefior Adolfo Suarez, 
the former Prime Minister, 
who led Spam's transition to 
democracy, and is now at- 
tempting a comeback with his 
tiny Democratic and Social 
Centre Party. 

But Sefior Suarez is also 
disputing this ground with a 
newcomer, the Reformist Par- 
ty of Senor' Miquel Roca, the 
Catalan leader. Senor Manuel 
Frags, the Opposition leader, 
is inevitably pushed further to 
tbe right by sD this manoeu- 
vring, which spirts the non- 
sotialistvote. 

' What happens on the 
Socialists' left frank is vital to 
the outcome. The Socialists 
admit tfoft abstentions by 
disappointed working class 
voters worry them, and the 
Communists have put togeth- 
er a “United Left” front in a 
bid to exploit this.

The Pope signing his encyclical “Domianm et VmficantenT in his private study in the 
Vatican yesterday, watched by Archbishop Martinez Somalo of Spain 


Pope sees hope as 
well as danger 

From Our Correspondent, Rome 


In his latest encyclical, the 
Pope yesterday castigated 
“the signs and symbols of 
death* 1 in contemporary civili- 
zation and spoke of the danger 
of nuclear self-destruction. 

He also condemned the 
arms race and international 
terrorism. He deplored 
“death-dealing poverty” and 
famine affecting vast areas of 
the Earth, the lairing of life 
through abortion and euthana- 
sia, and the new wars that had 
broken out. 

But, despite this picture of 
death, despite the dark shades 
of materialistic ririfization, 
the Christian had the certainty 
of the Holy Spirit, tbe Pope 
wrote. 

The encyclical, published 
yesterday, invoked the spirit of 
the Holy Ghost to ensure 
peace for a trouble-tom world, 
as the Roman Catholic Church 
prepared to enter 
Christianity's third 

millwinimn 

Entitled ZtomiffHm et 
Vmficaatem, it is devoted to 
the Holy Ghost and completes 
the trilogy be has written on 
the nature of God, following 
Redemptor Hominis on the 
Son and Dives iu Misericordia 
on the Father. 


Tbe Church, be wrote at the 
end of tbe 138-page work, 
implored from the Holy Spirit 
tiie joy which was the fruit of 
love. 

“Peace, too, is the fririt of 
love; that interior peace, which 
weary man seeks in his inmost 
being; that peace be sought by 
humanity, human family, peo- 
ples, nations, continents, anx- 
iously hoping to obtain it in the 
prospect of a transition to the 
third Christian nuflennimiL” 

“The Church's mind and 
heart turn to the Holy Spirit as 
this twentieth century draws to 
a dose” he wrote. The third 
millenni um would be the occa- 
sion for a great jnbilee with 
which the Church would cele- 
brate tbe event 

The Vatican said the idea of 
the encyclical, much of which 
is of purely religions content, 
came to the Pope in 1982. He 
made a rough draft in 1983, 
and began to write it out in 
Polish in the second half of 
1985. 

A Vatican spokesman de- 
scribed it as a message iff hope 
from the pastor of the Univer- 
sal Church at a moment in the 
history of the world when, 
despite the progress of science 
and technology, mankind was 
threatened. 


Norway faces tax rises 
after spending spree 

From Tony Samstag, Oslo 
Norwegian consumers last its 990,000 barrels a day. 


year indulged iu their wildest 
spending spree since tbe end 
of the Second World War, Mr 
Gunnar Beige, the Finance 
Minister, said yesterday . 

Announcing a 3.5 billion 
kroner (£300 million) increase 
in taxation for this year, he 
told the Stoning (Parliament) 
ihai Norway’s new Labour 
Government faced big foreign 
trade deficits after several 
years of surpluses which had 
been made possible by high oil 
prices. 

Although prices have recov- 
ered recently, they are only 
about SO per cent of last year’s 
high of $30 (£20) a barrel. 

Norway is Europe's biggest 
producer after Britain but. 
unlike Britain, exports most of 


Mr Beige said yesterday 
that it would take at least two 
years to bring the economy 
under control. 

Private consumption in 
1985 had increased by more 
than 8 per cent, compared 
with forecasts of 2.5 per cent 
The new Budget would 
increase taxes, especially on 
higher incomes, and would cut 
the lending limit for commer- 
cial banks by almost a fifth. Of 
750 million kroner cut from 
state spending, a tenth would 
come out of defence. 

Mrs Gro Harlem Brand t- 
land, the new Prime Minister, 
is- to visit Venezuela, an Opec 
member, for talks on oil prices 
next week on her way home 
from Canada. 


EEC sets 
limits on 
radiation 

From Richard Owen 
Brussels 

EEC member governments 
have reached last-minute 
agreement on a system for 
monitoring radiation levels in 
all fresh food imports into the 
Community to replace the 
EEC ban on food from Eastern 
Europe, which expires today. 

The new system, which will 
run until September, replaces 
the ban, which arouses Soviet 
bloc anger, with surveillance 
of foodstuffs from all non- 
EEC countries. 

Agreement was reached by 
EEC diplomats representing 
the Twelve after a series of 
wrangles over what constitut- 
ed an acceptable level of 
radiation. 

Greece and France prevent- 
ed the proposal from going to 
Thursday’s meeting of EEC 
health ministers when they 
objected that the proposed 
levels were too stria and 
would alarm public opinion at 
a time when risks of contami- 
nation from Chernobyl were 
diminishing. 

Greece also demanded EEC 
compensation for European 
farmers who suffered losses 
because of earlier EEC anti- 
radiation measures. 

These objections have now 
been dropped, and the new 
system is to be based on levels 
in force in the US. However, 
lower levels will apply to trade 
within the Community, on the 
assumption that the new mon- 
itoring system will automati- 
cally exclude from the EEC 
area products harmful to pub- 
lic health. 


Spain to 
expel 
fugitive 
Briton 

Alicante (Reuter) — Mr 
John Robert Fleming, a Briton 
wanted for questioning about 
the record £26 million gold 
bullion robbery at Heathrow, 
will be expelled from Spain 
within a week, court officials 
here said yesterday. 

A judge rejected Mr 
Fleming's appeal against his 
expulsion. He will be given 48 
hours to leave the country 
after the civil governor of 
Alicante signs the expulsion 
order next week, officials said. 

The Spanish Interior Minis- 
try ordered his expulsion in 
January under a tough new 
aliens' law on the grounds that 
he was in possession of a false 
passport. 

Wine scandal 
brothers jailed 

Krems, Austria (Reuter) — 
Two brothers were jailed for 
10 years each for their part in a 
wine-docioring scandal which 
rocked the Austrian wine in- 
dustry last year. A judge here 
found Richard Grill, aged 54, 
and his brother Josef aged 57, 
guilty of gross commercial 
fraud. 

A chemist who worked for 
them. Ono Nadrasky, was 
given a five-year term, and 
their cellar overseer. Franz 
Authrith, a two-year suspend- 
ed sentence. They had been 
charged with having laced six 
million litres of wine with 
dieihetyne-glycol. 

Retrial ordered 
after 26 years 

Shizuoka, Japan (Reuter) - 
The Tokyo High Court or- 
dered a retrial for a 57-year- 
old man who has spent 26 
years on death row. The 
records of Masao Akabori’s 
confession that he raped and 
murdered a six-year-old girl in 
1954 could not be trusted. 

The death sentence passed 
on him in I960 was suspend- 
ed. He has repeatedly main- 
tained his innocence, saying 
he gave a false confession after 
being tortured by police. 

Diamond theft 

New York (AP) — A Belgian 
diamond dealer was robbed of 
diamonds worth more than 
$200,000 (£130.000) as he was 
entering his room at a mid- 
Manhattan hotel. 

Ozal wife sues 

Ankara (Reuter) — The wife 
of Mr Turgut OzaL the Turk- 
ish Prime Minister, filed a

tried to fix the result of a First 
Division football match. 

Spy sentence 

Amsterdam (Reuter) — El- 
len Tunnissen, a member ofa 
Dutch communist fringe par- 
ty, was jailed for two years for 
having made copies of secret 
papers about Nato tank ar- 
mour and trying to pass them 
to East Germany.

Rome (Reuter) — Legal 
eviction officers here have 
been forced to vacate their

Warning on oil prices 


Ottawa — World oil prices 
should be stabilized higher 
than at present, according to a 
World Commission on Envi- 
ronment and Development 
panel (John Best writes). 

Unless negotiations on an 
orderly price rise began imme- 
diately, the world community 
would lose the benefits of 
increased energy efficiency 


from the high oil prices of the 
1970s, says the 22-member 
panel, headed by Senor 
Enrique Iglesias, the Uruguay- 
an Foreign Minister. 

A summary ofits report was 
released here during a tour of 
Canada by the commission. It 
is to make its recommenda- 
tions next year to the United 
Nations General Assembly. 


Hotel bombs in Spain 

ETA aim is a Basque state 


The military wing of ETA 
(Basque Homeland and Liber- 
ty) is behind the anti-tourist 
campaign in Spain, which is 
part of its efforts to destabilize 
the country. 

Tbe military wing is now 
the principal active element of 
ETA. In the past eight years 
splinter groups, defections, 
French co-operation in elimi- 
nating a “sanctuary** for 
Basque terrorists on the 
French side of the border, and 
a Spanish Government-spon- 
sored programme of pardons 
have reduced ETA's numeri- 
cal strength and greatly under- 
mined its support among 
many Basque people: 

ETA's aim is to'win inde- 
pendence for Spain’s Basque 


From Harry Debelios, Madrid 

region, and eventually to en- 
large the resulting Basque 
state by taking in the Basque 
departments in south-western 
France. 

The organization first ap- 
peared in the 1960s, as a 
splinter group of the Basque 
Nationalist Party's youth 
movement. 

It engaged in violent resis- 
tance to Genera] Franco's 
forces and quickly acquired a 
Marxist philosphy. 

While ETA is outlawed, a 
Basque coalition. Herri Bata- 
suna (People's Unity) openly 
defends ETA's actions and 
promotes its political aims. 

Herri Batasuna -and ETA 
insist on a minimum pro- 
gramme of self-determination 


for the Basque country, 
known as the “K as alter- 
native". This programme in- 
cludes such demands as the 
immediate withdrawal from 
the Basque area of all army 
and police forces controlled by 
the Madrid Government. 

Herri Batasuna technically 
has parliamentary representa- 
tion in Madrid, but its two 
deputies never occupied their 
seats. 

The senior leader of ETA, 
according to the Spanish Inte- 
rior Ministry, is Senor Do- 
mingo Iturbe Abasolo, alias 
Txomin, who is serving a 
three-month prison sentence 
in southern France for having 
violated restrictions on his 
place of residence as a refugee.

East and West 
: reach messy 
compromise in | 

• passport row 

- From Frank Johnson, Bonn 

* A messy compromise is start to show their passports, 
lemeipng as the outcome of after a fashion. They, and the 
the Berlin passport affair. three Western occupiers, will 
. The embassies in East Ber- argue that, as far as they are 1 
jin of the three Western concerned, this will simply be 


powers with occupation sec- 
tors in the west of the city — 
-^Britain, the United States and 
-wJFtance — have been told by 
_^the East German Foreign 
.-^Ministry that their dipl omats 
will not after all have to' 
* produce passports when cross- 
-».ing into West Berlin. 

However, diplomats from 
^Western powers without occu- 
„ pation rights — countries 
—which include West Germany 
t^and toe rest of the Nato allies 
ir* w h] still have to produce 
—passports to enter West Berlin 
from East Berlin. 

— The non-occupying Nato 
^countries were yesterday still 
"refusing to do so, and were 
"being turned away. If they still 
--wanted to get into West 
.-•Berlin, they had to leave East 
Berlin and enter toe western 
-Thalf of toe city from toe 
.^territory of the East German 
•state. 

It is possible, however, that 
/•in the next few days they will 


an additional means of 

identification. 

They will therefore, show 
only toe first three pages of the 
passport, those containing 
name and photograph. This 
procedure will accommodate 
the East German claim that 
toe demand for toe passports 
was merely an anti-terrorist 
measure. 

Western powers remain 
convinced, however, that toe 
change had nothing to do with 
anti-terrorism, but was merely 
one of East Germany’s occa- 
sional attempts to show that 
East Berlin was its capital — a 
claim rejected by the West — 
and that its border guards in 
the city therefore had the right 
to ask diplomats for passports. 

One Western diplomat said 
yesterday that the situation 
had by now become so com- 
plicated that East German 
border guards themselves did 
not always know from whom 
to demand passports or visas.

^specifically to the right of 
freedom of movement between 
“East and West Berlin. 


Britain, the US and France 
base their opposition to the 
new regulations introduced by 
the East Germans on a mix- 
ture of rights which are implic- 
it in the London agreements of 
1944 and 1945 on the joint oc-

which have developed since. 

These agreements estab- 
lished Berlin as a special area. 


The quadripartite agree- 
ment which the four nations 
signed in September 1971 ef- 
fectively codified the rights 
and practices that had been in 
operation for the previous 
quarter century.

biguous and full of legal 
loopholes, the 1971 agreement 
states among its general provi- 
sions that the four powers

elimination of tension and the 
prevention of complications 
within the area of Barfin’*.

Pressure to 
protect 
Falklands 
fisheries 

By Nicholas Ashford 
Diplomatic Correspondent 

Britain is coming under 
renewed pressure io impose 
unila teral fisheries protection 
measures around toe Fajldand 
Islands following toe sinking 
of a Taiwanese fishing vessel 
by an Argentinian gunboat. 

Sir Rex Hunt, the former 
civil commissioner of the 
islands, said Britain should 
declare a 200-mile fishery 
protection zone around the 
islands. 

‘‘Because there is no restric- 
tion on fishing around toe 
Falklands, it has become toe 
last great fishing free-for-all in 
toe world, and the- fear is that 
the fish stocks are going to be 
destroyed.*' he said. “Before 
1982 there were about 30 
boats a day operating in the 
area. Now if s more like 300.” 
Fishing experts have said 
the islanders could be earning 
about £12 million a year from 
controlled, fishing. 

The British Government 
has turned a deaf ear to the is- 
landers* pleas, saying it would 
be impossible to police a 
fisheries protection zone: 
Instead, Britain has been 
pressing for toe establishment 
of a multi-lateral fishing re- 
gime in toe South Atlantic, to 
be arranged through toe 
Rome-based Food and Agri- 
culture Organization and po- 
liced by toe countries whose 
vessels are fishing in toe area. 

However, toe FAO report 
on the impact that the current 
level of fishing is having on 
fish stocks is still being await- 
ed by Whitehall 
• BUENOS AIRES: The Ar- 
gentine Foreign Ministry has 
claimed that toe sinking of a 
Taiwanese trawler came after 
two warnings and three warn- 
ing shots (a Correspondent 
writes).

to Mr Yitzhak Zamir, the 
Attorney-General . 

But Mr Zamir is still insist-

He now has evidence, he 1 
says, which suggests that they 1

two inquiries. 

Mr Zamir means to investih-

While refusing to withdraw \ 
his demand for an inquny.-Mr . 
Zamir has told the Govern- ,

would not investigate how 1

of the Public Prosecutors con-

from the Heysel Stadium trag- 

edy -a year -ago,, to* Justice

that the request would teach

with the Belgian equivalent of

The confusion arose when a

Tamil rebels blamed 
for 26 deaths in Sri 
Lanka bomb blasts 


Colombo #AP, Reuter) - 
Two bomb blasts blamed on 
Tamil rebels kilted 26 people 
yesterday, including 18 sol- 
diers travelling in a convoy in 
Tnncotnafee district. 

The e xplo sions went offina 
in 

the village of Pabtoppur, 
about 155 mites north-east of 
the capital, police and security 
sources said. 

Nine people from the bot- 
tling plant and 15 soldiers 
were listed in serious condi- 
tion, the sources said. 

Hospitals in Colombo said 
50 petite were admitted with 
injuries from the blast at the 
Ceylon Gold Stores, and 60 
otters were t reated and 
released. 

Twenty-five minntre after 
the plant explosion, 18 sol- 
diers were killed and 15 


injured when a hndmiw blew 
up their vehicle. 

The explosions marked the 
tees! upsurge of violence in 
the bloody dispute between 
majority Sinhalese and minor- 
ity Tamils. More than 3,000 
people have been killed in the 
conflict during the past three 
years. 

A National Security Minis- 
try qmkesman said a convoy 
of four Army vehicles was 
driving from Mnttur to 
Senjwxla in Trincomalee dis- 
trict when one of them carry- 
ing 45 soldiers hit the 
landmine. 

In Colombo, workers at the 
factory were unloading bottles 
from a lorry when the bomb 
blast shook the plant, police 
said. 

A hospital spokesman said a 
wounded man- told him the 
lorry had arrived at the factory 
from Jaffna in the north. 


stronghold of the gnemOas. 

' The factory, belonging to a 
firm wholly-owned by a Sri 
Tankan concern, is at Slave 
Island, a commercial area 
dose to the centre of the 
capital. 

A Tamil guerrilla group 
warned multinational compa- 
nies in Sri Lanka on Monday 
to pull out of the island or free 
attacks on their plants. 

The statement was issued in 
the southern Indian city of 
Madras by the Edam Revolu- 
tionary Organization of Stu- 
dents. one of five main 
guerrilla groups fighting lor a 
separate Tamil state. 

It said a bomb attack on a 
partly Japanese-owned ce- 
ment factory in eastern Sri 
Lanka last week was a warning 
to multinational companies to 
stop “swindling’ the people 
and leave the island im- 
mediately.

Moderate Contras 
gain more power 


The Nic ar agu an Contras, 
beset by congressional allega- 
tions of c orrupti on, h uman 


US finds, have finally sac- 
ceeded in revamping the civil- 
ian leadership ate taking de~ 
dare steps to improve their 
battered huge. 

The reorganization will give 
greater power to moderates, 

which may lead to the removal 

of some Contra military com- 
manders who were linked with 
the bridal regime of the fade 
Anastasio Somoza, over- 
throws by the S an dfa ris ta s m 
1979. 

Some farmer Somoza sym- 
pathizers found their way into 
foe Centra camp, where they 
continued to bold powerful po- 
iprinof^ a fret that ha* done 
much to discredit foe fighters 
with influential congressmen. 

The US Administritiou, al- 
armed by c ontinu ing farfwn 
fights among foe rebel leaders, 
onloed foe talks, which began 
nearly three weeks ago in MHa- 
mi The State Department ca- 
foosiasticafly welcomed the 
changes as "an extremely po-. 
stive step hi broadening foe 
leadership”. 

It said civilian control would 
te strengthened and tte co-or- 
dination of military activities 
would be improved. “The re- 
sistance should reflect what a 
democratic Nicaragua should 
be. We befieve the tone and 
results of these meetings meet 


that important test” 

The three dvitian leaders of 
foe rebel mhreDa group— the 
United Nicaraguan Opposi- 
tion, which is essentially a US 
creation — held a news confer- 
ence to annoimce that they had 
resolved many of their differ- 
ences and reached a power- 
sharing accord during foe 
Miami talks. 

The changes a^ear to place 
guerrilla forces raider stricter 
emttan control, while boosting 
foe mmifag of two moderate 
leaders who had recently 
threatened to resign. The re- 
forms mdnde the naming of a 
frmuM-ml watchdog and a spe- 
cial inspector to monitor com- 
bat operations. 

The Miami anmmi t boded 
down to a battle between Sendr 
Adolfo Catero, a conservative, 
and two leading moderates, 
Seafir Arturo Croz and Sendr 
Alfonso Robele. The Adminis- 
tration feared that tire contro- 
lled infighting would weaken 
the chances of congress ap- 
proving President Reagan's 
request for $100 million (67 

mfiHoa) in new aid, which will 

be defeated next month. 

The motf critical issue — foe 
removal or dfeaptining of mili- 
tary leaders — will now be 
handled by a majority rote, 
giving the moderates greater 
control over former Somoza 
National Gnard officers in the 
rebel army. 


Journalists seek £16m 
damages from rebels 

From Our Own Correspondent, Washington 


Two freelance Journalists 
have filed a $25 million (£16.6 
million) lawsuit accusing a 
group of Americans and Ni ca- 
raguan rebels of smuggling 
cocaine to finance military 
operations ag ai n st Nicar- 
agua's Sandinista Govern- 
ment. The State Department 
issued an immediate state- 
ment denying the allegations. 

Tony Aviigan and Martha 
Honey, who contributes to 
The Times from Central 
America, also accused the 30 
defendants of planting a bomb 
that exploded at a press con- 
ference on the border betweoi

The blast JdQed five people 
and injured Commander Ed6n

British nurse 
shows some 
improvement 

Hollywood, Florida (AP) — 
Miss Kathryn Mary Jones, a 
British nurse who was kid- 
napped from a telephone ki- 
osk near her Miami Beach 
hotel, brutally beaten and left 
for dead on a woodland path, 
has recovered limited speech, 
her doctor said yesterday- 
“Sbe’s waking up, and she s 
Talki ng now, although she 
doesn't make complete sen- 
tences, and she's eating. We'll 
probably even move her out of 
intensive care,” Dr Donald 
Giuliasti, a neuro-surgeon, 
said. 

“We always think the pa- 
tients are going to take a long 
time to wake up (from a 
coma), and when they wake 
up in two to three weeks, we’re 
all happy about it,” he said. 

“Bui it’s still too early to tea 
how she'll be. She recognizes 
her sister and her boyfriend, 
but she's obviously not alto- 
gether with it yet” 4 

Michael Dwayne Sieoert 
aged 18. has teen charged with 
kidnapping Miss Jones. 


The suit seeks damages for 
injuries s lemming from the 
attack, including mental 
distress. • 

It is aimed at a group of 
conservative Americans as 
well as some of the Contra 
rebels. Most prominent am- 
ong the defendants named 
were Adolfo Calero. leader of 
the Nicaraguan Democratic 
Force (FDN), and retired US 
Army General John Singlaub, 
chairman of the conservative 
World Anti-Communist 
League. 

Sedor Calero denied the 
allegations and told reporters 
in Miami: “They had better 
take out libel insurance.” 

The State Department said: 
“We categorically reject these 
charges. No credible evidence 
has been produced to substan- 
tiate them.”

Two jailed 
for eggs 
attack on 
the Queen 

From a Correspondent 
Auckland 

Two young women who 
threw eggs at the Queen in 
New Zealand have received 
the maximum penalty of six 
months' imprisonment. 

The women, Deborah Jane 
Leytand, aged 22. and Ann 
Marie Thorny, aged 21. let out 
anguished cnes when the sen- 
tence was imposed by Judge 
Lawson in the Auckland Dis- 
trict Court yesterday. 

The charge of assaulting the 
Queen arose from an incident 
at EDerslie race course. Auck- 
land. on February 24, during a 
royal walkabout 

Both women had denied the 
charge. Before the sentencing 
yesterday, their lawyer told 
the court that the women had 
not intended to insult the 
Queen personally, but were 
attacking the office of 
sovereign. 

They were young Pakeha 
(white) women with a great 
sense of personal guilt over the 
New Zealand Government's 
failure to ratify a treaty forged 
with Maoris in, 1840 under 
British rule. 

Judge Lawson said that the 
egg-throwing was a clear, pre- 
planned attack on the Queen 
in her official capacity. The 
deterrent aspect of any sen- 
tence took precedence over 
other factors. Both women are 
to appeal 


Papers reveal US request 

Australians asked 
to resettle Nazis 

From Stephen Taylor, Sydney 


Australia considered a re- 
quest by the United States 
after foe Second World War to 
resettle Klaus Barbie, the Nazi 
war criminal. Documents se- 
cured by an opposition parlia- 
mentarian under foe Freedom 
of Information Act indicate 
that foe US might also have 
tried to find sanctuary in 
Australia for other wanted 
Nazis. 

The papers, fomid by a 
liberal Senator. Mr Peter 
Baume, show that the US 
Army approached the Austra- 
lian Embassy in Cologne with 
the request to resettle Barbie. 

In a reply dated June 25, 
1952, an Australian official 
wrote that it was under consid- 
eration, but the matter appears 
to have ended there. 

Barbie, known as “The 
Butcher of Lyons”, was head 
of the Gestapo in the French 
city and has been held respon- 
sible for thousands of deaths 


ami deportations. 

Mr Baume'S di scl o su res an 
bound to renew speculation 
that Nazis mana g ed to get ten 
Australia after the war. A 
recent investigation by foe 
Australia Broadcasting Com- 

miom n flaimwi fn haw «t»h- 

I is bed evidence of this, and a 
committee of inquiry is doe to 
report to Mr Chris Harford, 
foe Immigration Minister, in 
about two weeks. 

Speaking in Ptertiament, Mr 
Baume named a fellow mem- 
ber of the Liberal Party, the 
leader of an extreme right- 
wing faction in New South 
Wales known os “The 
Ugfies” as havhig been in- 
volved with Nazism. 

Mr Lyealto Uitanchkh was 
not a war criminal, bat as a 
Croatian nationalist had col- 
laborated with the Nazis in 
Yugoslavia, Mr Baume said, 
and should be exp died from 
the Liberal Party.

SPORTING 
DIARY 

Simon Barnes 


Clive of 
Australia? 

Clive Lloyd, that great and genu- 
inely enormous West Indian crick- 
eter, could be joining the 
Australians as coach or manager 
of the national team. There had 
been speculation, and indeed, 
promises, that he would take up a 
similar job for the West Indians — 
but nothing has happened. Indeed, 
Wes Hall, their touring manager, 
has said that Lloyd would not be 
up to the job. 

So, why did Lloyd give up the 
captaincy of the West Indies? It 
was because of increasing dissen- 
sion in the West Indian dressing- 
room. Things had reached the 
stage where Lloyd doubted that 
most of the leading players would 
give of their best under him. His 
troops, ambitious and anxious, 
were getting increasingly restive as 
speculation about his successor 
grew. Along with Richards, the 
current captain. Holding and 
Gomes were considered strong 
candidates for the job. 

People have also wondered why 
Lloyd has not become Sir Clive. 
Does this represent royal dis- 
approval of Lloyd's speed-and- 
mo re-speed tactics? Not at alL 
Guyanese nationals are actively 
discouraged from accepting such 
honours. One assumes that Her 
Majesty would not offer a knight- 
hood knowing that it would 
almost certainly be refused. 

Lloyd’s list 

Meanwhile. Mike Brearley, the 
former England captain, is prob- 
ably not on Lloyd's Christinas 
card list. Give was more than 
upset by Brearley's criticisms of 
him in his book The Art of 
Captaincy, in which he wrote of 
Lloyd becoming “cynical in the 
exercise of power”. This was “a 
futile attempt to discredit me". 
Lloyd replies, among other revela- 
tions in Trevor McDonald’s up- 
dated and newly paperbacked 
book Clive Lloyd.

The best sports books title of the 
year is certain to belong to Frank 
Keating's book on Ian Botham, 
soon to be published. It is called

pleasant follow-up to the West

“Somerset do it on grass".

Wednesday, is a puzzler. No single

found meditation. I am going for a

Punt to point 

lan Bathgate plans to be the first 
man to pole a terrifyingly unstable 
racing punt from Lechlade to 
Teddington. These craft are 34 
feet long, less than a foot wide, and 
a man can carry one under his arm 
quite comfortably. The ordinary 
picnic punts — tricky enough to 
handle, in all conscience — are a 
chunky three feet wide. Bathgate's 
efforts are part of the ambitions of 
Diflon’s Skiff and Punting Club to 
navigate the Thames in racing 
punts in September. Most will be 
in “two-foot" punts, which take 
two men and are two feet wide. 

Wizards of Oz 

No one, no matter how hard he 
tried, could forget the Australian 
cricketing soap opera Bodyline \ 
that glorious celebration of what 
has long been recognized as the 
longest w hinge in sporting history. 
Hot on its heels comes a new soap 
opera, to celebrate what threatens 
to become history’s longest piece 
of unseemly crowing: the Austra- 
lian victory in the America’s Cup. 
The show is called The Challenge 
and is billed as “how the boys 
from Down Under came out on 
top". We should have it on our 
screens in the autumn. Lucky us. 

Tossing the cash 

How much does it cost to bag the 
Olympic Games? The quick an- 
swer is, a fortune. The cities 
bidding for the 1 992 Olympics will 
be spending a total of £31.5 mil- 
lion on self-publicity: for the 
summer games, Amsterdam and 
Birmingham will each spend 
£2J million, Brisbane £4 million, 
Paris £5.5 million and Barcelona 
£6 million. For the winter games, 
Sofia will spend £1 million, Cor- 
tina £1.5 million, LiUehammer 
£1.5 million, Albertville £3 mil- 
lion and Fallun £4 million. 
Amsterdam has sent a telex to all 
competing cities, suggesting an 
agreement on expenditure and 
conductof lobbying. Birmingham 
at least has agreed to this. Only the 
two cities that come out on lop 
will have anything to show for all 
the expense.

Tom Paulin: why art must reflect contemporary concerns 

The polities of poetry 


We have been taught, many of us. 
to believe that art and politics are 
separated by the thickest and most 
enduring of partitions. An is a 
garden of pure perfect forms 
which effortlessly “transcends” 
that world of compromise, cruelty, 
dead language and junk cars which 
Manicheans dismiss as mere poli- 
tics. Art stands for freedom, while 
politics is a degrading bondage we 
must reject and escape from. 
Indeed, there is an influential 
school of literary criticism - 
appropriately, it dominates lit- 
erary studies in the United States 
— which argues that the political 
and historical content of literature 
must be dismissed as “extrinsic 
irrelevance". 

The practitioner of close read- 
ing agrees with Henry Ford that 
history is bunk and enforces that 
belief with a series of fallacies — 
biographical, intentional, histori- 
cal. “personalist", ideological. 
Like intimidating heresies, these 
supposedly fallacious ways of 
reading literature are designed to 
hinder the reader who believes 
that there is often a relationship 
between art and politics, rather 
than a clear-cut opposition be- 
tween formal garden and contin- 
gent scrapheap. 

The poet who elects to write 
about political reality is no dif- 
ferent from the poet who chooses 
love, landscape or a painting by 
Cezanne as the subject for a poem. 
The choice of a political subject 
entails no necessary or complete 
commitment to an ideology — 
Burns, for example, was a radical 
republican but he nevertheless 
based Charlie He’s My Darling on 
popular Jacobite songs about the 
Young Pretender. He could com- 
bine a dedicated egalitarianism 


hegemony in these islands. And 
although Eliot offered a strategic 
defence of Burns’s verse, his 
subversion of Milton's reputation 
was a major act of cultural 
desecration (the subsequent mod- 
ification in Eliot's attitude did not 
repair the damage). 

Both Arnold and Eliot adopt a 
romantic, curiously puritan and 
personal attitude to Milton — 
Arnold criticizes his “asperity and 
acerbity, his want of sweetness of 
temper", while Eliot confesses “an 
antipathy towards Milton the 
man”. Abetted by Lea vis, the 




Milton: a dedicated 
servant of liberty 


with a pride in the House of Stuart 
that was both personal and na- 
tional. And if Bums had been 
more extensively cavalier in his 
sympathies. Arnold might not 
have dismissed him as a “Scotch” 
provincial who speaks in a bogus 
voice, lacks high seriousness and 
has mistakenly elected to write 
about a “harsh, a sordid, a 
repulsive world". 

Bums is one of the most notable 
victims of the aristocratic, hierar- 
chical, conservative tradition 
which Arnold and T.S. Eliot have 
floated as the major cultural 


Arnold: proponent of a 
hierarchical approach 

Scrutiny group, the New Critics 
and that reactionary theologian, 
C.S. Lewis, Eliot was able to 
rewrite English literary history 
and almost obliterate the Prot- 
estant prophetic tradition. And as 
David Norbrook has pointed out 
in his brilliant, pioneering study. 
Poetry and Politics in the English 
Renaissance, the Renaissance po- 
etic tradition culminated in Mil- 
ton, a figure whose 
uncompromising republicanism 
places his views even today out- 
side framework of political dis- 
cussion in England. Eliot and 
Lea vis did not flinch from a drastic 
solution: Milton must be declared 
to have been a bad poet, and 
“dislodged” from the canon. 

As Norbrook reminds those of 
us .who still revere Milton as the 
greatest English poet and the most 
dedicated servant of English lib- 
erty, some of the major Renais- 
sance poets were politicians. But 
this unsettling historical fact was 
pushed out ofthe cultural memory 
by a group of literary critics 
dedicated to a ‘transcendental” 
vision which ostensibly depoliti- 
cized art 

This orthodoxy has meant that 
students of English literature have 
for several generations now Jbeen 
encouraged to believe that Mil- 
ton's theology is entirely separate 
from whatever his political beliefs 
might have happened to be. And 
in any case, Milton has been 
smeared by T.S. Eliot as a master 
of “a dead language” and was 
therefore a writer who might be 
respectably avoided. 

The ghost of an earlier entryiste. 
Edmund Burke, must have smiled 
at Eliot’s enterprise, and Arnold's 
eccentric praise of that Irish 
counter-revolutionary as “our 
greatest English prose-writer” is 


one of his more ‘interested 11 or 
committed critical judgements, 
even though Arnold astutely bal- 
ances it with a criticism of Burke”s 
stylistic extravagance and 
‘Asiatic” provinciality. 

Together, Arnold and Eliot 
ensured that the magic of mon- 
archy and superstition permeated 
Fn giich literary criticism and 
education like a syrupy drug. 
Fortunately, the work of Chns- 
tophe Hill challenges the bland, 
unhis tori cal insidiously tenden- 
tious readings of Milton which 
have been dominant until re- 
cently, andT in lime it may be 
generally acknowledged that Mil- 
ton is no more a non-political 
writer than Joyce was - or Dante, 
or Yirgil. 

One of the dogmas of the 
ahistorical school of literary criti- 
cism is the belief that political 
commitment necessarily d am ag e s 
a poem. Thus poets tend to be 
praised for their liberal open- 
mindedness, their freedom from 
the constricting dictates of ideol- 
ogy. As Douglas Bush has shown, 
Cleantta Brooks transforms 
MarvelTs H oral ion Ode into an 
expression of modern “uncom- 
mitted" liberalism. Yet the two 
greatest political poems in En- 
glish — Paradise Lost and 
Absalom and Achitophel — are 
wcnrks of the committed imagina- 
tion. Milton was a republican, a 
regicide, the official propagandist 
ofthe English parliament. Drydcn 
became a monarchist and a Tory 
after the Restoration. Their politi- 
cal beliefs are fundamental to their 
poems and our reading is enriched 
by a knowledge of those beliefs 
and an understanding of the social 
experience which helped to form 
them (I say “helped" because in 
the end we accede to a political 
position by an act of faith — 
Milton’s essentia] faith was love of 
liberty, Dryden’s love of order). 

In the Western democracies it is 
still possible for many readers, 
students and teachers of literature 
to share the view that poems exist 
in a timeless vacuum or a sound- 


dosed 
the 


in 


condition. In those col 
societies a liberal beik 
separation of the public from the 
private life is not possible. Nor is 
it possible to believe that a poet 
may permit himself only an 
occasional interest in politics, or 
adopt a position which in the West 
would be termed ^purely aesthetic 
and non-political”. 

The ironic gravity and absence 
of hope in poets such as Zbigniew 
Herbert, Rdzewicz, Holub, re- 
mind us that in Eastern Europe 
the poet has a responsibility both 
to art and to society, and that this 
responsibility is single and in- 
divisible. The poet, in Joyce’s 
special use of the term, is ( the 
“conscience” of his or her society. 
Although the imagination can be 
strenihened rather than distorted 
by ideology, my definitio n of a 
political poem does not assume 



W 


Eliot a rewriting of 
literary history 



Drydem monarchist 
who loved order 

proof museum, and that poets are 
■gifted with an ability to hold 
themselves above history, rather 
like skylarks or weather satellites. 
However, in some societies, 
particularly totalitarian ones, his- 
tory is a more or less inescapable 


that such poems necessarily make 
an ideological statement. They can 
instead embody a general histori- 
cal awareness rather than offering 
a specific attitude to state affairs. 

Almost invariably a political 
poem is a public poem, and it 
often begins in a direct response to 
a current event, just as a pamphlet 
or a piece of journalism brings 
from mid addresses a particular 
historical moment This is true of 
Dryden’s Absalom and Achitophel, 
Yeats’s Easter 1916 and Auden’s 
Spain. Unfortunately for several 
generations now, critics and teach- 
ers have for the most part been 
content to stress the “universal” 
or “timeless" idea ofthe poem and 
to blot out the living social 
moment of its production. Just as 
the opening night of a play’s first 
production is a vital pan of that 
play's meaning, so the moment 
when a poem first became a social 
object is essential to our under- 
standing of its significance. That 
moment of production, like lan- 
guage itself is fluent and needs to 
be seized by the reader’s historical 
imagination. It is my hope that 
future generations will break 
through the barriers which have 
been set up between history and 
art. A culture which abolishes 
memory from the interpretation 
of literary texts is surely doomed.

Michael Hornsby finds a parallel to the anti-Botha backlash 


Johannesburg 

The crisp autumn air of the 
Highveld will be crackling with 
historical echoes today, the 25th 
anniversary of Republic Day, as 
supporters of far-right organiza- 
tions converge on the Voortrekker 
Monument, high on a stony 
“koppie” outside Pretoria, for a 
mass rally which they hope will 
give decisive impetus to the 
gathering groundswell of white 
opposition to the South African 
government's cautious relaxation 
of apartheid. 

The foundation stone of the 
monument, a squat structure of 
brownish stone visible for miles 
around, was laid in 1938 to mark 
the centenary of the Great Trek, 
when some 14,000 Boer families, 
with their black and coloured 
servants, migrated inland from the 
Cape to escape what they felt was 
the intolerable yoke ofBritish rule. 

The noble desire for indepen- 
dence was tainted by a less 
edifying resentment of the lib- 
eralizing features of British rule, 
such as the freeing of slaves in 
1834. “It is not (so much) their 
freedom that drives us to such 
lengths, as their being placed on an 
equal footing with Christians, con- 
trary to the laws of God and the 
natural distinctions of race and 
religion", Anna Steen kamp, the 
sister of Piet Relief, one of the 
Voortrekker leaders, declared. 

The 1938 centenary ceremony 
was attended by an estimated 

100.000 people. Many had earlier 
taken pan in a symbolic restaging 
ofthe Great Trek; a small group of 
idealistic Afrikaners, dressed in 
period costume, had set out in ox- 
wagons from Cape Town, picking 
up thousands of followers on their 
slow progress to Pretoria, nearly 

1.000 miles away. 

One of the organizations behind 
that deeply emotional pilgrimage, 
which gave a huge boost to the 
burgeoning cause of Afrikaner 
nationalism, was the "purified" 
National Party of D.F. Malan, 
whose successors, after nearly 40 
years in power, now stand accused 
by a new generation of Afrikaner 
puritans of betraying that self- 
same cause. 

In the person of President 
P.W. Botha, the wheel of history 
has come full circle. In 1936, as a 
youth of 20. he joined Dr Malan's 
fledgling party. Two years earlier it 
had broken with General J.B.M. 
Henzog's original National Party, 
disgusted by Hertzog's decision to 
join forces with General Jan 
Smuts in the United Party, which 
favoured cooperation between 
Afrikaans and English-speaking 
whites. 

Gangs of NP toughs regularly 
disrupted United Party meetings, 
using thuggish tactics very similar 
to those now employed by Eugene 
Terre Blanche's neo-fascist Afri- 
kaner Weerstandsbeweging 
(AWB), tactics which President 
Botha, who is said to have been an 
("litiMci.ictiV oart ici rant in the 



Afrikanerdom united: the inauguration of the Voortrekker Monument in 1949 


Full circle for 
the laager 


brawls of the 1930s, now piously 
deplores. 

The historical parallels do not 
end there. The AWB bears a 
striking resemblance to the 
Ossewabrandwag (OB) — in En- 
glish, ox-wagon fire guard — a 
■ para-military organization formed 
in early 1939 which became the 
■main focus for Afrikaner oppo- 
sition to South Africa's entry into 
the Second World War on 
Britain’s side, a decision that 
caused even more turmoil within 
the “volk” than the present 
government’s policies. 

Then the cabinet split down the 
middle. Hertzog, the prime min- 
ister, and Smuts, his deputy, look 
opposing sides. Hertzog's motion 
in favour of neutrality was put to 
parliament and narrowly defeated. 
The English-speaking governor- 
general Patrick Duncan, refused 
Henzog's request to dissolve the 
assembly and hold elections. In- 
stead he asked Smuts to form a 
government, and Hertzog re- 
signed 

About one in three Afrikaners of 
military age volunteered to fight 
alongside their English-speaking 
compatriots. Many more joined 
the OB. which at the height of its 
popularity claimed some 400,000 
members. Much given to Nazi- 
styte parades and torchlight rallies, 
the OB also had a storm trooper 
unit which tried to sabotage the 


war effort by blowing up electric- 
ity pylons and railway tracks. 

Membership of the OB and the 
NP overlapped Botha briefly 
belonged to the OB until his 
mentor. Dr Malan. fearing that it 
might usurp the position of the 
NP, issued an edict prohibiting 
dual membership. Some Afri- 
kaners, including John Vorster. 
later to be Botha's predecessor as 
prime minister, refused to have 
the OB, and were interned by the 
government 

Saturday night brawls between 
gangs of OB supporters and 
soldiers became a routine feature 
of South African life. Then, as 
now, the loyalty of the police was 
suspect. A commission of inquiry 
set up after one particularly savage 
punch-up in Johannesburg, which 
lasted for two days, found that 
policemen had jomed in with a 
will kicking and batoning soldiers 
as they lay on the ground 

As tite tide of war turned against 
Hitler, support for the OB rapidly 
waned. The organization was 
never banned however, and long 
after the NP came to power in 
1948, Afrikaners continued to 
view the OB’S exploits in a heroic 
light, even as they denounced the 
“terrorism” of the emerging breed 
of black nationalist rebels who 
adapted much the same tech- 
niques of sabotage in pursuit of 
their own idea of liberation. 

General Smuts’s chief crime, in 


the eyes of Afrikaner fun- 
damentalists. was not that he was 
too kind to blacks (his views on 
that subject were only mildly more 
liberal than those of Dr Malan), 
but rather that he had thrown in 
his lot with the Boers’ ancestral 
enemy, the English. The tortured 
relationship between “Boer and 
Brit" was still the dominant theme 
of South African politics. Blacks, . 
and their political demands, were 
a sideshow. 

Today, President Botha feces 
exactly the reverse situation. Most 
whites, even most Afrikaners, 
know that the atavistic antics of 
TerreBlanche and his followers 
represent the last thrashings of a 
near-extinct dinosaur and not the 
dawn of a brave new world If the 
Afrikaner right has an influence 
out of all proportion to its 
numbers, it is largely because 
Botha is still a (partly willing) 
prisoner of the notion that Ins 
chief duty as an Afrikaner leader is 
to preserve the unity of the tribe. 

The demographic reality is that 
even if half the Afrikaner commu- 
nity deserted the NP, the govern- 
ment could still hope to command 
the support of a majority of the 
white electorate by increasing its 
following among English-speakers 
or even entering into coalition 
with the liberal Progressive Fed- 
eral Party to its left. 

Thai however, is a quantum 
leap that President Botha seems 
emotionally unable to make, de- 
spite the courage he showed in 
shrugging off the defection of the 
Treuraicht faction, and the con- 
sequent formation of the Conser- 
vative Party, in 1982. He still 
shrinks from the wholesale sac- 
rifice of Afrikaner solidarity that 
would probably be involved in 
entering into negotiations with the 
African National Congress.

Thatcherism’s 
crash landing 


Throughout her career Mrs 
Thatcher has been widely re- 
garded as domineering and dic- 
tatorial In the public eye. the 
Westland affair confirmed it. In 
feet it was her anxiety sot to be too 
autocratic which caused her gov- 
ernment its greatest trouble, Inters 
viewed on television soon after 
Leon Briztan resigned as Trade 
and Industry Secretary, the Pm® 
Minister was asked whv she had 
not disciplined Michael Head lin e 
much earlier — if necessary, 
dismissing him. She had not done 
so, she said, because everyone 
would have accused her of being a 
-bossy-boots”. 

According to Magnus L mktaic r 
and David Leigh, authors of the 
first book on the affair (Hot With 
Honour , Sphere, £3.95), on 
December 18 she had discussed 
with a group of dose advisers the 
possibility of issuing an ul- 
timatum to Hesdtine- S he a c- 
cepted the advice of Bernard 
Ingham, her press secretary, that 
she should dol The crisis deep- 
ened and dragged on. 

Instead of weighing in* Mrs 
Thatcher skirted round. She did 
not order Hesdtine to obey but 
ensured *hai other departments 
did not co-operate with him. She 
did not openly support Westland 
linking with Sikorsky but did take 
care that Sir John Cuckney, the 
Westland chairman and a sup- 
porter of Sikorsky, was better 
informed than his opponents. 

Her office caused the Solid tor- 
General’s letter about “material 
inaccuracies" in a teller of 
Heseltine's to be leaked, but n was 
Brittan, not the Prime Minister or 
any of her officials, who paid for 
the impropriety. Mis Thatcher is 
famous for being blunt Through- 
out this crisis she was evasive. 

As the authors delight in point- 
ing out the Westland story is 
discreditable to the government It 
revealed seediness, dishonesty, 
confusion and panic. But the book 
does not really explain why mat- 
ters came to such a pass, why did 
a government allegedly as vig- 
orously directed as Mrs Thatcher’s 
stumble over something so trivial? 

the triviality. In the context the 
major issues of industrial policy, 
Westland was peripheral Even in 
defence policy it was not very 
important There was no reason 
why senior politicians should pay 
much attention to it When 
Heseltine threw himself into the 
subject his colleagues were be- 
wildered. 

From an initial agnosticism 
about the sale. Heseltine moved to 
passionate partisanship: As he 
leaked and threatened and caused 
letters to be written, as he sud- 
denly jumped up at a Cabinet 
meeting and said that he was 


resigning; as he appeared again 
and again oh television and 
claimed that “an issue of fun- 
damental constitutional prin- 
ciple” was at slake, people found it 
difficult to understand what was 
driving him. And" when he rose in 
the Co mmon s debate after resign- 
ing gad suppo rte d the govern- 
ment. forgetting the “fundamental 
constitutional issue" bewilder- 
ment mined to derision. 

In a story in which dashes of 
personality are very important, 
Heseltine's character may be the 
central factor. His mixture of 
ambition and recklessness must 
have been impossible to deal with. 
It weal fer beyond the ordinary 
desire of a cabinet minister to 
advance himself When Mrs 
Thatcher said “It was a kind of 
period we hope never to go 
Through a g ain, when one member 
of a team isn't quite working as a 
member of a team", she was 
understating the truth. 

Di sag r e ements with colleagues 
notoriously make everyone be- 
have much more foolishly than 
■ptwfc* from avowed opponents. 
If a minister as senior as Hesdtine 
asked for trouhte he was bound to 
get it, because he was putting an 
unexpected strain on the govern- 
ment. Mrs Thatcher’s response 
revealed the limitations of her 
pebtica] skxDs and the impurity of 
some of her methods. 

The most depressing aspect of 
the tale is the light it throws on 
modem politics as they affect 
industry, particularly military in- 
dustry. 'The authors rightly point 
out that it was disingenuous of the 
government to talk of Westland 
having a free choice in the light of 
“market forces” when it was itself 
applying political and commercial 
pressure. 

Westland was used in tawdry 
arguments about patriotism and 
as a means of furthering or 
countering anti-Americanism. 
Heseltine made it the occasion for 
his agreement with the armaments 
directors of Britain, France. West 
Germany and Italy on a new 
European helicopter policy. Pres- 
tige, diplomacy, votes — every- 
thing mattered except, h seems, 
whether Westland could be a well- 
run, profitable enterprise. 

The world of Westland is one in 
which Mrs Thatcher puts a huge 
diplomatic effort into selling the 
utterly unsuitable Westland W 30 
helicopter to India. (The govern- 
ment has already lost £40 minion 
in a “loan” to Westland to build 
the W 30s.) This inane process is 
called “battmg for Britain". West- 
land provides a classic Thatcherite 
critique of interventionist policies, 
but here it was the Thatcher gov- 
ernment that did the intervening.

OED to the 
new tech 


After church, Mark Twain con- 
gratulated Dr Doane, later Bishop 
of Albany, on an enjoyable ser- 
mon: “I welcomed it as an old 
friend; I have a bode at home 
containing every word of it”. Dr 
Doane bridled: “I am sure you 
have not". Twain: “Indeed I 
have”. Doane: “Well I'd like to 
have a look at it. Send it over, 
please". The next day Twain sent 
him his set ofthe Oxford English 
Dictionary. 

We are celebrating a landmar k 
in the life of our dictionary. It was 
not the first on historical prin- 
ciples; the brothers Grimm started 
the Deutsches WOrterbudi' a bit 
earlier. But the OED is one.pf the 
few to have reached the letter 2; 
and it has just become the only 
one with a complete Supplement 
for this century. 

■ It is the greatest dictionary of 
any modern language. This is 
partly because ofthe size, hospital- 
ity and putty-like plasticity of the 
English vocabulary; and partly 
because of the quality and di- 
versity of English literature. The 
OED also owes a lot to the virtues 
of the remarkable men who have 
edited it, from Sir James Murray 
to Dr Robert Burchfield, neither 
of them, significantly, as English- 
man. and neither in sympathy 
with the contemporary academic 
fashions of English faculties. Both 
were caught in the web of words 
for most of their lives. But, nnlike 
other lexicographers, both man- 
aged to spin the web into order 
without becoming tied down like 
Gulliver. 

The Supplement is nbt just a 
landmark, but also a 1 turning 
point. It is the last great book to be 
set in typ by hot metal Tomor- 
row to the flickering green screen 
and computerization, which is 
revolutionizing dictionaries as 
well as newspapers. IBM ma- 
chines and programmers are al- 
ready integrating the 6,000 pages 
of the Supplement into the 21,000 
pages of the parent OED, a task to 
tax the most sophisticated soft- 
ware. They will now be able to 
revise the original entries, either in 
alphabetical order, or treating first 
the sensitive entries, such as those 
reflecting Victorian attitudes to 
savages and slavery; and cridtet, 
metamorphosed by Packer, 

The new technology of print has 
vastly increased the speed and size 
of dictionary-making. Earlier this 
year the French started to talk 
about cohabitation in a new 
political sense. The new meaning 
was in the Oxford data-base by the 
end of the week. The vocabulary 
of a widely diffused and highly 
cultivated frying language is not a 
fixed quantity circumscribed by 


definite limits. Dr Murray spoke 
of Lexicon totius Anglicitatis. But 
in practice his notion ofa Lexicon 
of All English was Utopian. Both 
he and Dr Burchfield had to set 
boundaries if they were to finish 
the job, and produce something of 
publishable size. 

The new technology has 
changed all that. The English 
language is like an accordion, 
stretchable to the limits of an 
editor’s arms and assiduity. The 
computerized data-base is produc- 
ing an accordion stretchable to the 
horizon. Within a year or two 
those who pay for a c cess will be 
able to buy this colossal word store 
on CD-ROMs (Compact Disc 
Read-Only Memories, for those 
outside The Fancy.) 

Shall we include proper names 
as wefl as other words in our 
dictionary, so that, for example, 
under Dallas we can look up the 
city in Texas, the soppy soap 



Ovts womea 

opera, and any worthies named 
Dallas in feet or fiction? Or shall 
we keep proper names and other 
words separately? High tech 
means we can do both. Shall we 
think again about recording oral 
E n glis h ? Ninety-nine per cent of 
English is spoken, not written. 

The OED has taken the view 
that as soon as a new word is 
spoken, somebody writes it down 
somewhere. Tapes and floppy 
discs enable us to record the word 
exactly as ft is spoken, so making 
possible a dictionary organized on 
synchronic as well as historical 
principles. Press a button to hear 
how the word is pronounced by a 
middle-aged woman in Belfast,

Man is the animal that speaks. 
English-speakers (fufl and part- 
time) — which means • half the 
world's population — are lucky in - 
the revolution that is making allnf 
it accessible at the tap of a button.

NAVAL MANOEUVRES 


The long-running naval 
engagement between the short 
fat warship and the long thin 
one seems to be entering its 
final phase — for at least the 
second time in three years. 
Seldom do issues of naval 
procurement so grip the 
im a g i nat ion of the press — or 
provoke so much bitterness in 
Whitehall. It has rumbled cm 
and off for most of this decade 
and has antecedents stretching 
back ten years and more. 
Against this background, die 
Prime Minister's decision to 
set up an independent inquiry, 
following the latest salvo from 
the short fat warship's guns, is 
unusual but unquestionably 
right. 

The few facts which are 
uncontested are simple 
enough. Three years ago the 
Ministry of Defence decided 
on a long and narrow tra- 
ditional design for the Royal 
Navy's new Type-23 frigate, 
despite vigorous opposition 
from a radical outside alter- 
native. This was the S-90, a 
shorter, broader-beamed 
competitor from the Isle of 
Wight company Thorny croft 
Giles. The c laims maria by the 
company that its brainchild 
could out-gun and out-per- 
form the official candidate, 
were rejected by the ministry 
in 1983. And that, it seemed, 
was than 

The decision to reopen the 
argument which has never 
been entirely stilled, was taken 
because of this week’s report 
by ah unofficial committee 
under the leadership of Ad- 
miral of the Fleet Lord HIU- 
Norton — a former chief of the 
defence staff and one-time 
chairman of Nato's Military 
Committee. His committee 
concluded not only that the S- 
90 design offered significant 
advantages in terms of sea- 
keeping, speed, weapon-siting 
and living space, but that it 
could also be built more 
quickly and more cheaply. Its 
estimated price of £73m was 
25 per cent lower than the 
£100m cost (at least) of con- 


ventional Type-23s, the first of 
•which is now under construc- 
tion pn the Clyde. The 
committee has also claimed 
that some underlying technical 
information was ? n » cc iirp t*» 

It is not the first time -that 
aspersions have been cast on 
the deci son-making process 
over the Type-23 design. This 
newspaper has previously re- 
ported an allegation that the 
results of a successful series of 
tests carried out for 
Thornycroft Giles by, among 
.others, the National Maritime 
Institute were rejected out of 
hand by the ministry. Another 
report has even referred to 
“bugging devices* being found' 
and removed before a lun- 
cheon meeting of the S-90 
lobby at Brooks club in St 
James's. 

Now, it is extremely difficult 
for people outside the' 
specialised area of marine 
engineering to make a judge- 
ment upon such an issue. 
Comparisons of seakeeping 
performance and cruising 
Speed demand special exper- 
tise. The Hill-Norton commit- 
tee contains a number, of 
highly successful men, includ- 
ing Lord Strathcona, a former 
minister of state at the Min- 
istry of Defence, Professor 
R.V Jones the Second Worid 
War scientist, and Dr. Richard 
Garwin, the eminent Ameri- 
can defence physicist and 
strategic analyst But even they 
would . probably lack 
specialised knowledge on the 
central issues. 

They are distinguished 
enough, however, and their 
report is detailed enough, to 
underline doubts which have 
continued to surround the 
Type-23 controversy. The cost 
factor alone, if correct, is 
enough to give pause for 
thought at a time when the 
defence budget is coming un- 
der particularly heavy pres- 
sure. The Type-23 was, after 
all, conceived as a relatively 
inexpensive frigate. 

The Royal Navy is con- 
cerned by the prospect of 
reopening the argument if only 


because it might set back its 
shipbuilding programme. The 
Royal Corps of Naval 
Constructors, based at Bath, 
who have dominated British 
warship design since before the 
First World War, apparently 
remain convinced that the 
claims for the S-90 are based 
on false premisses and mis- 
calculation. Perhaps they are 
right. But the argument has 
continued for so long, and has 
recently grown so intense, that 
the RCNC themselves would 
surely benefit from an inquiry 
to settle it once and for all 

, . But who is to conduct it? As 
.all the country’s naval archi- 
tects seem to be divided on the 
issue, and as few people out- 
ride their chosen speciality can 
understand the technicalities, 
the pool of available names 
•must be considered very small. 
A marine engineer is under- 
stood to have been ap- 
proached, with a view to his 
producing a report before the 
end of this year. It is arguable, 
however, that Whitehall 
should have endorsed the Hill- 
Norton committee’s recom- 
mendation of a high court 
judge to conduct the inquiry, 
with one or two technical 
experts to advise Him. 

It is significant that the main 
purpose of the inquiry will be 
to examine the way in which 
the 1983 decision was reached. 
Ami d all the claims and 
counter claims, this has be- 
come the central issue in this 
uneasy affair. At the same 
time, one should not forget 
that the original objective was 
to design the most cost-effec- 
tive warship possible for the 
navy. If the inquiry finds 
serious faults in the decision- 
making, the navy should be 
prepared to re-examine the 
options for its fleet of surface 
escorts. This country has a 
sorry reputation for wasting its 
inventive genius by bureau- 
cratic ineptitude and lack of 
official imagination, litis is 
not necessarily the case this 
time. But the Government has 
a doty to make sure. 


LISTEN TO THE HEADS 


Many voluntary organizations 
present a less alluring face 
when they gather for annual 
conference. The recent Police 
Federation conference, is an 
example: did the angry 
speeches in the hall really 
reflect the views of the con- 
stable on the beat? A parallel 
question can be asked of the 
National Association of Head 
Teachers meeting in Wales 
this week. 

Heads cannot afford ir- 
responsibility. They, not the 
teachers nor education officers 
nor governors, have to decide 
to keep schools open and to 
look after the children when 
there is no lunchtime cover. 
The jarring language of ex- 
tremism, occasionally heard 
this week, does not suit them. 
The NAHT is a voice which 
both parents and politicians 
ought to listen to. 

The message it delivered 
concerned salaries for teachers 
and the new 16-plus examina- 
tion. Teachers' pay cannot be 
shelved, but, as long as talks 
between councils and teachers’ 
leaders are taking place under 
the auspices of Acas, there is 


little the Government need 
directly do. The General 
Certificate of Secondary 
Education is different . 

The GCSE is no ideal re- 
form. It has a mixed parentage, 
owing too much to misplaced 
egalitarianism and too little to 
a creative effort to provide a 
vocationally oriental school- 
leaving qualification. But in 
the last few months the 
examination has been the 
subject of a rhetorical war. The 
speech makers — teachers’ 
representatives for the most 
part — who have made threats, 
must be called irresponsible. 
They have sown doubt in the 
minds of parents whether 
September will see the 
examination up and running. 

Mr Hart of the NAHT and 
his colleagues in the main 
talked instead of practical 
possibilities. The GCSE can 
get off the ground, in time, if 
groundwork is done now and 
in die summer holiday; if 
books are bought, and teachers 
geared up. They even put a 
price tag on it. 

Thd government is entitled 
to question the figure. But the 


ha g glin g should be brief The 
Government has already rec- 
ognized its duty to pay the 
incremental costs arising from 
the reform. It is evident that 
new syllabuses will be re- 
quired. New marking disci- 
pline will require teachers to 
re-think procedure, to take 
time out at teachers’ courses. 

Yesterday a conciliatory Mr 
Patten insinuated that more 
money might be forthcoming. 
As important as the 
arithmetic, however, is the 
method of spending. The 
GCSE is a candidate for 
speedy action of the kind 
needed if the Government is to 
accomplish two ends. One of 
these is the ambition to be seen 
by the public to be ameliorat- 
ing public services. 

The other matters more. It is 
to restore to classrooms, 
school common rooms, and 
local authority offices, not just 
a sense of common purpose 
but vitality as welL It is 
difficult to resist the conclu- 
sion of the headteachers that 
such new spirit will have to be 
purchased with extra public 
money. 


FOURTH LEADER 


It is reported that the National 
Front has been writing to 
members of the Militant Ten- 
dency in Liverpool, urging 
them to abandon their present 
political allegiance and cleave 
to the NF instead. And there is 
method — not much, but some 
— in their apparent madness; 
the NF has been pointing out, 
it seems, that both groups 
draw their main support from 
the same areas of the working 
cl ass, and that both oppose the 
sinister and brutal activities of 
the capitalists. If any Mi lita n t, 
therefore, has become disillu- 
sioned with his leaders (and it 
has to be said that Mr Derek 
Hatton does wear some sus- 
piciously capitalist suits), there 
will be a welcome waiting for 
him at the rival shop as soon as 
he has crossed the road. 

Those who think that the 
Militant Tendency and the 
National Front would always 
be uneasy bedfellows should 
understand that once a man 
has sufficiently parted com- 
pany with reason to embrace 
either of these curious doo- 
trines, it will require no great 
leap for him to change it for 
the other. A man who believes 
that the earth is flat can more 
easily be persuaded that ft is 
cylindrical than a man who 
obstinately continues to be- 
lieve that "ft is round. 

The fissi parousness of 
political extremists has been 
often remarked upon, and has 


as often given the rest of us 
much' comfort, but there is 
even more to be had from the 
knowledge that on points of 
doctrine quite invisible to the 
rest of us they hate each other 
far more than those who reject - 
them ah. But the invisibility of 
the differences is even more 
remarkable than the hate; 
Chesterton thought ft matter 
for wonder when he found a 
man who “could tell the 
difference between Mr As- 
quith and Mr Balfour, but 
could not tell one kind of 
Socialist from another kind of 
Socialist”, and it has got a 
great deal worse (or, depend- 
ing on which way yon look at 
it, better) since. 

In bis pamphlet Tracts for 
the Times, published in 1983, 
Mr Charles El well attempted a 
complete catalogue raisonni 
of the groups of the extremist 
left; he might as well have tried 
to take a census of the mayfly 
population, and his study 
must have been out of date 
before the rod ink was dry on 
it. But those who are content 
to read ft for its poetry rather 
than its political guidance can 
still enjoy such majestic pas- 
sages as: 

the Communist Peaty, the 
Hew Communist Party, the 
Militant Tendency,, the Social- 
ist Organiser Alliance, the 
Workers’ Socialist League, the 
Socialist Workers’ Party : the 
international Marxist Group, 


the Workers' Revolutionary 
Party, the Chartist Collective . 
the Workers' Power Group, the 
Revolutionary Communist 
Party, the International Com- 
munist Current, the Big 
Flame, the Black Unity and 
Freedom Party, the Revolu- 
tionary Communist Group, the 
Spartacist League, the 
Workers' Party, the Revolu- 
tionary Communbt League of 
Great Britain, the Revolu- 
tionary Communist Party of 
Britain, and the Communist 
Party of Britain (Marxist- 
Leninisi). 

No doubt half of those 
organisations have long ceased 
to exist, but no doubt as many 
more have sprung up to re- 
place them. Surely among all 
tbat mutual reading of 
anathemas there must be 
many a potential recruit for 
the National Front, and per- 
haps vice versa; there is no 
reason to suppose that the 
extremists of the right love 
each other any more than 
those of the left 

Stir well and season to taste; 
meanwhile, those whose poli- 
tics stop well before they get to 
the, wilder shores can breathe 
more easily. And, breathing, 
can murmur the traditional 
prayer of the third candidate at 
an American Presidential 
Convention while the leading 
two are squaring up: a good 
dean fight, and no survivors. 


LETTERS TO THE EDITOR 

Fresh approach to family breakdown Hard facts on 


From Mr John Jillings 
Sir, An adversarial approach to 
the resolution of family disputes 
involves a contradiction in terms. 
The way in which our courts are 
structured still reflects a 
judgemental approach to marital 
breakdown, which can only serve 
to heighten the almost inevitable 
conflict between partners faced by 
the collapse of their relationship. 

Is the objective to parade dis- 
cord, thereby helping to entrench 
it? Is it not possible to help 
towards disengagement? Your 
own conclusions (leading article. 
May 15) seem altogether too 
negative. 

Chief Judge Trapski recently 
and convincingly described the 
work of family courts in New 
Zealand. There the approach is 
based on the dear recognition that 
family breakdown is accompanied 
by severe and intense emotions. 
The objective is to ameliorate 
these feelings and to help the 
parties to reach positions in which 
they can live their future lives 
constructively. That process in- 
volves engaging the partners in a 
discourse aimed at working out 
their own solutions to their own 
problems, the welfare of the 
children being the first and para- 
mount consideration. . 

Trapski asserts that an analysis 
of outcomes for 1982-83 presents 
an encouraging picture: 19 per 
cent resumed their marriage de- 
spite having filed an application; 
39 per cent resolved the issues 
without resort to the formal stage 
of a fell court hearing; 16 per cent 
came before die court for formal 
resolution of part of the problem; 
26 percent reached no agreement, 
so that a judicial settlement was 
needed. 

Surely statistics of that kind 
suggest a long hard look at 
alternatives to our present frame- 
work. The interdepartmental re- 
view of family and domestic 
jurisdiction provides an ideal 
opportunity. 

Yours faithfully, 

JOHN JILLINGS,

From Mr J. B. Chapman 
Sir, Your leader on the family 
courts proposals (May 15) missed 
the point of the sentence quoted 
from the 1 974 Finer report, and its 
reasoning was thereby basically 
flawed. 

It was certainly stated by Finer, 
as you point out, that “the 
individual in the family court 
must in the last resort remain the 
subject of rights, not the object of 
assistance". But the operative 
words were clearly “in the last 
resort”. 

No one would deny the right of 
a separating couple who cannot 
agree about the future of their 
children to seek the adjudication 
of the court. However, what 
advocates of family courts with a 
conciliation facility have learnt 
from experience is that in the great 
majority of cases the couple can, 
given help, reach their own 
derisons in the best interests of 
their chitdren. They can thus 
arrive at an agreement by consent 
which the court will approve and 
welcome. 

Surely this procedure is pref- 
erable to the interminable legal 
wrangles which have often caused 
such emotional distress to both 
parents and children. 

Yours faithfully, 

J. B. CHAPMAN.

From Mr Allan R. Armbrister 
Sir, The statement in your leader 
of May 15 tbat magistrates may 
not transfer domestic cases to a 
higher court, no matter how 
difficult or unsuitable they may be 
for adjudication, is somewhat 
misleading. 

When the domestic court 
considers that any matter con- 
tained in an application for an 
order of maintenance, custody, 
adoption or custodianship, would 
be more conveniently dealt with 
by the High Court, it must refuse 
to make any such order. 

Yours faithfully.

South African raids 

From Mr Lloyd N. Coder 
Sir, David Watt's “Botha does a 
Reagan” (May 23) is somewhat off 
the mark. The American attacks 
on Tripoli and Benghazi may be 
open to legitimate criticism, both 
as to strategic wisdom and tactical 
choice of urban targets, but there 
can be no doubt of their legality 
under international law. 

The Government of Libya was 
directly responsible for a delib- 
erate and illegal attack on Ameri- 
can military personnel in Berlin. 
The evidence of this is so convinc- 
ing that the United States went so 
far as to compromise a valuable 
intelligence source in order to lay 
that evidence before the world. 
Any nation whose armed forces 
are attacked by another nation in 
violation of the UN Charter has 
the legal right to take a propor- 
tionate military reprisal. 


In contrast. South Africa 
presents no evidence that the 
governments of Zimbabwe, Zam- 
bia and Botswana have been 
directly responsible for deliberate 
attacks on the South African 
armed forces. At most, these states 
are responsible for allowing the 
ANC a sanctuary within their 
borders, an art which does not 
violate the Charter. 

The proper comparison is not 
with Reagan and Gadaffi but with 
Israel when it bombed the PLO 
headquarters in Tunisia. That 
attack, and South Africa's recent 
attacks on its neighbors, were 
indeed violations of international 
law. 

Yours faithfully,

Concern on salmon 

From the Director of the Salmon & 
Trout Association 
Sir, Whilst not wishing to be at 
odds with such an experienced 
observer of the salmon scene as 
your correspondent. Conrad Voss 
Bark (article, May 22), I think it is 
important that a distinction 
should be drawn between the 
catches of salmon and the stocks. 

Large catches do not necessarily 
mean a proportionately large 
escapement of fish to spawn. The 
converse might even be true, if the 
larger catches have resulted from 
more intensive, or more effective, 
fishing effort. 

As the Hunter Committee of 
1965 pointed oat, ideally the 
counting of fish entering rivers is 
necessary for the proper manage- 
ment of this valuable resource. 
This is why the Salmon and Trout 
Association, in company with 
others, is calling for an end to 
those methods of fishing which 
intercept fish in the seas or around 
the coasts, namely drift and 
coastal netting. 

These fisheries are cropping 
indiscriminately and will be tak- 
ing fish from a number of different 
rivers, some of them far removed 


from the nets to which they fall 
victim. 

Thus the effect of catches on the 
stocks of individual rivers cannot 
be accurately assessed and the 
result of over-fishing may only be 
apparent when it is too late, 
bearing in mind the complex 4-8 
year life-cycle of the salmon. 

But those who watch the rivers, 
the bailiffs, ghi flies, proprietors 
and tenant anglers, can also make 
a judgment on stocks, based on the 
evidence of their eyes. One in- 
dicator of stock levels is the count 
of dead kelts (Le., those salmon 
which have spawned, are attempt- 
ing to return to the sea and die on 
the way). 

On the Aberdeenshire Dee from 
1974 to 78 the kelt count was, on 
average, 5,000 a year. In the last 
five years it has dropped to an 
average of around 1 ,000. Last year 
it was 593. This dead kelt count is 
corroborated by the count of live 
kelts taken by rod and line. 

So much, then, for a brighter 
horizon. 

Yours sincerely, 

JAMES FERGUSON, Director, 
The Salmon & Trout Association, 
Fishmongers’ Hall

Waiting for sleep 

From Mrs Judy Martin 
Sir, Is it more common to lie with 
eyes open while waiting to fall 
asleep or to close them? I thought 
only babies kept them open 
(which explains why they never 
fail to realise you are leaving the 
room after putting them to bed, 
even though it's pitch dark and 
you are on tiptoe). 

However, on taking a survey of 
adult friends. 1 find that most of 
them do not automatically close 
their eyes on lying down. Surely 
sleep comes quicker if your eyes 
are closed? What do your other 
readers do? 

Yours faithfully,

people act according to their 
perceptions however “rational” or

perception that Europe, including 
die UK, is somewhat dangerous 
and therefore not a “fun place”.

Answering back 

From The Saved I dries Shah

courtesies relating to giving and 
receiving gifts are encapsulated in

In conduct, one thing is worse than 
failing to acknowledge a gift — and 
that is to remember that you have 
given one.

nurses pay 

From the General Secretary of the 
Royal College of Nursing 
Sir, Your leader on May 23, 
“Undeserving cases” suggests 
that the Government's attitude to 
nurses' pay is governed by senti- 
mental feelings and that what is 
needed is hard facts on recruit- 
ment and retention. It fails to 
recognise the demographic time 
bomb ticking away under nursing. 
The review body itself made the 
following comment: 

... the NHS is a near monopoly 
employer controlling both supply 
and demand. In that situation the 
absence of general difficulties in 
recruitment and retention is in- 
sufficient evidence of the adequacy 
of pay levels. 

The basic take home pay of a 
staff nurse, who has trained for 
three years, is still only £86.78 
after this recent rise. 

Earlier this year the Public 
Accounts Committee looked at 
nursing manpower and identified 
a serious threat of a nursing 
shortage within the next few years 
as the number of 18-year-olds 
coming out of our schools drops 
dramatically. This demographic 
time bomb will require many 
solutions, but one of them will 
undoubtedly have to be a better 
level of pay to persuade people to 
remain in nursing. 

Unless the Government em- 
barks on a systematic improve- 
ment of the level of nurses' pay 
there will be serious manpower 
shortages by the end of this 
decade. There has to be some 
recognition that nurses give a 
significant commitment to society 
and the majority in society would 
wish their Government to 
recognise that commitment in 
pay. 

What we have in nursing is not a 
free market, but a monopoly 
employer taking advantage of its 
position against a background of 
economic difficulties. But time is 
Tunning out Already even some of 
the London teaching hospitals are 
failing to attract sufficient stu- 
dents and very little is being done 
throughout the whole NHS to 
retain qualified staff.

Muzzled by Macaw 

From Mr Guy Roberts 
Sir. Michael McCarthy's excellent 
article (May 23) on Mr Jonathan 
Savery's experiences with the 
“anti-racist" black group Macaw 
(Multi-cultural Education Afro- 
Caribbean and Asian Workers’ 
Group) hi Bristol highlights the 
growing problems created by such 
organisations. 

While at Leeds University. I 
and many other Conservatives ran 
imo similar opposition from the 
prominent “anti-racist” establish- 
ment that runs the majority of our 
student unions. I was, for exam- 
ple, despite my sincere stated 
opposition to the apartheid regime 
in South Africa, loudly accused, 
both verbally and in print, of 
“racism” for my condemnation of 
the violent methods employed by 
the African National Congress, 
and was physically attacked at the 
National Union of Students con- 
ference, when I called for the 
ending of the controversial “no 
platform for racists and fascists” 
policy. 

Is it not time for the obnoxious 
idea of “positive" (ie anti-white) 
discrimination to be abandoned 
once and for all in favour of true 
freedom of speech? 

I remain yours etc,

Use of farm subsidies 

From Mr T. B. Mills 
Sir. Ronald Butt, in his article on 
Europe's common agricultural 
policy (May 22), questions 
whether any government could 
contemplate the demise of the 
smaller fanners and the trans- 
formation of the countryside into 
dormitory suburbs. 

Unfortunately, this is exactly 
what has been happening, and 
wbat will continue to happen as 
long as the agricultural subsidies 
are related to the amounts of food 
produced, rather than to the 
methods of production involved. 

Ronald Bun goes on to quote 
Sir Geoffrey Howe as saying “It is 
a fallacy to think that sun. soil and 
rain are not sufficient; that mod- 
ern agriculture needs taxpayers' 
money as welL” 

Undoubtedly. Sir Geoffrey has a 
point: excellent food can be pro- 
duced using sun, soil and water 
only (provided the organic resi- 
dues are re-cycled within the 
system). However, few farmers 
can contemplate this, as the labour 
costs are greater and the yields are 
less, and business is business, as 
Sir Geoffrey undoubtedly knows. 

Nevertheless, whilst the food 
mountains continue to grow and 
the unemployment figures con- 
tinue to rise, there seems an 
excellent case for using the subsidy 
system lo encourage a change in 
this direction. 

Yours faithfully, 

T. B. MILLS.

ON THIS DAY 


MAY 31 1848 

Although the London 
demonstration in April, 1843 
might be taken as the last outburst f> 
of Chartism on a national scale 
(On This Day April 11, 198S), 
social unrest was still strong 
enough in the north of England 
for the movement to make itself 
violently felt six weeks later. 


THE CHARTISTS AND 
REPEALERS. 

... The evil counsels of the worst 
of the Chartist leaders appear to 
have taken root amongst large 
classes of the operatives of the 
West Riding of Yorkshire, and the 
peace of several of the principal 
manufacturing towns, particularly 
Bradford and Bingley, has been 
more or less disturbed during the 
last few days. Owing to the 
depression of the worsted manu- 
facture, and the introduction of 
machinery that b as superseded the 
use of manual labour in the process 
of woolcombing, much distress and 
suffering have for a considerable 
time been experienced by the 
manufacturing operatives. Hence 
they have — more perhaps in a 
spirit of desperation than by any 
well-grounded in the principles of 
Chartism — followed the advice of 
the advocates of physical force, and 
imitated the pike and drilling 
preparations of the Young Ireland 
party in the sister country. The 
local authorities in the different 
towns of foe Riding, aided by 
advice from the Home Office, and 
foe assistance of foe military, are 
fully prepared to put down any 
attempt which may be made upon 
foe peace and property of foe well 
affected . ■ - 

The authorities have for some 
time been aware that foe Chartists 
at Halifax. Bradford. Bingley and 
other towns in foe Riding, were 
arming and enrolling themselves in 
dubs which they call “Life and 
Property Protection Societies" or 
“National Guards”, and that these 
dubs regularly assemble, both in 
and out of foe towns, for the 
purpose of being drilled in militar y 
evolutions, and especially in foe 
use of the pike, large quantities of 
which weapons, it is understood, 
have l 1 "*" made in different parts 
of the district Bradford has been 
the chief seat of these ill e gal 
proceedings, foe principal actors in 
which have over and over again 
avowed their determination to 
shirk no conflict with the civil or 
military authorities when, as they 
naiH foe tim» rump for action. 

On Sunday a very large gather- 
ing of the advocates of foe “six 
points" took place at Wilsden, and 
those assembled openly practised 
training and drilling. From 2,000 to 

3.000 men. armed chiefly with 
bludgeons, and the different ranks 
preceded in many cases by black 
banners surmounted with pike 
heads, marched in military array 
upon the ground, and went through 
various evolutions . . . The determi- 
nation was then expressed of 
resisting by arms any attempt by 
foe authorities to capture the 
leaders; and the chairman told h» 
followers that the infantry brought 
into Bradford would do good to foe 
Chartists, as the latter could now 
arm themselves cheaply by disarm- 
ing the military . . . There were 
several violent speeches delivered, 
and the assembly, who stood the 
pelting of a terrific storm of 
lightning, th under , hail and rain, 
marched back to their respective 
towns in the same military order in 
which they went to the meeting . . . 

The magistrates at Bradford bad 
not been idle in the meanwhile. 
About 2,000 special constables, 
including m en of all ranks, were 
sworn in. The police force were 
armed with cutlasses, and two 
companies of the 39th Regiment, 
two troops of the 5th Dragoon 
Guards, and about 30 of foe Royal 
Horse Artillery, were dispatched 
on Saturday from Leeds, and two 
companies of foe 81 st were ordered 
up from Hull . . . 

The first act of real outrage on 
the peace of the district had been 
perpetrated at Bingley on Friday, 
when two Chartist leaders were 
captured by the police on the 
charge of drifting some “National 
Guards" and taken before a magis- 
trate resident in the district, by 
whom they were committed to 
York Castle for trial. As soon as the 
capture of the two leaders became 
known the alarm was sounded to 
their foolish followers, and upon 
the police attempting to convey the 
prisoners to the railway station, 
they were surrounded by some 

2.000 persons, who beat them 
dreadfully and rescued the two 
fellows from custody, and they got 
claar off . . . 

On Monday at 4 o'clock the 
whole .of Bradford police force 
marched from the Court-house: 
they were followed by 1,000 special 
constables, foe mayor and magis- 
trates, 200 infantry with fixed 
bayonets and two troops of dra- 
goons . . . the supremacy of the law 
demonstrated, foe forces returned 
to the Court-house, where precau- 
tions were taken to quell any 
outbreak that might be attempted 
during the night. Orders were 
issued to all publicans and 
beerhouse keepers to dose their 
houses at eight o'clock and, in 
order to enpower the military to act 
instanter if required, the Riot Act 
was read.

On the verge 

From Mr C Hart 
Sir. Does anyone know why the 
humble dandelion chooses to 
grow in greatest profusion in that 
narrow strip of grass verge which 
is nearest to the road surface? 

Is the soil at this point saltier 
after the winter, and do the 
dandelions like it better that way? 
Or are they trying to keep as far as 
possible away from the farmers' 
herbicides? 

Yours faithfully,

There is nothing on any 
channel more calculated to 
grind home the facts of mortal- 
ity than Your Life m Their 
Roads (BBC2). Battalions of 
hitherto unsuspected symp- 
toms riot before the inner eye 
— perhaps because the outer 
eye is so horribly hooked on 
the full colour mayhem on 
screen. How can they do all 
this to someone who is still 
alive? 

Last night a 78-year-old 
patient suffering from (and 1 
quote) an abdominal aortic 
aneurism was shown having “a 
knife-long incision” made 
down his thorax, and — after a 
passage in which ft was kinder 
to oneself to think of 
maccaroni napotitana rather 
than of a batcher's window — a 
sort of hollow haggis in his 
middle was replaced with a 
length of dacron (though not 
the threatened “trouser 
graft"). 

Surgeons are popularly be- 
lieved to be as arrogant as 
barristers, so it was a neat 
piece of PR when die kindly 
woman responsible for this 
trenchant work polled back 
from the brink of dedaring 
“the operation went very 
well”; It went, instead, “quite 
nicely”. 

D. A. Pennebaker’s seminal 
documentary Don’t Look Back 
(BBC1) afforded a welcome 
opportunity to relive the spiky 
charms of 1965. On his first 
tour of England Bob Dylan 
was still treading the dicey 
tightrope between “folk” and 
the sensational rode and roll 
he would later produce with 
the Ur-Band, The Hawks. The 
music, however, took second 
place to the film's appealing 
height into the early courtship 
between Pop and Ideas — a 
onion which was later to 
spawn entire libraries of prof- 
itable cant 

“Now they're calling yon an 
anarchist", paired Dylan's ur- 
sine manager Albert 
Grossman as together they 
combed the English press for 
straws blowing in die publicity 
wind. Cash through chaos — 
well, it had to start 
somewhere.

Horowitz appears at the Festival Hall tomorrow after a triumphant 
tour of Russia and West Germany. While he was being feted in Berlin 
this week, he spoke to Richard Morrison in this exclusive interview 

Horowitz on a high 




Like a monarch on a royal barge, 
Vladimir Horowitz acknowledges 
the startled recognition of wind- 
surfers and yachtsmen with a 
cheerful wiggle of the world's most 
famous fingers. He is on board a 
River Havel pleasure cruiser, spe- 
cially comandeered by the West 
Berlin Senate to entertain the visitor 
who so richly entertained Berlin In 
two extraordinary recitals last week. 

City officials proudly give the 81- 
year-old pianist an impromptu 
commentary on his surroundings, 
even cataloguing the species of fish 
in the river. “No Dover sole?" 
inquires someone mischievously. In 
the last few days Berlin arts admin- 
istrators have become all too sensi- 
tive to the perfect conditions 
needed to coax Horowitz on to the 
concert platform. His insistence on 
consuming only fresh Dover sole 
before performing is one of his 
easier demands. 

On shore a gentleman from the 
popular end of the West German 
press, detailed to tail Horowitz as if 
he were a pop star (which be is), 
carries out his commission with the 
aid of a long-range camera lens. 
Horowitz is, one feels, not dis- 
pleased by his return to the gossip- 
column eminence he commanded 
in his flamboyant youth. “You 
know the other evening I went to 
the casino? They wrote that I won 
4,000 marks. All I did was play a 
little blackjack.” 

Such treatment is unique for a 
classical musician on tour, but then 
Horowitz is no ordinary musician, 
and this is no ordinary tour. A 
month ago he returned to Russia for 
the first time in 61 years, giving 
recitals in Moscow and Leningrad 


that produced unprecedented 
scenes from the normally reserved 
Soviet audiences. Then he recon- 
quered Hamburg and Berlin, his 
first concerts there since the war. 
Now his wife, his entourage and of 
course his pianos (be only plays his 
own) were about to move on to 
London, for a Festival Hail concert 
tomorrow. 

His choice of venue is highly 
significant The tour deliberately 
recreates the momentous journey 
made by the Kiev-born pianist in 
1923 when be decided to leave his 
native land and seek feme and 
fortune in the West “Yes, I am 
repeating my first footsteps: Russia, 
Hamburg, Berlin. London is my 
encore.” 

We bad talked earlier in a Berlin 
hotel suite. Horowitz, wearing bow- 
tie and matching handkerchief as 
always, was sunk in a deep arm- 
chair. By contrast his wife, the 
formidable Wanda, sat straight- 
backed opposite, alert for any sign 
of impertinence from interviewer or 
Indiscretion from interviewee. 
Their wedding in 1933 astonished 
friends, who predicted it would not 
last. Horowitz was thought of as a 
confirmed bachelor; it was unkindly 
suggested that he married 
Toscanini's daughter in order to 
learn how to perform Beethoven. 
Fifty years on, he still rarely plays 
Beethoven but the marriage has 
lasted, despite severe tests. The 
tragic death of their daughter Sonia 
was the most traumatic. But 
Horowitz's own acute nervous de- 
pressions and illnesses — though 
they may have not have harmed ms 
professional reputation (indeed, his 
tone retirements from the concert - 





The meeting with Scriabin's daughter 


platform, from 1936 to 1939 and 
again from 1933 to 1965, have 
perhaps added to his mystique) — 
also needed every bit of Wanda's 
fortitude. 

His reception in Russia dearly 
overwhelmed even a pianist used to 
adulation. “I have an American 
passport but a Russian sour”, he 
said. “On you imagine what it was 
like going back after 60 years? I met 
this very old lady. It was my niece. 
She was nine when I left”) and met 
others who represented links with 
his upbrin g in g , among them the 
daughter ofScnatnn. Shortly before 
his death the composer heard the 
10-year-old Horowitz play. “The 
Russians presented me with a 
Scriabin manuscript”, says Horo- 
witz. “Facsimile”, corrects Wanda. 

The pianist's only disappoint- 
ment was the cold shoulder he 
received from the Soviet authori- 
ties. Although his visit was one of 
the first fruits of the new US-USSR 
cultural exchange agreement (“Rear 
gan gave me his benediction before I 
travelled”, says Horowitz, drily), it 
unfortunately coincided with the 
bombing of Libya, and receptions 
for the pianist were officially boy- 
cotted. But there was nothing cold 
about the audience's response. 
“And you know the more an 
audience likes me, the more I like 
them!” 

Forty years ago, at the height of 
his American fame, Horowitz divid- 
ed critical opinion sharply. Those 
who thought the stupendous tech- 
nique of the “Tornado from the 
steppes” carried him to unchal- 
lenged heights were typified by the 
Manchester Guardian critic Neville 
Cardus, whose famous 1933 acco- 
lade of Horowitz as “the greatest 
pianist alive or dead” is still proudly 
recalled by its recipient. (Cardus 
later claimed that the description 
was an example of English irony in 
the face of American hyperbole, but 
it was too late.) Horowitz was a 
magnet for such superlatives. 

One the other hand, what some 
saw as his ultra- Romantic bending 
(or even obliteration) of the 
composer’s wishes in the cause of 
his own virtuosity has brought him 
some stinking reviews. The Chopin 
playing at his 1927 London debut, 
for instance, was described by The 
Times as “execrable”, “horribly 
noisy” and “very tiring on the ear”.

’ It is no surprise, then, that Horowitz 
now says he bolds music critics in 
contempt. As probably the highest- 
paid instrumentalist in the world he 
can certainly afford to do so. Exactly 
how much he earns on each of his 
rare appearances is, as Horowitz 
would say, “a big military secret”. 

Whether or not he despises the 
critics, Horowitz now plays for less 
of the spectacular virtuoso reper- 
toire — his glittering transcriptions 
of Carmen themes or The Star- 
Spangled Banner ; for instance. 
“Don’t forget it was 60 years ago 
when I was making my name. 
Tastes were not as advanced as now. 
In those days, you had to make an 
out-of-town recital into Barn urn’s 
Graft. I have given up. all that 
pyrotechnic stuff; not because of old 
age but because of my changing 
tastes and aesthetics. Mozart is my 
god now." 

However, the quirky penchant for 
Scarlatti sonatas is still a feature of 
his recitals. When he first champi- 
oned the then-unknown Scarlatti, 
Horowitz took the matter very 
seriously, even inviting the Scarlatti 
scholar Ralph Kirkpatrick round to 
his Manhattan apartment to discuss 
interpretation. 

I ask Horowitz about his recollec- 


tions of Britain. “Do they remem- 
ber me there? I must tell you 
frankly, I don't remember 
London.” But prompted by Wanda 
(“they have the pound coin now, 
that's very disagreeable. I think”) 
the memories came tumbling bade 
of Barbirolli (“I recommended him 
in America; I told them there was 
this -good accompanist”), of the 
Queen's HaH and particularly of 
Beecham, whom Horowitz does not 
exactly put on a par with Wanda's 
father. The problem was that they 
both made their New York Philhar- 
monic debuts at the same concert, 
and Tchaikovsky's First Piano Con- 
certo developed into a terrific tussle 
for supremacy over such basic 
matters as who finished first. Horo- 
witz recalls this memorable 1928 
occasion dearly. “Beecham, yes, be 
was eccentric. He tried to conduct 
without a score but it was not really 
in his range.” . 

By now Horowitz has thoroughly 
remembered Britain. “You know in 
the 1930s I used to play in 25 towns 
in Britain? Edinburgh, Manchester, 
Birmingham, Belfast-.”. “Newcas- 
tle, Liverpool”, chips in Wanda, 
with perceptibly less enthusiasm. 
“Everywhere.. .Bristol”, continues 
Horowitz. “Dundee”, says Wanda, 
with an air. of finality. 


No Otello from 
Sir Peter Hall 


Verdi’s Otello, with Pladdo 
Domingo in the title role, is 
likely to be seen at Covent 
Garden after all next season. It 
will not, though, now be 
directed by Sir Peter Hall, 
although it will use the' sets 
devised by Hall and his de- 
signer Sally Jacobs. 

The original new prodution 
of Otello scheduled for last 
January at the Royal Opera 
House had to be postponed 
when Domingo was forced to 
withdraw. Domingo's only 
available Otello dates for next 
season are in January, when 
Hall will be staging a new. 
Anthony and Cleopatra (with 
Judi Dench and Anthony 


Hopkins) at the Olivier The- 
atre. And Hall has decided to 
put the National first. Covent 
Garden now have the problem 
of finding another director of 
stature to take over the sets 
which have already been built 
That will be no easy task: 
directors are usually loath to 
use another’s design concepts. 

Hall and Domingo are like- 
ly to meet in Los Angeles next 
autumn, where an ambitious 
new opera project by the city 
involves a Salome (with Mar 
ria Ewing), staged by Hall, and 
an Otello with Domingo, but 
this time under the guidance 
of Gotz Friedrich.

You only need to hear the

on Radio 2 to understand why 
the prime part of the morning

from Ken Bruce and handed 
over to Derek Jameson. At 
9.29 the current is ax full-

the voltage has dropped, the

And yet this really isn't Mr 
Bruce's fault: since he took 
over from Wogan he has 
grown, but he simply does not 
command — or should it be is 
not commanded by? — the 
armour-plated, super-inflated 
personality that emanates 
over two hours and with 
undiminished vigour from Mr 
Jameson. 


In fact I wouldn't care to 
spend any time at all alone 
with Mr Jameson on a desert 
island. Within two days he 
would have enrolled me as his 
audience or readership and be 
found addressing me from the 
nearest eminence through a 
loud-hailer improvised from 
half a coconut, or writing 'me 
campaigning editorials in the 
sand. Naturally the foci that 
each one vanished with the 
next tide would only stimulate 
his communicative ardour. 

Between the hours of 7.30

not merely bend the ear but 
nail it too. He possesses all the

Courtesy and service in particular 


Sl J ames' Court occupies a superb position midway

Built at the turn of the century as a showcase of 
gracious Victorian living, it has now been magnificently 
restored and richly famished as a premier world-dass 
hotel and apartment complex, with 400 individually

It offers a tantalising blend of Victorian opulence and 
international sophistication for business or pleasure. 


For instance, you may follow an aperitif in the Oriental

Saint Cecilia, whose life

first impression of Gabriel 
Josipovici’s Ode to St CecBia

attempted to bring these two

oboist, refuses even to discuss 
Jerry’s offer of marriage, yet 
he and she are dose and

music? No: later Sue turns out

Commissioned by the Kenne-

Kopit simply went back to the 


which has no serious compre- 
hension of such a concept As 
a result the pastor is turned 
into a figure of fun whose 
strictures find recognition 
chiefly among thosfe who were 
raised in the early :decades of 
this century. Viewed as a 
dissection of hypocrisy, ur 
other words, it becomes little 
more than a treat for the old 
folks. ; 

Several infelicities obtrude. 
Manders's manipulation of 
Mrs Alving (Angela Thorne) 
over tiie question of insurance 
for the foundlings' home is 
taken at too brisk? a lick to be 
entirely convincing; Engst- 
rand’s Mackmaiung of the 
pastor over his alleged care- 
lessness with a catidle likewise 
stretches one's credulity; while 
Oswald's revelation to his 


standard ' William Archer “°£f ^

of Liv U liman, who was to 
assume the role of Mrs Alving 
in the opening production) 
wrote a version which, we are 
assured, is truer to Ibsen's 
original intentions and does 
away with the “stilted and 
bombastic and contrived” as- 
pects of the more familiar 
English text. 

The script employed in 
Justm Greene’s capable pro- 
duction flows freely enough, 
and the humorous passages, 
particularly those involving 
Peter Kelly's wheedling Jacob 
Engstrand and John 

WoodvineV stuffy Pastor 
Manders (a quirky portrait of 
beleaguered smugness), are 
given full rein — albeit in a 
fairly routine sitcom fashion. 

The more light is cast on the 
text, however, the more of a 
period piece it seems to be. It 
is not amply that Mr Kopit 
has found no modern equiva- 
lent for Engstrand’s favoured 
“JesuT (a locution which 
many might rather associate 
with Coleridge); or that, for 
instance, when he expostu- 
lates “Devil take me 1 .” he is 
urged to “stop swearing”; 
Perhaps it cannot be helped: 
certainly, there can be no 
adequate substitute for the 
word “immorality” in an age

hardly be expected to come up 
with many surprises - except, 
perhaps, the perennial sur- 
prise of finding it, by and

arc shgbtiy fewer works on

Among the pins factors this 
year is an abstract room 
(GaHery IV) which looks more 
than halfway decent probably 
because die big gnosof ab-

there, with some very fine 
Pasmores and some very typi-

works by soch as Ifoul Huxley 
and Anthony Whishaw. repre-

observed in British fan^scape-

look this year even more 
flimsy than usual, are scat-

course, Pasmorcand Hoyland

ex pret this kind of abstraction 
to become one more strand of

is just as it should be.

Enrich continues to ring the

the pre-war years Hollywood 
relied heavily on New York 
and West End stage stars to 
lend distinction and trained 
voices to its studios. 

When the Hollywood Raj 
collapsed after the war, the 
next generations of movie 
stars sull found a place in the 
sun rather more tempting than 
a cold winter in Boston on a 
pre-Broadway tryout of a new 
play which, if it failed, would 
do them no good and, if it 
succeeded, would only tie 
them up in New York for a 
couple of years and prevent 
them accepting more lucrative 
movie roles. A true theatrical

A movie or television star is 
undoubtedly worth several 
thousand pounds at a box- 
office in advance of a first 
night, and can operate as some 
sort of guarantee against ted 
reviews at least until the word 
of mouth spreads, but the 
equation is not quite as simple 
as it may look. A decade or so 
ago the Phoenix Theatre ran a

attract standing-room-only 
crowds of predominantly mid- 
dle-aged and middle-class au- 
diences to foe infinitely more 
“dangerous” American 
Buffalo. 

Other stars combining stage 
and screen careers more often 
have to play by the old Esther 
Williams rules. Miss Wil- 
liams, it will be recalled, was 
foe swimming star of whom 
one Hollywood mogul memo- 
rably remarked “wet she's a 
star, dry she ain’t” By that 
same token, if Rex Harrison 
goes to foe Haymarket in a 
Bernard Shaw revival, foe 
money is on the box-office 
table long before any first 
night; if he goes to foe Royal 
Court in a new play, the 
customers are more likely to 
await the reviews. 

I can mily very seldom 
remember seeing on stage 
someone who appeared to me 
to be a film star rather than an 
actor. Miss Taylor, certainly; 
and more recently Chariton 
Heston in a revival of The 
Caine Mutiny Court MartiaL 
But this is not actually a value 
judgement it was not as 
though Heston seemed all that 
bad in foe role, he just played 
it as if to an invisible camera 
in the centre of the dress circle. 

But the gaze factor has other 
curious distinctions: this 
country has produced pre- 
cious few wond-class movie 
stars since foe early 2960s, so 
that when tabloid headlines 
announce “star in West End 
debut”, they usually mean a 
Hollywood star. 

Of foe home team, consider 
foe contemporaries Albert 
Finney and Peter O’Toole: 
both started in regional reps at 
Birmingham and Bristol, both 
made their names in new- 
wave plays and films of the 
late 1950s, both have made 
films ( Tom Jones and Law- 
rence of Arabia ) which have 
been among foe peat money- 
spinners of all time.

"Were it not for the suburbs, you 
■ ••■• -muse, rt would be much the same 
, today. In fact 1 believe that is our 


Vida there, behind the fourth hill 
from the right . . . 

The Palazzo Pubblico, a gaunt 
and ruddy building, also contains 
its fair share of saints but takes a 
relaxed attitude towards them. 
There’s a maestt by Simone 
Martini, chock-full of haloes but 
in a remarkably poor stale of 
repair. It is overshadowed, I 
suppose, by the better known 
maestd of Duccio, housed round 
the corner in the cathedral muse- 
um. When that was produced in 
1311 the entire population of 
Siena; led by clergy and musicians, 
carried it in solemn procession 
from the painter’s workshop to the 
cathedral Three days of festivities 
followed. 

But Martini's masterpiece 
somehow seems more meaningful 
with its peeling paint and in the 
setting for which it was designed. 
On a cool October evening we sat 
on hard chairs in front ofitand lis- 
tened to a concert played on the 
palace's rarely used medieval 
organ, an instrument with a secret 
panel which the OTganist can raise

.:Wv#V: 


Out of the shadows: Siena's Piazza del Campo (above), Hs horse race (above left) and (top ) detail from Lorenzetti's “Good Government" 


reveal the pipes beneath. Pure 
magic. 

In Florence it is possible to tire 
of art quite quickly. Siena is 
smaller, more coherent, and its 
beauty is more easily assimilated. 
It has, of course, a breathtaking 
cathedral of zebra stripes, more 
Muslim than Christian. And ft has 
a famous tower, the Torre del 
Mangia, a jaunty edifice of brick 
crowned with stone, whose con- 
struction was thought so hare- 
brained that the brothers who 
built it had to bear all the risk 
themselves. 

Towers and bells assume an 
importance in Tuscany that seems 
almost out of proportion. In the. 
first great flood of Florence, in 
1333, every bell in town was rung 
to God to stop the waters rising 
and the tumult drowned the 


thunder. In Ugolino in 1288 a 
Guelph and four boys were 
starved to death in a tower, the 
keys chucked into the Arno. Then 
there is San Gimignano, the 
medieval Manhattan, where the 
top nobs had the tallest towers. 
And in Pisa we all know what 
happened. 

But Siena's tower, and the 
Palazzo Pubblico, stand in a 
setting unlike any other — the 
Piazza del Campo, a word that 
cannot be translated as “square’* 
because it isn't. On the edge of it. 
after the concert, we studied its 
geometry over a coffee and 
watched the Italian boys doing the 
cafe round, greeting a friend at 
every table. 

Shaped like a scallop, it is 
divided by cobbled rows into nine 
triangles, one for each of the “good 


men" who governed the city 600 
years ago and who remain, cap- 
tured in paint by Lorenzetu, in the 
ball of peace. Siena is built on 
three hills so that to walk within 
its walls is a constant undulation. 
But the city is pulled together by 
this campo. since all roads lead 
towards it and 1 ! streets lead into 
it through narrow archways. What 
other town can boast such a focal 
point? 

In the summer Italy’s best 
known horse-race, the bareback 
palio. takes place round it — two 
minutes of equine anarchy. Sean 
O'Faolain says that if, when 
watching it, your bean does not 
swell until ft fills every cranny of 
your body, strangling all your guts 
in an orgasm of delight, then you 
cannot know the meaning of 
“man", “horse" or “sun". Per- 


haps. Certainly the postcards were 
fiiU of it this autumn as we 
wandered through one of the 
archways and tome to the streets 
(free, thanks to good government, 
of cars). 

Dwarfed by ancient palaces, 
mansions and churches, the alleys 
of Siena seem so thick with history 
that you would feel like an 
impostor were it not for the 
laughing Sienese, who imbue them 
with that peculiarly Italian sense 
of immediacy. 

Florence, the Guelph city, has 
its charms but none of this 
intimacy. In 1230, my guidebook 
tells me, the Florentines catapult- 
ed dead monkeys and excrement 
over the walls of Siena to start a 
plague. Germ warfare! Me, I'm 
with the Ghibellines. Fancy anoth- 
er coffee? 


Outside the campo the only 
serious place to drink coffee in 
Siena is Nannini's (branches 
throughout the town). There you 
can take your choice from a 
startling variety of confectionery: 
panforte, the rich almond cake; 
ricciareili. the sweet almond bis- 
cuits; marzipan, chocolate, can- 
died chestnuts, and all served by 
girls obviously chosen by the 
management for their resem- 
blance to the young Sophia Loren. 

Perhaps you will buy, in a green 
bottle, the herb-based elixir of 
Santa Caterina, the local saint (or 
one of them; for a more modern 
version, try Fiorucci; in La Lizza, 
the market, you can pick up his 
jackets half-price). 

Not everyone enjoys a stay in 
Siena. Smollett, pugnacious old 
traveller, was “indifferently 
lodged in a house That stunk like a 
privy, and fared wretchedly for 
supper". He cannot have known 
about Grauacielo, hidden away in 
the Via Pontani where, in a tiny 
room, you can have pannini with 
anchovies and pesto, squid in 
vinaigrette, or chopped smoked 
herring with purple onions and 
half a litre of wine for 9,000 lire, 
which is very cheap. 

Smollett would have been hap- 
pier in our fanning village up in 
the hills, a group of converted 
cottages clustered round the 
fattoria, a stately farmstead dedi- 
cated to Chianti, olive oil and 
tourism. It had its disadvantages: 
three miles across a rutted track to 
the nearest shop was one. Bui we 
drank a lot of the best black 
cockerel wine, we ate a lot of 
olives, we were surrounded by 
vineyards and woods in which we 
picked a lot of chestnuts. And at 
night, try as we might, we could 
not hear a car. Good government 
at its best.

IN THE GARDEN 


Spring into action without delay 


Over the last few weeks plants 
have accelerated into growth 
and we are catching up with 
the seasons very quickly. Most 
of the trees are in leaf and h is 
only now we are really begin- 
ning to assess the damage left 
by the hard winter. 

Many tender shrubs have 
lost branches and some appear 
to have been killed. However, 
do not dig them out too fast 
because many of them are in 
feet breaking from ground 
level and below. Where you 
can see buds bursting cut away 
the dead top growth. 


Once you are down to buds 
make sure the plant is kept 
moist Wait nntil growth is 
wed established and then give 
them a feed of a general 
fertilizer. 

There is still time to sow 
hardy annuals in situ. Dig the 
site by forking to about 9in 
deep, and once dug it must be 
consolidated: never sow seeds 
into ground which is light and 
fluffy. It is best to broadcast 
the seed direct into the 
ground. 


AT THE CHELSEA 
PHYSIC GARDEN 


You can sow any of the 
hardy annuals such as corn- 
flowers, sweet peas. Salvia 
hormium. Un aria, Viscaria. 
Limnanthes douglasii (better 
known as the fried egg plant) 
and the many fine varieties of 
Calendulas.

In the vegetable garden it is 
time to sow many of the 
vegetables which are classed 
as half hardy or even lender. 
Plants such as runner beans 
and French beans should be 
going into sites prepared dur- 
ing the autumn and winter. 


outside now, including let- 
tuce, radish, spring onions and 
carrots, but steer dear of 
marrows, cucumbers and 
tomatoes. 

Staking of herbaceous 
plants assumes a high priority 
now. Growth is strong and 
unless they are kept upright 
they will be flattened by the 
wind and rain. 

Plants such as Erigeron, 
Achillea, Solidago, Hetenium, 
Eryngium, Artemesia and 
GaLega have many shoots 
which should be directed into 
the supports which have been 
inserted. 

Spring is also a good time to 
take cuttings of many house 
plants. Select tip growths 
which are typical of the plant 
and are not too soft Hormone 
rooting powders such as 
Serradix or Roota help greatly 
with the rooting. To reduce 
water loss, cover the young 
plants with a polythene bag or 
put them in a propagating 
case. Pilea, Abuiilon, 
Monstera, Kalanchoe and hy- 
drangeas will root easily now.

Elegance amid the elephantine: dining at the revamped Dolphin Square Brasserie 

Crest of the new wave 

In a quest for fine 
food Craig Brown 
discovers that 


Shona Crawford Poole finds simple solutions to the subtly sweet myste ri es of exotic Afghan dish es 

Noshe with a difference 

^ ■ Diana LMdbanar 


Two rather smart new restau- 
rants have opened m London 
recently, both of them out of 
the catchment area ofbusiness 
men on expense accounts. 
This will make it more diffi- 
cult for them to succeed, but it 
makes the prospect of their 
success all the more appealing. 

- The Dolphin Brasserie in 
Dolphin Square has been 
through all sorts of changes in 
Its time. It is curious to have 
an elegant restaurant in so 
elephantine a block as Dol- 
phin Square; more curious 
that the restaurant should 
overlook an indoor swimming 
pool; and curiouser still the 
rumour that first drew me to 
have breakfast there five years 
ago - actress Jill Bennett. I 
was confidently informed. 

, could be seen swimming there 
. every morning. 

Nestling croissants and 
cappuccino, 1 peered through 
the separating window on to 
... the pool, scanning the horizon 

but saw no one who looked 
1 even a little like JiU Bennett 
' Nor have I seen her -on 

- subsequent occasions. 

The novice whizz-kids be- 
hind the revamped brasserie 
?. have felled to resurrect this 
attractive rumour in their 

E ublirity push, though they 
ave taken the nautical sug- 
gestion of the place and, under 
■ the direction of Glynn Boyd 
• Harie and the meticulous 
. i craftsmanship of Guy Lob- 
bock, have converted the large 
room into an- ocean liner 
: fantasy. Handrails, dolphins, 
palm trees and starry skies 
- abound. The piano is cohered 
with painted shells and star- 
" . fish; a half moon harigsNfter 
the gents. ” 

Lying ofT-the beaten track, 
. •: the brasserie cannot afford to 
serve so-so food, and it has 
wisely derided to aim high- 1 


a brasserie swam 
in Dolphin Square 

had an excellent melange of 
noodles, crayfish tails, pine 
kernels and port, a combina- 
tion which sounded ludicrous 
but which, on taste, possesses 
a quietly playful logic. My 
companion's smoked salmon 
salad made up in looks what it 
lacked in character, and was 
nicely complemented by the 
sprightly Californian house 
white (£6.75). 

I was boring and went for 
the grilled lamb cutlets, too 
steep at £10.75, but perfectly 
pink within and lightly crisp 
without; my companion 
closed her eyes amid the bliss 
of a chicken breast poached in 
a saffron sauce; moist, tender, 
and — all too rare in restau- 
rants — from a real and once- 
clucking chicken. The 
vegetables were fresh, crisp, 
small and plentiful. 

The pudding menu tends 
towards the sickly, but then 
pudding people enjoy cocking 
a snook at dieticians with 
something like profiteroles

with hazelnut praline ice- 
cream. Frustrated at the pros- 
pect of such richness, my 
companion demanded a lem- 
on sorbet conspicuously ab- 
sent from any menu. 

It came without a blink, 
resting in a wafer staft, sur- 
rounded by a blackcurrant 
coulis. My companion — a 
lemon sorbet person — pro- 
nounced it the tastiest she had 
ever eaten. Lunch works out at 
around £20 a head, but you 
could eat in the brasserie 
throughout the day. 

The Launceston Place Res- 
taurant is less obviously bright 
and breezy, but its. distin- 
guished arid pleasanl-looking 
clientele seems quite content 
to swap glamour for a bit of 
peace and quiet. It is light and 
spacious, with pretty pictures 
on the walls. 

The set lunchtime menu 
(£7.50 for two courses, £9.50 
for three) is changed every 
day. and if some aspects are 
not yet quite up to scratch (the 
chef seemed to have lost his 
nerve with the Mack butter 
. accompanying my skate), oth- 
er aspects most definitely were 
(a rhubarb and apple crumble 
with marvellously thick dot- 
ted cream, the crumble a 
perfect cross-section of dusty, 
crusty, stodgy and treacly). 

The wine list at Launceston 
Place has a happy selection of 
half bottles and dessert wines 
(Barzac £1.75 a glass). The 
underrated Sancerre ■ Rose 
(£10.75) is excellent for-lunch. 
Two black marks, though, for 
the weakness of the coffee and 
the weariness of the table 
flowers. But the service was 
efficient and good-humoured 
throughout, even when my 
companion tripped over, pull- 
ing- -down the coa island. 
Again, £20 a head, but much 
less for the abstemious. 


It is no surprise that the food 
of Afghanistan, noshe djan, 
has a lot in common with the 
dishes served in neighbouring 
Pakistan, Iran, Tibet, and, of 
course the southernmost 
readies of the Soviet Union. It 
has breads cooked in tandoor 
ovens, dry rice pilaus with 
fruit and nuts, and green teas 
spiced with cardamom and 
enriched with cream. 

In Afghan cooking vegeta- 
bles are as important as meat, 
and spices are as often used 
singly as in a mixture of equal 
parts of cinnamon, doves, 
cumin and black cardamom 
seeds called char marsaia — 
words not so very different 
from the Indian garam 
masala spice mixtures. 

Helen Saberi, an English 
civil servant who married an 
Afghan structural engineer in 
1972 and Uved there until the 
Soviet occupation in 1980, has 
written Afghan Food and 
Cookery*. All royalties will go 
directly to charitable organiza- 
tions working in Afghanistan. 

Do not be put off by the 
knowledge that cookery books 
written for good causes are 
usually uninspiring medleys 
of inconsistently written reci- 
pes. Helen Saberi's dishes are 
authentic, interesting and very 
cookable, as the following 
recipes, taken from the book, 
amply demonstrate. 

The traditional Afghan 
kitchen is simple and basic. 
Most cooking is done over 
wood or charcoal fires, which 
results in a wide selection of 
substantial one-pot meals. 
Many of the dishes are oily fay 
c urre nt European standards. 
Often the oil can be skimmed 
off after cooking, or in some 
msfts, reduced at the outset 
Norinj pilau is traditionally 
prepared with the peel ofbitter 
Seville oranges. This version 
of the dish is the one made m 
Helen Saberi’s family and, she 
says, is less sweet than many 
others. Use a. sweet orange 
when SeviOes are out of 
season. Norinj pilau reheats 
wdL 



Norinj pilau 
Serves four to six 


450q (Hb) basmati rice 
120ml (4 fl oz) vegetable o?T 


2 medium onions, chopped 


chopped onions. Stir and fry 
them over a medium to high 
heat until golden brown and 
soft Add the meat and fry it 
until brown, turning it fre- 
quently. Add 6Q0ml (1 pint) of 
water, salt and pepper and 
cook gently until the meat is 
tender. 

While the meat is cooking, 
wash and cut the orange peel 
into matchstick-sized pieces, 
removing as much pith as 
possible. To remove any bitter 
taste, put the orange strips 
into a strainer and dip first in 
boiling water, then in cold. 
Repeat this several times. Set 
aside. 

' Make a syrup by bringing to 

the boft 120ml (4 fl oz) of the 
. water and the sugar. Add the 
orange peel, the flaked al- 
monds and pistachios to the 
boiling syrop. Boil for about 
five, minutes, skimming off 
the thick froth when neces- 
sary. Strain and set aside the 


700-900q (1 %-21b) lamb 


Add the saffron and rose- 
water to the syrup and boil 
again gently for another three 
minutes. Add the ground car- 
damom. . . 

To cook the rice, strain the 
meat stock, setting the meat to 
one side, and add the syrup. 
Make the syrup and stock up 
to 600ml (l pint) by addmg 
extra water if necessary. The 
oil will be on the surface of the 
stock and this should also be 
included m the cooking of the 
rice. . , , _ 

Bring the liquid to the boil 
in a large casserole. Drain the 
rice and add it to the boiling 
liquid. Add salt, the nuts and 
the peeL reserving about a 
third for garnishing. Bring 
back to the boil, then cover 
with a tightly fitting lid, turn 
the heat down to medium and 
boil for about 10 minutes until 
the rice is tender and the 
liquid is absorbed. 

Add the meat, the remain- 
ing peel and nuts on top of the 


rice and cover. Put into a pre- 
heated cool oven 
( 1 50°C/300°F. gas mark 2) for 
20 to 30 minutes. Or cook 
over a very low heat 
When serving, place the 
meat in the centre of a large 
dish, mound the rice over the 
top and then garnish with the 
orange peel and nuts.

Browsing through, the latest 
crop of wine lists is an 
entertaining exercise. We 
learn from Simon Loflus ot 
Adnams that be considers bis 
book Anatomy of the Wine 
Trade to be one of the few that 
was written to be read in the 
bath. Lome House Vintners. 
Die Muscadet specialists, are 
busy crossing swords with 
wine writers over supermarket 
recommendations. Robin 
Yapp extols the delights of a 
fish soup he discovered in Le 
Toucquet and "Rod" Waite of 
Sheraton Wine. C o mp a ny . 
proudly declares that he is a 
member of the Grand Order 
of. . . But he or his printers, 
forget to mention what. 

It all makes for an enjoyable 
read and a definite Improve- 
ment on the old turgid lists of 
a decade or so ago that rarely 
gave anything more than 
wines and their prices. Of 
them all Lay & Wheeler s list 
is still one of the largest and 

most comprehensive, with 

more than 1,200 different 
wines to chcbse from. 

The company is becoming 
increasingly interested in the 
private customer, its prices are 
competitive and the service 
excellent. Perhaps the sim- 
plest way of sampling Lay & 
Wheeler’s wares is to order 
Richard Wheeler's selection - 
12 different wines that he 
considers to be of outstanding 
value, and ready for drinking. 

The case, priced at £68.86. 
includes the delicious flowery 
and foil-flavoured Fleur de 
Champagne from Duval Le- 
roy. plus the splendid *82 
Reserve de la Comtesse. 
Pichon-Lanande's second 
wine and Churchill's vintage 
Character port. Write for this 
and Lay. & Wheeler’s list to 6 


Culver Street West, Colches- 
ter, Essex. 

Robin Yapp’s list is always 
one I look forward to. as there 
are always several nuggets of 
information (and wines, too) 
tucked within the text This 
year he rates the ’83 Brezeme 
as his most interesting new- 
comer. This red wine comes 
from a tiny, little-known vine- 
yard at Livron. hallway be- 
tween Valence ■ and 
Montelimar. and is made 
from pure Syrah. 

Yapp ’ Brothers' "summer 
-wine offers include the appro- 
priately named Something 
Fishy. This seaside case con- 
tains eight -bottles of Chfcreau 
85 Muscadet-sur-lie, plus four 
jars each of Serge Perard s 
fabled RouiUe and Soupe de 
Poissons. (£40 from Yapp 
Brothers. The Okl Brewery, 
Mere, Wiltshire). 

Adnams of Southwold s 
new list is. as always, one of 
the most handsome offerings, 
with beautiful photographs 
and an equally stylish text. 
Adnams may not offer the 
(fastest and most efficient ser- 
vice in thecountry. (apologies 
all round again this year for 
delivery problems) but the list 
of wonderful and unusual 
wines at keen prices cannot be 
feulted: (.Adnams. The Crown, 
High Street, Southwold 
Suffolk.) 

The new Champagne House 
list (1 5 Dawson Place, London 
W2) is well-written, though 
occasionally slightly indul- 
gent. The informative, useful 
and correctly critical profiles 
on champagne houses are 
essential reading for any 
champagne lover. The low 
prices and superb service are 
another bonus. .

_ '^jMgh Dalton by Ben Plmtott 
^ r^MaemlHaft, 212.95) 

’ 

• ? When this large book — 624 pages of 
. -narrative — was first pablished last 
--- year U was greeted with a chorus of 
'upraise behind which f detected an 
element of surprise that a biography 
• "Vof Hugh Dalton could justify ' such 

* -.^iftetaited and expansive treatment 
' * v x.^ Today Dalton's name does not have 

resonance of Attlee, Bevin, 
u , r ^rCripps or even Herbert Morrison. 

One of the achievements of Ben 
7 Pimlott’s masterly biography is to 
convince one that it should. 

For ail Dalton's faults which, like 
the rest of him. were large and loud, 
S.. , • he played a commanding role in the 
‘ . .^Aafcwur Party, the Labour Govera- 

''ment, and the development of post- 
•rj-war Britain. In addition, Pimlott’s 
«- u v wacute and unflinching, analysis of 
^ ^Dalton's background and private 

* T* H^xlife throws light on his public career. 

... .Dalton was a vulnerable pachyderm 
v- and beneath the thick skin there was 
• an almost tragic void.. 

Born in 1 $87, the son of a canon 
- of Windsor who had been tutor to 
Prince Eddy and the future King 
: - ^George V, educated at Eton and 
King’s College, Cambridge, Dahon 
-reacted strongly against his courtly 
background. 

c At Cambridge he met, and was in 
r-'.^due course dropped by, Rupert 
Brooke. He also became a socialist 
’ : "^?£AJnIoved by his parents and on bad 


. tenns with his sister, he found it 
impossible throughout his life to 
establish a dose relationship with 
.any contemporary. His marriage 
rasa desert and the early death of 
his and Ruth's only daughter a 
(billing tale of neglect 

It was in public life that he 
expressed himself In the years up to 
the Second World War, his most 
important contribution: as a Labour 
MP was made on the party's 
National Executive, where he 
played a crucial role in developing 
Labour policy and in steering it 
away from pacifism to a cautions 
support of rearmament 

Ciuring the war at the Ministry of 
Economic Warfare and the Board of 
Trade Ire proved himself a formida- 
ble minister, loathed by senior civil 
servants but regarded with affection 
by their juniors. At the same time he 
was largely responsible for die 
policy on which the Labour Party 
went to the country in 1945. 

There followed the apogee of his 
career, the years at the Exchequer. 
Pimlott convincingly argues that his 
achievements as Chancellor have 
been misinterpreted and misunder- 
stood. Dalton's reputation has been 
unmade by two groups of people: 
Conservatives, to whom he was a 
class traitor and who hated him 
more than any other Labour politi- 
cian; and economists who were 
liberal Keynesians. 

Dalton was never a Keynesian, 
partly for personal reasons but 












CTU 's 
















Hot brides: Vicky’s portrayal of Hngh Dalton at war, when he proved a formidable minister 


above all because he was a socialist, 
perhaps the only truly socialist 
Chancellor we have ever had. 
Keynes believed that his theories 
would save capitalism. Such was 
hardly Dalton's aim. He liked 
controls, he believed in rationing 
and, more than anything else, he 
believed in equality. Faced with a 
choice between increasing produo 
lion and reducing inequality he 
would, 1 am sure, have chosen the 
latter. 

Dalton's life, public and private, 
is full of puzzles. For example, after 


his leak before his last Budget, why 
did Attlee so readily accept his 
resignation and, given Dalton's 
position, how was he able to? One 
answer, suggested by Pimlott, is that 
neither Attlee nor any of his 
colleagues wanted Dalton to stay. 
“All at the top agreed”, John 
Freeman said, “that Dalton wasn't 
one of them." All his life he was an 
outsider who excited among con- 
temporaries instant distrust. But to 
the stable of young politicians 
whom he trained and supported, he 
was approachable and stimulating.

everything — innocent young 
men are scheming, potential 
rapists; highwaymen are noble 
knights come to rescue her; 
and she expects her admirers 
to die at her command. 

The pernicious effect of 
injudicious novel-reading was 
a constant theme of the time, 
and in Maria Edgwonh’s 
Befinda it causes the downfall 
of the virtuous young epony- 
mous heroine, who gees to 
stay with the older, worldly 
Tady TJeJacoufin order to be 
introduced to London society. 

Lady Delacour is a complex 
character: witty and generous, 


she has wasted her youth in 
the pursuit of trivial Measures, 
but believes it is too late to 
repent, as she is dying of a fetal 
disease. The friendship of the 
two very different female 
characters is portrayed in a 
lively style that makes it 
initially possible to ignore the 
author's more unsubtle 
moralizing. 

Then disaster strikes, as 
Lady Delacour is allowed to 
survive her “fetal disease” 
and reform. The reader’s relief 
that such a fascinating charac- 
ter has escaped death turns to 
dismay; the repentant Lady 
Delacour is intolerably duff 

Mary Brunton’s Self Con- 
trol is also rather disappoint- 
ing, although his considerably 
more readable than the title 
would suggest. Laura is far 
from being the unforgiving 
prude who vows never to see 


her suitor after be has kissed 
her “assertively on the Ups” — 
she is just an innocent girl who 
assumes Colonel Haigreave's 
attentions are leading towards 
an offer of marriage, and is 
understandably dismayed and 
hurt when she learns what he 
does have in mind . . . 

Self Control starts out by 
describing Laura's struggle for 
independence in the face of 
genteel poverty, and in a very 
avant-garde development she 
attempts to support herself as 
a painter. Instead of persever- 
ing at this, however, she 
becomes companion to a bad- 
tempered relation and the 
novel turns into a standard 
story — will she escape the 
persecutions of her rejected 
lover and many the right 
chap?

Eliot under the 
scholar’s glass 


!— TS. EDob A Study in 
it Character and Style by Ronald 
‘ Bush (Oxford, £64)5} 


According to Pimlott, there is no 
evidence that he was homosexual in 
the physical sense. It is dear 
nonetheless that the friendship of 
good-looking, intelligent young men 
from Rupert Brooke in his youth to 
Tony Crosland in his later years 
provided the most comforting and 
comfortable human relationships 
he experienced in a life of consider- 
able achievement and noisy, flam- 
boyant activity, which was alarming 
in ibe void that underlay it alL 

Mark Bonham Carter 


There have been so many bad 
books about T.S. Eliot that it 
is a great relief to find a good 
one. It is by a Californian 
professor and is well-written 
in the judicious style of Amer- 
ican scholars that faintly re- 
calls Henry James. 

Professor Bush has done an 
enormous amount of home- 
work and set the poems into 
context in Eliot's prose writ- 
ings and in the books that 
influenced him, particularly 
tbe French ones. Tbe picture 
he paints of Eliot’s progress 
through life is completely 
convincing, from Prufiock to 
the Quartets. It is full of 
valuable insights into particu- 
lar poems and, as a whole, it 
makes Eliot more understand- 
able as a man, and Jonelieras a 
writer, and yet more rooted in 
the recent past. It is not the 
whole truth — it allows per- 
haps too little for humour — 
but from a literary point of 
view it is perfect. 

Its best virtue lies in not 


Wasteland than the first state- 
ment of a new resurrection 
theme, however faltering. It is 
at least an interesting exercise 
that this book should relate 
the new theme rather to style 
than to religion. 

This underlying, hard- 
nosed attitude to poetry was 
the necessary step in Eliot 
criticism, and it has removed 
what used to seem intractable 
problems in his work. Still, 
Eliot was a deep and multiple 
writer, and there is room for 
critics of different kinds. We 
have uot come to the end of 
Eliot's religion. 

His own supremacy as a 
critic is no longer unchal- 
lenged; he is on the way to 
becoming as dated as Matthew 
Arnold. His supremacy for 
religion and seriousness no 
longer commands the assent 
or respect it once did. What 
survives best are his mighty 
powers as a poet, but even 
there his rather secret deci- 
sions about style, and about 
what poetry is or can be, need 
nowadays to be illuminated. 

For those who believe, as I 
do, that he was tbe greatest 


One ends up liking 
and respecting 
him more than ever 

that Eliot was a great poet, 
greatest in fragments as Pro- 
pertius was, and perhaps 
Donne, but also mighty in his 
architecture, well-read and 
studious. 

It must also be true as usual 
that the style was tbe man, and 
the chan ges in the style must 
indicate changes in the man. It 
is this relation of character 
and style that Professor Bush 
has so convincingly traced. 
One ends up liking and re- 
specting Eliot more than ever. 

One can test such a book by 
its footnotes. They are admi- 
rably scholarly and wide-rang- 
ing and constantly open new 
perspectives. It must have 
taken considerable discipline 
to relegate them to the back of 
tbe book for fear that they 
might impede the fruitless 
lucidity of the main argument 
They contain the material for 
numerous monographs and 
intuitive essays. 

1 found it extreme fy useful, 
for example, to have a brief 
history of attitudes to The 
Hollow Men* which (I agree 
with Bush and Helen Gard- 
ner) is less a coda to The 



Liberating: TSl Eliot " 

poet m English of this century, 
ft is extremely important to 
have this full and sober analy- 
sis of bow be came to write as 
he did. Those others who are 
tempted to erode bis reputa- 
tion, or dismiss the modern 
movement as an eccentricity, 
could learn salutary lessons 
from Professor Bush. Eliot 
was in some ways a one-man 
modern movement, but in 
deeper ways a one-man main- 
stream of English poetry. He is 
a liberating writer, and The 
Four Quartets really are the 
crown of a lifetime’s devotion. 

Professor Bush has an accu- 
rate eye for images, and an 
accurate ear for tone in poetry. 
In his reading. The Four-. 
Quartets are the most terrify-, 
ing presents any poet has 
offered us for a long time.

THE WEEK AHEAD 


By Peter Waymark 


Mellowing of a 
£ master Mason 


'--FILMS ON TV 

James Mason, who died in 
1984, made mare than 100 
films and must have regretted 
. many of them. And yet now 
that his career can be judged as 
. a whole, and time has lent 
. detachment, he emerges as 
■ one of the finest screen actors 
. Britain has ever produced. 

Hi s career had three phases. 
'Entering films in 1935, he first 
came to general attention 
. during the Second World War, 
as the man-you-love-to-hate 
. • sjirof the melodramas The Man 
Grey. The Seventh Veil and 
- *£The Wicked Lady, exuding an 
<< evil charm that captivated 
audiences happy to Jose them- 
selves in wartime es ca p i sm . _ 

. * The climax to what in 
t . • - ■“* retrospect can be called his 
.• “British” period . was Carol 
Reed's Odd Man Out. a film of 
„,*■ " extraordinary power and im- 


agery, a text-bode for the 
young Francois Truffaut, 
which followed Mason’s last 
stand as a terrorist on tbe run 
in Belfast. 

At which point, with tbe 
British cinema at his feet. 
Mason loudly bit tbe hand 
that fed him, denounced J. 
Arthur Rank and all his 
works, and to tbe consterna- 
tion of his vast following 
decamped for Hollywood. But 
instead of turning him into a 
new Cary .Grant, America 
nearly buried him. 

The second age of Mason, 
which lasted from the mi d- 
1940s to the early 1960s, 
seemed, at the time, a period 
of lost opportunity when at 
best he marked time but more 
often took unworthy parts in 
bad films. The current verdict 
on these years is kinder. 

They included, for instance, 
his famous impersonation of 
Held Marshal Rommel in The 
Desert Fox, the bizarrefy sur- 
real Pandora and the Flying

Lucky finds amid films and football 


For those with a minimal 
interest in football, juggling 
the television schedules next 
week will be a complicated 
exercise in how to avoid the 
World Cup. Take out the 
soccer and the admittedly 
be txer-than -average crop of 
old movies and there is not a 
lot left. . . 

Connoisseurs of the mini- 
series will no doubt turn to 
Kane and Abel (BBCl. Tues, 
8-9pm and 9.30-1 0.50pm; epi- 
sode two on Thurs at 9.30pm) 
which brings lo the screen the 
deputy chairman of the Con- 
servative Party's best-seller 
about power, passion, re- 
venge, passion and so on. 

Produced by one Michael 
Grade before be became con- 
troller of the channel now

come to be: apparently end- 
less, with excruciating dia- 
logue and, if you are in the 
mood (a few drinks before- 
hand are advisable) uninten- 
tionally funny. 

Playing Jeffrey Archer's dy- 
namic duo, the poor Polish 
boy who becomes a tycoon in 
the United Slates and the rich 
American boy who also be- 
comes a tycoon in the United 
States, and whose story of 
power, passion, revenge etc fill 
out nearly four hours of screen 
time, are Peter Strauss and 
Sam NeilL 

Passions are also stirred in 
Letters To An Unknown Lover 
(Channel 4, Thurs, 9.30- 


1 ! .25pm). Based on a novel by 
Bofleau and Narcejac, the 
source for Hitchcock's Verti- 
go. it is a tale of two sisters in 
occupied France and their 
relationship with an escaped 
prisoner. Cherie Lunghi stars 
and the director is Peter 
Duffel 1, whose most distin- 
guished work for television is 
Caught on a Train with Peggy 
Ashcroft.

programmes reflecting this 
year’s festival theme of tbe

Over the next few weeks 
BBC I is honouring tbe memo- 
ry of Mason with some of his 
best and most characteristic 
films. The season opens to- 
morrow with Tbe Wicked 
Lady (3.20-Spm), which 
caused ripples in the United 
States because of Margaret 
Lockwood 's plunging 
neckline. 

The remaining films repre- 
sent a good cross-section of his 
work and range from Odd 
Man Out to The Desert Fox, 
and from the spy thriller Five 
Fingers to A Star is Bom. 

the Captive Heart (1946): 
Michael Redgrave in decent 
PoW drama from Ealing 
(Channel 4. tomorrow, 
l0.15pm-12.10am). 

Pat and Mike (1952): ideal 
comedy vehicle for Spencer 
Tracy and Katharine 
Hepburn (Channel 4, Tues, 

9-1 0.45pm). 

To Catch a Thief (1955): 

Ca/y Grant leads relaxed 
Hitchcock thriller set on the 
Riviera (ITV, Wed, 8-1 0pm). 


Tommy Triad er is 77 ami so Is 
Alistair Cooke and both of 
them are old enough to remem- 
ber G. K. Chesterton, who 
died 50 years ago. All three are 
prominent in the coming 
week's radio. 

One of the literary lions of 
his age. Chesterton is mainly 
remembered now for what be 
regarded as one of his less 
serums enterprises, the Father 
Brown stories. But he had 
many other to immor- 

tality, among them his bizarre 
novel about a group of London 
anarchists. The Man Who 
Was Thursday. 

Starting tomorrow (7-Bpm) 
as Radio 4's new Classic 
Serial, it is a deceptive piece, 
starting, tike a play by Shaw, 
with a lot of witty talk and 
little substance, bet develop- 
ing into something more sinis- 
ter. Chesterton's sub-title, 
after alL, was “a nightmare” 
and the anarchists are trying 
to destroy the world. 

Chesterton wrote nearly 100 
books, covering an extraordi- 
nary variety of subjects and, 
though often embroiled in 
controversy, is reputed never 
to have made an enemy. As an 
appetite-wfaetter for The Man 
Who Was Thursday, there is a 
revised repeat of Michael 
(finch’s feature (Radio 4, to- 
day, 4-L45pm) in which Ches- 
terton Is played by the fete 
Hugh Burden, 

Tommy Triad er made his 
first radio broadcast before the 
BBC even existed, so he has a. 


RADIO 



A claim to immortality: 

. GJC Chesterton, by Low 

lot to talk about in The 
Trinder Box (Radio 2, Wed, 
J O-l 030pm), a four-part se- 
nes of reminiscences delivered 
to a live audience. Despite his 
recent illnesses the old boy s 
in cracking form. 

Nostalgia is also the key- 
note of Alistair Cooke's Amer- 
ican Collection (Radio 4, Wed, 
1 2.27-1 2.55pm). another of his 
amiable ambles through the 
popular music of the 20th 
century. The six programmes 
include one on the jazz Uses, 
. dedicated to Philip Larkin. 


Huw Wheldon's prodigious 
talent as a small screen per- 
former there is a repeat of his 
Iasi major programme, Desti- 
nation D-Day (BBCl, tomor- 
row. 5-6.30pm). Easily the 
best of the reconstructions put 
out two years ago to mark tbe 
40ih anniversary, it perfectly 
illustrates Wheldon’s enthusi- 
asm and ability as a 
communicator. 

Another master of his craft 
no longer with us is commem- 
orated in Don Whillans's Last 
Climb (BBC2, tomorrow, 
9.45- 10. 1 5pm). Wbillans, who 
died last year, and Joe Brown 
.were Britain’s finest climbing 
team and for this programme 
they returned to a punishing 
crag in north Wales which 
they first ascended 30 years 
before. 


But Cooke starts with the 
American musical of tbe 1920s 
and it is not just an old man's 
prejndice to make 
unfaro arable comparisons 
with what is happening on 
Broadway now. It says some- 
thing for the decline of the art 
when the most hummable 
songs come from the revival of 
a show more than half a 
century old, 42nd Street. 

Had she lived, Marilyn 
Monroe would be celebrating 
her 60th birthday tomorrow 
and to mark the anniversary 
Radio 4 has a play abont her 
life called Anyone Can See 1 
Love You (Radio 4, 230- 
330pm). You wo old think 
almost everything had been 
said and written about Monroe 
by now but the Canadian 
writer, Marilyn Bowering, 
does manage to bring her up 
fresh. 

The piece proceeds largely 
through first-person mono- 
logue, a device particularly ' 
suited to radio, with a discreet I 
but effective jazz score in the 
background. Hetty Baynes, i 
who plays Marilyn, captures 
not only her voice but the naive 
vulnerability that left her so 
exposed and ensured that the 
60th birthday would never be | 
reached. 

Wood Magic (Radio 4.830- 
10pm) features the Medici 
String Quarter and actors 
Richard Pasco and Barbara , 
Leigh-Hent in an anthology of 
tile words and sliwc of Sit , 
Edward Elgar.

merating the paint- 
ings one by one. 
Godlike, Patrick Caulfield is 
giving a guided tour of Pissar- 
ros, C&axmes, Chardins, and 
De Hooghs, reproduced in 
little blade and white photo- 
graphs. They are the paintings 
which he has chosen for tins 
year’s “Artist’s Eye” exjiibi- 
tion at the National Gallery, 
which has been running in 
cardboard mock-up for some 
months in his studio. 

Caulfield is the latest con- 
temporary artist to be invited 
to make his choice from the 
gallery's collection. Predeces- 
sors, who include Hockney 
and Hamilton, took the game 
seriously but Caulfield seems 
to have been somewhat quix- 
otic in his choice. 

For a start, he has refrained 
from any religious subjects. 
He is plucking Manet's “The 
Waitress” back from an exhi- 
bition at the Courtauld Gal- 
lery, and is having two 
pictures refrained. Cfeanne’s 
portrait of his father will haw 
beside a 17th-century Dutch 
lady because “having the same 
proportions and similar tiled 
floors, they could both be. an 
extension of the same scene”. 

When he is not exercising 
his powers over National Gal- 
lery pictures, Caulfield, aged 
50. works in his roof-top Soho 
studio producing the paintings 
for which he is famous, in 
bright, neon pop colours sepa- 
rated by the thick black lines 
that are his trademark, they 
teasingly glamorize the 
blandest aspects of modem 
life comers of wine bare; fried 
eggs on a plate. Sometimes he 
borrows a photorealistic ex- 
cerpt from a photograph or 
earlier painting. 

Caulfield has always been 
somewhat of a loner, both 
socially and artistically. As a 
student at the Royal College of 
Art, one year behind Hockney, 
Kitaj and Allen Jones, instead 
of cashing in on their fame he 
said he regarded himself as 
“lucky to have come in quietly 
on the second wave and to 
have kept a low profile”. 

In the mid-1950s, when his 
student colleagues were pas- 
sionately painting social real- 
ist works in muddy colours, he 
opted for a naive style influ- 
enced by Douanier Rousseau. 
Later, when Abstract Expres- 
sionism was all the rage, he 
switched firmly to representa- 
tional images with no auto- 


Patrick Caulfield 
has chosen an 
enigmatic show 
from the National 
Gallery collection 

graphic marks whatsoever. He 
was rewarded in 1964 by the 
Prix des James Artistes at the 
Paris Biennale. 

Today, contracted to Leslie 
Waddington, the contempo- 
rary an magnate, Caulfield 
has exhibitions in Cork Street 
as often as he produces the 
work (be is very slow). 

Caulfield is the human 
counterpart of his paintings: 
sunny yet enigmatic. All 
around his studio are tantaliz- 
ing dues to the man: a cafe 
chair around which curls what 
looks like a fossilized 
(“by an ex-student of mine, 
when I was external assessor 
at Chelsea School of Art”); 
two Cubist guitars roughly 
scissored but of cardboard, 
and a tank battle scene 
scrawled on a blackboard (by 
Arthur, the youngest of his 
three sons). 

Most intriguing of ah is a 
wall turned into a kitsch cafe 
counter. Here, apart from 
bongo drums on the shelf 
(“sometimes 1 bang on them”) 
and a curvaceous palette 
(“given to me by Howard 
Hodgkin as a 50th birthday 
present”) stand multicoloured 
glasses ever waiting for cus- 
tomers, and Budweiser cans 
glued together (“because I was 
drinking, and thought they 
looked rather pretty”). 

B ut, al t hough talking 
emphatically, Caul- 
field maintains a dis- 
tance. His clothes axe 
anonymous, a bland ensemble 
of shin, jersey and trousers 
mitigated only by the ridge of 
stitching on his slip-ons. His 
easel is empty, because “I 
never show my . work in 
progress. To talk about rt 
would disturb my relationship 
with what I’m doing." He 
even tells the time from afar, 
opening his studio door and 
focusing his binoculars on a 
local church clock.* 

So how did he set about 
making his choice? ”1 was 
rather sceptical when I started. 
I thought, this is truly a finite 
proposition.” But once he had 
been supplied with a catalogue 


of tiie entire collection be 
became inspired, able to work 
in the selective way similar to 
his normal working methods. 

“It was like having a mail 
order catalogue” he says. “I 
went through it with little red 
stickers. Then I went and 
looked at the pictures, and just 
kept going back." Hie gallery 
is a five-minute walk away. 

The first thing Caulfield 
knew when selecting from the 
National Gallery was what be 
did not like. “I can’t stand 
flower paintings because they 
remind me of birthday cards. I 
hate pictures that are very 
•busy — boat scenes; people 
having their heads cut off. 

“What I wanted were paint- 
ings with a timeless quality — 
Fve ended up with many 
Dutch works — landscapes, 
portraits, and genre scenes. I 
also liked colours that demand 
distance from each other.” 

And . so Saenredam’s 
“Church Interior”, was cho- 
sen, and, De Hoogh's 
“Courtyard” after the. frame, 
has been changed (“because, 
although it is historically cor- 
rect, the colours bleed into the 
frame”). He has also included 
Fabri lias’s “A View of Delft”, 
because of his being a man of 
the Sixties, he thinks. “It’s got 
a modem- feeling to it — this 
kind ofhippie character sitting 
with his guitar.” - 

Some favourites have not 
been included because they 
are too big: Veroet’s battle 
scenes for example (which 
remind him of the days he 
used to play war games). Even 
his awn two paintings have to 
hang outside the exhibition 
proper because of their size 
and comparative brightness. 

It remains to be seen wheth- 
er Caulfield's rehang -of die 
National Gallery wifi work. 
He has no advice (in' the 
unsuspecting public who 
might be perplexed, by his 
idiosyncratic choice, “their 
eyes should dictate how they 
look”, he says. “The room will 
be while, so when yon emerge 
from those long rooms , with 
heroes and Christ figures 
jumping' around the walls 
against plum-coloured wallpa- 
per, it should look a bit 
differenL It may look a bit 
boring. I hope ft will look

Having promised a unique

sent a brusque telegram a 
fortnight ago saying that be- 
cause of the increasing fear of

not be sending their china. 
The implication was that the

a single American has pulled 
out. Bui it was a shattering 
blow when I received the

organizers says: “Roger have 
ended up looking very silly

The bridge to reconciliation 


Catholic means universal, and 
the implication is that any 
Church which accepts, as the 
Church of England does. Holy 
Scripture, the Creeds, tradi- 
tion and the threefold Apos- 
tolic ministry, is 
fundamentally Catholic in 
outlook and thinking. 

At the Reformation and in 
succeeding centuries the 
Church or England rejected 
both the extremes of Roman 
authority and the dogmatic 
attitudes inherent in Protes- 
tant thinking, building on the 
past and developing a distinc- 
tive spirituality ana tradition. 

That tradition has em- 
braced episcopal authority 
and discipline while maintain- 
ing a certain openness of 
theological debate; which says 
as much for the strength of the 
Church as it does for her 
apparent weakness in, at 
times, being less than dogmat- 
ic. In her approach to faith 
and older the Church remains 
Catholic; in her approach to 
authority reformed in that 
specifically English way which 
encourages debate and 
discussion. 

The underlying assumption 
of the article on this page in 
The Times on May 17 by 
Jonathan Harfield, “The An- 
glican culture shock,” appears 
to be that the Chun± of 
England is a weak and vacil- 
lating body, essentially Protes- 
tant in character and therefore 
lacking in the ability to enter 
into any real rapprochement 
with Rome. 

Such an approach demon- 
strates a misunderstanding 
both of Anglican faith and 
tradition and of that essential 
pragmatism which lies at the . 


root of pre-Reformation and 
of Reformed English Catholi- 
cism. It also implies a pre- 
sumption on the part of Rome 
of pre-eminence rather than of 
precedence, which is hardly in 
keeping with the spirit of unity 
and the recondlatkm of Chris- 
tian traditions. 

Rome is no longer the 
centre of the world and it 
could be said in all charity that 
in manera of faith a similar 
shift of emphasis outwards is 
called for. After aQ, Hans 
Kung may not be particularly 
welcome m the rarefied atmo- 
sphere of the Vatican but he 
none-tbe-less has much to say 
of concern and interest to 
Roman Catholics and indeed 
to Anglicans alike. 

Canterbury has never 
claimed such an ultimate au- 
thority as the centre of the 
Anglian Communion but the 
Archbishop is nevertheless 
seen as an authoritative figure 
among Anglicans, and Canter- 
bury Cathedral as the mother 
church of that diverse com- 
munion. In that delicate but 
effective balance of “primus 
inter pares” the Church of 
Rome may find an example 
worth reflecting upon as she 
struggles with some other own 
complex internal problems. 

Anglicans are weQ used to 
culture shock. From the time 
of the Tudors there have been 
the persecutors and the perse- 
cuted with Anglicans and 
Roman Catholics playing al- 
ternate roles. The Civil War, 
the Restoration of Charles n, 
the Non-Jurors, the Evangeli- 
cal Revival and the Oxford 
Movement have all played 
significant parts in the devel- 


opment and changing shape of 
the Church of England. 

In more recent times The 
dramatic shift of emphasis to 
the Eucharist and the new 
liturgy. Bishop John 
Robinson’s Honest to God and 
more lately the Bishop of 
Durham's pronouncements, 
have all kept the quality of 
discussion and debate at a 
high level involving both the 
ordained ministry and the 
laity. 

On the one hand it can be 
argued that these are signs of 
disunity, on the other it can be 
said that the Holy Spirit 
continues to refine and devel- 
op the witness of the Church 
to the Gospel of Christ in a 
changing and challenging 
environment 

The Church of England is 
uniquely able, through its 
tendency to absorb extremes 
and to cultivate debate with- 
out fundamental disunity or 
inquisatorial censure, to act as 
a bridge church between Prot- 
estants and Roman Catholics. 

Such an ability should not 
be underestimated in Rome or 
by the Protestant churches nor 
should, the Anglican Commu- 
nion be dismayed by those 
occasional rifts which appear 
to threaten its seemingly frag- 
ile but tenacious unity. In a 
multi-cultural and multi-reli- 
gious world such honest diver- 
sity is capable of authoritative 
strength. 

The Anglican Communion 
today, guided by the Holy 
Spirit, is no more fragile than 
that motley and diverse collec- 
tion of men who gathered in 
the upper room at the first 
Pentecost A certain pragma- 
tism held together the early 


church and that same pragma- 
tism can be, indeed is, equally 
effective in holding the 
Church together today. 

The Anglican-Roman Cath- 
olic International 

Commission’s discussions, 
consolidated in its final re- 
port represent not the lowest 
common theological denomi- 
nator but an attempt to rede- 
fine areas of solid theological 
agreement in a language ac- 
ceptable both to Rome and 
Canterbury. 

U would seem to me, how- 
ever. that neither Anglicans 
nor Roman Cthotics should 
make any assumptions regard- 
ing organic unity on the basis 
of the report. Indeed. I would 
venture to suggest that the 
whole emphasis of the move- 
ment for Christian unity 
should shift from Lhe basic 
concept that unity necessarily 
entails some form of 
uniformity. 

It has to be accepted that the 
Church is as diverse in its 
structures, traditions and 
viewpoints as is humanity 
itself What is needed is not 
uniformity but mutual accep- 
tance and understanding; a 
unity expressed by indepen- 
dent denominations accepting 
lhe interdependence involved 
in being part of the Body of 
Christ 

In such an area of discus- 
sion the Church of England 
and the Anglican Communion 
as a whole can make a solid 
and worthwhile contribution 
for the benefit of the whole 
Church.

Saleroom 


Milan joins the big league 

By Geraldine Norman, Sale Room Correspondent 


Nationalism broke out in the. 
auction rooms oa Thursday with 
Ffaaxte scoring the highest sale 
price ever recorded In Indy, 
Christie's the highest pud in 
HoBand and Sotheby’s tipping 
then with a record-breaking 
mt» of American pnm tfn * in 
New York. 

In MDan Finarte secured 
1265 millioB tire (indmfisg pre- 
mium), or £527,000, far a huge 
painting called “Ffttraana” by 
Giuseppe FeDizza da Volpedo, 
despite an export baa and the 
state’s right to pre-empt its 
purchase as a national heritage 
item at any time daring the next 
60 days. 

Pellizza was one of a group of 
Italian artists who adopted the 
Divisions! style pioneered by 
Seurat in Paris, applying it to 
subjects displaying social His. 
“ Romans ” shows a crowd of 
hungry workers pooling from a 
factory tike a river mat has 


broken its banks, as the title 
implies. 

The painting was offered for 
sale subject to the stringent rnles 
applying to works of art that 
have been notified as of national 
interest. The requirement to 
allow public access, report any 
movement of the painting to the 
authorities and offer the state 
first option on resale, in addition 
to the export ban and possible 
pre-emption, normally discour- 
ages buyers from purchasing 
notified items. 

In tills case many competitors 
came forward, including the 
Milanese dty counriL and it was 
knocked down to an investment 
fond from Lombardy. 

In Amsterdam, Christie's of- 
fered for sale a collection of Old 
Masters formed by a Dutch 
industrialist, the lab Frits del 
Monte, and achieved 1,972,000 
guilders (estimate 500,000 to 
800,000 b), or £505,641, for a 
flower siDi-Efe by Jan Davidsz 


de Heem, the noted sevemetrth- 
ceittnry flower painter. It was 
bought by David Koetser, a 
Zurich dealer. The collection 
totalled £901325 and only one 
picture was left unsold, for 
which a buyer was found after 
the sale. 

The star torn of Sotheby’s 
American sale was a portrait by 
John Singer Sargent of the 
elegant wife of a British stock- 
broker and had been sent for 
sale from Britain by her great 
nephew. Mrs Cedi Wade was 
shewn in her withe satin 
presentation gown in an elegant 
Victorian interior in 1886 and 
the painting sold for $1,485,000 
(estimate $300,000 to $500300), 
or £951,923. 

The price sets an auction price 
record for the artist, multiplying 
the previous high by three. The 
sale set price records for 23 
artists and made a total of £6.2 
million with 23 per cent unsold.

Cancer treatment cuts side-effects 

By Thomson Prentice, Science Correspondent 


Patients suffering from cancer 
are beh^ offered a new system 
of drug treatment which means 
they can lead a normal life 
with fewer unpleasant side- 
effects. 

Traditions) methods of 
treatment with anti-cancer 
drugs Hsnally involve the pa- 
ttern being given large doses at 
long intervals. The dlsad van- 


severe side-effects and the fact 
that the dreg dose present at 
(he site of the cancer is not 
constant. 

Preliminary stndies at Exe- 
ter University and the Royal 
Devon and Exeter Hospital 
have suggested that those 
problems may be overcome by 
frequent or oven continuous. 


delivery of low levels of the 
drug by infusion. 

Recent technical advances 
in access to the Mood system, 
and portable infusion pomps, 
have provided the capability of 
giving continuous cancer che- 
motherapy to some categories 
of patients in their homes. The 
HOPE project (Home Oncolo- 
gy Programme, Exeter) Is 
developing that strategy. 

This form of treatment is 
used in a large number of 
centres In the United States, 
but Exeter specialists are the 
first to hunch 9 substantial 
research study into it in 
Britain. 

The researchers are now 
investigating the most effec- 
tive drag combinations, the 
best ways of preparing and 


storing the drugs for delivery 
by infusion, and the way in 
which the drugs may be 
changed biochemically in the 
patient's body daring 
treatment. 

About 70 patients have al- 
ready received treatment in 
their own homes. “Some have 
been able to lead good useful 
quality lives with minimal 
side-effects*', according to Dr 
Chris Rowland, of the radio- 
therapy and oncology centre at 
the hospital. 

. Dr Rhwland is working with 
the hospital's department of 
pharmacy and the department 
of biological sciences at the 
university. “In a number of 
cases, a good response to 
tumours has been seen”, he 
reports. 


OBITUARY 

DR RICHARD 
ONIANS 

Gassical 

scholar 

Dr Richard Onians. Profes- 
sor of Latin at London Uni- 
versity from 1936 to 1966, 
died on May 21. He was 87. 

Richard Braxton Onians 
was bom in Liverpool on 
January II, 1899. After an 
undergraduate career at Liver- 
pool University, where he 
graduated with first class hon- 
ours in classics, he went as a 
research student to Trinity 
College, Cambridge, in 1922. 

Here he worked on the 
explanation of various con- 
cepts to be found in Homer, 
and his expanded thesis was to 
win the Hare Prize in 1926. 

The regulations for the prize 
required publication by 1929; 
but Onians obtained permis- 
sion for postponement and his 
work did not appear until 
1951 under the title The 
Origins of European Thought. 

Although the book, which 
covers a vast field, does not 
always cany conviction, it was 
one of the most important of 
its day in the field of classical 
studies and remains a valu- 
able tool. 

Unfortunately, Onians pub- 
lished little else, although he 
worked at additions to the 
book. 

He was lecturer in Latin at 
Liverpool University from 
1925-33, and Professor of 
Classics at the University of 
Wales from 1933-35 before 
going to London University 
the following year. 

Combined with a warm 
heart, Onians had a strong 
sense of right and wrong and 
judged actions firmly by those 
standards. 

In 1937 he married a stu- 
dent of his, Rosalind 
Lath bury, with whom he re- 
turned to Cambridge and who 
survives him, along with two 
sons and four daughters. 

FATHER ANDRAS 
ZAKAR 

Father Andras Zakar, secre- 
tary to Cardinal Mindszenthy, 
who was imprisoned and tor- 
tured by the communists in 
Hungary in 1949, has died. 

7ak.tr came to public atten- 
tion quite young: in 1942 he 
was appointed secretary to 
Cardinal Seredi. whose anti- 
Nazi policy he loyally support- 
ed. Zakar went on to serve 
Cardinal Mindszenthy with 
the same courage and loyalty 
and he was with Mindszenthy 
when the Hungarian Nazis 
arrested and imprisoned him. 

By 1947 it was clear that the 
communists would not only 
take over the government but 
also turn Hungary into a 
Soviet satellite. Determined 
efforts were made to get rid of 
Mindszenthy. He and his 
associates were subsequently 
tortured and put on trial 

Zakar was sentenced to 15 
years’ hard labour but served 
only a third of the term. He 
was too weak to leave with 
Mindszenthy when the Vati- 
can ordered the cardinal to 
Rome. The torture he endured 
left him a frail man for the rest 
of his life. 

MR PETER OWEN 

Mr Peter Granville Owen, 
CMG. whose distinguished 
service as a colonial police 
commissioner look him to 
some of the world’s trouble 
spots in the 1960s, died on 
May 25, aged 67. 

He was the last Commis- 
sioner of Police for Aden 
where, during the troubles in 
1967, he led an expedition 
into the riot-tom Crater dis- 
trict to rescue more than £4 
million of government 
money. 

Owen was Commissioner of 
Police in Gibraltar in 1960 
when he was awarded the 
Queen's Police MedaJ. 

He later commanded the 
1. 800-strong police force in 
British Guyana during the 
riots there in 1 962. For this he 
was awarded! the CMG. 

After his retirement from 
the service, Owen did valuable 
work for the Save the Children 
Fund, latterly as the 
organisation's deputy director 
of fund raising. 

He leaves a widow, Mercia, 
a son and a daughter. 

DR JAMES 
PHEMISTER 

R. A. H. writes : 

In your otherwise excellent 
obituary of Dr James 
Phemister. published on May 
26, all mention of his work in 
mineralogy was omitted. 

His meticulous investiga- 
tions of minerals, often with 
complex features, were recog- 
nized by service on the Coun- 
cil of the Mineralogical 
Society on three separate 
three-year periods. He was 
elected President for 1951-54. 

After his retirement from 
the Geological Survey he be- 
came editor of Mineralogical 
Abstracts, a position be held 
for seven years. 

He was a Fellow of the 
Mineralogical Society of 
.America. 

Lurene Tuttle, a versatile 
radio, film and television 
actress, has died in the United 
Slates, aged 79. She appeared 
in Orson Welles's film version 
of Macbeth and Alfred 
Hitchcock's thriller. Psycho.

MP seeks fire 
alarm review 
as car blows up 

By Sheila Gann, Political Staff 

An urgent review of security “Now 1 cannot believe I was 

at the House of Commons was stupid enough to stand 20 ft 
called for yesterday after the from a blazing car but I did 
engine of as MFs car blew up not know what else to do." 
in the members’ underground The car park was half empty

and Shoreditch, vainly tried to Vauxhall Cavalier was parked

after running from his blazing equipped with a sprinkler 
car. The fire was eventually system. But a fireofficer said 
put out with water, leaving it operated only in tempera- 
him shaken and fhrious at the tunes over 180 deg F. A video 
lack of security and 'safety camera scans the area. There 
precautions in the car park. are no smote sensors. 

He told The Times: “I was A spokesman forthe securi- 
just about to drive off when ty office said: “This is hardly a

flames shot up from the a fire officer who examined

“1 leapt out of tbe car and alarm had not gone off be-

“I could not understand 
why nobody came. I broke the 
on the fire alarm but 
nothing happened. After 10 
minutes someone came into 
the car park and I sent him off 
for help. 


Security in the car park and 
surrounding area was tight- 
ened up after Mr Airey Neave 
was killed by a car bomb 
planted by the Irish National 
Liberation Army in March 
1979.

Corps apparently had not 
informed the Navy about this 
particular mission." 

Mrs Cockton said tbe Army 
was sending a general to see 
her. But she said: “I am not 
interested in their lies. Now ft 
is not a question of finding out 
how Simon died, but why." 

A ministry source said that 
initial examination of frag- 
ments of missile found near 
the helicopter had suggested 
that it could not have been a 
Sea Dart. 

But a detailed examination 
in Britain of fragments could 
not rule oat the possibility that 
the micaile was a Sea Dart 
which f i raim stanrial evidence 
suggested was HMS Ca r di ff ! 

The Ministry of Defence 
yesterday attributed the shoot- 


ing down to a “breakdown in 

f mrnaanifuriwK " 

The helicopter appears to 
have been defected on HMS 
Cardiff's radar as “a slow 
moving” object and, because 
the ship was not expecting a 
British helicopter in the area, 
ft seems to have been identi- 
fied as a hostile Argentine 
target. 

The three men who died in 
addition to Lance Corporal 
Cockton, were Major Michael 
Forge, of Rochester, Kent, who 
was unmarried. Staff Sergeant 
John Baker, married with two 
children, of Rochester, Kent, 
both members of the Royal 
Signals, and Staff Sergeant 
Christopher Griffin, married 
with me child, of Yarmouth, 
Isle of Wight, who was the 
pilot.

In the garden 


After a much delayed start 
plants, weeds included, are 
growing fast. It will be more 
prudent than ever to thin and 
weed rows or patches of veg- 
etable or flower seeds when the 
seedlings and weeds are very 
s mal l Seedlines fighting with 
weeds may suffer a check from 
which they never fully recover. 
Deal with them as soon as they 
are large enough to handle. 

Bedding plants that have been 
raised in peal blocks. Jiffy Ts or 
peal pots, or bought in, must be 
well soaked with water before 
planting and watered in after- 
wards. It is difficult to wet the 
compost in a peat pot if it was 
div when planted. 

The sun is quite powerful 
now, and even with shading on 
glass and full ventilation, tem- 
peratures in a greenhouse can be 
80° — 90°. Damp down the 
staging and floor with water two 
or three times on really hot days. 

House plants are growing well 
and appreciate a soluble feed 
every 10 to 14 days. Always see 
the compost is moist before 
applying fert i l iz er. Keep leaves 
of foliage plants dean and move 
indoor plants back into the

DOLLAR AND THE DEFICIT 


President Reagan, in a ver- 
bal sparring match with Dem- 
ocrats who accused him of 
ruining US export trade, said 
the Bill would result in higher 
ronsuraer prices and put mil- 
lions of Americans out of jobs. 

‘‘This Bill is worse than 
protectionism. It is des- 
tructivism”, Mr Reagan said 
in a speech aimed at Sfrnan* 
Republicans who have threat- 
ened to pass a revised version 
of the politically popular 

Register of 
salesmen 
likely to 
be rejected 

By Lawrence Lever 

The Government is expect- 
ed to announce that it will not 
amend the Financial Services 
Bill to accommodate propos- 
als requiring life assurance 
and unit trust salesmen to be 
entered on a central register 
open only to those passing a 
test of competence. 

The announcement is ex- 
pected on June 12 , the dale 
provisionally pencilled in for 
the report stage of the BdL 

The proposals were put 
forward in March by the 
Marketing of Investments 
Board Organizing Committee 
which is to merge with the SIB 
before the Financial Services 
Bill becomes law. 

But they do not appear to 
have found favour with Mr 
Michael Howard, the Minister 
for Consumer and Corporate 
Affairs. 

He is believed to have 
told Mr Mark Weinberg, 
deputy chairman ofthe SIB, of 
his decision this week 
and is expected to send formal 
written confirmation next 
week. 

Mr Howard is understood 
to have considered that it 
would be administratively im- 
possible to maintain an accu- 
rate central register because 
there are about 150,000 sales- 
men, many of whom frequent- 
ly change jobs within the 
industry, who would be re- 
quired to register. 

His decision is likely to be 
warmly greeted by the clearing 
banks and the building societ- 
ies both of which have strong- 
ly opposed the concept of 
individual registration. 

It will throw the regulators 
back on to the provisions of j 
the Financial Services Bill, 
which deariy make authorized 
investment businesses respon- 
sible for ensuring the compe- 
tence and suitability of their 
salesmen. 

The BDI also provides for 
the creation of a blacklist of j 
salesmen who have been | 
barred from selling life assur- i 
ance and unit trusts, which < 
will be maintained by the SIB. ' 

It can only be inspected by j 
those with good reason for j 
consulting it, although Mr j 
Howard has said that this j 
provision is the Bill will be i 
liberally interpreted. <

House of Representatives Bill 
this summer. 

During Mr Reagan's speech 
to the National Association of 
Manufacturers, the audience 
remained silent, reflecting the 
growing division among busi- 
ness leaders over free trade 
versus managed trade policies. 

Momentum behind the Bill 
has been generated by the 
record US trade deficit which 


rose to $ 148.5 billion last year 
and by new forecasts that it 
will remain high this year and 
next. Both Democrats and 
Republicans say the record 
deficit is evidence ofthe failed 
trade policies of the Reagan 
Administration. 

The April figures released 
yesterday reflected both good 
and bad economic news. The 
deficit narrowed largely be-

LME fights on for 
special case status 

By Michael Prest, Financial Correspondent 


| The Loadoa Metal Ex- 
change will go on fi ghting for 
its members to be treated as a 
special case under the Investor 
Protection BilL 

Mr Jacques Lira, chairman, 
told a meeting of exchange 
members yesterday: “Well 
continue to that 

we're a special market and 
need special roles and wBl 
fight for that**. He was sup- 
ported by big industrial clients 
of the exchange. 

The LME*s argument tint 
measures designed primarily 
for private investors should 
not apply to trade or industrial 
clients challenges the Securi- 
ties and Investments Board's 
principle that all markrt users 
be governed by the same rules. 

But the LME has accepted 
the principle of settling eon- 
tracts between members 
through the International 
Commodities Clearing House, 
even if it wants to retain a 
modified version of its prompt- 
date trading system Instead of 
adopting the kind of futures 
contracts traded on most 
exchanges around the world. 

Exchange representatives 
wBl meet SIB officials on 
Tbesday to press their case for 
separate treatment The LME 
says that as most of its 
business is with industrial or 
trade users of metals rather 
than with private Investors, 
the proposals in section three 
of the SIB's draft Conduct of 
Business Rules should not 

apply. 

These rides inditde a provi- 
sion designed to prevent bro- 
kers and fund managers 
selling inappropriate invest- 
ments to individuals, a re- 
quirement on firms to conduct 


a client's business at the price 
most favourable to the client 
and a requirement that prices 
are quoted publicly, 

Mr Lion is still keen on an 
old idea that metal brokers 
wishing to deal with private 
clients should be individually 
licensed. But this idea, which 
arose out of scandals in the 
early 1980s, was dropped by 
the Government in favour of 
the principle that all types of 
broking should be subject, as 
far as possible, to the same 
rales. 

There is, however, a recog- 
nition in the senior ranks of 
the LME that other changes 
are unavoidable. Mr Michael 
Brown, chief executive, when , 
presenting the outline clearing 
system to the meeting, said: 
“We concluded some time ago 
that solutions other than the 
clearing house were 
impracticaL** 

He outlined a hybrid system 
under which the present 
prompt or maturity dates 
would be retained far the first 
three months forward, bat only 
on Wednesdays, for a further 
12 months. Prompt-date set- 
tlement will be kept. 

Instead of traders having to 
pay margin on their contracts, 
their original and variation 
margin — the down payment, 
usually 10 per emit, and the 
difference then needed to 
maintain that degree of cover 
as prices change — will be 
covered by bank guarantees 
lodged with the International 
Commodities Clearing House. 

The final proposal was that 
initially only fall ring de ali ng 
members of the LME could 
become clearing members of 
the ICCH. 


Pegler rejects higher 
bid from Tomkins 


233-50) 


FH Tomkins, the rapidly 
expanding industrial holding 
company, yesterday delivered 
its increased and final offer for 
Pegler-Hattensfey valuing the 
valves- to-building products 
manufacturer at £202 million. 

It also bought 2 million 
shares, or 6.5 per cent, in the 
market at prices up to 673p. 
Added to its original 3.7 per 
cent holding and acceptances 
received, Tomkins now con- 
trols 12.7 per cent of Pegler’s 
ordinary shares. 

Mr Greg Hutchings, chief 
executive ofTomkins, said the 
offer was intended to be a 
knockout blow. Peeler's 
board, however, rejected it as 
inadequate. Mr Rex Inman, 
the finance director, said: "We

Five Oaks 
acquisition 

By Judith Huntley 

Five Oaks Investments, the 
property company 29.9 per 
cent owned by Mr David 
Wield ns’s British Car Auction 
Group, has acquired a £7 
million portfolio from Abaco, 
the growing financial services 
and property group. 

Five Oaks, which suspend- 
ed trading on May 27, also 
announced a two-for-one 
rights issue at 47p-a-share .to 
raise £5.8 million net as part of 

the £6.1 million cash payment 
for three freehold properties] 
purchased from Abaca 

The 4«l will bring Five 
Oaks' net asset value up to 40p 
per share. The company ex- 
pects dealing to start again on 
June 17 at aprice of about 51p 
per share. This capitalizes it at 
£10.8 million. The rights issue 
is being underwritten by Rob- 
ert Fleming & Co with British 
Car Auction taking up its 
entitlement. 

Abaco has agreed not to sell 
its stake for 1 1, months on the 
condition that BCA maintains 
its current holding.- * 


highly-valued paper to our 
shareholders.’’ 

Tomkins is offering 29 of its 
shares for 14 Pegler shares, 
valuing Pegler at 658-7p a 
share, an 11.5 per cent in- 
crease on its first bid and 40 
per cent higher than Pegler 
shares before the bid was 
announced. 

The cash alternative has 
been raised to 600.7p per 
share from 529.3p. The con- 
vertible election has been 
raised to £5.50 in nominal 
To mkins convertible prefer- 
ence from £4.94. 

Pegler said shareholders ac-

forego Pegler’s 1 4.25 p final

of the cash to 586.45p. 


cause of generous supplies of ! 
low-cosi oil which caused 
imports, primarily energy im- 
ports, to decline by 10 per cent 
last month. 

Economic forecasters have 
been predicting for the last 
tiro months that US growth 
will pick up sharply in the 
second half of the year because 
of the favourable, unforseen 
factors of lower oil prices, a 
lower dollar, low interest rates 
and low inflation. 

But imports also dropped 
last month by 5 per cent, 
indicating that the effects of 
the lower dollar have yet to be 
beneficial and continuing a 
trend of the last 12 months. 

Some influential business 
leaders contend that the ef- 
fects of the high dollar and the 
record trade deficit on US 
industry has been so damaging 
that a wide spectrum of Amer- 
ican products are uncompeti- 
tive and will remain so unless 
the Government takes action. 

No profit 
forecast 
by Thames 

By Clare Dobie 

Thames Television, the 
London weekday television 
company whose successes in- 
clude Minder. Edward and 
Mrs Simpson and The 
Sweeney, is to be floated on 
the stock market next month 
with an expected value of 
nearly £80 million. 

It hopes to sell some of the 
18 million shares on offer to 
its viewing public. Thames is 
already carrying advertise- 
ments expressing its corporate 
message, and it has plans for 
further advertisements. 

It published a pathfinder 
prospectus yesterday, with 
most of the details of the 
flotation except the price, 
which has yet to be decided. 
Thames also announced that 
Sir Ian Trethowan. the former 
director-general of the BBC 
has joined the board. 

The pathfinder document 
sets out Thames' uneven prof- 
it record, with profits rising 
from £8.6 to £14.1 million in 
the year to March 3 1, failing to 
£8.75 million in the following 
year and recovering to £14.6 
million last year. There is no 
profit forecast, but Thames 
reports that advertising reve- 
nue is running 22 per cent 
ahead of last year. 

Thames operates under a 
franchise which expires at the 
end ofl989. It expects to retain 
the franchise after that, but the 
“pathfinder" points out that, 
if its application was unsuc- 
cessful it would continue to 
make programmes. 

The document also gives a 
warning that the proposed 
changes to the levy system will 
hurt Thames in the short 
term. 

Anglo United 
and Burnett 
discuss link 

The on-off relationship be- 
tween Burnett & Haflamshire, 
the troubled coal-mining 
group, and Anglo United De- 
velopment appeared to be on 
again yesterday with the two 
boards announcing talks 
“which may lead to a merger 
of the two companies". 

Mr David McErlain, chair- 
man of Anglo United, con- 
firmed that the hostility which 
had arisen from Anglo's £42 
million takeover bid for Bur- 
nett last month. 

“We are thinking in terms 
of a merger now because both 
sets of boards and their mer- 
chant banks are talking to one 
another", he said. 

“Now we are making sure 
that the synergy is good" 


War of words between 
Lloyds and Standard 

By Richard Thomson, Banking Correspondent 
Lloyds Bank's bid for Stan- ment of Uoyds’s record 


Lloyds Bank's bid for Stan- 
dard Chartered has gone a 
stage further with the banks 
sending letters to each other’s 
shareholders, a move which 
emphasizes the gulf between 
them. 

Sir Jeremy Morse, chair- 
man of Lloyds, has written to 
Standard shareholders reject- 
ing the valuation made by 
Standard of its United Stales 
subsidiary. Union Bancorp. 

la its defence document a 
week ago Standard's US ad- 
visers, Goldman Sachs, gave 
Union a theoretical market 
value worth nearly half the 
Lloyds offer although the hank 
contributes only about 20 per 
cent to Standard's total group 

n fits. But. according to Su- 
nny, “assets are only worth 
what they earn, unless liquida- 
tion is intended.” 

Sir Jeremy accuses Standard 
of exaggerating the differences 
of structure and management 


ment of Lloyds s record 
overseas. 

He says:“The statement ig- 
nores the improvement in 
capital and income which 
stem from our offer.” 

Sir Jeremy adds that ibe 
basic offer is now worth 762p, 
compared with Standard's 
share price of 803p, and would 

f ive an increase in income to 
tandard shareholders of 72 
percent 

Lord Barber, chairman of 
Standard, in his letter to 
Lloyds shareholders, urges 
them to vote against the 
takeover proposal 

Lord Barber maintains that 
Lloyds has '‘seriously 
underestimated" the many 
structural and commercial 
problems a takeover would 
create, and that the organiza- 
tional problems were magni- 
fied by the other objectives 
Lloyds had set itself. He 
argues that Lloyds does not 
have the management re-

Why bonds market menu 
is bringing indigestion 


The US bond market dropped with a 
thud on Thursday, a move duly 
followed by gilts yesterday. The 
markets have taken on board the 
general message, underlined by the 
Organization for Economic Co-opera- 
tion and Development this week, that 
lower inflation, foiling interest rates 
and stronger growth are on the menu. 
What is causing the present indiges- 
tion is the order the courses are 
arriving. 

The bond market foil, more than 
two points at the long end, was a direct 
result of evidence of a more robust US 
economy. The 1.5 per cent April rise 
in the leading indicators was the 
biggest for three years. 

The implication is that, while 
interest rates may come down natu- 
rally, there is less need for the Federal 
Reserve Board to be cajoled, into a 
discount rate cut to keep things 
moving. 

It is this belief that has been driving 
the dollar up over the past fortnight 
The dollar has sailed through the 1 70 
level against the yen and £30 to the 
mark with little difficulty. Yesterday, 
it was up around DM2.3250 and 
1 74.50 yen, pushing the pound down a 
couple of cents to $ 1 .47 in the process. 

The narrowing of the trade deficit to 
$1 2.07 billion last month, from the 
Si 4.52 billion originally estimated for 
March, added to the fun. 

The gilt market, in the absence of 
much to chew on at home, feeds 
almost exclusively on happenings in 
the US bond market. Yesterday's falls, 
extending to a point at the long end, 
reflected Thursday's drop on Wall 
Street, tempered by hopes that an 
early base rate cut could still be on the 
cards. 

However, a fall in the sterling index 
from 76.5 to 76.0, albeit entirely due 
to the dollar, and a £1.22 billion 
shortage, pushed money market rates 
up by a sixteenth. 

In the absence of an international 
lead, and the US bond market was 
treading water yesterday, domestic 
factors may play a more prominent 
role in the timing of the next base rate 
move. 

After the dreadful April money 
numbers, when sterling M3 jumped 
by 3.2 per cent a more respectable rise 
of between 0.75 and 1 per cent is 
expected for banking May, figures for 
which will be published in 10 days. 
That still leaves the 12-raontb growth 
rate at 1 7 per cent, comfortably above 
the 11 to 15 per cent target, and 
enough to keep the caution signals 
flashing at the Bank of England. 

One area where the new pragmatic 
monetary policy is clearly succeeding 
is in its effects on our old friend, the 
bill mountain. The Bank's commer- 
cial bill holdings, a bloated £16 billion 
a year ago, have plunged to less than 
£9 billion this month. 

The removal of this massive distor- 
tion will help the embryo 


comrnmercia! paper market, and this 
in trun should produce a slightly 
happier picture for broad money 
growth later in the year. 

A nail-biting finish 

The final stages of Dixons' £1.5 
■billion bid for Wool worth Holdings 
are going to be a severe test of nerves 
both for Dixons and for Woolworth's 
large institutional shareholders. 

Dixons has to decide where to pitch 
its final offer. It has no intention of 
paying “too much”: diluting earnings 
and setting up a disappointing 
aftermarket in the combined group's 
shares. The market would not thank it 
for that 

Woolworth shareholders, some of 
whom are busily trying to push 
Dixons' offer price up. will eventually 
have to decide at what price, if any, 
they are sellers. If Dixons does not 
respond to some of the wilder market 
expectations — and there is every 
indication it will not — Woolies 
shareholders who are not prepared to 
risk the possibility of a fall in the price 
should the offer fail, would have to 
take what was on offer or sell in the 
market 

Woolworth's shares are unlikely to 
fall to pre-bid levels of around 600p if 
Dixons' bid foils, because the defend- 
ing management has done an ex- 
cellent job of raising awareness of 
Woolworth and where it is going. But 
there must be a downside from 
yesterday's price at 835p, which puts 
the company on a multiple of 34 times 
last year’s earnings excluding property 
profits. 

The market is talking up the 
Woolworth price because the opportu- 
nities presented by the prize are so 
enormous. The vast floor space and 
low level of sales per square foot have 
not yet been made to work. Although 
talk of £10 a share, which raises the 
historic multiple to more than 40 , 
seems excessive, it is the future that 
Dixons is being asked to pay for. 
Dixons, if its bid fails, carries its own 
downside risk. 

It is in no hurry to raise its bid — it 
has until June 1 3 — and when it does, 
an intelligent guess might be around 
850p to 900p. At 900p the earnings 
dilution this year, assuming profits 
from Dixons of £100 million and 
Woolworth of £105 million, would be 
about 24 per cent before any merger 
benefits. Dixons, in its present mood, 
is unlikely to want to go higher than 
that. 

Its own share price performance 
could be crucial, as it was in the 
Currys bid when Dixons’ shares rose 
steadily in anticipation of victory.

TEMPUS 


Polly Peck’s image is 
still convalescing 


Polly Peck's corporate stand- 
ing in the City is still conva- 
lescing after the confidence 
shattering it took last year 
when analysts' expectations 
had to be severely downgrad- 


for taking a once-bitten, 
*yfce< fay approach to the 
Perhaps with -its new 
ADR facility, Polly Peck wffl 
find it easier to win friends in 
the US. 


cd just two weeks before the « 

preliminary results. While V-OmmOIl i>rOS 

yesterday's figures were in 

une with forecasts, it will take Common Brothers. 


une with forecasts, it will take 
more than one set of interims 
to rebuild credibility. 

The tOp fall in the share 
price to 1 9 Ip reflected partic- 
ular disappointment with the 
unchanged dividend. Ana- 
lysts had impressed upon the 
company that one way to 
improve its image would be 
to redistribute rather more of 
tire impressive earnings. But 
with an interim dividend 
cover of 16, Polly Peck is 
doing nothing to allay fears 
about the quality of earnin g* . 

The company says it will 
decide and review the divi- 
dend policy at the year end 
but this has done nothing to 
d am p en full-year expect- 
ations. 

Currency movements 
might have been specified as 
one of the reasons for cau- 
tion; in comparison with last 
year, the average exchange 
rate of sterling against the 
Turkish lira had moved 
about 60 per cent against the 
company. But apparently the 
overall effect of exchange 
rates has been relatively neu- 
tral, thanks to Polly Peck’s 
improved . currency 
management 

Nevertheless, margins in 
the agricultural division — 
which produced a near-£4 
million improvement to 
£26.8 milli on — were down, 
albeit to a still enviable level 
of 34 per cent If not curren- 
cy, that a shift in sales growth 
from the Middle Ea«a to 
Europe may be the reason. 

Electronics is still a far 
Smaller contributor at £1.7 
million. Here, too, margins 
slipped but are said to have 
improved since the year end. 
Textiles profits fell fay HL2 
million to £2.6 million. 

L MesseL, the company's 
broker, is staying with its fall- 
year forecast of £70 million 
pretax, np from £61 milli on 
last year but well below the 
£82 million forecast for 1984- 
85 which had to be so 
hurriedly downgraded. 

A prospective p/e of just 
four would normally look a 
giveaway. But both investors 
and the City can be forgiven 


Common Brothers, the 
shipping line rescued 10 
months ago by shareholders 
and bankers, was the stock 
market's worst performing 
share last year. For those who 
like to Kve dangerously it has 
the trappings of the punt of 
1986: a tiny share price and 
little scrip in circulation. 

Indeed, the shares jumped 
50 per cent, from 6p to 9p, 
after yesterday's interim re- 
sults to December 3 1 . That is 
still no comfort to investors 
who followed tips to buy the 
shares two years ago at I73p. 

Common now pins its 
hopes on the two passenger 
ships run by its Bahama 
Qnise line. The Chernobyl 
disaster, international terror- 
ism and the frilling dollar 
have persuaded many Ameri- 
cans to cruise at home rather 
than venture abroad. Baha- 


can easily be offset elsewhere. 
It operates in nine countries 
and about half its pretax 
profits originate overseas. 
The two biggest businesses, 
consumer advertising and 
marketing support (which 
takes in sales promotion, 
audio visual services and 
conference staging) each ac- 
count for 28 per cent of this 
year’s forecast pre-interest 
profits. Market research and 
specialist communications 
(including fiwanrt^i and cor- 
porate) account for a further 
18 per cent each. 

That spread of business 
sounds reasonably secure, but 
Lopex still has its problems. 
Last year’s profits of £23 
million were barely higher 
than in the previous year, 
because the company lost the 
large Seagram advertising ac- 
count and difficulties in 
South Africa. 

That virtual standstill has 
not dented the company's 
confidence, however. It is 
forecasting a 39 per cent 
increase in pretax profits 

On forecast earnings of 
9.35p after a 44 per cent tax 


ma showed a profit in the first charge- the shares are being 


half and summer bookings 
are up on last year. 

Overall, Common showed 
a pretax loss of £630,000 
against £17.9 million last 
time: Its other main business 
is the redundant drilling ship 
IRO Frigg in which all the 
equity has been written off 
Attempts to sell the ship have 
failed and a safe at any price 
is now being considered. 

Looking ahead. Common 
knows it must diversify, al- 
though attempts to find new 
ventures have so far come to 
nought 

In this light even the most 
hardened punters should 
note that the Swedish mer- 
chant bank GyDenhamar, 
which took a 7.7 per cent 
stake last year, passed np a 
chance to take up further 
shares at 16-lp. 


Lopex 


Recent events have taught 
investors that advertising, 
public relations and market- 
ing are intrinsically volatile. 
Clients can come and go, as 
can employees. 

Lopex, which is joining the 
stock market with a price lag 
of £19_5 million, c laims that 
its business is so well spread 
that a problem in one area 


offered on 153 times earn- 
ings. it seems that, in valuing 
Lopex, Kleinwort Benson has 
taken its cue from the good 
reception accorded to Charles 
Barker, whose share offering 
was oversubscribed 1 1 times 
last week. Charles Barker did 
not make a profit forecast 
but. assuming it increases 
profits by 20 per cent this 
year, its prospective multiple 
was between 13 and 14 at the 
offer-for-safe price. 

Lopex and Barker are simi- 
lar in that they are in roughly 
the same business, but dis- 
similar in that Lopex has high 
borrowings and Charles 
Barker has none. On May 2 
Lopex bad net debt of £6.3 
million a gainst shareholders' 
foods of £2.8 million at the 
last balance sheet date. The 
flotation will reduce borrow- 
ings by £ 1.25 million. Charles 
Baker's five-year record 
shows a steadier rising trend 

In both cases institutional 
holders are selling some 
shares. Of the 3.1 million 
Lopex shares on offer, 1.4 
million are new and 1.8 
million are being sold by 
existing shareholders, includ- 
ing Prudential Assurance, 
which is retaining a 5 per cent 
stake. 


ARC plans 
shopping 
centre 
on island 

By Jndlth Huntley 

ARC Propert i e s , a wheDy- 
owned subsidiary of the Amey 
Roadsttme Corporation, itself 
a 100 per cent snbsdiary of 
Consolidated GoM Fields, has 
unveOed plans for a £150 
nilfioo out-of-town shopping 
centre at Rmmymede, Berk- 
shire — dose to the M25 and 
Heathrow Airport. 

ARC proposes to bafid a 
glass-covered 600- ft long 
shopping mall on what will be 
a floating island rite, re- 
claimed from its former quarry 

at Rmmymede. The 1 hbUmxi- 
sq-ft retail development, 
which wiD include a 300,000- 
sq-ft department store as an 
tenant, will be sar- 
reunded by a yacht basin and 
name reserve. 

ARC has taken a year to 
revise its original plans for the 
260-acre site, of which 60 
acres wfll be devoted to retak- 
ing. The company sees the 
development as a way of 
bring ing back to profitable use 
land that has been 
“disadvantaged” by quarry- 
ing. 

But the site Is fo the green 
belt, and its future wfll lie in 
the hands of the Secretary iff 
State for the E nvironm ent, Mr 
Nicholas Ridley. Then fa 
likely to be a public inquiry 
into the ARC pr o posals. 

If planning consent for the 
scheme is given it wQl enable 
the company to capitalize oa a 
boosting sector of the property 
market The reclamation costs 
will be high. But the project 

nmlrna fiwanrial «wk» an A Bf 

has the she in its books at 

historic cost 

ARC Properties has another 
potential oot-of-towo retail 
site at Maidstone, Kent, where 
it plans a 500,000-sq-ft retail 
park: 

The company, which has a 
total land bank of a thousand 
acres for which it hopes to find 
new uses, fa a property devel- 
oper and trader, and as snch 
intends selling its develop- 
ments, at least for the time 


STOCK MARKET REPORT 


No one buyer would pur- 
chase the Runnymede scheme 
if ft goes ahead, and new ways 
of selling such investments are 
befog investigated by ARC 
ARC’S Rmmymede scheme 
would be a suitable candidate 
for the new forms of property 
investment vehicles mooted by 
the property industry. It could 
be sold to a consortium of 
investors or floated in. same 
kind of single asset vehicle. 


Rights issue worries keep 
shares in the doldrums 


The long spring holiday 
account ended on a depressing 
note yesterday, with invest- 
ment confidence still under- 
mined by recent heavy cash 
calls and fears of more to 
come. 

The liquidation of the port- 
folio of Ashdown Investment 
Trust — recently taken overby 
British Empire Securities — 
accounted for some ferae lines 
of stock on oiler, which were 
easily placed bat added to the 
general uncertain mood. 

The FT 30-share index 
slipped by 5.6 points to 
1321.2, while the FT-SE 100 
index dosed 6.4 lower at 
1,602.6. 

Sterling suffered at the ex- 
pense of a stronger dollar 
which was boosted by some 
encouraging economic point- 
ers. This dampened recent 
hopes of an early cut in 
domestic interest rates, so 
Government stocks fell by 
more than a point 

Stores also retreated sharp- 
ly, not helped by end of 
account profit-taking. Boots 
fell 6p to 254p on further 
reaction to the results. Free- 
mans, at 384p and Grattan, at 
392p. lost about 14p after their 
annual statements and GUS 
“A” turn Wed 25p to l,05Sp. 

Harris Queensway, still de- 
pressed by the rights issue 
situation, gave up 1 Op to 234p. 
But there were still plenty of 
bright spots to lighten the 
gloom. Dowty jumped 22p to 
240p on strong reports of a 
280p-a-sbare bid from Smiths 
Industries next week. 

Pegler-Hattersley was 
hoisted 35p to 644p following 
increased and final terms from 
FH Tomkins, 4p lower at 
318p Siebe advanced 25p to 
965p after Thursday’s doubled

THERESA 
GOOD REASON 
TO EAT FLORA 


THE REASON 


tsMay 




Y 




L 


You enjoy Flora for its li^it and 
delicate taste. 

But you also have a much better 
reason for choosing it. 

That reason is you. 

You know why you need to lead a 
healthier life. 

And you know about Flora too. 

Flora is made with pure sunflower 
oil, so it’s high in essential polyun- 
saturates, low in saturates and low in 
cholesterol too. 


But then if it wasn’t, it wouldn’t 
be Flora. 

Are you eating Flora for all the 
right reasons?

Why sayings certificates 
are still worth having 


Would-be investors in Na- 
tional Savings Certificates can 
breathe again. Changes have 
been announced concerning 
various National Savings 
curities, but the 31st issue of 
National Savings Certificates, 
paying 7.85 per cent tax-free 
re mains on offer, although if 
interest rates continue down, 
it could be withdrawn at a 
moment’s notice. 

A. National Savings officer 
said: ’It win be looked at and 
reviewed from time to time 
but no decision has been mgrfo 
to withdraw 31st issue.” 

With hank base rates down 
again from 10.5 per cent to 10 
per cent and pundits predict- 
ing base rates at 9 per cent 
before the end of the year, 
investors dependent on inter- 
est from investments to sup- 
plement their income, should 
not miss the opportunity to 
lock them 

Early Issues 
should not 
be cashed in 

selves into 31st issue — as we 
have been saying for many 
weeks now. 

And anyone with early is- 
sues of National Savings Cer- 
tificates’ which have now 
matured, should definitely not 
cash them in." 

Extension terms (that is the 
rate of interest paid on ma- 
tured certificates) have come 
down from 8 SI per cent tax 
free to 8.01 per cent, with 
effect from 1st June. But this is 
still as good as most building 
society accounts. 

Cheltenham & Gloucester 
Building Society, for example, 
the market leader for building- 
society, extra-interest ac- 
counts is paying only 7.3 per 
cent (basic-rate tax paid) for 
investments of between £500 
and £4,999. To get the top rate 
of 8.05 you have to have 
£10,000 or more to invest. 

But investors with mature 
certificates should keep an eye 
on the competition. Unlike 
the oiginal savings certifi- 
cates. which pay a fixed 
return, extension terms vary 
at short notice, although Na- 
tional Savings tends to try to 



to £100,000 with effect from 
16th July. 

Many old people win have 
money in National Savings 
income and deposit bonds and 
the interest rates here are to 
come down from 12 per cent 
to 1 1.5 per cent on July 1 ). To 
the basic-rate taxpayer, this is 
equivalent to an after-tax 
return of 8.16 per cent just 
about comparable to a good 
building-society, extia-iater- 
est account but not nearly so 
flexible. 

You are effectively locked 
into income and deposit 
bonds for a minimum of 12 
months as you receive only 
half the quoted interest if yon 
cash in during the first year. 
You also have to give three 
months' notice of withdrawal. 

Notwithstanding, the maxi- 
mum investment limits on 
income and deposit bonds 
have been increased from 


Eight per cent 
tax-free on 
big investments 


keep them competitive. 

In order lo stop the massive 
encashment of the index- 
linked retirement and 2nd 
issue of National Savings 
Certificates, the bonus for 1987 
is to be fixed at 4 per cent, 
which win be paid in addition 
to the 3 percent bonus doe on 
August 1, 1986. 

Disappointment for junior 
investors and all those non- 
taxpayers with money in Na- 
tional Savings Bank 
Investment Account — the 


interest rate is bong cut from 
ILS per cent (paid without 
deduction of tax) to 10.75 per 
cent from June 10. • 

At the new rate the after-tax 
return to the basic-rate taxpay- 
er works out at 7.63 per cent, 
no better than the return from 
a building society extra inter- 
est account and just as likely 
to be cut if interest rates foil 
further. INVAC is really only 
suitable for non-taxpayers. 
Ironically, National Savings is 
increasing the maximum in- 
vestment limit from £30,000 


£50.000 lo £100.000 as from 
Friday May 30. 

One thing stands out from 
the rhang p* , tfrai higher-rate 
taxpayers would be weQ ad- 
vised to buy the maximum 
amount of savings certificates: 
not just the current issue but 
subsequent issues, too. 

Gone are the days when 
National Savings traded on 
investors’ apathy and were 
able to get away with paying 
uncompetitive rates. Higher- 
rate taxpayers can build up a 
good holding in National Sav- 
ings certificates and could now 
be earning an average of 8 per 
cent tax-free on investments 
running into many thousands. 

An investor paying tax at 
the top rate of 60 per cent 
would have to see a before tax 
return of 20 per cent to be left 
with a net return of 8 per oent 

The only way to achieve this 
would be to invest in equities 
with all the attendant risks 
involved. Savings Certificates 
offer a guaranteed tax-free 
return and complete security 
for your money.

With interest rates falling, it 
becomes more and more of a 
problem to invest your capital to 
attract-and maintain-high levels 
of income plus good long term 
growth. 

Tyndall meet this chal- 
lenge with a Preference 
Fund that currently gives a 
gross yield of over 10%p.a. j 
And backs high returns 
with the likelih ood 
of appreciable 
capital growth. 

Of course, 
the Fund 
should be 
looked on as a 
long term invest- 
ment (the price oi 
units and the income from them can go 
down as well as up), but over the three 
years 1984-1986, total returns worked out 
at 38.6%*. 

The Fund is invested in a broadly- 
based list of preference shares, chosen 
partly because of their high yield and 
partly because of the extra security they 
provide through their prior call on a 
company’s resources.

Gartmore Japan Trust 


Consistent P e rf o rmance It doesn't take an 
investment expert to tell you that Japan's post-war 
economic achievement has been phenomenaL 

0 ver the last ten years their economy has 
grown by- more than twice the rate or the other 
major industrial countries. 

The "Financial Times" last week listed 
Gartmore Japan Trust as the best performing 
Japanese trust over five years, rising a massive 
257% * In other words every £ 1 ,000 invested on 
1st May 1981 had grown to £3,570 by 1st May 1986. 
Gartmore is the only management group to appear 
in both the five and one year performance leader 
tables with a rise of 74% * in the past year. 

Far Eastern Experience Gartmore is well known 
for its experience in Far East markets where over 
15 years ago we were one of the first institutions to 
open a Hong Kong office. We now employ a team of 
specialist investment managers who concentrate 
on the Pacific Basin and three of these specifically 
follow Japan, making extensive use of our Tokyo 
office. 

Investment Opportunity The halving of oil prices 
coupled with a strong Yen and cuts in the official 
discount rate of lY/'f) to 3h% since January augur 
well for the Japanese domestic economy. 
Consequently thelbkyo Stock Market is poised for 
a strong rally this year and domestic stocks are now 
the order of the day.

FAMILY MONEY/3 


Knowhow for young and old 


Raising public awareness is 
one of those turnoff phrases 
left over from the 1960s. 
Nevertheless, that is exactly 
what the newly formed Money 
Ma nageme nt Council intends 
to do about how we aQ handle 
our money — and they plan to 
catch oar children as welL 

.The council's director, 
Jeremy Leighton, says re- 
search has shown that primary 
school children are sadly lack- 
ing in financial knowhow. 

“The secondary schools 
have some good teaching ma- 
terials aimed at developing 
money management skilly 
Rut there is little going on in 
primary schools to teach 
younger children the base 
money sense they will need if 
they are going to have money 
to manage later.” 

And if this sounds prepos- 
terous to those of us whose 
youngsters are forever de- 
manding more pocket money, 
then Mr Leighton points out 
that times have changed. 

Despite the inflationary 
seventies when it was actually 
a good idea to buy as much on 
credit as possible, many of us 
stiD have the old attitude “if 
you can't afford it, then wait 
until you can.** 

This approach was perfectly 
acceptable in an age when 
people kept their money in the 
post office or under the mat- 
tress. But it sits strangely in a 
society where 60 per cent of us 
are home owners — and most 
of those homes are mortgaged 
— and where many of us are 
likely to be shareholders in 
major institutions like British 
Telecom. 

The Money Management 
Council, based in posh offices 
in London’s Belgrave Square, 
is mainly financed by founda- 
tions and the major financial 
institutions although its ad- 
vice is independent. This in- 
dependence is extremely 
important when you consider 
that most advice given to the 


public — except by financial 
journalists — comes from 
those with an axe to grind. 

The conned is a charity 
whose aims are officially de- 
scribed as the promotion of 
education and understanding 
in the field of personal money 

manflgMnwi t - - 

It will be in a postioo to 
attract money for special 
projects and Jeremy Leighton 
says that several large compa- 
nies have already made ft dear 
that' they want to help. So 
although the primary school 
consciousness-raising exercise 
is not yet under way, there 
should be no difficulty in 
financing it. 

As far as adults are con- 
cerned, Mr Leighton has long 


maybe contributed a penny a 
week towards their funerals 
and six pence a week to the 
roan from the Pro for a very 
small life insurance policy. 
The education system pro- 
duced a society which was 
reasonably literate but did not 
look upon itself as numerate. 

“In the last two generations 
home ownership has in- 
creased from lOpercentofthe 
population to 60 per cent. 
Ordinary people now have to 
make choices and decisions 
involving thousands of 
pounds about pension funds, 
mortgages, whether the asset 
represented by their home 
should be translated into an 
annuity, what to do with large 
redundancy payments. 


Leighton explained: 
rst of these exhibitions 



feMost advisers are 
on commission... 
weteachthe 
public to ask the 
right questions? 

— Jeremy Leighton 


personal experience of dealing 
with public bewilderment 
over financial matters. For 10 
years, up to 1983, he was 
national directo r of the 
Citizens' Advice Bureaux 
where a large and growing part 
of the workload involves 
money problems. 

“We are not just talking 
about the feckless and non- 
coping” he said. “There are a 
lot of very ordinary people 
who are faced with worrying 
decisions about money — 
many of them centring on 
credit. It is not surprising 
when you consider that until 
very recently most people 
never had to handle signifi- 
cant sums of money.” 

“They had a weekly wage, 
lived in rented housing and 


“At the same time financial 
services and products have 
been multiplying at a bewil- 
dering rate, and there is 
almost a plethora of informa- 
tion being buried at people. 

“But just about everyone 
providing this information is 
likely to be on commission of 
some kind. We want to enable 
the public to ask the right 
questions of their advisers.” 
The Money Management 
Council wifi not be providing 
an individual advice service. 
It will produce information 
leaflets, but Jeremy Leighton 
is concerned to see it does 
more than “add to the moun- 
tain of paper”. 

He aims to see that the 
financial awareness message is 
spread as widely as possible. 


and the council's first major 
project is a collaboration with 
the Channel 4 television pro- 
gramme, Money Spinner. 

This will travel round the 
country, in the same manner 
as the Antiques Roadshow, 
with a panel of experts to deal 
with inquiries from members 
of the public There wffl be 
written back-up material both 
for foe participants and for 
viewers who write in for 
additional information. 

The council has also been 
asked to set up a stand at the 
Money '86 exhibition, held at 
Olyznpia in November. 

Mr 

“The first 

was held last year, and foe 
people selling specialised 
products like unit trusts were 
nonplussed by the number of 
very general inquiries they 
received about things like 
endowment versus repayment 
mortgages. 

“It was obvious to the 
exhibition organisers foal 
there was a need for someone 
to meet this demand for very 
general information about 
finan ce.” The council will also 
be organising seminars for the 
people running specialised 
stands about bow best to put 
over information to the 
public 

Mr Leighton stressed that 
although some parallels could 
be made between foe role of 
his co uncxl and the National 
Consumer Council, these were 
limited. 

“We are not setting our- 
selves up as angels in a forest 
of demons. We want to be 
positive about money man- 
agement But we hope we will 
grow into an influential body, 
and take a cam pai g nin g atti- 
tude on issues over which we 
felt very strongly. But it is 
early days at foe moment”

The marital dilemma 


c 


TAXATION 


j 


The Chancellors Budget pro- 
posals for the reform of tax- 
ation of husband and wife 
seem to have found favour 
virtually nowhere. The latest 
critical review comes from the 
authoritative Institute for Fis- 
cal Studies, which says the 
proposals are totally unrealis- 
tic since the cost of imple- 
menting them as they stand 
would ..be .arouiKl £4,500 : 
million. 

What foe Chancellor pro- 
posed in his Green Paper was 
that everyone should have a 
single person’s allowance, but 
in the case of a married couple 
any unused portion of the 
personal allowance could be 
transferred to the spouse. This 
would mean that couples 
where the wife does not work 
would be able to make use of 
two single personal allowances 
- a higher figure than the 
married man's allowance. 

The IFS however favours 
foe recommendation con- 
tained in the 1981 Green Taper 
on foe taxation of husband 
and wife. This was that the 
married man's allowance 
would be abolished, couples 
would have independent. Don- 
transferable allowances, and 
the money saved would be 

used to boost child benefit and 

benefits for the disabled and 
those who look after them. 

The virtue of this solution is 
that it can be done on a no- 
cost basis and the extra bene- 
fits go to those families with 
children and elderly depen- 
dants - the families most in 
need. On a no-cost basis, foe 
IFS estimates that the aboli- 
tion of foe married man's 


allowance and switch to inde- 
pendent non-transferable al- 
lowances. would give 
sufficient leeway to increase 
child benefit from £7. 1 0 to £ 1 3 
a week, provide increases in 
benefits for the disabled, and a 
reduction in the basic rate of 
tax from 29 per cent to 25 per 
cent 

Alternatively, the IFS sug- 
gests that independent non- 
transferable allowances, ~ but 
no increase in child benefit,, 
would allow foe Chancellor to 
cut the basic rate of tax from 
29 per cent to 22 per cent and 
give everyone a 10 per cent 
higher single person's tax 
allowance. 

’ This would probably be 
politically unacceptable since 

Refonnsureed 

ouples 


to help coup! 


families with children, and 
married couples where only 
one partner works, would be 
worse off through foe loss of 
the married man's allowance. 
The Chancellor could howev- 
er compensate families on a 
no-cost basis by increasing 
child benefit but making it 
taxable. There is, in any case, 
little point in handing out a 
tax-free benefit to families rich 
enough to be paying tax at 
higher rates. 

The third proposal from the 
IFS is purely administrative. 
It suggests that the married 
man's allowance be renamed 
foe married couple’s allow- 
ance, the wife’s earned income 
allowance should be called the 
secondary earner’s allowance, 
and any individual should be 
able to opt for separate 
assessment 


The general consensus is 
that the Chancellor’s propos- 
als will never see the light of 
day - be said that reform 
would not be possible until foe 
1990s. 

But the biggest source of 
irritation could be removed 
without a major upheaval. 
The largest gripe from married 
couples is that a wife cannot 
offset the wife’s earned in- 
come allowance against any 
investment income she might 
have, because foe allowance 
is, as its name implies, 
offsettable only against 
“earned" income. • 

. A single woman does not 
have this problem as the single 
person's allowance can be 
offset against investment in- 
come: Many elderly widows 
would dearly like to remarry 
but often cannot afford to 
once they are living off invest- 
ment income and would be 
worse off married. 

It would be a simple matter 
' to change the wife's earned 
income allowance and give the 
. married woman a single 
person's allowance which 
could be used against invest- 
ment income. 

• To make matters worse, the 
wife's investment income is 
always treated as being foe 
income of her spouse and tax 
is paid on ft at her husband's 
highest rate. 

However, the Treasury 
might be reluctant to make 
these changes since foe cost is 
difficult to estimate. It is not 
known how many husbands 
have investments which they 
would be willing and able to 
transfer to their wives to take 
advantage of the extra tax 
relief

THE M&G GROUP 



FAMILY MONEY/4 


Gilt-edged guide 
to the mysteries 
of the unit trust 



The Government is keen to 
promote wider share owner- 
ship and turn us all into mini- 
capitalists. But for the small 
investor, there is no doubt 
that the uni t trust is the ideal 
vehicle for investing in shares. 

One of the main obstacles to 
buying unit trusts, however, is 
that the vast majority ol 
potential investors do not 
know what they are, and even 
if they did, would not be able 
to unde r stan d whether they 
woe performing well or badly. 
The industry has never really 
gone out of its way to explain 
itself to the unitiatedL 

So what is a unit trust and 
why is it a good thing? A unit 
trust is a fund in which small 
investors’ money js pooled 


Spread your risk over 
a brow selection 


and used to buy shares. The 
value of each unit in the fund, 
reflects the value of the under- 
lying investments. 

If the shares in which the 
fund has invested go up in 
price then the value of your 
units will increase too. The 
same is true when share prices 
fell — the value of your units 
drops. 

The advantage of a unit 
trust is that you can spread 
your risk across a broad 
selection of shares, and deal in 
relatively small amounts. 

No stockbroker would be 
interested in buying or selling 
£250 worth of shares. 

But having bought unit 
trusts, bow do you trade your 
chosen fund’s performance?. 
Statistics are more than just 
damned lies. For most people 
they are a wretched bore, an 
impenetrable mass of useless 
infor mation. If you are not. 
interested in finance, the acres 


of share prices and the unit 
trust figures The Times prints 
every Saturday may be useful 
•for lighting the fire, but little 
else. On the other hand, if you 
have investments you wm 
undoubtedly want to track 
their progress. 

But how do you do it? AJi 
the dots and algebraic symbols 
have meanings which bear 
directly on the value of your 
investments, yet accurate in- 
terpretation is no simple mat- 
ter. Take a look at the figures 
from last week’s unit trust 
prices (see excerpt at right). 
Believe it or not, they are 
simpler to understand than 
share prices. 

The first “Bid” column, 
opposite “GiJt & Fixed ” (there 
is no room to add “Interest ), 
gives the price of units in a 
fund which invests in govern- 
ment stocks, or gilts, and other 
securities where the rate of 
return is fixed. Simple enough, 
until you discover that the 
second column, marked 
“Offer”, also gives the price of 
the same units, but the figures 
are different Why?. 

The offer price is ■ the 
amount you pay when you 
buy units. The fed price is 
what the unit trust’ 
manager will pay to 
buy your units back. 

There is generally 5 
to 7 per cent differ- 
ence in the two 
prices, so that if you 
bought and sold onj 
the same day and! 
there was no price 
movement, ‘ you 
would be S per cent 
worse ofEThat dif- 
ference represents 
the fund managers’ 
income, out of 
which be or she has 
to pay . management 


expenses, all overheads and 
ad vertising and promotional 
costs. What is left after these 
outgoings is profit 

Next comes the column 
enigmatically entitled 
“Chug”, the sort of sound 
defeated villains make in com- 
ic books. The expla nation is 
more mundane; compression 
of space has forced the vowels 
out of the word “change” ,and 
the figures represent fire 
change in price compared with 
the previous working day. 

Last is “Y1<F. or yield; die 
number shown is a percentage 
of the Offer price. This is the 
return an investor will get in 
the form of half-yearly divi- 
dends. 

The bold dots indicate that 
the unit price is ex-dividend, a 
piece of jargon which means 
that if you bought units you 
would not receive the divi- 
dend because it win be paid to 
the previous unitholder. 

Dividends are normally 
paid half-yearly (thou gh som e 
income unit trusts distribute 
more frequently), and a unit is 
said to be ex-dividend after 
the cut-off point fix' receiving 
a payment has been readied. 
The small **c” means the cut- 


Ybusze. ymk wesmm 
keally is memi Feet > . . . 



off point is near, but buyers 
wiH stQl receive the dividend 
If they buy. They w3I (hen be 
huying “cam-dividend" ■ - 

The irony of it all is list 
unit trusts are thought of in 
the investment industry as 
being particularly uncongw- 
ammak A Unit price 
will not be so affected by ibe 
more technical factors which 
Bj»ate share prices jump 
around, and they are simpler 
to buy and seiL AH you really 
need to remember is that yon 
buy at the higher of the two 
quoted prices and seB bade at 
the lower price — naturally. 

But how do yon buy? We 
are getting keener on unit 
trusts as a s aving s medium, 
although a Unit Trust Associ- 
ation spokesman did say that 
there was still “ a great deal of 
education to do”. 

In the first three months of 
this year more than £2382 
milli on were bought, more 
than double the amount over 
the same period in 1985. 
Having made your choice of 
trust (often the most difficult 
bit of all) the simplest way to 
buy is to pick in? the phone 
and dial the number shown in 
lire newspaper's price tables 
“next to the fund 
manager's name. 
Most groups will 
take your order on 
the telephone and 
you will buy at that 
day’s price provided 
you send die cheque 
off straight away. In- 
cidentally, a number - 
of fund managers 
have a Freefone 
number, which they 
tend not to advertise 
because, according 
to one manager “ we 
would find insur- 
ance brokers and the 


like using it. rather than the 
general pubfie.” Fund manag- 
ers generally like to deal with 
clients on the photic beau* « 
is easier to so n out any 
problems there and then. 

The alternative is u> re- 
spond to a newspaper adver- 
tisement-

EUROPEAN 


F 


FUND 

An All-OuuCapital Growth Investment for Y)u 


ramUngton European Fund aims for 
maximum capital growth through invest- 
ment in shares quoted on the principal 
European stock markets. 

Europe is now one of the most popular areas 
for investment. But it is a diverse and complex 
market: for investment success strong links with 
the continent are highly desirable. Erarnlington's 
are with Credit Commercial de France, enabling 
us to combine CCF s expertise and knowledge 
of the European market with our own eminently 
effective approach to long term capital growth. 

THE FRAMLINGTON APPROACH 
Our special style is to concentrate on smaller 
companies and try to identify those with really 
good growth prospects before the rest of the 
market recognises their promise, aiming for 
exceptional capital growth performance. 

The results of this have been good, especially 
over the long term. 

OUR RECORD 

The two previous Framlington funds which have 
most closely followed this approach have been 
Capital Trust, investing in UK. shares; and 
American and General Fund, investing in the 
U.S.A. Both have done well. 

Over the ten years to 1st April Framlington 
Capital Trust was the very best performing of 
all the 275 unit trusts monitored by Money 
Management over the period. It turned an 
original investment of £1,000 into £11,150. 

And over seven years, our American & 
General Fund (started 197$) was one of the 
two best performing unit trusts out of the 27 
investing in North American shares. It turned 
£1.000 into £3, 639. 

OUR EUROPEAN LINK 
The manager of the fund is Philippe Herault, who 
has been seconded from Credit Commercial de 
Fiance. He is our link into CCF s research, while 
working in London with the other Framlington 
fund managers. 

The fund will hove a bias towards smaller 
companies: it is, for example, authorised to 
invest in the French Second Marche. 

In geographical terms the current emphasis of 
investment is on Ranee (34 per cent), Germany 



(13 per cent) and Switzerland (14 per cent) -with 
smaller holdings in Sweden, Italy. Holland, 
Spain and Belgium. There is currently a sub- 
stantial flow of new money into the fund. As 
this is invested, the proportions wiH change. In 
particular; the proportion invested in Germany 
is likely to be increased. The fund has powers 
to invest in Britain but will not do so for 
the present. 

LUMP SUM INVESTMENT 
5fou can make a Jump sum investment simply 
by completing the form below and sending it 
to us with your cheque. Units are allocated at 
the price ruling when we receive your order. 
The minimum investment for a lump sum is 
£500. There is a discount of I per cent for 
investments of £10,000 or more. 

MONTHLY 
SAVINGS PLAN 

S tarting a monthly saving s plan is 
equally easy. The minimum is £20 
per month, with a discount of 1 per 
cent for contributions of £100 or 
more. Accumulation units are used and are 
allocated at the price ruling on the 5th of 
each month. To start your plan, complete the 
application and send it with your cheque for 
the first contribution. Subsequent contribu- 
tions are by the direct debit mandate which 
we shall send to you for your signature. 


Investors should regard all unit trust invest- 
ment as long term. They are reminded that the 
price of units and the income from them can go 
down as well as up. 

By 22nd May the price of units had risen 
16.8 per cent to 58.4p, compared with 50.0p 
when the fund was launched on February 14. 
The estimated gross yield was 0.90 per cent.

want a depressing read, cry 
Blay’s Guide to Domestic 
Rates. If you live in a shire 
council your rales will have 
risen by 17.8 per cent on 
average, while ratepayers in 
Buckinghamshire, Cam- 
bridgeshire and Cumbria- all 
have to pay 30 per cent more 
this year than they did lasL 

According to Donald Black, 
managing director of 
B!ay’s,“The overall picture is 
grim. The feet is that rate bills 
are now a major item for all 
householders and in many 
cases they now exceed mort- 
gage payments.” 

The average increase in 
England works out at 16.72 
per cent, with Welsh rates up 
129 per cent, and Scotland 
rhmg tn g a more thrifty 8.42 
percent extra. 

What has happened to the 
supposed ciampdown on 
rates? Where have all the rate 
caps gone, and why did the 
Government bother- to wage 
war on the urban councils to 
try to make them curb their 
spending? 

In feet the Tories’ chief 
target, the London borougj 
have actually reduced tu 
rates by an average 3-34 per 
cent But there are wide 
disparities between the bor- 
oughs. For example, Bromley 
rates are levied at 134.5p in 
the pound, while household- 
ers in nearby Lewisham have 
to find 2329p for every pound 
assessed. 

Mr Black says: “The present 
system penalizes elderly peo- 
ple living alone, and those 
living in depressed areas., 
businesses which might otber-4 
wise start up or continue' 
operations in areas of high, 
unemployment are packing up 
or leaving.” 

But not everyone sharesl 
that view by any means. One 
London resident thinks her 
rates are “really good value. 
The council come round and 
keep my s tr e et clean, empty 


my bins and all the rest for just 
£8 a week. I have a spacious 
two-bedroom flat in the Ken- 
sington & Chelsea council' 
area. Who else would do all 
that for £8 a week?” 

She might well be pleased. 
Her rates of 98.9p are the 
lowest in the country, com- 
pared to the highest of 335-5p 
in Newcastle. 

With the excepti<m of Scot- 
land and the London bor- 
oughs, rate increases have far 
exceeded the pace of mflation. 
Scots, though, have stfll had to 
pay substantially more be- 
cause oflast year’s revaluation 
which resulted in sharp in- 
creases fix' many properties. 
The other pattern to emerge is 
that the South has done better 
than the North, representing 
yet another example of the 
Great Divide. 

The rates system, and the 
method of subsidy from cen- 
tral funds is fiendishly compli- 
cated, but the effect of the re- 
vamped rating laws and 
procedures has been to penal- 
ize councils who spend more. 


Formerly, the more they spent 
the more they received in 
subsidy. But; further changes 
tie ahead. 

A Green Paper fix discus- 
sion of rates reform was 
pubfisbed by the Government 
this January. The main pro- 
posal is that in addition to the 
presort rating system a com- 
munity charge, or rcsdents’ 
tax be payable. Current rates 
would be frozen and, allowing 
inflation to do its evil magic, 
should be negligible by the end 
of the century. 

. The new system, if ap- 
proved, would not come into 
force before 1990. well after 
the next General Ejection. Mr 
Blade believes the proposals 
offer a bener alternative to the 
existing complicated structure 
of rebates and subsidies.

Beware, the most respectable 
of cheques may be a forgery 


Bank drafts and building soci- 
ety cheques might not be as 
good as gold but for years 
people have been happy to 
accepr them without question. 
Cars, caravans, boats and 
bicycles have all changed 
hands quickly with owners 
taking new purchases home 
and sellers taking their sup- 
posedly safe cheque or draft to 
the bank. 

Now after a series of forger- 
ies which have resulted in 
misery and huge losses for a 
number of innocent people, 
police arc warning the public, 
not to pan with their goods 
until a draft or building- 
society cheque has been 
cleared. 

In other words, treat both 
types of payment with exactly 
the same caution as you would 
a persona] cheque. 

One man who did not, and 
fell victim to an expert gang of 
bank draft forgers was Gra- 
ham Sianborougb of 
Dunstable. 

Mr Stan boro ugh. a busi- 
nessmen, says he is “no mug 
when it comes to bank drafts", 
but the £8,500 Barclays draft 
he was given when he sold his 
Volkswagen Golf Convertible 
in April was good enough to 
fool him. 

It was a week later, long 


after his buyers had waved 
goodbye, hat his bank gave 
him the heartbreaking news 
that the draft was a dud and 
Barclays would not honour it. 

“I always had 100 per cent 
faith in bankers' drafts,” said 
Mr Stan boro ugh. whose trust 
has obviously been demol- 
ished the painful way. 

It came as little consolation 
ihat the local police agreed 
with him about the quality of 
the forgery, down to its water- 
mark. The tell-tale mistake, 
which nobody outside the 


been going on since March: 
forged building society 
cheques. 

Apart from a few Abbey 
National counterfeits, nearly 
all purported to be drawn on 
the Leeds Permanent. An 
estimated £300.000 of forged 
Leeds cheques have turned up 
over the last three months, 
having been used to obtain 
anything from a pair of Roiex 
watches to carpets, cars and 
hi-fi systems. 

Strangely enough, there 
seem to be at least three sets of 


One who has not is Mr 
Stanborough, who is now 
holding long negotiations with 
his insurers over his claim for 
theft through deception. 

What both Mr Stanborough 
and Mr Townley have found 
is a reluctance among banks 
and building societies to warn 
the public when such forgeries 
come to light. 

Mr Townley said: “I sup- 
pose they don't want to draw 
attention to ft.” As for Mr 
Stanborough, he was most 
annoyed at the virtual reftisal 


If a prospective buyer travels 200 miles to purchase 
a car, will the deal go through if he has to make a 
second trip once the funds have had full bank clearance? 


banking world could ever 
hope to spot, lay in the sorting 
code numbers, which related 
to a different Barclays branch 
from the one named on the 
cheque. 

At Scotland Yard, Detective 
Superintendent David 
Townley of the central cheque 
squad has also come across 
forged Barclays drafts, which 
have been used to obtain a car, 
a speedboat, a caravan and 
travellers’ cheques: 

What is worrying him more 
is a far bigger racket which has 


tricksters all copying Leeds 
cheques with varying degrees 
of artistic skilL The first series 
which came to light was badly 
primed with the Leeds back- 
ground logo missing, but Mr 
Townley described a later 
batch as “better than the 
original”. 

The police say they have 
had some success in following 
up the forgeries. Arrests have 
been made in connection with 
both the Barclays and Leeds 
cases and several car owners 
have had their cars returned. 


of any senior Barclays officials 
to discuss the matter with him. 

A Barclays official declined 
to comment on suggestions 
that the bank could do more to 
publicize the existence of forg- 
eries. 

She described the number 
of forged drafts as “minute", 
adding that staff were regular- 
ly reminded to be on the aierL 

At the Leeds, Peter Heming- 
way, chief general manager, 
took very much the same line. 

Pointing to the millions of 
building society cheques is- 


sued each year, he said adver- 
tising the existence of a few 
counterfeits could do more 
harm than good. 

"If we frightened the public, 
the whole system would fall 
down.” he said. But, Mr 
Hemingway pointed out. the 
Leeds had issued a statement 
to the Press Association news 
agency when the first forgeries 
turned up, 

Mr Hemingway's personal 
advice is that “1 would never 
dream of handing over a car in 
return for a cheque unless I 
knew the person concerned.” 

Such words of warning are 
echoed by Mr Townley, 
Barclays, and. of course, Mr 
Stanborough. none of whom 
would sell goods without first 
clearing a draft or building 
society cheque. 

However such fine advice 
brings practical difficulties. If, 
for example, a prospective 
buyer travels 200 miles to 
purchase a car. will he still go 
through with the deal if he has 
to make a second trip once the 
funds have cleared? 

Even express clearance, 
available from banks at an 
extra charge, takes at least 24 
hours and can be a serious 
incovenience.

Only gold beats houses 


Only gold has been a better 
Investment than the family 
borne, according to recent 
figures compiled by Nation- 
wide Btulding Society. 

The Nationwide says: “Ex- 
cept for the short term (five 
years), buying a bouse with rbe 
aid of a mortgage has provided 
average gross and net rates of 
return which are into double 
figures — consistently exceed- 
ing the rate of inflation. 

“If the notional rental value 
of living in the house is taken 
into account the net rate of 
return is considerably in- 
creased, taking it to 25 per 
cent a year in the case of a 
house bought 15 years ago.” 

The survey compares the 


annual rates of return of the 
most popular forms of invest- 
ment — building society ac- 
counts, bank deposits, unit 
trusts. National Savings Cer- 
tificates, shares and gold. 

“The raw average annual 
increase in house prices is at 
its lowest for the period 1980- 
85 and peaks at over 14 per 
cent for the 15-year period 
1970-85, a span which covers 
both of the house price booms 
of the 1 970s," says the Na- 
tionwide. “When transaction 
and mortgage costs are taken 
into consideration the same 
pattern emerges but with a 
much greater range. The sig- 
nificance of transaction costs 
is dearly illustrated by the 


negative return over the last 
five years while for houses 
bought before 1970 the rate of 
return is improved by borrow- 
ing on mortgage. This is 
because the average a nnua l 
rise in house prices exceeds 
the average mortgage interest 
rate over the given period.” 
“Comparisons with other 
forms of investment show that 
for the periods of 15 years or 
more the return on housing 
with a mortgage is exceeded 
only by that on gold, a medium 
which is used by few investors. 
Over the shorter ter m th e 
transaction and mortgage 
costs have a greater effect and 
housing as an investment fares 
relatively poorly.”

How objective 
is your advice 
on insurance? 



If you are buying a life 
insurance policy or unit trust 
from an intermediary bow 
sure can you be that he or she 
is recommending the most 
suitable product for you, rath- 
er than being influenced by the 
amount of commission or 
other rewards the intermedi- 
ary is getting ? 

The answer is that at 
present it is difficult to find 
this out But the problem has 
been taxing the Marketing of 
Investments Board Organiz- 
ing Committee (Miboc). It has 
been laying down principles 
and rules aimed at ensuring 
that the advice you receive is 
genuinely independent and 
the most suitable for you 
rather than for the pocket of 
the intermediary. 

MIBOC has therefore said 
that when the Financial Ser- 
vices Bill becomes law and the 
rules it is formulating under 
the terms of the Bill are 
formally introduced, various 

The reason It is 
being outlawed 

forms of incentives which lift 
companies and friendly societ- 
ies pay to intermediaries will 
be outlawed. 

A common form of incen- 
tive is the volume overrider. 
Some life companies will pay 
intermediaries bonus com- 
mission if they achieve a 
certain level of sales of their 
policies. 

Other life companies offer 
incentives to sell their policies 
such as free trips abroad, or 
gifts, such as free installation 
of car phones. 

The reason for outlawing 
arrangements of this nature is 
clear. Volume overriders, as 
Miboc has pointed out are 
“fundamentally incompatible 
with the provision of impar- 
tial advice”. The same is true 
of the other forms of 
incentive. 

It could be helpful to know 
of some of the deals on offer to 
intermediaries. Ir should give 
a clearer picture of the inde- 
pendence of an 
intermediane's advice. 

For instance your interme- 
dian’ may be attempting to 
sell ’ you one of the two 
products on the market from 
Familv .Assurance: the New 
Family Bond and the Total 
Investment Plan. 

These could turn out to be 
very good investments, but 
bear in mind that Family 
Assurance has just introduced 
a promotional scheme where- 
by for each policy sold the 
intermediary gets a ticket for a 
prize draw. The more policies 
sold, the greater the chance in 
the draw. 

The prizes are two sets of 
two places — for the inierme- 
diarv and his wife — on the 
Family Assurance sales 
convention. 

This might not seem a great 
incentive to sell Family Assur- 
ance policies. The sales con- 
vention is however to be held 
in the Bahamas for seven days 
in December. 

Keith Sankey, marketing 
director of Family Assurance, 
denies that the m*™** 
scheme is a last-ditch market- 
ing effort beal the Miboc 
ban. 

He says: “We want to 
stimulate sales for 1986, tins is 
not a new idea- He adm1 ^ 
the incentive scheme could 


colour the judgement of the 
intermediary but says: “We 
feel we have fairly good 
products anyway”. 

As for the Bahamas sales 
convention, it will not be all 
foa and games for the interme- 
diaries. There will be repre- 
sentatives from FA there and, 
Mr Sankey says “the interme- 
diaries will be discussing Fam- 
ily Assurance and its 
products”. 

Albany Life is paying vol- 
ume overriders — up to a 
maximum 25 per cent extra 
commission. For the first 
£7,500 of commission the 
intermediary earns on Albany 
policies, he gets a 10 per cent 
bonus, in other words an extra 
10 per cenL 

The bonus increases on a 
scale.ending up with the lucky 
intermediary getting 25 per 
cent bonus for sales commis- 
sion earned above £22,500. 
This works out at a £5.625 
bonus. 

Peter Kelly of Albany says 
that the company has always 
paid volume bonuses and “in 
any event our commissions 
are not aS high as some other 
life companies". 

Comhill Insurance says that 
it is abandoning its biannual 
dinner for intermediaries sell- 
ing their policies. It operates a 
prize draw at the dinners, 
again issuing draw tickets with 
each policy sold, thereby in- 
creasing the intermediaries* 
chances in the draw. 

Perhaps it was your broker 
who won last year’s star prize 
— a two-week trip to the 
Cam bean to watch some ofj 
the Test Match series against 
the West Indies. 

Signs are that some compa- 
nies are simply bumping up 


Straight to the 
intermediary 


their commission rates for 
intermediaries, in advance of 
the introduction of provisions 
which will effectively require 
the disclosure of excessive or 
above average commission. 

Sources in the intermediary 
market say that Abbey Life is 
offering an alarming 150 to 
1 80 per cent of the first year’s 
premiums in commission on 
hs unit-linked whole of life 
plans. 

This means that the lion s 
share of the first two years' 
premiums which you pay into 
the Abbey Life policy goes 
straight into the 
intermediary's pocket, ratheT 
than as an investment for the 
future. Premiums of this level 
are well out of line with the 
industry average. 

According to my sources, 
these are deals which Abbey 
has negotiated with individual 
intermediary firms, as op- 
posed to making them gener- 
ally available. 

David Baggaley, finance di- 
rector of Abbey Life, says that 
in January the company re- 
duced the level of business 
intermediaries had to do in 
order to qualify for an 
overrider. He denies however 
that the company is paying 
commissions of between 1 50 
and 180 per cent . 

Mr Baggaley said: “This is 
way out ofline, with what we 
pgv. I can not tell you how 
much we do pay because it is 
not our policy 10 c J uote

WE WON’T KEEP YOU HANGING 
AROUND FOR A MORTGAGE 


Buying a home can be a long and 
tortuous process. 

Indeed, at times it can seem as 
though everyone is working 
against you. 

That’s why we’ve set out to make 
at least one link in the chain both 
flexible and fast. 

The mortgage. 

A fast mortgage. 

Often, for example, well give 
you an immediate on-the-spot 
indication of whether or not we can 
lend you what you need. 

(Even if you need as much as 

£ 200 , 000 .) 

Then, once you've passed the 
normal credit cheats and your house 
has been valued, well give you a 
firm commitment Usually within 
just a few days. 

It’s the sort of service that 
could keep you ahead in a so- 


called ‘contract-race’. 

And it will certainly take some 
of the stress out of a very stressful 
period. 

Apart from the obvious advan- 
tage of speed our service is also 
very flexible. 

A flexible mortgage* 

We can offer you a repayment 
mortgage, endowment mortgage, 
or a combination of both. 

How much you can borrow 
depends of course on how much 
you can afford to repay. 

We can take over your present 
building society or bank mortgage 
so that you can take advantage of 
our competitive service. 

(Just ask for a quotation.) 

Or; if youd like to improve 
your home by adding an extension 
or central heating, we can increase 
your present mortgage. 


We can also provide bridging 
loans, personal loans and even 
house and contents insurance. 

A special offer; 

For a limited period, we won’t 
just offer you a flexible mortgage. 
WdH also offer you a cheaper 
package. 

Because as a special offer, we’re 
not charging our normal £125 
arrangement fee on any application 
received before 30th June 19 86. 

So if youd like a leaflet, just ask 
at your local Barclays branch. \Xfell 
be happy to help, even if you don’t 
bank with us. 

Strictly speaking, we can’t 
promise everyone a mortgage. 

But we can promise not to keep 
anyone hanging around waiting 
for an answer

FAMILY MONEY/6 


Are you getting the best out 
of your bank balance? 


c ACCOUNTS ) 

One banker described it as a 
$64,000 question. He was 
wrong: it's a matter of at least 
£22,666 million. Thai is the 
sum the big four high street 
banks say the public and 
businesses have on current 
account with them. None of 
that money is earning interest, 
which means that we're miss- 
ing out on over £1,585 million 
in interest (if it were all placed 
on deposit with the Halifax 
Building Society's notice ac- 
count at 7 percent APR net of 
tax for amounts of at least 
£500). 

After years of charging the 
public for their services the big 
cleaners rather begrudgingly 
offered free banking. They no 
longer charge for their services 
provided mat customers re- 


main in credit during the 
charging period, although 
charges for overdrawn cus- 
tomers have risen substantial- 
ly. Things have improved for 
customers in the black, but the 
feet is that the banks are still 
being lent huge sums of mon- 
ey. Rabn«* lying around on 
current account are interest- 
free loans to the banks. Why 

shouldn't they pay for using 
our money? 

It would be unfair to expect 
the banks to pay the premium 
rates offered by the building 
societies. Money transmission 
in particular and the banking 
process in general are expen- 
sive. But for the services they 
provide, the banks seem to be 
more than handsomely paid, 
with more than £20,000 mil- 
lion of our money working for 
them. Surely some sort of 
interest should be paid, albeit 


lower than premium rate, for 
the use of our money? 

The banks themselves say 
not. It’s not that we don’t want 
the extra money, it is simply 
that we are used to not 
receiving interest on current 
account so ire have learned 
not to expect rL 

“Our research shows that 
there really isn't much de- 
mand. We’re some way from 
paying interest on current 
accounts”, says Stuart 
Ranson, UK retail banking 
services chief at Lloyds Bank. 

At first blush his .statement 
strains credulity. Mike Fuller, 
head of Midland Bank’s busi- 
ness development, explains: 
“Customers discriminate be- 
tween transaction balances — 
that is, current account sums 
— and savings balances, such 
as deposit accounts. Customer 
actions aren't motivated by

the desire for interest on 
current accounts. Though if 
you did ask consumers the 
question, ‘would you like in- 
terest on your balance?, the 
answer would be - yes. 

“We did lots of research 
into what customers wanted, 
and they felt most strongly 
about charges, so we did away 
with them for credit 
balances.” In other woods we 
may want interest on our 
current accounts, but because 
we don't demand it strongly 
enough we are not likely to get 
iL 

There are some cheque 
accounts which do bear inter- 
est. The high street banks all 
have “ldgh interest” accounts, 
as do a variety of other 
finanrifll institutions ranging 
from Save & Prosper to 
American hanks like Citibank 

Savings. But most of them 
have restrictions — minimum 
investments, no overdraft fa- 
cility and minimnm cheqite 
withdrawals — which make it 
quite unlike an everyday 
cheque account Barclays, for 
example, has a minimum 
opening deposit of £240$ 
each cheque must be for at 
least £250, and costs 50 pence 
after the first six in every 
quarter. Lloyds is closest to an 
ordinary cheque account with 
interest; cheques of any size 
can be written, but only the 
first three entries per quarter 
are free, and the minimum 


Chance to gain 
competitive edge 


balance is still a hefty £2,500. 

It seems that interest is 
something only depositors 
with thousands to spare 
should expect at the moment 
However, there may be a 
substantial competitive ad- 
vantage to be gained from 
offering interest on all credit 
balances. 



Midland virtually dragged 
the other three bigclearers by 
the scruff of the neck into free 
banking. First to move of the 
big four, it offered the service 
for almost a year before the 
other three hanks did away 
with chaiges, during which 
time Midland claims to have 
enticed 450,000 customers 
from the other high street 
operatives. 

So is there any chance of 
interest being introduced on 
current accounts that are kept 
in credit? 

Leslie Priestly, chief general 
manag er of the TSB m En- 
gland and Wales, says: “The 
market is moving towards 
paying higher rates of interest 
which could lead to payment 
for all deposits, Indeed to 
charging for all services. But

Invest Now in The Future Growth of

AN ENCOURAGING OUTLOOK 


In the future, we consider Japan will continue to be 
a favourable area for investment Recent developments 
lead us to the conclusion that the huge potential of 
the domestic sector could be the major influence on the 
Japanese stockmarket this year. 

The important arguments for this view include: 

• The dramatic fall in oQ prices. Japan is heavily depen- 
dant upon imported oil and, as such, stands to benefit 
considerably from the halving in prices seen this year. 

• The 30+ percentage rise in the value of the Yen against 
the Dollar. Since the ‘Group of Five’ meeting last 
September the rise in the value of the Yen has enabled a 
significant reduction in interest rates. 

We believe this will benefit the economy and help 
encourage investment in the stockmarket 

• The Japanese Government intends to stimulate the 
economy through a variety of measures. Legislation on 
urban redevelopment and the bringing forward or many 
key construction projects should lead to stronger 
growth. The projected rise in real earnings should 
create a more buoyant consumer sector 


authorities have shown their 
intentions to develop Tokyo as 
a world financial centre equal 
to London and New York.

th. i subject is complicated, not 
least by taxation 
implications.” 

Anthony Hunter, bead of 
marketing at Barclays, agrees, 
describing interest on current 
accounts as “part of an evolu- 
tionary trend. There are cur- 
rent plans to pay interest on 
these accounts, but my life is 
full of contingency plans. It 
has to be.” 

If the banks do pay out on 
aH credit balances the con- 
sumers will end up with a fat 
wedge of the expense, as they 
did with free hanking Philip 
Girte, genera! manager of 
National Westminster’s do- 
mestic banking division, puts 
it this way : The cost of 
paying interest bn current 
accounts would have to be 
recovered elsewhere.” 


Hotline to 
instant 
law advice 

Lawyers are masters, among 
other things, of equivocation. 
It is so modi easier not to give 
forthright opinions, especially 
when that makes it more 
difficult to be sued. But times 
are changing, ail consumers 
can now avail themselves of 
advice which, says Keith Feet 
oftheLawcaU service, will “be 
positive, not equivocal”. 

Instant advice on legal and 
financial matters is available 
on the telephone at £10 a year 
for mdmdaals. The number of 
calls yon can make in that 
period is not limited, although 
the extent of the advice is. 

A tenner does not take you 
for in legal matters, even at 
knockdown rates. Users of 
“Lawcail” can expect advice 
“not on highly technical legal 
points, but certainly on what 
their rights might be if an 
employer is being difficult.” 

For possible lawsuits and 
the like, the service wifi advise 
on your rights, with the aim of 
cutting oat the first visit to the 
solicitor. Obviously, if you 
want to take a matter to coHrt 
lawyers are a necessity. 

If they do get it wrong, you 
can always sue the company, 
which has a “very targe m- 
demnity insurance premium to 
pay, larger than most private 
solicitors’ practices” accord- 
ing to Mr Peek Bat he adds 
that the insurance has never 
been needed for the advisory 
service. 

But litigation is a double- 
edged sword with the legal 
advisers holding the handle. 
The contestaaHts in a suit 
might lose out, but die lawyers 
generally make sore they are 
adequately remunerated, no 
matter which side they find 
themselves on. An advisory 
service for employers, based at 
the same address as LawcaB, 
is prepared to offer practical 
advice to company proprietors 
as well as their employees. 

That said, the service does 
appear to offer some fairly 
useful advice on the niggling 
technicalities which penmate 
some industrial legislation. 

The “Employers 
Protection” service consists of 
a leaflet of reminders and tips 
for bosses, pins telephone 
helplines based hi London, the 
North, the Midlands and Scot- 
land- It's my ranch the sort of 
thing the mall businessman 
might want.

One particular word of 
warning is to beware that 
Department of Employment

ant has been set on the

One possibility would be to 
levy a charge for each transac- 
tion done, such as a standing 
order, direct debit, cheque or 
automatic cash withdrawal.

and budgeting problems. 

Briefly, if you paid charges 
for each entry on your ac- 
count. but received interest on 
the balance, you woaJd pay 
composite rate tax. The bank’s 
charges would farther reduce 
the amount you would re- 
ceive, and would not beset off 
against your tax liability. Thus 


even quite a generous rate of 
interest would be seriously 
depleted. 

The upshot is that for a very 
small credit balance oa a busy 
account you might find your- 
self paying out more in 
charges than you would re- 
ceive in after-tax interest Fbr 
the small credit balance 
charge-free banking is best, 
while the customer wilh the 
larger credit balance ought 
perhaps to be looking at the 
high-interest cheque accounts 
already on offer.

take a look at your current 
account and see if you are 
getting the best value from 
your bank?

FAMILY MONEY/7 


Little help for those who have had big losses 

neale *« .. . 


Proposals to safeguard 
investors money if their fi- 
nancial advisers go bust have 
been _ pm forward by the 
Securities and Investments 
Board. The board hopes that 
its suggestions — to keep 
investors’ money separately 

on tryst, so that n is safe from 

the firms creditors — win be 
incorporated into the Fman- 
dal Services BilL 

But these proposals for the 
future provide tittle consola- 
tion to those who have already 
suffered substantial losses at 
the hands of their financial 
advisers. In 1981, hundreds of 
investors lost a total of more 
than £5 million — some, their 
entire life savings — with the 
collapse of investment advis- 
ers Norton Warburg. Five 
years on, some of those inves- 
tors have still not received any 
of their money back. And for 
two of them, the failure of the 
company was only the begin- 
ning of their problems. 

when Pat Myanfs husband 
was paralysed in a car 
acrident,he received £82,000 
compensation, which they 
gave to Norton Warburg to 
invest on their behalf By 
1979 Mrs Myant had handed 
over to the company another 
£172,000, including the mon- 
ey she had received on her 
husband's death. 

Norton Warburg now had 
all ber savings and Mrs Myant 
went off to Venice having left 
stria instructions with the 
company that she did not 
want any ofher money invest- 
ed in risk ventures. 

That was the last she saw of 
ber life savings. The first she 
knew that anything was wrong 
was. when she read a 
newspaper report that the 
company had collapsed. She 
has stir not been repaid any 
ofher money^and is virtually 
penniless. 



Out-of-pocket investors: Pat Myant, left, lost 
at least £160*000 wires 


“I have lost absolutely ev- 
erything and all I have is a 
widow’s pension,” she said. “I 
have a job as a housekeeper as 
this is the only way I can 
afford a roof over my head. 

“I have now seen a list of 
what Norton Warburg did 
with my money. It is heart- 
breaking. They bought travel 
tickets for £1300, they paid a 
doctor’s tax bOl of £5,500, they 
gave some woman £26,000, 
and another person whom I 
had never heard off 13300, all 
with my money.” 

Pat Myant refused to give

up the tattle to salvage some- struggle. Mrs Myant com - Then, six months after the 
thing from the situation. She 
obtained legal aid to lake 


mealed: “I have had a great 
deal of difficulty trying to find 
Counsel's opinion on whether, a solicitor who does legal aid 
she should bring proceedings work and who was prepared to 
lor damages against Lloyds - take on the Establishment, but 
Bank, Norton Warburg's the Law Society was a terrific 

help in finding a firm for me." 

Jane Davies’s husband died 
in 1978 and one of the 
directors of Norton Warburg 
was executor of the estate. 
The winding-up of it was 
never completed and Mrs 
Davies lost at least £160,000 
when Norton Warburg 
collapsed.

bankers, and/or the Bank "of 
England, for any responabD 
ity they may lave lad for the 
collapse. 

But it has been an uphill 


failure of the company, Mrs 
Davies was awarded damages 
for her husband's death in a 
road accident. She was ex- 
tremely satisfied with the way 
ber solicitors had handled the 

I expected a bOl, 
but not a bomb 

case, but she was told after- 
wards that she was doe to pay 
them legal fees of more than 
£20,000. This was over and 
above the fees due to them 
from the losing, party. Such 


extra fees are known as 
solicitor/client costs and may 
have to be paid even if you 
win your case. 

Mrs Davies commented: ”1 
knew a bill was coming but the 
amount of it was like a bomb 
through the letterbox. I decid- 
ed to nave the bill taxed, and 
on taxation the fees were 
reduced to about £10,000. The 
whole business of having the 
bill taxed was rather daunting, 
but in my case it was absolute- 
ly worthwhile.” 

Five years after the Norton 
Warburg failure, Jane Davies 
also has not received back any 
of the money she lost. Like Pat 
Myant she has had a constant 
battle trying to obtain infor- 
mation on what happened to 
the missing funds. “Whichev- 
er way f mm, it’s like a brick 
wall with the Director of 
Public Prosecutions and the 
Fraud Squad. I feel that the 
avenues of justice open to me 
have been effectively blocked. 
I feel badly let down by British 
justice. A company can take 
all your money and seemingly 
get away with it.” 

The spectre of Norton War- 
burg constantly haunts her, 
and it is now in the form of the 
Inland Revenue. They are 
trying to claim tax on the 
money she never received 
from her husband's estate. She 
is having to take further legal 
advice to sort out this 
problem. 

Perhaps the final comment 
on the plight of investors who 
lose their savings should come 
from Pat MynanL “If we had 
been mugged, 1 am sure that 
the offenders would have been 
brought to justice by now. I 
only hope that the directors of 
Norton Warburg know bow 
much misery they have 
caused.”

Growth or income ? 
Now have your cake & 

eat your gateau. 



The new GT International Income 
Fund offers a unique opportunity. Not just 
for long-term capital growth, but for an 
income designed to grow over time. As an 
investor, you no longer have to choose 
between growth and income, because the 
new GT fund is designed to give you the 
benefit ofboth. 

THE ADVANTAGES OF 
GOING INTERNATIONAL. 

By spreading your investment across 
the world, you are not dependent on the 
economic performance of any single 
country. You are not at the mercy of 
short-term fluctuations in any ini 
vidual marketThe managers of 
this new fund have the flexi- 

t 1* '8“*’-’'- 

baity to put your money 
to work wherever it will 
deliver the best results. 

They have the cur- 
rency hedging expertise to 
protect the value ofyour holding, 
and whether investing in overseas * 
equities or government bonds, they 
can concentrate on those foreign markets 
which promise the best prospect of growth 
and income performance. 

THE SPECIAL EXPERTISE 

OF GT ROUND THE WORLD. 

Currently, GT has over £3 billion under 
management right round the globe, which 
already gives us a huge presence on the inter- 
national scene. Our offices in Hong Kong, 
Tokyo, Sydney and San Francisco are con- 
stantly monitoring and researching their 


local markets, providing a unique level of 
investment expertise in those areas. 

In a recent survey of London stock- 
brokers, our existing purely 
capital growth orientated 
International Fund was 
rated as the best of 
its kind. 



and GT has 
twice been voted 
Fund Managers of the 
Year by The Observer. 

THE IMPORTANCE OF AN INCOME 
WHICH GROWS OVER TIME. 

Unlike the income from, say, a building 
society ordinary share which can only rise 
anymore importantly, fall inline with general 
interest rates, income based on equity hold- 
ings tends to rise with each passing year. 

For example, £1000 invested in 1973 in 
our UK based income fund would have paid 


a net income of £4030 in 1974, but by 1985 
the income from that investment had risen 
to £195.60 -an increase of 385%. Over the 
same period, the annual income from a 
building society ordinary share had in- 
creased by only £1.00. iSourarDeZoete&Bevsni 

TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE 
NEW FUND RIGHT NOW 

With the prospect oflower interest 
rates and a further decrease in the rate 
of inflation, equity funds look more attractive 
as an income source than at any time since 
the sixties, and the international nature of 
the fund should ensure healthy long-term 
capital growth as welL 

The price of units and the income from 
them can go down as well as up. 

But in the current economic climate, 
the GT International Income Fund should 
provide a more than satisfactory amount of 
icing on the cake.

That's almost certainly far less than you 
are paying on your existing commitments. 
And you can spread the repayments 
over a longer more comfortable period to 
suit your budget Any period from 3 to 10 
years. So your monthly repayments could 
easily be half what they are now, most 
people even find they have cash in hand. 

There is no penalty for 


early settlement - interest is 

charged only on the balance outstanding. 

YOURS TO SPEND AS VOU WANT 


Charterloan can be spent on anything you 
wish, not simply to clear your existing loans. 

You can use it to pay for a family 
holiday, or a new car. A brand new kitchen 
or home extension. 

If the whole loan is used for home 
improvements you may qualify for tax relief at 
source, further reducing your monthly repayments.

( ANTIQUES ^ 

The highlight of the world’s 
most important antiques fair 

— to be opened this year by 
Princess Maigaret at Grosve- 
nor House on June 11 — is to 
be the Cartier Display. It is on 
loan from Cartier’s Museum 
in Geneva and from private 
collectors and members of the 
Cartier family. None of the 
exhibits, however, is for sale. 

The lair takes place in the 
Great Room of Grosvenor 
House, where 89 members of 
the British Antiques Dealers 
Association will be showing 
some of the finest authenticat- 
ed pieces they have been able 
to muster. Exhibits which will 
arouse much interest include 
Spink’s rare and magnificent 
Queen Anne Brittania silver 
wine cistern and matching 
fountain made by William 
Lukin, London. 1707, valued 
at £550,000 

Fine antiques of any kind 
are becoming increasingly dif- 
ficult to find, but you might 
. fancy Apier-Fredenck’s beau- 
* tifully carved George n ma- 
hogany chair circa 1 740 priced 
at £14,000. Spencer Perceval, 
son of the second Earl of 
Egmont, the only British 
Prime Minister ever to be 
assassinated, was shot while 
sitting in it by the lunatic 
Bellingham, in 1812. The 
Times of the day quotes the 
Duke of Cumberland as say- 
ing: “I saw Mr Perceval lying 
dead in a chair in the 

Speaker's Chamber, off the 

lobby of the House of Com- 
mons, with a surgeon and 
several other persons standing 
by.” . . 

Less expensive souvenirs of 
a visit are. of course, available 

— such as an exquisite Taper 
stick” for £25 and prints at 
£75. 

Some startling financial 

gains have been made in 
antiques. Unlike racing and 
the stock market, you cannot 
study form. .An is very person- 
al and fashion fickle. Guide- 
lines, such as Miller’s 
Collectors’ Guide, can be only 
a starter. Like the skateboard 
craze that lasted so short a 


time, you can take a tumble. 
But at least, if you buy what 
you like, you have something 
concrete to keep for the future 
for the next revival — even if it 
takes a generation or so. 

The experts always say “buy 
the best you can afford''. 
Quality and condition are all 
important unless something is 
unique and hard to come by so 
that price isn't affected. Use 
your gut instinct Look at the 
best in fairs and exhibitions. If 
you haven’t seen something 
before, it might be rare and 
valuable — particularly to 
museums and collectors. But 
watch out for fakes. If you are 
going to pay a lot, go to a 
reputable establishment or 
dealer. 

Laird Cowes, director of 
the silver department at 
Spink’s, says: Tf you go for 

Buyers should look 
at pre-1740 silver 

the very finest, you are ex- 
tremely unlikely not to make a 
profit." He tells a very human 
story against himself of oppor- 
tunity missed. 

“In the late 1950s 1 was 
offered an Elizabethan salt 
cellar for £800. As 1 bad only 
started out on my own then, I 
couldn't afford to buy Jl_ 
Subsequently in the 1970s 
Sotheby’s sold it for £13,000- 
II is worth in excess of 
£100,000 now." 

Taking quality into consid- 
eration, he suggests purchasers 
would do well in buying silver 
not much later than 1740 
“when individual craftsmen 
made individual pieces. You 
can’t be too early of course. 
Names of those who produced 
great things are important as 
well.” 

John Sandon of Phillips, the 
auctioneers, suggests that peo- 
ple should have their china 
and glass revalued periodical- 
ly for reinsurance “as there 
have been some dramatic 
increases, although glass las 
not increased as much as 
ceramics .** The gap between 
the ordinary, and the fine and 
special, has widened apprecia- 


bly. “Pieces selling at between 
£30 and £40 four or five years 
ago will often make £60 to 
£70, whereas a good piece 
formerly worth £2,000 may 
well be worth £4,000 plus 
today." 

Antiques from the 18th 
century have shown a greater 
increase than those of the 19th 
century over the last five 
years, especially in English 
pottery pre-1760. There is 
demand for ironstone and 
high quality Regency porce- 
lain cabinet pieces, dinner, 
dessert and tea services made 
during the first quarter of 1 9th 
century. The 1 9th and 20th 
centuries *have not increased 
so significantly, except pieces 
by particular artists and de- 
signers, such as Christopher 
Dresser. Pieces that cost rather 
out of the ordinary, such as 
those exhibited at places like 
Harrods and Liberty, are 
worth buying, Collectors go 
for names. 

Highlight at the Grosvenor 
House fair will be the rare 
Vincennes Ecuefle Cover and 
Stand with Gilt Decoration, 
circa 1753 exhibited by Earle 
D. Vandekar. price £15,000, 
which will no doubt find an 
appreciative buyer looking for 
rarity and quality. 

Whitford. & Hughes are 
exhibiting an oil “Rendez- 
vous" by William Goddard 
(1861-1922) at the Grosvenor. 
Goddard began bis artistic 
career when the predilection 
for classical painting in Britain 
was at its height, accelerated 
initially in 1864, when lord 
Leighton was made President 
of the Royal Academy, and 
then from 1870 onwards when 
Alma Tadema settled in En- 
gland. 

When the fashion for classi- 
cal art declined, Goddard, a 
sensitive, kmely man, took his 
own We. This beautiful paint- 
ing of his model is priced at 
£48,000. 

Adrian Mi bus of Whitford 
A Hughes speaks of these 
tum-of-the-cenuiry classical 
paintings: “The individual 
name is not necessarily impor- 
tant. It is the quality of the 
work that is relevant and what

What about prints? Jona- 
than Rendle of Christie’s gives 
useful advice, even though 
prints have not gone up in 
value as much as some other 
things. “Look for early 20th 
century British prints, includ- 
ing woodcuts. The strongest 
section are good Old Master 
prints from a few hundred 
pounds upwards. The Rem- 
brandt prints in the 
Chatsworth Sale at Christie's 
last December went for 
£500,000, the highest price 
ever paid for a print Howev- 
er, there is not much interest 
in indifferent Old Master 


prims and buyers are extreme- 
ly fussy. Condition is every- 
thing — no abrasions, or prints 


that have been cut" 


if 


John Carlton-Smith, an ex- 
hibitor. says: “English clocks 
and barometers are still rea- 
sonable when compared to 

Something superb, 
never seen before 


continental The buying pub- 
lic have far less to choose from 
now, particularly good and 
interesting pieces. Therefore, 
it’s a very safe bet in my 
opinion, to purchase anything 
in the dock and barometer 
world from a reputable and 
established dealer that pleases 


you enough to live with it 
Late J7ih cemury/early J8ih 
century clocks are perhaps 
performing a little on the low 
side prioewise. Apart from the 
more important pieces, this is 
an area where there is room 
for improvement” 

Sc what are likely to be the 
best buys? .Alistair Sampson of 
the British Antique Dealers 
Association says: "Those 
made by the bravest who buy 
something quite wonderful 
never seen before. The deepest 
pocket always wins.”

THE WARDLEY JAPAN GROWTH TRUST 



£42,160 SINCE OCTOBER 1982 


If you had taken the opportunity 
to invest £10,000 in the W&rdley Japan 
Growth Trust when it was launched in 
October 19S2 you would have seen your 
money grow to a staggering £42460 
(by 28th May). That’s a growth of 321.696 in 
under four years. Have your investments 
performed as well over this period? 

Now we are offering you the opportunity to 
invest in this high performing Unit Trust directly 
off this page. 

Wardley’s consistently outstanding 
investment record . 

The superb performance of the Wardley Japan 
Growth Trust is not an overnight wonder'. 

Units have shown a dramatic increase in 
value of over four times since the Fund's launch 
in September 1982. 

This remarkable investment performance is 
increasingly being accepted by serious investors as 
par for the course for Wardley Unit Trusts. The 
Wardley International Growth Trust has grown in 
value by 58 % * since its relaunch in November 
1985, and the Wardley European Growth Trust has 
increased in value by 10096 * since it was launched 
in January 1985. 

How do Wardley do it? 

The answer is simple. Wardley's pro- 
fessional team of expert advisers work 
exceptionally hard in analysing, inter- 
preting, and forecasting market move- 
ments. Our Japan Growth Trust is actually 
advised by our Fund Management team 
in theirTo'kvo Office. They are 'on the spot' to 
take advantage of investment opportunities as 
and when they arise. 

In fact, although the Nikkei-Dow index has itself 
grown rapidly over the last four years, it has been 
consistently beaten by the Wardley Japan Growth 
Trust. 



Will the Wardley Japan 
Growth Trust maintain its 
growth performance? 

We believe that future prospects for 
continued growth from this Fund look 
excellent. As the Japanese economy 
continues to flourish, selective investment 
opportunities are likely to be found in 
companies with household names such as 
Sony, Honda, JVC.Casio.Nikon andToshiba. 
Of course, this rate of growth 
cannot be guaranteed to continue, 
and the value of the units and the 
income from them can godown 
as well as up.

( INSURANCE ) 

Mrs Alice Smith, a Times 
reader, was walking her puppy 
a couple of months ago when 
the dog slipped its collar and 
ran across the road, causing a 
car accident in which several 
people were injured — fortu- 
nately not seriously. “But,** 
she asks, “am I covered by my 
household contents insurance 
policy?" 

Explains Chris Vecchi of the 
Association of British Insur- 
ers: “Basically the injured 
party has to prove negligence 
on the part of the dog's owner. 

If they can prove that you 
were negligent, your third- 
party liability cover included 
in most standard household 
contents policies would nor- 
mally cover you for claim s up 
to £500,000/ 

Pets have a habit of being 
destructive, if not causing 
accidents. For what else are 
you covered? 

If your property is 
scratched, chewed, tom or 
fouled by your pet, or by 
vermin such as rats or moths, 
your household contents poli- 
cy is unlikely to cover the 
damage. 

Few insurers offer this cover 
as part of an accidental- 
damage option to a buildings 
or contents policy-. Sun Alli- 
ance is an exception — for 
damage caused by your own 


Pet fears you can 
guard against 


pet they will cover all but the 
first £25 of each daim for 
repair or replacement 

The reason given for the 
usual exclusion is that fre- 
quent often small, claims 
result in payment and admin- 
istration costs which will push 
up premiums. 

But what happens if some- 
one rise’s dog lurches into 
your cabinet of valuable 

It is wise todieck 
the small print 

china, or your dog decides to 
stage a fight in a shop full of 
antique docks? 

Then the insurance compa- 
nies win pay up in most cases; 
even if the pet owner is found 
to be negligent But beware. In 
an effort to cut premiums' 
some insurers have now ex- 
cluded even this accidental 
damage cover from the per- 
sonal Liability section of con- 
tents policies. It may be wise 
to check the small print of 
yours. 

If death or injury results 
from some action by your pet, 
as in Mrs Smith's case, claims 
will be met by the legal 


liability provision of your 
contents policy up to the 
policy limit In many cases 
this is £500,000, although 
some have cover for up to 
£250,000 and others, such as 
Royal provide a million. 

This cover will not apply if 
the injury results from a 
deliberate act by the policy 
holder, such as setting a fierce 
dog on an unwelcome visitor. 

The third-party liability 
provision in most contents 
policies is worded to cover 
personal liability as a house- 
holder at a particular address. 
It can therefore be claimed 
technically that if your pet - a 
horse, say - is housed away 
from the home, an accident 
caused by it is not covered. 

Though a daim will often be 
met without challenge, it is 
better, when insuring, to make 
the company aware of the 
location of pets and ensure 
that you are covered. 

Another area of potential 
dispute is in the definition of a 
pet When is a pet a pet, and 
when is it a dangerous crea-. 
lure? Some policies specifical- 
ly exclude liability for 
dangerous animals, and on all 
proposal forms you are asked

to inform insurers of any 
special risks. 

Undoubtedly poisonous 
spiders, piranha fish, snakes 
and the like do present a 
special risk. It is better to seek 
out an insurer who will state 
that your pet is covered than 
risk having to fight over a 
claim. 

One good way to do this is 
to list all things you are 
concerned may not be covered 
and include them as Dart of 
your application. 

Many pet owners are 
shocked to fold that their pets 
are not counted as 
“possessions” under their 
contents policies. If you have 
a tank of valuable goldfish 
which gets broken, your tank 
w ill be repaired or replaced 
but not the fish. The Son 
Alliance policy can be extend- 
ed to insure a defeat or pony, 

A separate contents 
policy is possible 

and other insurers have simi- 
lar options. 

There are specialist insurers 
of pets and other animals who 
provide for vets' fees, early or 
accidental death, loss by theft 
or straying, advertising and 
rewards for lost pets, and 
boarding fees if the owner has 
to go into hospital 

u you have a building 
society mortgage, note that 
although it is normal practice 
to insure the building through 
the society, it is possible to 
have a separate contents poli- 
cy which could be cheaper, or 
for pet owners, meet needs 
more closely.

The Equitable has recently had an Educa- 
tional Trust established (with all the tax advan- 
tages ofcharitable status), thars designed to save 
you thousands of pounds on public school foes. 

For example, a single contribution of 
£8,467.08 could, after 10 years, provide 
£48,852 worth of school fees* in total over the 
foUowing7years. 

At a saving of 82%. 

Or you may prefer to spread the cost by 
making regular contributions. Either way, if 
you’re thirtidng of putting your child’s name 
down for public school, put his name down for 
an equitable School Fee Trust Plan. Cut out the 
coupon or phone 01-606 6611 for details.

No public interest 
immunity for 
adoption files 


Regina v Bournemouth Jus- 
tices, Ex parte Grey 
Same v Same, Ex parte Rodd 
Before Mr Justice Hodgson 
[Judgment given May 231 

There was no public interest 
immunity attaching to the 
information obtained and the 
documents prepared by an 
adoption agency, approved 
pursuant to the Children Act 
1975, where those matters, ob- 
tained by a social worker of the 
agency in respect of the possible 
adoption of the child of an 
I unmarried couple, were sought 
in affiliation proceedings be- 
tween the couple. 

Accordingly, the justices had 
acted correctly in issuing a 
witness summons, under sec- 
tion -97(1) of the Magistrates' 
Courts Act 1980. directing the 
social worker to attend the 
affiliation proceedings. 

Mr Justice Hodgson so held in ' 
the Queen's Bench Division 
when be refused the application 
of Robin Grey, a social worker 
of an approved adoption 
agency, for an order of certiorari 
to quash the witness summons 
issued by the Bournemouth 
Justices, dated August IS. 1985. 
requiring bis attendance in 
affiliation proceedings to be 
heard before them between 
Anita Rodd and . Robert 
Weaver- 

Miss Rodd also applied for 
certiorari to quash the summons 
and mandamus directed to the 
justices to issue the summons to 
Mr Grey not only to attend to 
give evidence but also to pro- 
duce a documenL 

Miss Judith Parker for the 
social worker, . Mr Steven 
Whitaker for Miss Rodd; Mr 
Robin Miller for the justices. 

MR JUSTICE HODGSON, 
in a reserved judgment, said that 
a child had been born to Miss 
Rodd who alleged that Mr 
Weaver was the father, he 
denkd paternity. 

She also said that prior to the 
birth of the child die and Mr 
Weaver had had discussions 
with a social worker at an 
adoption agency and that Mr 
Weaver had signed a form 
accepting that be was the father 
of the child. 

His Lordship said that, al- 
though the justices should not 
have determined on the applica- 
tion for them to issue a witness 
summons against the social 
worker, whether the social 
worker was entitled to claim 
immunity from giving evidence, 
there was no doubt that they 
were entirely right to issue the 
summons (see R v Greenwich 
Juvenile Court, Ex pane Green- 
wich London Borough Council 
((1977)76 LGR 99, 104)). 

It was agreed by all parties 
before the court that if a witness 
summons could be issued 


against the social worker there 
was nothing to prevent it indud- 
■ ing also an order to produce one 
: relevant document. 

Miss Parker's mam sub- 
missions were that the statutory 
requirements of confid e ntiality 
tsee regulation 14(1) of. the 
Adoption Agency Regulations 
(SI 1983 No 1964)) placed the 
information available to the 
adoption society's officers and 
the records of that society in the 
category of information pro- 
tected by public interest immu- 
nity, and that there was an 
analogy between information 
provided by a putative father to 
an adoption agency and 
information given by such per- 
sons as informants of the police 
or informants of the Customs 
and Excise. 

His Lordship said that a 
natural father had much to gain 
financially if the burden of 
maintenance was lifted from his 
shoulders by adoption if that 
was the course contemplated, so 
that it could not be envisaged 
that such a person was dis- 
suaded from admitting par- 
entage to an adoption agency 
because he knew that if he 
changed his mind and turned 
dishonest what he was then 
saying might be used against 
him. Thus, there was no accept- 
able analogy between his po- 
sition and informants. 

On the question of public 
interest immunity, h was clear 
from D v National Society for 
the Prevention of Cruelty to 
Children (J1978J AC 171) that it 
could be raised otherwise than 
by and in a case involving the 
Government. 

The cases relied on by Miss 
Parker, such as In re D (Infants) 
(T1970J I WLR 599). Gaskin v 
Liverpool City Council ([ 1 980] 1 
WLR 1549) and Campbell v 
Tameside Metropolitan Bor- 
ough Council {[ 1982] QB 1065), 
were cases where the immunity 
point was taken on discovery by 
the local authorities and the 
NSPCC 

It might be that if an order for 
discovery of all the records 
relating to one case considered 
by the agency were sought it 
would be possible for the agency 
to claim immunity, but that was 
not the present case. 

Here, the evidence of the 
social worker and the single 
document he might produce 
were known to everyone, and 
the evidence would no doubt be 
given Miss Rodd at the hearing. 

There was no discernible 
public interest in the social 
worker's evidence being ex- 
cluded; on the contrary, if it was 
excluded a grave injustice might 
occur.

Mathematical formula 
is not apt in 
fixing work pattern 


Flack and Others v Kodak Ltd 
Before Sir John Donaldson, 
Master of the Rolls, Lord Justice 
Parker and Lord Justice Woolf 
[Judgment given May 22 J 

Where an employee had 
worked intermittently in an 
irregular pattern over a number 
of years, an industrial tribunal 
ought to have regard to all the 
circumstances over the whole 
period of employment in 
ascertaining, under paragraph 
9(IXh) of Schedule 13 to the 
Employment Protection 
(Consolidation) Act 1978, 
whether the breaks in the two 
years prior to dismissal were 
temporary. 

It was not correct amply to 
look at each break in relation to 
the adjoining periods of employ- 
ment or to apply a mathematical 
formula in determining whether 
there had been continuity of 
employment for the two-year 
period required by section 81 of 
the 1978 Acl 

The Court of Appeal so held, 
dismissing an appeal by the 
employers. Kodak Lid, from the 
decision of the Employment 
Appeal Tribunal (Mr Justice 
Peter Gibson, Mr R Robson 
and Miss A. P. Vale), who on 
July 30. 1985 (J1985) ICR 820) 
allowed an appeal by Jacqueline 
Flack and five other employees 
from the decision of the indus- 
trial tribunal on September 17, 
1984, that they were not eligible 
to redundancy payments be- 
cause they had not been 
continuously employed for two 
years. 

Mr Alexander Irvine. QC and 
Mr Michael Supperstone for the 
employers; Mr Patrick Elias for 
the employees. 

THE MASTER OF THE 
ROLLS, concurring with the 
judgments of Lord Justice 
; Woolf and Lord Justice Parker, ■ 
said that in reliance on the 
speech of Lord Diplock in Ford 
j v Warwickshire County Council 
{[1983] 2 AC 71. S3) the 
industrial tribunal had sought to 
determine whether each break 
in the employment of each 
employee during the two years 
prior to their dismissal could be 
“characterized as short rel- 
atively to the combined dura- 
tion or the two adjoining 
periods of employment. 

In so doing, they had ex- 
pressed the relationship be- 
tween each break and its 
adjoining periods of employ- 
ment as a percentage of the 
combined duration of those 
periods of employment. 

The trap into which the 
tribunal fell, as other courts had 
done before them, was to regard 
speeches in the House of Lords 
as having the force and purpose 
of statute (aw and to pay 
insufficient regard to the context 


of the appeal in which those 
speeches were delivered. 

Continuity of employment 
for the purposes of the 1 978 Act. 
with consequential rights to. 
redundancy payments and 
compensation for unfair dis- 
missal, was of considerable im- 
portance to employees. 

Actual continuity of employ- 
ment was often an unachievable 
goal due to sickness, injury, 
short-time working or tem- 
porary lay-offs. 

The Acl sought to extend the 
factual concept of continuity of 
employment to cover situations 
which might otherwise lead to a 
finding dial continuity had been 
broken. 

Under section 1 Si, the issue 
whether the intermittent peri- 
ods of employment were to be 
treated as forming a single 
period of continuous employ- 
ment fell to be determined in 
accordance with Schedule 13. 

From paragraph 9(1), which 
was crucial, two points emerged. 
First, the unit of employment 
was the week. 

It followed that the tribunal 
had erred in approaching the 
matter on the basis of days, 
rather than weeks. 

Second, what had to be 
considered was not a temporary 
absence from work caused by a 
cessation of work, but an ab- 
sence from work caused by a 
temporary cessation of work. 

The leading authority on 
paragraph 9 was not Ford's case, 
but Fitzgerald v Nall. Bussell tf 
Co Ltd ([1 970] AC 984). There, 
the House of Lords decided that 
the “work” referred to in para- 
graph 9 was that of the employee 
and not the employer, and that 
“temporary” necessarily in- 
volved questions of fact and 
degree. 

Ford’s case concerned a 
teacher employed on a long 
series of fixed-term contracts. 
The question whether the breaks 
in employment were temporary 
had not been in issue. 

The issue had been whether it 
mattered that those periods h*d 
been bounded by fixed-term 
contracts, and it had been held 
that it did noL 

The matter should be remit- 
ted lo the industrial tribunal for 
reconsideration in the light of 
their Lordships’ judgments and 
of the decision of the House of 
Lords in Fitzgerald's case rather 
than Ford's. 

The tribunal should bear in 

mind that while the only breaks 
in employment which were 
relevant to the issue of redun- 
dancy were those which oc- 
curred during the two years 
immediately prior to dismissal, 
the characterization of those 
breaks as temporary or other- 
wise might be affected by the 
whole history of the employ, 
ment.

RACING; MITCHELL’S HIGHLY-RATED COLT FOR NEWMARKET FOLLOW-UP 

Sylvan Express to speed in 


By Mandarin 

Philip Mitchell, that veisa- 
™ and enterprising trainer 
from Epsom, can capture an- 
other of Newmarket's main 
pnzes today, the Holsten Dial 
Pus Handicap, with bis attrac- 
tively-weighted Sylvan 
Express. 

After a promising pipe- 
opener in Sandown’s Esher 
Cup, Sylvan Express reap- 
peared at Newmarket on 
2,000 Guineas day and under 
the strong driving of the 
promising apprentice, Garv 
Carter, outpaced a competi- 
tive field for the seven-furlong 
Ladbrokes Handicap. 

The form of that race has 
worked out particularly well, 
with the runner-up. Fleet 
Form, going on to land the 
valuable Norwesi Holst Tro- 
phy at York, and the fourth 
and fifth placed horses. Native 
Oak and Wesham, also scor- 
ing since. 

Mitchell has gone on record 
as saying that Sylvan Express, 
who showed great improve- 
ment as a juvenile towards the 
end of last season with nursery 


victories at Ascot and New- 
market. is potentially the best 
horse he has trained. 

Certainly, his charge is still 
leniently handicapped, having 
been raised only 41b for the 
Newmarket success, and the 
one reservation is that the 
Baptism coll now tackles six 
furlongs against some sea- 
soned sprinters, such as Luna 
Bid and Roaring Riva. 

Those two rivals, however, 
have plenty of weight and a 
bigger danger to my selection 
lurks near the bottom of the 
handicap, the Lester Piggott- 
trained Latch String, who 
opened her account by catch- 
ingGlikiaa Mou in the last few 
strides at Thirsk. But Sylvan 
Express is napped to complete 
a double. 

Guy Harwood, so much in 
the news recently with his 
Derby permutations, runs 
Gerald Leigh's well-bred new- 
comer, Flashdance, a full sis- 
ter to Prince Hab by Habitat 
in the opening Holsten Diat 
Pils Maiden Stakes. However, 
slight preference is for the 
Michael Stoute-trained Find- 
ing. a well-grown Final Straw 


colt who has been catching 
the eye recently on the New- 
market gallops. 

No matter how Flashdance 
fares, Harwood is unlikely to 
leave the meeting empty- 
handed as El Coaqaistador, by 
Shirley Heights out of a half- 
aster to the Cesarewitch win- 
ner Mountain Lodge, is bred 
to relish every yard of the 1 %- 
mile Matthew Dawson Maid- 
en Slakes and this promising 
colt is expected to make a 
winning debut at the expense 
of Paul Cole's Actinium, who 
shaped well on his reappear- 
ance behind Rosedale at Bath 

Kempton's evening meeting 
serves up the most interesting 
contest of the day when Henry 
Cecil's pair. Faustus and 
Brave Owen, do battle against 
Michael Stoute's highly re- 
garded Truely Nureyev. Fao- 
stns gamely won Newbury's 
Greenham Stakes before fail- 
ing to get in a blow at Dancing 
Brave when eighth in the 
2.000 Guineas and may have a 
fitness edge over Truely Nure- 
’, who has to miss the first 


yev, 
colts’classic 
setback 


because of a 


Dolka makes her eagerly- 
awaited seasonal reappear- 
ance in the Venus Fillies"’ 
Stakes. She won plenty of 
admirers with her Newmarket 
victory last term and this 
daughter of Shergar, although 
slow in coming to hand tins 
spring, should make up for 
lost time at the expense of the 
Arundel filly. Argon Laser. 

After his excellent second to 
State Budget in the London 
Gold Cup at Newbury, Lord 
Derby's High Tension can 
outstay Pochard in the King- 
fisher Handicap, while at 
Thirsk the course winner, 
Creeager, looks an attractive 
proposition for the Bet With 
The Tote Handicap. 

Finally, Oliver Sherwood, 
the Upper Lam bo urn trainer, 
can end the National Hunt 
season, which concludes to- 
day, on a high note by 
claiming the final champion 
hunters' chase, the Horse and 
Hound Cup,with his progres- 
sive eigbt-year-old, 
Beamwam, despite the pres- 
ence of Eliogarty and Culm 
Port 




DoJfca, who won her only race at Newmarket last season, makes her delayed seasonal reap- 
pearance in this evening's Yen ns Fillies’ Stakes at Kempton

Naughty Niece can be queen at the Quorn 


On the penultimate Saturday 
of the poinMo- point season, the 
rearranged Quorn fixture and 
the Exmoor are taking place, 
both having attracted well over 
200 entries (Brian Bed writes). 

With Border Burg taken out at 
the overnight stage at Stratford 
Peter Grecnall. who has a lead of 
three over Mike Felton in the 
men's area riding championship 
after riding two winners at 
Hereford on Thursday evening. 


will not now need his helicopter 
to commute from the Quorn, 
where Cheekio Ora is his prin- 
cipal hope. John WrathaH. how- 
ever, has other ideas for this 
race, and Naughty Niece will be 
difficult to beau 
Felton has only one certain 
ride, on Thomascoun, at the 
Exmoor, but if he wins will 
probably partner Paddy Too. 
Unless he wins on both, and 
Greenall has a blank day. he is 


unlikely to go to the Torriogton 

Farmers next Saturday. 

At Stratford. Beam wan. pro- 
vided he stays the three miles 
two furlongs, has a good chance 
in the Horse and Hound Cup. 
Doreen Calder, however, will 
take a lot of beating on Flying 
Ace. last year’s winner, ana 
Chris Down deserves a change 
of fortune. 

TOGA VS FIXTURES: Exmoor, Bratton 
Dton (2J0): Quran. Garthorpe (2.15).

at Newmarket yesterday; “I

against Bakharoff with a run. 

Harwood's assistant. Geoff

SHOWJUMPING 

Experience 
tells in 
Whitaker’s 
victory 

By Jenny MacArthur 

Experience triumphed at 
Hickslead yesterday when the 
18- year-old Next Ryan’s Son, 
ridden, by John Whitaker, won 
the Everest Double Glazing 
Trophy and the 1 7-year -o!<l 
Owen Gregory, ridden by 
Whitaker's younger brother. Mi- 
chael. was second. John 
Whitaker is considering whether 
to jump Ryan’s Son rather than 
Mil too in tomorrow's Nations 
Cup, but the decision will be 
made by Ronnie Massarella. the 
team manager, who announces 
his team of four today. 

The Hickslead arena is a 
favourite stamping ground for 
both Ryan’s Son and Owen 
Gregory. The latter, owned by 
Mrs Raymond Fenwick, won 
the Jumping Derby in 1980. 
Ryan's Son. who has won more 
than £200,000 during his career, 
won the Jumping Derby in 
1983, having earlier in die year 
won ins nder the European 
individual silver medal in the 
same arena. 

Yesterday it looked as if it was 
going to be a dud between the 
two brothers until last year's 
winner. Emfie Hendrix, of The 
Netherlands, on Opticbeurs

GOLF: THREE-WAY TIE FOR THE LEAD AT MOOR PARK 

Baiocchi’s 
round 
smacks of 
class 

By Mitchell Platts 

*Tve never dreamed of win- 
ning a British Open," Hugh 
Baiocchi said. “If 1 was four 
shots ahead with one hole to 
play I would probably fell over 
and break a leg! You have to be 
realistic, you don't stumble into 
an Open . . . you have to win it 
from a guy like Seve 
Ballesteros.*’ 

Baioccfu*s surprisingly honest 
confession was delivered only a 
few minutes after he had joy- 
ously walked off the 18th green 
ai Moor Park yesterday after 
completing a flawless round of 
65 which contained five birdies 
and one eagle. 

It was a performance that 
smacked of class as be threaded 
hts way towards the p rospect of 
winning the London Standard 
Pour Stars National Pro-Celeb- 
rity tournament. Baiocchi has a 
halfway aggregate of 1 36, which 
is eight under par, and he is 
nicely placed to become the 
second South African to win on 
the European circuit this season 
after John Bland's success in the 
Cannes Open. 

Baiocchi has 16 professional 
victories to h is credit, six of 
them in Europe, but be has one

the West Indies during the 
winter and will play for 
Leicestershire in their Britannic

Hampshire have fitness 
doubts over Gordon Greenidge 
and Tim Tmnlett for their 
Britannic Assurance county 
championship match against 
Nottinghamshire at Southamp-

The Kent captain Chris 
Cowdrey Iras aggravated a ham- 
string injury and is doubtful for 
the game with Worcestershire at 
Tunbridge Wells. Simon Hinks 
and Richard Ellison, who have 
bade problems, are both ex- 
pected to be fit 

Derbyshire also have injury 
problems, which could rob them 
of three key bowlers against 
Essex at Derby. The former 
England all-rounder Geoff 
Miller has a side strain and the 
seam bowlers Paul Newman 
(back injury) and Alan Warner 
(sore shins) are both struggling. 


Stortford 
make a 
fine start 

By Michael Berry 

Bishops Stortford, losing 
finalists in the National Club 
Championship in 1984, made a 
successful start to this season's 
campaign on Thursday 

Stortford, weakened by the 
absence of key players, beat 
Colchester and East Essex by 25 
runs in a fixture that had been 
postponed four times because of 
the weather. Steve Plumb made 
55 and Adrian Wacey 78 not out 
towards their 192 for seven and 
Colchester replied with 167 for 
eight. 

Reading, last year’s losing 
finalists, also made a winning 
start to beat both Hayes and 
Wokingham and were playing 
Sloqgb in the third round 
yesterday. Already through to 
the fourth round are Scar- 
borough, another of the fended 
sides. They overcame Otfey by 
38 runs. Chris Hugill hitting 6S 
of their 217 for seven, Odey 
replying with f 79 for nine. 

In the National Village 
Championship, sponsored by 
Norsk Hydro, Frenchk, the 
holders, are on the march again 
after victories over Glendelviae, 
Yet holme and Morebattle and 
St Boswells. 

Troon are also through to foe 
group semi-finals, while in- 
dividual honours so fer in foe

Jeff Wcstganh of Clan Vale in

became only the fifth player in

Hard task for Pilgrims 

By George Chesterton 


Tomorrow sees the first 
round of the Cricketer Cup. 
Repton Pilgrims, runners-up in 
last year's competition, have a 
lough opening match at Harrow. 
Richard Hutton is available, but 
it is possible that Middlesex 
may need foe services of John 
Carr. If they go through, they 
could then meet Old 
Wykehamists, who were put out 
in the semi-final in 1985 by the 
OundeHians. Also in the top half 
of the draw are foe much- 
fended Felsted Robins, though 
it is doubtful whether tney mil 
be able to call on Derek Pringle. 

Shrewsbury Saracens must 
favour fodr chances: they have 
an excellent balance and cer- 


tainly one of the best all-round 
bowling attacks in foe com- 
petition. (Dandle Rovers, last 
year's winners, should be at full 
strength. Their out-cricket is 
outstanding,

ROWING 


BOWLS 


Permutations in 
hope of medals 


Bryant was down 
but never out 


By Jim Railton 


By Gordon Allan 


Great Britain's top fours will 
meet this weekend in the Not- 
tinghamshire Internationa} Re- 
gatta to decide who will be 
England's coxless four in the 
Commonwealth Games. The 
two fours are no less than Tyrian 
and the Amateur Rowing 
Association (.ARA) four. Three 
weeks ago in Tyrian 
defeated the West German 
world champions in the coxless 
fours while the ARA four 
walked away with the coxed four 
event. 

Now- in a search for medals in 
the Commonwealth Games, 
which will involve doubling and 
trebling up. the ARA four wish 
to go coxicss. They include in 
their crew three Olympic gold 
medal winners — Redgrave. 
Holmes and Cross. IfTyrian arc 


defeated over the weekend they 
will probably be offered the 
coxed four berth in the 
Commonwealth Games before 
reverting back to a coxless four 
for the world championships in 
Nottingham in August. It all 
sounds too complicated. 

The Nottinghamshire Inter- 
national provides the final trials 
for the Commonwealth Games 
teams before selection on June 
15. 

There promises to be many 
exciting races over the weekend. 
In the Commonwealth Games 
there is no lightweight eights 
event. The ARA national eight 
will split up into two fburs 
tomorrow Sunday and in a one- 
off race decide who will repre- 
sent England in the lightweight 
coxless fours. 


SUMMER EIGHTS

YACHTING 

Pageant of 
sail on 
the Solent 

By Barry Pkkthall 

A record 1335 yachts — 138 
more than last year — are 
expected to set oat Irani Cowes 
this morning on the fiftieth 
Round the Island race. The 
muhxbull class lend the fleet 
away on this 60-mile westabont 
course around the Isle of Wight 
at 6am and the ocher classes 
follow in hot pursuit at 10- 
minute intervals for an boor to 
form a spe ct acular parade of 
saiL 

If cooditioas prove favourable, 
the leading crews expert to he 
refurling their sails by Ham, bat 
others competing in the cruiser 
divisions have until 1130 to- 
night to complete the course. 

The record, set last year by 
Tony Bnllimore's 60ft trimaran. 

Apricot, stands at 4hr 4Smin i 
and this 60ft Irens design, which 
went on to win (be Round Britain 
and Round European races last 
season, returns to defend this 
title against Bullimore's prin- 
cipal molrifanll rivals. Mike 
Whipp's Paragon and Red Star, 
skippered by Don Wood. 

Until recently, the monohnll 
record was thought to have been 
held by Bill White ho use- Vanx's 
maxi. "Mistress Quickly, which 
set a time of Star 57min 15sec in 
the 1979 race, but after looking 
at the results of the first event in 
1936. Christopher MaimelL the 
Island Sailing Clnb's secretary, 
established that three yachts 
beat this time, led by Tom 
Ratsey's 40ft cutter, Dolly 
V anion, which completed the 
course six minutes foster. 

Interest in this year's race has 
been heightened by a £700 side 
bet wagered between the crews 
of four three-quarter loaners and 
the leading mnllihull skippers 
who believe that one of them at 
least can complete the course in 
half the time taken by their 
monobull rivals. The winnings 
have been promised to Sport 

AM. — 


David Bryant and Cecil 
Bransky. respectively winner 
and runner-op in the Gateway 
Masters singles last year, won 
their opening matches at Wor- 
thing yesterday. Bryant beat 
Wynne Richards 21-18 and 
Bransky beat Dan Milligan 21- 
13. 

Every scorecard tells a story 
and the one lor the Bryanl- 
Richards match was eloquent. 
Twice Bryant was seven shots 
down -at 5- 12 and 11-18— and 
twice be dragged himself back. 
He won (he last five ends with a 
scoring sequence of 2, 2. 2, 3. 1, 
varying the mat length suf- 
ficiently 10 upset Richards’ 
direction. 

Richards moved the jack 10 
one of Bryant's back bowls at 
18-11. Little miscalculations 
tike that can change the 
complexion of a game, and 
Bryant took foil advantage. 
Richards, the British Isles cham- 
pion. had reason to fed irked 
with himself. He bowled with 
fine confidence early on, scoring 


RUGBY UNION 


Top clubs call truce 


A truce has been called in the 
year-long dispute between 15 
top dubs and the Welsh Rugby 
Union. Merit table dubs had 
threatened to pull out of next 
season's Schweppes Cup be- 
cause of a row over rule changes, 
but the Welsh Rugby Union 
secretary. Ray Williams, yes- 
terday issued a statement 
The statement read: “The 
Welsh Rugby Union is pleased

Butterfly, the newest stroke in 
inurmalioiul swimming and in 
the Olympics only since 1956, 
demands flexibility and power. 
The lower body is used like a 
dolphin's tail with (he 
swimmer's legs dose together. 
The range and force of the kick 
depends greatly on the degree of 
loner back mobility. 

With (he buttocks well fixed 
in relation (o the surface of the 
water, the movement is a re- 
pealed hyper-extension — (be 


backward bending of the back — 
to lift the shoulders and arms 
dear of the water. But using a 
float prompts a whiplash action 
which cut damage the lower 
back if sufficiently prolonged. 

Professor Cameron says: 
“Our report suggests that swim- 
mers could keep the shoulders 
well befow- the water surface 
when using a float beard on all 
prone strokes and so help relieve 
excessive stress in the lumbar 
region." 

Philip Hobble, Britain's 
Olympic butterfly silver medal 
winner, who raptured a dec in 
his lower back from ns ing 
weights, says "If I do the 
dolphin action now it is painful. 
If anyone has a weakness in 
their lower back it would defi- 
nitely affect their stroke." 

Coaches stay on 

Newport rugby dob have 
reappointed Charlie Faulkner 
and Roy Duggan as coaches for 
a third successive season. Next 
season will be Fanlkner's fifth at 
Rodney Parade as chief coach 
and he is confident of buildup 
on last season’s success when 
Newport reached the Welsh Cap 
final for the first time since 
1978. Mike Watkins, booker, 
has been selected to continue as 
captain for a fourth season. 


Cowley ruled out of 
Games for England 


Annette Cowley, the South 
African swimmer, has had her 

hopes dashed of representing 
England in the Commonwealth 
Games in Edinburgh. Miss 
Cowley, aged 19, is competing 
in the national long-course 
championships and Gaines tri- 
als in Coventry. But David 
Reeves, the England secretary, 
admitted that the Amateur 
Swimming Association had 
made a mistake in telling Miss 
Cowley she would be able to 
compete for England. 

Miss Cowley, who is based at 
the University of Texas, has 
fallen foul of a Games residency 
rule which could also bar the 
South African-born athlete, 
Zola Budd. from the Games. 

Reeves confirmed her Games 
exclusion after consultation 
with Dick Palmer, general sec- 
retary to the Commonwealth 
Games Council for England. He 
said; “She does not answer the 
residential regulations — _ she 
'must live in England wr^six of 
the previous 12 months." Miss 
Cowley holds a British passport 
but does noi qualify because she - 
was not bora in Eng land, nor 
does she have a permanent 
home in this country. However, 
she is eligible to compete for

that form when the psychologi- 
cal pressure intensified — and 
bowls is nothing if not a 
psychological sport. 

The bearded and bespectacled 
Milligan, a teacher and 
greenkeeper from Ontario, who 
won the bronze medal in 1984. 
also faded away. It was 9-9 after 
13 ends. Then Bransky kpi 
ahead with a four and a two on 
consecutive ends and went to 21 
with a series of singles. 

Rob Parrella. who came first 
in the pairs event earlier in the 
week, lost 21-1 S to the man who 
came last. David Cutler. 

Cutler led most of the way but 
Parrella, mixing his customary 
proportion of firing shots with 
much admirable drawing, could 
be relied on to stay the course 
and give us a walchable contest.

Later in the afternoon, the 
first id two side-car races takes

Isag gone. 

There is already something of 
a pall era' the TT this year, 
after two fatal crashes in prac- 
tice. The latest victim was Alan 
Jervis, aged 38, a married man 
from Stoke on Trent, who died 
yesterday after the side car in 
which he was passenger swerved 
off the track dose to the start. 
Earlier in the week, a local solo 
rider, lan Ogden, was killed 

instantly. 

Practice has been at below lap 
record speeds, to spite of good 
cooditioas. Dunlop is only sec- 
ond fastest to a feDow Honda F-

Fastest of the week has been 
Roger Marshall in foe 500cc

Grimbsy, along with the Smnki 
rider, Trevor Nation, ran the

“Several meetings between

the three rule changes proposed. 
Those relating to an open draw

Miss Cdwley set the fastest

Reeves will recommend that her 
performance at the Hewlett-

Jan Molby arrived lo join 
ihc Danish squad preparing 
for ihe World Cup in Bogota 
and told Sepp Piomek. ihe 
Danish manager, that he was 
exhausted. A season of English 
industrial football had ex- 
pended his vitality. His frank 
admission is more sobering 
for England than it is even for 
the Danes. Vitality will help 
determine who wins these 
thirteenth World Cup finals 
which begin today against a 
background of thousands liv- 
ing in tents following last 
year's earthquake and hun- 
dreds of thousands in perma- 
nent squalor. 

Lineker. England's most po- 
tent scorer, can hardly expect 
to find the mercurial touch 
with which Rossi won the cup 
for Italy in Spain — and which 
has now deserted him — after 
the slog of a 60-match season. 
Were this the Olympics, any 
athlete would rate his chance's 
slim after such previous com- 
petitive demands. 

Value of Shilton 
will be immense 

England do, however, have 
an ace without equal in this 
field of 24 in Shilton, their 
goalkeeper. At 37. he is still 
worth a goal and possibly two 
against most other teams. His 
value is such that without him 
I doubt if England would 
progress past 'the second 
round. Even with him. an 
England team which has had 
doubts about too many posi- 
tions. will have to play unex- 
pectedly well to justify camp 
optimism. Without Bryan 
Robson, they have no other 
world-class player, although 
Hoddlc has exceptional skill 
as yet internationally unful- 
filled. Can Hoddle stand the 
heat, in every sense? 

Anyone wishing to place a 
bet should look for teams that 
are settled in selection and 
formation, have at least four 
players of outstanding skill

Maradona: If this exceptional player gets the protection from referees that he deserves then spectators at the World Cap finals will sorely benefit 


and intelligence, use economic 
possession football, and are 
not harassed by problems of 
temperament dr too intense 
national expectation. Italy, the 
holders, who start their de- 
fence today, fit only the 
second and third of these 
qualities at present, I suspect. 

Temperament is in fart 
probably England's next 
strongest ace after Shilton, 
while another could be the use 
of consistent high balls 
crossed to Haieley's head. 
This will unnerve any team. 
Should England do well, it will 
be because they are playing to 
a traditional pattern dissimi- 
lar to anyone else. There are 
probably seven or eight teams 
better at the possession game. 

The five teams who appear 


to have at least three of the 
four qualifications which I 
have listed are Uruguay. Den- 
mark. the European finalists 
France and Spain, and Argen- 
tina. Three others with the 
same kind of temperamental 
stability as England are the 
Soviet Union. Belgium and 
Bulgaria. These would be my 
somewhat bold prediction for 
the quarter-finals. No Italy. 
Brazil or England! It will, of 
course, suit England far better 
to come second in the first 
round, so as lo play the 
runners-up in Mexico's group, 
rather than win their group 
and face the runners-up of 
Uruguay’s and Denmark’s 
group. Should they qualify in 
third place they meet the 
winner of either the Spanish or 


French group. 

It seems that Italy, unsure of 
not merely Rossi but their 
whole fabric, will play for 
security and another of those 
drawn opening matches this 
morning. In spite of riots on 
the pitch, bribery and impris- 
onment in Bulgarian football 
two seasons ago, Ivan Vutzov, 
the Bulgarian manager who 
was a defender in the 1966 
final in England, has a side 
which might have the nerve to 
unhinge Italy just as Belgium 
did against Argentina in 1982. 
Bulgaria have beaten Den- 
mark and Uruguay in recent 
friendlies, and have prepared 
well, including acclimatiza- 
tion in Toluca in February. 

Adaptation to the climatic 
environment is the largely 


unknown factor affecting ev- 
eryone but the hosts. As 
previously suggested, Mexico 
will have colossal home ad- 
vantage. loo. and the pressure 
imposed by it on referees, but 
that pressure may rebound on 
the players just as it did on the 
Spanish four years ago. For 
the Europeans, the first round 
will soon show their physical 
condition. Northern Ireland's 
endurance work, for instance, 
may have been more valuable 
than Scotland's speed work in 
Santa Fe. The Irish could well 
qualify for the last 16. 

Inevitably, there has been 
unrest within some squads 
over financial wrangling. 
France are at it. the dressing 
room full of Gallic gestures 
before they went out and lost 


2-0 to the first division side 
Pumas on Wednesday; Portu- 
gal appear to have resolved 
their row. As usual, disharmo- 
ny exists between some man- 
agers and prominent players. 
Franz Beckenbauer is under 
fire by his men for saying last 
week that they cannot win the 
Cup: they grumbled, he re- 
tracted. But he has allegedly 
already made an appointment 
at home in Austria for the last 
week in June. Brazil are said 
by one of their most experi- 
enced officials to be in worse 
disarray than in any World 
Cup in memory. The ageing, 
injured Zico, talked into the 
squad by public demand, is 
apparently now trying to ad- 
vise Tele Santana whom to 
select. The first match on 


Zico an unlikely starter for Brazil 


Mexico (Agencies) - Zico. 
whose fitness is a matter of 
national importance to Brazil- 
ian football supporters, scored 
three goals in two practice 
games on Thursday, but the 
coach. Tele Santana, said he 
was unlikely to be in Brazil’s 
starting team against Spain 
tomorrow. 

Brazil scored comprehen- 
sive wins over two local sides 
and Zico, who is recovering 
from an injured left knee, said 
after playing for a total of 80 
minutes: “I am not tired and 
I'm ready for Spain." But 
Santana, who will name the 
side today, said Zico was not 
likely to stan the match. “Zico 
looked fine today but is still 
not 100 per cent fit” Santana 
said. 


Rafael Gordilto. Spain's 
captain, may miss the match. 
The Real Madrid midfield 
player has been confined to 
bed for the last two days with a 
stomach upset If he is ruled 
out Julio Albert of Barcelo- 
na. will step in. 

Tomorrow's other match is 
between France and Canada 
in Leon. 

Overcoming the scorching 
sun, the Soviet Union brought 
on their leading forward. 
Protasov, as they defeated a 
local team 12-1 on on Thurs- 
day in their second warm-up 
match in as many days in 
preparation for their opening 
match against Hungary on 
Monday. Protasov, who had 
been in bed for two da\s with 


a throat infection and fever, 
came on early in the second 
half but did not score. 

West Germany's last game 
before the finals turned into a 
gentle romp on Thursday 
when they beat a Queretaro 
youth side 12-1. The manager, 
Franz Beckenbauer, took the 
opportunity to give his entire 
squad match practice except 
for the captain. Karl-Heinz 
Rummenigge, who is still 
getting back to full fitness after 
a leg injury. 

West Germany play their 
opening game against Quere- 
taro on Wednesday against 
Uruguay, whose leading for- 
ward. Enzo Francescoli. 
scored a penalty on Thursday 
as Uruguay defeated the Mexi- 


can first division club, Toluca, 

1 - 0 . 

By turns angry and exasper- 
ated, Argentina's Diego 
Maradona said on Thursday 
he was “very well in the knee 
and in the head," despite 
Italian Press speculation that a 
specialist bad been sum- 
moned to attend to an old 
injury. 

The forward also com- 
plained about the FIFA presi- 
dent. Joao Havelange. who on 
Wednesday shrugged oft com- 
plaints from European and 
Latin American players about 
the noon kick-off scheduled 
for most of the 52 World Cup 
games, and about a Mexican 
newspaper for urging fans to 
favour South Korea in their 
match on Monday.

Selectors could face a dilemma 


Paul Downton may require 
the considerable influence of 
David Gower, his captain, to 
keep him in the England side 
for next week's firsi Cornhill 
Test against India at Lord's. 
The selectors could make a 
change after remaining loyal 
to the Middlesex wicketkeeper 
for the last 22 consecutive 
Tests spanning four series, 
two at home and those io India 
and the West Indies. 


McGuigan 
faces Cruz 

Barry McGuigan will meet 
Sieve Cruz, of the United 
States, in defence of his World 
Boxing .Association feather- 
weight title in Las Vegas on 
June 23. 

Cruz, the 1981 Golden 
Gloves ehampion who has a 
professional record of 15 
knockouts in 26 contests, 
replaces Fernando Sosa, who 
has undergone an eye opera- 
tion in Buenos Aires. The 
Argentinian's second with- 
drawal from a title bout has 
forced Barney Eastwood. Mc- 
Guigan's manager, to sign four 
new- spamng partners. 

Squad extras 

The Wigan halfback. Shaun 
Edwards, and the forward. 
Shaun Wane, have been added 
to the Great Britain Rugby 
League players preparing for 
next season's visit by- 
Australia. 

Sponsorship 

General Motors and 
Vauxhail have teamed up to 
sponsor football’s ‘‘fifth 
division" — the Alliance Pre- 
mier - for £500.000 over the 
next two seasons. 


Downton has invariably 
been able to rely on Gower's 
support at the selectorial 
meetings, but the emergence of 
Steven Rhodes, of Worcester- 
shire; Bruce French, of Not- 
tinghamshire. and Jack 
Richards, of Surrey, could 
threaten his position. 

His handling in the two 
recent Texaco Trophy match- 
es was not of top international 
standard and his batting has

just one half century in an

It is possible that Peter May

ATHLETICS 


Russians fail to turn 
up for big meeting 

From Pat Butcher, Athletics Correspondent 
San Jose, California 


The Mobil grand prix circuit 
begins here today with a meta- 
phoric cloud hanging over the 
sun-kissed, celebrated sky-blue 
track at San Jose City College. It 
is another type of invisible cloud 
from the Soviet Union which is 
causing the consternation. In- 
visible. because the seven top 
Soviet athletes who were an- 
nounced for this meeting with 
such acclaim have failed lo turn 
up. 

All that the organizers have 
gleaned from Soviet sources so 
tar is that there was trouble 
getting visas in Moscow, 
whether from the Soviet or 
American authorities nobody 
knows. But it is a great dis- 
appointment especially since 
Cable News Network, who are 
organizing the Goodwill Games, 
the US-Soviet “thrash” in Mos- 
cow in August had put up extra 
TV money to bring the athletes 
here. 

Ben Bonnaoo, the organizer, 
summed it up with some an- 
guish yesterday when he said. 
“We put the best damned meet 
together we've ever had. and 
this happens.” He should not be 
too upset. The rest of the entry is 
as breathtaking as the meeting's 
name. Bruce Jenner’s Bud Light 
Classic. 

Despite losing to Harvey 
Glance in a wind-assisted 
1 0.08 see to I0.l4sec in Modesto 
two weeks ago. Cari Lewis is 
confident enough of his form to 
double at 1 00 and 200 metres, 
the first lime he has run the 
longer distance since the Olym- 
pic season in 1984. 

Glance runs again in the 100 
metres this afternoon, as do 
Calvin Smith, the world record 
holder, and Kirk Baptiste. 
Lewis's training partner and 
runner-up to Ttim in the Olym- 
pic 200 metres, but best known 
in Britain for his 300 metre 
victory over Lewis at Crystal 
Palace immediately after the 
Games. 

But the match everyone is 
looking forward to in the 100 


metres is Ben Johnson against 
Lewis. The Jamaica n-bom Ca- 
nadian was missed at the end of 
the last season when the Ameri- 
can magazine Track and Field 
News ranked him the season's 
second to Lewis. For Johnson 
had beaten die Olympic cham- 
pion in Zurich, lost to him in 
Cologne, and then when Lewis 
pulled out of the World Cup in 
Canberra, Johnson ran the sixth 
fastest lime ever, 10.00 seconds 
into a headwind, to establish 
himself as the long-range 
favourite for the Common- 
wealth Games short sprint. The 
interest in the 200 metres, a pan 
from Lewis and Baptiste, again 
will be the running of young- 
siers. Joe De Loach and another 
Canadian. Ailee Mahom. 

Eamonn Coghlan was one of 
the first athletes to arrive from 
his base in New York. Coghlan 
has not raced since his winning 
10.000-metres debul at the Penn 
Relays a month ago. The irish- 
man maintains that he is on 
better form for the 5.000 metres 
than in 1983. when be won the 
inaugural work) title, and the 
match between himself and the 
grand pnx winner. Doug Padi- 
lla, over 3.000 metres today 
should be a cracker. 

Willie Banks. Mike Conley 
and Charlie Simpkins lead a 
tremendous triple jump field in 
the chase towards 18 metres and 
there should be a similar dose 
dispute in the S00 metres be- 
tween Johnny Grey. Earl Jones. 
John MarshalL and the Ke- 
nyans, Edwin Koech and 
Sammy Koskei. 

Despite the recess in the oil 
industry, the sponsors have 
increased prize money by 50 per 
cent to $763,000 (about 
£510.000; for ihc 16 meetings 
this season. Bui the perennial 
fear of dope-testing by the 
“heavy" event athletes means 
that the hammer and shot put 
may not gel the subscribed 
number of athletes, even though 
il is now only four in the world's 
top fifty.

England 


Sunday is everything to Brazil. 
If they can beat Spain, they 
may bit by bit develop into a 
team, which they are not at the 
moment, around such talent 
as Casagrande, Muller and 
Silas, their young men. I think 
Spain will beat them with a 
team lhat has improved since 
losing the 19S4 European 
Championship final. 

My money, or what is left of 
it after Mexican telecommuni- 
cations have taken their toll 
remains on Uruguay, com- 
pacu skilful and tactically 
disciplined. Whether they are 
temperamentally disciplined 
remains to be seen. It could be 
a fiery last match in the group 
with Scotland. Alex 
Ferguson's apparent move to- 
wards Archibald, .a last- 
minute inclusion in the squad 
as replacement for Dalglish, as 
the attacking partner for Nich- 
olas may have dismayed Scot- 
tish supporters, who dislike 
Archibald, but it will have 
improved Scotland's slim 
prospects. The Scots have not 
seen him at his best with 
Barcelona. I expect Denmark, 
however, to go through and 
become eventual runners-up: 
if they do not flag as they did 
in the European final. Molby. 
never mind his self-expressed 
fatigue, is thought to be likely 
to be on the bench because 
there is no room for both him 
and Lerby from Bayern Mu- 

Defences tend to 
disintegrate 

nich in the central midfield. 
That tells you something 
about Denmark's depth. 

The World Cup is, inevitably, 
about winning, yet football 
should be, essentially, about 
glory: about gambling and 
taking chances and risking all. 
Because of the altitude and 
heat, defences in Mexican 
conditions, as was demon- 
strated in 1970. tend to disin- 
tegrate after about 70 minutes, 
creating open football. Let us 
hope lhat over the next month 
Francescoli, Laudrup, Platini. 
Bulragueno, Sanchez, 
Valdano, Maradona, Lineker, 
Gomez, Nicholas, VoJJer, 
Muller and the rest give us 
some a glorious moments. 

In the past, those teams who 
were in a class of their own 
have often failed: Hungary in 
1954 and 1966, The Nether- 
lands in 1974 and 1978.

From Stuart Jones 

Football Correspondent 

Monterrey 

Bobby Robson is on the 
verge of making one of the 
important decisions °f 
his career as England s roan 
ager. Tomorrow evening he is 
to state whether his 
and most influential player. 
Brvan Robson, will pla> in th ® 
opening World Cup tie Here 
against Portugal -ays 
later. 

The question has dominated 
each of the dally conferences 
that have been held since nss 
namesake damaged hus ham- 
string in Colorado Springs 
some three weeks ago. Oprt- 
miem has risen slowly ana 
gradually but the _eu.er 
Robson's latest estimation is 
that the younger is no more 
than 60 per cent fit. 

**He is not np to full training 
yet,” he said yesterday. “His 
technique is rusty, so we pul 
him in with the other players, 
but be stayed out of harm s 
way. He is improving all the 
time bat be has got to be doing 
more to expect to play jn a 
touch World Cop match.” 

If Bryan Robson does prove 
to be fit enough, the benefit of 
seeing his name on the ream 
sheets would be as highly 
encouraging for England as it 
would be deeply discouraging 
for the Portuguese. He is a 
gjant of the modern game- 

Yet inevitably, there is a 
potential danger that either 
his troubled Achilles tendon or 
his weakened shoulder could 
give way again. Should the two 
Robsons take a gamble and 
pick him for the first game, 
which is psychologically so 
crucial, and risk losing hint for 
the less significant tie against 
Morocco? 

It would be worth it if be 
could survive for an hour 
against the Portuguese (it 
would be unrealistic to expect 
him to be able to go the 
distance). If England win. he 
could then be rested until Jane 
1 1, by which date qualification 
for the next round might 
already have been assured. 

Lineker also trained with a 
fibreglass cast that was as 
strong as a concrete pillar 
around his wrist. “He needs 
protection," Bobby Robson 
said, “but, if be wears that the 
other players will need pro- 
tecting. Well have to modify 
it, bat he is now 85 per cent 
certain to be available Tor 
selection." 

Although Anderson, Bailey. 
Barnes, and Steven missed the 
most lighthearted session so 
far through injury, all of them 
should have recovered in time, 
bat one of them will be 
included in the starting line- 
up. England's main fear is that 
the sun will be horning at its 
hottest on Tuesday afternoon. 
They are hardly prepared for 
that 

For several days, h has been 
biding behind an endless blan- 
ket of grey clouds and the 
occasional burst of torrential 
rain. The weather, in other 
words, is more like an English 
summer titan the predicted 
Mexican heatwave, it is still 
humid enough for the squad 
members to lose between four 
and six pounds in 90 minutes. 

Ferguson 
is ready 
for battle 

Los Angeles (PA) - Alex 
Ferguson sounded Scotland's 
battle cry yesterday as his 
sqtnd prepared for their last 
serious action before the 
World Cnp finals get under 
way. The Scotland manager 
looked ahead to the games 
against Denmark, West Ger- 
many and Uruguay and said: 
“Anyone who underestimates 
ns is m ak ing a serious 
mistake." 

As Ferguson began to im- 
pose a more disciplined regime 
on his squad in Los Angeles, 
after the relaxed build-ap in 
Santa Fe, he said: “I aJll 
convinced that we will not be 
oat of place in our group in 
Mexico, no matter bow tomtit 
it is. 

“I believe we are not far 
away from getting ft riehL I 
am convinced that we are 
three-quarters of the way 
there. The mental side fe first 
class, the physical side is 
excellent and the attitude of 
the players towards the World 
Cop challenge is magnificent. 

I he only unknown factor is the 
tactical side."
