forfeited goods to compensa- 
tionfor their victim s. 

Mr Norman Fowler; Sec- 
retary of Slate for Social 
Services, announced a na- 
tional campaign to reduce 
hospital waiting lists and a 
£3 billion hospital banding 
programme. There will be 
additional revenue for more 


heart by-pass, hip replacement 
and eye operations for the 
elderly, better finalities for 
mentally handicapped chil- 
dren and more bone marrow 
transplant operations along 
with an intensification of the 
fight against cervical cancer. 

Mr George Younger, Sec- 
retary of State for Defence, 
delighted Cabinet colleagues 
and emerged as a new party 
favourite after a speech in 
which he said that the Conser- 
vatives were now the only 
force that stood between Brit- 
ain and the disaster of a 
nuclear war. 

Mr Neil Kirmock’s derision 
to make Labour's non-nuclear 
defence policy the centre pi ece 
of its appeal to the electorate 
has pleased the Cabinet and 
been oneof the main factors in 
the mood of unity at the

By Philip Webster, Chief Political Correspondent 


The Government -yesterday 
announced a £15 million plan - 
to. improve protection for 
j»ssenggrs on tire. London 

^Station platforms, subways 
and/escalatbrihdfis are ro be 
fitted . with radfocab&jgto 
enable staff and transport 
poifee below ground to make 
contact immediately in emer- 
genries with station superin- 
tendents, police control head- 
quarters, and the fire sendee. 

Concealed parts of station 
platforms are to be dosed off; 
more dosed rircuit surveil- 
lance equipment- will be 
brought in and, m an experi- 
mental scheme; stations with 
bad records of violence are to 
get passenger 'alarm “panic 
buttons” to enable people to 
call staff if they feel in danger. 

The plan was unveiled by 
Mr Joint Moore, Secretary of 
State for Transport, at the 
Conservative Party Confer- 
ence in Bournemouth. 

Mr Moore said afterwards: 
“Fears and worry about crime 
are deteifiDg some people 
from using the Underground.” 
The money is being made 
available to London Regional 


Transport over the next three 
years for special measures. 

. The move rimes after the

Minister - last January of'-a

Therewerel.600 crimes 
involving violence on the 
Underground' last year; the 
total of -notifiable crimes was 
15,000. Latest figures show 
that violence has been felling. 
Upto August there had been a 
163 per cent fell compared 
with the same period last year. 

LRT said yesterday: “We 
welcome the Government’s 
commitment to a safe Under- 
ground. Crime on the system 
is low in statistical terms but 
there is no doubt that it is high 
in passengers* perceptions.” 
According to LRT there is one 
violent incident for every half 
a million passenger journeys.

Fowler to 
cut health 
waiting list 

By Richard Evans 
Political Correspondent 

A nationwide crackdown on 
lengthy hospital waiting lists 
and a £3 billion hospital 
bedding programme were un- 
veiled yesterday by Mr. Nor- 
man Fowler. Secretary of State 
for Social Services. 

He promised improved 
treatment for the elderly with 
substantially, more hip 
replacement, heart by-pass, 
and eye operations by the end 
of the decade. 

The Conservative parte 
conference in Bournemouth 
was also told there would be 
more bone marrow transplant 
operations for children; better 
facilities for mentally handi- 
capped youngsters and a step- 
ping up/ of foe fight, against 

cervical ’cancer: . 

-tom- --r-Hisjipbeat message osxoue 
Office, of foe key political issues in 
the run up to the next general 
election appeared to satisfy 
many of the doubters within 
Conservative ranks. . 

What he did not Id! con- 
ference was that (here win be 
no extra cash for his package 
of measures. ■ ' 

The misgivings within, the 
Conservative party about the 
Government's National 
Health Service record sur- 
faced repeatedly during the 
debate with complaints about 
hospital waiting lists and lade 
of cash for day-to-day running 
of hospitals. 

More than 600,000 are now 
waiting for hospital treatment 
Mr Fowler accepted too 
many people were stul waiting 
too long and said: “That is 
why I have asked every health 
authority to report to me on 
their local position: to set out 
where and why patients are 
waiting most: mid to say how 
that position can be 
unproved”. 


Currie booed by delegates 


By Richard Evans 

Political Correspondent 

Mrs Edwina Currie, foe 
outspoken junior health min- 
ster, was booed and faced calls 
for her resignation at the 
Conservative party con- 
ference yesterday following 
her controversial remarks 
about, northerners and thtir 
eating habits. 

The humiliating rebuke, 
witnessed by the Prime Min- 
ister, was sparked off by Mrs 
Heather ScoU, chairman of 
foe Darlington constitutnency 
: who received prolonged 
applause after describing Mrs 
Currie's remarks as “thought- 
less and patronising.” 

Mrs Currie sal tight lipped

during the verbal lashing. Bat

Print union rejects 
Wapping offer 

By Tim Jones 

The main print union in- battle and they can’t imagine 


volved in the Wapping dis- 
pute yesterday rejected the 
final offer by News Inter- 
national which included com- 
pensation of £58 million. 

Mr Rupert Murdoch, chair- 
man of foe company, said 
there would be uo other offer 
to the union, which represents 
4,000 former employees of the 
company who went on strike 
eight months ago and were 
dismissed. 

Sogat '82, foe biggest union 
involved, turned down die of- 
fer by 2372 votes to 960 with 
17 spoilt papers, a majority of 
1,412. 

The resuft of the ballot was 
greeted with a huge cheer by 
850 members; of foe National 
Graphical Association who 
were meeting in London to de- 
cide foeir response^icr foe 
offer. 

Mr Murdoch; said: “We are 
not surprised but we are disap- 
pointed of course at tins 
result.” . 

He said foe company had 
made it dear that it h*l no 
confidence in the way Sogat 
had conducted its ballot 

Stressing that there would 
be no new negotiations, Mr 
Murdoch said foe company 
was undo* no legal, moral or 
business obligation to hold 
finher talks. 

- He saufcTbese people 
should have realized that we 
mean what we say. I am sony 
there has been this discord but 
most of them now have other 
jobs and I would advise foe 
rest to get jobs. That, alas, is 
foe end of the matter." . 

He added: “For 50 years 
they have won every single 


they should lose one or come 
to an honourable agreement." 
Mr Murdoch criticized the 
way the ballot bad been con- 
ducted at branch level and 
said there had been cases of in- 
timidation. 

Miss Brenda Dean, Sogai’s 
general secretary said: “This 
rejection has shown that Sogat 
is prepared to see foe dispute 
towards its first anniversary 
and then carry on, possiblly 
into a long hard winter. I am 
convinced we did foe right 
thing.” 

National officers of the 
NGA said they were “delight- 
ed” with the Sogat reseult 

A statement issued by News 
International last night said: 
“We are disappointed but not 
surprised by the Segal ballot. 

" “The company voiced its 
concerns on the manner in 
which it was being conducted 
on September 26 when we 
wrote to Miss Dean of Stmt 
and Mr Willis of the TUC 
saying we were freezing our 
offer. 

“We called on foe TUC to 
coooduct and or monitor a

ceived a ballot papa* and was 
given the opportunity to ex- 
press his or her views on the

interference or undue pres- 
sure.

jected our request for such a 
ballot and proceeded with a 
voting procedure m which we 
had no confidence: 

“The majority of people on

Sliding sterling 
puts Lawson 
under pressure 

By Darid Smith, Economics Correspondent 


The Chancellor of foe Ex- 
chequer, Mr Nigel Lawson, 
feces foe toughest test of his 
political career today. In his 
speech to foe Conservative 
Party Conference this morn- 
ing, he has to restore con- 
fidence in the pound and 
convince delegates that there 
are better times ahead for the 
economy. 

Yesterday, foe pound fell to 
new lows as dealers decided 
that foe Bank of England was 
hamstrung on interest rates, at 
least until foe Party Con- 
ference is over. 

The sterling index, which 
measures foe pound's average 
value against other currencies, 
fell from 68.1 to 67.1. ao all- 
time low. Since foe summer of 
last year, foe pound's average 
value has dropped by 20 per 
cent 

It fell 3.4 pfennigs to a new 
low of DM2.8382 and by 1.45 
cents to SI. 4205. 

The Chancellor, inter- 
viewed on BBC Television 
yesterday, refused to be drawn 
on what was likely to happen 
to interest rates or foe ex- 
change rate. And he main- 
tained that foe time was not 
right for entry into the Euro- 
pean Monetary System. 

Mr Lawson conceded that 
political uncertainties were 
playing a pan in the pound's 
weakness. “I think markets 
around the world are aware of 


the great damage that would 
be done to the British econ- 
omy if a Labour government 
were to be elected", he said. 

Bui currency analysis were 
blaming Mr Lawson’s own 
political sensitivities for foe 
slide. “T he pound is a one- 

Rates firm, page 21 

way sell as long as the markets 
believe that Mr Lawson can't 
raise interest rates” Mr 
Jeremy Hale of Goldman 
Sachs said. “And everything 
coming out of Bournemouth 
so far suggests we will have an 
expansionary pre-election 
Budget." 

The Chancellor's speech to- 
day is not expected to contain 
any new message for the 
markets. 

Mr Lawson has a speech 
planned for next week at the 
Mansion House, in the City, 
and this is usually the occa- 
sion for discussing foe details 
of monetary policy. 

Interest rates edged up in 
the London money markets 
yesterday, and dealers remain 
certain that base rates will 
have to rise next week, prob- 
ably by I per cent to 1 1 per 
cent. This could force up 
mortgage rates 

Even so. it is unlikely that 
this would do more than 
steady sterling temporarily. 


Work ban 
to end 
at Lucas 

By Craig Seton 

The overtime banal Lucas, 
the car component makers, 
which led to a shutdown of 
production at State-owned 
Austin Rover, is likely to end 
today following crisis talks 
between management and 
unions. 

About 6,000 workers at 
Luca& Electrical m the Mid- 
lands are to be urged to end 
their sanctions and pay talks 
are expected to resume tomor- 
row. 

However, Austin Rover, 
which laid off 12,000 workers 
on Wednesday, does not ex- 
pect to resume production 
until Monday. 

An estimated 8,000 cars will 
have been lost with a show- 
room value in excess of £30 
million. 

The management of Lucas 
Electrical told shop stewards 
yesterday that Rover had 
warned it would look else- 
where for components if Lu- 
cas could not put its house in 
order. 

Lucas management re- 
vealed that it had agreed to 
reverse foe sacking ofa worker 
at its Cannock plant which led 
to a walk-out on Wednesday 
by all 600 men there.

Pillow talk 
‘about 
murders’ 

The girl friend of Jeremy 
Bamber sobbed in the witness 
box yesterday as she told how 
the White House Farm massa- 
cre haunted her. 

Miss Julie MugfonL aged 
22. who betrayed Mr Bamber 
to foe police four weeks after 
the killings, described the 
months of pillow talk in which 
he had allegedly outlined his 
murder plans. 

She told foe jury at Chelms- 
ford Crown Court, where Mr 
Bamber denies five murders at 
his parents' Essex farmhouse 
last year, that he decided to go 
ahead with them after testing 
his willpower by strangling 
farmyard rats with his bare 
hands. 

Then Miss Mugford, a 
teacher from Colchester, 
spoke of foe designer suit 
which Mr Bamber bought for 
nearly £200 for his parents' 
funeral and described how 
they got drunk on champagne 
and cocktails the night after 
foe funeral. 

She said that Mr Bamber, 
who stood to inherit £436,000 
from foe deaths of his adop- 
tive parents and half-sister, 
became the devil incarnate to 
her even though she continued 
to love him after foe killings.

Kalb goes 
in US row 
with Libya 

From Mohsin Ali 
Washington 

Mr Bernard Kalb an- 
nounced yesterday foal he had 

resigned as chief spokesman of 
the Stale Department, follow- 
ing the controversy surround- 
ing the Administralon’s rep- 
orted disinformation 
programme directed at Libya. 

Mr Kalb, a wen-known 
former television journalist, 
has been chief spokesman and’ 
Assistant Secretary of State for. 
Public Affairs for the past two 
years. 

Speaking to reporters at the 
State Deportment, he empha- 
sized that he had no quarrel 
with Mr George Shultz, foe 
Secretary of State, whom he 
described as a “man of integ- 
rity and oHfibOity.*' Mr Kalb 
said he did not want his own 
credibility to be caught up or 
subsumed in the controversy. 

The Administration Iras 
said it has not tried to mislead

Magazine 
article 
is banned 

The Government yesterday 
won a High Court mjuction 
banning foe New Statesman 
magazine from publishing a 
“confidential” dispatch to Sir 
Geoffrey Howe, foe Foreign 
Secretary, from a former Brit- 
ish ambassador to Saudi 
Arabia. 

Mr Justice Saville, in a two 
hour private hearing, granted 
foe injunction to Sir Michael 
Havers, the Attorney-General 

A Foreign Office spokes- 
man said he had “no idea” 
how foe document had finest 
into .the hands of the 
magazine. 

The message was sent by Sir 
James Craig in 1984. It was not 
thought to contain any 

information that could cause a 

breach of security. 

Instead it was a “descrip- 
tion of Saudi society, address- 
ing foe question of what 
Saudis were like". It is be- 
lieved the Government coukl

baby halfway out of the

sive surgery on his. tiny uri-

Since .foe news broke this 
week. Dr Harrison has come 
under attack from other doc-

tions' about whether foe

Critics have pointed to. the 
fact that foe operation could 
lead to renal failure in foe 
chikL and necessitated diffi- 


cult kidney transplant 
: They also say that the 
operation may have so scarred ' 
foe uterus of foe-mother as to 
complicate any further preg- 
nancies. 

Dr Harrison has been sub-

NEWS SUMMARY 


CPSA fight for 
votes change 

The right-dominated national executive of the Civil and 
Public Serv ices Association will on Monday seek to change 
the union's voting system (Tim Jones writes).It is part of a 
plan to ensure that Mr John Maereadie, a supporter of 
Militant Tendency, foils to become general secretary in a 
re-run election. _ . 

A firesh election is to be held after a report from the Sec- 
toral Reform Society saying that 21 branches, with a 
membership of 2*270, did not have an oportumty to vote 
during the last election in which Mr Macreadie de fe ated 
his moderate rival, Mr John Ellis, by only 121 votes. 

When it meets on Monday, the executive ^determined 
to introduce a postal central balloting system, in which the 
votes would be sent by individual members to a single ad- 
dress where they would be counted by independent 
returning officers, . . , , 

Although the Electoral Reform Society said there was no 
hard evidence ofballot rising. Mis Marion Chambers, the 
union's president, said yesterday she knew that one 
individual had signed for 15 ballot forms. 

Screening ruled out 

Sir Geoffrey Howe, the Foreign Secretary, yesterday 
said Britain would not follow Italy after it announced plans 


terrorism (Martin Fletcher writes). 

In a letter to Mr GrevOle Janner, labour MP for 
Leicester West, who sapporn die Italians , Sir Geoffrey 
said that Britain would scan diplomatic bags if there were 
strong grounds for suspicion. That knowledge would act as 
a deterrent. 

“A major disadvantage of a more widespread scanning » 
that it would make our own bags vulnerable to general and 
indiscriminate challenge. For security reasons we cannot 
allow the protection of our bags to be impaired.*' 


Red Rum 
in bronze 

Red Rum, the triple 
Grand National winner, is 
being Immortalized in a 
life-size bronze statue 
(David Sapsted writes). 

The sculpture, s t andi n g 
162 bands, being done by 
Mr Philip Blacker at his 
studio in Clmnfield, 
Oxfordshire, is expected to 
be ready for casting in a 
month. 

Commissioned by 
Seagram, sponsors of the 
Grand National, die two- 
ton statue will be unveiled 
in 1988 - the 150th 
anniversary of the race — 
and will stand in the pad- 
dock area at Ain tree. 


The Mail 
wins ban 

A newspaper yesterday 
claimed a rival publication 
was not entitled to exclu- 
sive rights to wedding 
photos of pregnant Mrs 
Deborah BdL who is in a 
coma. 

Express Newspapers ar- 
gued that Mrs Bell owned 
the copyright jointly with 
her husband Ian and he 
could not sell the rights to

Government 
defuses the 
Denning 
EEC revolt 


By SbeflaGuna and Richard Owen 

Government defused thor of the Parliament's report 
on relations with the Council 


The 

the revolt led by Lend Den- 
ning, the former Master of the 
Rous, in the House of Lords 
last night on a Bill to speed 
deciaotHmaldng in the EEC 
Instead, Lord Denning, who 
has become something of a 
folk hero in the Lords, came 
under attack for being out- 
dared and “living in the times 
of Palmerston”. 

Conservative pens rarely 
seen in the chamber, plus the 
support from the Alliance, 
gave the Government a 
comfortable majority over 
wrecking amendments to the 
European Communities (Am- 
endment) BilL 
Lord Denning, with a group 
of Labour and Conservative 
peers, has been campaigning 
against the Bill, arguing that it 
would reduce the Queen to the 
status of a state governor and 
lead to a federal Europe. 

A strict guillotine prevented 
a full debate on the three-page 
Bill under which member 
stales can rarely use a veto to 
block derisions of the Euro- 
pean CounciL 

Among those who sup- 
ported the first main wrecking 
amendment were members of 
the Labour front bench and 
Lord Wilson of Rievauix, the 
former Prime Minister. 

Lord Tordoffi leader of the 
Liberal whips, said: “It is dear 
that the Labour Party has not 
moved its ground on its 
attitude to tire European 
Community when the leader 
of the Opposition (Lord 
Cledwyn) and their Chief 
Whip (Lord POnsonby) voted 
for a wrecking amendment**. 

European MPs were almost 
unanimous yesterday in dis- 
missing Lord Denning’s fears 
about a loss of national sov- 
ereignty. 

Tney argued that die 
amendments to the Treaty of 
Rome, for from being radical, 
did not go for enough in 
increasing the powers of die 
European Parliament. 

“Lord Denning's concerns 
are wholly misplaced,’’ Mr 
Christopher Prout, Conser- 
vative European MP for 
Shropshire and Stafford and a 
constitutional lawyer, said. 

“The transfer of sovereignty 
to EEC institutions from 
Westminster has been taking 
place ever since we joined in 
1973. It is not a matter of 
whether you think it is a good 
thing or a bad thing, it is a 
fact.” 

Mr Prout said that, al- 
though the Single European 
Act enshrining the reforms 
was inadequate, it opened up 
“exciting possibilities” for 
increasing die European Par- 
liament's democratic control 
over Brussels, “and that is 
something Lord Denning 


I should support”.

of Ministers, said the long- 
term goal remained “co-de- 
cision-making powers for 
Strasbourg, and in the mean- 
time the Parliament should 
use the reforms to increase its 
say in agricultural spending". 

The Single Act, which 
amends the Treaty of Rome, 
the EEGs founding docu- 
ment, has to pass through all 
12 national parliaments be- 
fore it comes into force on 
January 1 next year. 

It was signed by EEC heads 
of government, including Mrs 
Margaret Thatcher, at the EEC 
summit in Luxembourg in 
December last year. 

It provides for qualified 
majority voting, mainly in 
internal market matters, in the 
Council of Ministers; a second 
reading of legislation by the 
largely consultative European 
Parliament; and a treaty on 
tire coordination ol 
esgn policy. 

“Minimalist" states, such as 
Denmark, resisted foe title 
“Treaty of European Unity", 
arguing that the changes were 
a modest step towards union 
ai best. 

But “maximalist" states, 
such.as Italy, want to build on 
foe reforms to create a united 
Europe. 

Most EEC parliaments have 
completed .foe ratification 
procedures. 

The most intractable oppo- 
sition so for has been en- 
countered not in Britain but in 
West Germany, where foe 
Lander or states feel that the 
treaty amendments not only 
reduce Gentian sovereignty 
but detract from the powers of 
regional govemmenL 
EEC officials none the less 
expect the reforms to be 
ratified on tune. 

“It is absurd to argue that 
foe amendments have been 
introduced by stealth,” one 
official said. 

Officials said the European 
Court of Justice, which guards 
and interprets the Treaty of 
Rome and which takes prece- 
dence over national law, was 
not an alien body but a court 
composed of senior judges 
from all 12 states. 

Similarly, commissioners 
arc drawn from all EEC 
countries as are the members 
of the Council of Ministers, at 
present chaired by Sir 
Howe under the system of a 
rotating presidency. 

Undo- foe new procedures, 
EEC laws will originate as 
Commission proposals and 
wfl] go to the Fariiamem for 
“an opinion” before passing to 
foe Council of Ministers for a 
first reading. 

The proposals or Bill will 
then return to Strasbourg fora 
second reading over a three- 
month period, and automati- 
cally become law if no 
amendments are made.

Austin Rover shutdown 

Buying policy may change 

By Edward Townsend, Industrial Correspondent 


The sudden shutdown of 
Austin Rover as the result of 
the Lucas strike has plunged 
the state-controlled company 
hack into co nt r o v e rsy over its 
purchasing policies. 

It also raises foe question of 
whether British industry can. 
successfully emulate the 
Japanese; 

The co mpa n y 's syste m of 
“preferred suppliers* and its 
paring of stored components to 
the mmimnm to slash COStS 
has left it vulnerable to ex- 
tonal disruption. 

Row is now certain to face 
growing pressure to review its 
policies in the light of foe 
"Lucas' dispute, but the com- 
pany, undo- its new cost- 
conscious chairman, Mr 
Graham Day, will with equal ' 
certainty resist a return to 
having several sqppiiera. 

The company b convinced 
that Its system of exdssne 
suppliers has worked weD 


without; until now, any big 
hiccups. And by adopting a 
version of the Japanese motor 
industry's so-called jnst-ia- 
time delivery operation, it 
chums a five-fold decrease in 
cash tied ap in inventory. 

The BL recovery plan begun 
in the late 1970s by the then 
chairman, Sir Michael 
Edwardes, and which gave 
birth to the Metro, Maestro, 
Montego, Triumph Acclaim, 
Rover 200.series and now the 
Row 800, envisaged a system 
of exclusive suppliers. ■ 

The bulk had to betflK- 
based because of foe political 


bonght-in parts and materials, 
was tiie adoption of "just-in- 
time”. In Japan the concept is 
successful because of continu- 
ously peaceful industrial rela- 
tions and proximity of the 
suppliers to foe car assembly 
operation. 

Rover negotiated a deal with 
British Bond Services, which 
has a warehouse dose to the 
Cowley fitotories, near Oxford. 

Not until they pass foroqgh 
the Cowley gates : is Rover 
invoiced for foe components.

point where the implementa-

mean extra manpower and

Doubts about the Garda's

reported as saying of foe

Newspaper ban in 
libraries ‘political’ 


Three Labour-controlled 
London councils abused their 
powers and put political 
motives above their legal 
obligations by banning News 
International publications 
from public libraries, foe High 
Court was told yesterday. 

A challenge to bans im- 
posed by the CUnurfen, . Ealing , 
and Hammersmith and Ful- 
ham councils is likely to form 
a test case for the 18 other 
local authorities in : England 
and Wales which bar News 
International publications 
from forir library shelves. 

Legal 'proceedings started 
against eight other councils 
are in abeyance, awaiting the 
outcome of the present case. 

News International, 
publishers of The Times, The 
Sunday Times, The Sun and 
News Qf The World* Times 
Newspapers Limited and ag- 
grieved ratepayers from each 
of the three boroughs applied 
for a judicial review of foe 
bans to foe Queen's Bench 
Division, of tire High Court 
before Lord Justice Watkins 
and Mr Justice Kennedy. 

Mr Anthony Lester, QC, 
counsel for Times News- 
papers, said: “This case raises 
issues of general importance 
about the power of local 
authorities to ban newspapers 
from public libraries for politi- 
cal reasons, all because the 
local authority takes sides in 
an industrial dispute or be- 
cause they dislike foe conduct 
of the owner or publisher of a 
newspaper during such a 


national went on strike on 
January 24 this year, and were 
dismissed. The publishers bad 
decided to print their news- 
papers at a new plant at 
Wapping, east London. 

Although the Labour Party 
endorsed a boycott of News 
International newspapers, its 
national local government 
committee said they should be 
available in libraries as “it 
.would not be right to be seen 
to censor public access to 
papere”. 

Mr Lester said this was the 
first time a court had been 
asked to consider a council's 
duties under foe Public 
Li banes and Museums Act, 
1964, which compels them to 
provide “comprehensive and 
efficient" library services. 

He said the grievance was 
that the councils had exercised 
their power and duties for the 
improper and political pur- 
poses of expressing support 
for former employees of news- 
paper companies. 

The three councils deny that 
foe bans were an abuse of 
power under the terms of foe 
Act. and maintain they were 
entitled to take into account 
the industrial relations con- 
duct of the management 
involved. 

The case continues today.

She outlined her two-year 
relationship with Bamber, of- 
ten shaking and breaking 
down with emotion, during 
nve hours in the witness box. 

She also sajd that op one 
occasion she 'attempted to 
smother Bamber with a pillow 
several weeks after the 
murders. 

Later under cross-examina- 
tion she denied that she had 
gone to the police to betray 
Bamber because she had been 
jilted. 

Jeremy Bamber, aged 25, 
denies murdering the five 
members of his family with a 
semi-automatic . 22 /Cnschtuz 
rifle. 

The prosecution claims that 
Miss Mugford told police that 
Bamber had planned the 
killings for months. 

Repeatedly clasping and un- 
clasping her hands, she told 
the jury that she had met the 
dark-haired young former 
when she went for a holiday 
job at a pizza parlour in 
Colchester in November, 
1983. 

She said that by October 
1984 Bamber allegedly was . 
saying that he wanted to get ; 
rid of his parents.; 

“He just said be wanted to . j 
live his own life and he wished 
they were all dead.”

as idle chit-chat they became .

A man watched as his car 
containing the body of his

Central CrimininaJ Court was J 
cold yesterday. 

Mr Michael Worsley, QC, 1 
for the prosecution, told the <

denies murder, allegedly told a 
fellow prisoner that when the ] 
crushed car was melted down, j 
“the body would come to the i 
cop as dross and there would z 
be no other trace". 

Mr Worsley has alleged that 
Mr Barton, aged 46, a minicab 
driver, of Mildenhall Road, 
Clapion. east London, ab- J 
ducted and murdered Keigh- 
ley Barton, aged 14. to stop her *■

methods of killing his parents. 

The first of these was to slip 
tranquillizers into their drinks 
and then' return to White 
House Farm later try foot or 
bicycle and burn the house 
down leaving police to believe 
that NeviU Bamber, his father, 
had fallen asleep and dropped 
a cigarette or a log had fallen 
from the fire. 

Asked her reaction Miss 
Mugford said "I said they 
were pretty vile and foul 
things to say and I would 
rather he didn't say things like 
that to me. They were- hor- 
rible. I also stated it was 
ridiculous to try to bran down 
the house because h would not 
set on fire very easily." .. 

Later, according to JMi$s 
Mugford. Bamber said that if 
he were to kin his parents it 
would be by shooting. 

It was at this stage that 
Bam ber allegedly first realised 
he could use his sister Sheila, 
who had undergone two ner- 
vous breakdowns, as a scape- 
goat in the plot to kilT his 
parents. 

Miss Mugford said: 
"Jeremy said Sheila would be 
a good scapegoat because she 
had been admitted to a mental 
hospital. Due to ber mental 
illness she wasn't in control of 
her senses.” Meanwhile, said 
Miss Mugford, Bamber bad 
told her that he had seen a 
copy of his parents' wfi] and 
assumed that the estate would 
pass to him and Sheila. 

Before allegedly carrying 
out the massacre of his family 
in the early hours of August 7, 
1985 Jeremy captured some 
farmyard rats and killed them 
with his bare hands to test his 
will and discovered that he 
could kill his parents, said 
Miss Mugford. 

On the night before the 
murders Miss Mugford said 
Bamber telephoned her. " He 
said that he had been thinking 
about the crime and it was 
going to be tonight or never. I 
replied -don't be so stupid' 
and disregarded what he said 
but he told me I. would be 
hearing from him later." . 

At 3am the next morning 
she said that she was woken by 
a phone =caH from, him in ' 
which he said ‘'everything 
going weft, someth ing.is wrong 
at therfonn. I havenot had any 
deep all 'night Bye honey., I 
love you lots." 

He made a second call at 
5.40am in which he said that 
Sheifa had gone mad and that 
Julie should not go to work 
because a police car. would 


pick her up and drive her to 
Goldhanger. 

There they embraced and he 
laughed and sakt "I should 
have been an actor”. 

That night when they were 
alone in the lounge Bamber 
allegedly told her that a friend 
called Matthew McDonald, 
who was a mercenary in the 
Far East bad committed the 
murders on Bamber’s instruc- 
tions. 

Miss Mugford said Bamber 
had told her that Mr. Mc- 
Donald was to be paid £2,000. 

Miss Mugford, who was 
dressed in a black skin and 
printed blouse, told Mr An- 
■thony Ariidge, for the prosecu- 
tion, that she had not told of 
these events to the police in a 
statement which she made on 
August 8. 

Asked why she said: "Ini- 
tially I did not want to believe 
what I thought. I was scared to 
believe ft. Jeremy said if 
anything happened to him It 
would also happen to me. He 
said that I could be implicated 
in the crime because I knew all 
about ft." 

Before the first of the two 
funerals which followed the 
massacre Jeremy Bamber 
allegedly went on a spending 
spree treating Julie and friends 
of thefts to expensive meals 
and buying himself a designer 
suit in Colchester for £198 and 
a tie for £30. 

Miss Mugford added: "I 
commented that in public 
Jeremy looked for too happy." 

Feeling increasingly dis- 
traught Miss Mugford went to 
a restaurant on August 31 with 
Bamber. 

“ I said I was feeling guilt for 
both of us and wantednhn to 
know what it was like. He said 
that he was doing everyone a 
favour and there was nothing 
to feel guilty about- I said 
tohim I didn't know what I 
was going to do or say and he 
asked me not to do anything 
stupid."

Miss Julie Mugford: the 

ship with her son and even 
offered at one stage to provide 
her with a flat so she could 
avoid staying with him. 

Miss Mugford aid they raw 
each other every weekend. 
Either he would stay with her 
or she would spend nights at 
his home. 

" Mrs Bamber told me she 
didn't understand how my 
mother could allow it to go 
on,” she said. 

"She said she thought our 
relationship was just a sexual 
one and she thought I was just 
a loose woman and a harlot. I 
was upset and offended and 
told her we were very good 
friends.” . . 

Miss Mugford said that on 
September 3- she had a row 
with Bamber after she had 
caught Him talking to aformer 
girltnend. over the. phone.. A 
furious argument developed 
in which Bamber appeared as 
if he was going to hit her., . . 

Miss Mugford then : said:

Miss Mugford said that at 
the funeral of Bamber’s par- 
ents Jeremy remarked that he 
hoped a video he had set up at 
home to cover the news would 
report what he said that day 
and show "his best side”. 

Under cross-examination 
Miss Mugford raid she had 
wanted to marry Bamber but 
their relationship deteriorated 
and she found difficulty in 
being physically close to him, 
and that it was she who left 
him. She said: "Both he and I 
knew something that no one 
else did: f couldn't cope, with 
it I couldn't speak normally

She had hoped that in seeing 
the bodies of Sheila and Mrs 
Bamber she might be able to 
make spiritual contact and 
take their advice about what 
she should do in the circum- 
stances but nothing happened 
Miss MugfonL who told the 
court that she came to regard 
Bamber as the devil incarnate, 
said that she did not want to 
believe what her 
subconsciousness was telling 
her about the truth of the 
murders. 

She said: "The police had 
lold me it was an open and 
shut . case of murder and 
suicide by Sheila. If the police 
were convinced I asked mvself 
why, anyone, should ..believe 
me. 'I didn't know what to do. 
I was scared, just scared, i was 
scared of what Jeremy -would

I couldn't handle it any more. 
I was increasingly upset" 

She added: "I loved him a

Drug baby 
mother’s 
challenge 
to Lords 

By Frances Gibb 
Legal Affairs 
Correspondent 

The House of Lords was 
urged yesterday to give a 
woman ’drug addict a chance 
to win ber baby daughter back 
from care, where she was 
placed after being bom ad- 
dicted to a heroin-like drug. 

Ai the sian of a test hearing 
Mr James Town end. QC. for 
the baby's coun -appointed 
guardian, asked the law lords 
to rule that magistrates at 
Reading. Berkshire, had been 
wrong in making an order last 
year putting the child into the 
care of Berkshire County 
CounciL Judgement was re- 
served andis expected within , 
four to six weeks. 

Mr Townened had told the 
Lords that the baby was bom 
prematurely, weighing only 
51b in March 1985. She was 
suffering from drug with- 
drawal symptoms because her 
mother, a heroin addict, had 
continued to take drugs during 
pregnancy. 

Because of her condition, 
the baby, named only as 
Victoria. uu5 placed in a 
special baby unit and later 
with foster parents, where she 
had since remained She had 
not at any state been in the 
care of either of her parents. 

"It may be that the correct 
disposal of this child is by 
adoption. But all her guardian 
seeks to urge is this: that 
before that is resorted to. 
every other reasonable course 
should be tried” 

The baby's mother, aged 30. 
is challenging the removal of 
her baby in a hearing with 
wide legal implications for 
women about their liability to 
legal proceedings over their 
unborn babies. 

Some lawyers believe that if 
the Lords uphold the ruling by 
the Coun of Appeal — that ill- 
treatment of a child in the 
womb can be taken into 
account in care proceedings — 
then the same principle can 
apply in criminal proceedings. 

Such proceedings might be 
brought not just in drug 
addiction cases but where 
babies are bom damaged 
through a pregnant woman's 
smoking or drinking. The 
common law rule has always 
been that women cannot be 
prosecuted for harm caused to 
a. child through negligence 
before or at the time of birth. 

.Opening lhe hearing Mr 
Townend told the Lords there' 
should be an opportunity for 
continued access to the child 
by her parents so that the 
possibility of rehabilitation 
could be explored 
Berkshire County Council 
and the baby's parents will 
also make legal submissions.

£15m grant to fight crime 


By Stewart Teadkr, Crime Reporter 


Passenger panic alarms and 
"help centres’ 1 are to be tested 
on the London Underground 
as part of new measures 
against crime. They will be 
funded by a £15 million grant 
announced yesterday at the 
Conservative Party 
conference. 

Passengers will be able to 
push a panfobntton or pick up 
a telephone toMk directly to 
the driver in a train or police 
at a station security point. - 
Other measures, such as 
new train and -station designs, 
will also be on test in crime 
prevention pilot schemes at 
stations thought to have 
particuM problems. 

The new station designs will 
include special focal points, 
where the manager and' staff 
wiH be dearly, visible to the 
public and ready to assist 
The use of dosed circuit 
television -will be increased at 
stations and better windows 


may be placed ax the end of 
carriages so there is a dear 
view down the length of a 
train. 

Nooks and crannies at sta- 
tions. will be dosed off and 
lighting will be improved. 

There will also bebener 
radio communication for the 
350 officers of the British 
Transport Police who patrol 
the Underground. At present 
there - are times when an 
inridenl occurs at a station 
and staff cannot reach the 
police, although they may be 
patrolling near by. 

The £15 million grant over 
three years- was announced 
yesterday by Mr John Moore, ' 
Secretary of Stale for Trans- 
port, when he told the con- 
ference that the money was 
part of a government initia- 
tive'led by the Prime Minister 
to improve crime prevention. 

Ydsterday both London Re- 
gional Transport and the 
London Regional Passengers 


Committee welcomed the 
money and agreed that modi 
of the problem was not so 
much actual attacks, but fear 
of crime by the public. 

A spokesman for the 
committee said: "We take the ■ 
view that crime is more a 
problem of perception. You 
are actually no less safe on the 
Underground than on the 
street, but people do fee! that 
once they are on a train or 
platform • there is no one 
looking out for them or who 
they can contact” 

According to LRT crime is 
rising "gently"at a time when 
the Underground is achieving 
record passenger levels. 

A spokesman said there was 
one violent crime per 500,000 
passengers. 

The spokesman said vi- 
olence was an important con- 
cern to the public but the most 
numerous crime was theft, 
such as pickpocketing.

Turning his attention to his 
critics ana the Labour Party, 
Mr Fowler said that time after 
time the Labour Party had 
cared in words but not in 
action. Under them waiting 
lists went up. hospital building 
was cut and there was strife in 
the wards. 

To cheers and applause, he 
said that the Tories were not 
prepared to take lectures 
about their concern for the 
health service from the La- 
bour Party. 

“This party is committed to ■ 
the health service. This party 
is committed to bringing help 
to people in need, whoever 
and wherever they are. We 
care and we care in action.” 

More resources were being 
put into the National Health 
Service, £1 1 billion more a 
year than when they came to 
office. 

More doctors and more 
nurses were working for pa- 
tients than at any stage in the 
history of the health service. 
They were providing more 
and better patient care — four 
and half million more patient 
cases were being treated today 
than when they came to office. 

Their critics dismissed all 
that as statistics. What they 
forgot was that each and every 
one of those four and half 
million statistics was a per- 
sonal story — a story of care, 
of a patient's pain relieved and 
hope renewed. 

It was absurd to claim that 
cleaning, catering and laundry 
services should be regarded as | 
a public sector monopoly. The 
private sector could and must 
play a part. The health service 
was now saving £63 million a 
year, which was going straight 
into patient care. 

The conference overwhelm- 
ingly carried a motion wel- 
coming the record provision 
of resources for the health 
service and urging the Gov- 
ernment to intensify its cam- 
paign of getting value for 
money. 

Dr David Tod, vice-chair- 
man of the Conservative 
Medical Society, during the 
course of the debate, said that

Stinging rebuke 
for a minister 

Mrs Edwina Currie, the 
junior health minister, re- 
ceived a stinging rebake dar- 
ing the debate on the health 
service for her recent remarks 
a boat the eating habits of 
people living in die North. 

Mrs Heather Scott, from 
Darlington, said die remarks 
bad been “thoughtless and 
patronizing”. 

Mis Carrie was sitting on 
the platform at the time with 
other DHSS ministers. 

Mrs Scott said: “I take issne 
with the junior minister who 
made remarks about tire diet 
of northerners. 

“I do not smoke; I do not 
drink been and l hate Mack 
podding. And there are a lot of 
people tike me in the North.” 

llie North did have prob- 
lems of unemployment and 
that obviously had some effect 
oa health and wellbeing. 

Mrs Carrie should have 
asked why that was. The 
reason was Labour dominance 
of the area. Where Labour was 
in control unemployment was 
twice as high as iu other areas.

IVTrtnr I LAW AND ORDER 


New cash 
for ‘city’ 
schools 


It was rubbish to suggest, as 
the Labour education es- 
tablishment bad done, that the 
city technology colleges 
scheme would harm the rest of 
the inner city schools, Mr 
Kenneth Baker, Secretary qf 
State for Education and Sd- 
' ence, said at a Bow Group 
meeting. 

I The money he had per- 
suaded Mr Nigel Lawson, 
Chancellor of the Exchequer, 
to provide for the project was 
extra money. 

“These knee-jerk reactions 
from the Labour activists 
dearly indicate that we must 
be right. We are responding to 
what the parents want Labour 
is the anti-opportunity party.” 

The new schools were not at 
the expense of the state- 
maintained schools in the 
towns. They would become 
beacons and serve to lever up i 
standards. When they became 
popular it would be seen that 
this was the sort of education 
children required 

• Mr Rhodes Boyson, Min- 
ister for Local Government, 
told the Selsdon Group of his 
support for education 
vouchers. 

■ Vouchers have been urged 
in the past to enable parents to 
choose the school to which 
they send their children. 

“In the long run there must 
be educational vouchers or 
direct funding of schools so 
that parents can ‘walk’ with

TRANSPORT 


|?Ludicrously high’ air 
I; fares must be cut 


the ludicrously high air 
^ares within Europe cut down 


So si/e, Mr John Moore, 
•Secretary of State for Trans- 
Tjfcpri. told the conference. 

**Wc want to break up the 
2n riels, abolish the monopo- 
lies. lift the restrictions and let 
i people fly”, he said when 
^replying to a motion calling on 
-»«hc Government to continue 
Pkc process of opening up the 
fiteansport industry to market 
Qtirccs. 

; TIv Government must do 
Jeicryihing possible to ensure 
?&hai British airlines were al- 
jSowcd to compete, he said. 

S ♦ Europe might offer the best 
gwuspecis for progress in the 
term. 

.“We already have agree- 
"jponis with Holland. Belgium. 
Sttutzcrland. Germany and 
"^Luxembourg, agreements that 
Wrican more competition. 
J^florc serv ices, new- routes. 
•4dux*r fares. 

."“Bui this is only a start. We 
£hovc a task, a mission even, to 


lead the way to more and 
faircT competition in the air- 
ways of the world.” 

The Channel tunneL which 
he described as the most 
dramatic engineering project 
of the century, would bring 
more economic activity, more 
jobs and more scope for 
individual travel. Best of all, it 
would be fended by private 
money with no drain on the 
taxpayer. 

It was an achievement no 
Labour government would 
even contemplate, because 
they were so ideologically 
opposed to private enterprise 
and the jobs it brought 

Private money also funded 
the Dartford road bridge, an- 
nounced last week, which 
would provide 5.QGQ man- 
years or employment 

Mr Charles Hendry. Mans- 
field. moving the motion, said 
there were now 700 more 
long-distance bus routes than 
in 1980 before deregulation 
and. in many cases, the fares 
were still lower. 



The conference cheered a 
series of announcements by 
Mr Douglas Hurd, Home 
Secretary, of farther measures 
in the fight against crime. Bat 
the applause for those mea- 
sures was more restrained 
than the cheers for a repre- 
sentative who called for the 
return of capital punishment 
for the murder of prison 
officers and polioe officers. 

Mr Hurd announced that 
the Criminal Justice Bill 
would enable live video links 
for children to give evidence in 
child abuse cases without the 
distress of giviim evidence in 
the presence of the alleged 
attacker; 

The BUI would also oblige 
, courts to make compensation 
i orders against offenders. 

He said that £9 million 
, would be used to st rengt hen 
victim support schemes; that 
the establishment of Thames 
Valley, Kent and Essex police 
forces was being increased; 
and that he was seeking a way 
to reassure die public on the 
adequacy of sentences while 
recoocfliag that with die in- 
dependence of judges. 

The Home Secretary added 
that a new serious find office 
would be set np to prosecute 
complex frauds and that there 
would be a power to confiscate 
the profits of all crime. 

He is also to use more 
widely bis power to deport 
people when be. bettered it to 
be fa the national interest 

Mr Hard said that there 
was vast scope for preventing 
crime, particularly the 96 per 
cent that was against property. 

Mr Nigel Waterloo, Ham- 
mersmith, chairman of die 
Bow Group, moved a resolu- 
tion commending the Home 
Secretary on his support of the 
police in their difficult task 
and condemning those fa other 
parties who sought to condone 
lawlessness ana to undermine 
traditional standards .of 
behaviour. 

He said the politics of envy 
as preached by the left was not 
far removed from condoning 
criminality. 


Dubbing anyone earning 
more than £25,000 a year as 
excessively wealthy was only 
one step removed from confis- 
catory taxation, which fa tarn 
was only one step from excus? 
tag the “free enterprise” tm- 
fiscatar who relieved them of 
their car or video. 

Mowing old people's lawns 
might be an appropriate sen- 
tence for some offenders, but 
others might regard ft as an 
encouragement to a life of 
crime. 

In very serious cases a life 
sentence most mean what ft 
said. The rights of victims to 
compensation should he ex- 
tended and that should be 
made a prominent feature of 
the forthcoming Criminal Jns- 
ticeBOL 


Mr David J. Evans, chair- 
man of Lnton Town Football 
Chib, said he was sick and 
tired of seefag the nation 
depicted on television as a 
lawless rabble filled with soc- 
cer hooligans. H y commended 
to the Football League the 
Lnton '•members only” 
scheme. 


At the Lnton FC ground, 
once like many other sports 
grounds a place where decent 
people were not prepared to 
take their families, there were 
no more fences, police, horses, 
dogs and segregation. There 
was no more violence, no more 
obscene chanting. 

“The members scheme has 
identified and removed the 
bully from football at Luton 
and ft can remove the bully 
from all our football grounds”, 
be said. “1 say to football, 
whether they like ft or not, that 
the next move forward for 
them is a members scheme.” 

Mr Barry Field, par- 
liamentary candidate for the 
Isle of Wight, was loudly 
applauded when be said he 
could not understand why 
those who had taken life were ! 
allowed to live. The sooner the 
re introduction of capital pm- 
ishment was part of the 
Conservative Party .manifesto 
the better. 


Not only could Britain af- 
ford the Trident missile sys- 
tem to replace the Polaris 
nuclear deterrent, but to aban- 
don it and redress the balance 
with Russia by conventional 
forces would cost many umes 
more, Mr George Ymtoger. 
Secretary of State for Defence, 
said when replying to a debate 
on defence: 

“Only Trident will ensure 
that our deterrent remains 
effective” he said. 

Attacking Labour’s policy 

on defence, he said: “fa a fine 
flood of rhetoric. Mr Kinnock 
abandons the whole basic 
strategy of the West”. 

If an enemy threatened to 
use nuclear weapons against 
British troops, what would Mr . 
Kinnock do, he asked. Would 
he tell them to fight on and be 
wiped out, or surrender? * 

“He hasn't said and he , 
doesn't know." 

He could report that the i 
Forces were in good heart and j 
doing a professional job. For 
seven consecutive years the 
spending targets for defence 
had been met 

After outlining the equip- 
ment being used by the 
Forces, be said that they 
would shortly be ordering 
from British industry an iter 
proved model of the highly 
successful Rapier air defence 
system. 

Although Trident was a big 
programme, over the yeans the 
Government was paying for 
Trident it would spend twice 
as much on training and four 
times as much on British 
Forces in Germany. 

Britain's Nato partners 
looked to Britain for stability, 
leadership and common 
sense. 

They would find it hard to 
believe their eyes and ears if a 
British government came 
along with a policy based on 
woolly emotion and the sort of 
demagogic claptrap heard at 
Blackpool last week. 

But the Conservative Party 
was the Government and was 
and would remain a reliable 
ally. 

They would not abandon 
their fit ends and that included 
their closest afl, the United 
States (applause). - 

Moving the motion, which 
was carried unanimously,- Mr 
George Richey, Shrewsbury 
mid Atcham,- Said -that lay- 
person who put. forward pro- 
posals which might weaken 
the political integrity of Nato. 
was being incredibly ir- 
responsible. 

Nuclear weapons were not 
weapons of war. They were 
weapons of deterrence. It was 
on that moral basis that we 
deployed them. 

The motion supported the 
Government's defence policy 
which must continue to be 
based upon a a nationally 
controlled nuclear deterrent 
and effective conventional 
forces while attempting to 
achieve a balance reduction in 





Norman Fowler received his 
customary standing ovation 
yesterday. Since the .departure 
of Michael Heseftme there fa 
no other minister, with, the 
obvious exception of > Mid 
Thatcher herself, who., has 
been more consistently adept 
fa recent years at bringing the 
representatives to their feet; 

But this was no- -routine 

conference occasion. Tbe cfaiL 

tenge facing Mr Fowler-, fa 
critical to tbe govennaanfs 
future. If the Couservatne* 
are to win the next election 
they will have to erase the 
widespread suspidou that they 
are undermining and ufaecfc 
fag the health service. 

The extent of the' task fay, 
indicated somewhat pa ri id m tf 
cally by Mr Fowler right at the 
beginning of his speech when 
he referred prowfly m fee 
government's record. 

“More resources are- beiqg 
devoted, to health,” bo 'pro- 
claimed, “than at any stagefa 
the history of the herifli 
service.” Yet this guverimeitt 
is suffering more political 
embarrassment from Its && 
ore to do more than any other 
administration, fa the hfatory . 
of the service. 

Fart of the explanation fa 
that there can never be eatwk 
money to spend all that ooud 
be put to good use on health, 
and the gap inevitably be- 
comes wider as medical tech* 
oology develops. 


Familiarity breeds 
reassurance 


Another explanation is that 
more attention always tends to 
be attracted by the closure of 
old hospitals than - by the 
opening of new ones: famiffiair 
ity breeds reassmance. ; 

Then there is die belief, Si 
iu). means always 
that the greater resourcesof 
die service are not well mnftr 
aged. Time. and. again fafa

.politicians; „fa by-elections; 
v*oa a?ay be spending more 
ote 'the health service fa- 
together, . but ‘ you are ; net 
spending- ft car caring for 
patterns here.” 

- So there are tasks of persna- 
smv and of performance. Like 
Kenneth Baker on education 
the day before, Mr Fowler’s 
approach yesterday was essen- 
tially pragmatic, la both cues 
that seemed wise. 

Mr Fowler did not look to an 
extension of private medirfae

It was bring seriously pro-

that that would not have a 
devastating effect on Western 
Europe was extraordinary.

ENERGY ~ 


The Lucas dispute halting 
Rover Group car production 
was “very distressing”. Mr 
Paul Channoo, Secretary of 
State for Trade and Industry, 
said yesterday. Mr Channon. 
speaking after trying out a new 
Jaguar at the Conservative i 
Party conference in Bourne- | 
mouth, said: “I don’t want to 
get involved in the details of a 
dispute with another company 
but obviously it’s very dis- 
tressing”. He rejected the 
suggestion that the lay-offs 
boded ill for the long-term 
future of the company.

Walker taunts Labour oyer its nuclear policy 


Mr Peter Walker. Secretary 
of State for Fnerg>, taunted 
the Labour Party over its 
decision at its conference last 
week to phase out nuclear 
energy in Britain. 

“IVhaf about the morality of 
ir all?" he asked the con- 
ference. “You say: ‘Nuclear is 
not safe so you will have to put 
up with it for another 20 
> ears'. 

**tf it is not sfae they should 
have said they would stop ft 
straight away. If it were not 
safe we would stop it straight 
away” he said amkl cheers. 

Only a party infiltrated by 
tbe loony left could adopt such 
a policy on nuclear energy. 
The Labour Pasty planned to 
get rid of nuclear energy at the 
very time that North Sea ofl 
would be running oat. 

Energy prices would soar 
under Labour. Prices would be 
disastrous for the gas industry. 


the cement and chemical in- 
dustries, for the . paper in- 
dustry. Probably at least 

another 100,000 would be 

unemployed. 

Of course, after the Cher- 
nobyl disaster, Britain needed 
desperately to hare inter- 
national standards of regula- 
tion, of safety and inspection. 
But no such design of reactor 
would have been allowed fa 
Britain. 

How could Mr Arthur 
Scargill say that the nation 
must abolish nuclear energy in 
tbe interests of health and 
safety, yet go to Moscow again 
after tbe Russians had an- 
nounced that they intended 
doubling their unclear power 
propamine? 

Did Mr Scargill condemn 
bis Soviet friends for jeop- 
ardizing the safety and health 
of the Soriet people? 

Labour had got unity at its 


conference at a price: for the 
first time Labour would go into 
the next election on a policy of 
nuclear disarmament, a policy 


the British Telecom flotation. 

The conference passed by an 
overwhelming majority a mo- 
tion commending to the Gov- 


that would bring pleasure only eminent a halaiw^i energy 
to Moscow; another price was policy utilizing all available 


the sop to Mr Scargill and the 
Labour left on energy policy. 

Mr Walker told repre- 
sentatives, to a standing ova- 
tion: u When it anas to the 
next election .we will thrash 
the socialists as never before”. 

Earlier, he said that fa the 
few weeks since the public 
were informed bow they could 
get details of the issne of 
British Gas shares, applica- 
tions had been coming iu at the 
rate of 4,000 an hour, 24 hours 
a day. Hie rate had improved 
since the Labour conference. 

By the time the Conser- 
vative conference was over 
there would have been twice as 
many applications as were 
received fa tbe entire period of 


feel sources and means of 
reducing energy waste. The 
motion emphasized that safety 
was paramount 

Mr Eric Pickles, of Keigh- 
ley. moving the motion, said 
they must not condemn their 
children to a lower standard of 
living than existed today. He 
did not want children's lives to 
be held to ransom by the 
National Union of Mine- 
workers. 

Mrs Joaa North, of Wo- 
kingham, spoke against die 
motion. She said: “1 do not 
think tbe sheep fa Cumbria 
care where the radioactivity 
came from. 

“This is not a national 
problem bur a global problem. 


However safe we may be, tbe 
nuclear safety chain is only as 
safe as its weakest link.” 

Talk of safety was like that 
aboeta man (ailing from a tail 
building and saying as be 
passed each floor “Safe so 
far. 

• Labour's energy spokes- 
man. Mr Stan Orme, said that 
Mr Walker's speech raised 
the question of whether tbe 
Government had an energy 
policy at all (our Political 
Reporter writes). 

The speech contained “no 
proposals, no content — sim- 
ply political abuse”, he said. 

“Peter Walker has often 
rebuked Norman Tebbit for ; 
attacking his opponents rather 
than talking about policy. I 
Today Peter Walker de- ! 
scehded to tbe depths of 
standard Tebbit abuse. Out- 
side the Tory Party conference 
no one will be impressed.” 


■ More Urban Development 
Corporations will be created 
within two years, Mr Nicholas 
Ridley, Secretary of State for 
the Environment, announced 
to the conference. 

He also told representatives 
that local authorities would be 
made to put more services out 
to competitive tender and that 
rates reform would be the top 
priority in the next Pari- 

ia rcienL 

Mr Ridley, in a debate on 
local government, said the 
first four UDCs would be in 
TrafFord in Greater Manches- 
ter on Teesside; in the Black 
Country; and in Tyne and 
Wear. 

The setting up of more 
UDCs would be considered as 
resources allowed. 

“They will all have powers 
to redevelop and rebuild -both 
the fabric and the prosperity 
of these areas", he said. De- 
cades ‘of socialist rule, com- 
bined with the changing 
patterns of industry, had left 
some of the older industrial 
cities in dereliction and decay. 

Putting services out to com- 
petition boosted the private 
sector, enterprise and jobs. It 
broke the monopoly of the 
public sector. Services were 
run for the benefit of the 
consumer rather than the 
producer. 

Mr Ridley promised legisla- 
tion “very soon” to make local 
authorities put about eight 
mote services out to compet- 
itive tender. The list would 
include refuse collection, 
street cleaning, building clean- 
ing, catering, ground and ve- 
hicle maintenance. 


ratepayers*, money pumping 
out vile propaganda and they 
employed each other in highly 
paid non^obs. 

Militants and their sort 
knew that their power de- 
pended on perpetuating the 
cycle of deprivation, un- 
employment and dependence. 

The Government would 
take earty action to ensure that 
legislation banning propa- 
ganda on the rates was fully 
effective. 


The Government could go 
on legislating until it had a 
framework of law within 
which abuses could be con- 
tained, with more central con- 
trol, or it could make local 
authorities fully accountable 
to their electors.

sen local democratic ac- 
countability. So its main 
proposal was to replace 
domestic rates with the 
community charge. Everyone 
over 18 would pay it

PARLIAMENT OCTOBER 8 1986 



on 



HOUSE OF LORDS 

The House of Lords hut night 
threw out by 176 votes to 52, a 
Government majority of 124, 
the contention by Leri Du- 
olng, former Master of the Rolls, 
that the European Communities 
(Amendment) Bill would se- 
verely c^maD the sovereign pow- 
ers of Parliament and of the 
Queen. 

Conservative,- Liberal, SDP 
and even some Labour peers ah 
came down heavily against him 
in debate and in the lobbies, die 
principle argument being that 
mutilation of the Bill which 
gives legislative effect to the 
Single European Act, would be 
viewed with utter dismay by 
other member states. 

Lady Young, MbusterdfState 
for Foreign and Cornmonweahh 
Affaire, in calling for the rejec- 
tion of the series of amendments 
that - Lord Denning had ad- 
vocated, said it made sense to 
relieve the maun -European 
Court of some of its. wortload, 
jhe new courts of first- instance 
being proposed .would take on 
that burden but would not take 
on new work, nor would they 
have new powcts.

Lord Campbell of AUmny (C)

Travel for disabled 


Airlines miss a vast market 


By Harvey Elliott, Air Correspondent 


Airlines are to be ui^ed to 
tap into a vast market of 
potential passengers which, h 
is claimed, they are now 
largely ignoring — disabled ' 
people. 

A conference organized by 
the Royal Association for 
Disability and Rehabilitation 
later this month will draw up 
proposals aimed at making 
flying easier for people in 
wheelchairs, the blind and the 
elderly. 

Mr George Wilson, directin’ 
of the association, said yes- 
terday: “There . are literally 
millions of disabled people 
worldwide who would like to 
travel by air and are well able 
to afford it, but they are being 


prevented from doing so.” 

All airlines will be urged to 
follow the lead of British 
Airways in installing wheel- 
chairs on aircraft which can be 
used to take disabled people to 
lavatories on long flights. 

“Things are much better 
now than they were.” Liz 
Fan shaw, Director of the Dis- 
abled Living Foundation, 
said, “but there is still a long 
way to go. The main problem 
is that aircraft and airports are 
designed with narrow aisles 
and very small toilets, steps 
and other impediments.” 

• Air fores between London 
and Dublin have been frozen 
by the Irish government and 
an independent Irish airline 


has been permitted to use jets 
on its Dublin to Luton route. 
Mr Jim Mitchell. Irish 
communications minister, re- 
jected an application by Aer 
Lingus. British Airways and 
Dan Air to increase their Apex 
fares on the Dublin to London 
route. 

At the same time he gave 
permission to the independent 
airline, Ryanair, to use jets on 
the Dublin to Luton route, 
introduced four months ago 
with an unrestricted return 
fare of £90. The unrestricted 
return fare offered by the main 
airlines is £1 90. 

Ryanair is also hoping to 
start services between Cork 
and Luton and Shannon and 
Luton. 


Anglers 
are put 
on UN 
blacklist 

By John Goodbody 

British international sea an- 
glers have been caught fishing 
in South Africa ana are to be 
included on the United Na- 
tions sporting blacklist 

The South African Non- 
Racial Olympic Committee 
yesterday confirmed that [9 
men are on the list to be 
published in a fortnight The 
move will effectively bar them 
from competing in about 50 
countries. 

The National Anglers 
Council (NAC) and the Na- 
tional Federation of Sea An- 
glers said they would be 
inquiring into the Britons' 
participation in competitions 
in March last year. 

Mr Peter Tombleson. NAC 
executive director, said yes- 
terday; “We did not know 
anything about this event but I 
know we did not apply for any 
grant aid for the competitors 
to go to South Africa-” 

Mick Toomer, from Basil- 
don. Essex, who won the 
individual title for a series of 
three events, each held over 
three days, said the 18 
Englishmen and one man 
from Northern Ireland had 
gone as individuals. He 
agreed, however, that they had 1 
appeared as England teams. 

Mr Toomer said they paid 
for flights but the 'South 
Africans met some expenses 
during the three-week stay. 


Hopes for 
new era as 
dissidents 
are freed 

By Tnidi McIntosh 

Lord Avebury, chairman of 
the British Parliamentary Hu- 
man Rights Group, said yes- 
terday that he hoped the 
release of the two Soviet 
dissident human rights ac- 
tivists. Dr Yuri Orlov and. Dr 
Vladimir Brodsky, would hep- 
aid a new era of free discussion 
between the Soviet Union and 
the West on peace and 
disarmament. 

In a letter to Dr Brodsky, 
ed 42. who is now in Ismd 
after being released from a 
Soviet labour - camp last ' 
month. Lord Avebury, wrote: 
“Unfommaiely. campaigning 
for peace in the USSR is still a 
criminal offence, unless those 
concerned are prepared to 
adhere to the Soviet line.” 

Dr Brodsky, a Jewish phy- 
sician, was sentenced last year 
to three years in prison for his 
involvement in the Soviet 
peace movement. 

In 1982 he founded the 
“Group to Establish Trust 
between the Soviet Union and 
the United Slates'* in Moscow 
with two others, but a year 
later he was dismissed from 
his job and later imprisoned 
on charges of hooliganism. 

Dr Orlov, aged 62, who was 
serving a five-year term of 
interna] banishment in Si- 
beria, arrived with his wife, 
Irina, in the United Slates last 
Sunday.

Asians and blacks not 
treated fairly in legal 
profession, says author 


By Peter Evans, Home Affairs Correspondent 

Asian and black members of ftill-time judiciary. Very few 
me legal profession are being tribunal chairmen are blade or 
prevented from advancing Asian, but the Lord 


from 


their careers because oi 
>d*n practices, it is claimed 
m the Christian Action Jour- 
nal. 

Mrs Elizabeth Burney, au- 
thor of a book on the mag- 
istracy, says in the Journal 
that there are 800 QCs but 
none is of black or Asian 
origin. 

'She Says it is “scandalous” 
that ethnic minorities are 
suffering from the same sort of 
prejudices that women faced 
until recently. 

There are still only 19 
women QCs and she believes 
discrimination is going to take 
a long time to be wonted out 
of the system. 

.Among circuit judges only 
one. Judge Singh, is of ethnic 
origin. 

There are 14 women circuit 
judges and five tribunal chair- 
men — the lowest rank of the 


Chancellor’s Office says more 
are being actively sought. 

Mrs Burney, who is writing 
in an issue of the Journal 
edited by the Prison Reform 
Trust, says: “Given the exis- 
tence of at least 300 black and 
Asian practising barristers, 
many of long years experience, 
their lack of advancement is 
nothing short of scandalous, 
as the Bar itself now 
recognizes. 

“Racist practices within the 
legal profession have so lim- 
ited their opportunities to gain 
experience that very few have 
reached a position in their 
careers where they can be 
considered for judicial posts. 

“Just as women barristers 
found until very recently, 
black and Asian barristers are 
only offered work that is seen 
as “suitable’ for them. This 
means criminal work for black 


defendants, usually 
black solicitors.” 

The Bar Council set up its 
own inquiry which acknowi 
edged the existence of 
discrimination against black 
barristers and subsequently 
monitoring machinery has 
operated. 

The Bar Council and the 
Law Society hope to fund a 
long-term research project on 
blade access to and progress 
within the legal profession. 

“It wiD be many years 
before all this bears fruit in a 
fair proportion of black and 
Asian judges,” Mrs Burney 
says. 

She cites research on black 
magistrates written by Mi- 
chael King and Colin May and 
published by the Cobden 
Trust. It says: “The chances of 
a black defendant appearing 
before a black magistrate in 
areas where there is a sizeable 
black community range be- 
tween 3 and 21 per cent.” 


Employers fight prejudice 


Race, sex and age 
discrimination by employers 
are causes of social unrest and 
disillusionment, the Institute 
of Personnel Management 
claims. 

Yesterday it unveiled an 
equal opportunities code of 
practice, which suggests ways 
of preventing all types of 
discrimination, that are still 
rife in society. 

The institute hopes its 
28,000 members will use the 
pamphlet as a guideline for 
fairer recruitment of staff. 

, A spokesman said: “These 
policies should ensure that the 
most effective use is made of 
all human resources and help 
prevent the unpleasant results 
of discrimination at work. 

“Discrimination has cre- 


By Angella Johnson 

a led a lot of tension in our 
inner dry areas.” 

The pamphlet indudes ad- 
vice on recruitment processes, 
promotion and bow to deal 
with complaints of 
victimization. 

Employers are encouraged 
to set targets for recruitment, 
which should include employe 
ing people from different ra- 
cial and age groups. 

The institute says people in 
their forties and fifties have 
become the lastest victims of 
discrimination, because of a 
myth that they cannot easily 
learn new skills. 

To combat this the code 
states: “Those responsible for 
in-house training and retrain- 
ing, programmes should rec- 
ognize that older workers can 


still acquire and retain new 
knowledge and skills.” 

During the next 12 months 
the institute will monitor im- 
plementation of the code and 
intends compiling a further 
code of guidelines next year. 

The code has been wel- 
comed by Mr Peter Newsam, 
chairman of the Commission 
for Racial Equality. He de- 
scribed it as a positive attempt 
to encourage die employment 
of people from ethnic min or- 
itygroups. 

“Personnel managers have 
a key role in starting off equal 
opportunity programmes and 
m making sure that new 
initiatives are taken to deal 
with any inequality which 
may be _ identified in their 
organization," he said. 


Insurance 
firm seeks 
advisory 
role 

By Frances Gibb 
Legal Affairs . 
Correspondent 

Legal insurance companies 
are attempting; to provide legal 
advice to die panic alongside 
citizens’ advice bureaux and , 
law centres if die Government 
goes ahead with proposals to 
take that job away from 
solicitors. 

In its response to the Lord 
Chancellor’s Department, 

which is condderim the pro- 
posals, the Legal Protection 
Group, one of me ™j n i* g»l 
insurance companies, says it is 
in a “unique position to give 
the type of advice normally 
given by CAJBs and law 
centres”. 

For a number of years, 
says, it has been providing 
ral telephone advice. 

A team of government of- 
ficials has recommended in a 
legal aid scrutiny report that 
free legal advice on a wide 
range of civil matters could be 
provided by advice centres. 
Solicitors would still do the 
court work. 

But the team has not looked 
at the possibility of a commer- 
cial organization such as the 
Legal Protection Group 
competing lor work. 

The service offered by the 
group could form part of the 
overall system to be co- 
ordinated by the imposed new 
Legal Services Board, it says. 

Clients who have legal ex- 
penses insnraiice with the 
group have access to legafly- 
qnalified consultants who 
work on a rota basis 24 hours a 
day, it says. Calls tend to be 
from people involved hi road 
accidents; relatives of people 
arrested and people wanting 
advice with domestic disputes 
or finandaJ difficulties. 

The scrutiny team recom- 
mends that legal aid farads bo 
longer be available for advice 
on wills, probate, conveyanc- 
ing or anything else which can 
be described as “arranging 
one’s own affairs”.

Radio advice for 
student teachers 

. By Mark Dowd, Edncation Reporter 

Forty teaefao- trainees at radio-assisted practice sets 
Leeds University School of costing about £600 each. 


Education' are about to be- 
come radio-controlied in an 
1 8-monih experiment that 
may revolutionize t rainin g 
techniques. 

Radio-assisted practice 
(Rap), a £42,000 project 
funded by the Economic and 
Social Research Council, per- 
mits a discreet contact be- 
tween educational supervisor 
and student during school 
lessons. 

Teaching students will wear 
a miniaturized earpiece re- 
ceiver which will pick up 
advice and guidance from the 
intruder at the back of the 
classroom. The instructor’s 
tiny transmitter can be 
strapped to a finger. 


Dr Peter Tomlinson, who is 
directing the project, con- 
ceded that “rapping” had to be 
skilful to be effective. 

Most trainees, he said, knew 
about good teaching methods 
but often forgot to implement 
them in the heat of the 
classroom. The role of the 
project supervisor would be to 
consolidate theory by offering- 
reminders with well-timed 
interjections. 

For example, one of the 
common pitfalls among train- 
ees was the tendency to throw 
out unspecific questions. 

The question which begins: 
“Who can tell me often 
provoked no reaction from 
children. Dr Tomlinson said. 


o— - WU, 4^1 IVIUIAIUUU .VMl yl- 

The School of Education at- Pupils were also apt to stare at 
Leeds has between 10 and IS 1116 ceiling if the teacher 

~ continues to say, “Do you 

agree?” 

Should trainees persist in 
those errors the supervisor 
* might simply say “check 
name” to remind them to 
direct their questions to 
individuals. 

The system is also intended 
to compliment trainees when 
they perform positively. Dr 
Tomlinson recalled an in- 
stance of a teacher receiving 
the message, “good ignore” 
after she refused to 'counte- 
nance disruption. 


PC loses 
job over 
shooting 

By Craig Setoo 

A police marksman who 
accidentally shot a woman 
constable in the leg with a wax 
training pellet has been forced 
to resign. 

PC Graham Rees, aged 28, 
was “required to resign” from 
the West Midlands police after 
a bearing before Mr Geoffrey 
Dear, the Chief Constable, 
this week. 

PC Rees, a member of the 
West Midlands tactical fire- 
arms squad, was on aimed 
security duties at Binnnraham 
International Airport when a 
wax training pellet fired from 
a J8 revolver hit WPC El- 
eanor Bird in the leg. 

WPC Bird was forced to 
take three days side leave after 
ibe incident, which was the 
result of a prank. 

PC Rees, married with two 
children, was suspended from 
duty, but the Director of 
Public Prosecutions decided 
that no criminal proceedings 
should be taken against him. 

The incident, in the locker 
room at the airport, happened 
nine months after another 
West Midlands police marks- 
man, PC Brian Chester, ac- 
ci dentally shot dead John 
Sharthouse, aged five, during 
a raid on a Birmingham 
house: 

PC Chester was acquitted of 
manslaughter.

Go-ahead 
for missile 
warning 
system 

By Xan Smith .- 
Planning permission for a 
new missile early, wanting 
system to replace the ausiihg 
radar domes at Fylingdhleson 
the North Yorkshire moots 
was reluctantly granted by 
National Park guardians 
yesterday. 

The controversial project is 
to be discussed ai the coming 
US-Soviet summit m lcdafkl"' 
Within five years The three 
Fylingdales domes wfl] be 
replaced by a 120ft' high 
truncated pyramid with a 
single radar satellite commu- 
nications disc on top, capable 
of tracing objects w a -360 
degree spread over a distance 
of 6,000 miles. 

The present radar system 
covers only .190 degrees. The 
new equipment, finked to 
similar complexes in Alaska 
and Greenland, wifi be able to 
plot missiles fired from any 
part of the world. . 

The development has been 
strongly criticized by a Wash- 
ington lawyer, Mr John 
Rhinelander, who was legal- 
adviser to the United States 
team which negotiated the 
1972 atiti-ballistic missile 
treaty between the United- 
Stales and the Soviet Union. 

Mr Rhinelander insists the 
new “phased - array” radars 
will lead Fylingdales towards 
Star Wars technology and win 
violate the treaty. 

In a letter presented to the 
North Yorkshire Moors Na- 
tional Park Development 
Committee yesterday, the 
Ministry of Defence said that 
the Fylingdales project was 
merely a modernization of 
existing resources and con- 
formed fully with US treaty 
obligations. 

By 19 votes to 4. members 
of the committee rejected 
demands' for a public' inquiry" 
into the £125 million project 
on the edge of their moors 
which wifi be controlled by the 
ministry, funded by the 
United States and run by foe 
Royal Air Force. 

Among those calling for a 
public inquiry were the Coun- 
cil .for. National Parks, the 
Council for the Protection of 
Rural England, Leeds City 
Council, the Ramblers’ 
Association and the Open 
Spaces Society. 

Few public objections have 
been raised, possibly because 
the notice dedaring the 
ministry's plans was posted on 
a board 25 yards inside the 
Fylingdales site, where a large 
red sign warns trespassers off.

It said this had cost billions

“Our committee found a

Tike personnel security and

The report also strongly 
criticized leaks of information 
by the Administration, saying 
these were “so commonplace 
as to imperil many sensitive

The report will strengthen 
calls for the US to take a

Tamil geurrillas dig in 
despite village set-back 


Trincomalee (Renter) — 
Tamil separatist guerrillas are 
still entrenched in Sri Lanka's 
eastern district despite a 
three-day battle in which Gov- 
ernment troops recaptured a 
rebel stronghold. 

The Trincomalee security 
forces commander, lieutenant 
Colonel Lakshman 

■‘Vijayaratne, said guerrillas 
controlled five villages around 
the city after last week's battle 
in the village of Sambaltim. 

“The situation has not gone 
out of hand bnt terrorism is 


stiD prevalent in this district," 
he said. 

The village was deserted 
yesterday. The 3,500 inhab- 
itants had fled and soldiers 
armed with automatic weap- 
ons guarded the streets. 

“We cleared this place of 
terrorists bnt there may still be 
a few lurking in the bushes to 
set off landmines," Col 
Wijayaratne said. 

He said 450 troops took part 
in the operation, code-named 
“Sea Horse", bandied at 
dawn last Thursday.

“The Government’s objec-

problem of those women pres-

operation performed in Spain 
under dangerous health 
conditions." Serior Julian

Prisoner of the Sandinistas 



Mr Eugene Hasenfns is led by Nicaraguan soldiers through jungle after his capture following the shooting down of his plane

J by Reagan 


An American who survived 
the shooting down of bis plane 
as it was making a supply drop 
to .US-backed rebels in Nica- 
ragua was carrying an identi- 
fication card describing him as 
a military adviser in El Sal- 
vador, according lo Nica- 
raguan Army officials. 

One of two Americans who 
died in the US-made CI23 
transport plane when h was hit 
by rocket fire on Sunday was 
hearing similar identification, 

the officials said. The other 
man’s identification card de- 
scribed him as an employee of 
an aviation company linked, 
according to the officials, to 
the Central Intelligence 


Another man who died has 
been identified only as being 
Latin in appearance. 

The survivor told a press 
conference in Managua on 
Tuesday that he was Mr 
Eugene Hasenfns from Mari- 
nette, Wisconsin. He made 
only a brief appearance before

being led away with his hands 
tied behind his back. 

Mr Hasenfns told reporters 
who spoke to him briefly at the 
scene of his capture, about 20 
miles from the Costa Rican 
border, that he was “an avi- 
ation expert" working in El 
Salvador where be had joined 
the aircraft on its doomed 
flight He said the flight had 
originated in Miami and iu»H 
made a stop in Honduras 
before entering Nicaraguan air 
space. 

Lieutenant-Colonel Roberto 
Calderon, chief of the southern 
military region, said the cap- 
tured American had been the 
crew's “kicker", the man who 
pushes parachuted supplies 
out of the plane. He had 
parachuted to safety himself 
when the aircraft was hit and 
had been captured the follow- 
ing day. 

Reporters at the press con- 
ference were shows identity 
cards and other documents 
taken from the prisoner and 


the three dead men. They 
identified the pilot as Captain 
Wallace Blaine Sawyer J unior 
and the co-pilot as Mr Wil- 
liam J. Cooper. Mr Hasenfns 
had identified both men as 
Americans, Colonel Calderon 
said. 

The identification cards 
belonging to Mr Hasenfns and 
Captain Sawyer had been 
issued by (he Salvadorean 
armed forces and signed by 
General Bus til lo. Commander 
of the Air Force. 

“Their IDs ideotify these 
men as members of the US 
military advisory group in El 
Salvador," Colonel Calderon 
said. The US has about 50 
advisers assisting the 
Salvadorean Army in its war 
against left-wing guerrillas. 

Colonel Calderon produced 
a card identifying Mr Cooper 
as an employee of Southern 
Air Transport which, be said, 
had been connected with the 
CIA in recent North American 
newspaper reports. 


Chirac ‘no’ 
to terror 
blackmail 

From Diana Geddes 
Paris 

As France was facing up toji 
seemingly endless spiral of 
new terrorist threats and 
escalating demands yesterday, 
M Jacques Chirac the Prime 
Minister, reiterated his gov- 
ernment’s determination not 
to give in to blackmail and not 
to enter any form of negotiat- 
ions with the terrorists. 

"France is a democratic 
country which is ready to talk 
to anyone, except under 
constraint." he said. “Any 
negotiation or compromise 
with terrorists is not possible 
as ii would simply encourage 
them to lake further action m 
pursuit of their demands.” 

M Chirac said all the 
information obtained by the 
police so far indicated that the 
Abdullah family and the Lebar 
nese Revolutionary Armed 
Faction (Farl) were respon- 
sible for the recent bomb 
attacks in Paris, which had left 
10 dead and more than 200 
injured.

From Richard Owen, Strasbourg 


“You would think that if the 
EEC could agree on anything 
it would be how to make toys 
safe for our children," one 
official said wearily this week. 

Mr Jeremiah Sheehan, the 
Irish head, of the EEC 
Commission's department for 
consumer affairs, agrees that it 
has taken “two darned long" 
to produce a brief directive 
ensuring that teddy-bears do 
not catch fire and toy trucks 
do not slice off small fingers. 

A directive on toy safety is 
now going though the final 
stages of written procedure at 
theCommission. It is the third 
version of a law first proposed 
14 years ago. 

Consensus among the Twel- 
ve on safe toys appears to have 
been achieved, but at a price: 
the directive is couched in far 
vaguer terms than its prede- 
cessors and leaves potential 
loopholes for toy manufac- 
turers who opposed more 
■detailed earlier versions on 
the grounds that they would 
impede and suffocate their 
industry. 

The new directive is the first 
example in the consumer field 
of a little noticed Commission 
decision of May last year 
known as the “new approach" 
lo technical and safety stan- 
dards — one of the key 


elements in the completion of 
the internal market 

As this week's Internal Mar- 
ket Counsel in Luxembourg, 
chaired by Mr Alan Clark, the 
Minister for Trade, clearly 
demonstrated, the timetable 
for internal market liberaliza- 
tion and harmonization has 
slipped badly. Despite efforts 
to speed things up by Britain, 
which currently holds the 
presidency of the EEC, the. 
target date of 1992 is begin- 
ning to look elusive. 

Under the “new approach” 
— until now only applied to 
industrial products such as 
pressure vessels — the Comm- 
ission avoids imposing de- 
tailed requirements on manu- 
facturers and lays down broad 
principles to which national 
safety standards boards are 
supposed to conform. 

In the case of toys, the new 
directive provides general cri- 
teria for ensuring that toys are 
not inflammable or dan- 
gerous, but as far as what Mr 
Sheehan calls “the nitty 
gritty" is concerned, manufac- 
turers are required to conform 
with overall standards laid 
down by the Committee for 
Standardization. 

Critics of this system say 
that it does not screen oiit 
dangerous imports into the 


EEC and puts the onus on the 
Commission rather than on 
manufacturers. 

Mr Sheehan denies that it 
gives loymakers carte blanche, 
but admits that some EEC 
countries have lower safety 
standards than others and that 
even the European Committ- 
ee's standards do not include 
toxic materials such as those 
in modelling clay, or chemi- 
cals and chemistry sets. 

EEC officials add that even 
when the new directive is 
published, it win still have to 
pass through the European 
Parliament at Strasbourg. 

Although the EEC reforms, 
due to come into force in 
January if Britain and other 
states ratify them, are de- 
signed to speed up derision-

“God forbid that the toy

from the lunatic fringe at 
Strasbourg that it should also 
cover morally harmful toys

Labour MEPs call for 
Europe withdrawal 

From Our Own Correspondent, Strasbnrg 


The British Labour Party 
group in the European Par- 
liament yesterday sought to 
move Mr Neil Kinnock and 
the Labour Party leadership in 
the direction of a policy of 
eventual withdrawal from the 
Common Market 

The group called for a 
restoration of British sov- 
ereignty which it said was 
being ceded to EEC institu- 
tions such as the Commission 
in Brussels. 

On the day that ratification 
of EEC reforms aroused 
accusations of loss of sov- 


ereignty in the House of 
Lords, the Labour group in 
Strasbuig called on the Labour 
leadership to adopt as official 
policy a repeal of those aspects 
of the British Treaty of Acces- 
sion to the EEC which it 
claimed conflict with the pol- 
icy of a future Labour 
government 

A discussion paper put for- 
ward by Mr Alf Lomas. La- 
bour MEP for London North 
East and leader of the Labour 
group, was approved yes- 
terday by a majority of Labour 
MEPs. 


From Michael Binyon 
Washington 

President Reagan yesterday 
compared the unofficial US 
group supporting the Contra 
rebels in Nicaragua to Ameri- 
cans who fought in the Span- 
ish Civil War and he insisted 
that there was no US Govern- 
ment connection with the 
American crew of the cargo 
plane shot down on Sunday. 

He said: “We’re in a free 
country where private citizens 
have many freedoms, includ- 
ing the fact that some years 
ago many of you spoke ap- 
provingly' of something called 
the Abraham Lincoln Brigade 
in the Spanish Civil War.” 

Despite Administration at- 
tempts to disavow any role m 
the private group of Contra 
supporters, the incident has 
fuelled criticism of the grow- 
ing unofficial involvement in 
the fighting in Nicaragua. 

The Reagan Administration 
said the surviving crew mem- 
ber. Mr Eugene Hascnfus. was 
working for a group headed by 
a retired US Army Major- 
General, John Singlaub. who 
runs an anti-communist 
organization based in 
Phoenix. 

General Singlaub said he 
knew nothing about the in- 
cident which had nothing to 
do with his organization. A 
company set up by General 
Singlaub in £1 Salvador has 
been used for Central Intelli- 
gence Agency operations in 
the past 

The Pentagon said Mr Has- 
enfiis, aged 45. had served in 
the marines from I960 to 
1965, reaching the rank of 
corporal. His wife refused to 
say if she had been officially 
informed of his capture. His 
brother said that he worked 
for an air freight company in 
Florida and once ran a para- 
chuting schooL

British shops still sell 
dangerous playthings 


By David Cross 


Despite stringent restric- 
tions on (he sale of aosafe toys, 
British shops and market 
stalls were.stiU selling poten- 
tially lethal items, trading 
standards officers around the 
country said yesterday. 

The chief trading standards, 
officer for Gloucestershire 
County Council. Mr Michael 
Givens, said one of the most 
“horrendous" cases he had 
come across in 40 years of 
experience, was an oven, (he 
Saper Homo Magico Lili 
model, which was bought for 
£10 by a customer from a 
Cheltenham market last 
month. 

Manufactured in Mexico 
ami with all the instructions in 
Spanish, there were sharp 
edges on a sheet metal ulterior, 
which could rip tiny fingers to 
shreds, and the surface heated 
up to a temperature of 140F in 
15 minutes because the oven, 
designed for use on lHHyrtt 
jpctMit of the standard British 
240-volt system, had to be 
plumed directly into the mains 
to heat two 100-watt bulbs. 

There was also high rfek of 
a child getting an electric 
shock from the Continental- 




style screw-in bulb 
fitted in foe oven. 

“If the wires were c on n ect ed 
the wrong way round and a 
child touched foe metal fitting 
of the bulb he would receive a 
terrible shock. Any supplier of 
a toy which needs water and 
electricity to make it work is 
providing a lethal mixture," 
Mr Givens added. 

Another extremely dan- 
gerous toy, sales of which have 
recently been stopped, was foe 
Momneret Foussette folding 
pusbebair imported from 
France. Although this was 
meant for use with dolls, 
several children had been 
discovered asmg it for younger 
brothers or sisters, said Mr 
Ray Harrup, deputy director 
of trading standards for 
Leicestershire Coenty 
CoundL 

He knew of at least eight 
accidents in which children 
suffered- crushed hands or 
nearly severed fingertips with 
the collapse of a tubular frame 
under foe weight of a toddler. 
In Angnst alone three more 
accidents involving the push- 
chair, which is held upright 
only by a fragile plastic tray 
fixed between foe axles, were 
reported although it had been 



Mr Givens: demonstrating 

the “horrendous" oven, 
withdrawn from sale early in 
foe year. 

However carefully laws 
were formulated there would 
always be loopholes. The 
Monneret pusfeebair, for 
example, could not be banned 
became ft was classified only 
as a “child’s plaything” and 
trading standards officers 
could do no more than urge 
retailers and importers to 
withdraw it, said Mr Hannp. 


Strasbourg split over drugs plan 


Brussels r Splits appeared 
yesterday in the European 
parliament’s new policy to- 
wards Europe’s dreg problem, 
with Socialist MEPs protest- 
ing that the hard-line ap- 
proach adopted by the Parli- 
ament's dreg committee _ - 
with backing-from the Bnlfcb 
Government — would be 


counter-productive and in- 
crease rather than reduce il- 
legal dreg trafficking (Richard 
Owen writes). 

The Parliament’s ‘ report 
calls for strict checks at the 
EEC's external frontiers and a 
co-ordinated crackdown by 
European police -forces on 
what Sir Jack Stewart-Oark, 


chairman of the Parliamenta- 
ry dregs comminee, called 
This filthy trade". 

Miss Carol Tongue, Labour 
MEP for London South-East, 
insisted that although drugs 
were a terrible problem, a “re- 
pressive moral crusade" 
would be ineffective. 





To make bread you need dough. 


|t% one of the happy facts of life that the poor, 
even in the worlds poorest countries, don’t 
want to be helpless receivers of aid. 

But farmers can’t grow food without land, 
and the rest of the population can't buy food 
without money. 

They need to acquire the skills and oppor- 
tunities that win bread. Without that, they are 
powerless to change their lives and the fortunes 
of their countries. 

For countries and for individuals earning 
power is vital. 

Your dough will be giving them just that.

US action on Pretoria I Mafia blam ed for child’s killing 
opens the door for 
British exports boost 


British business is expected 
• to boost exports to South 
Africa in the wake of growing 
United States disinvestment 
and in the light of South 
Africa's improved economic 
performance. 

British and South African 
trade representatives said yes- 
terday that the pro-sanctions 
climate in the US would 
probably mean a "bigger slice 
of the cake” for South Africa's 
main exporters, Britain, Japan 
and West Germany. 

Mr Raymond Parsons, the 
chief executive of the South 
African Association of Cham- 
bers of Commerce, said in 
London that senior British 
business executives had asked 
which US companies were 
"looking vulnerable” in South 
.Africa. 

"It is perfectly legitimate for 
British business to take a hard 
look at the the impact of US 
sanctions." he said. "If the 


By Nicholas Beeston 

question is 'Is there life after 
sanctions?', the answer is 'Yes. 
for those who want to take 
advantage'," he said. 

The trend had started two 
years ago when the total of 350 
US companies based in South 
Africa began to slip until now 
there were only250. 

Although the bulk of US 
sanctions prohibit the import 
of South African goods, rather 
than the export of American 
goods, there is strong pressure 
on US companies to cut all 
links with Pretoria. 

A British Government trade 
source added: "In theory if 
one major exporter drops out, 
it follows that the others 
would get a better share." 

A business analyst in South 
Africa said the increase in the 
gold price had turned the 
countiy into an increasingly 
attractive export market ana 
improved its payment record. 
Asked about the US sanc- 


tions. he said: "I would have 
thought it was a good chance 
for the UK to move m.” 

Although Britain adheres to 
some of the measures adopted 
by the Commonwealth and all 
those agreed by the EEC the 
Department of Trade and the 
Foreign Office still offer Brit- 
ish companies guidance if they 
want to trade with South 
Africa, through the commer- 
cial section of the British 
Embassy in Pretoria and the 
British Overseas Trade Board. 

A Foreign Office spokes- 
man said that there wasa ban 
on Government sponsorship 
for. trade missions to South 
Africa, but there mere no 
constraints on Government 
departments giving advice to 
firms wishing to trade there.

Cape Town (Renter) — Dr

Irish academic, said yesterday 
he will continue with a tour of 
South Africa despite being 
driven from a lecture hall on 
Tuesday night by chanring 
students who accused him of

where he has been lecturing on 
the politics of "siege societies" 
— Northern Ireland, Israel and 
South Africa. 


Last night's lecture, a public 
meeting, was the fast to be 
disrupted. He is due Co give 
four more talks to students 
during the next week and 
expects more protests over his 
refusal to accept anti-apart-

Colonel William William^ 
the association's secretary- 
general, said yesterday that if 
British traders found that 
there was a vaccuum left by 
American companies then it 
would be up to them to «*!«» 
advantage of it 

"British companies can do 
rather well in fulfilling the 
needs of the South African 
market” he said. 

But a spokesman for the 
United Kingdom-South Af- 
rica Trade Association pre- 
dicted that South Africa 
would try to compensate for 
US trade bars by providing 
alternatives from within its 
own resources. 


Nato general's 
Gibraltar visit 
offends Spain 

Spain yesterday expressed 
its "profound dislike” of the

Bernard Rogers, Nato's Su- 
preme Commander in

Gibraltar. 

Senor Francisco Fernandez 
Ordonez, the Foreign Min- 
ister, said he would be convey- 
ing his Government's feelings 
to Lord Carrington, the Sec- 
retary-General of Nato, in- 
dicating that Madrid had 
previously hinted it would 
regard such a visit "to the 
British colony of Gibraltar" as 
inopportune. 


Norwegian heavy water 
‘behind Israeli bomb’ 

From Tony Samstag, Olso 

Norwegian “heavy water” 
a prime objective of the 
occupying Germans during 
World War Two, may have 
given the Israelis the boost 
they needed to manufacture 
atomic weapons. 

Mr Sverre Lodgaard. a sci- 
entist attached to the Peace 
Research Institute of Oslo and 
its Swedish equivalent, the 
Stockholm International Pea- 
ce Research Institute (Sipri), 
says that it was 20 tons of 
heavy water sold by the 
Norwegians in the early 1 960s 
and a second shipment in 


1970, that enabled Israel to get 
its nuclear reactor plant 
operational. 

The first sale alone would 
have been enough to manu- 
facture one atomic bomb a 
year. 

The deal, agreed between 
the two governments after 
secret meetings in 1959, was 
struck after the Israelis had 
approached the United Stales 
and had turned down con- 
ditions for a sale which had 
included inspection of nuclear , 
sites.

Belgrade jails American Albanian 

From Dessa Trerisan, Belgrade 


A Yugoslav Albanian with 
American citizenship, whose 
arrest has provoked an uproar 
in the US Senate , has been 
sentenced to seven years' 
imprisonment here on charges 
of taking part in peaceful 
. secessionist demonstrations in 
the United States: 

Mr Pier Ivezai, who emi- 


grated from Yugoslavia 10 
years ago, is said to have 
joined in demands that the 
troubled Kosovo region be 
granted independence from 
Y ugoslavia and eventually ab- 
sorbed by Albania. 

Mr Ivezai was arrested 
when he arrived here to visit 
relatives. 


He was found guilty of! 
activities intent on overthrow- 
ing Yugoslavia's constitu- 
tional order and of active 
membership of an Albanian 
organization in the US which ( 
is actively propagating' 
Kosovo's secession. 

In Kosovo the situation 
remains uneasy. ' 


United Nations Educational, 
Scientific and Cultural Organ- 
ization (UtwscoX ended its 
month-long autumn session 
yesterday with no great 
achievements in the way of 
reforms. There was, neverthe- 
less, a feeling of relief and 
renewed hope over the trou- 
bled organization's future af- 
ter Mr Amadou M’Bow's sur- 
prise announcement that be 
would not be standing for a 
third term as Director- 
General J , 

Mr M’Bow, aged 65, who 
has been much criticized m 
the West for his autocratic 
leadership and poor manage- 
ment of the organization, 
explained his decision to leave 
as "a desire to make a positive 
contribution to the consolida- 
tion of relations of trust which 
must exist between all the 
members of the international 
community." 

Mr M’Bow, a Senegalese, 
was unanimously elected Dir- 
ector-General in 1974 and 
again in 1980. He insisted that 
he bad been in no way 
influenced by the "unjust 
attacks and pressures” to 
which he had been subjected 
over the past three years. 

Indeed, he claimed that he 
had taken his decision not to 
stand again at the moment of 
his re-election six years ago. 

If that were really so, he 
successfully managed to keep 
it from even his most intimate 
colleagues right up until his 
announcement at a dosed 
session of the board on Mon- 
day. His announcement ap- 
peared to take everyone by 
surprise. 

In a radio interview on 
Tuesday, Mr M'Bow said: 
"The facts have shown that 
these who wanted to kill off 
Unesco have not succeeded 
. . . Despite the withdrawal of 
two member states (the 
United States and Britain), 
and despite the loss of a third 
of its resources, Unesco has 
become a strong organ- 
ization." 

Mr M'Bow, whose candid- 
ature for a third term had 
already won the public sup- 
port of both the Organization 


* /■ 




Gaza * 


League, insisted that no new 
director-general could be an- 
pointed "if the Third Wow" 
and in particular Africa, c£ 
not want him." 

Mr Ivo Margan, the Yi**. 
Slav president of Unescov 
executive board* will xkov' 
write to the organization's 159 * 
member states asking than to ' 
put forward, before next April 
1, the names of candidatesto - 
succeed Mr M’Bow when his ' 
term comes to an end m • 
November, 1987. . - ; 

The list of candidates will be •' 
made public at the May sess- 
ion of the board, which wifi * 
then choose a single candidate - 

to be presented for deafon to - 

the Unesco general conference 
the following November. 

Among the names already *" 
being mooted are Prince Sadi

senior Japanese official at the -

However, it is thought that '■ 
as many as 30 or more names * 
may eventually be put for- *

rale out the possibility of new : 

pressure being brought to bear 

on Mr M'Bow to char? ;; hfe* 
mind should it prove impos-.*- 
sfble to reach agreement on ' 

any of the other candidates. 

Britain and the US have : 
both stated publicly that they * 
never sought to personalize ’ 
their criticisms of Unesco^and ■ 
that Mr M 1 Bow’s decision io 
withdraw would not mean 
that they would immediately . .

For a brief bat impressive 
moment Beirut's divided 
comm unities united yesterday 
when Christian Phahuigist 
militiamen formed an honour 
guard beside the coffin of the 
Sunni sheikh who was mur- 
dered by gasmen in the west- 
ern sector of the city. 

The mlli tinmen, in drab 
olive green uniforms, pre- 
sented arms as the cortege 
carrying Sheikh So bin Saleh 
crossed the front line into east 
Beirut on its way to TripolL 

It was a rare — perhaps 
unique — display of common 
grief in Lebanon for a man 
whose compassion and mod- 
eration were admired by 
Christians and Muslims alike. 
Sheikh Saleh, who was the 
second most important Snnni 
cleric in the country, had 
consistently opposed the ex- 
treme demands of Muslim re- 
ligions leaders, which may be 
why he was killed on Tuesday. 

As the predominantly Mus- 
lim community in the west of 
the city observed a general 
strike, Christian church bells 
tolled in the east. When the 
cortftge made its way through 
the city, Christians dosed 
their shops in sympathy. 

The P hnlangkr newspaper, 
al-Anud, mounted the sheikh, 
referring to him as “a symbol 
of national unity and an 
advocate of dialogue between 
the Lebanese factious". 


From Robert Fisk, Beirut 

The Lebanese Communist 
Party, condemning the murder 
as a “cowardly crime", 
churned it was intended to 
encourage extremist religious 
demands the sheikh opposed. 

Sadly, and predictably, the 
uncommon unity collapsed af- 
ter the dead sheikh had been 
taken across the front line 
when sniper fire crackled 
around the museum crossing 
point through which his cor- 
tege had passed only two boors 
earlier. The few motorists 
there — including at least one 
Western diplomat — had to 
drive away at high speed. 

The city's newspapers yes- 
terday carried a demand by an 
extremist group for the mnrder 
of a French journalist hostage 
in Lebanon. In what must be 
among the most horrible raes-

Kanffmann, a reporter for the 
weekly VEvamunt da Jeudi, 
as a “memorial gift" to mark 
the visit of Mr Shimon Peres, 
the Israeli Prime Minister, to 
France. 

The message, which is on- 
likely to have any effect on 
Islamic Jihad, raised serious 
questions about the role of 
news agencies in west Beirut 
which regularly publish ex- 
tremist statements. 

To distribute the messages 
and conditions of these groups 
Is one thing, bur to pass on 
demands for the murder of a 
hostage — as news agencies 
did on Tuesday — is quite 
another. As usual, the agen- 
cies requested that their 
names shonld not be included 
in news reports. - 

The wife of another hostage 
yesterday offered to mediate 
between the American Gov- 
ernment and Islamic Jihad for 
the release of three kidnapped 
Americans. 

Mrs Jean Sutherland, 
whose husband Thomas, the 
acting Dean of Agriculture at 
the American University, was 
abducted in west Beirut in 
June last year, said she “sens- 
ed a clear readiness by the two 
sides to disenss demands". 


The Swedish Government 
has used an otherwise routine 
Cabinet reshuffle, earlier this 
week, to reward Mrs Birgitia 
Dahl, the dynamic and popu- 
lar Minister of Environment 
and Energy, for what is gen- 
eral 1\ regarded as a brilliant 
performance in the chaotic 
aftermath of the Chernobyl 
disaster earlier this year. 

Despite her title. Mrs Dahl, 
who was 49 last month, 
formerly operated "without 
portfolio", m effect as a junior 
minister, under the Ministry 
of Industry. 

Now she has been given a 
ministry of her own in a move 
that reflects not only her 
personal achievements, but 
also the seriousness with 

which the Government is now 
forced to take environmental 
issues, particularly the now- 
urgent need to dismantle the 
country's nuclear power pro- 
gramme. 

Sweden voted in a referen- 
dum in I9S0 to phase out the 
use of nuclear power by the 
year 2010. The explosion at 
(Themobyl not only scuppered 
rising hopes in the nuclear 
industry that the voters might 
be persuaded to change their 
( minds in the meantime; it also 
rendered the 24-year phase- 
out period unacceptably long. 

“It took just a day . or half a 
day at least, to recognize what 
was going on at Chernobyl and 
its likely effects on Sweden." a 
Government spokesman told 
The Times yesterday. “Mrs 
Dahl took command of the 
situation immediately and has 

Chiang says 
Taiwan to lift 
martial law 

Hong Kong — (AFP) - 
President Chiang Ching-kuo. 
of Taiwan has said his Gov- 
ernment will soon propose the 
lifting of martial taw. which 
has been in force since 1949. 

Mr Chiang. eldest son of 
late president Chiang Kai- 
shek. was quoted by the Inter- 
national Herald Tribune as 
having told The Washington 
Post that the move would 
mean an end to trials of civi- 
lians in miliiary courts and the 
removal of restrictions on 
personal freedoms. The de- 
cision to lift martial law came 
from a long standing desire to 
democratize Taiwan and im- 
prove economic conditions, 
the President saidL 


remained in charge of the 
difficult turnabout in poliev 
aftcr the decision to dismantle 
the nuclear power programme 
as quickly as possible." 

The Government hopes to 
set a new target date next 
month for what Mrs Dahl has 
described as the “unpreced- 
ented” task of building “a

Thousands of members of 
the right-wing Mozambique 
Resistance Movement have 
recently crossed into Mozam- 
bique with their weapons after 
receiving an expulsion order 
from President Banda of Ma- 
lawi. Zimbabwe's semi-of- 
ficial daily newspaper. The 
Herald, reported yesterday. 

The newspaper quoted of- 
ficial sources as saying heavy 
fighting was taking place ben 
tween Mozambique troops 
and Renamo rebels in Tete 
province, with more than 500 
Civilian refugees fleeing into 
neighbouring Zambia. 

Expulsion of the rebels, 
referred to as “bandits” by the 
Zimbabwean news media, fol- 
lows a summit meeting in 
Blaniyre last month when Pre-* 
sideni Machd of Mozam- 
bique. President Kaunda of 
Zambia, and the Zimbabwean 
Prime Minister, Mr Robert 
Mugabe, demanded, decisive 
action against cross-border 
hideouts. 

“Officials have pointed out

that the bandits were not 
handed over to the Mozambi- 
can authorities, an action that 
would have conformed with 
the demands that Malawi 
cease supporting the bandits,” 
the Herald report said. 

The wave of rebel infiltra- 
tion in the past few days was 
said to be “wreaking havoc” 
in Mozambique's border ar- 
eas, with a major Renamo 
build-up taking place near the 
town of Zumbo, close to the 
headwaters of Lake Cabora 
Bassa. The authorities in 
Zambia's neighbouring Laun- 


gwa district say 128 families, 
numbering 553 people, have 
so for crossed the border to 
escape the fighting. 

The Herald questions whe- 
ther the expelled rebels repre- 
sent the entire Renamo farce 
based in Malawi, or a token 
number intended to give the 
impression that President 
Banda is complying with the 
demands of the frontline 
states' leaders. After meeting 
President Banda in Blau tyre. 
President Mach el threatened 
to blockade landlocked Mar j 
lawi and move his Soviet- 
supplied rockets up to their 
common border if Renamo 
infiltration continued. 

Malawi, which is the only 
member of the Organization 
of African Unity to maintain 

foil diplomatic ties with South 
Africa, denies giving the Moz- 
ambican rebels sanctuary or 
support South Africa pledged 
to cut off aid to Renamo under 
its 1984 Nkomati accord, 
which it has continually been 
accused of violating.

Weinberger in China 


US supports the 
‘middle kingdom’ 


From Robert Grieves, Pelting 


In an interview conducted 
by ABC News In Peking on 
Wednesday, Mr Caspar Wein- 
berger, the US Defence Sec- 
retary, pledged continued 
American military support for 
China's “equidistant” foreign 
policy between the two 
superpowers. 

Mr Weinberger, who is in 
China for a week's visit, said 
that the US had already signed 
numerous technological agree- 
ments with China “involving 
such things as large calibre 
artillery ammunition, defen- 
sive systems, logistical sys- 
tems, communications sys- 
tems, things of that kind that 
will help them defend their 
country." 

He added: “And we're going 
to continue to do this to 
whatever extent the Chinese 
people would like us to. We 
think the security and sov- 
ereignty of China is an enor- 
mously important factor in 
the security of the world." 

Asked if he thought China's 
foreign policy would, “over 
the long haul” be equidistant 
to both the United States and 
die Soviet Union, or if it 
would lean more towards the 
US, Mr Weinberger replied: 
“They are, after afi, the Mid- 
dle Kingdom, so h would not 
be amiss if they were equi- 
distant from everybody." 

Asked if he thought the 
ninth round of high level Sino- 
Soviet talks now underway in 
Peking posed a threat to 
developing ties between the 
US and China, Mr Weinberger 


replied: “I don't think these 
talks have been a thrift- 
because the Soviets have 
shown no movement toward 
removing the three obstacles 
that the Chinese quite pnra- 
erly say stand in the way ora 
better relationship.” 

The three obstacles died by 
the Chinese are the Soviet 
invasion of Afghanistan, Sov- 
iet support for the Vietnamese 
invasion of Cambodia, and 
the deployment of Soviet di- 
visions on the Sino-Soviet 
border. 

In a 3 y? -hour working ses- 
sion on Wednesday with Mr 
Zhang Aiping, China's De- 
fence Minister, Mr Wein- 
berger discussed those issues 
as well as the deployment of . 
Soviet missiles in Asia and the 
growth of the Soviet Pacific 
fleet 

Today Mr Weinberger is 
scheduled to meet Mr Drag 
Xiaoping, China's paramount 
leader. 



Mr Weinberger: vow to 
continue support. 


Peking seeks more ties 
with North Koreans 


From Our Own Correspondent, Peking 


In the wake of its participa- 
tion in the Asian Games in 
South Korea, China is seeking 
to strengthen its diplomatic 
ties with North Korea, accord- 
ing to Western diplomats in 
Peking. 

“The North Koreans are 
unhappy that China, for the 
first time; seat five planeloads 
or athletes directly to SeonL” a 
diplomat said yesterday. 

“Even though permission to 
do so took the Chinese months 
to negotiate, the North Kore- 
ans believe that they have been 
betrayed by Peking."

yang have come as Moscow

P«st five years, Peking has

foms good diplomatic relations 
with North Korea. 

The new Soviet conrtship of 

North Korea threatens to on-

UBOTg act, the sources said. 
The North Koreans have 


consistently denied that the 
Russians are influencing 
them, but the Chinese do not 
seem to believe it,” said an- 
other diplomat. 

Both China and the Soviet 
Union signed treaties of nm- 
tnal co-operation and friend- 
ship with North Korea fo 
1961. at the time of the Sino- 


Soviet break. Earlier, China 
had supported North Korea 
daring the Korean War.

begun to alllow Soviet aircraft 
to overfly its territory and in 
July allowed Soviet naval 
vessels to tie np at the North

In exchange, Moscow has

countries were not immedi- 
ately available. 

. Daring the July celebra- 
tions m Pyongyang, Soviet and

ly vied to win the favour of Mr

“The Chinese delegation 
was more senior in rank, but 
the Soviets were prepared to

On Tuesday, President 1J

first Oleilo, in Hamburg in the 
early Seventies, not even the sagest 
of the sage could have predicted 
that his hundredth stage appear- 
ance in the pan would take place in 
Los Angeles. Id those days LA was 
virtually a town without opera, at 
least on an international level and 
the last time it could boast a major 
resident company was back in the 
Thirties. 

Then in 1982 the Falstaff under 
Giulini. co-produced with Covent 
Garden, gave it a taste for the real 
thing. Visits from the Royal Opera 
and then the Deutsche Open 
Beilin, whetted the palate further. 
And this week the Music Center 
Opera Association has its inaugural 
season: with new productions of 
Oieilo and Salome (by Sir Peter 
Hall) to follow. Grand opera is 
back in town. 

And in Tinseltown, a city not 
lacking expertise when it comes to 


The search for peace against imperious villainy: Pladdo WZIflli 
(right) in his new interpretation of Otello withSherrill Mflnes's 1 


hie stars, it is advisable to go 

for the top. even if you do not 
happen to be making movies. The 
top at the moment is Domingo's 
Otello. That hundredth perfor- 
mance was to have been in 
Chicago, but the Mexican earth- 
quake put paid to that. So to LA 


OPERA 


goes the honour: it is one well 
worth acquiring. 

Domingo has not sung the part 
since making Franco Zeffirelli's 
film and. with his director. Gotz 
Friedrich, has completely re- 
thought the role. One of Domingo's 
supreme qualities is his refusal to 
trail an interpretation from house 
to house as a kind of visiting card. 
If his LA Otello is far from 
Zeffirelli's Catholic interpretation 
of a warrior who embraces an alien 
faith and then is forced to discard 
it. it is equally far from the raging 
bull that was seen Hamburg. 

The Otello Domingo now gives 
us is the warrior tired of war and 
arms, who seeks repose in the 
bosom of his wife. Before the Love 
Duet begins he even sinks in 
fa tigue on a convenient rock. She is 
his prop and. as lago himself 
remarks at the start of Act II. his 
control: “II Duce del nostro Duce”. 
His downfall is that the prop is bit 
by bit knocked away from beneath 
him and without it Otello is 
finished — “Otello fiT. 

Domingo makes him a figure 
gaum and weary in all but those 
outbursts of rage and emotion 
which he draws up from the well of 
his resources. And weary, of 
course, in all but voice. The tenor is 
back in shining quality, with 
perhaps less of the baritone timbre 


than before. Domingo now calls 
less on sheer volume and more on 
delicately shaped sound, often 
starting with the softest of notes. In 
Act III “Dio! mi potevi scagliar" 
began almost in a whisper, building 
up to its inevitable crescendo. This 
new Otello is a former man of war 
in search of peace, which he loses 
entirely when he is forced to put on 
his Moorish clothes once more to 
kill Desdemona. 

Gabriela Benackova. who was 
conveniently singing Jenufa up the 
coast in San Francisco before she 
does so in London, filled in that 
pan at 4S hours' notice after the 
designated soprano. Daniela Dessu 
pulled out through illness. By good 
fortune she fitted in with 
Domingo's middle-aged interpreta- 
tion by providing a wife both 
sturdy and supportive —until she is 
forced to be otherwise. The creamy 
tones, rich and blessedly accurate, 
recalled Margaret Price. The Wil- 
low Song was delivered with 
exceptional vocal control, the Ave 
Maria a bit plummy. 

If memory serves. Sherrill 
Milnes was lago to Domingo's 
Otello in Hamburg. The voice took 
a little time to warm up and An 1 
found him squeezing out some of 
the notes. Later, using his height 
and presence and spurred by 
Dommgo. this became an lago of 
imperious villainy, at its best when 
trickling poison into Otello's ear in 
“Era la none”. Praise too for 
Jonathan Mack's Cassio. a golden 


boy with the right voice for a 
Fenton, should anyone be sear- 
ching. 

Gotz Freidrich's production 
started stodgily. with unconvincing 
polythene waves coursing across 
the "stage. The mood was too often 
Teutonic — soldiers who might 
have done a bit of mercenary work 
after the Thirty Years War — rather 
than Venetian-colonial. But when 
his three principals were at the 
centre of the action the touch was 
sure, despite a composite set by 
Gunther Schneider-Siemsscn. 
which proved oddly unmalleable 
for the scene changes - the opera 
was played with a single inter- 
mission — and until the final act 
none too atmospheric. 

Lawrence Foster's players, bas- 
ically the LA Chamber Orchestra 
augmented, were at their best in the 
most intimate passages of the 
score. They will have plenty of 
opporluniles to show their paces 
now that opening-night nerves are 
over in Butterfly and Salome, of 
which more anon. Thanks to its 
singers and its general admin- 
istrator, Peter Hemmings (former 
Scottish Opera, former LSO). the 
Music Center Opera has got off to a 
high-class start and the LA audi- 
ence. u'hich dearly has a taste for 
the big time they have been 
deprived of for so long in this field, 
were on their feet with applause 
within a moment of curtain-fall.

Central Ballet of 
China 

Sadler’s Wells 


Most of the second pro- 
gramme by the Chinese Ballet 
at Sadler's Wells consists of 
works created for the com- 
pany. The one exception. An- 
ton Dolin’s Variations for 
Four . justifies its place by 
revealing the high quality of 
the male dancers. I cannot 
remember a better account of 
this bravura showpiece since 
the exceptional cast for whom 
it was made almost 30 years 
ago. Remounted in China by 
Dolin in 1983. not long before 
his death, it is built with spirit, 
style and nice dean technique 
by all four men. Zhao Minhua 
is outstanding in the last solo, 
with its tricky changes of 
tempo and manner. 

The programme opens with 
part of the most famous 
Chinese ballet. Red Detach- 
ment of Women. Set during 
the Chinese civil war, it shows 
a slave girl, trying to escape 
from a cruel master, beaten 
and left for.dead, but saved by 
revolutionary scouts who in- 
vite her to join the women's 
battalion that gives the ballet 
its name. Jiang ZuhuTs stag- 
ing is full of atmospheric 
detail aided by Ma Yung- 
hong’s mysterious woodland 
setting. The bold miming of 
Wang Yanping as the girl Zhu 
Yueping as her rescuer, and 
several nasty viilians, has 
conviction, and this 20- 
minute extract left me wanting 


DANCE 


to see the rest of the ballet. 

The most substantial offer- 
ing is The Maud cf the Sea, a 
ballet in two acts based on a 
Chinese folk-tale. It is a 
revised, condensed version of 
a work from the company's 
earliest days, supervised then 
by the Russian baflet-master 
Pyotr Gusev. 

Presumably because of bis 
influence, it has similarities 
with The Humpbacked Horse, 
a work that convinced 19th- 
century Russians of their abil- 
ity to use national themes and 
dance traditions in ballet. This 
does the same for China, 
drawing on folk-dances (there 
is a delightfully comic number 
for four men with adaptable 
fimny hats) and the acrobatics 
of the so-called Peking Opera. 

The adventures of the hero, 
a hunter who rescues a sea- 
nymph from a mountain de- 
mon, include being plunged 
beneath the waves — cue for a 
pretty underwater ballet — 
temptation by a snake spirit 
(Xue Quingbua, whose arms 
undulate with seductive spite) 
and such demonic tricks as a 
colourful bouquet that sud- 
denly turns black and noxious. 

Zhang Weiqiang dances 
boldly as the hunter; Ou Lu 
relishes his diabolical and 
often funny possibilities as the 
demon; and Seng Ying dances 
beautifully, although lacking 
pathos, as the sea-maiden. 
The company as a whole 
impresses greatiy.

Ghosts 

Young Vic 


Wonderful though she is in the 
rote, there are other good 
reasons for seeing this revival 
besides Vanessa Redgrave's 
performance of Mrs Aiving. 

Ibsen in mutton-chop whis- 
kers may be a thing of the past, 
but previous encounters with 
Ghosts have persuaded me 
that it is a masterpiece more 
revered (not to say dreaded) 
than loved: and that, for all its 
incomparable plot structure 
and decorations of joy. the 
prevailing experience is of 
being shut up in an airless 
room amid the Norwegian 
darkness. Jonathan Miller's 
1974 Greenwich production 
did something to banish the 
claustrophobia. But for sheer 
tonal and rhythmic variety, 
comedy, and the sight of 
characters escaping Ibsen's 
grip to lead their own lives, 
David Thacker's production 
comes as a great and un- 
expected gust of fresh air. 

For a start, the text, adapted 
in rehearsal from Peter. 
Watts's translation, d eaves 
perfectly to the character of 
each speaker and the changing 
moods of the play. One exam- 
ple must suffice. At the end of 
Act 1, the off-stage giggles of 
Oswald and Regina evoke the 
ghost of the philandering Cap- 
tain. In one standard transla- 
tion Mrs Aiving then has the 
line: “The couple in the 
.conservatory — walk”. Here, 
Miss Redgrave staggers as if 
about to feint, then says “The 


THEATRE 


man and the woman are 
walking again". It is a moment 
of Jamesian horror. 

In the text so in the 
performance, everything is 
done to intensify and make 
explicit elements which are 
often relegated to the subtext: 
in forecasting Regina's hidden 
parentage in her seductive 
approaches to Manders, clar- 
ifying Engstrand's sanctimo- 
nious blackmail of the Pastor 
or dropping a hint (which 
even Ibsen left unexplored) 
that Manders rejected Mrs 
Aiving as much through im- 
potence as moral duty. 

Mrs Aiving and Manders 
can only be discussed in their 
relationship to each other 
and, in Tom WiDdmson, Miss 
Redgrave Ins a partner of 
matching weight Throughout 
they pursue the double roles of 
priest and lapsed parishoner, 
and of failed lovers. The irony 
is that Mr Wilkinson has all 
the authority in the first 
department and Miss Red- 
grave all the authority in the 
second. There is a wonderful 
moment in Act II when she 
challenges his' moral claims, 
and he collapses as a defeated 
private man putting up no 
resistance when she winds her 
arms around his neck. 

The other long-distance 
irony is that Mrs Aiving is 
clearly more gifted than he in 
the supposedly masculine 
world of business affairs; and, 
after submitting to his finan- 
cial arrangements in the first 
act. she curtly gathers the 


papers together and dismisses 
him once the orphanage has 
burnt down. 

Mr Wilkinson does not only 
strive to make Manders the 
bigot seem likeable. He 
chooses the subtier and more 
faithful course of presenting 
him as a hopelessly divided 
character; forcing himself into 
declarations of pious indigna- 
tion which he is able to mouth 
thanks only to the gullible 
naivety which, in other 
circumstances, is one of his 
most his endearing traits. 

The clue to Miss Redgrave's 
performance is its practicality. 
She is never an actress to 
discharge torrents of static 
emotion; when she welcomes 
an unwanted visitor with a 
bright smile, or makes her 
stony confession, or explodes 
into sudden anger, it is be- 
cause she wants to make 
something happen. When it is 
done, she wipes the slate 
dean. And. when past tightens 
its grip on present, she alone 
remains down-to-earth. 

Mrs Aiving has gone 
through all this before in her 
ghastly marriage, and she 
knows bow to keep up appear- 
ances. It is only when the news 
of Oswald's malady strikes 
home that we see her as the 
coward she claims to be: 
fleeing distracted over the set 
before being brutally captured 
by the doomed boy (Adrian 
Dunbar), and finally bending 
low to the floor, morphine in 
hand, in an ecstacy of irreso- 
lute grief.

sensed that the whole pro-

title - was going to be swept 
aside, exposed as another of 
Vaughan Williams’s famous 
verbal smokescreens encoding 
his music's real -emotional 
meaning 

The succeeding allegro in- 
tensified this feeling Haitink, 
blending instrumental timbres 
masterfully, made something 
very sinister — even grotesque 
— of the sul ponticelli effects 
and muted-horn intrusions.

over-jaunty strut of the street 
tunes: it conveyed a brittle, 
rather callous city, and it set 
one musing over this work's 
origins. Although conceived 
before the First World War, it 
was extensively rewritten dur- 
ing that slaughter. The super- 
ficial chirpiness of even the 
“distant sounds of the Strand" 
had, in that time, been ex- 
posed as a cruel facade. 

Haitink's shaping of this 
first movement decided his 
whole interpretation, which 
was persuasively imple- 
mented by the London Phil- 
harmonic Orchestra. The 
Nocturne had a similarly dan- 
gerous excitability: ver y swi ft 
(the rapport between strings 
and wind was excellently se- 
cure). conveying the feeling of 
time running out. 

Then came the cry of an- 
guish at the finale's beginning, 
the march-tune paced with 
immense sadness (played like 
this it certainly evoked the 
hunger-march that some say it 
depicts) and. near the end, a 
remarkable, quasi -Mahlerian 
emphasis on a high violin line, 
straining discordantly to es- 
cape from the march's sombre 
harmonic implications. 

It would be difficult to find 
a more apt symbol for the 
social tragedy Vaughan Wil- 
liams might have been 
expressing in A London

Messiaen’s new mementoes 


Jennifer Bate 

Westminster 

Cathedral 

Cascading trenchantly into 
this great brick cavern on 
Tuesday night came Mes- 
siaen's most recently com- 
pleted work, Livre au Saint 
Sacrement, performed with 
the unashamed positiveness, 
wide-ranging colour and sheer 
virtuosity one has come to 
associate with Jennifer Bate's 
organ-playing. 

The work, given here for the 
first time in Britain, was set 
securely on what will clearly 
be a much-performed course, 
even if in future one is 
probably more likely to hear 
extracts than the whole thing 
The 18 sections of the Livre 
lack the unity of Messiaen's 
preceding oigan cycle, the 
Trinity meditations, and they 
are too many to cohere by 
contrast in the manner of Les 
Corps glorieux or the Livre 
d'orgue. . 

One is faced, rather, with a 
sequence of illustrations in the 
manner of La Nalivili du 
Seigneur, and most of the 
movements return to earlier 
times in their simplicity of 
form and gesture. Although it 


lasts for close on two hours, 
the work is not a consumma- 
tion of Messiaen's organ 
composing but rather a gar- 
land of mementoes. 

The larger design, with its 
mirroring “septenaries”, as in 
the oratorio La Transfigura- 
tion, is a matter more of 
descriptive intention than of 
musical form. The first 
septenary concerns Christ’s 
bodily life on earth, the second 
his continuing presence in the 
sacrament; and the whole is 
introduced by a group of four 
short movements concerned 
with the act of faith. . 

In executing this plan 
Messiaen bas been led into 
areas he has touched only 
rarely: there is, most notably, 
a depiction of the Crucifixion 
in drilling sustained dis- 
sonances. But, much more 
commonly, the style and sub- 
stance are familiar. There are 
bird-songs, all collected in the 
Holy Land, although their 
presence is relatively re- 
strained except in one move- 
ment made up entirely of 
them (“The Joy of Grace"). 

There is a good deal of 
plainsong in the work, and of 
course great tracts of modal 
harmony, rampaging or still. 
“The Two Walls of Water", 


seeing God in the divided Red 
Sea and the split Host, will 
join the earlier showpieces in 
the virtuoso style Messiaen 
inherited from his master 
Dupre. “The Risen and the 
Light of Life” will make a 
gloriously barbaric exit pro- 
cessional with its opening and 
dosing fanfares for trumpets 
and immense contra-bas- 
soons. 

There is also a wordless 
sacred drama (on Christ's 
risen appearance to Mary 
Magdalen), besides the awe- 
some chorales and timeless 
meditations that give this 
diverse work its main features.

THE 
GOOD SCHOOLS 


^ yV Part 4: Co-ed schools 

\ The tide may be 
I turning towards co- 
I educational schools, 
f but their objectives 

are often very 

different from those 
of the traditional 
single-sex colleges. In their new survey 
Amanda Atha and Sarah Drnmmond found 
more emphasis on character-forming than 
on academic success in the top 20 schools 


m 


W e found much ex- 
cited talk about co- 
education in the 
private boarding 
sector, though a 
wishy-washy approach to what it 
actually is. The definition of a co- 
ed school adopted -by the Indepen- 
dent Schools Information Service 
(ISIS), the propaganda arm of the 
independent sector, is one with 
both sexes throughout and treated 
equally, although there is some 
talk of a minimum 25 per cent of 
whichever sex is thinner on the 
ground. 

Boy/glrt ratios vary wildly 
from 240/32 at Rannoch to 
1 72/1 73 at Bedales. At Bryan ston, 
incidentally, where there are two 
boys to every girl, the bead, Tom 
Wheare, said: “If parents ask why, 
I say that is the proportion of men 
to women in top management, in 
the son of careers these pupils will 
eventually go in to." 


The problem of boarding co-eds 
is far more complex than that of 
day co-eds, which are backed up 
■by a long tradition in the main- 
tained sector. Very few boarding 
schools started out with the inten- 
tion of being co^d. Wymo nriham 
was one and MiUfiekf another. 
Even Bedales, founded in 1-S93 
and the oldest, had three years 
with boys only. Many private co- 
eds were founded m response to a 
desire to break away from tra- 
dition and to ' be run along 
“progressive” lines. 


The majority of the co-ed 
boarding schools we visited were 
boys' schools' feeling the winds of 
change and most especially the 
chill winds .of economic do 
pression (particularly in Scotland, 

where buildings are harder to heat 
and converted co-eds come in high 
proportion). The logistics of 
putting the two sexes together are 
very complex — extra space, two 


sets of dorms, locks on layatones, 
a sewing room, more tennis courts 
and staff with experience. Striking 
the balance between co-existence 
and foil integration is difficult, but 
when it works, it is very much in 
demand. 

I n da« there is a school of 
thought (pushed by girls' 
schools) that boys are more 

riftmanHing but WG did OOt 

observe this to any startling 
extent. Having sat in on co-ed 
classes, we noticed that boys' 
voices tend to drown the gills', 
though this was more marked 
where girls had come in only at 
VI th form. We found girls at co- 
eds, like the boys, questioning, 
articulate and prepared to .be 
challenged in class. 

We round academic results to be 
lower compared with single-sex 
establishments, but the compari- 
son is misleading because co-eds 
tend to be comprehensive in 


intake and genuinely keen to 
develop the whole person 
Out of class, the hands-on 


experience on a day-to-day 
wnrk un a fine head ot s 


can work up a fine head of steam. 
We found canoodling in rhodo- 
dendrons, libraries and studies. 
Being constantly thrown together, 
argues the head of Wyraondham, 
means they are not winding up to 
Saturday night. “Now it’s break- 
fast, lunch and tea together — 
more like a family." 

However, we did observe some 
intense relationships, which 
would have been kept at arms 
length by post at angle-sex 
establishments. We heard “of far 
more messed-up A levels and 
other similar symptoms at boys 
schools with VI th form gins. 
Heartaches, heartbreaks and 
friendships seemed to survive 
more readily at co-eds. 

What stands out is that boys and 
girls co-exisring were far more 


mature - and a good deal man; 
natural — than their pots « 
single-sex schools. The girk m 
noticed, are less giggly, more a&fe

NIGEL MANSELL ■ 

. v For mula One season nears its climax in 
— M gyico on Sunday with Nigel Mansell on 
; 4 j — l^rget to be the first British champion 
: : \\ jor 10 ye ars. James Hqnt, the 1976 winner, 

• * s ^ared some of Mansell’s foibles and wishes 
_him well; surprisingly, few other insiders do 


'*■ f!jW 




N igel Mansell seems 
perfectly suited to the 
mantle he has as- 
sumed among British 
. sports enthusiasts and. 

indeed, the British public in 
general: that of Boys' Own hero. 
*jis disarming honesty, working- 
class charm and occasional na- 
ivety combine with his aura of 
determination to make him ideal 
material for those whose natural 
sympathy is with the underdog, 
^ei should he become the seventh 
“ nl on to win grand prix racing's 
world championship in Mexico on 
Sunday, the cheering will by no 
means be universal. 

Mansell’s qualities are well 
appreciated by those who know 
him best, starting with the devoted 
circle of his immediate family. 
Most racing drivers, and all 
British ones, face a soul-destroy- 
ing financial struggle as they daw 
their way through the junior 
classes: in Mansell’s case, the 
decision to raise capital to support 
his ambitions by selling their 
home some years ago was readily 
endorsed by his wife. Roseau ne. 
They also had to postpone their 
great desire to have children. No 
doubt they would agree that it was 
worth it: success has brought 
financial security, and they have 
two beautiful children. 

Bui there is another jury, bidden 
from the average spor ts fam which- • 
gives a running verdict on the 
worth of drivers and on then- 
potential suitability for the role of 
world champion. This is the 
collective voice of the insiders: the 
team personnel, the legislators, 
some of the senior sponsors and a 
veritable army of specialist media 
representatives. 

There are, perhaps, 1,000 of 
them and they make up the grand 
prix circus. The sad and bewilder- 
ing fact is that by and large they do 
not want Mansell to win. 

Like any other high-earning 
sport, grand prix racing is a very 
ego-intensive business; after all, it 
is ego — controlled ego, that is — 
which makes winners and cham- 
pions. Drivers are very protective 
of the world championship: it is 
the pinnacle to which they all 
aspire, it can only be won by one 
man in each season, and a driver's 


BIOGRAP 


ego is mightily strained when a 
chap he thinks he's better than,' 
and possibly dislikes, takes the 
title. Naturally, if he cannot win it 
himself be wants it to be won by 
the driver whom he most admires, 
respects or likes (in that descend- 
ing order). Above afl. the drivers 
'Want a worthy champion. 

T his sDeut vote takes 
place all the time, and it 
is by no means un- 
common for approval to 
be withheld from the 
champion. The opinion spreads as 
drivers talk among themselves, 
forming a consensus which in? 
fluences the rest of the fraternity. 
Here lies- Mansell’s, biggest ' 
problem. V : • • _ 

A year ago, the suggestion that 
Mansell might now be in tire 
running for the world champion- 
ship Would have been pooh- 
poohed by the insiders; they have 
never seen him as bang made of 
the right maleriaL The mefe- 
morph osis that took place be- 
tween the Belgian Grand Prix at 
Spa in September last year, where 
he came second, and his victory in 
the Canadian Grand Prix at 
Montreal in June this year has 
been the most spectacular I have 
seen a driver undergo- • 

1 like to feel that, in a small and 
almost inadvertent way, I contrib- 
uted to the change. .From the time 
he first came into grand prix 
racing in 1 980, as a protege of the 
late Colin Chapman, founder and 
boss of Team Lotus, Mansell 
enjoyed a reasonably well earned 


reputation for getting over-excited 
when things were going welL At 
Monte Carlo in 1984, he and his 
Lotus were waltzing away from 
the rest of the field and heading for 
his first grand prix victory when 
he lost control on a straight — 
albeit a tricky one, and in the rain. 
Knowing, as Nigel certainly did, 
how fast he was pulling away, a 
more prudent driver would have 
slowed down in order to avoid 
such a disaster. Sadly, he picked a 
grand prix watched around the 
world by a television audience 
numbered in the hundreds of 
millions. 

It . was with bis history of 
misadventures in mind that on. the; 
morning of the race at Spa, as 
Mansell was recording the fastest 
tune in wet conditions during die 
warm-up session, a friend voiced 
the opinion that he no Aanoft 
of finishing the race — adding, 
with a flourish, the offer of 
ridiculous odds. In no time at all 
my money was in his hand. 

Now I have first-hand experi- 
ence of Nigel's problem with over- 
excitement, having thrown away 
two or three grands prix when in a 
winning position before I man- 
aged to win one. Armed with my 
vested interest I decided to protect 
my stake by stressing to Nigel in 
person the importance of finishing 
races and suggesting several ways 
of driving defensively to protect a 
good position. 

In the race he stopped my heart 
twice by going off the slippery 
track, one of the excursions being 


the result of just the sort of 
Mansellian problem with which 
we were familiar. Fortunately he 
continued unscathed to second 
place — and a windfall for James. 
From then on he began to mature 
visibly. 

His peers remained un- 
impressed, despite a couple of 
wins — inherited through the 
misfortunes of other drivers. In 
Montreal however, he came of 
age, dominating the meeting and 
beating all comers fair and square. 
During that eight-month period, 
which included the five-month 
dose season, his whole aura had 
changed, success breeding a new 
confidence. It was a joy to see. 

When examining his suitability 
as a potential world champion, 
though, Mansell's personality 
raises many more questions than 
his new-found maturity as a

fact is that

Nigel Mansell was bom In 
Birmingham on August 8. 1954. 
After graduating from Solihull 
College an as engineer he worked 
his way up — starling wfth go- 
kart racing. He was so badly hurt in 
one race that a clergyman 
administered the last rites, but 
Mansell told him to "buzz off.” 

As recently as 1978 ManseS was

driver. His naivety may appear 
quaintly attractive to the public at 
home, but in the business it is 
often seen as crossing the border 
into foolishness — unacceptable in 
the sport's standard-bearer. 

Two weeks ego, Enzo Ferrari 
gave his annual press conference 
and announced his intention to 
sue Mansell for breach of contract, 
claiming that the British driver 
had signed an agreement to race 
for him in 1987 but had then gone 
on to renew his deal with the 
Wi lliams team inawirf On the 
free of it, this seems incredible 
behaviour. 

H e had been negotiating 
with W illiam s for a 
time before this 
season's British 
Grand Prix, in an 
atmosphere somewhat strained by 
the imbalance between his wages 
and those of his team mate, the 
former world champion Nelson 


Piquet, whose retainer-- the figure 
of S3.3 million has been bandied 
about — is believed to be nearly 
five times what Mansell received, 
even though Mansell has been 
dominant on the circuit. On more 
than one occasion the team 
thought they had a deal only to 
find when it came to sorting out a 
written contract that Mansell had 
changed his mind. 

Williams, however, had a prob- 
lem of their own: Honda, the 
suppliers of their engines, had 
paid Piquet’s salary for 1986 but 
were reluctant to do so again; in 
fret they were suggesting that 


1980; Joined Lotus. No 
championship points 

1983: Finished 14th fai drivers* 
championship 

1984: Finished ninth 

1985: Joined WHBams team. 
First victory — European Grand 
Prix, Brands Hatch; also won 
South African GP 

1986: Won in Belgium, Canada, 
France, Britain and Portugal 


Williams might like to pay them a 
token fee for their services. It 
seems strange to put at risk the 
financial health of the team that 
has already given them the 
manufacturers' title and is almost 
certain to complete the job with 
the drivers* championship. 

Honda's claim to have the best 
engine is certainly true, but it is 
also true that Williams has the 
equal best, if not the best, chassis 
in which to mount it the disputed 
sum seems minuscule next to the 
amount it cost Honda to build and 
develop the engine, and a pinprick 
next to the publicity value of TV 
coverage for of their success across 
tbeir world markets. Nevertheless, 
suddenly the Williams team were 
facing the possibility of both a 
smaller budget and a higher wage 
bill 

Then came the British Grand 
Prix, and the hype that went with 
ft. Winning in similar circum- 
stances at Brands Hatch 10 years 
ago gave me the most emotional 
day of my career (in no way 
diminished by a subsequent dis- 
qualification), and ft must have 
been the same for MansriL One 
can only suppose that the exhilara- 
tion undermined his judgement, 
because his subsequent behaviour 
was reminiscent of his driving in 
the days before maturity arrived. 

Four days after Brands Hatch he 
visited the Ferrari factory, where 
he is said to have signed what 
Ena) Ferrari describes as a regular 
agreement. Mansell denies signing 
a contract, but if Ferrari followed 


his normal system when making 
deals then both parties would have 
signed a summary (in English! of 
what had been agreed at the 
meeting. If that is indeed what 
took place, then as I understand ft 
anything written above those sig- 
natures would be le^lly binding 
in both English and Italian law. 

The Ferrari people were cer- 
tainly astonished when Mansell 
broke all previous driver-signing 
records by concluding business 
within a few hours of having met 
them for the first lime: it is usually 
a protracted process. The Italians 
would also have been surprised by 
the presence of Mansell’s man- 
ager. It is not normal practice for 
managers to participate in con- 
tract negotiations between drivers 
and teams; their essential role is to 
handle commercial deals outside 
the business of racing. In the grand 
prix world, where the drivers and 
team managers know each other, 
you are expected to be abie to 
speak for yourself 

When he got back home, how- 
ever. Mansell seems to have 
changed his mind and decided to 
stay with Williams for another 
year. Perhaps an even worse 
situation was only avoided be- 
cause. after he had left the Ferrari 
offices in Maranello. the Ferrari 
people appear to have decided that 
they did not want him in the team 
after all. Remarking that Mansell's 
behaviour had "amazed" him, 
Enzo Ferrari told the press con- 
ference: "This does not alter our 
great admiration of Mansell as a 
driver, but it does show us the 
kind of person with whom we 
would have been dealing." 

The Williams team were them- 
selves less than happy after the 
Hungarian Grand Pn\, when the 
Press reported that Piquet, who 
won, had used a different and 
better differential unit in his car 
without letting on to bis team 
mate. This was blatantly untrue — 
all discoveries are pooled by the 
drivers and their respective race 
engineers in debriefing sessions 
after each practice, and they had 
simply decided on different 
settings. 

W hatever ManseU 
said on the subject, 
and whoever he 
talked to. it is pos- 
sible that he got 
caught by the transition from star 
to superstar, and by the sudden 
and traumatic change in relation- 
ships with the media. He will have 
to choose his remarks with care in 
future. 

The incident in Budapest was 
consistent with criticisms made by 
members of both teams for whom 
he has driven in Formula One. A 
senior Lotus man and former 
colleague says: "He always tries 
his hardest. 100 per cent, but if the 
the car wasn't performing as he 
thought it should, he behaved as if 
the whole world was against him. - 
A member of the Williams 
management also praised his 
consistent all-out effort, making 
the point that no driver is perfect 
and that effort redeems a mul- 
titude of sins, but he also de- 
scribed Mansell as "a whinger". 

I hope his luck holds in the last 
two races. The fortune he has 
enjoyed this season has been a just 
reward for the years of struggle, 
and his driving from Canada on 
has shown Itiorto be entirely 
worthy of the title. The rough 
edges will be no problem as long as 
he shows the same capacity for 
rapid learning out of the car as in 
it. I speak from experience, be^ 
cause I was far more troublesome 
than he has been or is ever likely to 
be. I wish him all the best.

There is plenty for day trip- 
pers to do in and around the 
Channel ports beside shop- 
ping and eating. 

Zeebrugge is a fishing port — 
the busiest in Belgium — and a 
hoiidav resort in its own right 
u-iih a vast sandy beach. 
Osiend is more convivial, 
with a three-master converted 
into a marine museum among 
the bobbing yachts, an aquar- 
ium to visit between the two 
big fish halls, and splendid 
beaches on the far side of 
town. 

But from either the star 
attraction is Bruges. Stranded

glorious medieval past this is 
fhe most perfectly preserved 
old town of northern Europe.

day cross-Channel trip, 
Robin Young selects the sights to see

tural ornament. 

It would be silty to daim 
that Calais can compete, and 
bear in mind that for pedes- 
trians the boat terminals are a 
bus ride from , either of the 
town's two centres. But . the - 
walk from one to the other, 
along rue Royale. and up 
Boulevard Jacquard, takes 
you past two pleasant paries, 
the Disney-ish lowering town 
hall, and the starkly contrast- 
ing. sombre Rodin memorial 
to the burghers of Cfclais. It is 
also worth visiting the Calais 
museum. 


In Boulogne the higher you 
climb the more richly you are 
rewarded, and it is quite a haul 
up to the Haute Ville where 
the cobbled streets within 13th 
century ramparts are peace- 
fully quiet out of season, and 
many of the buildings care- 
fully restored. 

Possibilities for further 
excursions by car include the 
faded, and largely shuttered in 
winter, resort of Le Touquet- 
Paris-Plage (14 miles), the 
fishing port of Etaples (IS) 
(shades of The Monocled

At 5.00pm on July 25th this year a new 
Peugeot 309 was wheeled out of the pits and 
onto the Motor Industry Research Association 
circuit in Warwicksliire. 

In terms of engineering, it was a standard 
production model. The only difference was that this 
Peugeot 309 was a diesel. 

At 5.30pm the flag dropped and the car set off. 

Over the next 24 hours this new Peugeot 309' 
Diesel was to travel over 2,334 miles, achieve 
speeds well in excess of lOOmph, establish no less 
than 27 national performance and endurance 


1986 WOULD RALLY CHAMPIONS 


records and set itself well apart from any other 
diesel in its class. 

But what was equally remarkable was not just 
what this 309 Diesel did, but the effortless way in 
which it did it. ‘ 

The new 1.9 litre diesel engine soaked up the 
distances as easily as it soaked up the records, 
not surprising for a car that is capable of travel- 
ling over 750 miles on a single tank. 

And all the drivers involved agreed that the 
levels of comfort, equipment and quietness made 
the 24 hour drive something less than gruelling.

So if you’d like to discover just one of the 
reasons why there’s never been a diesel like the 
new Peugeot 309, you won’t need 24 hours, you’ll 
just need a test drive. 

The reality is even better than the dream. '

^ acljvi, y - including 
™jPJ n ®- ^ no one, with the 
possible exception of Chaucer, has 
exer had an ironic dream. In fact it is 
much easier to say what irony is not. 

^oir 10111 ^ ‘ s 1,01 so fonny (or so 
intelligent) as a wit. He is less 
courageous than a satirist. He is 
generally less interesting thaw a 
dandy, and certainly wears uglier 
clothes: one imagines him in some- 
trnng brown but subdued, looking 
rather like a bank-clerk, since to stand 
out would be to forfeit his uniquely 
unassuming stance.’ For similar rea- 
sons he would be neither a vegetarian 
nor a carnivore; he would probably 
eat frozen foods. 

And this- invisibility, this general 
sense of being on the margin of the 
crowd, represents both the virtue and 
the weakness of irony: the salient fact, 
and one with which Mr Enright deals, 
is that it goes largely unnoticed. Swift 
was taken entirely seriously and so, 
with more fatal results, was Socrates. 
A journalist even went so far as to 
suggest that a special typeface be 
introduced for ironic remarks, so that 
the otherwise unsuspecting reader 
might be able to recognize them;' I 
recommend a Germanic script, with 
one or two Romance additions. 

So Mr Enright's account of irony is 
as welcome as it is necessary.- He 
begins with one tentative definition 
i of his subject, suggesting that irony 
Tcan represent "an admission - that 
there are times when we marmot be'- 
sure, not so much because -we don’t 


THE ALLURING 
PROBLEM 
An Essay in Irony 
By D J. Enright 
Oxford. £12.95 


know enough as because uncertainty 
is intrinsic, of the essence.'* This 
sounds like a definition of scepticism 
rather than of irony, however; since 
an ironist would, be provoked into 
such an admission only by someone 
who mus sure This is the soul of 
irony, it is essentially a reaction to 
something else; it has to be part of a 
dialogue, even if only a dialogue of 
the deaf, since it is impossible to be 
ironic in isolation.. Such an endlessly 
ironic person would be no more than 
a wraith, a horrible creature (no 
doubt, with a pipe in its mouth) 
floating out of the pages of Kierke- 
gaard and wearing a supercilious little 
grin on every conceivable occasion. 
Irony is a commodity that is always 
best in short supply. 

T he real problem is that it 
tends to issue from an in- 
concealed sense of superior- 
ity, sometimes even of 
smugness, and in some of the ironic 
anecdotes that Mr Enright includes in 
The Alluring Problem there is a touch 
of Schadenfreude among the no doubt 
more refined intellectual pleasures of 
this mode: as, for example; the story 
“of the ‘bora leader’, bossily instruct- 
ing others in where to put their feet, 
aim Ming into a ravine". Chi the 
tombstone of the' ironist should be 
jnscribed'thfc words: “I toULyou so.**: 

- But Enright’s book Is more. than a - 


collection of anecdotes: it is a 
disquisition on the nature of irony, 
and includes a panoramic survey 
from Socrates to Joseph Heller, with 
all stops in between, ft is a Micheiih 
guide to the tiny land-locked dictator- 
ship of Ironia, although, of course, 
without the stars — the ironist, of his 
nature, cannot be seen to excel at his 
role. There are no famous ironic 
remarks, either, unless the collected 
works of NoS Coward can claim the 
status of a remark. No one remem- 
bers irony, in other words; whereas 
everyone remembers wit Irony is 
functional and temporary: it is neces- 
sary to transcend irony in order to 
achieve anything of importance^ 

This of course makes Mr Enright’s 
task considerably more.difficult;-and 
although he provides very astute 
analyses of Shakespeare and Proust, 
among others, one does gelihe feeling 
that he is searching for needle pricks 
in a series of very large haystacks. In 
all such cases irony is introduced only 
as pan of a much more interesting 
design, and is really no more impor- 
tant than, for example, the use of the 
subjunctive by the same writers. Of 
course it is true that you can find 
irony anywhere if you choose to look 
for it, but so protean and irresolute a 
quality cannot be included among the 
more significant aspects of literary 
creation. 

Conventional wisdom might sug- 
gest otherwise, however, and in 
recent years a case has been made for 
Irony asa“modem" inode, as a way 
of.' confronting . the absurdity and 


meaninglessness that those with very 
short memories ascribe only to the 
Twentieth Century. 

K afka is always being 
wheeled out in this capaci- 
ty, as in so many others. But 
every period has its own 
form of irony, just as every age has its 
wits and its satirists. What has 
happened in recent years, however, is 
that irony has been treated with 
unironic seriousness by academic 
literary critics, who are always ready 
to buttonhole some new term that 
might help them to make sense of that 
messy entity known popularly as 
“literature". Mr Enright himself is 
not an academic in this sense at all, 
but he has been the beneficiary of a 
literary culture that uses terms like 
“irony" in the elaborately disputative 
manner of medieval theologians dis- 
cussing “grace” or “charity". 

Nevertheless An Alluring Problem 
is a well-wriuen and engaging book. It 
is a very English book, also, combin- 
ing anecdote and opinion, theory and 
illustration. It might, I suppose, be 
defined as itself an exercise in irony 
since it sets out to define the 
resolutely indefinable. In the end it 
confirms my opinion that I would not 
want to meet a dedicated ironist on a 
dark night, or at any other rime; but 
Mr Enright himself can be exempted 
from this stricture. He cannot be an 
ironist: an ironist would never write a 
book about irony unless, of course, it 
werfc one consisting entirely of blank 
pages.

count of a journey of 130 
nautical miles completed' in 
that time— twelve hours? 
twenty-fouf? — and tentative- 
ly suggested 10-12 knots as an 
average speed for the 170- 
oared warship. Indignant 
mathematicians, spluttering 
about innumerate classicists, 
waved computers, slide-rules, 
and envelopes, announced 
what utter child's play it was 
to calculate the maximum 
speed: and produced between 
them three totally different 
sets of results. Members of 
Rowing Gubs pointed out 
that 12 knots was very good 
going indeed for a racing eight 
in top condition. Winds, cur- 
rents, and length of oar-suoke 
were discussed. Quinquireme 
of Nineveh even made a brief 
appearance, from a correspon- 
dent in distant Wey bridge. 

Now, eleven years on, the 
vision of the classical scholar 
J.S. Morrison, himself a chief 
protagonist in the Great Cor- 
respondence, and of 
JJ\ Coates, a naval architect, 
has brought us dose to the 
point where some of these 
problems may actually be 
solved. It. is a disastrous 
prospect. What will there be 
left to write- to The Times 
about? Bui, for Morrison and 
Coates' and their. Trireme 
Trust, it will be a triumph. For 
under the magnificent spon- 
sorship of -the Hellenic Navy, 
the Trust's designs have just 
about been realized, and very 
shortly a trireme will take to 
the seas again. The Athenian 
Trireme, which recounts the 
history, and reconstruction of 
an ancient. Greek warship, 
makes - essential preparatory 
reading for this great occasion. 
Times readers can call -it the 
Book of the Correspondence. 

' ' J.S. Morrison starts with a 
detailed and commenably lu- 
cid account of the history of 
the trireme from its invention 
in the Seventh Century BC 
down to. the Fourth Century. 
He has changed his views on 
its speed since the Correspon- 
dence, reckoning now that 
Xenophon’s “long day" im- 
plied fifteen hours’ rowing, 
giving an average speed of 
c.8% knots, but that the 
normal speed would be less. 
Since triremes had positive 
buoyancy, and so did not sink 
when rammed, we have to rely 
orv art, architecture and -an- 
cient texts to supply the

evidence for . the 
reconstruction. 

It is astonishing what can be 
wrung from them. The ruins 
of a shipshed at Zea give us a 
trireme's maximum, dimen- 
sions (absolutely crucial evi- 
dence); a foundered 
merchantman gives us the 
technique of hull-construc- 
tion, confirmed by Homer’s 
account of the ship Odysseus 
built when -he was released 
from Calypso's dutches; a 
bronze ram has recently been 
recovered near Haifa, (though 
not a trireme’s,, .being too 
heavy); a striking simile from 
the myth of Er in Plato’s 
Republic tells us what a 
hypozoma was and did (ropes 
girdling the hufl-from bow to 
stem to reduce bending stress- 
es); and rarely can so many 
pots and reliefs have been so 
minutely examined. 

. . Bui probably the most excit- 
ing part of the book is 


J.F. Coates's chapter on the 
fundamentals of design and 
reconstruction. With the help 
of his own superbly detailed 
line-drawings (“a thranite 
oarsman's view” etc.), he 
takes us through the problems 
of hull-design, tenon size (ten- 
ons of attested size broke 
under strain, so the boat will 
depart from autbentidty on 
this point), choice of wood 
(Douglas Fir, for its resistance 
to decay), caulking, and then 
describes the actual process of 
construction, h is all highly 
technical, but a landlubber’s 
glossary is provided (I particu- 
larly liked “futtocks", a word 
rich in semantic possibilities). 
The only important issue left 
untouched is the ' issue of 
language. I do not see how a 
trireme can hope to function if 
the bos’n does not keep the 
time of the strokes with the 
loveliest words in the ancient 
Greek language — oh-op op, 
oh-op op. 

Both men sensibly refuse to 
predid anything in the way of 
what will happen when the 
completed boat is launched 
from Piraeus at . the end of the 
year and given its sea trials in 
spring or summer 1987. But 
the original contributors to the 
Great Trireme Correspon- 
dence should surely be there, 
possibly even' as crew-mem- 
bers, when the cries of “What 
did I tell you?" and the 
pleasing crash of jettisoned 
computers should do much to 
enliven what will be, in any 
case, a historic and jubilant 
scene. As for what should be 
built next, that's easy: another 
trireme. Then we can have 
ramming trials.

This is a terrific book. In the 
political jungle of Peru, “ob- 
jective information" is sheer 
fantasy; ’To report” means lo 
interpret reality according to 
one's fears and desires: and 
Peruvians "lie, invent, dream 
and take refuge in illusion." 
Because of this, says the 
narrator of The Real Life oj 
Alejandro Mayra, life, in a 
country where few people 
read.“has become literary". 
Most South American fiction 
seems weirdly surreal, exotic, 
“literary”, to British readers 
reared bn a blander diet, and 
this is part of the reason why. 

The novel is about one 
marginal, forgotten man, a 
failed 1950s revolutionary. 
You close the book knowing 
Mayta intimately, down to the 
dirt between his toes, as if you 
had shared a bed with him. 
You are also left with an 
unforgettable impression of 
the dungheap world of Lima's 
overcrowded slums and pris- 
ons, of the primitive and 
dehumanizing conditions of 

Indian villages, and of an 
atmosphere of suppressed vio- 
lence ready to explode. 

The narrator is writing a 
novel about Majaa: in a 
period of revolution and 
American intervention in the 
near future — like next 
month, or next year — he is 
collecting information and an- 
ecdotes from people who 
knew him: relatives, his ex- 
wife. and revolutionary col-

criminals, or senators, all with 
old scores to settle. The 

novelist’s account of these 

interviews is mixed up with 
the conversations and feelings 
from the past which be in- 
vents; the T of the story is 
sometimes the narrator and 
sometimes Mayta, even with- 
in the same paragraph. 

Vargas Llosa's triumph is to 
achieve something that is 
structurally and conceptually 
pretry complex, buz which 
reads as easily and urgently as 
a detective story. At its core is 
his creation, bit by bit, of the 


sort of person who becomes a 
revolutionary. An ardent 
Catholic as a child. Mayta 
turns to Marxism, and in his 
search for perfection allies 
himself with smaller and 
smaller splinter-groups. He 
ends up as one of seven 
Trotskyists who have quar- 
relled with everyone else, 
holding interminable meet- 
ings on points of doctnnc in a 
room above a garage, sitting 
on bales of old issues of their 
unsaleable revolutionary 
newsletter. This is a sad and a 
violent book: but it's also a 
funny one. 

At 40. an age when most 
militant revolutionaries 
“retire", Mayta meets an ex- 
citing young man who puts a 
gun into his hands. The idea of 
action, and the company o( 
gallant comrades (for Mayta is 
a romantic homosexual} give 
him new faith. In an absurd 
and tragic central episode, 
Mayta leads the revolution. 
But no one comes. The locals 
melt away, leaving the square 
empty. Support groups of 
workers and miners do not 
turn up. 

Bui Vaigas Llosa is not 
mocking Mayta. He is tender 
about aspiration and failure, 
just as he is tough — and 
horribly graphic — about the 
degradation of Pen's margin- 
al masses. This book cannot 
be used as propaganda for 
either Left or Right', and its 
“lies” convey more personal 
and political truths than most 
documentaries. 


A god in the computer 


Peculiarly contemporary 
American puriianism has al- 
ways underpinned Updike's 
obsession with coupling; and 
this late, brilliant novel is all 
the fiercer for openly taking 
theology on board. Updike 
does so through the conscious- 
ness of a sharp if mildly 
embittered scholar, with a 
specialist interest in the Latin 
writings of the Early Church. 

He is dogged by Dale, a 
plausibly urdikable computer 
buff with waxen skin and pale 
blue eyes, who pursues Roger 
with discoveries in astrono- 
my, doubts about Darwinism, 
and queries arising from those 
finely adjusted constants nec- 
essary for life to exist at att. 
We are easily led to share the 
loathing Roger feels for Dale's 
icy-eyed fervour, and can 
hardly believe it when his 
Effrontery is rewarded by a 
grant to enable him to prove 
the existence of God through 
the new technology of com- 
puter graphics. At the same 
time we register that Dale 
shows a compassion and re- 
sponsibility towards Roger’s 
half-niece Verna, stuck in 
poverty with an illeginiate, 
coloured baby, and herself a 
dangerously unreliable moth- 
er qualities that Roger, for an 
his comfortable common 
sense, markedly lacks. 

Both Roger and Dale are 
ultimately destroyed by the 
sexuality that has always been 
deadly to the Protestant ethos. 
For Roger his bleary niece 
Verna, with her slurred street 
speech and warm, musty, 
sluttish bedroom, becomes the 
itchy object ofhis desire. Dale, 
for his part, is transformed 
into little more than a marble 
phallus for the considerable

Updike as theologian 
erotic delight of Roger’s wife 
Esther. 

As the man with the fie: ter 
mission in life. Dale's collapse 
is more brutal. AH power ebbs 
from him; and he begins to 
look like a poor ghost of his 
former self Roger, foi his part, 
is implicated in a particularly 
nasty cover-up of Verna’s 
assault on her unloved child; 
but he is grounded too safely 
in the subtleties and quibbles 
of the Early Church to be as 
much at risk. 

Perhaps it is no accident 
that at his most depleted and 
inarticulate, Dale is faced with 
such a representative of an 
alien tradition called 
Kriegman, whose far greater 
knowledge of Planck and 


Higgs reduces Dale to a child 
commanded lo think while 
groping in helpless ignorance. 
Kricgman's confidence 
springs from recent evidence 
that life arose from crystal 
formations in clay that pro- 
vide the template and scaf- 
folding for life. We do not 
receive this information with 
relief; too many souls have 
been destroyed on the way 
through the novel. Updike's 
vision of American society, 
from the brutality of deprived 
housing estates to the desper- 
ate adulteries of the comfort- 
ably well-heeled, might well 
prompt anyone to echo 
Wilfred Owen, looking over 
another battlefield, and ques- 
tioning whether it was for this 
“the day grew tall”. 

Primo Levi’s work is reach- 
ing us out of sequence now, 
and these stories bear witness 
chiefly to his unquestioned 
integrity and modesty, as 
hard-hitting as Shalamov. 
The best stoiy concerns a 
pious Jew so insanely deter- 
mined to fast on the Day of 
Atonement in starvation 
camp conditions, that his 
bewildered guard is persuaded 
to put aside his ration of 
watery soup for the foUowing 
evening. Some such moment 
of unexpected reprieve how- 
ever brief links aU these 
records. Street-wise gypsies 
and mountain bandits survive 
best as innocence cannot. This 
is made most poignant in a 
story where a youngster, 
whom Levi has been trying to 
teach the rudiments of camp 
lore, rewards him with shy 
pride by a radish drawn from 
his pocket and the words, 
“I've leami. This is for you — 
it’s the fust thing I've stolen.”

THE TIMES 
DIARY 

Phibbs, or 
facts? 

Harry Phibbs, who made a name 
for himself by publishing a daira 
that Harold Macmillan was a war 
criminal, is back in action at 
Bournemouth. This morning he 
and his Federation of Conser- 
vative Students friends will be 
distributing spoof from pages of 
THeTimes. dated October 9, 1996. 
The stories include the release of 
the first murderer from a private 
prison; taxation “too high* 1 at 12 
percent; the sale oFGIasgowTown 
Hall following the privatization of 
local government: and Ken Liv- 
ingstone as Labour leader. An 
unrealistic exercise? Perhaps not; 
a similar PCS sheet IS years ago 
contained predictions which, at 
the time, seemed equally implau- 
sible: viz. a denationalized tele- 
phone service, the sale of the last 
council house, and Ronald 
Reagan as US president. 

All holds barred 

The Tory Reform Group has 
come up with a new formula for 
fringe meetings, which I am sure 
will find instant favour with 
politicians. Hitherto, it has been 
the practice for speakers to pre- 
pare a. speech and take tough 
questions from the floor, but at a 
lunchtime meeting yesterday, 
John Biffen was required merely 
to answer friendly questions from 
Charles Moore, editor of The 
Spectator. Thus he was able to 
eschew the danger of making 
controversial statements about 
Mrs Thatcher. His real views may 
be divined from his pleasure over 
the description of his career, 
quoted by Moore, that he has 
switched from “Enoch’s John the 
Baptist to Margaret’s Judas.” 

Fallout 

Do the Bournemouth police sus- 
pect foul play in the affair of Mrs 
Thatcher and the manhole cover? 
After her foil, security men broke 
tite seal on the manhole, lifted the 
cover, and carried out a thorough 
examination. It has now been re- 
sealed with bright yellow paint, 
making it less likely to trip the 
unwary. Not that Mrs. Thatcher 
often foils into that category. 

Party faithfUl 

The Prime Minister, in spite of her 
Methodist background, declined 
an invitation to a pre-conference 
service on Sunday at the Punson 
Memorial Methodist Church, op- 
posite the conference centre. But 
she has a daily chance to repent, 
and a daily reminder of the need 
fordoing so, in the form of a large 
banner on the church visible from 
the conference entrance, announc- 
ing morning prayers at 7.55. A 
relay of Methodist, Baptist and 
Anglican clergy has been or- 
ganized, with a Roman Catholic 
priest still being sought. The idea 
comes from a group of local 
businessmen, members of a 
predominantly American organ- 
ization called Successful Living. 
This year's Tory event is a trial 
run; next year they plan to set up 
the same prayer facility at all the 
party conferences.

Unesco: leave the door ajar 


Amadou Mahtar M'Bow has an- 
nounced that he does not intend to 
stand for a third term as Unesco's 
director general. As one who was 
involved in Britain's campaign to 
reform the organization, and then 
the derision to leave, I can only 
say that I hope no one persuades 
him to change his mind. Though 
neither the British nor the US 
government attacked him person- 
ally during the reform campaign, 
there can be no hope of a better 
Unesco without a better director 
general 

Not that M’Bow is a man 
without qualities; he has a certain 
charm of intelligence, and a touch 
of eloquence. But in his time there 
has bon a combination of erratic 
management — his long absences 
abroad were combined with a 
reluctance to delegate — an insid- 
ious. often Marxist infiltration of 
programmes and publications, 
made easier by their often nebu- 
lous nature; poor morale; financial 
extravagance; and a lack of prac- 
tical objectives. 

M'Bow may claim that the 
director general only carries out 
the wishes of the member states. 
But in Unesco. as in the other UN 
agencies, the director general has 
great operational powers. Reform 
has to start with him. 

In the spring of 1984 1 began our 
reform campaign with a letter to 
M'Bow setting out our concerns 
and objectives, including better 


Timothy Raison, until recently Minister for 
Overseas Development aignes that 
British withdrawal should not be irrevocable 


balanced and more effective pro- 
grammes. budgelary restraint, 
more efficient management and a 
curb on the kind of politicization 
which had been particularly 
worrying in the so-called New 
World Information and Commu- 
nications Order. At the end of 
1984 we gave a year's notice of 
withdrawal. 

Although the United States left 
the organization at the end of 
1984. over that year and the first 
half of 1985 the hard work by our 
team and various other member 
countries did bring some benefit 
The budget was controlled, some 
management weaknesses were 
tackled and the impending, loss of 
the large American financial 
contribution forced a more rig- 
orous look at actual operations, 
litis led to a shift, in emphasis 
towards the more practical pro- 
grammes in science and educa- 
tion. 

After further consideration al 
the end of 1985 British withdrawal 
was confirmed, though on balance 
1 would have preferred that we 
had stayed in. 1 felt that a 
momentum for reform had been 


established which it would be a 
pity to jeopardize. It was derided, 
however, that we simply had not 
made enough progress to justify 
remaining. 

Our departure was greatly eased 
by the decision that the £6 million 
or so raved by it was not to be re- 
couped by the Treasury but to be 
spent on a well-judged programme 
of scholarships and scientific and 
cultural activities. 

But what now? There can be no 
question of Britain returning to 
Unesco unless we are sure that the 
post of director general is held by 
the right man. Though we 
have no say in his appointment, 
some members may feel it is worth 
choosing someone who might 
attract Britain and America bade. 
The post should not be seen as 
necessarily a Third World pre- 
serve — anyone from the Arctic to 
the Antipodes should be eligible. 
But as with other UN posts a fixed 
limit of tenure should be in- 
troduced: 10 years should be the 
most for any one holder. M'Bow 
has already had 12. 

There is a good reason why 
Britain should consider returning 


to Unesco. The organization, at 
present slack, yet autocratically 
run, would gain by a movement 
for reform; and the world can gain 
from its aims of tying together and 
promoting scientific, educational 
and cultural activities. The im- 
mediate gain would be greater in 
Third World than in developed 
countries. It is they who most need 
aid with literacy campaigns, with 
succour for museums and antiq- 
uities. with international scientific 
free trade. Unesco is not uniquely 
able to deal with most of these 
things — there are other ways of 
giving help — but its central po- 
sition can be very valuable. 

But the advanced countries too 
can benefit from scientific and 
cultural co-operation; not just by 
agreeable seminars in Ibira or a 
chance to add to the world's paper 
mountains, but by programmes 
altogether more direct and useful. 

We badly need universal recog- 
nition that working for the United 
Nations is not just about taking 
part m the good life in a great city. 
The United States and ourselves 
should be able to do as much as 
anyone to get that over. Unesco is 
not a bad place to start. 

It vrill lake time. M'Bow has 
another year to serve. A successor 
will oeed time to make his mark. It 
may not be until the general 
conference of 1 989 that we can see 
if Unesco is really determined to 
reform. If it is, we should be there. 


Michael Binyon sets the scene for the weekend talks in Reykjavik 


Washington 

No longer is President Reagan in 
nervous awe of the smart new man 
in the Kremlin. He thinks he 
knows how to handle him and. as 
the Reykjavik encounter nears, he 
knows what he wants and holds 
most of the strong cards. 

At the very start of the tortuous 
negotiations to free Nicholas 
DanilofL Reagan derided he had 
little to lose and much to gain by 
meeting Gorbachov at short no- 
tice. With mid-term elections 
approaching, he could press the 
Russians on human rights, 
Afghanistan and other vote-win- 
ning issues; he could reinforce 
American standing with the ever- 
nervous Nato allies: and be had a 
real chance to clinch a deal on 
intermediate range nuclear weap- 
ons and sketch out a framework 
for agreement later for big cuts in 
strategic arms. 

But there are risks. Reagan may 
be confident in his ability to talk 
frankly but firmly with Gor- 
bachov at their second meeting in 
less than a year, but many of bis 
key supporters are not They arc 
convinced that the great conser- 
vative champion has gone soft on 
communism: that in his anxiety to 
establish a place in history as the 
man who brought home the first 
real agreement to cut nuclear 
stockpiles, he will go the way of 
detente-minded Republicans such 
as Ford and Nixon and do a deal 
with the Russians that is against 
America’s interests. To the 
Republican right, any agreement 
that cuts US military strength or 
plays down the communist threat 
smacks of capitulation. 

“It will be a cold day in Hades 
when I go soft on communism.” 
Reagan defiantly declares. He 
knows that the conservatives, 
though commanding sympathy m 
the Pentagon, have nowhere else 
to go. The obdurate Defence 
Secretary, Caspar Weinberger, 
sent on a visit to China, has wisely 
kept his scepticism to himself 
Reagan's political standing is high 
enough for him to pay no more 
than lip service to the right-wing 
objections. But he does see an- 
other danger that many Ameri- 
cans. and Europeans, may hope 
for too much from the meeting. 
Nothing is to be signed, he insists. 
This is not a proper summit, only 
a useful preparatory talk, “a base 
camp before the summit.” 

The real summit here in Wash- 
ington is what counts, and Reagan 
has staked his prestige on holding 
Gorbachov to it He is therefore 
fighting any Soviet attempt to 
upgrade the Reykjavik meeting. 
Raisa Gorbachov is going to 
Iceland: Nancy Reagan, usually 
inseparable from her husband, is 
staying at home. 

However, the two days of talks 
may accomplish more in the 
modification of positions than 
either the Geneva summit or its 
promised follow-up. Reagan, 
wanting progress on arms control, 
regional conflicts, bilateral rela- 
tions and human rights, is resist- 
ing Soviet attempts to turn this - 
into a single-issue arms control 
session, dwelling exclusively on 
those areas in which Gorbachov 
would find a ready response in 
western Europe: medium-range 
missiles and a nuclear test ban. At 
his White House meeting with the 



Pleasing view 
from Reagan’s 
base camp 


freed Soviet dissident. Yuri Orlov, 
Reagan insisted that without a real 
improvement in the Soviet human 
rights record there could be no 
lasting progress on other issues. 

Bul willy-nilly, it is an arms 
control summit, and here the US 
side has definite views on what it 
wants and thinks achievable. In 
the most promising area, inter- 
mediate-range nuclear forces, only 
four questions remain unresolved: 
the Soviet missiles in Asia, the 
length of any interim agreement, 
effective verification of the 
destruction of the cruise, Per- 
shing-2 and SS-20 missiles, and 
the ftiture of shorter range Soviet 
missiles now deployed in East 
Germany and Czechoslovakia. 
Both sides want an interim agree- 
ment: Europe would be delighted. 

Reagan will hold out for proper 
verification, including on-site 
inspections, and will resist any 
Soviet offer to chose between cuts 
in the Asian SS-20s and cuts in the 
short-range missile force in East- 
ern Europe — effectively an 
invidious choice for the US be- 
tween its European allies and 
Japan. 

On strategic arms and space- 
defence weapons. Reagan will 
continue to press for deep cuts in 
Soviet long-range nuclear weap- 
ons. But here he might offer 
Gorbachov a concession: accep- 
tance of a 30 per cent cut. as 
proposed by Soviet negotiators in 
Geneva in June, instead of the 50 
per cent agreed at the last summit. 
Reagan has two good reasons for 
such a concession: most US 
experts agree that Gorbachov will 
probably face insuperable oppo- 


sition from the Soviet military 
establishment fora 50 per cent cut 
and, secondly. Reagan could use 
the concession to force the Rus- 
sians to compromise on Star 
Wars. 

Reagan knows that Gorbachov 
will press him hard to join in the 
Soviet nudear test moratorium. 
Here too he will stand firm. The 
US is now saying publidy that 
despite pious aspirations, as long 
as the world depends on nudear 
deterrence, nuclear weapons have 
to be tested. Nevertheless, some 
common midway point could be 
found, such as a US commitment 
to reduce the number of tests, with 
the declared aim of working 
towards an eventual ban. That 
might give Gorbachov something 
sufficiently concrete to show bis 
critics at home — which Reagan 
believes an important consid- 
eration - while helping the US in 
world opinion. Finally, the US 
may be able to nudge Gorbachov 
towards an agreement on the non- 
proliferation of chemical weap- 
ons. 

All this would leave little time 
in the three negotiating sessions 
for the other issues Reagan wants 
to emphasize. On human rights, 
he may extract little more than a 
verbal assurance that things will 
be eased for some would-be 
emigrants. On bilateral issues, the 
one pressing question is die 
expulsion of the 25 members of 
the Soviet UN mission, especially 
the 1 1 still in New York thought to 
be the senior KGB operatives. 
Having made so much fuss about 
them in the first place; Reagan is 
unlikely to back down. 


But on one issue there may be 
more lively discussion: Afghani- 
stan. Eduard Shevardnadze, the 
Soviet foreign minister, hinted as 
much last week. To Washington, 
aQ depends on bow serious the 
Russians are about withdrawal 
and whether they are prepared to 
risk the collapse of a puppet 
regime in Kabul The makings ofa 
settlement have already been 
negotiated through the United 
Nations, and the US has offered to 
guarantee the terms. Reagan, in 
turn, expects to be pressed on 
Nicaragua, but will resist any 
equating of the two. Washington 
has already detected a more 
pliable Soviet attitude to other 
regional conflicts, such as the 
Middle East . 

Reagan will bargain tough ly on 
all these issues. He is convinced 
that Gorbachov is under pressure 
to achieve results that would lead 
to better relations but would not 
be considered dangerous con- 
cessions back in Moscow. Indeed, 
one reason for Reagan's con- 
fidence is his belief that over the 
past year things have moved his 
way. Since the last summit, 
Gorbachov's international stand- 
ing has been severely damaged by 
Chernobyl (and now the sinking of 
the Soviet nuclear submarine); the 
economic dimate has worsened 
for the Soviet Union, and 
hardliners have managed to hold 
up reforms at home. Reagan, by 
contrast, has had a relatively good 
year — even including Libya — 
and is under little domestic 
pressure. 

if little comes of the meeting, 
conservatives will be reassured. If 
there are frameworks for agree- 
ment, the European allies wzil be 
pleased. And already there is some 
cause for optimism, for when 
Gorbachov touches down at 
Reykjavik he will have made a 
symbolic concession by being the 
first Soviet leader to land at a Nato ' 
base for a summit meeting. In 
prospect, it seems that acceptance 
of Gorbachov's invitation at the 
darkest moment of the Daniioff 
affair was a shrewd political 
gamble. 


Whiff of battle brings a new euphoria 


After a period of fractious, trou- 
bled sleep the Tory party has 
shaken itself awake and emerged 
blinking into the Bournemouth 
sunlight to discover that its con- 
fidence is still intact 

Norman Tebbit was relaxed 
enough to wield the stiletto rather 
than the bludgeon on the Labour 
Party in his speech. But the new 
mood is wafting up from the floor 
as well. Westland. Land Rover 
and their associated disasters have 
been allowed to drift into the 
background. To their own sur- 
prise, the Tories find themselves 
ready for battle after all. 

If the Conservative Party is 
about anything it is about winning 
elections. So something of the 
change in mood is explained by 
the growing election atmosphere. 
At every fringe meeting or recep- 
tion there is real relish at the 
thought of going into an election 
against a Labour Party committed 
to unilateralism and the closure of 
American bases. One Tory activist 
after another tells you: “The 
British voter will not support a 
party which wants to strip away 


this country's nuclear defences”. 

The disarray of the Alliance on 
the same issue has delighted them 
too. Probably much too soon, the 
Tories are writing off the Alliance: 
they feel much more comfortable 
fighting the old enemy. 

The conference is an important 
element in Tory morale. From the 
last three conferences delegates 
have gone home shaken and 
unsettled, one soured by Miss Sara 
Keays. another wrecked by the 
IRA. Now calm has returned. This 
time they have been able to 
unpack their suitcases and take 
their second bath of the day en 
route to the area cocktail party in 
an atmosphere of normality. 

Conservative confidence has 
been revived by the realization of 
how many arguments they have 
won. how much that is irreversible 
has been achieved. No Labour 
government now could take back 
the million council homes sold to 
their tenants, nor will they try. 
Lumbered though it is with spend- 
ing promises. Labour has pledged 
not to set off a new inflationary 
spiral, ft has been obliged to take 


aboard Tory reforms giving trades 
unions back to their members; 
nationalization has become, in the 
words of Tory MP Norman 
Lamont. “the policy that dare not 
speak its name”. 

Tories who three months ago 
were twitching about the opinion 
polls are now reminding one 
another of what a mountain 
Labour bas to climb to gain the 
1 16 seats it needs for victory. 

But the really significant factor 
about Bournemouth 1986 is that 
the Tory Party's internal debates 
are over, for the moment at least. 
The wets are no longer rocking the 
boat One decidedly moist min- 
. ister told me: “We have to say to 
people like Francis Pym, Jim Prior 
and Peter Walker, ‘Sorry, there's a 
new train leaving the station and 
we’re aboard*. And we don’t 
expea them to tell us that we have 
sold out”. 

The agitation over whether Mrs 
Thatcher needs a balanced ticket 
is over. She has given frontline 
jobs to Kenneth Baker. Kenneth 
Clarke and Malcolm Rifkind. And 
in the way they operate those jobs 


they epitomize the new style. The 
wet sympathies remain over the 
dinner table, but behind the 
departmental desk the emphasis is 
on practical achievement The 
debate over whether there should 
be lax cuts or more spending on 
schools and hospitals is con- 
cluded. There will be some of 
each. 

In the shadow of the election the 
Tory party is coming together. The 
Kenneth Bakers of this world are 
listening to the radicals and 
welcoming their ideas, not reject- 
ing them out of hand as the 
thoughts of mad ideologues. For 
their part the radicals are accept- 
ing that they cannot have every- 
thing at once and that their ideas 
have to be allowed time to work 
through if the voters are not to be 
frightened on the way. 

The motto over the platform 
this week reads: “The Next Move 
Forward”. If it ran to a sub-title it 
should surely be: “We are all 
consolidators now”.

Measuring lip 
to 

Labour has launched a foUlgjJ 
operation against the Tones, with 
an argument going like this: Mrs 
Thatcher has broken the old 
consensus based on a mixefl 
economy, a mutually cooperaO"* 
society, and a high ogJJ 1 
public service and 
stead, she has introduced compel 
itiveness. discord, and a preF 
erence for the successful at the 
expense of concern for the needv. 

She prefers cutting the taxes of the 
rich to maintaining the standard 
of the public services on which the 
majority depends. Labour, how- 
ever. will return to the old path of 
moderation: it will make good the 
inadequate standards of foe essen- 
tia! public welfare services as well 
as tackling unemployment much 
more vigorously. . 

Now it is not true, to start with, 
that Mrs Thatcher broke the 
consensus. It was cracked when 
the unions made nonsense of 
Harold Wilson’s experiment in 
social democracy, with its plan- 
ning for growth and for stable 
prices and incomes, which was in 
many ways the high water mark of 
the mixed-economy consensus. It 
was broken into pieces when die 
unions destroyed the Heath gov- 
ernment and the pieces were 
ground beyond repair when the 
Labour Party fell into the bands of 
extremists between 1970 and 
1979- The winter of discontent 
which broke the CaHaghan gov- 
ernment was the final evidence 
that it was the left which bad .. 
destroyed foe consensus. 

What Mrs Thatcher did was to 
abandon foe pretence that the old 
consensus mould could be fitted 
together again. Instead she began 
the attempt to build a new 
consensus based on popular 
capitalism, freedom, and personal 
responsibitiy. in the belief that in 
foe long run it would bring better 
living standards for alL Much has 
been achieved, but foe Tories 
must now turn to what they still 
have to do instead of inviting 
gratitude for what has been done. 

The need now is to confront the 
new social difficulties which have 
been foe by-products of economic 
reform, namely unemployment 
and how to restore the standards ' 
of the public services without 
returning to inflation. 

Labour's claim to offer a new 
democratic socialist mould should 
be considered in the light of the 
recent radio interview with John 
Smith, its industry spokesman. 

Asked if there was no escape from 
alternative bouts of denationaliza- 
tion and renationaJization. he 
replied that previous Conser- 
vative governments had been 
willing to leave undisturbed what 
their Labour predecessors had 
nationalized. Mrs Thatcher had 
done foe opposite; therefore she 
had broken foe consensus. Lab- 
our's gospel then, is that consen- 
sus means a system in which the 
nation’s political structure is 
edged bit by bit but remorselessly 
leftwards, with foe Tories doing 
nothing to check it 

In Blackpool last week, Willy 
Brandt of foe German SPD de- 
scribed Conservatism as a gross 


charade whose weakness isfo~ 

“its champions promise to . 
majority what only a minority wig

How inefficient 
are you? 




PROl 


I was looking at some Christinas 
crackers in a shop the other day, 
trying to remember which makes 
in the past had proved successful 
and which disastrous. It occurred 
to me, not for the first time, that it 
would be the height of efficiency to 
make a note of such things at the 
time and refer to it next year. The 
depth of inefficiency would be to 
do whai 1 da and keep a spare box 
of crackers so old that none of 
them detonates and all the jokes 
fail to go off. 

Inefficiency is a very personal 
thing, of course, but 1 have now 
come up with a primitive version 
of a scale of efficiency a gainst 
which we can all measure our- 
selves. As far as I can see, people 
fall into one of three categories; 
the super-efficient, the inefficient 
and the super-inefficient. For 
instance, in the matter of video 
recordings, the super-efficient per- 
son buys bis own copy of Cone 
With The Wind, the ordinarily 
inefficient tapes it off the TV and 
mislays it. while the super-in- 
efficient hires it from the video 
library and records Wogan over it 
by mistake. 

If you recognize yourself in any 
of those guises, then try foe 
following recognition tests. 

• In the bathroom. If you are 
super-efficient, you never run out 
of toothpaste If you are merely 
inefficient you have four tooth- 
paste tubes, all squeezed flat. If 
you are super-inefficient you go to 
the bajftroom to brush your teeth 
and only remember when you get 
back that you bad set out to spend 
a penny, not brush your teeth. 

• In foe garden. The super- ■ 
efficient gardener always contrives 
to have the garden looking its best 
foe inefficient says “It's a mess 
now. but you should have seen it 
three weeks ago”: the super- 
inefficient never notices foe 
garden until it starts coming into 
the house. 

• Appointments. Super-effic- 
iency. arriving early- Inefficiency: 
leaving home at the time you are 
due to arrive. Super-inefficiency: • 
what appointment? 

• Diary entries. The super-ef- 
ficient person does not have a 
diary but a Filofax (if antiquarian 
by bent) or tiny computer (if 
modernistic). The ordinary in- 




-.u. - 


efficient person has a diary a ; J 7 '- 
home and a diary at work, each • 
containing only half bis appoint- * >- 
meats. The super-ineffiaent per- ; 
son knows he will lose his j ' 
before the year is out, so wdl nr 2 
advance he bays a mid-year diary , ^ 
(starting July), and loses that toa^ . 

• At foe garage. The super- -/ r 
effirient person carefully takes foe. - - . 
right amount of petrol so foal the 

bUl comes to an exact number or ’ •' 
pounds, with no pence. The ^ * y 
_ inefficient person leaves his petrol 
cap at the filling-station. The ;=-£'■ 
super-inefficient pereon waflcs oC *5 .;

service over the next year. But 
in responding reasonably to 
criticism, the Tories have at 
least taken the edge off any 
attack Labour might launch on 
them. 

On the defence of the realm, 
the Tory debate suffered 
mainly from the tedium of 
hearing people loudly agreeing 
with each other. How long it 
will remain so is debatable, 
given the stresses and strains 
upon resources in the next few 
years. But the feet that things 
are still in place this year is not 
the least of the debts which 
Mrs. Thatcher -owes to Mr. 
Neil Kinnock. 

So Mr George Younger, the 
Defence Secretary, rose to 
address the party conference • 
for the first time as Defence 
^Secretary yesterday; assured of 


grammes, reductions in wait- 
ing- lists and increases in 
medical staff, patients treated 
and total' health spending-. 

Mr Fowler won a genuinely 
spontaiueous standing ovation 
from the Tory representatives, 
but the general public has been 
resistant 10 this line of argu- 
ment up to now. To a degree 
this is unfair. The Govern- 
ment has been the victim of a 
redefinition of “increased 


’ would be listening If defence 
is ever to be an issue at a 


allied resource and Britain’s 
capacity for out-of-area inter- 
vention? In 1981 his prede- 
cessor Mr John Non decided 
on the latter alternative and 
was in grave danger of divid- 
ing his party, until the Falk- 
lands War overturned it all. 
Mr. Younger may have to look 
once more at the defence 
research industry' in this coun- 
try in an attempt to avoid 
making hard choices between 
the services. 

For the time being he is 
relatively safe. This is partly 
because the situation has not 
yet gone critical But it is also 
partly because Labour has 
diverted everyone's minds 
from the detailed decisions 
and turned them towards the 
more fundamental issues . 
touching upon defence of the 
realm. 

If Labour were to be de- 
feated in an election fought 
largely on the issue of nuclear 
defence — and by their dif- 
ferent conference tactics both 
Tories and Labour have made 
that a real possibility — it 
would be the thud such defeat 
since 1 964. A policy of nuclear 
defence based on Nato and the 
British independent deterrent 
would begin to seem as perma- 
nent a part of the political 
consensus as the health service 


general elevtion, then then ext 1 now does. Britain might then

But with Government de-

now. 


PROCESSION TO PEKING 


On Saturday the Queen sets 
out for Peking on the first visit 
10 China by a reigning British 
monarch. Her week-long tour 
promises to be as picturesque 
as it is symbolic a pageant of 
contrasting sights and sounds 
which will set the seal on the 
Sino-Brilisb agreement on 
Hong Kong, 

Onlv five years ago such a 
visit would have been in- 
conceivable. Britain’s imperial ■ 
past with its legacy of eco- 
nomic involvement m South 
China, had made our country a 
byword for foreign interfer- 
ence in China even before the 
communist takeover in 1949. 
This legacy has been a per- 
ipetual handicap m our rela- 
tions with the People s 
Republic of China ever since. 

- Now two generations 01 
Chinese have grown up being 
aught that England was chief 
,mons those who plundered 
"hina’s wealth and reduced 
ier to the status of a semi- 
olotiy. They have fern taught

land's head of state and_ 


Communist Party leader. Gen- 
eral Jaruzelski — the first 
orthodox East European com- 
munist leader to visit China 
since the Soviet Union broke 
with China more than 25 years 
.ago. And the Queen will be. 
followed to China by the East 
German party leader, Erich 
Hohecker, Who makes his first 
- visit to China later this month. 

For the Chinese leadership, 
this diplomatic flexibility is 
part of a relatively new, but 
nonetheless coherent policy of 
maintaining a balance in rela- 
tions between East and West 
and being beholden to neither. 
This month’s succession of 
visitors to Peking maintains 
fiiis balance. 

China's first flush of enthu- 
siasm for the United States has 
given way to a realistic accep- 
tance of what can and cannot 
be changed in US-Chinese 
relations — on both sides. Mr 
Weinberger has this week im- 
pressed on the Chinese the 
view that the partial Soviet 
withdrawal from Afghanistan 
promised for this autumn is a ■ 
deception. The Chinese, who 
find the Soviet military pres- 
ence in Afghanistan as un- 
acceptable as the West doesv 
will no doubt take. note of this 
view. But they have also 
welcomed the symbolic value 
of the Soviet gesture, which 
was directed by Moscow as 
much towards Peking as to- 
wards the West 

■ The East European visitors 
will likewise have their points 
to make to the Chinese leaders. 
.They may offer advantageous 
trade terms, which China — 
lumbered with obsolete Soviet 
plant from the honeymoon 
period of Sino-Soviet relations 
— will probably welcome. The 
East Europeans for their part 
will welcome the added dip- 
lomatic outlet that improved 
relations with Peking afford^ 
Following Moscow into the 
Sino-Soviet dispute restricted 
Poland and East Germany in 
their relations with the ^ar 


East and pushed them into the 
role of aid-givers to Vietnam, a 
role which is probably not 
entirely to their liking. 

It is a sign of changing times 
. that Chinese leaders are pre- 
pared to entertain leaders from 
so disparate a group of coun- 
tries in such rapid sequence. 
But it is equally significant that 
countries of such divergent 
orientations should show so 
serious an interest in im- 
proved relations with China. 
This represents a success for 
China’s policy of judging each 
country separately, on its own- 
merits, regardless of its bloc 
allegiance — China's version of 
“differentiation”. But it also 
means that China is not alone 
in seeing iis future as part of a 
wider world. The wider world 
sees China's future in a similar 
light 

The Queen’s coming visit to 
China is almost entirely 
ceremonial and - symbolic; 
more so than those other visits 
being made to Peking this 
month; considerably more so 
than the prime minister’s visit 
to China two yearsagp. But the 
importance of ceremonial and 
symbolism even in ! today's 
more materialistic and prosaic 
Chioa should not be underesti- 
mated. 

When the Queen sails down 
the Pearl River from Canton 
to Hong Kong in the Royal 
Yacht Britannia, she win be 
laying the ghosts of the gun- 
boats that sailed up river more 
than a century ago to punish 
the Chinese for trying to hit 
the illicit opium trade. And 
those Chinese who turn out to 
see her — there may be more 
than imagines - will 
be helping to dismantle a 
whole edifice of received 
. untruths about the historical 
relationship between Britain 
and China. If even some of 
those myths are buried, then it 
is not only the people of 
Britain and China who will 
benefit but it is to be hoped, 
.the people of Hong Kong as 
well. ■ 


Front the President of the Royal 
Institution of Chartered Surveyors 
Sir. Your 'interesting series of 
articles on ihe house price boom 
(Seipembcr 29. 30. October 1) is 
entirely right in one respect, but 
quite wrong in another. 

It is right 10 drew attention 10 
the plight of first-time buyers, who 
often have to borrow more than 
they can comfortably afford to 
repay in order to gel a foot on the 
bottom of the bousing ladder. To 
the extent that the building soci- 
eties and other agencies some- 
times encourage an unwise level of 
indebtedness they are not really 
doing the borrower a good turn. 

But it is wrong 10 suppose that 
ihe house price boom can be cured 
simply by tightening up on mort- 
gage lending. 

The*price of houses, like that of 
anything else which can be bought 
and sold, is determined by supply 
and demand. House prices out- 
strip inflation only when lhe 
effective demand exceeds the sup- 
ply. 

The effective demand for 
houses is certainly affected by the 
lending policies of the building 
societies and banks. But they are 
not the only factor. And easy 
credit only pushes up prices where 
there are not enough houses or 
flats to meet the demand which is 
created. 

The only long-term solution to 
spiralling bouse prices is to in- 
crease the number of houses and 
flats available. Britain badly needs 
more houses — at least a million 
more — to cater for the growth in 
the number of households, to 
replace unfit housing and to 
provide a margin of empty hous- 
ing awaiting reoccupation or dis- 
posal. 

Building more housing, for rent 
as well as for sale, needs a much, 
more comprehensive overhaul of 
housing policies than has so far 
been suggested in The Times. Both 
the recent RICS report. Housing — 
the Next Decade, and the report of 
lhe Duke of Edinburgh’s inquiry 
into British housing have sug- 
gested how it could be achieved, \ 
and at the same time how to bring 
some logic and fairness to the 
jumble of subsidies, tax relief, rent 
controls and other measures by 
which housing in this country is 
governed. 

Both reports should be com- 
pulsory reading for everyone who 

Nuclear deterrence 

1 From Sir Clive Rose - 
..Sir. No responsible person win 
I disagree with Monsignor Bruce 
: Kent (October 6) in his detestation 
of nuclear weapons and his fear of 
the consequences of their use. This • 
is why it is essential to do 
everything possible to prevent it 
' There should be no doubt about 
the sincerity of President Reagan 
and Mr Gorbachov when they 
jointly declared in Geneva last 
November that “a nuclear war 
cannot be won and must never be 
fought”. 

Nato governments of all politi- 
cal persuasions, their ministries of 
defence and their chiefs of staff 
have, for more than 30 years, 
endorsed the doctrine of deter- 
rence as the best way of achieving 
this. Monsignor Kent has had to 
resort to the well-worn device of ' 
selective quotation in his attempt 
to justify his criticism of the 
doctrine. 

What Lord Carrington actually 
said last December was: 

The Alliance relies on nuclear 
weapons — and very largely on 
American nuclear weapons — to do 
■ three things: to deter the use of force 
against us. whether it be nuclear or 
conventional: to provide credible 
retaliatory capabilities if deterrence 
fails and we are attacked: and to give 
us an effective counter to nuclear 
blackmail rn a world where nuclear 
weapons exist and cannot be 
disinvented. 

■ Nuclear weapons deter because 
of the possibility of their use, and 
by no other means. If deterrence 
failed and Nato was in danger of 

Post haste 

From Mr A. A. K. Whiiehouse 
Sir, Your correspondents today 
(October 1) expea that the postal 
service will improve, but can < 
modern tehnology and ■ 
organisation ever give us the 
service which prevailed early in 
the century? . I 

in the first decade of this < 
century, whilst walking high on 
the Lake District mountains, my , 
father broke his spectacles. In the 
late afternoon he reached the post 
office of the village where he was 
staying. He sent off a telegram 10 
his optician in London. When he 
came down to breakfast next 
morning new spectacles were 
awaitinghim. 

This seems unbelievable today, 
but then the optician, working 
long hours, looked up the prescrip- . 
lion, assembled some new speo- , 
lades, seni his boy round to . 
Euston and put them on the night <

From Mr K. B. Sutton 
Sir. There used to be something 
called supply and demand. Now. 
according to your Spectrum article 
of September 29, there seems to be 
something called lax lending and 
irresponsible borrowers. 

The tone of your aitide and 
indeed the quotation from Sir 
Gordon Borne perpetuates the 
view that it is entirely the fault of 
institutions, mongage brokers and 
estate agents when people find 
they have a problem paying for 
their mortgage. 

As a mortgage broker we find 
the opposite to be true. A large 
number of enquiries are received 
by us which never proceed to 
mortgage application because the 
potential borrower is shopping 
around for the maximum loan at 
the cheapest rale with the largest 
multiple of income they can find. 
People who are doing that have a 
great deal of time to think about it 
and to consider the costs. 

House buyers should not need 
protecting from the consequences 
of their own actions. They must 
know what they can afford. If a 
mortgage is going to cost them too 
much money there is one simple 
word in the language 10 help them 
out of the problem - “No”! 

We certainly do not advocate 
irresponsible borrowing and 
excessively high multiples or 
percentages of value. But provided 
a mortgage and its costs are fully 
explained, who are we to say to, 
our clients “No. we are not willing 
to put you in touch with such and 
such an institution who can give 
you what you want” 

It takes two sides to make a 
bargain. It is utterly ludicrous to 
suggest that it is the fault of the 
institutions, who should expea to 
“face the prospect of Government 
regulations” if they do not stop 
offering the public what they want. 
.Most people know what they 
can afford. Do allow them the 
freedom to choose. This is cer- 
tainly a case where “Nanny does 
not know best”. 

Yours faithfully.

defeat, the Alliance would have 
the awesome task of deciding 
whether to retaliate with nuclear 
weapons.. 

There is nothing automatic 
about this decision. Assessing the 
risk of escalation would be a 
crucial factor. The view that 
escalation would be inevitable, 
however eminent the authority to 
which it is attributed, is based 
purely on subjective judgement, 
not tested by any experience. The 
probability will never be zero, but 
it can certainly not be assumed to 
be 100 percent. 

Of course any degree of risk is 
profoundly disturbing, and God 
forbid therefore that the need for 
such a decision should ever arise. 

If it did. the fervent hope must be 
that statesmen on both sides 
would draw back from the abyss. 
But nothing would be better 
calculated to reduce the credibility 
of deterrence than for Nato to 
forswear in all circumstances the 
option to use nuclear weapons, 
and, if necessary, to use them first 
Lord Mountbatten did not 
make this mistake. He argued that 
We are most likely to preserve peace 
if there is a military balance between 
East and West The real need is for 
both sides 10 replace the attempts to 
maintain a balance through ever- 
increasing and ever more costly 
n ud ear armaments by a balance 
based on mutual restraint 
This is what the negotiations in 
Geneva and next week’s summit 
in Reykjavik are all about.

Troops in A^hamstan 

From Mr Andrew Carnegie 
Sir, Your front page headline 
“Afghan withdrawal begins ‘in few 
days’ ” (later editions. Oaober 3) 
would delight the Afghan KGB 
and their brothers in Moscow. 

It gives just the impression the 
Soviets utish to create of a steady 
de-escalation in Afghanistan, 
timely of course with the UN 
Assembly. 

Returning as I just have from 
Afghanistan and neighbouring 
Pakistan. I can say that it is no 
secret that the troops. being with- 
drawn are Soviet anti-aircraft 
divisions, and as the Mujahedeen ■ 
are about as faraway from having 
an air force as they ever were, it 
makes such a withdrawal totally 
meaningless. 

Unless, of course, reputable 
western newspapers represent it as 
a genuine gesture at a time when 
Soviet policy is in feet one of 
violent escalation against the civil- 
ian population. 

Yours faithfully.

Speaking up on 
pupils’ behalf 

From Mr Paul Farmer 
Sir. As head of a Brixton com- 
prehensive school I take exception 
10 the assertion by Amanda Atfaa 
and Sarah Drummond (Spectrum. 
October 6) that “State school 
pupils are sloppy, spotty and 
louche” . It i$ a breath takingly 
unfairand unkind assault, both on 
children in general and on the 
State system of education, only 
further reinforced by the corollary 
of the preceding statement, “In 
private schools, manners are good 
and the pupils are dean and 
polite”. 

Tbe vast majority of pupils at 
my school dress wdl: some of 
them dress very well. Their man- 
ners can be and usually are good, 
and they enjoy showing off them- 
selves and their school to visitors. 
They may be very occasionally 
spotty (are private schoolchildren 
immune to this teenage problem?) 
but invariably they are dean. 

Far from being touche, their 
openness, straightforwardness and 
sense of fairness can be quiie 
disarming. And all this is achieved 
in spite of their lack of privilege 
(65 per cent are on free meals) and 
as a result of the expectations of 
decent parents and conscientious 
teachers. 

At a time when parents of 
primary schoolchildren are 
considering their choices of 
secondary schools it is unfortu- 
nate the The Times should sup- 
port so-called research which 
contains provocative and mislead- 
ing statements. The real state of 
secondary schools is readily avail- 
able for all to see. 

As far as Dick Sheppard School 
is concerned we welcome visitors 
any Monday morning (polite, 
clean and well dressed pupils will 
receive you in the foyer), and 
whilst we cannot guarantee perfec- 
tion. like most secondary schools 
we have little to hide and a lot to 
offer. 

Yours faithfullv.

Student loans 

From Mr K. J. Blois 
Sir. The current discussion of 
student loans appears to ignore the 
problems which will be con- 
fronted by students who are 
physically handicapped. 

Their number is slowly increas- 
ing. ' as a result of improved 
medical treatment, greater recog- 
nition by the public that a physical 
handicap does not necessarily 
involve 2 mental handicap and a 
greater acceptance by “normal” 
(as distinct from “special”) 
schools of such children. 

But although many firms are 
most generous in their contribu- 
tions to charities, it really is 
questionable whether they can be 
expected to make loans or sponsor 
handicapped students. 

Such students often have the 
expectancy of relatively short 
working lives due to the progres- 
sive nature of their condition. 
Others with non-progressive prob- 
lems will be considered by many 
employers to be “unemployable”. 

It is important that the prob- 
lems of thisgroup of young people 
should be recognized. It would be 
inequitable if we added yet an- 
other problem to lives which 
already face so many dis- 
advantages.

Out of sight 

From Mr Philip Joseph 
Sir. Lord Craigton’s plea (Oaober 
4) for the provision of name labels 
with clearer type is well founded. 

However, the real answer lies in 
persuading people to wear their 
name badges on their right shoul- 
ders and not on their left as is 
usually done. We shake hands 
with our right hands, when the left 
shoulder gets thrown back at the 
vital moment of eye contact and 
the surface of the badge is then 
presented obliquely away from the 
viewer. 

Then, even if one is not myopic, 
one is still obliged to look some- 
one - right in the turned away 
shoulder while greeting them. It is 
not eleganL

Policing in Bristol 

From the Chief Constable of Aron 
and Somerset Constabulary 
Sir. Since Miles Kington (feature. 
Oaober 2) is so interested in 
policing events in Bristol I should 
be delighted to provide the 
opportunity for him to meet those 
officers who, when the public are 
at risk, have to take difficult 
decisions such as whether to 
mount a siege orto sustain itin the 
absence of the certain knowledge 
that an armed criminal has fled. I ’ 
am sure they would be interested 
to learn from his experience in 
these matters. 

Incidentally, had he bothered to 
check on the number of arrests for 
drug-related offences in the recent 
operation in St Paul’s he could 
have learned that in fact 60 were 
arrested-

ON THIS DAY 


OCTOBER 9 1817 


DRESS-MAKZRS 

TO THE EDITOR OF 
THE TIMES. 

Sir,— ... I plead in behalf of a 
numerous dass of helpless females, 
the victims of a tyranny Inn little 
known to the public, and Inst of 
all probably, contemplated by 
those of higher rank, in whose 
cause the)' suffer. The hardships 
and privations experienced by the 
young women apprenticed or hired 
to dress-makers in this metropolis, 
so far exceed the sufferings of any 
other description of persons in this 


country, not excepting the parish 
poor, and scarcely even the in- 
mates of our prisons, that l would 
fain hope that they need only to be 
pointed out to public notice in 
order to be redressed. The lot of 
domestic servants is to be envied, 
in comparison to that of the 
persons to whom I now allude . . . 
Exceptions may undoubtedly be 
found. I myself know of many 
instances in which these young 
persons are treated with great 
kindness: their hours of labour 
moderate: their religious and moral 
conduct watched over, and as much 
of comfort extended to them, as is 
perhaps consistent with the 
present state of society in this great 
town. Nevertheless, these are but 
exceptions. The treatment experi- 
enced by tbe generality of young 
females so employed is cruel in the 
extreme. 

The year, among dress-makers, 
is divided into seasons. The au- 
tumn and spring are (he seasons of 
business; the former beginning in 
Novembo', and ending in January; 
tbe latter extending from March to 
July, the period when the chief part 
of the nobility and gentry leave 
town for their summer residences 
and excursions. Thus, nearly two- 
thirds of the year axe fully occu- 
pied; the remainder is a state of 

comparative inactivity, during 

which the greater number of 
persons thus engaged are dis- 
missed, to subsist as they can until 
the ensuing season. 

In almost all tbe houses of 
extensive business in the dress- 
making line, the day and night are 
apportioned in the following man- 
ners- The young women rise either 
at six or seven o’clock according as 
they may happen to go earlier or 
later to bed. lliey sit at work till 8 
or 9, when they spend about half an 
hour, at most, at breakfast. At 
dinner, which varies in different 
houses, from 2 to 7 o’clock, as much 
time is allowed. And at some later 
hour, they employ a short time in 
taking their tea. In most cases this 
is the last meal allowed. After this 
they continue to work without 
intermission till 12 or one o’clock 
in the morning — that is whan 
business is slack, as they call it; but 
when orders are numerous and 
pressing; they are kept up tiD three 
or four in the morning, or even 
later if necessary; and not seldom 
in the course of the season they sit 
up all night, and continue their 
labour on the following day. On one 
occasion during the present season, 
they were only in bed 8 hours 
altogether in three successive 
nights; but then it was to execute 
an order for mourning! A wedding 
is to them not less disastrous. 
Upon one plea or another of this 
kind, and sometimes to gratify the 
wish of some capricious female of 
rank who must have her order fora 
new dress executed at a few hours' 
notice, it may be fairly computed 
that, upon an average, during the 
busy season, they sit at work 18 out 
of every 24 hours. The sabbath, 
which to the labouring poor, and 
even to our beasts of burden, is a 
day of rest, here often brings no 
solace nor intermission of labour 
with it. The work of Saturday 
night is protracted to a late hour on 
Sunday morning; and not infre- 
quently the whole of Sunday is 
thus occupied. 

Such incessant labour, it might 
be supposed, would be rewarded 
irith comforts in other respects; 
but they are sometimes as ill fed as 
they are hard worked. Will it be 
believed that in some houses of this 
description no provision is made 
for their young women on Sun- 
days? Yet such I know to be the 
fact. They are expected to spend 
the day out, whether they have 
friends in town to receive them or 
not ... I have known an instance 
of a young woman being thus 
compelled to pass the day between 
the hours of service in walking the 
streets until the return of evening; 
and with hardly the means of 
purchasing a scanty meal at the 
pastrycook's . . . 

I perceive that 1 have trespassed 
too much on your valuable paper, 
but I trust the magnitude of the 
object will be an excuse. I remain 
yours respectfully.

Incident in Verona 

From Sir John Colville 
Sir. The effect of insult and injury 
in Verona, of which Mr Chris- 
topher McCall writes (Oaober 6). 
can be widespread. 

Many years ago my wife and I 
engaged an Italian girl as a cook. 
She could not cook and she 
arrived from Italy pregnant hav- 
ing heard that the British welfare 
state provided free maternity sen- 
vices. 

I told the Prime Minister of this 
unfortunate imbroglio, adding 
that the girl's condition was due to 
a chance meeting after dark in a 
street in Verona. 

“Not one of the Two Gentle- 
men. 1 presume” said Sir Winston. 

I am. Sir. your obedient servant.

will live forever.

and two sisters, worked as an 
office boy with a real estate 
firm. Later he was a salesman. 
Because of the mother’s health 
the family moved to southern 
California in 1921, and be got 
his first job in films as the 
manager of a Los Angeles 
movie theatre. 

He was noticed by Sam 
Warner and brought into the 
studio where he soon became 
head of publicity. It was 
Wallis who coined the phrase 
"the Lubiuch touch" to sell 


the work of the esnigrf Ger- 
man director, Ernst Lubitsch. 

He became production ex- 
ecutive and bis credits began 
auspiciously ' in 1930 with 
Howard. Hawks’s The Dawn 
Patrol and Mervyn Leroy's 
gangster film, LMtle Caesar. m 

After branching out on his 
own for a time, he succeeded 
Darryl F. Zanuck as head of 
production at Warner’s in 
1933, and supervised such 
pictures as Reinhardt's A Mid- 
summer Nighfs Dream, The 
Adventures of Robin Hood. 
The Roaring Twenties, The 
Maltese Falcon, Yankee Doo- 
dle Dandy and Casablanca. 

One production of the peri- 
od, the 1942 King's Raw ; 
starred the actor Ronald 
Reagan. 

In 1944 he formed Hall 
Wallis Productions. Though 
attached to Paramount for 
distribution he had total free- 
dom to choose and set up his 
projects. Initially his credits 
were less impressive than 
before, though they included 
the splendid Barbara 
Stanwyck melodramas. The 
Strange Love of Martha Ivers 
and Sorry, Wrong Number. 

Having earlier helped to 
launch the film careers of stars 
like Olivia de Havilland and 
Errol Flynn, Wallis continued 
the tradition in '19S0 with 
Charlton Heston in Dark City. 
He was also instrumental in 
getting Dean Martin and Jerry 
.Lewis established as a film 
comedy team. 

In the 1950s his chief prote- 
gp was Elvis Presley (nine 
films beginning with Loving 
You), while his other pictures 


t ■■■ 


at this lime included The 
Rainmaker, with Katharine 
Hepburn, and -the John 
Sturges Westerns, Gunfath at 
the OK Corral and 
from Gun Bill. 

In 1964 Wallis came to 
Britain to make Becker, a huge 
box-office success which 
starred Richard Burton and 
Peter O’Toole. After this, he 
brought the stage hits 
Boeing and Barefoot in 
Park to the screen and struck 
up a fruitful partnership with 
the veteran director 
Hathaway on two popn& . 
Westerns starring John ~ 
Wayne; The Sons of fatfe / , 
Elder and True GriLTue latter J 1 
won Wayne his only Oscar, v/. 1 

Wallis returned to Britan a / 
1969 for another costume ' A 

picture. Anne qf the Thousand - 

Days, which proved successful 
despite indifferent reviews.- 
“This is one of . the crosses I 
have to bear”, Wallis reflect- !* * 
ed. “They just don't like the 
idea of Americans doing films f 
about British history".'- - 

In 1971 he added to his 
historical forays Mary, Queen 
of Scots, casting Vanessa -~'V 
Redgrave in the title role and ViJ.- 
Gienda Jackson as Queen ^ 
Elizabeth. A > 

He met his first wife, Louise 
Fazenda, the popular film 
comedienne of the , sileni 
screen, when he was acting as -* 
press agent for b Or co-flat; f. 
Rin-Tin-Tin. She died fe 
1962. Five years later he ? 
married the actress Martha ' 
Hyer, who survives him to- 
gether with one son of the Ihst 

marriage. 



DR J. H. WILKINSON 


Dr James Hardy Wilkinson, 
FRS, who made an outstand- 
ing contribution to computing 
through his work on numeri- 
cal analysis, died on October 
5. He was 67. 

Born on September 27, 
1919, be was educated at Sir 
Joseph Williamson's Mathe- 
matical School, Rochester, 
and Trinity College, Cam- 
bridge. where, at the age of 16, 
he won a major scholarship in 
mathematics. He went on to 
gain first class honours in Part 
n of the Maths Tripos and a 
distinction in Part HI. 

He entered the Ministry of 
Supply in 1940, in an-outsta- 
tion of the armament research 
department at the Mathemati- 
cal Laboratory, Cambridge. 
He transferred in 1943 to Fort 
Halstead where he was in- 
volved in striving day-to-day 
problems in ballistics and the 
thermodynamics of explo- 
sives by classical mathemati- 
cal techniques and by 
numerical methods. 

After the war he joined the 
National Physical Laboratory 


(NPL) to embark on the work 
which subsequently led to 
world-wide recognition and 
aedaira. . 

He played a key part in 
developing the ACE comput- 
er, one of the first to be builL 
He then concentrated on the 
application of computers for 
solving scientific problems, 
developing the numerical 
methods needed for the task. 
In this research. Wilkinson 
departed from existing ap- 
proaches and devised a new 
type of analysis based on a 
different philosophy. 

This Wilkinson called 
“backwards error analysts”. In 
trying to find a numerical 
solution to a mathematical 
problem, he found himself 
solving not the original prob- 
lem but another dose to iL 
From this be then worked 
backwards to solving the. ini- 
tial problem. 

He published Rounding Er- 
rors in Algebraic Processes and 
The Algebraic Eigenvalue 
Problem, both standard 


works. He also developed 
mathematical software in 
high-level languages, the most 
common of whiai is Fortran 
(formula translation). 

Following his retirement 
from NPL he was appointed 
professor in the computer 
science department at Stan- 
ford University, California. 

Wilkinson, despite the 
many honours beflowed upon 
him. never lost contact with 
those around him, nor adopt- 
ed an ostentatious lifestyle. 
The bicycle remained his pre- 
ferred form of transport, and 
at many international gather- 
ings his numerous foreign 
admirers were surprised to see 
him arrive on two wheels. -ffis 
zest for fine wines, good food 
and convivial company was 
shown in the numerous par- 
ties that he and his wife gave 
for friends and colleagues. " 

He married, in 1945, Headi- 
er Ware, who was a continu- 
ous support to him. She and 
their son survive him. -a 
daughter having predeceased 
him — 


SIR JOHN WESTALL 


General Sir John Wesiall 
KCB, CBE who died in New 
Zealand on September 30, 
aged 85, was an officer whose 
distinguished service was pri- 
marily in the Royal Mmines, 
but who also spent a consider- 
able number of years in intelli- 
gence appointments. 

John Chaddesley Wesiall 
was bora on July 2, 1901. 
Though a New Zealander, he 
was educated at Dulwich. He 
joined the Royal Marines in 
October 1919, and by 1930 
had reached the rank of 
captain. 

He served in HMS Diomede 
in New Zealand from 1930 to 
1933, and in HMS Si Vincent 
from 1934 to 1936. He quali- 
fied at the Royal Naval Staff 
College in 1938 and was 


appointed staff officer, intelli- 
gence, at Singapore in 1931, 
where be remained until the 
eve of the Japanese 
occupation. 

Thereafter be held intelli- 
gence appointments in Ma- 
laya, India and Burma until 
returning to the naval intelli- 
gence division at the Admiral- 
ty in 1944. 

After the Second World 
War, between 1945 and 1951, 
he commanded the Infantry 
Training Centre, Royal Ma- 
rines, was staff officer, intelli- 
gence, Cape Town, chief staff 
officer to major-general Royal 
Marines, Plymouth, and CO 
of the Royal Marine Barracks 
at Plymouth and Deal 

He was appointed chief of 
staff to tire Commandant- 


MR DAVID MURE 


Mr David Mure, a small but 
effective cog in the wartime 
machine of anti-Nazi decep- 
tion. died recently at his home 
in Chelsea. He was 73. 

David William Alexander 
Mure was born in Eglinton 
Castle, Ayrshire, on October 
25. 1912. His father. Colonel 
William Mure, who died that 
year, was a grandson of the 
first LonJ Lecon field and head 
of his sept, the Mures of 
CaldwelL 

He left Wellington early in 
the Great Depression, among 
whose many casualties were 
the fixed incomes of small 
landed families such as his 
own. A venture into film- 
making did not improve his 
fortunes. 

When the war began, he 
enlisted in the Royal Norfolk 
Regiment and found himself 
guarding London's dockland. 
He was soon picked out for 


officer training, and commis- 
sioned into the 60th Rifles. 
With them he served in the 
Western Desert until he was 
shifted from the ardours of the 
front line to staff work in the 
Levant 

He joined the tiny, efficient 
team known as A Force, 
whose ostensible task was to 
train soldiers in methods of 
escape. Their actual work, far 
more secret and more intri- 
cate. was to play back to the 
German Abwehr in Athens 
and Istanbul the radio sets of 
captured spies, without letting 
the Germans know that the 
spies had .been captured. 

It was thus possible substan- 
tially to deceive the German 
high command, and to divert 
many divisions from the Rus- ' 
sian from to guard the Balkans 
against invasions that never 
took place. 

After the war Mure kept 


MR ASHLEY COURTENAY 


1 


Mr Ashley Courtenay, who 
wrote Let's Halt . Awhile, a 
hotel guide which became an 
English classic, died at sea on 
October 7. He was 98. 

The first edition of this 
unassuming-looking volume 
had as its - subtitle: “Being 
some recommendations from 
personal • experience as to 
where to eat and sleep in Kent 
and Sussex, with digressions 


into Surrey." when it first 
appeared in 1934. 

But it soon came to be 
regarded as - so accurate a 
mirror of English middle-dass 
life that it even found its way 
into a Punch cartoon in 1956. 

The guide eventually had 
editions in three languages 
and achieved its 50th birthday 
in 1984. 

Some changes in format 
were perceptible in the face of 


commercial pressure. But the 
guide retained much of the 
charm of Courtenay’s original 
prose, -redolent of an era when 
Dorset lanes were still almost 
innocent of motor cars. ' 

He himself continued work- 
ing well into his nineties, and 
was on a wine cruise in the 
Mediterranean when he died. 

His wife, Nancy, was found 
dead in her cabin on the same 
day. 


KATHARINE LADY CHORLEY 

Katharine Ladv Otoriey, and climbing from her fetheris 
who died on October 2 at the family, particularly the. En- 


age of 88, was the only 
daughter of Edward Hopkin- 
son, MP and electrical 
engineer. 

After serving as a VAD in 
the First World War she 
became her father's secretary, 
jater working for the Liberals 
in politics. 

She inherited a love of hills 


glish Lake District where she 
met her future husband, Tbeo 
(later Lord) Choriey. She be- 
came president of the Ladies’ 
Alpine Club, vice-president of 
tire Fell & Rock Climbing 
Gub, and editor of its journal ‘ 
This interest led her to write 
her first book. Hills & High- 
ways. which was followed by 




Armies <£ the Art qf Revolu- 
tion. written largely before, 
but published during the war. 
and still required reading: 

This was fo! lowed: in 1950, 
by Manchester Made Them, a 
perceptive picture of the soci- 
ety in which she grew dp; and 
a bn^graphy of Arthur Hi«h 
Clough, published weD before 
that poet's ■ importance, was 
generally recpgnfeed.. - ■ ^ 


r 






General Royal Marines in 
1951 and the following year 
succeeded to the post himself 
He retired in 1955. 

He had many friends in 
business and on retirement 
joined the board of United 
Dominions TrusL 

He was a keen fisherman 
and a good shot and was able 
to indulge in these pastimes to 
lire frill during his retiremenL 
until illness overtook him. He 
was a very equable man who 
was never known to lose his 
temper. 

He was twice married, first, 
in 1930. to Maud Busbe who 
died in 1971 and, second, in 
1977, to Margaret Boyle, who 
survives him. There were two 
sons and one daughter of the 
first marriage.

silent, as ordered, for years 
When at last he could' put 
some of this into prinL be 
wrote three books: Practise to 
Deceive (in paperback as 
Phantom Ann r). Bis own war 
story; Master of Deception, a 
life of his boss, the enigmatic 
Brigadier Dudley Clarke; and 
The Last Temptation ;■* mock 
autobiography of Guy Liddell 
long a senior figure in MI5. 

This. book, which mad- 
dened many readers by item- 
ing those in it after characters 
in Lewis CarroH, gave fasci- 
nating insights into- the work- 
ings of the security service and 
the English class system. 

Behind a rather bumbling 
exterior Mure concealed a 
sharp eye and a warm heart. 
He tried his hand at various 
business ventures.- ending as 
head of a small textile firm. 

He was twice married and 
leaves a- son by each marriage.

by beat flow from deep whbin

Dr Andrea- Morclli and Dr 
Adam M. Daewonsn, of Haij 
vard University, have reached 
similar conclusions, but they 
argue that their mulu air best 
represented by anomaiiK made 
the metallic, core hsdt They 
think the structures may be 
circulating currents set up 
within the liquid core as it cools 
and adds to a growing sohd 
below. 

These preliminary results 
were announced recently at a 
meeting of the American Geo- 
ohvsical Union but they provide 
a first tantalising glimpse of a 
region which powers much or 
the world's geological processes. 

Currents in the liquid core 
generate the Earth's magnetic 
field and provide' beat for the 
mantle • ■

President Reagan, on the 
eve of his departure for the 
Reykjavik talks with Mr 
Mikhail Gorbachov, the 
Soviet leader, yesterday urged 
national unity and bipartisan 
support for his mission. 

. He told a Republican cam- 
paign rally in Raleigh, North , 
Carolina, that it was at times 
like these, when diplomacy 
was being conducted at the 
highest level he was particu- 
larly grateful for the way “we 
as a free people puli together”. 

Administration officials 
have said it was possible that a 
full summit could be held in 
Washington this year.' 

Asked in a tel vision inter- 
view yesterday whether the 
US wanted to see something 
tangible on human rights be- 
fore it could ever sign an arms 
accord. Mr George Shultz, the 
Secretary of State, said: “No, 
we didn't say that. If we can 
find something that is in our 
interests in these major arms 
reduction proposals, we 
should go ahead with that” 

• MOSCOW: The Soviet 
Union appears to have re- 
duced its expectations for the. 
talks (A Correspondent 
writes). 

In complete contrast to 
earlier optimistic articles, the 
Communist Pariydaily news- 
paper. Pravda, in a com- 
mentary by its editor-in-chief, 
Viktor Afanasyev, noted yes- 
terday that despite various 
Soviet-US meetings in recent 
months there had been no 
progress on arms controL

US scientist 
‘defects’ 


Moscow (Reuter) — A US 
scientist has arrived in Mos- 
cow after defecting from the 
United States and has been 
granted political asylum, Tass 
said yesterday. 

“I am happy that this 


nightmare is once and for all 
behind me.” it quoted Mr 


behind me.” it quoted Mr 
Arnold Lokshin as saying.lt 
said he had worked until last 
month as a cancer research 
director in Houston. 


sure that Britain remained a 
free country and a reliable 
ally. 

He was cheered when be 
renewed the Government's 
commitment to the Trident 
missile programme and when 
he delivered the following 
message for consumption in 
the United States: “We the 
Conservative party are the 
government of Britain not 
those who have had the 
headlines so far this autumn, 
and we in this Government 
are not and never will be soft 
on defence. 

“ We are and will remain 
sound and reliable allies. We 
will not abandon our friends.” 

Mr Nicholas Ridley, Sec- 
retary of State for the Environ- 


ment, announced plans tor 
four more Urban Develop- 
ment Corporations to take 
powers over planning, land 
assembly and development to-' 
create thousands of new jobs 
in Greater Manchester, on 
Teeside, in the Black Country 
and in Tyne and Wear. 


Mr Fowler went out of his 
way to soothe the fears of 
Conservative supporters and 
the public over the 
Government's handling of the 
National Health Service as be 
outlined his detailed package 
of measures for improving 
treatment, and facilities. What 
he did not leD conference is 
that they will have to be 
financed out of existing funds. 

The continuing concern 
about the NHS was reflected 
in a number of speeches 


The Rev Peter Vickers, fraa 
Worcester is one of 24 clergy- 
men who have been experienc- 
ing the rigorous training of 
array life with we . of the 
country’s top in&nhy .miits 
this week (AngeJIa Johnson 
writes) 

Codenamed operation “Vic- 
ar Elastic", the coarse is being 
held with tiie First Battalion, 
The Para date Regiment, at 
Bulford, Wiltshire. 

The vicars, aged from 25 to 
40, have been token through 
new recruits' t raining , includ- 
ing learning to drive a tank, a 
night survival exercise on Sal- 
isbury P lain, a flight in an air- 
craft and (adding an assault 
course. 

They have also been shown 
how army padres would oper- 
ate in time of war, during a 
mod: exercise 

The course was designed to 
give civilian daymen die 
opportunity to experience 
some of the stresses of a

• Mr Kenneth Clarke, the 
Paymaster General and the 
senior employment Minister 
in the Commons, last night 
described the Sogat vote as a 
“great blow” (Richard Evans 
writes). 


He said: “It is difficult to see 
where the dispute goes now. I 
continue to be concerned 
about the way in which the 
highly desirabteljallotexerdse 
is earned' out by tire print 
union.” 


Mr Clarke made an appeal 
to the striking print workers 
not to indulge in violence on 
the picket line. “If people 
really feel the dispute has to 
continue I certainly hope it is 
continued without violence 
and intimidation. 


“I. heard a few days ago of 


appalling attacks on people 
connected with TNT, who 
deliver News International 
papers.” 


Mr Vickers dons Army kit, 
but keeps his dog collar. . 


Hie Prime Minister, was 
informed of the vote shortly 
after it was announced. 


Mr Peter Walker, the Sa> 
retary for Energy and tire 

Cabinets longest-surviving 

wet, yesterday in effect at- 
tacked Government eco- 
nomic policy at a Hmchame 
fringe meeting organized by a 
hitherto unknown otgani* 
ation calling itself CARt — 
Conservative Action to Re- 
vive Employment. 

The organization sounded 
similar to one of those hith- 
erto unheard of g roups which 
frequently claim responsibil- 
ity for specific atrocities in 
the Middle East Sometimes 
they have btood*curtfling ti- 
tles of which CARE is typical 
At: other times ttar are 
named after individual fight- 
ers in the cause. ■„ . 

Western intelligence sour- 
ces in Bournemouth last 
night suggested that CARE 
might be an offihoot, or nval, 
of the fanatical Tory Reform 

Group, whirt was Ure succes- 
sor to the extreme wet PEST 
of the 1970s (Pressure for 
Economic and Social 
Toryism). 

The Tory Reform Group 
and PEST ware formed by the 
so-called “frontline” wets af- 
ter the origuial wm liberation 
organization, the Bow Group, 
made a separate treaty with 
the Tory nght in the 1970s 
and became. a piHar of the 
precarious stalemate in the 
area. But all these groups 
must be seen in the context of 
the turbulent politics of the 
Home Counties as a whole. 

All are components of tire 
Hezbollah, or Party of God 
(the Conservatives). But the 
groups tend to hate one 
a m-ithw almost as match as 
they hate ‘ the Thaicherite 
occupying power, and its 
American backers. 

Experts were agreed that, at 
this stage, it would be impos- 
sible to say who Mr Walker 
was working for when he car- 
ried out yesterday's attack. It 
was even possible that be was 
working for powerful forces 
insidethe Government. 

At the CARE meeting, Mr 
Walker told the delerious - 
mob of students that it was an 
“economic absurdity” for the 
Government to have to 
spend so much on unemploy- 
ment benefit. This is a well- 
known wet code for using the 
money to create more infla- 
tion. Yesterday’s attack was 


themselves such names as die 
“Iain MacLeod Comman- 
do.” or the “Action Group 
Benjamin DfsrcalL” - " 
Otherwise, yesterday's 

proceedings at the conference 

went as well for the Govern- 
ment asthey had on Monday. 
Mr Walker, before he made 


his move at that fringe meet- 
ing, made a skilful' sueech 


ing, made a skilful' speech 
summing up a debate oh 
energy. He defended nuclear 
power while showing some 
understanding of the , case 
against it The Thatcherites 
did not mind which case be 
was for, so Joint as it seemed 
to- be the Government’s, 
which on the. whole it was. 
That only emphasized . the 
devilish cunning pfhwtaBCh- 
timedeed. 

Some, however, have so % 
spent the week woiMfering 
about the identity of someone 
referred by the conference 
chairman, Mr Lawrence, 
when on Monday he ffifftlu* 
all to co-operate wiflr fee 
courteous, but thorough.p&. 
lice in their huge security 
duties. Someone, he said, had 
“pulled rank' in an effort to 
avoid a security check. The 
wets suspected it wastbe 
Prime Minister. Others as- 
sumed it was Mr Hesdtine: 

“Look here, officer, 1 used 
to be Secretary of $tafe:for 
Defence. This intimate body 
search is intolerable.”- - 

Policeman: ”Oh, yeph. 
And I'm the Horne Secretary. 
You’re under arrest.” • . ■ 

It was one of several minor 
security modems so for this 
week. A man is expectedftt> 
appear at a fringe racetjpg 
today.

Kaufman 
in 

reshuffle 

Mr Henry Kaufinan. New 
‘ or * c s foremost financial 
guru, has resigned as vice* 
chairman and director ofSalo 
mon Inc, holding company for 
toe investment banking and 
commodities group, as part of 
a widespread management 
reorganization. 

The voice that has so fre- 
quently moved exchange 
rates, interest razes and bond 
prices will be far from stilled 
however. Mr Kaufman, is . to 
concentrate on directing the 
research department of Salo- 
mon Brothers, the group's 
securities and . bond-trading 
subsidiary. 

In the latest Comments on 
Credit . the chief vehicle for his 
influence over markers , ’ Mr 
Kaufinan puts the latest ster- 
ling crisis down to a combina- 
tion of fears of reflationary 
policies after the election, 
allied to Britian's fast-deteri- 
orating trade balance. 

The Bank of England's 
move to support the pound by 
intervening in the fbriegn 
exchange market rather than 
raising interest rates marks a 
break in policy, be says. But 
he says ‘‘the markets may 
conclude that an increase in 
British interest rates of more 
than 100 basis points (I pet 
cent) will be necessary/- 


A wave of selling hit the 
pound yesterday, sending the 
sterling index down by a full 
point, to a new low, and 
stepping tip the pressure for a 
rise in base rates. 

- The index fell from 68.1 to 
67.1 as tbe ponnd lost ground 
against all major currencies. 
Interest rates in the money 
markets rose and gill-edged 
securities fefl by up to £1. 

The Bank of England inter- 
vened modestly in the morn- 
ing in support of the pound, 
but ft then withdrew. “I think 
they saw that it was pretty 
futile.” said one dealer. 

There were no major new 
factors affecting the pound 
yesterday, apart from a tele- 
vision interview with the 
pumcehor. Mr Nigtl Lawson, 
in which he reprated that 
entry into the European 
Monetary System would be 
considered when appropriate. 

He said: “My own personal 


view is that the time win come 
when we will join it/ 1 But Mr 
Lawson declined to be drawn 
on interest rates or the plight 
of the pound.

The Bundesbank an- 
nounced that it would not be 
holding a press conference 
after ns fortnightly council 
meeting today. This indicated 
that no reduction in German 
interest rates is pending. A cut 
could have helped to avert a 
rise in base rates. 

Money market interest rates

Ime with a base raze level well 
above the present 10 per cent. 

The three-month interbank 
raze rose to !0*i6-I0V per 
cent, and the one-month rate 
dosed at lO^-lO'A per cent. 

The consensus view in the 
City is that a one-point rise in 
base rates will be needed to 
steady the pound, but that 
such an increase is not pos- 
sible until after the Conser- 
vative Party conference. 

According to Mr Stephen 
Lewis, chief economist at 
Phillips & Drew, yesterday's 
lack of intervention in' support 
of the pound signalled that the 
Bank of England is preparing 
the way for a rise in interest 
rates. 

It is clear, however, that the 
only way for the Government 
to really hit back in support of 
the pound will be with a 
surprise move, such as allow- 
ing an increase in base rates 
just as Mr Lawson is 
delivering his conference 
speech at Bournemouth this 
morning. 

Bui, having spent the past 
two wraks attempting to avoid 
such a move, this would be a 
major sacrifice for the 
Chancellor.

mon Agricultural Policy, to a

ministers.

promised shareholders a high-

dissuade them from accepting 
toe £258 million cash bid from 
Mr Ron Brierley, the New 
Zealand financier. 

Mr Nicholas Barber, the 
group managing director, de- 
clined to give a firm indica- 
tion of what the final dividend 
would be, but said the trading 
position was very good. Al- 
though pretax profits for the

Britain sets 
£6bn takeover 
record in US 


By John Bell, City Editor 


British companies have 
spent a record-breaking £6 
billion so for this year on 
buying .American companies. 
This transatlantic spending 
spree represents a substantial 
extra drain on the British 
equity market at a time when 
fund raising from all sources is 
running at alMirae high levels. 

It coincides also with a 
period when institutional cash 
flows are coming under 
increasing pressure as com- 
panies, meed with pension 
fund suiplusses, opt for a 
contributions holiday. 

These are the main findings 
of a study published yesterday 
by Hoare Govett. the stock- 
tanker. So for this year, British 
companies have spent more 
than twice the S3. 5 billion 
worth of deals recorded in the 
whole of 1985. 

Some aspects of this activ ity 
are of concern to institutional 
investors. First, there has been 
a high price paid for many of 
the United States acquisitions. 

More than £2.6 billion of 
the aggregate sums spent 
represent goodwill — the pre- 
mium over net assets of the 
businesses acquired. Institu- 
tional investors who have, in 
effect, seen an involuntary 
redistribution of their port- 
folios due to the spending 
spree, may have misgivings 
because of the notoriously 
patchy record of British com- 
panies in the United States. 

The scale of the acquisitions 
has almost certainly contrib- 
uted to the recent pressure on 
sterling alihough the precise 


effects of this arc difficult to 
quantify. The rush to buy 
American may be related also 
to a growing concern that if 
Labour comes to power after 
the next election, restriction 
may be placed on overseas 
investment. 

Almost £2.1 billion of the 
sums raised from the deals 
represented a drain on the 
British equity market in the 
form of rights issues, vendor 
platings or vendor rights is- 
sues. The funds raised for 
American acquisitions have 
been a big factor in the high 
level of total funds raised in 
ihe British equity market so 
far this year. 

A total of £9.6 billion has 
been raised to the end of 
September against £7.4 mil- 
lion for the whole of 1985. 
With the British Gas 
privatization still to come the 
1986 total will be extremely 
high, says the broker. 

Income and capital gearing 
for the companies which com- 
prise the FT Actuaries Indus- 
trial Index is now 15 per cent 
and 7 per cent respectively, or 
roughly half the levels reached 
five years ago. 

Much of this has been due 
to buoyant levels of company 
profits. Because of this, says 
Hoare Govctti British quoted 
companies are in a strong 
position to expand by taking 
on more debt. The' quoted 
corporate sector could take on 
another £32 billion of debt 
before its collective balance 
sheet returned to the gearing 
levels of 1982.

A government scheme to

survey conducted by 1 Social 
and Community Planning Re- 
search, a research 
organization. 

. The survey, published yes- 
terday in the October Employ- 
ment Gazette, shows that 61 
per cent- of businesses estab- 
lished under the Enterprise 
Allowance Scheme were still 
trading two years after toe 
allowance ended. 

Each surviving business em- 
ployed an average & one other 
person, and most, 91 percent 
expected to be operating in 12 
months’ time. 

The scheme, providing un- 
employed people with £40 a 
week for a year , to set up in 
business If they have £1,000 of 
their own to invest operated 
on a pilot basis in 1982. The 


survey is hased on the experi- 
ences ^-participants in the 
pilot scheme.

170,000 people have taken 
part The sdieme is being 
expanded to provide for 86,000 
entrants tins year <1986-87) 
and 1004)00 in 1987-88.

count was £L£00 in the time 
that the allowance is paid.

This is significantly, lower 
than most other methods of

The Labour Force Survey 
shows that 1 j 08 million people

were either not looking for 
work, or had paid jobs. This 
was partly offset by 760,000

Hayes, says there is enormous 
scope for selling the two 
companies' products through 
the same outlets. 

Waterford’s offer ofl 4 of its 
shares for every three Wedg- 
wood, places a value on them 
of 564p. In the stock market 
the Wedgwood shares shot up 
lI5pto 568p. 

The deal, which 
wasarranged with the Central

shareholders in Britain to 
collect their tax credits on the 
Waterford shares at a more 
beneficial rate than in Ireland. 

Last year. Waterford earned 
£114 million on sales of £112

THE TIMES THURSDAY OCTOBER 9 1986 


Board in plea over 
export support 

By Teresa Poole, Business Correspondent 


More efficient' and speedier 
support from Government 
departments is needed to help 
British companies compete 
for large overseas capital 
projects, the Overseas Projects 
Board said yesterday. 

In its review of projects 
exports since April. 1985. the 
board — an advisory group of 
senior industrialists — called 
also for the more effective use 
of aid money taking full 
account of the benefits to 
British industry- and: 

• an increase in Britain's total 
aid budget 

• more support from the 
machinery of Whitehall for 
exports 

• an increase in the Aid and 
Trade Provision which should 
be operated with commercial 
considerations as the main 
criteria 

• less aid money to be put 
into 100 per cent grants and 


instead trasfered to mixed 
credits . _ 

On the question of ATP 
support the board makes a 
plea for quicker decisions 
from the various Government 
departments involved includ- 
ing Trade and Industry, the 
Overseas Development 
.Administration and the Ex- 
port Credits Guarantee 
Department 

The report states:“The 
present svstem engenders 
overly cautious attitudes and 
protracted discussion before 
decisions are taken. In most 
cases, we consider the right 
decisions have finally bran 
reached. But too often these 
have come about only after 
excessive discussion and 

delay. 

“ The result is a loss of 
impetus and a surrender of 
initiative which can be fatal to 
a company's chance of 
success.**

foe merger with its rival. 
Green bank, yesterday an- 
nounced more than doubled 
interim pretax profits to 
£631.000. 

Turnover for foe six months 
to August 2 rose from £6.39 
million to £7.24 million. The 
figures were flattered by a 
contribution from Multiple 


Industries Group, with which 
Walker merged m February. 

Sir Anthony JolliffeL chair- 
man and fbriner Lord Mayor 
of London, says that foe 
broader spread of interests has 
reduced foe group's exposure 
to cyclical influences. The 
board is not paying an interim 
dividend, but it is 
recommending a final pay- 
ment of Up. The shares 
firmed lp to 57%p.

and mechanical engineering 
business: reported a rise in

nance was significantly higher

tory levels and second half

less than those earned in foe 
second six months of last 
year. The interim dividend is 
is being raised to 3p against 
2J25p last time and the board 
intends to recommend a final 
dividend of not less than the

Mr Uwson’s epic wrestling 
match with the markets has 
De ®. n . Prompted - partly by 
Political considerations. Not 
the politics of a rise in interest 
rates just before or during the 
party conference - that would 
be inconvenient but scarcely 
disastrous — but the more 
serious consideration of the 
impact of higher rates on 
mortgages, and so on the retail 
pnee index. 

The reduction in inflation is 
a prime electoral asset- A rise 
in rates now, depending on 
any tunher changes in the next 
tew months, might not fell oat 
ot the year-on-year rate of 
inflation until November 
1987. That could be very

- To do nothing and let

scarcely an option. If an 
increase in interest rates 
threatens to bump up the RPI. 


it goes on much further. 

In bis speech to the Inter- 
national Monetary Fund. Mr 
Lawson said the underlying 
rale of inflation which he pul 
at per cent was set to 
continue at about that rate. 
The basis for this is that the 
fall in the exchange rate has 
roughly been offset by the 
reduction in the price of oil. 
Since then the pound has 
fallen further, so the balance 
has been tipped toward higher 
inflation. 

Meanwhile, the gap between 
money market rates and bank 
base rates will encourage 
round-tripping by traders 
borrowing from the banks and 
re-lending at a profit which 
will swell the money supply 
further. Admittedly, the 
Government's need to sell 
gilts is low al the moment, 
partly because of the recent 
increase in the limits on 


control can be made, it is 
difficult to see how a rise in , 
interest rates can be avoidedL 

Meanwhile, in Bourne- 
mouth, the Chancellor will 
have other things to talk 
about. Sound financial 
management is only one half 
of the Government’s eco- 
nomic prospectus and. despite 
the present difficulties in the 
markets, the one which has 
been most nearly fulfilled. The 
other half is the more difficult 
task of improving the supply 
side of the economy. 

Economic progress depends 
just as much on convincing 
the audience at Bournemouth 
and the wider world of the 
need to abandon well-loved 
restrictive practices, increase 
competition and devolve de- 
cisions on spending back to 
the individual as it does on the 
Chancellor's uneven relation- 
ship with the markets. 


Would Josiah Wedgwood have agreed? 


By Cliff Fehham 

Another great British name 
surrendered Its independence 
yesterday when Wedgwood, 
the fine china and earthenware 
company and die pride of the 
potteries for ahmst 230 years, 
agreed to a £252 nuUkra 
takeover. bid from Waterford 
Glass, whose reputation for 
handcrafted crystals has been 
built over as maiqr years-

under examination by the 
Monopolies and Mergers

white knight in the Irish 
company. 

If there is any smprise in 
the merger it is that it did not 
happen tong ago. 

Side by side, foe products 
produced from foe ldlns of die 
Midlands and foe factories of 
foe Republic of Ireland, repre- 
sent a world beating combina- 
tion, from the delicate charm 
of a Waterford goblet to foe 
grand dinner service produced 
by Wedgwood. 

It is easy to understand why 
Wedgwood maintained that its 
pedigree and leadership in 
world markets stood nothing

States for about half of its 
sales of £112 million a year 
and will provide a boost for 
Wedgwood products, which at 
present represent aboat 32 per 
cent of the £152 million 
turnover. 

The two fine established 
names should easily be able to 
- fight off many of the disr 
counted brands which repre- 
sent the main threat to growth. 

Mr Hayes said yesterday: 
**In foe US our name is 
synonomous with crystal. We 
can sell an item for $100 in the 
US, but only $75 in Europe. 
We want to build op the 
Wedgwood name to foe same 
extent, but that does not mean 
we are going to turn it Into an 
Irish china — we value the 
name and will keep it.” 

But at the same time he is 
kemi to reduce dependence on 
United States sales and is 
turning his sights on European 
markets and the Far East 

In Britain, there is immedi- 
ate advantage in the 150 chain 
of Wedgwood in-store con- 
cessions with his own prod- 
nets, marrying up Waterford's 
own smaller chain of 25 shops 
selling Aynsley China, foe 
business Milch it acquired in 
1970. 

In Japan, an increasingly 
important area where the more 
prosperous endeavour to mir- 


Amerteans, Wedgwood does 
S6 mfifioa of business a year 
and Waterford none. 

Mr Hayes says: “To get the 
breathnoBgh now offered to us 
would have taken us six years 
on our own.” ■ 

In the past few years many 
famous British names' have 
passed on. Harrods went tothe 
East, Sothebys to foe West, 
T hunhfll is owned by a South 
African, and Fortnom and 
Mason by a Canadian. 

I wonder whether Josiah 
Wedgwood, f wader of the 
dynasty is turning in his grave 
at foe crossing of foe Irish 
Sea. 


Sterling seemed to be dangerously 
close to a free fall yesterday. The gilt 
market, where prices had a sus- 
piciously firm look (offfcal support?), 
and the foreign exchange and money 
markets do not expect either the West 
Germans or Japanese to help the 
Chancellor with interest rates cuts. 

They ' sense that the Bank of 
England may already have used a 
quarter of its $4 billion pre-election 
fighting fund in trying to hold up the 
pound and thus the spirits of the 
Conservative Party, which might 
otherwise have had to swallow a base 
rate rise in conference week. 

Optimism now consists of thinking 
that Nigel Lawson may be able to 
avoid a rise in interest rates by 
accepting devaluation or vice versa. 
At least devaluation would be of the 
least damaging kind: a modest foil 
against the dollar and a foil of more 
than a fifth against the mark and other 
strong EMS currencies this year. The 
dollar accounts for about a quarter of 
ihe trade- weighted sterling index, 
against a half for the EMS currencies. 
Bul in general, competitive gains are 
likely to be concentrated against the 
EMS currencies. 

The comveniional models suggest 
that a 10 per cent devaluation of 
sterling adds 3 per cent to prices after 
about two years. Historv shows that 
devaluation eventually feeds through 
to prices on a one-to-one basis, 
rendering depreciation of the currency- 
useless for improving long-term 
competitiveness, unless continued ad 
infinitum. 

A devaluation against our main 
competitors in the goods market at 
least gives a better chance of avoiding 
this leaden circle of decline. There is 
little doubt, for instance, that ICI 
gains a big advantage against German 
chemical rivals. Much the same 
applies to heavy engineering, such as 
electrical generating equipment and 
process plant The car trade with 
Europe should also favour switching 
production to British factories, if 
manufacturers fety the new exchange 
rates were likely to stay. Unfortu- 
nately, this is for from beCog the case. 

The rise in inflation, though mini- 
mized by the present devaluation mix, 
seems more certain. If the underlying 
inflation rate is already about 4 per 
cent, Mr Lawson cannot afford to be 
sanguine about any further infla- 
tionary effects from tiie falling pound. 

TSB - to sell or not 

Tomorrow is the day 3.15 million 
people have been waiting for — the 
start of official dealings in TSB shares 
on tiie stock exchange- Unless 
Armageddon is brought forward, they 
are guaranteed a profit How big a 
profit is uncertain, although in the 
unofficial “grey” market the shares 


may have touched 90p — a paper gain 
of 40p on the price of 50p (half the 
cost) successful applicants for the 
shares have so for had to pul up. The 
more difficult question is when to sell 
in order to take the profiL 

The euphoria has slightly worn off, 
with institutional investors talking 
down the price. But even a more 
modest 80p would yield a gross profit 
of £90 on a 300 share allocation - the 
largest category’ of non-priority 
shareholders. 

The crucial question affecting the 
price is whether or not the institutions 
will come piling into the market as 
they did with British Telecom. One 
argument says they will. The TSB is 
an obvious institutional stock: it 
operates in the still highly profitable 
UK banking market, with no exposure 
on the wilder and riskier shores of 
international lending 

On the other hand, the domestic 
banking market is becoming more 
competitive and less profitable. Over 
ihc next year ihe TSB is taking on £ 1 .3 
billion in cash which it must use 
somehow. Initially it will go on 
deposit, dragging down the average 
return on assets from well over 20 per 
cent to around 1 7 per cent for the next 
five years or so. An institutional fund 
manager might reasonably wonder 
w hat the hurry to buy TSB was about. 

The obvious comparisons with TSB 
are the two Scottish clearing banks 
which, though not as large, have the 
same dependence on the domestic 
market. If the shares rise to 7Sp. the 
yield on the proforma 1986 profits 
will be 4.8 per cent, almost exactly the 
current prospective yield on Royal 
Bank of Scotland. If the price goes to 
S5p. the 4.4 per cent yield is virtually 
identical with the prospective yield of 
Bank of Scotland. 

At the issue price, the TSB is being 
sold at a 26 per cent discount to assets 
— more than any other dearer. But on 
a 30p premium the discount starts to 
vanish, although it does not reach the 
preiqium to assets at which the 
Scottish clearers trade. 

If the institutions heed their stock- 
brokers, they are unlikely to buy at 
more than about 85p. If the grey 
market is any indication, that is the 
likely opening price, and it could be 
lower. If the institutions then made a 
lemming-like decision to buy, they 
would temporarily bump the price to 
a level more than its worth. Small 
shareholders should take such an 
opportunity to sell. 

The institutions may, however, 
choose to play a waiting game, lapping 
up other bank stocks instead until the 
second part payment next year weak- 
ens the TSB price, as it did with BT. In 
that situation small investors would 
do just as well to hold on to their TSB 
shares. There are few safer and better 
long term investments available.

STOCK MARKET REPORT 



LCP Holdings at new peak on 
Ward White bid speculation 


TEMPUS 


By Michael Clark and Carol Leonard 


LCP Holdings, the special- 
ist retailer and motor parts 
group, was the main talking 
point after hours yesterday as 
dealers braced themselves for 
a bid today from Ward White, 
the Pavless do-it-younsdf to 
Owen Owen and Zodiac Toys 
stores group. 

LCP shares rose 7p to a new 
peak of I34p amid whispers 
that the ambitious Mr Philip 
Birch, chairman of Ward 
White, had run his slide rule 
over the company and liked 
what he saw. He may have 
already built up a small stake. 

Dealers claim that he is 
likely to offer 1 50p a share as 
an opening shot which would 
value LCP at almost £125 
million. 

Earlier -this year Mr Birch 
paid Marley £93 million for 
Payless, which has more than 
lived up to expectations. An- 
alysts have been quick to heap 
praise on Mr Birch for the deal 
and this has led to suggestions 
that he is anxious to repeat 
the feat with a similar 
acquisition. 

ward White finished 4p 
lower at 334p. 

There was also talk last- 
night that Mr Tony Berry, 
chairman of the fast-growing 
Blue Arrow, is about to ask. 
shareholders for more money 
to help finance his latest major 
acquisition. We should hear 
soon that the group, which is 
involved in activities from 
employment services to travel 
and industrial cleaning, has 
clinched a major acquisition 
in the United Stales. 


Dealers were speculating 
that the deal could be worth 
more- than £20 million and 
was likeiy to be financed by a 
one-for-three rights issue. Blue 
Arrow joined the Unlisted 
Securities Market in 1984 and 
earlier this year graduated to a 
foil listing. Last year it paid 
neariy £20 million for Brook 
Street Bureau, and it is now 
one of the biggest employment 
agencies in the country with a 
stock market value of £90 
million. Last night Blue Arrow 
finned 2p to 378p. 

British Aerospace was a 
couple of pennies easier at- 
768p despite a bullish 
presentation to City analysts 
ai its military aircraft head- 
quarters at Preston, Lan- 
cashire, yesterday afternoon. 

Since the end of June its 
order book has expanded by 
£400 million. It signed a£l50 

• Jaguar gave up 5p to 
536p despite a rapturous re- 
sponse from the City for its 
new XJ40 car. But the down- 
turn is likely to be short 
lived. Mr Richard Lake, . 
chartist at Savory MUht, 
the broker, rates the shares as 
still a buy and says he sees 
them going op to 600p. M The 
new car is going to be a 
huge success.' 1 ' he says.

“The presentation was 
impressive and the news on

said Wood Mackenzie, the 
broker, who attended the 
meeting. 

The stock market had a dull 
day on low volumes. The FT

worst at 1248. 1, down 92. The

from leisure pursuits 


Shares of British Benzol, the 
smokeless fuel manufacturer, 
mining and fuel distribution 1 
group, were suspended at 90p 
awaiting completion of its 
latest acquisition, which is in 
effect a reverse takeover, and 
details of another rights issue. 

The group is paying £25 
million for Powerscreen 
Group, a leading manufac- 
turer ami distributor of mobile 
screening equipment used for 

quarrying and mating 

. . To help finance the deal 
British Benzol is issuing 35.71 
million new shares. The group 
is also hoping to raise an extra i 
£2.7 million by offering ' 
shareholder a total of 6.05 : 
million shares at 70 pl : 

Powerscreen makes most of 
its -profits in the Rupublic of 
Ireland and in the two years 
between 1983 and 1985 they 
have risen from £3.4 million 
to £5.7 million on turnover up 
from £14.8 million to £2&2 
million. 

Attwoods, the waste dis- 
posal and aggregates supplier, 
firmed, lp to 21 lp. Last year 
the group saw pretax profits 
climb from £S.16 million to 
£7.4 million on turnover £20.9 
million higher at £56.42 
million. 

Later this month Mr Fore- 
man will embark on a US 
roadshow to promote the 
group to American fund man- 
agers ahead of a proposed 
quote for the shares on the US 
over-the-counter market 

The stores are already 
quoted in New York in the 
form of Americas Depositary 
Receipts. 

There was more misery in 
store for shareholders in Mor- 
gan Grenfell, the merchant 
bank, as the price slipped 
another lOp to a new low of 
370p. Floated at 500p in June, 
the shares now stand at a 130p 
discount to the striking price 
and must be due soon , for a 
rally. But the pre se n t low level 
of Did activity and fears that 
there are still sellers around, 
has done little for confidence. 

Frank G Gates, the Ford 
main dealer, held steady at 
96p after announcing a rise in 
'interim pretax profits from 
£530,000 to £601,000. But the 
market is still looking for a bid 
for the family-con trolled busi- 
ness and this was heightened 
by speculation yesterday that 
a large parcel of shares had 
changed hands outside the 
market

Given the origins of the Stock 
Exchange, the City cannot 
easily turn its back on. a 
business whichbegan life as a 
coffee bouse. Mecca Leisure 
has come a long way since 
and it now has intsests 
ranging from bingo and 
nightclubs to holidays and 
raierring . 

Statisticians point to the 
increasing leisure time avail- 
able to us- Apparently con- 
sumers are spending a b igger 
proportion of their income 
on leisure activities. The - 
market, said to be worth £52 
bill ion. is growing fester than 
overall consumer spending. 

Leisure fashions may 
change, but this does not 
bother Mecca. It has a prop- 
erty portfolio which is the 
envy of many, and a manage- 
ment team experienced 
enough to maximize the 
potential of the three core 
businesses. 

Since 1979, when the 
management team was put in 
place, there has been a 
continual review of the prop- 
erty portfolio. This has taken 
the form of disposing of low- 
performing assets and 
refurbishing others. This is 
not only ensuring the contin- 
ued loyalty of customers but 
it is providing new 
opportunities. 

' Bingo clubs, although a 
sound and uncydical source 
of income, are not normally 
considered to be a growth 
area, the average member 
being a woman aged 55. 
However, after the refurbish- 
ment of several properties, 
the average age fell to. 45, and 
there were even signs that 
men had been on the 
premises. . 

Nearly a third of the space 
in the social clubs is under 
used.- As part of Grand 
Metropolitan, Mecca did not 
have a free hand to use this 
space by creating an inte- 
grated catering-entertain- 
ment operation. Now ft can. 
Pilot schemes demonstrate 
that multi-purpose premises 
enjoy an immediate boost to 
revenue 

The shares at I35p stand 
on 15 times estimated 1985- 
86 earnings of 9p. This is in 
line with the sector and 
reflects the management’s 
experience and track record. 
Moreover, Mecca is of a size 
to be attractive to the serious 
institutional investor. The 
year 1986-87 will be the first 
full one for the management

while keeping construction 
ticking over, is paying oft 
Interim turnover was up 
72 per cent but taxable 

E rofits rose 19.5 per cent to 
1.6 million, reflecting the 
shift to higher margin busi- 
nesses. The acquisition of 
Southend Estates Group, in 
for the last four months of 
thU year, will mean that more 
than half the group's profits 
come from housebuilding. 

Higgs and Hill is now 
operating out of 30 sites from 
East Anglia to Weston-super- 
Mare. selling homes at an 
average £85,000 to £90,000 
each. 

Domestic construction in- 
creased turnover but margins 
remained tight. Overseas 
construction saw a fell in 
turnover after the completion 
of two large contracts. The 
company is exploring new 
opportunities in the Far East 
and Carribean. 

On the property front the 
Parisian letting market 
proved buoyant. Higgs and 
Hill's rental income is ex- 
pected to grow by about 12.5 
per cent this year. 

Full year profits should 
reach £10.5 million. Assum- 
ing tax at 40 per cent the 
prospective p/e ratio is under 
12 on shares down lOp at 
590p. 

' The full benefits of SEG 
will come through next year 
when profits could exceed 
£15 ntillioh. bringing the 
rating down below 10. For a 
well managed company with 
a strong balance sheet, the 
shares are not expensive. 

Baker Harris 
Saunders 

Baker Harris Saunders is the 
first firm of commercial es- 
tate agents to come to the 
stock market It has made Its 
-name and fortune from the 


booming City of London 
office market where ft 
specializes in letting the large 
office devdopmems*o;much 
in demand from the financial 
conglomerates which have 
flooded in ahead of big bang. 

Rowe & "Pitman, die bro- 
kets to the sale by tender of 
25 per cent of tire firm* have 
set a minimum temder price 
of I50p per share, grvmg the 
agents a market capitaliza- 
tion of £15 milltoife The 
striking price is likely to be at 
least 30p per share above 
that, with the firm; reporting 
strong institutional interest in 
having a stake in whip; i$ a 
healthy profits earner. 

The forecast p/e ratio is 14 
times. It is admfcub figure to 
set allowing for the feci that 
there there are no 
comparables in the market, 
but it looks relatively un- 
demanding The earnings of; 
residential estate agents are of 
little help here. They are 
much shorter term than those 
of commercial Anns which 
may wait five years or more 
to receive commission' from 
£100 million plus commer- 
cial developments. 

Baker Harris Saunders has 
15 to 20 big projects in the 
pipeline which will ensure fee 
income at (east in the me- 
dium term. Pretax profits of 
£1.6 million are forecast for 
the year ending April 30, 
1987 —double those for 1986. 

There has been an average 
annual increase m earnings 
per share of 105 per cent >n 
the past five years with a 
forecast of I0.7p per share for 
the next financial year. 

The problem for Baker 
Harris will be to maintain its 
growth rate either by ac- 
quisition or organically in 
what is a notoriously cyclical 
market The firm is aiming to 
expand its agency operations 
to the West End of London 
and the areas around the 
M25. The '£1.78 million net 
raised by the tender offer will 
be usedfor this. 

It will need to spread 
potentially lumpy profits and 
diversify to cover the risk 
associated with a high expo- 
sure to a current bull market 

One area into which the 
agents will not be diversify! ng 
is the 10 million sq ft j 
financial centre planned in 
London's Docklands at Ca- 
nary Wharf by Mr G Ware 
Travelstead. Baker Harris 
sees it as back-up for the City 
not as a competitor.

GENERAL APPCWSITMENITS 


October 9, 1986. 


> . '.-rftC* 


W hy should a success- 
ful marketing direc- 
tor selling last- 
moving consumer 
goods such as deter- 
gents be any less able at selling 
financial services — or vice versa? 
The answer comes back from 
company after company: “They 
simply wouldn't understand our 
business.” 

But is this true? The key 
exceptions are finance and person- 
nel directors, who are apparently 
able to switch industries with ease 
while other managers are not 
This, so it is argued, is because 
finance and personnel directors 
are “specialists” while other exec- 
utives are “generalists” whose 
skills depend on knowledge of the 
company and industry. 

Rubbish! Management far from 
being a general discipline, is in feet 
a highly specialist skill in its own 
right which is easily transferable 
from one industry to another. The 
skills and techniques required to 
run a successful manufacturing 
plant for example, are the same as 
those needed in a service com- 
pany. The manager’s job is the 
same — only the product or service 
is different 

Bui many companies are reluc- 
tant to admit this, usually arguing 
that their business is unique and 
insisting, when an executive 
search is being made, on specify- 
ing that the candidate must come 
from within the same industry. 


This, in fret could be seen as an 
admission of frilure by some 
companies who have neglected to 
train up from within their own 
next generation of management 
But it ‘is not necessarily a fruit 
since many smaller companies 
may also not have the resources 
themselves to bring on potential 
new senior managers and chief 
executives. 


But why does the solution 
always have to be to “poach” 
someone from within the same 
sector? Some of the most success- 
ful appointments in my experi- 
ence have come from managers 
outside our clients’ own in- 
dustries. Often it is only after an 
unsuccessful initial trawl through 
companies operating in the same 
field that we have been able to 
persuade clients to broaden their 
horizons and consider recruiting 
from outside their sector. 



Management is a vital 
specialist skill in its 
own right, transferable 
from one industry 
to another, says 
Michael Webb-Bowen 


When they have done so, more- 
over. they are invariably pleased 
with the results. An executive 
from another industry usually 
brings in a fresh approach to 
problems which may have baffled 
other executives for years. He or 
she will ask the basic question — 
why things are done this way — 
which those within the industry 
have invariably taken for granted. 


Even the much maligned public 
sector corporations have shown 
themselves to be more willing 
than private enterprise in search- 


ing for new talent from outride 
their sectors. Lord King at British 
Airways, Graham Day at British 
Leyiand, and Sir Ian MacGregor 
at British Steel and British Coal all 
came from outside to provide 
their own — and sometimes 
controversial — solutions to prob- 
lems which people inside those 
corporations were perhaps too 
blinkered to see: 

What this suggests, of course, is 
that the private sector must be 
more willing to show flexibility, 
especially in the rapidly changing 
environment in which they must 
operate. The lessons of the past 
couple of decades are too numer- 
ous to be ignored. For example, 
the Japanese challenge to the car 
industry and the virtual elimina- 
tion of domestic motor-cycle 
manufacturing was as much a 
frilure of British management as a 


tribute to the Japanese corporate 
ethos. 

The retail industry in the 1980s 
has also shown that companies 
failing to respond to changing 
market conditions will be replaced 
by others more ready to change: 
The Woohvorth stores, for exam- 
ple. were taken over by a team of 
professional managers rather than 
retailers. In turn, however, the 
changing retail environment 
means that the new Wool worth 
management came under attack 
from the Dixons Group in a 
classic example of how rapid 
change can confront companies. 

But it is the newspaper industry 
which, in the space of a few 
months, has shown just how fast 
change can come upon an industry 
with seemingly entrenched atti- 
tudes and positions. 

For too long, managers in 


newspaper publishing have foiled 
to tackle the core problems of their 
industry or grasp the benefits of 
new technology. Now, managers 
from other industries are being 
brought in by the new media 
entrepreneurs, who are casting off 
the shackles of generations of 
weak management 

Yet corporate optimists who 
expea that such changes are at an 
end are living in a fantasy world. 
The message for the 1990s is that 
change win accelerate rather than 
slow down, with managers having 
to cope with constant change. 

The response from British com- 
panies has been rather disappoint- 
ing. Too often they try to meet 
by reshuffling top manage- 
ment or by seeking a feeling of 
security through mergers or take- 
overs. Change for change’s sake or 
simply hoping that mere' size will 
conquer all are not managerial 
responses designed to help com- 
panies survive in a changing 
work! But a willingness to be 
flexible in bringing in new blood is 
a dear sign that a company has tbe 
will to survive and flourish. 


Such flexibility is most obvi- 
ously required at the present time 
in the City, where the forthcoming 
changes — the so-called "“Big 
Bang" — mean that traditional 
attitudes must change. Marketing 
executives with experience in 
successful “blue chip" fast-mov- 
ing consumer goods companies 


could, in particular, bring in the 
fresh ideas and managerial expa- 
nse that the City quite ctoriy 
needs. We will continue “>P 
City diems to find top ?* ccu £'2 
who will make the transition from 
outside the City. 

Yet if flexibility is to be part of 
the corporate philosophy it has to 
start at the top. Management must 
be found who can contribute a 
wider experience than can be 
gained by spending a lifetime in 
one company or industry. This is 
even more important as the world 
becomes smaller and the compet- 
itive opportunities open up, not 
just in Europe but on a global 
scale. 

E xecutive search special- 
ists must also play their 
part in finding the right 
people to take advantage 
of these opportunities — 
even if this means departing from 
traditional recruitment 
procedures. 

The key criterion when looking 
for a manager from another 
industry is: will he or she fit m? 
What is looked for is the ability to 
shift gears menially from one. 
sector to another, to exhibit the 
potential to grow into a new job in 
a new industry. For some it is a big 
leap but my experience suggests it 
is one which many managers can 
cope with. 


relarivdy short time — six months 
at the most — to find his way 
around the new company and 
industry. Often it can take a lot 
less time than that. 


\o 


After the acclimatization pe- 
riod, however, companies will 
have working for them .sot only a 
high-calibre executive capable of 
analysing problems and defining 
solutions, but also someone who 
may bring a genuinely fresh 
approach to corporate activities. 
Surely that is worth taking the 
slight - but calculated - risk of 
finding new top executives rather 
than bemoaning, the lack of 
management talent available in a 
particular sector. 




; "' r ‘ 


.Companies in the latter years of 
the [980s must realize, that they 
can no longer afford the luxury of 
traditional recruitment policies 
from within their own spheres of 
activity, when « total flexibility

the new-nameof the game:

Thc ingenuity of accountants under 
pressure is boundless but when all else 
fails, a common pipy is for a bad set of 
figures to be glossed over by brilliant 
projections for the future. The question 
then is whether these are based on 
genuine market conditions or whether

The Social Security Act of 1 985, which 

Creative accounting can 
camouflage pr oblems 

2JSLj« **« ms «tt»mn,'win 
require trustees to produce an annual 
repon for their members. Until 
reports start to become available in . a 
y^rs time, those with substantial 
pension rights who think they might be 
caught in a failing company will amply 
have to ask trustees how the funds have 
been used and whether the employer’s 
contributions are up to date. 

“Failing behind with employer's 
contributions is one of the classic signs of 
a firm in deep trouble, " said David 
Barrat of the Company Pensions 
information Centre, 

Further calculation may include the 
possibility of a takeover and the golden 
handshakes that usually result when the 
successful bidder brings on his own 
team. 

In the United Slates one of the classic 
defences against takeovers is the “golden 
parachute" whereby existing board 
members vote themselves huge sev- 
erance terms. In Britain the scope for this 
is limited by the Companies Act and by 
the Inland Revenue, which draws a 
distinction between compensation pay- 
ments for loss of office — tax free or 
reduced up to £75.000 — and pre- 
arranged deals which are treated as 
income. 

For executives in mid-career, the risk 
of waiting for a pay-off from a rich white 
knight may not be worth taking. But 
Peter Needham of Gardiner-HiD Need- 
ham. a consultancy which specializes in 



indication is usually in the trend of the 
figures. A drop in the profits oyer one or 
two years is not necessarily a cause for 
concenu but a continuing decline is 
another matter. Long-term problems can 
also make their first appearance in the 
ratios. 

“Look at profit to sales and profit to 
people employed," Mr Needham ad- 
vises. ■ “Mounting debts are another 
indicator- At best they're a sign of 
inattention to cash flow. At worst they 
can mean that the firm has caught a 
colossal cold with one or more major 
customers." 

The trouble is that problems can be 
camouflaged by creative accounting, at 
least as far as the lay person is concerned. 
With large publicly quoted companies 
such devices are quickly spotted by 
financial commentators — it is always 
worth reading what they have to say 
about your firm —but smaller companies 
can get away with the classic ways of 
fudging poor results. 

These include optimistic valuing of 
stock or revaluation of assets, or simply 
the disposal of fixed assets to bring them 
into the profit figures. More complicated 
manoeuvres might include shifting over- 


corporate failures m recent years. “In 
retrospect you could see it all coming," 
he said. “The reports from salesmen out 
m the field indicated that the toy market 
was being bit by the advent of new 
technology and we just didn't have the 
right products. 

“On lop of that we were over-extended 

Don’t resign nntfl you 
have another job 

by a badly-judged acquisition in the 
American market." Lack of competitive- 
ness and expansion at the wrong time arc 
two factors that can bring even a large 
company to its knees quickly. 

Mr Needham feels it is now more 
important than ever for individuals to 
look out for such signs. He blames the in- 
fluence of the City, where the push is 
rapid short-term results rather than 
sustained, unspectacular growth. Under 
pressure from these sources, weak 
managements are apt, literally, to go for 
broke. 

“The days when the interests of 
employees came first are over — if they 
ever existed," is his somewhat Weak 
commentary on the current employment 
scene. 

Nevertheless, he advises against 
resigning until you have another job. 
“Hang about near the lifeboats, but don't 
jump into the ocean — it can be cold out 
there." In other words you should, if 
stuck in a foiling firm, look for another 
job rather than walking out or living on 
the hope of things getting better. 

On the other hand, being brought in as 
part of a rescue operation can offer a 
unique career and financial opportunity 
if it is finked to share options when tire 
situation has been turned round. But you 
hade to check that an employer has a will 
to recovery and the. means for rescue to 
be a practicable proposition.

aThe basis of the 1982 pro- 
SMural reforms had been a 
realizauon that time spent in 
9 ourt was extremely expensive, 
f tiere was every reason to 
Ijclieve that the advantages of 
reduction in the cost to the 
parties ol an appeal and a slight 
reduction in the time occupied 
ay each individual appeal had 
been achieved. 

L in the light of four vears' 
penence the question had to 
fee asked whether more should 


In the light of experience this 
year consideration was bein 
given 10 meeting what appeared 
to be a new requirement and 
producing a more even flow of 
work by sitting several courts in 
the first fortnight of August 
in the last fortnight of Septem- 
ber. with a single coun sitting in 
between, when demand was 
traditionally very low. 

The future 

It was not likely that much 
more could be done to reduce 
the costs of an appeal in dvil 
matters, but if increased re- 
sources could be made available 
to the coun or if it were possible, 
by early identification of hope- 
less appeals, to reduce the

. ring an appeal from oral 
tegument in court to private 
study in the judges' rooms. 

The fact that there was a 
specialist corps of advocates in 
the Bar and a long tradition of 
oral argument differentiated our 
position from that of the United 
States of America. It was no 
criticism of their system to say 
that we had gone as fer as we 
should in reducing court time. 

- If we were 10 go further we 
would lose the undoubted 
advantage of a dialogue between 
bench and Bar in detecting, 
refining and resolving the cru- 
cial point or points in the appeal 
and. although the expense of 
time spent in court would .be 
decreased, other costs would be 
considerably increased in that 
written- arguments would have 
to be far more elaborate.

quired a full hearing, or both, 
progress could be made towards 
the other objective of disposing 
of all appeals as soon as they 
were ready for hearing. 

If nothing was done it seemed 
inevitable that lead times would 
increase with a corresponding 
increase in the number of 
outstanding appeals. 

Hopeless appeals 

The principle that appeals 
which had no chance of success 
should not be allowed to he set 
down had already been accepted 
by. Parliament. Effect to that 
policy had been given in speci- 
fied categories of appeal If the 
practice were to be extended 
across the board there was no 
doubt that the set-down raze 
would be reduced; the success 
rate increased and lead times 
reduced.

judgment was given in Die trial- 
court. The classic example was 
the dispute under a docu- 
mentary credit which had an 
expiry date in the immediate 
future. There were other exam- 
ples. notably where the media 
were involved. 

The normal pattern of appeal s 
was that the parties had a period 
of about four weeks in which to 
-consider whether to appeal, 
notice of appeal was given and 
the documents for the appeal 
hearing had to be collated and 
counsel briefed. 

;ll was only at that stage that 
the appeal was ready to be heard 
and Dial any inability 10 hear it 
at once could be characterized as 
court-induced. Even then coun- 
sel of the parties' choice might 
not be available. The lead time 
for appeals did not wholly 
represent a period of delay for 
which the court could be held 
responsible. 

. If the court had greater re- 
sources it could hear appeals 
much earlier than at present. 

• The current lead times were 
better than they were in IW-- 
biii had shown comparatively 
little improvement over the past 
12 months. 

Statistics 

During the year 1.604 new 
. appeals were set down. The 
^comparative figures for the 
three previous Z

1.437(1982-83).

were considered by a single Lord 
Justice. Only if he was satisfied 
that the appeal could not suc- 
ceed would leave be refused. It 
• was a preliminary hearing to see 
whether the appeal should be 
allowed to proceed in the in- 
terests not only of the would-be 
appellant but also of all other 
appellants waiting for their ap- 
peals to be beard. . . 

Although it was a matter fbr 
Parliament and the Lord Chan- 
cellor. urgent consideration 
should be given to the desirabil- 
ity of amnding section 18 of the 
Supreme Court Act 1981 and. 
meanwhile of making further 
orders under section 77 of the 
County Courts Act 1 984. 

At the same - time consid- 
eration might be given to an 
alternative approach whereby 
there would be no requirement 
of leave to appeal -in any case 
but, if the trial judge, did not 
dispense with the requirement, 
all appeals would be subject to a 
preliminary examination by a 
single Lord Justice who would 
be empowered- 10 dismiss the 
appeal if in his judgment it 
could not succeed, on full

the rapacious Mr Packer has 
quite managed to change that 

The team will be competing 
on three fronts, for the .Ashes 
- which are preeminent - 
and in two one-day com- 
petitions both of them depen- 
dent upon gimmickry but 
worth winning. There is the 
Benson and Hedges Challenge 
at Perth, arranged as a side- 
show to the yachting and 
involving England, Australia, 
West Indies and Pakistan, and 
the pyjama-dad World Series 
Cup, which takes up the last 
month of the tour and is three- 
sided, with New Zealand chas- 
ing England and Australia 
around the far-flung conti- 
nent 

So there is much work to be 
done, and an unprecedented 
amount of travelling. Just how 
hard tire cricket is will depend 
to some extent on the pilches 
The time has passed when 
these could be taken for 
granted. They used to invari- 
ably be good for baiting, 
usually very good, except after 
rain: then, being uncovered, 
they became unplayable. 

1 can vouch for that, having 
covered the last Test match in 
Australia to be played on a 
"sticky dog". It was at Bris- 
bane in December 1950, 
when, all in one day, England 
declared their first innings at 
32 for seven and Australia 
their second at 68 for seven, 
and England, batting again, 
made 30 for six before bad 
light stopped play. 

That put au end, in Austra- 
lia, to uncovered pitches. In 
more recent years, scoring has 
declined there for other rea- 


sons: visiting West Indian and 
New Zealand sides, armed 
with modern . hard-seamed 
balls, bowl much more effec- 
tively than they did. and the 
pilches are not as well pre- 
pared as they were. Perth, for 


I 


example, is unrecognizable as 
what was once the truest yet 
fastest pitch in the world. 

A factor in ail this is the 
growing season. The better it 
is the likelier the pilches are to 
be adequately grassed. Most 
Australian cricket grounds are 
also used for football Only the 
weekend before last the rugby 
league final was held on the 
Sydney Cricket Ground and 
the Grand Final of Australian 
Rules on the Melbourne 
Cricket Ground. Out of these 
centre circles, seas of mud not 
long ago. will come the pilches 
for the fourth and fifth Tests. 

f they should be good — 
and it is a long time 
since they were — En- 
gland will need to do the 
primary things a lot 
better than they have so far 
ibis year. From ihe line and 
length of their bowling and the 
efficiency of their fielding it 
will soon be possible to tell 
whether they are knuckling 
down to it They lack foe 
quality of bowling to get away 
with anything less, even 
against an Australian side 
weakened by South African 
tannings. 

Although their reputation is 
for being as good a spinning 
partnership as there is. 
Emburey and Edmonds took 
only 77 wickets between them 
last season — Emburey one 
every 12 overs, Edmonds 

every’ 14. 

Edmonds's striking-rate was 
foe poorest from among foe 
first 100 bowlers in the av- 
erages and on his only other 
tour of Australia, in 1978-79. 
all trace was lost of him once 


T! 


he had fallen out with his 
captain. Mike Brearley. 

Bui Australian batsmen 
spend so much of their lives 
teeing medium pace — there, 
too. it has become the staple 
diet - that Emburey and 
Edmonds, given the chance, 
could leaven foe England 
attack. 

hey may. I think, be 
better five-day than 
three-day bowlers. 
Some celebrated 
spinners have been. 
David Allen and Hugh 
Tavfield among them. But it is 
time they accepted that foe 
close fielder* with which they 
aim to inhibit a batsman can 
inhibit a bowler more, 
through anxiety for his. 
fielders’ safety*. 

No England captain to 

Australia can have faced a 
harder test of his maturity, 
ingenuity, authority* and skill 
than Mike Gatting — and he is 
on his first Australian tour. 
With none of the traditional 
background for the job. he 
leads a side who have lost 
eight and drawn three of their 
last 1 1 Test matches. He can 
expect neither beneficence 
from the crowds nor respite 
from the itinerary. He has 
Botham to cope with, a large 
press corps to accommodate 
and no experienced manage- 
ment behind him. More than 
anything, he may need tol- 
erance to temper his aggres- 
sion. 

Botham could almost 
equally be England's greatest 
asset as a potential liability. It 
will be largely up to him which 
it is. though not entirely. Being 
foe focus of so much atten- 
tion, he will be frequently 
provoked. How he handles 
that is going to affect every- 
one. He can as easily lose an 
initiative with his prodigal 
bowling as wrest it by his 
prodigious batting.

Fighting qualities that can turn the tide 


England have not won a Test match 


for 12 games and now, with Mike 


Gatting at the helm, they face an 
arduous task down under in 


defence of the Ashes. Simon Barnes 


talks to England’s new captain* 


about his hopes and fears for the 


challenge that lies ahead 



year ago, England cricket was entering * 
new Golden Age. A year before that, 
what was reckoned to be die worst 
England team ever to leave these shores 
went off to India . A few months ago, no 
more tfeurthan, England went to West Indies to 
play, it was reckoeed, for the world championship of 
cricket. Today they leave for Anstrafia to play fbr 
world cricket's wooden spoon. 

England have been beaten, in successive series 
this year, by West Indies, India and New Zealand. 
English cricket has never been in a worse state, as 
people say- every other year. That "worst team ever 
to leave these shores" won ft) India from ore-down, 
and the captain, David Gower, seemed to have set 
himself np for years to come. When he »lded to that 
by winning foe Ashes, he and England looked 
unbearable. ’ 

Well, David, it's a ftmny old game, as Peter West 
so penetratmgfy remarked at the time. Gower, then 
apotheosized, is now sacked. The sew captain is 
Mike Gatting: Getting who was dropped in 1984 af- 
ter twice in the same Test match getting himself oat 
leg before without playing a stroke. Once might 
have been regarded as a misfortune. A funny old 
game, as I dare say Gatting has mused to himself. 

People who ran sport like sacking people: sacking 
always looks like decisive action. Bat Gatting has - 
not reversed foe tide of defeat. He has a big job to 
take on in Aostralia and I suppose- he will get foe 
; go wrong. He — and England — coaid 
dowifo a hit of success. The habit of defeat needs to 
be broken. “It has been," Gatting said, “a year of 
leanring for me. And a yew of disappointment” ■ 

Bat tie goes to Australia full of optimism, fbr he 
an indominatable fellow. When people say, as they 
often do, that be is a good, solid individual, they are 
ng about his baOd: He is solid, stolid, 
straightforward: he. is most remarkable -for his 
complete ordinariness. He is not stylish or st r utting 
Or swashbuckling: he is jest good op reliable GatL 
His great quality is that he gets on .with things. 
Frances Edmonds wrote that while Gower ramiMed 
her of a two-year-old filly, Gatting was like a shire 
horse. 

His solid qualities have never ben seeB more 
dearly than on that disastroas four of West Indies. 


The wicket atSabma Park, Jamaica, ended foe last 
Golden Age before it had began. The virions, 
demoralizing pounding that the England cricketers 
took on it has had a powerful effect on every match 
England have played since. The prune victim was 
Gatting. 

He was hit in foe face by that great hitter of hu- 
man beings, Malcolm MarshalL He had his nose 
flattened and two enoonons Mack eyes. A piece of 
: bone was iorantaabedded in foe cricket ball: cricket 
lovely cricket, eh? He went borne to get mended and 
then came straight badt out again. 

“Getting hit in foe face wasn't as painful as 
breaking my thumb, which happened after I got 
back," he said, with fine insouciance. ‘‘In fact, I 
could not believe that foe blow in the face was not 
moreserious.lt could have hit me oa the cheekbone, 
ami that would have been a lot worse. I was 
suffering a little from shock, though. When I dune 
back to the West Indies after treatment, I was still a 
little wobbly on aiy feet, from the anaesthetic in foe 
last operation, the one when they removed the wire. 
I arrived and batted the next day. - 

“I went on to play in the Test, and I expected a 
warm reception, especially from Malcolm. And I 
got it. Bat 1 wasn't doing all that to be a hero, 1 
wasn't trying to be a knight in shining armour. It is 
just that when something happens to you like that, 
you have to say: well, do I mntf to go on playing 
cricket? If yon do, yon have to go back there and 
face it, as soon as yoo can, like someone faffing off a 
horse and remounting straight away. I wanted to go 
on playing, yon see: so it was not a matter of heroics. 
It was, if yoo like, a kind of self-interest. 

B ecanse I am so happy to play for England, 
yoo see, after all foe disapointment over 
six years.” Gatting, yon may recall, was 
one of those players who seemed unable to 
cross the gap between county and Test 
cricket He had more last chances than you'd 
believe possible. Becanse selectors found it impos- 
sible to believe that so consistent a destroyer of top 
quality bowling in-foe county championship coaid 
not do it at Test leveL Perhaps Gatting was trying 
too hard to look like an England player, instead of 
going out there to play we Mike Gatting and 
tmcomplicatedly whacking foe ball about the place. 

Cawing has never been one over-bnrdened by big 
early promise, you conld say. He never feels he has 
a God-given right to play. He needed a lot of 
courage to face a string of futures before he finally 
and resoundingly started to get it right That 
happened on foe torn- to India, when be was part of 
that “worst tearing side ever”, and ended up with a 
tour Test average of 95.83, a century that 
transformed his life and a double century that 
confirmed that he really was a top quality England 
player. 

It has not been an easy ran: now foe entire 
English team need to acquire Cutting's own ability 
to defeat defeatism. “1 want this to be a happy 
tour,” he said. “One on which all die players help

Mike Gatting: solid, stolid and straightforward 
each other. Abo, I want it to be snccessfhL Hus is 
up to the players: what are their desires? How much 
do they want to win for England? 

Bcause morale is a little low right now. Over foe 
summer, we have had disappointments, we have had 
injuries, we’ve tried new players, we kept losing 
momentum. Getting beaten by New Zealand was 
very depressing. “ 

I t makes yoo think as a captain: am I doing foe 
right things? What am I doing wrong? It is 
the same with batting: when yon have a ran of 
failures, yon are always analysing things. Yon 
wonder about your backlift, and about your 
initial movement, everything. But when yon are 
going well, you just go out there and hit it. It just 
flows. It is foe same for a captain. When things are 
going well, yon have foe right fed of things, and you 
are always naturally patting the right bloke on.” 

Above all, Gatting wants this to be a happy lour. 
The tour to West Indies was miserable: foe one to 
India is remembered by all as a happy one. It is 
quite easy to make a tour happy. Yoo just have to 
win a few cricket matches. Gatting is aware of this. 
A happy tour, then, is his dearest wish. It is a year 
since foe last Golden Age: surely it is time for 
Gatting to nsher in foe next. 


Botham: asset or liability? 

The om mission from the 
tour commit let* of hoih 
Botham and Gower needs 
correcting. Apart from being 
bad psychology, it leaves 
Emburey as ihc only selector 
id have been on a previous 
Australian tour. 

In West Indies last aimer. 
England were finished as soon 
as they began looking for 
excuses, some of which, cer- 
tainly, were ready-made. In 
Australia under Micky Sirw- 
art. the assistant manager, 
there will be no such indif- 
ference to practice and 
training. 

] like to think that foe 
atmosphere in which 
Whitaker and De Freitas, find 
themselves will be altogether 
more conducive to their 
development than it was for 
David Smith and Greg 
Thomas in the Caribbean, 

n the next four-and-a- 
half months. England 
lace a possible 72 days 
of cricket. That, of itself, 
is not excessive. Until 
the early 70s. it could he 
anything up to 100 on an 
Australasian tour. Bui because 
so much of ii now is of the 
one-day variety, the team will 
be constantly on the move. 

There arc no fewer than 32 
flights involving something 
like 25,000 miles in Australia 
alone. In the days when we 
sailed to Australia, tours, al- 
though much longer, were 
correspondingly more 
leisurely. . ’ 

I have been on them - all 
since 1950, when- we left 
. Tilbury on September .14 ppd. 
arrived in Fremantle on Octo- 
ber 9, and have seen all foe 
great changes, most of* which 
have come in the last 10 years 
and may be traced to Mr 
Packer’s anarchistic impact. 

The voyage down under 
helped to establish an under- 
standing, in many cases a 
friendship, between, players 
and press that would usually 
survive the tour. It made a 
sharp contrast to what has 
tended to happen recently.' 
The fact that this time the 
players .themselves are pre- 
vented by their contracts from 
writing or broadcasting will 
spare us for a while from 
having to put up with 
Edmonds's indiscretions and 
Botham's gratuitous criti- 
cisms of the Somerset 
committee. 

. The pen most likely to cause 
a splash may belong instead to. 
the perspicuous Mrs Edi 
moods, whose presence within' 
the party in West Indies 
earlier this year was another 
sign of foe times. ! have a 
shrewd idea of what Douglas 
Jardine would have said about 
iL But now it is merely one of 
the burdens of a captain's 
honour. 

Poor Gatting! If he retains 
foe Ashes, against an Austra- 
lian side who. though weak- 
ened by the absence of several 
good players, can only play 
better than foe)' did in En- 
gland last year, he will do well. 
It is likely to be a close thing. 

With the America's Cup 
being raced off Perth while the 
tour is in progress, it is just as 
important that foe cricket 
should be sporting and attrac- 
tive. If not. the game of bat 
and ball will be overshadowed 
by foe glamorous sport of jib 
and tack. 


Keeping England on the straight and narrow 


. Gin-swilling dodderers to 
the left, bouncer-cowed beer- 
sinkers 4o foe right and strid- 
ing like cricket’s colossus 
between them . . . England’s 
new tour manager, Peter Lush. 

Such is the picture that 
some might paint of ihe next 
four months in Australia 
where foe Test .and County 
Cricket Board's marketing 
man will been trusted with the 
role .of making England be- 
have. and perhaps even win. 
To most people, not least 
e gentlemen who have tried 
,l before, the job is about as 
delightful as a hook shot in foe 
face, but Lush is dearly an 
extraordinary character. Fur- 
ther episodes of wine, women, 
gags, drags, ducks and Frances 
Edmonds seem not to daunt 
at all 

think it's the most excit- 
ibing I’ve ever bad the 


the

privilege to be involved in." 


he 


said- 

s an ex-advemsmg roan 
oll „ a marketeer for Lord’s for 
foe past 1 2 years, he is entitled 
to carry a neat line in propa- 


As 

andi 


ganda but ft might also be that 
England have at last found the 
right man for foe job. 

* First and foremost old sins 
have been forgiven. “I'm wip- 
ing foe slate dean," he said 
firmly, implying that 
Botham's smoke rings will not 
be sent for laboratory testing 
and stray Miss Brisbanes will 
not be treated with undue 
suspicion. 

A strife-free band . 
of merry men 

And yet the England team 
which takes off today will 
be sure foeir. new theme tune 
is “Ain’t Misbehavin'.”. 

“The players are expected lo 
be. and will be, ambassadors 
for their country. They have 
got to appredate and under- 
stand that They're like foe 
Royal family.” said Lush. 

Given that foe Queen was 
treated to a smattering of eggs 
and protesters’ bare behinds 
on her last uip to the Antipo- 
des, that should make for an 



Lush: optimistic 

interesting time. But far more 
likely provocation for England 
will be the prolific feats of 
Border, ungainly antics from 
Matthews and madly partisan 
crowds. 

Lush appreciates that it 
would be unreasonable to 
expect a leeioiaL strife-free 
band of merry memo emerge 
from that Iol “OF course: 
they're going to need to let 


their hair down from time to 

time and I would say good 

luck to them. The question is 
how they do it and where they 
do iL" And foe answer, he 
ventures, is: Not in public. 

' The man who brought spon- 
sors into Test match and 
County Championship 
cricket and who helped to 
develop match-day .pro- 
grammes that alone made 
£100,000 profit for the TCCB 
- last year, seems to be quite a 
radical choice as tour man- 
ager. He did look after foe 
England B tour of Sri Lanka 
earlier this year, but from that 
to Bo thamesque 1 ad ventures is 
quite a leap. 

He avows foal he would be 
{Tattered in Australia to be 
mistaken for one of “the now 
immortalized “gin-slingers" 
but both age — he is only 47 — 
and bonhomie seem to dis- 
qualify him from the label. He 
doesnH like gin either. 

“I don’t regard myself as an 
authoritarian figure. I think 
one can overdo the discipline. 
You don't achieve . anything 


banging a table and 1 am 
an eminently reasonable 
man." he said with a beatific 
smile that very nearly reached 
his steely grey eyes. 

Marked lessening 
of distractions 

He does, on the other hand, 
appredate the age difference 
between himself and the old- 
est of foe players. “I think that 
might- be helpful in providing 
a bit of wisdom," he said. 

One sage thought that has 
occurred to him is that be- 
tween 32 domestic flights, five 
Test matches and two one-day 
competitions, with the West 
Indies and Pakistan making 
guest appearances, the En- 
gland team will be sufficiently 
occupied with cricket the, 
game: as opposed to cricket 
the soap opera. Exhaustion 
may preclude further scenes 
from Crime and Punishment- 

Should a problem arise he 
claims the strategy exists — 
coded Topsecret* for now — to 


deal with it swiftly, sensibly 
and cleanly. Any similarity- to ■ 
a beheading is 1 strictly 
coinddemaL 

Lush wholeheartedly sup- 
ports foe ban on foe writings 
of Ihe would-be journalist 
players and prefers wives to 
arrive after the first Test for 
precisely foe same reason — a 
marked lessening of distrac- 
tions. Rumours of “other 
women", as mentioned by the 
redoubtable Mrs Edmonds, he 
insisted, could be dismissed: 
“She's rather prone to 
hyperbole." 

Lush is of the optimistic 
benL He likes to think that 
England's chances of becom- 
ing an indisdpled shambles 
on tour are remote. “1 am 
looking for a cricket side that's 
going to do well and reflect 
well on foe country. But I'm 
not sure I particularly want 
them to earn a reputation for 
being gentlemen. We'd like to - 
win.” ' >

RACING 



Posy to fulfil 
her Newbury promise 


the form of the 
Sabtei Stud and Farm Stakes, 
Newbury a little under 

ftree weeks ago. looks refi- 

■ne. The winner, Milligram, 
“gs excelled again by finishing 
5“°™. in the group one Prix 
Marcel . fioussac at 
Longcfaarnp on Sunday, 
hcafen only half a length.

Newbuty, stepped up on that 

Performance by w inning - at 


By Mandarin (Michael Phillips) 


Now f am looking to Som- 
PtiSy to lend tier weight to 


the a rgument by winning the 
EBF Mahon Stakes at York 


__ Stakes at 
this afternoon in the hands of 
Steve Cauthen. 

At Newbury this half sister 
to those good horses Cistus 
and Lancastrian showed a 
good deal of promise by 
finishing fourth. However, hex- 
task today is anything but 
easy. 

Ti patina, a runaway winner 
at Brighton last time and a 
stable companion of Gold 
Fee, incidentally. Sainte Joie 
and Street Party will all make 
lift difficult for her. particu- 
larly the latter two. 

When last seen Sainte Joie 
and Street Party were both just 
pipped in photo-finishes, 
Sainte Joie by Laluche in the 
May Hill Stakes at Doncaster 
and Street Party by SanaabeD 
at Salisbury. Some might say 


that Sainte Joie boasts die best 
form because her race at 
Doncaster was a pattern event 
but Summer Posy's potential 
appeals to me and she is 
preferred. 

No matter how Street Party 
feres. Pat Eddery, her jockey, 
can take another stride to what 
looks like being his fifth 
jockeys' championship title by 
winning the Allied Dunbar 
Handicap on Granny's B ank 
whose chance is best judged 
on that good win at Newbury 
in August rather than her 
disappointing subsequent ef- 
fort at Doncaster where die 
was never in a position to win 
before ultimately finishing be- 
hind Handlebar, among oth- 
ers. 

My other principal fency at 
York is High Knowl to extend 
his winning sequence to four 
in the Little-Go Apprentice 
Stakes. 

With every winner that he 
rides Brent Thomson is 
improving his chance of land- 
ing another job riding in this 
country next season after his 
contract with Barry Hills ends 
this autumn. 

Those who have come to 
like and admire the New 
Zealand-born jockey are now 
more than hopeful that a firm 
offer or at least some son of 
bait will be on the table before 
long. 

Now I expect Thomson to 


show .again why his services 
should be in demand by 
winning the EBF Brokers 
Stakes at Lingfield Park on 
War Brave, who was one of 
the four winners that he rode 
in an afternoon at No ttingham 
recently. 

First time out, at 
Goodwood. War Brave fin- 
ished two lengths ahead of 
Native Dress when they were 
both beaten fair and square by 
Sharp Reminder. In the mean- 
time Native Dress has also 
been victorious. 

As fer as today's best bet is 
concerned, though, I am look- 
ing to Cheltenham where 
decree is napped to register 
his third victory on the trot in 
the Churchdown Handicap 
Chase in the excellent hands 
of Richard Dunwoody. 

By winning the Whitbread 
Trophy over the lug Aintree 
fences during the same meet- 
ing Glennie showed that he 
ought to be able to take the 
tricky Cheltenham jumps in 
his stride as well. 

Indeed, if he is to be taken 
seriously as a strong contender 


for this year's Mackeson Gold 
which 1 


Cup, which will be run over 
today's course and distance at 
the beginning of next month, 
he ought to be capable of 


giving weight and a beating to

Gudmore crusade 
is just beginning 


Fb- from being dismayed at 
their tosses this week ag«in«t 
the jtwo leading American 12 
Stars and Stripes *87 
and America II, the British 
remain quietly confident rhaf 
their progressive development 
programme will see them 
through to the challenge finals 
in January. 

‘‘Having experienced strong 
winds here throughout the win- 
ter ifumtbs., White Crusader is 
not optimized yet for the light 
conditions we've had so for 
during this series.** Harold • 
Ccdmore, the skipper, said yes- 
terday. Part of that programme 
includes a new keel being cast in 
Perfh this week hi time to be 
fitted . to Crusader, after this 
initial round robin series ends op 
October 20, farther develop- 
ments. In mast design and 
£75<L000-worth of new sails. 

Ian Howlett, the designer, 
aLso-retnrns this week , to con- 
tinue his tank research that has 
involved almost 1*500 runs, in 
tanks af Southampton 


the amount invested by the 17 
syndicates vying for the Gaziod- 
modetied 100 Guinea Cap is 
£200 million but judging by the 
worn dockriders and dapped- 
ont cars parked around 
Fremantle's harbour tittle of it is 
filtering through to the crews. 

There are exceptions, of 
course. If - prodded, John 
Bertrand, who steered Australia. 
II into history in 1983 and 
answered a nation's prayers, will 
admit that it has made him a 
dollar mnBanaire. Those not 
eligible for big bonuses must go 
for high salaries. 

Lawrie Smith, the former 
skipper of Peter de Savary's 
Victory *83, took home $3JM0 a

Nicknamed “the plastic

sign developed jointly by Rem 
Holland, Bruce Farr and Lau- 
rie Davidson, had a fine scrap 
against French Kiss yesterday, 
coming from behind on the 
last beat to win by 40 seconds. 

The New York Yacht Club’s 
champion, America D, gained 
the measure of Tom 
BlackaHer’s rival west coast 
entry USA H by a lmin 34sec 
margin and Heart of America 
gave the hard-pressed Aga 
Khan-backed Italian crew on 
Azznrra their fourth loss in a 
row — this time by a mere 18 
seconds. 

Others still to break their 
duck in this Louis Vuitton- 
sponsored series indude the 
French crew from Marseilles, 
sailing Challenge France, who 
trailed Canada II home by 
5 min 1 5sec, and those hapless 
Americans boldy persevering 
with the 13-year-old Coura- 
geous, who were served a 
I Omni 45sec whipping- by 
their fellow countrymen on 
Eagle — the largest margin of 
defeat recorded so far.

Donovan’s dilemma over top trio 


ft was presumed tiiat today s 
return or the successful Bn.USh 
team from ihe world champion- 
ships in Australia would mark 
the end of the years of domim- 
tion b> Vic Charles aged 32. 
Jeoir Thompson, aged -8, and 
Pat McKay, aged 29 

Ticky Donovan, the manager 
and coach, myst have- tho^ht 
hr .would be forced to seek 


By Nicolas Soames 

appears the leading trinity 
strongly wish to continue. 

“It was dear in Australia that 
there was no one to touch them, 
so (here seems no reason for 
ihem'io retire." Donovan said. 
“As far as I am concerned, they, 
with Mike Sailsm&n and Gerry 
Fleming, could be unchanged in 
two year's time." 

McKay especially, still smart- 
ing after narrowly losing bis 


yr^g wjent jo nil the void, but |n g ailcI naiiowjy lUMiig on 
w20h rheir thrrd wontf__ . . WQrld lighi-heavyweight title, is 
C“ i* by ihe lure of winning a 


European title next May hi front 
of his home Glasgow crowd. 

Despite Charles’s enthusiasm, 
his coaching activities make it 
highly unlikely that he wiD still 
compete m 1988. Nevertheless, 
the shadow cast by these lop 
veterans is so strong that per- 
haps tire younger generation 
have effectively been stifled. . 

Once they have gone, the 
heavyweights oray take time to 
regenerate a world class team, 
and this may be Donovan’s 
dilemma.

King to challenge 
in women’s open 


Betsy Kang, who 
passed the SI million marie in 
career earnings on the US 
LPGA Tour, challenges for a 
in the 1 


£9.000 first prize in the British 
women's open, which starts on 
the Royal Biriuhtie course today. 

The first orize dims in 
comparison with the S 286,000 
Miss King has won to bold 
second puce in the official 
LPGA money list tins season 
and she admitted that she has 
been encouraged to defend her 
title -because of an a ddi ti ona l 
finandaf ai i alignment. 

“There is some appearance 
money involved," Miss King 
said. “I don’t think I would have 
come over if I had been paying 
my own way with the purse not 
ail that big. But having won tire 
title last year I fdt jf wanted to 
oo me." 

- The Royal and Ancient are 
underwriting tire championship 
for the second successive year in 
an attempt to give it a new lease 
of life following the involve-

the majority of holes for this

SQUASH RACKETS; A CONFLICT OF INTERESTS AS THE NEW SEASON OPENS 

Sponsorship money dulls the senses 


By Colin McQuillan 
Squash rackets is 
competitive. It has been lat 
boxing without brain damage 
but, over the last few days, there 
have been certain .developments 
lo suggest that analogy is not 
necessarily universal. t 
The successful American Ex- 
press national league Started its 
third season on Tuesday, domi- 
nated by the introduction, of 


hire arrangements to its private 
usage in major tournaments. 

The SRA is privately peeved 
at what promises to be consid- 
erably cheaper opposition in the 
court-hire market, but publicly 
welcomes another facet in the 
ever-increasing profile 
squash. 

Cannons stretched official 
goodwill further,. however, by 
signing a private' sponsorship

ih is arena is a direct challenge to ; row John PWe^ toe 
the year-old decision of th« . president, was infuriated by d»' 
Squash Rackets Association to whmergmg of hft company's 
subsidize its own, demountable, identity under tire announce- 
tSZfiex showcourt by adding meets of the dub sponsor. 


Cannons have also decided to 
mount a major international . 
tournament on their new court 
"There is a slot cm the calendar 
just before the British Open 
Championships which we have 
nominated for," tire Cannons 
of., manager, Gary Oliver, said. 
“We would like to make our 
tournament a regular warm-up 
event to the British Open at 
. Wembley, tire equivalent of 
' Queens to Wimbledon m 
tennis.” 

A wo nderful idea, until mis- 
dj ievous journalism promotes it 
hno a rival to tire Open, 
designed to replace this pres- 
tigious tournament on the inter- 
national grand prix circuit, 

■ which itself is 


an interesting 


quantity. It exists, as yet as the 
hopeful experiment of a new 
body, tire Men's International 
Squash Tournament Council. 

Its firamework is the burgeon- 
ing Open tournament circuit, 
which MJSTC is doing much to 
enlarge but which aiu depends 
heavily upon historic national 

tournaments, such as the British 
Open. However, until such de- 
ments as protection for individ- 
ual organisations and sponsors 
are derided, the SRA chooses 
not to include its major event on 
the list

ROWING 


University 
challenge 
suits Lees 


By Jim Railton 

Just a few weeks after resign- 
ing in frustration as the co- 
ordinator of men’s international 
lightweight rowing, Mark Lees 
has landed a challenging post at 
London University. 

Lees, aged 30. will be the 
boathouse manager and chief 
coach to the University' of 
London ; Union J with a 
responsibility for men's, and 
women’s rowing at .all levels 
from college U) the university's 
top representative crews. It can- 
noi be long before the univer- 
sities of Oxford and Cambridge 
consider making similar 
appointments. 

Lees has a tough act to follow 
which will take all of-his talents 
to better- London University 
have won 21 iHenley Royal 
Regatta titles over the past 25 
years together with 20 national 
championships since. 1973 and 
their honours; board is dotted 
with European world and Olym- 
pic representatives. The univer- 
sity. more than Oxford and 
Cambridge, have been an inte- 
gral pan of international rowing 
in the last decade or so. 

In the space of five years. Ues 
has risen from relative obscurity 
to recognition as a top inter- 
national coach. He was second 
rowing coach at Shiplake Col- 
lege before becoming full-time 
professional coach to Not- 
tinghamshire County Council. 
There he coached at all levels 
and developed an elite squad. In 
this year's world champion- 
ships. his newly formed men's, 
lightweight coxless four won a 
silver and Carl Smith and Alan 
WhitwcU, who won gold in the 
lightweight double sculls, were 
members of Lees’s elite squad. 

There is a surge in student 
rowing at the major universities 
and channelling this enthusiasm 
in the right direction merits a 
full-lime post Lees has the 
necessary talent, enthusiasm 
and proven record to lift 
London University to even 
greater honours. 


DAVID MILLER. Chief 
Sports Correspondent, reports 
on Amsterdam 's bid for the 
IW2 Olympic Games 

If the me mbers, of the Inter- 
national Olympic Committee 
were to be persuaded in their 
choice of a host city for the 1992 
summer Olympic Games by 
truly intellectual criteria based 
on the concepts of Pierre de 
Coabertiu, they would be obliged 
to select Amsterdam, one of four 
candidates out of six with a 
strong socialist dement in its 
leadership. 

Ed van Tbijn. the socialist 
mayor of Amsterdam, is one of 
the most articulate of those 
invoked in the Olympic argu- 
ment — how a massively expen- 
sive. elitist even is relevant to 
the needs of the ordinary 
population. For orach of his life, 
van Tbijn feas been an amateur 
student of ideologues but be has 
come through tout confusion, in 
which some Labour councils in 
Britain now find themselves in 
relation to sport and 
competition. 

“The 1 basis of social democ- 
racy » participation, in sport as 
much as in politics." van Thijn 
says. “The greatest danger to 
socialism is in non-participation. 
In the Sixties, there was the idea 
(in Holland 1 that culture and 
sport must not be exclusive 
occupations, that we should 
concentrate, for example, not on 
natitmal ballet bin on experi- 
mental theatre. Yet (here has to 
be a two-way communication 
between grass roots and top level 
performance. 

A conception of 
social balance 

“We are against national 
fever and commercialism in 
sport, but we have to have our 
heroes. When Anton Geesink 
won the gold medal in Tokyo, 
judo in Holland hugely in- 
creased. What is sport without 
competition? When 1 go jogging, 
1 am looking at my stopwatch!** 

The reason why van Thijn is 
patting his influence alongside 
that of the government and 
commerce in Amsterdam's bid is 
that “sport for all" in Holland is 
already a reality. Six million of 
the 15 million population are 
engaged in sport mid four mil- 
lion of them belong to the 
country’s 32.000 sports associ- 
ations, ran mainly by 600,000 
volunteers. It is the highest 
concentration of sportsmen and 
women In any country. “The 
principle of participation in 
Holland is already achieved," 
van Thijn said. 

The ocher community aspect 


“The Games here have a 
conception of social balance, 
tfMnmaied by neither commerce 
nor government." van Thijn 
says. “Amsterdam is a city 
without the political complica- 
tions which have confronted the 
Olympic movement for two de- 
cades, We are a country without 
enemies. We are sot known for 
our nationalism, we don’t think 
wc are important in the world. 
We are small, stable, and mod- 
est. Wc would move away from 
gigantictsm, and. of necessity, 
our Games would be compact. 
Wc have no ebotev-"

dium and many other sports 
which Birmingham would knt,

and a new Olympic uadiupi. 

The old stadium from 1928 will 
not be used. 

It has of cunrse. local oppo- 
sition from the No Olympics

Mo Boertage has been some-

theless. to be tubby ing in (ju- 
sanne when the special, royal 
bine, two-carriage train-load of 
Amsterdam representatives

Amsterdam's other dis- 
advantages are natural modesty 
and the city's drug reputation. It 
has done leu conspicuous

did economic and technical fea- 
sibility studies first, and only 
when we got the green light from 
the government and city council 
did we publicize our plans." 


Danger for health 
and dignity 


Van Thijn believes the city is 
on top of the drug crisis, and 
smites at the suggestion, made' 
by some IOC members, tbgt-

by traffickers. “We had beihri

Turning for home 


By John Good body 


When the British Olympic 
Association chose Birmingham 
to be Britain's candidate for the 
1992 Olympics in July 1985. 
Denis Howell compared his 
city's late bid to Lester Piggott 
rounding Tauenham corner in 
the Derby. "The winning post is 
in sight and we are set to 
overtake the rivals." 

Yesterday, nine days before 
the International Olympic 
Committee name which- of the 
six cities has been successful, Mr 
Howell MP. and chairman of 
the Birmingham Olympic 
Council, said: "As we go to 
Lausanne we are up and along- 
side the favourites and ready to 
win by a neck." 

Princess Anne, the President 
of the British Olympic Associ- 
ation greeted Mr Howell’s final 
address at yesterday's BOA 
annual general meeting with'lhc 


words: "You have got a' very 
good bid. Like Lester Piggott 
\ou did not waste a lot of w ords 
but you got the job done.". . . 

Liter during her presidential 
address, she said: “If it is 
successful it will be a tremen- 
dous boost for British sport." 
Mr Howell, a former sports 
minister, who has flown three 
limes round the world and- 
spoken to all 16S other Olympic' , 
Associations said: “There are no, .- 
favourites now. ** 

Under the system to deter- - ‘ 
mine the 1992 hosts the Icasf 
successful candidate drops out. 
in each round until one -city 
obtains 51 per cent of toe votes.' 1 

Birmingham, who have spent 
£2.3 million on their hid com- 
pared with the £9 million of 
Barcelona, the favourites to 
stage the Games, will take a 
party of nearly 100 to Lausanne.

championship season in Ad- of the main straight is now a 

alnSJa mia rnube' rims rlAnio. naht.liiA.noht VTIK 


elaide in two weeks’ time. 

For every driver. Sunday’s 
Mexican Grand Prix will be a 
new experience, the first time 
they will have been called 
upon to race in the ratified 
atmosphere of a circuit 
perched on a plateau some 
7.400 ft above sea level Of the 
(4 teams which constitute the 
grand prix field, only five - 
Brabham. Ferrari, Lotus, 
McLaren and Tyrrell — were 
in Mexico on that last occa- 
sion, and. even for them, there 
is likely to be little of value in 
their circuit notebooks as they 
prepare for Sunday's race. 

In the intervening period, 
and especially during the past 
few months, the circuit has 
undeigpne a major trans- 
formation to meet mandatory 
safety standards. In particular, 
it is now lined with substantial 
barriers and fences to contain 
spectators whose enthusiasm 
in the past has often proved 


slower right-Ieft-right series, 
while at the far end of the 
circuit a very tight hairpin* 
which used to be taken at a 
crawl has been bypassed by a

series of medium-speed 
curves. The result is a reduc- 
tion in lap-length from 3.07 to 
2.75 miles. 

Coping with the high tem- 
peratures. caused by having to 
run turbo-charged engines m a 
thin-air atmosphere, is likely 
to be the major pre-occupa- 
tion for all teams during the 
days ahead, but for three 
drivers — Nigel Mansell, Nel- 
son Piquet and Alain Prost — 
this weekend is all about 
world championship points. 
Of the three, only Mansell can 
secure the title in Mexico; the 
other two can only do so by 


remaining races. . , 

Mansell is trying, with 
increasing difficulty, not to 
think about the champion- 
ship, but he may be comforted 
to know that, on two occa- 
sions in the past, the title went 
to an English driver while 
taking part in the Mexican 
Grand Prix in competition 
with his two remaining 
championship rivals. In 1964 
John Surtees became world 
champion on the last lap after 
a battle with Jim Gaik and 
Graham Hill, while in 1 968 it 
was Hill's turn to lake his 
second title ahead of Jackie 
Stewart and Denny Holme.' 

Since the last race in Por- 
tugal, the Williams team have 
carried out a programme of 
engine and chassis tests in 
Austria, where Mansell was 
considerably encouraged by 
the results. Nothing, however, 
can match testing on the 
circuit to be used for the race, 
which is why preliminary test 
facilities, due to be laid on by 
the race organizers today, will 
be such an important stage for 
everyone in the run-up to 
Sunday's race. 


TENNIS 


Loosemore shows

sixth seed. Julie Salmon, in the

championships at Telford yes-

the second round for the fourth 
consecutive year. 

Miss Loosemore. who lives 
and studies on the outskirts of 
Cardiff, travels to Slough once a 
week to work with Ken Fletcher. 
He said of her yesterday: “It's 
not often you get a 15-year-old 


She's a good athlete and has a 
good sense for the game. She has 
that little bit extra." 

Annabel Croft had an in- 
teresting story to tell after her 5* 
1, 64) win over Julie Donovan, 
aged 15. In the past three weeks, 
two of them spent in Spain at 
what she describes as “a fat 
farm". Miss Croft has taken off 
ISlbs. Excess weight had af- 
fected her tennis for two years, 
she said yesterday, and she hada 
shock when she stepped on the 
scales after the United States 
championships. So she spent 
about £2,000 on the Spanish 
slimming course, considered the 
money well spent, and is nowon 
a high protein diet of 600 
calories a day. 

In the men’s singles, three 
talented left-handers won tough 
matches. Mike Walker, the most 
exciting of the trio, was taken to 
7-5. 7-6. by the local hero. Leslie 


Eric Jelen, was pushed to 7-6, 6-

In addition to reminders that

Cementing 

student 

relations 

By David Hands 

The Combined England Stu- 
dents, rfelightpri with their suc- 
cess against Japan at Oxford on 
Tuesday — their first meeting 
with a touring team as a com- 
bined unit — will not compete 
again until April 8, when they 
play Welsh Students at a venue 
in Wales still to be arranged. 

Many of those who played 
against the Japanese will be 
ineligible then, since the student 
selectors were forced to pick on 
the basis of last season's form 
and student status. Further de- 
tails of the representative stu- 
dent season will be decided at a 
meeting later this month and 
may include a game between an 
Oxbridge XV and an English 
Students XV. 

This idea is bring pondered 
by the committees concerned 
but. in any case the English 
Students (which excludes Ox- 
ford and Cambridge Univer- 
sities) hope to have a two-match 
tour in France in the spring, 
i Deluding a game against tire 
French Students. 

Should that tour be confirmed 
it would be a “homecoming” for 
Thn Edbrook. who captained 
theteam on . Tuesday. He has 
finished at Exeter University 
and is now studying for a sports 
science degree in Bordeaux, 
where he plays for Begles- 
Botdeaux. The lanky flanker, 
who played in England's final 
under-23 international, against 
Spain last season, would still 
qualify for the side in the same 
way that Colin Laity, a student 
at the South Glamorgan In- 
stitute in Cardiff, does. 

It is also interesting to note 
that, amid the pristine freshness 
of an Iffley Road much refur- 
bished, thanks to generous 
sponsorship from Ricoh, the 
camera manufacturers, and the 
cemented association with 
Yaxnaichi (who sponsor the 
annual game against Major R V 
Stanley's XV), moves are afoot 
to start an Oxford University 
women's rugby dub, further 
evidence of expansion in an area 
which saw England stage their 
first women's international last 
season, against France. 

Timely help 
for Ulster 

Digital's involvement in Irish 
rugby passed £100.000 annually 
with the announcement in Bel- 
fast yesterday that they would 
sponsor the Ulster senior league 
for £30,000 over the next three 
seasons (George Ace writes). 

Brian Watt, branch manager, 
Belfast, revealed that Digital 
would also continue with the 
special award for the team 
scoring the most tries in the 
league. "We fed this encourages 
clubs to play more openly." 

Mr Wan also intimated that 
Digital would again be involved 
in the sponsorship of the three 
internationals at Lansdowne 
Road this season against Roma- 
nia. England and France.

RUGBY UNION: A PROBLEM WITH INJURIES ' 1 Edmonds 


Southern doubt 
for Lancashire 

By David Hands, Rugby Correspondent 


Lancashire's selectors will 
hope, tonight that Sammy 
Southern, their captain, has 
recovered from an ankle injury 
when they choose the side to 
play in the first county 
championship match of the 
-season, against Cheshire at 
Orrell next Wednesday. South- 
ern's injury was sustained in 
training and he is doubtful for 
Orrell 's John Smith's merit 
table A game with Moseley on 
Saturday. 

Several members of the 
Waterloo side, including Jim 
Syddall the twice-capped En- 
gland lock, are not available for 
Lancashire this season. Since 
Wade Dooley, the Preston 
Grasshopper, is only on the 
verge of returning from the knee 
ligament injury he sustained 


certainly have a new pairing at 
lock from that whim helped 
them to the semi-finals of last 
season's championship, spon- 
sored by Thorn EMI, when* 
Syddall was the captain. 

Their perennial rivals, York- 
shire, will announce the team to 
play Northumberland at Perry 
Park after training at Selby on 
Sunday- There has been a run on 
Yorkshire centres this season, 
John Buckton (Saracens), Steve 
BumhiU (Leicester) and Bryan 
Bailey (Wakefield), are all 
injured. 

Bumhill is to have an explor- 
atory operation on a da m aged 
knee, but Buckton is hoping to 
resume playing in a fortnight 
after suffering a kidney injury 


during a game in the first week 
of the season. Unbeaten Sara- 
cens are in the happy position of 
being able to watch, him return 
to full fitness in the second 
team. 

Yorkshire will be led this 
season by Mike Harrison, the 
England wing, who will be 
pleased to have a full hand of 
loose forwards to choose from, 
among them Peter Winterbot- 
tom, Peter Buckton — both 
Fn glgnH squad men — and 
Simon Tipping (Sale). 

Durham will be without John 
Howe, the lock who won di- 
visional honours with them last 
season. He joined Saracens this 
season and has mad** himself 
available for the London di- 
visional squad- Durham's first 
game is against Cumbria at 
Aspatria next Wednesday and 
they have gone heavily for 
mobility, since they are without 
four of last season’s successful 
forwards. Steven Harms, a 
North Waiian now playing for 
Durham City, comes in at full 
back and Steve Hackney and 
Will Carling, two former En- 
gland Schools backs, play wing 
and centre: Andy Mullins, a 
member of Tuesday’s successful 
Combined England Students 
XV against Japan, is at prop, j

Ellesmere power play 
reaps its rewards 


By Michael Stevenson 

Rydal School 10 

Ellesmere College...^. 38 

Ellesmere were far too strong 
in the forwards for Rydal, who 
showed considerable spirit but 
deteriorated defensively in the 
closing stages to lose by a goal 
and a try to four goals, two tries 
and two penalties. 

The spirit was willing for a 
tong time, but Rydal's tackling 
in the closing stages was reduced, 
to tatters. 

Ellesmere led through an early 
penalty by Marvell but irvefy 
handling by Rydal and two slick 
switches gave Willis his chance 
to exploit an overlap on the left 
and score. 


ground and fed Richards, whose 
angular, bustling run frustrated 
several would-be ladders. He 
scored under the posts and 
Marvell converted. 

A penalty try gave Rydal a 10- 
9 half-time lead. Harries, hack- 
ing on a loose ball near the 
Ellesmere line, was tackled off 
the ball and Goldsmith made no 
mistake with the conversion. 

■After the interval it was a 


different story, however, as 
Ellesmere pm on the pressure- 
with tries from Weighill, - 
Birch 01, Cooperand the power- 
ful Braithwaite. Together with 
Marvell's excellent goalkicJring, 
Ellesmere were in complete

makes 
his peace 

By John Goodbody 

Phil Edmonds, the England 
and Middlesex left-arm spinner, 
yesterday apologized to the Test 
and County Cricket Board for 
his remarks during a television 
interview on Monday's Terry 
Wogan Show and is now dear to 
fly out today with the party to 
Australia. 

“The matter is now consid- 
ered closed," said Mr Donald 
Carr, secretary of the TCCB, 
after talking to Edmonds at 
Lord's over his discussion with 
David Frost, a guest 
interviewer. 

A Board statement said Ed- 
monds apologized sincerely for 
any embarrassment which may 
have been -caused by flippant 
comments he made on 
television. 

"He reiterated a full accep- 
tance of the Board's require- 
ments set out in the tour 
contract. Further, he stressed 
that he recognized the particular 
importance of the forthcoming 
tour to Australia and that he was 
looking forward to playing a full 
. part m the -England team's 
efforts to retain the Ashes," the 
statement said. 

Edmonds was drawn into 
talking briefly about the tour 
when he and his wife, Frances, 
were chatting with Frost The 
TCCB considered these remarks 
in "very bad taste" and ordered 
Edmonds to appear .before 
them. 

All members of the tour party 
have agreed .to abide by a 
contract which rules out talking 
publicly about the tour. The 
TCCB stopped .Ian Botham 
from appearing on last night's 
Thames TV's Midweek Sport 
SpeciaL . 

During the interview, Ed-, 
monds and his wife made 
several jocular comments about 
the TCC1T5 ruling about players 
not giving interviews to the 
press and also about the rule 
forbidding players' wives to go 
to Australia for the first six 
weeks of the tour. 

When he was asked about ther 
forthcoming trip, Edmonds de- 
clined to answer but then added; 
"1 will just do a bit of telepathy 
with Frances and see what she, 
thinks. Frances, thinks we are 
coming round after the debacle 
in the West Indies and we have 
developed into a cohesive unit. 
It will be a very good tour she 
thinks.” 

Edmonds also referred to the 
fact that during the 1958-59 tour 
of Australia. Peter May. then the 
England captain ana now the 
chairman of the selectors, had 
been accompanied by his wife. 

Edmonds said _ before the 
meeting. -that he did not think 
any of his remarks could be 
construed as being in bad taste. 

Mrs Edmonds, who wrote a 
controversial book. Another 
Blood)’ Tour about last winter’s 
disastrous trip to die West 
Indies, is not covered by tire 
TCCB regulations. 

Edmonds, who in the past has 
given his comments on cricket 
to a London radio station and a 
national' newspaper, was re- 
leased from these commitments 
before the selectors met to pick 
the party and so was available 
for the tour.

Lowe s private war g? 


No one, apart from Graham 
Lowe himself; knows how badly 
the Wigaa coach wants to beat 
Australia hi Sunday's opening 
game of the 1966 Tour. Every 

English manager and coach wifi 

want to do what no team 
nw-gwi on the 1982 Toot, to 
win against the mritodbte Kan- 
garoos. With Lowe, the desire 
encompasses a deep-rooted, nag- 
ging need. 

Lowe joined Wigan at the 
start of the season, at a reputed 
figure of £40,000 a year, after 
several years as coach to the 
New Zealand international side, 
who, during the smhmwr, lost 
another senea to Australia. He 
is still smarting from those 
defeats, convinced that over the 
past few yean the Auatrafians 
have been -as much tacky , ns 
unbeatable and determtaed that 
another bane Wigan crowd top- 
ping 20,900 wifi stand at tee end 
of tiie game to salute the first 
victory by a dnh side - over 
Australia since Whines won 11- 
10 in 1978, 

Lowe has already ramptar the 
sweet taste of success over the 
Kangaroos, an intenntihnulwfn 
which catapulted him into tiie 
realm of top. coaches. It was in 
July 1983 in the second of two 
internationals. Australia had 
continued tiu£r long immunity 
from defeat- at all levels by 
beating the Kiwis 16-4 at Auck- 
land and on their bourn ground 
at Brisbane, they were expected 
to win comfortably. 

However, Lowe and Ms New

FA team up with 
Luton in fight 
against hooligans 


Luton Town's experimental 
scheme, which was over- 
whelmingly rejected by the 
Football League chairmen on 
Monday, was yesterday ac- 
cepted by the Football Associ- 
ation. The Challenge Cup 
Committee announced after a 
meeting in London that the 
dub who have banned away 
supporters will be allowed to 
compete in the FA Cup this 
season. 

The' decision, which in- 
cludes a stipulation that any 
dub playing at home against 
Luton snail also have the right 
to exclude visiting supporters, 
illustrates the wide and regret- 
table gap that divides the 
sport's two governing bodies. 
Two chairmen are in the 
uncomfortable position of sit- 
ting in the middle of iL 

Three days ago Ken Bates of 
Chelsea and Bert McGee of 
Sheffield Wednesday joined 
84 of their colleagues at Villa 
Park, where the same proposal 
was defeated by a margin of 
80-6. Luton, resisting as stub- 
bornly as the chairmen the 
temptation to bend their own 
rules, immediately withdrew 
from the Littlewoods Cup. 

Portugal’s 
brave 
new world 

Lisbon (Reuter) — 
Portugal's team for the Euro- 
pean Championship group 
two qualifying tie against Swe- 
den on Sunday will not in- 
clude anyone who played in 
the World Cup finals in 
Mexico. Absent from the 18- 
man squad are such well- 
known names as Fernando 
Gomes (forward), Carlos Ma- 
nuel (midfield) and Paulo 
Futre (winger). 

Of the 22 who represented 
Portugal in Mexico, eight were 
banned from the team for 
their part in a strike over pay 
and bonuses days before the 
start of the World Cup finals 
in which Portugal felled to 
survive the first phase. The 
remaining 14 declared them- 
selves “unavailable for 
selection” in solidarity with 
their banned Mexico team- 
mates. 

Reluming to the squad after 
a long absence is Manuel 
Fernandes, the veteran cap- 
tain of Snorting, who was left 
oul of tine World Cup team 
because of a dispute with Jose 
Torres, the former manager. 
Other former internationals in 
the 18 selected by Ruy Seabra, 
the new manager, are Mario 
Jorge, Sheu and Nunes. 

Also returning to the squad 
after a long absence is Alberto, 
aged 30, the Belenenses de- 
fender.

By Stuart Jones, Football Correspondent 

Bates, McGee and Smith 
went to Lancaster Gate yes- 
terday, where Luton’s case 
received, as expected, a more 
sympathetic hearing. Bert 
Millichip, the chairman of the 
FA. and Ted Croker, the 
secretary, had already stated 
that they were in fevour of the 
club’s individual stand against 
hooliganism. 

The other 1 1 members of 
the committee, including .Ar- 
thur McMullen, who is the 
vice-chairman, all represent 
county associations. Their 
view, mercifully, is more gen- 
eral than that of the chairmen, 
many of whom are outstand- 
ing only for their egotistical 
natures and self-centred opin- 
ions. Luton gained the support 
of the majority. 


“The Football League also 
have decisions to mak e but I 
hope that this will cot cause a 
rift between us. The League 
operate their competitions 
without interference and l 
hope they give us the same 
privilege. It may seem that the 
decision is unfair to some 
dubs and that is why we have 
given them the opportunity to 
exclude Luton’s supporters.” 


“We are in an extremely 
difficult position,” Croker 
said, “but the overriding 
consideration, as far as we are 
concerned, has to be hooligan- 
ism. That is the one criterion 
on which we have to make a 
judgement these days and, as 
Luton’s scheme is concerned 

with crowd control, we had to 
allow it. 


Richard Tracey, the Min- 
ister for Sport, was “pleased 
that the FA have given their 
consent. It is important that 
the scheme be tested outside 
League matches because only 
then win we be able to judge 
its usefulness. I am grateful to 
the FA for their positive 
approach to the fight against 
hooliganism.” 


The committee also granted 
Oldham and Preston per- 
mission to stage FA Cup ties 
on their artifical pitches. In 
pointing out that the ruling 
will apply only until the end of 
the season, Croker stressed 
that “it should not be implied 
that the surfaces concerned 
will be acceptable in the 
future".

Italy’s Cup squad 
face tax inquiry 


M Famandes. 


Rome (Reuter) — Italy’s 
1982 Worid Cup squad will 
soon be given back their 
passports, withdrawn last 
month during an investigation 
into alleged tax evasion, ju- 
dicial sources said today. 

All 22 players have been 
warned that they are under 
investigation over tax returns 
filed in 1983, regarding pay- 
ments from a clothing sponsor 
at the Worid Cup finals in 
Spain the previous summer. 

The sources said a mag- 
istrate investigating the 
charges would go to France in 
the next few days to take 
evidence from a repre- 
sentative of the French spon- 
sor. Afterwards the players’ 
passports would be returned, 
they added. 

Players who are members of 
teams involved in European 
Cup competitionshave had to 
apply to Italian courts for 
special permits to travel 
abroad for matches since the 
passports were withdrawn. 

The squad had also faced a 
trial in December on charges 
of breaking Italy's currency 
laws by not converting the 
payment into lire within a 
month of returning home. But 
sources said recent changes in 
the law meant that the players 
were now likely to escape trial. 

• ZURICH (Reuter) - Swiss 
first division club, FC Basle, is 
facing bankruptcy unless a 
massive cash injection is 
forthcoming, the interim dub 
president, Peter Suter, said 
yesterday. 


“Our coffers are completely 
empty. There is no cash flow. 
Our debts are around a mil- 
lion francs (£400,000). We 
need another half a million 
francs (£200.000) to survive 
till the end of the year if we are 
to avoid bankruptcy,” he said. 

Suter told a Press con- 
ference that in response to an 
appeal a 150,000 Swiss franc 
(£45,000) loan from a leading 
Basle bank had enabled them 
to pay players and officials 
their outstanding September 
salaries. The dub. with three 
Swiss internationals in the 
ranks blames falling atten- 
dances for itsplighL 

But many in football circles 
attribute the crisis directly to 
the club splashing out substan- 
tial sums for new signings it 
could ill afford. . - 

• MADRID (Reuter) — The 
Real Madrid defender, Anto- 
nio Maceda, whose Worid 
Cup campaign with Spain was 
cut short by a recurring knee 
injury, has undergone a third 
operation to try to cure the 
problem, a clid) spokesman 
said today. 

The international, aged 29, 
underwent surgery yesterday 
on his right knee after doctors 
decided it had reacted badly to 
light training. They said after- 
wards he could be fit to play 
again before the end of the 
season. Maceda had his first 
operation last March and 
returned to the side in time to 
help them win the league 
championship and UEFA 
Cup. 


Celtic get 
Kiev 
all clear 

Celtic will fulfil their Euro- 
pean Cup fixture with Dy- 
namo Kiev in the Soviet 
Union on November 5 (Hugh 
Taylor writes). “We have been 
assured that there is no danger 
to the players following the 
radiation effects from the 
Chernobyl disaster.” Jack 
McGinn, the Celtic chairman, 
said last nighL 

The players were told that 
two Bulgarian sides had 
played recently in Kiev and 
had made no complaint. “In- 
deed, we have received total 
assurances that there will be 
no ' danger ” the chairman 
added. “The dub doctor has 
spearheaded our investiga- 
tions and he has been safisfi 
by the experts,, who have 
answered all of his points.” 

Celtic are expected to take 
their own food, although they 
have been told, that radioactiv- 
ity levels in the atmosphere 
around Kiev were extremely 
low. Action to substitute the 
water supply with water from 
an uncon laminated region 
had been taken. The only 
remaining source of concern 
was the consumption of lo- 
cally produced food. 

The Russian authorities 
have slated that they are 
bringing food into the area, so 
they are not expected to object 
to Celtic bringing in their own 
hampers, as they did when 
they played Kiev in 196&

burn forward, has been called 
into Northern Ireland's squad 
for the European Champion- 
ship game against England at 
Wembley next Wednesday.

SNOOKER 


Higgins and Griffiths 
on collision course 


Alex Higgins, winner in 
1972 and 1982, has been 
drawn to meet Terry Griffiths, 
another former champion, in 
the second round of the 
Embassy world championship 
in Sheffield next April. Three 
times in the past Griffiths has 
beaten the controversial Irish- 
man at the Crucible Theatre — 
twice in the second round and 
once in the quarter-finals. 

Last season Griffiths beat 
Higgins 1 3-12, the fifth time in 
10 years the Irishman had lost 
a worid championship match 
by the odd frame. In the first 
round Higgins is scheduled to 
meet another Welshman, Cliff 
Wilson, with Jim Wych. of 
Canada, likely to be Griffiths’s 
opponent 

Dennis Taylor, the 1985 
world champion, is in the 
same half of the draw as Joe 
Johnson, the defending cham- 
pion. with their paths ex- 


pected to cross at the semi- 
final stage. 

Johnson, who feces a pos- 
sible first-round match against 
Eugene Hughes, now plans to 
cut down on bis charity work 
to concentrate on the task in 
hand. He said: “I have to start 
saying no to many of the 
enquiries. It will be difficult, 
but I must start practising, 
more if I am going to win 
matches. -I need four to five 
hours a day, but at the 
moment 1 am lucky to get that 
amount in a week.” 

Hughes, a beaten semi- 
finalist in the BCE Inter- 
national at Stoke last week, 
will meet Johnson providing 
he wins his fbunh-rouna 
qualifying match at Preston. 
The Preston stages will be held 
from March 26 to April 4, with 
the championship moving to 
Sheffield from April 18 to 
May 4. ...

Des Drummond, the Leigh 
and Great Britain winger, has 
been placed on the transfer list 
at a fee of £100.000. Drum- 
mond has played for Leigh 
this season since returning 
from a summer spell with the 
Sydney club. Western 
Suburbs. 

The fee is £20.000 less than 
Drummond’s asking price 
when be was last listed six 
months ago. TheLeigh chair- 
man. Brian Sharpies, said: 
"We could not meet 
Drummond's demands and he 
hasn't returned to the club as 
we hoped” 

The club is still interested in 
a swap deal the for Great 
Britain captain, Hany Pinner, 
listed by St Helens at £95,000.

EQUESTRIANISM 

Wheeling 
a deal 
for Pyrah 

By Jenny MacArthnr 

Malcolm Pyrah is now the 
proud owner of a Range 
Rover after winning his: battle 
with the organizers of the 
Horse of the Year Show. 

r i claimed the £16,000 car 
winning the Raffles Clas- 
sic on Monday night 
The dispute arose when 
Pyrah won a 15-horse jump- 
off against the . dock on 
Towenands Anglezarke. He 
assumed that entitled him to 
the car as die rules state the car 
would be awarded to “the 
rider who completes die first 
round of any two Raffles 
Classic competitions without 
incurring'any faults and wins 
die Raffles Classic at -the 
Horse of iheYearShow.” — 
But the org aniz ers, had no 
intention at first of awarding 
Pyrah the. car; :RaynKtod 
Brooks-Ward, tire managing 
director of British Equestrian 
Promotions who organized 
the Stow, said that the 
“spirit” of the rales had 
always been that the two dear 
rounds had to be jumped at 
qualifiers before Wembley. 

Pyrah, after taking legal 
advice, lodged an appeal with 
tire committee. A meeting was 
hastily convened yesterday 
and the verdict was unani- 
mous: Pyrah had fulfilled the 
conditions. A member of the 
committee said yesterday that 
next year more attention 
would be paid to the wording 
of the schedule. 

Meanwhile, tire frenetic 
programme in tire Wembley 
Arena continued with tire 
Austin Rover stakes which 
was won, after a big and 
difficult jump-off course, by 
Peter Charles on Cedi Wil- 
liams' Merrimandias. The 
Irish-bred gelding, aged nine, 
was one of only four horses 
out of the 15 in tire jump-off 
who went dear. Charles said 
he thought the jump-off 
course, designed by Alan Oli- 
ver, was “too big for what they 
were jumping for" — a ref- 
erence to the £300 first prize. 

Later Jamie Fry rode with 
an experience which belied his 
17 years with a well-judged 
dear when winning the Basil- 
don Bond young riders 
championship of the year on 
Fallon.

England falter as 
Soviets hold firm 


By Sydney Frisian 


England. 


Soviet Union. 


England suffered their first 
defeat in group A of the World 
Cup hockey tournament at 
WiUesden yesterday, losing 
some of their pride and 
prosperity to the Soviet Union 
whose solid defensive tactics, 
carried them through a bard 
match. The match was similar 
to the one seen at the same 
venue last year when the 
Soviets scored an early goal 
and hung on grimly to their 
advantage. They did the same 
thing this time, except that 
their decisive goal was ob- 
tained midway m the second 
half and, once that advantage 
was gained England found 
their defence most difficult, to 

breakdown. ' . - 

England now -have two 
tough matches to /face — 
against a revitalized 'Pridsteh 
Side, on Saturday, and- Tire 
Netherlands on Monday. 
Now, the road' to tire semi- 
finals looks much less dear. 

There waS an early scare for 
England with Taylor diving to 
save from Deputatov_ Later, 
he was called upon to save 
from Goncharov at a short 
comer but after that, England 
held possession for long spells 
and continued to dominate 
the first half The Soviet 
defence offered stubborn resis- 
tance, mainly through 
Beliakov, who seemed not to 
appreciate the scientific 
possibilities of the game, get- 
ting away with several in- 
tentional breaches of tire law 
for which, England thought, 
heavier penalties should have 
been imposed. 

Kerly and Batchelor, 
establishing a thorough under- 
standing of one another’s 
methods, harried and tor- 


mented the Soviet defence 
without much luck. But the 
most blatant foul by the Soviet- 
defenders .was committed in 
tire 20th minute when Keriy’s 
.stick was held down in the 
circle. England's hopes of 
being awarded a penalty 
stroke Were dashed wnen-the 
umpire signalled only a short
