Back to the

It’s a renaissance 
in more ways than 
one: London is

the strategic arms talks and 
nuclear testing issues, was 
apparently unwilling to yield 
to Soviet pressure for US 
concessions. Mr Gorbachov 
was also understood to be 
bargaining toughly. 

The two began their final 
day of negotiations at 10am 
after receiving early morning 
reports from groups of experts 
who bad been negotiating 
throughout the night on arms 
[.control, human rights, bi- 
lateral relations and regional 
conflicts. The decision to set 
up these groups was the first 
concrete indication that what

Before any new offers ma^ 
during the intense negotia- 
tions at the Reykjavik sum- 
mit, the US side was calling 
for an overall limit of 7,500 on 
long-range nuclear missiles, 
while the Soviet side proposed 
a limit of 8.000. 

. After public . statements 
from the Soviet side that 
substantia] progress had been 
made, the White House con- 
firmed that “some progress*' 
had been made by yesterday 
morning, but gave an indica- 
tion that a gap still had to 
bridged before any kind of 
agreement could be reached. 

It appears that public 
expectations and the mo- 
mentum of the talkc 
pushed both leaders into striv- 
ing for agreements in Iceland, 
rather than “impulses** for 
further talks. Mr Reagan has 
clearly been forced into nego- 
tiating actual specifics and has 
kept Mr George Shultz, the 
Secretary of State; with him 
for most of the talks. During 
the lunch interval yesterday 
Mr Shultz had a separate 
unscheduled session with Mr 
Eduard Shevardnadze, his 
Soviet opposite number.

San Salvador (AP) - Tired 
rescue workers toiled under a 
broiling tropical sun for a 
second full day yesterday, 
hoping to find more survivors 
from the devastating earth- 
quake that ravaged the capita] 
of H Salvador on Friday. 

The International Red 
Cross said that about 350 
people died and 6,800 were 
injured. _ Thirty people were 
Still believed to be buried 
alive. The organization also 
said that the homes of more 
than 40,000 families had been 
damaged, affecting some 
200.000 people, and about 600 
victims were being treated in 
hospital. 

President Jose Napoleon 
Duarte of El Salvador said on 
Saturday night that 300 people 
were known to have died and 
6,500 were injured, but many 
more victims were still be- 
lieved to be buried under the 
wreckage of several buildings. 

Relief supplies started yes- 
terday to pour in from all 
round the world. 

Meanwhile, rescuers pulled 
at least 24 survivors from two 
shattered buildings on Sat- 
urday and worked through the 
night under the glare of lights 
in hopes of finding others 
believed to be still alive, even 


to 


i and Mr 


According to Mr Arbatov, 


the new offer involved dap 
cuts in strategic nuclear mis- 
siles. 

It was also understood to 
have involved new proposals 
in the medium-range missile 
field and to have been brought 
to Reykavik by Mr Gorba- 
chov in an effort to secure 
progress at the Geneva negoti- 
ations. 

_ Mr Reagan is planning to 
give a national television 
broadcast tonight explaining 
what had been discussed and 
achieved at Reykjavik. He 
decided not to make an im- 
mediate report to Congress, 
which was not in session as 



as aftershocks continued 
rock the city. 

Two children and a woman 
were pulled alive late on 
Saturday night from the rub- 
ble of the Ruben Dario office 
building, a five-storey tiiy- 
cemre landmark that col- 
lapsed in the first, strong 
shock. 

Dr Antonio Silva Carranza, 
a member of a volunteer 
Guatemalan rescue squad, 
said the three were found 
buried under nibble on what 
had been the third floor of the 
building, one of at least seven 
large buildings toppled by the 
earthquake. 

Troops and police patrolled 
to stop looting aod dear the 
way for rescue workers. 

President Duarte, who has 
declared a national emer- 
gency, said: “We do not know 
how many more are in the 
ruins of buildings and houses 
in the affected zone.” 

Left-wing rebels fighting a 
seven-year war against the 
American -supported Govern- 
ment. declared on indefinite 
ceasefire because of the 
earthquake. 

The presidential palace. US 
Embassy, six main hospitals 
and several schools were se- 
verely damaged.

Instead of finishing as ex- 
pected at noon, Mr Reagan 
and Mr Gorbachov continued 
until 1 30pm and agreed to 
meet at 3pm for further 
discussions.

holding out for an American 
commitment to join Moscow 
in a suspension of nuclear 
tests, and to yield on President

further and further behind as 
the talks dragged on. 


Mr Georgi Arbatov, one of

ers on So vi ex-American rela- 
tions. angered the US side 
when he leaked details of what 
he claimed was a “historic” 
new negotiating proposal for 
nuclear weapons cuts put for- 
ward by the Kremlin. 


Mr Shultz and m Mts 
Roxanne Ridgway, Assistant 
Secretary of Slate for Euro- 
pean Affairs, were flying to 
Brussels soon after the’talks to 
brief the NATO allies. Gen- 
eral Edward Rowny and Mr 
Kenneth Adelman, director of 
the Arms Control and Disar- 
mament Agency were going to 
Asia to brief Japan and Amer- 
ica's other Pacific partners. 

Mr Reagan, who has had 
gruelling intensive talks, 
promised before he began he 
would not “give away the 
store” at Reykjavik. The 
Americans have indicated in 
advance they had very little 
room for manoeuvre and 
there were few fields 
they were winning 
concessions. 

However, it appears tha t 
most progress has been made 
in the three issues grouped 


ri 


bilateral 'andft 
hts questions. However, the 
has poured cold water on 
reports that some Soviet 
troops are being pulled out of 
Afghanistan, suggesting that 
this is little more t han a public 
relations exercise and does not 
represent a commitment to a 
specific timetable for full 
withdrawal.

Queen brings new warmth to Peking 


By Richard >E vans 
Political Correspondent 
Sunday horse racing and 
betting in Britain look set to be 
legalized by the end of the 
decade after a significant shift 
in Government thinking. 

Ministers, including Mr 
Douglas Hurd, the Home 
Secretary, are for the first time 
saying they see no reason why 
racegoers should be barred 
from enjpyihg the home 
equivalent of last Sunday’s 
Prix ; deTArc de Triompbe in 
Puis which the British horse 
Dancing Brave won. 

While a .commitment to 
Sunday raring is unlikely to 
appear in the Conservative 
manifesto, senior Cabinet 
ministers are now talking of 
backing a private member’s 
BiH 

The move towards regular 
Sunday racing is likely to 
anger church leaders and the 
“keep Sunday special” lobby 
which helped to defeat at- 
tempts to change Sunday 
shopping laws. 

But with Ireland, given its 
strong religious traditions, 
having successfully in- 
troduced Sunday raring last 
year, they are likely to face an 
uphill task in thwarting such a 
popular move. 

In theory, there is nothing 
to stop raring taking place on

RUC ‘hit 
squad 9 
denied 


By Our Political 
Correspondent 
The Government was under 


growing pressure last night to 
claims 


make a statement after 
that an undercover RUC 
“death squad” shot and killed 
six unarmed people in Ulster 
four years ago. 

Mr Peter Archer, the 
shadow Northern Ireland Sec- 
retary, said yesterday that he 
would be demanding an- “im- 
mediate public statement” in 
the light of the “disturbing and 
extraordinary” claims. 

Last night, Mr James Prior, 
Secretary of State for North- 
ern Ireland at the time, denied 
the allegations. “There was no 
question to my knowledge, 
and I would have known, of a 
special bit squad be said.” 

The killings in South Ar- 
magh were investigated by Mr 
John Stalker, deputy chid* 
constable of Greater Manches- 
ter, prior to his suspension. 

The Observer claimed yes- 
terday that one RUC mobile 
support unit was essentially a 
potential death squad of two 
dozen men who killed selected 
IRA targets. 

Mr Archer plans to write to 
Mr Tom King, Secretary of 
Slate for Northern Ireland, 
asking for “an immediate 
public statement about the 
alleged operation of so-called 
'death squads' by the RUG”

Rates ‘pause’ 

A rise in base rates before the

From Alan Hamilton 
Peking 
Smiling broadly and clearly 
relishing the historic moment, 
the first British monarch to set 
foot in the Middle Kingdom 
stepped from a British Air- 
ways Tristar at Peking's 
Shoudu airport yesterday. 

Her presence sets a sol on 
Anglo-Chinese relations 
which, for the first time in two 
centuries, are as warm and 
unclouded as the balmy Pe- 
king autumn afternoon. 

Sixteen hours out from 
London, and after a refuelling 
stop at Muscat, the Tristar 
whispered down through the 
dusty air at the for end of the 
airport and, with the Queen's 
standard hoisted above the 
cockpit, taxied grandly to stop 
at precisely 5 pm before the 
official welcoming party 
which, although small in num- 
bers, was unusually great in 
eminence. 

Steps were wheeled out, 
followed by a man with a 
rolled-up red carpet on a 
baggage trolley. The Duke of 
Edinburgh, who had arrived 
from Tokyo half an hour 
beforehand, entered the air- 



the high regard in which the 
Queen is held. She was greeted 
with an unusually high level of 
protocol. Her welcoming 
party included four govern-

foreign minister, Mr Wu

who presented bouquets, and

Richard Evans. 


Minutes later the Queen, 
dressed in a black and yellow 
silk linen outfit with a broad- 
brimmed white bat, stepped 
out, waved, and paused at the 
fop of the steps to digest a 
sight which rarely greets her 
on her arrival in foreign lands. 

There were no crowds, in- 
deed there was a silence, 
because the official ceremony 
of welcome does not lake 


Polo, and they do not burden 
them with pomp the moment 
their jet-lagged bodies touch 
earth. Nor was there bunting; 
twenty-five flagpoles that 
would have billowed red in 
the days of Mao stood blrakly 
unadorned.

Mr Patrick Forbes, aged 25, who is on holiday In 
California, worked in the Middle Eastern branch of the 
bank's international division anti! March 1985 when he

The dispatch, part of a valedictory letter from Sir James

Geoffrey Howe, Foreign Secretary, was banned from 
publication in the magazine by a High Court injunction. It 
was printed in full in the Glasgow Herald last Thursday.

£3m cocaine haul 


Customs officers yesterday seized one of the biggest 
hauls of cocaine found in Britain, and smashed an 
international drugs smuggling ring. 

More than 15 kflograms of powdered cocaine, with a 
street value of £3 minion, was found in champ ag ne bottles

The drugs were seized as four young women arrived in 
London on a lunchtime flight from Paris. 

Customs officers had been trailing a gang for six months 
in a top-level operation codenamed “Rekindle”. 

Four women and two men were arrested and searches 
were made at premises in Loudon and Harwich, soon after, 
when guns were found.

of cottages at Trewellard, 
Cornwall, owned by the 
Geevor tin mine, Pendeen, 
which closed earlier this 
year, are prepared to go to 
the European Court of 
Human Rights to fight an 
eviction order from the 
mine owners. 

Seven of the 10 cottages 
are occupied and the res- 
idents, including former 
employees and the elderly 
widow of a tin miner, have 
been told they must leave 
by die end of the month. 
The owners want to sell the 
cottages for £300,000 to 
pay for pumping operations 
to keep the mine dry. 


Pupils ‘ill-prepared’ 


Three out of five school-leavers feel their education did 
little to prepare them for the real world, a swey by the 
Manpower Services Commission has shown. The survey 
was conducted among teenagers a year beyond the school 
leaving age of 16. 

Even among those who had fonnd pits, the figure was the 
same, 59 per cent. Among those still in fall-time education, 
more than hatf those interviewed (52 per cent) held the 
same view. 

However, 55 per cent of the sample believed school had 
taught them things that wo old be usefolin a job, 52 percent 
that it had given than confidence to make decisions and 
only II per cent that it had been “a waste of time". 


Hunt for 
attackers 


Police are investigating 
an attack and attempted 
robbery on Mr Roy 
Hatteisley, deputy leader 
of the Labour Party, at 
Easton railway station in 
central London a week ago. 

According to Mr 
Hattersley, be was ap- 
proached by a young man 
and sworn at as he was 
trying to make a telephone 
call. He was sprayed with 
beer, spat on by a girl who 
joined the youth and bis

Hattersley recovered his 
briefcase. 



Jobs for country folk 


A total of 1,136 jobs for the long-term unemployed in ra- 
ni areas have been created under a scheme branched 
jointly last February by the Ministry of Agriculture and the 
Department of the Environment (John Young, Agriculture 
Correspondent, writes). 

The Farm and Countryside Initiative was established to 
assist environmental projects which would provide jobs and 
benefit tbe local community. 

The latest project to be approved is the repair of flood 


damage caused by a hurricane in Arkeugarthdale, North 
Yorkshire, with help from the National Westminster Bank. 


Pathology pay claim 


Six pathologists in London, who are on 24-hour call to 
assist at the scene of suspicious deaths, are demanding a 
salary increase backdated to 1981. 

The pathologists, members of tbe British Medical 
Authority's forensic science committee, want their pay to 
be brought into line with the rest of England and Wales. 

Under a 1981 agreement, doctors outside London who in- 
vestigate suspicious deaths are paid a a call-out fee and a 
retainer to cover their 24-hour availability.

MPs may vote on all-day pub hours 


By Craig Setoo 

The Commons may be 
asked to decide whether Bir- 
mingham should become the 
first city in Britain where 
public houses and dubs can 
officially remain open all day. 

Mr Anthony Beaumont- 
Dark, Conservative MP for 
Birmingham Selly Oak, be- 
lieves that the city council's 
plan for 10am to midnight 
opening hours would receive 
widespread support if Par- 


liament was asked to approve. 

The council wants all-day 
opening hours, at least for a 
trial period, to promote its 
image as an international 
centre for big sporting events 
and conventions. 

Last night Mr Neville 
Bosworth, leader of the 
Conservative opposition on 
the council, said: “The licens- 
ing laws are out of date. We 
are restricted compared to 
other countries. We want a

the Prime Minister reluctant

She is now believed to 
accept that ennobling a new 
batch of peers may help quell 
the rebellious grumbles and 
will recommend to the Queen 
that six new Labour peers are 
created. 

Tbe practice is for that to be

it was about to be activated in 
London for attacks, in Britain 
or on the Continent. 

During the past two weeks 
Special Branch officers have

the Palestinian group. One 
man has been deponed to

The rale about furniture and

penmssion of the Governor or

permit the prisoner to “be

Rules relating to the death 
penalty have also not been 
revoked despite the abolition 
of capital punishment in 1965. 

Tbe report details the many 
occasions on which the in- 
dependent Prison Inspectorate 
has accused the Home Office 
of being in breach of its own 
regulations. Nearly afl the 
Inspectorate's reports contain 
recommendations On safety 
and fire regulations. Hygiene 
has been criticized at several 
establishments. Education 
needs were also not being met 
at some prisons. 

The Prison Reform Trust 
says such breaches cannot 
currently be challenged effec- 
tively by prisoners because the 
Prison Roles are not open to 
legal action.

Air travel 


Tough talk ahead on European fares

By Harvey Effiott, Air Correspondent 


Four weeks of difficult 
lobbying are expected before 
Mr John Moore, Secretary of 
State for Transport, con- 
cludes an agreement in 
Europe’s bitter air dispute. 

In spite of bis promise to the 
Conservative Party con- 
ference to “let foe people fly 
and bring an end .to the 
“ludicrously high . a,r 
within Europe, he is caught 
between two opposing ac- 
tions and could become the 
enemy of both. 

The Netherlands has ac- 
cused Mr Moore of watftng 
down his intention to fora 
through a new agreement on 
improving, competition on 
Europe's air routes, and MB 
made clear that »t will have no 
part in any compromise. 

He has also been acaised. 

particularly by foe 

foe Scandinavians, of frihng 

to understand foe wroplex- 

iticsof the problem, and Of 

rushing ahead too qmck^ 

with plans for fiberaliaanon. 



Mr Moore, as president of 
foe Council of Transport Min- 
isters, has until November 10, 
when foe council meets again 
formally, to reconcile the need 
for some form of agreement 
with the British Government’s 
commitment to ending foe 
cartels which have kept Euro- 
pean air feres high. 

He has already stepped back 
from his original aim of an 
immediate solution to foe 
problem, and has suggested 
instead a series of limned 
interim measures, to be folly 
implemented by 1992. 

Mr Moore finds himself m a 
difficult position as mediator 
after his rousing call to the 
Tory conference. With 544 
feres already below foe stan- 
dard economy rate between 
the 12 principal EEC dues, 
only air links between 
Scandinavia and the rest of 
Europe operate foe kind of 
panel which bare all cheap 

f3 Mr Lars Enkter. headjof ijjp 


political department of the 
Scandinavian Airline System, 
said that an unchecked rush 
towards liberalization would 
harm several airlines. “We 
have a civic duty to provide 
air links from Scandinavia to 
the whole of Europe and 
indeed the world. We also 
must provide air services for 
people living in remote areas, 
well away from the busy 
capital city . routes. That 
means we must fly at a 
scheduled time whether the 
aircraft are foil or not," he 
said. 

Increased competition 
would lead to a short-term fere 
war and a long term problem 
similar to that in the United 
States, where smaller airlines, 
anxious to compete on foe 
most popular routes, have 
been swallowed up by the 
bigger carriers who can afford 
to discount heavily. 

But European air feres are 
starting to fell, mainly because 
of increased competition, foe 


drop in oil prices and cost 
reductions which have seen 
thousands of airline workers 
laid off. 

The next move could be a 
redaction in business rfags 
feres. British Midland Air- 
ways is offering a £69 return 
flight between Heathrow and 
Amsterdam to anyone, regard- 
less of when they book, or how 
long they intend to stay, 
compared with a standard 
economy fere of £84 on KLM 
and £89 on British Airways. 
Mr Michael Bishop, British 
Midland chairman, is con- 
fident foe service will be 
profitable by next year, en- 
abling it to be expanded. 

He said: “There is a lot of 
cheap air travel within 
Europe, but these feres are not 
available to businessmen or 
foe kind of people who want to 
fly spontaneously. Yet if we 
are to expand' trade and 
business in Europe we must 
make air travel more attrac- 
tive.^ 


Scania have never been tempted to compete on 

cost alone. 

Trying to equal some of today's truck prices would 
mean sacrificing too many of our principles and 
too much of your cost-efficiency. 
Instead of investing over 7% of sales turnover in 
research and development, we might have to cut 
a few corners. Which could mean risking our 
hard-won reputation for absolute reliability and for 

fuel economy. 

Instead of manufacturing our own engines, 
gearboxes, axles and cabs, we might have to 
make do with bolting together bits and pieces 
made by someone less dedicated to precision. 


And instead of maintaining 24-hour international 
Lifeline cover, we'd be forced to trim our support 
services to more ordinary levels. 

True, we'd be able to offer you a cheaper truck. But 
it would probably cost you more to run. It certainly 
wouldn t last as long. And when the time comes to 
sell, the return on your initial investment wouldn’t 
be so healthy. 

Scania promise you years of low-cost operation. 
And that more than equals a short-term saving in 
the bargain basement

By Frances Gibb, Legal Affairs Correspondent *

THE TIMES MONDAY OCTOBER 13 1986 

BBC seeks 
global 
TV news 


change lheir practice rules to 
allow “one stop 
conveyancing” and similar 
fee-sharing links with other 
professionals, at their annual 
conference in Torquay this 
week. 

The issue of mixed partner- 
ships has been fuelled by a 


“There is no other way if 
solicitors wish to be involved 
in die mainstream of commer- 
cial and financial activities, 
rather than become a small 
baud of specialists on die 
sidelines*” 

Mr Smith, chairman of the 


Biiuya u*» uwh ~ ■ . — : -- . . 

recent report in favour of society s professional and 
them from Sir Gordon Borne, public relations committee. 


UlVUi IIVIU vvivw- 

Director General oFFair Trad- 
iog, and is expected to give 
rise to one of the liveliest 
debates of the week. 

In his report to the Govern- 
ment, Sir Gordon said that 
solicitors should be able to 
share fees with and enter into 
partnership with other 
professionals. . 

• Under his proposals, which 
are opposed by the Law 
Society, “one stop 
conveyancing" would be pos- 
sible, with solicitors joining up 
with estate agents, valuers and 
surveyors to offer a single and 
comprehensive conveyancing 
package to householders. 

He also envisaged joint 
practices linking solicitors 
with accountants, engineers, 
architects, patent agents and 
medical practitioners. 

, Solicitors at the conference 
will debate a paper from a Law 
Society council member, Mr 
Robin Smith, wbo urges them 


notes a trend towards the 
“dismantling of professional 
codes against advertising”. As 
a result, professional firms 
were becoming multi-disci- 
plinary to attract “sufficient 
clout m the market”. ' 

One firm of chartered 
accountants had recently 
dropped that label and now 
described itself as a “multi- 
disciplinary professional 
corporation” which embraced 
accountants, bankers, pro- 
fessional trustees and lawyers. 

Banks and other financial 
institutions soon would be 
able to employ solicitors and 
offer a wide-ranging and 
competitive range of services, 
he said. Solicitors could either 
offer their traditional service 
or meet the competition head 
on. 

Mr Smith gives a warning 
that if solicitors go it alone, 
they will, in the short term, 
lose business to the market- 


of the kind that accountants 
are putting together, andtothe 
banks and others offering 
those new packages of ser- 
vices. Only a few firms of the 
traditional kind offering a 
specialist service would 
survive. 

Although some professions 
are moving towards muted 
partnerships, the Law Society, 
in a consultation paper drawn 
up earlier this year, said they 
should continue to be banned. 

The paper outlined an over- 
haul of present practice rules 
and called for relaxation of 
rules against advertising. It 
also recommended relaxation 
of the prohibition on solicitors 
obtaining work from third 
parties such as estate agents. 

The other main issue ai the 
conference, to be attended by 
solicitors throughout England 
and Wales, will be new ways of 
funding litigation, in the light 
of proposals from a team of 
government officials to over- 
haul the legal aid scheme. 

The Law Society has made 
dear it intends to look at 
alternatives such as “payment 
by results”, a contingency 
legal aid fund (which would be 
funded by successful litigants 
contributing a share of costs), 
and legal expenses insurance.

Media Correspondent 

The BBC World Service 
expects to announce next 
month that it is ready to go 
ahead with a new inter- 
national television news ser- 
vice to provide a British 
perspective on world events to 
a global audience that could 
grow to hundreds of miliions. 

The service will consist of 
one hour of progra mm i ng 
each day, broken down into 
two half-hour news and cur- 
rent affairs slots. Initially, the 
programmes will be transmit- 
ted only in English. 

Programmes will be distrib- 
uted using satellites owned by 
an international tele- 
communications consortium, 

Intelsat. 

The cost of the scheme has 
not been disclosed, but is 
expected to be more than £10 
million a year. The cost could 
not be met from licence fees 
and would require a direct 
subsidy from the Govern- 
ment. 

• A proposal for a world 
educational television service 
is being developed at the BBC 
by Mr Jim Stevenson, Head of 
BBC Educational Broadcast- 
ing Services. The service, 
which is not directly related to 
the world television news 
scheme, would use sa t ellit es to . 
provide “a continuous rain” 
of educational programmes.

air crashes 

By Keith Hindley 

A discovery by a British 
geologist could prevent 
crashes in the air and warn 
people of earthquakes. 

Dr Gillian Foulger, aged 33, 
a lecturer at Durham Univer- 
sity, has found tint by using 
Navstor satellites orbited by 
the United States she can 
measure the distance betwe en 
any two points on the surface 
of the earth to within a few 

It has immense 

scale the method 
wm detect the slightest creep- 
ing or bnlging that could give 
naming of an imminent earth- 
qaake or volcanic eruption. 

• It will fix the position of an 
offshore oil rig, jungle camp, 

aircraft or ship and provide an 

accurate speed for a moving 
target. . 

• It will also revonmonize 
navigation. Slips could dock 
in the densest fog and aircraft 
need never collide in die aft. 

• Scientists surveying dif- 
ferent parts of the world will 
be able to tie their measure- 
ments into one global network 

Anyone can tone in to their 
signals and Dr Foulger re- 
auzedthat four of the space- 
craft, the minimum needed for 
a fix, are risible from most 
places for a few hours each 
day. 

“The only way we would 
God out if this kind of Geodesy 
or surveying is possible was to 
get out and try it,” she said. 

Last December she began 
the uphill battle to interest 
colleagues and in the spring 
applied Ah' American (raiding 
to survey Iceland and throw 
baselines across the oceans to 
continents near by. 

‘That grant application 
triggered everything,” Dr 
Foulger said. “From then mi 
the telephone never stopped 
rin g in g . We were offered 
receivers aid technicians and 
floppy discs to record results." 

In the end, the Durham 
teams criss-crossed Iceland 
with 2,000 survey tines and 
linked those to sites in Swe- 
den, Greenland, Canada, 
Massachusetts and Alaska. 

“We did years of surveying 
in 12 days,” Dr Foulger said, 
“and the equipment was in- 
credibly easy to use.” 

Now Dr Foulger wants to 
establish Durham University 
as an international centre for 
analysing Navstar ground 
surveys. 

She has applied for a 
£42,000 grant from the Natu- 
ral Environment Research 
Council. 


Changes 
in police 
training 
sought 

Stewart Tendfer 

Crime Reporter 

A Home Office working 
party, cleared after the 
Scarman report mto the 
Brixton riots, is expected to be 
highly critical of police irain- 

‘"^eworiting party, aided by 
staff from East Anglia Uiuver- 
cjiy is understood to recoin- 
mend extending mam 
period of training for police- 
men from 13 weeks to up to 

six months. ... . 

It is said to criticize tire 

training fS’te 

forces at regional centres 

throughout the country. 

The 200 -pagc report, which 
examines the iniud waning 
both for police recruits jhe 
training given dunng a wrtu- 
tionary penod. will b^dehv- 
ered 10 the. Home Offices 
Police Training Council 
today. 

The working party is un- 
happy with attitudes towards 
raw relations and community 
work and suggests greater use 
of human awareness tech- 
niques. as adopted in the new 
training system used by the 
Metropolitan police. 

This would mean young 
policemen would be taught 
how to deal with the public on 
the street, developing tech- 
niques in negotiation, concili- 
ation and recognizing stress 
factors. They m#* abote 
taught how to handle people 
with communication diffi- 
culties or the disabled. 

During their training offi- 
cers might be placed on the 
beat, under dose supervision, 
at a much earlier point than 
they are now. • 

The training centres could 
also switch the emphasis from 
teaching officers considerable 
amounts of law to creating 
situations where they must 
develop their skills as working 
policemen. . 

The working party is also 
understood to have suggested 
that the status of police train- 
ing staff needs to be improved 
and this, is thought to be 
something the Home Office is 
already examining. 

Many training centres have 
already begun to alter their 
services and include a wider 
education. 

The Police Federation, 
which is represented on the 
training council, has reserva- 
tions about some sections of 
the report and there may be 
worries in Whitehall about the 
cost of radical changes at a 
1 time when the police service 
1 has been complaining about 
financial restraints.

Visit to 
N-dumps 
in Europe 

By Trudi McIntosh 

Councillors and advisers 
from Bedfordshire. Lincoln- 
shire and Humberaide County 
Councils will visit nuclear 
waste disposal sites in Europe 
later this month. 

The three councils, mem- 
bers of the County Councils’ 
Coalition, have also re- 
affirmed their united oppo- 
sition to proposals by Nirex, 
the Government’s nuclear 
waste agency, for the shallow 
burial of radioactive waste. 

Mr Dudley Procter, chief 
executive of Lincolnshire 
County Council, said that the 
decision to visit nuclear waste 
dumps in Germany. Sweden 
and France, was in response to 
advice from government min- 
isters, particularly to inspect a 
shallow disposal site at Centre 
de la Manche in France. 

Members of anti-midear 
organizations, including Lin- 
coln Against Nuclear Dump- 
ing (Land), will be going on 
the week-long visitThey will 
prepare a full technical report 
which will be made available 
to the public and MPs after the 
trip. 

Mr Procter said that the 
councils were particularly, in- 
terested in a waste dump in a. 
disused iron ore mine at 
Konrad. West Germany, and 
a Swedish dump in a man- 
made mine beneath the Baltic 
Sea. 


High profile art view 
for travellers by rail 

By Garin Bell, Arts Correspondent 


Railway travellers to and 
from Leeds will shortly be able 
to view the construction of 
what is claimed as the largest 
and most risible piece of 
pnblic art in Britain this 
century. 

The lOOft-high brick sculp- 
ture by Mr Antony Gormley 
from London was chosen from 
a short-list of IS works to 
adorn a triangular piece of 
waste ground between 
converging rail lines outside 
the main city station. 

Mr Janies Hamilton, direc- 
tor of the Yorkshire Contem- 
porary Art group, said it would 
be a toll tower “in generalized 
human form, with high win- 
dows at the ears and a door 
behind the ankles.” 

The work was deliberately 
an titl ed , and would derive its 
name “in a gradual way 
through public familiarity” It 
would take its place among 
. meat traditional British monu- 


ments such as Nelson's col- 
umn and Stonehenge, he raid. 

Mr Gormley said the sculp- 
ture, from focal bricks and 
mortar, would present an im- 
age of a human being made by 
collective labour. It is due to he 
completed by the end of 1987. 
A tift-high model of the figure 
is on show at Leeds Gty .Art 
Gallery.

Planning controls: 1 

Inquiries become 
their own industry 


Anything much bigger than a garden shed needs 
planning permission before it can be built, and some 
developers complain that the complexity of the system 
means that a shed is about all they can hope to build. 
But, as Hugh Clayton reports in the first of three arti- 
cles, there are complaints from both sides of the 
planning fence. 


Builders and property 
developers complain that they 
can never get anything built 
on time because local opinion 
uses the planning system 
against them. 

Local householders who 
fear for their homes and even 
livelihoods- reply that their 
views can quickly be swamped 
by the expensive legal machin- 
ery developers can deploy.. . ! 

The two sides meet at 
planning inquiries, where the 
desire oi builders to build and 
of locals to stop them are 
debated in public. 

The biggest inquiries are not 
just about industry; they are 
small industries themselves 
with teams oflawyers, officials- 
and miscellaneous experts, 
not to mention a regular 
audience of worried locals. 

That pattern has been re- 
peated at all the large inquiries 
of recent years including those 
about the third London air- 
port, the Sizewell B power 
station and the Belvoir coal- 
field. 

The locals are usually fright- 
ened of the proposed new 
motorway, building or indus- 
trial plant that is being dis- 
cussed at the inquiry. Some of 
them can be frighiened by the 
inquiry itself They have to sit 
through long speeches from 
lawyers. 

The chairman of the whole 
thing is called an inspector, 
and be or she is very often a 
lawyer as welL 
The inquiry is not a court, 
but to a layman it sometimes 
looks alarmingly like one. It- 
feels almost as if he is on trial 


for wanting to protect his 
home or its surroundings. 

The ponderous and mea- 
sured ceremonial is meant to 
make sure that everyone has a 
fair hearing. But it can easily 
reinforce the fens held by 
many local people. Local 
objectors complain again and 
again that the odds are stacked 
against them. . 

Their coffee mornings and 
jumble safes generate enough . 
money to finance fimiied re- 
search and perhaps even a 
relatively inexperienced bar- 
rister. Thor opponents, who 
may well be public authorities 
using public money, seem to 
be able to field queues of 
experts from all over the 
world, who brandish sheaves 
of well-marshalled evidence. 

Developers have their own 
list of complaints. One diffi- 
culty pinpointed by the 
Confederation of British In- 
dustry in evidence to a par- 
liamentary select committee 
was that some inspectors were 
“square pegs in round botes". 
An architect might be ap- 
pointed inspector of an in- 
quiry about traffic. 

The Housebuilders' Federa- 
tion complained that local 
inquiries were too parochial 
and that their participants 
paid too little attention to 
regional and national plan- 
ning politics. 

It said when councils de- 
cided the fate of planning 
applications they were 
strongly influenced by local 
opinion "which inevitably op- 
poses change and necessary 
development”. 

Tomo r row; Suspicion. 


An eccentric figure cansed a 
bit of a stir in Fleet Street 
yesterday (Gavin Bell writes). 

WSMshb Boot, intrepid war 
correspondent of The Daily 
Beast, was seen trying to cram 
a collapsible canoe, some deft 
sticks and a mountain of 
useless paraphernalia into a 
London omnibns. en rente for 
a hazardous assignment ia

His - chaotic departure at- 
tracted a film crew from 
London Weekend Television, 
which noted that Mr Boot bore 
an Hncanny resemblance to the 
actor, Michael Maloney. 

One supposes that it was the 
absence of new technology 


that gave the game away. It 
was, of course, Mr Maloney 
(above) playing the lead role in 
an LWT film of Scoop, Evelyn 
Waugh's satire on Fleet Street 
in the 1930s. The £225 million 
production is scheduled for 
transmission n ex t year. 

Meanwhile a herd of camels 
is said to be wending its way 
from Algeria to Morocco, 
which remarkably has none of 
its own, in preparation for 
desert scenes to be shot there 
later this month.

Ethnic art ‘ignored’ 


Theatre companies and arts 

institutions in Britain have 
been accused of ignorance and 
lack of interest in the creativ- 
ity of resident Afro-Carib- 
bean, Asian and other ethnic 
minority groups (Gavin Bell 
writes). 

Mr Gavin Jantjes. a painter 
appointed by the Arts Council 
to monitor a project for 
supporting such groups, says 
the problem is not confined to 
the inner cities of England. 

"The lack of knowledge is a 
national problem. For exam- 


ple, there are black visual 
artists in England whose work 
is acclaimed abroad, yet you 
will find virtually none of it in 
our institutions.” 

A council plan calls for a 
minimum of 4 per cent of 
council expenditure, more 
than £6 million per year, to be 
committed to developing 
Afro-Caribbean and Asian 
arts within two years. 

Projects since April indude

Threat to 
‘Crystal 
Palace’ 
of Wales 

By Charles Knevitt, 
Architecture Correspondent 

The Brynmawr rubber fac- 
tory in South Wales, described 
as the “Crystal Palace of the. 
twentieth century" and the 
only post-war listed building 
outside Scotland, is threat- 
ened with demolition with the. 
help of a £200.000 grant from 
the Welsh Development 
Agency. 

The factory, which stands 
disused and vandalized since 
it was closed by Dunlop 
Semtex four years ago. was 
listed Iasi May as being of 
"world-wide significance''. 
Tenby Lid. a company reg- 
istered in Jersey, Channel 
Islands, which owns the build 1 
ing. has applied to level it to 
make way for an unspecified 
development. A public in- 
quiry imo the demolition plan 
will open next month. The. 
work is likely to cost about 
£500,000 and two-fifths of 
that would be covered by aii 
urban development grant.' v

Partnership and Sir Ove Arup: 

Mr Jeremy Lowe, a senior 
lecturer at the Welsh School of

Vienna Secession art 
finds market uneven 

By Geraldine Norman, Sale Room Correspondent 



Early twentieth _ century 
Viennese design is “in” at the 
moment with an exhibition at 
the Museum of Modem Art in 
New York. But Sotheby’s sate 
there of "Vienna Secessionist 
Works of Art" on Saturday 
had an uneven result with 22 
per cent unsold and a total of 
£470.166. 

The New York sale proved 
less successful than the auc- 
tion of Viennese paintings in 
London last week. 

One explanation is that 
Vienna Secession furniture, 
jewellery and other works of 
an have been highly sought 
after for years while the paint- 
ings of ihc period have not 
been focusedf on in the same 
way and arc only just begin- 
ning to enjov a price boom. 

Josef Hoffmann is one or 
the grandest designer names 
but ail was not plain sailing tor 
his work on Saturday. 

His stained ash Siizmaehme 
armchair failed 10 sell at 
SI 5.000 (estimate 520,000- 
$30,000) and his stained wood 
rocking chair with open egg- 
shaped arms was unsold* 
$17,000 (estimate $30,000- 

$50,000). . h . 

In contrast a stained beecti- 
wood and aluminium writing 
table designed by Otto Wag- 
ner for the Austrian 
PbsLsporkassc and c*ccutedby 
the Gcbrudcr Thonct in I W4- 
06 secured the top pnee ot me 
sale at $46,750 (csunraie 
,000-550.000) or £3U6&* 


It was sold to an American 
collector. 

A beechwood and 
aluminium open armchair de- 
signed by Wagner for the same 
clients made $20,900 (es- 
timate $7,000410,000). or 
£13,933 and was one of four 
top price lots bought ty an 
unnamed European private 
collector. 

He also paid $42,900 (es- 
timate $12,000415,000) or 
£23.600 for the IilhQgrai>hic 
poster by Maximillian 
Kurzweil for the XVflf Seces- 
sion exhibition of 1903, 
$34,100 (estimate $10,000- 
$15,000) or £22,733 for a 
spectacular carved and gilt- 
wood floor lamp. 

It was designed by Dagobert 
Peche for the Wiener 
Werkstatte in about 1920. 

A beechwood and maple 
writing table and chair de- 
signed by Josef Hoffmann 
about 1904-06 went for 
$29,700 (estimate $20,000- 
$25,000) or £19.800. the most 
expensive Hoffmann piece to 
find a buyer. 

Another unnamed Euro- 
pean collector spent $19,800 
(estimate $8.000412,000) or 
£13.200 on a latge enamelled 
silver brooch designed by 
Koloman Moser and made by 
the Wiener Werkstatte about 
1909. , . 

It is 5cm square and depicts 
the head - and shoulders of a 
woman enveloped in an exotic 
feather cloak. .

agenda on

From Eduardo Cu6 
Buenos Aires 
British and Argentine MPs 
agreed over the weekend on a 
four-point agenda for di£ 
missions next spring at a 
meeting designed to break the 
four-year-okl freeze in rela- 
tions between their countries. 

Although the two delega- 
tions cannot negotiate, the 
development was seen as a 
positive step by Conservative 
and Labour members of the 
British delegation who travell- 
ed here for a congress. 

"It's generally my im- 
pression that we are inching 
forward to a better under- 
standing because the climate 
is getting warmer ” Mr David 
Crouch. Conservative MP for 
Canterbury and the delegation 
chairman, said on Saturday. 

The two groups agreed xo 
discuss the 1985 United Na- 
tions General Assembly reso- , 
lution that urges both coun- ; 
tries to discuss all aspects of 
the Falklands dispute, but j 
which does not mention the is- , 
sue of sovereignty, the possi- ; 
biiity of establishing a joint ! 
British-Argentine Comraiss- 1 
ion to continue contacts, the 
restoration of diplomatic rela- 
tions. and steps to prepare 
public opinion in both coun- 
tries for a possible compro- 
mise agreement 
Conservative and Labour 
members of the nine-man de- 
legation emphasized that they 
had not bowed to Argentine 
demands to discuss the sov- 
ereignty of the Falklands. 

The agreement to set an 
agenda came at an informal 
session between the British 
and Argentine delegations to 
the In ter- Parliamentary 
Union congress. 

On Saturday the group 
adopted a strongly-worded re- 
solution introduced by the Ar- 
gentines re-affirming Beunos

Howe in 
poll 

side-step 

From David Bonavia 
Hong Kong 

Sir Geoffrey Howe, foe 
Foreign Secretary, yesterday 
side-stepped questions about 
China's objections to foe in- 
troduction of direct elections 
to the Hong Kong Legislative 
Council. 

Before leaving for Peking to 
join the Queen and Duke of 
Edinburgh for their week-long 
visit to China, Sir Geoffrey 
said that implementation of 
the 1 984 Anglo-Chinese agree- 
ment on the future of Hong 
Kong was “£oing well”. 

The Foreign Secretary said 
he had “listened carefully” to 
expressions of Hong Kong 
opinion on the new basic law 
for the territory, which is to 
revert to Chinese sovereignty 
in 1997. “The Chinese Gov- 
ernment is tackling this vital 
task in a thorough way.” 


Food airlift 
under way 
in southern 
Sudan 

From Charles Harrison 
Nairobi 

Operation Rainbow, the 
UN-backed food airlift to 
famine-hit areas of southern 
Sudan, got off foe ground yes- 
terday when a Hercules C 130 
transport plane, which had 
been waiting at Khartoum for 
mom than two weeks, left for 
lsiro, in north-east Zaire with 
16 tons of food and medicines 
aboard. 

From lsiro the food will he 
taken 300 miles by road to Ju- 
ba, the main town in southern 
Sudan. Plans to fly direct to 
Juba had to be abandoned be- 
cause of problems in arranging 
insurance cover. 

The airlift to the south, 
where more than two million 
people are facing famine, has 
been halted since August, 
when guerrillas of the Sudan 
People’s Liberation Army 
(SPLA) shot down a civilian 
Fokker Friendship airliner, 
killing all 60 people aboard, as 
it look off from Malakal, 
south of Khartoum. 

The SPLA had threatened 
to shoot down any planes 
flying over the "war zone”. 

Arrangements were made to 
fly food to lsiro when insurers 
were reluctant to provide 
cover for the plane on flights 
to Juba or other centres in 
Sudan. Elaborate plans have 
been made xo send trucks and 
fuel to lsiro and there were 
further delays in obtaining 
clearance for foe flights from 
the Zaire authorities. 

Yesterday the Sudan Gov- 
ernment announced it was or- 
ganizing its own food airlift. 
Civilian aircraft of Sudanair 
are being convened to carry 
cargo to Juba, Wau, Malakal 
and other centres, the Min- 
ister of Cabinet Affairs, Mr 
Salah Abdel-Salam, said in 
Khartoum. 

Latest reports say scores of 
people are dying from famine 
and famine-related diseases in 
the south.

Democrats lose grip on power base 

Reagan wins Southern hearts 


The American South is under- 
going dramatic social, politi- 
cal demographic and econom- 
ic change. The historic dom- 
ination of the Democratic 
Party shows dear signs of 
weakening. In the first of two 
articles, Christopher Thomas 
reports from New Orleans on 
the far-reaching consequences. 

It has been said that South- 
erners vote the way their 
daddy shot in the Civil War. 
That legacy of distrust of the 
Yankees survives- today to a 
quite astonishing degree, with 
all 11 states of the old confed- 
eracy still bastions of devotion 
to tiie Democratic Party. 

But the monolith is track- 
ing. The Republicans are 
pouring campaign money into 
Dixie like bourbon at mardi 
gras. Here the great question 
of American politics awaits 
answer: Is realignment going 
on, is the Republican Party 
going to seize, finally, the 
cherished mantle of majority

To many, the Democratic

Blacks, meanwhile, remain

The -arms control 
began discussions at

remaining three issues, broke 
up at 4.30am.

Mr Nitze were Mr . Max

adviser. Mr Kenneth Add- 
man, director of the Arms

Agency; Mr Richard Perie,

President Reagan and Mr 
Mikhail Gorbachov, the 
Soviet leader, spent far longer 
together, arguing over the 
details of arms control, than 
either, had expected at the 
beginning of the summit 

After an extended session 
yesterday morning,. , they de- 
cided at the last minute to 
reconvene for an unscheduled 
fourth session, making a total 
of more than eight hours of 
intensive talks. 

Contrary to their earlier 
expectations, they also spoke 
most of the tune together with 
their Foreign Ministers, Mr 
George Shultz and Mr Eduard 
Shevardnadze, an indication 


sues ■ rather than just : the. 
generalities. ' It bad been 
thought that most . of their 
meetings -would be “one on 
one" 1 . 

Before the final session 
yesterday, Mr Shultz and Mr 
Shevardnadze held a separate 
meeting on their own. 

In the middle of the talks 
the groups of experts, set up 
on Saturday to report to the 
two leaders on arms oontrol as 
well as regional conflicts and 
bilateral and humanitarian 
questions, held marathon ses- 
sions that did not finish until 
dawn yesterday morning. 

The two groups were 
beaded by Mr Paul Nitze, Mr 
Reagan's senior arms control 
adviser, and Mr Viktor 
Karpov, the leader of the 
Soviet arms negotiating team 
in Geneva, and by Mrs 
Roza one Ridgway, the Assis- 
tant Secretary of State for 
European affairs, and her 
Soviet counterpart Mr Alex- 


from the National Security 
Council. 

... Mrs Ridgway was. assisted 
by Mr Arthur Hartman, the 
US Ambassador in Moscow; 
Mr Peter. Rodman and Mr 
Jack Matlock from the Na- 
tional Security Council; Mr 
Thomas Simons, deputy assis- 
tant Secretary of State for. 
European Affairs, and Mr 
Mark Parris, head, of the 
Soviet desk at the State . 
Department 

The US experts reported to 
Mr Reagan after breakfast 
yesterday. It : ■ soon became 
dear that the Sunday session 
between Mr Reagan and Mr 
Gorbachov involved a lot of 
tough, frank speaking, es- 
pecially on arms control — the 
field in which the Russians are 
determined to make the most 
progress. 

Mr Reagan, however, re- 
fused to budge on several key 
issues, especially intermedi- 
ate-range nuclear forces, his

The handshake, a 
smile and the 
art of summitry 

From Michael Binyon, Reykjavik 


That first handshake was 
what Iceland and the world 
had been waiting for. 

The sleek Mack Z3 limou- 
sine pulled past the cameras, 
Mr Gorbachov walked np to 
the door of the modest white 
chipboard hoaseand President 
Reagan emerged, wearing a 
white scarf and a warm smile. 

As be grasped the Soviet 
leader by the arm the small 
talk started. The world's press 
could only guess, but whatever 
President Reagan said, it 
prompted Mr Gorbachov to 
consult his watch earnestly. 
Could it have been, “you’re 
late"? Icelandic television 
noted it was oo the dot of 
1030 am. 

The cordial greeting was 
repeated in the afternoon, 
when Mr Gorbachov played 
host For the third session 
yesterday Mr Larry Speakes, 
the White House spokesman, 
characterized it as “a warm 
greeting". How did he know? 
“Well, the President smiled, 
and they disenssed the 
weather again. The weather is 
always a good sign." 

In Iceland the unpredictable 
succession of sun, showers, 
wind, sleet. Master, rainbows 
and son again conld be a meta- 
phor for the talks, though one 
hopes they were less mercuri- 
al. To the waiting world, and 
especially to harassed tele- 
vision reporters talking their 
way through a news blackout, 
every little indication became 
a sign, a hint. 

"The Americans scored 
their first symbolic victory

Still, the atmosphere does

the most that could be elicited 
from the taciturn Admiral

Mr Gorbachov has had less 
practice with such repartee in

adding yet more paper to the 
heaps of pre-summit briefings, 
pool reports, news agency 
flashes and met sheets that lie 
on the floor under a tangle of 
television cables. 

The Icelandic organizers, 
gradually relaxing as the end 
ts in sight, have been patting 
out questionnaires to see what

Pianist’s 
family 
given visas 

Vancouver (AP) — Inna 

Ta rjinlrin, the Russian ennrart 

pianist now living in Canada, 
says she has been told that 
Soviet authorities have agreed 
to let her mother and grand- 
mother emigrate after nine 
years of refusing exit visas. 

“It’s very exciting — yon 
can't imagine how I feel," Mrs 
Zarankin, aged 33, said. 

Mrs Zarankm said she was 
told Soviet officials have 
promised to issue exit visas to 
her mother, Nusya Markov-

77. Her father died last year. 


Raisa Gorbachov’s winning image 


From Christopher Walker 
Reykjavik 

In the glaring absence of 
Mrs Nancy Reagan, un- 
satisfactorily explained by 
embarrassed US officials, the 
Reykjavik summit handed 
Mrs Raisa Gorbachov another 
storming victory hr the Soviet' 
effort to change its image in 
the outside worn. 

. At times erudite, amiable 
* and gracefully accommodating 
to the pursuing news men , the 
53-yearHdd Fust Lady also 
used the programme arranged 
for her to defy the rumblings of 
discontent at home about her 
expensive do thing and jet-set 

y p[w»aranff . 

Her remarks also helped 
provide her husband with a 
more human one of the 
Hifof aim* of the well-ofled 
Soviet propaganda machine. 
Asked pofartej&y if the couple 
minded having to sleep on a 
Russian ship in a Mastery 
Icelandic harbour she replied 
with a smile: “No, it is rather 
romantic." 

' Even the bariy KGB guards 
Hptailgd id accompany her 
motorcade through Reykjavik 
and to remoter areas on the 
volcanic island appeared on 
their best behaviour, un- 
characteristically handing out 
Russian sweets to reporters 
ami even lifting op small, 
children to give a 

glimpse of thefr charge. 


By last night, the Icelanders 
in charge of her hastily- 
arranged toar, ranging from an 
open-air geothermal swim- 
ming pod to a church farm run 
by an Icelandic anti-alcohol 
campaigner, were co m pari ng 

her performance to that of the 

Princess of Wales, also a 
favourite here. 

At the city’s largest outdoor 
pool, Mrs Gorbachov chatted 
with the pink-skinned swim- 
mers in the steaming waters 
and told them bow much she 
liked the country. As she left 
to go on to the institute which 
houses 13th century manu- 
scripts of the sagas, the hardy 
bathers gave her a sponta- 
neous round of applause. 

“I just cannot understand 
why the Americans did not 
bother to send Mrs Reagan, it 
has done the i r Image no end of 
harm,'* one Foreign Ministry 
official said. “The reason they 
ve to ns was that she was too 
to make the jommey, but 
frankly I do not believe it. 
Perhaps they were frightened 
of bong upstaged." 

In answer to repeated ques- 
tions about tire absence erf the 
President's wife, US officials 
said that they had been sur- 
prised by Mrs Gorbachov's 
decision to accompany her 
husband and noted with a 
tonch of aridity that the Soviet 
leader had originally proposed 
tire weekend meeting as a 
working session. They denied

fielding questions about Mrs

land's thriving tradition of 
democracy after sbe had 
toured the local- Parliament, 
Mrs Gorbachov responded 
without hesitation: “One has 
to think about these things a 
bit Do you have an opinion?" 

Observers from Moscow 
noted that Mrs Gorbachov 
appeared unflustered as a 
result of the recent whispering 
campaign there about what 
some Soviet Communists al- 
lege b ho- over-opulent life- 
style: Soviet sources say she

reporters that she had given

sciences, I have stopped teach- 
ing but I do not forget my 
saeatrfic interest Now I 
spend a lot of time with the 
family and with the General 
Secretary (of the Communist 
Party) on his travels."

Nato wins a round but the series continues 

Politics rules in INF chess 


From Frederick Boaxrart, Brussels 


At the heart of the Reyk- 
javik summit has been an 
arms control agreement in 
outline on intermediate-range 
nuclear forces (INF), after a 
long-drawn-out series of chess 
games m which Mr Mikhail 
Gorbachov, the Soviet leader, 
has acknowledged a Nato 
victory. But it is unlikely to be 
the last game. 

To understand it, it is 
essential to realize that 
nuclear weapons in general 
and INF missiles in particular 
are essentially political. 

This special series of games 
started in 1977 when the 
Soviet high command began 
deploring SS20 missiles. 

Although the Soviet side 
called this a mere moderniza- 
tion of their SS4 and SS5 
missiles, the introduction of 
comparatively small three- 
warhead mobile missiles, with 
a range of just under 3,000 
miles, was a fundamental 
change which challenged the 
East-West nuclear balance. 

This balance had been rec- 
ognized fry the United Stales 
and the Soviet Union. 

In May 1972, the first 
strategic arms limitation 
agreement (Salt I) was signed, 
and negotiations for further 
limitations began in Novem- 
ber that year. But they dealt 
specifically with strategic mis- 
siles with a range of more than 
3.000 miles and were based on 
the strategy of mutually as- 
sured destruction. 

When the SS20 deployment 
started, therefore, several 
European leaders, in particu- 
lar Herr Helmut Schmidt, 
then West German Chan- 
cellor, pointed out that Europe 
would_soon.be vulnerable to 


credibility, it was simply not 
credible that an American 
president would trigger the 
certain destruction of his 
country by launching a strate- 
gic nuclear strike on the Soviet 
Union in a case where Ameri- 
can territory was. not under 
threaL 

It therefore became likely 
that the two halves of the Nato 
alliance would become un- 
coupled. 

Nato military staffs worked 
on an answer and came up

At the same time SS20 
deployment continued stead- 
ily in the western Soviet 
Union, as well as beyond the 
Urals. 

From 10 SS20s deployed at 
the end of 1977, the total, had 
risen to 360 by November 
1983, when the first cruise 
missiles arrived at Greenham 
Common in Britain and the 
first Pershing 2s at Mutlangeo 
in West Germany. 

Arms control efforts went 
on in parallel with deploy- 
ment. INF negotiations had 
began in Geneva in Novem- 
ber 1981, triggered by a speech 
by President Reagan. 

Various proposals, such as 
President Reagan's “zero 
solution" and the Geneva 
“walk in the woods" com- 
promise by senior negotiators 
in July 1982. all foiled 

So did the Soviet propa- 
ganda campaign. 

When the Pershing and 
cruise deployment began in 
November ‘1983, the Soviet 
side walked out of negotia- 
tions. It took a summit meet- 
ing to get them going s pun 

If, as now seems likely, the 
two sides agree on a limit of 
100 INF tyarheads each in 
Europe, and proportionate 
restriction of their potential in 
the eastern Soviet Union and 
the US, the “zero solution" 
will have been brought nearer. 

No doubt many will heave a 
sigh of relief, -and, indeed, a 
match will have been won by 
the West

World levy urged 
on home taping 

From Richard Wigg, Madrid 


Authors, composers and 
copyright holders from 60 
countries meeting in Madrid 
have called on governments to 
introduce immediate schemes 
to ensure they are rewarded 
for the “extensive and still 
growing” home taping of their 
works. 

Coinciding with the hun- 
dredth anniversary of the 
signing of the Berne Conven- 
tion oh copyright, the 35th 
Congress of the International 
Confederation of Authors and 
Composers, which ended on 
Saturday, highlighted the 
problem of artistic property 
rights in the face of the 
explosion of reproduction 
technology. 

The authors, composers and 
songwriters want a scheme 
imposing a levy, or royalty, on 
the sale of blank tapes and 
audio or video tape recorders, 
with the proceeds being allot- 
ted by their professional 
bodies. 

Such a scheme was pio- 
neered by West Germany 20 
years ago. In Britain the trade 
is now expecting similar leg- 
islation to be introduced in 
Pari foment this autumn. 

Six times more hours of 
music are being taped than are 
sold as records, according to 
the estimate given to the 


Congress by Mr Denis de 
Freitas, chairman of the Brit- 
ish Copyright Council 
• In the UK, he said, 18 
million adults regularly copied 
from the radio or records and 
73 per cent of British homes 
had tape recorders. Figures for 
video film home taping ip- 
dicated similar proportions. - 

Another estimate, basal on 
tile German experience, sug* 
gests that authors and" 
composers in Europe would 
earn an extra £35 million to' 
£70 million each year ff a 5 per 
cent levy were put mo hard*, 
ware and 10 per cent on tapes. 

M . Jeap- Loup Toumier, 
president of the International 
Copyright Society, attacked 
what be ca lied “the powerful 
lobby, of tape producers, es- 
pecially in Japan, the United 
States, Germany and The 
Netherlands”; • 

The day the Congress 
opened Spanish police made 
their biggest seizure yet of 
“pirate" video films, with bn 
estimated value of £20 million. 

In a house on Madrid’s 
outskirts police found 502 
master films, 1,600 empty 
films, and more than 5,000 
tapes , plus, extensive 
reprod uction equipment. An 
electronics technician was 
arrested. 


French silent

From Susan MacDonald

spokesman said they were

Professor Francis Perrin, was 
quoted in the Sunday Times 
as saying that France and 
Israel worked closely at the 
end of the 1950s on develop-

US to aid 
Delhi on 
weapons 

From Michael Hamlyn 
Delhi 

Mr Caspar Weinberger, the 
US Defence Secretary, began 
discussions with the iwlfan 
Government at die weekend 
which coaid birag about a 
much closer reSatfoaship be- 
tween the vurid^two largest 
democracies. 

In talks with Mr Rqflr 
Gandhi, the Indian Prime 
Minister, which lasted Vh 
hours, Mr Weinberger under- 
took to help India to develop 
its weapon systems. 

“We think we can do it in a 
number of ways," Mr Wein- 
berger. said, indudiug co- 
production agreements. 

He made a point of adding 
that. reBance on the Soviet 
Union for weapons s y stems 
broaght.witb it . a neat deal 
more than the owners manual: 
ft brought a great deal of 
influence. He did not say, 
though it is certaiaiy under- 
stood by observers here, Oat 
US influence on India might 
grow if Delhi hays American 
technology. 

The Indians are keen to 
acquire jet e n g ine and radar 
technology. One item of in- 
terest is the so-called super- 
computer. The latest genera- 
tion of these devices lias a 
military application, but India 
psrticnlarly wants it to develop 
its understanding of the va- 
grant monsoons. 

America has been willing to 
supply it but only under 
stringent conditions to prereot 
the detailed technology frou 
tolling into Soviet hands. Indi 
has resented most of these 
conditions as an I n f ri ng em ent 
of its sovereignty, and Mr 
Weinberger has been seeking 
a way around this Impasse. 

“We don’t have a set of rigid 
roles for everbody that are 
unftbraly applfcai*,” he fold 
journalists. “We work in an ad 
hoc situation in each case." 

If India gets the super- 
computer it will be the 6rrt 
time it has been supplied to a 
non-Nato country, and the 
first in the Third World. The 
actual conditions would be 
worked out by teams of ex- 
perts, Mr Weinberger said. 

Observers here see his visit 
as an attempt to nudge India 
away from its dose relation- 
ship with the Soviet Union. 


Modai row 
delays 
Jerusalem 
handover 

From Ian Murray 
Jerusalem 

The planned handover to- 
morrow of' g ww imwif from 
Mr Shimon Peres, the Israeli 
Prime Minister, to Mr Yitz- 
hak StaznuVthe Foreign Min- 
ister, may pot now be possible 
because of the negotiating 
trace between the Israeli 
political parties which has to 
be observed today for Yom 
Kippur, die Day of Atonement. 

Although there is no serioas 
doubt that the handover win 
take place this week, several 
details hive yet to be agwwd, 
most importantly the future of 
Mr Yitzhak Modai,tbe cabi- 
net Minister who lost bis job 
in July for being consistently ; 
rode to Mr Peres. 

Mr Medal the liberal lead- 
er who, as Minister of Fi- 
nance, was in charge of the 
austerity policy which has 
dramatically improved the Is- 
raeli economy, was sacked by 
Mr Peres after having been 
shifted for insubordination a 
couple of months earlier to the 
nsn?J backwater of the Min- 
istry of Justice. 

Instead of retiring into 
oblivion, Mr Modal was thrust 
into the limelight because he 
had overall responsibility for 
the inquiry into Shin Bet, the 
counter-teteOigence agency, 
over its role in the killing of 
two Palestinians in 1984.

Scientist wary of Dounreay 

Norway fears UK 
nuclear accident 


From Tony Samstag, Oslo 


. A Cheraobyl-style accident 
in the proposed fast-breeder 
reactor at Dounreay could 
affect Norway as seriously as if 
an atom bomb had exploded 
over Britain, a Norwegian 
scientist has said. 

Great quantities of radio- 
active fallout, including pluto- 
nium, would be carried to the 
Norwegian coast, 250 miles 
away, by winds and currents, 
said Dr Johan Baarli, director 
of the National Institute for 
Radiological Hygiene. 

The most seriously affected 
pans of the country would 
have to be evacuated, and 
many Norwegians would be 
issued with gas masks. 

In a newspaper interview at 
the weekend. Dr Baarli Urged 
the Government to draw up ' 


contingency plans for such an 
accident if Britain persevered 
in the Dounreay develop- 
ment “We must be prepared 
for the worst; sabotage.” he 
said. “But it also follows that 
we must allow for an accident 
caused by human or technical 
failure. We are talking about 
radioactive contamination of 
fish, food and air." 

Contamination of food- ’ 
stuffs from plutonium would 
be at least a hundred and 
possibly a thousand times 
higher than that caused by 
caesium after Chernobyl 

Dr Baarli emphasized the 
need for an efficient informa- 
tion and publicity service in 
such an emergency, and for a 
network of radiation monitor- 
ing Stations. 


Mr Yitzhak Shamir waving as he arrives for talks with Mr Feres in Jerusalem yesterday." Swedes dash on fallout 


Pats and w*s dismissed. Now 
Mr Shamir is insisting on 
bringing him hack into the 
Cabinet, although Mr Peres 
says be will not save with a 
man who has been so rude to 
him in the past. 

A possible compromise put 
forward by the Labour Party 
has been rejected by Mr 
Shamir. Nevertheless it could 
stiB form the basis of an 
agreement 

It involves reducing the 
over-large Cabinet from 25 to 
23, with Mr Modai being kept 


out and with no replacement 
being found for Mr Mordechai 
Gnr, the Labour Health Min- 
ister, who is refusing to serve 
at ad trader Mr Shamir. 

Labour Party leaders meet 
tomorrow morning to review 
the matter so it will not be until 
later in the day tint negotia- 
tions on the new government 
can be completed. This means 
ft is row BnUkeiy that Mr 
Shamir will be' able to take 
over fbr another day or more. 

Both leaders are pnbtidy 
committed to the handover. 


Church survey

poor in Spain 

Madrid — More than 20 per 
cent of Spanish families .are 
living in poverty, receiving 
less than the legal minimum 
wage of £230 a month, accord- 
ing to a survey by the Catholic ! 
Church. (Richard Wigg , 
writes). The Church investi- 
gators estimate a total of eight 
million poor people in Spain. 


From Christopher Mosey, Stockholm 


Sweden's Energy and Envir- 
onment Minister, Mrs Birgitta 
Dahl, yesterday clashed with 
the country’s Radiation Pro- 
.tcction Institute over the ef- 
fects on Sweden of heavy 
radioactive fallout from the 
Chernobyl explosion. 

Mrs Dahl angrily refected 
an institute proposal that safe 
radiation levels for food be 
raised from 300 becquerels of 
caesium 137 to 1,000 bec- 
querels. 

This would free large 


amounts of condemned rein- 
deer meat for human con- 
sumption and save the 
Government millions of kro- 
nor in compensation to the 
Lapp community. 

“If the institute wants to 
raise levels, that is their 
business," Mrs Dahl said. 
“But there is no reason to 
change. No one must ever be 
given grounds for thinking 
that we put economic consid- 
erations before public health, 
security and safety."

were back with the voting

fortunes of students and 
at Newcastle University, has 
attracted attention as a “non- 
fiction soap"; in practice, this 
means that several flies on 
several walls have their views 
spliced together to mimic nar- 
rative structure, (it used to be 
known as editing). Thus, shots 
of students frolicking in the 
surf were intercut with shots of 
staff badgering away at a 
budgetary crisis: youth has fan 
while age has worries. 

- What the series certainly is 
proving Is that youngsters are 
much better at acting them- 
selves for the camera than are 
oldsters.

**I used to drive one of those," he 
says, seeing a tractor ploughing the 
land; and so he did, once he’d 
graduated from picking the cotton in 
the fields round his home town of 
Indianola. in the heart of the Mis- 
sissippi delta. 

“It was hard work," he continues, 
“but no harder than anything else. 
You accepted it as part of your 
responsibility and I took pride in 
being able to make an honest living." 

Such honest labour earned King 
$22.50 a week to start with, and the 
prospect of buying one of the $200- 
$300 electric guitars be saw in the 
pages of the Sears & Roebuck cat- 
alogues was rendered even more 
remote by the fact that there was no 
electricity in his part of town. 

How he went from busking on 
street comers to playing the Beale 
Street blues clubs of Memphis, 
cutting his first record in 1949 and 
eventually becoming the foremost 
extant blues performer in the world, 
is one of those rare stories of a 
musician to which the much misused 
epithet “legendary" may accurately 
be applied. He has recorded an 
impressive 67 albums and has no 
intention of retiring. 

.He sits at the front of the bus, 
where he has the clearest view, an 
expansive figure gazing through 
monogrammed brown-shaded 
glasses, his hands resting on the table 
in front of him. On his wedding finger - 
he wears a huge, diamond-studded 
ring wrought in the shape of a double 
B (for Sues Boy), a gift he received 
from a record company executive in 
1953. 

He weighs 260 pounds, but from, 
the way he laughs about it he gives the 


impression that what irks him most 
about his weight is the bother of 
having to shop in specialist stores for 
his size 52 suits. King always wears a 
neatly-pressed suit on stage, as do his 
seven backing musicians, 

“i like to flunk that we look 
presentable," he says. “I used to wear 
jeans on the plantation. That's fine 
for on the street, but if you want to 
earn respect from an audience wear- 
ing jeans or whatever, you've got to 
look smart And that's the rules of my 
band." 

King's band is certainly one of the 
quietest most orderly troupes I've 
travelled with. King is no bullying 
martinet — quite the reverse — but 
they treat him with deep respect 
especially in the presence of strangers. 

' It is another of King's rules that 
while touring at such length in dose 
quarters, they do not enter into 
discussions on religion, race rela- 
tions, politics or sexual matters; 
"These are arguments that you can't 
win." King sees the whole band as an 
ambassadorial team and any pros- 
elytizing is restricted to the subject of 
the blues. 

King's desire to introduce people to 
the blues borders on the messianic, 
and is one of the reasons he advances 
for maintaining such an in tensive and 
for-flung schedule. In recent years his 
band have travelled not just to the 
established rock markets like Japan, 
Europe and Australasia, but also as 
.for afield as Africa, Israel South 
America and the Soviet Union. 

But even a man of his diplomatic, 
forgiving nature would not contem- 
plate a visit to South Africa. "I grew 
up in the segregated South," be says, 
by way of explanation. "And it's hard 
for me to even tell you what it's like. 
There's been times when I wasn't 
allowed to go fn to buy a hamburger, 
and 1 could have bought the cafe." 

Among the many honours which 
have been bestowed on him. King has 
received three honorary doctorates — 
one, from Yale, being awarded at the 
same ceremony at which Gerald Ford 
was similarly honoured. Ford asked 
King for his autograph and according 
to King's manager, the former presi- 
dent is still a paid-up member of 
King's fan club. 

King is now a highly respected 
individual, but he re main* intensely 


Busing it: after thousands of concerts worldwide. King still enjoys touring 


aware of the needs and wants of the 
audiences that have put him where he 
is. One word of criticism in a review 
will set him thinking about whether 
he could improve some aspect of his 
performance. 

He never decides on a fixed 
running order, preferring to sound 
out the audience with the first few 
numbers and then lean in whichever 
direction he judges they would prefer. 
He usually gets it right 

Divorced now for 16 years, he 
leases a place in Las Vegas for the few 
weeks that he spends "at home" each 
year. Although the current consensus 
among his 1 4 grandchildren is that he 
shouldn't be too hasty, be plans to 
many in the next five or 1 0 years, but 
is happy to be "dating" for the 
moment

Intermezzo 

Royal, Glasgow 


OPERA 


Richard Strauss's domestic 
comedy cuts right across the 
central assumptions of 
romanticism, but since its 
mode is ironic, it demands a 
perfect achievement in the 
execution. Anything less and 
the contrived nature of the 
enterprise begins to seem a 
fault rather than the virtuoso 
feat it is. We want to see the 
conjurer pull off his trick with 
total mastery. 

At Glyndeboume it was so. 
Three years ago Felicity Lon 
gave a magnificent perfor- 
mance in the central role, and 
John Cox’s production moved 
smartly within the pastiche 


1920s vulgarity of Martin 
Battersby’s decors. But now 
the same production is less 
entrancing. The sets look 
dowdy and awkward on the 
larger stage. 


The orchestral playing, too, 
isses the glamour of this 


misses the glamour of this 
brilliant, if empty, score. Ste- 
phen Barlow presses his or- 
chestra hard at times, and he 
has many of the right ideas; 
the problem is that the violins 
are not up to Strauss's rapture 
nor the brass to his radiance. 

Another difficulty is that the 
theatre is simply too large for 
this entertainment Originally 
Intermezzo was given in a 
small house, and Strauss was 


understandably, adamant that 
every word of so conversa- 
tional a piece must be beard. 

At Glyndebourne it was, but 
in Glasgow there is just no 
possibility of catching every- 
thing — especially from the 
higher voices. Alan Opie, as 
the husband, sounds splen- 
didly sensible and sure, but 
Beverly Morgan, as the wife, is 
not so easily followed in her 
tantrumsJShe does not help 
herself 'by so much staccato 
singing in the upper register. 
When she relaxed more she 
showed a capacity for fine- 
toned seductive lyricism. 
Among the rest, Ian Caley is a 
suave Baron Lummer and 
Kate Flowers gets her laughs 
as the maid.

It does not always follow that 
hyperactivity on stage makes 
for partial anaesthesia of the 
baton; but ft can happen, and 
in the case of Giles Havergal’s 
Barber of Seville it does. 

■ Since the production (in' 
conjunction with the Vancou- 
ver and Welsh national op- 
eras) opened at Cardiff in the 
spring, things have hardly 
settled. Russell Craig's lov- 
ingly detailed open-plan cross- 
section of Rosina's household 
is every bit as irresistible to 
the eye, but musically the 
produrtion is all too resistible 
to the ear. Rossini's music has 
to contend with both banter 
and a baton which tug merci- 
lessly against its every note. 

Clive Timm’s conducting is 
scarcely less laborious than 
Robert David MacDonald's 
translation: this is bandstand 
Rossini, tough on the singers 
and tougher still on the 
audience. 

It is a pity, for Opera North 
has assembled a cast with 
considerable comic and stylis- 
tic potential. Harry Nicoll 
with his featherweight tenor, 
is not happily cast as Count 
Almaviva; but Beverley 
Mills's Rosina and Peter 
SaVidge's Figaro lacked only 
guidance in how to tailor their 
voices to their parts. 

David Wilson-Johnson and 
Give Bayley as Bartolo and 
Basilio seem to have more and 
better ideas of their own, and 
know well enough how to pick . 
up their cues from Rossini*) 
himself. Wilson-Johnson’s I 
Old King Cole of a Doctor is a 
masterpiece of comic timing, 
and this musically astute 
Basilio could give several of 
his colleagues a singing lesson. 

But they function m isola- 
tion. With each character a 
mere caricature, there can be 
little sense of personal iden- 
tity. Without this, they can 
hardly be expected to relate to 
each other. 


Lonely Street could be an 
exercise in mischievous pas- 
tiche. I take it at face value as 
it contains some characters- 
that defy mockery and others 
so funny as to defeat ridicule. 

The action centres on the 
death of old Aunt Pearl and a 
family get-together to learn 
the contents of her wilL There 
are the direct relatives, Ruth 
(the poet) and her brother 
Raymond, a soap-opera idol 
briefly in from New York. 
There are the local cousins. 
King and Gairice. with slen- 
der daims. but avid appetite, 
for the estate. Receiving the 
visitors is Pearl's life-long 
black companion, Annabel 




Humucutt and Protheroe, a sharp-edged partnership 


Lee, who is unswervingly 
convinced that the house be- 
longs to her. 

The point at issue is the old 
Southern question of heritage. 
Should the ramshackle estate 
foil into King's clutches and be 
bulldozed to make way for a 
shopping mall “for Christian 
merchants"? Or should it be 
patched up and restored to 
life? And. if so, by whom? 

Miss Beer steers away from 


examining what the heritage (a 
former plantation) represents 
— and is none too clear on 
what better use it could be pul 
to. 

But the action goes some 
way to answering these ques- 
tions by identifying the 
characters themselves as liv- 
ing embodiments of Southern 
tradition. King and his tyr- 
annously sweet-talking wife 
are direct descendents of the 
plantation bosses. Ruth and 
her brother are alienated 
Southerners. Annabel is the 
place itself, which can be 
redeemed or destroyed. 

As a first play (launched in 
Atlanta and going on -to 
Boston and Broadway) Lonely 
Street has some of the usual 
trademarks of cautious natu- 
ralism. it also shows a writer 
fully in command of her 
characters, capable of organiz- 
ing an elaborate dynastic plot 
and of manipulating both into 


comic situations while keep- 
ing a main argument on the 
rails. 

By for the most interesting 
figure, Annabel (true to her 
origin in Edgar Allan Poe) 
contains two characters: her 
domestic self and a dream 
companion drawn from the 
Song of Solomon. And Gaire 
Benedict's performance richly 


projects both: at once a frail, 
stiff old lady, erupting into 
full-throated biblical cadences 
when possessed by her alter 
ego. 

The siblings stimulate a 
lively, sharp-edged partner- 
ship from Gayle Hunnicutt 
and Brian Protheroe. perform- 
ing a guarded and gradually- 
accelerating courtship dance. 
King and his pregnant belle 
are accurately targeted by Lou 
Hirsch and Caroline Bliss.

Were il not for extraordinary, 
radical pioneere like James 
Tytler. daily activities such as 
reading this newspaper would 
be unthinkable. Tytler 
sometime musician, math- 
ematician. writer., surgeon, 
chemist, mechanic and single- 
handed editor of the Encyclo- 
paedia Briuanica - also found 
lime to build his own printing 
press. 


Most importantly though, 
he was the first man in Britain 
to fly. Andrew Dallraeyer’s 


new play excavates this feet

construction and release of a 
hot air balloon (impressively 
realistic) in Edinburgh's plea-

both a very concrete sense of 
spectacle and an arena 
through which a scornful 
cross-section of Edinburgh 
citizens can wander (still rec-

Hodgart’s production points 
out. by sometimes positioning 
characters round the audi- 
torium). and enables 
Dallmeyer to show the forces 
propelling invention and 
rebellion conflicting with 
those of restriction. 

The structure proves lim- 
ited: the entire story has to be 
told through two dramatic 
incidents - his two attempts 
to fly - and all other elements 
of Tyiler's life are woven in 
through exposition. The play 
soon acquires a rather monot-

Most trades have their jour- 
nals; the' book trade has' an 
"Oigan". Ii is called The 
Bookseller. but is more about 
publishing than bookselling, 
and is compulsory reading for 
publishers, booksellers and 
librarians. 

It is owned and published 
by Whitakers, described by 
Anthony Blond in his The 
Book Book as an "enormously 
rich femily firm". It probably 
is. since over three years it has 
made a seven-figure loss in 
buying and selling a book., 
wholesalers —or else Anthony 
has been impressed by the 
Rolls-Royce in which the - 
father of the present chairman 
used to arrive for work. 

The Bookseller (circulation: 
20.000) was founded by Jo- 
seph Whitaker in 1 858 and for 
long after edited by a member 
of the femily. Whitakers also 
publish the main trade biblio- 
graphical tools and, of course. 
Whitaker's Almanack. • 

The first non-femily editor 
was a man called Edmond 
Segrave: clever, waspish. An- 
glo-Catholic and an intended 
priest, he sat in the chair for 30 
years and had an equal num- 
ber of close enemies and close 
friends. He had previously 
been sacked by Hememanns 
for an unspecified reason de- 
spite having once had his 
salary doubled for being the 
only person to notice that 
Fleur, Soames Forsythe's 
child, had changed gender 
from one instalment of the 
Saga to the next. 

Segrave retired in 1962 and 
was succeeded'by his amiable 
assistant. Philoihea Thomp- 
son. When Miss Thompson 
left. Haddon's sou, David, 
became editor and not long 
after succeeded his father as 
chairman. David — taciturn, 
slow to smile and speak — 
brought in an astute South 
African journalist. Louis 
Baum, to take over the 
editor’s chair, but continued 
to be the principal influence 
on the papers tone and policy. 

The Whitakers . - are 
paternalistic employers. They 
know best; they have sian- 


r. PUBLISHING 


dards and IFie magazine re-" 
fleets them. Their success in 
doing this is the more surpris- 
ing in that Louis Baum has his 
own little coierie - which 
includes departing Cape Edi- 
torial Director. Liz Calder. 
and Matthew Evans, Faber 
supremo — who are all for 
livening up the paper but are 
mainly seen in the gossip 
column. Horace Bent's Diary. 

. The Bookseller has always 
delighted in anonymous 
correspondents and. Beni 
apart. '■ the other one that 
manages to get under critics' 
and editors' skins is Quentin 
Oates (according to Frank 
Delaney this is Philip How- 
ard. according to Philip How- 
ard this is Michael Geare, 
according -.to Michael Geare 
this is Frank Delaney). Oates 
reviews the reviews, pitting 
John Carey against Mania 
Amis or Bernard Levin 
against George Steiner.Neariy 
all of the rest is record and 
straight reportage of con- 
ferences, reports and papers. 

But. we learn, change for the 
Organ itself is at hand. From 
Christmas onwards there will 
be a new formal and design. 
The price of each issue will 
rise by 20 per cent advertise- 
ment rates by much more. 
Most jobs in publishing and 
bookselling, except those at 
the very top. are advertised in 
The Bookseller. That is where 
the young and hopeful keep an 
eye open for their future 
careers. 

The Bookseller, too. is 
where Australia and New 
Zealand read whole page ads 
for future books and are 
influenced to order them. 

So the major changes her- 
alded by Whitakers are aimed 
to show the young that they 
too are on the ball. 1 suspect, 
however, it will be largely the 
mixture of before with a dash 
or two of extra colour. After 
all the Whitaker tradition — 
ap'd 1 family — is still in charge.

The Place 


DANCE 


It is not enough to be a gpog 
dancer. Without the nght 
material, - to petfonB^even- 
someone as gifted as Maedee 
Dupres can make herself look 
silly, clumsy and inept as she 
proved in her programme for 
Dance. Umbrella on Saturday. *. 

She was giving two new • 
pieces, / Owe You the Earth. 
with choreography by Arianna 
Economou, caused a lot of 
giggles among the audience, 
but I fear it was not meant to 
be funny. The programme 
note for- said that it repre* 
sented some thoughts arising 
from the Idea of a journey;-! ■ 
suspect an underlying allegory 
about the plight of wimmin. 

Duprs walked around with a 
lighted candle, used a broom 
as a punt pole- or an oar, 
wrestled with her overcoat 
knocked over a chair, hid in a 
plastic bag. repeatedly 
plunged her race info a small 
bowl of water, and finally 
scattered sand or salt from a 
small case she had been 
carrying, Meanwhile she mut- 


tered. crooned- or -shouted i 
.saaps^pf unrelated phrases. 

- T '-remember Merce 
Cunningham. 20 years ago,

nowhere. * 


About the other work 
Dupres gave. La Divina. 
words foil me. It purported to 
be part homage, part bio- 
graphical comment'- about 
.Maria Callas, but the trashy 
farrago 1 of posturing and 
prancing arranged by Kate 
Flau seemed an insult to the 
singer’s memory, the dancer’s 
ability and the audience's 
intelligence. 

I was inclined to feel sorry 
for Dupres, saddled with such 
a nonsense programme, but 
was reminded that she chose 
to appear in iL She ought to 
know better.

Goodbye to the golden days 


•The City has acqmred a whrfe 
new language in the nm-optothe

words and their meanings: 
Qaat Walt an invisible bamer 
erected between two departments 
of the same company intendedto

Golden Handshake. A tampn

ISoIdeji^KfF unlocks the Golden 
Handcuffs - pays off people who 
are found not to be worth keeping. 


In two weeks’ time 
the Stock Exchange 
faces the biggest 
shake-up in its 
history. Beginning a 
three-part series, 
Bryan Appfeyard 
examines the impact 
and charts the 
origins of change 

Part 1: All change 

T he City is the square mile 
of London which ex- 
tends along the banks of 
the Thames from Tower 
Hill in the east to the 
Temple in the west and north to 
Smithfield and Liverpool Street. 
Its buildings are bigger, the streets 
cleaner and the sandwich bars 
slicker than in the West End. But 
down curious alleys still lurk, 
restaurants with bizarre customs, 
and pubs where people eat huge 
plates of shepherd's pie topped 
with a jumbo sausage, while 
jobbers weep into their beer. 

In these narrow passageways lie 
the last vestiges of the City's 
medieval legacy. Most of the 
wooden Gty was wiped out in the 
Great Fire of 1666, to be replaced 
by the stone baroque which domi- 
nates today. But an older, darker 
age still surfaces in the street plan. 

Until the 1980s, however, it was 
the Victorian and Edwardian era 
that ruled the area. It was then that 
the City became the centre of the 
financial and economic world. 
Global trade and capital flows 
were regulated through London. 
With the captive market of an 
empire and the dominance of the 
seas; the Gty was unchallenged. It 
developed an arrogance, a mys- 
tique and a snobbery to deter 
outsiders. 

In effect, that arrogance pro- 
tected it through world wars. 
Labour governments and the de- 
cline of Britain. But in 1979 it 
became dear that the bluff was 
about to be called. For the Gty 
had been everything English, with 
its chop houses, fish restaurants, 
careful class distinction, but. most 
of all, with its quite stupefying 
degree of hypocrisy. 

The Gty believed in free trade, 
in open markets, in unfettered 
capitalism — for everybody except 
itself! In tbe past. Conservative 
governments had virtually gone 
along with this. Restrictive prao-

tices that would have made even 
the most regressive union baron 
flinch were tolerated, as they 
seemed quite good for the country 
and, besides, the City held the 
pursestrings. 

. But in 1976, Shiriey Williams 
had extended the power of the 
Office of Fair Trading to include 
■service industries and, two years 
later, it had begun to take an 
interest in the Stock Exchange's 
rule book. Finally, the 1979 
Thatcher government turned out 
less keen than its predecessors to 
protea ancient privileges. 

The Stock Exchange was on the 
skids. Nobody doubted that its 
rule book infringed both the spirit 
and the letter of the fair trading 
legislation. And, in the end. they 
were kept out of court only by a 
deal that accepted they could not 
win. Nicholas Goodison, the 
chairman of the Stock Exchange, 
and Cedi Parkinson, then Sec- 
retary of State for Trade and 
Industry, agreed they would not go 
to court but ' that the Stock 
Exchange had to implement all the 


rhang es that would have been 
forced on it in any case. 

Those changes have come to be 
known as The Big Bang and come 
into effect on October 27. Along 
with the vast range of associated 
changes that have taken place in 
the City, they represent the most 
radjeai and shattering transforma- 
tion ever experienced by our- 
financial community. They will 
affect everything from the way 
they dress in tbe City, to the style 
of the buildings and to the way we 
invest our money. Nobody will be 
untouched by the explosion. 

I n the old Stock Exchange 
rule book, traders in com- 
pany shares and Govern- 
ment securities (gilts) were 
split into brokers and job- 
bers. Brokers took orders to buy or 
sell from their diems. They then 
went to a jobber on the Stock 
Exchange floor and asked for his 
price, without disclosing whether 
they were buying or selling. The 
jobber quoted two prices — the 
lower one for buying and the 


•“Well actually,” said one 
banker, “a Porsche is a remark- 
ably cheap way of beeping some- 
body happy." 

But die word “cheap" Is relative. 
Salaries in die Gty axe now 
staggering. In the spate of pre- 
Bang mergers and takeovers in 
1984-5, experienced dealers be- 
came worth their weight-in gold. 
Tbe new groups tried, wisely, to 
pay most of their money in profit- 
related bonuses, so they trill not be 
tied forever to the astronomical 


PAY AND PERKS 


figures they are paying out now. 
Nevertheless, the dealers, being 
dealers, did manage to negotiate 
guaranteed bonnses for the first 
two years. 

The system for the best dealers 
is to pay them a basic salary, say 
£50,000. Any investment bouse 
would expea a good dealer to 
bring in a gross income of five 
times his salary, and a great one to 


higher for selling. Tbe broker 
would find the most favourable 
price and execute the deaL 

Brokers made their money on 
commissions on each deal and the 
jobbers profited on their “spread” 
— the difference between their 
buying and selling prices. The 
client hoped to profit from gains 
in the share price. Membership of 
the Stock Exchange was strictly 
controlled and brokers' commis- 
sions were fixed on a sliding scale 
related to the size of each deal The 
typical small investor would pay 
1.65 per cent oh tbe first £7.000 of 
a deaL 

The system was antiquated, 
outrageously unfair and, for its 
members, a licence to print 


money. “If” commented one of 
the new Big Bang bankers, “tbe 
general public had ever found out 
how much partners in stock- 
broking firms were taking home 
every week, there would have been 
a Big Bang 10 years ago.” 

Since both brokers and jobbers 
could make money when the 
market was rising (a bull market) 
or when it was falling (a bear 
market) and since all of them 
operated a spectacular and largely 
hidden profits-reiated bonus sys- 
tem, the living was distinctly easy. 
Annual incomes running into 
several millions were not • 
uncommon. 

The Big Bang proper is the 
moment when aU this is thrown 


out of the window. Market makers 
and agents no longer have to be 
separated. Membership of the 
Stock Exchange is thrown open 
both to foreigners and outsiders 
and commission rates are flexible 
— brokers will have to compete on 
the price they charge to investors. 

B lowing the Stock Ex- 
change sky-high may 
seem enough for one 
decade, but that is only 
part of the story. For. 
over the past 25 years, the Gty has 
managed to grab almost the whole 
of the biggest market the world has 
ever seen. 

This is the Euromarket, now 
more properly known as the 


Marzipan Boys: the takeover of the 
old City firms resulted fa- 
payouts to partners. But the laye» 
beneath the partners - those » h® 
actually knew how to make tbe 
money - demanded a slice of the

bring in seven times. If he suc- 
ceeds, he may earn a 100 per cent 
boons. So for £100.000. pins 
employment costs of around 
£25,000, the investment boose 
receives a gross income of 
£350,000- 

Bnt those figures are just av- 
erage. A three-man dealing team 
can bring in a gros s income of 
“quite a few millions," with in- 
dividual dealers frequently earning 
as orach as £300,000-£500,000 a 
year. 


International Capitol Market 
Money ai this level becomes an 
abstrartion. Last wart Stock 
change turnover of S467 billion 
may seem a lot but in the same 

S eriod. Eurobond turnover was 
125 trillion and the Euro- 
currency deposit market turned 
over $2.75 trillion. This is what 
Labour politicians used quaintly 
to call “hot” money because it 
moved quickly — tail today all 
money is hot and it all moves- 
quickly. . 

The creation or the 
Euromarkets began after the Sec- 
ond World War when the Ameri- 
cans were running a huge balance 
of payments deficit It was said 
that they were buying up the 
world, which was not far from the 
truth. Their economy had grown 
in the war while Europe's had been 
vaporized. 

The deficit meant that dollar; 
held by non-Americans were 
appearing everywhere. In the early 
Sixties, the movement of these 
dollars turned into a systematic 
market Some say it was created by 
the legendary Sir Sigmund “Srggy 
Warburg, others that the Moscow 
Narodny Bank found it had issued 
a Eurobond by accident Either 
way. it meant that the banks bad 
found ways of soaking up the 
dollars arid turning them into 
interest-bearing, tradable paper. 

Today. President Reagan is in 
the deficit business again, export- 
ing dollars in vast quantities. 
Meanwhile the Japanese, op- 
erators of the second biggest 
economy in the world, are running 
a huge surplus, and the mountains 
of Yen held in Japanese hands are 
flooding on to the capital markets. 
So. even if Reagan or his successor 
decided to control the deficit, or if; 
the dollar declined seriously - as 
many now think is likely — the 
capital flows would continue. 

Fora variety of reasons relating 
to tax, the law and our position 
between tbe two time zones of the - 
United, States and the Far East. 
London became the undisputed 
centre of this market. Had tills not 
happened, the Gty and its quaint 
institutions would have embarked 
on a long period of decline as a 
financial centre. Our domestic 
capital markets, now accounting 
for only around 8 per cent of the 
world's total would have drifted 
into insignificance. But with the 
Euromarkets in our pocket, no- 
body could by-pass the City.

The Afghan samurai 


His name is heard in the 
bazaars of the north-west fron- 
tier. Among the fierce tribes- 
men of Afghanistan, who have 
been waging a bitter seven- 
year war of attrition against. 
Russian invaders, his fighting 
prowess has become legend. 
He is Koshiro Tanaka, a 47- 
year-old former karate 
mslruaor from Tokyo, who 
has declared his own personal 
Jihad against communism. 

“I wish we had more 
Mujahideen like him.” said 
Jan Agha. a senior rebel 
commander in the Jagdalak 
Valley, a Mujahideen (holy 
warrior) stronghold 35 miles 
east of the Afghan capital 
Kabul “He is one of the best 
fighters we have.” 

I first heard of Tanaka in a 
carpet market in Peshawar, 
the north-west frontier town 
made famous by Kipling's 
stories. His was a name I was 
to hear many times again as 1 . 
searched for a rebel group 
which would escort me into 
Afghanistan. 

By all accounts he was a 
disciplined, self-contained 
man. A man of few words who 
donned a track suit and the

he went into battle. When I 
met the strange, enigmatic 
"ferringi” (foreigner) he was 
all I had imagined: the very 
embodiment of the Samurai 
warrior of lore 

“All I want to do is fight, 
fight every day. We must stop 
the spread of communism 
otherwise the Russians will 
continue to invade weaker 
countries like Afghanistan,” 
he said in slow but clearly 
enunciated English. 

“I cannot understand Islam. 
It is very, very difficult for me. 
But I ant most impressed by

the Mujahideen's courage. 
They never asked for this war. 
They are fighting for their 
freedom and liberation.” 

Tanaka first arrived in 
Jagdalak in 19S4; he had 
convinced leaders of the 
Jammiai-Mslami (the Islamic 
Society) rebel group that he 
wished to join the 500 
Mujahideen who are based in 
the valley. • 

Twice married and with five 
children, he found the scep- 
ticism and opposition of his 
family harder to overcome. 

“My family and my friends 
don't like me being out here. 
They tried to stop me coming 
to Afghanistan but nothing 
they could do or say made any 
difference,” he said. 

Tanaka has undertaken six 
tours of duty in the Jagdalak 
Valley, which has been de- 
populated by savage Soviet 
aerial bombardment. 

When not raiding Russian 
outposts which guard the 
electricity lines to Kabul or 
ambushing convoys on the 
strategic Kabul to Jallaiabad 
highway, he often wanders off 
alone to scout Jagdaiak's ter- 
rain. a lunar-like landscape of 
arid, forbidden hills. river 
beds and narrow rocky trails. 

He exudes an aura of invin- 
cibility and Jagdaiak's 
Mujahideen, as superstitious 
as the rest of their country- 
men. are happy to have him as 
their talisman. Through him 
their feme spreads and such 
vainglory is an essential pan 
of Afghan life. 

“Next year I am 47 so I will 
npl be able to move -so fast.” 
he said. “I can only give the 
Mujahideen about one or two 
years more. The problem is 
not only an Afghan problem, 
it is one for all the free world.” 

It IS sentiments and actions 
like these that have helped 
make Koshiro Tanaka some- 
thing of a legend. Or at least, 
as one fellow guerrilla put it: 
“A one-man army.”

P arents are always the sub- 
ject of much discussion. 
Should or shouldn’t they 
have children? Do they 
know anything about them? Are 
they the best people to look after 
them, or would children be better 
off in other hands? People who are 
not themselves parents, elderly 
aunts, friends of the family, 
schoolteachers and so forth, have 
no doubt at all about the answer to 
this question. Teachers, indeed, 
often feel that parents are not only 
no use, but positively dangerous. 
Even children, in this free age, are 
sometimes dissatisfied with their 
fathers and mothers, and parents 
are seldom quite contented with 
their sons and daughters. 

Being a parent at all is a gamble. 
Many parents are disappointed in 
their children. Where they hoped 
for curly hair and dimples, they get 
wiry lodes and angles. Where they 
would welcome obedience, gentle- 
ness and pretty behaviour, they get 
uproar and squalls and a hatred of 
washing. By this time everyone’s 
ancestry has got a bit mixed and 
no one can count on the appear- 


ance or character, of their off- 
spring. Arrogance, greed and 
dullness, which no parents can 
accoum for, may exhibit them- 
selves veiy early in the young. 
Little Isabel may have Aunt 
Anne’s small round eyes and 
tendency to rudeness; little George 
may display the least endearing 
traits of Uncle Albert, although 
these relatives have never been 
near the bouse: It is to the parents’ 
credit that they make the best of 
such trials. 

Mothers hitherto have had most 
to do with the children, and yet 
how seldom can they guarantee 
that a child win always be perfect 
in health, looks and conduct 
Nowadays mothers are more and 
more inclined to leave the moral 
and mental improvement of the 
family in the hands of specialists, 
while they improve their tennis 
and other games. Too few of them 
have fully realized that in order to 


Katrsflon by 8*»n lor tfw origtatf article 


halve the worry and double the 
pleasure — if any — of children, the 
co-operation of the elusive father 
should be sought and, indeed, 
insisted upon. 

Fathers seldom see anything of 
their children except at bedtime 
and in the holidays. The father's 
influence in most homes is con- 
fined to a few brief hours of play, 
during which time he makes 
himself the more popular parent 
by overlooking lapses of all kinds 
and so undoing the lessons pa- 
tiently taught by the mother. She 
should demand that the father 
take a home course at least once a 
year, during which time he should 
be constantly with his offspring, 
seeing them through the fractious 
days of convalescence after mea- 
sles. keeping order at table: Thus 
the male parent might realize with 


something of a shock that his little 
ones did not spend the entire time 
trailing clouds of glory and mak- 
ing naive and delicious remarks. 
Occasionally children say a naive, 
literal or logical thing that is very 
charming — but bow many things 
they say that are utter nonsense. 

F athers forced into unusual 
and prolonged intimacy 
with their nurseries, and 
anxious to add to their 
repertoire of quotations from 
Pamela and PetCT, are quick to 
find this out. and they are some- 
times unfairly annoyed about it. 
Shocked at finding themselves 
bored, they take to shopping and 
buy all the toys that they covet for 
themselves. Frequent presents 
seem to these misguided men ihe 
only way to keep things quiet and 


happy in the nursery. 
The immediate effect is 
satisfactory, but chil- 
dren who are “made 
happy" by too much 
indulgence and con- 
stant presents, are 
noticeably anti-social 
and selfish when they 
meet other children and 
can't have tilings all 
their own way. This is 
in a great measure the defect of the 
Montessori child or. one should 
more justly say. of the child whose 
mother has grasped, more or less, 
a few Montessori principles. Most 
mothers of young children have 
done this with the result that home 
life is freer and livelier than it used 
to be. One young mother rather 
nervously described herself as 
following “the Montorosso system 
or something, because everybody 
does it where I live”. It not ill 
expresses the jumble of ideas 
(often opposed to each other) that 
are tried on the post-war child. 

For example. Richard, aged 
three, is the child of “Monto- 
rosso” parents. They will go 
nowhere without him; they will 
deny him nothing for fear — as 
the^' explain — of rousing in his 
three-year-old breast feelings of 
injury and resentment which they 
would have no means of allaying. 

Between Richard and a com- 
mon or garden “spoilt brat" there 
is little difference to be discerned. 
Richard clamours for a slab of 
pink coconut sugar, in the high 
street, at 1 1 in the morning and. 
lest his little subconscious be 
irreparably damaged, his father 
rushes in to a grubby little shop to 
buy it for him. Richard wants an 
the toys at his own party and the 


other children are urged to give 
them up. for the good of their 
characters. Richard does not want 
his bath, or wants to blow a;: 
trumpet at six in the morning, or - 
sits in a puddle. 

I t is characteristic of earnest 
“Montorosso" mothers that 
they are quite, careless of the- 
rights or inhibitions of othec 
infants. They hope that Richard- 
will never blame them for any-l 
thing, but it is more than likely* 
that the feelings of injury anal 
resentment may be retroactive." 
when the grown man finds that he" 
can’t have everything he calls for, 
and has a digestion ruined by- 
coconut bars. 

Are parents in general, then, any 
use? They never learn from experi- 
ence — or. at least, they never leant 
much — and they have no fixed" 
standard at which to aim. They 
invariably inspire in their children 
a determination to bring up the 
next generation quite differently.- 
And yet. there is no getting over 
the fact, children like their parents 
almost always and overlook their 
failures. 

But if the component parts are 
so unsatisfactory, why trouble to_ 
preserve this particular social" 
group? The answer is that al- 
though apart these single members 
are only tolerable, lei them but 
fuse into that unit which we calh 
the family and we have at once 
something irresistibly charming 
and precious. There is nothing else 
quite like the warmth and gaiety of; 
a real family. Their jokes, their 
squabbles, their way’s and cus- 
toms. have a quality that is at least 
as old as the race, and something 
in each of us responds to it. 


Sue Townsend was getting 
ready for her nine year old 
daughter's birthday party 
when she realised that she was 
going to have a heart attack. 

Cl £!_' ! I _ : 



did myself up," she says, “best 
knickers and all that. And I 
smoked a cigarette on the way 
because I knew it would be my 
last one for ages.” 

At the hospital her doctor 
told her “You are. at this 
moment, having a heart 
attack," as she was rushed into 
intensive care. 

“The pains were bad but I 
wasn't frightened at all at that 
point” she says. It was-ozriy 
£ when a well- meaning theatre ' 
assistant squeezed her hand, 
as the doctors were working 
on her heart, and moaned: 
“What must you be thinking 
now? How awful for you," 
that Townsend cracked. 

“I thought ‘My God! She’s 
telling me .I'm going to die' 
and I immediately feft very ill 
and panicky.” 

On lop of it alL she was 
worried about her daughter's 
party guests whom she was 
meant to be looking after. In 
the end. her doctor left her 
bedside to go round to her 
house, gave the little girls their 
tea and saw that they got home 
safely. 

It is typical of the creator of 
m the lugubrious, soul searching 
schoolboy. Adrian Mole, that 
the whole experience is re- 
called with the same whim- 
sical mixture of farce and 
tragedy with which she views 
the world. 

Even so. the heart attack 
last March, following the 
discovery that she is diabetic, 
has persuaded 40 year old 
Townsend to take her own 
well being, at least, a little 
more seriously. 

“I’d been having these pains 
in my chest for ages but I was 
too busy to do anything about 
it." she admits. “Fd actually 
said to a friend *1 think I'm 
having a heart attack’ and we

She had. she confesses, be- 
come something of a worka- 
holic without realising it as a 
result of the success of her two 
Adrian Mole books. “I did 
everything anyone asked me 
to do," she says. “I suppose 
it’s a form of msecurity. but 
Fvc never been able to say 
‘No’.” But she has improved

since her heart attack and now 
insists on sleeping on any 
proposal, usually before turn- 
ing it down. 

She has also lost weight, 
began taking exercise and cut 
down her smoking — anything 
up to 60 a day in the past “I'd 
become very boringand didn't 
go out much. I just worked. 
Now 1 really do feel regen- 
erated. I've started to live 
during the day as weB as work, 
and l think I've become a bit 
braver, too. It's quite a good 
thing to come near to death. 
Tm not going to go on about 


priorities but you do think ‘my 
God. you came near to it that 
time, girl’." 

It is four years since her 
acned brain-child first ap- 
peared in prim in The Secret 
Diary of Adrian Mole Aged 
13 K. Such was Adrian’s ap- 
peal that Townsend produced 
a sequel — The Growing Pains 
of Adrian Mole — the follow- 
ing year. Between them, the 
two books have now sold a 
remarkable 5 million copies in 
the English language edition 
alone. 

They have been turned into 
an international stage play and 
television series and trans- 
lated into 16 languages includ- 
ing Russian and last Thursday 
a boxed version of the paper- 
backs. The Complete Adrian 
Mole , went on sale. 

After finishing the second 
book, she vowed to put Adrian 
on ice until 1992 when he will 
be 26. despite pressure from 
her publisher and the public 
One man wrote; “If you don’t 
write a third Mole. I will, and 
you can take me to court. At 
least m be happy in prison!” 


Townsend says: "There’s 
something almost distasteful 
about it because I know it 
would sell and I would feel I 
was cashing in on it It's an 
easy thing for me to do now 
and I just want to do some- 
thing different" 

What she is doing is writing 
a book about Britain's new

sees as the victims of the 
Thaicherite economic policy,

commissioned to write two 
plays, one of them for the 
National Theatre. 

The eldest of three daugh- 
ters of parents who were both 
bus conductors, she grew up in 
Leicester — not far from the 
restored vicarage where she 
now lives with her husband, 
Colin, their daughter and two 
of Sue’s three children by her 
first marriage. Her 21 -year-old 


son is at university doing a 
honours degree in English and 
Politics — something his 
mother would have dearly 
loved to have done 

Instead she had babies, and 
a variety of jobs. But it was 
while she was working in a 
youth club that she discovered 
the inspiration for Adrian 
Mole. 

“The kids used to talk in 
front of me as if I wasn't there, 
saying things like ‘I can't live 
without her. Nigel’ or ‘My 
heart's breaking?. And all of 
them used to be Very worried 
about their mothers.” 

She is pleased , at the 
comparative riches that her 
books' have brought her. And 
there is also a limited amount 
of strictly monitored Mole 
merchandise. “He is. to a 
certain extent, a small 
business,” says Townsend. 
“Mrs Thatcher would be 
proud of him." 

Never having had any 
money in the past she had to 
ask her accountant to send her 
a “stiff letter” which is kept in 
her cash book. Anything she 
spends over a certain amount 
has to be passed by him first. 
She also has to let him know 
when she gives money away —

Blonde heirs to every throne 


Once upon a time blondes 
meant Bardot Barbie dolls 
and barmaids. Now they mean 
Mrs Thatcher, Brenda Dean 
and — a recent recruit — 
Gfcoys Kinnock, who ap- 
peared at the La bom Party 
conference radiant with pale 
primrose highlights. Blendes 
have gone from Dumb to

I preferred it when blondes 
were what gentlemen pre-

there is no need to ekerduz la

Will we non-blondes have to

that it is someone rise’s job to

Theseare anlflcdy scenarios 
Since, if these wicket ladies 
had originally been blondes, 
they would have been forgiven 
everything from regicide to

Aids: a task for the churches 


The lime has come for Christians 
to arrive ai a more considered 
attitude towards Aids. It is plainly 
a serious issue; neither the disease 
itself nor its fearful effects for 
human society are going to go 
away. Because the virus has been 
spread, at least until now. largely 
by two means - drug addiction 
and certain homosexual practices 
— ordinary reaction to its victims 
has generally been characterized 
by moral reprobation. Both prac- 
tices prompt widespread revul- 
sion. The disease is almost unique 
in modem society in attracting the 
kind of moral censoriousness that 
was once common in popular 
attitudes to “unclean" afflictions. 
The victims of Aids are contem- 
porary lepers. 

Some Christians, conscious of 
the seriousness of the disease, 
have felt almost instinctively for 
an enlightened response but have 
somehow failed to express a moral 
coherence. Mon, however, have - 
at various levels of awareness — 
condemned the victims of the 
disease for two related reasons 
that are thought of as resting upon 
a religious and moral basis. 

Aids has been seen, first, as the 
consequence of personal sin. It is 
the plague sent by God himself to 
punish those guilty of breaking 
moral laws laid down with consid- 
erable unambiguity in the Bible. 
Secondly, the disease is a collec- 
tive judgement on general social 
trends, a providential warning 
against a whole set of dispositions 
sometimes described as “the 
permissive society". Neither of 
these positions rests upon very 
secure Christian foundations. 

Compared with some of the 
things commonly done by human 
beings to one another in our 
modem world - political murder, 
social selfishness, personal cruel- 
ties — sexual activity between 
homosexuals will scarcely seem of 
such grievousness as uniquely to 
have elicited from the Divine the 
dreadful affliction of Aids. If it is 


condemned in the Bible, further- 
more. so are a range of sexual and 
other practices, such as inter- 
course outside marriage and di- 
vorce. whose frequency and social 
acceptability are now often un- 
questioned. 

It is. again, difficult to see why 
relations between sexually active 
homosexuals should be regarded 
with such additional moral horror 
as to place them in a potentially 
special relationship to divine 
retribution. In Christianity all 
men and women are suffused in 
sin. Indeed, the whole point of 
Christ's entry into our world of 
sorrow was to impart the free gift 
of forgiveness. The Christian mes- 
sage becomes unintelligible unless 
the priority of human sin is 
recognized- It leaks from our 
beings at virtually every moment 
of life it covers the earth with 
desolation and great suffering. By 
his own confession, Jesus came 
into the world to save not the 
righteous, but sinners. He did not 
come to threaten them with 
appalling diseases. 

The notion of a collective 
punishment of human society is 
more consistent with Scripture, 
but is still not an appropriate 
response. The Bible has many 
examples of whole societies suffer- 
ing ultimate punishments for 
moral wrongdoing, of which the 
most notorious, in the present 
context, happened at Sodom. Con- 
fronted with the immediate dis- 
solution of familiar communal 
securities, in the way societies 
have always been in times of 
plague, it is human enough to ask 
“Why should this happen to us?" 

It is not a very proper question. 
Mankind has no reasonable claim 
on the son of expectations of 
happiness and security which the 
question presupposes. Tf plague is 
a punishment of society for its 
wrongdoing, then it is a punish- 
ment of society collectively, and 
not of some particular group- That 
much may indeed be inferred 



Edward Norman nrges 
Christians to reject 


the view that victims 


of the disease are 


being divinely pnnished 
for their sins 


from Scripture; But since all 
human societies are given over to 
sin it would be hazardous to 
identify particular “natural" aff- 
lictions as directed by God at 
selected dimensions of human 
moral frailty. 

When the cholera epidemics 
occurred in mid-Victorian Britain 
numerous sages of Christianity 
rushed to identify them as the 
agency of God's wrath. But they 
were wrong, and their successors 
are wrong today. When I used to 
work in a hospital as a chaplain, 
the first thing I learned was that 
illness is illness; it is the convey- 
ance of no moral injunction, no 
spiritual vengeance. The moral 
and the wise will, of course, seek to 
discern in the shock to their 
sensibilities some advance to 
greater spiritual insights; to grow 
through suffering, either their own 
or experienced vicariously for 
society, to more subtle and mature 
purchases on the meanings behind 
the mechanics of the creation. 

These last are of enormous 
importance for a proper under- 


standing of the impending Aids 
crisis. There is a growing Christian 
agnosticism about the "evils’* of 
“natural" disasters — earthquakes, 
famines, diseases. But there are in 
a properly ordered religious view 
of the world, no “evils of this 
sort. The fault derives _ from 
separating men from their ele- 
ment: nature. God’s creation is 
real and concrete. He made the 
world with material form and 
design, and — the authentic mir- 
acle of religion — he lifted men 
from the unconsciousness of the 
busy and ephemeral mass offiving 
things and gave them the gift of 
reason and reflection. 

They were admitted, m that 
sense, to participation with God in 
the development of the creation. 
Their status as created beings was 
unchanged, however. Just as 
Christ did not bring men perfec- 
tion, but forgiveness, so God in 
the creation gave men self- 
consciousness but not freedom 
from nature. We are now able to 
measure and to quantify the 
matter of our habitat The abilities 
we have evolved with the gifts 
God imparted have enabled ns to 
engage nature in a fruitful ex- 
change whose results include the 
healing of the sick by medical skill 
the better distribution of material 
resources by social understanding, 
the more sensitive treatment of 
those who are different from 
ourselves in cultural assumptions. 

Yet we are still unavoidably a 
pan of the natural order, and it is 
an order of living things, micro- 
scopic and larger, which sustain 
themselves by mutual absorption. 
Disease is what happens when 
living things within ourselves 
multiply in the wrong place — 
wrong, that is. because not pro- 
grammed to a “normal" pattern; it 
is what happens when our bodies 
are successfully infiltrated by 
other living things from outside. 

Aids is a disease like any other, 
in the sense that it is an evolution 
from the chaotic living mass that 


coats the globe and of which we 
are a pan. God calls us to reflect 
upon that reality, to recognize the 
horror of our dilemma as crea- 
tures lifted to divine choices yet 
incapable, through felse expecta- 
tions of a “perfect" contentment, 
of converting that horror into joy. 
Christians believe that Christ 
came into the world to confirm 
that matter was real; that the way 
reality works is God's scheme of 
things, and that the sorrows and 
imperfections of life are of our 
qwd contrivance. For God became 
matter himself 

The time has come for Chris- 
tians not only to ask themselves 
exactly what the appearance of 
Aids means, but also to do 
something to demonstrate their 
sense of brotherhood with those 
afflicted. By this I do not mean a 
heavy and perhaps condescending 
release of “compassion”, but sen- 
sible and practical work, and the 
cultivation of a balanced relation- 
ship within the fellowship of sin 
which is human society. 

I also think it would be helpful if 
a part-time interdenominational 
society of Christian ministers and 
priests could be established, its 
members pledged to visit Aids 
victims and oner what practical 
and religious help they can. Be- 
cause of the confidential nature of 
individual cases they would have 
to operate in cooperation with 
existing support groups. To be 
most effective the members of 
such a society should not, at 
present, be drawn from those 
groups most at risk of acquiring 
the disease. But they should put 
themselves at the service of the 
victims, as Christ gave himself 
unsparingly to the afflicted. He 
was accused of resorting to the 
company of outcasts — the ritually 
unclean, the lepers, the sinners. 
His contemporary representatives 
could follow his example.

Bernard Levin: the way we live now 


When only the ultimate will do 


I have always maintained that 
salutations are due. and properly 
given, to anyone who can do 
anything better than anyone else. 
There is a man in Switzerland who 
cuts pieces of paper into fantastic 
and beautiftil shapes by folding 
them cunningly first then plying 
the scissors in an apparently 
random manner. We all did this, 
or tried to. as children, but the 
good Switzer has turned it into a 
real art, and it is hardly likely that 
he will find a challenger to topple 
him from his recondite pinnacle. 

In a different field altogether, 
the late Arne Tollefeon took the 
humblest and least regarded of 
musical instruments, the ac- 
cordion, and played ft so finely 
and expressively that he per- 
suaded serious composers to write 
for iL And I have told before the 
story of the man so skilled at 
parachute jumping that he once 
jumped out of an aeroplane 
without one, having thoughtfully 
arranged to collect one from a 
passing colleague holding a spare. 

These feats betoken respectively 
a unique skill in manual dexterity 
combined with a remarkable eye 
for shape, a musical gift so refined 
that its possessor could conjure 
sweet sounds from an instrument 
thought incapable of making 
them, and an alliance of courage 
with presence of mind that makes 
most of us, when we merely 
contemplate it. clammy-palmed 
and dry of mouth. 

There is an obvious distinction 
here between these outstanding 
achievements and those of the 
delightful fellow (I met him once) 
who got into the Guinness Book of 
Records by balancing 1 1 of the old 
12-sided threepenny-bits on edge, 
each standing on its predecessor. 
This was something that, given a 
steady enough hand and sufficient 
patience, anybody might da 
whereas my three heroes must 
have had some innate quality that 
others lack. But there is an equally 
real yet less obvious difference 
separating the trio from champion 
athletes. The highest jumper, or 
foster miler. in the world is only a 



bar’s thickness or a tape's breadth 
ahead of the runner-up, and he 
knows that in a year or two 
someone will have broken his 
record, who in turn will see his 
own surpassed. In other words, a 
champion athlete is not unique, 
but the Swiss, the musician and 
the madman all are. 

And here comes another. His 
name (not easily forgotten) is 
David Schummy. and he is the 
greatest boomerang thrower in the 
world. (You may wonder — I did — 
how boomerang throwers are 
ranked; it seems that the cham- 
pion is the thrower who can keep 
his instrument in the air longest 
before it returns to his hand.) 

Mr Schummy, whom I found in 
an old copy of the Sunday 
Telegraph Magazine at the 
dentist’s, has an established boo- 
merang air time of 3633 seconds 
(if your watch has a seconds hand, 
time it — you will be astonished at 
how long it is), and is now, he says, 
keeping the thing aloft for a whole 
minuie.1 have no such obsession, 
lei alone skill. But I think I 
understand it, and 1 am sure that I 
admire it. The spirit which ani- 
mates these eccentric champions 


is at bottom the same as that 
which drove Flecker’s pilgrims on 
the golden road to Samarkand: 


We travel not for trafficking 
alone : 

By hotter winds our fiery lusts 


arefanned: 
ofki 


For love of knowing what should 
not be known. 

We take the Golden Road to 
Samarkand. 


That is surely an admirable 
attitude, is it not? And the envy 
that we feel for it is not, I think, 
grounded in a wish to be officially 
classed “the best"; it is based on a 
yearning for perfection, or at least 
a longing to strive for perfection. 
Perfection is an end in itself, as 
indeed has been clearly dem- 
onstrated by the eccentrics who 
seek it in such odd comers, for few 
people are going to nudge one 
another and point just because the 
world’s greatest basket weaver or 
tea taster has gone by. 

J was one of the twelve million 
people who stayed up to watch 
that astounding snooker champ- 
ionship final in which the man 
with the upside-down glasses won 


with the very last stroke — and I 
am not interested in snooker, 
indeed do not even know the 
rules. What kept me in front of the 
television set? I was staying with 
friends in the country, and every- 
body had gone to bed except my 
host and L He rose — he cares for 
snooker no more than I do — and 
bade me goodnight; on the way 
out of the room he paused behind 
my chair to glance at the screen, 
and he stood there, unmoving, his 
body still turned at the angle that 
was to take him to the door, for the 
next 45 minutes. 

We could not know of the 
amazing finish; but we had both 
been seized by the realisation that 
we were watching two men app- 
roaching very dose to perfection; 
the knowledge was so enthralling 
thai we bad to see it out 

Of course, there are other 
relativities. To play snooker like 
that or to juggle flawlessly with 
two dozen coloured rings, or for 
that matter to decipher Linear B, 
is not so great an achievement as 
to write Fidelia , or design the 
Baptistry in Florence. But in the 
house of achievement there are 
many mansions. 


There was a French postman, 
called Cheval: his beat was a 
country one, near Hauterives. He 
conceived — no one seems to 
know why or how —a magnificent 
obsession, to build, from nothing 
but pebbles picked up on bis 
round, a miniature palace and 
temple. For 35 years as he 
delivered the letters he fiiled his 
pockets with stones (be was 
repeatedly reprimanded and fined 
by his superiors for ruining bis 
uniform by overloading his pock- 
ets) and at the weekends he would 
go to the site of his building and 
pile them one upon another. . 

He continued after his 
retirment, and his monument 
stands to this day; visitors can 
enter it, though a tall man might 
bump his head, and wander about 
its miniature arcades and galleries, 
halls and domes, statues and 
niches. Every bit of it he found, 
and every bit he put in place with 
his own hands. It has no great 
claims to be art of architecture, but 
it is now a national monument, 
and so it should be. For it testifies 
in its humbler way, as surely as 
Notre Dame does in its might, to 
the dream of perfection that every 
fitily human being knows, but that 
a few, a very few, dream waking. It 
is today called “Le Palais Ideal", 
which must surely please the 
shade of Postman Cheval. 

You may smile at Postman 
Cheval or the boomerang man, 
but they know a secret which 
eludes the rest of us. For the 
builder and the thrower, by devot- 
ing their lives to one aim, have 
done something more than can be 
measured by their achievements; 
they have touched the hem of 
perfection’s garment Only the 
hem, mind; it takes Mozart to 
grasp the sleeve. But I think it 
takes more time, more energy and 
above all more determination 


than you and I have got even to 
feel the fa ‘ ‘ 


fabric brush our hand. Of 

one thing I am quite sure, though; 
once experienced that touch can 
never be forgotten.

My case for PR, 

in spite of all 


Although, as a loyal Liberal MP. I 
do my best to keep the boat on an 
even keel, my seniors in the party 
suspect that some of my opinions 
are not quite orthodox; indeed, are 
positively heretical. 

■ Generally. I think, they are 
wrong, but I must admit to one 
opinion which goes against the 
party's most cherished beliefs- 1 
generally keep it dark, for fear of 
dire retribution, but the time has 
come to publish and be damned. 
So here goes: / do not belief c that 
proportional representation would 


necessarily be to the Liberal 
r’s elec 


Party's electoral advantage. 

Well. I'm still here, still typing 
and marshalling my argument 
which rests partly on the record of 
equivalent parties in other Euro- 
pean countries that have PR. They 
sometimes achieve a toehold ro 
government but are seldom. _ if 
ever, dominant and have to tnm 
their policies to suit the dominant 
partner. Not an alluring prospect. 

Our party in Britain is the 
largest and most radical of ail 
European Liberal parties, surviv- 
ing. and thriving, within an out- 
dated, unfair electoral system. 

Outdated? you ask. Unfair? But 
weren’t you just knocking PR, the 
obvious alternative? 

WelL no, I wasn’t Whatever its 
effect on Liberal fortunes, I favour 
it as the only way for ail shades of 
opinion, on every political issue, 
to be given adequate expression. 

PR's benefits, or disadvantages, 
to the Liberal Party depend en- 
tirely on one's confidence that the 
Alliance, as the public becomes 
increasingly disillusioned with the 


other two parties, will hit the 
kpot It is 


electoral jackpot It is all a matter 
of numbers. Under PR the 26 per 
cent Alliance vote in the last 
election would have given us ISO 
MPs instead of the mere 23 in feet 
returned. But consider what 
would happen were we to achieve 
a 40 per cent vote — not beyond 
the bounds of possibility. Under 
PR, 260 seats and dependence on 
another party to form a govern- 
ment First-past-the-post: 326 
seats and an absolute majority. 

The publication this week of 
Peter Hain's Proportional Mis- 
representation puts the subject in a 
broader context than usuaL The 
book's central thesis is that while 
PR would be fairer, it coukl result 
in a less democratic government 
Some of the old chestnuts are 
reheated, such as that of breaking 
local links between MPs and their 
constituents. Those with rural 
constituences may agree, but as an 
MP m a city with relatively 
arbitrary boundaries, t am un- 
convinced. 

The one difficulty Peter Hain 
outlines which does occasionally 
disturb my unselfish nature is the 
possibility that given the existing 
structure and balance of British 
political parties, the Alliance, as 


and to enable peaceful change lies 
51 healthy ‘ 


at the heart ofhealthy democratic 
processes. Our existing electoral 
system is an innocent accomplice 
in thwarting Those processes. Cer- 
tainly PR is no panacea for all ills 
but its advantages in our current 
political crises are vivid however 
much it might harm Alliance 
prospects in-the short term. 

How's that for Liberal altruism?

Christmas in Belfast, 
by Lanoia Herbage 
Spending Christmas Day on patrol 
in riot-torn Belfast was not what 
Captain Percy Flavour had in 
mind when he joined the 3rd 
Battalion, The Trouble-Shooters. 
It was cold and it was dangerous. 
So when he returned to his patrol 
vehicle and found a bulging 
Christmas stocking attached to it, 
labelled “To My Darling Percy", 
he immediately had it blown up by 
explosives experts. 

Little did he know that it was a 
genuine present from Irma Crush, 
the dashing 1TN camerawoman 
who had fallen in love with the 
brave captain when filming him 
for an exclusive interview. Un- 
used to the ways of women. 
Captain Flavour had not guessed 
why ITN had returned for another 
14 exclusive interviews. But could 
this budding romance survive her 
gift of after-shave, five-year diary, 
tangerine and walnuts being 
blown to smithereens? And how 
could Irma reconcile her news 
values with her hopeless passion 
for an army officer? This novel 
will devastate any media people 
who have recently fallen in love or 
have had beautifully wrapped 
presents blown up.

L . 





the only non-cfess*bascd group, 
could bold office cor Jtantly js the 
pendulum swung between left and 
right But that hypothesis does not 
take into account the fundamental 
change in political structures and 
voting habits that PR wouM bnng. 

It is akin to suggesting tint the 
1832 Reform Act left the Whigs 
and Tories unchanged or that the 
1 867 Reform Act had no influence 
on the rise of organized labour. It 
is also worth recalling that in West 
Germany, the Social Democrats 
and Christian Democrats once 
formed a grand coalition, with the 
liberal Free Democrats as the only 
opposition. 

The most powerful aigumoat in 
favour of PR is the possibilny of 
ending the besetting sin of the 
British voter the tendency to vo« 
negatively. British elections tend 
not to be won by opposition 
parties but to be lost by govern- 
ments. Our system not only 
permits negative voting; it pos- 
itively encourages it- The con- 
sequence is a dangerously ksw 
level of interest and concern about . 
political ideas and values. 

Our social and economic prob- - 
lems cannot be overcome without 
a deeper political consciousness 
among foe electorate. There are no 
simple answers, whatever any 
politician says, and the public 
needs to be nudged by every 
means possible to consider the 
options and the consequences 
attached to each- So long as. 
candidates can win elections by 
attacking their opponents there is 
no incentive for more rigorous 
thinking. ' ' 

The most attractive <u PR 
systems, the single transferable 
vote, specifically requires positive 
choices. It also, of course, obviates 
the third party “squeeze" - an 
aspect not dealt with by Peter 
Hain, who seems to turn a blind 
eye to Labour's continued dom- 
ination of councils in towns and 
cities with a majority of non- 
Labour voters. 

The pernicious extension of 
political control into employment 
policies, ending support of vol- 
untary groups whose feces do not 
fit, and the use of public funds for 
political propaganda are a delib- 
erate Labour reaction to the 
government’s equivalent erosion 
of pluralism by abolishing recal- 
citrant locftl authorities.

and her supposed bomb fac- 
tory in a house in North 
London continues to nag at the 
conscience of British justice 
* She and six others were con- 

ESP 1 ? ^ old Bailey in 
1976 of unlawfully handling 
explosives; one died in prison 
and the rest have now served 
their sentences. They.stiU pro- 
test their innocence. 

Mr Robert Kee is the latest 

m a senes of investigators to 
draw attention to the grounds 
for fearing that the convictions 
were a miscarriage of justice, 

I and today in The Times 
} Cardinal Basil Hume appeals 
i once more for a further review. 
In the history of judicial errors 
this pattern alone should be 
t. Janufiar enough to arouse 
f suspicion. Wrongful convic- 
| lions have a habit of forcing 
[ themselves on to public atten- 
i tion time and again; rightful 
: convictions, even if at first 
* hotly contested, generally fade 
i from public memory with the 
i passing of time. 

This case is all the more 
disturbing, and all the more 
: difficult for the Home Sec- 
: retary, for three reasons. The 
! case against Mrs Maguire and 
her six co-defendants rested 
upon a single strand of scien- 
: tific evidence, the thin-layer 
|i chromatography testing for. 

: nitroglycerine on microscopic 
; samples. Because of the strict 
1 rules applied by the Court of 
Appeal, a successful challenge 
■ to the conviction would some- 
how have to prove that these 
scientific results were un- 
sound. There being no more 
samples available for further 


tests, it is inherently an almost 
impossible criterion. 

. The second unusual feature 
is the relationship between this 
case and the convictions for 
the pub-bombing in 
Guildford. Mrs Maguire’s 
home was believed by the 
police, after a tip-off from a 
petty criminal, to be the 
factory from which the 
Guildford bomb came. The 
connection between the two 
cases was not spelt out to the 
court; which is a pity, as 
farther developments in the 
Guildford case suggest an al- 
together different complexion. 

For the Balcombe Street 
IRA gang later claimed sole 
responsibility for Guildford, 
and even gave somewhat 
grudging evidence at the Court 
of Appeal to this effect The 
court was not persuaded, 
though it did not rule out their 
participation. But if the 
Guildford convictions were 
wrong, then the police raid on 
die Maguire household look- 
ing for nitroglycerine was not a 
clever piece of detective fol- 
low-up. It was a random 
search on a house whose only 
remote connection with 
Guildford was the Irish na- 
tionality of its occupants. And 
if, approaching the puzzle in 
reverse, the Maguire convic- 
tions were unsafe because of 
doubts about the scientific 
evidence, there are reasons for 
questioning the Guildford ver- 
dicts too. 

It is when the two cases are 
looked at together, in the light 
of the questionable tip-off 
which was their only connec- 
tion, that really grave doubts 
arise. No court has ever under- 


taken such a comprehensive 
review. Nor could it do so, 
because the two cases are 
technically separate. It may 
need a special inquiry outside 
the formal processes of the 
courts to take note of every 
relevant detail 

The third cause of difficulty 
is that some of the reasons for 
questioning the course of jus- 
tice in these cases are of a kind 
which could well sway any 
fair-minded individual but 
which have no value as strict 
evidence. The persistent claim 
to innocence of the Maguire 
defendants is of such a kind. 
Moreover, the well-known 
pattern of behaviour of IRA 
terrorists after conviction 
bears no resemblance to the 
way the Maguire group be- 
haved in prison. The IRA has 
never claimed them as its own; 
and IRA prisoners in jail with J 
them persisted in disowning 
them. It is for these, less 
tangible reasons, that distin- 
guished people who have come 
to know them weD in prison — 
Lord Htt, Sir John Biggs- 
Davison, and Cardinal Hume 
himself, for instance — have 
become convinced of their 
innocence. 

That is no reason for 
overturning the convictions, 
of course. But it is good 
enough for the Home Sec- 
retary to look for some new 
and perhaps less usual remedy, 
such as the appointment of a 
senior lawyer to investigate 
and report. In circumstances 
as complicated and as persis- 
tently worrying as these, the 
interests of justice may not be 
served by farther formal ap- 
peals. 


ROCKY PROSPECTS 


MtU> hinptn’; 

:es wem

Senor Felipe Gonzalez, 
Spain’s admirable Prime Min- 
ister, has used an interview 
with BBC radio to demand 
that significant progress 
should be made on the issue of 
Gibraltar within the next four 
years — the lifetime of his 
* government His specific 
objective is'at least a timetable 
for the transition from British 
to Spanish rule, reversing 
thereby the Treaty of Utrecht 
under which the Rock was 
ceded to Britain in 1713. 

It is not the first time that he 
has stated his position. Nor is 
he the only person to do so. 
King Juan Carlos felt obliged 
to raise the question during his 
state visit here last April He 
did so again at the United 
Nations last month, calling 
Britain’s continuing sov- 
ereignty over this grumbling 
Spanish appendix an 
“anachronism”. 

In one sense it is. But it is 
equally anachronistic for a 
socialist Spanish government 
to be so apparently obsessed 
by this ancient cause celebre 
now. Perhaps it is time there- 
fore to remind the Spanish 
monarch and his ministers 
that their claim to Gibraltar’s 
sovereignty is extremely weak, 
both in terms of international 
law and human rights. 

British policy is restricted by 
the terms of the 1 969 Gibraltar 
constitution under which this 
country would never negotiate 
sovereignty away “against the 
freely and democratically ex- 
:*■ pressed wishes of its people”. 
Although Spain is now a 
flourishing democracy, a part- . 
ncr of Britain in the European 


* 


Community and an ally in 
Nato, the Rock’s 27,000 inhab- 
itants remain under British 
rule because they overwhelm- 
ingly want to. 

The average Gibraltarian is 
something of a Mediterranean 
hybrid, but one with a strong 
-Spanish strain. He speaks 
Spanish, probably has rela- 
tions in Spain and since the 
border was reopened in early 
1985, may even live there. At 
the last count more than 1,000 
Gibraltarians bad solved their 
accommodation problem on 
the overcrowded British col- 
ony by moving into La Linea 
or its surrounds. Certain cate- 
gories of Spaniard can now 
even set up business in Gibral- 
tar. 

It is a relatively happy 
picture in which the signifi- 
cance of the narrow frontier is 
diminishing by the month. 
Indeed, the fear among Gibral- 
tarians is that they will grad- 
ually become Hispanified by a 
process of osmosis. Is it not in 
Spain’s interests to let this 
happen over time? 

No doubt Senor Gonzalez 
wants to assure his electorate 
that he has not forgotten what 
he sees as his historic 
responsibility to restore 


arouse nothing but hostility on 
the Rock. 

There are, it is true, a 
number of specific issues 
which would benefit from a 
little more reasonableness on 
both sides. The opposition of 
Gibraltarians to Spain’s de- 
mand for an air t erminal on 
Gibraltar's airfield and to any 
accommodation with Spain 
over the requirement that 
Spaniards have to pass 
through Gibraltar’s customs 
and passport control might be 
considered unreasonable. On 
the other hand, it is in- 
comprehensible why RAF air- 
craft flying into Gibraltar 
airfield should not be allowed 
to pass through the air space of 
a Nato ally. 

Nor did the row caused by 
last July’s derision to with- 
draw the British guard on the 
Gibraltarian side of the bor- 
der — and Madrid’s refusal to 
reciprocate unless the frontier 
gates themselves were re- 
moved — reflect well on either 
party. The British and Spanish 
governments should make a 
determined effort to settle aD 
outstanding details of this kind 

But the Spanish side should 
not expect a ready solution to 
the wider issue of sovereignty. 
It is in neither government’s 


Spain's ancestral heritage. But * interest now to pursue a 

is it really in Spanish interests ** in 

to keep raising the question of 
sovereignty over a reluctant 
population? Even the com- 
promises which are thrown up 
from time to time — like the 
possibility of a lease-back 
arrangement or a form of 
shared-sovereignty (the so- 
called “Andorra solution”) — 


question which still causes 
deep resentment on the Rock. 
And by calling for a timetable 
as a starting point, Senor 
Gonzalez is setting problems 
for his own government and 
for Britain. He is half-promis- 
ing his electorate something 
that this country cannot now 
reasonably deliver. 


MARITAL DEMOCRACY 


h is not uncommon for mili- 
tary regimes to hold elections 
in order to give a semblance of 
civilian credibility to their 
continued exercise of power. 
Does the electoral process 
presently underway in Bangla- 
desh fit this pattern? 

Last May the parliament 
elections were won, amidst 
widespread and widely be- 
lieved charges of rigging, by 
the armv's chosen Jaiiyo 
Party. Now. on Wednesday, a 
' Presidential poll is to be held 
to provide a popular mandate 
for President Ershad himself 

The problem is that a cred- 
ible opposition candidate is 
required for the presidential 
election to satisfy the regime s 
critics at home and abroad. 
President Ershad was able to 
convince the Awami League, 
one of Bangladesh's two lead- 
ing parties, to participate in 
the May elections. But the 
opposition, alleging electoral 
fraud, boycotted the new 
Assembly and have set strin- 
gent conditions before they 
join another election. 

The main one is that 
dent Ershad should lift martial 
law to ensure that ihe army is 
less able to manipulate the 
result The President refused. 



new civilian President was 
elected would create a 
constitutional vacuum. But his 
real concern may have been 
that parliament has not yet 
had time to grant indemnity to 
the military for the 1982 coup. 
To lose the protection of 
martial law would leave the 
generals vulnerable. , 

As a compromise. President 
Ershad stepped down as army 
chief of staff. That was not 
enough to convince the oppo- 
sition. Accordingly, the main 
political parties are boycotting 
the presidential poll and Presi- 
dent Ershad is to run against 
1 1 nonentities, one of whom is 
the admitted assassin of 
Bangladesh’s founder. Presi- 
dent Mujib, in 1975. Against 
such opposition President 
Ershad is bound to win even 
without rigging. Would such a 
victory be credible? 

The size of Wednesday’s 
turnout will be crucial. In 
March 1985 President Ershad 
held a referendum on his 
policies and announced that 
over 90 per cent of the people 
had voted. But the opposition 
estimate of 20 per cent was ■ 
widely believed. If the same 
happens on Wednesday, the 
vote will have failed. 


therefore called a general strike 
to ensure the turnout is poor. 
But the President has not left 
things to chance. Last week he 
banned any expression of 
opposition ' to the election, 
with violators facing seven- 
year sentences, and arrested 
opposition figures. 

Of course, there is little 
doubt that when the results are 
officially announced President 
Ershad will be elected and the 
turnout impressively high. 
How will the opposition re- 
spond? If they are able to bring 
people on to the streets in 
effective demonstrations, 
legitimacy will still elude the 
army. In addition, its chosen 
man for the presidency will 
have been rebuffed. 

The Generals may then 
choose to get rid of President 
Ershad and simply take over 
again. President Ershad, like 
President Marcos before him, 
could soon discover that elec- 
tions are not quite as simple as 
they seem. But if the oppo- 
sition parties have succeeded 
only in halting modest 
progress to democratic reform 
and perpetuated full military 
rule, they too may come to 
regret their boycott- Mrs 
Aquino showed, in even less 
promising circumstances, that 


LETTERS TO THE EDITOR 


Anxieties over 
Maguire case 

From the Cardinal Archbishop of 
Westminster 

Sir, We are indebted to Lord 
Scarraan (October 7) for drawing 
attention to the shortcomings of 
pre-trial procedures prior to the 
recent reforms introduced by the 
Criminal Evidence Act 1984. He 
adds that the trial and appeal 
process has shown itself “an 
uncertain instrument” in uncover- 
ing irregularities. 

This undoubtedly widens anxi- 
eties over the convictions in the 
Guildford bombings and the Ma- 
guire explosives cases, to both of 
which Lord Scarman drew atten- 
tion. My concent in this matter 
arose first from my contact with 
Patrick Joseph Cordon, whom I 
visited on a number of occasions 
in Wormwood Scrubs before his 
death in I 980. 1 became absolutely 
convinced of his innocence and 
because of that developed pro- 
found doubts about the justice of 
the Maguire convictions. 

Since 1978 I have raised this 
matter with three different home 
secretaries, both Labour and 
Conservative, and with the Prime 
Minister herselC 

Robert Kee's book. Tried and 
Error, articulates the serious anxi- 
eties I and many others have had 
about a possible miscarriage of 
justice, not only in the Maguire 
case but also in the convictions in 
the Guildford bombings triaL 

1 would strongly urge that in the 
interests of justice the Home 
Secretary should exercise the 
rights available to bim under 
section 17 of the Criminal Appeals 
Act 1968 whereby, “if he thinks 
fit”, he can refer such cases back to 
the Court of AppeaL

Putting customers first again 


From Sir Ian Morrow 
Sir. British manufacturing in- 
dustry was already declining at the 
time of the great depression in 
1929. This decline was disguised 
by the demands of the Second 
World War and the aftermath. 

The seeds of the present malaise 
were sown in the 1930s. There was 
great concern about the plight of 
the unemployed. Then, as now. 
the Labour Party and certain 
academics bad the solution, which 
was to proclaim that the prime 
object of industry was to provide 
jobs, not goods and services for 
customers. 

As capitalists didn't work to this 
theory, capitalism was to be 
abandoned. It became respectable 
not to go for labour-saving invest- 
ment. but instead to keep on 
unnecessary people; in short, to be 
inefficient was for the public good. 

Arising out of this came the 
theory that good industrial rela- 
tions solved all the problems, and 
personnel directors with consid- 
erable power began to appear in 
boardrooms. It was accepted that 
good industrial relations was the 
no. 1 priority, even above good 
customer relations, and from this 
came the vast increase in union 
power. 

Since the war, manufacturing 
industry, with some honourable 
exceptions, has consistently mis- 
read the market requirements. 
Industry in the US never put as its 
no. 1 priority the employment of 
people, nor industrial relations 
ahead of customer relations, but 
pursued efficiency and marketing 
relentlessly: a lesson which Ger- 
many and Japan have learned. 

In recent years manufacturing 
industry has begun to aim to 
please the market and increase 
efficiency, but not costs because of 
higher wage demands. The Labour 
Party arid the trade unions are 


hankering for a reium lo the days 
when employees were more im- 
portant than customers — this will 
accelerate the decline in British 
industry. The only hope is an. 
acceleration of the present trends 
towards productivity and cus- 
tomer satisfaction. 

Yours trulv, 

IAN MORROW. 

2 Albert Terrace Mews, NWl. 
October 3. 

From MrJ. E H. Brace 
Sir. The recent spate of ritual 
protests about excessive pay 
awards will of course, achieve 
nothing. By now. the Chancellor 
and the CB1 should have noticed 
that the recipients are. by and 
large, employed either in the 
public sector (where, notionally. 
the Treasury has some possibility 
of influence) or in industries, such 
as electrical contracting, which do 
not export, have no foreign com- 
petition and negotiate wage deals 
on an industry basis. 

In such industries employers are 
safe in the knowledge that they 
will ail raise prices simultaneously 
and that itaeir customers will just 
have to put up with it. Once the 
trend is set. of course, other less 
secure industries are hard put to 
resist the “going rate”. 

The solution, of course, is to 
treat industry wage bargaining like 
any other price-fixing arrange- 
ment and make it illegal. No doubt 
we would hear a chorus of protests 
from employers as well as unions, 
but we might also see some 
tougher negotiating if individual 
employers had to face the prospect 
of real competition. 

Yours faithfully.

Radio reception 

From the Managing Director, 
External Broadcasting. BBC 
Sir, If Professor Kittens personal 
experience of World Service 
reception on short wave on the 
west coast of the United States is 
that it is “intolerable" (October 8) 
then I am hardly in a position to 
argue with h. But I am in a 
position to welcome his judge- 
ment of our programming as 
“superb”, and to reassure him on 
the following points: 

1. Our other regular Pacific coast 
listeners report World Service 
reception as “fair or (mostly) 
good” on at least one frequency at 
all times. 

2. Audience research reports point 
to a regular World Service audi- 
ence In the United States of two 
million, despite reception that is 
not as easy in some parts as we 
would like it to be. We hope that 
audience will grow further now 
that World Service news and 
current-affairs programmes can be 
relayed on the 300-pjus stations of 
the American public radio net- 
work. 

3. Our engineers try to do what 
they can to maximise reception 
within the limitations of a Foreign 
and Commonwealth Office-fi- 
nanced programme whose prior- 
ities lie outside North America. 
Personally. I regard broadcasting 
to friends and allies as almost as 
important as broadcasting to 
dosed societies. We did actually 
change frequencies on our Antigua 
transmitter early this year and all 
our monitoring information 
points to this being a successful 
change. 

4. 1 think that Professor Kind is 
wrong about our worldwide lis- 
tener survey. To ask people, 
“What programmes would you 
listen to if there were suitable 
transmission?" is, surely, quite 
unrealistic. Short-wave trans- 
missions are rarely ideal. We want 
to know what people listen to and 
value under the actual listening 
conditions they experience. 

Finally, I myself took over the 
management of Bush House a 
month ago. I would be alarmed to 
think that my presence had al- 
ready cast a hex on west coast 
reception and that I was more 
damaging than a sunspot Hon- 
estly, Professor. I haven’t touched 
a kiloHerz since getting here.

EEC and shipping 

From Mr F. M. Everard 
Sir, Mucb of the bumper British 
grain harvest that has just been 
gathered in has been sold to Spain. 
Three cheers for British formers! 
But not one ton of those exports 
win be carried by British ships. 
Spain reserves all “essential” car- 
goes to hs own ships. So British 
barley for the Spanish State brew- 
ing monopotoy is taken by Span- 
ish owners at £6.50 per ton when - 
the going rate would be around £5. 

Three cheers for Spanish ship- 
owners; no cheer for Spanish beer 
drinkers and British owners. 

As the debating season in 
Brussels resumes under the UK 
presidency, British short sea ship- 
owners wryly reflect that, 13 years 
after Britain entered the EC, they 
are still on the receiving end of a 
great deal of discrimination. 
France also reserves many cargoes 
to its own ships. They, together 
with Greece, Italy, Spain and 
Portugal protect entirely their 
coastal trades. Yet the British 


coastal and short sea trade re- 
mains completely open to all 
comers. 

Proposals for ending all these 
discriminatory and unjust mea- 
sures have been before the 
Community transport ministers 
for 18 months. Decisions still 
seem for off. A few months ago 
British ministers were promising 
to take action if there was no early 
agreement. Now silence reigns. 

British ministers have a 
chairman's role to play for the 
next few months. But impartiality 
in debate must not mean neutral- 
ity of purpose. They must fight 
hard to end this scandal. If 
agreement cannot be> obtained, 
control must be exerted over our 
own cargoes. British short sea 
shipping cannot continue to have 
the worst of both worlds.

Housing needs 

From Lord Boyd-Carpenter 
Sir, His Royal Highness the Duke 
of Edinburgh, in his admirable 
and most interesting article in 
your issue of today (October 7), 
points out that a major weakness 
in the present organisation of 
housing is the disappearance over 
recent years of rented accom- 
• modation in the private sector. 

While the major structural 
changes which his Royal 
Highness's committee proposes 
would take some time to im- 
plement, the cause and cure of the 
present Jack of rented accom- 
modation is dear. It is the 
consequence of a good deal of well 
intentioned rent restriction and 
landlord and tenant legislation, 
which has destroyed any eco- 
nomic incentive to provide 
accommodation to rent. Ibis has 
been so within my own experi- 
ence. 

Some 20 years ago 1 was on the 


board of a property company 
which owned and operated a 
substantial number of rented flats 
in the greater London area. When 
it became apparent that we had 
very rarely either obtained pos- 
session or appropriately adjusted 
rents, we came to the clear 
conclusion that, in the interest of 
our shareholders, we would have 
to sell the property. This we did, in 
general giving the first opportu- 
nity of purchase to the tenant 
The position is therefore quite 
clear. Rented accommodation in 
the private sector, with the 
flexibility that it can provide, can 
only be brought into being by a 
drastic revision of current land- 
lord and tenant legislation. As his 
Royal Highness's article makes 
clear, the proper way to deal with 
any hardship resulting is through 
the social services. 

I am. Sir, your obedient servant

KAL shoot-down 

From Mr R. W. Johnson 
Sir. Christopher Andrew, In his 
“review” of my book. Shoot down: 
The Verdict on KAL 007 (October 
4). says he finds more acceptable 
the “com monsense” explanation* 
offered by Mr Hersh — you call it 
“prosaic" — as to how KAL007 
came to be off course. Just one of 
the innumerable suppositions 
Hersh has to make to support his 
theory of an accidental deviation 
off course is that the pilot left the 
flight cabin for five hours at a 
stretch - something unknown in 
intemationa] aviation. Prosaic? 


Mr Andrew also makes great 
play with his claim that “Signifi- 
cantly, the Shoot down index con- 
tains numerous references to the 
CIA but not one for the KGB .” 
This is quite untrue. The index 
details a number of references to 
the Komiiei Gosudarstvennoy 
Bezopasnosti. which, it explains 
both there and in the list of 
acronyms at the front of the book, 
abbreviates to KGB. I am not sure 
what significance Mr Andrew 
attaches to that

Battle of Britain 

From Mr Martin Gilbert 
Sir. Tbe letters you have published 
about Air Chief Marshal Lord 
Dowding (September 16. 20) have 
led a number of people to ask me, 
as Churchill’s biographer, whether 
it might not have been hostility on 
Churchiirs part that was respon- 
sible for Dowding's eclipse. 

In July. 1940 (before the Battle 
of Britain) the Secretary of State 
for Air. Sir Archibald Sinclair, told 
Churchill that he was considering 
removing Dowding from his com- 
mand. Churchill successfully re- 
jected this advice, informing 
Sinclair 

Personally. I think he is one of the 
very best men you have got. and i 
say this after having been in contact 
with him for about two years. I have 
greatly admired the whole or his 
work in the Fighter Command, and 
especially in resisting the .clamour 
for numerous air raid warnings, and 
the immense pressure to dissipate 
tbe Fighter strength during the great 
Firench bottle. In feet be las my full 

confidence. 


Churchill's letter to Sinclair 
j continued: 


gifted and so misted to be working 
on such a short tenure as four 
months, and I hope you will 
consider whether it. is not in the 
public interest that his appointment 
should be indefinitely prolonged 
while the war lasts. This would not 
of course exclude his being mdved to 
a higher position, if that were 
thought necessary. 

In November, 1940, when both 
Sinclair and the Air Staff unani- 

accept their advice. In doing so, 
however, he stressed to Sinclair 
his admiration for Dowding's 
qualities and achievements, and 
seven months later urged Sinclair 
to bring Dowding back to an 
operational command. This pro- 
posal was rejected by Sinclair and 
the Air Staff. 

in June. 1941. immediately 
after the foil of Crete, Churchill 
urged that Dowding should be 
recalled to active service as Com- 
mander-in-Chief of the Middle 
East Air Services. This too was 
rejected In September, 1941, 
CburfaiU wished Dowding to re- 
place Mr Marshal Tedder in the 
Middle East. He was confronted 
once more by the total refusal of 

I - J. * ‘ 


Staff to give Dowding any active 
command. 

Finally. I should like to referto a 
booklet on the Battle of Britain, 
issued by the Air Ministry in 1941, 
in which no mention was made of 
Dowding. 

The jealousies and cliquism which 
have led the commuting of this 
offence are a discredit to the Air 
Ministry, 

Churchill wrote to Sinclair, 
and I do not think any other Service 
department would have been guiliy 
of such a piece of work. What would 
have been said if ihtfWar Office had 
produced the story of the Battle of 
Libya and had managed to exclude 
General Wavell’s name, or if the 
Admiralty had told the tale of 
T rafalgar and left Lord Nelson out of 
it! 

Churchilfs letter to Sinclair 
ended: 

It grieves me very much that you 
should associate yourself with such 
behaviour. I am sure you were not 
consulted beforehand on the point, 
and your natural loyalty ro every- 
thing done in your department can 
alone have, led you to condone what 
nine out of 10 men would unhesitat- 
ingly condemn.

ON THIS DAY 


OCTOBER 13 1851 

The Great Exhibition held at the 
Crystal Palace in Hyde Park ran 
for five months and 11 days. It 
received 6,201,856 visits, the most 
on any one day totalling just 
under 100,000. Throughout that 
time the police brought only 25 
charges, all for petty larceny 


THE GREAT EXHIBITION 
... It was drawing near five 
o’clock; from the top of Keith and 
Co'b Spitalfields silk trophy, the 
whole nave, east and west, the area 
of tiie transept, and the galleries 
might be seen packed with a dense 
TTuwig of black h ff E R . through which 
at intervals a struggling female 
bonnet emerged here and there 
into light. The vast multitude haH 
now become stationary, and were 

evidently awaiting, in silent but 
intense excitement, the last act of a 
great event, immortal in the annals 
of the 19th century. It was a most 
solemn and affecting scene such as 
has rarely been witnessed, and for 
which an opportunity cannot soon 
again arise. Words cannot do it 
justice, and fail utterly to convey 
the mystery ami the grandeur thus 1 
embodied to the eye. Let the reader 
fancy what it must have been to 
comprehend within one glance 
50.000 people assembled under one 
roof in a fairy palace with walls of 
iron and glass, the strongest and 
the most fragile materials happily 
and splendidly combined. . . Let 
him tax his imagination to the 
uttermost, and still beyond the 
material magnificence of the spec 
tacle presented to him — let him 
remember that the stream of life on 
which he looks down contains in it 
the intellect and the heart of the 
greatest metropolis and the most 
powerful empire in the world. . 
Not only the days, but the minutes 
of the Great Exhibition were 
numbered, and the first sign of its 
dissolution was given for Osier’s 
crystal fountain. Just before five 
o'clock struck, the feathery jet of 
water from its summit suddenly 
ceased, and the silence of the vast 
omhlagp became deeper and 
more intense. 

The moment at last came. Mr 
Beishaw appeared at the west 
corner of the transept-gallery on 
tbe south side, hiring a large red 
Hag in his hand. This be displayed 
as the dock struck, and instantly 
all the organs in the budding were 
hurling into the air the well known 
notes of the National Anthem. At 
the same moment the assembled 
multitudes uncovered; and those 
who witnessed this act of loyalty 
from an advantageous position will 
long remember tire effect which it 
produced upon their minds. Where 
just before nothing was visible but 
mass of black bats gfcratrfring 
away until lost in tbe distance, 
immediately there appeared a great 
sea of upturned animated feces, 
and to the solemn silence of 
expectancy succeeded a volume of, 
sound in which the voices of tbe 
people were heartily joined. The 
Crystal Palace is not adapted for 
organ music, and, notwithstanding 
the number of them exhibited, they 
cannot, from the size of tire 
budding, be played in concert The 
cons eq u en ce was that, as a musical 
performance — there being no 
proper organization in the matter 
tiu singing of “God Save tire 
Queen” was a very discordant 
demonstration of loyalty- Herr 
Sommer did everything in his 
power and in that of his instrument 
to keep tire people in tune, but he 
was only partially successful. Some 
professional singers also gave their 
aid upon the occasion, and inspired 
the assemblage to follow. . . About 
tire feeling which accompanied it 
there could be no mistake, for as 
soon as it had dosed there arose 
such cheers as Englishmen alone 
know how to give. These were 
continued for several minutes, and 
when the last of them died away 
there passed over tire entire budd- 
ing, and with an effect truly 
sublime, a tremendous roUi 
sound, like that of thunder, earn 
by thousands of feet stamping their 
loyalty upon tire boarded floors. 
Under this demonstration every 
part of the edifice trembled, and, as 
it swept from west to east, many an 
eye was raised with anxiety to tbe 
gilders and pillars, which in kmg 
perspective were stretched out 
before them. . . And now tire time 
had arrived for the death peel ofj 
tire Exhibition to be rang (Hit. 

.. At last it came, and a perfect 
storm of bell peals broke over the 
budding, . . 


In common currency : 

From Mr Gareth Morris 
Sir, Mr Ray Ward (October 4)- 
wonders when the abbreviation-. 
for “pound" was first used in its 
stylized form of £ and was placed-- 
before the figure; he notes that iff' 
I83Z according to your “On This* 
Day” item (September27) about’-' 
Sir Walter Scott, it appears to have - 
been a lowercase/, placed afierthe ■ 
figure. “Phiz’s” famous mistake __ 
on the vignette title page of Martin - 
Chuzztmt suggests that in 1844- 
the usage was as it is today: in the - 
first issue of the first edition he ' 
had drawn “10G£ Reward”, but-- 
this was promptly corrected in the' 
second issue.

Clifford Longley 


Blank screen of royal belief 


Relations between the Queen 
and her family and the re- 
' iigious life of the nation are a 
frequent source of speculation 

in inverse proportion to the 

amount of factual substance to 
iL On a blank screen everyone 
is free to project his or her 

fantasies or to call the name of 

royalty in aid of any favoured 
cause. 

Thus the Queen has been 
apologized to by the Church 
House authorities, for a 
Communion service by a 
woman priest in a hall m that 
building which .happens to 
come within the ancient limits 
of Westminster Abbey, a 
Royal Peculiar. It is said to be 
under her ‘-personal 
jurisdiction'", as if she super- 
vised the bookings herself. 

But the alleged slight is 
fanciful, except in the minds 
of those for whom female 
ordination is abhorrent, for it 
cannot be supposed that the 
Supreme Governor of the 
Church of England either 
knows or cares what transpires 
in the Bishop Partridge Hall 
day by day: and the Move- 
ment for the Ordination of 
Women, whose booking it 
was, can hardly be disbelieved 
when it denies any intention 
to offend her. 

Beyond the narrowest of 
court circles no one really 
knows what the Queen thinks 
about the ordination of 
women anyway. Moderately 
Low Church .Anglicans who 
have enough theology not to 
mistake the key points of the 


argument tend to be in favour 
ofii; and she is in that class. It 
is unlikely she holds strongly 
to Sr Paul’s view that a woman 
must not have authority over 
a man. 

It is unlikely, on the other 
hand, 

unlawfulness, 
nothing, and it appears, to be a 
rule with ner never to venture 
into religious controversy; nor 
does she allow her' family and 
court to do so (unless one 
counts the Duke of 
Edinburgh's reputed habit of 


such as would completely 
explain similar conduct from 
more ordinary mortals. 

This very low profile of 
conduct from a Royal Family 
which certainly seems to take 
very seriously its Christian 
thatlbe Iwovnof fefth « “ keeping with its. 
illness. But she has said Jjd 0 ' pohey of abstaining 
from public controversy on 
political matters; and such a 
course would need no farther 
explanation if the only issue 
was the encouragement of 
peace between churchmen and 
churches. But the nature of 


slapping dories on the back 
and asking them loudly why 
they believe in God). 

In a similar way the Prince 
of Wales’s recent discreet visit 
to a Roman Catholic Mass in 
the company of Roman 
Catholic friends brought ex- 
cited Protestant condemna- 
tion from the Church Society, 
which conceives it as its duty 
to keep England clear of all 
papal contamination; and 

warm approval from Roman 
Catholic spokesmen, as if the 
Prince had done something 
really special for them. 

The visit may in- fact have 

g ‘ven him a distaste for 
atholicism and led him to 
thank God for his own native- 
born Anglicanism, for all any- 
one knows: or he may be 
about to convert, thereby 
spectacularly surrendering his 
daim in the royal succession. 
It is much less exciting to 
suppose that the visit was 
motivated by ecumenical 
courtesy and pious curiosity. 


society and of religious feeling 
within it has- changed j fun- 
damentally' in the present 
Queen's own lifetime, and 
indeed in her own reign. 

The great divide is now 
between those for whom re- 
ligious ideas and feelings,, 
except for bouts of occasional 
sentimentality, have receded 
to the margins of conscious- 
ness; and those for whom they 
are still the very backbone of 
existence. A traditional policy 
of neutrality on questions of 
religion, applied in that new 
context, becomes a policy of 
neutrality between, the 
conflicting daims of secularist 
materialism and Christian 
faith, and hence a statement - 
communicated ironically by 
silence - that the choice does 
not matter. 

Attributed to a totally secu- 
lar head of state such a 
proposition would be merely a 
private one; but coming from 
the Supreme Governor of the 
Church of England it has 
public weight. If it leaves the 


monarchy as indeed a blank 
screen on to which people may 
project their own images and 
preferences, then the wqie«> 
tion in such a case will be the 
secularist one. 

The Queen will be pre- 
sumed to regard religion as no 
more important than most of 
her subjects think it is; and a 
matter of private personal 
opinion at that- In fact, to 
move away from that neutral- 
ity would -probably not risk 
bringing the Crown into dis- 
respect, for public rt^al sip- 
port for the tenets of right 
religion is already part of the 
iob.specificatioa; and the- pub- 
lic already know that. 

As it is, royal involvement 
with religion at a highly visible 
public level tends to be con- 
fined to set-pieces full of 
ancient ceremonial like wed- 
dings and national thanks- 

f "wings, or to archaic customs 
ke Ma unday Money. It 
contributes to the 

colourfulness of the tourist 

brochures and rings all the 
right historical bells; but it 
does not enable those who 
take part to bridge the distance 
between themselves and or- 
dinary people* or between the 
past inheritance of religious 
faith and the present relevance 
of it. 

If it only ever appears as 
part of the tradition of the 
past, in old-fashioned customs 
and old-fashioned language, 
the widely held view that 
relipon is out of place in the 
contemporary world will be 
generally confirmed.

The police earn 
a lot more than 



Being one of London's police 
pubuc. officers is more demanding and 

more dangerous than most jobs. 
Understandably; it pays better, too. 
If you come in at our mini- 
mum age, 18 1 *, you’ll start 
on £9,648, including London 
allowances. 

If you’re over twenty-two, 
your added maturity will be of more use to us. So youll start 
on more, £11,652. On top of this, you’re, entitled to a tax-paid 
rent allowance of up to £2,811, depending on where you live, 
or free accommodation. 

Promotion to Sergeant brings with it a basic salary of 
£14,268, rising to £16,089. Promotion to Inspector can earn 
you £16,854, rising to £18,783. However, you’ve got plenty of 
intensive training, a couple of stiff exams and a lot of 
experience to gain before you get that far. 

To apply, you will have to be at least 172cms tall if you're 
a man, or 162cms for a woman. Ideally, you should have 
around five ‘O’ levels, but qualifications aren’t everything. 
We’re also looking for all, the personal qualities that make a 
good police officer. Finally, despite what we’ve said so far, we 
don’t want to hear from any- 
one who’s just interested in 
the salary 

The real rewards ofbe- 
ing a police officer, at artyj 
level, aren’t the sort you 
can put in the bant and avery go o d swj gc

Science report 


Insight into growth of deer antlers 


By Pearce Wright, Science Editor 


A new insight into hormone 
control over brae growth, 
wound healing and tissue 
regeneration has come from 
Observations of the animal 
r e gro w th of antlers of red deer 
in Scotland. 

The results were presented 
at a recent meeting of the 
Royal Society in London as a 
unique example of the link 


• — -f' ' 

WHF.N VoV t xTB'ipr. ▼ 


in mammals and its control by 
sex hormones. 

The investigation had other 
unusual aspects: it was a joint 
inquiry ' between die Medical 
Research Council’s reproduc- 
tive biology unit in Edinburgh 
and an animal research group 
at the Institute of Zoology, at 
Regent's Park. 

Tire complex natnre of the 
cycle, in which the animal 
sheds its antlers at die end of 
the breeding season and 
redevelops them each year, 
became apparent in research 
started 15 years ago by Dr 
Gerald* Lincoln, of the 
reproductive biology unit He 
began by examining free-liv- 
ing red deer on the Isk of 
Rfanm, off the west coast of 
Scotland, and the measure- 
ments have continued using* a 
S Bfoodlhin5y{4) t 4 


small group of stags kept on a 
deer farm near 
Auchten n udity. Fife. 

The rate at which the new 
antlers grow is a remarkable 
physiological phenomenon. 
They develop at ap to ooe 
centimetre a' day and a com- 
plete new set, weighing as 
much as 25 kg in the moose, 
may be produced in three 
months. 

The medical and animal 
research team are fascinated 
by the biofogy which underlies 
both the seasonal deciduous 
process and the genetics that 
determine the shape of the 
antlers. 

The centre of a growing 
antler is formed eg cartilage; 
which becomes p ro gressively 
harder with deposits of cal- 
cium. The mowing antler fa 
provided with an abundant 
supply of nutrients from a 
prolific network of blood ves- 
sels in the thick covering of 
skin, , which is also rich in 
nerve fibres and the hair 
follicles' that produce the vel- 
vet fine covering of hair. 

When the antlers reach 
maturity, a rapid change oc- 
curs. A final period of 
caldficationjakes pkqp. The 


blood supply fa suddenly re- 
stricted and the layer of skin is 
shed. When exposed the hard 
underlying bone dies and then 
remains intact for six months . 

Each stage of the cycle, from 
the shedding id the velvet and 
casting of the dead antler, to 
regrowth, fa associated with 
changes in the concentrations 
of the male hormone testos- 


Tbe pattern of the male 
hormone levels is syn- 
chronized to the time of the 
year and day length, involving 
the secretion of melatonin 
from the ptneal gland . That in 
torn influences the release of 
the stimulant from the brain, 
LHRH, that, triggers the 
secretion of the gonadotrophic 
hormone by what is sometimes 
regarded as the master control 
of the body's endocrine sys- 
tem, the pituitary gland. 

Stags given an implant of 
long-acting doses of hormones 
retained their antiers for 
longer periods. SimUarty. re- 
growth was interrupted if there 
was a deliberate change in foe 
normal growth of skin over the 
peskfe from which the antler 
had been shed. 


OBITUARY 
MISS PRIAULX RAINIER 
Notable composer and teacher 


Miss Priaulx Rainier, who 
died in France on October 10. 
at the age of 83, was known as 
a composer of scrupulous 
judgment and discriminating 
tayto Though she did _ not 
court a wide appeaL writing 
little (generally for small 
groups) and publishing less; 
she won the admiration or 
musicians of the calibre of 
Bax. Tippeix, Sir Wiliam 
Glock and Sir Peter Pears, ana 
the affection of many friends 
and pupils. 

She was bora in Natal on 
February 3, 1903, and after an 
early childhood in ZuJufand 
she. studied at the South 
African College of Music, 
Cape Town. There her violin 
playing won ho - a Cape Urn- 


extreme but no t ex cessive 
demands on her pertonners. 
The firm, sometimes abrupt 
but skilfully contrasted ges- 
tures of her muse have a 
certain obvious affinity .with 
the sculpture of her mend 
Barbara Hepwonh. 

Other works that made an 
impression included an or- 
chestral Sinfonia da camera 
f 19*47) a Suite for clarinet and 
piano (1943), a second Siring 
Quartet (1966), some songs 
and piano musiawd espe- 
cially the impassioned Requi- 
em of) 956. 

She also composed a re- 
markable unaccompanied 
"Declamation" for Peter 
Pears, which she said she 


iw— - wears, wmui **!*■ "*■ 

playing won her a Cape U m- . . d ^ difficult as any of her 

versityscholarahiptptheRoy- u, write, 

al Academy of Muac >n J920, . m ^ 


and she settled in Loudon, 
earning her living as a violin- 
ist and teacher. In 1937 she 
studied with Nadia Boulanger 
in Paris. . . 

She first won international 
notice as a composer with her 
String Quartet of 1939. In this, 
many of the qualities which 
were to mark her idiotn were 
convincingly revealed. They 
include a sharp clarity of 
thought, and the use of con- 
ventional techniques in an 
entirely independent manner: 
laconic, rigorous and strictly 
aiguol However, there is also 
in her music a wit that is 
captivatingly displayed in her 
Viola Sonata of 1 945. 

Herself a gifted violinist and 
pianist, she knew how to make 


Apart from her achieve- 
ments as a composer, she. was 
one of the ouistanding teach- 
ers of her lime, almost compa- 
rable with her own mentor, 
Nadia Boulanger, of whose 
qualities her pupils felt they - 
were receiving the benefit at 
one remove. .As a professor of 
composition at the Royal 
Academy from 1943 lo_ 1961 
she influenced a generation of 
musicians. ’ 

Her standards were un- 
flinchingly high, and this 
made, her a stimulating, de- 
manding, rewarding compan- 
ion: those who knew her, and 
penetrated a certain shyness, 
found a personality of unique 
warmth, wit and talent. 

She was unmarried. 


DR RUDOLF FLESCH 


Dr Rudolf Flesch, an Amer- 
ican authority on illiteracy, 
died in New York on October 
5. He was 75. 

Illiteracy and near-illitera- 
cy. he maintained, were wide- 
spread in the United States 
because the nation's schools 
were teaching children the 
meaning of whole words rath- 
er to read by phonics, or the 
sounds of letters. “All alpha- 
betic languages except English 
are taught this way. Why do 
we do it differently V 

He castigated teachers who 
taught children to read by 
using the so-called look-and- 
say method rather than sys- 
tematic phonics. “Over 60 
million illiterates", said 
Flesch, “are the victims of our 
own educational 

establishment". 

Rudolf Franz Flesch was 
born in Vienna on May 8. 
191 1. He received a doctorate 
of law from the University of 


Vienna in 1933 and left for 
America five years later. . He 
earned another doctorate; in 
library science, from Colum- 
bia University in 1943, and 
the following year became a 
naturalized US citizen. 

He was a prolific writer on 
illiteracy, and caught the pub^ 
lie eye with his first work. The 
Art of Plain Talk (1946), m 
which he advocated a plain, 
easy-to-read style of writing. 

Other books included The 
Art of Readable Writing 
(1949). How to Make Sense 
( 1954) and IVhv Johnny Can !( 
Read (1955). ‘Almost three 
decades later Johnny was no 
further forward, Flesch con- 
tended, when he published 
Why Johnny Still Can’t Read. 

He married, in 1941, Eliza- 
beth Terpen ning. She died in 
1975. There were five daugh- 
ters and one son of the 
marriage. 


SIR VINCENT LLOYD-JONES 


Mr Ivor Bulmer-Thomas 
writes: 

Sir Vincent Lloyd-Jones, 
the facts of whose life you 
recorded on September 25, 
was in his prime one of the 
best speakers and raconteurs 
of the day. 

Having studied the English 
language at the feet of Cham- 
bers and modelled himself on 
his hero Asquith, he delivered 
beautifully constructed sen- 
tences that could persuade or 
demolish. 

He could have made a 
career in politics no less than 
at the Bar, and it may not be 
without significance that 
when he went to the Palace to 
be dubbed he was announced 
as “Mr Winston Lloyd 
George.” He was invited to 
stand as a Liberal for Carmar- 
then. but in the end decided to 
devote himself exclusively to 
the law. 

He was bound to become a 
judge, but it was a pity that 


when he did he was put in the 
Family Division, where he 
found the business of termi- 
nating marriages utterly 
distasteful. 

He was brought up in the 
strictest seat of Welsh noncon- 
formity. The eminent preach- 
er Dr Martyn Lloyd-Jones was 
his brother, and his own 
conduct of a Sunday School 
class at the Charing Cross 
Road chapel is still remem- 
bered with admiration. De- 
spite this background he 
hovered all his adult life on 
the brink of Roman 
Catholicism. 

Chesterton was another 
hero, and he was a leading 
figure in the Thomas More 
Society. Nevertheless, in the 
end it was in his Anglican 
parish church that his soul was 
commended to its maker. 

As befitted a Welshman, he 
had a great love of music, aixl 
it was a joy to him to see his 
son, David, become conduc- 
tor of the Opera of the North. 


DR REX WOODS 


Dr Reginald (Rex) Salisbury 
Woods died recently, at the 
age of 94. 

He retired only four years 
ago as the oldest active medi- 
cal practitioner in Cambridge, 
where for sixty years he had 
been a familiar, loved and 
admired figure. 

Bom on October 15. 1891, 
he was educated at Dulwich 
and Downing College, Cam- 
bridge. where he gained a half- 
blue for weight-putting (the 
first undergraduate to achieve 
more than 40 feet). 

Later he was British weight- 
putting champion and repre- 
sented the country at the 1 924 
and 1928 Olympics. 

In both world wars he 
served in the RAMC, and in 
peactirae worked in general 
practice, though he also quali- 
fied as a surgeon and was 
elected FRCS. 

During the Second World 
War : be was able to practise 
suigery for a time, while 
serving in Mauritius and 
Madagascar. 


He took a special interest in 
the treatment of sporting inju- 
ries. on which he published a. 
number of articles. 

His wife, formeriy • Irene 
Pickering, who was prominent' 
in the ATS during the last war. 
died in 1976. They had one 
son and two daughters. 

Mr Heinz Afoot Pinner, r a 
lawyer who fled Nazi Germa- 
ny and prevailed in efforts to 
win restitution for Hitler’s 
victims, died recently in Loi' 
Angeles at the age of 93. 

For his work, the- West 
German government last year 
awarded him the Grand Cross . 
of the Order of Merit 

Mr Emaimel Sayles, a banjo , 
player who was a mainstay oF 
virtually every Preservation^ 

Hall Jaz2 Band over the past. 
25 years, died at New Orleans -

Maxwell will 
reveal Games 
funding debt 


By Paul Martin 

Mr Robert Maxwell the lion, n 
Commonwealth Games Com- nese sh 
pany chairman, will today 
disclose to bis fellow-directortf DretKir j 
whether he has succeeded in 
staving off bankruptcy. ■ goods" 

According to his fellow ^hen t 
directors, Mr Maxwell is to entry tt 
announce a deficit exceeding. ... . 
£3.5 million, and will be ™ J 

■ demanding £2.7 million from 

the Government, the amount million 
he maintains was tost because dmwroi 
of the political boycott 

Negotiations between JJ® 11 ® 
Games representatives and Maxwe 
Scottish Office officials over a .' 

government rescue package aavera 
have been continuing in pri- & ven u 
vale. Mr Malcolm RifkindL Mr l 
Secretary of Slate for Scot- £250,(X 
land who has always referred {ties h 
to the. company's original jncludii 
pledge that the Games would ing in tl 
be self-financing, has not to- hospita 
tally ruled out involvement appeal 
once its affairs are wound op. brough 
. Contributions from the anotbei 

■ Japanese benefactor, Mr Ryo- from D 
ichi Sasakawa, are believed to printen 
amount to less than £1 mil- a Maxv 


lion, mainly from the Japa- 
nese shipbuilding industry. 


Hie original directors are 
preparing to criticise Mb' Max- 
well for “felling to deb'ver the 
goods" they say he promised 
.when he made bis dramatic, 
entry to the Gaunes in June. 

Mr Maxwell is expected to 
claim that he raised nearly £2 
million: . although feuow 
directors bdievea more realis- 
tic figure is £681,000. This is 
because £-1.3 million was Mr 
Maxwell's notional assess- 
ment of the value of the 
advertising and promotions 
given in his newspapers. 


Mr Maxwell paid out only 
L50.000 for the many farif- 


£250,000 for the many facu- 
lties his company enjoyed, 
including extensive^ advertis- 
ing in the main stadium and a 
hospitality suite. The national , 
appeal . . be launched had 
brought in only £258,000 and 
another £179,000 was raised 
from De la Rue, the banknote 
printers, which has a link with 
a Maxwell company. 


Queen brings a new 
warmth to Peking 


Continued from page 1 


been . much speculation. 
Would she ride in ared banner 
Chinese limousine? She would 
not, it was a vast black 
Mercedes. The red banner, a 
junior foreign ministry official 
confided, is an absolute glut- 
ton for oil 

The motorcade swept into 
the gathering dusk of the 
capital for the 10-mile ride to 
Diaoyutai state guesthouse No 
18, the most lavish accom- 
modation available, which 
workmen have been labouring 
frantically to restore in time 
for the visit. President Reagan 
and Mrs Thatcher stayed at 
the slightly inferior state 
guesthouse No 12. 

Few people lined the route, 
for it was the dinner hour, and 
advance publicity for the six- 
day visit has, m the normal 
Chinese style, been restricted 
to the barest of announce- 
ments. 


By stepping on to Chinese 
soil the Queen has done what 
no Russian Tsar or Japanese 
Emperor has ever done, al- 
though she has been preceded 
in recent years by King Juan 
Carlos, of Spain and Queen 
Maigrethe, of Denmark, and 
her visit is sandwiched be- 
tween a Soviet delegation and 
the Japanese Prime Minister, 
Mr Nakasone. 

But it is regarded by the 
Chinese as being of more 
importance than any of them. 
The Queen lays to .rest the 
ghost of Lord McCartney, who 
arrived in 1793 to establish 
the first British mission, re- 
fused to kowtow to the em- i 
peror, and iniritated two 
centuries of bad blood. 

With the Hong Kong treaty 
signed, the Queen arrived as 
the first British monarch since 
George II to have no designs 
on any piece of Chinese soil.

Nature notes 


Roads 


. Migrant- birds are now flood- 
ing in from Northern Europe. 
Brent geese are arriving on the 
east coast estuaries; their bark- 
ing cries mingle with the callsof 
the curfews and redshanks. With 
them are many wild duck, 
especially widgeon and pintafl- 
Both these species feed by up- 
ending; as their heads go under- 
water, the widgeon reveal the 
.silky white plumage of their 
undersides, while the pintail 
depress their long, spikey tail 
feathers. 


Many snipe are also crossing 
the North Sea, and spreading 
throughout the British Isles in 
quite, marshy places. When 
flushed they give a rasping cry 
and zigzag high into the air. At 


dose quarters, they reveal ex- 
quisite markings or cream and 
brown. Native meadow pipits 
are coming down from the 
moors to the river valleys and 
continental birds are coming in 
to join them. Our small breeding 
population of siskins is also 
being rapidly augmented fry 
immigrants. 


In the south, with dry, sunny 
weather continuing, trees are 
changing colour in a very patchy 
way. . Many oaks, ashes . and 
plane trees are still completely 
green. Some broken foxgloves 
have a few flowers on the 
drooping part of the stem; late 
buttercups and while clover still 
bloom side by side in the fields.

(Jonathan Miller wnies). 

v The dogs. collies, are 
trained to sniff out pwple 
buried beneath rubble and are 
considered ideal for rescue 
work in disaster areas. 

The work of the dogs vnllbe 

supplemented with an £S,uuu 
Bntish-mflde camera able to 
detect the body heat ofsurjT- 
vors trapped under rabble, 
and two sensitive instruments 
which can pick up itosounds 
of people trapped more than 

100 ft deep. . . 

One doctor, two dog ton- 
dlens, several firemen ana a 
number of amateur mountain- 
eers are included in the team. 
All arc taking unpaid time on 
from their jobs to help, said 
Mr Terrence Price, com- 
mander of the International 
Rescue Corps, a registered 
charity specializing m such 
operations. . 

Mr Price, a retired Gre 
service officer, said the team 
will arrive in San Salvador by 
raid-afternoon local time and 
is expected to remain in the 
country for 14 days. 

The prospects for success 
are excellent, Mr Pnre said. 
“The team has the skills, the 
equipment and the ability to 
work in these situations." 

H Salvador's Ambassador 
in London, Senor Mauricio 
Rosales, saw off the team at

Sunday 
racing 
looks a 



firm bet 


Continued from page X > 

Sundays now t and yesterday 

saw the running of the New. 
market Town Pune - but the 
outlawing of betting makes q 
impractical as a regular event 

What is still uncertain is 
how fer the Government 
would be prepared to go in 
legalizing Sunday betting. The 
crucial decision involves 
whether to allow high street » 
betting shops to open op in 
addition to permitting on- 
course betting. Bookmakers' 
credit account customers can 
already bet on Sunday sport- 
ing events. 

Genera! Sir -Cecil 
“Monkey” Blacker, deputy 
senior steward of the Jockey 
Cub, who is chairing a work- 
ing party on Sunday metat 
said yesterday while be 
voured legalizing off-cour* 
betting on Sundays, he would 
reluctantly accept oi K&tofe 
betting rather than having to 
Sunday racing at all. 

He was -“absolutely 
delighted" by the change, of 
heart within government dr. *' 
des towards Sunday, racing. 
“It shows that sense is begin-

UK firms 
launch 
trade drive 
with China 

From Alan Hamilton 
Peking 

Tlie largest British trade 
delegation to visit China 
is beginning two days of talks 
in Shanghai in the hope that 
exports will receive a boost in 
the slipstream of the Queen's 
state visit 

One hundred and ten 
businessmen led by Sir James 
Cleminson, chairman of the 
British Overseas Trade Board, 
and Sir Eric Sharp, chairman 
of Cable and Wireless, are 
anxious to take advantage of 
the good diplomatic relations 
between the two countries. 

Twenty five industrialists 
will host a “sea day” on board 
the Royal Yacht Britannia for 
Chinese trade officials. 

They will be attempting to 
sell British expertise in areas 
of priority in uiina's five-year 
economic plan: energy, trans- 
port, telecommunications, 
food processing and metal 
process plant 

It is hoped that about 12 
contracts will be signed for 
projects in the Shanghai area. 

: British exports to China are 
growing, from £160 million m 
! 983 to £396 million last year, 
and the indications are that 
they may top £500 million this 
year. 

Agreement on a £300 mil- 
lion soft loan has enabled 
British companies to win five 
big contracts, including the 
building of a power station 
and a steel tube mill. 

However, the Chinese have 
been disappointed at the slug- 
gish pace of trade in the 
opposite direction, with im- 
ports lb Britain last year 
reaching only £308 million. 

The Chinese, committed to 
a modernization programme 
which demands a great deal, of 
western technology, do not 
want to cut imports, nor do 
they want to repeal the experi- 
ence of Brazil and other Third 
World countries in amassing 
•impossible debt 
The Chinese are also dis- 
appointed that they have 
failed to attract a higher level 
of foreign investment despite 
the establishment of a number 
of joint ventures with western 
companies, including 
Piikington Glass and Avelmg- 
Barford from Britain. 

Potential foreign investors 
complain that the atmosphere 
in China is too restrictive, 
bureaucratic and expensive, 
with severe controls on the 

X triarion of profits — issues 
:h the British delegation 
intends to bring forcibly to its 
hosts* attention. 

Since China introduced its 
open door policy with the 
outside world in 1978. and 
since much of the central 
planning has been dismantled 
— production of commodities 
governed by central planning 
has dropped — the Chinese 
economy has been growing at 
about 7 per cent a year.

Lawson may sell 
shares in BP to 
finance tax cuts 


The Government is almost 
certain to sell off more shares 
m BP next year to help finance 
tax cuts. 

Legal advice available to the 
Chancellor. Mr Nigel Lawson, 
suggests that a BP share sale 
could be held without breach- 
ing Government pledges 
made at the time of the last 
sale in September 1983. • 

If the whole shareholding 
were sold it could raise £3,000 
million, enough to cut income 
tax by 3p in the pound. 

The prospert of a BP share 
sale could relieve what would 
otherwise be an increasingly 
difficult situation for the 
Chancellor at the time of his 
next Budget 

The Government owns just 
under 32 per cent of BP. The 
shares closed' at 685p on 
Friday night down Up on the 
day. 

The importance of a BP 
share sale is that it would 
provide a way of raising funds 
for the Government while 
cutting direct income tax. 

Concern about the level of 
pay settlements has reinforced 
the Government's inclination 
to cut direct taxation. Tt is 
jioped that lax cuts could 
induce workers to accept 
lower pay settlements. 

The BP share stake has two 
particularly attractive char- 
acteristics from the Gov- 
ernment’s point of view. The 
first, which has been rediscov- 
ered only relatively recently, is 
that it is not covered by any 
limitations on when the Gov- 
ernment can sell. 


By David Blake 

At the time of the last share 
sale, which raised just under 
£1,000 million, the Govern- 
ment said it did not intend to 
sell any more shares for the 
“forseeable future” Lawyers 
have now ruled that the 
“forseeable future” means 18 
months from the time of sale. 
However, no sale is Likely 
before the beginning of fiscal 
1987-88. 

The second attraction of BP 
is that it could be less conten- 
tious politically during what 
could turn out to be an 
election year. Although the 
Labour Party has -committed 
itself to renationalizing activ- 
ities such as British Telecom, 
it has made no pledges about 
BP sales. 

Indeed, the process of dis- 
mantling the stale holdings in 
BP began under the Labour 
Government in 1976 when 
shares were sold in an attempt 
to bead off the sterling crisis. 
Labour would thus have diffi- 
culty in opposing any further 
sales as an issue of principle. 

Mr Lawson and the Prime 
Minister, Mrs Thatcher, be- 
lieve that cuts in income tax 
are needed on economic and 
political grounds. 

Bui economic forecasts to 
be completed this autumn are 
expected to show there will be 
little room for any tax give- 
aways in the 1987 Budget, 
even after allowing for the 
£4,750million which the Gov- 
ernment already expects to get 
from selling off nationalized 
industries. Any BP sale would 


provide funds on top of these 
privatization proceeds. 

’There are two reasons for 
the Chancellor’s difficulty — 
the collapse of the oQ price is 
cutting the amount of revenue, 
which he receives from the 
. North Sea and, in spile of .his 
determination to cut taxes, 
many of his colleagues want to 
increase public spending next 

year. 

The “Star Chamber”, where 
spending ministers are called 
before senior Cabinet col 
leagues to explain their de- 
mands for more money, was 
postponed this year until after 
the Conservative Party con- 
ference. 

Although the Government 
is expected to stand by its 
pledge to limit the planning 
total for public spending io 
£144 billion in 1987-88, it is 
likely to do this only at the 
cost of trimming the safety 
margin contained in the 
contingency reserve: 

Because public spending 
next year looks as if it will be 
fairly high, the Chancellor 
would have little room for 
income tax cuts if he is to 
achieve his goal of keeping 
public borrowing down to a 
responsible leveL 

This is all the more inv 
porfant because the recent 
decline in sterling, which the 
Government ’ is prepared to 
allow to go further, will lead to 
increased export demand next 
year. There? is, therefore, little 
room for increasing domestic 
demand if inflation is to be 

kept under control. 


Building society to 
link up with broker 


By John Bell, City Editor 


Bristol & .West Building 
Society is planning a link with 
Laing A Cruickshank. the 
stockbroker, to provide a 
range of investment services 
through its 170-strong branch 
network. 

“We are delighted to be the 
first stockbroker to link up 
with a building society, es- 
pecially one of this calibre,” 
said Mr Nigel Wilson, a Laing 
& Cruikshank director. 

Mr Robert Linden, Bristol 
& West's general manager, 
would not discuss details of 
the plan ahead of a members' 
meeting which must be con- 
vened so that the society can 
use new powers available 
under the Building Societies 
Act. “Nevertheless, the prosr 
pects are extremely en- 
couraging,”he said yesterday. 

There will be two pilot 
schemes before the services 
are offered nationally. But if 
they go well members of the 
public will be able to use 
Bristol & West’s offices for 
their investment business as 


well as the society’s 800,000 
members. 

The link with Laing & 
Cruickshank, part of the Mer- 
cantile House Group, will be 
closely examined by other 
broking firms as it provides 
immediate access to a large 
number of retail outlets. 

Other brokers such as 
Quitter Goodison have been 
pursuing the much slower 
route of introducing retail 
sendees through their own 
branch networks. 

Mr Linden stressed that 
while he was convinced of the 
the benefits which building 
society investment offers, 
some people may wish to 
participate in equity invest- 
ment too. 

Threat care will be taken to 
explain the inherent risks of 
stocks and shares,” he said. 
“However, we believe this 
innovative development wifi 
be welcomed by both our 
existing and potential new 
membership.” 


Consumer watchdogs 
seek changes to Bill 

By Lawrence Lever 

The Consumers Association association is particularly con- 
is today calling for a series of 
amendments to the Financial 
Services BUI which it says will 
reflect its investor protection 
aims. 

The report .stage of the Bill 
begins in the House of Lords 
tomorrow and is scheduled to 
last three days. However, 
more than 500 amendments 
have already been tabled. 

Among the Consumer Ass- 
ociation's demands are: 

• A total ban on cold calling 
(unsolicited seDing) of all 
investment products. The 


cemed about cold-call selling 
of the new personal pension 
plans which will become 
available to almost everyone 
in 1988. 

• Full disclosure of commis- 
sions earned and expenses 
levied on sales of life insur- 
ance. The association wants 
potential purchasers of life 
policies to be given full and 
detailed information such as 
the “totality of the charges 
that have been made” before 
investors’ money is invested.

Doubts on 
profit 
share pay 

By Our Economics'. 
Correspondent ' : 

The Government has had a 
mixed response to hs Green 
Paper proposals for profit- 
related pay. The deadline for 
comments is Friday but al- 
ready there are indications 
that reaction has fallen short 
of the support the Chancellor 
was looking for. * 

Tax incentives for profit- 
Tdated pay are still likely to 
appear in. the next Budget, 
however, providing tax relief 
on up to 5 percent of total pay 
m companies which create a 
profit-related pay pool equiva- 
lent to 20 per cent of the pay 
bilL 

A survey just published by 
Towers, Perrin, Forster and 
Crosby, the management con- 
sultants. shows that 48 per 
cent of existing profit-sharing 
arrangements would be 
adapted to attract any avail- 
able tax incentives. 

Fourteen per cent were un- 
decided and 38 per cent said 
they would stick with existing 
schemes. 

But companies not operat- 
ing profit-sharing arrange- 
ments were cool about the 
proposals. 

Only 6 per cent said that 
they would definitely in- 
troduce them, while a further 
20 per cent said they would 
seriously consider doing so. 
But 39 per cent said they 
would not introduce profit- 
related pay, and 29 per cent 
said they were unlikely to do 
so. 

A government scheme with- 
out tax incentives would be 
even less successful. Only 10 
per- cent of companies said 
they would consider introduc- 
ing profit-related pay without 
tax incentives. 



Sheikh Ya m a ni ; Backing a new agreement 


Spot market awaits 
Opec quota ruling 

From David Young, Geneva 
spot market will indicated that if all the other 


The OH 
deliver its verdict os the 
Organization of Petit) learn 
Exporting Coontries’latest 
bout of procrastination today 
with trading likely to be at a 
total standstilL 
The major oil companies 
and refiners have until Thurs- 
day to nominate the size of 
actual deliveries they will take 
during November — “wet” as 
opposed to “dry” or “paper” 
barrels which can change as 
often as a dozen times a day 
among the spot traders. 

By then Opec hopes it will 
have a new quota agreement 
which will send prices through 
the SIS a barrel mark back 
towards its target of $17— $19 
a barrel by the end of the year. 

Although stocks at most ofi 
companies are high, other 
refiners and customers have 
been holding off buying for the 
past week while Opec meets 
and a new agreement over the 
next two days could lead toa 
flurry of buying in the market. 

Sheikh Ahmed Zaki Ya- 
mqi» 8, the Saudi oil minister, 
announced yesterday 
an intermediary that he is 
hopeful of a new agreement 
and is determined to work to 
achieve it 

The most likely outcome is 
that a new agreement wOl be 
hammered out which will be 
introduced from January 1 and 
the present outpm agreement 
of 16JB million barrels a day 
will be rolled over until then. 
This agreement is due to 
expire in two weeks* time. 

An extension of the agree- 
ment has been accepted in 
principle by 12 of the 13 Opec 
ministers, with the only oppos- 
ing voice coming from the 
Kuwait o3 minister. Sheikh 
Aii Khalifa, and even he has 


nations are serious about 
working towards a new agree- 
ment he would not oppose the 
present system continuing. 

A formal announcement of a 
continuation of the existing 
agreement would in itself rally 
the oil price, according to 
traders who have been closely 
monitoring the Geneva 
meeting. 

The announcement of a new 
quota system within the next 
few days would also help the 

Searevemaes andatso lead to 
increases in theshare prices of 
oil companies in London. 

Opec's technical advisers 
have now spent three days 
locked in discussions on an 
advanced new qnota system. 
Under it each member conn- 
try's national economic needs 
are assessed according to a set 
of agreed criteria based Hpon 
which a percentage of an 
overall production ceffing b 
allocated. 

The technical advisers will 
present their findings to a full 
ministerial meeting likely to 
be convened later today: 

The Opec conference presi- 
dent Bfiwanu Lnhman, the 
Nigerian oil mmistet; told an 
energy seminar in Rimini, 
Italy, yesterday that Opec 
member countries lost a total 
of $100 million a day because 
of unlimited production in the 
first half of this year. 

But, he said, Opec was 
determined in the long run to 
recapture a bigger share of the 
world oil market, some 30 per 
cent today from around 45 per 
cent a few years ago. 

He was bitterly critical of 
Britain for foiling to co-op- 
erate with Opec in keeping 
output down and prices stable. 


Rates pressure 
eases ahead 
of key speech 

By David Smith, Economics Correspondent 


Financial markets are set » 
hold off from pushing British 
interest rates higher until the 
Chancellor of the Exchequer's 
speech at the Mansion House 
on Thursday. 

But the absence of a 
convincing new message then 
could push the pound down 
further, and base rates sharply 
higher. 

A number of official figures 
are due out this week which 
will be unhelpful to Mr 
Lawson. They include the 
producer price figures today, 
-which are likely to show that 
manufacturing industry’s 
costs rose by up to 2 per cent 
last month because oF the 
pound's weakness. 

On Friday, the September 
retail price index is expected 
to show a rise in the annual 
rate of inflation from 2.4 per 
cent in August, to 3 per cent. 
The September public sector 
borrowing requirement to be 
published on Thursday, is 
expected to be about £3 
billion. 

An uneasy truce between 
the markets and the authori- 
ties developed at the end of 
last week after the Chanc- 
ellor's party conference 
speech. 

Having decided that a rise 
in base rates was not possible 
in the week of the Conser- 
vative Party Conference, deal- 
ers began to think it was worth 
waiting to see what Mr 
Lawson had to say at the 
Mansion House. 

The Bank of England, in 
refusing to allocate bills at the 
weekly Treasury bill tender for 
the second successive week, 
signalled its determination to 
hold interest rates steady. 

In his Mansion House 


speech a year ago. the Chan- 
cellor announced that he was 
suspending the target for ster- 
ling M3 

A sterling M3 target of 1 1 to 
IS per cent annual growth was 
reintroduced in the March 
Budget' But so far, the 
authorities have failed to hit 
it. 

Even so, the Chancellor is 
expected to retain the sterling 
M3 target because, unlike a 
year ago when there was an 
operational reason — the end 
to overfunding — for abandon- 
ing it, this is not the case this 
year. 

According to economists at 
Capel-Cure Myers, the Chan- 
cellor has several options in 
his speech. He could promote 
alternative monetary targets. 
He could move towards direct 
controls on bank lending or 
mortgages to rein back the 
growth of crediuHe could also 
announce a move to formal 
targeting of the exchange rate 
within the framework of the 
European Monetary System. 

However, the Chancellor 
will be reluctant to experiment 
wiib another monetary target. 
Direct controls on lending are 
out of step with Conservative 
philosophy. 

And, as the markets are 
aware, the final decision on 
the European Monetary Sys- 
tem rests with the Prime 
Minister. In any case, the 
Chancellor would be unlikely 
to use a set-piece speech to 
announce EMS entry. 

He is expected to focus on 
the balance of payments, 
countering some of the recent 
gloom, and to argue that much 
of sterling’s fall has been a 
direct reflection of the foil in 
oil prices. 


Pre-election boom ‘may 
lead to 10% inflation 9 

By Our Economics Correspondent 
The Government is success- Quarterly UK Macroeconomic 


folly engineering a pre-elec- 
tion boom, according to a new 
City forecast published today. 
But one result is likely to be 10 
per cent inflation soon after 
the election. 

The forecast, from a new 
monetarist model of the econ- 
omy constructed by MesseL, 
the stockbroker, suggests that 
the economy will grow by 4.1 
per cent next year, the prob- 
able election year. 

Inflation will edge up next 
year but. at 4.3 per cent, will 
not be seen as out of control. 
And the balance of payments 
wiQ be in .deficit but only by 
£1.1 billion, according to the 
forecast. 

In 1988, however, the prob- 
lems will .arise: The “core” 
rate of inflation in the econ- 
omy will rise to between 8 per 
cent and 9 per cent, and retail 
price inflation could touch 10 
per cent, Messel says in its 


Forecast. 

Much of the current strong 
growth in broad money, ster- 
ling M3, has been reflected in 
sharply rising prices for 
houses and financial assets. 

But “it seems implausible 
that we can continue to enjoy 
20 per cent a year increases” in 
share arid property values 
without similar price inflation 
in goods and services. 

The Government’s res- 
ponse should be to raise 
interest rates sharply now and 
to alleviate the dangers of 
inflation later, Messel says. 

However, the boom in pros- 
pect for next year may make 
the Government unwilling to 
take corrective action. “The 
cost of Mr Lawson's monetary 
boantiet may be 10 per cent 
inflation in two or three years' 
time, but the benefit will be 
rather vigorous growth,” 
Messel says.

Bates fears Saatcbi strategy 


By Jonathan Miller 

Executives of Ted Bates, the 
advertising agency purchased 
by Saarchi A Saatehi in May 
for £298 nullioa, expect their 
agency to lose its separate 
identity In a reorganization 
intended to stop the flight of 
clients and restore confidence 
in SaatchTs strategy of growth 


The reorganization is ex- 
pected to be announced this 
week or next, and could lead to 
job losses at Bates, they 
believe. 

SaatchTs purchase of Bates, 
which made the group the 
largest advertising agency in 
the world, was predicated on 
retaining separate identities 
for the two agencies. 

Maintaining a degree of 
separation was considered to 
be important to retain the 
confidence of clients, avoiding 
conflicts of interest in which 
the same agency represents 
competing cheats.

FSINESS AND FINANCE 


THF TIMES MONDAY OCTOBER 13 1986 


ANALYSIS 


No early divorce in uneasy 
union of trade and aid 


As marriages of conve- 
nience go, the uneasy alliance 
between the donation of aid to 
developing countries and 
efforts to promote trade be- 
tween Britain and those same 
markets has been a particu- 
larly fraught relationship, but 
one that is unlikely to lead to a 
separation for some time yet. 

Officials of the 24 member 
countries of the Organization 
for Economic Co-operation 
and Development gathered in 
Paris on Thursday to consider 
ways to force a dearer distinc- 
tion between aid and commer- 
cial subsidies. 

Under scrutiny were gov- 
ernment schemes, like our 
own Aid and Trade Provision, 
which allocates a proportion 
of the aid budget to finance 
specific British bids for busi- 
ness in developing countries. 

But while many govern- 
ments agree that aid and 
subsidies should be more 
clearly separated, discussions 
about ways in which to re- 
strain such funding are taking 
place against a background of 
countries foiling over them- 
selves in the race to secure big 
overseas projects with the help 
of subsidized credits and soft 
loans. 

In Britain passions run high 
about ATP, considering that it 
represents about 5 per cent of 
the total aid programme and 
accounts for less than 1 per 
cent of total exports. 

At best it is applauded as 
both a helping hand for the 
Third World and a support for 
British commercial interests 
which have to compete against 
the aggressive trade schemes 
of France and Japan. At worst 
it is seen as a thinly-disguised 
circumvention of inter- 
national trade regulations 
which leads to the subsidiza- 
tion of big companies and 
misuse of aid funds. 

Calls made for its abolition 
are followed by equally vocif- 
erous demands for a much 
bigger and more straight- 
forward commercial ATP 
budget But interest from in- 
dustry in aid support is high; a 
recent conference by the Over- 
seas Development Admin- 
istration attracted 200 com- 
panies. . , 

Perhaps a gloomier outlook 
for exports means that com- 
panies are increasingly look- 
ing for any help that is on 
offer. 

ATP was introduced in 
1977 as a facility to compete 
with other countries offering 
“mixed credits” to promote 
exports. It provides for at least 
25 per cent of a contract to be 
covered by a block grant, and 
for foe balance to be met by a 
subsidized loan backed by foe 
Export Credits Guarantee 
Department.

No wonder then that there 
is such a strong lobby from

set aside for ATP.

to come dangerously dose to 
advocating just foe sort of 
practice outlawed under the 
General Agreement on 
Tarrifis and Trade. 

While the scheme is with us 
at least one permanent change 
looks sensible — allowing any 
unused provision to roll over 
from one year to the next, 
given foe lumpy nature, of 
contracts. 

In terms of administration a 
report by Professor Beesley at 
foe London Business School, 
commissioned by foe Major 
British Exporters' group, said 
there were some Serious 
shortcomings” in the process 
of obtaining ATP. 

“The very least the British 
Govern mem owes them (the 
companies) is determination 
to remove, as for as possible, 
foe impact of departmental in- 
fighting on their bidding 
procedures,” he says. 

He suggests transferring the 
active management of the 
scheme to the Projects and 
Export Policy divirion of foe 
DTL 

Even more radical is the 
proposal to meet the concerns 
of the ODA and the Treasury 
(which has always disliked 
ATP) well before specific con- 
tract battles are joined. This 
would involve giving almost a 
blanket go-ahead to certain 
countries and sectors for ATP 
deals so that case-by-case 
developmental justifications 
would not be necessary. 

The ODA, for its part, 
blames companies for making 
their ATP applications too 
late in the day, and challenges 
industrialists to provide the 
evidence for any contracts lost 
because of ODA delays. 

It also maintains that foe 
demand does not warrant any 
increase in ATP, although for 
foe past three months it has 
been warning companies that 
no new ATP business can be 
accepted if it is likely to fall 
into the current year. 

It is a political decision 
whether ATP should work as a 
defensive or an aggressive 
measure, and it would be very 
political to decide to increase 
its budget. 

If it is to be defensive so that 
Britain cannot be accused of 
promoting the system, then 
companies should not initially 
put ATPon the table. And yet 
' <hat is increasingly what they 
say they must do to match - 
foreign offers, and this will 
increasingly mean that foe 
ODA is caught between two 
masters.

Bankers 
propup 
the bond 
markets 

From Maxwell Newton 
New York 

As appears to be typical 
these days, the bond market 
shied away sharply on the 
news that the producer price 
index for September rose (L4 
per cent, principally because 
of a 3.7 per cent increase In 
energy costs. 

The rise in meep costs was 
a belated reaction in the 
producer price index to foe rise 
in the price of erode oil from 
about $11 a baml at the low in 
July to the current level of 
about $15 a barrel. During 
September, November erode 
futures rose briefly above $16 
bat since then there has been a 
reaction which at times in 
September carried the Novem- 
ber contract down $14. 

The reaction of the bond 
market on Friday was neg- 
ative, with foe cash 30-year 
bond falling 21 3 ; at the open- 
ing, to yield 7-66 per rant 
This reaction, like so many 
of the bond market reactions 
since April, demonstrated an 
underlying irrational fear of 
imminent accelerating in- 
flation. 

The general commodity 
price indexes have stabilized 
since foe first week of Septem- 
ber, discounting earlier fears 
that the recovery in the 
Commodity Research Bureau 
index of futures prices from 
197 in early July to 212 in the 
first week of September repre- 
sented a sodden upsarge of 
inflation. 

Much of the rise was in any 
case doe to the boom In 
precious metals. 

Eventually, perhaps, foe 
logic of the price weakness In 
foe US will convince the mass 
of bond investors who are now 
all over to one side of the boat 
— the short side. 

There is an overwhelming 
sentiment among bond inves- 
tors in favour of staying 
shortThis is further exag- 
gerated by the big inflow of 
dollars from Japanese, Ger- 
man and Swiss action to 

inhib it any farther significant 
drop in the dollar against their 

currencies. 

Whatever they may say 
publidy, the central bankers 
of Japan, the US, Switzerland 
and Germany appear to have 
done "some sort of a deal 
indicating a willingness to tie 
their four currencies together 
Since the. first week, of 
August, the December yen has 
fluctuated narrowly in a range 
of 64— 65J> cents. 

The mark has been a little 
more unstable, but since foe 
beginning of September there 
appears to have been a strong 
tendency for foe central hank- 
ers concerned to hold the mark 

in a range of 49-50 cents. 

The Swiss franc has been 
kept within a narrow range 

appearato beSM»2 cents. 

The pound is not included. It 

has severe problems off keep- 
ing up with the yen, mark and 
Swiss franc. 

The attempt by the central 
bankers of Germany, Japan, 
Switzerland and the US to 
“narrow-band” their cur- 
rencies should initially at least 
be reassuring to the US bond 
markets. 

But over time, if the “narrow 
bands” do not reflect the 
realities of foe trade and 
payments positions of the 
nations comxrned, the result 
will be substantia] swings in 
the movement of funds. 


gilt-edged 


Technical bounce or 
a sustained rally? 


The gilt-edged market con- 
tinues to be dominated by tne 
behaviour of sterling, it 
seems unlikely that there can 
be a rise in foe market before 
sterling stabilizes, but once 
this happens foe potential for 
a sharp recovery is already m 
place. 

ITbe fell in ofl pnees was 
the i mme diate reason for the 
weakness of sterling in Janu- 
ary. But sterling fell by only 5 

per cent, and by the end of 
February had recovered haft 
its loss. It was soon realized 
that lower oil prices were 

good for bond markets world- 
wide. Yields fell in response 
to lower inflationary exp- 
ectations. 

The background to foe 
current sterling crisis is oii- 
ferenL Oil prices have re- 
bounded by 50 percent in the 
past three months — an 
important reason why the 
retail price index for Septem- 
ber (to be released on Fnday) 
will show the first rise for la 

months. _ „ . 

Even more important, ine 
overall fell in oil prices since 
the start of foe year has 
reduced the visible balance 01 
payments surplus on oil by 
more than £4 billion this year 
and. on current prices, by up 
to £5 billion next year. The 
current account as a whole is 
already in deficit, even if the 
August figures exaggerated 
the deterioration. 

It is, therefore, not surpris- 
ing that in his speech at foe 
International Monetary Fund 
foe Chancellor expressed foe 
view that “a lower real ex- 
change rate would be part of 
the mechanism that would 
lead to the necessary im- 
provement in the non-oil 
balance”. 

Sterling has already fallen 
on average by 15 percent this 
year and by more than 20 per 
cent against non-dollar cur- 
rencies. The exchange rate 
must be approaching the 
level at which the growth in 
foe volume of non-oil exports 
and erf 1 import substitution 
will be sufficient to bring the 
current account at least bade 
into balance by foe end of 
■ next year. 

The current account how- 
ever, is not the only part of 
foe balance of payments. The 
capital account has been in 
deficit since the abolition of 
exchange controls in 1979. 
and the most marked det- 
erioration has been in foe 
large portfolio outflow, which 
has averaged no less than £4 
billion a year. 

Perhaps the key question 
for gilts is whether foe 
combination of foe large fell 
in sterling and appreciable 
rise ia British yields is suf-

firient to reverse foe capital 
outflow and to attract foreign 
capital to Britain. . 

The present crisis is the 
result of a combination or 
factors. Firstly, in addition to 
fluctuations in foe oil price, 
there are political fears asso- 
ciated with a change in 
government which would 
have a starkly different eco- 
nomic and public expen- 
diture policy. 

Secondly, there is a grow- 
ing realization that there will 
be no further fell in British 
inflation; there will instead be 
a rise. Although foe Septem- 
ber money supply data was 
much better than foe mar- 
ket’s original expectations, 
sterling M3 is still growing by 
more than 18 per cent on an 
annual basis. Further, Mo, 
foe Government’s preferred 
indicator, is now growing in 
the upper half of its target 
range. 

Finally, today’s producer 
input price figures for Sep- 
tember are likely to show the 
run of negative monthly 
changes has ended, while 
Friday’s retail price index 
may be up £ per cent 
On the political front, the 
party conference season has 
done no harm to the Govern- 
ment. But, on fundamentals, 
sterling is no longer over- 
valued. Also, British yields 
have now become attractive. 

Ofi a short-term interest 
rate comparison, British rates 
are higher than those abroad 
by more than their average of 
foe second half of foe 1970s. 

One implication of foe 
exceptionally big portfolio 
outflow in the first half of this 
year, however, is that in the 
short term an end to the 
outflow because of higher 
financial returns in Bn lain 
would have a large impact. 

Indeed, the 2 per cent 
relative-rise in British bond 
yields since April strongly 
. increases foe gilt-edged mar- 
ket's attractiveness inter- 
nationally. It suggests that 
once sterling is seen to have 
begun to recover, foe gilt- 
edged market will rally. 

The core of the problem is 
whether sterling can be sta- 
bilizcd, even temporarily.

without a clear signal There 
are three obvious ones - a 
rise in banks' base rales, entry 
into the European Monetary 
Svstem and a positive out- 
come at the Geneva meeting 
of the Organization of Petro- 
leum Exporting Countries. 

It is dear that once sterling 
stabilizes, foe gilt-edged mar- 
ket will rally. But whether it is 
just a minor rally or some- 
thing more substantial de- 
pends on which international 
event or domestic policy 
initiative arrests sterling's 
decline. 

The market has already 
adjusted to 11 per cent base 
rates. However, if they rise to 
12 per cent or even higher, 
bringing the hope of a sub- 
sequent cut, the prospective 
market rally coukl be really 
substantial. 

An Opec accord leading to 
further rises in oil prices or a 
final Yi per cent point reduc- 
tion in the discount rate in 
Ore US, and possibly other 
countries, could stabilize 
sterling- . . 

But neither on its own 
would necessarily lead to a 
sufficient rebound in sterling 
to provide foe base for a big 
gilt-edged market rally. 

Sterling’s entry into foe 
EMS is becoming a distinct 
possibility, especially as it is 
is now down to a realistic rate 

against foe mark. It is a viable 

alternative policy option to a 
rise in banks’ base rates. 

Indeed, if Britain enters the 
EMS, the next move in base 
rates would be down rather 
than up. providing foe classic 
background for a major rally 
in foe gift-edged market. 

Once in foe EMS, sterling 
could become accident prone 
again ahead of the General ' 
Ejection as the initial eu- 
phoria evaporates. But at 
least at that time base rates 
and gilt-edged yields would 
be significantly lower.

Big Bang approaches and so

Financial Sendees BiU 
widely seen as provid % ai 
™«saiy legisfiiive &r£ 
wmk within which theCto 
win operate in the new era Sf 

Elation. ******* 

The object of “investor 
protection” is one so self- 
evidently desirable that any- 
one. particularly in the City 
daring to criticize steps beine 

25? l f ° S$ ieve ™ happy 

state of affaire risks possible 
imputations about his mot- 
,v ^®* h is therefore worth 
recording that some form of 
regulation is not only in- 
evitable but also probably des- 
irable. 

What is debatable is 
whether the legislation pro- 
posed, together with the 
Securities and Investments 
Board’s detailed rules, which 
will themselves have quasi- 
statutory authority if and 
when they are approved by Mr 
Paul Channon, Secretary of 
State for Trade and Industry, 
will in fan be “fit and proper”, 
(the SIB’s words) for the 
purpose for which they are 
intended. 

Some suggestions, for in- 
stance, the Board's proposals 
abandoning the idea of mak- 
ing all unit trust sales subject 
to a cancellation period, are 
impeccable. Others, like the 
Bill's provisions relating to 
cold calling (the practice of 
seeking to enter into invest- 
ment agreements following 
unsolicited calls), when read 
together with the SIB'S pro- 
posals, are either unworkable 
or unacceptable. Some de- 
tailed rules have not yet been 
published while others are still 
open for comment And some 
parts of the legislation are. or 
were when it was dealt with in 
committee in the Lords, 
incomprehensible. 

Baroness Seear, having 
pointed out that no one in the 
House, “least of all the Gov- 
ernment Benches”, seemed to 
understand the BiU, then 
asked what prospects there 
were of its being understood 
by the public. Lady Seear was 
being neither unfair to the 
Government nor unduly pess- 
imistic about their Lordships’ 
powers of comprehension. 
The House was being asked to 
deal with more than .400 
amendments to what was then 
a Bill with 177 clauses. For 
their part, the Government 
spokesmen conceded there 
would have to be Amber . 
detailed discussions on vari- 
ous parts of the BiU and 
further amendments before it 
reappeared in the Lords for 
the Report stage. 



Baroness Seear: No one understands BUI Sir Kenneth BerrflkCost will be high. 


It has been suggested that if 
those who are to be regulated 
are squeaking loudly, that 
must mean that both the DTI 
and SIB are proceeding along 
the right lines. This argument 
is difficult to sustain when the 
“squeaks” are to the effect that 
the legislation and rules can- 
not be understood, are un- 
workable, or only workable on 
the basis that the investor will 
end up paying more. 

What is profoundly worry- 
ing is that the objections are 
still being made when the Bill 
has reached the stage that it 
has, with Royal Assent ex- 
pected before the end of the 
session. Some 3S0 additional 
amendments, which their' 
Lordships will also have to 
consider this week, have not 
simplified the situation. 

The regulators are trying to 
achieve too much in too short 
a time. Having stated at the 
outset that the objective was 
control of the financial ser- 
vices industry by self- or 
practitioner-based regula- 
tions. the SIB has drafted and 
is continuing to draft, detailed 
regulations apparently aimed 
at forestalling or dealing with 
any situation which could 
conceivably arise. These reg- 
ulations will have to be re- 
flected in “equivalent” rules 
concocted by the so-called 
self-regulatory organizations 
(SROs). 

While the SROs wiD admit- 
tedly be policing their own 
members, 


co- 

be- 


while possibly more 
cooned, will probably 
worse off. 

Tbe justification for seeking 
to impose rules of such 
complexity on the industry is 
two-fold: 

• Because it does have such 
wide responsibilities under 
the BilL, tbe “delegated 
authority” (the SIB) would be 
foiling in its duties if it did not 
proceed on a “what if* basis, 
covering any possible problem 
that might arise, conceding 
that some of its solutions 


If passed in its current form, 
the Bill will enable Mr 
Channon to delegate many of 
his powers to the SIB. He will 
be able to do this only if he is 
satisfied with the Board's draft 
rules. The problem at the 
moment is that the Bill is itself 
in a confused and misleading 
state and the rules are open to 
serious criticism. In being 
asked to pass the BiU in its 
present form, in the light of 
tbe rules which have so for 
appeared from the SIB, Par- 

__ liament is being asked to make 

would be irrelevant and in- an act of faith which is simply 
appropriate to some parts of not justified by the cir- 


the industry but retaining 
them to deal with other parts; 
and 

• As it wiD be possible to be 
authorized directly by the SIB 
as an alternative to joining an 

‘No apology for 
the likely cost for 
the industry’ 

SRO. the SIB has to have 
appropriate rules “in place” to 
cover applications from any 
individual or type of business. 

Neither of these points jus-, 
tifies imposing general, com- 
plex rules on the industry as a 
whole. As the SIB implicitly 
recognized by publishing par- 
ticular proposals for conglom- 
erates and life assurance and 


unit trust intermediaries, it is 

thereby justifying possible to apply specific rotes . ^ct .of business ‘ roteT Such 


cumstances. 

White there may never be a 
“right time” to pass unpopu- 
lar legislation, this cannot be 
an argument for agreeing to 
legislation which would have 
fundamentally undesirable ef- 
fects. There is a strong case for 
a further pause for thought. 

There are, as it happens, 
other reasons for delaying this 
legislation. As Mr Robin 
Leigb-Pemberton. the Gov- 
ernor of the Bank of England, 
recently emphasized, there is 
bound to be an increasing 
need for international co- 
ordination between national 
.regulatory bodies. This may 
be easier to achieve in some 
areas than in others: an inter- 
national agreement on capital 
adequacy requirements, for 
instance, would probably be 
easier to arrive at than an 
agreement dealing with con- 


the claim of. being self-regu- 
latory, they will he doing so in 
accordance with rules im- 
posed from outside, and many 
of these mil be inappropriate 
and unnecessary. In some 
respects they will be so 
demanding as to be oppressive 
and, in tbe end, counter- 
productive: the investor. 


to specific sectors of the 
industry. 

The regulators have, how- 
ever. already travelled a long 
way down tbe “general” as 
opposed to the specific path. 
Any fundamental change of 
approach would involve 
months of work. What chance 
is there of this happening? 


desirable International co-op- 
eration would be more likely if 
the parties were able to enter 
into discusions without being 
irrevocably committed to 
their own detailed rules. It 
would surely make sense to 
“tiy out” in detail some of the 
British ideas on foreign gov- 
ernments rather than present 


The Geordie brainchild that is 
growing up to be a retail giant 


cO* 


The Secretary of State for 
the Environment, Mr Nicho- 
las Ridley, today officially 
opens Newcastle's Metro 
Centre, which is being her- 
alded as the most exciting 
shopping development since 
Brent Cross. 

When finished!! will he the 
largest retail and leisure com- 
plex in Europe and it -will rate 
among the top 10 in the world. 

It beasts a shopping mall 
half a mile long strrtcbing 
from Marks and Spencer at 
one end to Garrefoor at the 
other. There are 210 retail 
units in phases one and two, 
now being opened, and there 
will be a farther 90 in phase 
three, opening next October. 

Phase three will include 
cinemas and a fantasy land 
based on computers. Phase 
four, scheduled for 1989. will 
add hotels, an artificial lake 
for water sports and a DIY 
shopping complex. 

The £200 million centre was 
the brainchild of Mr John 
Hall, an exuberant Geordie 
builder who proudly boasts 
that tbe complex has been 
designed by people in foe 
north-east for people in foe 
north-east. 

Based on 100 acres offend 
formerly owned by British 
Coal on the south of the Tyne, 
the centre is situated un- 
promisingly between slag 
heaps and a power station. 

Mr Hall fed an uphill task 
finding backers _ for_ his 
scheme; bat the d esignation of

eventually persuaded devel-

skmers have fonded the 
complex and are in 50/50 
partnership with Mr Halls 
family ■ company, Camertn 
Hall Developments. 

On the retail front Mr 
Hall's big break came whan 
Marks and Spencer said d

Retaflers-aro confident that 
there will be enough trade to 
sustain sales, despite the 
blight of 20 per cent regional 
unemployment. They i® not 
have to pay rates midi 1991, 
but Mr Hall insists this is not 
the draw and retailers are 
felling over themselves to 
acquire space. 

The catchment area within 
half an hour V drive of New- 


castle nets 23 million people. 
There is a flourishing Mack 
economy in Newcastle and 
boatloads of Scandinavians 
travel over to shop. 

Marks and Spencer now has 
three stores in Newcastle — 
the Metro Centre store, a 
traditional high street store in 
the town centre and the 
Grainger market store, the 
smallest M&S still trading 
and a faithful preservation of 
the original share founded in 
1895. 

Initial scepticism 
has given way 
to enthusiasm 

Mr Hall -has spared no 
effort in going for quality. 
Even foe fire exits are de- 
signed as picture stories of 
retail developments of 
yesteryear. 

The emphasis on the family 
is strong — £400,000 has been 
spent on Christmas decora- 
tions and Santa's grotto win 
cover an astonishing 7,000 
square feet. A children’s vil- 
lage has a shop setting lemon- 
ade and sweets to easterners 
who sit in gfent teacups. 

This emphasis takes note of 
the modern-style family. 
Nappy changing facilities are 
provided in both men's and foe 
women's lavatories. 


Local arts and crafts have 
also been encouraged. 

Tbe -first six shops opened 
on April 29 and are serving 
about 100,000 customers a 
week. The next wave of open- 
ing should pash the number of 
customers up to 300,000 to 
' 400,000 a week, or 15 million 
to 16 motion a year. 

Initial scepticism has given 
way to entimsfesm. Mr Hall 

Says that hanks are pleading 
to lend money for phase four, 
which should create another 
2,000 jobs. The speed with 
which phases one mid two 
went up must have impressed. 
Rush & Tompkins, foe lead 
builder on the site, has created 
the Metro Centre out of 
nothing in 20 months. 

Cameron Hall Develop- 
ments win not stop at foe 
Metro Centre. Similar 


such a grandiose scale, are 
planned for Mfddlesborongb 
in Cleveland, Exeter hi Devon 
and for tbe Midlands. 

Mr Hall's partnership with 
the Church Commissfonezs 
will end in five years* time, 
when the Commissioners buy 
turnout.

Hall's foith is rewarded, be

them .with a fait accompli and 
asking them to fell into line. 

If the BUI does receive 
Royal Assent this session, its 
provisions and those con- 
tained in tbe SIB rules can 
hardly “bite” before next June 
at tbe earliest. It is difficult to 
see the argument for pressing 
through the legislation in its 
present state, unless it is to 
enable its Supporters to say in 
tbe event of some financial 
scandal that “ . .at least we 
have pasted the Financial 
Services Bill”. 

Whether the Bill's pro- 
visions would prevent scan- 
dals of the type most likely to 
occur is in feet debatal 
What is certain, is that if it had 
been law, it would not have 
prevented what happened at 
Lloyd's, which is exempt from 
the Bill. It is also hardly likely 
that any of its 200 clauses or 
any of the Board's regulations 
would have done anything to 
forestall the events at Johnson 
Maithey. 

Regulations in this area 
may be desirable; it is however 
vital that they shquld indeed 
be “fit for the purpose” for 
which they are intended if the 
investor is to receive any 
benefit from the increased 
costs that he will inevitably 
have to pay. As foe chairman 
of the Securities and Invest- 
ments Board has said: “ . .1 
make no apology for the likely 
overall regulatory cost for the 
industry. - .” 

Sir Kenneth Berrill put the 
likely annual cost of the SIB at 
£6 million, after start-up costs 
of £7 million. There will also 
be the costs of the individual 
SROs and an unquan tillable 
figure of costs incurred by foe 
City in conforming with foe 
new regulations. The case for 
investor protection may be a 
strong one; so is that for 
ensuring that the new regula- 
tions do protect foe investor 
and give value for money. 

It has been said that so 
much work on foe Bill and tbe 
draft regulations has already 
been dose and so many 
expectations raised that it 
would be undesirable, indeed 
impossible, to interrupt tbe 
process at this stage, similar 
objections were raised by the 
Goman generals at the start of 
the First Worid War when, as 
Ms ■armies marched Into Bel- 
gium. the .Kaiser suggested 
that they should either stop or 
alternatively turn round and 
attack Russia.

COMMENT 


Sterling points to the 
Chancellor’s dilemma 


Foreign exchange dealers operate by 
reacting to events. So do the analysts 
and dealers in bonds and the burgeon- 
ing variety of allied financial in- 
struments whose relative values 
depend on currency movements. It is 
no good expecting them to react 
phlegmatically either. Their jobs de- 
pend on generating business and that 
depends on keeping prices moving. 

Every economic statistic or policy 
pronouncement that flash es up on the 
information screens must be instantly, 
interpreted as a signal to buy or sell. 
And, since financial dealers are as 
intellectually lazy as most of us, their 
natural inclination is to judge these 
electronic news flashes as confirming 
existing trends and perceptions unless 
they clearly mark a break. 

This is not what tbe textbooks tell 
us about the beneficial effects of 
speculation. But the textbooks were 
written before judgement gave way to 
information codified into an instant 
never-ending stream of forecasts and 
statistics; before dealing profits be- 
came the stuff of corporate budgets 
and arbiter of corporate careers. . 

In this market for gambling in 
economies, the punter who follows 
the trend and adjusts his position 
minute by minute is more likely to 
make steady profits than the book- 
maker. Big risks are left to central 
bankers. 

Only in such an atmosphere could a 
thinking professional contend, as one 
did last week, that the price of sterling 
might not reach a natural, floor by 
itself in the markets. This is not 
fanciful The relentless rise of the 
dollar pursued these forces beyond 
economic realities. And that market 
process has destabilized world trade 
and payments on the grandest scale. 

The dealers now appear to need a 
rise in British interest rates — or a sur- 
prise fixing of sterling within the 
European Monetary System — to get 
them off the ftdok of selling the 
pound. 

The Bank of England, faithfully 
following Treasury orders to dampen 
or avoid a rise in base rates, knows 
this welL It has engaged in a messy 
combination of intervention, delay 
and stoic refusal to accept market rate 
rises in a game attempt to confuse, 
and thus defuse, the situation. 

Sterling has staggered from one 
“event” to the next. But the dealers 
are still hooked. Unless the Treasury 
capitulates, the saga will continue this 
week. There are plenty of mid-month 
statistics to chew on: producer prices, 
industrial production, average earn- 
ings, the public - sector borrowing 
requirement and the retail price index. 
Thanks in part to tbe ups and downs 
of oil prices, none are likely to deliver 
much good news about the British 
economy. Weekend speculation that 
the Bundesbank was bargaining 


continued support against EMS link- 
age may add to the pressure. 

The big event, however, is the 
Chancellor's Mansion House speech 
on Thursday, traditionally a guide a 
financial policy. If the dealers get their 
higher interest rates, they will not 
mind much what he says. But Nigel 
Lawson has an important dilemma to 
disentangle. 

His increasingly formal reliance on 
the exchange rate as the indicator of 
financial conditions has run up 
against the delayed but necessary 
adjustment of sterling to the halving 
of oil prices. The pound thereby lost 
value just as the 1979 oil price rise 
made it worth more. Adjustment is 
hard to manage when permitting a fall 
is seen as financial laxity. 

The correct response is to under- 
adjust the currency and take some of 
the strain in the rest of the economy — 
a practice incidentally built into the 
consensus realignment of currencies 
within the EMS. Domestic policy 
should never reinforce currency 
swings. Thai happened in 1979-81 
because the onslaught on inflation 
took precedence. There is no good 
reason for that to be repeated in 1986. 
But that is what is happening. 

The monetary indicators, if they 
mean anything, point to laxity; so 
does the boom in consumer debt, the 
deteriorating non-oil trade balance 
and the growth in average earnings. 
The prediction in L Messel's new 
monetary model that retail price 
inflation could reach 10 per cent by 
1989 looks extreme, but there is 
nothing in present policy to suggest 
inflation moving towards zero. 

The exchange rale confirms the 
trend. Sterling has moved beyond 
adjustment, not least in terms of the 
offset between lower oil prices and 
higher general import prices. It is 
being devalued in an inflationary way. 

A lower exchange rate to allow 
exports or lower imports to replace oil 
is one thing. Permissive devaluation 
to underwrite rising costs and faltering 
productivity is another. That is self- 
defeating for- an economy that must 
rely ever more on investment, ef- 
ficiency and product development to 
keep healthy. 

Mr Lawson should make this clear 
in word and deed. A stronger commit- 
ment to align sterling within the EMS - 
would help (though independent tar- 
get-zones would simply play into the 
^dealers’ hands). More vital is evidence 
of. strength of purpose tb pull in the 
reins at home whether through direct 
action to curb credit, tighter control of 
rising public sector wage settlements 
or higher interest rates.

C USM REVIEW ) 

Architects map out growth 
through interior design 


Green grows me property 
services sector. The rounding 
companies in this area of the 
market arrived in April with 
the debut of DY Dans, the 
first architectural practice, 
and Ernest Green, the first 
structural engineering 
consultancy. 

DY Davis shot off immedi- 
ately to a 60p premium where 
it has since stabilized, while 
Ernest Green started more 
quietly, trading around tbe 
120p issue price, but since its 
maiden figures last month has 
pushed ahead to I40p. 

Two new issues this week 
confirm tbe growing weight of 
this sector. Baker Harris 
Saunders, the specialist 
commercial estate agency, is 
offered for sale while Whinney 
Mackay-Lewis has been 
placed by De Zoete & Bevan 
with dealings on the USM 
starting this week. 


Whinney Mackay-Lewis is a 
J 00-year-old architectural 
practice based in the Gty 
which in recent years has 
concentrated heavily in the 
financial services sector and 
has been involved in many 
prestigious architectural 
commissions. 

Its record over the past five 
years has been patchy, reflect- 
ing a partnership and its fiscal 
structure over this period. But 


increasingly shorter life span 
as occupiers demand ever 
higher levels of specification 
and technological develop- 
ments require constant 
modifications to building de- 
sign. It is estimated that no 
less than two-thirds of tbe City 
loped 


of London will be redevel 
in the next 25 years. 

Whinney Mackay-Lewis in- 
tends to develop rapidly its 
interior design skills which 
its work during these years has currently only form a small 
included the development of proportion of its turnover, to 
many notable buildings in the cover hotels, restaurants. 


Cny, including those for 
Credit Lyonnais, Banquc 
Paribas, and Li fie. 

The Big Bang has sparked 
off a new phase of building 
development in the City as the 
new financial conglomerates 
have led the demand for new 
dealing rooms. 

Office buildings have an 


shops, and public sector build- 
ings as a complement to its 
architectural practice. The 
company is firmly committed 
to growth through organic 
expansion, believing that 
mergers through acquisitions 
are too difficult to achieve 
satisfactorily in “people 
businesses" that depend more 


on people than on assets. 

DY Davis is also keen to 
expand into the interior de- 
sign area, but is looking to do 
so through the acquisition 
route. Against the risks of 
architectural design (the costs 
of professional indemnity are 
rising steeply), interior design 
is low risk and cash-positive. 
But it is worth noting that 
Fitch & Co, the leaders in the 
quoted sector in retail design, 
has recently bad to make 
redundancies. 

Tbe number of companies 
in this mini-sector is likely to 
be swelled by farther flota- 
tions over the coming months, 
given tbe favourable reception 
accorded to the newcomers so 
far.

Not enough women on 
boards, says institute 


By Teresa Poole 


The lack of a significant 
female presence in the board- 
rooms of British industry is 
condemned as a ‘‘shocking 
waste of talent” by the In- 
stitute of Directors today. 

There are only eight women 
on the boards of Britain's top 
100 companies, says the IOD, 
and government figures show 
a 3 per cenr drop over the Iasi 
decade of women in man- 
agerial positions from 9.7 per 
cent in (975 to 6JZ percent in 
1985. 

There are also few women 
in senior public appoint- 
ments: not one of the national- 
ized industries is chaired by a 
woman. 

The number of women 


members in tbe IOD has 
jumped by half over tbe past 
two years but still accounts for 
only 4 per cent of its British 
members. So, in an effort to 
help more women reach the 
top levels of management, the 
IOD is running a conference 
later this month on “Women 
on the Board”. 

The IOD held its first big 
debate for women executives a 
year ago to highlight some of 
the more general barriers to 
women's progress. 

Hie organization wants to 
provide support for women 
executives and promote the 
cause of female directors . 
among its own, mostly male, 
membership.

Taxation 
on drinks 
maybe 
changed 

By Derek Harris 
Industrial Editor 
Customs and Excise is 
considering realigning tax- 
ation on alcohol after three 
months of talks with the 
drinks trade. Some changes 
seem likely and coaid be 
announced in tbe next Budget. 

The Wine and Spirit 
Association has made a strong 
bid to retain the status qno. lt 
Hants to save manufacturers of 
blended wines, such as British 
sharks, from a taxation upset 
which could mean higher 
prices or squeezed profits. 

Wines made fa Britain from 
imported materials account for 
about 10 per cent tf an British 
wine sales. 

Tbe issue is whether such 
drinks can still be blended 
from already separately-taxed 
ingredients, which carry dif- 
ferent levels of taxation be- 
cause of their varying 
s trengths . 

- If a duty were to be imposed 
on the Maided end-products, 
some would lose a priding 
advantage, leaving makers 
with tire option of r. 
prices or accepting lower 


being considered by Customs. 
WhSe it believes the present 
doty structure works ‘reason- 
ably wefr,” it is anxious to 
tackle some problem areas. 

One idea that appears to be 
gaining ground is for a tax- 
ation category to take better 
account of low-proof “cooler” 
drinks. 

“Coolers”, popular in the 
United Suites and Australia 
and making Inroads into the 
British market, are mixes of 
an alcoholic drink base with 
fruit juices and spring water. 

Taxing a “cooler” with a 
spirit base is straightforward 
as the doty on spirits is levied 
according to strength. 

. Bnt a wine-based drink mQ 
be taxed in the same way as a 
minim um 15 per cent alcoholic

The first in a 
two-part series 
on the Graduate 
Enterprise 
Programme 
and its graduates, 
by Beryl Dixon 

Students do not need degrees in 
business studies. All are eligible if not 
more than two years away from 
graduating.

promoters of the tourist cassette and

60 businesses, with a total «twhu>i 
turnover of £1 million and create 140 
jobs. The idea spread to the rest of 
Britain with the welsh prog ramm e now 
in operation at University College, 
Lampeter, English ones at Cranfield, 
Durham, and Warwick Business Schools 
— to be joined by one more, as yet 
unnamed, m 1987 - and Northern 
Ireland soon to have one at the 
University of Ulster. 

All of the universities and most other 
colleges are involved in the Scottish 
programme which is stiH directed from 


Students on the programmes are not 
necessarily brilliantly innovative, but do 
need to produce ideas to fill gaps in the 
market place. They also need an en- 
trepreneurial attitude — that is, “why 
not?” rather than “why?". 

They must be willing to have a go. 
“Yes, it’s risky, but it’s a different 
lifestyle. You are in control,’* said David 
Dutton, who was educated at the 
Harvard Business School and founded 
the PizzaJand chain. Mr Dutton gives 
presentations on the Cranfield course. 

They must also be full of enthusiasm 
and ready to work hard. The Graduate 
Enterprise Programme cannot provide 
these qualities but it can give their 
holders the skills and hacking to help 
turn the ideas into reality.

and Catriona Baker, who moved from 
history and philosophy to manufacturing 
and selling designer clothes. 

Cranfield numbers among its suc- 
cesses the geographer Tessa Finch, owner 
of a party planning operation, and 
Christine Wallis, a trained English and 
drama teacher who has jnst won her first 
export orders for designer knitwear to 
the US. 

Getting on to a programme is no 
walkover. Applicants face a tough selec- 
tion procedure, beginning with introduc- 
tory seminars, followed by an- interview 
with a programme counsellor and a two- 
day review course, and interviews with a 
selection panel from the Manpower 
Services Commission and the business 
schools. 

The Graduate Enterprise Programme 
is organized by an impressive partner- 
ship from the education system, public 
sector and private industry. 

T eaching is provided in the business 
schools; financial support comes from . 
the MSC; financial expertise by 
participating hank* and accountancy 
firms; with advice and support to 
students coming from companies. 

The Scottish programme's sponsors 
include, among others, the Bank of 
Scotland, Arthur Young, the Scottish 
Office, the Regional Councils, BP, and 
Coats Phton. 

Next year’s English programme mem- 
bers win receive advice from . 

Arthur Andersen and National West- 
minster, with app ro p riate support from 
BP for those with a product to develop. 

The structured part of the programme 
takes 16 weeks. About six weeks are 
spent at the business schools, inter- 
spersed with periods in conducting 
market research and contacting potential 
customers and suppliers. 


An MSC allowance of £40 is paid 
weekly during the course, accommoda- 
tion and food are provided during the 
residential periods, and up to £1,200 is 
available for market research. 

Some students may be eligible for the 
enterprise allowance when s tar t in g out 
on their own, but most have to raise the 
money themselves. 

The business school input con- 
centrates on the skills necessary to ran a 
successful business, particularly 
emphasizing finance and marketing 
with sessions taken by school staff, \ 
contributors from industry, former stu- 
dents and professional lawyers and i 
accountants. 

Communication and presentation 
skills are stressed - with particular 
reference to approaching ha^k managers 
anddients. 

Most students need to combine sev- 
eral sources of finance. Andy Ingleston, 
owner of Dockspeed road haulage com- 
pany, bought his first trade on hire

from the NatWest for his working 
capital. 

Britain is leading 
the way in a 
business initiative 

A vital-part of the Graduate Enterprise 
Programme, he said, was the help in 
preparing his business plan. His bank 
manager said that he had rarely seen one 

so thoroughly prepared. Other students 
make amllar comments and praise the 
accounting and marketing sesswos 

“It gave me credibility with the bank." 
“It got me off the ground. The finance 
and the business plan were invaluable." 
“For me, the marketing know-how was 
cr ucial " 

Programme or gan izers are hoping to 
expand the scheme in the future. In the 
meantime, the Scottish Enterprise 
Foundation has been approached for 
advice from overseas, with the result that 
similar initiatives are being taken in 
Europe; Australia, and the US. 

Isn’t it nice to know that Britain is 
leading the way in a business initiative? 

Publicity material about the 1987 
programmes is bong sent to all univer- 
sities, polytechnics and colleges. Stu- 
dents should be able to get booklets and 
view a programme video at their careers 
offices. 

Alternatively, information may be 
obtained from Bob Hale, Stirling 
University, or Professor Paul Burns, 
Cranfield Business School (Cranfidd 
Institute of Technology, Bedfordshire). 
Next week. Beryl Dixon talks to three 
graduates of the Enterprise Programme

Judge erred over 
custodianship 


In re M (a Minor) • 

Before Lord Justice GBdewril 
and Sir David Cairns - 
[Judgment given October 71 

A decision riot die natwal 

parents of a young child were 
not unreasonable in withhold- 
ing their consent to heradoption 
because they had agreed to 
prospective adoptive parents 
having custodianship ofherwas 
wrong in law. It followed that a 
custodianship order made' 
under the provisions of Part IT 
of the Children Act 1975 (in 
force since December 1985) 
could not lawfully have been 
made. 

The Court of Appeal-so held 
in allowing an appeal tv the 
applicant raster parents from 
the decision of Judge. Bush, at 


unreasonable. The 
lather's attitude, he found, was 
-that foster parents of normal 
intelligence and maturity should 
fed happy to have a custodian- 
ship order and that it would 
suffice to secure the chucTs 
welfare without causing un- 
necessary distress to the natural 
parents". 

That attitude, the judge ron- 
duded. was “within the ambit ot 
a reasonable parent” and pre* 


d tided him from dispensing 
with consent. With greater diffi- 
culty the judge came to the same 
conduaon in respect of the 

It was dear that the judge had 

fallen into error. By finding that 
the consent of the natural 
parents should not be dispensed 
with he thereby removed the 
basis OQ which section 37 could 
operate. He therefore had no 
power to make the custodian- 
ship order. ' 

What then followed? Both for 
the applicants and for the local 
aathomy it was argued that the 
Court of Appeal should decide 
for itsdf the issue of whether the 
consent ofthe natural parents be 
dispensed with, that the court 
should indicate whether - it 
considered adoption or 
custodianship to be the more 
appropriate order and that it 
should then remit the cas e h> th e 

county court to make the proper 

order after the applicants had 
been beard. 

The natural parents argued 
that the issue concerning con- 
sent was unaffected by the 
judge's error; consent, it was 
said, was a matter of discretion 
for the judge and thus the 
appellate court should not inter- 
fere unless, within the ambit of 
GvG 01985] 1 WLR 647), the 
judge was dearly wrong. 

dearly the judge had no 
power to make the custodian- 
ship order. His decision not to 
Hicppncp with - the natural 
parents* consent to adoption 
had ri? p f TMted on the view that 
he did have power to make the 
custodianship order. It followed 
that the judge’s decision regard- 
ing consent was based on an 
erro n eous view ofthe law. Thus 
the court was free to reconsider 
that decision. 

The proper test to decide 
whether the withholding of con- 
sent was unreasonable had been 
referred to in a number of 
decided cases. 

Here the natural parents were 
not capable of caring for the 
child — they agreed about that. 
They had made it clear that they 
did not envisage a custodian- 
ship order being revoked or 
their applying for access. The 
child had had no contact with 
the natural parents as such. She 
had no recollection of them. 

How far, if at aD. was the 
prospect that a custodianship 
order could be made as an 
alternative to adoption relevant 
to the court's consideration of 
whether consent should be dis- 
pensed with? 

At one stage, his- Lordship 
said that he considered that it 
was not relevant az all. That was 
wrong. But these applicants had 
not applied for custodianship. 

Although in theory section 37 
envisaged the possibility of a 
custodianshi p order being made 
even though applicants did not 
wish it, in practicea court would 
be unlikely to make such an 
order against the applicants' 
wishes. 

Thai would not be in the 
child's interest. Custodianship 
was only relevant in considering 
the consent issue subject to the 
caveat that prospective adopters 
might or might not decide that 
ft rotrvtiankhi p was flit acceptable 
alternative. 

On the instant facts the case 
for saying that the natural 
parents' consent to adoption

Mr Roger M. Thomas for the 
applicants; Mr Martin J.. Wood 
for the natural parents; Mr D. 
Peter Hunt for the local 
authority, Kirklees Metropoli- 
tan District CoondL 


LORD JUSTICE GLIDEWELL 
said that the applicants, the 
prospective adoptive parents, 
appealed against Judge Bush's 
decision that the consent of die 
natural parents to the adoption 
of their daughter aged three 
would not be dispensed with 
under section 12 ofthe Children 
Act 1975 and that a custodian- 
ship order under Part 11 of the 
Act be made vesting the legal 
custody of the child in the 
applicants. 

The applicants, after one 
year's fostering of the child with 
the support of the local 
authority, bad applied to the 
county court -to adopt her. The 

natural parents had refused to 
give their consent to the adop- 
tion. 

Until December 1985 if natu- 
ral parents did not consent to an 
adoption ratter being made, the 
question whether their consent 
could be dispensed with was 
normally the main issue that a 
court had to decide. 

However, there then came 
imo force Part II of the Act 
introducing the concept of 
custodianship into the law. Sec- 
tion 33 dealt with the malting of 
custodianship orders. 

These applicants could have 
applied under section 33 for 
custodianship. They bad not 
done so. They sought an adop- 
tion order. 

But section 37 made pro- 
vision for a court hearing an 
application for adoption or 
guardianship to make a 
cust odianshi p order instead. It 
was by that route that Judge 
Best came to make the order in 
favour of the applicants for 
r uyipriianship with 00 access 
granted to the natural parents. 

It was . a pre-requisite of 
section 37 that the requirements 
of section 12 were satisfied: thus 
section 37 could only come into 
play if either the namral parents 
consented to adoption or if the 
court decided that their consent 
should be dispensed with. 

In foe instant case the judge 
held that the natural parents' 
refusal to consent to adoption 
was not unreasonable so that 
there were no valid grounds for 
dispensing with it. 

The effect of a c u stod i a n ship 
order was to vest in the custodi- 
ans tiie powers and impose on 
them the duties that would be 
those of a parent granted cus- 
tody following divorce. 

It differed from adoption in a 
number of ways: it ter min a ted 
when the child attained 18; 
before that time it might be 
revoked; it entitled the natural 
parents during its existence to 
apply for access to the child. So, 
unlike adoption it did not break 
the ties between child and 
natural parent 

Indeed a reason for hs in- 
troduction was to deal with 
cases where for the foreseeable 
future the custodian should 
bring up a child with the 
possibility of any future resump- 
tion of the bond between the 
child and the natural parent 
being preserved. • 

The disadvantages of 
custodianship were that it in- 
evftahly resulted in a lesser tie 
between child and custodian 
than did adoption. The break 
with the natural parents was not 
complete. 

Judge Bush held that the 
natural parents' refusal to give 
consent to adoption was not 


should be dispensed with was 
very strong indeed. The views of 
the applicants as to custodian- 
ship were not known: they had 
not been heard. That matter 
could not weigh heavily. 

The custodianship order 
should be set aside and a 
direction given that the consent 
of the natural parents to adop- 
tion had been unreasonably 
withheld. The matter should 
thus be remitted to the judge to 
deride whether an adoption 
order should be made.

Partners’ removal costs 
not tax deductible 


MacKinlay (Inspector of 
Taxes) v Arthur Young 
McClelland Moores & Co 


Before Mr Justice*/ melon 
[Judgment given July 31] 

Contributions by a laige pro- 
fessional partnership towards 
the domestic removal expenses 
of its partners who were re- 
quired to relocate their place of 
work were not deductible in 
computing the taxable profits of 
the partnoship. 

Mr Justice V melon so held in 
a reserved judgment in the 
Chancery Division allowing an 
appeal by the Crown from a 
derision of the special commis- 
sioners that expenditure of 
&L568 in respect of two partners 
made by the partnership, Arthur 
Young McClelland Moores & 
Co, was an allowable deduction 
for its accounting period ending 
April 1980. 


Mr Alan Moses for the 
Crown; Mr Andrew Park, QC 
for the partnership. 


MR JUSTICE VTNELOTT 
said that the policy of the 
partnership, a firm of chartered - 
accountants with offices 
throughout the country, was to 
assist with removal expenses of 
partners and employees it re- 
quired to move from one office 
to another. 

The commissioners held that 
the £8.568 provided “no scin- 
tilla of personal benefit" to the 
two partners and was incurred 
by the partnership wholly and 
exclusively for the purposes of 
its profession. 




equestrianism 





They had. however, directed 
iheir -minds to the wrong ques- 
tion. The-purpose of the partner- 
ship in making the payment was 
not in doubt: indeed the Crown 
accepted that such payments 
when made to its employees 
who were required to move were 
. tax deductible. 

The question was whether 
expenditure which would not 
have been deductible if incurred 
by an individual trader was 
deductible if incurred by part- 
ners in pursuance of a policy 
designed to advance the in- 
terests of the firm. 

The argument for the partner' 

ship was that in the case of a 
large partnership the interests of 
the partners could be severed 
from their personal interests 
and that a benefit to a partner 
resulting from expenditure in 
curred in pursuance of partner 
ship policy could be regarded as 
incidental to the achievement of 
that purpose even though in the 
case of a sole trader it could not. 


That argument was unaccept- 
able. Decided authorities did 
not support the proposition that 
expenditure that in the case of 
an individual trader would fall 
to be treated as serving a dual 
purpose, could in the case of a 
large partnership be treated as 
incurred wholly and exclusively 
for the benefit of the firm as a 
separate entity, the personal 
benefit of an individual partner 
being treated as a mere in- 
cidental effect of the expen 
dhure.

Horse with its tail np: Toweriands Anglezarke with Pyrah 


The right course 
for Pyrah’s 
veteran horse 


By Jenny MacArthor 


Malcolm Pyrah finished the 
Horse of the Year Show at 
Wembley on the same trium- 
phant note with which he began 
when he and Toweriands 
Anglezarke won Saturday 
night’s Everest Double Glazing 
Grand Prix for the second time 
in three yeats. The pair, the only 
ones to go dear in the final 
jump-ofu relegated John 
Whitaker and Milton, his Cal- 
gary Grand Prix winner, to 
second place and Nick Skelton 
on Raffles Airbaumeio third. 

It is remarkable how often 
these three riders, who were in 
the team who won the silver 
medal at this year's world 
championships, finish among 


the letters, particularly over the 
demanding courses of a grand 
prix. 

In fact Pyrah, who started the 
show in a blaze of publicity over 
the £16,000 Range Rover he 
[intimately laid claim to after 


the British team on next 
month's North American tour, 
ended by being well satisfied 
with his week, Geoff Biilington 
thought no less of his. Having 
already won the Foxhunter and 
Grade C championships on tus 
10-year-old Edisford Bridge, he 
finished in style on Satmtfay by 
taking the Country Life Cup on 
Tony Crofts' JR. a lO-ycar^old 
gelding by the Cleveland Bay 
stallion Mulgrave Supreme, 
originally bought for his-owner 
to hunt. 

Nine out of the 13 big 
international classes fell to Irish- 
bred horses — the most emotive 
win being John Whitaker’s on 
Ryan's Son in the Lombard 
Silver Spur. The old horse. 


showirm scant regard for his 18 
years, finished nearly three sec- 
onds ahead of the runners-up, 
Jeff McVean on Furst Z. 

While Wembley can look 
forward to seeing Ryan’s Son in 
action again — he will only be 
retired when he stops enjoying 


winning Monday’s Raffles Clas- 
sic; said he still thought of that 
opening competition as being 
his “grand prix”. He had won 
the car after an appeal to the 
organizers and that, together 
with the £3,000 first prize, 
netted him more than four times 
the amount he won on Saturday. 


retired when he stops emoying 
his jumping — two great horses 
took their final bow this week. 


Bui money aside, Pyrah was 
delighted at the way his 
magnificant 14-year-old gelding 
had negotiated Saturday’s diffi- 
cult jump-off course designed by 
Alan Oliver. His Irish gelding's 
habit of jumping to the right 
gave him some vital extra room 
for the tricky distance coming 
into the last upright fence which 


caught out four of the other five 
inthe jump-off— Skelton, West 
Germany's Paul Schockemoble 
on Deisier. David Broome on 
Phoenix Park (the latter just 
touched it but the pole fell) and 
Janet Hunter on Li snam arrow, 
who hit the last two fences. 


The first was Ginny Lens's 
Priceless, the world, European 
and national three-day event 
champion, who retires to go 
hunting. 

The second was Keith 
Lux ford's outstanding heavy- 
weight cob Grandstand, who 
won his fourth Wembley 
championship on Saturday. AP 
ter his final lap of honour Ifc the 
floodlit arena his rider, Roger 
Stack, dismounted and led the 
I O-ycar-old gelding from the 
arena as his own tribute to & 
remarkable horse.

leaving much to scrutinize 
and work on when the selec- 
tors sit down to make their 
critical analysis. 

1 ,y > S l1 Japm .fcd for 
a»mt 40 minutes in this 
match sponsored by Toshiba, 

they were never allowed to 
exert any element of control. 
For a long time England filled 
to do so either and the 
consequence was a set-piece 
dominated game riddled with 
orora, r eflected by the high 
proportion of penalty awards 
to each side: 17 to England, 1 5 
to Japan. 

But two significant features 
finally emerged: England dis- 
covered the capacity to score 
tries after their confidence had 
been bolstered by taking the 
lead nine minutes into the 
second half and they defended 
in depth so well that Japan’s 
late rally, which has become 
something of a hallmark, 
never materialized. How ft 
ile a thing confidence is; for _ 
the preparation no >«mn as 
untried as this England (me 
could be certain of perfor ming

conditions. - 

Richard Hill, their ra p»ain ; 
ascribed their indifferent first 
half to over-eagerness, the 
desire to impress at the slight- 
est opportunity a crowd 
swelled by bright sunshine to 
nearly 20,000, who were at

the 


England rammed home four 
more tries, all but one of them 
coming in the same right-hand 
corner at the south end, which 
allowed Rose to put on a 
remarkable display of goal- 
kicking. 

Rose's kicking and Eng- 
land s domination of the 
iineout — where Bain bridge 
was outstanding — were the 
two bedrocks of England's 
game. The Harlequins full 
back took over after Barnes, 
wbo kicked well out of hand, 
had missed three penalties. 
Rose responded with an 100 
per cent record; if in the future 
he can come close to that 
achievement with consis- 
tency, it wifl mean forgiveness 
of the sort extended to Dusty 
Hare for the occasional defen- 
sive indiscretion.

Salmon from around his an-

amendments to the squad (to 
be announced today) which 
will go to Portugal to train at

Maesteg are, in toms of the 
profit and loss account, the 
leading Welsh club ; of the mo- 
menL With this victory by a 
goal, two tries and three pot- 
atoes to a try and fom penalties 
they have won eight of their nine 
games so fir. Swansea, in 
brighter focus than the Llynfi 
Valley dub. are also riding high, 
having lost one and drawn one. 

In Brian Nicholas, Maesteg 
have a coach who, despite their 
present successful start to the 
season, has bis mind set firmly 
on future because that is the 
only way he sees that a dub like 
Maesteg can survive; 

The present winning streak is 
a bonus; he was not aiming for 
success so soon. To confirm his 
point, Maesteg had made nine 
changes, none of them forced on 
them, from the learn which beat 
Pontypool the previous week. 
All the players inthesquad must 
get their turn. 

Moreover, eight of his team 
on Saturday were 21 or under. 
For such a derby as this, it might 
have been thought risky. But 
although leaving things a bit 
late, this young team rewarded 
the coach’s confident in them 
by scoring two tries in the last 
five minutes to give them 
victory. 

The game had a good opening 
10 minutes and a thrilling spell 
at the end but the hour in 
between was a drawn out, stodgy 
affair. There was poor handli n g, 
badly directed kicks and very 
little that could be described as 
flowing. . , „ . , 

It could have been the faun in 
the delays in the scrums or the 
stow release at ruck and maul; it 
could be that Cornelius and 
Watts were well matched 
against Davies and Scott in the 
Iineout and that such possession 
that emerged, so keenly con- 
tested, put the scrum halves 
under pressure. Whatever the 
reason, neither Lewis for 
Aberavon nor Jones fo r th e 
visitors, apart from a good break 
each, played with any persua- 
sion at stand-off. 

Among a plethora of pen- 
alties, mainly for transgressions 
at tire rucks, three attempts at 
wwi by Alun Davies were 
missed for Maesteg and Lewis 
missed one for the home team. 
When Maesteg were attacking 
Matthews intercepted close to 
his own line for a long run to 
score his side's only try- Patdoe 
and Lewis exchanged a penalty 

each before Mark Jones scored a 

try to put things all square at 
half-time. , 

The second half was even less 
colourful than the firat with 
Lewis kicking three penalties to 
P&idoe's two until Patdoe en- 
livened matters with a scythmg 
run to intercept James's knife 
throw into the iineout to set up 
Thomas for the try. Alun Davies 
burrowed his way through a 
melfe of forwards for tei ay, 
which was converted by rarooe.

■ Defending an unbeaten run of 
success can be a nerve-racking 
business, as s np p oita s of the 
north London dull Saracens, 
found to fhdr cost cm Saturday. 
The home side were deariy the 
better outfit Their pack were 
. more compact and mobile their 
bodes were, initially at loot, 
more agile and imaginative, but 
when they failed to turn their 
superiority into points, doubts 
and anxieties about preserving 
their record stifled initiative. 

Saracens deserved to win by a 
much wider margin than one try 
and two penalty goals to one 
penalty goal hat they wifl be 
fortunate to achieve even that 
measure of victory in their next 
John Smith's Merit Table B 
matches, against Waterloo and 
Sale, if they perform in such a 
jittery fashion. 

Their sixth victory in a row 
keeps them at the top of the 
merit tables and it looked in the 
first 20 minutes as if they were 
going to overwhelm the Irish, 
who were depleted by repre- 
sentative calls and injuries to 
key players. 

with Keay, their splendid 
captain, directing operations 
well and Howe dominating 
proceedings in the lineouts ana 
mauls Saracens produced some 
delightful attacking moves 
which stretched the visitors’ 
defence to the limit in the 
opening exchanges. Only one 
crunching tackle by the Ireland 
foil back, MacNeilL prevented 
one early try and the lack of 
penetration at a vital moment 


One of die odd thing s about 
the game of ru gb y — and there 
are many — is the total lack of 
s y mpathy between the spec- 
tators and the players. Certainly 
this is the case when England 
play. On Saturday, within five 
minutes of the start, 
were being booed for the tech- 
nical options they took and 
Japan roundly cheered for their 
own derision to ran the ball and 
ran it again. 

Eagtaud rugby players have 
established a tag tradition of 
boring play. The safe, un- 
spectacular option' is chosen 
tfane and time again: the kick for 
the forwards, scarcely ever the ' 
long, spinning pass to those 
fancy fellows on the wing who 
always manage to make their lot 
last for three matches in a row. 
They call it playing to your 
strengths. 

The spectators, at 

Twickenham hate it. They want 
to be thrilled by. speed, by 
intricate p as si ng; by expkMHve- 
.movement Why do they go to 
watch Enghad, : then? Far on 
Saturday their first action was to 
boo England for locking rather 


MW*** 

t .... 


after another sweeping three- 
quarter movement stopped 
another. 

Saracens became edgy ai the 
lack of a breakthrough. Rudliog, 
their promising stand-oft began 
to nay on high kicks — badly 
directed at that— msteariof the- 
unite passing which trad set up 
the early chances, and Keay. 
opted tor a tighter, lea 
adventurous approach. 

Tapped penalties were^J*? naming a penalty, and 
spurned for the more mundane second was to cheer the 
consideration of locking fin- 
position. It was a policy that 
produced no points for Saracens 
in the second half and almost let 
in the Irish for two break away 
tries. 

The Exiles were content to 
contain Saracens with well 
tested spoiling tactics, relying on 
the powerful kicking of 
MacNafl and Kuhn to set up 
their attacks. 

Saracens took the lead with 
two penalty goals by Smith and 
a try by their number eight, 

Adamson, after their stronger 
pack had once again poshed the 
Irish forwards back at a scram, 
this time from five metres out 
just before the intervaL 

MacNeiU kicked a 
goal midway through the 
half; and the Irish sensed they 
bad a chance of snatching more 
points but Saracens were mucb 
too wily for them.

Japanese for electing to rmt one. 

It must be fr ustr a t in g for the 
England players: they are only 
trying to win a game of rugby by 
the brat means they can think «£ 
Perhaps it is a shame they can’t 
think of anything more amusing, 
or more effective. But (hey are 
all amateurs, more or Jess, as it 
were, and Dick Greenwood, the 
former England coach, has spo- 
ken with great efoqneace about 
“the amateur's inalienable right 
to play like a pillock.” I think it 
can be said with some fairness 
that this option was exercised 
folly on Saturday. 

The Japanese have been up 
against it on this tow, as they 
will be oil every tour they jnake . 
.here. If is a matter of sizejnod 
weight “We have atlast found 
book 6ft 3ta lodes, but now yoar 
locks are 6ft 8m," Shiggy Kino, 
Japan’s honorary tonr manager, 
said. They cannot win by shov- 
ing; they are therefore con- 


demned for ever to please the 
English crowds by running and 
to provoke English crowds into 
booing their own boys. 

Without weight, the Japanese 
most chuck the ball about. 
Without height, they must use 
wOd. imaginative ploys at the 
Iineout. Without bulk, they must 
tackle like rat traps: to see the 
bulbous Chflooti stopped as if 
running into a small bat solidly 
constructed brick wail was one 
of the afternoon's many 

pleasures. .... 

For it was a fine afternoon of 
rugby, for English supporters. 
The ball was chucked about with 
vigour, there were plenty of 
reasons to abuse their own team, 
the game was approached with 
some e nt erprise by Japan, and 
the underdogs came dose to 
glory. England struggled until 
very late. 

In fact, I propose to expunge 
the last 20 minutes of the matdi 
from my consciousness: . the 
Japanese, with Bair and enter- 
prise, won the. first half and 
more or less held their own in 
the third quarter. Then at last 
England, as a desperate last 
resort, threw the ball about 
themselves, and went whizzing

Irwin back for Ireland

David Irwin, tire Ulster cap- 
tain, is bade in the international 
fray. Irwin, who won the last of 
bis 16 caps against Wales in 
1984, has made a remarkable 
recovery from ligament damage 
to his right knee which sidelined 
him for nearly 12 months. 

The 26-year-old Belfast doc- 
tor was named yesterday in a 30- 
man panel, which has an old 
familiar ring about it, to attend 
squad training at Lansdowne

Such is the power of tradition 
that victory for the visiting team 
at Kjngsholm continues to be a 
prize worth having, even in 
these barren times for Glouces- 
ter rugby. Harlequins won by a 
goal, a try, a dropped goal and a 
penalty goal to a try and two 
penalties on Saturday, and were 
more than six points better than 
the Cherry and Whites. 

Gloucester, champions of the 
John Smith's merit table A Iasi 
season, have lost their three 
table matches so far this season 
— and Bath and Leicester are to 
come in the next lew weeks. 
Neither they nor Harlequins 
were at foil strength but Harle- 
quins played with enough 
conviction to conceal the fact, 
notably behind the scrum. 

Dent was the cleverest runner 
on the field. Hunter looked .a 
dasher, and Fletcher and 
Woodhouse made a fluent 
partnership at pivot. If 
Woodhouse were to lose his 
place in the Harlequins team to 
Loveridge. the newly arrived All 
Blacks scrum half, -h would 
hardly seem fair. 

Gloucester tried to run the 
ball but there- was no subtlety m 
their midfield. In the second 
half the crowd started urging 
them to revert to 10-man rugby. 
Changed- days. Once upon a 
time they played little else. 

Fletcher dropped a goal from 
a Iineout won by Weekes. Dent 
broke, bin Thresher lost the ball 
over the Gloucester line. Tun 
Smith kicked two penalties for 
Gloucester before half-time but 
in between Skinner scored a try. 
for Harlequins from a tap 
penalty and Thresher 

convened. 

Thresher ml Harlequins 12-6 
ahead with a penalty five min- 
utes after the intervaL It became 
12-10 when Hannaford passed 
to Morgan on the Mind side of a 
scrum tor a try in the corner. 
Cooke got Harlequins second 
try from a scrum on the line and 
that was that, except for a fight 
among some of the forwards 
while the ball was on the 
opposite side of the field - all 
part of r ngfry's rich tapestry.

Neath have lost only once this 
season, to Newport, but for 
much of their visit to 
Brooklands on Sauuday, Sale 
held them with admirable spirit, 
carved out a number of scoring 
chances, but flagged in the final 
quarter to go down by three 
penalties to a goal, a drop goal 
and two penalties. 

For once the bionic boot of 
Neath’s Thorburn was some- 
thing less than infallible. His 
goal-kicking did not look re- 
laxed and, uncharacteristically, 
he managed only two penalties 
and a conversion out of seven 
chances. In contrast his opposite 
number, Jen ion, enjoyed a hun- 
dred per cent record and if their 
roles bad been reversed it would 
not have been a contest 

Neath lost Ellis, their right 


wing, at the intervaL Jackson, 
the replacement, came on as 
flanker with Morris moving to 
the wing, where he played 
impressively and scored the 
game’s only cry. Strangely, 
Neath played better after the 
reshuffle. Perhaps Sale tired, but 
their tackling, which had been 
deadly, deteriorated and this 
cost them the game. 

It was all kicks until the last 
five minutes. Sale led by three 
penalties to two, when Powell, 
playing his 64th consecutive 
game for Neath, took stand-off 
Griffiths's pass fully 40 yards 
out, checked and dropped 
optimistically for goal to see his 
soaring kick bisect the posts. 

By tnis time Sale were edgy in 
defence and Jeriion, whose ear- 
lier raenrsions into the line had 
threatened a breakthrough, was 
desperately lucky not to concede 
a try fey choosing the wrong 
option under pressure. Fitton 
also erred, when his injudicious 
fly-ldck was caught by Philips 


and a period of fierce pressure 
resulted. 

It was resolved' to Neath’S 
satisfaction when Powell again 
shaped to drop for goal but 
darted left to right, before 
tuning a finely executed inside 
to Morris on the burst. The 
back-row was tied into a 
maul and the defence was slow- 
thinking. Morris ran straight 
and bam, scored under the posts 
and Thorburn’s conversion was 
a formality. Both sides mounted 
further attacks and Thorburn 
missed another penalty, but 
Neath finished the stronger side.

Watsonians given the runaround 


Although the final score of 23- 
12 appears convincing, 
Watsonians struggled to beat a 
plucky Jed-Forest side at River- 
side Park on Saturday. The 
visitors started brightly enough, 
but it was 23 minutes before 
Forbes opened the scoring with 
a neat try. Ten minutes later 
Gavin Hastings kicked a 45- 
metre penalty to give his side a 
comfortable seven-point lead at 
the intervaL . 

Only two minutes into the 
second half Forbes stretched 
that lead with a drop goal from a 
scrum. At this point watsonians 
appeared to relax their grip and 
back came the home side. Liddle 
touched down from a wheeled 
scrum, Millar converted and 
five minutes later lacked a 
penalty to bring the score to 9- 
10 . 

Watsonians rallied, however, 
with Carmichael scoring a try 
following good possession from 
the pack and a clever break by

Hastings took the result beyond 
doubt with a fine try at the posts. 
His brother, Gavin, converted

converting both. Gass kicked a

recorded his second try to take 
bis team well dear. 

West of Scotland staged a late 
rally in which Buchan an-Smith 
and Barrett scored tries, Ross 
adding a third in injury time.

Vale of Lane are emerging as 
the most improved club io the 
north. On Saturday they visited 
Waterloo, regarded by many as 
the strongest northern dub, and 
woo a tough, fluctuating contest 
by 18-16 (Michael Stevenson 
writes). 

Vale scored a goal, two drop 
goals and two penalties to a try 
and four penalties, with Higgin, 
their full-back, contributing 14 
points. 

Vale counteracted Waterloo’s 
rolling mauls and generally held 
their own in the forward battle, 
although an intense period of 
pressure before halftime could 
have brought victory for 
Waterloo. 

Higgin and Aitchison each 
kicked two penalties, before a 
brilliant individual try by 
Heslop put Waterloo ahead. 
Hodgson scored on the stroke Of 
half-time for Higgin to convert. 


and victory came as Aitchison's 
two second-half penalties for 
Waterloo were matched by two 
drop goals, one with either foot, 
from the admirable Higgin.

Metcalfe's three missed pen- 
alties eased OrreU’s problems.

The home side played all of I

CRICKET 

Foster and 
Lamb 
ready for 
battle 

Brisbane (AP) — The England 
team's hopes of defending the 
Ashes received an early boost 
when two key players recovering 
from surgery came through 
unscathed yesterday after the 
touring team's first practice at 
the Gabba ground. 

Allan Lamb, recovering from 
a recent knee operation, and 
Neil Foster, who had swgeiy on 
his bed. were anxious about 
their fitness before leaving En- 
gland. But the captain, Mike 
Gutting, said the pair looked 
ready to play lcadmg roles on 
the tour. 

Gatling said that England 
would not take Friday's tour 
opener against a Queensland 
Country XI at Bundaberg 
tightly. “All games on the tonr 
are serious, but we have just so 
much time to find the right team 
to make up the side for the first 
Test next month,” he said. 

Gatling plans to practise daily 
at the Gabba and the party will 
fly to Bundaberg on Friday 
morning. England wifl play 
seven lead-up games before the 
first Test m Brisbane, which 
starts on November 14. 

Claims that Botham, Gower 
and Dilley almost joined the 
rebel England tour of South 
Africa in 1982 were brushed 
aside in Brisbane yesterday- A 
Story in The Times quoted Ali 
Bacfaer. managing director of 
the South African Cricket 
Union, as saying that all three 
signed lenens of intent in 1981. 
Bacher claimed Botham would 
have gone had the financial 
rewards been higher. 

The allegations were repeated 
in Australian newspapers yes- 
terday and seen by all three 
players before they took part in 
England's first practice session. 
But the England tour manager, 
Peter Lush, said that he bad not 
raised the subject. “There is no 
point in discussing things which 
may have happened five yean 
ago and of which we have no 
knowledge. The simple fact is 
that they didn’t go to South 
Africa," ne said. 

England's determination to 
succeed on and off the field is 
unlikely to win them many new 
friends in Australia. Thai much 
became dear within a few 
minutes of their arrival after a 
press conference at Sydney 
Airport. 

Australian -journalists -are- 
bothered by the strict new ruling 
from Lord’s which prohibits 
players from giving interviews 
“There has been a lot of 
criticism arising from the West 
Indies* tour because some play- 
ers had exclusive contracts with 
certain newspapers," Lush said. 
“We warned to take pressure off 
the players and they have 
ly accepted the situation. 
“You witi have to see me if you 
want to interview them, other- 
wise they will he in severe 
difficulties if quoted without 
permission." _ _ _ 

The fear for Australian of- 
ficials is that England's strict 
code of conduct will do nothing, 
to promote the Ashes series. 

Richards hits 
top form 

Quetta (Reuter) — West In- 
dies made an impressive start to 
their seven-week tour yesterday. 
Richards, the captain, hit three 
sixes and six fours in an 
unbeaten 47 against a Balu- 
chistan Governor's XI, averting 
collapse and putting the touring 
team in charge of the three-day 
match. At dose of play on the 
first day the West Indies were 
140 for five in reply to the 
Governor's XTs first innings 
total of 131. 

On a spinner’s wicket, the 
West Indians, Harper and Buns, 
and the stand-in home captain. 
Ejaz Faqih. all captured four 
wickets. Harper and Butts con- 
ceded only 59 runs between 
them as the locals crumbled 
from 91 for three at lunch to 1-31 
all owl 

Greenidge and Haynes put on 
63 for the first wicket as the 
touring team began their innings 
at a gallop. But Faqih removed 
them both and then had 
Richardson caught for seven. At 
87 for four West Indies were 
reeling until Richards took 
command.

Baroda (AP) — The three-day 
match between Australia and 
India's regional champions, 
Delhi, ended in a tame draw 
yesterday. 

The Australian batsmen, Greg 
Dyer and Dave Gilbert, hit their 
maiden centuries in first-class 
cricket as Australia overhauled 
Delhi's first innings total of 385 
for eight declared. 

Dyer made 106 with the help 
of two sixes and 10 fours, while 
Gilbert was the top scorer with 
12 7, hitting one six and 17 fours. 

Australia resumed at -204 for 
six and were all out for 457 after 
tea.The Australian captain, Ray

Madan Lai, decided to call off 
the match at this stage.

RACING: SURE BLADE AND AJDAL IMPRESS ON THE GALLOPS IN PREPARATION FOR NEWMARKET OBJE CT! VEg _ 

stars in sparkling homework WW A W • H . 


By Michael Seely 

Eight days ago in Paris, 
Khaled Abdulla, the season's 
leading owner, enjoyed one of 
the proudest moments of his 
life when Dancing Brave 
sprinted to that exhilarating 
victory in the Prix de 1'Arc de 
Triomphe. 

Next weekend it could be 
the turn of Sheikh Moham- 
med to steal the limelight by 
winning the William Hill 
Dewhurst Stakes with Ajdal 
and the Dubai Champion 
Stakes with Sure Blade. 

Both horses have given 
Michael Stoute and Barry 
Hills, their respective trainers, 
every satisfaction in their final 
gallops. On Friday. George 
Robinson, our Newmarket 
correspondent, was greatly 
impressed as he watched die 
favourite for the 2,000 Guin- 
eas make short work of 
Lucayan Knight on the Lime- 
kilns trial ground. Stoute's 
only comment was: “If 1 want 
to keep my work secret, HI 
have to move to somewhere 
like Manioo." 

On Saturday morning, on 
the Faningdon Road gallop at 
Lam bo urn. Sure Blade also 
delighted Hills in a 6‘/t-furlong 
spin with Oriental Soldier. 
“Robert Street said the colt 
has never gone better,’* the 
trainer said. “For the first time 
this season I think I’ve got 
him on the button. And, take 
it from me, this is a good 
horse.” 

Hills will have few runners 
this coming week. “Like Guy 
Harwood I've got a few horses 
which are coughing or have 
temperatures. But I'm not 
worried about Sure Blade, as 
he's already had it in the 
summer.” 

Sure Blade will certainly 
face some stiff opposition 
including Park Express, Trip- 
tych. Celestial Storm. Untold 
and Damister, the mount of 
Fiat Eddery. 

A live danger to Ajdal was 
removed when Jeremy Tree 
announced that Be! lotto. 





Perfect Timing and Steve Canthen (left) hang on by a short head from Person in Satnrday's Boris Stakes at Ascot. 


Abdulla's impressive winner 
of York’s Acomb Stakes, 
would be missing from the 
line-up. “The two-year-old's 
work on Saturday confirms 
my suspicion that he was 
going over the top,” said the 
Backhampton trainer. 

After winning Ascot’s Corn- 
wallis Stakes on Saturday with 
the Newmarket sales-bound. 
Singing Steven. Richard 
Hannon said that his Cham- 
pagne Stakes winner. Don't 
Forget Me, would be an 
absentee for the same reason. 

However, Ajdal. the star- 
tlingly easy winner of Ascot's 
Momington Stakes, will be 
tested to the full by Shady 
Heights and Hydraulic Power. 
Steve Cauthen will again take 
the mount on Robert 


Armstrong's Shady Heights, 
who showed such promise 
when running the brilliant 
Forest Flower to half a length 
in Newbury’s Mill Reef 
Stakes. And Eddery will ride 
Hydraulic Power, Michael 
AJbina's four-length con- 
queror of Imperial Frontier at 
Yarmouth. 

Stoute has no firm plans for 
Tashtiya, who, so ably and 
forcefully assisted by Walter 
Swim burn, showed such gal- 
lantry when beating Mill On 
The Floss in the Princess 
Royal Stakes. “The St Simon 
Stakes at Newbury is a 
possibility but that's the race 
I've got pencilled in for 
Kazaroun.” Stoute said. 

The season's leading trainer 
is now eyeing the rich autumn 


prizes on the North American 
continent for both 
Shahrastani and Shardari, 
who finished fourth and fifth 
respectively in the Arc. 

“At present Sonic Lady is 
my only definite runner on 
Breeders' Cup day,” he 
continued, “but I haven't yet 
ruled out the idea of taking 
Dancing Brave on again with 
Shahrastani.” 

Shardari, an out-and-out 
stayer who was beaten to the 
punch by fester horses in the 
closing stages at Longchamp, 
is now a possible for the 
Rothmans Internationa] 
Championship in Toronto 
next Sunday. 

After watching Steve 
Cauthen drive Perfect Timing 
to a narrow victory over 


Peri on in the Bovis Stakes, 
David Elsworth, the winning 
trainer, issued a warning 
about Floyd, ante-post 
favourite for the Tote 
Cesarewitch. 

“Floyd will not run on 
Saturday unless we have a lot 
of rain to ease the going,” said 
the Whitsbury trainer. “He 
missed all last jumping season 
with leg trouble and I don't 
want to jeopardize next 
winter’s campaign by running 
him on firm ground.” 

With Floyd now a likely 
absentee. Sneak Preview has 
been installed the new 
favourite at 6-1. “The horse is 
very well,” said Henry Ca 
guardedly. “Billy Newnes 
ride.” 


excellent 
second in 
Criteriiim 

Lodcton (Michael Hms) ran a 
fine race to finish second .to 
Danisfakada (Yves Saint-Mar- 
tin) in the group one Grand 
Criterion! at Longchamp yes- 
today. Jeremy Hir^Jey s colt 
made good lute headway to 
overhaul the disappointing 
odds-tm favourite, Fotitieng, 
dose home bat he could make 
little impression os Damshkada 
who made all . to ghe Saint- 
Martin his first victory In the 
event. 

The result scans to indicate 
that the French two-year-®iI 
colts are a sub-standard lot as 
Lockton is several pounds betew 
the best of his age at borne. 

Lockton may be seen ant 
again bi the William Hill Fa- 
tality on October 25 bat 
will not ran again 

this year. 

Saint-Martin completed a 
doable when Stemmy* easily 
won the Prix de RoyaUieu from 
Krogay. Steve Norton's 
Amongst The Stara was prom- 
inent for much of the race but 
fajH to finish out of the first 
six. ‘ 

Eve’s Error (Walter 
Swiabera) led a British ooe-two- 
three in the Grosser Press von 
Dnssddorf yesterday. Michael 
Stoute's colt stayed on too 
strongly for Siyah Kalem and 
Chartino. 

Dmdep had better hide in San 
Sira, MDan when Sanam (Willie 
Carson) came with a strong late 
run to overbad Melbury Lad in 
the Gran Criterhna. There was 
only a neck hi it at the finish 
with KaKgoortie forcing his way 
back on the fine to dead-heat for 
third with the other British 
runner, Beeshi, a farther neck 
away. 

In the Premio Omeaoni, Wil- 
lie Hastings- Bass’s Storm 
Warning (Tony Ives) jnst held 
on to thwart the late effort of 
Chris Rutter on Polykratis. 

Meanwhile, at Florence, 
Esdate, formerly trained by 
Jeremy Tree, was a convincing 
winner of the Premio Casriae.

ished fifth.

Authaal begins to justify price 

From Onr Irish Racing Correspondent, DnbUit 


Authaal, the most expensive 
yearling ever sold at public 
auction in Europe, led from start 
to finish to win fee Jefferson 
Smurfit Memorial Irish St Leger 
at fee Cnrragh yesterday. 

Trained by David O'Brien, 
Authaal gave Sheikh Moham- 
med his first group one victory 
wife a colt in either England or 
IreJand. 

Not only was this a first for 
the Shaikh but it also insured 
feat fee in-feted Sherear .pro- 
duced a classic winner from his 
only crop to race. 

Authaal was bred at Robert 
Sangster’s Swettenham stud and 
two seasons ago he was con- 
signed to the Gofls select sate at 
KjII where he fetched 3.1 mil- 
lion guineas. 

H» victory yesterday owed as 
much to the enterprise of his 
rider, Christy Roche; as his own 
ability. Knowing feat his mount 
was a natural front-runner, 
Roche aUowsd him to stride on 
from the start. 


After going half a mile he was 
five lengths m front of Faburola 
and by The halfway stage he had 
extended this advantage to (S 
lengths. Authaal began to slow 
in the straight but those behind . 
never looked like getting on 
terms. 

Earlier in the afternoon Gulf 
King, trained by Paul KeUeway, 
became the fourteenth English- 
trained group winner in Ireland 
this season in the Panasonic 
Beresford Stakes. . Vincent 
O'Brien’s Ancient Times signed 
at 7-4 on but did.not finish in

Bill Watts is thinking in terms 
of the Washington DC Inter- 
national for Teleprompter after 
Lord Derby's six-year-old com- 
pleted a Phoenix Ftot treble in 
the Breeders' Cup Prep Mile on 
Saturday- 

Tony Ives led from the start 
and none of his moderate rivals 
was able to get in a challenge. 
Indeed, as Ives revealed after- 
wards, the biggert danger he bad 


to overcome was a slippery 
surface on the first turn where 
he almost lost his footing. Once 
back on an even feed, the 3-1 on 
chance was able to canter home 
by eight lengths from Istoriato.

iere was not a Tottenham 
player who could not have 
delighted the manager, David 
Pleat. Even the stranger, 
Claesen, his expensive new sign- 
ing. had him purring. *Tve told 
him he won’t play in a faster 
first division game or » pin« a 
better team. He’ll improve as he 
Rets .to know us," Ik said. The 
Betean is quick and bright, very 
nnular, as Pleat says, to Paid 
Walsh. 

But all the promise and 
imagination ofTotlenham’s for- 
ward work would have counted 
for nothing if their defence had 
not been so combative, so 
secure. Gough, one of the honest 
playeri — one with heart— stood 
defiantly at the centre of 
Tottenham's defence like a Gen- 
eral Coster. So fest and dean 
was his tackling that Rush never 
knew what hit hfriy "It was a 
good test for him . . . you come 
to Liverpool and you And out 
what good football's all about,” 
Pleat said. 

Within 29 seconds of the 
restart, Allen nipped in to get 
goal side of Grobbdaar to touch 
home Waddle's perceptive pass 
at the end ofa superbly bold run 
for Allen's 12th goal in 11 
games. And the response to the 
goal came not from Liverpool, 
but from Tottenham them- 
selves. la the next few minutes 
they struck four times without 
reply at the Liverpool defence, 
and in feet Gaesen put the ball 
in the net at the end of another 
damaging Waddle ran, but the 
goal was disallowed for an in- 
rrina 


have avoided the subsequent 
crash. 

To have done so, they 
a collective spirit as a 
Parachute. Instead, in the 
absence of three senior players 
who are threatening to bale 
out, their already-crumbling 
morale was explosively 
dismantled. 

As Hollins attempts to pick 
up the pieces again, he is 
aware that the da in_ 
fueled throughout the week is 
extensive ana could even be 
beyond repair. The team who

Chariton Athletic had their 
of ff* season - 
10,364 — for the home gnw 
agejnst Evertm on Saturday and 
had even more reason to smile 
after unexpectedly winning 3-2. 
Melrose, who gave Watson — 
Everton’s expensive si gning 
from Norwich City - a thor- 
oughly uncomfortable after- 
noon, scored all three Chariton 
goals with his right foot Sbeedy 
twice replied for Everton, who 
must be relieved that their next 
match is against a dub from 
outside London; their two pre- 
vious defeats were by Arsenal 
and Tottenham Hotspur.

said. “I know Christmas is Chelsea need hn 


coming, but West Ham could 
not have expected a present 
like that.” He added that he 
was in favour of enter taining 
matches “but not at our 
expense. Our marking was 
very, very poof". 

The standard of refe r e e in g 
was not appreciably better in 
an extraordinary game that 
was punctuated by three pen- 
alties, only the thud of which 
was unquestionable. Nevin 


Chelsea need honest, loyal 
servants like Bonds, a 40-year- 
old who played a prominent 
role, alb eit as a substitute, in a 
performance described justifi- 
ably by John Lyall as 
“spectacular, dramatic and 
pulsating stuff”. A doomed 
pilot might be entitled to a 
different version of Chelsea’s 
downfall

Let there be no suggestion 
that Nottingham Forest are 
about to lose their pi«» 
amongst the championship 
leaders. Brian Clough’s rid e, 
which has been a revelation this 
season, stormed Filbert Street 
on Saturday with aiywhwr bold 
attacking display - only to find 
that Leicester City, too, are a 
team transformed. 

Forest's first defeat since foe 
;ing day of the season, and 
resultant removal fiom foe 
top of foe first division, was an 
acceptable price to pay for 
providing the East Midlands 
with a derby they will never 
forget- In a match of stirring 
quality. Forest — after winning 
II corners— were good value far- 
ther interval lead, but Leicester 
responded with a second half 
performance which underlined 
why they are having their best 
start to a season for a decade. 

The crucial factor was the 
halftime substitution of Sealy 
for Moran, a case of turning bad 
hick into good. “It wasn't 
planned — Moran turned his 
ankle and could not go on,” 
Bryan Hamilton, foe Leicester 
manager, admitted. Within 
. seven minutes Sealy, who had 
made victory out of defeat as a 
second half substitute for Moran 
at Manchester City the previous 
Saturday, had set up the equal- 
izer. Ana, in seizing on a short 
bade pass from Walker to square 
for Smith to make a simple tap 
in, Sealy collided with Sutton, 
who had to be stmehered off 
When Bowyer took over in 
goal, Leicester saw their chance 
and Forest’s defence gave them 
a helping band. McAllister, 
unmarked, made it 2-1 from 
dose range and then scored 
from a twice- taken penalty after 


the Leagues highest scorers 
began as if they had set them- 
selves that target. Campbell and 
Carr e ach escaped foe Leicester 
defence but Andrews w™* 
quickly out to Mock, Venus 
cleared off the line fiom Births 
and Andrews showed smart 
reactions to keep out further 
shots from Metgod and Birtles. 
The breakthrough came after 41 
mi nu te s, when Birtles com- 
pleted a sweeping Forest move 
by soaring from five yards. 

Leices t er served notice that 
they could hand out punches as 
well as cake them when Smith's 
header had Walker 

bade to dear off the 

was the excitement that even foe 
referee seemed to lose track of 
time, adding a generous four 
m i n u tes on to the first half and 
fi ve to the second. - — ••

Watching this match was a bit 
I"“ timing on foe television 
and Dad changing the channels 
ju st w hen you were getting 
interested. The premature end- 
ing came when the Watford 
goalkeeper, Tony Coton, was 
sent off for persistent dissent 1 0 
minutes into foe second hall 
Coton's original offence was 
to protest to a linesman when a 
penalty was awarded for 


commendable sureness in his 
handling “Blimey, he’s better 
than Luktc.” one wag suggested. 
Lukic. lhe Arsenal goalkeeper, 
does noi endear himself to the 
Highbury faithful because ofhis 
worrying Continental habit of 
punching crosses and. by the 
end of the game, he must have 
felt like Barry McGuigan on a 
bad day as Barnes, in particular, 
floated over some teasing bolls.

Rostrum. Since he continued to 
complain, presumably in rather 
colourful terms, the referee may 
well have had no option but to 
point to the tunnel, though he 
did so in a melodramatic fesb- 
ion which did not inspire con- 
fidence in him as a figure of 
authority. 


being an „ 

United's latest revivaL 
What Saturday's result, and 
the spectacular manner of fts 
achievement, can only mean is 
that United are hack — and with 
a particular vengeance that was 
felt by Wednesday, who having 
won the previous four matches 
took a fourth-minute lead when 
Chamberlain looped a header 
from Manvood’s cross over 
Turner. 

And it seemed to be only a 
matter of “here we go again” 


. His neat header was a 
fining finish after Barnes had 
eluded O’Leary with a Puskas- 
style bounce of the ball on his 
instep. 

With six minutes remaining. 
Arsenal added a third goal. The

when foe referee awarded 
United a dubious penalty after 
Worthington's untidy rhnflpnp- 
on Strachan. Bearing in mind 
the embarrassment of their 
three recent misses from the 
spot, you could almost sense 
United players secretly pleading 
with the official: “Come on ret 
give us a corner, we'll settle for 
that instead.” Stiff Davenport 
scored confidently with the lack, 
and after that there was no 
looking back. 

Barnes, who had lound 
defenders queuing up behind 
Steri and to take nun on in the 
first half, suddenly cut loose as 
United varied their direction of 
attack with a string of passes 
from deep on the right to him 
shimmying away to provide 
crosses from the left. 

Twice in a minute from 
moves fashioned in this way. 

And with supreme justice, it 
was Barnes, who laid on the 
decisive goals in foe last five 
minutes, finding. Davenport

dirty tricks

From Barry Picktball 
Fremantle 

Gale force 
winds kicking 
up a wall of 
white water 
across 
Fremantle’s 
fishing boat har- 
bour forced the cancelation of 
yesterday's eigth day of chal- 
lenger trials, and the promising 
titan battle between Dennis 
Conner's Stars & Stripes and her 
rival America II. 

Yesterday’s programme, in 
w-hich Britain's White Crusader 
was due to meet Heart of 
America, skippered by Buddy 
Melges. has now been held over, 
awaiting the 40-knot north- 
easterly winds to aboil below the 
30- knot maximum set by the 
race committee. Crusader, 
which scored an easy win 
against the Aga Khan's Italian 
entry. Azzurra HI. on Saturday, 
now holds fourth place overall 
behind lhe two unbeaten leaders 
— Stars & Stripes and New 
Zealand IV, with America II, 
skippered by John Kolius. cur- 
rently 3rd. 

Arguments surrounding the 
construction of New Zealand's 
glass fibre 12-mcirc rumbled on, 
with a report in yesterday's 
Weekend Australian, stating 
that a prominent member ofa 
Uni led States syndicate claimed 
he had obtained a section of 
decking from the New Zealand 
boat's cut-out which contained a 
black substance that could be 
carbon fibre - an illegal 
material. 

The disclosure came hard on 
the heels of a statement issued 
by Lloyds Register of Shipping 
on Saturday that the New 
Zealand yacht had been built 
correctly to their specifications, 
and they saw no reason for re- 
sampling of the hull. 

At a weekend press con- 
ference. Gianfranco Alberini. 
commodore of the Costa 
Smcralda Yacht Club said that 
he wanted this matter, and the 
accusation — also made by 
Conner’s San Diego Syndicate — 
that some keels may have been 
cost from materials with a 

greater specific gravity than 
lead, cleared up as quickly as 
possible. 

Yesterday, the New Zealand- 
ers poured scorn on the Ameri- 
can claims: “We built it under 
strict security and the deck does 
not contain carbon fibre”, he 
said.

heavyweight champion 


By Bex Bellamy, Tennis Correspondent 


' From David Miller 
Chief Sports Correspondent 
Lausanne 


THe in-fighting hn$ started. 
The members of the Inter- 
national Olympic Committee 
arriving at the Palais de 
Beaulieu here for the opening 
ceremony of the 91st session 
were greeted on the steps of 
the conference hall by a 20- 
yard banner proclaiming: 

“Amsterdam Never”. 

The suave Barcelona 
delegation politely side- 
stepped the dishevelled pro- 
testers and endeavoured not to 
lymt lo, privately hoping that 
police tolerance of the banner 
wiD continue nntiJ Friday 
when the voting for 1992 takes 
place. 

Such demonstrations as this 
swung the voting in 1981 at 
Baden-Baden away from Na- 
goya and towards SeoaL die 
IOC the most provoc- 

ative selection of hosts for the 
summer Games In their his- 
tory — “a disaster,” one 
member of the executive board 
has privately described it 

Amsterdam would be no 
disaster. It would, I believe, be 
an admirable choice, yet polls 
conducted in tbe city suggest 
that only 45 pear cent of the 
inhabitants are in favour and 
20 per cent are against the 
Games because of present 
budget cuts. 


A week's practice with Boris 
Becker could make a man or 
break a man. It seems to have 
made Stuart Bale, aged 22, a 
left-handed Londoner who 
was languishing in the wilder- 
ness when he was invited to 
Essen a fortnight ago to 
sharpen up to German Davis 
Cup team. The sparring part- 
ner did his stuff — and then 
flew home and became a 


champion, with a cheque for 
£8,500. 

"1 had to conquer the fear of 
winning,” Bale said yesterday. 
Obviously he has done it Bale 
won the men's singles in the 
Refuge Assurance national 
championships at Telford by 
beating all bis five opponents 
in straight sets. Those oppo- 
nents included the Davis Cup 
singles players, Jeremy Bates 
and Andrew Csstie. 

In the final Castle needed to 
be at peak fitness but may 
have been slightly inhibited by 
two minor strains. He went 
down 6- 1, 7-6 to a player with 
tbe hardest British service 
since Mike Sangster's. More- 


over, Bale knows how to vary 
and is willing to gamble. 
Suddenly Bale is “on a roll” 
as they say. He owes Becker a 
drink. 

Jo Durie, ranked 19th in the 
world, regained the women's 
title with a 6-4, 6-2 win over 
last year’s champion, Anne 
Hobbs. Miss Durie was serv- 
ing at 1-2 and love-4-0 down 
in the first set but for the rest 
of (he match the waspishly 
lively Miss Hobbs was over- 
powered by a bigger and better 
player. 

Muss Durie and Miss Hobbs 
won tbe doubles for the fourth 
consecutive year. In the sin- 
gles semi-finals Miss Durie 
was too good for Sara Gomer, 
who played well considering 
that she had pulled a thigh 
muscle, and Miss Hobbs 
asked Annabel Croft’s back- 
hand more questions than it 
could answer. 

Bates and Nick Fulwood 
won the men's doubles and 
must be candidates for the 
Davis Cup vacancy left by 
Colin Dowdeswdl and John 


Lloyd. In the singles semi- 
finals Jonathan Smith seemed 
not to give himself much of a 
chance against Bale (whose 
serving gave Smith hardly any 
scope for negotiation anyway) 
and Castle mastered Stephen 
Shaw after a violently dose 
first set Tactically, Castle was 
the more flexible. 

Paul Hutchins, tbe national 
team manager, has been so 
heartened by the week’s tennis 
that he herpes up to eight men 
— some of whom would need 
financial help from tire Lawn 
Tennis Association — will 
compete in Australia during 
the British winter. Roger Tay- 
lor has been engaged to look 

after the tourists for six weeks. 

The venture may cost the LTA 
more than £10,000. 


This was an encouraging 
week for players of both sexes 


and for the championships 
themselves. In only four years

Scottsdale (AP) — John 
McEnroe, tbe top seed, secured 
a straight-sets victory over 
David Pate, the fourth seed, in 
Saturday’s semi-finals of the 
WCT Scottsdale Open and will 
play third-seeded Kevin Curren 
for the championship. 

Before the rain struck to 
suspend both semi-final doubles 
matches, McEnroe and Peter 
Fleming, the second seeds, won 
the first set 6-4 against Leonardo 
Lavalle and Mike Leach, while 
the No. 3 seeds. Scott Davis and 


Pate, won their first set 6-2 
against the top seeds, Paul 
Annacooe and Christo Van 
Rensbuig. 

McEnroe needed just 67 min- 
utes to eliminate Pate 6-3, 6-3 
and reach the finals for the third 
time in his last three tour- 
naments. The 27-year-old left- 
hander won both the Volvo-Los 
Angeles and Transamcrica 
Open in San Francisco 


themselves. In only four years 
the tournament has estab- 
lished a tradition that many 
other European nations must 
envy. Except for Lloyd. 
Britain's leading players have 
all taken part consistently — 
partly because the prize 
money is good and partly 
because they think they 
should compete anyway. 

“This tournament is good for 
British tennis”. Miss Durie 
says, “and it is up to players 
like me to support it by 
putting our reputations on the 
line.”

reached the absurdity where 

opening ceremonies are staged 

to launch merely a bid, never

The commercial bendit of

ing resorts, such as Val

events will be staged, is im- 
measurable. Their view of foe

_ Tbe whole bidding scenario 
is out of control, with almost 
enough money spent on

discrediting by extravagance

To have moved from tire 
crisis of only one c and i da te for

the present scramble for the 
honour may be a reflection of 
Peter Ueberroth’s enterprise 
for Los Angeles but foe exec-

refandable deposit to the

will have done no good, 1 
suspect, for the summer

GOLF 


By Mitchell Platts 


Laura Davies provided Brit- 
ish golf with another success to 
celebrate yesterday when she 
compiled a last round of 70 to 
capture the British Women's 
Open championship az Royal 
Btrkdale. 


the tee. Miss Davies outdrove 
Miss Conley by 30 yards at tbe 
first, where she made a birdie to 
her opponent’s regulation five. 


to take three putts on the next 
green. 


Miss Davies, aged 23. became 
the first home winner of the 
Championship since 1978 when 
foe swept past Peggy Conley of 
the United States, to win tbe 
£9,000 first prize with a 17- 
under-par aggregate of 283. 

Miss Davies, who only turned 

C fessional last year, began her 
il round three shots adrift, 
but had four shots to spare at the 
end as Miss Conley struggled to 
a 77 to share second (dace with 
Marta Figueras-Dotti (73) of 
Spain. 

Miss Conley’s three-foot lead 
was soon erased by Miss Davies, 
although the American contrib- 
uted to her own downfall by 
adopting such a meticulous and 
tentative approach that she 
automatically handed the initia- 
tive to her opponent 


Her prodigious drive at the 
second left her only a wedge to 
the green which she deposited 
just 18 inches from tbe hole for 
an eagle three. 


In tact. Miss Davies should 
have moved ahead at the third, 
where Miss Conley drove into a 
bunker, but she revealed the 
putting chink in her armour by 
rushing her second effort from 
two feet and (he ball agonizingly 
slipped past the hole. 


That error placed an addi- 
tional burden on Miss Davies at 
the short fourth, where she left 
herself a second putt of six feet 
in order to salvage a per. But foe 
solved the problem by reverting 
to a cack-handed grip — using 
her left hand below the right — 
and to her relief the ball found 
the sanctuary of the bole. 


From the moment (hat Miss 
Conley backed off her first putt 
on the apron of the opening 
green, it was abundantly clear 
that she was not relishing the 
task ahead- And Miss Davies- 
demoralized her by making an 
electrifying stan. 

Tbere is still room for 
improvement in some depart- 
ments of Miss Davies’s game, 
especially with her putting, but 
even so foe has brought a new 
dimension to the WPGA tour 
through her immense power off 


Thereafter Miss Davies 
continued to e x pe rim ent with 
her grip on the putter^he holed 
from 10 feet at the fifth, so 
matching Miss Conley's birdie, 
and foe finally wriggled ahead 
by coaxing home a putt of four 
feet for a two at the short 
seventh. 


The next two boles virtually 
decided the issue. Miss Davies 
holed from 12 feet for a birdie 


three at the eighth whereas Miss 
Conley took five and the Ameri- 
can, dearly in some distress 
with her game, then proceeded 


Norman’s four In a row 


Tweed Heads (Renter) — A 
10-yard putt for an eagle at the 


14th hole set Greg Norman, the 
world's leading player this year, 
on the path to a six-stroke 
victory in the Queensland Open 
yesterday. 

Trailing Jeff Woodland by 
two foots after the third round, 
the British, European and world 
match play champion went 
round in 70 for an 1 1-under-par 


total of 277 and his fourth 
tournament win in a row.

HOCKEY: MEMORABLE VICTORY FOR ENGLAND 


Poland 
have a 
field day 


England wait on 
group table 


By Sydney Frisian 


Poland stepped into high gear 
and outran Spain to win 5-2 in 
group B of the World Cup at 
Willesden yesterday (Sydney 
Friskrn writes). It was tbe 
second victory for Poland, who 


pushed Spain out of tbe running 
for medals. 


Miss Davies, out in 32 com- 
pared with her opponent’s 39, 
bad forged four foots ahead. She 
forfeited half of that advantage 
by taking five at the short 12th, 
where she was in the bunker, but 
by that stage the damage to.Miss 
Conley's morale bad diluted any 
possibility of a counter-attack. 


for medals. 

The Poles were given plenty 
of room to work the ball and 
they took foil advantage of the 
open spaces, their inode left 
Podzorski having a field day 

with four spectacular goals to his 

credit. 

Spain, it seemed, had not 
recovered from the 6-0 defeat by 
Australia and never got back 
into the game once they were 
two goals in arrears. Podzorski 
scored tbe first goal in tbe 10th 
minute after a foot fry Miroslaw 
had been saved by the goal- 
keeper; and within two minutes 
he raced through on his own to 
obtain tbe second goaL 


England gave 
one of their 
finest perfor- 
mances for 
many years 
when they de- 
feated Pakistan 3-1 before a 
crowd of 1 1,000 at Willesden on 
Saturday in Group A of the 
World Cup. It was a day largely 
influenced by the penalty stroke. 
Jon Potter converting two for 
England. 

It would have been a day of 
sweet fulfilment had the result 
been enough to assure England 
of a place in tbe semi-finals. Tbe 
suspense will have to be pro- 
longed until the end of today 
when the League table

Netherlands, the Soviet Union 
and England are resolved. 

Within 21 minutes of the first 
half which was almost com- 
pletely dominated by England, 


had saved from Bather at a foort 
corner, the lead was incresed in 
the 21st minute. Nasir Ali at 
left-back foiled to intercept a 
free hit by Batchelor and Kelly 
came in at high speed to score, 
fn the second half Taylor con- 
ceded a penalty stroke and 
Kaleemullah sent him the 
wrong way to score.. 

England, launching a fierce 
counter-offensive forced a 
succession of short corners, one 
of which led to a scramble and 
another penalty stroke conceded 
a gain by the unfortunate Qasim 
Zia. Potter converted the stroke

Birfcdale by linking nine birdies 
to an eagle (which also con- 
stitutes a one-round record for 
the WPGA Tour) for a dosing 
66, which lifted her into fourth 
place with a score of 288. Miss 
New found an astonishing touch

herself to only 25 putts. 

Vikki Thomas, the Welsh 
international who was the only 
representative of the victorious 
Curtis Cup team to compete in 
the championship, followed her 
hole in one on Saturday with a 
last round of 70 to take fifth 
place one shot ahead of the 
defending champion Betsy King

There might have been some 
encouragement for Spain if they 
had converted a penalty stroke 
in the 24th minute but goal- 
keeper Knlpa made a splendid 
save from De Paz who seldom 
misses from the spot. 

Spain, however, hit back with 
a brilliant goal four minutes 
after tbe interval by Roca who 
had combined well with Xavier

Wigan show the way for Bamford 


By Keith Madeira 


In a bre athtak i n gfy exciting 
second half which had die 
30.000 crowd at Central Park 
bordering on delirium Wigan — 
without the injured Ellery Han- 
ley — pulled bade from 2-20, 
scored three thrilling tries, and 
held the Kangeroos to an 18-26 
final scoreline; 


In the first half it seemed that 
the Australian juggernaut would 
cany on rolling as remorselessly 
as it did on the 1982 tour. 
Within three minutes the foil

break and sent O’Connor over

scored further tries and 
O’Connor kicked two goals. 


the tonristS-GQJ made a 50-yard 
dash, then Australia appeared to 
have sewn tbe game up with a 
breakaway try by Lewis. How- 
ever Wigan’s lively scrum half 
Ford made a try for Bell on the 
left, then West sent Edwards 
scurrying 45 yards for a try. 

Although Kiss got another try 
for Australia, Wigan would not 
be denied and Bell sent in Lydon 


12 men by Dannatt's sending 
off. In yesterday’s Champion-

tained their leadership and

By Nigel Mdvflle 

(Former England Rugby 
Union captain) 


Thousands of young Austra- 
lians (are there really that many 
of them in London?) flocked to 


The Oval yesterda 
recreate the aun os 


Melbourne GrandFinal day. 


relay to try to 
loroherc of the 
id Final day. 


SIWUI iH, . 

They came 10 wimm tbe first 
official Australian Rules Foot- 
ball match in Britain. North 
Melbourne were' playing 
Carl ion. North Melbourne won 
133-86. The crowd's response 
would suggest it should bec om e 
an annualcvcnL They were well 
in keeping with their traditional 


diameter by consuming plenty 
of tubes of another, better 
known. Australian export. 

Following my previous day's 
visit to Twickenham, the open- 
ing 20 minutes were for livelier 
with Australian aggressive qual- 
ities in evidence. There were 
two punch-ups early on, illus- 
trating their commitment for 
this exhibition match and show- 
ing there was no love tost 
between the two sides. 

But tbe fighting was. appar- 
ently. not too serious and did 
not lead to bad injury. It's all 
part of the game which the 
crowd seems to enjoy. Befo re 
the start there was the razzma- 
tazz of a brass band, boo- 
merang-throwing and fireworks. 

Australian Rules is played by 
iaiL fit and powerful men, the 
equivalent of our rugby for- 
wards. with the possibteexcep- 
uon of prop forwards. The size 
of the pitch, using virtually the 

whole field, and the length of tbe 

match, with four quarters of 25 
minutes each plus stoppage 
time, makes fitness a prroniy. 

Each player has Uk combined 
kicking and catching skills of a 
full back and second row for- 
i ward. Some also have the speed 
of a winger. 

Fiesh from defeat in the 
Grand Final. Carlton took the 
upper hand initially against a 
North Melbourne tide which 
finished mid-table in the Vic- 
toria Football League. Carlton 
looked the better team and were 
57-42 ahead at half-time. 

Points are awarded for kicks 
between the sets of four posts. 
Six are scored for the ball 
through the middle two posts, 
and one point if it goes either 
side within the other two posts. 
Accuracy in their kicking was an 
outstanding feature of the 
match. Apparently foe record 
kick stands at 96 yards — 
approximately the fixtl length of

a rugby pitch! 

The game is officiated by two 
boundary umpires, two field 
umpires and two goal umpires — 
the most flamboyant of them all. 
Their white bats and white coats 
and their semaphore-like ges- 
tures. with two white flags on 
the scoring ofa goal, add to the 
occasion. 

North- Melbourne led 88-78 
by the third quarter. In the last 
phase Carlton faded, so the 
crowd ofj ust under 10,000 sawa 
further 45 points from their 
opponents giving North Mel- 
bourne the Courage Cup to take 
home to Australia.

THE TIMES MONDAY OCTOBER 13 1986 


Package fails to 
clarify issue 
of amateurism 


The redefinition 
amateurism has proved too 
strong a medicine for the 
' Internationa] Rugby Football 
Board. 

- After two days of sub- 
committee meetings and three 
days in foil session, the board 
produced in London yes- 
terday a package straining die 
bounds of the current defi- 
nition yet further and which, 
as with two other related 
topics, requires ratification by 
a three-quarters majority from 
the eight member anions 
when they meet again in 
March. 

Even a masterly perfor- 
mance by Cec Blazey, the New 
Zealand chairman of the 
board, at yesterday’s press 
conference could not disguise 
the fact that this meeting, 
specifically to discuss 
amateurism, has produced no 
more than an expression of 
hope which may yet foil prey 
to a welter of different inter- 
pretations, innocent or wilful 

The board's mandate was to 
discuss proposed changes to 
the amateur regulations; to 
acquire for itself disciplinary 
powers; and to consider the 
report of its emergency 
committee on the failure of 
the South African Rugby 
Board (SARB) to call off the 
unauthorized New Zealand 
tour this year. 

The second two objectives 
were related and resulted in a 
“solemn undertaking" given 
“unconditionally and 
irrevocably" by Dr Danie 
Craven and Professor Fritz 
Eloff, South Africa's repre- 
sentatives, that there would be 
no recurrence of an un- 
authorized tour. In the mean- 
time, the New Zealand Rugby 
Union's investigations into 
alleged transgressions of 
amateurism continue, the 
Cavaliers having been pun- 
ished for participating in an 
unauthorized tour by their 
two-match suspension during 
the summer. 

“What Colin Meads has 
said did not impinge on our 
discussions because the board 
would not take action on a 
newspaper report, however 
factual it may be," Blazey said 
in a reference to revelations in 


By David Hands, Rugby Correspondent 
of The Times last week. “It will undoubtedly a major change. 


investigate in the proper way 
and then come to a 
conclusion." 

The board acted in the 
understanding that the SARB 
aretaking steps to curb the 
autonomy of their provincial 
unions and thus hopes there 
will be an end to talk of rebel 
tours. 

If such tours should occur, 
however, any member union 
may institute an inquiry if 
they consider one of their co- 
members to be acting in a way 
prejudicial to the interests or 
bye-laws of the board. The 
board propose to take on the 
power of suspension or expul- 
sion and a disciplinary 
committee will be appointed 
at each annual meeting to 
consider complaints of 
misconduct. 

This is a new procedure for 
the board, whose repre- 
sentatives will carry the pro- 
posals bade to their own 
unions for further discussion 

More Rugby Union 
on page 29 

“with the object in view of 
implementing this declaration 
of intent at the annual meeting 
of the board in March 1987." 

One would have thought by 
now that, even though the 
board is made up of repre- 
sentatives as opposed to dele- 
gates. they might have been 
made aware of their own 
union's opinions -and could 
have acted decisively thereon. 
Such is democracy in action. 

In respect of amateurism, 
amendments have been pro- 
posed to the tour regulations 
which might make it easier for 
all players, regardless of their 
employment to go on major 
tours. “We are not necessarily 
seeing the demise bf the 
amateur game,” Blazey said, 
“but 1 am certain that the 
recommendations here are 
changing something which has 
been quite fundamental to the 
game of rugby football for a 
hundred years. The fun- 
damental principle has been 
that compensation for loss of 
earnings did not apply. It is 


In essence the old daily 
allowance has been abolished 
and two new categories in- 
troduced: the tour allowance 
and the personal allowance. 
Any person travelling whh a 
senior national representative 
team (including die British 
Lions) whose salary is not 
tnyfo up by his employer will 
receive the tour allowance 
from the visiting union. It will 
probably be based on the 
national minimum wage and 
must in no case exceed foe 
normal earnings of foe in- 
dividual concerned. 

The personal allowance is 
designed to cover any per- 
sonal requirements, including 
telephone calls home, and 
may go to r ef er e es too. Harry 
McKibbin, foe Irish chairman 
of foe committee concerned 
with amateur regulations, 
admitted that if all employers, 
knowing such distinctions ex- 
isted, chose not to pay 
employees’ salaries, there 
would be little foe board could 
do. 

The major change is to 
regulation 22 which currently 
reads: “No person may be 
paid compensation for loss of 
earnings or for broken time for 
involvement in the game." 
The revised principle reads: 
“No person shall be paid 
compensation for loss of earn- 
ings or for broken time or for 
leave without pay for involve- 
ment in the game except when 
such involvement relates to 
his union's international tour 
commitments and interferes 
with his normal working 
hours; such compensation 
(hereinafter referred to as 
'tour allowance') shall be sub- 
ject to such limits as may be 
fixed by foe board." 

“The member unions still 
believe very fundamentally 
that rugby must remain an 
amateur game." Blazey said. 

There was no dissent from 
any representative at what has 
been proposed, yet foe 
opportunity to revise foe ama- 
teur regulations has been ig- 
nored. All we have is another 
‘'exception" to the general 
principle. When, I wonder, 
will foe exceptions become foe 
rule. 


Conciliators find a solution 


- It was Saturday lunch-time 
and the Pullman coach waiting

away by rebellion and 
subterfuge. 

Evidence of foe former had 
been all too dear in foe crisis 
over the New Zealand 
Cavaliers' tour of South Africa 
this year. Evidence of the 
latter was increasmgfy being 
thrust into foe public arena, 
not least after a series of 
revelations in The Times last 
week. 

The staunchest hardliners 
on amateurism were, however, 
the most worried about the 
prospects of more rebel tours 
or professional circuses. 

The disclosures in The 
Times had, as one member put 
it, “thrown the Board into 
shock." 

One South African official 
had on Thursday night wagged 
his finger at me as I was 
chatting to an astonished 
Marcel Martin, of France. 
“You are trying to destroy us 
but you win not succeed," he 
shouted. Yet foe next morning 
Dr Danie Craven and I were 
having a full-scale interview. 

Those pressing for players 
on tour to have full compensa- 
tion for loss of earnings knew 
the fear of another South 
African coup — no matter how 
strongly Dr Craven promised 
there would be no more — was 
a trump card, and they used it. 
They made it dear they would 
not pass a new rule giving foe 
Board “teeth" — power in 
future to expel member coun- 
tries which are involved in 
unanfoorised tours — unless 
foe amateur changes went 
through. “It was an impasse 
all round," one Board member 
said. 

The solution came after 
lunch <m Saturday, from the 
two key conciliators, Harry 
McKibbin of Ireland and Cec 
Blazey, of New Zealand, the 
chairman of foe Board. 

He and Blazey persuaded 
each side to commit itself to 
both proposals — provided 
they were not brought into 
force immediately bat were 
referred to foe eight member 
Unions for “explanation." 

The sweetener for the Brit- 
ish Isles unions was that 
players would get no 
compensation for loss of in^ 
come when they prepare An 
any Five Nations matches or 
home internationals, while foe 
New Zealanders, Australians 
and Sooth Africans had 
wanted foe new rule also to 
apply to their own players who 
take time off work during 
visits from overseas teams. 

The problems, though, are 
not yet over. Members expect 
an almighty rumpus within the 
En glish, Scottish and Irish 
onions. The Welsh may take 
matters more calmly. 

The New Zealanders are foe

MOTOR RACING: WHAT MAKES MANSELL A MILLIONAIRE AND A HALF 

True grit on the road to riches 


Win or lose in his world 
championship Formula One 
campaign this year, Nigel 
Mansell is a hot 
property-Sheer guts and 
determination have got him 
there, plus a car which has 
enabled, him to {wove foe 
calibre of his driving skill and 
racecraft Points finishes in 1 1 
of his last 14 races contributed 
to his score of 70 as he went to 
the line in the Mexican Grand 
Prix yesterday. 

“It's been a terrific season 
and nothing can take foal 
away from me," he said. It has 
also made him a wealthy man, 
with a Canon Honda-Wil- 
liams contract for next year 
worth an estimated £1.5 mil- 
lion, with foe prospect of 
much more to come. Personal 
sponsorships, public appear- 
ances — foe floodgates have 
opened. 


From John Bltmsden, Mexico City 
Bat Mansell's powerful at- exhausting challenge of his 


tack on the world champion- 
ship means more than money. 
It gives a driver' that glow of 
personal achievement, of self- 
respect, of self-awareness. In 
foe summer Mansell said: 
“Whoever wins the title — 
Nelson Piquet, Alain Prost, 
Ayrton Senna ormc- luck 
will have played a part" 

M ansell felt foe same way as 
he went to foe line yesterday. 
He could do only so much: the 
rest would be down to Lady 
Luck. 

He knew that he had done 
all foal was reasonably pos- 
sible to prepare himself for foe 
task ahead, He also knew that 
68 laps of the Hennanos 
Rodriguez circuit in foe sub- 
urbs of Mexico City would 
constitute physically foe most 


six-year grand prix career. 

Mansell's preparation for 
the race had been meticulous. 
Since foe last race in Portugal 
there had been three days of 
high-speed test driving in 
Austria. “We used massive 
boost to try to break foe 
engine," he said, “ and our 
speed through the fast curves 
was incredible. After three 
days I was aching all over."* 

So he flew his medical guru 
in from Austria to his home in 
foe Isle of Man for three days 
of workouts. “He gave me 
everything — acupuncture, 
electrical treatment, massage, 
foe Iol" 

Mansell arrived in Mexico 
via New York in foe peak of 
fitness. In the lead-up to foe 
race he ate mainly food which 
had been flown in but even so 


be could not escape stomach 
trouble. He had a miserable 
time on Saturday between foe 
qualifying laps which put him 
third on the grid. 

For much of practice his car 
had been strong; but so had 
Piquet's and his Brazilian 
team partner was back on top 
form and would line up 
second on the grid behind 
Senna. Piquet was as deter- 
mined as Mansell to secure the 
championship. It promised a 
tough battle ahead. 

“On full tanks we are going 
to take a hell of a battering 
over foe bumps," Mansell 
said, “so I'm hoping I've got 
foe edge in stamina and can 
puli out a bit of a lead in the 
early laps. Then, if Piquet 
comes back at me later in the 
race. HI have something in 
hand."

Barnes and Steven 
forced to pull out 

By Stnart Jones, Football Correspondent 


Scots without their 
peak performer 


| 5 BKiofrhirety'W * 


Bobby Robson has been 
given no choice but to re- 
design his England line-up for 
the opening European 
championship tie against 
Northern Ireland at Wembley 
on Wednesday. Trevor Ste- 
ven. a regular member of his 
midfield, and John Barnes, 
one of his two versatile left- 
wingers. were both yesterday 
withdrawn from foe squad. 

The loss of Steven, who 
damaged a knee and an ankle 
on Saturday, is foe more 
severe. He is the only member 
of the party who is able 
naturally to operate on foe 
right flank, a role that he filled 
during foe last three World 
Cup ties in Mexico and in 
Sweden last month. 

Barnes limped off at 
Highbury, where he bruised a 
thigh playing for Watford. His 
experimental move from foe 
extremity to the middle of 
England's attack in Stockholm 
ended in similar fashion effec- 
tively within a few minutes. 
His position was threatened 
by Waddle, who is now ex- 
pected to come in instead as 
foe understudy for Steven. 

Robson, who admitted that 
Steven would have been cho- 
sen against foe Irish, said that 
foe injuries had “obviously 
reshaped my thinking. I am 
aware that Waddle played on 
foe right wing for Tottenham 
yesteday and was outstanding. 
He is more experienced than 


Cricketers 
face fines 

England and Australia have 
been given the financial in- 
centive to eliminate slow play 
from their Ashes series this 
winter. For foe first time in 
Tests, foe two sides can be 
heavily fined if they fail to 
bowl an average of 15 overs 
per hour. 

The Test and County 
Cricket Board have accepted a 
proposal from their Australian 
counterparts which will cost 
foe teams Aus$600 (about 
£265) for every over below 
that rate. It could make a 
sizeable dent in prize-money 
which is set at Aus$6,0G0 for 
foe winners of each Benson 
and Hedges sponsored Test 
and Aus$3,000 for the losers. 

Winning team 

Stephen Ronaldson, the 
head professional at Canford 
School, and Ivan Snell, a 
Canford schoolboy, won the 
Rank Xerox pro-am real ten- 
nis championship at Learning- 
ton yesterday, defeating 
Michael Gooding, the deputy 
professional at Canford, and 
Martin Pricker, from Leam- 
ington, 2-6, 6-5. 6-5 in a two- 

Jb.-V- <=-« »i . .. 


Webb and Stevens, the other 
squad members who could 
also play out wide." 

Robson, who had lost Mar- 
tin from the side beaten 1-0 in 
Sweden, is expected to make 
several other changes. He is 
sure to recall his captain, 
Bryan Robson, and at least 
one of his foreign exiles, 
Lineker. Beardsley and 
Hateley are also back in 
contention for foe place va- 
cated by Dixon. 

So is Cottee, who made his 
senior international debut last 
month. Having scored five 
goals since the squad was 
announced, there is on current 
form no stronger candidate on 
foe list of Lineker's potential 
partners. On Saturday Conee 
conceded that he would not 
believe it if he was selected. 

Robson has decided not to 
call up any replacements and 
nor will Billy Bingham, 
Northern Ireland’s manager. 
He will be without McCreery, 
who is suffering from a recur- 
rence of a groin strain and has 
been advised to rest for a 
fortnight. Bingham considers 
that he has “adequate cover in 
most positions".

SPORT IN BRIEF 


By Hugh Taylor 

The withdrawal of David' 

Cooper, the Rangers winger, is 
the most disheartening of the 
blows taken by Scotland just 
before the squad for the 
European Championship 
qualifying match against the 
Republic of Ireland leave for 
training in Dublin today. Coo- 
per was outstanding in 
Rangers’ defeat of Hibernian 
on Saturday, a master crafts- 
man who galvanized spec- 
tators with superb control and 
passing. He is at foe peak of 
his form and must surely have 
been foe attacker most likely 
to upset foe Irish defence. 

The recurrence of a groin 
injury caused Cooper to be 
taken off near the end of the 
game at Ibrox and, sadly for 
Scotland, he has had to be 
ruled out of the international 
on Wednesday. 

“With McLeish of Aber- 
deen, McAvenaie of West 
Ham United and yesterday 
Miller, foe Scotland captain, 
withdrawing through injury 
and Mai pas of Dundee United 
doubtful, Andy Roxburgh, the 
coach, is planning a new 
formation and perhaps dif- 
ferent tactics for the game. 

It is likely that Nevin, foe 
entertaining Chelsea winger, 
will take over from Cooper 
and Roxburgh was relieved to 
learn that Johnston was fit 
enough to play for Celtic 
against Dundee and score two 
goals.

Home victory

Spain, won the Barcelona 
Open golf tournament yes- 
terday when a final round of

lenger, Howard Clark, of 
Britain. 

New hosts 

Britain's first major athlet.

be staged at a new venue next 
year. The UK closed

Portsmouth, Derby or Wigan. 
Officials will inspect all three

Grafs title 

The West German, Steffi 
Graf, won foe foe last four 
games to pull back from the 
brink of defeat against foe 
Czechoslovak, Helena 
Sukova, and take the Europe- 
an women's indoor title in 
Zurich yesterday. Miss Graf 
foe top seed, trailed 4-2 in foe 
third set before fighting back 
to win 4-6, 6-2, 6-4. 

Salah again 

.Ahmed Salah, of Djibouti, 
who has won the Paris mara- 
thon twice, won the eighth 20 
kilometers race in foe French 
captial yesterday, finishing in 
a time of 57 minutes and 19

Salah beat Alessio Faustini. of 
Italy, in 57min 48sec and foe

speedway champion, swept to 
victory in the British League 
riders championship at

an easy winner with a 1 5 point 
maximum, putting him four 
points clear of his fellow 
countryman, Erik Gundersen. 
who won a four-man run-off

As Gough has -been 
outstanding at centre half for 
Tottenham Hotspur, he is 
likely to team up with Hansen, 
the Liverpool captain, as a 
new central defensive partner- 
ship if Miller is unfit The 
many critics of foe Scotland 
team who failed to distinguish 
themselves against Bulgaria 
would not believe that the 
defence would be weakened 
with the reappearance at right 
back of Stewart of West Ham. 

On a haprpier note, the 
veteran Dalglish emerged un- 
scathed from Liverpool's 
match with Spurs and Rox- 
burgh will be hoping that a 
partnership of Dalglish and 
Johnston may end foe famine 
of goals suffered by recognized 
Scottish attackers. It is a 
distressing fact that not since 
McAvenme scored against 
Australia last autumn has a 
striker really strode for the 
country. The nation's doleful 
record stands at five goals in 
sue internationals, all nvefrom 
defenders and midfield 
players. 

In the League, Rangers took 
sweet revenge on Hibernian 
for foe defeat on foe infamous 
opening day of the season with 
a captivating 3-0 display at 
Ibrox. Although their oppo- 
nents, in contrast to their fiery 
challenge in the previous en- 
counter, offered only token 
resistance. 

Olsen’s injury 
an accident, 
claim United 


Jesper Olsen's claim that he 
was punched in training by 
Remi Moses, his Manchester 
United team-mate, is being 
denied by the first division 
dub. 

The Danish international, 
who had 1 1 stitches in a cut 
over his left eye after a 
practice-match incident a 
week ago, alleged: “Following 
a tackle. Remi ran after me 
and hit me with his fisL" But 
Ron Atkinson. United's man- 
ager, insists it was an accident 
He said: “I was only four vards 
away and saw it happen." 

Martin Edwards, the club 
chairman, is also teen to see 
the matter closed. "Ron has 
told me it was a pure accident 
and l am taking foe action no 
further." he said. 

United, meanwhile, have 
another problem on their 
hands in attempting to 
counteract a bid for Frank 
Stapleton from foe Belgian 
first division club, KV Meche- 
len. The Republic of Ireland 
forward is still on a weekly 
comma at Old Trafford, but 
united have offered u> extend 
it to two years, with a reduced 
salary over the final 12
