Mr Neil Kinnock, the La- 
bour leader, yesterday said 
nuclear weapons could be out 
or Britain within 12 months of 
a socialist government being 
elected. 

He said a Labour govern- 
ment would consult American 
and European allies, but it was 
“highly unlikely" that freeing 
Britain of nuclear weapons 
would take the whole of one 
parliament. 

Mr Kinnock was speaking 
on Thames Television’s This 
Week programme just hours 
after his triumph on defence 
policy at the Labour con- 
ference. Much to his relief 
delegates voted against pulling 
Britain out of Nato or closing 
down all nuclear bases, includ- 
ing the non-nuclear ones. 

Mr Kinnock also cleared up 
speculation following Shadow 
Foreign Secretary Mr Denis 
Healey's remarks at the begin- 
ning of the week that it was 
“not inconceivable’’ that 
Britain’s European allies 
could persuade a Labour Gov- 
ernment to retain midear 
weapons on British soiL 

He repeated his pledge that 
a Labour government would 


allow die United States to 
maintain only conventional 
defence facilities in Britain. 

At the conference delegates 
voted to negotiate tough new 
terms with the United States 
for any of their bases allowed 
to stay in Britain. 

Attempts to commit Labour 
to withdraw from NATO, 
which would have made a 
nonsense of Mr Kin nock’s 
defence policy, failed by a 
margin of 5-1. But engineering 
workers leader Mr Bill Jordan 
was given a tough reception 
for a speech backing NATO. 
Other senior trade union fig- 
ures reaffirmed their intendon 
to fight until they had got 
Labour committed to dose 
down all American bases an A 
withdraw from the alliance 

Mr Alan Sapper of the 
ACTT said: “NATO is an 
attack organization. It is a 
contradiction in our policy 
which will have to be 
removed." 

NUM leader Mr Arthur 
Scargill said it was 
“inconceivable" for Labour to 
remain m NATO after having 
reaffirmed a policy of uni- 
lateral nuclear disarmament. 


He would continue to cam- 
paign for the closedown of all 
American bases. 

Brtier attacks on the United 
Stales permeated yesterday's 
debate. Delegates criticised 
the American raid on Libya 
from British bases and warned 
that the same thing would 
happen under a Labour Gov- 
ernment unless right new con- 
trols were imposed. 

The conference passed a 
motion calling on a Labour 
Government to negotiate 
treaty terms to govern the 
maintenance of US military 
bases in Britain and to 
“ensure that no action can be 
planned, equipped for. or 
undertaken which is not to the 
direct wishes of the United 
Kingdom Government" 

After the debate Mr Davies 
began to dear up the un- 
certainty which still remains 
about bow Labour win nego- 
tiate the closedown of Ameri- 
can military bases and how 
long the process will take. He 
said it would be better done 
quickly and forecast that the 
process would be completed 
within 12 months.

Instant pensions 
rise promised 

By Richard Evans, Political Correspondent 


' • 1 TheLaboutRarty ran Into a J 
new political storm over its 
public spending plans last 
night after the annual con- 
ference in Blackpool commit- 
ted the next Labour 
government to massive in- 
creases for Britain’s nine-and- 
a-balf million pensioners. 

Delegates agreed 
overwhelmingly with a mo- 
tion calling -on the next gov- 
ernment to increase pensions 
immediately to not less than 
half of average earnings for a 
married couple mid not less 
than, a third for a single 
person.- . 

The present weekly pension 
.rates are £38.70 for a single 
person and £61.95 for a cou- 
ple. while average earnings are 
now more than £185 a week. 

Mr John Major, ihe new 
Minister for Social Security, 
seized upon the pledge and 
said it would cost an extra 
£16 billion a year — almost as 
much as the existing annual 
pension bill of £18.9 billion. 

Until, now. Labour has 
promised to raise pensions by 
£5 a week for a single person 
and £8 a week for couples, 
making up for Government 
“cuts" caused by breaking the 


link between pensions ; and 
earnings. Labour leaders have 
said those increases would be 
financed by reclaiming the 
£3.6 billion given in tax cuts 
to the top 5 per cent of salary 
earners. 

But Mr • Meacher was | 
cheered yesterday as he gave 
his backing to the new deal for j 
pensioners. He also promised , 
Labour would restore the 
State Earnings Related Pen- 
sion Scheme “which in this ; 
next decade will double, I 
mean double, ihe real value of 
the pension". 

The pensions package, 
passed by 6,41 2,000 votes to 
3,000. also commits the next 
Labour government to: 

• Exempt pensioners . from 
standing' charges for gas, 
electricity, telephone and tele- 
vision licences; 

• Introduce a statutory free 
fare scheme on public trans- 
port foir all pensioners; 

• Doubling the lax free 
Christmas bonus to £20 and 
substantially increasing the 
death grant: 

• Producing a long-term strat- 
egy to reduce die ‘ male 
retirmemem age to 60. 


Three hurt as 
IRA mortars 
miss station 

An IRA mortar attack on 
the RUC station at the border 
village of Crossmaglen in 
Northern Ireland injured 
three people, including a 
child, last night 
The police station was dam- 
aged during the attack but. the 
casualties occurred when 
some of the mortars fell short. 

Simultaneously, an army 
observation post in the village 
square came under attack 
from automatic .gunfire but 
there were no casualties. 

The IRA later admitted 
responsibility. None of the 
civilians injured was reported 
to be seriously hurt. 


Betrayal led 
to capture, 
court told 

A farmer’s son who thought 
he bad committed the perfect 
murder when he shot dead 
five members ofhis family at a 
remote farmhouse was be- 
trayed by his girlfriend, a court 
heard yesterday.

killed his adoptive parents, his 
half-sister and her twin sons at 
the family home ar ToUeshunt

Security men lead away the gunman who tried to shoot Mr Rajiv Gandhi in Delhi yesterday. 

Concealed 
gunman 
shoots at 
Gandhi 

From Michael Hamlyn 
Delhi 

Mr Rajiv Gandhi the In- 
dian Prime Minister, yes- 
terday escaped unhurt from a 
carefully planned, but poorly 
executed assassination at- 
tempt. The attempt blew a 
massive hole m the image of 
the securiw forces as provid- 
ing near-foo! proof, 24-hour 
protection for him. 

The incident occurred when 
a young man witnesses said 
was aged around 20 and had a 
“rustic look”, began popping 
offshotsat the Prune Minister 
as be attended a prayer meet- 
ing at the memorial to 
Mahatama Gandhi. . 

The gunman had concealed 
himself overnight in the dense 
foliage covering a pergola 
alongside the path near the 
VIP gate to Rajgbat — the state 
memorial ground. As the VIPs 
assembled, he loosed off a shot 
from a home-made pistol, 
which fired 1 2-bore cartridges. 

People heard the bang, but 
saw no one, and none was 
hurt, so it was assumed to be a 
scooter backfiring or a cracker. 

The Home Minister. Mr 
Biila Singh, immediately or- 
dered a security man to find 
out what had happened. The 
security man replied after 
some time that there was 
nothing lo worry about.

fora general election within 12 
months and regaining the 
initiative from the Labour 
Party. 

Party planners are treating 
the conference as a pre-elec- 
tion gathering and are to 
unveil a number of issues - a 
continuing extension . of the 
privatization programme 
including the water industry, a 
cash boost in the national 
health service to reduce wail- 
ing lists, the first significant 
reverse in comprehensive 
education for 20 years, a 
British-led move to cut Euro- 
pean Community agricultural 
spending, new legislation to 
help council tenants, a fresh 
and strengthened commit- 
ment to rates reform and 
further measures to combat 
serious crime. 

A £350,000 advertising 
campaign is to be launched 
this weekend and will cany on 
through the conference and 
the following week. 

Ministers were ordered sev- 
eral weeks ago to plan for- 
ward-looking speeches 
containing headline- winning 
announcements. The follow-

the Bournemouth conference 
debates which start next 
Tuesday.

Patten, the Minister for Hous- 
ing, will outline plans for a 
“Right to Rent" campaign

right-to-buy programme for 
council tenants. Bigger dis- 
counts for purchase may be 
unveiled.. He will spell out 
details of Rem Act changes to 
boost shared ownership

Botha threats go

From Christopher Thomas 
Washington 

Furious Senate leaders yes- 
terday denounced as 
“despicable” a telephone call 
to farm-belt senators by Mr 
R-F.“Pik" Botha, the South 
African Foreign Minister, m 
which, he threatened to retali- 
ate if the Senate imposed new 
economic . sanctions on the 
Pretoria Government. 

The call was taken in the 
Republican cloakroom — a 
dub-like lounge — on Capitol 
Hill by Senator Jesse Helms, a 
right-winger from North Caro- 
lina, who is. perhaps South 
Africa’s ' staunchest ally in 
Congress. 

Mr Botha apparently said 
South Africa would ban im- 
ports of all American gram if 
sanctions were imposed and 
would, not handle US grain 
destined for neighbouring Af- 
rican countries. But if sanc- 
tions were not imposed. South 
Africa would more. than dou-

From Stephen Taylor 
Sydney 

New evidence that a 
number of Nazi war criminals 
— including Gestapo members 
who were involved in mass- 
acres - settled in Australia, 
will be investigated by a 
commission of inquiry which 
was set up after a national 
television show alleged early 
this year that ex-Nazis found 
refuge in Australia after the 
Second World War. 

A list given to Mr Bill. 
Havdcn. the Australia Foreign 
Minister, contains the .names 
of 40 suspected war criminals 
who came here in the 1940s,. 
with their present addresses. 
Mainly from Latvia and

Rabbi Marvin Hier of the 
Wiesenthal Centre said: 

“These police chiefs, heads 
of. concentration camps, peo- 
ple who had authority." 


He would not say how many, 
but described ■ the new 
information as “significant". 
He expects to submit his 
report by next month.

Teachers’ 
16 % rise 
backed 

By Mark Dowd 
Education Reporter 

A Government-appointed 
independent inquiry yes- 
terday recommended a 16.4 
per cent pay increase for 
Scottish teachers, casting a 
shadow over the delicately 
poised talks on pay and con- 
ditions of teachers in England 
and Wales. 

The Scottish inquiry 
chaired by the former chair- 
man of Boots, Sir Peter Main, 
proposes that the increase be 
spread over 18 months to 
April 1988, but also proposes 
that up to 8.000 teachers to 
gain additional rises of be- 
tween 12 and 15 per cent when 
attaining the new grade of 
“senior teacher”. 

The 58 recommendations 
Include giving head teachers 
the power of veto over 
appointments and a new in- 
dependent review body to 
report on pay and conditions 
at two-yearly intervals. 

The Educational Institute of 
Scotland, which represents 
more than 80 per cent of 
teachers, gave a cautious re- 
sponse yesterday. 

Its general Secretary. Mr 
John Pollock, said that he was 
disiurbedby some of the 
recommendations made on 
conditions of service. A ballot 
will be held. 

The Secretary of State for 
Scotland. Mr Malcolm 
Rifkind. is expected to in- 
dicate how far the Govern- 
ment will go towards footing 
the extra pay bill of £90 mil- 
lion this year and £144 mil- 
lion next vear. within the next 
three weeks. 

The present arrangement in 
England and Wales offers 7 
per cent from January next 
year over an initial 12 month 
period,

Minister 
putin 
charge 
of NHS 

By Jill Sherman 

Mr Tony Newton, the 
newly-appointed health min- 
ister. has been put in charge of 
the National Health Service 
Management Board as part of 
a radical shake-up designed to 
give greater political control 
over the NHSL 
Mr Newton, now on honey- 
moon, will return as chairman 
of the NHS management 
board, replacing Mr Victor 
Paige, who resigned in June. 

He will be supported by Mr 
Len Peach, the present person- 
nel director who has been 
acting chairman for the last 
few months and will now 
become chief executive officer 
with the rank of second 
permanent secretary. 

But the most interesting 
appointment is that of the 
architect of tbe report which 
recommended the introduc- 
tion of general management 
into the NHS. Sir Roy Grif- 
fiths. 

Sir Roy. who is also manag- 
ing director of Sainsbuiy’s has 
been appointed deputy chief 
executive and * the 
Government’s adviser on 
NHS management with direct 
access to the Prime Minister. 

Mr Norman Fowler. Sec- 
retary of State for Social 
Services, said the changes 
would greatly strengthen the 
leadership of the NHS and 
enable the service to be im- 
proved further. “This is the 
strongest team we have put 
together on health", he said. 

. Mr Paige, who was chair- 
man of the Port of London 
Authority, was appointed 
NHS chairman in December 
1984, but resigned after only 
18 months in the job, 
complaining that he had not 
been given a free reign. 

Mr Fowler was at pains 
yesterday to stress that the 
management board should 
not and could not be consid- 
ered independent from politi- 
cal control Ministers had a 
duty to run the service 
responsibly. 

The Institute of Health 
Services Management yes- 
terday welcomed the . new 
changes. “The appointments 
present a very interesting 
innovation and should both 
assist in the continuing 
development of managment 
standards in the NHS and the 
production of coherent health 
care policy by the 
department”, said IHSM 
president Mr Douglas Hague. 

The Royal College of Nurs- 
ing also supported the moves, 
saying that it had always felt 
the political as pea of the 
Health Minister’s role should 
not be separated from the 
funriton of the board. 

Mr Len Peach, on a salary of 
£56,800, is on secondment 
from IBM where he was 
direaor of personnel and cor- 
porate affairs. 

Last night health service 
unions condemned the new 
appointments.

Threat to 
800 jobs 


Britain could provide in- 
struments for future Soviet 
spacecraft, Mr Roy Gib* 
son, bead of the British 
National Space Centre, 
said yesterday on his re- 
turn from talks in Moscow. 

He said Britain will also 
provide experts for future 
Soviet planetary probes. 
“We may be the poor 
relation when it comes to 
space hardware, bat the 
Russians value our scien- 
tific standing my highly.” 

A group of British sci- 
entists is to be nominated 
to work on the planned 
Soviet probe to die Mar- 
tian moon, Pbobos. 


Eight handled jobs are in 
jeopardy at Coventry Cli- 
max, the fork-lift truck 
makers, which yesterday 
called in the receiver. 

The company, which was 
part of the BL group anti) 
privatized in 1981, has 
been affected by intense 
foreign competition and a 
big fire last week. 

Mr Ray Lissaman, a foil 
time official of the Amal- 
gamated Engineering 
Union, said: “We have 
been told the receiver has 
been called in, but we do 
not know yet whether 
everyone will be made 
redundant or not.” 


Gay book ban attack 


Attempts by ministers In ban from libraries the 
homosexual book, Jenny Uvts witk Eric and Martin, were 
criticized yesterday by Mr George Cunningham, Library 
Association chief executive. 

Mr Cunningham said Mr Kenneth Baker, Secretary of 
State for Education, and Mr Richard Lace, Minister for the 
Arts, shouM not try, “to dictate what Other people are al- 
lowed to read”. 

He compared their attitude to left-wi^ councils, such as 
Lambeth, south-west London, which withdrew Biggies and 
Enid Biyton books for alleged racism and sexism.

£ 250 m project to upgrade Fylingda les 

RvPM»n»«.nort construction that, resembles a - but, will enable to station development ^rticulariy y g? to I 


By Peter Davenport 

Defence Correspondent 

Work is expected to begin 
next year on a £250 million 
j programme to upgrade the 
missile early warning station 
at Fylingdales in North 
Yorkshire. 

When completed and fully 
operational % 1991 it will 
have radically improved the 
tracking and detection cap- 
abilities of the station, and 
replaced the familiar three 
golf-ball radomes with a 


construction that resembles a 
sawn-off pyramid. 

The decision to go ahead 
was taken only after intensive 
discussions between officials 
in Whitehall and Washington 
to ensure that the work would 
not breach America's obliga- 
tions under the 1972 Anti- 
Ballistic Missile Treaty with 
the Soviet Union. 

The upgrading will not give 
any greater warning time of a 


missile attack- now up to 
eieht minutes depending from

Fraud trial

By Frances Gibb, Legal Affairs Correspondent 


The Government an- 
nounced yesterday it is to 
retain trial by jury for complex 
fraud cases and to shelve for 
the time being the key pro- 
posal of the Ro skill committee 
for a new frauds trial tribunal. 

But it is to proceed with 
most other main proposals of 
the committee as part of a £10 
million package of measures, 
including abolition of the 
defence right to challenge 
jurors and a radical overhaul 
of the rules of evidence and 
procedure.

The office, to initiate and

tackle about SO to 100 of the 
most serious fraud cases a 
year. At present such cases are 
handled by the Fraud In- 
vestigation Group, which will 
deal with the less serious 
cases. 

The decision to keep the 
right of trial by jury has been 
foreshadowed. But the Gov-

The frauds trial tribunal 
may be re-examined in the 
future in the light of the 
success of the other reforms. 

Among changes to the strict 
and sometimes archaic rules 
of evidence which have at 
times hindered fraud prosecu-

ments can “speak for 
themselves" without the need 
for a witness always to be 
present At the moment even 
such items as cheques, letters 
and memoranda have to be 
“spoken for” in court.

Third, juries will be helped 
by charts and schedules sum-

Court procedures are also to 
be overhauled in line with the

will be able to transfer serious 
or complex fraud cases direct 
to the crown court for trial 
without committal proceed- 
ings before magistrates.

Councils’ 
staff still 


By Urn Jones 


The right-dominated na- 
tional executive committee of 
the largest Civil Service union 
will order a rerun of the 
election for general secretary 
when it meets next week. 

The Electoral Reform Soci- 
ety, which has been investigat- 
ing breaches of ballot reg- 
ulations. has recommended a 
new poll. Civil and Public 
Services Association sources 
said. 

Its report details widespread 
irregularities in the election 
this year in which Mr John 
Macreadie. a supporter of 
Militant Tendency, defeated 
Mr John Ellis, the moderate 
deputy general secretary, by 
121 votes. 

Union members have al- 
leged the Militant controlled 
branches put undue pressure 
on members to vote for Mr 
Macreadie, held meetings 
when they knew Mr Ellis's 
supporters would be unable to 
attend and “hung around” 
ballot boxes in an intimidat- 
ing way. 

At some offices only Mr 
Macreadje's election literature 
was available, it was said. 
Some meetings were or- 
ganized in such a way that ail 
the votes were in favour of Mr 
Macreadie. In one Ministry of 
Defence branch, it is alleged 
that only eight out of 415 
members voted, most in fa- 
vour of the two defeated 
moderates. 


It is understood that the 
society found that in a 
substantial majority of alleged 
breaches of regulations took 
place but that many were only 
minor. Most serious breaches 
are put down to human error. 

In spite of claims by mod- 
erates, it is understood the 
report by the Electoral Reform 
Society makes no mention of 
ballot rigging. Officers of the 
society visited more than 200 
branches investigating in- 
dividual complaints and did 
not target offices where Mili- 
tant is powerful- 

Officials of the society, who 
spent almost two months on 
their inquiry, are angry that 
details of their report have 
been leaked.- They had re- 
leased only two copies, one to 
Mrs Marion Chambers, the 
union’s right wing president 
and the other to Mr David 
Bourne, the CPSA’s indepen- 
dent returning officer, who 
will decide first whether the 
ballot should be rerun. 

Yesterday, Mr Ellis said 
that, as the “cheated 
candidate” he welcomed the 
report and forecast that he 
would win a “properly con- 
ducted election.” 

But Mr Macreadie, who has 
claimed that the right wing of 
the union had put pressure on 
the society to recommend a | 
new election maintained that | 
as for as he was concerned be : 
was still the general secretary.

By Hugh Clayton 


The local government la- 
bour force has continued to 
grow in spite of the spring 
abolition of seven of the 
largest councils, including the 
Greater London CounciL. 

The latest official figures for 
council employees throughout 
England show an increase of 
more than 6,000 jobs in the 
workforce of almost two mil- 
lion in the 1 2 months to June. 


In March, Mr Kenneth 
Baker, who was then Secretary 
of State for the Environment, 
complained that the man- 
power figures showed “dis- 
turbing signs of rising”. 

The figures are a measure of 
the Government's success in 
curbing local authority spend- 
ing because two-thuds of cur- 
rent as opposed to capital 
spending by councils goes 
towards wages. 

By June, the total had risen 
to 1.9 million, the highest 
June figure for five years. 
There was a continuing rise in 
council social services staff 
partly in response to new 
legislative demands on local 
government But the number 
of police cadets continued to 
fall, to only 337,000 compared 
with more than a million three 
years ago.

championship was drawn 
terday after a further ■ (bar 
moves following a surprising 
counterattack by Gary Kara,

Anatoly Karpov's winning 
chances. 

On Wednesday the general 
belief was that Kasparov 
could hold a draw. Nevisth*

dicatc that Karpov would be 
able to probe for many hours 
in an attempt to win. 

Kasparov spent 12 minutes 
on his sealed move4l...Bfc5+, 
an excellent and active idea 
which inaugurated a surpris-

and unmoved by the evidence

tive father Nevill Bamber, a 
Jr aged 61; his adoptive 
mother June, also 61; his 
ck^T* Ashton model 

Sheila “BambT CaffeD, aged 
27, and her twin sons Nicholas 
totd DsmieL, aged six. 

All five were shot at the 
house on the 300-acre farm in 
toe early hours of August 7, 

Mr Anthony Arfidge, QC 
tor the prosecution, told the 
jury of seven men and five 
women that the family was 
“carefully and calcnlatetfly” 


Mrs Bamber had sev- 
en gtmshot wounds 
including one be- 
tween the eyes 

Mugford, aged 20, an educa- 
tion student at Goldsmith 
College, eventually went to the 
police on September 7. 

Mr Arlidgs said: “It is not 
an exaggeration to say she was 
besotted with him. Bnt on 
September 7 she told police 
that Jeremy Bamber bad con- 


steughtered with a sCTte of “tatarUJi msponsibility 
shots to the head after Mr . XT 


Bamber had wounded and 
beaten up his father, a wealthy 
magistrate and farmer. 

Twenty-five shots were 
fired from the point 22 semi- 
automatic Anschtuz rifle, IS 
from close range, and each 
found their mark. 

Only the twins, shot in their 
beds as they slept, were un- 
aware of the attack. 

After allegedly committing 
the cold-blooded tailings Mr 
Bamber left his mother’s blue 
covered Bible by the side of 


The couple met in Novem- 
ber 1983 and in the following 
April Miss Mugford began to 
spend much of her lime at his 
home, which was owned by 
his parents. 

Mrs Bamber. a strongly 
religious woman who served 
as a local church warden, 
disapproved and called her a 
“bailor. 

Bamber allegedly told his 
girlfriend how he hated his 
parents and wanted to get rid 
of them. 

But when Miss Mugford 


his sister’s body and with the suggested that he “cleared 
rifle across heir chest, and out”, Bamber replied that he 
returned to his home -in the had too much to lose. At 
hamlet ofGokihanger near by Easter 1985 he told Miss 
where be telephoned police. ' MogforcFs mother that he had 


beard his own mother was 
considering altering her will in 
favour of the twins. 

Mr Arlidge said; “From the 
beginning be was trying, 
according to Miss Mugford, to 
commit the perfect murder, a 
murder that would not be 
discovered.” 

After discarding a plan to 
sedate his parents, shoot them 
and set fixe to the house 
because the insurance cover 
was too low, he devised a 
second plan. 

That was to stage the 
killings himself and make it 
look as if his sister had 
committed the crime because 
she was mad. 

He tokl Miss Mugford that 
he had found a way to get in 
and out of the bouse without 
trace, leaving through a 
kitchen window which would 
appear to have then been shut 
from the inside due to the 
design of the catch. 

Mr Arlidge: “On the morn- 
ing before the murders he 
phoned his girlfriend in Lewi- 
sham, south London, and said 
he had been on the tractor and 
had been thinking of the 
murders and decided it would 
be tonight or never. She told 
him not to be so stupid.” 

At 3am, possibly before 
ringing the police to relay the 
bogus message from bis father, 
he rang her again and said: 
“Bye honey, I love you lots.” 

Miss Mugford was allowed 
to join Mr Bamber at his 
home in Head Street, 
Goklhanger, hours after the 
murders had been committed. 

There they embraced in 
private and, said Mr Arlidge, 
“Miss Mugford’s account is 
that he chuckled and said ‘I 
should have been an actor”*. 

Later that day when she 
asked him be pretended that 
he had hired a friend called 
Matthew McDonald for 
£2,000 to cany out the raur- • 
dersfor him. 

Mr Arlidge added: “As days 
passed her loyalty became 
more strained and at one 
point in a restaurant he said be 
had no feelings about the 
killings and agreed there must 
be something wrong with 
him.” • •

A nationwide programme 
for screening women for 
breast cancer must be backed 
up by professional expertise in 
diagnosing and treating it a 
specialist said in London 
yesterday. 

Professor Pal Forrest regius 
professor of clinical surgery at 
Edinburgh University, 
emphasized that many more 
surgeons, radiologists and 
pathologists would need to be 
trained in the management of 
the disease before a successful 
programme could be 
launched. 

Professor Forrest is chairing 
a government working party 
studying the implications of 
setting up such a programme. 

“To introduce a second-rate 
programme must be studi- 
ously avoided. Only 25 of the 
1,000 surgeons in Britain are 
dedicated to the management 
of breast cancer. Only a hand- 
ful of pathologists provide a 
cytology service and only 35 
radiologists belong to a 


mammography association,” 
he said. 

Professor Forrest said there ; 
were only eight centres : 
throughout the country with ^ 
skills in mammograpbic 
screening, and more than 100 
district health authorities and 
boards bad no 
mammographic facilities. 

He pointed to evidence 
from two studies in New York 
and Sweden that the early 
detection of breast cancer by 
mammography had resulted 
in a significant reduction in 
deaths. 

Breast cancer cases reported 
to diagnostic clinics in Britain 
were still huge: and advanced. 
By contrast 90 per cent of the 
tumours reported in Sweden 
were under 2cm in size. 
Professor Forrest said. 

In most parts of Britain 
patients were still being 
treated by mastectomy with- 
out counselling and were not 
aware of treatment options, he 
said. 


Midwives reject new 
scheme for training 


By a Staff Reporter 


The Royal College of Mid- 
wives has dashed head-on 
with the nursing profession by 
refusing to accept proposals to 
introduce a standard training 
programme foraD nurses and 
midwives. 

• The proposals are contained 
in a report called Project 2000, 
issued for consultation earlier 
this year by the the midwives’ 
United Kingdom Central 
Council. It suggests a three- 
year training period starring 
with a Common Foundation 
Programme (CFP) for two 
years, followed by specializa- 
tion in the third. 


Miss Ruth Ashton, general 
secretary of the RCM. said: 
“The college is unable to give 
its unreserved support for the 
proposals contained in Project 
2000. We do not believe that 
midwifery t rainin g based on 
the two-year CFP is the proper 
way to. prepare midwives for 
their role.” 

Miss Ashton said it was 
essential to retain the present 
18-month course for reg- 
istered nurses in general care, 
aiding that the college antici- 
pated that would continue to 
be the main entry route to 
midwifery in the future.

European 6 court’ ’ 
for air fares 
disputes proposed;: 

By Harvey Elliott, Air Correspondent ", 


Former model Sheila CaffeQ with her twin sons Nicholas, left, and DanieL 


>+***+* 





Jeremy Bamber, accused of killing bis adoptive parents, Nevill and June Bamber. 


After the couple continued 
to argue on different occasions 
Mr Bamber went to France 
and was arrested after return- 
ing from St Tropez on 
September 29 and was charged 
with the murders. 

Earlier Mr Arlidge said that 
Mr Bamber was due to inherit 
£436,000 from his parents if 
the entire estate went to him 
in the event of his sister’s 
death. 

On the evening before the 
murders Mr Bamber claimed 
to police that he had loaded 
the rifle, which was kept in the 
gun cupboard near bis father's 
office, in order to shoot rab- 
bits but had not fired a shot. 
The rifle was unloaded and 
left by Mr Bamber. 

When he telephoned police 
the next morning to tell them 
of the emergency at his 
father's house he was told to 
meet officers at White House 


Farm. They overtook him on 
the way and realized that he 
was not driving fast to the 
scene. 

Police broke into the locked 
house by forcing a scullery 
door and found a scene of 
disarray in the kitchen where 
the body of Mr Bamber senior 
lay. 

The phone was off the hook, 
the mantlepiece scarred, prob- 
ably by a rifle butt, a 
lampshade lay broken on the 
floor and the dead man's 
watch was found underneath 
the rug. 

Mr Arfidge said that it 
appeared Mr Bamber senior 
had been injured by the rifle 
butt. 

Eight gunshot wounds were 
found oh him including two to 
the right side of the head and 
two close together on the 
forehead after Mr Bamber had 


allegedly wounded, beaten 
and then finished him off. 

Upstairs Daniel lay in bed 
with five gunshot wounds in 
the head and Nicholas with 
three. 

In another bedroom Mrs 
Bamber had seven gunshot 
wounds including one be- 
tween the eyes and one to the 
right hand side of the head 
after apparently staggering 
around the room before being 
finished off. 

Sheila was lying dead on the 
far side of the room with two 
gunshot wounds to the neck, 
one of which injured her 
jugular. 

Forensic scientists discov- 
ered later that she had a 
tranquillizing drug in her liver 
and traces of cannabis which 
may have been taken some 
days before. 

The trial continues today. 


A proposal for a European 
tribunal to arbitrate in dis- 
putes between airlines over air 
fares will be put to the 12 EEC 
transport ministers meeting in 
London today. 

Under the scheme any air- 
line, or country, which feels 
aggrieved about the fares be- 
ing charged by its competitors 
would be able to appeal to the 
tribunal, whose decision 
would be binding. 

The need for the tribunal, 
which would be made up of 
one official from each country 
in dispute, plus a neutral 
party, comes filter an agree- 
ment which is almost certain 
to be reached on liberalizing 
European air fares. The agree- 
ment will allow for various 
zones, within which any air- 
line would be able to fix its 
own fare levels. 

The fares, called discount 
and deep discount, would be 
subject to three types of 
restrictions, drawn from three 
separate lists, controlling the 
type of passengers eligible for 
cheaper fares, such as students 
and pensioners, the length of 
stay and the time of day the 
flight is taken. Airlines could

Riot youth 
sentenced 
to 7 years 

The first person to be i 
convicted of involvement in 
last year's Tottenham riots 
was sentenced 10 seven years’ 
youth custody at the Central 
Criminal Court yesterday. 

Simon MacMinn. aged 19. a 
mechanic, of Liston Road. 
Tottenham, north London, 
who was married last week, 
was con sic ted of affray and

the Broadwater Farm estate. 
The jury rejected bis plea that 
confessions made to the police 
were fabricated. 

Judg: Denison. QC, said: 
“You took part in the worst 
outbreak of violent public 
disorder that this country has ,

from the riot, including six 
people accused of the murder 
of Police Constable Keith 
Blakelock. 


any one category from up to a 
dozen in each list. 

While the problem of a 
more liberal fare structure 
within Europe is thought to be 
close 10 a suecesful agreement! 
the transport ministers' meet- 
ing will not have the power to 
formally pul it into effect. : 

They are believed to be 
ready ’to make a positive 
recommendation for final ap» 
provai next month, although 
there are still disagreement} 
over the question of the 
number of seats on any route 
which individual countries 
can offer for sale. 

Many existing bilateral 
agreements provide a 50 per 
cent share for each country*- 
The European Commission 
has proposed that this should 
be amended to allow one 
country up to 75 per cent ofafl 
seats available. 

Some member countries 
want the difference to be no 
more than 45 to 55 per cent. 

Whatever the result, the 
meeting is the most positive 
step so (hr in freeing Europe 
from the strict regime of 
controls imposed on aviation 
within the community.

THE TIMES FRIDAY OCTOBER 3 1986 


LABOUR PARTY CONFERENCE 


Big majority 
in favour of 
non-nuclear 
arms policy 


Defence • Welfare State • Nationalization • Local councils 


' ' 


The Labour Parly’s 
determination to pursue its 
non-nuclear defence policy 
within the framework of the 
North Atlantic Treaty 
Organization, as set out by Mr 
Neil Kinnock in his speech on 
Tuesday, was well and truly 
confirmed in Blackpool 
yesterday. 

In a card vote, delegates, 
mainly from the unions, re- 
jected by 5.411. (XX) votes to 

1.033.000 a composite mo- 
tion. moved by Bristol West 
constituency, advocating 
withdrawal from Nato as a 
step towards a European 
nuclear free zone. 

That resolution had also 

% If we are serious 
about unilateralism 
the military bases 
must be removed 9 

sought withdrawal of all 
United Slates military bases, 
whether nuclear, conventional 
or communications, from 
British soil and waters. This 
was also the main demand of 
another composite motion, 
moved by Canliff Central and 
rejected by 5.209.000 votes to 
1.159.000. 

There was a similar five to 
one majority, but this time in 
favour, of an Amalgamated 
Lin ion of Engineering 
Workers' motion reaffirming 
the policy of support for Nato 
and the UN peacekeeping 
role. It called on the next 
Labour Government to nego- 
tiate treaty terms to govern the 
maintenance of US military 
bases in the UK. The voting 
was 5.417.000 votes for and 

1.023.000 against. 

Also carried, this time by 

5.268.000 votes to 1.087.000, 
was a Richmond (North York- 
shire) composite motion deal- 
ing mainly with disarmament 
matters. It called for an im- 
mediate end to British nucleai 
tests, arms exports and British 
participation in the strategic 
defence initiative. 

Finally, an emergency mo- 
tion protesting about pending 
redundancies in the royal 


dockyards and calling for their 
return to public ownership 
•was agreed to. 

Mr Job Owen Jones, par- 
liamentary candidate for Car- 
diff Central, calling for the 
removal of all US military 
bases from British soil said 
the existence of foreign bases 
on American soil would be an 
affront to US national pride. 

Congressmen would not 
stand idly by while Wash- 
ington civil servants handed 
over territory and allowed a 
foreign nation the right to start 
a war from its territory with- 
out guaranteeing as much as a 
“by your leave". 

Mr Bill Millar, Glasgow. 
CathcarL who seconded, said 
they had a duty to re-examine, 
not renegotiate, their position 
in relation to US bases. If they 
were serious about their uni- 
lateralism the military bases 
must be removed 

Miss Anne Lemon, Bristol 
West, moving the resolution 
calling for Britain's with- 
drawal from Nato, said the 
function of that organization 
was to link British and Euro- 
pean foreign policies with that 
of the US. 

Mr John Mason, Blaenau 
Gwent, seconding, said the 
security of the British people 
would remain in the balance 
while this country stayed in 
Nato. Britain would continue 
to contribute to the threat of 
nuclear war. 

As the next prime minister 
Mr Kinnock must tell 
“Ram bo" Reagan and his Star 
Wars cast to keep out of 
British politics. By leaving 
Nato this country could de- 
velop policies for the British 
people which were just and 
safe. 

Mr Bill Jordan, president of 
the AEU, moved the motion 
calling for negotiations to 
govern the maintenance of US 
military bases in Britain . He 
said it was as well to remem- 
ber that the Soviet Union 
made 88 million Europeans an 
offer of membership they 
could not refuse. The Warsaw 
Pact was bom and member- 
ship was for life. 

As a trade unionist he asked 



The Labour leader Mr Neil Kinnock leading by a head at Blackpool yesterday while Mrs Glenys Kinnock “shies away" 

from the prospect of a confrontation with Flint * 


lety 

conference: “Are you really 
saying we should offer the 
people who crush trade unions 
in Poland and bomb villages 
in Afghanistan a strike-free 
deal?” Balanced verifiable 
arms cootrol and disarma- 
ment was the path to a stable 
peace. 

The Nato shield had given 
Europe 37 years of peace and 
the British electorate de- 
manded support for the 
organization. 

Mr Alan Ranger, Bury St 
Edmunds, seconding, said 
there were three American 
bases in his constituency 
containing chemical as well as 

# Policy is one of the 
most radical present- 
ed to the electorate 9 

nuclear weapons. A treaty 
must be negotiated or. if 
necessary, forced upon the 
special relationship with the 
US. For such a treaty to be 
effective it must be verifiable. 

Mr Steve Hoyland, Rich- 
mond (Yorkshire), moving 
the disarmament resolution 
calling for an immediate end 
to British nuclear tests, arms 
exports and British participa- 
tion in the strategic defence 
initiative, said that above all 
they must convince the Bnush 
people of the validity of the 


moral argument against pour- 
ing scarce resources down the 
drain into non-productive 
weapons of destruction. 

Mr Colin Gray, Glasgow, 
Garscadden, said tney must 
campaign with one voice on a 
non-nuclear policy. They 
could not tolerate ill-timed or 
ill-conceived remarks at elec- 
tion time which could damage 
their prospects. 

Mr Bill Morris, deputy 
general secretary. Transport 
and General Workers’ Union, 
moved an emergency motion 
attacking privatization of 
Devonport and Rosyth. 

He said that catastrophe 
faced those yards. The emer- 
gency was not an act of God 
but was entirely woman- 
made, an act of a Tory 
Government as devastating as 
any natural disaster. 

Government folly would 
gravely damage the national 
interest but the Tories were 
silent on defence, he said. 
Only the Labour Party and 
trade unions cared about the 
defence of Great Britain, and 
were the true patriots. 

Mr Denzil Davies. MP for 
Llanelli and Labour spokes- 
man on defence and disarma- 
ment said the party's policy 
for defence was one of the 
most radical ever presented to 
the British electorate: it chal- 
lenged the orthodoxy of the 


military and the propaganda 
of right and mapped out a 
sensible defence strategy as 
Britain entered the twenty- 
first century. 

“But we will only win and 
carry it through after the next 
election if we are united in the 
policy. We cannot afford the 
luxury of picking and chosing 
whatever group or part of the 
party we belong to. The policy 
stands as whole. If it does not, 
it falls and we fell with it" 

Mr Alex Kitson, NEC and 
deputy general secretary, 
TGWU, said the party was 
now united behind the policy 
established in 1984. That in- 
cluded the cancellation of the 

6 It will help redace 
the arms race and 
movement towards a 
nuclear free world 9 

£12,000 million Trident, the 
decommissioning of the old 
clapped out Polaris, sending 
back the US-owned and con- 
trolled cruise missiles and 
securing the removal of all 
other nuclear weapons from 
this country. That was a firm 
commitment 

The decommissioning 
would lead to a missile for 
missile reduction by the 
Soviet Union, which would 
help reduce the arms race and 
the move towards a nuclear 


free Europe and nuclear free 
world. 

The party hoped the pro- 
posed meeting in Iceland 
would produce not just words 
but action. 

The Conservatives were 
planning big cuts to make way 
for Trident which was a threat 
to the jobs of thousands of 
workers in the defence in- 
dustries as well as to the 
country’s survival. 

Labour would use the say- 
ings from Trident to maintain 
die role of conventional de- 
fences and would stop the 
Conservative policy of selling 
arms to dictators such as 
Pinochet All arms would be 
under stria political control. 

The party was united in the 
essential need to establish a 
non-nuclear, non-prolifera- 
tion policy in Europe which 
would contribute to Europe 
asserting its own interests, not 
becoming a new super power 
which would only make the 
situation worse, and to work 
for a new detante and 
disarmament between East 
and West 

It must use its international 
role in Nato and in the UN a 
positive way to work for a new 
detante between Nato and the 
Warsaw Paa leading to the 
mutual dissolution of those 
two blocs and the introduction 
of a new. all European non- 
nuclear system. 


LOW PAY 

Minimum 
wage a 
priority 

As one of its highest prior- 
ities, the next Labour govern- 
ment would introduce -a 
statutory minimum wage. Mr 
Roy Hattersley. deputy leader 
and shadow Chancellor, told 
the conference during its de- 
bate on low pay. 

He said that he did not 
pretend it could be done 
quickly or that the party could 
stipulate the level at which it 
would be introduced. But it 
would not be a Trojan horse 
for a statutory incomes 
policy. 

Calling for a renewed 
partnership between industry, 
the unions and the Govern- 
ment. he said that if they stuck 
to the old pattern and old 
conventions all they would 
achieve was the same level of 
poverty at a higher level of 
inflation. 

He gave a warning that to 
make promises about what the 
level of the statutory mini- 
mum wage would be in the 
first year of a Labour govern- 
ment would be offering prom- 
ises that nobody believed _ 

Mr Garfield Davies. Union 
of Shop. Distributive and 
Allied Workers, successfully 
moving the composite motion 
calling on a Labour govern- 
ment to legislate fora national 
minimum wage, said that low 
pay existed because the La- 
bour Party had not done 
enough about it and the Tories 
had done much worse by 
deliberate intention. 

Miss Anne Davis. National 
Union of Labour and Socialist 
Clubs, said that women had 
suffered far worse than men 
under the Government. Of the 
eight million low paid, six 
million were women. 


LOCAL COUNCILS 

Surcharges 
pledge to 
rate rebels 

A Labour government 
would lift the surcharges and 
disqualifications imposed on 
local councillors, Mr David 
BIunketL for the NEC said 
when he replied to the debate 
on local government. 

They would do more for 
them, he said, than they had 
when they let down the Clay 
Cross councillors years ago. 

“We shall ensure that the 
Lambeth councillors are not 
forgotten. I hope that every- 
one will help raise money to 
pay for the surcharge to stop 
them being bankrupted. Help 
them and the Liverpool coun- 
cillors who go to the House of 
Lords in January." 

Conference remitted to the 
NEC a resolution recognizing 
that the Greater London 
Council and metropolitan 
councils need not be recreated 
in their old form. Miss 
Christine Blake, Chingford, 
seconding, said it was ridicu- 
lous that a city the size of 
London had no directly- 
elected authority to deal with 
planning policy. The Metro- 
politan Police was the only 
force which was not account- 
able to a local committee 

The other motion before 
conference was carried. 
Moved by Miss Joyce 
Winsett, president of Nupe. 

It called on the next Labour 
government to return all pri- 
vatized services to direct la- 
bour. deny the Audit 
Commission the ability ro 
remove elected councillors 
and abolish the concept of 
persona] liability, remove 
repressive central government 
control over councils' capital 
spending and reform local 
government finance. 


NORTHERN IRELAND 

Violence ‘no solution’ 

A motion condemning the 
Anglo-Irish accord as “yet 
another attempt to impose an 
internal settlement” and re- 
inforce the partition, was re- 
jected by a big majority. 

The motion, from Hackney 
North and Sioke Newington, 
supported unconditional self- 
determination for the Irish, 
reaffirmed support for a 
united Ireland and called on 
the next Labour government 
to terminate British sov- 


ereignty and withdraw mili- 


ranl? 1 as an urgent priority. 
Voting was 4.408.000 to 
402.000. 


Miss Nadine Finch, moving 
the motion, said that although 
Sinn Fein won 59 seats in 
Northern Ireland local elec- 
tions they were prevented 
from taking their seats. Why 
did the party support Mrs 
Thatcher on Ireland. but not 
in any other area? 

Mr Peter Archer. Labour 
spokesman on Northern Ire- 
land. said ihat violence could 
not bring about a peaceful 
united Ireland. There had to 
be a strategy for a transition 
and they could not have that 
without talking to the Irish 
Government. 


SOCIAL OWNERSHIP 


‘No compensation 9 call is rejected 



The proposal that public 
assets privatized by the 
Conservative Government 
should be renalionalized with- 
out compensation was re- 
jected without a card vote. 

A national executive 
committee policy document 
on social ownership setting 
priorities for bringing public 
utilities, key industries and 
finance into public ownership 
was carried on a show of 
hands, after Mr Roy 
Hattersley. deputy leader of 
the party, for the NEC, said 
that the document replaced a 
one-line slogan with a detailed 
programme, which an incom- 
ing Labour government would 
put into effect 
Mr John Smith, MP. chief 
spokesman on trade and in- 
dustry, said that the NEC 
proposals were both radical 
and practical radical because 
they proposed to bring back 
into public ownership the 
largest industries with 
privatization of British 
Telecom and British Gas and 
practical because it could and 
would be done by the next 
Labour government 
They had to tackle priorities 
and were selecting the public 
utilities because they needed 
social ownership of tele- 
comunications when 20 per 
cent still had no access to a 


‘A genuine shift of wealth 9 


Key decisions about 
people's jobs, lives and 
communities were made not in 
Parliament but in the board- 
rooms of multi-national 
corporations. Mr David 
Blank ett leader of Sheffield 
City Council, said when he 
introduced the Labour Party 
document on social ownership. 

The party intended to bring 
about not merely a change in 
the boundaries of ownership 
but a genuine shift in the 
balance of wealth and power. 

The document, which was 
carried overwhelmingly at the 
conclusion of the debate on 
motions about social owner- 
ship. sets out proposals for 
ensuring that British Telecom, 
gas and water are fully socially 
owned. 

It proposes the establish- 
ment of a British Investment 
Bank and British Savings 
Bank to ensure a significant 
socially-owned presence in the 
financial sector, and the set- 
ting up of British Enterprise, a 
holding company, which will 
establish new, socially-owned 
companies and enter into joint 
ventures with the private 
sector. 


Mr Blunkett said that Mrs 
Thatcher was dedicated to a 
mission to remove the values 
of co-operation and mutuality, 
the collective community ap- 
proach which had built up the 
industries, services and the 
kind of caring society Labour 
was attempting to defend. 

The Prime Minister's atti- 
tude was best summed up by 
words spoken a few years ago: 
“Capitalism gives to each and 
every one of us the opportunity 
if we only seize it with both 
hands". 

This was a betting shop 
economy with Nigel Lawson as 
the bookies' runner. It was a 
society where people were 
encouraged simply to make on 
the Stock Exchange. 

“We have political 
advertisements on television 
which encourage us to believe 
that by giving away what 
already belongs to us we widen 
and share our wealth and our 
ownership. It is a mockery." 

TSB depositors were en- 
couraged to take shares and 
make overnight a 100 per cent 
profit simply by being in the 
right place at the right time. 
“What sort of ethics and 


values do we give to oar 
children and grandchildren 
when they see that attempting 
to get a job is belittled r 

If Labour's values were so 
good and it believed that 
spreading democracy and 
accountability through social 
ownership was the right way 
forward, why had it not con- 
vinced the bulk of the popula- 
tion? It was because the way 
the nationalized industries 
were operated had been al- 
lowed to become centralized 
and bureaucratized. 

Should the Conservatives 
ever have the opportunity to 
re-mtroduce their proposals to 
take one of the most central 
natural assets, the production 
and distribution of the water 
supply, back into private 
ownership, in his view Labour 
should take it back without 
compensation. 

But the party was not 
committed to that, or to refus- 
ing to give compensation, for a 
very good reason: the peas km 
fund and small shareholders 
and the need to win over 
people to Labour's view rather 
than punish them. 


telephone and they wanted to 
stop the folly of British 
Telecom buying equipment 
from non-British suppliers. 

They proposed a new state 
holding company which could 
take public ownership into 
new areas and industries 
which were being neglected. 
They proposed support for 
local enterprise and for the 
first time gave a detailed plan 
for wholehearted support for 
workers' co-operatives. 

Mr Hattersley said that the 
policy statement was based on 
three related principles and 
the NEC wanted no doubt 
about it to exist among dele- 
gates or outside. 

The balance of the mixed 
economy had to be changed to 
increase substantially the so- 
cially-owned sector; no single 
form of social ownership was 
right for every industry and 
firm. 

“The third principle is that 
we are serious about social 
ownership and have replaced 
a one-line slogan about na- 
tionalization with practical 
policies which the next La- 
bour government can and will 
put into operation." 

The classic nationalization 
state corporation centrally 
owned and niri was one of the 
forms of social ownership and 
was right for the public util- 
ities. That was why they 
reaffirmed their commitment 
to renationalize British 
Telecom and British Gas, but 
to those who called for im- 
mediate renationalization of 
everything the Tories had 
privatized, he said there were 
more important things than 
spending three or four leg- 
islative days taking the 
Glcneagles Hotel back into the 
public sector. 

They needed more com- 
panies owned and run by 
those who worked in ibenu 
more co-operatives; more of 
the municipal enterprises 
which had been one of tiie few 
areas of economic success in 
the past seven years. They had 
to give local authorities the 
right, the power, and the 
finance to invest in and own 
companies within their areas 
to give a massive boost to 
democracy and employment 

That would make a . for 
bigger hole in the private 
sector than an Art of Par- 
liament setting up another 
London-based central body. 
Their policy was to have more 
social ownership in new firms 
rim by workers and consumers 
within regions and not from 
London, social ownership re- 
inforced by a British enter- 
prise company with strategic 
slakes in key industries. 


PENSIONS 

Jobless 
and old 
to get 
increases 

A series of pledges to in- 
crease payments to pension- 
ers, the long-term 
unemployed and other groups, 
were given by Mr Michael 
Meacfaer. opposition spokes- 
man on health and social 
security and a member of the 
national executive committee, 
when he replied to a debate on 
the welfare state. 

The conference carried by 

6.412.000 votes to 3,000, a 
majority of 6,409,000, a 
Transport and General 
Workers' Union motion 
promising that the manifesto 
for the next election would 
contain an immediate 
commitment to increase state 
pensions to not less titan half 
of average earnings for a 
married couple and not less 
than one third for single 
person. 

The majority ensures the 
pensions pledge is automati- 
cally official party policy on 
which the next election mani- 
festo is drawn up. 

Mr Meacher said that the 
Tories had cut the pension by 
£5 a week by breaking the link 
with earnings. “We mil, as an 
immediate priority, restore 
that by increasing the single 
person pension by £5 a week 
and the married pension by £8 
a week. We will restore 
Labour’s State Earnings Re- 
lated Pension Scheme (Serps). 
the best deal the pensioner has 
ever had and which in the next 
decade will double the real 
value of the pension." 

A second resolution was 
calling for a reduction in the 
retirement age for men to 60 
was remitted to the NEC for 
further consideration, after 
Mr Meacher had pointed out 
that while this was a longer- 
term objective, it could not be 
done immediately at a cost of 
more £2,500 million. 

In a further card vote which 
constituted another manifesto 
item, a motion was carried 
committing a Labour govern- 
ment to the immediate repeal 
of this year’s Social Security 
Act which is due to come into 
force in 1988. The voting was 

6.319.000 votes to 173.000, 
majority of 6.146,000. 

Mr Meacher said that never 
again would they allow the 
social security system to be 
used as a weapon . of malice 
against workers in dispute like 
the £1 7 a week deducted from. 
miners to tiy . to force them 
into submission. 

Labour's priority for the 
unemployed was jobs, but in 
the interim they would pay the 
long-term unemployed the 
higher rate of benefit, an extra 
£12 a week. 

Mr Ron Todd, general sec- 
retary of the TGWU, moving 
the resolution, said that July’s 
increase in pensions of 40p a 
week was the smallest in 
memory. Since 1 979 pension- 
ers had been felling behind. 

He wanted standing charges 
for electricity, gas and tele- 
phones abolished for pension- 
ers. He wanted a commitment 
to free transport for old people 
and a regular tax-free Christ- 
mas bonus and an increase in 
the death grant In the long 
term he wanted retirement at 
60. 


COMMENTARY 


HEALTH 

Pledge to 
cut cost 
of drugs 

A future Labour govern- 
ment was committed to take 
one or more drug companies 
into public ownership to pro- 
vide generic drugs cheaply for 
the National Health Service, 
in a resolution carried by 

5.540.000 to 801.000. 

The resolution also de- 
manded an end to all cutbacks 
in NHS financing and the 
allocation of more resources; 
ending low pay for health 
service workers and the sack- 
ing of private contractors. 

Miss Sarah Stephens, Eo- 
des. proposing, said that the 
profits of drugs companies 
were being allowed to in- 
crease. while, wages and work- 
ing conditions for health 
service workers were being 
attacked by the Government 

Mr Dand WHfiams. Conf- 
ederation of Health Service 
Employees, agreed to remit a 
resolution which included a 
call for the public ownership 
of all companies manufac- 
turing artificial limbs, wheel- 
chairs and ancillary 
equipment for the disabled. 

Mrs Margaret Beck ett , MP 
for Derby .South, asking for; 
that remission on behalf of the 
national executive committee; 
said it would pre-empt a 
working party which would be 
producing a report on the 
future of the health service. •

Geoffrey Smith 


This has been the first 
Labour conference for years 
♦iiat has bees more concerned 
to look outward than to look 
toward. 

We hare become accus- 
tomed. to conferences domi- 
nated by internecine strife, by 
battles between left and 
between a bdeagured h_ 
diip aid extr emist rebels. 

But a party obsessed wit h its 
own internal straggles never 
looks credible as a potential 
government, and the prevail- 
ing mood within, the Labour 

Party at this time is a 
determination to get hack into 
office. 

So this has been a .con- 
ference with an overriding 
purpose: to demonstrate to the 
conn try that it has at tost 
sorted Itself out. 

We have been presented 
with the spectacle of a party 
cinder firm leadership, reject- 
ing extremism, hugely mated 
on policy and able to contain 
the differences that do remain 
with a bit Of careful fudging. 


Wider interests 
given priority 


Today’s agenda 

The final session of con- 
ference this morning will con- 
sider party -campaigns, 
transport policy, the state of 
the shipbuilding indnstryand 
a other items of business sot 
taken on previbos.days. 


Conference reports by Alan Wood, Robert Morgan, John Winder, Anthony Hodges and Howard Underwood 


Mott of the high points of 
the week have contrib u ted to 
this impression. The quiet 
departure hfMflbat without a 
final stand seemed to sym- 
bolize the recognition by the 
extreme lea that the game was 
up within foe party. The 
national executive committee 
elections indicated a shift in 
the balance of power, not just 
ofappearances. 

Mr Neil Kmnock’s speech 
demonstrated his grip over the 
party, or rather the reception 
.of his speech did so. To my 
mind, it was not so nodi that 
foe speech evoked applause 
which established Us control, 
as that such rapturous ap- 
plause for a moderate speech 
showed that he had estab- 
lished Us control already. 

The large measure of agree- 
ment displayed over policy 
does' not mean that members 
of the party have suddenly and 
miraculously ceased to differ. 

It is rather that they have 
for foe moment deckled to give 
priority to their wider political 
Interests. So foe most serums 
conflicts have been kept dis- 
creetly out of.ttght 

That is the mark of a party 
seriously in pursuit of power. 
But for how long can Labour 
presave this discretion?' I 
think probably until after the 
electioa. - 

If foal is lost, then I suspect 
that foe shattered expecta- 
tions wiH releases new wave of 
fratricide. If there is a lung 
Parliament then foe party may 
well be tugged in different 
directions. 

The unity that has now been 
achieved is essentially on foe 
terms of die soft left. That foe 
hard left has been poshed to * 
the periphery of the con-! 
ference has been evident 

Its power within the party ■ 
has certainly not been elimi- 
nated with the expulsion of 
Militant but fashions do mat- 
ter within political parties and 
foe hard loft is at this moment 
out of festoon to the Labour.' 
Party. Bnt foe right has lost 1 
influence as well. . .. ‘ 

Soft is in a double sense the * 
new Kinnock model font is 
now on display. The party’s 
electoral standing win, I am 
sure, benefit from the more 
seemly way in which ft has . 
conducted itself at Blackpool. 
Bat what of its policies? 


Defence stand 
poses liability 


I -suspect that Labour - 
spokesmen will still have a ; 
good deal of explaining to do . 
about their plans for social ’ 
ownership, for controftmg the 
economy, for establishing 
their spending priorities and 
paying for their programme. 
Then there is defence. ' * ’ 

The one development to this 
conference season that surely 
cannot be to die Eking of 
Labour strategists is foe way . 
m which foe defence issue has~ 
cooe hack to foe top of the ! 
poltical agenda. 

Only a few weeks ago the 
more thoughtful Conservatives : 
were fearful that defence 
would hot figme as prom- 
ioendy at foe next ejection as t 
it did at foe last. Now, as much «■ 
because of' what happened -at I 
the Social Democratic Party - 
and Liberal conferences as . 
because of events - at, Black- - 
pook'ft is a hot issue again. 

- No election is simply a re-; ; 
ran of foe previous <me qnd ft 
is necessary to watch for any * 


K 


Labour would have one fiabfl- “ 
ity to fighting a campaign oa 
defence. ■- ■ 

If all the members; of the - 
shadow Cabinet were puton a * 
JJedetector Ido out drink there 
would be a majority for 
Labour’s present defeoct poi-

Sellafield had a death rate that 
was 2 per cent less than the 
general population and 9 per 
cent less than for Cumbria. 


By Pearce Wright, Science Editor 


The death rate from can- was found that 2JJ77 had died. 


cers. in particular, was 5 per 
cent less ibr the general 
population and 3 per cent 
than for Cumbria. 

The results of the studv. by 
Dr Peter Smith and Dr Alison 
Douglas, of the London 
School of Hygiene and Tropi- 
cal. Medicine, are to be pub- 
lished today in the British 
Medical Journal. 

. The research was commis- 
sioned by British Nuclear 
Fuels, after criticism of inad- 
equate information by the 
Royal Commission on 
Environmental Pollution 
about the risks of cancer from 
exposure to low levels of 
radiation. . 

The doctors studied every- 
one who had been employed 
at Sellafield, formerly. 
WindscaJe. at any time be- 
tween the opening of the site 
m 1947 and the end of 1975. 

The status of each one was 
traced up to the end of 1984. It 


372 from cancer-Among them 
were a small number showing 
the excess of death, compared 
with the general population, 
from myeloma, prostate can- 
cer. leukaemia and pancreas 
cancer. 

The excess of deaths for 
those conditions was consis- 
tent with calculations, using 
formulae of International 
Commission for Radiological 
Protection, on the link be- 
tween exposure to radiation 
and cancer. 

British Nuclear Fuels, said 
yesterday that the conclusions 
between multiple myeloma, 
and possibly leukaemia and 
bladder cancer and radiation 
accumulated more than 15 
years previously, will form an 
area for further research. 

The company noted that 
those associations had not 
been found in other indepen- 
dent studies of occupational 
radiation exposure. 


Lobby groups ‘too 
quick to moan 9 

By Gavin Bell, Arts Correspondent 


Pressure groups and self- 
appointed experts should pro- 
duce evidence to back their 
arguments before complaining 
to the Advertising Standards 
Authority, its chairman. Lord 
McGregor of Durris, 
yesterday. 

“Their advice washes across 
my desk in the form of often 
peremptorily phrased sugges- 
tions that the authority should 
regulate and reduce the 
advertising of such foodstuffs 
as sugar and dairy products in 
the interests of health”. Lord 
McGregor said in his annual 
report. 

Objections were also raised 
about promoting alcohol and 
furs, with the assertion that 
severe restrictions or banning 
of such advertisements would 
be in the interests of the 
population. 

“It is no part of . the 
authority's duty to establish a 
censorship on behalf of groups 
or organizations which believe 
that they know how to make 
all of us better” he sai<L ; 

Health campaigners were 
among ' those assuring the 
right to alter theliabrri of the 


populace, but were often “just 
as "gullible and responsive to 
fads and fashions as the rest of 
us”. 

The authority often had to 
negotiate minefields where 
prejudice and ignorance mas- 
queraded as knowledge. An 
example was the inconclusive 
debate on the relationship 
between salt and 
hypertension. 

Lord McGregor concluded 
that just as the authority must 
ask advertisers to substantiate 
their claims, so must it also 
test claims by complainants. 

The authority received 
7,308 complaints in 1985, of 
which 123 were upheld. Holi- 
day advertising provided the 
largest number of protests, 
followed by advertisements 
for cars and computers. 

An investigation of promo- 
tions for slimming products 
found that several contained 
claims that could not be 
proved: “Experience has 
shown that regimes which 
offer instant size and weight 
reduction are invariably slim 
only. .in terms of 
substantiation”. 


Success in 
hunt for 
Libyans 

By Peter Evans 
Home Affairs 
Correspondent 

Eleven Libyans have been 
traced after a search by the 
Home Office, police and se- 
curity services, amid renewed 
concern about , Colonel 
Gadaffi’s terrorist connec- 
tions. 

Inquiries are continuing in 
12 remaining cases, the Home 
Office said yesterday. 

An investigation to locate 
54 Libyans who had over- 
stayed their visas began m the 
wake of the American raid on 
Libya and fears of possible 
reprisals. 

Of the 54. 24 have left 
Britain, four have been de- 
ported, three have been given 
further leave to remain and 
applications to stay are under 
consideration 

A Horae Office spokesman 
said yesterday: “It should not 
be assumed that in the 12 
cases where inquiries are 
continuing that the individ- 
uals concerned have gone to 
ground, are seeking to evade 
immigration control, or are a 
threat to security. Such in-, 
quiries inevitably take time ”

£2.5m campaign for 
bone marrow donors 


Two fathers seeking suit- 
able bone marrow donors for 
their children yesterday 
launched a £2.5 million 
project to register 100,000 
potential donors within six 
weeks. 

Mr John Humphries and 
Mr Malcolm Thomas, both of 
South Wales, hope to more 
than double the number of 
volunteers ready to donate 
bone marrow to sufferers of 
leukaemia and other related 
diseases. They need £500,000 
to complete the project. 

Mr Humphries' son, Mark, 
aged 25, who has myeloid 
leukaemia, is at University 
College Hospital, London,, 
where tiie disease is being held 
in remission after 
chemotheraphy. 


Mr Thomas's, danghter, 
Alexandra, aged nine, is 
suffering from aplastic anae- 
mia, a disease which destroys 
the bone marrow. Her only 
cure is a successful transplant. 

Both fathers decided a mass 
appeal for more registered 
donors was the best hope for 
their children. They enlisted 
the aid of George Cole and 
Pauline Collins, the actors, 
who attended the launch at the 
Waldorf Hotel, London, 
yesterday. 

There are more than 2,000 
new leukaemia cases in Brit- 
ain each year. The Anthony 
Nolan Laboratories, at St 
Mary Abbots Hospital, Lon- 
don, a list of more than 
70,000 donors, but only 40 per 
cent can be found. 


Telecom 
entering 
satellite 
TV race 

By Jonathan Miller 
Media Correspondent 

British Telecom is prepar- 
ing to offer sateDfte-co-home 
television services in com- 
petition with the direct 
broadcasting by satellite plan 
of the Independent Broadcast- 
ing Authority, a spokesman 
said yesterday. 

It has ordered eight 
transmitting channels on a 
new European satellite system 
that is capable of beaming 
television programmes di- 
rectly to small receiving 
aerials suitable for borne in- 
stallation. 

The channels are likely to 
be offered to the programmers 
who are transmitting satellite 
signals already to British and 
European cable networks, and 
may be used by Starstream, 
the programme service for 
young people in which BT has 
a minority interest. 

“If DBS does go ahead well 
have the capacity to go in there 
offering services,” a British 
Telecom spokesman said. 

“The technology is outstrip- 
ping the ability of the regu- 
lators to control it,” according 
to Mr Bruce Fireman, manag- 
ing director of Fireman Rose, a 
firiu specializing in financing 
communications ventures. 

SeAor Andrea Carnso, 
director general of the Euro- 
pean Telecommunications 
Satellite Organization, a con- 
sortium owned by Europe's 
telecommunications admin- 
istrations, saidthat the British 
order was for transmitters on 
the first of a new series of 
advanced-technology general 
purpose satellites called 
Eatei&at II, to be launched in 
1989. 


Report on church 
racism ‘will lead 
to a witch-hunt 9 

By Clifford Longley, Religions Affairs Correspondent 

“as a basis for work for racial 
justice”. 

Other recommendations 
include: 

• No decisions affecting the 
whole church should be made 
by all-vx hive groups: 

• The Church should “lose its 
respectable image and espouse 
unrespcciablc causes”: 

• Organized Support by 
church groups for victims of 
racial % iolcncc. including 
“forms of defence": 

• The Church should support 
police accountability to 
elected authorities: 

• Church financial institu- 
tions should take part in an 
investment boycott of South 
Africa: 

• Every parish and diocese 
should draw up and publish 
an “anti-racist declaration”: 

• There should be a “Black 
Anglican Training Unit" and 
an “Association of Black 
Anglicans”. 

The Rev Kenneth Leech, 
the Church of England's race 
relations field officer, said in 
the report that the Church has 
so far seen racialism as a blot 
on the landscape and a de- 
viation from the British way 
of life, believing that “what 
was wanted to remove them 
was a good dose of goodwill 
and purity of heart”. 

If. instead, racialism was by 
its nature “institutional, struc- 
tural. dynamic, built into our 
social, political economic and 
cultural life at a deep level.” 
then opposing it was a more 
profound and radical task. 

The report will he launched 
officially at a press conference 
on Monday. 

Anglicans and Racism (Church 
House Bookshop. Great Smith 
Street. London SW1:£2 25). 


A recommendation that the 
Church of England should 
“take to the streets" to protest 
about racism is made in a 
report b> activists. 

The report has brought 
complaints from Conser- 
vative MPs — one of whom 
said the authors must be “off 
their heads”. 

The report proposes “more 
dramatic, symbolic actions of 
protest and defiance”, instead 
of such conventional means as 
resolutions in the General 
Synod and letters to 77jr 
Times. 

It also says that the Church 
should compile a register of 
people who support the strug- 
gle against racism, to assist 
lobbying, and a list of those 
who are not sympathetic, who 
would be “regularly 
challenged”. 

This last proposal was at- 
tacked as a “McCarthyite 
witch-hunt” by Mr Peter 
Bruinvel5. MP for Leicester 
East, who is a member of the 
General Synod. 

Sir Kenneth Lewis, MP for 
Stamford and Spalding, ac- 
cused the report's authors of 
advocating taking to the street 
to cause turmoil 

The report's proposals came 
from a meeting of churchmen 
and black activists in Bir- 
mingham in the spring, and 
from one of four “w orkshops” 
which contributed to the 
meeting. 

A church spokesman 
pointed out that the proposals 
carried no more authority 
than that, and had not been 
endorsed by any official board 
or commission. 

The report will not be 
submitted to the General 
Synod, but will be circulated 
as its stands to alt the dioceses 


Saleroom 


Roman silver coins fetch £77,000 

By Geraldine Norman, Sale Room Correspondent 
Part of a hoard of late fourth seum. The femily had retained find a resurgence of bidding at 


century Roman silver coins 
that was dug up at Holway, 
near Taunton, in 1821 came 
up for sale at Lawrence's of 
Crewkeme yesterday and se- 
cured £77,000 for the descen- 
dants of the landowner. 

The coins were discovered 
while a field was being 
ploughed and there are 
thought to have been about 
500 coins in the original 
hoard, many of which are in 
the Somerset County Mu- 


1 1 1 coins which were sent for 
sale yesterday. 

The top price was £7.040 
(estimate £4.500-£6,000) for a 
miliarense of Eugenius, an 
emperor who only lasted two 
years from 392 to 394 AD. 
The cheapest lot contained 
two siliquae of Julian II (360- 
363 AD) at £66. Every coin 
from the hoard found a buyer. 

Hie coin market has been 
depressed recently and 
Sotheby's we delighted to 


their first sale of the season, 
which made £371.410. 

Brighton Museum was 
among the bidders in the bank- 
note section, spending £165 
(estimate £100-£150) to ac- 
quire a £1 note and a£l0 note 
of the type issued by two 
private Brighton banks in the 
nineteenth century. 

The design of the £1 note 
incorporates a fetching vi- 
gnette of Brighton Pavilion. 



Ahead of the Big Bang, stock- 
brokers Capel-Cure Myers* have been 
making a few noises themselves.

Craxi reacts angrily to 
secret report that he 
lied over Achille LaurO 



From Peter Nichols, Rome 


The ghost of Leon Kling- 
ifler. the crippled American 


hoffer. the crippled American 
tourist murdered by Arab 
hijackers a year ago on board 
the liner Achille Laura, is back 
io haunt the Italian Govern- 
ment in the shape of a secret 
report alleging that Signor 
Bettino Craxi, the Prime Min- 
ister, lied to Parliament in his 
account of the case. 

Signor Craxi is said to have 
been ‘•infuriated’' by allega- 
tions in a draft report on the 
incident drawn up by Senator 
Ubero Gual tieri, chairman of 
the parliamentary committee 
for supervision of the secret 
services. 


He states in his report that 
the Prime Minister was aware 
that there had been a murder 
on board the hijacked Italian 
cruise ship more than 24 
hours before be admitted 
knowing about it. And so the 
negotiations with the terror- 
ists were conducted in the full 
but undisclosed knowledge 
that they had committed a 
serious crime. 

As a result of the negotia- 
tions the terrorists were al- 
lowed to go free after 


surrendering and .handing 
back the cruise ship and the 
passengers. 

The Gualderi report has 
already been the subject of two 
protests by Signor Craxi. The 
first came last week, when the 
text of the highly damaging 
draft somehow reached the 
weekly/. ’Espresso. 

Signor Craxi protested in 
letters to the presiding officers 
of both houses of Parliament 
in which he described thedraff 
as “a heap of falsities and 
distortions". 

His second letter of protest 
was sent on Wednesday night 
and contested the committee's 
right to question the Govern- 
ment's conduct at alL 

The Prime Minister pointed 
out that the committee's func- 
tion was the supervision of the 
secret services, but they had 
only a marginal place in the 


interpretation of an extra- 
dition treaty. All of which 
have nothing to do with the 
secret services and are subjects 
which by law are. outside the 
committee's competence." 

There could hardly be a 
clearer implicit request for the 
senator's resignation. 

The case revives bitter 
memories. Senator Gualtieri

Deepening divisions in Lebanon’s Christian community 


Phalangists execute eight militiamen 


From Robert Fisk 
Beirut 


rut front-line into Ashrafieb 
last Saturday, were found 


Jordan channels West Bank funds 


From Ian Murray 
Jerusalem 


As proof of growing co- 
operation between Israel and 
Jordan in attempts to under- 
mine the Palestine Liberation 
Organization (PLO), an Arab 
bank is to open a branch on 
the West Bank for the first 
time since it was occupied by 
Israel in 1967. 


Significantly, it is the Gairo- 
Amman Bank the only one 
which is backed by the Jor- 


danian Central Bank. It can 
thus be used to channel invest- 
ment funds to finance the five- 
year development plan for the 
West Bank, launched by King 
Husain. 

The aim of the plan is to 
improve the quality of life in 
the territories and so check the 
emigration of unemployed, 
dissident Palestinians into 
Jordan. 

-As part of this strategy 
Jordan is easing restrictions 
on imports of agricultural 


produce from the occupied 
■ territories. 

- The United States is 
channelling millions of dollars 
worth of aid into the terri- 
tories through private vol- 
untary organizations. 

The King hopes, as does Mr 
Shimon Peres, the Israeli 
Prime Minister, that an 
improvement in living stan- 
dards will encourage a more 
moderate Palestinian leader- 
ship to emerge to replace the 
PLO. 


The macabre discovery of 
eight dead Christian militia- 
men, all apparently shot in the 
bead by a Phalangist “exe- 
cution squad" after last 
Saturday’s attack info east 
Beirut by pro-Syrian Chris- 
tian gnwmiHi, has added far- 
ther bitterness to an already 
divided Maronite Christian 
community in Lebanon. 

Their decomposing bodies 
were found scattered around 
east Beirut and in the Chris- 
tian town of Jounieb, tossed 
info basements and parking 
lots with the sort of abandon 
that Beirut’s victorious mi- 
litias have usually dem- 
onstrated on sech occasions. 

Two young men in their 20s, 
both believed to have belonged 
to Elie Hobeika’s militia, 
which stormed across the Bel- 


lying in a burnt-out car near 
the Hdpftnl Died, while an- 


the Hdpftal Dim, while an- 
other two were discovered in 
the basement of a corn mill 
near the Corniche en-Nahr . 

One man, in his early 30s, 
had been thrown into a 
Jouiueh parking lot. 

tf their fate were intended as 

a warning to ail those who 
oppose the Phalangist leader- 
ship of Mr Samir Geagea, it 
has apparently failed. 

The Maronite Catholic 
Church had already issued a 
harsh statement claiming that 
the “Lebanese Forces" — the 
mabreDa Christian militia fa 
which the Phalange is the 
dominant partner — was in “a 
state of disintegration” follow- 
ing the east Beirut battles. 

Mr Geagea has smee held a 
somewhat tense meeting with 


Patriarch Nasrallah Sfair , die 
spiritual head of the Maronite 
Church in Lebanon and the 
rest of the Middle East, after 
which the Phalangist com- 
mander said that the original 
church statement had bear 
based on “inaccurate 
information". 


But the Church did not 
withdraw it-The bishops had 
earlier condemned the murder 
of Colonel Khalil Keoaan, the 
Christian commander of the 
Lebanese Army's Fifth 
Brigade. 


He had been shot dead in 
his bed, ■ apparently by Mr 
Geacea's militiamen, after bis 
soldiers had killed two 
Phalangists at Monte Verdi in 
the foothills east of Beirut. 


The Syrians can only rejoice 
at such disunity within the 
Christian community.

American accusations

was again supporting inter,

disinformation campaign' to 
topple the Libyan leader, 
according to The Pasff/ngrm 
Post. 

Quoting While House dis- 
cussions and memoranda, -the- 
paper said in a front-put 
story yesterday that the 
Administration launched a 
secret campaign of deception 
in August to convince Colonel 
Gadaffi that he was about to 
be attacked by US bombers 
and ousted in a coup. 

The plan was adopted at a 
White House meeting on Aim 
gust 14. and outlined in a 
lhree-page memorandum- seat 
by Admiral John Poindexter. . 
the National Security Adviser, 
to President Reagan. 

“One of the key- elements is 
that it combines real and 
illusionary events — through a 
disinformation campaign — 
with the basic goal of making 
Gadaffi think there is a high 
degree of internal opposition 
to him within Libya, that his, 
key, trusted aides are disloyal,

Quoting further from _ the

“a series of closely coi 
ordinaied events involving 
covert diplomatic, militeiy- 
and public action." 

However. US military offi- 
cers expressed serious reserva- 
tions about the plan, which 
they feared would backfire. 

The accusations against 
Libya were false. US intelli- 
gence officials had concluded 
in August that Colonel 
Gadaffi was “quiescent" on 
the terrorist front.

IS-T’- 


From Zoriana Pysariwsky, New York 


Mr Georee Shultz, the US 
Secretary of State, has criti- 
cized the Soviet Union for 
failing to act more forcefully 
to stem the supply of arms to 
Iran, despite a US-Soviet un- 
derstanding that an Iranian 
victory in the Gulf War would 
upset the military balance and 
change the political landscape 
zhere beyond recognition. 

His remarks, to a gathering 
of foreign ministers represent- 
ing the six-member Gulf Go- 
operation Council, made it 
clear that the US was in the 
vanguard of efforts to halt the 
flow of arms to Tehran. 

It was also seen as a signal 
that the Reagan Administra- 
tion's wavering stand of stria 
neutrality had given way to 
sympathy for Iraq, which has 
entered the moderate Arab 
camp. Observers pointed out 
that Mr Shultz made no 
mention of interfering with 
the arms flow to Iraq. 


Iran receives a large propor- 
tion of its Soviet-made arms 
through Syria and Libya, with 
about one-fifth emanating di- 
rectly from eastern Europe. 

Mr Shultz also sought to 
strike at the inroads Moscow 
has made in the Gulf, resulting 
in the establishment of dip- 
lomatic relations with Oman 
and Kuwaiti 

The Secretary of Slate said 
recent discussions in Stock- 
holm and Washington had 
shown that the US and the 
Soviet Union had a mutual 
interest in seeing the conflia 
end. But the Russians had 


been too lenient with coun- 
tries under their sphere of 
influence. 

A senior Administration of- 
ficial later revealed that for 
more than a year the US has' 
been encouraging Moscow to 
prevent ■ its clients fit®,

separate meeting with, the 
Iraqi Foreign Minister. Mr 
Tariq Aziz, Mr Shultz gave 
assurances that the Admin- 
istration was doing its utmost 
to deplete Iran's military

The official said that this:

Iran have been surrounded by 
innuendo, despite Israeli : 
claims that its arras sales to:: 
Iran ceased in 1983. .

Tunis (AFP) — A Tunis i 
court yesterday convicted Mr 
Muhammad Mzali. the for- 
mer Prime Minister, of il- 
legally leaving the country and 
condemned him in absentia to 
a year in prison. 

The court also handed 
down prison terms ranging 
from six months to a year for 
seven people accused of help- 
ing Mr Mzali to slip secretly 
into Algeria on September 3. 
Mr Mzali is currently in 
Switzerland. 

Sources there said on 
Wednesday that Tunisia had 
requested Mr Mzali’s extra- 
dition. The Government in. 
Bern confirmed that it had 
received a message from Tu- 
nis. but would not reveal its 
contents. Tunisia's ambas- 
sador to. . Switzerland was 
quoted as saying that Mr 
Mzali was also wanted for 
corruption.

security would be a problem 
for the Soviet delegation.

smuggled to West 

From John En g la nd , Frankfurt 


Bush hope for dramatic 
progress in Reykjavik 


The memoirs of Dr Andrei 
Sakharov, the exiled Soviet 
dissident, have been smuggled 
to the West for publication, 
Mr Efrem Yankelevkh, his 
son-in-law, said here 
yesterday. 

He was notable to say when 
. the book would be published, 
but described it as a “big book 
that req uir es considerable 
editing”. Nor was be prepared 
to say bow the hand-written 
manuscript had reached the 
West. 

“It came oat in several parts 
over a number of years,” he 
said. “More I cannot say.” 

Mr Yankdevicfa said the 
manuscript, begun in 1979, 
was completed in 1983. Dr 
Sakharov had then written to 
him saying he would like it 
published. 

“Farts of the manuscript 


were repeatedly stolen or con- 
fiscated by the KGB. In 1981, 
for example, while sitting in 
his car. Dr Sakharov was at- 
tacked and stunned by chemic- 
als. Then the car window was 
smashed and a bag containing 
manuscript, diaries and per- 
sonal papers was stolen.” 

Mr Yankelevich said Dr 
Sakharov had commented: 
“the KGB's action compels me 
to publish the memoirs sooner 
than 1 originally intended.” 

' The publication announce- 
ment was made at a press 
conference in an hotel near the 
Frankfort Book Fair, which . 
was held ostensibly to talk 
about memoirs by Yelena Bon- 
ner, Dr Sakharov's second 
wife. She describes her book. 
Alone Together ; to be pub- 
lished on October 17, as a 
“postscript to Andrei's mem- 
oks”. 


From Michael Blnyon, Washington 

Vice-President George Bush ognize that the main thrust of 

the two-day talks will be on 
arms control. This is certainly 
what Mr Mikhail Gorbachov, 
ibe Soviet leader, wants to 
discuss in order to be able to 
justify going to Washington 
later to his critics at home. 


said ihere could be “dramatic 
progress” in arms control at 
the forthcoming preparatory 
summit in Reykjavik. 

In an interview published in 
USA Today yesterday, he said 
he expected to make dramatic 
progress in controlling inter- 
mediate missiles in Europe 
and strategic and chemical 
weapons. 

Mr Bush called the meeting 
a “good step,” but repeated 
the Administration's nervous 
protestations that it did not 
come as a result of either side 
giving in. “Everyone wants to 
know who's won and who's 
lost, but it should not be 
viewed that way.” 

Although the Administra- 
tion wants to raise a range of 
issues in Iceland, including 
human rights and regional 
conflicts, officials here rec- 


Washington hopes that the 
talks will spur arms control 
agreement at the full-scale 
summit One main aim is to 
set a date for this, which in 
itself would put pressure on 
negotiators in Geneva to 
make progress. 

The White House is hoping 
that the fixing of a summit and 
preliminary agreement on 
reducing nuclear missiles in 
Europe will give a strong boost 
to President Reagan and to 
Republican candidates in the 
mid-term congressional elec- 
tions next month. 


From John Best 
Ottawa 

A tantalizing hint by Mr 
Eduard Shevardnadze, the 
Soviet Foreign Minister, that 
the Soviet Union may be 
looking for ways to resolve the 
Afghanistan problem was 
much in play yesterday as he 
went into the second day of a 
two-day visit to Ottawa. 

At a dinner on Wednesday 
nightMr Shevardnadze con- 
firmed that nuclear arms con- 
trol would be the leading topic 
when President Reagan meets 
Mr Mikhail Gorbachov next 
week in Iceland. 

But he added that it was 
entirety possible other urgent 
problems would be discussed, 
“including the problem 
around Afghanistan”. 

Mr Shevardnadze said the 
Soviet Union, more than any- 
one else, had an interest in the 
resolution of that problem. 

“But not everything de- 
pends on us. A lot depends on 
your great neighbour, and 
please give them good 
advice.” he added. 

It was assumed he was 
referring to the United Suites' 
supply of weapons to the 
Muslim guerrillas fighting the 
Soviet army which invaded 
.Afghanistan at Christmas 
1979. 

Mr Shevardnadze gave no 
indication of the terms on 
which Moscow might be pre- 
pared to withdraw us troops,* 
and it was not immediately 
dear that he was opening up 
any new ground for 
negotiations. 

In the past the Kremlin has. 
insisted that prior cessation of 
outside help for the guerrillas 
was a condition of a Soviet 
pull-out. 

Mr Shevardnadze was opti- 
mistic about prospects for the 
Iceland summit 

“Today, despite ail diffi- 
culties and problems, objec- 
tively the possibility has 
emerged to reach progress in 
this key component of secu- 
rity.” 


UK-Russia

From Onr Own 
Correspondent . 

.•Moscpw ;; : 7 .,V’.- 

Anglo-Soviet relations im~ 
provediiirther this week when 
British and Soviet scientists 
signed a joint space research 
protocol which could lead to 
the launching of an unmanned 
satellite by the 1990s. 

A British Embassy spokes- 
man said yesterday that the 
document was signed by lead- 
ers of the Soviet Institute for 
Space Studies and the British 
National Space Centre. Pos- 
sible areas of joint research 
include astrophysics, space 
medicine and biology, studies 
of space materials and radio 
astronomy. 

Under the protocol, a space 
probe, which will be put into 
orbit by the Soviet Union in 
1987, will carry an X-ray 
telescope designed with the 
help of researcher s fro m Bir- 
mingham University. The 
Netherlands and .West Ger- 
many will also be inv olved in 
the project, named Roentgen. 

At the signing ceremony, 
Mr Roald Sagdeyev. director 
of the Soviet Institute for 
Space Studies, said; “I think 
that the experience to be 
accumulated during this joint 
work will help to coordinate 
our further efforts. Space, m 
many respects, is a unique 
research laboratory.” 

A British parliamentary 
delegation to the Soviet Union

ility of sending a Briton into

magazine profile of Mr Jan 
Christiaan Heunis, the new 
Chpe leader of the ruling 
National Party (NP), bore the 
punning headline “His Royal 
Heunis”. 

This was a jibe at his 
ambition to win the race to 
succeed President Botha, and 
at the bureaucratic empire he 
has built up as Minister of 
Constitutional Development 
and Planning. 

Born in Uniondale in the 
Eastern Cape on April 20, 
1927, he was one of five 
children of teacher parents. 

He earned a law degree ax 
the University of Stellenbosch 
and was active in student 
politics. He practised as a 
lawyer in the coastal town of 
George, and in 1959 became 
its member on the Cape 
Provincial Council. He was 
elected to Parliament in 1970 
as the Member for False Bay 


(now Helderberg), near Cape 
Town. 

In 1982 Mr Heunis was 
appointed to his present po- 
sition, which gave him a say in 
all aspects of government. 

The Cape leadership pots 
him in a much stronger po- 
sition to contest the eventual 
succession to Mr Botha with 



Mr Jan Heunis 


the Minister of National 
Education and conservative 
Transvaal leader of the NP, 
Mr F. W. de Klerk. 

Mi;, Heunis bdongs^to tbe 
Cape Afrikaner tradition of 
enlightened paternatism. “I 
am trying to get black people 
to learn the processes of de- 
mocracy. Then we can take 
the next step,” he has said. 

This is not the sort of ap- 
proach which cuts much ice 
with the present generation of 
radical young Macks, but be is 
credited with having been the 
driving force behind the aboli- 
tion of the pass laws, the 
scrapping of the ban on mixed 
marriages and the establish- 
ment of tbe tri-cameral 
Parliament 

A master of the new lan- 
guage of “Botha-speak", with 
its liberal-sounding talk of 
“broadening democracy” and 
“power-sharing”, Mr Heunis 
remains as wedded as his 
mentor to the principle of 
separate political structures 
for the different race groups. 


Nato planners work on 
redeploying missiles 


From Frederick Bonnart, Brussels 

The redistribution of 100 meeting of Nato's 
Pershing 2 and cruise missiles 


destined to remain m Europe 
after the proposed arms con- 
trol agreement on medium- 
range missiles, which may be 
discussed at the Reykjavik 
meeting, is now being {damned 
at Nato. 

Senior defence officials 
from Nato capitals, meeting in 
Brussels on Wednesday, are 
proposing a split of 28 Per- 
shings and 72 cruise missiles. 

Mr Richard Perie, the US 
Assistant Secretary of De- 
fence, insisted that most rig- 
orous verification measures 
be included, a Nato official 
said. 

Any agreement on inter- 
mediate range missiles would 
have to include provisions for 
inspection not only of deploy- 
ment sites but also of produc- 
tion facilities, as the small 
missiles could be easily 
hidden. 

The plan will be submitted 
to ministers of defence ax the 


nuclear 
planning group at Gleneagles 
on October 20-21, which will 
also have to deal with the 
tricky question of targeting the 
new weapons. 

The deployment of inter- 
mediate range missiles in 
Europe has meant that, for the 
first time, Nato as an 
organization is able to make 
nudear strikes on tbe territory 
of the Soviet Union. Pre- 
viously, this capability had 
been exclusively in the hands 
of the nuclear powers, the 
United States. Britain and 
France, which have strategic 
missiles. 

Tactical nudear weapons, 
deployed by Nato units in 
West Germany, do not have 
the necessary range. 

Under Nato roles military 
commanders can fire nudear 
weapons only once a release is 
given by all member states in 
tbe integrated military 
structure.

The indictment, by a grand 
jury in the State ’Supreme 
Court in the borough of

yers involved in the investiga- 
tion said that Mr Zaccaro was 
charged, among other things, 
with having solicited a SI 
million payment in return for 
his influence.

Prophecy fuels new fears of Mitterrand 
terror during Pope’s visit 


The Pope arrives in Lyons 
tomorrow at the start of a four- 
day visit, amid considerable 
anxiety over the possible 
resumption of terrorist attacks 
in France. 

These fears have been fur- 
ther aggravated by talk of a 
16th century prophecy about 
the violent death of a Pope 
near the town “where the 
Saone and the Rhtae meet”: 

An immense security opera- 
tion has been mounted, with 
10,000 police and nine bomb 
disposal teams on duty 
throughout the visit. Every 
inch of the 26-mfle route along 
which the Pope will travel in a

proof “Popemobile” has been

bishop of Lyons, insists that 
he is totally satisfied with 
security, and has called on his 
flock not to be inflnenced by 
ramoored prophecies which, in 
his opinion, “have absolutely 
no value”. 

He was ■nwHng to a mneh-

mer, who wrote in 1555:

“When tbe rose blooms” 
has been interpreted as mean-

emblem is the rose, are in 
power, and although the right 
is now in government, France 
still has aSodofist President. 

“FoT has been variously 
taken to refer to a Pope named 
Paul, or to a Polish Pope. 

Those who take such proph- 
ecies seriously nevertheless 
take comfort from tbe fact that 
the evil is supposed to come 
“on the day of Lode”, taken to 
mean the feast day of Saint 
Lacy, which falls on December 
13. 

A poll, specially commis- 
sioned by Le Monde for the 
visit, showed that akho^h an

ordination of women. 

After being met by Presi- 
dent Mitterrand at Satolas 
Airport, outside Lyons, tomor- 
row morning, the Pope will go 
to tbe “Amphitheatre of the 
Three Gaols” where some of 
the first Christian martyrs in 
France were kiDed by the 
Romans in 177 AD. -

Garland Stadium in Lyons. 


Paris — President Mitterr- 
and of France finally an- 
nounced yesterday that be 
would not sign the Gov- 
ernment's decree on redraw- 
ing constitutency boundaries. 
But his decision is not thought 
likely to lead to a constitu- 
tional crisis, as was at one time 
feared (Diana Geddes writes). 

The controversial decree 
was presented for his signature 
on September 24. The Presi- 
dent appeared to lace an 
impossible dilemma: if be 
signed, be would have been 
seen to be approving the 
Government’s choice of new 
constituency boundaries 
which had been so criticized 
by the left. 

If he declined to sign, he 
would have been seen to be 
provoking a confrontation 
with the Government, leading 
to a possible constitutional 
crisis, at precisely the time 
when national unity was most 
needed in the lace of the wave 
of terrorist attacks. 

With characteristic political 
skill, he threw the ball neatly 
back into the Government's 
court by postponing his de- 
cision. because he did not 
think it wise to arouse such 
controversies when France 
had so much more important 
matters to tackle. 

It is evident howewver. 
that neither side wants to 
provoke a head-on clash. The 
Government has immediately 
announced that it will simply 
submit the decree to Par- 
liament in the form of a Bill. 

A guillotine procedure will 
almost certainly be used to 
stifle debate. * 

A Sofr£s poll due to be 
published tomorrow, shows 
confidence in M Mitterrand 
rising by 6 per cent to 61 per 
cent, and in M Jacques Chirac, 
the Prime Minister, climbing 
by 12 points to 58 per cent.

Worldwide search for friends 

Managua signs 
$ 250 m aid pact 
with Moscow 

From Alan Tomlinson, Managua 


Nicaragua bas signed an 
economic co-operation agree- 
ment with the Soviet Union, 
thought to be worth about 
$250 million (£1 73 million). 

. The Government also con- 
cluded agreements recently 

with India and China, as part ■ 
Of a wide-ranging search for 
friends willing to help the 
country's ravaged economy. 

No details of the aid pack- 
age were supplied, and Presi- 
dent Ortega said only that the 
Soviet delegation, headed by 
the Deputy Economic Plan- 
ning Minister, Mr Nikolai 
Lebedinski, “is not a secret 
mission, nor has it come to 
install missiles in Nicaragua; 
it has come to make a humani- 
tarian contribution.'' 

! Thai aid last year is believed 
to have been worth S247 
million and to have satisfied 
27 per cent of Nicaragua's 
import needs. The biggest 
single item provided was oil — 
more than 300.000 tons an- 
nually, according to a shipping 
expert, on terms understood 
to amount to a free donation. 

Soviet economic assistance 
last year was more than three 
limes greater than military 
aid. With Nicaragua's eco- 
nomic plight steadily worsen- 
ing. this year’s aid is unlikely 
to be considerably less. 

In terms of direct help, the 
Soviet Union, Cuba and East- 
ern European countries oc- 
cupy the top 10 places in 
Nicaragua's league of friends. 


but in terms of commercial 
relations, 60 per cent of 
Nicaragua’s trade is with non- 
socialist nations. 

France, . Spain, Mexico, 
Argentina and Japan each 
exported more than $30 mil- 
lion of goods to Nicaragua Iasi 
year, as did Cuba and Bulgaria 
— all of them on highly 
favourable terms, given Man- 
agua's extremely limited cap- 
acity to pay for what it gets. 

Its exports this year are not 
expected to exceed $230 mil- 
lion; imports will be nearly 
four times greater. 

The Foreign Trade Ministry 
has estimated that the United 
States embargo, imposed in 
May I98S, cost Nicaragua 
$108 million in the first 12 
months. 

In addition, the US-backed 
Contras in five years have cost 
the country $1.5 billion in 
wrecked infrastructure and 
lost production, according to 
government estimates. 

“These are conservative fig- 
ures and if we add the 
distorting effect of all this on 
our economy it is much 
more," said die Foreign Trade 
Minister, Dr Alqandro Marti- 
nez Cuenca. 

President Ortega returned 
last month from c hina with a 
$20 million line of credit. He 
received another $10 million 
credit from the Indian Gov- 
ernment, plus $20 million on a 
short term basis from the 
Indian private sector.

Four Iran 
athletes 
disappear 
in Seoul 

Seoul (Reuter) — Four Ira- 
nian athletes who took part»n 
the Asian Games disappeared 

at Seoul airport shortly before 
their scheduled return home 
yesterday, police said- 
The disappearance of the 
four, all weightlifters, immedi- 
ately farmed speculation that 
they might be seeking asylum. 

A police spokesman said 53 
Iranian athletes and officials, 
were due to leave yesterday 
morning, but the four broke 
away from the group after 
checking in for a Korean 
Airlines flight to Tokyo. 

“The four disappeared be- 
fore pa s sin g through immigra- 
tion checkpoints. We have no 
information as to why they 
did," he said, addingthat the 
remaining 49 left for Tokyo as 
scheduled. Seventy-two Ira- 
nian athl etes and officials are 
still in Seoul for the games, 
which dose on Sunday. 

Iran maintains diplomatic 
links with Seoul, but relations 
are at a low ebb. Seoul has 
remained aloof from the Gulf j 
war, but athletes from Iraq, 
with which it has no official 

ties, are also taking part in the 

Asian Games.

dred students took up cudgels

bombs and bricks at some 400' ' 
riot police during an hour-

hundreds of sharks under a 
redevelopment plan for the 
games, eye-witnesses said.

Teller, the scientist who is 
known as “Father of the Am- 
erican H-bomb”, and a strong 
supporter of President Rea- 
gan’s Strategic Defence Initia- 
tive (SDI), said the Soviet 
Union was ahead of America 
in developing technology to 
defend its people against mis- 
sile attack (Monsin Ali writes). 

Dr TeOer said on Wednes- 
day that the Soviet Union had 
worked for 20 years to defend 
its people from attack, and 
there was good reason to be- 
lieve that it was succeeding. 

He said the Soviet Union 
had developed the SA 12 sur- 
face-to-air missile, which had 
some Capability against mis- 
siles. and that it was advocat- 
ing a ban on nuclear testing 
because it had discovered 
things on which tt wanted to 
keep a possible monopoly.

Hundreds of cars crowding the ferry jetties on the Golden 
Horn, beneath the minarets of old IstanbuL 


Istanbul is getting a 
spectacular facelift, designed 
to make *hfc bartered but 
glorious metropolis, so rich in 
history and tradition, habit- 
able again for its six million 
residents. 

The improvements are quite 
conspicuous, from the city's 
new computerized airport to 
the parks spr ou t in g where 
shuns once stood. And if the 
waters of the Golden Horn are 
not yet as the Mayor, Mr 
Bedrettin Dafaut, had prom- 
ised, as bine as Us eyes, at 
least they have lost the murky 
irridescence that betrays ad- 
vanced chemical pofintiOB. 

Perhaps the Mayor's most 
ambitions project in this £ 1-2 

billion facelift is the reclama- 
tion of the Golden Horn, the 
narrow, five-mile-loag inlet of 
the Bosporus which was once 
lined with palaces, monuments 
and ganienc, but eventually 
became the city's open 
cesspooL 

The energetic Major gave 
the owners of the waterway's 
4,000 buildings two years to 
dear out. Then his bulldozers 
moved in. 

Today the south bank of the 
Golden Horn is a green belt of 
parks, playgrounds and jetties 
for pleasure-boats, while on 
the northern side a few fac- 
tories, including the municipal 
slaughterhouse, await demo- 
lition. Some 600 homes were 
pulled down and their res- 
idents offered alternative 
dwellings. 

But Mr Dalan's critics

For the first time these 
shores, where the waterfront 
villas of the rich left no access 
to the sea. will become acces- 
sible to all when a British- 
designed earthfill quay some 
200 yards wide is competed. 

Over-population, of course, 
is at the root of Istanbul's 
troubles. After 1950, the city's 
population grew at the rate of 
4.2 per cent a year. Inevitably, 
ugly shantytowns soon girdled 
the city. 

"Everything is concentrated 
m the old city,” the Mayor 
explained. “Some 2.5 million 


people work there every day. 
At night there are only 19,000 
residents.” 

So he set about reorganizing 
the city's transport system, 
using a combination of a high- 
speed tramline now on order, 
520 new buses and 10 450- 
seater sea- buses which will 
enable commuters to travel, 
without going into town.

"Now that they feel secure,”

improve their environment. 
The problem will take care of 
itself in less than 20 years.”

SPECTRUM 






In a calculated move 


Part 4: Behind dosed doors 


The Chinese are fond of the 
cliched claim that their Wall is the 
one man-made object that can be 
seen from the moon. It was, 
indeed, a prodigious feat- But they 
are less likely to tell you that their 
greatest protection against the 
outside world is provided by a 
barrier you cannot see when 
standing even a angle pace away. 

They have a term for it. "Nei- 
bu ” Literally, it means "internal”. 
A wider, nan-dictionary inter- 
pretation is “behind closed 
doors”. What is untranslatable is 
that nei-bu is a many-layered 
complex of cultural imperatives 
that create an individual and 
national privacy to which no visa, 
and no friendship, will ever admit 
you. 

It is based on the belief that 
they, the Chinese, are unique and 
have a quality of separateness 
which they preserve in the cer- 
tainty that it has preserved them. 
H is manifest in a gently adroit 
deflection of all conversational 
approaches that seek to reach the 
core of their thinking, a skill in 
manipulating events, from not 
finding a crucial taxi to ignoring a 
signed agreement. And if this does 
not work they take final refuge in a 
studied, brazen incomprehension. 

This continues even now that 
China is ablaze with a new western 
consumerism, is host to armies of 
tourists with cameras, curiosity 
snapping, and is sending its own 

Their only protection, 
against oppression 
has been anonymity 


envoys abroad begpng for advice 
and contacts. Indeed, especially 
now, because like a non-swimmer 
chest-high in a hostile sea, the 
Chinese have felt the powerful 
undersurge of our interest, and arc 
back-paddling towards safer 
waters. 

A warning of this came from a 
westerner who has lived 10 years 
in China and is fluent in the 
language: “Chinese lie. All Chi- 
nese. All the time. There is no 
moral implication in this. For all 
their history they have been 
oppressed: so their only protection 
has been in abasement, anonym- 
ity. To tell anyone anything — not 
only foreigners, but another Chi- 
nese — might be dangerous, so why 
do it? Keeping to yourself - your 
name, your address, your opinions 
— might save your skin. 

“A woman from the east of 


Peking standing in a queue might 
chat to a neighbour and be asked 
‘where are you’. In other words, 
where do you live. She'd answer 
‘from the west'. It would be a 
natural, unquestioned reaction. 
The woman who bad asked the 
question wouldn't mind; she 
hadn't expected the truth. Yes, it 
takes some understanding.” 

What did ordinary Chinese feel 
about the overwhelming change in 
their lives made by a decade of 
Deng Xioping's pragmatic, mini- 
market economy? It ought to be a 
story they would delight in telling: 
never has so much been done for 
so many by a sudden tolerating 
nod from so few. But within days 
we were braised and un- 
comprehending after encounters 
with nei-bu. 

We wanted to be taken to a 
small country settlement, typical 
of those affected by rural reform. 
No problem, they said. So they 
took us to a “village” of 49,000 
people, owners of 60 small fac- 
tories with an income last year of 
J50 million. It even boasted of its 
achievements with a full-colour 
brochure. In English. And THIS 
was a typical,, randomly-chosen 
village? Of course. That is nei-bu. 

Fine, so now let us talk to one of 
the workers. Sadly they were all at 
lunch. All of them — even those 
seen dimly at the end of a long row 
of cabbages? Oh those? No, they 
were on another commune’s land. 
So why didn't we stop by at a 
randomly-selected house, find 
someone at their lunch? No 
problem. 

Into a three-room home of 
simple, pleasant design, domi- 
nated by a large refrigerator, 23- 
inch remote-controlled TV, and a 
sideboard containing bottles of 
wine. So THIS was a typical 
peasant house? Absolutely. No 
question. And 10 minutes later a 
chat with the daughter of the 
house (translated by an unembar- 
rassed guide) revealed that this 
Typical peasant’ was a factory 
director with an income of 6,000 
yuan — in British terms, a £40,000- 
a-year man. More nei-bu. 

Next day it was the army's turn. 
We would like to meet a typical 
soldier, find out his hopes and 
fears for his motherland. No 
problem. So we were taken to the 
defence college, shown class- 
rooms where 600 young officers 
could watch tactical wall-maps 
and are watched in turn by closed- 
circuit TV. Fine, could we now 
meet a young officer or two? 

Sadly, they were all in classes. 
Or absent We offered to waiL 
Alas, there was no telling how long 




the classes would last hours, even 
days, once they get talking. In the 
end, a shade rudely, we had to 
elbow past our guide, to find our 
own interviewee -*• a young 
lieuteuabt trapped in the library 
Who is probably still wondering 
whether she played it by the nei-bu 
manual when suddenly outflanked 
by this Mark VI Foreigner. 

We said we would tike to visit a 
hospital They were all busy. 


Attend a People's Conn. They 
were all shut Then a typical 
factory, making typical goods to 
talk to a typical worker. We went 
instead to China's prize clothing 
factory where they made Lanvin 
shirts for Paris and Germany, and 
met a typical worker who said her 
only ambition in life was to 
“improve quality control”. 

Things were easier, much, in 
Shanghai away from the stifling 


Warm welcome; China gets ready for die Queen's visit this month 


presence of Peking authority. 
Even so a lively discussion in a 
fashion house touching on mod- 
ern styles (Shanghai is the city 
where three years ago puritan 
mobs ran through the streets 
breaking high heels off girls’ shoes) 
ended when a small quieL man in 
the corner suddenly barked: 
“China will remain true to her 
cultural values”: every other eye 
went down, suddenly no one knew 
any more what was ever meant by 
the term “modern styling”. 

In a Shanghai dancehallwewere 
watching teenagers mildly disport. 
A large, thick-set man with a 
forbidding free and eyes that had 
not blinked since the Long March 
hovered behind me as I miked to 
the manager. Who was he? “Just a 
customer". What was he doing? 
“Looking for a partner” This 
absurd fiction was maintained 
even when the Mao-suited senti- 
nel pulled up a chair and sat so 
dose his knees were between the 
chairs on which the manager and I 
were talking. This example of nei- 
bu was designed to make sure that 
if there was to be indiscreet 
mingling between the foreigners 
and the young it was not going to 
happen inside where the manager 
might be blamed. 

Much of this shadow-dancing 
might be attributed to mere petty

while then: "Bu-ching chu mean-

patent absurdity of the response

the Chinese content. 

My own best example is as 
bizarre. I talked for an hour with a 
young Chinese businesswoman, 
whose grasp of English was su-

China was appealing. 

Throughout the conversation 
her husband sat with . an un-

English. But he spoke quite good 
English, a friend said. Then

spoke English into his secret, thus 
giving himself an advantage.” But

The zoology man 


Richard DawJcins has updated 
evolution. “If yon want to 
understand life,” he says, 
“think about information tech- 
nology, not throbbing gel.” 

His book The Blind Watch- 
maker, explaining Darwin for 
the computer age, was pub- 
lished this week (by Longman, 
price £12.95), and readers of 
the zoologist’s best-known 
work, The Selfish Gene, will 
not be misled by the appar- 
ently prosaic talk of data bases 
and floppy discs. For 
Dawkins, a 45-year-old Ox- 
ford University lecturer, is a 
past master of the art of 
injecting romance and mystery 
into biological theory. His 
snbject is nothing less than the 
Meaning of Life, and he 
attacks it with the evangelical 
fervour of a clergyman and the 
mind of a scientist. 

An enthusiast in the best 
eccentric academic tradition. 
Dr Dawkins experiments with 


Darwinist: Richard Dawkins 

his computer the way other 
men tinker with their cars. For 
his new book, for example, he 
roped in his small daughter, 
now aged two, as a human

was to demonstrate the 
possibility of producing a 
Shakespearean phrase from 
the apparent gibberish typed

A Fellow of New College, 
Oxford, Dawkins sees com- 
puter jargon as a convenient 
“Trojan horse” for getting 
biology across to a wider 
audience. And be takes a 
schoolboy's delight in statis- 
tics. For example, a cell 
nudens contains a database 
larger in information content 
than all 30 volumes of the 

Encyclopaedia Britanruea. Eat 
a steak and yoo are shredding 
the equivalent of 100 billkm- 
plns copies of the 
encyclopaedia. 

Infomania is evident 
throughout The Blind Watch- 
maker, an extended polemic 
for Darwinism which takes its 
cne from a famous treatise by 
the 19th century theologian 
William Paley. Where P&ley 
saw nature as the product of a 
conscious designer — like the 
man-made watch — Dawkins 
emphasizes the unconscious, 
automatic processes of natural 
selection: the "blind 

watchmaker” of his tide. Bnt 
he fully shares Paley's awe at 
the complexity of life, even if 
be caonot believe in bis God. 

“My early interest in evolu- 
tion was really as a sort of 
alternative to religion, and an 
explanation for the way things 
are.” be says.“As a child. I 
couldn't believe in Darwin. 
Natural selection seemed such 
a negative force. I didn't think 
it amid produce anything as 
wonderful as a flower or an 
ear. Bnt as a teenager I 
became fascinated by evolu- 
tion as an explanation for the 
kind of question Which has 
historically been answered in 
religious terms.

ers. I started with a curiosity

the wife played along? “That's nd-y 
hit They were in on something: 
that excluded you.” 

And a final classic example 
from a classic source. Speaking, 
with Kong Fan Ping, 76th in direct 
line from his ancestor Confucius, I 
raised the matter of nei-bu. “Oh 
no. that's past. I think we are more ■ 
open now,” he said. Then net-bu. 
was dead? “Well, yes...” A beatific, 
smile “But not exactly 

We ought to be. indeed must be. 
impressed by China’s Short March 
to the brink of a new hopeful life 
for their masses. We should 
applaud the lowering of the 
threshold of suspicion and by all 
means try to profit from it. But we'

conceit of imagining we arc en-‘"

and heads of state. China basr

I will long remain haunted by a 
late-night remark from a young 1- 
politician grown wise in a long 
stint in Peking: “What you learn 
to deal with here is not the 
paranoid suspicion of a KGB, but 
an innate, excluding self-regard of. 
a different species. Being hurt by: . 
their lack of openness, I have- 
learnt to tell myself, is like a • 
mouse coming out of the skirting

becoming peeved when we didn’t , 
take up his offer to be close;

! . Tbe question of sex ednea- 
! trpnm schools will be raised in 
i ^Lament this month when 

i St^tSSP 00 m “ debated. 

J TJf Bill was intended to 
i address the matter of school 
venunent, but a clause on 
“ education was forced on 
Government by pressure 
m the “moral right” in the 
use of Lords. 

It calls for local authorities, 
veming bodies and schools 
take steps to ensure that sex 
“cation is given in such a 
inner as to encourage pupils 
have due regard to moral 
nsi derations and the value 
family life 

If the Government hoped 
' this would put an end to 
debate about sex educa- 
tion it was hopelessly wrong. 
{Those in favour of sex educa- 
tion feel there is no need to 
legislate, particularly as the 
Department of Education has 
already issued a draft circular 
setting out how the Govern- 
ment expects schools to tackle 
(the subject Those against it 
see the circular as tantamount 
to a subversive document 
making sex education com- 
pulsory, and are campaigning 
for the Education Bill to 
include a clause giving parents 
the right to excuse children 
fromiessons. * 

The new Education Min- 
ister Angela Rumbold-sees the

well and sensibly. Only when 
you get extreme examples do 
people start to use it as a baas 
for making grand statements. 

“That doesn’t make it any 
easier for me to steer the right 
course. I think it is important 
that O level biology deals with 
human reproduction, but I am 
less convinced that it is nec- 
essary at any point in a general 
studies course to have explicit 
lessons about perversions or 
single sex relationships which 
are not the norm.** 

So should parents have the 
right to take their children out 
of sex education lessons? “My 
personal view must not come 
into it. You most take into 
account the feasibility of any* 
thing we decide as far as the 
professsional teacher is 
concerned.” 

Sex education in British 
schools started on a rather ad 
hoc basis in the 1960s. Often it 
consisted of little more than a 
lesson about human reproduc- 
tion. Later, some schools in- 
cluded lessons covering topics 
such as contraception and 
sexually transmitted diseases. 

ccording to Joyce 
Rosser, . deputy 
Director of Educa- 
■ tion . ax the Family . 
Planning Association, “In the 
past 10 years there has been a 
much more committed -ap- 
proach. But there is no na- 
tional pattern. What is taught, 
and by whom, varies from 


area to area and school to 
school. 

“At present the only legal 
requirement is that schools 
with a sex education policy tell 
paresis what it is. But details 
of how it is taught or the 
materials used are unlikely to 
be given." 

Joyce Rosser sees the draft 
circular and other recent 
publications relating to sex 
education — such as the 
Department's Sex Education 
at School and the Inspector’s 
report Health Education 5 to 


16 — as being “in many ways 
courageous”, because they say 
that schools should deal with 
controversial issues like Aids 
and abortion. She recognizes 
that there are difficulties in 
teaching such subjects in ways 
which “recognize the mul- 
tiplicity of moral attitudes,” 
but adds: “What is so annoy- 
ing about the group hostile to 
sex education is that it is a 
small minority. Vast numbers 
of parents want schools to talk 
about sex education." 

This is a claim that the anti- 




sex education lobby hotly 
denies, of course. Peter 
Bnrinvels, MP for Leicester 
East, says that hundreds of 
parents are on his side — and 
be has the letters to prove il 

He says there is no need for 
sex education in schools. 
“You get the biological facts 
anyway, and religious educa- 
tion can give you the moral 
view. There is no need for 
prejudices to be put forward 
by teachers, some of whom are 
not necessarily supportive of 
the family unit. There is a 
danger that homosexual 
teachers might encourage chil- 
dren to believe that homo- 
sexuality is normal. 

[*Sex education is a very 
private matter between parent 
and child. Religious education 
promotes the family unit Sex 
education promotes experi- 
mentation. What the circular 
means is that all state schools 
wilt in effect, have to have sex 
education on the curriculum. 
It will mean one sex education 
lesson a week. The children 
won’t talk about sex to their 
parents, they’ll be talking 
about it behind the bike 
sheds.” 

Whether children would 
talk about sex behind the bike 
sheds any more than they 
have jn the past is a moot 
point As for once-a-week 
compulsory sex education, 
this seems unlikely. The DES 
points out that the circular 
does not insist that schools 


teach education in any 
particular fashion — in fact, 
schools could go on covering 
the relevant topics in biology 
and religious education classes 
if they wished, provided they 
had some kind of policy and 
kept parents fully informed. 

The topics covered at 
present can be amazingly var- 
ied. Taught Sot Caught is just 
one of a number of resource 
books available for teachers. It 
not only includes suggestions 
for tackling subjects such as 
contraception, reproduction 
and other related subjects, but 
also raises broader issues such 
as communication skills, de- 
cision-making, relationships 
and self-image. 

Perhaps the sticking point 
for many of those opposra to 
sex education in schools 
comes in a section of the 
circular that says “the aim of 
any programme of sex educa- 
tion should be to present the 
frets in an objective and 
balanced manner and to en- 
able pupils to understand the 
values and other factors which 
influence attitudes and behav- 
iour in our society. To form 
their own opinions and to 
make informed reasoned and 
responsible choices both while 
they are at school and in 
adulthood”. 


I 


l can be argued that the 
best kind of sex education 
already does this. But 
although the circular talks 
about personal integrity, the 
significance of moral values 
and the value of family life, 
nowhere does it insist that 
children should be told, for 
example, that sex before mar- 
riage is wrong or that homo- 
sexuality is abnormal. It 
suggests children should make 
up their own minds. 

This, it seems to me. is what 
the anti sex education move- 
ment find so subversive. Yet 
the sex education lobby argues 
that taking a particular moral 
stance on certain issues can be 
dangerous. 

So what is going to happen? 
With the replacement of Chris 
Patten by Angela Rumbold at 
the DES, it looks as if the tide 
is turning in favour of the 
“moral right” However, it 
seems unlikely that there will 
come a time when schools are 
prohibited from having sex 
education — in any guise — on 
the curriculum. But it is 
possible that a change in the 
climate could put a halt to 
efforts to improve the -stan- 
dards of sex education in 
schools. As a parent, I would 
view that as a hollow rather 
than a moral victory.

Carole Jackson’s book. Color 
Me Beautiful, has sold four 
million copies worldwide.— 
and the eponymous business 
it spawned now has outposts 
from Zimbabwe to the Canary 
Islands. The US parent com- 
pany clocks up S12 minion 
worth of spin-off sales each 
year and predictably, a host of 
look-alike firms have sprung 
up. eager to cash in on the 
realization that people are 
prepared to pay to be told in' 


which colours they look good 

Color Me Beautiful was 
brought to Britain three years 
ago by Harvard graduate 
Mary Spillane. There is now a 
network of 31 trained colour 
consultants in this country. 
But Spillane admits that the 
idea met with some initial 
scepticism. “The English 
woman seems to put every- 
thing else first The bouse, the 
husband the dog ... she feels 
guilty about spending money 
on herself” 

Central to the- whole busi- 
ness is the three-hour colour 
consultation, carried out in an 
atmosphere somewhere be- 
tween that of a Tupperware 
party and some strange re- 
ligious ritual. For an average 
fee of £35, each person is 
scrutinized draped in the 


colours of her correct 
“season” — derided by ref- 
erence to her complexion, eyes 
and hair — and issued with 
fabric swatches for use in her 
next dotbes-buying trip. 

Cynics suggest that the 
phenoraonal success of colour 
consulting in the US, where 
Color Me Beautiful has some 
300 licensed outlets, is be- 
cause it preys on the average 
American’s desire to conform 
and yet be “true” to 
themselves. 

But Brian DiAntonio, vice-- 
rident of Color Me Beauti- 
ienies playing on people's 
insecurities. “A lot of women 
have been slaves to the fash- 
ion industry,” he says. “We 
make them their own kind of 
clothing expert.” 

What image consultants are 


really selling is good old- 
fashioned moral support It 
touches the same chord as the 
Zucchini Bread served by 
New York Air to its commut- 
ing executives. Made by a firm 
called Love and Quiches, its 
listed ingredients include bak- 
ing soda, salt - and love. 

Color Me Beautiful is cer- 
tainly not immune to the 
charms of love as a market- 
able commodity. Its colour 
consultants are “hand- 
picked” with “loving care 
according to one of their 
American publicity brochures. 
And, it seems, the need for a 
loving — if costly — ego boost 
is not confined to adults. One 
American colour consultant 
recently offered advice to a 1 3- 
year-old boy keen to colour 
co-ordinate his wardrobe — for

The meaning 
of friendship: 
Libby Purves 
begins a three- 
part series 


MEDICAL BRIEFING 


The Gift 
of life 

The latest infertility treat- 
ment, Gamete Intra-FaHopian 
Transfer (Gift), could help 
thousands of women in cases 
of unexplained infertility. A 
pregnancy rate of more than 
30 per cent has been claimed 
for women treated nith Gift — 
a figure which compares very 
favourably with the success 
rate achieved by in rim 
fertilization. 

.As with IVF, women under- 
going Gift are given drags to 
stimulate egg development, 
and the eggs are removed from 
the ovaries just as they ripen. 
Unlike IVF. however, there is 
no 48-hour wait while eggs and 
sperm are mixed in a petri- 
dish and incubated until 
fertilization has occurred. In- 
stead. a simple operation is 
performed immediately in 
which eggs and sperm are 
deposited in the woman's 
fallopian tube (where fertiliza- 


tion would normally occur). 
Nature is then left to lake its 
course. 

The world's first successful 
Cift pregnancy reached term 
last year, with the birth of 
healthy twins to a woman 
treated at the University of 
Texas. It was one of the 
doctors behind that preg- 
nancy, Peng Chaeng Wong, 
now using Gift in Singapore, 
who impressed the Royal Col- 
iege of Obstetricians, and 
Gynaecologists last week with 
news of Gift's success. 

Dr Wong said that 74 of his 
patients had been offered Gift 
and 23 had become pregnant. 
Sadly, three had tost their 
babies, but a healthy infant 
had been born and 19 women 
were still expecting. 

He said Gift would not be 
suitable for women with 
blocked tubes, but in other 
women it had several advan- 
tages over IVF: it was less 
expensive and more acceptable 
on religious grounds. Indeed, 
in Singapore it had become 
“the preferred treatment” for 
women with healthy tubes. 



The Pill and breast cancer 

it seems untenable that after 25 years of the Pill 
we still do not know whether or not it causes 
breast cancer. Critics are correct in that some of 
me basic research that might have helped 
epidemiologists know just what to look lor has 
not been done. For example, no one knows the 
effect on breast tissue of the hormones 
contained in the Pill. But it could be that because cancers take 
years to develop, research has been unable to establish or re- 
fute a link until now. 

Evidence suggests that //the Pill does cause cancer it wiH 
be most likely to do so in those women who use the Pill for a 
long time, at a young age and before their first pregnancy. The 
problem for epidemiologists is that women in this group did 
not start taking the Pill all that long ago. As experts point out, 
single women in the UK did not start taking it until the early 
1970s. If there is a long “latent" pre-cancerous stage - of 15 
or 20 years, say — to breast cancer, any association might 
only now start to appear. 

Some experts fear that this may be why studies in the 
United States have failed to find such a link, while some stud- 
ies in the UK have found one. Young women in the US started 
taking the Pin, they say, five years later man those in the UK.

compound. The acid inhibfter 
Cimetidine, one of the groups 
of drugs most widely pre- 
scribed for ulcers, didn't 
appear to affect CP al all. 

it has implications for other 
aspects of medicine. Last year 
an outbreak of CP-associated 
gastritis was recorded in peo- 
ple who had volunteered to 
have their stomach looked at 
through an endoscope. 


Catching 

ulcers 




Evidence sug- 
gests that stom- 
ach ulcers are 
caused by a bac- 
teria — and 
could therefore' 


be infectious. 

Three years ago researchers at 
the Royal Perth Hospital in 
Western Australia, led by Dr 

Barry Marshall, found that OtTOKGS 3110 
people who had inflammation 


of the stomach lining (gastri- 
tis) often had curved rod- 
shaped bacteria in damaged 
areas. Since then the bacteria 
has been named — 
Campylobacter pyloridis (CP) 
— and it has been linked in 
several studies not only with 
inflammation but with frank 
ulceration of the stomach 
lining. 

In bis latest study Dr Mar- 
shall has demonstrated that 
those duodenal ulcers which 
fail to heal on treatment 
usually show evidence of CP 
infection. He has also shown 
that unless CP is totally 
cleared, even patients with 
healed ulcers are Liable to 
relapse. 

Dr Marshall found that CP 
was killed by treatment with

Ne3 Kinuock went to Black- 
pool resisting oil demands to 
appoint a Minister for 
women. He leaves Blackpool 
today having promised — if he 
becomes Pruitt Minister — to 
do just that. 

His commitment was made 
known through Miss Jo 
Richardson, his front-bench 
spokesman on women’s mat- 
ters, whom sister MPs nomi- 
nate as the first Women’s 
Minister. 

Was Mr Kianock wise? 
Older beads see trouble, not in 
the chauvinist sense, but with 
the machinery of government 
It is a weakness of Prime 
Mixristers-m-waiting to con- 
struct governments in the ak. 

Mrs Thatcher toyed briefly 
with a Department of the 
Family, hot the Idea was 
abandoned as unvkble. Would 
a Ministry for Women fore 
any better, or is it simply 
moving chairs in Whitehall? 

Before taking office Neil 
Khmock would be presented 
with a full prospectus for Ids 
new Ministry. The find draft 
is in a document recertify 
endorsed by Labour’s national 
executive committee, on the 
initiative of women activists. 
What is clear is that they are , 
set to become the first pressure ' 
group to penetrate' the 
Cabinet 

“The Minister for Women 
will have to effect change in 
every other department” the 
document states, adding that it 
will act like the Treasury does 
now in ensuring that its prior- 
ities are followed. Each 
department "wdnld set op n

The minister herself would 
be installed in the Cabinet 
Office, with fall access to the 
Prime' Minister next door. She 
would exert “widespread 
political influence** through a 
network of regional units. 

Miss Richardson's view is 
that “for the first time we can 
be absolutely sure we are going 
to have a Ministry for Women 
and that it will have some real 
power to make sure that what 
a Labour government does is 
truly reflective of women.”

Richardson is the MP for 
Barking and sits to the left of 
Kinnock, who does not always 
receive .her support on 
Labour's National Executive 
Commftte. Women's rights are 
only <me of the causes she 
champions in the area of civil 
liberties, and in this she seems 
al last to have found a measure 
of success which has eluded 
her attempts to mediate in the 
party split over black sections. 

So wfaat would be the end 
prod nets of the ministry her 
colleagues feel sure she would 
head? House designs fit for 
women and bases fit for shop- 
ping trolleys are two minor 
ideas. Flee play-schools is 
anothe*. More ambitious is 
extending equal pay to women 
part-timers and home work- 
ers, risking foe jobs of some, 
though special training 
schemes would compensate. 
Equality in taxation, social 
security, and pensions is un- 
objective, as are new rights for 
lesbians in child custody dis- 
putes. With grants to distrib- 
ute and bar .own question time 
in the Commons, the minister 
vrill be kept busy. 

Yet one wonders if Mr 
Kinnock really believes in ft. 
At heart he is a ragger-dob 
male and the despair of 
Gleaysj who has now weaned 
him off calling women “luv”. 
And he still backslides - as in 
his sexist attack on Edwina 
Currie in his conference 
speech. No male junior health 
minister would have merited 
such attention.

then its illusion about a 
corresponding American wish. 

Besides turning Gorbachov

gives the president a dub with 


A famous comedian of my youth. 
Will Hay, once made a film called 
Where's That Fire? in which he 
and his two sidekicks (Graham 
Moffat and Moore Marriott) ran a 
remote rural fire station. They 
decided that it needed moderniz- 
ing. and the first new piece of 
equipment to be installed was the 
familiar, but for them hitherto 
lacking, pole, running from the top 
of the building to tbe ground, 
down which any firemen who 
were upstairs when the alarm 
sounded would slide, foe maxi- 
mum speed of turnout. 

They had various comic diffi- 
culties in installing it — it got 
jammed in the street outside, they 
knocked people down with it as 
they manoeuvred, and so on — but 
finally it was in position. Shortly 
afterwards, the alarm bell rang, 
and the entire brigade ran up the 
stairs to the top of tbe building and 
slid, one by one, down the pole. 

It may be several paragraphs 
before the precise relevance of that 
story becomes apparent, but I 
assure you that it will in the end. 

Hutber’s Law, first discovered 
and enunciated by the late Patrick 
Huiber, states: “Progress means 
deterioration". You do not have 
to search very assiduously in the 
recesses of our world to find 
examples of its working. But a 
potential demonstration , of its 
validity was to be found in this 
newspaper recently, in an-item by 
my Home Affaire colleague Peter 
Evans. He reponed thai last year 
there were 22,100 calls for assis- 
tance for freeing people trapped in 
lifts, and went on to describe what 
has been hailed as a solution to 
this problem,' which is a system 
developed by a manufacturer of 
lifts, based on the continuous 
monitoring of them by computer. 
The system has, it appears, under- 
gone trials in Britain, France and 
the United States for three years, 
and has now, apparently, been 
perfected. This is how the makers 
say it works: 

“If a lift fails, the equipment 
sends an alarm to a control centre, 
opening up two-way communica- 
tion for passengers. They can then 
be advised of help on the way, 
through a hidden microphone and 
loudspeaker. Reasons for the stop- 
page and where keys to premises 
can be found will appear auto- 
matically on a monitoring screens 
in the control office”. 

1 do not proposed to join the 
silly clamour about computers. 
Practically all the horror stories 
about the disasters wrought by 
them turn out to be (when, that is, 
they don't turn out to be wholly 
fictitious) the result of imprecise 
or innacurate programming, 
whence the computer acronym 
GIGO for “Garbage In, Garbage 
Out”.

New Delhi 

Rajiv Gandhi's visit yesterday to 
Nagpur, in the western state of 
Maharashtra, was marked by the 
biggest security operation the 
town had ever seen. For as events 
at Rajghat. the state memorial 
commemorating Mahatma Gan- 
dhi. indicated earlier in the morn- 
ing. the prime minister’s life is 
very much at risk. Ever since Sikh 
bodyguards assassinated his 
mother two years ago, Gandhi has 
been on the hit-list of every Sikh 
terrorist group. 

He is blamed, as much as his 
mother, for the “sacrilegious" 
attack on the Golden Temple of 
Amritsar and is regarded as the 
author of all Sikh misfortunes 
since then. Militant Sikhs believe 
that if they can kill him. the Indian 
public will be so hostile to the 
Sikhs in general that their objec- 
tive of an independent Sikh state 
of . KhaJistan will at last be 
accomplished. 

“Revenge is a dish best eaten 
cold" is a saying very much in the 
heart of the Sikh psyche, and Sikh 
assassins have been known to wait 
years before avenging affronts to 
iheir people. Sir Michael 
O’Dwyer, lieutenant-governor of 
Punjab at the time of the 
Jallianwallabagh massacre of 
.1919, was assassinated in London 
in 1940 by a Sikh avenger, long 
after he had retired. 

But it is not only Sikhs who are 
considered a threat to the prime 
minister. Insurgents are operating

north-east oflndia and rumblings

THE TIMES FRIDAY OCTOBER 3 1986 


Washington 

All summits are a risk, and the 
Reykjavik summit is more of a 
risk than most A snap summit 
carries added drama and thus 
higher expectations. And we have 
already had one -fireside summit. 
No one will be satisfied if the only 
result this time is a smiling “spirit 
of Reykjavik". Gorbachov wants 
results, meaning agreements, and 
the fear here is that he is prepared 
to call the summit a failure if be 
does not get them. 

Hence tbe hunger for results. 
But results where? Tbe Geneva 
deal closest to completion con- 
cerns Euro-missiles. But closest 
does not mean dose. An Inter-, 
mediate Nuclear Forces deal is 
-nowhere near completion. The 
latest Soviet terms - a time- 
limited agreement, with leap-of- 
faith verification and no curb on

which to beat back a contrary 
Congress which is challenging him 
on everything from a nuclear test 
ban to South African sanctions. 
Reagan phoned six undecided 
Senators to try to stave off an 
overriding of his veto on South 
Africa. He argued that such a slap 
in the face would weaken him at 
the summit. 

Republican campaign advisors 
see yet another gain from the 
summit “A political masterpiece, 
a real coup," said one. For what? 
For winning the November 
Congressional elections on a peace 
plank. “If you’re talking about 
pure political expediency, it came 
down well. It’s the long-term 
aspects that are disturbing. 

But worse than what may 
happen at Reykjavik is bow we got 
there. Tbe road to Reykjavik ran 
through Daniloff With that deal, 
Reagan gave up not just a Soviet 
spy but a principle and a policy. 
The principle is that in the United 


States, spying is a punishable 
offence. The policy is — was — 
behind the administration de- 
cision to cut down the size of the 
KGB branch office in New York. 
Zakharov is free. (And without so 
much as a decent interval Before 
Daniloff had landed in the US, 
Zakhar ov was already gone.) And 
the baDyhooed expulsion of 25 
senior KGB at the Soviet UN 
mission is now meekly on hold. 

What is wrong with that? Did 
we not liberate Uri Orlov as a 
result? Yes, but behind Oriov are 
tens of thousands in jaQ and 
psychiatric hospitals or just asking 
to leave tbe prison that is the 
Soviet Union. The Soviet capacity 
to manufacture hostages, indig- 
enous and foreign, is unlimited. 
Against an endless supply of 
hostages, the West will need an 
endless supply of principles to give 
up in exchange. 

Hence tbe final purpose of the 
rush to summit: to bury such

But we cannot leave it there. 
Examined more closely, the hu- 
man-error computer disasters 
very frequently turn out to be 
caused not by Garbage In but by 
the fact that the computerized 
business or project simply does 
not need the level of computer 
operation that has been installed; 
;il Ts. you might say, over-edu- 
cated. The vast range of comput- 
ers now on the market, and the 
torrent of advertising and promo- 
tion of them, has inevitably led to 
the installation of systems that are 
largely, or in some cases entirely, 
unnecessary, more — and here we 
see Hutber’s Law in operation — 
lhe computerized firm may be 
then worse off than it was when it 
was operating without such assis- 
tance. or at the very least may 
have to spend expensive man- 
hours on trying to find more uses 
for the system.

as to be almost childish is pro- 
vided by the fate of so many

thing that would revolutionize the 
purchaser's life, thousands upon

Now look again at my excerpt 
from the claims made by the 
manufacturers for the magic wand 


that is to turn being trapped in a 
lift into a remote folk memory,

“If a lift fails, the equipment

equipment fails, does the lift send 
the alarm? The alarm “opens up 
two-way communication for pass- 
engers". Oh. yes? And how many 
times in the last year have yon 
failed to get two-way communica-

.As a result Rajiv Gandhi is 
constantly surrounded by a wall of 
security. His house in Racecourse 
Road in New.Delhi is protected by 
barriers which close off the entire 
street. He never appears in public, 
ev en on the hottest day. without a 
bullet-proof vest hidden under a 
high-necked Nehru jacket. The 
1.500-suong Special Protection 
Group. which guards him — that is 
its sole task — is headed by ah 
inspector general and is drawn 
from the cream of the Delhi police 
and the central paramilitary police 


forces. While local police, 
paramilitaries or even troops pro- 
vide an outer security ring wher- 
ever the prime minister goes, the 
SPG provides an inner cordon. 

Its members wear greyish brown 
safari suits.' instead of regular 
uniforms, and so seem to be in 
plain dothes. but under their 
jackets they carry revolvers and 
frequently brandish short-stocked 
sub-machineguns. Curiously for a 
country which fails to recognize 
Israel, and which gives encourage- 
ment and offidal diplomatic sta- 
tus to the PLO. these guns are said 
to be Israeli-made Uzis. 

The SPG was formed to fill a 
specific need which was being 
hampered by overlapping police 


talk. But doubletalk — lying - is 
the soul of diplomacy. The prob- 
lem is not that a covering lie is 
told. Tbe problem is tbe substance 
of the underlying truth, pie 
problem is what has been forfeited 
on the road to Reykjavik and what 
remains to be forfeited when we

As for “Reasons for the stop- 
page and where keys to premises 
can be found will appear auto- 
matically on a monitoring screen 
in the control office", it suggests 
that the people in charge have 
never heard of human fallibility, 
or even of human beings. (Or 
burglars, come to that, who would 
have a high old time “hacking” 
into computer systems in which 
they can find “where keys to 
premises can be found".) 

A friend recently bought a home 
computer, for use as a word 
processor. He uses it extensively, 
and professes himself delighted 
with it. But he said something 
significant when he was describing 
it to me: “Of course, I'm only 
using about a tenth, if that, -of the 
machine's capacity". I suspect that 
if he was offered a pair of gloves 
with a couple of dozen fingers on 
each, be would not boy them, for 
he would calculate that they made 
no economic sense for a man with 
normal hands, and would urge the 
salesman to try selling them 
instead to an octopus. 

So let it be with the comput- 
erized lift-assistance system. For 
my point is that tbe three years of 
trials could have been bettor used 
to improve the machinery of lifts 
so that they do not break down so 
often, or to invent a simple and 
safe way of getting out ofa Bft that 
has got studs and I should think 
that lift owners, if that bad been 
done, would find it very much 
cheaper to pay for the improve- 
ments and tire emergency exits 
than to instal the new system. 

To return to my coinage, the 
new lifts and escape procedure will 
be over-educated. But in that 
sense, we seem constantly bent on 
rushing into a course of tuition far 
beyond our brains; the locus 
cfossicus of our time, of course, is 
Concorde. (Ivan Ulich haS dem- 
onstrated that in all major cities, 
the average speed of any motor 
vehicle will always be consid- 
erably slower than that of a 
bicycle). 

Any keen entrepreneur reading 
these words would be well advised 
to look into the possibilities of 
manufacturing a computerized 
system for remedying the faults in 
computerized systems of dealing 
with lift breakdowns. The less 
adventurous can use the stairs.

graph was relevant to what was to

responsibilities, red tape, and a 
diffuse command structure. A 
single agency was needed and the 
SPG came into being, trained in 
all forms of combat and studying 
terrorist actions, and anti-terrorist 
techniques, the world over. For 
example, it delved in detail into 
the recent attempted assassination 
of General Pinochet of Chile to 
.work out how he escaped while 
five of his bodyguards were killed. 

The officers and men of the 
’ group go through refresher course 
every two months to maintain 
their physical fitness and to keep 
abreast of developments. They 
work six-hour shins, keeping a 
dose watch on the prime 
minister’s whereabouts and check- 
ing and double-checking visitors, 
occasionally to the annoyance of 
those who consider themselves 
VIPs. Whenever Gandhi travels 
through Delhi, his convoy does 
not move until the SPG gives the 
signal, after dosing off every road 
along the route. 


Gandhi’s family also comes 
under the SPG umbrella. Soon 
after he became prime minister his 
two children, Rahul and Priyanka, 
were withdrawn from the schools 
they were attending, not so much 
because they were unduly exposed 
but because of the risk to the other 
children. For some months they 
were educated at home, but this 
was finally considered undesirable 
because they were denied the 
opportunity to make new friends. 

li is now rumoured, but so far 
not officially confirmed, that they 
are back at school But the school 
is far from the turbulence oflndia 
and the constant vigilance of 
armed bodyguards.- Rahul and 
Priyanka are said to be being 
educated in a diplomatic school in 
Moscow.

retrograde to be talking about the

And: "The extortion intended

A thaw to hot 
up an election 


y. tf**' 




JO 


I The way is rapidly being cleared 
I for a peridti of superpower de- 
tente. The elaborate fiction that 
the Reykjavik meeting is not a 
i summit meeting but a 
about a summit ; the convoluted 
necessity of dressing up the 

Daniloff-Zakharov swap, as some- 

: thing else: Caspar Weinbergers 
I fulminauons about the need for 
proper verification in any forth- 
coming arms control agreement; 
some Soviet press comments on 
the Daniloff affair - these 
indicate that the iireconalables on 
both sides still have to be reck- 
j oned with. But it is now very 
difficult for them to stem the tide 
of events and the P re&ure or 
expectation. A significant arms 
control agreeement on intermedi- 
ate range nuclear weapons has 
become a near-certainty, with 
more to follow. 

The force that has achieved this 
transformation (can it be only 
three years since President 
Reagan's “Evil Empire" speech in 

i ■ ji <w ■ AAAnrtmtf* 


Orlando?) is chiefly economic, 
and none the worse for that. The 
American right's rationale for the 
huge defence expenditure of tbe 
past six years — that it would 
wreck tbe Soviet economy without 
wrecking the American — has 
proved untenable. The cost of the 
arms race at its recent and 
prospective pace became too 
much for the US Congress as wdl 
as for Gorbachov's new economic 
planners; and the fact that these 
constraints can be expected to 
persist is the best guarantee that 
the irreconcilables' rearguard ac- 
tion will not regain much ground 
in the next year or two. 

Tbe results of an extended thaw 
will be felt wherever the super- 
powers are involved in the world, 
which is to say virtually every- 
where. But there can be nowhere 
(with the possible exception of 
West Germany) where the politi- 
cal implications are potentially 
more important than in Britain, or 
where, in my opinion, they are 
harder to read. Will a period of 
East-West relaxation. lasting, if I 
am right, until long after the latest 
possible date for a British election, 
vindicate the government? Will it 
help tbe Alliance get off the 
Liberal unilateralist book? Or will 
it simply defuse the whole defence 
issue and thereby make the cloud- 
cuckooland irresponsibility of La- 
bour more or lessirrelevant? . 

Let us consider the two main 
scenarios now being canvassed. In 
the first, Mrs Thatcher scoops the 
pooL To her right wing she will 
point out that she has managed to . 
keep British weapons off the 
negotiating table and that the 
prospect of their -efficacy being 
undermined by Star Wars devel- 
opments has receded, To tbe mere 
pacific public she can, or at any 
rate win. maintain that the process 
of arms control has been success- 
fully promoted by the British 
government; she will claim to 
have been whispering influential 
encouragement in Reagan’s ear, 
and more generally point the 
moral that it is the West’s (and 
Britain’s) resolute possession of 


nuclear weapons which has forced 
the Russians to do a deal The next 
step will be a Thatcher insit to 
Moscow during the wnwerio help 
promote other, “harmless* arms 
control measures that may stffi be 
in play - conventional few cuts, 
limitations on chemical andbj®- 
fagjca) warfare and a new testbm. 
With this nrantie of coBcraatoiy 
statesmanship wrapped Afound 
her she wiU, attending to one 
extravagant version, find her per- 
sonal popularity so restored that 
she will be able to call her election 
next spring before the looming 
economic recession catches- up 
with ter- . . - 

-The pro-Labour versioxns natu- 
rally different, and has already 
begun to mate a tentative appear- 
ance at the Labour conference in 
Blackpool. It runs something fee 
ibis: the Soviet willingness to do. 
business proves that they are not 
ogres but reasonable peopte, as we 
have maintained all along; ft also 
shows that, gjven a minimum of 
American goodwill, the huge, 
useless arsenal of nuclear weapons 
really can be drastica lly reduce d. 
A great many highly respectable, 
even Conservative, strategic ex- 
perts have admitted that there is 
no real military need for American, 
cruise missiles in Britain; the new 
era of East-West co-operation 
removes the last vestiges of 
political rationale as well. Havigg 
got so far let us now push even 
harder for a “non-nuclear Europe 
in a non-nuclear world" and mat t 
that Britain and France contribute 
to the process, instead of brooding 
on their clutch of warheads white 
everybody else is reducing theirs 

As between these two scripts, it 
is difficult to say which will “play’ 
better. There are certainly some 
plusses on the government side. 
An expansive mood of inter- 
national optimism must help al 
incumbent governments. Stil 
more important will be- the mu 
tralizatkm of the anti-Reagar 
factor which has become so deeplj 
entrenched on the left and evei 
the centre of British politics 
distorting public attitudes to all 
alliance matters and smearing a 
“Reaganite” prime minister with 
guilt by association. 

On the otter hand, common- 
sense proclaims that those parties 
(Labour and the Alliance) who are 
in most difficulties over defence 
and security will benefit most if ft. 
is a less urgent and frightening 
matter to the general public fate it 
has promised to become. Ida not 
see how, in a successful .-post- 
summit atmosphere, defence 
coukl become “the" issue of the , 
election — and In that case oteof 
the most effective Conservative : 
weapons against Labour and the 
Alliance will have been blunted. 
In terms of global security jnd 
economic prosperity the whole 
world will benefit from a success- 
ful meeting in Reykjavik. Looking 
at it with their usual parochial 
intensity, British politicians day 
also conclude that all the British 
parties have something to gain. 
But I believe the Opposition 
probably has more ax state

Quickest way 
to a million 


People who do very unusual jobs 
indeed (50): The man who counts 
people al public gatherings, and 
everything else as well 
You've probably seen his head- 
lines. “Two million flock to see 
Pope.” “200 Arrested as Police 
Find Ounce of Cannabis.” “Brit- 
ain £3 billion in red." You 
probably wondered who was 


responsible for producing such 
well rounded-up figures. What you 
didn't know was that it was all the 
work of one man, Rounder-Up to 
the Media, John Wheeler. But how 
is he able to go on turning out such 
spor-on statistics. How can he be 
so accurate all the time? 

“We can't," admits Wheeler 
blithely. “Frankly, after the first 
million we stop counting, and we 
round it up to tbe next million. 1 
don’t know if you’ve ever counted 
a papal flock, but not only do they 
all look a bit the same, they also 
don’t keep very still, what with all 
the bowing and crossing them- 
selves. 

“The only way you could do it 
accurately is taking an aerial 
photograph of the crowd and hand 
it to the computer to work out. But 
then you’d get a headline saying, 
“1.678,1634 flock to see Pope, not 
including 35.467 who couldn't get 
a glimpse of him", and, believe 
me; nobody wants that sort of 
headline." 

The art of big figures, avers 
Wheeler, lies m psychology, not 
statistics: The public likes a figure 
it can admire. It likes millionaires, 
and million-sellers, and centuries 
at cricket, so Wheeler’s inter- 
national agency gives them the 
figures it wants, which involves 
not only rounding up but round- 
ing down. 

“In the old days people used to 
deal with crowds on the Isle of 
Wight principle. You know, they'd 
say that every day the population 
of the world increased by the 
number of people who could stand 
upright on the Isle of White, or the 
rain forests were being decreased 
by an area the size of Rutland. 

Tt:. . 


abolish Rutland to get rid of it’ 
“No, what people want is a fcw 
good millions. A hundred millfah, 
if possible. One of our in vendues 
was street value, for instance^ 
the old days they used to say- rial 
police had discovered drugs itea 
quantity large enough to- jet 
Rutland stoned for a fortnight Ve 
started saying that the drugs haffa 
street value of £10 million. Ab- 


solutely meaningless, but peoafe 
understand it better." 


Sometimes they do get figures 
spot on. “250,000 flock to lee 
royal two”, was one of his reemt 
headlines, and although tee 
250,000 was a rounded-tip figute, 
the two was quite correct In its 
palatial office he sits sunouteed 
by relics of past headlines -na 
million-year-old fossil,. a £500,600 
Manet, a photograph of .tea 
Thatcher’s £500,000 house J tat 
pride of place goes to a pairbf 
shoes framed on the wafl. - -4 

“Why the shoes? Because they 
cost me £39.99. They serve asu 
reminder of mankind's other graft 
uige, to have stupid odd figures. 
Strange, isn't it? They want ixmss 
demos of exactly half a million, 
but they also warn their gramo- 
phone records to go round at 33%, 
45 or 78rpra. We have stayed - fa 
business by remembering that 
below a certain level people wait 
oddity. They don't want a rocket 
costing £299 million and 9?p,anS 
they don’t want a radio costing 
exactly £50" T - 

How does he explain the times 
when figures dash — when, for 

example, the organizers ofa demo 

daim 250,000 but the police put. ft 
at nearer 100,000? 

"We provide both sets of fig* 
ures, the. figures the organizers 
want and those the police want 
The public believes both. If-** 
gave the true figure,' abofft 
167,890, nobody would believe d, 
because it really doetatV sound 
believable." . - v . .

Yesterday’s Labour con- 
ference, in the debate on Nato 
_ and defence policy, applauded 
this impassioned peroration: 
“The Americans boast they 
fought world war one' in 
; Europe and world war two in 
Europe. Don’t let them boast 
that they fought world war 
three in' Europe.” The ap- 
plause for this argument was 
Opt. perhaps .dea^ung, but it 
was'; significantly unaccom- 
panied' by boos or expressions 
of disagreement 
■ These lines carry the im- 
plication dot America was in 
some sense responsible for the 
two world wars. That is, of 
course, the exact opposite of 
the traditional anti-American 
complaint that the United 
States involved itself in those 
Wars rather late in the day. 
i What, then, did the audi- 
ence think it was applauding? 
Perhaps the best explanation is 
that it was determined to find 
the US guilty of starting a 
hypothetical third world war 
fought on European soil and 
simply extended the assump- 
tion of American guilt back- 
wards in time to these earlier 
conflicts. . . 

The Labour leadership is, of 
course, more circumspect, but 
it is circumspect within a 
tradition of anti-Americanism. 
Mr Kinnock, for instance, has 
generously absolved President 
Reagan of any sympathy with 
bis Defense Secretary’s criti- 
cism of Labour unilateralism. 
In feet, the President shares 
Mr Weinberger’s point of view 
— at least the American 


set to take place. 

But the simple feet is that 
Jkatcher long ago- 
baulked at. the prospect of 
|entiine reform of the British 
Broadcasting Corporation. & 

is a tribute to her. good sens^ — 
not to her courage — that 
she seems to have recognized 
that retreat 

She has not appointed a 
determined advocate of her 
own political views. In the 
current climate, which is no 
little of her own makings such 
a choice would be counter- 
productive. 

She has not appointed a

men are only useful if there is a 
fight to be won, a clear 
objective to be reached. It was 
ironic that for so long there 
were rumours that Lord King 
would be given the job. The 
British Airways boss who had 
ca used such impatient ruc- 
tions during BA’s slow 
progress towards privatization 
could hardly have borne the 
institutionalized uncertainties 
of Broadcasting House. 

Mr Hussey may endure 
them better. His prime task is 
to ensure that the BBCs 
editorial independence from 
state control — the one quality 
that makes the licence fee 
worth paying — is maintained 
for as long as that unfair , 
regressive, hypothecated tax 
upon the television-owning 
public is maintained. 

This wfll be neither quick 
nor easy. Suspicion and fear

corridors and the corridors of

Ambassador (who should 
know) thinks he does. But by 
masting that the American 
administration Iras no real 
complaint about Labour de- 
. fence policy, Mr Kinnock is 
able to reconcile Britain’s 
continued membership of a 
US-led alliance with the re- 
moval from Britain of the 
American ■ deterrent . which 
lmderpmsit: v .'f 
The - anti-American /. low 
ground can be glimpsedin the 
shifty warnings of. Shadow 
Defence Secretary Denzfl Da- 
vies against any attempt by the 
Americans to “subordinate” 
the defence policy of a 
“sovereign” government. 
Subordinate in this context is a 
useful verb which obscures the 
very considerable difference 
between an ally’s criticism and 
an attempted coup. 

And, indeed, many of the 
delegates yesterday plainly re- 
garded American troops in 
Britain as an occupying force 
rather than fellow-members of 
a defensive alliance. Until 
recently, such sentiments were 
sharply disavowed by party 
leaders because they were felt 
to be unpopular with the 
majority of voters. Their 
flanker expression today re- 
flects the feet that anti-Ameri- 
canism is a theme running 
.strongly in British society at 
large. Labour feels that it is an 
advantage to be seen as anti- 
American and that Mrs 
Thatcher will suffer electoraliy 
from her association with 
President Reagan. 

It is an apparently shrewd 


Westminster. Programme 
makers have reacted to this 
year’s alarms by becoming 
more difficult, even devious. 
Politicians have reacted by 
becoming more. Vocal and 
intrusive. 

Mr Hussey has to build 
bridges inside the BBC to 
ensure that he knows where 
potential fires are burning. He 
has to build bridges outside the 
BBC to ensure that he knows 
which fires can be encouraged 
and which need to be 
quenched at source. He will 
have less difficulty with the 
former for which his previous 
experience has prepared him 
wdl, than with the latter, it is 
possible to rise to great exec- 
utive heights in Broadcasting 
House without gaining an 
adequate picture of how the 
organization does the strange 
things that it does: the man 
who has barely found Portland 
Place on the A-to-Z street map 
is at a big disadvantage. 

Previous chains en have felt 
title need to know their way 
through the maze: They have 
relied mi their Director Gen- 
eral to keep them informed 
and their common sense to do 
the rest. Mr Hussey should 
examine the character and 
career of his Director General; 
he should read the internal 
reports of the Real Lives affair; 
he should examine the mating 
(and the marketing) of The 
Monoded Mutineer, he should 
ask himself what he has to do 
to protect an organization that 
has been given a fresh 
opportunity to protect itself 
but seems still to have so little 
will to do so. 


calculation, but it may yet turn 
out to be mistaken. Popular 
anti-Americanism is quite dif- 
ferent from Labour’s more 
fixed and ideological kind. 
Politically, it is by and laige a 
response to President Reagan’s 
reputation on this side of the 
Atlantic as a trigger-happy 
cowboy who cannot be trusted 
with • nuclear weapons. This 
impression in the popular 
mind, always a caricature, is 
likely to be greatly amended in 
the future as a result of the 
forthcoming Reykjavik sum- 
mit and progress towards an 
arms control agreement 

Even if that should not come 
to pass, however. Labour 
could wefl come to grief 
through misunderstanding 
what non-political anti-Ameri- 
canism is essentially about It 
is a normal nationalist resent- 
ment against a powerful friend 
and ally and it expresses itself 
in grumbling and irritation. 

But people , who grumble 
about America will not nec- 
essarily wish to break up an 
alliance with the US which has 
helped keep the peace in 
Europe for forty years and 
which assists our own national 
interests. They Trill remember, 
if some Labour delegates do 
not that if any Americans bear 
some slight responsibility .for 
world war two, it is the 
American isolationists.:’ And 
they wiH accordingly be sus- 
picion s of a party and a 
defence policy which en- 
courages a revival of isola- 
tionism in the great republic. 


From the President of The British 
Atlantic Committee 

Sir. Before the controversy over 
die Labour Parry's defence policy 
goes further, it is important to get 
one thing straight. Briefly stated, it 
is that it is not “interference in our 
internal affairs” for the United 
States — or for that matter any of 
our other Allies— to e xp re ss views 
abont iL 

The very essence of the Atlantic 
Alliance is that it provides the 
effective collective security to 
which only lip service was paid in 
the 1930s. Defence policy for the 
Atlantic area is a matter for 
discussion and agreement 
amongst the Allies, and it is 
remarkable to what extent that 
policy has always been the result 
of collective consultation, through 
which national plans are fitted 
into a coherent whole. 

Thus, no member of the Alli- 
ance can “go it alone” in formulat- 
ing new approaches, or be 
immune from comment or criti- 
cism if those new approaches are 
perceived by other members as 
having a material effect on their 
own, or common, interests and 
security. (Mr Healey’s remarks on 
Panorama (September 29) should 
surprise nobody, because nobody 
has greater experience of. or has 
made a greater contribution to, the 
Nato defence planning process). 

Of course, a party not in 
government does not p ar t icipa t e 
m that process; bat is it not 
sensible to leave it in no doubt 
what others think well before- 
hand? 

There is another case in point 
where the boot is on the other foot. 
The Social Democratic Party in 
the Federal Republic of Germany 
is also developing new ideas on 
defence: If ever put into effect, 
they could have profound con- 
sequences for the role, effective- 
ness and viability of the British 
Army and Royal Air Force in 
Germany. It is fair to say that the 
Labour Party has the right — even 
the dnty — to form considered 
views on this issu e and commu- 
nicate them to the SPD. 

There is room for argument 
about the content, timing, and 
manne r of outside comment on 
these things; but not about tbe 
principle of the right, and duty, to 
make it 
Yours truly, '.

From Major-General 
Acland 

Sir. It is posable to understand, 
and almost to sympathise with, 
Mr Kinnock’s problems on de- 
face policy- He has ro experience 

of government and a wife dedi- 
cated to CND. 

What, however, is not fair to the 
electorate is tbe failure of Mr 
Denis, Healey to explain his 
volte-face. As an MP, minister, 
even as Secretary of State for 
Defence, and thereafter, be has 
consistently supported Britain’s 
nuclear deterrent. Nothing he has 
said recently has explained his 
sudden conversion to uni- 
lateralism and it would be sad if 
such an intelligent politician were 
deemed to be so much a fudger. 
Could he enlighten those who 

have in the past respected him?

From Mr D- M. Young 
Sir, A clue to what might happen 
to the United Kingdom's position 
in Nato if a Labour government 
should ask the Americans to 
remove their nuclear weapons 
from British soil is provided by 
the New Zealand case. By refusing 
to allow vessels in its harbours 
that were suspected of carrying 
nuclear missiles, the Lange Gov- 
ernment brought upon itself the 
wrath and ire of its closest allies. 

As a direct result, New Zealand 
has been effectively shm out of tire 
protection off ere d under the 
Anzus treaty. This was done 
despite the statements of Mr 
Lange that he did not see his 
action as conflicting with any 
responsibilities under the pact and 
that his country wished to remain 
an active m ember of iL 

Mr Kinnock should take note.

From Mr Maurice Ross 
Sir, In view of the co n troversy 
surrounding -the Labour Party's 
defence policy I find it ironic that 
the conference should hail the 
Leader's speech today with a chant 
to the tune of “The Stars and 
Stripes Forever”.

Ford's letter (September 25) about 
the burden of paying VAT on 
church repairs, may I mention a 
similar problem that we have 
come across. The Government, so 
far as I know, has no direct 
responsibility for financing church 
repairs but ft is legally responsible 
for paying the majority (8$ per 
cent) of the cost of improvements 
to voluntaryaided schools. 

I administer five such grammar 
schools and for each of tbe last 
three years we have sought ap- 
proval for the installation of fire 
precautions (classified as 
‘improvements’), the work having 
been identified by the Fire Sendee 
as essential Our requests have 
been declined. We are not un- 
sympathetic. We appreciate that 
the Government has insufficient 
resources even for such priorities. 


■ Hence, for the safety of the 
pupils, my governors are consid- 
ering financing the work entirely 
themselves, at a cost in the region 
of £200,000. But there would be a 
further £30,000 to find for VAT. 

I wrote to the Chancellor of the 
Exchequer to enquire if a resolu- 
tion of this problem was possible: 
A Treasury official replied briefly, 
almost curtly, to say that VAT was 
a matter for Customs and Excise 
and that my letter had been passed 
to that department. Obviously, 
my query had not been under- 
stood, . . . 

As things stand, if wie go ahead 
with the plan, we shall be “fined" 
£30,000 for laving undertaken to 
subsidize the Government to the 
tone of £170,000: 

Yours faithfully,

MR GANDHI’S NARROW ESCAPE 


Yesterday’s attempt on the life 
of the Indian Prime Minister, 
Mr Rajiv Gandhi, was another 
warning — if any were 
needed -of the element ot 
chance in the destiny of na- 
. tipns. Inevitably, thoughts re- 
timed to the manner in which 
Rajiv Gandhi came to power* 
inheriting the' mantle of his 
assassinated mother, in- 

tiritably, too, thoughts turned 

forward' to speculate about 
what would have happened u 
ihe attempt, however random 
and poorly organized, had 
succeeded. 

‘ But the immediate concern 
must be the problem of 




ing the safety of *e Indian 
leader outside the <*P l ^J* 
Despite the presence erf hun- 
dreds of security guard* and 
elaborate precaution:** 
with a home-made gun ■ 
able to remain undetected for 

long enough to fire his ptrtoh 

nogust once but threeum^ 
all. The to that this was 
possible only wo 
the tilling of In dira 9^ 
suggests continuing to*® 
.security which will need to be 

examined. 

- It will, of course,. be said 
with some justification 

ffie two attempts wereqmie 

different. The one was mencu 
touslv planned from inside ^ ffie 

tSd Sikh guard and almost 

impossible to prevent 


other was apparently commit- 
ted by tbe single-minded 
crank, who is the nightmare of 
every security service. 

But the worldwide concern 
that even so unprofessional an 
assassination attempt has 
aroused illustrates the speed 
with which Rajiv Gandhi has 
established himself as a world 
leader. When he became prime 
minister there were many who 
liked to describe him as an 
airline pilot who had risen 
above his level of competence. 
He had taken the job, they 
said, only out ofa sense of duty 
to the memory of his mother 
and deceased brother, and to 
India. Little was expected of 
his premiership and much was 
feared. 

Two years later, he has 
become an accomplished 
statesman abroad, whose opin- 
ions and representations on 
behalf of the less developed 
world command attention. At 
home, he has made serious 
attempts to solve the seem- 
ingly insoluble secessionist cn- 
sesin the Punjab and Kashmir 
and end the communal vi- 
olence in Assam. He has also 
made an assault on India s age- 
old corruption, though so far 
with limited success. 

These moves, which have 
threatened many vKted.m- 
lerests, have - made him 
predictably unpopular u. 


many quarters, not least with 
some members of his. own 
Congress Party. They fear that 
he risks losing their party’s 
power by wanting to change 
too much loo fast. Despite 
such criticisms, however, 
Rajiv Gandhi has managed to 
project the image of a fader 
. who is serious about preserv- 
ing India as a unitary state and 
who is courageous enough to 
contest the cJaims of secession- 
ist leaders. This Is an achieve- 
ment that has evaded many of 
his predecessors. 

Paradoxically, ..it is the 
achievement of a man who 
was largely untrained in poli- 
tics before acceding to power. 
But then India is rich in 
paradox. Despite its leaders’ 
rejection of violence, in the 
tradition of Mahatma Gandhi, 
it is a society riven by strife. 
Sectarian murder, caste-based 
- feuding, bride-burning are not 
unus ual. H uman life in India 
comes cheap. 

In 1984 one response to the 
assassination of Indira Gandhi 
was a two-day orgy of revenge 
killing which left more than 
2,500 people dead. Two years 
later, the assassination of Mrs 
Gandhi’s heir — had it suc- 
ceeded — could have brought 
on even greater convulsions of 
violence. Fortunately for 
India's Prime Minister, the 
attempt failed. But it was a 
narrow escape. 


Winchester Cathedral 

From the Director of the Win- 
chester Cathedral Trust 
• Sir, Nigel Andrew’s article 
(September 27) about Winchester 
Cathedral showed the happier tide 
of this wonderful old buDding. 
Photographs taken on the north- 
ern side would have shown that 
the whole of the north transept 
roof is hidden in a plastic cocoon 
whilst major repairs are carried 
out on the timbers below. 

This task alone wQl fast 18 
months and cost about £200,000. 
Other similar tasks will follow as 
the necessary funds are raised by 
tbe trust Sadly, the 75p visitors 
are asked to donate is insufficient 
to mot these costs, which we 
estimate will total £3 million 
during the next five to 10 yeais.

Clergy widows 

From the Secretary qf the Church 
of England Pensions Board 
Sir, In his letter (September 24) 
Canon Wilkinson expressed con- 
cern about tbe situation of the wife 
-and children of a clergyman who 
dies in office. 

Tbe Church would always have 
■made every effort to arrange 
bousing in these circumstances 
although, at tbe time to which he 
referred (six years ago), the re- 
sources available to my board 
were limited. 

This problem was recognised 
and, in 1 983. the board was able to 
introduce a new housing scheme 
which provides equity sharing 
mortgage loans or properties for 
renting. The provision of housing 
ought, thankfully, no longer to be 
a matter of anxiety for clergy 
widows or retired clergymen. 
Yours faithfully.

Investment in 
the Tunnel 

From the Editor of Railway 
Gazette International 

Sir. Kenneth Fleet's gloomy view 
(September 27) of turotunneTs 
pathfinder prospect us ignores the 

fact that major deviations from 
the baric assumptions underlying 
cross-Channel traffic forecasts im- 
ply major political or economic 
upheavals that might affect alter- 
native investments just as badly. 

For example, the steady in- 
crease in traffic on which forward 
projections are based has only 

been reversed in the last 100 years 
by the two world wan. 

As to inflation, once the Chan- 
nel tunnel is built, variations from 
tbe ievd of 6 per cent assumed 
after 1991 simply transfer real 
wealth between holders of equity 
and fan stock. Any fund manager 
who wants a secure hedge against 
inflation in the 1 990s should rush 
to buy Eurotunnel shares. 

Greater uncertainty surrounds 
the proportion of total cross- 
Channel traffic that the tunnel win 
capture, but Mr Fleet exaggerates 
this difficulty when he describes 
the assumption that 75 per cent of 
foot passengers wfl] use the tunnel 
as “anyone's guess” 

These people are mainly rail 
travellers who now walk on and 
off the ferries. To suggest that they 
might continue to use the ferries 
after boat trains bad been with- 
drawn and replaced by much 
faster through services is patently 
absurd.

Last train let-down 

From Mr Alan Moore 

Sir. On September 14 1 boarded a 

train at Hung Horn station. Hong 

Kong, to commence a journey 

entirely by rail, returning me to 

the UK after seven years in the Far 

East. 

My travels took me through 
eight countries, nine time zones 
and over 9,500 miles of railway 
track. Throughout this journey 
every train departed and arrived 
strictly to schedule; until I caught 
the 19*45 from Waterloo to 
Eastleigh on a Saturday 13 days 
after leaving Hong Kong. 

This, the last train of my 
journey, was delayed at 
Basingstoke, then diverted around 
Wiltshire, to deposit me with 
waiting relatives over one hour 
late. 

Not only was this train the only 
one to run fate, it was also by far 
the dirtiest 

My thanks to British Rail- It's 
nice to think some things never 

rhang fr. 

Yours faithfully.

French lesson 

From Mr Peter Lemson 
Sir, No one circumnavigating 
2000 miles round France, as my 
wife and I have just done, could 
fail to be impressed by tbe 
confidence and pride in its future 
as shown by French in v estment in 
roads, railways, schools, housing 
and factories. 

This was evident, not merely in 
m^jor towns, but in many 
comparatively small ones, and 
contrasted sadly with the shabby, 
pinched air of such institutions in 
England. What also impressed us 
was the quality and imagination of 
the new building — especially 
compared with our lame-duck 
municipal housing. 

Geariy the French are not 
pushing their problems under the 
carpet, to be unearthed by the next 
generation — bereft in our case of 
North Sea oil. Perhaps some wise 
economist can explain tbe virtues 
of our disinflation policy, which is 
reducing manufacture, increasing 
imports and unemployment and 
dividing society, with a super- 
stitious devotion only equalled by 
believers in Joanna Southcott's 
Box. 

Yours truly.

OCTOBER 3 1908 

Wilbur Wright (I867-I912) went 
to France in August, seeking 
wider markets for the " airplane" 
which he end his brother, OrviBe. 
had invented. On a race course 
outside Le Mans ke was making 
the tests required in the sale of the 
French rights to a syndicate. By 
the end of the year, irhenheleft, 
he had made ooer JOG /lights, mu 
airborne for more than 25 hours 
and ended with a record flight of 
mare than two hours. 


MS WRIGHT AT LE MANS 
(From Onr Special 
Correspondent) 

Le Man*, Sept. 30 
_ Mr Wright is an altogether 
extraordinary person, and his «c 
Hrinq are nnliir* those of ordinary 
man. Even those who know him 
best have given up attempting to 
forecast what he will do in any 
particular circumstances. The only 
thing that one can count upon u 
the truth of any positive statement 
that he makes; but then he never 
makes n positive statement, if he 
can possibly help it. Few men have 
simpler and more attractive 


manner, few men have 
charming smile, but few men are 
less communicative, and certainly 
no one that 1 ever met was more 
indifferent to considerations which 
might naturally be expected to 
influence him. Mr Wright is an 
ascetic savant, a refined and 
dignified rerhnr. His mind is like 
the figure ot a geometrical propoei 
tinn. He seems to have taken up 
flying in order to find out whether 
certain results, which he had 
attained on paper, come true in 
practice. Retiring by temperament, 
he dislikes a crowd, and had kept it 
at arm's length as long as be couki 
His love of solitude leads him to 
sleep on two or three planks laid 
across the roof-beams of his aero- 
plane shed, though even here two 
bullets from the adjacent rifle 
ranges have found him out, and left 
holes in the flimsy walls of his 
shelter, one indeed insolently pare 
ing through the midst of the 
framework of his machine. 

This detachment from the gross- 
er interests of the business man. 

♦hi* hiijiffwpnr> tnih* twKnp MiH 

expectations of the general public, 
is in itself beyond criticism. One 

iunnnt foot wli ni w th» 

deliberateness of his movements, 
the meticulous care which he 
bestows upon t>i> machine, which 
is the wont of his own hands and 
brain. He is perfectly entitled to fly 
when and only when “he feels like 
it", when he is satisfied with the 
weather, conditions and with the 
state of his motor. Anyone can 
understand that to a man of his 
character the presoioe of an enor- 
mous crowd waiting hour after 
hour to see him “do something” 
must be extremely distasteful. He 
has not invited people to come; he 
has seldom expressed even a hope 
that there will be something for 
them to see. He cannot help their 
coming, but they come at their own 
risk, and cannot complain if they 
are disappointed 
But even Mr Wright, his mind 
intent on' problems of lubrication 
and centrifugal force, cannot af- 
ford, any more than those whom 
Ids achievements fill with admira- 
eimi, trt ipn»» indafinteefa the 
of the earth on which after aD ha 
spends most of his time. I cannot 
discover what he reafly thinks 
about his proceedings h ere- He is 
said to have committed hhnsrif to 
the phrase that they are a “demon- 
stration that the problem of avia- 
tion has been solved". If this 
merely means that when there is a 
calm or a very gentle breeze and 
when his motor behaves ifeselL and 
when he does not run out of oil or 
petrol, he can fly alone or with a 
passenger for a considerable time 
at a height of 40ft to 50ft, and at a 
speed of a kilometre a minute, it is 
as true as his are arrraih g. 
But whether Mr Wright be 
'demonstrator” of ascertained 
troths, or, as it seems more 
re a so n a b le to suppose, an experi- 
menter is conditions which, 
though he doubtless understands 

them better than anyone else, still 
frequently baffle him, the fact 
remains that he has a world- wide 
reputation. He is also, for all his 
habits of retirement, a public 
character. Whatever be may call 
his feats at Auvours, they are a 
public performance. Cavalry keep 
the ground; multitudes arrive on 
foot, by motor, fay bicycle, by the 
she or seven special trains which 
run every day. The Press describes 
his every movement at conscien- 
tious length. Le Mans has been 
galvanized into fife, and become 
once more historic. Mr Wright is 
no longer a mysterious hermit in 
the Kflkievil Hills of Northern 
Carolina, but a public celebrity. 
Auvours is the Mecca of an 
enthusiastic crowd. 


Sale of vicarages 

From Lady Elton 
Sir, The sale of a vicarage, 
preceded by perfunctory 
“consultation”, is a grievous 
shock to a parish, which is likely to 
see it change hands again at a vast 
profit There are many imagi- 
native and capable architects well 
able to alter a vicarage so that it Post h ag tfi 
can be economically heated and 
triaiip g|jngd. 


patronising to assume that parish- 
ioners arc architecturally illiterate; 
and oblivious to what they have 
lost. 

Yours faithfully, 

MARGARET ELTON,

This is especially true of the 
study and. capacious Victorian 
vicarage, but “Victorian” has 
become a term of fear and 
opprobrium in the Church of 
England The Victorian Society 
reported (April 1985) that one or 
two diocesan advisory committees 
had refused to allow members of 
the society to sit on the DAG 

The real tragedy, as the Rev- 
erend J. W. Masding points out 
(September 27), is that the inte- 
grated unity of church, vicarage, 
and often a school has been 
irrevocably destroyed. It is

Pressures on NHS 

From the Chairman of the General 
Medical Services Committee qf the 
British Medical Association 
Sir, Mr Ray Whitney (September 
25). recently released from the 
constraints of office as a minister 
of the DHSS, now advocates 
“radical care”, whilst preserving 
the essence of tbe NHS. He also 
criticises “health service insiders”, 
and in particular the BMA, for 
failing to propose solutions which 

measure up to his aspirations. 

He does not, of course, tell us 
what radical alternatives would 
satisfy him but urges us to look at 
them honestly! The Secretary of 
State, Norman Fowler, at a recent 
public meeting to discuss the 
Government’s discussion docu- 
ment oh primary health care, 
reassured the profession and the 
public that the Government is still 
committed to a comprehensive 
health service available to all 
without financial deterrent to 
necessary medical treatment 

The medical profession wel- 
comes that pledge and believes the 
public would be reassured if Mr 


Whitney did not immediately seek 
to undermine it with talk of 
radical alternatives.

A cheer for Britain’s image builders

As the New Architecture Exhibition 


opens at the Royal Academy

Architecture Correspondent, flies 


the flag for a wealth of British talent

i. 




I n A Broken Wave, Lord 
Esher's penetrating analysis 
of the reconstruction of 
Britain after the Second 
World War, he quotes two 
commentators who represent di- 
ametrically opposed views of the 
current state of the arts. 

“All sensible and sensitive 
people," says the writer Paul 
Johnson, “know that modern 
architecture is bad and horrible." 

For the American architect 
Philip Johnson, who at SO this 
year takes a telescopic view of 
present trends within a historical 
perspective, Britain is the fount of 
“the best modem architecture in 
the world". 

It is certainly true to say, on the 
one hand, that there has never 
been greater public interest in — 
and hostility to— so much of what 
has been built in recent years. But 
it is equally the case that architec- 
ture produced by the leading 
members of the profession in this 


country has proved to be one of 
our least appreciated exports — 
except by those abroad. 

The three best buildings by 
Norman Foster, Richard Rogers 
and James Stirling, whose wonc is 
celebrated in the New Architec- 
ture exhibition at the Royal 
Academy opening today, are all 
overseas; the Hongkong and 
Shanghai Bank headquarters in 
Hong Kong, the Pompidou Centre 
in Paris and the Staalsgalerie in 
Stuttgart. 

' Meanwhile, with rare excep- 
tions, every architect struggles to 
find patrons on his home patch 
with enough foresight and 
commitment to produce similar 
work here. 

The Prince of Wales, who 
entered the national debate on 
architecture two years ago, has 
never passed public comment on 
the three leading contemporary 
British architects, but he un- 
doubtedly speaks for the lay 


person when, like W illiam Morris, 
he states his preference for budd- 
ings that are “beautiful as well as 
socially useful". 

The trouble is, of course, that 
beauty is the most subjective 
quality on earth; what is one 
critic's oil refinery is another 
person's 20th-century equivalent 
of a Gothic cathedral 

The establishment opinion — 
and there is one represented by the 
Royal Institute of British Archi- 


In the case of Stirling it was in 
1980, before he chang e d gear from 
hi-tech to the post-modernist 
style, the latter of which does not 
amuse those with more puritani- 
cal convictions in the institute. 


The Dallaslifestyle 
of executive jets 


But to concentrate on these 
three celebrities alone, whose 
Dallas lifestyles of executive jets, 
smart houses and fast cars now 
form the subject of eulogies in 
print, would be to deny the wealth 
of architectural talent employed in 
this country od a range of projects, 
not all of mem as prestigious, or 
expensive, as those already 
mentioned. - 


Koralek. Terry Farrell Jeremy 
Dixon, BDP, Barry Gasson and, in 
the public sector. Colin Stacsfieid 
Smith, undoubtedly enjoy more 
universal popular appeal 

Each, to a greater or lesser 
degree, has come under the stylis- 
tic influence of American post- 
modernism. whose way was paved 
by Robert Venturi's seminal book. 
Complexity and Contradiction in 
Architecture : published in 1966. 


An impact on the 
way of practising 


tects — is that Rogers, Foster and 
Stirling are the very cream of the 
profession worldwide. It is for that 
reason that all three received the 
Royal Gold Medal for architecture 
from the Queen, on the institute's 
recommendation, during the past 
six years. 


Hi-tech buildings, the suoces- 
. sors to the Victorian engineering 
structures that glorified technol- 
ogy and the use of new materials, 
feature high in tire first division of 
recent work, but the more dec- 
orative approach of architects 
such as Arup. Associates, Edward 
Cullman, Ahrends • Burton & 


We shaB soon be able to see 
Venturi's thesis illustrated when 

R ians are unveiled soon for the 
’ational Gallery extension in 
Trafalgar Square. 

Ornament, decoration, pattern 
and colour are combined with a 
legacy of the English ans-and- 


crafts traditions by these archi- 
tects, to produce work no less of its 
age than a sophisticated bank 
skyscraper or centre for the 
world's insurance market, such as 
Rogers' Lloyd's building in the 
City of London. 

The building's visual language 
is, however, both readily under- 
stood by a broad cross-section of 
people, and consciously designed 
to elicit such empathy from them. 

And. because such projects tend 
to be more domestic in scale, they 
relate more easily to their immedi- 
ate surroundings, a phenomenon 
which has also succumbed to 
critical pigeon-holing by being 
described as "contextual”. 

Examples may be seen in 
Cuiiinan's reconstruction of St 
Mary's Church. Barnes, in south- 
west London: Dixon's housing at 
St Mark's Road in north Kensing- 
ton. London: and Hillingdon 
Civic Centre in north-west Lon- 
don. 


But the past few months have 
also seen a translation of some of 
these ideas to a new scale, a city 
scale, as major projects commis- 
sioned from some of these archi- 
tects have been interpreted in their 
proper urban and social context. 

The writing of Colin Rowland 
the writing and drawing of the 
Luxembourg brothers. Leon and 
Rob Krier. have had an enormous 
impact on the way that practising 
architects have reappraised the 
symbolism and comparative sta- 
tus of various public buildings.

'"“Ii. aod three unbuilt 
projots by the acknowledged 
^ard^earers of contan- 
poraiy British architecture, 
the. Royal Academy and the

nevertheless performed a 
. valuable public service. 

* Because the exhibition wall 
not only introduce their work 
te , ® wider audience than 
hitherto, but raise public 

understanding of the unavoid- 
able art. In the long term, 
greater awareness and debate 
can only lift the overall quality 
of the built environment from 
its increasingly sterile depths. 

The three built projects — 
Foster’s Hongkong Bank, 
Rogers’ Lloyd's of London 
headquarters and Stirling's 
Stuttgan StaatsgaJerie - are 
secular temples to Mammon 
and culture. Each reflects in its 
own terms the architect's re- 
sponse to a specific brief, 

: locati on a nd type of patronage 
— the first two buildings being 
largely in the gift of the Royal 
Institute of British Architects. 

There are other common 
denominators in their shared 
belief in the role which single 
buildings play in widely differ- 
ing urban contexts; in creating 
public realms, or in Rogers' 
term, “people places", largely 
denied an opportunity to 
flourish unless the client's 
brief is extended; and, of 
course,- in celebrating the dy- 
namic possibilities afforded 
by modern materials and 
methods. 

In terms of stylistic ex- 
pression, Foster and Rogers 
adopt slick engineering meter 
phors to ■ enrich what are 
disarmingly simple concepts 
about how human activities 


P™*- JSJJ* ^ Foster’s 
bank, £500-million, at £5,000 
a square metre the most 
expensive building in the 
world. In the case of Rogers’ 
Boyd's, £ 163-million, -^at 
£3,000 a square metre, the 
most expensive in Britain. 

Both works represent hard 
acts to follow, although 


American Robert Venturi, 
while the British- architect 
built an extension to the Fogg 
Museum at Harvard. 

Whether Stirling's scheme 
would have been better it is 
impossible, as yet, to say; and 
there is always a danger of 
■ being chauvinistic lor hs own 
sake. 

Rogers has chosen, wisely, 
not to exhibit either his com- 
petition entry for the gallery 
site, nor his plan for budding a 
massive development at Coin 
Street on London's South 
Bank. London is a better place 
for neither being built and 
there is always a temptation to 
be carried along with the hype 
of such a show as this into 
believing in the infallibility of 
any architect’s work. 


Leading architects 
produce their best 
work abroad 

Foster’s abandoned new radio 
headquarters for the BBC, for 
the Langham Hotel site op- 
posite Broadcasting House in 
London, shows that again we 
have been robbed by extrane- 
ous forces of a first-class 
building. 

Foster’s scheme, which 
would have linked All Soul's 
Nash's church at Langham 
Place, to Cavendish Square, 
fell victim to a short-term 
accountancy deal which will 
mean abandoning the key ate 
for a 16‘Anacre alternative at 
White Gty. 

Five years’ work has gone 
down the drain although some 
of its lessons are being trans- 
ferred to the post-earthquake 
Televisa building in Mexico 
City, in the shadows of the 
Aztec Stadium. 

Overseas clients continue to 
keep Foster busy, in New 
York, San Francisco, Frank- 
furt, Nancy and Niroes, many 
only a short flight away in the 
firm’s eight-seat Cessna Cita- 
tion. . Meanwhile, Britain 
seems content for its leading 
architects to produce their 
best work abroad. 

Stirling’s unbuilt project is 
his design for the National 
Gallery extension in Trafalgar 
Square, ironically awarded to 


There is this tendency too in - w .- - • 
Deyan Sudjic’s beautifully 
illustrated, if wordy, book s' : ~ . 

(Thames and Hudson, £1 0.50) 
which accompanies the 
exhibition. 

Even the best architects, 
and their optimistic use of 
technology in the service of 
their art. have their 
limitations. 

Apart from Foster’s aborted 
BBC plan, another unbuilt 
project will be put on display 
for the first time at the Royal 
Academy: Rogers' scheme for 
a new bridge over the Thames, 
m the manner of medieval 
London Bridge and the Ponte 
Veccbio in Florence: 

It should provoke some 
lively discussion and bring 
into focus once more the 
capital's most-neglected asset 

Nothing would be more 
appropriate as the upshot of 
this exhibition than new 
commissions for Foster, Rog- 
ers and Stirling in their home 
country. They could start with 
a joint commission to produce 
a strategic plan and new 
buildings for Thameside Lon- 
don as a whole, and the way it 
relates to the capital's existing 
urban set-pieces, almost exclu- 
sively of Victorian creation. 

The Prime Minis ter herself 
might consider potting into 
effect such a study to prove, if 
nothing else, that her concern 
for design does not exclude the 
vision of three of the country's 
most avant-garde architects.

Reflections; Richard Rogers with his design for the linking

A stylish facelift 
for London 


As London goes through a 
budding boom as large as the 
post-blitz development de- 
scribed by Lord Esher, and 
largely sparred on by the Big 
Bang deregulation of the Stock 
Exchange later this month, it 
is not surprising that this is 
« here (he most significant 
projects are to be found. 

Terry Farrell, as Britain's 
most fashionable architect 
outside the Foster- Rogtxs- 
Srirling trinity, has the lion's 
share of the work. with his 
proposals for improving the 
visually impoverished South 
Bank arts complex, 
reconstr u c ti n g the area above 
and around Charing Cross 
station and replacing one of 
the 1960$ office toner block 
eyesores along London Wall 
with something resembling an 
art-deco jukebox. 

In the redevelopment plan 
for Spitalfieids Market, 
bordering the City. Richard 
McConnac has shown that it 
is possible to insert a £200 
million scheme which is likely 
to work well at street level at 
least, if not so well in elevation 
when seen from a distance. 

Jeremy Dixon's masterly 
plan for the extension and 
modernization of the Royal 
Opera House, Covent Garden, 
unveiled to the public last 
week, is an enlightened re- 
sponse to its revitalized 
surroundings. The temptation 
for a gross overdevelopment of 
the available sites was rightly 
eschewed bv his client. 


Some of this new-found 
sensitivity to the urban fabric 
might jet rub off. one hopes, 
on the gargantuan plans for 
Canary Wharf, in London 
Docklands, which has met 
with less than rolal approval 
from the Docklands Planning 
Board.. 

It is tragic lhat the capital 
should have lost what would 
have been Norman Foster's 
contribution to the Renais- 
sance of urban design with the 
abandonment or his £100 mil- 
lion BBC plan fnr Langham 
Place. 100 yards north of 
Oxford Cirrus. Bui his Ideas 
are on public show for the first 
time at the exhibition. 

It is essential that the Royal 
Academv's show and the host 
of related events should be 
seen for what it is: a celebra- 
tion of all that is best in 
contemporary British 
architecture and which is un- 
doubtedly now tbr best in the 
world. 

Stylistic debate about the 
comparative merits of hi-tech 
or post-modernism or even 
classical revival architecture 
are enjoyable for the partici- 
pants, but in the end is likely 
to exclude the social argu- 
ments which should go with it. 

Architecture is, as Sir De- 
nys Lasdun reminds ns, the 
social art, and to discuss it 
merely in terms of objets start 
is to do everyone a grave dis- 
service.

NEW ARCHITECTURE/3 


FOCUS 


The City of 
new shapes 


Traditionally, a week has not 
been considered a long time in 
design, except for young fash- 
ions, and certainly not in 
property development — but 
things axe changing rapidly. 

Only two years ago passions 
were roused over a proposal to 
build a glass-and-sied struc- 
ture, conceived in the 1960s, 
on a site which was to be 
cleared of an assortment of 
listed and unlisted Victorian 
buildings to make way for 
both the tower and a new 
square in which it was to be 
set 

In the 1960s such clearances 
and replacements happened 
all the time, all over the 
country, resulting in what is 
now generally seen as a plan- 
ning and architectural 
catastrophe. 


Corporation's planning 
committee, Michael Cassidy, 
says: “We did not get the first 
planning application for a 
modem dealing floor until last 
summer” 


Since last summer everyone 
has been working overtime to 
make up for the late start But 
the very lateness is a sharp 
reminder of bow conservative 
developers — and in some 
cases even more so their 
professional advisers — can 
be. After all, last autumn a 
firm of surveyors. Richard 
Ellis, was suggesting that the 
Big Bang demand peak had 
already been passed; and this 
before the City had a single 
proper dealing room even 
under construction.

Making up for 
a late start 
with overtime 


Yet, two years on, one must 
reflect that the battle of Man- 
sion House Square has been 
fought not so much on spuri- 
ous grounds as on irrelevant 
ones. The Mies van der Rohe 
tower, so tenaciously cham- 
pioned by Peter Palumbo, 
may have survived its first 20 
years on the drawing board - 
but not the last two. For City 
purposes, its design, whatever 
its aesthetic or historic merit, 
has suddenly become utterly 


pass# because of the necessity 
to incorporate new-technof- 


to incorporate new-technof- 
ogy equipment in modem 
buildings. 

Applications to cater for 
this in contemporary office 
buildings have only recently 
been submitted. For example, 
the chairman of the City 


The final straw was a little- 
known event, or rather series 
of events, which happened to 
an American developer, G. 
Ware Travelstead. He arrived 
in the City more than five 
years ago with the brief of 
finding a new home for Credit 
Suisse/ First Boston, whose 
operations, like those of so 
many leading City financial 
institutions, are scattered over 
many different buildings 
through lack of space: 

Mr Travelstead found a row 
of listed buildings fronting 
Bishopsgafe and sought per- 
mission to gut and rebuild 
modem dealing rooms behind 
the facades. He was told that 
keeping the facades would not 
suffice: the front rooms of the 
listed buildings would also 
need to be kept, and only 
behind them could modem 
accommodation be provided. 
Mr Travelstead was near de- 
spair. Then he discovered that 
just east of the City was an 
area where the UK planning 
system does not operate: the

Isle of Dogs Enterprise Zone. 

Despite repeated denials, 
there can be no doubt that the 
prospect of Canary Wharf has 
had a profound influence on 
planning in the City. It may 
not have -affected the way 
Michael Chssidy thinks - but 
it must have influenced bis 
rise to dominance over other 
politicians, and more es- 
pecially over the former City 
architect. Stuart Murphy. 

Mr Murphy had ruled City 
developments with a rod of 
iron for many years, dictating 
some rather strange conserva- 
tionist policies — he is said at 
one point to have su&ested 
listing the streaky grey con- 


crete towers alongside London 
Wall, several of which are now 
coming down to make way for 
more suitable designs and 
interiors. 

Then he retired this sum- 
mer and was replaced by a 
more flexible personality. 

This bodes well for the 
many schemes awaiting plan- 
ning approval. 

Some of them illustrate 
another lesson learned from 
the Canary Wharf phenom- 
enon. This is that, though 
space within the Square Mile 
itself will always be limited, 
there is ample scope for 
spreading the City in all 
directions. If Salomom Broth- 
ers are prepared to operate 


from Victoria (where Heery 
International have just com- 
pleted for them Europe's big- 
gesi dealing floor In the former 
atrium space), surely interest 


Sweeping changes 
would be 
strongly resisted 


should be spreading to cover 
areas like Fleet Street and 
Holbum, the South Bank, 
Billingsgate and Spitalfidds? 
It is. i 

Happily, this means that a 
.new relationship can be forged 
between development and 
conservation. The City has 22 


conservation areas and 450 
listed structures, most in what 
is called the inner core. De- 
spite the generally changed 
attitudes, sweeping changes 
here would be strongly re- 
sisted. .What has been loos- 
ened are controls in the 
periphery. 

These have so far mani- 
fested themselves mainly in 
non-headlme-grabbing -efforts 
such as adding “phases" to 
existing developments, most 
notably Broadgate (now well 
on its way to phase V)- and 
Finsbury Avenue. 

Far more intriguing are the 
plans awaiting consideration 
for the replacemen i of ob- 
solete 1960s buildings with 


new ones constructed with the 
right column-free floorspaces 
and generous floor-to-ceiling 
requirements of modern 
financial occupiers. 

The first of several applica- 
tions to be approved for 
bridging over London Wall in 
this way will be a milestone in 
the City's architectural his- 
tory. The next challenge will 
then be to get the construction 

side managed wen enough to 
have space available in time to 
compete with Canary Wharf; 
ie. some time in 1988-89. 
Stuart Upton, a London 
developer, has demonstrated 
that this is possible, with 
amazing' speed at Broadgate 


through fast track methods 
with US imported knowhow. 

What will the City look like 
in 10 years" time? It will 
cenainlv be bigger than it is 
todav. with 20 million square 
feet of additional commerical 
floorspace planned For. and 
will probably have far looser 
boundary definitions. 

Already top sites, such as 
Spilalficlds (where several 
developers have seen thc_ light 
— or the potential profits — 
and are completing heavily) 
are subject to planning control 
not by the City Corporation 
but by neighbouring councils, 
in this case Tower Hamlets.

The shattered dream, 
the stone compromise 


In 1962 the 26-year-old son of 
a property developer asked the 
Germ an- American architect 
Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, 50 
years his senior, to design a 
scheme for a City site he did 
not own. ' 

As the youngster. Peter 
Palumbo, had long been an 
admirer of the great Modern- 
ist the old man, then working 
in the US, accepted the 
commission. As bis pan of the 
bargain, Mr Palumbo began to 
acquire the site feeing the 
Bank of England, the Mansion 
House and the Guardian 
Royal Exchange. 

It was a fragmented site 
made up of 13 freeholds and 
34$ leaseholds. But Mr 
Palumbo was encouraged in 
bis property-buying 
endeavour by an approval in 
principle of his scheme given 
in 1969, the year of Mies's 
death, by the City planners, 
subject to his acquiring the 
site.

By 1982, 20 years after he 
began buying. Mr Palumbo 
had only one freehold and 
three leases left to acquire and 
applied again for planning 
-consent as the previous ap- 
proval in principle had long 
since la psed 

But the City's appetite for 
modern architecture had also 
lapsed; concern for cooserva- 

The confrontation 
between Modems 
and everyone else 

lion was in the ascendant. The 
City refused consent and was 
backed by the Greater London 
Council and conservation and 
amenity interests. 

Two years later the entire 
affair, which had since been 
blown up by the architectural " 
press as the great confronta- 
tion between Modern 
Architecture and the Rest of 
the World, was played out in 
front of a government plan- 
ning inquiry inspector, Ste- 
phen Marks. 

Mr Marks had to spend 
much of the summer in the 
gloomy Guildhall listening to 
often highly emotional and 
highly conflicting evidence 
from, among others, a ver- 
itable who’s who of 
architecture. 

His judgement, however, 
was not to be douded and the 


Environment Secretary (then 
Patrick Jenkin) endorsed his 
conclusion: the present 

Victoriana she was not good 
enough to resist all redevelop- 
ment — but Mies's glass-and- 
steel tower was out of place, 
out of harmony and out 
altogether. 

Mr Palumbo wasted no 
time. Within weeks of the 
inquiry decision, he commis- 
sioned James Stirling, the 
internationally femed archi- 
tect, to produce plans using 
the same amount of space in a 
totally different format. The 
resulting two schemes, re- 
named No I Poultry, were 
presented to the City planners 
this summer. 

One of the options, winch 
retains the Mappin & Webb 
facade, has been favoured by 
fee Royal Fine Ait Commis- 
sion and, grudgingly, English 
Heritage. - 

Mr Palumbo's original glass 
dream was shattered more 
than 20 years after its incep- 
tion. His stone compromise 
should be approved in a 
matter of weeks.

Hosby House 

In fee Focus feature on Energy 
In The Home (August 22), a 
picture of a Hosby House was 
wrongly described as a 
Stepnell Home. 


A good indication of how 
London's Docklands has be- 
come the place to be is that 
two buildings completed only 
two years ago are now can- 
didates for demolition and 
replacement with larger, more 
ambitious structures. 

. Limehouse Studios, a clever 
warehouse conversion by 
Terry Farrell, has already been 
earmarked to make way for 
the giant Canary Wharf 
scheme. Now the former 
Olsen warehouses on MillwaD 
Dock are threatened wife a £7 
million conversion by a devtrt- 
oper who wants to replace 
them wife 7QO.QOO square feet 
of offices. 

The past five years m 
Docklands have been more 
than just a success stoiy. Tins 
long-derelict area, until re- 
cently likened by Reg Ward, 
chief executive of the London 
Docklands Development 
Corporation, to a salt mine in 
terms of its attraction for fee 
property developer, is now fee 
prime development area in 
London, it is having a notable 
effect on the rest of fee 
capital’s fortunes. 

Whether the Docklands re- 
vival has been led by commer- 
cial or residential 
development is a chicken-and- 
egg question. But fee results 
would have been thought 
inconceivable when the 
LDDC was created in 1981. 

At that time it was a 
rundown area which had suf- 
fered from the ineffective 
control of its local boroughs 
since the war. The LDDC was 
vested wife 400 acres on 
which 95 per cent of the 
people rented their homes 
from fee council. 

“No one in their right mind 
would buy a house here,” was 
fee common wisdom, as was 
“No one would want an office 
here or a modern factory”. 
These myths have been ex- 
ploded. but it was not easy. It 
took a consortium of top 
housebuilders to dare to begin 

Demand beating 
supply almost 
dangerously 

a 600-unit private develop- 
ment at Beckton, just north of 
the Royal Docks. 

Five years on, almost 7,500 
homes in Docklands are com- 
plete or underway and de- 
mand is outstripping supply 
almost dangerously. 

Wapping is fee most popu- 
lar area. It is best off for 
transport and nearest to fee 
Gty. Development land here 
-is now almost non-existent 
and house-builders are 
prospecting for small sites as 
though they were gold. 

Single acres are said to have 
been sold for well over £1 
million and individual prop- 
erties are priced from 
£400,000 down to about 
£40,000, wife only single- 
bedroom flats still at first-time 
buyer prices. 

The pride of Docklands, 
and of fee LDDC is the Isle of 
Dogs Enterprise Zone, easily 


the most prosperous of all 
zones. It was because of the 
special features of these areas, 
particularly the freedom from 
most planning procedures, 
feat Mr G. Ware Travebtead 
decided to go for Canary 
Wharf in fee first place, 
having despaired of City plan- 
ners. 

. When he put bis £2 billion 
proposals to fee LDDC be bad 
only one condition: work 
must begin quickly to allow 
fee first buildings to be occu- 
pied in 1988-9. This apparent- 
ly innocent condition had 
several implications. 

It meant feat any planning 
delays would cause him to pull 
oul And feat, because his 
scheme depended on extend- 


ing the Docklands Light Rail- 
way from its planned terminus 
at Tower Hill into the heart of 
the Gty. the enabling legisla- 
tion had to be secured. 

He had to fight for both, 
fortunately wife the full back- 
ing of the LDDC. which sees 
Canary Wharf as the jew! in 
its crown. It now looks as if 
both conditions are being met. 

Doubts have been expressed 
about the usefulness of enter- 
prise zones as few of them 
outside London have had any 
success other than at the 
expense of beggaring nearby 
areas. However, the idea of 
urban development corpora- 
tions such as fee LDDC. and 
fee one on Merseyside, is 



London docklands chief ex- 
ecutive Reg Ward: the prime 
development area in London 

thought to have been 
worthwhile. 

Certainly fee LDDC has 
been able to break a 20-year 
deadlock. 


Last month, the man who 
“invented” fee LDDC. Mi- 
chael Heselline. spoke at the 
launch of a £65 million 
scheme for a largely derelict 
site east of Millwall Docks, to 
be called the Brunei Centre. 

He said: “i cannot under- 
stand why the Government 
continues to delay in bringing 
the same opportunities which 
have revived fee East End of 
London to decaying parts of 
Britain's provincial inheri- 
tance. 

“The Government should 
now build on its own success 
by announcing the next 
tranche of urban-development 
corporations.”

Enrichment 

Through 

Pilkington 

Glass 

For more than a century, glass has been a 
key factor in the creation of new architectural 
concepts. 

And throughout, Pilkington has provided 
the innovation,the incentive. the inspiration. 

Tbday, Pilkington Glass is at the forefront 
of buildingdesign.Theirproduct range gives 
architects the freedom to express creativity, 
the performance to meet environmental 
conditions, the features to enrich the quality 
of life. 

It is therefore apposite that Pilkington 
Glass should be a co-sponsor of the Royal 
Academy's exhibition of new architecture. 

After all, life without Pilkington glass... 
in today's world, it’s unthinkable.

New 

Architecture 

AT THE ROYAL ACADEMY OF ARTS. 

We’re delighted that the Royal Academy of Arts has taken the 
initiative in staging the ‘New Architecture’ event 

It's recognition that British architects lead the world in many 
aspects of design; a fact that we at British Gypsum have good reason 
to be aware of. 

Architects with the foresight of Foster, Rogers and Stirling make 
imaginative and innovative use of our gypsum-based materials for 
walls, ceilings and partitions, in all forms of building. 

They rely on British Gypsum's high performance in thermal 
and sound insulation and fire protection. 

As long as Britain has the talent, British Gypsum will proride 
the products and technical support that puts New Architecture on 
exhibition everywhere. 

NATURALLY, IT HAS OUR FULL SUPPORT,

Between the wars he worked 
in an issuing office in the City, 
where he learned much oi 
business method. He also met 
there Norman Crockatt. who 
in December. 1939. was ap- 
pointed first head of Ml*?. 

Crockatt invited Rail to 
join his personal staff, but had 
no vacancy for a major. Ratt 
was selfless enough to take a 
captain's appointment, and 
rapidly proved his worth. 

For over a year he worked 
in the sub-branch (later hived 
off as MI 1 9) which interrogat- 
ed enemv prisoners-of-war. In 
1943. when Crockatt was 
made a deputy dinretor of

Science report 

New hope 
for curbing 
pollution 

By a Special Correspondent 

An improved method of | 
removing dangerous metals that 
seep into rivers and undergroBad 
water sources has been devel- 
oped in research commissioned 
by tbe United States Bureau of ! 
Mines. 

The scientists claim to have 
foond a new way of removing 
toxic heavy metals from tbe 
huge amounts of dilute waste 
solutions by a process that is Hu- 
more efficient than any available 
scheme. It also produces much 
smaller quantities of poisonous 
sludge. 

Moreover, its use could reduce 
Ute quantities of tone heavy 
metals discharged into the 
environment and encourage the 
extraction of such metals for re- 
use. 

Industrial activities involving 
materials such as chromium or 
nickel in plating operations. J 
which produce enormous qoanti- j 
ties of very dilute solutions, 
could be improved. 

A similar claim is made for 
the activities which produce 
other harmful metals including 
lead, cadmium, manganese and 
z inc . Once waste solutions 
containing such metals have 
been discharged into drains and 
waterways it is virtually impos- 
sible to reclaim the metals. A 
standard technique used today 
to reclaim heavy metals from 
solution is to precipitate them 
with lime, but this has serious 
drawbacks. 

The metal oxides produced by 
neutralization of acid solutions 
with the lime may not settle 
sufficiently to produce a dean 
enough effluent for discharge 
without further treatment The 
resulting large quantities of 
toxic sludge are expensive to 
handle and treat to extract the 
metals for re-use. 

The Bureau of Mines has 
been experimenting with other 
techniques and has achieved 
good results nsing magnesium 
oxide. Only a quarter as mud) 
toxic sludge is produced. 
Magnesium oxide is also more 
effective titan lime at re m ovi ng 
suspended fine solids Cram 
Solution- 

Two experimental filter beds 
were bnflt to test the technique. 
One used three small columns in 
series filled with 05mm granu- 
lar magnesium oxide. The other 
used a single column one meter 
height filled with the same 
form of magnesium oxide. Both 
beds were tested by synthetic 
effluent containing IQ metals in 
solution: copper, cadmium, iron, 
cobaft, chromium, manganese, 
nickel, lead, zinc and 

Tests showed that both beds 
were effective In removing both 
dissolved metals and suspended 
solids, showing the tedmiqae 
could purify waste water in a 


Muharrem Nuri Birgi, who 
died in Istanbul on September 
30 al the age of 78. had a 
distinguished career in 
Turkey's foreign service as 
secretary-genera] at the Minis^ 
try of Foreign Affairs from 
1954 io 1957, and as ambassa- 
dor in London from 1957 to 
1960. 

These years covered acute 
stages of the Cyprus question 
which might have endangered 
relations between Turkey and 
ihe United Kingdom, but 
which was resolved (for the 
lime being) in the London and 
Zilrich agreements, giving in- 
dependence to Cyprus with 
safeguards for the Turkish 
inhabitants. 

This result owed not a hole 
to Biroi's persuasive diploma- 
cy and his friendship with a 
wide range of British 
personalities. 

After bis time in London, he 
was appointed Turkey's per- 
manent representative to 
Nato, first in Paris then in 
Brussels, where he remained 
until bis retirement in 1973. 
He was a skilful and powerful 
representative of his country - 
profoundly convinced _ of 


Turkey’s place in the western 
world, not as a mere copy 1 ot 
the West, bui making a specif- 
ic contribution. 

He devoted his remaining 
years io iwo consuming inter- 
ests. One was the promotion 
of understanding of ihe Atlan- 
tic alliance in Turkey’ and 
throughout the member 
states, which he did as chair- 
man of the Turkish Atlantic 
Treaty Association and. from 
1979 to 19S2. as president of 
the International Atlantic 
Treatv Association. 

The other was the rc-crc- 
ation at Salacak above the 
Bosporus of an old house 
which he had acquired in 
ruinous condition and re- 
stored as an almost perfect 
specimen of Ottoman domes- 
tic architecture and 
decoration. 

It became a meeting place 
for friends and acquaintances, 
where they could absorb not 
only timeless elements of 
Turkish civilisation, but also 
an acute and sometimes pro- 
vocative account of contem- 
porary events. 

His only marriage was dis- 
solved. 


MISS RUTH FRENCH 


Ruth French, a notable 
dancer in the 1920s and 1930s, 
who later became an equally 
distinguished teacher, died on 
September 27. She admitted 
to being 80. 

Bora in London, she stud- 
ied ballet with several Russian 
teachers who were working in 
Britain, notably Ivan Qustine, 
who worked with Anna 
Pavlova. 

Ruth French first appeared 
on stage in children's plays, 
then became for four-and-a- 
half years principal dancer at 
the London Hippodrome, per- 
forming in a series of success- 
ful revues- One of her 
outstanding hits was the title 
part in a ballet The Jackdaw of 
Rheimsr, she played it at 603 
consecutive performances in 
London and toured with it 
She was twice chosen for 
Royal Command 

frformances. 

In 1928, Miss French was 


engaged by Pavlova as a 
principal dancer for her tours 
of South America, Egypt, In- 
dia. the Malay States. Java 
.and Australia. She took the 
lead in works in which the star 
did not appear. 

Although her dancing career • 
continued after Pavlova's 
death, mainly in revues and 
musicals, she was one of the 
established dancers who per- 
formed for the Camargo Soci- 
ety. which helped the infant 
companies of Ninette de Va- 
lois and Marie Rambert to 
establish themselves. She also 
danced as guest star with the 
Vic-Wells Ballet, playing 
Odile in Swan Lake when 
Margot Fonteyn made her 
first appearance as Odette. 

Miss French had her own 
dancing school and became 
one of the most respected 
examiners of the Royal Acade- 
my of Dancing which in 1972 
honoured her with its annual 
Queen Elizabeth II Award.

made his successful d£but, at 
the early age of 21, with the 
novel // Ragazzo Morto e le 
Cometei J95 1), translated into 
English in the following year 
as The Dead Bov and the 
Comets. 

Most critics have seen this 
as his outstanding achieve- 
ment in fiction. Its theme, like 
that of its successor. La Gran- 
de Vacanza (1953), “The 
Great Emptiness", is adoles- 
cence, but adolescence seen 
from a sophisticated, death- 
haunted and extremely sensu- 
al point of view. These two 
novels are best classed as 


magic realism; the framework 
is realistic, but the events are 
unnatural and grotesque, and 
are rendered with expression- 
'Stic or sometimes even surre- 
alistic zeal. 

However, Parise’s later 
manner was much more 
straightforwardly realistic. 
Thus his best {mown novel 
outside his own country - and 
the most popular within it - is 
// Prcte Bello (1954), outstand- 
ingly translated in 1955 by 
Stuart Hood as Don Gastone 
and the Ladies. This is a comic 
novel about an unworthy' 
priest, and there is consider? 
able feeling in its satirical; 
denunciation of the religious , 
or, rather, pseudo-religious J 
practices of his native region. >

a more convincing return to 
his earlier modernism. i • 
Panse was an outstanding 
journalist, whose early prom- 
ise as an imaginative writer 
was noL perhaps, wholly ful- 
filled. But. besides his fine first 
novel, he left in The Boss a

In political terms. Top Gun is a 
great deal more scary than any- 
thing on the foreign pages. It 
represents the peak of Hollywood 
technical accomplishment, the 
collaborative effort of an army of 
specialists, from model-makers, 
pyrotechnicians and astro vision 
operators to aerospace corpora- 
tions and the US Naval Air Force. 
For four months it has remained a 
top box-office attraction in the 
United Stales, wife gross income 
so far conservatively estimated at 
S80m. It may therefore be safely 
supposed to reflect or to direct the 
sentiments of a vast mass of 
American teenagers. 

The film is a celebration of the 
American Navy’s fighter weapons 
school at Miramar, California, 
where the country’s best pilots are 


trained to fly the Navy’s supreme 
weapon, the F-14 fighter, in aerial 
combat. The pilots, says the film’s 
producer Jerry Bruckheimer, “are a 
combination of Olympic athletes 
in the sky and rock V roll heroes’'. 
The film shows them to be equally 
aggressive in the air, in their 
competitive concern to shine in 
school and in their pursuit of sex. 
The thrill of flying is infectiously 
conveyed, and the excitement is 
overtly identified with sexual 
stimulation. These heroes and then- 
way of life must be irresistible to 
thejuvetrile audience. 

They are, says the publicity 
information, “not unlike the gun- 
slingers of the Wild West, except 
that these aerial cowboys roam the 
range keeping the peace, and most 
can fire a heal-seeklng missile 
faster than an outlaw can get the 
gun from his hokier". “Keeping 
the peace" is a questionable 
description. The climactic scene 
{wonderfully shot and edited) 
shows our heroes shooting down 
half a dozen MiG fighters, for no 
very good reason except that they 
have met them over die Indian 
Ocean. (The only reassuring aspect 
is that our lads have very effective 
missiles while the Russian aircraft 
appear to counter with air-rifles.) 

It is taken for granted throughout 
that there is an enemy (identified in 
the film by the MiG aircraft and in 
the publicity material as “an 
Eastern Bloc adversary"). Or- 
dinary, unsophisticated young 
Americans — who must make np 
the largest part of the audience — 
can be forgiven for assuming from 
films like this that the Western 
allies are already in a state of all-out 
war with the Soviet Union. It is a 


very dangerous assumption, parti- 
cularly when the business of war is 
presented, as it is here, with such 
dazzling glamour. 

The film no doubt has total 
official approval: the credits in- 
dude a Government Relations 
officer and several men from Navy 
Public Affairs; and the flying scenes 
could not have been accomplished 
without massive collaboration 
from the Navy. The whole exercise 
was coordinated by a British 
director. Tony Scott (brother -of 
Ridley Scott), who started his 
career with an anti-war parable. 
One of the Missing, made for the 
British Film Institute. 

The Good Father. MikeNeweTTs 
first film since Dance With a 
Stranger, is adapted by Chris- 
topher Hampton from a novel by 
Peter Prince, and remains a novel 
in its progression and feeling, 
without generating much real cine- 
matic dynamism. It is a painful tale 
of broken marriages, the phase of 
the sex-war that follows the 
women's movement, and ordinary 
human bitterness and resentment. 

Anthony Hopkins plays a 
graphic designer whose wife has a 
new lover. He meets a fellow 
victim (Jim Broadbem) who is also 
isolated from his wife and child, 
though in his case the wife's new 
lover is a woman. The Hopkins 
character vicariously vents his own 
bitterness by pushing his new ally 
to use the law to wrest his child 
from its mother. Both men grad- 
ually come to realize the shame of 
using the wiles of the law and the 
prejudice of judges to torment frail 
humans. As they work out their 
problems and their destinies. Hop- 


kins begins to understand that fee 
breakdown of his marriage lies 
more in his own inability to adjust 
to the changes wrought in fee 
relationship by fee birth of fee 
child than in fee short-lived rival 
lover. 

Hopkins is a fine actor wife a 
perilous tendency to excess, which 
shows up worst on the screen. 
Newell tends to scale fee other 
performances to matching over- 
acting: Jim Broadbem’s daft good 
nature. Harriet Walter's private 
sorrow. Miriam Maigolyes's mili- 
tant feminism and Simon Callow's 
courtroom mischief are all a good 
deal overdone. Joanne Whalley has 
a better role as fee younger woman 
who has a brief and (for her at least) 
bewildering (ling wife fee com- 
plicated hero. The setting - a run- 
down suburban London of shabby 
flats wife garbage sacks stinking 
outside the doors — is often more 
convincing than the inhabitants. 

Andrtr Techine’s Rendez-vons is 
a weird and colourful fanago about 
obsessive sexuality. Nina (Juliet 
Binoche) comes to Paris and gets 
into very complex relationships 
wife a young man from the 
apartment agency and his crazed 
and suicidal flat-mate Quentin 
(Lambert Wilson). When Quentin 
kills himself, Jean-Louis Trin- 
tignant appears from out of his 
past, to make Nina play Juliet as a 
reincarnation of his own dead 
daughter. The ghost of Quentin, 
who was the dead mil's Romeo as 
well as her husband, returns to try 
to stop her perfor ma nce: It all ends 
unexpectedly in mediae res, but not 
before a very odd love-scene which 
involves a lot of spitting. It must be

some strange after-effect from 
Techine’s 1979 flirtation wife Lcs 
Soeurs Bronte. 

Good to Go is a writer-director 
debut in which Blaine Novak tries 
to do everything at once — com- 
bining go-go musical numbers, 
sociological reflections on fee 
“black underclass" of Washington 
D.C. and the classic old romantic- 
fataJist plot about the innnocent 
kid who falls in with a bad lot (a 
destructive gang of delinquents) 
with tragic outcome. 

There is a further sub-plot about 


the efforts of a musical group to 
make the big time, with the British 
impresario Michael White playing 
a British impresario. It is rather 
hard to know whether this charac- 
ter. with his grand airs of patronage 
and his Holljwood swimming 
pool, is meant to be a good guy or 
another nr the exploiters. The black 
souths and black music arc lively; 
but An Garfunkcl is embarrass- 
ingly silly as a boozy dead-beat 
hack who suddenly discovers a 
tragically ineffectual social con- 
science.

Onefor fee future: model of Rogers’s Thames footbridge 



By general consent we have in 
Britain many of fee most 
hideous buildings of the post- 
war era. And yet we have 
some of the world’s best 
architects. Who says? Why, 
fee rest of the world, of course: 
you have only to think of fee 
number of major com- 
' petitions won, and major 
buildings built, in foreign 
parts by British architects 
during these same dreary 
years at home, and the irony 
of the prophet without honour 
asserts itself with peculiar 
force. 

It is only to be expected, in 
the circumstances, that fee 
most .famous buildings by the 
three British architects cele- 
brated' in' the Royal Acad-, 
emy's show New Architecture: 
Foster ; Rogeirs. ' Stirling (until

Rogers has chosen to look 
more towards the future: 
though there is a feature on fee

programmes devoted entirely 
to his own music; at fee 
Wigmore Hall the first half 


best advantage, and Stirling is 
introduced by a full-scale 
mock-up of a section of the 
Staatsgalerie’s colpurfiilly var- 


iegated outer wall. Again. 
Rogers is the odd man out: his 
vision of future London is 
conveyed through a large 
model just left to speak for 
itself unaided by anything 
much more theatrical than fee 
gallery’s natural top-lighL 
Which is all well and good, 
but to make any sensible 
judgement you really have to 
see the buildings themselves, 
in their own undoctored 
environment. In Hong Kong I 
find fee Foster building dis- 
appointingly stumpy, for all 
its giant size, beta use the 
width related to fee height 
changes one's sense of propor- 
tion, and fee dwarfing bulk of 
fee Peak right behind does not 
help. Stirling’s Stuttgart gal- 
lery, on fee other hand, looks a 
lot better in fact than in 


pictures: more sensitive to us 
surroundings, respecting but 
not grovelling to them, and as 
a place to show art it functions 
very well. The Pompidou 
Centre certainly docs not age 
well, either aesthetically or in 
terms of physical upkeep, but 
presumably the Lloyds build- 
ing. less extreme in its treat- 
ment, will not suffer too much 
from the same problems. 

Just at present, because of 
their Post-modern overtones. 
Stirling's designs look the 
most timely, whereas the lat- 
est Rogers and Fosters look a 
bit faded and old-fashioned. 
Bui such are lime's whirligigs 
that in a few more years all 
that may be reversed, and 
such elegant manipulations of 
the discredited International 
Style as fee sleek box in which 
Foster has housed the Sains- 
bury Centre will become again 
fee dernier cri. Meanwhile, 
there is a lot that is more or 
less agreeable, and more or 
less fitted to its function, but 
little. I fear, that really catches 
the imagination. 


The other surprise was the to his own music; at fee

tup TIMES FRIDAY OCTOBER 3 1966 


Teachers’ 


By Susan MacDonald 
in Dinan and 
Michael McCarthy 
in London 


Two British teachers found 
bound and shot dead in Brit- 
tany this week may have been 
the victims of a murderer who 
has already killed another 
holiday couple. 

Police in Dinan, south of St 
Mala were last night awaiting 
positive identification of the 
bodies fonnd in a shallow 
grave outside the town. Pri- 
vately they are certain they are 
those of a Norfolk couple 
missing in France since Au- 
gust, Paul Bellion, 30, and 
Lorraine Glasby. 29. 

The investigation into the 
killings was handed over by 
the local gendarmerie yes- 
terday to the Brittany regional 
crime squad, based in Rennes, 
because of possible links with 
an earlier unsolved murder 
near Dinan. 

Seven years ago a Belgian 
couple were found shot dead in 
the countryside on the other 
side of the town. 

The badly decomposed bod- 
ies of Mr Bellion and Miss 
Glasby were found bound and 
gagged and tied together and 
early examination indicated 
they had been shot. 

Cartridges from a hunting 
rifle were found lying on them. 
“The scene resembled an 
execution,*" said one police 
source. Another police officer 
said: “ft is apparent that a 
cold-blooded killer is at 
large." 

More than 1,000 school- 
children mourned the two 
teachers at morning assembly 
yesterday. 

The heads of the Rosemary 
Musker High School in Thet- 
ford, where Liverpool-born Mr 
Bellion taught woodwork and 
of Diss High School. 20 miles 
away, where Miss Glasby was 
a craft teacher, broke the news 
to their pnpiis simultaneously. 

Mr Brian Torn bolt head- 
master at Diss, said: “The 
whole school is saddened and 
shocked by the news from 
France. We grieve with the 
parents of Lorraine and Paul 
at their loss which we ail 
share." 

Mr Bellion and Miss 
Glasby, who shared a cottage 
home, set off for a cycling 
holiday in France on August I 
hot after two weeks in a rented 
farmhouse near La Rochelle 
they failed to take up a ferry 
reservation from St Malo on 
August 26.

Threats go 
against 
the grain 


.As ihe official party began 
to move away from the me- 
morial ground nearly half an 
hour later, a second shot was 
heard, and again nothing was 
seen. Then, after President 
Zafl Sit# had been seen off] 
and Mr Gandhi his wife Sonia 
and other officials gathered by 
the gate, a third shot was fired. 

“I had just begun to talk (to 
the Prime Minister) when we 
heard a loud report and saw a 
lot of smoke.” said a retired 
judge. Mr Ram Charan LaL “I 
realized I had been hit.” 

It seems probable that Mr 
Lai screened the Prime Min- 
ister from the shoL Altogether 
four people were injured. 

The Prime Minister’s se- 
curity guards then surrounded 
the pergola and fired a number 
of shots into it. until the young 
man stood up and yelled: 
"Main surrender karta hung" 
— I surrender. 

Meanwhile, Mr Gandhi 
calmly urged his wife into the 
car and the official party 
moved to another memorial 

Police said late last night 
that the gunman at first gave 
his name as Manmohan 
Desai, but later changed it 
several times. It was known 
that he came from the near by 
holy Hindu city of Mathura, 
and that he was not a Sikh.

the capital. Mr Rajendra

Mr Botha’s action. “I think it’s 


quite all right for a friend to 
call a friend.” he added. 

But Senator Richard Lugar, 
Republican Chairman of the 
Senate Foreign Relations 
Committee, accused Mr Botha 
of a despicable attempt at 
bribery and intimidation. 

Mr Bozha's call came as the 
Senate prepared to vote on

quite possible that the man is 
mentally deranged, but this is 
something that can be estab- 
lished only after a thorough 
Investigation.” 

Mr Gandhi later said that he 
was in no danger: “Absolut- 
ely.” he said, “there is ho 
problem at afl.”

fices and news agencies here

attempt was actually made (A 
Correspondent writes).

The cause of Labour mod- 
eration continued to flourish 
at the party’s annual con- 
ference yesterday. 

This largely consisted of 
the conference voting for 
things which would have 
been considered extreme ten 
years ago. and impossible five 
years before that-Thus dele- 
gates voted against our 
withdrawing from Nato, but 
in favour of our ordering the 
Americans to dose their 
nuclear bases in Britain. 

The conference also voted 
for lots of nationalization and 
renationalization. The word 
“nationalization" had long 
been identified in the public 
mind with such phenomena 
as surly railwaymen. So the 
Labour policy statement 
agreed yesterday, called the 
same thing ’’social 
ownership.” 

This showed a lack of study 
of linguistics. Within a few 
years of its implementation, 
“social ownership” would in 
turn become identified with 
such injustices as mass 
starvation, caused by restric- 
tions on dining car accom- 
modation between London 
and Glasgow on Sundays, 
and the party would bave to 
invent another another word 
for the policy. 

A word's meaning is de- 
rived from what it describes, 
not the other way about Max 
Beerbohm illustrated this 
point when, on hearing some- 
one say that they thought 
"ermine” to be a beautiful 
word, he asked whether this 
was also true of “vermin." 


Berlin workers’ uprising of 
1953. 

Had the choice been left to 
Mr Haiiersley. a genuine 
moderate mindful oftiwiwasfl 
to retain the middle-das 
vote, it might have been a 
reading of. say. the haunting 
sensitive Savoy Grill, from 
the anthology. The XSood 
Food Guide. 

As Shadow Chancellor Mr 
Haiiersley had to reply to the 
debate on ’‘social 
ownership”. He promised 
that the biggest institutions 
which the Tories had pri- 
vatized would be taken tads 
by a Labour GovcmmcnLHe 
ignored the extremists' de- 
mands that no compensation 
should be paid to the owners. 
Then, turning to the field for 
which he has become famous; 
he referred to a catering, 
institution, once owned by 
British Rail which the Tories 
had sold into private 
ownership. 

"To those who called for 
immediate renationalization 
of every thing the Tories pri- 
vatized. 1 say that there are 
more important things than 
spending three or four leg- 
islative days taking the 
Gleneagles hotel back into 
the public sector.” 

This must be seen in foe 
context of the campaigning 
being waged against Mr 
Haiiersley because of his food 
distribution policy. (See this 
column on Tuesday, and no 
doubt several future ones.) 
His Gleneagles Declaration 
on privatized hotels was 


doubtless seen by his critics 
as Roy looking after his own 
interests during the dark 
years of social ownership 
which perhaps lie ahead. 

He knows as well as anyone 
that, such is his awesome 
reputation with knife and 
fork the unions would seize 
on his periodic visits to the 
Gleneagles hotel to demand 
huge manning levels for foe 
work of waiting on him at 
table. 

"‘ulla, room service. . . Mr 
Haiiersley, isit? Sorry, sir. rd 


Just before the defence 
debate the conference ob- 
served a minute’s silence as 
part of the United Nations’ 
maudlin, world-wide “mil- 
lion minutes for peace” cam- 
paign. The SDP and Liberal 
conferences had done the 
same. 


( That threatened to make it 
less exciting for Labour's 
bloodthirsty peace campaign- 
ers.- So it was decided that, 
after the minute, a lady 
should give a reading. The 
party chose a poem by 
BerthoJd Brecht: subtle 
Stalinist, America-hater, 
sympathiser with the neces- 
sity of putting down the East 


(ike to bring you your lobster 
and Yorkshire pudding, bat 
it's the union. Management 
have refused our demand fa 
double time when yonfre 
here... I vote Labour, 
though."

mventors 

By Ajme Warden 

Recommendations put for- 
ward by the Office of Fair 
Trading have brought 
warnings that British in- 
ventors could become open to 
exploitation. 

The inventors would find it 
easier and cheaper to protect 
their ideas if the “near 
monopoly" of patent agents 
were removed, saysThe OFT. 

It also wants the Chartered 
Institute of Patent Agents, the 
agents' professional body, to 
stop issuing guidelines on fees 
and withdraw rules restricting 
advertising. 

However, the OFT pro- 
posals would lay small com- 
panies and individuals open 
to the risk of dealing with 
“cowboy" companies, the in- 
stitute said. 

Mr David Votier, its vice- 
president, sakt “I think -it 
means that anybody can call 
themselves ‘patent agents.* 
This would be worrying." 

Britain has about 1,200 
registered patent agents, 60 
per cent of whom are in 
private practice. . 

The OFT report is to be -■ 
considered by -Mr Paul 
Channon, Secretary of State 
for Trade and Industry, arid is 
•likely to be partoftj£* packagei 
for the Bill oh" ihteBectual 1 
property which is to be in- 
troduced in the next session of 
Parliament 

Processing a patent applica- 
tion can takrbetweeh two and 
four years. The costs vary, 
depending on the complexity 
of the innovation. The patent 
agents’ institute, says that in- 
dividual agents' costs vary, 
greatly in spite of the guide- 
lines it issues.

Mrs d’Abo yesterday after launching Ryman's flotation. 


Ryman, the high street retail- 
ing group, Is being brought to 
the Unlisted Securities Mar- 
ket by the stockbroker L. 
Messd through an offer for 
sale by tender of 1*73 million 
shares. 

The u» «iIhi m ii tender price 
is 105p and investors wQl be 
able to pick, op a copy of the 
prospectus in their local 
branch from today. 

Ryman is a specialist re- 
tailer of office stationery, ma- 
chines and furniture, greeting 
c ar d s gifts and personal sta- 
tioner)'. It sells through 53 
outlets in the South of En- 
gland easily recognized by 
their distinctive green and red 

livery. 

In the year to the end of 
May, Ryman made a pretax 
profit of £554,000 on turnover 
of £17.2 million. In 1984-85. 
profit and turnover were 
£11M00 and £14-3 million 
respwtively. At 105pi, the 
shares are on an historic p/e 
ratio of 15.2 times. On a 
normalized 35 per cent tax 
charge this rises to 23.4 times. 
The asset value is 19-5pper 
share. 

Ryman is issuing 1-4 million 
new shares which will raise 
approximately £1.13 million 
net of expenses. The remain- 
ing 13 minion shares wBl be 
sold by existing institutional 
shareholders and by directors 
of the company. The market 
capitalisation of the company- 
will be at least £9.9 miUiott. 
The money raised will be used 
to fond the group's current 
expansion plans and enable 
the opening of a new ware- 
house. 

Mr Stephen Billyeaid, 


managing director of Ryman, 
thinks that it is feasible for the 
group to open 15 shops a year. 
Site availabOiy prevents the 
group from opening 20 stores a 
year. 

He believes that in the 
South of England alone, 
Ryman could double (be num- 
ber of ontlets while in the 
longer term nationwide cover- 
age could add a further 70 
outlets. It does not own its own 
premises. 

Ryman was bought from 
The Burton Group in 1981 by 
Fanunace, a company formed 
for this purpose by Mrs 
Jennifer d'Abo, the present 
chairman, with the backing of 
five investment institutions. 
Mrs d'Abo and her manage- 
ment team have been respon- 
sible for revitalizing the 
business. 

The successful formula has 
involved concent rating on 
developing a range of prodoefs 
which are distinctively de- 
signed. of high quality and 
well presented. 

Although personal sta- 
tionery, greetings cards and 
gifts account for under 15 per 
cent of turnover, gross margins 
are twice those earned on 
office stationery which itself 
accounts for two thirds of 
turnover. Ryman's own brand 
products make up for 40 per 
cent of the sales of office 
stationery products. 

The application list will 
open on Friday, October 10 at 
HUM) am. The striking price 
should be announced early the 
following week with dealings 
expected to begin on Friday, 
October 17.

The sale covers almost all

portfolio but leaves its 
HKS163 billion commercial 
investments untouched. 

Mr Rich said: “The dra- 
matic reduction in tte group's 
debt achieved during the past 
two years has been accom- 
plished without deferring our 
core commercial portfolio. 
Hong Kong Land now has the 
financial strength to capitalize 
upon opportunities in the ar- 
eas it knows best — the 
development, ownership and 
management of prime 
commercial investment 
properties."

1 Chairman’s Statement 

“The pre-tax profit of Kalon Group for the six 
months ended 30th June 1986 increased by 78% to 
£L543 millio n (1985 adjusted £867,000), despite the 
continuing investment in modernisation of the 
Leyland factory which resulted in higher interest 
ALON costs. This sharp increase in profit reflects the 
benefits of the cost savings arising from the 
rationalisation programme which has been carried 
out since the merger with Leyland in June 1985. 
Difficult trading conditions during the period resulted in 
slightly lower Group sales of £37.3 million against £38.3 million in 
the previous year. The reduction was particularly evident in export 
markets where the impact of falling ofl prices led to reduced 
demand from the Middle East 

With the rationalisation programme now complete and with 
sales showings significant improvement since June, all companies 
within the Group are operating profitably. The board anticipates 
that this improving trend will continue and be reflected in the results 
far the full year."

Obvious anxiety by IMF countries to paper over the cracks 

F udge and compromise rule 
among the Group of Seven 


By Bailey Morris 

and David Smith 
Washington 

i JS m< ? r ? 5S Pects. the annual 
ic,£ 8aih f in S of finance min- 
cers and central bankers in 
Washington has been a failure. 

hJh i^^Pped smiles and 
nigh-flown phrases about eco- 

"?i n,c . _PP l *?y co-operation 
cannot disguise t hat 

Fudge and compromise 
have ruled, from the agree- 
ment to disagree on interest 
and exchange rates, to the 13th 
1°®°. P a ?* ta S e hammered out 
by Mexico and her creditor 
banks. 

Onhappiest of all, perhaps, 
have been the British repre- 
sentatives at the meetings. Mr 
Lawson may claim, as he did, 
.that there is now a consensus 
on economic policy, both 
macro and micro, along the 
lines pursued in Britain. 

But Mr Lawson, beset by 
the problems affecting the 
pound at home and anxious to 
play down what he described 
as “piffling matters" like the 
debate over lower West Ger- 
man interest rates, was in no 
position to lecture others on 
policy. 

The anxiety of the countries 
to paper over the cracks of 
their disagreements was ob- 
vious. After the weekend 
meeting of Lhe Group of Seven 
countries, _ the participants 
emerged with a communique, 
saying that the meeting had no 
immediate implications for 
interest and exchange rates. 

It is worth recalling what the 
seven countries - the United 
States, Britain, Germany, Ja- 
pan. France, Italy and Can- 
ada. agreed to do. 

After the Tokyo economic 
summit in May, officials 
worked on refining a system to 
gauge economic performance, 
to form the basis of policy co- 


ordination in the medium 
term. According to Mr Janies 
Baker, the US Treasury Sec- 
retary; “The bey point is that 
we now regularly review the 
effects of our individual ac- 
tions on matters of common 
concern.” 

But there has been no 
agreement on setting up a 
system where countries would 
be required to make policy 
changes if one or more of their 
indicators moved out of line. 
“That’s not the way the world 
works," Mr Lawson said, so it 
seems the process has hardly 
moved on since Tokyo. 

Mr Kiichi Miyazawa, the 
Japanese Finance Minister, 
was unconvinced of any 
breakthrough in policy co- 
ordination, under mu tual 
surveillance. 

“Surveillance may be use- 
ful, but its use is limited," he 
said, adding that “the fruitful 

Unhappiest of all, 
it seems 
were the British 
representatives 

result is that we really get to 
know each other better. This 
gives way to more 
understanding". 

As for the idea that the use 
of indicators could promote 
currency stability within tar- 
get zones, be was dismissive. 
“I am not very optimistic;" he 
said. “Our experience in the 
past 12 months does not 
indicate anything mutually 
agreeable." 

Clearly the main thing to 
come out of this meeting was 
that the dispute between the 
US and the rest, especially 
Germany, about exchange 
rates and world growth re- 
mains as alive as ever. 

The European view was-that 



Mr James Baker, the US Treasury Secretary, (left) and Mr Nigel Lawson, the Chancellor, 
who, beset by problems at home, was in no position to lecture others on policy 


the failure to agree on interest 
and exchange rates was a 
limited success because it 
implied recognition by the 
Americans that public state- 
ments on the subject, “mega- 
phone diplomacy", were 

unhelpful. 

But for the US, the failure to 
agree indicated disagreement 
would continue. On Tuesday, 
President Reagan said there 
was a need for lower interest 
rates in the US and fester 
growth in other countries. 

On Wednesday, Mr Baker, 
said: “The only way to resolve 
the external imbalances 
among countries is through 
increased growth abroad, 
competitiveness for the US 
dollar, or both.” 

He added: “There is a signal 
opportunity for industrial na- 
tions in surplus ... to help by 
boosting their growth. 1 urge 
these countries to seize the 
moment." 

These remarks, virtually in- 
distinguishable from those 
made before the meetings.

understandings have been 
reached. 

The Group of Seven did 
allow for the possibility that 
they could be required to get 
together again quite soon if, 
for example, the dollar slides 
again. That emergency meet- 
ing may take place quite soon. 

Few people, and there are 
exceptions like Herr Gerhard 
Sioltenberg. the German Fi- 
nance Minister, have left these 
meetings convinced that the 
pause in world economic 
activity is behind us and that 
growth at an acceptable rate is 
under way. The Americans are 
convinced that European 
growth will peter out next 
year, and that a German 


growth rate of 3 per cent is 
highly unlikely in 1987. 

The doubts over world 
growth carry over into con- 
cern over lhe debt situation. 
The debt-ex port-ratio of the 
debtor countries is at a higher 
level this year than in 1 982-83. 
the height of the crisis. It rose 
last year and has continued to 
rise this year. 

The Mexican loan deal, 
hammered out here this week 
a day after the IMF-imposed 
deadline, hardly represented 
an encouraging beginning to 
the new world represented by 
Mr Baker's debt initiative. 

The banks only agreed to $6 
billion of new money for 
Mexico having had their arms 
twisted by everyone from the 
President of the United States 
downwards and having been 
provided with S500 million of 
new World Bank guarantees. 
The case-by-case approach to 
debt is highly sensible. But if 
each case is going to be as 
difficult as Mexico, the out- 
look is not encouraging. 


The star in Mrs d’ Abo’s next big show 


Jennifer Mary Victoria 
(TAbo is formidable and femi- 
nine. Her bonfiant hair and 
smooth complexion remind 
yon instantly of another lead- 
ing lady. If Mis Thatcher ever 
needed a locam in Number 10, 
Jennifer would fill the. MIL She 
is exceedingly tall ahif dearly 
more than an equal for most 
men, as her third divorce, from 
stockbroker and fellow Ryraan 
director, Robin, ought suggest. 
Rumour has it that her heart 
will remain in the City, which 
has come to love her, bat with 
a larger firm. 

Talking — not of course 
about her private lives— bat of 
her entrepreneurial approach, 
she believes in “funding some- 


thing I believe is good and can 
make something of. I have 
never bought a profitable busi- 
ness in my life. I am a builder 
by nature. I always pat op £ for 
£ and never have a controlling 
interest in the inves t ments I 
make". 

Her acquisition and restora- 
tion erf Hyman, with the snp^ 
port of five admiring investing 
institutions (the one now 
deserting her should look to its 
rabbit’s feet), is a d* Abo case 
history. After the offer for 
sale, it mil be important for 
her to remain involved with 
Ryntan. 

Her ability to motivate peo- 
ple is an in tangible asset of 
more than symbolic value. Her 


decision to sell two- thirds of 
her personal holding — 
400,000 shares that at the 
miniim nn tender price win 
fetch $420,000 - has in- 
evitably raised a question 
■about her commitment. “Why 
not?" is her answer. Why 
shouldn't I have some reward 
for all the work I have pat in, 
and boy something nice?” 
There is no answer to her 
answer. 

But Starmgard, the “shell" 
company Mrs d’Aho used to 
bid successfully for the fashion 
and textile group, Sefincourt, 
beckons. It is an ideal vehicle 
for her entrepreneurial and 
motivating skflb. It accords 
too with .her womanly in- 


stincts. She already has 
around her a cross-section of 
designers. Now she has for- 
mally added “the star 9 ’ — the 
hriQhint and delightful Japa- 
nese master of haute couture, 
Ynki. 

Jennifer wore her first Yuki 
dress to appear on the Wogan 
show; shortly after she ac- 
quired Ryntan. “I have the 
utmost confidence iu him and I 
always have. His design* are 
eternal: yon can wear his 
dothes with confidence again 
and again. And he is land to 
women's figures. In one of his 
dresses yon look better, and 
yon feel better. 

The contract between 
Stormgard and Yuki Designs 


Ltd. provides, after an initial 
period, for a 60-40 split; a new 
showroom (m Wells Street); 
and above alL the stability and 
support services that should 
enable Yulti to concentrate all 
his talent and imagination on 
designing clothes and acces- 
sories. 

In her words, “He is the 
best He knows the market for 
his kind of dothes — classic 
good taste — which we believe 
we can make and market 
properly." Having seen what 
she has done with Hymans, I 
for one do not doubt her.

COMMENT Kenneth Fleet 


Decision time for PM 
and Chancellor 


In Washington, the Chancellor was 
among powerful friends. Everything 
seemed possible and financial mar- 
kets could be loftily dismissed for 
their “almost unhealthy" short-term 
obsessions. When Nigel Lawson ar- 
rived back in London on Wednesday 
night, he might reasonably have 
rubbed his hands and muttered 'crisis, 
what crisis’ were he not far too smart 
to hand such hostages to fortune. 

By lunchtime yesterday, however, 
the foreign exchange markets had 
again turned as virulent as an un- 
treated infection. Despite continuing 
help from the Bundesbank, which had 
appeared to turn the tide earlier in the 
week, the Sterling Index plunged to an 
all-time low as the pound led a weak 
dollar down and fell through 2.9 
marks. 

As the Governor, Robin Leigh- 
Pemberton, might have said, base 
rates did not rise yesterday. But 
interest rates did. Money market rates 
generally ended 3/1 6 of a point higher, 
with longer dated interbank rates 
touching 1 1 per cent. Certificates of 
deposit are slightly lower, but still 
comfortably in territory that makes 
round-tripping possible. So long as it 
pays company treasurers to draw on 
loans and lend the money back to the 
market — however much the Bank of 
England may disapprove — there is 
trouble. 

Yesterday's reserve figures, show- 
ing the first evidence of recent Bank 
intervention to help sterling, were not 
particularly remarkable. Rather, the 
markets sensed that intervention was 
not proving decisive and the pound 
was there waiting to be sold. Dealers 
in London turn over an average $90 
billion a day. so these decisions are 
being made constantly, not merely 
when some evidence comes up that 
requires a change of view. 

No such evidence is likely to be 
forthcoming. The next few money 
supply figures have been rendered 
meaningless by a combination of the 
TSB and the change to calendar- 
month reporting, with British Gas to 
come later. In their absence, there are 
continuing signs of a credit boom, 
whether in house prices or bank 
personal lending up £2.8 billion or 6.4 
per cent in the three months to 
August Trade provides no contrary 
signals. 

If the new reserves were piled in, in 
large lumps, the dealers might have 
their fingers burnt But those reserves 
are there to counter pre-election 
market nerves. The Chancellor, and 
the Prime Minister must therefore 
jointly decide whether to allow ster- 
ling to take the strain or to raise 
interest rates. While the former course 
has its merits, history suggests that 
markets will push further and further 
until a base rate change is forced. 

To accept the market view is not to 
concede defeat but perhaps to ponder 


whether the foreign exchanges will 
ever allow British industry a fair run 
so long as sterling's role in speculative 
, foreign exchange dealing is so dis- 
proportionately large compared with 
its significance as a trading currency. 

Quinton’s challenge 

Sir Kit McMahon is not the only 
new boy to enter the charmed circle of 
clearing bank chairmen next spring. 
He will be joined by John Quinton, an 
outstandingly able domestic banker 
whom Barclays yesterday named as its 
successor io Sir Timothy Bevan. With 
the appointment, Barclays breaks a 
Tradition for only the second time in 
90 years: Mr Quinton is not a member 
of any of the Barclays ruling families. 

There were one or two raised 
eyebrows in the City. Many had 
assumed that Peter Leslie, the chief 
general manager, would be the chosen 
man. His path to the top was 
smoothed in a way that suggested he 
was being groomed for the final step. 
.Andrew Buxton, the deputy chair- 
man. was also in the betting as the 
leading runner from one of the family 
stables. At a mere 47 he would have 
been a gamble, which had it gone 
wrong, would have been around a 
long lime. With time on his side, his 
turn may yet come. Peter Leslie's 
main handicap, in the end. may have 
been his close indemification with the 
Barclays' international operation. Mr 
Quinton, a more low key character, 
has risen through the domestic side 
since he joined the bank in the 1950s. 

His 1 appointment suggests Barclays’ 
revised priorities. After the disasters 
of international lending in the 1970s 
it. like other banks, has turned to 
home markets. Barclays is not doing 
as well here compared with its 
competitors, as its last set of results re- 
vealed. A fully restored Mr Quinton 
understands both the nature of the 
task and the importance of succeeding 
in it. Mr Quinton's domestic experi- 
ence is impressive. He dragged 
Bardaycard out of the red in the 
1970s, and more recently presided 
over the introduction of Saturday 
opening. He was a member of the 
fnnge banking lifeboat committee 
between 1973 and 1976 and he is now 
a member of a handful of distin- 
guished City committees. 

He will continue the Barclays' 
tradition of executive chairman. Sir 
Timothy has presided, in the main 
successrally, over a period when the 
Bank's direction has altered and its 
precedence among the clearers 
increasingly challenged by National 
Westminster Bank. His 1 departure is 
hardly unexpected since he made little 
secret of his desire to leave at 60. 

He will bequeath to his successor a 
number of unresolved issues, not least 
the continuing damage to Barclays' 
reputation and business from its 
involvement in South Africa.

Plan to cut 
court costs 
for patents 

The cost of litigation over 
patents could be heavily cut if 
reforms now being considered 
by Mr Geoffrey Panic, the 
Minister for Information 
Technology, become law. 

Proposals for an imeDectua! 
property court to take much of 
the work out of the county 
courts and lhe High Court and 
to speed up bearings are likely 
to be included in the Queen's 
Speech next month. 

However, one body 
representing 60 of Britain's 
leading companies believes 
that the ideas, put forward in 
response to the Government’s 
White Paper on intellectuaJ 
property published in April 
this year need further thought. 

Mr Peter Orton, president 
of the Trademarks. Patents 
and Designs Federation, said 
bis group was “cautiously in 
fevour” of the plans. 

But he added: “I think they 
have got themselves into a bit 
too much protrial work." 

There was also concern 
about the independence of the 
proposed court if it were part 
of the Patent Office. 

The detailed proposals put 
forward last month by the 
Chartered Institute of Patent 
Agents suggest strict time 
limits — typically a month or 
two — on each stage of the 
case. 

At present, a dispute in the 
courts over patents can lake 
five years and cost a company 
hundreds of thousands of 
pounds. 

For that reason. Mr Orton 
said. most British companies 
were much less patent-con- 
scious than their counterparts 
in other countries, notably 
West Germany where the 
European Patent -Office in 
Munich has a court of the sort 
the Government is consid- 
ering setting up. 

Typical costs in West Ger- 
many fora court case involv- 
ing patents were between a 
quarter and a tenth of those in 
Britain. Legislation here was 
long overdue. “Patents litiga- 
tion is too expensive and too 
complicated," be added.

WALL STREET 


Shares slip after early 
attempt at rally 


New York (Reuter) — Wall 
Street Stocky fluctuated within 
a narrow range in early trading 
yesterday. 

After a tower opening, 
prices resumed the upward 
course of the previous two 
sessions. Some profit-taking 
pressure at the outset soon 
evaporated. Towards mid- 
morning, however, they 
started slipping again. 

The Dow Jones industrial 
average, which was down 
abont fonr points in the first 
half hoar, jumped seven points 
to 1,790 at one stage, only to 


hill back to 1*781.64, down 
1.26. 

The transport indicator, 
which was strong on Wednes- 
day, slipped 1.25 to 813-88, 
with the utilities average down 
1.17 at 198.76. The 65 share 
average was down 1J1 at 


The broader New York 
Stock Exchange composite in- 
dex showed a gain of 0.14 at 
134*3 while Standard & 
Poor's 500 index gained 022 
to 233*2. 

IBM rose J i to 133*8 in early 
deals when USX led the 
actives, np 44 to 25. 




Merck and 
ICT swap 
rights on 
new drugs 

I m peri al Chem ical In- 
dustries has entered into an 
agreement with Merck and Co 
(New Jersey), the US 
pharmaceuticals group, to ex- 
change the worldwide rights 
for two new drugs. 

Under the deal, announced 
yesterday, 1CI has granted 
Merck a worldwide licence 
covering StatiL an enzyme 
inhibitor which is being devel- 
oped for the treatment of 
complications arising from 
diabetes. 

In return, ICT will receive a 
worldwide licence for Merck’s 
new antihypertensive and 
heart failure treatment, 
LisinopriL The drug is at an 
advanced stage of develop- 
ment and applications for 
approval have been made in 
eight countries with a view to 
laundi by the end of 1987. 

From now on there will be 
dose collaboration between 
the two companies in the 
development of both drugs. 

ICI is a leader already in 
cardiovascular medicinewith 
its beta-blockers Tenormin 
and Inderal but it does not yet 
offer a product such as 
Usinopril. 

Similarly, Merck is not 
involved in medicines for 
diabetic patients. Stadl is a 
promising new drug in its field 
and the potential market is 
estimated at between $750 
million (£520.8 million) and 
$1.5 billion a year. 

R-R success 

El AL the Isreaii national 
airline, has purchased options 
on two Boeing 757-200 air- 
craft which will be powered by 
Rolls-Royce engines. 

The deal worth £23 million 
to Rolls-Royce is seen as 
another success in the inter- 
national aero engine market. 
It is 22 years since B Al last re- 
quested Rolls-Royce engines.

Johnson Fry to 
launch BES 
buyout fund 


TEMPUS 


; //f 


Banking on cutbacks 
at Mitchell Cotts 


By Lawrence Lever 


Johnson Fry. the mini- 
financial services group, is 
launching a business expan- 
sion scheme fond, giving pri- 
vate investors rare access to. 
leveraged and management 
buyouts. 

The fund, to be formally 
launched next week, is thefirst 
BES fond to invest in buyouts. 
There is no limit io the size of 
the fund and no dosing date 
for subscriptions. 

The BES gives investors in 
certain unquoted companies 
tax relief on investments of up 
to £40,000 a year. 

Mr Charles Fry. chairman 
of Johnson Fry, yesterday 
swept aside objections that the 
market for buyouts is over- 
priced with too many venture 
capitalists chasing too few 
deals. 

“There is a cartel of venture 
capitalists at the moment," he 


said. “There is a shortage of 
deals, which is why the cartel 
looks after itself " when the 
deals come around. 

“With BES finance we will 
be able to undercut the cartel" 

Johnson Fry believes the 
management and leveraged 
buyout fond will be able to 
offer better prices to prospec- 
tive managements, as inves- 
tors in the fund will have , 
received lax relief on their 
investment They will there- 
fore not require the high rates ; 
of return needed by more ; 
traditional equity financiers. ; 

Johnson Fry, which will be 
responsible for finding, 
arranging and monitoring the 
success of buyout opportu- 
nities. has established "dose 
links" with Citibank NA, a 
market leader in American 
and British leveraged and 
management buyouts. 


Abaco acquires 
Lloyd’s broker 


By Alison Eadie 


Abaco Investments, the last- 
growing financial services 
group, is buying Burgoyne 
Alford, a Boyd's broker 
specializing in house buildings 
and contents insurance, for a 
maximum £8.1 million. 

Burgoyne Alford provides 
insurance to more than 
400,000 householders in Brit- 
ain through 2,000 non-Lloyd's 
high street brokers and more 
than 100 building societies. 
The advantage of an insurance 
broking arm, which Abaco has 
been seeking for a longtime, is 
the high level of repeat busi- 
ness rather than one-off 
services. 


The acquisition will be fi- 
nanced by £4.5 million in cash 
and £3.6 million in shares. An 
initial payment of £5.15 mil- 
lion will be topped -np by a 
matimum £2.95 million if 
Bwgoyne's taxable profits 
reach £1.1 5 million in the year 
to March 31. 

Burgoyne made £504,000 in . 
1985-1986 and will probably 
make about £850.000 this 
year, indicating a final pur- 
chase price slightly below 

£ 8.1 milli on. 

Abaco has now used up the 
proceeds of its £14.2 million 
rights issue in June . 


Reckitt buys a $30m bubble 


lb* afUKO cExosHHWa 


Reckitt & Cohnan, the 
household product manufac- 
turer, is splashing out $30 
million (£20 Bullion) mi the 
babble bath that it claims 
helps dean more American 
children than any other 
“Mr BubMe", with the slo- 
gan “Makes getting dean as 
much fan as getting dirty", is 
just one of a range of prodnefs 
made by the privately-owned 
GoM Seal company, which 


By Richard Lander 

Reckitt is buying. Other lilies 
indnde fabric softener amf 
washing bleach. 

The purchase price, com- 
prising an immediate payment 
of $20 million with the balance 
payable over five years may 
serai expensive at 15 times 
last year’s pretax annual prof- 
its. Reckitt, however, sees 
scope to increase gross mar- 
gins and reduce overheads by 
integrating Gold Seal into its 


other North American 
operations. 

The Gold Seal purchase is 
Reckitt's second-largest 
American acquisition in the 
last two months. In August, it 
bought Dnrkee Famous Foods. 

Most of the initial money for 
Gold Seal is coining from the 
sale in August of the non- 
consmner division of the 
Airwick air-freshener com- 
pany in America. 


It is perhaps fortunate that 
Mitchell Cotts is moving out 
of its City headquarters. If it 
stavs in Camomile Street it 
may be besieged by a posse of 
angry stockbroking analysts 
who were given no inkling of 
yesterday's awful final fig- 
ures. 

A whole host of dramas 
wiped out virtually all of 
1 985*5 restated pretax profits 
of £10.9 million. Some of the 
misfortunes to afflict this far- 
flung group were the dismal 
South African economy, the 
fallout from the United States 
air strike into Libya, lower 
tea prices in Africa, spending 
cutbacks by the Belgian Gov- 
ernment and, of course, the 
strong pound. 

Mr Tony Alcock, foe new 
finance director, is sweeping 
the decks by including £4J2 
million of exceptional con- 
tracting losses, of which £1.6 
million is a throwback to a 
1983 construction deal in 
South Africa. 

He is also overseeing a 
grand rationalization scheme 
that will see 11 enterprises 
depart the Mitchell fold, 
among them the South Af- 
rican construction subsidiary 
and some of the Kenyan tea 
interests. 

Three have gone already — 
the travel firm, the South 
Afri c a n quarry operation 
and, yesterday. Inchcape took 
over the British motor ve- 
hicle distributorship for £2.5 
million. Overheads are being 
pared, with only half the head 
office staff having to bother 
to commute to the new HQ in 
Guildford. 

All this should bring in 
some £35 million and deflate 
the gearing, which ballooned 
to 107 per cent after a £20 
million slump in share- 
holders' funds. 

Trying to assess the new 
model Mitchell Cotts will be 
difficult, even if it acts less 
coyly towards the City. 

The company is confident 
that foe drastic surgery, to- 
gether with growth from the 
domestic transport, engineer- 
ing and chemicals firms, will 
brine a return to meaningful 
profits this year. A dividend 
of sorts is promised after the 
passing of foe final payment. 

Profits for 1986-87 are 
estimated at around £6-£8 
million, placing foe shares on 
a p/e multiple of 10-14aflera 
likely higher tax charge. 

The fact that the shares

Etam 

Empire Stores 

Selling clothes, as opposed to 
manufacturing them, appears 
to be the smart end of the 
clothing business, if a 
comparison of foe results of 
Etam. Empire Stores and SR 
Gent is anything to go by. 

All three companies have 
had to suffer the effects of 
unseasonaily cold springs and 
unseasonailv warm autumns, 
but some have managed bet- 
ter than others. 

Etam is ploughing on in its 
well-dug furrow of high street 
retailing to foe Cl and C2 
socio-economic women. 

Although pretax profit 
showed only a 3.4 per cent 
increase on sales 14 per cent 
higher, trading profit was 
128 percent higher despite a 
75 per cent fall m net interest 
received. 

The company has been 
investing heavily in buying 
freeholds and capital expen- 
diture should be £13.5 mil- 
lion this year against £4.6 
million last. 

The newly appointed ac- 
quisitions manager is busy 
looking for retail-related 
buys. He could be tempted to 
run a slide rule over the mail- 
order business, after its recent 
comeback. 

Empire Stores has lagged 
foe recovery of its compet- 
itors, but outshone the 
sector's sales in foe first half. 

Etam is on course for full- 
year profits of £13.5 million 
and .Empire for £8* million. 


The prospective ratings arc 
15.6 and 13.5 respectively. 
Both are strong holds. 

Ibstock Johnsen 

Ibstock Johnscn has come a 
long way from the 
lossmaking days of 1*>82. 
Nevertheless, given foe buoy- 
ancy of the private housing 
market and the increasing 
popularity of upmarket 
bricks, more recent results 
have not fulfilled the group's 
potential — though 
vesterday’s interim results 
confirm that Ibstock is back 
on (he tracks again. 

Information that British 
trading had not been affected 
by the bad weather, that the 
fibres business was benefiting 
from higher pulp prices and 
that the United States was 
making good progress were 
all pointed to at foe time of 
the rights issue last July. 

Pleasing news came from 1 
America where dollar turn- 
over was up by 17 per cent. 
Volumes were unchanged but 
prices were firm. The mix of 
bricks has been improved, 
thus widening margins. Han- 
ley Brick, acquired in Feb- 
ruary, is integrating well. Its 
product range is more 
specialized but complements 
Glen-Gerv well The earlier 
target of making $4.5 million 
in the United States bus been 
superseded: $7.5 million is 
possible this year, rising to 
$10 million in due course. 

In Britain, Ibstock is win- 
ning back market share. 

Post rights, gearing falls to 
about 25 per cent 

For the year as a whole. 
Ibstock should make more 
than £16 million (earnings 
per shares 17.5pX rising to 
£20 million or more next year 
(earnings per share 19.5p). 
On a prospective p/e ratio of 
under 10 times, there is little 
bid premium in the shares

Hockey’s World Cup will 
take place in England for 
the first time over the next 
two weeks. Sydney Friskln 
discusses the prospects of 
the home team and of the 
overseas countries most 
likely to make an impact 

T he World Cup tournament, 
the supreme event in this fast, 
fluid and exciting inter- 
national sport, begins in Lon- 
don tomorrow and continues 
until October 19. -In their centenary 
year, the Hockey Association, who 
control the game in England, are hosting 
the event, the sixth in the series which 
began in 1971 and which, since 197$, 
has been hekl every four years. 

AO 42 games of the World Cup ax the 
Willesden Sports Centre wfli be played 
for the first time on artificial turf, 
although the Olympic Games have been 
organized on various types of synthetic 
surfaces since 1976 in MontreaL These 
surfaces have helped to provide fester 
and more skilful matches than natural 


The widespread interest in the game 
has brought together 12 teams. Paki- 
stan, who are the holders. The Nether- 
lands, England, the Soviet Union, New 
Zealand and Argentina win play in 
group A of the round-robin series; West 
Germany, Australia, India. Spain. Can- 
ada and Poland are in group EL The 
winners and runners-up m each group 
will qualify for the semi-finals on 
October 18. 

' Great Britain won the bronze medal 
in the 1984 Olympic Games in Los 
Angeles but hockey at home did not 
acquire the popularity this achievement 
deserved. Now the flames of interest 
have been kindled anew by the vision 
and enterprise of Phil Appleyard. a fish 
merchant from Grimsby, who took on 
the job of chairman of World Hockey 
Cup (London) Limited and later be- 
came the president of the Hockey 
Association. He regards this as a 
wonderful opportunity to put the sport 
on the map. 

Nine members of the British bronze 
medal-winning team have, through 
their influence and personal example, 
brought English hockey to the forefront 
to raise hopes of a medal Play starts at 
noon tomorrow, after the opening 
ceremony, with a match between the 
host nation and New Zealand. 

Among those players likely to call 
attention upon themselves is Ian Tay- 
lor, England's goalkeeper, whose cour- 
age ana keen sense of anticipation, 
coupled with his agility, have stamped 
him as the world No. 1. 

The scoring proclivities of Sean 
Keriy, England's centre forward, had . 
stirred the imagination of spectators in 
Britain and throughout the world after 
his outstanding display at Los Angeles. 
His ^ability to .seize the: halfechance has 
paid rich dividends and his form in the - 
run-up to the World Gup has been most 
encouraging. 

The marginal fevourites to win the 
tournament are West Germany, follow- 
ing their victory in the eighth Cham- 
pions Trophy in Karachi last April: The 
player of that tournament was Carstrn 
Fischer, one of, the world's best deep 
defenders. He took on the role of 
sweeper after the retirement of the great 
Michael Peter. 

Fischer is not only an expert at short 
corners and penalty strokes but be also 
stamps bis class on matches with fluent 
runs up from to create opportunities. 
The stidcworic and acceleration of 
Michael Hilgers make him the most 
exciting of West Germany’s younger* 
players. 

Among the more mature, Richard 
Chariesworth. of Australia, despite his 
injury problems, should impose himself 
on many a match and in the same light

Reliable: Taylor protects his goal and his reputation as the world's best 


Ties Kruize. of The Netherlands, can 
establish his authority and dictate the 
course of play. Another promising 
Dutch player is Tom van’t Hek, who has 
recaptured the form he lost after Los 
Angeles. Another exciting young Dutch 
player is Gys Wetterings. who plays at 
outside left 

The days have long passed when the 
magic of 'forwards from the Asian sub- 
continent of India and Pakistan could 
bemuse naive defenders, but there are 
Still a few players from there who 
approach their task with exquisite grace 
and charm. Among them is Mohammed 
Shahid, India's captain. Pargat Singh is 
one of the stalwarts in India’s defence, 
both in stature and technique, but he 
has the astonishing ability to go it alone. 

A t Perth, Australia, last year in 
the seventh Champions Tro- 
_phy tournament, he dribbled 
past one'German player after 
another and calmly placed 
the ball in. the net. inspiring his team to 
come back from 1-5 down to 5-5. 

Pakistan's hopes have been revived 
by the return of one of the world's best 
centre forwards, Hassan Sardar, who 
was not in the side that lost the Asian ti- 
tle to South Korea early this week. 
Many a goal that Hassan Sardar bas 
scored — and be struck 10 at Los 
Angeles — has been a masterpiece of 
stickwork and control and his exploits 
at Willesden should be a joy to behold. 

As a halfback, Sos Airapetian, of the 
Soviet Union, could, mth his deft 
touches and smooth distribution, find a 1 
place in any world- XI and although 
Argentina are still immature they have, 
in Juan Garcia, a brilliant forward in the 
making. 

The talented Peter DqjL of New 
Zealand, can strike at short notice. He 


scored in the last minute in Los Angeles 
to force a 3-3 draw with Pakistan, and 
England uiil haxe lo mark him well in 
their opening match tomorrow. 

These and other players could turn 
the fortunes of a game in the tough and 
unrelenting battle for places in the semi- 
finals. Australia, with their in-bom 
phxsical fitness and abundant skills, 
should qualify along with West Ger- 
many, although India cannot be written 
off in that group. 

Pakistan. The Netherlands "and En- 
gland should be involved in a three-way 
tussle in the other group. England’s 
recent form has been good enough to 
give them the edge over both these 
countries, particularly after their 4-2 
victory over West Germany in Ham- 
burg which suggests they may be 
capable of winning the tournament. 

Pakistan and West Germany met in 
the 1982 final at Bombay, where 
Pakistan won 3-1, and they could 
confront each other in the 1986 final. If 
Pakistan win they will achieve the 
unique record of winning the trophy 
three times in a row and four times 
altogether, but the event, unlike former 
veais. has such an open outlook that it 
could be full of exciting possibilities. 

The World Cup has attracted wide- 
spread television and Press attention 
throughout the world When the first 
tournament was held at Barcelona in 
1971. barely 30 journalists were accred- 
ited. Now the number has exceeded 200. 

The BBC will be the broadcaster for 
television and radio. They will be 
covering all the England matches plus 
the semi-finals and final. They will also 
be providing a signal for matches to be 
shown in The Netherlands, Pakistan, 
India. Spain. West Germany, New 
Zealand. Australia. Canada. Portugal 
Austria. Greece and Denmark.

Curtis Cup stalwarts 
block holders’ path 


By John Hennessy 


Even in (be golden days of 
Joyce and Roger Weihcrcd, 
Molly Gourlay, Leonard 
Crawley and. nearer home, Ber- 
nard Darwin, the Worplesdon 
foursomes did not carry the 
distinction that falls to it over 
the next three days. Never 
before has the field included two 
players newly returned from the 
' United Slates after winning the 
Curtis Cup match. 

They are Patricia Johnson 
and Jul Thornhill, standing at 
the bottom of. respectively, the 
lower half and the upper half of 
the draw. Miss Johnson, playing 
off plus four, is partnered by 
Neil Roderick, a young Welsh 
international playing off phis 
two, to form a formidable 
combination. Mrs Thornhill 

tees off with a fellow member of 

Walton Heath. Stuart Robson. 

Miss Johnson and Roderick 
must dearly be regarded as the 
'fevourites. bol that was the case 
last year when they were beaten 
in the final by a Hertfordshire 


pair, Hilary Kaye and Donald 
Langmuir. 

“We were lucky last year," 
Mrs Kaye generously prochums, 
by which she meant that Roder- 
ick did them the kindness of 
hitting a fairway wood into the 
trees at the I8th. She seems 
unwilling to accept that she and 
her partner deserved to profit 
from no such indiscretion on 
their pan. 

It seems that the holders will 
need several slices of luck 
between now and Sunday. If 
form runs true they must over- 
step first the Caldwells, followed 
by Linda Dayman and Martin 
Christmas and. in the semi- 
final, Mrs Thornhill and 
Robson. 

Miss Johnson and her partner 
have been treated more kindly 
and the main obstacle before the 
final would seem to be the 
pairing of individual Surrey 
champions last year and this. Jill 
NicoKpn and Bernard White 
respectively.

Challenges for Douglas 


England’s top player. Des- 
mond Douglas, will be looking 
to win His second successive 
Stiga national top T2 title at the 
Sonam sports centre. 
Cambridgeshire, from October- 
10 to 12. Bill if Douglas, aged 
31. is to repeat bis triumph of 
1985 he will need to overcome 
not only his 1 1 closest rivals but 
also adapt to the controversial 
new scoring system whereby the 
men play up to 1 1 points over 
the best of nine games instead of 
the traditional 21 over five 
games. 

The absence, of England's 
No. 2. Carl Prean.' who is co- 
in a cup-tie with his 
an team. Gran .Weiss Bad 
Hamm, means that the England 
No. 3. Alan Cooke, is likely to 
• provide Douglas with his most 
serious challenge. Cooke who

For the second year, blue 
tables and yellow balls will be 
used to make the event more 
visually attractive. One legacy of 
the 1985 event has been the 
widespread adoption of brightly 
coloured clothing and a host of 
new styles are expected to be on 
display at So ham. 

Lisa Bellinger, the English 
women's No. 1. will be hoping 
to cut a dash on and off the 
table. Last year Lisa stumbled at 
the first hurdle when her elder 
sister. Jackie, defeated her in the 
first round, although she went

English stock rises in 
European showings 


By Nicholas Harling 


The reputation of English 
clubs in Europe has been done 
no harm this week. Two of thorn 
established firsi-leg leads in the 
first rounds of European com- 
peiitionson Wednesday and the 
third. Sharp Manchester 
United, were by no means 
disgraced in going down by eight 
points at home to Real Madrid. 

By far the most unexpected 
result was that achieved by 
Portsmouth, who take a 20- 
poirn lead to the Adriatic coast 
next Wednesday for their Korac 
Cup tie against the Yugoslavi- 
ans. SibenluL. after their 96-76 
success ai the Mounibanen 
Centre. 

The Yugoslavs, who had eight 
players taller than 6ft 6in. 
including their 7ft centre. Goran 
Drobnjak. seemed surprised by 
the ferocity of Portsmouth's 

opening onslaught. Against a 
team trained by the Yugoslav 
national coach. Dusan Ivkovic. 
that provided Dan Lloyd of 
Portsmouth, who is a compar- 
ative novice at coaching, wuh a 
welcome early psychological bo- 
nus. "We put tiie pressure on 
them from the start by pressing 
them full court and that shook 
them a little Ml They were not 
expecting thaL" Lloyd said. 

Lloyd may be new to coach ing 
buL as a player, he is a veteran 
of numerous European games 
with Crystal Palace. He could 
afford to add that experience 
when he said; 'Teams can find 
ways of losing leads like this. In 
these European Cup away legs. 
I've seen bigger margins go. 

Although irtiuries to Joel 
Moore and Joe White have 
reduced Portsmouth's playing 
strength to eight including 
Lloyd himself, the coach says he 
has no regrets about cutting 
Trevor Anderson and Larry 
Daffie from his squad. 

Steve Bontrager is confident 
that Team Polycell Kingston's 
99-91 advantage against Racing 
Maes Rils Mechelen in the 
European Cup Winners" Cup 
will be enough to see them 
through in Belgium next Tues- 
day. saying: “We can go out 
there ami win by ten point* We 
haven't played our best yet.** 

Ke> in Cadle. the club's new 
coach, was slightly more realis- 


tic. suggesting that “until Kings- 
ton start pushing teams over as 
we should do. we wifi have 
problems". Cadle obviously 
senses that with players of (he 
calibre of the guard. Ronnie 
Bayer, and the American. Rick 
Raivio. Mechelen are quite 
capable of pulling back the 
deficit on their own court. He 
obviously expects more from 
Bontrager. who was restricted by 
Bayer lo eight points in the first 
half, and Martin Clark. 

The coach's decision to start 
without the England imer- 
rtationaL who bas been trying to 
make the grade in America's 
National Basketball Associ- 
ation. was the surprise of the 
evening. 

Nor did the reputation of Real 
Madrid intimidate Manchester 
United, whose S6-7S defeat in 
the European Cup still gives 
them a feint chance of progress 
against the seven-times winners 
of the competition next Thurs- 
day.

By Michael Seely 


Somerville Tattereall Stakes at 
Newmarket today, studious 
followers of form will be quick 
to latch on to the point that 
following successive victories 
at Goodwood, Hendefca then 
foiled by only three-quarters 
of a length to give Bengal Fire 
71b at York last month. 

If Sheikh Mohammed, 
Henry Cecil and Sieve 
Cauthen were disappointed at 
the time they have bad reason 
to revise their opinion since 
because, at Ascot last Sat- 
urday, Bengal Fire managed to 
beat the Champagne Slakes 
runner-up. Deputy Governor, 
in the group two Royal Lodge 
Stakes. 

All that points to Hendeka 
being a tough nut to crack this 
afternoon when he will be 
wearing blinkers lor the first 
time in public in a bid: to cun: 
him of his tendency to idle 
once be strikes the front 

In this instance though I 
cannot help wondering 
whether even he will manage 
to concede as much as 81b to 
the Sheikh's other runner. 
Imperial Frontier, who started 
a hot favourite to win bis first 
race at Yarmouth on the 
strength of some encouraging 
homework on Newmarket 
heath. 

But for missing the break 
and then running very green. 
Imperial Frontier would prob- 
ably have won that day. Of 
equal significance now is the 
assertion of our Newmarket 


imperial Frontier a world of 
good and that he has come on 
in leaps and bounds since. 

' Ome will also be blinkered 
for the first time but when all 
is said and done Cecil has a 
good line on him through 
another of his talented two- 
year-olds, Subailie. 

Having run indifferently in 
the Solano Stakes at 
Sandown, where he finished 
behind Mileage Bank among 
others. Lack A Style returns to 
the scene of his stunning 
triumph in August when he 
beat Lauries Warrior and 
Brave Dancer by four lengths. 

It would be unwise to 
discard Alan Bailey’s colt, 
who is reputed to be a nervous 
traveller, now that he is 
running again on his home 
track. 

Nabeez and Arabian Sheik, 
both unbeaten, will help to 
inject more interest in the race 
which is sponsored by the 
local film of bloodstock auc- 
tioneers who are currently 
holding their most prestigious 
sale ofyearlings. 

Last year two young horses 
by the 1980 Dewhurst winner 
Storm Bird fetched 560,000 
guineas and 350,000 guineas 
during the corresponding sale. 
Now named Bashayer and 
Indian Skimmer respectively, 
they are due to make their 
racecourse debuts in the sec- 
ond division of the Westley 
Maiden Stakes, for which 


Trapeze Dancer and Tweeter 
are other interesting new- 
comers. 

Trapeze Dancer is the $1.5 
million Northern Dancer colt 
that Bill Watts brought home 
to Richmond in Yorkshire 
from Keeneland last summer 
while Tweeter is said to be a 
highly promising colt by 
Northern Dancer's son. 
Northern Baby, who began life 
at stud well by getting that 
smart coh. Bairn. In this 
instance, though, my best 
information concerns 


The earlier division can go 
to Silhouette Dancer, who is 
not a descendant of Northern 
Dancer, as his name might 
suggest, but is by another 
influential stallion. Sharpen 


The Petition Stakes, which 
is open to hones who have uot 
won a pattern race in 1986, 
looks a suitable outlet for 
EmMa to put her best foot 
forward again and show us a. 
glimmer of the sparkle that 
enabled her to win the 
Cheveley Park Stakes 
Another likely winner for 
Luca Cumani today is 
Maiyaasah, who is napped to 
win the first division of the 
North Lancashire Maiden 
Stakes at Haydock. Off the 
course all last year recovering 
from a split pastern, this well- 
bred Kris filly looked des- 
perately unlucky not to win 
her first and only race at 
Salisbury last month 


Walter Swinburn has chosen 
to ride Shahrastani bn pref- 
erence to Sbardari in Sunday's 
Prix de rArc de Triorapbe as 
Michael State's stable jockey 
attempts to repeat his 1983 
victory on All Along in France's 
most important race. 

*Tm not going to make an 
official dcddin until tomorrow 
morning,'' be said. “If there was 
a freak storm in Paris orennght, 
Fd hare to switch to Sbardari. 
rVe certainly found it very

both horses are stare. And don't 
forget Sbardari. He's an antomn 
horse, and he's improving all tbe 

time. Don't forget that this time 
last year we thought he was 
gclng^to be oar Arc horse in 

Swinburn has been faced with 
impossible decisions several 
times this season as Stodte's 
record year has taken him past 
the £2 Bullion mark in prize 
money won. The 24-year-old 
rider has picked the wrong 
mount on several occasions, but 
it has only cost him two vic- 
tories, on Dihistau is the Hard- 
wicks Stakes at Royal Ascot, 
and on Cotorspin in the Irish 
Oaks. But bow it has come to the 
moment of truth, Swinburn mast 
find it hard to discard the horse 
on whom be has already won the 
English and Irish Derfays. 

The jockey's name has to be 
declared by 11 o'clock this 
monungFriin Paris, because of 
the arrangements for tbe Tien*.

the ideal type for the race, and I 
already know him as I won on 
him as a three-year-old at 
Folkestone last summer.” 

At Newmarket yesterday, 
Britain's senior rider had an 
exciting duel with Pat Eddery, 
the man who has supplanted him 
on Dancing Brave, in the Jockey 
Clnb Cap. Starkey drove 
.Phardante dear two frnkmgs 
from home, but Eddery and 
Valuable Witness steadily 
dosed the gap to wia by a short 
head. 

Beforehand Jeremy Tree had 
been in two minds whether to 


Steve Canthen had an un- 
fortunate afternoon. The reign- 
ing champion jockey was lucky 
to escape from serious injury 
when Sameek reared np in the 
stalls before the start of Blood- 
stock and General Insurance 
Stakes. The jockey scrambled 
dear but Sameek remained with 
bis near fore stock in the 
superstructure of the stalls, five 
feet above the ground, and was 
subsequently withdrawn.

favourite, finished unplaced as

Canthen then had the farther 
mortification of riding the mt- 


tfae Choke Jade Stakes. 

Verd-Antfone put ap a highly 
impressive performance as »«- 
Ik Ryan brought Henry Cecil's 
three-year-old heme five lengths 
dear of Kbozdar. 

“He's been off the track since 
he was jarred op ar Ungfield in 
May," said the five-times cham- 
pion trainer. “So I didn't think 
he could possibly win today. As 
it was Willie said be blew up two

I nigbt ran bi'm once more in

Stakes. But basically he needs

problems completely." 

The other jockey news apart 
from Swinburn's decision to 
partner Shahrastani, was that

second retainer to ride for

ooking at the racing 
and belting indust- 
ries together, there 
f ^ three possible 
scenarios for Sunday 

racing: 

• Racing would be allowed, 
but not betting. 

• Only on-course betting 
would be allowed. 

• Normal betting would be 
allowed. 

The first option is obviously 
a non-runner. However much 
racegoers may enjoy the sheer 
spectacle of racing, most of 
them want to bet, and if the 
bookmakers were not allowed 
to set up their pitches and the 
Tote windows were shut, there 
would be all sorts of skuldug- 
gery in the bars, the car parks, 
and even the toilets. 

The third option would 
obviously be ideal for the 
racing public, but is h likely 
that Parliament, having re- 
jected Sunday shopping, may 
agree to see the betting shops 
open? Eventually, perhaps.

By Sir Ian 


Trethowan, 


chairman of the 
Horserace Betting 
Levy Board, which 
collects money from 


the bookmakers and 
returns it to the sport 


out on behalf of the Jockey 
Club's working party under- 
lined the obvious risk; a sharp 
increase in back street illegal 
betting if betting shops were 
closed. 

I£ nevertheless, this was 
accepted, what would be the 
effect on the Levy? We have 
abolished virtually all levy 
from oh-course betring, 50 we 

would lose income. On^course 

but not~sooii. rod probably P™** might on Sunday be

successful attempt to make 
sense of Sunday shopping. 
Having been rebuffed by the 
Sunday observance lobby. 
Members of Parliament wul 
not lightly take on the anti- 
gambling fraternity as well. 

Which leaves the second 
option, betting only on- 
course. in effect a return to the 
pre-1960 situation when off- 
course cash betting was illegal 
(off-course credit betting was 
allowed and presumably still 
would be). Research carried 


would otherwise have wagered 
in the betting shops, where the 
Board does take Levy. 

Does this mean the Levy 
Board would oppose the idea? 
Not necessarily. The Levy 
Board is a sum of several parts 
— the Jockey Club, the 
Horseracing Advisory Coun- 
cil the bookmakers and the 
Tote, together with three in- 
dependent . members. What- 
ever their differences may be 
about- individual issues, they 
are as one in regarding there 


view, with satellite dishes 
spreading along their streets, 
Sunday punters will be able to 
operate from home on credit 
1 personally favour Sunday 
racing, as I support the exten- 
sion of evening raring, be- 
cause it can provide sport at a 
lime when far more people are 
able to go than on mid-week 
afternoons. 

No doubt the great mid- 
week festivals - Royal Ascot 
Cheltenham. York. Good- 
wood and, above ail, Derby 
Day — will continue to attract 
huge crowds, but among the 
more bread-and-butter race- 
courses most are finding that 
an evening meeting will bring 
in many more people than the 
same card staged on a mid- 
week afternoon. 

As the very popular evening 
meetings at Kempton, Wind- 
sor and Chester show, many 
more people attend than at 
afternoon meetings. Also 
quite a few appear who are na t ■ 
otherwise seen on a racecourse 
at alL Supporters of Sunday 
raring argue that this, too, 
would bring in new racegoers. 
There are, of course, special 
problems about Sunday rac- 
ing, with or without the 
betting shops. Would the in- 
dustry be expected to race 
seven days a week? Would the 
extra revenue from the larger 
that, in the end, is what- crowds be wiped out by

the Curragh. The card on 
Sunday was much the stronger 
(two group one two-year-old 
races compared with one 
group three race on the Sat- 
urday) and the paying crowd 
was about three times in size, 
with a notably larger family 
element. 


I 


basic objective as the ultimate 
good of raring as a national 
entertainment. 

The Levy is not the only 
fund-raiser just one of several 
channels through which 
money is syphoned into rac- 
ing. The others are owners’ 
entry fees, sponsorship, and 
the racecourses’ own income 
from membership, the turn- 
stiles, contributions from on- 
course Getting, catering 
profits, television fees and 
profits from non-racing 
activities. 


I 


f Sunday raring without 
betting shops were to 
produce a loss to the 
Levy Board of say £1 
million, but an increase 
of, say £2 million in race- 
course takings, there would be 
a net gain for raring — and 
end, is what- 


t would be silly to ignore 
the problems of Sunday 
racing, and if betting is 
confined to on^course, 
to the risk of illegal 
betting off-course. 

But .Sunday racing has 
dominated the sport in France 
for many years — this Sunday 
Longchamps mil draw its 
biggest crowd of the year for 
the Prix de L’Arc de Triomphe 
— and the Irish are vapidly 
moving in the same direction. 

In Britain other sports are 
increasingly staging big events 
on Sunday. The longer racing 
waits before followingsuit, the 
more difficult it will be to 
-recover the ground lost to 
cricket, tennis, golf or football 

If British raring opts for 
Sunday sport, it will still face 
formidable political hurdles. 
Even sympathetic politicians 
will flinch from taking on the 
Sunday observance lobby 
again. 

British racing needs to de- 
ride whether it wants Sunday 
racing, and if so, then draw up 
a scheme Tot its introduction 
behind which the industry can 
unite. 


Complexities rumble beneath the surface 




P ut simply, the in- 
troduction of Sun- 
day racing in Britain 
would be no more 
than an extension 
from six days to seven of an 
established activity whose 
leaders are beginning to sus- 
pect that it makes sense to 
stage public entertainment 
when the public is free to be 
entertained. 

Unfortunately, few things — 
certainly nothing associated 
with. the racing industry — are 
that simple. For a start, the 
seveni h day is the sabbath, a 
complicating factor, although 
not so complicating that it 
should be an insurmountable 
obstacle if everything else is 
. : favourable. 

But this is not the case, 
either, because those who 
■ consider that the sport’s an - 
.- nual audience of around four 
- million paying spectators 
• : would swell substantially with 
■ the addition of Sunday to the 
: * weekly programme are in- 
’ . effectually silent when re- 
minded that Sunday woriung 

' would mean Sunday pay. How 

manv extra clicks of the 
turnstiles would be necessary 
10 meet the wages the 
industry's labour force would 
require in return for giving up 
iis only free day of the week? 
«* .Certainly, such questions 
must be resolved before any- 
one can say that Sunday sport 
would be good for racing. 

■ Then there is the question 
of betting, which the clearer 
■ thinkers accept would be 
, •sscnttal both on and ott- 
:ourse if Sunday racing was 
> TOt at risk of becoming the 
.v greatest self-inflicted wound 
n sporting history. 

For betting offices to open 
‘in Sundays would require 



By Tom Kelly, 
director-general of 
BOIA (the Betting 
Offices Licensees 
Association), which 
represents 169 
companies with 
4,660 betting shops 


legislation, something which 
always looked difficult to 
achieve but more so since the 
Sunday Trading Bill unexpect- 
edly failed earlier this year. 
Who is going to allow betting 
shops to open when the stores 
are prohibited; and who, in 
any. case, wants to open a 
betting shop when the High 
Street is deserted? 

There is little doubt that a 
change to a continental-type 
Sunday would have increased 
the likelihood of Sunday rac- 
ing and betting, and that the 
success of the traditionalists in 
defeating the Government's 
Bill was a hefty blow to those 
who see Sunday racing as a 
panacea for all the turfs ills. 

Y et, given the sport's 
dependence on 
funds generated by 
the levy on on- 
course betting, the 
shops must be opened when- 
ever the horses run if racing is 
not to lose more than it can 
possibly gain. . 

The lew will put at least £23 
million into the coffers of the 
Horserace Betting Levy toard 
in the current year, probably 
more now that we have tele-

vision in betting offices. But 
there is more involved than 
just the levy and it has to do 
with raring recognizing the 
true nature of its appeal- and 
the real identity of its major 
customer. 

Racing and betting are in- 
extricably bound, not just by a 
financial arrangement which 
is unique to sport, but by the 
feet that for every spectator at 
the track there are countless 
betting-shop punters, arguably 
just as comm fried to racing in 
lbe form they consume it as 
are their racegoing counter- 
parts. For every £5 wagered at 
the course, something like £95- 
crosses the shop counter, and 
even though dyed-in-the- 
woolsack Jockey Cub mem- 
bers may shuddeT, the punter 
has a right to his entertain- 
ment, too, even if be never 
walks the turf he patronizes. 

So. racing has to acknowl- 
edge its market and fulfil .its 
obligation- v> the off-course 
bettor, for failure to do this 
would jeopardize its standing 
as an important part of the 
leisure scene: a status it re- 
quires if it is to justify its 
consumption of vast sums of 
taxpayers’ money. 

Then there is the not-so- 
small question of the £300 
million a year creamed offby' 
the Treasury In General Bet- 
ting Duty, easy money which 
costs virtually nothing to col- 
lect. Even if raring itself was 
prepared to contemplate _ it. 
what Government would give 
even superficial consideration 
to legislation which .would 
create a raring but taxless" 
sabbath? 

Another Government con- 
cern is iHegal gambling, which 
& already a substantial prob- 


lem during the week. Racing 
on Sundays would be seventh 
heaven for the unlawful book- 
maker if his licensed compet- 
itor was confined to mowing 
the lawn. 

Illegal betting takes place in 
pubs, dobs, restaurants, of- 
fices and factories across the 
country and even in the public 
areas of betting shops. The 
offences involved are fiscal 
and criminal, and in some 
instances the operations are 
highly organized and turn 
over vast sums annually. 

The greater the profits, the 
more likely it is that the 
hardened criminal will be 
attracted, and where illegal 
gambling is rife, other, more 
serious, offences are rarely far 
away. It was to prevent this 
type of situation that off- 
course cash betting was le- 
galized, but the high rate of 
General Betting Duty (8 per 
cent ofiumover but around 40 
per cent of customer spend) 
now threatens to undermine 
the law. 

Compared with such a sce- 
nario. the prospect of betting 
offices being open seven days 
a week is surdy a welcome 
one. So why is racing taking so 
long to at least lock horns with 
the moral minority? 

As far as the majority of the 
racing "Press is concerned, 
there are two principal reasons 
for the delay. Some journalists 
point the finger at the Jockey 
Gub, saying that on certain 
issues its movement is im- 
perceptible and on others it 
.can be seen slowly edging out 
of the 19lh century — back 
into the 18th! 'But this is 
unfair, certainly as fer as 
Sunday racing is concerned, 
for as a member of the Gub’s 
Sunday Racing . Working 
Party, this observer can testify 
that progress has been as rapid 
as ' circumstances would 
permit. 

The second target, so often a 
favourite with racing journal- 
ists. is the bookmakers, who 
stand accused of everything 
from blinkered self-interest to 
outright stupidity because 
they are against, so their critics 
say. the concept of Sunday 
raring. In fact, views within 
the industry are mixed, but 

none of tie bookmakers' 
representative bodies are op- 
posed to the idea., 

A popular view among 


bookmakers is that we don't 
know exactly what benefits 
Sunday racing would bring, so 
after the market research and 
talking is over, the way to find 
out is to try it, perhaps on an 
experimental basis. This is the 
policy of the Betting Office 
Licensees’ Association, the 
largest and most influential of 
the bookmaker associations. 

B ut there is one pro- 
viso: When and if 
Sunday racing ar- 
rives. it must be 
accompanied by off- 
course betting, a condition 
which BO LA believes is in the 
interests of racing bookmak- 
ing and society in general. 

It has been suggested that if 
. legislation to allow betting 
offices to operate on the 
sabbath cannot be obtained, 
then racing should go ahead 
with on-course betting only. 

. There is also a view, not 
widely held, that racing could 
go ahead with no betting at all 
but one would have to be a 
horse enthusiast in exiremis 
even to contemplate this and 
it is not worth discussing 
As for on-course betting 
.only, it would not solve the 
problem of lost levy but it 
would feed the problems of 
illegal betting and it is worth 
noting that the market 
researchers appointed by the 
Jockey Gub working party 
found that Sunday racing 
without off-course betting 
would indeed bring a substan- 
tial rise In illegal activity. 

There is also the question of 
unanimity, for unless votes 
are involved. Governments 
have a habit of requiring 
solidarity from the parties 
concerned before agreeing to 
legislation. In other words,-an 
attempt to obtain changes in 
the law to permit on-course 
betting only would be doomed 
because off-course book- 
makers (and perhaps the Levy 
Board) would oppose it 
At present, however, raring 
is not even sure that it wants 
seventh-day racing for when 
the Jockey Gub appointed its 
working party, it was with a 
brief to examine the feasibility 
of Sunday raring: accompa- 
nied, incidentally, by off- 
course- betting The report, 
which is due soon, may nyect 
the apposition. But some- 
how, FWouIdnT bet on ft.

Replacement players hold 
key to team semi-finals 


By Rex Bellamy, Tennis Correspondent 


The semi-finals of the Davis 
Cup competition, the world 
team championship, will be 
played during the next three 
days. The United States, de- 
priv'd of both John McEnroe 
and Robert Segura. take on 
Australia at Brisbane. Czecho- 
slovakia. without Ivan Lendl 
play Sweden, without Mats 
W dander, at Prague. 

There will be eight other ties: 
four to decide w ho will drop out 
of the 1 6-nation “first division" 
and four to decide who will take 
their places. 

Randy Gregson, president of 
the United States Tennis 
Association, barred McEnroe 
from the team on the grounds of 
misconduct. This was of no 
great consequence when the 
team was chosen a month ago. 
because McEnroe's form was 
not impressive. He has since 
won two consecutive tour- 
naments and as a player — if not 
as an ambassador for Uncle Sara 
- he will be missed. 

Seguso's bad knee has tem- 
porarily broken up his doubles 
partnership with Ken Ftach. 
who will probably play with 
Paul Annacone in Brisbane. The

Lendl is disenchanted with 
the chore of playing Davis Cup 
tennis for Czechoslovakia, 
whose top man will be Miloslav 
Mecir. always a bogy for the 
Swedes. Mecir has won 20 of his 
23 matches with Swedes and is 
particularly hafTling on shale 
courts. 

In the past two German 
championships at Hambuig he 
has bemused and beaten five 
Swedes at an average cost of 
only 2.09 games a set Now they

Carlsson’s big test 


From Richard Evans, Prague 


With Mats WiLuder taking a 
two-month break from thr game. 
JcuLkim Njstreo injured, and 
Anders Jarrvd's knee restricting 
him to a doables-only rule, 
Sweden's extraordinary reserve 
strength is being pot to the 
ultimate test in rhe NEC Davis 
Cnp semi-final against Czecho- 
slovakia here this weekend. 

Ironically, however, the incliH 
$hm of Kent Carbson as No. 2 
singles player may prove a far 
more effective antidote to the 
ominous threat of Miloslav 
Mecir (ban any of his senior 
colleagues. 

On no memos occasions in thr 
past. U Hander, Nyxtrom and 
Jarryd have been totally be- 
mused by Mecn’s deceptive 
skills, whereas Carbson has 
beaten him once in three meet- 
ings and came close to winning a 
long siraggle on clay at lbe 
Italian Open this year. 

In add i lion Carlssnn has ar- 
rived here brim-full of con- 
fidence following his victory in 
Barcelona. He has proceeded to 
play so well in practice on the 
day at the Sivanice Stadium

Obviously if Itap Lendl were

ing bark 20 years would be 
greatly enhanced.

YACHTING 


First series draw Multihull 
favours Crusader 


From Keith Wheatley, Fremantle 


Britain's America's Cup team 
have achieved what looks like 
an almost perfect draw for the 
first series of races beginning on 
Sunday. White Crusader meets 
two of the softer opponents, 
Tom Blackaller's radical boat. 
USA. and the unknown Canada 
IL before sailing against the 
New York Yacht Gub on 
Tuesday. 

Few observers now doubt that 
John Koliusand the America II 
crew are the team to measure up 
against But Harold Cudmore. 
rhe combative British skipper, 
said he would have preferred to 
go straight into a match-race 
against Kotius. “I would have 
preferred to take them first 
shake them up. and put them 
down once and for all” 
Cudmore said. Of USA. the 
unconventional 12-metre with a 
forward-mounted auxiliary rud- 
der. he remarked; “They will be 
a tasty hors-d'oeuvres. We've 
been doing a lot of racing and 
we’re comfortable." 

Among the sailors, the air of 
relief that at last the testing, 
trialling, and talking is nearly 
over was almost tangible. The 
high spirits at the draw, with 
Kolius trying to push Cudmore 
off the stage and the Pajot 


brothers, skippers of rival 
French yachts, burying animos- 
ity fora fraternal smile and joke, 
was evidence of that. 

Since each yacht sails against 
all the others in the round-robin, 
the draw is of mainly admin- 
istrative importance. Only if 
bad weather coincides with a 
cluster of tough opponents 
could it make a short-term 
difference. “It does have a very 
slight effect who you sail and 
when if the weather is taken into 
account. But this is such a long 
programme of races that, in the 
end. the percentages will work 
out properly.’' Cudmore said. 

The designer of White Cru- 
sader. Ian HowleiL is in Fre- 
mantle. Yesterday he said the 
boat was going quicker than he 
had thought possible but 
development Is still going 
ahead. A new keel arrives from 
England in a few days and will 
probably be fined before the 
second round-robin. 

Overall, the draw produced a 
singularly dull series of early 
matchings. The first interest 
does not arise until October 13. 
when Dennis Conner sails his 
Stars and Stripes 87 against his 
former pauons. the New York. 
Yacht Club. 


circus 
in Britain 

The French-style multihull 
circus comes to Britain this 
weekend with the Silk Cut 
Challenge, an event which 
seems to have os much to do 
with sponsorship razzmatazz as 
it docs with yacht-racing. The 
racing element is simple enough 
— a race for multihulls from 
Brighton to London's Tower 
Bridge beginning at 2pm 

tomorrow. 

Numerically, the fleet is mod- 
est with only 14 yachts but the 
list of participants reads like a 
Who's Who of sponsored sail- 
ing. Chav Blyth chairs the race 
committee and competitors in- 
clude Eric Tabarly. from France, 
Robin Knox-Johnston. Tony 
Bullimore. Don Wood, Peter 
Phillips, and Phillipe Poupon. 

In France, these events attract 
huge crowds, but in Britain the . 
public has so far been reluctant 
to take to yachting as a spectator 
sport. There has also been 
resistance to the race from some 
quarters of the yachting 
establishment who question the 
wisdom of charting a fleet of 
barely manoeuvrable multihulls 
through the crowded Straits of 
Dover at night and the Thames 
Barrier at Woolwich.

THE TIMES FRIDAY OCTOBER 3 1986 


CRICKET 


Kapil Dev under fire as 
Australians hit out 
over ‘go-slow’ tactics 


A scathing and unprece- 
dented attack on Kapil Dev. 
the Indian captain, for delib- 
erately slowing down the over 
rate, was made by Bob Simp- 
son, the Australian cricket 
manager, after the second one- 
day international ended here 
yesterday. Simpson accused 
Kapil Dev of gamesmanship, 
contravening the spirit of 
cricket and threatening the 
future of one-day matches 
after India had managed to 
bowl only 45 overs, five fewer 
than stipulated, during 
Australia's innings. 

No visiting official with a 
touring team, arguably, has 
ever spoken out so strongly as 
Simpson, not least in India 
where pride and saving face 
are national characteristics 
and where Kapil Dev, since 
India's 1983 World Cup tri- 
umph, is regarded as a na- 
tional idol. Alan Crompton, 
the Australian team manager, 
said Simpson had spoken with 
his full support. 

Crompton said: “Meetings 
with the Indian team manage- 
ment. umpires and the 
controlling body have all 
failed to get anywhere earlier 
in the tour on the over rate 
issue. Australia feel so 
strongly about this matter that 
to act consistently we have to 
speak oul We have failed in 
our endeavours to work on 
this matter behind the scenes 
through the proper channels. 

“Today's match was such a 
source of frustration that we 


From Richard Streeton, Delhi 

felt il lime that the people of 
India heard that Australia do 
not acquiesce in what is going 
on.” Crompton added that in 
a further attempt to son out 
the problem, officials from 
both teams would meet in 
Ahmedabad tomorrow before 
the fifth one-day international 
on Sunday. 

Kapil Dev declined to reply 
10 Simpson and said he was 
content to leave such issues to 
the umpires. 

Simpson opened the Press 
conference, after the match, 
by reminding everyone that 
Australia had asked for it to be 
held at lunchtime before the 
game’s result was known. The 
fact that Australia had lost the 
match had nothing to do with 
his remarks. He had also made 
it clear when the tour started, 
that he would never comment 
on umpiring decisions or the 
behaviour of opposition 
players. 

“Unfortunately, I feel now 


spirit in which these matches 
arc being played and. of 
course, robbing the public of 
the overs to which they have 
paid a high entrance fee to 
witness and. at this ground, in 
the most uncomfortable 
facilities." 

Simpson cited the Indian 
faults as bowlers not returning 
to their mark until they had 
the ball in their hand, bowlers 
being placed in the furthest 
possible fielding positions 
from the bowling crease and 
deliberate field changes after 
every ball. 

Answering questions from 
Indian journalists, Simpson 
agreed that Australia, too, 
when they bowled first in the 
second international at Sri- 
nagar, had managed only 47 
overs. He pointed out that 
everyone bailed there, mean- 
ing a lot of coming and going, 
a lot of bats had been changed 
and one Indian had delayed 
things 10 minutes when he

questionable and deliberate 
gamesmanship employed by 
the Indian captain. Kapil Dev. 
One-day cricket was designed 
to provide a fair challenge 
between the two teams and to 
provide exciting cricket for the 
public, but now its future 
success could be threatened. 

“By deliberating slowing up 
the game in a bid to gain an 
advantage to his own team,

Test pair deterred 
others. Hill says 


The dominant personalities 
and attitudes of the sacked 
Somerset players, Viv Richards 
and Joel Garner, made it diffi- 
cult for the county dub to attract 
new players, the chairman, Mi- 
chael Hill, said yesterday. 

HOI made his charge in a 
letter to members informing 
them of the late of the special 
genual meeting called by oppo- 
nents of the decision to dismiss 
the West Indian Test players. 

The meeting will be held at 
the Bath and West showground, 
Sbeptoo Mallet, on November 8, 
when “rebel” Somerset mem- 
bers will call for a vote of no 
confidence In the clefs general 
committee and demand the 
players’ reinstatement 

The England all-rounder. Ian 
Botham, bos threatened to quit 
if Richards and Gamer leave; 
but the Somerset captain, Peter 
Roebuck, has said he will resign 
if the rebels get their way. 

Hill wrote in the letter “1 
have to say, quite frankly, that 
the main reason we have experi- 
enced difficulties in attracting 


new players to Somerset is 
because of the domination in 
terms of personality and attitude 
of our star players. 


“Outstanding though our 
‘overseas' players were, they 
were unlikely to be able to help 
us to attract and develop the 
quality players which we need.” 

Hill said that throughout the 
season, it had not been dear how 
Richards and Gamer regarded 
their fnture with Somerset. “We 
were aware there would be two 
fell West Indies tours of En- 
gland in 1988 and 1991, hot only 
one half-tour by New Zealand in 
1990," he wrote. 

He added that the cricket sub- 
committee had these points in 
mind when they considered the 
New Zealand batsman, Martin 
Crowe. His “pleasant and popu- 
lar personality" was also likely 
to attract quality players. 

Crowe, die dub believed, 
would encourage and develop 
young crick tiers — “a refreshing 
contrast to the. attitude adapted 
by certain existing players.” 


RUGBY UNION 


Few signs on the road 
that leads to fame 

Welsh Rugby by Gerald Davies 


The season is a month old, 
but it remains a puzzling time 
for the punter who would like to 
place a wager on the season’s 
likely fop clubs. 

Pontypool. For instance, in the 
recent few years have so firmly 
planted their markers at this 
stage that they would have gone 
to the top of the unofficial 
Western Moil championship 
early on. and stayed there for the 
rest of the season. Cardiff, too. if 
only for the presence of so many 
international players in the dub. 
would have established their 
credentials to be among the 
honours at the end of the season. 

And Llanelli, of course, would 
always be considered a safe bet 
to be there or thereabouts in the 
cup competition but never, it 
would seem. For die champion- 
ship which calls For a consis- 
tency which, because of their 
demanding fixture list, they arc 
unable to fulfill. 

If such signs are clearly posted 
usually by the end of ihe first 
month they are not so obviously 
apparent this year. Pontypool. 
whose custom it has been to 
stray off their well- trodden path, 
as it were, and on average over 
the last three seasons lose only 
three matches, have gone down 
as many limes already. They 
have their problems of rebuild- 
ing the team. 

For Cardiff on the other 
hand, the familiar faces are 
around again. Scott stiff wears 
the No. 8 jersey, though at 
present he is on holiday. The 
two most influential players 
have gone. Terry Holmes and 


Gareth Davies turned the tide 
for them so ofien when a bleaker 
outlook seemed certain. Geraint 
John, voted Wales’ most 
promising player in 1985 and 
who had an indifferent time 
with Bridgend last year, needs to 
have his confidence boosted 
with a string of good games for 
Cardiff. 

Their difficulties were high- 
lighted in their loss at Aberavon

Threat of blaze averted 

By David Hands, Rugby Correspondent 


A sensible compromise 
worked out between northern 
clubs and counties appears to 
have dampened the fires which 
broke out at the last full 
committee meeting of ihe 
Rugby Football Union when 
representatives from the north- 
ern division clashed with, 
among others. Alan GrimsdelL, 
president of the RFU. over 
selection policy for the di- 
visional championship. 

it was the north's contention 
that players who aspired to the 
divisional side should qualify by 
playing for their counties. In 
other parts of the country the 
general view is that players 
should be selected straight from 
clubs, leaving the county 
championship to fulfil a logical 
role as the vehicle for aspiring 
junior club players and those in 
the second teams of firsl-class 
clubs. 


However, a statement from 
the northern division yesterday 
said no pressure would be 
placed on leading players who 
preferred to appear ior their 
clubs rather than their counties 
— taking the senior clubs in- 
volved to be those in John 
Smith's merit tables A and B. 
Those clubs will also endeavour 
to play their merit games on 
days other than county 
Saturdays. 

It is a sensible solution be- 
tween wo sides both of whom 
have the interests of the game at 
heart yet see those interests 
developing along different 
roads. Many northern players 
enjoy county rugby anyway. 

It will prove something of a 
relief to England’s selectors, too. 
who would naturally want to sec 
the best players available in the 
divisional championship, which 
begins on December 6 


“Our policy is to try to reach 
50 overs. We play our best 
cricket doing that.” Simpson 
said he would have voiced his 
criticisms even if India had 
achieved 47 overs yesterday. 
He believed 50 overs had 
never been reached in a one- 
day international in India. He 
added: “It is time something is 
done. What on earth is going 
to happen in the World Cup 
next year?"

Lashing out: Dean Jones on his way to a breezy 43 agpirct India 


Lamba’s zest is the key to 
a solid victory by India 


Spirited batting by Raman 
Lamba was the key to India’s 
victory in the fourth one-day 
international here yesterday. In- 
dia. set to make 239. won by 
three wickets, with nine halls to 
spare, to take a 2-1 lead in the 
six-match series. The game was 
reduced to 45 overs after India 
failed to reach an average of 13 
overs an hour, something 
strongly criticized later by Bob 
Simpson, the Australian cricket 
manager. 

Lamba, who won the man-of- 
the-match award, fell to a 
tumbling catch at long-on after 
making a brilliant 74 from 68 
balls. India were then 126 for 
throe from 26 overs. Their target 
steadily narrowed until 7 1 were 
wanted from the last 12 overs. 

The game was effectively 
settled in the 42nd over when 
six balls from Matthews cost 19 
runs. Azharuddin blocked the 
first, swept a four and pushed a 
single. Shastri pulled the fourth 
and fifth for fours and lifted the 
last over mid-wickeu 

India made a shaky start, with 
Gavaskar and Srikkanih dis- 
missed cheaply. Lamba, how- 


Frotn Richard Streeton 

ever, drove and pulled with zest, 
and finished with a six. a five 
and eight fours. Lamba. aged 26. 
is a late developer in Indian 
terms. He struggled on English 
pitches last summer and failed 
to win a Test place. In the 
present onc-day series, he has 
had an considerable impact in 
both Indian wins. 

The game seemed to be 
destined For an early finish when 
Australia slumped to 136 for six 
from 33 overs. Marsh and 
Ritchie were possibly unfortu- 
nate in leg before decisions 
given against them, but several 
careless strokes were played by 
his colleagues and Jones was 
narrowly run out after hinting at 
a scintillating innings . 

Australia were finally rescued 
by a forceful stand btween 
Waugh and Dyer, who shared an 
unbroken seventh-wicket stand 
of 102 in 76 balls. Both drove 
strongly and placed Ihe bail well 
and missed nothing between the 
wickets. Maninder Singh, whose 
left-arm spin improves all the 
time, was the best bowler. He 
had Border caught at long-on 


and Matthews stumped from a 
perfectly flighted delivery.

BOXING 

Fuse lit as 
KayLor 
lines up for 
Graham 

By Sriknmar Sea 
Boxmg Correspondent 

Herol GraluuB, the Sbeffirfd 
middleweight who stepped In to 
stop a oracb-ptibUdzed brawl 
between Marlciuiylor and Errol 
■ Christie at a London casino last 
year, now finds bimseir defend- 
ing his European title against 
Kaylor, who destroyed Christie 
in eight rounds at Werobtey 00 
Cay Fawkes night. This time, 
too, Kaylor and Graham meet at 
Wembley, though on November 
4 — as good a night as any far 
fireworks. 

The boat is also the official 
eliminator for the World Boxing 
Council tide held by Marvin 
Hagler, the undisputed cham- 
pion- But the promoter, Mike 
Barrett, believes that after 
Hagler's encounter with Sugar 
Ray Leonard in April both men 
- will be ready for retirement and 
the tide will become vacant. 

“Either Graham (No. 2 in the , 
world) or Kaylor (No. 3) will 
have earned the right to be 
recognized as the l e adin g con- 
tender for the world raiddle- 
weight championship,'' Barren 
said. 

Though both boxers have in 
the past threatened to knock 
each other's block off, there was 
no chance of the needle getting 
to them when they met at the 
same casino yesterday. For 
apart from the fact that Etyta’s 
men had brought him in hand- ! 
cuffs — just to make sore - the 
(women were suitably tactful for . 
the occasion. “Graham presents 
a tmique set of problems." 
Kaylor, of West Ham, said, “bat 
I am confident of solving them. 
Christmas is coming early for 
the fans. It win be a classic 
confrontation." - - 

And Graham: “Kaylor has a 
huge following and is better 
known than roe, even if I am the 
champion. He is strong and 
courageous hot I will he better 
known after I have beaten him." 

Graham, unbeaten in 36 con- 
tests with 19 mside-cbe-distance 
wins, is managed by B. J. 
Eastwood, who took Barry 
McGnigan to the world feather- 
weight title. Graham will do his 
basic training at Sheffield before 
going to Belfast for the last 
fortnight to apply the finishing 
loaches. Eastwood is bringing 
over as sparring partners two 
American middJewetgbts, falL 
straight and upright boxers who 
fight like Kaylor. 

Kaylor. who has had 35 
contests, won 32, and stopped 26 
opponents, has no fears about 
Graham's southpaw stance and 
believes the champion wfl] go 
the same way as Christie. 

• George Francis, the leading 
boxing trainer, has decided to 
join Terry Lawless, the leading 
British manager, on a perma- 
nent basis at his Canning Town 
training camp. 

Francis has lived in .the 
United States preparing Mickey 
Duffs boxers, notably John 
Mugxbi, for his cLaMeoge 
against Marvin Hagler since he 
managed John Conteh to the 
world light-heavyweight title. 

“I have decided ft is time to 
settle back in England,” Frauds 
said. Duff’s boxers are now 
likely to be handled by Bobby 
Neill, who trained Lloyd Hon- 
eygfaan to his world welter- 
weight victory over Don Carry. 


MOTOR RACING 


Radical moves 
to cut power 
are anticipated 

Paris (Reuter) — The Inter- 
national Motor Sport Federa- 
tion (FISA) will today decide on 
moves aimed at cutting the 
colossal power of Formula One 
engines - 

The FISA executive will , 
tackle major rules changes for 
Formula One, rallying and 
sports car racing in a year which 
has seen fatal crashes in all three 
branches of the sport. 

The federation decreed last 
June that the meeting would 
choose either the reduction of 
cubic capadty in Formula One 
engines or the compulsory use of 
normally aspirated engines with 
a maximum capacity of 3,500cc. 

from January 1 L 1989. 

The decisions made will have 
a far-reaching impact on manu- 
facturers and teams. The Re- 
nault group, pioneers of the 
turbo, annourtixd last week il 
was pulling out of engine 
construction at least for 1987.

Many observers will construe 
ibis as some son of victory for 
the nine players who petitioned 
for Downey's removal in Feb- 
ruary and ' "March. The- Bad- 
minton Association of England, 
however, regards this as some- 
thing that had always been 
planned. 

“It was always our intention 
to divide the coaching and 
managerial parts of the job. and 
it was only a matter when funds 
became available to do this." 
Air Vice-Marshal Larry Lamb, 
the BAE chief executive, said. 
“This has now come about with 
an increase in a Sports Council 
grant and a good financial year 
For our events. There is no 
question that this has occurred 
through player power." 

Martin Dew. the former Euro- 
pean doubles champion, who 
was one of the leaders of the 
petition, said. “It probably is a 
victory for us. if a delayed and a 
quiet one. I am surprised, t 
thought we had got nowhere.

EQUESTRIANISM 

Bevan bids 
farewell 
with style 

By Jenny MacArthur 

Ros Bevan. who is riding her I 
father's outstanding eight-year- . 
old gelding. Horton Point, for 
the last time before he has to be 
sold for financial reasons, has 
gone into the lead at the end of 
the dressage phase of the 
Chatsworth Audi horse trials in 
Derbyshire. 

Miss Bevan. a member of the 
Young Riders gold medal win- 
ning team last year, is a -fraction 
of a point ahead of Anne-Marie 
Taylor, on Rolebec Miler, both 
riders having produced tests of 
exceptional quality, MissTaylor 
received 193 marks from Frau 
Erika Andersen, the West Ger- 
man judge. who awarded her the 
maximum marks of ten for part 
of her canter work — this is the 
horse's first advanced three-day 
event 

Miss Taylor’s older brother, 
Nigd. achieved his best test to 
date on the' Malfinson Deimy 
Group’sAcfc l 

Miss Bevan, who does not ! 
have a sponsor, said yesterday, 
that both of her top horses, 
Horton Point and Horton Ven- 
ture. are to be spld next week. , 
even though it would “break her i 
heart" to .pan with them. She j 
said she could not go on 
expecting her lather, a sheep- 
former in Wales, to shoulder the 
heavy overdraft which keeping 
the two horses had incurred. 

eKbvnaiw: t. 


We were just trying to get the 
best arrangements for the. play- . .. 
ere and I think we have. 

Other developments midit 
easily be overlooked m this 
sudden twist in the Downey 
affair. Many or the managerial 
functions have already been

Whetnall anyway. 

Furthermore. Tom Marrs, the 
BAE promotions manager, has 
also been performing the task of 
making contact with overseas 
officials and creating deals. 
Marre is now the events direc- 
tor.' And. finally, the BAE is 
expecting a substantial injection 
of cash from the International 
Olympic Committee, which has 
apparently recognized the long- ' 
term requirements of the 
development of the sport. If so, 
Downey’s new coaching role ,- 
leading up to 1992 could be the - 
most important development of

CYCLING ; 

Break with 
tradition : 
for Bauer 

From John WBcockson : 
limerick 

Steve Bauer, who has ? f ic- 
q uired a reputation as a n< 7 ice »■ 
guy, showed a meaner strqjak 
yesuerday in winning the second - 
stage and take over the leader- 
ship of the Nissan internal iowal . 
classic. The Canadian, aged 2*7. . 
broke dear l.S miles from thte 
finish, approaching a round* 
about on the second lap of a) 
finishing circuit around; 
Limerick. 

On (he swoop through the city; 
streets, which were bathed in 
sunshine and lined by perhaps ’ 
50,000, Bauer was joined by 
I Jacques Hanegraaf the former 
Duicb champion, and Steve 
Jones, from Birmingham! 

The three, led the bunch by - 
200 yards into O’Connell Street 
as team colleagues of Eric 
Vandetaetden; of Belgium, the 
race leader.- chased hard. 

But their efforts were too latc 
and the seven seconds Bauer 
gained were enough to give him 
the leadership by three seconds. 

The Canadian was relieved to p 
win his vdlow jersey because his - 



team van was broken into three 
days ago and all of bis racing 
jerseys were stolen except one. 

The enthusiastic crowd was 
disappointed that Sean Kelly, 
their hero, was again defeated in 
the sprint by Vanderaerden.

FRIDAY OCTOBER 3 1986 


si Lost for words as 


League brings 


on a new sponsor 


By Stoart Jones, Football Correspondent 


The Football League an- 
nounced yesterday that it had 
reached agreement with a new 
sponsor. Philip Carter, the 
I ragtip president, revealed 
that the Today newspaper had 
taken over from Canon, who 
withdrew at the end of last 
season. The deal was said to be 
“the biggest in British sport". 

The stage had been carefully 
designed to protea the iden- 
tity of the new benefactors and 
the curtain of secrecy bad been 
lifted with theatrical drama. 
As if on cue, the newspaper’s 
representatives filed in from 
the wings and stepped, sheep- 
ishly it seemed, into the glare 
of publicity. 

So far, so good. But the 
show that had opened 
smoothly enough collapsed 
instantly into chaos. The first 
question, after the presenta- 
tion has been completed, was 
simple and obvious. How 
much was the deal worth and 
for how long would it last? The 
response was stunning. 

Neither Carter nor Terry 
Cassidy, the managing direc- 
tor of News (UK) Limited, 
who was speaking on behalf of 
Today, was prepared to say. 
For several minutes, they were 
prompted by an audience that 
was growing increasingly and 
understandably impatient. 
Why, after all. the curious 
reluctance? 

The League, and particu- 
larly its management commit- 
tee. has shown an 
extraordinary propensity for 
shooting itself in the foot 
recently but never before 
could it be accused oflosing its 
tongue. Ken Bates eventually 
found his and gave the 
information. 

“In excess of four million 
pounds over two years with a 
one-year option," he said. 


More, in other words, than 
had been offered by Canon. 
Indeed, the sum is likely to be 
closer to £5 million once 
Today's advertisments on ra- 
dio and television have been 
taken into account They will 
be worth £500.000 a year. 

The financial rewards for 
the champions of each di- 
vision are to remain the same 
(£50,000 for the first £25,000 
for the second and £12,500 
each for the third and fourth). 
The League was contractually 


committed to keeping the 
r than that for 


Ift a p n prize lower than 

the winners of the Li tile woods 
Cup. 

As before, every club will 
benefit from the overall pool 


Seven-year hitch 

Billy Horner yesterday 
stood down after 10 years as 
Hartlepool manager, following 
the previous night’s 5-0 home 
defeat by Crewe. Homer was 
asked to resign by John 
Smart the chairman, who said 
the dab would honour 
Horner's contract until n ext 
summer. 


in exchange for free tickets 
and advertisments on the 
perimeter of pitches and in 
programmes. In addition. To- 
day plan to assist the League, 
as Cassidy put it, in its attempt 
to “clean up the Image of the 
game". . _ 

Barrie GilL the chairman of 
CSS Promotions Limited, 
who were appointed the 
League's consultants, admit- 
ted that at least one of the 
eight potential sponsors 
dropped out of the running 
because of hooliganism. Gra- 
ham Kelly, the League's sec- 
retary. was encouraged, 
however, that "so many were 


interested in spite of all the 
troubles" 

Carter said of the deal: “It is 
a psychological boost for 
everyone committed to the 
future of the sport. Over 95 
per cent of the clubs are 
sponsored and, with the sup- 
port we already have from 
Liulewoods and Freight 
Rover, this completes a com- 
prehensive coverage and con- 
firms football’s appeal" 

Cassidy conceded that the 
League had driven a hard 
bargain. The figure would 
have been higher had the deal, 
which is linked to the new 
agreement with the television 
companies, been launched at 
the beginning of the season. It 
would have been lower if it 
had not covered the centenary 
celebrations next year. 

Kelly, who staled that an- 
other newspaper had been 
involved in the talks that 
lasted for a mere two months, 
insisted that the sponsors will 
not be privy to exclusive 
stories involving the League. 
Yet he did agree that there are 
problems inherent in the 
name of the benevolent 
organization. 

The nation must become 
accustomed to yesterday’s To- 
day League results, today’s 
Today League fixtures and 
tomorrow’s Today League 
form. As from yesterday, that 
is. At best, it is an unwieldy 
title. Some, such as Carter and 
Cassidy, may think that it is, 
at worst, a tongue twister. 

Gemon to leave 

Irvin Gernon, Ipswich 
Town’s former - England 
under-21 international de- 
fender. has been granted a 
transfer by Ipswich Town. 
Gernon. aged 23, has made 87 
appearances for Ipswich. 


Hay reads riot act 
to wayward player 


By Hugh Taylor 


Maurice Johnston had 


scored two goals for Celtic in a 
i Cup ii 


European Cup match, yet with 
the cheers of the crowd still 
ringing in his ears be left 
Parkhead on Wednesday night 
with tears in his eyes. 

The sometime-wayward 
favourite of the Celtic legions 
had again discovered that he 
was no favourite of his long- 
suffering manager, David 
Hay. 

And he also found there had 
been a drastic change in the 
outlook of a man considered 
one of the most tolerant and 
laid-back of all those chaxged 
with guiding the fortunes of a 
great club. 

Johnston was told in no 
uncertain terms that his latest 
transgression had to be. his 
last. The player, who joined 
Celtic from Watford, upset his 
manager by putting his name 
to a newspaper article which 


said be wanted to join Man- 
chester United or another 
leading English club, if he 
were not satisfied with the 
terms of a new contract to be 
signed at the end of the season. 

“If I find out he has been 
raid for this article, he'll be 
fined," Hay said yesterday. “If 
players speak out like that to’ 
newspapers or give signed 
interviews without my per- 
mission, the club will con- 
fiscate any money paid to 
them." 

Hay said, however, that he 
had no objection to Johnston 
seeking better terms. “I agree 
to star players receiving star 
payment and I feel that in due 
course Celtic will be discus- 
ing a new contract with ibis in 
mind.” 

But he said firmly that 
Johnston would not be al- 
lowed to leave Parkhead until 
his contract had expired.

Nottingham Forest will ex- 
ert extra vigileoce at 
tomorrow's home game with 
Manchester United as the 
dub's chairman, Maurice 
Roworth, backed manager 
Brian Gough’s campaign to 
purge the City ground of its 
hooligan element. 

Forest arc still incensed by 
the demonstration last Sat- 
urday as Charlie Nicholas, of 
Arsenal, was removed by 
stretcher. They are eager to 
avoid further mflamatory in- 
cidents during the United 
visit 

With Forest setting the pace 
at foe top and Ron Atkinson's 
job on the line as United 
struggle near the bottom, the 
occasion is potentially explo- 
sive. Police and stewards will 
be alerted to deal quickly with 
any suggestion of trouble and 
supporters have been urged to 
concentrate only on Forest's 
emerging championship 
challenge. 

“That could have been my 
own son who was carried off 
on a stretcher last Saturday " 
Gough said. "I wouldn’t want 
one single idiot shouting at 
him as ^they did Charlie 
Nicholas." 

• The takeover bid for New- 
port County by foe American 
businessman, Jerry Sherman, 
is in jeapardy following 
revelations that he has debts 
amounting to half a million 
dollars in Canada. 

• Mark Falco has asked for a 
further 48 hours to think over 
his proposed £350.000 move 
from Tottenham Hotspur to 
Watford, whose manager, 
Graham Taylor, said: “Mark 
phoned me this morning and 
wants to think over the move. 
The problem is not about 
joining us. but about leaving 
Tottenham. He and his family 
are Tottenham through and 
through." 

Meanwhile. Derby County 
have rejected an offer of more 
than £300.000 from Watford 
for their forward, Bobby 
Davison. 

• More than 5.000 people in 
Luton signed a petition to be 
presented to foe Sports Min- 
ister. Mr Dick Tracey, calling 
for the club’s re-instatement in 
the Liulewoods Cup. Luton 
have been banned for refusing 
to allow Cardiff City support- 
ers into Kennilworth

Lyle is 
star in 

game of 


errors 


By Mitchell Platts 

Sandy Lyle moved past 
Howard Clark in foe Suntory 
woiid match play champion- 
ship at Wentworth yesterday 
after a dour struggle spoiled by 
the unsporting behaviour of a 
few unruly spectators. More 
than 1Z000 thronged the 
fairways but a handful of them 
annoyed Clark at such critical 
moments that foe golfer came 
off the course more concerned 
with foe game’s image than his 
own anethole defeat 

“There is an unruly element 
coming into golf" Gaik said. 
“There are some idiots among 
foe crowd and people who 
antagonize and upset you at 
times. There were boos and 
jeers today and I find it a 
shame when your bad shots 
are cheered. Maybe a few of 
them had a few bob on Sandy 
to win." 

Clark is susceptible to being 
easily distracted and it was a 
camera click on his back- 
swing at the short 14th in foe 
afternoon which led to him 
falling two holes behind for 
the first time in the match. 
Even so, he was entitled to feel 
aggrieved when one spectator 
' gled in the crowd when 

irk left his putt short for a 

half after escaping from the 
trees. 

It represented a swing in 
fortune-at a critical time in a 
36-holes contest which, for 
most of foe morning, had 
weaved hs way through a 
comedy of errors before both 
Lyle and Clark resurrected 
their games in keeping with 
their reputations of being the 
two finest players in British 
golf this year. 

Lyle was betrayed by his 
putter early on so that Gaik 
was able to go two holes ahead 
after the 1 1th although bis 
lead was reduced to one by foe 
time the players took lunch. 
They continued to exchange 
holes in foe afternoon though 
Lyle, by single putting each of 
foe first three greens, rediscov- 
ered his confidence with the 
one implement in his bag 
which has so often proved a 
thorn in his side. 

In truth Lyle won the match 
with the assistance of five 
birdies in the last eight holes. 
But Clark admirably took the 
contest to foe last green by 
virtue of holing from 40 feet at 
the I6fo then by pitching close 
at the long 17fo after having 
fallen three holes behind. 

Lyle will now play Tommy 
Nakajima, of Japan, in the 
second round today when the 
attention will most certainly 
centre on the young Spaniard, 
Jose-Maria Olazabal, who 
earned the chance to shake 
hands with Jack Niddaus for 


New Open 
may pull

By Mitchell Platts 


Arnold Palmer, who de- 
clined to compete in the Open 
Championship in July, could 
return next year to play in 
successive events in Britain. 
Palmer is one of the legends of 
foe game hoping to be at- 
tracted to appear in foe new

which, it was announced yes- 


terday, will take place on July

23 to 26, so following on

The PGA European Tour 
and the International Manage-

Butler and Brian Huggett 
would lead the British chal- 
lenge.

Lucky escape 
for Cauthen 


Steve Cauthen. the cham- 
pion jockey who rides Aca- 
tenango, foe German colt in 
Sunday’s Prix de 1'Arc de 
Triomphe, narrowly escaped 
injury at Newmarket yes- 
terday when Sameek reared in 
the stalls before the Blood- 
stock and General Insurance 
Nursery. 

Sameek threw himself back, 
throwing Cauthen. then twist- 
ed. before rolling to the 
ground and squeezing out 
under foe gate. 

Cauthen came back saying: 
“Luckily. I’m fine." Sameek 
was withdrawn, not under 
orders, and returned with a 
bandaged near-foreleg.

No avail: Clark digs out but loses (Photograph: Ian Stewart) 


the first time by overcoming 
Lanny Wadkins 2 and 1. 

Wadkins, one of foe most 
exciting exponents of match 


play, could never get his head 
front “ 


in trout from the moment he 
missed the first green. 
Olazabal. who seemed only to 
have to look at foe ball to hole 
out, kept his nerve through- 
out, after covering the first 18 
holes in 66 shots, and he is 
clearly relishing foe encounter 
with Nicklaus. He also bene- 
fited from having foe calming 
influence of Nick de Paul, who 
usually caddies for Severiano 
Ballesteros, at his side. 


“I see no reason why I 
should be nervous," he said. 
Jack is a very good player but 
he is just another player and 
we will start on the first tee all 
square." 

Rodger Davis, of Australia, 
was four down after 14 holes 
but he recovered to beat Nick 
Price, of South Africa, 2 and l 
to earn the opportunity of 
meeting Ballesteros, the 
holder, today. Joe Ozaki, of| 
Japan, will face Greg Norman, 
of Australia, in foe other 
quarter-final after completing 
a superb 7 and 6 victory over 
Ben Crenshaw.

their spirits had now been

facing Asian teams much 
more difficult. 

In addition to this, he 
thought West Germany,

chance of winning the trophy. 
He made particular mention

England pair

ban warning 



By Paul Martin 


Two England fast 
Greg Thomas “d 
Radford, are gorag ahead with 
plans to play cowi P 
South Africa this winter, in 
defiance of a warning tha t 
they, and other potential mem- 
bers of England's team, may 
be barred from next year s 
World C»P fa **“ 

Pakistan. 

The Sooth Africans say they 
expect a few dozen county 
cricketers this season, though 
substantially fewer than foe 

70-odd of last year. AJan 

Green, of Sussex, desaibed 
the warning as “blackmail 
and flew out yesterday eve- 
ning; Radford arrived yes- 
terday morning to play again 
for Transvaal; and Thomas 
ys tie will stick to his plans 
to leave on Monday.

Unacceptable risk 
for players to go 


The warning, reported fa 
The Times yesterday, came 
from N JLP. Salve, a leading 
Indian politician and former 
president of India’s cricket 
Board of Control, who is also 
chairman of die World Cup 
comnutttee. “I ardently feel it 
is a risk for any player to go-J 
am fearful rt would not be 
acceptable, " he said in Delhi. 

The West Indies has inti- 
mated it will, next year, for- 
mally propose blacklisting and 
Hanning from Test cricket any 
players who retain cricketing 
links with South Africa. 

Dr Ali Bacher, the Sooth 
African Cricket Union’s chief 
executive, has irritated Lind’s 
by expressing his “fervent 
hope" that the hundreds of 
English cricketers who have 
played, or coached, in South 
Africa over the years will 
“make their voices heard and

Raman Subba Row, the Test

terday with uncharacteristic 
blindness, suggesting that foe 
call was an nuwananted inter- 
ference fa English cricket's 
affairs. “With great respect, it 
is none of his business," Mr 
Snfaba Row said. Dr Bacher 
should give advice only to his 
own players, not to England's, 
he added. 

As to the stance England 
will take, Mr Subba Row 
would say only that it was 
“obviously a very delicate 
situation and we will discuss it 
fully, face-to-face, with the 
Indians and others at foe
