TUESDAY NOVEMBER 18 1986 


N 



By Philip Webster, Chief Political Correspondent 

Conservative MPs yes- private member's Bills in the 
leraay launched a new initia- present session. 

The aim was to encourage 


tive to reform the laws on 
Sunday trading, only seven 
months after the Government 
suffered its most stunning 
defeat of die present Par- 
liament on its own attempt to 
abolish restrictions. 

At the same time it emerged 
that Mr Douglas Hurd, the 
Home Secretary, would wel- 
come a move inspired from 
the Conservative back 
benches to make the licensing 
laws more flexible. 

More than 100 MPs, includ- 
ing some of the most senior 
backbenchers and former 
ministers, backed a Commons 
motion calling for the shops 
law to be amended to allow 
premises connected with lei- 
sure activities, such as do-it- 
yourself shops and garden 
centres, to open on Sundays. 

The signatories included at 
least six MPs who voted last 
April against the Shops Bill, 
contributing to the large 
backbench revolt which re- 
sulted in the loss of a central 
piece of government 
legislation. 

Yesterday’s large 
demonstration of support for 
the principle of reform was 
limed to coincide with the 
ballot on Thursday among 
MPs for the right to introduce

near the top of the ballot to 
introduce a Bill along the lines 
of the Commons motion.

nity to introduce a Bill 



ft * * * * * 


Sir Marcos Fox: Aiming for 
sense in Sunday shopping. 

bringing in more flexible 
licensing laws, along Scottish 
lines, mean that two of the 
most controversial issues 
among Conservative MPs 
could be bade on the agenda 
for what coukl be the last 
session before the general 
election. 

Mr Hurd is in favour in any 
case of including a pledge on 
licensing in the next election 
manifesto, but be will not 
stand in the way of any private 
attempt to make the change 
beforehand. 

But ministers are anxious 
dial in any backbench move 
due sensitivity would have to 
be shown on the issues of 
alcobol and health and alcohol 
and crime. 

Crucial to the Uketihood of 
a Sunday trading Bill succeed- 
ing would be the attitude of 
the Government. Because of 


the procedural opportunities 
for opponents, private 
members' legislation has little 
chance of reaching' the statute- 
book unless the Government 
makes parliamentary time 
available for iL 
Having been so humiliat- 
ingly rebuffed last April min- 
isters have no intention of 
rapidly embracing a new mea- 
sure by "laking dear in ad- 
vance that it would allow 
time, it was made dear yes- 
terday. But it will not attempt 
to block any measure. 

The Government remains 
in favour of deregulation 
The aims of the sponsors, 
led by Sir Marcus Fox, MP for 
Shipley, is to create as wide a 
consensus as possible around 
the limited reform. 

If they succeed in showing 
that there is a clear par- 
liamentary majority for the 
reform they hope that the 
Government might be en- 
couraged to stop in and help 
out over granting time. 

The motion's sponsors are 
confident that a majority will 
be forthcoming for a Bill. 

It is pouted out that the 
Shops Bill failed only because 
about 20 MPs who had orig- 
inally indicated that they fa- 
voured legislation changed 
their minds when h came to 
the crunch. 

By limiting the reform to 
leisure activities and not high 
street shopping, Sir Marcus 
and his colleagues believe they 
can win a much wider mea- 
sure of support 
Sir Marcus said yesterday: 
“In retrospect it may have 
been a mistake to go for 
complete deregulation. 

"There were legitimate fears 
about the big shops in the high 
street opening. Our motion is 
the first step in a move to 
bring some sense into a cha- 
otic situation." 


Aids fear leads to 
sperm destruction 

By Thomson Prentice, Science Correspondent 
Clinics treating infertile contaminated needles. Two of 


couples in Scotland have de- 
stroyed their stocks of donated 
spenn because of the risk of 
Aids contamination. 

Government guidelines 
were issued to fertility clinics 
last July. Strict screening 
precautions are now imposed 
on male donors. 

The guidelines were distrib- 
uted after frozen sperm sam- 
ples in Australia were found to 
contain traces of Aids virus 
infection earlier this year. 

Four Scottish ctinics have 
slopped the . artificial in- 
semination of infertile women 
with donor sperm and de- 
stroyed stocks that pre-date 
the government advice. 

The clinics, in Edinburgh, 
Glasgow, Aberdeen and Inver- 
ness, wUl not use donated 
sperm until next February, by 
which time all samples will 
have been screened. 

Twenty-nine babies in 
Edinburgh and Dundee have 
been born with the Aids virus. 
They were infected in the 
womb because their parents 
were heroin addicts using 


the babies have developed 
Aids. 

A woman has developed 
Aids after receiving an in- 
fected kidney in a transplant 
operation two years ago. 

Mrs Susan Minns, aged 32, 
of Fleetwood, Lancashire, is 
being treated for complica- 
tions of the disease at 
Withington Hospital, Man- 
chester. Her condition is 
“satisfactory". 

The Conservative Family 
Campaign claims today, in a 
letter to Lord Whitdaw, that 
the Government’s campaign 
on Aids is a waste of money, 
saying that it should be made a 
notifiable disease, and testing 
of the whole population 
should be undertaken, “vol- 
untarily in the first instance.” 

A British man who was 
deported from Sri Lanka be- 
cause be is seriously 31 with 
Aids arrived in London 
yesterday. 

Mr Richard Savory, aged 
37, travelled from Colombo in 
a partitioned area of a sched- 
uled BA flight.

Unnamed 
MI5 man 
called in 
spy case 

By Michael Evans 

Whitehall Correspondent 

Agents of M15, both past 
and present, have been flown 
to Australia by the Govern- 
ment to take part in the court 
case over the book written by 
Mr Peter Wright, the former 
senior officer of the Security 
Service. 

One of them, who worked 
for M15 at the same time as 
Mr Wright, is to be called to 
give evidence, but the court- 
has already agreed that he 
must remain unidentified. : 
Other M15 men are keeping in 
the background as pan of the 
advisory team attached to Sir 
Robert Armstrong, the Cabi- 
net Secretary. 

Mr Wright, who became 
ML^s chief mole-hunter dur- 
ing the latter part of bis 15- 
year career with the Security 
Service, is now a household 
name. His book, which the 
Government is trying to sup- 
press on the grounds that it 
would breach the rules of 
confidentiality covering all 
members of MI5. is all about 
naming names. 

His former colleagues will 
provide proof to the court in 
New South Wales that Mr 
Wright was given the same 
written instructions as all 
other recruits to the Security 
Service concerning the need 
for secrecy at all times. 

The ex-MI5 officer has filed 
an affidavit and will be called 
later to be cross examined on 
the written statement One 
Whitehall source said yes- 
terday : “The court is satisfied 
that he is a bona fide past- 
member of the Security Ser- 
vice, and he will be in a 
position to give details on the 
nature of the contract signed 
by everyone who joins M15 
and the other intelligence 
services.” . .

US Insider-trading 
scandal shakes 
City and Wall St 

By Bailey Morris in Washington and Richard Lander 


Alliance picks ad man 


The SDP/Liberal Alliance 
yesterday acquired a new im- 
age-builder. Mr David Abbott, 
p pfA 48, chairman of Abbott, 
Mead & Vickers, a West End 
advertising agency with 
billings of between £75,000m 
and £ 80,000m a year. 

Us clients include 
Salis bury's. British Caledo- 
nian and Smiths Crisps. 


Mr Abbott said yesterday 
that he was approached by the 
Alliance leadership on the 
basis of past links and per- 
sonal recommendation. It was 
bis job to get the message 
heard, “to make £1 do the 
work of £2". 

He wifi be involved in all 
aspects of party publicity.

Renault chief 
shot dead 

Paris (Reuter) - A man and 
a woman on a motorcycle shot 
dead the president of the 
French Renault car company 
last night, an Interior Ministry 
official said. 

The attack on M Georges 
Besse took place in a Mont- 
parnasse street at 7.25pm. 


The aftershocks of the mas- 
sive US insider-trading scan- 
dal — involving Mr Ivan 
Boesky, the investor fined 
$100 million (about £67 mil- 
lion) by the American finan- 
cial authorities on Friday — 
were quickly felt yesterday in 
the financial communities on 
both sides of the Atlantic. 

In New York, at least 12 
subpoenas were served on 
\Vali Sw! traders in an 
atwrapi »jy the Securities anti 
Exchange CommissicD (SEC) 
to dig out detailed informa- 
tion on Mr Boesky’s relation- 
ship with Drexd. Burnham 
Lambert, the investment 
bank. 

Mr Boesky’s downfall came 
when the SEC was told of his 
insider-trading activities by 
Mr Dennis Levine, a former 
Drexel managing director who 
was arrested on similar 
charges earlier this year. 

Mr Boesky and Drexel were 
two of the biggest and most 
controversial players in 
“merger-mania”, which has 
swept Wall Street in recent 
years. Mr Boesky was renown 
for the way he bought vital 
stakes in companies at the 
centre of takeover battles, and 
Drexel for the manner in 


which it financed daring bids 
by companies often far small- 
er than their targets. 

Among those who received 
subpoenas, according to Wall 
Street sources, were Mr Mi- 
chael Milken, who pioneered 
the use of high-yielding “junk 
bonds" at Drexd. and Mr Carl 
Icahn, a corporate raider 
whose reputation in takeover 
battles almost matched that of 
Mr Boesky. 

In London, the shares in Mr 
Boesky's British investment 
trust, Cambrian and General 
Securities, were suspended 
from trading as its directors 
assessed the effects of Friday's 
ruling on the company. 

Mr Boesky has already re- 
signed as chairman of Cam- 
brian, which invested most of 
its funds in the US. while his 
£32 million of shares in the 
company are in the control of 
an American court and will be 
used to pay his record fine. 

Although Mr Boesky had a 
relatively low profile here, the 
coincidence of his downfall 
with Britain’s own insider- 
trading scandal involving Mr 
Geoffrey Collier of Morgan

Baker to 
insist on 
teacher 
rewards 

By Nicholas Wood 

Political Reporter 

Mr Kenneth Baker yes- 
terday sought to pul pressure 
on the teachers’ unions to 
accept a more hierarchical pay 
Structure as the poker game 
between the Government and 
the education service entered 
a last crucial phase. 

Teachers' leaders and their 
local authority employers 
meet again tomorrow to put 
the finishing touches to the 
draft agreement reached early 
on Saturday morning at the 
conciliation service Acas. It is 
expected to be ratified on 
Friday by, at the very least, a 
majority of the unions. 

Yesterday in the Com- 
mons. Mr Baker walked a 
tightrope between caving into 



Parliament 


the unions and the Labour-led 
council employers and impos- 
ing his own package. 

His statement in reply to a 
question from Mr Giles 
Radice, the Labour education 
spokesman, began as a hold- 
ing operation, saying that he 
was “considering" the draft 
text pending the outcome oi 
the resumed talks. 

But he then gave notice to 
the two sides in the long- 
running dispute that they will 
have to shift their ground 
before he can recommend the 
deal to Cabinet. 

“Some progress has been 
made but there are major 
points of concern, first on the 
cost and particularly over the 
shape of the pay structure." 

He returned to this point 
several times, saying it was 
“absolutely central" to have a 
pay structure that would re- 
ward the “good classroom

By Our Foreign Staff 

South Korea put its police 
on foil alert yesterday as it 
maintained that President 
Kim II Sung, North Korea's 
leader for nearly 40 years, had 
been shot dead while travel- 


Diplomats interpreted an 
earlier report that Mr 
Balmonh had left Ulan Bator 
for a visit “at the invitation 
of . . . Kim 11 Sung" as a sign 
from Moscow that the North 
Korean leader was alive de- 
spite reports he had been 
murdered. The later Tass 
report said only that Mr 
Balmonh had arrived in the 
port of Vladivostok 
In Washington, the White 
House spokesman, Mr Larry 
Speak es. said that US officials 
had received “some reports" 
about a power struggle in 
North Korea.

Prison officers may act 
on incitement’ char 


V 


Bv Peter Evans, Home Affairs Correspondent 


The Prison Officers’ Associ- 
ation is considering taking 
legal a:i : cn over allegations 
tnat some prison officers in- 
cited inmates to lake pari in 
Britain’s worst ever jail riots 
last spring. 

The accusation comes from 
prisoners cited in the first 
independent report on the 
disturbances, published yes- 
terday by the Prison Reform 
Trust Dr Stephen Shaw, its 
director, said that shamefully, 
a few rogue prison officers 
condoned and incited the 
riots. 

Mr David Evans, the 
association's general sec- 
retary, said yesterday: “We are 
consulting our lawyers.” 

He added: “We find it 
inconceivable that any officer 
would instigate actions which 
would place themselves, their 
colleagues and their families 


in danger. We amply do not 
accept i: was possible for any 
officer tc :neiie pr^vne-v :c 
riot." 

The prisoners themselves 
said the causes for the distur- 
bances were there months 
before the riots. Mr Evans 
said. 

Dr Shaw said: “An ex- 
tremely grave accusation 
about the role of certain 
prison officers in inciting the 
riots has been made by five of 
the six prisoners we spoke to." 

Fires, riots, disturbances 
and violence broke out with a 
derision by prison officers to 
begin sanctions over manning 
levels. Twenty-two jails and 
detention centres were hit on 
April 30. 

Both Dr Shaw and Mr 
Evans agree that there is a 
threat of more riots.

talks offer 


From Eduardo Cue 
Buenos Aires 

The Argentine Government 
called on Britain yesterday to 
agree to global negotiations 
over the Falklands and said it 
might eventually declare an 
end to the state of hostilities. 

In a statement it said it was 
willing to resolve through 
negotiations “all the problems 
that exist between the two 
parties in addition to the 
dispute over sovereignty." . 

These would include dip- 
lomatic, consular and 
commercial relations. 

The Argentine initiative 
was carefully timed to co- 
incide with yesterday’s meet- 
ing at the White House 
between President Alfonsin 
and President Reagan. 


BBC in new row over 



From Christopher Walker, Moscow 

ment given to the Embassy’s 
work, pressure is growing 
inside the Foreign Office for 
any similar access to be denied 
to the BBC in future films it 
may seek to make about 
embassies abroad. 


The BBC is at the centre ofa 
new controversy as the result 
of a documentary about the 
lives of British diplomats and 
journalists based in Moscow, 
which is thought by senior 
figures in the Foreign Office to 
have deliberately shown the 
work of the British Embassy m 
an unfavourable light 

British sources told The 
Times yesterday that the Brit- 
ish Ambassador. Sir Bryan 
Cartledge, planned to write a 
personal letter to tire BBC 
complaining about the film. 
Caviar and Cornflakes* and its 
director, Mr Richard Denton, 
who was given unusually, wide 
access to Embassy facilities as 
part of an arrangement 
reached before filming began 
last May. 

Because of the anger among 
many diplomats at the mai- 


lt is understood that the 
Ambassador and leading 
members of the Embassy staff 
are unhappy about what they 
consider to have been the 
failure of the BBC 1 docu- 
mentary to show a fair picture 
of foe Embassy’s work. Some 
diplomats have complained 
privately that Mr Demon, 
formerly producer of the series 
Comrades , had deliberately 
set out to denigrate them. 

During the filming, which 
lasted for almost a month, 
members of the BBC team, 
including Mr Denton, com- 
plained to British journalists 



Mr Richard Denton: The 
producer under fire. 

who were also taking part, that 
despite foe agreement with the 
Foreign Office, much of the 
Embassy routine was out o» 
reach of foe cameras for 
“security reasons". 

The film received mixed 
reviews when it was screened 

V 


at the end of last month, with 
some British papers contend- 
ing that it reflected poorly on 
the Embassy . 

Much of foe footage con- 
centrated on emphasizing the 
remoteness of the life lived by 
diplomats from that of or- 
dinary Soviet citizens, and 
much emphasis was laid on a 
petty squabble with journal- 
ists over Press passes to 
accompany a British delega- 
tion into foe Kremlin. 

The film has been dogged by 
controversy from foe outset 
When Mr Demon first arrived 
in Moscow, where he has a 
Soviet wife, he was unable to 
begin shooting immediately. 
His original camera crew re- 
fused to fly to foe Soviet 
Union because of what they 
claimed were dangers posed 
by foe Chernobyl nuclear 
disaster. A substitute crew was 
eventually found. 


IS 

the crown 


From Alan Hamilton 
Riyadh 

Rather a lot of Saudi Arabia 
seemed to be abroad yesterday 
when foe Prince and Princess 
of Wales flew into foe capital. 
Riyadh, on the last stage of 
their Middle Eastern tour. But 
was foe key man of foe 
moment in Switzerland or the 
Canary Islands? 

Crown Prince Abdullah, the 
most senior member of foe 
ruling Al-Saud family next lo 
King Fabd. who was to have 
been foe royal couple's official 
host had already made it 
known foal he had to leave for 
medical treatment in Europe. 
But according to foe Spanish 
news agency EFE, the crown 
prince arrived in foe Canary 
Islands on Friday and was still 
there yesterday. However, his 
son. Prince Moulaib. said in 
Riyadh yesterday that he had 
spoken to his father in Geneva 
that morning. 

But that was nor all: one of 
his sons. Prince Faisal, whose 
horse won the Prince and 
Princess of Wales Cup at 
Riyadh racecourse yesterday 
afternoon, also foiled to 
appear to receive his trophy 
from the Princess. 

Instead, the gold trophy was 
accepted by another of the 
Crown Prince's sons. Prince 
Muiaib- who told reporters 
that his father was “very - sorry 
10 be absent, but it was 
essential that he went for a 
medical check-up in Switzer- 
land, which had to be done on 
time”. When asked why the 
correct son was not at the 
racecourse, a spokesman for 
the Saudi royal protocol 
depanment shrugged his 
shoulders. “Perhaps he is 
abroad," he said.

Fatstock Young ‘are 



injunction 
is lifted 

A High Court judge, in 
Birmingham, has dismissed 
an attempt by nine members 
of the Association of British 1 
Abattoir Companies to outlaw 
strikes planned by 630 govern- 
ment fatstock officers. 

Mr Justice Henry, giving a 
reserved judgement yesterday, 
after a four-day heariag in 
chambers in London, recently, 
discharged an injunction 
which had been granted 
against the men's union, the 
Institution of Professional 
Civil Servants. 

The fatstock officers, who

union then held a ballot in 
which 77 per cent voted in 
favour of further strikes. 

The companies said that 
their livelihood would be dis-

The inspectors said that if 
their right to strike after a

he did not consider there was a

The Ministry of Defence 
has been asked to supply 
information to a "no-holds- 
bamxT select committee in- 
vestigation into the Aids 
crisis. 

MPs will want to know the 
extent of the disease among 
servicemen and what steps the 
minis try is taking to counter 
its spread. 

Apart from a large number 
of hospitals, health authori- 
ties, leading doctors and char- 
itable Aids organizations, the 
social services committee has 


also asked for evidence by 
December 15 from bodies 
likely to have to take tough 
policy decisions on how to 
deal with Aids victims and 
carriers. 

They include: 

• The Association of British 
Insurers, some of whose mem- 
bers are considering refusing 
mortgage insurance to young 
men dying to buy a home 
together in case they are 
homosexual and high-risk. 

• The Home Office, which 
faces the possibility of Aids 
spreading rapidly in prisons. 

• The National Council for

catastrophe

running 

drugs’ 

Young people are being 
used as runners between drug 
dealers and street customers, 
according to a report by the 
Chief Constable of Avon and 
Somerset Police. 

Mr Ronald Broome adds, in 
the report on the policing of 
the St Paul's area of Bristol, 
that the young people are also . 
used as look-outs against pol- 
ice, and that the practice is 
increasing drug dealers’ im- 
munity. 

He says that criminals are 
trying to turn St Paul's into a 
no-go area. 

He says that crime levels in 
the district had dropped, but 
adds: “The prospects for 
spontaneous serious public 
disorder in the inner city area, 
particularly in St Paul’s, re- 
mains high." 

Kuomba Balogun, a black 
leader of the St Paul's Associ- 
ation, said yesterday that it 
was wrong to blame black 
youths for the inner city 
troubles. The cause was not a 
lawless element but “preva- 
lent social problems". 

Mr Malcolm Popperwell, 
the assistant chief constable 
who suffered a heart attack 
after leading 600 police 
against rioters, was bade on 
duty yesterday. 


A “catastrophic" gearbox 
failure was responsible for the 
Chinook helicopter crash off 
the Sbetiands earlier this 
month in which 45 people 
were killed, it was disclosed 
last night. 

An interim report by the 
Department of Transport's 
accident investigation branch 
into Britain's worst helicopter 
disaster also disclosed that 
evidence of metal fatigue had 
been found in other Boeing 
234 helicopters which could 
potentially lead to similar 
caiastrophies. 

Mr Michael Spicer, a junior 
transport minister, immedi- 
ately announced that the 
remaining Chinooks used in 
Britain for transporting civil- 
ians will not be allowed to fly 
again while the Civil Aviation 
Authority carries out its own 
inquiries. 

The preliminary report by 
the accident investigation 
chiefs provides a chilling ac- 
count of the last moments 
before the Chinook plunged 
into the sea on November 6. 
The helicopter's commander 
was minutes from arriving at 
Sumbuigh airport and had 
just received clearance to 
land. 

“No further radio commu- 
nication was heard from the 
Chinook. At this time the crew 
remarked on a noticeable 
increase in the noise level on 
the flight deck. One of them 
described it as a roaring noise. 

“This was followed by a 
'bang', the aircraft pitched 
nose up to a near vertical 
attitude, went out of control 
and crashed into the water." 

A demited examination of 
the helicopter's transmission 
system had identified “a cata- 
strophic fatigue failure of a 
spiral bevel ring gear in die 
forward rotor gearbox”. 

The failure almost certainly 
led to the helicopter’s two sets 
of rotor blades becoming 
desynchronized “resulting in 
the rear rotor blades colliding 
with those of the forward 
rotor,” the report adds. 

S imilar gears taken from 
other Chinooks operated by 
British Internationa] Hel- 
icopters “also show evidence 
of fretting and fatigue 
cracking". 

BIH, recently bought by Mr 
Robert Maxwell from British 
Airways, voluntarily groun- 
ded its three remaining Chi- 
nooks after the Shetland crash. 

In a Commons written an- 
swer last night, Mr Spicer said: 


Police meet community 
over Tamil deaths 

By Stewart Tendler, Crime Reporter 


Police investigating the east 
London arson artack in which 
three Tamils died are to hold a 
public meeting tonight to 
explain to the local commu- 
nity the progress of the 
inquiry. 

The meeting at East Ham 
town hall, not far from the 
scene of the fire in a terrace 
house last week, will be held 
by senior officers- A public 
briefing on an important 
crime such as a murder in- 
quiry is thought to be unprece- 
dented. although meetings 
have been held in the after- 
math of public disorder. 

Tonight's takes place 
against a background of local 
fcais that the fire was part of a 
series of race attacks in the 
area. But detectives who are 
questioning a number of Tam- 
ils increasingly believe the 
motive for the attack lies in 


Tamil politics and feuds 
within rival groups. 

Yesterday one of six Tamils 
arrested at the weekend was 
released. After holding the 
other five for 36 hours, the 
police were given an extension 
by a local magistrate to con- 
tinue questioning them. 
Detectives were also interro- 
gating a man held on Sunday 
night 

The three Tamils who died 
were trapped early on Friday 
morning when three petrol 
bombs were thrown through 
the windows of the house in 
which they were staying. Six 
others who were in the house 
escaped serious injury. 

Police have investigated re- 
ports of a fight between rival 
Tamil groups over a week ago 
and another attack on a house 
which may be linked to the 
arson. 


Civil Liberties, which would 
have to deride what stance to 
take were measures to be 
taken restricting the freedom 
of Aids carriers and vic tims. 

• The TUC and CBL which 
must tackle the problem of 
Aids victims or camera in the 
workplace. 

• The Department of Educa- 
tion and Science, Much has 
encountered cases of 
haemophiliac schcrolduldrcn 
boycotted because they have 
contracted the virus. 

• The Church of England and 
the National Federation of 
Women's Institutes, both of 


which have taken a keen 
interest in the ramifications of 
Aids. 

Mr Roy Galley, a Conser- 
vative member ox the commit- 
tee, said: “We have got to be 
entirely frank with ourselves 
and the country on this issue, 
and really son ont what the 
options are for dealing with 
the threat and what is the best 
thing to do to safeguard the 
nation’s health." 

The Ministry of Defence 
said yesterday that it h as no 
known cases of Aids victims, 
although it cannot say how 


many servicemen may be 

carriers. 

Last month, it distributed 
300,000 copies of a Health 
Education Council booklet 
with as insert reminding 
servicemen that homosexual- 
ity and drag-taking, the two 
activities which place their 
practitioners at greatest risk, 
were outlawed by service 
regulations. 

Servicemen found to have 
the disease would be medi- 
cally discharged, while carriers 
“are unlikely to be fit enough 
to remain in service". Total 
screening has been ruled out 


“Air safety is the statutory 
responsibility of the CAA, 
who I understand have been 
closely involved with the ac- 
cident investigation which has 
been studying the trans- 
mission gearbox failure se- 
quence and its metallurgy. 

“Whilst the authority is 
evaluating the possibility of 
safety returning the aircraft to 
service, the remaining Chi- 
nook helicopters cm the UK 
civil register will not be 
flying." 

• The remaining three Chi- ! 
nooks in British International 
Helicopters's fleet could be 
flying again soon (Our Air , 
Correspondent writes).

manufacturers, Boeing, the

istration in the US and the

North Sea workers have 
said they are prepared to face 
dismissal rather than fly again

The depth of feeling against 
the Chinook was made dear fa 
astntement sent to Aberdeen 
Press and Journal by the crew 
of Stadive, the mobile semi- 
su bmersible rig used to re- 
cover many of the bodies in the 
Shetland crash. 

The statement, described as 
“unauthorized" by the vessel's 
manag ement company, Sea- 
fonh Maritime, was paid to 
represent the majority view 
among the Stature's 128- 
strong crew.

victims, left hospital with her

nent in the gearbox does not 
have the same problem as a 
new modification fitted to the 
helicopters. 

Now the authority has ruled 
that the three helicopters must 
remain grounded until the 
original part can be installed 
in the gearbox again. 

Once the parts can be 
shipped to Scotland and in- 
stalled they will be inspected 
and tested by the authority’s 
engineers and the helicopters

Blackspot bypass underway 


Mr Peter Bottomley, the 
Minister for Transport, yes- 
terday started the work on the 
controversial bypass at Oke- 
hampton, Devon, by bulldoz- 
ing the first few yards. 

The bypass will slice 
through Dartmoor National 
Park and should solve one of 
Britain's worst holiday traffic 
blacks po is. 

The 5.3 mile road, de- 
scribed by opponents as “a 
disaster for the national part”, 
will cost £16.6 million. It will 
take two years to build and 
will eventually form part of a 
dual carriageway linking the 
M5 to Cornwall

Dartmoor has angered conser-

Warning 
on Ulster 
uniforms 

By Richard Ford 

The police in Northern Ire- 
land fast night warned civil- 
ians who dressed fa uniforms 
and appeared at public rallies 
that they risked prosecution. 

The warning was prompted 
by the appearance at rallies 
last week of Chilians dressed 
fa paramilitary-style outfits. 
The statement said: “Recent 
events have been carefully 
monitored by the RUC, as will 
any future ac tiv i ty , and ev- 
idence of breaches of the law 
will be reported to the Director 
of Public Prosecutions". 

The statement came after 
displays at Ulster Resistance 
rallies fa which a uniformed 
colour party carried standards 
of the movement’s nine battal- 
ions. On Saturday uniformed 
men carrying Ulster Defence 
Association ffcqpi appeared at 
a rally is the centre of Belfast 
• A reservist fa tire RUC his 
wife and tewiay grandson, 
were treated fa hospital yes- 
terday after a petrol bomb 
attack. 

The bomb was thrown 
through a window of the 
officer’s home in Lisbon, Co 
Antrim. 

Three men were later being 
questioned by police. 


battle and a lengthy public 
Inquiry work has now started. 

Mr Bottomley said the road 
would attract employment 
and bring a welcome boost to 
the straggling south-west tour- 
ist industry. 

He said: “Every time a road 
report says there is a seven- 
mile queue on the A30 at 
Okehampton a lot of tourist 
trade money and employment 
prospects disappear. 

“In these days of unemploy- 
ment if you want people tp 
stay in the south-west you 
have got to have road commu- 
nications that will allow 
employment and the tourist 
industry to prosper. 

“When the A30 is unproved 
the tourist season will extend 


and the road wil provide 
greater relief to villagers." 

Mr Bottomley defended the 
choice of a southern bypass 
route which cuts across Dart- 
moor. He claimed the road 
would not scar the environ- 
ment and said trees would be 
planted to hide sections of the 
dual caniagway. 

Veteran Dartmoor cam- 
paigner Lady Sayer said: “1 
think Mr Bottomley should be 
ashamed ofhimse If. He knows 
that what be has initiated is a 
disaster for the national park, 
its beautiful surroundings and 
the environment. 

“The bypass will look its 
worst in a few months time 
and everyone will see the 
damage at just about the time 
of the next election." 


Ilea office move 
could cost £ 67 m 


The cost of moving the 
Inner London Education 
Authority out of County HaD 
could range from £67 million 
to £236 million, according to a 
study commissioned by Qea 
and carried ont by the prop- 
erty consultants, Knight 
Frank & Rutley. 

The London Residuary 
Body, successor to the abol- 
ished Greater London Coun- 
cil has given Dea formal 
notice to leave County Hall by 
the end of March 1988. That 
date allows six months longer 


I envisaged when the GLC was 

abolished. 

The five buildings in the 
County Hall compter are for 
sale through the estate agents, 
Richard EUis. which claims to 
have had inquiries from about 
200 possible purchasers. 

The least expensive solu- 
tion. according to Knight 
Frank & Rutley, would befor 
Bea to remain in the Riverside 
building of the County Hall 
complex, which has been de- 
scribed as the most desirable 
site in London. If Ilea bought 
the Riverside bunding, it is 
suggested, the cost could be 
£55 million, but it would also 
be necessary to spend between 
£12.1 million and £172 mil-

bon on refruinshmem, includ- 
ing the removal of asbestos. 

The only other building of 
adequa te size for Bea head- 
quarters staff of about 3,500, 
which 1ms been identified as 
likely to become available in 
the immediate future, is the 
IC1 building, a riverside head- 
quarters on Mfllbank to the 
west of Westminster. Here the 
freehold value is estimated at 
£84 million. 

Failing either of these, Bea 
would have to build on its 
own account or await the 
completion of another devel- 
opment such as that on the site 
of the old Royal Mint, to the 
east of the City. The cost there 
could be as much as £236 
million, the report says. 

Bea fa keen to remain at 
County Hall, but as a rate- 
capped authority, sufcgect to 
prescribed expenditure, has i 
no possibility of paying to j 
move more than 3,000 staff i 
needing nearly 60,000 square 
feet of office accommodation. 
The London Residuary Body 
denies responsibility for re- 
housing Dea and would need 
government consent, which 
has not yet been applied for, to 
meet the costs of rehousing the 
authority from the sale of 
GLC assets. 


fag or iMpffiwdfeg could be 
considered: to prevent the use 
of the vehicle on the road; to 
eusme *iw* vehicle owners 
come fur mud to settle out- 
standing payments relating to 
their vehicles; or as a pe%tUy 
imposed by a court for offences 
involving the use of a vehicle. 

Among the circumstances in 
which the use of impounding 
or wheel-damping m ight be 
appropriate are where drivers 
are unfit to use their vehicles, 
or they are known to have been 
disqualified from driving,, or 
where no vehide exdse licence 
is displayed. 

It says that if an impounded 
vehide turned rat to have 
defects which contravened 
construction and use regain - 
tions, “it might be thought 
right for the police to be able to 
require that such defects were 
remedied before the vehide 
was released and, where nec- 
essary, any fixed penalties 
were paid. 

“Alternatively, if tins were 
thought to be too oppressive, it 
might be possible to require 
the vehicle defects to be rec- 
tified within a fixed tone limit, 
as happens under the vehide 
defect rectification schemes in 
operation fa most police 
forces." 

Where owners have shown 
themselves untru s tw orthy fa 
the nse of a vehide, by 
reckless driving, or by driving 
while disqualified, it might 
seem an appropriate penalty 
for tiie courts to order the 
impounding of the vehicle for a 
specified period, or in extreme 
cases, permanently. 

Britain is 
‘mean in 
giving aid’ 

By Sheila Gunn 

Political Staff 

Britain's aid to developing 
countries is becoming increas- 
ingly “mean, devious and 
mercenary" and did nothfag to 
help mass poverty, according 
to an group of experts. 

They condemn the Govern- 
ment's policy of placing Brit- 
ish interests first as not only 
grossly selfish and even im- 
moral, but also self-defeating. 

In its latest booklet Missed 
Opportunities, the Indepen- 
dent Group on British Aid 
says that the problems of the 
poorest two-three bfifion peo- 
ple have become worse. 

It says: “Individ nate, here 
as elsewhere, have shown deep 
concern about the' plight at 
those living fa d estitu t ion in 
other continents, above all in 
the generous response made 
the Ba d Aid, Sports Aid and 
othff appeals. 

“Against this, for the most 
part, the response which the 
governments of the richer 
countries have made has been 
mean and self-interested. 

“Hardly any has been 
meaner and more self-in- 
terested fa its response Hun 
the British G o v ernm ent." 

The group cri ti cize s the 
fashion of linking aid with 
commercial contracts for Brit- 
ish firms.

yesterday of causing death by 
reckless driving.

man was guilty of ca r el e s s 
driving. He was fined £200 

and banned for three years.

63; drove at lull speed into tire 
bade of vehidcs on tire M 6 
near Preston “totally oblivi-

worked for the same company

yesterday’s hearing. *

Mentally ill and mentally

becoming stranded in private

Association of County Coun- 
cillors says (Jill Sherman ■ 
writes). 

The association says that 
because people are often 
moved from one institution to 
another they can end u p Jin a 
private home, miles from 
. where they were orijpnally 
living, with no local authority 
taking responsibility to ensure 
that they get adequate care. 

That ran create difficulties 
in determining who should 
meet “topping up payments",

charge levied by the private 
; home and the maximum paid 
i in board and lodging benefits 
by the Department of Health 
. and Social Security.

We are considering the current 
draft text of the agreement 
against the criteria 1 have al- 
ready outlined to the House 
and. in due time, I will inform 
the House of the Government’s 
decision. 

Mr Radice: Is not the real reason

to gel a pay structure which wifi

The swiftness with which the 
Government and the City had 
reacted to the allegations of 
insider dealing on the Stock 
Exchange demonstrated their 
determination to deal with such 
offences and the success of seat 
regulation. Mr Michael Hew- 
! am, Under-Secrrlary ofState for 
Trade and Industry, said in the 
House of Commons when 
answering a private notice 
question. 

He said that on November 14 
Mr Paul Channon, Secretary of 
State for Trade and Industry, 
had made a commencement 1 
order bringing into force on ! 
November IS those sections of 
the Financial Services Act relat- 
ing to powers to investigate

Mr Robin Cook, for the Opposi- 
tion, who had raised the issue, 
congratulated the Government 
on bringing in powers which 
only two weeks earlier it bad 
been saying could not be in- 
troduced until next year. Would 
the Government look min the

two weeks after the structure

ceded by average rises in share 
prices of 66 per cent as insiders 
cashed in on their knowledge. 
Of SO cases refined to the C«y 
since 1981, only six had resulted 
in prosecutions. Why was fiend 
in the City not prosecuted with 
the same vigour as fraud in the 
DHSS? 

The whole tale of seedy 
speculation, broken rules and 
tax avoidance through the Cay- 
man Islands, came in the same 
week as it had been confirmed 
that manufacturing investment 
had fallen by 6 per cent on the 
preceding year. 

Mr Howard said the remainder 
of the Act would be brought into 
force as soon as it was prac- 
ticable. It was not practicable to 
bring in all its provisions 
immediately. 

Mr Tune*? Smith (Beacons- 
field, Q said that the difference 
between the present case and all 
previous ones was that Moigan 
Grenfell had dealt with, it with- 
out hesitation. That showed that 
self-regulation was effective. 

Mr Howard said that if it had 
been suggested two weeks eartier 
that a major finance house . 
would have asked for the i 
resignation of one of its most ■ 
senior employees for a breach of ! 
internal rules, it would have i 
been g reet e d with scepticism, 
not least by the Opposmoo. 

Mr Robert Sheldon (Ashton- 
under-Lyne, Lab) said it had 
been the crudeness of the 
method of the share purchase 
which had brought the offence 
to light. That would not be the 
norm.

congratulate the local authority 
representatives, especially Mr 
John Fea rman, and also the 
teachers’ leaders for their drive, 
determination and common 
sense which has led to this far- 
reaching, comprehensive 
agreement. 

Will he tell his cabinet col- 
leagues that the agreement for 
the first time provides basic pay 
for classroom Teachers while 
maintaining an adequate pro- 
motion ladder? 

Also for the first time, it sets 
out teachers’ duties, creates a 
system of teachers' appraisal, 
draws up a plan for reducing 
class sizes and creates bargain- 
ing machinery which links pay 
and conditions. 

Would he also remind his 
colleagues that an agreement 
backed by unions representing 
two thirds of teachers is far more 
likely to stick than a settlement 
that is imposed from above? 

For the sake of a slightly 
different pay structure and a 
relatively small extra cost — 
barely £50 million over the 
next 18 months in central 
Government contribution — is 
it worth risking all the problems 
and potential disruption which 
could result from imposing a 
settlement? 

The Government should put 
peace in the classroom and the 
children first and back this 
agreement. 

Mr Baker: He must be aware 
that this agreement is not com- 
plete. A full agreement does not 
at this stage exist. It is a draft 
text and some important details 
remain to be finalized, for 
example on the duties of heads 
and deputy heads. 

I understand a further draft 
will emerge during this week 
and 1 must ask Mr Radice to be 
patient as be knows I am a 


their efforts. The proposals in 
the draft text create little in- 
centive fora career in teaching . 

What other profession has a 
career structure where the re- 
wards above the bask scale are 
as low as 5 per cent and 14 per 
cent? 

Mr Reginald Prentice (Dav- 
entry, C) said that the careful 
and thorough consideration Mr 
Baker was giving the latest 
proposals was in marked con- 
trast to the hostile kneqerk 
reaction of the union leaders to 
bis own proposals. 

Mr Baker agreed. Within five 
minutes of his own earlier 
proposals being announced, the 
NUT and Mr Peatman had said 
they would ignore them. Nego- 
tiations were going to resume 
and it would be quite wrong for 
him to react quickly to what was 
still only a draft texL 
Mr Goy Barnett (Greenwich, 
Lab) said that the unions and 
the employers had worked pa- 
tiently and lard to get as far as 
they could towards a full agree- 
ment and Mr Baker now had a 
unique opportunity to co-op- 
erate with the employers and the 
unions in order to settle the 
dispute. 

Mr Baker said he was sure all 
MPs would not wish to see a 
return to disruption in schools 
but the only bodies which 
imposed disruption were the 
teachers’ unions. 

Mr David Made! (South West 
Bedfordshire, Q asked for 
confirmation that a settlement

There was ample scope for 
better public services within the 
public spending provision made 
by the Government if local 
authorities improved efficiency, 
Mr Nicholas Ridley, Secretary 
of State for the Environment, 
said in the Commons during the 
resumed debate on the Queen's 
Speech. 

Local government was now a 
big spender. This year it ac- 
counted for £38 billion, or over 
25 per cent of ail public spend- 
ing. It employed 2ft million 
people, or about one in ten of 
the workforce.

“The scale of spending and 
the politicization of its attitudes

House for consideration.** 

The Government had made a

5.25 per cent against an infla-

“It is local authorities who are

Any sane government had to 
recognize that the spending 
plans of local authorities had a 
significant impact on the econ-

tween even greater constraints 
on spending by local authorities 
or getting a system where there 
was accountability to those who

The seasonally adjusted figure 
for the number of people oat of 
work in Wales had fallen in six 
of the past seven months, Mr 
Nicholas Edwards, Secretary of 
State Ah' Wales, said during . 
Welsh questions in the Com- ' 
HMDS. _ _ 

the GovCTnmeirthad led to a fail 
of 8,600 in the seasonally ad- 
justed figures for Wales since 
last year. There had been a rise 
of 100 in May. 

The seasonally adjusted num- 
ber of unemployed claimants in 
Wales had risen to 169,000 last 
month since October 1979, an 
in cre ase of 147.4 per cent. 

He was replying to Mrs Ann 
Clwyd (Cyncm Valley, Lab), , 
who said that one in three 
famili es in Wales were living 
bdow the poverty line. Three ! 
hundred thousand people were - 
living on supplementary benefit. ' 

Earlier, he said the unadjusted 
number of unemployed people . 
in Wales was 174,105. Un- 
adjusted figures for 1979 were 
not available on a co m p ara b le . 
msis. 

Dr John Marek (Wrexham, 
Lab) said many of the new jobs 
created in Wales were low paid. 
Those jobs were welcome, but 
they were generally regarded as - 
slave-labour and were no sub- . 
stitute for well paid head-of- 
household jobs. 

Mr Edwards said he did not 
believe that those employed 
would regard the jobs as slave 
labour. The suggestion was 
ludicrous. 

Mr Michael Foot (Blaeneu 
Gwent, Lab) said the unemploy- 
ment in some areas made a 
mockery of any suggestion that 
there had been six years of 
growth. Why were some of those 
areas not going to have restored 
to them some of the cuts on 
regional aid whicb had contrib- 
uted to the numbers un- 
employed? 

Mr Edwards said they had 
contributed to the nil in . 
unemployed. 

Mr Barry Jones, chief Op- 
position spokesman on Wales, - 
said that 174.000 jobless Welsh 
people were coding Britain 
£21 million a week. There were 
45,000 on special programmes 
and die new test questions 
would matsagp downwards the 
unemployment figures by an- 

Mr Edwards said there were 
49,400 on special measures 
which indicated the Gov- 
ernment’s concern and effective 
action. 

Sir Raymond Gower (Vale of 
Glamorgan, Q said the Govern- - 
ment was entitled to have some , 
modest optimism from the in- 
crease in the number of notified 
vacancies. 

Mr Edwards said the number 
had increased by 4,600 on the ' 
corresponding month last year. 
That was another indication of 
the improved situation.

The Government campaign 
against Acquired immmy- De- 
ficiency Syndrome (Aids) would 
be directed specifically at those 
people who were most vulner- 
able, Mr Mat Robinson, 
Under-Secretary of Slate for 
Wales, said during Welsh ques- 
tions in the Commons. 

He was replying to Mr Gareth 
Warden (Gower, Lab), who 
asked why the Government had 
dallied and dithered over a very 
difficult problem. The debate in 
the country had centred on 
looking fix- scapegoats. 


Arson attacks 
condemned 


An all-party group of 50 
MPs and peers yesterday chal- 
lenged the Government’s pol- 
icy of recognizing the Greek 
Cypriots as the government of 
the whole of Cypirus. 

Their call coincided with 
the arrival in London of Mr 
Rauf Denktas, President of 
the self-styled Turkish Repub- 
lic of Northern Cyprus, who 
will this afternoon be arguing 
the Turkish case for inter- 
national recognition before 
the Commons Foreign Affairs 
committee. 

The parliamentary Friends 
of Turkish Cyprus group, 
chaired by the former Conser- 
vative defence minister Mr 
Keith Speed, argues that the 
1974 Turkish invasion of 
Cyprus was legitimate. 

In a pamphlet issued yes- 
terday, it accused the Govern- 
ment of undermining United 
Nations efforts to achieve a 
settlement in Cyprus and of 
breaching British obligations 
under the I960 Treaty of 


Guarantee by failure to deal 
with Greek and Turkish Cyp- 
riots on an equal fooling. 

“Greek Cypriots occupy the 
Cyprus chair at the United 
Nations, at Commonwealth 
meetings, and at meetings of 
all the major international 
organizations; they receive al- 
most all the foreign aid and 
investment in Cyprus, they 
enjoy full economic relations 
with the world, and their 
economy prospers. They have 
no incentive to reach a 

settlement" 


Mr David Abbott an 
advertising man with a dis- 
trust of slogans, was yesterday 
appointed publicity consultant 
to the Alliance for the run-op 
to the general election. 

Mr Abbott, aged 48, is

answers to the nation's Sis. He 
wiD stamp his mark on every- 
thing from party publications 
and television broadcasts to

An Alliance supporter, not a 
member, be will work with a 
team of like-stinded people at 
his company, which is receiv- 
ing an undisclosed sum from 
party coffers for its help. 

His present clients indnde

The Alliance, he said, was

Mr Malcolm Rifkiad, Secretary 
iff State for Scotland, denied 
that the geographical location of 
Peterhead could be seen to be in 
any way relevant to “recent 
difficulties*' when he was ad- 
vised by Mr Donald Dewar, 
chief Opposition spokesman on 
Scottish affairs, to reconsider 
the proposal to build a new 
prison at Peterhead. 

In a statement on the recent 
holding of a prison officer as a 
-hostage and other disturbances 
at Peterhead. Mr Rifldnd said- 
that the incidents had involved 
relatively few inmates. 

He deplored the actions of a 
minority who had been res- 
ponsible. They had come at a 
time when the Government was 
seeking to provide mare mod- 
ern facilities in Scottish prisons. 

The Chief Inspector of Pris- 
ons had been charged with 
investigating the nature, extent 
and validity of general griev- 
ances indicated by prisoners at 
Peterhead. 

The report would be pub- 
lished. Any complaints of crim- 
inal conduct were for tbe police 
and procurator fiscal to investi- 
gate and complaints implying 
criminal conduct by prison sum 
could be made by inmuKt 

Mr Dewar said that no one 
would question the impartiality 
of the chief inspector, but it was 
important _ that the inquiry 
should inspire confidence inside 
and outside the prison system. 

“Is the chief inspector's remit 
wide enough to deal with the 
causes of tensions which un- 
doubtedly exist today and 
would it not be better to appoint 
an independent person or 
committee rather than a senior 
Civil Servant who could be seen 
as compromised by bis po- 
sition?” 

He asked Mr Rifkiod to 
consider the impact on tire 
prison system of tire changes 


introduced about two years ago 
in the parole system, retrospec- 
tively in some cases, whicb had 
resulted in some who were 
serving more than five years 
being excluded from the parole 
system, except in exceptional 
circumstances. 

Asking the Secretary of Stale 
to return to the drawing-board 
on tire parole system. He said 
that tire changes had been 
introduced by fiat and had not 
been property discussed. Fe- 
terhead was an unpopular site, 
difficult of access by auniliea. 
Mr Rffldsd said ttoi tire Chief 
Inspector was completely in- 
dependent of tire Scottish pris- 
ons department and would 
report direct to the Secretary of 
State. 

The reasons for the change in 
tire parole system had been 
concern about horrific murder, 
violence, and drug t rafficking 
Mr Albert McQnirie (Banff 
and Buchan, C), in whose 
constituency the prison is situ- 
ated, asked for an assurance that 
the new budding there would be 
started, as planned, in March 
next year. 

Mr Rifldnd: I hope that recent 
events will not affect long-term 
plans for Peterhead. At present I 
have no reason to believe that 
they win. 

Mr Robert Madcnum (Caith- 
ness and Sutherland, SDP): The 
crucial consideration wc are 
having to face in Scotland is that 
there is a pattern of violence in 
the prisons unde r the present 
Administration (Conservative 
protests).

Another prisoner, at 
Wymott Prison, Lancashire, 
which was also seriously dam- 
aged, wrote: “Nothing led up 
to the riots at Wymott, but the 
prison officers did provoke 
the cons into a riot. They said 
things like ‘Do a good job 
tonight lads’ and ‘Dons proud 
lads’. They knew what was 
going on and what was about 
to happen that night." ■ 

The Prison Officers' Associ- 
ation said yesterday the ac- 
counts were by anonymous 
prisoners whose names were 
withheld because they took an 
active part in the disturbances 
and admitted to doing so.. 

It was inconceivable that 
officers would encourage such 
behaviour and thus place tbeir 
own lives and those of their, 
colleagues and families, who 
live adjacent to the prisons, at 
risk. 

Gose scrutiny of the anony- 
mous accounts showed stark 
inconsistencies in the 
prisoners’ accounts. The de- 
cision by the Prison Reform 
Trust to publish the anony- 
mous accounts was not in 


The report adm its there are 
some significant differences in 
the interpretation of events as 
well as examples of personal 
prejudice. 

Bui it says: “In feet it is 
really rather surprising how 
many similarities there are 
between the accounts, given 
the widely differing back- 
grounds and attitudes of these 
prisoners and the feet that 
they do not know one 
another.". 

Dr Shaw says there was no 
single cause of the distur- 
bances, however. “In part they 
occurred because the Home 
Office’s industrial relations 
tactics relied upon brink- 
manship, upon calling the 
prison officers’ bluff 
. Shamefully, a few rogue 
prison officers took up that

He believes an ann ounce ^- 
ment inustbe made as swiftly 
as possible so that key de- 
cisions on electricity produ- 
ction can be taken, including 
replacing out-dated coal fired 
power stations. 

After the Chernobyl diaster 
public doubts about nuclear 
power increased, but the latest 

market research by the 
Department of Energy has 
confirmed that confidence in 
the industry’s safety record is 
being restored. 

If as widely expected, Mr 
Walker gives permission for 
ihe £1,500 million Sizewell 
power station, the CEGB will 
be able to start work within 
weeks. It has already ordered 
key parts of the FWR system 
and is anxious to make a rapid 
start, especially as the delay is 
co sting h £500,000 a month. 

The CEGB wants to build a 
“snail family” of FWR star 
tions after Sizewell including 
one at Hinldey in Somerset. 

The Sizewell inquiry, which 
ran from January 1983 to 
March 1985, beard evidence 
from 200 witnesses on 340 
days, but the CEGB is hopeful 
that future applications to 
build FWR plants will not 
involve such lengthy procee- 
dings.

Reading statements made 
by Mr Hasi to the police and 
an examining magist rate 
his arrest-on April IS, Herr 
Hans-Joacbim Heinza, the 
presiding judge, said Mr Hasi 
had admitted placing the 
bomb at the society. 

Mr Hasi had claimed that 
Hindawi had persuaded him 
to make the attack after the 
two brothers visited the soci- 
ety and spoke to its Arab 
oigaziizexs. Hindawi had de- 
cided that , the society should 
be taught a lesson because it 
did not support his grouping. 

Mr Hast told the police that 
the bomb used in the attack 
was brought from Syria in 
February this year by a man 
named Abu Ahmed, or 
Haytham Saed, who deposited 
it at the Syrian Embassy in 
East Beriin. ' 

Mr Hasi said Hindawi told 
him to make contact with Abu 
Ahmed at the embassy, using 
the codename “FahdL" 

He then went to East Beriin 


and he and Abu Ahmed, a 
driver and an unknown other 
roan picked up the bomb and 
took it by car to East Berlin’s 
Ostbahmof railway station. 
He deposited de bomb in the 
station’s left-luggage room, 
then returned to west Beriin. 

MrSalameh told police that 
he later collected the bomb 
from Mr Hasi and another 
man after it bad been snug- 
gled out of East Berlin. 

The court heard that Mr 
Hasi and Mf Salameb made 
two unsuccessful attempts to 
explode the bomb at the soc- 
iety before Hindawi sent a 
Syrian expert to show them 
bow to make it work. 

At one point, Mr Hasi 
treated the court to an emo- 
tional torrent of Arabic and 
broken German, claiming that 
he bad been subjected to 
torture during his ax months 
in remand custody. 

He complained of solitary 
confinement, noises coming 
through his cell walls to 
confuse and drugs in his 
food. And he stated; “l am not 
guilty-” 

Dismissing the torture 
daim, the judge told the court 
that he had personally in- 
spected Mr Hasi’s cell and 
found no noises. He had also 
let Mr Hasi mix with other 
prisoners and allowed him 
weekly visits from his wife. 

The case continues.

US ends Iran arm supplies 
in bid to stop Shultz row 


The White House an- 
nounced yesterday that the 
United States was no longer 
sending arms to Iran and had 
no plans to resume shipments. 

The statement by Mr Larry 
Spcakes, the spokesman, was 
designed to dispel the im- 
pression of continuing open 
disagreement between Mr 
Georg: Shultz, the Secretary 
of Scale, and President Reagan 
over the issue. This followed 
mounting speculation here 
that Mr Shultz might be an 
early casualty of the disarray 
in the Administration over 
how to repair its damaged 
credibility. 

In an extraordinary ad- 
mission on Sunday, Mr Shultz 
said he was unable to speak for 
the Administration in his 
cafiing for a bait to arms 
shipments to Iran. 

He made little effort to

An attempt to solve die 
Anglo-French lamb war, re- 
garded by many EEC officials 
as a symptom of the wonen- 
crisis over European form 
icy, foundered yesterday 
when the European Commis- 
sion foiled to agree on 
posals to be put before 
ministers. 

There was also Initial dead-

troubled common agricultural 
policy. . - 

The firm ministers’ meet- 
ing, chaired by Mr Michael 
Jopfing, Minister of Agri- 
culture, was marked by reluc- 
tance to accept the Com- 
mission's proposed 3 per cent 
cut in milk quotas 


The Commission says the 
measure is . necessary if the 
growing firm surpluses are to 
be reduced. But as the min- 
isters began their meeting, 
officials said EEC govern- 
ments were unwilling to lake 
action likely to put dairy 
fanners out of business. 

The Commission met yes- 
terday in advance of the Farm 
- Council to consider its strat- 
egy. But although its policy on 
dairy surpluses is dear, it was 
unable to agree on the applica- 
tion of an export tax to British 
lamb by widening the system 
of taxes and subsidies known 
as monetary compensatory 
amounts which compensate 
EEC states for temporary 
trade disadvantages due to 
currency fluctuations. 


the White House, and said the 
value to US interests of such 
shipments was “debatable”. 
His knowledge of the opera- 
tion was “fragmentary at 
best”. 

“We gave a signal and. . .as 
fir as Fm concerned, I don't 
see any need for forther 
signals.” Asked if any more 
arms should be sent to Iran, he 
added: “Under the circum- 
stances oflran’s war with Iraq, 
its pursuit of terrorism, its 
association with those holding 
our hostages, I would certainly 
say no.” 

But when asked “do you 
have the authority to speak for 
the entire Administration?" 
he replied: "No.” 

It is rare aand potentially 
embarrassing for a Secretary 
of State publicly to advocate a 
course of action and then 
admit that his views are not

spokesman. 

Because of Mr Shultz’s 
known opposition to the arms 
shipments, this has renewed 
speculation here that he has 
been put in an impossible 
position and may feel obliged 
eventually to resign. 

Late on Sunday, sources 
dose to Mr Shultz said he had 

tiie'^tCTvi^^fodi^^g ri tiiat 
it highlighted too vividly his 
disagreement with the Pres- 
ident’s decision. 

Meanwhile, Tune magazine 
yesterday quoted Israeli sour- 
ces as saying that shipments of 
US arms through Israel to Iran 
began as early as 1982 and 
were continuing as recently as 
two weeks ago. 

President Reagan said in his 
televised statement on Thurs- 
day that he authorized only 
snrall shipments of arms and 
military spare parts, small 
enough to be flown in a single 
aircraft load. 

The Israeli sources said a 
freighter picked up a cargo of 
arms at the Israeli port ofEilat 
and delivered it to Bandar 
Abbas in Iran sometime be- 
tween November 2 and 
November 7. By then, the 
controversy over the arms had 
already begun. 

The Administration has 
been especially carefol to gloss 
over the Israeli role and 
President Reagan never men- 
tioned it in his broadcast But 
congressional and Admin- 
istration sources have said it 
was at Israel's urging that Mr 
Reagan first adopted the pol- 
icy of trying to woo Iranian 
moderates with arms, that 
Israel had persuaded Wash- 


policy of secretly arming Iran 


Criticism of President Rea- 
gan's broadcast has continued 
to mount as a growing number 
of Congressmen, both Repub- 
lican and Democrat have 
called for a fuller explanation. 

1 Televirion polls showed 
that 56 per cent of viewers 
disbelieved his assertion that 
arms were not traded for 
hostages, up to 70 per cent 
rejected the use of arms to 
improve relations and 79 per 
cent disapproved of sending 
weapons to win the release of 
the hostages. 

On Saturday, President 
Reagan held an unpublicized 
meeting with top advisers at 
Camp David to decide what to 
do about Iran. No agreements 
were readied and Mr Shultz 
was reportedly still at odds 
with the others. Mrs Thatcher 
saw Mr Reagan there later the 
same day. 

With the White House mak- 
ing it dear that Admiral John 
Poindexter, the national sec- 
urity adviser, win not be 
allowed to testify at the 
congressional hearings, foe 
Administration is having 
difficulty working out its tac- 
tics to defuse the swirling 
controversies on Capitol HilL 

Mr Shultz, who normally 
speaks on main foreign policy 
issues, is in the embarrassing 
position of not only disagree- 
ing with Iran policy but also 
not knowing many of the 
details. 

Asa witness, however, he is 
expected to support the at- 
tempt to make contact with 
moderate elements in Tehran 
because of the importance of 
Iran’s geo-strategic position in 
the Middle East

Africa aid 
to reforms 

By Andrew McEwen 


A few hours before bostinga 
dinner for President Yoweri 
Museveni of Uganda, Mr 
Christopher Patten, Munster 
for Overseas Development, 
yesterday made a speech bris- 
tling with coded fainls to bis 
guest on the handling of his 
economy. 

Mr Patten set the shape of 
future British aid to African 
nations on a day when the 
Prime Minister and Jbree 
other ministers held meetings 
with President Museveni. 

While talking about eco- 
nomic reforms Britain would 
like to see in sub-Sabd African 
countries, Mr Patten fisted a 
string of specific criticisms. 
Mast of the points have been 
mentioned by White hall ex- 
perts as areas of concern in 
Uganda’s economy. 

They included inadequate 

incentives, to cro * > 
producers, unrealistic ex- 
change rates and excessive 
stale regulation. . 

Uganda's 50 per cent tax On 
coffee producer* its refusal to 
devalue the duffing, and lack 
of encouragement to p rivate 
enterprise have all been 

sources of wo try. _ • 

President Museveni, whose 
relations with Britain have 
been excellent since he came 
to power in January has 
shown no interest in following 
IMF suggestions for reform. 

In an apparent hint to him 

to change bis mindj Mr Patten 

.said: “In some countries an

may be a fcey precondiuon tb r 

development to be restored- 

Without mentioning Ugan-

Police break General Motors picket 


. From Michael Horasby 
Port Elizabeth 

’General Motors (GM) 
called in riot office armed 
with whips and dogs to <fis> 
perse pickets outside its motor

terday, and set a deadline of 
9 am ' today for striking 
employees to return to work-

The summoning of the pol- 
ice was denounced as “deplor- 
able and anti-democratic” by 
the Congress of South African . 
Trade Unions (Cosatu) in a 
statement condemning what it 
termed GM^ “dirty tactics" 
and “high-banded and ar-:

pickets had been removed, “a

Mr White said there would 
be no difficulty: in fitting the 
places of striking emptoyees. 
“We wmst already have had

people." 

This is entirely plausible as 
the Port Elizabeth region is in

looking for work.

Both*! ‘deaf to change 



Roman Catholic bishops 
Dram a meeting with 
Botha m Pretoria 
yesterday, sayfog: that .theft 
appeal to bib to institute

“deaf ears" (Ray Kennedy 
writes from Johannesburg). 

The six-member delegation 
was led by the Mo& Rev Denis 
Harley, Archbishop of Dur- 
ban and presxfonf of, the 


Southern African Catholic- 
Bishops’ Conference 
(SACBQ. 

A request for a 
between Mr Botha and all 
bishops of the SACBC was 
turned down. • 

• The delegation had pressed 
Mr Botha to institute urgent 
reform “away from the. main 

[ af apartheid." i

On the face of it, NAAWlTs 
attitude is puzzling because it 
is a leading affiliate of Cosam, 
which publicly supports dis- 
investment by foreign com- 
panies as a means of putting 
pressure on Pretoria to speed 
up political change. 

Mr Sauls maintains, how- 
ever, that GM, which has not 
made a profit here since 1 981, 
is getting out of South Africa 
mainly tor economic reasons 
and not, as it claims, because 
of ffissatisfection with Pre- 
toria’s policies. • 

The union is demanding 
severance payments from GM 
equal to a month’s wages for 
every year worked (some 
employees have been with the 
company for 20 years or 
more), as well as foe option to 
reclaim contributions made to 
the company's pension fund. 

GM has said it considers the 
demands unreasonable. 


Jerusalem Arabs face backlash 

Jewish students seek 
revenge for murder 

From Ian Murray, Jerusalem 
Much of the Old City of makes many converts through 


Jerusalem was deserted yes- 
terday as shopkeepers kept up 
their shutters in fear after a 
spate of violent anti-Arab 
demonstrations, sparked by 
the murder of a young student 
from a Yeshiva bible college 
on Saturday. 

Fellow students of the dead 
man, Mr Eliahu Amedi, have 
been urging Jews to “make the 
Arabs pay” for the murder. 
Arab houses and cars have 
been stoned. An Arab shoe- 
maker has lost his livelihood 
because his shop near the 
Yeshiva has been burnt out 

Israeli helicopter gmtsfaips hit 
a Patesthnan guerrilla outpost 
sear Sidou, . Lebanon, in foe 
second raid in two days, the 
army said (Raster repeats 
from Tel Aviv). It claimed foe 
outpost belonged to the Syr- 
ian-based Popular From for 
the Liberation of Palestine 
(PFLP), which Israel blames 
for the awder of a Jewish 
s todeut in Jerusalem. 

Petrol bombs have been

Fearing an outbreak of

M^yor, called in 25 leaders of 
the Muslim community to 
urge them to speak out against 
violence. But, as border police 
patrolled the empty streets 
and deserted courtyards of the 
Old Q'ty yesterday, it was 
dear that it was the Arab 
population which was most 
worried about violence. 

The Yeshiva is a kind of 
Jewish settlement m what is 
now the Muslim quarter in tire 
north-east of the old walled 
city. Its students belong to the 
fervent Shuvu Banim (Return 
Oh Sons!) movement, a 
deeply orthodox group, which

proportion of its members has 
grown up in poverty and 
crime and has discovered in 
religion a new meaning to life. 

Despite their new-found 
devotion, they have a reputa- 
tion for being tough. The 
student who died on Saturday 
was jumped from behind by 
three people and, although 
mortally wounded, fought for 
about 12 minutes severely 
injuring one of his attackers 
with a knife he had wrested 
from him. 

The Yeshiva is built in one 
of the narrow streets which 
were deserted by the Jewish 
community during the riots of 
August 1929, in which 133 
Jews were killed and 110 
Arabs died in battles with the 
police. Since Israel captured 
theOIdOityin 1967, hard-tine 
Zionist groups have been try- 
ing to buy back property u 
this area to reclaim it. 

The site of the Yehsiva 
students, with their distinctive 
haircuts and dark dothes, has 
provoked their Arab neigh- 
bours through whose court- 
yard s they have to walk to go 
in and oul This has increased 
the tension in an already tense 
situation, and there has been a 
number of attacks on them, 
always countered by violence 
and demonstrations from ex- 
treme Zionist groups. 

The Government has 
shown little ability or obvious 
will to discipline them. Yes- 
terday, both Mr Ariel Sharon, 
the hard-line Trade and In- 
dustry Minister, and Mr 
Yitzhak Peretz, the ultra- 
Orthodox Interior Minister, 
condemned the murder, and 
called for tougher penalties for

COMMENTARY 



As «n exercise in Anglo- 
American consultation, Mrs 
Thatcher’s visit to Camp 
David was highly successful. 
She achieved what she went 
for, and she did ft on the basis 
of a carefully prepared dip- 
lomatic exercise. 

Her top priority was to 
persuade President Reagan 
not to seek foe elimination of 
all ballistic nuclear weapons. 
His readiness to agree to this 
as foe culmination of a tO-year 

disarmament programme was 
the most disturbing feature of 
Reykjavik. It was worse still 
that this proposition was re- 
peated in foe disarm ame nt 
proposals that the United 
States put forward after foe 
summit. 

The goal is mtrealistic be- 
cause neither the Soviet Uahm 
nor the United States would be 
prepared ultimately to give up 
all Its ballistic missiles. But 
the mere pursuit of the objec- 
tive was destabilizing because 
it would have weakened con- 
fidence in foe long-term 
American commitment to the 
nuclear protection of Europe. 

Now that Mr Reagan has 
agreed with Mrs Thatcher 
that foe complete removal of 

ballistic missiles should not be 
a priority. It looks as if the idea 
has been effectively dropped. 

Mr Reagan was probably att 
the more ready to accept foe 
Prime Minister’s argument 
because be had been prepared 
for it to advance. The British 
Embassy had made dear to 
offidais to Washington what 
Mrs Thatcher would be want- 
ing. 


Disillusionment 
about Reykjavik 


There was also, I suspect, 
not too much resistance. The 
failure of foe Shnltz-Shevard- 
nadze talks to Vienna have 
made a disarmament agree- 
ment seem a more distant 
prospect; and I have ftemd 
growing disillusionmeiit about 
Reykjavik among opinion- 
fonners both in Washington 
and around foe country. 

The prindpal lesson of 
Camp David, though, is that it 
is easier than is often ramgmed 
for European leaders to per- 
suade this, or indeed any 
other, Admunstratiou when 
they present a logical case 
forthrightly. At least it is 
always worth their making it 
absolutely plain what they 
think in good time. 

On one point I doubt if Mrs 
Thatcher said what she really 
thought at Camp David. She 
went along with the proposal 
that att intermediate-range 
missiles should be removed 
from both East and West 
Europe, merely adding some 
useful caveats mi verification 
and Soviet shorter-range miss- 
iles. 

What she was wary of, she 
maintained at the press con- 
ference afterwards, “was any 
settlement which merely 
moved back the SS2Qs ami 
would have enabled them to be 
moved forward ag a in ." But 
that is surely wbal would be 
foe practical effect of getting 
rid of all Euro-missiles while 
allowing the Soviet Union to 
keep 100 SS 20s to Asia. 


Moving missiles 
back across Urals 


These are highly mobile 
weapons. To move them bade 
across the Urals, whenever the 
Soviet leaders decided, would 
be a much simpler mutter, for 
pnutical and stOl more for 
political reasons, than bring- 
ing the American missiles 
back across the Atlantic once 
they had been taken home. 

The proof is probably that 
Mrs Thatcher accepted foe 
zero-zero option for Europe 
during the Reykjavik con- 
ference and feels that more 
harm titan good would be done 
by going back on that now. But 
what is really needed is stOl 
greater transatlantic frank- 


The point has been put to 
me forcibly on this visit that 
European leaders have so 
often been urging American 
Presidents to go further in 
negotiation with the Soviet 
Union that a general impres- 
sion has been created in the 
United States that the more 
disar mament there is, foe 
better Europe would be 


Bnt British and European 
interests are not so simple as 
that, and ft mold be so had 
thing far the Government to 
make the position erven dearer 
than it has done. 

Arras control is not in itsdf 
_ means to peace. That is 
secured by foe balance of 
strength- The purpose of arms 
control is to provide for that 
balance at a lower level of 
strength. Disarmament mea- 
sures are therefore much to be 
welcomed if, but only if, they 
both preserve the balance and 
do not weaken the American 
commitment to the defence of 
Europe.

The MI5 revelations trial 

Britain claims book by 
intelligence officer 
would endanger agents 


After legal argument lasting 
14 months, the British Gov- 
ernment yesterday launched 
gs case for suppressing Mr 
P«er Wright's manuscript 
with an outline of the damage 
it claims would be caused by 
the book's publication. 

In seeking an injunction to 
stop the former MI5 officer's 
book, Britain was supported 
in the New South Wales 
Supreme Court by an elev- 
enth-hour affidavit filed by 
the Hawke Government. 

Both administrations ar- 
gued that for a former intelli- 
gence officer, supposedly 
bound to silence, to disclose 
confidential security material 
would compromise intelli- 
gence organizations and 
threaten national security. 

Earlier, the British side had 
its request to the Court of 
Appeal for a stay of proceed- 
ings refbsed. But the court is 
to consider tomorrow — in 
what amounts to a trial within 
a trial — an application for 
leave to appeal against last 
week's Supreme Court order 
that Whitehall hand over se- 
cret documents as relevant 
background to the case. 

When the action finally got 
under way, the small court- 
room was packed with spec- 
tators. Also in court were Sir 
Robert Armstrong, the Cabi- 
net Secretary, Mr John Bailey, 
the Treasury Solicitor, and six 
other Whitehall civil servants. 

The central figure, Mr 
Wright, was not present, but 
he has come to Sydney from 
his retirement home in Tas- 
mania. 

At the outset, Mr Gavin 
Griffith, the Solicitor-General 
of Australia, rose to say he 
would be attending so that 
"issues of Crown privilege and 
public interest immunity” for 
Australia could be raised if 
necessary. 

Mr Theo Simas QC, appear- 
ing for the British Govern- 
ment said Mr Wright's 
confidential information had 
been gathered while he was an 
officer of MLS and was bound 
by a contractual obligation of 
confidence. 


From Stephen Taylor. Sydney 

It made no difference, Mr 
Simos added, that Whitehall 
bad adm itted, for the purposes 
of the case, that the allegations 
in his book were true. 

Four affidavits by Sir Rob- 
ert were read out in court In 
them, as Mrs Margaret 
Thatcher's principal adviser 
on security and intelligence, 
he listed the objections to 
publication. 

In the first Sir Robert said 
that during Mr Wright’s MI5 
service between 1955 and 
1976 he had had access to 
highly sensitive and classified 
information. 

The publication of such 
information would cause “un- 
quanti liable damage” to MI5, 
as other security services from 
which it received information 
would lose confidence in its 
ability to protect secrets. 

Sir Robert said in a second 
affidavit that Mr Wright had 
occupied "senior positions of 
trust”. His disclosures would, 
in addition to being detri- 
mental to the national interest 
and damaging to MI 5, en- 
danger intelligence officers 
and their families. 

In his third affidavit, filed 
last August after seeing the 
manuscript for the first time, 
Sir Robert said he was unable 


to comment on the specific 
allegations it contains, "with- 
out causing damage which it is 
the purpose of these proceed- 
ings to avoid”. MI 5 had to be 
seen to be leakproof and Mr 
Wright's disclosures, irrespec- 
tive of their content or acc- 
uracy, would impair its liaison 
with friendly security services. 

Even information which 
was apparently innocuous 



Sir Robert Armstrong arriv- 
ing at the Supreme < 


could be used to check the 
veracity of information al- 
ready in the possession of 
hostile intelligence services. 

Valuable intelligence could 
be gained about sources of 
information and the structure 
and working of the service. 

It would be helpful for 
hostile intelligence to know, 
for example, what a defector 
to Britain had told M15. It 
would then be known what 
information remained un- 
detected and which agents had 
not fallen under suspicion. 

In a fourth and final affida- 
vit. dated November 6, Sir 
Robert also said that disclo- 
sure would help hostile intelli- 
gence ascertain which sources 
could be relied upon. It would 
also ifamay internal trust and 
recruitment to MI5 and might 
encourage other ex-officers to 
make disclosures. 

Additionally, he said the 
identification of premises 
used by MIS exposed the 
service to attack. 

In the Australian Govern- 
ment affidavit, Mr Michael 
Codd, Secretary to the Cabi- 
net. said he had read Mr 
Wright's manuscript and he 
believed its publication would 
prejudice Australian security, 
and would be contrary to the 
national interest. Disclosure 
would show an inability to 
protect intelligence and could 
lead to a decrease in the 
quality of shared information 
provided to Australia by 
friendly inteHigcnce services. 

Sir Robert is expected to be 
called to give evidence today. 

Another witness for the 
British side will be a former 
MIS officer whose identity has 
been ordered by the court to 
be kept secret. 


US and China forge military accord 


The US and China, political 
adversaries for more than 
three decades and opponents 



managed, check the expansion 
of Soviet military power in the 
Far East 

“The military relationship 
has been heating up,” an 
American official said yes- 
terday and described it as a 
"basic political success”. 

Mr Edward Rowny, Presi- 
dent Reagan's chief arras 
negotiator, arrived in Peking 


From Robert Grieves, Peking 
on Sunday to brief Chinese 
officials on the results of 
recent Sino-US arms talks in 
Reykjavik, Vienna and Ge- 
neva. It was his fourth visit to 
China and his second in two 
months. 

Genera] John Wickham, the 
US Army Chief of Staff, is also 
in Peking for a week-long 
round of visits. 

Mr Rowny said he clarified 
the US position regarding 
missile reductions in the wake 
of Soviet complaints that the 
US was not living up to its 
nuclear weapons agreement 


He told the Chinese that 
reductions in American mis- 
sile defences in Europe would 
be tied to reductions m Ameri- 
can missiles in Asia. 

The presence of American 
firms at two defence shows in 
Peking, the recent visit by 
three warships to the east 
coast port of Qingdao, and the 
October 30 Sino-US agree- 
ment allowing China to buy 55 
US avionics kits for its S 8 jet 
fighter, valued at S10 million 
(£7 million) each, has but- 
tressed accords on military co- 
operation. 


Manila protesters call on Enrile to go 



Demonstrators protesting against last 
week's murder of Mr Rolando Oialia, the 
Philippines’ most prominent labour lead- 
er. They called on Mr Juan Ponce Enrile, 
the Defence Minister, to resign (Keith 
Dalton reports from Manila). 

A general strike to protest against the 
murder of the May I Trade Union 
Federation leader was generally ignored, 
except for pockets of demonstrators 
de m an din g the dismissal of Mr Enrile. 


Supporters of Mr Oialia have accused a 
military clique loyal to Mr Enrile of 
killing both the labour leader and his 
driver, Mr Leonor Alay-Ay, last Thurs- 
day. 

Yesterday scattered rallies and human 
barricades in several Manila suburbs 
disrupted traffic. 

Labour leaders, however, claimed dm 
almost 300 factories closed down. 

Observers believe the strike foiled to 


attract popular support because, with 
three-quarters of all Filipinos living 
below the poverty line, one day off work 
is a sacrifice most cannot afford to make. 

No arrests have been made in the 
Oialia killing and Mr Neptali Gonzales, 
the Justice Minister, told a press con- 
ference that there was nothing to link the 
murder with the kidnapping two days 
later of Mr Nobuyuki Wakaoji, a prom- 
inent Japanese businessman. 


Gangster grip on coal and politics 


From Michael Hamlyn 


While the mhappy formers 
iff Bihar's central districts are 
terrorized by rival armies of 
landlords and Maoists, the 
desperately poor labourers in 
the coal-rich industrial belt 
further sooth are victims of a 
different oppression. 

The coalfields round Dban- 
bad, dose to the West Bengal 
border, are ruled by a criminal 
mafia who feed off the 
sufferings of the miners, extort 
cash from the industry and 
cheat the public exchequer. 

Many of the mafia dons are 
ostensibly leaders of the coal- 
field trade unions, but they 
befit their power as “enfor- 
cers” for the (rid trade mriofl 
leaders, or as muscle for the 
private colliery owners. 

After the urines were 
nationalized in 1972, they 
moved into business for them- 
selves, obtaining lucrative 
transport contracts, some- 
times at grapomL 
Now they thrive on forcible 
trade onion subscriptions and 
on a money-te n ding business 
at extortionate rates of in- 
terest They control gambling 
and liquor rackets, just like 
the original Mafia dons of the 
1920s in the United States. 

Every ton of coal Oat moves 
through die district must pay a 
levy, sometimes in cash and 
sometimes in coal, to the mafia 
chief of each district it passes 
through. Illegal mines are 
opened and “protected’’ by the 
hoodlums. “Licences” to lift 
coal illegally and to transport 
it are issued by the gangs. 


The troubled 
state of Bihar 

Part 2 


The people exploited by 
these gangs are mostly lab- 
ourers from the lowest of all 
social groups, the formerly 
untouchable Harqans and file 
aboriginal tribespeople. Pro- 
tests liy them are ruthlessly 
put down by the dons, and even 
by the police. 

Stnng by allegations of ram- 
pant bnvlessness in the dis- 
trict, the central Government 
called for a report and recom- 
mendations. The report, sub- 
mitted six years ago, showed 
that the reason why the mafia 
flourished was because of its 
political sponsorship, by polit- 
ical parties of all coiowrs. 

The report's findings were 
explanation enough why no 
further action was taken: it 
became politically inexpedient 
to delve further. 

On his election as Chief 
Minister, the present mcmn- 
bent, Mr Kndeshwari Dubey, 
promised a crackdown on the 
mafia. Mr Dubey is a coalfield 
trade unumist who worked as a 
miner while he organized the 
labour force of the private 
colifers. 

Asa result, one mafia leader 
was removed as general sec- 
retary of the focal Congress 
Party. Two other chieftains 
were arrested. Fow prominent 
members of another gang were 
also jailed. Bridge tofl con- 


tracts of two leading dons were 
not renewed. But there, say Ms 
critics, the crackdown Ins 
ended. 

Mr Dubey is accused of 
acting in bis own political 
interest against only those 
mafia leaders who support the 
opposition Janata Party. 

“We don't deny that some of 
the mafias have entered into 
politics,” tiie Chief Minister 
said. “They have art entered 
for their political faith or for 
the service of the people. 

“I am totally against the 
mafias iaterferlaag with poli- 
tics. And we shall try to break 
their money power which they 
are utiHzhig for their criminal 
activities.” 

Mr Dubey’s adherents 
daim he is dean, hot his 
predecessor. Dr Jagammth 
Mishra, presided over a soci- 
ety which made corruption 
almost a state industry. 

In Bihar, government sa- 
vants are transferred for a fee. 
Police inquiries may be ter- 
minated for money. Public of- 
fice or membershqi of govern- 
ment commissions are recog* 
need as ways to enrichment, 
through payment for cont- 
racts. 

Criminal action has become 
the hallmark of Bihar's bas- 
tings. In 1967 Bihar witnessed 
its first cases of “booth captur- 
ing”, in which bands of thugs 
seized a polling station and 
kept out those they thought 
might cast inappropriate bal- 
lots. 

Last year's election in- 
creased incidents to 333, with 
66 shooting incidents and S3 


bombs exploded. Thirteen 
people were kitted. 

Recent elections have seen a 
number of known 
becoming members 
of the legislative assembly. By 
the time one such person 
gained respectability as a leg* 
in 1980, he had 70 
criminal acts credited to him. 

Another, tire leader off a 
landlord army, had 12 cases of 
murder and abduction regis- 
tered against him when be was 

dwtid- 

The Naxatites, aimed Mao- 
ist iwiHtnirtg, have so for con- 
fined Aar influence to extra 
parliamentary activit y, bat 
that iaflnence is undoubtedly 
mowing. A mass blockade of 
the state fegh l at u r e here in 
August organized by the 
Naxatites, showed just how 
powerful the extremist organ- 
izations had become among 
the Harijans, the lowest of all 
the Hindu classes. 

The Naxatites have been 
hunching peasant organiza- 
tions for mass agitation. A 
Farmers’ Assembly, a Fanner 
Labonr War Omndl and a 
Revolutionary Farmers' Com- 
mittee have sprung into bring,, 
although their support is 
largely among the landless 
labourers ranter than the 
peasant formers. 

For the first time the people 
oo the bottom rang of the so- 
cial ladder have begun to 
throw the richer occnpiers out 
of public pastures, or common 
fishponds, which the upper 
cartes had arrogated to them- 
selves.

War on 
drugs 
in South 
Asia 


from Our South. Asian 
Correspondent ' 


Leaders of the seven Somfa* 
Asian nations, representing' 
one-fifth of humanity, yes- 
terday ended a two-day sum- 
mit meeting by agreeing to- 
find ways of fighting 
abuse and trafficking, which is - 
a growing problem m the 1 

fpdian S1l bC OT itiT l e n *- 

But the most humane de- 
cision of the seven leaders of- 
the South Asian Association 
for Regional Co-operation 
(Saarc) was to include a senes' 
of promises about the care and 
the rights of children in their 
dosing dedaraticra. 

They endorsed the UN > 
Convention on the Rights of" 
the Child, setting the target of # 
universal immunization with- 
in the next fbetr years, univer-* 
sal primary education; ma- 
ternal and child nutrition, safe" 
_ water and adequate’ 
shelter by the year 2000. 

On drug trafficking Mr 
Rajiv Gandhi, the Indian 
Prone Minister, said in a 
dosing press conference that- 
the flow of drugs across the' 
border from Pakistan into his 1 
country was one of the causes' 
for abnormal relations be-' 
tween • them. Nevertheless, 
Pakistan was given charge of 
establishing a technical com-' 
mittee to look into the prob- 
lem and to be its first' 

chairman. 

Bilateral matters dominated' 
the meeting, with intensive 
negotiations cm the Sri Lan- 
kan ethnic crisis ' continuing 
until the last minim*. - -» 

“We do not believe there 
should be an Edam (Tamil' 
homeland) in Sri Lanka,” Mr * 
Gandhi said. "With the pack- ' 
agd that President Jaye- 
wardene has given now, we 
believe that the Tamils can 
live in peace and security.” 

Relations with Pakistan did 
not appear to improve during ■ 
the Saarc meeting. They- 
started badly, with repents oP 
Indian troop movements on- 
the border. They ended on 
another low note with Mr - 
Gandhi virtually calling Mr 
Mohammed Khan Jungo, the ' 
Pakistan Prime Minister, a 
liar. 

Mr Gandhi met Mr Junejo 
only briefly, after having kept 
the Pakistani delegation gaess- - 
ing as to whether he might - 
avoid a t8te-&-t£te with him " 
altogether. At his dosing press 
conference Mr Gandhi said 
that he had raised with Mr - 
Junejo the reports that Paki- 
stan has exploded a high- 
explosive trigger device for a 
nuclear boma ' 

“He has assured us — let me 
get his exact words,” Mr 
Gandhi said turning for a 
document to an aide. "Prime 
Minister Junejo said that the 
report that they had tested a 
nuclear trigger is ’utterly 
incorrect'. To be honest, we 
are not "utterly convinced’.” -■

It all looked terribly wonky

began to see that this is 

precisely flie nwnolitb against 

which the ride boys are 
KdriEg: the Victorian low- 
church work-ethic of an older 
generation. 

The opening sequence, fa 
which young white offenders 
shambled in for a dose of God 
at the hands of a Made gospel 
choir, promised -an fewle 
treatment which failed to 
materialize. “Since En gland 
forgot God, (he is paralyzed”, 
claimed a black minister in 
Brirton - and John Selwyn 
Gammer might well concur.

W e hardly need 
the news,- mote 
or. less constant 
these dam, of 
record paces in 
the sale-rooms for Orpen, 
Munmngs, Clausen and the 
like, to realize that an enor- 
mous revival of interest in 
British academic art from the 
first half of the 20th ceatmy is 
upon ns. One need only look 
at what is on offer in London’s 
commercial galleries, and the 
number of new galleries 
springing up with a proudly 
advertised specialization in 
“Modern British”- The as- 
tonishing thing is that there is 
so much to go round, kept in 
attics or ceHars or.the decaying 
studios of sometimes quite 
recently deceased artists. So 
mudi that it is easy to get tired 
of .the very idea of rediscov- 
eries and revaluations. Can 
they all really be so good and 

interesting? 

The answer, of course, is no, 
not all of them. But, once we 
have persuaded ourselves to 
look elsewhere than along the 
supposed high road to moct- 
ena&m, it is quite remarkable 
how much food painterly 
painting there is tobe found in 
the waits of artists labelled 
with sack mysterious initials 
as AdRJMSI, RJELA, 


and so too are 
ThreKiriTs New Tory vowdb.

Suddenly, a modem look: Arthur Hayward's fanciful selfportrait as Ef Chtzrro 


RXOJP. or N.KA.C. (The 
catalogue to one current ex- 
hibition, Silver . Beds and 
Cockle Shells, very sensibly 
appends a short glossary.) 
Have you ever heard, for 
instance, of Dowlas Stuns 
Gray or John Alfred Haggis? 

And yet here are two per- 
fectly estimable painters m a 
solid academic tradition, 
roughly contemporary (Gray 
lived from 1890 to 1959, 
Haggis fixmi 1897 to 1968), 
whose works would not dis- 
grace any reasonably conser- 
vative collection, and are 
bound to give many people a 
lot of pleasure. Both are 
having their first one-man 
London shows in a very long ' 
time (perhaps ever). Gray at 
Spink until November 26, 
Haggis at the New Kings Road 
Gallery (number 293, to be 
precise) until November 29. 

. Gray is said to have been 
Sargent’s favourite pup S, and 
one can see a relationship — 
not so much, curiously, in the 
portraits, of which mere are 
several fine examples, as in 
die more informal pictures of 
his family, his honse and his 
garden in Oapham, and es- 
pecially in the townscapes 
such as JLd Madeleine, Mar- 


Covent Garden last night] 
production of one of the 
though Eva Randov£{ 


With the early departure of' 
GabrieK Benackova from the 
title-role the only truly Czech 
element remaining in Covent 
Garden’s new production of 
Jemifa, which opened last 
night, is the mezzo-soprano 
E va Randovi. She may five in 
Stuttgart now, but she spent 
her childhood and early pro- 
fessional lift in Czecho- 
slovakia and returns regularly 
to her native country. And ter 
association with Jemifa, Jani- 
dek’s first nunor success in the 
theatre, goes back over twenty 
years. 

The role of the Kostelni&a, 
who IriBs the baby of her 
stepdaughter Jen&fa and then 
seeks forgiveness, was one 
Mine Randovk sang at the 
very start of her career. She 
reckons ' that - she must, have 
been the youngest Ko stdm Ba 
ever to appear on stage arid 
that she was none too wise st 
the time to take it on. But in 
the beginning a singer, es- . 
pedafly in a . modest provin- 
rial theatre, has to take what is 
on offer. She then dropped the 
Kostdnfeka from her rep- 
ertoire in favour of younger 
roles for a coupteof decades, 
although she did record it for 
Charles Mackerras. 

The role in German par- 
lance is hochdramatackSDa 
sits in the crossover ter ritory 
between soprano and mezzo.

Voices make a contribution 
cut of all proportion to. their 
extent is ibe last- two move- 
ments of Mahler’s . “Resir- 
rectien" Symphony, where he. 
had seed of them to make 
explicit mWds what other- 
wise he sought only in n at* 
verbal expression at the 
outset, : The awakening to 
“Urhcht” in the contralto solo 
of the fourth mowmem fights 
the beanos of a return in tire 
choral finale from - his earlier 
dark world *jho longer sepa- 
rated by spaas hrid time . .

Aray Shuard was the readent

den, Astrid Varnay once 
reigned at the Met and; in 

Czechoslovakia itself there 

was Nadezfada Kniplovfi. Eva 
Randovfi now ledums that 
she is ready for the part but, 
probably out of deference to 
Ashley Putnam, who has re- 
placed BenackovS, refuses to 
claim that it is mime im- 
portant than Jenflfh herself 
But -she does point out that in 
Czechoslovakia Jemifa & not 
Jen&fa but Jqi pastorkyM — 
Her Stepdaughter. That may 
be indication enough, but it is 
known that JauSEek m 
constructing his several drafts 
of the fiteoto did somewhat 
blacken the character of the 
KosteIni(3ca fromthe original 
play and novel while whiten- 
ing a little that of Jenftfe. 

- Covenl Garden’s produc- 
tion Is being staged by Yuri 
Lyubimov, one of the fieriest 
and most controversial old 
director-lions. But Ins view of 
Jeh^a islikely tobe a Russian 
rather than a Czech one. 
Randovri says that he is an 
• “inspiring man to work with”. 

“Lyubimov from the start

Tedd Joselson ; 
Elizabeth Hall%;; 

It .was disappointing that the 
American pianist Tedd Josel- 


tigues, from his solitary paint- 
ing trip abroad in 1923. There 
is a verve and skill and feeling 
for atmosphere here which go 
well beyond the merely deriv- 
ative. Haggis' led a more 
wandering existence, pending 
some years in Australia and, 
later, studying in Paris. His 
style is somewhat influenced 
by I mpr e ssi onism in the vir- 
tuoso treatment of light, es- 
pecially on water, but foe 
foundation of all his work is a 
very crisp, English sort of 
draughtsmanship and a gentle 
pastoral vision of life. No 
tremendous revelation, but an 
artist whom, on the strength of 
this show, it will be veiry good 
to know and recognize. 

T he interest is re< 
infbrced and ex- 
tended in two mixed 
shows at galleries we 
regularly -associate 
with foepenod and foe range 
of styles: Silver Bells and 
Cockle Shells at Whitfoni and 
Hughes , until Saturday, and 
Irish Renascence, at Pyms 
Gallery until November 29. 

Whitford and Hughes are 
partfenZsiiy strong on British 
Impressionists and Ptist-Im- 
pressioniSts, who, if they did 


not begin as academically 
respectable m the 1890s and 
1900s. very soon got there as 
the New English Art Club, 
originally a dissident organ- 
ization, settled into a sensible 
middle age of friendliness with 
foe Academy. Recent years 
have in any case seen a change 
in our perspective on repres- 
entational, and specifically 
realistic, art of the inter-war 
period, as non-Paris-based 
groups like the Neue Sach- 
lichkeit in Germany have 
proved upwardly mobile. And 
it is very interesting to look 
again, in this context, at 
painters like Dod Proctor, 
with her cool-toned, meticu- 
lous nudes like Light Sleep, or 
Arthur Hayward, repnsented 
with one of his fhnaful self- 
portraits in exotic attire, El 
Charro. Not long ago these 
would have seemed merely 
passe; now they look amaz- 


ingly modem.

We know that the Irish were 
in certain respects at this, 
period more enterprising than 
the En glish. Pyms’ recent 
exhibition of Mary Swanzy 
provided a vivid demonstra- 
tion of this, and further ev- 
idence, if .needed, may be 
found in the Irish Renascence- 


decided to cut foe action off 
from Czech fife and turn it 
into an international drama. 
There is certainly no smell of 
Moravia. - 

Perhaps behind these re- 
marks is a sense of regret, 
because Eva Randovfr knows 
the smell °f Moravia well, 
quite apart from the feet that it 
was foe province in 1 which 
.Janfifiek was borii. It was in 
Ostrava, a town in northern 
Czechodovakia dose to the 
Polish frontier, that she sang 
- her first operatic roles, induct- 
ing the KostefaiiCka. And it 
was Ostrava, together with erf 
course Brno, that started 
championing Jandfiefc before

show, notably is the works of 
Maixue Jeflett and Evie Hone 
(better known for her stained 
glass), who were to Gkdzes 
very much what Swanzy was 
to Delaunay. But most of foe 
material in the show is of a 
more conservative cast. 

At foe Fine Art Society we 
might expect to find foe 
Scottish equivalent, in the 
work of foe Glasgow Boys and 
such, in feci some of it is 
included in foe Painting in 
Scotland 1800-1930 snow, 
which continues until Friday 
to offer a sort of informal 
chronological foiiow-up to 
Painting in Scotland: The 
Golden Age, already reviewed 
from the Edinburgh Festival 
and now at the Tate until 
January 4. But most of the 
gallery is occupied with two 
□ew shows, both on until 
December 6, Frits Thaulow 
and Savilious and Wedgwood. 

Thaulow (1847-1 906) was a 
Norwegian landscapist who 
travelled extensively, had 
considerable influence on the 
turn-of-tbe-century Scottish 
painters and incidentally, as a 
dose friend of Monet, was 
respo usable for his painting 
trip to Norway. Though 
Thaulow was something of a 
mentor to Munch, his own 
work is soberly situated in a 
son of international early- 
impressionist tradition, gen- 
erally attractive but at its most 
personal when depicting snow i 
scenes or capturing the elusive 
effects of moonrise in North- 
era France. 

The Ravihous exhibition 
downstairs provides an in- 
teresting footnote to the 
Redfem’s fascinating Design 
show, reminding ns again how 
much of the best commercial 

awrf industrial fa this 

country between the wars was 
the work of artists more 
usually associated with the 
Fine Aits. The centrepiece is 
an extensive fosplay of Eric 
Ravflious’s designs for Wedg- 
wood china, to mark foe 
publication of the Dalrymple 
Press’s dim but resplendent 
volume Ratilious and Wedg- 
wood, a complete record of the 
collaboration, exquisitely pro- 
duced (£54). But there is also 
related work by Enid Marx, 
Edward Bawden, Maxwell 
Armfield and others, all dem- 
onstrating the kind of mind- 
expansion which may result 
when lofty talents are applied 
to humble purposes.

itself There was a theatre 
playing opera to hand and she 
started going there when she 
was eight And she will return 
to Usti next month for an 
anniversary concert What she 
learnt in those early years, she 
believes, was a competitive 
spirit 

: “We were brought up to 
compete against one another 
in everything: music, school 
lessons, sport You strived to 
be best whether it was at piano 
or at swimming. (She gave up 
piano feiriy earfy on, but was a 
Czech; national swimming 
champion.] I’m deeply grate- 
ful for that I ti»nk it strength- 
ens you in all ways — 
physically, mentally.” Now 
that would scarcely please 

son drew a comparatively 
sparse audience for his Sun- 
day afternoon recital He is a 
robust daring player — strong 
in mind and sinew — and 
certainly worth two hours of 
anyone’s time. 

He made his name in the big 
Romantic war-horses, work- 
ing his way back to foe Mozart 
repertoire, he now increasingly 
favours. This retrospective ap- 
proach was evident in Moz- 
art's Sonata in D, K3II. No 
limpid stream, this: Joselson 
quested continually, varying* 
weight, distribution from bar 
to bar, accelerating hungrily 
into the Scarlatti-styie figura- 
tion, projecting even the 
Andante's gentle melody with 
a sharp-toned sense of drama. 

- To watch him is to sense an 
enormous physical as well as 
mental effort. It is not, I 
think, affectation .that . his 
torso continues to shudder for 
some seconds , after a move- 
ment's end, or that several 
times in Prokofiev's Sixth 
Sonata he rose completely off 
the stool to slam foe . foil 
body- weight on some shock 
droid.- 


Brent Council’s Education 
Department. 

After a brief spcD with foe 
Frankfurt Opera Randovfi be- 
came associated with Stutt- 
gart, where she has specialized 
in the German-East European 
repertory with excursions into 
Verdi “I need to sing more 
Verdi In foe West they type- 
cast you: once you have sung 
Kostelni&ka every house 
wants you as KostemiCka and 
nothing else.” And a question 
on which role changed her 
career provokes the reply: 
“The first I ever sang — EboK 
[Don Carlo] in Ostrava. That 
was number one and it is still 
the most rewarding." There is 
a healthy streak of defiance in 
toe mezzo from Kotin. { 

This magnificent work de- 
mands such commitment, of 
course, and Josdson’s hard- 
driven, hugely accented ap- 
proach - particularly to foe 
outer movements — had rare 
excitement. One has heard 
performances that better em- 
phasize foe sardonic knife- 
edge in die music, rather than 
the brute sledge-hammer. But 
Joselson did at feast scale (he

that disturbingly dark-toned 
waltz. 

That he played Schubert's 
“Wanderer* Fantasy in much 
the same manner indicates 
that be is not a pianist who 
cares much for received wis- 
doms. This was savage, coura- 
geous music-making. More 
caution would perhaps have 
dimrnated some of the octave 
“dingers” in the final section, 
but would also have caged a 
free spirit that should be 
encouraged to roam where it 

win.

Swan Lake 
New Theatre, Cardiff 


The Royal Ballet’s two com- 
panies have both acquired 
American principal dancers 
tills season. Cynthia Harvests 
arrival at Covent Garden is 
followed by Joseph CipoQa 
joining Sadler’s WeQs Royal 
Ballet. His reputation came 
before him because, as the first 
white leading man in the 
mainly Mack Dance Theatre 
of Harlem, he has already 
been admired by London aoefi- 
ences daring two Coiiseam 
seasons. 

Qpolla's d€bnt with his new 
company was on Saturday 

night Jn ParHiffj d a HO ft g hfe 

first complete Swan Lake (one 
act only was in the Harlem 
repertory): a pretty big role 
and — to make things harder — 
on a fairly small stage. There 
was Btde room to let f ; »gs rip 
during his solos, but all his 
dancing was strong, clean and 
nicely finished. More im- 
portant, given the change to a 
company ef different tra- 
ditions and style, is that his 


manner all fitted into Peter 
Wright's production as weQ as 
his partner, Sberflyn Ken- 
nedy, who has been dancing in 
it ever since the premiere fibre 
years ago. 

At the matinte, the leads 
were taken by two other 
dancers who have came to 
them only during the present 
tour. Iain Webb, like Cip Oa, 
takes a very romantic view of 
Siegfried (both men make 
convincing the grief at a 
father’s death from which they 
are won by Odette’s love). | 
Webb’s dancing is attractively 
light and easy, every move- 
ment composed with an eye to 
the balance of pose or gesture. 
Mayako YosJuda, dancing 
with him, was precipitated into 
the ballerina part because a 
colleague was mtwelL She 
needs more time to develop 
expressiveness in it, but she 
already dances with strength 
and a pleasant sensitivity in 
the use of her hands daring 
Act n to hint at the troubling 
of a swan's feathers. 

It was encouraging to leant 
that the entire Cardiff week 
was sold out before it opened. 
Swan Lake is given again this 
week at Oxford and next week 
at Eastbourne.

coupled with a willingness to 
indulge the more eccentric 
tastes of local stars, produces a 
rather extraordinary repertory 
at the Gran Teatxe del Liceu. 
The current season has 
opened with the Faggioni 
production of Don Quichotte 
from the Fenice, which is to be 
followed by the Neapolitan El 
capvespre dels aCus (for 
wagnerianismos is still strong 
in this city) and Gluck's 
Armide mounted for Mont- 
serrat Caballe, who later in the 
season will be presenting her- 
self still more curiously as 
Sappho in the Pacini opera. 

Don Quichottehss of course 
a certain local relevance, 
though the proudly nationalist 
Catalans would probably deny 
they had any more connection 
with Cervantes than with 
Massenet: the choice of this 
opera might even have been 
influenced by such a feeling. 
Piero Faggioni, however, is 
concerned to expose what he 
can of Cervantes within Mas- 
senet, or at feast to make foe 
opera more complicated than 
it quite feds comfortable 
being. 

He opens the evening with 
the ruminative prelude to the 
fifth act, which accompanies a 
mime of Don Quixote leafing 
through dusty folios and smil- 
ing wistfully at his armour. 
The propped-up books look 
ratter like tombstones, and 
there is a sense of Quixote 
being already at the point of 
death (indeed we return to this 
scene when he is, in the now 
very short final act). Most of 
what happens is the wishful 
thinking of a dying man, and 
takes place largely in grey 
costumes and decors, under 
silvery illumination suggest- 
ing a dream play by moonlight 

This atmosphere is nicely

The Girls in the 
Big Picture 
Prill Hall 

The Charabanc Theatre Com- 
pany of Belfast is to be 
congratulated on at long last 
emerging from its contem- 
porary, urban preoccupations 
with a play set in a small 
market town in the early 
1960s. Nicely observed 
though it is, the new work pays 
the penalty for ploughing a 
safe furrow — the suspicion 
that we have seen it all 
somewhere before. 

Devised by the company 
and written by Marie Jones 
(whatever that precisely 
means), foe piece conjures a 
rural limbo of low horizons 
and long courtships, in which 
the fore-monthly “basket- 
tea” — at which the single men 
bid for the prepared food 
baskets of foe single women, 
with whom they then dance 

the whole of the evening - 

assumes the status of a major 
event 

The girls of the title are 
three friends in their thirties 
looking down from their shelf 
with growing dismay. Two of 
them run a decidedly under- 


sustained by most of the 
“sculptures" by Giovanni 
Gianese. It seems a bit un- 
necessary that Don Quixote 
should have the front half of 
Pegasus to ride about on at the 
beginning and end of foe main 
action, but his Rosinanie, and 
Sancho Panza’s donkey, are 
wonderfully miserable crea- 
tures. The windmills too, 
though they do not look at all 
like Spanish ones, are imagi- 
natively supplied by shadows 
and by rotating sails at each 
side of the stage. 

All this gives a strong 
impression of toe opera as 
coming out of the hero's head, 
but at the same time it is being 
presented very consciously as 
a theatrical performance for 
foe chorus, dressed as an 
audience of 1910. Faggioni's 
point is that the bourgeoisie, 
in summer whites, re main as 
onlookers (they spend most of 
the time on a high balcony at 
the back) while foe rougher 
elements are ready to join in- 
But, quite apart from its 
triteness, this is an idea that 
could be applied to any stage 
work, and it hardly has much 
to contribute here. The best 
that can be said is that it does 
not get in foe way loo much. 

Nothing at all gets in the 
way of the two central perfor- 
mances, which completely 
dominate, foe musical aspect 
of the production. Ruggero 
Raimondi's voice, strong, . 
fine-edged and gritty like 
carborundum, is an excellent 
instrument for conveying the 
wild, blinkered enthusiasm of 
Don Quixote, and tbe r in- 
security. Gabriel Bacquier 
provides a Sancho of contrast- 
ing bluff roundedness, though 
rising to a iwwerful lyricism at 
the end of the fourth act The 
Dulcinea is the young Colom- 
bian mezzo Martha Senn, who 
projects a confident joy, even 
though there is still a sharp 
disparity between her bright 
upper voice and smoky lower 
register. The orchestra, under 
the French conductor Alain 
Guingal, come most fully 
alive m the dances.

The biggest picture in foeir

tures. Predictably, the dead- 
ening ties of habit prove too 
strong, and by foe dose foe

Andy Hinds's production 
convincingly evokes the de- 
pressing pettiness of this set- 
ting, where awkward pauses .

SPECTRUM 


The key to the door of No 10 


O n Britain’s electoral 
register there are 
6.428.200 18 to 24- 
year-olds, some 16 
per cent of the total 
electorate. They 
form a constituency which could 
settle the next election. But how 
are they to be wooed? Labour 
plumps for an upbeat image, while 
a Tory minister has said: “What 
we need is some top-heavy 
coalminer's daughter.” 

Traditionally, the parties have 
ten campaigning among the young 
to their respective youth wings. 
Each party has two youth 
branches, a student branch and a 
constituency association branch. 
In the Labour Party, for instance, 
the former is constituted by the 
National Organisation of Labour 
Students, and the latter by the 
Young Socialists. 

Now that this section of the 
electorate has become so im- 
portant each party's youth wings 
are being faded into the back- 
ground, as their centralised elec- 
toral machines crank up. The 
recently elected Conservative 
Youth Committee, for instance, 
contains no representatives horn 
the National Young Conser- 
vatives (NYCs), and the 
controversial Federation of 
Conservative Students (FCS) has 
just been disbanded. 

It is the left, rather than the 
right, which has been setting the 
pace. The Labour Party launched 
Red Wedge in June of last year, 
attempting to attract young voters 
through the use of pop performers 
like Billy Bragg and Paul Weller. 
Lynne Franks, formerly one of 
Labour's PR agents who pro- 
moted Red Wedge, says: “The 
Labour Party reached the Eighties 
and discovered pop as a way of 
reaching young voters of the 
fiiture." 

Others, however, are less enthu- 
siastic about Labour’s exploita- 


The Sixties baby boom has produced an enormous new electorate for the Eighties. Toby Young and Roland Rudd 
assess how the major parties are gearing up to woo this powerful new constituency of more than six million voters 


tion of youth culture to attract 
young voters. According to Steven 
Pope, deputy editor of New Social- 
ist: “The Labour Party didn’t have 
the faintest idea what was going 
on. It was youth that took the 
initiative — the party just cynically 
used it to give themselves a gloss.” 

“Whenever the political parties 
make any attempt to enter into 
dialogue with young people," 
observes Mark Jones, associate 
editor of Campaign, "it ends up 
sounding like a Radio One agony 
aunt phone-in programme.” 

There is nothing particularly 


new about political parties relying 
on pop performers to boost then- 
image with the young. Harold 
Wilson nominated the Beatles for 
OBEs for precisely that reason. 
“Before that. Prime Ministers had 
never been interested in pop 
stars,” comments columnist Brian 
Walden, who was a Labour MP at 
the time. “It was an important 
innovation then, very typical of 
the great party manager at his 
best.” 

Nevertheless, the apparent suc- 
cess of the Labour Party in wooing 
the IS to 24-year-old electorate 


presents a striking contrast to the 
Conservative's youth rally in 1983 
when, in conjunction with PR 
man Bev Walker, the party 
wheeled on a number of show 
business personalities. Kenny 
Everett’s comment — “let's bomb 
Russia” — was received with so 
much enthusiasm by Young 
Conservatives that the whole 
event became a major source of 
embarrassment to the 
Government 

More recently, Neil Kirin ock 
introduced a new dement into 
Labour’s campaign by attacking 


vative Party 1 
“anti-young”. Certainly, die To-, 
ries have an enormous credibility' 
problem among young voters, 
having foiled to stem rising un- 
employment among school leav- 
en. and cutting student grants. 

According to Barry Delaney, of 
the advertising agency Delaney, 
Fletcher and Delaney: I There was 

years when it wasconsic/ared'c^c 
to declare yourself for Mrs 
Thatcher. But Live Aid and Sport 
Aid have put an end to that” 

With all the media coverage of 


heroin addiction, inner-city 
deprivation, and child-abuse, 
there is a danger that young 
people, being too young to remem- 
ber the “winter of discontent” 
under Labour a decade ago, will 
see seven years of Thatcherism as 
having brought diem a series of 
short sharp, shocks. 

The Alliance, on the other band, 
has a "street credibility” problem 
— they are the least fashionable of 
the three political groupings. As 
Danny Fmklestein, the 24-year- 
old former chair of the Young 
Social Democrats put it: “We have 


yj- . »• -<■ 


John Bercow’s office at 
Conservative Party head- 
quarters used to be a broom 
cupboard. It is still used to 
store bin-liners. Yet until last 
week this unlikely setting was 
the headquarters of die 
Federation of Conservative 
Students (FCS), and Beicow 
was its 23-year-old President. 

“I'll stay on as an adviser to 
the Conservative Collegiate 
Forum, which is replacing the 
FCS. Quite honestly, I won't 
be sorry to see the back of this 
place. 

“We won't be ignoring our 
members, now that the FCS 
has ceased to be. They'll all be 
affiliated to the Forum and 111 
be «™ding them our aews- 
tetters. I'm sad that the party 
chairman has abolished as. 
but be had to do it Our nest 
has been soiled by a few 
recalcitrant individuals.” 

The decision to disband tire 
Federation was the latest step 
in the Conservatives' attempt 
to dean up their image among 
young voters. 

Last month, the Conser- 
vatives set np a “youth 
committee” a small think- 
tank chaired by the Transport 
Minister, John Moore. He has 
managed to attract several 
youth specialists on to his 
group, known inside Conser- 



to make do with avenue cred.” 

Among 18 to 24-year old voters, 
the Alliance foils to pick up 
defectors from either of the other 
two parties. According to Barry 
Delaney. “Young people have 
traditionally attached themsdves 
to radical causes. If they become 
disill usioned with the Conser- 
vative Party they tend to swing 
straight over to Labour, and vice 
versa. The Affiance is simply not 
well placed to pick up defectors 
Rom either party in this age 

group.” 

like the other two parties, the 
Alliance regards its ability to 
appeal to young voters as the add 
test of its communication skills. 
They are assembling a group of 
people under the auspices of Nik 
Alexander, foe director of the 
Virgin Design Clinic, who will 
attempt to appeal to young people 
in a youth medium. And 
yesterday's appointment of 
advertising man David Abbott as 
the Alliance advertising director 
reflects the concern over its poor 
standing with the young. 

B ob Geldof is claimed 
by foe SDP as a 
supporter, thoiuh he 
has not confirmed 
this, and the biggest 
SDP celebrity so for is 
John Cleese, who appea red in a 
television commeiriaL Irrespec- 
tive ofhow clever each of the party 
ca m p ai g ns is, however, it ought to 
be borne in mind that, even after 
they've signified a preference, the 
political allegiance of this volatile 
constituency cannot be taken for 
granted. 

“They are the joker m foe 
pack,” says Brian Gosschalk, head, 
of political research at MORL 
“their turn-out can’t be taken for 
granted, many of them have never 
voted before, but they could be 
crucial. They are notoriously diffi- 
cult to pin down.” 


vative headquarters as foe 
“Yap Committee”. 

And some more glamorous 
people have been brought in, 
like Debbie Moore, loonier of 
Pineapple Studios, and Miles 
Copeland, manager of the 
Police. Sportswomen Suzanne 
Dandoand Shanoo Davies, as 
well as Bev Be van, the drum- 
mer from the Electric Light 
Orchestra are also known to 
be interested. 

Bat the youth committee is 
just as remarkable for its 
omissions — Shirley Stotfer, 
Director of Youth in Central 
Office, has not been included, 
nor have either Jane Stott or 
Mark Worral, her assistants. 

Mote important, however, is 
the exclusion of the NYCs. 
The reason is that the YCs are 
extremely “wet” and opposed 
to several Government 
policies. 

The Young Conservatives 
may foil in with foe party 
orthodoxy, now that the FCS 
has been removed, tint there is 
little prospect of Richard 
Fuller, their chairman, being 
asked on to the youth commit- 
tee. 

The committee is expected 
to come op with several initia- 
tives to attract young voters, 
including de-regulation of the 
airwaves. 


CONSERVATIVE COLLE- 
GIATE FORUM (CCFk 
Chairman: Peter Morrison, 
deputy-chairman of the 
Conservative Party. 
Membership: National 
committee of 20, hand-picked 
by Monism, unlike FCS 
committee which was elected. 
But it is Intended that the 
14.000 former FCS members 
win be affiliated. 

Finance: FCS used to get 
£30,000 a year from Tory Cen- 
tral Office. CCFs budget 
not known yet 
Pofifical allegiance: Given 
that the FCS was abolished be- 
cause its party allegiance 
could not be guaranteed, the 
CCF is bound to follow the 
party line. 

YOUNG CONSERVATIVES: 
Chahman: Richard Fuller. 
Membership: Official es- 
timate is 30,000. 

Finance: Central Office will 
not disclose how much Is given 
to the YCs but senior YCs 

19^2-84 forced them to set 
up their own trust fond. 
Campaigns: YCs aim to win 
over young people and cam- 
paign for their interests in- 
side the party. 

Poetical aflegisnee: YCs are 
"wet", backing Peter Walker’s 
■‘pragmatic Toryism." Rich- 
ard Fuller blames the Right for 
his party's low standing 
with the young. 


“We're very proad of foe work 
we’ve done he/e,” says Sally 
Morgan, the 24-year-oM stu- 
dent coordinator off the Labour 
Party's youth campaign. “Un- 
like in the Conservatives, 
there is considerable coopera- 
tion between foe different 
youth wings here. We're all 
firmly committed to getting 
Kinsock into No 10.” 

The headquarters of the 
National Organisation of La- 
bour Students, where Sally 
works, is far larger than John 
Bercow’s in the Conservative 
Party. As many as seven 
people at a time work there, 
something which could only be 
repeated in Bercow’s office 
during a game of sardines. 

“Having the patronage of 
BQly Bragg, Paul Weller and 
Jerry Hammers,” says Sally, 
“has been an enormous boost 
to our campaign. Red Wedge 
(the pop stars' collective which 
has spearheaded Labour's 
campaign) has ambled us to 
reach lots of young people who 
wouldn’t otherwise be in- 
terested in politics.” 

Labour has made a remark- 
able turn-around in gaining 
the support of foe majority of 
foe I8r to 24-year-old constit- 
uency. In 1983 they polled a 
derisory 33 per cent; now, 
according to foe recent 


Tuner/MORI surrey, they en- 
joy the support of 49 per cent 

Though Red Wedge is 
hailed as a success by all 
concerned. Labour's standing 
among foe young was rising 
from the 1983 km before Red 
Wedge was formed and has 
added only 2 pa- cent since. 

However, it has been foe 
apparent success of Red 
Wedge which has moved the 
other two parties to action. 
“Central Office is casting 
about like crazy for some top- 
heavy coat-miner’s daughter to 
take on BOly Bragg,” Tory 
John Biffen aid recently. 

Labour has the advantage off 
a particularly cooperative 
youth group in the form of 
NOI£, which is my sympa- 
thetic towards Nefl Banach. 
And they have some influence 
over the 1,250,000 students 
affiliated to the National 
Union of Students. 

But before Inborn draws too 
much comfort, a cautionary 
note ought to be struck. In foe 
last four weeks of the 1983 
election campaign, the com- 
bined efforts of foe Conser- 
vative and Alliance's electoral 
machines managed to reduce 
Labour's standing among 18 to 
24-year-olds from 45 per cent 
to 33. So the fickleness of the 
age group must worry Labour. 


NATIONAL 
ORGANISATION OF 
LABOUR STUDENTS

Member sh ip: Claims 
10,000. NOLS has effective 
control of the National 
Union of Students' member-

Simon Lems, 27-year-old

foe SDP. “Thafs a pejorative 
term, isn't it? 

“Without a doubt the SDP 
hasn't been patting its mes- 
sage across as effectively as it 
could have been,” he says. 
Lewis cat his political teeth 
working for Senator Bill Brad- 
ley in Washington, and he has 
a solid background in PR. 
“What we need is a few 
snappy captions which encap- 
sulate our policies. •

It is mitikeiy, however, that 
even Lewis's media savvy can 
turn round foe fortunes of the 
Alliance, which is trailing 
third amoug die young. 

The Alliance got off to a 
shaky start in the colleges, 
because of a split between 
Union of Liberal Students and 
foe SDP Students. But now 
there is more cooperation.

much less active than their 
partners in wooing die youth

Gunning for the godfathers 


Three New York 


crime bosses are 


waiting to hear the 


verdict in the first 


trial to accept the 


Mafia's existence 



Joseph Bonanno, they say, is 
hearing footsteps. The 82- 
year-old former Mafia boss 
preferred cot to testify against 
his erstwhile henchmen and 
chose instead to go to prison 
for contempt of court. But 
even in the silence of his cell 
Bonanno thinks be can detect 
the approach of the assassin. 

Bonanno" s mistake was his 
vanity. In the years which 
followed the romantic portrait 
of the Mafia in The Godfather, 
New York’s racketeers be- 
came more audacious. In 1983 
Bonanno published an auto- 
biography. A Man of Honor ; 
about his years with the mob. 
Rudolph Gi uliani, senior dis- 
trict attorney for Manhattan, 
realized that Bonanno's 
disclosure of the existence of 
the Commission, the Mafia's 
ruling body, opened the way 
for a new style of prosecution. 
.And last week the jury went 
out to consider its verdict in a 
trial which has been described 
as the most significant in US 
mob history. 

When The Godfather was 
being filmed on life streets of 
New York 15 years ago, the 
producers agreed to delete the 
word “Mafia” from the script 
in return for the co-operation 
of the Iialian-American Civil 
Rights League. Such reticence 
was typical of American atti- 
tudes to the organization. 
Certainly lawyers were careful 
to avoid the word; if it slipped 
out in a courtroom the defen- 
dants were apt to get a 
ptistrial. Attorney General^ jn 


Family mem Persico (left), Salerno trad Coraflo 


successive governments or- 
dered the Justice Department 
to ban the use of the word. But 
the present bearing has turned 
all that on its head. 

The Mafia is big business. 
Last year its turnover was said 
to be S26 billion. Its centre of 
power is New York where 
each of foe five dans is 
independently more powerful 
than those which role the 
underworld in other cities. 

The present trial has 
brought the leaders of three of 
them to face charges of mur- 
der. loan sharking ami a $2 
million extortion scheme. The 
key figures, “Fat” Tony Sa- 
lerno, aged 75, Tony “Ducks" 
Coraflo, 73, and “Junior” 
Persico. 53, have been in- 
dicted as the leaders of the 
Genovese, Lucbese and Co- 
lombo families. 

Prosecutors had also 
planned on foe presence of 
Paul Castellano, the boss of 
the fifth clan, foe Gambinos — ■ 
the most powerful of all US 
Mafia families. But he was 
gunned down in a sensational 
Thirties-style shoot-out out- 
side a Manhattan steak house 
last year. Suspicion immedi- 
ately fell on his successor. 
John Gotti, at present on trial 
across foe river in East Brook- 
lyn for murder. 

The two trials are the fruit 
of a painstaking and at times 
hazardous four-year investiga- 
tion conducted jointly by the 
police and the FBL The 


evidence has relied heavily on 
audio and video tapes of 
conversations between the 
Mafia bosses. The willingness 
of Mafiosi to turn informer 
was a key factor in the 
investigation. Traditionally 
the Mafia has been protected 
by its omertd (wall of silence) 
which was rooted in family 
loyalty and fear. But key 


mobsters who bad been ar- 
rested on drugs and other 
charges were prepared to be- 
come police spies. 

There were several reasons 
for this. One was that they 
feared a Mafia reprisal But 
perhaps most importantly, 
many of the traditional bonds 
of their Sicilian heritage have 
bro ken down. Tire new 
generation of recruit is more 
thoroughly Americanized; 
family loyalty is not so strong, 
and they have less respect for 
their elders. 

As the status of American 
Italians continues to rise —the 
New York State governor is 
now from that background — 
so, too, does the number of 
people of Italian extraction 
who regard the existence of the 
Mafia as a slur on their imag e

T he new puffball 
skirts are reviving 
the spirit of Schiapa- 
relli. Frivolous, flirty 
and fim is the story 
of this season's party dresses. 
It is a message that the 
irrepressible “Schiap”, dariing 
of the 1930s, would have 
understood. Elsa Sdnaparem 
launched her Shocking per-' 
fume on the fashion wond SO 
years ago. Its botfly shaped 
like a curvy torso, its erotic 
packaging and sensual scent 
•awnmed up the provocative 
style of the designer who took 
over Paris in the 1930s. 

Sctriapareffi’s ideas were 
sent out Hke shock waves. She 
made a black and white 
sweater with trompeJ'oeil 
skeletal bones picked out on 
the flout. Her arcus collection 
of ebullient embroideries was 
shown on a troupe of acro- 
batic models who swung on 
ladders outride die windows 
of her salon in the Place 
Vendfane. Into a fashio n 
world weaned on beige or 
Wade, rite threw splashes of 
brilfiani colour and especially 
the hot rose that has been 
called “shocking pink” ewer 
after. •

Hush-hush 

holiday 

Worried by a 15 per cent (all in 
tourism over the first eight 
months of this year, the South 
African Tourism Board has em- 
barked on a sneaky campaign to 
woo back holidaymakers. Eschew- 
mg the sort of media blitz that 
accompanied British Airways' free 
holidays for Americans a few 
months ago. the board asked 
South African residents for names 
mid addresses of friends and 
relatives around the world. The 
plea produced a list of 150,000 
names, from which 150 (34 of 
them in Britain) have been se- 
lected for a free holiday in South 
Africa. The rest have been sent 
price lists and a letter from the 
board extolling South Africa and 
swiping at “the biased and adverse 
publicity that has been dissemi- 
nated against us in the media". 
This, perhaps, explains the curious 
derision to keep the stunt hush- 
hush. 

• The Business Study Group, a 
society of 500 Christian business- 
men, is doing battle with Mammon ,

Museum piece 

James Joyce's granason has cut 
Dublin's Joyce Tower Museum 
out of his wilL From his Paris 
home. Stephen Joyce tells me that 
while he welcomes the museum's 
existence and its siting at 
Sandy cove (where Ulysses opens), 

' he regards its sale of items such as 
Bloom's Lemon Soap and a Tower 
Key as “ludicrous commercial 
exploitation". Selling such gim- 
mickry casts doubt m his mind 
about the soundness of the 
museum's finances. Stephen also 
accuses the museum of breaking 
an agreement to make no further 
comment about last year's row 
over an attempt to sell Joyce's 
death mask. Stephen Joyce's de- 
rision means that the museum will 
not inherit an Augustus John 
drawing of Joyce, a ring worn by 
Joyce, a necklace given by Joyce to 
his wife, a letter to him from his 
father, and a poem written on 
Stephen's birth. The museum was 
making no comment yesterday. 

Liberal portion 

David Steel has received in the 
mail a most unsavoury gift from 
an aggrieved member of the 
public: a school dinner. Carefully 
wrapped in c ling-film, it com- 
prises a cheese sandwich, a three- 
by-two-inch piece of quiche and a 
miserly square of sponge cake. 
The parent whose son brought 
home the goodies is outraged at 
the quality and quantity of the 
cuisine. Steel plans to pass the 
food parcel on to his education 
spokesman, gourmet Clement 
Freud.

Livewire 

No sooner has student politics 
been saved from the FCS than 
news reached me that the National 
Union of Students' Blackpool 
conference next month will have a 
dalek as a delegate. Metallurgy 
postgraduate Adam Gilchrist, 
campaigning as the alien from Dr 
Who, got the highest vote ever 
recorded in NUS delegation elec- 
tions at Birmingham University 
last week. From inside his home- 
built dalek, constructed to the 
original BBC specifications, he 
advocates “the destruction of 
everything in the world" — but 
particularly poor facilities for the 
disabled. He makes the point that 
anywhere he cannot get as a dalek 
will be just as impenetrable to 
someone in a wheelchair.

Cook’s tour 

John Wells, the humourist who 
rode to fame in the satirical Sixties 
and now, in the easily-pleased 
Eighties, is best known for his 
Denis Thatcher impersonations, 
entered the depths of middle-age 
on Sunday. To celebrate his 50th 
birthday he held a lavish, three

at his spacious London home, 
each room boasting celebrities 
from Michael Foot to Spike

many hours party-making spent

Iran: will the right man quit? 


by Charles Krauthammer 


Washington 

A few weeks after Lord Carrington 
resigned as Foreign Secretary over 
the Argentine takeover of the 
Falkland*, an aide of President 
Reagan passed around a piece of 
paper at a senior staff meeting. 
.Alluding to the fret that Alexander 
Haig had once called Carrington a 
“duplicitous bastard", the note 
read: “Duplicitous Bastard Re- 
signs on Principle: A Model." 

In America, we cannot get even 
our sweetest bumblers to resign. 
We have no model, no tradition of 
principled resignation. Now, be- 
cause of the Iranian affair, there is 
talk of leave-taking. Bui, as usual, 
we cannot get It right. The wrong 
man is thinking of resigning. 

The wrong man is the Secretary 
of State. George Shultz. Spear- 
carrier for the administration’s 
anti-terrorist policy, Shultz is 
embarrassed. He has rounded on 
the Europeans for malting a 
separate peace with terrorist 
states; assured the Arab League 
that the US is not supporting Iran 
in its war with Iraq. All the while, 
the National Security Council has 
been engaged with Iran in an 
arms-for-hosiages exchange. 

The right man for resigning is 
the National Security Council 
chief. John Poindexter. He now 
admits that he made "a mis- 
calculation" about whom he could 


trust in Iran. (The mullahs have a 
way of driving Americans to 
understatement. President Carter 
called the Desen One fiasco an 
“incomplete success".) If someone 
does resign, it shouldn't be the 
man who pushed the right policy, 
but the man who pushed the 
wrong one. 

How wrong? Let me count the 
ways. Even if you cave in and 
decide to buy hostages, how can 
you possibly consent to buy them 
retail, one at a time? When the 
Israelis made the worst hostage 
trade in history — 1,150 terrorists 
for three soldiers — at least they 
got all their boys at once. 

The administration cover story 
for the new Iranian affair is that 
the real policy was not buying 
hostages, but buying friends. The 
US was not paying ransom. It was 
pursuing a larger strategic objec- 
ti ve: making alliances with Ir an ian 
doves as an opening to a post- 
Khomeini future. 

Goodness. Has there ever been 
an appeasement policy that was 
not predicated on the notion of 
hawks and doves among our 
enemies? We must offer wheat 
and credits and perhaps pieces of 
Africa or Central America in order 


to strengthen Soviet (or Sandinista 
or Angolan, fill in the blanks) 
doves. Heard that one? Whenever 
conservatives hear it, their instinc- 
tive, and correct, response is 
ridicule. 

Now we hear that there is a 
power struggle taking place among 
Ayatollah Khomeini's successors, 
and we have to help the doves. 
There is a problem with this 
theory. True, there are several 
factions vying for power. But there 
is not a shred of evidence that any 
one is any less an Islamic fanatic 
or anti-Western than the other. 
Nor, even if such a faction exists, 
that we know which one It is. Nor, 
even if we know, that we know 
how to help it. One would imagine 
that in Khomeini-land, a connec- 
tion to the Great Satan is hardly a 
means to political advancement. 

The president has been flying a 
seat-of-th e-pants foreign policy for 
some time now. (Reykjavik comes 
to mind.) It has now crash-landed. 
Reagan likes to pilot while listen- 
ing to his gut, not watching his 
radar. His gut — sympathy for 
hostage families — told him to risk 
for the hostages. He did. He risked 
America’s anti-terrorist policy. He 
risked American credibility with 


foe Gulf slates and Arab mod- 
erates. He risked his own prin- 
ciple, enunciated (hiring his first 
week in office, that criminals, 
even if state-sponsored, will not 
dictate American foreign policy, 

Reagan’s legendary luck ran 
out. Where were his advisers in 
the White House whose job it is to 
tell him that he cant live on luck 
alone? Whose job is it to watch the 
radar? Miscalculation is not a 
hanging offence, but it is a 
resigning one. 

An anti -terrorism policy is 
extraordinarily difficult to sustain 
because, like any policy of not 
doing (no negotiation, no con- 
cessions), it is inherently fragile: 
one significant slip and the policy 
evaporates. Right now, the US 
policy is about to evaporate. 

It cannot easily be salvaged but 
a principled resignation is the first 
step on the road back. It would 
demonstrate that the policy of 
trading arms (and the American 
national interest) for hostages is 
repudiated. That policy, not the 
choice of loose-tipped Iranians as 
partners, is the miscalculation. 

Carrington miscalculated Ar- 
gentine intentions and resigned. 
Will the American miscalculator 
please stand up and step down?

New Republic. 


Philip Jacobson assesses the complex aftermath of the Hasenfus affair 


No sooner had the American 
mercenary Eugene Hasenfus be- 
gun serving the 30-year sentence 
imposed on him last weekend for 
running guns to the Contra 
guerrillas in Nicaragua than ru- 
mours of a deal to send him home 
to Wisconsin were doing the 
rounds in Managua, the Nica- 
raguan capital 

The ruling Sandinistas are said 
to be contemplating handing him 
over to the American ambassador 
in an act of clemency designed to 
improve their humanitarian im- 
age abroad. Other reports claim 
that the 4S-year-old former Ma- 
rine, who freely confessed to 
taking part in clandestine supply 
Sights over Nicaraguan territory, 
would be swapped for prisoners 
now in the hands of the Contras. 

It is even possible, insiders 
suggest, that Hasenfus will shortly 
be thrown out of the country as 
publicly and as ignominious ly as 
possible to demonstrate the 
Sandinistas' contempt for the 
small fry caught up in what they 
denounce as operations “sup- 
ported, directed and financed by 
the current government of the 
United States". 

As it happens, in testimony 
before the Nicaraguan revolu- 
tionary tribunal, Hasenfus went 
some way towards withdrawing an 
original admission that he was on 
the CIA's books as a “lticker" — 
booting parachute loads out of the 
plane. His evidence made it clear, 
however, that the network which 
began supplying weapons and 
equipment to the Contras soon 
after Congress had voted to cut off 
all military aid in 1984 could never 
have functioned without, at the 
very least, cooperation from US 
government and military officials. 
Whether this was a breach of the 
law is something that Congress 
may well wish to investigate in the 
near future. What happens now 
that the cell door has slammed 
behind Eugene Hasenfus in his 
maximum-security jail outside 
Managua poses a considerable 
problem for the US government. 
The operation in which he was 
engaged might have been praised 
by officials close to President 
Reagan, but his position now is 
manifestly different from that of 
the American citizens still suffer- 
ing as hostages in Lebanon and of 
the journalist Nicholas Daniloff 
falsely accused and imprisoned by 
the KGB in Moscow last Septem- 
ber. 

The White House is entitled to 
criticize foe Sandinista tribunal's 
verdict as “serving no other 
purpose than to make propa- 
ganda". and the State Department 
to complain that the trial violated 
some of the rights to which 
Hasenfus was entitled under Nica- 
raguan law. The fact is that under 
that same law, he was clearly 
guilty as charged. 

It remains to be seen how the 
Sandinista comandames choose to 
exploit this affair, but there is no 
doubt that it has contributed to a 



Captured when his gun-running plane was shot down, 
Eugene Hasenfus is now an international pawn 


show a hint 
of cockiness 


sense of confidence, even cocki- 
ness. as they square up to the 
Reagan administration. 

This manifests itself in various 
ways, but nowhere more signifi- 
cantly than on the military front. 
Take the curious behaviour of 
Captain Ricardo Wheelock, who 
as chief of army intelligence is 
normally the last person to give 
away strategic information. Under 
his direction, the Nicaraguan press 
prints only what it is told to about 
the course of the war against the 
Contras. Western journalists are 
firmly discouraged from visiting 
combat zones without official 
minders. Foreign diplomats, the 
Americans especially, find hard 
facts even more difficult to come 
by. 

How remarkable, then, that 
Wheelock should start volunteer- 
ing all manner of interesting 
observations about the San- 
dinistas' military capacity, ranging 
from the number of troops now 
engaged in the fighting to the effect 
of improvements in Nicaragua's 
air defences. The Contras no 
longer posed any real threat, he 


declared during an on-the-record 
interview with The Washington 
Past: despite the $100 million of 
military aid now coming their way 
from Washington, "they are only a 
social problem". He also acknowl- 
edged that Nicaraguan units are 
making regular incursions into 
neighbouring Honduras to attack 
Contra base camps and have 
established a number of fixed 
observation posts on the Hon- 
duran side of the border. 

A few days later, Nicaragua’s 
armed forces staged a spectacular 
display of strength to mark the 
25th anniversary of the founda- 
tion of the Sandinista National 
Liberation From. For a fUU 90 
minutes, tanks, rocket-launchers, 
heavy artillery and anti-aircraft 
batteries, mostly of Soviet origin, 
rolled through a square in the 
centre of Managua. 

Several thousand well-armed 
infantrymen from the elite 
counter-insurgency battalions 
marched smartly past the rostrum. 
Overhead flew a squadron of the 
Russian helicopter gun ships that 


have been helping them batter the 
Contras in the wild northern 
mountains. “They bad more and 
better stuff on show than any of us 
have been reporting home,” ob- 
served one Western diplomat 

Over the past 18 months, as the 
Reagan administration has built 
up its secret support for the 
Contras and imposed increasingly 
effective trade sanctions, the 
Sandinistas have been steadily 
constructing the most formidable 
military machine in the region. 
Few nations in the world have as 
great a proportion of citizens 
under arms as Nicaragua: 60,000 
men in regular army units, per- 
haps twice as many again (women 
included ) in various reserve and 
militia formations. With the 
Contras on the ropes inside 
Nicaragua's borders, this new 
muscle is now being flexed with 
hot-pursuit missions into Hon- 
duras for all to see. 

With the countiy on what 
amounts to a permanent war 
footing, the grip of government is 
tightening on almost every aspect 
of daily life, from food rationing 
and jobs to foe local defence 
committees which monitor every- 
thing that goes os in their 
neighbourhood. 

To some observers, this suggests 
that the hard left faction among 
the comandames — as represented 
by the Interim' Minister, Tomas 
Boige, and what has been 
nicknamed his “family” — have 
decided that with a new constitu- 
tion more or less drafted by the 
Sandinista majority in the na- 
tional assembly, the time has 
come to go all out for a Cuban- 
style Marxist state. 

The implications of this for 
opponents of the Sandinistas 
within Nicaragua are not en- 
couraging. Reports published by 
two independent human rights 
organizations earlier this year, 
setting out detailed accounts of 
official repression, made sad read- 
ing for those who much admired 
the present government for 
preventing any great wave re- 
venge-taking after the overthrow 
of the Somoza regime. 

For all that, ordinary people still 
jump at the chance to criticize 
their rulers before visiting for- 
eigners, complaining loudly in 
bars and restaurants, offices and 
taxis about the cost of living and 
about shelves forever empty in the 
supermarkets. They resent equally 
the choking bureaucracy, the end- 
less obligatory rallies for the cause, 
the privileges enjoyed by the 
Sandinista elite. 

The problem for the While 
House, apparently still intent on 
toppling this “evil empire”, is that 
the kind of bungled mission which 
landed Eugene Hasenfus behind 
bars merely stiffens the resolve of 
the majority of Nicaraguans to 
stand and fight any invader should 
it come to that. 


Techno-banditry or genuine business? 


Roger Boyes on high-tech trade bans 


Until recently Peter Kempa was a 
jaunty, respected figure in the 
Warsaw business community, 
chairing trade councils, importing 
and adapting personal computers 
for Polish use and, in his own way, 
trying to narrow the yawning 
technology gap between East and 
West But according to evidence in 
a London court where he was 

J ailed last month for 12 months, 
ie was also one of a growing 
number of “techno-bandits", 
businessmen who make a chunky 
profit out of exporting banned 
high-tech to the Soviet bloc. 

Undercover Customs and Ex- 
cise men have managed to pick up 
about a dozen British techno- 
bandits in the past 18 months, 
unmasking dummy companies 
and discovering reams of fake 
dispatch papers. The traffic is 
monitored by an official commit- 
tee, code named SXWP, which 
groups experts from the Depart- 
ment of Trade, the Foreign Office, 
the Ministry of Defence. MI5 and 
the Secret Intelligence Service. 
Liaising with the US, the commit- 
tee has to determine whether 
businessmen are violating or 
bending the rules governing 
Nato's. and Japan's, list of re- 
stricted exports to the Soviet bloc. 

There is a new sensitivity to this 
East-West contraband. The US is 
worried that when it shares its Star 
Wars research with Western 
Europe, it will start to drift 
eastwards. The US has tightened 


its export licensing procedures, so 
that the Defence Department can 
examine licence applications not 
only to Eastern Europe but also to 
Western and neutral countries. 

It has taken time to train 
undercover agents and only now 
are the results beginning to show. 
There is a huge need for new 
technology in Eastern Europe as it 
makes a push for modernization. 
The annual report of the West 
German counter-espionage ser- 
vice. the Verfassungsschutz, 
makes it clear that East German 
agents set a high priority on the 
electronics industry. The 
catchphrase in the Soviet bloc at 
present is “the scientific technical 
revolution" but research and 
development is a long way behind 
Silicon Valley. 

Moreover, the Eastern econo- 
mies are not always flexible 
enough to absorb state-of-the-art 
technology. Stories abound in 
Poland of computers bought in the 
I9?0s which languish in factories 
because there is no software, 
because there is no one to service 
the machine or because the man- 
agers understand only how to 
programme the company’s pay- 
rolls. 

The military sector by contrast 
is far more sophisticated. An 
important Pentagon paper. Soviet 
Acquisition of Military Significant 


Western Technology, catalogues 
equipment useful to Moscow’s 
defence planners. It ranges from 
advanced integrated circuits to 
integrated optics, from data dis- 
play equipment to supermini 
computers, from digital switching 
systems to plant control software. 

But the vetting procedure is 
based on possibly flawed value- 
judgements. Most electronic prod- 
ucts are useful to the military, just 
as ballpoint pens can be used by 
civilians and soldiers, by dis- 
sidents and fascist dictators. 

Richard Perie, the US arms- 
control expert who is the moving 
spirit behind the tougher controls, 
can happilly reel off Soviet mili- 
tary equipment that has benefited 
from Western technology, includ- 
ing disc drives for computers, 
microwave tubes For ship radar 
and special rubber for tanks and 
supersonic aircraft 

The idea of course is to deny any 
Western technical innovation to 
the Soviet bloc and thus make the 
East work harder and dedicate 
more of itsdefence budget to 
catching up. But what if the Soviet 
bloc already has the equipment? Is 
it still such a heinous crime to do 
business with the East? 

Talking to legitimate computer 
traders in Eastern Europe — and 
there are many, hoping to profit 
from the modernization drive — 


one gets the impression that the 
Western controls, though correct 
in principle, lack subtlety. 

Recently a British computer 
engineer, Alan Simmons, was 
jailed for nine months for illegal 
exporting. On the face of it, he 
appears to have been an active 
businessman who bought up Brit- 
ish and American-made computer 
equipment for about £1 million 
and sold it to the Russians for two 
and half limes as much. He broke 
the rules but it is not at all evident 
that he was selling the Western 
alliance down the river. If it were 
not for the export rules, he would 
be a candidate for an export 
award. 

Western concerns may be trad- 
ing quite legitimately for years 
with the East and when their 
business contacts ask for some- 
thing a little more complex, there 
is no great resistance: it is not a 
question of patriotism or treason, 
but of businessmen impatient 
with bureaucratic obstacles. 

Somehow the Western control- 
lers have to make a distinction 
between such traders who take 
short-cuts to keep their markets 
alive and the big-time operators 
like the West German, Richard 
Mueller, who operated 75 dummy 
firms in Austria, France. Britain, 
Switzerland, the US and West 
Germany, and fimelled advanced 
computers and other banned 
equipment worth tens of millions 
of dollars to the Soviet Union*

The infantilizing 
of examinations 


Education in England and Wales 
has suffered many catastrophes in 
recent years but none so great as 
the new GCSE examination. For 
•the first time, the egalitarian 
mentality has been able to impose 
its will not only on the state 
schools but on the private schools. 

The GCSE, with its emphasis on 
“course work”, “continuous as- 
sessment" and “transferable per- 
sonal skills”, is designed to 
minimize the distinction between 
academically gifted children and 
the others. Its purpose is not to 
discriminate hut to “differen- 
tiate”, not to assess but to destroy 
thepossibflity of assessment 
The recently published guide to 
the GCSE gives a dear picture of 
the dreary ideology behind the 
new examination. Older exam 
syllabuses are condemned, since 
they called for “learning facts at 
the expense of understanding”. In 
science, therefore, the new sylla- 
bus “will .shift away from foe past 
emphasis on facts and scientific 
terms and pay greater attention to 
foe skills and methods of science”. 
In other words, solid fact is to be 
exchanged for airy speculation. 

In music, foe efforts of students 
to compose “need not be limited 
to classical styles, and foe music 
can be written in foe normal way, 
or in some graphic form or 
recorded on tape”. Thus musical 
notation — one of the most 
precious achievements of our 
civilization — need no longer be 
studied. 

The desirability of “anti-racist” 
and “anti-sexist” perspectives is a 
constant theme and wherever 
possible teachers are given space 
for examining the “social 
implications'' of this subject. 

The tenor of the GCSE system is 
best conveyed by foe guide’s 
description of foe new mathemat- 
ics examination: “Traditionally 
maths has been about knowing the 
rules to deal with numbers, 
percentages, areas, equations and 
so on . . . GCSE should lead 
pupils to see that maths can be 
used to solve practical problems in 
everyday situations . . . One ap- 
proach is to let pupils explore their 
own ways of using what they know 
about numbers, shapes and so on, 
rather than insisting that results be 
reached by one fixed, ideal 
method.” 

Adoption of this deliberately 
infantilized system of examina- 
tions will make foe work of good 
teachers twice as hard and foe task 
confronting gifted pupils next to 
impossible. The A-level examina- 
tions will become increasingly 
remote from the competence and 
interests of those who begin to 
study them and the problem of 
preparing students for university 
entrance will be fraught with 
enormous difficulties. 

In the light of that, one might 
have expected, from the univer- 
sities. some kind of protest, or at 
least a warning. As a university 
professor in foe humanities, I 
should have hoped that someone 
might have spoken on my behaH 


saying: “Already many students 
come to university with an imper- 
fect grasp of E n gl ish grammar, a 
stumbling acquaintance with 
mathematical argument, a bare 
familiarity with English literature 
and history and a total ignorance 
of classical languages, the Bible, 
foe history of an and architecture, 
and foe languages and literature of 
France and Germany. 

“If schools wish to continue 
sending their pupils to university, 
then they had better ensure that 
they are rigorously taught in 
subjects that really matter and that 
the examination system reflects 
this fact Otherwise universities 
may have to set their own 
e xam inations and rejectfoose who 
cannot pass them.” 

But of course, nobody in 
authority is likely to say any such 
thing. The universities have too 
great an interest in mainta i ning 
the quantities of students to be 
honest about their quality. There 
is no body which is competent to 
speak for us — those of us, that is, 
whose primary interest is not in 
saving our salaries at any cost but 
in teaching what we know. 

So far foe only university 
response to foe GCSE catastrophe 
has come from the Committee of 
Vice-Chancellors and Principals, 
which has recently said, through 
its chairman, Professor Maurice 
Shock: “We want to take in 
students of a wider range of ability 
doing a wider range of subjects-” 
In other words “we” are happy to 
lower our standards and to offer 
“subjects” of which we have yet to 
prove' foe intellectual value. 

There will have to be radical 
changes in university courses. 
Professor Shock announced, to 
accommodate the new students 
and to bring higher education into 
line with foe GCSE. Moreover, “It 
is ludicrous for pupils who are 
studying the new syllabus to be 
expected to concentrate on A- 
levds, whose entire basis is the old 
O-leveL” 

By what authority do these 
comfortable members of foe 
establishment cast the rest of us 
adrift on a sea of ignorance? Their 
unrepresentative nature is appar- 
ent from their academic profile: 14 
per cent come from foe social 
sciences, 48 per cent science and 
maths, 24 per cent engineering, 5 
per cent medicine and 5 per cent 
“the arts”. 

In other words, foe humanities, 
which represent our major teach- 
ing commitment, are virtually 
unrepresented. Of course, a sci- 
entist, mathematician or engineer 
may be as well-equipped as any- 
one else to administer a univer- 
sity. Bui to suppose he has some 
special authority to speak for the 
rest of us in matters of university 
education is to suppose that the 
office of vice-chancellor is suf- 
ficient in itself to breathe wisdom 
into the mind of its incumbent, a 
supposition for which we have 
little evidence.

Drama in the 
empty fountain 


Is it a sense of theatre that makes 
Rome different from other cities? I 
don't mean Roman theatres, 
which are tucked away, chary 
about advertising their wares and 
not putting on anything much 
more daring than Ionesco and 
Beckett I mean, is Rome putting 
on a performance foe whole lime? 
Are all those Romans aware that 
something is watching them, as 
they put their coats stylishly over 
their shoulders, kiss dramatically 
by foe fountains at gesticulate in 
their driving seats? Is it precisely 
because Rome is so theatrical that 
her theatres are so unobtrusive? 

Certainly, foe approach to St 
Peter’s is all theatre and stage 
setting, and so is the idea of 
putting the Pope up on that 
balcony to address the hordes. 
Before be makes his trig appear- 
ance. one does not imagine a 
religious coach giving him last- 
minute preparation, one visual- 
izes his dresser saying: “Right, 
dear, you’re on in five minutes, so 
let’s make sure your robes are 
looking all right and don't touch 
your make-up, we haven't got 
time to repair your face now, now 
don’t be nervous-.” 

Would foe British ever let their 
Archbishop do his stuff on a 
balcony? Perish the thought We 
like our theatre to take place in a 
theatre, not in real life. The most 
we'll allow is foe Royal Family on 
a balcony, which is nearer living 
photographs than theatre. 

All churches in Rome are after a 
theatrical effect bat most of them 
are cruelly denied it by foe narrow 
confines they live in. A church in a 
□arrow street is like a great actor 
playing to two rows of stalls. 
That’s why so many Roman 
churches, in foe Piazza San 
Ignazio for instance, draw them- 
selves up into huge grimacing 
facades looking for all foe world 
like padded and overblown 
American football players. The 
only building in central Rome that 
really gets a chance to show off is 
the grotesque Victor Emmanuel 
monument, the thing like a Mafia 
wedding cake. It is so over the top 
that guidebooks hardly mention it 

Near the Via del Corso, by foe 
way. there is a clerical clothes shop 
where you can buy all foe nec- 
essary gear to dress up as a priest, 
which is very useful if you’re a 
priest and quite fun if you're noL 
The first window is full of dull 
black clothes. The second 
r 

1 


brightens up a little with nuns’ 
clothes, including blue and pink 
nightdresses and a quite respect- 
able blue dressing-gown. But foe 
third is the best, full of gold and 
silver doth that can be cut into 
robes of your own design, and also 
containing priests' overnight 
emergency kits — brown zip-up 
cases equipped with mini-chalice, 
gold V purple armbands, spare 
crucifixes, etc. 

Another traditional Italian 
piece of theatre is the big football 
match. I chose instead to go for a 
stroll in the Villa Borghese 
grounds. So did many other men 
but I was the only one who did it 
voluntarily; all foe others bad tiny 
radios glued to their ears. Their 
bodies may have been out strolling 
with their families but their hearts 
and minds were at the big game 
(Roma 4, Udinese 0, or Juventus 
1, Napoli 3, depending on your 
loyalties). Every time Roma 
scored, the traffic of the city 
hooted in unison. 

Or perhaps I've got it all wrong, 
and it's not theatre I’m talking 
about, but spectacle. The Greeks 
invented theatre, foe Romans 
invented spectacle and they still 
have a talent for it. They were 
never very good at the Greek idea 
of having a few people on stage 
going on about relationships. 
What the ancient Romans are 
remembered for is having a day of 
mass slaughter at the Colosseum. 
They’ve quietened down a bit 
since then, but foe flamboyancy 
foe mass gesture, the over-foo-top 
setting are all still there. 

For proof of this, go to the Trevi 
Fountain on a Monday morning 
Of Course, this famous fountain Tg 
not a fountain at all in the normal 
sense of a big spout; it’s a big stage 
setting, mil of gods, horses, rocks 
and lights, with water gushing out 
towards you from all angles. But 
on Monday mornings it’s all 
switched off, and plugs are pulled 
out, and men with gum boots and 
brushes go in to clean it up and 
remove all foe coins thrown in by 
people with wishes. These are 
stage-hands, sent in to refurbish 
tne long-running production. And 
even they cannot resist the 
temptation to put on a bit of a 
show, with the shovelling of the 
money into a big white sack held 
by a uniformed policeman. They 
are not cleaners, they are perform- 

ers. Rome is a show that never 
really stops.

INSIDERS AND OUTSIDERS 


Morality is indivisible, 
though culpability may have 
degrees. Insider dealing, which 

m its nature is theft from the 
innocent and unsuspec ting, is 
unmoral as well as illegal. It is 
also certain, particularly when 
party political stakes are High 
to provoke heated debate in 
which, alo ngside genuine 
moral outrage, envy, hypoc- 
risy and specious self- 
ngbieousness play their part 

Not for the fast tun e the 
City of London has handed its 
opponents a golden rod winch 

they can use not only to attack 

the system itsetfbut to strike at 
a Government that more *h?m 
any Conservative administra- 
tion in history is identified 
with the competitiveness with 
which the Qty is now setting 
about its business. 

It would be foolish to imag- 
ine that Geoffrey Collier's 
transgression of Morgan 
Grenfell's rales for employees 
dealing in stock exchange 
securities is unique, or that 
similar insider doling by oth- 
ers will not come to light. 
Taking advantage of price 
sensitive information not 
available to all shareholders to 
make a profit is a practice as 
old as the Stock Exchange 
itself 

Insider dealing was made a 
criminal offence only in 1980. 
The Company Seautties (In- 
sider Dealing) Act 1985 is 
specific. No one shall deal on a 
recognised stock exchange in 
the securities of companies 
when he is knowingly in 
possession of unpublished 
price sensitive information 
about them. Manifestly the 
practice has continued. 


It did not escape the 
Government's attention that 
creating a shareholding 
democracy through privatiza- 
tion would bring millions of 
City outsiders to the Stock 
Exchange for the first time. It 
k important for both that their 
second impression of the 
ca pi tal is t system is notofa den 
of thieves. 

At tiie same time as the 
privatization programme was 
gathering momentum tire 
Stock Exchange was preparing 
for deregulation: the Big Bang 
of- . October 27 ■ which 
open the way for price com- 
petition among brokers and 
abolished the distinction be- 
tween brokers who acted as 
agents for investors and job- 
bers who dealt in securities as 
principals. The great virtue of 
“single capacity” — each Stock 
Exchange member firm stick- 
ing to his specialised last — was 
that it minimised conflicts of 
interest with, the firm. 
Opportunities to cheat were 
fern, temptations to do so 
less strong. 

The securities industry in 
London is now dominated by 
financial conglomera tes w hich 
embrace not only st ockteoking 
and market-making but also 
the handling of shar e issues 
and advice on takeovers. It is 
this area of corporate finance 
where most unpublished price 
sensitive information exists: 
where the temptation to use 
such information for personal 
profit is strongest and where 
critics andeymes ahke look for 
their proofs that the City's 
system of self-regulation is 
inadequate and must give way 
to statutory controls. 


OUTFLANKING APARTHEID 


It has long been argued by 
proponents of disinvestment 
that companies with a large 
presence in the South African 
economy are “propping up 
apartheid”. If they were to 
withdraw, the argument runs, 
foe threat of economic collapse 
would compel the white gov- 
ernment to negotiate a new 
constitution with . repre- .. 
sentatives of other commu- 
nities. 

The opposite view rs that 
foreign companies act as- a 
social and political catalyst. 
Both by accelerating economic 
growth in general and by 
consciously adopting policies 
of advancing their blade work- 
ers, they undermine the bar- 
riers of occupational apartheid 
and help to create a skilled 
black working class and black 
middle class. 

The view of foreign com- 
panies as subtle underminers 
of apartheid is far more in 
accord with the facts of the 
South African economy, yet 
the opposite notion ofbusmess 
as the accomplice of apa r thei d 
has dominated the debate on 
sanctions and prompted the 
recent rush to disinvest 

It is hot difficult to under- 
stand why. When companies 
are receiving an 18 per cent 
return on capital, to argue that 
under the snrfece they are 
undermining the system is 
implausible even if it happens 
to be true. And where they 
were consciously attempting to 
advance black workers in 


compliance with the Sullivan 
principles, the advantages 
were often confined to then- 
own workforces. Outsiders 
were then able to argue that 
Sullivan policies represented a 
few crumbs from a rich man's 
table piled high with profits of 
18 per cent They offered no 
alternative to apart- 


. - But the recent statements of 
major companies like Shell 
and British Petroleum South- 
ern Africa make explicit what 
has until now been the merely 
implicit hostility between free 
enterprise capitalism and the 
bureaucratic social engineer- 
ing of apartheid. In addition, 
foe social actions propose by 
BPSA— providing finance that 
would enable state schools to 
become multi-racial private 
schools and segregated areas to 
become mixed-race commu- 
nities - would outflank the 
institutions of apartheid on a 
scale wider flan their own 
industries. 

But can such an approach 
bring about social changes of 
the Twgfrntnwfe required? Con- 
sider the example of Poland. 
Confronted by a totalitarian 
party dictatorship which 
claims control over every as- 
pect of fife from trade union- 
ism to literary criticism, the 
Poles have created a parallel 
set of social institutions along- 
side those of the communist 
state — underground maga- 
zines, schools, lecture groups. 


theatres, etc. In small but 
important ways, Polish society 
now functions without ref- 
erence to the government. 

South Africa offers the 
chance of achieving much 
more by the same method. It 
is, after all, a society in which 
many institutions — notably, 
the judiciary and the press — 
already enjoy substantial -in- 
dependence. There is, more- 
over, no local equivalent of the 
Soviet Union, namely an ex- 
ternal force which prevents the 
society continuing to evolve in 
a more liberal direction. Fi- 
nally, foe Afrikaner ruling 
class has lost foe moral self- 
confidence to enforce apart- 
heid and increasingly permits, 
either by law or by turning a 
blind eye, apartheid regula- 
tions to be ignored. About a 
quarter of the population in 
three central districts of 
Johannesburg legally reserved 
for whites are in feet 
Coloureds, Indians or blacks. 

The proposals advanced by 
BPSA, therefore, offer a solu- 
tion to South Africa's prob- 
lems which does not involve 
violence. They may also be 
able to enlist foe active sup- 
port of the most advanced 
sections of the black commu- 
nity who are not school- 
children and political 
organisers, but skilled workers 
and managers. In which case, 
should they not also have tire 
support and financial hacking 
of Western governments? 


LETTERS TO THE EDITOR 


Lull urged in hull design debate 


For the hear future, self- 
regulation will continue. 
Rightly. In the first place, 
because the detailed system of 
investor protection set out in 
foe Financial Services Act has 
yet to be poperiy tried, mid 
cannot be properly tested for at 
least another year. 

Secondly because it may be. 
argued that foe Geoffrey Col- 
lier case, within two weeks of 
Big Bang, has demonstrated 
how effective the City’s own 
operating rules can be. Thirdly 
because the insider doling 
clauses in the Financial Ser- 
vices Ant which the Secretary 
of State has promptly invoked 
to investigate foe Collier case 
should be sufficient to silence 
calls for more statutory super- 
vision — at least for the 
moment. 

The Qty, however, cannot 
afford to relax its vigilance or 
its disciplines. In some weD- 
publirised bids standards have 
suffered from the new creed of 
winning at any cost. The Stock 
- Exchange's own motto. My 
. Word is My Bond, no longer 
has foe same ring of truth. 

In the fight of the latest 
revelations from New York of 
insider Ablings on a massive 
scale by the arch abrtrageur 
Ivan Boesky, who is surely not 
alone, the City’s responsibility 
for maintaining foe highest 
standards in business and 
convincing people and Par- 
liament of its essential integ- 
rity was never more important, 
than it is now. The alternative 
is that foe price for turning the 
Stock Exchange into an inter- 
national market, which is foe 
justification fra: Big Bang , will 
be judged too great 


AN AWFUL LOT OF VOTING 


The result of foe weekend's 
elections has been a triumph 
for Brazil's ruling coalition 
and, in particular, its senior 
partner- the Brazilian Demo- 
cratic Movement Party 
(PMDB). But foe conntiy as a 
whole can take pride in ft. 

About 69 million voters 
chose from among 30 parties 
and as many as 45,000 can- 
di dates in polls at federal, state 
and gubernatorial leveL By 
canoe in the North, or on 
horseback in the South, . they 
travelled to vote — and did so 
overwhelmingly in favour of 
the governing coalition. For a 
country which returned to 
civilian rule only just o yer 18 
months ago, it was a happy 
illustration of democracy in 
action. . ^ _ 

It was also a good day for 
President Jose Sarney whose 
self-effacing approach to foe 
job of teadingSoutfa Amoica s 
biggest country has (after a 
shaky start) endeared hint to 
his people. President Sarney is 
closer to the Liberal Front, 
junior parfcier iu the two-party 
coalition, which has not had 
quite the triumph of the 
PMDB. Bui bofo represent the 
centre in Bra zil ia n .politics, 
and by rejecting dte_more 
pronounced politics of left ana 
right the electorate has voted 
for .consensus politics ana 
stability* 

Thefe were, however, m we 

material reasons why they did 




so. The Cruzado Plan, in- 
troduced last February to 
tackle Brazil's economic prob- 
lems, has dramatically cat foe 
flumigl inflation rate from 
more than 200 per cent at the 
turn of foe year. A price freeze 
has led to a consumer boom — 
and now to an electoral landr 
slide. 

But a price has to be paid - 
and the bills are just arriving. 
The price freeze was accompa- 
nied by a government dedaon 
to end index-linked rises for 
foe workforce, which in turn 
has helped towards the cre- 
ation of about a million new 
jobs. The consumer boom, 

encouraged by the. improve- 
meat in people's fin a nci al 
status, has ted to shortages 
throughout most sectors of the 
economy, in food and raw 
materials for industry. - 

In recent weeks, there have 
been disuniting signs of a new 
inflationary movement with 
shortages leading to a burgeon- 
ing black market. The balance 
of payments surplus has been 
falling after several years of 
growth. The. government now 
has to move on to foe Qnzado 
Plan's phase-2 which will need 
to damp down the overheated 
economy and encourage more 
investment; •• 

It is widely expected that foe 
government will have to raise 
purchase tax on.a wide range 
of consumer durables and 
make people . pay. more for 

t-',. . 


public utilities like heating, 
lighting and telephones. An 
end is predicted for wheat 
subsidies, now costing foe 
country foe equivalent of £1 
billion a year. But such mea- 
sures, however necessary to 
adjust the economic plan, will 
risk widening the divisions in 
Brazil's far from egali tarian 
society. 

As far as investment- goes, 
most large multilateral com- 
panies wifi probably ' want to 
have a sight of the new 
Brazilian constitution before 
committing themselves. From 

next February, Fariiament will 
have an additional role, rewrit- 
ing the constitution for the 
sixth time ' in foe nation's 
history. It is uncertain, for 
instance; how long Senhor 
Sarney himself wifi stay in 
office. When he took up the 
post, on foe untimely death of 
the president-elect Tancxedo 
Neves, it was in theory fin- six 
years. At the time Senhor 
Sarney said be would serve for 
no longer than four years. But 
with a popularity rating of 80 
per cent in the opinion polls, 
might he now change his 
mind? 

It is not going to be an eaty 
ride for foe President and his 
Ministers. But at least they are 
now. firmly in the saddle. 
Political stability will not guar- 
antee Brazil’s economic recov- 
ery. Bui the recovery is likely 
to be short-lived without ft.

written question seem to me to 
delineate the essential task with 
great clarity, rightly emphasising 
the future and not the past 
The recent report of the 
committee which I chaired con- 
cluded that there was sufficient 
evidence to suggest that the so- 
called short/fet concept for frigate 
design merited more senous 
consideration than it had pre- 
viously been afforded, as an 
alternative to the traditional 
long/thin design. However, we 
recognised that without access to 
classified information or detailed 
technical expertise, ft would be 
necessary for our findings to be 
validated by recognised and 
impartial expels. 

Lloyd’s Register are ideally 


suited for this task. They are a 
body whose authority and 
impartiality are widely respected, 
and I am in no doubt that they wfil 
produce ^report winch should be 
accepted by all those who have 
been involved in this controversy. 

It is a matter which has been left 
unresolved for too long. It is now 
of the greatest importance for 


Suez and Falklands 

From Mr P. J. Freeman 
Sir, Sir John Nott (feature, 
November 6) has allowed his 
vendetta against the Royal Navy 
to cloud his analysts of defence 
planning in foe tight of Suez and 
foe Falldands. He implies that the 
reason for maintaining an opera- 
tional fleet of two aircraft carriers 
and 50 escorts is “nostalgia for the 
days of Empire, the protection of 
the Suez Canal and India*’. 

In feet the Royal Navy has, for 
at least the past decade, aban- 
doned any serious worldwide 
capability and has concentrated 
on tasks in support ofNato in the 
Eastern Atlantic and Norwegian 
sea areas. The two carriers, which 
Sir John Nott says we cannot now 
afford, are, as he most know, 
primarily anti-submarine warfare 
ships designed for these Nato tasks 
and are quite different from the 


strike carriers of “East-of-Suez” 
days. Nevertheless, naval forces 
possess the inherent flexibility to 
undertake exceptional operations, 
such as the recovery of the 
Falldands, as a diversion from 

their main task. 

- The 1981 Defence Review 
threatened to reduce the Royal 
Navy’s assets so drastically that 
not mily would its capability for 
“out of area” operations have 
been removed tmt its ability to 
fulfil its prime Nato tasks would 
have been seriously weakened. 

This was the main reason why 
the review attracted such criticism 
and it is ironic that one result of 

the Falkland* campaign has hw»n a 

Royal Navy marginally better 
equipped for its Nato task than Sir 
John Nott appears to have wished.

Future of N Ireland 

From Mr Jeremy Burchill 
Sir, The political paralysis in 
Ulster referred to in your editorial 
(November 10) is the direct result 
of the Hillsborough Agreement, 
which was the product of adroit 
exploitation of terrorism by the 
Irish Government. Whilst abhor- 
ring terror, they capitalised upon 
its existence to secure political 
advantage for themselves. 

The interests of the Unionist 
community haying been so 
contempt ousiy ignored,' It is 
scarcely surprising that respon- 
sible leaders refuse to give 
credibility to a tystem of admin- 
istration which is patently inimi- 
cal to their interests. 

Unionists have retained then- 
self-esteem and will to triumph 
over adversity. Their policy has 
(with few exceptions) been one of 
the non-violent withdrawal of 
consent If political leaders are 
reduced to sitting “on the sidelines 
malting futile gestures” this is the 


logical consequence of the 
Hillsborough syndrome which has 
afflicted government thinking 
over the past year. There could 
have been no other scenario to a 
policy designed to subordinate the 
interests of the British community 
in Ulster to those of an Irish State 
which shares neither its aspira- 
tions nor ethos. 

The task for the Prime Minister 
is to devise a means whereby the 
citizenship of the province can be 
underpinned, whilst contempora- 
neously guaranteeing to those 
whose allegiance lies elsewhere 
those rights which the detorate of 
mainland Britain takes for 
granted. Can there by any doubt 
that equal citizenship is fast 
becoming the only option?

Front-line stability 

From the Reverend Brian J. Brown 
Sir, The Secretary-General of the 
International Society for Human 
Rights declares the restoration of 
human rights in Mozambique to 
be fundamental to the attainment 
of stability in the region (Novem- 
ber 4). 

It is perplexing that he makes no 
mention of the activities of foe 
guerrillas of the Mozambique 
National Resistance, foe major 
factor in denying to the people of 
Mozambique the right to live; nor 
does he mention foe proven 
participation of South Africa in 
destabilizing foe region. These are 
serious omissions for one promot- 
ing foe cause of human rights. 

The ISHR believes aid to foe 
Government of Mozambique 
most depend upon the withdrawal 
of foreign troops from foe country, 
who allegedly “do much damage 
to the people”. The re fe r en ce is 
presumably to Zimbabwean 
troops, foe invited partners of 
Freluno in seeking to secure the 
Beira transport corridor, with its 
benefits for both countries. 

Approximately $200 million 
has been pledged for the immedi- 


ate implementation of a transport 
rehabilitation programme in this 
corridor. Does the ISHR wish 
Frelimo to abandon this pro- 
gramme and capitulate to South 
Africa’s plan to keep these coun- 
tries dependent? 

The Council of Churches in 
Mozambique does not support foe 
ISHR’s claims that foreign troops 
are a major source of then- 
people's hurt and that Christians 
are slaughtered and bibles burnt 
by Ftelimo. The British Council of 
Churches has asked ISHR for their 
documentation so as to pursue the 
matter. Meanwhile we can but 
repeat foe assertion of our sister- 
coundl that religious freedom is 
encouraged by Frelimo. 

Help given by HMG in training 
Frelimo soldiers in traditions of 
discipline and service must not be 
withdrawn. To talk, as does the 
ISHR, of training Marxist murder- 
ers is to use rhetoric ill-befitting a 
serious human rights 
organisation.

Reform of Lords 

From Mr Nicholas Paget-Brown 
Sir, As your recent series of 
articles indicates (November 10- 
12), the House of Lords has 
undoubtedly proved a more eff- 
ective critic of the Government in 
the years since 1979 than the 
Labour Party which continues to 
favour foe abolition of the second 
Chamber. 

This opposition to the present 
House of Lords is based on the 
view that it is unrepresentative in 
its composition, fan ignores the 
fact that this could be rectified by a 
limited degree of reform. The only 
conclusion which can be drawn 
from this is that the Labour Party 
is opposed to a revisionary cham- 
ber of any kind. 

This cannot be good for eff- 


ective, considered, government 
The House of Lords, faced with 
probable abolition by a Labour 
administration, could not, and 
would not, function in the way 
that it has been able to in recent 
years. It would either become 
preoccupied with its own survival 
or, if granted a stay of execution, 
would feel obliged to tread more 
warily with Labour than with 
Conservative governments. 

Perhaps, therefore, the Labour 
Party could explain why its 
present policy xs designed to 
ensure that Fariiament is only able 
to f ulfil its scrutinising, critical 
function successfully when the 
Conservative Party is in power.

Nuclear deterrence 

From Mr Paul Rogers 
Sir, H. A. Saigeaunt (November 
12) argues in relation to nuclear 
deterrence that 

the greater the' “uncertainty” in the 
forecasts made by both sides, the 
greater the deterrence. It is the 
degree of “uncertainty”, not the 
degree of “fear'* that is critical. 

ft is a comforting but fun- 
damentally flawed analysis. 
Under crisis circumstances, un- 
certainty does not necessarily 
produce caution — indeed ft is 
more likely to induce pre- 
emption. 


The notion that uncertainty is 
stabilising is only relevant if one 
believes that wars are planned and 
organised in an orderly manner. 
They rarely are. A nuclear war is 
far more likely to escalate from a 
messy, unmanaged and un- 
expected crisis with neither side 
“planning” to use nuclear weap- 
ons. In such circumstances un- 
certainty will tend to encourage 
escalation. 

Yours faithfully, 

PAUL ROGERS.

Disabled tenants’ 
right to buy 

From the Director of the Royal 
Association for Disability and 
Rehabilitation 

Sir, Mr Anthony Smith (Novem- 
ber 1 1) has drawn attention to the 
discriminatory aspects of “right to 
buy" legislation relating to hous- 
ing for people with disabilities. 

The Royal Association for 
Disability and Rehabilitation and 
a number of housing associations 
accepted the exclusion of disabled 
people from foe “right to buy” if 
the housing unit was built and 
designed specifically for wheel- 
chair users. There is a serious 
shortage of rented accommoda- 
tion suitable for wheelchair users 
and it would be unfortunate if a 
house purchased by a disabled 
person and adapted for them was 
subsequently sold to a person who 
was not disabled and the rare 
special facilities were lost. 

When Parliament considered 
extending the “right to buy” to the 
tenants of housing associations, it 
decided that because of the short- 
age of such property all tenants of 

housing awnriariftn^ fhn p | ( f be 

excluded from the provisions. 
However, most housing associ- 
ation tenants are entitled to a 
transferable discount equal to the 
discount to which they would 
have been entitled if they had the 
“right to buy”. 

The transferable discount can 
then be used to purchase property 
on the open market, releasing 
housing association accommoda- 
tion for other tenants. Unfortu- 
nately disabled people who 
occupy wheelchair housing were 
excluded from the transferable 
discount provisions and are there- 
fore foe subject of a unique form 

Of Hiiyriminatinn 

The Minister of Housing has 
recently declined to extend the 
transferable discount provision to 
disabled people but indicated he 
would consider offering small 
grants to them. These grants will 
almost certainly be lower in value 
than a transferable discount, thus 
malting it even more difficult fin- 
disabled tenants to move from 
housing association or local 
authority accommodation and be- 
come owner-occupiers. 

It seems regrettable that dis- 
abled people are not being given 
equal opportunities to be among 
the one million new home ownera 
which Government has set as its 
target

Racing handicaps 

From Mr P. S. Knight 
Sir, The matters raised by Mr 
Hislop in his letter (November 1 1 ) 
concerning the defeat of Dancing 
Brave in the Breeders’ Cup are 
unworthy. Had these matters been 
raised by others in the letters and 
articles to which he refers, what 
has been an absorbing and 
exhilarating flat racing season 
would have ended on a sour note. 

Occasionally a racehorse cap- 
tures the imagination of a far 
wider public than those who 
patronise foe sport. Dancing 
Brave was such a horse (Brigadier 
Gerard was another). The connec- 
tions of Dancing Brave have more 
than honoured their obligations to 
the sport by running him on five 
racecourses in the United King- 
dom as well as delighting a huge 
crowd in Paris. 

If they “went to the well” once 
too often by going to California, 
who shall blame them. They did 
so with full knowledge that the 
rules governing the administra- 
tion of what we would regard as 
“other than a normal nutrient” are 
different. The commentators that 

1 have read have indicated either 
that Dancing Brave was beaten by 
a better horse or by a better horse 
on the day. 

I am sure that most of us would 
not wish to be labelled as 
whingeing Limeys by being asso- 
ciated with any implication that 
the opposition cheated or by 
casting unwarranted aspersions on 
the quality of their racecourses.

Sport ‘domination’ 

From Mr F. D. Goode 
Sir, I may have had rather more 
experience of Latin — and other — 
domination in sport than your 
correspondent, J. Fitzpatrick 
(November 4). 

From 1957 for 10 years I was 
Secretary General of the Federa- 
tion Internationale Motocydiste 
in Geneva. We had some 46 
member nations. 

During that time I saw the 
organization slip away from the 
control of genuine, disinterested 
sportsmen and become domi- 
nated by personal and political 
ambitions. The South American 
members could seldom afford to 
send delegates to congresses in 
Europe and naturally gave their 
proxy votes to Spaniards, who 
therefore had a bloc vote. 

We were unwise enough to 
admit East Germany, and there- 
after we had a Sonet bloc vote. 
This, combined with the Spanish 
vote, dominated our Federation 
and forced through partisan and 
political policies. 

I resigned in disgust in 1968. 
Yours etc.

After the gallantry of the Light 
Brigade's charge at Balaclava (On 
Tnis Day, November 14, 1985) 
came the reckoning. One source 
gives casualties as about 40 per 
cent of those engaged on the 
British side, another states that 
out of 607 horsemen who set out 
198 returned. The Russian

THE 

SIEGE OF SEBASTOPOL. 

(From Our Special Correspondent.) 

Camp Before Sebastopol, O cL 2S. 
After the despatch of my letter 
to-day, I learnt that Captain 
Feilowes, aide-de-camp, had been 
wmt in with a flag of truce to the 

Russian wnwp on the Tchcnuys, 

to ascertain the particulars of our 
loss and to communicate with our 
wounded and captive officers, if the 
Russians would allow him to do so. 
Somewhat injudiciously, perhaps, 
he was also authorized to de m a n d 


permission that we might bury the 
dead who might have been left in 
front of the Russian lines. It was 
imagined that the enemy had not 
performed this doty, as many 
bodies could be seen lying unburied 
on the field. . . . Captain Feilowes 
went in, attended far a trumpeter, 
with a flag of truce, and Mr. 
Manassion, an Armenian, attached 
as interpreter to the head-quartern 
staff The trumpeter blew a blast 
from time to time as he rode on, 
and when the little party ap- 
proached the Un«»g of th» Russians, 
and passed through the fatal field 
where so many of our poor fellows 
had been mowed down by the 
deadly artillery of the enemy, two 
Russian officers, accompanied by 
two Cossack Lancers, rode forward 
to meet them. The Russians, both 
of whom spoke French, asked what 
the object of the flag of truce was! 
They were told that Lord Raglan 
had sent in to ascertain what 
officers of our cavalry were alive in 
foe hands of the Russians, and to 
receive any letters they might be 
allowed to forward to their coun- 
trymen. One of the Russian officers 
stud, “You will be good enough to 
turn round, for you cannot ap- 
proach our camp so near. This is an 
affair for the General to deal with, 
and I shall communicate with 
him.” He rode away, and the 
remaining Russian and his two 


Cossacks, having seen that the 
Rnglish officer and his followers 


turned round so as to have their 
backs to the camp, begged of them 
to advance still further, so as to 
recede from the Russian lines, and 
then accompanied them slowly 
back with his Cossacks, watching 
carefully that none of the parry 
moved his head over his shoulder. 
They saw as they rode back that 
some of the dead horses had had 
large pieces cut out of them to 
furnish food for the Cossacks- 
Indeed that is not wonderful, as the 
Zouaves, in some instances, have 
cut choice steaks of horseflesh 
from the bodies of the fatter 
quadrupeds killed in action, and 
they pronounce them to be 
excellent 

In a few moments an elderly 
officer, a c companied by a small 
staff and attended by the Russian 
who had ridden to seek him. rode 
towards their flank, and. in a gruff, 
harsh voice, exclaimed “Je suis le 
general en chef ieft que voulez vous 
de moi Messieurs?" It is supposed 
that he announced his position in 
order to prevent Captain Feilowes 
asking Ids tuttw, or Hpmanriing 
information as to the title of the 
person who addressed him. Cap- 
tain Feilowes explained the object 
of his mission, and when he ca me 
to the portion of his message 
referring to the permission for 
burying the dead, the Russian 
General, in a tone of great indigna- 
tion exclaimed, “We have buried 
the dead. Tell my Lord Raglan that 
we are Christians, and. though we 
make war, we perform all the duties 
of Christians! The dead are buried. 
The wounded are taken care of." 
The Russian General then received 
two letters, supposed to contain 
money and keys, which Captain 
Feilowes had been charged with 
from two Russian officers in our 
bands. He took out his glasses to 
read the direction, and as he did so 
for the first time he deigned to 
bestow a quick sharp glance over 
the rim at the officer who ad- 
dressed him. Finally, he declared 
he did not know the names of the 
officers in the hands of his troops, 
but said that if Captain Feilowes 
returned tomorrow he would com- 
municate with him — that he would 
ascertain their names, and would 
have any letters they might wish to 
transmit conveyed to him for 
delivery. His tone became more 
courteous towards the dose of the 
interview, and as Captain Feilowes 
retired the General said, “Vous 
m’excuserez si je vous dise que 
votre attaque de 23me etait unef- 
attaque bete. parlant scion fa loi 
milhaiie" or words to that effect. 


Outlook uncertain - 

From Mr J. M. G. Hoisted 
Sir. Yes. I believe Miss Hill' 
(November 1 1) is right; but I go ^ 
further. The editors of the French - 
phrase books have considerately 
endeavoured to save us from*- 
embarrassment. The French, you 1 
see. are a cultivated people, and ^ 
talk about higher things. • ^

A remarkable 
transformation is 
under way in one of 
the most rundown 
areas of the country. 
The Docklands 
project, the largest of 
its kind ever 
contemplated, is 
regenerating 
prosperity in a once- 
derelict part of 
London 



F ive years after its 
inception, the 
London Docklands 
Development 
Corporation has con- 
founded many of its critics by 
achieving against all the odds 
what even its most intractable 
opponents would grudgingly 
agree is a remarkable trans- 
formation of one of die most 
rundown areas in die country. 
The Docklands project, the 


largest of its kind ever 
contemplated, is up and run- 
ning in a big way. Even the 
extremists on the local La- 
bour-controlled borough 
councils are meeting LDDC 
officials, talking about 
developments and contribut- 
ing to what is now an unstop- 
pable force. 

The Greater London Coun- 
cil refused to acknowledge the 
LDDCs existence — but the 


former is now relegated to die 
archives, while the latter, 
according to its dedicated 
officers, is a runaway success. 
Christopher Benson, the 
chairman says: “The Dock- 
lands dream is coming true.** 

And success has allowed the 
use of more and more super- 
latives. The latest publicity 
blurb describes the docklands 
as “the exceptional place”. 

Reg Ward, the LDDC chief 


executive since the be ginning 
of the corporation and in- 
defatigable campaigner for 
Docklands development, talks 
no longer of urban regenera- 
tion but of the “emerging 
city”. The project has gone 
beyond simple factory build- 
ing to creation of a city within 
a city, he says. 

A combination of the 
mechanism of the LDDC and 
the synergy of the individuals 


OUR LINE OF BUSINESS 
IS IMPROVING YOURS 




who ran it, he says, has 
brought about a much quicker 
acceptance from the private 
sector that the Docklands 
revival was going to work. The 
rapidity of achieving a finan- 
cial return has convinced 
hard-nosed City and property 
investors that putting money 
into the docks is not the high- 
risk venture is was once 
believed to be. 

Mr Benson says: “The num- 
ber of firms and financiers 
who have switched from say- 
ing ‘maybe’ to a solid Ve’re 
interested 1 has been - .quite 
extraordinary these last 12 
months”. It is all part of the 
growing momentum and the 
desire to be part of the success 
of docklands.” 

Mr Ward identifies six fro 
tors in the LDDCs success: 
the changed views about 
Docklands, the advent of the 
Docklands Light Railway and 
its extension to Bank station 
in the City, the creation of the 
Isle of Dogs Enterprise Zone, 
the agreement to locate the 
London City Airport in the 
Royal Docks, the siting in the 
docks of the London Earth 
Satellite Teleport and the 
massive proposed develop- 
ment of a new financial dis- 
trict at Canary Wharf 
“In retrospect,” be says, 
“you can see how each initia- 
tive has impacted on the 
others.” 

But the speed of the accep- 
tance by outsiders that dock- 
lands revival was working has 
also brought problems to the 
LDDC. In particular. Ward 
now frees a considerable bat- 
tle in persuading the govern- 
ment to commit more public 
funds more quickly into bufid- 
rag the vital infrastructure 
that is still needed in many 
parts of the docks. 

The pump priming expen- 
diture of the corporation 
should reach its peak much 
earlier than expected, he be- 
lieves. and then tail off rap- 
idly. “If we can maintain toe 
level of government spending 
it means that the leverage on 
private sector investment is 
greater, the timescale for 
development is shorter, and 
the residual cost on the public 
sector is lower.” 

The demands he is making 
on Whitehall are now entirely 
due to the “sheer 
acceleration” of the pro- 
gramme. “It would be absurd 
to let the momentum drop, 


but initially there is a high 
price to pay; after that the 


price to pay; after that the 
return to the Government is 


“The trouble is that the 
peak has come at a time that is 
inconvenient for the present 
Government.” 


One specific project that 
Ward is keen to start working 
on isa further extension of the 
light railway into the Royal 
Docks. He has been lobbying 
for enabling legislation rather 
than a blanket agreement from 
the government on the ground 
that he can then start drum- 
ming up the necessary private 
capitaL 

He is confident that half of 
the £120m needed for the 
Royal Docks extension could 
be gleaned from private inves- 
tors. 

He quickly becomes im- 
patient with civil servants and 
their lack of appreciation, he 
believes, of the way the LDDC 
operates. “We are managing 
uncertainly, but in the public 
sector so much time is wasted 
creating certainty. That is not 
what happens in the real 
world. 

“We have no land use plan 
or grand design; our plans are 
essential marketing images. 
The feeling of cohesion in 


docklands comes in 
retrospect." 

He complains at being “the 
most audited oiganizanon in 
the country” and must annoy 
Whi tehall officials with his 
declaration not to be too 
concerned with efficiency but 
with effectiveness. In terms of 
simply creating jobs the 
LDDC has been an expensive 
tool, but Wahl and his teams 
prefer to talk about the 




should the Labonr Party be 
returned to power. Labour 
does not support de velopment 
corporations- . Ward says he 
would hope to convince an • 
incoming Labour administra- 
tion that the LDDC is creating 
new prosperity, “and tac- 
tically they ought want 10 
embrace and take credit for 
our activities”. 

The uncertain future is now 
underlining the debate about 
how long the LDDC should 
remain in existence. It was- 
envisaged that its task would

.opportunities for both capital 
and labonr created by the 
rebirth of the docks: To date, 
the corporation have spent 
about £380m of which about 
£2S0m have been direct pump 
priming. This has attracted 
about £1.5bn of private sector 
capital, a figure that with the 
Canary Wharf* and Royal 
Docks developments could 
reach £6bn but there is un- 
certainty at the LDDC be- 
cause of the impending 
general election and the policy 


take 20 to 25 years, but Ward 
now hopes that the job will be 
largely completed in half that 
time. / 

One view is that the 
regeneration of docklands is 
such an enormous task that 
the corporation should remain 
as the chief force until it is 
completed. But Ward believes 
that the local authorities 
should be able to assume 
responsibility for their areas of 
docklands more quickly. 
When everyone is finally shar- 
ing the same perception and 
all are firmly committed then 
the question of whether we 
need the LDDC becomes far 
more valid.”

IF YOU’RE UNDER the 
impression that the cheetah 
is a particularly uncuddly 
animal, there are well over 
45,000 office workers who’d 
beg to disagree. 

That’s the number of British 
Telecom's Cheetah Tfelex machines 
in use in Britain. 

However, when it came to design- 
ing the latest model we could still 
see room to improve our best seller. 
Hence the launch of the brand new 
Cheetah Plus. 


Then there was the Autocall 
facility. This enables the operator 
to leave the machine to despatch 
messages, and keep trying even if 
the number's engaged. 


An Impressive Memory 

The Cheetah proved to have an 
impressive memory, calling up 100 
or more often-used numbers at the 
press of two buttons. 

And it proved extremely docile,

answer 

of hyperbole is 
! water. There are, as the glossy 
brochures tmfeilingfy remind 
us, 450 acres of docks and 55 
miles of water's edge: 

It is water, from the horse- 
shoe-shaped bend of the River 
1 Thames round the Isle of Dogs 
to the brooding, leaden depths 
I of the Royal Docks five miles 
I to the east, that underpins 
i docklands' efarim to be the 
| “truly exceptional place**. 

Tins area will be the key, 
two or three decades from 
now, in judging whether the 
planners and developers have 
made a nrirade east of Tower 
Bridge or whether they have 
merely compounded a famil- 
iar urban mess. 

This may sound obvious 
but it was not always so. The 
inner London boroughs which 
once exercised sway over 
docklands spent much time 
and money filling in docks in 
the 1960s and 1970s to build 
council houses on them. 

Surrey Docks suffered 
particularly. It is to the credit 
of the London Docklands 
Development Corporation 
that this has largely stopped 
and that the enormous poten- 

Estate agents 
now dabble 
. in aesthetics 


tial of dockland waterscapes 
as the central design feature of 
redevelopment has been 
recognized. 

In several [daces, water in 
the shape of canals to provide 
a connecting landscape, theme 
is actually being brought back. 

Such attention to genius loci 
sits ill with the reputation of 
the LDDC for a hard-nosed, 
no-nonsense approach to 
regeneration. What prompts a 
body described by a critic as 
being a “bunch of small- 
minded estate agents* 1 to dab- 
ble in aesth e ti c s? The answer 
is an odd one: free-market 
economics. The quality of 
design in docklands is market- 
led. 

Britain’s most ambitious 
exercise in urban regeneration 
will when it is completed, 
furnish a conspicuous and 
highly enduring testimonial to 
the abilities of the free market 
to produce places, as well as 
products, that satisfy the 
consumer. 

It is this which explains the 
LDDCs interest in water. For 
the yuppies, market-makers 
and City refugees who are now 
clamouring for a toehold in 
the booming docklands pri- 
vate property market, water 
means play, while access to 
dock and riverside means 
amenity, views and even 
higher house prices. 

The difference in perspec- 
tive is not merely one of 
generation or even of social 
dass. It is the beginning of a 
new chapter in social history. 

.One due to this lies in the 
changing structure of dock- 
lands employment. 
Manufacturing's share of jobs 
dropped fro; 


has dropped from 38 per cent 
in 1981 to 2 2 percent Hotels, 
catering and distribution now 
top the fist at 33 per cent and 
financial and business services 
account for 24 per cent. . 

A service and leisure econ- 
omy is now arising in dock-

aim of mixing up housing with 
offices and businesses, to cre- 
ate more balanced commu- 
nities where people can live, 
work and [day. 

Examples of such delib- 
erately mixed development 
include Surrey Quays, on the 
south bnnfc of the Thames 
along from Tower Bridge, 
where a 270,000 sq ft Tesco 
superstore, with up to 30 
smaller shops, and the new 
Mail Newspapers printing 
centre, will share a reclaimed 
landscape with a variety of 
new housing schemes. 

In the Isle of Dogs enter- 
prise zone, those able to afford 
at least £110,000 for a two- 
bedroom or three-bedroom 
house in the attractive Roger 
Malcolm development at 
Clippers Quay, wil] have a fine 
view across the watery ex- 
panse of Millwall docks, of the 
following: the new Daily Tele- 
graph printing plant, a set of 
offices taken by American 
bankers Merrill Lynch, a 
£600,000 publicly funded 
community water sports 
centre, the 200.000 sq ft multi- 
purpose Docklands sports and 
entertainment arena, and the 
projected £70 million Brunei 
Centre. 

Beyond all this, of course, 
will be the controversial triple 
towers of Canary Wharfs rising 
some 850 ft above the dock- 
lands skyline. 

Laurie Olin, one of the 
designers of Canary Wharf; 
believes the scale of docklands 
— a scale in which “vast liners 
were easily accommodated" 
and gigantic power stations 
and suos looked right — means 
that large towering buildings 
are entirely appropriate. 

A place where 
people would 
really like to live 

If such talk sounds un- ' 
comfortably like the mega- 
lopolrtan visions of Le 
Corbusier or Mies van der 
Rohe, which subsequently 
drove many unwilling citizens 
up into tower-blocks, consider 
that docklands will be a place 
where people will, largely, 
choose to live. 

The post-industrial water 
city of tiie 21st century is 
shaping itself accor ding to 
consumer demand. But there 
is also an important lesson — 
the very uniqueness of dock- 
lands. both its water and its 
closeness to the heart of 
London, makes it a very poor 
model indeed for urban 
regeneration schemes any- 
where else.

The effect on 

visitors of see- 

mg SO mnrii 

concentrated activity, such 
intensity of budding and 
demolishing, is cathartic H 
usually, instantaneous, 
producing a numbed and 
dizzying sens a ti on of p mg r win, 
While opening a computer 
centre in the Isle of Dogs 
enterprise zone this summer, 
for example, Norman Tebbit 
enthused vigorously about the 
area's prospects. 

MiUwall and West India 
Docks, he forecast glowingly, 
could one day he transformed 
into a future Manhattan- on- 
Thames, a “Wall Street on 
water". 

If scale and speed of activity 
are a measure of success, then 
the London Docklands 
Development Corporation, af- 
ter a slowish start, has 
sucoeeeded wonderfhlly. 

Projects which five years 
ago would have been scoffed 
at — a 27-knot water bus 
service, an airport, a high- 
level railway linking with the 
heart of the City — now seem 
unstoppable. 

The “fast tracking” of 
projects is becoming standard; 
the new Daily Telegraph 
printing works was ready in 24 
months. The first “redevelop- 
ment of a redevelopment" — 
replacing a 130,000 sq ft 
MiUwall Dock warehouse, al- 
ready refurbished, with 
750,000 square feet of offices 
— will start shortly. . . 

Qoser inspection, however, 
reveals an altogether more 
variegated reality, with one or 
two persistent and as yet 
unsolved problems. 

Chief among the latter is the 
very real prospect that local ' 
people, whether or not they 
are elbowed out in the prop- 
erty boom, seem unlikely to 


share significantly in any fu- 
ture jobs bonanza except per- 
haps on the menial peripheries 
as waiter, porter and upstairs 
maid. 

The LDDC, with- a growing 
range of training-based initfap 
lives, is trying bard to counter 
the focal drill? shortage, but 
there are many deeply-in- 
grained attitudes, and a cer- 
tain fataHsm, to overcome; 

A further problem, will be 
reconciling the increased 
of regeneration with a 

transport system that 

denly begins to look some- 
what sketchy. 

Tire mam reason for the 
variations in style and speed 
of redevelopment, however — ' 
apart from the Isle of Dogs’ 
highly privileged position as 
an en terprise zone — are tire 
variations in character within 
docklands itself 
It is not, as many outsiders 
might think, one big place but 
lots oflitile places, historically 
shut off from each other not 
merely by the River Thames 
but by the docks themselves. 

Each has its own identity, 
summed up most noticeably 
in around 310 listed buildings, 
from warehouses to 
Hawksmoor rfmtrhpy 
Local variations are another 
reason, ideology apart, why 
there is no “master-plan” for 
docklands. In its {dace there 
are fire ideas, drills mid 
imagination of developers, 
from which the LDDC iwitw 
its selection. Hence the 
im pro v em ent in overall de- 
sign as docklands grows more 
popular there are simply 
more ideas to choose from. 

The rule of thumb in dock- 
lands is that the further west 
you go from Tower Bridge, fire 
newer the activity. 

London Bridge City, 2 JS 
milliftn square feet of Ku- 
waiti-financed office space 
west of Tomer Bridge; already 
basks first phase fully let. 

Next to the bridge; Butler's 
Wharfs befog gutted to make 
way for loony penthouses and 


The Royals: the Victoria, Albert and George V Docks, with the Stolport ran way, centre, and the Thames Barrier, background left 


aCovent Garden-style scheme 
which will include fire world's 
first Design Museum, spon- 
sored by the Conran 
Foundation. 

Probably the most familiar 
“gateway” to docklands, how- 
ever, and almost certainly the 
best known bit of dock 
regeneration '• is St. 
Katharine's, where redevelop- 
ment is now almost complete. 
The EEC Trade Marks office 
may be housed on one of its 
few remaining sites. • 

Beyond St Katharine’s lies 
Wapping and Iimebouse, a 
region of narrow streets, 

rniallj enclosed haring tall 

warehouses now undergoing 
conversion into hjgh-prioed 
apartments, ami private river 
frontages. The latter thwarting 
one of tire LDDCs few basic 
design philosophies, that of 
providing pubhc riverside ac- 
cess. 

Wapping, of coarse, wit- 


nessed the first instalment in 
fire invasion of docklands by 
Fleet Street, in the shape of 
News Internati onal 
Following closely behind, in 
no particular order, are The 
Guardian, tire Daily Tele- 
graph, Mail Newspapers and 
the Financial Times. ■ 
Coupled with the prospect 
of a “City in exile” at Careary 
Wharf the moves have a. 
peculiar symbolism, lending 

Centre of gravity 

much credence to the daiinc 
of the LDDC that the centre of 
gravity of London, after centu- 
ries of shifting to the west, is in 
the process of a momentous 
reversaL 

Much of the developing 
character of Wapping will be 
determined by a highly am- 
bitious project to convert the . 


Sldn Floor warehouse of the 
old Tobacco Docks into a mix 
of shops, workshops and lei- 
sure facilities, again on the 
Covent Garden modeL 

The LDDC is also 
constructing a new landscaped 
canal linking Shadwell and. 
Hermitage basins, in recog-' 
ration of the feet that environ- 
mental quality is a powerful 
aid to regeneration. 

In no other part of dock- 
lands has this recognition 
been carried further in 
the old Surrey Docks. 

Here, more than a nywhe re 
else, the original docklands 
atmosphere has been oblit- 
erated and the resulting land- 
scape, flat and potentially 
anonymous, comes closest in 
feel to a postwar new town. 

To a notable degree, this 
placeiessness has been rem- 
edied by innovations such as 
the scenic water channel of the 


newly-constructed Albion Ca- 
nal and the man-made tu- 
mulus of Stave Hill, giving 
marvellous views over the 
city. 

Here, too, is the five-acre 
Rotberhithe ecological park, 
run by the Trust for Urban 
Ecology, the largest in Britain. 
Half a dozen other natural 
parks and city forms are 
dotted round docklands. 

In contrast to the staid and 

Jobs for 33,000 
^^reeimsaged^ 

low-rise look of the Surrey 
Docks, the Isle of Dogs, 
further east still, is boom 
town, a bright land of open 
spaces, breezy optimism and 
innovation, where Canary 
Wharf has suddenly trans- 
formed expectations. 

As a direct result, for exam- 
ple, the neighbouring “water 


village” of Heron Quays, will 
be more than doubled in size, 
rising 14 storeys high. 

Undoubtedly one of the 
most intriguing projects here 
is the £80 million proposal for 
a replica Chinatown around 
Poplar Dock, backed by devel- 
opers including Lord Wilson 
of Rievaulx, foe former La- 
bour Prime Minister. 

Coupled with similar 
“simulation” projects else- 
where — one current proposal 
is for a Club Mediterranee 
artificial tropic. The suspicion 
grows that parts of docklands 
ride being turned into large- 
scale adventures in pastiche; 
playfands where highly-paid 
professionals can escape from 
highly-stressed realities. 

If the risk exists, it is 
greatest cf all in the Royals, at 
the eastern most limit of file 
LDDCs remit, where foe vast, 
empty silences of the Victoria, 
Albert and George V docks 


cover 670 acres, fairly de- 
scribed as the most important 
urban redevelopment site in 
Europe. The area is already 
destined to bouse the new city 
airport, the Stolport 

Three consortia have put 
forward proposals for the 
Royal Docks, ranging in cost 
from £400 million to £750 
million and containing ideas 
such as a Londondrome — a 
25,000-seat stadium — a sci- 
ence park, a huge trademart 
and exhibition centre, an 
arboretum and a marine 
centre, as well as houses, 
shops and hotels. Four thou- 
sand houses are envisaged and 
33,000 jobs. 

Amid the many uncertain- 
ties that still surround the 
proposals, one thing is reason- 
ably assured:if they’ go ahead, 
they will go ahead fast and 
London will never be quite the 
same again.

start operating in the next year 
or two, only a handful of bus

The only unrestricted 
performer for London Docklands. 



The London Docklands 
Development Corporation was 
ora what appeared to be a 
thankless task when it was set 
up five years ago. It was 
charged with regenerating 
5,000 acres of derelict Dock- 
land a stone's throw from the 
City of London. 

At that time no developer or 
investor wopld consider 
developing offices, shops and 
industrial space in the vast 
area which was the legacy of a 
once-booming but long-de- 
serted port handling London's 
international trade. 

The creation of the LDDC 
and government commitment 
to paying for the vital road and 
rail links needed to open up 
Docklands was the vital spur 
to tbe commercial develop- 
ment of an area where land 
prices have soared and devel- 
opers are vying to build Bwlti- 
raOlioa schemes. 

The Isle of Dogs in Dock- 
lands became London's only 
enterprise zone. The tax 
advantages on offer ensured 
that it was the first location to 
attract new commercial 
development 

The Daily Telegraph is 
budding a £75 million printing

paper’s journal- 
ists are also to

consortium of

John Lalng, 
Fox and VOM, 
the Dutch com- 
pany — wants to 
create a £544

developer, for £22 million. 

But the biggest and most 
controversial proposal for die 
Isle of Dogs is the plan to 
create a new financial centre at 
Canary Wharf. A consortium 
of foreign banks, including 
Credit Suisse, First Boston 
and Morgan Stanley, wants to 
build what has been dubbed 
"Wall Street on Water". 

The 10 million sq ft scheme, 
costing around £lj billion, is 
mtended to provide a home in 
three skyscrapers for financial 
corporations based in London 
in tiw wake of Big Bang — the 
deregulation of the City’s 
financial markets. 

The key to the scheme's 


office, retail aad business 
apartment scheme on the Isle 
of Dogs. Such proposals would 
have been on thinkable a few 
years ago. 

Tangible evidence of the 
success of Docklands is die 
massive office and shopping 
development now stretching 


with 13 million sq ft of offices, 
a hotel, stadium and ex- 
hibition halls. And Conran 
Roche, part of Sir Terence 
Conran's empire, with the

wants to see a £400 mil H on

to Tower Bridge.

developer, the St Martins 
Property Corporation, owned 
by the Kuwait royal family, 
before Docklands’ boundaries 
were drawn. But it is now

A Ear cry indeed from the 
days when Docklands was 
shunned by the commercial

1 be property renaissance is creating benefits — and some prohlfims 

. Doddaods is '■ lookme for accommodate 




. 'Docklands is 
both a boom 
town and a 
building site, 
the biggesf by 
far in London. 
As develop- 
ment has gatb- 
. ered. a real 
momentum since the forma- 
tion of the London Docklands 
Development Corporation in 
1981, the face of the area is 
changing fhst, but it win still 
be many years before it can be 
completed, many years before 
the bulldozers and cranes 
leave Docklands to the people 
who live there. 

The scale of the renaissance 
of this part of east London is 
staggering, an area of eight 
square miles, so it is not 
surprising that it is taking a 
long dime. Since the LDDC 
began operations, nearly 4,000 
new homes have been built on 
sites it has released and an- 
other 2,500 on private land in 
the Docklands. 

A farther 9,000 homes are 
planned or under construc- 
tion, and the demand for 
bouses and flats there is such 
that price rises have been 
spectacular— or in some cases 
seen as scandalous by the local 
authorities covering Dock- 
lands which fear that local 
people will be priced right out 
of the area. Last week a report 
by Greenwich council's hous- 
ing committee claimed that it 
bad become a speculator's 
paradise, where land prices 
had increased to as much as 
£1.5 million an acre and with 
penthouse flats changing 
hands for £1 million. 

The corporation is only too 
well aware of these fears. Mr 
Christopher Benson, chair- 
man, said when hunching the 
annual report in the summer 
that 50 per cent of all housing 
had been sold for less than 
£40,000, of which. 40 per cent 
had gone to local people. He 
admitted, however, that the 
point bad now been readied 
when land values were such 
that new houses were not 
affordable for many people. 

He said: “We must look at 
alternatives such as equity 
sharing and we are trying to 
gel help from the Government 
for housing associations. We 
have also supported three self- 
build schemes". 

The latest indication of 
Docklands' success and its 
further potential is the arrival 
of the big estate agents, joining 
the local agents who have been 
nursing the area for years. 
This year Chestertons and 



•v •• >.3: 


Modern canal-eide houses at Wapprag by the Thames

can double its 
price in a year 


even Savflls opened offices 
there, and earlier this month 
Knight Frank and Ruttey 
announced that they too 
would be opening an office on 
the Isle of Dogs. 

When Chestertons (now 
owned by the Prudential) 
arrived in April as part of its 
expansion policy, Nigel 
Conradi. managing director 
said: “We think Docklands 
will probably be the highest 
growth office of our whole 
network. The scope for capital 
appreciation and potential 
growth is without comparison. 
Docklands is not only the 
largest city-centre develop- 
ment in Europe, but un- 
doubtedly the fewest changing 
and most exciting.” 

Surveying the area, Domi- 
nic Grace, partner m charge of 
SaviUs’ Docklands office, 
comments that the most 
distinctive thing about the 
properties is that there are 
very few period houses (Dr 
David Owen owns one such a 
property in Wappmg) and no 
blocks. The market is basically 
restricted to recently con- 


structed houses and Oats or 
conversions of large Victorian 
warehouses, and this has led 
to almost two separate market 
places. 

He explains: “The ware- 
house conversions tend to be 
up-market, designed to appeal 
to media/ardstically inclined 
professionals seeking alter- 
native and interesting accom- 
modation. The modern 
properties have, to date, often 
been aimed at the cheaper end 
of the market to provide local 
housing in accordance with 
the LDDCs plans." 

Mr Grace regards the in- 
creases in property values, 
sometimes doubtmg in 12 
months, as 'almost 


looking for accommodation 
other than the traditional 
Victorian terraced house. Mr 
Grace warns that developers 
will have to take care to 
provide what they seek — 
meaning spacious and in- 
teresting accommodation of 
one, two and occasionally 
three bedroom units, and not 
the somewhat cramped and 
boxy accommodation that 
many developers have so for 
built, largely because no-one 
could have anticipated the i 
extent of the book. 

This view is borne out by 
recent developments for sale. 
At Telfords Yard on The 
Highway not for from St 
Katharine’s Dock a Victorian 
former wool warehouse has 
been converted into 55 fiats 
and 23 penthouses. 

They cost from not for short 
of £100, 000 for a one-bed- 
room flat to around £350,000 
for the penthouses, and the 
agent, Alan Selby, has quickly 
sold most of them. He reports 
that about half the buyers are 
connected with the Gty. 

Savins are ^ning a ground 
floor fiat in Limchouse Wharf 
a warehouse on a riverside 
inlet, and asking around 
£325,000; they are asking the 
same price for a top floor 
maisonette in the award win- 
ning New Concordia Wharf 
south of the river, a conver- 
sion of -a listed Victorian 
warehouse; a flat of over 2,000 
square feet in Olivers Wharf 
Wapping High Street, a Vic- 
torian Gothic former tea ware- 
house, one of the earliest 
conversions in the area, is for 
sale at £350,000 through 
Carleton Smith and Company 
who will also sell you a three- 
bedroom flat at St Johns 
Wharf in Wapping High 
Street, for £335,000. 

The strength of demand is 
shown too by the example of 
London Yard, a development 
of 300 homes designed by 
Bunding Design Partnership 
in the Isle of Dogs, and with a 
Dutch fed to it through its 
developers foe Dutch com- 
pany VOM UK. The agents,

Another classic shot on 
the waterfront 


When limehouse Studios went to docklands in 1983, we 
weren't trying to be trendy. 

Just successful. 

3 years on, it seems we’ve exceeded even our own lofty 
ambitions. 

How does The largest Independent Television 
Studio Complex in Europe grab you? . 

It grabbed ‘Spitting image’. 

And it grabbed ‘Who Dares Wins’, Treasure Hunt’, ‘The 
Business Programme’ and a host of others we now call 
regulars. 

It also grabbed 3 BAFTA awards for our adaptation of 
Bill Bryden’s ‘The Mysteries’. 

And the Jean d’Aicy for our own production ‘Home 
Video’. 

Needless to say, success like this doesn’t go unnoticed. 

And in July this year, we struck a deal to become a 
fuily-fledged member of the Trilion Group. 

The advantages were obvious. 


Overnight, we gained access to the largest independent 
outside broadcast fleet and some of the finest post 
production facilities in the country. 

And now we’re confident we can take on anything. 

(not to mention anybody). 

So whether you’re planning a worldwide satellite 
broadcast, a corporate training video or the conference to 
end all conferences, call Annie Gorden on 01-987 2090 
and find out what Limehouse can do for vou. 

It won’t be the first time the waterfront has been the 
perfect location.

cupied senior appointments at 
home and abroad. 

He was bora on May 10, 
1905, and entered the Royal

How long 
before the 
milkround 
turns sour? 


There’s one thinga spell at University 
always guarantees. Plenty of 'milkround' 
visits from company executives. 

Each and every one of them has 
well - paid jobs to offer. 

But before signing on the dotted line, 
think very carefully. 

Will the promises turn out to be 
empty? Will the job suit your particular 
abilities and skills? 

These are not the sort of questions 
you can answer in 3 minutes. So why not 
take 3 years to dedde your future - as 
an Army Officer? 

On completion of your training at 
Sandhurst you will be commissioned as 
a Lieutenant earning £10,428. 

Naturally you will learn how to 
command and care for a group of bright 
young soldiers and to handle our 
sophisticated weapons and equipment. 

And if you are posted abroad at short 


notice to lead soldiers in unfamiliar 
surroundings you’d have to cope. 

No wonder many leading industri- 
alists regard an Army Commission as 
the best management training a young 
man or woman can have. 

Whether you make the Army your 
long-term career or leave earlier is up to 
you. 

Either way it promises not to sour 
your future. Quite the opposite in fact. 

And you’ll gain unrivalled executive 
training at our expense. 

So if you need a little more time to 
deride, see your Careers Staff and pick 
up an Introduction Form. 

Through this we will arrange for a 
Liaison Officer to see you at vour 
University; Polytechnic, or College of 
Higher Education.

Mark Lubbock, who died 
on November 10 at the age of 
86. was known as a conductor, 
composer, broadcaster, author 
and even singer, in the field of 
light music. 

To operetta he brought a 
lightly worn, but deep and 
informed, scholarship usually 
associated with more serious 
music. 

Belonging to a family distin- 
guished in various spheres, 
Lubbock was educated at Eton 
and served in the Royal 
Artillery in the First World 
War. 

He then sang in the chorus- 
es of several musical come- 
dies. and in 1920 made his 
debut as a conductor with a 
touring company. Afterwards 
he studied in Germany, and 
became r6petiteur, then assis- 
tant conductor, in Dresden. It 
was a period he later looked 
bade to with great affection, 
and it gave him a solid 
grounding in the standards he 
was to apply to light music. 

Returning to England, he 
worked on several musical 
comedies with Denis Fre eman 
at the BBC from 1932, later 
succeeding Stanford Robinson 
as music director of the vari- 
ety department and conductor 
of the BBC Theatre Orchestra. 


He left the BBC in 1944 to 
pursue a freelance career; but 
he continued to make occa- 
sional broadcasts, while his 
talks on Music Magazine en- 
chanted a wide audience. 

His infectious enthusiasm, 
his delight in the music of 
Viennese and German operet- 
ta, and his engaging broadcast- 
ing manner did much to 
bridge a gap between conven- 
tional opera-goers and the 
followers of musicals and tight 
music. 

His most enduring literary 
monument in this field is his 
Complete Book of Light Opera 
(1963), which is the equivalent 
of Kobbe's famous opera 
guide in its painstaking, per- 
ceptive scholarship. 

His original compositions 
indude The King Can Da No 
Wrong (with Denis Freeman), 
the first specially composed 
operetta to be broadcast by the 
BBC. He also wrote the inci- 
dental music to An Italian 
Straw Hat, and to Barbara 
Cortland's The Rose and the 
Violet. 

Lubbock was a much loved 
figure in musical circles until 
ill-health confined his activi- 
ties. 

He is survived by his wife, 
Bea Howe.

Bacteria may replace antibiotics 


Sir Dugald Baird, 
gynaecologist and early expo- 
nent of abortion as a means of 
freeing women from excessive 
childbearing, died on Novem- 
ber 7. He was 86. 

He was born at Berth. 
Ayrshire, on November 16, 
1899, and educated at Gree- 
nock Academy and Glasgow 
University. After qualifying as 
a doctor he continued his 
studies at Strasbourg 

As a young doctor he 
worked at Glasgow Royal 
Infirmary where he met and 
married May Tennent in 
1928. He also worked at the 
city's maternity hospital 
where the passage through his 
surgery of exhausted women 
with droves of children in 
their wake shaped bis attitude 
to unwanted pregnancy. 

In 1937 he went to .Aber- 
deen University as Regius 
■Professor of Midwifery, a post 
he held until his retirement in 
1965. During those years he 
somewhat changed the demo- 
graphic pattern in Aberdeen. 

The city became a centre for 
legal abortion, with Baird 
gathering around him a foam 
of spedalisis - medical social 
workers, psychiatrists and 


doctors - to decide on the 
merits of each case. He usually 
followed abortion with steril- 
ization, arguing that both 
together could improve the 
quality of a woman’s life. 

He also did research on the 
relationship between social 
conditions and childbirth, 
urging systematic cervical 
smears for all women between 
the ages of 25 and 60. He 
advocated smaller post-natal 
wards and encouraged better 
feeding of pregnant women. 

He resolutely supported the 
1969 Abortion Act David 
Steel travelled to Aberdeen to 
see Baird before deciding to 
introduce the Bill 

Baird was a rational though 
also an opinionated man. 
utterly convinced of the right- 
ness of what he was doing. He 
saw himself as a humanitar- 
ian, keen to help those who he 
felt were unable to help them- 
selves. His activities often 
drew the censure of feDow 
obstetricians, but in retire- 
ment he still received grateful 
letters from patients of his 
early days in Glasgow. 

His wife died in 1981 He is 
survived by their two sons and 
two daughters. 


MR PAUL PALMER 


By Beatrice Lacoste 


Then are a hundred thousand 
bacteria in the intestine and 
most of them protect the body 
agains t a wide rage of 
infections. 

Using this knowledge, French 
experts at the National Institute 
for Agronomic Research, near 
Paris, believe that by identifying 
and then cultivating certain 
strains or bacteria it will be 
possible to protect subjects 
whose intestinal bacteria have 
been partly destroyed by the use 
of antibiotics. 

Newborn babies have no bac- 
teria bat after a few horns the 
intestine starts to be colonized 
by a variety of nticro-organisms 
and an adelt has about 190 
different kinds of bacteria, al- 
though there are 10 major 
strains. 

Some of the bacteria of the 
Intestine synthesize vitamins, 
others join in with the white 
blood cells of the immune sys- 
tem to fight against harmful 
bacteria which erase disease. 

Bacteria can protect their host 
in two ways, either drastically by 
destroying pathogens immedi- 
ately, or by inactivating them so 
that they can be tolerated. The 
host then becomes a healthy 


hot if the protective 
bacteria are destroyed - after 
ta k ing antibiotics, for instance - 
then the harmful strains can 
quickly start prod Being toxins. 
This is why antibiotics which 
destroy bacteria indiscrinti- 
nately can be a mixed Messing. 

Doctors do not completely 
understand how tUs line of 
defence operates bet they have 
been able to recreate it in certain 
cases. Dr Robert Bo d me an, 
director of research at the 
institute, found that by 
innocnlating 49 newborn hues 
with the assortment of bacteria 
found in adult hares they were 
completely protected, whereas 
about a third normally die of 
diarrhoea caused by an or- 
ganism called dostridinm. 

Dv Dodnzean says tins resell 
is significant because the rann- 
ber of piglets that die from neo- 
natal diarrhoea is equivalent to 
the number that bare to be 
imported in France. Recently 
newborn babies have also been 
successfully innocnlated with 
bacteria were thought 

Doctors at the institute hope 
that ii will be possible to replace 
antibiotics by bacteria in some 
cases. They are also studying 


the impact of certain foods on 
the bacterial colonies so as to be 
able to prescribe specific diets in 
order to re-establish the right 
balance in the different kind* of 
bacteria. This bioto^cal war- 
fare, with bacterium fi ghting 
bacterium, is already being iwl 
in agricnltnre. 

Meanwhile, American sci- 
entists at the Forsyth Dental 
Centre in Boston believe tint 
cavities in teeth coaid be pre- 
vented by changing the bacteria 
that colonizes the mouth. They 
have dereiped a mutant bac- 
terium, a grain of Imrt w ^ 
whose genetic make-op has been 
modified so that it produces only 
low levels of aeid - 

Wheo they introduced the 
mutant strain into the of 
rats, the rats remained cavity 
free during their entire lives in 
spite of being fed a diet high hi 
sugar. Dr Jeffrey Hillman, a 
researcher in Boston, said teat 
although the human mouth was 
a more complex ecosystem, be 
expected to find an effective, 
harmless bacterium within a 
couple of years. American sci- 
entists believe this could be the 
best therapy for the preventfn of 
tooth decay. 


Mr Raul Palrafer, who died 
on November 13 at the age of 
80, was one of the oldest and 
best known members of the 
foreign press corps in London. 

Bora on August 1 7, 1906, be 
studied law in Copenha ge n 
before entering journalism in 
the early 1930s. He came to 
Britain in 1938 and was 
correspondent of the -Sca n 
News Agency when the Nazis 
invaded Denmark on Ami! 9, 
1940. From then on, he 
worked untiringly for his 
country until its liberation. 

Invited by the BBC to join 
its Danish Service, he also 
contributed to Free Denmark, 
a' publication smuggled into 
the occupied country. In 1 942 
he wrote his first book in 
English , Denmark in Nazi 
Chains, about the passive 
resistance of his people. 

Iq April 1942 he joined 
Christmas Moller, the pre-war 
Danish Foreign Minister, who 
had escaped to Britain, as an 
adviser in the freedom move- 
ment "Danish Council”. For 
this work he was later awarded 
the King Christian Freedom 
MedaL 


After the war he founded 
the association of Danish 
correspondents in London, 
whose doyen be was. He waa 
working until the day before 
he died. 

A gentle, courteous, elegant 
man, he was twice married. 
His second wife, the Austrian 
journalist, Elisabeth Snowden, 
survives him.

with the US 7th Fleet 

After the war he spent a 
period at the Na tio nal War 
College in the United Stales 
and was then Captain (D) of 
the 5th destroyer flotilla. He 
subsequently commanded the 
Royal Naval Barracks, Chat-

and deputy lieutenant. He was 
alsn active in environmental 
matters and was the first 
chairman of the Chichester 
Conservancy. Keen on games 
- he was a good hockey and 
tennis player - be also had an 
artistic bent. He became an 
accomplished water colourist 
and exhibited his Sussex land- 
scapes locally. He also liked to 
relax by playing the organ in 
his house. 

To colleagues he was known 
as an officer of the forceful 
type, but this was the profes- 
sional exterior of a charming 
character and excellent com- 
panion. 

He was twice married, first 
in 1931. to Mary Katherine 
Harvey, with whom he had a 
son and daughter. She died in 
1976, and he married, in 1982,

The case 
of the 
missing 
prince 

Continued from page 1 

Palace staff all still ins ist that 
Om Crown Prince's absence 
does not represent a snub to 
the British royal couple, but if 
be is in the Canaries while 
cla imin g to be at a Swiss 
hospital it is clearly a consid- 
erable insult. Crown Prince 
Abdullah has dose contacts 
with Syria as well as a Syrian 
wife, and is said by British 
sources here to look unfavour- 
ably on Britain at present, 
partly because of the leaked 
letter by the former British 
Ambassador in Riyadh, Sir 
James Craig. 

To avoid any suggestion of 
coldness to the royal couple. 
King Fahd himself last night 
hosted the first official ban- 
quet fin- the Prince of Wales; a 
planned lunch with the vice- 
governor of the City of Riyadh 
was scrapped so that the long’s 
occasion should be first Natu- 
rally, the princess was not 
invited to the king’s exclu- 
sively male dinner; she had to 
be content with a separate 
meal in a room full of Saudi 
princesses hosted by the king's 
wife. Princess Jauhara. 

The royal couple are also 
the first guests to stay in the 
king’s newly-completed Nak- 
heel guest palace, which he has 
put at her disposal. 

Tonight the royal couple 
will again eat separately in this 
aggressively masculine Is- 
lamic nation. While the prince 
is entertained by his new 
official host, the Defence Min- 
ister, Prince Sultan, the prin- 
cess will dine with the British 
Ambassador's wile and yet 
more Saudi princesses. 

Despite the absence of at 
least two key figures, there 
were some two dozen princes 
and sheikhs in red headgear 
and billowing robes ready to 
greet the royal couple when 
they arrived at the VIP termi- 
nal of the opulent Riyadh 
airport 

As the Prince of Wales 
walked from the aircraft’s 
steps with Prince Sultan, tire 
Princess walked several steps 
behind. She, her lady-in-wait- 
ing and the British Ambassa- 
dor’s wife were the only 
females on the tarmac. The 
prince inspected a guard of 
honour in green and while toy 
soldier uniforms. 

By the standards of Epsom 
or Ascot the afternoon's race 
meeting was a joyless affair, 
devoid of much gaity. The 
course is small, the stands 
smaller, and 600 counts as a 
good crowd; but there is 
neither d rinking nor betting, 
which does not leave a lot to 
do except watch the horses.

Shares fall 
in scandal 
aftermath 


Mr Robin Cbdk, a Labour 
frontbench spokesman, yes- 
today put an emergency 
question asking what the Go- 
vernment was doing about 
insider trading in foe City 
after the affair of Mr Geoffrey 
Coflier, foe director dis- 
missed by Morgan Grenfell 
Securities allegedly for that 
practice. 

In reply, Mr Michael How- 
ard, an Under-Secretary at 
the Department ofTrade and 
Industry, was soon in the 
position in which Mr 
Gorbachov frequently finds 
himself. 

From time, to time Mr 
Howard and Mr Gorbachov 
announce reforms which are 
Intended to stamp oat 
corruption. But the enemies 
Of rinraiminisnij Of in Mr 

Howard’s case capitalism, al- 
ways say that the crackdown 
amounts to very little, or is 
merely “cosmetic”, or only 
touches the tip of the iceberg; 
or is a just a cosmetic on the 
iceberg's unacceptable face. 

The cynics go on to say that 
of course Mr Howard, or Mr 
Gorbachov as the case may 
be, cannot do otherwise.Tbe 
corrupt practices are integral 
to whichever system either 
statesmen is claiming to re- 
form. True reform wul end- 
anger Mr Howard’s, or Mr 
Gorbachov’s grip on power. 
Corruption in the Soviet 


was widely bcHeved that he 
wanted to liberalise the City, 
without of course emkiager- 
irtg the party’s monopoly of 
power. By Tory standards, he 
k young (45)JHe has an 
attractive wife, daughter of a 
wing commander in what the 
City officially refers as the 
Great Patriotic War. 

It was against this back 
ground that Mr Howard, 
replying to Mr Cook's ques- 
tion, told the HouseTOa 
November 14. the Secretary 
for Trade and Industry (Mr 
Paul Chanson)' made a co- 
mm encment coder bringing 
into force on November L 
those sections of the Finan- 
cial Services Act relating to 
powers to investigate insider 
Healing offences and the 
disclosure of restricted 
information.*' 

Like those Western 
correspondents who take Mr 
Gorbachov’s reforms at face- 
value, some of us immedi- 
ately accepted that those 
grim, bureaucratic phrases 
did indeed amount to one Of 
the most sweeping assaults so 
far made against Mother 
City's immemorial corrup- 
tion. 

But Mr Cook was 
contemptuous. He is Scot- 
tish, ginger-bearded, and gen- 
erally rancorous. He is 
therefore well-suited to being 
a Labour spokesman on the 


Union, or foe City of City.

ism or communism and the

minister had said could not

teacher and provide real in- 
centives for foe young, able 
and energetic teachers”. 

Under his package, half the 
profession would be above the 
basic scale, compared with 
one third under that agreed at 
Acas. 

Some of the Cabinet believe 
he has already made too many 
concessions, a view shared by 
many Tory MPs, who yes-' 
terday were in no mood to 
demand peace at any price. 

The Secretary of State’s 
strategy now appears to put 
pressure on foe unions and 
local authorities to move 


closer to his position to 
strengthen his hand in nego- 
tiations with his colleagues. 

A derision is expected next 
week after the resumed talks 
and after the Cabinet commit- 
tee considering the matter. 

But last night, sources close 
to the employers said they did 
not expect any significant 
changes in the shape ofthe pay 
structure to emerge. Mr 
Radi ce and Labour MPs urged 
Mr Baker to accept the “fer- 
reaching comprehensive 
agreement" reached at the 
weekend. 

The Labonr education 
spokesman said an agreement 


backed by unions representing 
two thirds of teachers was fir 
more likely to slide than an 
imposed settlement 

“For the sake of a slightly 
different pay streuture and a 
relatively small extra cost, 
barely £50 million over the 
next 18 months, is it worth 
risking all the problems and 
potential disruption which 
could result from imposing a 
settlement? 

Mr Baker retorted that the 
agreement was not yet com- 
plete and important details 
had to be finalized. 

Both Mr Baker’s proposals 
and the draft agreement would 


cost £608 million over the 15 
months from January 1, 1987, 
though the latter does require 
extra money, to be phased in, 
to pay for the class size limit of 
33. 

But the Baker parikag e is 
more hierarchical, with a basic 
scale ceiling of £12,700 to be 
reached alter nine years of 
service. The maximum under 
the Acas deal is £15,058 after 
13 years, with rises of up to 
62 percent for the lowest-paid 
staff 

Both packages tie teachers 
to new contracts setting out 
their duties and conditions of 
service.

Grenfell, foe merchant bank, 
had a marked effect on the 
stock market 

Shares retreated ova a 
broad front, with the FT 30- ! 
share index losing 14.7 points 
to 1,278.5. Apart from a 
general air of nervousness in 
the market, brokers said the 
insider-trading scandals 
would probably dampen take- 
over activity on both sides of 
the Atlantic. 

By contrast, Wall Street 
trading appeared to be little 
affected, with the Dow Jones 
Industrial Average down only 
2.53 points to 1,871.06 at 
1.30 pm. 

Meanwhile the two in- 
dependent investigators 
conducting the government 
inquiry into suspected inrider 
trading by Mr Collier are 
working quickly. It is believed 
that Mr Peter Scott QC and 
Mr Graham Kennedy, met Mr 
Collier on Sunday — the day 
they were appointed.

Furthennore, because of overs m the past year, the 
the accumulation of hatreds average price of the affected 


and injustices, and the auto- 
cratic nature ofthe systems, it 
would be unlikely that either 
man's fill would be blood- 
less. It is pointed out, for 
example, that over the centu- 
ries the City has never known 
democratic rule. It would be 
absurd and un-historical to 
assume that the Stock Ex- 
change could immediately go 
over to Westminster-type 
representative government. 

Reformers placed great 
hopes in Mr Howard once he 
had finally clawed his way up 
to be under secretary at the 
Department of Trade and 
Industry. True, he was no 
Western-style democrat He 
first rose to prominence as a 
“Queen’s Counsel” - the title 
given to some of the party’s 
leading apparatchiks - in the 
tough Inner Temple region. 

But whatever terrible 
things he might have done, 
during his climb to power, it 


shares had gone up 66 per 
cenL 

Mr Howard replied that the 
swiftness with which the 
Secretary of State bad acted 
had showed the 
Department’s determination 
“to tackle the mischief ofthe 
pernicious offence of insider 
dealing." But, in order to 
placate any in the party's Old 
Guard who were alarmed by 
the anti-corruption drive, hie 
repeated the ritual phrase 
that “ so fir as the contribu- 
tion of City investment to 
British industry is concerned, 
in the last year £2,600 million 
has been raised by the City 
for industry.” 

Several Labour back- 
benchers, who regard the Chy 
as an evil empire which could 
never be reformed, suggested 
that the 'Government was 
much toiKher about Social 
Security fraud than about 
insider trading.

Shares in Cambrian & Gen- 
eral Securities, the British 
investment trust controlled by 
the disgraced American arb- 
itrageur Mr Ivan Boesky, were 
suspended yesterday as atten- 
tion turned to his past activ- 
ities in Britain. 

Information on Mr Boes- 


Bf Richard Lander 
shares — have been transferred 
to an agent appointed by a US 
court. 

Finn evidence of Mr 
Boesky’s arbitrage dealings in 
the British market is thin cm 
the ground, although his 
has appeared often in City 
mhimiw during bid 


hands of the Department 
of Trade and Industry, passed 
on by the United States 
Securities & Exchange 
Commission under tenns of a . 
memorandum of understand- 
ing signed recently by the. 
British and US governments 
in an effort to crack down on 
insider trading. . 

A statement by the Cam- 
brian directors said they were 
“surprised" by the news erf the 
$100 mifiknt (£70 million} 
fine imposed on Mr Boesky by 
the SEC on Friday. The board, 
which confirmed Mr fktefcy’s 
resignation, said it was 


consulting professional advis- 
ers and would make a state- 
ment after meeting on Friday. 

The DTI refused to com- 
ment on any possible in- 
vestigations into Mr Boesky 
or Cambrian, tot a Stock 
Exchange spokesman said 
there tod been no reqirest 
from the DTI for share trading 

information. ■ . 

Mr Boesky Trill be bn the 
enda of a Stock Exchange 
Dirndl meeting today, al- 
though the spokesman said 
there were no specific plans 
for action now that he had 
resigned from Cambrian. His 
stores in the trust — 12 per 
cent of foe ordinary capital 
and 73 per cent of the capital 


According to those who 
came across him, Mr Boesky 
was never completely at home 
in Britain, and even Cam- 
brian, an important vehicle in 
his arbitrage activities, was 
more than 90 per cent in- 
vested in the United States. 

“He was always a. bit ner- 
vous of the British market It 
didn’t have the liquidity be 
liked," one broker raid. Ironi- 
cally, Mr Boesky once said the 
London market was too leaky 
for him, allowing shares to rise 
sharply before a. bid was 
announced. 

Mr Boesky had several firm 
contacts in the City, including 
Schraders, foe merchant bank, 
which raised money for both 
Cambrian and his New York 
operations, and Seligmann 
Harris and Greenwell Mon- 
tagu, foe stockbrokers, who 
were joint brokers to Cam- 
brian. He is said to have used 
several British firms for trad- 
ing shares, although for most 
he used SeHgmaim, 
whose senior partner Mr Rob- 
ert Items flew to New York 
yesterday to discuss Mr 
Bbesky*s position. A spokes- 
woman for the firm said it was 
not involved with Mr Boesky 
beyond a normal relationship 
with any other client. 

Most recently, be has been 


linked with share stakes in AE, 
the engineering group still 
being fought over, Pearson 
and Commercial Union. He is 
also known to have tod talks 
with Airken Hume, foe finan- 
cial services group, and Dtm- 
top befo re it became port of 
the BTR empire and is said to 
have built up shareholdings 
during battles for Distillers, 
Westland, CT Bowring, De- 
benhams and Standard Char- 
tered. Other companies 
thought to have caught his eye 
at some stage include the 
Savoy Hotel group and Trust 
House Forte. 

Perhaps the clearest exam- 
ple of Mr Baesk/s British 
arbitrage activities came in 
1983 when he bmlt up a 5 per 
cent stake in Eagle Star, the 
insurance group, when it was 
being fought over by BAT and 
Allianz of West Germany. 
City analysts say Mr Boesky 
“made a nice killing" by 
sdling his 5.59 million shares 
for £46.4 million to BAT in 
the market after foe conglom- 
erate had made what proved 
to be the winning bid. 

However, Mr Boesky was 
far less successful in attempt- 
ing to arbitrage a takeover 
battle in late 1984 between 
Carless Capel & Leonard and 
Premier Consolidated Oil- 
fields, two British oil com- 
panies. Just before foe bid 
closed, Mr Boesky built up an 

8.3 per cent stake in Premier 
which, unusually, he publicly 
pledged to Cartes. Mr Boesky 
is believed to have bought his 

12.3 million shares at around 
65p — a price they have never 
been near since.

inquiry 

By Richard Thomson 

Banking Correspondent 

The two independent in- 
vestigators conducting ' the 
government inquiry into sus- 
pected insider trading by Mr 
Geoffrey Collier have started 
swiftly. 

It is believed that the in- 
vestigators, Mr Peter Scott QC 
and Mr Graham Kennedy, 
met Mr CoDier on Sunday, foe 
day they were appointed. 
They were also m touch 
yesterday with Morgan Gxen- 
fcH the merchant bank from 
which Mr Collira was forced 
to resign because his share- 
dealing broke house rules. 

Although the length of the 
inquiry will depend on exactly 
what the investigators un- 
cover, H is likely to be 
completed within days rather 
than weeks. 

One contoticating factor is 
that in investigating Mr Col- 
lier, the inspectors wll have to 
sift through foe books of the 
fly man Island company used 
to buy foe stores in AE. 

It is looking increasingly 
Ekely that the US Securities 
and Exchange Commission 
will be drawn into the inquiry 
mwtot could prove one of the 
most important tests of the 
new exchange of financial 
information agreement be- 
tween the US and Britain. Mr 
Collier conducted the share 
deal, which ted to his resigna- 
tion, throngh the Los Angeles 
office of Vickers da Costa. -

Replying to questions in the 
Commons about Mr Geoffrey 
Collier, a former director of 
Morgan Grenfefl Securities, he 
said that the case dem- 
onstrated just how well the 
financial institutions were ca- 
pable of pofiring themselves. 

Mr Collier is under in- 
vestigation by two special 
inspectors for alleged insider 
dealing. 

The move came after the 
DTTs decision last week to 
tong forward foe introduc- 
tion of toigb powers of in- 
vestigation - 


“The fact that Morgan 
Grenfell acted in the way it did 
last week demonstrates that 
self-regulation is working and 
working well," Mr Howard 
told the Commons. 

Keen to remove doubts 
about the trustworthiness' of 
London as a financial centre, 
Mr Howard dismissed 
Opposition charges that the 
Collier case was merely the tip 
of an iceberg of insider trading 
in the securities market. 

He said: “The City, as a 
whole, is an honest arid hard- 
working institution." Those 
who broke the rote were only 
a “ small minority". 



Steorag towards privatization: Lend King with Concorde model (Photograph: Stuart Nkol) 


BA profits dip by £60m but 
sell-off on course for success 

By Edward Townsend, Industrial Correspondent 

British Airways, dire to be the six months was £1,696 restoring market confidence," 
privatized by the end of million against £i,743 million 
January, saw its pretax profits 
plummet by £60 million to 
£141 million in the six months 
to the end of September. 


today. Lord King of Wart- 
naby, the chairman, blamed 
“an unprecedented and ir- 
rational” drop in riftmanri, 
particularly in transatlantic 
travel, after the Chernobyl 
disaster and the American 
bombing raid on Libya. 

But Lord King said the 
airline was on course for a 
successful sale which would be 
“another major step on foe 
road to BA achieving its 
corporate goal of being the 
best and most successful air- 
line in the world”. 

The c hair man declined to 
speculate on the full year’s 
results to next March, with the 
second half traditionally a 
period of poor ticket sales, but 
he bo^ed BA would not make 
a loss in the second half 
The airline’s turnover for 


a year earlier. For tire whole of 
1985-86, BA made profits of 
£195 million on a turnover of 
£3,149 million. 

BA’s debt, ’which stood at 
£1.53 billion in March 1983 
and is all guaranteed by the 
Treasury, was cot to £379 
million by tire end of tire last 
financial year and in the latest 
six months was down to £353 

milli( ) n , 

The figures show that be- 
tween April and June the 
airline suffered from a cut of 
almost 20 per cent in the 
numbers of mostly economy- 
dass passengers flying BA on 
the transatlantic route. Over- 
all, numbers were down 5.8 
per cent and revenue pas- 
senger kilometres on sched- 
uled services down 113 per 
cent in the quarter. 

“We judged that the fall in 
demand had been irrationaL 
We deliberately decided not to 
reduce capacity except mar- 
ginally. Instead, we set about 


Lord King said. 

He said North Atlantic traf- 
fic, which accounts for about 
40 percent ofBA’s profits, had 
now begun to improve and 
was up 3 per cent in Septem- 
ber and 6 per cent in October 
compared with a year earlier. 
It was a measure of the 
recovery that the operating 
surplus, which had declined 
by £52 million in the first 
quarter against a year earlier, 
ended the six months largely 
unchanged at £1 13 million.

Boom in 
shop 
sales 
continues 

By David Smith 

Economics Correspondent 

Retail sate held up at 
September’s record levels last 
month, confounding Gty 
expectations of a sharp down- 
turn. The figures, taken in 
conjunction with trade reports 
of healthy November sales, 
suggest that the consumer 
spending boom is continuing. 

Sales volume fell by 0.1 per 
cent last month, against 
expectations ofa drop of 1 per 
cent or more. The volume of 
spending in the shops was a 
full 7 per cent up on October 
last year. 

The Retail Consortium said 
the figures reflected the resil- 
ience of sales in the light of last 
month’s mortgage rate in- 
crease and the fine October 
weather, which discouraged 
some spending on winter 
clothing. 

Mr Richard Weir, foe 
consortium's acting director- 
general, said that retail sales 
volume was on track fora 4 to 
6 per cent volume increase 
this year. Retailers were con- 
fident of a bumper Christmas. 

The value of sate last 
month was £7.4 billion, or 
£1.85 billion a week over the 
four-week trading period. This 
compared with £1.77 billion a 
week in September. Sales 
value was 10 percent up on a 
year earlier. 

Department of Trade and 
Industry officials said that 
indications were that retail 
sales held up in all sectors last 
month. The index of sate 
volume at 123.1 (1980 = 100), 
compared with 1233 in 
September, was the second 
highest on record. 

In tire latest three months, 
tire volume of sales was 2 per 
cent up on the previous three 
months and 6 per cent higher 
than in the Augusi-October 
period last year. 

The trade figures for last 
month, due next week, will 
provide a further indication of 
the proportion of the spending 
in foe consumer boom which 
is being taken up by imports. 

In the first 10 months of this 
year the volume of retail sales 
was 4.8 per cent higher than in 
the same period of last year. 


Datafin raises offer for McCorqudale 


Datafin, the management 
buyout company in battle 
with Norton Opax for McCor- 
quodale, yesterday raised its 
cash offer by 5p a share to 
315p. The offer values the 
company at £161.4. 

Mr Robert Maxwell, 
McCorquodale's largest share- 
holder, played his final cards 
when he annonced he would 
assent his entire 22 per cent 
stake to tire Opax bid, on 
condition that, if it lapsed on 


By Alison Eadie 

Friday, Opax would hot frus- 
trate foe Datafin offer. 

Mr Maxwell stands to make 
a profit of about £5.5 million 
at the 31 5p offer price. 

Datafin said its offer would 
be declared unconditional af- 
ter receiving acceptances of 75 
per cent. It revealed that Mr 
Maxwell had accepted an 
invitation to take £ 2.6 million, 
or 4 per cent, of the fully 
diluted Datafin equity and up 
to 10 per cent, if other 


McCorquodale shareholders 
did not subscribe. 

Datafin is making £11.8 
million of its shares available 
to ordinary shareholders on a 
pro rata basis with Mr 
MaxwelL 

Mr Clive Chalk, Opax ad- 
viser at Samuel Montagu, said 
yesterday: “We would not 
have thrown away our trump

Last week Opax said it 
might not assent its near 15 
per cent stake in McCorquo- 
dale to Datafin, if its own offer 
lapsed. This could thwart the 
management buyout offer. 

The independent directors 
of McCorquodale, supported 
by adviser. KJeinwort Benson, 
have urged shareholders to 
reject the Opax bid and accept 
tire Datafin bid. 


BTR buys 
stake in 
Taiwan 

By Lawrence Lever 

BTR Group, the aqmsitj on- 
hungry industrial conglom- 
erate, yesterday announced 
tire purchase of a controlling 
interest in three publicly 
quoted Taiwanese chemicals 
and plastics companies — its 
first direct investment in 
Taiwan. 

The three companies, 
largely owned by one Tai- 
wanese family and known as 
the China General Plastics 
Group, are being purchased by 
BTR’s publicly-quoted Aus- 
tralian plastics subsidiary, 
BTR Nylex. Nyiex is paying 
US$87.5 million for 51 per 
cent of CGPG, plus 4 million 
of its own shares, worth A$40 
million. 

BTR h as a 62.5 per cent 
stake in BTR Nylex, which 
obtained a British listing for 
its shares in July. 

Yesterday’s deal, effective 
from July! this year, will 
increase BTR Nylex’s sales 
and profits by more than half. 
CGPG, quoted in Taiwan, 
achieved sales of A$24I mil- 
lion and pretax profits of 
about AS27 million m tire first 
half of this year.

Ministers 
warned on 
economy 

By David Smith 

Economics Correspondent 

Unpalatable measures will 
be needed to bring the econ- 
omy back under control, says 
forecast out today by 
Charterhouse, the investment 

and hanking group. 

“The rapid growth in credit 
and money supply, the test 
rise in wages, worsening bal- 
ance of payments and political 
uncertainty will lead to further 
pressure on the pound,” said 
Mr James Morrell, economic 
adviser to Charterhouse. 

“Ministers appear to be 
shutting their eyes to the 
dangers and consequences and 
sooner or later the excesses 
will have to be corrected." 

Charterhouse takes the view 
that the recent relaxation of 
both monetary and fiscal pol- 
icy by the Chancellor will be 
corrected soon after the gen- 
eral election. 

However, the forecast 
sounds a note of warning that, 
in the absence of a clear 
enough lead in the opinion 
polls for the Conservatives, 
the election could be delayed 
until well into 1988. Should 
this be the case, Britain could 
have to “muddle through” 
with present policies for al- 
most another two years. 

The current account wifi be 
in deficit by £2 billion next 
year, the forecast says, while 
inflation will rise to 43 per 
cent

financ ial institutions. Ills part 
of a plan to complete the 
internal market by 1992, to 
increase the flow of capital to 
medium-sized businesses in 
the EEC, and to extend the use 
of the ECU. The Commission 
hopes the ECU will replace 
pounds, francs and marks as 
the unit of account in private 
and commercial transactions. 

Greece, Ireland and Italy 
are to maintain some restric- 
tions on capital movements 
for the tune being. But Herr 
Gerhard Stoltenberg, the West 
German finance minister, said 
be hoped the remaining na- 
tional safeguards would be 
removed next year. 


Why Heath’s investors 


M Jacques Delores, presi- 
dent of the Commission, 
hailed the new directive on 
free capital movements as the 
equivalent of London’s Big 
Bang. He said; “The Big Bang 
has come to Brussels.” 

However, some financial 
experts said the directive was 
merely symbolic since many 
restrictions on the buying and 
selling of shares across fron- 
tiers had been removed. 

Spain and Portugal are ex- 
cluded from the new EEC 
directive because they joined 
in January this year, and have 
not had tune to adjust fully to 
membership. 


Fuel cost tops concerns 
for ceramic association 

By Teresa Poole, Business Correspondent 


The British Ceramic Con- 
federation wlO be launched 
today, representing the in- 
terests of a £1.5 billion in- 
dustry with products ranging 
from refractory linings to 
dinnerware. 

The main concerns of the 
organization, which employs 
70,000 people, are likely to be 
the need for cheaper energy 
and the continued availability 
of day-based raw materials. 

The industry . is energy- 
intensive and spends about 
£150 million a year on fuel 
and power. Mr Kevin Farrell, 
director of the confederation, 
said: “To remain competitive, 
energy prices must be com- 
parable with our competitors'. 
Our European competitors 


have benefited more than we 
have from cheaper ofl.” 

Last year, ceramic exports 
totalled more than £400 mil- 
lion. Overall, there has been a 
considerable increase in the 
industry's tableware and gift- 
ware sales in the past three 
years but most other sectors 
have been hit by limited 
public investment and lade of 
demand from the building 
sector. Jobs in the industry 
have fallen by about a third 
since 1979. 

The confederation is based 
at Stoke-on-Trent, Stafford- 
shire. Its 142 members repre- 
sent more than 90 per cent of 
the heavy day and refractories 
industries and 85 per cent of 
pottery manufacturers. 


Call for check on aid 


Priority for Britain's aid 
budget should be given to 
countries committed to eco- 
nomic recovery programmes, 
Mr Christopher Patten, the 
Minister for Overseas Devel- 
opment, said yesterday. 

“I want to reinforce through 
the quality and effectiveness 
of our aid programme, the 
case for its growth as our 
economy strengthens,” he 
said. “Overseas aid should 


assist the structural adjust- 
ments made by the countries 
themselves,” he added. 

“The aid community has 
been responsible for pressing 
too many — sometimes low 
priority and capital-intensive | 
— projects ou these countries, I 
contributing to the neglect or 
maintenance and to the need 
for substantial provision of 
recurrent expenditure,” he j 
said. i

Shareholders in the trou- 
bled Lloyd’s broker C E 
Heath have to decide by 
Friday whether to approve 
their board’s proposed 
merger with Fielding 
Insurance. 

Approval would scupper 
the offer from FWS, so 
shareholders have to look at 
both proposals. A no vote to 
both is not a realistic option, 
as Heath has conceded that it 
needs help on the manage- 
ment front There is as yet no 
sign of a white knight 

Heath dares slipped far- 
ther yesterday to 48 3p, in- 
dicating the market's doubts 
about PW^s chances of suc- 
cess. The PWS all-paper offer 
is worth 534p a share and the 
cash and convertible offer is 
wrath 524p- 

Heath dismisses the bid as 
fin a n cially inad e quate, yet its 
preferred option with Field- 
ing places a lower price on 
Heath shares. Hambros, 
which is selling Fielding to 
Heath, is (daring 7 J per cent 
of Heath at 464p if the deal 
goes through. 

Heath says that its stock- 
brokers, James Capd and 
Kitcat & Aitken, believe that 
Heath, combined with Field- 
ing, wiH produce a substan- 
tially higher price-earnings 
ratio than for Heath alone. 
But the argument is under- 
mined by the Hambros plac- 
ing price. 

The. argument tha t senior 
Heath staff will walk out of 
the door, if FWS takes over, 
also looks somewhat thin. 
Heath staff have been walk- 
ing out of the door at an 
alarming rate without die 
threat of PWS. 

The allegation that FWS 
has less manag ement in 
depth than Fielding does not 
hold water. FWS has ac- 
quired a lot of talent from 
other brokers in recent years, 
particularly from Wilhs Fa- 
ber. 

As a straight choice, the 
PWS deal offers shareholders 
abetter bet Heath sharehold- 
ers end up with 74 J per emit 
of the company for a profit' 
contribution from PWS of 
£8.3 milli on (admittedly after 
an accounting change which 
added £1.5 million). The 
Fielding option gives Heath 
shareholders 72J percent for 
a profit contribution of £6 

milli on 

.The Fielding option is 


amply too expensive. Addi- 
tional payments and options 
to Fielding management 
could take the price up from 
£71 milli on to £82 million. 

Shareholders should vote 
against the Fielding acquisi- 
tion. 

St Ives Group 

St Ives Group prints more 
than 10 milli on foibles a year. 
Overall demand is rising, no 
doubt reflecting the instabil- 
ity in the world at large. 

Bibles account for a fifth of 
St Ives's book printing and 
provide stability. Book print- 
ing as a whole accounts for 25 
per cent of profits. 

Its 10 percent market share 

makes it the largest book 
printer in Britain. However, 
it controls about a quarter of 
the printing of mass-market 
paperbacks. 

Printing books is a lower- 
mipig in activity than p rint i ng 

magazines. However, ratio- 
nalization after the December 
acquisition of Richard Clay, 
is causing tag cost savings. 

Magazine printing ac- 
counts for 75 per cent of 
profits at St Ives. With a 
market share of 10 per cent, it 
is the second-hugest maga- 
zine printer in Britain after 
Robert Maxwell's BPCC 

St Ives has just won the 
printing contracts for EUe 
and Company magazines, 
brin g in g the total number of 
contracts up to 329, a 31 per 
cent increase on last year. 
Demand is buoyant, with 
virtually all new capacity 
fuDy deployed. 

The balance sheet is strong 
with gearing telling to well 
below the last stated figure of 
22 per cent. The group is 
loolonf for acquistions in 
related areas but may have to 
compete with BPCC for 
choice pickings. 

This year, profits should 
rise to £10.5 million (earnings 
per share 56.8p>. Given toe 
management 's quality, the 
shares deserve their premium 
rating.

hear the news came away well 
satisfied. 

Even with the benefit of. 
sharply lower fad prices, the' 
first-quarter operating sur- 
plus was a mere £38 million, 
compared with £90millioa in 
1985. The main factors, a 
sharp tell in traffic after the 
Libyan bombing raid and the 
Chernobyl nuclear disaster, 
are by now weD documented. 

They led to honor stories 
like the one about the Ameri- 
can jumbo jet flying to 
Europe with a mere 27 pas 1 
sengers aboard. 

There is little doubt that 
BA adopted the correct strat- 
egy with an eye to a January 
flotation in marketing its wary

than simply catting prices to 
fill spare seats- This way it 
Tnapsiffd to daw bade some 
of the first-quarter short&IL 

The second-quarter operat- 
ing surplus turned out much 
in line with that oflast year so 
that profits ran out only 30 
per cent down over the. full 
half-year. 

In the run-up to privatiza- 
tion, the point will not be lost 
that BA is highly susceptible 
to adverse factors on the all- 
important North Atlantic 
routes. For the 30 per cent' 
profit decline arises from a 
much more modest decline of 
just 2.8 per cent in passenger, 
numbers across .the whole 
network, despite the strong 
positive contribution from ; 
lower fuel costs. 

The absence of last year’s 
£24 million of foreign ex- 
change losses also flatters the 
1986 figures in relative terms. 

But a high degree of opera- 
tional gearing works both 
ways. And for next year h will 
be running strongly in BA’s- 
fevour. Assuming that the 
second half produces its usual 
breakeven position or a little

Lade. of 

frustrated Mallory and 
Irvine's bid to scale Everest 
Not so the gilts market, look- 
ing cheaper and heading for 
fresh yield peaks after four 
disastrous trading sessions last 
week. Longs now yield a 
fraction less than 1 1 per cent, 
while mediums, at the hump 
in the curve, return more ths m 
1 1.5 per cent Official inflation 
is 3 per cent 

On the Everest scale, the 
market is op to Camp V. 
Traders are breathing easily, 
swearing freely and moving 
nimbly in the. snow. An as- 
sault on 12 per cent yields 
seems only a matter of time, 
the weather and Christmas 
spirit. Do not forget that in the 
early 1980s gilt yields soared 
into the mid-teens. 

Eleven in the morning on 
Thursday, November 13. was 
a critical moment in the fife of 
this market. The popular long 
runner. Treasury 1 1% per cent 
2003/07, fell to a price at 
which it yielded exactly 11 per 
cent 

Virtually the entire market 
held its breath at that mo- 
ment. Would traders buy re- 
turns of that magnitude? 

Aided by speculation about 
rising oil prices, judiciouly 
injected into the market at this 
juncture, gits bounced, in 
theory, the market found a 
bottom. But traders who be- 
lieve such things in anything 
but die short-term could be 
punished severely for their 
optimism. Disequilibrium 
soil reigns, not least because of 
the activities of the West 
German authorities last week. 

In three distinct ways the 
German authorities under- 
lined their view that rates and 
yields were still rising. A 
tighter fiscal policy was an- 
nounced for 1987, witness a 
sharply reduced federal 
borrowing requirement 
Rates on 28-day sale and 
repurchase agreements were 
pushed up five basis points to 
4.40 per cent finally, the 
coupon on new 10-year federal 
government bonds rose a fan 
ft point from October levels to 
6% per cent Pretfictably. the. 
mark strengthened. 

It may be churlish to recall, 
the Chancellor's comments 
on sterling exchange and in- 
terest rates. On television 
recently, the Chancellor ap- 
peared to commit himself to 
maintaining selling at levels 
dose toDMX9Q, even if that 
meant pushing British rates 
ahead. 

Tactics worked 

The German moves im- 
pinged directly on these com- 
ments and on gill market 
yields because sterling im- 
mediately sagged as the mark 
improved. Period rales rose 
sharply, (hough a base-rate 
rise did not take place. 

Cynics guessed that the 
Chancellor is playing for dine 
before allowing base rates to 
rise at some stage m Decem- 
ber, using the reserves to 
support sterling until after the 
British Gas flotation later this 
month. Incurring long-term 
liabilities to generate revenue 
through asset sales sounds 
unorthodox. But these tactics 
have been tried recently —and 
they winked. 

Factoring British Gas into 
the gilts market yield equation 
serves to recall just what 
difficulties the authorities £&e 
in trying to bead off fresh rises 
in rates closer to Christmas. 

Pro forma, the anthoriues 
will be heavy buyers of bifls in 
early December, a move 
which will increase fears that 
monetary growth is zipping 
ahead, unless gilt sales rise in 
tandem. 

What the authorities lack in 
this market is a kind of 
Abominable Snowman, who 
could halt traders in their 
tracks and frighten them afl 
the way back to base camp. 
But Yetis are hard to find u 
the new set-up. 

In foe absence of the 
jobbers’ cartel it is hard for 
the authorities to produce that 
familiar Dmidical lightning 
out of a dear blue sky, a daily 
hazard in the old gibs market. 

Traders should keep a dose 
eye on the index-linked scoot. 

It could provide a useful due 
about the authorities' 
intentions. 

Flaying about the compo- 
nents of nominal return, it is 
easy to produce a construct of 
future yield somewhere in the 
12.S per cent region. It is this 
prospect which motivates the 
really die-hard bears of the 
market 

But in the very short term 
two points are worth recalling. 
First, foe authorities are 
committed U) standing behind 
this segment of gills and, 
second, index-linked stocks 
have redly flown in the past 
two trading session. It is just 
conceivable that a strong 
showing by index-linked 

stocks coukl alter the shape of 

foe market, tempting m buy- 
ers as real returns were seen to 
fell 

Conclusion - look for a 
short-terra bounce, without 
any jpcai conviction. The. 
medium-term outlook re- 
mains dismal

Expect news of a bid , later 
week for Kennedy

talk in foe market yesterday 
even though foe shares ran 
into profit-taking and closed 

13p below tbeir peak of 304p. 

There has' been constant 
takeover talk surrounding the 
shares for most of this account 
but Mr Michael GoWcr, chair- 
man of Kennedy Brookes, and 
foe man who has dope mostto

brewers will eventually launch 
a bid and there is talk of an 
opening offer of 350p a share. 
That would value Kennedy 
Brookes at £60 million. 
Devenish, the West Country 
brewer, is bang mentioned as 
a possible suitor. But 
Devenish could have its work 
cut out Already there' are 
suggestions that Mr Golder 
has sorted out a possible white 
knight m the form of Van 
Group, foe North-east brewer, 
itself the subject of specula- 


tion of a possible bid from 
Pleasurama, foe casino and 
hotel operator. 

There are even 'suggestions 
that Mr Golder may decide to 
launch a defensive bid of his 
own on Noncot Holds, the 
USM-q noted Scottish holds 
group. But talk that 
Whitbread may launch a bid 
for Kennedy Brookes appears 
to be off beam. Whitbread is 
due to unevil interim figures 
tomorrow. These should show 
pretax, profits up from £65.5 
million to £75 million. 
Whitbread has already ruled 
itself but of the running fin- 
Kennedy Brookes. 

Devenish ended the day 9p 
cheaper at 200p, while Vaux 
tumbled 22p to 431p. Norscol 
was also unwanted I3p down 
at I60p. 

The stock market overall 
was eerily quiet with volumes 
at a record low as mazket men 
assesssed the Ivan Boesky 
insider trading scandal, hot on 
the -heels of foe Geoffrey 
Collier The usual flow 
of takeover gossip was notice- 
able by its absence. 

Jobbers used foe mood of 


apprehension as an excuse to 
mark stock lower. By the dose 
the FT 30-share index was off 
its worse, but stfll down 14.7 
points at 1,278.5. The 
broader-based FT-SE 100 in- 
dex dosed 15.7 lower at 
1628.6. 

Gilts were unchanged at foe 
short end and about E’is better 
in foe longs, with traders 
complaining foal it was 
impossible to find anyone 
willing to do business. “It has 
been the quietest day since Big 
Bang," said one. 

Tesco, the supermarket 
group, came back 4p to 387p, 
amid expectations that it is the 
favourite to win the Dutch 
auction for foe British off- 
shoot of Safeways. The likely 
purchase juice is es timated to 
be £700 million and the board 
of Safeway’s American parent 
will be having an 


decision to be anno unced by 
foe Cabinet on either Decern 
ber 11 or 19. 

One of foe few shares to 
rain s ignifi cant ground was 
Gestetaer which returned 
from suspension at 140p with 
foe news ofa bid wrath I75pa 
share from foe Australian 
investment company AFP. Its 
shares touched 200p, amid 
speculation of a rival suitor 
waiting in the wings, before 
dosing at 193p, a gain of 53p. 

Mr Tom Hostess, foe former 
GKN chairman, has done an 
admirable job since he took 
over the hot seat at Cronite, 
the metals and steel stock- 
holder group. Bui his efforts at 
getting the group back on a

The behind-the-scenes bat-

continues with GEC yesterday 
calling round to put its case to 
analysts at Chase Securities. 
The GBC Avionics contingent 
included a couple of repre-

Georgia,' the leading American 
defence group. 

The presentation was obvi- 
ously impressive: Mr Patrick 
Hickey, foe leading sector 
specialist at Chase, said: 
“GEC is now in pole position 
to win foe contract and this 
will be interpreted positively 
by the market when the export 
implications sink in."

by foe tumbling market, were

Lockhead told Chase that if 
GEC wins foe Ministry of 
Defence contract it will use the 
system in its CI30 transport 
plane which is in service in 
more than 50 countries. The 
tie-up would involve 15 GEC 
systems in foe “near term,” 
worth £1 billion, and up to 50 
systems over the next 15 
years, worth £3 billion — 50

per cent to £2^045 a tonne for

of coffee bought on the

Brazil’s credibility, in the

community, and while prices

The picture becomes more

The outlook for the market

to be panicked by the extent of 
the Brazilian crop failure this 
summer. They have discov- 
ered that it is possible to live 
from hand to mouth. 

. Speculators and commodity 
funds have taken their cue and 
moved to short positions, 
keeping an eye on the charts as 
successive support points 
were broken. For the bulls - 
and foe Brazilians - perhaps 
the only ray of hope is that 
buyers may be tempted to 
cover a possible shortage of

COMMENT Kenneth Fleet 


Bank changes its min d 
about Morgan-Exco 


Every so often the Bank of England 
makes a move that leaves the City 
baffled and sets experienced Thread- 
needle Street watchers pondering on 
the mysteries of central banks. The 
latest action of this sort by the Bank 


no longer intested in each other. Much 
water has passed under the bridge — 
Morgans has less need for cash after 
its share issue, and Exco is restling 
with problems in Wico, it stock- 
uiLosi atuun ui uus son oy inc nans broking side. But many of the 
was its announcement that the notori- fundamental advantages of a merger 
ous O'Brien rules, limiting the owner- still remain, and the two companies 


ship of foreign exchange brokers by 
banks, are to be summarily changed. 

The O'Brien rules achieved feme 
earlier this year when they stood in the 
way of the proposed merger between 
Morgan Grenfell and Exco Inter- 
national, thus preventing the forma- 
tion of what was widely regarded as 
one of the potentially most promising 
British financial conglomerates with 
global pretentions. 

The rules state, among other things, 
that a bank cannot own more than 10 
per cent of a money broker to avoid 
any danger of a conflict of interest 
The Bank has now abolished this , 
replacing it with a rule that banks can 
own more than 10 per cent of foreign 
exchange brokers as long as they do 
not then deal with the broker. This 
still avoids the conflict of interest 
while wiping away the previous 
inflexibility on ownership. 

Not surprisingly, the annoyance 
quotient at both Morgan Grenfell and 
Exco shot up at the news. Under this 
new rule, their merger could have 
gone through. The puzzle is that 
earlier this year the Bank took the 
view that it was up to “the market” — 
as manifested through the British 
Bankers Association — to decide 
whether or not the rule should be 
changed. At the time, the market 
seemed indifferent, so nothing hap- 
pened. The present change, however, 
has taken place without consultation 
with the BBA. The market appears not 
to have been consulted. 

The Bank now argues that the 
change is a necessary part of a review 
of its supervision of wholesale mar- 
kets — foreign exchange, gilts, money 
markets and bullion — which will 
result in a consultative document 
before the end of the year. The Bank 
has to formalize its reguatory proce- 
dures in these markets because the 
Financial Services Act requires it. 

But that does not explain the 
apparently hasty tuning. Why could 
the Bank not simply have waited to 
change the O'Brien rules when it 
publishes its rules for all the markets? 
Not surprisingly, there is now specula- 
tion that some new deal between a 
bank and a broker, which the Bank is 
keen to promote, is in the wind. If so, 
it is even more unfair on Exco and 
Morgan Grenfell. At the time of their 
merger attempt, the Bank said that it. 
would not be pushed into changing 
the rules by one particular event. 

In the meantime, Exco and Morgan 
Grenfell have never said that they are 


may yet achieve what the Bank's limp 
wristed behaviour earlier this year 
prevented. 

Petro pound again 

For the time being the pound seems to 
be in one of .its non-petrocurrency 
phases. Yesterday it perked up slightly 
in the wake of the decision by the 
Opec price committee in Quito to go 
for a price of $1 8 a barrel. But support 
for the dollar was a more important 
influence. 

The reason is partly that markets 
are sceptical that the oil price can be 
induced to levitate at that level for 
long. The present price of $14-15 a 
barrel seems to be broadly the right 
rate to keep present supply and 
demand in equilibrium, and nobody 
is prepared to bet much that Saudi 
Arabia can keep it higher for long. Any 
increase to about $18 is, therefore, 
seen as likely to be temporary at best. 

Yesterday's rise in sterling owed as 
much to a firmer trend in the dollar as 
it did to events in Quito. The dollar's 
buoyancy seems to be based more on 
fear than conviction. Concern about 
the huge budget and balance-of- 
payments deficits remains strong, and 
the main short-term prop is the pact 
between the US and Japan on the 
dollar-yen rate. This received further 
endorsement over the weekend when 
the Chairman of the Federal Reserve, 
Paul Volcker, repeated that the dollar 
may be near to its appropriate levels. 
The Japanese finance minister, Kiichi 
Miyazawa, went one better indicating 
that the yen was still too strong for the 
Japanese economy. 

The potential frailty of the dollar is 
underscored by last week's events in 
Germany. An upward drift in interest 
rates and a cut in Government 
borrowing and spending stands in 
strong contrast with recent action in 
the US — and indeed in Britain. 
German policy will put pressure on 
fellow members of the European 
Monetary System (EMS) as well as 
further afield. A realignment within 
the EMS looks unlikely before the 
German elections in January, not 
least because the Bundesbank will 
want to avoid any hint of influencing 
the outcome. But later on, Germany 
could face the alternative of lowering 
its interest rates at last or seeing other 
currencies devalue against the mark. 
EMS membership for Britain would 
clearly not be a soft option.

COMPUTER HORIZONS/1 


A rose by any other name may smell 
as sweet, bat the top manage rs at 
computer companies .Burroughs and ■ 
Sperry hope that their merged com- 
panies will smell even sweeter under 
their new name: Unisys. 

Unisys was selected from more 
than 31,000 names submitted by 
employees of both Burroughs and 
Sperry in a competition annou n ced 
shortly ^ after merger plans were 
finalized. Lee Machen, a software 
speci alist at the company’s Atlanta - 
office, came up with the name — 
which Burroughs chairman, W, Mi- 
chael Blumemhal, explains was com- 
prised of the words “United, 
Information and Systems”. 

“It signifies that we are solidly one 
company, unified and committed to 
the world information systems 
marketplace,’’ he said last week. “We 
are a new force there. We have the 
skills, global presence and staying 
power to meet customer needs for 
years to come.” 

The name itself — while an 
interesting sidelight to what has to be 
the most ambitious merger the com- 
puter industry has ever seen — is 
probably not as significant as the 
development plans the Unisys 
management team reviewed at the 
christening ceremonies last week in 
Detroit. 

“We are pledged to our customers 
that the Sperry and Burroughs com- 
puter architectures win be continued 
in perpetuity to protect customer 
investments," Mr Bhunenthal said. 
“The company behind that commit- 
ment to the two customer groups is - 
Unisys, a streamlined, cohesive en- 


Big Blue’s new rival 


tity bong bnilt from the best of 
Burroughs and Sperry." 

• Tho se plans are even more im- 
portant when you consider that. 
Unisys now comprises a $10 friBkm- 
ptos busmessand becomes the second 
largest computer company in the 
world, surpassed only by IBM. 

- And not all -the plans involve all 
portions Of the existi ng R mr nngh* 1 
and Sperry empires^Mr Blumemhal " 
has indicated that some parts ofboth 
companies will have to be sold in 


THE WEEK 


By Geof Wheelwright 

order to make Unisys more of a 
“cohesive entity”. 

■ He said last week that the sale of 
$1.5 billion in assets not essential to 
the core information processing and 
defence businesses mil be accom- 
plished before the company's pre- 
viously-set December, 1987 target 
date. • 

“By merging, we initiated a historic 
restructuring of the information 
processing industry that I firmly 
believe was needed, one that will 
have rosy or consequences,” said Mr 
BJumentbaL 

; Despite the fact that the sheer size 
ofUmsys is Hedy tomake it powerful 
(like that old joke about “Where does 
an elephant sit?”, with the inev itab le 
reply of “Anywhere it wants to!*7. the 
company wffl have to be extremely 
careful that duptication, c onflicting 
strategies and old rivalries will not 


. ' upset the delicate balance needed for 
ittosucceed. 

No one is more aware of this than 
' Mr Blumenthal, who is also keen on 
achieving more than the $150 million 
'annual cost savings outlined in the 
original merger plan (an objective 
described as achievable by a recent 

- Specry/Burroqgbs task force). 

One of the biggest challenges will be 
fending off IBM, which has got to be 
far more concerned about Unisys 
than it ever was about either Sperry or 
BuiTOughs individually.Now that 

- Unisys is the number two computer 
company in the world. Big Blue is 
likely to be a lot more aggressive in 
how it tackles this competition. 

And IBM mil have to move fast. 
Sperry has long-standing contacts in 
the defence and aerospace industries, 
while Burroughs hac always achieved 
success in the banking and commer- 
cial sectors. 

Together, they could well expand 
market share in existing markets and 
move on to further challenge IBM's 
traditional domination of the office 
automation business. 

But one area where neither Bur- 
roughs or Speny has been particularly 
strong, is in foe lower-market per- 
sonal computer business. Both com- 
panies stayed with “proprietary” 
hardware and software until very late 
in the day, when Sperry made the 
move to compatibility with IBM’s PC 
and AT desktop microcomputers on 
the Sperry IT and Micro/IT 
machines. 

While this may have been a 
problem two or three years ago, when 
IBM was raking in large amounts of 




Michael Blumenthal: new force 
money from its PC endeavours, the 
lack of PC market share is not likely 
16 be so crucial now. 

IBM is having to rethink its 
commitment to the lower end of the 
PC business, as cheaper “clones” of 
its PC made in the Far East flood the 
market and turn personal computers 
into a low-cost, high-volume 
commodity. 

• IBM has already indicated on 
several occasions that it will probably 
leave the lower-end of the PC market 
soon mid concentrate on its AT- 
specification PC and a new machine 
based on the Intel 80386 computer 
processor. 

Such machines would start to 
become valid competition for small 
minicomputer systems and it is then 
that we will really know whether or 
not Unisys will smell as sweet as 
Sperry and Burroughs ever did - as 
the new company goes head-to-head 
with Number One. 


■ Ford has begun a new 
training initiative intended to 
help organizations to 
improve the quality of their 
work by Implementing 
statistical process control 
(SPC), a powerful set of 
techniques for process 
improvement The 
Department of Trade and 
Industry is supporting the 
initiative. 

Quality control has 
traditionally been based on 
defect detection, then 
correction. SPC uses sampling 
and s t atist ic a l techniques to 

luappen^so that the 
emp hasis is on defect 
prevention. The "vehicle" 

Ford has chosen for the 
training is inter-active 
videodisc and. for the 
appfication of inter-active 
video so far, the company, 

Futu rented ia. Futuremedia 
will script, produce and 
programme a series of 
laser-vision discs on SPC. 

A Ford official said: 

“Although this initiative is 
mainly directed at our own 

■ manufacturing locations and 
vast supply base, the 
generic nature of the subject 
makes it potentially 
applicable to any process.” 

Micro Santa 

■ Accessing Santa Claus, 
accessing Santa! Thanks to 
Micro Link, the electronic 
mail service, children can 
contact the jolly old feBow 
by microcomputer. Now 
children — or their parents 

— can transmit their Christmas 
message via MicroLink. 

Having logged on to MicroLink, 
they simply type Santa on 
the keyboard, then enter their

access to features suen as 
WeatherLink, for the latest

where you can order delivery 
of flowers anywhere in 
Britain, and TneatreUnk. 
MicroLink recently provided 
a fink to afiow computer users 
on both sides of the Atlantic 
to chat to one another using 
their micros. 

Hi-tech water 

■ North West Water has 
announced contracts for 
computer-based systems, 
for the first stage of a £1 6.55 
million integrated regional 
telemetry strategy. The £4.25 
million contracts, awarded 
to Lo£pca and Dynamic Logic, 
have great implications for 


the water industry because the 
new high-tech scheme, to 
be completed in 1989, wffl offer 
great benefits to both the 
consumer and the authority. 

Another Gem 

■ Digital Research is 
predicting that with file launch 
of the 12tn Gem (graphics 
environment manager) 
software package and its 
recent Amstrad deal, the 
number of users of its Gem 
software will have reached 
more than 1 Yi mfflion by the 
end of next year. Several 
hundred Gem-based 
programs covering the main 
application areas, indudfog 
several high-end programs In 
desktop publishing, CD- 
ROM publishing and 
CAD/CAM. are now on the 
market 

Gem Is Digital's graphics 
user interrace, which presents 
the user with a screen 
displaying easily understood 
symbols (known as icons), 
windows, drop-down menus 
and dialogue boxes, 
instead dj requiring the user to 
team the often cryptic DOS 
command language. Gem was 
most recently chosen tv 
Amstrad for res new Amstrad 
PCI 512 range.

A Cambridge punt

By Richard Saraon 
Rank Xerox is setting up a 
European offshoot of hs Palo 
Alto Research Centre in Dun- 
bridge. It will be called 
Euro PARC and wfil be staffed 
by a mixture of European and 
American scientists, with a 
Palo Afto man as its director. 

The original PARC changed 
the way people interact with 
computers. In 1973, a mixed 
team of psychologists, cog- 
nitive scientists and software 
writers, recognized that tap- 
ping away at a keyboard was 
not a natural way fora human 
to talk to a machine. 

They decided that most 
humans are happier dealing 
with pictures than words or 
numbers. They came up with 
the idea of moving a “mouse’” Bffl Spencer L o o ki n g at

COMPUTER HORIZONS/2 


Automatic translation, or translation 
produced by the computer itself; is 
the big talking point in the t ransla tion 
world. It is usually known by the 
somewhat ugly and misteflrinig term 
“machine translation**. 

Every November the international 
Translating and the Computer con- 
ference is held in London — this 
year's, conference was the eighth — 
and the fixture looks like becoming as 
established a feature of the month as 
the 1 Lord Mayor's Slow.

and speakers and participants come

association with the Translators’

University of Manchester Institute of 
Science and Technology (UMIST). 

\ There is no donbt that the Transfet- 
ing and the Computer conference 
series, and the published proceedings 
resulting from them, have m»/te a 
major impact on the translation 
profession. 


They have introduced translator 
to the new technology, they have 
brought together practitioners, 
university researchers and teachers of 
linguistics and translation tech- 
niques, and producers and vendors of 
machine translation systems. 

Using computers to tr anslate' natu- 
ral language text has beat a dream 
since & Second World War, but took 
a long time to turn into rcaihy. 

The early enthusiasts tended to 
over-estimate what computers could 
do and underestimate the complex- 
ity of natural language. 

These - early enthusiasts shared 
what is still a common delusion 


among non-Jmguists, that translation 
from one language to another is 
simply a matt e r of word substitution. 

In fed, perfect translation is impos- 
sible, since every human language 
embodies concepts and ways of 
thinking which are unique; 

The human translator translates by 
making subconscious inferences all 
the time from the context ami from 
his experience of life. A computer has 
no intuitive common sense. 

In Europe a major turning point 
came in 1977 when the European 
rpTnmunfties organized a major 
conference called Overcoming the 
Tanpiaflft Barrier. This brought to- 
gether many researchers and poten- 
tial users. 

The European Communities them- 
selves decided to see if Systran, a 
system devised by an American, Dr 
Peter Toma, using a mainframe 
computer, could be used in their 
services and set up an organizational 
structure which now uses Systran 
regularly for handling part of the EC 
tr anslatio n requirement. 

Siepnan Johnson 


words 


The EEC is to create a 
computerized language 
translation system — probably 
the most ambitious high-tech 
scheme in the world — that can 
be extended to cope with any 
language pair. There are nine 
working languages in the 
Community, mn icing 72 lan- 
guage pairs. 

The new system, rafted 
Eurotra, is still in the research 
stage with working groups in 
each of the member states. 
The UK groups are at Man- 
chester University's Institute 
of Science and Technology 
and Essex University. 

it is only in the 1980s that 
commercial machm*> transla- 
tion systems have been avail- 
able for use with 
microcomputers. The leading 
firms offering these systems — 
ALPS (Automated Language 
Processing SystemsX Logos 
and Wradner — were all orig- 
inally American-based, 
though Weidner is now owned 
by a Japanese translation 



company called Bravice. 

Both ALPS and Weidner 
started in Utah, where the 
Mormon Church has its worid 
headquarters. The Mormons 
(the Church of Latter Day 
Saints) became interested in 
the 1970s in the possibility of 
using computers to help in 
translating their scriptures 
and other puWkations for use 
in worldwide missionary 
endeavours. Research was un- 
dertaken at Brigham Young 
University at Provo. 

Machine translation was 
found unsuitable for religious 
publications, but the research 
did produce “spin-off” in the 
development of systems for 
conmiercial use.

of the tremendous unsatisfied 
demand from an educated 
workforce for technical ma-

books to car workshop

have world-shaking con-

Report on Translating and the Computer 
By Geoffrey Kingscott 

The language business that 
was bom in Nuremberg 

Ninety per cent of the world’s 
population does not speak 
English, eves though in every 
coantry people who have deal- 
ings with the Americans or 
ourselves have Bade it their 
business to nnderstand 
English. 

ft is easy to forget that, 


in F-n gfiAj t he German 
tiefea, tite Japanese business- 
man, the Spanish hotelier or 
the Swedish engineer remain 
move at ease m their own 

they are buying* 
rather than setting, they want 
documentation to be in their 
own tongue. 

T® remain competitive* in- 
dustry needs to operate multi- 

lingnaOy and translation is 
suddenly becoming big 
basmess. 

Operating in structions for 
complex machinery* mainte- 
nance guides, specifica- 
tions, contracts, international 
treaties, regulations and de- 
crees — some of these docu- 
ments running into hundreds 
of pages - all have to be 
translated. 

How is the existing transla- 
tion service, fragmentary and 
unregulated, going to cope? 

There are two approaches to 
the answer: one is to increase 
the productivity as well as the 
number of human translators; 
the other is to use computers. • 

Until recently there were 
few full-time translators. 
Mach translation was done as 
a side-line by people with' 
other jobs who “happened to 
know** one or more I _ 

The quality of work done 
way was variable and output 
often low and unpredictable. 

Now* mternational institu- 
tions, governments and big 
companies have their own 
translation departments-. 

Smaller firms wthw age 1 

translation companies and 
agencies or place work directly 
with freelances. 

The larger translation com- 



Nuremberg trials: test case for translation and interpretation 


pany wiD usually have a 
Kflmffni of in-house trans- 
lators bid will also make use of 
freelances* while agencies of- 
ten act as little more than 
brokers between client and 
freelance. 

Laymen often confuse the 
terms translation and inter- 
pretation but in the language 
profession translation is used* 
for w r i tten work and inter- 
pretation for the spoken word. 

Both received recognition as ( 
professional occupations at 
the Nuremberg war crime 
tribunals. 

A mass of documentary 
evidence had to be translated 
from German En gfiah, 
French and Russian for the 
judges* connsel and defen- 
dants, and the entire proceed- 
ings had to be interpreted by 
teams of people rendering 
speeches into the various lan- 
guages almost simultaneously 
for participants to hear on 
headphones. 

This system was later 
adopted for the United Na- 
tions and for the growing 
number of international bodies 


created in the post-war worid. 

Today a number of univer- 
sities - Bradford, Salford, 
Bath* Heriot-Watt* Surrey 
amt Essex among them — as 
well as institutions such as the 
Polytechnic of Central 
London, run technically ori- 
ented undergraduate and post- 
graduate language courses ami 
are helping to dispel the image 
of the ineffectual languages 
graduate. 

At first the word processor 
was viewed as a marvellous 
editing ntarfiiw for trans- 
fetor who wanted to comet or 
improve his dictated work 
withoot the need for retyping. 

But now this is giving way to 
the concept of the translator 
working directly on to a key- 
board, using aD the text 
processing facilities to speed 
op operations. 

Current thinking is that the 
modem translator needs to 
have a computer work station 
with a range of facilities from 
looking up abstruse terminol- 
ogy to preparing the text in a 
camera-ready form for 
printing. 


post-editing and it is still a 
subject of discussion as to 
whether post-editing an auto- 
matically-generated transla- 
tion is aster than translating 
from scratch. 

What is becoming obvious 
is that a lot of attention has 
hitherto been paid to the 
systems and perhaps not 
enough to how to make the 
most use of them. 

Thing s are now moving 
ahead fast, along several paths 
at The commercial ma- 
chine translation companies 
are getting into their stride and 
expect to make big sales in the 
next few years. 

The use of Artificial Intelli- 
gence is evidently going to be 
the mam feature of the next 
generation of machine transla- 
tion — it will hdp computer 
systems to make inferences 
from contexts. 

A question often asked in 
the West these days is: “What 
stage have the Japanese 
reached in machine 
| translation?” They are known 
to be particularly interested in 
AI applications and investing 
heavily in them in other fields. 

Several major Japanese 
companies are working on 
marhTwp translation. The 
complexity of the Japanese 


langnagc, which means that it 
has no chanra of becoming a 
lingua franca, even in Asia, 
land the huge translation 
requirement of a country with 
an exports-led economy, make 
translation, even more im- 
portant to Japan than to any 
Western coantry. 

So for, machin e translation 
has been mainly confined to 
the leading ' commercial and

early next year is slightly 
'ironic, given its recent history 
in taking business away from 
IBM by virtue of Big Mae's 
own delay in ammmcmg its 
portable computer. 

Earlier this year. Zenith 
woo the lucrative US Internal 
Revenue Service contract for 
portable computers largely be- 
cause Zenith’s machine was 
ready to go and IBM’s wasn’t, 

The dine lag between 
announcement and s h ipment 
of the Zr386 is not rniawnri in 
the compoter industry and 
may merely have been a factor 
of Zenith wanting to make the 
initial unveiling of the ma- 
chine at this month's influen- 
tial Comdex show in Las 
Vegas, where company presi- 
dent Robert DOwerth sang the 
machine's praises. 

“OoerdM a Z-386 earn-

the Load Ansa Network

FAST 
work to 
beat the 
cheats 

By Frank Brown 

A major campaign to combat 
software piracy by computer 
users in businesses and 
organizations has been 
launched by the Federation 
Against Software Theft 
(FAST), an IT industry trade 
association based in London. 

The message that un- 
authorized copying of soft- 
ware is legally and morally 
wrong is ' being promoted 
through a floppy disc rived 
booklet entitled Thou shah 
not steal, which FAST is 
distributing to computer-us- 
ing organizations throughout 
die country. 

The booklet explains how 
the law protects software, and 
how unauthorized copying 
and use of .software damages 
the industry and users alike. 

launching the , campaign, 
FAST'S chairman Roger 
Tnkett, said: “Everyone now 
agrees software piracy is 
wrong. FAST is now asking 
major users to do something 
abotitit.” 

The police are how 
prosecuting commercial pi- 
rates and counterfeiters, he 
said, but FAST believes 
considerable unauthorized 
copying is taking place widun 
a number of computer-usbg 

MrTUkett said that FAST 
will be working together with 
the managements of these 
organizations to encourage all 
rfwrt pBTiip* and or ganizat ions 
which are licensed users of 
software to adopt appropriate 
policies and procedures. 

Last year, FAST staged a 
similar campaign called “Beat 
the Cheats” aimed at the IT 
industry, schools and educa- 
tion authorities. 

FAST was formed in 1984 
by a number of computer 
companies to lobby for mod- 
ernizing copyright law so that 
it provides foil protection of 
computer . software and 
microchip design. Member- 
ship includes more than 90 
firms and some trade associ- 
ations and is growing by about 
six a month; 

Its lobbying in Parliament 
met with a degree of early 
success with the Copyright 
(Compnter Software) Amend- 
ment Act, a Private Membere 1 
Bin wixfoh' became law in 
September 1985. 


Push from down under 

Australians are pushing forward in software and. are not 
backward in idling the work! about ft. Michael Johnson, the 
Australian senior trade commissioner, said at a conference in 
London to review the Australian computing-products industry: 
“Australian software technology has become recognized as 
bdneamong the best available ia the world. 

■ “The growth in the Australian market demand for p ac k ag e 
Solutions has been partly a function of the price of these prod- 
ucts compared io customs solutions and partly a response to the 
chronic shortage of qualified data-processnjg staff who can 
undertake contracted or in-house custom development.” .

A lot of people would give 
their eye-teeth to know what 
David Eggleton knows. As 
head of Information Systems 
Administration for BP, 
Britain’s largest company, 
with a £40 billion turnover, be 
has a good idea of what new 
developments can be expected 
in information technology 
during the next few years. 

Not only does he know what 
BP plans to do with its £230 
million annual information 
systems budget (which ex- 
cludes the BP-owned Scicon 
Computer Services Company 
and Sohio) this year and five 
years hence, be is also privy to 
the future strategies of IBM 
and Digital Equipment, the 
two major players in the 
world's computer market. 

- This privilege is given only 
to a select number of high- 
powered international com- 
puter users who, quite 
naturally, must sign non- 
disclosure agreements. 

Reporting to the board of 
BP, Mr Eggleton has a lower 
complement of staff than he 
did 22 years ago when be was 
deputy head of management 
services at ‘the De Havilland 
Aircraft Company in Hatfield. 
Then he had more than 60 
people under him and two 
years ago at BP when he 
controlled 300 staff providing 
information technology ser- 
vices throughout the Group. 
Today he has just 14 staff 


PEOPLE 


By Eddie Coulter 

who between them are respon- 
sible for information policies 
and strategies which form the 
base from which Bp's many 
business streams conduct 
their computing, office sys- 
tems and telecommunications 
operations. 

“Information in BP,” be 
says, “is regarded as a resource 
which ranks alongside cash 
and people. The role of 
Information Systems Admin- 
istration (ISA) is to provide a 
consistent infrastructure en- 
abling BP companies to ex- 
ploit information using 
information technology to 
provide a competitive ele- 
ment in their business 
activities.” 

His staff are not all informa- 
tion technology people. “They 
are high profile executives,” 
he explains. After spending 
two years on the ISA team, 
this new breed of professionals 
move into senior management 
taking information technology 
awareness to the heart of BP’s 
business streams. “They have 
a missionary role to play for 
information technology,” be 
says. 

He remains in the IT driv- 
ing seat aware that many ofbis 
policies will have to be im- 


plemented by BP'S 3^50 
information technology staff 
worldwide. 

For such a high-powered 
position Mr Eggleton is a 
remarkably relaxed individ- 
ual. This could be explained 
by his main hobby — fishing 
for pike on the River Clare in 
Suffolk or with one of his two 
grown-up sons along the 
hanks of the Avon mid Severn. 

Born in Harefield, Middle- 
sex, from a working class 
background, Mr Eggleton now 
lives in Hertfordshire. He left 
Bristol University with a de- 
gree in aeronautical engineer- 
ing and joined De Havffland 
where he took a post graduate 
course in production engineer- 
ing. By I960 he was involved 
m O & M, production control 
and computer systems, as one 
of the early systems analysts. 

Maintaining his interest in 
production engineering, he re- 
mained with computers 
through systems analysis and 
management positions at 
Texas Instruments and Bab- 
cock and Wilcox before join- 
ing the process engineering 
group, APV, as data process- 
ing manager in 1967. 

“It was an amazing experi- 
ence at APV,” he says. “I was 
just 31 and the managing 
director pointed to an empty 
car park and said: this is 
where you will build your 
computer centre’.” 

Ten years later when he was 


with STC he was to turn down 
the offer of a production 
directorship with APV. 

He describes himself as an 
“IT mercenary, not a 
technocrat” as fair as BP is 
concerned. Many computer 
people in the company start 
their career at BP or join at an 
early age, he explains. He was 
headhunted in 1978 at the age 
of 42 from his position as 
group manager of Systems and 
Data Processing at STC 

He became assistant general 
manager of computer systems 
at BP and general manager 
when his predecessor retired 
later that year. 

By 1980 it was clear that 
information technology would 
have a strong penetration into 
the BP group as a whole and in 
1981 the ISA department was 
set up under Brian Hitch from 
Sohio in die United States. 

This coincided with the 
restructuring of BP into vari- 
ous business streams and re- 
sulted in the creation of 
Information Systems Facil- 
ities in 1983 with Mr Eggl e ton 
in charge. When Brian Hitch 
returned to Sohio in 1984, Mr 
Eggleton moved into the num- 
ber one information strategy 
slot. 

As well as co-ordinating in 
IT policy worldwide, he also 
occasionally lectures at 
Massachusetts Institute of 
Technology (MIT).

A guide to

Planning for the good earth 


“Certain gardens and certain places have 
the same effect upon you as a fine 
painting or a stately building. Landscape 
is the poetry of place. All your senses are 
involved in the appreciation of land- 
scape. Although Nicholas Pevsner lias 
already pul forward architecture as the 
most comprehensive art form, the sister 
art of landscape design has an equal or 
greater claim to that title.” 

That was the answer given by John 
Medhurst when I asked him to define 
landscape architecture. He is one of two 
partners in the London Landscape 
Consortium, which has been responsible 
for many environmental improvements 
in London boroughs and the Docklands, 
as well as a great deal of work on projects 
such as motorways and bridges. 

An equally valid definition, perhaps, is 
the planning and design of external 
space. This can be on any scale, from the 
design of private gardens to the 
rehabilitation of laigs derelict industrial 
sites. 

An outstanding instance of this is the 
Stoke-on-Trent National Garden Festi- 
val sited on 164 acres formerly occupied 
by Shelton Steelworks. Before the trans- 
formation, it was described by Roger 
Butler, landscape architect in the parks 
and recreation department of the city 

The number of registered 
landscape firms is rising 

council, as a “desolate moonscape that 
typified all the problems Stoke had faced 
during its reclamation programme". 

More than half the Landscape 
Institute's members are in public 
employment, with about 5 per cent in 
leaching and the rest in private practice. 
Recently there has been an increase in 
the number of registered landscape 
practices. There is also a slow but 
continuing trend for firms of architects 
and civil engineers to take landscape 
architects on to their staff. Job prospects 
for the newly qualified remain good. 

Those in public sector employment 
are usually to be found in the planning, 
architect's or parks departments. David 
Randall, chief landscape architect of 
Berkshire, is also assistant county plan- 
ning officer. Planners, he says, are 
waking up to the fact that they can 
impose certain conditions on devel- 
opers. They can insist that buildings are 
properly sited and their settings properly 
designed. As a result, developers are 
realising that good landscape plans are 
often the easiest way of getting planning 
consent. 

“But we have no business as a 
planning authority saying to a developer 
that he must perform well in landscape, 
unless wc are prepared to do it ourselves 
on our own property. We must set an 
example." 

One such example consisted of the 
landscaping around the New Shire Hall. 


Landscape is described 
as the poetry of place 
and its appreciation 
involves all your senses. 
Joan Llewelyn Owens 
takes a closer look at 
the work of the 
environmental architect 

When the land was acquired from the 
Ministry of Defence, it was specified that 
the public should have free access to the 
grounds. Without wardening and fences, 
horticultural showmanship had to be 
ruled out. 

The object was not to attract people to 
come to stare but to make a pleasant 
setting for the buildings and reduce 
maintenance. “That is why you find the 
amount of mown grass is restricted to the 
front and there is massive use of ground 
cover.” .Another example was that of an 
internal courtyard to the library at 
Woodley, which bad been laid out as a 
Japanese garden. 

All landscape design within the county 
council said Mr Randall was now 
focused within the one department One 
side of their work was concerned with 
implementation — the design and the 
carrying out of work on schools, social 
service buildings, libraries and roads. 

The other side involved advice, not 
only to their planning colleagues within 
the department but also to district 
planning officers over the landscape 
impact of their larger schemes. Land- 
scape advice was always sought by 
planners when waste management or 
mineral operators sent in proposals for 
the opening up of new sites. 

“The landscape architect in this sort of 
authority," stressed Mr RandaU, “has to 
be constantly alert to the opportunities 
that arise." One case he cited was that of 
an idle oddly-shaped piece of land in the 
grounds of a comprehensive school, 
which was turned into an environmental 
teaching area. 

Some of the work undertaken by 
landscape architects in private practice is 
similar to that carried out in the public 
sector. John Medhurst often designs and 
supervises landscape schemes for civic 
buildings, urban paries and local 
authority housing, as well as for power 
stations, universities and office 
buildings. 

We visited some of the environmental 
improvements he had designed for the 
London Docklands Development 
Corporation and local councils. ‘"Simply 
by planting a tree in urban London you 
are helping to make that particular place 


more acceptable to people,” he said. 

One stop we made was at Jubilee 
Crescent, an old people's home ran by 
the Ship Workers’ Jubilee Housing 
Trust Here, a service road with brick 
paving and bays for cars ensured that 
they weren’t parked on the semi-circular 
lawn, which was divided into segments 
by low hedges of rosemary and vibur- 
num. Each house had a bed with a 
retaining wall which individual tenants 
had filled with their own choice of 
flowers. 

We also walked in the spacious garden 
of a hospice, which had once been a mass 
of builders’ rubble, and was now a 
tranquil place where patients could sit 
and perhaps be soothed by its imagi- 
native lay-out 

Mr Medhurst’s firm is small There are 
many much larger practices, with con- 
tracts both at home and overseas. In the 
UK. they may be involved in lug schemes 
such as landscaping for trunk roads, 
canal banks, dams, whole new towns, 
business and science parks, public parks, 
garden festivals and land reclamation. 

Government asks them to assess the 
environmental impact oC for example, 
new power stations or the Channel 
Tunnel In the Middle East they have 
designed the settings for new cities and 
universities, while the partners are often 


There is more than one 
roote to qualification 


appointed as environmental consultants 
by overseas governments. 

The principals of certain firms are 
sometimes dually or even triply quali- 
fied. These is more than one route to 
qualification. Some people take a post- 
graduate course after obtaining a first 
degree in architecture, planning, horti- 
culture, engineering or geography, or 
another relevant discipline. 

Over half take an undergraduate full- 
time course (usually of a sandwich type). 
A few do it the hard way, through the 
Landscape Institute's own examinations. 
The recognised professional qualifica- 
tion is Associate of the Landscape 
Institute. Applicants must gain graduate 
membership of the Institute, complete 
two years' professional experience and' 
pass the Institute's professional practice 
examination (Pan 4). 

Sir Geoffrey JeUicoe, first President of 
the International Federation of Land- 
scape Architects, called landscape 
architecture “the healing profession”. 

Today, this statement is truer than 
ever, as the landscape architect strives to 
make something reasonably acceptable 
which otherwise might not be. Land- 
scape architects are essentially problem- 
solvers. There is no room for willowy 
characters who lack business and prac- 
tical skills.

The de mur rage arbitration 
had been completed in 1980. hot 
the charterers had beard nothing 
more of the cargo claim until 
October 1983. 

His Lordship bad heard ev-

The appeal tribunal consid- 
ered that as a matter of law it 
would be open to an industrial 
tribunal to find that p ayment of 
a higher salary to a man than a 
woman doing the same work or 
work of equal value was genu- 
inely due to a material factor 
other than a difference in sex 
because the salary had not been 
reduced on dow ngradin g. 

Mr Allen bad argued that h 
was not open to a tribunal to 
find that demotion could be a 
material factor.

ered that thr industrial tribunal 
bad misdirected themselves m 
the way in which they consid- 


thar be should produce evidence 
that the woman’s job did not 
require the same degree of effort 
or sluU or decision making. 

In some cases an industrial 
tribunal would be entitled to say 
that there was no reasonable 
for arguing that her work 
was of equal value. 

Section 2A(2) of the Equal 
Pay Act seemed to limit an 
industrial tribunal's powers to 
stop a case in its tracks to cases 
where an employer had pro- 
duced a job evaluation study. 

It was unrealistic to expect 
small companies to have the 
time or expertise to indulge in 
that type of exercise. Guid a nce

applicants were earning £7,000;

justify the higher salary paid to 
Mr Hosain. The other two 
women had not. yet been the 
subject of evaluation because of 
the reference to an expert. 

However, with the possibility 
that they might be foundto be 
doing work of equal value with 
that per fo r m ed by Mr Hosain, 
the industrial tribunal, sensibly 
and correctly, examined the 
employers’ reliance on the es-

Mr Alkn, apart from support- 
ing the industrial tribunal’s 
finding that there was no demo- 
tion and therefore no defence of 
a material fector other than sex, 
submitted that it would not in 
any event be open to an 
industrial tribunal on a prelimi- 
nary issue to find against an 
applicant alleging work of equal 
value on the baas of a material 
factor defence. 

He argued that the effect of 
section l(2Kc) of the 1970 Act 
coupled who rule 7A was that 
equal- value could only be 
ascertained either where an 
employer had his own job 
evaluation or a job evaluation 
was made by an expert. 

If that ar g um ent was right the 
implications fix- employers, es- 
pecially in the case of small 
businesses were horrendous. It 
meant that wherever a man was 
put into a job and a woman who 
was paid less claimed that she 
was doing work of equal value, 
the employer had to come up 
with a job evaluation study or be 
faced with a reference to an 
expert fix- a report. 

The appeal tribunal preferred 
to think that all that was 
required of an employer was 


equal value.

The industrial tribunal had 
not erred in law in considering 
the material factor defence be- 
fore applying their minds to rale 
7A. But they bad misdirected 
themselves when considering 
whether the employers had 
proved a demotion in fact On 
that aspect the matter would be 
considered afresh.

Responsibility for enforcing safety regulations 


Hadley v Hancox and Another 

Before Lord Justice Croom- 
Johnson and Mr Justice Peter 
Pain 

[Judgment November 14] 

When the main activity car- 
ried on in any premises changed 
from one where responsibility 
fix the enforcement of the 
pro vi s i o n s of the Health and 
Safety at Work etc Act 1974

on March 11, 1986 the pros- 
ecutor laid informations against 
the defendants. The question 
arose as to whether the local 
authority was the proper person 
to have brought the proceedings. 

It was an agreed fact at the 
hearing before the justices that 
until some time m 1984 the 
main activity carried on in the 
premises was one of manufac- 
turing and hence the enforcing 
authority was the executive. 

However from 1984 the main 
activity at the premises changed 

andrctail distribution. 

The executive was established 
by section 10 of the 1974 Act 
and its duties defined by section 
1 1(5). Section 15(2) grant ed the 
secretary of state power to make 
regulations for any of the gen- - 
era! purposes of the Act.

tire -transfer procedure under 
regulation 5 of the Health and 


Regulations (SI 1977 No 74

Accordingly, the Queen’s 
Bench Divisional Court allowed 
an appeal by case stated by the 
prosecutor, Mr G^A- Hadley.

cil. from a decision of Warley 
Justices sitting at Old HXO on 
June 5, 1986. that since the

had not been carried out, the

the 1974 Act against the defen- 
dants,-Sdney Hancox and Peter

authority to the executive. 

Accordingly, tire 1977 Regula-

on in tire premises was specified

premises were situated ^*shaH 


Mr Roderick Henderson fix- 
tire prosecutor; Mr Stephen 
Migdal for tire defendants. 

LORD JUSTICE CROOM- 
JOHNSON said that the 
defendants' premises at Rowley 
Regis were until recently used 
primarily as a mill rolling oats. 

There was an -acridem at the 


be" the enforcing authority. 

Schedule I contained "tire 
sale or storage ofgoods for retail 
and wholesale distrib uti on” as 
one of tire activities which came 
within the ambit of local 
authority enforcement. 

R e gu l a tion S which was 
beaded "A rran gements e na bl in g 
responsibility for enforcement 
to be transferred” provided by 
regulation 5(1) that responsibil- 
ity fix enf or ce m ent might be 
transferred between the local 
authority and the executive 
under a procedure outlined in 
that regulation. 

Tbd defendants submitted be- 
fore tire justices that althoug h 
their mam . activity had 
1984 been lire storage ofgoods 
which was covered try 
1 of the 1977 Regulations and 
therefore was to be dealt with by 
the local authority, tire local 
authority did not become the 
enforcing, authority until the 
procedure under regulation 5 
had been gone through. 

Ft was submitted on behalf of 
the local authority rhat regula- 
tion 3, which laid down the 
activities in Schedule 1 far 
which tire local authority was to 
be the enforcing authority, was 
mandatory as tire words used 
were that tire local authority 
“shall be” the enforcing 
authority, and that regulation 5 
was permissive because the 
words-were that responsibility 
“maybe” transferred. 

: It was dear beyond doubt that 
there had to be someone who 
bad. tire duty and obligation to 
enforce the relevant statutory 
provisions. Whether it was tire 
executive or local authority 
depended bn tire particular case. 

One started with the exec- 


utive under the 1974 Ad but the 
1977 Regulations laid down tire 
activities which “shall be” tire 
responsibility of the local 
authority. 

If tire activities changed, then 
from the time of the change they 
ceased to be the responsibility of 
tire executive and became' the 
responsibility of the local 
authority. It when tire activities 
changed enforcement became 
tire subject of the complicated 
procedures of regulation 5, there 
would be extra work and delay. 

Regulation 5 was only permis- 
sive and was not to be read as 
qualifying regulation 3. Which 
was quite dear. Regulation 5 
only indicated when the' exec- 
utive could take on tire local 
authority’s work and when the 
local authority could uf* cm the 
executive's work. 

Since tire defendants' activ- 
ities fell dearly wi thin Schedule 
1 , tire proper peraon to enfixne 
the statutory provisions was the 
local authority. 

MR JUSTICE PETER PAIN, 
agreeing, said that it was dear 
that regulation 3 of the 1977 
Regulations meant what it said. 
Regulation 5 rim ply contained 
ancillary provisions which dealt 
with the position where it might 
be administratively convenient 
in a particular case. 

There was no doubt that as a 
matter of law the enforcin g 
authority changed when tire 
main activity drungud. The 
construction contended for by 
the defendants would lead, to 
intolerable inconvenience. .-

Even if the doctrine had

Duane’s fitness in question 

By Keith Madeira 


The injury-dogged inter- 
national career of Ronnie 
Duane suffered another setback 
yesterday when Duane, recalled 
to play for Great Britain in foe 
third inte rnation al at Wigan on 
Saturday, reported to the c o a c h , 
Maurice Bam ford, that be had 
injured bis back on Sunday. 

Duane, a long-striding centre 
three quarter, had fought his 
way back to international recog- 
nition after being injured on the 
1984 tour of Australasia. He was 
having a check-up late last night. 


and Bamford will mate a de- 
cision today. 

The other doubtfols, Basncn, 
Gill. Schofield, Pinner. 
Marcham and Myler are all 
expected to be fit to take partin

be permitted to terror iz e England?” And, 
indeed, why should a small proportion of them 
be exported to terrorize Europe? 

Football, for more than a century, has been 
and still often is a ample, sometimes beautiful 
and frequently dramatic game that is classless 
and faceless in its universal appeal. It is unfair 
that malevolent elements in society, too often 
encouraged by indiscipline and inefficiency 
within football, exploit football’s public arena. 

Ted Crater's unfortunately ill-judged thrust 
at Mis Thatcher truthfully claimed that 
hooligans were not the property of football but 
the nation. Yet in the eyes of those not 
associated with the game, football is seen as 
being an accomplice to evil as much as the 
pornography shop winch sold a mask to the 
Cambridge rapist. 

Almost any price is, therefore, worth paying 
for football to hdp rid rtsdf of this scouige, yet 
too few in football are prepared to acknowl- 
edge this as Luton have done. Luton's reward 
is peace and safety for the uninvotved 
population .-■of the town on a Saturday 
afternoon. 

Nobody seems able to provide a gross figure 
for the Football League income from visiting 
chib support e rs, yet the League claims it is - 
essential for surrivaL Measured against police 
costs, tins cannot be so, when marauding 
visitors are numbered mainly in hundreds 
.rather than - the thousands of Manchester - 
United, Chelsea, Everton and a few others. 

This week Douglas Hogg, from the Home 
Office, and Richard Tracey, the Minister for 
Sport, have farther meetings with Bert 
Millichip and Croker, of foe FA, and Philip 
Carter and Graham Kelly, of foe Football 
League, for discussion on the membership 
scheme demanded by the Prime Minister. 
Hogg win report to the Home Secretary. 

In defence of football's attitude, against 
accusations by Ndl Madariane, foe previous 
Minister for Sport, that administrators have 
dragged their met, Millichip repeated in The . 
Times last Saturday the cautious view that a 
compulsory identity card scheme “might wdl 
achieve nothing but killing, off professional 
football once and for alL” This makes the 
question whether football is not already killing 
itself . 

Lengthy discussions which I have had with 
both Millichip and Carter reveal, as you would 
expect, a grave and responsible concern with 
the problem, yet it is evident that within the 
ranks of those around than there are only 
short-term solutions, over-ridingly governed 
by financial considerations, for the long-term 

“Ibdicve Luton should be supported, even 
though the management committee voted 
them,” Jonh Smith says, with his 


authority of both chairman of Liverpool and 
the Sports Council. “We should be backing 
anything that any club can do to eradicate 
hooliganism. I deplore that Luton were not 
supported. It was narrow-minded.” 

Yet he is almost the only significant figure in 
the League to have supported David Evans. 
The League, desperate to climb back 'on to the 
European carousel, seeks medicine rather than 
surgery. 

“We need to be radical, really strict, and get 
down to the roots,” Evans said before a 
splendid match against Forest last Saturday. 
“Anybody wanting to watch professional 
football should have to be affiliated to the FA 
or foe Leagwty an identity canL They should 
do so because they want to be proud to 
demonstrate that they belong to an organiza- 
tion which is for members only and doesn’t ad-

David Evans: Radical solution 


mit people who kick over the during room 
table. It should be respectable, not furtive, to 
say that you are a football fan, and in 
brooming a member you should expect 
security. Here at Luton, we’ve gone over the 


Stoning next season, it is Luton’s proposal 
to offer 500 computerized tickets to each 
visiting dub, with the computer identity 
cancelled after each match; the following 
season, 1,000 tickets. Anyone arrested, Evans 
suggests, should be harmed for life from 
attending football, and anyone fiddling a 
second identity card through a relative or 
friend and again arrested should be punished 
in foe courts. 

Football’s justifiable complaint against gov- 
ernment in the past has been inadequate 
penalties imposed in the courts. Changes in 
the Public Order Act have hardened the 
position, as have the new regulations on 
alcohol consumption. The Government m 
return looks for more collaboration on 
membership schemes. 

Football's argument is that identity cards 
are. firstly, difficult and expensive to admin- 
ister for crowds of say, more than 20,000, and 


secondly, are an infringement of freedom 
traditionally enjoyed by spectators. A defi- 
nition of freedom, however, is the liberty to 
behave unimpeded so long as the freedom of 
others is not impaired. Football long ago 
crossed this social boundary. 

The ONLY argument today for tolerating 
off-the-cuff visiting supporters —as opposed to 
those who, like theatre-goers, are prepared to 
book seals in advance — is financial: mid even 
that factor can be seen to be self-defeating. 

In the days before teenage wages and cheap 
travel, visiting crowds were almost non- 
existent and watching football was a pleasure. 
All foal changed in foe sixties, when, allegedly, 
we never had it so good. Crowd involvement 
was exhorted by prominent manage such as 
Bill ShankJy, whose wefi-intentioned but 
absurd maxim that football was more im- 
portant than life and death found gullible 
disciples. Many of us, I fear, were drawn into 
the web of acceptance of spectator involve- 
ment, foe cull of the ordinary. 

This philosophy reached its nadir when Ron 
Atkinson praised the supporters of Manches- 
ter United from the steps of the City Hall for 
having helped the team at Wembley “save” a 
Cup Fmal after having a man sent off. It is not 
without significance that Manchester United 
were one of those dubs seeking to restore then- 
position in European football by legal action. 

Both Millichip and Smith reluctantly con- 
cede that England’s re-admission into Europe 
next season would be premature. “Fve seen 
nothing to make me alter the view I expressed 
six months ago,” Smith says, “even though 
many European dub chairmen have told me 
they will not be happy until English dubs are 
playing again.” 

“One riot and we shall be 
out again for all tune” 

Comments in a speech by Millichip at a 
centenary dinner of Shrewsbury Town, re- 
ported out of context, suggested a return was 
acceptable to UEFA, and imminent. This was, 
and is, not so. “I'm doubtful if we’re ready, be- 
cause of the situation of law and order in the 
country in general,” Millichip says. “We shall 
be exceedingly worried (when the time comes) 
at pur first exposure back in Europe. Any 
decision to return has to be justified. One riot, 
and we shall be out again for all time.” 

That return, by the England XI rather than 
fry dubs, will occur in 1988, if the team 
qualify, in the European Championship finals 
in West Germany, where. Millichip admits, 
foe German fans wifi be waiting for us. 
England has been fortunate that following 
Heysei, the World Cup finals were in distant 
Mexico and that the opposition in the 
European qualifying competition is in rel- 
atively distant Turkey and Yugoslavia and 
domestic Belfast. 

“We are foe only country that exports our 
hooligans,” Millichip says, reflecting lhat the 
European finals of 1984 were noticeably 


peaceful when England failed to qualify. “How 
can we expect UEFA to organize its com- 
petitions specifically to take account of our 
hooligans?” 

Already, Millichip and Crokerare receiving 
taunting letters from so-called England 
supporters saying “see you in Germany” and 
boasting foal they are National Front or wifi 
pay for foe trip with DHSS subsidies. 

With everybody in the game agreed that the 
only possible future for English participation 
in overseas football is for the total exdusion of 
visiting fans — Millichip, Carter and Smith are 
all adamant on this — why cannot Football 
League dubs accept the corollary in their own 
competition? 

Football offers the biggest 
opportunity for a punch-up 

Carter correctly says it is an illusion that 
there are problems every Saturday at all 46 
League matches, and asks by what standards 
behaviour in England is being judged by 
UEFA when considering a possible return: 
especially when trouble is equally apparent in 
The Netherlands, West Germany, Italy, Spain 
and even foe Soviet Union? “Where is our 
representation in UEFA,” Carter asks plain- 
tively, a reflection upon Britain's dearth of 
leaders nowadays within the international 
governing organizations. 

He points to foe statistics of foe Police 
Federation: arrests 44 per cent down in 1985- 
S6; that arrests were for less violent offences; 
that dosed circuit television, now installed at 
all first and second division grounds, is 
increasingly effective in reversing foe thugs' 
motivation - football offers the biggest 
opportunity for a punch-up with the smallest 
possibility of detection. 

Yet so long as supporters are able to travel 
without membership cards, the risk of 
disruption remains. Events this season at 
Middlesbrough, Exeter and Darlington, and 
more notably on foe cross-Channd ferries 
transporting Manchester fans, have proved 
this. 

John Smith says that European fin al* should 
in future be home and away (like the UEFA 
Cup) with no visiting supporters; but this, as 
Millichip has pointed out, is tailoring Euro- 
pean football for the convenience of England’s 
ailment. Never mind that foe Belgian admin- 
istration at Heysei was contemptuously inept 
beforehand and on match day. 

The view within football tends to be: shift 
the trouble from inside foe stadium into the 
streets and then it’s up to foe Government. 
Where I would take issue with both Millichip 
and Carter is that the illness is society's and 
football is an integral pan of society. For 20 
years or more professional football, obsessed 
with money, has turned a blind eye on 
mo rality and is now reaping foe whirlwin d.

RACING: DANCING BRAVE MOVES INTO HIS NEW HOME 

Owen Glendower well 
treated by today’s 
weights at Southwell 


By Mandarin (Michael Phillips) 

Following that runaway win Owen Glendower to run off 

his old rating from which be 


at Fontwel! Park a fortnight 
ago Owen Glendower. is 
napped to win the Hawthorn 
Handicap Chase at Southwell 
today. 

There are two important 
considerations to bear in mind 
when deciding whether or not 
to support Richard Holder's 
useful yet lightly raced nine- 
year-old this afternoon. 

The first is the fact that his 
weight does not include a 
penalty for the Fontwell wm 
because it was a conditional 
jockey’s race where they are 
exempt. The second is that be 
made all the running and won 
by 12 lengths on what was his 
first appearance on a race- 
course for more than a year. 

Not surprisingly the handi- 
capper has been quick to take 
that into account when 
compiling future handicaps, 
so much so that Owen Glen- 
dower will be meeting today's 
rivals Valley Justice and Su- 
preme Bid and Woodburgh on 
eight pounds better terms than 
he would in similar races at 
Ludlow and Nottingham next 

So this is the last chance for 


has recently won by a very 
wide margin indeed. In my 
view those are compelling 
reasons to back him to win 
again and be is preferred to 
Bronwyn, an old rivaL 

Apart from the recent 
Unoxeter winner. Yellow 
Stag, the field for the Birch 
Novices’ Chase includes two 
other interesting recruits to 
the ranks of sieeplechasing. 
Green Gorse and Sandicliffe 
Boy. 

Green Gorse. a winner of 
two long distance handicap 
hurdles at Newcastle and 
Doncaster last season, will be 
far fitter than when he ran well 
on his seasonal debut at 
Wetheiby at the end of 
October. 

Sandicliffe Boy showed use- 
ful form on the Flat before 
being sold to the former 
champion amateur rider Peter 
Green all, who won four point- 
to-points with him last spring. 
Saudicliffe Boy was only sold 
again, this time at Doncaster 
in August for 24,000 guineas, 
when Greenall decided to 


retire and disperse his 
bloodstock. 

My feeling is that the experi- 
ence which Sandicliffe Boy 
gained in the hunting and 
point-to-point field will stand 
him in good stead, and he is 
preferred to Green Gorse. 

Postdyne, who was runner- 
up to that much improved 
chaser Seven Sound at the last 
meeting can go one better m 
the Poplar Conditional 
Jockeys' Handicap chase. 

Following that short head 
defeat by Patrick’s Star at 
Hexham recently Fanny 
Robin should be capable of 
winning the Carlton Selling 
hurdle at Sedge field. I can 
easily envisage Gordon Rich- 
ards and Phil Tuck winning 
three of the races there, with 
Centre Attraction (1.30); Tar- 
tan Twilight (2.30) and Aririn - 
sons (3.30). 

Centre Attraction has a 
seven pound penalty, in the 
Red Marshall Handicap 
Chase, for winning at Kelso 
last week bin so too does his 
principal rival Go wan House 
for a victory at Carlisle. Bui 
this two mile trip should suit 
Centre Attraction. 



BOXING : 

Television 
boost 
for young 
hopefuls 

Television viewers will have 
the chance to spot potential 
champions thanks to a new 
venture between the promoters. 
Mike Barrett and Micky Doff, 
and BBC Telcvison. 

Beginning on Thursday, regu- 
lar shows featuring outstanding 
prospects are to be staged at the 
York Hall, Bethnal Green, with 
the top two bouts being tele- 
vised on Grandstand the follow- 
ing Saturday afternoon. After 
eight shows at three weekly 
intervals, viewers will be asked 
to vote for the outstanding 
prospect and he wiD receive a 
trophy and £5,000. 

Thursday's bill features the 
rofessional debut of Daren 
_ >yer. a welterweight, who won 
this year's ABA title with a 
series of six wins inside the 
distance nnr ^ followed that by 
taking the Commonwealth 


consummate ease. Dancing Brave will begin his staid dories in the spring. (Photograph: Chris Harris) 

Noble Minstrel disqualified 


Noble Minstrel, the EugBsh 
trained colt, has been disquali- 
fied from first place in the group 
two Criterion de Maison- 
Laffitte which was ran on Octo- 
ber 31. 

Olivier Docrieb, the colt's 
trainer, was informed that the 


routine post-race dope test had 
proved positive to the prohibited 
substance dipyrome. 

A Maison-LafStte vet gave 
the horse a pa in killing rejection 
to calm him down after he had 
travelled badly, and this con- 
tained the offending material.

• The Racecourse Association is to reconstruct its press and publicity organisation, 
tbe Racing Information Bureau. The R.I.B. is lo be re-named the Racecourse Pub-

been appointed principal Press Editor. Sir Peter Leng. RPA chairman, said: “My 
board is keen to improve the public's awareness of racing, and 10 develop the market-

action again after injuring his 
back at Leicester yesterday. 

*T don't quite know what I've 
done to it," said the jockey. “But 
I shall obviously have to have 
some treatment. I hope to 
resume riding again at Kemptcm 
Park on Thursday.” 

David Nicholson, the trainer, 
said that he wanted Dunwoody 
back in the saddle for 
Newbury's important weekend 
meeting, where the jockey’s 
mounts indude Voice Of 
Progress on Friday and Charier 
Party in the. Hennessy Cognac 
Gold Cup on Saturday. 

“He's had six fells in pretty 
quick succession,” said the 
Gloucestershire trainer. “Any 
jockey is bound to be shaken up 
after that. What he needs is a 
couple of day’s rest” 

The da magi* was inflicted 
when Woodside Road slipped 
on the final bend before finish- 
ing second to Fireworks Night in 
the John O'Gaunt Novices 
Chase.“The horse's bead came 
up and hit mine, and that did 
something to my back,” added 
the jockey. 

The John O'Gaunt Chase was 
certainly a chapter of accident 
before Woodside Road finished 
second. 

Rising Forest, the 5-2 on 
fevourite, was expected to fol- 
low-up his recent Southwell 
victory for Jimmy Fitzgerald, 
but, dismayed his supporters by 
felling at the third fenixs. 

There were only four survi- 
vors from the eight runners as 
Steve Smith Ecdes rode Fire- 
works Night to an easy victory 
for John Rose, the owner- 
breeder. and Nicky Henderson, 
tbe trainer. 

Predictably, Henderson had 
little news of See You Then, the 


to win last season's Champion 
Hurdle. “At least he’s started 
cantering,” he said, with a smile. 

The only one of Dunwoody’s 
mounts to be placed was Echo 
Sounder. After moving up to 
look dangerous early in the 
suaigbt, the 7-4 favourite could 
only finish third behind Numer- 
ate, who completed a long-range 
treble for Oliver Sherwood, who 
also saddled two winn ers at 
Windsor. 

Tbe stewards were certainly 
kept busy after the Thorpe 
Satchville Hurdle. After Kevin 
Mooney had driven Quikmtaro

The authorities bdd separate 
inquiries into the riding Dark i 
Ivy, the of mount of John 
Quinn, who third, and 

into the running of That's Your 
Lot, the 2-1 favourite, who was 
pulled up on the final bend. 

The stewards asked why 
Q uinn had appeared to take j 
matters easily on Dark Ivy, who ! 
finished four lengths behind his | 
stable companion. Music Be I 
Magic. 

They accepted the jockey's 
explanation that he was told to 
lie dose to tbe pace, and on no 
account to knock tbe horse < 
about nor use his whip behind ■ 
the saddle as the horse had 
become soured-off when trained 
in Ireland. 

They also accepted tbe 
explanations of Smith Ecdes, 
That’s Your Lot jockey, and of | 
Miriam Francome, wife of the 
trainer. “The gelding made mis- 
takes, was never going wdL was 
swamped on the final bend and 
as something was obviusly 
amiss, the jockey decided to poll 
him op.” said Mrs Francome.

New York agent, Don Majeski, 
to sound oat the possibility of

champions, Witherspoon is foe 
dosest in style and power to Bey, 
so that is very encouraging-” 
Witherspoon defends bis 
WBA crown against Tony 
Tubbs in New York next

lives in Anstialia. “I'm one of

The purpose of the series is to

Largely, though, fas problems are 
within fas mind. “On the coni 1 try to

sometimes, winning or losing, I suddenly 
fed depressed. Fm controlling ft modi

am going to hare a psychologist to teach

solitude “not saying a word to anyone.*' 
Then h e wffl emerge from Ids «M), 
“start laughing, r ** aft ” i E and having a

week of partying can be followed by a 
month of withdrawal. 

1 doubt if there is mnch wrong with the 
young man that some extra self-con-

could not core. He is a sensitive, 
considerate and surprisingly mature 
person who gives nracb of tfea credit for 
his achievements to fas father, Bengt, a 
dentist, and his motto-, Ulla, a physio-

Another major factor is the system 
where, especially in snail towns, from 


which almost all top players have 
emerged, youngsters are given priority; 
those in the junior squad nave the best 
court times, between two and six pm. “At 
my dab in onr small 'town of lSjOQQ 
people near Goteborg,’* be recalls, “there 
were three indoor courts bat 400 kids 
wanting to play: if yon were given a 
chance to join the junior squad, you had 
to keep fighting for the privilege.” 

His junior career indnded a win over 
Stefan Edberg in a Swedish jnnkr final.

iced players 
and it’s a matter of idling them 
what you require in training. 
The coach can’t be out there 
calling the moves on Sate 
afternoons. If the captain 
vice-captain don’t do that in 
training they won’t on toepark. 

Judging by toe internationals 
played in France, the balance in 
New Zealand’s midfield is not 
right and their scrummaging 
requires more work, though that 
is an area which has been 
influenced by the “de- 
powering” moves brought into 
New Zealand rugby, for safety 
reasons, over toe last two years. 
Next season senior rugby in 
New Zealand will be played 
trader International Rugby- 
Board regulations ami, in any 
case, the players who toured 
France will be better for their 
experience; and five from injury 
(half of last Saturday’s Ah 
Blacks pack were carrying inju- 
ries of one sort or another). 

Also they are among the best 
rugby analysts in toe world: “I 
think New Zealand rides are 
better when they have had a kick 
in the pants.” Lochore said 
quietly as his team washed their 
wounds in toe BeanjofaJ Sta- 
dium. “They wih think more 
about their game, their presenta- 
tion, their individual drills. 

“To win the World Cup you 
have to play six ma inly and 
win the lot, or maybe drop just 
one. Sax Tests in a month is 


c reate d over-anxiety, blinking hard work, it will test 
reflected on the field ami <ih i 


nethaflylayen: 

Bat I doubt if 


and skills of a lot 
of players.” Lochore may worry 
that New Zealand wih be. only 
two months into their season 
when the tournament comes 
round next May but be can 
recall the condition of his 
players when their season finally 
ended last weekend; northern 
hemisphere rides will be in a not 
dissi mi la r state next May after a 
long domestic season, the Five 
Nations championship and 
FIRA games. 


Although rather 
fag, his crphnalfan was retac- 
tandy n the tone 

because of an obvious abortive 
of adequate information from 
toe Sonet side. No w, man fan 
a year later, with the scalps of 
World Ora nations Bke Roma- 
nia, Italy, Zimbabwe and Japan 
under their beU as wefl as some 
useful wins against p ow erful 
French sel e ctions, tire Rnwrian s 
fact they have proved then- point 
and seem willing to disclose 
details of tbeir banglerf attempt 
to join the World Cup. 

“First and foremost the Soviet 
Union is not affiliated to toe 
International Board,** Bobkov 
said . “We are members of the 
French-based FIRA. On toe 
other hand South Africa are 
members of the Board and we 
would have nothing to do with 
them. So when the Board 
approached ns we went to.our 
representative body, tout Is 
FIRA, and said that we weald be 
happy to play la toe World Cap 
if South Africa are not among 
»fc* paxtfdpants.” 

So in a way one can saftiy say 
that the Soviet ride has bwm g ht. 

it ea itself by setting pre- 

condRhnai which the Board are 
bound to rtjecL I can recall that

“I wanted to get the best 
players in New Zealand away, 
out of New Zealand and create a 
new team, without any pres- 
sures, and hopefully to be 
reasonably successful,” Lochore 
said. “We have been able to 
achieve that. We have improved 
quite a lot on tour and we have 
some young players who may 
not have made the Test side but 
who have performed extremely 
wefl.” 

Lochore denied there has 
been any dissection wi thin the 
teams, which have represented 
New Zealand the year, despite 
the changes in personnel and the 
fadings raised by the Cavaliers’ 
tour to South Afiica. But there 
were many pressures from out-

Patricia Johnson — from here

Arsenal, listens avidly to Wham 
and, at the age of 20, is one of 
the best amateur golfers in 
Britain. Next year she hopes to 
be one of the best professional 
golfers on this side of the 
Atlantic. The year after that foe 
wants to make her mark in 
America.

at a dub in Dallas. 

“Julie Foster (now a Welsh

she'd been to David, so 1 wrote 
to him asking if be could help 
me. 1 was quite surprised when 
the reply came back: ‘Yes, come 
out. Just find the air fare and 
we’ll put you up’.” 

She went out for three weeks 
and Clay did not puQ any 
punches. “He almost told me 1 
was awful and we just about 
started again,” Trish, an Eng- 
land international at the time,

A source at the Royal Penh 
Yacht Club has confirmed that 
the Braid syndicate received a 
wanting over 'rigged* races last 
week. “We nearly threw them 
out and took the points away,” 
foe source said. The in extent 
stems from the race between 
Australia III and Australia IV 
last Monday, when Australia HI 
fed throughout At the final 
leeward mark the margin was a 
huge five minutes 38 seconds 
but at the finish, Australia IV 
took the gun by five seconds. 

Helicopter video for the 
Australian television pool 
showed foe final beat fa detail. 
'It was rigged,” said the Ameri- 
can cable television com- 
mentator, Gary Jobson. “I've 
seen the tape with foe yachts 
fling at 90 degrees to one 
another.” Jobson is a highly- 
respected 12-metre sailor and 
was tactician on Courageous 
when she won fa 1977. 

At Sunday night's news con- 
ference Cohn Beashd and lain 
Murray were asked if their in- 
house races were being or- 
chestrated. “No comment.” 
both skippers answered, the 
only point at which they agreed 
in an evening of considerable 
friction over the collision be- 
tween the two yachts. 

Stan Reid, Royal Perth's 
America's Cup chairman, has 
publicly warned both Bond and 
Kookaburra syndicates against 
team sailing — specifically 
forbidden under the ‘blue book* 
rules of the International Yacht 
Racing Union which govern the

races where the Kookaburras 
are so dose. They seem to be 
staged," Jobson said. 

But whereas the Royal Perth 
are unlikely to jump on the 
Kookaburras, Jobson believes 
they are on a wrong tack. “What 
Australia need is a strong de- 
fence and to do that they need to 
have real races between 
themselves,” said Jobson, who, 
until July, was the designated 
tactician for Heart of America. 

The international jury have 
decided to support broadly foe 
British position that a new keel 
for a challenging yacht may be 
cast fa Australia. The proviso fa 
that the jury must foil give 
specific approval fa each in- 
dividual case. 

Yacht Club Italiano, who 
uncovered foe foundry where 
the British cast a koti, submitted 
the issue to the jury last Friday. 
It is uncertain whether foe 
motive was that Italia wanted to 
do the foe same thing or whether 
they hoped to organize a protest

weeks fa the year, the rest of the

too best player in the world. “I 
don't work hard enough at foe 
moment” she said, “hut J do

It did not take Nottin gham 

Panthers long to come back, to 

earth after Saturday’s success fa 
foe Norwich Union Cup. They 
led 3-1 early fa Sunday’s game 
with Durham Wasps but 
Saturday’s exertions took their 

toll and, as Fanibcra tired, foe 

home side scored five unan- 

swered goals fa the final period. 

Saturday's losing finalists, 
Fife Flyers, also suffered on 
Sunday, going down 14-2 
against Munsyfleld Racers, 
their biggest margin of defeat in 
the Hefaeken League. Flyers 

had some excuses — they were 

without their injured goal render 

Andy Donald — but with Tony 
Hand (five goals) and Rick Fera 

(four goals) fa such devastating 

form. Racers would probably 
lave won anyway. 

Dundee remained top of the 
division with a thrilling 8-7 win 

at Sotihnlt Gary McEwan scor- 

ing the winning goal with two 
minutes to go. It was even closer 

at Streatham where the Red- 

skins took the lead for the first 
time in the match with two-and- 

a-half minutes to go, only for 
Jim Earle to tie the game for 
Whitley with 23 seconds 
remaining. 

The folly of an oversize first 
division, with an enormous gap

ceded 56 goals fa' their two 
weekend games.

them 32-9 with their F innish

ing II goals and seven assists. 
This kept foe Lions on top of the

THE TIMES TUESDAY NOVEMBER IS 1986 


FOOTBALL: VIOLENCE WILL HAVE SCORED A VICTORY IF THE WELSH HAVE TO PLAY THEIR HOME TIE AT YORK 


Caernarfon hooligans 
may have booted 
the Cup out of town 


By Paul Newman 


Caernarfon Town tear that 
crowd disturbances during 
their FA Cup first round 
victory over Stockport County 
on Saturday may prevent 
them from staging their big- 
gest match for nearly 60 years. 

The Welsh dub were yes- 
terday drawn at home to York 
City in the second round but a 
meeting with police officials 
this morning will determine 
whether the venue must be 
switched. A small group of 
Stockport followers invaded 
the pitch twice on Saturday 
and held up play on both 
occasions. There were IS 
arrests. 

Arfon Roberts, the Caernar- 
fon chairman, said yesterday: 
“It's tragic that a gang of about 
100 yobs can spoil it for 
everybody. They were drink- 
ing heavily and causing trou- 
ble in the town before the 
game and came here intent on 
stopping the match and 
wrecking the ground. They 
even tried to gel at their own 
manager and players. 

“"Hie only way to stop 
people like that is to cage them 
in but we simply can't afford 
to spend thousands of pounds 
on equipmment that may 
never be used again. I under- 
stand York have no record of 
crowd trouble, and would be 
careful about whom they sold 
tickets to, but that may not be 
enough. 

“If we are forced to concede 
home advantage it would be a 
victory for the yobs. I will feel 
so sorry for our supporters 
because this would have been 
the biggest game in the town 
for 57 years.” 

Caernarfon, who lost to 
Bournemouth in a replay 


when they East reached the 
second round in 1 929. have an 
average gale of only 400 and 
exist on a tight budget “If we 
got into the third round and 
drew a big club it could give us 
financial security for years to 
come." John King, the man- 
ager, said. 

York, however, will be a 
substantial obstacle in 
Caernarfon's path. They led

at Friekley on Saturday, are 
clear favourites to go through 
to what would be a fascinating 
tie between the two most 
successful Cup giant-killers of 
modern limes. Altrincham 
have knocked out 1 1 League 
sides in the fast 1 3 years. 

Telford won 4-0 when the 
two sides met in the GM 
Vauxhall Conference three 
weeks ago but Stan Storton, 
Telford's manager, warned 
yesterday: “If Altrincham are 
our opponents it will be a very 
tough match. They will prob- 
ably compete more than Bum- 
ley 'did on Saturday and will 
play it very tight at the back. 
We won't underestimate them 
because we know them well 
and their record speaks for 
itself.” 

The draw could provide 
Maidstone United and Bognor 
Regis Town with the chance to 
repeat recent giant-killing 
performances. Maidstone 
knocked out Exeter City three 


years ago and will face them 
ifthi 


the third division earlier this 
year and in the Cup in the last 
two years have knocked out 
.Arsenal and taken Liverpool 
to a replay. 

Telford United, the other 
non- League team to beat 
League opposition in 
Saturday's first round, now 
entertain Altrincham or 
Friekley Athletic. That ends 
their remarkable sequence of 
14 successive draws against 
League opposition. 10 of 
which they have won. 

Altrincham, having drawn 


again if the two sides win their 
replays against Welling 
United and Cambridge 
United respectively. Replays 
will also dictate whether 
Bognor return to the scene of 
their triumph at Swansea City 
two years ago. 

The tie that would stir most 
memories, however, would be 
Wolverhampton Wanderers, 
who must first win their replay 
tonight at home to Choriey, 
against Preston North End. 
Wolves have won the Cup 
four times and Preston twice 
and although both are now in 
the fourth division their meet- 
ing would almost certainly 
produce the best Cup gate of 
the day. 



Angry Aldridge: team bos stranding the last straw 



France looking to Passi 


By Simon O'Hagan 


Gerald Passi. an attacking 
midfield player from Toulouse, 
is the man France are hoping 
can lift the national side out of 
the slump which set in after 
their World Cup campaign 
came to such a bitter end in the 
semi-final against West Ger- 
many. 

A transitional phase was al- 
ways going to be necessary for a 
team which had dearly reached 
its peak. But muddling through 
does not come easily to the 
French and in six months they 
have dropped a long way down 
the ranks of European nations. 

The European Championship 
that the French won in 1984 is 
already as good as lost after only 
two matches in their qualifying 
group — a draw in Iceland and a 
defeat at home to the Soviet 
Union — so they go into 
tomorrow's tie in East Germany 
with more concern for the long 
term than the shorL 

It is against this background 
that Passi. one of the most 
exciting young players in the 
country, is set to make his 
international debut and revital- 
ize a midfield which lacks the 
injured Fernandez and contains 
a Platini whose heart is no 
longer in it. France will be 
hoping Passi can reproduce the 
form he showed in scoring three 
goals for Toulouse in their 
UEFA Cup tie last month 
against Spartak Moscow.

Championship matches to be

an unexpected return. 


The success Belgium eqjoyed

Leo Sccnhakker, the Real 
Madrid manager, blamed his 
side's defeat, their first at home 
for two years, on the intensive 
schedule' his players were being 
required to meeL “Six. eight. 10 
of my players play in the 
national side.” he said. “They 
don't have time to recover. 
Players arc neither machines 
nor horses.” 


John Aldridge, Oxford 
United'sfl milUon-rated player,

forward, aged 28. who cost 
£70,000 from Newport County 
and helped Oxford win the third

championships in consecutive

transfer request to the manager, 
Maurice Evans. 

“I have bora unhappy for

Saturday when seven players, 
including me. were left behind 
(by the team bus) after the 
maren against QPR was the 
final straw," he said. There was 
uo possibility of him changing 
his mind. 

He added: “I want to play for 
a big dub like Liverpool or 
Arsenal which have a chance of 
winning something and I would 
like to have talks with them." 


Anderiecht, having already 
accounted for Garnik and the 
holders. Steau Bucharest, look 
the biggest threat to the two 
most fancied teams left ht the 
competition. Real Madrid and 
Dynamo Kiev. Linder the for- 
mer Dutch international. Aarie 


Haan, they are playing some 
delightful football characterized 
by the silken midfield skills of 


Sdfo. the Italian-born Belgian 
international and Lozano, a 
Spaniard. Up front a bustling

testimony to that country's re- 
cent rise. 


• ZURICH: UEFA have im- 
posed a seven-match ban on 
Toulouse’s Eric Be 11 us following 
incidents during their UEFA 
Cup tie against Spartak Moscow 
on November 5 (Reuter re- 
ports). Bell us was sent off in the 
second round second leg game 
in Moscow after dashing with 
two Spartak players. 

UEFA have also rejected an 
appeal by the Cypriot cham- 
pions Apoel Nicosia and con- 
firmed the club's two-year ban 
from European Cup games for 
its refusal to play a Turkish 
opponent. 


The Football Association is 
not “under threat" from the 
latest Football League bid to get 
a bigger say in the running of the 
professional game.Thai is the 
view of Ted Croker, the FA 
secretary, as Lancaster Gate 
officials prepare to meet today 
to consider a League request to 


for FA say 


set-up a new joint committee. 


Anderiecht won 4-1 at Ant- 
werp over the weekend to keep 
pace with Bruges. S- 1 winners at 
home to Mofeubeek, at the top 
of the table. Bayern Munich 
beat FC Hombmrg 3-0 to draw 
level with Bayer Leverkusen at 
the top of the German League, 
while in an extraordinary match 
in Spain Real Madrid led Ath- 
letic Bilbao 2-0 before losing 4-2 
at home to surrender the League

have received a request

Croker said. 

“They already enjoy an al- 
most comprehensive autonomy, 
though in one or two areas we 
inevitably do overlap. 1 feel it is 
mainly a question of new

Shilton to

in spite of 


injury 


The En;

Shilton will defy a thigh iojurg 


to answer a crisis at The 
tanighL 

Shilton will line up against 
Aston Villa in the Littiewoods 
Cup fourth round tie with the 


thigfi strapped. Tim Rowers, 
hfltc 


Shilton's deputy against Arse- 
nal, underwent an operation 
yesterday on the cheekbone he 
fractured in a collision with 
Perry Groves, of Arsenal on 
Saturday. 

While Flowers was on the 
operating tabic. Shilton was 
visiting a specialist in a des- 
perate attempt to regain fitness. 
Southampton's assistant man- 
ager Tony Barton said: “Shifts 
will be there but he's not fit"

asks to go 


Uniteds manager said: “John 
can only go if we get a good offer, 
but so far we have not received a 
single bid and until we do he 
stays here." Evans said be had 
yet to receive Aldridge's transfer 
request, though he had spoken 
to the player. “I can appreciate 
him wanting to finish his career 
with a big club, which most be 
the ambition of all players and 
I've told him he must continue to 
play well" 

He revealed be had apolo- 
gized to Aldridge and the other 
players left behind at QPR. “1 
gave the matter some thought 
over the weekend and told them 
I might have been wrong and 
acting in haste, which I don't 
normally do. They apologized to 
me for being late, so there was 
wrong on both sides to an 
incident which was blown op out 
of all proportion." 


Keith Granger, let in 12 goals in 
his only two first team appear- 
ances at the end of last season 
anri his manager Chris Nicfaoll 
was reluctant to throw him in 
again for such a crucial match. 

“The only alternative was to 
borrow somebody,” Barton 
said. “But even on (me leg 
Shilton is better than most.” 

• Southampton's injury prob- 
lems are more than matched by 
Charlton Athletic in recent 
weeks (Clive White writes). 
Their casualty list has shortened 
considerably but probably not 
enough in time to withstand the 
onslaught of Arsenal the league 
leaders, at Highbury. The f 
that George Graham, the Arse- 
nal manager, was unimpressed 
by his team's runaway victory at 
The Dell, will be of little 
comfort to Charlton, beaten in 
their last three games. Graham 
said the sam? after handing out 
a convincing beating to 
Charlton at Se I hurst Park two 
weeks ago. 

Charlton, who have never 
reached the fifth round of this 
competition, will have Gritt or 
Shipley in midfield in place of 
Peake, for this cup tie. Despite 
the return of Humphrey and 
Curbishley at the weekend they 
are still without Johns, Agboola 
and Walsh, all injured. 

West Ham United, another 
London side carrying strong 
hopes in this competition after 
twice finishing runners-up (like 
.Arsenal), have a doubt about 
Orr against Oxford United at 
Upton Park. The Scot has been 
afflicted by further back trouble 
in training and as a precaution. 
Keen has been brought into the 
squad. However. John Lyle, the 
manager, may decide to restore 
Watford in defence and move 
Parris into midfield if Orr fails 
his fitness test. 

For tbe remaining tie between 
the two outsiders, Shrewsbury 
Town and Cardiff City, the 
second division club have pro- 
moted Green, a teenager. Car- 
diff are unlikely to be 
unchanged. 


tcc additions. Ken Bates, Ron 
Noadcs and David Dcin, are 
understood to be unhappy about 
the FA's control of disciplinary 
matters and other aspects of the 
professional game. 

Just which areas they wish to 
lake over is hard to fathom. The 
already operates a very 
different disciplinary system for 
men who earn their living by 
playing, and all international 
connections with UEFA and 
FIFA have to be handled by the 
national body. The inter- 
national bodies do not deal with 
individual leagues. 

If what they warn is the right 
(o handle matters such as crowd 
trouble themselves, and also 
take an even bigger share of the 
cash from FA Cup ties and 
international matches, then the 
public's — and Government's — 
reaction, may well be lhaL all 
they are interested in is pursuing 
the game's financial rewards at 
the expense of everything else. 


Indoor game 
draughts 
some support 


Guinness, the brewers, are to 
sponsor an indoor football tour- 
nament involving II leading 
first division clubs, to be staged 
at tbe G-Mex centre in Man- 
chester on December 9 and 12, 
to the value of £70.000. 

On the first evening there mil 
be a preliminary section includ- 
ing Arsenal, Aston Villa. Lmon. 
Newcastle and Nottingham For- 
est They will play in two groups 
of three, with the leaders playing 
off and the winners joining five 
seeded clubs. Manchester 
United. Chelsea, Oxford, Shef- 
field Wednesday and Totten- 
ham, last season's winners, the 
following evening. The two 
leading clubs will then meet in 
the final. 

Ken Bates, a member of the 
Football League's commercial 
and marketing committee, said 
yesterday: "The League are, 
obviously, very pleased to have 
secured the backing of 
Guinness. Their sponsorship 
will enable this competition to 
be the biggest and most pres- 
tigious indoor tournament ever 
staged in this country.” 


The Mortgage 
National League, an exciting 
innovation for British tennis, 
will be launched in February- 
Figtu all-male teams wearing 
corporate stripes — much as 
football teams do — will play 
indoor home and away ties at 
weekends in two geographically 
arranged groups of four. The 
winners ofeach group will dash 
in April for the national 
championship and a first prize 
of £20,000. , 

The total prize money for Hus 
inaugural competition will be 
£724*00. The sponsors, a subsid- 
iary of an international invest- 
ment house, have agreed to bade 
tbe league with £500,000 over 
three years. It is intended that a 
second division will be added 
later next year. When the proto- 
type has run its course, a 
decision win be made about 
whether women should be in- 
cluded (mixed teams) or should 
have a separate league. 

AH this and more was an- 
nounced yesterday during a 
press conference at Queen's 
Club. West Kensington. Ian 
Peacock, the executive director 
of the Lawn Tennis Association, 
said the LTA would support the 
scheme and would also monitor 
the nature of its development. 
The LTA is justified on both 
counts, because tbe new league 
will be an unusual marriage 
between the tennis 
"establishment” and commer- 
cial initiative. 

Peacock, who tends to spread 
his feathers neatly, listed six 
good features of tbe concept 
There would, he said, be in- 
creased competition for British 
players, more good tennis for 
the public to watch, a broaden- 
ing of the game's mass appeaL 
more business for new indoor 
centres, a growth in sponsorship 
and an inducement for British 
players to stay in the game. 

One such player could be

There was no let-up to the 
complete dominance the West 
Indian fast bowlers have estab- 
lished against the Pakistan bats- 
men when the fourth one-day 
international was played here 
yesterday. Pakistan, needing 
203. were al (out for a paltry 113, 
which left West Indies winners 
by 89 runs. West Indies now 
have a 4-0 lead in the series, 
which is completed today in 
Hyderabad. 

The teams agreed beforehand, 
the game should be a 45 overs 
contest and it was further re- 
duced when Pakistan only man- 
aged to bowl 44 overs before 
lunch. Any realistic chance 
Pakistan held of winning dis- 
appeared when they slumped to 
30 for four after 18 overs. 
Marshall utterly beat the new- 
comer, Sajid Alt Waldi had 
Ramiz and Ejaz caught behind, 
and m between Sboeib gave 
short midwicket a simple catch 
against a slower ball from 
Benjamin. 

Miandad and Imran played 
some entertaining strokes as 
they added 64 in 14 overs for the 
fifth wicket but it was in a 
forlorn cause. When Gray re- 
turned, Imran hit a high catch to 
deep mid-wicket and half an 
hour later tbe match was fin- 
ished. Gray took four for 16 in 
four overs in his second spell 
and was made man of tbe 
match. Miandad was seventh 
out, a despairing stroke yielding 
a catch to long-on. The crowd, 
tbe best behaved on the tour so 
for, watched the debacle almost 
in silence. 

West Indies, who were put in 
to bat, finished with the largest 
total either side has managed in 
the series so for. Logie and 
Gomes, whose fourth-wicket 
stand of 92 in 17 overs was a 
record between these two coun- 
tries. provided the backbone. 
Harper dominated the final 
thrash with Dqjon, hitting 
Imran for sixes over long leg and 
long-on. 

Greenidge was rested by West 
Indies while Wasim Akram, 
whose injured foot has mended 
more quickly than expected, 
returned at tbe last moment for 
Mnnzoor Elahi in the Pakistan 


side. Richardson and Haynes 
provided a solid foundation 
before they were out in 
successive overs 

When Richards foiled again. 
West Indies were 61 for three 
from 21 overs. Richards tried to 
drive Tauseef bat was bowled 
when the ball turned more than 
he expected. In all matches on 
this tour, 10 innings have now 
brought him only 206 nms, one 
of the leanest periods in his 
career. In the one-day inter- 
nationals his scores have been 7, 
17,0 and 4. 

Overall, leg-spinners have 
dismissed him four times, and 
off-spinners and seamers three 
times each. He refuses to find 
any excuse and says, “These 
things happen, it won't last for 
ever." 

Logie made several crisp 
strokes during the fourth-wicket 
recovery but Gomes was fortu- 
nate more than once against the 
spinners, who bowled well. 
They were out to successive 
balls. Gomes foiled to beat 
Qadir's throw from mid-wicket 
as he completed a second run, 
then Logie played bade to Imran 
and was leg-before.

said yesterday the organizers of 
tbe competition bad studied 
similar events in the United 
States. West Germany, France 
and Switzerland and bad sorted 
out the better features. 

So for. Feaver said. 18 venues 
bad expressed interest. They 
ranged from the North-East to 
Bournemouth and Greater 
London. Most would have to 
wait until the second division 
was formed. As for tbe chosen 
eight venues, to be announced 
later this week, it woul d be n p to 
approved team managers to 
round up six likely lads — of 
whom four would take part in 
each tie. 

Every quartet must include at 
least three British players and 
can include one overseas player. 
Ail the heading British players 
are expected to be involved, 
notably John Lloyd, Jeremy 
Bates and Andrew Castle. Eng- 
land is also a temporary borne 
for many foreign players and it 
is possible that tbe likes of Peter 
McNamara, Peter Fleming, 
Kim Warwick, Sherwood Stew- 
art. Andy Kohlbezgand perhaps 
one or two Swedes may be 
tempted to play. 

Lloyd said yesterday: “All the 
team tennis I have seen has been 
fun and I have always wondered 
if such a scheme could work in 
Britain once we had the indoor 
centres. The new league should 
be good for the dobs and should 
stimulate interest among local 
communities-” 

The format for tbe ties will be 
unusuaL There will be four 
singles and one doubles, with 
every match consisting of one 
set with a tie-break, if necessary, 
at 6-afl. Tbe detailed allocation 
of team points seems, in my 
view, to be unnecessarily com- 
plicated. We may be sure, too. 
that such a revolutionary 
scheme will have teething trou- 
bles. But at this stage it would be 
churlish to cavil at a bold 
innovation from which British 
tennis has nothing to lose and, 
probably, much to gain.

\ An anatomy of the rectangular idol 


• Wisdom, m the shape of the 
one-line epigram, is soraething- 
The Mope Rectangle ( BBC2, 
9.00pm) is rather fond of And, 

just as Robert Robinson dispenses 

it tiberallvin his Saturday evening 
Radio 4free-for-afl Stop the Week 
so he takes to his presenter's role 
in Patricia Houlihan's anatomy of - 
a television personality like a dude 
takes to water. Celebrity, he 
opines, is what yon volunteer for. 
Fame is what happens when you 
are not thinking about it. And yon 
would be hard put to improve on 
Robinson's definition of the old- 
time radio announcers as men ' 
who mediated the. news like well- 
trained footmen. Robinson is 
himself a television personality, of 
course, and be is uncharacteris- 
tically modest in not attemp t^ 
an anatomy of his own popular 
appeal Other familiar television 
fhces that have been mustered by 
Patricia 'Houlihan in her mainly 


C . CHOICE *)

moment of tastiness involving 
Robin Day) are more forthcom- 
ing. Marenanita Laski, quint- ■ 
essentially intellectual as always, 
says she round panel game tame a 
corrupting exercise; She 'hated 
deference of the nylons-ondcr-thc- 
cotmter- variety. Malcolm Mugg 
cridge; his reputation as popular 
age still intact, shrewdly identi- 
fies the paradox that must, . in his 
performing heyday, have caused 
him some soul-searching: in the 
ideal lift, suppression of tiro ego is 
the first priority, .but inflation of 
ego is the first essential of life on 
television. As to the difference 
between being a TV personality 
and being a TV star, there is this 


Macdonald Hobley: Pick your 
nose often enough on television 


' and you can become a personality. 
Stardom is something else again. 
• One Per Cent of Us ( Tteme, 
U.30pm,but at different times 
and on other days elsewhere on 
ITV), is a most sensitive attempt 
to explore the world of the 
mentally handicapped and to 
identify the seemingly insur- 
mountable problems of those who 
have the responsibility, both in- 
side and outside the family, of 
caring for them. The film repre- 
sents an extraordinary degree of 
persistence on the pan of its 
writer-director, John Pea. Twenty 
years ago, he made his first film 
about some mentally handicapped 
children at a special school in 
Devon. Ten years later, he re- 
corded what had happened to 
them in adolescence. Now he 
.picks up die story of five of them, 
m then- late twenties and early 
thirties and, in a way that con- 
centrates cur minds wonderfully 


on. the new- and controversial 
system of taking the mentally 
handicapped but of institutions 
and returning than to the commu- 
nity, makes a quietly powerful 
plea for the feelings of the handi- 
capped to be taken into account 
before a well-intended but not 
sufficiently thought . out social 
experiment reaches the point of no 
return. 

• Despite the epic miscasting of 
Toyah Wilcox as the meddling 
commissar, I recommend Ned 
Chaillct’s lusty production of 
Vishnevsky’s tale of the Russian 
Revolution, Optimistic Tragedy 
(Radio 3, 7 JO). The music high- 
lights on Radio 3 indude the 
Philhamronia playing Rachman 
inov’s second symphony (9.50pm) 
and Kirshbaum playing the Schu- 
mann cello concerto with the BBC 
Philharmonic (12. 1 Opm)

Television fund 
is running 
out of money 



By Stnart Jones, Football Correspondent 


The fund set up to com- 
pensate dubs for a decline in 
attendance during League 
games covered live on tele- 
vision is in danger of running 
ouL At the present rate, the 
£600,000 that has been set 
aside will be expended before 
the last two Sunday shows of 
the season. 

The Football League is 
growing increasingly con- 
cerned about the rise in the 
amount of compensation re- 
quested, which is linked to the 
fall in gates. Indeed, during a 
meeting a fortnight ago be- 
tween the representatives 
from the television companies 
and the League. Philip Carter, 
the president, officially ex- 
pressed the fears. 

Lee Walker, the League's 
commercial manager, and a 
member of the television 
committee, expanded on 
those fears yesterday. 
“Compensation is dead 
money ,” he said. “It is the 
payment of cash for empty 
seats. It is, therefore, a waste 
of money that is no good for 
the dubs, the Lea gu e, or 
television. 

“The trend is disturbing to 
say the least. Of the four 
claims we have received so 


can see that, if we pay out each 
club in full, we will end up 


stiles, compared to the 
corresponding figures last sea- 


£100,000 short at the end of son. In one game alone, the 


the season.” 

It seems certain that the 
League, when they begin n^o- 
tiations on a new contract at 
the end of next season, will 
demand that die television 
companies take measures to 
reduce “tire dead money.” 
Why. for instance, do the BBC 
and ITV not black out their 
live programmes in the local 
region in which it is to be 
shown? 

The League could equally 
insistjustinably, that a game 
cannot be covered unless it is a 
sell-out. In the United States, 
where the sensible agreement 
is already in existence, the 
television companies solve the 
problem by buying the tickets 
themselves and offering them 
to either sponsors or adver- 
tisers. 


first of the season between 
Everton and Manchester 
United in September, the 
attendance at Goodison Park 
was down by almost 17,000. 

Oaims differ widely. Seat 
prices vary by as much as £5 
and there are other “areas of 
shortfall” to be taken into 
consideration. Some dubs, for 
example, hire their own cater- 
ers, whose subsequent losses 
would be included in the 
overall total submitted. 

The compensation commit- 
tee, which will meet for the 
first time in two weeks, has 
five members. Walker’s com- 
panions are Ken Friar, of 
Arsenal, Alan Bennett, of 
Leicester Gty, Ron Nodes, of 
Crystal Palace, who represents

As the leaders in the Route 
du Rhum single-handed trans- 
Atlantic race were feeing up to 
yet another gale last night, the 
fete of Loic Caradec, skipper 
of the 85ft French catamaran 
Royale, found capsized 240 
miles off Cap Finisterre on 
Saturday was still unknown. 

The French destroyer, 
Maille Breze, reached the 
upturned multihull at 7am 
yesterday, 48 hours after it had 
first been spotted but divers 
found no trace of the sailor, 
aged 38. The hatches into the 
two hulls, where he would 
have been expected to shelter, 
remained sealed and the only 

fact* 'that the *yachfs liferaft 
was missing. 

Last night the Nigel Irens- 
designed Fleury Michon, skip- 
pered by Philippe Ponpon, 
held a 170-mile lead over 
Garadec’s former sailing part- 
ner Olivier Mousy, but the 
Canadian, Mike Birch, sailing 
another Irens design, TAG 
Heuer, is south of the current 
low pressure system sweeping 
across the Azores and is 
expected to close the gap.

Alen takes 
up the 
challenge 
for Finns 

By David Duffield 

The secosd day of the 
Lombard RAC rally contained 
13 special stages, which 
proved an unlucky number for 
many drivers including 
Sunday’s overnight leader 
Jaha Kaakkunen. He was 
overtaken by Markkn Alen 
and was being hard-pressed 
for second place by his 
Peugeot 205 team coiieagae 
and fellow Finn, Timo 
Salonen, who was only one 
second adrift after 17 stages. 

Salonen, last year's world 
drivers champion, was the first 
car to set off for the two-mile 
stage at Harewuod HOI follow- 
ing the overnight stop at 
Harrogate. Tony Fond, of 
Great Britain, made an early 
[ aiWtaire and went off on the 
i first special stage at 
Harewood HHL This was only 
the first problem of the day for 
Pond and the MG Metro 6R4 

Harewood Hill and the 
three miles in the forest at 
Slang were short sprints com- 
pared with the d"— 17 
miles in the Hamsteriey For- 
est As the sound of the tato- 
charged eagines of the 
Feageots and Lancia Group B 
cars echoed across the natural 
ampMbeatre of the final part 
of the Slang, the battle be- 
tween Kakknnen and Alen was 
in fan flight 

Kakkanen’s Peugeot 205 
T16 was suffering an occa- 
sional misfire bid Alen’s 
Lancia Delta S4 was on 90ng. 
Aka had started the day only 
four seconds down on 
Kakknnen and chipped away 
at the deficit to take the bad 
after the Fabton stage. Both 
had survived the Hamsteriey 
Forest roads. 

Not so fortsnafe was Stig 
Blomqvist, who pn etured a 
tyre in his Ford RS200 and 
dropped from fourth overall to 
sixth. Salonen went off as did 
Pentti Airikkala, who was 
lying third in Group A. 
Airikkala, who started the day 
in 22nd place, sli d off in his 
Vanxball Astra GTE after 
being Minded by the low son 
and missing a bend.

Drago equals 
record with 
break of 141 

By Sydney Frisian 

Tony Drago, the Maltese 
21-year-old who now lives in 
London, made a brilliant 
clearance break of 141 in the 
first frame ofhis second round 
match against John Viigo in 
the Tennents UK Champion- 
ship at the Guild Hafl, Preston 
Drago finished the morning 
leading 5-3, after his break of 
141 equalled the champion- 
ship record set by Willie 
Thome on Saturday. 

Terry Griffiths and Tony 
Knowles qualified for the 
second round after building 
on overnight leads. Knowles, 
ranked No. 4 in the world, 
defeated John Rea. from 
Clydebank, 9-4. and Griffiths 
beat the newcomer from Not- 
tingham. Paul Gibson, 9-3. 

Both Knowles and Griffiths 
expressed a difference of opin- 
ion on the pockets, which are 
believed to be slightly larger 
than usual. Knowles said: 
“When the pockets are too 
generous all you pet is scrappy 
play which does little justice to 
the better snooker player. 
There is no subtlety left and 
that is killing the game:” 
Griffiths had earlier expressed 
firm opinion in favour of 
larger pockets.

However, the man of the 
morning was Ingvar Carissen 
in his four-wheel drive Mazda 
323. Taking advantage of the 
errors for die drivers of the 
more powerful Group B cars, 
he moved steadily through the 
field. But Stig Anderrang’s 
departure from the rally as 
night fell on the way to 
Scotland was doe to a broken 
chassis on his Ford RS200. 

The drivers were having to 
contend with more than the 
pressures of high speed com- 
petition along the slippery and 
rutted forest tracks. To meet 
the requirements for shorter 
rallies and . in an attempt to 
stop the criss-aossing of link-

Australia surprised to find 
they have a tiger by the tail 

From John Woodcock, Cricket Correspondent, Brisbane 



It had been a long time since 
England could feel as pleased 
on a rest day as they did here 
yesterday. After being heartily 
rubbished (a good Aussie 
verb) in the Press before the 
first Test match started, they 
must have been fancying their 
chances of winning iL With all 
their second innings wickets 
standing , Australia needed 
206 r uns to avoid an innings 
defeat 

In the excitement of ft all, it 
is suddenly bring said that you o 
must never “underrate the 
tans. Put them into a Test 
match and they’ll fight like 
tigers.” 

In another sizzling inter- 
view on breakfast television 
yesterday, Frances Edmonds, 
the bowler’s wife, said that 
when the boys put on the old 
England sweater, something 
stirred. I£ in 1986, the effect 
has not always been notice- 
ably beneficial, peritaps it is as 
well that Australians should 
; be made to think ft has. 

As Gatting said on Sunday 
evening, the pitch has sur- 
prised everyone. It behaved a 
lot better on the first day than 
expected but, with the help of 
Australian-made balls, 
England's bowlers found ft 
suited them when they were 
dismissing Australia for 248 
on Sunday. 

There was some movement 
for the fester bowlers and, for 
Emburey, a degree or two of 
bounce and turn. It was this 
bounce, allied to his accuracy, 
that enabled Emburey to sow 
the seeds of anxiety among the 
same Australian batsmen 
who, without great difficulty, 
coped only recently with 
India's spinners on the slower 
and lower pitches of the sub- 
continent If the 'Gabba pitch 
also gets dower and lower, 
Australia may survive; but I 
doubt whether they will 
otherwise. 

It was only the fourth time 
in Australia since the war that 
England had been in a pos- 
ition to make Australia follow 
on. Hutton did so at Sydney in 
1954-55 though, by then, rain 
had more or less ruled out the 
chances of an English victory. 
In 1965-66, also at Sydney, 
Mike Smith's side, after mak- 
ing 488, bowled Australia out 
for 221 and 174. If ft is any 
consolation to Border, Austra- 
lia won the next Test, also by 
an innings. On the third 
oocasion, at Adelaide in 1970- 
71, Illingworth opted to bat 
again, despite a first innings 
lead of 235, and Australia 
slipped out of the net 

When Illingworth made his 
derision, the rest day (which

The Hibernian manager, 
John Blackley, resigned yes-

month after assuming the 
post Blackley took over from 
Pat Stanton in October of 
1984 after a spell as assistant 
manager, and at the end of a 
playing career which had seen 
him turn out for Hibs, New-

He guided the team into the

feh that the fast bowlers would 
be more likely to bowl Austra- 
lia out a second time after a 
break. For psychological rea- 
sons, Australia’s batsmen 
were surprised and delighted 
not to be pul in again. On 
Sunday, with the rest day to 
look forward to, Gatting can 
have had no doubt as to the 
right course, not least because

The ouce-uoMe art of nod-

a npperott with the 

revelation that at least 15 
co mpeti tors resorted to drug 
aids at the world champion- 
ships in Italy last August. 
They include medal wmners. 

AO the c u l prits have been

30 months. It is a matter to 
which tiie CCPR should ad- 
dress ftself at its drags fonun 
in Bourn emou th on Thursday. 
The UIPMB are not yet 

officially talking but from 

reliable sources I learn that 
the culprits came from: United 
States (2\ Bulgaria (2\ Soviet 
Union (6 ) and Poland (5). But 
as Wille Grot, former general 
secretary of the UIPMB ami 
1948 Olympic champion, put 
it “This is only the tip of the 
iceberg.” 

limited number 
drag-checked 

He was referring to the fed 
that only a limited number of 
the 159 competitors taking 
part in the three contests — for 
senior and junior men and 
women — at Montecatini 
Terme were drug-checked. 
Urine samples were taken 
after four of the sports: fenc- 
ing, swimmi ng and 
(the top four in each event and 
two others at random) and 
shooting (12, indntBng die top 
shooters ia each detail and 
others at random). 

It caB be assumed that the 
15 positive drug returns came 
from the shooting, the one 
emit in modem pentathlon 
blighted by the drugs menace: 
mother words, 15 oot of the 36 
tested were on dope. But as 
Grot and others most ask: 
what.abont the rest; what 
wonM have been the result 3 
they had been checked, too? 

This new scandaL, coating so 
stum altar toe 1984 Los An- 
geles Ol ym p i cs drugs fiasco, 
puts the UIPMB m a des- 
perate position. At Los An- 
geles competitors discovered 
that drags banned by the 
UIPMB were not yet on the 
International Olympic 
Committee’s list. They had a 
field day, prododng doctors’ 
letters pro ring the y neede d the 
drags for their asthmatic aad 
heart conditions. 

To make matters worse, the 
testing laboratory was not 
IOC approved and the reserve 
“B” samples were destroyed 
too soon. In Italy safeguards 
were taken, the samples bring 
canted by a UIPMB official to 
toe IOC-approved laboratory 
at Cologne, where testing was 
c o ndu cte d under toe super- 
vision of Dr Manfred Dottike, 
an authority on the use of 
drags In sport (indndxng horse 
raring). 

The “A” samples wee 
tested Erst and the sealed “B” 
samples opened and checked 
later in the presence of toe 
alleged offender or his or her 
representative. I understand 
aO toe “B” samples since 
opened have proved positive 
(fe, a drag was present). 

Dfeter Krikow, the UIPMB 
official who ferried the sam- 
ples to Cologne, argues that 
toe Montecatini findings 
prove toe UIPMB’s drags 
fight is bringing results. 

Grot’s view is different: 
“Remove toe temptation to 
take dregs — to cemmft a 
crime — that is what I say.” 
His solution is to hold toe 
shooting and ranting together, 
as happens in the winter 
biathlon. A drug takes to 
steady a shooting arm would 
have disastrous effects on 
miring performance.
