Sir Geoffrey Howe, the 
foreign Secretary, . yesterday 
intensified the 'attacks on 
Labour's defence policy, 
which the Government has 
resolved to make the 
centrepiece of the next general 
election campaign, with the 
most savage assault yet on Mr 
Neil Kinnock. 

He warned the Conser- 
vative conference in Bourne- 
mouth: “Last week Mr 
Kinnock said that he would' ' 
not let his country die for him. 
The danger is that it could die ^ 
because of him." 

He accusal the Labour 
leader of a willingness to allow 
Britain's defences to be weak- 
ened which made him “unfit

Mr Cedi Parkinson, with his wife Aim at 
Bournemouth yesterday, returned to a 
Conservative Party conference for the first 
tune since he resigned three years ago. The 
appearance of the former party chairman at 
the conference was an important step 

towards Mr Parkinson's eventual return to 
the Government if the Conservatives win the 
next election. Mr Parkinson made dear 
yesterday that he did not expect to come 
back to the Government before the election 
or to have a special role in the campaign.

new fear 

By Nicholas Beestoo 

There were fears yesterday 
of a new diplomatic crisis 
between Britain and Saudi 
Arabia, after a Scottish news- 
paper published in frill , a 
confidential Foreign Office 
dispatch critical of Saudi cus- 
toms and habits. 

Although the Foreign Office 
tried to dampen down the 
effects the document could 
have on bilateral relations. 
Jedda has yei to respond to its 

The Foreign Office has or- 
dered an immediate inquiry 
into how ihe confidential dis- 
patch. from Sir James Craig 
the former ambassador to 
Sauda Arabia, to Sir Geoffrey 
Howe, the Foreign Secretary, 
fell into the hands of ihe press. 

The Saudi Embassy in 
London said that the mailer 
was a British affair and that it 
could not comment “because 
the document has not been 

The Foreign Office by its 
own inference has mode it 
dear the dispatch is genuine 
and forms part of a dispatch 
by Sir James shortly before he 
left his post in 1984. 

The Government is seeking 
to prevent a repetition of the 
furore caused in Saudi Arabia 
by the screening of the tele- 
vision documentary. “Death 
of a Princess”, after which Sir 
James helped mend relations 
with Britain. 

This time the Government 
is concerned over two issues: 
next month's visit by the 
Prince and Princess of Wales 
and multi-billion pound Tor- 
nado aircraft deaL 

The incident came to a head 
early yesterday morning when 
the Glasgow Herald published 
the embarrassing text, a day 
after the High Court m 
London banned its publica- 
tion in the New Statesman 

The document is a personal 
account by Sir James which 
discusses Saudi attitudes to- 
wards work, religion and for- 
eigners. Some of the remarks 
are critical of the Saudis, 
although the general thrust of 
thedrspAtch is not derogatory. 

Mr Arnold Kemp, the 
Hertld's editor, said he had 
taken legal advice before 
publication and that the ruling 
in London stopping the New 
Statesman from publishing 
the document had no bearing 
in Scottish courts. He would , 
not disclose how the news- 
paper obtained the dispatch.

President Reagan said yes-

ments. and then give speeches 
about the spirit of Reykjavik. 

“Wc ha\e serious problems 
with the So\ici position on a

He said his goal at the two- 
day meeting was peace and 
freedom throughout the

President Reagan said it

have large staffs with them nor 
is it planned that they sign 
substantive agreements.

Curb on gas share sales 

Foreigners will be pre- 
vented from cashing in 
quickly on British Gas shares 
if they are allowed to buy them 
in the November flotation. 

British Gas may allow small 
overseas investors to join 
foreign institutions in ally- 
ing for shares, but its advisers 
want to avoid the immediate 

profit-taking that came after 
the British Telecom sale. 

Banks taking part in any 
overseas share offering, which 
is expected to account for up 
to 20 per cent of the equity, 
will have to make an active 
market in British Gas shares. .

Aberfan fund hit 

The costs of a village community centre set bp as a me- 
morial to the Aberfan disaster 20 years age are so great 
that the trustees have been told the endowment fond wiU 
disappear (Tim Jones writes). 

The community centre, which includes a swimming pool, 
is funded from interest earned on the £25(1000 which 
remains invested. But tint return is not sufficient to meet 
the costs and the trustees fear they will have to start draw- 
ing on the capital. 

The trustees will meet Merthyr Tydfil Borough Council 
today to ask for help and to discuss the future of the centre, 
which was built wife £35(1000 from the disaster fond. . .

by Sir Christopher Lawson, 
director of the special services

Sir Christopher said: “After 
four days, we have had more 
money arid more new mem- 
bers than we had in the whole 
of September^ . 

“It didn't happen after the 
Liberal conference, but im- 
mediately after Labour the' 
responses shot sky high.” 
Describing the reaction as 

“quite extraordinary”. Sir 
Christopher said that the La- 
bour conference had evidently 
triggered a “critical area” in 
the minds of the-25 to 34 age 

Research will now be car-

Battle lines drawn 
for defence cash 

By Mkhael Evans, Whitehall Correspondent 

Mr George Younger, Sec- 
retary of State for Defence, is 
on a collision coarse with the 
Treasury over his request fix’ 
extra money, believed to be 
between £300 and £400 mfl- 
lion, to maintain defence 
spending next year. 

Last week h was suggested 
in Whitehall that the expen- 
diture battle between the Min- 
istry of Defence and the 
Treasury could be resolved 
soon without having to refer 
the matter to the so-called star 
chamber of ministers which is 
expected to be set up next 

It was even proposed that' 
Mr.-Younger would be asked 
to be a member ofthe special 
committee which each year 
has settled differences be- 
tween spending departments 
and die Treasury about public 
expenditure levels. 

But Mr Younger has not 
been, invited to join the star 
chamber which noli be headed 
by Lord Whitdaw because he 
bas-fafled-to resolve his fund- 
ing-problem in -bilateral fas- - 
cussions with Mr John 
MacGregor, Chief Secretary to 
the Treasury. 

Mr Younger, faced with the 
reality of a no-growth budget 
for the first time instead of the 

warning system, which has 
now become a choice between 
the British Nimrod and the 
American Boeing company's 
E-3 Awac 

IfNimrod foils to meet RAF 
specifications, Mr Younger 
will be forced to go for the 
Awac alternative and that 
could cost about £250 million 
more than Nimrod. 

The star chamber delibera- 
tions wil] have to be com- 
pleted in time for Mr Nigel 
Lawson, the Chancellor, to 
make his statement on public 
expenditure next-month.

26 per cent of mose wbofave

counselling scheme Hwlgnml 
to inoride motivation for those 
who may initially have lost 
hope of ever finding a job. 

By mid-September, the 
•spokeswoman said, about 
260,000 .people had taken 
advantage of the coonselUng 
-part of the scheme. Of those 
16 pm- cent had been submit-

while another 10 percent had 
bee© referred to employers. 
More than 80 per cent had 
been offered positive help, of

The MSC. has recruited an 
extra 2,000 staff to carry 
through the Restart pro- 
gramme and the spokeswoman 
said that they would be able to 
cope wife the additional tar- 
den of extending it to include 
all those unemployed for six

Farmhouse massacre 

Bamber ‘hated his mother 9 

The story of J eremy 
Bamber’s hatred for his 
mother unfolded yesterday in 
the courtroom where he is 
standing trial for her murder. 

On the fifth day of bis trial 
at Chelmsford Crown Court, 
the jury was lokl that Mr 
Bamber. aged 25, would never 
speak to her because he re- 
sented her for sending him to 
boarding school. 

Mrs Mary Mugford, the 
mother of his former girl 
friend, Julie, said he could 
never undersiandwhyshebad 
adopted him only to sentf him 
away. ■. . ... 

Site toid- the jury flat Mr 
Bamber. who .-has. .denied 
shooting dead his adoptive 
parents, Nevill and June; his 
stepsister, Sheila Caffell, and 
her twin sons at their farm- 
house in Essex, spoke often of 
his mother’s lack of affection. 

And on one occasion. Mrs 
Mugford alleged, he told her 
that his mother, wbo was 
w arden at the village church of 
Tolleshunt D'Arcy where the 
family lived, was thinking of 
changing her wflL 

Instead of her estate going 
to him and his sister, it would 
all go to Sheila'S children, 
Nicholas and Darnel, aged six, 
on whom she doted. 

She claimed that Mr 
Bamber had told her. that his 
mother would allow no opin- 
ions in the household. This 
meant that Sheila, aged 27, the 
London fashion model who 
police originally believed was 
responsible for the massacre at 
White House Farm, behaved 
“like a frightened rabbit” 

By Michael Horsneil 
Mis Mugford said Mr 
Bamber hated his mother. ' 
She said : “He resented her 
for sending him away to 
boarding school. He couldn't 
understand why she had 
adopted him only to send him 
away. He said she never 
showed him any affection.” 

Mr Bamber allegedly spoke 
of his- mother as a religious 
maniac and Mamed her for 
makin g his stepsister mad. 

During - one conversation 
Mis Mugforri had with him in 
her kitchen be -made it dear 
that he wished to dispose of 
his parents' effects, keeping 
just one memento - — the 
portfolio^ of 

Mrs Mugford said: “Jeremy 
rind iked his - mother im- 
mensely and I felt be was more 
affectionate to ore He used to 
call me mummy all the time. 
He offered me his mother's 
small car which had been 
bought that Christmas. This 
was just after the shooting.. A 
list had been drawn up and he 
was going to keep -no me- 
mentoes, which I thought very 
strange. Hesaid he wanted to 
sell everything, and. that it was 
a pity I had just bought a car.” 

On other occasions he said 
bis mother was absolutely 
mad and confirmed her plan 
to change the will m one chat 
they had during Easter 1985 
only a few months before the. 

Mrs Mugford said: “He told 
me she was thinking' of change 
ing her wilL I asked ‘Do you 
mean m favour of Sheila and 
the boys', and he replied, ‘No, 

just in favour of die boys*. He 
said thar she doted on them .” 

Earlier her daughter. Miss 
Julie Mugford, who was Mr 
Bamber’s girl friend at the 
time of the massacre denied 
that she -had done all in her 
power to blacken bim, 

Under cross-examination 
by Mr Geoffrey Rivlin, QC 
she said: “I ain only telling 
you the things that Jeremy 
told me. I don't need to add 
anything. I don't like saying 
any of fofc- 1 bate ft.” 

.Turning to the evens 
shortly before the murders in 
which the prosecution has 
aDeged that Mr Bamber stran- 
gled rats at his parents* form- 
house to test his willpower 
before allegedly murdering 
them she. spoke about mari- 
juana which she said he had 
grown at the form. 

Miss Mugford, aged 22, who 
was asked by Mr Rrvfin how 
he could have caught the rats, 
replied: “I don’t know. But I 
remember be was laughing 
about how the rats had eaten 
his marijuana and that it had 
slowed them down.” 

She admitted that on occa- 
sions she joined Mr Bamber in 
smoking marijuana. 

Miss Mugford denied that 
m the weeks after the killings 
she had comforted her former 
boy friend. 

She raid: “I questioned him 
and asked him what had 
happened. If that is comfort- 
ing him, so be it You ask him 
how affectionate I was. I 
didn't like him even to touch

Lorry that killed three 
‘braked gradually’ 

A driver whose lorry 
knocked, down and killed 
three girls as they walked 
home from school told an 
inquest at Maidstone. Kent, 
yesterday that be thought he 
had driven over roadworks. 

“I could not understand 
how. it happened,” Mr Eric 
NichoU. aged 32,. said in a 
statement Relatives, of the. 
girls wept as the statement was 
read out: 

Lieanne Berry, aged seven, 
Sadie Wilkins.' aged and 
Marie Slone, aged 10, all from 
Maidstone, died when the 
lony hit a group of children 
and mothers as they left All 
Saints Primary School at 
Hayle Road on May 20. 

Mr NichoU said his trailer 
began to ‘judder and bounce” 
on the .wetsUppeiy road as he 
approached an-S-beBd and he 
applied an exhaust brake, a 

system which usually results 
in gradual braking. 

“Quickly I was off the 
exhaust button,” Mr NichoU. 
said. “I fell the back of the 
trailer lift but I am not sure on 
what side: 

. “I quickly looked in both 
mirrors and thought I must 
have gone over some road- 
works. At no time did I feel I 
was going too fast.” 

Police Constable Edward 
Edwards showed the jury, a 
video of the way trailers' 
wheels lock when the exhaust 
brake is applied, using exces- 
sive air pressure.

could help 
cut costs, 
NHS told 

By Jill Sherman 

Regional health authorities 
have been asked to draw up 
information plans to ensure 
that National Health Service 
resources are used more 

Launching a national 
framework for NHS manage- 
ment information, Mr Mi- 
chad Fafrey, director of the 
NHS management board, 
called on regions to set up 
their own strategies based on 
national guidance to provide, 
cost and monitor information 
in their districts . 

Better information could 
reduce waiting times in hos- 
pital outpatient departments 
and ensure that doctors and 
nurses were given the nec- 
essaty support to provide 
efficient patient care, he said. 

Mr Fatrey. director of plan- 
ning and information technol- 
ogy, said that doctors and 
nurses should play a greater 
part in management decisions 
and needed to have the nec- 
essary information io run 
their departments. 

Hie health service should 
be spending at least £1 billion 
on information technology 
each year, representing I per 
cent of the budget for hospital 
and community health ser- 
vices although no new money 
woold be provided, he said. 

Dr David Hewen. district 
medical officer at Winchester 
Health Authority, and a mem- 
ber of the board’s information 
advisory group, said that doc- 
tors had no idiea of the cost of 
admitting a patients or the 
separate cost of pathology 
tests. X-rays or nursing re- 

“Clinicians should be 
responsible for these re- 
sources, but at present they 
lack the necessary financial 
information,” he said. 

An information system 
could ensure more efficient 
scheduling in outpatient 
appointments. Dr Hewett 
said, and reduce unnecessary 
and frustrating waits because 
ambulances faded to transport 
patients at the right time. 

Computer terminals in 
wards would also stop the 
chaos of someone physically 
having to check if there were 
any empty beds to admit a

relayed by computer to the

He sat down to a long and 

rapturous staffiding ovation. 

Mr Lawson said that after 
last week's conference in 
Blackpool they now knew 
Labour's programme. 

They proposed massively 
higher spending, massively 
higher borrowing and higher 
taxes for everyone. 

They knew where that 
would lead. It would be back to 
the rake's progress of the 
1970s, with inflati on at 27 per 
cent ft would- mean im- 
trammened trade union power. 
“No wonder the financial mar- 
kets have been nervous" he

keep borrowing firmly undo 1 

“Unlike all the other par- 
ties. who would increase-tax- 
ation, our aim is to reduce the 
burden of taxation fin all the 
people. Blit we will never take 
rislcs with inflation. So we wiH 
reduce taxation as and when it 
is prudent to do so, just as we 
have been doing." 

Over the past seven years 
they had achieved more than 
any other government, but 

there mis still -the challenge of 

As a result of what they bad 
done, youth unemployment 
was now below the Common 
Market average and h was 
falling. That still left the 
agonizing proJMem of tong- 
term unemployment.' 

Since the Government was 
re-elected in 1983 the number 
of jobs to Britain had grown by . 
almost a miHfon. more than iu . 
the whole of the rest .of the. 
EEC put together. That- 
showed they were on the right 

The other modern scourge 
was inflation. Under Labour it 
had averaged 15 per cent. 
Today, for the first time in 
almost 20 years, inflation was 
below 3 per cent. 

The defeat of inflation was 
not just a political and eco- 
nomic victory. It was a pro-

havoc inflation had wrought

unprecedented fall in inflation

of sternly g r owth . They were

The initial impact of the ofl 
price collapse meant that this 
year's growth worldwide and 
in Britain weald be below 
average. But the outlook for. 
next year was .significantly; 

Meanwhile, output in Brit- 
ain was at record levels.- 

Exports were at record lev- 
els; business investment was at 
record levels; manufacturing 
productivity - was at record 
levels; and living standards 
were at record levels. Their 
task was to maintain and 
improve that record. 

That meant . maintaining a 
climate in which indnstry. 
could thrive. The total number. 
of businesses had. been grow-, 
ing at tite rate of 550 a week.' 
That was the wave Of the -, 
future. . . 

There -could be no peater’ 
testimony to the success and 
soundness of then’ policies 
than the strength and resil- 

ience the economy had shown 
since' 1983. At the heart of the- 
Conservativev*»on-of society 
was the desire- tb. create a 
property-owning democracy. 
The first step along that road 
was the' sharp ‘extension of

The conference carried by 
an overwhelming majority a 
motion, to which the Chan- 
cellor replied, applauding the 
sharp reduction in inflation 
and urging the Government to 
continue its policies. 

Mr Stephen Reid, Rho- 
ndda. moving it. said that the 
reduction in inflation was a 
remarkable achievement. 

They had to remember that 
at the next election there 
would be voters who would 
not be able to remember 
Denis Healey causing infla- 
tion to rise to 27 per cent. So 
Conservatives had to tell them 
what life would be like. 

It was not government or 
companies that created jobs. It 
was customers. 

Mrs Angela Browing, Cro- 
we and Nantwich, complained 
that high rates were- a dis- 
incentive to businesses and 
industry and therefore wealth

said, should start at £100,000,

Labour’s ‘gift’ 
on defence v 

Thar the jparty was further 
encouraged by the Labodir- 
confereoce raayv at . first; 
glance, seem a fittie strange. 
Labour was widely judged to 
have enjoyed a success fa 
Blackpool last week because 
the conference displayed 
.greater unity than for ntaay 
years. . 

But the Conservatives are 
convinced that' Labour defence 
policy -now presents them with 
an opportunity .foot could be 
derisivefafoe nextetoctimt. Jfc 
is nog jut font Labour; has - 
confirmed ite cofflmftment 
unilateralism. Mr/ Kiutotik 
has done so with such enthu- 
siasm and in such stark terms 
that the parties seem to be 
conspiring to pot defence right 
at the centre of the political 


This is of doable benefit to 
the Conservatives. Not only, 
does it provide, there with an 
issue of sudi overriding im- 
portance that&jraght to swfag' 
jrotes to -tbenu lt also has a 
[ u nif yin g effect upon Conser- 
vatives themselves. 

When a party has held 
'office for more than seven 
years there is always the 
danger that it will lose its 
Campaigning edge. 

Bnt Labour’s defence policy 
has persuaded all Conser- 
vatives tint they had better not 
lose next time. It has green a 
crusading fervour to then- 
electoral plans. 

These plans have been very 
much in evidence this week. 
The succession of ministerial 
speeches has been something 
ofa trial ran for the manifesto. 
The connecting thread be- 
tween them Iras not been 
doctrinal. It has not bear a 
genera! emphasis npon 
extending individual choice or, 
indeed, npon any other broad 
concept olf government What 
has distinguished all the min- 
isterial speeches has been' a 
determination to look to die 
future on an essentially prag- 
matic basis. 

One minister after another 
is been oatlining his pro- 
posals for Anther development 
or for relieving public anxi- 
eties in his field. The advan- 
tage of this approach is that it 
is related directly to the 
public's concerns rather Hum 
to the party's theories. 

There has been nothing 
from ministers this week so 
radical as to frighten foe 
electors teJfcit the danger that 
does exist with this kind of 
pragmatic approach is that it 
liable to be expensive. 
Responding to public wishes 
tends' tocost money. 

The immediate budgetary 
implications rtf the rations 
commitments made this week 
are not dear. Nigel Lawson 
was emphatic in his speech 
yesterday that foe Govern- 
ment would not" engage in an 
irresponsible spending spree." 
He promised to keep borrow- 
ing firmly under contra L 

Threat of full 
sterling crisis 

He has to emphasize this, as 
he most know that nothing 
cqqM so swfftiy lose foe 
ground gained in this con- 
ferenceas a foil-blown sterling 
crisis with' sharply - - rising 
interest rates^But l do wonder 
bow mtich scope he will now 
have for farther cats in income 

Altogether, though, this has 
been a good week for the 
wvatives* because more 
tlranf eterr' hefhre there has 
been' the ^impression of a 
ministerial 'team. Sir Geoffrey 
Howe yesterday made his 
finest cDofereuce speech, bnt 
what will Unger in my memory 
will be tire- cumulative effect 
more than any individual min- 
isterial contribution. 

This means that Mrs 
Thatcher's speech today will 
not-be-so-critical as it might 
have been. The party should 
be thankful for that because it 
can no longer afford to rely on

This contrasts sharply with 
the larger societies, many of 
which showed arrears well

shire suffered, particularly as a 
resuh of the effects of the 
miners* strike, many of whom 
are still trying to recover from 
accumulated ar re ars . We al- 
lowed the miners to fell 
behind in payments, but we 
bad very lime choke.” 

The Yorkshire experience 
highlights the growing politi- 
cal sensitivity to society poli- 
cies on arrears and reposses- 
sions. At present most buil- 
ding societies go out of their 
way to assist borrowers who 
have fallen behind in repay- 
ments, and attempt to re- 
possess only as a last resort 

But the growth in com- 
petition, and the consequent 
increase on lenders* profit 
margins, could force them to 
take a much harder line.

Tbe difficult housing and 
rehousing problems involved 
for local authorities, bousing 

associations and voluntary 
bodies when couples, married or 
unmarried, separate are to be 
investigated by a Department of 
Environment working parry 
with a view to IcgisJatiue 

This was announced by Lord 
Skdmersdale. Under Secretary 
of State for Environment, 
during the resumed committee 
singe in tbe House of Lords of 
the Housing and Planning Bin. 
The Opposition, in pressing for 
action, feared there would be 
further long delay and forced a 
division. However, the 
Government had a majority of 
one, the Labour amendment 
being rejected by 94 votes to 93. 

Tbe amendment sought to 
insen in Schedule 2 of the 
Housing Act 1985 grounds for 
possession of a dwelling when a 
relationship broke down. 

Lady Darid (Lab), for the 
Opposition. said 1 

representations had been 
received for a number of years 
from local authorities, housing 
associations and voluntary 
bodies th3t a change of law in 
this area was required. 

The proposal in tbe 
amendment would be voluntary 
on the landlord and would only 
work when one or other of the 

parties requested a 
determination. The Opposition 
wanted to help sort out difficult 
and distressing situations m a 
shorter time than recourse to 
divorce or matrimonial courts 

Lord Slcdmeradale agreed ibis 
was a difficult area. Proposals to 
make relationship breakdown a 
ground for possession were by 
no means new and were resisted 
at the lime of the 1 980 and 1984 
Housing Acts principally 
because it was felt this ought to 
be settled under matrimonial 
legislation rather than by the 
public sector landlord. 

He recognised there was 
support for the proposed 
amendment. The situation in 
Scotland was not a valid 
precedent but he accepted h was 
time they had another look at 
policy on this point. Officials 
had already written to the 
London Boroughs Association 
and the Institute of Housing. 

Once pressure of work on this 
Bill had subsided, the 
deportment would set up a 
working party to consider 
carefully the situation in 
England and Wales. It was 
complex, involving interaction 
of housing and matrimonial 
legislation. An assessment of the 
consequences of possible 
changes must be made. 

This could not be done in 
lime for this Bill. The 
amendment might well not be 
the way to go about h.

Mr Matthews, aged 26, who 
weighed more than 19 stone 
when arrested, tokl a jury at 
the Central Criminal Court 
that a police witness was 
mistaken when picking hhn 
out as the leader of a 30-strong 
mob which attacked rival fans 
at Stamford Bridge. 

He also said he had no 
connection with a “vicious” 
attack on a manager of a 
public bouse in Chelsea after 
the game against Manchester 
United on December 29, 1984. 

Mr Matthews, a father of 
fonr from Wandsworth, 
south-west London, said he 
went to the gone alone and 
later took his wife, Tracey, for 
a drink at Hemy J Bean’s 
public house m Kings Road. 

He pleads not guilty to 
charges of riot, affray and 
causing grievous bodily harm 
to Mr Neil Hansen, the puhtic 
house manager. . 

The. trial was amounted 
until today: 

Operation Unruly swung 
into action at dawn yesterday 
when police officers swooped 
on the homes of football 
supporters and arrested 13

Troublemakers were identi- 
fied by police video recordings 
at the ugly scenes when rival 
fens at the Bradford-Leeds 
game on September 20 tried to 
tipa van containing boiling fet 
on lop of a crowded stand and 
almost caused a repetition of 
the disaster last year when 56 

supporters were killed. 

Police were inundated with 
calls when they released their 
video recording for public 
viewing last Friday and 
yesterday's early morning raid 
by uniformed officers and 
detectives resulted from 
information supplied by many 
relatives and friends of those 

Mr Denis O’Toole, assistant 
chief constable, of West York- 
shire police, said later “Public , 
response has been tremen- 
dous. even friends and rel- 
atives have come forward to , 
give every help they can.” 

Murder on pre-parole 

Fan jailed for threats 

A man arrested in Bradford 
before the Bradford City- 
Leeds United football match 
on September 20 was jailed for 
six months by Bradford mag- 
istrates yesteroay. 

Anthony Kenneth Roberts, 
aged 24, formerly of Guiseley, 
near Leeds, but now of no 
fixed address, admitted using 
insulting or threatening words 
or behaviour in Bradford 

Tbe court was told that 
Roberts was at the fiont of a 
group of about 100 Leeds i 
supporters. On the way to the 
match they met a small group 
of Bradford City suppo rte rs. 

Roberts was seen by police 
to gesticulate and shout 
threats in an attempt to incite 
the Leeds supporters and pro- 
voke a fight. When be was 
arrested helashed out at police 
with his legs and fists. 

There had been an investigation 
into tbe case of William 
Anderson who murdered a man

case and the concern it caused

Lord Mishcoa (Lab): This

H-bomb power ‘famed’ 
in laboratory tests 
by British scientists 

By Pearce Wright, Science Editor 

The power of the H-bomb 
has been harnessed for the 
first iimc in a machine in the 
laboratory- Temperatures of 
more than 100 m degrees 
centigrade were reached, when 
atoms of heavy hydrogen 
fusediQgether three weeks ago 
in a. machine called JET, at 
Culham in Oxfordshire. 

The process has been re- 
peated in the United States, 
with temperatures approach- 
ing ZOOmCin the son of fusion 
reactions that mimic the pro- 
cesses which fuel the sun. 

In principle, the “Tamed" 
version of the reaction that 
liberates energy in the hydro- 
gen bomb could produce 
enough power for the world’s 
needs for thousands of years. 

The fuel it uses is deu- 
terium. or heavy hydrogen, 
abundantly available in tbe 

Unlike the present day 
nuclear power stations, which 
split the heavy uranium atom 
into 100 radioactive waste 
products, fusion involves forc- 
ing Two hydrogen atoms to- 
gether. When they- combine, 
they- form the inert gas. 

The energy released in the 
process would provide the 
source of power for electricity 

Some waste would arise- 
because the metal used to 

forge the vessel for the fusion 
machine would become radio- 
active from neutron 

There is a controlled mod- 
esty among the scientists at 
the JET laboratoiy at Culham. 
and at Princeton in the United 
States, about the break- 
through. The technical papers 
reporting their achievements 
have yel to be published 

But their diffidence has 
another explanation. They 
remember a hiatus, more than 
25 years ago, when British 
physicists suggested mistak- 
enly, from experiments with a 
machine called Zeta, that they 
knew how to control thermo- 
nuclear fusion. 

Vet the latest apparatus in 
Britain and the United States 
in which fusion has been 
achieved by the union of 
atoms of deuterium, incor- 
porates ideas tested on Zeta. 

But many other modifica- 
tions that come from fun- 
damental discoveries in the 
physics of nuclear reactions 
are included 

As even the most heat- 
resistant materials melt at 
temperatures around 2.000C, 
it is a challenge to create a 
hearth for a furnace of earth 
which bums as brightly as the 
sun, at more than lOOmC 

The answer demonstrated 
at Culham by a European 

team of 500 top scientists and 
engineers, working with Dr 
Paul Rebut, the French physi- 
cist, depends on creating mag- 
netic bottles. 

Hie JET machine is a £200 
million project under a EEC 
research programme. 

Fusion takes place inside a 
doughnut-shaped vessel. But 
within that there is an in- 
visible. powerful magnetic 
container that restricts tbe 
super-hot ribbon of heavy 
hydrogen to a ring smaller 
than a thread of cotton. . 

The trick of squeezing the 
material together, until it be- 
comes fluid-like in the form of 
a plasma, and then fuses, rests 
on magnetic confinement. 
Other ways are being tried 
using lasers. 

The magnetic type of ma- 
chines are known as 
Tokamaks. In addition to 
JET, at Culham. and the 
TFTR at Princeton, there is 
another in Japan and one in 
the Soviet Union. 

The JET machine is experi- 
mental equipment to prove 
that fusion can be controlled 

At the end of next month 
the machine will be modified 
for the next phase of research 
destined to end in 1990. Only 
then, win designers know how 
the understanding of fusion 
reactions can be translated 
into a practical power station.

Runcie proposes union with radicals 

By Clifford Loadey

A new church unity move- 
ment to bring together theo-

yesterday by the Archbishop 
of Canterbury, Dr Robert

The price of neglecting this 
would be new splits- and

Dr Runcie is in the United

The atmosphere^ was so 
relaxed that at 9 am it was still 
possible for this reporter to 
knock on the white front door 
of the summit venue and be 
greeted by a polite, unarmed 
Icelandic policeman. Inside 
the former British Consular 
residence (which in its time 
has housed both Winston 
Churchill and Marlene Diet-

being fussily rearranged under 
modest chandeliers.

to Christmas. But we are 
confident lhal because of our 
special geographic location 
there will be no attacks." 

He added as we lunched off 
a mountain of boiled fish in 
the police canteen: “Wc have 
had the airport closed to those

here since before the summit 
was announced. Everyone 
knows everyone in Reykjavik,

stand little chance of launch-

Gorbachov had still not in- 
formed the Icelandic authori-

would be sleeping on the 
Russian liner now moored in

supporters had an Icelandic 
gun permit." Mr Johansson 
said. “So far, we have found 
nobody trying to smuggle in 
any arms. 

The Icelandic authorities 
are aware that Moscow is not 
pleased by their derision to 
allow Jewish activists into the 
country for the summit, 
including a group from the 
US, who arrive today

Jews be allowed in. provided 
all agree not to demonstrate 
without a permit. -.Any who 
do, will quickly be expelled."

O’Brien cancels Cape 
lectures after threat 

of violence on campus 

from Michael Hornsby Johannesburg 

The Irish scholar and 
journalist. Dr Conor Cruise 
O'Brien, has cancelled his 
remaining three lectures at the 
University of Cape Town after 
being informed by the Vice- 
Chancellor that if he went 
ahead there was likely to be 
serious violence on campus. 

.Dr O’Brien also had to 
abandon plans yesterday to 
give a pre-lunch lecture at the 
University of the Witwaters- 
raxrd in Johannesburg when 
militant students, predomi- 
nantly black, made it clear 
that he would be shouted 
down if be tried to speak. 

In an interview with The 
Times, Dr O’Brien, who was 
visibly upset by his experi- 
ence, said he had been the 
target of an “academic 
necklace" — a reference to the 

would be responsible, and I 
didn't want that,” Dr O’Brien 
said. "The militant students 
are feeling their power, and I 
think they will tty and extend 
it over other students, over the 
faculty and over the university 
as a whole” 

Before he left for South 
Africa last month with his 
adopted black son Patrick, Dr 
O'Brien wrote an article in 
The Times passionately 

Two landmines have beat 
found and successfully defused 
on a South African farm just 
over the Zimbabwean border,

said yesterday (AFP reports 
from Pretoria).

black townships to burn to

government collaborators. 

Opposition to Dr O’Brien's 
presence in South Africa be- 
gan to build last week as he 
came to the end of a five-week 
course of 15 lectures at the 
University of Cape T own. The 
last three of 12 lectures he 
gave were seriously disrupted. 

“I was put in the position 
where if I went on, and 
someone was badly hurt, I

He wrote that he would be 

glad to have his visit to Cape 
Town seen as “a gesture of 
defiance against an inieUec- 
lually-disreputable attempt to 
isolate what I know to be an 
honest, open and creative 
intellectual community” 
Students at Witwatersrand 
yesterday refused Dr O'Brien 
an uninterrupted hearing and 
offered instead to engage in an 
"open debate” with Dr 
O'Brien on the issue of the 

academic boycott but he de- 
clined what he called "another 
punishment session” 

Last Thursday at Cape 
Town students asked, “Why 
have you come here to mock 
the suffering of the people?” 
Dr O'Brien said. 

Opposition to the 
visitcomes mainly from black 
students belonging to the 
Azanian Students' Organiza- 
tion (Azaso), an affiliate of the 
United Democratic Front 
(UDF), a broad multi-radal 
alliance of anti-apartheid 
groups. A minority of white 
students also support the aca- 
demic boycott. 

About 15 per cent of the 
students at the two univer- 
sities are Mack. Both univer- 
sities are staunch opponents 
of apartheid and practise a 
colour-blind admissions pol- 
icy. Inferior schooling and 
lack of financial resources 
severely limits the number of 
blacks who gain entry. 

The Government also has 
the power, so far not invoked, 
to impose a ceiling on the 
□umber of blacks entering 

“white” universities if it 
thinks the proportion is 
becoming too high. Black 
students are not supposed to 
live on campus, though many 
do in defiance of the law.

Herr Kohl in the past has been

Shuffle in 
Army aids 

From A Correspondent 

Promotions and retire- 
ments in the Chilean Army 
appear ta strengthen the hand 
of its commander, President 

Among the' seven retiring 
generals are General Luis 
Danus and General Gaston 
Frez, who . represen te d ; a 

mildly nationalistic line wit- 
Jiin the Army. They were* 
critical of the prevailing eco- 
nomic policies of the “Chi- 
cago boys” (disciples of the 
stnet monetarist' theories of 
Dr Milton Friedman). / 

General Danus, admin- 
istrative head of Chile's 
southernmost region for the 
past two years, hid cultivated 
good relations with the Ro? 
man Catholic Church. Presi- 
dent Pinochet has had various 
clashes., with the hierarchy 
recently, despite the impend- 
ing visit of the Pope in April: 

General Danus was also 

friendly with the outspoken 
US Ambassador, Mr Harry 
Barnes, with whom the Presi- 
dent is scarcely on speaking 
terms. General Danus had 
been due to retire this year, 
but Genera] Frez’s departure 
was unscheduled. 

President Pinochet now ap* 
pears to have cleared his own 
top ranks of possible dis- 
sidents. He needs to have his 
hands free to deal with the 
growing (fissent in the other 
three services. 

In the .Navy, the only force 
which could seriously chal- 
lenge him, the annual round of 
promotions announced last 
month seems to have strength- 
ened the hand of the 
“professionals” who favour an 
orderly retreat from govern- 
ment on schedule in 1989.

According, to the council

least a tentative gesture of 
good will- It is hoped that by 
that time it will have either

EEC protests after 
Jakarta kills nine 

By Nicholas Bees ton 

Indonesia yesterday an- 
nounced that it had executed 
nine communists after 21 
.years of imprisonment, bring- 
ing swift protests from the 
EEC and human rights groups. 

The armed forces spokes- 
man in Jakarta, Brigadier- 
General Pieter Damanik. said 
the men, all aged in their 50s 
and 60s. were shot by firing 
squad after all appeal proce- 
dures were exhausted. 

In London. Lord Avebury, 
chairman of the Parliament- 
ary Human Rights Group, 
condemned the delayed exec- 
utions and claimed they were 
intended as a warning to polit- 
ical dissidents in Indonesia. 

“It is doubly inhuman to 
keep someone in prison for a 
lifetime and then execute 
him,” he said. 

He said the action was taken" 
in the face of growing internal 
problems for President Suhar- 
to’s Government. The an- 
nouncement comes only 10 
days before a meeting in Jak- 
arta of foreign ministers from 
the EEC and Asean, its six- 
member South-East Asian 

Sources in Jakarta have 
indicated that the Indonesian 
Foreign Ministry was “very 
unhappy about the military’ 
announcement”, which could 
embarrass Jakarta at the 

ropean Parliament adopted a 
resolution yesterday protest- 
ing at the executions. It calls 
on the EEC Commission to re- 
examine relations with Ja- 
karta (AFP reports).

Academy hits

The Serbian Academy of 
Sciences, in a draft memoran- 
dum published in a Belgrade 
newspaper, has warned that 
unless liberal reforms are in- 
troduced the current federal 
system may disintegrate. 

The memorandum, which 
was to be sent to the Federal 
Assembly, is implicitly critical 
of the late President Tito and 
the Communist Party’s past 
national policies. It slates Lhe 
present federal system is a 
continuation of the old. much- 
detested Comintern policies.

Never a great fovonrite. either 
when h first appeared in 1910 
or during the Shaw revival of 
the 1960s. Misalliance arrives 
at the Barbican because some- 
body believes in ft. The person 
is evidently its director. John 
Caindt and by the end of 
Wednesday night’s glorious 
performance, that should go 
for the audience as weti. 

The title seems-to apply to 
an Edwardian engagement 
Lacking any other suitor, 
Hypatia Tarmton, sole daugh- 
ter of a prosperous underwear 
manufacturer, has sotted for 
marriage with the son of a 
colonial governor: one Bent- 
ley Summerhays, a weedy but 
obstreperous youth given to 
lying flat on the floor and 
howling when anybody 
thwarts his slightest whim. As 
the piece develops, though, 
and the company talk their 
way through an endless sum- 
mer afternoon overlooking 
the un visited beauties of the 
Surrey landscape, the title 
spreads out to absorb a whole 


network of family rela- 

There is Hypatia yawning 
through her Buber's literary 
exhortations, and her self- 
satisfied brother claiming to 
be the real brains behind the 
underwear sales. Lord Sum- 
merhays arrives, wearily dis- 
claiming all responsibility for 
the unspeakable Bentley. 
Later, an armed intruder 
arises from a portable Turkish 
bath and stuns old Tariefon 
with tbe celebrated line “I am 
the only son of Lucinda 
Tftmuss” as a prelude to 
avenging himself on her se- 
ducer: another son- trying to 
strike the father dead. 

The real misalliance is be- 
tween parents and children. 
The natural term of parental 
affection, Shaw wrote else- 
where, is six years. And in this 
piece be takes a multiple view 
of the permutations of parent- 
hood before dropping the 
curtain on a blameless higb- 
bourgeois household with the 
right girl pairing oft with the 
right boy. 

That is one way of describ- 
ing this many-faceted master- 

piece. Yon could also view it 
as a major-key version of 
Heartbreak House. Again, 
there is a country house 
inhabited by members of the 
privileged classes, pursuing 
idle affairs, boring each other 
to death; and then awakened . 
by invaders from tbe outer 
wrrid. In Heartbreak House 
peace is disturbed by the 
burglar and the passing Zep- 
pelin ; in Misalliance. ; by the 
would-be assassin and by a 
stranger who literally drops 
out of the sky. In .terms of 
social drama that is much the 
more effective combination. 

The assassin is a lowly clerk 
in an iU-frtiing suit; the 
stranger a Polish acrobat who 
crash-lands in the garden. 
Immediately, English class 
and sexual responses are po- 
larized. The company dose 
ranks against the clerk and 
treat him to the huraihaxions 
due to an underdog. Con- 
versely, tbe glamorous Polish 
lady activates their hunting 
instinct. She is a free creature 
whom they lust to capture; 
and man after man lines up 
offering her the best cage be 
can afford, and is rejected with 
genial contempt She has art 

. independence and adventure, 
and has fallen among dec- 
adent people who can only 
think about cups of tea and 
making love. 

As the direct embodiment 
of the Shavian Life Force, she 
is ah idealized figure daunting 
to any actress; and Jane 
Lapotaire, got up in a lumpy 
flying suit, does not look the 
pari for all her consciously 
athletic pirouettes. She does 
excel, though, when engaged 
on resolute business (disarm-, 
ing the intruder or hauling 
Bentley off to the gym), and 
delivers her ringing denunci- 
ations with well-studied Pol- 
ish vowels. Otherwise, the 
company take superb advan- 
tage ofa set of characters who 
display Saw’s power wholly 
to discredit ibe character, alter 
the circumstances and thfen 
redeem the victim. 

One long-term example of 
this process is offered by 
Elizabeth Sprig's as Tarieton’s 
wife, a large lady quailing 
from “unpleasant subjects" 
and sitting through her 
husband's philosophizing 
with a bland smile. Seeming a 
complete fool, she finally 
stuns the assembled company 

by unmasking tbe Titrauss 
scandal and taking the vilified 
offspring under her wing as a 
wise old Yorkshire mother. 
Anyone who still doubts 
Stew’s capacity for direct 
human feeling should listen to 
how Miss Spriggs puts the 
offer of a cup of tea. 

Her husband, an autodidac- 
tic linen draper (deafening 
echoes of H.G. Wells) is su- 
perbly played by Brian Cox. a 
volcanic mercantile romantic, 
seemingly passionate only in 
the pursuit ofidcas, but filially 
reduced to playing the heavy 
father up to the ugly limit. 
Sundry stuffed shins (notably 
Richard Garnett and Joseph 
O’Conor) reveal moral under- 
wear of a very different hue; 
and Mick Fora, as the assay 
sin. writhing under the abuse 
of his White-flannelled betters, 
strikes back with a wonderful 
command of the separate 
rhetorics of romantic melo- 
drama and half-digested Soc- 

To complete the evening, 
Roger Butlin's marbled con- 
servatory suffers the assault of 
a full-sized biplane. One could 
hardly ask for more.

The fascination of Other Halves is 
to see die screen d£bnt ofa city — 
Auckland, New 7w>inwH which 
appears as a messy, vital, multi- 
layered 'metropolis— and to watch 
tho interplay of two good perform- 
ercofxoiafly -different origins. Lisa . 
Harrow is an accomplished classi- 
cal actress; Mark Pmsi, a 16-year- 
old Polynesian islander, was an 
Auckland street kid -with a record 
when he was discovered and 
selected for his role. If anything, 
the handsome,- sturdy, 1 mischi- 
evous lad has the edge on the 

professional: the screen likes 
naturals. Tbe success of the 
teaming lies very much in casting 
to type: Harrow plays a middle- 
class 32-year-old whose marriage 
has broken down; Piilisi is a tough 
young delinquent. 

They meet in a mental hospital 
where he has been put to avoid a 
prison sentence for musing, and 
where she is drifting through the 
emotional aftermath. The turbu- 
lent love-affair which then devel- 
ops, surviving improbably at the 
close of the film, looks rather tike 
the wish-dream of a middle-aged, 
middle-class woman, and seriously 
strains credulity. Thane is, indeed, 
a fairly constant conflict between 
the script (by Sue McCauley, from 
her novel), which tends to place the 
characters in quite unlikely situa- 
tions and emotional postures, and 
the performances, which strive 
bravely to make them credible. 
Pillsi is often astonishing in his 
ability to indicate huge gaps in 
human and social understanding

Ratigan np to no good in Basil, the Great Mouse Detective 

project since 1976, when Isabelle 
Adjani and Jack Nicholson were to 
have played the leads, h is remark- 
able that Polanski should in the 
end have embarked with a script so 
irreparably ragged — he co-wrote it 
noth Gerard Brach. Incident fol- 
lows incident quite aimlessly, and 
at one point a major gulf rn die; 
narrative is crudely bndged by a 
title. Such sloppy story-telling is no 
more jostifipd tn a lampoon of the 
buccaneering adventure than it is 
in the. real thing. 

. It 'is all too apparent that the 
action film is not Polanski's metier. 
The numerous fight sequences 

were supervised by .William 
Hobbs, whose work was'seen at its 
best in Richard Lester’s Mmkeieers 
fonts; but here the scenes are so 
clumsily shot and edited that they 
make very little comic or dramatic 
sense. In short, it all seems a rather 
prodigal use of S30nu, a beautifully 
crafted ^lfeon, locations in Tu- 
-nisia, 'Malta and the Seychelles, 
and Walter Matthau, wielding his 
own. inventive brand of cockney. 
Thejuvenfle interest is provided by 
Chris Campion, a young French-

The Disney Studios still "yield to 
none in quality of character anima- 
tion and background detail, and 
the directors of Basil, the Great 
Mouse Detective — John Musker. 
Ron Clements, Dave Michener 
and a veteran Disney animator, 
Burny Mattinson — have a better 
structured story- than usual. The 
characters are based on the 
children's book by Eve Titus. Basil 
dwells beneath the floorboards of 
the other great Baker Street sleuth, 
and admirably' emulates Holmes's 
style in rescuing a toymaker from 
the dutches of the dread Professor 
Ratigan (a rodent MorianyL in- 
cidentally foiling a plot to sub- 
stitute a robot simulacrum for the 
Queen during her Diamond Jubilee 
celebrations — the year being 1897. 

There is the usual care and 
colour in voicing the characters, 
with Vincent Price as a fruity 
Ratigan, Barrie Ingham as the airy 
Holmes and Val Bettin as his trusty 
aide Dr Dawson. Ratigan’s side- 
kick is a horrid bat with a peg-leg 
and a Bronx accent — provided by a 
Studio regular. Candy Candido. An 
eight-year-old Glaswegian, Su- 
sanne Pollatschek. ably gives voice 
to the self-possessed young hero- 
ine. Old-style Disney invention — a 
fine scene where the innnocent- 
seeming toys turn lethally malevo- 
lent — is combined with computer 
animation techniques, used in a 
complex scene within the works of 
Big Ben. Henry Mancmfs musical 
score fails to come up with the 
catchy songs ordinarily characteris- 
tic of Disney features. 

Fredi Murer’s Alpine Fire does 
not quite solve the problem of 
treating a subject that demands 

leisurely, methodical exposition 
without leaving the spectator feel- 
ing that the film itself is uncomfort- 
ably long and slow. As the story of 
the restricted, introverted life of 
four people living in isolation on 
an inaccessible Alpine peak, the 
film may well intend some meta- 
phor about the communal psychol- 
ogy of Murer's native Switzerland. 

The family consists of father, 
mother, son and daughter, who live 
and work harmoniously together, 
despite the father's narrow moral 
principles ar.d his tendency to live 
up to the family nickname of “The 
Irascibles”. The son is deaf-mute, a 
misfortune which the parents 
attribute to their late marriage. The 
daughter has stayed at home to 
devote herself to his rudimentary 
education. In time and inevitably 
the children's mutual devotion 
leads to incest; and the gift's 
pregnancy sparks off the violent 
and bizarre denouement. 

The film generates more fife and 
momentum as it builds to the 
dramatic climax. Until this, there 
is just dogged excellence in its 
documentary account of the daily 
toil and simple pleasures of a life 
passed in isolation from all the 
world except for the grandparents 
who live on the neighbouring peak 
and maintain contact with sema- 
phore and binoculars. Tbe charac- 
ters are dubbed in an obscure 
Alpine dialect, tending to muffle 
the three vocal members of a fine 
ensemble, which includes notably 
Dorothea Moritz as the mother 
and Thomas Nock as the bright, 
bewildered, speechless boy.

they listen to music. 

In his ballet Opus 19, to 
Prokofiev’s First Violin Con- 
certo, Robbins seems himself 
to be implying some inward 
images. Since the ballet was 
first danced here, by New 
York City Ballet in 1979, he 
has confirmed that by adding 
a subtitle. The Dreamer. All 
the same, it is probably best to : 
approach the'baflet simply as , 
an interpretation of -a score | 
that blends .wistfully sweet , 
melodies with tough, thrusting 1 
rhythms. Let the meaning, u i 
any. look after itself and speak 
through the choreography. 

The dances are ted with 
conviction by- Cynthia Har- 
vey. the company’s new balle- 
rina from the United States, 
and Jonathan Cope. Their 
performances,*- often harshly 
angular; are very different 
from the way I remember the 
roles' creators. Patricia Mc- 
Bride and Mikhail Bary- 
shnikov, nor are they much 
like those of more ■ recent 
young New York casts. But 
they are cogent, convincing 
and must meet the chore-

The key/ to the outcome 
could wellbe what happens 
to some oflhose votes which 
might ha je gone to Paris 
prior to ue recent wave of

ardized htemational opin-

Bimjtagham will all have

It fe an undoubted fact that

summer games by the pre- 
ily determined winter

.process of secret ballot, 
eliminating the bottom can- 
didate .each time until one 
city has a simple overall 
majority. Were Albertville or 
Sofia, an Eastern European 
socialist candidate, to be 
elected for the winter games, 
either choice would have a 
bearing on uncommitted 
support for Paris and Bel- 
grade in the subsequent sum- 
mer vote. 

With Barcelona, which has 
thrown £5 million into their 
publicity promotion, being 
the undeniable favourite, a 
speculative first round vot- 
ing distribution could be: 
Barcelona 28, ‘ Paris 15, 
Amsterdam 12, Brisbane 10, 
Birmingham 10, Belgrade 8. 

What will happen there- 
after is that the voting may 
split various ways, and if 
Amsterdam, Brisbane and 

Birmingham have upheld 
their credibility by surviving 
the first round, members 
who voted for Paris and 
Belgrade, and even for Barce- 
lona, the first time might 
now switch to one of the 
three in the middle ground, 
since they provide the most 
compact arrangements of 
Olympic sites. 

By this shifting process, it 
is possible that Barcelona 

could sian substantially in 
front and still not ultimately 
win, wiih Amsterdam. Bris- 
bane or Birmingham coming 
from behind. Some members 
who support Barcelona — a 
worthy candidate three times 
previously unsuccessful — 
may have been disillusioned 
by the ungracious behaviour

games in Seoul of Joao

ber and the president of

ephemeral moods as there 
will be next Friday, anything

Kevan Gosper 

Gosper, presi- 
dent of the 
Australian na- 
says Brisbane 
should host the 1992 
Olympic Games because it of- 
fers an exceptional 
opportunity for the Olympic 
movement — a trouble-free 
games. Australia is a peace- 
ful, stable country with a 
reputation for friendliness and 
hospitality. He says: 
“Brisbane is the only dty iq -J 
the southern hemisphere .. : 
with the capacity to organfoev < 
such a major international' 
event which has come fortijtid 
with credible, well - . \, 

thought-out plans. As host '■ 
city for the highly success- 
fol Commonwealth Games in 
1982, it already has many 
of the Olympic-standard 
sports fadlities needed for 
1992. It is a modem dty 
which offers convenience 
and compactness that no other 
contender can provide. A 
central Olympic village will 
accommodate all athletes 
and officials. To put Brisbane 
on an equal travel cost 
footing with the European bid 
cities, 20 million Austra- 
lian dollars travel subsidy wul 
be dispersed to all national 
Olympic committees on an eq- 
uitable basis which takes 
into account both their team 
size and cost of air travel.

proceeds to reel off what 
he calls “only the fun- 
damental reasons” why 
Barcelona can justifiably ex- 
pect to host the games. Ba- 
sically, he told The Times, 
Barcelona's reasons are 
twofold. It is trying for the 
fifth time since 1924 to get 
the games; Spain is the only 
Urge European country not 
yet to have had any Olympic 
games, either winter or 
smmner.There is nothing 
sentimental in that ap- 
proach. he contends. Sec- 
ondly, in Barcelona's case 
80 percent of the sports in- 
stallations are already 
there. “That percentage is as 
good as the best among the 
other candidates,” he oh- ' 
serves.'Secnrity? The ath- 
letes can travel swiftly from > 
their Olympic village to 
the foar enclosed sports sites 
by Barcelona's coastal 
boulevard which is easy to 
protect Finally, not all the 
city contenders have 
Barcelona's good climate 
or tradition as an important .

Part 5: Prep schools 
The independent 
sector comes into its 
own in prep schools, 
with huge choice, a 
full life and a kiss 
at bedtime with a 
whiff of home. The 
more spartan regimes may be gone, but as 
Amanda Atha and Sarah Drummond found 
*n their new survey, it is heads down all the 
iway at top schools, with little time for fun 


i he choice among prep 
1 schools is enormous. 
Arguably, this is where 
the independent sector 
excels, particularly on 
the boarding front (and not forget- 
ting that prep schools are much 
easier to run than senior schools). 
All the preps we covered are 
private, the majority boarding, 
some with a day element Your 
real question at this stage is: do 
you want to send your child away 
at eight (if ever)? We spotted a 
trend to going away later - at nine, ' 
10, even li. 

The spartan, highly-disciplined 
prep school may be more or less a 
thing of the past but no matter 
how thick die carpets and cur- 
tains, no matter how many teddies 
on beds, there are bound to be 
tears too. Comfort however, is at 
hand. One head's wife told us that 
on the first night of term she 
downed a quick gin and tonic en

boys. Bending to kiss one. she 
asked if he was happy. "Oh yes.”

Prep schools fell conveniently 
into categories There are the 
posh os (e.g. Ludgrove, Elstree, 
Sandroyd), deeply traditional, the 
beginning of the old-boy network, 
with honours boards that look like 
Burke’s Peerage. There are still a 
few family-owned preps, like 
Maidweil and Ashdown, set in 
rambling country houses that 
adapt remarkably well, with panti- 
ling, library, billiards room, park- 
land: wellies in the porch 

and dog-eared carpets. 

Co-ed bearding preps are a 
newish breed, and highly success- 
ful, for example Windlesham and 

Port Regis, with the Dragon a 
distinguished forerunner. Accord- 
ing to the heads of secondary 
schools, the girls arrive excep- 

tionally well grounded, often 
ahead of their peers — many of 
whom haven’t touched Latin yet 
Then there are schools affiliated 
to the next step up, such as Colei 
Court for St Paul’s and Gilling for 
Ampleforth. Is this the back-door 
entrance? Is it stultifying for a 
child to remain in more or less the 
same group and the same place 
from eight until 18? 

Next are feed schools famous 
for sending large batches of pupils 
to famous public schools

M y mother used to say to 
niK “I always longed for

me to a ladies’ lunch and I my 
w’tb the diet salad. I hated 
dolls, was indifferent to cooking, 
and though I did spend a good deal 
of time in front of the bathroom 
mirror, it was no more thaw my 
brother spent. My obsessions, in 
feet, were for more likely to be 
shared by the opposite sex than my 

I feH in love with men, I 
identified with them. They often 
complained about ihfo, saying I 
showed no interest in sewing on 
uieir buttons or blacking their 
riding boots. I envied their initia- 
tive and could see no virtne in 
waiting at home for a phone call 
discussing with the other girls how 
to entrap men with a beehive hairdo 
and a chocolate box smile. 

Those were the bad old pre- 
feminist days, of course; but even 
now. in my experience, a passive 
femininity sets in all too easily once 
the hormones are aroused. For the 
most part, therefore, my relation- 
ships with men have been platonic. 
I almost prefer it that way, for I find 
their friendship stimulating. 

In my teens, it was not very 
difficult to come to the conclusion 
that boys were the missing link in 
the desire and pursuit of the whole. 
To lunch or dine with even the least 
virile holds a frisson which never 
quite seems to stir between friends 
of the same sex. 

Sooner or later; of -course; the . 

- image musr flash across the mind of 
a more than platonic relationship. 
Sometimes that is what it becomes. 

. . There is a compensation, however. 
Some of the best friends are old 
lovers, for you can never surprise 
them with any mtimate habit which 
might destroy a more tender friend- 
ship. Men never quite want to let 
their women go, and they can even 
be extremely generous with their 
time once it is understood you have 
no efgfmg on the heart. 

They do not seem to waste time 
on bitching or gossiping, though it 
has to be said, male writers are just 
as good at this stock in trade as 

- female ones. There are male writers 
who will call me at midnight and 
chat into the small hours about 
absolutely nothing at all except the 
latest joke or improbable plot based, 
on a slice of life. Men usually have* 
better jokes. 

Jeffrey Bernard and agony aunt Irma Kurtz: ’The friendship of women is better for the soul than that of men” 

A ll my telephone friends, I 
think, are married, but 
then married men are al- 
lowed more freedom by 
their wives- than the other’ way 
around, which happily leaves twice 
’ as many men as women available 
-for soda! intercourse,. 

L have not put this theory to die 
test too* often in die -flesh. Once in 
Toronto it nearly foiled. I arrived in 
shirtsleeves from California on a 
beautiful spring day to spend one 
evening with an old married friend. 
Six days later I was still there, 
locked in by an nnseasonal snow- 
storm and waring bis pullovers for 
warmth. While' he insisted I play 
Scott Joplin with him on the piano; 

- liis wife insisted she prepare three 
' ' meals a day from the contents, of the 
. - freezer. She did this with an air of 

Jeffrey Bernard — bon riveur, man- 
abont-Soho and award winning 
Spectator and Sporting Life cot- 
umnist — claims to have countless 
women friends, including three of 
his four ex-wives (the other is sadly 
no longer a live). Bat fittingly, the 
woman on whom he can always rely 
for chicken soap and sympathy is 
Cosmopolitan's agony aunt Irma 
Knrtz, his friend, idly and drinking 
companion for 25 years. 

“We stumbled over each other in 
Soho when she was fresh . from 
- Paris,"* he explained. “Since then, 

martyrdom, but refused all offers of 
help. Later they were divorced. It 
had nothing to do with me, but I 
was rather on her side in the 
decision. Men are children and that 
is what is fun about their friendship. 
Far better to be a friend than a wife 
because it makes you feel so awfully 
old to be married to a child. 

Then again the grown-up world 
trusts men so much more. Women 
still have a frightful reputation as 
dilettantes or dragons. Hang a man 
on your arm and you can get up to 
all sons of things without advertis- 
ing the fact. 

Many people would insist that 
friendship, by definition, is not a 
scheme, a plot or an arduous chore. 
Neither can it be fawning like a 
bundle of puppies together in a 
basket The American philospher 
Emerson said: “Our friendships 
burry to short and poor conclusions 
because we have made them a 
texture of wine and dreams instead 
of the tough fibre of the human 
heart” He added: “I do with my 
friends as I do with my books. I 

she has allowed me to go on playing 
little- boy-lost long after I was 
entitled — and I wouldn’t hesitate to 
mak e a mayday call to her at 3am if 
I was in trouble. It’s happened more 
than once. 

“The friendship of *xj men,” be 
insists, “is better for the soul than 
that of men; men would for rather 
lend yon £100 than a shoulder to 
lean on. Being a diabetic, I fre- 
quently have to go into hospital 
when 1 have problems. She always 
comes round, to hold my handfor 
hours, make me laugh . . .When 

would have them where I can find 
them, but I seldom use them.” 

I understand that The idea that a 
friend has carte blanche to borrow 
the proverbial cup of sugar when- 
ever he wants is as unappealing as 
the idea he never bothers to ask. A 
perfect unobtrusive friendship is 
easier to keep with a person of the 
opposite sex. 

R ecently I wrote a five-line 
letter after 10 years to 
someone very dear to me, 
who lives with wife and 
children 6,000 miles away. The 
message he then knew to leave on 
the telephone answering machine 
did more to persuade me aO was 
well with the world than any 
amount of bandholding from many 
a nearer friend. 

Some people might spot there is a 
deficiency in those who are happier 
confiding in the opposite sex, as if 
they bad something to hide from the 
similar instincts of their own. They 
might be right . 

But fete has left me with little

in the position of trying to counsel 
and advise this professional prob-

Restaurant Syndrome. 

The myth of the syndrome 
has been debunked by Dr 
R.A. Kenny of The George 
Washington University, 
Washington. Reviewed in 
Pulse magazine, his research 
— which included a small 
double blind trial — has taken 
sereral years, aod has shown

chemistry. Furthermore. 
Dr Kenuy found no de- 
monstrable biochemical dif- 
ferences after dinner between 
the allegedly allergic and 
those who were not. 

The myth itself was started 
by a letter written to the New 
England Journal of Medicine 
by Dr Robert Ho Man Kwok 
in 1968. Dr Kwok wrote that 
dinner in a Chinese restaurant 
left him with feelings of mus- 
cle weakness, numbness in his 
hands and palpitations — an 
observation that caused other 
people to notice similar sympt- 
tonts after eating any dish with 
added monosodinm glutamate. 

Since then some restaurant 
owners have found it easier to 
blame the syndrome than to 
admit to poor hygiene in their 
kitchens. Bat doctors have 
always doubted the likelihood 
of the diagnosis, particularly 

as research workers could raft 
induce the symptoms u 


Biscuits for bigger babies 

Generations of doctors have observed that their 

^ weD-fed. non-working leisured pregnant pa- 
tients give birth to larger babies than do those 
mothers who have had to work excessively 
hard on meagre rations. Physiologists have 
shown that if a pregnant woman's diet falls 
below 1 .800 kilocalories a day the baby suffers. 
A recent report in Hospital Doctor highlighted the work of foe 
Dunn Nutrition Unit of the Medical Research Council In 
Cambridge, which set up a centre m The Gambia 12 years ago 
to study the relationship between birth weight and nutrition. Dr 
Whitehead, director of the unit says that babies weighing be- 
tween 4.5 and 51b have a six times greater chance of dying In 
foe perinatal period than those of average weight, 6.5 to 
7lb. Even those who survive run a three times greater risk of 
dying during infancy. 

Dr Whitehead has shown that in the rainy season preceding 
the harvest, when food is scarce and the work in the fields 
arduous, there is a particularly high incidence of low birth- 
weight babies. Now. however, the MRC has developed a 
biscuit containing essential nutrients and high calorie roods. 
Given twice a day to pregnant women, the biscuit - made of 
peanuts, flour, dried milk and sugar - has reduced the 
percentage of small babies from 28 to 5. This simple 
supplement, together with a supply of dean water, has 
reduced the mortality rate, among children less than five years 
old from 50 to 2 per cent 

Children kept under wraps 


Short-term crises can 
result in children 
being placed in care 
and a hard battle 
for parental access . 

Owain Bidgood was taken hrto 
care six years ago while his' 
mother Janet was undergoing 
treatment for depression 
following the death of her 
husband in a car crash. No one 
suggested she had mistreated 
him. but social workers feared 
she couldn’t cope with a lively 

Almost every day for seven 
weeks she made, foe 50-mile

home where Owain was stay-

was placed with foster parents, 
her visiting rights 'were 
nbruptlv terminated and she 
was no! even allowed to know 
her son’s address.

authority decisions to stop 
access visits and foe Depart- 
ment of Health and Social 
Security issued a code of 
practice for social workers 
which stresses the importance, 
for children of sustaining links 
with their natural family. 

A short term crisis - mar- 
riage breakdown^ illness or 
homelessness — will precip- 
itate a child going into care. 
The majority of children go 
back to their parents, most of 
them after a short time. But 
new findings from a DHSS 
sponsored research project in- 
dicate that continuing access 
by parents is a crucial fectorin 
determining whether a 'child 
returns home. 

With children, foe bonds 

with' die natural parents can 
quickly wither, pre-empting a 
long term decision about foe 
child's future “We were stag- 
gered, when studying our 
statistics, to realize bow very 
quickly children can drift 
away from the natural 
family,’* says Bernard Kearns, 
a city councillor in Bradford. 
-“It can be measured in weeks 
and even days.” 

Many of the. decisions to 
sever family.- ties have been 
based on foe belief that chil- 
dren cannot be expected to 
sustain two sets of family 
relationships. But foe ev- 
idence shatters this myth, 
argues foe Family Rights 
Group in its book Promoting 
Links, published this month. 

- - Studies in Britain and 
America reveal that children 
in care do belter if they keep in 
touch with their original 

The code of practice on 
access reflects these findings, 
but the new law has its 
shortcomings. Only decisions 
to stop access or not to start it 
in the .first place can be' 
challenged in foe courts. So for 
a parent whose visits are 
limited to one or two a year, 
foe only possible redress is 
through foe local council's 
own appeals procedure. “But 
many local authorities have 
still not set up foe appeals 
machinery, though this was 
issued nearly three years ago,” 
says the group’s social worker, 
Celia Atherton. 

■ Particularly sad. she feels, 
are the cases in which grand- 
parents are cut off from 
children who go into care. In 
one study of long term foster 
care, foe researchers con- 
cluded: “Friction between fos- 
ter parents and grandparents 
seemed minimal and children 
gained a lot.” Yet grand- 
parents — like the fathers of 
illegitimate children, who 
don't count as parents under 
foe Jaw • — have no legal 
remedies if access is refused.

A keen-eyed cG- 
would have no- 
ticed that one of 
the financiers 
attending the 
recent meeting 
of the World Bank limped on 
to the plane at Heathrow. He 
was a victim of two problems: 
gout and his doctors* extreme 
anxieties about foe use of non- 
steroidal anti-inflammatory 
drugs (NSAID). This was the 
banker's first attack of crip- 
pling gout, bat his medical 
advisers were so aware of 
possible side-effects that he 
was only given a sixth of the 
dose recommended for this 
condition in the British Na- 
tional Formulary. In London 
he had undergone two days of 
full treatment, but -when he 
tried to renew his prescription 
in Washington alarm broke 
out again; he triumphed over 
the American fear of litigation 
.and survived unscathed. 

Writing in Mims magazine 
Dr Andrei Calin, a consultant 
rheumatologist in Bath, sug- 
gests that much of the advene 
publicity surrounding foe 
NSAID group of drags has 
been unfair.- -The side-effects 
-vary— from -drug to dnqp 
lndotidts comparatively free 
of trouble and even the more 
troublesome drags involve a 
risk only a thousandth that of 
smoking 10 cigarettes a day 
for 10 years. Statistically, he 
says, the dangers of raking 
NSAID compare favourably 
with foe hazards of driving.' 

Dr Calvin believes font 
some of the anti-rheumatic 
drugs* bad reputation arises 
from foe failure of doctors to 
explain to patients the small 
risk involved and to teach 
them to balance this against 
the benefits the treatment 
might bring. Only the elderly 
tolerate NSAID badly and are 
more likely to suffer serious 
side effects, as well as the 
more common gastro-intes- 
tinal inflammation.

Helping Thatcher’s losers 


The last 
bastion falls 

Eight hundred years of Oxbridge 
history came to an end yesterday 
when the governing body of 
Magdalene College, Cambridge, 
passed a motion to admit women. 
The proposal will now go to the 
University Senate for approval, to 
the Magdalene dons for ratifica- 
tion and finally to the Privy 
Council for its formal consent; this 
means that the change is unlikely 
to lake effect before October 1988. 
The news has not pleased every- 
one. Magdalene has traditionally 
been labelled the finishing school 
for old Etonians, and Matthew 
Lindsay, president of the Junior 
Common Room, says the general 
feeling among undergraduates is 
that it should not go co-ed. “For 
tradi tonal reasons, people believe 
that if you want a single-sex 
education, you should hive a 
choice. They see it as the last 
bastion." Women may also apply 
to become dons and. even. Masts*. 
If one ever achieves such emi- 
nence will she be Mistress?

The Tories remain firmly out of

comes to hats. When feminine 
headwear was not generally in 
vogue. Tory ladies resolutely 
sprouted millinery confections

has swung; hats are in, yet in 
Bournemouth at the start of the

behatted member of the party in

gains; high earners pay less tax; people 
with businesses benefit from the profits; 
one million have bought their council 
houses; three million more own shares 
than in 1 979 and one and a half million 
own shares in the companies for which 
they work. 

But what about the others? There are 
four groups who have lost out First, ' 
three million remain out of work, yet 
those in work, whether in government, 
industry or trade unions, -connive at 
practices that keep them out; regulated 
wages, restrictive working practices, 
expensive overtime in the public sector. 
Freer labour and housing markets 
depend on overturning vested interests 
to allow others the same chance as the 
fortunate 87 per cent 
Second, there are, even by official 
reckoning, some four million low-paid 
workers, earning less than 140 per cent 
of supplementary benefit. They may pay 
29 per cent tax instead of 33 per cent but 
they start paying it on an income of only 
£2,300 a year. In the United States 29 
per cent tax is not paid until one earns 
£17,000 a year. 

by. Michael Fallon 

In Britain a high starting-rate applies 
at an income level 20 per cent below the 
official poverty line, hitting four out of 
five families on family income supple- 
ment Of die four million low-paid, two 
and a half million, one in eight tax- 
payers, receive some form of income- 
related benefit For these groups every 
pound taken in tax is a pound forgone 
on basic food, fuel and clothing. Tax 
cuts and lower thresholds are their right 

Third, the one and a half million 
unemployed who live outside the 
prosperous South-east, in the assisted' 
areas of North-east North-west Wales 
and Scotland. Few of them can move or 
.want to move: Regional aid and rate, 
support grant, though partly alleviating 
their plight, perpetuate dependence on 

National wage bargaining and cen- 
tralized energy pricing deny the north 
the full benefit of its natural advantages ' 
in surplus resources, cheap housing and 
underdeveloped land. We owe it to 
those one and a half milli on to help 
them build regions, of opportunity on 
homegrown, low-cost enterprise. : 

Fourth, around' LT million people 

will still work in the nationalized 
industries, even after extensive priv- 
atization. Their pay is restricted by 
Whitehall, their future dependent as 
much on politicians as on their own 
efforts. Thousands work for low wages 
in over-staffed, badly run industries like 
British Rail or the Post Office. 

External financing limits and better 
management are in the end no sub- 
stitute for giving each employee a real 
share in his business. Why should such a 
privilege be confined to Jaguar or the 
National Freight Consortium? Do those 
who work for British Coal deserve less 
than those who work for British GaS? 

These four groups are denied the 
advantages of choice and the dignity of 
taking decisions for themselves and 
their ramifies. 

To draw back from radical reform, 
therefore, would be more than loss of 
political nerve. It would foil those 
without jobs, with low incomes, without 
assets.These are the underprivileged 
whom the next seven years of Conser- 
vative government must liberate. In no 
sense can Thatcherism be partial. 

The author is Conservative MP for 

On the day the Tory conference debates the national economy, Stephen Axis 
highlights the problems feeing its own financiers as an election approaches 

When the Institute of Directors 
recently asked its members to pass 
judgement on the programmes of 
the political parties, the results 
were unsurprising. The only as- 
pect of Conservative policy about 
which any doubt was expressed 
was the firmness of the govern- 
ment’s commitment to reduce 
public spending. Plainly the IOD 
is “p/us royaliste que le ror. 

The IOD, which has a member- 
ship of 28,000. sees itself as bring 
in the vanguard of free enterprise. 
Unlike the Confederation of Brit- 
ish Industry it is a natural ally of 
the present government, with 
which it has strong links, and. via 
the Number 10 policy unit, has 
privileged access to Mrs Thatcher. 
Through this network it claims to 
have had a significant impact on 
government policy, especially 
union reform and privatization. 

But there is a paradox -here. 
However strongly the IOD might, - 
will the ends, when it comes to . 
providing the means the members 
are less than forthright If they 
were prepared to back their words 
with money, the Conservative 
party managers at Bournemouth 
would have no need to worry. But 
that is not the case. Abd what goes 
for the loyalists of the IOD is even 
more true of the less committed 
members of the CBL ... _ 

“Great sections of the member-... 
ship, especially in the West Mid- 
lands and Scotland,” says a CBI 
spokesman, “are utterly confused 
and demoralized by the impact of ~ 
government policies.-For the rest, 
the destruction of the manufac- 
turing base has meant that the 
source of funds is drying up.” 

A further Mow to Tory finances 
in the run-up to the general 
election was the row between the 
then party chairman, John Glim- 
mer. and the treasurer. Lord 
McAIpine. who withdrew ina huff 
to Australia. It is only in the past '• 
six months or sa with Lord 
McAlpine's return, that' the Cen- 
tral Office machine has again ■' ■ 
begun to function effectively. 

Of all the political parties, the 
Tories are the most secretive 
about their financial backing. But 
such figures as there are show that 
for from enjoying a steady stream 
of money mom business, they live 
from hand to mouth. While the 
trade union levy supplies a solvent 
Labour. Party with a regular, 
guaranteed income of £3.5 million 
a year, the Tories have been 
almost permanently in the red, . 
leading to allegations by constit- 
uency parlies of Central Office 
profligacy and incompetence. 

Since 1979 Central Office funds 
(as distinct from local constit- 
uency funds) have been in deficit 
for four years out of six, and in the 
two remaining years. 1982-83 and 
1983-84, just broke even. 

Party spokesmen maintain the 
polite fiction that it is the dedi- 
cated work of the constituency 
workers that, keeps the machine 
going. The truth is that were it not 
for big business, financially the 
party would not survive, let alone 
be able to fight the next election, 
which could cost up to £15 
million. The money to be raised 
by the recent much publicized 
blue rosette scheme, earmarked 
for a direct mail campaign — one

business is — when ft stumps up 


good men... 

of Nonnan Tebbitt’s pet projects 
— win be insignificant compared 7 
with the contri b ution that buri-» 
ness will be expected to make. 

Thanks to the efforts of Labour 
Research, a trade-union funded 
research organization, group busi- 
ness support for the Tories is well 
documented. The latest survey, 
published last summer, shows that 
in 1984 320 out of a sample of 
1.250 companies gave just over 
£2.6 million to the Tories or 
associated groups like British 
United Industrialists, a thinly 
disguised Tory front organization, 
the Economic League, and Aims 

The biggest donors were Lord 
Cayzer’s British and Common- 
wealth Shipping (£97,900), Sir 
Ernest Harrison’s Racal (£75,000), 
London and Northern (£57,000), 
Plessey (£55,000), Distillers 
(£55,000) and Lord Hanson's 
Hanson Trust (£50,000). Lord 
Forte's Trusthouse Forte and Sir 
Nigel Broackes’s Trafalgar House 
were not far behind with £40,000 
apiece. But even this rock-ribbed 
support fluctuates, rising to a peak 
at election time and ailing back 

. What must worry Lord Mc- 
AIpine even more is that once 
loyal supporters like Tate & Lyle, 
whose struggles to avoid national- 
ization in the 1950s led to the 
foundation of British United 

Industrialists, are, after board- 
room. changes, looking distinctly 
pink 'at the edges. Tate Lyle, 
splits' its money between the 
Tories and the Alliance. 

The sums raised by industry for 
the Tories are impressive, but the 
base is narrow. A similar survey 
by The Economist for 1983 showsi 
that the bulk was provided by 34 
public companies. City firms who 
have prospered most from the 
Thatcher years are conspicuous by 
their absence, making Labour’s 
recent foray into the Square Mile 
all the more intriguing. 

' The number of Labour’s im- 
mediate friends in the City can be 
counted on the fingers of one 
hand: they include Lord 
Donoughue. formerly an eco- 
nomic advisor to the Wilson 
government and now head of 
research for stockbroker 
Grieveson Grant, and Gavyn 
Davies, of Goldman Sachs. 
According to Lord Donoughue, 
Roy Hatters! ey. Labours shadow 
chancellor, is under no illusions as 
to his reception, “It would be silly 
for anyone to expect him to 
convert the City ” he says. 

But Haxterstey- is undeterred. 
Under the watchful and sus? 
picious eye of the left, be and his 
chief lieutenants have been 
assiduously doing the rounds to 
explain that a Labour government 
would not be as much asa disaster 

as the City imagines; reducing 
unemployment was the priority, 
but the party would not go on a 
spending spree. Donoughue says 
the reassurance has had some 
success. The Hattersley line on the 
impossibility of re-imposing ex- 
change controls — highlighted in 
an exchange with Eric Heffer at 
the party conference last week — is 
also said to have gone down well. 

. The problems facing the Alli- 
ance are of a rather different kind. 
In theory business is wdl dis- 
posed. A wide cross-section, while 
not necessarily Alliance support- 
ers, are sympathetic to the case for 
proportional representation; 
much of what the CBI has been 
calling for fits neatly into the 
Alliance programme and even the 
Institute of Directors has a few 
kind words: It likes the Alliance’s 
approach to small businesses and 
trade union reform. 

Many senior businessmenare 
SDP supporters. Among the best- 
known are Sir John Harvey-Jones, 
the outgoing chairman of ICL Sir 
James Spooner, chairman of 
Vantona Vryella, John Hull, chair- 
man of Schroeder Wagg, and Sir 
Leslie Murphy, formerly deputy 
chair man of the National Enter- 
prise Board. From the entertain- 
ment and allied industries conies 
support from composer Eric 
Woifson and film producer David 

But, despite the goodwill, the 
money has not been forthcoming. 
The SDP tsoniy narrowly in the 
. red, but of the £800,000 it raisedin 
■ the last financial year, industry, 
according to .the party’s joint 
treasurer, David Samsbury, pro- 
vided no more than 5 per cent “I 
must confess Tm a little 
disappointed,” said the SDFs 
other money man. Sir Leslie 
Murphy. “There is a lot of support 
for the SDP but it has not been 
channelled in the way tag business 
supports the-Tories.” • - 

David Owen has also been 
lunching vigorously in the City. 
His reception has been polite, 
sympathetic but essentially un- 
rewarding. The reaction of Ru- 
dolph Agnew, chairman of 
Consolidated Gold Fields, is not 
untypical. He would like to sup- 
port the SDP. be said, but couldn’t 
stand the Liberals. Only a few 
companies, such as Marks and 
Spencer, normally loyal Tory 
supporters, have placed small side 
bets on the Alliance, with the 
result that corporate contributions 
are around £70,000. 

If it was not for David 
Samsbury himself; a member of 
the supermarket feinfly and one of 
the richest men in Britain, the 
SDP would be struggling. Sains- 
bury met out ofhis own pocket the 
£250,000 bill for advertising at the 
last election and in the hiatus that 
followed spent a further £40,000 to 
'rebuild the party’s fund-raising 

Very soon now, the Alliance will 
begin, the big push. The two 
Davids have started to lunch in 
tandem. But meanwhile, David 
Samsbury waits for the mould to 
break and says: “I just wish 
business would-be a litile more

Reagan: summit-bound beset by scandal 



“Faith in the word of America is 
the pulse beat of our democracy. 
Anything that . hurts America's 
credibility hurts America.” These 
bitter words by State Department 
spokesman Bernard Kalb in his 
resignation statement could not 
have been more wounding, or 
come at a more embarrassing 
moment. For. on the eve of a 
summit, credibility is afl in super- 
power politics and the jostling to 
win over world opinion. No 
wonder the White House was so 
curtly dismissive of him; no 
wonder the Libyan “disinform- 
ation" scandal seems such a 
propaganda gift for Moscow. 

Both sides have been upset by 
the unexpected this past week. 
Hie Russians lost a submarine: 
the US suffered the shooting down 
of an American-crewed plane over 
Nicaragua and the public parading 
of a captive. To Washington's 
pleasant surprise. Mikhail Gor- 
bachov sent the White House a 
message about the submarine 
explosion soon after it occurred. 
As President Reagan conceded. 
“They have learned something, 
from Chernobyl", As a result there 

has been Utile criticism of Moscow 
and relatively few press reports 
about the constant cat-and-mouse 
submarine stalking in the Atlantic. 

The Americans were less .forth- 
coming about the crashed aircraft. 
“It was hired by private people 
and had no connection with the 
American government at all,” 
declared George Shultz, the Sec- 
retary of State. But the sceptical 
media are not convinced and have 
dwelt at length on the murky 
work) of unofficial US support for 
military advisers and mercenaries 
operating in Nicaragua. 

Far more damaging, however, is 
the disinformation affair. For this 
is not simply a question of reacting • 
to some embarrassing event for 
away: this is the revelation that 
one of the most senior White 
House officials — Admiral John 
Poindexter, the national security 
adviser — has been privately 
advocating to the president a 
campaign of official lies and half- 
truths to destabilize Colonel 
Gadaffi. And what is worse, he has ■ 
used the very word “disinform- 
ation" in a written memorandum 
— a word that to conservatives is 
the very hallmark. of KGB opera- . 
tionsi and their alleged influence. .- 

( . - 

on left-ofeentre journalism. It is, 
indeed, a purely Rusrian word. 

All might have been well had 
Poindexter not written it down. 
Conservatives applaud any at- 
tempt to oust Gadaffi. even the 
use of strong-arm tactics. But at a 
time when Reagan’s key support- 
ers are warning of Moscow’s 
relentless attempts to use the 
“libera] media” to derail US 
policy, the moral dement of their 
indignation has been grievously 
undercut. They have joined the 
liberals in denouncing the admiral 
and his plan. 

The affair might have died 
down but for Kalb, the first senior 
official in six years to resign from 
the Reagan administration on a 
matter of principle. Choosing his 
words with care, be has dearly 
suggested that the denials that 
there was any attempt to deedve 
the American press were them- 
selves lies. 

When perception and propa- 
ganda will dominate a summit 
officially shrouded in silence, the 
Americans have been put at a 
disadvantage, while the Russians, 
who have been so assiduous in 
improving their press relations, 
J " 

can smirk at American dis- 
comfort. This extends beyond the 
White House to the House of 
Representatives, whose Democrat 
majprity has put off voting on 
arms control resolutions which, 
the White House insists, would 
weaken Reagan's negotiating po- 
sition at Reykjavik. 

The political repercussions wiQ 
continue after the s ummit - A 
furious Reagan has already called 
in the Federal Bureau of Investiga- 
tion to trace the source of the leak. 
But it may be too late to save the 
credibility of Admiral Poindexter. 

Already there has been criticism 
that he Is not up to the job once 
filled by Hemy Kissinger and 
Zbigniew BrzezmsJd, that he has 
little influence within the admin- 
istration and poor relations with 
Congress. The European - allies, 
alarmed in August by the appar- 
ently gratuitous new Libyan crisis, 
will be just that much more 
sceptical now they know the 
reason. And Gadaffi. for from 
being overthrown, is sure now to 
brag that any American state- 
ments that he is backing terrorism 
are mere lies.

What shall we do 

i The Old Bailey heats some pretty 
.-unsavoury stories but not often as 

i* filLurotiArtC fl? 

the trial of Nezar Hindawt, the 
Jordanian accused of trying to 
blow up an Israeli jumbo jet by 
planting a bomb in foe luggage of 
bis pregnant Irish girlfriend. _ _ 

The central charge, if it is 
proved, stuns the iraagmpon. 
But the overtones of the affiur go 
-for beyond that. The prosecution 
claims that after he left Heathrow, 
Hindawt proceeded to the Syrian 
embassy in London where he 
presented a letter to the ambas- 
sador, Dr Loutof al-Haydar. The 
ambassador is then alleged to have 
phoned Damascus for instructions 
and subsequently packed Hindawt 

off in the care of three of his 
embassy staff who tried to dis- 
guise him and would have taken 
him back to the embassy if he bad 
not taken fright and run Off. 

If this story is established, the 
consequences are profound — the 
Syrian embassy, and by extension 
the Syrian government, w in have 
been implicated in a terrorist 
attempt and Mrs Thatcher will 

have to decide what to do abo ut iL 

It is relevant to note Sir Geoffrey 
Howe's statement to the Tory 
conference: "Any state which 
directs violence against another 
nation must meet the anger of the 
whole civilized world ” ^ 

The decision is an extremely 
difficult one for the government, 
parliament and public opinion 
wfl] surely call for drastic reprisals 
and Mrs Thatcher’s highly visible 
stance on the subject of state- 
supported terrorism, especially in 
the case of Libya, will incline her 
to comply. After WPC Yvonne 
Fletcher was shot dead by a 
member of the Libyan embassy 
staff Britain -broke off diplomatic 
relations with Libya immediately. 
Only last month, when clear 
evidence was- shown in another 
trial that Libyan Arab Airlines was 
involved in a bomb plot, Britain 
suspended Libyan flights to 
London. Ifthe evidence suggesting 
Syrian involvement is convincing 
and the government foils to take 
addon, Mrs Thatcher will be 
denounced for appeasement by 
the Israelis and Jewish opinion 
here mid in the US; she will lose 
face with President Reagan and 
the European allies, and be ha- 
rassed unmercifully by the British 
popular press and Conservative 

Yet things are not as straight- 
forward as that A reprisal against 
Colonel Gadaffi was safe and easy 
enough but Syria and its President 
Assad are quite another matter, as 
even president Reagan has been 
forced to recognize. Syria' is a state - 
which is now under the direct, 
protection of the Soviet Union, its 
influence in .the Middle East is 
extensive, it. controls much of 
Lebanon, it is the key to the peace 
process, and it has close links with 
some of the most formidable 
terrorist groups. An out-and-out 
breach with Syria might therefore 
have the following repercussions: 

• Closure of Britain’s valuable 
diplomatic listening post in 
Damascus and probable with- 
drawal from Beirut as well 

• All British property and in- 
dividuals in the Middle East might 
become priority targets for Abu 
Nidal and other terrorists. 

• Other Arab states, even Saudi 

Arabia, might fed obliged to cool 
their relations and their trade wfth 
Britain for a while.- . 

• British air, flights to the Middle 
and Far EasL most of which are 
now routed over Syria, would 
have to be diverted. 

These consequences. might be 

avoided if Britain could get fufl- 
scale support and similar action 
from others. But one of foe 
unwelcome facts of life is that in 
any exercise involving serious 
sanctions against Syria we shall be 
on our own. The Americans have 
superpower reasons for keeping

likely altitude of the Europeans 
can be judged by the fact that 
when Bn tain tried a week or two 
bade to get firm backing for the 
banning of Libyan Airlines, tftqr 
offered nothing more than a bland 
statement acknowledging tbat-the- 
British action was “folly 
consistent" with EEC policy. The 
only state that would be delighted 
to back us, possibly with nzmtaiy 
action, would be Israel, tart the 
more we are associated with foe 
Israelis the worse our general 
position in foe Middle East b&. 

This last perspective brings us 
to the question of - motive: and 
here the Syrians wfl] probably 
either claim that they have been 
framed or deny the charge com- 
pletely. President Assad himsdf 
has frequently and forcefully 
stated his opposition to airline 
terrorism and it seems unlikely 
that the Syrian gomumcot would 
. have hired somebody directly m 
blow up an'Israeli airliner when it 
has so many indirect agents, such 
as Abu Nidal, at its disposaL 
Weighing afl this up, it begins to 
look as if the plot, if plot there was, 
was a piece of private enterprise 
by officials in the middle readies 
of Syrian intelligence with pos- 
sible embasssy contacts. 

This theory would reinforce the 
arguments for caution on Mis 
Thatcher’s part if action has to be 
taken againstSyria. It would really 
be very; difficult to see how the 
Syrian ambassador could be al- 
lowed to remain in London — and 
if he- is expelled, no' doubt the 
British ambassador in Damascus ; 
will be kicked’ out in reply. This 
limited tit-fbr-tet would probably 
be criticized as weakness, but it 
reflects tiie realities. Assad cannot 
disown anybody in public, for 
reasons of “face”, bid given a tittle 
leeway might be encouraged to 
dean up his act It is not much ofa 
hope, perhaps, but if we are 
realistic we nave, tike the US, to*

Yes, the Moreover Robot is foe

it's the first robot that has been 
built by a car. Did we say that 
already? Then we’ll say h a gain ,

unless the tide of 
ideas had turned against it, 
which has certainly not hap- 
pened with the tide of ideas on 
which Mrs Thatcher’s go vera- 
tnent came to power. He was 
right to pledge himself against 
irresponsible spending and 
borrowing or ride-taking. with 
inflation. For even' the fight 
against .unemployment does 
not justify the inflationary 
weapon. There are better and 
more moral ways. . 

In another speech yesterday, 
the employment secretary. 
Lord Young put unemploy- 
ment in its international con- 
text to show that we have more 
people at work than the other 
major European industrial 
countries, ~ and that we are 
certainly doing more by way of. 
training schemes than they are 
to counteract it Yesterday he 
announced some sensible new 
plans, of which the most im- 
portant was a new job training 
and work experience scheme 
for those unemployed for 
more than six months. An- 
other was the application of 
the new. Restart programme,, 
which at present covers those 
who have been unemployed : 
for 12 months, to' those who 
have been on the unemploy- 
ment' register for - only six 
months. '• 

This is the right way to deal 
with unemployment in the 
short term. For the long term 

reaffirmed his aim to reduce 
the bade tax rate from 29 to 25 
per cent, be added the rider 
that this would be done when 
it was “prudent". Prudence is, 
indeed, lhe key. The argument 
between social spending and 
tax cutting will go on, but the 
Chancellor’s speech seems to 
confirm that whatever money 
is proyidedjpr new schemes 
will be found from within the 
already agreed spending pro- 
grammes and that tax- aits 
must also fit into the borrow- 
ing target 

That is a message of signifi- 
cance for the markets. Equally 
the Chancellor was surely 
looking pointedly at the mar- 
ket when he insisted that he 
would not take risks with 
inflation. This can only imply 
defending the pound against a 
fall which would , have infla- 
tionary, consequences. ’ 

Mr Lawson will be judged 
by his actions. It is possible to 
have two views about what die 
monetary statistics are telling 
us just now, but there are ho . 
two views about the exchange 
rate. Whatever the reasons for 
the fall of the pound — of 
which the cost to the trade 
balance of lower oil prices is 
-one — its continuance would 
have 'inflationary con- 
. sequences inconsistent with 
Mr Lawson's words yesterday. 
If interest rates have to go up 
to save the pound from an 
inflationary fall, it must be 
presumed that he would accept 
that economic necessity.

Shamir is after all opposed to 
die idea of an international 
conference and while prepared 
to talk in terms of '^territorial 
compromise" by Israel is unr. 
likely to go very ter along that 
;particufer.^ ^road. The con- 
ventional wisdom has ; been 
that .any chance of advancing 
towards a Palestinian settle- 
ment would have to be made 
during the first two years of the 
coalition government, while 
Peres was in charge. 

This is to ignore several 
factors. One is that Peres 
himself will still be foreign 
minister and deputy prime 
minister so, although there will 
be differing shades of empha- 
sis over the next two years, one 
should not necessarily expect 
to see Israeli foreign policy go 
into reverse. Secondly, Shamir 
has been foreign minister since 
1984 and the policies which 
the government has pursued 
.have been in accordance with 
'certain guidelines agreed by 
the parties to the coalition 
. when it was formed. :

-two men is perhaps that when

proposal he is inclined to say 
“Yes, but—” whereas- Mr 
Shamir says “No, butLT’ The 
next two years will show 
whether, in the end, these 
mean much the same thing.

Controversy on woman priest 

From lhe Bishop at Lambeth secular ideology rawer tnan catho- 

Sir. Your leading article (October 
7), “An act of worship?", about the 
service in Church House presided 
over by a woman priest is some- 
what misleading So, I believe, is 
your Religious Affairs 
Correspondent's front-page article 
of the same date. May I attempt to 
put the record straight on certain 

1. You say the Archbishop of 
Canterbuiy has “ordained an 
investigation". This portentous 
phrase gives quite the wrong 
impression. He has asked me to 
find out what happened and to let 
faun know on bis return from the 
United States. 

2. The Archbishop has made no 
judgmental statement on the legal 
issues involved. Nor would he 
until he had had an opportunity to 
consider the facts of the matter. 

3. In response to what your 
Religious Affairs Correspondent 
wrote, may I point out that Canon 

-Law does envisage that- Holy 
Communion will sometimes be 
celebrated elsewhere than in a 
consecrated or licensed building. 
In such cases, except for ministra- 
tion. to the sick, the minister is 
required to have permission from 
the bishop of the diocese ( Canons 
of lhe Church of England, B.40).

From the Rev Father /■ ratios 
A. C. S. Bonn 

Sir, The present difficulties of the 
Church of England are so grievous 
that, if the Established Church is 
to survive as something more than 
a mechanism for legitimizing the 
residual deism of the average 
Englishman, she is in desperate 
need of firm, vigorous and faithful 

As a Church which claims to be 
catholic in her doctrine and 
apostolic in her order, she looks 
for that leadership to her bishops. 
As successors to the 12 chosen by 
Christ, our bishops are con- 
secrated within the Apostolic 
Succession to uphold the doctrine 
and discipline of the Church and 
toad as the symbols and agents of 
the unity of the Anglican flock. In 
fed, however, the present bench of 
bishops constitutes a serious ob- 
stacle to the renewal of the Church 
of England. Episcopal words and 
actions frequently seem calculated 
to undermine the faith and to 
promote disunity and division. 

Now the action of the Suffragan 
Bishop of Kingston in receiving 
Communion at- a service con- 
ducted on October 4 by a woman., 
“priest" in Church House, West- 
minster, in open defiance of the 
canons of the Church, shows us 
just how far- some of our bishops 
are prepared to go to embrace 

lie truth. 

Ifihe Church of England is to be 
'tin a healthy part of catholic 
ristendom, we must have bish- 
ops who will take seriously the 
charge made to them at their 
consecration: “Be to the flock of 
Christ a shepherd, not a wolf* feed 
them, devour them not". 

Who will rid us of our present 

Yours in Dno. 


St Stephen's Presbytery,

Kingston upon Hull, Humberside. 
October 6. 

From Deaconess N. M. Wanstall 
Sir. Lest it be assumed thal all 
members of the Movement for the 
Ordination of Women support 

illegal celebrations of the Eu- 
charist by women priests from 
abroad in this country. I am 
writing to express my own dis- 
approval of such action. I have 
every respect for the priest con- 
cerned and would love to receive 
her ministry myself, but I cannot 
approve of the deliberate disobey- 
ing of laws made in our system of 
democratic synodical govern- 

Two things should be said, 
however. Historical precedent for 
breaking Church laws has been set 
by other movements, such as the 
Oxford Movement of the 19th 
century, when they believed that 
what they did was fundamentally 
right and right for the Church. 

I also believe that the Synod's 
ruling this year that women 
ordained abroad should not be 
granted pennission to celebrate 
the Eucharist here, while their 
male colleagues may, was one of 
the most shameful and cowardly 
decisions the Synod has ever

furore in the media about the feet 
that “a woman" celebrated Holy 

That the admirable Reverend 
Joyce Bennett should be denied

bad enough, but the ridicule and

The chairman’s task 

From Mr Ludovic Kennedy 
Sir, *T am now. set up as a 
conjuror", said Nelson, "and they 
will soon find out I am far from 
one" — a saying which came to me 
after reading the headline to Mr 
Brian James's article, “Can the 
Duke bring the BBC to bed?” 
(October 2), as though he were 
some latter-day St George in -hot 
pursuit of the Portland Place, 

Exactly what do you expect him 
to do? Persuade his fellow gov- 
ernors to insist on a screening of 
any programme deemed to be in 
the least controversial? And then 
what? Set themselves up as edi- 
tors, as happened with the tem- 
porary banning of the Ulster Real 
Lives programme? How long do 
you think programme-makers 
would be prepared to accept such 
an arrangement before resigning? 

Some people do not seem to 
begin to understand the present 
structure and nature of broadcast- 
ing. The BBC is not, as certain 
MPs would like it to be, and as 
State broadcasting is in com- 
munist countries, an arm of 
government. It is a many-headed 
creature whose job is to reflect all 
shades of opinion. This includes 
criticism of the ruling party, 
whatever its colours. 

It is understandable that after 
nine years -in office the present 
ruling party must be heartily tired 

of criticisms levelled at it and 
which, , its members say, is not 
levelled to the same degree at 
opposition parties. But in a 
democracy thal is inevitable: the 
Government does things which . 
affect our daily lives; the oppo- 
sition can only talk about them. It 
was the same when Labour were in 
power and will be if they come to 
power again. Remember all those 
Labour smears about the BBC 
being part and parcel of the Tory 
establishment? 1 do. 

I have known and admired 
Duke Hussey most of my adult 
life. I have known and admired 
many of the BBC’s senior pro- 
gramme makers for 25 years: they 
are mostly decent, intelligent peo- 
ple whose sole aim (by no means 
always realised) is to put out good 
and entertaining programmes that 
will reflect the views of all sections 
of the community, thus inevitably 
pleasing some and displeasing 

What they desperately need just 
now is a chairman who, while 
establishing his own imprint, can 
both stand up to government (any 
government) and embody and 
express the purposes and values of 
what he (Duke) has already called 
“a great institution". 

Yours etc.

Peace congress 

From the. Foreign Minister of 

Sir. I read with interest the article 
by Lord Chalfont in the The 
Times (September 19) about the 
so-called “world congress de- 
voted to the international year of 
peace",- which is going to take 
place in Copenhagen later this

From Mr John Dibbiee

captain. My only information on 
signal flags comes from an RNLI 
cooking apron just given me for

sided propaganda enterprises. But 
I do not agree to his suggestion of 
howto deal with the matter — i.e_ 
to ban the World Peace Congress 
from taking place. 

Denmark is an open society, 
which allows people the freedom 
u> meet and discuss whatever they 
like within the limits set by the 
legislation. And we are. of course, 
living in another international 
climate than in 1950. when the 
British Government decided to 
refuse entry visas to about 200 
would-be delegates to a similar 
congress in Sheffield. 

It goes without saying that the 
Danish Government does not take 
part in or support the World Peace 
Congress and, as correctly stated 
by Lord Chalfont, the prepara- 
tions have already revealed its 
true face. 

At the outset lhe World Peace 
Congress planned a congress of 
about 5.000 delegates and observ- 
ers. Probably now not more than 
2,000 are going to* take part 
Among those prevented from 
coming are members of such 
organizations as Charter "77. 

I am convinced that the open 
Danish society is strong enough to 
let such events take place. It is 
most probably ihe best way of 
showing our public what b really 
going on. 

Yours faithfully.

Housing needs 
of the needy 

From Dr Richard Stone 
Sir. A million new home-owners is 
what the Housing Minister has 
promised (report. October 8L but 
what about the people who 
haven’t got the money to buy? 

Here in Bayswater. where 1 have 
been a GP for 15 years, we are 
struggling under a swelling tide of 
homeless families placed in dread- 
fully unsuitable hotels. There are 
now over 1.500 families within the 
15 minutes' walking distance from 
here to Paddington, in London as 
a whole the numbers have rock- 
eted from 890 in 1981 to 4,386 in 

These are ordinary young fam- 
ilies waiting for council accom- 
modation. They arc not misfits, 
□or people who cannot manage 
their own affaire. They are simply 
families on low incomes, and 
there is no way that they will be 
able to raise £300,000 for a three- 
bedroom house, which b the 
obscene price required around 

It is cruel to concentrate hous- 
ing policy on owner-occupation to 
the exclusion of low-rent homes. U. 
b economic madness to pay hotel 
owners £200 a week to keep a 
young family in a disgusting 
overcrowded room for months 
and even for years. It would be 
cheaper to build a council flat and 
have the family pay rent for it 

At a time when we are told that 
it is inevitable that a large number 
of people are unemployed, and 
thal low -wages are in the interest 
of the country, what good does it 
do to trumpet ‘“owner- 
occupation" when for so many 
people renting is the only way they 
will ever be able to have a home of 
their own?

Sir. Your recent "Home from"

morality of house sale profits

taxation when, in the majority of 
cases, vendors have enjoyed the 
benefit of ux relief on the mort- 
gage interest which enabled them 
to acquire the property in the first 

Tax relief b currently 29 per

levy a similar tax on any profit 
arising on any sale?

Dissidents in jail 

From the Chairman of the No- 
tiorud Council for Soviet Jewry 

Sir, Your leader on “The other 
East-West trade" (October 2) 
touches upon a most essential 
element in any meeting between 
East and West. 

The trade in souls, though 
unpalatable, has been an unfortu- 
nate necessity. Nevertheless “the 
many people in the Soviet Union 
who dissent from the policies of 
their government or who, like 
many Soviet Jews, wish to 
emigrate" do not simply wish to 
become items on an international 
"shopping list". 

Rather the dissidents and 
refuseniks require our statesmen 
not simply to plead for trade in 
one or two individuals, however 
worthy, but to ensure drat human 
rights in general and repatriation 
in particular should become an 
integral pan of fiiture discussion. 

Indeed the validity of any fresh 
agreement with the Soviet Union 
must be called into question whilst 
so many commitments previously 
entered into remain outstanding.

haule. . . The village of Borodin, 
situated 12 versts in advance of 
this town IMojaiskt, is the point on 
which it was determined to await 
the enemy. The position behind 
the village was strong enough on 
the right and centre, covered by a 
ravine and deep rivulet. But the 
left, supported by the village of 
Semenoflka, did not afford the 
same advantages. . . In order the 
better to insure the defence of the 
weak point of the position, Lieu- 
tenant-General Toutschkoff, with 
the third corps and a port of the 
Militia of Moscow, was placed in 
ambuscade behind the brushwood 
at the extremity of the left, with 
orders to act by the old road from 
Smolensko. upon the right and rear 
of the French, as soon as they 
should attack, and endeavour to 
turn our left. . . 

“Prince Koutousoff, immediate- 
ly on his arrival at this position, 
had assembled the Generate, and 
harangued the Staff; he was re- 
ceived with acclamations of the 
warmest enthusiasm. FuH of the 
sacred cause they had to defend, 
the army manifested a feeling, 
which even then gave an assurance 
of the glorious deeds, of which the 
day of the 7th was . witness. At 4 
o’clock in the morning the enemy, 
availing themselves of a thick fog, 
began their movement towards our 
left. Soon afterwards the battle 
became general and continued 
until night. The principal efforts 
took place on our left The attack 
on the redoubts was extremely 
sharp, and they were most vigor- 
ously defended. They were disput- 
ed from 7 o’clock in the morning 
until 10 o'clock with an. unexam- 
pled obstinacy. It was in this 
sanguinary combat that ' Major- 
General Count Woronaoff was 
wounded, in a bayonet chai 
against the enemy. The Command - 

er-in-Chief of the second army, 
Prince Bagration, was wounded 
soon afterwards. Nevertheless, aQ 
the attacks which the enemy made 
against the left of our position, as 
well with his infantry as with his 
cavalry, were fruitless, and re- 
pulsed with such loss, that towards 
night he was even- forced to 
abandon the little ground which he 
had gained in the morning. His 
attacks upon the centre did not 
meet with better success. Repulsed] 
at every point, he retired towards 
the beginning of the night — and 
we remained masters of the field of 
battle. On the following morning 
General Platow was sent in pursuit 
of him, and had come up with his 
rear guard, at 11 versts distal 

from the village of Borodin. 

“Such are the impressions which 
result from the first reports dis- 
patched from the field of battle. 
The loss of the enemy is immense 
in killed, wounded . and 
prisoners. . . 

A leading article the same day said: 

The Bulletin, issued on Thurs- 
day. from the Foreign office, goes 
but a little way toward relieving 
that anxiety which pervades all 
classes of people as to the present 
situation of the Russian armies, 
there is not the least ground for 
imagining that tbe Russians took, 
up any forward positions after the 
battle; there is not the least ground 
for imagining that the French were 
not on the 10th. (the date of the 
18th Bulletin) at Mojaisk. . . In 
many respects this Bulletin islittk 
calculated to satisfy those, who, 
like ourselves, desire to entertain 
reasonable hopes of the Russian 
success. We are not even informed, 
with the least degree of distinct' 
ness, what was the French loss, in 
the battle of the 7th. . .

T he first visit of a 
British monarch to 
China, from Sunday 
to Saturday of next 
week, sets the seal on a 
new era of friendly 
•* and cooperative relations between 
s “ the two countries, despite the vast 
differences in their respective 
political and economic systems. 
They have in cominon the goal of 
- raising the living standards and 
general wdl-bdng of their popula- 
tions. and their present

grees, the benefits of free enter- 
prise over too much state- 
- controlled management of the 

The solution of the Hong Kong 
problem, though it may make 
many people in that territory 
uneasy about the future, has 
shown the ability of Britain and 
China to negotiate major issues 
together in a spirit of mutual 

Deng Xiaoping, the elder states- 
man who has guided China’s 
fortunes since 1977, may resign 
from his formal official functions 
at the 13th congress of the 
Communist Party next year. But 
unless his health deteriorates 
sharply — and he shows every sign 
of robustness at 82 — his influence 
may still be felt in the formation 
and implementation of top-level 
policies for years to come. 

In abolishing many of the leftist 
policies favoured by the late 
Chairman Mao Tse-tung until his 
death in 1976. Mr Deng has 
restored a considerable measure of 
common sense and practicality to 
Chinese public life. The man the 
Queen will meet is an ardent 
follower of the maxim that one 
should "seek truth from facts" and 
not from theory or dogma. 

While professing a basic loyalty 
to Mao's philosophy, Mr Deng has 
in effect reversed most of his key 
policies, which is even more 
remarkable because he was a close 
political ally of Mao for nearly 
three decades from 1931 on. 

It was the Great Leap Forward 
and the formation of the People’s 
Communes at Mao's behest in the 
late 1950s that apparently con- 

vinced Mr Deng and the other 
senior leaders that Mao was on a 
dangerously wrong course.

Cultural Revolution from 1966

from public view until 1973. He- 
was politically unhorsed again by 
the leftist faction in the Com- 
munist Party in 1976, returned to 
high office m 1977, and assumed 
full-scale leadership late in 1978. 
Since then he has pursued reforms 
in agriculture, industry, the armed 
forces, foreign trade and invest- 
ment, education, science and the 
legal system. 

■ The arts, however, remain 
largely stagnant as though the long 
years of leftist control had 
knocked the breath out of them. 
And Mr Deng is fighting a 
constant battle with bureaucracy.

He shows no mercy towards 
those who perpetrate crimes of 
violence or rob the state on a big 
scale, and in recent years -has 
ordered the execution of 10,000 of 
the worst offenders. 

Economic crimes have become 
an important feature of the 
continuing internal debate about 
the merits of the present "open 
door" policy towards western 
business firms. 

Conservatives such as Chen 
Yun. the veteran planner and 
Politburo member, have voiced 
fears that socialism in China .will 
be corrupted by "decadent" west- 
ern and Hong Kong influences. 
Mr Deng's supporters argue that 
the best way to cope with these is 
through education, police work 
and a better standard of Chinese 
cultural output. 

The other objection to the 
“open door” policy is that it 
encourages blackmarket dealings 
and corruption, such as the big 
scandal when nearly 100,000 Japa- 
nese-made cars were illegally im-

Hong Kong has become the 
biggest source of modem luxury 
goods, which are increasingly in 
. demand on the mainland; the 
authorities are constantly havin g 
to harangue their officials about 
the undesirability of encouraging 
such expensive tastes. 

The quality of Chinese indus- 
trial products has also become 
cause for concern, with the 
authorities admitting, for exam- 
ple, that the low standard of 
locally made lifts has resulted in 
"heavy casualties". Refrigerators , 
which are nowadays of the 
products most desired by the 
ordinary people, are also.proneto 

Many business leaders in Hong 

Kong, Japan and the West are 
becoming disillusioned with the 
joint ventures they have opened in 
collaboration with Chinese firms, - 
to take advantage of the low wages 
in. China and manufocture export 
products with foreign technology 
and management expertise. 

They complain that they seldom 
make substantial profits, that the 
new legal system is confusing and 
that they are being dunged exces- 
sive taxes. Businessmen always 
complain, of course, but the level 
of dissatisfaction with the joint- 
venture concept is becoming an 
embarrassment, to Pelting. 

The biggest success story in the 
last seven years' economic re- 
forms has been .in agriculture, 
where the. revision- to . family . 
forming and the abolition of -the 
socialist “people's communes” 
has resulted in a big increase in - 

volume and variety of products.

In industry the picture is more 
mixed, as individual effort -must 
be thoroughly coordinated with 
the work of the factory as a whole. 
Incentive schemes, dismissals of- 
bad workers, and even share-issues 
have foiled to solve the outstand- 
ing problems.

Dengist modernization oro- 
sramme to date have been 
achieved in the rural areaTof 
the People s Republic. 

Under Peking's watchful 
eye prasants in recent years 
have developed light, rural 
industries to supplement their 

regular income derived from 
growing crops for slate quotas. 
Moreover, stale quotas for 
staple crops such as grain, rice 
and sorghum have become 
more flexible, and can now 
sometimes be arranged by 

As a result there are 4.S 
million rural enterprises 
employing 40 million people. 
In 1984 the combined rev- 
enues of these enterprises 
weres valued at 171 billion 
renminbi (about £32 billion), 
equal to China's gross national 
product in 1964. 

For a while at the beginning 
of tbe year agriculture looked 
as though it might become 
Deng Xiaoping's political 
Achilles' beet Summer floods 
in the north-eastern provinces 
of Liaoning. Jilin and 
Heilongjiang, coupled with 

droughts in Hubei, Hunan 
and Sichuan provinces, meant 
a lower harvest Production 
fell by 27 million tonnes on 
1984's record 407 million 
tonnes. That broke a string of 
seven bumper harvests that 
had made China not only self- 
sufficient but an exporter of 

As a result Mr Deng’s 
opponents, notably Chen 
Yun, 82, the party’s disci- 
plinarian and leading conser- 
vative, attacked the Dengist 
rural responsibility system, 
which in some cases has 
allowed peasants to drop 
wheat-planting for other jobs. 

Throughout 1986 the cen- 
tral government in Peking has 
kept up a steady barrage of 
propaganda aimed at en- 
couraging farmers to grow

have received careful scrutiny. 

However, there are limits to 
what the central government 
will do for farmers in general 
and wheat growers in particu-

guage China Daily newspaper 
noted in April: "While the

Despite these successes, 
China feces some key prob- 
lems in agriculture. For one 
thing, arable fend is beco mi ng 
a rare commodity. Only45per 
cent of China's total fend mass 
is fit for agriculture, and more 
and more of it is being gobbled 
up by expanding towns and 
rural housing developments. 

Some sociologists in tire 
West now say that, because of 
these growing urban areas, 
China’s urban population con- 
stitutes one-fifth of the total, 
tbe rural population three- 
fifths, and' a population that

coal production would increase 
to a billion tonnes by tbe same 
year, and a renoratioa and 
expansion of ofl fields would 
boost crade-oil output to 150 
million tonnes anmxally. 

11 is not certain that these 
goals can be achieved without 
opening up more onshore o3 
sites, offshore having proved a 
disaster in the past year. 
Overall energy conservation, 
according to the seventh five- 
year plan, should save 100 
million tonnes of standard coal 
between 1986 and 1990. 

Peking irodd like to in- 
crease the total volume of 
freight carried by rafl, road, 
water and air transport by 30 
percent in 1990. The country 
now has 52^00 km (32400 
miles) of railways, 926,000 km 
(578,750 miles) of roads, 
109400 km (68425 miles) of 
inland river routes, 256,000 
km (160,000 miles) of air 
routes and 11,000 km (6475 
miles) of pipelines. 

Upgrading and expanding 
those networks translates into 
new construction and new 
equipment procurement, 
which means potentially hoge- 
markets for foreign firms. 

China's raihvaysyrtem ism- 
terrible shape. It carries 80 per 
cent of tbe country's freight 

and is being asked to do ranch 
more. Two.years ago, accord- 
ing to one rafl-e qui proent sales 
trader, China reported a short- 
age of 35,000 railway wagons 
a day, which meant that 

100.000 were needed but only 

65.000 were available. 

The railways ministry re- 
cently reported tiiat in 198410 
million tonnes of coal, 
stranded at .various loading 
points along the rafl fines. 

Main ports are 
to expand 

never readied their destma- 
tions. Because of the poor 
coal-distribntion . system, 
householders in Peking are 
now bo r rowing frieods^tracks 
todriveoatoftowntoboy coal 
and t ra nsport it back to their 
homes for use this winter 

China’s main ports are also 
destined for expansion. Li 
Peng, a vice premier, has 
announced that all tnivnt 
departments, other *h— rafl 
and telecommunications, 
should separate their business 
from government functions. 

As a. first step the central 
governmen t hate' put tbe 

•ai h nin fet wrti nw ^frf* Shanghai- 
«nH Dalian harbours into the 
hands of local authorities. ^ 

During the next five yeais- 
China plans to build more 
than 200 new berths at major 
east coast ports. One hundred' 
and four of the new berths wfll 
accommodate more than 
10400 tonne-doss freighters* 

By tbe end < rf 1990, China.' 
hopes to -have 1460 berths, 
indarfing 321 for deep-water 
vessels, with a total handlings 
capacity of 550 million tonnes. - 
compared to 330 mfllioa, 
tonnes last year. Such meat 
sores would undotitedly help 
reduce China’s international 
trade deficit, estimated to be- 
$6 bflfion, but forecast to go to ‘ 
$14 biflion by die end of tito 

Still, the best-laid plans of 
bureaucrats in Peking can be 
successful only if the rest of 
the country fells in behind 
them. The planners are hotd-r. 
rag their collective breath to. 
see how 1986 shapes up for dm 
Chinese economy. 

A western diplomat in Pe- 
king observed: ’The planners! 
have put their finger on what is 
happening in China's economy 
and what needs to be draw. 
Now it is up to the officials in 
the provinces to make sure dtp 
plan. is property executed,".. ^

For example, cement prices

meiafaby 3 to 5 per cent..

The State Statistical Bureau 
(SSB) reported last August 
that while output of light 
consumer goods increased up- 
wards of 55 per cent, their 
sales rose lessthan 10 per can, 
resulting in huge stockpiles 
because consumers were 
unwilling to spend money on

Acme energy shortages are 
taking their toll. Official es- 
timates say that 20 per cent of 
factories on the highly indus- 
trialized east coast are out of

Transport bottlenecks leave 
goods in warehouses, and 
poor packaging, according to 
the China Daily , has resulted 

in hundreds of millions of 
pounds* worth of damage. 

The -Economic Daily. 
China's leading financial 
newspaper, reported th3t 
state-run enterprises, which 
account for 64.4 per cent of 
industrial output lost rmb 26 
billion in 1985. 

By the end of August this 
year, the paper reported. 17.6 
per cent of the enterprises 
were in the red but it gave no 
further figures. Another jour- 
nal the Peking Review, says 
the government spent rmb 48 

billion or 20 per cent of state 
revenues on subsidies to state 
firms losing money m 1985. 

To make enterprises more 
accountable for their losses, 
the nation's first-ever bank- 
ruptcy legislation was in- 
troduced last summer but 
after reportedly intense in- 
ternal debate; was scuttled in 

Perhaps the trickiest prob- 
lem in rejigging the industrial 
structure is restraining the 
Communist Party from med- 
dling. Industrial "concerns in 
China have a manager and a 
party secretary, who have 
traditionally shared aD de- 

Now the plan says the party 
secretary must stay out of 
administration and tend to 
workers’ ideological welfare, 
letting the manager get on 
with administration. Chinese 
newspaper accounts indicate 
there has been bitter resis- 
tance. and even skulduggery, 
by party bosses trying to keep 
their power. 

"One factory "manager of a 
relatively successful manufac- 
turing concern interviewed in 
J985 was asked about his 
relationship with the party 
secretary . He said there was no 
resistance and that coopera- 
tion was excellent. The key to 
his success was made evident 
by his admission that he was 
also the factory's party 
secretary 1 .

In May, Britain and China 
signed a £300 nriZtiou soft- 
loan agreement intfiHW ini- 
tially te finance five big 
projects for which British 
companies are bidding. 

These are a power station at 
Yoeyang, Hunan province 
(Balfour Beatty and NEI), an 
optical fibre factory hi Shang- 
hai (Standard Telephones and 
Cables), a steel tribe min at 
Daye, Hubei (Davy McKee), a 
feel injection fine for a tractor 
plant at Lnoyang, Henan (Lu- 
cas CAV) and two shaliow- 
dranght container vessels for 
foe Ocean Shipping Line 
(British Shipbuilders). 

Looking farther ahead, 
Davy McKee is part of a 
British - and West German 
c onsor tium hoping to equip a 
US$3 to $4 bOfiou integrated 
steelworks at Ningho, 

Zbepang. The consoctism has 
been put together by Sir YX 
Pan, foe Hong Kong shipping 

However, success in all 
these projects depends on 
getting the price right. With 
the Yoeyang power project for 
example, it has been noted 
that the Chinese corporation 
charged with procuring gen- 
erating eqnipment ' from 
abroad 1ms been acquiring it 
from Japanese and 
American/Cana di an/I taliaa 
suppliers at what British com- 
panies consider giveaway 

Chinese unwillingness to 
compromise overprices makes 
it hard for foreign companies 
to show big profits in China. In 
addition, it is an expensive 
country in- terms’ of running 
costs and of time. ■’ V. 

It is estimated that it costs 
between £250,000 and 
£300,000 a year to keep a 
representative in Peking, and 
reaching decisions takes 
longer than in the West be- 
cause of translation problems 
and the need to explain basic 

firaqirfal anil ttftoifal Blat- 
ters to the Chinese. 

Because it is short of foreign 
exchange, China is is keen to 
promote joint ventures, but 
these have not proved attrac- 
tive to foreign investors. 

Among British companies 
involved in joint ventures is 
Pfikzngton, which is setting op 
a flat-glass plant in Shanghai. 
Delays last year m getting 
cement and steel have put back 
foe start of production by eight 
months, to September 1987. 
The factory will produce 5,000 
tonnes ofgfassa week. 

Another way for foe Chi- 
nese to save foreign exchange 
is through counter-trade. The 
Ministry of Foreign Economic 
Relations and Trade has set up 
a counter-trade section and 
companies are likely to face 
more demands for it from their 
Chinese partners. 

One area in which foe 
British are internationally 
strong but have yet to do much 
in China is consultancy. 

Ricardo Consulting En- 
gineers of Shoreham-by-Sea, 
West Sussex, first went to 
China in 1977, just after the 
Cultural Revolution, and has 
since won contracts to design 
engines for lorries, cars, trac- 
tors, ships and locomotives. 

Business over the last nine 
years has been worth between 
£4 million and £5 milbon, aot a 
huge sum, but Ricardo consid- 
ers China of long-term 
importance. ■

looks very promising: 
from a £170.000 loss in

1982. profits soared from

A dilapidated educational sys- 
tem constitutes the biggest 
i obstacle to harnessing China's 
most valuable resource — its 

The Communist govern- 
ment has made some progress 
in education since it came to 
power in 1 949. when there was 
an 80 per cent illiteracy rate. 
That has now been reduced to 
around 25 per cent and, 
according to government fig- 

. . : , .... _____ 

Eyes oh the blackboard: taking notes during a chemistry lesson in a Peking middle school 

cues, 90 percent of school-age 
children are now in school. 

Educational reforms 
adopted earlier this year in- 
cluded the abolition of middle 
school entrance exams, thus 
allowing primary school chil- 
dren to enter middle school 
automatically, space permit- 
ting. The goal is to have at 
least nine, rather than five, 
years of education for children 
by the end of the century. 

Like China's reforms in 
other sectors, the educational 
ones show that the 
government's heart is in the 
right place but alter that it is 
bade to square one: how to 
remedy shortages of teachers 
and educational facilities, 
including the most basic one- 
classrooms. Some major cities 
are facing a possible half-day 
class schedule because of lack 
of space. 

Forget cabs, get on your bike 

China is reaching a plateau in 
its efforts to attract foreign 
tourists. The mystique of a 
country which had shut the 
door on the West for a 
generation is evaporating as it 
becomes belter known and the 
Chinese will have to improve 
the service they offer the 
visitor if they are to meet their 
ambitious targets for growth. 

These envisage three mil- 
lion foreign, that is, non- 
ethnic Chinese, tourists by 
1990 and between seven and 
eight million by the year 2000. 
The figure for 1985 was 1.37 
million, which means that the 
numbers must more than 
double both over the next four 

years and in the succeeding 

Annual growth between 
1980 and 1985 averaged just 
over 21 per cent and it was 
presumably on the basis of 
this performance that the 
goals were set However, in 
the first seven months of this 
year the rate fell drastically. 

Whereas the overall in- 
crease from 1984 to 1985 was 
20.8 percent, that for January 
to July 1986 was only 7.1 per 
cent higher than that for the 
same period last year. 

The foil was most marked 
for Japan, which supplied 
more than a third of China's 
foreign tourists in 1985: from 

27.8 per cent to 3 per cent 

The United States, the sec- 
ond largest source of overseas 
visitors, showed an increase 
from 12.8 per cent in 198S to 

18.9 per cent for January to 
July this year, but the number 
of Australian* dropped by 9.3 
per cent, compared to a 7.5 per 
pent growth in 1985. 

The number of Britons 
slowed to a 10.8 per cent rise, 
against 14.7 per cent last year, 
when the total number of 
British visitors was 71,352. 

The first reaction of tourist 
officials in Peking is to ascribe 
these fluctuations to external 
factors, such as the general 
election in Japan in July and 

In China's capital Beijing, Plessey is now 
installing its computerised urban traffic control 
system, incorporating SCOOT -amethod of 
providing a vehicle-responsive signal strategy 
which automatically adjusts to the effects of 
trafficflow. ... 

. With five million bicycles alone to cope 
with7p[us motortraffic and pedestrians, the 
system’s sophisticated sensors will come into 
their own, continuously monrtoringtraffic 
Winning contracts of this complexity is 
nothing new to Plessey. In telecomms and 
defence electronics - and 
in the microchip tech- 
nology these systems 
are based on - 
Plessey has beaten 
the toughest 
competition to win 
major export orders 
throughout the 

in China? 

It says a lot about Plessey 
technology. Even more about its 
marketing skills. 

The height of high technology. 

short-term a view of the 
industry, milking foreign vis- 
itors for all they were worth 
without stopping to think that 
this might discourage them 
from coming again or 
recommending the country to 
their friends. 

From a trip to Peking and 
along part ofthe Silk Road last 
month, I would readily agree 
about the potential; the 
Forbidden City, the Ming 
tombs, the Great Wall, the 
pagodas and ramparts of 
Xi’an, the fort at Jiyuaguan 
and the Buddhist caves at 
Dunhuang are great and 
enduring attractions. How- 
ever, certain things need to be 
rectified if that potential is to 
be realized. 

First, too many hotels are in 
the suburbs, so the- tourist is 
isolated and unable to scroll 
out and enjoy the fascinating 
street life of the dty centres. 
Second, in the rush to earn 
foreign currency new hotels 
are tak in g guests before they 
are ready for them; the Oasis 
in Turpan was surrounded by 
builder’s nibble and open 
manholes, and the bathroom 
was covered in tar. 

In Peking, it is absurdly 
difficult to get a taxi; never 
have I seen so many drivers 
unwilling to take passengers. 
As is the case in other capital 
cities, hotel and restaurant 
staff tend to be ruder and. 
miitfes less enthusiastic than in 
tire provinces. 

Even sadder is the apparent 
fall in the standard of Peking 
cuisine. In the Tingliguan 
restaurant at the Summer 
Palace, for example, the table- 
cloth was filthy, beer was 
served in a bottle with a 
broken neck and the food was 
stale and lukewarm. 

As well as developing then- 
main tourist centres, the Chi- 
nese should follow the exam- 
ple of India and increase the 
choice of specialist tours. - 

And finally, in Peking, 
encourage everyone to hire 
bicyies. a perfect way - of 
exploring a city which is 
remarkably flat and where the 
bicyle rent per day is a mere 
two yuan. 


Money helps. The new five- 
year (1986-1990) plan calls for 
a 72 per cent increase in 
educational funds — to 116.6 
billion remninbifabout £22 
billion) — over the previous 
five-year period. Though a 
substantial improvement, it 
malms only a drat in the task 
of shoring up an educational 
system which came to a halt 
when schools were closed for 
the better pan of die Cultural 

Revolution, leaving a genera- 
tion without schooling. 

China estimates it need&an 
addition of XS million pri- 
mary and secondary teachers 
to its current workforce of 8 
million by 1990 for significant 
improvement Teacher train- 
ing alone is an enormous task 
which is made more diffi craut 
by the problem of attracting 
people and keeping them in 
the profession!. Salaries can 
often be 20-30 per cent lower 
than those or . an average 
worker and benefits, such as 
bfwiQtig which in China » 
provided by the employer, are

pleasant, . with . hot only 
crowded classrooms bu t also

Many teachers want an-

door” connections, required 
in China's draconian work 
assignment system, they have 
managed to get themselves 
transferred to other jobs. 
Though exact figures are not

These are inadequate means 
of transport, particularly by 
air, shortage of accommoda- 
tion, notably in Peking, 

Shanghai. , Xi’an and Guilin, 
and lack of qualified person- 
nel such as hotel managers 
and guides. 

The Chinese are tackling the 
first of these problems by 
expanding airports and buying 
more aircraft including 10 
BAe-146 jetliners from 

As for accommodation, the 
new five-year plan (1986- 
1990) provides for the addi-

There is also a demand for 
medium -priced hotels — 100-

to meet a trend to individual, 
as opposed to group, travel. 

To train personnel, China 
has foreign langn ag e in-

MrCandido Jacuzzi, inven- 
tor of the whirlpool bath 

which colloquially .beare his 

name, died at SuaC.t^AtTrt)- 

na. on October 7. He was 81 
He was bom, the youngest 
of seven brothers, m toe 
village ofCasara della Debzia, 
in^ne mountainous Fnuna 
region of nonb-easiem Italy. 

Besides his six brothers he also 

had six sisters. Life was harsh 
and the Jacuzzi parents emir 
grated to the Untied- States, 
settling in California. ' 

■ After working at a variety ot 

jobs the brothers set up a 
machine shop, selling a vtatiw 
products which they deagnwi 
themselves. Their first big 
success was in airscrews. They 
evolved a method of mawifi 
propellers with layers of tough 
wood, a technique which pro- 
duced excellent . results, and 
secured them a contract with 
toe infant United States Air 
Force, then growing rapidly 
with the need to provide 
squadrons for the air fighting 
over the Western front. 

In this the eldest brother, 
Rachele, provided the techni- 
cal expertise and Can dido 
guided the company in its 
expansion .from a small ma- 
chine shop to a production 
line for thousands of units. 

With the end of the war and 
a slump in demand for mili- 
tary aircraft propellers, the 
brothers turned to the wider 
aspects of design in what 
.promised to be an expanding 
market for civil aircraft. This 
led to tbdr building tbe first 
fully . enclosed cabin mono- 
plane to be flown in America 
and might have sealed their 
future in the aircraft industry, 
but for a fatal accident. 

In 1921. the Jacuzzi high- 

ing for luxury and

musrcian. be received an ex- 
pensive education and later 
enrolled in a military academy 
in Sichuan Province. He was a 
member of a student detach- 
ment which took part in the 
1911 revolution that over- 
threw China's last imperial 
dynasty, losing an eye and so 
earning toe nickname “The 
one-eyed dragon.” - 

He joined toe Communist 
Party, m 1926, and tbe follow- 
ing year played an important 
role in the abortive Nanchang 
uprising. He then left China 
forthe Soviet Union, where he 
studied for two years at the 
Moscow Infantry School and 
the Red Army University.

years later and rapidly rose to

m south China. One of his 
successes was among :the

Yellow River, and in' 1948 
played a major .part in defeat- 
ing toe Kuomintang forces 
Chiang Kai-shek, m ; south

in 1955 and was elected fo the 
Politburo the following yea-. ■ i 

Due to near blmdn^s, Uo 
ceased, to take part in public 
functions after his re-election / 
to the Politburo in 19T7, and

By John Newell 

A robot that can dioose any 
component it wants from a 
storage bin of mixed objects 
bas been developed, by a 
British research centre. The 
automaton has been given a 
highly developed sense of 
tench to match Us artificial 

The tactile sensor developed 
by the Microelectronics 
Applications Research In- 
stitute of Newcastle upon Tyne 
will enable a production-tine 
robot assembling a 
carburetter, for example, to 
pick the right component out 
of a bag of assorted parts, 
using only its sense of teach. 

The institute is a consortium 
formed by Newcastle Univer- 
sity, Newcastle Polytechnic 
and CAP, a commercial soft- 
ware company. 

Hie robot they have devel- 
oped can nse the same teach 
sense to select toe wanted 
component . from a moving 
conveyor belt- -' 

When tinmans pick np and 

handle objects such as pencils 
or rulers, ora hand is giddied 
nearly all the way by ora sense 
of sight and of the position of 
our Arm and hand. Bnt toe 
final approach and . tbe actual 
grasping is graded by teach, 
which also enables a Mind- 
folded man to distingnish one 
object from another, that is 
sense which has now been 
made available to robots. 

Their finger-tip sensor has 
over L.000 mutate transducers, 
pressure sensors each contain- 
ing piezoelectric crystals 
which continually transform 
toe pressure on each sensor 
into a proportional electric 
current The 1,000-odd era- 
rents. representing differential 
pressures over the surface of a 
sensor are continually scanned 
by a microprocessor, which 
passes its data to another 


That converts the data into 
the electronic- equivalent of a 
Mmdfokled man's mental im- 
age of an object he is holding 

and manipulating. 

A robot with this tactile 
sense is taught to pick toe 
correct component out ofa bag 
or off a production fine by first 
being given the right object to 
boH.wfifle it stores tbe rele- 
vant information in its 

Yhr institute developed the 
system as the leader of & team 
including the West German 
Institute of Production 
Automation and the Greek 
University of Patras, sup- 
ported’ by toe EEC Esprit 

Work commissioned under 
Esprit is intended to get 
member countries working to- 
gether on high-technology 
projects; by combining re- 
sources they should match the 
efforts of Japan rad die 
United States.

Miss Cheryl Crawford, vet- 
eran American theatre direc- 
tor and producer, died in New 
York on October 7. She was 

Besides producing Broad- 
way smash hits like Brigadoon 
(1948). she put her energies at 
toe disposal of non-commer- 
cial theatre as, variously, ac- 
tor. director and organiser. 
She also staged toe American 
premieres of modern Europe- 
an classics like Brecht's Moth- 
er Courage and her Children 
and Max Frisch's Andorra. 

She . was bom in Akron, 
Ohio, on i September 24, 1902. 
Her earliest ambition was to 
become- a missionary, but in 
her teens this was superseded 
by an infatuation with toe 
theatre after she had tasted 
success as Lady Macbeth in a 
local amateur production. 

She went to New York 
where, in 1922, she joined the 
Theatre Guild as a secretary 
But she was soon acting and 
helping on toe production 
side. From 1928 to 1930 she 
was the company's casting 

She was also one of toe 
moving spirits in toe evolu- 
tion of Group Theatre, which 
based itself on toe Moscow 
Art Theatre and the 
Stanislavsky Method. It ini- 
tially operated under Theatre 
Guild aegis, but in 1931 Miss 
Crawford joined Harold 
Ourman and Lee Strasbure as 
founders of an independent 
enterprise. -She - directed - a 

number of productions for H, 
beginning with Paul Green’S 
The House of Connelly (1931). 

Her first independent pro- 
duction was All - the Living, 
which she staged at the Fulton 
Theatre in 1938, and she went 
on to present a host of plays, 
ranging from hit musicals' to 
modern drama. 

Another big success besides 
Brigadoon was Lerner and 
Loewe's Paint Your WaggQK 
and she numbered four Ted- 
' nessee Williams plays -among 
them - Sweet Bin of Youth - 

among her credits. 

But her instinct, as she 
admitted, could err. She^r 
turned down Williams's Cat * 
on a Hoi Tin Roo f, West Side 
Story and .Arthur Miller’s 
Death (f a Salesman 
depressing.” she said, when 
she read it). 

In 1946 she founded the 
American Repertory Theitre 
with Eva Le Gallieime and 
Margaret Webster, and from 
1947 was involved with Meth- 
od-based Actors' Studio, 
founded by Elia . Kazan. In 
1950 she became one of the

No wonder the financial' mar-

Continuing the programme 
of policy pronouncements 
yesterday, Mr Malcolm 
Rifldnd. Secretary of State for 
Scotland, outlined the 
Government's . plans 1 for the 
replacement of household 
rates with a residents Charge. 

The pew/ system, will be 
installed in Scotland before 
the general ejection as a model 
for the rest -of the country if 
the .Tories a® returned- ax the 
next election.. 

The- Cghancellor was at- 
tacked after- his- speech by the 
shadow Chancellor,- Mr Roy 
Hatterdey.-who .called It “the 
most vacuous ever”. 

He accused' the Govern- 
ment of wasting millions of- 
poimds of- public money -oh 
propping up. .the'- pound U) 
postpone' interest . rate .in- 
creases until after the Conser- 
vative conference. .. 

The - result, he predicted, 
wouki be a . bigger, rise than 
would have beeu needed if the 
Chancellor had acted earlier. 

Mr Christopher. Patten, the 
Minister, -for Overseas 
Develop men t and an ; idol of 
the younger Tory Wets, told a 
meeting, of the Tory Reform 
Group in Bournemouth last 
night that the. party bad to 
remain a 'broad church rather 
than become a “narrow, sect of 
the cmdectabte". . 

The voters were in danger of 
becoming bored witb the Gov- 
ernment . and were' not 'per- 
suaded yet that they had done 
enough -to safeguard basic 
health and -welfare

sis on the Government’s 
achievements than attacks on

than -by what we dp and what 
we say aboutthe {dans of the 
SDP and their sidekioks” -

After three days .of any 
Conservative conference, lUi 
Qgy *to understand: the 
powerful, if no longer on* 
inal. movement in Engbsh 
literature which ensures that 
every-year these occasions are 
depicted as oiB?nized syco- 
phancy. a creeps' convention. 

Apart from a few lapses 
over the years, I have myself 
never been part of that move- 
ment. Quite apart from any- 
thing else, it has always 
seemed to. me .to be a school 
of writing which invites from 
the reader the obvious retort 
if it is so boring, what are you 
doing . writing about it. « 
attending Conservative con- 
ferences is so repellant why 
not find ah alternative way of 
earnings living? • , 

■ in any "case, at the.hearl of 
the movement, there has 
always beena fetal misunder- 
standing of the nature of the 
conference. It should not be 
compared rod . contrasted 
with a Labour conference, or 
nowadays with the. liberal 
Assembly. -It should be seen 
in relation' to other .English 
institutions: - - the country 
weekend; the wedding where 
the men hire- their togs from 
Moss Bros; Glyndebourne; 
the memorial , service. You 
should no more expect at- 
tacks on the leadership from 
the floor' at a Conservative 
conference than -you- should 
expect attacks, on the 
hostess’s cooking from the 
floor of a South Kensington 
buffet supper. 

Another error is the wilful 
misrepresentation of the so- 
cial tone of.the occasion. It is 
predominantly middle-class 
— not upper-middle nor 
lower-middle, but middle- 
middle. Most of these 
people's idea , of a grandee is 
Mr Julian CritcWey. Yes- 
terday, for example, a woman 
chairing a debate — a Dame, 
moreover — congratulated a 
woman speaker on . having 
recently got married. Mr 
CritcWey — who has written , 
more- about class than any 
writer other than Man: — ■ 
would point - oiif that, when 
he- Was first -in the; Conser- 
vative Party, -one only

ting married. One felicitated a 

All you need, to get through 

the week, is a reasonable the way of life of 
the apolitical English middle 
class: the backbone of jthe 
party. At the Labour con- 
ference last week, the cor- 
ridors rang with rastaferian- 
coiffured' women shrieking 
such imprecations as Spur 
opposition to black sections 
makes you a racist, Kinnock" 
when the party leader scur- 
ried by. 

At Bournemouth, the girls' 
cries tend to be ones of 
recognition, such as: “ft’s

the same ball. I'm 

Sadly, this great annual 
festival of EngUshry wilTa!- 
ways get a dreadful : . press 
from brutes who have no 
imaginative sympathy with 
civilizations so different from 
their own. Every year fee 
poor conference chairman j® 
singed out for special 
persecution. His is- not the 
same office as that of tir

man is always an unknown', 
businessman, mummified m 
a good, dark-blue suit, from 
the grand-sounding;; power,

At Labour conferences, the 
chairman proceeds on fee- 
assumption, that all speakers 
from the floor are goin^ to be 
enemies of the leadershmaxjcf 
indeed of Western civilian 
tion. Among theTories, 
the opposite. The only, oppft 
nents of the Goverari

from the floor will praise t&fc'

tial that they do not take too 
long about iL To get ri&of

venes with a deft “We're aB 
enjoying your speed! im- 
mensely, but I must regret- 
fully ask you to draw 
remarks to a close; Coon 
Smug-Natterer.'-' ~ -B; . 
remember, the conference 
chairman should be seen in

Charles Hamhra, above left, and Sir Michael Butler: Opportunities through co-operation 

Italian boost for Hambros 

By Richard Thomson, Hanlring Pniro^jinq^nl 

Hambros Bank yesterday 
announced the formal link-up 
with Institute Bancario San 
Paolo di Torino, Italy’s third 
hugest hank. At the same 
time, Hambros boosted its 
capital, by £91 mflliott with a 
loan from San Paolo. 

This is the first m a network 
of co-operative relationships 
Hambros hopes to establish 
with banks in Europe. 

The £50 million loon takes 
the form of a 15-year subordi- 
nated loan costing Ms more 
than the London interbank 
offered rate. It will qualify as 
loan capital under Bank of 
England rales and boost 
Hambros’ capital base to 
about £180 mUlifa. 

San Paolo is taking a 65 per 
cent state in Hambros as an ■ 
investment, and the two in- 
stitutions win have- directors 

on each other's boards. 

Mr Charles Hambra, group 
rffii limn, said: “Hambros b

operation with other financial 

Sir Michael Butler, a former 
British Ambassador to the 
European Ec on omic Commu- 
nity, arranged the deaL He 
was recruited by Hambros to 
set up a network of banks co- 
operating with Hambros 
across Europe. 

Sir Michael said: “By 1992 
there will be freedom to pro- 
vide financial services throug- 
hout the EEC and with 
exchange controls disappear- 
ing In many countries, 
opportunities are already 
opening up.

Sir Michael said most of the 
business was likely to be in 
cross-frontier mergers and ac-

fund management services. 

He added that the link was 
likely to be different with each 
institution and would not al- 
ways involve a shareholding.

Hambros said an arrange- 
ment with 1 German bank was 
in the process of being ar- 
ranged. The network will ini-

and the Netherlands.

The Opec oil ministers are 
still working on what they 
describe as a radical new

it is unlikely that it will be 
completed until December 
and introduced oh January 1.

gas share 

By Teresa Poole 

Business Correspondent 

The Government is seeking 
to avoid a quick flowback of 
shares to Britain if it derides 
10 m ahead with overseas sales 
of British Gas shares as part of 
next month's £6 billion 

It is considering whether to 
sell shares to small investors 
as well as institutions in the 
United States, Japan and 
some European countries to 
ensure a wide base of 

A final decision on selling 
shares abroad has not yet been 
taken, but advisers are con- 
cerned to avoid a repeat ofthe 
immediate profit-taking in 
overseas markets — in particu- 
lar the US — that came after 
the British Telecom sale. 

The placement of shares 
with foreign financial institu- 
tions this time will be far more 
broadly based. 

Banks taking part in any 
overseas share offering, which 
is expected 10 account for 20 
per cent of tbe equity, will 
have to promise 10 make an 
active market in British Gas 
shares after privatization and 
to provide proper research 
coverage. A concerted effort is 
also being made to educate 
foreign investors about the 
longer term attractions of the 

Mr Chris Brier! ey. manag- 
ing director for economic 
planning at British Gas. said 
yesterday that the decision on 
an overseas share sale would 
be delayed as long as possible. 

However, the ground work 
is already well under way. and 
the chairman. Sir Denis 
Rooke. will head a British Gas 
team visiting Japan next week. 
Further roadshows will take 
place in North America and 
Europe after tbe publication of 
the pathfinder prospectus at 
the end of October. 

Although applications for 
British Gas prospectuses -are 
coming in at a rate of 4,000 an 
hpur v financial advisers be- 
lieve that there wSU be enough 
shares on offer to meet domes- 
tic mid foreign demand. After 
the massive interest in TSB 
shares, it is thought that 
British Gas could end up with 
up to eight million 

Speaking at the opening of 
British Gail’s biggest-ever ex- 
hibition at Altrincham, 
Greater Manchester, Mr 
Briertey confirmed that the 
company planned to develop 
its oil activities and expand 
into energy-related businesses 
after privatization. 

He added: “We will be very 
active in considering any 
opportunities to acquire

him has a new cutting etfce. 

5JSg .**' chair ' is Brian 
woifson, who was the leader 
ot a consortium which- nine 
njomhs ago bought Wembley 
Stadium, in London. 

Business, he maintains, is 
fun and says that since every 
successful man makes mis- 
takes he works so hard lo be 
able lo afford his next mistake. 

; he is seemingly 

indefatigable. He is. also chairs 
man of AngloNordic Hold- - 
^ engineering' group 
o 1 . .20 factories throughout 
Britain, which exploit a.num- 
bcr of different nicbe-prod- 
ucts. from aviation ground 
handling equipment to 
specialist agricultural 

His many directorships in^ 
elude some in the United 
States, with -the aerospace 
division of Hercules at 
Wilmington, ‘Delaware, and 
Kcprier-T regofe," specialists ' in 
decision analysis Strategy; -for 
cated in Prince town. New 
Jersey. " r '' ' 

These non-executive - in- 
terests are valuable, be says, 
because it teaches radical 
questions to ask about a 
business that spring from the 
fresh mind from outside. • 

He said- “It enables you to 
go back to ask more questions 
of your own business. I regard 
u as a self-cleansing process." 

He has close ties with ibe. 
University of Pennsylvania at 
Philadelphia. Including ’ 
membership of the advisory 
board of the Wharton Centre 
for International Management 
Studies. He is also a governor 
of the Lauder Institute there. 

The BIM cleariy.wiU not be 
left short on the latest trends 
in US thinking on manage- 
ment matters, although Mr 
Woffson, a classic man -of 
action, says he is hot a great 
one for theories as such. 

His network of business 
inieresis spans more than 20 
countries and until compar- 
atively recently he spent-more 
time out of Britain than in it. 
He still has a formidable 
schedule of intercontinental 
commuting, but the balance 
has shifted

Chairmanship of the Wem-- 
blev consortium means a -lot ■ 
mo re work at evenings and the 
weekends, he said It is a 

Brian Wolfeon at Wembley; “Commerce is the best game in town" 

business venture but for Mm 
rather more than that. 

He said “It brings together 
so many of the things I have 
ever been and done. It is 
almost as if 1 have spent my 

Bfe geffing ready fpr ft." . - 

: Asa youngster he was a" 400

as keenly as he ever did 
- His father died when be was 
15 and he was out in the 
university of life, ft taught him 
weTL He started off in a motor 
engineering job in LiverpooL 
By 18 he was in business with 
two partners and then went on 
to build his first group of 
companies only to be head- 
hunted in his mid-twenties, 
by the Granada group: 

Hist he was involved, with 
leasing, then became chief 
executive of the television 
rental subsidiary, rising to 
joint managing directorof the 
Granada group. He bad nine 
years with Granada leaving in 
1971 at 35. 

He recalled: “It was starting 
all over again. This time I 
looked around the world 
starting with Australia and 
South East Asia" 

He established Ms first links 
with Smidlh, 'a Danish com- 
pany which is among the 
world leaders in cement plant, 
and put together an inter- 
national group with interests 
ranging from television rental 
in a score of countries to the 
Volkswagen importer in Mex- 
ico. In 1976 Mr Wolfeon 
started building up Anglo- 
Nordic.- ._ 

. :• It .was no surprise when Tie 
became. .the first non-North . 
American president of:' the" 
Young ^'-Presidents'-' s Associ- 
ation. whose membership in- - 
dudes some of the world's 
brightest and most successful 

So what BIM has gained is a 
hard-nosed businessman with 
an international view devel- 

oped in coping with the nitty 
gritty demands of many dif- 
ferent national markets. 

He has shown that as well as 
a businessman he is also a 
proselytiser during his long- 
time suppprt .or the BIM 
where he has been , chairman 
of" the' ' institute's education 
and ^management devejopr 
ment committee. . 

Sir Peter, -when be handed 
over the BIM chairmansMp 
last month, said of Mr 
Wolfeon: “We are lucky to 
have in the new chairman 
someone who has served the 
institute for many years with 
great distinction, particularly 
in his unifying vision of the 
' interdependent' needs Of in- 
dustry and education.” 

Mr Wolfeon laid down Ms 
mairrsiraiegy for bis two years 
as BIM chairman: “I am 
particularly keen to increase 
young people's involvement 
with industry and promote 
better management education.. 
Management education 
should start in the school 
classroom and should be a 
lifelong process. The more 
skiffs people gain, the more 
motivated they become.” 

His preoccupation with 
improving the interface be- 
tween industry and educa- . 
tional . institutions also took 
him to board membership of 
the- Foundation for Manage- 
ment Education. 

But the fine focus of his 
dunking dwells most of all on 
• motivation. He said: “The 
fundamental problem of this 
' country is attiradinaL Go to 
the_thnisting countries — ■ Ko- 
.rea. Brazil, 5ii«ap6re^ Taiwan 
and so on —'ind lhey hatfe a 
national perception ofiwhere 
tirey are-going. ^ • . , -r- ■ i, 

“In 'Britain there is, .'no 
common . perception of this 
ldncU British talent is as good 
if not better than in any other 
of the advanced countries of 
die world, but that clarity of 

perception and purpose is not 
there." . 

like many m manufacturing 
industry, be is critical of 
Britain's . contra-commercial 
culture,- with its roots in the 
Victorian .past and .earlier. 
Too-few competent managers 
are- being turned out by the 
British 'system: and too-few 
people with the correct- range 
of skills and training^ be said.' 

He bemoans that outstand- 
ing example of the altitudinal 
gap in the United Kingdom: 
the British, approach to so 
many manifestationis of the 
tourist industry. 

Mr Wolfeon said: “Britain is 
nniqnely placed to exploit 
tourism potential yet how 
many-native born Britons do 
ypiTsee working in restaurants 
or.the hotels^ Britonsiconfose 
service with servile. But go to 
Switzerland;^ ^ there -they tadofr. a 
pride' in service. It is no 
accident that Swissair -enjoys 
the reputation ft has.” 

If Britons saw a priority in 
securing a better standard of 
living then such attitudes 
could change, he said. - 
■ He applauds British -suc- 
cesses. “We are at -teastUaft- 
goOd asanybddyin the* world

Gty office area likely to grow 

By Judith Huntley 

Commercial- - -.Properly 

The demand for good qual- 
ity offices in the Gty off 
London to meet die needs of 
the international financial 
conglomerates in the Big Bang 
era could lead to the 

redevelopment of a third of 

140 million sq ft of spa«mfte 
Square Mile, theoty of West- 
minster and their OTroimd- 
ings within the next five to 10 
vears, according to Edward 
Erdman, the surveyor. 

The firm, in a research 
report, says that 1987 win be a 
year for the pnyarty

The City's office market 
still depends significantly on - 
Big Bang- But it is by no 
means orfy the banking -and 
- broking combines which are in 
the fbrefrtutf of demand for 
over bigger and higher- qnalfty 

Edward Erdman says that 
the insurance, lawandaccoun- 
tjmey firms have taken up 32 
per cent of the office space let 
in and aroand the City. With 
newspapers moving from their 
traditional hannts in . Fleet 
Street and Hoiboro, the area is 
quickly beoouupg an alter- 

Bnt ttis by no means about to

historic parts of its area; 

. . It has yet to deride on 
whether any of the plethora of 
redevdopfnents phased for 
London Wall some of-whkh 
involve demolishing offices 
only 20 years old, can go 
ahead. •

that the faegahtioB of the

He added: “As you become 
more inventive and creative 
you are back in with a 
chance,” - . 

He is encouraged by 
improvements being seen in 
productivity from the coal pits 
to the sled works and the car 
factories. The trouble, he feds, 
is that not enough companies 
in industry are achieving the 

One problem was that large 
companies could be too com- 
placent and rigid, he said. 
Thai was why small busi- 
nesses, wfth their eye on the 
ball and quick on their feel 
could do so welt. 

Another hopeful factor was 
the way Britain was leading 
the world in computer, skills at 
school level. • 

Mr Wolfeon said: **We 
probably have more comput- 
ers in schools and in homes 
than any other nation. Given 
our basic inventiveness this 
could bode well for the next 
generation in industry and 

“ But the country does have 
to have a sense qf priorities 
and specifically to improve 
the stendard of living. It also 
means- political 


He added: “We need to be 
responsible. We cannot just 
say we want it: we have to 
work for ft and we have to sell 

The key issue was what 
people produced rather than 
what they earned because a 
priority was to secure a 25 per 
cent productivity improve- 
ment over the next few years. 

That meant training and 
redeployment, he said but 
added: “We are just near the 
birow of tbe faiiL We could 
drop back or we could reach 
out and find dearer horizons." 

What management and na- 
tional leaders had to give was 
the right purposeful quality. 
“After all a Brit if he has got

of that”

COMMENT Kenneth Fleet 

Lawson smoothes the 
way to higher rates 

; NigeJ Lawson used to be thought of as 
money! man first, politician second. 
Yesterday, he changed the order. 
Turnings Nelsonian eye to the storms 
in financial markets, he delivered a 
speech -designed to warm up autumn 
in Bournemouth. He also made a rise 
in the hank base rate in the next few 
days even more likely. 

The commitment to a 25 per cent 
basic cate of income tax remained 
firm. So too was the promise that 
ihere would be no irresponsible public 
' spending ahead of the General Elec- 
tion. This left open, no doubt in- 
tentionally, the question of how 
responsible the path of the public 
sector i borrowing requirement would 

The markets listened patiently and 
intently. It was just possible, even in a 
speech to the Party faithful, that he 
wouldslide in a telling reference to the 
European Monetary System. He did 
not; and as the Chancellor was 
receiving his standing ovation, the 
screens of foreign exchange dealers 
were blinking the pound down against 
all currencies. It fell by more then a 
pfennig against the mark, and half a 
cent against the dollar in the five 
minutes after Mr Lawson's speech. 

The surprise was that the pound 
was not weaker. The sterling index, 
after rising from 67.1 to 67.8 during 
the morning — helped by some 
Bundesbank support for the dollar — 
had reiapsed to 67.5 by the close. The 
pound dosed above its lows against 
the mark. 

Money market interest rates are 
now dSscounting the one-point rise in 
base rates that most operators think is 
inevitable next week. Rates closed 
about) an eighth higher yesterday. 
With a rise of this sort now built into 
the market, a further attack on sterling 
may t seem to the bears an 
unneocessary indulgence at this point. 

Thd behaviour of gilts, up by a point 
in the morning, and .holding on to 
three-quarter point gains at the dose, 
can be explained in the same way. 
Acconding to John Shepperd of Rowe 
& Pitman, Mullens, the market is 
already looking beyond a rise in base 
rates to the time when they can be 
brought down again, in familiar Duke 
of York fashion. The gilts market, 
however, thinks that the initial rise in 
base rates wil] have to be two per cent, 
not one. ' f 

Options on a merger 

Whak price - .a- -unified London 
Options ^Exchange? Perish- the 
thought, say those whoinsist that only 
competition can improve the breed, 
and it is certainly a healthy sign in the 
run-up for Big Bang that the London 
International Financial Futures Ex- 
change (Liffe) and the Stock Exchange 

should be fighting so keenly over this 
fast-expanding area of the finanrial 
services arena. 

But as the two markets have already 
discovered, there is room for co- 
operation. They have chosen as the 
natural starting point the coincidence 
of having the International Commod- 
ities Clearing House as their clearing 
agent. Once the ICCH succeeds in 
gearing up its computers, traders with 
seats on both exchanges will be able to 
make more economical use of depos- 
its with the clearing house. Other 
mutual benefits are also being exam- 
ined, including co-operation in 
complying with provisions of the 
Financial Services Bill. 

Both exchanges are also leami 
that they have established areas o: 
expertise with comparatively little 
overlap. Few would dispute that the 
Slock Exchange is the natural place to 
trade options in ordinary shares and 
Liffe is unlikely to try to steal this 

Equally, Liffe looks like becoming 
the home for options contracts based 
on Government securities. Interest in 
the Siock Exchange's long gilts op- 
tions is so limited that dealers have 
difficulty filling their orders there. 

Trying to select a winner in other in- 
struments is more difficult. Neither 
exchange has made a go of currency 
options, probably because those who 
want to cover their exposure to 
movements in rates of exchange 
normally do so in the huge London 
interbank foreign exchange market 
The Stock Exchange may have the 
edge over Liffe when it links with the 
highly-Iiquid Philadelphia market. 

On equity index options, it will be 
fairer to judge after Big Bang. Starting 
on October 27, members of the Stock 
Exchange can negotiate the commis- 
sions they charge as their Liffe 
brethren in the Royal Exchange 
already do. Liffe starts the next lap 
with its new contract having the 
advantage of a nearby delivery 

Any pressure for a joint options 
market is likely to come initially from 
the Stock Exchange where there are no 
sacred cows left. Liffe, for its part, has 
other priorities, including the 
development of its international links, 
as it enters its fifth year in ebullient 

The real battle, however, is London 
versus the. rest, not Liffe against the 
Stock ExehanfgeL. There, is a great - 
gaggle of American markets ready to 
take over the business if London - 
cannot properly serve the customers. 
The recent misfortunes of the London.- 
soft commodities and metals markets 
should serve as warning enough that ■ 
no City institution has a guaranteed - 
fiiture. •’

“While seddngout, direct investments, we have invested 

in quoted companies, mainly m Hong Kong and japan, 
which have significant business with China. 

“Marks conditions remain buoyant and I am confident 
that further opportunities will arise in the two principal 
external, markets - Hong Kong and Japan - to invest in 
listed China-related companies. 

The Chinese economy is now showing every sign of an 
upturn, while the pace of reform; both political and 
economic, is encouraging; Onr confidence is further 
enhanced by prospects for cuirency reform within China

The Newmont copper problem has disguised 
impressive progress on other fronts. Newmont Gold 
expects to produce in excess of 20 tons of gold 
per annum within this decade. The Company is also 
well placed to develop its direct oil and gas interests 
and, through Peabody, coal 

The development of our operations should lead to a 
substantial improvement in our financial fortunes.

pany Bell Resources, for 29.9

be taken seriously. Not seri- 
ously enough, however, to 
accept it. 

Morgan's share price has 
reached 3l7p this year, 
admittedly helped by Mr 
Holmes a Court's steady 
buying. The premium for 
such a large chunk of the 
company — 16.5 per cent 
more than he owns — looks 
somewhat mean. 

Saf ety clauses are not 
permitted in on-market ten- 
ders. This prevents Mr 
Holmes i Court from giving 
shareholders any comfort. 

When Beazer tendered for 
SGB Group, it promised the 
accepting shareholders a top- 
up if it bic “ 

bid for the company at 
7 level in the next year 
or if it sold its stake to a third 

Berkley also offered top- 
ups in certain circumstances. 

Mr Holmes a Court has 
indicated he might launch a 
full bid for Morgan after three 
months. Shareholders should 
wait and see if he does and 
what he offers. 

Although the failure of the 
tender would cause short- 
term share price weakness, 
Morgan should make taxable 
profits this year of £25 mil- 
lion. giving a prospective 
rating of 15 on shares down 
8p at 303p yesrerdayr-Tbe

The latest to benefit and to 
cash in with a trip to the 
Unlisted Securities Market is 
Whinney Mackay-Lewis, the 
architectural designer, with 
an enviable list of blue- 
blooded clients. 

Following in the footsteps 
of the architectural practice 
of D Y Davies, which came to 
the market in April, Whinney 
Mackay is placing 1.6 million

Austin Reed 

Buying your clothes at Austin 
Reed is unlikely to raise 
many eyebrows. The classic 
“no risks” image has made 
the names Austin Reed and 
Chester Barrie famous, but 
has also made it difficult for 
the business to branch out 
into the more fashion con- 
scious parts of the retail 

Instead, the group is 
developing its manufacturing 
dulls. Tins accounts for a 
third of turnover, but is equal 
to retailing m its contribution 
to profits. A fifth of its sales 
are to Austin Reed retail 
outlets, thus widening group 

There is scope to increase 
the manufacturing operation 
in Britain and Europe by 
increasing its customer base 

The group also receives 
licensing income in the 
United States and Japan from 
companies manufacturing 
Chester Barrie and Austin 
Reed products. 

The group has 37 Austin 
Reed of Regent Street outlets, 
five of which are m London. 
Virtually all include Options, 
selling tailored women's 
dothes and Cue, catering for 
younger men. . 

Retail expansion will take 
the form of obtaining con- 
cessions in department stores 
in Britain and Europe. Ide- 
ally,- they will be in places 
which, wild not otherwise 
justify a free standing outlet 
A pilot unit has been opened 
at Selfridges m London. 

The second half is more 
important as winter clothes 
cai^ higher ticket prices and 
business increases in the tun- 
up to Christmas. This year 
profits should move up to- 
wards £6 million (earnings 
per share 135p). 

The share rating reflects 
the fact that the business is 
halfway between two sectors. 
They are cheap for the stores 
sector but expensive textile 
shares. . 

The non-voting “A” shares 
yesterday rose 5p to 151 p, as 
analysts welcomed the re- 
sults. However, it is hard to 
see the shares do much more 
than hold their own.

Fiat deal 
with Japan 

By Anne -Warden 

Fiat Auto, one of Europe’s 
most successfhT car makers, 
this week frowned on ihe idea 
of car mannfocinring deals 
with Japanese producers, even 
as 12 of the parent group's 
manager *, led by Signor Um- 
berto Agnelli, the vice-chair- 
man, wooed Japanese 
financiers at a two-day 
presentation in Tokyo which 
on Tuesday. 

E^r Gregorio Rampa, a se- 
nior assistant to Signor 
Vittorio Ghidefla, the chief of 
Fiat Auto, said of the manu- 
facturing agreements: “We 
don't thmfc it is a good idea to 
encourage the Japanese to 
invest in Europe." 

Dr Rampa, director of 
industrial policy at Rat Auto, 
said that funds for future fiat 
car projects, such as the “Type 
2” to be launched in 1988. 
would come from the com- 
pany’s earnings. 

Last month Fiat announced 
pretax profits for the first half 
of $7. 17 billion (£5-04 billion). 
This doubles the figure for the 
same period last year. 

Dr Rampa said agreements 
such as the British Rover 
Group with Honda to develop 
replacements for the Maestro 
and Rover 200, were “not a 
way to defend the English 
automobile industry". 

He added that Fiat had no 
plans to introduce car produc- 
tion in Britain because such a 
move would not be profitable. 

£30m Blue Arrow cash 
call for US expansion 

John Bell 

ll took Tony Berry just Wto 
years to develop his Blue 
Arrow group from a modest 
entrant to the Unlisted Securi- 
ties Market to the largest 
employment agency in Britain 
via an agreed merger with 
Brook Street Bureau. 

Now Mr Berry has estab- 
lished a solid base in the US 
where he reckons the pros- 
pects are even better. To fund 
the expansion be is calling on 
shareholders for £30 million 
by way of a one-for-three 
rights issue. 

After 12 months* research 
and analysis of more than 100 
companies Blue Arrow an- 
nounced last month that it 
had bought Positions, a Bos- 
ton-based agency specializing 
in permanent stair 

Yesterday Mr Berry told 
shareholders that stage two of 
his American strategy bad 
been achieved and that a third 
acquisition was expected 

Yesterday's move involved 
the conditional purchase of 
the Washington-based 
Temporaries for a down pay- 
ment of Si 0.7 million and 
further profit-related instal- 
ments of up to J2I million 
(£14.7 million) over the next 
two years. 

Alt being well a third US 
company in the temporary 
helpers' field will join the 
group before the end of the 

ten ranking in rite US 

“These deals establish us in 
three key areas of the employ- * 
ment agency business in the 
US and we hope at some time 
to complete our coverage of 
the market by adding a com- 
pany in executive search and 
head-hunting," said Mr Berry 

“We identified the US as a 
market which we have to be 
in. The working population is 
90 million compared with our 
20 million and salaries are 
often twice the levels over 
here. In cash terms the market 
is probably' 10 times bigger 
than our own. 

“When we complete our 
deals, we will be among the 
top ten in the US but with 
enormous scope for expand- 
ing further," he added. 

The man who paved the 
way for Blue Arrow's trans- 
atlantic moves is Mr Eric 
Hurst, who with his wile 
Margery built up the Brook 
Street chain. 

Blue Arrow's progress has 
been electrifying since it was 
brought to the USM by Phil- 
lips & Drew, ibe stockbrokers, 
in 1984. 

Then capitalized at just 
over £3 million Blue Arrow 
forecast profits of £350,000. 
Now capitalized at £100 mil- 
lion, Blue Arrow yesterday 
promised shareholders that in 
the year to the end of ibis 
month profits would be not 
less than £&2 million. 

Analysis are expecting £14 
million next year as the full 
benefits qf the earlier ac- 
quisition come through. Their 
forecasts 'exclude the US 

Mr Berry is, however, at 
pains to stress that his 
management team has rapidly 
improved the returns from the 
companies which have been 

Blue Arrow has restructured 
its senior management with 
the creation of a four-man 
main board responsible for 
corporate policy and two 
subsidiary boards taking care 
of the UK and US operations 

The forecast profit of £8 2 
million for the current year 
represents a near quadrupling 
of the previous year's pretax 
income. The board promises 
shareholders a final dividend 
of !.4p net. making a total for 
the year oflOp which is67 per 
cent higher than in I9S3. 

The one-for-three rights is- 
sue has been pitched at a price 
of 330p. Blue Arrow shares fell 
7p to 371p on the news.

Over the next few days, nearly five million 
people will receive bad tidings from the TSB. 

Some will be sent only a fraction of the shares'

with a lot of spare cash looking for a home. 

At Lloyds Bank we would like to offer a 
suggestion. Put your money into our High 
Interest Cheque Account. 

-As the name suggests it pays a very healthy 
rate of interest. Currently 720%* net p.a. on

compound for a year that’s equivalent to 7.40%.) 

More importantly, though, your money is 
instantly available. 

You can simply withdraw cash from one of 
our Cashpoint machines or use the cheque book 
that we provide. 

If you’re looking to sink a little of your 
savings into the British Gas flotation this will 
be particularly usefuL 

Especially since your money won’t stop 
earning interest until your cheque is cashed. 
(If it’s returned, you’ll lose nothing at all.)

make use of Lloyds Bank Sharedeal.

charge. And you won’t be restricted to the usual 
minimum deposit of £2500 when you open the 

If you would like more information, call in

Tighter rules for franchisors

By-Derek Harris 

The British Franchise ‘ Association 
(BFAJ; trade body for Me of the fesiesf- 
griwing sectors-in British business, is 
likely to tighten' tis rules sooaia the wake 
of recent fiMdiistngfeilures. 

Under consideration is an a nn u al 
audit for all BFA members to include 
most of Britain’s 440 franchisors, the 
operators with a business format whose 
use is licensed to franchisees. It would 
check on changes in a franchised 
business, such as the the number ot 
franchisees. opting out, and, could act as 
an early warning of potential problems.

Institute- of Arbitrators KF devise a 
scheme for sealing disputes that would

The moves come as the three-day 
National Franchise Exhibition, which 
opens at London’s Kensington Ex- 
hibition Centre today, is expected u> 
draw its biggest number yet of hopefuls 
seeking a way to launch their own 
business. There are more than 120 
exhibitors, an increase of nearly a 
quarter ou last year. 

The. latest, survey . for t&e BFA has. 
shown how franchising is growing: sales 
up 26 per cent in 12 months with the 

number of franchised outlets, nearing 
20.000, a rise of 56 percent in a year. But 
the franchisor failure rate is up from 12 
to 14 per cent. So a wanting about 
franchise euphoria has come from Tony 
Outfield, director of the BF& who 
believes some plunge their savings into a 

franchising deal, thinking that profits 
will emerge almost by magic instead of 
through hard work. He advises a hard 
look at any franchise offering, with 
careful checks on alL assumptions from 
customer flow to that of. cash. Adi 
existing franchisees whai they think.

Dividends . 

In the absenc e of unforeseen rirarmstances, the D ire ct or* intend do 
recommend a final dividend in respect of the year-ending 30th April, 1987, of 
. ZOpnet per Ordinary share (equivalent to 2jsp per Ordinary share including 
-the related rax credit at the current rare) for payment in October, 1987^ 

If the Ordinary shares had been fisted on The Stock Exchange forthe wboie 
of the year ending 30th April, 1987 the Direaan would, in the absence of 
unforeseen circumstances, have expe ct ed to recommend dividends in 
respect of the year totalling 4.0p net per Ordinary share (equivalent to 5.6p 
per Ordinary mare including the related tax credit at the current rate). Sucn 
notional prospective dividends would have cost approxi mately £400,000 
(net of the related Advance Corporation Tax), and would have provided a 
gross dividend yield, at the m a um um tender price; of 37 per cent, which 
would have been covered 17 times by the forecast earnings of 10l7p pet 
Ordinary share. 


The Directors believe that the Company has reached a sane in its 
development where it is appropriate to seek a listing of its dares. This status 
will e nh a nce the corporate profile of the firm amongst its existing and 
potential dients. The fisting, together with the net proceeds of the issue and 
other available resources, wiD provide the Group with greater BexAnfity in 
financing future growth both by internal development and by acquisition as 
and when suitable opportunities arise. The Directors have no present 
intention of making any specific acquisition. 

Of the 2^00,000 Ordinary shares which are being offered for sale, 1,005,243 
are being sold by the Directors in the proportions set om in paragraph 5 of 
"Statutory and General Information”. The balance of 1,494,75/ are new 
shares and will raise a minimum of £178 milUnw, net of expenses, Cor the 
Company. These funds together with existing resources wffl considerably 
strengthen the capital base of the Group and, in the short term, will be 
placed an deposit. Fallowing the Offer for Sale the Directors and tbeir 
familics will holdapp ro Bt nn at dy 75 per cent of the enlarged fasued Ordinary

paying a dividend, the Company is required to account to the Inland 
Revenue for Advance Corporation Tax ("ACT') at a rate which is currently

that the rev limiter cutting in 

• is your first real indicator that- 
you are up to 6,000 rpm and 

; going into the red sector. 

I Electrical faults are still 
among the most frequent 
j causes of breakdown, a prob- 
; lem which . has -been accen- 
; luated by the - -increasing - 
number of electrically- 
powered appliances: Fuime- 

■ cars will almost certainly 
) adopt the multiplex . wiring 
! System with a single “rfog 

: main” round the body cany- 1 
, ing coded signals to different 
, electrical devices. To date, 

; however, no one seems to 

■ have come up with a practical 
multiplex system which does 
not suffer from outside radio 

i In the meantime Jaguar has 
produced its oiwiT halfway “ 

•mu you have a man ual System 
lab elled “D” “3" and J T'- It 
is extremely easy to. operate 
and wfl] be a boon to the more 
sporting driver or when 
descending steep hills. In the 
German ZF gearbox “J" 
equates to a normal top gear 
while “D" is a long legged 
overdrive fourth. 

Manual gearboxes have 
been shunned by Jaguar driv- 
. era for many years. Anyone 
who has ever driven a manu*T 
-XJ6 -wffl know^-whyf The 
changes were physically 
.demanding and dreadfully 
noichy as befitted their elderly 
BMC ancestry. .Most luxury, 
car buyers opt for automatics 

That has changed with the 
arrival of the new XJ6. It is 
much more sporty in its power 
delivery and handles Hke a car 
half its weight . Together with . 
a driving position which is 
noticeably less' armchair-tike 
it will appeal to those younger 
drivers .who tended tb jeganl : 
the old Xl6 as' rather sftuo. 

. T<L use,, tins.- n ew. found 
freedom. . . Jaguar- has : in- 
troduced a second Gennan 
gearbox, this time a -five- 
speed, manual Getrag as stan- 
dard equipment on the XJ6 
2.9 and 3.6 models and a no- 
cost option on the more 
expensive Sovereign and 
Daimler versions.

But one o£the cornerstones of 
This refined 'ride ws weight. 
Nothing damps out un- 
warranted bumps like weight 
and to meet performance and 
fuel consumption targets its 
replacement had to be appre- 
.ciabfy lighter. The alloy engine 
saved 120 lbs bat despite the 
use of thinner glass, lighter 
gearboxes and wiring harness 
the total saving was only 200 
lbs. I gather tins . was the 
.absolute ma ximum t he enr- 
gibeers were prepared to sac- 
rifice without reducing the 
ride qualfty. . ■■ - 
Jaguar insists it is not 
spreading down-market from 
true luxury cars into the much 
bi g ger and cheaper executive- 
car sector. But by pricing lire 
cheapest model — the Jaguar 
XJ6 2.9 tine — at a very 
competitive £16.495 it is now

have Bosch' anti-lock brakes as i

they cost an extra £1,050 on

Honda Legend 

An obvious competitor for 
titftfibeapea Jaguar will be ihe„ 
new British-assembled Honda 


They share Honda's contro- 
versial, new, alloy 25 litre 24 
valve, 90- degree V6 ermine 
driving the front wheels from 
a transverse layout 

The road-going engine is 
one of the most powerful in its 
class but suffers m an execu- 
tive role from a narrow power 
band. Most can in this sectors 
are automatic. The ideal com- 
: pattion. for an automatic is a 
..Jbifi^Ozquey'' engine like the 
-. 3,5 litre VS in the old Rover 
SDI modeLJt makes for very 
■ relaxed driving. The Honda 
engine however spends too 
much time hunting between 
- third and top gear as it tries to 
stay on the narrow power 

Honda acknowledged this 
by. labelling the selector lever 
riXT and “B4”. The implica- 
tion « dearly that “D3” 
should be used as a normal top 
Tear with “D4" reserved as an 
:oy*srdrive for high-speed 
cniisiQg. ; 

Reports from America 
where Japanese-made Leg- 
ends have been on sale for 
several months suggest that 
Honda is preparing a slightly 
bigger 2.7 litre version which 
will have a much flatlerpower 
curve: In the meantime I 
suggest Austin Rover would 
be wefl advised to modify 
-their- -sele cto r -to — indicate 
“Drive" and “Overdrive".

Botham's decision not to tour 
South Africa was prompted. Dr 
Bacher believes, by financial, not 
moral, misgivings. The South African 
authorities understand and accept 
this. What they resent is his moral 
standpoint, which, they consider, is 
.wearing extremely thin, particularly 
among the negotiators with whom be

pleasingto see. 

“Every week we get requests from 
English players to come and play and 

pressed with Marshall” Dr Bacher - 
says. “He was undecided but a 
listener. At Christinas that year in 
Melbourne, where he and Haynes 
were- playing grade -cricket, they 
finally accepted an offer, but within 
36 hours of the Melbourne Age 
breaking the story, it was all over. 


both players being whisked back 

“The following August large sums 
of money were offered tu Marshall 
again and to Larry Gomes to play 
during the second phase of the next 
West Indian tour to South Africa and 
to coach in subsequent sears. The 
offer included a five-year contract for 
Marshall and a shorter one for 
Gomes. The bulk of the money was 
underwritten by one of South Africa's 
biggest multinational corporations 
and was conditional upon Marshall 
doing extensise coaching among the 
black children and Gomes among the 
young Coloureds." 

Dr Bacher adds: “Marshall was not 
. interested by this time and. although 
Gomes was, he withdrew at the last 
moment. At about the same time I 
met Gordon Greenidgc and tried to 
explain to him what changes he could 
bring about in our political system 
simply by coming to South Amca to 
play. But he, too, was not interested. 

Richards’s stance was 
on.moral grounds 

■ ‘ “r respected, thav just as I had’ 
respected Richards's reaction when 
wc had a 90-minuie talk at Taunton 
in August 1983.. I. told Richanfs then 
that his presence in South Africa as a 
black superstar would be an enor- 
mous help in catalysing political and 
sporting changes and that by coming 
he could assist in the eradication of 
apartheid. But we never talked about - 

' I respected his reasons for refusing 
16 come because -of- h«V -moral - 
reservations: be came across as a 
genuine-person. The- South African 
Cricket Union spoke to neither Clive 
Lloyd nor Joel Garner, thinking they 
would not be interested and needing 

secrecy to protect the -acceptors." 

Dr Bacher attached particular im- 
portance 10 the need for secrecy after 
Bob Willis and Geoff Cook had 
committed themselves ' to play in 
South Africa in February 1982, only 
to withdraw at the last moment — 
before a. leak to Lord's had materi- 
alized from somewhere. -• 

Dr Bacher wants thesc-facls known 
so that South Africa's position can be 
more fully understood. He has no 
wish to -denigrate anyone, only to 
show people in authority The full and ~ 
factual extent of his board's dealings 
with top players. He is trying to help 
the ICC to find a way of helping 
South Africa. 

“Wc aim to make our domestic 
scene the best in the world”, he says. 
"We can do it on our own but wc still 
consider ourselves as an integral pan 
of world cricket." . . 

What could come out of SACU’s 
meeting is an open-handed offer to _

Revised tactics 
can lead 
smart Mytens 
to double 

By Mandarin (Michael Phillips) 

Following that fine auihori- race here a fortnight ago as it 


Sainte Joie stamps |l> 

SX&kf • 

tative victory at Newmarket 
last Friday. Myteos is napped 
to give his owner KJiaJed 
Abdulla and jockey Pat 
Eddery another taste of suc- 
cess. in what has already been 
an unforgettable year, at Ascot 
today by winning the Mecca 
Bookmakers Handicap. 

.After winning his first two 
races of the season over 
today's distance, at San down 
and Lmgfield. Mytens was 
then disappointing in bis next 
two at York and Doncaster. 

Bui it now transpires there 
was a reason. He was ridden 
for speed on both the 
Knavesmire and Town Moor 
but when that ploy was dearly 
a failure a change of tactics 
was deeded upon at New- 
market where he was ridden 
up with the pace all the way. 
And wbat a difference it made. 

Taking up the running lully 
two furlongs from home. 
Mytens had only to be ridden 
out with hands and heels to 
beat .Asian Cup very comfort- 
ably indeed by two and a half 
lengths. That was the perfor- 
mance of both a different and 
an improved horse. 

Mytens, ridden again that 
way. should prove hard to 
catch in .Ascot's relativdy 
short straight. I nap him to 
make light of his penalty even 
though Sultan Mohamed, 
Mailman. Captain's Niece and 
Follow The Band constitutes 
tough opposition. 

Indeed, by taking a strict 
form line through Embarr, it is 
perfectly possible to argue that 
Sultan Mohamed has the beat- 
ing of Mytens. Bui I repeat 
that was when ray selection 
was ridden for speed at Don- 

Mailman, runner-up to the 
subsequent Cambridgeshire 
second. Power Bender, at 
Newbury last lime, will also be 
a tough nut to crack but not as 
dangerous i suggest as 
Captain's Niece who. unlike 
my selection, has not been 
penalised for winning her last 

was restricted to apprentices. 

At the stan of the programme 
the champion jockey-elect will 
be on an old ally. Insular, on 
whom he won a similar race at 
Newmarket back in May. This 
lime, though, the Queen's 
versatile ax-year-old may not 
beat Guy Harwood’s improv- 
ing young stayer Cap Del 
Mood who saw the two miles 
out to the bitter end at 
Newmarket nine days ago. 
This autumn Harwood's stay- 
ers have been sweeping all 
before them. 

Twelve months ago the 
Newmarket trainer Harry 
Thomson Jones and jockey 
Tony Murray joined forces to 
win the Duke of Edinburgh 
Stakes for Sheik Ham dan AI- 
Makioum with Soughan. 

Now they are after the same 
prize with AJwasmi for the 
same owner who spent what 
must have been a fortune 
buying the colt's dam, Height 
Of Fashion, from the Queen in 
a private transaction in the 
summer of 1982. By then 
Height of Fashion had won 
the Princess of Wales's Slakes 
at Newmarket in record time 
as well as the May Hill Stakes 
and the Hoover Mile the 
season before. 

By the legendary stallion 
Northern Dancer, Alwasmi is 
her first foal. Well that Fm led 
to believe he will run by 
George Robinson, our New- 
market correspondent, the 
Michael Stoute-traioed 
Canango is just preferred. 

Paul Kelleway is not the 
easiest of trainers to catch 
right but today I do think that 
he has found the ideal 
opportunity for Moonlight 
Lady (3.5). My selection for 
the Grand Metropolitan 
Stakes was only just touched 
off by Hadeer at Doncaster 
last month. On that occasion 
she had such smart performers 
as Gwydion, Sarah, Digger’s 
Rest and Oiveden behind. 

Flying high: Australian jockey Dong Messingham is catapulted out of the saddle after his 
mount, Koala Black, reared altering die stalls during a recent meeting at the Doomben 
racecourse, Brisbane. Remarkably, the jockey escaped injury and was reunited with the 20-1 
chance, who completed the race in last place 

Reluctant Melendez makes it four 

Peter Scudamore and Martin Pipe, the 
Wellington trainer, setting a strong pace this 
National Hum season, took their scores to 22 and 
17. respectively, when Melendez landed the odds 
in the Novices Hurdle at Cheltenham yesterday, 
bis fourth win in four starts this term. 

Melendez was very reluctant to go down to the 
start and Pipe had to go out onto the course, and 
lead him all the way. The trainer then stayed at 
the start to make sure the favourite jumped off. 

but from that point Melendez did nothing wrong, 
tracking the pacemaker Ribovino before goingon 
at the top of the till] and coming home live 
lengths dear of Brent Riverside. 

Pipe said: “He's got hisquirks and doesn't train 
himself very hard. I wanted to give him a little 
sprint yesterday for a pipe-opener, but he didn't 
want to play then, so I look him to the swimming 
pool and he did eight laps."

From Onr French 
Correspondent Fans 

While Triptych, third in the 
Arc, makes a speedy reappear- 
ance hi the Dsbai Champion 
Stakes at Newmarket on Sat- 
urday week. Grfquette Head 
confirmed at Evry yesterday that 
Bering returned fro m Sun days 
big event with a fractured left 

shut bone. 

it w01 probably never be 
known where the noddent oc- 
curred in the race but it is 
mined; to have been very far 
from tbe winning past as Bering 
to be running n most 
determinedly after he had been 
passed by Dancing Brave. 

The last time a rimflar in- 
cident took place in a major race 
was in 1980 when Henbft 
cracked his off-fore cannon bone 
inside the final fuileag at Ep- 
som, moments before winning 
the Derby. 

Bering's injury was not appar- 
ent directly after the race and it 
was not —til the following 
morning that stable staff became 
concerned and the revealing X- 
ray was arranged. . 

The son of Arctic Tern w ou l d 
not have raced again in any case 
bat he now retires to Walmnc 
International Stnd Farm in 

Bering's jockey, Gary Moore, 
also rode in the big race with a 
hairline fracture of the shoulder. 

Patrick-Loufa Bfawcoae has 
some ambitious end of season 
plans for his top fillies. 
Fabnrola, who runs oo Sunday 
In tbe Jefferson Smnrfit Irish St 
Leger, may then take her chance 
in the Rothman's International 
at Woodbine, Ontario where she 
is likely to be joined by Mersey

ing eighth in tbe Arc on. going 
that wasr too bst for her. 

The nltra-consistentTriptych, 
who ran a fine race to be third in

much of a breather by Bfancone. 
After her Newmarket challenge 
stae will then nm in at least one 
of the Breeders Cop Turf races 
at Santa Anita on November 1 
and tbe Washington D C Inter- 
national a fortnight later. 

Another challenger for the 
Champion Stakes will be the

Topaze, wbo had to miss the Arc 
because of nmscalar trouble.

Yesterday, earning — . 

Juoie from Hills for next years 

°T0ny Ives brought Sainte Joie 
to join Summer Posy, who tod 
l«f from the start, going mto the 

final furlong. It took 
favourite some tune to «*ar 
down her Kmgsdere nvaL but 
in the end she sowed by a 
comfortable half a length. 

Pat Eddery’s mount. Street 
Party, a well-beaten third. 

Lester Piggott was repre- 
sented by his wife. Susan, who 
pointed out that thiee of then- 
winners were in Ostend. Sarnre 
Joie is obviously rated highly 
among the stables juveniles and 
is entered for all next years 
classics. .. . 

■*Sie will get a mile and a 
□uarter, and hopefully a ouk 
and a half next year" said Tun 
Bulwer-Long, who manages the 
French-bred fifly for Kais Al- 
SaidL _ . 

The Cheshire bookmaker Enc 
Barber enlisted the services of 
Pat Eddery for the first tune m 

herself a 3>I 

Jl years and the jockey of tbe 
moment managed to coax Slate 
Jester to a 5-1 victory in the 
Ainsty Selling Handicap. 

“Pat has only had three rides 
for me over the yeas, and two of 

those have been winners. It was 
at Chester that he last rode for 
me 1 1 years ago." said Barber, a 
member of the Bookmakers' 
Lew Board Committee. 

The favourite. Loud Landing, 
set off in front, but was beaded 
four furlongs out by Scmtifipioc, 
Willie Canon rallied Loud 
Landing to regain the lead gcum 

into the final feriong, but 
Eddery was string poised on 
State Jester, who mastered Loud 
Landing near the finish to win 

by three-quarters of a length. . 

"He's a funny hone," com- 
mented Eddery to his trainer. 
Bill Eteey. on dismounting from 
State Jester. The Maltoa trainer 
replied: “He certainly is. He k 
not very willing, otherwise he 
would have won on a lot more 

The bay will go jumping this 
winter, and his dam, MbftfbL 
was Barber's last winner before 
yesterday's victory when foe 
scored at Haydock Park three 
years ago. 


Thomson maintains the 1 
momentum with double 

The New Zealander Brent 
Thomson, who makes a final 
decision next week over his 
long-term future riding in Brit- 
ain. partnered his first winner 
for the Newmarket trainer Oliv- 
ier Douieb at LingfiekJ Park 

Thomson is on a crest of a 
wave at the moment, and 
Thunderttome. 3-1 fevounte in 
the GRE Casually Handicap, 
was his 14th winner in the fast 
two weeks. 

Having lost his job with the 
Lam bourn trainer Barry Hills, 
Thomson was considering a 
return to Australia, where he has 
ridden more than 1.000 

However, he said: "It is now 
very likely I will return here next 
year. There are one or two 
people 1 still have to have 
discussions with, but I should be 
in a position to make an 
announcement at Newmarket 
next week." 

Little has gone right for 
Douieb this year. Thunderdome 
was only his 12th winner from a 
team of 56. 

Thomson took his score to 60, 
just four short oftats total for last 

year, when completing a double 
on War Brave, who fed insxfe 
the final furlong of the Broken 
Slakes and battled on gamely to 
hold the newcomer Dunenny by 
threequarters of a length. 

War Brave is trained by Jobri 
Dunlop, who is casting his net 
&r and wide this weekend indie 
pursuit of winners. Apart fora 
runner at Ascot and Yorfc.oa 
Saturday, he runs horses ip 
Germany. Italy and frefand oa 
Sunday. 1

Jimmy Etherington. the 
Matron trainer, has htt first-ever 
National Hunt runner today 
when Radwhaw goes to post for 
the second division of the 
novice hurdle at Hexham. 1 - 

Etherington. a former top 
northern Flat jockey, has field i 
training licence since 197(L tag 
admits that he has never beep 
interested in National . Hunt 
racing. "It was Tim, my son and 
assistant trainer, who persuaded 
me to let Radwhaw have actack 
at hurdling." he said.

children, announced in ‘April,- Is 
likeh to start a year late 
'following disagreements be- 
tween Dick Tracey, Minister for 
Sport, and the Sports Council 
over the funding of the scheme. 

While it is generally agreed 
that the project — Training of 
Young Athletes or TOYA— is of 
major importance for many 
A sports. Mr Tracey' decided in 
May tn wit hold his.approraJ_fbr 
the £800.0(10 scheme be&nse he 
felt a considerable-part of rim : 
finance should come from pri- 
vate sources. 

He was also unhappy hecanse 
publicity was given to tie project 
before financial approval bad 
been made by the Department of 
the Environment 
Now he has “ reluctantly'" 
agreed that the scheme can go 
ahead, providing that 15 percent 
of the cost.— amounting to some 
£125.000- would he found from 
sources other than .the- Spoyts 
Council. , 

• This is now bang discussed by 
the Sports Council and ' the 
governing bodies of the four 
•.ports most likely to be involved 
in the six-year research pro- 
gramme: gymnastics, s wimming, 
soccer and tennis. 

Those sports had agreed to 
make some contribution lo Toya, 
but it was a nominal contribution 
onlv - with the Lawn Tennis 
Association offering £5.000 and 
the Gymnastics Association 

“Negotiations are taking 
place to resolve the .situation, 
and we are hopeful that we will 
be able to establish a- starting 
date over the next conple Of 
months," a Sports Cbandl 

>pnkesmaii said . 

One solution would be for the 
governing bodies to make an 
increased contribution, but to 
phase it over the set years of the 
project. If this does not prove 
possible, a further appeal to the 
Minister to let the project go 
ahead wifi be made.

Wiilesden to- 
day England have a little lime to 
plan their strategy for the two 
remaining group A matches, the 
results of which, will decide 
whether or not they qualify for

little uneasiness has crept in 
after Wednesday's 1-0 defeat by 
the Soviet Union. 

England showed little mid-

with six points from three 
matches, a state of prosperity 
which England might have en- 
joyed had they beaten the 
Russians. They never looked 
like doing so. 

This is not to say that they 
cannot beat the Dutch, as weU as 
they may be playing at the 
moment, with Tom van'l Hek

unexpected places.

New- Zealand, with three de-

One more point should see The

Meads reveals he 

took money on 
S African tour 

■ Colin ■ Meads, one of the 
great figures of world rugby, 
test night threw the sport into 
turmoil by acknowledging that 
money was. paid to Sis New 
Zealand Cavaliers team in 
South: Africa this year. “We 
dcoeptdd very generous dona- 
dons while we were there,*' be 

■ Meads's detailed statement 
to The Times confirms that 
the tour breached almost ev- 
ery rule in the International ’ 
Rugby Board’s code of 

• The New Zealander, re- 
tained as a national selector 
despite managing the rebel 
tour, has spoken out in an 
effort to challenge the Inter- 
national Rugby Board, now 
meeting in London to discuss 
the implications of the. tour 
and to design new rules on 
amateurism. Meads, aged SO 
and a- veteran of 55 inter- 
‘ nationals, urged world rugby 

leaders to “regain control" of 
the sport by paying players 
openly and within an agreed 

; Speaking in a tape-recorded 
interview from his New Zea- 
land farm. Meads confirmed 
the main findings of an in- 
vestigation carried out by The - 
Times since the tour, began. 

H e said: 

I — Pre-tour negotiations 

- principally between Andy 
Haden. the New Zealand 
forward, and the chief 
South African tour 
organiser, Robert Denton, 
had led to “a generous 

-donation" being placed in a 
“team fund'. He would not 
-reveal the total amount as 
, that would “breach. 

confidentiality". . • 
/^A-’tour fund distinct 

- from the one arranged 
beforehand was set up in 

■ South Africa. Secret dona- 
tions were channelled into 
the fund, which was also 

• kept separate from the of 
fiaall y-acknowledged small 
daily allowance payable on 
official international tours. 

3 — A wide range of fund- 
raising activities was under- 
taken and proceeds from 
them, together with “a lot of 

By Paul Martin 

donations", went to build 
up the fund, and were 
distributed equally to the 
players at the end of the 
tour. This fund came to six 
figures in rand terms: (the 
current exchange rate is 
3.17 rand to £1). Meads 
would not be more specific. 

4 — The tourists had a Fi- 
nance Committee to ar- 
range these affairs. 

5 — No individual con- 
tracts were signed, and this, 
in Meads's view, means 
they were not truly 


6 — Wives and girl friends 
had their own separate all- 
expenses-paid tour, some- 
thing the South Africans 
have never denied. 

The Times has learned in- 
dependently that the Haden- 
Denton negotiations also 
involved a senior repre- 
sentative of Yellow Pages, the 
South African company that 
holds the lucrative telephone 
book account monopoly from 
the state-controlled tele- 

Hypocrisy of 
rugby leaders 

communications department 
It was Yellow Pages who - 
besides sponsoring the tour — 
made a major contribution to 
the players' tour funds , The 
Times was told by a senior 
tour official A subsidiary of 
Volkskas Bank, which owns 
the Ellis Park stadium in 
Johannesburg, was in- 
strumental in arranging the 
transfers of monies for the 
players.. . 

Meads maintained that 
while “the difference was the 
scale of it" on the Cavaliers 
tour, every touring side he had 
been on had breached the 
amateur rules, at the very least 
by selling off international 

He accused world rugby 
leaders of hypocrisy, claiming 
all of them knew about such 
violations as they had been 
involved in them when they 
played or managed. This was 
one reason they were unlikely 

to pursue a witch-hunt against 
the Cavaliers. 

“If anyone should be pun- 
ished. the French are. more 
guilty of professionalism than 
anyone," he added. 

He said matters were now 
so blatant that the Australian 
players on the recent. -New 
Zealand tour were openly 
selling T-shuts in the grand 

He appealed to the world's 
rugby leaders to create a 
structure to allow proper 
remuneration for inter- 
national players. “It's got to 
come out in the open. I am 
speaking out as somebody has 
got to tell the International 
Rugby cannot bury 
its bead in the sand." he said. 

Meads acknowledged be 
had witbeld the truth in 
numerous public comments 
until now. “The one thing that 
hurts us most is that we could, 
not be honest,” be said. 

Meads proposed that play- 
ers be paid at a rate well above 
the average salary in their 
home country while on tonus, 
and a similar fee while 
preparaing for matches at 
home, an idea-lhat is not far 
removed from the French and 
Australian ideas hping dis- 
cussed irr London today; 

The necessity of a new 
formula is underlined by de- 
tails obtained by The Times of 
South African rebel tour 
plans. A tour itinerary for a 
visit to South Africa by the 
Aust ralians has already been 
drawn up. It begins next July, 
with three unofficial inter- 
nationals — and will gO ahftar! 
on a rebel basis unless the 
Australian : Rugby -Union 
agrees to make it official. 

Most worrying for British 
Isles rugby admimstrators was 
the willingness of most of the 
top players approached here 
and in France to undertake a 
paid rebel tour of South Africa
