affected by the missed oppor- 
tunity for an arms limitation 
agreement and where opin- 
ions are divided. 

Mrs Thatcher, will today 
meet the chief Soviet nego- 
tiator, Mr Viktor Karpov, and 
on Thursday she will consult 
M Francois Mitterrand, in a 
meeting expected to be domi- 
nated by the summit post 
mortem. 

Mr Shultz yesterday de- 
fended Mr Reagan’s stand on 
SDI when be met European 
foreign ministers in Brussels. 

He told them the summit 
had been a “tremendous 
success" which must now be 
built on. 

The Europeans, masking 
deeply-felt disappointment 
that arms control agreements 
had been within grasp but had 
slipped away, sided with Mr 
Shultz's up-beat interpreta- 
tion in a co-ordinated display 
of Nato cohesion and unity. 

Herr -Hans Dittrich 
Gaucher, the West German 
Foreign Minister, said it 
would take a great deal of 
diplomacy and statesmanship 
to avoid a long-term setback, 
but the process begun at 
Reykjavik “must be con- 
tinued”. 

Mr Timothy Renton, Min- 
ister of State at the Foreign 


Office — speaking for Sir 
Geoffrey Howe, who is with 
the Queen in Pelting — said 
Iceland was “not the end of 
the play, only the end of one 
act”. 

Mr Shultz briefed European 
foreign ministers and senior 
officials at Nato headquarters 
for three hours shortly after 
his early morning arrival from 
Reykjavik. He looked tired 
but determined. 

Mr Shultz said Reykjavik 
bad produced significant ideas 
and even “agreement in 
princi^e” on intermediate 
nuclear forces (INF) cuts in 
strategic arsenals, and criteria 
for nudear testing. 

European officials said they 
were keenly disappointed that 

a rfgai aboli shing medium-. 

range missiles in Europe — 
Cruise and Pershing on the 
Nato side and SS20s in Euro- 
pean Russia - had not been 
reached. 

The deal would have left 
Russia and America with 100 
medium-range missiles each 
in Soviet Asia and Alaska 
respectively, with short-range 
missiles left to future talks. 

But the officials maintained 
they did not blame Mr Reagan 
for objecting to Soviet pro- 
posals for a “radical change” 
m the Anti Ballistic Missile 
Treaty (ABM) which would 
have limited American Strate- 
gic Defence Initiative research 
to laboratories. 

Asked about European con- 
cern that Mr Reagan’s attach- 
ment to SDI was preventing 
agreement in other areas, Mr 
Shultz said there was a grow- 
ing perception that SDI — 
which be defined as “learning 
how to defend ourselves 
against devastating ballistic 
missiles” — was partly what 
had brought Mr Gorbachov to 
the negotiating table. 

The United Stales could not 
agree to a “crippling" of its 
defence programme.

Thatcher 
backs 
SDI stand 

By Martin Fletcher 
Political Reporter 

Britain yesterday gave full 
backing to President Reagan's 
refusal to accept any limita- 
tion on his Strategic Defence 
Initiative research programme 
at the Reykjavik summit 
Mrs Margaret Thatcher has 
agreed to meet the chief Soviet 
negotiator, Mr Viktor Karpov, 
at 10 Downing Street today, 
but she will tell him that the 
breakdown of talks was caused 
not by American' intransi- 
gence but by the Russians' 
“moving the goalposts” 

She will remind Mr Karpov 
of the agreement between Mr 
Reagan and Mr Mikhail 
Gorbachov at their Geneva 
summit in 1985, to the effect 
that reductions in inlennedi- 
aiorange nuclear weapons 
were not dependent on curtail- 
ing the SDI programme.

Americans Kremlin launches 
bnwefece diplomatic drive 


From Michael Binyon 
Washington 

President Reagan delivered 
a nationwide television broad- 
cast yesterday on tbe collapse 
of the Reykjavik summit, as 
United States Administration 
officials tried to put a {wave 
face on things by expressing 
hopes for a gradual resump- 
tion of arras control talks. 

Officials said that the di- 
alogue had moved ahead, and 
that it was “amazing” that tbe 
two leaders had come so close 
to agreement 

There were sharply differing 
assessments in Congress, with 
members both blaming Presi- 
dent Reagan for missing a real 
chance for arms control and 
praising him for standing firm 
on bis strategic defence initia- 
tive (SDI). 

Democrats said tbe failure 
of the talks could win them 
votes in the congressional 
elections next month. How- 
ever Republicans praised Mr 
Reagan for “refusing to 
blink". 

While the president was 
criticized for accepting an 
invitation to the ill-prepared 
meeting, there now seems no 
likelihood of a full-scale sum- 
mit in Washington. 


From Christopher Walker, Reykjavik 
The Soviet Union is launch- to try and build up pressure on 


rag a diplomatic offensive 
designed to convince public 
opinion in the world at forge 
that the breakdown of the 
Reykjavik summit was the 
sole result of intransigence by 
President Reagan on the issue 
of Star Wars. 

Soviet diplomats in tbe 
leading capitals are being in- 
structed to point out that 
because the new Soviet arms 
package remains on tbe nego- 
tiating table, a concession by 
the Reagan Adminis tration or 
a future American govern- 
ment could still lead to sweep- 
ing reductions in offensive 
nudear weapons. 

Senior Soviet officials who 
took part in the weekend 
summit will join tbe informa- 
tion drive which the Kremlin 
plans to undertake on behalf 
of its proposals. Soviet sources 
said that Mr Mikhail Gorb- 
achov, the Soviet leader, 
would also be presting borne 
the Soviet view in trips he has 
planned to India, Italy and 
other nations. 

Before leaving here for Mos- 
cow yesterday morning, the 
Kremlin officials emphasized 
that the main aim of the 
diplomatic offensive would be 


President Reagan which might 
then result in movement at 
tbe Geneva aims reduction 
talks. 

Although disappointed at 
what it terms “the failure" of 
the meeting, the Soviet delega- 
tion is convinced that Mr 
Gorbachov will have a for 
easier task selling the outcome 
abroad than Mr Reagan. 

As part of tbe diplomatic 
offensive, Mr Viktor Karpov, 
the chief Soviet arms nego- 
tiator and a close confidante 
of Mr Gorbachov will have 
talks in London today with 
Mrs Margaret Thatcher. Tbe 
decision to depute Mr Karpov 
for such an early briefing is 
seen as Soviet recognition of 
the special relationship she 
has with the White House. 

Outlining plans for the 
information drive, Mr Gecrrgi 
Arbatov, a senior Kremlin 
adviser on US-Soviet rela- 
tions said: “We wiB be very 
visible. I can assure you. Our 
policy will go on, the world is 
not limited to the US and the 
US is not limited to President 
Reag an . And President Reag- 
an can also change his mind, 
as has been shown on some 
occasions." 


Civil servants face 
curbs on evidence 
after Westland 

By Robin Oakley, Political Editor 
The Government yesterday 
flatly rejected the criticisms of 
an all-party Commons inquiry 
into the Westland affair which 
censured five top civil 
servants. 

. And it is to strike a retal- 
iatory blow at the whole 
system of select committee 
inquiries by ordering civil 
servants who give evidence to 
them in future to refuse to 
answer questions about their 
own conduct or that of named 
colleagues. 

Traditionally -the 14 select 
committees have had un- 
limited powers to “send for 
persons, papers and records” 

But the Westland Affair 
proved that there were con- 
straints on those powers in 
practice and the Government 
is now to formalize the 
restrictions. 

The Defence Select Comm- 
ittee, chaired by Sir Hum- 
phrey Atkins, a former 
Conservative Cabinet Min- 
ister, made swingeing criti- 
cisms in their report: published 
in July of Mr Leon Brittan, 
former Secretary of State for 
Trade and industry, of Sir 
Robert Arms tro ng, Cabinet 
Secretary and. Head of the 
Home Civil Service, and of 
other top civil servants indnd- 
ing Mr Bernard Ingham, tbe 
Prime Minister’s Press 
Secretary. 

Sir Robert was accused of 
foiling to give the example and 
the tod he should have dime 
by conducting an internal 
inquiry into the leaking of a 
letter from Sir Patrick 
Mayhew, QC, five Solicitor 
General, containing damaging 
criticisms of Mr Michael 
Heseitine, the then Defence 
Secretary, when be must have 


known at the outset that tbe 
leak had been authorized. 

In its official reply to the 
committee's report yesterday, 
tbe Government firmly stood 
by Sir Robert, repeating ear- 
lier ministerial statements 
that he had exercised leader- 
ship with great responsibility 
and integrity and again reject- 
ing the suggestion that the 
roles of head of the civil 
service andof Cabinet Sec- 
retary should be separated. 

it admitted that the Solic- 
itor General's letter should 
not have been leaked without 
his permission but said that 
Mr Brittan had accepted full 
responsibility and apotogiz 
for the disdosure.'The Gov- 
ernment is satisfied that those 
concerned acted in good faith 
and remains of the view that, 
having regard to all tbe dr- 
eam stances, disciplinary 
were not called 


• The Government's reply 
reiterated the Prime 
Minister’s “total confidence' 
in the officials concerned. But 
it went much further than 
that, insisting : “The Govern- 
ment does not believe that a 
select committee is a suitable 
instrument for inquiring into 
or passmgjudgcment upon tire 
actions or conduct of an 
individual civil servant". 

The Government argues 
that a civil servant is con- 
strained m his answers by his 
duty of confidentiality and the 
instructions he has been given 
by a Minister and therefore 
cannot speak freely in his own 
defence. 

Select committee question- 
ing may be affected by politi- 
cal controversies. 


Report will clear RUC 
of shoot-to-kill charge 

By Michael Evans, Whitehall Carr ep ond e nt 
Allegations of an official way the security authorities 


Mitterrand 
will not 
stand for 
re-election 

From Diana Geddes 
Paris 

President Mitterrand aston- 
ished France last night by 
announdng that he would not 
stand for a second term as 
President. 

It bad been widely assumed 
that the first Socialist Presi- 
dent under the Fifth Republic, 
whose popularity ratings have 
recently risen to an almost 
record high, would at least 
keep bis options open until the 
Last minute, if not actually 
stand again. 

Recent polls had shown that 
he was the Socialist leader 
most likely to defeat any of the 
candidates presented by the 
Right. Furthermore, he had 
the virtually unanimous back- 
ing of other leading Socialists. 

However, asked about his 
intentions during a visit to the 
Caylus military camp in the 
Tam el Garonne yesterday, M 
Mitterrand, who will be 70 on 
October 26, replied: “Every 
time I think about this matter 
everything leads me to say: 
'No. 1 will not be a candidate.' 

“I do not push ambition so 
far as to wish to install myself 
for good in this post ~ Could 
events take place which would 
make me say: *WeU I’ve made 
a mistake'? I don’t think so.” 

M Mitterrand will be 71 in 
May 1988 when the next 
presidential elections are due; 

Whatever happens. Presi- 
dent Mitterrand’s place in 
history is already assured. He 
has shown that peaceful politi- 
cal change is possible in 
France by demonstrating that 
the Socialists can not only 
govern but can govern welL 
He has also shown for tbe 
first time that “cohabitation" 
between the Right and Left is 
possible, and that the institu- 
tions of the Fifth Republic are 
flexible enough to adapt to the 
radical change in the style of 
government involved. 


Dragon’s 
eyes 
fit for 
a Queen 

From Alan Hamilton 
Peking 

With courage befitting a 
traveller to mystic lands, the 
Queen last night dined on sea 
slug and dragon's eyes. And 
what is mote, she ate them 
with chopsticks. 

She wielded her unaccus- 
tomed eating implements with 
a skill that suggested long 
hours of private practice, and 
baulked not at all at the exotic 
fore presented at a glittering 
1 0-course banquet given in 
her honour by the Chinese 
President. Mr U Xiannian. in 
the Great Hall of the People. 

Experienced observers said 
the feast was marginally less 
lavish than usual presumably 
as a result of the recent visit to 
London by the Chinese Pre- 
mier. Mr Hu Yaobong, when 
he was impressed by the 
Queen's thrift in serving him a 
Buckingham Palace lunch of a 
mere three courses. 

But it was still impressive 
enough. Among the courses 
were chicken soup with jas- 
mine blossom, assorted sea- 
food delicacies including sea 
slug and shark's fin. steamed 
mandarin fish, a kind of small 
lychee known as dragon's 
eyes, almond tea. and a 
mousse made of green peas. 

Seated between the Presi- 
dent and the Prime Minister, 
whose joint presence was re- 
garded as an unusual honour, 
and in front of a draped Red 
Flag and Union Jack, the 


Tbe Queen yesterday pre- 
sented China with a £1 million 
gift for Chinese scientists to 
carry out research work in 
British laboratories over the 
next three years. The offer, 
announced at the , state ban- 
quet in Peking, means that 30 
post-doctoral scientists win 
come to Britain for one-year 
“royal fellowships" in a move 
to improve bilateral trade and 
science relations. 


Queen was made to feel more 
at home by the band of the 
People's Liberation Army 
pfaying such familiar airs as 
GreensJeeves and the Water 
- Mnsic written by Handel for 
George II. 

The Queen looked properly 
regal in a heavy pink silk crepe 
dress decorated with clusters 
of peony, the Chinese national 
flower. She wore a tiara, an 
object probably not seen in 
China since the end of the 
Imperial Dynasty in 191 1, and 
a diamond and ruby necklace 
and earrings. 

The table decorations bor- 
dered on the unworldly. In 
front of the Queen, five fish 
swam in a pot under bridges 
made of water melon slices,- - 
while the central table was 
adorned with two large model 
peacocks. 

The Queen praised the Joint 
Declaration on the future of

shoot-to-kill policy against ter- 
rorists in Northern Ireland are 
expected to be rejected in the 
report by Mr Colin Sampson, 
Chief Constable of West 
Yorkshire. 

Mr Sampson, who took 
over tbe inquiry into the 
allegations against the Royal 
Ulster Constabulary from Mr 
John Stalker. Deputy Chid 
Constable of Greater Man- 
chester, has still not com- 
pleted bis investigation, but 
his report win be handed over 
within the next two weeks. 

It is expected to raise a 
whole range of serious disci- 
plinary issues connected with 
tbe shooting of six civilians in 
Ulster four years ago — which 
will lead to calls for a shake-up 
in the way undercover opera- 
tions are monitored. 

However, intelligence 
sources were adamant yes- 
terday that tbe findings would 
have no great impact on the 


operate. 

Acquittal on the “charge" of 
an official RUC shoot-to-kill 
policy is seen as crucial by the 
military authorities in Ulster 
because of the very dose 
relationship between the 
Army and the police. 

The policy in Northern 
Ireland is one of “police 
supremacy"and all operations 
undertaken by the Army have 
to be authorized by the RUC. 

A spokesman for the Min- 
istry of Defence said yes- 
terday: “We are keeping 
close watch on the outcome of 
ibis inquiry." 

During the Sampson in- 

S , the security authorities 
it quite dear that there 
was no question of any shoot- 
to-kill policy. 

What was at stake was the 
possibility of certain police 
officers believing they could 
get away with killing sus- 
pected terrorists during under- 
cover operations. 


Awful disquiet in a Brighton estate 


By Brian James 

The wall of the Assembly 
Hall at Monlsecoomb was 
brilliant with the colours of 
childhood: a birthday card list 
the best from last week's 
drawing test, and paper pas- 
tiche scenes of a Red Indian 
camp. But the adult world 
stridently intervened with two 
new' bright orange posters 
declaring: “Stranger — 
Danger”. 

About 200 infants crouched 
on the floor. They were dearly 
unsettled, not by the blue 
uniforms of PC Mac and PC 
Matt because the community 
polieman and school’s liaison 
officer are old friends, but 


There were some terrible 
resonances in this room. On 
one wall a group of photo- 
graphs was labelled “A pow- 
wow in Wild Park”. Wild Park

San Salvador (Reuter) - A

More than 90 children have

Salvadorean officials, who 
fear further tremors could

to Bart’s merger 


St Baitbatomew's Hospital Medical College, one of the 
world's most acclaimed medical institutions, yesterday 
ended Its resistance to plans for a mover between its pre- 
clinical school and two other tendon University 
colleges(Mark Dowd writes). 

The merger details, first announced by the University 


Grants Committee in November 1983, proposed that the 
school be merged with Queen Mary College and London 
Hospital Medical College, effectively ending Bart's intake 
of pre-dinical students. 

Then, in December last year, consultants at the hospital 
created a storm by opposing the £13 million proposals, say- 
ing the project was a waste of money. 

Revised plans now meet with their approvaland 
representatives from the college told Mr Justice Kennedy, 
in the High Court yesterday that they no longer wished to 
proceed with their action for jndidal review of the UGC 
decision.

reached an agreement on 
pay, ending die dispute 
that lead to an overtime 
ban which halted produc-

week. 


The deal, believed to be 
be an improvement on the 
company's 5 per cent pay 
offer, will be reconmiended 
to the 6,000 Lucas workers 
by their shop stewards at

The overtime ban, which 
led to 12,000 lay-offs at 
Austin Rover, was lifted 
last Thursday.

High seas high tech 


Government and industry are combining to research the 
possibility of Britain producing a high technology ship 
which could help to revive the nation's flagging shipping 
and shipbuilding industries (Rodney Cowton writes). 


It is felt that merchant shipping has been left behind by 
such industries as aerospace in the application of advanced 
techniques including information technology and inte- 
grated computer systems. 


The Department of Trade and Industry's Efficient Ship 
Project is trying to encourage industry to see whether these 
technologies could provide an alternative route to direct 
competition with the low-cost and price-anting shipping 
activities of less developed and communist countries.

Airport rail link call 


A call for a direct rail link to Heathrow airport from cen- 
tral London was made yesterday by the airport’s watchdog 
body which also said consideration should be given into a 
new road link. 


In its annnal report, the Heathrow Airport London 
Consultative Committee says the scheme, serving both the 
central area and future development to the West, is 
essential. 


It points out that Gatwick has a direct link, and another 
is planned for Stanstcd and that the benefits to passengers 
of short journey times, modem, purpose-built trains, 
proper baggage facilities and an end to long escalator 
journeys were “overwhelming”.

Anti-nuclear protesters in

High Court judge in London 
discharged 30 out of a total of 
50 people named in an injunc- 
tion restraining them from

Protesters claimed the

opposition

fee sharing 


By Frances Gibb, Legal Affairs Correspondent 

The Bar is to abolish its rule would be required in appro- 
against purse-sharing, ■ under priale cases to disclose such 
which banisters have been arrangements, “to prevent a 
prohibited from pooling their potential conflict of interest” 


money to provide pupillages 
or tenancies for young bar- 
risters. 

The issue has come to a 
head because of the radical 
Wellington Street chambers 
under Lord Gifford, ( QC, 
which for many years has bad 
the Bar’s only fee-sharing 
system. 

The chambers runs a kind 
of co-operative, by which all 
fees are pooled and each 
barrister draws the same 
monthly salary. Some of the 
remainder goes to pay a salary 
to pupil barristers, who tra- 
ditionally have to struggle on 
the smallest of incomes. 

In general, chambers are 
allowed to provide pupil 
awards from their income but 
none has opted for the pooling 
of foes or fixed salaries pro- 
vided at Wellington Sum. 
Partnerships and the sharing 
of receipts are both prohibited 
under the profession’s code of 
conduct 

The Bar’s planning commit- 
tee investigated the matter last 
year but decided against disci- 
plinary proceedings without 
first looking at whether the 


injustice. 

Mr Alexander said that 
there no longer seemed to be a 
need to prohibit purse-shar-

“legally enforceable and m the 


public interest. 

The committee, under Mr 
Nicholas Phillips, . QC, has 
now recommended a change 
in the rules to allow puree- 
sharing, although partnerships 
will still be prohibited. The 
changes have been endorsed 
by the Bar Committee, the 
profession’s executive body, 
and are expected to be ap- 
proved by the Bar Council. 

Mr Robert Alexander, QC 
said yesterday that the Bar was 
against partnerships because 
one of the essential qualifica- ' 
lions of an independent Bar 
was that solicitors and liti- 
gants could have, the widest 
possible access to its services. 

At present, barristers from 
the same chambers could 
appear against one another. 
Partnerships would make that 
impossible and therefore re- 
duce client choice, he said. 

That did uni apply to purse- 
sharing, although barristers

ing chairman of the Criminal 
Bor Association, is befog 

taken to comt by his former 
pupil barrister over alleged 
arrears in maintenance pay- 
ments for their child. 

Miss Felicity Ha mm ertoe, 
aged 35, has taken out a 
summons against Mr Cocks 
due to be baud on November 
25 for what she ctofom to be 
non-payment of arrears of 
£351. 

At the recent hearing to 
obtain the summons at Maiy- 
lebone Magistr a tes 1 Court, 
she maintained he had foiled 
to adjust the standard rate of 
tax and had continued to 
deduct 35 per cent although it 
was now 29 per cent 

As a result, on the basis of 
calculations since 1980, she 
argues £351 was owed to her. 
Mr Cocks, who is reputed to 
earn 290,000 a year, said last 
night he coald not comment on 
the allegations.

Gifford's chambers maintains 
that purse-sharing gives

in less remunerative areas. 

Mr Neill Morrison, deputy 
secretary of the senate, said 
that although most barristers

such a scheme, it was a way of 
giving young barristers greater

The position of a black hole 
a! foe centre of oor galaxy, the 
Milky Way, has been identi- 
fied by measurements that can 
be made only once every 19 or 
so years. 

Astronomers at the new 
British observatory on La 
Palma, in the Canary Islands, 
have exploited a rare event to 
probe the mysteries of the 
centre of the galaxy. 

Tbeir opportunity came 
nidi the first of three occa- 
sions when, as the Moon 
orbits the Earth, the centre of 
the galaxy is obscured from 
ground -based telescopes. 

Measurements of die black 
hole depended on observations 
as the edge of the Moon began 
| moving across die part of the 


sky where the centre of the 
galaxy is believed to fie. 

The only observatory from 
which this occnltation was 
risible was the 2J5 metre Isaac 
Newton Telescope, bnflt for 
British astronomers by the. 
Science and Engineering Re- 
search Council on La Palma. 

The black hole at the heart 
of the Milky Way, placed 
30,000 light years away from 
Earth, is believed to be sur- 
rounded by a vast disc of dost 
that It consumes. The radi- 
ation generated from the dost 
as it is sucked into die black 
hole is one of the indirect 
measurements. 

Infra-red maps of the part of 
the sky called IRS-16 have 
provided a muddled set of 


objects, according to 
astronomers. 

The chance to use the Moon 
as a shutter has enabled the 
scientists to separate the im- 
ages into a dearer picture and 
identify the Made bide. 

Infra-red equipment built at 
Leicester University was at- 
tached to the Isaac Newton. In 
20 seconds, more than 1,000 
measurements were made as 
the edge of the Moon moved 
across the galactic centre. 3 

The new picture was assem- 
bled by analysing when each 
source of infra-radiation was 
extinguished. 

The next occulations will be 
in Hawaii next year. After that 
it will be necessary to wait 19 
years to try again. 


The BBCs television cover- 
age of the aftermath of the 
American bombing of Libya 
in April forms the basis of a 
complaint prepared by the 
Conservative Party. It is ex- 
pected to be submitted soon to 
the BBC parliamentary and 
broadcasting industry sources 
said yesterday. 

The Conservative case 
against the BBC will rely in 
particular on a detailed analy- 
sis of reports by the BBC 
correspondent Miss Kate 
Adie. 

The reports, which included 
distressing scenes of children 
said to have been injured in 
the bombing, were prepared 
after she had taken a bus tour 
organized by the Libyans. 

Conservative Party officials 
have conducted a comparison 
of BBC coverage and that 
presented by Independent 
Television News, and found 
the BBC coverage to be tanta- 
mount to Libyan propaganda, 
the sources said. 

The examination was 
prompted by the personal 
anger of Mr Norman Tebbit, 
the Conservative Party chair- 
man. who is said to believe 
that the coverage was designed 
to embarrass the Government

right-wing organization within

The programme, which in-

with the organization, used 
pictures of National From and

Britain’s biggest Civil ser-

accusations of ballot riggiffig. 
and counter claims of domina-

since foe election of Mr 
Macreadie. M , 

The independent Electoral 
Reform Society was called 1 fa 
to examine the ballot after Mr 
Maoeadie defeated Mr John

deputy general secretary, by 
20,424 votes to 2&303. It 
ftautd no hard evidence of 
ballot rigging, bat discovered 
sufficient irregularities to 
recommend a fresh election. 

Before the election is re-ran, 
the executive is to examine 
methods of making foe voting 
process more obviously demo- 
cratic. Many members believe 
that hard left tactics in holding 
branch ballots at inconvenient 
times and at remote locations 
were instrumental in getting 
Mr Macreadie elected. 

Mr Ellis and his colleagues 
on the executive are known to 
favour a central voting system, 
whereby each individual will 
receive a ballot paper to post to 
an independent returning offi- 
cer. At present, voting papers 
are distributed at work

A retired Civil Servant who l 
had been a wartime RAF pilot * 
allowed his home to be used as i 
the base for a “killing party" J 
which murdered an assistant 
governor of the Maze Prison, 
it was alleged yesterday. 

The assassination was- 
planned after the Civil Ser-; 
vant, who had Provisional- 
IRA sympathies, gave, 
information about the prison - 
officer's home. Belfast Crown 
Court was told. - 

Mr John Creaney, QC said« 
that foe main Crown witness 
would be Owen Connolly, the 
Civil Servant, who was serv-; 
ing a life sentence for his part 
in the murder of foe assistant 
prison governor. Mr WULianr 
McConnell aged 35, outside 
his home in Belfast in 1984. .! 

Three men, Eugene GD- 
martin. aged 28, Martin-Mur- 
phy, 28, and James Me-’ 
Aleenan. 27, deny murdering 
Mr McConnell who was shot 1 ' 
in from of his wife and' 



daughter, aged three. 

The men, all from Belfast 
also deny possessing a- re- 
volver and machine pistol 

A warrant was issued for the 
arrest of Mr Sean Hayes, aged 
25, who failed to appear after 
being released on bail on a 
charge of possessing guns used 
in foe killing. 

Mr Creaney said Connolly!; 7 
would tell the court bow 
“killing party” of two men and 
a woman arrived at his house - ; 
the night before the murder, 
left early in the morning and . 
returned after the shooting. . 

A diary found on Mr Mur-, 
phy had a ‘■positive- 
connection” with Connolly. 

The trial continues today. '!

yesterday made a desperate 

JJJPj, f0r , mfoiTn a J jon to 
track down the “animal" who 
had murdered his daughter 
J^rBame Fellows. aged 37, 
refused to make any t< J 
the kilter. “1 don’t think 1 have 
any pleas to make to that 

man that man ls ^ anima] 

line has a conscience, lei him 
come forward.” 

He urged that anyone who 

r e u Cn ,3 scra P ofinforma- 
tion should contact the police. 

Mr Fellows said he hoped 
that the murderer would not 
turn out to be. as police 
believe he is. a resident or the 
large Moulsecoomb council 
estate where both girls lived. 

“I would like to think he 
doesn’t. 1 would like it to be a 
stranger.” Mr Fellows said. 

His daughter Nicola, aged 
10, and her friend Karen 
Hadaway. aged nine, were last 
seen alive on Thursday eve- 
ning when they set left their 
homes in Newick Road to buy 
fish and chips. 

After a massive police hunt, 
their bodies were found lying 
together in dense undergrowth 
in woods at Brighton's Wild 
Park,, just across the A27 dual 
carriageway from the 
Moulsecoomb estate. 

Mr Fellows made his plea as 
Sussex police launched the 
biggest manhunt ever seen in 
Brighton, with special empha- 
sis on the Moulsecoomb hous- 
ing estate. 


By David Sapsted 

. ,ast pfchu more than 
1.000 people bad spoken to 
members of a squad of 160 
officers. 

Sussex police said: "We 
plan to talk to everyone — 
parents, grandparents, chil- 
dren, everyone. We are taking 
lime to question them closely, 
not just to ask them whether 
or not they saw anything.” 

By the end of the week 
police hope to have visited 
every one of the 2,000 homes 
on the estate and interviewed 
an estimated 7,000 people. 

If reports were true that the 
gills had been taken away in a 
diny blue car, then Mr Fel- 
lows said that they either knew 
the man or were forced in. 

He said neighbours had 
been grief-stricken about the 
deaths and were enraged by 
them. 

“When I found out they had 
been sexually assaulted 1 
would have killed him then, if 
I could have found him. Can 
you imagine a girl sitting there 
seeing her friend getting 
strangled? 

“It's a terrible, terrible thing 
- why me?” 

Mr Fellows warned parents 
to keep their children indoors 
during the dark winter eve- 
nings. 

His wife Susan was too 
distraught to be at yesterday’s 
press conference and is staying 
with her sister in London. 

The man heading the hunt 
for the double murderer, Det 
Supt Bemie Wells, said yes- 
terday that somebody must be 
screening the killer and said- 


they should come forward 
both for the murderer's sake 
and more especially, the sake 
of other children in Brighton. 

Police were yesterday visit- 
ing schools in the area warning 
them of the dangers of going 
with strangers or even people 
they know. 

Mrs Michelle Hadaway, 
29, Karen's mother, said 


:e believed that her daughter 
must have known her killer, ft 
was “someone she knew, she 
trusted, she liked”. Mrs 
Hadaway said. 

Mrs Hadaway, who is six 
months’ pregnant, said her. 
daughter was not the son of 
girl. lo talk to strangers. She 
reared that the killer lived on 
the estate. 

She said that her daughter 
Lindsey, aged five, was miss- 
ing her sister and crying a lot 
And she said that for the sake 
of other children anyone who 
had any information should 
come forward. 

“All the time they are 
protecting them the more 
likely this person is to go and 
do it to some other child,” Mrs 
Hadaway added. 

She said she now suspected 
everyone and was even look- 
ing suspiciously at people she 
had known for years.' 

Meanwhile, police have 
praised the “magnificent” re- 
sponse from the public to the 
appeal for information. 

Local people have so far 
raised more than £8,000 as a 
reward to be offered for the 
conviction of the killer.

House prices increased by 4 
percent in the third quarter of 
the year, the same rise as in the 
previous quarter, and giving 
an annual increase of 12 per 
cent to the end of September, 
according to the latest house 
price survey by the Nation- 
wide Building Society. 

The society says the 4 per 
cent increase for the UK 
showed that rises were not 
abating, and that they were 
caused by the ready availabil- 
ity of mortgage finance, and 
the continuing rise in Teal 
incomes. 

The annual rate of house 
prices increase. 12 per cent, 
was 2 per cent higher than in 
the second quarter, and if the 


By Christopher WannaiL, Property Correspondent 

present high level of housing 
activity continued it was likely 
that the annual rate of rises 
would be dose to IS per cent 
by the end of the year. 

As the rate of increase 
continues well in excess of the 
increase in average earnings 
(7.5 per cent), the Nationwide 
points out that the house 
price/eamings ratio has in- 
creased to 3.54, compared 
with the longrterm average of 
3.25, making it slightly more 
difficult for prospective 
purchasers to buy. 

The society reports that 
almost all of the significant 
house prices rises during the 
third quarter were in the 
South-east, and that the recov- 


ery in prices -away from 
London, which had appeared 
in the second quarter, seemed 
to have been shortlived. 

House price changes in the 
quarter ranged from an in- 
crease of 5-7 per cent in the 
South-east, with London the 
highest at 7 per cent, com- 
pared with rises of only 1-2 per 
cent in most of the rest of the 
country and a fall of 1 per cent 
in the North. 

Greater London, as with all 
the surveys, shows the greatest 
increase during the past year, 
21 per cent The South-east 
recorded a 16 per cent in- 
crease, and tiie North only 3 
percent 


MPs seek law. 
to preserve 
school sports 

By Nicholas Wood 
Political Reporter 

Local education authorities 
should be forced to make 
“proper provision” for com- 
petitive sports in their schools, 
a group of backbench Conser- 
vative MPs is insisting. ■ 

Mr William Cash, Conser- 
vative MP for Stafford, has 
tabled an amendment to the 
Education Bill, to be debated 
when the Commons returns 
next week, requiring local 
authorities to ensure that all 
children aged seven and over 
have every opportunity to 
play games. 

The move reflects alarm 
about the decline of team 
games such as cricket, soccer 
and rugby under the impact of 
spending restraints and ega- 
litarian education philos- 
ophies. 

Mr Cash said yesterday he 
had the support of many of his 
colleagues and the Central 
Council for Physical Rec- 
reation. which has been in the 
forefront of the campaign ip 
revive die competitive spirit 
on school playing fields. 

*»I don’t want to drive 
children against their will on 
to a freezing cold rugger pitch, 
bui 1 do want to give diem the 
opportunity to play the game 
if they wish. Because they 
don’t believe in competitive 
sport, some of these left wing 
authorities arc depriving chil- 
dren of the opportunity to take 
part.” he said. 

However, it is unlikely that 
Mr Kenneth Baker. Secretary 
of State for Education and 
Science, will accept Mr Cash s 
amendment. Although he is 
on record as deploring tne 
“sour and pessimistic dis- 
missal of the competitive 
spirit", he is believed to regard 
the amendment as impractical 
because not all schools can 
offer the range of sports listed.

A Syrian intelligence officer 
ordered a Jordanian journalist 

to use a girl to plant a bomb on 
an El A1 jet flying out of 
Heathrow Airport, an anti- 
terrorist squad officer told the 
Central Criminal Court yes- 
terday. 

“He Add me to' use the girl 
because .it is more secure,” 
Nezar Hindawi, aged 32, the 
journalist, of bo fixed address, 
allegedly told the police. 

Mr Hindawi, accused of 
using his pregnant girlfriend. 
Miss Ann Murphy, also aged 
32, as a human timebomb iu an 
attempt to blow op the Israeli 
plane, has alleged he was 
recruited by Syria. He 
denied attempting to blow up 
the jet on April 17 with 375 on 
board. 

Det Sergeant William Price, 
of the anti-terrorist squad, 
said Mr Hindawi churned he 
was warned by the Syrians 
that If he said anything about 
it to the authorities, “in less 
than 24 hoars a quarter of my 
family would he dead”JHe 
allegedly said he had more 
than 500 of his family in Syria. 

Sergeant Price said Mr 
Hindawi told him that after 
Miss Murphy booked a flight 
on the jet he raid her to change 
it 

“I wanted her to keep 
changing the ticket so she 
would get fed up and I would 
escape and finfah this,” Mr 
Hindawi allegedly said. 

Seargeant Price sail, that 
Mr Hindawi also told him the 
Syrians were dealing with the 
IRA. 

He said Mir Hindawi ex- 
plained why, after hs arrest, 
be first told police he believed 
the package he gave Miss 
Murphy contained only drugs. 

Hafthan Said (the Syrian 
intelligence officer) told urn to 
say the story about drugs or 
they will loll my family.” 

Mr Hindawi was asked if he 
found it difficult to face the 
fact he was going to blow up a 
plane, the officer said. 

Mr Hindawi allegedly re- 
plied: “The key in the cal- 
culator which should be in the 
off position to go bang, I pot it 
on on. I did not want It to go 
off” 

The detective challenged 
him on why be had asked Miss 
Murphy to take it on the plane 
in that* case. He replied: “I 
must take the bag. I was 100 
per cent sure that security 
would catch it and Said would 
know i sent it.” 

Mr Gilbert Gray, QC, for 
the defence, suggested that the 
threatened to send Mr 
wi to Israel after his 
arrest and that the Israeli 
tee service, 
would shoot him. 

Seaigeaat Price denied that 
Mr Gray accused the detec- 
tive of gemg to Mr Hmdawf s 
cell in the night and 
him “If we let you out 1 
will shoot you. We, the Brit- 
ish, will look for the man who 
shot you but he wfl] escape.” 

The officer toM the jury: 
“No, absolutely not.” 

Mr Gray: “You told him the 
British Government would ar- 
range for him to go to Israel in

Sergeant Price: “I did not.” 
Mr Gray: “You toM him he

Yacht rescued after 25 days adrift 

By Richard Ford 


Two fishermen hope they 
have landed their most valu- 
able catch with the discovery 
of an abandoned yacht flouting 
off the west of Ireland. 

They rescued tire 45ft 
aluminium-hulled Sentigen as 
it drifted towards rocks off 
County Galway. 

The Dutch-owned yacht was 
abandoned in a force nine gale 
off the Azores 25 days ago 
while its owner, a retired 
doctor, and his wife were 
sailing from New York to The 
Netherlands. 

Today Dr Cornelius den 


Hartog, aged 68, is due to 
arrive in the remote village of 
Clifden to reclaim his vesseL 

The fishermen, Mr John 
Roberts and Mr Dents Keane, 
are planning to negotiate a 
salvage fee running into thou- 
sands of pounds. 

Dr Hartog said that the 
yacht which he has owned for 
nine years, is worth £50,000 
and he is prepared to offer the 
two men £5,000. But they 
Haim it fs worth much more 
and that the fee should be 
higher. 

The yacht was spotted three 


miles out to sea and, according 
to Mr Roberts, it would have 
hit rocks within 30 minutes 
had they not taken it under 
tow. 

Dr Hartog ami his wife; 
Gcrda, aged 68, abandoned 
the yacht 600 mfles west of 
Ireland when their food ran 
out after enduring storms for 
eightdays. 

A cargo ship answered their 
distress call and took them to 
New York from where they 


flew home

The Bamber trial 


Parents ‘fought for lives’ 


. The parents of Jeremy 
Bamber put up a desperate 
struggle for life as their son 
allegedly murdered them, a 
jury was told at Chelmsford 
Crown Court yesterday. 

Dr Peter Vanezis, a Home 
Office pathologist, said that 
during the course of Nevill 
Bomber’s fight for survival be 
received two black eyes, se- 
vere cuts and bruises to his 
face and bead — injuries 
consistent with an assault 
from a rifle bntt 

Mr Bamber, aged 61, who 
was shot eight times with a 
shotgun, was probably fighting 
for his life until the first of four 
head wounds killed him. 

Dr Vanezis said: “In my 
opinion he was no longer 
struggling when the four shots . 
to his head were fired but with 
all the other wounds he obvi- 
ously was. These wore fired 
while he had been 
immobilized.” 

Nevill Bamber’s wife June, 
who was shot seven times, 
probably used her arms and 
tegs in an automatically defen- 
sive way to ward off the shots 
fired at her. 


By Michael Horsneti 

Before she received two 
shots through the head, which 
were quickly fatal, she was 
also wounded in. the neck, 
right arm. right knee and twice 
in the cbesL 

Jeremy Bamber, aged 23, a 
farmer's son from the village 
of Goldhanger, Essex, close to 
his parents' farmhouse at 
Tolleshuut D’Arcy, denies 
murdering June and Nevill 
Bamber, his adoptive parents, 
Mrs Sheila Caffell his step- 
sister, and Nicholas and Dan- 
iel, her twin sons. 

The twins were shot in the 
head as they slept. 

Under cross-examination 
by Mr Geoffrey Riviin, QC 
Dr Vanezis agreed that unlike 
the other two adult murder 
victims, there was nothing to 
suggest that Mrs Caffell had 
tried to fight off her attacker. 

Mrs Caffell, aged 27, the 
former London model known 
as “Bambi”, who was orig- 
inally suspected by police of 
having carried out the mur- 
ders before committing sui- 
cide, died from two near- 
contact wounds through the 
neck. 


A firearms expert suggested 
that she could not have killed 
herself 

Mr Malcolm Fletcher, a 
ballistics officer from the 
Home Office forensic science 
laboratory at Huntingdon, 
told the court that with the 
silencer fitted to the .22 rifle 
which was used to slaughter 
her family at their remote 
farmhouse last year the 
weapon would have been too 
long. 

Mr Fletcher said that he 
.experimented with three fe- 
male volunteers close to Mrs 
Caffell’s height of 5 ft 7'Ain to 
see if they could reach the 
trigger with the muzzle of the 
gun pointed to their necks: 
they failed. 

The prosecution has alleged 
that Mr Jeremy Bamber re- 
moved the silencer after 
shooting her and hid it 

The silencer was later found 
by relatives three days after 
the murders, after police had 
overlooked ll Inside the bar- 
rel her blood had penetrated 
more than two inches. 

The trial continues today. 


Marquis arrested ‘in opium den 9 


The Marquis of Blandford 
was supplied with cocaine by 
the owner of a menswear 
shop, Knightsbridge Crown 
Court iu London was told 
yesterday. 

Mr Angelos Sawides, aged 
37, who took the drug himselfi 
let the shop basement be used 
as “an opium den”„ it was 
alleged- ft was there Lord 
Blandford. heir to the £60 mil- 
lion Blenheim Palace fortune, 
was arrested, the court was 
told. He was not carrying 
drugs at the time. 

The role of Mr Sawides was 
outlined by Mr David Bate, 


QC during the trial of Law- 
rence Zephyran, alleged drugs 
dealer. 

Mr Bate said the den, below 
A and S Menswear in 
London’s Edgware Road, be- 
longed to Mr Sawides. 

During cross-examination 
of a police officer, Mr Bate 
said Mr Sawides was a user of 
cocaine and obtained drugs 
from another person and was 
supplying Lord Blandford and 
using it, himself. Lord 
Blandford has already admit- 
ted possessing cocaine and Mr 
Sawides, of Hyde Park Man- 
sions, Gabell Street, Maryte- 


bone, has pleaded guilty to 
allowing the Edgware Road 
premises to be used for the 
preparation, taking and sup- 
ply of cocaine. 

Shortly after the police raid. 
Mr Zephyr, described as a 
“major drugs dealer”, arrived 
with cocaine, worth £2,300 

Mr Zephyr, aged S3, of 
Asmore Road, Maida- Vale, 
west London, denies four 
charges of possessing and 
supplying cocaine, three fire- 
arms charges and one of 
having an offensive weapon. 

The hearing continues 
today.

Call for ecumenical day of peace 


The Archbishops of Canter- 
bury and Westminster, Dr 
Robert Runcie and Cardinal 
Basil Hume, jointly appealed 
yesterday for national prayers 
for peace on October 27 , the 
day leaders of all . the main 
world' religions are to join 
Pope John Paul O for a “day 


of prayer” at Assisi Italy 
(Clifford Longley writes). 

The archbishop and the 
cardinal will both be in Assisi 


Dr Runcie hading the delega- 
tion from the An g li can 
Comm union, and Cardinal 
Hume as President of the 
Council of European Bishops’ 
Conferences. 

At a joint press conference 
at Lambeth Palace, Dr Runcie 
said the. outcome of the talks 
between Mr Gorbachov and 
President Reagan were 
“deeply disappointing”, al- 
though he felt insufficient 


information had emerged so 
for to make a judgement 

The two English church 
leaders will join leaders of the 
Jewish, Muslim. Hindu, Bud- 
dhist Sikh and Shintoist 
faiths for a series of cere- 
monies and prayer meetings. 

Or dinal Hume called for 
prayers- that there should be 
no repetition of the two world 
wars and that nuclear weapons 
will never again be used.

Professor Cook, consultant

it achieved dunag the 1960& 

Which is why he and the

tonight be feting guests from

They iednde Sue Pollard, 
the actress who plays the

1950 s, a period when new

One of Britain's most

bracing Uself for » double 
rebuff from Mr Kenneth 


Baker, Secretary of State fcr 
Educauon and Science* over 
its schemes for teacher ap* 
nraisat and measuring foe 
performance of schools. ■ 

Conservative-can trotted 
Croydon is among nearly 20 
authorities competing 10 pin. : 
ncer appraisal in the woke of 
the outline agreement on 
teachers' pay and cooditions 
reached at Covenuy tn July. 

It believes that pupil perfor- 
mance should be one of the 
main criteria for sMB t i ig 
teachers* work. , . 

It argues that raising eduefe 
lional standards must be the 
main goal of appraisal, while 
the other authorities empha- 
size teachers* career develop- 
ment and better overall 
management of staff. v... 

Mr Baker is expected to 
announce the six winners to 
conduct pilot schemes at the 
end of this month. The results 
wiU be used to draw up 4. 
national framework covering 
teacher assessment. 

Croydon is also pressing for 
fends from the research bud- 
get of the Department of - 
Education and Science to bdp 
it with a project examining the 
(inks between education! 
expenditure and output. 


But it is likely to be <&■

understood that Mr Baker 
believes that the Croydon 
scheme is too tough , and that 
including it among the pace- 
setters would inflame 
teachers* unions- 


Yesterday, Mr Donald 
Naismith, director of educa- 
tion for Croydon, said he was 
aware of suggestions that his 
authority would not be among 
the chosen six. 

Over the past two years, 
Croydon has angered teachers' : 
unions by introducing a series 
of measures aimed at makteg 
schools more accountable to 
parents and ensuring value for ‘ 
money. They include; 

• Standardized testing of 
dren in English and 
mathematics at the ages of 
seven and 1 1 and releasing fee 
results to parents. 

• Publication of a parental 
guide to the curriculum. 

• Collaboration with a City- 
based company of manage- 
ment accountants on 
objectives for comparing 
schools. . ■* 


Glasgow’s ‘bus war’ 
resulting from 
vigorous competition 


HOUSE OF LORDS 


The “bus war” in Glasgow has 
led to 350 buses an hour being 
driven along Ren field Street, the 
House of Lords was told today. 
Lord Brahazan of Tara, Under 
Secretaiy of State for Transport, 
said that if the vigorous 
competition between buses in 
Glasgow were to produce severe 
congestion, the traffic 
commissioner could “determine 
appropriate traffic regulation 
conditions” in response to a 
request from the traffic 
authority — in this case 
Strathclyde Regional CounciL 
JHie traffic commissioner's 
office in Scotland told The 
Times that no request for 
conditions to be imposed had 
yet been received, but meetings 
were being held to uy 10 achieve 
some agreement be t we en the 
traffic authority and the various 
opera tore engaged in Glasgow. 

If no agreement emerged from 
these meetings, a request for 
conditions to be imposed, such 
as the use of certain routes, 
could be made to the 
commissioner. The 

commissioner could act at once, 
but ifa bus operator objected, an 
inquiry would have to be held. 
Lord Brahazon of Tain said in 
the House of Lords that the 
Transport Act 1985 had been 
intended to encourage 
competition and thus to benefit 
bus passengers. • There was 
vigorous competition in 
Glasgow. 

The question was raised by 


in other cities when there was 
complete deregulation. 

Lord Brahazon of Tara said that 
the traffic commissioners' 
power to make conditions 
would apply in other areas, if 
needed. 

Lord Campbell of Croy (CV In 
Glasgow there are buses in 
search of waiting passengers, an 
exact reversal of the situation 
which obtained until recently. 
That is a wricome change for the 
public. 

Lord Brahazon of Tara: He is 
right. We were told during the 
passage of the Transport Bill 
that the buses would disappear 
Now it seems that the opposite 
has happened. 

Lord Underhill (Lab) said that 
at certain peak periods, 350 
buses an hour were using 
Renfield Street and that meant 
congestion. If that were to 
continue, would steps be taken 
to collate information for the 
bus passengers? 

fori Brahazon of Tan reprated 
that regulation was a matter for 
the traffic commissioner. 

Lard Somers said that one way 
in which the buses would 
compete would be to try to 
arrive at destinations more 
quickly than their competitorc 
and that could be a serious 
threat to road safety, 
fori Tordof T said that public 
money was being used to try .to . 


swamp private opera to r s trying 
to operate within the terms of 
the Act. Public money was still 
going into transport in Scotland 
in quite a big way. 
fori Brabazao of Tara: The 
Government is keeping in touch 
wifli the competitvc situation 
and if any evidence emeses, the 
Government will take die 
appropriate action, as doubtless 
will the Office of Fair Trading.

there was a little more than 
vigorous competition and be

Films and 
pop fare 
best on 
cable TV 

By Jonathan Miller 
Media Correspondent ' 

Pop music and films are 
doing better on cable tele- 
vision than sport and art, 
according to' new research. 

But Independent Television 
and BBCl still do better than 
any of the new programme 
services created to service 
cable television. 

A survey of 670 cable 
households in Britain, con- 
ducted by AGB Gable and 
Viewdata, the research com- 
pany, shows that 90 per cent 
of cabled homes watch ITV 
every week and 87 per cent 
watch BBCl. 

The most popular cable 
service is the mm channel. 
Premiere, which attracts 76 
per cent of the audience every 
week. Mr Rupert Murdoch’s 
Sky Channel, which pro- 
grammes light entertainment 
with a heavy dose of pop 
videos, reaches 49 per cent of 
the audience. 

The survey shows that cable 
viewers prefer Channel 4 and 
BBC2 to most of the new 
services created for cable. 
Channel 4 readies 4$ per cent 
of the audience while BBC2 is 
viewed by 45 per cent. Screen 
Sport and the Arts Channel 
reach 28 per cent and 4 per 
cent respectively. 

• Sky Channel now reaches 
seven million homes in 
Europe, an increase of a 
million in five months. 

The fastest growth is in 
West Germany where con- 
nected homes have reached a 
million. 


Ex-PoWs step up campaign 


Twenty-five British former 
prisoners-of-war who rl»ftn 
they were used as “guinea 
pigs" in germ warfare experi- 
ments, conducted by Japanese 
doctors, have stepped up their 
campaign for compensation 
from the Japanese 
Government. 

The men, who spent op to 
four years in the Mukden 
PoW camp hi Manchuria 
daring the Second World War, 
have again appealed to Mrs 
Margaret Thatcher to take up 
their case. 

Their spokesman, Mr Ar- 
thur Christie, aged 65, of 
Bryncir, north Wales, said 
yesterday that American 
survivors from Mukden and 
other camps in Japan and 


By Trudi McIntosh 

Korea, had just completed 
giving evidence to a Congres- 
sional bearing before the 
House Veterans Affairs sub- 
committee on compensation, 
pension and insurance. 

The American PoWs are 
campaigning for a 60 per cent 
disability pension for aB 
PoWs in the United States, 
irrespective of the camps in 
which they were interned. 

Although a decision on the 
hearing wiB not be known for 
some months, Mr Christie 
said that Mrs Thatcher could 
no longer ignore the “terrible 
injustice facing the last few 
British survivors. 

“We want a faU pnhBc 
inquiry in Britain, similar to 
the Washington hearing. It is 


the very least the British 
Government can do -after 
sweeping the matter under tire 
carpet for the past decades," 
Mr Christie sahL 

Copies via diary kept by the 
British PoWs of fife behind 
the barbed wire at Mukden 
were given in evidence at the 
American hearing. 

“We are net after rev e nge 
but troth and justice. We don’t 
want competition from the 
British Government. The 
Japanese G ov ernment should 
be made to pay comp ensa tion 
to the British survivors." 

Mr Christie said that only 
25 out of the 87 men who 
returned to Britain from Muk- 
den, have managed to reach 
the age of 65 and over.

23, said the men came into the 
room screaming and yelling. 

“They ripped the sheets off 
the bed and told ns to get up. 
get out and go home to 
mummy. They insulted us and 
called ns cows," she said. 

Miss Kristy Kistier. aged 17, 
said: “It was horrible. They 
watched two other naked girls 
getting dressed in spile of 
being asked to leave." 

Mr Robin Marshall, aged 
28, the spokesman for the 
squatters, sakfc“Three heavily . 
buDt men stormed into my 
bedroom on the second floor 
and dragged me out of bed. I 
ran outside and phoned the 
police." 

Police officers halted the 
eviction and told the gang that 
they would need a court 
eviction order. 


Three features of the plan- 
ning system cause widespread 
resentment and suspicion. 
One is the exclusion of farm 
buildings. 

If you want to erect a 
carefully designed office block 
in the countryside, you must 
seek local council permission, 
it instead, you are a farmer 
and want to put up a corru- 
gated barn with a tractor shed 
attached, you do not have to 
ask anybody, no matter how 
enraged the neighbours may 
be. 

Further resentment is 
caused by “deemed planning 
permission", which enables 
councils to award themselves 
leave to put up new buildings. 
The logic is impeccable. The 
law says that if you want to 
build something substantial, 
you must ask the local plan- 
ning authority. If yon are the 
local p lanning authority, then 
you must ask yourself. 

When the Commons Select 
Committee on the Environ- 
ment took evidence on the 
planning system eariy this 
year, it heard many com- 
plaints about “deemed per- 
mission”. Mr Graham Eyre, 
QC, an inspector at the in- 


quiry in the eariy 1980s into 
the proposal to build 
London's third airport at 
Stansted aerodrome. Essex, 
described that as “a curious 
machinery" of which advan- 
tage could be taken. 

“It is not that it is. it is flat 
people think it is. Unless you 
change the system radically, 
you will not get rid of the 
psychological barrier that the 
layman feels,” he said. 

The trend towards decision 
by appeal is the third cause of 
discontent with the planning 
system. If you apply to your 
local council for permission to 
build something, and are re- 
fused, you can appeal to 
ministers. Most such appeals 
are derided by inspectors ap- 
pointed by ministers, rather 
than by midisters themselves. 

More and more such ap- 
peals are being upheld, which 
means that developers can 
leapfrog local derision-mak- 
ing. The percentage of upheld 
appeals has risen from 25 to 
41 per cent in 10 years. Iflocal 
questions are to be derided 
increasingly by central gov- 
ernment, why then have local 
scrutiny at afl?

MPs’ last 
chance for 
change on 
tunnel Bill 

By Martin Fletcher 
Political Reporta 

MPs considering the Chan- 
nel Tunnel Bill today begin 
their final IJ-day session of 
hearings before making 
amendments that could cru- 
cially affect the financial 
viability of the tunnel project 
itself, of the south coast ports 
and of the rival ferry 
companies. 

In theory, the select 
committee was convened to 
examine only the Bill's effect 
on private interests but in 
practice it seems likely to go 
for beyond that limited remit. 

The tunnel's opponents, 
notably Seal ink ferries, have 
repeatedly emphasized the 
dangers of allowing passengers 
to travel through the rail 
tunnel while in their vehicles. 

The select committee is also 
aware of attempts to use the 
hearings as a public platform 
from which to undermine the 
confidence of the tunnel's 
allegedly nervous financial 


However, ai least one MP 
has threatened to produce a 
minority report if the commit- 
tee does not address the 
question of safety, and other 
committee members broadly 
support him. 

It is not impossible that the 
committee could can for the 
separation of passengers from 
their cars, thereby adding 
millions to the project's cost 
and seriously eroding the 
tunnel's time advantage over 
the ferries. 

While the Transport and 
General Workers' Union will 
attempt to raise die question 
of safety again this week, the 
British Pons Association is 
likely to emphasize the im- 
portance of fair competition, 
giving a warning that up to 
100,000 jobs could otherwise 
be lost over a period of time io 
ports throughout the country. 

Again the tunnel’s oppo- 
nents win argue that it is 
unfair that the ferries have to 
separate passengers from ve- 
hicles while the tunnel does 
not. • 

The committee may call for 
the ferry companies to be 
released from an Office of Fair 
Trading ban on them co- 
operating with each other, 
enabling them to stagger their 
sailings rather than running 
simultaneous and competing 

sailing s.

squarely on the shouldereof Sovfet ^ ’ 

hawks within the Reagan 
Administration. ■ 

Senior Soviet sources made 
char before Mr Mikhail Gor- 
bachov, Uie Soviet leader, left 
here yesterday for Moscow, 
that no realistic possibility of 
holding the scheduled Wash- 
ington summit now existed 
unless there were clear indica- 
tions that the Reagan Admin- 
istration was willing to 
compromise the stand on Star 
Wars which it took in Iceland. 

“This is a moment of 
truth" said Mr Georgi 
Arbatov, head of Moscow's 
influential USA and Canada 
E ^Institute and one of Mr 
^Gorbachov’s closest advisers. 

1 “1 think it is very important 
what happened at Reykjavik 
because from now on. a lot or 
fig leaves have been shed and 
a lot of things are absolutely 
naked." 

The bespectacled and quick- 
witted official was one of a 
number of Soviet advisers 
whom the Americans believe 
were instructed to issue clev- 
crty-slanted leaks about the 
weekend talks at a crucial time 
in the negotiations in order to 
increase pressure on President 
Reagan. 

Both Mr Arbatov and Mr 
Yevegny Velikhov, a leading 
member of the Soviet arms 
control team, chose to break 
the news blackout agreed by 
both governments to present 
the world with the tantalizing 
notion that major cuts in 
nuclear arsenals were just 
around the corner. 

Senior Western observers 
are convinced that the leaks 
were pan of a Soviet strategy 
to bring Mr Reagan to the 
hastily-arranged “pre-summit 
summit" in Iceland and then 
to depict him as the main 
obstacle to peace if - as 
happened — it foiled to reach a 
single concrete agreement 

US officials point out that 
the leaks, one to Tass and the 
other to the BBC were timed 
to pressure the American team 
just before the crucial extra 


tactics were again 
clearly displayed by Mr 
Arbatov in a sharply-worded 
interview after the summit 
collapse. He was asked what 
Mr Gorbachov had meant 
when be said that the Kremlin 
would wait while the Ameri- 
cans reflected on the. con- 
sequences of what bad 
occurred m Reykjavik on 
October 1 1 and 12. 

“It is simply that nobody 
can accept on such a question 
(as the potential elimination 
of nuclear weapons) Amer- 
ica s ‘no’ as an answer,” Mr 
Arbatov replied. "It is impos- 
sible, we just cannot allow it 

6 ‘A lot of fig leaves 
have been shed and a 
lot of things are 
absolutely naked 9 9 

It is the life of everybody at 
stake, so it has to be done. So 
we can wait, but not wait 
sitting idle." 

He claimed that he person- 
ally^ had been “over-confid- 
ent” that the Americans 
would accept the Soviet arms 
control package. 

This still remains on the 
table but, after Reykjavik, 
appears umbilically linked to 
a US climbdown on Star 
Wars. The package was de- 
vised at a number of top-level 
Moscow meetings in recent 
weeks during which Mr 
Gorbachov is understood to 
have come under strong pres- 
sure from the Soviet military 
establishment (the most 
hawkish element in the coun- 
try) not to agree to any 
concessions without securing 
a ban on weapons in space. 

The influence of the mili- 
tary . planners was dem- 
onstrated by the important 
role played on Saturday's 
marathon 1 OV^-bour overnight 
negotiating session by Mar- 
shal Sergei Akhromeyev, the 
Soviet Chief-of-StafF. “The 
close involvement of the mili- 
tary in the political side of 
arms control is one reason 


seize the propaganda advan- 
tage,” one Western source 
explained. 

Despite genuine disappoint- ■ 
mem on the Soviet side at 
Sunday's failure to secure ' 
what both svdes-agrecd would 
have been unprecedented cuts 
in uud ear arsenals (as op- 
posed to the limitation only 
agreements reached until 
now), there was also satisfac- 
tion among Mr Gorbachov’s 
advisers that once again they 
had emerged with an advan- 
tage over the Americans, who 
will have a harder job sdling 
President Reagan’s decision to 
the world . 

Soviet sources here noted 
that, as in Geneva last 
November, Mr Gorbachov 
had also been able to score a 
considerable tactical advan- 
tage by staging an immediate, 
post-summit news conference, 
while President Reagan chose 
to leave immediate explana- 
tions of the summit's dra- 
matic collapse to his Secretary 1 
of State. 

At the press conference — 
held in a cinema from which 
posters of the Ram bo-style 
American film Top Gun had 
been hastily removed by the 
Icelandic authorities — Mr 
Gorbachov turned in a vin- 
tage performance. 

One of the few hopeful signs 
to emerge flora account of a 
negotiating failure was Mr 
Gorbachov's lack of personal 
antipathy towards Mr Reagan. 
“My impression is that we can 
deal with President Reagan,” 
Mr Gorbachov said. “We can 
continue dialogue with him, 
we can work together.” 

As a result of the indefinite 
postponement of the Wash- 
ington summit, and by defi- 
nition the 1987 one which 
should have taken place in 
Moscow, the only theatre left 
for dialogue appeared to be the 
long-running nuclear arms 
reduction talks in Geneva. 

“They (the talks) have got to 
get out of the swamp.” said Mr 
Arbatov, without explaining 
how the negotiators could 
progress in face of the obstacle 
of a linkage toStar Wars on all 
proposals made ai Reykjavik. 
“They have to make a new 
impetus now and they have to 
make a new beginning.”

A window of opportunity beginning to close 


At Reykjavik, as so often 
before, arms control negotia- 
tions seemed to promise a 
great deal and ended op 
delivering bo thing. Two ques- 
tions immediately arise: why 
did the mind-summit end with- 
out formal agreement? And 
what hope is there now for 
fntnre negotiations 



Mr Paul Nitre, left, President Reagan's special arms talks adviser, with the West German 
Foreign Munster, Herr Hans-Dietrich Genscher, at Nato HQ in Brussels yesterday. 


Whitehall view 


The immediate cause of this 
deeply disappointing break- 
down is the US Shir Wars 
plan — the Strategic Defence 
Initiative: according to one's 
viewpoint, one can either 
blame Mr Gorbachov’s appar- 
ently last-minute insistence 
that without new restrictions 
on Star Wars there would be 
no deal, or one can blame Mr 
Reagan's apparently inflexible 
determination to go ahead 
with this debatable project. 

However, immediate causes 
are not necessarily fun- 
damental traes- East-West 
aims control talks have ran 
into tronble too often in the 
past for one single contem- 
porary explanation to suffice. . 

They have ran into tronble 
because of the high level of 
distrust; because of nervous- 
ness about monitoring and 
ensuring compliance with any 
agreements; because of ex- 
treme difficulties in defining 
exactly what is permitted or 
prohibited ooder agreements; 
because of concern on the part 
of military leaders; and be- 
cause of fears that one aspect 
or another of an agreement 
will be advantageous to an 
adversary or harmful to an 
ally. 

In the immediate aftermath 
of Reykjavik, each side 1ms 
Mamed the other for the 
breakdown of the talks — 

Poland briefing 


though so far in fairly re- 
strained terms. Thus arms 
control, as so often, served as 
an instrument of political 
warfare. 

In fact weaknesses in the 
arms control approach itself — 
weaknesses which affect both 
sides — have to explain the 
failure. 

Despite the expectations in- 
evitably raised by a summit, 
the most that amid have been 
hoped for from Reykjavik was 
a very preliminary broad- 
brash agreement oatiming the 
main features of a possible 
fntnre treaty. 

Turning such agreements 
Into treaties is a slow and 
tricky business at the best of 
times — witness the five years 
it took to ton the November 
1974 Vladivostok Mend on 
inter-continental missiles into 
the fll-foted and anratified 
Salt 2 treaty of 1979. 

Reykjavik had seemed to 
open up a “window of 
opportunity” for arms control 
precisely because President 
Reagan, with two years left of 
his presidency, bad just 
enough time to secure the 
passage of an agreement 


through the difficult phase of 
treaty-making and the equally 
hazardous phase of congres- 
sional ratification. Time is 
now naming ont on that hope. 

As this window of opportu- 
nity begins to dose, can any- 
thing be salvaged from the 
shambles? 

Many will still hope so, 
including those who supported 
American rearmament in the 

6 It was all or 
< nothing. It is not 
surprising they shied 
away from a deal 9 

hope that ft could lead to 
genuinely equal measures of 
disarmament, and those Euro- 
pean Nato governments which 
have adhered firmly to the 
moltilateralist Site through 
seven lean years in which 
there have been no newagree- 
medts and much public 
scepticism. 

Any arms control progress 
In the next few years will 
probably involve selecting 
particular issues which are 
capable of solution by formal 
agreement. 


The whole history of arms 
control is one of fixing on 
issues more or less on their 
own: Antarctica in 1961, 
nuclear tests in 1963, biologi- 
cal weapons in 1972, and most 
recently, at Stockholm, the 
observation of military 
maneonvres. 

By contrast, the negotiators 
at Geneva in the past few years 
have taken on three important 
sets of issues - intermediate 
nnclear forces, inter- 
continental nuclear forces, and 
space weapons - and they 
have in the event been unable 
to disentangle them from one 
another. 

Fmthennore, their work has 
focused largely on numerical- 
limit type agreements, which 
hare an uninspiring historical 
record and hare the unfortu- 
nate side effect of making 
numbers seem especially 
significant 

Both the US and the Soviet 
Union hare been guilty in the 
past few years of putting 
forward schemes for the mas- 
sive reduction of nuclear weap- 
onry which were grandiose but 
lacking in detail. At Reykjavik 
this seems to have happened 
again. 


Iceland glum after summit failure 


Reykjavik (AFP) - Iceland- 
ers. beginning with Mr 
Steingrimur Herraannsson. 
the Prime Minister, yesterday 
expressed bitter disappoint- 
ment at the failure of the 
summit 

“1 have to admit it was 
disappointing,” Mr Hermann- 
sson said at the reopening of 
two schools which had been 
borrowed as press centres by 
2,000 ' news people from 


around the world to cover the 
weekend meetings. 

A journalist with Icelandic 
radio, Ingimar Ingimarsson, 
said that among people he 
talked to there was a fear that 
Reykjavik might become a 
associated with failure in the 
public mind. 

Two schoolgirls said they 
had to stay at home on Sunday 
afternoon because the main 
road, which also leads to the 


airport, was sealed off in 
anticipation of President Rea- 
gan's departure from before 
3pm until just before he left, 
some five hours late, at 
8.45pm. 

The managing editor of the 
left-wing newspaper Thjodvil- 
jinn said bitterly on Sunday 
night that be felt the American 
delegation had behaved badly 
towards Iceland. 


Ministry surprised at 
Russian insistence 

By Peter Davenport, Defence Correspondent 


Soviet allies await their cue 


Senior Ministry of Defence 
officials yesterday admitted 
their disappointment at the 
failure of the Reykjavik sum- 
mit, but said they were surp- 
rised that the Russians had 
been so firm in their insistence 
on linking I he US Strategic 
Defence Initiative (SDI) with 
arras control agreements. 

In pre-summit discussions 
between Whitehall and Wash- 
ington, the Government had 
been folly aware of how far 
President Reagan was prepar- 
ed to go in his efforts to secure 
a major initiative including the 
suggestion of the coiapipfe 
removal of cruise and Pershing 

missiles from Europe- 

Howerer despite the geno- 
me disappointment at the fail- 
ure to conclude an agreement, 
the Government remained 
“very supportive” of the 

American position over the re- 
fusal to abandon Star Wars re- 
search. 

There was an awareness 
(hat (he Soviet leadership 
would be out to extract the 
maximum propaganda vahw 
out of their insistence that it 
was only President Reagan's 
seeming intransigience on Star 
Warsthatstood in the way of a 
major arms reduction agree- 
ment. 

Although the UK and West 


Germany have agreements to 
join research on the project, 
several other Nato countries 
have considerable doubts 
about the wisdom and practic- 
alities of SDI and they could 
well surface when the Nato 
nuclear planning group meets 
at the deneagles Hotel in 
Perthshire next week. ■ 

A senior Whitehall official 
said yesterday: “The position 
now could well raise questions 
from some European allies on 
whether ft was really worth 
chucking a,lot of 
away for the sake or 

But one former Chief of the 
Defence Staff warned: “Al- 
though all the Maine is being 
put on Reagan it must not be 
forgotten that the Soviets have 
an anti-ballistic missile sys- 
tem in place and are moderniz- 
ing, while the West has no 
ABM system. It seems quite 
reasonable to me for Reagan to 
say to the Soviets, *if you want 
me to give up Star Wars, you 
remove your ABM system' 

Another former occupant of 
the position said sack an ag- 
reement would have made a 
nonsense of the reason for hav- 
ing Cruise and Pershing 2 in 
the first place; that of provid- 
ing a flexible nuclear response 
and as a symbol of US com- 
mitment to European defence. 


Mr Nikolai Ryzhkov, the 
Soviet Prune Minister, ar- 
rived in Warsaw yesterday for 
talks with the Polish leader- 
ship that will include a brief- 
ing on the Reykjavik summit. 

The visit, planned wefl be- 
fore the weekend meeting 
between Mr Mikhail Gorba- 
chov and President Reagan, 
fits into a network of top-level 
consultations between Mos- 
cow and Hs allies that will 
culminate in a Warsaw Pact 
foreign ministers session in 
Bucharest this week. 

Above all, Moscow’s allies 
need reassurance. The com- 
mon view is that when the 
superpowers sneeze, the War- 
saw Pact catches cold and 
sometimes has to endure a 
long period of quarantine 
from the West. 

Many East European lead- 
ers are planning to step West- 
wards spots: Herr -Erich 
Honecker, the East German 
leader, wants to embark on his 
long-postponed visit to West 
Germany: General Wojriech 
Jaruzelski. the Polish leader, 
wants to travel to Italy and 
have an audience with Pope. 
The Bulgarians and Hungar- 


From Roger Boyes, Warsaw 

ians are also planning ex- 
peditions to the West, albeit at 
a less elevated level. 

The good news for the Pact 
is that these trips are probably 
still on. There is to be no all- 
embracing East-West depres- 
sion. diplomats in Eastern 
Europe say. 

“What wfl] probably change 
is the content of East-West 
political talks,” one analyst 
explained. “There will now be 
an all-out crusade against Star 
Wars.” 

The tone of East European 
press coverage of the summit 
yesterday showed how the 
Pact win use the Reykjavik 
failure: American obstinacy 
over the Strategic Defence 
Initiative is holding np a 
breakthrough on intermedi- 
ate-range missiles in Europe 
and strategic weapons control. 

The headline in the Polish 
Communist daily Trybuna 
lical: “F 


Ludu was typi 
does not exploit the historic 
chance to limit nuclear arms.” 

The mission of East Euro- 
pean visitors - especially to 
countries like West Germany 
who are associated with SDI — 
is to drum up support for 

World reaction 


demanding new concessions 
on Star Wars from the Ameri- 
cans. That restricts the nego- 
tiating space somewhat for a 
man like Herr Honecker, who 
wants to make his trip to West 
Germany — perhaps his last as 
party leader — an occasion of 
historic importance for the 
two Germanics. 

The main concern for Po- 
land is how the indeterminate 
outcome of Reykjavik win 
affect US sanctions against 
Warsaw. It has been clear for 
some time that Washington 
was about to lift some or all 
the remaining sanctions, 
which include a freeze on new 
credits - and suspension of 
Most Favoured Nation trad- 
ing status. 

But this move was predi- 
cated to some extent, on a 
successful summit that would 
usher in a new ponefliatory 
phase in East-West relations. 
Diplomats say that the US will 
probably lift sanctions any- 
way, but the announcement 
may be delayed and the 
decision more cautiously im- 
plemented than might other- 
wise have been the case.

New York (AP) - Initial 
world reaction to the Reyk-

cluded a significant measure 
of disappointment, but in- 
cluded calls that the lack of 
progress not be allowed to 
spur the arms race or threaten 
world peace.

Icelandic capital ended with- 
out any accord on nuclear

Japanese Prime Minister, said 
last night “I highly value the 
efforts by the two leaders in 
the summit It is very regret- 
table that they foiled to reach a 
final agreement Judging from 
the outcome, we can tell that 
the undercurrent in the inter- 
national situation is very 
severe.” 

Mr L6o Tindemans. the 
Belgian Foreign Minister, said 
he was “slightly disappointed, 
but I am not without hope. If 
it is true that the Strategic 
Defense Initiative blocked an 


accord in the end, there is still 
hope. 1 really believe the 
Americans and Soviets will 
reach a compromise on Star 
Wars.” 

The French newspaper, Le 
Figaro, saw the summit result 
as “in the end. salutory. Mr 
Gorbachov's insistence on 
obtaining from Mr Reagan the 
abandonment of his space 
defence project has dissipated 
the ambiguities on which the 
Soviet leader played so clev- 
erly to seduce the American 
and European public.”

The hopes that the}' would 
concentrate on a preliminary 
accord on one single matter — 
intermediate nuclear forces — 
were dashed. In the end it was 
all or nothing. It is not 
surprising that they .shied 
away from a deal 

Something could be 
salvaged from Reykjavik. On 
Sunday evening Mr George 
Shultz said the two leaders 
“had laid the foundation for 
some important potential 
agreements on cutting strate- 
gic and medium-range arms”. 
These will doubtless be taken 
to the Geneva drawing board. 

However, they have no 
chance of being implemented 
unless a more serious attempt 
is made to abstract out of the 
complex web of strategic rela- 
tions those subjects which are 
suitable cases for treatment 

In a grossly over-armed 
world there is no shortage of 
candidates. Possible cases in- 
dude nuclear testing, dis- 
cussed at Reykjavik; measures 
to prevent surprise attack; 
chemical weapons; and the 
maintenance of Salt 2 and the 
Anti-Ballistic MissOe Treaty. 

Above all, this failure of 
arms control diplomacy places 
an obligation on states not to 
place all their eggs in the 
fragile basket of new arms 
control accords. 

They need not only to 
conduct their relations in a 
cautious manner, bid also to 
construct their military poli- 
cies to be manifestly defensive, 
without benefit of the increas- 
ingly incredible alibi that they 
are arming in order to disarm.

Mafia fights 
for control of 


bridge pay-offs 


from Peter Nichols, Rome 


Forty people, allegedly be- 
longing to the Calabrian Ma-, 
fia, have been arrested after an 
investigating judge in Reggio 
Calabria issued 75 warrants at 
the weekend. 

■ The writs follow a year of 
investigations, interception of 
telephone «lk and evaluation 
of testimony supplied by Ma- 
fia members in prison, and 
refer largely to Mafia groups at 
work in Reggio Calabria. Villa 
San Giovanni, 'one of the 
terminals for ferries to Sicily, 
and Fiumara di Mura 

The court . described the re- 
sults as being "of enormous 
significance” at a time when 
organized crime in the Reggio 
Calabri a area has escalated, 
with estimates of a killing 
committed every 72 hours. 
The Mafia murder toll 
readied 81 in the province of 
Reggio Calabria, which has a 
population of less than 
300000- 

The seriousness of the situa- 
tion m Calabria has been over- 
shadowed by Mafia activities 
around the mass trial in 
Palermo of accused mafiosi 

One theory explaining the 
renewed outburst of Mafia 
violence in Calabria is that 


Mafia groups are seeking to d-

to control the territory, which

is shortly expected to be rich 
in payofre as a ptan t o bu ild a 
bridge across the strait to 
Sicily takes shape. 

This also explains renewed 
Mafia activity on the other 
side of the water in Messina, 
where organized crime wants 
to lay its hands on the large 
sums due to be spent on the 
construction of die bridge. 

There is a parallel aim of 
bringing the Sicilian and Cala- 
brian Mafias into a closer 
woridng relationship. 

They already collaborate in 
the drug trade, but to improve 
the prospect over a wider field 
of joint profits what is seen to 
be required is a “pax mafia”, 
which would permit a rational 
division of future spoils. 

This can only be achieved 
when one group becomes 
strong enough to establish a 
position of dominance. 

A particular speciality of the 
Calabrian Mafia is highly 
lucrative kidnappings aided 
by the mountainous terrain of 
the Aspromonie where it is 
almost impossible to find a 
captive hostage.

In an effort to give coavme- 
ing proof of India's technologi- 
cal capability to the American 
Government, Mr Caspar 
Weinberger, the US Secretary 
of Defence; was taken on a

to-date military production 
plants yesterday. 

India is anxious to show the 
US that h is sophisticated 
enough to be able to safeguard 
technological secrets, ami not

Mr Weinberger was taken 

to Bangalore, the capital of the

and shown over Hindustan

Aeronautical Development 
Authority (ADA). At ADA he 
was given a comprehensive 
look at India's light combat 
plane project, the first attempt 
to build an entirely Indian 
fighter, for which American 
help is now being sought. 

Ihe Indians are keen to 
acquire as much technology as 
possible, without' essentially 
shifting their foreign policy 
attitudes.

will take place today, in the

From Michael Hamlyn, Delhi 


Relations between India 
and Pakistan, which normally 
vary from cold lo tepid, are 
going through a -serious frost. 

Accusations and counter- 
accusations over the Karachi 
hijacking of a Pan American 
jet, over the assassination 
attempt on the Indian Prime 
Minister, Mr Rajiv Gandhi, 
and a new growth of ill-will 
over the disputed state of 
Jammu and Kashmir, are 
creating a bitter autumn chill. 

Pakistan has not exactlv 
been accused of complicity in 
the assassination attempt on 
Mr Gandhi, but it thinks it 
has, and resents it. In any case, 
Mr Gandhi made his views 
pretty dear when interviewed 
by an Australian television 
network. He told his ques- 
tioner “Incidents in Karachi 
24 hours before the attempt 
are indicative that these Sikhs 
came from there." 

He said there was a run on 
the foreign exchange markets, 
the Indian rupee fell, there 
were many phone rails, and he 
added: “We have some other 
information also that I'm not 
at liberty to disclose at this 
point." 

The Indian Government 
constantly sees the Pakistani 
hand in Punjab terrorism, and 
has a huge file of confessions 
from infiltrators caught cross- 
ing the highly porous border 
between the two neighbours, 
which implicates Pakistan in 
training and equipping them. 

The Indians are still angry 
with Pakistan over the bun- 
gling at Karachi airport which 
led to the deaths of 21 Pan 
American passengers and the 
wounding of 100 others, most 
of them either Indian citizens 
or foreigners of Indian blood. 
Despite the urging of the 
Indians, no full report on the 
hijack has yet been made 
public. 

A reference to punishment 
for the hijackers in the text of 
the Pakistani Fbreign Min- 


ister’s statement to the UN 
General Assembly was not 
included in his actual speech 
— which the Indians also 
regard as sinister. 

The Indian Consul-General 
in Karachi, Mr A flab Seth, 
and the Indian Ambassador in 
Islamabad, Mr S.K. Singh, 
have both been in Delhi this 
week, for what the Govern- 
ment calls routine consulta- 
tions, but which the media 
have described as plainly con- 
nected with the present re- 
verse in relations. 

The Indians are especially 
incensed, however, over the 
Kashmir issue. They believe 
that this problem should be 
settled bilaterally between the . 
two countries, a belief re- 
inforced by the terms of the 
Simla agreement of 1972. 

Pakistan, which entered the 
Simla agreement having lost a 
war. its eastern province and 
more than half its population, 
feels that it stands more 
chance of gaining Kashmir if a 
referendum could be held 
there under the terms of the 
United Nations resolutions 
which ended ihe first Indo- 
Pakisiani war. 

Pakistani leaders, then, of- 
ten refer to their willingness to 
settle the Kashmir issue 
“under the terms of the Simla 
agreement and United Na- 
tions resolutions", a formula 
which never fails to antago- 
nize Delhi. 

This year Mr M. K. Juncjo. 
the Pakistan Prime Minister, 
made the reference in his 
speech to the General Assem- 
bly. and the Indians were 
more than usually annoyed, as 
they had been sensitized ear- 
lier by the presence in Harare 
for the non-aligned summit of 
Mr K. H. Khurshid. a leader 
of the so-called Kashmir Lib- 
eration League. 

India's feelings are made 
more sensitive by the in- 
flamed situation in the Indian 
state itself.

Strike hits 
main port 
in Sweden 

From Christopher Mosey 
Stockholm 

Damaging industrial action 
was stepped up by public 
sector workers in Sweden 
yesterday. 

Gothenbmg, the country's 
main port was at a standstill 
for shipping as crane operators 
went on strike, and the unions 
also announced a national 
strike of 20,000 municipal 
workers storting on Monday. 

They will join 600,000 sate 
and municipal workers al- 
ready either on strike or 
banning overtime in support 
of a claim for pay parity with 
the private sector. 

Stockholm's underground 
was affected for the second 
Sunday in a row 
The strikes are the first real 
test for Mr Ingvar Caiisson, 
the Prime Minister, who took 
over earlier this year after the 
assassination of Mr Olof 
Palme. The industrial action 
represents a threat to Mr 
Caiissoo’s Social Democratic 
Government’s anti-inflation- 
ary policies.

Party pa 

In the second of two articles. 
Christopher Thomas reports 
from Lafayette. Louisiana* on 
the many conflicting forces 
that make the South one of the 
most intriguing, unpredictable 
questions in American politics. 

The South sits at the top of 
many statistical piles. It is the 
least urban, the poorest the 
most religious, the worst edu- 
cated, the most conservative 
(among whites), the most 
liberal (among blacks), has the 
greatest unemployment, the 
largest percentage of Mack 
people, the most tickle and 
also the most polarized voters. 

The towns are sprawling 
outwards, some with op- 
timism, others with grimy, 
inner-city wretchedness. 
Many rural areas are de- 
populating. The rich get 
richer, the poor poorer. Blacks 
think and vote Democrat, 
whites think Repabfican and 
mostly vote Democrat It is a 
region of opposites, of super- 
latives, of inconsistenries. 

Therefore nobody can be 
quite sure what the Sooth will 
do in the ami-term elections on 
November 4. In the critical 
battle for control of the Senate 
it certainly poses more threats 
to the Republicans than the 
Democrats. Of the four 
Republican- held Senate seats 
op for grabs, only one — in 
Georgia — is considered safe. 

Id Florida, North Carolina 
and Alabama the vote might 
go either way. 

The Senate has a knife-edge 
53 to 47 Republican majority, 
and the South has the power to 
take it away and denude 
President Reagan of orach of 
his power for the next two 
years. The House of Repre- 
sentatives is firmly’ *” fo* 
Democrats’ grip, and a second 
hostile chamber would be 
catastrophic for the Repub- 
licans. 

The region that was once so 
thoroughly ignored by Wash- 
fsgton is today feted and 
courted and very much needed. 



Both Democrats and Repub- 
licans are in something of a 
panic about what the Sooth 
might or might not do. "The 
audience are in their seats, and 
we are the show they’re going 
to pay attention to," Mr 
Harrison Hickman, a leading 
Democratic pollster, observed. 

The muddled political scene 
in the South was farther 
confused by the Christian 
right's takeover last June — 

The changing 
face of Dixie 

after an eight-year power bat- 
tle - of the influential South- 
ern Baptist Convention. That 
will result in stronger ties 
between the Datum's largest 
Protestant denomination and 
the Republican Party. In fu- 
ture, any prospective Repub- 
lican presidential candidate 
will need to court the 15- 
miUion-member SBC. 

The right-wing takeover is a 
blow, certainly, to the Demo- 
crats. The Southern Baptists' 
steady movement to the right 
has been a key element in 
Republican election gains in 
the South. The power of tins 
and other denominations in 
Dixie cannot be under- 
estimated. 

They are enhancing the 
incipient black-white electoral 


polarization: while the Mack 
churches 1 continue their aBe- i 
Stance to the Democrats, the 
white-dommated churches are 
moving to the Republicans. 

Although election battles in 
the South mi longer torn on the 
issue of race, their outcomes 
may depend more and more on 
the raefol mix of the voters. 

It begs the question: Can 
blacks and wfahes share 
power, can Democrats avoid 
being the “black" party nod 
Republicans the “white" 
party? Behind that issue lies 
much of the reason for the 
instability that characterizes 
Southern politics. 

The uncertainty Is height- 
ened by the abrupt end of the 
vast exodus of Macks that 
occurred in every decade of the 
century until the 1970s. Today 
more return than leave (in 
1980 alone, the Sooth had a 
net gain of 200,000 blacks), 
and t&ay are all Democrats. 

‘ But there are other arrivals: 
middle-class whites, most of 
them Republicans. 

They are helping to change 
the fore of Southern politics, 
especially in the suburban 
rings -around the big cities: 
Atlanta, Richmond, Charlotte, 
Columbia, New Orleans. Mo- 
bile, Orlando, Memphis. Lit- 
tle Republican strongholds are 
emerging. “The demograph- 
ics," the pollster Mr WQIfom 
Hamilton observed, “aren't in 
favour of Democrats".

Socialists lose 
votes to left 


and the right in 
Greek polls 


From Mario Modiam* AthHB 


The ruling Greek Socialists 
are estimated to have lost at 
least one quarter of their 
voting strength in the cities to 
the opposition conservatives 
and- to the Communist Parly 
in Sunday's local dections. 

The setback, coming barely 
16 months after the same 
electorate of seven million 
people voted in the Govem- 
. ment of Mr Andreas Papan- 
dreou, the Prime Minister, for 
a second term, was described 
by the Opposition as a rebuff, 
or at best a warning for a 

change of course. 

in the country's three largest 
cities, Athens. Salonika and 
Piraeus, candidates for mayor 
backed by the conservative 
New Democracy, the main 
Opposition party. led the polls 
with just under the SO percent 
needed to elect mayors in the 
first round. 

The Socialist mayors lost 
much of their party’s vote to 
the Moscow-line Commun- 
ists, increasing the Gov- 
ernment's dependence' on the 
Communist votes if these 
candidates are to remain in 
office after next Sunday’s 
second round. 

But at what price? The 
Greek Communists have been 
pressing for the introduction 
of die system of simple 
proportional representation in 
the next general elections. It 
would increase their chances 
of power-sharing in coalition 
with the Socialists who, so far, 
insist on going it alone. 

The request was turned 
down yesterday by the Gov- 
ernment, which is taking pains 
to dissociate Sunday's voting 
from any broader political 


issues. MrRapandreou, who is 
aware that his Government's 
tough austerity measures as 
well as its effort to mend 
fences with the United States 
is losing it left-wing votes, 
said: “The results of the local 
election are a victory for local 
government.” 

Mr Constantine MittotaJas, 
the New Democracy leader 
whose position within his 
party is solidified by the 
results, said: “We have the 
three main cities in our pocket 
next Sunday.” He said he 
relied' on left-wing voters, 
disgruntled by the Govern- 
ment's mishandling of the 
economy and its arrogance m 
power, to support conser- 
vative candidates or at least 
abstain, thus easing New 
Democracy’s conquest of the 
main cities. 

Only 82 of a total erf 7 303 
towns and 21 head villages 
managed to elect mayors in 
the first round. In all others 
voters must go to the polls on 
Sunday to elect a mayor from 
the two leading candidates. 
The results of the local elec- 
tions in 3,638 communes are 
still outstanding. 

In Athens. Mr Miltos Evert, 
a former New Democracy 
minister nicknamed “Bull- 
dozer”, led the poll with 44.3 
per cent of the vote against 
29.5 per cent for Mr Dimitris 
Beis, the Socialist Mayor 
whose party won 39 per cent 
of the vote in Athens last year. 

Communist Party candid- 
ates polled 17.6 per cent, 
compared with their 10 per 
cent last year, and the 
Eurocommunists attracted 3.9 
per cent of the vote.

Mr Roger Htheridge. QC and

the defendan ts. 

MR JUSTICE HENRY said 
that Nirex were responsible for 
.finding a site suitable for the 
land disposal of low level radio- 
active waste. KjUinghohne and 
Fulbeck were two of four tries 
selected for investigation. 


Local residents were qgatod 


by the proposals and 

and LAND, unincorporated 
associations, were set up, their 
objects being to prevent the 
dumping of nudear waste at the 


sites in question; tq^ ca mp a^n 


fora national policy for the; — 
storage of nudear waste; and to 
promote and support those aims 

and objectives among all 
communities within the united 
Kingdom threatened by the 
dumping of nudear waste. 

The associations resolved to 


pursue those objects by peace- 


non-violent means. 

In August 1986 Nirex -ap- 
pointed contractors to survey 
the sites. The contracts con- 


tained penalty clauses entitling 


the contractors to damages

subject to the representative

Some of the protestors were 
prepared to engage in tortious, 
albeit peaceful, actions (the 
obstruction of the httiwayh m 
breach of the ptem tins' right to

That was to be contrasted 
with the attitude of membera of 
the utmost respectability -who 
would not contemplate breaking 
the law in any form. 

There was a dear conflict of

tions so that the essential 
requirement fora representative 
action was absent.

Inland Revenue 
sioners v Brackett 
Before Mr Justice Hoffmann 
(Judgment given October 8] 

The anti-avoidance pro- 
visions of section 478 of the 
Income and Corporation Taxes 
Act 1970 relating to transferring 
income to persons abroad 
covered a wide spectrum and 
should not be narrowly con- 
strued. Special commissioners 
in finding that the provisions 
bad no application to a consul- 
tant chartered surveyor who had 
arranged for his fees to be paid 
to a Jersey company who em- 
ployed him had thereby erred in 
law. 

Mir Justice Hoffmann so held 
in the Chancery Division in 
allowing an appeal by the Crown 
from a decision of the commis- 
sioners who had discharged 
a s sess m ents to income tax on 
tiie taxpayer, Mr Frederick John 
Brackett His Lordship 
dismissed an appeal by the 
taxpayer against assessments to 
corporation tax made on him in 
the alternative under section 79 
of the Taxes Management Act 
1970 (profits from branch or 
agency) that had been upheld by 
foe commissioners. 

United Kingdom, retired in 1970 
but co n tinued to work on a 
consultancy basis. In 1974 he 
made ar r a n g ements with the 
“Sectors of a Jersey investment 
company, Drishane. the shares 
of which were held by trustees 
for foe benefit Of the taxpayer's 
femily. Thereby Drishane was 
to act as business consultam and 
to employ the taxpayer to give 
advice to customers. 

. Un tfl >979, when the taxpayer 
became 70. he was to receive no 
and thereafter such 
remuneration as the directors of 
Dnshane thought proper. The 
arrangement wax also that 
Drishane would give help to the 

taxpayer to realise assets held bv 

himso as to enable him to settle 

oebtsand to pay his way until he 

was 70. 

The Revenue were of the 
opinion that foe taxpayer while 
employed by Drishane was 
avoiding payment of income 
tax. They raised assessments on 
him for foe years from 1975 to 
1979 under- section 478 to in- 
come tax on Dri shane's income,

A British artist’s Italian renaissance 


GALLERY 


Edward 

Burne-Jones 

Galleria Nazionale 
d’Arte Moderaa. 
Rom e 

Mary Swanzy

R.O.Dunlop 

Fine Art Associates 


Would you believe that one of 
the biggest exhibitions ever 
devoted to Edward Barne- 
Jones has just opened in 
Rome's Galleria Nazionale 
d'Arte Modema (until 
November 23)? Or, for that 
matter, that the Staatsgalerie, 
Stuttgart, owning among other 
Jhmgs the whole of Burne- 
Jones's extensive cycle of 
Pfcrseus paintings, always has 
a whole room of his paintings 
on show, more by for than one 
can ever see at the Tate? Is this 
just an egregious example of 
the prophet's being without 
honour in his own country, or 
are there deeper, stranger 
reasons? 

Certainly there are particu- 
lar reasons why the Italians 
should be interested. Not only 
was Lhere a lot of important 
Italian influence on Burne- 
Jones. especially through bis 
discovery of Botticelli, and 
what Berenson called his "ex- 
ited angels", but Burne-Jones 
executed one of his most 
important later commissions 
for S. Paolo entro !e mura, the 
American church in Rome, 
and this exhibition includes a 
number of the sketches for the 
mosaics which make such an 
imposing show there. Burne- 
Jones was extensively written 
up in Italian art magazines of 
the period, and exerted a 
considerable influence on Ital- 
ian artists of a slightly later 
generation, such as Sartorio, 
De Carolis and Giuseppe Cel- 
lini, among others of the 
D'Annunzio circle. This 
connection is underlined by 
the show's subtitle, “From 
Pre-Raphaelitism to 
Symbolism". 

The mam reason we do not 
pay too much attention to 
Burne-Jones in this country 
nowadays (despite the major 
Hayward show in 1975) is that 



Large and tittle-known: Edward Burse Jones' The Sirens, from Sarasota, included in die Rome restrospective 


in British art he seems to 
represent something of a dead 
end. In the context of Italian 
art. on the other hand, he can 
be seen as pan of a continuing 
development: one need only 
look around the nearby sec- 
tions of the gallery's perma- 
nent display to observe bow 
the line runs from a sort of 
meticulous realism not so for 
distant from Pre-Raphaelit- 
ism. through the likes of 
Burne-Jones to full-blooded 
Symbolism, and then straight 
on for way of the more crazed 
Italian Symbolists to the 
whole modern era. 

In Britain, of course, we 
arrived at modernism by a 
very different route, leavii 
poor Burne-Jones high 
dry. 

Whatever the reasons for its 
being there, the Roman show 
does make Burne-Jones look 
very impressive. Works have 
been summoned from for and 
wide, and as well as borrowing 
whole series from one source 
(like the four Pygmalion 
paintings from Birmingham), 
the organizers have brought 
together dispersed series like 
that devoted to the Sleeping 
Beauty legend, and dug up 


some of the lesser-known of 
Burne-Jones's large works, 
like The Sirens from Sarasota. 
There is also an incomparable 
range of bis original drawing 
for Kelmscon books, notably 
the Chaucer, which often 
prove — when seen separately 
— to show a more surrealistic 
cast of mind than one would 
normally attribute to this 
particular artist 

Consider, for example, the 
astonishing image for The 
House of Fame in which the 
house itself, like a wickerwork 
space station, floats casually 
past in mid-air, watched with- 
out surprise by a man and a 
gigantic eagle. It is good to see 
that the British Council is 
encouraging these unexpected 
signs of interest abroad in 
British arL Some comparable 
efforts nearer home would be 
very welcome. 

In Britain it seems left these 
days primarily to the enter- 
prise of commercial galleries 
to rediscover the forgotten or 
promote the. undervalued. 
Take the retrospective de- 
voted to Mary Swanzy (1882- 
1978). by Pyms Gallery, 
Belgravia, until October 25. 
Quite likely, even if you are 


Irish, you have never beard of 
her, even though she lived to 
nearfy a hundred and painted 
most of that time. But what 
the show reveals is by no 
means a sweet-little-Qld-lady 
kind of artist, or even a 
markedly provincial one. 

She began in the 1 900s with 
dark-toned and respectable 
portraits, but very rapidly 
discovered the glowing Fauve 
colours which enable her (a 
little shakily) to be numbered 
among the "Irish 
Impressionists'*. She studied 
in Paris, and travelled exten- 
sively from her Dublin base, 
assuming — probably early in 
the Twenties {though dating is 
difficult) — a sort of lyrical 
Cubism owing more, by the 
look of it. to Delaunay’s 
happy, circling colours than to 
the grim analytical variety. 

By the end of the Thirties, 
with the war-clouds darkening 
over Europe. Swanzy moved 
on to a darker, stranger Sym- 
bolist style, as in her power- 
fully composed Day of 
Judgmera, probably from 
about 1940. And having re- 
turned by this roundabout 
way to direct representation, 
she stuck with it to the end. 


The RXXDmilop (1894- 
1 973) retrospective ai Fine An 
.Associates. 229 Westboume 
Grove, until Friday, shows 
him to have been that rare 
bird on the tree of British an. a 
born Expressionist. He was an 
RA. famous drinker and 
rooted opponent of Munnings 
in his days as President: he 
also painted vast numbers of 
portraits and landscapes, very 
fast and sometimes not very 
self-critically. 

But be had his own way of 
looking at things, his own 
distinctive colour-range 
(heavy on the beiges, siennas 
and umbers; little time for 
blues and greens; the odd 
heavy black outline to pull 
things dramatically together), 
and his own style of heavy 
impasto, often applied directly 
with the palette-knife. In por- 
traits he also bad some un- 
expected insights: as Mervyn 
Levy nicely observes in the 
catalogue, be was one of the 
few to realize that Edith 
Sitwell was not, as she ap- 
peared. the Red Queen, but 
deep down was still Alice.

A performance to 
out-thrill baseball 


Salome/Madama 

Butterfly 

Music Center, 

Los Angeles 

"In the final analysis, 
however." The Los Angeles 
Herald remarked over the 
weekend, "opera is a poor 
substitute for baseball." This 
is an arguable proposition and 
one which suggests — leaving 
aside the thought that there 
might possibly be room for 
both in the same town — that 
the Music Center Opera still 
has a little missionary’ work to 
do after its inaugural week. Or 
it could be that the Herald had 
not yet got round to seeing 
Salome. 

When it comes to sexiness 
opera certainly has the edge in 
Sir Peter Hall's new produc- 
tion. which marks his first 
excursion into Richard 
Strauss. It is Hall at his best, a 
triumph for which few 
qualifications need be made. 

If Wilde went to Paris and 
the French language for his 
Salome, then Hall has stepped 
straight lo fin desiix'/e Vienna 
to stage Richard Strauss's 
opera, in a brief programme 
note Hall suggiests that Salome 
heralds the world of Berg and 
Schoenberg, which indeed n 
does. John Bury's set quite 
deliberately quotes from 
Klimt, both in the crooked 
speckled doorway through 
which the Tctrarch and his 
court make ihcir entrance and 

in the series of dappled projec- 
tions. spookilv lit. which form 
the ever-changing Judean sky. 
The atmosphere created is 

that of a decadent fairy' **“ e- 
ceric and erotic. 

Scxualii\ . depraved lust and 
virtual nudity arc the corner- 
stones of Hall's conception. 


OPERA 





lofcMiaws/ 


After Narraboth (another 
highly promising performance 
from the young tenor Jona- 
than Mack) has finished pant- 
ing after Salome — and indeed 
expired from it — that daugh- 
ter of Herodias is obssessed 
with the flesh of Jokanaan. He 
rises from his cistern prison, 
naked apart from what can 
only be described as a 
J oka naan-strap, with every 
inch of white flesh gleaming. 

“Kuhl wie Elfenbein” (Chill 
as ivory) is how Salome 
describes him and that is how 
Michael Devlin Mays him. 
Contrary to general practice 
the bass-baritone sounds bet- 
ter out on stage than down 
below, where there are some 
amplification problems still to 
be worked out- But it is the 
phvsicaliiy of the presence, 
with raven hair “like dusters 
ofblack grapes" and the blood 
red mouth that count. It is 
almost allowable that Salome 
should roll down the astern 
steps in ecstacy as Jokanaan 
leaves, but at this single point 
Hall perhaps plays a card too 
soon. 

Herod himself - Ragnar 
Ulfiuig still in remarkably 
penetrating voice and with 
German diction which the 
whole of the rest of the cast 
could study with profit — is a 
roly-poly lecher playing Hum- 
bert Humbert to Salome’s 
Lolita. Only Herodias. indif- 
ferently sung and turned by 
M3rvelee Carriaga into a 
Hcrmione Gingold figure, lets 
down this hand-picked cast 

And so to Salome herself, 
played by Maria Ewing, aka 
Lady Hall. In dramatic terms, 
from childish inquisitiveness 
and greed through adolescent 
enticement to the final per- 
verted sexual apotheosis, this 
interpretation has rarely been 
equalled. Ewing's Salome en- 
ters a ballet dancer- a wraith 
from la Sylpfudc - she ends 
as a dramatic soprano slobber- 
ing over a bloody head before 
being turned into a meat 
sandwich between the shields 
of Herod’s guards. 

Vocally Maria Ewing is at 
her best in that opening 
encounter with Jokanaan, her 
voice, with a new girlish 
timbre, easily filling the vast 
Music Center. On the first 
night she gave a bit too much 
jn the Dance of the Seven 
Veils, ending up like Jokanaan 
almost naked with a spangled 
G-sirineand pelvis palpitating 
- all of which left her a bit 
short of stamina for pan of the 


closing scene. But better pac- 
ing will overcome this in 
future. An altogether remark- 
able intrepretation. 

Henry Lewis proved by for 
the most effective of the three 
condutors on view in this 
opening week, drawing for 
more aggressive and sensuous 
playing from the Music 
Center's opera orchestra than 
his colleagues had earlier 
achieved. 

Inserted between this hyp- 
notic Salome and the Otel/o 
described last week came ’a 
Butterfly using venerable sets 
from the Washington Opera. 
This was a routine evening, 
made to look all the more so 
by what stood either side. 
Chief interest centred on 
Leona Mitchell in the title 
role. Striking both in 
figureand in volume. Miss 
Mitchell made no pretense at 
geisha fragility and placed 
Butterfly right in the spinio 
repertory, turning “Un bd dT 
and the Death Scene into 
moments of , high musical, 
drama. She certainly did not 
achieve much rapport with 
her conductor. Sir Alexander 
Gibson.' who bad a bland first 
act though a rather better 
second one. 

The opera was played in a 
strange mishmash of editions, 
using the two-acl version but 
in lending Pinkerton's “Addio 
fiorito asir, which Puccini 
wrote in for Butterfly’s re- 
launch. Neil Wilson, one of 
America's new wave of tenors, 
handled this decently enough, 
but he was vocally over-parted 
by the side of Leona Mitchell 
and could not decide whether 

Alda 

London Coliseum 

John Copley's English Na- 
tional Opera production of 
Aida has had a troubled career 
— to put it mildly — since its 
1979 debuL which was chiefly 
notable for some gratuitously 
nasty choreography, swiftly 
censored by a nervous 
management But this latest 
revival staged by Michael 
Hunt sets new standards of 
sloppiness and insipidity. 

The chorus ambled on like 
torpid sheep and sang with 
equal zest Rapport in the 
ensembles between the stage 
and a lacklustre orchestra was 
not good, despite the energetic 
endeavours of the Dutch 
conductor Kees Bakels (who 
picked the wrong night to 
make his ENO debut). 

Worst of all. the creaking 



Humbert Humbert and Lolita: Wapmr Utiung and Maria Ewing in Salome 


to make Pinkerton an ex- West 
Point cadet or an aspirant 
member of the Brat Pack. 

Peter Glossop, bis baritone 
sounding somewhat grainy, 
was a stodgy Sharpless. The 
staging was slackly done by 
Peter Ebert both in detail — 
Sharptess and Pinkerton 
sloshed out Cutty Sark by the 

neat tumblerful, a brand that 
was not even a gleam in 

blocks of Stefanos Lazaridis’s 
monster sets seemed unwilling 
to slide into foe positions their 
creator desired; hence a run- 
ning time 30 minutes longer 
than normal. Even if foe 
principals did manage to work 
up a little genuine Verdian 
heat, foe long delays effec- 
tively scuppered the drama. 

Lade of adequate rehearsal 
time was evident throughout; 
this looked too obviously like 
a shoestring revival to plug a 
gap. The public for Aida — 
which is. after all, the grass- 
roots opera-loving public — 
deserves better than a histori- 
cal costume parade, and so do 
the. young principals who 
worked hard to achieve cred- 
• ible performances in this 
atmosphere. 

The production's final 
emphasis on Amneris. as the 
real tragic protagonist, was 
justified by Linda Finnie's 

. \ . 


anyone’s eye at the turn of the 
century- — and in its broader 
strokes. 

The moral of the first week 
of Peter Hemmings’ new com- 
pany is quite dean the home- 
grown productions are much 
superior to the brought-in — or 
bought-in — ones. In the 
future there is much to look 
forward to. Placido Domingo 
bears the title of Artistic 

whole-hearted portrayal, es- 
pecially in Act IV where she 
produced some gutsy chest 
tone to match her vibrant top 
register. 

Janice Cairns, singing the 
title role for the first time, 
suffered moments of suspect 
intonation and sacrificed clear 
diction too often on the altar 
of legato tone. But her voice 
has the requisite power, and 
her acting was impassioned. 

Eduardo Aivares's service- 
able Radam£$ remains a little 
wooden in gesture and lacking 
in vocal tenderness in amo- 
rous situations, but John 
Connell’s - Ramfis grew in 
authority and vocal menace 
throughout the evening, and 
Patrick Wheatley was not 
afraid to cultivate an angry 
growl to convey Amonasro's 
wounded pride

BBC Symphony/ 
Pritchard 
Festival Hall/ 

Radio 3 ' . 

This was the most bifurcated 
programme yet in the 
BrinenfTippett Festival for 
whatever the iconoclastic vig- 
our of Britten's music in his 
20s. it has to yield in terms of 
youthful boldness to what 
Tippett was writing in his late 
sixties. But the difference is no 
doubt as much one of period 
as personality. At foe very 
banning of the 1 970s it still 
seemed possible to make 
things anew, and Tippett's 
Third Symphony celebrates a 
grand optimism that would 
have been unthinkable for 
Britten in 1936 and 1940. It 
certainly sounds a little 
strange now, too. which may 
be why the Britten works 
gained the superior 
performances. 

Sir John Pritchard began 
the concert by making an 
excellent case for seeing the 
Sinfonia da Requiem as more 
a Siberian than a Mahlerian 
work. The first movement, 
practically monothematic. 
came forward with a tidal 
inevitability, and there was 
something of the same quality 
in the similarly single-minded 
“Dies irae" scherzo, though 
the brilliant textures here were 
muffled by the problems the 
orchestra experienced in turn- 
ing corners at speed. 

Tlic same problems re- 
curred in the big fast songs of 
Our Hunting Fathers, and it 
was a mistake to place such 
near and similar works in 
Britten's output together the 
romp of the “Rats” number, 
in particular, was a little 
spoiled by one's having heard 
almost the same gestures in 
that instrumental “Dies irae". 
But at least Jill Gomez was on 
hand — replacing an ill An- 
thony Rolfe Johnson - to 
illuminate Britten's line and 
even to shed some light on 
Auden's words. 

The work was of course 
intended for a soprano, and 
Miss Gomez showed how well 
adapted it is to her voice, 
though it will take a few more 
performances to dim the 
memories one has of Pears as 
suffragan bishop to the animal 
kiqgdom. 

Another soprano. Faye 
Robinson, supplied the clos- 
ing blessings on the Tippett 
symphony, and did so 
marvellously: as a laureate of 
The Mask of Time, she knows 
how to marry a madrigal ian 
bound with the soulftilness of 
the blues. It was, again, foe 
orchestral detail that was 
blurred and perhaps, loo. the 
message, for Tippett's sense of 
“a huge compassionate 
power" has hardly gained in 
plausibility since the heady 
days of 1971 • 

Paul Griffiths 

LPO/Davis 
Festival Hail 


This was. frankly, a bit of a 
disgrace. Of course orchestras 
have the duty to lure new 
audiences, and there is noth- 
ing wrong with presenting a 
series of popular programmes 
in order to do so. But to fob an 
unsuspecting audience off 
with the kind of shoddy 
music-making served up in 
this “Classics for Pleasure’' 
concert given by foe London 
Ph Harmonic Orchestra under 
their Associate Conductor 
Carl Davies is hardly feir 
practice. 

Davies seemed to find diffi- 
culty in coping with the 
fundamentals of conducting — 
beating a steady time, ensur- 
ing confident entries, simply 
controlling the orchestra — or 
perhaps it was that he had not 
rehearsed Brahms' “St 
Anthony" variations at all. 
Every member of the LPO 
probably know this work well 
enough to play it backwards. 
Nobody actually did this. but. 
with the faster variations 
sounding so appallingly messy 
and the slower ones spoilt fo 
poor wind tuning and gro- 
tesque balance, it would 
scarcely have been worse if 
someone had. Beethoven's 
Eighth Symphony was tech- 
nically slightly belter but 
musically moribund. 

To be fair, it must have been 
difficult to get down to the 
serious stuff after the double 
bass virtuoso Gary Karr's 
cabaret spot. But Karr's patter 
evidently charmed most of the 
audience and he achieved 
some fairly flashy if 
inconsequential things. 

SP 


CONCERT 


LSO/Hickox 
Barbican 

It was plain from this perfor- 
mance that Brahms’ Requiem 
holds a special place in foe 
affections of Richard Hickox- 
He conducted foe piece like a 
man possessed — and though 
outwardly there were the usual 
extravagant theatrical ges- 
tures. here they had an un- 
usually inspiring effect on foe 
voices and players of foe 
London Symphony Orchestra 
and Chorus. 

The choir in particular 
showed a considerable 
strength, although there were 
one or two rather obvious frail 
moments, usually when the 
tenors had to sing something 
high and exposed at a dynamic 
less than fortissimo. But the 

grim incisiveness of "Denn 
alles Fleisch", foe sweetness of 
“Wie lieblich sind deine 
Wohnungen", foe thrill of foe 
exultant fugue at foe end of 
“Denn wir ha ben hier keine 
bleibende Stau" were here 
executed with exemplary 
commitment and. where 
needed, devastating power. It 
was a magnificent charting of 
the work's progress from de- 
spair to the ultimate glory. 

The soloists, too. took their < 
parts well. Heather Harper's 
“Ihr habi nun Traurigkeit" 
was cleverly understated, an 
approach which perfectly 
suited its emotions, particu- 
larly given the gloriously shin- 
ing colours of this voice. 

The baritone, Stephen Rob- 
erts. keenly seized his own 
dramatic opportunities: his is 
a voice which seems perfectly 
scaled for this work, not big 
enough to assume over-domi- 
nance yet still aufooritiiavely 
expressive. In “Herre. lehre 
doch" he achieved a chilling 
sense of terror at the words 
“Ich hoffe auf dich". while at 
the final turning point of foe 
piece, in the penultimate 
movement when foe baritone 
unfolds St Paul's mystery of 
the Last Day. he was able in an 
instant to transform the 
mood, providing the perfect 
springboard for the great dou- 
ble fugue that follows. 

The work found foe LSO in 
excellent form too. and for 
once the hail worked to an 
extent in their favour, stress- 
ing the abundant woodwind 
and brass detail. There is 
plenty of that in Strauss's Four 
Last Songs, which Miss 
Harper sang with some 
marvellously subtle touches, 
though once or twice foe 
orchestra failed to respond, 
seemingly unwilling to play at 
foe genuine pianissimo. 

Still, it was an unusually 
moving performance even for 
this work, and it was graced, 
moreover, by lovely violin 
and horn solos. 

Stephen Pettitt 

Hermann Prey 
Wigmore Hall 

The second of Hermann 
Prey’s Schubert so.ng recitals 
was devoted to settings of 
Goethe, in whose often vital, 
if lyrical, evocations of on- 
ward movement this com- 
poser reaped many a dramatic 
musical harvest. Prey’s bari- 
tone, it has to be said, is not 
quite what it used to be. 
though once in full flight the 
voice still sounds glorious, 
secure and rich in lone. Schu- 
bert demands so many subtle 
expressive gradations foal any 
flaw in the voice is bound to 
be mercilessly exposed and at 
low dynamic levels Prey lost a 
degree of control over intona- 
tion and timbre. 

Vet he still has his innate 
musical understanding of 
these songs, and in Leonard 
Hokanson he has also foe 
benefit of a most sensitive but 
far from reticent accompanist. 

If a work as delicately ex- 
pressed as “Sehnsucht" called 
for more fine colouring and 
greater intensity than Prey was 
able to summon, foe “chase" 
songs like “Rastiose Liebe" or 
“Ertkonig" were unequivo- 
cally successful, full of terror 
and sorrow. “Meeres Stifle" a 
song sinister in a different, 
markedly less frantic manner, 
was equally chilling 

In “An die Entfemte". 
Prey’s tendency towards 
pitching flat was accompanied 
by what seemed at first to be a 
lack of momentum. But the 
performance developed into 
one of exquisite poise, a 
perfect balance to foe de- 
licious “Geheimes" which 
came before it.

in the snow. But the 


City revolution, says 

Bryan Appleyard, 


won’t do away with 
fear and greed, the 


Cri min ating emotions 


Part 2: Life in the fast lane 


F ear and greed is what 
stimulates financial mar- 
kets, according to Stani- 
slav Yassukovitch. head 
of European operations for Ameri- 
can broker Merrill Lynch. “Fear 
that you may lose your capital and 
greed if you think somebody is 
making more.” 

In Lbe old days, fear and greed 
were as prevalent as they are today 
but they had to be combined with 
patience. News travelled relatively 
slowly, giving people time to mull 
things over. But information was 
always the key - a prophylactic 
against fear and a balm for greed. 
So the technologists have been 
under pressure to produce more 
rapid data transmission systems. 

Over the past 10 years, they 
have delivered. Thanks to 
computers, every ripple and every 
murmur in every market is flashed 
virtually instantaneously to any- 
body who wants to know. And 
these are not just official state- 
ments or real events— rumours fly 
just as fast, so the yen or the dollar 

can rise or fell on the back of 
massive movements of funds 
because of whispers about a third 
world war or an oil price rise. 

As a result, decisions once made 
m weeks, then days, then hours, 
now take seconds. Yassukovitch 
points out that £4 billion worth of 
UK Government bonds can now 
be placed with buyers in hours, 
obviating the laborious task of 
sending telexes to every potential 
customer. 

So. with fear and greed being fed 
by new information every second 
of the day. nobody wants to stand 


still. Certainly, nobody wants to 
ith 


get stuck with investments they 
can’t sell at a moment’s notice. 
This is what is meant by 
“liquidity” and, in part, it explains 
where all this money is coming 
from. For technology has made 


people realize the immense im- 
portance of being as _ liquid as 
possible. If you are shifting mil- 
lions, a 0.125 per cent shift m 
interest rates or a shudder in the 
currency markets can cost or make 
you a fortune, so long-term buying 
is a thing of the past. 

This in turn has led to the vast 
global explosion of the financial 
services industry. For every time 
money moves, someone takes a 
cut and that cut, minuscule in 
percentage terms, becomes bigger 
and bigger the more the market is 
“churned” by wars, rumours of 
wars and fest-talking Wall Street 
brokers. These pin-striped dandies 
in their half-mdon glasses have 
invented a 'range of financial 
“instruments" of ever-increasing 
sophistication. You can now make 
money do just about everything 
from leaping national boundaries 
in fractions of a second to string 
up and begging. 

In feet, behind all the political 
and structural changes that 
brought about the Big Bang, ilwas 
technology that was the real 
driving force. For. just as h makes 
no sense to take a taxi to 
somebody’s office to sell them a 
Eurobond when you can do it by 
computer, so nobody now needs a 
little man to run out on to the 
Stock Exchange floor to fence with 
the jobbers. 

For the small investors, technol- 
ogy should mean substantially 
easier financial dealings. It is now 
possible to program a computer to 
seek out the best deals on any 
transaction. In feet, during one 
New York snowstorm when 
commuters foiled to make fyjnto 
work, the computers continued 
operating the financial system, 
unprompted. This should mean 
you can simply walk into your 
bank and buy or sell shares via a 
computer terminal-.

THE BIG BOYS OF INVESTMENT 


Six big UK Investment groups 
have emerged from the takeovers 
of the last two years: 

NatWest Investment Bank 
(NWIB): took in brokers Fielding 
Newson-Smith and jobbers 
Bisgood Bishop and merged 
them with NatWest' s 
merchant bankers, County Bank. 
County had a reputation as a 
fast-moving upstart in the 
merchant banking world. It Is 
County's buoyant glossy and 
"thanes Vmiers and 
Cohen who have been 
brought in to do the same at 

Barclays do Zoete Wedd: 
Barclays Merchant Bank plus 
brokers de Zoete & Bevan 
and Jobbers Wedd Durfacher.

John Butcher will 


receive a rare award 


today for his work in 


promoting art and 


design in industry 


People are calling John 
Butcher the Minister for De- 
sign — though course there is 
no such thing and design 
occupies only a small part of 
Butcher's brief as Par- 
liamentary Under Secretary 
for Trade and Industry. 

Today he will receive an 
additional seal of approval 
when the Royal Society of 
Arts announces that it has 
awarded him its Bicentary 
Medal for exerting “an excep- 
tional influence in promoting 
art and design in British 
industry”. It's the first time 
the Society has given its 
annual medal, instituted in 
1954. to a minister. 

The accolade is not al- 
together unexpected for 
Butcher, the father of three 
children, a passionate sup- 
porter of Birmingham City

son of a coal miner.

fridge or dipper, is one that 
works: it meets the wants, 
needs, tastes and priorities of 
those who use it) 

The moment when design 
ceased to be irrelevant pre- 
dates John Butcher’s arrival at. 
fie DTI, but it is largely due to 
his particular tenacity and 
abilities, bis colleagues say, 
that the subject is riding high. ' 

In January 1982 Mrs 
Thatcher- summoned de- 
signers. academics and indus- 
trialists to Downing Street and 
asked bow the Government 
could promote design. By the 
time Butcher took over 
responsibility for it three 
months later, the subject was a 
winner.. He was shrewd 
enough to see lhat in being 
given Mrs Thatcher’s special 
interest to champion, be was 
“the luckiest man in the 
iverament”, as he told 
tends. , , 

The nearest Butcher had 
previously got to design was 
his marriage to an art teacher, 
although he says with • a 
characteristic mixture of 
eagerness and slight sdF 
mockery that he has “worked 
very hard am! really learnt." 
He went to Birmingham 


For some years 

included m Who's Who, but 
he now confesses to a liking 
for music and satire. 

Under his auspices the De- 
sign Advisory Service Funded 
Consultancy Scheme was set 
up to loan designers to small 
and medium-sized manufac- 
turers. More than 2,500 have 
so far used it. 

A Strategy Group has been 
formed and is advising the 
Government on priority ar- 
eas. Alongside government 
support is a wave of enthu- 
siasm within education, with 
seven examination boards 
offering design-related A-lev- 
els. A new course ha de sign 
manag ement put on by three 
polytechnics is so popular that 
three more have started.

puter business gave him an 
edge in the wider field of 
industry and he set off around 
the country, speaking to

and engineers about how rich 
Britain was in designers, and 
how abysm afly their talents 
were being squandered.

RENAISSANCE 


LONDON PEOPLE 




Naked 

nape 



Gasps of surprise greeted the 
Princess of Wales and her 
bare nape at the British 
Fashion Banquet last Friday. 
Designers, who included 
award-winning Jasper 
Conran, in strangulating wing 
collar, and Zandra Rhodes, in 
yellow bead embroidery 
against her shocking pink 
hair, admired Diana's Bruce 
Oldfield off-the-shoulder 
gown. Bruce teds me that he 
originally designed the 
Renaissance-inspired gown 
with a mink trim, to persuade 
clients that there is fashion 
life after the Dynasty shoulder 
pads. Our fashion-conscious 
princess has been quick to 
follow the trend away from 
padded shoulders. But any 
idea that she is blazing a royal 
trail was dispelled when Di- 
ana sat down to dinner in the 
Fishmongers' Hall, beneath a 
portrait of the young Queen 
Victoria who appeared to be 
wearing the identical style - 
give or take a Garter ribbon 
and without Diana's matching 
velvet pumps and favourite 
clutch bag.

T he frankly feminine 
has had a bad fash- 
ion press in the femi- 
nist era. Bui the new 
British collections 
inspire once-despised adjec- 
tives: pretty, dainty, delicate, 
graceful and soft. 

Short skirts are skating cir- 
cles. gently gathered or puff- 
balls of luile: longer ones faff 
in swiris or pleats. Shorts are 
wide and waisted and trousers 
arc soft pyjamas. Favoured 
colours are powder pink and 
blue, and embroidery is the 
latest decoration. 

The renaissance of feminin- 
ity means that the female 
breasts, shrouded for so long 


under over-sized dothes, are 
back in fashion. They are now 
veiled only in whispy chiffon 
or caressed in silk. 

This gentle mood is more 
than a search for fashion 
novelty. It expresses an inter- 
national fashion feeling that 
women have come to the end 
of presenting themselves as 
surrogate men with unnatu- 
rally broadened shoulders or 
as brazen sex objects in figure- 
hugging clothes. 

The most interesting collec- 
tion in London was by John 
Galliano, who drew his in- 
spiration from the medieval 
era. when women were the 
objects of courtly love. 


Galliano's show, in tune with 
Romeo Gigli in Milan, opened 
with a young innocent noth 
tendrils of hair trailing over a 
transparent black and white 
chiffon blouse above a high- 
' waisted long skirt It suggested 
both a new fashion focus on 
the raised waist and the new. 
mood. 

Galliano draws from other 
eras and cultures, including 
the Edwardian sailor collar. 
He used exquisite colours 
from ancient Greece: aegean 
blue, sunbaked terracotta, ol- 
ive green and marble white. 
John Galliano's strongest 
suit is his cutting, which was 
refined this season to produce

simple T-shirt dresses with a 
square medieval neckline and 
wrap skirts. 

The 1950s, that other era of 
die frankly feminine, was the 
inspiration for both Jasper 
Conran and Alistair Blair. 
Conran's show was the more 
punchy, because he has the wit 
to poke fun at his own fashion 
message. His two strong looks 
were the short skirt, under a 
cropped, tailored jacket and 
the full mid-calf skirt below a 
halter top. The short skirts 
looked most convincing at 
night in ruffles of satin and 
chiffon and in bell-shaped 
ottoman silk. 

Do modem women want to 
look like ladies again? That is 
the question posed by 
Alaistair Blair’s totally pro- 
fessional collection — let down 
by a lighting failure and the 
fact that his heavyweight over- 
seas buyers deserted him for 
dinner with the Princess of 
Wales before he produced his 
piece de resistance: Britannia 
decked out in whisps of snow- 
white mile and carrying a 
trident and shield fashioned 
out of chrysanthemums. 

S he was an odd image 
to choose, for Scots- 
bora Alistair Blair, 
trained in Paris with 
Karl Lagerfeld, should 
know that English women, 
their husbands and their 
horses, are frightened of bright 
orange with hot pink, tomato 
red. black and grass green, 
used in graphic bands of 
colour. But they will like his 
gentle New Look dresses, with 
their swingy skirts set on a hip 
basque below a confirmed 
waistline.. 

Katharine Hamnett in- 
jected life into the London 
scene with a sexually provoc- 
ative collection of her sig- 
nature denims (now in powder 
pink) and a neo 1960s theme. 
Her naughty schoolgirls in 
brief navy gy m knickers, her 
pedal pusher pants with 
cropped tops and empire line 
white piqu£ dresses, were 
post-war fashions interpreted 
for the posi-Pill era. 

Jean Muir produced some 
eccentric colours in her main 
collection. The discrete Miss 1 


Muir, who favours navy blue, 
introduced a violent shade of 
lime, used with purple, a 
shrieking pimento red and a 
purple, yellow and tomato red 
plaid. There were plenty of 
other clothes to choose from 
in a long show that included a 
peerless ran®: of ribbed cash- 
mere sweaters made with boat 
necks and belted over kicky 
mid-calf skirts. 

I n subtle dusty pinks, pale 
blues and daffodil yel- 
low. and with interesting 
jewellery and accessories, 
the most inventive day 
dresses in town came from the 
Jean Muir Studio collection, 
to which Muir's apprentice 
designers make an important 
contribution. 

Betty Jackson and Wendy 
Dagworthy, both part of 
London's new wave, were 
playing safe this season, al- - 
though Jackson had a good 
short, swingy dirndl skirt that 
we saw in all too many fabrics, 
longer swirling skirts, sweet 
romper suit shorts and Span- 
ish toledo embroideries. 
These have all emerged as 
London fashion themes. 
Dagworthy’s models smiled a 
lou in spite of their gypsy 
head-scarves which gave a 
messy look to some crisp 
clothes including soft pyjama 
suits in coal black piped with 
white and mid-calf knife- 
pleated skirts, graceful in 
white with a scalloped hem 
and tray doth threadwork. 

This has been a low-key 
season for prims, one of the 
British creative strengths that 
was shown at its best in 
English Eccentric's stunning 
Medusa print and strong 
Klimt-inspired knits. The sis- 
ter design team of Helen and 
J udy Littman have an intellec- 
tual approach to fashion, 
researching Freud, the Vienna 
Secessionists and Venice to 
produce a. sometimes over- 
elaborate but very interesting 
collection of tiered and lay- 
ered skirts. John Rocha's var- 
ied and cleverly cut jackets, in 
two few interesting fabrics, 
would have looked stronger 
on the stands at Olympia than 
on the catwalk.

glamorous image, but in- 
troduced puffballs of tulle and 
bubbles of chiffon, to create 
1930s English ladies. 

The rest of tire collections 
were feminine, predictable 
and sometimes very pretty. 
Roland Klein had pleasing 
proportions for his long and 
Ian go ro us pleated skirts worn 
with elongated vests and he 
used Spanish embroidery sub- 
tly on safari dresses. 

Murray Arbeid excels at 
serious embroidery, superb in 
silver on midnight blue chif- 
fon. again with puffball or 
longer tulle skirts. Caroline 
Charles had the best con- 
ventional silk prims in town 
for her vivid silk afternoon 
dresses and debutante delight 
pastel satins at night. Yuki is 
master of the feminine drape 
and the elegant pleau and this 
season used lovely colours 
from coral through to oyster. 
Zandra Rhodes followed an 
Egyptian theme. 

The renaissance of London 
as a fashion capital depends 
on its young designers, who 
cleaned' up their act this 
season and produced sharp 
professional shows, but lost a 
little of their ebullience on the 
wav.

of Devon and Cornwall. John 
Alderson. and the West Midlands 
police chief. Geoffrey Dear, at 
loggerheads on the issue that the 
police are losing public con- 
fidence. Thai, at least, was what 
Alderson thought. When a letter of

McCullough, it said the motion 
would be that the police do not 
"'deserve" public confidence. 
Alderson hastily withdrew, insist- 
ing the wording was "too blunt 
and too strong". McCullough, 
however, can still call on the 
alliance of Ludovic Kennedy and

Washington 

The Reykjavik summit began to 
go wrong at the end of the final 
scheduled session on Sunday 
morning. Until then President 
Reagan was confident that he had 
achieved a major arms control 
deal. But he forgot that the 
Russians are chess players who 
plot a strategy long ahead and save 
their derisive moves for the end. 

With his sudden insistence on 
limiting strategic defence, Mikhail 
Gorbachov caught President 
Reagan in a corner take it or leave 
it. he would lose either way. If 
Reagan rejected the package, "Star 
Wars" would be seen by much of 
the world as the stumbling block 
to agreement on intermediate 
range weapons, strategic arms 
reductions, nuclear testing, hu- 
man rights and regional conflicts. 
If he accepted the limitations, his 
visionary defence shield was 
imprisoned forever in a laboratory 
— and his vaunted insistence that 
SDI was not a bargaining chip 
would be shown to be hollow. 

Almost against their will, the 
Americans were drawn into the 
dilemma by the initial Soviet 
willingness to make rapid progress 
on the whole range of issues. In the 
all-night session on Saturday, the 
arms group settled more than the 
negotiators at Geneva had in years 
of deadlocked talks: a freeze on 
short-range intermediate weap- 
ons, the scrapping of all long-range 
intermediate weapons in Europe, 
and much more. 

It was in the strategic arms 
reduction talks (Start) that Star 
Wars first surfaced on Saturday. 
The Russians had made their 
objections to SDI clear from the 
outset, but it was Marshal Sergei 
Akhromeyev, Chief of the General 
Staff and head of the Soviet team 
of arms, experts, who began to 
make the link. 

Moscow would not go ahead on 
the Start understanding unless the 
US agreed not to withdraw from

development and testing to be 
limited to the laboratory. This. 
Reagan thought, would effectively 
kill the programme. He was not 
prepa r ed to accept it. But the 
Russians insisted: "The whole 
package or nothing at all”. 


US mistake, it is dear ha hind- 
sight, was not recognizing that it 
was the Russians who were mak- 
ing virtually all the concessions in 
the other fields.

appointed, is unlikely to be hurt at

years. By Sunday. Gorbachov had 
made this condition explicit. 

Reagan and his advisers re- 
defined their proposal, and agreed 
to five-year compliance if the 
Russians reduced their missiles at 
the agreed rate, followed by a 
further five years, so that by 1996 
both sides would have eliminated 
all ballistic missiles. 


The Americans felt trapped. As 
George Shultz, the Secretary of 
State, said, it was the "vigorous 
presence" of SDI that had made 
the negotiations possible in the 
first place. If it was removed, what 
guarantee was there that the rest of 
the package would be im- 
plemented?

Russians no satisfaction on their

“It is useless to speak about the 
past." So says Yitzhak Shamir to 
fend off questions about his 
undercover past and about his 
largely silent relationship with 
Shimon Peres over the past 25 
months. 

He is 71 next month, but those 
close to him say he has been 
gening livelier and perkier by the 
hour as the time has approached 
for him to take over as prime 
minister from Peres, leader of the 
Labour dement in the present 
coalition. After the Knesset for- 
mally appoints him. no one will be 
surprised if he nms up to the 
rostrum to make his policy speech. 

It will, he told me last week, be a 
very different speech from the one 
Peres gave in summing up the 
achievements of his time as prime 
minister. “What Mr Peres said 
about the past is not interesting 
now," he said. “I don’t agree with 
what he said, but that is sot 
important. What is important now 
is the future." 

Shamir is the leader ofthe Herat 
faction, whose ultra-Zionist poli- 
cies are strongly at odds with 
Peres's ideas about dealing with 
the Arabs. He says he spent much 
of the past 25 months “gritting my 
teeth” at some of the decisions he 
had to accept under Peres. Now be 
has his chance to plot the future. 
The fixed smile he wore for 
photographers is a real one now 
and he has already written off 
Peres as yesterday's man, even 
though he continues in the govern- 
ment as vice-premier. 

Back in 1 946 it was Shamir who 
was known as “Yesreraitsky" to 
British intelligence when he was 
arrested, disguised as a rabbi, as a 
leader of the notorious Stern 
Gang. His real name was Itzhak 
Yczemitsky. and he was described 
in “wanted" posters as very short, 
heavily built, sallow-skinned, 
brown-haired and brown-eyed 
with thick eyebrows, large ears 
and an unkempt appearance. 

A Polish law student, he bad 
migrated to the Holy Land in 1935 
and. at the end of the war. became 
a leader of the gang that special-

conference. “We appreciate very 
much the involvement of the 
United States, which has the 
advantage of dose relations with 
Israel and with many Arab coun- 
tries. but an international con- 
ference is a Soviet invention, a 
vehicle to enter the political and 
diplomatic process of the Middle 
East. 


ized in daring and ruthless attacks 
aimed at forcing the British out of 
Palestine. The Foreign Office 
described him as “among the most 
fanatical terrorist leaders ... it is 
considered that imprisonment or 
detention is the only satisfactory 
means of preventing them from 
planning and carrying out further 
outrages". 

Since those days Shamir has 
justified the gang's assassinations, 
which shocked and appalled a 
Britain that had just wagsd a six- 
year war against Nazi Germany. 
“There are those who say that to 
attack an army camp is guerrilla 
warfare, but to kill one man is 
terrorism. I don't agree. Our 
method was morally better. A 
soldier is not personally involved. 
He just obeys orders. Ail the men 
we hit were personally interested 
in succeeding against us.” 

Shamir's official government 
biography says he “kept out ofthe 
public limelight" after Israel be- 
came a state: “From 1955 to 1965 
he served in a senior civil service 
post. From 1965 to 1970 he 
managed various business con- 
cerns.” In fact for a decade he was 
an important and successful agent 
with Mossad. Israel's secret ser- 
vice. His quick brain, his more or 
less fluent command of six lan- 
guages and his singleness of 
purpose made him invaluable, 
and he was glad to be out of the 
public eye. 

During this time he changed his 


name to “Shamir", which in 
Hebrew means flint, diamond or 
thistle, or in some senses dill as in 
pickle. He took to wearing smart 
suits, though with short-sleeved 
shirts and no tie. The bushy 
eyebrows remained, along with a 
carefully clipped moustache. . 

In 1970, at the age of 55, he 
decided to emerge into the day- 
light and to join the Herat 
movement of Menachem Begin. 
He was almost immediately 
elected to its executive. In 1 973 be 
entered the Knesset and was 
chosen as its speaker in 1 977. That 
made him a respected public 
figure, and in 1980 be was the 
natural choice as foreign minister. 

As the most senior government 
member, relatively untainted by 
the invasion of Lebanon, be 
succeeded Begin as prime minister 
in 1983. The drawn election the 
following year forced him to 
accept two years more as foreign 
minister while Peres had his turn • 
at running the country. Now 
Shamir is back in charge. 

“There will be no basic change 
of policy," he told me. “Not in the 
economy, in social issues or in 
relations with our Arab neigh- 
bours. But there are some dif- 
ferences of emphasis.” The main 
aim of foreign policy was to get 
peace with the Arab neighbours, 
“mainly by direct negotiations". 

But he was already erasing any 
commitment Peres may have 
given to an international peace 


"They have no relations with 
us. Their position on Soviet Jewry 
is very negative. Therefore, until 
they change their position, we will 
not agree to their involvement.’' 
Moscow, he said, wanted to 
impose solutions in the same way 
as the United Nations. "Israel 
exists now only because it did not 
accept the UN."Shamir does not 
even like the idea of some kind of 
international forum powerless to 
do any more than advise or help 
negotiations because the limita- 
tions on it might be removed. 

He sees no hope of peace with 
Syria beyond an uneasy stand-off 
maintained by a strong Israeli 
army. “I hope we will be able to. 
deter. We don’t want to have war, 
even if it is victorious. We want 
peace.” 


Beyond the quest for peace, 
which will remain the concern of 
Peres as well Shamir is promising 
lax reform, less bureaucracy and. 
greater help for independent busi- 
ness and industry. He repeats this 
parrot-fashion, with little real 
conviction, (ike a man who has 
learnt a distasteful script well. He 
dearly relies on Pe res to go on 
controlling wage demands to help 
him reduce inflation and control 
the economy. . 

He definitely does not accept 
that he will be under any pressure 
from his own right wing to build 
more Israeli settlements in the. 
occupied territories: “The only 
pressure I know is the pressure of 
my conscience." 


The government “is my copy- 
right” he boasts. “It will survive. I 
am not sure that we will not have 
another national ‘ unity govern- 
ment after this one, because the 
people like it." 


Three years ago. in a small, pea- 
green flat near Regent's Parte, I 
listened to two cassettes. They 
lasted a total of 35 minutes after 
which their owner came through 
from an adjoining room and 
switched his recorder off. “The 
best thing you can do is forget 
everything”, he coughed, leaning 
against a chest. “This room. This 
afternoon. Me." 

Accepting £50 in notes, he 
handed over a fistful of visiting 
cards, for others in similar need.

It is a common tale how a habit 
which gathered steam as a post- 
prandial pleasure became^ an 
addiction. From celebrating the 
end ofa meal it wasa short puff to 
celebrating the completion of an 
essay — and a shorter puff still to 
celebrate both the writing and the 
preparing of iL Within five years, 
.every minute of the day was 
accounted for in the delicious 
paraphernalia of tearing fresh 
wrappers, looking for a lighter, an 
ashtray, a tobacconist. No matter 
that when one smiled, it was to 
reveal a tantalising row of black 
teeth or that when one dressed it 
was in clothes full of yellow- 
fringed holes. 

I was 26 when it dawned on me 
that if 1 continued to smoke three 
packets a day (by now they were 
Players — I couldn't taste Turkish, 
so why pay more) 1 might not 
reach 30. Because I could not cut 
down by even a single cigarette, it 
would have to be all or nothing. 


So it was that 1 made an 
appointment by telephone with a 
gruff hypnotherapist who, accord- 
ing to a friend, enjoyed a 90 per 
cent success rate. Sucking deeply 
on my last stub. I walked into the 
large mansion block. “I imagine 
you'll be after Mr . . . ?" the hall 
porter asked, unsolicited. 

Mr turned out to be a 

small, elderly man who walked in 
a hunched shuffle and peered 
disinterestedly through thick spec- 
tacles. He had a moulting mous- 
tache and spoke with a hoarse 
gurgle. “Give me your cigarettes" 
he said. "And your lighter." 1 gave 
him the packet of 1 9 but declined 
to hand over my engraved silver 
lighter. A look of disappointment 
came and went. In silence he 
ushered me into a red chesterfield 
chair, turned on a cassette re- 
corder and sliding shut the door, 
disappeared into a small room. 
Within seconds, there came the 
unmistakeable sound of someone 
lighting up. 

Meanwhile, the tape had 
started. It was a crackled recording 
ofa talk he had given to a girl with 
bronchitis. Sensibly it did not 
dwell on the dangers of smoking. 


but of addiction. “Nicotine is the 
most addictive and poisonous 
drug in the world. Once it has got 
into your body, it stays for ever. 
You may give up smoking fin- 
twenty years, but after one puff it 
will only take four days before you 
are back on your original quota.” 
This message, accompanied by 
much bronchial cou ghing , was 
reinforced by the coughs now 
coming from the next room. 

For the next tape, I wore dark 
glasses. He lay me down on the 
couch, removed my shoes and 
reminded me that hypnotism was 
relaxation. "The subconscious ac- 
counts for 70 per cent of the 
mind's activities. When you began 
smoking, it was a conscious act If 
I can relax you and speak to the 
subconscious, it will then inform 
the conscious mind.” Beginning 
with the neck, and graduating to 
the toes, the voice relaxed my 
whole body and then repeated this 
appealing logic. To the tape’s end, 
I was totally conscious. 

After paying him, be warned 
that it would take ten days for the 
habit to dismantle. He had an- 
other tape if ! put on too much 
weight With that he closed the 
door on roe. I have not smoked 
since: nor do I mind others 
smoking. But occasionally I think 
of an elderly man furiously mak- 
ing his way through a packet of 
Players to the sound of- his own 
voice droning in the next room.

NHS spur for 


the spurious 



for 


anguish that those such as Henry 
Kissinger, who had warned 
against a hastily-pr epare d summit, 
and Richard Perie, the hawkish 
Assistant Secretary of Defence, 
have been proved right at least for 
now. 

In Congress, those opposed to 
arms control will be more vig- 
orous in their opposition; the 
right on the other hand, will 
applaud Reagan and try to dis- 
suade him from ever travelling

service's 800-odd general man- 
•gers and rewarding them if they 
meet die goals. 

Put like thai the idea sounds 
very sensible. Why not reward 
achievement with pay bonuses. 
Leu Peach, the new chief exec- 
utive of the NHS Management 
Board, formerly of IBM, says the 
new measures “mirror the sort of 
scheme you get in blue chip 
companies in the private sector.

from many organizations, private 
as well as public, on how managers 
respond to pressure from above.

• Inefficient performance: fo 
addition to seeking low targets, 
managers win overestimate the 
resources needed to accomplish 
any objective on which they ate 
assessed. Far from ensuring 
greater "efficiency", the new Sys- 
tem builds in a tendency towards 
the excessive use of resources. 

• Restricted performance: One of 
the benefits claimed for the new 
system is that it will give managers 
clear objectives and hence the 
“security" of knowing the criteria 
by which they are judged. So h 
will. But the obverse is also true. 
They will know the criteria on 
which they will not be assessed, 
the areas of the health service 
which they can safely ignore:

The US team left Iceland de- 
jected and bitter. Even the 
accompanying journalists sensed 
the mood.“!t's like going borne 
after losing die match,” said one. 
“Especially when you’ve been 
defeated by an own go al." 

Another big loser is Iceland. Not 
only will Reykjavik be forever 
associated with failure, and the 
hoped-for “spirit of Iceland” 
prove a chimera, but the disillu- 
sion with the whole process of 
summitry puts paid to Iceland's 
hope for having been the catalyst 
to a turning point in history. 

The reputedly haunted Hoftii 
House, will be haunted by the 
failure, if not by an actual ghost 


will encourage memciem ana suu- 
o primal performance, with much 
secrecy and fiddling. 

“Performance measurement in 
the NHS began in 1983. with all 
health districts compared on 70 
indicators of performance in four 
areas of work. Last year the figure 
had risen to 500 covering eight 
areas. Now four new tasks have 
been added. For all general man- 
agers, the health authorities shall; 

• Set targets for annual improve- 
ments in the district's perfor- 
mance. What these targets should 
cover, or the number, is not 
specified. 

• Define success as achieving 
these targets. Absolute improve- 
ments in the service will not 
suffice, no matter how significant. 

• Assess individuals on the basis 
of these organizational achieve- 
ments or failures. Managers will 
then be ranked into five bands of 
quality. 

• Attach sanctions to these re- 
sults: rewards or punishments as 
appropriate. Immediately, that 
means giving substantial annual 
bonuses or witholding even nor- 
mal inflation adjustments. But in 
the longer term, contract renewal, 
promotion and even pensions 
depend on the year's balance 
between performance and objec- 
tives. Bonuses will be paid only to 
general managers. No one else will 
benefit from the district's im- 
proved performance. 

It won’t work. The new system 
incorporates all the essential 
ingredients of Soviet manage- 
ment; and Soviet planning shows 
us how managers respond to such 
a control system. The short-term 
consequences may be grouped 
under four headings: 

• Low performance: When 
“success” (and bonus) depends on 
performance exceeding target, 
then even the dullest NHS man- 
ager will soon realize that there are 
two ways to “succeed" — either 
raise your performance or lower 
your target. Managers will have a 
positive interest in negotiating low 
targets, easy to achieve. Similarly, 
they will have an interest in not 
revealing the true performance 
potential of their organization. 
They wiB keep some capacity 
hidden in reserve, so that when 
something unexpected goes 
wrong, they can still meet their 
target (and win their bonus). 

And when they do “succeed", 
they will be careful not to succeed 
too grandly. Exceeding your target 
by too much gives the game away, 
lire boss would simply ratchet the 
objectives sharply upwards in the 


short in the long term by makingit 
t for 


more difficult for new people to 
join; (2) institutes crash pro- 
grammes. funded by shifting re- 
sources from other parts of the 
service; (3) provides quick but 
partial treatments; (4) provides 
less sophisticated or lower quality 
treatments; and (5) transfers pa- 
tients to another hospital or health 
authority. 

Clever general managers win 
sniff out these moves immedi- 
ately. The not-so-dever will re- 
quire two or three years of 
"Individual Performance Rev- 
iew”. By 199a all will be at it 

Then the advanced techniques 
of the really sophisticated prac- 
titioners will come into play, ploys 
like intentionally setting impos- 
sible objectives, reporting next 
year's performance this year, 
retrospectively reducing targets, 
devising multiple weighted in- 
dicators. simulataneously enforc- 
ing contradictory objectives and 
organizing collusion between the 
assessors and the assessed. Many 
imaginative variations lie ahead. 

The leaders of our health service 
are not ignoble when they seek to 
“clarify objectives, measure per- 
formance and reward achieve- 
ment". They are just naive. There 
is still time to learn from experi- 
ence. before we pay out too many 
bonuses for cheating.

I sometimes receive letters, as I 
am sure you do, which are phrased 
so personally that they could only

They tend to go like this.

manner. But they may also simu-

manipulate the indicators of suc- 
cess rather than improve the real 
underlying performance. In effect, 
they may cheat.Consider two 
examples. 

First, take that enduring NHS 
favourite, average bed stay length 
as a measure of efficiency. The 
instrumental manager could ach- 
ieve “success" in terms of this 
indicator by ensuring that the 
district: ( 1 ) admits many easy 
cases for short stays, people who 
would not otherwise have been 
hospitalized at all; (2) excludes, or 
keeps on the waiting list, the 
difficult long-stay cases; (3) dis- 
charges patients early, whether 
community care facilities are 
available or not: and (4) admits 
the same patients for multiple 
short stays. 

Or take the trendy target ofthe 
moment, reducing waiting lists. 
The cunning manager might en- 
sure that the district: (1) redefines 
“need" to exclude less serious 
cases, reducing the list in the 
short-term by removing some who 
are already on it, and keeping it

by - Mr Gorbachov 

(namely president Reagan’s 
renunciation of his Strategic 
Defence Initiative) and the 
one firm position held bv 
President Reagan (viz. the 
retention of his vision of 
strategic defence) were in- 
compatible. 

.. Thcyalways were incompat- 
f P 1 ? Pretence derived 
from the belief; encouraged bv 
the Soviet side at every turn, 
that the summit would con- 
centrate on everything but 
strategic defence. Up to the 
last hour of unscheduled talks, 
the West was promised a 
■“historic” offer of “deep” cuts 
in strategic nuclear missiles. 
We were promised the 
possibility of agreement on 
intermediate- range missiles in 
Europe, And we were prom- 
ised the possibility of a limited 
ban on nuclear testing. The 
tantalizing vision of a safer 
world was conjured up in 
blatant breaking of the news 
“blackout” — only to evapo- 
rate as the cold statements of 
failure were read out. 

Given that the nuclear 
stockpiles of both superpowers 
represent the ability to destroy 
each other many times over, 
even cuts of 50 per cent cannot 
provide that ultimate safety. 
“Deep cuts” coupled with 
even a “leaky” strategic de- 
fence would actually give both 
sides greater security. So the 
Soviet package offered a strate- 
gic illusion. But it was mas- 
terly public relations on the 
part of the Soviet leader and 
his America experts. 

The United States stood to 
lose at every stage. If President 
Reagan and his advisers had 
eschewed the opportunity pre- 
sented by Reykjavik, they 
would have been condemned 
by many in the United States 
and Western Europe for their 
apparent lack of interest in 
talking to the Russians. If they 
went part of the way in the 
negotiations, as they appar- 
ently did, they would come 
within an ace of a truly historic 
agreement: for the Soviet side • 
did indeed have much to offer. 

But when the US side 
baulked at going the full 
distance, which would have 
meant aborting the Strategic 
Defence Initiative in the earli- 
est stages of its life, the trap 
was sprung. Either the Krem- 
lin secured the end of SDI or 
the whole deal was off. And in 
that case the breakdown of the 
non-summit at Reykjavik 
could be blamed on the in- 
transigence of one man: Presi- 
dent Reagan, whose new 
interest in peace-making 
would thereby be exposed to 
all as a deceit So much 
progress, so nearly within our 
grasp, the world sighed on 
Sunday night 

But the world's response, 
aggravated by the naivete of 


the Strategic Defence Initia- 
tive, as it had been at Geneva, 
then the offers reportedly 
made by the Soviet side had no 
substance. 

If the Soviet side knew, as it 
must have known, that the 
concept of SDI was not for 
bargaining, then its much- 
vaunted “deep" cuts in missile 
numbers; its statements about 
progress on “regional issues” 
- the euphemism for such 
diverse troublespots in East- 
West relations as Afghanistan, 
Cambodia and. the Middle 
East — and even on human 
rights, or what the Soviet side 
prefers to call “humanitarian 
issues”, were so many fklse 
promires. 

Yet if the Soviet version is 
accepted, as it no doubt will be 
in many quarters in Western 
Europe and in the United 
States, President Reagan will 
be blamed for what may 
become a new period of frigid- 
ity in superpower relations. 
He will criticised by right- 
wingers to explain why he 
went to Reykjavik in the first 
place, having agreed with 
Gorbachov to meet next in 
Washington. And he will be 
criticised from the other ride 
of the political spectrum for 
not making the one concession 
that could have saved the 
summit. 

But this ignores the feet that 
President Reagan did make 
concessions. The agreement to 
reduce numbers of strategic 
and medium-range missiles 
was as much a concession for 
the United States as it was for 
the Soviet Union. And on SDI, 
he offered to extend the delay 
before any means- of strategic 
defence' were deployed from 
seven and a half to ten years. 
What President Reagan re- 
fused to do was to compromise 
US security — tuid, it should 
not be forgotten, the security 
of the Western alliance — for 
the sake of appearing to be a 
man of reason and peace. 

For the time being, Mr 
Gorbachov has won the propa- 
ganda battle of Reykjavik. He 
has emerged with, his peace- 
maker’s reputation intact. And 
he has reversed the defeat he 
suffered at Geneva eleven 
months ago when he returned 
to Moscow with an agreement 
to go to Washington but 
without a concession on SDL 
The Washington summit is 
now off the agenda. 

The Soviet leader has also 
gained a breathing space for 
his domestic programme. For 
all his initiatives to rein in the 
black economy, curb al- 
coholism and inspire the. 
Soviet work force to higher 
productivity, the Soviet 
growth rate .this year is not as 
high as it needs to be to reach 
Gorbachov's ambitious tar- 
gets. The cold winter of isola- 
tion the Soviet Union now 
feces can now be blamed on 


TWO CHEERS FOR BIRMINGHAM 


**" 


Birmingham has rarely caught 
the public imagination as 
Britain's second city. France 
has its Lyons, Spain its Barce- 
lona. Russia its Leningrad and 
Italy its Milan. But this coun- 
try has...? 

Manchester, Liverpool, 
Glasgow have each in their 
way presented to a curious 
world a coarse-grained picture 
of industrial Britain — honest 
and foil of character beneath 
its layer of 19th century grit 
Birmingham by contrast has 
represented not so much an 
image of the national land- 
scape as a blot on it — famous 
only for its cooling towers and 
.Aston Villa, its rows of red- 
brick terraces and several 
generations of Chamberlains. 

It is an unpromising rite on 
which to build a new Jeru- 
salem. But the city is trying at 
least to build a new Bir- 
mingham and it deserves na- 
tional and regional 
encouragement. Poorly en- 
dowed with parks, with build- 
ings of great architectural 
distinction and, more recently, 
with jobs, Birmingham is try- 
ing to make the best of what it 
has - and so for with some 
modest success. 

It stands, for instance, in the 
heartland of Britain's motor 
industry, such as it is. and at 
the junction of the country's 
motorway system. It embraces 
the National Exhibition 
Centre, which already accom- 
modates the national motor 
show and is now being dou- 
bled in size to vie for Inter- 
nationa! recognition. A£l05m 
conventional complex is being 
planned for the city centre. 


Equipped with an urban 
road network which has partly 
driven people underground, 
the city has pioneered For- 
mula-3 racing on the ringway 
which, though not perhaps to 
everyone’s taste, reflects an 
admirable spirit of 
entrepreneurialism. Earlier 
this month the “city of a 
thousand trades” became a 
clean-air metropolis, the larg- 
est smokeless zone in Britain. 
This week it was disclosed that 
the city council is trying to 
make it the first place in the 
country where the pubs re- 
main open all day — an. 
initiative which has more to 
do with its new image of 
internationalism than any un- 
due thirst for alcohol. 

The Music Advisory Panel 
of the Arts Council has re- 
sponded to all this by propos- 
ing to transform the City of 
Birmingham orchestra into 
one of the great orchestras of 
the world, thus capitalizing on 
another local asset This would 
mean an infusion of additional 
cash — though from where 
remains unclear. Later this 
week the rest of the world has 
its chance to show similar 
recognition of what Bir- 
mingham is doing when the 
International Olympics 
Committee makes known its 
choice of venue for the 1992 
Games. 

Few outside Birmingham 
expect that the city will win it 
Its proposal, built round the 
exhibition centre (for indoor 
sports) and a new secure 
stadium for athletics, is am- 
bitious and has won many 
friends. It has propelled Bir- 


mingham into second place 
behind Barcelona in what is 
largely now seen as a two- 
runners race. If Birmingham 
does not win . the city can rest . 
assured that it has made a 
brave try. It has put down a 
marker for future consid- 
eration — perhaps for the 
Games of 1 996. 

More than that however, it 
has helped to put Birmingham 
on the map at home as well as. 
abroad, whatever the result on 
Friday. That in itself will have 
made the effort worthwhile, 
not just for Birmingham but 
for Britain. The Midlands 
needs a capital a burgeoning 
metropolis to provide a focal 
point for commercial and 
cultural expansion during 
difficult times for the region. 

Few areas have suffered 
worse as the , country's great 
manufacturing industries have 
expired. Few cities are now 
fighting more vigorously to 
replace them with new service 
trades. Even Birmingham’s 
once famous football clubs 
have been passing through one 
of their darker hours, while not 
far away in Wolverhampton 
the national game is looking 
even worse. No Beatles have 
sprung to feme amid the dark 
Satanic mills while the local 
contribution to folk culture. 
Crossroads, has always come a 
poor second to Coronation 
Street. 

Endowed with this dwin- 
dling inheritance. Birmingham 
has set an example in self-help 
which should win official ap- 
proval in Mrs Thatcher's Brit- 
ain. We wish them success on 
Friday. If this comes, it will be 
richly deserved. 


LETTERS TO THE EDITOR 


Labour and the threat of war 


"certain circles” in the United 
States and President Reagan in 
particular. Mr Gorbachov has 
also won for -himself the 
opportunity to recommence 
nuclear testing. 

In the longer-term, however, 
the balance of Reykjavik is less 
certain. Preliminary soundings 
from the United States suggest 
that the abortive encounter 
with the Soviet leader has lost 
President Reagan little of his 
popular support, for his image 
thrives on the impression of 
strength. The Strategic De- 
fence -Initiative, while not 
especially popular with Con- 
gress, which may have to fund 
it, is the sort of grand, idealis- 
tic scheme many Americans 
can support so long as it seems 
scientifically feasible. So while 
the President may have lost 
some support in Congress 
(though how much the mid- 
term elections will show) by 
going to Reykjavik, he showed 
he was prepared to do business 
with the Soviet leader, and be 
did not give way. 

For Mr Gorbachov too the 
future is less certain. If he 
decides, as the Soviet military 
might wish him to do, to 
respond to the deadlock at 
Reykjavik by openly embark- 
ing on a Soviet version of SDL 
then some of the funds ear- 
marked for improving living 
standards will be channelled to 
the military. But Mr 
Gorbhchov has raised expecta- 
tions just enough to make 
early disillusionment dan- 
gerous. The risk of Polish-style 
discontent has worried the 
Kremlin sufficiently in the 
past for it to have been 
discussed as the highest level 

But it is in Western Europe 
that the spurious failure at 
Reykjavik holds the greatest 
risks. For it here where the 
image of Reagan as war- 
monger is most deeply en- 
trenched and here where the 
greatest prejudices against 
strategic defence hold sway. 
But it is important to keep a 
sense of proportion. The Reyk- 
javik summit was not a sched- 
uled summit inthe jirst place, 
and should be seen as an 
adjunct, not an essential, to the 
rebuilding of the superpower 
relationship. 

Moreoever, the two super- 
powers are still talking to each 
other, which is more than they 
were doing two years ago, and 
there is no personal animosity 
between their leaders. Then 
again there was progress in 
some areas which are just as 
important for the Western 
alliance, and for Western 
Europe in particular, as SDL 
human rights, regional issues, 
strategic range and medium- 
range missiles in Europe. These 
issues provide an opportunity 
for progress in the East-West 
relationshipas a whole "which 
could be build on, should the 
Soviet side modify its position 
on SDI. For the intransigence 
at Reykjavik was not in Presi- 
dent Reagan’s camp, but in the 
camp of Mr Gorbachov. 


From Vice-Admirat Sir James 
Jungius 

Sir. May 1 suggest that the most 
dangerous aspect of Mr Kinnoek's 
defence policy is that part m which 
he requires not only the with- 
drawal of American nuclear bases 
from Britain, but goes on to 
declare that in .no circumstances 
does he want Nato's nuclear 
weapons used on our behalf. All 
this in the context of a world in 
which the Soviet Union retains a 
nuclear arsenal and significant 
superiority in many conventional 
arms. 

Such a policy shows an 
astonishing lack of understanding 
of the nature of the Nato alliance, 
and incidentally no other member 
has adopted such a stance. The 
basis of the Nato treaty is in 
Article 5, which states that an 
attack on any one member shall be 
considered an attack on all mem- 
bers. 

In other words, if any part of 
Nato in Europe orm N America is 
attacked, then we are all in it 
together. In that situation the 
Alliance is not going u> tolerate a 
non-nuclear Britain having a veto 
on the possible use of audear 
weapons, if required for an effec- 
tive defence of the Alliance as a 
whole. 

If Britain tries to adopt that 
position the logical outcome is the 
expulsion of Britain from Nato 
(much to the delight of the hard 
left): or, perhaps more likely, the 
withdrawal of die US from the 
defence of Europe and the break 
up of an arrangement which has 
kept the peace in Europe for forty 
years. In any event. Mr Kura ode's 
policy is not compatible with Nato 
membership. 

Mr Healey knows all this per- 
fectly well, but prefers to bluster - 
his way out of admitting it Much 
more importantly, Mr Kinnock 
appears to neither know nor 
understand the basic facts of how 
Nato works. He tells us that he 
does not wish his country to die 
for him. If he has his way, it seems 
much more likely that his country 
will die because of him.

October 6. 

From Mr Alan Dent 
Sir, Your front page report (Octo- 
ber 6) of Service chiefs’ reaction to 


the Labour Party's defence policy 
does not surprise. Service chiefs 
are where they are because they 
have accepted the theory of deter- 
rence and can hardly be expected 
to engage in on-theepot apostasy. 

Dr John Gilbert, Labour's for- 
mer Defence Minister, is a dif- 
ferent matter, however. His 
notion that implementation of 
Labour's policy would leave us 
open to naked audear blackmail 
belongs in the “dungeons and 
dragons” school of international 
relations. It is only tenable if the 
Soviets are viewed as evil mon- 
sters devoid of conscience, unable 
to learn from events and incapable 
of anticipating tire consequences 
of their actions. 

Not even unreconstructed Bol- 
sheviks can relish the prospect of 
hosts of Chernobyl-like ' clouds 
swilling over Europe. Dr Gilbert's 
perspective, that of imputing Rus- 
sian bad faith in all possible 
circumstances is the very reason 
why an act of Western good faith 
is so necessary. 

It may be clear to Dr Gilbert 
(and to the Service chiefs) that the 
West has no aggressive interest, 
but why should it be dear to the 
Russians? From their point of 
view, our nuclear weapons must 
look distinctly like a threat and 
past examples of American adven- 
turism cannot provide much re- 
assurance. 

To suggest that, once no longer 
nuclear-armed, we would find the 
Russians demanding our sub- 
mission on pain of nuclear attack 
is laughably infantile. It is the 
response of a mind locked into the 
single-track mode of thought (or 
non-thought) which sees the Rus- 
■ sian bombas bad and the Western 
bombas good. Such a Manichaean 
view is what the Labour Party's 
policy seeks to change; for the real 
threat to all our lives is not the 
Russians but the bomb itself. 

As General Rogers put it only 
last week: “The menace we face in 
Europe is not the threat of war — 
the Soviets are just too smart for 
that.” They are too smart for 
nuclear blackmail too. Peace and 
nuclear disarmament are in the 
interests of the strained Soviet 
economy. They want desperately 
to survive. So should we.

Nuclear safety 

From Mr B. H. Parker, 

Sir. Your editorial on “Nuclear 
ambiguity” (October 2) is critical 
of the “tide of fear, under- 
standably rising after Chernobyl”. 
Quite so, but we should beware of 
mindlessly flooding to the defence 
of nuclear power; that is equally a 
form of panic 

The accident at Chernobyl and 
the earlier one at Three Mile 
Island have convinced most peo- 
ple that reactors are less safe than 
hithertotdaimed. The question is 
whether they are unacceptably so. 

As a one-time reactor physicist, 
I have followed the events -at 
Chernobyl and Three Mile Island 
with a great deal of interest. 
Despite Three Mile Island being 
only a near miss compared with 
the Russian accident, there are 


important parallels to be drawn 
from them. 

It appears that both reactor 
accidents arose through their op- 
erators carrying out unauthorised 
procedures which resulted in a 
rapid increase of power. In each 
case, also, this would have been 
automatically brought under con- 
trol had not safety protection been 
interfered with, the reactor designs 
allowing such interference. 

We now have to ask whether the 
two accidents invalidate the safety 
studies that have been widely 
quoted to assure us that the risk of 
a “maximum credible accident” in 
this country is so small as to be 
discountable. 

Yours sincerely, 

BRIAN PARKER,

Waiting lists 

From Dr John Fry 

Sir, The prominence given to the 

waiting times for admission to 

hospitals is welcome if it leads to 

improvements. 

However, there is another wait- 
ing list that causes much anxiety 
and inconvenience to patients and 
their family doctors. That is 
waiting for an out-patient appoint- 
ment to see a consultant 
The latest list of waiting times 
jrour local hospital (Beckenham) , 
is 30 weeks for ophthalmology, 10 ' 
to 13 weeks for ear, nose and 
throat, nine weeks for general 
surgery, nine weeks for ortho- 
paedics and rheumatology, eight 
weeks for gynaecology, three to 
four weeks for mental health and 
one to five weeks for general 
rnedicinefTbe different rates are 
for two consultants). 

It is embarrassing and wrong for 
a referring doctor to have to 
explain that the NH5 appoint- 
ment will be so long but the same 
consultant will be able to see the 
patient within a week or so. 

Yours sincerely, 

JOHN FRY,

Shell-Mex House 

From Mrs Josephine Milton 
Cashmore 

Sir, The Thirties Society has 
fought hard to save Sbell-Mex 
House on the Embankment. But 
this building, designed by my late 
husband and described recently by 
the Architect’s Journal as one of 
the best-loved of the 1 930s, is not 
listed and the local authority. 
Westminster, has passed plans for 
alterations to its familiar facade 
overlooking the Thames. Its 
classical, finely balanced front in 
Portland stone is to suffer the 
indignity of conspicuous bronze 
projections at a high level to 
facilitate viewing arrangements. 

Shell-Mex House, which sur- 
vived the Strand bombing in 1944. 
has been a welcoming sight to 
those crossing the bridge to Char- 
ing Cross or by Waterloo Bridge to 
Aldwyeh. since 1931. It is amazing 
to find that it has not been granted 
statutory protection by English 
Heritage. As things stand, in law 
its demolition could start af any 
time.

Share deals muddle 

From Mr P. Jefferson Smith 
Sin The article by your City Editor 
on October 6, entitled “VAT on 
share deals muddle”, dealt with a 
ruling that we gave on the applica- 
tion of VAT law to dual capacity 
companies and described it as “an 
unexpected spanner in the City’s 
preparations for the Big Bat®". 

The ruling was, in feet, given m 
June and it followed a meeting 
with the Stock Exchange in which 
the issues were aired at some 
length. All that happened Iasi 
week was that the Stock Exchange 
sent to us for agreement - which 
subject to some drafting amend-

Counting cost 
of enterprise 

. From Mr John Parfitt 
Sir. In April this year the company 
I had worked for for nearly 17 
years made me redundant I 
mounted the bicycle prescribed 
for me by the chairman of my own 
party and obtained employment 
ISO miles away. 

I have just finished paying the 
bills for my own enterprise. They 
include £560 in VAT on my 
solicitors', estate agents' and 
removers' Mis, £1,250 stamp duty 
on the purchase of a new house 
and £255 for the Land Registry. 

For this outlay of well over 
£2.000'ihe only palpable service i 
received was a map from the Land 
Registry which was so inaccurate 
that my solicitors are still trying to 
find out just what minute piece of 
Gloucestershire I actually own: 
there are no prizes for guessing 
who will pay for that. 

Sympathy is not required: the 
handshake was reasonably gold- 
plated and the house was not 
cheap, but even if it bad been I 
should still have paid several 
hundred pounds for exactly noth- 
ing. 

I do not mind mounting the 
bicycle, nor indeed paying for it. 
But being taxed on it is surely 
ridiculous!

Choice of schools 

From the Head Mistress of 
Queenswood School 
Sir, Perhaps Amanda Atha and 
Sarah Drummond would have 
found it a salutary experience to 
have been in the staff common 
room on the morning their article, 
“Lock up your daughters to learn” 
(October 8). appeared in your 
paper. They would not have found 
“staffpower" lacking in this all- 
girls independent boarding school, 
where expectations are hreh and 
the staff, both male and female, 
are energetic and purposeful. 

Married teachers involve them- 
selves at weekends and in the 
evenings; furthermore the girls are 
staying on into the sixth form, not 
“bolting to Marlborough”. 

The negative image portrayed in 
this article is misleading and 
unjust Many girls' schools can 
boast excellent academic results, 
highly qualified staff, first-rate 
music and drama departments, 
quality Sports facilities, informa- 
tion technology departments, en- 
gineering facilities, Duke of 
Edinburgh Award schemes, 
exploration societies and more. 

The arbitrary remarks of these 
self-appointed “experts” cannot 
have failed to arouse indignation, 
particularly as there are many 
good schools they foiled to visit 
where the quality of “loving care 
and dedicated teaching” is still 
very much in evidence. 

Yours faithfully.

From Mr Andrew Hooper 
Sir, I have found your Good 
Schools Guide (October 6-10) of 
considerable interest muhum in 
parvo. Inevitably, I suppose, it 
leaves many questions unan- 
swered. Why, for instance, the 
catch-penny notion of a “top 
twenty”? On what basis(es)? And 
who are your writers? 

What I find most irritating, 
however, are the occasional lapses 
into extroverted diche. Particu- 
larly unworthy of you is the fiuuity 
“bottom line”. A it isn’t. B, there 
is a word which says precisely 
what your writers mean: “fees". 
Perhaps you were able to dissuade 
them from replacing “head" with 
“topline"? •

Baying British 

From the Chairman of the British 
Clothing Industry Association Ltd 
Sir. Woodrow Wyatt's article 
(October 4) is a timely reminder 
that unemployment is not the sole 
responsibility of government. We 
can all contribute to relieving it. 

However, it is too simplistic to 
advocate buying British to the 
exclusion of all other goods. It is 
necessary to took at products from 
all sources, whether competitors 
in the Western world or from low- 
labour-cost countries and to 
examine them against standards' 
of quality, design and price. It is 
only when goods manufactured in 
Britain match international stan- 
dards that one can advocate their 
purchase. 

What is required is for manufac- 
turers and retailers in this country 
to work together to ensure that 
British goods are the best available 
so that they become the natural 
first choice of the consumer. 

In the clothing industry we are 
only too well aware of imports and 
are constantly working to ensure 
that merchandise is sourced in this 
country rather than abroad, but 
such a policy only works when 
there is a firm intention on the 
pan of the retailer to buy at home 
and a willingness on that of the 
manufacturer to produce goods 
which are better than those from 
overseas.

hopes they will release him to-day

Lamu, Kenya, which is be- 
lieved to date to around 
AD 950. 

Shanga wasa coastal trading 
settlement that supplied raw 
materials from the interior to 
merchants sailing the Indian 
Ocean. Monsoon winds en- 
abled this maritime trade to 
link the sea coasts of East 
Africa to the Red Sea, the 
Persian Gulf, and India. 

The products from Africa 
that were most in demand 
were ivory, timber, gold, and 
at certain times, slaves. Classi- 
cal authors such as Ptolemy 
tell of pons frequented by 
Greek ships, extending from 
Ceylon to East Africa. 

However, the ‘ first 
archaeological evidence for 
trade with East Africa comes 
from the eighth century AD

on September 1 6, at the age of 
57, combined a varied teach- 
ing career with his special 
interests as an archaeologist 

Graduating from lung's -

several schools in the north- 
east of England before going to 
Dundee to lecture in applied 
science at Duncan- of 
Jordan stone College of Art. 

When, in 1958, a Roman : - 
well was discovered in New- 
castle. he collected the animal 
bones the archaeologists left 
behind. His studies of these 
expanded into a thesis on the 
faunal remains from various 
Roman and native sites in 
northern England. 

During the early 1970s he 
published a series of reports 
on animal remains from sites, 
among them The Animals of 
Vindmanda (1976) and the 
more detailed Vindolanda U 
(1977).

Miners’ 

union 

numbers 

dwindle 







By Tim Jones 

For the fust time in 50 
years, the once mighty Na- 
tional Union of Mweworkers, 
the “storm trooper'’ of the 
union movement, is sliding 
towards the position where it 
will no longer command an 
seat on the central policy 
making body of the TUG 

Faced with crippling debts, 
an accumulating £250,000 
overdraft the problems that 
face Mr Arthur Scargill, presi- 
dent, and his national exec- 
utive committee are 
compounded with the 
announcements that British 
Coal intends to dose three pits 

which employ 1,805 miners. 

The three pits, 
Tilmansione. in Kent and 
Namgarw and Cwm, in South 

Wales, are all deep in militant 
Scargill territory. 

The job losses push the 
membership of the be- 
leaguered president’s union 
perilously dose to the 100,000 
mark, below which be can no 
longer have the right for 
automatic TUC selection. 

Now, because of pit clo- 
sures, the formation of the 
breakaway Union of Demo- 
cratic Mine workers, and gen- 
erous redundancy terms, Mr 
Scargill may be the last NUM 
member who can claim a seat 
on the TUC inner sanctum. 

British Coal figures show it 
employs 126,000 

mineworkers. The UDM 
claims at least 30,000, reduc- 
ing the NUM to below the 
magic 100, (XX).

will receive President Mitter- 
rand of France at Downing 
Street Though the meeting is 
ostensibly to discuss arrange- 
ments for December’s Euro- 
pean Coundl meeting in 
London, East-West relations 
are high on the agenda. 

Mr George Shultz, the US 
Secretary of Slate, yesterday 
flew from Reykjavik to Brus- 
sels and spent nearly three 
hours briefing Nalo foreign 
ministers seeking renewed 
support from the allies for Mr 
Reagan's position. 

Mr Timothy Renton, Min- 
ister of State at the Foreign 
Office, blamed the Russians 
for resurrecting Star Wars as a 
negotiating issue, but refused 
to describe the summit as a 


failure. 

What was surprising, he 
said, was that the two leaders 
had got so far. Important 
details had been discussed and 
serious proposals had em- 
erged. There was now an 
“absolute determination" to 
build on these “substantive 
ideas" and to keep the mo- 
mentum going. 

“The prize in sight is very 
great indeed, but the detail is 
very difficult," he said. 

Mr Neil Kmnocfc, leader of 
the Labour Party, said the Star 
Wars concept was “flawed 
militarily, strategically, politi- 
cally and scientifically" and 
that “it must not be the chain 
which binds the world to the 
huge costs and dangers of 
current or increasing nadear 
arms build-up".

harder to handle. “Five years 
ago you could walk into even a 
junior school here and get 
kicked on the ankle because of 
your job. It has taken a lot of 
solid police work to get even 
the kids to listen. But with all 
talking on this 'hard estate 
today — it's not an estate, it's 
become one family.” 

It is a family often incoher- 
ent with rage. In The Hiker’s 
Rest dealer Ken Parker waved 
a tattered sheet on which 


residents and businessmen 
had already pledged close to 
£10,000 to a reward fond. 

“The money is going to be 
ready to go to the person who 
points this bastard oul We 
give money because it's all we 
can do. Someone knows him. 
Money talks and money 
makes people speak out. Sus- 
picion, one family against 
another, is already tearing the 
place apart." 

All about him were nods of

potence of men made passive

one yet identified on whom to 
vent h. And in their wilder 
talk of lynching was the 
wearying recognition that this 
was unreality too. That the 
stranger with sweets whom 
they pray will turn out to be a 
stranger and not a neighbour, 
nor a friend or a son, will be 


taken by painstaking police 
work and absurdly polite po- 
lice officers. 

Somewhere on quiet estates 
of police homes along the 
Downs there are at least 58 
officers who went to bed last 
night asking themselves “was 
there anything, anything more 
I should have said? " Like PC 
Mac they wonder how do you 
get it across to innocents that

between the United Kingdom 
and the People’s Republic of 
China are closer than they 
have ever been. This owes 
much to the settlement 
worked out between us for the 
future of Hong Kong. Both 
our countries are committed 
to doing everything possible to 
maintain Hong Kong’s conti- 
nued stability and prosperity," 
die said. 

President U said the 
Queen's visit was “an im- 
portant milestone in the an- 
nals ofSino-British relations," 
a phrase he had used earlier in 
the day when he and the 
Queen met for informal talks. 

The Queen's principal gift 
to the President was Royal 
Society scholarships to allow 
Chinese scientists to study in 
Britain. She received an em- 


broidered portrait of herself; a 
bronze replica of a chariot 
from the Terracotta Army at 
Xian and a drawing of a giant 


welcome song, “the beautiful 
flowers of friendship 
blossom". 

The square was decorated 
with a billowing sea of red 
fla g s , and a handful of Union 
Jacks. A crowd had gathered 
in the main boulevard beyond

leader Mr Deng Xiaoping, 
whom she will meet today. Mr 
Deng Junior is confined to a

out of a window at Peking 
University by Red Guards

Earlier in the day the Queen 
attended her official ceremony 
of welcome in Tienanmen, the 
world’s largest square,' from 
which the curious public was 
barred while die listened to 
the National Anthem, in- 
spected a guard of honour and 
watched a group of school- . 
children dance and sing the 


country by the Prince and 
Princess of Wales. 


the square in the hope of 
catching a glimpse of the 
Queen’s-28-car motorcade. 

She entered the Great Hall 
of the People to talk to 
President Li in a reception 
room deep among a labyrinth 
of vast, empty and echoing 
marble corridors. 

The Queen sat nervously on 
the edge of her seat listening to 
the interpreter and fumbling 
in her handbag for her glasses, 
while Mr Li sprawled in his 
armchair, sipped tea, laughed 
and talked of Churchill and a

Letter from Everest 


Climbers unlucky 
for the third time 


When it came, ibe ava- 
lanche thundered from the 
I North-East Rktec of Mount 
i Everest. A WjjyW} 

: mile long and 3,000ft htgh 
i broke free with a violent 
! crack and slid into the east 
RongbukgtmCT.jamP^ 1 ^ 
across it with high clouds of 
powder snow and a low 
tongue of devouring ice. 

The shock wave coludea 
with the Wall of Cbangwc 
more than a mile away on the 
opposite side of the semi- 
circle of mountains, trigger- 
ing smaller avalanches 
around the North CoL 
Tire 18 British climbers 
attempting the ridge had 
already withdrawn to the 
safety of advance base an 
hour earlier, anticipating an 
onslaught from the unstable 
snow. They have between 
them about 400 years experi- 
ence of belligerent moun- 


another soul-destroying 
trudge through wrist-deep 
snow" 

Even so. (he North-Easi 
Ridge of Everest is a fine 


objective. Soaring like a huge 
blade in a straight litre from 
zhe glacier to the summit 
Two expeditions, both Brit- 
ish, tried unsuccessfully to 
climb it and two of Britain's 
best mountaineers, Mr Peter 
Boardman and Mr Joe 
Tasker, died on the pinnacles, 
spires of ice-covered rock that 
rise just before the junction of 
the north and north-east 
ridges. 

The present expedition has 
reached a high point of 
25.500 fcet just short of the 
site of its third camp which 
wifi be the launch point for 
ihe assault on the pinnacles. 

Mr Joe Brown, a British 
mountaineer, said that every- 
thing would depend on tire 
condition of the snow and 
using oxygen sets. 

The climbers have now 
lifted enough food, climbing 
gear and oxygen cylinders 
onto the ridge -to sustain a 
summit bid once a bridge- 
head has been established 
beyond the pinnacles. 

What they desperately 
need are a few calm da ys free 
of soft snow in the two weeks 
remaining before tire yaks 
and lorries are due to amvc 
to dear the mountain and 
before the Himalayan winter 
descends with temperatures 
and wind strengths that make 
mountaineering impossible. 

But in that wizard's kitchen 
that determines the weather 
on Everest, nothing is certain. 
Traditionally there is a spell 
of good conditions. lasting ap 
to two weeks, after the mon- 
soon has finished and before 
.the winter clamps down. 

But instead the dimbera 
have endured three severe 
storms that forced retreat and 
covered Everest with more 
that eight fret of fresh snow in 
one month. 

Winter is creeping into 
base camp with a vengeance, 
covering the moraine with 
fresh snow and turning the 
river to ice. 

Morale remains good on 
the mountain, but the climb- 
ers have now spent more than 
two months working hard at 
high altitude which has re- 
duced many of them to slim 
versions of their former 
selves. 

On Friday six dimbers 
returned to the ridge to set up 
camp aware. that both time 
and strength are running out 

Ronald Faux 


tains. 

The high camp on the tip of 
the east Rongbuk Moraine, 
the traditional launching 
point for attempts on Everest 
from the north, proved once 
again to be safe from the 
reach of the avalanche al- 
though the small huddle of 
tents were lashed by the 
spindrift. 

Earlier, the lead dimbers. 
fixing ropes along the lip of 
the ndge where the cornices 
of wind-blown snow over- 
hung the Kangshung free of 
Everest, felt the deep, fresh 
layers become more unstable. 

Mr Peter Long, a mountain 


guide and roofing contractor 
from Edinburgh, said: “The 
under surface creaked and 
felt very unstable. I looked 
round and wished just at that 
moment 1 was somewhere 
rise. 1 was really quite 
afraid." 

For the third time in less 
than a month the British 
expedition to the undimbed 
North-East Ridge was forced 
to retreat before an approach- 
ing storm that brought down 
the entire mountain wall 
across their route. 

The last storm confined the 
climbers in their tents for 50 
hours. It dumped nearly four 
feet of fresh snow on their 
route, buried their pains- 
takingly fixed ropes and filled 
m their tracks along the ridge. 

Mr Brummie Stokes, the 
leader of the Sdigmann Har- 
ris Mount Everest 1986 Ex- 
pedition, said: It puts us back 
to where we were nearly a 
month ago. We can only hope 
that high winds will strip 
away this new fell and allow 
us to move fester along the 
ridge, otherwise it will be 


It was largely a day of 
sightseeing for the Queen. She 
walked through the Forbidden 
City, from the Gate of Su- 
preme Harmony to the Gate 
of Heavenly Purity; dressed in 
a brilliant red coat the colour < 
of Chinese lacquer. Passers-by j 
flocked to see her, smiled 
broadly, took her picture, and ! 
awarded her polite ripples of ! 
applause.

Cose Brothers, the mer- 
chant bank and investment 
group, added to its portfolio ot 
specialized financial busi- 
nesses yesterday by acquiring 
• Air and General Finance, a 
company involved in the 
financing of medium-sized 
aircraft 

The initial consideration is 
£3.3 million in cash but two' 
further payments in the form 
of loan notes amounting to 
£550,000 each will be made on 
the condition that profits of 
£540,000 and £768,000 are 
made for the years ending July 
1987 and July 1988. On this 
basis the exit p/e ratio is 
between 8 and 10 times. 

Mr Roderick Kent manag- 
ing director of Cose Brothers, 
said yesterday; “We have 
known the company for some 
time as its owner, Mr Victor 
Cannock, is one of our bank- 
ing clients. It fulfils the 
crilerea we set down for 
acquisitions." 

Bryant issue 

Bryant Holdings, the house- 
building, property and' 
contracting .company, is to 
raise £1 7.4 million by way of a 
one-for-four rights issue. Pre- 
tax profits for the year to May 
31 were up 15.8 per cent to 
£13.5 million on turnover up 
30 per cent to £157 million. 
The dividend was raised 12 
per cent to 3. 7p per share. 

Tempos, page 25

iary. Anna, both moulding

Industrial costs 
leap because of 
slide in pound 

By David Smith, Economics Correspondent 


The slide in the pound 
pushed industry’s costs 
sharply higher last month. 
Manufacturing industry’s raw 
material and fud costs 
jumped by 1.7 percent. 

But there was good news for 
the Government on prices at 
the factory gate. In the 12 
months to September, pro- 
ducer output prices rose by 
just 4.4 per cent, the slowest 
pace since 1972. The 12- 
month rises for the previous 
three months have been re- 
vised downwards — to show 
4.4per cent rises. 

The strong rise in indusriy's 
costs last month was a direct 
result of the pound's weak- 
ness. it fell by 0.9 per cent 

X ' ist the dollar last month, 
a 1.5 per cent drop in 
August 

The sterling index fell by 3-6 
per cent in August and by 1.4 
per cent in September. Since 
then sterling's fell has accel- 
erated although yesterday cur- 
rencies were generally steady 
with the US markets quiet 


because of the Columbus Day 
holiday. . 

The pound was steady yes- 
terday at $1.4340, but it 
dropped by 1-4 pfennigs to 
DM2.8372 — near its record 
low. The sterling index slipped 
from 67.6 at the dose on 
Friday to 67.5. 

The money markets in 
London were subdued in ad- 
vance of the Chancellor’s 
speech at the Mansion House 
on Thursday. The three- 
month inter-oank rate closed 
at 10% per cent. • 

The 1.7 per cent rise in 
industry’s raw material and 
fuel costs last month followed 
a 0.7 per cent rise, on un- 
adjusted figures, in August In 
both cases sterling’s fell was 
the dominant factor. 

A firming of commodity 
prices, including petroleum 
products, also contributed to 
the increase in costs. 

The Government is un- 
likely to be over-concerned at 
this stage about the rise in 
industry’s costs. As a result of 


PRODUCER PRICE 
INFLATION 


r-3% 



the earlier sharp fell in oil 
prices, the index of industry’s 
costs last month was still 7.4 
per cent down on the 
corresponding month. In Au- 
gust costs were 9 per cent 
lower than a year earlier. 

However, the initial bene- 
fits ofiower oil prices will now 
begin to pass through the 
recorded inflation indices. In 
March, for example, 
industry's costs were 1 1.1 per 
cent lower than a year earlier. 

Industry’s output prices 
rose by 0.3 per cent last 
month, after a 02 per cent rise 
in August and a 0.1 per cent 
increase in July. 

Thus, although the 12 
month rate of output infla- 
tion, 4.4 per cent, was 
encouraging, there are indica- 
tions that prices are edging 
upwards. 

Retail price figures, due on 
Friday, are expected to show 
an upturn in the inflation rate 
from 2.4 per cent in August to 
about 3 per cent last month. 

In Paris the French Govern- 
ment gave a warning about an 
upturn in inflation, with the 
September retail price index, 
due to be published on Mon- 
day, officially expected to 
have shown a rise of between 
03 and 0.4 per cent compared 
with the 0.1 per cent increase 
in August. 

In Germany the Federal 
Statistics Office announced a 
0.6 per cent rise in wholesale 
prices for last month, the first 
monthly increase since 
November. Prices were still 
8.1 per cent lower than a year 
earlier. 


Clausen’s 
new role 
puzzles 

By Richard Thomson 
Baalmig Correspondent 

Wall Street was puzzled 
yesterday by the weekend 
appointment of Mr Tom 
Clausen, former bead of the 
World as chairman and 
chief executive of 
BankAmerica Corporation, 
the troubled United States 
banking giant, after Mr Sam 
Armaoost resigned last week. 



Tom Clausen: “chief 
architect of problems” 

Mr Armacost resigned as 
criticism mounted over his 
inability to control the bank's 
bad debts, now well over £1 
billion. But BankAmerica's 
shares remained virtually un- 
changed at about S14tt 
yesterday. 

Mr Clausen is widely re- 
garded as the chief architect of 
BankAmerica's problems by 
following an aggressive and 
misguided lending policy dur- 
ing his previous tenure as 
chairman during the 1970s- 

Tbe view yesterday was that 
Mr Clausen was only under- 
taking a very short-term rote 
as a caretaker, possibly as a 
prelude to BankAmerica ag- 
reeing to the bid made last 
week by First Interstate Bank,

TSB flotation may 
face investigation 


By Richard Thomson 


The Government may face 
further e m b ar rassment over 
the TSB because of an in- 
vestigation planned by the 
National Audit Office into 
whether the £13 billion flota- 
tion was a sale of state assets. 

The NAO is considering the 
need to examine the subject- U 
an investigation is made, the 
NAO will report to Par- 
liament The NAO is an 
independent, civil service 
body responsible ibr certifying 
government accounts. It also 
investigates the use of re- 
sources by government - 

The need fo r an investiga- 
tion into the TSB flotation 
stems from a ruling last Au- 
gust by Lord Tempieman that 
the bank belonged to the state. 
This contradicted the govern- 
ment view that no one owned 
the bank. 

Although the Tempieman 


ruling was interpreted by 
many, to mean that the. Gov- 
ernment was selling a public 
company without keeping the 
proceeds itselC the Treasury 
decided to go ahead 

All proceeds from the share 
issue have gone to the bank 
and not the Government If 
the NAO found that it had 
been a sale of state assets, the 
Government would face 
charges of giving away £1.5 
billion of taxpay ers* m oney. 

Meanwhile, TSB shares 
continued to decline yes- 
terday. 

Stockbrokers reported a 
moderate level of private- 
investor selling which forced 
the price down to about 82p. 
But each lime this happened, 
institutional investors stepped 
in to buy and pushed the price 
up again. The shares closed at 
84.5p.

Mr John Hafl, Geordie builder and centre’s originator 

£200m shopping 
landmark opens 


The Metro Centre, the £200 
million out-of-town retail and 
leisure development near 
Newcastle upon Tyne, which 
when complete is expected to 
rate among the top 10 in the 
world, with more than 200 
shops, was opened yesterday 
by Mr Nicholas Ridley, Sec- 
retary of State for the 
Environment 

Two more phases are still to 
come, the first adding a farther 
90 simps and some leisure 
developments while the other 
will bring hotels, a water 
sports lake and a do it yourself 
shopping complex. 

Metro Centre, half as big 
again as the Milton Keynes 
shopping mall, includes the 
first out-of-town stores for two 
of Britain’s biggest retailers, 
the Hone of Fraser depart- 
ment store group and Marks 
and Spencer. 

The Marks store, with 
94JJOO sq ft, is at one end of 
the half mile-long mall, at the 
other is a Carrefour 
hypermarket 

The pivotal store is the 
House of Fraser outlet built at 
a cost of £11 milfioo on two 
floors featuring extra wide 
walkways and elaborate ceil- 
ing detail and li ghfog- There 
are two restaurants and a 
supervised activity centre for 
children. 

Ami it is flie first store in the 
group to trade as House of 
raser and this style will now 


he echoed progressively 
thro ugh the chain. 

It is the first British 
commission for the New York 
designer, Mr Andre RneUan, 
who has aimed to bring a 
flavour of Macy’s and 
Bloomhigdales to Britain. 

The next store to open after 
getting the new treatment will 
be the Barkers of Kensington 
store in Loudon, where 
refurbishment is costing £10 
miliian. 

Arnottsin Glasgow is being 
refurbished at a cost of £6 
million and will be among the 
earlier revamps to be 
completed. 

At yesterday’s Metro 
Centre opening Mr Brian 
Walsh, chief executive of fire 
House of Fraser, said: **1116 
store reflects all that is good 
for the cus tom er, the mer- 
chandise is easily seen, 
colourful and logically laid oat 
and the whole ambience re- 
flects pleasant shopping.” 

He paid tribute to the vision 
of Mr John Hall of Cameron 
Hall Developments, the devel- 
opers, in creating the Metro 
Centre. 

Mr Hall is a Geordie 
builder and says the Metro 
Centre, built on 100 acres of 
former British Coal brad sooth 
of the Tyne, has been designed 
by North East people for 
North East people. 

He has more, but not quite 
so large, developments 
planned for Middles brongh, 
Exeter and the Midlands. 


City throws out 
£150m scheme 
for Spitalfields 

By Judith Huntley, Commercial Property Com^pondent 


The City of London Corp- 
oration, owner of the Spit- 
alfields Market on the east 
side of the Square Mile, has 
rejected the £150 million offer 
by the Spitalfields Develop- 
ment Group, the consortium 
of London & Edinburgh Trust 
and Balfour Beany, to develop 
the market with 1.3 million sq 
ft of offices. • 

The City's Policy and Re- 
sources Committee is 
recommending that the Court 
of Common Council reject the 
developer's offer and put the 
14-acre site out to lender. 

Other contenders for Spit- 
alfields are Rosehaugh Stan- 
hope, developer of the 3 
million sq ft office develop- 
ment next to Liverpool Street 
Station, and C H Beazer. 

Mr Peter Rigby, the chair- 
man of the Policy and Re- 
sources Committee, said last 
night: “The SDG offer was so 
hedged around with con- 
ditions that it was difficult to 
tell what it would mean in net 
financial terms to the Corp- 
oration. 

“It was simply a speculative 
offer based on being given 
planning permission for the 
site from the London borough 
of Tower Hamlets. 

“There is a vast discrepancy 
between that council’s plan- 
ning brief for the market site, 
which splits into 45 per cent 
offices and 55 per cent 
residential and the SDG plan 
which covers 85 per cent of the 
site with offices.” 

Mr Rigby also described 


SOG^ £150 million offer as 
misleading as this was the top- 
line figure. By the time the 
costs of creating a new market 
elsewhere and interest charges 
on the Bishopsgale frontage to 
the site, owned by SDG, were 
deducted, the Corporation 
would not see any returns for 
its land, he said. 

The SDG was hoping the 
necessary Bill to move the 
Spitalfields market would go 
before Parliament next 
month. Bui the City Corpora- 
tion is not prepared to do this 
and it will be a year before a 
Bill goes before Parliament. 

SDG is offering a site in east 
London to the Spitalfields* 
traders for a new market 
Rosehaugh Stanhope has sug- 
gested an alternative location. 

The City Corporation, how- 
ever, said yesterday that while 
the possibility of moving the 
traders had not been ruled out 
time was needed for devel- 
opers to agree the planning 
position with Tower Hamlets 
and for the corporation to 
reach agreement with its ten- 
ants and other interested 
parties. 

SDG has always maintained 
its scheme was not specu- 
lative. Salomon Brothers, the 
American finance house, was 
named as the prospective 
tenant for most of the offices 
at Spitalfields — one of the few 
sites on the City's hinges able 
to meet the need for large 
offices resulting from Big 
Bang. 


Opec meets to cover 
cracks on quotas 

From David Young. Geneva 


Opec ministers last night 
reassembled in full ministerial 
session after a week of 
committee meetings in an 
effort to reach an agreement 
which will do as much to 
restore their own credibility as 
it will to restore the world oil 
price to their target of $ 1 7- 1 9 a 
barrel 

A radical new quota system 
has been suggested by the 
various Opec committees but 
it has yet to clear the hurdle of 
full ministerial approval 
Ministers are still making 
confident noises but they 
know that the world oil mar- 
ket expects dear signs within 
the next 24 hours that they are 
working to maintain the 
present comparative stability 
in the oil markets. 

Dr Maria Saeed A1 Otoiba, 
the United Arab Emirates oil 
minister, said yesterday that 
he was hopeful that a new 
agreement would emerge 
soon. 

However, Sheikh AH 
Khalifa, the Kuwait oil min- 
ister, is still asking for his 
country’s output quota to be 
increased. 


A possible way of making 
any new agreement palatable 
. to Kuwait has been suggested. 
It would mean Kuwait keep- 
ing its present output quota 
but being allowed to increase 
sales to its customers by 
drawing from substantial 
stocks it holds at its oil 
terminals. 

• The last round of Opec 
production cuts solved 99 per 
cent of the problems of the 
world oil market, the oil 
minister of non-Opcc Oman 
said yesieday. 

In an interview with the 
Arabic daily Oman. Said bin - 
Ahmed al-Shanfari said 
Opec’s temporary quota 
agreement had stabilized 
prices at about $15 a barrel up 
from the single figures before 
the accord andthat the agree- 
ment had restored optimism 
for stable market prices, 
benefitting Opec. non-Opec 
producers and consumers. 

He said non-Opec produc- 
ers bad a part to play in the 
success of the Opec quota 
system and that the present 
price stability had been helped 
by their co-operation in 
cutting production. 


Avis Europe forecasts 
29% rise in profits 


By Alexandra Jackson 


The pathfinder prospectus 
for Avis Europe, which was 
published yesterday, forecasts 
pretax profits of not less than 
£33 million for the year to 
February 1987. This repre- 
sents a 29 per cent increase on 
the 1985-86 figure of £25.5 
million. 

Mr Aiun Cathcart, -the 
group's managing director, 
said yesterday that “1986-87 
will be a very good year for 
Avis Europe. It will be the first 
year for some time which is 
entirely free of restructuring 
costs”. 

Avis Europe is seeking a 
listing on the London Stock 
Exchange later this month 
through an offer for subscrip- 
tion of new and existing 
shares. This will be sponsored 
and underwritten by Morgan 
Grenfell Holdings. The mar- 
ket capitalization of Avis 
Europe after flotation will be 


in the region of £270 million. 

Avis Europe is made up of 
the US company Avis Inc’s 
interests in Europe, the Mid- 
dle East and Africa. Its turn- 
over in 1985-86 was £197 
million. This is forecast to rise 
to at least £225 million. 

Avis Europe is expected to 
raise about £30 million of new 
money, half of which will be 
used to pay the US parent 
company for trade mark and 
system licences. After the 
flotation. Avis Inc is expected 
to retain about a third of the 
equity. 

Avis Europe is active in the 
field of fleet leasing and 
mangement as well as its car 
rental operation. Within the 
car rental market where the 
group is believed to have an 
18 per cent market share, the 
share of the airport market is 
thought to be 32 per cent

Lead and zinc 
prices highest 
for 17 months 

Lead and zinc prices both 
touched 17-month highs on 
the London Metal Exchange 
yesterday as the bullish tone 
was underlined by figures 
showing sharp withdrawals of 
both metals from -LME ware- 
houses during the past week. 

Lead for three months 
delivery reached £312 a tonne 
at one stage — a rise of £30 
over the past six trading days 
— while zinc jumped by £12 to 
£628, although both metals 
fell tack before the close. 

The fell in LME stocks was 
particularly significant for 
zinc, leaving just 21,125 
tonnes in warehouses, the 
lowest figure for 11 years. 

Apart from a strong supply- 
demand picture, traders say 
prices have also responded to 
the possibility of renewed 
industrial unrest at Broken 
Hill mines.

End of a golden era looms 


The Welsh gold mine whose 
precious metal has adorned 
the fingers of six royal brides 
may end its days as just 
another stop on the Snowdonia 
tourist trail . 

Shareholders in Gogan 
Gold Mines yesterday voted 
by an overwhelming majority 
to accept the board's proposals 
for effective control ei the 
company to pass to Mr Lee 
Tee, an Anstralmo- 
Malayasisun millionaire. 

Mr Lee gp 4 his associates 
bring with them the leases 
over two speculative gold min- 
ing prospects in Nevada. In 
return they wffl have a major- 
ity holding in Ctogan and with 
it a quotation on the Unlisted 
Sechrities Market. 

According to Mr ESQ Fos- 


By Richard Lander 

sick, Oogau's chairman, the 
Nevada leases offer the chance 
of a prosperous future — 
sosietfimg die Gogan mine 
itself amid not 

When mining re-opened 
there m 1983, there were 
hopes of extracting five otmees 
of gold a day. But just 40 
oances have since been hewn 
from the Welsh ground and 
the company's losses swelled 
to £1.1 million last year. 

Mr Fossick wifl now look at 
othernsesforthemue.iiidad- 
ing the possibility of giving ft a 
new lease of. life as a tourist 
attraction. 

“Fust of all we'd have to get 
permission from the Crown 
Estate Commissioners, who 
lease it to us for raining, and 
there may be pfenning prob- 


lems with the Snowdonia Na- 
tional Park,” he said. 

The first royal hand to be 
adorned by Clogan gold was 
that of the Queen Mother in 
1923. The same nugget also 
provided enough gold for the 
Qnee®, Princess 
Princess Anne and the 
cess of Wales. 

Fears that the Royal Family 
mfeht have to turn to another 
source of gold - perhaps even 
South Africa - for future 
weddings were allayed in 1981 
when the British Legion pre- 
sented the Queen with another 
36-gram bar of Gogan gold. 

This provided the material 
for the Duchess of York's ring 
earlier this year and should be 
enough for another two brides, 
according to Budrimhain 
Palace.

a £77 million takeover offer 
from Coalite. 

The forecast coincided with 
an announcement from 
Coalite which said it had 
received acceptances for 1.1 
per cent of Hargreaves shares 
at last Friday's first closing 
date to add to the 4.6 per cent 
it already owns. The offer has 
been extended to November 2. 

Hargreaves said it should be 
able to pay shareholders divi- 
dends or 7p in the year ending 
next March 31, compared 
with the 5.5p paid test 
ear.AIthough Hargreaves’ 
nancial year is past the half- 
way mark, it declined to make 
a profit forecast. However, the 
company said the outlook was 
encouraging. 

Although it 1ms received 
approaches from other parties 
since the Coalite bid was 
launched, Hargreaves wants 
to fight its predator unaided. 

Hargreaves closed 3p higher 
at 258p yesterday while the 
Coalite offer of £6 cash and 
one share for every four 
Hargreaves shares values its 
target at 216p. 


RTZ reduces 


Australian 
mining stake 


Rio Tinto-Zinc. the min- 
erals, industrial and energy 
group, has reduced its stake in 
CRA, the Australian mining 
company, from 52-3 per cent 
to 49 per cent by selling a large 
block of shares for Aus$ 122.8 
million (£543 million). 

RTZ sold the 16.4 million 
CRA shares to Australian 
Mutual Provident, a life assur- 
ance group, for Aus$730 each. 

The move will have im- 
portant effects on RTZ’s 
financial statements. 

CRA will in future be 
treated as an associate rather 
than a subsidiary, so that its 
debt will be removed from 
RTZ's balance sheet. 

This would reduce RTZ's 
gearing from 64 percent to 45 
percent. 

The exclusion of RTZ’s 
share of CRA’s depreciation 
figure will also increase its net 
earning by aboui £17 million 
a year. 

The sale completes an 
“AustralianizatiorT process 
agreed in 1978 with die Can- 
berra government. 


CBI demands £5bn 


programme of 
building projects 


By Edward Townsend 

Industrial Correspondent 

Britain’s employers yes- 
terday embarked on their 
third major attempt to con- 
vince the Government to 
spend up to £! billion a year 
over the next five years on big 
job-creating building and civil 
engineering projects. 

In advance of the autumn 
financial statement from Mr 
Nigel Lawson, the Chancellor, 
the Confederation of British 
Industry — under pressure 
from its members, particularly 
those in the north - has sent 
the Treasury a detailed analy- 
sis of its proposed spending 
plans. 

The CBI has told Mr 
Lawson its plans do, not 
jeopardize restrictions on pub- 
lic expenditure and, more 
importantly, do not on the 
lace of it imply any increase in 
inflation. 

Sir Terence Beckett, the 

CBTs director-general, said 

yesterday: “Increased spend- 
ing on communications, cou- 
pled with a big drive to clean 
up and restore inner city areas, 
as well as renewal, of the 
nation's ageing network of 
water mains and sewers, is 
needed to meet the economy's 
changing needs and to lake us 
into the 1990s.” 

In broad terms the CBI 
wants the Government to 
commit itself to annual spend- 
ing of £250 million on roads, 
£300 million on urban re- 
newal, £300 million on hous- 
ing and £50 million on sewers 
and water mains. 

Sir Terence said: “The CBI 
believes capital spending of 
this kind can be financed 
largely from savings in gov- 
ernment current spending and 
accommodated within the 
Government's existing finan- 
cial strategy. 

“We want to see the work 
pressed ahead to help to 
improve die competitiveness 
of trade and industry. For it is 
only by improving their 
competitiveness that firms 
can create real and lasting new 
jobs.” 

The latest CBI salvo on 
infrastructure spending re- 
flects growing concern among 
members about the north- 
south divide in Britain. 

In a politically-charged at- 
mosphere, with the next Gen- 
eral Election on most MPs’ 
minds, the CBI message also 





Sir Terence Beckett, director 
press conference yesterday 


of die CBI, at the 
iOtograph: Dod MOlar). 


indicates industry's thinking 
in preparation for the CBI 


preparation 
Budget presentation. 

This presentation,to be 
lodged with the Chancellor 
early in the new year, is certain 
to state business priorities 
beyond the short term in the 
hope that full, long-term 
advantage can be taken of 
lower oil prices and more 
buoyant world trade. 

Mr David Nickson, presi- 
dent of the CBL says in a 
foreword to the new report. 
Fabric of the Nation 111. 
Building a Better Britain: 
“Unless the Government 
takes the initiative now on 
certain capital projects we 
shall have lost our chance and 
slip further behind in the 
competitiveness league.” 

Since the publication of the 
CBPs last report on infrastruc- 
ture in November 1985, the 
Government has agreed to a 
second Severn bridge, the 
Channel tunnel, a third cross- 
ing of the Thames at Dartfoid 
and the completion of the 
M25. 

The CBI now wants £250 
million a year spent oh a new 
list of more than 1 00 road 
schemes, including the widen- 
ing of the M25, improvements 
to the M2 and M20 and to the 
A69 Newcastie-Car lisle route 


and the A30 Exeter-Penzance 
road. It also calls for rapid 
approval of a new Thames 
bridge at Reading and the east 
London river bridge. 

Money spent in inner cities, 
says the CBI, should include 
£100 million a year on 
estab lishing urban develop- 
ment agencies and a further 
£200 million a year on funding 
urban development grams 
and derelict land grants. 

It urges that more money 
should be made available for 
the building improvement 
programme to provide jobs 
for the long-term unemp- 
loyed. 

The CBI says that, in line 
with its support of the 
Government's drive to reduce 
inflation and the need to curb 
interest rates, its proposals fell 
well within the terms of the 
Government's medium-term 
financial strategy. 

The report says that better 
procurement policies and im- 
proved efficiency in the public 
sector could go a long way to 
funding additional expen- 
diture. There could also be 
sales of under utilized assets, 
greater use of perfonnance- 
related pay and improved co- 
operation between the public 
and private sectors.

1986 could be a record 
year for snirit sales 


Derek Harris, Industrial Editor 


, This year looks likely to be 
Lthe best for sales 6 f spirits 
since 1979 despite flagging 
demand earlier this year, 
according to the Wine and 
Spirit Association. And it xs 
possible there may be record 
sales. 

But imported spirits, par- 
ticularly cognac brandy, are 
doing best. Their volume sales 
in June were 5.3 per cent up, 
judged on the basis of moving 
annual totals, while home- 
produced spirits like whisky, 
gin and vodka were up by 4.1 
percent. 

The market share of the 
imported spirits, including 
rum. brandies and liqueurs, 
stood at 233 per cent in 1985, 
and this has increased to 23.4 
percent 

Mr Nick Gent, the assoc- 
iation's chairman, said: “The 
Christmas buying period is 
already under way and con- 
sumers appear to be relaxed 
about spending. The signs are 
set fair for a sales record to be 
set by the end of this year.” 

If there are record sales in 


1986 it would only be by a 
small margin compared with 
1979. the previous peak year 

for sales, Mr Gent said. 

Increased consumption ot 
liqueurs and lower-sirengtn 
spirits were among the 
changes having an impact on 
overall spirits sales, and the 
trend was likely to be at .its 

strongest during the pwk sate 

up to Christmas and the new 
year, he added. . . 

By fer the biggest increase m 

demand has been for cognac 
where the moving annual total 
in June, the latest month lor 
which returns are available, 
giowed a rise of 14.1 percent. 
Other brandies were up by 4.6 
per cent and rum by 5.3 per 
cent Other spirits, including 
liqueurs, rose by just under i 

percent . . 

Scotch whisky, whurh ac- 
counts fix’ just under half oi 
the spirits market, had a 
volume safes rise of 43 per 
cent On gin there was no 
change on the moving annual 
total although other figures 
sii gyst a jump of just over 14 


percent in volume safes in the 

second quarter of this year. 

Other home-produced spir- 
its. including vodka which 
tends to be or lower alcoholic 
strength than standard brands 
of whisky and gin, were up by 
7.7 per cent 

Comparisons of the fits 
half of this year with the same 
period last year show all spim 
sales down in volume by Zs 
per cent Imported varieties 
were down by 0.4 per cent and 
home-produced spirits by 3.L 

But in the second quart?, 
on annual comparison, these 
were increases not only in gfe 
sales but in those of cognac 
(up 133 per cent), other 
brandies (8.3 per cent) and 
rum (1,9 per cent). 

Earlier analyses have shown 
that sate of table wiws 
continue to improve although 
at a slower pace than a year 
ago. Fortified wines like pun 
and sherry are having a more 
difficult time. Beer sate m 
■barely holding their own al- 
though an increasing amount 
of lager is being drunk.

, data gives the . Chancellor 
- some leeway, because the 
market is predisposed to be- 
'Tieve what it is told. Changes 
‘ in the physical structure of tbe 
■market increase this 
independence. 

In a relatively elusive way, 
the gilts market's traditional 
. esprit de corps amounted to 
supporting the cashdndex 
relationship. The dose per- 
. . sonal nature of the trading 
“floor, the frequent presence of 
the Government Broker, and 
1 -the Bank of England's insis- 
' tence on certain standards of 
behaviour meant that drift 
from statistical reality could 
not continue indefinitely. 

Big Bang 

But Big Bang, now im- 
minent. has dispersed the 
familiar critical mass of talent 
in the market Old relation- 
ships have been broken up, 
and new alignments are still 
developing; In future, a large 
body of information, pres- 
ently freely available to die 
market through the trading 
floor, will simply cease to 
exist as the switch to a screens 
market accelerates. The po- 
sition of Whitehall and the 
Bank as monopoly suppliers 
of information, as well as 
credit will be strengthened. 

Bereft of the old lodestars, 
the City takes its bearings 
increasingly from the main 
cash variables - bond yields, 
money rates and the exchange 
rate. Here again, the Chan- 
cellor has got lucky. The 
context is international, and 
self-stabilizing dements exist 
within these markets irrespec- 
tive of the fundamentals. In- 
stitutional limits exist to curb 
monumental bear positions. 
Traders are afraid to be caught 
short, and they cover. 

In the mindless void of the 
new market, sterling can foil, 
dragging the gilts market 
down, or it can rise, pushing 
gilts suddenly better. 

Analysts’ logic

Official intervention on the foreign exchanges 


Central banks buy time but 
they cannot buck the trend

[ COMMENT Kenneth Fleetl 


Standard Chartered 
Bank in a comer 


By Dand Smith 

Economics Corr espondent 

Cenna] bank intervention in 
the foreign exchange markets 
has become the flavour of the 
month. The pound has been 
helped from complete disaster 
by some solid support from 
both the Bank of England and 
tbe Bundesbank. 

The dollar has been pre- 
vented from foiling too for 
since the inconclusive Group 
of Five meeting in Wash- 
ington at the end of last 
month. This has been ach- 
ieved through intervention by 
the central banks of Europe 
and Japan and, perhaps more 
importantly, by tbe threat of 
that intervention. 

Herr Karl Otto Poehl. the 
president of the Bundesbank, 
is to visit Downing Street next 
week, doubtless with some 
timely words for the Prime 
Minister about the virtues of 
intervention when set in tbe 
more formal framework of the 
European Monetary System. 

There has been a definite 
change in attitudes on central 
bank intervention. Even the 
Chancellor, Mr Nigel Lawson, 
who was dismissive of inter- 
vention on the “throwing 
good money after bad" view, 
has become a fin. 

So. after 13 years of wildly 
volatile floating exchange 
rates, has the secret of cur- 
rency stabilization been dis- 
covered? Can the leading 
economies fix their currencies 
simply by saying that they 
want to do so, and indulging 
in a little modest intervention 

It would be comforting if- 
this were so. But unfortu- 
nately it does not appear to be 
the case. Recent central bank 
intervention has to be looked 
at in context, beginning last 
year. 

In February I98S, with tbe 
dollar at the heady heights of 
3.45 against the mark, and the 
pound dose to unity against 
the US currency, there was a 
significant bout of official 
intervention. 

The dollar was pushed 
down by concerted and

powerful central bank sales of 
dollars. The exercise, led by 
the Bundesbank, included 
large and small European 
central banks, the Bank of 
Japan and tbe Federal Reserve 
Bank of New York, the US 
Treasury's agent in the foreign 
exchange markets. Some $1.5 
billion was spent in acouple of 
hours. 

It was highly successful In 
two hours, the dollar fell from 
DM3.45 to DM 3.27, a drop of 
5 per cent. The pound recov- 
ered from $1.04 to $1.10. ■ 

There were two elements in 
the Febniary 1985 interven- 
tion which contributed to its 
success The first was that all 
the major countries not only 
agreed with the intervention 
but took part in it 

The second key dement was 
the timing of the intervention.

How the bankers 
move markets 


How do central banks inter- 
vene in tbe foreign exchange 
markets? The Bank of En- 
gland has two broad methods, 
one open and the other slightly 
more subtle. 

When it wishes to intervene 
openly, tbe Bank contacts a 
currency broker and instructs 
the brokers to buy or sell 
sterling at a certain rate. 

The broker, in concluding a 
deal at this rate with a bank, is 
then permitted to disclose that 
the lfe»wlt of En gland is his 
dieat. In this way, word gets 
round the market 

When the Bank wants to 
keep its moves secret it will 
nse a number of banks to boy 
or sell in their own name bat 
on foe Bank of England's 
behalf. 

Each contract is a secret one 
and tbe Bank can call on a 

and February last year, tbe big 
central banks could have 
moved in to try to hit the 
dollar. Tbe strike, when it did 
lake place at the end of the 
February, was successful be- 
cause. by that time, the mar- 
kets themselves had decided 
that the dollar had peaked. 

The secret of successful 
intervention is therefore to. 
“lean with the wind,” in the 
language of the 1983 Jur- 
gensen report on currency 
intervention, submitted to the 
world economic summit in 
Williamsburg. Virginia, that 
year. 

Indeed, hitting a currency 
when it is already filling is the 
only way that official inter- 
vention can succeed for any 
length of time. 

With net foreign exchange 
turnover in London equiva- 
lent to $90 billion a day, and 
worldwide. $200 billion daily, 
the $1.5 billion spent in a 
single day to push the dollar 
down in February last year 
would nave been swam pal if 
it had been moving against tbe 
tide. 

The intervention story then 
moves on to September last 
year, and the historic agree- 
ment at the Plaza Hotel in 
New York. 

On September 22. sum- 
moned by the US Treasury 
Secretary, Mr James Baker, 
tbe Group of Five agreed that 
a further orderly appreciation 
of other currencies against the 
dollar was desirable, and that, 
to achieve this, further con- 


FUTURES AND OPTIONS 


Commodities clearing house 
faces up to 1990s challenge 


After cruising along for 
many years in stately fashion, 
the good ship International 
Commodities Clearing House 

Is about Co be taken into dry 
dock for a thorough Inspec- 
tion. Should it be deemed 
necessary, the finer may be 
stripped down and refitted and 
even undergo a ch a nge of 
ownership. 

The ICCH, like many other 
qnasi-monopolistic service 
companies, has found its func- 
tions and financial efficiency 
have come undo- increasingly 
close scrutiny from owners and 
customers in the mid-1980s. 

Its proprietors, in the form 
of six leading British ba n ks, 
want to make sure they get an 
adequate return on their 
investments. The clients, who 
number the major futures and 
options markets in London, 

Europe, Asia and Australasia 

and their mem bos, want theft 
trades executed, cleared and 
guaranteed in the most efficent 

Fashion and at the lowest 
possible cost _ 

The past year has s een a 
subtle increase in the pressure 
exerted on the ICCH to shape 
up for tbe next decade. Much 
of this has come from the 
exchang es which have bad to 
review theft own strategies, 
either because they were los- 
ing market share — as in the 
case of the sugar, cocoa and 
coffee markets belonging to 
tbe London Commodity Ex- 
change (LCE) - or, in tbe case 
of the London International 
financial Futures Exchange 
(Uffe), because they were 
expanding rapidly from a 
small base ~ and required a 
greater and (aster service from 
the ICCH. 

The. exchanges id tarn have 


Bleed a stronger lobbying voice 
from their members who have 

tended to trade more across a 
number of markets instead of 
specializing in a single group 
of commodities. 

While H became known that 
Uffe had been talking to other 
possible clearing organizat- 
ions, sack as tbe American 
Options Clearing Corpora- 
tion, the LCE put enough 
pressmeon ICCH to obtain an 
almost 50 per cent redaction in 
clearing charges which took 
effect at the be ginning of this 


Charges to the clearing 
members of exchanges now 
range between 7%p to 15p a lot 
compared with. 30p six years 
ago (and the equivalent of 
42 Wp in 1953 when the ICCH 
cleared for the gentlemen trad- 
ers of the wool and cocoa 
markets), a trend that has 
eaten into the organization's 
profits despite tbe increasing 
use of computers in its 
business. 

Against this background, 
the executives of the ICCH 
turned on tbe spotlight of self- 
criticism earlier this year to 
construct a strategic plan for 
the 1990s. 

To help carry this oat, they 
have- a new non-executive 
chairman in the shape of Mr 
John Barkshire. the head of 
the Mercantile House finan- 
cial services group, and a 
i»»Hing light in tiie establish- 
ment of Uffe four years ago. 

Mr Barkshire has wasted 
little tune in setting up an 
advisory committee of repre- 
sentatives from six major cus- 
tomer exchanges to draw up a 
blueprint for roe next decade. 

The ICCH that emerges 


from the committee's delibera- 
tions — which are to be 
paralleled by an outside study 
— might well be a new model 
organization. 

The brief is wide and in- 
cludes tbe possible separation | 
of its clearing ami guarantee 
functions and the transfer of 
ownership to the exchanges 
who would -ran it on a non- 
profit basis. 

Whether this latter pro- 
posal is acted upon or not, the 
ICCH wants to emerge as a 
body more responsive to the 
wishes of those who pay its 
way. The committee hopes to 
draw op some concrete plans j 
by early next year. 

Such is the state of flux in 
tbe markets it serves, the 
ICCH will have tittle opportu- 
nity for a second chance to get 
things right 

Late* this month, it will 
start servicing its first major , 
international link, when Uffe 
and the Sydney Futures Ex- 
change br eak out the cham- 
pagne on a fungible US 
Treasury Bond furores con- 
tract 

Next year it will have to 
cope with a range of traded 
Options aw tracts on tbe LCE 
aS well as an important new 
customer, the London Metal 
Exchange, which has been 
dragged to tbe clearing system 
altar by the Securities and 
Investments Board. 

To draw up a plan in tbe 
best interests of those two 
markets, the ICClTs other 
members and its banking own- 
ers wEU have Mr Barkshire

adage that it is impossible to 
please all tbe people, all the 
time.

network of 30-40 banks to 
avoid the suspicion that could 
arise if indmdoal transactions 
were too large. 

Other central banks use 
slightly different methods. 
Tbe Bundesbank, for example, 
may simply ring around the 
dealing desks of banks 
requesting quotes. It may or 
may not deal at the price 
offered, bat often tbe mere fact 
that tbe central bank is inquir- 
ing about prices is enough to 
create nervousness and tbe 
desired short-term currency 
move in tbe market. 

In tbe European Monetary 
System, central banks who 
intervene in support of cur- 
rencies other than their own 
will be refunded tbe cost of 
their support by tbe coontry 
concerned within a few 
months. 

certed intervention in the 
markets would be used. 

The effect of ibis announce- 
ment was. if anything, even 
more dramatic than the actual 
intervention in February. The 
dollar fell by 12 pfennigs 
against the mark and by 5 
cents against sterling, without 
any of the major countries 
having to dip into their 
reserves. 

The Plaza Agreement again 
fitted the’ requirements for 
successful intervention. There 
was dearly agreement among 
the participants on the correct 
course 'for the dollar and 
intervention, when n was 
subsequently used, leaned 
with the wind. 

In feci. Plaza has turned out 
to be less about intervention 
than monetary policy, with 
the Federal Reserve Board, 
under the chairmanship of Mr 
Paul Volcker. cutting the US 
discount rate to help the dollar 
down this year. 

This brings us to the 
present. There has been heavy 
intervention in the markets in 
the past few weeks. The Bank 
of England, with the proceeds 
of a $4 UDion floating rate 
note bolstering the reserves, 
has been supporting the 
pound more openly and for a 
longer period than for many 
years. 

The Bundesbank, the Bank 
of Japan and other central 
banks have been trying to 
preserve the dollar’s value at 
about two marks and above 
150 against the yen. 

There are good reasons. 


however, for thinking that, in 
the absence of other measures, 
current intervention in the 
foreign exchange markets will 
prove futile. 

The Bank of England's sup- 
port for the pound, which 
began in earnest last month, 
has foiled to prevent sterling 
from sliding. The sterling 
index, which stood at 71 at the 
beginning of September, was 
67.5 yesterday, a foil of 5 per 
cent 

Support for the pound may 
have bought time but the 
evidence, again from the 
Jurgensen report, is that inter- 
vention against trend - lean- 
ing against the wind — only 
works as a prelude to a policy 
change, such as entry into the 
European Monetary System 
or raising of interest rates. 

According to David Morri- 
son. currency economist at the 
broke rGoldman Sachs: "It has 

been tbe case through the 
floating rate era that central 
bank intervention of the lean- 
ing against the wind type has 
not reversed fundamental 
trends.*’ 

This is still the official 
British view. 

The Bank of England, in 
evidence to the Jurgensen 
working party, said : "Inter- 
vention is in any event un- 
likely to have any substantial 
or long lasting impact on the 
exchange rate unless com- 
bined with policy changes. 
And in practice the pursuit of 
exchange rate stability will 
rarely be the only aim of 
national authorities. 

“They will have other, pos- 
sibly conflicting, aims — a 
reflection of the many in- 
terests that have to be bal- 
anced within government 
policy. There may often, for 
example, be a choice between 
instability in the exchange rate 
and in domestic interest 
rates." 

Tbe same is true for the 
attempt by central banks out- 
side tiie United States to 
stabilize the dollar at present 
levels: an attempt which was 
already showing signs of strain 
yesterday. This looks doomed 

Intervention in 
support of 
the dollar lacks 
nnanimity 

to failure on three counts. 

First, h is leaning against 
the wind — the foreign ex- 
‘ change markets are not yet of 
the view, perhaps rightly, that 
the dollar has feller far 
enough. 

Second, it does not appear 
to be a prelude to policy 
changes. 

Finally, current interven- 
tion in support of the dollar 
lacks the unanimity char- 
acteristic of the successful 
central bank moves in the 
markets last year. As long as 
the US authorities stay out of 
any intervention in support of 
the dollar, its success will be 
limited. 

Intervention in tbe past 
weeks has had the effect of 
buying time, a precious 
commodity in the currency 
markets. But time could now 
be running out 


Standard Chartered Bank has been ihe 
subject of speculation and gossip 
almost all year, and there is no sign of 
the rumour machine running down. 
The bank's smaller shareholders must 
dearly hope that something more 
concrete will emerge from today's 
board meeting, the second meeting 
since the three big overseas sharehold- 
ers were made directors in August, 
after their part in fending off the bid 
from Lloyds. 

The motives and intentions of the 
three. Sir Yue-Kong Pao, Robert 
Holmes a Court and Tan Sri Khoo 
Teck Puat, are still unclear. Any belief 
that they were acting together was 
scotched last week when Mr Holmes a 
Court, who is by instinct a dealer, 
raised his stake from 8 per cent to 
more than 10 per cent, at a cost of 
about £22 million. The obvious 
interpretation of the move was that it 
gives him a stronger bargaining hand 
in today's meeting. The new directors 
together own 30 per cent of the bank. 

According to one theory, the three 
want to divide up the bank. Tbe 
problem with that is that they would 
almost certainly all want the same bit: 
the Far Eastern operations. Rumours 
from Hong Kong to the effect that 
Chartered Bank of Hong Kong was 
soon to be floated on the Crown 
colony's stock market, are consistent 
with Standard's policy, set out at the 
lime of the Lloyds* bid, of seeking 
Slock Exchange listings for several 
pans, of the group. It does not 
necessarily pressage a split up of the 
group. 

The theory that Standard wants to 
buy Exco International because Tan 
Sri Kftoo is a director of both 
companies, has commercial sense in 
as much as both companies are 
looking for partners to complement 
their operations. But it runs up against 


the O' Brien rules — the 10 per cent 
limit on bank holdings in money 
brokers that scuppered Exco’s pro- 
jected link with Morgan Grenfell 
earlier this year. 

Standard sources say the bank has 
no interest in Exco, but it may not be 
indifferent Alan Orsich, general man- 
ager of Standard's international op- 
erations, was chairman of the British 
Bankers Association committee 
which discussed the issue at ihe time. 
He pushed hard, without success, to 
have the O' Brien rules abolished. 

Meanwhile, Lloyds Bank is still 
sitting in the wings, watching and 
waiting. If Standard's three overseas 
directors merely want to make a turn 
on their holdings (they hold paper 
losses of about 50p a share) the 
simplest method would be to sell out 
to Lloyds, which would probably be 
willing to pay a tittle more than it 
offered last time. 

That must surely be what all the 
other Standard shareholders want, the 
great majority of whom accepted the 
Lloyds offer. They could, at one point 
in the bid, have received about 850p 
for their shares. Now they can obtain 
about £1 less and any scheme to split 
up the bank would almost certainly 
work against their interests. 

Nor is there any sign yet of 
Standard's new corporate plan, much 
touted during the Lloyds bid, being 
pul into effect, in jumping out of the 
frying pan into the fire to avoid 
Lloyds, Standard has lost much of its 
power to move. And it has so far yet to 
prove that all it has done has been in 
the interests of the majority of its 
shareholders. As directors, the over- 
seas trio now have a responsibility to 
all Standard's shareholders, not just to 
themselves. U will be interesting to see 
how they use it 


Star Chamber opens its doors 


After a week of Government pledges 
to spend more on this initiative and 
that at the Conservative Party Con- 
ference the market will be even more 
closely interested than usual in the 
labours of the Star Chamber which 
begins its work this week. 

The Star Chamber, like its original, 
is set up to dispense summary justice 
among the petitioners. But today the 
petitioners are the spending depart- 
ments of state pursuing tbeir public 
spending bids and the judge is the 
suitably grave and massive figure of 
Lord Whilelaw. 

Reading between the tines of the 
speeches in Bournemouth last week it 
does not look as though Lord 
Whitelaw and bis colleagues are going 
to be too much troubled by the 
Government's new commitments. 
Conference is naturally a time for 
making the biggest bang with the 
smallest buck. 

For instance the impressive list of 
new employment measures produced 
with such a flourish by Lord Young of 
Graffham, Secretary for Employment, 
last week is all already provided for in 
the Government's existing spending 
plans. There will be no net addition to 
total spending. 

Kenneth Baker's plans as Secretary 
of State for Education for 20 new 


secondary schools to be run directly 
by the Government rather than the 
local authorities will undoubtedly cost 
money in due course. But the alert 
listener will have noticed that the first 
of these is not due to open until 1988, 
probably beyond the first year of the 
present survey and the next election 
too. And to build up to a total of 20 
will lake several years. 

To say this is not to belittle the task 
facing the Star Chamber. To get 
anywhere near the Government's 
previously announced totals for pub- 
lic spending, confirmed by the Cabi- 
net in July, will be even more difficult 
this year than in the past. With £3.2 
billion already added to provision for 
local authority current spending next 
year the reserve is looking dan- 
gerously depleted at about £3 billion. 

Good cases will be made for 
additional spending on the Health 
Service and for realistic assumptions 
about the demand for social security 
payments. A less good case (bearing in 
mind the massive increase since 1979) 
will be made for higher spending on 
defence. 

If the reserve is not to be further de- 
pleted these can only be accom- 
modated by cuts elsewhere. Lord 
Whilelaw is facing a testing time.

New York (AP-Dow Jones) 
— Wall Street slipped in early 


expected a lighter day because 
of the doable holiday of Yom 
Klppnr and Cbtmnbis Day. 

The Dow Jones rndnstrial 
average was down 1.97 points 
at 1,791.20. 

The frUore of the summit in 


Iceland was expected to hit 
trading. 

Mr Hi 


Mr Hugh Johnson of First 
Albany Corp said: “The real 
reaction probably will not 
occur until Tuesday, bat it 
does cast a brt of a pall and 
could give a downward bias in 
an otherwise directionless

More boom than gloom 
in uncertain Hong Kong 


From David Bona via 
Hong Kong 

Hong Kong has once more 
astonished forecasters who ex- 
pected gloom and bankruptcy 
as a result of the Anglo- 
Chinese agreement that the 
territory should revert to full 
Chinese sovereignty in 1997. 

The economy is expected to 
expand by about 5.6 per cent 
this year! against the Gov- 
ernment's earlier estimate of 
4.5 per cent. Its gross national 
product last year grew by less 
than 1 per cem, but recovery 
and possibly another boom 
are anticipated this year. 

The healthy economic pic- 
ture is seen as the resuh of a 
surge in exports. 

The linking of the currency 
to the US dollar at just under 
HKS7.8 has stood die econ- 
omy in good stead in terms of 
stability and appreciation, de- 
spite political worries. - 

This is important during a 
period when some weaker 
banks have failed through bad 
lending policies, and inter- 
national investors are taking a 
hard look at the future of their 
money in Hong Kong. 

Inflation was down to 2.7 
per cent in the first half of this 
year but may rise to about 3.5 
per cent This is still low 
compared with the 5 per cent 
estimated in February. 

However. Mr Reis Jacobs, 
the Crown Colony's Financial 
Secretary, has said the econ-

re-exports is smaller than for 
direct domestic exports, bul 
this sector had still been 
marked down as an encourag- 
ing performer. 

The drop in demand is 
partly due to the Chinese 
Government’s efforts to cut 
back imports and close un- 
profitable enterprises. Peking 
has also complained of a loss 
of foreign exchange through 
careless ordering and un- 
authorized import of luxury 
goods. 

Sir Edward Youde. the 
Governor, struck an optimis- 
tic note on a visit to the US re- 
cently. He told an audience in 
California: "In the league 
table of international trader* 
we now rank thirteenth, ahead 
of dozens of economies with 
populations much larger than 
our 5.5 million." 

The Governor added that 
the property market, which 
was depressed throughout the 
negotiations between Britain 
and China on Hcnig Kong's 


future. had recove:

to business conditions is the

moment you need to know the 
manager to get in without a

Hutchison signs Chinese barter deal 


From Stephen Leather 
Hong Kong 

Hutchison Whampoa, the 
fonc 
rfucli; 


foreign exchange to bay ce- 
ment horn Hong Kong through 
a Hutchison subsidiary, Hut- 
chison China Trade. 


which has taken a 4.9 per oent 
stake in Pearson, the publish- 
ing group, yesterday an- 
nounced a barter agreement 
with China that has taken a 
year h) negotiate. 

Hutchison hopes it will be 
the first of a series of trading 
swaps with China. 

Hutchison is to buy Chinese 
coaL China will then use the 


Hutchison had to deal with 
host of Chinese bnreaacra- 
ies to reach the deal — 


including the State Planning 
" histry of 


Commission, the Ministry 
Foreign Economic Relations 
and Trade, the China National 
Coal Import and Export 
Corporation, the China Na- 
tional Minerals and Metals 
Import Export Corporation 


and the State Supply Bureau. 

The first shipment of 50,000 
tonnes of Chinese coal wfll 
arrive in Hong Kong before 
the end of the year, and more 
than 40,000 tonnes of bagged 
cement will be shipped to 
southern coastal cities in 
China. More coal-cement 
swaps will follow. 

A Hutchison spokesman 
said yesterday: “This counter- 
trade agreement s tumid open 
np many futur e opportunities 
for the Hutchison Whampoa 


group m structuring training 
and in vestment opportunities 
in China involving other 
products." 

China needs bartering deals 
to conserve much-needed for- 
eign exchange. 

In May the Chinese assis- 
tant Trade Minister, Zho 
Yotrian. said in the newspaper 
China Daily that bartering 
was an ideal way of trading 
with overseas companies *tin 
view of the shortage of hard 
currency in many countries".

Hopes of China telecom order 
lifts C&W and Plessey shares 

By Michael Clark and Carol Leonard I zap ~~ ■ ■ H about 3 per cent of the shan 


The stock market was buzz- 
yesterday 

that C able & Wireless and 
Ptessey, two of Britain’s big* 
gcst telecommunications 
goup. would be the first 
beneficiaries of the Queen's 
visit to China. 

Dealers claim that the two 
group s have been awaided a 
multHmillion pound deal by 
the Chinese government to 
build a new telephone system 

Shares of 
Cable & Wireless raced up 20p 

K * Mp V addin & more than 
tiUO million to the group's 
capitalization as one lead™ 
broker cleared the market-* 
place of shares. The price has 
now risen more than 3Qp in 
the past couple of days leaving 
jobbers short of stock. Dealers 

• BM Group, the 


which ts 64 par cent owned 
% C H Bearer, win more 
than satisfy City expecta- 
tions of £2 nuUnm profits 
when it unveils its year- 
ehd resoles today. Its shares 
finned 3p yesterday to 
218p. BM has acquisition de- 
signs on Blackwood 


also reported heavy turnover 
of the shares on the traded 
options market. Cable & 
Wireless is now trading 25p 
shy of its year’s high. 

The group was inundated 
with calls from anxious stock- 
brokers. Mr Ernest Potter, 
finance director, was playing 
down the rumours. He Said: 


LENDING 

RATES. 


ABN 

Adam & Company. 
BCCI 



We know of nothing that is 
going to have an impact on 
our business whatsoever.” 

Sr Eric Sharp, chairman of 
Cable & Wireless, is chairman 
of the Sino-Britisb Trade 
Council and is in China at the 
moment leading the British 
trade delegation. 

Plessey, which is already 
responsible for building the 
bulk of System X. British 
Telecom’s new generation of 
telephone exchanges, has been 
a dull market recently follow- 
ing GECs abortive bid earlier 
this year which was blocked by 
the Monopolies and Mergers 
Commission. Plessey firmed 
2p to I82p. 

The rest of the equity 
market started the new ac- 
count on a confident note as 
investors shrugged off fears 
about the oil price and the 
imminent rise in interest rates. 
However, turnover appeared 
thin although dealers are con- 
fident it wQJ improve over the 
next few days as the spare 
funds tied up m tbe TSB 
flotation find their way back 
into the market. 

The FT 30-share index 
ended tbe session 10.0 higher 
at 1,275.4, whUe the broader 
FT-SE 100 index advanced 
12.9 to 1,612.3- 

The steadier pound enabled 
gilts to finish with gains of up 
to £14. 

The partly-paid TSB shares . 
were the most actively traded 
stock of the day with dealers 
reporting good two-way busi- 
ness. The in si rations started 
buying early on when the 
shares fell 3Vip to 82p. They 
recovered to dose just a penny 
lower at 84fep. City experts 
expect the price to rally to- 
wards tbe end of the week, 
once most of the small stags 
have been shaken out and the 
institutions begin to buy in a 
way. 

e rest of the banking 
sector was dull. Those to 
move were Lloyds, a couple of 
pence easier at 4l2p and 
Midland, 3p higher at 537p. 

Most leaders improved on 
the day with HOC going up 
12p to 31 4p and PAO 8p to 
508p. Bine Code and Glaxo, 
which publishes its results 
later today, both gained 5p to 
touch 58 Ip and 940p respec- 
tively. and Asda firmed 4p to 

162p.

which will turn CRA into an 
associate rather than a subsid- 
iary in RTTs accounts. An- 
alysts estimate that this could 
add around £20 million to 
RTZ*s net profits because of 
CRA’s current cost depred- 
ation accounting policy. Its 
shares put on Sp to 71 7p and 
then fell back to a 3p drop at 
709p. 

Warafard Investments, the 
family-controlled property 
development company with a 
couple of key sites in the City, 
soared I OOp at one time before 
settling down to a 55p gain at 
825p. Talk is that a bid is on 
its way at £10 a share. 

Elsewhere in the property 
sector, Roseforagb gained lOp 
to 600p and Rush& Tonkins 
17pto 240p. 

Oils were nervous, awaiting 
news from the Opec meeting 
in Geneva. Most ended the 
day unchanged. Those to do 
otherwise were PefamoL up 
4p at 38p, Britofl up 3p at 
136p and 1C Gas down 5p at 
51 8p. 

Cons Gold, the mining fi- 
nance group, climbed 30p at 
one sta^ before settling at 


679p.a I7p rise, amid talk that 
it may bid or be bid for. This 
latest move in its share price 
comes despite a "take profits” 
circular published last week by 
Buckmasier & Moore, the 
broker. 

Marks and Spencer, often 
regarded as jewel in the high 
street crown, has been a dull 
market of late struggling 
around the 190p level. But 
analysts are convinced that 
better times are on (he way. 
Yesterday tbe price advanced 
8p to 198p — still way below 
hs peak of 227p — and is 
thought, at these levels, as 
cheap. 

Later today, the group is 
opening its latest prestige store 
at, the Metro Centre, Gates- 
head, which is being hailed as 
one of the most ambitious 
shopping centre develop- 
ments since Brent Cross. To- 
morrow, the group is throwing 
open its doors to a coachload 
of analysts from the City 
anxious to give the new store 
the once over. They might also 
try and glean something from 
M&S about its interim figures 
due out later this month. 

The group has enjoyed 
some brisk trade over the past 
couple of months and is 
expected to weigh in with 
pretax profits of £155 million 
for the six months to Septem- 
ber 30, compared with £137.7 
million for the corresponding 
period. 


Boots, the retail chemist, 
remains high on the list of 
likely takeover targets follow- 
ing a dull performance of late 
wnh the price expanding a 
further 5p to 236 p. The group 
makes no secret ofthe fact that 
it is on hs guard against 
possible unwanted predators. 

Lord Hanson's Hanson 
Trust is known to have bought 


about 3 per cent of the dares 
and may have been topping up 
his holding last week. Hanson 
may just be attracted -by the 
high level of assets at Boots, 
including a large properly 
portfolio, and will realize just 
how vulnerable the shares are . 
following the recent 
controversial acquisition of 
Flint Laboratories in the US. 

There is also plenty of 
activity in the shares on the 
traded options market where 
dealers have reported plenty 
of call option business. 

Meanwhile, there was also 
selective support for the rest of 
the retailers helped by a 
bullish circular on tbe sector 
from Wood Mackenzie, the 
broker, and highlighted in this 
column on Saturday. 

Wood Mackenzie expects 

• Dee Corp, the Fine Fare 
and International Stores food 
retailer, rase 3p to 21 8p af- 
ter last week's shakeout, 
which saw tbe price retreat 
from 235p- A line of 35 mil- 
lion shares (4 per cent) 
belonging to one institution 
had been overhanging tbe 
market. It was placed by 
James Capet, the broker, 
at about 216p. 

small investors to plough back 
most of their profits, amount- 
ing to around £100 million, 
from the flotation of the 
Trustee Savings Bank into the 
high street That should be 
good news for the big stores 
groups in the run-up to what 
promises to be another 
bumper Christmas. 


Mr Paul Ainstey, retail an 
afyst at Wood Mackenzie, 
thinks companies like Free- 
mans, up 8p at 428p, and 
Next 4p dearer at 237p, 
should benefit from the forth- 


coming spending spree. 


Mr Ainsley is also keen on 
Burton Group, I2p higher at 
278p, which is forming a new 
£100 million property com- 
pany to buy, develop and seH 
properties. The new company 
will still be controlled by

deal with £30 million of its 
own money. The remaining 
£70 million is being provided

BUSINESS AND FINANCE 


TEMPUS 


Bryant Holdings digs in 
to investors’ pockets 


Burton boasts a number of 


top stores mi prime sites. 


Shareholders should be 
pleased with the preliminary 
results announced today by 
the housebuilder Bryant Ho- 
ldings. Pretax profit for the 
year to May 31 was up 15.8 
per cent to £133 million on 
turnover up 30 per cent to 
£157 million. 

Without the five-fold jump 
in interest charges to £23 
million, the rise in profits 
would have been nearer 30 
per cent But to stay in 
business and ensure a suf- 
ficient land bank for develop- 
ments three or four years 
ahead, a housebuilding com- 
pany must keep buying land. 
And land prices have been 
rising steeply. 

Land costs have risen most 
in the South-east where Bry- 
ant, traditionally thought of 
as a Midlands builder, has 
been increasing its activities 
steadily. Its policy of expand- 
ing in the more prosperous 
areas while reducing its in- 
terests elsewhere is inevitably 
increasing the cost of main- 
taining its fend bank. 

As a result, year-end 
borrowings more tram dou- 
bled to £24 million. For a 
company used to a debt- 
equity ratio of about 17 per 
cenu it found itself at the end 
of last year with debt standing 
at 38 per cent of shareholders' 
fends. 

Compared with many 
companies inside and outside 
the building industry, 38 per 
cent gearing is far from 
alarming. But faced with the 
prospect of ever-rising 
borrowings If it were to 
attempt to maintain its land 
bank out of cash flow, Bryant 
has decided that the time is 
right to ask shareholders for 
£1 7.4 million, to be raised by 
way of a rights issue on tbe 
basis of one new share for 
every four held. 

The group is optimistic 
about tire prospects for this 
financial year. The summer 
was not ideal for builders, but 
the autumn has been ex- 
cellent and the level of for- 
ward sales is good. 

The company is not vary- 
ing tire number of houses 
built of about 2,000 a year but 
the average selling price has 
risen from less than £40.000 
in 1 984-5 to nearly £50,000 in 
1985-6. Part of this reflects 
the higher quality, but the 
company is also -improving 
its margins, a trend which is 
continuing this year. 


The rights money will help 
bring down .interest charges 
and the company should be 
able to make £16 million 
pretax in 1986-7. 

The prospective multiple 
of 10.8 is fair and reflects the 
company's property interests 
where the outlook beyond 
1987 is strong. The share 
price is underpinned by the 
5.3 per cent prospective yield. 

IBL 

The esoteric world of com- 
puter leasing must have 
caused a few institutions 
concern when they backed 
the flotation in June last year 
of IBL, one of the largest 
companies in the business. 

Many must have regrets. 
The shares, launched through 
a full offer for sale at I40p. 
have been down to 45p. after 
confirming the City's sus- 
picions That the sector is only 
for the brave. 

IBL's lapse from grace was 
principally due to taking its 
eye off the ball in France, 
where the local management 
took on large unprofitable 
business, leaving a deficit of 
£3.5 million and causing 
profits for fast year to slip 
from £73 million to £6 
million. 

The half-year figures show 
that remedial action is begin- 
ning to work. Pretax profits 
show a 48 per cent increase to 
£13 million and the interim 
dividend is being maintained 
at 0.4p a share. 

Thanks vo some tough 
management action, the 
French business is breaking 
even and should be back in 
the black by the end of the 
year, although there have 
been further write-offs of 
about £300,000. 

In the United Slates IBL is 
expecting a lot of new busi- 
ness in the second half. 

Overall, IBL has been 
concentrating on repeal busi- 
ness with existing clients 
where its position is stronger, 
rather than looking for cus- 
tomers in a market becoming 
increasingly competitive. 

The shares rose Sp to SSp- 
It will need a period of 
sustained progress to. see 
them go much higher. 

Avis Europe 

Trying harder has done great 
thing s for Avis. The business 
has come a long way since 
Warren Avis founded his first 


car rental counter at Willow 
Run Airport, Detroit, in 
1946. 

The group is a household 
name in the US. and the 
market leader in Europe. It is 
the European business which 
is coming to the market later 
this month. The issue, at 
around £270 million, is size- 
able and should be of special 
interest to European 
investors. 

There is to be a preferential 
allocation of shares to Euro 
pean institutions and the 
directors are off on a road 
show to Europe this week. 

Half of the £30 million of 
new money raised will pay for 
the 50 year royalty due to 
Avis Inc for trade mark and 
systems licences. The US 
parent will retain a 
shareholding of about 35 per 
cent, and it can end its 
licensing agreements if a 
competitor acquires more 
than 35 per cent of Avis 
Europe. 

Car rental in Europe is an 
established market thought to 
be worth around £1.2 billion 
a year. It is considered to 
have good growth potential. 
Although rented cars are 
increasingly employed for 
business and leisure, the fre- 
quency of use is still well 
below the level achieved in 
the US. 

Avis Europe hopes to build 
up a network of regular 
business customers. 

The use of Wizard, a 
computerized reservation 
system, has been crucial in 
maintaining a high level of 
customer service white keep- 
ing costs under control. 

Fleet leasing and manage- 
ment is a perfect match for 
the core car rental operation. 
This is is a growing pan of 
Avis Europe's business and is 
a likely area for acquisition. 

Avis Europe has a good 
record and an experienced 
management team. More- 
over. the kudos attached to 
gaining the services of Sir 
John Bern bridge as chairman 
should not be 
underestimated. 

When the full prospectus is 
published next week it is 
likely to reveal a price which 
will value the shares at a 
premium to the market of 
around 15 per cent. If this is 
indeed the case the issue 
should attract reasonable 
interest

IBM's profit fell b >- .27 per cent 

in its third financial quarter 
because of lower orders and 
shipments. The figures an- 
nounced iestentaV sha^® 
eamings of SI. 07 bill .on 
{about £738 million} down 
from $1.47 billion. Sales for 
ihe quarter rose2 per cent to 

$11.91 billion (£8.2 billion). 

IBM shares dropped 57 last 
week after the company an- 
nounced there would be utile 
improvement in sales over the 
next nine months. 

It is certainly not alone 
among . computor manufac- 
turers in suffering from a 
sluggish marketplace. But n 
feces two distinct and separate 
problems: fierce and success- 
fid competition from the mak- 
ers of cheap personal 
computers that are dones of 
IBM's and, in the area or 
larger computers, the success 
of a competitor. Digital 
Equipment, the world’s ihird- 
biggest computer company. 

Last .week IBM responded 
to both problems. The first 
was an agreement with the 
chip nmnufacTurcr Intel to., 
swap technology m a move ; 
widely interpreted as an at- . 
tempt by IBM - to • find a j 
breathing space against the ’ 
PC-compatible makers. 

The agree me nt will involve 
the companies in developing 
jointly designed, custom-buili 
chips. Custom-built _ chips 
could provide IBM with the 
means to produce a new range 
of personal computers ' that 


THE WEEK 


will be more aiiticult and 
expensive to copy. 

If IBM is not to give up the 
personal computer end of the 
market, such a policy could be 
necessary. Amstrad's PC 
compatible 1 51 2. for example, 
starts at under £500 and each 
model in the range is about 
half the price of an IBM. 

They are on test in several 
large companies in Britain and 
while corporate orders have 
yet to flood in, the tests are an 
indication that fears that the 
Amstrad image will prevent 
firms from switching from the 
established reputations of 
companies like IBM may be 
unfounded. 

In contrast with IBM, Dig- 
ital Equipment in August 
announced fourth-quarter 
eamings more, than double, 
giving a 38 per cent rise in 
profit for the financial year to 
the end of June. . 

While IBM is discussing 
reductions in its US workforce 
— 12,000 over the next two 
years — Digital is to recruit 
1,000 people in Britain alone 
during the next 12 months (see 
page 29). • 

IBM has suffered in the 
minicomputer market, .in 
particular, from a lack of 
compatibility between its own 
ranges where Digital’s Vax 
computers have been taking 
IBM customers. 

IBM's response last week 
was to announce a range of 
relatively inexpensive mid- 
site computers that can 
communicate with its main- 
frames, personal computers 
and one another. . 

The new range, the IBM

Videotex passport 
to all countries 


By Keith Hindley 
On Thursday the world’s first 
international videotex card 
that can turn any IBM or 
compatible personal com- 
puter into an open system will 
be launched in West Ger- 
many, according to chums by 
a group at the Technical 
University of Berlin. 

The Teles X+T Card 2 is 
said to make instant access to 
the markets of Japan, France, 
Australia, West Germany, the 
US and others just a few 
keystrokes away. ' 

In a demonstration in Ber- ' 
lin the company established 
contact with Britain's Presto! 
and France's videotex system, 
using the software that comes 
with the card to deal with 
system connections and dif- 
ferences in interfeces. 

Professor Sigram Schindler, 
the head of the design team, 
said: “There is currently no 
competitive product available 
and certainly nothing at all' at 
a price of just DM 500 (about 
080)." 

The Berlin group will have 
stolen a march on the Euro- 
pean and American computer 
houses if the claims for the 
new card are borne out. 

Leading manufacturers 
have been wrangling for years' 
about international standards 
for communications proce- 
dures and' only recently has 
any agreement, begun to 
emerge. 

The newxard could under- 
mine the neetfin certain fields 
for some of there agreements 
and al a price that astonishes . 
many UK companies. 

Dr.Schindler.daims lo have , 
achieved the ..impossible, by 
incorporating, much of .the 


interfacing in the hardware, 
rather than in the accompany- 
ing software package. 

The card makes use of four 
standard V24 serial interfaces, 
which can be used simulta- 
neously or independently of 
each other. It is designed for 
"hot-standby" use. 

When a connection foils, an 
alternative network is in- 
stantly sought and im- 
plemented. In effect, the card 
provides a series of gateways

□ In the second extract 
from his book. The Cult of 
Information *, published 
this week, Theodore 
Roszak* above, looks at 
the influence of computer 
power 

whom the inti cades of the 
computer can become an ob- 
session, if not an addiction; 
yd they play a crucial role in 
the history of the technology. 

They were the first to give 
themselves fully to the strange 
interplay between the h uman 
mind and its clever mechani- 
cal counterfeit That interplay 
deserves the careful attention 
of educators because it carries 
within it a hidden curriculum 
that, arrives in the classroom 
with the computer. 

Among the hackers, (me of 
the main attractions of the 


machine was the enthrallin g 
sense of power it gave its user, 
or rather its master. For one 
did not simply use a com- 
puter, one had to take intellec- 
tual control of it 

This was a complex ma- 
chine, an “embodiment of 
mind,” as Warren Mctulioch 

once described it, and it cookl 
easily elude effective applica- 
tion. Yet, even when it did so, 
its misbehaviour arose from 
some rigorously consistent 
extension of its programming 
that de m anded understand- 
ing. 

It was not like an auto- 
mobile, which would mal- 
function simply because a part 
wore out; its problems were 
not merely physical. They, 
could be corrected only by 
tracking the bug through the 
dense logic of the machine’s 
program. 

But if the hacker mastered 
that logic, he could bend the 
computer to his will. (“His” is 
historically correct here; nota- 
bly, nearly all the early hack- 
ers, like most hackers since, 
were male, many of them 
living in “bachelor mode”.) 

As one computer genius 
reported to Steven Levy, who 
has written the best history of 
the early hackers, there was a 
day when be came to the 
“sudden realization” that “the 
computer wasn't so smart at 
all. it was just some dumb 
beast, following orders, doing 
what you told it to in exactly 
the order you determined. 
You could control h. You 
could be God.” 

But the satisfaction of 
becoming the machine's god, 
of lowering it to the status of a 
“dumb besot”, is not available 
to everyone; only to those who 
can outsmart the smart ma- 
chine. First it has to be 
respected as an uncanny sort 
of mind, one that can perform 
many mental tricks better 
than its user. 

The relationship of the hu- 
man being to the machine is, 
thus, an ambivalent one, a 
complex mixture of sensed 
inferiority and the need to 
dominate, of dependence and 
mastery. 



For a better-paid future, put 
yourself in consultancy mode 


Man and modern machine: will it ultimately have an 
intelligence beyond man’s? 


“Like Aladdin's lamp, you 
could get it to do your 
bidding.” That is how Levy 
describes a certain exhilarat- 
ing moment of truth in the 
early hackers’ encounter with 
the computer. But like 
Aladdin's lamp, the machine 
holds a genie more powerful 
than the human being who 
temporarily commands its 
obedience. 

The word power is freely 
sprinkled through the lit- 
erature of computers. The 
computer is a “powerful tool”; 
it is fuelled by “powerful 
theories” and “powerful 
ideas”. “Computers are not 
good or bad,” Sherry Turkle 
concludes in her study of the 
psychology of young com- 
puter users. “They are 
powerful.” 


As we have seen, computer 
scientists have been willing to 
exaggerate that power to 
superhuman, even god-like, 
dimensions. Perhaps it will 
soon be “an intelligence be- 
yond man's”. 

These heady speculations 
on the pan of respected 
authorities are not simply 
whimsical diversions; they are 
images and aspirations that 
weave themselves into the 
folklore of the computer and 
become embedded in the 
priorities that guide its 
development

In the world of information technology, 
how can you best change jobs without 
changing jobs? The answer must be to 
become a consultant — rt is often seen as 
one of the few ways to have a career with 
stimulus and challenge while working 
with or at a variety of different 
companies. 

By definition, consultancy conveys the 
impression of knowledgable advice, 
something with which the computer 
industry has been keen to identify.You 
can now be a sales consultant, software 
or hardware consultant, systems oi 
communications consultant and more. 
Whether or not you are a real consultant 
is another matter. 

In recent years information technol- 
ogy has been playing a greaxer role in the 
affairs of many companies. This has 
created many opportunities for da la- 
processing people who have an under- 
standing of particular computer subjects 
as wen as an outlying grasp of business 
affairs-The computer industry, ever 
quick to recognize opportunities, in the 
1970s formed a new generation of 
consultants all eager to capitalize on 
their knowledge of information technol- 
ogy and often at the expense of 
established management consultants. 

Computer-services companies 
increasingly broke into the domain of 
corporaie^evel consultancy to assist 
organizations eager to computerize. Due 
to the financial aspects and implications , 
of computer-based accounting, the 
accountancy profession was also eager to 
become involved in computing, thus 
extending its own consultancy roles. 
Similarly, engineering consultants found 
computer techniques creeping into their 
areas of activity. 

But it soon became obvious that in- 
depth understanding of computers with- 
out substantial business, management or 
accountancy knowledge, was not 
eno ugh .M anagement consultants them- 
selves need to get to grips with informa- 
tion technology, while engineers have to 
grasp the potential integration of com- 
puter-based accounting and administra- 
tion with engineering and manufacturing 
operations. 

The result of this in recent years has 
been to shift the emphasis of corporate- 
organizational advice into a higher gear, 
demanding greater-lhan-ever expertise, 
professionalism and across-the-board 
experience of those who call themselves 
consultants. 

The fulcrum of this shift is informa- 
tion technology, moving ahead at such a 
pace that companies tug and small are 
crying out for professional advice mid 
help. Salaries start high and go ever 
upwards for those who have whai it 


takes. It is still -a boom time fen- the 
consultancy profession. 

Key indicators to career opportunities 
include a Computing Services Associ- 
ation survey which shows that 83 per 
cent of the CSA’s 25 member firms 
offering consultancy, independent of 
other computing services, expect rapid 
real growth in consulting to continue at 
20 per cent a year or more. The 27 
member-firms of the Management 
Consultants Association - for a con- 
sultancy to be a member 90 per cent of its 
consultants must have recognized 
qualifications approved by the Associ- 
ation - reported a 40 percent growth in 
the UK consultancy Iasi year. 

More than 8,000 clients generated 
£142 million in consultancy fees for 
MCA members in 1985, with informa- 
tion technology accounting for £34,5 
million. 

Today it is believed that 35 percent of 
all management-consultancy fees are for 
work on information technology and it is 
growing annually. It is estimated that 
between 800 and 1,000 new consultants 

• ( JOBSCENE ) 

By Eddie Coulter 

will be required in the next year, most 
with computer orientation. 

But while the demand for consultants 
increases, so too do the number of people 
who want to make consultancy a career. 
Of the roughly 1,000 honours graduates 
who applied for jobs in consultancy 
companies last year, one in 27 was 
accepted. 

Even experienced professional people 
have to be good to achieve the move into 
the ranks of management consultants. In 
one company, calling for professionals of 
at least five years’ experience with an 
MBA to their name, applications were 30 
times over-subscribed 
So what attributes does a consultant 
need to enter this lucrative market in 
which some specialists advising on 
technology for Big Bang are said to be 
earning £100,000 a year? 

Some applicants with good degrees 
from a top university may be able to start 
off in a consultancy firm. And they could 
earn £15,000 a year direct from 
university. 

However, they will have to take 
specialization, such as accountancy or 
computer discipline, as well as notching 
up a few years’ practical business 
involvement before moving ahead to 
become a real consultant 
As experience grows, the opportunities 
to become a consultant improve. 


Twenty-eight to 38 year-olds with good 
degrees can expea to earn up to £25,000 
a year when they start in consultancy. 

They will, however, have to show up 
to five years’ experience in applying, say, 
computer-based skills in IT strategy, 
network planning, office automation or 
design methodologies. 

Across-the-board experience becomes 
ever-imponani for those consultancy 
candidates who are older fin their ^ 40s) or 
seeking to move up the ladder ot 
management within consultancy and 
salaries of £35,000 a year and beyond 

Additionally, consultants must have 
practical specialization at depth in arsis 
such as corporate policy,' financial 
management, marketing, production, 
human resources, management sciences 
and technology management. 

Wide-ranging expertise including 
information technology is important, 
explains Brian O’Rourke of the Manage- 
ment Consultants Association. He said: 
“Computers fit within the organisational 
structure and decisions on information 
must be taken as part of management's 
overall needs.” 

An enhancement to a consultants 
qualification is admission to the 
membership of the Institute of Manage- 
ment Consultants - 

Greater recognition of the role of 
information technology in consultancy, 
as seen by the institute over the years, 
has served to distinguish the “tunnelled- 
vision” singular disciplined computer 
consultants from the professional 
management consultants specializing in 
technology. 

Indeed a number of pure manage- 
ment-consultancy firms are now mem- 
bers of the Computing Services 
Association, as are some of the top 
accountancy firms who have created 
management and computer-consultancy 
divisions. 

Alongside these arc the computer- 
services companies, who also offer 
consultancy - from specialization in a 
specific IT discipline to the higher 
echelons of management consultancy. 

Andrew Davies of the management- 
consultants division at Touche Ross 
says:“There is an increasing trend for 
senior members of the computer in- 
dustry to move over to high-level 
management consultancy.”

More jobs 
in services 


■ Firms dealing in computer sendees 
increased their staff by an average of 11 per 
cent last year, according to figures from 
the Computing Services Association (CSA). 
But shortages of sidled staff are still the 
prime factor In Smiting growth, it says. 

Turnover for members of the CSA has 
grown by 23 per cent to £1 ,484 minion for 
the year aiding in June 1 986, while 
average revenue per employee has 
increased from £33.600 to £37,700. 

Doug Eyetons, director-general of the 
CSA, said he was encouraged by the figures 
"because they show that foe problems 
affecting the hardware industry have not 
been passed on to the computing 
services business". . 


Small exemptions 


r 


■ Small businesses should be exempt 
from parts of the Data Protection Act, says 
the Institute of Chattered Accountants. A 
memorandum sent to the Home Secretary, 
Douglas Hurd, eartter this month 
criticizes what is described as the 
complexity, ineffectiveness, 
administrative cost and burden of 
registering under the Act 

On complexity, the memorandum says: 
“Because the registration requirements are 
difficult to understand and to implement 
large numbers of data users view the Data 
Protection Act with apathy and wiU 
.probably not register at aft unless and until 
the registrar forces them." 

Training watchdog 

■ A new watchdog for training 
courses In information technology has 
produced its first register of 
accredited training establishments. The 
group, formed by the British Council 
and seven other computer-related 


( COMPUTER BRIEFING ) dona tions rotated to the size oTSefltorior 

uiaH ae cwtnmnl fiwtH Mnlwn 


organizations, was set up after 
complaints, especially from foreign 
students about the quafity of some of 
the private firms that offer computer 
training courses. 

The register lists the 16 training 
institutions which have currently agreed 
to conform to a code of practice 
specified by the Information Technology 
Training Accrwfitatfon Council. 

The code covers such areas as 
misleading advertising, the use of 
testimonials, written by a staff 
members or relatives, and the rights to 
refunds. An expanded register is 
expected to be published next stamner. 

Chip aid 

■ A charity to be funded by the 
computer industry has been formed by a 
group of senior executives to help the 
disabled benefit from information 
technology. Called Humanitec, it hopes

Upmarket hard discs 

■ WhHe the low end of the PC market 
becomes increasingly populated by cut- 
price "box-shifting manufacturers, so 
the add-ons for the basic PC become more 
and more a commodity business. 

One of the principle such add-ons is the 
hard disc mass storage device, which can 
typically give a computer up to 50 or 60 
times the amount of storage ft normally 
offers. 

One pioneer was a Scottish 
manufacturer, Rocfime, which is to move 
upmarket with two high-capacrty, hard- 
disc units to match the speed and 
performance of new computer processor 
such as the Intel 80386 and the Motorola 
68030. 

The first is a 3fcfn. hard-disc unit offering 
between 40 and 50 Megabytes of storage- 
more than 100 times that amount on a 
standard 360K computer floppy disc. The 
second is a 674 Megabyte 8in. hard (fisc.

Behind all the talk of cheaper 
chips and felling hardware 
prices is a whole new industry 
providing the design tools for 
more complex yet affordable 
electronic systems and 
components. 

Dubbed computer aided en- 
gineering (CAE), it is startling 
both in its growth rate and the 
feet that it is dominated by 
three companies virtually un- 
known outside the electronic 
design community. 

For the last five years, Daisy 
Systems, Mentor Graphics 
and Valid Logic, new com- 
panies in the US, have bad 
such meteoric growth that 
they have been nicknamed the 
big little three and are com- 
monly referred to by their 
peers as simply, DMV. 

Despite expectations that 
much bigger companies — 
Tektronix. IBM, Hewlett- 
Packard and Intergraph in . 
particular — will cash in on 
this lucrative sector, DMV 
have so far gone more or less 

unchallenged. 

Both Daisy and Mentor 
reflect the state of a market 
that grew. 300 per cent in 1 984, 
and which, though it has been 
hit to some extent by the 
general downturn in the 
electronics and computer 
trades, is expected to generate 
sales of $698 million this year, 
rising to $1,454 million in 
1990. 

The market really began 
only in 1981, yet last year 
Daisy and Mentor had sales of 
S123 million and $130 million 
respectively. Valid is third at 
565. 

A year or two ago all three 
were looking over their shoul- 
ders at potential attackers, but 
with their leadership still un- 
disputed, they are growing in 
confidence, believe that it is 
becoming hander and harder 
for anyone to catch up. 

The business really began 
when two researchers at the 
University ofStanford saw the 
potential of drawing elec- 
tronic-circuit schematics on a 


( GRAPHICS ) 

By Peter Simmons 

computer screen such that it 
had a meaning — that is, so 
that it could be communicated 
to underlying programmes 
that would simulate the even- 
tual behaviour of the circuit, 
check for bugs and so on. 

So the idea of electronic 
design automation, or Com- 
puter Aided Engineering, was 



UK boss, Peter 
Harverson: company not 
ripe for takeover 

born. It was these researchers, 
Kurt Widdoes and Tom 
McWilliams, who founded 
Valid. The research was in the 
public domain, yet only the 
three companies were able to 
pick up and run with it 
The need for their products 
is not likely to go away. They 
provide tools that are used to 
translate a product concept 
into a functional circuit, 
whether it is an integrated 
circuit or complete system 
mounted on a printed-circuit 
board. 

There are several factors 
behind the demand. As de- ’ 
vices become smaller and 
more complex, the old manual ' 
design techniques become less 
effective and less efficient and 
as product life cycles become 
shorter, design phases and 
market nave to be 


tune, to 


squeezed to their lowest pos- 
sible limits. Users of high-tech 
products become more 
discerning and quality is at a 
premium. 

All three companies offer a 
powerful range of tools for the 
definition, analysis, debug- 
ging, checking and physical 
layout of electronic systems 
and circuits, with links to the 
manufacturing and test pro- 
cesses. They hire customers 
with prospect of fast design 
and “right-first-time” designs 
without the hassles of repeated 
pro to typing. Where they have 
traditionally differed has been 
in the choice of 
manufacturers’ hardware. 

Daisy began with its own 
proprietary workstations, but 
has subsequently added IBM 
PC and Vax versions of its 
design systems. Mentor has 
always supported Apollo 
workstations but seems likely 
to announce support for Vax 
and IBM, too. 

Though Valid also started 
out with proprietary hard- 
ware, it had the foresight to 
opt for industry standards, 
such as the Unix operating 
system and Ethernet local area 
networking form the start It 
now has the pleasure of seeing 
almost everyone else adopting 
them in some form or another. 
Valid also offers systems 
based on the PC AT and the 
DEC Micro vax IL 

Even these rising young 
stars, however, have suffered 
from' the vagaries of the 
electronic and computer 
marketplaces. Mentor’s earn- 
ings fell last year, mainly 
because it had expected sales 
of$l8Q million rather than the 
Si 30 million actually 
achieved. 

Daisy, meanwhile, has been 
through the wars. After beady 
300 per cent growth in sales in 
1981 it hit trouble with two 
consecutive loss making quar- 
ters (his year. Its first- lay-offs 
and the sudden departure of 
its charismatic co-founder and

the high-lechnology rat race 
and pursuing a gentler ex is-,

programmer 14-years ago and 
increased her workload as her 
children grew older. 

She is now general manager 
of a unit employing ISO offsite 
workers ' who specialize kt 
software development and 
customer applications. 

She said: “My people are ail

F. International is installing 
a company-wide communica- 
tions network. So for. more 
than 1 00 managers who are 
directly employed ' by the 
organization can now commu- 
nicate - with One another

Next year the network win 
begin to-be extended to the 
sen-employed members, al- 
though it has not yet been 
decided whether they will boy 
their own compntersarrent 
. them from F. International. 

Despite the public image of 
the networker beavering away 
at the keyboard, it is only j 
relatively recently that com- 
puter homeworkers have 
needed their own terminals. 

' Previously, they were able 
lo work out programs on 
paper and test them during 
visits to the client’s own 
Computer. The arrival of the 
cheap micro and the develop- 
ment of fourth-generation 
productivity aids is making 
this approach seem primitive. 

Software now exists which 
allows a program written on a 
micro to be used on a PC or a 
mainframe. It can then be 
tested by making computer to 
computer contact by tele- 
phone line. 

This means fewer visits wiH 
have to be made to the client 
and in turn will add to the 
isolation of the networker. 

Loneliness is. already rec- 
ognized as a problem and both 
ICL and F. International 
make a point of getting 
homeworkers together. This 
win be even more important 
when workers are no longer 
dealing with a voice at the end 
of the phone, but an anony- 
mous subscriber to the elec- 
tronic mailbox.

ence for those wanting to 
become networkers.

him. 

There is nothing amateurish' 
about the way he and his 
colleagues operate. Indeed the 
three leading employers of 
such networkers - ICL Rank 
Xerox and F. Internationa] — 
all say they are keen to expand 
their workforce. 


NETWORKERS 

By Ann Kent 


Mr Townsend is officially a 
part-time employee of ICL 
contracted to do 30 hours 
work a week and entitled to 
the usual holiday and pen- 
sions benefits.. He works from 
a spare bedroom, generally 
using a PC which allows him 
to network with clients all 
over Britain. 

Like most networkers he 
stresses that one of the great 
charms ofthe job is its variety. 
One day he may be linked 


hobby. Because the industry 
moves so quickly, it can be 
difficult for people working 
completely on their own to 
keep up to date with 
developments. 

“Computer consultants 
who have freelanced come to 
work for us because we can 
offer them training courses 
and career - development. 
There are tremendous advan-. 
tages for women who become 
offsite workers because they 
can move to other parts of the 
country when their husbands 
change jobs without damaging 
their own careers." 

Rank Xerox has a different 
system. Horrified by the 
escalating costs of office space, 
the company looked for ways 
to cut overheads while retain- 
ing the skills of highly trained 
staff. 

It came up with a formula 
whereby it provided free ma- 
chines on loan and a guar- 



Phil Judkins: not just about saving money on office space 


with a water-board computer anteed amount of work, to be 


ISO miles away, the next 
working out programs to en- 
able people to buy their homes 
from the council, or thinking 
up a stock-control system fora 
diesel-engine manufacturer. 

“I thoroughly recommend 
this way of working," he said. 
“The cost of living is lower 
here and so 30 hours a week is 


carried out on a contract basis. 
The former employees then 
left their jobs and formed their 
own computer consultancy 
businesses. 

Phil Judkins, who heads 
management services at Rank 
Xerox, said: "ft wasn't just 
about saving money on office 
space. With an increasingly 


the scheme, with one or two 
new ones joining each month. 
I turn down one application in 
two. Not everyone has the 
resilience to be self-employed 
in this way." 

“Our networkers slay with 
us and we regard this as a 
successful experiment.” 

While ICL’s offsite workers 
provide services for ICL cli- 
ents. Mr Judkins's outworkers 
mainly look for ways of 
promoting Xerox interests. 

Market research, the defin- 
ing of new overseas markets 
and activities, recruitment ad- 
vice, public-relations work 
and financial analysis are 
increasingly provided by peo- 
ple working for themselves 
from home. 

The biggest employer of 


Home workers operate in 
teams under the guidance of a 
project manager and work on 
a contract basis at an hourly 
rate. Their spokeswoman, 
Rosie Symons, said: “Flexibil- 
ity is what home-working is all 
abouL All the jobs are es- 
timated and planned, so peo- 
ple can arrange their child- 
minding well in advance. 

“By working-, with us, 
women keep their skills alive, 
and that is particularly im- 
portant in computing which is 
so short of good people. Home 
workers are paid pro rata the- 
same kind of money they 
would get if they were . 
employees. 


“However, many people 
like the freedom they get from

‘A poor use is reported in tersely roiai areas 


play games on the system 


The results of an inquiry into the use of the 

French viewdata system reveal that oji average. 

only half the terminals are used to access even 
the most basic of services. 

The report, published by - the A ssociation 
Francaise deTetematique (AFTELK provides 
some useful insights into French public 
artiiwtes towards Minitel and TekrteL It sets 
some of foe wilder claims about foe system's 
success in some kind of context, and no doubt 
pleases British Telecom whose Prestej 
viewdata servie is often compared 
unfavourably to the French. _ 

More than two million Minitel terminals 
have been distributed free to users in widely 
differing parts of France. Intended first as an 
eiertronic replacement for the bard-oopy 
phone directory, three dial-up gateways into 
foe Tdetel network have been provided.

reflecting different charging methods, which 
together allow access to 1,600 on-tine services. 

The enormous growth in the number of 
terminals available for use and the consequent 
burgeoning of information providers to users 
of those terminals has meant, paradoxically, 
that little up-to-date information has been 
available on who uses the networks, and for 
whaL 

The first observation of the report was that 
out ofthe 1,000 people surveyed possessing a 
terminal, only one third made regular use of 
mainstream services — excluding, the elec- 
tronic phone book service.* Two hundred 
others used the terminal only to look up phone 
numbers on the-**unnuairc electron ique". 

Of those who use m ain s tre am videotex 
services, half consulted them at least once a 
week and 19 per cedt every day. Two 


contrasting types of behaviour emerge: the 
small group of dedicated users and the laige 
group of occasional users. Figures for regular 
use are substantially below the national 
population of terminals. 

For comp a ri so n. Britain's Ptestd service 
daims an averag: of 67,000 terminals. While 
there is no comparable information on Prestel 
use. the cist of the UK terminal alone would 
give a much higher number of regular users as 
a proportion of terminals attached. 

The two contrasting types of user behaviour 
correspond to different demands made of the 
French .system by users. Dedicated users 
tended tospend much of their time connected 
to games services or electronic messaging

While etertronic.incssagiag for the minority 
occupies much of the Tetetet network's 
activity, it is the majority of users and their 
needs which the report concludes will shape 
thefoiure form of ifcifoiiSfilr* V 
. These tendencies shouttabo allow thetrpe 
features of value of teleservices to emerge: 
avoiding wasted tune: avoiding problems in 
business transactions — financial, booking 
ordering serviced In foort, making tifocasier 
for the urban professional.

principal TSO, is in charge and is a 
specialist bulk-fuel officer. 

Assisted by a technical officer, he Was 
verifying ihe meter on the trader from a 
mobile-testing vehicle used to check 
quantities of gas, oil and kerosene. 

Kent , verifies, meters for otto* coun- 
ties, loo. and it can tak e two or three days 
to check just one. The procedure 
involves pumping liquid from a storage 
tank through the meter into a proving 


Errors are determined at various rates of 
flow. 

When not so engaged, Mr Clark works 
as an investigating officer on cars 
suspected of having been “docked” 
(having their odometers set back) and on 
tyre safety.' All tyres are marked to show 
their speed and, load capability, and 
retreads in particular are often found to 
be severely wanting. ' 

At the calibration centre (here is a six- 
monthly comparison of the working 
standard* carried out by officers against 
local standards held by the centre. The 
tolerances allowed are minute, say, the 
weight of six postage stamps on a 561b 


bag of potatoes. The electronic compar- 
ator can weigh infinitesimal amounts, 
and show the' difference in weight 
between a piece of paper and that paper 
with initials scribbled on ft. 

On our return to Tunbridge Wells, we 
stopped- to inspect the site for a petrol 
station. Trading standards officers have 
enforcement powers tinder so many Acts 
. that they tend to serialize and Mr 
Edwards is foe petroleum specialist for 
Mid Kent. 

He had previously been called out by 
one of his officers whowas unhappy-with 
the way in which the sides of the hote ex- 
cavated for. the petroleum spirits 
were subsiding! One of the duties of 
■ trading standards is to license garages 
: arid approve their construction, - 

At Tunbridge Wells the staff had 
assembled a number of couwerfen rally 
Jackets, with logos purporting to be those 
of BMW. Jaguar and Mercedes Benz. 
These had been seized in Thabridge. 
from one of foe many traders who attend 
race meetings at Brands Hatch, where 
trading standards license foe storage of 
fuel for motor racing. Prosecutions 
would be initiated under foe Trades 
Descriptions Act. 

In a single day one can experience only 
.a fraction of the wide variety of work 
' undertaken by training standards offi-

the enforcement of animal health laws, 
and the safeguarding of this country 
from rabies. Bufaheady it is dear that af- 

Meeting people and the 
ability to assess and 
to draw conclusions

be pure academics.

their eyes open and undertake practical

Bad times are a 

thing of the 

past at Telford 


Those who go to high places 
have a broad; view. That 
axiom is tendentious. For 
selfish reasons I want the 
Lawn Tennis Association to 
remember. — when discussing 
the location of new ■ tour- 
naments or tournament facil- 
ities - that for the good of the 
soul these should be handy for 
wild, high moorland (nothing 
under 1,500 feet will do) 
where anybody who knows 
what is what in the way of a 
good life can smoke a contem- 
plative pipe amid heather and 
douds and silence. 

This shaft of wisdom 
emerged last weekend, in ex- 
actly those circumstances, af- 
ter a morning's walk of 
astounding beauty — up Cal- 
low Hollow u> the Heights of 
Long Mynd- Callow Hollow is 
a long, secluded valley re- 
nowned for hawthorns, a di- 
versity of birds, a musical 
stream, and bracken now 
crisply dressed in the browns 
of autumn. Even the sheep 
look smug. They got lucky in 
life’s lottery. 

Long Mynd and the cuisine 
of an isolated hotel set among 
steep woodland — the hotel in 
which the muscular new hero 
of British tennis, Stuart Bale, 
fortified the inner man last 
week — are among the periph- 
eral pleasures of the Refuge 
Assurance national 

championships, played at the 
Telford Racquet and Fitness 
Centre. The coy anachronism 
“racquet” is prevalent among 
Britain’s new indoor centres, 
because it is thought that the 
modem spelling would hint at 


don't think this place was 
commercially viable in the 
: way it was set up and fiinded. 
It could never exist just as a 
rackets centre. It had to be an 
all-purpose amenity. And we 
need big events." 

Owned by Telford Develop- 
ment Corporation, the failing 
centre was leased to a group of 
companies whose chairman, 
Brian Gray, is a hard-headed 
businessman. Jackson, ap- 
pointed in September. 1984, 
was a PE teacher who became 
a high flyer. He spent 16 years 
in the RAF, much of the time 
in' charge of their parachute 
display team. Latterly he was 
an instructor with the Special 
Air Service. 

One has to be impressed 
when a man who has told the 
SAS what to do insists that, as 
his next chore, he could not 
have had a bigger challenge 
than making the Telford 
Centre the success it is now. 
But Jackson stresses that the 
Telford formula would not 
necessarily work at centres 
located in markedly different 
areas. 

It used to take days — and 
cost about £10.000 - to hire 
temporary seating and get it in 
and out of the place for the 
Refuge event “This was just a 
playing venue,” Jackson says. 
“To turn it into a spectator 
venue we needed our own 
seats. They cost about 
£160.000. The beauty is the 
flexibility. We have 20 blocks 
of 100 seats each and can cater 
for everything from minor 
events to Davis Cup ties. 
Every bank of seats weighs 





The Telford venture was 
launched in 1983 but went 
into receivership a year later. 
The present general manager, 
Alec Jackson, suspects that the 
place was going downhill from 
the day it opened. “The 
impression among many 
locals.” he says, “was that in 
Telford such an elitist dub 
wasa bit of a white elephant. I 


two little hovercraft to move 
them into place.” 

Turning the centre into a 
spectator venue (and not just 
for sport) was one of six steps 
taken by the new manage- 
ment Working with the 
Squash Rackets Association, 
they made Telford the game's 
national centre: with six glass- 
backed courts, space for i 
“fish tank” court in the main

McEnroe nearing his target 



Scottsdale (Renter) - John 
McEnroe stayed on course for 
December's Grand Prix Masters 
in New York when he beat 
Kevin Curren m the final of the 
Scottsdale Open on Sunday — 
his third successive tournament

The former world No. 1 won

work cut out to reach the

ICE HOCKEY 

Times are 
changing 
for Wasps 

By Norman de Mesqmtn 

While a month is a long time 
in politics, a fortnight can seem 
like an eternity in ice hockey. 

Two short weeks ago, it 
seemed only a matter of when, 
rather than i£ Durham Wasps 
would qualify for a Norwich 
Union Cup English final and 
Tony Hand would become a 
professional in the North 
American- National Hockey 
League. Now Durham are falter- 
ing and Hand is back home in 
Edinburgh. 

Although impressing all who 


year, ironically because of 
McEnroe’s own lobbying among 
tennis officials. 

McEnroe had long felt the 
Masters should move from 
January to December. And, 
more to the point, that the Geld 
should be reduced from 16 Loan 
elite group of eight- 


on December 3. Having 
dropped out of competitive 
tennis for seven months. 
McEnroe has missed out on a 
number of qualifying tour- 
naments and now needs top 
performances in his next three 
grand prix events to secure a 
place in the Masters.

Crosby’s return gives 
a lift to lowly Bolton 

By Nicholas Harling 


Terry Crosby, the American, 
who bolds the National 
scoring record for one game, is 
back with HomeSpare Bolton, 
the struggling first division dub 
after a season in 
Switzerlandwiih Nyon. He will 
be in their squad for Thursday’s

Nashnush 
on the 
spot again 

By George Chesterton 

The first stage in selecting an 
under- 1 9 independent schools' 
XI look place at the weekend. A 
nonhem trial was held at Bolton 
and 1 1 players were selected to 
play at King's School Chester 
next Sunday against Cheshire 
Schools. 

The southern trials were held 
at Eton and a squad of 16 was 
chosen logo forward to the next 
stage on November 9 against 
Corinthian Casuals. The final 
trial for the independent schools 
takes the form of a dash 
between north and south at 
Wolverhampton on November 

The selection on Sunday- 
proved even more difficult than 
usual. The overall standard was 
good but there were few 
outstanding players. Amongst 
these was Nashnush. of 
Hbchgate. who. nonetheless, 
suffered an ankle injury which 
may put him out of Highgate’s 
successful team. He scored twice 
for them on Saturday in their 3- 
0 win over Winchester bringing 
his tally this season to double 
figures.

Water Cay has 
the class to 


make winning 
comeback 


By Mandarin 


Water Cay, off the race- 

■ course since last year’s Wil- 
liam Hill Futurity, makes his 
long-awaited reappearance in 

‘ the Queen Bess EBF Stakes at 
. Warwick this afternoon and, 
, even allowing for the fact that 
• he will be a little ring rusty, it 
V is hard to envisage him being 
beaten. 

Henry Cecil’s colt was not 
. far behind the best juveniles 
J last year, finishing a dose 
second to his stable compan- 
1 ion. Bonhomie, in the Royal 

■ Lodge Stakes and fourth in 
' both the July Stakes and 
. Futurity. At Doncaster, he was 
.1 promoted to third on the 
.^disqualification of Bold 
“ Arrangement. 

By J 0 Tobin out of 
v Waterloo, the 1972 1,000 
Guineas winner, Water Cay 
~ was expected to lake high rank 
in his classic season but 
! sustained an injury in the 
spring and the champion 
trainer has wisely not rushed 
the return of this talented colt. 

The conditions of today’s 
. race dictate that Water Cay 
. must concede 1 61b or more all 
round but this should not 
‘'prevent him asserting his 
superiority over these second- 


rate opponents,' the best of 
whom should be Uruguay. 

A more rewarding wager at 
the Midlands course should be 
Knockin' Express, who is 
napped to fulfil the promise of 
his Yarmouth debut in the 
Market Square Maiden Auc- 
tion Stakes. 

Despite drifting from 12-1 
to 33-1 before Jus introduc- 
tion, Knockin' Express 
showed excellent speed in the 
early stages of the six-furlong 
race won by Hydraulic Power, 
eventually finishing sixth of 
14, beaten 13 lengths. 

That winner is held in high 
regard by Michael Albina and 
the runner-up in that race. 
Imperial Frontier, underlined, 
the value of the form when 



Water Cay, who makes his long-awaited seasonal reappearance at Warwick today (4.0) 


beating a good field for the 
jTatte 


Somerville Tattersall Stakes at 


Newmarket 1 1 days ago. 

“ of Geoff 


The initial run 
Huffer’s colt and his sprinting 
pedigree suggest that Knockin’ 
Express will be well suited by 
today's distance of five fur- 
longs and the standard of the 
opposition is undoubtedly 
well below that which he 
encountered at Yarmouth. 


My other principal fancy at 
lbs Shirley, 


Warwick is Mbs I 


.who 


reverts to racing against her 
own age group in the Ann 
Hathaway Handicap after 
charing home that good four- 
year-old. Backchat; at 
Sundown on her latest run. 

John Dunlop, Miss 
Shirley's trainer, should also 
be on the mark at two of 
today's other meetings with 
Chili hang (2.15 Ayr) and No- 
ble Fflle (3.45 Folkestone). 

The latter showed improved 
form, when opening her ac- 
count at Haydock earlier this 


month and is not highly tried 
on her first run in handicap 
company. 

Chilibang's second ' xo 
Qarentia at Newmarket on 
his latest start was made to 
look even better when thai 
winner finished a creditable 
third in the group three Corn- 
wallis Stakes at Ascot on 
Saturday. 

Elsewhere at the Scottish 
track, it should pay to follow 
the combination of Steve Nor- 
ton and John Lowe, who can 


land a double with ForceDo 
(3.15) and Spruce Baby (4.15). 
i particularly like the chance 
of Sprues Baby, who makes a 
quick reappearance after 
finishing a good third to 
Zarbyev at Newcastle seven 
days ago. 

The day’s fourth Flat card b 
at Redcar where Mark Pres- 
cott sends last week’s Wolver- 
hampton winner, Btckerman, 
for the Boulby Hand icap in 
preference to two other 
engagements today.

Ajdal faces maximum of four 


Ajdal, the Guineas 

Eavourite, will have a 
of Tort opponents as be 
endeavours to enhance his al- 
ready substantial reputation in 
the £35,000 William HOI 
Dew hurst Stakes at Newmarket 
ob Friday. 

Apart from Michael Stqote’s 
tmpressive Momington Stakes 
winner, only Mister Majestic, 
Genghiz, Shady Heights and 
Rum boogie were dedaired at 
yesterday’s f oar-day stage. 

The sponsors, understandably 
disappointed at the poor accep- 
tance for what was once re- 
garded as the two-yeaiHdd colts* 
championship, will not be bet- 
ting on the race until the day. jy 

Stoat e, who has carried aO 
before hfrn in En glish ■mi Irish 
pattern races this season, has 
surprisingly never woa the 
Dewhnrst and victory on Friday 
wonld also provide AjdaTs 
owner. Sheikh Mohammed, and 
jockey, Walter Swinbnrn, with 
their first success in this gronp 
one contest- 

Shadj Heights and 
Rmaboogie, who filled the 


places behind Forest Flower in 
the Mill Reef Stakes at 
Newbury last month, should 
provide an informative link be- 
tween the relative merits of the 
colts and fillies if they take their 
chance on Friday. 

Mister Majestic stayed on 
bravely to win a sob-standard 
Middle Park Stakes at the last 
Newmarket meeting bet there 
most be doubts about this 
W'-'.n 



Wednesday, Thursday and Fri- 
eekandtbei 


Michael Stoote: seeking first 
Dewhnrst winner with Ajdal 


day of last week and the straight 
wifi again he watered today 
mtless it rains. 

• Kempton’s cleric of the coarse, 
Michael Webster, expects the 
going for Saturday's Charisma 
Records meeting to be “no worse 
than good to firm." The Snabory 
track has been watered regularly 
during the last few weeks.

Tony Culhane was always un

MOTOR RACING: ADELAIDE IS HANDED THE LAST HOORAH IN WORLD FORMULA ONE CHAMPIONSHIP 

Mansell’s nerve is facing its final test 





Master of Mexico: Ansriian Gerhard Berger takes the chequered fkg in his Beneonn-BMW, and later samples the spoils of victory after the first grand prix win of his career. 

From John Ek raden, Mexico be bis nerve. This week he will a much closer run thing. Each would 

_ soend two days on the Honda stand then have five wins, two seconds, 


The organizers of the Australian 
Grand Pnx must be delighted that 
the 1986 Drivers World Champion- 
ship will be decided in Adelaide on 
October 26. So are many members 
of the Grand Prix fraternity, most of 
whom were so impressed with the 
organization of the inaugural race 
there last year that they believe 
anything else would have been less 
than justice. L 

Even Nigel Mansell, though 
understandably disappointed not to 
have been able to put the issue 
beyond doubt in Mexico City on 
Sunday, concedes that the still 
finely-balanced championship bat- 
tle is in the best interests of the 
sport- “It will make a terrific finale 
to what has been one of the best 
seasons fbr years," he said. 

It also means, of course, that for 
Mansell the pressure is on for two 
more weeks, but he is still handling 
it well, and if anything lets him 
down at the final hurdle it will not 


be his nerve. This week he will 
spend two days on the Honda stand 
at the Motor Show, then a few days 
of relaxation with his family before 
flying out to Australia at the 
weekend. 

With 70 points on his score-sheet 
compared with Alain Frost's 64 and 
Nelson Piquet's 63, Mansell is still 
favourite to take the title. Victory in 
Adelaide is vital for the other two, 
and even if one or other of them can 
win they will still be thwarted if 
Mansell finishes in the first three. 
Third place would give him 72 
points from his 1 1 best results of the 
season. A victory by Prost or Piquet 
would also place them on 72 points 
from their best 1 1 scores. 

The tie, in that instance, would be 
resolved in Mansell's favour which- 
ever of his rivals finished first in 
Australia. If Prost won the race it 
would be his fourth victory of the 
year, but Mansell already has five 
wins so the title would be his. 

If Piquet were to win the final 
race with Mansell third, it would be 


three thirds and one fourth place. 
Mansell, however, has finished fifth 
on two occasions this seasoo. Piquet 
on none. So again, the title would be 
Mansell's. 

For most of the teams racing in 
. Mexico City on Sunday, of course, 
the championship was beyond reach 
- it was the race itself which 
mattered, and especially so for 
Benetton. This team, which ran 
under the Toleman name until it 
was purchased last year by the 
Italian clothing company, has been 
part of the grand prix scene since 
1981. At first, it found the going 
very lough indeed, and in the early 
days it was something of an 
accomplishment to even qualify for 
a race. But this enthusiastic and 
colourful team has never been short 
on perseverance, nor has it ever 
indulged in self-pity when things 
have gone wrong- Instead, it has 
kept plugging away, gradually eas- 
ing its way up the starting grid and 


put in a few championship points 
into the record book. Two years ago, 
Ayrton Senna was on the driving 
strength and he soon demonstrated 
the potential of the nimble chassis 
designed by Rory Byrne. Last 
season Teo Fabi put the car on pole 
position in Germany and has done 
so on two more occasions this year. 
But for Benetton, good qualifying 
performances have been difficult to 
translate into solid race results — 
until Sunday. 

For their team manager. Peter 
Collins, Berger's race victory was 
especially pleasing. “I think people 
have been taking us seriously most 
of the season, but now I think we 
have earned the right to be consid- 
ered a top team. I'm delighted that 
we’ve been able to give Pirelli a 
victory before they bow out. We 
used mud tyres on the left side of the 
car and slightly softer ones on the 
right It was a big gamble, but motor 
racing is all about gambling, and I'm 
delighted it came ofTand enabled us 
to go through non-stop". 


No team exactly jumped for joy 
when another one pulled off a 
victory. But in the paddock after 
Sunday’s race there was a great deal 
of goodwill going for grand prix 
racing's latest winning team. “They 
deserved it” was the almost unani- 
mous verdict.

Maradona makes amends 


Diego Maradona pul his pen- 
ally tears behind him at the 
weekend as Napoli drew along- 
side Juvemus at the top of the 
Italian first division. But an- 
other World Cup veteran* the 
Spanish midfield player, Juan 
Senor. suffered Maradona's fate 
of 1 1 days previously as a failure 
from the penalty spot robbed his 
dub side of their last chance of 
saving the game. 

Maradona had been dis- 
traught after his miss at the end 
of a penally shoot-out in the 
UEFA Cup tie against Toulouse 
had put Napoli out of the 
competition. But the Argentina 
captain did not shirk his 
responsibilities at Sampdoria 
yesterday when the referee 
awarded a hotly-disputed pen- 
alty against the home side in the 
65th minute. Maradona slotted 
homem give his side both a 2-1 
win and the chance to go lop for 
the first time in five years when 
they play host to Atalanta next 
weekend. 

Senor was considered to have 
the ideal temperament to take 
an important penalty until yes- 


terday when his missed spot- 
kick four minutes from time 
robbed Real Zaragoza of a draw 
away to Atletico Madrid. 

The match of the day in Spain 
yesterday between Zaragoza and 
Atletico Madrid was reaching its 
climax, with Atletico 2-1 up 
after a superb 40-meter run and 
low shot from Francisco 
Llorenlc. when the visitors were 
awarded a penalty. Senor was 
the obvious man to take it. but 
his shot hit the post Atletico 
survived and slipped into sets 
ond place, one point behind 
Barcelona. 

Barcelona straggled past local 
rivals Espanol 1-0 to remain 
unbeaten in the league after nine 
matches. The Catalans are 
showing a useful ability to win 
even when playing below their 
best and the return of Ramon 
Caklere could help Gary 
Lineker and Mark Hughes show 
their best form. 

Real Madrid have taken just 
two points from three league 
games since trouncing Young 
Boys, of Switzerland, 5-0 in the 
European Cup two weeks ago. 


Beaten by Osasuna last week- 
end. they were yesterday held 0- 
0 by another lowly side. Racing 
de Santander, and fell to third 
place. 

In West Germany, Bayern 
Munich extracted a 0-0 draw 
from their game with Eintracht 
Frankfurt to stay top of the 
league. Bayern have not won in 
Frankfurt for 16 years and they 
never looked like breaking the 
jinx once a shot from their lull 
back, Nacbtweih, had re- 
bounded to safety off a posL 

Hamburg SV moved into 
second place after a 2 -0 win 
against Stuttgart, easing above 
Bayer Leverkusen.

Threat to 
Safari 
circuit 

By Mitchell Platts 

Cordon J. Brand's finest sea- 
son is being tarnished by a 
w o t tying wait for his £18,000 
first prize which be won at the 
Nigerian Open in Lagos last 
February. And if the sponsors 
fail to complete foO payment of 
the £125,000 prize fund ia the 
near future there is a distinct 
possibility of a change in policy 
as fiur as the entire Safari circuit 
b> concerned. 

Ken Schofield, executive 
director of the PGA European 
tour, said: “I am always con- 
cerned when we are owed money 
though we have been in this 
position before. Ewen Many 
waited most id the year in 1984 
after be won the Nigerian Open. 

“The Nigerian Open has al- 
ways paid m full since the fitst 
event in 1969, and we are hopfiag 
that they will continue that 
record even though there has 
been no concrete response yet to 
the frequent telex messages 
between ns.*’ 

Brand, the 31 year old 
Yarkshireman who finished run- 
ner op behind Greg Norman in 
the Open at Turn berry in Jeiy, 
led the Safori circuit this seam 
with his victories in the Nigerian 
and the Inwy coast Opens. He is 
enjoying by for his best season in 
Europe with winnings of 
£98^256, and he is cnmmtly fifth 
in the Epson Order of Merit. 

The tardiness of the Nigerians 
is also creating a problem, for 
Schofield who is eager to com- 
plete the arrangements for the 
Safori circuit in 1987.“We can- 
not go ahead and finalise dates 
m we have received payment 
from the Nigerian Open, and an 
derstanding that the event 
will take place next year,” added 
Schofield. “It has to be under- 
stood Oat it is not Eke negotiat- 
• for a Bell's Scottish Open or 
a Sanyo Open. 

“If the Nigerian Open way 
removed from the c a le nd ar then 
that would place the Ivory Coast 
Open jeopardy. The two events 
are geographically well suited, 
befog within a one-boor flight of 
each other, bid the Ivory Coast 
Open does not have a large prize 
fund so the l ik e li hood of players 
going there for the one event 
would be mfoimaL**

Scott drives Astros 
to great heights 


New York (AP) — Mike Scon 
pitched a lhree-hiner in a 
record-setting performance on 
Sunday night as the Houston 
Astras defeated New York Mets 
3-1 and levelled the National 
League play-offs at two victories 
apiece. 

Alan Ashby, given a second 
chance when his foul pop-up 
was not caught, hit a two-run 
homer and Dickie Thon added a 
solo shot, accounting fbr all the 
runs off the Mets left-hander, 
Sid Fernandez. 

Scott, who beat the Mets 1-0 
in the first game became the first 
pitcher in either league to pitch 
two complete games in a play- 
off series. 

Scott won the first game with 
a five-hitter, equalling a play-off 
record with 14 strike-outs. 
While he was less overpowering 
this time, returning on three- 
days rest after throwing 12S 
pitches in the first game, he was 
no less effective. 

Scott bad 19 strike-outs, the 


highest ever in a league play- 
off.The lone ran off Scon came 
in the eighth when pitch hitler 
Danny Heep drove in Mookie 
Wilson with a sacrifice fly.The 
Astros scored two of their runs 
in the second inning, an inning 
prolonged when the Mets failed 
to catch a pop-up in foul 
territory by Ashby before be hit 
his home run. 

• ANAHEIM (Reuter) - The 
slumbering bats of Boston's 
power hitters came to life jus! in 
time on Sunday as the Red Sox 
beat the California Angels 7-6 in 
1 1 innings to force a sixth game 
in their American League 
championship series. 

Dave Henderson, the sub- 
stitute centre fielder, drove in 
the winning run in front of 
64,000 spectators and shattered 
the Angels' dream of winning 
the first pennant in their 2S-year 
history.

Payton’s place secure 


New -York (AP)- Walter 
Payton of the Chicago Bears 
became the first player to record 
20XKX) yards (or combined rush- 
ing, receiving and returns, and 
another versatile player, Her- 
schel Walker, helped keep the 
Dallas Cowboys in the National 
Football Conference East race 
by ending Washington Red- 
skins' unbeaten run with a 30-6 
victory. 

After Sunday's games only 
Chicago, who beat Houston 
Oilers 20-7 thanks to 76 . 
rushing from Payton, and 
ver Broncos, a 31-14 winner 
over San Diego Charger, re- 
mained unbeaten in the Na- 
tional Football League. 

New York Giants, who now 
have a S-I record, gained their 
fifth successive win — their 
longest winning streak since 
1970 - through Phil Simms’s 
two touchdown passes. The 
New York defense, led by their 
linebacker, Lawrence Taylor, 
held the Philadelphia Eagles 
offense to 1 17 yards and sacked 
their quarterbacks, Ron 


Jaworski and Randall Cunning- 
ham, six times. 

Dallas Cowboys’ Walker ran 
for two touchdowns, both on 
one-yard runs, and gained 1 15 
yards on six receptions, to give 
Dallas a 4-2 record and drop

Q9P 

Olympic 
pool is 
full of 
piranhas 

From David Miller 
Chief Sports Correspondent 
Lausanne 

Lord Lake, Ihe 81 -year-old 
International Olympic 
Committee member, of Eton, 
Trinity (Cambridge) and 
Odell Castle, Bedfordshire, is 
a little bard of hearing bat still 
alert 10 the nuances of sport. 
Bidding goodnight to tnembere 
of the Birmingham candidate 
committee here the other day, 

as be beaded fur the elevator, 

he said, almost absent- 
mindedly: Try not to fool it 

op too much." 

Everybody laughed. Yet 
there was a meaningful under- 
current of truth in the aside of 
an aged aristocrat who has 
been 35 years on the IOC and 
was for 27 years chairman of 
Bovril and also of the National 
Playing Fields Association. 

The evidence of the past 48 
hours, around the exhibition 
stands of 13 candidates and 
the myriad committee meet- 
ings, is that Birmingham a 
bid which is viewed seriously 
by enough IOC members to 
make it a fancied outsider; hot 
that Birmingham may be go- 
ing lo anderseU itself through 
lack of experience and knowl- 
edge of the piranha-infested 
aquarium of international 
sport. 

In the wake of such veteran 
administrators as Follows, 
Nod-Baker, POrritt, Rons, 
Wintertottom, Exeter and 
Duncan, Britain is pitifully 
short of international sports 
leaders. What Birmingham 
has desperately needed this 
week is one or two inspira- 
tional sporting figures who 
would have given risible 
identification to its outstand- 
ing sports-for -the-competitors 
offer.

Argentina to 
play hosts 

Buen&s Aires (Reuter) — 
Argentina will host the South 
American football champion- 
ships next year, with tentative 
dates between June 28 and 
July 19 having been setThe 
teams will be divided into 
three groups of three at 1978 
World Cup venues Cordoba, 
Rosario and Buenos Aires. 


This is no reflection on 
Denis Howell, who has val- 
iantly fronted the campaign in 
his inimitable, occasionally 
sarcastic, parliamentary way 
bat has been learning while he 
travels tens of tboasands of 
miles the intricate allegiances 
of the often vain, self-im- 
portant, sometimes childish 
and occasionally objective 
members of the IOC. 

On the technically brilliant 
foundations of Jimmy Mann, 
the foremost leisure admin- 
istrator in Britain, Howell has 
lifted Birmingham to where it 
is: one of three candidates, 
with Amsterdam and Bris- 
bane, organized with a balance 
of genuine sporting and social 
awareness who, lamped to- 
gether in one block of votes, 
coald overhand Barcelona and 
Paris. 

What Birmingham needed, 
harsh though ft may soand to 
say so, was a foundation 
committee, separate from the 
council which landed the bid, 
to provide some 
sophistication. 

Birmingham’s committee, 
dedicated, altruistic and afaie, 
has created around the Na- 
tional Exhibition Centre an 
almost unrivalled challenge, 
yet has (aided to remain 
provincial. 

Two nights ago there was an 
invitation to each dty lor half, 
a dozen members to dine with 
the IOC Each carefully nomi- 
nated its key negotiating 
personnel. Birmingham, well 
inteutfoned but misguided, in- 
cluded a ample of wives and 
omitted Mann. 

Other bricks are audibly 
dropped. Foreigners who have 
known each other 20 years are 
enthus i as ti cal l y introdacedcto 
one another by Birmingham 
representatives, not all ]of 
whom have the subtlety and 
tact of Graham Tevis, the 
Midlands police security 
expert. 


Critical impact 
of Coe and Co 


Where are the British lead- 
ers? Mary Glen Haig, a 
diligent new IOC member, as 
yet metaphorically does not 
pond) her weight. The irony of 
Lord Luke's comment is that 
Howell and Charles Pahne&- 
the British Olympic 
atioa chairman who vis 
competes with HoweU risitify 
to be in Birmmgham' l s front 
fine - are both azurions even- 
tually to sncceed Luke, yet 
conU be bypassed by Princess 
Anne, the BOA president, or 
Sebastian Coe, a member of 
tiie athletes’ commissfon. 

Coe will address the IOC in 
Thursday's final presentation, 
which includes an rnmeflft 
video documentary with Ron 
Pickering as commentator. 
Their impact will be criticaL 

Short of Prince Philip, 
president of the Equestrian 
Federation, Britain has no 
international figurehead. Bir- 
mingham would have d one 


better to invite Dick Pahner, 
the respected retiring BOA 
secretary, ami David Hemery

campaigning, rather tha»

RUGBY UNION 


Players claim Board’s 
decision does not 


protect fringe benefits 


The decision of the Inter- 
national Rugby Football 
Board (still to be con finned 
next March) to compensate

tours and when you think it is 
all paid for, if you ask for more 
than that you are being

by leading players in the borne 
countries. At the same time 
the players emphasize that 
they have no wish to be paid 
for playing the game — rather 


“It is a step in the right 
direction," Richard Hill, 
England's captain against Ja- 
pan last Saturday, said. He has 


that they should not be out-of- 
Klfc 


pocket fordoing so. 

However, there is a certain 
disappointment that ■ the 
board, whose meeting ended 
last Saturday, did not come to 
grips with related questions, 
such as fringe benefits avail- 
able to players away from the 
rugby field and the expense of 
attending squad preparations 
for domestic internationals. 


been on two' big tours with 
England (the Ids new tour 
allowance, relating to players 
whose pay is not made up by 
their employers, stipulates se- 
nior representative tours of at 
least three weeks' duration). 

“There is a pride factor in 
representing your country but 
you should not be asked to 
lose a month's wages. Playere 
are not out to make that much 
from the game. As long as they 
get their travelling expenses 
and they get their training kit, 
all the ones I have spoken to 
are reasonably happy. 

“Players talk but they are 
not really after money. I have

greedy. I have had some fabu- 
lous times on tour but I have 
been lucky that my employers 
paid me while I was away.” 

Alan Tomes, the Scottish 
lock, who has been on nine 
important tours during an 
international career which be- 
gan in 1976. suggested that the 
amateur situation was still too 
vague, particularly in relation 
to the writing of books. Trav- 
elling expenses for players 
attending squad sessions 
should be in line with the 
national average, though 
Tomes expressed himself 
happy with the old daily tour 
eliowance. 

“You malm the most of 
what you get,” he said. 


By Paul Martin 


Disclosures of the scale of 
payments for the 1986 New 
Zealand rugby team and ev- 
idence that the Springboks were 
okn paid, though Ear less lu- 
cratively, have emerged in far- 
ther investigations by The Tima 
into the Cavaliers' rebel tonr of 
the Republic. 

The New Zealanders 
allocated amonnts 

100,000 rands (about 
each — over and above the far 
cimniiw sains they assembled 
while actually on tour. The 
Tima has been told. At last the 
source of the funding has 
emerged: Volksltas. the largest 
Afrikaner frantring institution 
and owners of the financially 
troubled Ellis Park stadimn in 
Johannesburg. 

Volksltas channelled amounts 
in excess of three million rands 
through a Far Eastern financial 
capital, according to sources 
dose to the company. “There 
was a stru c ture where the most 
senior players were given bigger 
amonnts than the youngsters — 
as is only natural in attracting 
stare for any sport,” one spokes- 
man, requesting anonymity, 
said. 

A company official said he 
was “convinced the fall story 
will one day emerge — hot the 
time is too sensitive now". Those 
involved, he said, were proud to 
have done South Africa and its 
rugby a service. 

At the time of the so-called 
MnMergate scandal Vofltskns 
allegedly channelled 13 million 
rands from the central govern- 
ment to launch the Citizen 
newspaper. Its publisher was 


the 


Lotus Loyt, president of 
Transvaal Rugby Union, who 
organized the Cavaliers tour. 

Another company. Yellow 
Pages, who hold a government 
monopoly, had originally been 
considered the tear sponsors but 
a reliable source said Che com- 
pany had provided only financ- 
ing for internal transport and 

ww a mnilqtiiai expenses. far 

short of the 25 million rands 
sponsorship. 

The information on the 
Volkskas inrohemeat had heat 
known te a South African 
Sunday Tima report er for two 
months but be had been sworn to 
withhold it. Cblin Meads, the 
torn manager, broke his silence 
in The Tima last week, making 
it easier far the Volkskas story 
te emerge. 

Meads had confirmed to The 
Tima that there had been a 
separate fond in addition to the 
one on tour, arranged in advance 
a senior Ellis Park 
Another senior tour 
source, who requested anonym- 
ity, confirmed it Both fatervfen 
were recorded 

It is not clear what scheme of 
payment was arranged or 
whether the money went te third 
parties on their behalf. 

The Springbok players, The 
Tima has discovered, received 
5,000 rands each (in to 

a technicall y unawtfaoffaed daSy 
allowance) for the fom-mafeh 
series. According to a tom 
somce, a delegation had arrived 
fa Mr Luyfs office the day 
before the last “international*' 
demanding payment as “the 
New Zealanders woe a 

bomb." 


Colin Deans, Scotland's 
hooker and captain, pointed 
out that some players in the 
national squad lose wages 
when they join in domestic 
preparations and are obliged 
to make up time owed to their 
employers. “There is one 
player who had to work 12 
extra days this year, allowing 
for five internationals last 
season and the game against 
Japan. No players should be 
out of pocket for representing 
his country, on home inter- 
national duty or on a mayor 
tour. They are filling the 
stadiums pretty full and inter- 
national rugby nowadays is a 
business.” 


Jonathan Davies, the Welsh 
stand-off halt emphasized 
that players should not be paid 
in case die game became more 
violent* “In a dose game one 
player might be tempted to 
trip another who was about to 
score a fry if he could see his 
win bonus going. 1 agree with 
the touring side of whal the IB 
has done but 1 would have 
liked to see something about 
the fringe benefits ^ if a player 
can make money from appear- 
ing on television, or writing a 
book, then good luck to him.” 
he said. “It is not damaging 


the game in any way. You are 
getting money for whal you 
have achieved, even if you 
have to put h info a trust fund. 
Some people say, 'What about 
the lower dubs? Well, I am 
sure they don't train as hard as 
we do. I've played for my little 
local side, for the youth side, 
and I've worked very hard to 
get where I am now. 


Lessons Men on the sidelines 


learned 


by Japan 


are not forgotten 

By David Hands 


Japan Is playing party left for 
home at the weekend after 
completing their eight-match 
tour of Scotland and England 
(David Hands writes). Their 
next big encounter will be 
against the United Stotts in 
Brisbane on May 24 in next 
year’s World Cup - six days 
bier they will play E n gland in 
Sydney. 

It has not been an encourag- 
ing tour for them and though 
they will hope to do well in the 
Asian tournament in Novem- 
ber. Shiggv Konno. their man- 
ager, admitted that the quality 
of opposition may not be every- 
thing they require. “We have to 
give priority to our domestic 
game then,” he said. 

“Wc have to learn to make the 
second and third phase and still 
keep the balL Then we can use 
more attacking ploys. I don’t 
think that is an impossible task. 
If our players went in lower we 
would be able to control the ball 
better. If we go in high your 
forwards are able .to smother 
us." 

Japan face the old dilemma. 
Is it better lo win or to entertain? 


In eight matches here they 
scored 145 points, including 23 


145 points, including 
tries - not Ear short of three tries 
and 20 points a match, which 
bears comparison with the 1984 
Australians, who scored 400 
points in 1 8 matches, including 
51 tries. 

The difference is that Japan 
conceded 253 points, including 
39 tries, and proved particularly 
vulnerable when vying to de- 
fend space. The tackling of their 
wings and full back was not 
good and their cover, impeded 
by basic physique, was not able 

to get across quickly enough to 
defend in depth. At closer 
quarters their tackling was ex- 
cellent. but again physique told 
against them in the mauls: io the 
loose they were entirely depen- 
dent upon instantaneous switch 
play, which was not always 
enough to beat the better or- 
ganized opposition. 

Had Matsuo, their stand-off 
half, kicked more goals they 
might have been more en- 
couraged. or opponents been 

more disconcerted. It might 

■ have token some of the pressure 
away from him had Kutsuki. the 
talented centre, been given more 
opportunities to kick at goal as 
he did well in the game against 
Leicestershire. 

Hayashi's timing at the 
lineout was worthy of admira- 
tion as was the spew of the ball 
through the hands of the back 
division. The scrummaging of 
their first-choice pack was 
watertight, though it could not 
be sustained in all the midweek 
games. 

England, and other oppo- 
nents. found them difficult at 
times to tackle and to maul 
against because they adopted, to 
European eyes, unusual body 
positions. Not the least of then- 
virtues is that, at all tinus. they 
demand the conoentraDon oj 
their opponents. No-one will 
take ihem lightly in in Australia 
next year. 


Richard Harding and Gra- 
ham Dawe. both of whom sal on 
the replacements’ bench during 
Saturday’s game against Japan 
at Twickenham, will join the 
England squad in their four-day 
training camp in Portugal at the 
end of this month. 

Handing. Bristol's 33-year-old 
scrum half and Dawe, aged 27, 
Bath's Cornish hooker, are the 
only additions to the original 
World Cup squad of 40 which 
was chosen in June. They 
replace, respectively, Nigel Mel- 
ville, the retired HeadiagJey 
scrum half, and Andy Simpson, 
of Sale, whose teaching duties 
do not allow him to go to 
Portugal. 

In tact, 38 players will make 
the trip, because Huw Davies, 
the Wasps foil back, does not yet 
know when be will be allowed to 
play again after bis shoulder 
operation and Maurice 
Colciough. Swansea's experi- 
enced lode, has been prevented 
by bis business from completing 
the fitness work required by the 
selectors. 

However, the selectors have 
kept faith with such players as 
Wade Dooley and David 
Egenon. who have been regular 
in their attendance at squad 
training even though they are 
still recovering from knee and 
bade injuries respectively. After 
the p ro gre ss he made within 15 
months of international rugby, 
Dooley’s application and phy- 
sique wiU not easily be forgot- 
ten; Bath have hopes that 
Egerton may play in one of their 
lower sides this weekend, 
though the form of their current 
back raw will make it difficult 
for him to fight his way back 
into the senior side. 

The intention is to take the 
squad to a site in the Algarve 
and work the players hard in 
conditions reasonably similar to 
those expected in Australia next 
year. Ironically, for the last 
month sun and hard grounds 
have been the order of the day in 
this country so it must be hoped 


that Portugal does not suffer 
from a deluge when England are 
there. 

The party will leave on Octo- 
ber 30 (which will put some 
pressure on those squad players 
involved in county champion- 
ship games the previous eve- 
ning) and return on November 
2. having played a practice game 
against a Portuguese XV on 
November I. The full Portugal 
XV. incidentally, open their 
FIRA fixtures against Romania 
this weekend. 

. There bad been some dis- 
cussion about taking an en- 
larged squad — there are, for 
instance, only three lodes and 
two full backs (one of whom, 
Peter Williams, has been play- 
ing in Australia all summer and 
only returns home on Thurs- 
day). But the squad will have to 
be reduced at some stage, prob- 
ably in early January when the 
side for the first international 
championship match is consid- 
ered, so it was decided not to 
take additional players. Another 
15 players are on stand-by 

Wales and France have agreed 
that they may select up to four 
capped players when they meet 
in a B international at Ponty- 
pridd on October 25. It is the 
first time that Wales have 
considered senior internationals 
at this level since 1970, when the 
B series against France began.

CRICKET: THE MAN THEY WROTE OFF IS BACK WITH A SW|NG 

w indies Botham rises from the ashes 

as a fiery strike bowler 


first for 
England 


From Richard Streeton 
Bombay 

England play West Indies in 
Hyderabad, Pakistan, on Octo- 
ber 9 next year in their opening 
World Cup match. England's 
programme in Group B contin- 
ues at two other former Paid- 
stoni Test grounds. They meet 
Sri Lanka on October 12 in 
Peshawar and three days bier 
comes a match a^inst Pakistan 
in Rawalpindi. 

The 50-over competition's 
fixtures have now been con- 
firmed for Indian television's 
guiAmne. Changes of venue are 
not expected unless any prob- 
lems arise with scheduled 
ground' improvements or local 
political disturbances. 

England next have to cross 
into India for their first two 
return games, though by air the 
journeys involved are merci- 
fully short. They pby Sri Lanka 
at Pune on October 19, on the 
ground where crowd^ trouble 
marred England* s visit two 
years ago. Then England move 
on to the famous pink city of 
Jaipur to meet West Indies, on 
October 23. 

After this England return to 
Pakistan for their final group 
match against Pakistan, era 
October 27, in Karachi, which 
has an unhappy record of crowd 
incidents. 

Pakistan hosts nine group 
matches .and India 1 5. Each 
country stages a semi-final on 
November I. in Lahore and 
Bombay, and India the final on 
November 7 in Calcutta. 

Far greater distances have to 
be covered in Group A. which is 
formed by India, the holders, 
Australia, New Zealand and 
Zimbabwe. Australia, for in- 
stance, stort with two games in 
Madras, scene of the recent tied 
Test- Then they go north for 
matches in Indore, Delhi and 
Chandigarh, before journeying 
eastwards to Cuttack. 

Details about playing con- 
ditions will not be finalized until 
the ICC meet in Delhi on 
November 3 and 4.

Ian Botham, written off as 
new-baO bowler by some critics, 
is determined to lead England’s 
attack in Australia this winter. 
Thai is the onlv conclusion to 
draw from a p er forma nce in the 
nets at Brisbane yesterday which 
showed why he is the world's 
leading Test wicket-taker. 

Botham, handed a new ball, 
bowled with pox purpose 
under a hot sun for 60 minutes 
and produced deliveries which 
swung so much that at times 
Will Slack and Chns Broad, the 
openers, found him unplayable. 

Some people believed the 30- 
year-old all-rounder bad lost 
that particular art. cm rig his 
efforts in the West Indies last 
winter which produced only 1 1 
Test wickets at 48.63 nnts 
apiece. Bui Botham's contribu- 
tion to England's highly impres- 
sive second practice earned 
praise from the assistant man- 
ager. Micky Stewart. 

“If ‘Both’ bowls throughout 
the tour as he did today then 
everyone will be delighted.” be 
said. “We set him a target of 
bowling non-stop for an hour. 


which is equivalent to a session 
of play. He accepted the chal- 
lenge, swung the ball and 
worked hard at it.” 

When Botham returned to 
Test cricket against New Zea- 
land at the Oval in August after 
his nine-week ban for a drug- 
taking confession, he found 
himself cast as a change bowler. 
But Stewart said yesterday:” 
‘Both* is at his best when he 
swings the half and to do that he 
needs a new ball. Historically, 
he has got his wickets as a strike 
bowler.” 


Neil Foster improved steadily 
after a wayward start. 

When the players returned for 
a second session Gladstone 
Small rose to the challenge and 
bowled Boibam with one 
spffliKiittr delivery which cut 
back considerably. E nglan d 
have four more days to prepare 
for their first game, which is 
against a Queensland Country 
XI at Bundaberg. starting on 
Saturday. 

Bill Athey is not prepared 


Stewart emphasized .the im- 
portance of keeping a shine on 
the boll to encourage move- 
ment, backing up his advice 
with the memorable quote: 
“You must treat a oew cricket 
ball like a young bride.” 


With Botham setting a per fe ct 
example, the other fast bowlers 
were quick to respond. Graham 
Dilley looked sharp and menac- 
ing. Phillip DeFrenas again 
demonstrated his happy knack 
of extracting extra bounce and 


to let a painful injury jeopardize 
his England chances. The 29- 
year-old Gloucestershire bats- 
man was so concerned about an 
ache in tus right shoulder that he 
had an exploratory operation 
days before leaving home — and 
as soon as he reached Brisbane 
he had the stitches removed. 

The opera ion revealed that a 
tendon is shredding against the 
bone. The injury does not 
inhibit his batting or occasional 
medium-pace bowling and be is 
ready to grin and bear the pain 
while answering England’s cause 
in the field.

A Test series is at stake for 
India and Australia when the 
third and final match sums here 
tomorrow on a pitch that is not 
expected to last the distance. 
After the tied match at Madras, 
it was a terrible anti-climax 
when the weather ruined the 
second Test in Delhi. Now the 
stage is set for a game, which 
seems bound to be loaded with 
tension. 

Polly Urarigar, the last of 
whose 59 Tests took place 25 
years ago, was y ester day 
supervising the pitch s prepara- 
tion in the circular Wankbede 
stadium, whose concrete stands 
rise steeply to the sky. Fora man 
who made 12 centuries for India 
be was remarkably un- 
sympathetic to his modern day 
successors. 

“Z am hoping this wicket will 
crumble towards the end of the 
match.” hr said. “That is what 
we would like. We believe a 
result would be good for cricket 
and good for everyone.” The 
Indian selectors, confident that 
they hold the higher trumps in 
spinners, studied the known 
coloured pitch intently as the 
Indians practised. 

Sivaramakrishnan, the tiny 
wrist-spinner, who destroyed 
England two years ago in the last 
Test match played on this 
ground, is among the Indian 
squad assembled. However, be 
tends to be costly and will 
probably not be risked. India 
seem more likely to rely once 
again on the two left-arm spin- 
ners, Maninder Singh and Shas- 
tri, together with Yadav, the off- 
spinner. 


Australia will look to Max- 
thews, the off-break bowler who 
took five wickets in each innings 
at Madras, to take advantage of 
any turn available late in the 
match and Bright, the left-arm 
spinner, is also expected to play. 

Zoehrer is expected to retain 
the wicketkeeper's role despite 
Dyer's maiden century at 
Baroda. 

There is no question that 
India on present form, and in 
their own country, look the 
stronger of the two teams. 
Australia, inevitably, are a little 
jaded after a hard tour in 
unfamiliar conditions. They are 
also conscious that their recent 
record in the home straight on 
tour is poor. 

England won the last Test at 
the Oval in 1985 by an innings; 
New Zealand won at Auckland 
seven months later by eight 
wickets. The Australians, how- 
ever, are so desperately anxious 
to return home to play England 


with a winning series behind 
them, that sheer determination 
might carry them through. 

The tourists remain 'puzzled 
by the decision to select two new 
umpires for the match, Messrs 
D Ghosh (Calcutta) and R B 
Gupta (Delhi). 18 different um- 
pires will have stood in the three 
Tests and six one-day inter- 
nationals on this tour. The 
touring team doubt if the 18 
leading umpires in India are of 
equal merit and fed that only 
the recognized best should stand 
in Test matches. They suspect 
some of the officials have been 
tried (Hit for the Work) Cup

Bowlers lift W Indies 


Quetta (Reuter) — West In- 
dies, boosted by halfcenturies 
from the spin bowlers Harper 
and Butts, and a telling new ball 
speU by Gray, surged towards an 
innings victory in their opening 
cricket lour match yesterday. 

Harper, top scorer with 77, 
and Butts, who hit an unbeaten 
57, helped to lift West Indies' 
fust innings total to 329 all out 
— 198 ahead of the Baluchistan 
Governor's XI 
Harper then snapped up two 
wickets to press home the 
touring team’s advantage after 


an inspired burst by Gray 
Gray, on his first tour, dis- 
missed the first four batsmen 
before Ejaz Faqi checked the 
slide. 

The day started promisingly 
for Baluchistan when their off 
spinner S^jid Akbar bowled the 
West Indian captain Richards 
with the first ball of the morning 
for 47, making the score 140 for 
six. But Harper and Butts swung 
the gam e West Indies’ way.

World's leading rider in quest for cycling’s Holy Grail 

Kelly yearns for Tour glory 


Today ia Paris Seas Kelly 
will be taking more than a rattaal 
interest in the presentatioa of 
the route of the 1987 Tour de 
France. The 30- year-aid Irish- 
man has just dte e b ed for the 
third successive year the ac- 
colade as the world's No. 1 
racing cycKst, as die winner of 
the Super Prestige Pernod tro- 
phy, bsf he has yet te win the the 
premier French event. 

Asked recently about his 
remaining a m biti on s in pro- 
fessional cycling, the normally 
tongue-tied Kelly Immediately 
replied: “The To«r de France 
and the World Chgmpiosghfp 
are the two crests I wan f te add 
te my list of victories. I would 
trade either of those for another 
Super Prestige tide.** 

Exactly three years ago such 
grandiose ideas would have been 
oat of character for this modest 
mao who shuns material pos- 
sessions - he doesn't even own a 
boose ia Ireland, preferring to 
stay with fa-laws when he goes 
borne te County Waterford. 

Yes, three years ago. Kelly 
had yet to win ooe of Europe's 
great classics. The first turning 
point fa hi$ long career came in 
March 1982, when he snatched 
victory with a stunning time trial 
performance on the final day of 
the Paris-Nice races he won this 
seven-day event for .the fifth time 
fa succession this year. Bat All of 
the marathon, one-day classics 
had eluded him. .His team 
manager and early mentor. Jean 



Ke lly has this year added two 
farther classics to his growing 
palmares, Mifan-San Remo in 
March and toe Grand Prix des 
Nations fa September. But a 
crash on the final day of toe 
Tour of Sw i t ze rl a nd in June 
sidelined him for this year's 

Too- de France, the race in 
which be has finished as high as 
fourth but few people rhmy be 
can win. “I was very upset to 
miss toe Tear this year,” Kelly 
staled. “I was terrible te live 
with for a few days, jnst ask my 
wife, bat I reasoned that I woted 

ba3d up plenty of reserves far 
the end of Che season”. 


Kelly- eager for success. 

de Gribaldy, a former modest 
professional cyclist from East- 
ern France, explained: “Sean 
lacks confidence in himsett.” 

The breakthroogb /w fa toe

final, classic in mid-October,

Foot men crossed toe finish 
line within six inches of each 
other, but toe photofinish ram. 
era clearly showed Kelly first by 
a tyre’s width from the Ameri- 
can. Greg LeMond. 

The rider from Carrick-oo- 
Soir has progressed from that 
first classic victory to win all of 
the other major one day races, 
except one — the Tour of 
Flanders. 


His logic has proved correct. 
Although LeMont) won the Tow 
de France to cake over toe

Super Prestige competition and 
added to his lead with a second 
place .fa toe Coors Classic fa 
America. Kelly made a remark- 
able fightoaefc fa September. He 
turned toe tables on LeMond by 
winning the Tour of Catalonia 
stage race fa Spam, finishing 
second fa the Paris-Brussets 
classic and winning toe Nations 
time trial fa Franoe. A sixth 
place fa the CreteO-ChavUie 
classic two days ago put the 
Pernod Trophy in Kelly's bag 
far a third time — but he stiff 
doesn't havea mandepiece back 
home on which to place it.

SPORT 


League on crash 
course with 


the Government 


All quiet 
in the 
eye of 
storm 


By Peter Ball 


By Clive White . 


The Football League have 
set a confrontation course 
with the Government over the 
way to handle hooliga n is m , 
believes a former member of 
their management committee. 
And the takeover of the 
Football Association itself— 
although not appearing on 
today's agenda for the 
League's committee meet- 
ing -could well appear on a 
future one. 

That is the view of John 
Smith, the chief executive of 
Luton Town, who informed 
The Times yesterday that 
Philip Carter, the League 
president, bad just telephoned 
him to confirm that his (Mr 
Smith’s) resignation, which 
was privately tendered last 
week, had been accepted. Mr 
Smith had been at the centre 
of the dispute with the League 
over his club's controversial 
membership scheme which 
the League had refused Luton 
permission to operate in the 
Uttlewoods Cup. 

Mr Smith said: “I was in a 
hopeless position where, as a 
management committee 
member, I had to represent a 
view of the dubs wfaicb I did 
not share. I was required to 
vote against my own dub on 
an issue which I supported. 

“I would have liked to 
continue, but we were obvi- 
ously poles apart on a fun- 
damental issue. I've worked in 
football since 1 was IS — for 
33 years — and I do feel I have 
something to offer. A lot of the 
things that we're striving to do 
will benefit the game in the 
next five to 10 years.” 

Mr Smith believes that the 
course the League have taken 
over their decision to prevent 


Luton operating the 
controversial membership 
scheme must inevitably lead 
to a confrontation with the 
Government, “which will 
mean that all clubs will suffer 
in the end.” He said: “At 
Luton we foresaw that the 
Government would step in. If 
they don't change the Public 
Order Bill the local authorities 
will make it a condition of the 
safety certificate. 

“Those authorities with 
problems will see the peace 
that we've brought to this 
particular town.” He added: 
“Instead of taking the route 
where they could have rea- 
ched some sort of conclusion 
together with the Government 
and attracted financial sup- 
port from the Government 
and local authorities, they 
have confronted people whose 
cooperation they sought” 

Although public sympathy, 
not to mention the Govern- 
ment is strongly behind 
Luton's decision to ban visit- 
ing supporters from the Kenil- 
worth Road ground, the dub 
have found themselves hea- 
vily outnumbered by their 
fellow League members. They 
lost the vote to ban visiting 
supporters from their 
Uttlewoods Cup ties this sea- 
son by 80 votes to 6. 

The contrary decision of the 
FA, the game's representative 
body in international and 
world affairs, to allow Luton 
to operate their ban hasi 
brought the FA sharply into' 
opposition with the Football 
League. But the recent sugges- 
tion that the League would 
undermine the position of the 
FA by instructing their dubs 
not to compete in the FA Cup, 


or to release their players for ! 
international matches, was j 
dismissed as “fanciful j 
speculation” by an FA official 
yesterday. 

The motion was not taken 
too seriously within the 
League either - though Gor- 
don Taylor, the chairman of 
the Professional Footballers’ 
Association, said yesterday 
that be fell that one body 
made up by members of the 
FA, the League and his own 
organisation made sense. 

Gearly though the clubs are 
unhappy with the degree of 
wealth that the FA have 
amounted at their expense. 
Since the rationalising of fi- 
nances within the league 
earlier this year, the dubs 
have felt they should receive 
something back from the FA 
as a result of their efforts in the 
FA Cup competition. 

The management commit- 
tee will be discussing today the 
FA'S decision and other mat- 
ters pertaining *to the Luton 
affair as well as reporting back 
on their own meeting with 
Dick Tracey, the Minister for 
Sport, last week. Mr Smith 
said that the committee would 
obviously spend much of the 
meeting formulating their 
strategy following the 
Government's insistence that 
membership card schemes be 
introduced ■ 

Mr Smith said: “Tfs a 
worrying scenario, whereas it. 
could have been so good. The 
course of confrontation seems 
to me to be set fair, and it 
could leave the Football 
League where South African 
sport is at the moment — 
banned by the rest of the 
world.”

England on a knife edge 


By Stuart Jones, Football Correspondent 


. Bobby Robson feels his 
‘England squad is srtting on the 
edge of a knife: If his side 
falters against Northern Ire- 
land at Wembley tomorrow 
night, he is aware that the 
nation's interest in the 1988 
European Championship may 
have ended as soon as the 
qualifying ties have begun. 

Robson yesterday recalled 
that his representatives failed 
only once in the last series of 
eight matches. Yet that lone 
defeat, at home against Den- 
mark three years ago, effec- 


tively cost England a place in 
the finals that were staged, and 
won, by France in the summer 
of 1984. 

“That will galvanize us,” he 
said. “We have enjoyed 
participating in the World 
Cup in Spain and Mexico and 
we don't want to miss out on 
successive tournaments in 
Europe. Only one team goes 
through from each group and 
we want that place very badly. 
It is a knife-edge situation.” 

Robson admitted that En- 
gland will have to improve 
considerably on last month's 


performance in Sweden. 
“Hardly anybody was in good 
dub, let alone international 
form. We never seem to open 
the season well anyway. The 
Danes beat us in our first 
match in 1983.” 

Although the collective rust 
has supposedly been shaken 
off half of the outfield players 
in the line-up that he will 
announce today were either 
unavailable or omitted in 
Stockholm. , 

The only time the party 
members will be able to 
practise together, win, as 
usual, be on the eve of the 
game itself 

Stevens, of Tottenham 
Hotspur, stm aching after his 
comeback on Saturday, was 
rested yesterday and the three 
foreign exiles did not arrive in 
time to join their colleagues in 
a training session that was 
held, appropriately, behind a 
heavy curtain of mist. Robson 
preferred also to conceal his 
plans under a doak of secrecy. 

Yet there is little to disguise. 
Five changes, whether or not 
they are to be made by choice. 


are predictable. Watson, for 
instance, is the natural 
replacement for the injured 
Martin, even though he has 
linked only once before with 
Butcher — in the 2-1 victory 
over Scotland last April. 

Bryan Robson wlD return, 
probably in place of Wilkins 
rather than the more creative 
Hoddle. England’s captain has 
not led the side since his 
shoulder was dislodged in a 
collision with a Moroccan. 
Waddle, who last played in the 
same World Cup tie, will fill 
the role of Steven on the right 

Lineker, the leading goal 
scorer in Mexico, who has 
enhanced his reputation since 
moving to Barcelona, will take 
over from Dixon in attack. 
The identity of his partner 
provides the only serious de- 
bate when considering the 
potential formation. Should it 
be Beardsley or Cottee? They 
are the leading candidates. 

Robson, perhaps delib- 
erately, lengthened the list of 
possibilities by suggesting that 
Barnes had shown moments 


of “top class” at Highbury on 
Saturday. But the inclusion of 
one versatile winger. Waddle, 
will inevitably reduce the 
chances of the other. Hateley, 
also, is more likely to be 
employed only as a substitute. 

Although Cottee has burst 
into explosive form, he ex- 
pects no more than to sit on 
the same bench. “He has come 
through the under-21 side so 
we know enough about him,” 
Robson said. “It is nice that 
there is so much competition 
for places in the forward line.” 

Yet Robson will probably 
rely on the forward who rose 
to prominence initially in the 
Soviet Union last March and 
later during the build-up to the 
World Cup finals. Beardsley 
would welcome the invitation. 
His confidence is scarcely 
being lifted during his daily 
work with Newcastle United, 
who are lying 21st in the first 
division. 

PROBABLE SIDE: Staton. Anderson. 
Butcher. Watson. Samsons, waddto, 
Hoddle. Robson. Hodge. Lineker. 
Beardsley.

vura is held in high regard by 
the Scotland coach, Andy 
Roxburgh, and he is a 
favourite to be handed the 
captain's arm hand when the 
team is announced today. 

Now that Miller, who took 
over the captaincy from 
Sounessin the World Cup, has 
had to withdraw because of 
injury, Aitken has no rival 
apart, perhaps, from Hansen, 
who leads Liverpool But 
Hansen has been out of the 
international scene for a long 
time and Aitken would be the 
more inspirational motivator 
in what can turn out to be a 
hectic match. 

Roxburgh was left with a 
squad depleted to 16 when 
Scotland flew into Dublin 
yesterday but a team capable 
of improving on a disappoint- 
ing record in the European 
Championship can be chosen 
from it. AH of the 16 should be 
available. 

Meanwhile, although Coo- 
per and McMinn are receiving 
treatment to have them fit for 
the Skol Cup Final with Celtic 
on October 26, Souness, the 
Rangers player-manager, was 
breathing a sigh of relief 
yesterday. On the threshold of 
suspension, Souness finds that 
he will not be ruled out of the 
final even if he is shown a 
yellow card at FaDdrk on 
Satuday as any ban would not 
take effect until after the 
Hampden match. 

Scottish League officials 
were happy to observe that 
there has been an improve- 
ment in field behaviour since 
the start of this season. On 
Saturday only 26 players were 
cautioned, the lowest total so 
far. 

Ron Atkinson, the Man- 
chester United manager, has 
bent his own rules to release 
Kevin Moran to play for the 
Republic of Ireland. United 
usually pull their players out 
of international squads if they 
miss a match the previous 
weekendand Moran was not 
fit to turn out for the dub last 
Saturday. 

The 30-year-old central de- 
fender bad stitches removed 
from a gash on his forehead 
yesterday and was given the 
all clear to travel to Dublin. 
Atkinson's co-operation gave 
a welcome lift to an Irish 
squad badly depleted by 
injury. 


England 

Netherlands. 


A joyful En- 
gland team 
stepped into 
the semi- 
finals of the 
World Cop 
tournament for the first time 
yesterday after beating the 
Dutch ai Wfltesen in a match 
that was more a contest than a 
classic 

Spurred on by vociferous 
home supporters England 
scored in the 14th minute 
from a short comer and hung 
on to their advantage success- 
fully holding off a determined 
challenge by the Dutch in the 
second half. 

Once again every member 
of the England team played his 
heart out and although there 
were moments when tempers 
ran a lithe high on both sides, 
one man, Jon Potter, 
England's right half kept his 


dissolved by him. 

The hopes and aspirations 
of England were finally 
realised when the Dutch gave 
up the chas e in the closing 
minutes with Sherwani, 
Batchelor and Keriy at last 
found the freedom in the open 


Barber. Keriy nipped in to 
score but the umpire despite 
the protests of some of the 
England players had blown up 
for an infringement which was 
not easily discernible. As one 
Dutch defender was on the 
line Keriy could not have been 


spaces which they were earlier offside and some of the Dutch 


denied. 

After a quiet beginning the 
Netherlands forced two short 
comers to England's one. But 
England took up the challenge 
and earned a just reward from 
their second short comer. The 


players themselves admitted 
after the match that it was a

second half having made two 
substitutions and gathered 
their resources together for a

This goal marked the begin- 
ning of a long period of 
England's ascendancy. The 
Dutch were out-played in the 
first half ami were hicky not to 
have been two goals down. 
From another short comer

Ragged defence costs 
New Zealand dearly 


Argentina — 
New Zealand 


New Zealand scrambled to 
a 1-1 draw with Argentina to 
finish at the bottom of Group 
A in the World Cup hockey 
tournament at Wilksden yes- 
terday, scoring one point from 
five matches (Sydney Friskm 
writes). 

New Zealand have played a 
lot of hockey throughout the 
tournament and should have 
finished in a higher position in 


seized the initiative and 
continually applied pressure. 
New Zeafe^ earned ten short 
comers in the match to 
Argentina's eight. 

The second half belonged 
hugely to New Zealand with 
Daji leading several assaults 
on the Argentine goal Daji 
himself put the ball in die net 
from a scramble in the 29th 
minute but the goal was 
disallowed following an 
infringement in front ofgoaL 

The equaliser came one 


attempt py the Dutch to find a 
road on the right of the field 
and the whole England offence 
stood manfully together. 

A little nastiness crept into 
the game and after Koijman 
the Dutch wing half had been 
given a green warning card 
Keriy was handed the yellow 
temporary suspension card 
after tackling Diepeveen from 
behind. He was off the field for 
six minutes but England gal- 
lantly defended their fortress. 

The Netherlands Were 
awarded a crucial short corner 
in the 23rd minute of this 
period after Schlatmann's hit 
from the left had landed 
against Potter’s body inside

Birmingham’s plan for the poor 


Should Bi rmingham suc- 
ceed in its bid to host the 1992 
Olympic Games, a scheme of 


Olympic scholarships for ath- 
letes from financially poorer 
countries will be introduced 
(David Miller writes from 
’Lausanne). 


Games was earmarked for 
such a scheme. He said: 
"Scholarships would be 
awarded in conjunction with 
the IOC (International Olym- 
pic Committee) providing 
feres, accommodation and 
fed lilies for promising young 
competitors.”

raised more than £3 million 
and a cheque will be given this 


week to Sport Aid, the cam- 
paign initiated by Bob Geldof. 

The rest of any profit from a

would be divided between the 
city and the British Olympic 
Association, after statutory 
deductions by the IOC, who

Jimmy Connors, seeded 
third, behind Ivan Lendl and 
Boris Becker, withdrew from 
the Australian indoor tennis 
championships last night after 
being taken ill at Los Angeles

Graham Lovett, the tour- 
nament director, said he had 
been told by Omnors's

player had been sick while 
checking in his bags, and had 
been taken to hospital for 
checks. Connors's first-round

Frustrating time 
for Moses 


Kangaroo court of 
United players 


Altar the leaks of last week, 
the players are also raflyiag 
round. The victory over Shef- 
field Wednesday flowing the 
point gained from the then 
leaders Nottingham Forest the 
previous week has «■- 
doubted ly provided an nplift 
for the dub, and the players 
are loth to rock the boat - 
Publicly toe, the players 
have consistently reaffirmed 
their support for Ron . Atkin-/ 
son, though rumours persist 
that some are less happy with, 
his assistant Nick Brown, who 
does most of the day to day. 
work with them. “Everyone is 
pulling together mteroafl]','* 
Edwards said, and it seems a 
fair assesseweut 
Atkinson’s enemies, how- 
ever, are unlikely to let the 
matter rest. United's handing 
of the affair has left a lot to be 
desired, the bargaroo court of 
players set up by Atkinson on 
Friday to try one of 
Manchester's most respected 
journalists, who broke the 
story feudally, doing little to 
help their cause. 

Whether the players’ cur- 
rent reticence will be mafa- 
tamed if results go wrong 
again remains to he seta- if 
they do Atkinson knows that 
this current incident will pro- 
vide his critics wfth another 
stick to beat him with even if 
for the moment he appears to 
have weathered the storm. 




The affair of JCesper Olsen’s 
eye nay not have the mo- 
mentous repercussions of the 
affair of Jenkins's Ear which 
triggered a war la 1759, but it 
has added further fad to the 
current mease surremnUng 
Manchester United. 

The dab’s attempt to drew* 
veil over the proceedings after 
the charges and counter 
charges not week «as not 
helped yesterday when it 
emerged that Clayton Bfedk- 
more, tire club's Welsh inter- 
national, had also hen 
involved in a scuffle with Read 

Moses in training three weeks 
ago. 

What effect the latest 
disclosure wiU have remains to 
be seen, but United are appar- 
ently determined to " dose 
ranks and maintain the muted 
front against the stories, ini- 
tially attributed to auaaued 
players, and repeated at the 
weekend by a Danish witness 
to the incident, that Obw, 
who needed II stitches, had 
been punched by Moses. 

The players who remaned 
at the club yesterday - several 
are away on hrteuternatioaal 
duty — were refusing to discuss 
the affair, and after meeting 
Qlsem the chairman, Martin, 
Edwards, reiterated His view 
that the matter was dosed. 

Btackmore was also at pains 
to play his incident down, 
though be confirmed that he 
had had “a run fa” with the 
combative England midfield 
player. “It was sinribr to 
Jesper's, one of those things 
that happen in the heat Of the 
moment'*, be said, but he 
denied rumours, always in- 
flated where United are con- 
cerned, that he was 
considering suing Moses Cor 
assault, or that other players 
were urging him to do so. “No 
damage was done to me,” fee 
explained-

The incidents are the latest 
upheavals in a frustrating 
period for Moses, a somethnes 
quick-tempered competitor, 
who has only just returned to 
the team after virtually two 
years oat with ifejuryi which 
struck when he was on the 
fringe of the England team. 

In the summer he flew to 
Amsterdam to attend the dink 
which had helped Bryan 
Robson's rehabilitation and 
was fined by the dub'far Ms 
initiative, which led to re- 
moors of a rift between him 
and the manager, but the dub 
have refused to sell him. 

As Blackmore remarks,, 
fights are not infrequent on 
training grounds op and down 
the country. Indeed, Arsenal 
players in recent seasons have 
said that Don Howe used to 
continually hark back with 
relish to die number of fights 
the dub's double team had 
had. contrast i ng it favourably 
with the lack of them in the 
later team as a sign of tire old 
side's greater hunger. 

In most cases, as fa 
Blackmon's, the damage is 
minimal. It is dearly not fa the 
case of Olsen, and interest fa 
the incident has also been 
fuelled by the contradictory 
stories emerging, with Danish 
journalists mainminiBg volu- 
bly that Olsen had confirmed 
their stories of Mows being 
struck. To English journalists 
the Dane is following his 
manager’s line that it was a 
result of a clash of heads, and 
he repeated to the chairman 
that it was an accident 
yesterday.
