US expels 55 
in tit-for-tat 
with Moscow 


The United States, in a 
stunning retaliation for the 
expulsion of five American 
diplomats from Moscow on 
Sunday, yesterday ordered 55 
Soviet envoys out of the 
country by November I. 

The escalating tit-for-tat 
expulsions clearly have far- 
reaching implications for 
superpower relations at an 
intensely sensitive time in 
amts control negotiations 
following the Reykjavik 

The expulsion order is the 
biggest ever in US-Soviet rela- 
tions. In September 1971, 
Britain expelled 105 Russians 
and in 1973 France removed

cused all 55 of “activities

Senior executives of the 
BBC strongly defended the 
Panorama programme for 
more than two years at a series 
of secret meetings with Mr 
John Wakeham, the Govern- 
ment Chief Whip. 

A detailed chronology of the 
dispute, made available to 
The Times, discloses that the 
corporation repeatedly re- 
jected settlement terms pro- 
posed by the plaintiffs. 

On the first occasion, in the 
summer of 1984, h refused 
their demands for £20.000 
each in damages plus legal 
costs and a full apology. 

In May this year, the BBC 
broke off the negotiations 
after insisting that it would 
not pay costs estimated 'at 
£ 100 , 000 . 

This month it suggested a 
compromise: to settle the 
Hamilton case with £20,000 in 
damages, full costs and apol- 
ogy, while leaving the 
Howarth case pending. 

Three days after the case 
began in Court 13 at the High 
Court, the BBC Board of 
Governors decided to accept 
the terms of both plaintiffs.

The first in the widely 
expected round of mortgage 
rate increases came yesterday 
from the Halifax Building 
Society, Britain's biggest with 
1.5 million borrowers. It 
added 1 14 percentage points to 
its mortgage and Vt percentage

from November 1.

Borrowers with other soci-

can, of course, expect to pay

some societies appear to see 
the Halifax's move as offering 
scope for a competitive edge. 

The mortgage market has 
seen something of a petrol-

high as the Halifax.

Runcie marriage rumours ‘scurrilous’ 

By Clifford Looftey 
Religious Affairs 

The bishops of the Church

the marriage between the 
Archbishop of ^ Canterbury and 
his wife in two national 

The House of Bishops, 
which was holding its routine 
autumn meeting at Church 
House. Westminster, unani- 
mously declared its con- 
fidence in and “thankfulness 
to God for” the leadership of 
the archbishop. Dr Robert 
Runcic. and deplored the 
distress these newspaper re- 

ports caused him and his wife 

Dr and Mrs Runcie issued a 
joint personal statement later, 
saying “in answer to ill- 
founded rumours” they had 
been happily married for 30 
years and both looked forward 
to the continuation of their 
“rewarding partnership" lor 
the rest of their lives. 

Under the headline 
“Runcie's Marriage Sparks 
Church Crisis!" The Sun said 
on Monday that there was 
"mounting pressure" on Dr 
Runcie from within the 
Church of England to "patch 
up his rocky marriage - and 
bring his wife Rosalind into 
line.” It quoted an unidenti- 

fied senior church figure as 
saying that the Runcie mar- 
riage was “obviously in 
trouble”. The Star said yes- 
terday that die Queen had 
been informed of the “crisis”, 
and that Dr Roncie was under 
“tremendous pressure to 
quit.” it reported that “many 
bishops are already said to be 
campaigning for Dr Runcie to 
resign." Bui the House of 
Bishops declared that they 
"entirely disassociated" them- 
selves from the sentiments 
expressed in the articles. 

The House of Bishops' 
statement is the first official 
reply from the Church of 
England to press comments 
over a period of years on the 

state of the archbishop's 

As on previous occasions, 
these reports have focused on 
the fact that Mrs Runcie, a 
professional music teacher 
and concert pianist, spends a 
lot of her time at their house in 
$t Albans, rather than playing 
hostess at Lambeth Palace, the 
official home of Archbishops 
of Canterbury. 

There is. however, no real 
evidence of any widespread 
campaign against Dr Runcie 
in the Church of England. 

A spokesman for The Star 
newspaper said it stood by its 
report and urged "other news- 
papers to look beyond the 
press handout.”

A lawyer will apply to the 
High Court to prevent the 
identification of two children, 
aged five and seven, who were 
involved in the death of a boy 
aged three weeks. 

Mr Roger McCarthy told an 
inquest at St Pancras. north 
London, yesterday that he 
would be making an applica- 
tion. under the Children and 
Young Persons Act, to have 
the names of the children 1 
banned from publication. If 
this was refused, he would 
apply to the High Court 

The two children are in 
council care. Dr Douglas 
Chambers, the coroner, said: 
“(t is my inclination not to 
grant the request The Act says 
may, rather than must not 
identify the children." 

After an adjournment Mr 
McCarthy told the inquest he 
would be seeking an applica- 
tion in the High Court Dr 
Chambers said: “There is 
more than just local interest in 
this case and a decision from a 
judge would be a guidance to 1 
other coroners."

who are both unemployed, at

Mr Paul Chadd. QC, for the 
prosecution, told Bristol 
Crown Court that doctors had 
seen the child with bruises on 
the head and body five limes 
in 1 5 weeks. The parents could 
offer no adequate explanation 
for their existence. 

“On the last occasion the 
injury to that child was so 
serious it suffered a fracture to 
the base of its skull, two 
broken ribs and consequent 
brain damage resulting in 
incomplete control of arms 
and legs and prohable visual

21. whose names have been

Race ban 
for trainer

Mr Stephen Wiles, the 
trainer of Flockton Grey, the 
two-year-old gelding involved 
in an alleged horse racing 
switch, was banned from hold- 
ing a licence for five years by 
the Jockey Gub yesterday. 

Mr Wiles, aged 39, who has 
been training at Flockton. 
near Wakefield, West York- 
shire since 1979, was disquali- 
fied after a two-hour hearing 
at Ponman Square, London, 
also attended by his wife, Mrs 
Elaine Wiles, and his father, 
Mr Frederick Wiles. 

The disciplinary committee 
decided that all three had 
breached the rules of racing 
over the running of Flockton 
Grey in the Knighton Auction 
Stakes at Leicester in March 

The horse won by 20 
lengths. A subsequent • in-

ing authorities led to the 
conviction of Kenneth

bler and businessman, and 
two other men for substituting 
a “ringer" in a £36.000 betting 
coup. Pictures, page 40

A “talent bank" listing 
nearly 600 women potential 
candidates for pabEc appoint-

yesterday by organizations

million women. 

The list of women is part of 
a national Women Into Public

Miss Margaret Joachim, 
chairwoman of the Fawcett 
Society, which has been 
campaigning for equal op- 
portunities for women since 
1866, said women still had to 
face hurdles such as the old 
boy network and the fact that 
many public appointments 
woe nm advertised. 

The campaign has called for 
employers and trade unions to

Mr Steel said Britain had so

A recent storey showed that 

mdy 28 per cent of members of

only 6 per cent iff those bodies 
were chaired by women. 

‘ Miss Jo Richardson, La-

The former soldier accused 
of scarring Debbie Brown, a 
stable maid, for life with 
sulphuric acid was yesterday 
branded “a Jekyll and Hyde"

former soldier in the Welsh 
Fusiliers, denies causing griev-

Hurd’s hopes 

Visitors from Africa 
will need visas, 
Hurd tells MPs 

Visitors to Britain from 
Ghana will require visas from 
Thursday, the Home Secretary 
announced in the Commons 
yesterday. A date will be an- 
nounced later for the im- 
plementation of visas for 
visitors from Nigeria. 

Mr Douglas Hurd, in a Com- 
mons statement, said he hoped 
lime would be found to debate 
the necessary changes to the 
immigration rules before Par- 
liament is prorogued next 

Admitting that detention 
costs were a matter of concern, 
he said that last year about 
three-quarters of these costs 
were reclaimed from the airlines 
and they would be billed for the 
costs arising from the events of 
last week. 

He accused the Opposition of 
wanting to tear a hole in 
immigration control so wide as 
to make it meaningless. 

Mr Gerald Kaufman, the 
shadow Home Secretary, said 
the reason for imposing the 
visas was one not of admin- 
istrative necessity but of racial 

Mr Hurd said: I announced 
on September 1 that the Gov- 
ernment had decided in prin- 
ciple to impose visas on citizens 
of Bangladesh. Ghana, India. 
Nigeria and Pakistan. 

On October 6 ! announced 
that the change in respect of the 
Indian subcontinent would take 
effect from October 15. For 
Ghana the date of 
implemanrion will be October 

It will be some lime yet before 
the necessary arrangements for 
staff and accommodation can be 
completed in Nigeria, and we 
shall announce a date later for 
implementation. The necessary 
changes to the Immigration 
Rules have been presented. 

Four of the five countries 
already require visas for British 
citizens, we would have pre- 
ferred to continue to allow their 
citizens to come here without 
prior examination, requiring 
pre-entry clearance only for 
settlement, employment and 
similar purposes. 

But the pressure on the im- 
migration control made that 
arrangement increasingly un- 
satisfactory and occasionally 
unworkable. The volume of 
traffic and its difficulty alike 

Excluding British and other 
European Community na- 
tionals. the number admitted 
grew from six million m I9S1 to 

8.5 million in 1985. 

Whereas 13.000 of these pas- 
senger were refused admission 
and removed from the United 
Kingdom in 1 98 1. the figure was 
nearly 18.000 in 1985 and rose 
to 22,000 in the 12 months 
ended June 1986. 

Passengers from the five 
countries constituted a signifi- 
cant proportion of these re- 
fusals: 49 per cent in 1985 and 
53 per cent in the year ended 
this June. 

There has been no change in 
the qualifications for entry or in 
the practice of immigration 
officers. So these figures re- 
flected the growing pressure of 
people not eligible for admission 
seeking to come to this country. 

The need to examine more 
passengers at the port of entry in 
detail submitted not only them 
but others to delay. While 
passengers were being examined 
they had either to be given 
temporary admission, often at 
risk to the control, or to be kept 
in detention, neither of which 
was satisfactory. 

When those seeking entry 
from a particular country as 
visitors indude a sizeable 
minority who may be trying to 
come here for other purposes it 
is much better that the necessary 
inquiries and authorizations 
should be made before the 
journey starts rather than under 
pressure at the port of entry. 

In order to safeguard the 
interests of bona fide visitors, 
the Foreign and Common- 
wealth Secretary (Sir Geoffrey 
Howe) has strengthened the 
staff of our posts in the sub- 
continent so that visas can be 
issued in an orderly manner. 

During the four days before 
the introduction of visas there 
was a sharp increase in the 
number of passengers from the 
subcontinent arriving at 
London Heathrow Airport. 

Included among these were a 
substantial number of young 
men. particularly from Bangla- 
desh. who were dearly trying to 
use the last days of the oki 
system to take advantage of its 

Despite the acute physical 
difficulties, I decided that these 


men should not all be temporar- 
ily admitted at once, but should 
be examined in the usual way. 

This process is now virtually 
complete. Since the introduc- 
tion of the new system last week 
incoming flights have included 
only a handful of people from 
these countries without visas 
and the system is now working 

For the countries c o ncerned it 
will now be at our overseas 
posts, not at ports of entry, that 
the main decision will be made. 

The guidelines on the han- 
dling of MPs' representations 
win in our view need altering to 
reflea this. At the port of entry 
the immigration officer will 
normally no longer have to 
exercise a Judgement on whether 
a passenger, daiming say to be a 
visitor, is bona fide. 

That judgement will now be 
exercised when the visa applica- 
tion is considered. There is of 
course a right of appeal against 
refusal of a visa. 

I do not believe that in 
addition to this safeguard the 
airlines or travel operators 
should be led to believe that 
individuals arriving here with- 
out visas will be automatically 
admitted if a member of this 
House intervenes on their be- 

This is a matter which the 
House wifi want to discuss. I 
shall not implement this change 
as regards MPs' representations 
until the House has had an 
opportunity to discuss it. 

We have introduced what win 
prove to be a major improve- 
ment in the wonting of our 
immigration control. As the new 
system settles down it will 
improve the position of all bona 
fide travellers and ease the 
strains. particularly at 
Heathrow, which have gradually 
built up over the last year. 

Mr Gerald Kaufman, chief 
Opposition spokesman on 
home affairs, said Mr Hurd last 
week ensured that for many

The Home Secretary claimed 
that contingency arrangements

Why. six weeks after the de-

figures as they ambled about at 
Heathrow asserting that all these 
young men from the sub- 
continent were genuine tourists.

Prime Minister using jobless 
as a weapon, says lOnnock 



There is no change in govern- l 
merit policy on the European . 
Monetary System and interest 
rates would have gone up more ! 
sharply and more rapidly if 
Britain had been a member. 
Mrs Margaret Thatcher told Dr 
David Own, leader of the SDP. 
during Prime Minister's 

Dr Owen had asked the Prime 
Minister to confirm the state- 
ment yesterday from 10 1 
Downing Street by her Press 
Secretary. Mr Bernard Ingham, j 
that the Government would not 
enter the EMS until after the 
next election. 

“It has cost us heavily not 
being a member of the exchange 
rate mechanism and some mil- 
lions of people face a 1% per 
cent increase in mortgage rates.” 

Mrs Thatcher. Many people 
ask us to go in thinking of it as 
the soft option, but there would 
have been a sharper and more 
rapid increase in interest rates if 
we had belonged. 

ernment was naturally reluctant 
to increase interest rates but 
when it became necessary to do 
so in order to keep downward 
pressure on inflation it did not 
hestiiate to take that step, Mrs 
Thatcher, the Prime Minister, 
said during question time. 

She was replying to Mr 
Martin O'Neill (Clackmannan, 
Lab), who asked her to tell the 
House, in the light of the 
increase in mortgage rates an- 
nounced today (Tuesday), how 
much of the £4 billion her 
Government borrowed in 
September was used to shore up 
the pound for the duration of 
the Tory conference in 

Mrs Thatcher said he would 
be well aware that it was not the 
practice to comment in any way 
o n inte rvention. 

DEFENCE: The Labour Party’s 
red rose should be replaced by a 
white feather. Mr Geoffrey 
Dickens (Uuleborough ana 
Saddlewonh. C) said during 
Prime Minister's questions. He 
said that the opposition parties 
had given notice at their party 
conferences that they would 
abandon the British nuclear 

Mrs Thatcher: I do not 
believe the Labour Party will 
ever win an election. If they did. 
it would be a catastrophe for the 
defence of Britain. 

Mr James Spicer (West Dor- 
set. C): In view of the ill-timed 
visit of Mr Kinnock to Berlin 
last week, will she take the 
opportunity to reassure the peo- 
ple of West Germany and West 
Berlin and our Armed Forces 
that this Government and the 
people of the United Kingdom 
will never betray them? 

Mrs Thatcher I made clear 
when I went to Berlin that the 
defence of the west within Nato 
is indivisible 

Mr Michael Forsyth 
(5tiriing.C): Will she confirm 
that, were she to accede to 
requests of the Opposition par- 
ties to cancel Trident, it would 
result in the loss of thousands of , 
jobs in Scotland. j 

Mrs Thatcher Trident is a ] 
vital pan of our defences and |

Far from trying to conquer 
unemployment, the Prime Min- 
ister was continuing to use it 
mercilessly as a weapon, Mr 
Ne3 Kinnock. Leader of the 
Opposition, said d aring Com- 
mons question time when he 
urged her to increase spending 
on capita] projects in order to 
ee Derate ions. 

Mr Kiniwlr: Does the Prime 
Minister recall saying just 11 
days ago at the Conservative 
Party Conference that she 
wanted to conqner unemploy- 
ment, North and Snath? 

How does she reconcile that 
with her own Government's 
admission to the European Re- 
gional Development Fond that 
with unchanged policies the 
future is frigEtteningly bleak or 
with the policy of the Govern- 
ment that public investment 
should be cut by 10 per cent over 
two years? 

How does she wish to conquer 
unemployment when unemploy- 
ment is the weapon she has 
mercilessly used for the last 
seven years and intends to go on 

Mis Thatcher:- The report to 
which he is referring was com- 
piled from submissions from 
local and other public authori- 
ties designed to support their 
bids for grants from the Euro- 


pean Regional Development 

The figures to which be refers 
are the very same planning 
assumptions that appear in the 
public expenditure surrey and 
there is nothing new. 

It is these figures which 
applied to existing differentials. 
We have followed the practice of 
previous governments. 

Mr Kmnock: None of that 
changes the fact that this is a 
devastating document from 
within the Government in view 
of the Government's record. 

If she is concerned about 
unemployment why does she not 
take the hint from the report and 
undertake public in ve s tment in 
Wales, Scotland, the North- 
east, the North-west and the 
Sooth-west of England to gen- 
erate jobs now and provide for 
jobs in the future instead of 
following the policies she insists 

- Mrs Thatcher: If he h tack- 
ling our record on providing 
capital expenditure for infra- 
structure, it was the last labour 
Government that cut public 
sector capital expenditure oy 20 

percent, cat NHSxapital expen- 
diture by 30 per cent, cot 
expenditure on roads by 36 per 
cent It is we who have restored 
many of those public sector' 

Mr Kinnock: Nobody believes 
that. WQl she teU os whether she 
is prepared to accept the demand 
from die CBI that, unless the! 
Government takes the Initiative, 
now on capital projects, the UK 
wBl lose the chance and wffl slip 
further behind in the competitive 
league? . 

If she will not listen to 
demands from North and South, 
from this side of the House and 
many others, wQl she accept the 
demands of the CBI? 

Mrs- Thatcher: May I say 
exactly what has happened on 
road spending (protests). They 
do not want to hear the nets. 

On roads, capital spending oo 
motorways and trunk roads 
increased by 25 per cent in real 
terms to £900 mutton. NHS 
capital expeoditart Increased by 
22 per cent In real terms since 
1979 and has increased to 
£2.5 billion on railways, £5 bil- 
lion in . the gas industry on fixed 
assets and capital spending on 
housing renovirtfon is op 54 per 
cent In real terms. 

Which of those figures does 
he say is wrong?

Knowsley North by-election 

Let me stand, Huckfield asks NEC 

By Philip Webster 
Chief Political 

Mr Leslie Huckfield, tire 
controversial left winger, has 
made a personal plea to mem- 
bers of Labour's national exec- 
utive committee not to block 
him from strafing in the 
imminent Knowsley North by- 

The NEC will dedde today 
whether to take the unprece- 
dented step of imposing a 
candidate on the constituency 
in order to prevent Mr 
Huckfield, who has the sap- 
port of the Militant Tendency, 
from being the candidate. 

Senior members of the exec- 
utive have given notice that 
the}' will fight Mr HnckfieliTs 
candidature for a contest re- 
garded as crucial in the run-up 
to the next general election. 
But yesterday all NEC 

members received a letter from 
Mr Huckfield empisasmag 
the strength of support in the 
local party for him, and asking 
the NEC to allow the 

Knowsley party to decide who 
should be its candidate. 

The Alliance is hoping to 
use the by-election, which 
could be next month, as a 
la un c hing pad for a comeback 
after its disappointing con- 
ference season. 

Neither tire Labour leader- 
ship nor the large centre-right 
grouping on the national exec- 
utive want Mr Huckfield to be 
the party's standard bearer in 
that contest. 

Bat if the selection process 
had been allowed to go ahead 
as planned, Mr Huckfield, the 
European MP for Merseyside 
East, would almost certainly 
have been chosen, having 
gained far more nominations 

than any other candidate in

A favourite for the seat if tire 
NEC derides to impose a 
candidate is Mr George 
Howarth, a former deputy

But that are many in the

willing to defy the NEC 

The Alliance is dearly hop- 
ing that Mr Huckfield will be 
selected. He b backed by the 
Militant Tendency and would 
give the Alliance an obvious 
target In its efforts to deride 
Mr Neil Kinnock's purge of 
Militant infiltration.

Over the next three years the 
Government planned to com- 
plete more than 100 targe new 
hospital schemes and altogether 
it had 380 hospital schemes in 
the building programme, Mr 
Norman Fowler, Secretary of 
Slate for Social Services, said 
during Commons questions. 

Mr Wflliani Hamilton (Cen- 
tral Fife. Lab) said that evidence 
in recent television programmes 
showed the rapid decay of the 
health service: Millions of peo- 
ple did not believe a word Mr 
Fowler said about savings or 
anything else. 

Mr Fowler: Record resources 
are being devoted to the health 
service. More important, a 
record amount of health care is 
being provided by health ser- 
vices under this Government.

grammes can deny that

Opposition spokesman on so- 
cial security: Both the National 
Association of Health Authori- 
ties and the British Medical 
Association believe that under

year even to maintain existing 

How will the Government 
pay for Mr Fowler’s promises at 
the Conservative Party Con- 
ference to increase the number 
of hip and cataract operations 
and cervical cancer screens, 
which in total will cost an extra 
£150 million a year? 

Why not be honest and admit 
that this can only be afforded by 
making major cuts elsewhere in 
the health service? 

Mr Fowler: That is totally 
untrue. The money and re- 
sources for those improvements 
are already in our plans and 
build on the improvements we 
have made since 1978.

during her first Commons ques-

marks about the bad effect on 
health of the North of England 

Mr Dale CampbeD-Saronrs 
(Workington. Lab) asked: Why 
does she favour making stupid, 
pathetic statements on the 
North of England which serve 
only as a public relations, seif- 
promotion campaign? 

Mrs Carrie, who rose to

Earlier, Mr Charles Kennedy

Secretary of State for Social 
Services, if he accepted the 
analysis of nursing manpower 
levels in last night's Panorama 

BBC television - -programme 
which showed that Mr Fowler's 
claims, when analysed 'in depth, 
showed a contraction in nursing 
available for patient care. 

“If Mr Fowler does not accept 
the .analysis, will he take Pan- 
orama to court?" 

Mr Fowler said he did not 
think the opportunity of taking 
K to court arose. He did not- 
accept the statement as Mr 
Kennedy had repeated -iL Since 
1978 there had been almost 
63,000 more nurses and mid- 
wives in the National Health 

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark 
(Birmingham, Sdly Oak, C): All 
of us agree that there are 66,000 
more nurses and 22,000 more 
doctors in tire health service, yet 
still hospital beds are bang 
closed and our letter bags gel 
fuller and fuller with com plaints 
about delays for operations. 

Hospital manpower, possibly 
was gomg too much into admin- 
istration and not enough into 
nursing. It was time patients bad 
more say in the matter than 
those who ran things. 

Mr Fowler said be had much 
sympathy with the bet point. 
Money on direct patient care 
had increased and that was the 
emphasis of the manpower 

Mr Frank Dobson, .Oppo- 
sition spokesman. on health and 
social security, said there was 
evidence, not only in last night’s 
Panorama but other evidence 
all around the country, . that 
doctors were spending a vast 
amount of time having to look : 
for empty beds for patients who 
needed tnenv. 

There should be better plans 
for manpower 

Mr Fowler said a record 
number of in patients were' 
being treated. . hundreds and 
thousands more than- under the

Skebnersdale. Undersecretary 
of State for the Environment, 
said during question time in tne 
House of Lords. . . 

In reply to a question by Lora 
Beswick (Lab), he had said that 
the government policy ot en- 
couraging home-ownership was 
not affected by the present trend 
in bouse prices in the south-east 
of England. 

Lord Beswick said: As tne 
Government is cteiming credit 
for bringing inflation down to 3 
per cent, it cannot escape 
responsibility for the feci that 
house prices in the south-east ot 
England have risen 1 6 per cent. 
20 per cent in London and 40 
per cent in certain sectors. 

With the current immoral 
interest rates, is not home 
ownership impossible for many 
deserving young couples ana a 
misery for many who achieve it. 
as shown by the one in twenty 
facing repossession orders? 

Lord Skebnersdale: The Gov- 
ernment rightly claims credit for 
reducing the rate -of inflation 
which has raised the real levdof 
incomes in the South-east. The 
number of first-time buyers has 
risen every year, since 1980. 
according to building society 
figures, with 85,000 in 1985. 
compared to-75,000 in 1980. 

Lord M elfish (Ind* One of 
the worst aspects of the demand 
for new housing is that the 
“spivs” are moving in. buying 
houses for £20.000 and holding 
on to them to sell later for 
£80.000 or £90.000. 

Lwd Skebnersdale: The Gov- 
ernment does not approve; of 
“spivs" or “cowboys”. This is a 
situation which needs watching, 
but I do not think the evidence 
suggests ibis is happening on a 
widespread scale.

report any difficulty in selling 

Lord NorfhfieW (Lab): If the

Mr Owen, aged 35, a car

Yorkshire, and Mrs Owen, 
aged 25, fell foul of die present 
law because June was married 
to Keith's father, Hugh. 

They had started on die

embarrassing — procedure of

hope of gelling permission to

this summer, relaxes the law

It comes after a long, 
acrimonious dispute between

in the House of Lords insisting 
on adding conditions to the 
measure to limit its scope. 

The Marriage (Prohibited 
Degrees of Relationship) Act, 
surprisingly, slipped through 
the Commons “on the nod” 
one Friday afternoon in the 

summer. One cry of “object” 
would have killed it. 

With the sharp increase in 
divorces and, with it, a rash of 
complex family relationships, 
the demand for a change in the 
law has been growing. 

The Archbishop of Canter- 
bury set up a committee, 
chaired by the Liberal peeress, 
Lady Seear, to look at some 
sort of reform. A report. No

1984 — but was for from

Residents fight 
demolition plan 

- ..Mill 

il ik’fc 1 

By David Cross 

Residents in Wimbledon, 
south London, are angry that 
their local council has begun 
to demolish a fine late Vic- 
torian house in the town 
centre shortly before a public 
inquiry opens into an adjoin- 
ing multi-million pound civic 
redevelopment scheme. 

Bui the council's director of 
development denied yester- 
day that it had jumped the 

Mr Paul Godier. Labour 
councillor for the town centre 
ward in Merton, said yes- 
terday that local residents 
were at “the end of their 
tether. No-onc can understand 
why the council is behaving in 
this way.” The demolition 
work, to’ make way for a new 
Baptist church, would cost 
ratepayers £2.500.000 without 
any guarantee that the whole 
scheme would be approved, 
he said. Under the redevelop- 
ment plans, most of the 
existing buildings, which in- 
clude the town hall, civic hall, 
magistrates* court and fire 
station, would be demolished 
to provide a shopping centre 
to be built in conjunction with 
Spey hawk. 

But local residents, who 
have been opposing the com- 
plete redevelopment of the 
site, arc fighting for an alter- 
native which would preserve 
all the existing buildings. 

They expect demolition 
work on a second Victorian 
house to begin shortly after the 
council obtains a High Court 
order to remove squatters. 

Describing the protests as a 
“storm in a tea-cup**, Mr Chns 
Carter, director or develop- 
ment for Conservativc-con- 
t»-olled Merton council, said 
opponents of the redevelop- 
ment scheme were using “ev- 
ery avenue wen to them” to 
confuse the situation. 

Many office bu3 dings put 
up only 20 yean ago now seem 
“almost neolithic” for the 
needs of today's office users,

The report. Workplace 
2000, compiled by die archi- 
tects, Scott Br o w n rigg and 
Turner, and P E Consulting 
Services, envisages “company 
villages” as a logical after- 
native to the traditional office 
b n tilling. 

These would feature shop- 
ping arcades, banks, res- 
taurants with subsidized food, 
gymnasia and keep-fit uni t s ,

great that in many organiza- 
tions, it for exceeds the cost of] 
these facilities. Quality of life 
is, therefore, important to 
emp lovers as well as to 
employees,” the report says. 

Denying strenuously that 
the council had jumped the 
gun by beginning demolition 
work before the opening of the 
planning inquiry on Novem- 
ber 25. he pointed out that the 
new Baptist Church scheme 
was not even included in the

So long as full use of these 
outleis is prevented by civil 
strife and economic and 
administrative mismanage- 
ment. it will be impossible to 
weaken the stranglehold 
which Pretoria has on the 
region's trade, most of which 
now passes through the South 
African road, rail and port 

For Mr Robert Mugabe, the 
Prime Minister of Zimbabwe 

— who had a dose personal 
rapport with President Machel 

— there is the additional worry 
that he could get sucked ever 
deeper into an expensive and 
endless military involvement 
in Mozambique. , 

Zimbabwean troops have 
been deployed in Mozam- 
bique for about four years, 
first to guard the Mutare-Beira 
oil pipe and railway line, and 
over the past year or so on a 
larger scale, to provide general 
assistance to the Mozambican 

It has been an unhappy 
experience for Harare. Zim- 
babwean generals have not 
been impressed by the perfor- 
mance of the demoralized and 
disorganized Mozambican 
which have proved 


an outright military victory 
against Freiimo, with or with- 
out South African backing, 
which has eluded them so for. 

Now that President Mach- 
el*s unifying presence has been 
removed, they predict a pro- 
longed and bitter power strug- 
gle between the pro-Moscow, 
pro-African natio nalis t and 
pro-Western factions in Frei- 
imo which will further demor- 
alize the Army and weaken 
resistance to the MNR. 

In South Africa, Govern- 
ment sources are expressing 
fears that a new, more 
hardline, Marxist leadership 
in Maputo might turn to the 
Soviet Union, Cuba and other 
communist countries for in- 
creased military assistance, 
and also encourage African 
National Congress (ANQ 
insurgents to use Mozam- 
bique as a base. 

In any trial of strength 
between Pretoria and Maputo, 
however, there can be only 
one winner, at any rate for the 
foreseeable future, and the 
Soviet Union, after its dis- 
illusioning experience in An- 
gola, is unlikely to be keen to 
take on new and uncertain 
commitments on the eastern 
flank of the sub-continent. 

Pretoria's preferred option 
would probably be to try to 
engineer some kind of co- 
alition government between 
the MNR and Freiimo, rather 
than be seen to be openly 
backing a rebel takeover 
which would almost certainly 
require direct South African 
military intervention. 

La any case, an MNR gov- 
ernment might well prove no 
more stable or reliable, from 
Pretoria's point of view, than 
the present one. 

After the signing of the 
Nkomati non-aggression 
with Mozambique in 1 
Pretoria came close to nego- 
tiating a ceasefire between the 
MNR and Freiimo. That deal 
collapsed, however, because it 
offered the MNR no share in 
government, but. merely an 
amnesty and some financial 

Renamo brings economy to standstill 

. From Martha de la Cal 

The Mozambique National 
Resistance Movement, the 
rebel organization which has 
fought against the Freiimo 
Government of President 
Machel for the past 10 years, 
sees hs chances of winning the 
prolonged civil war enhanced 
by the President's death. 

The MNR. better known as 
Renamo, was founded in 1976 
after Portugal granted in- 
dependence to Mozambique 
in 1975. 

Attempts then to bring to- 
gether Mr Sam ora MacheTs 
Freiimo liberation movement 
— which had fought the Portu- 
guese for 12 years - and other 
political forces to hold elec- 
tions foiled. This brought into 
power the Marxist-Lemnist 
Government of Mr Machel. 

The armed clashes in 
Maputo which followed, com- 
bined with President Madid's 
policy of nationalization, 
expulsion of foreigners and 
the sentencing of dissenters to, 
labour camps, caused hun-j 
dreds of thousands of Portu- 

guese, fndians and Moz- 
ambicans to flee to Rhodesia, 
Sooth Africa and Portugal. 

From among these refugees, 
Renamo was formed and fi- 
nanced. Until 1980, Renamo 
was very dependent on 
Rhodesia and South Africa, 
but after Rhodesia became 
Zimbabwe and there was the 
threat of civil war, Renamo 
turned almost exdusively to 
South Africa and the Portu- 
guese ex-colonials there. 

Renamo's first leader and 
president was Andrti Malsang- 
aissa. After his death in 1979, 
Colonel Alfouso Dhlakama 
became president and carried 
on the fight against Freiimo. 

Renamo rebels control the 
greater part of Mozambique 
and lave brought the econ- 
omy to a virtual standstill. 

Renamo surrounds the cit- 
ies of Maputo and Beira, and 
controls the highway to the 
South African border. It has 
bombed bridges and railways, 
cutting off landlocked coun- 
tries, and has kilted thousands 
of Freiimo soldiers and 

ci vilians. 

. Renamo gunmen have also 

killed Portuguese, East Ger- 
man and British citizens, and 
captured tons of weapons and 
supplies. They have warned 
foreigners and foreign com- 
panies to leave Mozambique. 

Renamo claims to have 
between 24,000 and 25,000 
soldiers under arms and an- 
other 3,000 recruiting others. 
Many Freiimo soldiers, dis- 
couraged by the war and the 
lack of food, have deserted to 
Renamo. Within the past 
weeks the rebels have cap- 
tured five towns in the region 
south of the Zambezi River 

The movement received aid 
and training from South Af- 
rica and some Portuguese ex- 
colonials, but after the 
Nknomati agreement in 
March 1984, in which South 
Africa and Mozambique 
agreed to stop helping rebel 
movements in their country, 
Renamo claims to have all its 
bases within Mozambique 
and to have captured most of 
its arms from Freiimo or to 
have acquired them from 
Western European countries 
and the near East 

After the 1984 Nknomati 
agreement there was an at- 
tempt by South Africa and the 
United States to bring 
Renamo and Freiimo together 
in a joint government The 
effort foiled when Renamo 
said they “would not share 
power with a Marxist-Lemnist 
government tied to Moscow”. 

In its programme, Renamo 
promise to hold general elec- 
tions if it comes to power and 
set up a multi-party, presiden- 
tial system like in France. 
They say they stand for 
vate enterprise and a 
market economy. Renamo 
promise to de-nationalize in- 
dustries and hand them back 
to their formerowners. 

Tie foe t that Renamo 
spokesmen act with impunity 
in Portugal caused problems 
in the past between the gov- 
ernments in Lisbon and 
Maputo. At one time, Presi- 
dent Machel actually accused 
Portuguese government of- 
ficials of actively supporting 
the rebel movement — an 
accusation which was ve- 
hemently denied by the Portu- 
guese Government.

Unions hit transport, schools and power 

Patchy response to French 
public sector strike call 

There were widespread 
isturbances in transport, 
:hools, electricity and other 
ublic services yesterday, but 
ic turnout for what had been 
e raided as France's most 
nportant strike since 1977 
as uneven and lower than 
(peeled in many sectors. 

In Paris, where it had been 
redictcd that public transport 
ould be brought ro a virtual 
andisiill. some three-quarters 
r the Metro trains were 
penning normally, as were 
sir the buses. 

However, on the main-line 
iilwavs, only one in four 
iter-aiy trains were running, 
hile on many provincial 
nes the service was down to 
ic-sixih of normal. But all 
ie scheduled high-speed 
ains were maintained. 

While electricity production 
as cut by a third, actual cuts 
ere few and of limited dura- 
on. The Communist-led 
GT union nevertheless cla- 
icd that 70 per cent of 
ectricity workers had fol- 
wed the all-union strike calL 

From Diana Gcddes, Paris 

The Federation d'Educa- 
tion Nationale (FEN), the 
largest teachers' union, clai- 
med that more than 80 per 
cent of its members had gone 
on strike. In Paris, some 60 
per cent of secondary school 
teachers and 42 per cent of 
primary school teachers were 
reported not to have turned up 
for work. 

In the postal and tele- 
communications service, the 
strike call was followed by 
about 40 per cent of workers. 
The fully automatic telephone 
service was not affected, but 
there were virtually no postal 
deliveries and many post of- 
fices remained closed 

More than five million pub- 
lic sector workers were called 
out on a 24-hour strike by the 
three main trade union federa- 
tions — the CGT, CFDT and 
Force Ouvriere — together 
with the FEN, in protest 
against planned cuts ofl9,000 
civil service jobs and a pro- 
posed zero increase in pay 
next year. 

While the unions managed 

to agree on the same day for 
their action, their rare dem- 
onstration of solidarity broke 
down when it came to the 
demonstrations which were 
held separately in Paris, 
though some joint marches 
were staged in the provinces. 

As usual, it was the Com- 
munist-led CGT which suc- 
ceeded in getting the biggest 
turnout, with an estimated 
20,000 demonstrators in Paris 
(100,000 according to the 
union), a further 15,000 in 
Marseilles and around 6,000 
in Lyons. 

It was the biggest strike 
faced by the right-wing Gov- 
ernment since it came to 
power seven months ago. 

The number of strikes has 
been falling steadily in Fiance 
for more than a decade. Last 
year, a post-war record was 
achieved with only 885.000 
working days lost through 
strikes, compared with 1.4 
million in 1976. 

Only 15-20 per cent of 
French workers now belong to 
a union, compared with 40 per 
cent in Britain.

Tories in 
poll win 

From John Best 

The voters of Saskatch- 
ewan, the heart of the Ca- 
nadian prairies, have returned 
the provincial Conservative 
Government to office, but with 
a (greatly reduced majority. 

The Tories, under their 
youthful leader and Premier, 
Mr Grant Devine, took 38 
seats in tire 64-seat legislature 
in Monday's election. The left- 
wing New Democratic Party 
(NDP) won 26. 

The liberals took one seat 
a triumph of sorts since they 
have been without any since 

It was the second successive 
time Mr Devine, a 42-year-old 
farm economist, has led tire 
Tories to victory over tire 
NDP, who have dominated 
Saskatchewan politics for 
most of the past 40 years. 

They won Monday's elec- 
tion despite depressed world 
prices for many of the products 
on which the provmce’s econ- 
omy is dependent. 

With Monday's defeat, tire 
days of Mr Allan Blakeney, 
the NDP leader, are believed 
to be numbered. Most political 
observers expect tire former 
premia to step down in about 
two more years. 

NZ defence chiefs 
tussle with Lange 

From Richard Long, Wellington 

The New Zealand Ministry 
of Defence has shown itself to 
be totally at loggerheads with 
Mr David Lange, the Prime 
Minister, over the effect of a 
breakdown in defence ex- 
change schemes with Britain. 

In evidence to the Par- 
liamentary select committee 
on foreign affairs and defence, 
the Ministry says that such a 
breakdown would seriously 
compromise the ability of the 
armed forces to maintain 
levels of professionalism. 

Mr Lange said this week 
that the exchange schemes 
could end, but that that would 
not be the end of the world. 
The hard line by the British 
Government would be the 
cause of any breakdown, he 
said, rather than his Labour 
Government's anti-nuclear 

Fifty New Zealand service- 
men will train with British 
forces ibis year under the 
exchange schemes. They are 
regarded as invaluable be- 
cause of the cancella t ion of 
American exchanges and ex- 
ercises in the wake of New 
Zealand's ban on visits by 
nuclear-armed or powered 

Defence specialists feel that 
the exchanges are under threat 

because of the anti-nuclear 
legislation, which makes it an 
offence for a New Zealand 
serviceman to assist an officer 
who may be in command ofa 
nuclear weapon. 

Admiral of the Fleet Sir 
John Fieldhouse is believed to 
have questioned Woffington 
on the legal position of a New 
Zealand Navy officer who 
might assist the captain of a 
nuclear-armed British ship. 

Mr Denis McLean, the New 
Zealand Defence Secretary, in 
written answer to questions 
from members of the Par- 
liamentary select committee, 
said: “Defence co-operation 
with Britain has long set the 
benchmark for the New Zea- 
land armed forces. If it were to 
the ability of the armed 
xs to sustain current levels 
of professionalism would be 
seriously compromised.” 

Mr McLean said that the 
links with Britain were second 
only to those with Australia in 
terms of frequency of contact, 
but in terms of professional 
value and up-to-date experi- 
ence the British relationship 
probably exceeded that with

Afrikaner church 
opens to all 

Gape Town (AFP) — Tire Dutch Reformed Church, 
dominant among South Africa's rating Afrikaner minority, 
deckled yesterday in a major policy switch to open its 
membership tn all races. 

However, the Church had decided mi Monday against 
ffinahsffflmting with its steer reformed churches which 
serve other racial groups in tire country. 

It appeared likely tint most now-whites would choose to 
remain members of the branches of the Church reserved for 
their racial groups, rather than join the Afrikaner branch. 

The two decisions were made at the four-yearly national 
Synod of the Chinch, which is known as the Nederdnitse 
Gereformeerde Kerk. It is the biggest of tire three 
Afrikaner reformed churches and exerts powerful influence 
on government riiinitfag and on of the Dutch 
French-Huguenot Afrikaners, who make up some 60 per 
cent of Sontfa Africa’s white minority.

Greece closes border 
to Tehran refugees 

From Mario Modiano, 

Greece has increased army 
patrols along the Evros River, 
which marks the Greek-Turk- 
ish frontier, to prevent an 
influx of Iranians trying to 
seek refuge in western Europe. 

A Greek spokesman yes- 
terday accused Turkey ofhelp- 
ing the refugees, who are now 
massing in eastern Thrace, to 
enter Greece illegally by swim- 
ming across the river. 

The spokesman said the 
Iranians, estimated at between 
2,000 and 3,000, were str- 
anded in Turkey after West 
Germany imposed visa res- 
trictions on foreigners cross- 
ing from East to West Berlin 
seeking asylum. 

About 40 Iranians who 
entered Greece at night last 
week were rounded up after an 
incident between Greek and 
Turkish patrols. They were 
held in prison. 

The spokesman said Greece 
had told the UN High 
Commissioner for Refugees 

and discussions were under 
way to determine whether the 
Iranians would be deported to 
Turkey or resettled elsewhere. ’

Britons call off Everest climb but vow to return 

From Ronald Faux 
Everest base camp 

Defeated by storms and" 
avalanche, the British ex- 
pedition to Mount Everest has 
abandoned its attempt on the 
mtdimbed North-East Ridge 
of the mountain. But the team 
said it intends to try fl g fl|n in 
the Spring. 

lie Chinese Mountaineer- 
nqj Association, which con- 
trols riimhmg permits on the 
Tibetan side of Everest, has 
confirmed that the ridge is free 
in the pre-monsoon months 
next year. This period, be- 
tween April and June, is 
thought to offer the best 
conditions for an attempt 

The 18 climbers in the 
Setigmann Harm Mount Ev- 
erest 1986 Expedition had 
hoped for a week or more of 
calm weather before the high 
winds of the Himalayan winter 
set in, but four fierce storms 
and dangerous snow repeat- 
edly drove them from the 
ridge. They decided on Sunday 
to abandon the attempt. 

Brummie Stokes, the ex- 
pedition leader and a former 
'soldier in the SAS Regiment, 
said that the team would 
return to try to conquer the 
ridge, the most significant 
undimbed route up the world's 
highest mountain. Next year's 
team would be smaller, he 
said, but would include hlgh- 
aititnde Sbexpas from NepaL 

“There is no doubt that too 
many of the dimbers simply 
burned themselves oat carry- 
ing loads on the lower part of 
the ridge,” he said. “No one 
could have tried harder, but 
the effort of getting scores of 
heavy loads up to the high 
camps, then the pressure from 
the terrible weather, made it 

Much the same reasons 
were probably blamed for the 
fail ore of the first right ex- 
peditions to Everest before it 
was c li m be d , from the Nepa- 
lese side, in 1953. The Ameri- 
can expedition new seeking 
evidence of what happened to 
Mallory and Irvine, the Brit- 

ish dimbers who disappeared 
on the North Ridge in 1924, 
has been equally frustrated by 
the conditions, and hit by its 
own tragedy. A Sharps 
descending from the North Col 
was killed by an avalanche on 
October 17. 

The accident happened at 
the spot where seven Sherpas 
died in an avalanche during 
the second British expedition 
to Ernest in 1922, in which 
Mallory took part

about what happened to Mal- 
lory and Irvine, if it is there to 
be found, remains gnarled by

begun to sweep the high 
reaches of the mountain. 

A bold bid to cross the 
Primaries, the stretch of ke- 

covered rock that form the 
difficult crux of the North- 
East Ridge, was made by 
Harry Taylor, a. former soldier 
with the SAS Regiment, and 
Trevor Pilling, a climber from 
Stockport, Cheshire. Hoping 
that the weather would im- 
prove on October 16 and the 
longed-for “window” would 
materialise, they poshed on np

Soviet soldiers feel the 

chill as Hungarian 
uprising day draws near 

From Richard Bassett, Budapest 

As Afghanistan has proved, 
on the outposts of the Soviet 
empire a Russian soldier’s lot 
is far from being a happy one. 

In Hungary, where there is 
no risk or stopping a sniper’s 
bullet, garrison life nonethe- 
less imposes strains. 

In the weeks before the 30th 
anniversary of the Hungarian ■ 
uprising, tension has in- 
creased between Soviet troops 
and the local people. 

This has been highlighted 
dramatically by an incident in 
a village inn near Vezsprem, 
in the west of the country. The 
innkeeper refused an ine- 
briated Russian officer a 
drink. Furious, the Russian 
left, promising he would be 
hack for his drink later with 
what he ominously styled “re- 

Two hours later, those in 
the inn heard a whining of 
motors followed by an ear- 
splitting crash as a Soviet tank 
smashed into the wall of the 
inn. The customers fled, but 
the innkeeper was not so 
lucky. His body was later 
found, crushed by the tank. 

The incident last month 
drew a strong protest from the 

Hungarian authorities, though 
predictably it has not been 
alluded to in the official press. 
Informed circles believe, how- 
ever. that the Russian officer 
involved who also apparently 
drove the tank, has been 

The area around Vezsprem 
is the main exercise ground of 
the Warsaw Pact in central 
Europe, and the headquarters 
of the four divisions of Soviet 
troops stationed in Hungary. 

For the local people, it is 
referred to as Russia's pan of 
Hungary; mile after mile of 
missDe silos, barracks and 
communications complexes. 

As living standards have 
increased in Hungary, the 
difference between Hungarian 
and Soviet lifestyles has been 
brought painfully home to 

troops stationed in Hungary 
that bizarre transactions take 
place in the villages around 

In ^return for a radio or 
cassette recorder, Soviet sol- 
diers regularly sell petrol, 
mechanical stores and — be- 
wilderingly in a recently 
booming market — their pa- 
rade uniforms. 

This bartering only re- 
inforces the Hungarian view 
of the Russian soldiers as an 
under-developed people. The 
presence of many Mongolian 
regiments powerfully contrib- 
utes to this impression. 

In transit between different 
parts of Hungary, the Soviet 
troops are often kept waiting 
for hours at railway stations in

Budapest rather than risking 
r of a walk 

“Hungary is the first colony 
in the history of imperialism 
in which those colonized are 
more civilized and advanced 
than the colonizing power,” 
Hungarian samizdat publica- 
tions are fond of pointing out. 

The craving for Hungarian 
luxuries is apparently so 
developed among Soviet 

the “contamination

shops of the Vari Utca. 

But whatever contempt the 
Magyars feel for their uni- 
formed Soviet allies it is dear 
that even this week, when 
memories of Soviet troops will 
not be pleasant, it will be a 
brave Hungarian who refuses 
a Russian soldier a drink.

US pilot 

30 years 

in jail 

Managua (Reuter) — An 
American pilot on trial before 
a Nicaraguan tribunal yester- 
day faced the prospect of a 
possible 30-year jail sentence 
after being accused of involve- 
ment in efforts to topple the 
Sandinista Government. 

Mr Eugene Hasenfus, aged 
43, was charged on Monday 
night with “terrorism" at the 
start of his trial by a revolu- 
tionary “people’s court”. The 
Managua Justice Minister, Se- 
dor Rodrigo Reyes, said he

Mr Hasenfus was captured 
on October 6 in a Nicaraguan 
jungle a day after parachuting 
from a plane shot down by a 
Sandinist a missile while ; 
edly delivering supplies to l 
backed right-wing Contras. 

“He (Hasenfus) is an ex- 
tremely dangerous element,” a 
document presented by Senor 
Reyes said. It was read to the 
crowded court first in Spanish 
and then in English. 

“Eugene Hasenfus, in addi- 
tion to attempting to disrupt 
public security, has attempted 
to disrupt public order by 
participating with a clearly 
defined task as a crew member 
of an aircraft that transported 
arms ... destined to take 
more lives in our country," 
the document, read by the 
president of the court, Senor 
Reynaldo Monterrey, said. 
“We are seeking the maxi- 
mum penalty.'* 

Under Nicaraguan law, this 
means 30 yeans in jail. There is 
no death penalty.

panel, watched by his wife,

Twenty per cent of the

before Mrs Aquino deposed

ordered the seizure of Haci-

Tarlac province, for alleged

Unicef helps to rebuild 
the devastated minds 
of earthquake survivors 

From Paul Vallely, San Salvador 

The two women were a 
study in contrasts. The young 
one was boisterous and rather 
jolly. The older one wailed 
and held her hands to the un- 
yielding skies. 

The young woman stood, 
babbling effusively in a group 
of neighbours amid ihe debris 
of their homes in the poor 
city-centre quarter of San 
Jacinto. She shouted and 
laughed a lot. Her legs were 
covered in lacerations and 

“1 cut them digging in the 
stones of my house after the 
earthquake. 1 was hysterical,” 
she laughed. “I was looking for 
my baby.” 

Had she found it? M lt was 
dead,” she said and let out an 
enormous bellow of laughter. 
The other women laughed too. 

The older woman lived 
halfway down a remote ravine 
near the shanty town of Colo- 
nia Beatrice. She approached 
in a swell of tears and anger. 

Miss Dita Reichenberg, the 
project officer with Unicef, 
who is in El Salvador to 
establish a counselling pro- 

r nme for those traumatized 
their experiences in the 
disaster, in which more than 
1,000 people died and S2 bil- 
lion (£1.43 billion) damage 
was caused.

tens to us. The Americans say 
they are our friends but they 
do nothing. You do nothing,” 
she said, pointing accusingly. 

Her two grandchildren had 
died in a mudslide during the 
earthquake and her home had 
been reduced to a heap of 
sticks and mud. 

“Eveiyone reacts differently 
to a catastrophe like this. A 
whole range of reactions could 
be described as normal,” said 

“Adolescents may develop 
problems whh drink, drugs or 
motivation. Elderly people 
seem to develop an increased 
tendency to suicide.” 

Such were the reactions of 
many of the victims of last, 
year's earthquake in Mexico- 
Based on its experience there 
Unicef is adding a counselling 
programme to its El Salvador 
relief effort 

“We learned that there are 
basically two phases of 
psychological adjustment 
which people uodetgp,” Miss 
Reichenberg said. “In the first, 
which usually lasts seven to 10 
days, people are still in a state 
of shock; they are waiting for 
the hext earthquake. Then, 
with varying degrees of speed, 
they try to rebuild their per- 
sonal defences.” 

In Mexico, Unicef ran five 
training programmes with 180 
counsellors. More than 4,500 
patients were treated. 

She added: “The mistake we 
made in Mexico was .not 
realizing the importance of 
helping people in that first 
phase. We learned that what 
people needed in a state of 
initial shock was to talk about 
their reaction. They needed to 
be encouraged to talk.” 

The Unicef team is prepar- 
ing educational packages for 
communities which were poor 
before the earthquake. Formal 
training programmes are also 
being established. 

“Then in the second phase 
the counsellors will determine 
which people need further 
help and will draw them into 
more formal sessions of group 
therapy and role-play in which 
we try to get people to ration- 
alize their fears,” she said. 

The population of San Sal-, 
vador, meanwhile, remains in 
the first phase.

Russia urged to act on Cambodia | Turbulent 

judge dies 

Jakarta (Renter) — The 
European Community and the 
Association of South-East 
Asian Nations (Asean) said 
yesterday that the Soviet 
Union should influence Viet- 
nam to wit hdr aw its troops 
from Cambodia. 

The Irish delegate, Mr 
Ruairi Quinn, said there was 
general agreement at the two- 
day EEC-Asean ministerial 
conference which crated yes- 
terday that the strategic in- 
terests of Vietnam had to be 
recognized but not at the 
expense of Cambodia's free- 
dom and independence. 

He said the Asean states — 
Indonesia, Thailand, Malay- 

sia, the Philippines, Singapore 
and Brand — asked the EEC 
to raise the Cambodian issue 
with the Soviet Union at every 
opportunity it had. 

Mr Oman, the Irish Labonr 
and Public Service Minister, 
said the EEC fully s u pp o rted 
Asean's position on Cam- 

He said the Indonesian 
Foreign Minister, Mr Moch- 
tar KnymnafiM^j a , told the 
meeting that at the Reykjavik 
summit with President 
Reagan, Mr Mikhail Gorb- 
achov, the Soviet leader, 
acknowledged for the first 
time that Cambodia was a 
problem, albeit a minor one. 

Mr Quinn said Asean 
considered the acknowledge- 
ment a step forward in the 
search for a peaceful solution 
to the Cambodian problem. 

Asean considered Mr Gorb- 
achov's offer of improved rela- 
tions in his July policy speech 
as a dear indication of 
Moscow's desire to extend its 
influence in Asia. 

Mr Quinn said the meeting 
also touched on the presence of 
Soviet troops in Afghanistan, 
but it was felt — and accepted 
by all of — that the opportunity 
to do something about Afghan-

port and in a book bought by 
one of his friends. 

Mr Tracy's captors have so*J 
far made no demands. In a 
terse statement, they said he 
was “feeding the Mossad and 
the CIA with information, and 
spying for the CIA”. 

ited States has demanded the 
immediate release of Mr 
Tracy (Mohsin Aii writes). A 
White House spokesman said 
the allegation that he worked 
for the CIA was totally with- 
out foundation. He described 
Mr Tracy as another innocent 
victim of terrorism. 


Mr Tracy: another 
American hostage. 

Woman in the news 

‘Hawk’ tilts Israel’s Cabinet to right 

From Ian Murray, Jerusalem 

“The most expensive wo- 
man in the Knesset” has 
finally made it into the Israeli 
Cabinet, after a political career 
which stretches back to the 
year before Israel became a 
state. Her arrival at the top has 
tilted the Cabinet to the right 

Mrs Shoshana Arbcli-Alm- 
oslino is the fourth woman to 
become a Cabinet Minister in 
Israel and the first since Mrs 
Golda Meir resigned more 
than 12 years ago. She is also 
one of the more complex 
personalities in a complex 
political scene. 

A life-long Socialist, she is 
nevertheless one of the most 
hawkish supporters of the 
kind of nationalist policies 
which are championed by the 
Herat Party, whose leader, Mr 
Yitzhak Shamir, has just be- 
come Prime Minister again. 

Mrs Arbeli-Almoslino was 

university. As a student she 
joined the Jewish under- 
ground and in 1947 emigrated 
to Palestine. 

She married a senior official 
of the Histadrut labour move- 
ment and together they 
worked for a powerful politi- 
cal movement which was one 
of the key elements in the 
formation of the present La- 
bour Party. 

She was elected to the 
Knesset in 1965 and estab- 
lished herself as a tireless 
worker on behalf of social 
causes. This led to her chairing 
the labour and social affairs 
committee where her ability to 
push through legislation 
earned her the title ofthe most 
expensive woman in the 

Inside the Labour move- 
ment she had always strongly 
supported Mr Yitzhak Rabin, 

bora 59 years ago in Iraq, . but switched her loyalties to 
where she became the first Mr Shimon Peres after the 
woman from her area to go to 1981 elections. 

Mrs Arbeli-Almoslino: a 
staunch nationalist 

Her seniority should have 
meant that she could com- 
mand a Cabinet position after 
the inconclusive election of 
1984 but Mr Peres, probably 
with some relief left her out 
Despite her undoubted social- 
ist credentials her views on 
Jewish nationalism are, to say 
the least, out of tune with 
mainline party thinking. 

“We have a right to settle 

everywhere in the Land of 
Israel,” she once told a rally 
supporting illegal settlers in 
the occupied West Bank. She 
has always campaigned for 
more such settlements. 

When the Camp David 
accords were put before the 
Knesset she voted against 
them because she “saw the 
dangers of the peace treaty 
greater than the prospects”. 

During the Lebanon war she 
strongly attacked the doves 
who wanted Israel to pull out 
She has campaigned for the 
release of Jewish underground 
prisoners who have been sen- 
tenced for terrorist attacks. 

Instead of getting a Cabinet 
place she was made deputy to 
Mr MonJectiai Gur,~ the 
Health Minister; 

Mr Shamir was widely 
photographed kissing her after 
her appointment On the is- 
sues that really matterto him 
they are more than just good 

Polite Peres power handover hides bitterness 

Jerusalem — It was moving 
day at the Israeli Prime 
Minister's office yesterday 
with Mr Shimon Peres 
handing back to Mr Yitzhak 
Shamir the desk he took ova: 
from him 25 months ago when 
be became Prime Minister in 
the National Unity Govern- 
ment (Ian Murray writes). 

A polite little ceremony 
there was followed shortly 
afterwards by another polite 

little ceremony at the Foreign 
Ministry when Mr Shamir 
handed over his desk to Mr 

But the politeness stopped 
with the ceremonies. Inside 
the Foreign Ministry consid- 
erable bitterness is growing 
about the way Mr Peres is 
seen as parachuting staff into 
top positions, while an angry 
dispute is centering on Mir 
Jossy BeOin, the former Cabi- 

net Secretary, whom Mr Peres 
now wants as “political direc- 
tor-general^of the Ministry. 

Mr Peres tried to have Mr 
Beilin appointed Ambassador 
to Washington. Thwarted in 
this, he tried to have him as an 
tmelected junior foreign min- 
ister, only to be told that this 
was illegal. His latest attempt 
to find a place for his brilliant 
protege has roused the ire of 
Mr Avraham Tamir, Director- 

General at the Prime Mini- 
ster’s office, who has followed 
Mr Peres to the Foreign 
Ministry to take over as 
Director-General there. 

Mr Shamir also has his 
problems. Mr Yitzhak Modai, 
dismissed from die policy- 
making Inner Cabinet by Mr 
Peres in July, has farced his 
way bade into the Cabinet, and 
is now demanding a place in 
the Inner Cabinet. 

From Stephen Taylor 

Mr Justice Lionel Murphy, 
the turbulent judge 9 f Aus- 
tralia's High Court, died yes- 
terday of cancer after a two- 
year danse macabre with the 
law over his own conduct. 

Colleagues in the Labor 
Party paid tribute to the man 
who had been the Whitlam 
Government's attorney-gen- 
eral. Mr Bob Hawke, the 
Prime Minister, described 
him as “a great Australian and 
one of our finest jurists", and 
announced a state funeral 
service next week. 

But Mr Justice Murphy, 
who was aged 64, left un- 
resolved allegations of mis- 
conduct which saw him 
convicted and sentenced last 
year to 18 months' imprison- 
ment for attempting to pervert 
the course of justice. 

Though he was acquitted in 
April in a retrial, the scandal 
in which he was implicated 
affected other members of the 
Labor Party and public fig- 

Allegations against Mr Jus- 
tice Murphy surfaced in 1984 
and resulted in his first trial 
last year, at which a District 
Court judge and a senior 
magistrate said he had at- 
tempted to influence them 
over crirairal proceedings 
against his friend Mr Morgan 
Ryan, a Sydney solicitor. 

. Even after the retrial, the 
verification of illegally-made 
tape recordings of conversa- 
tions between Mr Justice Mur- 
phy and Mr Ryan obliged the 
Government to appoint a 
judicial inquiry 

Mr Justice Murphy refused 
to resign through all this and 
subsequently insisted on re- 
suming his place on the High 
Court bench, despite the 
known reservations of some of 
his colleagues. 

Two months ago he was 
diagnosed as having terminal 
cancer of the bowel, and the 
inquiry was wound up by the 
Government. That was fol- 
lowed by the passing of 
controversial legislation 
which made it an offence to 
publish the proceedings of the

country's capital. Phnom 
Penh and the 800-year-oki

olent protests against 19 years 
of Israeli occupation.

he French have always 
had a fondness for 


■ writers who profess 

II themselves intcHec- 

, -M tuals, whether they are 

. . . . . w not- On the other 

hand, being different, the British 
. prefer their writers not to be, 
however philosophical or high- 
minded they may happen to be in 
private life. This helps explain 
something of the difference be- 
tween most British and most 
continental fiction; the British 
have rarely produced the philo- 
sopmval novel, the serious politi- 
cal novel or the novel of aesthetic 
exactitude. What they have pro- 
duced is the writer of manv 
■ mediations, the writer who is 
party to the commonplace and 
ordinary stuff or life, the realist, 
the observer, the humorist. 

Indeed one of the things that has 
mediated social, political and 
intellectual life in Britain is its 
capacity for manifest humour. 
And this may be why one of the 
great triumphs and major plea- 
sures of the British fictional 
tradition is the comic novel: we 
have a great comic line in the 
•novel, and it still goes on. But even 
-in this matter the British taste has 
been generally for the untheo- 
'rctical. Two lineages started in the 
early days of fiction, one with 
.Henry Fielding, that voice of 

- good-humoured benevolence and 
. the maker of one of our great 

comic heroes. Tom Jones; the 
other with Laurence Sterne, who 
invented and abstracted the ami- 
novel almost before the novel 
form had begun, and so. became 
.* one of the great heroes of experi- 
.memal modernism, as well as the 
. . discoverer of comedy as a form of 
response to pain and mortality. 

In general it has been the lineage 
of Fielding that has won out. Jane 
.Austen, commonsensical as well 

- as sharply ironic, familiarizes us to 
■the difficult world of social man- 
ners. Dickens W9& a man of strong 
and exacting social ideas, but a 
great writer of the familiar and the 
popular. Joyce is. in Ulysses, a 
most remarkable comic novelist, 
the supreme parodist of text: but 

. Evelyn Waugh, fiercely and splen- 
didly prejudiced, his compassion 
nil. is surely the best 20th-centuiy 

- British comic novelist to date. His 
. fiction is darker and sharper than 
■it often seems, but like much 

modem comic writing it frankly 
..'refuses many of our most serious 
•notions of literature, and is more 
against ideas than for them. 

Indeed the ideologically or 
philosophically obsessed have 
usually seemed, in British comic 
fiction, the enemies of reality and 
' the true comic instinct — 
-•Thackum and Square in Tom 
~ Jones. the dreaming Transcen- 
dentalism in Martin Chuzzlcwit. 
and so on to Professor Welch and 
his Bloomsbury' artistic coterie in 

Ladbroke’s quote The Old Devils by Kingsley Amis as 2-1 favourite to win this year’s 
Booker Prize, to be decided tonight. In this extract from his forthcoming book of 
essays Malcolm Bradbury compares two of the greatest British humorists of the century 

W augh versus Amis 

Kingsley Amis's Lucky Jim, a 
novel that undoubtedly owed as 
much of its success to maintaining 
the 18th-century, fictional tra- 
dition as it did to providing a 
radical view of its own time, the 
■ 1950s. This is not the only place 
where Amis does homage to 
Fielding, and in British fiction he 
has been far from alone. Tom 
Jones, said' Gibbon, “may be 
considered the history of human 
nature", and the comic novel of 
human nature has long been found 
the true British way of doing 
fictional things. 

This in turn may explain how 
we treat our writers, which is not 
quite as intellectuals but as outra- 
geous observers of our institu- 
tions, mores and political 
practices. Waugh himself is one of 
the great modern examples — a 
writer of the very highest distinc- 
tion and originality, whose iras- 
cible disguises served to hide him 
from readers, strangers and much 
of the argument of the world, who 
was able to sustain at the highest 
level of arrogance a virtually 
unattainable intellectual and so- 
cial position, and in general to 
claim as.the very centre of writing 
tbe proprietorial, seigneurial 
rights of the English eccentric, 
whom it would be quite inappro- 
priate to gainsay or interrupt 

A s it happens, and as it 
often happens, 
Waugh possessed the 
highest intellectual 
qualities — a strong 
sense of history, 
which he had manoeuvred into a 
theory of a decline and fall that 
had started with the end of 
Catholic dominance in Britain 
and was now quite irredeemable; a 
high and unusual aesthetic taste, 
which could be presented as very 
proper in a gentleman; a great 
studious ness which he chose to 
call "a little learning", and 
presumably hence a dangerous 
thing, though less dangerous than 
a lot of iti and above all a 
compelling sense of style which 
could appear at once an art-form 
and a normal possession of a man 
of rank, but never, never as a 
Modernist novelty. 

When the Second Worid War 
ended. Waugh's style, shaken by 

Evelyn Waugh: “the one true Conservative" 

Kingsley Amis: “a sense of social process' 

‘Amis mocked the past and its styles... 
Waugh gained sustenance from it’ 

the experiences of wartime and the 
coming of the welfare-state world 
that followed, seemed half-spent 
His later fiction reflects a good 
deal on this break, and the 
problem of writing the tale of the 
new age of dishonour. The new 
generation of the 1950s gradually 
emerged, their air apparently puri- 
tanical and socially of the lower 
middle class, their tweedy sports 
jackets hanging badly off their 
shoulders, their mildly !eft-o£ 
centre social principles every- 
where being asserted. It was not it 
seemed to Waugh, a climate for 
his kind of writing, and he raged 
against it As for the most comi- 
cally assured of the new writers, 
Kingsley Amis, whose impact on 
the 1950s came to rival that of 
Waugh on ihe 1920s. he seemed in 
almost every respect Waugh's 

Waugh had portrayed British 
society in a state of irremediable 
historical decadence, a worid of 
social, political and sexual treach- 

ery in which a few florid inheritors 
from the past hinted at the better, 
more stable and fixed world that 
was Ming in, like the roofs of 
some of our best country houses, 
on top of us; Amis mocked the 
past and its styles and manners, 
and spoke straight from the plain 
and ordinary present Waugh had 
found in the Catholic English past 
an older history to which he could 
convert and from which be could 
gain some sustenance: Amis at- 
tacked all that was nostalgic and 
medieval izing in the British 
character, every notion of a Merrie 
England, and found his sustenance 
in the commonplace, the provin- 
cial the bottle of beer and the 

Waugh and Amis therefore 
looked like literary opposites, and 
the distinction applied equally in 
political matters. Waugh was not 
simply a writer of conservative 
instincts; he offered himself as the 
one true conservative. Amis, on 
the other hand, appeared part of 

the New Left that was emerging in 
postwar Britain, in an era when 
there was a new appeal for literary 
commitment At St John's Col- 
lege, Oxford, in 1941 he had 
indeed been an undergraduate 
communist (“the only party I have 
ever joined"), of course at a time 
when Britain and Soviet Russia 
were allies. During the 1950s he 
was announcing himself a prob- 
able lifetime Labour voter, and 
explored his Fabian allegiances in 
a pamphlet called Socialism and 
the Intellectuals (1957), a title that 
was hardly likely to go down weD 
at Combe Florey. 

Amis was also not just a striking 
novelist and a fine young poet 
writing in the way of the 
“Movement", but also an aca- 
demic. teaching English at a 
British “redbrick" Swansea, and 
writing fine and rather severe 
critical essays on which the impact 
of Lea vis and the spirit of new 
critical intensity was very appar- 
ent Thereafter, forsaking the 

“redbrick" world about which he 
had written, he went to a fellow- 
ship at Peterhouse, Cambridge, 
with every prospect of a career 
that united the academic and tbe 
literary, the critical and the cre^ 
alive fiinctions. 

None of this was in the Waugh 
' spirit, except as stuff for the 
making of satirical fiction. But in 
the event a sharp break came. 
Cambridge did not suit whether 
because of its. often backbiting 
attitude towards those with lit- 
erary ambitions, or because criti- 
cism itself was in any case being 
pushed heavily towards more 
theoretical preoccupations is not 
quite dear. It was now that Amis 
entered oh the life of the full-time 

Lucky Jim and the books that 
immediately followed were enor- 
mously successful and caught the 
temper of the times, coupling 
brilliant comic effects with a sharp 
sense of social process and even 
social protest. Arais's essays were 
forceful and accessible pieces of 
literary criticism, and he was 
dearly a central figure of the new 
“Movement" mood. But the man- 
ner was shifting, along with the 
political sympathies and the mode 
of social exploration in his work. 
Amis might well protest that it was 
the world that was changing, and 
he remaining much the same, but 
the fiction seems to record a 
different story. At any rate Amis’s 
politics moved towards the right, 
and today he defines himself as a 
non-wet and so presumably That- 
cherite Tory “with a few liberal 
bits", on hanging, homosexuality, 
abortion. But the “liberal bits" are 
only occasionally noticeable, and 
in the history of post-Orwellian 
liberalism Amis did not continue 
as a striking example of the cause. 

The writer who began to write in 
the spirit of a humanist common 
sense in a postwar time (you might 
say common sense was to tais 
world view what post- 
Heideggerian Existentialism was 
to Jean-Pa ul Sartre’s) took' on rage 
and spleen, sometimes invested 
against mortality and the human 
condition itself, as in the veiy 
good Ending Up (1974).' one of his 
deepest novels, and sometimes in 
a latter-day social ire arrayed 
against the entire modernity of the 

modern world. The writer who 
wrote compassionately in Take a 
Girl Like You ( 1 960) of the change 
in sexual and emotional manners 
became in late books like Jake’s 
Thing a notable misogynist in the 
age of feminism, and the critic 
who had admired the radical 
impact of American fiction in the 
1950s began to rage against the 
worthlessness of American 

Indeed in many ways Amis 
seemed slowly to have inherited 
the role of the Comic Bad Man of 
English Letters which Waugh had 
so powerfully sustained a genera- 
tion earlier. Now the similarities 
began to look very evident. Both 
of them had begun as spectacular 
Young Turks, and turned into 
Angry Old Men. 

B oth had captured, in 
subject and style, the 
manners, moral up- 
sets, cultural disloca- 
tions and social 
instabilities generated 
by a recent war. Both of them were 
strictly anti-romantic writers who 
carried somewhere in their work a 
secret but gradually more explicit 
nostalgia. Both revolted against 
the extremities of experimental- 
ism and the impact and signifi- 
cance of the Modern movement. 
Both darkened deeply with tbe 
years, taking on a pervasive 
awareness both of the absurdity of 
the social world and the hideous 
weight of mortality into which 
human life is born, so that their 
comedy is touched with pain. And 
both — this can certainly be said of 
Waugh, and I think we will say it 
of Amis — turned, with their 
virtues and their faults, into major 
writers whose mixture of basic 
craft, remarkable social percep- 
tion, comic vision and gift for rage 
and outrage managed to construct 
a lifetime of writing of extraor- 
dinary dimensions and decided 

It has been said that few 
contemporary comic writers can 
get free of the intonations of Amis, 
and the tradition of modern comic 
fiction in Britain has an inescap- 
able source in Waugh, who will, I 
think, be seen as one of the great 
black humorists of the century. 
Both suggest that the comic is both 
an extraordinary stylistic capacity 
and a form of human pain, and 
both indicate what I think is a very 
British way of dealing with it 
which may have striking limita- 
tions and very peculiar strengths. 
And both are difficult to write 
about as a result provoking both 
annoyance and respect, a sense of 
a talent often imperfect yet of an 
extraordinary force.

■Last night's Viewpoint 86: 
The Add Test (Central) pre- 
sented a wraparound report on 
the problem from Germany, 
Holland. Scandinavia and 
Scotland. Heavy metals dog

promise the feeds of infant

"acid episodes, even an add

ratively, licking away beneath 
our feet. 

This is beyond doubt a very 
. bad thing, but It does not come 
as a staggering shock to learn 
that the emission from power 
stations (which never looked 
all that healthy to begin with) 
is in fact very unhealthy. The 

programme suffered from hav- 
ing been pre-empted by a 
dozen colour-supplement fea-

idea it conveyed, albeit unwit-

indulge them with rather too 
free a hand. With a .perfor- 
mance as lush, robust and 
generally unsearching as Miss 
Mutter’s, they needed a tighter 
rein to prevent sagging when- 
ever the pace relaxed. 

Menuhin's reluctance to ac- 
tivate the inner nerves of the 
orchestra made Elgar's Enig- 
mas rather less than enig- 
matic. It was certainly 
refreshing to hear such affably 
warm, long paragraphing; but 
one longed for more phrases, 
more words even. It was 
satisfying io hear such fulsome 
amiphony in the strings: but 
interesting how they seemed 
to need the stimulus of wood-

to imaginative detaiL

joyed themselves in the balmy 
Indian summer of Delius's 
Paradise Garden. Anthony 
Camden's oboe and Christine 
PendriJFs cor anglais provided ' 
definition just where it was 
needed. They, and the entire 
percussion section in the El- 
gar. 'were in many ways the 
real celebrities of the evening.

Even death was blissful in 
the Seiiger Tod of Liszt's 
second Liebestraum . as tbe 
pianist propelled that and its 
first companion piece. Hohe 
Liebe . : more in the direction of 
Chopin than the Schumann of 
their poetic association. The 
lengthier Funerailles at the 
end of the programme was 
played with considerable 
musical insight as well as 
momentarily causing the pi- 
ano to raise its voice. 

Otherwise the technique of 
the flexible wrist and caressing 
fingers propelled from the 
elbow into passagework of 
beguiling chaim. with a pearly 
sheen to the tone, elicited a 
sweet simplicity in Saint- 
Saens that dared one not to

the composer “the most regal

the argument against staging 
this work) that “all words

intended to be spoken gain 
from the sight of the speaker”. 

Does the spoken reference 
to “the butcher's bloodied 
apron" gain or lose from the 
sight of that immaculately 
unsullied garment around the 
person of Mr Beynon (Denys 
Graham)? Is our enjoyment of 
the little boy’s pert observa- 
tion “He's got a nose like 
strawberries” heightened or 
diminshed by our clear view 
of Captain Cat (Gilbert 
Wynne) and his pale probos- 
cis? Even when, say, Mrs Dai- 
Bread Two (Rachel Bell) 
declares that she has “a silky 
scarlet petticoat above my 
knees", one can only respond 
that well. yes. so she has. 

it would be unfair to look 
for bravura performances in 
such an anaemic revival al- 
though Mr Wynne's account 
of the would-be uxoricide Mr 
Pugh, and Mr Graham's Rev- 
erend Hi Jenkins, are both 
worth noting: Few of the 
remaining company of seven 
work up more than a token 
Welsh accent, and the abiding 
impression, quite unexpect- 
edly. is that of kitsch.

ZZ Top 
Wembley Arena 

When they last toured Britain 
in 1 983, ZZ Top were building 
a groundswell of popular sup- 
port that came to fiiiition the 
following year when the band 
became in absentia fully 
fledged video stars. Word of 
their new show has preceded 
the current visit to such an 
extent that it has become 
tempting to take much of what 
they offer for granted. 

Certainly, the audience on 
Monday seemed to accept 
with nonchalance the prospect 
of three ageing bluesmen from 
Texas playing an extraor- 
dinary combination of Seven- 
ties boogie and Eighties hits, 
enhanced by a tour de force of 
high-tech lighting and laser 
effects. The long beards, 
matching guitars and syn- 
chronized dances are no 
longer a novelty but have 
become an institution, so 
where were the car. the girls, 
the magic of the videos? 

The trio met the daunting 
task of living up to such 
unrealistic expectations with 

their customary savoir-faire. 
Billy Gibbons and Dusty Hill 
wandered languidly forward 
in unison to begin “Got Me 
Under Pressure” while a huge 
sphinx bead shot out red and 
green pencils of laser light. 
Frank Beard sat stolidly at his 
kit, his headphones tuned in 
to click-tracks to guide the 
triggering of backing-tape se- 
quences which augmented 
newer songs like “Legs" and 
“Velcro Fly". The stage was 
set to resemble a giant facsim- 
ile of a hot-rod dashboard, 
which was later transformed 
into a space-ship console, 
following a disappearing trick 
by Hill and Beard that was not 
lit to best effect. 

Whether the hoopla was as 
good as promised or not, they 
still played with superlative 
wit and grace. That Gibbons 
could, at the end of a 10- 
month tour, still pull out the 
kind of heart-stopping solo 
that adorned “Rough Boy” 
suggests the kind of staying 
power that will ensure their 
future irrespective of most 
commercial and critical

IT COST US £15,000 


Buying life assurance can be a lot more 
expensive than you think. 

Because there’s a big difference in the 
amount of money that certain companies 
will pay you when your policy matures. 

In fact, even on a £30 per month, 
twenty five year policy, the payouts can vary 
by as much as £25,000. 

That’s why you should always ask 
about a company’s investment record 
before you commit yourself. 

At Scottish Amicable, we believe ours 
will stand up to any comparison. 

If you look at the payout tables, you’ll 
find that we’ve been one of the top com- 
panies in Britain for years. 

You’ll also see that we’ve provided 
record returns for our policyholders - 
whether they’ve had pensions, endowments 
for mortgages or savings plans. 

Any independent financial adviser 
will tell you just how good we are. 

He may also recommend one of our 
policies. It’ll only cost you a few pounds 
every month. But it'll make you thousands 
over the years.

impossible until a 
breakthrough in 
rocket technology 
breathed fresh life 
into a British project 
called HOTOL. 

Ktxth Hindley looks

a machine that could 
sheet us to the front 
of the space race 

I t may look like a flying 
cucumber, but its de- 
signers claim that their 
re-usable craft, powered 
by a revolutionary 
rock l engine, will be able to 
launch satellites seven tunes 
more cheaply than the US 
space shuttle, operate from 
norm 1 runways, and — even- 
tual! — double as a 
“supe fast" passenger airliner.

been developed by British

to caj Luring the huger part of 
the v odd's satellite launch

its be rt is a new, top secret 
Rolls- toyee power umL 
The success of the project 
also d pends on further large 
injecti ns of cash. About £4 
billion will be needed and that 
coukl never be funded by 
Britair alone. Collaboration 
with the European Space 
Agencv (ESA) is the obvious 
solution though the Ariane 
launchc s will be a powerful 
couniei claim on funds. That 
is why Roy Gibson, director 
general >f the British National 
Space Centre, will formally 
propos* a three-year study of 
advaned spaceplanes at an 
ESA mi sting today. 

The ambitious HOTOL 
scheme was born in 1982, 
when 1 \e — Europe's prin- 
cipal sa shite manufacturer — 
recogni: ;d the need for a new 
generation satellite launch ve- 
hicle to replace the expensive 
American manned space shut- 
tles and the European un- 
manned Ariane rockets 
(both of which have been 
prone jo disaster). The 
new launcher had to be 
designed for the 
commercial satellite 
market] based on the 
assumption of one sat- 
ellite launch per flight; it 
had to he reusable, cheap 
to service and require only 
a few [days stand down 
between missions. 

British Aerospace examined 
35 designs before settling on 
HOTOL as its desired un- 
manned, reusable space 
vehicle.“The best way to run a 
truly reusable launch system is 
to build small," says Bob 
Parkinson, BAe’s launch ve- 
hicle systems design manager. 
“Small vehicles are cheaper to 
build and ran. They spread 
development costs over a 
larger number of launch fees.

giving a better profit margin.” 

But there was a formidable 
obstacle to getting this small 
spaceplane into orbit in- 
sufficient fuel capacity, 
particularly for heavy liquid 
oxygen. The breakthrough 
came when Alan Bond, a 
laticr-day Barnes Wallis, de- 
signed a new rocket engine. As 

it dimbs through the at- 
mosphere. it uses oxygen from 
the air like an ordinary airliner 
and. switches to its own in- 
ternal liquid oxygen supplies 
only when the air thins at the 
edge of space. The benefits arc 
dramatic. The launcher need 
carry only a fraction of the 
liquid oxygen rockets nor- 
mally require, and the weight 

saving allows the craft to 
handle the biggest type of 

At once HOTOL leapt from 
an interesting concept to a real 
possibility. Information on 
the new Swallow rocket engine 
now being developed by Rolls- 
Royce is classified, but there is 
much speculation about how 
it works. One favoured idea is 
that liquid hydrogen fuel, 
stored at -253°C, is used to 

chill and liquefy the oxygen in 
the air entering the motor. 
After separation this is fed to 
the combustion chamber. 

HOTOL wfl] be launched 
from a laser-guided trolley. 
Off the ground it will climb at 
only 24 degrees, much more 
modest than norma! rockets. 
Nine minutes after take-off it 
will be 17 miles high, having 
burnt only 18 per cent of its 
launch weight compared with 

50 per cent for a conventional 

Manoeuvres in orbit will 
vent unused fuel and small 
engines will ignite to slow the 
cram for re-entry. By then 
HOTOL will be so light that it 
will be able to re-enter the 
atmosphere at a steep angle- 
and yet suffer temperatures of 
only 1,40000. This eliminates 
the need for expensive — and 
troublesome — ceramic tiles. 

HOTOL will have carbon 
fibre wing edges and a main 
heat shield of nickel plates 
arranged like a shingle root 

After re-entry, HOTOL’s 
air-breathing engine is de- 
signed to re-ignite and allow 
the plane to fly long distances 
before landing on a light- 
weight undercarriage. Unlike 
the US space shuttle, which 
must land unpowered first 
lime, HOTOL will be able to 
make as many landing at- 
tempts as it needs to. 

In addition to its primary 
role as a satellite launch 
vehicle, HOTOL could be 
developed as an autopQot- 
guided ferry for astronauts 
between Earth and space sta- 
tions. It could also have a 
flight deck and passenger 
cabin fitted in its payload bay 
and make direct sub-orbital 
flights to the other side of the 
world. It would make Con- 
corde look like a tortoise. 

At the moment British 
Aerospace and Rolls-Royce 
are a year into a £3 million 
two-year study to test innova- 

tions in the HOTOL design. 
The aerodynamics are being 
checked on 8ft-long wind tun- 
nel models at Wharton, near 
Preston. BAe says it involves 
only “marginal development" 
of current supersonic aircraft 

The roost important proof- 
of-concept work, however, is 
being done by RoflsrRoyce on 
the Swallow engine, the 
performance of which, it is 
claimed, derives from “the 
judicious exploitation of 
turbomachinery" and does 
not involve startling new 
developments. The company 
is laboratory testing all “the 
crucial bits of design" and is 
more than 80 per cent certain 
that the engine will work. 

Once die hardware is 
proven and the cash is found, 
a prototype can be builL If the 
project takes off - and there 
are high hopes that it will — 
BAe believes that a fleet of 
eight HOTOL launchers could 
successfully compete for 80 
per cent of the multi-billion- 
pound satellite launch market. 

Flight to freedom and fight for success 

I t began on October 23, 
1956, with the siege of the 
Budapest radio building 
and the toppling of a 26ft 
statue of Statin, which was cut 
off above the boots. A “Rus- 
sians Oat" movement spread 
through Hungary, and two 
weeks later 5,000 Russian 
tanks were rolling back to 
attack Budapest and other 
cities with 200.000 troops. 

A shocked and impotent 
w orld watched as the freedom 
fighters woe shot down and 
200.000 Hungarians fled their 
country. Some 20,000 came to 
Britain. Thirty years later 
nest of them are still here and 
proclaim themselves for the 
most part patriotically British. 

Very few failed to fit m. 
Hungary has been oppressed 
ftir so much of its history that 
resilient self-reliance Is a na- 
tional survival instinct. 

Most of them came out very 
young, but they can ail remem- 

ber the trauma. “We walked 
for a whole day and a night to 
get to the border through no- 
raan's-Uutd", recalled Anna 
Arid, who was 13 at the time. 
“My father waded into the 
freezing canals to carry my 
sister and me across. We were 
frozen and frightened. Von

The uprising in 
Hungary that 
began 30 years ago 
this week left 
20,000 refugees on 
British soil. How 
have they fared? 

Anna found herself in a Bed- 
fordshire village school, wear- 
ing clothes that had belonged 
to tiie local children: “My 
sister and I had no friends. It 
takes six months to have 
enough vocabulary to make 
friends. At weekends we cried 
with homesickness." 

Stephen Barlay. a radio 
reporter, aged 26 and jnst 
married, was smuggled oat of 
Budapest with Ms wife in an 
ambulance. Here, when he 
could not find his identity 
papers, he was astonished that 
a British official took bis 
word: “It was the first time in 
my life that somebody had 
believed me without my 
producing papers to prove ft."

Mityas SarkoB, had gained 
their idea of Expand from 
reading Dickens at school 
Appropriately they arrived hi 
a fog and in some cases had a 
Dickensian reception at a 
workhouse, a former prism 
camp or Dover Barracks, but 
Mr Barlay was also given a 
Dickensian Christmas dinner 
by a probation officer who 
invited five Hungarians home. 

Many Hungarians wanted 
to get away from Europe 
altogether and start afresh 
across the Atlantic, but the 
United States quota was only 
40,000, and Britain took more 
proportionately for its size. 
Many of those who settled 
hoe had to take first jobs far 
below their capacity because of

Hungarian Society in Croy- 
don, one of eight about the 
country, but there are no 
Hungarian ghettos: “We have

work. I don't know any

‘It’s a tragedy our talks failed 













• After years of what Rupert Murdoch was to call 
“emotionally draining 9 * talks over the new Wapping 
plant, News International and the print unions were 
reaching a crunch point by September last year. 
There were to be many more attempts to find a for- 
mula, bnt the print onions refused to accept key 
conditons, including legally-binding no-strike 
agreements. Eventually this led, in January, to a 
strike, as a consequence of which 5,500 employees 
were sacked for breach of contract. 

• In this third extract from The End of the Street, 
Linda Melvem’s independent account of the 
dispute's origins, she focuses on two of the key 
meetings, starting with the one on September 30 at 
which Rupert Murdoch set a three-month deadline 
for a settlement

makes clear in a foreword, and we do not

Part 3: The crunch 


Iasi meeting between News International and the onions: Tbe company negotiators included, from right. BID O'Neill, Rupert Murdoch, Bruce Matthews (obscared)

SEPTEMBER 30, 1985 

When the general secretaries of the 
five main newspaper unions ar- 
rived at the Inn on the Park Hotel 
they were desperate for informa- 
tion. Their suspicions were grow- 
ing about what was happening at 
Wapping. They- knew the presses 
had been running and that 
'dummy' newspapers had been 
printed there. 

But when Rupert Murdoch 
entered the room there was no 
lime to ask him anything. He 
immediately .began reading from a 
four-page document which made 
it clear he was at the end of his 
tether. Fleet Street working prac- 
tices, he said, were “a disgrace to 
us all." Disruptions had cost 
several tens of millions of pounds, 
“sometimes nearly bringing our 
whole company down." 

In spite of that, he had under- 
taken a major, expensive building 
programme at Tower Hamlets, 
“When the costs of our plant in 
Glasgow are added, there will be 
little change from £100 million." 
And when negotiations over 
Wapping had started, the unions 
had presented “claims for man- 
ning levels and work practices 
which would have meant an actual 

financial penalty for moving into 
this great new plant" 

They (the company) had sat- 
isfied themselves that there was an 
opportunity for another evening 
newspaper* in London which 
might quickly become a 24-hour 
daily, and so in the spring he had 
hired an independent company. 
Computer Print Consultants, to 
help make Tower Hamlets an 
economic and efficient base for 
publishing the London Post. 

Referring to Eddy Shah's Today 
and other projects. Murdoch said 
they would be competing with 
“the overwhelming advantages of 
modem technology and one- 
• no-strike agreements," He 

ih is competition, while not 
major threat" demonstrated 
cu that other publishers and 

con ponies were willing to move 
into their markets. “We cannot 
stand aside and allow our markets 
to be captured. If we cannot 
compete with our present titles, as 
seems the case, we must start new 
ones. And be first" 

Then Murdoch softened his 
approach: “Because many of us 
have known each other for many 
years and have learnt to appreciate 
each other's difficulties, 1 have 
told you where we stand. I wish 


that our earlier negotiations had 
been more fruitful. It is a tragedy 
for your members that they were 

Murdoch said he still wanted to 
print the News of the World and 
the Sun at Wappping. as well as 
producing the Post, “in one inte- 
grated operation.'' But it was 
difficult to see any point in going 
through another series of long, 
unpleasant and emotionally drain- 
ing negotiations with so little 
prospect of success. 

Murdoch said that if talks on 
manning the Post made good 
progress, they would be extended 
to include the transfer of the The 
Su/t and News of the World to 
Wapping as well. “The music has 
changed," he told Brenda Dean of 
Sogat at one point, “but the dance 
has not" Murdoch insisted on a 
tight deadline for talks; he said the 
deadline had been set by Eddy 
Shah, not him, and he gave the 
unions three months — until 

When the general secretaries left 
the Inn on the Park that day. they 
felt reassured. They believed there 
would be some serious negotiating 
about the Post in the coming 
months. They thought this was a 
new beginning

Between mid-October and Christ- 
mas last vear, when Murdoch ’s 
deadline for agreement expired, 
there were 32 meetings between 
Nen*s International negotiators, 
led by Bill O'Neill, Murdoch's vice- 
president for personnel and labour 
relations,' and die unions to discuss 
conditions for the London Post. 
These talks foundered on the 
unions' refused to accept no-strike, 
legally binding agreements and the 
abolition of the closed shop. At the 
end of December the unions re- 
sponded by making claims for 
lifetime guarantees of employment 
and indexation of wages at Gray's- 
Inn Road (The Times. The Sunday 
Times) and Bouverie Street (The 
Sun. News of the World). On 
January 13 this year. Sogat and 
the N<3A began balloting their 
members on the issue of "jobs for 
life", with a recommendation for a 
"yes" vote for strike action. Sogat 
issued an 1 1-page document with 
the recommendation, in which 
Brenda Dean warned members 
that if they did strike, they would 
be in breach of contract (and 
therefore liable to dismissal). At 
the same time, the Murdoch 
companies gave six months notice 
of their intention to terminate the 
collective agreements with the 
chapels agreements, in line with 
the terms of those agreements 
(journalists were excluded). On 
Wednesday January 22. the two 
largest unions announced the bal- 
lot result — both voted to strike. 
Sogat by five to one. the NGA by 
nearly eight to one. Later the same 
doy, Murdoch, in what he called a 
"final appeal", sent a letter to all 
his employees, saying (hat for five 
years, through "consultation and 
scores of meetings" he had "tried 
to find a wav of bringing Tower 
Hamlets into production." And 
that morning he had told the 
unions, through the conciliation 
service Acas. that " our door is still 
open for talks on Grays Inn Road 
and Bouverie Street ... I want us 
to continue to produce our titles at 
both the existing plants at the same 
time as we see our needed expan- 
sion going ahead at Tower 
Hamlets. " On January 23. Mur- 
doch and the unions met formally 
for the last lime before the strike. 
The book continues: - 


They assembled quietly that 
morning in a room at the Park 
Lane Hotel, Piccadilly. Rupert 
Murdoch shook hands with each 
of the union officials, followed in 
turn by his executives. There was 
none of the usual small talk, just 
•good mornings.’ Murdoch sat 
with a glass of water at one hand. 
Polo mints at the other. Brenda 
Dean, leader of Sogat ’82. sat 
opposite him. She appeared cool 
and collected as even only later 
would she recall her unease. 

After years of bitter negotia- 
tions. both sides knew the crunch 
had come. The mood was sombre. 
There was just one half-hearted 
attempt, early on. to lighten it 
when Murdoch allowed news 
photographers into the room. 

“What about the mirrors^ said 
Bill Gillespie, managing director 
of Times Newspapers, who was 
worried about flashbulb reflection 
in the ornate room. 

“Come on. Bill" laughed Dean, 
“>ou can’t exclude the Mirror." 

Ten days before the meeting 
Murdoch had given six months 
notice of his intention to ter- 
minate union agreements cover- 
ing 5.500 production workers at 
His four British titles. The Na- 
tional Union of Journalists had 

‘We are going into the 
likes of which we have 
never seen before’ 


been exempted and Murdoch said 
he was “surprised" to see Harry 
’ Conroy. NUJ general secretary, at 
the meeting. 

Murdoch began by saying that 
nothing could be gained by going 
over old ground. They were not 
there to talk about Wapping. But 
Wapping was all the union leaders 
wanted to talk about and they 
were armed that day with what 
was traditionally regarded as their 
most powerful weapon: a mandate 
for industrial action. The issue 
they had chosen for the strike 
ballot was a guarantee of jobs for 
life, with no compulsory redun- 
dancies if the Murdoch papers 
moved to Wapping. 

Dean had entered tbe room 
believing she had more chance 
than anyone of pulling them back 
from the brink. A company exec- 
utive had told her recently that 
Murdoch respected her; the atti- 
tude was: “what’s a nice girl tike 
you doing mixed up with this lot?" 

At the meeting, Tony Dubbins, 
general secretary of the National 
Graphical Association (NGA) ar- 
gued that before any of the titles 
could be printed elsewhere, there 
had to be agreement with the 
unions. "It's all too late" Murdoch 
said, “it's no good coming to me 

The next few minutes were 
historic. Dean, speaking slowly, 
surrendered the power of foe Fleet 
Street chapels. She conceded, 
under a plan worked out with the 
other unions, the management's 
right to. manage, prohibition of 
wildcat strikes, binding arbitra- 
tion. and ballots before strikes. 

It was the unions' olive branch. . 
To their utter amazement, Mur- 
doch dismissed it “If this had 
come three months ago the answer 
might have been yes," he said. 

Bill O’Neill, sitting next . to 
Murdoch, was his global industrial 
troubleshooter. He viewed coming 
to London for talks with the 
unions like being sent back into 
the trenches. Negotiating any- 
where was easier than Britain — in 
Chicago they had just had their 
first strike for 47 years, in Boston 
there hadn't been one since before 
the war. O’Neill would say of 
London: “I guess some people 
here follow football some collect 
stamps and some become chapel 

Suddenly Murdoch delivered 
his bombshell “It's too late for 
Tower Hamlets. Gray’s Inn Road 
and Bouverie Street will have 
reduced manning, we will employ 
some hundreds of your 

“Christ." thought Conroy. 

There was an adjournment, 
during which Murdoch told 
reporters the talks had been “quite 
lively . . . pretty vigorous." He 
did not think the unions were in 
the mood to go very for. but “we 
will see. We are not going to lie 
down and play dead." 

Murdoch returned to the room: 
Dean had two offers for him — she 
would negotiate a deal for 
Wapping and she would negotiate 
on the basis of an earlier TUC 
seven-point plan. “1 reject any 
recognition for your members at 

Tower Hamlets." Murdoch 

The room was silent Murdoch 
put his hands on the table. and 
pushed back his chair. At that 
moment the talks broke down. 

All Dean said publicly after the 
meeting was that everything pot to 
Murdoch had been rejected. Pri- 
vately, she said later “We are 
going into tbe likes of which we 
have never seen before." 

Bill Miles of Sogat said Mur- 
doch had miscalculated. He be- 
lieved that if there was a dispute it 
would be short-lived. The com- 
pany would be bade negotiating, 
sooner rather than later. 

Tony Dubbms and Harry 
Conroy, who had been- firm 
friends for a long time, went to the 
nearest pub for a pint. Dubbins 
was shocked at Murdoch's audac- 
ity. “We had given him an olive 
branch and he’d broken it in two 

and beaten us round the head with 

Both men knew Murdoch could 
produce newspapers at Wapping 
but they thought they could bank 
on him being unable to prirt the 
massive 4.S million copies com- 
bined of the Sun and The Times. 
Even if he could print he vould 
have great difficulty with Sogat’s 
members who helped with dis- 
tribution — this was the key.. 

Conroy wondered how much 
support to expect from his own 
members, the journalists; He 
knew Murdoch would not be able 
to operate at Wapping without 
them. They had been instructed 
not to cooperate; But Conroy 
could not predict how they would 
behave; Dubbins thought -they 
would hold fast, particularly those 
at The Times and Sunday Times. 

Murdoch had left the hotel 
through the back entrance with 
two of his bodyguards. After lunch 
be went straight to Wapping, 
where in the past few weeks— in a 
Murdoch imitation- — the- 
catchphrase had become: Bloody 
exciting, ain’t it? Bloody exciting.

of crime 

Someone becomes a casualty of crime 
every 20 seconds, but until recently 
society has often ignored the sufferers. 
Liz Gill reports on new measures to 
turn statistics into survivors 

Victims of crime are coming 
in from the cold. In the run-up 
to a general election poli- 
ticians are jostling to show 
who cares the most Labour 
started the bandwagon rolling 
two weeks ago when Gerald 
Kaufman promised more help 
for victims from his party. 
Days later, the Government 
announced a plan to give the 
casualties a legal right to 
criminal injuries compensa- 
tion and pledged £9 million 
over the next three years to 
victim support schemes. 

Such concent is not before 
time. A new victim of crime is 

‘Someone does 
care. Here is 
- the lifeboat 9 

created every 2Q seconds. But 
until now support groups have 
received a mere £1.2 million a 
year — a paltry part of the £2 
billion budget spent on judg- 
ing, jailing and rehabilitating 
the criminal 

Despite such financial con- 
straints. however, victim sup- 
port is one of the fastest 
growing voluntary sectors in 
the country, constantly striv- 
ing for new ways to tackle the 
human realities behind the 
horrifying statistics. The latest 
development comes with the 
opening of a special room in a 
quiet corner of Cardiff where 
amid pastel wails, potted 
plants and pink lampshades 
those who have been burgled, 
battered, raped, assaulted and 
abused can start picking up 
the pieces or their lives again. 

TheCrimestress unit, as it is 
called, is being closely 
watched by the 300 other 
support schemes across the 
country as a signpost to the 
future. Martin Wright, 
information officer of the 
National Association of Vic- 
tim Support Schemes, said: 
“What makes this unique is 
the fact that they can offer 
neutral territory round the 
clock. People frequently need 
to get away from their homes

From .-I. If’. Fouler. F.R.C.S., 
Liichard Rise. Bridgend, 

Mid Glamorgan 
Mrs A. Austin (Talkback, 
Monday Page, October 13) 
deplores the fact that only 2 
per cent of British women are 
receiving hormone replace- 
ment therapy for the meno- 
pause. Has she considered 
that tins may be due to the 
fact that the vast majority of 
women instinctively feel that 
any interference with the 
pkysiotogkal state is unwise 
and that treatment should be 
limited to those who have 
patbofopad symptoms? 

Regrettably, the medical 
profession is not always as 
enlightened as the general 
public in accepting the role 
that in die absence of disease, 
it is not possible to procure 

any lasting improvement in 

the quality of lift by changing 
the function of the body, and 
that any attempt to do so will 
be harmful 

either because it is the scene of 
the crime or .because they 
don't fool they can talk freely 
in front of their families. They 
might feel they can't let their 
hair down and show any 

“The other attraction is the 
opportunity for sdf-refemd, 
and the idea that the unit gets 
known and people can contact 
it directly. Most referrals 
come through the police but 
that system has various dis- 
advantages, including the fact 
that not all crime gets reported 
in the first place.” 

Crimestress. a logical 
development of four years* 
victim support work in that 
part of Wales, has been care- 
fully thought ouL It is no 
coincidence that it is in an old 
house m the grounds of St 
David's Hospital (authori- 
tative yet non-partisan terri- 
tory). nor that it has been 
designed to be as soothing and 
serene and physically comfort- 
ing as possible. All the furnish- 
ings have been donated by a 
department store in the city 
but the actual decorating and 
painting was done by offend- 
ers on community service 

Its co-ordinator Philip Cole 
sums up its importance thus: 

Wandy HcKe 

“It has a symbolic value, it's a 
sign of a caring society.” 

That feeling of society not 
caring, of indifference to their 
plight, is one of the most 
common responses of victims. 
“People feel totally isolated. 
What this is saying is that 
someone does care. Here is the 

■ “You see, the criminal has a 

lot of rights, which is as it 
should be, but the victims 
have virtually none. From the 
moment they go to the police 
station — where the offender 
has a statutory right to make a 
phone call from that station 
but the victim doesn't — right 
through to the trial and after, 
the system gives priority to the 

Victims’ experiences — 
starting with the crime itself 
but often exacerbated by what 
follows — can lead to an 
extraordinary range of emo- 
tional and physical suffering: 
shaking, shivering, insomnia, 
feeling dazed or unreal agora- 
phobia, nausea, overwhelm- 
ing anger, indignation, 
confusion, and helplessness. 

Such symptoms may last for 
weeks or months. Sometimes 
they last for years. The 
devastation can be out of all 
proportion to the crime itself 
Community policeman 
Inspector Mike' Stevens, one 
of the key figures behind 
Crimestress. recalls a couple 
of classic examples. , “A 
woman had her clothes line 
stolen. That seems nothing, 
does it. but that woman was a 
single parent with three kids 
and the thief took all the 
clothes they had so the kids 
couldn't go oul 
“We had one old lady who 
had a burglary followed by an 
attempted burglary. She had 
lived in that street for SO years 
but suddenly she couldn't bear 
it any more. She's sold up and 

‘People speak of a 
sense of violation, 
of being soiled 9 

moved to another pan of 
town. She doesn't know any- 
body. she's not happy, her life 
has been spoiled.” 

The legacy of a burglary can 
be the complete upheaval of a . 
person's life. “People, indud- ’ 
ing men. constantly speak of a. 
sense of violation, of being 
soiled. After all your home is 
your castle. It's unbearable not 
to be safe there:” 

A common reaction* is to 
flee a previously much-loved 
home. Another is to sell 
remaining possessions “so 
there'll be nothing left to 
steal". Some become obses- 
sive cleaners to remove the 
stain .of intrusion. 

A couple recovering ax dif- 
ferent rates can put an im- 
mense strain on a marriage. 
The effect on children, either 
directly from the crime or 
because they're absorbing the 
distress of their parents, is 
only now just starting to be 
charted, but already disturb- 
ing evidence is being uncov- 
ered of bed-wetting, nail- 
biting . terrors of the dark, of 
going upstairs, of sleeping

After the outrage, the resentment 

Margaret Kreps sits in the peace of her 
own kitchen on a light antnmn 
morning. The radio is on, the washing 
op long since done, everything neat 
and tidy. She looks around and feels 
secure — more or less. Decorative 
security grilles adorn windows re- 
inforced by steel frames. 

Bat life after violence is much more 
complicated than 47-year-old Mrs 
Kreps imagined. Six months ago she 
was attacked in her home by three 
young men looking for money; four 
months ago the case came to court; two 
months ago one of her attackers was 
given 21 months in prison. 

“It's only recently that F*e become 
so angry about everything — it’s such 
an impotent feeling, this rage,” she 
says. “The sentence belittles the crime 

and it belittles me. Justice seems to be 
on the defendant’s side. 

“I was typing on the third floor of 
the boose, and I didn’t hear these guys 
come in. There was a bang in the halL I 
thought it was my son home from 
school early. I called out *hello*and got 
no reply as 1 walked downstairs. 

“The three of them were standing 
there. I said something like 'Who are 
you and what do yon want?* and got no 

“I made a dash to the front door and 
started to shoot very loudly. But of 
coarse no one heard. Then one thug 
dragged me into the hall and we 
started to fight. I really did put up 
quite a fight for quite a long time. 

“He opened the s itting room door, 
threw me in, jumped on- top of me. 1 

thought 'Oh my God, I'm going to be 
raped*. Then somebody said ‘where’s 
the money?' 1 said there was some in 
the dining room, thnng h there wasn’t 
Then he got me by the hair and threw 
me down the steps. He was punching 
me, furious at finding no money. I bit 
his finger hard and be punched me on 
the back of the head. I thought I was 
going to pass out 

“1 said, ‘My handbag is there, now 
will you take that and get the bell out 
of here.* One emptied it over the table 
and took my money. I was pulled up 
into the hall by the arms and I saw 
them taking my stereo and video. Then 
I was thrown into the sitting room and 
out they went 

“I gave them just a second and then 
called to my neighbour, but she wasn't 

there. I went to the side gate thinking 1 
might catch their car number, expect- 
ing the car to be at the end of the road, 
bat they were sitting in it outside. 

“By then 1 was bleeding and in quite 
a state. They were just sitting out there 
chatting. They saw me me peeping, 
then one jumped out and kicked me 
and they drove away at speed. 

“I managed to ring 999. 1 waited 25 
minutes for the police to come and it 
was our local hobby who rang the bell 
and said T understand you've had a 
handbag nicked, love.' 

“It's made me more aware, more 
security-consdoas in my home. Bat 
now I’m quite frightened of being alone 
in the house.”

What does a man 
need to attract the 
perfect mate? Short 
fingernails, an evil 
streak and £65, says 
the author ofa most 
un usual book . . . 

M argaret Kent saw my 
problem in a trice: 
The reason I wasn't 
married to a superior woman, 
she said, was that firstly I was 
ioo nice, and secondly 1 wasn't 
memorable. Where women 
are concerned, she says, the 
nice guys finish last. And. to 
be memorable, you mustn't be 
3 fraid of being criticaL 
"Joan Collins walks 
through that door, you go up 
to her and say. ‘OK, honey, 
you're quite pretty but 1 was 
expecting someone younger. 
That'll get her eyebrows up. 
Get her eyebrows up and my 
head cleaved open. 1 should 
think, but I was far too nice 
and forgettable to say that. 

This sort of advice will be 
available to us all when Mar - 

? arct Kent brings her book, 
fine to Marry' a Superior 
Woman, to Britain. She pub- 
lished it herself in America, as 
companion volume to HO*' to 
Mam the Man of Your 
Choice. If £65 sounds expen- 
sive. you have to remember 

Rob Mnkwator 

Good companions: Margaret Kent and her husband Robert 

that it also entitles you to a 15- 
minute chat on the telephone 
with the author, and a refund 
if you haven't found a mate 
within four years. 

She was in London with her 
husband and co-author Rob- 
ert. Indeed, you might also say 
companion volume. They are 
both in their mid-forties, 
around 6ft talL weigh more 
than 14 stone and they are 
both lawyers from Florida. 
The books are the outcome of 
16 years of running courses on 
how to snare a mate. Margaret 
offered the same money-back 
guarantee at the start and she 
never once bad to pay oul 

She discussed what makes a 
superior woman and where to 
find her. The answer to the 
first is. amazingly, her mind: 
and among the places you will 
find her are airport waiting 
rooms, libraries and super- 

W hai you then do is 
interview her, and 
Mrs Kent suggests 
some questions that I must 
confess I have altogether over- 
looked in my clumsy court- 
ships. She suggests you ask: 
“Have you ever lived pre- 
viously on earth?” and. even 
more alarming. “Can you 

communicate directly with a 
supreme being?” 

If the answer is “Yes” to 
those, at least it should re- 
move any doubts you have 
about her superiority. You are 
probably dealing with a female 
Time Lord. 

How do you attract this rare 
creature? Well Margaret has a 
few ideas on that. Don’t wear a 
tartan suit - women don’t like 
them. Avoid punk hair-styles 
and try instead to make your 
hair look inviting to tousle. 
Do not have long fingernails 
since this suggests you may be 
reluctant to do household 
tasks. Missing teeth, she tells 
us. are a definite turn-off — a 
tip which in itself is worth £65. 

Her tips on manners are 
equally worthwhile. In the 
restaurant, she says, eat only 
the food on your own plate. 
Use the fork for pie and the 
spoon for soup, rather than 
the other way round. She also 
suggests we should guard 
against licking our plates and 

In courtship. Margaret Kent 
recommends the masterful 
role. If men hesitate to criti- 
cize. women only think they 
are stupid. And if the woman 
retaliates, she suggests a useful 
riposte might be: “In spite of 
your childish antics, I am 
stuck on you”. Oh yes, and 
pay no attention to your 
woman if she is angry before 
dinner she is merely hungry. 

“You know wfaai English 

women are always saying? 
‘He’d make a wonderful hus- 
band but not for me'. You 
guys are too nice and women 
don't like that In America 
when we talk about the su- 
perior woman, the name of 
Margaret Thatcher often 
comes up. But if she wasn't 
married, how many British 
men would dare to approach 
her for a date?” 

1 couldn't answer that It 
sounded like a quick way 
to get missing teeth which, 
as we ail know, are a turn-off. 

“That's the trouble,” she 
went on. “You're very brave 
in business but when it comes 
to a superior woman, you guys 
are pimply 15-year-old kids 
again. Men always make 
unfavourable comparisons for 
themselves. They say they're 
not as rich as Onassis instead 
of concentrating on the two

feeling its way.

can be done on a modest level 
to improve the victims' lot, 
such as providing a private 
room for them on court 
premises or removing the' rule 
that says you can’t have your 
property back until 1 the case is 

A more radical step would 
be the introduction into court 
of a fell report on the effects 
on the victim. 

“A judge calls for reports on 
the offender before he passes 
sentence, so something similar 
should be done on the victim. 
And that should be taken into 
account when sentence is 

“Victims who’ve had to be 
witnesses often feel it’s they 
who have been on trial When 
a defendant is fighting for his 
liberty he can say what he 
likes, and so be should, but 
often the effect on the victims 
is devastating — and they’re 
just expected to cany on.”

Noises from 

The former Liberal leader. Jeremy 
Thorpe, has broken ihe seven-year 
political silence he has maintained 
since losing his North Devon seal 
in the wake of the Norman Scott 
scandal. In two letters, an inter- 
view given to local papers, and 
another interview on the regional 
BBC television station. Thorpe 
has been attacking his Conser- 
vative successor in the seat. Tony 
Speller, for supporting govern- 
ment measures which he says have 
reduced ihe constituency he repre- 
sented for 20 years to “a Tory 
backwater”. Speller, denying the 
charges, thinks Thorpe’s re-emer- 
gence could be an attempt to get a 
seat in the House of Lords or to re- 
place the existing North Devon 
Liberal candidate and fight the 
next election. A. puzzled Thorpe 
tells me: “I don't understand how 
you get to the House of Lords by 
making a noise in North Devon.” 
As for the second notion: ‘’Un- 
likely in the extreme." The simple 
reason for his outspokenness, he 
says, is that he is “extremely angry 
that Noiih Devon's development 
status was removed by the Tories 
after 25 years". 

Balancing act 

BBC television journalists — 
gloomy after Panorama's court- 
room debacle yesterday — say it 
would be unwise of Central Office 
to use the reporter involved, 
Michael Cockerell, as a a example 
of “Trots at the Beeb". Back in 
1975. Cockerell made the first 
Panorama to investigate Labour's 
Militant Tendency. Entitled 
“Cuckoos in the Nest" the report 
was roundly condemned by both 
Denis Healey and Michael Foot 
Last year he made the This Week.

attempts lo unseat Robert Kilroy-

by the threatened moderate MP. 
What is more, Cockerell is mar- 
ried to Bridget Heatbcoat-Amory, 
sister of the Tory MP for Wells. 


Peter Carter-Ruck, the libel lawyer 
most feared by Fleet Street

ging his win in the Panorama case

plaintiffs. Gerald Howarth and 
Neil Hamilton. Carter-Ruck 
added a postscript reminding all 
those in court to whom he handed 
out copies just whose firin it was 
that represented the Tory MPs. 
On a separate sheet he added a 
personal statement beginning: 
“Perhaps better than anyone I 
have witnessed the distress and 
worry this dreadful Panorama 
programme caused my 
clients. . . " I do not recall such 
self-publicity when his former 
client. Derek Jameson, came 
hopelessly unstuck when suing the 
BBC for libel two years ago.

As Parliament assembles and 
conference euphoria subsides, 
then? is a welcome new sense of 
direction in the government. But 
“new initiatives" are no substitute 
for a real strategy to arrest our 
relative economic decline. 

Can decline be halted, perhaps 
even reversed? On the evidence of 
recent weeks, the answer must be 
— not a chance. The choices on 
offer after the next election seem 
to be: high spending and early 
financial collapse; good house- 
keeping and continued relative 
decline; or some unworkable com- 
promise between the two. 

Those who believe that the 
choice is between tax cuts on the 
one hand and better public ser- 
vices and more jobs on the other 
still do not grasp the chicken-and- 
egg nature of the problem. Higher 
spending will increase the tax 
burden, which will thus reduce the 
relative competitiveness and 
adaptability of the economy and 
so weaken its capacity to grow and 
generate jobs and tax revenues. 

The view is gaining ground that 
lower taxes are crucial for eco- 
nomic growth, whether or not they 
are electorally popular. Japan and 
the new industrializing economies 
of the Far East are forcing die 
Organization for Economic Co- 
operation and Development, the 
World Bank and Western policy- 
makers into a complete re- 
appraisal — of which the latest 
proposals for US tax reductions 
are the most dramatic evidence so 
far, and may soon be emulated by 
other Western economies, such as 
West Germany’s. 

But the debate in Britain re- 
mains confused and the direction 
of policy uncertain. Because no 
one can see how to reduce 
spending, people talk of reform of 
the tax system, rather than tax

reduction. This leads to piecemeal 
and inconsistent proposals. 

For example, it is argued that 
the damaging distortions caused 
by mortgage interest relief should 
be removed, not by its extension 
lo other interest payments, but by 
abolition of the relief itself. But 
abolition ( even if it were desirable) 
turns out to be politically imprac- 
ticable because high tax rates 
mean that the “losers" have to 
lose so much. Reform by exten- 
sion is similarly impossible be- 
cause die revenue cost is too high. 

On grounds of policy and 
practicality the only way to radical 
tax reform is via reduction, and 
tax reduction is itself the most 
important objective. But since it 
appears impossible to reduce gov- 
ernment spending, it appears 
impossible to reduce tax. So the 
debate runs into the sand. Nothing 
can be done about spending, so 
nothing can be done about the tax 
burden, so nothing can be done 
about tax reform. . 

The debate fizzles out because 
the key to the problem — the 
future of the welfare state — is too 
sensitive to be talked about in 
public. The government has made 

it dear that health and social 
security are “no-go" areas for 
policy purposes. It is believed that 
the British love the welfare state in 
its present form and it must be left 
untouched, whatever the long- 
term consequences. Those con- 
sequences may indude continued 
relative or even absolute eco- 
nomic decline — tough luck for the 
welfare state's future dependents. 

Britain's welfare state represents 
the nationalization of about 
£75 billion of what, for most 
people, should have been private 
spending; about a quarter of GDP, 
or £3.600 a year per household. 

The huge businesses of social 
security, the NHS and education 
are managed by public servants 
lacking business experience, with- 
out prices, competition or share- 
holder pressure. No matter how 
dedicated the staffs may be, the 
inevitable consequences are 
under-investment, misaliocation 
of resources, low morale and 
customer dissatisfaction. 

To talk of new “management 
initiatives" to make such in- 
dustries function effectively is 
delusion. Even if this were pos- 
sible, the central problem would 

remain. As long as £75 billion 
worth of goods and services is 
provided "free" each year and 
paid for out of tax revenue, it will 
not be possible to make the tax 
reductions the economy needs. 

To break out of this box, the 
Institute of Directors recently 
published Business Leaders * 
Manifesto sets out a programme 
for privatizing £25 billion of an- 
nual welfare spending at current 
prices by 1990: and over the same 
period reducing income tax to a 19 
per cent basic rale and 36 per cent 
top rate: with a continuation of 
this process to give a uniform rate 
of 10 per cent for income tax, 
corporation tax and VAT by 1 997. 

Such a programme would not of 
itself produce a British economic 
miracle, but it may now be a 
precondition for one. It would, 
however, involve many of the 
things we've all been taught to 
sneer at compulsory health insur- 
ance. selective social security, 
education credits and, above aU, 

It would be bitterly resisted by 
all those who have a vested 
professional interest in showing 
that it is impossible. If it is 
impossible — or is made impos- 
sible — then . tbe miracle is 
probably impossible too. 

Tbe privatization of welfare is 
the opposite of “cuts”. Nor does it 
mean “the. dismantling of the 
welfare state" — which, un- 
reformed, is likely to start dis- 
mantling itself in the end. It is 
designed to help good schools and 
good hospitals prosper; to make 
more money, not (ess, available 
for the growth of these privatized 
services; and to provide a much 
better safety net for those who 
really need it , .

Michael Hornsby on Natal’s bid for ‘one man, one vote’ independence 

Indaba against apartheid 


Over the past six and a half 
months, as the international sanc- 
tions noose has tightened round 
Pretoria'a neck and the battle lines 
between President P. W. Botha 
and his domestic black opponents 
have hardened, a small candle of 
reason and sanity has been kept 
alight in Durban, the great port 
city of Natal. 

In the council chamber of the 
ornate city hall, delegates from 37 
organizations, representing all 
race groups, have been meeting on 
average once a fortnight since 
April 3 to devise a working model 
for a form of majority rule. This 
running conference has been 
dubbed the Natal indaba (the Zulu 
word for a tribal assembly). 

On July 11 it was able to 
announce that it had achieved its 
first objective: the adoption of a 
bid of rights which should, it is 
intended, become part of the 
constitution of a new racially 
integrated and largely self-govern- 
ing province of Natal in which 
every resident over the age of 18 
would have the vote and be 
represented in a single parliament. 

If enforced, the bill of rights 
would sweep away the remaining 
structures of apartheid in the 
province, whose 6.620.300 inhab- 
itants make up 22 per cent of 
South Africa's population. Its 15 
detailed clauses guarantee, for 
example, equality before the law 
and the right of everyone to own 
and occupy properly anywhere, 
regard Jess of race. That would 
mean the end of one of the most 
important legal pillars of apart- 
heid. the Group Areas Act. which 
enforces racial separation. 

The bill of rights also guarantees 
that any person arrested or de- 
tained must, within a reasonable 
time, be either released or charged 
and tried in a court of law. That 
provision would run directly 
counter io the Internal Security 
Act and other repressive legisla- 
tion on which Pretoria relies to 
keep black opposition in check. 

This all sounds, to put it mildly, 
somewhat utopian- in the South 
African context. All the more so as 
the indaba has no power to put its 
proposals into effect without 
Pretoria's approval: and key play- 
ers on the black political stage, 
such as the outlawed African 
National Congress (ANC), and its 
still just-lawful shadow, the 
United Democratic Front (UDF). 
have, refused to take part, 
condemning the exercise as divi- 
sive of the black nationalist cause. 

The indaha's main daim to be 
taken seriously is the involvement 
of Inkatha. the well-drilled. Zulu- 
dominated political organization 
with more than a million paid-up 
members led by Chief Gatsha 
Buthelezi. Although anathema to 

the radicals, Buthelezi is the only 
black politician outside the ANC 
and UDF who has a substantial 
following and who has so for 
refused to be drawn into any of the 
negotiating forums devised by tbe 

Pretoria declined an invitation 
to be a full partiripant in the 
indaba. but tbe ruling National 
Party is represented by observers. 
Whites are also represented by the 
anti-apartheid Progressive Federal 
Party and by various business and 
professional organizations, both 
English-speaking and Afrikaner. 

The inaaba deserves attention if 
only because, in the words of Dr 
Oscar Dhlomo. Inkatha's sec- 
retary-general. it is at present “the 
only show in town" — the only 
place where the search for a 
negotiated, non-violent solution 
to South Africa's racial conflict 
appears to be making any head- 
way at all. 

The indaba is being held behind 
closed doors, but interviews The 
Times has conducted «ith partici- 
pants suggest that remarkable 
progress has been made. The aim 
is the setting up of a single 
executive, accountable to a single 
legislature elected on a one-man- 
one-vote, proportional representa- 
tion system. This would email 
scrapping the separate admin- 
istrative and legislative structures 
of the KwaZulu tribal homeland 
areas and the white-occupied parts 
of Natal, and treating the province 
as a single entity. 

As Natal's population is 78 per 
cent black (predominantly Zulu 
but with an important Xhosa 
minority). 1 1 percent Indian, nine 
per cent white (mainly English- 
speaking) and two per cent Col- 

oured (mixed race), such an 
approach can only produce a 
government and parliament in 
which whiles are in a small 

The conundrum that the indaba 
is trying to solve is at the heart of 
any negotiated solution to South 
Africa's ills: how to give blades the 
substance of majority rule and, at 
the same time, devise — if possible 
on a basis that is not overtly radal 
- ways of assuring whites and 
other minorities that their’ views 
will still carry some weight. 

The indaba believes h has found 
a way of squaring this aide so for 
as the single executive is con- 
cerned. Its proposal, broadly 
agreed by the del eg at es , is that the 
province would have a ceremonial 
governor, appointed by President 
Botha on the recommendation of 
the Natal parliament. Under him 
there would be a prime minister— 
chosen by whichever party, or 
coalition of parties, achieved 51 
per cent or more of the votes — 
and cabinet 

The prime minister would be 
entitled to give half of the cabinet 
portfolios to people from his own 
party or coalition. The other half 
would be allocated proportionally 
to all other parties represented in 
parliament The prime minister 
would thus command half the 
votes in cabinet plus his own-The 
provincial government would 
have complete control over such 
things as education, health, hous- 
ing and schools, but foreign 
affairs, defence and international 
trade would remain in the hands 
of the central government Much 
more controversial are the ques- 
tions or tax-raising powers ana the 
administration of justice. 

There is also broad agreement 
on the principle of special, 
weighted representation' for 
minority parties in parliament 
One solution being discussed is 
that any party that could win at 
least one per cent of the vote (the 
threshold might be set higher) 
would be guaranteed a minimum 
number of seats. 

Suppose that Inkatha wins 70 
percent of the vote and gets 70 out 
of 100 seats. Five other parties win 
six per cent of tbe vote each, 
giving them six seats each. These 
smaller parties might then be 
given another two seats each, to 
bring them up to a guaranteed 
minimum of eight. The minority 
parties would then command 40 
seats out of 1 10. up from 30 per 
cent to 36 per cent of the total. 

The indaba participants are 
hopeful that they can reach agree- 
ment on all outstanding matters 
by the end of November. They 
have decided that before they 
submit their proposed constitu- 
tion to the government it should 
be endorsed by a referendum in 
Natal — an all-race referendum, or 
a series of separate plebiscites 
conducted among each race group. 

If it can be shown that tbe 
proposed constitution has 
substantial popular support, 
would the government agree to go 
along with it? Botha might be 
tempted to view a multiracial 
Natal as a way of placating 
international opinion. He might 
also see some advantage in allow- 
ing an experiment in power- 
sharing in a province where the 
government has never had much 
political following and thus has 
little to lose. 

The Liberal Parliamentary Party 
will today discuss a report on 
defence drawn up by David Steel 
and the party's parliamentary 
defence spokesman. Jim Wallace. 
The report reaffims the Liberals’ 
“intention to maintain a mini- 
mum nuclear deterrent", and calls 
for a “freeze”, but only "at the 
current level of capability". 

This means that unless the 
deterrent is negotiated away in 
arms-conirof talks the Liberate 
will be committed to replacing 
Polaris when it becomes obsolete; 
This is the position which Steel 
adopted before he was snubbed in 
the defence debate at Iasi month's 
Liberal Assembly. The uniting of 
virtually all the party's MPs — 
including Simon Hughes, who 
spoke against the platform at the 
time — behind this formula is 
intended to prevent any recur- 
rence of the chaos that the debate 
triggered off in the party and the 

Steel is known to be keeping 
four options open for maintaining 
the nuclear deterrent. (The new 
Trident missile system is not one 
of them because it would increase 
the present megaionnage.) Apart 
from the option of extending the 
life of the Polaris missiles in the 

D-day for Steel’s 
nuclear options 

present submarines, the alter- 
natives involve filling the coming 
Trident submarines with either 
the French M4 missile, or Polaris, 
or the cruise missile. 

Although David Owen would 
have preferred to commit the 
Alliance to one of these choices, he 
can still live with the report. So 
can Simon Hughes. “I believe in 
multilateral negotiations." says 
Hughes, "and you can only do that 
if you have something to negotiate 
away.” .All he was ever against, he 
explained, was European nuclear 
co-operation. He now says he is 
quite happy to back a minimum 

nuclear deterrent as long as it is 
not the “Euro" option. 

This represents a significant 
victory for Steel. Although he will 
want to portray the report as a 
compromise, taking on board the 
differing views in the Alliance, it 
stilt represents his determination 
to overturn the conference de- 

.Although it is important for 

Steel to get his parliamentary 
pany to back the report (which, 
apart from Michael Meadowcroft, 
it is expected to do) it is the policy 
committee that has the constitu- 
tional power to make Liberal 
policy. However. Steel is now 
confident that after today's meet- 
ing of Liberal MPs the new 
defence policy will finally become 
Liberal policy. 

Hughes is quick to point out. 
though, that "it would be folly if 
others in the party were not 
consulted". That is why Steel’s 
aides will be pressing him to ask 
the party’s national executive to 
call a special one-day Libera! 
assembly to back his call for a 
minimum nuclear deterrent. They 
rightly perceive that if he could 
publicly get his party's backing on 
this issue the Alliance could win 
back the support it has lost to tbe 

Bui if he lost again, or if he won 
by only a few votes, the additonal 
damage to the party and to the 
Alliance would be immense. Not 

surprisingly be is unsure whether 
he should risk iL 

The last special Liberal assem- 
bly. in January 1978, was called, 
against Steel's wishes, to end the 
Lib/Lab pact; but it ended up 
approving and even extending the 
pact. According to Steel's shell- 
shocked opponents, who wrote 
down their conclusions in the 
Liberal magazine New Outlook. 
the assembly showed “the power 
of the directly elected leader to 
appeal over the heads of the party 
activists to the electorate". It was a 
huge slap in the feoe for those who 
had tried to tie Steel down to a 
cumbersome assembly decision, 
only to see him given a free hand. 

There are two reasons why Steel 
would be fifcefy to wm again if he 
called a special assembly to ratify 
his defence policy. First, it is held 
on a Saturday, which enables 
many rank-and-file Liberals to 
attend, instead of just tbe most 
ardent activists. Secondly. Lib- 
erals would be faced with one of 
two options: back Steel or sack 
Steel. The horrors of losing their 
most popular leader before an 
impending general election should 
be enough to cool the most 
dedicated opponent.

Time to do more 
for the salmon 

An Atlantic salmon symposium, 
bringing together experts from 
both sides of the Adamic, began 
yesterday in Biarritz. Tomorrow, 
tbe House of Commons takes the 
report and third reading of the 
Salmon BilL 

We are concerned about threat- 
ened species. Atlantic salmon do 
not foil into that category — yeL 
This year and last, surprising 
numbers returned to British riv- 
ers, But what matters is the long- 
term trend. Tbe world catch in 
home waters, excluding the new 
high-seas fisheries, has declined by 
a catastrophic 50 per cent in 17 
years. If we do nothing, Atlantic 
salmon may become as scarce as 
red kites. 

Does this matter? I think it 
does. The salmon is perhaps our 
most inrerestingand splendid fish, 
starting life in fresh water, swim- 
ming thousands of miles to feed- . 
ing grounds off the Faroes, 
Greenland and Grand Banks, 
returning after one sea- winter as 
grilse, or after two. three or four as 
salmon weighing between six and 
40 pounds or more, it would be 
tragic if our grandchildren found 
our rivers empty of salmon be- 
cause of failure to act now. 

Tbe problem is international. 
Atlantic salmon come from north- 
eastern North America and north- 
ern Europe. The North Atlantic 
Salmon Conservation Organiza- 
tion (Nasco) has bees established 
in Edinburgh to co-ordinate ac- 
tion. It includes the United States, 
which is tougher than other West- 
ern governments on whale and, 
salm on problems. Its most urgent 
task is restricting the high-seas 
fisheries off Greenland and the 
Faroes, now taking a quarter of a 
million salmon each year and 
putting an enormous strain on the 

We cannot, sadly, belong to 
Nasco; the EEC Commission is 
responsible for Community fish- 
eries and represents us. But we 
must work through the EEC for 
effective conservation measures. 
So for it has been the Atlantic 
Salmon Trust, a private body, 
which has kept in touch with those 
concerned, overseas. The govern- 
ment should now do more. 

To exert our proper influence 
we must put our own house In’ 
order. The Canadians. Americans 
and Norwegians' have introduced 
stringent conservation measures. 
We nave not. But in June, John 
Sefwyn Glimmer said for the 
Ministry of Agriculture: “1 do not 
see salmon as a food resource in 
the wild. It is only incidentally a 
food resource." 

Salmon .forming, already pro- 
ducing seven times' tbe total 
Scottish catch of wiki salmon, can 
now provide our food needs, while 
rod fishing brings benefits to poor : 
rural areas for exceeding 'returns 
from commercial netting. 

The Salmon Bin began as a 
mainly local Scottish measure. 

But intense discussion in both 
Houses has increased its value and 
demonstrated the depth of con- .1 
cern about threats to the species. It 
now indudes clauses which 
should make tbe sale of illegally 
caught salmon more difficult, and 
a government undertaking to re- 
view, after three years, netting off - 
north-eastern England and in 
south-eastern Scotland. - of 

Some rivers have been cleaned r 
up and a few' salmon are again 
running up the Thames and Tyne; 

The Atlantic Salmon Conserya- “ 
tion Trust is buying up netting ^ 
rights in Scotland. This is aH good 
news, but we cannot afford to 
relax. Salmon are now threatened 
by pollution, water abstraction, i*. 
legal and illegal drift-netting ai sea . 
with monofilament nets.' or- . 
ganized poaching in rivets,, and 
hydro-electric dams.

And we need better inform* 
ation. Only a few rivers, such as 
the Spey and the Wye, are the 
subject of comprehensive annual ' t 
statistics. Some think that only a

We need an authoritative body to * 
collect and publish detailed statis- 
tics and, on the basis of the best ?. 
scientific advice and constant 
monitoring of the runs, work out a

was tbe government's announce* '

(but not Northern Ireland), under

This will initially consider the ■% 
availability of information on the ** 
status of salmon stocks, the effects 
of predators, fishing at low-water -

Adrian Braid has capitalized /ob

want to change publisher, but find 
themselves committed by then-

books for tbe old publisher. 

“Or at least offering two more 
books to the old publisher," says 
Adrian. “If they are terrible books, 
as they often are, the publisher 
rejects them and honour is sat- 
isfied all round. ■ 

“But no author wonts to waste 
time writing books to be rejected.

It is sometimes said that only in

you are besieged by paper-sellers, 
car-wipers, etc. On the other band, 
you don't get traffic jams in the 
Third World like on tbe M25, and 
you don't get service areas on the ’

Dunbar and her two brothers'

The Invisible Dirt Service

BR Mobile Pawnshop 
Malcolm Ridgate noticed that 
many passengers on Inter-Gty 
trains- had to pay extra, either, 
because they were on the wrong 
train with the wrong saver ticket, 
were travelling first class on a 
secondrdass ticket or had other- 
wise fallen foul of regulations. 
Usually they were embarrassed by 
the demand for extra cash; but not 
when Malcolm introduced his 
mobile pawnshop where they can 
instantly pawn -objects of -value 
and raise the money for the ticket. 
Very often he finds that passengers

For a newspaper or broadcast- 
ing organisation to settle alibel 
action out of court is often 
prudent - even though it can 
. leave journalists feeling 
bruised. For such an 
organisation to fight a libd 
action often shows courage 
beyond the bounds of reason — 
.but is no less to be cont- 

- mended for that. To begin to 
fight a libel action., however, 
and to settle so soon after- 
wards is to put a question 
mark, at least, over the com- 

• petence of the management 
involved. When that manage- 

.. ment has the recent record of 
the BBC it is a rather large 

- question mark. 

It is now more than two- 
/ and-a-half years since the BBC 
Panorama programme pro- 
duced a report entitled 
Maggie's Militant Tendency. 

■ The thrust of the programme 
was that the Conservative 
4 Party had been infiltrated by 
' an extreme right-wing 
organisation, called Tory Ac- 
tion, whose members were 
virulently anti-semitic and 
racist. It associated with this 
organisation a number of 
Conservative MPs, including 
Mr Neil Hamilton and Mr 
Gerald Howarth whose sub- 
sequent libel actions were 
settled yesterday. 

The programme was viewed 
at a senior level (though not, it 
seems, by the Director Gen- 
eral) before being broadcast. 
After the broadcast the Direc- 
tor General, Mr Alasdair 
Milne, expressed himself con- 
fident in its findings. 

Since then a number of libel 
actions by other named MPs 
were settled out of court Last 
week the search continued for 
an out-of-court settlement 
with Mr Hamilton, although 
the BBC Board of Manage- 
ment wanted to continue to 
defend the Howarth action. At 
the end of the week the 
Governors derided that there 
was no alternative but to settle 
the action with Mr Howarth 
too. But by the time that this 
had been agreed and the 
wording of the apology found 
that was acceptable to all sides. 

* the case had come to court 

AH in all the case had cost a 
great deal of license payers’ 
money without any gain in the 

protection of journalistic free- 
doms. It has been made pos- 
sible for conspiracy theorists 
to concoct all manner of 
explanations as to why the 
BBC had abandoned its fight— 
from the dissuasion of wit- 
nesses to straightforward Gov- 
ernmental pressure upon the 
BBC Governors. The most 

plausible explanantion — sim- 
ple management uncertainty — 
has to fight for attention in the 
Tush of plot and counterplot. 

For Mr Hamilton and Mr 
Howarth yesterday’s settle- 
ment is some compensation 
for what has clearly been a 
very difficult time. Seriously 
damaging allegations against 
them have not been sustained. 
They have risked their own 
money against a publicly 
funded body and have each 
emerged with .a reported 
£20,000 in damages, their legal 
costs, and an unreserved 

For the journalists at Pan- 
orama it has been a consid- 
erable rebuke. They have 
managed to sustain few of 
their original charges. Long- 
standing techniques of in- 
vestigatory reporting on 
television, in particular the use 
of film to make . unstated 
commentary upon statements 
that the reporter or inter- 
viewee is making, have been- 
called — rightly — into ques- 

Yet. already the focus is 
moving away from the specific 
aspects of the case towards the 
general condition of the BBC 
As The Times has been arguing 
for as long as this case has been 
outstanding, that condition is 
generally unstable and, in 
parts, rotten. 

The Corporation is financed 
by an old and slowly collapsing 
system of universal licence fee: 
As a direct result of that 
system the BBC has been 
forced to come of a size that 
brings it close to collapse itself. 
To defend its rights as a tax 
collector it has expanded like 
some mindless bureaucratic 
empire. Its managers struggle 
to manage. Its Governors have 
long given up the attempt to 
govern. .... 

When peat empires are in 
decay it is no surprise that 
errors occur that once would 

have been kept in cbecfcAJJ 
journalists make mistakes. 
Most journalists dislike criti- 
cism. Many is the journalist 
who could be blown off course 
by the superficial attraction of 
a programme idea that could 
cany a title as catchy as 
Maggie’s Militant Tendency. 
BBC journalists are no dif- 
ferent They simply have too 
long been allowed to think that 
they are. 

The BBC now needs stron- 
ger central control to protect 
its best journalistic practices 
from political interference and 
to make sure that its worst 
practices are stamped out It 
needs stronger control not to 
prevent the BBC’s eventual 
dismemberment (which is in- 
evitable) but to prevent the 
constituent parts (including 
the current affairs department) 
becoming too damaged to play 
any useful part in the future. 

The feet that an empire is 
weak does not mean that it 
should be allowed to fell to the 
first hostile adversary. When 
Mr Tebbit produces bis report 
on anti-Tory bias on the BBC 
he will undoubtedly make 
some telling points. But the 
virulence of some Tory attacks 
on theCorporation should be a 
matter of concern for all those 
who are concerned with 
journalistic freedom. 

Included in the agreed state- 
ments yesterday was one to the 
effect that there had been no 
campaign or vendetta against 
the Conservative Party. The 
BBC will have to work harder 
than it will like over the 
coming months to ensure that 
this statement is seen to be 
true. Such is the price, of a 
public suit for peace. 

The Government, however, 
would be better advised to 
concentrate its pressure on the 
organisation of broadcasting, 
on the privatisation of Radios 
One and Two (as recom- 
mended by the more radical 
members of the Peacock 
Committee) on the end to BBC 
involvement in local radio, on 
the general concentration of 
the Corporation’s scarce 
management skills on areas of 
activity that are genuinely 
manageable in the public in- 

To do badly in one set of local 
polls may be regarded as a 
misfortune. To do so again 
seven days later must count as 
genuine unpopularity. 
Greece’s Socialist prime min- 
ister. the eloquent Mr Andreas 
Papandreou. now has three 
years in which to ensure that 
ibis unpopularity is not trans- 
formed into a national elec- 
toral disaster for his ruling 
party. Pasok. 

A number of causes underlie 
its dismal showing in the last 
ten days, when it lost control 
of the country's three largest 
cities, Athens, Piraeus and 
Salonika - and leaned heavily 
on Communist support to 
stem the erosion elsewhere. 
Local issues undoubtedly 
intervened, as did a number of 
financial scandals relating to 
slate enterprises and distaste 
for the arrogant lifestyle of 
many of those in power. 

But Mr Papandreou has also 
alienated fringe Communists 
by the austerity programme he 
has been obliged to introduce 
to avoid presiding over the 
bankruptcy of the Greek econ- 
omy. At the same time he has 
repelled the centre by the 
expansionist policies which 
helped get the economy into 
such a mess — with a $16 


billion foreign debt and the 
need for further heavy borrow- 
ing to service it 
In electoral terms Mr 
Papandreou's plight is not yet 
desperate. He has a majority in 
parliament . which at least 
spares him for the time being 
from internal political com- 
promise. Bui the state of the 
economy greatly limits his 
room for manoeuvre. 

In public he has filled the 
role of Western Europe’s 
bogeyman with some enthu- 
siasm — unleashing bursts of 
rhetoric against his allies. But 
he has kept his country in Nato 
and the EEC, despite pre- 
election threats to the contrary 
and he has so fer shown 
himself willing to negotiate a 
new bases agreement with the 
United States when the 
present one expires in 1988. 

It is very likely that left-wing 
rhetoric will rise by several 
decibels in the near future: But 
Greece is heavily in debt to 
American banks and, given the 
uneasy relationship with Tur- 
key, needs continuing US sup- 
port for Greek security. So it is 
hard to see how his deeds can 
match his words. As long as 
the economy bumps along, the 
Greek government has to tread 
the straight and narrow — 

whatever radical options it 
may aspire to. 

In the longer term, however, 
there are grounds for concern 
in the West One lesson of the 
local elections must be that Mr 
Papandreou is vulnerable to 
swings both left and right. 
Despite his present clear 
majority, he tempted 
to make concessions to the fer 
left before the next general 
election in 1989, to avoid a 
divided left vote which might 
allow the right to take power. 
That seems to have happened 
this time at local leveL 

If he cannot afford to do so 
economically, he might feel 
compelled to move towards 
changes which the pro-Soviet 
Communists want in the 
country's proportional 
representation system. These 
might ultimately transform 
them into a major political 
influence in Greece. 

The weekend’s results which 
put Athens, Piraeus and Sa- 
lonika under right wing con- 
trol for the first time in more 
than 20 years, 30 years and 60 
years respectively could there- 
fore turn out to be something 
of a mixed blessing for Mr 
Papandreou’s understandably 
nervous allies in NATO. 

Nobody likes to be observed 
visiting the pawnbroker. But 
that is a risk you take. The use 
which Mr Gordon Brown, 
Labour's regional affairs 
spokesman, has made of the 
Government’s application for 
funds to the European Re- 
gional Development Fund 
looks to be just such a case of 
the nosey neighbour. 

The Government's report 
on its regional development 
programme, submitted as part 
of the application for Commu- 
nity funds, makes the most of 
the defects in Britain’s regional 
economies which it is seeking 
funds to rectify*. But then it 
would, wouldn’t it There 
would have been little point in 
going along to the Commis- 
sion in our best suit, delivering 
a panegyric on the prospects 
for regional Britain and then 
holding out a manicured hand 
alongside the suitably homy 
palm from Italy’s Mezzo- 
giomo or Ireland’s fanning 
lobby. The report has to be 
read in the context for which it 
was intended. 


Mr Brown has made much 
of tite unemployment assump- 
tion in tiie document which 
shows the numbers out of 
work staying roughly un- 
changed between now and 
1990. Making an assumption 
of this kind, however, is 
neither unusual nor particu- 
larly revealing. We must bear 
in mind, as before, the context 
of the document. Indeed, judg- 
ing by recent figures and the 
immediate outlook on un- 
employment, the assumption 
looks pessimistic. Mr Brown is 
unlikely to complain about 
that; the Commission might 
That is not to say that there 
are no unmet needs. It is not 
difficult to make a case for 
spending more public money 
on a large number of projects. 
C hanging numbers of pupils 
demand capital spending .to 
adapt existing schools. Rising 
expectations and standards of 
health care create fresh de- 
mands for spending on hos- 
pitals. And in some cities like 
Manchester several of the civic 
ameniti es installed in the 

palmy days of Victorian 
expansion appear to be wear- 
ing out at the same time: 

Nevertheless to suggest that 
the regions are some kind of 
wasteland which will not be 
reclaimed unless massive 
amounts of extra public spend- 
ing are poured in is plainly 
wrong. Spending on roads has 
risen by a quarter in real toms 
in the course of this decade. 
Spending on hospitals is up by 
nearly as much. And many of 
the major capital projects such 
as British Rail's East Coast 
Main Line electrification are 
of special benefit to depressed 
areas tike the North East. Nor 
has this spending been without 
effect Thus, few cities are as 
well-endowed with motorways 
as Glasgow. 

One final reflection: the 
Commission doubtless re- 
peated Caveat emptor to itself 
when reading the 
Government’s submission; the 
public should treat Mr 
Brown’s comments upon it in 
the same sceptical spirit 


Conservative attitude to BBC 

From Mr Rodney Gent 
Sir, Am I the only Conservative 
who is becoming increasingly 
embarrassed by my party’s atti- 
tude towards the BBC? 

I wonder if the view being taken 
is being influenced by the party’s 
mood on internal dissent. At our 
last conference 91 motions were 
put forward on party policy and 
public relations and yet the only 
one that was wholly uncritical of 
the Government, even by implica- 
tion, was the one chosen for 
debate. While the members at the 
conference may have been pre- 
pared to roQ over and play dead at 
such a 1 distortion of their in- 
tentions, the party cannot expect 
the BBC to behave similarly at 
their w£IL 

It is the role of the BBC to act in 
a balanced way and to report 
matters in the round. For instance. 

of sidling off council houses does 
have the disbenefit of reducing the 
quality of the pool of houses left 
for letting. Indeed, to suggest 
otherwise would be a denial of 
market forces. 

It is for the Government to 
emphasise the. greater benefit of 
home ownership, even if there is a 
short-term disbenefit. It is tbe 
BBC’s role to report that policy 
independently and to allow those 
losing out to also have their say. 
They may well say things that the 
Government would prefer to go 
unsai d. 

I watched, with very mixed 
feelings, the events in Libya on 
both tbe BBC and the ITV and was 
not conscious of any noticeable 
bias or any ^strikingly different 
presentation of tbe information 
between tbe two channels. Both 
channels gave very fuH coverage to 
the information and views pro- 

vided by the While House, the 
veracity of which are now the 
subject of some doubt 

As a Conservative, I can only 
hope that the new Chairman of the 
Governors will be very exacting in 
his requirement for evidence from 
any party and that Mr Tebbit will 
publish in fen this dossier. 

Yours faithfully, . 


71 Wickham Way, 

Beckenham, Kent 
October 16. 

From Miss Joanna EMerink 
Sir, Lord Barnett, vice-chairman 
of the BBC has asked those who 
accuse the corporation ofleft-wing 
bias to desist (report, October 16). 
He says that if the criticisms” 
continue the morale of pro- 
gramme makeis will suffer and the 
BBC could eventually be de- 
stroyed. Why should tins be so? 

In assuring us that the BBC is ' 
truly independent, by which he 
intends to imply that it is also free 
from bias. Lord Barnett remimfe 
us that aD governments tend to. 
accuse the corporation of being 
unfair to them, whichever politi- 
cal party happens to be in power. 
Why then should the present 
criticisms be considered uniquely 
dangerous to the morale of the 
BBC and threaten to destroy it? 

If tbe BBC is as even-handed as* 
its vice-chairman suggests, there is 
surely no more to be feared from 
the recent accusations ofleft-wing 
bias than there was from earlier 
and opposite ones. If on the other 
hand, die charges have substance, 
should he not be concerned to 
eradicate their cause? 

Yours faithfully,

Lords in Rogers v Essex County 
Council (Law Report, October 17) 
is disturbing. Reversing the earlier 
decision of the Divisional Court, 
it holds that a route of nearly three 
miles is an ''available route” for a 
12-year-old schoolgirl to walk 
between home and school, not- 
withstanding that part of it is an 
iso lated unlig hted track “of 
considerable danger for a young 
girl” (to use the words of Lord 
Ackner, who, in accordance with 
the questionable new practice, 
delivered tbe only full speech). 

The conclusion is that the girfs 
parents are guilty of the criminal 
offence of not ensuring her atten- 
dance at school unless they allow 
her to incur danger, or one of them 
takes or accompanies her to and 
from school, or they pay hex bus or 
taxi fere. Yet the Act of Partiment 
in question dearly contemplates 
that such a burden should be 
placed on parents only where the 
nearest route is less than three 
miles and is “available” 

Common sense, which has often 
been held applicable to statutory 
interpretation, says that a route 
cannot possibly be “available” to 
a young child if it places her in 

Nor is it right by a side wind to 
impose on parents who do not run 
a car, and cannot afford buses or 
taxis, an imputed statutory duty of 
walking some 1 1 miles a day in 
order to accompany the child to 

and from schooL There are no 
words in the Act to suggest an 
intention by Parliament to create 
such an unreasonable imposition. 

In a comment on the Divisional 
Court decision in The All England 
Law Reports Annual Review for 
1985 1 observed that it was in hne 
with the presumption that Par- 
liament intends to safeguard the 
welfare of minors. It is much to be 
regretted that the House of Lords 
has not seen fit to uphold this 
sensible, and I believe legally 
correct, decision. 

Yours faithfully,

From MrB. L. Thome 
Sir, Is h acceptable that a parent 
should be faced with the choice 
either of walking up to 12 miles a 
day or of putting the child at risk 
when travelling to and from 
school? In tbe light of the Brighton 
murders this proposition has a 
certain primitive cruelty about it. 

I suggest that the Education 
Secretary uses the Bill now before 
Parliament to amend section 39 of 
the Education Act 1944, perhaps 
on the following lines: “ . . mea- 
sured by the nearest available 
route which is reasonably safe for 
an unaccompanied child of the 
relevant age”.

Nuclear safety 

From the Corporate Managing 
Director erf the Central Electricity 
Generating Board 
Sir, Mr Parker asks (October 14) 
whether the accidents at Three 
Mile Island and Chernobyl invali- 
date safety studies which show 
that the risk of a large accident at a 
UK reactor is so small that it can 
be discounted. 

An open city 

From Mr K. P. Brown 
Sr, As a citizen of Birmingham I 
was delighted to read your leader 
■“Two cheers for Birmingham” 
(October 14). However, I think 
you do less than justice to our 
local authority leisure department 
when you say Birmingham is 
“poorly endowed with panes”. 

The dty has a total of 160 public 
parks and recreation grounds, 
occupying an area of 6,78 6 acres. 
Tbe city itself covers 64,822 acres, 
so more than 10 per cent of doe 
dty is occupied by parks and’ 
leisure grounds. 

I have not included in the area 
above publicly owned golf courses 
nor any privately owned sports 
grounds, golf courses or tbe bite

The Chernobyl accident was 
only possible because of fun- 
damental design defects in the 
Russian reactor which are not 
present in reactors operating or 
planned by the GEGB. Deliberate 
violations of safety procedures 
and operator errors were also 

The stringency of our safety 
systems, technical standards, tbe 
responsibilities placed upon the 
utilities and the oversight pro- 
vided by the independent watch- 
dog body ensure that a system 
with the defects of the Russian 
reactor could not be licensed in the 

British reactors have been de- 
signed to be tolerant of human 
mistakes: they take account of the 
likelihood that what can go wrong 
win go wrong. 

Incidentally, Mr Parker is mis- 
taken in believing that the Three 
Mile Island operators were carry- 
ing out unauthorised procedures 
which resulted in a rapid increase' 
in power, as occurred with tite 
Russian reactor.

Unit closure 

From Mr A. D. Heath and others 
Sir, Following implementation of 
the Griffiths report, it was stated 
that “management must have tbe 
confidence and trust of 
clinician*” The North East 
Thames Regional Health 
Authority (Nethra) has dearfy lost 
both as a result of its decision to 
close the radiotherapy unit at 
Southend Hospital and build a 
new unit at Harold Wood. 

We believe that Nethra has 
grossly under-estimated the disas- 
trous effect this decision will have 
on Southend Hospital and the 
500,000 people who live in South- 
east Essex. 

.The Southend unit treats well 
over 1,500 new patients with 
cancer each year, allowing them to 
stay in or near their homes. 
Closure will cause our patients 
needless additional suffering due 
to tong and frequent journeys or 
admission to hospital out of reach 
of regular viators. 

Southend is a health district 
which — by Nethra's own ad- 
mission — is under-fended by 
several millions of pounds per 
annum depending on the formula 
used. Nevertheless. we are— again 
by the region’s own admission — 
the most cost-efficient hospital in 
Essex. It therefore astonishes us 
that nearfy £6 milli on is available 
to build a new unit. 

We have written to the Sec- 
retary of 'State asking him to 
consider this decision most ur- 
gently, to- reverse, it and to 
investijpte tbe manner in which it 
was made. 

Yours faithfully,

Our philosophy now is that the 
only way to develop is with our 
audience, which req uire s that we 
develop smoothly, not in great 
leaps. In the last 18 months, in 
association wife the Barbican 
Centre, we mounted two huge and 
incredibly successful projects — 
tbe Mahler, Vienna and the 20th 
century and the Bernstein festi- 
vals, both of which consisted 
almost entirely of 20th century 
music, much of it by living 
composers. These festivals also 
played to packed houses. The 
point is that ft is possible to 
broaden the horizons, but in our 
experience, only through very 
strong identity, heavily marketed 

Apart from the great contribu- 
tion these projects make to 
London's musical life they are also 
extremely expensive and cannot 
be undertaken on the public 
funding presently available to fee 
London orchestras. Thus, we are 
now working very hard on raising 
the sponsorship to mount them 
more frequently. 

Mr Griffiths will be delighted to 
know that in February next year 
we will be mounting a Stravinsky 
Festival m the Barbican; no piece 
being performed will have been 
written prior to 1910. 

This will be followed by a 
Russian Festival, much of the 
music written this century; then a 
Gershwin Festival, again all 20th 
century music, and in the autumn 
Lutoslawsld and Penderecki will 
conduct their own concertos in the 
Rostropovich 60th birthday 

I hope Mr Griffiths wifi be as 
appreciative of these events as be 
is critical. 

Yours faithfully,

From Mr T. R. Lawrence 
Sir, Sir Thomas Beecham defined 
good music as “that which pene-

quits the memory with difficulty.” 

Until modern composers gram 
this simple fact the situation will 
thankfully remain as described by 
Paul Griffiths in his article en- 
titled “Why do orchestras exclude 
the muse of our age?”

The Dnke In China 

From Mr Christopher White 
Sir, As one of the students 
involved in tbe. now famed meet- 
ing wife the Duke of Edinburgh in 
Xian (report, October 17) I would 
like to put on record my dis- 
appointment, dismay even, at the 
apparent attitude of certain sec- 
tions of the British Press in their 
reporting of the event 

Such remarks as were made, 
construed as being disparaging, 
were made in a purely jocular 
manner and it ill befits a sup- 
posedly responsible national me- 
dia network to concentrate on 
them so doggedly and at such 

There is no doubt that the Duke 
of Edinburgh has caused himself 
some embarrassment, but tbe real 
embanassmeat should lie with the 
British Press and their incessant

since being here 1 have met with 
courtesy, kindness and good win 
from its people.

Degrees of caring 

From Lord Moyne . 

Sir, A circular has come from; 
British Telecom offering priority 
for out-of-order repairs on pay- 
ment of £3.80 p err quarter for 
Prompt Care (£1 5-20 per year) or 
£10.45 for Total Care (£41.80 per 

AO subscribers are said . to 
receive Standard Care at present 
(and 1 must pay tribute to existing 
arran ge m ents) but I do not see 
how more rapid attention for 
some can foil to be at the expense 
of the best possible aB-round 
service: The telephone can be as 
vital to an impoverished widow 
living fer away as to a business 
that can afford these extra charges.' 

The Total Care offered is surely 
tbe right Of every subscriber. The 
present proposal to charge more 
for maximum efficiency sheds 
doubt on tite readiness of pri- 
vatized enterprises to look after 
public responsibilities without 
favouritism such as implied by 
these proposed douceurs. British 
Telecom is sorely not without 
profits out of which Total Case- 
can be universally provided.

“My second aerial journey fay

I bave had occasion to make in the 
course of my forty preceding

the eyes of an aeronaut who 
ascends in favourable weather. I 
can only give a sanative of an 
aerial tempest which was nigh

“The obstacles which the wind 
caused to tbe inflation of the

the approach of the storm; sod to 
the difficulties of the weather was 
added the tnzbtdenoe of a party, by 
which 1 was prevented from plac-

into a directum different from the 
lights which surrounded the bot-

to guess at, that 1 ascended from

raised me above the clouds, and in 
a few minutes carried me to an

embarrassments which suddenly 
affected my imaginatinn, and pre- 
vented me from observing the 
declension of the mercury in the 
barometer .Elevated in an instant 
to the frozen r egions, hallnm 
became subject to a degree of 
expansion which inspired us with 

the greatest apprehension- There 
was no alternative between certain 
death and giving an instant vent to 
the gas; and this at the risk of 
seeing the hallnn fire. I 

gradually opened with one hand an 
orifice of about two feet diameter, 
by which the gas escaped in large 
volumes, while, with the other, I

My boat several times struck

All the extras in the air 
for the executive guests 

B ritish businessmen 
made 4.5 million 
business trips by air 
last year. They spent 
a total of £17.4 bil- 
lion on their travel and 
entertainment, almost as 
much as the total annual 
combined bill to UK residents 
for rates, advertising and 
corporation tax. 

This is seen by the airlines 
as their bread and butter. To 
make profits they must not 
only attract the businessmen 
— they must keep him, getting 
him to ask for their airline 
every time. More than 60 per 
cent of most airlines’ revenues 
comes from this sector, 
though the number of pas- 
sengers is no more than 10 per 
cent of the total. 

More and more airlines are 
trying to identify their regular 
business passengers, offering 
them membership of exec- 
utive “clubs”, cosseting them 
and making them feel that 

they belong. 

One thing they rarely do is 
cut the cost of a business 
ticket. If any marketing man- 
ager suggested such a thing he 
would be drummed out for 
heresy. To reduce the price of

But they cannot be given 
too much. If the standards in 
-the business cabin were al- 
lowed to rise, they might 
match those of the really high- 
yield feres — F or Fust Class, 
encouraging the handful of 
wealthy passengers to “trade 

It could be argued, there- 
fore. that the airlines are 
exploiting the business trav- 
eller. giving him inferior ser- 
vice and yet charging him the 
most they can get away with. 
There is a lair degree of truth 
in this, especially with Europe. 

But it would not succeed if 
the demand were not there. 
No businessman likes to be- 
lieve he is being treated in the 
same way as a “back-packing” 

- He is the international trav- 
eller, experienced in die ways 
of the world, needing to work 
at the other end. employed by 
a big company which will pay 
his bills provided he arrives 
fresh and ready to begin work. 

Even in allegedly classless 

the passenger travelling on 
business must be able to keep 
constantly in touch with his 
office. But a more detailed 
survey has shown this to be 
untrue. When questioned 
more closely, the typical 
businessman wants to be pam- 
pered but not pestered. 

He does not want to have a 
secretary provided by the 
airline to answer his every 
business need. His company 
may like it, but he doesn't. 

It is an indication of bow 
seriously the airlines are tak- 
ing the business traveller that 
they are conducting such re- 
search. They have also 
commissioned surveys into 
food — does he really want 
low-calorie, simple food as 
most claim they would prefer? 
One airline which tried to 
introduce such fere sold none 


to Amsterdam, but it has also 
lowered feres. 

Michael Bishop, BMA's 
chairman, said: “The business 
or regular traveller has been 
cross-subsidizing the tourist 
for too long. Those people 
who must Qy or must go at a 
particular time can rarely get 
any kind of discount. 

“Yet those who can arrange 
their travel to include a Sat- 
urday night or can book well 
in advance can often save 
huge amounts. It doesn't seem 
right to us and we are trying to 
break through the barriers that 
have been put in the way of 
the business traveller.” 

The airline is, therefore, 
offering a £69 round trip fere 
to Amsterdam, regardless of 
how long the passenger stays 
there or how early be books 
his ticket. This compares with 
the normal economy fere of

So. apart from a few notable 
exceptions, businessmen are 
cajoled into paying more for 
their flights than an 
“ordinary” passenger who 

as the heads of a successful 
works co-operatives. 

This preoccupation with 
status led some airlines to 
experiment with in-flight tele- 
phones, convinced that to be 
made to feel really important 

In Britain and Europe, Brit- 
ish Midland has probably 
done most to confront the 
price problem head on. Not 
only has it introduced a new 
high quality Diamond Service

There are even cheaper

ing early or staying over a 
weekend, just as there are on 
the rival airlines. But accord- 
ing to Mr Bishop this is the 
first example of a really cheap

within Britain, drastically

Strictly speaking, this is 
illegal- Now the CAA wants 
anyone who spends more than 
£100,000 a year on travel to be 
able legally and formally to 
ask for a balk discount rate. 

Unfortunately, a cloud 
hangs over the other method 
of getting cheaper business 
travel — this is the American 
method of offering special 
discounts to frequent flyers, 
under which regular travellers 
with a US airline are given a 
“bonus” for every journey 
they make. 

This is then accumulated 
until it qualifies them for free 
or cut-price flights

Why workaholics seldom get to the top. 

Is he working his way to the top? 
Or not on top of his work? 

This is a true story. 

One company we know employed a man who worked very hard every 
day long after everybody else had gone home and often at weekends as well. 

His job wasn't particularly important or wefl paid. But everybody marvelled 
at how long and painstakingly he laboured. 

At 9 o'clock one night, a few years before he was due to retire, he went to 
collect some more paper from the stationery store. On the way he had a heart- 
attack in the lift. 

Nobody was there to tend him. They'd all gone home. So he died. 

His bosses felt guilty Had they been overworking him, they wondered. 

So they gave someone else the job to do and watched carefully to see 
how he fared. 

The new man found he could do the entire job in two days a week. 

Workaholics, it seems, do not work for success or riches. 

They don't work to achieve anything. 

For them, work is an end in itself. If anything, they work to create more work. 

True, you may say, but what has this to do with InterCrty. (We assume youVe 
spotted the logo at the bottom of this page.) 

Next time you're on the motorway look at the business folk in their cars. 

What are they accomplishing? 

Nat a lot. 

They are achieving nothing more than covering the miles to Liverpool, 
London, Birmingham or wherever And they are turning it into hard work. 

Look at their faces. Do they look as though they're enjoying it? 

When they get to the other end, they will be tired. So they will have the 
comforting feeling that they have done a day's work and earned their money 
before they even reach their meetings. 

Now look at the people covering the same journey on InterGty. 

These people are shirking. 

They are reading magazines, doing crosswords, playing chess, thinking, 
eating meals, studying reports, formulating their strategy snoozing, daydreaming. 
Heaven help us, some of them are drinking alcohol. 

Most of all, they are having a nice time. 

Is this any way for go-ahead executives to conduct themselves? 

It certainly is. 

They arrive at their meetings with fresher, clearer minds. They are probably 
more alert and certainly less tired. Quite simply they're in a fitter state to do business. 

What's more, they get to their meetings at up to 125 miles an hour 
instead of 70. 

Sometimes the way to the top is to do less work. Intercity 

-British Caledonian,’ for 
example, has concentrated on 
the ground travel as well as the 
air, offering free door-to-door 
limousine transfers from 
home to the airport and from

Catering for the inner 
man on the move 

iMWj* «* 



F •->■ • 

Clive James said recently: “1 
love flying. You gei so man* 
meals." As one who once 
asked for, and got, two 
servings of a three-course 
British Caledonian lunch, j 
couldn't agree more. 

Not that in-flight food is 
always a pleasurable experi- 
ence. Electrocuted steak, over- 
cooked vegetables and a sickly 
pudding straight out of the 
nursery have always featured 
prominently on airline menus. 

The airlines are not alone in 
this disgrace of course. We 
have all heard the one about 
the British Rail pork pie. But 
the good news for the business 
traveller is that things are 
finally beginning to improve, 
both in the air and on the 

The bead of the British 
Airways catering operations, 
John Taylorson, admits that 
he does still get the odd 
comptarat- Sportingly, per- 
haps, he does not dte space 
restrictions, stringent tem- 
perature controls — dishes 
have to be stored above 60 
degrees or below 10 degress to 
avoid contamination — or the 
fact that food has to be 
prepared at least four hours in 
advance, as an excuse. 

He points instead to a 
growing pile of letters actually 
praising BA's attempts to 
please the more discerning 

BA has brought in outside 
help. The Roux brothers, of Le 
Gavroche and Waterside Inn 
fame, have had an expert hand 
in the Concorde menus, 
teaming up such mouth- 
watering delicacies as Beluga 
caviar and smoked salmon, 
mcdaillons of veal and 
sweetcom cakes, making what 
is basically a fairly uncomfort- 
able way to travel a lot more 

The culinary twosome have 
had some influence on BA's 

other menus too, sharing cre- 
ative ideas with those ul- 
timately responsible for what 
you find in your BA food tray, 
the BA chefs. 

Airline meals are also get- 
ting more in tune with today's 
obsession with healthier eat- 
ing. British Caledonian offers 
first class and business class 
passengers something called 
La Cuisine du Get, which 
concentrates on lighter and 
innovative continental dishes 
and includes some imagi- 
native salads and fresh fruit 
baskets. BA's new stodge-free 
meals promise to “please the 
eye, delight the palate and 
make your journey a truly 
pleasurable one". 

‘Pleasing the eye 
and the palate’ 

The greatest improvement, 
though, is breakfast Fierce 
competition on the shuttle 
routes has ensured that where 
once all you got was a crois- 
sant-shaped roll, you can now 
tuck into a cholesterol-soaked 
Great British Breakfast Brit- 
ish Midland does a particu- 
larly wonderful early-morning 

Unchanged, unfortunately, 
are the breakfasts served on 
cross-Channel flights because 
there simply is not time to 
prepare and serve (and eat) 
anything more elaborate than 
a basic cold collation. And, be 
assured, those served on trans- 
atlantic routes still appear 
when you least want them — 
two hours after you last ate 
and 530 am local time. 

What shows little sign of 
improvement, however, is in- 
flight wine. When the maga- 
zine Business Traveller made 
its annual airline wine survey 
earlier this year, the World's 
Favourite Airline sank to the 
bottom of the poll and British 

Businesslike ways 
to treat a woman 

Any woman travelling the 
world oh her company's be- 
half is probably intelligent, 
competent and sophisticated. 

Therefore, when a high- 
powered woman executive is 
reduced to putting a pair of 
. paper knickers on her head in 
| an attempt to attract the . 
attention of the waiter in a 
famous Paris hotel restaurant, 
one begins to realize that 
perhaps some hotels could be 
trying just a little harder to 
woo this lucrative and grow- 
ing sector of the business 
travel market. 

France is generally regarded 
as the last European bastion of 
rudeness and discrimination, 
but there have been incidents 
just as inexcusable in first- 
class London hotels. It is bad 
enough fora woman dining, on 
her own to be hidden behind 
the pillars of the restaurant It 
is arguably worse if the deli- 
cate power play of her busi- 
ness dinner is shattered by the 
bill being presented to her 
male guest. 

But it is unforgivable when 
a businesswoman, in a breath- 

taking women seriously is 
Crest It too has retrained staff 
to be aware of the woman on 
her own, to be discreet about 
her room number when check- 
ing in, to recognize who is the 
host at meals and to ensure 
that no woman is ever ha- 
rassed in the hotel bar. Both 
hotels also provide decent 
hangers for women's Clothes, 
full-length mirrors, luxury 
toiletries and hairdriers. After 
all, if shaving points come as 
standard fittings, why cannot 
make-up mirrors? 

Crest take women business 
travellers seriously, distribut- 
ing questionnaires to guests 
and acting on the find in gs. 

Consequently, they are soon 
to introduce an iron and a 
trouser press that converts 
easily into an ironing board in 
all rooms — the most re- 
quested item. 

Annita Roddick, founder of 
The Body Shop, travels twice 
round the world every year, so 
she has built a repertoire of 
hotels where she knows she 
well. Her

and again is much more a 
question of attitude than of 

"Businesswomen don’t 
want single-sex floors, spe- 
cially decorated rooms or to 
be put on communal tables at 
dinner." says Pennv Simpson. 
British representative of the 
Ramada chain of hotels. 
“They merely want the same 
courtesy and service a man 
would expect.'* 

A report in the 1985 .-W 
Hotel & Restaurant Guide. 
claiming that the welcome 
mat was whipped out from 
under women's feet as soon as 
they were seen to be travelling 
alone, amt a wind of change 
fairiv whistling down hotel 
corridors. Hotel groups soon 
realized that businesswomen 
are fiercely loyal and it was 
onjv financial sense to mclde 
the’diflicultics they faced. 

When Ramada launched its 
.employee-awareness pro- 
gramme in 1983 Only 4 per 
cent of guests were business- 
women. This figure has risen 
to 30 per cent and now, in 
1986. women represent the 
fastest growing sector . of 
Ramada’s business market. _ 

Another international chain 

to none. 

However, the one area she 
would like to see improved in 
all hotels is the laundry ser- 
vice, a common gripe. She 
would also like to see a small 
library of books in hotel 
bedrooms and a massage ser- 
vice to unwind her after a 
stressful day. Her biggest com- 
plaints about travelling on 
business were reserved for 
airlines - white she may fly 
first-class her luggage rarely 
does, often getting lost or 
turning up late! 

Another well travelled exec- 
utive is Jean Denton, external, 
affairs director of Austin' 
Rover. Twenty years of 
experience have taught her to 
look for the smaller hotel 
where she will receive much 
more personal service. Her 
priorities: a decent light in the 
bedroom to work by and some 
visible means of securing the 
door at night. Her car tele- 
phone has made an enormous 
difference to her working life 
as she now feels completely 
confident driving late at night 

perhaps the real break- 
through for businesswomen 
will happen when more of 
them are appointed to senior 
hotel management positions. 
Doreen Boulding has been 
general manager of the Belgra- 
via Sheraton for a year and 
admits she is rather a rarity. 
She comes from a sales and 
marketing background and 
has travelled extensively, so 
she knows exactly what 
women want. “I just want 
things to work, to feel 
comfortable, and not to feel 
like I'm going to be picked up 
in the bar. I train my staff 

White howl staff attitudes 
are important, women busi- 
ness travellers too must be 
perceptive. After all. if you 
receive poor service in a hotel, 
it may not be because you are 
a woman on her own. It could 
just be that you picked a bad

comments: “Wine is an im- 
portant part of travel BA just 
can't be bothered I flew the 
Bordeaux ron last week and 
the wine wasn't even remotely 
pleasant I drank orange juice 

A rule of thumb where 
airline wine is concerned is to 
choose the airlines of younger 
countries such as Air New 
Zealand or Qantas, which 
both serve excellent reds and 
whites, and to drink nothing 
served from a, quarter bottle. 
Good wine never comes out of 
a small bottle. 

It does not come out of a 
British Rail buffet car, either. 
Or at least that used to be the 
case. These days a glance at 
the first-class wine list reveals 
several respectable wines. 
What is more, the waiters 
have all attended a wine 
appreciation class, so they 
know the difference between a 
Bordeaux and a Cotes du

Good news at the table: the world’s airlines are now improving their Cure and at home British Bail is shedding its traditional foul food image 

“Cuisine 2000,” explains never cook. on a train.” 

Mr Sumner, “is what we are Unlike the airlines, BR does

controlled flavour” tea (tea 
bags to the rest of us). Thirdly, 
it really is beginning to serve 
some fine meals.

retail and catering manager 
David Sutnoer to put wbat be 
calls the romance back into 
travel and that means good 
food and, just as important, 
staff who make the passenger 
feel cosseted. 

BR's catering flagship is its 
Pullman service which op- 
erates between London and 
principal stations to Blackpool 
and Newcastle upon Tyne. 

First-class ticket-holders using 
Pullman trains are whisked to 
their seats by a BR steward 
and provided with a cup of 
coffee and a hot towel (in the 
best airline style). Passengers 
are then served at their seats 
with either a sumptuous 
breakfast (£7.70 or £4.80) or 
an & la cane meal And the tea 
and coffee keep on coming for 
as long as you want. 

First-class passengers on or- 
dinary services have it pretty 
good these days too. When BR 
introduces its Cuisine 2000 
concept, things will be better 

calling our new cook-chill 
system. At the moment every- 
thing is cooked on board, so 
there is a limit to what we can 
actually do. With cook-chill 
we buy in semi-cooked chin ed 
foods, as the airlines do, and 
just finish thing s off

“It means that we will be 
able to offer dishes like Beef 
Wellington, which we could 

not intend to lei you eat your 
Beef Wellington from a plastic

a silver salver on to a new 
range of octagonal china. And 
you will not have to lurch 
along to the buffet car to eat it 
either — waiters will bring it to 
your seat The system is 
already in operation on two 
London- Man Chester trains 
and will be brought into 
gradual service from the end 
of April 1987. 

Like the airlines, BR has 
made several concessions to 

healthier eating. White bread 
has been banished — brown 
bread Marks & Spencer-style 
sandwiches now come in eight 
different fillings and cost from 
69p — and the bistro service, 
available only on the London- 
Birmingham line, offers a ham 
salad for £5.25. The Choice 
Express menu, available 
mainly on the througb- 
London services, provides a 
vegetable lasagne for £1.95.

Precautions to keep 
you off the sick list 

For at least 2.212 British 
overseas travellers. 1985 will 
be memorable as the year they 
disregarded medical advice, 
foiled to take their anti-malar- 
ial pills and developed malaria 
after their return to Britain. 
Five died. 

These figures do not include 
pjnany more who developed 
malaria while still abroad. 
Nobody is immune - research 
shows that the victims are just 
as likely to have spent a 
lifetime in Africa or India as to 
be first-ume visitors. A former 
senior steward of the Kenya 
Jockey Gub is among those 
who have died recently. 

Some protection can be 
afforded if patients' resistance 
is improved by planning a 
schedule which does not leave 
the travelling executive tired, 
jetlagged and hung over. 
Sleeping pills may be nec- 

essary to counteract tune

n taken in very modest doses,

admiring the household and 
playing with the children. 

TTw most common group of 
diseases caught abroad are the 
gastrointestinal infections. 
Some are due to differing 
standards of hygiene, others to 
the presence of different 
strains of gut organisms from 
‘ those found in Britain.

The rules are straight- 
forward. Avoid the local water 
supply, even when iced for gin 
and tonic or whisky. Choose 
cooked foods. Refuse all sal- 
ads, cold meats and, above all, 
shellfish. If travellers' di- 
arrhoea does strike, take 
Imodium or Lomotil straight 
away. Modern research shows 
that these drags both clear the 
symptoms and shorten the 
attack. ■ 

Anti-typhoid injections are 
needed by visitors to nearly all 
destinations, including the 
Mediterranean coast, other 
than northern Europe and 
North America. To achieve a 
three-year protection two 
injections are needed a month 
apart. Injections separated by 
a shorter time are not as

injections are unnecessary. 
Hygiene is more important 
than inoculation in cholera 
control, but some countries 
still de man d it and it is 
recommended for the Indian 

Polio drops are essential 
Instances of polio caught 
abroad are still comparatively 
common and travellers should 
make certain that their protec- 
tion is up to date. Many 
African and some of the 
northern South American 
countries require a certificate 
of vaccination against yellow 
fever. The injection lasts for 
10 years. 

Prophylaxis against malaria 
varies from one pan of the 
world to another, so travellers 
should check the drugs needed 
by telephoning the London 
School of Hygiene and Tropi- 
cal Medicine, which has a 
taped message detailing the 
required doses. The drugs, 
Maloprim, Chloroquine and 
Paludrine can be bought with- 
out prescription. 

While in a malarial zone 
patients should use insect 
repellents, if possible sleep 
under a mosquito net, and 
keep their arms and legs 
covered between dusk and 

A crucial point to realize is 
that the drugs must be taken 
three to four days before 
leaving and six. weeks after 
return. The malaria parasite in 
the bloodstream is just as 
vigorous when the patient is 
mac home in Norfolk or 

Bedfordshire as it was when he 
was in a steamy jungle. 1 

Protection from hepatitis A, ■ 
the mildest form of hepatitis, 
is achieved by using g amma 
globulin. If given in Britain it 
is prepared by ethanol frac- 
tionation. the Cohn method, 
and there is absolutely no 
chance of catching Aids. 

In some of the under- 
developed countries it is pre- 
pared in different, less reliable 
ways, and the injection should 
be avoided, as should any 
other injection if there is 
doubt as to the sterility of the 

Hepatitis B, and, associated 
with it, the delta virus, is one 
of the world's big killers.

who live in dose proximity to 
the residents of countries , 

Who can advise and who can help 

The London School of Hygiene and Tropical 
Medicine, Keppel Street, WOE 7HT, runs 
two invaluable services for the public. By 
telephoning 01-6367921 it is possible to hear a 
resume of current anti-malarial precautions. A 
doctor is available to answer questions between 
12 noon and 1pm. 

The school has recently set np MASTA 
(The Medical Advisory Service for Travellers 
Abroad), which provides data for visitors to 
230 different countries and summarizes the 
problems caused by 84 conditions and diseases 
which affect travelling. The risk involved in 
visiting any particular country is estimated 
differently, depending whether die tr avelle r is 
going to go to a rural area, towns or tonraf and 
capital dty accommodation. It also makes 
allowance for his activities white there. 

The health briefs are posted within 12 horns 

of the bureau receiving an application form, 
obtainable from Boots or by telephoning 01- 
631 4408. Advice comes at three levels. The 
shortest, covering immunization and malaria, 
costs £4.75. The concise, which also includes 
advice on lifestyle while in the country and 
suggests drugs and appliances which the 
traveller may need, costs £9 JO. A comprehen- 
sive service for £25 virtually provides an up-to- 
the-minute book which is ideal for those who 
are going to live abroad. 

Immunization can be carried out by the 
Thomas Cook Centre, 45 Berkeley Street, ,

Our Business Travel Policy 
is designed to get rid of your bags. 

The rigours of arranging company travel insurance are 
enough to induce jet lag in anyone. 

So Commercial Union have produced a flexible, money- 
saving package that can cover every employee in one policy. 

It could even save money for companies making only 
3 or 4 business trips a year. 

The policy works 24 hours a day, whenever and 
wherever your employees go. 

An d because you needn't tell us when they travel, it cuts 
out paperwork. 

There's even free inclusion in the emergency 
medical services of Europ Assistance. 

To find out more contact your insurance broker ^ 
or local CU branch.

mended to consider it 

Casual sexual intercourse 
has always been risky in 
under-developed countries be- 
cause of hepatitis and other, 
often drug-resistant, forms of 
sexually transmitted diseases. 
It is now lunacy in those parts 
of the world where Aids is rife: 

Recent figures, for instance, 
suggest that 70 per cent of the 
prostitutes in Mombasa are 
infectious, and similar figures, 
if available; would apply to 
other chies in central Africa. It 
is only a matter of time before 
the disease is rampant among 
prostitutes all over the world. 

It is also possible to have 
prophylactic injections against 
a few rarer conditions, includ- 
ing meningoccocal meningitis, 
which is spread by the mos- 
quito in certain parts of Japan 
and China, and tick-borne 
encephalitis in the Balkans 
and South Eastern Europe. 

Last year, a businesswoman 
went to Spain, having taken 
out what she considered a 
comprehensive personal 
travel-insurance policy under- 
written by Lloyd's. After 
completing her business, she 
spent a few days in a friend's 
villa near the coast 

While she was swimming in 
a nearby pool, the house, 
though securely locked, was 
broken into and her money 
and other valuables were 

Further problems arose 
when she tried to claim her 
money back under the insur- 
ance. Despite a claim in large 
letters on the front of the 
policy that cash was covered 
up to £200, the small print on 
the reverse side stated that 
money was covered only if it 
was in a hotel safe or carried 
on one's person. The insur- 
ance company refused to pay. 

A salutary tale, but one that 
illustrates the- belief of the 
Association of British Insurers 
that, although few travellers 
these days depart without any 
insurance, many are either 
under-insured or have not 
taken out the right policy for 
their needs. 

Finding , the right level' of 
insurance can be a problem for 
the independent business 
traveller. People travelling on 
behalf of large companies can 
expea to be sufficiently 
covered by their employers' 
corporate travel policy, but 
small business people and less 
frequent travellers will need to 
work out their own 

Sadly, there is little advice 
on offer. Most travel agents 
display an ignorance of the 

Take the case of a man 
buying policy for travel to the 
United States. He decided to 
raise the medical cover from 
£100.000 to £250,000, an op- 
tion with some policies, much 
against the advice of the travel 
agent, who could not believe 
anyone getting ill “as expen- 
sively as that". 

Banks and insurance bro- 
kers are a better bet, because at

least, if pressed, they will 
come up with good advice. 
You do have to blow what to 
ask for, though, and even so, 
most brokers will have only 
two or three stock policies, 
which are not always flexible. 

The sensible traveller will 
cover himself for medical 
emergencies, for loss of per- 
sonal possessions and per- 
sonal liability, and also for 
cancellation and curtailment 

These days, according to the 
ABl, insufficient medical 
cover is rarely a problem. The 
lowest provision you will find 
is £100,000, and many policies 
offer as much as £1 million in 
cover. Although £100,000 
sounds a lot a spell in an 
American hospital would 
make shore shrift of it If you 
are unveiling to the United 
States, ft makes sense to take 
at least £250,000 worth of 

An increasingly common 
feature of travel-insurance 
policies is the access to emer- 
gency worldwide repatriation 
services, provided by com- 
panies such as Europ Assis- 

tance, TransGare or Mondial 

About 7 per cent of all 
policies issued result in a 
claim, and of those, around 
half are for lost deposits. This 
applies more to holiday- 
makers than to business trav- 
ellers, but it is important to 
make sure there is enough 
cover in your policy to pay for 
losses because of the cancella- 
tion or delay of a planned trip. 

This is particularly im- 
portant if you tend to travel on 
Apex or cut-price tickets, 
which require booking some 
time in advance and cannot be 
changed. The advice here is to 
make sure you take out your 
insurance early enough. 

The other area in which 
business travellers can be 
caught out is for the loss or 
thereof money and baggage. It 
is worth bearing in mind that 
many packaged travel policies 
are designed mainly for 
holidaymakers, whose needs 
are different from those of the 
business traveller. 

So the cover for loss of 
baggage is generally low — 
£1,000 is average but it can be 

as little as £500 - and for cash 
it is around £100. A traveller 
on business is likely to be 
taking either samples or 
expensive equipment — cam- 
eras or computers, for in- 
stance - and may well find 
£1,000 insufficient. The sen- 
sible thing to do is to extend 
cover on valuable items on a 
temporary basis with the com- 
pany that usually insures 

Consider too the sum pay- 
able for persona] accident or 
death, which usually amounts 
to no more than £15.000 on 
most policies. If you wish to 
insure for more than that, 
most companies will raise the 
sum for a small fee. The AA 
scheme allows an extension of 
the personal accident cover up 
to £75.000 for an extra £9. 10. 

Obvious though it may be, 
it is imperative to read the 
small print carefully. You may 
find yourself excluded because 
you are over 65, have a 
medical condition, are seven 
months pregnant, or have 
indulged in winter sports. One 
particular warning concerns 

travellers who intend lo drive 
or hire a car abroad. 

The personal-liability sec- 
tion of most policies excludes 
any claims arising from driv- 
ing a vehicle. And since the 
insurance supplied by most 
car-cental firms is often inad- 
equate. care should he taken. 

When it comes to choosing 
a policy to take with you, it 
comes down to a comparison 
between price and cover. Be 
suspicious of the cover offered 
by credit and charge card 
companies for holidays or 
travel paid for on the card. 
The sums are rarely sufficient, 
and if a claim is made, would 
be deducted from sums pay- 
able on any other policy, 
which the cards advise you 
take out anyway. 

If you normally take a 
number of trips during a year, 
it is worth looking at the new 
breed of annual policies devel- 
oped specifically for business 
travellers, such as Bishopsgate 
“Business Care”, Extrasure 
Worldwide and Supersure 
Worldwide. Some or them 
even indude £1,000 hijack 

Probably the best value is 
the annual policy offered by 
the American Express Cen- 
turion scheme. For £85, Cen- 
turion provides 12 months' 
medical insurance and Europ 
Assistance for the cardholder 
and any accompanying family 
up to £1 million, plus ihe 
usual benefit for delay, theft 
and personal liability. 

If, on the other hand, you 
are looking for a one-off 
policy, it is advisable to 
compare the “time frames” on 
which the premiums are cal- 
culated. For a short trip, you 
will get better value from a 
policy where rates change 
every five days. 

If you are going away lor a 
week, choose a policy where 
the rate goes up after eight 
days, rather than on the 
seventh. Otherwise, just com- 
pare the extent of the cover 
with the cost of policy.

Get a jump 
on jet lag 

Senior executives are walking 
off planes straight into board- 
rooms and making absurd 
decisions. Studies have now 
shown that apart from the 
debilitating effects of tired- 
ness, jet lag is associated with 
lowered performance skills^ 

The business executive could 
cost his or her company a 
fortune; the politician could 
cost his country a lot more. 

Flying back and forth from 
east to west can aggravate the 
problem as changes in blood . 
temperature, blood sugar and 
hormone levels, happening at 
different times, get mixed up 

The RAF Institute of Avi- 
ation Medicine is one of- 
several organizations looking 
at jet lag, concentrating on the 
difficulties air crews experi- 
ence in sleeping properly be- 
tween flights. Though jet lag is 
caused by several factors, a 
lack of deep is the main 

Passengers can. help ward 
off the worst effects of jet lag 
by responding to their inner 
dock. Whatever time they gum 
arrive, they should try' to get 
some sleep immediately. 

Travdtes staying for sev- 
eral days should gradually 
adjust to local eating and 
sleeping times. Each 1-hour 
time zone throws the body's 
own dock out by a day. The 
solution becomes more com- 
plicated for those on short 

Soviet air crews flying to the Moi 

US stick to Moscow time 
throughout. Even the docks at 
the Aeroflot hotel in New 
York are on Moscow time. 

A study now being carried 
out at the Harvard Medical 
School in Boston shows that 
the body's pacemaker is reset 
daily by light conditions: the 
sun in the morning and dark- 
ness at night. Bright light in 
measured doses can reset the Tuei 
body's internal dock. 

The scientists believe that 
the use of light therapy can har 
help jet-lagged travellers ad- 
just to new time zones. Expo-

Mr Justice Lionel Murphy, 
who died in Canberra yester- 
day at the age of 64, was a 
distinguished Australian jurist 
and politician whose career 
was controversial but also full 
of achievement for his coun- 
try. Murphy was Attomey- 
General in fee 1972-75 
Whitfam Labour government 
and then a Judge of the High 

In both roles he strove to 
make the law more compre- 
hensible to fee layman. He 
also made major contribu- 
tions to l«pl reform and the 
advance of civil liberties. 

The last three years of his 
iife, which was cut short by 
cancer, were tumultuous, pre- 
cipitating a crisis for the High 
Court, the Parliament and fee 
Hawke Labour government 
over allegations that he had 
attempted to influence the 
course of justice. 

Lionel Keith Murphy was 
bom on August 30, 1922, the 
son of an Irish immigrant 
form Tipperary- He graduated 
twice from Sydney University, 
first in science and then in law. 

He was admitted to fee New 
South Wales Bar in 1947. His 
practice, largely wife left-wing 
trade unions, helped him to 
win a Senate seat in 1962. 

Ten years later, in fee new 
Labour government, he be- 
came leader in the Senate, 
Attorney-General and Minis- 
ter for Customs and Excise. 
His reforms were swift and 
numerous, almost the first 
being a Family Law Act which 
made irretrievable breakdown 
the sole ground for dissolving 
a marriage, so that divorce 
became simpler and cheaper. 

Then came a new Legal Aid 
Office; tolerant laws on homo- 
sexuality; laws against racial 
discrimination; votes for 18- 
year-olds; and laws to control 
big business and to fight 
monopolies. He was also 
strong on the protection of 
Australia's fauna, and laws 
preventing trade in a host of 
species, ranging from croco- 
diles to bandicoots, wombats 
and wallabies were enacted. 

He removed many of fee 
residual constitutional powers 
of fee United Kingdom, and 
be took the issue of French 
nuclear testingin the Pacific to 
fee International Court of 
Justice. He also led a police 
raid against fee headquarters 
of the Australian Security 
Intelligence organization be- 
cause he felt it was keeping 
files from him. 

The tribulations which 
clouded his last years began in 
March 1984, when he was 
named in illegal police tele- 
phone tapes which had been 
reported in fee press. The 
tapes were interpreted by 
some as indicating that he bad 
tried to influence the New 
South Wales chief magistrate' 
in committal proceedings in- 
volving a Sydney solicitor, 
Morgan Ryan, wife whom he 
had long been acquainted. 

During 1984, Senate com- 

mittees investigated fee aUe- 

f ations against him, and in ~ 
uly 1985, at Sydney Criminal" 
Court, he was found guilty of 
attempting to influence the 
chief magistrate. 

He was sentenced to 18 
months in prison and allowed 
tail pending appeal The ap- 
peal court quashed the sen- 
tence. and a re-trial was 
ordered. In April 1986 he was 
found not guilty of attempting 
to pervert the course of justice. 

His view of fee issue was - 
that, as a reforming High 
Court Judge, he had a coasti- 
tutional duty not to be driven, 
off fee bench by allegations, 
which he (and other influen- 
tial supporters) believed to be 
inspired by conservative 
forces in Australian society. 
*This has been a political 
trial", he said afterwards. 

Bui allegations continued, 
and in the same year the 
Hawke government felt 
obliged to set up a commis- 
sion of inquiry of three retired 
judges to advise as to whether 
Murphy had been guilty of 
“proved misbehaviour”, as 
understood by Section 72 of 
the Constitution. Had the 
commission decided against 
him it would have been 
Parliament's duty to remove 
him from fee bench. 

But his terminal illness, 
announced in July of this year, 
caused the government to end 
the commission of inquiry the 
following month, before it 
could report Early that 
month, against the publicly 
declared wife of. the Chief 
Justice, Sir Harry Gibbs, Mur- 
phy had resumed his seat on 
fee bench in a determined 
affirmation of his innocence: . 
He had voluntarily given up 
fee seat for nearly two years 
while contesting criminal 

Murphy was a charming, 
gregarious man, whose zeal 
won him many admirers as 
well as making him plenty of 
enemies. His face, with its 
magnificent nose, was memo- 
rable to friend and foe alike. 
On the bench he refused to 
wear a wig. 

Murphy’s first marriage 
ended in divorce in 1967. He 
married again in 1969 and 
leaves a second wife, Ingrid, 
two sons, and a daughter by 
his first marriage. 


Mr Simon Mahon, Labour 
MP for Bootle from 1955 to 
1979, and an Opposition 
Whip from 1959 to 1961, died 
on October 19. He was 72. 

He was bora in Bootle m 
1924, the son of an alderman, 
and educated at St James's 
Elementary School - a Chris- 
tian Brothers establishment - 
and. St Joseph’s College. He 
followed his father to the 
shipyards where, as a member 
of fee TGWU, he took an 
active role in trade unionism. 

• During fee Second' World 
War he served with the Royal 
Engineers, and was later a 
trustee of the Eastern Prison- 
ers of War Fund. 

He had influence in fee 
early days with Harold Wil- 
son. when Wilson moved 
from Ormskirk to Huylon. 
They later drifted apart. 

The family association with 
Boo lie was such that it was 
more like a feudal fief than -a 
constituency. Mahon was its 
mayor in 1962. a post held 
both, by his father, and a 
brother. He was also an alder- 
man of Bootle Borough Coun- 
cil and a freeman of fee 

Though be lived to see fee 
party in his area increasingly 
infiltrated and dominated by 
Trotskyists, he did not secede 
from it. After he stood down 
be took no part in Labour 
Party activities, although he 
did stay in the Party. 

For those who remained on 
the right side of him he was a " 
great companion and a-good 
friend. He did not often speak 
in Parliament, but when he 
did Bootle was never far from 
his lips. ... 

He was a colourful figure in 
the old Labour Merseyside 
establishment, based on the 
Roman Catholic Church. He 
was a staunch opponent of 
abortion, divorce and artifi- 
cial birth control. One of a 
family of ten, he once in- 
formed the House that each of 
them had ’“enriched my 
mother's mind and heart”. 

Tall, florid and wife an 
expansive, military mous- 
tache, he looked like a ser- 

Hemamed.m 1941, Veron- 
ica Robertshaw, who survives 
him. There were no children 
of the marriage. 


Professor Edward UlfendorjE 
FBA. writes: 

Your obituary of Hugh 
Pilkington (October 20) refers 
so very aptly to fee two central 
interests to which his tragical- 
ly short life was dedicated: 
education and philanthropy. 

With the influx of African 
refugees during the past ten or 
twelve years, particularly from 
Ethiopia, he opened his spa- 
cious home in Kenya to many 
of these unfortunate victims 
and subsequently financed 
their education in universities 
in this country and in North 

He was unstinting in every- 
thing he did. The devotion to 
him of old and new African 
friends was a wonderful trib- 
ute to his many good and 
unselfish deeds. It will endure 
as a memorial to a- vary 
remarkable and unusual man. 

His Interest in Ethiopia had 
already been manifested in an 
Oxford doctoral thesis on the 
Efeiopic version of the Book 
of Proverbs.' which was ac- 
cepted by the university, in 
1978. Ii deserves to be pub- 
lished. for it is fee only 
scholarly edition of this work. 
Perhaps steps might now be 
taken to make this fine piece 

of research available to com- 
‘ memorate his life. 

I have had candidates more 

brilliant than . Hugh 
rukingtori, but none has been 
more fun iq supervise. At 
times he would drop in of an 
evening in his small private 
aeroplane - and then disap- 
pear, os suddenly as he had 
come, “for just a brief spin to 
Cambridge*’. After his gradua- 
tion he flew my wife and 
myself to Jersey to visit his 
relations. It was a wonderful 

He achieved much in his 44 
years, and his friends and now 
orphaned refugees will miss 
mm poignantly.

The Queen reviews the Gurkha guard of honour after arriving in Hong Kong yesterday. The Nepalese pipe band played a Scottish air for the inspection. 

From Alan Hamilton 
Hong Kong 

Hong Kong yesterday raised 
its head briefly from its eternal 
preoccupation with makin g 

money to welcome probably 
last British monarch who wili 
be able to call the place her 

Fresh from the People’s 
Republic of China, the Queen 
must have been struck by the 
contrast of her own last corner 
of Asia. 

Large crowds marked her 
arrival and passage, but most 
of those on the streets were too 
bnsy sc ur ryin g about their own 

business to stand and stare. 

Instead of temples, she visited 
a bank. 

British monarchs have not 
bothered much with Hong 
Kong since they acquired it in 
1841. This is only the second 
rime they have come visiting; 
the Queen herself was die 
first. In 1975. There is modi 
speculation as to whether this 
visit will be the last, with only 
11 years of British role left 

The new masters are al- 
ready moving in, albeit with 
discretion. Among the wet- 
coming party lined np to greet 
the Queen as she stepped 
ashore was Mr Xu Jiatun, 
officially head of the New 
China News Agency in Hong

Still, it was a fine old 
imperial sight as Britannia, 
escorted by five warships, 
steamed into Victoria Harbour 
on a brilliant morning. The 
harbour was cleared of craft, 
and even the Star ferry was 
stopped for over an hour. Two 
fire-boats sprayed a cascade of 
welcome and a British shore 
battery fired a 21-gun salute. 

Ashore, every one of Hong 
Kong's tower Mocks had its 
knot of security men on the 
skyline. The S pedal Branch of

Even members of the Royal 
household have been ordered 
to cany their passports with 
them at all times, and journal- 
ists and television crews cover- 
ing the event are searched 
several times a day and forbid- 
den to stand in any hot the 
most precisely defined spots. 

Nor had the protocol offi- 
cers in charge of the visit 
forgotten tire minor un- 
pleasantness involving the 
Duke of Edinburgh's remarks 
about China and the Chinese. 
Hong Kong radio broadcast 
the advice mat anyone spoken 
to by the Royal couple should 
not speak to the media.

guard while the Gurkha pipes 
played the slow inarch of the 
Islay Boat Song. A Scottish 
air played by Nepalese in 
South East Asia is one of the 
fading cariosities of empire. 

The Queen, in her reply to 
Sir Edward's welcoming 
speech, took up die theme of 
her visit to China. 

“That visit the first by any 
British sovereign, symbolised 
the new relationship between 
Britain and China, a relation- 
ship in which the agreement 
between the two coon tries on 
the fu tur e of Hong Kong has 
played a significant part. 

“Yon have been promised in 
that agreement that the in- 
stitutions, traditions and way 
of life so important to the

people of Hong Kong will be 
preserved. The agreement, and 
the firm commitment by die 
governments of the United 
Kingdom and China enshrined 
in it will, I trust, be an 
assurance and an 
meat to yon as yon face 
challenges of the future." 

Her final sentence was 
interpreted by some as a last 
farewell, but that is not nec- 
essarily so. “As yon move 
towards a new phase h your 
development onr draughts will 
always be with yon.”

TTie Commons returned 
yesmtfay after the long sum- 
mer recess. 

This annual event is not to 
be confused with the State 
Opening of Parliament, 
which this year foils <m 
November 12. And d»t 
event is not to be confused 
with the Prorogation of Par- 
liament whidi this year fells 
on November 6. 

It is all very well saying mat 
they are not to be confused 
Tbe feet is that they are. Awl 
not only in the public mind. 
Most MPs are just os con- 
fused about them as the rest 
of us. “How long is it between 
Prorogation and the State 
Opening?” you hear them 
asking one another every, 
autumn in dub and corridor. 

“Well, all I know, dear boy. 
is that this year Remem- 
brance Sunday conies in be- 
tween. I know that because 
it’s our wedding 

“What, you Mid Pandora 
got roamed on Remem- 
brance Sunday? That was a 
morbid thing to do, wasn't 


“No, no, it was on a 

-*I don’t remember 
Remembrance Day on a Sat- 
urday. I thought they ar- 
ranged for it always to be on a 
Sunday some time before the 
last war. You must have got 
married a jolly long time 

“Nani), it's Remembrance 
Day that changes every year, 
not our wedding 


“Look here, what's your 
wedding anniversary got to 
do with Prorogation? 

One of the many strengths 
of British parliamentary prac- 
tice is that most MPs and 
ministers do not understand 
it. It is one of the safeguards 
of our liberties. Every time 
anyone looks into the matter, 
they discover that Parliament 
has enormous power. It is 
therefore all to the good that 
so many MPs do not know 
much about how it works, 
and that such matters are left 
to the men in wigs who sit in 
front of the Speaker's Chair. 

This aspect of the constitu- 
tion -tbe theory of the 
separation of ignorance - is 
not to be found in the 
standard textbooks, but is 
rnseperable from all serious 
study of the subjecL

The proeeedfflgs followed

As with an recurring oerc.

for Calor 
Gas group 

By John Bell 
City Editor 

The New York ofl and gas 
group Gulf Resources is mak- 
ing a £750 millioD takeover bid 
for Imperial Continental Gas, 
the company best known for 
its Calor Gas interests. 

Gulfs move comes after 
months of speculation in the 
City with major share stakes 
befog built np by David and 
Frederick Barclay, who own 
34 per cent of CMC, and the 
New Zealand entrepreneur Mr 
Ron Briericy. 

Mr David Barclay, who sits : 
on the Gulf board, said yes- 
terday: “Gulf plans to inject 
new impetus and strategic 
direction into the group’s fop 
management and concentrate 
on the development and 
expansion of Calor Gas pins 
the upstream ofl and gas 

Gulf attempted a market 
raid when the Loudon Stock 
Exchange opened for business, 
offering to buy stock at 530p a 
share. The price immediately 
moved beyond their buying 
price and the attempt was 
called off after 90 minutes. 

The cash terms of 530p a 
share represent a 39 per cent 
premium over the price ruling 
before Gulf began to bufld up a 
stake in May this year. Golf 
and others acting 1 in conceit 
have a stake of 10.6 per cent of 
IC Gas. On news of the 
approach, IC Gas shares 
soared to 553p. 

Commenting on the offer. 
Golfs president Mr Charles 
Klotz said: “We regard the 
offer as fair and generous. 
Shareholders are befog offered 
a substantial bid premium over 
the price current before the 
latest round of bid speculation. 

“In the fight of the historic 
share price performance and 
the overall prospects for the 
company under its present 
management we believe that 
the shareholders are being 
offered a very (air dead.” 

The first City reaction to the 
bid last night was one of 
scepticism. “This may well be 
the. first UK attempt at 
greenmail, with Calf making a 
deliberately low offer to flush 
out a counter-offer from 
elsewhere,” said one trader. 

A natural “White Knight” 
exists in the Belgian group 
Petrofina. IC Gas has a 7 per 
cent stake in Petrofina and 
three of its directors have a 
seat on the Petrofina board. 
The bid came as 1C Gas 
directors were closeted in a 
management conference with 
senior staff 

The Barclay brothers are 
best known for the purchase of 
the Eflerman Lines group 
three years ago. No price was 
given at the time bat it was 
widely believed to be in the 
region of £76 million. 

They own the Howard Hotel 
in London and the Cameron 
and Tollemache breweries 
which they acquired with

The Stock Exchange has 
conceded that its automated 
dealing system for foe equity 
market may not be as perfect 
as it had claimed on Saturday, 
hightening concern over foe 
City's ability to cope with Big 
Bang next Monday, according 
to market sources yesterday. 

The Exchange has had to 
admit that the main network 
of Topic screens linked to its 
Slock Exchange Automated 
Quotations system, on which 
the new screen-based market 
depends, is slow in updating 

One leading market-maker 
estimated that it would cost 
each market participant' 
around £250,000 to insial 
extra equipment to speed up 
the process. 

He said: “The network sys- 
tem of Topic is totally inad- 
equate for SEAQ. 

“At the moment foe Stock 
Exchange's system is simply 
not credible and the Exchange 
has had to abandon the com- 
pletely complacent view it 
held on Saturday.” 

A post-mortem examina- 
tion on the weekend dress 
rehearsal produced a sharp 
difference of opinion between 
market-makers and foe Stock 
Exchange over how well foe 
system bad worked. 

The Topic network — 
screens linked to SEAQ on 

the information in the back of I dealers rely for price 

information — only updates 
prices every 30 seconds which 
dealers say is not fest enough. 
Individual prices can be up- 
dated more quickly, but that is 
inadequate, dealers said.

The four who lit the Big Bang fuse 

By John Hollis 

Big Bang is ihe shorthand 
term for ihe revolution taking 
place in the British financial 
semres industry. More ac- 
curately h applies to the 
changes taking place in the 
Slock Exchange on Monday. 

These arc the abolition of 
fixed minimum commissions 
charged by stockbrokers and 
the abolition of “single- 
capaciiy" — the separation of 
the role or dealing as an agent 
for clients (stockbroking) from 
the role of dealing as a 
principal for one’s own ac- 
count (stockjobbing). The 
Slock Exchange Council de- 
cided that these changes 
would take effect on one day 
rather than being phased in 
over a period — hence the term 
Big Bang. 

From the wealth of com- 
ment and analysis spread over 
acres of newsprint during the 
last couple of years, you might 
suppose dial today sees the 
culmination of a carefully 
prepared scheme of events 
planned and designed by those 
in authority to reform and 
modernize ihe securities busi- 
ness within the United 

Nothing could be further 
from the truth. 

The structure that will 
emerge in two to three years’ 
time, when the dust has 
settled, will be the product of 
the accidental collision of 
three quite separate streams of 
events, which in origin and 
purpose were quite unrelated. 

The first source of change 

A monopoly broken by a 
series of accidents 

Clockwise from fop left: Cec3 Parkinson, a hope that did 
not survive; Edward Heath, power to the OFT; Sr Nicholas 
' - ^is on, he had an agreement; Professor Laurence Gower 
he became a one-man commission on investor protection 

was the decision by Mr Ed- 
ward Heath’s Conservative 
Government to extend the 
remit of the Office of Fair 
Trading to cover the provision 
of services as well as the 
supply of goods. The upshot 
was a report by the OFT 
deploring the lack of com- 
petition m service industries 
and the professions, ev- 
idenced by stockbrokers and 
the professions not being al- 
lowed to advertise. 

As faras the Stock Exchange 
was concerned, under its then 
chairman. Sir Martin Wil- 
kinson, the central issue was 
neatly sidestepped when the 
rules were changed to allow 
brokers to advertise. Almost 
none chose to do so, arguing 
that advertising would only 
attract the sort of clientele 
they were anxious to avoid. 

In the event it was not 
enough to shoot the OFTs 
first fox. After a change of 
government the OFT re- 
turned to the chase. It pro- 
duced a formal case that the 
whole Stock Exchange Rule 
Book should be examined and 
that the Exchange should be 
required to justify its then 
current practice before the 
Restrictive Practices Court. 

Two in particular were 
identified as restricting com- 
petition: the minimum 
commission rule and barriers 
against the admission to 
membership of the Exchange. 
This was a for more serious 

challenge, striking at the root 
of the Stock Exchange’s de 
facto monopoly of trading 
securities in Britain. 

Neither the Office of Fair 
Trading nor anyone else 
seems at any stage to have 
appreciated the true core of 
the Stock Exchange 

This was (and still is) the 
special privilege, granted in 
the Finance Act of 1920, to 
jobbing firms, recognized as 
such by- the Slock Exchange, to 
pay 50p transfer stamp duty 
only when taking up pur- 
chases of stock. Under Stock 
Exchange rules access to this 
privileged group .of traders 
was possible only through the 
medium of a Stock Exchange 
member broker. 

If this concessionary stamp 
duty privilege had beat avail- 
able to dealers outside the 
Stock Exchange, others such 
as merchant hanks could have 
blown open the Stock Ex- 
change monopoly years ago by 
offering dealing facilities to all 

The long-standing aware- 
ness of this fundamental fact 
injected caution into the. an- 
nual pre-Budget representa- 
tions made by the Stock 
Exchange to the Chancellor of 
the Exchequer. To have abol- 
ished stamp duty on the 
transfer of securities would 
have automatically opened 
the Stock Exchange and its 
jobbers to unrestricted 

The Office of Fair Trading, 
not perceiving this truth, 
chose to press its case through 
the more tortuous process of 

The Stock Exchange pro- 
tested that this was not an 
appropriate method of going 
about things not least because 
the Restrictive Practices 
Court, while empowered to 
ban practices which it found 
objectionable, bad no duty to 
propose or design improved 
practices to take their place. 
The existing complex and 
interlocking Rule Book might 
have to be discarded and no 
new set of rules put in its 

With the return of the 
Conservative Government in 
1979, the Stock Exchange 
lobbied energetically for the 
withdrawal of the Restrictive 
Practices case. 

Not until the second 
Thatcher Government was 
elected id 1983 did it receive a 
response. In July of that 
. in return for the 
Exchange’s agreement to abol- 
ish minimum commission 
rates within three years, Mr 
Cecil Parkinson, then Sec- 
retary of State for Trade and 
Industry, agreed the legal ac- 
tion under the Restrictive 
Practices Acl 

When Mr Parkinson told 
Parliament about his agree- 
ment with Sir Nicholas 
Goodison, chairman of the 
Stock Exchange, he said he 
hoped that the -abolition of 
minimum commissions 
would not necessarily end the 
separation of jobbing from 
agency broking. 

It was a hope that barely 
survived Mr Parkinson’s brief 
tenure of office: 

The separation of function 
of broker and jobber, so 
distinctive a feature of the 
London market, in foot dated 
Only from 1908. Minimum 
commissions were introduced 
about 18 months later to 

mum commissions, which 
comes into effect next Mon- 
day. inevitably involved the 
simultaneous abolition of sin- 
gle capacity trading. 

The second stream of events 
leading to the new order has 
its origins in the development 
of the Euromarkets which 
have led to many foreign 
investment and commercial 
banks establishing themselves 
in London. 

This stream was swollen by 
the abolition of British ex- 
change control in 1979. Ini- 
tially, freedom from controls 
over the movement of capital 
was greeted with delight 
within the London Stock Ex- 
change. It would give member 
firms the opportunity they 
craved to develop their busi- 
ness for British diems in 
overseas stocks. Foreign bro- 
kers, already in London for 
Euromarket dealings, saw the 
same opportunity. The Ameri- 
cans, m particular, un- 
trammelled since 1975 by set 
■minimum commission rates, 
seized the opportunity to de- 
velop equity business for Brit- 
ish institutions in overseas 

Shortly afterwards, the 
American courts delivered 
several judgments which in- 
dicated that American fidu- 
ciary investing institutions 
foiling to seek investment 
opportunities abroad were 
negligent Previously, the re- 
ceived wisdom was that it 
would be rash and imprudent 
to look outside the American 

After many years of invest- 

tiie investor 

defend “angle capacity” by 
preventing the newly purified 
jobbers to direct business 
through complacent brokers 
to their erstwhile clients and 
counterparties on privileged 

One rule could not survive 
without the other. From this 
point, the abolition of mini- 

mem isolationism, American 
investors began to wake up to 
the rest of the world and the 
opportunities it provided. 
Again the American invest- 
ment houses, through their 
London offices, were ideally 
placed to take advantage of 
this change. As a result British 
brokers, handicapped by the 
obligation to charge fixed 
minimum commissions, came 
under increased competition 
from foreign houses, even on 
their home ground. 

The London Stock Ex- 
change was forced to a de- 
cision — if you cannot beat 
them, let them join you. 

Foreign brokers, banks and 
institutions were admitted as 
members of the London mar- 
ket So, too, were British 
institutions which previously 
had figured in the market only 
as clients. 

The whole process has been 
greatly accelerated by the in- 
troduction of electronic 
means of disseminating 
information, orders and 
confirmations and the im- 
minent approach of new sys- 
tems which will allow 
execution of the mass of 
routine market transactions 
without human intervention 
beyond the pressing of a key. 

The third stream of events 
is not yet fully in play, though 
it is already causing eddies 
and whirlpools. 

It originated in the appoint- 
ment, by the Department of 


Shadow over Beazer’s glitter 

to 16.1 

Things have not been going 
well for CH Beazer. the 
housebuilding and construc- 
tion group, since it an- 
nounced its plans for the £1 90 
million acquisition of Gifford 
Hill & Company Inc in the 
United Stales, to be paid for 
by a 2 for 3 rights issue. 

The rights issue, pitched at 
I SOp last September when the 
share price was 220p. seemed 
safe enough at the time. But 
the threat of rising interest 
rales has returned to haunt 
the construction business, 
causing the sector to weaken. 

And Beazer’s shareholders 
have reservations about the 
wisdom of this move into the 

Bcazcr had long been look-

Add to that the risks atten-

graveyard for unwary British 
companies, and the distinct

substantial chunk of the new

Low & Sonar 

Low & Bonar's hectic re- 
structuring and expansion 
p ro g r a mme burst into life 
agam yesterday with three 
acquisitions worth up to a 
maximum £46 million. 

After a £33 million spend 
in the first half on four 
packaging and plastics com- 
panies, the addition of the 
latest three electronics firms 

achieves Bonar’s goal of 
reaching sufficient critical 
mag in its four chosen 
divisions. Shareholders can 
now expea a bit of a breather. 

The acquisitions are Pow- 
ertec in California, for $43.8 
million (£30.6 million), and 
the British companies; Ad- 
vance Power Supplies for 
between £8 million and £10.6 . 
million, and Advance Bryans 
Instruments for between £1.6 
million and £4.8' million, 
depending on future profits. 

The power supply and 
instrumentation activities of 
Bonar will be greatly 
strengthened by the addi- 

Powertec, which supplies 
customers in computers, tele- 
communications, medical 
equipment and control and 
office systems, is suffering 
from a profits hiccup. Un- 
expected losses from an ac- 
quisition depressed profits to 
$15 million in the nine 
months to the end of July. 

Annual profits are usually 
about the $5 million mark 
and are expected to recover to 
at least this level next year. 
The exit p/e ratio at that level 
is a reasonable 14 times. 

Powertec will push- up the 
proportion of Bonar's profits 
from North America to 
nearly 45 per cent which is 
high enough for the company. 

Low & Bonar has chosen 
the now conventional vendor 
placing with clawback route 
as its funding method. How- 

issue is termed, is available 
on a minimum two for seven 
basis at 225p. 

Bonar’s shares have had an 
excellent run from a low of 
163%p this year to a high at 
263p. The I7p slip yesterday 
from the peaks to 246p 
should only be short-term. 


The initial rapture which 
greeted Underwoods' market 
debut has left the high street 
chemist with a share price 
which it is still trying to live 
up to. 

Not that there is anything 
wrong with the business. 
Quite the opposite, as 
yesterday's interim * results 
show. Pretax profits for the 
six months to July 31 rose 55 
per cent to £1 million on 
turnover up 23 per cent to 
£20.5 million. 

By the year end it wiD have 

added eight stores. It is also 
spending £750,000 on 
refurbishment, all to be paid 
for out of cash flow, leaving 
the company with no net debt 
at the year end. 

Bui assuming it makes £3 2 
million- pretax for the year as 
a whole, the shares are still on 
a multiple of more than 20. 
And a 20 to 25 per cent 
increase in 1987 with a 
slightly higher tax charge still 
implies a 17 times multiple 
on a two-year view. 

The company has declared 
its first interim dividend of

the merchant bank, has

therefore a mere 2 per cent

r-M *li 

Trade and Industry, of Profes- 
sor Laurence “Jim” Gower as 
a one-man commission to 
report on the system of inves- 
tor protection in the United 
Kingdom. The comparatively 
minor scandals that gave rise 
to Professor Gower's appoint- 
ment were nothing to do with 
the stock market as such — 
they arose in areas of fringe 
investment over which the 
Government was directly, if 
ineffectively, rsponsible. 

The result has been an 
increasingly turgid flow of 
reco m menat ions, proposals, 
draft legislation, amendments, 
further consultations and yet 
further amendments that 
should coalesce in the Finan- 
cial Services Act. When this 
happens. House of Lords and 
the Labour party willing. Par- 
liament will be asked to 
approve a delegation order 
transferring the powers so 
Laboriously accumulated by 
the Secretary of Stale for 
Trade and Industry to the 
Securities and Investments 
Board under Sir Kenneth 
BerrilL It will be hte task to 

the newframework for*foves- 
tor protection, give a lick of 
paint to the superstructure, 
tune the engines, and set sail 

Already the Stock Exchange 
and others concerned with the 
management and operation of 
markets in investments have 
bad to take account of the new 
design, as it emerges, in 
making their own plans. Al- 
though not strictly part of the 
Big Bang, the new supervisory 
regime has had profound ef- 
fects — and it is important to 
realise that today’s explosion 
has occurred without regard 
for the impending regulatory 

If the House of Lords, 
overwhelmed by countless 
new amendments of an ever 
more complex nature, refuses 
or foils to pass the Financial 
Services Bill, minimum 
commissions will not be re- 
imbursed nor will there be any 
sudden separation of the job- 
bers and brokers trading in 
harness on Monday for the 
first time for 80 years. 

Oddly enough, when the 
new paraphernalia of legisla- 
tion and SIB rules come into 
ftift effect next summer the 
result may be to reverse and to 
constrain the new freedom of 
action within die Stock 

When Professor Gower 
drew up his report, the checks 
and balances of the separation 
of function between brokers 
and jobbers were still in full 
force. The legislation based on 
his report will come into effect 
in quite a different environ- 
ment Let no-one pretend that 
this is the consequence of a 
carefully designed plan. 

Even within the narrower 
field of the stock market 
much of what is happening 
today is the product of a 
combination of events and 
pressures which were foreseen 
only dimly by those involved. 
The Big Bang is the result of 
economic forces moving to fill 
a vacuum and of competing 
ambitions colliding and lock- 
ing together to form a ram- 
shackle (though it is hoped 
stable) framework. 

The outcome is that the 
Stock Exchange has, in es- 
sence, reverted to the form of 
dealing in use in the 19th 
century. Thanks to the new 
information technology, the 
system now embraces many 
more securities and many 
more investors than was pos- 
sible 100 years ago. 

To be feir ft is also the 
system already in use in the 
Euromarkets in the American 
over-the-cotmter market (Na-‘ 
tional Association of Securi- 
ties Dealers Automated 
Quotation) both of which are 
also based on electronic 
information systems. 

The author, a director of 
Dewe Rogerson, is 
expressing his own views. 



Silentnight Holdings, the 
bed and furniture makers, 
made pretax profits in the six 
months to August 2 of £1.43 
million compared with a pre- 
vious first-half loss of 
£820,000. Turnover rose 23.7 
per cent to £39.6 million. 

COMMENT Kenneth Fleet 

Financial Bill leaves 
the arguments raging 

The House of Lords has managed to 
dig through the mountains of amend- 
ments needed to complete the report 
stage of the Financial Services Bill, 
but even that has left a number of 
thorny - issues unresolved. In Par- 
liament, there is likely to be some 
unusual argument over detail at the 
third reading stage in the House of 
Lords and then the Commons has to 
review the amendments at speed. 

Much of the real argument will now 
transfer to detailed negotiations over 
rules between the Securities and 
Investments Board and and the 
various industry interests represented 

in the self-regulatory organizations. 

The Stock Exchange, for instance, 
remains deeply unhappy about the 
proposals for a joint industry-wide 
compensation fund to pay investors in 
the event of failures among financial 
services firms. The objections are 
substantial The Stock Exchange has 
traditionally put no limit on 
compensation. From Monday, there 
will be a £250,000 limit — applying to 
all clients. But to spread the net wide 
and persuade all to join the universal 
scheme, there may now have to be a 
much smaller upper limit on 
compensation, applying only to pri- 
vate clients. 

This clearly represents a dilution in 
protection for investors on the Stock 
Exchange, and particularly large 
investors, as a result of measures 
supposed to increase protection else- 
where. The principle, it appears, has 
now been lost The argument is over 
the actual monetary limit on 
compensation, which The SIB wants 
to pitch as low as £30,000. The Stock 
Exchange would be right to press for a 
higher figure — at least in six figures, 
although that would not meet its 
principled objection. If such a limit 
were to prove unacceptably expen- 
sive, it would imply that Stock 
Exchange firms were supporting oth- 
ers regulated by organizations that 
adopt lower standards — in the real 
sense that their members are more 
likely to go bust 

The battle over the polarization of 
banks and building societies' role as 
insurance and investment brokers will 
also now go to the SIB. In the Lords, 
Lord Cameron of Lochbroom, the 
Lord Advocate, succeeded in having a 
bank-supported amendment with- 
drawn on the understanding that the 
matter was subject only to an SIB 
discussion document rather than a 
firm proposal So everything is to be 

The issue is apparently simple. 
Should the' banks continue to be 
allowed to sen their own products — 
such as unit trusts — and also advise as 
apparently objective brokers, or must 
they choose between the two? The 
argument focuses, however, on a 
paradox. The increased mixing of 
functions is a strong feature of Big 
Bang. But the separation of functions 
forms a key element of the original 
plan for investor protection in the 
hitherto murky world of retail life 
assurance broking. 

There have been for too many 

brokers who pose as giving indepen- 
dent advice but actually try to sell the 
same favoured product to investors 
regardless of their need. The banks 
argue that they are not like that. Yet 
bank managers are under the same 
pressures as anyone else. It is perfectly 
true that within their Stock Exchange 
operations, the new conglomerates 
will be allowed to rely on disclosure to 
accomodate the dual roles of principal 
and agent. But it would be no great 
loss for the banks to choose at the re- 
tail level for the greater general 
protection of small investors 

Marketing Airways 

The Government's privatization pro- 
gramme proceeds apace. The late 
autumn will be illumined by the huge 
British Gas issue and the early weeks 
of the New Year will witness the much 
delayed take-off of British Airways. 

The hardened stock market op- 
erator and the political cynic would 
argue that it is just a question of price. 
But that is by no means the whole 
story. For those with some experience 
of share buying, an offer price that 
promises a quick profit might be 
enough. In the cause of wider share 
ownership, among the public at large 
and among employees, the price of the 
stock is demonstrably not enough. All 
the big privatization issues, and some 
of the smaller ones, have had to be 
marketed: special terms for employees 
and customers, expensive advertising 
campaigns and diligent public 

The hype has worked. So well, in 
fact, that some of the shrewd prac- 
titioners who have been involved say 
they are alarmed at the ease with 
which shares have been sold to 
millions of people who can have no 
conception of the realities of equity 

The British Airways issue will be an 
interesting test It may be the world’s 
favourite airline and a company to 
which people can easily relate, but its 
profitability and prospects in a 
fiercely competitive and cyclical inter- 
national market will always raise 
questions in investors’ minds. The 
inducements to buy at the time of the 
flotation, for BA employees and 
members of the public alike, are 
tantalising. The marketing promises 
to be thorough and the price, when it 
is.finaUy fixed, will be tempting, in the 
market conditions of the time. 

But how will the stock market look 
in January-February? No one can 
possibly have the answer. What is true 
is the Government will do all within 
its power to try to ensure that it is 
behaving itself A revival in its 
political fortunes as measured by the 
public opinion polls (starting today?) 
would help enormously. Together 
with a continuation or the 
Chancellor’s relaxed attitude to the 
excessive increase in the money 
supply. As long as the supply of broad 
money (sterling M3) in the system is 
rising fester than gross domestic 
product, money will find its way into 
the stock market 

News background 

Late starter behind Ward 
White’s rise and rise 

The swoop on LCP Hold- 
ings, the car parts retailer and 
investment group, adds yet 
another chapter to the remark- 
able growth story of Ward 
White, once a sleepy North- 
amptonshire shoe maker and 
now on the threshold of 
becoming a major inter- 
national trading group. 

Mr Philip Birch, the Ward. 
White chairman, once admit- 
ted be was a late starter in the 
takeover field. He has been 
making up for lost time so fast 
that the City has hardly been 
able to catch its breath after 
one deal before another is 
immediately lined up. 

He came to Ward White in 
1967 as a consultant and after 
helping it through loss-making 
years made the all-important 
decision in the early 1980s to 
concentrate on retailing rather 
than manufacturing. This her- 
alded a breakneck pace of 
expansion, creating a vast 
chain of almost 900 stores 
throughout Britain and sev- 
eral hundred others in the 
United States, ranging from 
shoes, to car parts, DIY and 

Mr Birch first made the 

FiuHp Birch: a long way 
from running shoe shops 

stock market take notice when 
he paid Burmah £52 million 
for Halfords, the motor acces- 
sories chain, later pumping 
the foiled Motorist Discount 
Centre chain into the busi- 

Last year, he made two 
more crucial acquisitions, 
paying £53 million for the 
Owen Owen department store 
group, and £19 million for the 
Zodiac toy shops business. 

Mr Birch claimed that Ward 
White could only improve the 
chain of 21 Owen Owen 
stores. Its sales per square foot 

were £108 compared with 
£1 55 for Debenharns and £450 
for Marks and Spencer. 

Some people questioned 
whether he had the expertise 
to operate big city stores. 
“People used to say all we 
knew about was running shoe 
shops. I think we have shown 
we can do more than that.” 

His determination to break 
into the DIY market led him 
to his next major deal — the 
acquisition of the chain of 65 
Payless outlets for £94 mil- 

But Mr Birch has always 
been keen to spread his wings 
in the United States where he 
has the Hofheimer shoe chain, 
based in Vlrgina. LCP, 
through hs Whitlock group, 
sells car parts to Americans as 
Halfords does at home, and 
would be a logical extension of 
Ward White’s ambitions. 

In three years, the stock 
market value of Ward White 
has gone up from under £40 
million to more than £300 
million. But one thing is dear. 
Even if Mr Birch foils in his 
latest takeover, it will not be 
the last.

in US merger talks 

The investment- manage- 
ment group Touche Remnant 
is in talks which may lead to a 
merger with one of the world’s 
hugest insurance companies. 
Metropolitan Life of the UST 

If the talks are successful, 
TR would become the inter- 
national asset management 
ann of the Metropolitan Life 
group, which last year hnd 
j««t$ of S&2 billion (£57.3 
bilhonjaod total revenues of 
523 billion. Its British subsid- 
iary Albany Life has funds of 
around £500 million under 

One family in five in the US 


By John Ben, City Editor 

and Canada is said to have a 
Metropolitan Life policy. 

TR’s chairman. Loro Rem- 
nant, said yesterday: “The 
power of Metropolitan Life is 
enormous. It has 1 1,000 sales- 
men in the US. Subject to 
assurances about our contin- 
ued independence of action, 
they could' enable us to de- 
velop our business much more 

No price has been 
but City estimates put a value 
of between £85 million and 
£100 million on TR, whose 
share capital is held by the 10 
investment trusts within the

TR group. A deal on those 
terms could add about 5 or 6 
per cent to the combined net. 
asset value of the trusts 

The TR strategy has been to 
remain as independent invest- 
ment managers rather than 
merge wilha banking, broking 
or market-making conglom- 

Lord Remnant said yes- 
terday that a change of owner- 
ship of the group need not 
affect the group's indepen-

China Sea 
pull-out by 

-From Stephen Leather 
Hong Kong 

One of the main companies 
involved with China's oD 
exploration programme is la- 
minating its drilling activity in 
the South China Sea. 

Pennzoil in America was 
one of the 33 oil companies 
which submined tenders for 
oil contracts in 1982. Bui the 
company found no trace of oil 
in five wdls in the Beibu Gulf 

“They are probably the 
driest in the world,” said Mr 
Geoige Leon, PennzoiTs fi- 
nance and administration 

Now the company has de- 
cided to dose its base in- 
Zhanjiang, Guangdong, and is 
not interested in new offshore 
licences in China. 

But Mr Leon said Pennzoil 
will maintain its presence in 
Peking and may look fin* 
onshore contracts.

The market relaxed slightly, 
though it was by no means 
convinced that the risk of a 
further rise in base rates had 
evaporated. It was hilled by a 
modest improvement in ster- 
ling and some baying attmttkm 
to pSts. Offers bepu to appear 
in interbank term deposits and 
buyers nibbled in places at 
sterling certificates of deposit 
It helped that money con- 
ditions were comfortable.

Building better homes 
for Londoners 

Contact us on 04862-70818 

Li 1 1 , 1 , IM 

The oprimisoi of the developer still keen 
to build along Spain's Costa del Sol 
seemingly has no bounds. In spite of 
what appears to be a saturated leisure 
home market, there is no shortage of new 
schemes being built, aimed at the British 
buyer who currently accounts for 80 per 
cent of all second-home purchases in the 

Increasingly, purchasers are commit- 
ting themselves to mortgage agreements 
to fund their investment overseas and, as 
the sums of money involved can be high, 
it is essential to use a totally sound 
source of finance. Anyone borrowing 
privately through the developer should 
have professional advice to ensure the 
payments wfii be property registered and 
that an independent solicitor checks the 
legalities of the agreement 

The high street banks in this country 
win all consider the idea of a personal 
loan, subject to individual assessment to 
finance an overseas purchase. This will 
usually be repayable over 10 years at 
anything between 3 and 6 per cent over 
the base rate. 

The banks do, however, require UK 
collateral, either in the form of house 
deeds, stocks and shares, or insurance 
policies. Barclays, Lloyds; the Midland 
and National Westminster all stress that 
a loan will be granted only at the bank 
managers discretion, provided their 
criteria are met. 

Views ofthe Med and 
a loth-century castle 

Sunley Holdings, which has net assets 
of more than £50 million, has just 
completed its first Spanish residential 
scheme. It is known as H Rey and is a 
starkly modem whitewashed block of 80 
two-bedroom and three-bedroom apart- 
ments in Fuengirola. 

The facilities include a swimming pool 
and a gymnasium, complete with sauna, 
while golfers are offered half-price 
membership at the nearby Myas Golf 
Gub, which has two 18-hole courses 
designed by Robert Trent-Jones. 

The apartments at El Rey offer a very 
practical concept of holiday living. 
Security is paramount The large recep- 
tion area wfll be manned 24 hours a day, 
there is a flat for a resident porter, video 
entryphones and steel-lined front doors 
are standard, and window grilles abound. 

The block iiteraify adjoins the beach, 
and although Fuengirola is not a pretty 
town, with high-rise blocks predominat- 
ing. El Rey has lovely views towards the 

On the beach: Smiley Holdings' El 

Mediterranean and is overshadowed by 
the ruins of a 10 th-century castle built by 
the Knights Templar, now a national 
monumenL On a more practical note, 
Malaga airport is just 20 minutes' away 
and all the holiday facilities of 
Fuengirola are within walking distance. 

The apartments themselves are all 
similar. The two-bedroom homes all 
have two bathrooms, a large fully-fitted 
kitchen and breakfast room and an L- 
shaped large reception opening on to a 
spacious terrace — all of which have sea 
views. The three-bedroom units have a. 
small open-plan kitchen incorporated 
within the reception room as the third 
bedroom takes the place of the kitchen. 

The half-dozen show flats are designed 
by Mountcurzon Interiors, of Mayfair, 
which, by judicious use of fabric and 
furniture, has successfully conveyed 
impressions of style ranging from a 
straightforward holiday flat to sump- 
tuous apartment living. 

Mountcuraon's Jonn Law says: “We 
have planned three standard pack age s 
costing £7.500, £10,000 and £12,500 but 
obviously can suit a client's individual 

Sunley Holdings* chairman, John 
Sunley. is offering a practical financial 
package to purchasers. First, service 
charges will be fixed, until November 
1988, at about £650 a year, with any 
excess being subsidized by the devel- 
opers. Secondly. Mr Sunley has or- 
ganized lines of finance through five 
different banks. One most attractive deal 
appears to be his arrangement with 
Lloyds Bank in Gibraltar whereby a 
sterling loan of up to 75 per cent of the 
value of the property can be borrowed 
over 15 years at 12.5 per cent 

Fifty-seven two-bedroom and three- 
bedroom apartments are for sale through 
Chestertons at prices ranging from 
£55,000 to £84,000.

rey, a Regency property in more than four acres of gardens and parkland, which 
is for sale with the right to use the tide. The Grade II list house, five miles from 
Guildford, was bailt around 1824 of Bargate stone. It has been restored but re- 
tains older features, including moulded plaster ceilings in the reception rooms. 
The accommodation includes a reception hall, three reception rooms, five bed- 
rooms and a self-contained staff or granny annex e with access from the house or 
the courtyard. The courtyard contains a range of store rooms and a bunding suit- 
able for conversion to a detached cottage. Hampton and Sons and Knight Frank 
& Rutley are asking for offers around £500,000 

More space for living 

There is linie ipora in the prime areas of 
central London for residential develop- 
ments, and when if can be found 
developers tend to build flats to squeeze 
in as many units as possible. 

Two schemes which go against this 
trend have just come on to the market, 
one inSouth Kensington and the other in 
Chelsea. In Hood Street. Chelsea, a 
group of 1 0 substantia] town bouses have 
been built by Harry Nod Ltd, designed 
by the Macdonald Price Partnership, and 
arranged on basement, ground and three 
upper floors. 

They are a blend of modern and 
traditional styles, with decorative brick- 
work and wrought-iron balconies, de- 
scribed as a “modern interpretation of 
the Chelsea style" — if that is identifiable 
— and they are freehold The houses have 
five or six bedrooms, a drawing room, a 
dining room and sitting room with 
balcony, and a paved garden. 

Every one has an integral garage, and 
in these security-conscious times they 
have a video entryphone and wiring for 
security alarms. Since- the houses were 
launched a week ago, 400 people have 
looked round. The show house, costing 
£875.000 including all the contents, and 
four other houses were sold before the 
launch, and the remaining five are on 
offer at prices ranging from £675,000 to 
£715,000 through Jackson-Stops & Staff 
and Barrington Laurence. 

In Onslow Mews West South Ken- 
sington, a new development of 1 5 mews 
houses has been bought by the Hender- 
son Fund for furnished lettings. The Big 
Bang seems to have helped the furnished 
lettings market, and there is a good deal 
of interest from both British and 
American firms. 

. The houses are available only for 
company lets, and it is expected that . 

Americans in particular will be attracted 
to these modern mews properties. An 
American company has already occu- 
pied one house. The lettings, for a 
minimum of a year, are at £425 to £500 a 
week for the two-bedroom or three- 
bedroom houses. Details are available 
from Hampton and Sons. 

A rather different mews development 
is taking shape in Docklands, where 
there is more room, although the very 
high prices reflect both the cost of land 
and the seemingly insatiable demand. 
Grange Walk Mews is a development of 
eight maisonettes and houses built 

Builders have tried to make 
the new houses blend in 

around a cobbled courtyard, four con- 
verted from a Victorian school built in 

The mews is near the site of the 
original Bermondsey Abbey and the 
Bermondsey antique market and is 10 
minutes' walk mom Tower -Bridge. 
However, because the mews is on the 
south side of the river, the properties are 
more affordable than those in Wapping. 

The builders have tried to make sure 
that the new houses blend with the old 
buildings, and the prices range from 
£78,500 fora one-bedroom studio house 
to £138.000 for a two-bedroom house 
with a gallery and a roof terrace. The four 
maisonettes range from £89,500 to 
£118.000 and several of the properties 
have been sold or are under offer. Details 
are available from Savills* Docklands 
office (02-488 9586).

Lifr-off for Kaylon Mark Eaylor in braining yesterday for his European middleweight tide 
contest with Herd Graham at Wembley on November 4 (Photograph: Hugh Rontledge) 

with fourth 

Barney Eastwood, the man- 
ager. may be having problems 
with his main charge, Barry 
McGuigan. but he produced his 
fourth British champion at St 
Andrews Sporting Club, 
Glagsow, on Monday night 
when Dave McAuley won the 
vacant British flyweight 

McAuley. aged 25. a chef from 
Larne, suddenly found his 
punching touch to stop Joe 
Kelly, from Glasgow, after two 
minutes and eight seconds of the 
ninth round. He had been 
strangely ineffective until the 
moment he landed the decisive 
left hook to the body. 

If Kelly, who stands bandy 
five feet tall had problems with 
a lanky opponent. McAuley 
equally had problems with a 
man who frequently defended 
himself by ducking nis head to 
near floor leveL “The only 
reason he did not throw the 
body punch sooner was that he 
was afraid of hitting KeUy on the 
ankle,** Eastwood joked. 

“But to tell the truth he found 
the little man extremely awk- 
ward. He did not do himself 
justice as quickly as be should 
nave done and, on top of that, 
he was more nervous that I 
expected him to be. But he is a 
puncher and he has a puncher’s 
chance with anybody. He can 
also go on the floor himself but 
so for he has always got up." 

ft was McAulev’s thirteenth 
professional contest. 


taken as 
an insult to 

By Michael Coleman 

The derision taken last week 
by the Internationa] Olympic 
.Committee in Lausanne to ex- 
dude a women's modem 
pentathalon contest from the 
1992 Olympic Games despite its 
growing popularity is being 
regarded in me sport as a virtual 

Baseball is now m and pro- 
posals to admit women's soft- 
ball. water skiing, lightweight 
rowing and the combat sport of 
karate and taekwondo have 
been Shelved for consideration 
later. Men's and women's 50- 
meire freestyle swimming and 
men's and women's team ar- 
chery will be introduced at the 
1988 Seoul Games. 

Rejected are bowling, roller 
skating and women's modem 
pentaihaJon, Vitaly Smirnov, 
chairman of . the IOC Pro- 
gramme Committee, has an- 
nounced. It is this flat rejection, 
and it must be said in such 
company, that is considered by 
the sports supporters as a slap in 
the face. 

One of the plus points of 
recent modern pentathalon, 
which since its introduction at 
the Olympic Games of 1924 had 
long been considered a male 
preserve, has been its expansion 
as an event which women are 
perfectly able to tackle. Seven- 
teen countries fielded 48 
competitors at this summer's 
world championships in 
Montecatini Terme, Italy, and 
these were just the top compet- 
itors. Fourteen achieved more 
than the coveted 5,000 points 

Women have been in top 
competition since 1977. the first 
world championship being 
staged at the Crystal Palace, 
London, in 1981, Wendy Nor- 
man, Sarah Parker and Kathy 
Tayler winning the team gold 
for Britain. The expansion since 
has been dramatic, women 
showing just as much fascina- 
tion whh the task of becoming a 
good all round performer, as 
against being a specialist, as the 
mem Viz, also the' “iron man** 
triaihalon contests which are 
flourishing world wide. 

Unless an appeal is successful 
it will be 1996, a decade, before 
the women can get any redress. 
“This is very sad especially as 
the women had taken such giant 
strides," Wille Grut. a former 
general secretary of the sport's 
governing UIPMB and Olympic 
champion of 1948, said. “And 
yet a new sport fbaseball) is 
being introduced and others like ] 
swimming, expanded. Swim- 
ming. a sport in which there 
seem to be for loo marry events 
already — look at Mark Spitz’s 
seven golds at Munich.” 

Another to express bafflement 
was Danny Nightingale, 
development officer for the 
sport in Britain and gold medal 
winner at Montreal and winner 
of the 1979 Moscow Spartakiad. 
“No extra facilities or personnel 
would be required," he pointed 
out. He suspected that the 
sport's cause had not been 
projected adequately at Lau- 

Sarah Parker called it an 
“awful" decision. “How can 
they do this to us when our sport 
is becoming world-wide ?" 


Kookaburra III flourishes 
against her sister ship 


From Keith Wheatley, Fremantle 

Tbe pair of 

f r Kookaburras 

, fought out the 
# closest race seen 
/'?A since the Amer- 
ica’s Cup eli- 
m si urination series 

began before III snatched a two- 
second victory from 1L The two 
golden-hulled boats were within 
30 seconds of each other round 
the 24.5 nautical mile course, 
the lead changing truce on 
upwind tegs. 

When the sister ships went 
around the bottom, leeward, 
mark for the last time Kooka- 
burra ID, skippered by her co- 
designer, Iain Murray, was 
trailing by 18 seconds. All the 
way up the final work, into a 
fresh 24-knot south-westerly, 
Murray dosed the gap on Peter 
Gilmour at the wheel of Kooka- 
burra U, peter EtchdTs cham- 

Gilmour threw a port tack 200 
yards from the line and ran for 
it. Murray was instantly along- 
side him, neck and neck, barely 
the thickness of a mainsail 
between the two bulls. The two 
bowman were so dose they 
could have whispered to each 
other. For the spectators the 
only evidence of who won came 

when Don McCracken on the 
prow of Kookaburra 11 thrust a 
triumphant fist into the air, 
milliseconds before the crack of 
the Royal Perth finish gun. 

Kookaburra Ill's victory con- 
firmed her position at tbe head 
of the Defender series as the 
only undefeated yacht among 
the Australians. But ibe un- 
flinching nature of the contest 
and the magnificent perfor- 
mance from Gilmour and his 
second-string boat reinforced 
the increasingly apparent sup- 
eriority of the Parry syndicates 
over their Bond rivals. 

If the later race was a ruthless 
brawl, the start was a kiss and 
cuddle. There was almost none 
of the tight and efficient tailing , 
that Murray used against 
Australia III on Tuesday. The 
two Kookaburras barely 
acknowledged one another be- 
fore starting equally and head- 
ing off on starboard for almost 
10 minutes without a tack. At 
thetopmark Kookaburra III led 
by 1 1 seconds. After ihe run she 
had stretched it to 17 seconds. 

Up the second work they had 
another long haul on starboard. 
When Murray tacked to lay the 

Bowman escapes death 

Fremantle — Andy Dyer, the 
bowman from South Australia, 
was lucky to escape with bis life 
yesterday. He was swept off die 
pitching foredeck of foe 12- 
metre as she neared the third 
leeward mark and wcat under- 
water wrapped in the spiuuakn 
(Keith Wheatley writes). 

“He was smothered under- 
water in the spinnaker, and 
hanging against the hnU, r> said 
Roger Lloyd, the SA syndicate 
chairman, who saw the in ci d ent 
“It was pretty hair-raising." 

Dyer’s crew-mates aboard 
Sooth Aastrafia managed to 
has! him from of the water and 
immediately withdrew from the 
race. Lloyd described the in- 
cident as a “narrow escape from 
death. Yon can't move wary much 
when you're tied op in a 

“He’s badly braised all over 

and being checked in hospital/ 
Lloyd said. “We hit a huge wave 
jnst as the spinnaker was going 
npu He went off the bow inside 
the kite. 

“Dyer is the luckiest gay 
alive. Tbe boar was doing about 
9.5 knots and we jnst couldn't 
get him ont of the water." When 
crewman and sail were recovered 
both were foil of water. 

They gnys did a really good 
job getting him out, but they are 
all very shaken. Dyer is ab- 
solutely fearless and one of the 
most popular gnys on board," 
Lloyd, an Adelaide insurance 
executive, said. 

Dyer had an eventful race. 
Jnst five minutes before tbe start 
against Australia HI. the SA 
yacht lost her jumper strut. Dyer 
went np the mast to make temp- 
orary repairs — no easy task in 
20 knots of wind- 

mark be found that Gilmour 
was marginally in from and 
better positioned. 

He ducked Kookaburra IPs 
stem and conceded a 22-second 
margin at the second leeward 
marie. On the second, reach 
Gilmour chose to fly a genoa 
rather than his spinnaker. A 
windshift had made the reach 
very shy indeed. Murray ini- 
tially ventured a kite but was 
forced to concede Gilmour's 
wisdom and follow suit. 

In the other races, Australia 

III knew before the start gun 
that she would win. South 
Australia suffered a broken 
jumper strut five minutes ahead 
of thti off and crossed the line 
3mm 30sec adrift. Later in the 
race she had a crewman washed 
overboard and withdrew. 

Steak Kidney started only 
two seconds behind Australia 
IV, sailed flat out for three 
-hours, arid finished nine min- 
utes behind the Lexcen boat. 
Enough said.

Wigan dominate British XV 

Tbe Great Britain team to 
play Australia in the first 
Whitbread Trophy inter- 
national at Old Trafford on 
Saturday contains six Wigan 
players but there is only one 
player in the squad from the 
unbeaten first division leaders, 
St Helens. 

The six from Central Park are 
Joe Lydon at full back, Ellery 
Hanley at centre, Henderson 
Gill on the wing, Ian Poner and 
Andy Goodway in the forwards 
and Shaun Edwards as back 
substitute. Tbe only St Helens 
player to make the final choice is 
Andy Piatt, who is substitute 

Announcing the ride yes- 
terday at the team's training 
headquarters, the Shaw Hill 
Country Club at Choriey, the 
Great Britain coach. Maurice 
BamfonL said: “We have cho- 
sen what we consider the best 
possible team to take on the 

le is 

By Keith Macklin 

“International rugby 
a totally different kettle 
from club rugby. Although we 
have chosen this squad for the 
first international, there are 
other names pencilled in for 
every position." 

Asked if the squad contained 
injury doubts, particularly 
affecting the Widnes half back, 
Tony Myler, and Hanley, 
Bamford said: “All 17 players, 
including the reserves to travel, 
are 100 per cent fit and raring to 
have a go at the Kangaroos." 

Two choices will inevitably 
cause argument among British 
supporters. Joe Lydon gets the 
full bade spot despite strong 
competition from Keitn 
Mum by and Shaun Edwards, 
and in spite of the fact that his 
defence occasionally seems 

tford said: “Joe had a 
great game at full back against 

France and the manager, Les 
Belt in son. and the assistant 

coach, Phil Larder, feel he is the 
best man for the job." 

The other surprise choice sees 
the speedy young Castieford 
centre, Tony Merchant, on the 
wing. In his previous inter- 
national appearance he played 
in his normal dub position of 
centre, but M archant said: “1 
played a full season on the wing 
when I was playing Australian 
dub rugby in Brisbane." 

Issuing a rallying cry, 
Bamford said the training ses- 
sions this week would con- 
centrate on teamwork, team 
spirit, tactics and a major base 
of his approach would be the 
stirring up of British patriotism 
— something which had been 
lacking for a long time.

By Colin McQuQlaii 

Bryan Beeson developed into 
a nationally ranked professional 
under the tutelage of Ian Robin- 
son at Armley in 1984, and 
became one of InterCity's first 
squash consultants after un- 
expectedly reaching tbe final of 
the first national championships 
sponsored by the British Rail 
high speed passenger service. 

Yesterday in the American 
Express Premier League Beeson 
looked set to lead his Chapel 
Allenon side to victory against 
the latest British Rail squash 
enthusiasm, the IntesCity Can- 
nons team, only to be thwarted 
by a sterling performance from 
his former mentor. 

Beeson, now the England 
No. 8. took to the new glass 
court at Cannons Club like a 
duck to water, efficiently 
dispatching Paul Sytnonds, the 
South African No. 1, in straight 
games at third string. Although 
Syroonds trains regularly on the 
glass court it was tbe Chapel 
Alierton lefi-faander who played 
immaculate length and width in 
the unusual environment and 
showed the greater confidence 
with attacking drop shots. 

InterCity-Cannons were 
virtually guaranteed the first 
string win with Jamie Hickox, 
the British under-23 champion, 
continuing against David Pear- 
son in the same fluent style that 
brought him the North of 
England title just 15 hours 
earlier in Manchester. InterCity- 
Cannons also won at fourth 
string through Neil Harvey but 
Danny Lee lost the second string 
match to Stuart Hailstone. 

Robinson, team manager for 
InterCity-Cannons and co- 
owner of the new glass court, 
became embroiled in along five- 
game match against Mark 
Hornby after electing late to 
play himself at fifth string in 
place of Robert Graham, the 
Essex youngster. He won 9-6 in 
the fifth on an outside court 
after Hornby pulled back to 2-2 
and drew him into a 
rallying battle towards the 
of the match.

Sumo wrestlers 
in martial 
arts display 

By Nicolas Soames 

Four huge sumo wrestlers, 
following the tradition where a 
30st weight is normal, are 
among a group of Japanese 
artists appearing at the Wem- 
bley Conference Centre on 

They are pan of the most 
comprehensive display of the 
Japanese martial arts ever seen 
here. Britain has produced its 
own world judo and karate 
champions in Neil Adams and 
Vic Charles, but the appearance 
of no fewer than four Japanese 
world judo champions — 
Kashi wazaku Endo. Nakanishi 
and Yamashita — makes this a 
star-studded occasion. 

Some of the 12 forms of 
martial arts to be seen at 
Wembley are extremely rare, 
and one is being shown outside 
Okinawa for the first time. This 
is motobu udome. a form of 
armed and unarmed hand-to- 
hand combat, which was for 
centuries taught only to mem- 
bers of tbe royal court which 
ruled over the Ryukyu islands. 

Tbe other arts involved are 
kyudo. the way of the bow. 
kendo, the way of the sword; the 
esoteric art of iai-jutsu. the art of 
drawing the sword: naginaia-do, 
the way of the halberd: jukendo, 
the way of the bayonet; and 
karate-do. aikido and shorinji- 
kempo which are all practised in 
this country. 

Op Monday, four sumotori. 
as they are called, will fieht in a 
special ring constructed along 
traditional lines using a clay 
base within a straw circle. The 
remarkably fast and flexible 
wrestlers ©rasp their near naked 
opponents and tiirow them to 
the ground or out of the circle — 
and at 150kg or more, the falls 
can be very heavy indeed. 


Flockton Grey trainer disqualified 

Stephen Wiles, the trainer 
of Flockton Grey, the two- 
year-old gelding which was 
involved in an alleged horse 
racing switch in 1982, yes- 
terday had his licence with- 
drawn and was declared a 
disqualified person for five 

Stephen Wiles and his wile 
Elaine, who were accused of 
entering an unqualified horse 
for a race, admitted to the 
Jockey Club's Disciplinary 
Committee they bad breached 
the Rules of Racing. The 
Committee also accepted an 
admission from Frederick 
Wiles, the father of Stephen 
Wiles, that be was in breach of 
Rule 201 (v). 

The Jockey Qub took no 
action over Mrs Wiles but 
declared that Frederick Wiles 
should be a disqualified per- 
son for three years, until 
October 20, 1989. Being a 
disqualified person is particu- 
larly damaging to a trainer 
because he is not even allowed 
to attend a race meeting as a 

Tbe contention of the 
Jockey Qub was that Good 
Hand, a three-year-old grey 
lookaiike, was substituted for 
Flockton Grey at the last 
minute in the Knighton Auc- 
tion Stakes at Leicester on 
March 29, 1982. Good Hand 
romped home by 20 lengths at 
odds of 10-1. Bookmakers 
refused to pay out on the 
winner and the police had 
been called in. 

In June 1984, Kenneth 
Richardson and Colin 
Mathison, two businessmen, 
and Peter Boddy, a horse box 
driver, all of Driffield, 
Humberside, were fined and 
given suspended sentences at 
York Crown Court for 
conspiracy to defraud book- 
makers over the race. 

A High Court Appeal has

Viators to Cheltenham to- . by Live 
day will be treated to a glimpse 
of Sfieve Felim. the exciting 
young steeplechaser that 
Bishop Auckland trainer Ar- 
thur Stephenson acquired in 
Ireland during the summer 
after he had won two Point-to- 
points. He has made the long

plenary hearing next month. 
The two “greys" involved in 
the alleged switch are cur- 
rently being held at Beverley, 
Humberside, where they are 
being fed and stabled at the 
taxpayers’ expense. 

After protests from 
Humberside County Coun- 
cillors. tbe local police are 
considering civil court 
proceedings to try to establish 
their ownership and who 
should pay for the £10,000 of 
costs of looking after them to 

After yesterday’s two-hour 
hearing at Portman Square, 
lan Percy, tbe solicitor 

representing the Wiles family, 
said:" Mr and Mrs Wiles are 
not unnaturally disappointed 
that the Tribunal felt they 
could take no other course of 
actios. They wish to thank the 
owners who supported them 
during what has been a very 
difficult period.” The family 
individually declined to 

The three-man Jockey Gob 
Disciplinary Committee of Sir 
William Dugdale, the Chair- 
man, Anthony Mildmay- 
White and Michael Wrigfey 
accepted the admissions that 
Stephen Wiles had committed 

breaches of Rules 184 (a). 201 
(iix) and 201 (v) and Mrs Wiles 
had committed a breach of 
Rule 220 (i) of the Rules of 

Under Rule 184 (a), it was 
illegal fora horse to run unless 
it had been in the care of and 
trained by licensed persons for 
14 days beforehand; and 
under Rule 201 (iii) and (v) 
any person who entered a 
horse which be knew or 
believed to be unqualified for 
a race or who deliberately 
misled officials could be dis- 
qualified or otherwise 

• The penalties open to the 
Dicrplinary Committee, who 
yesterday heard submissions 
from the three i ndividuals and 
considered other evidence, 
ranged from a fine of op to 
£1250 to complete ' dis- 
qualification in severe 
breaches of the Rules. 

The bearing is the efimax of 
a “ringer" scandal rivalled in 
recent years only by the 
conspiracy to a defraud case 
involving Gay Future at 
CartmeL, Lancashire, on Au- 
gust Bank Holiday, 1974. 
Tony Collins, die Scottish 
trainer, was disqualified for 
tea years in July, 1977. 

but relatively painless journey 
south nowadays from Co Dur- 
ham for the Lydney Novices 
Chase having already won at 
Sedgefield, Kelso and 
Weatherby this autumn. 

The sight of a horse attack- 
ing the formidable Chelten- 
ham fences with gay abandon 
is one of tbe best in racing and 
that is precisely what we can 
expect After he had won by a 
distance at Weatherby a week 
ago Ridley Lamb, his jockey, 
said that he had never been so 
fast over the fust few fences as 
be had on Slieve Felim. Now 
my feeling is that tbe only 
obstacle boning the way to a 
fourth consecutive success is 
foe nature of those fences at 
Prestbury Park rather than the 
actual quality of the oppo- 
sition. For they can find out 
even the most seasoned cam- 
paigner and in all probability 
Slieve Felim would not have 
got away at Cheltenham with 
the one mistake that he made 
at Weatherby. 

So a safer bet this afternoon 
should be Light The Lot who 
is napped to beat Bold Monk; 
Swift Ascent and Monday’s 
Flat race winner at Leicester 
Height Of Summer to win the 
Behrens Novices Hurdle. Re- 
cently John Jenkins’s five- 
year-old landed odds of 9-2 on 
at Worcester with ease after 
runningso well in his previous 
race at FontweU where he was 
beaten only a length and a half 

In Hope who is 
reputed to be smart. 

Today's programme begins 
with the Rodborough Three 
Year Old Novices Hurdle 
which should provide 
Melendez with his fifth win in 
a' row since Martin 
judiciously paid only 1 . 
gns for turn at Ascot in July 
after he won a moderate race 
for- Guy Harwood at

T he eyes of the world’s turf 
aficionados will be focused 
intently on Pat Eddery at 
Santa Anita on Saturday 
week as the Irish-born ge- 
nius of the saddle attempts to give a 
repeat performance of last year’s win 
on Pebbles in the $2 million Breeder’s 
Cup Tinf when he goes to the start on 
Dancing Brave. 

Blessed with nerves of steel to 

match his ice-cool brain and uncanny 

tactical know-how, Eddery, aged 34, 
is relishing the prospect of riding 
Dancing Brave round the sharp 
banked bends of the Californian 
track's uma-tenths of a mile circuit at 
the foot of the San Gabriel 

“Dancing Brave is an easy horse to 
handle,” he said, “and Santa Anita 
will seem like a paradise compared 
with that very tight grass track at 
Aqueduct last autumn.” 

The jockey has several other 
promising mounts besides Khaled 
Abdulla's brilliant winner of the Prix 
de TArc de Triomphe Tm riding 
Then Again for Luca Cumani in the 
Mile on Turf and Double Schwartz in 
the Turf Sprint. And possibly Polonia 
in the Juvenile Fifties and Bold 
Arrangement in the S3 million 
Breeder’s Cup Classic." Bold 
Arrangement is trained by Give 
Brittain and showed his ability to 
handle a dirt surface when narrowly 
beaten by Ferdinand in the Kentucky 

The breakneck pace of Eddery’s 
existence and also his changing 
lifestyle were dramatically illustrated 
during the last weekend in July. After 
finishing unplaced on Dare Say in the 
2.00 at Ascot on the Friday he flew to 
Ireland where he won four races at the 
Tipperary night meeting, where he 
rode four winners. The following 
afternoon he was tack on the Royal 
course in time to partner Dancing 
Brave to an exhilarating victory in the 
.King George VI and Queen Ehzabeth 
Diamond Stakes. 

Just under a fortnight later came 
the official announcement of one of 
the worst-kept secrets in the game. 
Next year Eddery will no longer be 
travelling to Ireland. Instead he will 
be enjoying an equally hectic exis- 
tence, flying to France and sometimes 
to the United States to ride some of 
the 190 horses foal Khaled Abdulla 
has in training in those countries as 
well as in Britain. 

The top jockeys have always 
demanded a king’s ransom, but the £2 
million contract for the next three 
years that Eddery is reported to have 
signed with the Saudi Arabian poten- 
tate stfll represents a lot of money, 
judged by anybody’s standards. And 
that is without taking into account 
riding fees, presents and possible 
shares in potential stallions. 

The contract starts in 1987. So the 

Pat Eddery’s growing 
reputation as the greatest 
jockey in the world and 
Dancing Brave’s claim to 
be the greatest horse face 
their most searching test 
in the Breeders’ Cup in 
California next week. 

Michael Seely profiles 
Eddery, a ‘natural* genius. 

traditionally loyal world of racing was 
outraged, if not particularly sur- 
prised, when it was announced a week 
before foe race that Eddery was to 
take over from Grevifle Starkey, Guy 
Harwood’s stable jockey, on Dancing 
Brave, in the Prix de l’Arc de 
Triomphe. Eddery had been on board 
Abdulla’s champion at Ascot solely 
because of an injury to Starkey. 

But in racing nowadays, as in most 
other sports, the end justifies foe 
means. And foe critics were silenced 
as Eddery sent the favourite speeding 
pest his rivals to snatch Europe's 
richest racing prize from Bering, foe 
pride of France. 

And now foe potent combination 
of Eddery and Dancing Brave are to 
take on foe pick of foe top one-and-a- 
balf toilers in North America on 
Saturday week at Santa Anita for the 
Breeders’ Cup Turf Stakes. 

The jockey's handling of Dancing 
Brave m foe Arc was foe acme of 
perfection. And in his mount, now 
widely acclaimed to be the most 
versatile and talented thoroughbred 
since Mill Reef and Brigadier Gerard, 
Eddery had, as already shown at 
Ascot, found the ideal partner for his 

Eddery is a cool customer. Like 
many great athletes he has a slow 
pulse rate and a placid temperament. 
Not a flicker of emotion disturbed his 
features as he brought Dancing Brave 

stand as thousands of spectators 
erupted with cheers of joy. 

B ut foe occasion had got to 
him all righL “The at- 
mosphere was electric. It 
was good,” he said. “I was 
very happy in myself and 
foe crowd was going absolutely crazy. 
I’ve never known anything like it at 
Longchamp, and I have ridden in 
quite a few Arcs.” 

Jeremy Tree, for whom Eddery 
won last year’s Arc on Rainbow 
Quest, after foe disqualification of 
Sagaoe, has been a longtime admirer 
both of his retained jockey and also 
Piggottr - 

“Pat may not be foe wnrtrTs 
greatest conversationalist, bin his 
intelligence certainly shows through 
in his riding. For foe past two or three 
seasons I reckon he's been riding at 
least as well as Lester,” he said. 
Eddery himself is wen aware that be is 
only just emerging from the shadow 
of the maestro. “The man was there. 
He’s been a legend for a long time,” 
he said. “I reckon I have been lucky to 
have been around and to have 
watched him ride and to have ridden 
against him.” 

Harwood also found Eddery to be a 
man of few words m their pre-race 
conference in the tree-lined parade 
ring on that sultry afternoon in Paris. 
“I m tended to have a discussion with 
him,” said the trainer. “But all he said 
was 1 think I am going to hold him 
up’. So I just told him that foe horse 
bad never been better and let him get 
on with it” 

However, one of foe sharpest 
racing brains in the business lurks 
behind that composed facade. And 
foe normally rather flat tones took on 
an urgent note as he described foe 

“The one thing that I was certain 
about was that Dancing Brave would 
stay. I was even more convinced after 
Ascot. But the Arc was an entirely 
different affair. They went like foe 
clappers and Dancing Brave still 
bolted in. The only reason Shaidari 
was catching him was because I'd hit 
foe from far too soon. That was my 

Ever since his first Derby victory 
on Grundy in 1975 for Peter Wafrvyn, 
Eddery has been associated -with 
many outstanding horses, whose 
chief asset has been a telling burst of 
finishing speed. The most spectacular 
of these colts was undoubtedly 
Golden Fleece, winner of the 1982 
Derby, while 1984 was foe year of El 
Gran Senor. “He's easily the best 
miler I’ve ever sal on," he said. 

A s with all jockeys Eddery 
finds that travelling [daces 
the biggest strain on his 
system. “I have been lucky 
enough to have foe use of a 
helicopter this season. It's been a 
tremendous help. The money, of 
course, was a big inducement where 
foe Abdulla job was concerned, but I 
am also very relieved to be able to 
remain in England-on a Saturday and 
not have logo to Ireland all the tune.” 

He has to impose an iron self- 
diserpline to keep his weight down to 
the required 8st 4!b. “It’s a constant 
struggle, but I don’t moan about It 
Just a cup of tea for breakfast and an 
evening meal, say a bit offish, a steak, 
or lamb cutlets. I have got a sauna In 
foe house which 1 -use most days. I 
never let up, not even in foe winter. 
You don’t get - many rides if your 
weight goes up to 8st 81b.” 

Eddery enjoys complete privacy on 
his 1 08-acre farm just outside Thame, 
where he lives with his wife, Carolyn, 
daughter of foe late Manny Mercer, 
and his two young daughters. When I 
spoke to him he had spent a rare day 

His kingdom is jealously guarded 
by Ellis, his brother-in-law, who acts 
as chauffeur, agent and general 
minder. A burly, energetic figure, 
with a rolling boxer's walk, he 
certainly has a full-time job. 

Apart from foe Abdulla retainer 
Eddery has also been engaged to ride 
for Maktoum al Maktoum next 
season. This will, of course, not apply 
to horses that the Crown Prince of 
Dubai has in training with Michael 
Stoute and Henry Cecil who already 
have their contract riders in 
Swinbnrn and Sieve Caulhen. “Willie 
Carson will probably still be first 
choice in John Dunlop's suing as 
well” said Ellis. “But we're going to 
have a seven-day week as Fat will also 
be riding a lot for Andre Fabrfe in 
France on Sundays.” 

Most experts describe Eddery as a 
“natural” genius. And if you watch 
him walking a horse around foe 
paddock with a long length of rein 
and his bauds resting quietly on foe 
animal's withers, you can see how his 
total confidence in himself transmits 
itself to his mount It is foe Arab 
proverb of “fear travels down foe 
reins", working in reverse. “A lot of 
this goes back to Frenchie Nicholson, 
who taught me so much at foe 
beginning," he said. 

The pressure is now ou Eddery as 
he strives to prove his right to the 
mantle of Piggbtt which has fallen so 
naturally on to his determined shoul- 

N owa time of planning and 
reorganization lies ahead. 
“1 am looking forward to 
going to the Breeders 
Cup,” he said, “There’s 
not only Dancing Brave, but John 
Gosden might well have Hatim 
qualified for me to ride in the Mile 
race as wefl. We are also going to have 
to have a conference to find out just 
how often I might be needed in 
California next year." 

Like Piggott, Eddery comes from 
racing stock. His lather Jimmy was a 
champion jockey in Ireland and his 
maternal grandfather. Jack Moylan 
rode several classic winners. When 
Eddery senior, aged and weighing 
only 4 st 3 crossed foe Irish Sea for the 
first time he sported a large label 
round his neck bearing the inscrip- 
tion; “Jimmy Eddery — to Mr Persse, 
Stockbridge, England.” 

Bnt his fifth son, Patrick James, has 
written out his own ticket It has 
carried him to his destination, the top 
ofhis chosen profession. And there he 
dearly intends to remain.

Athey cricked by captain 
while playing kickabout 




- fT- - 

m*** ■* 

r . 4pw y . *■ 

Bill Athey is likely to miss 
England's one-day match at 
Lawes in Queensland today 
because of a football injury. The 
.Gloucestershire batsman, aged 
39, was unintentionally cricked 

- by his captain, Mike Gatling, 
who is the ■brother of the 
Brighton footballer, Steve 
Gatting, during an impromptu 
kickabout after Monday’s game 
in Bundaberg, 

The trouble came when 
Gatting and Athey went for the 
same ball. “Mike's knee caught 
Bill in the back of his calC" 
Micky Stewart, the assistant 
manager, said. “It was a com- 
plete accident.” 

Athey was not particularly 
worried by it overnight but 

- yesterday morning he was limp- 
ing badly and did not take pah 

-in the squad's first training 
■ session at The Gabba, 

‘ Brisbane's Test ground. Most 

- practices start with the players 
kicking a football to loosen up 

.‘and Stewart said that would 
continue. “We don’t play any 
competitive football. Bill’s in- 

- jury' was just unfortunate.” 

Athey scored a fine 73 not out 
' against Queensland Country XI 
and is receiving treatment from 
Laurie Brown, the physiothera- 

pist, who is well used to dealing 
with football-style injuries from

McDermott fights for place 

Craig McDermott, an 
outstanding success on 
•tusiralia's tour of England last 
year, is fighting for hts placein 
tlus winter’s Ashes series. The 
Queensland fast bowler, aged 
21. took 30 wickets in six Tests 
against England, but has strug- 
gled to live up to that form ever 
since. He was dropped for the 
final Test in India last week and 
with Geoff Lawson on the way 
hack after injury- competition 
among Australia's fin bowlers 
will be keen in the months 

McDermott did not sound 
over confident when he arrived 
home in Brisbane yesterday. He 
said: “Hopefully I’ll play for 
Australia again — at least rd like 
to think so". 

The powerfully bufo young- 
ster should have an early chance 
to get among England's tatsmen 
again when Queensland race the 
touring team in a four-day game 
which starts on Friday. 
McDermott and fellow Queens- 
land Test men .Allan Border and 
Greg Ritchie are all expected to 

cenied, but I don’t think it win.” 

Meanwhile, Allan Braider, the 
Australian captain, is expecting 
a “friendly" Ashes series against 
England. Border, who is to lead 
the Rest of the World against 
MCC in a match al Lord’s next 
August to mark foe MCCV 
bicentenary, arrived home yes- 
terday after his side’s two- 
month lour of India. 

“It is always easy to have a 
drink after the Australia-Eng- 
land games." be said. “But that 
is a bit hard to do with the 

The friendship bet w een rival 
players was a feature of 
Australia's tour to England last 
year — a far cry from recent 
events in India, where Border’s 
men drew the three-match Test 
series. There were several un- 
pleasant incidents on foe field 
and foe Australians left to 
allegations of bad behaviour off 
it. A Delhi newspaper called 
them a “brat pack . 

“That is absolute rubbish," 
Border -said. “We had onr 
moments on the field bnt off h 
we were extremely well-be- 
haved. Now I'm looking for-

very fit and raring to go.” ;

•=— Brisbane — .Ian Botham took 
46 time out from England’s tour 
yesterday to help a man who has 
given him plenty of problems in 
the past. Botham was guest of 
honour at a gathering here to 
launch a biography of the for- 
mer Australian Test bowler. Jeff 

Thommo Declares is a no- 
punches-pulled account of his 
14-year career, which produced 
many memorable moments on 
and off foe Grid. Botham, given 
permission by Peter Lush, the 
England manager, to appearand 
speak at the launch, said: 
“Thommo is one of the greatest 
cricketers and sportsmen I have 
played against- I have had the 
misfortune of being caught in 
his firing line, but I can't think 
of any one else I'd rather do this

Gash of top two

By William Stephens 

James Male, the British

William Boone, the world cham-

Coach says

Boston (Reuter) — The New 
York Mets. 2-0 behind in the 
best-o&seven World Series, can- 
celled practice in advance of 
their third game a gain** foe 
Boston Red Sox here. 

“The balldub is a little bit 
tired, as I think our performance 
the first two games showed." 
Mets pitching coach, Mel 
Stottlemyre, said. Stortlemyre 
said the Mets, who have been 
out-hit 23-J 2 by the Red Sox in 
foe first two games of the Series, 
needed the rest more than they 
needed to become familiar with 
Boston's Fenway Park, one of 
baseball's oldest and smallest 

The Mets, the National 
League champions, lost foe 
opening two games of the series 
1-0 and 9-3 in their home park at 
Shea Stadium at the weekend. 

Bobby Ojeda, who previously 
played for the Red Sox, will 
pitch for the Mets in the third 
game. The Rex Sox pitcher will 
be Dennis “Oilcan” Boyd. 


Oxford to make 
swift history 

By Keith Macklin 

Oxford, the city whose great- 
est feme and achievements have 
come from scaling the academic 
bmghts, will almost certainly 
witness untight the malting of 
speedway history. 

Under the captaincy of foe 
world individual speedway 
champion, Hans Nielsen. Ox- 
ford will stage a British League 
double-headed fixture against 
Sheffield and Wolverhampton, 
and if they win both they will 
take their consecutive run of 
victories to 28, and become the 
first team to go through a British 
League season with a 100 per. 
cent record. 

This would be a remarkable 
feat because speedway, with 
such wide variations in tracks 
and surfaces throughout the 
country can be one of foe 
hardest sport in the world in 
which to achieve away victories. 

If, as expected, Oxford win 
another League crown, it will 
round off an incredibly success- 

ful season for Nielsen, who is in 
demand for major events 
throughout the world since he 
wrested the world crown from 
his Danish compatriot, Erik 
Gundersen. Vet Nielsen is not 
quite finished. Next month he 
seeks a further success m one of 
those stange hybrid events that 
litter modern sport. 

He will defend his indoor ice 
speedway title at Telford on 
November 30, and among bis 
challengers will be the former 
world ice racing champion Erik 
Steal und of Sweden. Before be 
defends this particular individ- 
ual title, Nielsen will ride for a 
Rest of the World squad against 
an Engl an d team. 

The British season ends next 
week after a year of virtually 
total Danish domination, but 
with Britain looking with hope 
to a revival through such 
promising youngsters as Paul 
Thorp, Gary Havelock and 
Martin DugartL

Maestros of Spain and 
Italy set to grace 
Europe’s finest stage 

From Stuart Jones, Football Correspondent, Madrid 

There could be no more 
appropriate setting for the first 
half of the summit meeting of 
the European season. The 
Bemabeu stadium, the huge 
white edifice in which the 
1982 World Cup final was 
held, will tonight be the stage 
for the reigning kings of Spain 
and Italy. 

Real Madrid, the hosts and 
winners of the UEFA Cup for 
the last two years, will take on 
Juventus in a fixture that is 
billed officially as the first leg 
of the second round of the 
European Cup. Yet the contest 
between the mighty conti- 
nental giants has every right to 
be hailed as the final itself. 

The prospect of the individ- 
ual talent that is about to be 
put on display here is dazzling 
enough to fill every corner of a 
ground that holds f 20.000 
spectators. Inspite of such an 
ex|>ansive capacity, it has been 
estimated that the surround- 
ing streets will be full of 

disappointed customers. And 
no wonder. 

The potential line-up looks 
like a parade of World Cup 
stars and sound like an echo of. 
Mexico. On one side there is 
Butragueno. GaUego. Michel, 
Sanchez and VaWano. on the 
other Cabrini. Laudrup. 
Platini and Scirea. Some. like 
Cabrini. may be missing but 
their understudies are more 
than capable. 

Juventus. for instance, in- 
troduced Buso. aged 17. last 
Sunday, and he scored a 
startling solo goal to mark his 
debut The Italian champions, 
despite being without four of 
their, senior representatives, 
were merely wanning up for 
the great occasion. They 
overwhelmed Ascoli 5-0 to 
maintain their position at the 
top of the table. 

On the same day. Real 
flexed their equally powerful 
muscles here in the warm 
Spanish sunshine with a 5-0 

win over Mallorca and are 
now the joint leaders with 
Barcelona. Brady, the Repub- 
lic of Ireland international 
who. has played against both 
sides recently, believes that 
Real is the stronger of the two. 

Real, with a forward line 
that is described as the most 
exciting in the world, will , 
indeed start marginally as 
favourites. Scirea, the captain 
of Juventus. accepts that “It 
unit be very difficult for us. 
They have such a tradition in 
the Bemabeu and they are 
always likely to seme two or 

But Juventus. guarded by a 
defence that h as conceded 
only one goal so far this 
season, represent a formidable 
barrier. The forthcoming bat- 
tle of the Titans will be both 
delightful and uncompromis- 
ing. It is an evening when the 
irresistible force of Spain will 
meet the immovable object of 

Dynamo combine the charge 
of electrons and Cossacks 

Dynamo Kiev. Celtic's oppo- 
nents in the second round of the 
European Cop tonight, come 
here towards the end of a 
Russian season in which they 
have dominated the game m that 
coantry and. in their guise as the 
Soviet Union national team, sent 
shock-waves round the world 
after a series of performances in 
the Mexico World Cop which 
marked them down as one of the 
most exciting and tactically 
innovative sides since the Dutch 
of the 1970s. 

It is a remarkable story, at the 
centre of which is a remarkable 
manager in Valeri Lobanovski. 
One of the modern game's 
greatest strategists, he has sn ex- 
ceeded in combining in his side 
the traditional Rossian 
strengths of fitness and 
organization with the imagina- 
tion and flair normally asso- 
ciated with the Latin game. 
Indeed, be rites Vincente Feeds, 
the manager of the Brazil side 
which won the Work! Cap in 
1958. as one of his models. 

Lobanbovski thus rather 
shakes ow notion of Rassian 
insularity. His coaching meth- 
ods are rigorous, his dedication 
to the game total, hot his players 
are as expressive as any in the 
world. In a memorable phrase, 
Lobanorski says that what be is 
trying to achieve is “the mar- 
riage or beaaty and 

This is LohanovskFs second 
spell as the Dynamo Kiev man- 
ager and his second in charge of 
the national team. He took over 
at Kiev in 1975, grading them to 
five League titles and three 
Soviet Cops. They also mm the 
Esropean Cup Winners' Cop in 
1975 hot otherwise did not make 
the impact internationally that 
h»s current side has. 

Lobanorski was the obvions 
choice when the managership of 
the national side became vacant 
after the 1982 World Cap bat, as 
has often been the case in 
England, the transition from 
successful dob manager to 
successful national manager was 
not easy. After the Soviet Union 
had failed to qualify for the 1984 
European Championship fin a ls

Lobanovski r e j oined Kiev, des- 
tined, however, to make a dra- 
matic retnrn to the national team 
only three weeks before this 
year's World Cup. 

LobanovskTs newest creden- 
tials were another Leagne title in 

1985 and a breathtaking victory 
in the European Cap Winners* 
Cup final in May when Dynamo 
Kiev swept Atfetico Madrid 
aside, 3-0. The performance 
convinced the Russians that the 
Soviet Union, beaten at home by 
England a few weeks previously 
and straggling to find a pattern

needed Lobanovski if they were 
to stand a chance in Mexico.

What went wrong? Paradoxi-

Lobanovski, in tom. knew he 
needed Dynamo Kiev. Thas it 
was that when the Soviet Umon

ing match the team contained no 
fewer than nine Kiev players. 

That match and the matches 
dial followed set before die 
world all the glories of the 
Kiev/Soviet Union game: spee d, 
strength, faultless technique, 
passing movements that flowed 
with the force of electric car- 
rents, deadly fini s hin g in front of 
goal and a sapreme fitness 
without which the Russians' 
relentless commitment to attack, 
even in the heat of Mexico, conld 
not be fulfilled. This was en- 

tire Russians that the Belgians 
could come back at them and, 
when they did, the defence went 
to pieces. 

The result, however, has not 
shaken Lobanovski's faith in bis 
players nor his masters' faith In 
him. Much the same qualities 
were in evidence in Paris a week 
ico on Satarday when the Soviet 
Union, using eight Kiev players, 
took an important step towards 
qualifying for the 1988 Euro- 
pean Championship finals by 
beating France, the main chal- 
lengers in their group. 2-0. 

Another superb performance 
underlined how hard it fa to 
combat a system which, nom- 
inally, has only one man np 
front the tireless Belanov, yet 
which usually results in five or 
six men getting into the penalty 
area when an attack is well 
advanced. The key fa foe five- 
man midfield. Rats, Yaremchuk, 
Zavarov* Yakovenko and 
Blokhin forming a creative 
power boose in which bewilder- 
ing nmniqg off the haD gives the 
man in possession a seemingly 
limitless number of options. 

Individualism fa not eschewed 
within this formidable frame- 
work of mutual understanding: 
the ability of players such as the 
talk graceful Yakovenko and the 
smaller, more dynamic Zavarov 
to ran at defences from deep and 
beat two or three men is just as 
vital an dement in LobanovskTs 

Celtic's plan of ail-oat attack, 
of fighting fire with fire, may 
just be the answer to the 
problems Kiev will pose. There 
being no greater generator of 
electric atmospheres than Critic 
Park when it is basking in the 
floodlight of Europe, it promises 
to be a highly charged night. 

Anderlecht take heart Romanians at 
from Steaua’s demise nlnh nhollnnnn 

Brussels (Reuter) — And- 
crlccht have an early and ex- 
cellent chance of avenging last 
year's European Cup semi-final 
defeat by Sleaua Bucharest, the 
champions, when they meet the 
weakened Romanian cham- 
pions in tonight's second round, 
first leg tie. 

“It's now or never." Lippens. 
the Anderlecht deputy coach, 
said before the match. “If we 
can't beat them this time, we 
never wilL" Lippcns's optimism 
is based on the fact that three 
Sleaua players — Boloni. 
Bumbcscu and Lacatus — will 
miss the match after being 
suspended by the disciplinary 
committee of UEFA. _ 

Stcaua. the first east Europe- 
ans to win the trophy, will also 
be without Ducadam, the goal- 
keeper hero of the penalty 
shoot-out in last year's find 
against Barcelona. Ducadam 
has had to retire after develop- 
ing blood clots in his arm. 

The match will be the first in 
this year's com pel it ion for 
Sleaua. who currently supply 
the national team with eight 
players, after they were given a 
first round bye. 

lordancscu. the Stcaua coach, 
is aware of the scale of the task 
facing his team. “We will be 
heavily handicapped in the first 
leg." be acknowledges, although 
he is aware that Anderiecht will 
not relish travelling to Romania 
for the second leg. Last year 
Anderlecht won the first leg of 
the semi-final 1-0. but were 
overpowered 34) by the Roma- 
nians. in the return leg. 

Vereauteren. the Anderlecht 
captain, said bis side knows that 
a two-goal lead is the minimum 
required for the second leg in 
Bucharest in two weeks’ time, 
and even the confident Lippens 
has no illusions about the task 
that faces his side. 

“Perhaps Stcaua are playing 
less convincingly at the mo- 
ment. but they remain one of the 
best European teams. Even their 
substitutes ate of international 
calibre," Lippens said. 

lordanescu watched Ander- 
Iccht master lowly Racing Jet 3- 
0 in the league last Sunday and 
has no doubl they will put up a 
tough fight. “It was an easy 
victory for them, and they 
didn’t need to show their true 
colours. We know how good 
they are after meeting them in 

Madrid last summer." he said. 
Stcaua won on penalties after 
the teams had drawn a friendly 
2 - 2 . 

Anderiecht will be at almost 
full strength after Scifo's recov- 
ery from a rib imury sustained 
in Belgium's 6-0 European 
championship trouncing of 
Luxembourg last week. Only 
Demol is doubtful because of an 
ankle injury, but has a 90 per 
cent chance of playing. 

• Austria Vienna's chances of 
becoming the first Austrian dub 
to beat a West German rival in 
14 European encounters have 
plummeted before meeting Bay- 
ern Munich in the European 
Cup tonight. Austria Vienna 
and Bayern shared a 7-5 thriller

Detour: Mansell makes a sandpit stop before completing the circuit in Australia 


Welsh coach is 
kept pondering 

By David Hands, Rugby Carrespoudeut 

David Fox. the Llanelli 
booker, is forced to miss his first 
B international because of an 
ankle injury. He withdrew yes- 
i terday from the Welsb team to 
play France at Pontypridd on 
Saturday after struggling 
: through the B squad training 
session on Monday evening and 
his place goes to Sieve Davies, 
from the South Wales Police. 

It is the second withdrawal 
from the original selection: Ar- 
thur Emyr, the Swansea wing, 
dropped out on Monday having 
failed to recover from a ham- 
string imury acquired while 
playing for the Barbarians at 
Newport earlier this month. His 
place has gone to Graham 
Davies, aged 20. from Neath, 
who was a member of last 
season's national under-20 
squad and went to Italy with the 
B team last May. 

Jason White (Newport) and 
Kevin Phillips (Neath) are 
added to the match replace- 
ments. but the two withdrawals 
have only added to the diffi- 
culties Tony Gray, the Welsh 
coach, has faced preparing his 
side for Saturday. There was no 
opposition pack to train against 
on Monday and Martin 
Gravelle. the Llanelli full back, 
missed the first part of the 

The B international has had a 
telling effect on the Llanelli 
team to play Bristol at the 
Memorial Ground this evening. 
Niue of their players are un- 
available and the club will have 
to fin two positions, left wing 
and loose-head prop, with new- 
comers on permit from local 
junior dubs. They da however, 
retain some experienced heads 
in the pack, among them David 
Pickering, last season's captain 
of Wales, and Phil Davies, his 
international colleague. Pick- 
ering will lead the side in the 
absence of Phil May. the dub 

Llanelli were beaten by 
London Welsh last weekend, 
after leading J9-3ai half-time. It 
was their second unhappy visit 
to London this season — last 
month they were beaten at 
Twickenham when Harlequins 

kicked six penalties to win t8-l S 
— and Norman Gale, chairman 
of selectors, has expressed some 
reservations about the standard 
of refereeing his club has en- 
countered this season. 

He is not pointing the finger 
at any particular nationality and 
admitted there was no excuse 
fora side of Llanelli's experience 
losing a commanding lead at 
Old Deer Park last Saturday, but 
be does stress that, at a time 
when players are malting even 
more efforts to keep up with the 
representative demands placed 
upon them, there should be a 
consistency of quality among ■ 
match officials. • 

Bristol, who staged a brave 
rally against Bath last weekend, 
have dropped their two props 
from that match.- Peter Stiff and 
Peter Smith. This reflects the 
dominance Bath obtained 
though Llanelli, with a debutant 
in their front row. may not pose 
the same problem. Crayton 
Phillips and Darryl Hickey, who 
has completed a month’s 
suspension after bring sent off i 
during Bristol's summer tour to 
Canada, play instead and Doug 
Woodman comes in on the I 
wing. ! 

OrrelL who play the Lan- 
cashire Consta bufary. today will 
be without John Carieton, the 
England squad centre, for their 
game at Sheffield on Saturday. 
He is taking part in a charity 
match in Brussels and is re- 
placed by Da vid Fell; there is no 
place in either match squad for 
Peter Williams, who returned 
from Australia last week and 
may not appear in OrreU's 
colours before England's world 
cup training camp in Portugal at 
the end of the month. 

Mark Rose, the Wasps No. 8 
who was concussed in the game 
against Cardiff last Saturday, 
will be replaced for the borne 
game with Pontypridd this 
weekend by John Ellison, the 
Yorkshire player. The di- 
visional selectors may also have 
their eye upon Sean O'Leary 
who comes in at lock and Kevin 
Simms, the England centre who 
tests out a tweaked hamstring in 
the second team.

Runners face 
testing for 
use of drugs 

New York (Reuter)— The top 
mate and female finishers in this 
year’s New York roaraibon will 
be tested for drug use, tbe first 
non-Olympic use of such testing 
in a United States road race, an 
organizer said in New York 

“The reason fa very simple — 
we're giving big money to the 
winners." Dr Andres Rodriguez, 
medical director for the mara- 
thon. said. 

The organizers expect 20.000 
runners to participate in the 
event oa November 2- Top 
prizes are expected to be as high 
as S25.000 (about £ 1 7,500). 

In addition to tbe male and 
female winners, an unspecified 
number of other runners, cho- 
sen at random from tbe top 25 
finishers, will be tested. Dr 
Rodriguez said. ; 

“We don’t know exactly the 
number we’ll test yet.“ be said. 
“You don’t want to fell the i 
people what number you will 
check. The top three are ob- i 
vious. The rest will be chosen at 
random. We can't test 25. It's 
just very, very expensive and 
not practicaL” 

The runners will have to 
submit a urine sample immedi- 
ately after completion of the 
race. Officials will be testing for 
five general types of drags.: 
including stimulants . and 
narcotics. Fred Lebow, director 
of the marathon, said the na-

was behind tbe decision to tesL 


for Davies 

From John Henuessy 
La Manga, Spain 

Laura Davies, the British 
Open champion, kepi alive the 
possibility of again finishing top 
of the heap in women's pro- 
fessional golf here yesterday. 
She had a first round of 72. two 
under par, in the La Manga Club 
Spanish Open and so stole a lead 
of seven strokes over Lotto 
Neumann, of Sweden, who 
holds first place at the moment 
in the order of merit. 

In order to overhaul Miss 
Neumann. Miss Davies must 
win this the last tournament of 
the season and. further, depend 1 
on Miss Neumann finishing 
lower than seventh. Yesterday’s 
golf suggests that both con- 
ditions could be meL 
True. Miss Davies lies three 
shots behind tbe unexpected 
leader. Suzanne Strodwicfc. a 
former Staffordshire County 
player, but that is a slim margin 
between a proven winner ana a 
player who has. yet to break 
through to the top. 

Miss Neumann, ordinarily a 
player of cool precision, may 
have been unhinged yesterday 
by the daunting presence of 
Miss Davies, for providence 
rather than design (we muss 
assume) had drawn them 

At any rate the Swede, after 
securing two birdies in the first 4 
holes, seemed to lose all inspira- 
tion. She was out in 39. 2 over 
par. and suffered damaging axes 
at 2 holes coming home. 

Nor was Miss Davies at her 
best and she readily confessed 
afterwards that she had “got 
away with it". A hook into 
kingdom come at the 545 yards 
9th cost her a seven, but. equally 
spectacularly, she hit the I8ih 
green in two fora birdie; with a 
daring S-iron out of rough to 
carry the ravine and bunker 
guarding the green.

Hb driving, as it toned out. 
was vary good. It was hfa putting 
which Jet hi* down. To conclude 
that it is odd Oat he should 
begin the most important week 
of his life fretting about a sport 
which is not his own is to join the 
many who seriously mfauuter- 
stana Nigel Manseu. 

He had, n any event already 
given the Australian Grand 
Prix, In which he must finish in 
tbe top three to be certain of the 
title, his Foil attention. He had 
gone over the track, and his 
preparations to conquer it, 
somewhere above Yugoslavia. 
He did so again feteg down the 
Gntf-of Arabia. Then twice or 
three times mo re while 35,000 
feet above the Indian Ocean and 
the Straits of Penang. 

There are only so many times 
even a perfectionist like Mansell 
can go through the gears for an 
imaginary comer without also 
going round the bend, so be 
made himself instead think 
about hfa- golf. 

Travelling the 15,000 miles 
and 28 ho rns within feet of a 
man who is going to be very rich 
or. atCerfy disappointed within 
the next five days was Ohnninat- 
ing. Granted that it takes daring 
ski!) and determination to be a 
grand prix driver, other sorts of 
strength on which Mansell cut. 
call storied to become apparent. 

One learnt, for example, that 
playing golf within two hoots of 
a flight tint occupied two nights 
was a deliberately chosen act of 
self-examination. Mansell 
partnered Greg .Norman, the 
best golfer In the world, in tbe 
Adelaide pro-am tournament. It 
was a test of his own consid- 
erable amateur game and so it 
was im portant. As n test of hfs 
nerve, his concentration, his 
competitive edge, it was ritaL 

Mansell explained all this 
with a quiet conviction as we 
flew down towards Australia: 
‘There is no point in thinking 
any more about the race. I have 
gone over every detail, tbe 
setting np of die car, the tyres, 
the gear'changiHg for every 
corner, and a gain- Each 

time 1 shot my eyes in the 
darkness to steep, it fa like 
someone has opened the fridge

“It fa not n e r vousn e s s. 1 am 
not nervous about this week. Just 
very, very determined. 1 know 
exactly what I intend to do with 
every boar between now and 
Sunday. But there fa a limit to 
what I can accomplish np here. 
So I have turned my mind to 

“Tbe game fa important to me. 

I love it. And I also take ft very, 
very seriously. 

“I have not the- slightest 
intention of going out playing 
alongside the best in the world 
and slashing arond for a total 
of 85 amid lots Ofgiggtes. 1 am 
too competitive for that. The 
game is important in itself bat 
for me it's an alMmportont

lurid ft will su rv i v e in the sport; 
an error 50 uncharacteristic ft 
was as though Steve Davis had 
taken aim at the chalk with his

stranded on the grid at the start 

.of the race was, Mansell said, a 

freak. “Bat that doesn't mean it 
wouldn't happen again had I not 
allocated space in my m e nta l 
computer to eliminate it, he 
explained. “Like anything else 
that has ever gone wrong, it will 
be checked, doable-checked, 
over-checked. But, of course, 
something unexpected can al- 
ways come up in motor racing to 
bite yonr backside. 

“So- that’s another beauty of 
golf, oat there it's yon, only yon 
and no one or nothing to Wame. 

Norman and Mansell seemed 
to have a lot in common around 
the Kooyonga coarse yesterday. 
They bad the decency to be nice 
to the petrified Ford dealer who 
marie np their playing group nnd 
who iu bis nervousness hit shots

and the gum trees.

now even more broadly, he

to take 
the field 

Istanbul (AP) — Despite tbe 
intrusion of politics, the Turk- 
ish football team. Besiktas, 
intend to be on the field today 
for a scheduled European 
Champions' Cnp match al- 
though the rival Cypriot team 
is not expected to show np. 

The game fell victim of the 
intense political passions of 
Cyprus. Turkey invaded and 
occupied the northern half of 
the east Mediterranean island 
in 1974 and the island remains 
divided and the war un- 
resolved. Three West German 
referees and a Danish ob- 
server from the European 
soccer association, (UEFA), 
arrived late yesterday to 1 m 
present at the official cere- 
mony before the scheduled 
kick-off at 14*30 (1230 

GMT). UEFA said the game 
most be piayed as drawn. 

The Turkish government 
has stayed out of the dispute 
and left the decision to tbe 
club, except to promise se- 
curity for the Cypriot team and 
its 100 fans. But tbe Cypriot 
government announced that it 
would not host the second leg 
game in Nicosia on November 
5, saying it was “unable to 
accept guarantees for tbe 
safety of players and support- 
ers coming from a Turkish 
government which has been 
violating human rights against 
the citizens of Cyprus through 
occupying a luge part of 
Cyprus". ^ 

The Nicosia government ac- 
cused Turkey of plotting to stir 
trouble during the game as a 
pretext for launching a mili- 
tary strike against Greek- 
Cypriots. A Turkish foreign 
ministry official dismissed the 
charges' as “absurdities". Tbe 
Union of European Football 
Associations on warned Apod 
Nicosia that it may incur 
sanctions if it refuses to play

Joao Havelange. the presi- 
dent of FIFA, said here yes- 
terday that discussions are 
already in hand with Italy, the 
hosts for the 1990 World Cup, 
on measures to deal with 
supporters from England. 
This presupposes, of course, 
that England will survive the 
qualifying competition, the 
draw for which will be made in 

“The basic provision for 
handling English spectators 
has been established with the 
Italian organizing commit- 
tee." Havelange said, although 
at this stage he was reluctant 
to go into detail. There must 
inevitably be concern, despite
