Kinnock aims 


for mortgage

nailed changes in the 
ot mortgage tax reli 
would involve big cuts in 
support for home-owners who 
were. dee m «j not to need the 
subsidy. 

Although he was cautious 
on detail, Mr Kinnock spoke 
oi the need for a revision of 
me system to help those 
iaimhes most in need. 

a speech which will 
ensure that mortgage interest 
rate relief becomes a major 
issue at the next election, he 
suggested that relief should be 
bed to income, age and 
whether people bad children 
or dependent relatives. 

The dear implication was 
that middle-class home-own- 
ers, particularly those without 
families, would be the hardest 
hiL Mr Kinnock made no 
mention of means-testing to 
see whether individuals would 
qualify for relief but Conser- 
vative MPs who attacked his 
speech last night said that it 
would be difficult to achieve a 
system of variable relief in any 
other way. 

Mr Kmnock's remarks, to 
the National Housing 
Town Planning Council con- 
ference in Bournemouth, 
came as mortgage relief 
emerged as a controversial ■ 


Ir Michael Hesdtme, the 
former Cabinet minister, 
called for the restriction of 
mortgage relief to first-time 
buyers, and said more than 
£23 billion could be saved by 
ending it for those buying for a 
second or third time. 

The idea was immediately 
attacked by Mr Robot 
McCrindle, a senior Conser- 
vative backbencher, who said 
that at a time when the

Government was rightly 
claiming success in advancing 
home ownership it would be 
folly to change direction. 

“While we would all like to 
see the. regeneration of the 
inner cities, attacking the tax 
privileges of suburbia is not 
the way to go about it,” he 
said 

Mr Kmnock's speech will; 
have far-reaching political im- 
plications. Labour is already 
committed to restricting mort- 
gage relief to the standard rale 
of tax, but he made dear that 
under a Labour government 
for more significant changes 
would be considered 

He said the relief system 
started as a modest and sen- 
sible inducement to house 
purchase, but had now moved 
out of balance and had lost its 
relationship both with the 


■ne«Js of the great majority. 

In 1979 tax relief amounted 
to £13 bilhon and by last 1 
it had increased to £4.7!' 

Hon, while local authority 
subsidy had dwindled to less 
than £500 million. Within the 
subsidy there had been a shift 
away from the house-bm 
majority towards the wefl- 

He said; “When those 
changes take place and do 
nothing to help those who 
have paid their mortgages or , 
never taken mortgages; do 
tittle to facilitate 
purchase or ease the burdens 
of average mortgages on av- 
erage incomes and do much to 
push up house prices, there is 
obviously a need to address 
the matter to take account of i 
modem conditions.” 

Mr Kinnock rejected the 
“wiping out” of reliefs but 
added: “What is needed is a 
revision that gives relief to the 
people and families who need 
help at a time of their lives, 
and at levels of family 
responsibility and of income, 
when they need it. 

“We need somehow to

The Prime Minister intends 
to stay In office for at feast two 
yearn if the Conservatives win 
the next general election. 

Mrs Thatcher is Letting it be 
known that she will cany on 
as leader and ensure her stamp 
is firmly set on die third 
consecutive Conservative 
government. 

According to the most 
authoritative sources, Mrs 
Thatcher is not yet talking of 
standing for a fourth election, 
although that dearly cannot 
be ruled out 

The conventional wisdom 
at Westminster since the '1983 
election has been that Mrs 
Thatcher would go for a hat- 
trick of election victories and 
then retire soon afterwards to 
allow a successor to steer the 
Tories through their next term 
in government. That expecta- 
tion had grown because, until 
now, Mrs Thatcher had never 
sought to discourage it 

The disclosure of the Prime 
Minister’s intention to “play it 
long” is a deliberate attempt 
by her to kill the inevitably 
growing speculation over who 
will be her eventual successor. 

In an interview last week 
with the Daily Express, she 


isters vying for the succession, 
wind) die believes is not 
conducive to good govem- 
menL By making it plain that 
she intends to stay on for the 
foreseeable future, she dearly 
hopes to discourage both the 
regular questioning by inter- 
viewers of her Cabinet mem- 
bers about their leadership 
intentions, and their readiness 
to indulge in such speculation. 

There is also a strong tac- 
tical reason for emphasizing 
the Prime Minister’s 


determination to cany on. If 
the suggestion that she was to 
go shortly after an election 


two years off the next Par- 
liament, saying: “There is a lot 
to be done” 

But there is evidently a 
feeling in Downing Street that 
that message has not yet got 
home to her MPs and 
ministers. 

Mrs Thatcher wants to 
avoid the spectacle of min- 


were to gain force it would 
give ammunition to the 
opposition parties, who would 
be able to describe ho* as a 
“lame duck” prime minister. 

But the principal reason 
behind Mrs Thatcher’s de- 
cision to let h be known that 
she is staying on wdl into the 
next Parliament is that she 
simply is not ready to go and 
wants to take into the 1990s 
her mission and her vision of a 
Britain based on popular 
capitalism. 

The Prime Minister’s hus- 
band, Mr Denis Thatcher, is 
said to be relaxed about her 
decision to cany on well into a 
third term. It is pointed out by 
close associates that ■ Mis 
Thatcher's new property in 
Dulwich, south London, was 
not bought primarily with 
retirement in mind, but be- 
cause they been unsettled 
without their own property 


after the sale of their former 
home in Flood Street, Chelsea.

The Excha 


By Lawrence Lever 

New trading systems at the 
Stock Exchange set up for Big

computer failure yesterday. 

The breakdown prevented 
market-makers from advertis-

forced them to revert to pre- 
Big Bang methods of dealing. 

Moreover, some of Mon- 
day's teething problems re- 
mained to the annoyance of 
brokers arid maricet-makers. 

The timing of the failure — 
at 1pm for half an hour — 
meant that trading was not

Minister enters Ruskin College lecturer row 


By Mark Dowd 
Education Reporter 


In the first public govern- 
ment announcement on the 
affair of Mr David Sdbourne, 
the former Ruskin College 
lecturer. Mr George Waldeo, 
Under-Secretary of State for 
Education, told the Commons 
yesterday that has invited the 
college principal, Mr John 
Hughes,, to meet him on 
Monday to discuss the case- 
Mr Walden said that he was 
not reassured by Mr Hughes’s 
reply to a letter requesting an 
explanation of events. 


Mr Selboume wrote an 
article for The Times in 
March. After student boycotts 
and censure by Ruskhft 
governing body, be sought a 
commitment to academic 
freedom from Mr Hughes, 
which was refused. He is now 
pursuing legal action. 

In a separate development, 
the Association of University 
Teachers is to be urged this 
week to assist Mr Selboutne. 

In addition to discussing a 
detailed report on the dispute 
compiled by association offi- 
cers during the past two 


weeks, the national executive 
committee will consider 
resolutions passed on Monday 
by. the • Birmingham 
association. 

The first calls for a state- 
ment of the union’s position 


Parliament 


on academic freedom in light 
of the Selboume* case, in 
particular the role played by 
Mr John Akker. its deputy 
general secretary, who was at 
foe meeting on June 27 when 
Ruskin passed its motion of 
censure. 


The second calls on the 
national executive, providing 
Mr Selboume withdraws his 
resignation, to “authorize an 
offer of assistance in pursuit of 
his claim that the college 
authorities are unwilling to 
guarantee his academic 
freedom.*' 

It is understood that Mr 
Selboume is willing to comply 
with that prerequisite. 

The sponsor of the resolu- 
tions, Mr Geoffrey 
Osiergaard, a senior lecturer 
in political science at Bir- 
mingham University, said 


yesterday that they were de- 
signed to put pressure on the 
national executive to come 
dean and take a stand. 


Evidence of further rank 
and file dissatisfaction with 
the low-key approach taken by 
the association nationally is 
reflected by additional mo- 
tions on the Selboume affair 
expected to be discussed today 
by members in Cardiff. 


The case appears likely to 
become a central issue at the 
meeting of the association’s 
national council in December.

Mrs Thatcher and Sir Geof- 
frey Howe, the Foreign Sec- 
retary, are planning a 
diplomatic offensive over the 
next ten days , following the 
lukewarm response to British 
requests at this week's meeting 
of Common Market foreign 
ministers in Luxembourg for 
concerted action. 

British Ministers are seeth- 
ing at Europe’s failure to 
match its fine words with 
actions after Sir Geoffrey had 
presented his colleagues with a 
mil dossier on Syria’s involve- 
ment in the Hindawi affair. 
Syrian radio has already been 
crowing at what it calls 
Britain's defeat in the bid to 
get tough European action. 

Foreign ministers of the 
twelve EEC countries are due 
to meet in London on Novem-

to persuade them to ban arms

He told MPs dm his Euro-

White poppy proposal 
makes Legion see red 


. Sir - Allan Davis, Lord 
Mayor of London, yesterday 
launched the annual Poppy 
Appeal amid a dispute over 
proposals by the peace move- 
ment to distribute white pop- 
pies instead of the Royal 
British Legion’s red ones for 
Remembrance Sunday next 
month. 

As the appeal was launched 
at the Honourable Artillery 
Company in London, the 
Prime Minister condemned 
the London-based Peace 
Pledge Union's plans to swap 
the traditional red flowers. 

She spoke of her “deep 
distaste” at die proposal, say- 
ing: “The Cenotaph is a 
national occasion and brings 
help and comfort to all 

Her comments followed a 
plea fin* tolerance from the 
Right Rev John Baker, Bishop 
of Salisbury, who said there 


was “plenty of -space for red

But this suggestion was 
dismissed by Major Bob 
Tomlins, general secretary of 
the Royal British Legion, who 
said: “White poppies are en- 
tirely superfluous and linked 
to things we don't consider 
have any place in the matter of 
remembrance.” 

Last night the Bishop said 
he was “deeply distressed” 
that his comments had been 
taken as detracting from the 
“unique place the scarlet 
poppy of Flanders had in all 
our hearts.” 

Mr Ted Jobson, chairman 
of the Poppy Appeal, said: 
“Remembrance should be a 
very positive emotion — pos- 
itive in that the best way to 
remember and honour Eire 
dead is to care for the living.

Anger as French learn Nimrod secrets 


By Harvey Elliott 
Air Correspondent 

Two senior French military 
officials, working from an 
office in the Ministry of 
Defence in Whitehall, are 
being handed all the technical 
secrets of Britain's Nimrod 
early warning aircraft. 

GEC manufacturer of the 
Nimrod's sophisticated radar 
system, fears that the highly 
sensitive information could be 
passed on to Boeing and 
enable the American rival to 
sabotage Nimrod's future. 

Executives of GEC Avion- 
ics, fighting to clinch a £1 bil- 
lion deal for an airborne early 
warning system for the RAF, 
are having to spend hundreds 


of man hours translating tech- 
nical documents into French 
and have been ordered to base 
the one operational test air- 
craft in France for a week to 
cany out evaluation Sights for 
French officials and scientists. 

But the executives are con- 
vinced that France has no 
intention of buying the Nim- 
rod or the GEC radar system. 
The French air force has made 
it plain that it wants the 
Boeing Awacs as its “spy in 
the sky" over the Mediterra- 
nean. 

The French government is, 
however, worried about the 
cost of the Boeing and has 
asked to work with Britain in 
evaluating Nimrod.

Prince calls 
on builders 
to develop 
derelict sites 

By Christopher Wannan, Property Correspondent 


The Prince of Wales yes- 
terday berated Britain's house 
builders for concentrating on 
building on greenfield sites 
rather than developing dere- 
lict sites in inner cities. 

He called on the housing' 
industry to lake action in 
partnership with unemployed 
and under-employed commu- 
nities to contribute to the 
revival of run-down areas. 

At the same time he praised 
self-build projects — which 
form one of the top three 
building organizations in the 
country — as an imaginative 
way of providing cheaper 
housing. 

The Prince was speaking to 
an audience of 500 builders, 
developers, architects and 
planners at a conference is 
London, organized by the 
National House Building 
Council to celebrate its fiftieth 
anniversary. 

Criticizing under-invest- 
ment in run-down urban ar- 
eas, the Prince said that in 
spite of the obvious need to 
tackle this problem, “It always 
seems crazy to me that the 
building industry spends a 
great deal of energy in trying 
to secure greenfield sites 
which, from an overall na- 
tional economic point of view, 
are for more costly to develop 
than a derelict site, although 
on the face of things they may 
appear to be cheaper. 

“It is extremely wonying, I 
think, that the second land 
utilization survey has shown 
that farm land is being lost at a 
rate which would see its total 
disappearance in 200 years." 

The Prince asked what the 
point was of using up a 
valuable resource in pursuit of 
what was not even a real cost 
saving. 

“Concentrating efforts on 
greener pastures and leaving 
the inner city to fester results 
in an ever-increasing spiral of 
decay, failing infrastructure, 
under-developed social and 
public facilities, poorer hous- 
ing. schools and hospitals and 
other social manifestations, 
such as poor physical and 
mental health and a general 
low morale." 

The hopelessness felt by the 
communities concerned was 
compounded by decay and 


Limb firm 
gets strike 
warning 

By AngeQa Johnson 

Britain's largest artificial- 
limb manufacturer could lose 
its DHSS contract unless it 
settles a six-week dispute at its 
Roehampton factory. Mr 
David Mellor, a Home Office 
minister, said yesterday. 

Supplies from J E Hanger's 
south-west London factory 
have been almost halved since 
300 of its 800 workforce went 
on strike over new work 
schedules. 

At least 58 people waiting to 
have artificial legs fitted at the 
centre near Queen Mary’s 
Hospital have had appoint- 
ments postponed because 
limbs were not available. 

Mr Mellor said the situation 
bad become almost intol- 
erable and was causing ex- 
treme hardship for people. 

“If the dispute continues for 
much longer it is not in- 
conceivable that the company 
could lose its contract al- 
together. There are several 
French and German manufac- 
turers waiting in the wings if J 
E Hanger cannot meet 
demands.” 


ever-present van dalis m. The 
housing industry seemed a 
little unwilling to invest most 
of its effort in these under- 
resourced areas. 

Prince Charles said that in 
spite of the short-sighted eco- 
nomic argument that there 
was little point in pouring 
money into these areas be- 
cause there was no effective 
demand, the building industry 
had an opportunity to take a 
lead in generating real growth. 

He said: “1 see the potential 
whenever I go to throe areas. 
And it drives me mad that 
others seem blind to the 
immense possibilities that are 
there." 

The Prince also asked archi- 
tects and builders to design 
homes for convenience, start- 
ing with a downstairs lava- 
tory. Wider doors and ramps 
up to the door would, in 
addition, help the disabled. 

The plea from the Prince of 
Wales for the use of inner city 
land was reinforced by Mr 
John Patten. Minister for 
Housing, Urban Affairs and 
Construction. “We are trying 
to do all we can to ensure that 
bousing is built on land that 
has been used before." 

He said that last year 45 per 
cent of all bouses were built on 
recycled land and he was 
convinced that government 
efforts to develop this policy 
further would help to push 
more development back into 
the North and the Midlands 
where it was needed, and help 
with the North-South divide. 

Mr Michael Heseltroe, a 
former Secretary of State for 
the Environment, called for 
the phasing out of mortgage 
lax relief to all but first-time 
buyers and the return of the 
bulldozer to inner city areas to 
allow renewal of housing. 

Mr Heseltine said it was not 
possible to patch and mend 
old and inadequate housing 
forever. “We will have to clear 
much of the building dating 
from the last century. But in 
doing that we must replace it 
not with the soulless council 
estates of the 1950s and 1960s 
but witb balanced 
neighbourhoods where people 
will live and invest from i 
choice." 


Prisoners 
in talks to 
end siege 

Negotiations were continu- 
ing last night to end the siege 
at Sughton Prison in Edin- 
burgh in which five inmates 
armed frith home-made knives 
and dobs took a prison officer 
hostage. 

The men were thought to be 
long-term prisoners. Two erf 
them were due to be returned 
to Peterhead Prison yesterday. 
They had been at Saugbton to 
make visits by relatives easier. 

The Scottish Office said tte 
prison officer, aged 25, who is 
married bat has not been 
named, may be in danger but 
there was do indicatioB that be 
bad been harmed. 

The siege at Saugbton, a 
medium security jail built for 
550 inmates but bousing 785, 
was in protest at visiting rights 
and conditions. 

The Scottish Office said: “A 
dialogue will continue until 
there is a satisfactory conclu- 
sion. The prisoners have a 
transisier radio and wanted 
access to a telephone, al- 
though they weren't given 


rod aircraft available for 
them — the 1 1 now built are 
all earmarked for the RAF. So 
even if the French do choose 
the British system they would 
have to fit it into another 
aircraft, such as the Lockheed 
030. 

But t he Fre nch government 
has ordered its two repre- 
sentatives, M J J*. Frolich and 
M S. Chapron. to complete a 
final detailed report by 
November 15. 

Last night M Chapron re- 
fused to disclose his rank 
within the French air force. 
“We are military, but it is 
rather special and hard to 


explain,” be said. 

The frustration at what 
GEC sees as a cynical French 




attempt to get its secrets and 
then use them to force down 
the price of the Boeing Awacs, 
showed yesterday when Mr 
James Prior, GEC chairman, 
said: “The French want to 
make a final decision in 
November. But this is too 
short a time for them to make 
a proper evaluation. 

“We are providing them 
with all the information that 
Britain has. We had no prac- 
tical alternative but to do so.” 

The main priority remains 
the forthcoming RAF order. 
GEC is convinced that it has 
solved the technical problems 
which have led to massive 
delays in the introduction of 
the Nimrod. But now it must 
tackle the for harder job of

convincing the RAF and the 
Government to buy the Brit- 
ish system rather than order 
from Boeing. 

“We are now entering the 
political arena." Mr Prior 
said. . 

“Political battles are always 
for harder than technical bat- 
tles. The RAF is still biased 
against Nimrod because they 
always wanted Awacs. And 
there are a number of people 
in Government who don't like 
GEC and consider we have 
dime too wefl out of the 
Ministry of Defence budget 
over the last 25 years." 

Final bids should be 
submitted to the ministry on 
November 6.

ing Home Office confirmation 
of an extradition order granted 

against Mr Ian Wood, the

Knowsley North by-election 

Militants 9 sabotage threat 

By Richard Evans, Political Correspondent 


The Militant Tendency last 
night deliberately attempted 
to sabotage Labour's Knows- 
ley North by-election cam- 
paign by warning that it will 
try to remove the party’s 
moderate candidate after his 
expected victory in the safe 
seat 

Mr Richard Venton, Mil- 
itant's chief Merseyside spo- 
kesman, said that Mr George 
How-arth, imposed as can- 
didate by Labour’s leadership 
against the wishes of the local 
party, would be a “caretaker” 
MP for Labour. 

He said that Militant, which 
has labelled Mr Howarth a 
right-winger, would “cam- 
paign for a socialist 
candidate" to replace him 
after the by-election. 

“We regard George How- 
arth as an uninvited, imposed 
candidate against the wishes 
of the Labour Party but never- 
theless we will campaign for a 
Labour victory. 

“We will seek to build 
Knowsley North Labour Party 
into an even bigger working 
class and socialist party witb a 
view to defending the right to 
re-selection. 

“If the party membership 
then wishes to de-select Mr 
Howarth that will be their 
choice." 

The statement by Mr 
Venton, one of nine Mer- 
seyside Militants expelled 
from the Labour Party, came 
only hours after Mr Howarth 


had attempted to prevent tte 
Militant issue from dominat- 
ing his campaign by directly 
challenging tte Trotskyist 
organization to put up their 
own candidate against him for 
tte seat 

His surprise gambit back- 
fired after Militant's interven- 
tion and could prove 
disastrous to his chances. The 
Alliance and Conservative 
candidates will seize on Mr 
Venton's remarks and claim 
that tte local party is in 
Militant’s grips. 

Ironically Miss Rosemary 
Cooper, the liberal candidate, 
opened her campaign this 
week by saying Mr Howarth 
was a “caretaker candidate 
who would be removed swiftly 
by Militant if he won tte 
seat”. 

Last night she said “The 
Labour Party would have to 
find a cupboard to hide Mr 
Howarth in after the election 
because there is now no 
possibility of tte local party 
working with him. The very 
people he does not want 
control h is future 

The setback for Labour will 
increase pressure on Mr Neil 
Kinnock and tte party’s na- 
tional executive committee to 
disband the Knowsley North 
constituency party immedi- 
ately after tte by-election. In 
the early days of the campaign 
it has been noticeable how 
national and regional party 
officers are organizing Lab- 


Shot-down aircraft denials 

By Michael Evans, Whitehall Correspondent 


Allegations that two RAF B- 
24 Liberators flying over Viet- 
nam in 1945 were shot down 
by US fighters were dismissed 
yesterday by former British 
commanders of special units. 

It had been claimed that the 
two aircraft from 358 Squad- 
ron with 24 crew were shot 
down by planes from the I4th 
USAAF while dropping sup- 
plies to British clandestine 
forces in north Vietnam and 
that the incident was hushed 
up by Lord Mountbatten of 
Burma, Supreme Allied Com- 
mander South-east Asia, be- 
cause of bitter rivalries 
between the British and US 
special forces in Vietnam. 

However. Mr Terence 
O'Brien, a squadron leader 


with 357 Squadron, operating 
in the same area, said: “I saw 
the accident report on one of 
the crashed Liberators and 
there was no mention of any 
bullet holes. ” 

Mr O'Brien said that on the 
night the aircraft disappeared, 
January 22, the weather was 
appalling with very low cloud. 
“Eleven aircraft set off for 
dropping zones in northern 
Vietnam but only two suc- 
ceeded in completing their 
drops because of the weather. 
Three crashed and six re- 
turned with their loads still on 
board." 

Mr O'Brien was supported 
by Colonel Colin Mackenzie, 
who was head of Force 136, 
the Far Eastern section of the 


Special Operations Executive 
(SOE). 

Colonel Mackenzie, speak- 
tog from his home in Kyieakin 
on the Isle of Skye, sakk“ I 
cannot support the allegation 
that there was a cover-up 
involving Lord Mountbatten. 
1 think I would have known 
about it, but 1 was never told 
of any incident of British 
planes being shot down by the 
Americans." 

However, a file in the Public 
Record Office in Kew, written 
by Air Vice-Marshal J 
Whitworth Jones, head of the 
special duties section of the 
South-east Asian Command, 
does put forward the possibil- 
ity that the two aircraft were 
shot down.

The local party, which went 
to the High Court in an 
unsuccessful bid to challenge 
Mr Howartt’s imposition asa 
candidate, are now under 
orders from Mr Larry Whitty, 
Labour’s general-secretary, to 
endorse him this weekend. 

Mr Howarth' s challenge to 
Militant to “put up or shut 
up" came after the circulation 
of a leaflet puMirizmg a 
Militant meeting tomorrow 
where Tendency supporters 
will be urged to vote for the 
Labour candidate. 

Speakers at the meeting 
include Mr Venton and Mr 
Tony Mulhearn, who was 
lucked by Militant to replace 
Mr Robert Kilroy-Sfik. the 
constituency's former Labour 
MP. 

Mr Howarth said: “I have 
never asked far support from 
the Militant organization. I 
don’t want their support 

“In feet, far from welcom- 
ing any Militant support, I 
wish that they would run a 
candidate of their own in this 
by-election, and allow the

Tests for 
jobless on 
efforts to 
find work 

By Phflip Webster 
and Sheila Gum ’ , 
Tighter tests to ensure that 
applicants for unemployment 
benefits are genuinely seeking 
work are to be introduced by 
the Government. 

New claimants will have to 
answer detailed ques- 
tionnaires in which they win 
have to describe what work 
they are seeking and how they 
are making themselves avail- 
able for work. 

The move comes after the 
success of pilot schemes in 12 
areas since last spring, which 
showed that many more jjeo- 

ple did not pursue their claims 

when presented with the ques- 
tionnaire than in areas where 
the test was not operating. 

Claimants will be given a 
form on which they wiD be 
asked to state; among other 
t hing s , what they are doing to 
find work, the job they nor- 
mally do, the job they are 
looking for, whether they are 
willing to consider other jobs, 
how far they are able to travel 
to work, and what weekly 
minimum wage they are will- 
ingto take. 

The Labour Party mounted 
a sharp attack on the new plan 
in both the Commons and the 
Lords yesterday, accusing the 
Government of another at- 
tempt to manipulate the un- 
employment figures, and of 
trying to reduce tte figures by 
in timidati on and trick ques- 
tions. 

Mr John Prescott, Labour's 
chief employment spokes- 
man, accused the Govern- 
ment of being vindictive and 
more concerned to blame and 
harass the unemployed than 
to provide jobs for them. 

Lord Young of Graflham, 
Secretory of State for Employ- 
ment, defended the test 
a gainst the accusation that it 
would afflict “torture” on 
many illiterate people out of 
work. “True unemployment 
wiD not be affected one whit 
by tins form. Anyone genu- 
inely unemployed win not be 
deterred by it," he said. The 
questions were not designed to 
trick claimants. 

In tte Commons, his dep- 
uty, Mr Kenneth Clarke, the 
Paymaster-General, said that 
according to surveys, 300,000 
people receiving benefits 
admitted they would not tike 
work when asked. 

The aim of the exercise was 
to ensure that the Govern- 
ment dischaiged its duty to 
account properly for public 
money, and paid benefit to 
those who were entitled to it 
but not to those who did not

Hailsham 
blocks 
Irish move 

By Nicholas Wood 

Political Reporter 

Lord Hailsham of St 
Marylebone, the Lord Chan- 
cellor, is blocking a move by . 
Dublin to replace the one- 
judge Diplock courts with . 
three-man tribunals, it was 
disclosed yesterday. 

The proposal, to be tabled at 
the meeting of the Anglo-Irish 
conference next month, is 
regarded fevourabfy by tte 
Northern Ireland ministers, < 
Mr Tom King, Secretary of 
State and Mr Nicholas Scott, 
his deputy. 

They see merit in the Irish 
case that broadening the com- 
position' of the courts, which 
hear terrorist trials in Ulster 
without a jury, would help to 
strengthen their reputation 
abroad and defuse the charge 
that they are unfair and 
discriminate against the Ro- 
man Catholi c minority. 

Dr Garret FitzGerald, the 
Irish prime minister, who 
gained the right to make 
represen tations to London 
about the administration of 
the province under the Anglo- 
Irish agreement signed last 
year, is presang fin re- 
constituting the courts. 

But Lord Haflsham believes 
the proposal amounts to inter- 
ference in British sovereignty ' 
and is resisting it strongly. Tte 
Prime Minister is said to be in : 
no mood to overrule him. 

. He is also concerned about 
the practical difficulties of 
finding sufficient numbers of 
suitably qualified people to 
take up the new posts. 

Barristers moving into such 
positions would fee a sub- 
stantial drop in income and - 
could also become prime tar- ~ 
■get s Of violence. 

Under Diplock, judges have 
to publish the reasoning be- 
hind their verdicts and the 
Irish move would extend this ; 
arrangement to tte three-man 
courts. 

• The Lord Chancellor is 
worried about what would 
happen in the event of a split 
decision. He believes tha t 
publication may well under- 
mine public confidence in the 
judiciary, so fomenting ten- " 
sion ami making the- pro ving 
more difficult to govern.

Jereflay Bamber: he boasted that be conld plot tbe “perfect marder” his fondly at their home in White House Farm, above, in ToUeshunt 


brother. 

Bamber had told foe police 
of his sister’s insanity and 
claimed his father had phoned 
him during the night to say she 
had gone berserk with a gun. 

Police maintain that foty 
continued to keep an open 
mind from the earliest days 
but not until more than a 
month had passed did they 
carry out intensive house to 
house inquiries among the 846 
villagers of ToUeshunt 
D’Arcy. 

Among the catalogue of 
police blunders: 

• They glossed over the feet 
that Mrs CaffeD had appar- 
ently shot herself twice; 

• They missed a gun silencer 


two inches with Mrs CafielTs 
blood. It was hidden by 
Bamber after he realized h 
made the murder weapon too 
long for his sister to have used 
to kill herself; 

• They handled and moved 
the gun with bare hands 
instead of wearing gloves to 
preserve fingerprints; 

• They lost a hair stock to the 
silencer when they sent it for 
forensic examination; 

• They foiled to qnestion 
Bamber on why he had tele- 
phoned a local police station 
instead of dialling 999 after he 
claimed his father had alerted 
him, and why he drove so 
slowly to the arm; 


• They foiled to ask how the 
slim 5 ft 7in Mis Caffdl could 
have first bludgeoned her 6ft 
4in father with the rifle butt 
which broke under tire impact, 
and bow she was unmarked; 

• They foiled to question how 
Mrs CaffelL with poor hand- 
eye co-ordination and no 

i Relatives just 
could not accept that 
Mrs Caffeil carried 
out the murders 9 

experience with guns, could 
have fired 25 shots into foe 
bodies of her family with 
unerring accuracy; 

• They foiled to ask how foe 


could have reloaded the rifle 
twice without damaging her 
immaculatiy manacured naifc 
on tire toughly springed maga- 
zine and dirting ter hands 
with oil and discharge residue; 

• They foiled to question how 
Mrs Caffeil had dean feet after 
supposedly embarking on a 
Moody rampage through foe 
house; 

• They secured permission 
from Bamber on the day of the 
murders to remove blood- 
stained carpets and bedding 
which tbey burned; 

• They foiled to notice on the 
silencer paint chips from the 
undersite of the kitchen 
mantelpiece which was 
heavily scored during NeviU 


Bamber’s struggle for survival; 

• They did not asked Bamber 
fra his fingerprints. Mood 
samples or samples of his 
dothing until more than a 
month after the murders; 

• They foiled to discover until 
October 1, scratches on a 
downstairs washroom win- 
dow which* Bamber had used 
to gain entry and the hacksaw 
Mate outside with which he 
had used to fop slipped the 
self-dosing catch. 

Tbe lackadaisical attitude 
did not end there. For officers 
scarcely took notice of tire 
excellent detective work of 
family relatives who could not 
accept Mrs Sheila Caffdl had 
carried out the murders. 


It was Mr David Boutflour, 
Bomber's fanning cousin, who 
found the silencer three days 
after the murders and offered 
it to foe police after taking it to 
his sister's home for safekeep- 
ing. But they took three days 
to collect it. 

One of the biggest murder 
riddles in recent criminal his- 
tory, the White House Farm 
killings would never have 
mate an Agatha Christie 
novel because it left loo many 
loose ends. 

As one of the villagers in 
ToUeshunt D’Arcy put it “It 
was like painting by numbers. 
Jeremy gave the police tbe 
sketch and they just filled in 
the colours.”

Association of Community | 
and Town Councils because , 
he claims it is pursuing a >

association. Mr Martin £ 
Thomas, said: “Like any other • 
association representing local ?

when we criticize the Govern- * 
menL But that does not : 
involve a campaign.” ^ 


To foe rest of tbe people in 
the village the respectable and 
wealthy Bambers of 
ToUeshunt D’Arcy were foe 
image of foe Archers of 
Am bridge. 

Pillars of the community, 
Mr NeviD Bamber was a 
justice of foe peace and coun- 
try squire while Mrs June 
Bamber, his wife, was a de- 
voted churchwarden at the 
fourteenth century parish 
church of St Nicholas. 

A former fighter pilot, Mr 
Bamber wandered the lanes 
around foe village in his 
leisure hours with a shotgun 
under his arm and a black 
labrador at his heels while his 
wife organized the cleaning of 
the pews and a rota for visiting 
the sick and elderly. 

What the rest of the Essex 
village did not know was the 
anguish foe couple shared 
over foe severe mental illness 
of their volatile daughter, Mrs 
Sheila Caffeil and the 
smoutdering resentment of 
Jeremy Bamber, their son, 
whose Latin good looks at- 
tracted both men and women. 

The lives of foe family, 
which had been plagued by 
tensions, ended in foe early 
hours of August 7 last year 
when Bamber took a gun to 
his parents, sister and her twin 
sons, at White House Farm, 
their Georgian farmhouse. 

Bamber and his sister were 
adopted, through the Church 
of England Children’s Society 
from different families, at the 
age of force months when Mr 
and Mrs Bamber found they 
could have none of their own. 

It is believed that Sheila 
Caffeil was tire illegitimate 
child of the daughter of a 
Church of England cleric. 

After attending foe private 
Maldon Court preparatory 
school in Essex, where 
Bamber is remembered only 
for his aptitude for acting, 
both were sent to boarding 
schools. 

Mrs Gaffefl’s temperament 
led to her being expelled from 
schools in Eastbourne and 
Norwich, but she eventually 
attended a finishing school in 
Swiss Cottage, London. 

Bamber, three years her 
junior and intellectually su- 
perior, fared better at 
Gresham's School, in Norfolk, 
where he passed seven GCE 
CMevels. 

But he also acquired a 
reputation for bullying and 
was regarded by former mas- 
ters as a black sheep. 

It was at the independent 
school, founded m 1555, 
which the arrogant Bamber 
attended between 1970 and 
1978. Ural he learned to 
handle a gun. Gresham’s has a 
national reputation for its 


shooting ranges and Bamber 
joined foe school's combined 
cadet force. 

Bamber’s eight years in 
boarding school also led him 
to resent his mother as he 
could not understand why, 
having adopted him, she 
should send him away. 

His resentment grew during 
the next seven years as Mr 
Bamber imposed the virtues 
of thrift, sacrifice and self- 
reliance in grooming his reluc- 
tant sou to be a fanner, and his 
mother imposed her religious 
disciplines. 


be accentuated with eyeliner. 

Bamber reiisbed the bright 
lights of London when he 
could get away from foe farm 
but his annual income of 
£7,500 thwarted his tastes. He 
dreamed of a Porsche but 
drove a Vanxhatt Astra. 

Furious disputes developed 
at home as his Other declined 
to hand over the reins of the 
family businesses. He grew 
increasingly resent&L too, of 
his sister who was bought a 
London fiat in Mai da Vale. 

Unlike Bamber, Mrs 
CaffelTs taste fra a glamorous

In his late teens Bamber 
spent bis savings travelling 
Australia for a year and then 
borrowed money is 1982 to 
attend a commercial diving 
course in New Zealand before 
rejecting that as a career. 

According to friends, 
Bamber worked bard at White 
House Farm during foe next 
three years and his father 
bought him a 48-acre holding 
as well as a cottage in the 
hamlet of Goldhanger nearby. 

But villagers remember an- 
other side to Bamber, who was 
known affectionately to the 
family as “Jems'. Girls were 
constantly at bis door. His 
effeminate good looks would 


life declined during her twen- 
ties and she sought the solace 
of her rural upbringing. 

After training to be a hair- 
dresser, she attended a course 
at the Lurie Clayton model- 
ling agency and then as the 
model “Bambf* undertook 
several assignments with 
Penny Personal Management 

But the birth of the twins. 
Nicholas and Daniel, m 1979 
when she was aged 21 put an 
end to her career ami the 
break-up of her marriage 
shortly after to Mr Cohn 
CaffelL a London potter, de- 
pressed her. 

Mrs CaffelL frequently in 
debt, eventually sought 


domestic work in London and 
was once driven to having 
“girlie” photographs taken. 
She never sought to have them 
published but after the 
killings, Bamber tried to sell 
them with his life story to The 
Sun fora four-figure sum. 

Mrs Caf fe il had a ferocious 
temper but only her brother 
alleged that she was violent to 
tbe twins. 

Mr CaffeU, aged 35, said: 
“She was a very beautiful 
person but foe was highly 
strung. But she was devoted to 
the children and would have 
been desperately upset at foe 
thought of anyone taking 
them away from her.” 

It was Mis Bamber, from 
whom her daughter's concept 
of evil emanated, who labelled 
her “the devil's child” when 
she found her in a sexually i 
embarrassing position at the i 
age of 17. 

Like Bamber, Mrs Caffefl 
took drugs, inducting cocaine, 
but police have never been 
able to confirm reports that 
she owed money to pushers. 

And, tike her mother. Mis 
Caffeil became obsessed with 
religion. Wish Mrs Bamber 
she attended revivalist meet- 
ing. But by the time she 
suffered her second nervous 
breakdown and went to hos- 
pital in Northampton for 
treatment in March 1985 she 
was suffering severe delusions. 

Those persuaded Bamber 
that his sister was mad enough 
to use as a scapegoat for 
mutter. He realized be could 
fool the police into believing 
that Mrs Caffeil had shot her 
children and parents before 
committing suicide. 

Bamber regarded his 
mother and aster as mad, his 
father as decrepit and decided 
they had forfeited their right 
to live. He had no feelings for 
the twins. 

The mistake Bamber made 
was to tell Miss Julie Mugford, 
his girlfriend, of his plansA 
teacher aged 22, Miss 
Mugford remembers being 
telephoned at her London flat 
foe evening before the mur- 
ders when Bamber announced 
that he was going ahead. 

After a mouth of keeping 
the troth of the murders to 
herself; Miss Mugford came to 
regard him as foe devil 
incarnate. 

Miss Mugford said: 
“Bamber fold me the police 
had told him it was an open 
and shut case. If foe police 
were convinced why should 
they believe me? I was scared 
of what Bamber would do to 
me. But 1 could not cope with 
foe guilt and that is why I went 
to the police.”

Tte outcome of lie meeting of 
t}*?. Foreign Affairs Council in 
^gMy mbouig vesterday was 
^gorabte, Mr Denis Healey, 
*™*f Opposition spokesman on 
foreign and Commonwealth Af- 
w®, told the Commons when 
ne attacked the response of the 
Jpeedng on terrorism. 
.^Although Community min- 
l9*Ss had agreed at earlier 
•rtiEciings to adopt concerted 
action against terrorism, half of 
jffle foreign ministers bad not 
bothered to turn up yesterday 
.god none of them had supported 
the. proposals by Sir Geoffrey 
Bftwe, the Secretary of State for 
Foreign and Commonwealth 
Affairs. 

a statement on the meeting. 
-Sir Geoffrey Howe, the Foreign 
'Secretary, said he had given his 
colleagues a full briefing on the 
Hindawi case and had presented 
them with the conclusive ev- 
idence of Syrian official 
'iriyolvemenL 

- 1 “They were both impressed 
*dnd disturbed", he told MPs. 

. •‘The Greek representative 
*epuld not associate himself with 
any measures or statement 
against Syria or the Syrian 
'government. 

'.‘-“With that sole exception", 
■tfte. Foreign Secretary said, “all 
Trimisters expressed their coDec- 
■live sense of outrage that the 
agencies of a state had been 
: involved in such an incident. 

“They expressed full under- 
standing and support for the 
action we had taken. They 
undertook that no partner 
would accept as a diplomat any 
of the Syrians who had been 
expelled from London in 
connection with this case." 

The political comittee had 
been instructed to meet again on 
November 6 to continue the 
discussion. By that date, ambas- 
sadors in Damascus would have 
presented the Syrian Govern- 
ment with the evidence of what 
had taken place and would have 
reported back. 

It had been agreed to consider 
at the next ministerial meeting 
in London on November 10 the 
possibility of action on: Arms 
sales to Syria; high level visits to 
and from' Syria; the activities of 
Syrian embassies in the member 
states; and security arrange- 
ments affecting the operations 
of Syrian Arab Airlines. 

‘•Yesterday’s proceedings 
went some way, but by no 
means as far as the House would 
have wished, to send the Syrian 
Government a clear message 
that their behaviour has been 
intolerable". Sir Geoffrey Howe 
said. 


FOREIGN AFFAIRS 

Finally. Syria was one of the 
countries for which the 
Comunity's Mediterranean 
Financial Protocols expired next 
Saturday. Renewal required 
unanimity. There could be no 
question of the UK agreeing to 
further financial assistance for 
Syria io present circumstances. 
Mr Healey welcomed particu- 
larly the agreement that the 
Palestinian inhabitants of the 
West Bank and Gaza should get

sure on Sir Geoffrey Howe. 

preferential access to Commu- 
nity markets and enjoy a new 
aid programme. 

“Beyond that, the outcome of 
the meeting was quite 
deplorable”, he told the House. 

Had any of the Community 
governments accepted the 
responsibility of protecting Brit- 
ish interests in Syria? 

The Opposition supported Sir 
Geoffrey Howe’s decision to 
impose financial and economic 
sanctions on Syria by vetoing 
any proposals tor financial aid 
from the Community. 

On South Africa, Sir Geoffrey 
Howe must have found himself 
in some difficulty in arguing 
with his colleagues that they 


Labour continues BBC 
libel case questions 


Labour MPs now believed it 
quite likely that Conservative 
Genual Office had been in- 
volved in a conspiracy. Mr 
David Winnick (Walsall North. 
Lab) said during points of order 
associated with remarks made 
outside the House by Mr Nor- 
man Tebbit about allegations of 
interference with witnesses in 
the libel case brought by two 
Conservative MPs against the 
BBC. 

The allegations were orig- 
inally made by Mr Dale Camp- 
bell-Savours (Workington. Lab) 
in the Commons last Thursday, 
after which Mr Tebbit. chair- 
man of the Conservative Party, 
had said he would answer them 
outside and walked out of the 
chamber. 

Mr Dennis Skinner (Bolsover. 
Lab) said he had been looking at 
the differences between state- 
ments made by Mr Tebbit He 
was prepared to take Mr Tebbit 
on by repeating outside the 
House what he (Mr Skinner) 
said inside iL 

But he had a problem because 
when Mr Tebbit flounced out of 
the chamber he had at first said 
that the witness approached 
Mitchell (Mr David MitchelL 


head of the legal department at 
Conservative Central Office) 
and three hours later he had 
changed it and said Mitchell 
approached the witness. 

What exactly was Mr Tebbit 
saying outside the House? 

It would not be a bad idea to 
have it said inside the House by 
Mr Tebbit in a personal state- 
ment so that MPs could chal- 
lenge him 

Hie Speaker (Mr Bernard 
Wealherill) said that he could 
not help Mr Skinner because he , 
was referring to remarks made 
outside the chamber. 

ff he wanted to find out more, 
Mr Skinner had better lake on 
Mr Tebbit. as he had said. 

Mr Winnick said it was ex- 
tremely difficult to question Mr 
Tebbit because, in his capacity 
as Chancellor of the Duchy of 
Lancaster, he only answered 
questions in the House for about 
five minutes four times a year. 
The Speaker said Parliament 
was ail about making provoc- 
ative statements. 

He was not responsible for the 
Conservative Party any more 
than he was responsible for the 
Labour or Alliance panics. This 
was not a matter for him.

should not allow commercial or 
political, national interests to 
impede concerted action on 
terrorism because the British 
Government had done precisely 
that when the Community had 
considered concerted action 
against South Africa which had 
been guilty of terrorism on a 
large scale. 

Sir Geoffrey Howe said there 
was no question of a whole 
range of commercial and eco- 
nomic sanctions against Syria 
yesterday. 

Mr Nicholas Soawes (Crawley, 
C) said many British people 
believed that our so-called part- 
ners in the Community behaved 
yesterday in a tardy, timid and 
fatuous manner and that the 
French behaviour was 
panhmariy craven. 

Sir Geoffrey Howe shared Mr 
Sooraes’ disappointment at the 
failure to reach unanimous 
agreement 

It was regrettable that the 
ministers had not been able to 
agree to a majority of measures 
but the President of France had 
said on television today that if 
proof of lerrorism existed, 
Europe's response ought to be 
total firmness. He had said, too, 
that there should be no com- 
promise with terrorism and no 
compromise with the states 
involved in h. 

“I look forward to the fulfil- 
ment of that statement”. Sir , 
Geoffrey Howe said. 

He said later that it would be 
difficult to impose a universal 
ban to prevent weapons being 
concealed in diplomatic bag- 


* 


The Government had made 
clear its willingness, in the event 
of manifest danger to human 
life, to provide for screening of 
diplomatic baggage. To go be- 
yond that would involve 
substantial difficulties for han- 
dling diplomatic baggage for 
embassies, including Britain’s 
own. 

Mr Healey said everyone had 
been disturbed. Did the Foreign 
Secretary really mean that the 
Government did not know 
whether any other government 
would represent British interests 
in Damascus after the rupture of 
diplomatic relations? 

Sir Geoffrey Howe said Mr 
Healey was on to a good point 
but not in the way he had put it. 

“There is no problem about 
getting another government to 
represent British interests in 
Syria, but at present the nec- 
essary consent from Syria has 
not yet been forthcoming to 
that. But Mr Healey is right to 
be coucdmed about that." 

Spending 
on books 
‘a priority’ 

The Government needed no 
convincing that spending on 
school books wasa priority. Mis 
Angela Rum bo Id, Minister of 
State for Education and Science, 
said during Commons ques- 
tions, adding that she hoped the 
spending proposals for 1 987-88. 
which implied an increase of 
14 per cent in planned expen- 
diture on education, would re- 
solve the problem of shortages. 

She was responding to Mr 
Geoffrey Lofthoase (Pontefract 
and Castleford. Lab), who had 
pointed out that a recent report 
by the school inspectors (HMls) 
had indicated that half of all 
primary school lessons were 
being affected by the shortage of 
books. That was a serious 
situation _ , 

Mrs Virginia Boffomtey (Surrey 
South West. C) said the pro- 
vision of books was not nec- 
essarily the key necessity for 
effective education. The inad- 
equacy with which children’s 
educational needs were identi- 
fied and the lack of management 
were more important. 

Mrs RaraboM agreed with the 
point.

University cash 
decision soon 


An amnmctiMf abort po- 
rosity fending would be made 
soon, Mr Keanetk Baker, Sec- 
retary of State for Education and 
Science, said daring Com m o ns 
question tune. 

He did not think, he added, 
that the Opposition or the 
mi rersities themselves would be 
too disappointed by iL He had 
already anaoonced an increase 
in fmdng of £54 million next 
year for focal antbority higher 
education. 

Mr Alfred Dobs (B at tersea, 
Lab) said that despite Mr 
Bakerfs recent optimistic speech 
about the fut u re of university 
places, many vice-chancellors 
faced nothing bat ever-increas- 
ing ents in services, staff and de- 
1 partmeots. 

WoaM Mr Baker comment on 
the controversial report pub- 
lished in some newspapers yes- 
terday ; based on the Treasury 
and the Department of Educa- 
tion, which indicated that die 
crisis faring the luin e miti tes 
was even worse than had been 
poblkaliy acknowledged so for? 
Mr Baker: In the cycle of 
ftmding each year the poly- 
technics are dealt with first and 
(also) the colleges of farther 
education. 1 annoenced a 
substantial increase there of 8 
per cent I hope to he able to 
a— fee a decision on the 
universities quite soon aad I 
trust they will not be too 
disappointe d. 

Mr Clement Fiend (North East 
Cambridgeshire, L) said that 
Mr Baker, in fighting for extra 
fending, should ensure access 
was widened so that those with 
genuine ability, even if they did 
not conform to the “identikit” 
picture of a student, had a 
chance of higher education. 

Mr Baker; I want more young 
people to stay on at 18 aad go to 
colleges and pol yte c hnics and 
universities. Since 1979 there 
has been an increase in the 
number of students of 14R000 
fnfl-time and part-time home 
students. That is a thing we can 
all be very proud of indeed.

Neglect of schools is condemned 


The poor physical slate of many 
school buildings had not sud- 
denly occurred over the past 10 
days but had sprung from 20 
years of neglect, Mr Robert 
Dunn, Under-Secretary of State 
for Education and Science, said 
during Commons questions- 

He was replying to Mr Ter- 
ence Davis (Birmingham, Hod- 
ge HilL Lab), who said that, 
according to a report from the 
school inspectors (HMls). a fifth 
of all lessons in primary and 
secondary schools were being 
adversely affected by being held 
in unsuitable accommodation. 

“Was not the minister’s com- 
placency verging on criminal 
negligence?” 

Mr Dunn said he shared the 
concern expressed by the inspec- 
tors. Members of the Labour 
Party must take their fair share 
of responsibility. 


He said earlier that the min- 
ister had received no representa- 
tions specifically on HMls' 
findings. But he had discussed 
the repair and maintenance of 
schools in meetings with the 
local authority associations and 
in the National Economic 
Development Council 
Mr Dale CampbeB-Savoms 
(Workington, Lab) said capital 
allocations in Cumbria were so 
low that the whole educational 
service in parts of the county 
was near collapse. 

“Why doesn’t the Secretary of 
State win an argument in Cabi- 
net and get some more money 
for education?” 

Mi Dunn said, to Opposition 
laughter, that the whole ques- 
tion was about good housekeep- 
ing. Some local authorities had 
chosen in the past not to follow 
such programmes. They were 


now reaping the consequences. 
Mr Martin Flannery (Sheffield, 
Hillsborough, Lab) said there 
was not enough money from rite 
Government to make the 
schools habitable. The Govern- 
ment was helping private educa- 
tion. 

Mr Dsbb said Mr Flannery 
really did not understand what ; 
was going on 

Mr Andrew Bennett (Denton | 
and Reddish, Lab) asked if it 
was not obscene that when the ( 
Government got a little extra ' 
money, it was used on city 
technology colleges rather than ; 
on desperately needed repairs : 
for schools? The Government 
should not take a DIY i 


approach. 

Me Dunn said be objected to the 
way it was implied that all the 
faults had started in recent 
months. They had not. 


increased finding for mfrer- 
sities was very welcome and folly 
supported by Conservative 


Mr Baker: X welcome his sap- | 
pert I do appreciate the im- 
portance of the universities hot I 
am always anxious to point oat 
the equal importance, as I see it, 
of the polytechnics. We should 
take pride hi the fort that the 
number of first-class degrees ia 
polytechnics in 1986 is up by 
20 per cart. 

Mr G3es Radice, chief Opposi- 
tion spokesman on education: 
Does be not accept that the 
"*«»F of the repost of the 
Government's own a c co un ting 
advisers is that continual cuts iu 
fending since 1981 are br in g i n g 
many universities to the verge at 
bankruptcy? 

Is it not time Chat he told the 
Prime Minister that there has 
got to be a U-tnnt in policy to 
uraiataia standards? The Gov- j 
ernment is going to have to I 
provide un iversities with more 
resources. 

Mr Baker: Over the last few 
years there were changes that 
bad to be made in universities 
and I think an rides would agree 
oo Hint- There has been a 
significant in attitudes 

and in giving priority to some 
subjects over others. I hope he! 
will await the announcement I 
hope to make soon and I think 
be wfll not be toe disappointed. 
Mrs Elaine EeQett-Bowman 
(Lancaster, Q asked what 
efforts universities wire making 
to attract outside fending from 
industry. 

Mr Baker: I am charged today in 
the oohmiBS of Tie Times on the 
feet that I su gg este d un i v eisiiie s 
were Ivory towers and did not 
seek support from the private 
sector. The fort that I said that

of maths 
teachers 
‘a worry’ 


EDUCATION 

The Government is concerned 
at the shortage of teachers of 
mathematics, science and craft 
design and technology, Mr 
Kamctii Baker, Secretary of 
State for Education and Science, 
said during Commons question 
time. He said be bad alloc ated 
£16.5 million next year in sup- 
port of in-service training for 
teachers of those subjects. 

Answering a question from 
Mr Jeremy Corayn (Islington 
North, Lab) about the latest 
estimate of the shortages, Mr 
Balter said: f n January 1986, 
local authorities in England 
reported 359 unfilled posts in 
maUun ematicg, 407 in science 
and 201 in craft design and 
technology. 

Although the vacancies 
amount to only just over 1 per 
cent of posts in these subjects, 1 
am concerned about supply. 

Mr Corbyn: These figures are in 
indictment of seven years of 
Conservative government. It is 
pledged to improve the eco- 
nomic performance of this 
country, but if ft docs not 
provide sufficient numbers of 
science, maths and CDT teach- 
ers ft never can do that. 

What plans has he to end the 
process of cutbacks in univer- 
sities. polytechnics and teacher 
training institutions which is at 
the root of this problem? 

In-service training cannot 
solve the shortage caused by 
lack ofe dyiati on arwj t raining in 
universities and other such 
higher education institutions. 

Mr Baker: I have already an- 
nounced increased funding for 
polytechnics next year. I have 
increased the numbers for initial 

tfi mkw tr aining ri gnific untly by 

amounts as high as 20 per cent 
in the next throe years. 

1 refine the suggestion that the 
shortage of teachers is a recent 
problem. It goes back to the 
1940s and 1950s 
Mr Robin Corbett (Bir- 1 
m Ingham, Erdington, Lab); A 
survey of 97 secondary schools 
in the Birmingham area showed, 
about a third of maths teaching 
was bring done by those with 
either weak, or nil, paper 
qualifications. 

Does be accept that these 
gross shortages deny proper 
opportunities to thousands of 
students to acquire these vital 
skills? Will not the establish- 
ment of the rity . technology 
colleges cream off the better 
qualified into what are likely to 
be better equipped and better 
paid jobs and make the situation 
even worse in secondary 
schools? 

Mr Baker: In the first part ofhis 

? uestion he makes a good point. 

agree that, although the va- , 
cancies are only 1 per cent, this 
does mask the problem that a lot 1 
of teachers are not qualified or | 
trained. 

There is no lade of opportu- 
nities. The op po rtun ities are 1 
there. 

Applications for initial train- 
ing in physics and technology 
have improved significantly 
since we announced that— in 
physics by 9 per cent and in 
craft design and technology by 
20 per cent

Westland. 

Lords (230): Housing (Scot- 
land) Bill. Commons amend- 
ments. Public Order BUI, third

Geoffrey Smith 

The Westland debate today 
ought to be one of the peat 
inrritt’Jentary occasions. 

This may well be the last 
major opportunity for the 
House of Commons to exam- 
ine an episode which raised 
serious issues of pnbGc policy, 

led to the resignation of two 
Cabinet ministers, provoked 
widespread criticism of tfae 
Prime Minister’s conduct of 


qnestloBS amresoived. 

But I suspect tint tbe debate 
win tmo oat to be something of 
an anti-climax, if it is, part of 
tbe reason will be the Labour 
Party’s poor par l i am e n tary 
tactics. 

Putting Prime 
Minister in dock 

Their principal and entirely 
legitimate purpose at this 
stage should be to put Mrs 
Thatcher herself in tbe dock. 

It is "her personal conduct 
over tire leaking oT the So&c- 
itor-GeneraTs fetter that re- 
mains the most imported 
unanswered question. Vet La- 
bour has decided not to field 
Nefl Knmocfc in tbe debate, 
which provides a good excuse 
for Mrs Thatcher herself net 
taking part 

But the main reason why the 
debate may not live op to 
expectations is that far even tfae 
most heated controversy a 
point b reached when a sense 
of war weariness sets ia. I fear 
that that point may have been 
reached with Westland. 

It might have be«B different 
had there been a full-scale 
parifomentary debate immedi- 
ately after the pubticatiau of 
the Defence Select Com- 
mittee’s report in July. Tbe 
report itself made a consid- 
erable impact But as it came 
out so near to the summer 
recess teens was not time then 
for the House to gpe it tbe 
attention ft deserved. 

Now there may be a ten- 
dency for MPs aad public 
aKke to fed that this is 
territory which has already 
been covered so many times 
before. What, it will he asked, 
is new? . 

One tinng that is new since 
Partiament rose for the snm- 
mer b the Government's re- 
sponse to tire Sel e ct Com- 
mittee, which certains the

gjviag evidence to select 
committees that they should 
not answer questions which 
are or appear to be directed to 
the oondnetof themselves or of 
ether named individual dvfl 
servants" 

If this nrie were to be 
applied titeraHy it would 
gravely iuhrint the operations 
of select committees. It seems 
to me mere fikdy, therefore, 
that under cover of a general 
doctrine the Government is

The Cabinet spiff over 
teachers’ pay took a new twist 
yesterday, with the Depart- 
ment of Education reacting 
angrily to reports that the 
Government is thinking of 
legislating to impose a new 
package covering salaries and 
conditions on the profession. 

Sources close to Mr 
Kenneth Baker, the Secretary 
of State for Education and 
Science, said that the sugges- 
tion floated elsewhere in 
Whitehall amounted to a “pis- 
tol to the bead” of the teacher 
unions and one that could 
scupper his hopes of getting 
his package agreed by all 
parries to the intractable 
dispute, 

Hopes of a voluntary settle- 
ment are pinned on a meeting 
between the unions and their 
local authority employers tire 
weekend after next 

The Baker package, which 
as disclosed in The Times 
yesterday involves big rises for 
talented and dedicated staff in 
I rerarn for a watertight con- 
I tract of employment, should he 
tabled at that meeting. 

Meanwhile, ministers and 
officials were holding three or 
four meetings a day in an 
attempt to find a way forward.. 


Whitehall sources said the 
legislation under consid- 
eration, which could be in- 
troduced in the next session of 
Parliament, could lead to a 
new framework for paying and 
managing the teaching force 
on both sides of the Border. 

The object would be to find a 
way of ensuring that teachers 
stuck to their side of the 
bargain under any settlement. 

Under it, the largely dis- 
credited Burnham system of 
determining pay levels would 
be swept away, but tbe Gov- 
ernment would not necessarily 
become the direct employer 

The Prime Minister is said 
to be determined that a deal 
worth more than £2 billion 
over several years must put an 
end to tbe sporadic disruption 
that has marred schooling for 
the past few years. 

Yesterday, in the Commons 

the Government was accused 
of “dithering” over tbe dispute 
by Mr Giles Radice, tfae 
Opposition spokesman on 
education. 

Both Mrs Thatcher and Mr 
Baker stonewalled, reiterating 
the now familiar line that they 
want to see an deal that trades 
higher pay for concessions on 
conditions- 


Students in London are 
paying up to £50 a week for 
substandard bed-sits with 
shared washing and lavatory 
facilities, MPs were told 
yesterday. 

That is swallowing nearly 
half their £L246 annual grant 
with the result that an increas- 
ing number are not complet- 
ing their courses, academic 
achievement is fa ll i n g, and 
students are forgoing essential 
spending on books and food. 

The average student is 
spending £9.50 a week on 
food, nearly 40 per cent less 
than the cost of a simple diet 
recommended by the Depart- 
ment of Health and Social 
Security, and £187 on books 
and equipment compared to 
the suggested £310. 

The National Union of 
Students, giving evidence oo 
die opening day of the educa- 
tion committee's inquiry into 
the level of grants, said that 
grants had to rise by 20 per 
cent to restore them to the 
same level in real terms as in 
1 979-80. 

Miss Vicky Phillips, NUS 
president, spoke of a “Weak 
picture of decline" in the 
value of student giants and 
said that opportunities for 


supplementing the grant were 
drying up. 

An NUS survey indicated 
that 43 per cent of students 
recei ve little or nothing from 
parents who were supposed to 
be .malting a contribution, 
while prospects of part-time 
work had “degenerated en- 
ormously”. 

In some cases students were : 
turning to their hanks for, 
overdrafts and “ending up 
quite severely in debt”. 

Miss Phillips said that 
counselling services for wor-j 
tied students were over- 1 
stretched, that half those who 
failed to finish their courses 
were giving lack of finance as a 
reason, and that London col- 
leges were alarmed at the drop 
in the number of applications. 

The committee appeared 
impressed by. the submission; 
one MP described the figures 
as “absolutely shocking” 

When Mr Roger Sims 
(Chislehujst) raised an NUS 
figure showing that 14 per 
cent of an average student’s 
grant was spent on “alcohol 
tobacco and entertainment”, 
the NUS retorted that that 
amounted to about £200 for. 
an academic year, 'or less than 
£5 a week. ’ "■ ■

That has happened over

take responsibility for the

M25 motorway 

Last section of £lbn 
ring road opens 11 

•w — g*J 1 - 


years after go-ahead 


By Rodney Cowtoo^Tnusport Correspowient 


Master wifl world, and built at a cost of ingnp to 114,000 between the 
final tftretch of almost £1 billion. ' 

ai k j Yet it remains cont rove r sia l 


Al. Lond on \wll thus gain a 

rin 8 703x5 more 

than 80 years after it was first 
recommended by a royal 
commission. 

. Those who do a celebration 
^retitj of the motorway in the 
days should see it at 
its best, for yesterday it was 
reponed to be free of all 
roadworks., apart from one 
“*} e closure near South 
Minims, which should be 
open again today. 

The M25 emerged from 
VJJJB controversies in the 
1 960s and 1 970s* which envis- 
aged London having up to 
three or even four concentric 
circles of ring roads, and today 
it remains the most controver- 
sial road in the country. 

It was Dr John Gilbert in 
1 975, Minister of Transport in 
the Labour government, who 
finally ended the controver- 
sies about the number of 
roads, by ruling that there 
should be a single motorway 
around London, between 20 
and 30 kilometres out from 
Charing Cross. Eleven years 
later the M25 has emerged, 
117 miles of it forming the 
longest urban ring road in the 


although it is already a boon 
for much traffic, offering 
routes to the west and east of 
London and to the Channel 
ports. 

Hundreds of thousands of 
trees and shrubs have been 
planted and vasKjuantities of 
earth moved to ensure that it 
damages as little as possible of 
the Green Belt through which 
much of it runs. 

A widespread attitude is 
summed up by Mr Gariy 
Turvey, director-general of the 
Preigbt Transport Associ- 
ation, who said the comple- 
tion of (he motorway was an 
historic day fra British trans- 
port, and one for which they 
had waited 40 years. But, he 
said, the M25 would have 
been better able to cope with' 
the traffic flows of the 1960s 
than of the late 1980s. Never- 
theless, it was £1 billion well, 
spent. 

The fundamental criticism 
is that traffic volumes in some 
areas are already putting pres- 
sure on the M25. Critics point 
to six sections where official 
statistics show that in June 
traffic amounted to more than 
90,000 vehicles a day, reach- 


Charity head in 
expenses dispute 


A three-year power struggle 
within War on Want; an 
international aid charity with 
links to the Labour Party, has 
surfaced with allegations 
about the expenses claimed by 
its successful and conspicuous 
director. 

Mr George Galloway, the 
prospective Labour candidate 
for the marginal seat of Glas- . 

r Hillhead, presently held 
the SDP by Mr Roy 
Jenkins, has increased War on 
Want's income sevenfold 
since he was appointed its 
head in 1983. 

But his assertive style and 
forcing through of drastic 
changes in management have 
caused a rift within the radical 
charity, which formerly had 
an egalitarian structure 
whereby all tasks were shared 
between the staff 
Now some members of (be 
charity's manageme nt council 
have asked fra the audit of its 
1985-86 accounts lb be ex- 
tended for closer scrutiny of 
Mr Galloway’s travel and 
entertaining expenses, under- 
stood to come to £21,000. 

Mr Galloway, aged 32, who 
in three years has taken War 
on Want from 64th to 21st in 
the list of British charities in 
teems of income, yesterday 


angrily refuted the allegations, 
calling them “scurrilous and 
reprehensible.” 

He was dire to confront his 
accusers last night at a meeting 
of the charity’s management 
counriL 

Mr Galloway has denied 
that he deliberately sought out 
top hotels, saying: “The hotels 
I stay at in the Third World 
are already foil of aid officials 
and journalists. The reason is 
that both they and I need to be 
in a hotel where one is in 
contact with the world out- 
side, by phone and telex. ” 

. He said that during the 18- 
month period under review he 
had visited IS countries 
including India, Pakistan, 
Bangladesh, Israel, Nicaragua, 
Costa Rica and Thailand . 

He denied that his Ameri- 
can Express card had been 
withdrawn by the charity.** All 
credit cards are not being used 
fra (he duration of the audit, 
he said. 

Mr Galloway said of the 
audit “L am completely con- 
fident that L will be vindicated 
by it." 

War on Want was founded 
in 1951 by publisher Victor 
Gollancz and Mr Harold Wil- 
son, now Lord Wilson of 
Rievaulx. 


‘I killed 


lover’s 


husband’ 


Kenneth Marcheni yes- 
terday told a jury at Bristol 
Grown Court how he killed bis 
lover's estranged husband, but 
claimed it was self-defence. 

Mr Marchent, aged 35, is 
accused of murdering David 
Parnell and burying him in a 
concrete coffin in the back 
garden. 

He said that his lover. Mrs 
Sheila Parnell, stopped him 
surrendering to police. 

Mr Marchent told how he 
went to the house in Elm Tree 
Avenue, Mangotsfield, Bris- 
tol, which he shared with Mrs 
Parnell, to find her arguing 
with bra husband. 

He said: “As I opened the 
kitchen door Mr Parnell got 
up and went for Sheila — he 
grabbed her arm. I pulled him 
away. 

“I asked Sheila what was 
going on but she said, ‘Watch 
out' and when I turned round, 
David was on me. He hit me 
on the side of the head.” 

Mr Marchent said Ire 
remembered foiling on to the 
table, and the next thing he 
knew he was kneeling beside 
Mr Pameirs body with a 
hammer near by. 

He said: “1 have no recollec- 
tion of taking up the hammer 
or of striking Wows on Mr 
Parnell but I accept I must 
have done. I thought David 

was going to kill us when 1 saw 

him going to Sheila.” 

The trial continues today. 


Student ‘a 


ruthless 


murderer’ 


A student who daimed to 
have comforted a woman as 
she lay dying from more than 
fifty stab wounds in a car park 
went on trial yesterday ac- 
cused of her murder. 

Hereford Grown Court was 
told that (he lolling of Mrs 
Carol Martin was “ruthless, 
bloody and ferocious” and 
that the man responsible had 
tried to hide his deed by 
posing as a good Samaritan. 

Stuart Hopkins, aged 19, of 
Rush Lane, Churchill, 
Reddilch. Worcestershire, de- 
nied murdering Mrs Martin, 
aged 38, in February as she 
retained to her car in King- 
fisher shopping centre. 

Mr Anthony Palmer QC. for 
tire prosecution, said tod the 
arrival of a couple driving out 
of the car park prevented Mr 
Hopkins from escaping. 

“He went through an elabo- 
rate charade of pretending to 
be a good Samaritan who bad 
come across the injured 
woman and was comforting 
her as she lay dying.” 

One of tire defendant’s 
fingerprints was discovered on 
the blade of the murder 
weapon found in a culvert 
outside the car park, but he 
told police be had found the 
knife al the scene, handled it 
without thinking and thrown 
it away in panic, Mr Palmer 
said. 

The case was adjourned 
until today. 


Video Lisa poised to 
be shoppers’ adviser 


By Keith Bindley 


Computer-linked video dis- 
play nmts are about to take 
over front roving sales assis- 
tants in providing directions 
and information in high street 
stores. 

Littiewoods* the store, man 
order and pools organization 
yesterday launched Lisa (Iit- 
ttavoods Instant Shopping 
Adviser), which, can proride 
instant information on a 
store's goods. 

ilea is to be tested at 
department stores hi Cardiff , 
Luton and Aberdeen before 
used flaongboot Britain 
next spring, easterners wffl 


choose the items they are 
seeking on a keyboard and 
obtain printed details on the 
spot. 

Mr Desmond Pitcher, lit- 
tlewoods' chief executive, said: 
“Interactive television, has an 
important role to play in the 
future of retailing. Lisa has a 
future, not only in stores bat 
also in catalogue shops, of- 
fices, shopping centres and 
eventually the home.” 

While lisa can also record 
orders for home delivery, store 
managers will be able to 
increase prices at (be toaefc of 
al ' 


mg 

M3 and Heathrow. This com- 
pares with the usual design 
capacity of a three-lane motor- 
way of about 80,000. 

These criticisms have al- 
ready been partially acknowl- 
edged by the Department of 
Transport with its decision to 
upgrade' sections south of 
Heathrow where provision 
had been made in the original ■ 
construction to make it easy to 
add a fourth lane. At the 
Dartfbrd Tunnel the number 
of toll booths has been dou- 
bled from 12 to 24 to copei 
with demand. 

The Department of Trans- 
prat is, however, very firm in 
saying that there is no ev- 
idence that tire road as a whole 
has too little capacity. The 
statistics show that on 12 out 
of28 sections vehicle flows arc 
between 50,000 and 70,000 a' 
day. 

What appears to have hap- 
’ is that there was a 
to recognize how much 
traffic the M25 would itself 
generate, and bow much peo- 
ple would use it for local 
journeys, travelling a short 
distance along the M25 rather 
than using minor roads. That, 
nrinisters say, merely means 
that it is a victim of its success.

Decaying barns spoil beauty of landscapes 


By John Young 
National Park authorities 
are concerned that thousands 
of traditional builffings, which 
form part of die character and 
appearance of the parks, are 
foiling into decay because of 
lack of funds for their 

mawil^Unrp 

The issue is highlighted in 
the latest issue of National' 


Parks Today \ published by the 
Countryside Commission, 
which points out that there 
arc, for example, more than 
3,000 stone barns scattered 
across the Yorkshire Dales, 
which have become redun- 
dant as a result of changes in 
forming methods. 

Since few of them are listed, 
they enjoy no protection, but 


their loss would drastically 
alter the appearance of the 
whole park. 


Conventions to holiday cot- 
tages, second homes and tour- 
ist shops are popular 
alternative uses. 


At present the park authori- 
ties spend less than 10 per 
cent of their budget on build- 


ings, and are seeking addi- 
tional government funds. 

Professor John Tarn, chair- 
man of the Peak National 
Park planning control 
committee, said: “A landscape 
with ruined buildings, 
wrecked by ignorance or lack 
of imaginative re-use, would 
be a sad legacy from this 
generation.” 


Social workers failed to 
check if marks on Tyra 
Henry’s body, seen 18 months 
before she was killed by her 
father, were bruises or birth- 
marks, an inquiry into her 
death was told yesterday. 

Miss Elizabeth Lawson, 
counsel for the inquiry panel, 
said that Mrs Avolp 
P alethorpe, a Lambeth social 
worker, reported that a mask 
on the child's bottom “looked 
like a bruise”. 

Tyra, aged 21 months, vifes 
beaten to death in September 
1 984 by Andrew NeiL aged 52, 
of Bonham Road, Brixtou, 
south London, who is serving 
life for murder. 

Mrs Palethorpe reported ibe 
marks to a case conference ip 
January 1 983 but there was Ho 
record of any birthmarks 
when the child was bom. Miss 
Lawson said: “There is noth- 
ing to suggest that the dis- 
crepancy was followed up”- 

Miss Lawson said that Mys 
Palethorpe stopped visits lb 
the child's home sev^p 
months before the girl was 
killed and the social services 
department did not monitor 
contact between the child and 
NeiL 

Miss Lawson said that frrap 
February 1984, the arrange' 
meat was that Tyra would 
visit the soda! worker's office 
with her mother by 
appointment. 

The hearing was adjourned 
until today.

Final wish 
of lover 
took home 
away 

Horace Snell's parting gift , 
to the elderly mistress who 
brought happiness to Ms final 
years was an order to get out of 
the home they shared. 

And yesterday the mistress, 
Mrs Charlotte Kell, aged 73, 
who challenged the danse in 
her lover's will was also landed 
with a £10,000 bill for legal 
costs. 

Sir John Arnold, president 
of the High Court Family 
Division, made the costs order 
because Mrs Kell had reluc- 
tantly abandoned her court 
action. 

He coakl offer her only

Ulster Fry 
takes a 
battering 
on health 

By Richard Ford 

The national dish of North- 
ern Ireland took a pounding 
yesterday and a campaign was 
bundled to improve the 
health of the provinces 
population and reduce^ the 
record numbers dying nom 
heart attacks. 

The Ulster Fry, known as a 
“heart attack on a plate”, vias 
described as a killer by ■ 
professor who dlsdosed that 
the province and Scotland 
topped the world league for 
the number of deaths from 
heart attacks. . 

Professor Geoffrey Rose, of 
the London School of Hygiene 
and Tropical Medicine, urged 
people to reduce their intake 
of animal fats by 25 per cent; 
eat more cereals, vegetables

Satellites paying their way 


Satellites and spacecraft are 
daily providing vital evidence 
about the weather, mineral 
deposits, farming, ocean cur- 
rents and even secret military 
bases, according to Dr John 
Houghton, of the Meteo- 
rological Office in Bracknell, 
Berkshire. 

Speaking last night at the 
RoyaJ Society in London, Dr 
Houghton said that scanning 
the earth from space would be 
an important growth area in 
the next decade. 

A quarter of a century after 
the launch of tbe first weather

satellite, accurate forecasts 
were now routine worldwide 
thanks to photographs mb™ 
by spacecraft Meteorology 
was the first subject where the 
cost of satellites could be 
justified by the benefits they 
provided. 

By recording images in care- 
fully chosen colours, or by 
combining several different 
colours, scientists could focus 
on a particular aspect of the 
landscape. 

All this information would 
remain gobbledegook without 
the equipment to process it. 


Dr Houghton said. The British 
National Space Centre re- 
cently took charge of the 
National Remote Sensing 
Centre at Famborough in 
Hampshire and planned to 
develop ways of analysing raw 
data to provide valuable re- 
sults for companies and 
governments. 

“One thing is dear,” he 
said. “With 100 British com- 
panies already using satellite 
images, the potential value of 
remote sensing data now fully 
justifies further spending on 
satellites.

firylanes at breakneck speed, 
wind fa g gin g at the hair. Bat 
now, a model- aircraft maker 
has turned that nostalgia for 
the 1940s into 1986 reality. 

Mr John Pletts has pro- 
duced a replica of the original 
open-top sports car which, 
looks and sounds exactly like 
its famous predecessor; except 
the updated version is only 
half the size and costs nearly 
10 times as ranch. 

The £5,000 model is being 
built in a small workshop 
outside the home of Mr Ptetts, 
aged 43, in Barnard Castle, Co 
Durham. Stretching 69 inches 
from al mrnnh m bonnet to 
boot, the fibreglass and non- 
ferrous metal body and chassis 
is 28 todies wide and 26 inches 
high with a pan-down wind- 
screen and d&spofce racing 
wheels, just like toe original. 

An instrument pond is 
mounted on to the polished 
wood dashboard and young 
driver and passenger are able 
to sink into toe horary of 
snaalated leather upholstery. 

Powered by 12-volt battery, 
the TC reaches only 7mph but 
a sophisticated sound general- 
tog unit and foot pressed hard 
on the accelerator reproduces 
the same throaty roar as the 
original drivers heard as they 
raced through foor gear 
changes. 

The model has headlights; 
tail and brake lights and is 
perfect down to every last 
detail. Accuracy was achieved 
by months of sketching and 
measuring by Mr Pletts of an 
original MG TC on display at 
the Antomobilia Exhibition in 
Hebden Bridge, Yorkshsn. 


eat more cereals, vegetables 
and fruit; take less salt; stop 
smoking and do more exercise 
as a way of reducing tbe risk of 
heart disease. 

Tbe Ulster Fry -bacon, 
egg. tomato, sausage, potato 
and soda bread — is a popular 
item in the diet of many 
people in the province. 

Six. thousand people a year 
die from heart attacks there 
and a further 2,000 from 
strokes, accounting for 50 per- 
cent of all deaths annually in 
Ulster. 

Professor Rose said of the 
fry; “It would make me fed a 
bit sick first thing in tbe 
morning. It is that kind of 
food 1 no longer have any 
desire for. It is a killer and has 
got to go.” 

He criticized central gov- 
ernment for continuing to 
support tobacco promotion 
ana milk subsidy and for 
reducing school meals, as they 
made it more difficult to 
change people's habits. 

He added that it was only 
through growing public aware- 
ness and support for healthier 
eating habits that government 
ministers would become more 
concerned with the problem. 

The Government is spend- 
ing £200,000 to launch the 
“Change of Heart” campaign, 
which it hopes will persuade 
the province to improve its 
eating and exercising habits 
and show more concern for 
■health. 

Mr Tom King, Secretary of 
State for Northern Ireland, 
said: “Northern Ireland has 
almost the worst record in the 
world for earfy death from 
heart disease and it is one 
record we are determined to 
lose. ~ 

“It is a- major challenge to 
every person in the province 
as we have a very poor record 
.of mortality.”

School governors: 3 

No easy route to a 
true partnership 


In a final article on the new Education Act . Mark 
Dowd, Education Reporter, looks ahead to some of the 
possible difficulties in implementing the new legisla- 
tion affecting the way in which schools are governed.

It is all very well to make 
provision for increased num- 
bers of parent governors, but 
the sceptics say, whathappens 
if insufficient numbers come 
forward to fill the vacancies? 

Some schools find it impos- 
sible to fill even one parent 
governor’s position — a diffi- 
culty winch frequently results 
in the head teacher calling on a 
parent ofhis choice to plug the 
gap. 

Q early the onus is on toe 
local education authority and 
the school to engage in a bard 
sell promoting toe attractions 
of this civic responsibility. 
This will require an end to the 
jargon surrounding the de- 
scription of the governing 
body's tasks and duties. 

The impression of the par- 
ent governor’s role which 
probably still occupies most 
parents' minds is that they are 
there to comment upon the 
routine aspects of school life: 
medals for toe school sports' 
gala, toe state of toe school 
lavatories and the dangers of 
allowing dogs in the play- 
ground. 

If candidates are to come 
rushing forward, tins -is a - 
notion that has to be firmly 
laid to rest. 

However, if toe new law is 
heralding toe inexorable rise . 
of real parent power, it will 
inevitably provoke jealousies 
and suspicions among three 
who have so far had things 
largely their own way. 

Many teachers note that the 
original Bffi, mtroduced while 
the industrial dispute was still 

raging, does Homing to in- 
crease their representation on . 
governing bodies. So much for 
toe talk of partnership, they 
say. • _ 

Indeed, if governing bodies 
are to lay greater ctons than 
ever before to be repre- 
sentative oflocal opinion, it 
may put them on a coUisibh 
course with local authorities. 

An example is -the; recent - 

case of Newnham Croft Pri- 


maxy School in Cambridge. 
Erected in 1915, toe school is 
unmod cruized, with prefabs 
comprising 60 per cent of the 
property.' After a concerted 
campaign by the school gov- 
ernors, Cambridge County 
Council finally agreed in 
November 1985 to replace its 
dilapidated buildings. 

However, members of the 
governing body are far from 
overjoyed, as the council is 
planning to, sell off tbe old 
school site and build a replace- 
ment on part of the present 
playing area — an alternative 
whidi the governors say will 
be cramped and noisy. 

Mrs Jean Glasberg, chair- 
man of toe governors, accuses 
the local education committee 
of by-passing them arid 'refitt- 
ing to consider their opinions 
on die issue. 

Mrs Eleanor Jones, who has 
been a school governor for six 
years, says toe is sure tbe 
council did not even consider 
toe governing body's working 
paper, which recommended 
renovation of the school on 
toe existing rite. 

She thinks the councO is as 
motivated by the prospect of 
the cash that will come in 
from the sale of the land as by 
educational priorities. 

“What is the point ofhaving 
governors if they win not even 
listen to us?” she asks. 

The most - noteworthy as- 
pect of the affair is that 10 of 
tbe 13 governors are parents — 
a considerable departure from 
the norm. Many of them came 
forward and were sub- 
sequently nominated by 
political parties on the local 
council. 

Although it is hard to see - 
this pattern’ being repeated 
nationally, this Utile cameo 
offers an insight into what- 
may happen in some regions 
as a result of ihe new legisla- 
tion: ‘ It ’promises to be a • 
fascinating and painful dc-

Defector calls on West 
to isolate Mengistu 

From Paul Vallely 
New York 


A call for a change in the 
policy 'of Western govern*: 
raents towards the Marxist 
regime in Ethiopia has been 
made fay one of the country’s 
leading defectors. 

Together with the resigna- 
tion of the regime’s Foreign 
Minister, Mr Goshu Wolde, at 
the United Nations here on 
Monday, it demonstrates new 
levels of disenchantment 
among moderate members of 
the Ethiopian socialist 
establishment who are op- 
posed to the increasingly doc- 
trinaire authoritarianism of 
the pro-Soviet Government. 

The demand that the West 
should now get tough with the 
Ethiopian leader, _ Colonel 
Mengistu Haile Mariam, came 
from the former Commis- 
sioner of Relief and Re- 
habilitation, Mr Dawit Wolde 
Giorgis, who defected to the 
United States last year. 

After giving examples of the 
regime’s callousness towards 


Mr Goshu: DisUhtsmomeat 
with Addis Ababa policies, 
the famine victims, Mr Dawit 
called on the US and other 
governments to issue a forth- 
right condemnation of the 
Mengistu dictatorship. 

“The West is trying to read 
between the lines or certain 
government statements. But 
in current Ethiopian politics 
there are no messages between 
the lines,” he said. He also 
called for economic sanctions 
by the West

EEC snub on Syria angers Britain 


FVoni Richard Owen 


As FFr officials digested 

Britain over sanctions against 
Syria, there was criticism of 
“precipita te ” British behav- 
iour, matched on the British 
side by anger at the laid; of 
anything much except moral 
support and sympathy from 
hs partners. 

The only agreed moves are 
the btackhsting .of Syrian dip- 
lomats expelled from London 
and the presentation to 
Damascus of British evidence 
of Syrian involvement in 
"terrorism. 

KRP rfrrJmnatc . mni ptoiiuvi - 

that Britain had acted “either 
arrogantly or naively” in ty- 
ing to pul pressure on its EEC 
partners at a meeting from 
which six out of 12 foreign 
ministers were absent 
Herr Hans-Dietrich Gen- 
scher ofWest Germany and M 
Jean-Bernard Raimond of 
Fiance had to be contacted 
urgently at the Frankfurt op- 
era, where they were enjoying 
a Franco-German “cultural 
summit”- 

There were fears that “this 
sort of episode” would re- 
inforce Mis Thatcher’s scep- 
ticism about the EEC and 
undermine the for thcoming 
London EEC summit. 

But Dutch, Belgian and 
other officials said there was 
stQl hope that the EEC would 
adopt some of the measures 
Sir Geoffrey Howe tried un- 
successfully to have adopted 
at Luxembourg on Monday. 

The next op p ort u n i ty will 
be the foreign ministers’ meet- 
ing in London on November 
10, by which time the Europe- 
ans will have been able to 
digest tbe evidence gathered 
by Britain of Syrian govern- 
ment complicity in terrorism. 

The mam obstacle to agree- < 
meat remains Greece* which 
argues that Britain’s evidence 
is inconclusive and that Syria 
holds the key to a Middle East 
settlement. 

Both Mr Leo Tindemans, 
tiie Belgian Foreign Minister,

EEC affairs — found Sir 
Geoffrey’s dossier of evidence

Setback in UK defeat 


Greek-US 
finks likely 

From A Correspondent 
Athens 

The Greek refusal to join 
the EEC in condemning Syria 
conforms to the policy of the 
Prime Minister Mr Andreas 
Papandreou, of not blaming 
any country for international 
ter rorism , and hi g hli g hts the 
Socialist Government’s ties 
with radical Arab states. 

Observers said the Greek 
stand may set back recent 
efforts at rapprochement noth 
the United States. 

But the decision is in fine 
with analysts* predictions that 
Mr Papandreou would revive 
an anti-Western foreign policy 
in an attempt to win back 
disgruntled left-wingers who 
did not back, his PanheUcnic 
Socialist Movement in local 
elections this month. 

It was the second time this 
year that Greece had thwarted 
united EEC action against an 
Arab country allegedly in- 
volved in terrorist activities. 
In April, Greece refused to 
implement EEC diplomatic 
sanctions against Libya. 

Three months later, though, 
the Government said Libya 
was reducing its diplomatic 
mission in Athens by two- 
thirds, a move diplomats said 
was intended to mollify 
Greece’s Western allies. 

Greek ties with Syria are 
considered even closer than 
with Libya. 


claim by 
Damascus 

By Nicholas Beestoo. 

Syria claimed yesterday that 
Britain had suffered a damag- 
ing vote of no-confidence 
from the EEC countries when 
they failed to disriptine 
Damascus. 

“European public opinion 
refused to be dragged nehinfl 
the falsehoods ofthe British 
government at the Luxem- 
bourg .meeting,” Damascus 
radio announced. “Britain 
was exposed to trig political 
defeat and frustration.” 

A Syrian diplomatic source 
in London said the European 
decision had “completely 
vindicated” Syria. 

The source added that the 
decision would serve to^polar- 
ize Britain's position m the 
Middle East because it was no 
longer represented in key 
hard-line states such as Libya, 
Iran and now Syria. 

Damascus radio claimed 
that tiie government had 
joined the “American-Zionist 
affiance”. 

Meanwhile Syrian Embassy 
staff were packing. up yes- 
terday to meet the Friday 
expulsion deadline. 

t AMMAN: Jordan and 
North Yemen said that the rift 
between Syria and Britain 
would set back the search for 
lasting peace fry creating fur- 
ther tension in the region 
(Reuter reports).

future court bearing. 

Railway staff are the her- 
itors of a lore and proud 
tradition of efficiency in an 
otherwise hopelessly ineff- 
icient industrial nation and are 
among the best-paid workers 
in Egypt. 

Their sudden strike on July . 
2, which left up to a adOton 
people stranded ou their way 
home from work, deeply 
shocked the GoverranenL If 
well-paid employees Eke nO- 
waymen could be dissatisfied 
with their conditions, it was 
asked, what would happen 
uext7 

Mr Mohamed d-Moray , 
the dtaiiman of Egyptian state 
railways, is himself a former 
staff worker — he was a steam 
locomotive boiler enginee r in. 
the Abu Zabal workshops 


when he started ou the raff- 
ways 30 yean ago — and 
believes firmly in the tra- 
ditions of timekeeping ou has 
trains. 

Indeed, his onto" office walls 
at Ramses Street station con- 
tain bo fewer than 18 cal- 
endars, three for 1985* one for 
1984* and almost all ffhm- 
trated with pamtmgs iff steam 
and diesel locomotives cross- 
ing viaduc t s, entering tunnels 
and pulling into incredibly 
neat provincial Egyptian sta- 
tions. 

Mr ri-Mocsy can check the 
punctuality of aO the Mg 
expresses into Ramses Street 
because his entire office gently 
shakes every time a train 
arrives or departs below him. ‘ 

“We hare a long history and 
many traditions,” he says. 
“Every one of our employees 
feels the railways are Us 
home. Each man is pleased 
whea he knows the trams are 
nulling on tune.” 

Mr et-Msnsy is right Hjs 
nutwaymen are aming the 
most co ur teous and hard- 
working Egyptians, albeit 
kfajtriiag on a rail system 
whose 4*600 kffometres (2£75 
miles) of track is badly in need 

of TUf wuKrt nBhig and whose 

raffing stock of more than 
1,000 loc om otives has still to 
be modernized under a five- 


The reasons for this are stiH 
evident among the dust- 
covered exhibits in the neg- 
lected railway museum which 


lies to a filthy street not hr 
from Mr d-Mony*s office. 

Inside, the rare visitors caa 
find preserved the Khedive 
IsmaSTs personal train, still in 
its golden livery. A steam 
locomotive still dis- 

plays the worn brass plaques 
of its Victorias makers. “En- 
gine No 1295,” says ore, 
“Robert Stephenson A Co, 
Newcastk-oo-Tyue, 1862.” 

There is a Victorian British 
as well as an Ottoman tra- 
dition behind the Egyptian 
railways, which meant tint the 
strike ami its afte r math came 
as a profound shock to the 
Government. Thousands of 
nihraymen originally took 
part, walking offtbe footplate 
of tfaeg loc om ot ives in Ramses 
Street, Giza aad most of the 
big stations between Cairo, 
Aswan and Alexandria. 

Railway strikes are illegal 
bra, according to officials at 
Ramses Street, a new leader* 
ship which had just been 
f b f M to an moffidal rail 
Bsion wanted to show their 
strength by demanding salary 
increases throughout the 
tr a ns p or t system. 

Bat, as Mr el-Morsy ex- 
plained, an engine driver can 
earn up to 350 Egyptian 
ponds (£150) a month, a 
remarkable wage compared to 
the pittance earned, for exam- 
ple, by the Egyptian sec uri ty 
pofice who rioted ova* their 
salaries m February. 

Mr el-Morsy refuses, pub- 
licly, to discuss the raffway 


strike on the ground that it is 
“a political question”. But it 
appears from other railway 
officials that ft occurred so 
suddenly that Mr d-Musy 
was not even at work at the 
time. 

The strikers w me demand- 
ing a higher salary scale* a 
fivefold increase to bonuses 
paid for punctuality and dis- 
tances covered by theft trains, 
as well as the establishment of 
an insurance fund. 

Two horns after the strike 
began, Mr ri-Motsy’s vice- 
chairman met le aders of the 
unofficial muon and told them 
to go back to wmi, promptly 
ordering them to identify the 


Three hundred were ar- 
rested at first. Then 200 were 
'freed afauost immediately. 
Then it was announced that 
only 60 would remain to 
custody. Finally, die 37 who 
were actually charged were 
released earfier this week. 

The Government, according 
to opposition pofiticaas to 
Cairo* was unwilling to tovotve 
itself with employees whose 
work is so essential that they 
are not allowed to strike, bra 
whose further dissatisfaction 
would so dadocate the com- 
try’s economy that they cannot 
be Imprisoned. 

Now that the raflwaymen 
have tasted i n du st ri a l power 
and got away with it, however, 
there may be serious trouble to

Mitterrand denies arms deal 
and hints at shift on terror 


Sources said Britain and 
other states would try to 
persuade Greece over the next 
two weeks that previous EEC 
declarations on terrorism — to 
which MrPangakn subscribed 
on Monday — enshrine prin- 
ciples which must be applied 
to Syria as they were earlier 
applied to Libya. 

Officials raid that aUtip ngh 
Britain realized the limits of 
EEC co-operation, a further 
damaging row would be a 
major blow to European 
credibility. 


France finds itself to a 
particularly embarrassing 
Mhathu over the Hfodawi 
affair. While it would like to 
show solidarity with Britain, it 
feels it canaoi risk talting too 
firm a stand against Damascus 
at a time whea it needs Syrian 
sup port to prevent a new 
outbreak of terrorist violence 
in France, in seesrtog the 
release of French hostages to 
Beirut; and to ensming the 
security of Fkench forces serv- 
ing with the UN peacekeeping 
farce in southern Lebanon. 

Hence the somewhat 
ambiguous and even dis- 
cordant comments of various 
French leaders over the past 
few days. The Government, 
winch secretly is convinced 
that the Syrians were behind 
the wave of bombings to Paris 
last mouth, has alternately 
blown hot and add toward 
Damascus to its attempts to 
step the violence. It is at 
present to the middle of a 
warm phase. 

After France’ s seem ingly 
rather negative attitude to- 
ward Britain’s request for 
support over the Htodawi 
affair at Luxembourg <* Mon- 
day, President Mitterrand of- 
fered hope yesterday of a more 
positive French stance when 
he called far “complete firm- 


ness and solidarity” toward 
terrorism. 

In a French teterisioa inter- 
view immediately after the 
Franco-German samnift in 
Frankfurt, M Mitterrand said 
he hoped foe 12 community 
members would examine fur- 
ther the involvement of “cer- 
tain states” in acts of 
terrorism at the informal 
of EEC foreign min- 
isters in London on November 
10. 

ft might then be possible to 
see whether the British pos- 
ition conU be s u pp ort ed by 
others, he said. “At off events, 
fadmdnal arrangements be- 
tween a particular European 
country and particular state 
should give way to solidarity 
agamst the crime,” be added. 

M Mitterrand strongly de- 
nied reports of a French arms 
deal with foe Syrians. “There 
is no question of France seHtog 
anus (to the Syrians),” he 
said. M Jacques Chirac, the 
Prime Minister, has so hr 
made no official m*imv on 
the Htodawi affair, but M 
Jacques Toubon, general sec- 
retary of the Ganllist RPR 
party, was thought to be 
edging his master’s voice 
when b said ft was important 
“to keep one’s calm and sang- 
froid”. 


While understanding Mrs 
Thatcher’s decision to break 
off relations with Syria, M 
Toubon felt it was essential 
“only to take action on the 
basis of proof”. He seemed to 
be saying that foe French 
Government needed proof of 
direct implication of foe Syr- 
ian Government in terrorist 
acts in France before ft would 
be wining to give Britain its 
direct 

M Pierre M&haignerie, the 
Minister for Housing and 
Transport and one of the 
leaders iff foe centre-right 
UDF party, was more explicit 
about the reasons far French 
reticence when he mM that 
nothing should be done to 
jeopardize France's negotia- 
tions to secure the release of 
the FTOoch hostages and to 
bring to an end foe terrorist 
attacks in France. 

However, other UDF lead- 
ers have criticized the 
Government's stand. M Jean- 
Clande Gandin, leader of the 
UDF group in the National 
Assembly, regretted that the 
Government had not shown 
geater solida rity w ith Britain. 

The former President, M 
Valery Giscard (TEstatog, aba 
called for France to show sock 
solidarity.

US to push 
for nuclear 
cutbacks 
at Geneva 

From Christopher Thomas 
Washington 

President Reagan has in- 
structed US negotiators in 
Geneva to propose a 50 per 
cent cut in superpower nudear 
weapons in five years and to 
seek the elimination of aQ^> 
mtennediate-range weapons.-,] 
in Europe. 

The proposals also set, the*, 
goal of eliminating all ballistic.- 
nudear missiles - those that 
leave the atmosphere during, 
flight — in 10 yeaxs. A senior, 
administration official said,-.- 
tbe plan was approved ot)<\ 
Monday at a While House-* 
meeting of Mr Reagan and A*v, 
p lanning group of the Na^^ 
tioual Security Council. <■£ 
The decision is in line with,:- 
Mr Reagan's discussions at 
the Reykjavik summit with 
Mr Mikhail Gorbachov, the**, 
Soviet leader. The US 
pledge adherence to the 1972«, 
Anti-Ballistic Missile (ABM) . ■» 
Treaty for 10 yearn before s 
deploying any space-based;.' 
defensive system under Mr 
Reagan's controversial Star. • 
Wars programme. .«■ ; 

But the President continues/ , 
adamantly to reject Mrn. 
Gorbachov’s insistence tbaU. 
Star Wars testing should be-, 
confined to the laboratory. *■ ,» 
The proposal for eliminat-*-.. 
ing all ballistic missiles within 
10 years came after intense*', 
argument within the Admin*-,;' 
istration. The Joint Chiefs of**! 
Staff are believed to have- 
expressed some concern about -, 
the military implications of/ 
both superpowers abandoning-*, 
ballistic nuclear missiles, a.,- 
concern reflected during pri- - . 
vate consultations with'-” 
Britain and West Germany. 

The European allies are 
being consulted about the US 
proposals. 

US officials say a meeting 
has been tentatively set for 
November 6 in Vienna be- 
tween Mr George Shultz, the 
US Secretary of State, and Mr 
Eduard Shevardnadze, the 
Soviet Foreign Minister. Both 
will be attending a review 
meeting of the 1975 Helsinki 
agreement on European 
security. 

Their talks, which may last 
for two days, will assess 
developments since the ice^"

S2 billion win be 
^marked for paying the in- 
terest due on the 1986 debt 
and on paying back outstand- 
ing interest from 1982 to 1984. 

Poland cannot generate 
enough economic growth and 
boost export revenues quickly 
enough to catch up with its 
aebt payments. Although the 
overall debt figure wilL 
according to Western 
ti mates, peak in 1989-90 at 
about the $32 billion mark. 



From Roger Boyes, Warsaw 

interest payments wiQ contin- 
ually squeeze the economy. 

Mr Samqjlik conceded that 
a growth m exports to the 
West of 7 per cent and overall 

economic growth of 5 per cent 
— the level needed to meet all 
the interest payments to the 
West — was unrealistic. The 
current {dan for next year 
antiepates a maxim um growth 
of 3^S percent 

Exports will increase only 
sluggishly and Poland will not 
be able to batten down im- 
ports for modi longer. It 
seems dear that Poland has 
abandoned its target, set eariy 
last year, of finding by 1990 
$3.6 billion for interest 
repayments. 

So Western creditors mil 
have to wait, although, as 
usual, Poland has. settled, 
quickly with commercial 
banks. 

“We are not getting credit 
support from our creditors,” 
said Mr Samojlik. “We need 
to work hand in hand with 
them." 

Evidently new credits from 
Western governments would 
make it easier fen- Poland to 


pay back its debts and im- 
prove export performance, the 
minister said. 

There appears to be no early 
prospect of major loans from 
the International Monetary 
Fund or the World Bank, 
which has a team in Warsaw 
presently assessing Poland’s 
potential for partiepating in 
joint projects. The earliest 
chances of credits would 
appear to be the summer of 
next year when the fiscal year 
of 1988 begins. 

The Polish government is 
already thin Icing in terms of 
IMF-style austerity pro- 
grammes. This will entail yet 
more price rises. 

The aim, said the Finance 
Minister, is to bring domestic 
and worid prices into line and 
radically cut subsidies by 
199a 

For the Polish consumer 
this will mean, above all, 
increases in fuel and enemy 
costs. The average rise m 
prices next year should be just 
over 9 per cent but antiepated 
increases in alcohol and to- 
bacco prices wiD push this up 
to around 14 per cent.

Warsaw new-deal talks stall 


From Our Own Correspcmdteiit, Warsaw 

Secret talks between the 
Polish authorities 


— and in- 
dependent Catholic advisers, 
sketching out ways of opening 
up new fines of communication 
between leaders those led, 
appear to have reached a 
stalemate. 

After a recent session a 
Government neg oti ator raised 
his hands in mock protest 
rasped: “Well, what else are 
yoa asking of as? You want 
this thing as much as we do.” 
This “flung” the subject «f 
foe confidential disensshms, is 
a social-consultative coanriL 

Theoretically the Govern- 
ment is wi lling to allow some 
of its most bitter critics — 
though not Mr Lech Walesa, 
or any of the Solidarity leaders 
- to sit at a table with the 
authorities and mflnmff of. 
ficial policies. 

Somehow Poles have to he' 
given a way of letting off steam 
without reviving Solidarity. 
There is also a aeed to avoli 
arresting political offenders 
because that would negate the 
propaganda value of the 
smmner’s amnesty. 


Last week the Polish Par- 
liament approved a BS11 
extend ing toe powers of mag- 
istrates courts which ™ now 
try - and sentence to np to 
three months* jail — Sofidarity 
activists. 

All rides agree that talk is 
preferable to jafl and so for 
nobody has been re-amsted 
since toe summer amnesty 
involving 225 poBticaf pris- 
oners. Yet miking , as the 
COtlmlfc advisers are discover- 
ing, is net so simple. 

Among these who accept 
that there is need for (fialogne 
there are those who want only 
to talk if toe workros are 
represented, these who want to 
Bad out more before becoming 
involved and a small minority 
who H»n»h that talk on any 
terms is better ft- the 
present paralysis. 

Hie latest roend of negotia- 
tions is being led by Mr 
K a am f e sz BardcewsM, a vet- 
eran party man and dose ally 
.of General Janoehk^ and Mr 
StamsJaw Ciosek, a former 
trade muon minster. 

Thdr Catholic counterparts 


include a former Solidarity 
adviser. Dr Kizystof Sfiwin- 
ski, Mr Andrzej Wielewieyslti 
and Mr Jerzy Turowkz, editor 
of Tygodaik Pomzeckxy, the 
Ca t h o lic weekly, and a con- 
fidant of the Pope. 

An abiding problem is that 
the Chnrch does not want to 
Mesa talks cnwdnffhptf cm the 
terms of the Comnnmist Party,

Hud means the Govern- 
ment has to define more 
closely what it has in mwa* 
will the council be able to 
initi a te legislation? Will ft he 
able to publish its critici sm s? 
What exactly do the authori- 
ties mean by causnftatiaa? 

The main pofot, say Catho- 
lic advisers, is to make sure 
that toe councils are not a 
sham and to ensure that 

Sofidarity is not betrayed.

Tokyo (Reuter) — A mid-air 

blast on board a Thai Inter- 
national _ Airbus, which in^ 
jured 62 people and forced an 
emergency landing last Sun- 
day, may have been caused by 
faulty gas cylinders, but explo- 
sives nave not been ruled out 
a Transport Ministry official 
said yesterday. 

A ministry investigating 
team found numerous tiny 
boles in the plane's pressure 
bulkhead, possibly caused by 
metal shards hitting it with 
great force, reported a team 
spokesman, Mr Hiroshi Fuji- 
wara. He said the boles could 
have been caused by explod- 
ing gas cylinders, such as fire 
extinguishers, but he did not 
rule out the possibility of 
explosives. 

“We have asked the police 
tocheck for powder bums,” he 
said “In the absence of a 
chemical reaction m gyring 
explosives, it might still be 
possible that an explosion of 
some kind took place. 

“We could think of a num- 
ber of cylinders containing 
pressurized gasses of various 
types that are located on the 
aircraft (that might have ex- 
ploded) ... ", An Initial in- 
vestigation of the aircraft 
uncovered no sign of explo- 
sives, police said. 

Mr Fujiwara said the bulk- 
head and the wall of an 
adjacent toilet were riddled 
with holes up to 10 miHi- 
tnetres in diameter. The bulk- 
head is an aluminium-faced, 
umbrella-shaped barrier sep- 
arating the passenger cabin 
from the nnpressnirized tail 
section. 

He said several larger holes 
were punched through the 
fuselage and were visible on 
the outer surface of the plane’s 
left side. A fissure was discov- 
ered in the left wing. 

Kyodo News Agency re- 
ported that members of the 
investigation team said they 
suspected there had been an 
explosion in the toilet area, 
partly because one stewardess 
told them she was hit in the 
chest by metal shards as she 
walked towards the jet’s rear. 

The investigators reasoned 
that, if the bulkhead had 
spontaneously ruptured, the 
loss of pressure would have 
sucked any loose material into 
the tail section, Kyodo re- 
ported. The incident occurred 
about 20 minim* before the 
plane landed at Osaka in 
western Jaypan on a scheduled 
'it from Bangkok and Mar 
with 246 people on board.

San Jnan (Renter) - Bombs 
exploded at three US mifitaiy 
sites in Puerto Rico yesterday, 
one day after a published 
report that the Pentagon may 
train Nicaraguan Contras in 
Puerto Rica 

Damage was described as 
extensive after a bomb blast at 
a recruiting station in Fajardo, 
a town near a US Nary 
training station on toe island's 
east coast, police said. One 
man was mjared. 

Another explosion occ u rred 
yesterday morning in front of a 
US Navy raniting office in 
the heart of San Jnan and 
there was a third bo m bing " 
near the US AnnyV Fort ■ 
Buchanan, roar -S»" Jnan. 

The police bomb squad de- 
fused bombs at similar targets 
in two other towns and 
pl anne d to defuse a bomb 
found in front of the National 
Guard Anuonry in Mayagnez, 
on the west coast. 

An anonymous caller to a 
San Jnan radio station cred- 
ited the clandestine pro-in- 
dependence organization, Los 
Macbeteros, for Che bombings. 

• SAN JQS& Sedor Alfonso 
Robekt, a leader of toe anti- 
Sandinista rebels, said US 
training of Contras would be at 
bases in toe United States, not 
in Central America (Martha 
Honey writes). 

In an interview on Monday, 
Sedor Robelo, one of three 
leaders of the United Nica- 
raguan Organization, the win 
Contra umbrella group, 
that, after approval of toe new 
US aid package, “training is a 
tap priority. We are not going 
to be so eager about quantity 
as about quality”. 

He said the intention is to 
increase toe number of Contra 
fighters operating out of Hon- 
duras from 17,000 to 20,000 
and to build np those in sooth

STC have led the world in underwater 
telecommunications for over a century. 

For example it was an idea conceived by 
STC that led to fibre optic communication 
systems being developed worldwide. 

It's not surprising therefore that STC are 
the first company to take this advanced 
technology to its logical conclusion. 

The world's first international glass fibre 
optic cable link. 

The link from London to Europe is now 
complete and it's the most advanced in 
existence allowing far greater capacity and 
more cost efficient traffic 

Once again STC have shown the 
competition the way. And once again we've 
proved we're the company who can deliver 
the best worldwide.

Joint military exercise 
between Japan and 
US worries Russians 

From David Watts, Chitose, Hokkaido, northern Japan 


An American A 10 ground 
attack aircraft wheels in a 
seat arc over Japanese in- 
fantry and tanks struggling to 
dislodge “red" force from the 
top of a frigid ridge ankle-deep 
in mud. 

Occasionally the stubby jet 
darts down to strafe a target 
and eventually the red force 
flees in face of the combined 
Japanese and American ass- 
ault 

Yesterday’s operation was 
just pan of a much wider 
exercise, the first of its kind 
involving simultaneous co- 
operation between the land, 
sea and air forces of the two 
countries, involving not only 
American units from Japan, 
Hawaii and the Philippines 
but the A 10 attack aircraft 
and Bronco observation air- 
craft brought in from South 
Korea. 

Only a few years ago such 
co-operation between Japa- 
nese and American forces and 
the implied co-operation with 
South Korea would have been 
unthinkable, so sensitive was 
the Japanese public to close 
regional strategic co-operation 
with other powers. 

But the years appear to have 
made the Japanese public less 
concerned about such things. 
While their concern has de- 
clined, however, that of the 
Soviet leader, Mr Mikhail 
Gorbachov, has increased. 


Greeting President Kim D 
Sung of North Korea at the 
weekend he warned the 
United States, Japan and 
South Korea about building 
an Eastern equivalent of Na to. 

The war games now on in 
Hokkaido, Japan's fiat, lush 
and vulnerable northland, 
only a few minutes flying time 
from (lie Soviet-occupied for- 
mer northern islands of Japan, 
do not amount to an Eastern 



Naio, but they are dem- 
onstrating a level of co-opera- 
tion not seen before. Besides, 
says General Shigediro Mori, 
chairman of Japan's Joint 
Staff Council, the country's 
Constitution prevents- such 
military arrangements with 
other countries. 

Japan is certainly no longer 
shy about saying who the 
potential enemy is. The ex- 
ercise envisages an invasion 
by “orange" forces coming 


from the direction of the 
Soviet Union. 

They have landed in Hok- 
kaido and the combined 
forces of Japan and the US are 
now busy repelling them. 
American Boeing E 3 Awacs 
command and control aircraft 
are directing Japanese aircraft 
and ships, while Japanese 
Awacs aircraft are sending 
American jets into action. 

Off shore, American and 
Japanese anti-submarine air- 
craft are dealing with the 
submarine threat while their 
jets tangle in dogfights 

The exercise, which in- 
volves some 5,000 men from 
each country and almost 200 
aircraft and ships, will feature 
helicopter-borne infantry op- 
erations and a final firepower 
demonstration. 

General Charles Dyke, 
Commander US Army, Japan, 
is in no doubt about the 
success of the co-operative 
effort: the Japanese forces be 
says are “stacked with out- 
standing officers- -and co- 
ordination is thorough, coro- 
pleteand uninhibited". 

The co-operation has in- 
creased because “the threat 
has increased significantly". 

But be does not see foresee 
annual month-long military 
exercises on the scale of those 
held with South Korea each 
year, 


Proposal 

for peace 
prayer day 
in Kyoto 

Assisi (AP) — The day after 
leaders of the world's major 
religious met in a historic 
gathering of fastiiQ and 
prayer for peace, Japanese 
religions leaders yesterday 
proposed ft tisdn summit for 
next year in Kyoto. 

The proposal was immedi- 
ately welcomed by some who 
participated in die gathering, 
led by the Pope. A Hinds 
priest and an American ha- 
tberaa jpfaWw said farther 
r ow to c to might lead to a 
permanent world council of 
religions dedicated to peace. 

The Japan Conference of 

tfrns and other religions in 
Japan, pot forward the pro- 
posal at a meeting of largely 
Doo-Christhm leaders who 
came here at the Pope's 
invitation. 

Mr G|jm Sugftani, tire dep- 
uty secretary-general of the 
Japanese group, said that a 
two-day summit would take 
place in the Buddhist En- 
ryakn-p Temple on Moral 
Hid in Japan's ancient capital 
of Kyoto on August 3 and 4. 

“We make this suggestion 
in the spirit of the JPope," said 
a statement which accompa- 
nied the invitation. 

Monsignor Grain Nicolai, 
a spokesman for the Holy See, 
said in Vatican City that no 
invitation had yet been ex- 
tended to the Pope.

When cotton yam processors James Sutcliffe & Sons Ltd 
were told of the massive savings they could make by switching 
from oil to electricity they were, frankly, sceptical. 

Ian Flint, Industrial Sales Engineer at Yorkshire Electricity 
Board, had taken a hard look at the oil boiler - used to provide 
heat for steaming cotton yam and for space and water heating in 
the works canteen - and predicted substantial benefits by 
switching to electridty. 

YEB carried out detailed tests before recommending 
\ the installation of a highly efficient electrode boiler for 
yam steaming, with separate electric space and 
water heating equipment in the canteen.

Brisbane 
takes hard 
line over 
cannabis 

Fran Stephen Taylor 
Brisbane 

At a tirpe when most 
Australian states are moving 
towards fighter penalties for 
possession of cannabis, the 
northern state of Queensland 
again demonstrated its 
habit of pulling against na- 
tional liberal trends. 

A new Drug Misuse Act. 
which came into effect in the 
state on Monday, has brought 
protests not just from ovti 
liberties groups, but also from 
police afraid that foe seventy 
of the penalties will dnve 
dealers to desperate measures 
to avoid being caught. 

The Act provides for life 
imprisonment for possession 
of 500 grammes of marijuana; 
for anyone convicted of 
possessing two grammes of 
heroin or cocaine the penalty 
is mandatory. 

The original Bill was wa- 
tered down somewhat after an 
eaiiier outcry, but in its 
amended form was pushed 
through Parliament with little 
debate. 

It is not the first controver- 
sial legislation passed by the 
ultra-conservative govern- 
ment of Sir Johannes Bjelke- 
Petersen to reduce the use of 
drugs — particularly cannabis, 
which is widely grown in 
Australia and fore gained gen- 
ual social acceptability in the 
past 10 years. 

Possession of small quanti- 
ties of cannabis for personal 
use has been decriminalized 
in South Australia, the most 
liberal of the states. 

In Queensland, however, 
the state administration ap- 
roved an amendment to the 


r * 


r tf* 


to 


alcohol sales to those defined" 
as “drag dealers, sexual per- 
verts or deviants and child 
molesters". 

No action under this 
extraordinary law has yet been 
taken, but legal groups fear 
that the new Act is bound to 
lead to miscarriages of justice. 
The Queensland Bar Associ- 
ation said foe wording of foe 
legislation meant that life 
sentences would be imposed 
for comparatively minor drug 
offences. The Council for 
Civil Liberties described ft as 
“a tragedy”. 

A spokesman for the 
Queensland Police Union said 
policemen had grave reserva- 
tions about the Act. Traffick- 
ers feeing a fife sentence, “wifi 
definitely be wilting to take 
risks to escape". 

The Act also brought a 
protest from an independent 
candidate in Saturday's state 
election, who was arrested 
after smoking what he in- 
dicated was cannabis in Bris-. 
bane city centre on Monday. 

Mr Anthony Kniepp has 
been charged with possessing 
a dangerous drug, but after 
being remanded on bail he 
said foe “joint* bad been 
made from a legal herb.

Though you may not realise it, a lot of life 
assurance companies have shareholders. 

And like it or not, those shareholders will get 
a chunk of the profit that’s made from your 
money. They can get their teeth into as much as 
10%, so it could cost you thousands of pounds 
when your policy matures. 

At Scottish Amicable, we believe strongly 
that you should be the one who gains' from your

Mud-slinging Colorado 
race for Senate may 
keep the voters at home 


From Michael Binyon 
Denver 

_.S to Jgfaps are hoping, 
when President Reagan 

"'fi, tomorrow in an 
swtog the balance 
in one of the nation's closest 
S*™* *«s. for at least a brief 
re^ue from mud-slinging. 

_ For . neck-and-neck 
struggle between two local 
congressmen for the seat va- 
cated by Senator Gary Hart 
has degenerated into such 
vituperative name-calling that 
even the campaign activists 
are embarrassed. 

Each has offered a truce in 
the negative television adver- 
tising: each blames the other 
for rejecting th e terms; each is 
resigned to an increasingly 
bitter end to an already polar- 
ized campaign. 

Mr Tim wirth, aged 47, the 
Democratic contender, and 
Mr Ken Kramer, aged 44, his 
Republican opponent, have 
already spent around SIS 
million (£1.7 million) each to 
woo the uncommitted in a 
state of only three million 
people. Each is going after the 
middle ground and each ac- 
cuses the other of being an 
extremist “outside the 
mainstream'’. 

Both may be the losers 
because the polls show that 
people are so incensed by the 
reckless and often unsubstan- 
tiated accusations flying 
around they may refbse to 
vote at all. 

The two candidates, ideo- 
logically far apart, are both 
struggling for name recog- 
nition and attempting to 
poach on each other's tra- 
ditional territory. 

Mr Wirth. with a strong 
liberal voting record in his 12 
years in Congress, makes 
much of his tiscal conser- 
vatism. his support for de- 
fence and for many of 
President Reagan's foreign 
policies. He boasts endorse- 
ments from Mr Paul Nitze, 
President Reagan's aims con- 
trol adviser, from Denver 
businessmen, from prominent 
moderate Colorado Repub- 
licans. and even from a board 
member of the powerful and 
ultra-conservative National 
Rifle Association. 

Mr Kramer, an avowed 


US MID-TERM 
ELECTIONS 

^a3«s9s«^«sr:25w^5sa:sje?s:s:2s 

conservatives’ conservative, 
who opposes abortion and 
sanctions against South Africa 
and advocates spending up to 
$1,000 billion (£689 billion) 
on Star Wars, is seeking the 
support of the Hispanic 
minority, claims he is the 
candidate of women's rights 
and single parents, and cham- 
pions environmental issues. 

The Democrats accuse Mr 
Kramer of “a campaign of 
disinformation, misrepresent- 
ing his record and Tim 
Wirth's”. 

The Republicans contend 
that Mr Wirth is a hypocrite — 


USA f 

an extreme liberal in Congress 
who poses as a moderate 
centrist in Colorado. As a 
result both men — highly 
educated Harvard graduates — 
spend most of their time 
calling each other liars. 

Of course, there are big 
issues for Colorado on which 
both agree: cleaning up toxic 
waste, protecting Colorado's 
spectacular mountain en- 
vironment. helping the tour- 
ism and ski industry, getting 
Denver out of its current oil- 
induced slump, and curbing 
rising unemployment 

Ideology also bends conve- 
niently to pork-barrel politics. 
Mr Wirth, who had doubts 
about Star Wars, is not letting 
Mr Kramer remain alone in 
advocating huge strategic de- 
fence contracts for the space 
industries in Colorado. 

But so far the campaigns 
have only skirted these issues. 
Instead they have con- 
centrated on such things as Mr 
Kramers missing a key 
congressional vote while 


attending a fund-raising event, 
his alleged extremism, and Mr 
Wirth's supposed role in the 
disastrous break-up of the old 
telephone monopoly and his 
preference for the East Coast 
establishment at the expense 
of Colorado interests. 

Part of the shrillness lies in 
the difficulty for each side in 
finding and controlling a real 
issue. There are too many 
imponderables. Is Colorado, 
surrounded by conservative 
mountain states, moving right 
because of immigration and 
demography? Does the mem- 
ory of Gary Hart, who has 
largely kept out of the cam- 
paign, help or hurt Mr Wirth? 
Does Mr Kramer's aggressive 
manner compare well or badly 
with Mr Wirth's smooth 
charm and good looks? Will 
the overwhelming advantage 
of the Democratic candidate 
in the simultaneous gov- 
ernor's race — also between 
two newcomers — help the 
Wirth senate campaign? 

President Reagan, enor- 
mously popular with voters of 
all parties, may rise above the 
scrapping when he endorses 
Mr Kramer tomorrow. But 
even his visit is unlikely to 
haul the campaign out of the 
gutter. 

For Denver especially, 
proud of its recent transforma- 
tion from a raucous and 
unkempt city of cattle ranch- 
ers and prospectors into a 
sophisticated and gleaming 
regional centre, the campaign 
has been a sad embarrass- 
ment.

Machel black box offer to experts 


From Christopher Walker, Moscow 


The Soviet Union an- 
nounced yesterday that it had 
proposed to the Montreal- 
based International Civil Avi- 
ation Organization that it 
should send experts to witness 
the opening of die sealed flight 
recorders from the wrecked 
Tupolev 124 plane in which 
President Sam ora Machel of 
Mozambique was killed. 

Mr Gennady Gerasimov, 
the Kremlin's chief spokes- 
man, told a press conference 
that the invitation had already 
been forwarded to the ICAO’s 
headquarters. The Soviet Gov- 
ernment was reserving its 
position on the cause of the 
crash until investigators had 


finished their inquiry. 

No date was given for the 
inspection of the two black box 
recorders, which tape flight 
data and conversations on the 
flight deck. Mr Gerasimov 
said that the invitation to the 
independent experts had been 
extended by Moscow because 
South Africa felt that die word 
of its own officials would not 
be trusted. 

• Code needed: The Soviet 
Mack box flight data recorders 
can be read by any expert — 
provided they have die nec- 
essary code book (Our Air 
Correspondent writes). 

All Western nations use an 


identical code to decipher the 
dots and dashes which make 
np the constant stream of 
information being automati- 
cally recorded onto the Mack 
box's metal tapes. These codes 
show, for example, where the 
investigating officers should 
look for engine data or height. 
Each new item of information 
is given a special code word at 
the beginning of the recording 
to help the identification 
But the Russians ase dif- 
ferent codes. The electronic ! 
information on tire tape is just 
the same, but without the code 
book it would be difficult to 
know what the information 
related to. 


Stockholm - Two Lebanese 
refugees, refused permission

“safe base”, threw their son, 
aged five, from a second- 
storey window of the hostel at 
Uppsala where they were be-

The French Government 
has derided to ask tire sack to 
pay more for their health care, 
rather than raise state health

attempt to save £1 billion a

Spending on public health 
care is expected to total a 
record 323 billioa francs (£34 
milliou) this year, leaving the

a deficit of 5.6 billion francs, 
which would rise to 15^ 
billion francs next year if 
nothing woe done. 

Instead, M Philippe Segnin, 
tire Health and Social Services 
Minister, has derided to ask 
employer and mrion repre- 
sentatives, who jointly admin- 
ister Che insurance scheme, to 
carry out a series of cost- 
saving measures, including in- 
troducing charges for the first 
time for several hundred thou- 
sand people who formerly 
received free health care. 

Unlike the British, the av- 
erage Frenchman has to pay 
initially for health care, but is 
then usually reimbursed either 
in part or full by the health 
uHnrance scheme. 

A visit to a general prac- 
titioner, for example, normally 
costs 75 francs, of which 70 
per cent is reimbursed. Medi- 
cines and other pharmaceuti- 
cal products prescribed by the 
doctor are reimbursed at a rate 


From Diana Geddes, Paris 

of 70 per cent if considered 
essential for the patient's 
health, and at 40 per cent if 
not. 

However, certain categories 
of patients, suffering from one 
of a list of 25 particularly long 
and costly illnesses, are fully 
reimbursed for all their costs, 
whether or not they are related 
to the particular illness. 

The French Government 
has now derided to update the 
list, discarding some diseases, 
such as leprosy, and mdndiig 
new ones, such as Aids (ac- 
quired immune deficiency syn- 
drome), for a new total of 31 
“privileged^ Alnesses. 

If tiie Government's recom- 
mendations are accepted, pa- 
tients will from now on be able 
to daim fall rehnhnrsemeot 
for treatment only directly 
related to their principal long- 
term Alness. 

M Segnin said: “A diabetic 
will no longer be able to daim 
100 per cent of the cost of the 
treatment for a bead cokL" 

The Government is also 
p lanning to phase out what is 
knowH as tie “26th illness", 
which is not a specific illness 
at all. Bather it is a system 
under which anyone who faces 
accumulated medical costs of 
more than 80 francs a month 
after the normal reimburse- 
ment can have any supple- 
mentary costs totally paid for 
by the state. 


About 500,000 people cur- 
rently benefit from the system. 

In addition, the Government 
is planning to increase the cost 
to the patient of certain opera- 
tionSj and to increase the daily . 
hospital charge, first in- 
troduced by the previous 
Socialist government, from 23 
francs to 31 francs. 

In order to deter famines 
from using hospitals as a 
cheap form of old people's 
home, tire charge wfll be 
increased substantially to 
more than 70 francs a day for 
patients occupying a hospital 
bed Em more than 18 months 
or two years. 

The Government is also to 
begin charging postage for 
people darning reimburse- 
ment from then local health 
insurance office. 

Because of the high residual 
costs of public beattfa care far 
France, two-thirds of French 
people choose to take out a 
secondary private health in- 
surance, known as the “mn- 
tnelle”, to which they 
contribute at a basic rate of 1 
per cent of their salary, up to a 
salary ceiling of about £9,000 
a month, in return for getting 
all titeir resninaJ costs paid. 

Local auth o rity aid is usu- 
ally available for those who do 
not have supplementary msnr- 
ance and who cannot meet 
their medical Mils. 


Brussels (AP) — The Euro- Belgian confidence vote avoided 


• Brussels (AP) — The Euro- 
pean Community Commis- 
sion has proposed uniform 
safety standards for toys to 
reduce accidents. 

Power failure 

Dhaka (Reuter) - Bangla- 
desh has suspended plans for a 
nuclear power plant because it 
cannot raise funds. 


Brussels (Reuter) — Be- 
lgium's coalition Government 
avoided a parliamentary vote 
of confidence yesterday, giv- 
ing it breathing space to 
resolve a dispute which threat- 
ens its survival. 

Deputies voted 106 to 74 for 
an agenda for the day's busi- 
ness, omitting the expected 


confidence vote over the affair 
of a French-speaking mayor 
dismissed for failing to submit 
to a test of his Dutch. 

The centre-right Govern- 
ment has been working to 
limit the damage from a split 
along language lines over the 
dispute involving Mr Jose 


Happart, Mayor of the Fouron 
group of villages in the Flem- 
ish part of Belgium. 

After King Baudouin re- 
jected an oner by the Prime 
Minister, Mr Wufried Mar- 
tens, for the Government to 
resign, Dutch-speaking and 
French-speaking, ministers 
patched up an uneasy truce. 


Bonn and 
France are 
cautious on 
arms deals 

From John England : 

Bonn 

Herr Helmut KohL the 
Chancellor of West Germany 
and President Mitterrand of 
France ended a two-day 
Franco-German “cultural 
summit" in Frankfurt yes- 
terday on a decidedly 
uncultural note, speaking 
mainly about East-West disar- 
mament. 

They said at a joint press 
conference that any US-Soyiet 
agreement on the removal or 
American medium-range mis- 
siles from Europe must be 
balanced by a reduction there 
of the Soviet Union’s superior 
conventional forces. 

Herr Kohl said European 
security must not be un- 
coupled Grom that of the US 
and it should not be possible 
in future to fight ware in 
Europe. 

M Mitterrand said he was 
not against considering the 
“zero option”, but was waiting 
to hear of the context in which 
it would be placed. Earlier, he 
told a French television inter- 
viewer that discussion on it 
bad not yet gone far enough 
for France to adopt a firm 
attitude. 

At the press conference be 
said France, which had its 
own nuclear arsenal, believed 
the question must be viewed 
as pan of a military whole 
including short-range and 
strategic nuclear weapons and 
conventional forces. 

Herr Kohl added that 
France should participate in 
talks on conventional forces, 
as he had recommended to the 
Americans during his trip to 
Washington last week. The 
West German government be- 
lieved such talks could take 
place “under the roof* of the 
East-West conference on sec- 
urity and co-operation in 
Europe. 

The “cultural summit”, 
which was also attended by M 
Jacques Chirac, the French - 
Prime Minister, agreed a pack- . 
age of measures on Monday * 
aimed at deepening cultural; 
and educational links between - 
the two countries including r 
exchanges of school pupils, ^ 
students and apprentices and 
greater efforts to enequrage 
the learning of each other's 
languages. 

West to press 
human rights 
at Vienna talks 

Brussels — Balance between 
security issues and human' 
rights matters will be the key 
word for' the Western agenda 
at the' 35-nation review con- 
ference on security and co- 
operation in Europe due to 
convene in Vienna next weds 
(Frederick Borman writes). 

The need for agreemsrts on 
arms reductions will be 
pressed by the East Bloc 
countries, Mr Warrdn Zimm- 
ermans, the chief US delegate 
to the conference, said in 
Brussels yesterday, whereas 
the West will insist on compli- 
ance with human rights 
engagements.

Since then the festival has 
grown progressively and alar- 
mingly. This year’s pro- 
gramme has ■ expanded to 
some 200 feature films. It 
would be very hard, all the 
same; to pick out of them a 
dozen to compete with the 
1957 selection. Which is not 
so much a reflection upon the 
festival selectors (led a g ain 
this year by Derek Malcolm) 
as upon the state of the 
cinema. Leaving aside films 
unseen and unpredictable, a 
personal top-ten choice would 
be: 

The Sacrifice: Andrei Tar- 
kowsky’s visionary epic about 
a man faced with the prospect 
of the ul tima te catastrophe 
and summoning all his spir- 
itual forces to face it. Whether 
or not you claim' to under- 
stand it all and despite the 
slight of the Cannes Festival 
jury, this is the one undoubted 
classic film of the year.

account crfThfertse Martin, an 
extremely human young Car-

Down By Law: Jim Jarmusch 
follows Stranger than Para - 
dise with an idiosyncratic 
comedy about three inept 
gaol-breakers on the run in 
Bayou country. The star turn 
is Roberto Benigni, a well- 
known Italian director-co- 
median who graces his first 
picture abroad with a delirious 
line in broken English. 

A Girl of Good Family: One of 
tbe most arresting exhibits 
from the new Chinese cinema,

burgh FestivaL Set in 1949,' it 
tells the tragicomic tale of a

T he main curiosity 
surrounds the pre- 
mieres of wort by 
three major and very 
different British 
film-makers. Bill Douglas’s 
Comrades, many years in 
preparation and his first film 
since his memorable auto- 
biographical trilogy, explores 
virgin territory — the Tol- 
puddle Martyrs and what 
became of them after their 
transportation to Australia. 
Ken Russell’s Gothic promises 
an imaginative investigation, 
scripted by Stephen Volk, into 
an historic evening in 1816 
when Byron dined with the 
Shelleys and Mary was in- 
spired to write Frankenstein. 
Nipolas Roeg's Castaway is 
described as “a romantic tragi- 
comedy for our times’*, about 
a man and woman alone on a 
desert island. 

The muster of British films 
reaches a new high with more 
than 50 features, many made 
for television. They include 
films from Northern Ireland 
(Joe Mahon’s portrait of mid- 
dle-class Londonderry, The 
Best Man ) and from Eire

Everything comes in triplicate 
in this programme of musical 
theatre: three brief plays, a 
cast of three and three writers 
with different approaches to 
triangular relationships and 
the use of Edward McGuire's 
music to explore them. 

Marcella Evaristi's Trio 
(with strings), the final piece 
of the evening, is the only one 
, to deal with the play's musical 
dimension by incorporating it 
into the theme. A small ghi

art comes, symbolically, to

eign lang ua g e of music and to 
mai* it her own by teaching it 
in ajnore accessible form. 

. Uto slight, stylized story- 
line Vma ins very much on the 
sura?, but the appeal lies in 
Evarhfs ready witand use of 


rhythmic, often rhyming di- 
alogue to echo the musical 
theme, together with her 
understanding of the excru- 
ciating jealousies and parental 
embarrassment that can dog 
small girls’ lives, and also in 
Myra McFadyen's endearing 
performance. 

Marianne Carey’s Love 
Joan is. by contrast fer more 
conventional in structure, us- 
ing the music more as an 
atmospheric - backdrop. It 
shows a recent widow (Mela- 
nie O’Reilly) coming to terms 
with her mixed feelings of 
freedom, grief and guilt about 
an extramarital affair. It is 
interesting in its exploration 
of areas of self-deception and 
contradictory emotions, but 
the structure, a series of one- 
to-one encounters combined 
with monologues from Joan, 
begins to pall and produces 
repetitive patterns on the part 
of the east, not overcome by 
Michael Boyd's direction. 

Both he and (he cast are 
much more subtle and imagi- 
native in Tom McGrath’s 
Thanksgiving. The most com- 
plex of the plays, it eventually 
falls staon of its promise with a 
rather tome ending, but it is 


of dialect teaching and other 
post-Independence innova- 
tions. In other words, he to

has prodaced the Illiterate

It seems that Mr Rhone has 
difficulty in sqaariag his argu- 
ments vrith his personal sym- 
pathies. And the ptoy is at its 
most effective as an exu- 
berantly comic coUtskra be- 
tween a group of educational 
free-toaders all fighting for 
their own little patch of 
ground. As such, Yvonne 
Brewster's prod action offers 
lively performances from Paul

Malcolm Frederick.

constantly interesting, inter- 
weaving themes on a personal 
and broader level and it uses 
the music m a fescinating, 
almost frightening way. 

Set in America on Thanks- 
giving Day during the Iranian 
hostage crisis, it explores the 
relationship between Ben. six 
months away from his English 
wife and children, and Amy, 
an American also involved in 
a long-standing relationship. 
As the themes of indepen- 
dence. guilt and possessive^ 
ness become tangled up in 
Ben’s mind. McGrath weaves 
in McGuire's haunting music 
to highlight Ben's feelings, as 
the musicians eventually in- 
vade the stage. Though the 
play stops short it creates an 
eerie atmosphere, balanced by 
McGrath's playfully witty 
treatment of two of his themes 
— obsessive patriotism and 
the all-intrusive media - as a 
huge television set starts giv- 
ing orders and inviting per- 
sonal confession. It also 
produces the strongest perfor- 
mances from Robert Mc- 
Intosh. Melanie O’Reilly and 
Myra McFadyen.

Mud-slinging Colorado 
race for Senate may 
keep the voters at home 


From Michael Binyon 
Denver 

_.S to Jgfaps are hoping, 
when President Reagan 

"'fi, tomorrow in an 
swtog the balance 
in one of the nation's closest 
S*™* *«s. for at least a brief 
re^ue from mud-slinging. 

_ For . neck-and-neck 
struggle between two local 
congressmen for the seat va- 
cated by Senator Gary Hart 
has degenerated into such 
vituperative name-calling that 
even the campaign activists 
are embarrassed. 

Each has offered a truce in 
the negative television adver- 
tising: each blames the other 
for rejecting th e terms; each is 
resigned to an increasingly 
bitter end to an already polar- 
ized campaign. 

Mr Tim wirth, aged 47, the 
Democratic contender, and 
Mr Ken Kramer, aged 44, his 
Republican opponent, have 
already spent around SIS 
million (£1.7 million) each to 
woo the uncommitted in a 
state of only three million 
people. Each is going after the 
middle ground and each ac- 
cuses the other of being an 
extremist “outside the 
mainstream'’. 

Both may be the losers 
because the polls show that 
people are so incensed by the 
reckless and often unsubstan- 
tiated accusations flying 
around they may refbse to 
vote at all. 

The two candidates, ideo- 
logically far apart, are both 
struggling for name recog- 
nition and attempting to 
poach on each other's tra- 
ditional territory. 

Mr Wirth. with a strong 
liberal voting record in his 12 
years in Congress, makes 
much of his tiscal conser- 
vatism. his support for de- 
fence and for many of 
President Reagan's foreign 
policies. He boasts endorse- 
ments from Mr Paul Nitze, 
President Reagan's aims con- 
trol adviser, from Denver 
businessmen, from prominent 
moderate Colorado Repub- 
licans. and even from a board 
member of the powerful and 
ultra-conservative National 
Rifle Association. 

Mr Kramer, an avowed

conservatives’ conservative, 
who opposes abortion and 
sanctions against South Africa 
and advocates spending up to 
$1,000 billion (£689 billion) 
on Star Wars, is seeking the 
support of the Hispanic 
minority, claims he is the 
candidate of women's rights 
and single parents, and cham- 
pions environmental issues. 

The Democrats accuse Mr 
Kramer of “a campaign of 
disinformation, misrepresent- 
ing his record and Tim 
Wirth's”. 

The Republicans contend 
that Mr Wirth is a hypocrite — 


USA f 

an extreme liberal in Congress 
who poses as a moderate 
centrist in Colorado. As a 
result both men — highly 
educated Harvard graduates — 
spend most of their time 
calling each other liars. 

Of course, there are big 
issues for Colorado on which 
both agree: cleaning up toxic 
waste, protecting Colorado's 
spectacular mountain en- 
vironment. helping the tour- 
ism and ski industry, getting 
Denver out of its current oil- 
induced slump, and curbing 
rising unemployment 

Ideology also bends conve- 
niently to pork-barrel politics. 
Mr Wirth, who had doubts 
about Star Wars, is not letting 
Mr Kramer remain alone in 
advocating huge strategic de- 
fence contracts for the space 
industries in Colorado. 

But so far the campaigns 
have only skirted these issues. 
Instead they have con- 
centrated on such things as Mr 
Kramers missing a key 
congressional vote while 


attending a fund-raising event, 
his alleged extremism, and Mr 
Wirth's supposed role in the 
disastrous break-up of the old 
telephone monopoly and his 
preference for the East Coast 
establishment at the expense 
of Colorado interests. 

Part of the shrillness lies in 
the difficulty for each side in 
finding and controlling a real 
issue. There are too many 
imponderables. Is Colorado, 
surrounded by conservative 
mountain states, moving right 
because of immigration and 
demography? Does the mem- 
ory of Gary Hart, who has 
largely kept out of the cam- 
paign, help or hurt Mr Wirth? 
Does Mr Kramer's aggressive 
manner compare well or badly 
with Mr Wirth's smooth 
charm and good looks? Will 
the overwhelming advantage 
of the Democratic candidate 
in the simultaneous gov- 
ernor's race — also between 
two newcomers — help the 
Wirth senate campaign? 

President Reagan, enor- 
mously popular with voters of 
all parties, may rise above the 
scrapping when he endorses 
Mr Kramer tomorrow. But 
even his visit is unlikely to 
haul the campaign out of the 
gutter. 

For Denver especially, 
proud of its recent transforma- 
tion from a raucous and 
unkempt city of cattle ranch- 
ers and prospectors into a 
sophisticated and gleaming 
regional centre, the campaign 
has been a sad embarrass- 
ment.

Mr Tun Wirth: in a bruising 
Senate campaign 


Machel black box offer to experts 


From Christopher Walker, Moscow 


The Soviet Union an- 
nounced yesterday that it had 
proposed to the Montreal- 
based International Civil Avi- 
ation Organization that it 
should send experts to witness 
the opening of die sealed flight 
recorders from the wrecked 
Tupolev 124 plane in which 
President Sam ora Machel of 
Mozambique was killed. 

Mr Gennady Gerasimov, 
the Kremlin's chief spokes- 
man, told a press conference 
that the invitation had already 
been forwarded to the ICAO’s 
headquarters. The Soviet Gov- 
ernment was reserving its 
position on the cause of the 
crash until investigators had 


finished their inquiry. 

No date was given for the 
inspection of the two black box 
recorders, which tape flight 
data and conversations on the 
flight deck. Mr Gerasimov 
said that the invitation to the 
independent experts had been 
extended by Moscow because 
South Africa felt that die word 
of its own officials would not 
be trusted. 

• Code needed: The Soviet 
Mack box flight data recorders 
can be read by any expert — 
provided they have die nec- 
essary code book (Our Air 
Correspondent writes). 

All Western nations use an 


identical code to decipher the 
dots and dashes which make 
np the constant stream of 
information being automati- 
cally recorded onto the Mack 
box's metal tapes. These codes 
show, for example, where the 
investigating officers should 
look for engine data or height. 
Each new item of information 
is given a special code word at 
the beginning of the recording 
to help the identification 
But the Russians ase dif- 
ferent codes. The electronic ! 
information on tire tape is just 
the same, but without the code 
book it would be difficult to 
know what the information 
related to. 


Stockholm - Two Lebanese 
refugees, refused permission 
to stay in Sweden as part of a 
crackdown on suspected ter- 
rorists using the country as a 
“safe base”, threw their son, 
aged five, from a second- 
storey window of the hostel at 
Uppsala where they were be- 
ing held pending deportation 

The child, who may have 
been injured, was picked up by 
waiting relatives and driven 
off. Police are searching for 
him and say he will be 
deported with his parents 

Pollution plan 

Copenhagen — The Danish 
Government has unveiled a 
five-year, £830 million plan to 
stop pollution threatening the 
western Baltic. 

Tuna moves 

Canberra (Reuter) — The 
Soviet Union will continue to 
seek fishing agreements with 
South Pacific island nations 
despite the region's multi- 
million dollar tuna deal with 
the United States, a Soviet 
Embassy official said. 

Secrets act 

Kuala Lumpur (AFP) —The 
Government has proposed 
controversial amendments to 
Malaysia’s Official Secrets Act 
providing mandatory jail 
terras of up to 14 years. 


The French Government 
has derided to ask tire sack to 
pay more for their health care, 
rather than raise state health 
insurance contributions, in an 
attempt to save £1 billion a 
year in the debt-ridden public 
health service. 

Spending on public health 
care is expected to total a 
record 323 billioa francs (£34 
milliou) this year, leaving the 
health insurance scheme with 
a deficit of 5.6 billion francs, 
which would rise to 15^ 
billion francs next year if 
nothing woe done. 

Instead, M Philippe Segnin, 
tire Health and Social Services 
Minister, has derided to ask 
employer and mrion repre- 
sentatives, who jointly admin- 
ister Che insurance scheme, to 
carry out a series of cost- 
saving measures, including in- 
troducing charges for the first 
time for several hundred thou- 
sand people who formerly 
received free health care. 

Unlike the British, the av- 
erage Frenchman has to pay 
initially for health care, but is 
then usually reimbursed either 
in part or full by the health 
uHnrance scheme. 

A visit to a general prac- 
titioner, for example, normally 
costs 75 francs, of which 70 
per cent is reimbursed. Medi- 
cines and other pharmaceuti- 
cal products prescribed by the 
doctor are reimbursed at a rate 


From Diana Geddes, Paris 

of 70 per cent if considered 
essential for the patient's 
health, and at 40 per cent if 
not. 

However, certain categories 
of patients, suffering from one 
of a list of 25 particularly long 
and costly illnesses, are fully 
reimbursed for all their costs, 
whether or not they are related 
to the particular illness. 

The French Government 
has now derided to update the 
list, discarding some diseases, 
such as leprosy, and mdndiig 
new ones, such as Aids (ac- 
quired immune deficiency syn- 
drome), for a new total of 31 
“privileged^ Alnesses. 

If tiie Government's recom- 
mendations are accepted, pa- 
tients will from now on be able 
to daim fall rehnhnrsemeot 
for treatment only directly 
related to their principal long- 
term Alness. 

M Segnin said: “A diabetic 
will no longer be able to daim 
100 per cent of the cost of the 
treatment for a bead cokL" 

The Government is also 
p lanning to phase out what is 
knowH as tie “26th illness", 
which is not a specific illness 
at all. Bather it is a system 
under which anyone who faces 
accumulated medical costs of 
more than 80 francs a month 
after the normal reimburse- 
ment can have any supple- 
mentary costs totally paid for 
by the state. 


About 500,000 people cur- 
rently benefit from the system. 

In addition, the Government 
is planning to increase the cost 
to the patient of certain opera- 
tionSj and to increase the daily . 
hospital charge, first in- 
troduced by the previous 
Socialist government, from 23 
francs to 31 francs. 

In order to deter famines 
from using hospitals as a 
cheap form of old people's 
home, tire charge wfll be 
increased substantially to 
more than 70 francs a day for 
patients occupying a hospital 
bed Em more than 18 months 
or two years. 

The Government is also to 
begin charging postage for 
people darning reimburse- 
ment from then local health 
insurance office. 

Because of the high residual 
costs of public beattfa care far 
France, two-thirds of French 
people choose to take out a 
secondary private health in- 
surance, known as the “mn- 
tnelle”, to which they 
contribute at a basic rate of 1 
per cent of their salary, up to a 
salary ceiling of about £9,000 
a month, in return for getting 
all titeir resninaJ costs paid. 

Local auth o rity aid is usu- 
ally available for those who do 
not have supplementary msnr- 
ance and who cannot meet 
their medical Mils. 


Brussels (AP) — The Euro- Belgian confidence vote avoided 


• Brussels (AP) — The Euro- 
pean Community Commis- 
sion has proposed uniform 
safety standards for toys to 
reduce accidents. 

Power failure 

Dhaka (Reuter) - Bangla- 
desh has suspended plans for a 
nuclear power plant because it 
cannot raise funds. 


Brussels (Reuter) — Be- 
lgium's coalition Government 
avoided a parliamentary vote 
of confidence yesterday, giv- 
ing it breathing space to 
resolve a dispute which threat- 
ens its survival. 

Deputies voted 106 to 74 for 
an agenda for the day's busi- 
ness, omitting the expected 


confidence vote over the affair 
of a French-speaking mayor 
dismissed for failing to submit 
to a test of his Dutch. 

The centre-right Govern- 
ment has been working to 
limit the damage from a split 
along language lines over the 
dispute involving Mr Jose 


Happart, Mayor of the Fouron 
group of villages in the Flem- 
ish part of Belgium. 

After King Baudouin re- 
jected an oner by the Prime 
Minister, Mr Wufried Mar- 
tens, for the Government to 
resign, Dutch-speaking and 
French-speaking, ministers 
patched up an uneasy truce. 


Bonn and 
France are 
cautious on 
arms deals 

From John England : 

Bonn 

Herr Helmut KohL the 
Chancellor of West Germany 
and President Mitterrand of 
France ended a two-day 
Franco-German “cultural 
summit" in Frankfurt yes- 
terday on a decidedly 
uncultural note, speaking 
mainly about East-West disar- 
mament. 

They said at a joint press 
conference that any US-Soyiet 
agreement on the removal or 
American medium-range mis- 
siles from Europe must be 
balanced by a reduction there 
of the Soviet Union’s superior 
conventional forces. 

Herr Kohl said European 
security must not be un- 
coupled Grom that of the US 
and it should not be possible 
in future to fight ware in 
Europe. 

M Mitterrand said he was 
not against considering the 
“zero option”, but was waiting 
to hear of the context in which 
it would be placed. Earlier, he 
told a French television inter- 
viewer that discussion on it 
bad not yet gone far enough 
for France to adopt a firm 
attitude. 

At the press conference be 
said France, which had its 
own nuclear arsenal, believed 
the question must be viewed 
as pan of a military whole 
including short-range and 
strategic nuclear weapons and 
conventional forces. 

Herr Kohl added that 
France should participate in 
talks on conventional forces, 
as he had recommended to the 
Americans during his trip to 
Washington last week. The 
West German government be- 
lieved such talks could take 
place “under the roof* of the 
East-West conference on sec- 
urity and co-operation in 
Europe. 

The “cultural summit”, 
which was also attended by M 
Jacques Chirac, the French - 
Prime Minister, agreed a pack- . 
age of measures on Monday * 
aimed at deepening cultural; 
and educational links between - 
the two countries including r 
exchanges of school pupils, ^ 
students and apprentices and 
greater efforts to enequrage 
the learning of each other's 
languages. 

West to press 
human rights 
at Vienna talks 

Brussels — Balance between 
security issues and human' 
rights matters will be the key 
word for' the Western agenda 
at the' 35-nation review con- 
ference on security and co- 
operation in Europe due to 
convene in Vienna next weds 
(Frederick Borman writes). 

The need for agreemsrts on 
arms reductions will be 
pressed by the East Bloc 
countries, Mr Warrdn Zimm- 
ermans, the chief US delegate 
to the conference, said in 
Brussels yesterday, whereas 
the West will insist on compli- 
ance with human rights 
engagements.

help? Should society wait until a crime is 
committed — or someone dies — before it 
takes action? Maijorie Wallace investigates 


Michelle is a beautiful 25-year-old 
girl, well-educated, and much loved 
by her family. Her father, Brian, is a 
professional man in a north London 
practice. Her younger brother; Rich- 
ard. is a student Her mother, 
Sheila, who is extremely close to her 
daughter, keeps house for the 
family. 

But Michelle is not allowed to 
visit In feet the family have set her 
up in a flat of her own and taken out 
an injunction to keep her away. For 
her dependence on her mother is so 
strong that she can live neither with 
her nor without her. Michelle has 
assaulted Sheila on several occa- 
sions, hurting her quite badly. 

Brian, and Sheila are caught in a 
tragic double bind: the more they 
try to help their daughter, the more 
helpless they become. Doctors, 
psychiatrists and counsellors advise 
them that they must sever contact 
with Michelle, while neighbours, 
police, even complete strangers who 
find her in distress, accuse them of 
neglect and beg them to take her 
home. 

Sheila now spends bleak days and 
nights agonizing over what has 
happened since Michelle first began 
to act strangely eight years ago. She 
dreads the sound of the telephone, 
knowing it will be another cry for 
help from the exiled, tormented girl, 
so the family uses an answering 
machine to intercept the calls. 
Earlier this month Brian was up 
early and played back the tape. 

“Dad, it's me. I don’t feel very 
well. I don't know what to do. I've 
gone insane and everything. I need 
you and Mum very badly. Tell me 
what to do. I warn to come home. 
You’ve got to pick me up straight . 
away.” It was Michelle's usual kind .. 
of message - anguish mixed with 
threat and manipulation. A second 
message followed, more pathetic 
than the first. *Tm not crying or 
anything. I’m just a bit worried. I 
can't carry on.” 

An hour later, while Brian was 
dressing upstairs, there was a crash 
of splintering glass. He ran down to 
find Michelle climbing in through 
the shattered living room window. 
Richard, who was breakfasting 
downstairs, guessed what would 
happen and rushed upstairs to 
protect his mother by locking her in 
her bedroom. Sheila rang the police. 

Michelle calmed down, made 
herself a cup of tea and went to look 
at her old room, now sad and 
empty, because her bed and all her 
possessions were transferred to the 
flat. A few minutes later the police 
arrived and took her to Hendon 
Magistrates’ Court to be bound over 
to keep the peace. Brian knew she 
would be released and sent lack to 
the fiat, just as depressed as before 
and without receiving the help she 
needed. In despair, he derided to 
apply for a summons for criminal 
damage.' 

“It's a terrible thing to take out a 
summons against the child you love 
with all your heart-” he said. “But 
she has been in and out of hospital 
for seven years. . No treatment 
worked. She is getting no medical 
treatment now. We need help.” 

.As he pleaded with the mag- 


istrates in one of the court rooms, 
Brian could hear his daughter’s 
screams resounding from the cells. 
But his efforts proved unnecessary. 
Michelle refused to agree .to the 
terms of being bound over and was 
sentenced to three weeks' imprison- 
ment in Holloway. 

Two weeks ago, she was released. 
The prison psychiatrist Dr Edgar 
Unwin, told iheparems that he did 
not find her sufficiently ill to make 
an order to send her to hospital 
compulsorily, and because throwing 
a brick through a window was not a 
serious offence, they could not 
detain her any longer. Arrange- 
ments were made for her to go to 
Shenley Psychiatric Hospital, 
Hertfordshire, but the staff were 
reluctant to have her back (she had 
taken herself in and out of there 
three times in the previous month). 
On the morning of her release from 
prison, the family were told'thai a 
mistake had been made and no bed 
was available at the hospital. 

So within hours Michelle, carry- 
ing her suitcase, was back outside 
her parents' house shouting, and 
banging on the door. The onslaught 
became more furious. “I'm your 
daughter. You must let me in." she 
screamed. 

“At first she didn't know we were 
there," Sheila says. “We park our 
cars, around the corner and hide - 
when she comes. Then everything 
went quiet and I thought she had 
left Then 1 heard a Tetter come 
through and crept to pick it up. My 
eyes met hers through the letter 
box.” When’ she realized thai her 
mother would not open the door, 
Michelle rushed into the road and 
lay down. Sheila and Brian, know- 
ing that they could not help, had to 
watch from a window as the cars 
swerved round her. She was dragged 
back by passers-by and after the 
police arrived, she wandered away, 
a forlorn figure. 

“I just longed to run out and hug 
her." Sheila says. “But she would 
only attack me again.” 

Last week Brian tried to break the 
stalemate by invoking a summons 
for breach of the injunction on 
Michelle returning home. But the 
local social services intervened, 
threatening to withdraw offers of

help in financing a place in a hostel 
and closing their books on the 
family. “We had no alternative but 
to forget it," Sheila says. “The social 
worker condemned me for trying to 
get my daughter into Holloway. 
They don't realize how desperate we 
are. It is our only chance of getting 
medical reports.” 

Michelle was a slight, shy girl of 
17 when she first showed signs of 
mental instability. “We were having 
a family Sunday lunch.” recalls 
Sheila. “Michelle ran upstairs to her 
room, screaming with a pain iii her 
head. She was breathing fast and 
looked as though she were in a fit 
We called a doctor who sedated 
her ” From then on Michelle be- 
haved strangely, sometimes 
haranguing her mother and at other 
times following her around like a 
frightened lost child. “Sometimes 1 
would find her curled in a corner of 
the room like an embryo,” Sheila 
says. “ 'Mummy, mummy, do you 
love me? 1 She would ask again and 
again but when I reassured her she 
would kick and punch me.” 

Michelle was taken to a series bf- 
psychiatrists. each referring her on 
to a colleague. , and she became a 
patient in- several psychiatric hos- 
pitals. She has been diagnosed 
variously as suffering from 
“endogenous depression”, “phobic 
anxiety", “identity crisis” and “epi- 
sodic discomror. In the last eight 
years she has been treated with anti- 
psychotic drugs, anti-depressants, 
and electric shock therapy. 

In desperation her parents ar- 
ranged private clinics, but she

would always run away and no one 
was prepared to detain her. “We 
couldn't drive her back because she 
would try and throw herself out of 
the car or grab the steering wheel,” 
says Brian. “We had to pay for 
private ambulances to take her back 
and then, sometimes jn a few hours, 
'She would be out again, ringing us 
from some station.” 

In February 1984. Michelle was 
admitted under a six months hos- 
pital order to Spyways adolescent 
unit for behaviour modification. 
Even Spyways (which was later 
closed for its use of “controversial 
methods”) made little impression. 
By the end of the "year, she was 
admitted to the Bethlem Royal 
Hospital near Beckenham. Kent, 
and was diagnosed and treated as a 
schizophrenic. Michelle showed no 
change and her behaviour on week- 


THE HOLE IN BRITAIN’S SAFETY NET 


The professionals offer little hope 
for Midielle and her family. She 
foils between all the labels and 
therefore slips through the medical 
and legal constraints. She is not 
suffering from a recognized mental 
Alness, is not mad enough to 
warrant sectioning to hospital, nor 
has she committed any crane. 

“She is in grave danger to hersetf 
and others at this time,” says 
Henry Meyer, a retired menial 
welfare officer who is befriending 
the family. 

Hospitals will not admit her 
because they do not Uke disruptive 
patients. One psychiatrist told me 
that, since she is likely to commit 
suicide, his limited time 1$ better 
spent on more treatable cases. 
Social workers have to choose in 



Happier times: Michelle and Sheila 
whom to invest resources. While 
she is roaming aronnd, there fa no 
one who can find, let atone help her. 
She needs to be contained. 

“Every psychiatrist sees a num- 
ber of people like titis,” says 
Anthony Clare, Professor of 
Psychiatry at St Bartholomew's 


Hospital. “They are not suitable 
for hospital or prison. They are 
very unhappy, self-destructive peo- 
ple. The only comfort is that as 
they grow older, the drive depletes 
and by the time they are 40 years 
old, they will settle down.” 

Robert Blnglass, Professor of 
Forensic Psychiatry at Birming- 
ham University, fa also pessimistic. 
“Society has done nothing for 
people who do not fit the 
categories,” he says. “It all comes 
down to resources. Many of them 
would be better off in small highly 
staffed specialist units. The nearest 
we have are the medium secure 
units, but they are only now being 
built It is a fine balance between 


the tibettyof the individual and the 
protection'^’ the public.” 


ends at home became even more 
disturbed. “We couldn't hold a 
rational conversation with her,” 
Sheila says. “If you took her 
shopping or to a 'restaurant she 
would make a scene and have to be 
removed." 

Just before Christinas last year, 
Barnet General Hospital, where 
Michelle was now a patient, with- 
drew medication and she seemed to 
improve. In a final bid for normal 
life. Michelle and her parents signed 
a “contract” of reasonable behav- 
iour and she returned home. But 
within days, the contract was bro- 
ken and this time it was Sheila who 
was taken to hospital in a state of 
collapse. On Christmas Day Mi- 
chelle was made to move into a flat 
of her own. 

Her parents know that she cannot 
cope. She has no friends and her 
illness makes her unable to attend 
out-patients or accept help. Four 
general practitioners have already 
banned her from their lists and at 
the end of this week, she is being 
rejected again. “So for we have been 
unable to help her in a constructive 
and meaningful way,” they wrote to 
her parents, “and we are not very 
optimistic about our ability to do so 
in the future." All the hospitals in 
north London have refused to 
readmit her. Three hostel places 
have fallen through because of her 
behaviour. 

“There is nowhere for her to go.” 
her father says. “We bought her this 
flat but she pesters the neighbours 
and the manager is asking me to 
evict her.” 

The social services, with their 
emphasis on civil liberties, have 
taken little notice of the parents' 
plight. “When we saw her, Michelle 
was not a danger to herself or others 
in our presence,” they wrote, 
explaining their reluctance to sec- 
tion her to hospital. 

Sheila is bitter about the lack of 
compassion from the doctors and 
social workers. She feels their 
advice has only damaged the family. 
“They tell us to cut her off, that she 
is drowning and will pull us down 
with her. But we can’t have a 


moment of pleasure without feeling 
guilty, knowing she is in despair.” 


It is Michelle's own protection 
that Brian and Sheila are seeking. 
“The Holloway psychiatrist told us 
they could provide no further 
medical help until Michelle com- 
mits a serious crime — which he 
thinks is quite on the cards.” Brian 
says. “All we can do, they say, is 
waiL" 


A snip — for brave 
little soldiers 


I n a quiet north London 
side-street, where the 
October sun was shifting 
the last of the morning shad- 
ows. a young man wearing a 
suede jacket and carrying a 
large plastic briefcase paused 
outside the open door of a 


The Marie Slopes

folly he sauntered past, 
dealy. after going only a few 
yards, he turned and shot 
back through the door. 

Minutes later, his jacket 
was on a hanger, his briefcase 
was on the floor, and he was 
spread out on a table in only 
bis shirt and socks. In a voice 
that held only the faintest 
tremble, he said: “I’m not 
really used to strangers play- 
ing with my bits and pieces.” 

Wasn't he a brave little 
soldier? Indeed he was. But 
then so are all the men who 
attend the vasectomy session 
at the Marie Slopes clinic. It 
is 10 years since the first 
quaking male stepped 
through the door. All those 
who enter there may not 
abandon hope, it is true, but 
they certainly resign all active 
interest in further extension 
of the human race. 

“We’ve got two children 
and don’t want any more.” 
the jacket man said. He had 
his hands locked behind his 
head and his gaze nailed to 
the ceiling. 

“Quite right,” said Dr Tim 
Black. “It'll only take a 
minute . . . Had it done my- 
self. . . Little injection, stings 
a bit . . . In catering, are 
you?" 

Verbal analgesics. Dr Black 
calls it, and n works. While 
the patient chats about cater- 
ing, the doctor works on the 
bits and pieces displayed 
through a hole in a sheet of 
blue tissue paper. He has got 
the entire procedure down to 
four minutes, a feat which for 
speed and efficiency rivals a 
pit-stop wheel change. 

“There.” The doctor 
picked up what looked like a 
large red plastic pepper-pot 
and sprinkled the area with 
talc. “Avoid heavy liftihg, but 
all the sex and drink you 
like.” Sex and drink and no 
heavy lifting? It sounds like a 
male definition of paradise. 

In the waiting-room, before 
and afters mingle. One by one 
the pale-faced recruits be- 
come four-minute veterans, 
their feces glowing with scar- 
let beams of triumph. The 
atmosphere is that intoxicat- 
ing mix of fading apprehen- 
sion. growing relief and 
boyish self-congratulation 
that you might find at the end 
of an O level physics exam: it 
was hell, boys, but we did it

than wait for months — or 
even years — for the NHS. In 
some inscrutable way. re- 
action to the clinics varies 
geographically. In Spain, 
home of Hemingway's 
cojones. it is very successful. 
In Scotland, they had to pack 
up for want of clients. 

The customers have 
changed in the last decade. At 
first the dinics expected 
hordes of middle-class lib-; 
ends, the whale-savers and 
cress-eaters who have the * 
capacity io worry about 
things like the future of 
mankind. Instead they got ’ 
lough working-class blokes. 


T hey were men who had 
had the responsibility 
for organizing contra- 
ception and they wanted to 
put it on a permanent basis. 
The vasectomy clinics have 
been particularly successful 
with men who were confident 
of their masculinity - fire- 
men. policemen. Now the 
clients cover the whole range: 
in the waiting room, side by 
side, they read share prices 
and football results, but they 
tell the same son of stories 
with the same self-mocking 
humour. 

The tanned young geolo- 
gist. with “I'd Rather Be In . 
Tunisia” on his T-shirt, said 



A nd why not? Women 
may laugh at these 
heroics, I know, but 
they're used to it- To them, 
it’s just so much plumbing 
work. It isn't pure medicine 
either what we're dealing 
with here is masculinity. This 
morning, a computer man, an 
American professor, a Scots 
geologist on leave from the 
Far East, a baker and a 
primer, had conquered prim- 
itivism and done it. All 
married, all with children. 
Over coffee, they found corn- 
ton in old jokes. 

“I've seen vets do it when I 
worked on a farm.” said the 
Scot 

“Hope I don’t get wrinkles 
like Parkinson.” said one. 

“Oh, I don’t know.” some- 
one replied. “I wouldn't mind 
if I could have his money." 

At their 1 8 centres through- 
out the country, the Marie 
Slopes clinics have operated 
on 40,000 men in the last 10 
years. Many men. with the 
decision made, would rather

DIARY 


Galloway 
at bay 

War on Want staff, 1 learn, have 
been unhappy for months about 
their director. George Galloway, 
who was accused yesterday of 
using charity funds to foster an 
expensive lifestyle and further his 
career as a Labour politician. So 
disturbed were they about the way 
that last year’s W o W council 
elections were handled that they 
insisted that the Electoral Reform 
Society should be brought in to 
oversee last month’s elections. 
Galloway strongly objected in a 
written memorandum, which he

T he resignation at the 
United Nations on Mon- 
day of the Ethiopian 
Foreign Minister. Goshu 
Wolde, from a govern- 
ment “whose shortsighted and 
rigidly doctrinaire policies are 
leading the country and the people 
into misery and destruction” is the 
fourth major defection from that 
regime within the past 1 2 months. 

It comes almost a year to the 
day since Dawit Wolde Giorgis, 
the man who headed Ethiopia s 
internal relief agency during the 
worst mouths of the African 
famine, left Addis Ababa on a 
fund-raising tour. While he was 
abroad he learned that he had 
been denounced by pro-Soviet 
members of the Politburo and lhat 
bis house had been ransacked by 
security police. He applied to the 
United States for political asylum. 
Later his deputy, Berhane De- 
ressa, and the Ethiopian ambas- 
sador to France, Getachew Kibret, 
followed suit. 

Since then Dawit has lived 
quietly in New Jersey, refusing 
almost all requests for interviews. 
But recently he took part in an 
unpublicized seminar with an 
influential but low-profile private 
body, the East-West Round Table 
Discussion Group in New York. 
During the seminar, and after- 
wards in conversation with The 
Times, he made striking revela- 
tions about the working of the 
government of the Ethiopian lead- 
er, Colonel Mengistu, who has 
asked the West this year for 
900.000 tons of food aid — more 
than the combined requests of all 
the other sub-Sahelian countries, 
including Sudan, Africa’s largest 
nation. 

Aid of that magnitude. Dawit' 
suggests, is what is keeping the 
regime of Colonel Mengistu in 
power. “Ironically,” Dawit says, 
“the Western humanitarian assis- 
tance not only saved millions of 
starving people, but it also saved 
Mengistu and his regime. There is 
no doubt in my mind lhat without 
this help there would have been a 
bloody chaos which would have 
resulted in the removal of 
Mengistu and his henchmen.” 

If one believes Dawit is able to 
separate an element of wishful 
thinking from his political analy- 
sis. then Mengistu’s hold on power 
could be more tenuous than would 
appear to the casual visitor to 
Ethiopia, who sees only the intru- 
sive activity of the security police 
within the capital and of the party 
cadres in the countryside. 

"There comes a time when a 
population has endured so much 
suffering at the hands of its 
government that it feels it has 
nothing to lose by overturning the 
government. That point has now 
been reached in Ethiopia,” Dawit 
says. 

He was formerly a senior officer 
in the Ethiopian army. He has 
known the Ethiopian leader since 
the revolution in 1974 which 
overthrew Emperor Haile Selassie. 
Mengistu made him governor of 
the northern province of Eritrea 
(where secessionist rebels have 
been waging war against the Addis 
government for 23 years). 

Since 1974, he says, Mengistu 
has changed from a leader who 
embodied the revolutionary sense 
of egalitarianism and nationalism 
into “a disorientated demagogue 
who has made Ethiopia an appen- 
dage of the Soviet Union” and 
who governs die nation according 
to "subjective fantasies.” 

“He is now a virtual dictator 
and his decisions are not chal- 
lenged . . . He's shrewd and dear 
about his personal objectives. He 
is very swift and cruel when bis 
power is threatened, as when he 
eliminated 1 4 ofhis colleagues. He 
convened a meeting of the stand- 
ing committee of the military 
council and walked out in the 
middle of the discussion. His 
soldiers came in and massacred 
everybody. 

“At a convenient time he makes 
scapegoats of the people who have 


implemented his decisions, and aD 
who participate are eliminated. 
Mengistu himself came up with a 
list of 1,000 people to be elimi- 
nated 

"People have thus stopped tell- 
ing him the truth. They tdl him 
what they think will please him. 
He is detached from reality and 
lives in a world created by his 
illusions.” 

That much is demonstrated by 
Mengistu’s attitude to issues as 
varied as the war in Eritrea, which 
he still thinks — unrealistically — 
can be settled by force, and the 
vast outpouring of Western aid 
which be believes was nothing 
more than a plot by tbe West to 
undermine the Ethiopian revolu- 
tion. 

“Just before I left Ethiopia,” 
Dawit says, “I was summoned by 
the Politburo to testify to the 
activities of my agency.” At the 
time, he was director of tbe highly 
respected Relief and Rehabilita- 
tion Commission (RRQ which 
was responsible for monitoring 
agricultural production, issuing 
crop-failure warnings and making 
appeals to Western donor coun- 
tries. He also supervised the 
activities of the 42 voluntary 
agencies which came to work in 
the country as a result of tbe 
famine in which he estimates nine 
million people would have died 
but for the help of tbe inter- 
national community. 

A ccording to Dawit: 
“The subject was the 
political cost of the 
drought During nine 
hours of discussion the 
human problems were not seen as 
the most important issue. Instead, 
what was seen as the most 
disturbing issue was how the 
drought was being used by West- 
ern imperialism to destabilize the 
Ethiopian revolution. 

“1 and my agency were accused 
of collaborating with Western 
agents.” 

The callousness shown by the 
Mengistu regime towards its own 
population was evident in the 
elaborate celebrations for the 
tenth anniversary of the 1974 
revolution. “The government me- 
dia were making every effort to 
hide the famine and divert atten- 
tion to tbe glorification ofideolqgy 
and the new era of prosperity 
under Marxism. 

“At the time the ceremony was- 
being conducted, thousands were 
dying [from the famine] every day, 
thousands had abandoned their 
homes in search of food and 
shelter, or had walked all the way 
from the northern pan of Ethiopia 
to the gates of Addis Ababa. 


“My agency was instructed to 
stop them. The police were sent to 
make a human fence around 
Addis Ababa to make sure none of 
these people could enter, the dty 
and spoil the show.” When he 
later made an unauthorized 
speech to the United Nations, 
appealing for aid, Dawit claims be 
was reprimanded by the Ethiopian 
leader. 

But Mengistu soon came to see 
how he could turn the famine to 
his advantage. Though his own 
interest in the starving was limited 
to two 1 5-minute stops he made to 
have his photograph taken with 
famine victims at Ban and 
Mekele, he saw that the famine 
could be used to finance mecha- 
nisms of social control which 
would promote the growth of 
socialism. 

In October and November 1984 
the RRC initiated a resettlement 
programme. “Thousands had per- 
ished before reaching shelters and 
distribution centres,” Dawit says. 
“Mengistu wanted to take political 
advantage of this situation and 
launched a massive resettlement 
programme involving 1.5 million 
people. He believed that this was 
an opportune moment to establish 
a model collective forming system 
and it was easier to expedite this 
policy with helpless people who 
were in no situation to put up any 
resistance. 

“There were many volunteers in 
the initial phase, but their number 
was no way near the target that 
Mengistu has established. There- 
fore. force tad to be used . . .” 

The principle of resettling peo- 
ple from overcrowded areas to 
more fertile ones is. according to 
Dawit sound. But it requires 
planning, resources and an edu- 
cated and willing population. “If 
you add the factor of force it is 
bound to foil.” 

Dawit also condemns as ill- 
conceived tbe Mengistu policy of 
“villagization” which has already 
moved three million peasants — 
the target is 20 million — from 
their scattered rural homes into 
large model villages. 

Dawit has little doubt that such 
ambitious programmes could not 
have been financed without for- 
eign aid (both directly and in- 
directly, in the form of massive 
port fees levied on donations of 
foreign food) yet he does not agree 
with suggestions that aid should 
be stopped. “There should be 
other ways of influencing the 
situation inside Ethiopia.” 

The first requirement is for a 
change of attitude on the part of 
the West “The world has yet to 
wake up to the political realities of 








Eurotunnellers stumble in the PR battle 


On the surface it has been a simple 
tale of City institutions being 
unwilling to invest in a high-risk 
pioneering project whose long- 
term returns are at best only 
guesstimates. But beneath the 
surface the tale of the Channel 
tunnel consortium's struggle to 
raise even an initial £206 million 
towards the ultimate cost of £4.7 
billion is one of political intrigue 
and a fierce struggle between those 
who are determined that this 
'‘monument to Thatcherism” be 
built and those — including some 
Conservatives — who are deter- 
mined it shall not be. 

Leading the former group is, of 
course. Mrs Thatcher herself, who 
along with a couple of government 
departments stands accused of 
exerting covert pressure last week- 
end on financial institutions to 
invest in EurotunneL These 
charges are strenuously denied by 
Downing Street, which insists that 
the tunnel is entirely a matter for 
the private sector and simply will 
not be built if the money is not 
forthcoming. Mrs Thatcher does 
believe, however, that the tunnel 
could be one of the great engineer- 
ing projects of the 20th century 
and its non-appearance would be a 
serious blow to her belief that 
what would once have been done 
bv public money can be achieved 
hv private investment. 


Ranged against the tunnel is a 
mixture of pressure groups includ- 
ing ferry companies, port authori- 
ties. MPs and trade unions, all of 
whom would lose materially from 
the tunnel's construction and who 
have been fighting a formidable 
behind-the-scenes campaign to 
undermine City confidence in iL 

Eurotunnel has been com- 
prehensively outmanoeuvred on 
the public-relations front. One 
figure rarely absent from the 
sittings of the Commons select 
committee on the Channel Tunnel 
Bill has been the communications 
director of Sea Containers, the 
parent company of James Sher- 
wood’s Sealink Femes which itself 
bid unsucessfully for the tunnel 
project and is now determined to 
stop iL 

Jonathan Aitken. the anti-tun- 
nel Tory - MP for Thanet South, 
popped up in the Commons on 
Monday to deliver a few headline- 
catch i ng quotes about "min isierial 
shenanigans” and "a busted 
flush”. Transport union officials 
give private briefings saying they 
will boycott the tunnel when built 
Unenthusiastic analysts’ reports 
on the tunnel's investment poten- 
tial are acquired and quickly 
distributed. 

Particular play is made of the 
safetv factor. Videos are circulated 


which quote experts wbo allege 
fire risks from people being al- 
lowed to drive through the tunnel 
in their cars. 

Press com raent may have only a 
limited impact on the decisions of 
potential investors. But irrespec- 
tive of the project’s merits or 
demerits. Eurotunnel's PR failure 
may yet cost it the project 

The key question for the hard- 
nosed fund managers in the City 
of London has always been 
whether the likely financial re- 
turns on the project compensate 
for the risks. The judgement of the 
past few weeks has clearly been 
that they do not Compared, for 
instance, with the attractions of 
many of the government's own 
privatization offers. Eurotunnel 
has not been enticing. 

About 50 British institutions 
were needed to commit a total of 
£70 million — not the sort of 
amount to make the average fund 
manager blink. But ever since the 
winning project was announced, 
sentiment has slowly ebbed away. 
Investors have had lo evaluate 
forecasts that project dividends 
payable as far ahead as the year 
2041 on a whole host of assump- 
tions about costs and revenues, 
interest and inflation rates, and 
the level of traffic. Add to this the 
usual chances of cost over-runs for 
such a large project and the 


political risks of a delay in the 
ratification of the meaty, and tbe 
level of uncertainty is consid- 
erable. 

Although this first stage does 
not involve enormous sums, it is 
here that these doubts must be 
overcome. The consortium mem- 
bers themselves have put up 
£46 million but. assuming the 
£206 million placing scrapes 
borne by the deadline of 2pm 
today, the bulk of tbe equity 
investment will be raised through 
a £748 million public dare offer 
next summer prior to a stock- 
market flotation. 

The financial plans call for 
stares to be ottered for sale next 
year at a price some 42 per cent 
higher than today’s placing price. 
Thai should, in theory, mean a 
tidy little profit for the .early 
investors — but even this bas not 
proved a great enough short-term 
incentive: Some analysts suggest 
that a figure nearer 30 per cent 
would have been appropriate. 

There are still some doubts 
about whether such a project, with 
its widespread spin-offs for tbe 
economy as a whole, was ever a 
suitable vehicle for private fi- 
nance.

The realities of 
political unity 


Ethiopia. The country is ravaged 
by civil war. The government has 
little or' no control over most of 
the countryside- Thousands of 
people have been summarily exe- 
cuted. or have disappeared, or rot 
in prison. Any measure taken in 
the name of the ideology of the 
revolution is justified. 

“After 12 years of sacrifice the 
people find themselves in a worse 
situation than under the previous 
regime. 1 cannot understand the 
indifference of the West in the 
presence of this violation of 
fundamental human rights. 

“What we require from the 
West isa firm, consistent policy in 
denouncing the policies of this 
government. And then can come 
specific measures to bring about 
change.” 

H e rules out overt mill-. 

lary assistance from 
the United States and 
bints at economic 
sanctions, though he is 
vague on details. But what ts dear 
enough is that Dawit Wolde 
Giorgis envisages a major role for 
himself in the organized and 
united opposition he hopes tbe 
West will sponsor. 

One cannot help but feel that 
there is an element of whistling in 
ibe dark in all this. The population 
of Ethiopia, along with the libera- 
tion movements of tbe Eritrean, 
Ttgrean, Oromo and other rebels, 
may feel it is time that Colonel 
Mengistu went, but the generally 
accepted reality is that be will stay 
in power as tong as the army is 
behind him. 

“At the moment the military is 
intricately linked with the Soviets, 
so it would be difficult to bring : 
about any rebellion,” Dawit ad- 
mits. “Then there are tbe different 
security organizations: special sec- 
urity, public security, military 
security, party security and many 
other security mechanisms winch 
we don’t hear about They don’t 
get along together. They're not 
supposed to. They are supposed to 
provide checks and balances and 
all have channels direct to the 
head of state.” 

According to Dawit the 
Mengistu regime is now firmly 
committed to a pro-Soviet pos- 
ition. “He wants to build a 
personality cult, in the image of 
North Korea’s leader, Kim II 1 
Sung, whom he greatly admires. ! 
His decision to stick to Marxist 
ideology is not the result of any 
intellectual analysis or political 
conviction but because it is the 
only system that can give him the 
power to do whatever he likes.” 

The joint objectives of the 
USSR and the Mengistu govern- 
ment are to establish Ethiopia as 
the first fully communist country 
in Africa, by restructuring the 
social fabric and creating a 
regimented and controlled society. 
The second objective is then to 
assume leadership of the com- 
munist movement in Africa. 

“I have heard from the Soviet 
ambassador,” Dawit continues, 
“that they disapprove of some of 
the policies Mengistu is im- 
plementing — not because the 
policies are not right, but because 
they are too hasty. The Soviet 
strategy m Africa is to have a 
degree of success first in Ethiopia 
as an example to lhe rest.” 

A botched job in Ethiopia could 
thus have wider consequences. 
But despite such tactical disagree- 
ments, the Soviets “are basically 
satisfied with Mengistu. A few 
years ago he was looked upon as a 
maverick. They thought be might 
change his mind. But now he has 
established tbe party down to 
grassroots level his alignment with 
the Soviet Union is irreversible.” 

C TOMORROW ) 

The vast human 
tragedy of 
Mengistu’s 
‘villagization’ policy 


Perhaps the oddest contortion 
ever urged on the True Brit is to 
"keep a stiff upper lip. and keep 
smiling.” Alliance politicians have 
been doing it permanently for the 
past month. However, we neither 
expect nor deserve much sym- 
pathy for the predicament we got 
ourselves into over defence. 

But the Liberal defence angst 
has shed light on a real dilemma of. 
representative democracy. Tbe 
electorate appears to want three 
conflicting things of its politics: 
strong leadership, united parties, 
and politicians who fight for what 
thev believe. “Yes. of course 
David Steel is very much in 
charge.” "The narrow vote was 
simply an expression of our 
concern about some aspects of the 
overall package: the party is of 
course totally united behind its 
main thrust.” “I’ve put down a 
marker for the future. I’ve no 
intention of rocking the boat.” A0 
expressions that typically follow a 
conference debate that leaves the 
tall looking like Marat’s jacuzzL 

All of this ensures that when, as 
at the recent Liberal assembly, it 
comes unsnick, no amount of 
heavy-duty flock wallpaper can 
cover the cracks. Painstakingly we 
have bad to think more, care more 
and confer more. But we still have 
a tot of exposition to do on the 
nature of Alliance policy-making 
and presentation. 

Tbe key difficulty stems from 
the Liberal and Social Democratic 
parties’ correct decision to favour 
unity rather than uniformity. Our 
electoral system encourages mass 
parties and also requires pos- 
session of tbe “party ticket” for 
success at the polls. Consequently 
the parties are too large to be 
homogeneous, and produce a 
series of “tendencies” or “ginger 
groups” while still proclaiming 
unity. They have uniformity, in 
the sense of a single parly struc- 
ture, but lade ideological unity. 

The Alliance parties chose to 
reject the single-party structure 
and instead sought unity over 
common programmes at local and 
national level. By and large the 
electorate tikes it, so long as it 
appears harmonious. But when 
the stream diverges the public gets 
jumpy, as wesaw over defence. 

For the Alliance the problems of 
policy-making have an extra 
dimension. It is difficult enough 
for a single party to balance 
accountability mid topicality in its 
manifesto preparations.- The an- 
nual conference or assembly 
rightly regards itself as the defin- 
itive voice of party policy but it 
can only be a snapshot of the 
issues at that moment On de- 
fence, lor instance, the events at 
Reykjavik changed the whole 
context of British political re- 
sponse only days after the con- 
ference season. 

The parliamentary parties thus 
regard themselves as more up-to- 
date arbiters of party policy, and at 
election time itself the party 


leaders, de fecto or de jure, have a 
veto of sons on policy. 

The crux of the Affiance's 
problem on defence, which so 
gripped the assembled media at 
Eastbourne, was: How do two 
parties create one joint policy? 
Other countries and other liberal 
parties manage to run separate 
party and coalition policies at the 
same time. The FDP in West 
Germany fights for its own pro- 
gramme but also indicates its wish 
to continue coalition policies. The 
MRG in - France has its own 
manifesto but has also subscribed 
to the left’s Common Programme. 

Why should we regard our 
constituents as inherently less 
capable of understanding such 
political realities? Ideally we de- 
velop liberal values and t hi nkin g 
and contribute that to the dis- 
cussion of Alliance policy. 

Without exception the com- 
mentators have missed the crucial 
advance towards this signalled by 
last week's Liberal agreement over 
Alliance defence policy. At the 
Liberal party's policy committee;- 
for the first time since the forma- 
tion of the Alliance five years ago, 
the “due processes” of the party 
sat down together and resolved, 
unanimously, a controversial and 
delicate Alliance policy problem. 
Nobody fried' to hijack the dis- 
cussion, or to impose a text. 
Above all nobody argued for a 

personal position, recognizing that 

tbe task in hand was to take 
existing policy and to fashion it 
into a pragmatic, sustainable and 
sound Alliance defence strategy. 

The outcome, in David Steer s 
words “freeze, and negotiate 
down”, was not intrinsically dif- 
ferent from what was actually 
passed at the Liberal assembly. It 
is different from what was thought 
in some quarters to have been 
passed at Eastbourne! The sub- 
sequent trauma will have been 
worthwhile if it is now recognized 
that real unity comes from includ- 
ing the party. Those who negotiate 
and agree have a duty thereafter to 
persuade and deliver. 

We are in coalition politics and 
we need to come to terms with the 
extra tensions it brings. It is the 
reality of politics that one seeks 
agreement with one’s allies in 
order to win the political battle 
with one’s enemies. As J. K. 
Galbraith says in his memoirs: “It 
is your friends who give you 
power. You can overcome Opposi- 
tion, but you cannot do it without 
allies.” . 

Of course, we all remain in- 
dividuals with individual views. 
As working politi cans we remain 
keen to influence policy in our 
direction. There will be numerous 
Opportunities to do so. I hope the 
public recognizes that h is neither 
necessarily disloyal nor uncon- 
structive to argue a case different 
from colleagues. A House of

clones is a fearsome prospect

Great scoops I’ve 
overlooked 


From time to time all journalists 
are approached by eager young 
people with ambition burning in 
their eyes as bright as football 
floodlights, who ask therm “How 
do you . set about becoming a 
journalist?" I don’t know what all 
other journalists do in these 
circumstances, but I know what I 
da f say: “I haven't the foie test 
idea.” Sometimes I add: “And if 
you ever find out, let me know." 

This isn’t just because I want to 
kill the conversation before it has 
started. It is genuinely because I 
do not have the fomtest idea- how 
to be a journalist, at least not in 
die sense of being a reporter. If I 
were first on the scene of a rail 
crash, 1 have a terrible suspicion 
that I would try to help with the 
rescue work instead of reporting it. 
Worse, if 1 were given exclusive 
knowledge lhat a rail crash were 
about to happen in five minutes, I 
would actually try to prevent it. 
That’s how bad a reporter I am. 

This was brought home to me 
last week when several of the daily 
papers led off with the news that 
Prince Andrew had opted for 
longer-term plans with the Royal 
Navy. Some of them got so excited 
dial they gave the impression be 
was about to become an admiral 
any day. and was on the point of 
leading us into battle with Fergie 
at his side. But to me the only 
interesting thing about this item 
was that I had already known 
about it for a month. 

Without infringing the Official 
Secrets Acl that strange law which 
decrees that the British must not 
learn things which are common . 
knowledge to Russia and America, 

I can reveal that 1 was chatting to a 
man who works for the Admiralty. 

I can also reveal that he men- 
tioned casually lhat Prince An- 
drew was being transferred to a 
longer service list, an item which 
he thought might interest me. I 
thanked him courteously and 
thought no more about it. Last 
week it made front-page news and 
I realized for the first time that I 
must have been silting on a big 
story. 

what-worries me stiff about the 
-whole thing, and what makes me 
dread the approach of bright 
young people asking how to 
become a journalist, is that I still 
cannot see for the life of me what 
made it a big story. 

The first time 1 ever witnessed 
the true reporting spirit at work 
was years ago. after a small air ■ 
crash at L^dd. 1 was there to meet 


my parents-in-law, who were fly- 
ing tack from France. It was night, 
and the plane had just landed 
outside. There was obviously 
something wrong with the landing 
because seversT airline staff mem- 
bers ran out info the dark looking 
very worried, after which there 
were about 10 minutes of tense 
silence during which we all fett like 
singing hymns and praying. 

Then suddenly the door burst 
open and a man ran m. He raced 
toa telephone, stuffed money m it 
and said: “Hello? Daily Express? 1 
have a story for you.’ The plane 
from France has just overturned 
on landing at Lydd Airport . . 

It turned out that the man was 
only a passenger, but a passenger 
who knew what to do. Selflessly, 
be tad forced his way out of tire 
aircraft and tad rushed to bring 
the news to the world, and £30 to 
himself ft was what reporting was 
all about 

The only real chance 1 ever tad 
to emulate him came during my 
one visit to South America when I 
got caught up in the June 1980 
military coup in Bolivia. There 
had been TV crews waiting in La 
Paz for a coup for months tat they 
tad all. got bored and had de- 
parted. A week later, when the 
coup came, the only TV crew in 
town was ours, and we were only 
. there to film railway engines. 

The whole dty was put under 
curfew, soldiers, started shooting 
fairly indiscriminately during 
non-curfew hours -and we were ' 
quite lucky to get tbe first flight 
Out three days later. When we 
landed at lima Airport, the first 
eyewitnesses to reach the outside 
world in that time, 1 was ap- 
proached by an eager Peruvian 
who wanted to know every last 
detail of what I'd seen, so oblig- 
ingly 1 told him tbe full story. 

As he rushed away I was 
approached by our cameraman. 
Nick Lera, who had already sent 
his news-film of the coup back to 
London_“You11 never make a 
reporter. Kington,” he said. “That 
man you were talking to is the 
Reuters man in Lima. He's got 
your story now.” 

It’s true. If, for instance. I'd 
known ail this Jeffrey Archer 
business beforehand. I’d just have 
thought: he still can’t handle plots 
property. I don't think I would 
ever have realized that it was a bin 
story. 

In foci. I'm not really convinced 
.that it ispow. That’s how bad a re- 
porter I am.

Brighter opportunities for

That is incompatible with the

ment-oriented profession the

pils may be desirable in an 
ideal ' wOrid, but ' infinitely 
more important than numbers 
is the quality Of teanhing. 

The bizarre reality of our 
education system is that the 
Education Secretary has little 
power to implement such 
changes. State schools are run 
by the local education authori- 
ties. When dissatisfaction with . 
schooling has reached the level ! 
it has now and our inter- 
national competitors are open- 
ing up a lead as wide as they 
are then the Government can- 
not for ever stand by ringing its 
hands. Mr Baker should back 
any intervention .. in the 
teachers’ dispute by being 
prepared to introduce primary 
legislation giving him limited 
powers to secure the better 
management of resources in#

would not even endorse the 
verbal condemnation of Syria 
for its part in the El A1 bomb 
plot in London and no-one 
committed his government to 
the punitive action which 
Britain was seeking to promote 
against Damascus. 

The lack of cooperation 
from Athens was unsurprising 
if only • ‘ because Mr 
Papaiidreou’s Community 
spirit is, to say the most, 
lukewarm. He campaigned be- 
fore the 1981 Greek elections 
on a promise to take Greece

upon with some enthusiasm. 

When it began on July 1. ^ 

Whitehall was surveying a J? 


number of areas in which 
progress might be made under 
British leadership, notably the 
completion of the internal 
market by 1992, the reform of 
the common agricultural pol- 
icy (CAP) and the vexed issue 
of farm -surpluses and the 
growth of a European voice in 
foreign affairs. With two 
months to go it looks unlikely 
that the achievements will be 
conspicuous 

In foreign .affairs, for exam- 
ple, Europe’s voice is if any- 
thing more discordant than 
ever. Its role in Southern 
Africa has diminish ed rather 
than grown and in the Middle 
East (the other region in which 
it was hoped die Community 
might play a bigger part) its 
influence now looks likely to 


been averted through a com- 
promise negotiated by the 
•European Commission with 
British encouragement Euro- 
pean-US relationships have 
also been eased by the solu- 
tion, agreed this week, to the 
long-standing dispute over cit- 
rus and pasta foods. 

But these are not the stuff 
that visions are made of and 
this week's events in Luxem- 
bourg have served only to 
underline the difficulties 
which divide Europe rather 
than the common interests 
which unite it Unless progress 
towards the European dream 
accelerates in the next few 
weeks, Mrs. Thatcher's mes- 
sage to the European par- 
liamentarians will need to be a 
very sober assessment of what 
being a European is all about 


The sexual and violent abuse 
of children has always been a 
matter which arouses deep 
public concern and, indeed, 
deep public anger. For that 
reason, any proposal which 
promises to reduce the number 
of such crimes is certain to 
receive a warm welcome. Un- 
fortunately, it is also likely to 
receive an uncritical one. 

At present partly as a result

r as a result - . .Similarly, when the claim allow an al 


of crime figures showing in- . that most sexual abuse of 
creased abuse, partly as a result children occurs within, the 


of advance publicity for the 
television programme, 
Childxvatch , which is to be 
shown tonight, a number of 
proposals to change the law 
relating to sexual abuse so as to 
make it easier to obtain 
convictions are under dis- 
cussion. These axe supported 
by the widespread views that 
abuse is much , more common 
than is generally believed, that 
it is generally perpetrated by 
parents rather than by strang- 
ers and is thus very difficult to 
detect, and the children never 
tell lies about it 
There is some truth in alt of 
these views, except perhaps 
the last but it is difficult to 
know precisely how much. A 
1 984 MORI poll, for instance, 
reported that one adult in ten 
claimed to have been sexually f 
abused as a’ child. That com- 
pares with the figure of less 
than three thousand prosecu- . 
lions for sexual abuse last year. 
Part of this discrepancy arises 
from the fact that the prosecu- 
tions were for. serious crimes of 
itirestand the like, whereas the 


family is examined more 
closely, it emerges that such 
abuse is proportionately . m uch 
less likely to be committed by 
natural parents than by a step- 
parent, a live-in lover, or some 
other relative. The less 
“normaT the household, in 
fact, the greater the probability 
of sexual abuse. 

It is important to question 
the belief that parents are 
frequently among the more 
serious threats to their chil- 
dren. Were we persuaded of it, ’ 
we would gradually come to 
view normal displays of family 
affection as somehow sinister 
and suspicious. That m turn; 
•would have a chilling effect on \ 
genuinely loving relationships 
between parents and children. 

■ But there are’ some sexually 
corrupt parents. And the pro- 
posed legal reforms are do-, 
signed to solve the problem 
that sexual abuse is hard to 
prove in families where a . 
mixture of threais and linger- 
ing affection inhibits the child 
from making, and perefctting 
with. aoc»«tinn.^ j : 


Two reforms can be un- 
reservedly welcomed. The 
Childline confidential free 
telephone calls which a child 
■can use to obtain help amount 
.to a seemingly modest step 
which will nonetheless help 
some desperate and unhappy 
children and may even save 
lives. Also sensible is the 
Home Secretary's proposal to 
allow an abused child to be 
sensitively cross-examined via 
a two-way video link away 
from the intimidating at- 
mosphere of a courtroom. It 
will reduce, if not entirely 
eliminate, the additional 
tra uma of confronting the 
molester. 

It is also argued, however, 
that since children very rarely 
lie about sexual abuse, the 
existing requirement that a 
child's evidence has to be 
corroborated can safely be 
abandoned. That would 
amount to abandoning the 
defendant’s presumption of 
innocence and must be re- 
sisted. 

It is almost certainly true 
that most children do not lie 
about such experiences. But 
some do. The effect of remov- . 
ing the requirement of 
corroboration, therefore, 
would be to convict some 
umocent people on the staffs- ■ 
tical grounds that most people 
•accused of sexual abuse are 
guilty. To prevent the abuse of 
(dtildreh, we snrelydo.not need

I From Sir Evelyn Shuckburgh 
Sir. The vole to unseat South 
Africa at the International -Red, 
Cross Conference in Geneva (re-’ 
port, October 27) is a deadly blow 
to the Red Cross movement and 
could prove to be the end of the 
whole concept, of an impartial, 
independent and universal Red 
Cross. Woe betide the human race 
if it proves unable to preserve this 
unique institution, sole inter- 
national agency with the power to 
act for humanity in conditions of 
conflict 

The universal acceptance of the' 
Red Cross in war . depends ab- 
solutely on its non-political, in- 
dependent and impartial nature. 
For many yean now this nature 
has been under attack in the 
League of Red Cross Societies, 
where the voting Of the 130-odd 
societies is conducted on UN 
lines. Political lining up has 
increasingly dominated the 
league's efom’ons and its derisions 
and there has been constant 
pressure to subvert it to inter- 
national political ends. 

Up till now the loyalty of the 
majority of national societies to 
the true principle* of the Red 

Sir Peter Hall 

From Lord Rayne 

Sir, Sir Peter HalTs tenure as 
Director of the National Theatre 
has rarely been un controversial 
and the announcement of his 
planned relinquishment of thatf 
role at the end of 1988 will no 
doubt stimulate farther comment 

Without claiming the prescience 
with which hindsight appears to 
aidow so many diarists, it seems 
imety to reoord one supremely 
significant aspect of Sir Peter's 
irigmal appointment and sub- 
sequent achievements. 

When the question of identify^ 
ing a successor to Lord Olivier 
fist arose, I canvassed a wide 
ange of informed opinion and 
vas rapidly persuaded that there 
vas only one ranriiriatft oms tand- 
ngiy equipped for the post — a 
dew unanimously endorsed by 
ny NT board colleagues. 

The Church and Aids 

From MrCJ. G. May 
Sir, Dr Norman, in his discussion 
[feature, October 13) of the 
lurches' attitude to Aids fails to 
aity his own arguments to their 
ogicaJ conclusion. His analogy 
vith the chriera epidemics and the 
t9th-oentuiy attitude to them is 
tpt, if only up to a point’ 

Cholera was indeed the out- 
xraie of human behaviour. It was 
be result of insanitary conditions 
iroduced by ignorance and neglect 
m the part of the authorities, and 
gnorance and self-neglect on the 
art of the victims, considered en 
nasse. 

Similarly Aids is spread by a 
pecific human act Dr Norman 
udges proper consideration of the 
iroblem by cloaking that act in a 
ague phrase, “certain homosex- 
ual practices”. Aids is spread by 
na! intercourse. Whatever other . 
omosexual acts there are are 
relevant 

Dr Norman implies that sinceit ' 
as wrong to attribute cholera to 
ivine wrath, it is also wrong so to 
ttribuie Aids. Sir. it is not as 
imple as that In the first place, 
Me it Is crude to see cholera as . 
unishment imposed from on 
igh, it is also sensible to see 
(norance, neglect and above all 
df-neglect as sinfaL To that 
ictent cholera is a punishment, 
isited upon humans by tbem- 
rlves. 

Dr Norman invokes the Cre- 
tan, the essential nature of 
unans, and our gift oflmowledge 
id reason. These are all indeed 
levant but Dr Norman most 
ievously misses^ point We

Cross has usually just prevailed; 
after the recent vote I do noi see 
how it can do so. 

The Red Cross movement has 
two unassailable towers of 
strength: the international Comm- 
ittee (1CRC). which is beyond tee 
reach of these pernicious -in- 
fluences because it is entirely 
Swiss, and those individual na- 
tional societies still motivated by 
the ideals of Henri Dunam. Both 
these elements are recognized and 
protected by international law. 

It is now essential that, between 
them., they should take steps to 
protect the Red Cross against 
political takeover, whether in the 
league or at the International 
Conference of the Red Cross. It is 
hoped that a lead will be given, 
either by the 1CRC itself or by 
some of those national societies — 
and they exist in all the continents 
— which value and respect tee 
unique services of the Red Cross. 
Yours faithfully.

We have all learned a great deal 
in the intervening period, but 
looking back over tee years of 
intensive effort and exhausting 
pressures involved in establishing 
the NT as a vital, viable and 
permanent presence on tee South 
Bank and in theatre worldwide, I 
remain convinced that Peter Hall 
alone could have contributed the 
talent, tenacity and sheer physical 
energy essential to that task. 

That the “durable concrete” to 
which Lord Olivier referred at the 
formal opening by her Majesty the 
Queen ten years ago has, like 
Galatea, been imbued with life, 
warmth and personality is a 
lasting tribute to the passion and 
persistence of Sir Peter's Pyg- 
malion.

engages in anal intercourse except 
in a very few isolated and specifi- 
cally abnormal circumstances, 
such as zoos and farmers’ fields 
(both the products of human 
interventionX Even there it is a 
rarity. 

it takes humans, with our 
capacity for knowledge and inven- 
tion, to substitute one orifice and 
source of sensations for another. Is 
knowledge and curiosity part of 
human nature? Dr Norman says 
“Yes”. Genesis says “No”: it is a 
characteristic that divides us from 
our true selves — God, as some 
would say. 

None the less we do not need to 
invoke divine wrath to explain 
Aids, nor to form our attitude to it 
The disease is caused by a specific 
act of behaviour that is generally 
regarded as being wrongful The 
justification, however, flows in the 
direction opposite to teat assumed 
by Dr Norman. 

We do not deplore Aids because 
. it is the result of sin. We deplore 
anal intercourse because it is a 
dangerous practice, productive, 
among other things, of disease. It 
is productive of disease because it 
is unnatural. ■ 

What we deplore even more, 
however, is anything that we term 
“self-righteousness”. The prospect 
of persons saying of Aids words to 
the effect of “We told you so” fills 
us with distaste. Sir, we confuse 
being right with being self-righ- 
teous at pur peril.

Holocaust origins 

From Mr S. S. Eustace 
Sir, You say (October 15, article 
by Mr Tony Samstag) that the 
Nobel laureate Eire Wiesel 
“coined tee word Holocaust”. 

He did no such thing. Though 
well used when speaking of tee 
recent atrocious crimes of the 
Nazis, tee word has been in 
regular use in English since the 
mid- 1 3th century, as we learn 
from the Oxford (fictionary. It was 
certainly not coined by Mr Wiesel!

Media material . 
; and the courts 

From the Managing Director of 
s HTX’Ud 

f Sir. Following today's completion 
. (report October 24) of toe series of 

» cases brought against toe media in 
. Bristol, the first under the Police 
/ and Criminal Evidence Act (and 
first reported in The Times on 
f October 15). it is right that 1 
1 should express my grave concern 
L about the impact of these legal 
judgments upon editorial freedom 
. - in this country. 

If it is to become common 
practice for police forces in Britain 
to seek unpublished material each 
time there is a public disturbance 
teen tee position of reporters and 
news crews as impartial observers 
is significantly weakened. This has 
profound implications for the 
safety of our staff and toe full and 
accurate reporting of the events 
themselves. 

On the first point our staff will 
find themselves unwitting targets 
if it is demonstrated that their 
material wilt be used in court. The 
abuse and injury sustained by 
journalists and cameramen in toe 
Bristol disturbance is sufficient 
testimony to the reality of this 
’ danger. To- toe extent that this 
may inhibit their movements and 
operations it will also inhibit the 
free flow of information, so far 
accepted as essential to an in- 
formed democracy. 

It is a sad fact that civil 
disturbance is a common feature 
of life in many countries. This is 
something that all media organ- 
isations in Britain regret and my 
company is no different. We will 
always uphold toe law. 

But toe Police and Criminal 
Evidence Act, and this particular 
use to which it is clearly going to 
be put is, to me. an example of bad 
law. In seeking disclosure of 
unpublished material if the free- 
dom of broadcasters and journal- 
ists is to count for so little in toe 
balance of toe argument in the 
courts themselves then we are 
faced with a major erosion of 
journalistic and, therefore, public 
liberties. 

Despite these obstacles we in- 
tend to pursue vigorously our duty 
to toe public and will in future 
resist equally vigorously, through 
toe courts, any unwarranted 
disclosure. 1 know that colleagues 
in all media will share my concern. 
Yours faithfully.

BBC libel action - 

From Professor P S Atiyah 
Sir. Sir Eldon Griffiths. MP, asks 
today (October 23) why BBC 
licence holders, rather than the 
individuals responsible, should 
pay toe damages and costs of the 
recent libel anion. 

The answer is that the risk of 
such libels is an inseparable 
concomitant of media activities, 
and those who benefit from these 
activities must expect to pay toe 
• fall cost in the long run. 

In much the same way, toe cost 
of blunders by governments and 
their supporters has to be borne 
and paid for by the public. 

Of course, extreme irres- 
ponsibility or bad faith on toe part 
of those personally responsible 
would raise different issues, but 
that would need to be property 
proved. 

Yours faithfully, 

P. & ATIYAH,

Measure for measure 

From the Reverend Canon Donald 
W. C. Mossman 

Sir, The Metrication Board, before 
its dissolution, was doing very 
nicely, and we were well on the 
way to becoming metric. Now we 
are in a position where Alice in 
Wonderland would have felt at 
home. 

A glance in my kitchen cup- 
board reveals teat whereas salt, 
pepper, cornflakes, tea. instant 
coffee, butter are marked only in 
grammes, flour is marked metric 
with an avoirdupois translation. 
Car users think of petrol prices in 
gallons, but the pumps serve litres. 
Televirion weathermen mark 
their maps in Celsius, but translate 
their figures orally into Fahr- 
enheit. 

Are tee British so dim that that 
they cannot go metric entirely, or 
is tee Government afraid to lose 
votes by compelling street traders 
to change their weights? In my 
local market, nearly all fruit is 
anyway sold by 21b which, after 
all, is roughly a kilo. Some 
supermarkets mark meat in 
pounds and decimals of a pound 
weight 

In Europe we are already famed 
for compromises. French house- 
wives do not know how sun pie 
their everyday life is in compari- 
son. 

Yours, faithfully,

OCTOBER 29 1S47 

Known as “Old Fuss and 
Feathers" because of fus stem 
sense of discipline and formality. 
General Winfietd Scott f 1 786- 
1866} became chief general of the 
US Army. He waged a successful 
campaign against the Mexicans 
earlier in tee year, culminating in 
the occupation of Mexico City. 
Brave wards from the Mexican 
leadership could not disguise the 
country's weak position. By the 
Treaty of Guadalupe - Hidalgo in 
February. 184$. Mexico ceded 
nearly all of what is now included 
in New Mexico, Colorado, Utah, 
Nevada, Arizona and California. 


EXECUTION OF IRISH 
SOLDIERS IN MEXICO 

The execution, by order of 
General Scott, of the Irishmen in 
the Mexican service, had called 
forth the following address, pub- 
lished in a supplementary number 
of the Diario del Gobierno, the 
official organ of the Mexican 
Government— 

“Mexicans!'— Among tee Euro- 
pean volunteers whom the Ameri- 
can army bas hired to kill us, there 
are many unfortunate men who are 
convinced of the injustice of this 
war, who profess the same Roman 
Catholic religion we profess, but 
who, being harassed by the misery 
which prevails in Europe, from the 
want of employment and the 
failure of crops, have consented to 
enlist Some of these men, abjuring 
their errors, and following the 
noble impulses of their hearts, have 
passed over to our army to defend 
our just cause. From these his 
Excellency the President formed 
the Foreign Legion, known under 
the name of the Company of St 
Patrick. At La Angostura and at 
Cherubusco they bore themselves 
with the highest intrepidity, and 
after the enemy had gained posses- 
sion of this last point, which was 
only after its defenders had ex- 
hausted their last cartridge, they 
were made prisoners. 

“The generals of the American 
army, who cannot count upon their 
soldiers in a war so iniquitous save 
through the influence of acts of 
ferocity, were determined to shoot 
these Irishmen. Scarcely was this 
known to the city, before every 
breast was filled with horror at the 
thought. His Excellency, the Min- 
ister of Relations, in a touching 
letter to the En glish Consul, the 
estimable lady of her Britannic 
Majesty’s Minister, various private 
individuals, both Mexicans and 
foreigners, we ourselves . . . inter- 
ceded for these brave men, and we 
expected that if they could not be 
pardoned, they would at least be 
spared capital punishment. 

". . . Well, tfw»n. will you believe 
it, my countrymen? This day, in 
cold blood, these Caribs, from an 
instinct of superstition, and after 
the manner of savages, and as 
; practised in the days of Homer, 
have hung up these men as a 
holocaust — they have themselves 
said it — to the manes of the 
general or generals who fell there! 
And in what manner did they hang 
them? Noosing them by the neck 
as they stood upon toe ground, and 
so suspending them that they died 
by inches', strangled by their own 
weight, the mode adopted being 
such that their horrible agony 
lasted more than one how* — a 
spectacle worthy of such men, or 
rather demons escaped from bell. 
This tbty did with 18 of these 
unhap py men. and among them the 
brave Captain Reilli, whose head 
they stuck upon a spike, and 
planted at Cherubusco. To six 
others, who proved that they had 
not volunteered but been im- 
pressed, they gave 200 lashes each, 
and compelled them to dig the 
graves of their companions. 

“Mexicans! These are the men 
who call us barbarians, and who 
sgy they come to civilise us. These 
are the men who have plundered 
the houses of the surrounding 
villages — who have stolen children 
from their families — who have 
slept in the niches devoted to the 
sacred dead — who have with 
blasphemous revelry, clothed 
themselves with the ornaments of 
the altars — who have thrown upon 
the ground the body of Jesus 
Christ, and have made themselves 
drunk in drinking out of the sacred 
vessels! . . . 

“Mexicans! — The Supreme 
Government conjures us in the 
name of the honour of our race — in 
the name of our dignity as men. 
and of God himself, that we should 
all unite by one continued and 
u n a n imous effort, to revenge these 
great outrages, to yield never to 
dismay, and' to wage this war 
without truce and without relent- 
ing. May remorse seize upon every 
selfish or cowardly Mexican who 
cannot say to himself that he has 
fulfilled every duty as a public 
officer and a good citizen; who has 
not contributed by every means in 
his power towards this war — with 
bis person, with the influence of 
his position, with a part of his 
fortune, with his labour, by main- 
taining a number of soldiers — by 
aiding every way those who fight, 
and who has not so employed the 
means which God has given him 
for his service and that of the 
country in which God has placed 
him, that His image shall not be 
cut down, nor his holy name 
blasphemed.

Chelsea’s 
new £ 120 m 
village may 
prove the 
finest yet 

After many years of apparent disregard, 
developers finally woke up to the 
potential of building on the banks of the 
Thames throughout London, from 
Docklands westwards. Hie result has 
been a large number of blocks going up, 
many of them undistinguished but 
offering grand riverside views. 

The latest development, which could 
emerge as the most spectacular, is 
Chelsea Harbour on 20 acres of land 
west of Lots Road power station. It is 
now taking shape at speed as Bo vis 
Construction use the most modern 
techniques to build this joint project by 
the Pe ninsular and Oriental Steam 
Navigation Company and the Globe 
Investment Trust. 

Judging by the response when the first 
apartments came on to the market this 
month, they may be hard pressed to keep 
up with the demand — all but two of tire 
batch of more than 70 were sold within 
days. 

The area now known as Chelsea 
Harbour was in the last century largely 
open countryside with water meadows 
and market gardens serving the needs of 
London, but by the end of the century 
the meadows had been filled in to make 
railway sidings as industrialization took 
over. The sidings themselves had been 
lying derelict for some years before 
Hammersmith and Fulham council ac- 
cepted the present scheme, which eff- 
ectively creates a self-contained village 
with half-a-mile of river frontage. 

It is an expensive site, which cost 
around £1 million an acre, and the 
developers expect to spend £100 million 
in the next two years creating the new vil- 
lage, including some £18 million on the 
infrastructure. 

Designed by Moxley Jenner and 
Partners, Chelsea Harbour has as its 
focal point a yacht harbour capable of 
taking 75 berets, dredged from the basin 
which always existed and connected to 
the river by a lock. 

Around it 10 blocks are planned, 
including houses, providing more than 
400 dwellings and dominated by. a 20- 
storey tower which has 18 apartments — 
1 7 occupying one floor each and a three- 
storey penthouse on the top three floors. 

Called The Belvedere, it will have 
glazed lifts climbing its face and, on top, 
a gold spire with a globe which rises ami 



The Belvedere towers over Chelsea Harbour village with its own yacht harboi 


and as yet there is no price fixed for the 
penthouse, though it is likely to be 
around £3 million. 

With The Belvedere, the first block to 
be built is Chelsea Crescent, curving 
gently to give the greatest panorama of 
die river. It has 64 apartments with 
balconies, and penthouses with roof 
gardens. Prices range from £1 50,000 fora 
one-bedroom studio to £400,000 for a 
three-bedroom apartment. Penthouses 
are from just under £500,000. 

By Christopher Wannan 

Property Co rrespondent 

Buyers will have a wide choice of 
internal layouts and specifications, 
including interior design. Early buyers 
‘will be able to buy in “shell” form and 
have the developers build to their own 
layout and specification. There will be a 
“discreet” security system, and tire estate 
management is likely to indude a 
domestic staff agency, laundry and valet 
service, eaten ng and secretarial 
assistance. 

Other blocks overtook either the yacht 
harbour or the river or both. Two 


facing the harbour. To emphasise the 
quiet village atmosphere there will be no 
through roads, but there is to be an 
underground car park for 2,000 vehicles. 

Included in the scheme are shops, 
restaurants and a pub. and leisure 
facilities such as a community centre, 
gymnasium, s wimming pool and yacht 
dub. 

In accordance with the council's 
wishes, the scheme, though predomi- 
nantly residential, is mixed with 
commercial. At the back of the develop- 
ment are three blocks, one — Chelsea 
Garden Market— with three glass domes 
containing galleries, shops, studios 
and workshops. The Chambers contains 
office suites from 500 to 25.000 square 
feet, and Harbour Yard, covered by a 
Blass atrium, will have galleries, res- 
taurants, workshops and studios. 

It is an imaginative project managed 
by Town and City Properties, and even 
as the first blocks emerge from the mud 
looks set to rival any of the riverside 
developments built or planned. Hie joint 
residential agents are Hampton and Sons 
and Savills. and Jones Lang Wootton are 
the commercial agents. 

The first sales, delighting the agents. 


spacious, providing two-four bedrooms 
in nearly 2,000 square feeL 
The price rises with the floors. The 
first-floor flat has been sold for £345,000, 
and by the lllh floor the price is £650,000. 
They are being released a few at a tune 


directly overlooking the river with 
substantial townhouses faring tree-lined 
gardens. A future phase of the scheme' 
will include a court with gardens and a 
fountain specially designed for the over- 
605. There is also to be an aparthotel 


■ v 1 1 • i 


such property. In the next stage, Savills 
will be marketing the scheme in Hong 
Kong, where there is increasing interest 
in property here, both for investment 
and for future homes for people expect- 
ing to return in die next few years.

Town cave 

®^*PStoe House in Reigate, Surrey, 
wasbuitt in the 16th century and is part 
hmbered apd half tile-hung with a tiled 
r°°f. The Grade ii listed house is, in the 
agents words, "remarkably unspoilt" 
which in this case means that tt needs 
extensive renovation. 

What makes it the more unusual is that 
It has a cave beneath it, carved out of 
sandstone. Until recently it was 
occupied for 154 years by the Legg 
family. 

The house has 12 rooms, the original 
bread ovens, and outside stairs to the 
basement and cave. Situated in the 
centre of Retgate. it has great potential 
for residential subdivision, restaurant 
antique showroom or offices, say the 
agents, Knight Frank and Rutley, who 
are asking offers around £1 75,000.

of the Prince of Wales, later Edward VIL The tease has a positive cefebntfoatf

Garden square blooms 


■ The Hermitage, Box, WHtshlre, is a 
Grade It listed house dating from the 
©arty 17th century, with later 
additions, set witran a walled garden of 
owe h ere. The house has three 
reception rooms, main bedroom state 
and four further bedrooms, with a fiat 
on the lower ground floor and a separate 
two-bedroomed cottage, also Bsted. 
There te a heatto indoor swimming poof, 
and HaWetts Fox and Sons are asking 
£275,000. 


Dickensian link 

■ Bury End is a picturesque thatched 
cottage in Hink worth, near Baldock, 
Hertfordshire, once owned by Monica 
Dickens, great-granddaughter of Charles 
Dickens. She wrote several novels 
there, including Flowers in the Grass. 
based on the property, before she left 
to live in America for many years. 

The cottage, dating from 1630, has the 
features you would expect— ingtenook 
fireplace, exposed beams and the like 
— with three reception rooms and four 
bedrooms, it is set in-half-an-acre of - 
gardens, and JoIhvH James of Baldock is 
asking £170.000. 


London's squares are famous throughout 
the world. A nightingale, after all, sang in 
Beikeley Square, the Americans have 
their embassy in Grosvenor Square and 
everyone knows they have to visit 
Trafalgar Square, one of several on the 
Monopoly board. 

Geveland Square is not so well- 
known, though when its houses were 
built is the mid-lSOOs they were as 
expensive as any in the 
Bayswater/Paddington area. Every 
square has its turn, and present activity 
in Cleveland Square shows that it has 
come round again, for many of the 
houses are now being restored. 

The agents Druce and Company are 
selling 12 flats and maisonettes in the 
square, mriuriing - unmodemized and 
modern apartments in these stucco- 
fronted period houses, as well as in 
purpose-built blocks. 

Prices range from £1 15,000 for a 124- 
year lease' on a large two-bedroom 
ground floor flat in a small purpose-built 
block to £595.000 for the 123-year lease 
of a fine maisonette which has a 
swimming pool complex and jacuzzL 
The latter, in Number 41, is on the south 
side of the square and has four bed- 
room^ each with en suite bathroom, two 
reception rooms, and a patio. It is bring 
refurbished to the highest standard, 
retaining many of the original features. 

According to Francoise EDercy of 


Druce’s Bayswater office, this square of 
elegant listed houses with magnificent 
columned porticos overlooking land-i 
scaped gardens has been discovered by 
people who are now renovating them. 

At Number 24/25 a large and partially 
modernized apartment is for sale at 
£250,000. It has a large reception room, 
two bedrooms and a dining-room or 
third bedroom, with a roof terrace. In the 
ever optimistic tenns of the estate agent. 


Agents are equal 
to the challenge 


“a very little work wonid turn this flat 
into a luxurious home". 

Some of the properties in the Druce 
portfolio are similar , but the agents are 
equal to the challenge of saying some- 
thing new. Number 33b is “an extremely 
light flat in Bayswater’s most sought after 
garden square with the added advantage 
of a large west-feeing patio." So there, 
and the price is £120,000 for the two- 
bedroomed accommodation. 

The sum of £1 15,000 will buy a two- 
bedroom flat in a purpose-built block, 
and the dozen p roper ti es on offer 
provide a variety of accommodation in a 
part of London which will smarten up a 
great deal' in the coming months if the 
agents and the buyers have anything to 
do with it

Highlighting a decade of change 


Tea years ago, to produce a total of 
000,000, an English watercolour safe 
would have had to contain examples of 
the best work of Turner, Girtin, Cozens, 
Sand by and their greatest colleagues. 

Tastes and the market have changed, 
and yesterday at Christie’s a good hot 
unexciting sale of, for the most part, 
Victorian watercolours produced 
£303,941 with a mere four per cent 
looght in. 

The top lot was a sugary Birket Foster 
sunset called ‘The Fetry" which sold for 
£23,100 (estimate £15,000-£20,000). It 
is not possible to say what this might 
have made a decade ago, but in 1966 it 
could not raise a bid of £280. A similar 
taste and progress could be seen in the 
£11,550 paid by a private bidder for a 
view of an old Kentish manor house, 
with hollyhocks, topiary and a cat, by 


By Hnon MaHalfea 

Helen AOingfaam (estimate £4,000- 
£6,000). The artist herself sold it hi 1894 
form 

Sporting subjects were also very 
popular and a “Pheasants Rising" dated 
1900 by Archibald Thorium reached 
£17,600, again paid privately (estimate 
£15,000-£20,000). 

At Phillips, the auctioneers were 
taken by surprise by the demand for a 
very battered canvas of Lot and his 
Daughters attributed to the Florentine 
Giovanni Bdivcrti (1576-1644) aid 
given an estimate of between £1,000 and 
£1,500. Despite tire extensive damage it 
went to the Heim Gallery for £24260. 
The sale produced £193,589 with nine 
percent bought in. 

At Sotheby's a safe of scientific and 
medical instruments and ship models 


made a total of £180,669 with 6.7 per 
cent failing to find buyers. 

There was strong private bidding, 
although the medical section did not 
seem to have recovered entirely from a 
recent tfuU A rare gilt brass early 
seventeenth century mariners* astro- 
labe, which was probably Portuguese, 
reached £27,500 (estimate £15,000- 
£25.000), and a Universal Double- 
Crescent Altitude dial by J. WilfebrnmL 
of Aaasbere, dating from about 1725, 
made £18,150 (estimate £6.000 
£ 10 , 000 ). 

In New York on Monday Christie's 
sold stiver to a total of $1,765*555, or 
£131653, with 12 per cent bought in. 
A kettle, stand and lamp by the great 
Pan) de Lamerie, dated 1751, reached 
5220,000 or £153,846 (estimate 
570,000-5100,000).

Science report 


Tea as an antidote to 
the English breakfast 


By Beatrice Lacoste 


A variety of tea from the 
province of Yiman in China 
could reduce the risk of heart 

disease, according to the results 
of research by some of Europe's 
leading scientists in studies of 
nutrition. 

Their investigations show that 
levels of hazardous cholesterol 
and other lipids in the blood are 
redaced by drinking tuocha tea, 
which is a black, smokey vari- 
ety. 

French doctors who did the 
research hope it can be teed to 
prevent heart disease. They have 
completed a safes of tests 
measuring the changes in 
cholesterol, which is the main 
component of hard deposits in 
the lining of the arteries, and the 
beta-lipoproteins, fat-like sub- 
stances which tend to dog the 
arteries. 

The Chinese have long be- 
lieved in the medidixal prop- 
erties of tuocha tea and Yiman 
exports its whole production to 
the rest of tire country. 

Professor Bernard Jacotot, of 
the Henri Londor Hospital in 
Paris, gave 20 patients, who bad 
unusually high levels of lipids in 
the blood stream, three bowls of 
tea each day for a mouth. He 
found that tbe level of lipids in 
the patients* Mood decreased by 
nearly a quarter. However, the 
same amount of another tea 
during the following month gave 
no results. 

Professor Claude Lotion, of 
the Orsay Laboratory of Nu- 


trition and Physiology in Paris, 
experimented on rats. Out 
group was given a diet rich in 
cholesterol during three months 
white the other was given a 
normal diet. Animals in the first 
group showed a very high In- 
crease in their cholesterol levels 
(1.6 grams per litre), whereas in 
the second group the cholesterol 
levels remained normal, 0.8 
grams per litre. 

When Professor Lotion added 
tuocha tea to the diet of both 
groups of rats daring the follow- 
ing nine weeks the cholesterol 
levels of tbe rats in the first 
group decreased by a third. In 
the other group with normal 
levels it decreased by only a 
tenth. 

Professor Lotion knows that 
the decrease of beta-lipoproteins 
was particularly marked. He 
says more studies are needed to 
identify the substances in tuocha 
tea, and perhaps other teas as 
well, that regulate the complex 
metabolism of cboksteroL 

The French doctor thinks it is 
likely that conpooests m tbe tea 
act on the l i n ing of the intestine, 
limiting the amount of choles- 
terol that can be absorbed. 
Tuocha tea is now bring tested 
on rats that have genetically 
inherited high cholesterol levels. 

If the antidote to ch olesterol 
in eggs and fat on bacon » 
contained in (ho teapot, the 
traditional British breakfast 
may survive.

ing a lowly position in the 
local league. 

By astutely signing up Rug- 
by League international plov- 
ers who happened to be 
biUettcd in Yorkshire, he 
transformed the fortunes of 
the side, which won almost 
every honour within a couple 
of seasons. 

During the 1940s he was 
manager of Leeds fora couple 
of years but left to travel to 
Australia with a touring Brit- 


ish side. It wav during a 
stopover in the United Main 
on the way home that he was 
struck bv u-k* vised American 
football. "I utd to myself, 
that's how l want to see Rugby 
League at home", he Mer 
recalled. 

His first notable report wt 
cm Great Britain versus Nc# 
Zealand at Suirtlufl til J95I. 
He was soon signed up by the 
BBT and for the nrxt A0 yew 
ius idiosyncratic commentar- 
ies made thousands aware of 
the northern rugby game. But 
he was never entirely taken to 
the hearts of northerners, who 
were annoyed with him for 
giving the game a rioihop 
image. 

It was ilunng a dull match, a 
lew years after he began his 
commentating career, that he 
decided to interject a frw of 
the asides which soon became 
his trademarL These helped 
to give the game its appeal, 
particularly to southern audi- 
ences' - though there was an 
Eddie Warms appreciation 
society at Liverpool Umversi-

MR H. FREEMAN MATTHEWS 


Mr H. Freeman Matthews, 
who died on October 19 at the 
age of 87, was one of 
America’s most respected ca- 
reer diplomats, who was con- 
fined by the spoils system to 
medium-rank ambassadorial 
posts. 

Bom at Baltimore, he grad- 
uated at Princeton before 
studying in Paris at the Ecole 
Libre des Sciences Politiques. 

In 1924 he entered the 
American foreign service and, 
after various junior postings, 
mainly in Latin America, 
worked in the Paris ambassv 
from 1937 to 1939. He then 
helped to open the first US 
embassy to the Franco govern- 
ment in Madrid. 

In 1940 he was back in 
France and accompanied the 
French government when it 
fled from Paris to Bordeaux. 
For a time he was charge 
d'affaires at Vichy. 

But in 1942 he came to 
London to serve as a political 
adviser on the staff of General 
Eisenhower before the Allied 
landings in French North 
Africa. In 1943 he was trans- 
ferred to Washington where. 


for the next Four year*, he was 
director of the European office 
in the State Department. As 
such he attended a number of 
major iniernatioiul confer- 
ences during and after the war. 
including Yalta and Potsdam. 

But Matthews never again 
had such interesting work to 
do. From 1947 until his 
retirement in 1962 he was 
successively ambassador to 
Sweden, the Netherlands and 
Austria, apart from three years 
(1950-3) as a deputy under- 
secretary at the State 
Department. 

In 1956, when the personal 
rank of caiccr ambassador was 
established, he was one of the 
first four diplomats to receive 
it. But it was hardly a substi- 
tute for the top posts which he 
was qualified to hold but 
which went, instead, to politi- 
cal appointees. 

After his retirement he was. 
until 1968. a member of the 
CIA's board of national 
estimates. 

He was three times married, 
and his third wife. Elizabeth, 
survives him, with two chil- 
dren from his first marriage. 


DR PAUL TOURNIER 


Dr Paul Toumier. Christian 
psychiatrist, and exponent of 
the theory of the healing of the 
whole person - body, mind 
and spirit - died in Geneva on 
October 6. He was S8. 

Paul Toumier was bom on 
May 12, 1898. the son of a 
Calvinist pastor and poet, and 
spent most of his childhood 
with relatives following the 
death of his parents. 

After qualifying in medicine 
he worked for a time with the 
Red Cross repatriating Rus- 
sian and Austrian prisoners of 
war. He was then for many 
years a general practitioner in 
Geneva. 

As a young man he met Dr 
Frank Buchman and joined 
the Oxford Group. But later 
he and Buchman parted, 
though without any ill-will on 
Toumicr’s pan. 

Indeed, he dedicated to 
Buchman the book which 
sums up his doctrines. La 
Medicine de la Personnc (The 
Healing of Persons), published 
in 1940. In it he argues that the 
task of a doctor is “to discern 
God’s plan for life”, so making 
priest and physician almost 
interchangeable. 

The theory met with criti- 
cism and ridicule from both 
theologians and doctors, it 
has, nevertheless, become in- 
creasingly popular, especiallv 
in the United States and 
Japan. Much of what is scien- 
tific in it has taken a more 
sophisticated form in the 


modem development of psy- 
chosomatic medicine. 

Toumier devoted the rest of 
his life lo expounding and 
elaborating his belief that sick 
modem man is in search of his 
soul. His many books, which 
have been widely translated, 
include The Bible and Suffer- 
ing. The Strong and the ti'tak 
and tpprendre d hettUr 
(Learning to Grow Old), 
which incorporates his ideas 
on the need ui prepare for 
retirement 

He is survived by hissreood 
wife. Confine, whom he mar- 



M ANDRE 
RATTI 

M Andre Raui, Swiss 
nalist. author and broadd 
died on October 35, at th 
of 51. He devoted his Iasi 
warning people a 
AIDS, of which he vw 
victim. 

In 19S1 he left Swiss to 
sion after ten years as hosi 
science programme, and « 
several articles on tbe dis 
before himself comracuti] 

He founded the self- 
group “AIDS 1 
Switzerland", and in Jul 
last year appeared on tei 
sion to speak frankly of 
plight, which- included 
creasing blindness.

Bitter Kre mlin 
lashes Britain 
for Syria action 

From Christopher Walter, Moscow 


THE TIMES WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 29 1986 

Three die, 36 hurt, in bus crash 


The Soviet Union yesterday 
issued a bitter formal 
condemnation of Britain's de- 
cision to break diplomatic ties 
with Syria, saying that its 
accusations of Syrian govern- 
ment involvement in the plot 
to blow up an El A1 airliner at 
Heathrow airport were 
“groundless”. 

in a strongly-worded state- 
ment read to Western and 
Soviet correspondents, Mr 
Gennady Gerasimov, the 
Kremlin’s chief spokesman, 
claimed that the actions of the 
British in severing relations 
and of America in withdraw- 
ing its envoy from Damascus 
“further aggravate the already 
tense situation in the Middle 
East”. 

Describing Britain's action 
as provocative, Mr 
Gerasimov 

added:“Proceeding from an 
obvious invention, the British 
and American propagandists 
are trying to launch a large- 
scale anti-Syrian campaign 
and force other Western Euro- 
pean countries to follow 
London's unseemly action.” 

The statement, which re- 
inforced a barrage of hostile 
attacks in the official Soviet 
media, accused Whitehall of 
practising double standards by 
tailing to condemn Israel for 
its 19-year occupation of the 
Syrian Golan Heights and for 

Kinnock’s 
mortgage 
relief plan 

Con tinned from page 1 

a fall in the total of tax relief 
The Labour leader main- 
tained he was not announcing 
a new policy. “The system of 
relief has so changed as to fail 
adequately to meet the objec- 
tive of helping the majority of 
home-buyers with their costs, 
and must be reappraised. 

“Rises in support for the 
very best paid and housed are 
not defensible either in terms 
of the economic use of re- 
sources or in terms of social 
need." 

In his speech Mr Kinnock 
set out Labour's plans for 
council and private tenants. 
He hinted that as well as 
gening new rights of security, 
repair and representation, pri- 
vate tenants would get the 
right to purchase their prop- 
erties where landlords were 
not resident. 


letting US planes use British 
territory to launch bombing 
raids on Libya. 

Mr Gerasimov added:“The 
Soviet Union rejects terror 
and calls on stales to co- 
operate effectively in totally 
uprooting this dangerous 
phenomenon. But the adop- 
tion of concrete measures 
requires weighty evidence and 
not false inventions, especially 
when we are dealing with 
attempts to associate the ac- 
tion of irresponsible individ- 
uals with the policy of states.” 

The force of Soviet reaction 
has been increased by the 
Kremlin's treaty of friendship 
with Damascus, but there 
were no hints from the spokes- 
man yesterday that verbal 
condemnation of Britain 
would be followed by any 
diplomatic sanctions. 

in a separate development, 
Mr Gerasimov stressed the 
importance the Kremlin now 
attached to the planned meet- 
ing in Vienna early next 
month between Mr Eduard 
Shevardnadze, the Soviet For- 
eign Minister, and his Ameri- 
can counterpart, Mr George 
Shultz. 

“We have to continue what 
was started in Reykjavik. . .if 
we stop now, we would lose 
momentum." Mr Gerasimov 
said.

claimed another. 

Mr Joaquim Chissano. the 
Foreign Minister, who. with 
Mr dos Santos, led the pro- 
cession of government and 
party mourners, is widely 
lipped as the most likely 
successor to President Ma- 
chel. Mr dos Santos, who has 
made most of the public i 
announcements since the 
crash, is unlikely to succeed, 
observers believe, partly be- 
cause of his mixed racial 
origin. 

A 21-gun salute boomed out 
before the coffin was wheeled

Rescuers cutting into the wreckage in an effort to free trapped passengers. 


Three elderly women died and an- 
other 36 passengers were burned, 20 
serioasly, when a bus collided head-on 
with an articulated lorry near Newcastle 
city centre yesterday then smashed into 
a wail (lan Smith writes). 

Fireman had to ase ladders to reach 
tbe windows before they could smash 
them to reach passengers trapped on the 
upper deck, because the staircase was 
mangled and partially torn away. 

An emergency casualty team tended 
tbe injured as they were carried onto the 
pavement and a fleet of 16 ambcdances 


was used to ferry them to Newcastle 
General Hospital and the Royal 
I nfi r m ar y. 

Firemen had to use a special saw to 
free the lorry driver from the twisted 
remains of his cab, which was torn away 
when the load of b re eze b locks on its 
trader was sent hurtling forward in the 
crashJlendreds of the blocks had to 
moved before they omU reach the driver 
who was eventually taka to hospital 
with serious head and leg injuries. 

Cutting aparatas also had to be aged 
to free ok woman passenger who was 


catapulted oat of tbe bos window and 
trapped in between the two vehicles. 
One woman, fatally injured, had to be 
cut from her seat on the tower deck. AD 
three fat a liti es were women on the lower 
deck. 

Northumbria police are not releasing 
names of the dead until relatives have 
been inf ormed. 

The bes is owned by City Busways, 
which began operating only last week- 
end when privatization of fans rentes 
took effect 


‘Warped’ Bamber guilty of murders 


Continued from page 1 
Sheila Caffell who had then 
committed suicide." 

In answer to widespread 
criticism of police handl ing of 
the case, he raised six points 
which he said justified the 
initial police response to the 
massacre. 

These involved Bamber’s 
claim that he had received a 
telephone call from his father 
reporting that Sheila had gone 
crazy with a gun, his descrip- 
tion to police of his sister's 
dangerous mental slate, a 
three hour delay caused by 
armed police surrounding the 
house, the fact that the house 
was completely secure from 
the inside, the positioning of 


the murder weapon on 
Sheila's body, and finally the 
appearance of Jeremy Bamber 
as a grieving relative. 

Mr Stone, who retires to- 
day, added: “The senior offi- 
cers who attended this tragic 
scene took note of all it 
presented and deduced pre- 
cisely what had been intended, 
namely, murder followed by 
suicide. 

“ In accordance with nor- 
mal procedures they arranged 
for scenes of crime officers to 
carry out an examination of 
the bouse and for the bodies to 
be removed to enable post- 
mortem examinations to be 
held. 

“In fact the scenes of crime 


examinations look two-and-a- 
half days to complete. A 
forensic pathologist per- 
formed the post-mortems, 
concluded that all tbe persons 
had died as a result of gunshot 
wounds and considered that 
the murder-suicide theory was 
feasible.” 

Mr Stone said that the 
emereence of Miss Julie 
Mugford. Bamber’s former 
girl friend, as a witness was a 
breakthrough of vital im- 
portance but that in the mean- 
time scientific evidence was 
reaching police and casting 
doubt on the initial theory. 

Mr Stone added: “With the 
benefit of that perfect science, 
hindsight, it could be said that 


tbe judgements made at the 
scene of the crime by senior 
officers were misdirected. 

“ But I must again empha- 
size tbe careful way in which 
the whole affair had been 
planned. While assumptions 
were made, no firm con- 
clusions were initially drawn 
and the evidence collected 
eventually enabled the in- 
vestigating team to pursue 
what proved to be the final 
line of enquiry.” 

Mr Stone said that he had 
full confidence in the judge- 
ment of Det Chief Insp Tom 
Jones, who led tte inquiry 
initially and who died earlier 
this year when he fell off a 
.ladder at home.

No time to get 

used to a scandal 


Just as we observers of 
politics get used to one 
crnnrfal. the scandal changes 
to another one. 

We went off for last week- 
end with tbe scandal being 
the one about Conservative 
Central Office having alleg- 
edly put pressure on Tory 
witnesses not to give ev- 
idence for the defendants in 
the libel action which two 
Conservative MPs had bro- 
ught a gainst an edition of 
Panorama for suggesting that 
they were part ofa fascist or 
neo-nazi plot to infiltrate the 
Tory Party. Tbe scandal be- 
fore that had been the edition 
of Panorama itself (The two 
; sides of the House always 
disagree as to what, at any 
given moment, tbe scandal 
is.) 

it may be remembered that 
there had been a scene at the 
end of Question Time on 
Thursday. Mr Dale Camp- 
beUnSavours, the Labour 
Member for Workington, 
made the necessary allega- 
tions in tbe form ofa point of 
order. He named the allegedly 
guilty man: a Central Office 
to gti advisor. Mr MitchdL 

Mr Tebbit intervened and 
told him to come outside and 
say that, away from the 
protection of parliamentary 
privilege. Mr Chmpbefl-Sav- 
ours declined. 

We had just about got used 
to the cast of characters in 
this scandal: Mr Tebbit, Mr 
Mitchell, tbe reporter Mr 
Michael Cockerell of Pan- 
orama, the BBC, Mr Alisdair 
Milne, the two libelled Tory 
MPs and Hitler. They had 
become like old 
acquaintances. • 

We got back on Monday to 
find that tbe cast had com- 
pletely changed. Now it was 
Mr Jeffrey Archer, a sinister- 
sounding lawyer called Mr 
Aziz Kintba, who has since 
disappeared, a courtesan 
nam ed Monica who for some 
unexplained reason is in 
practice under the code name 
erf “Debbie” and various 
brutes from the News of the 
World. They seemed an even 
more interesting lot, although 
one was sorry to lose Mr 
Cockerell and Hitler. 

Then, halfway through Pri- 
me Minister's questions yes- 
terday, Mr David CTefland, 
the Labour Member for 
Tynebridge, asked Mrs Tha- 
tcher to comment on the 
“lies” which, he said, last 
Sunday’s Observer proved 
rite had told during the 
Westland affair, which was 
last January's scandal (al- 
though this allegation of lies 


immediately made it the new 
scandal too). 

The Speaker intervened to 
say that Mr Oeiland, who is 
relatively new to the House, 
might not know that a Mem- 
ber is not allowed waause . 
another of lying. Mr Oeiland * 
replied that he was only \ 

quoting The Observer. The $ 

Speaker said that, if he looked a 
in Erskine May, the par- 
Jiamentary role book, he fl 

would see that that to no • 
excuse. Mr Oeiland re- 
phrased his question. % 

He wanted Mrs Thatcher g 

to comment on this new F 

information about tbe leak to !;■ 
the press of the Solicitor- r 
General's letter to the then ■' 
Secretary for Defence, Mr. : 
Michael Hesettine: the cen- ■ 
tral event of the entire West- i 
lan d affair. The new scandal ■ 
was about what Mr Bernard ■ 
In gham , the Prime Minister’s : v 
Press Secretary, said to the [>; 
girt f-j 

The girl was in business as f 
a press officer, working the F 
Department of Trade and { / 
Industry beat under tbe name 
“Ms Colette Bow”. The sin- v 
ister-seeming figure, with 
whom she had got involved, 
was a lawywe called Mr Leon 
Brittan, who was said to be in 
control of the entire Depart- | 
menL He has since disa- ?*' 
ppeared. wr 

Someone wanted Iter to jthe 
reveal some scandalous inf- :no 
ormation to the press. But ’an 
who? Was it Mr Brittan? Or fes. 
was it this shadowy Mr |ps, 
Ingham? Mrs Tbatchar re- 4ire 
plied that she had not read are. 
The Observe article, and did «cht 
not intend to read.it 
Like many in her pro-£]* s 
fession, Ms Bow had got ^i- 
herself mixed up with a very ^ 
rough man. But how did The 
Observer know that this rtas £a 
what Mr Ingham had said. ^ 
One is forced to the conclu- % 
rion that they were tape- iJS 
recording Mr Ingham's tel- -g 
ephone conversations or had a 
“wired up" the girl ^ 

On a point of order, Mr 
W illiams demanded that the ‘ 
Speaker mak e Mrs Thatcher . 
answer the allegation about ^ 
this Mr Ingham. The Speaker “ 
said this was not a point of ~ 
order and h was • “rep- 
iehensible" fear Mr Williams- ,J1S 
to continue question time 
through foe Chair. “I do not 
know what Mr Ingham said,” s» 
the Speaker added. Exactly. ir 
We were just getting used to £ 
the new cast: the terrifying S 
Mr In gham; the elusive Mr it 
Brittan; and the frightened it 
girl on tbe telephone. Doublet- 
less they will be replaced b 
the end of the week. —

Eurotunnel 
confident 

Eurotunnel 


Eurotunnel was last njg fr f 
confident that tbe deadline for 
its £206 million international 

share placing at 2pm today 
would be met. 

Indications were that the 
final £10 million needed from 
British institutions had been 
pledged, to bring total British 
commitments to more than 
£70 million. 

A similar amount has also 
been raised in France, where 
some large investors have 
been having last-minute 
doubts. The £20 million from 
Japan has always looked 
secure. 

That leaves the only poten- 
tial shortfall in the US, where 
the £20 million placing is 
being handled by Salomon 
Brothers, and in the rest of 
■Europe, which is also expected 
to raise £20 million. 

Wolseley up 

Wolsdey, the largest sup- 
plier of plumbing and heating 
equipment in Britain, yes- 


terday reported pretax profits 
‘12 months to end-Juiy 


for the 

1986 up 60 per cent to £503 
million. Turnover rose from 
£527.1 million to £739.1 mil- 
! lion. Earnings per share, ad- 
justed for a one-for-three 
rights issue in April 1986, 
increased from 31.99p to 
4l39p. The 8p proposed final 
dividend, combined with the 
3.5p interim dividend, repre- 
sent a 41 per cent increase on 
last year. Tempos, page 29 


BCA record 


In another record year to 
August 1, pretax profits at the 
British Car Auction Group 
jumped 36.5 per cent to £1 3.8 
million on turnover up 51 Vi 
per cent at £89 million. The 
dividend was increased by 38 
per cent to 45p net.

Apex bid fails 


Apex Group, the New Zealand 
property developer, has foiled 
in its tender offer for 29 per 
cent of Property Holding & 
Investment Trust (Phit), the 
property company. Chase 
Corporation, a rival New Zea-

Hanson pensions 


move causes 
Courage strike 


More than 300 workers at 
the Courage brewery in Read- 
ing walked out yesterday in 
protest at what they see as an 
attempt by Hanson Tru& to 
sipbon off an £85 million 
surplus in their pension fund. 

Courage, Britain's serth-big- 
gest brewer, was acquired by 
Hanson in the ELS billion 
takeover of the Imperial 
Group earlier this year and it 
is now being sold to the 
Australian Foster’s lager 
group. Elders DCL 

Production at the brewery 
was halted shortly after 6am 
yesterday when manual work- 
ers manned a picket tine at the 
entrance to the plant. A 
spokesman for the brewery 
said that the proposed stop- 
page was for 48 hours after 
which another meeting of the 
employees was planned. 

At Hanson's London head- 
quarters Mr Martin Taylor, a 
director, declined to speculate 
on what, if any, was the 
current surplus in the brewery 
workers' pension fund. 

“We are in the process of 
carrying out an actuarial 
valuation of the fund and we 


By John Bell, City Editor 

do not know what the surplus 
is, if any.” 

Mr Taylor said that, after 
completion of the valuation, a 
sum would be transferred to 
Elders IXL which would be 
sufficient to meet aO obliga- 
tions relating to the pension 
entitlements of the workers 
who would be transferring to 
Elders’ employment. 

Hanson would retain an 
obligation to meet the entitle- 
ments of 12,000 deferred and 
present pensioners of the 
Courage group. 

Although Mr Taylor would 
not go into details, it appears 
that, since the bare actuarial 
liabilities are to be transferred 
to Elders, any surplus will 
remain with Hanson Trust 

Despite Mr Taylor’s refusal 
to speculate about the exis- 
tence of a surplus in the 
Courage pension fond it 
would be surprising if, on 
completion of the actuarial 
valuation, there were not 
substantial surpluses. 

Over the mud 10 years the 
returns available from the 
British and international stock 
markets have been greatly in 


excess of those normally pro- 
jected by the actuarial 
profession. 

Tbe extent of pension fund 
surpluses which have accrued 
over recent years is so big that 
in the last Budget tbe Chan- 
cellor, Mr Nigel Lawson, 
brought in a number of mea- 
sures designed to tax them if 
they are returned to tbe 
company. 

Feelings are running high 
among past and present Cour- 
age employees. Some are plan- 
ning to voice their protest at a 
special meeting of Hanson 
Trust shareholders today. 

One of them, Mr Alan Ridd, 
a former Courage production 
director, said yesterday that he 
and his colleagues were con- 
cerned that large pension fund 
surpluses would come under 
the control of a company of 
which they had little or no 
knowledge and that former 
employees would have little 
say in bow the surpluses 
would be used. 

Hanson Trust has attracted 
criticism for the way .it has 
broken up tbe Imperial Group 
since h gained control 



Spending boom 
fuels optimism, 
CBI claims 


By Graham Searjeant, Financial Editor 


Britvic puts fizz 
into cola wars 


By Teresa Poole 


A big realignment of the 
British soft drinks industry 
was signalled yesterday with 
the announcement of a series 
of deals that set the battlelines 
for a renewed offensive in the 
aria wars. 

On one side will be Britvic 
Corona. This will be forma! 
by Britvic Soft Drinks acquir- 
ing, for£120 million, the main 
part of tbe British soft drinks 
business of Beecbam, the 
pharmaceuticals and con- 
sumer products group. Britvic 
Corona has been awmried also 
the British franchise for Pepsi- 
Cola and 7-Up products. 

The new company will be in 
competition with the joint 
venture between Coca-Cola 
and Cadbury Schweppes, an- 
nounced last year, which yes- 
terday said that it would start 
operating at the beginning of 

February.; 

Pepsi-Cola International 
has been searching for a new 
franchisee ever since Cadbuiy, 
which used to handle Pepsi's 
bottling and distribution, said 
it was joining forces with 
Coca-Cola. 

By buying the Beecbam 
businesses, Britvic expands its 
bottling and distribution facil- 
ities to a level which can 
handle the Pepsi franchise and 
acquires also a number of 
leading brands including Co- 
rona, Quosh, Tango, Hunts 
and Top Deck. 

To complete the jigsaw, 
Beecham. which holds the 
Coca-Cola franchise until 


1992 in the North of England, 
Scotland and Wales, has 
agreed to the- eariy termina- 
tion of the contract for 
payment of between £10 mil- 
lion and £15 million. From 
next year Coca-Cola 
Schweppes Beverages will 
cany out all its own bottling 
and distribution. 

Beecham will retain its 
more profitable specialist 
health drinks, which include 
Lucozade, Horiicks. Ribena, 
and BovriL 
. Britvic Corona will have 
sales of about £300 mil Kra i 
and win combine Beecham’s 
strong presence in off-licences, 
supermarkets, and newsagents 
— the take-home trade— with 
Britvic’s strong sales to tbe 
licensed trade. 

Soft Drinks is a wholly 
owned subsidiary of Britannia 
Soft Drinks which is jointly 
owned, 50 per cent by Bass 
and 25 per cent each by Allied- 
Lyons and Whitbread. Its 
leading brands include 
Britvic, R Whites, Shandy 
Bass and Canada Dry. 

Pepsi will acquire a 10 per 
cent interest in Britvic Corona 
for between £15 million and 
£20 million. Mr Peter Ken- 
dall, regional vice-president of 
Pepsi-Cola, Northern Europe, 
said the new organization 
would immediately triple the 
distribution of Pepsi-Cola 
products in Britain. Headded: 
“The new venture represents a 
coup for us in die cola wars.” 


Turner & Newall may 
sue over AE bid costs 


By Alison Eadie 

Turner & Newall, the en- pected would be Hill Samuel, 

the merchant bank acting for 


gmeering group which has 
been cleared to bid again for 
AE, yesterday said it was 
taking legal advice on the 
possibility of recovering some 
of the £4 million costs in- 
curred in the abortive bid and 
redress for the damage done. 

Financial advisers to T&N 
stressed last night that there 
was no assurance it would be 
legally possible to recover 
anything. The parties from 
whom recovery might be ex- 


AE, Hill Samuel Investment 
Management, Cazenove, AE*s 
stockbroker, and Midland 
Bank, AE*s principal banker. 

On Monday the takeover 
panel strongly criticized AE*s 
advisers for their defence tac- 
tics, which enabled AE to 
escape from TAN'S dutches. 
Their tactics were breaches of 
the Takeover Code, which has 
no statutory backing. TAN’S

New Topic 
failure 
hits SEAQ 


By Lawrence Lever 

The Stock Exchange's com- 
puter systems broke down 
again yesterday - with the 
Topic aetwurkorce more cans- 


foSxue cansed the Stock 
Exchange Automated Quota- 
tions system to be withdraw! 
for half an hoar at lpm faring 
brokers back to the foe tra- 
ditional dealing methods on 
the Stock Exdmnge floor. 

The view from fee broken 
and market-makers, however, 
was tint the tjaphig . of 
yestetdsy’s failure - athmdH 
time when- business is tra- 
ditionally qaiet — meant that 
the effects on business were 
slight 

“It could have come at a 
much worse time for us aH.” 
one stockbroker said 
yesterday. 

The official explanation 
from the Stock Exchange was 
that the failure was due to 
factors entirely different from 
Monday’s overloading 
proUemJt said that a routine 
operational procedure de- 
signed to refresh the electronic 
contact between the central 
TOPIC system and foe 
TOPIC terminals was to 
blame: 

“It is like switching die 
whole system off and on again 
instantly. We found out that 
we can no longer do this now 
with the increased level at 
which TOPIC is used” a Stock 
Exchange spokesman said 
yesterday. 

The vulnerability of the 
Topic system to failure when 
overused continues to concern 
foe Stock Exchange. 

Mr Edth Gohfe-Mon»a 
a member of the Exchange’s 
markets committee said 
yesterday^foe real danger is 
an anpraEctable surge where 
everyone dives for their 
screens, say when some very 
bad news is announced. Yon 
could get a very sudden over- 
load. We are stiD playing with 
foe parameters — we haven't 
got these right yet. 

The Ktftmngo admitted 
sterday that the TOPIC 
software is inadequate to cope 
with the canent level of de- 
mand by users. In foe mean- 
time it has taka technical 
remedial measures ** pending a 
more comprehensive software 
solution which will take a 
while to develop and foor- 
hlytesr. 

o reduce the Ekefihood of a 
systems faBnre from overuse 
the Exchange yesterday de- 
layed the access to the Topic 
system of dosed user groups 
for four bouts. 

Moreover it has restricted 
access to the SEAQ level 2

Grand Met sells 
Liggett for f 97m 


By Cliff Feltimm 


Grand Metropolitan, the 
hotel and brewing group, has 
al last sold its Liggett cigarette 
business in tbe US for Si 37 
million (£97 million). 

But while the City wel- 
comed the long-awaited deal 
yesterday, there was concern 
that the disposal may malm 
Grand Met — the subject of 
considerable takeover specu- 
lation - a juicier target for a 
predator now that one of its 
troublesome activities has 
been removed. 

The sale' of Liggett, to a 
corporation controlled by a 
New York investor, Mr Ben- 
nett LeBow, comes two-and-a- 
haif years after Grand Met 
came dose to selling the 
business to its own manage- 
ment for £230 million. 

But negotiations came un- 
stuck and cigarette profits 
plunged as Liggett became 
caught in a fierce price-cutting 
war from which it has now re- 
covered. 

The operation, which trades 
as Liggett and Myers, is based 
in Durham, North Carolina, 
the home of America's to- 
bacco industry and its best- 
known brands include L & M, 
Chesterfield. Lark, and Eve, as 
well as a range of private-label 
cigarettes. 

Last year, it earned 


£780,000 on a turnover of I 
£487 million, but earnings 
have improved sharply in the 
nine months of this year to 
more than £17 million. 


Grand Met paid £191 mil-| 
lion for the Liggett group in 
1980, but has now raised £212 1 
million from the sale of its! 
tobacco interests. 


The continuing boom in 
I consumer spending and the 
devaluation of sterling against 
the mark have made the 
British raanaufacturing in- 
dustry more optimistic about 
its order prospects for the next 
four months than at any time 
since April 1985. the Confed- 
eration of British Industry 
(CBI) claims, after its latest 
quarterly survey of industrial 
trends. 

And industry is more 
optimistic about exports after 
a period of deep gloom in the 
summer. 

Output, orders and exports 
were flat in the third quarter, 
but now the CBI expects 
industrial output in the final 
three months of the year to be 
I per cent higher than in the 
same quarter of 1985. 

CBI economists have 
changed their forecast for the 
year of a 0.5 per cent drop in 
manufacturing output to a 0.5 
per cent rise. 

Mr David Wjggiesworth, 
chairman of the CBl's eco- 
nomic situation committee 
said: “The evidence of an 
upturn after the disappoint- 
ingly flat trend in the first nine 
months of the year is en- 
couraging, particularly the im- 
proved prospects for exports. 
However, the consumer boom 
is tending to suck in imports 
rather titan benefit manufac- 
turers here in Britain." 

The CBI estimates that 45 
per cent of any rise in con- 
sumer spending is met by 
imports, and that this propor- 
tion rises as discretionary 
spending increases. 

Industry's optimism does 
not extend to jobs. The CBI 
expects job losses in manufac- 
turing to accelerate from 6,000 
a month to 8,000 until 
January. 

Eight per cent of the 
survey's respondents plan to 


The chairman. Sir Stanley 
Grinstead, has been criticized 
in the City for failing to sell the 
Liggett business before tbe 
price-cutting began. 


He said: “We are delighted 
with the positive impact 
which the move into the US \ 
market has had on our opera- ] 
lions. It has enabled us to i 
establish a strong trading base 
in tbe US at the same time as 
securing vital wines and spir- 
its distribution arrange- 
ments.’' 


Halpem and Conran 
resolve their dispute 

By Onr City Staff 


Mr Eric Franlds, analyst at 
the broker Phillips & Drew, 
said the sale of Liggett had 
fetched less than expected. 
“But I do not think it was 
worth holding out for a little 
bit extra. The Liggett ac- 
quisition has been a good one 
for the group, leaving them 
with some valuable busi- 
nesses." 

Grand Met shares were lp 
ahead at 436p. 


The long-running dispute 
between Sir Ralph Halpem, 
chairman of Burton Group, 
and Sir Terence Conran, 
chairman of Storehouse, over 
promises made during Bur- 
ton's bid for Debenhams last 
year has been resolved. 

Conran Design Group will 
redesign the Harvey Nichols 
flagship store and about 400 
Burton menswear stores. 
Storehouse win also be offered 
space in tbe 66 Debenhams 
stores, but probably about 10 
per cent rather than the 20 per 
cent envisaged under the orig- 
inal agreement 
The original 20 per cent 
option on Debenhams shares 
granted to Sir Terence was 
dropped some time ago. 

Sir Ralph and Sir Terence 
fell out over their deal when 


the Habitat-Mothercare group 
merged with British Home 
Stores to form Storehouse. 

The space bring made avail- 
able to Storehouse, as Deben- 
hams stores are modernized, 
will not be for BHS mer- 
chandise but could include 
Habitat, Richards, and 
Mothercare. 

Sir Terence said yesterday 
he was very pleased the issue 
had been happily resolved as it 
“was uncomfortable for both 
of us". 


Debenhams is meanwhile 
continuing with its galleria 
plans without Conran. The 
sixty-seventh store opens in 
Preston on Friday and has 
been designed around the 
galleria concept. Fitch & Co is 
the design company involved. 


M&S interim 
profit 13% 
np at £155m 

By Oar Qfy Staff 

Spencer, 


Marks and 
Britain's premier retailer, 
made pretax profits in tbe half j 
to September 27 of 1 
.6 million, a rise of 13.1 
per cent on the previous first 
half. 

Profits rose 14.8 per cent in 
Britain and 163 per cent in 
Europe, but the Canadian 
subsidiary made a loss of £1.7 
million compared with a 
profit of £700,000. 

Lord Rayner, the chairman, 
said British clothing sales were 
good even though poor sum- 
mer weather depressed sales of 
seasonal lutes. 

The initial launch of fur- 
niture has been well received 
and will be in 21 stores by the 
end of this year. 

The charge card is 
' 13,000 new subscribers a

more than 1.3 million 
cardholders. 

The interim dividend was 
increased to 1.4p from 1.25p.

Home loans go to market 


The first folly 
backed security in Britain is 
set to be launched by National 
Home Loans Corporation, the 
specialistmortgageleiider, be- 
fore Christmas and will mark 
the start of a secondary mort- 
gage market. 

Mr Richard Lacy, foe 
corporation's chief executive, 
said yesterday the company 
had more than £300 million in 
home loans on its books and 
was ready to securitize part of 
its lending* The security was 
likely to be in the form of a

The expense ratio was running

Mr Lacy said £286 million

rived from life companies, 
while £33 million came from 
local anfoorities. 




Wouldn't it be marvellous if you could choose how much you 
pay each month in mortgage repayment? 

It is possible. John Charcot's new flexible mortgage is quite 
unique. 

It combines the advantages of a fixed interest/ floating 
interest mortgage with the possibility of reducing the monthly 
payment without prior notice. 

Unlike other mortgages, which either have a fixed interest 
rate or one that floats up and down depending on the market our 
new mortgage gives you a choice. 

You may opt for a floating rate and then change your mortgage 
to a fixed rate at a month's notice. More interesting, yon may opt 
to defier up to 30% of the payments whenever you wish. 

This means you can choose to pay less if the interest rate rises. 
Or if your other commitments rise. 

If your other expenses come down, or your income climbs 
temporarily you may opt to pay more. 

Our new mortgage is available to everyone who is looking to 
borrow between £15.001 and £250.000. up to 3.5 times a single 
income. 

It is available to purchase properties up to 100% of their 
value, although sums up to 70% can be borrowed without a status 
enquiry. 

In short, if your income is flexible, if yonr outgoings are 
flexible, if you just don’t know enough about your future earnings, 
or even if you just don’t want to be tied down to a fixed monthly 
repayment, then our new mortgage is for you.

an appointment.

increase investment in plant 
and machinery over foe next 
12 months, compared with 5 
per cent at the time of the last 
survey in July. But increased 
efficiency and labour-saving 
remain the predominant 
motives. 

As a result, the CBI has 
joined Midland Bank in argu- 
ing that productivity is rising 
faster than official figures 
allow. 

The larger companies are 
more optimistic than the rest 
of industry about orders, out- 
put, exports and investment — 
though not jobs, the study 
reveals. The consumer prod- 
ucts sector is increasingly 
more optimistic than en- 
gineering and heavy-goods 
industries. 

The CBl's report covens 
more than half of the manu- 
facturing industry and has a 
good record for predicting 
short-term changes in output. 
The latest survey was dosing 
just as the run on sterling 
forced a rise in interest rates. 

In August the CBI cut its 
overall growth forecast to 2 
per cent in 19S6 and 2.6 per 
cent in 1987, although it then 
expected a 0.5 per cent fall in 
interest rates by tbe year end. 

But the fall in sterling 
improved competitiveness, in 
terms of unit labour costs, by S 
per cent in the third quarter, 
and the CBI is likely to revise 
its overall economic forecasts 
upwards again next month. 

Tbe survey confirms the 
CBI view that inflation has 
turned up. More companies 
are expecting to raise prices. 
Exporters also hope to raise 
prices, which could lessen 
gains in output. 

• The CBI industrial trends 
survey is available as an on- 
line computer database in 
conjunction with Cisi- 
Wharton.

Coffee is 
best 

for growth’ 

By Lawrence Lever 

Coffee has the most poten- 
tial for growth on the London 
Commodity : Exchange, 
according to a MORI survey 
of LCE members. However, 
the fortunes of cocoa Futures 
are declining. 

The survey, published yes- 
terday. drew a high response, 
with SO of the 61 authorized 
floor members of the LCE 

taking part. 

The LCE trades cocoa, cof- 
fee and sugar futures and 
plans to introduce traded op- 
tions, with a new category of 
membership for options deal- 
ers, next year. 

It is also likely to allow 
“locals” — individuals trading 
on their own account — access 
to the market 

An immediate result of the 
survey is the appointment of a 
full-time LCE marketing 
director next Monday. 

Sixty per cent of the 
survey's sample said dial they 
wanted the LCE to increase its 
marketing effort in order to 
boost the ICE'S liquidity. 

Forty six per centsaid dial 
the present volume of busi- 
ness in coffee was greater now 
than in previous years. Con- 
versely, half of the sample said 
that the volume of cocoa 

business rWlineri. 

Other conclusions reached 
by the survey were; 

• LCE members put an av- 
erage 50 per cent of their 
business through the LCE. 

• Factors influencing the up- 
turn or downturn of business 
in a particular commodity are 
extraneous to the LCE, sudt as 
exchange rate fluctuations. 

• London's main advantage 
over foreign commodity 
competitors is its convenience 
in terms of its location and 
time zone. Disadvantages of 
the LCE focused on lack of 
liquidity. 

• The LCE members prefer 
an open plan trading floor 
system, although opinion is 
divided between having trad- 
ing rings or a pit system. 


Outlook promising for 
Smallbone as interim 
profit goes up by 205% 


Smallbone, the fitted kitchen 
and bathroom company, yes- 
terday announced a 205 per 
cent increase in pretax profits 
in its first set of results as a 
public company. 

Profits before tax for the six 
months (o August 31 were 
£387,000. compared with 
£1 27,000 in the corresponding 
period last year. Profits in the 
first half last year were, how- 
ever, unusually depressed. 

The company, which came 
to the USM in June this year, 
expects a further profits in-

crease in its traditionally 
stronger second half 

Yesterday's figures reveal 
also an exceptional item — a 
provision of £197,000 for 
potential income tax liabil- 
ities. This has the effect of 
reducing the profits for the 
year to February 28, 1986 — 
the latest yearly figures pub- 
lished in the prospectus — 
from the £722,000 staled to 
£525,000. 

Mr Chris Wilson, the fi- 
nance director, said that the 
provision had been accounted 


Tin nations defer 
action over crisis 


Jakarta (Reuter) - Leading 
tin-producing nations have 
deferred for a month any 
action to end- the current 
market crisis. Dr Subroto, the 
Indonesian mines and energy 
minister, said yesterday at the 
end of a two-day meeting. 

The Association of Tin 
Producing Countries, howev- 
er, said in a statement that the 
seven members would try to 
achieve a predictable and 
orderly depletion of surplus 
stocks. 

Dr Subroto, the present 
chairman of the association, 
told a press conference that 
the group's executive commit- 
tee had been assigned to study 
various options and to make 
recommendations in a month. 

World tin prices have 
slumped to about $5,700 
(about £4,051) a toane, less 
than half of what it was a year 
ago, as surplus production and 
overhanging stocks glut the 
metal market. The tin crash 
has caused big lay-ofls and 
mine closures worldwide. 

B razil and China, which 
took part in the meeting, 
pledged to co-operate with 



efforts to stabilize the tin 
market, according to the state- 
ment. However they made no 
commitment to join the 
group. Dr Subroto said that 
surplus stocks could be deplet- 
ed in three years. 

Another option being con- 
sidered is a Malaysian propos- 
al for both producers and 
consumers to use the Kuala 
Lumpur Tin Market, to create 
a reference price in the ab- 
sence of tin trading at the 
Loudon Metal Exchange, he 
said.

per cent and the company's 
newly aquired bathroom 
wholesaling subsidiary — BC j

£128,000 to profits. 

The company is opening a 
pilot kitchen operation in 
New York next March and is 
contemplating two further ac- 
quisitions in related fields.

Brokers halt India’s 
biggest stock market 


Dutch company UK Computer Press Awards 


Bombay (Reuter) — Stock- 
brokers halted trading on 
India's biggest stock exchange 
yesterday in protest against a 
ban on forward trading. 

The ban was imposed after 
raids by income tax officials 
on the offices of several bro- 
kers. 

Exchange authorities had 
kepi the market open for 
trading but ordered that all 
deals should be on a spot 
delivery basis and paid in 
cash. 

Brokers could not say if 
trading would resume today 


on the exchange, which trans- 
acts a third of the value of 
shares traded on India’s 14 
stock exchanges. 

Trading was halted for two 
days last week after more than 
500 officials from the revenue 
department raided the offices 
and homes of more than 20 
brokers, seizing undeclared 
documents, cash and jewel- 
lery. 

There was no trading on 
Monday as brokers settled 
business done in the post two 
weeks, exchange officials said. 


to open plant 

Northern Ireland received 
its fourth Dutch-owned indus- 
trial project yesterday when 
Van Oeric Alberton, a seat- 
belt maker, announced plans 
to open a factory in North 
Down. The site is near the 
Dundonald plant of General 
Motors, its main customer. 

The Dutch company sup- 
plies General Motors with 
seat-belt webbing. Local ex- 
perience of textile manufac- 
ture was a deriding factor in 
the choice of location, Mr 
Gerard Sleepers, the managing 
director of Alberton, said. 
Initially the company will 
employ 28 people.

New towns 
will pass 
£lbn sales 

By Judith Hnntley, 
Commercial . 

Property ComsimdeDt 

The CoMmfasiea for the 
New Towns, the quango 
responsible for seflmg the 
property assets of the English 
new towns, says ft will reach 
the £1 bBlioa mark fa fire 
years’ time, beating British 
Airways fat the raze of politic ; 
assets sold. 

The chairman of the j 
commissioa, S fr NeD Shields, | 
said it had sold £93.7 milli on j 
of assets in the year to March | 
31, 1986, £17 mnifaa above 
the Government's target. 

A farther £75 nriUkm trf 
sales were agreed, of which j 
£20 milHo w were completed 
early in the aew financial year. 
The Commission has sold 
more than £500 mSBian of 
property ranee 1979. 

There is still a long way to 
go hi the sale of new town 
assets. The Commission's es- , 
tate was rained at £721 nuDin | 
before including assets from ; 
Basihkm, the Essex new town. : 

It will, however, be mcreas- 
ingiy hard to sefi so ranch 
property as die assets remain- 
ing are less commercially 
attractive. There wifl be por- 
ticriar difficulties in disporing 
of assets at Runcorn, the new 
town near Liverpool, which 
has been hard hit by recession. 


Bingiey and 

Progressive 

to merge 

By Robert Rodwetl' 

The Progressive Building 
Society, one of Northenl 
Ireland's two indigenous 
buflding societies, is to merge 
with the Bradford & Bingiey 
Building Society, in the 
United Kingdom, to prepare 
for competition with high 
street banks. 

The board of the Progres- 
sive • met Mr Stephen 
Spilsbury, general manager of 
Bradford & Bingiey, in Beifest 
yesterday. The 25,000 mem- 
bers at the Progressive will be 
asked to approve a merger at a 
special general meeting. 

The society, which has nine 
braoches, has assets of about 
£100 millio n and commands 4 
or 5 per cent of the Northern 

Ireland mortgage market The 

Bradford & Bingiey has two 
branches in Northern Ireland 
and 250 throughout Britain. 

The three biggest societies 
operating in Northern Ireland, 
the Halifax, Abbey National 
and Nationwide, have about 
55 per cent of the Ulster 
market. 

The Progressive has wanted 
a marriage with a larger 
mainland society for about 
two years, ever since the scope 
of the new legislation, which 
next year wifl lead to the 
second Big Bang, became 
dear.

US ha cking 
grows for 
Japanese 
IMF chief 


F^BaJteyW®™ 

Washington 


The continuing European 
railure to agree on a eandMai* 


..J ag ? e on a candidate 
to head the InternationaJ 
Monetary Fund has produced 

?hln U “S^ 11 of su PPOrt in 
Sw 0 ""*®"" for breaking 
wuh tradition and naminp a 
Japanese officiaL 

American officials . con- 
nrmed yesterday that the 
Reagan Administration may 
have to use its de facto vote to 
break the stalemate which has 
developed over the can- 
didacies of Mr H Onno 
Ruding, the Dutch finance 
minister, who is supported by 
Britain, West Germany and 
? t 5. er nations, and of M 
Michel Camdessus, governor 
of the Bank of France, fa- 
voured by a group of smaller 
nations. 

Support is growing within 
the Administration in favour 
of a Japanese candidate, 
according to a high-level' 
American official, who sgid 
the name of Mr Toyoo 
Goyohten, vice- minister of 
finance, is often mentioned. 

In recent weeks, newspapers 
have been carrying articles 
urging the American govern- 
ment and European nations to 
break with tradition and allow 
the Japanese to taka their 
rightful position as a world 
economic power by beading 
the multilateral institution. - 

Fo r all its wealth, Japan 
remains too insular in world 
finance, according to the New 
York Times. 

The US. which traditionally, 
names the head of the World 
Bank, has deferred to Europe 
on the selection of a successor 
to M Jacques de Larosier, the 
sixth European director of the 
IMF. But. as the stalemate 
over a successor has length- 
ened, the Administration's 
impatience has grown. 

It was even suggested earlier 
by some officials that Mr Paul 
Volcker, the independent 
chairman of the US Federal 
Reserve Board, should be put 
forward as a candidate if 
Europe failed to act. 

For the past 40 years there 
has been an unwritten rule 
that an American would head 
the World Bank, and a Euro- 
pean the IMF. At the annual 
meetings in September of the 
bank and the IMF, it was 



Onno Ruding; favoured 

by Britain 

suggested for the first time 
that a Japanese candidate 
should be considered. 

But Mr Kiichi Miyazawa, 
the finance minister, said that, 
although Japan has several 
well-qualified candidates, 
none was interested in leaving 
domestic politics to take the 
job. 

Indeed, although the sugges- 
tion was taken seriously by 
world finance ministers, most 
said it would be difficult to 
break with tradition the first 
time round and name a Japa- 
nese. “Maybe next time said 
a high-level IMF official. 

US officials said yesterday 
that Japan would have to be 
pressed into taking the 
responsibility that goes with 
more authority in world af- 
fairs and the IMF directorship 
was one way of doing this. 


STOCK MARKET REPORT 


A ghostly atmosphere in 
traders’ brave new world 


By Carol Leonard 


The London stock market 
experienced its first full day in 
the brave new world yes- 
terday, with the traditional 
trading floor of the exchange 
described as a “ghost town” as 
market-makers increasingly 
made use of their comput- 
erized screens in their new, hi- 
tech offices. 

A break-down in Topic, the 
Stock Exchange’s electronic 
share price information ser- 
vice, for almost three-quarters 
of an hour at lunch-time, 
provided the only technical 
hiccup. 

Stockbrokers who persisted 


Atired Lyons- 
due for a re-rating?

JAN FEB MAR APR MAY JUN JUL AUG SEP OCT 


• Baras Anderson, the 

HimMfi wrhflnt Mat jn 

Manchester, looks cheap. 
The company, already a h- 
censed deposit-taker, is on 
the brink of buying a prorm- 
dal stockbroker, which 
wffl give it membership of the 
Stock Exchange. Yes- 
terday, its shares held steady 
at78p. 


in using their boxes aroond 
the perimeter of the trading 
floor complained about the 
lack of atmosphere and said 
they found it .almost impos- 
sible to get any “led” for foe 
mood of the market. 

One market man com- 
mented: ‘it’s been very quiet 
and there just aren't any 
stories around.** 

The FT 30 Share index 
dosed near its lowest level of 
the day, down 2.1 at 1,255.6. 
The broader-based FT-SE 100 
index which opened a fraction 
higher, up 0.1 of a point, also 
dosed lower, down 2.6 at 
1,583.6. 

Gilts also saw little action. 
They opened about £% higher 
at foe longer end and then 
drifted lower, doting £*fc eas- 


ier in the shorts and mixed in 
the longs. 

Among leading equities, 
Beecham gained 5pto 423p on 
confirmation of the exclusive 
story in this column earlier 
this mouth that it is to seO its 
soft drinks division to Britan- 
nia Soft Drinks in a £120 

milli on deal. 

Cadbury Schweppes also 
gamed 5p to 192p on news ofa 
joint venture with Coca-Cola, 
GEC put on 6p to J70p, ICT 
5p to 1074p and Glaxo 6p to 
916p. Headed for lower 
ground were Thorn EMI, 5p 
worse at 449p and Lacas down 
7p to 446p. 

Kleinwort Grieveson, the 
broker, was a big buyer of 
ADIed-Lyons, the food and 
drinks group, snapping up 
more than 1 million shares for 
clients in a £3 mini mi spend- 
ing spree. Its dealings made up 
a si gnifican t slice of the total 
turnover of 3-2 million shares 
traded in the company yes- 
terday and lifted the shares by 
6p to 307p. 

Reports, however, that 
Kiemwort had just published 
a circular on the group were 
wrong. Mr Victor MacColl, a 
leading leisure analyst at 
Kleinwort, said: “It's just that

we think a lot of other broken 
have got their sums wrong on 
the Hiram Walker purchase 
and we think foe shares are 
very cheap.” 

Kleinwort said that most 
brokers have calculated their 
1987 profit forecasts for the 
group by adding in 51 percent 
ofHtram Walker’s profits. Bat 
it said that if a parent com- 
pany has control of another 
company's assets — Allied 
owns 51 per cent of Hiram — 
then, according to British 
accountancy principles, it is 
entitled to include 100 per 
cent of the subsidiary's profits. 

On this basis, Kleinwort is 
now forecasting profits for 
Allied of £324 million for the 
year to February, 1987 and 
£434 million for 1988 — 
compared with predictions 
from other brokers of about 
£370 million for 1988. 

Elsewhere in the brewing 
sector. Grand Metropolitan 
firmed just l_5p to 43&5p on 
the news that it has sold 
Liggett Myers, its US generic 
cigarette business, to Bennett 
S Le Bow for $137 million 
(£97 million). The price dis- 
appointed some Oty brokers, 
but the foot that the sale 
includes the transfer of all 
legal liability is expected to 
put the company under a 
more positive spotlight during 
the next couple of days. 

Gnmness put on 2J>p to 
317.5p after a profits up- 
grading for 1987 by L Messel, 
the broker, from £427 minio n 
to £465 minion. The new 
estimate puts the company on 
a prospective p/e for next year 
of 9.5. The shares are expected 
to get an additional boost on 
November 14 when the com- 
pany gets an ADR facility, via 
a sponsored issue by the Bank 
of New York. 

Matthew Brown spurted an- 
other 13p to 568p and 
Buttonwood 32p to 652p. 

Stores were mixed with 
Sears, the Selfridges to 
Mappin & Webb retail group, 
once again the most talked 
about stock-The latest chatter 
is that several institutional 
fund managers have been 
buying the stock for their 
nal accounts, claim mg to 
w something the rest ofthe 
market does not know. The 
shares responded by edging up 
0.5p to 132p. 

Moss Bros, the clothes hirer 
and retailer which is sitting on 
a valuable Covent Garden 
site, was the highest riser, 
climbing by 17p to 505p and 
Aqutscutana improved 15p to 
215p. Marts and Spescer, 
meanwhile, slipped 6p to 
195p, Body Shop 5p to 665p 
and Burton 2p to 268p. 

Oils drifted lower, amid a 
general feeling of nervousness

( FUTURES AND OPTIONS ) 

Funds wake up with the Bang 



With so many new market- 
makers appearing on the 
London equities scene after 
Big Bang, the Stock Ex- 
change’s traded options mar- 
ket seems set for a period of 
explosive growth. 

As more and more com- 
panies take bigger equity po- 
sitions (m to their books, the 
need for managing that risk 
grows apace. Options in in- 
dmdttal shares mid the Finan- 
cial Times-Stock Exchange 
(FT-SE) 100-share index pro- 
vide one of the easiest ways to 
cover this exposure. 

According to Mr Bernard 
Reed of the Stock Exchange's 
options development group, 
about half of the 35 leading 
market-makers be has spoken 
to are now folly geared up to 

operate in the options market 
and the other half are prepar- 
ing to do so. 

In addition, a new breed of 
“pure” options trader is com- 
ing to light O'Connor, a 
Chicago options specialist, 
has just joined the Exchange 
and discussions are being foam 
with another American com- 
pany interested in signing up. 

Big Bang compounds a year 
of rapid growth for the Stock 
Exchange's options market 
that has seen average daily 
volume grow by about 140 per 
cent. 

At times the explosion has 
proved too much for the 
Exchange's computers. The 


en ti r e market foiled to open 
one day in the spring when the 
bargain matching system was 
befog apgyded , and die over- 
load sights flashed red alert mi 
several other occasions. 

The options development 
group da fats the problems 
have been ironed on and says 
the system now in place can 
cope with almost anything the 
market has to throw at it The 
capacity is 1 00,000 contracts a 
day and a system to cope with 
200,000 contracts is in the 
workshop. The volmne is run- 
ning at an average 20,000 lots 
a day, although a lofty record 
of 68,000 contracts was set on 
October 10 when the TSB 
made fts debut. 

Part of the growth has come 

from a gradual awakening of 
institutional investors to the 
uses of the options market. An 
options salesman with one 
leading securities bon y said : 
Two years ago most institu- 
tions didn't want to look at the 
options market Today, they 
are still sot all using it by a 
long way, but most of them 
have accepted the need to 
know what’s going on there.” 

At the same time, the more 
progressive fond mana ge r s 
who stack their toe in earfier. 
thaw the rest are now wading' 
is deeper. 

Mr Reed says a similar 
wave of interest is now 
developing among tire puWk, 
althoug h many would question 


flip wisdom of marketing such 
leveraged and therefore vol- 
atile instruments to 
investors. He reports an 
astonishing response to a 
Stock Exchange advertise- 
ment for an options informa- 
tion l eaflet ptaed at the time 
of the TSB branch.

As the volmne of options 
grows, so nadoubtedly win

Theoretically, this too is 
still a long way off. Average 
turnover in the options market 
is only 6 per cent of equity 
bargains and it is rare for the 
figure to exceed 8 per cent of 
any one share’s issued capital.

number of bullish brokets' 
circulars which are expected 
to be published in the mext 
couple of days. The City is 
forecasting profits of at least 
£10.5 million for the current 
year. 

A ruling by the courts in 
Florida that insurance com- 
panies must cut their pre- 
mium rates knocked some of 
the wind out of Royal Insur- 
ance, which tumbled 12p to 
832p. The fell wipes more 
than £26 million off Royal's 
market capitalization. Fears 
about the effects of the ruling 
on Royal's profits were, how- 
ever, bring dismissed by some 
analysts in London. 

Mr David Threadgold, the 
insurance specialist at Laing & 
Cruickshank, the broker, said* 
“It’s not even a storm in a tea 
cup, more a storm in a saucer. 
It’s not a state in which Royal

COMMENT Kenneth Fleet 


A statutory regime 
stalks the market 


There is a belief — strenghened with 
every tortuous phase in the Financial 
Services Bill’s progress through Par- 
liament — that the City, sooner or 
later, will be patrolled by statutory 
commissioners on Government 
leashes. This development is 
prophesied by some with resignation, 
by others with appro vaL 
Politicians will be the ultimate 


this background the panel felt com- 
pelled to "deplore the fact that neither 
Hill Samuel, Gazenove nor Midland 


Bank consulted the Panel executive." 

Later in the judgement the Panel 
said: 


“The frequent involvement of 
Cazenove as professional advisers in 
bid situations makes their lapse the 


judges. A future Labour government more surprising. Given the emphasis 


is committed already to the cause of 
more statutory authority. For their 
part the Conservatives are likely to 
respond to the first financial scandal 
that threatens to be electorally damag- 
ing with a clone of the American 
Securities and Exchange Commission. 

While waiting for one or the other, 
the self-regulatory system will come 
under pressure from lawyers, expen- 
sively hired by leading City firms who 
either reach for them habitually, that 
is,the Americans, or resort to them 
when their clients* — and their own — 
interest is likely to be better served by 
the letter than the spirit. 

If you do not believe this 1 refer you 
to the case of Turner & Newall and AE 
which so exercised the Takeover 
Panel (interpreter and upholder of the 
City Code) that it felt compelled to 
censure eminent firms — Hill Samuel, 
Midland Bank, another dealing bank, 
and Cazenove — for the way they 
saved AE from T & Ws unwanted 
grasp. 

Hill Samuel Group agreed with HS 
Investment Management that HSIM 
would neither assent shares held for 
discretionary clients until the offer 
became unconditional nor sell in the 
market. HS Group would make good 
any shortfall between the eventual 
sale price and the 240p cash alter- 
native offer from T&N. 

HS Group addressed itself to the 
question of whether disclosure was 
required and concluded that it was 
not. The Panel judgement stated: 

“The Panel is at a loss to 
understand how HSG came to this 
conclusion and deplores the feet that 
HSG did not test that conclusion by 
consulting tbe Panel executive as the 
Code urges that practitioners should 
do in any case of doubt** 

The arrangement with the two 
banks was similar. 

Cazenove, the brokers, said 
that it consulted its lawyers and 
were given the opinion that disclosure 
was not required. A second opinion 
agreed with the first 

Midland's lawyers were of the same 
mind. The second bank (not Midland) 
took the view that the transaction 
should be disclosed and did disclose 
it Hill Samuel and Cazenove were 
aware of the second bank' s conclusion 
that disclosure was required. Against 


laid by the Code on the importance of 
the spirit as well as the letter of the 
Code and on the Panel as the proper 
source of interpretations the seeking 
of legal advice cannot be regarded as a 
substitute for consultation.'* 

In other words all the offenders 
behaved exactly as if we had a 
statutory code already where legal 
opinion is all. 


Great gilt test 


Today is an interesting first test for the 
new gilt-edged market. Applications 
have to be in by 10am for the new £1 
billion of Treasury 10 per cent 
Convertible 1991. From the Bank of 
England's point of view, it would be 
gratifying to see the new stock ofT to a 
healthy start. No SEAQ failures in our 
market, old boy! 


Yesterday, however, it looked as if 
the gilt-edged market, where there are 
now 27 market-makers where once 
there were two-and-a-half jobbers, 
was behaving as in days of yore. Then 
the market’s trick, in advance ofa new 
gilt, was to drive the market down, 
make the stock at the issue price 
relatively unattractive and sub- 
sequently buy it from the Govern- 
ment Broker at a bargain price.The 
manouevre would be completed by 
the jobbers driving the market up 
again and unloading stock at hand- 
some profits to themselves. 


The behaviour in the market yes- 
terday made one strongly suspect that 
two of the big market-makers were 
prepared to play the old game of 
shaking the apples off the tree. There 
is some risk in this, largely however 
theoretical, in that with 25 other 
market-makers around, they might 
not be able subsequently to buy the 
stock on their own, preferred terms. 


The other big question, is what do 
the smaller market-makers do in such 
a situation? Do they not put in bids 
this morning because they regard the 
stock as temporarily unattractive at 
the minimum tender price of £96 ft 
per cent? Or, fearing they may be left 
with nothing do, they play safe and 
bid? 


It is a test of the new telephone 
market — and a test of nerves.

Sunday, October 26th, was Bus Deregulation Day 
(outside London). 

This simply means that there will no longer be 
unnecessary restrictions over starting a new bus service. 

It’s a radical step so. naturally, it’s one which comes 
with some conditions. But provided you meet those 
conditions and have safe and suitable vehicles, you can 
start 

You don’t need traditional buses. A coach, a minibus, 
or even a taxi will do. Any vehicle, in fact, which meets 
the safety requirements for the job you have in mind. 

In order to register a new service, you will need a 
Public Service Vehicle (PSV) operator's licence, and 
you must have adequate maintenance arrangements. 
Whoever drives your bus must also hold a PSV driver's 
licence. 

The Transport Act 1985 means that bus operators 
have much more freedom to run local bus services. 

A broad network of deregulated services has already 
been set up to meet consumer needs. 

But in this competitive environment, there are 
plenty of opportunities for new entrants. 

Perhaps you could find a gap in the current services. 
Outperform an existing operator on price and quality. 
Provide a service that's more tailored to local needs. Or 
bid fora subsidised local authority bus contract. 

So long as you are within the safety and licensing 

requirements, opportunities are now there. 

If you are interested, complete this coupon and 
you'll be sent free booklets which will answer your 
questions in detail.

high standards. 

It produced interim sales 
growth of 1 3 per cent during a 
period when other retailers 
struggled more obviously 
against the effects of cola 
spring weather. Yet 13 per 
cent compares with IS per 
cent sales growth this time 
Last year and so the City

Taxable profits were in line 
with expectations at £155.6 
million, leaving the company 
on course for rail-year profits 
of £415' million to £420 
mini on. Higher expecta t i o ns 
of £430 million-plus, made 
after 1985-86 results were 
announced in May, have 
already been pared back.

sales this year. Food sales 
were also gained from BHS 
and Woofworth pulling out of 
this area. 

The expansion and 
modernisation programme 
continues but will cost 
slightly less than expected m 
the current year. This year's 
spend will be about £270 
million against a budgeted 
£300 million and will add 
450,000 square feet. 

The switch from receiving 
to paying interest is not 
expected to happen for an- 
other 18 months as Marks 
ploughs on with its £1.5 
billion, four-year 

programme. 

Interest received fell to 
£2.6 million from £5-2 mil- 
lion due to capital spending 
and the cost ofbuying out the 
minority in the Canadian 
subsidiary. 

Canada produced a loss of 
£1.7 million against a profit 
of £700,000 because of a 
C$1.8 million (£920,000) in- 
terest charge from the minor- 
ity buyout, store opening 
costs and a sluggish retail 
outlook in Canada. Turnover 
in local currency terms, how- 
ever, showed 11 per cent 
growth. 

Marks has several new 
things on the go including 
home fu rnishing s, mail order, 
out-of-town developments. 
Full year earnings pear share, 
boosted by a lower tax charge, 
should be around 10 J pence 
giving a prospective p/e ratio 
of under 19. The pru* is not 
expensive, bnt 

outperformance is not ex- 
pected in the short-term.

3. The trading results of overseas subsidiaries 
have been translated using average rates of 
exchange ruling during the financial yeat This 


policy was adopted last year at the full year 
stage. Last years half year figures, where 
relevant, have been restated 
4. The Canadian results, as previously; cover the 
26 week period to 31 July 1986. Expressed in 
local currency terms, Canadian stores showed 
an increase in turnover of 1 1 .0%. Losses 
before taxation were CS3-5m compared to a 
profit of CSl.4m last year. The loss of CS3.5m 
is arrived at after charging interest of C$1. 8m 
on a C$3 5.0m loan made by Marks and 
Spencer p-Lc. to Canada. No interest was 
charged last yean 
“Tie Canadian 


minority relates to the period prior to this. 

5. Financial Activities include the results of the 
Charge card, leasing and insurance activities. 
These results are after taking into account the 
profits on the sale of the leasing subsidiary 
(see note 6). The losses ofSt Michael Financial 
Services for the 2 b weeks were£4.0m com- 
pared to £4.8m last yean 

6. Net other income comprises profits of £ 2.6m 
arising from the sale of a leasing subsidiary 
less losses of £0.4m on the disposal of fixed 
assets (last year nil). 

7. The taxation figure for the first half of last year 
has been adjusted to reflect the actual rate of 
taxation on the year's profit The ILK. taxation 
charge is calculated at 3 5% (last year 40%).

In (he U JC. Clothing sales were good even though poor Summer 
weather depressed the sales of seasonal lines. The Homeware Division * 
continued its strong advance while Food sales showed 1 satisfactoiy 
increases with no Easter trading included in this period. Volume growth in 
Clothing was 1 0%, Homeware 1 6% and Foods 8%.The overall pnee 

inflation was 3%. , , _ 

The programme of footage development and modernisation or our 
UK. stores if well under way. U JC sales floor space increased by 1 50,000 
square feet over the period (+4%). 40% ofU-K- footage is now m the 
modernised format , , 

Profitability has been maintained despite the increased costs 
associated with modernisation, additional footage and computerisation. 
The Marks and Spencer Chargccard has in excess of 1. 3 million 


cardholders and accounts for 11% of ILK. turn o vet 

European stores continue to make good progress. This month we 
opened a new store at Velizy II m Paris, our tenth European store. 

In the year to 31st March 1987, we plan to add a total of 450,000 
square feet of new trading space in the UK. Our first edge-of-town store at 
Metro Centre, Gates head' opened on 14th October Over half our UK. 
footage will have been modernised by March 1987, 

A direct selling experiment for Homeware started in October using the 
Chargecaid mailing list- 

The initial launch of furniture was well received by customers and 
expansion is planned to further stores. 

We look forward to a satisfactory second half-yeai; both in the UK. and 
abroad.

Wolseley 


Wolsdey must be the biggest 
company you have never 
heard of Rir the record, its 
annual turnover is nearly 
£750,000 and pretax profits 
last year were more than £50 
million. Compound pretax 
profits growth since 1982 has 
been 46 percent 

Its main activity is the 
distribution of plumbing and 
healing equipment; it has 
significant manufacturing 
activities in engineering, plas- 
tics and agricultural machine- 
ry- 

Making itself better known 
has not been a priority; the 
philosophy has been to con- 
centrate on running the busi- 
ness. Nevertheless, it was of 
some concern to Wolseley 
that it narrowly missed being 
classified as a gamma stock. 

Within the trade, things 
like a conference for 3.000 
plumbers in Jersey has helped 
to promote the group. The 
feet that Wolseley does not 
sell to the general public 
contributes to its anonimity 
but a new logo (a huge tap on 
a blue background) on the 
400 lorries serving its British 
outlets wil] make it more 
familiar. 

Although not usually trea- 
ted as sudi, Wolseley nkes to 
thinks of itself as an indus- 
trial holding company. How- 
ever, unlik e others in the 
sector, it takes pride in buy- 
ing companies with genuine 
growth prospects. 

In the Britain and the US, 
growth has been both organic 
and by acquisition. In 1985- 
86, underlying growth of 1 1 
per cent was overshadowed 
by an increase of nearly 60 
per cent for the group as a 
whole. 

Wolseley has been pleas- 
antly supnsed by the continu- 
ing opportunities in its home 
market in recent years. It 
could enjoy a boost if the 
Government primes the pre- 
election pump by spending 
on refurbishment work since 
this accounts for more than 
half of the British business- 

However, with an eye to 
the future, Wolseley is look- 


1985 1986 

ing to the US. In a frag- 
mented market, it attributes 
its success to employing good 
people who can apply a tested 
formula in any region. 

The 1986-87 year will be 
one of consolidation rather 
than frenetic corporate activ- 
ity. Wolseley should make 
£69 million pretax (earnings 
per share of 46p). 

The shares are selling on a 
small premium to the market 
but interest in them should 
increase, particularly since 
British analysts have had the 
chance recently to see the 
American operations at first 
hand. 

British Car 
Anction Group 

Most people might consider 
that car auctions arc defi- 
nitely at the seedy end of the 
auto business. But what can- 
not be denied is that they 
have been a consistently 
profitable business for British 
Car Auction Group. 

Yesterday, the group an- 
nounced record results for the 
twelfth year in succession. 
Pretax profits were £13.8 
million for the year to August 
I, up 36.5 per cent on the 
previous year, while turnover 
was up 51^ percent to £89.6 
million. 

BCA’s big success story has 
been the build up of its US 
car auction business where 
profits more than doubled 
last year. 

As in Britain, it can pitch 
for business from the motor 
manufacturers, car hire com- 
panies and companies with 
executive fleets. 

If a buyer is found for its 
US leasing business. BCA 
will be once more a pure 
auction business except for 
its 44.9 per cent interest in 
First Security Group. 

The scope for growth in the 
US is still enormous and 
Dennis Sloman, analyst at 
the stockbroker Anderson & 
Co, believes pretax profits 
should reach £ 1 7 million next 
year. At the current price of 
152p, the shares are on an 
undemanding prospective 
multiple of 10.8.

R.NIVISON & C 9 


O N THE EYE of the closure 
of the firm on the 
7th November, the Nivison 
family would like to express 
their profound gratitude to all 
present and former members 
of the firm and its Clients for 
their great loyalty over very 
many years. 

We are saddened that the 
changes now taking place in 
the City of London have made 
inevitable the closure of a 
family firm and the ending of a 
tradition built up over the 
past hundred years. We would 
like to take this opportunity 
of wishing all past and present 
members of the firm every 
success in their new careers 
spread far and wide through- 
out the C itv of London.

In its first twelve months of operations, The National 
Home Loans Corporation pic has established efficient mortgage 
investment appraisal and administration systems and has made 
investments in United Kingdom residential mortgages of 
£327 million. 

Operating costs were carefully controDed throughout 


per £100 anticipated by our Offer for Subscription. The ratio will 
continue to improve as our investment programme proceeds. 

The Board therefore proposes a final dividend of 1.15p 
per share. The total dividend fortheyear is therefore L83p per share 
which is 60% of distributable earnings. 

These results were achieved against the background of a 
tight operating margin. Mortgage rates dropped from over 12.75% 
to an average of 11% during die course of tne year, while LIBOR 
averaged over 11%. National Home Loans' ability to operate 
profitably in such circumstances promises well for the future when 
the relationship between our costs and our income-producing 
assets will become increasingly favourable. 

In such a large market, and given the success of our first 
year of operations. The National Home Loans Corporation pic will 
have no difficulty in meeting its objective of substantially increased 
mortgage investments. 

A copy of the 1986 Report and Accounts will be sent to 
shareholders shordv.

Why Australia dare not weaken 
its grip on the economy 


B913QE. 


Australia's financial pundits 
have been done out of their 
grievance. The Labour 
government’s austerity eco- 
nomic policies have made it 
very difficult for commen- 
tators and the capital markets 
at laige to indulge in their 
favourite sport of criticizing 
the way the country's finances 
are run. 

Faced with unacceptably 
high inflation, an appalling 
balance of payments deficit 
and a foreign debt level that 
led Mr Paul Keating, the 
Treasurer, to warn that the 
country could become a ba- 
nana republic, the govern- 
ment has pulled out all the 
stops in an effort to halt the 
roL 

Its determination has been 
evident on the three most 
important economic fronts — 
fiscals, monetary and wage 
policy. Mr Keating's budget, 
delivered in August, included 
a government deficit forecast 
of AS 3. 5 billion (£1.42 bil- 
lion). This amounts to just 1.4 
per cent of GNP, the lowest 
level for five years. 

The forecast, which is predi- 
cated on zero real increase in 
state spending, should allow a 
substantial reduction in gov- 
ernment bond sales in the 
1986-87financial year which 
ends next June. 

Such a tight fiscal stance is 
necessary to relieve some of 
the burden from the 
government's monetary pol- 
icy which, in reducing broad 
money supply growth from 19 
to 1 1 per cem over the year to 
August, had forced interest 
rates up to unpopular levels. 

Mortgage rates are now 
about 15 per cent while con- 
sumer finance rates can run to 
22 per cent. 

Perhaps most importantly, 
the government has ensured, 
through accords with the 
Australian Council of Trade 
Unions, that centrally-award- 
ed wage rises have remained 
below inflation. After full 
wage indexing for many years 
- which the stronger unions 
supplemented by individual 
bargaining - next year’s 
awards should be at least 2 or 
3 percentage points below the 
8 per cent inflation rate. 

If the tripartite policy has 
helped to restore some con- 
fidence in the government, the 
40 per cent trade- weigh ted 
depreciation of the Australian 
dollar over the past 1 8 months 
has had more tangible effects. 

The manufacturing sector is 
beginning to show signs of 


From Richard Lander, Sydney 


fighting back after being swept 
aside for years by Japanese 
goods which were unported at 
bargain prices because of an 
artificially hi g h dollar. An 
international competitiveness 
index drawn up by Bain, the 
stockbroker, shows that 
Australian firms are 40 per 
cent better off titan at the start 
of 1 98S. 

As Mr Neale Goldston - 
Moms, head of research at 
Bain, argues, the domestic 
market may be tight because 
of falling disposable incomes 
but at least local firms are 
receiving more ofiL 

To a smaller extent, Austra- 
lian firms are making head- 
way also in overseas markets 
although the country is still 
suffering for its almost total 
neglect of the industrial sector 
in the first three decades after 
the Second World War when 
it was cosseted by high farm 
and natural resource prices. 

Australia's bargain base- 
ment prices are attracting 
foreigners in droves to put 
their money in the country. 

Overseas funds come from 
a wide variety of sources: fund 
managers, looking away from 
the fragile heights reached by 
the Japanese and American 
financial markets, are at- 
tracted by rising industrial 
profits, highly profitable gold 
mines and government bonds 
that yield about 13.5 percent; 
tourists are drawn by the 
country's fine cities and 
breathtaking natural beauty, 
and foreign companies which, 
after being encouraged to 
“Australian ize” their subsid- 
iaries by lowering their share 
stakes, nave now been allowed 
to lake them over completely. 

Reckitt & Colman. the Brit- 
ish household goods group, 
has taken over its quoted 
subsidiary already and other 
companies are expected to 
follow suit. 

But it is a facade without 
much depth. As Mr Will 
Buttrose, chief economist of 
Lloyds Bank NZA, said, much 
of the inflow is “here today, 
gone tomorrow money. If 
people think the United States 
looks better, they will pull 
out". 

There is also the question of 
whether the government can 
make its financial targets 
stick. At present, Mr Keating 
has the goodwill of the finan- 


cial markets as the medicine 
takes time to work. .Last week 
they greeted a rise in the 
quarterly-published Con- 
sumer Price Index from 8.4 
per cent to 8.9 per cent by 
boosting the Australian dollar 
by more than half a cent 
against the American dollar. 

Such patience may wane 
next year if the government’s 
fiscal and monetary grip weak- 
ens. There must be doubts 
also about its ability to keep 
the unions in tow for much 
longer. “It's wishful thinking 
to believe that the union 
movement will keep as quiet 
next year," Mr Buttrose said. 
There will be little help from 
the rest of the world. Because 
of the long neglect of the 
industrial sector, Australia is 
still heavily dependent on its 


exports of agricultural goods 
and minerals. 

What progress there has 
been is, in Mr Buttrose s 
words, of “petty cash propor- 
tions" when compared to the 
ysiig of Australia's financial 
problems. Gross foreign debt 
totalled about A$86 billion, or 
37 per cent of GDP. m June. 
The current account of the 
balance of payments is likely 
to show a deficit of at least 
A$1S billion in 1986-87: and 
inflation is still four times the 
average of most OECD 
countries. 

Figures of this magnitude 
demand that the government 
maintains its present poljcies 
on all three fronts. “Given 
that governing is a mixture of 
politics and economics, they 
really can't do much more 
than they’ve done,” Mr 
Buttrose said. “But it will be a 
long- haul exercise".

Hitachi s wide-ranging technologies in communication (from left to ngnt- 
optical fibers, optical 1C. advanced telephone exchange system 
and satellite communication. 


“I know he's trying to tell me something: 
but what does he really mean?’ In our world 
of proliferating technologies and new termi- 
nology, this kind of question is asked a lot 
Here is what we are doing about it. 

Hitachi's scientists and technicians' long- . 
term goal is to break the language barrier. 
They are diligently at work today on an array 
of projects that will vastly improve the com- 
munications of tomorrow. 

For example, we've made tremendous 
progress on a system to translate Japanese 
into English. 

This system can be used to translate 
various scientific/technical papers and 
machinery/equipment manuals. Special 
“glossaries" can be developed to adapt it for 
fields as diverse as medicine, electronics 
and aeronautics. Further development could 
lead to automatic telephone translation or 
even portable verbal translators for travelers. 

In addition to the machine transla- 
tion system, Hitachi's research specialists 
are also developing advanced transmission 
systems that send your phone calls or 
business data across great distances using 
hair-thin optical fibers and laser beams. 
They are also working on other new methods 
of communications, such as advanced 
telephone exchange systems, satellite com- 
munication systems, TV conferences, 
and so forth. 

At the root of much of this is our highly 
advanced computer technology: because 
Hitachi is producing some of the fastest, 
largest-capacity systems available today. 

We link technology to human needs. We 
believe that Hitachi s advanced technologies 
will result in systems and products that are 
functionally sophisticated but easy to use. 
Our goal in communications— and trans- 
portation, energy and consumer electronics 
as well— is to build products and systems . 
that will improve the quality of life the 
world around.

T he Wefloome Trust, 
the charity created 
by the philanthropist 
and pharmaceutical 
businessman Sir 
Henry Wellcome, who died 50 
years ago. is the biggest single 
non-government source of 
uinds for medical research in 
Bntam. 

. Over the years, but mainly 
in the last 20, it hag awarded 
more than £170 million for 
studies over a huge and di- 
verse range, not only in medi- 
cine but in the associated life 
sciences. 

This has taken place, 
moveover. during times 
which have seen dramatic 
advances in knowledge and 
understanding of the genes 
and cells and molecules which 
constitute human life, the very 
foundations and building 
bricks which determine the 
way we are aud function, 
thrive and die. 


Fifty years ago a trust 
was set up by Sir 
Henry Wellcome for 
research and the 
advancement of 
medical science. 
Today it is a leading 
medical charity

During the current financial 
year alone, the trust will 
distribute £33 million. But it is 
not so much the amount of 
money it is able to dispense 
that really matters. It is the 
character of the spending, and 
the decisions that lie behind it

Writing in the current issue 
of Wellcome’s quarterly jour- 
nal Medical Historv, Lord 
Franks recalls how the trust 
decided, soon after he began 
his 1 7-year stint as chairman 
in 1 965, that it would cease to 
put half its income into capital 
grants for buildings and equip- 
ment for medical research. 

He says: “Its function was 
not to act as a substitute for 
the government in providing 
funds for normal university 
building. At one blow, a 
considerable sum was released 
for use in other ways. 

“The trustees gained a new 
freedom of flexibility and 
choice.” 


Lord Franks points to a 
second decision that was no 
less vitaL The trustees decided 
it was no longer good enough 
simply to respond to ad hoc 
requests. He explains: “They 
were now prepared to take a 
positive line and suggest sub- 
jects for research: they would 
finance those qualified and 
willing to respond to their 
suggestions.” 

That was, he argues, “some- 
thing of a revolution”. It ran 
counter to the accepted wis- 
dom that it was for scientists 
to think and propose subjects; 
the job of institutions like the 
Wellcome Trust being simply 
to support them. 

That tradition was aban- 
doned. Support for topics 
suggested by researchers re- 
mained, but the trustees 
added “new dimensions of 
policy and action. As a result 
there has been a stream of 
initiatives over the years.” 

When pharmaceutical com- 
panies such as the Wellcome 
Foundation — whose profits 
provide the investment from 
which the totally independent 
trust derives its income — 
spend money on medical re- 
search, the motivation is prop- 
erly and necessarily 
commercial. The aim is to 
produce successful products. 

. When the Medical Research 
Council determines its alloca- 


tions it is obliged, as an official 
body, to play a leading admin- 
istrative role and to be 
“political” On the broadest 
sense). The aim is to respond 
usefully to as many competing 
pressures over a wide national 
spectrum as it can. 

The Wellcome Trust is not, 
however, constrained by such 
aims. Dr Peter Williams, the 
trust’s director for the past 21 
years, says: “We make sure we 
do not do a commercial job 
with charity's money. And we 
work solely as a science-based 
research body. Instead of 


nized and appraised by peer 
review and in other ways. But 
the mist uses the expertise of 
its staff and of the seven 
trustees — of whom five are 
among the most eminent 
medical scientists in the coun- 
try — to decide what research 
to support 

They do so on the basis of 
purely scientific criteria and 
with no considerations in 
mind ■ other than how a 
particular field of medical 
science may be advanced. 

This approach greatly facili- 
tates the process of consid- 
ering and making grants for 
research. It has an even greater 




■ pail 

| ■ 










value in making it possible to 
)fr 


Fountain of new 
policy ideas 


administrators, we have a staff 
of scientists.” 

Under the leadership of Dr 
Williams, described by Lord 
Franks as “a perpetual foun- 
tain of new ideas about 
policy”, the trust thus pro- 
vides a unique resource for 
medical research. The sci- 
entists who advise the trustees 
on how money should be 
spent are eminent in their own 
fields. And they keep in close 
contact with their colleagues 
in the laboratories and 
hospitals. 

Proposals must still of 
course, be carefully scruti-

support areas of medicine that 
might otherwise lose out. 

Its scientific staff are well 
aware of what is going on in 
the scientific and medical 
worlds. So they are able to 
spot under-researched fields 
that can benefit from the 
trust’s help. 

Skin disease and mental 
health, for instance, are two 
Cinderella areas of medicine 
that tend to be neglected in 
comparison with specialities 
that are seen as “glamorous”. 
The trust has sponsored re- 
search in both of them. 

It can also act as a kind of 
“joker in the pack, changing 
the name of the game”, as one 
of its staff described it, by 
identifying topics that are 
under-researched because 
they do not fit into any well- 
defined category, or which 
straddle different disciplines. 

In mental health, for exam- 
ple, an understanding of cell 
biology is potentially im- 
portant as the biochemistry of 
the nerve cells and the brain 
could be the key to many 
psychiatric problems, and 
could obviate the need fin- 
invasive methods in 
treatment. 

But few, if any, psychiatrists 


are particularly well up in 
biochemistry. In any case, 
most are too preoccupied with 
clinical work to study so 
different a discipline. The 
Wellcome Trust helps, 
through fellowships which 
give cross-disciplinary train- 
ing. to break through such 
barriers. 

Another field in which it has 
done this is the medicine of 
the eye. Sufferers from high 
blood pressure and diabetes 
often suffer damage to the 
retina. But physicians on one 
side of the barrier are seldom 
equipped to give expert advice 
on incipient eye conditions, 
while ophthalmologists, on 
the other side, will tend to 
concentrate on their particular 
professional interest, with per- 
haps inadequate concern for 
the general medical aspects. 


The trust’s imposing London 
headquarters and (left) its American- 
born founder, Sir Henry Wellcome, 
who made his fortune In the 
pharmaceutical industry 


The Wellcome Trust pio- 
neered the advertising of 
substantial awards to get over 
this problem, by finding the 
appropriate research workers 
and thereby stimulating the 
cross-fertilization of dis- 
ciplines and ideas. 

It is funding two initiatives, 
a £3 million programme of 
noD-invasive studies of the 
brain, and another group of 
studies into the clinical 


applications of molecular 
biology. 

There can be few charities 
outside medicine, let alone 
within it, which so effectively 
enable the abstruse and theo- 
retical to be practically applied 
in real life. 


Yet no Nobel prizes have 
come the trust's way. It is not a 
byword for medical excellence 
and innovation, like many 
British teaching hospitals, 
postgraduate institutions or 
royal colleges. To the general 
public, the trust is hardly 
known, in contrast, say, to 


Papworth Hospital- famous 
for its heart transplants. 

Bui Papwonh's transplants 
would never have become 
possible without many kinds 
of pioneering work which 
preceded them and which the 
trust has helped to fond — the 
development of advanced 
equipment, studies on the 
relationship between the heart 
and the nervous system, fun- 
damental immunological 
research. 

Similarly, the trust has done 
much to foster the science 
input into the study and 
understanding of mental 


health, anaesthetics and other 
fields. The Nobel prizes in 
physiology won by Sir Andrew 
.Huxley in 1963 and Sir Ber- 
nard Katz in 1 970 depended at 
least in part on research 
carried out with equipment 
that was paid for by the trust. 

Dr Williams says: “There 
arc many names attached to 
great discoveries which appear 
in our reports on the projects 
and people we have sup- 
ported. But a grant-giving 
organization like ours cannot 
take credit for what it has 
achieved.” 

He is justifiably confident 
that The Wellcome Trust “will 
continue to play an important 
role in its support of medical 
research”, both in Britain and 
further afield — in Europe, the 
Commonwealth and tropics. 

The trust’s role in furthering 
research is now so well-estab- 
lished that the prestige of a 
Wellcome award is itself a 
significant factor in the choice 
of the trust by applicants for 
support.

With its objective of the advancement of 
research in human and animal medicine, and the 
support of the history of medicine, The Trust 
is funded mainly by profits from Wellcome’s 
commercial activities. 


It supports a wide variety of research pro- 
grammes, all of them unconnected with the 
business of Wellcome. 


In todays world, as the 
frontiers of science axe rolled

continually uncovers new 
territories across the broadest

THE TIMES WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 29 1986 


THE WELLCOME TRUST/2 


FOCUS 



At tbe begin- 
ning of this 
year ihe 
Wellcome 
Trust, bad 
only one 
investment: 
Wellcome 
Foundation 
Ltd, the pharmaceutical com- 
pany built by Sir Henry 
Wellcome.Less than a year 
later it has more than 300. the 
company bas been floated on 
the Stock Exchange and in- 
stead of one owner (the trust). 
Wellcome now has 50,000. 

There were two prime rea- 
sons. If both company and 
trust were to continue to 
prosper, it was essential to 
allow the company to expand. 
And however good the invest- 
ment. it is dangerous to have 
all investments in one 
company. 

Ian Macgregor,' tbe trust's 
deputy director in charge of 
finance, says it was felt that 
the base of tbe portfolio 
should be broadened. 

But the main reason for the 
flotation was essentially to 
ensure that a legal and finan- 
cial arrange me nl reached half 
a century ago could be up- 
dated so that it did not start to 
work against, rather than for, 
the interests of ihe parties to it. 

The dilemma was this: the 
funds the trust used to support 
medical research and research 
into the history of medicine 
(grants of more than £2S 


Float brings 
new buoyancy 


million in the year 1985-56) 
were based on distributions 
from the company. 

“One of the problems from 
the company's point of view 
over those 50 years," says Mr 
Macgregor. “is that there was 
never any new capital coming 
in. We (the trust) were the 
only owners. We had for years 
not been able to add to the 
capital, or to introduce new 
monies to the company, there- 
fore the expansion of the 
company had been caused by 
holding down the level of 
distributions to the trust" 

In the last year before going 
public the distributions were 
only £24 million, pretty mod- 
est for a company with a 
capital value of more than 
£1.5 billion. 

"The only monies that were 
available for expansion, for 
continued research, for ac- 
quisitions or any of these 
things bad to come out of the 
cash the company itself gen- 
erated. the cash which the 
trust didn't take as distrib- 
utions.” 

Floating the company and 
selling off part of the trust's 
holding solved several prob- 
lems simultaneously. As a 
public company Wellcome Pic 


will be able, through access to 
the equity market, to raise 
money more easily; the diver- 
gence between the interests of 
the company and the trust will 
be lessened; and the trust, by 
spreading its investments over 
a much wider range of com- 
panies. will greatly lessen the 
chances of any financial catas- 
trophe befalling it. 

Tbe changes gave, and are 
still giving, the trust's lawyers 
some intriguing work to do. 

Sir Henry's will left his 
trustees in ownership of the 
company but did not give 
them powers to dispose of that 
ownership. 

"We had to approach the 
Charity Commissioners to ob- 
tain a 'scheme' which would 
enable us to override the rights 
given in the will," says Mr 
Macgregor. 

The trust got an order from 
the commissioners which en- 
abled it to do two things: first, 
to dispose of some sharehold- 
ings in Wellcome, providing it 
did not lose control; and. 
second, to apply to the 
commissioners for specific 
authority each time it wished 
to dispose of a shareholding in 
the foundation. 

"There has been only one 


tranche and we have given 
undertakings in the prospec- 
tus that for at least two years 
there will fc>e no more.” 

The sale of 21 per cent of its 
holding in Wellcome has put 
£200 million in the trust's 
coffers. 

The four investment man- 
agers putting that money out 
to work have done a remark- 
able job In the last few 
months, but they are working 
under some rather arcane ; 
investment powers, says Mr 
Macgregor. and revising those 
will engage the lawyers for 
some time yeL 

The investment powers, 
given by the courts in 1956. 
look quirky now — for exam- 
ple. they cannot invest in 
Japanese or German compan- 
ies. Mr Macgregor says that 
the trust is becoming increas- 
ingly important in this coun- 
try as government-funded 
research is curtailed. "There 
was a continuing contraction 
because of government cut- 
backs. We fen that if research 
in this country was not going 
to suffer even more than h is 
suffering we had to signifi- 
cantly increase our activities." 

Experts in the field wonder, 
indeed, whether within 10 
years there might not be more 
money available through pri- 
vate sources for new ideas and 
specific project research (as 
opposed to the money needed 
to run research units) than is 
coming from government

Headaches of Sir Henry’s will 


Sir Henry Wellcoiae's will 
runs to more than 40 pages 
and lays down two main 
objectives Tor the trustees: tbe 
advance of research work in 
"medicine, surgery, chemistry, 
physiology, bacteriology, 
therapeutics, materia medico, 
pharmacy and allied subjects, 
and any subject or subjects 
which have or at any time may 
develop any importance for 
scientific research which may 
conduce to tbe improvement of 
the physical conditions of 
mankind". 

It goes on to specify what 
preventions and cares, control 
and exterminations might be 
thought relevant. 

The other objective is tbe 
"establishment, endowment 
and future maintenance of any 
new research or library and for 
the purchase and aqnisition of 
books, manuscripts, docu- 
ments, pictures and other 
works of art and other 
objects". 

The indefatigable Sir 
Henry, in the middle of these 
thoughts tor tbe fhtnre, did not 
forget the staff, imploring 
them not to smoke or drink 
until they were 26, at least, 
ami then only in moderation. 

He also voiced tbe thought 
that they should be adequately 
paid for their work. 

Tbe wifi caused a great deal 
of work for the lawyers and 
many headaches for the early 
trustees, of whom Sir Henry 
Dale, Nobel prize winner, 
OM, and president of the 
Royal Society, became chair- 
man in 1938. He retired in I960 
at the age of 85. 

Though Dr Peter Williams 
has been Director of the 
Wellcome Trust since 1965, be 
joined the staff in I960. There 
were five on the staff then with 
about £2 million to spend. For 
the first 24 years the trust had 
spent much time sorting out 
the will and was very mnch in 
the hands of accoantants and 
lawyers. Daring the war, little 
conid be done, and there was 
an alarming slump in profit in. 
the 1940s. 

Money was given out twice a 
year - "in great dollops," says 
Dr Williams - mostly to 
universities for much-seeded 
laboratories. By i960 it was

subjects like tropical 
medicine, skin diseases,

dear that new policies and new 
directions were needed. 

From 1965, when Dr Wil- 
liams took over as director, 
with a new board of trustees 
and Lord Franks as chairman, 
this process began in earnest 
"We began tbe transfer from 
filing s to people," says Dr 
Williams. 

The first thing to ask was 
who and what the trust should 
support They began to award 
senior research fellowships, to 
meet and visit idealists, to get 
to know people, and get them- 
selves known. 

The strong inclination, says 
Dr Williams, was to support 
the universities, and with an 
organization which had a lot of 
money, with a number of 
trustees who were distin- 
guished scientists and a 
scientifically-based staff, they 
began to know not only what 
research was being done but 


what was nor being done. 

“We looked at certain sub- 
jects like tropical medicine, 
skin diseases, medical eye 
diseases — such as tbe effect of 
diabetes or high Hood pres- 
sure on the eye — and mental 
health. Most of these were 
neglected subjects." 

He pointed out that schizo- 
phrenia may be inherited, so it 
needed to be tied down by a 
geneticist and a psychiatrist; if 
Huey advertised and offered 
£150,000 over five years to look 
at tbe problem, something 
might come of it. 

Later, as the universities cot 
down on research posts, the 
trust has been able, fly having 
money uncommitted mid avail- 
able, to start setting up re- 
search posts, beginning with 
senior research fellowships 
ami progressing to senior 
lectureships and lecturers on 
five-year contracts.

collection, now in the Science Museum 


"There are now about 100 of 
them, forming a background or

the right time and keep them

led to the setting up of expert;

equipment is very expensive -

example. "We recognise thqt 
the size of the grant must have, 
something to do with the cost

tropical medicine, backed by, 
the Colonial Office, no longer, 
exists. The Weflcome Trust is. 
setting up units in tropical 
countries and paying for ca-*.

The brain drain, if not f 
stopped, is staunched a little' 
by the offer of support for

trust supports European inter- , 
changes — "even when the” 
Iron Curtain was quite thick"- 
— and. provides funds fot’J 
people from Australia and

THE WELLCOME TRUST/3 


Publicity Of 


genius, 

lonely 


enigma 



Sir Henry 
Wellcome, 
founder of 
the fortune 
that provid- 
ed the Well- 
come Trust, 
was born 
not quite in 
a_ log cabm, but on a pioneer 
ferm in Wisconsin in 1853. At 
the age of eight he travelled by 
ojvered wagon to Garden 
trty, Minnesota, in a large 
group for fear of Indians — a 
well-justified fear. 

His family had moved into 
the middle of the Great Sioux 
Indian war, and Henry helped 
nis uncle Jacob, a doctor, not 
only to look after the 
wounded, but to cast bullets as 
welL 

It was perhaps prophetic, in 
that practicality and philan- 
ihropy continued to be his 
main line of business, and his 
own personal passion. 

He also had a talent for 
publicity, inventing a “Magic 
Ink" when he was only 16. He

medicine and pharmacy

a century ago. Wellcome was a dedicated collector, on a scale rivalling that of Wilfiam Randolph Hearst

in South America 


made his reputation as a 
travelling salesman at S16 a 
week. 

His work took him to South 
America, where he studied the 
chinchona forests (used in the 
preparation of quinine) and 
published his results in Amer- 
ica, and in the Pharmaceutical 
Journal of Great Britain. 

Soon afterwards he went 
into business for himself with 
Silas Burroughs, a former 
college friend, and the firm of 
Burroughs Wellcome was 
established in 1880. 

As Helen Turner says, in her 
excellent short biography of 
Henry Wellcome, the firm was 
started “in the right place at 
the right time by two men 
fully-equipped to seize their

portable and did not need to

His genius for publicity 
ensured that every explorer, 
such as H. M. Stanley, or 
person in the public eye 
(ranging from kings to presi- 
dents) was presented with a 
“tabloid” medicine chest 

When Burroughs died of 
pleurisy in 1895, Henry 
Wellcome was sole owner of 
an imemational business, 
which continued to expand 
and flourish. 

Sir Henry became a British 
subject in 1910 and was 
knighted in 1932. The 1936 
edition of Who’s Who. the 
year he died, runs to more 
than a column, listing his. 
achievements, but few per- 
sonal details. The Times 
obituary described him as a 
“quiet reticent and almost 
shy man, slightly above mid- 
dle height - ■ - alert and 
quickly brightening up when 
he became interested in some 
topic of conversation".

Sir Henry Dale, who knew 
Wellcome as well as anyone

had with him, that he chose to 
spend his wealth in supporting 
research, as another man 
might choose to spend his on a 
raring stable. 

“He made ft clear that 
research, giving results which 
could be applied in increasing 
the prosperity of his business, 
would have an added claim on 
his appreciation, but only as 
giving him eventually a yet 
wider opportunity to support 
research. 

“I believe that to have been 
a perfectly sincere statement 
of his attitude, and his whole 
subsequent career has justified 
it” 


Like Burrell, Wellcome had 
a great eye for a bargain, and 
money was carefully spent, 
sometimes in junk shops — 8s 
6d for a pair of 18th-century 
handcuffs used on lunatics, for 
example. 

Henry Wellcome travelled 
widely, and his arrival in the 
Sudan after it had been cap- 
tured by General Gordon led 
to the foundation of his 
Tropical Research Laborator- 


His interests included two 
archaeological explorations, at 
Jebel Moya in the Sudan, and 
at Lac hi sh, near Jerusalem. 

It was an extraordinary, 
vigorous, successful life, and 
yet as Sir Henry Dale said. 
“Sir Henry Wellcome, for a 
man of such wide and gen- 
erous interests and activities, 
was curiously lonely, and it 
may be doubled whether any- 
one knew him with sufficient 
intimacy to do more than 
speculate as to his real feelings 
and motives".

THE WELLCOME TRUST/4 


FOCUS 


Funding the war against tropical disease 




Of the many vital 
fields of medical 
research mi which 
the Wellcome 
Trust has had a 
big impact, none 
ranks higher in 
importance than 
tropical medicine 
and infections diseases. These re- 
ceived special emphasis in Sir 
Henry Wellcome’s will. 

- The trust devotes £5 million 
annually to funding research on 
diem, in Britain and overseas, and to 
teaching. It is the only field in which 
Che trust plays a teaching role. 

This stems from the existence of 
Wellcome’s celebrated museum of 
tropical medicine. The museum 
could be regarded, says Dr Peter 
Williams, the trust's director, as an 
attractive ‘‘textbook mi the waif” for 
young doctors and nurses. Its value 
has been enhanced in recent years 
by the Wellcome Tropical Institute, 
which was established to provide, 
s upe r vise and evaluate resources for 
leaching tropical medicine. 

But it is in its support for 
research, rather than teaching, that 
the trust does its most notable work. 
It is financing several projects of 
particular value. 


At Salem, in Brazil, at the mouth 
of the Amazon, two British biolo- 
gists, Dr Ralph Lainson and Dr 
Geoffrey Shaw, are conducting 
pioneering studies of the disease 
espundia, in which ulcerative lesions 
destroy the tissues of the nose, 
mouth, throat, eyes and ears and 
even the underlying bone. 

ft has long been known that the 
disease arises from a parasite which 
is carried to its victims by the 
sandfly, but when studies began the 
precise mechanisms of this were 
only barely understood. 

Thanks to fieldwork throughout 
the huge Amazon region, which the 
trust has funded, the particular 
varieties of parasite and sandfly 
involved have been identified. 

In Jamaica, Dr and Mis Michael 
Golden have conducted research for 
the past decade, under the aegis of 
the trust which has greatly ad- 
vanced tmderstanding of the de- 
ficiency disease, kwashiokor. This 
leads to severe malnutrition, es- 
pecially in children. 

The Goldens have established 
that die condition may be due not to 
insaffteKnt protein, as widely 
thought, but lo other aspects of the 
malnourished body's metabolism 
such as the absence of trace 
elements. 


Such research has considerable 
implications for feeding pro- 
grammes and bow the money raised 
or provided for these by charities 
and governments is spent 

It is noteworthy that this unit's 
research is being carried out to 
association with the Rowett Re-' 
search Institute of Aberdeen. As Eh' 
Williams points out the Wellcome 
Trust readily co-operates with other 
bodies when that is appropriate. 

At Nairobi and the coastal town of 
Kali ft, in Kenya, the trust fluids a 
unit operating under the auspices of 
the Kenya Medical Research In- 
stitute, which carries out studies in a 
variety of important fields. These 
include the resistance of malaria to 
treatment by drugs as well as work 
on other virions tropical diseases. 

The trust's research unit at 
Vellore, India, is investigati ng the

malari a, all potentially fatal con- 
ditions, are under study at the trnsfs 
unit in Bangkok, led by Dr David 
Worrall in collaboration with the 
Oxford tropical research pro- 


gramme. One major finding has 
been that a widely accepted form of 
treatment for cerebral malaria, the 
administration of steroid drugs, is a 
mistaken therapy. 

All the studies at Bangkok are 
linked with academic research in

Rowett Institute and the London 
School of Hygiene and Tropical 
Medicine — in such a way. Dr 
W illiam points out that basic 
science is applied to medical need. 

Such work must have an under- 
pinning structure of fellowships, 
lectu r e sh ips and awards. The trust 
funds advanced training fellowships 
tei tropical medicine and infections 
diseases, designed to enable young, 


promising scientists to extend their 
post-doctoral training by two years 
in any laboratory which offers 
opportunities in their special fields. 
It also finances senior lectureships 
for basic and clinical scientists, as 
wefl as lectureships for full-time 
research in tropical countries. 

Britain once led the world in 
tropical medicine, and much of that 
legacy remains. Nevertheless, the 
extent of British research in this 
area has declined, and the trust has 
been active at enlisting the support 
of sod institutions as the Common- 
wealth Secretariat and the World 
Health Organization to enable re- 
search to coattone. 

“It is not a question of giving them 
all the money they need for specific 
projects,” says Dr WflKams. “It is 
more a matter of providing the start- 
up money, creating the initiative, 
getting the ball rolling. ” 

Dr Williams has chaired key 
WHO committees in this area. 
Together with his deputy. Dr Brid- 
get Ogjlvie, a parasitologist by 
training, he and the trust have 
played a notable nrie in stimulating 
others to make their own contribu- 
tion to the understanding, and 
perhaps eventually tin conquer, of 
tropical disease.

Professor Sydney Brenner, of

As often as not, it is the new

than new thoughts which en-

made. 

That is certainly true in 
medical science, and the 
Wellcome Trust has consis-

Royal Postgraduate Medical School 


at Hammersmith Hospital 

RPMS is the only multi-disciplinary postgraduate medical school in the 
Unibed Kingdom. It is a leading international centre for medical 
research and education and was one of only two university medical 
institutions recently rated by the University Grants Committee as 
outstanding across the whole field of its research activities. 

Much less than half the School’s total income now comes from 
Government sources. In particular our research effort depends on 
funding from other bodies, such as the Wellcome Trust 

The School wishes to take this opportunity bo congratulate the Trust 
on having attained its 50th Anniversary, and express its gratitude for 
the substantial support that the Trust has given to research in the 
School. The Trust is currently funding research at the School in many 
fields, including: 

• the genetic structure of the virus causing glandular fever 

• the nature and mechanism of the transport of iron in 
human blood 

• the hormones responsible for the function of the gall 
bladder 

• the understanding of nephritis and its treatment by 
plasma exchange 

• the cells responsible for inflammation in skin diseases 
such as contact dermatitis. 

The RPMS recently celebrated its own 50th Anniversary, and the 
School’s Jubilee Appeal has aimed to raise funds to support medical 
research in these and other areas. For further information about the 
School and Jubilee Appeal please contact John Williams at our Jubilee 
Appeal Office, RPMS, Du Cane Road, London W12 OHS (01-7403245).

The electron microscope, 
costing £100,000 or so. is vital 
to biological research because 
of its very high resolving

not to be a disastrous loss of 
morale among researchers, 
and yet more highly-skilled 
and qualified scientists lost to 
the brain drain, there must be 
an assured career structure. 

All this is taken into ac- 
count by the Wellcome Trust. 
“We see it as a necessity to 
make career funding a major 
part of our support,” Dr 
Wi lliams explained. “It is 
pointless to train someone in 
an elaborate way unless there 
is career security.” 

“The private sector cannot 
displace the Stale. There is 
still a crucial role for govern- 
ment centrally because the 
private sector's money is too 
ephemeral and in too many 
hands to finance major new 
institutions. 

“It needs to be made very- 
dear that though the balance 


has changed, it is very im- 
portant that the government 
mechanism focusses on seeing; 
that its role is still strong and 
that it does not assume char- 
ities will take over.” 

That said, it is notorious 
that the government’s own 
agency, the Medical Research 
Council, feels threatened by 
loss of money, prestige and 
position, in contrast, the 
Wellcome Trust has flexibil- 
ity, while not being obliged to 
maintain major institutions. - ; 

The trust emphasises that it 
is still eager to examine and 
fond new ideas. “The trustees 
invite the research commu- 
nity to put proposals to it 
even though they may not fit 
into the current categories of 
support"

The history 
of median e, 
says Dr Wil- 
liam 
Bynum, 
head of the 
Academic 
Unit of the 
Wellcome 
Insitute for the History of 
Medicine, is a subject which is 
taken much more seriously 
now by historians. Health and 
d i sease are seen to touch 
everything: diet and clothing, 
Irving conditions, poverty and 
social conditions, war and 
peace. 

The unit provides courses 
for undergraduate and post- 
graduate students in associ- 
ation with University College 
London and programmes of 
seminars and symposia for the 
medical community. 

There are seven academics, 
and with the part-timers and 
the specialist librarians and 
staff, it is one of the bi&est 
academic centres in the world 
for this particular discipline. 

In the 1960s the trust 
founded several units — in 
Oxford, Cambridge, Glasgow, 
and most recently, Manches- 
ter— for the study, in the hope 
that, as with University Col- 
lege, the University would

take them on. The hopes faded 
through the hungry 1970s, as 
the units continue to be 
funded by the Wellcome 
Trust 

The academic staff also 
■publishes research, and in due 
course hopes to write a general 
systematic history of its sub- 
ject from Egypt to the 20th 
century. One would need a 
certain amount of hubris to 
attempt this personally, says 
Dr Bynum, “ but we have 
sufficient collective hubris to 
do h together" taking in the 
Sanscrit manuscripts, for 
example, on the way.

library. Sir Henry collected 
books between 1898 and 1936, 
and one of his ambitions was 
to acquire a copy of every 
book printed on the history of 
medicine. 

He came quite close to his 
aim, buying the private librar- 
ies of William Morris, J. F. 
Payne, and Kurt Wolff. The 
library owns books by most of 


the great names from antiq- 
uity to the Renaissance, 
mostly in original or early 
editions. Later purchases in- 
clude 11,000 books from the 
library of the Medical Society 
of London, and there are 
separate collections that in- 
clude western manuscripts, 
the American Collection (with 
particular emphasis on Span- 
ish America), Oriental books 
and manuscripts. 

In 1979 a Contemporary 
Archives Centre was set up to 
encourage the preservation of 
records; the library holds the 
papers o£ among others. Sir 
Ernst Chain, Dr Marie Slopes, 
and the records of the Eugen- 
ics Society and the Multiple 
Sclerosis Society. Three 
shelves hold a month's supply 
of new books — from Plague 
Etotoxicology to Royal Kew 
and Madeleine Masson's pic- 
ture history of nursing. 

The current series of lec- 
tures dwells rather lingeringly 
on the Plague, (seven, ranging 
from' Jastinian to the

The museum has had a 
chequered career, spending 
much of its time in store, or in 
packing cases. In 1955 there 
was a very restricted display in 
the Wellcome Building (now 
the Institute) at l83Euston 
Road, London, and much 
materia], not strictly con- 
cerned with the History of 
Medicine, was despatched in 


1977 to the Science Museum 
on permanent loan.

with the subject, however 
tenuously, from the life-size 
bronze of Jenner vaccinating

resisting the process (Sir 
Hemy bought all the Jenner 
memorabilia for £500) to arte- 
facts. some of which, particu- 
larly the surgical instruments,

tury flesh. Sir Henry also 
collected medical paintings 
and statuary with foe same 
enthusiasm.

Case 300/84 

Before K_ Bahtmann. President 
of foe Second Chamber and 
Judges F. A. Schockweiler and 
O. Due 

Advocate General M. Dannon 
(Opinion April 23, 1 986) 
{Judgment October 23] 

A missionary priest who was 
supported by contributions 
from his parishioners was a self- 
employed person for the pur- 
poses of Community social 
security legislation. 

The plaintiff, a Netherlands 
national, was a Roman Catholic 
priest belonging to the 
Pre m o nstra lensian (Norbenine) 
Order. After studying in a 
Norbenine monastery in Bel- 
gium. he served Grom 1955 to 
1980 as a missionary in the 
Belgian Congo, now Zaire. 

Dining a period of leave in 
1977 he resided in the Nether- 
lands and registered as a vol- 
untary insured person under the 
Algemene Arbeidsongeschikt- 
heidswei (General law on in- 
capacity for work — AAW). 

Article 77 of that law au- 
thorized voluntary insurance 
contributions to be paid in 
respect of periods during which 
contributors would otherwise be 
uninsured if they were pursuing 
an activity in a State regarded as 
a developing country. Zaire was 
so regarded. 

Having become incapacitated 
for work in Zaire he returned in 
March 1981 to The Netherlands 
where, with effect from January 


that be had not been incapaci- 
tated for work In The Nether- 
lands for an uninterrupted 
period of 52 weeks within the 
meaning of the AAW. 

The plaintiff brought a it ac- 
tion for the annulment of that 
decision before the Raad van 
Beroep (Social Security Court), 
Utrecht, which referred a num- 
ber of questions to the Court of 
Justice of the European 
Communities for a prelirainary 
ruling. 

In its judgment the European 
Court of Justice held as follows: 

The national court had 
submitted a series of questions 
.related to the principal problem 
of whether a residence require- 
ment for the award of an 
invalidity benefit was, in the 
circumstances of the present 
case, compatible with Commu- 
nity law.

In the context of voluntary

member state, the concept of a 
“self-employed person” was 
characterized by the type of 
activity which a person carried 
out or had carried out and such 
activity had to be a professional 
activity. 

However, , taking into consid- 
eration the requirement that 
that concept should be inter- 
preted broadly, it was not 
essential that the selfemployed 
person should receive 
remuneration as a direct reward 
for that activity; it was sufficient 
that he should receive, in the 
context of that activity, 
contributions which enabled 
him, in whole or m part, to meet

Solicitor’s duty to warn client of risks 


County Personnel Ltd v Alan 
R. Palter & Co 
Before Sir Nicolas Browne- 
Wilkinson, Vice Chancellor. 
Lord Justice Stephen Brown and 
Lord Justice Bingham 
(Judgment given October 17] 

In the proper discharge of his 
duty, a careful solicitor faced 
with an unusual clause in a 
contract -should be put on 
inquiry as to the effect of the 
clause and was required to warn 
his client of the risks involved. 

The Court of Appeal so held 
allowing an appeal by the plain- 
tiffs, County Personnel Lid 
from a decision of Mr Robert 
Wright, QC, who, sitting as a 
deputy High Court judge on 
July 15. 1985, dismissed the 
plaintiff's claim for damages for 
breach of contraa and neg- 
ligence against their former 
solicitors, the defendants. Alan 
R. Pulver & Co, Watford. 

Mr J. R. Gaum for the 
plaintiffs; Mr Ivan Krolik for 
the defendants. 

LORD JUSTICE BINGHAM 
said that two ladies who bad 
worked together in an employ- 
ment agency decided to go info 
business on their own account 
through the medium of a com- 
pany to be incorporated, and 
they required business premises. 

They answered a newspaper 
advertisement by a Mr Cook 
trading as Horae Counties Busi- 
nesses. for two rooms on the 
ground floor of 109 Queen 
Street, Maidenhead, at an an- 
nual rent of £3.500 inclusive. 

The two ladies expected that 
their business would cover that 
rent and informally agreed to 
take a lease of the rooms for a 
15-year term with five-yearly 
rent reviews. 

Initially Mr Cook did not 


appear to have any interest in 
the premises, but he set about 
negotiating the terms of a head 
lease of the whole building to 
himself with a view to subletting 
the two rooms to the ladies or 
their company when formed. 

On December 2!, 1978 the 
two ladies instructed Mr Rose, a 


defendants, to act in the matter. 
There was evidence which sug- 
gested that the tenant's pro- 
posed rent might have been tied 
to a precentage of the the mesne 
lessor’s rent under the head 
lease. 

Mr Rose received a copy of 
the head lease of the whole 
building from Mr Cook's solic- 
itor, bin the rent payable under 
the head lease had been cutout. 

There was also a covenant 
against assigning or subletting 
without the head lessors' written 
notice, such licence not to be 
unreasonably withheld, and the 
lessee covenanted that on any 
subjecting the sublessee's right 
to security of tenure under the 
Landlord and Tenant Act 1954 
should be effectively excluded. 

In response to an inquiry by 
Mr Rose as to the rent payable 
under the head lease, Mr Cook's 
solicitors replied that “the word- 
ing has now been revised" and 
sent a revised draft underlease 
the rent review clause of which 
provided for a “yearly rent of 
£3.500 inclusive of general rales 
and water service charges for the 
first five years of the term 
created by the head lease . - . 
and thereafter paying for the 
periods set out in the head tease 
an amount equivalent to die 
initial rent increased by the 
same percentages as the 
landlord's rent has been in- 
creased under the terms of the 
bead lease". 


Thereafter the two ladies at- 
tended at the defendants' offices 
and Mr Rose went through the 
underlease and the head lease 
with them and dictated a letter 
u> Mr Cook’s solicitors in their 
presence. 

The company was allowed 
into possession of the rooms in 
February 1979 and the defen- 
dants received a certified copy 
of the head lease showing the 
rent of the whole building under 
the bead tease as £7,750 a year 
exclusive of rates as compared 
with the £3,500 inclusive for the 
-ground floor rooms only in the 
unde r lease. 

Problems then arose because 
the head lessor had not given 
consent to (he sub-letting of the 
mound floor rooms so that Mr 
Cook's . interest and the 
underlease were liable to for- 
feiture. 

Eventually a new underlease 
was executed with security 
under the 1954 Act excluded 
and with the bead, lessor’s 
consent. 

In 1984 the first rent reviews 
were negotiated. The rent under 
the bead tease was increased to 
£5,800 and under the terms of 
the rent review danse the yearly 
rent of the underlease rose to 
£9,022. At open market value 
the yearly rent on the underlease 
would have been £2,600. 

The defendants refused to pay 
that rent and eventually an 
assignee of Mr Cook accepted a 
surrender of the sublease. 

The matters which should 
have impinged on the mind ofa 
reasonably careful and com- 
petent solicitor practising in that 
field were that Mr Cook or his 
solicitors did not wish the 
defendants or the plaintiffs to 
know the rent being paid on the 


head lease and that Mr Cook 
was taking a bead lease of the, 
whole premises with a view to. 
subletting part. , 

Those might not have been 
sinister in (hansdves. How- 
ever, it was a most unusual rent 
review clause and should have, 
caused a reasonably careful and 
competent solicitor to think 
about it rather more carefully 
than would have been appro-, 
prime bad the danse been m a 
familiar standard form. 

. It would have been appro- 
priate to consider whether there 
wag anything in the terms of the 1 
clause which might prove dis- 
advantageous to the dienL 
On reflections involving no- 
dement of valuation, on which 
a solicitor was plainly unfitted 
to advise, a reasonably com- 
petent solicitor should have 
advised the defendants that on - 
existing information ft was 
impossible to say how the dause , 
would operate in practice, but 
that its operation might be. 
disadvantageous to the defen- 
dants; that unless both initial , 
rents were known and investi- 
gated and found to be at open 
market levels, the risk of dis-‘ 
advantage could not on the 1 
existing wording be eliminated, 
and that as matters stood the 
defendants' should not consider 
entering into a tease which 
contained foal clause. 

The plaintiffs did not give 
that advice or anything like it 


and were n egligent in felling to 
do so. The matter would be 
remitied to a Chancery Master 
for assessment of damages. 

Loud Justice 'Stephen Brown 
and the Vioe Chancellor agreed. 

Solicitors: Fairchild Grog & 
Wells; Reynolds Porter 
Chamberlain. 


Amending pleading after repudiation of contract 


tel mi mi 


Tilcon Ltd t Land and Real 
Estate Investments Ltd 

Before Lord Justice Dillon and 
Lord Justice C'room -Johnson 
[Judgment October 22] 

A pleading could be amended 
to include a claim that a contract 
had been repudiated and the 
repudiation accepted even 
though the acceptance of the 
repudiation was subsequent to 
the date of the original pleading, 
since the facts giving rise to a 
were not fresh Tacts going to a 
fresh cause of action, but merely 
related to the remedy sought. 

The Court of Appeal dis- 
missed an appeal by foe plain- 
tiffs, Tilcon Ltd. against a 
decision of Judge Paul Baker. 
QC. silling as a judge of the 
Chancery Division, whereby he 
had dismissed their appeal 
against an order of Master 
Barra 1 1 who granted the defen- 
dants. Land and Real Estate 
Investments Ltd. leave to 
amend their defence and 
counterclaim 

Mr Graham Platford for the 
plaintiffs: Mr John Harwood- 
Stevcnson for the defendants. 

LORD JUSTICE DILLON 
said that the dispute arose out of 
a contract in relation to the 
supply of clay by the defendants 
to the plaintiffs, who carried on 
the business of making facing 

bncks. 

The contract, made in June 
1983. was to last 15 years. The 

f ilaintiffs were required to pay 
or a minimum of 50.000 tons a 
year unless their failure to pay 
was due to the defendants’ 
default. 

The defendants offered a 
delivery of clay which the 
plaintiffs said was not of suit- 
able quality and they rejected it. 
By writ issued on June 22. 1984 
the plaintiffs claimed a declara- 
tion that the clay should be ofa 
particular quality and they 
claimed by way of damages 

sums relating to the testing of 
foe clay proffered by the defen- 
dants. 

The defendants served a de- 
fence and counterclaim in 
September 1984. They pleaded 
that the plaintiffs had' failed to 


pay the defendants any sum 
during the year ended June 30, 
1983 and they claimed 
£ 210 . 000 . 

In 1986 the defendants app- 
lied to amend the counterclaim 
to add a claim that the plaintiffs 
had caused the defendants fur- 
ther loss in that, repudiation 
having been accepted, the defen- 
dants suffered continuing loss, 
by virtue of not receiving fur-' 
ther minimum payments. 

They also sought to add a 
paragraph claiming that the 
plaintiffs had acted in 
rep ud ia lory breach of contract, 
which the defendants thereby 
accepted. The relief sought .was a 
declaration that the plaintiffs 
had repudiated the contract and 
that they had accepted that 
repudiation. 

The plaintiffs objected on 
somewhat technical grounds to 
the amendment being allowed. 
In The Supreme Court Practice 
1985 at pp338-339 it was dearly- 
set out that an amendment took 
effect from the date of the 
original document, and that rule 
was foe reason why a plain tiff 
might not amend his writ by 
adding a cause of action which 
accrued to him since the issue of 
the wriu 


It was said for the plain tiffe 
that a party to a contract who 
wanted to treat the contract as at 
an end had to elect to do six It 
did not automatically happen, 
and the contract came to an end 
only when be so elected. 

The innocent party had to 
accept repudiation before he 
could sue for damages on the 
footing rif repudiation, and be 
could not include his acceptance 
of repudiation in existing 
proceedings merely claiming 
damages for breach because he 
would be putting in evidence 
fects subsequent to the date of 
ihcpleadLngs. 

The defendants drew a. 
distinction between amend- 
ments which, were really only 
options for a particular form of. 
remedy and amendments which 
introduced new causes of action. 

There were many circum- 
stances in which matters tap- 

S ned after the pleadings which 
I to be dealt with at trial even 
by amendment of pleadings, 
such as special damages in 
personal injury cases. The ques- 
tion was whether acceptance of 
repudiation stood in the same 
category. 

The court's attention had 
been drawn to Johnson v Agnew 


([1980] At 367). The leading 
speech was that of Lord Wilber- 
foree, and it was plain that he 
was concerned to apply tbe 
general rules of contract law. 

The case bad not been directly 
concerned with a point of 
pleading, but it seemed fun- 
damental that tiie House of 
Lords was recognizing that the' 
vendor’s election to treat the' 
contract as repudiated did not 
have to be made before the issue 
of the writ. He was entitled to ’ 
elect during the course of the 
proceedings. 

That was inconsistent with 
the arguments put forward by 
way ofapplication. or extension, 

of Esheloy v Federated Euro- 
pean Bank Ltd ([1932] 1 KB- 

fects giving rise to tbe 
acceptance of repudiation arose ! 
before the service of the 
counterclaim and it was a 
matter going to the remedy. It 
was not a case of fresh fer-re 
necessary to complete a fresh 
cause of action.

Questioning validity of divorce 


Williams v Attorney General 
and Others 

If the validity of a marriage at 
its inception was questioned 
then the petition seeking a 
declaration that the marriage 
was valid should be presented 
under section 45 of the Matri- 
monial Causes Act 1973. How- 
ever. if the question was 
whether a valid marriage still 
subsisted or bad been dissolved, 
then the petition seeking a 
declaration relating to the mar- 
riage should be presented under 
the inherent jurisdiction. 

Mr Justice Laiey so held in 
the Family Division on October 
23 when dismissing tbe Attor- 
ney General from the suit ofMrs 
Helen Williams, of Aylesbury, 
seeking a dclaration that her 
marriage to Mr John Windsor 


Williams still subsisted on tbe - 
ground that a decree of divorce 
obtained by him in in the Stale 
of Ohio in 1963 should not be 
recognized as she had not 
received notice of the proceed- 
ings. 

HIS LORDSHIP said that the- 
application of the Attorney 

General was not « piece of legal 
pedantry. 

The Attorney General 
pointed out that it would be an 

expensive time-consuming bur- 
den on his office if he had to be 
joined in every case where it was, 
not the initial validity of the 
marriage in dispute but whether 
a subsequent foreign decree 
should be recognized. 

lire natural language of sec- 
tion 45 of the 1973 Aetcontem- 
pluied a dispute, about the 


validity of a marriage at the time 
it was entered into. 

The ^ public interest with 
which the Attorney General was 
constitutionally concerned, 
such as legitimacy, were more 
likely to anse where the initial 
validity of a - oiarriag: was 
-questioned than in those cases 
where the validity of the mar- 
riage was not in dispute but 
whether it bad been sub- 
sequently dissolved. 

- . The Attorney General was 
entitled .lb be. struck out of the - 
suit unless under the dis-' 
qetiotrary inherent jurisdiction 
there were good reasons why he 
shouM.be a party. There were no ■ 
. good reasons. 

The '.Attorney General’s 
application, would be allowed ' 
and the petition would proceed 
under the itfoerenf jurisdiction.

There we were, a great country, trying to 
reestablish a good reputation, trying to 
restore the game in this country to its 


MQlichip: showed a ‘dull resignation* 
towards the hooligan problem 


-- c>. 


1 formed a liaison committee to 
coordinate efforts to reduce the menace 
of hooliganism in Spain, so I was angry 
when MQlichip and the FA secretary, 
Ted Croker, revealed England's mascot 
for the finals. Croker had stressed that 
the marketing campaign in the build-up 
to the Spanish finals would be conducted 
with dignity, yet the FA produced 


its general secretary, Hans Bangerter. It Bulldog Bobby, the figure of a stupid, fat, 
- seemed to me when I was in office that smug beer-bellied animal which seemed 
UEFA was tucked away in a comer of to me to epitomize everything tint was 


to restore national pride and yet the 1 
we could come up with was a retarded 
bulldog wearing an England shirt and 
standing with one foot on a bail stamped 
with the words ‘Football Association 
Approved*. There was even an unfortu- 
nate connection with the National Front 
because of Bulldog , the name of one of 
that organization's newspapers. 

Then there was the FA's somersault in 
its treatment of Luton and Mill wall 
following serious crowd disorder in an 
FA Cup-tie at Luton in March 1985. 
Mill wall were fined £7.500 and Luton 
ordered to fence in the fens. Both dubs 
had a long record of indiscipline. 

A few days after the matdi, Mzllichip 
was quoted as saying: “We realise the 
sense of outrage this problem is causing 
throughout the nation. The scenes at 
Luton were the most disgraceful I have 
seen — and I've seen a lot”. 

He added: “Football has reached the 
where it is dearly unable to cope 
the problem. We seem to be living 
in an anti-police state: We are not too far 
away from a complete breakdown in law 
and order.” 

Hour months later, an FA Appeals 
Board, chaired by the same Mr 
MQlichip, quashed the guilty judgment 
on Millwall and reduced the penalties 
imposed on Luton. 

This quite inexplicable action was 
enough to make me write to the Prime 
Minister: “I have no doubt you wiD have 
shared my utter frustration over the 


decision taken by the FA Appeals 
Committee _ I should tell you that I 
have made my feelings very plain in a 
telephone conversation with Bert 
MQlichip this morning.” 

I also announced: “These decisions 
wQl astound everybody who is con- 
cerned to see the good name of football 
restored. The Government must look at 
the football authorities and the dubs to 
accept their responsibilities. I am more 
than disappointed at this example.” 

As it happened, the Prime Minist er 
had seen this latest example of football 
insurrection on television. She was most 
anxious about public order generally 
because the miners’ strike was suU on, so 
she summoned minis ters and leaders of 
the Football Association and the Foot- 
ball League to a meeting at No. 10. 

It was the first occasion she had been 
actively involved and, though she had no 
dear perception of the way in which 
football is organized in this country and 
of the governing bodies, she soon 
gasped it 

< he meeting did not get off to a 
’good start because Ted Croker 
said somewhat waspishly that 
football did not warn our 
hooligans at their sport 

I was sitting next to Robin Butler, the 
Prime Minister's principal private sec- 
retary, with Tim Renton from die 
Foreign and Commonwealth Office and 
Patrick Jenkiii, Minister for the Environ- 
ment, on my left. I almost felt like diving 
for cover under the Cabinet table 
because the k-e-r-rump of the first shell 
was remaricably dose but to Mis 
Thatcher's credit, her reply was: “Steady 
the Buffi”. 

It left Crokef’s colleagues in no doubt 
that it was not the best of starts and 
MQlichip was most uneasy, fidgeting in 
his chair during the exchange. It was 
almost sad because he had pleaded for 
years, without success, for meetings with 


graspea n 

T! 


the Home Secretary of the day. Sud- 
denly, football's leaders were round the 
table with the Prime Minister and her 
ministers and my feeling was that 
MQlichip and Co. did not know what 
they were trying to achieve or what they 
really wanted to get out of the meeting. 

She knew Jack Dunnett, the League 
president, from the Labour backbenches 
in the House and I think she had a 
healthy respect for him as a diligent 
member of Parliament. After several 
meetings, however, ft was apparent that 
neither Dunnett nor the dubs were hell- 
bent on change or, indeed, on feeing up 
to the problems that exist 1 remember 
comparing them to a boxer who didn't 
know how to fight his way out of a 
corner. 

Bernard Ingham's feelings about the 
leaders of English footbaU — expressed 
after their meeting with Mrs Thatcher in 
the wake of the Brussels disaster — 
coincided with mine, and when the 
chairmen of the League dubs endorsed a 
memorandum at a meeting in July 1 985, 
it contained nothing to make me change 
my mind. 

They accused the Government of 
doing a U-turn over alcohol provided 
inside grounds and hooliganism, they 
regarded a membership card system as 
impracticable and wrong and they 
demanded Government money to help 
make grounds safe. It was a negative 
document and more or less what 1 had 
expected. 

But the League received short shrift 
from the Prime Minister when its leaders 
went back to No. 10 to ask for 
money. “There isn't enough money in 
football?” she asked with incredulity. 
“Nonsense! What about the enormous 
transfer fees we read about, like the 
£800,000 Everton were reported to have 
paid Leicester City for Gary Lineker?” 

By then, she had ceased being taken 
aback by the shoddy housekeeping of 


many League dubs. But even she was 
amazed when I informed her that, after 
persuasive arguments by Dunnett. the 
Football Grounds Improvement Trust 
had distributed an unspent reserve of 
£3.3 million to dubs not on new work 
but on existing grants. The FG1T had 
increased the amount it already had 
given in grant aid to dubs from 75 per 
cent to 100 per cent It meant that dubs 
like, say, Manchester United had picked 
up as much as an extra £90,000 for 
ground improvements already carried 

OUL 

Mr Justice Popplewdl did a remark- 
able job to produce an interim report on 
Bradford and Brussels by July 1985 and 
his final report in the following January. 
I was delighted to read his recommenda- 
tion that consideration should be given 
to some form of membership scheme for 
League clubs in England and Wales. 

Popplewdl also recommended closed- 
circuit television at all Fust and Second 
Division clubs and at those in the Third 
and Fourth Divisions where there is a 
history of violence; be suggested making 
racial chants and obscene or racial abuse 
at soccer matches a criminal offence. 

The saddest comment of all one 
which went largely unnoticed yet was a 
staggering indictment of English footbaU, 
followed a personal letter Popplewell 
wrote to aD 92 dubs in the Football 
League inviting those interested in the 
very difficult problems of footbaU to let 
him have their views. He wanted the 
considered views of those most dosely 
affected by the problems and those with 
most experience in the game. 

“I have rather sadly to record,” he 
wrote “that over 50 out of the 92 League 
dubs did not even take the trouble to 
acknowledge receipt of my letter.”

Halifax 
face a 
drubbing 

By Keith Madeira 

The most disturbing factor 
about the Australians' unbeaten 
run is the apparently effortless 
manner in which all opposition 
is being swept aside. 

After demolishing Britain on 
Saturday the tourists travel to 
play Halifax, the champions, 
tonight and on the evidence of 
their previous games they will 
rattle-up between 20 and 30 
points against a side who have 
yet to reach tbe consistent form 
of last season, and who have 
many injury problems. 

The Kangaroos are averaging 
around 40 points per match on 
tbe tour so far and their so- 
called second string side have 
been playing as dectrifyingly as 
the imematioDal team. 

The top squad is being kept 
bade for tbe game against St 
Helens on Sunday, 

Tbe Australians have utility 
men, both part of the inter- 
national squad, cm the wings 
because of injuries. Kenny, 
centre threequarter, will (day on 
one wing and deal the burly 
second row forward, on the 
other. The cha nges are unlikely 
to disturb the team's rhythm. 

In many respects the match 
will be a return home for two 
Australian players, Martin Bella 
and Dave Langmack, who 
played outstanding parts in the 
Halifax revival two seasons ago.

How Inman’s women caught 
the others on the hop 


By Nicolas Soames 

At the dose nf the women’s 
world championship in Maas- 
tricht on Smdsy, Boy Inman, 
fee British team manager, was 
besieged by the world’s coaches. 
How did Britain produce from 
just eight weight categories 
three gold medals, one bronze 
and two fifth places? Had there 
been a massive financial input? 

Inman laughed. His budget is 
a fraction of the a m oun t dm 
French receive, hugely because 
jndo in Britain is what is potitely 
known as a minority sport. But 
wife an imaginative use of the 
money and ariBiet available, 
he says he “makes do.” 

Although Karen Briggs, now 
vrife three world ba nt a m weight

onafifyiig? for an elite grant from

40, is a former British swter- 
national who, haviim had the 
traditional training, mdadiag a 
spell at one of fee toughest 
universities in Japan, became 
the first coach to realize that 

wo men’s jndo requires a totally 
different approach. 

“When I first took over tbe 
women's squad nearly 10 years 
ago, 1 presumed that women 
would be able to do the things 1

Inman: shows way forward 
could do. It took me 18 months 

to realize bow wrong I was. 
Many of the classic throws rely 
on explosive power that was 
simply not possible for most 
women. If a man tries to throw 
an opponent and his timing is 
slightly oat, be can often power 
it through.” Inman explained. 

“Bat women cannot do this 
without special weight 
and even then it is difficult.” : 
he looked at techniques to use 
mobility and flejobilfty to 
greater advantage and devrioped 
a totally new concept for women. 
In short, jndo would only work 
for women if they learned to 
catch their opponents “on the 


was no better example 
than wires BeO. despite dislocat- 
ing her thumb, beat Gaby 
RhscheL of West Germany, wife 
a rear leg throw that involved 
virtually no strength. Yet 
Ritsche! hit the mat with such 
force that she dislocated her own 
shoulder. This approach de- 
mands Intense concentration 
and extreme fitness. Inman 
training is a physical ordeal but 
it pays dividends: Bell staying 
so fresh she conld still throw her 
French opponent for the derisive 


score in the last second of the 
final. 

Inma n has produced at least 
<me gold medal winner at each 
world championship since the 
event began in 1980, yet he 
insists that Britain bolds no 
copyright on natural (aim, only 
that “Women are prepared to 
work much harder than the men 
if they believe in what you tdl 
them to do." 

He knows it is unlikely that he 
will ever match the 1986 tally of 
three golds and a bronze. This is 
partly because women's jndo is 
developing rapidly with its ineln- 
shm in fee Olympics in 1988 as 
a demonstration sport and on 
the main programme in 1992. 
This means that the Soviet 
Union, China, South Korea and 
East Germany wiD probably 
break the dominance of the 
Western Europeans. But he is 
already loo long ahead to the 
next stage of technical develop- 
ment indicated by Miss Briggs. 

The increased use of weight 
training in the preparation work 
is already beginning to open the 
technical boundaries, bringing 
women’s jndo closer to men's. 
That is one reason why the 
Japanese admire her 

Bnt it takes years for this 
advanced work to filter through 
to dub level and only now are 
some of Inman's basic training 
ideas being incorporated into the 
work of recreational players. He 
argues strongly that contrary to 
traditional beliefs, it is of little 
use to most women to practice 
with men orach heavier and 
stronger than themselves 

Above all they need to de- 
velop mobility and flexibility, 
and look afresh at dm estab- 
lished techniques. This, be says, 
is the future iff women’s jndo at

MOTOR RALLYING 


Britons relegated to second place 


Delhi (Reuter) — Herwig 
Nelissen of Belgium was de- 
clared winner of tbe seventh 
Himalayan Rally yesterday after 
a row over time penalties 
pushed GeoffWarkup of Britain 
Into second place. 

Warkup crossed fee finishing 
line in the capital first on 
Monday, but Nelissen and his 
compatriot Firm in Tbierie com- 
plained feat route marshalls had 
wrongly given them 10 lime 


penalties on the first leg of the 
rally. 

Stewards upheld tbe appeal 
and on Monday night declared 
fee provisional result an un- 
precedented lie between the 
Belgian and. Briton. However, 
stewards said yesterday morn- 
ing feat Nelissen had won fee 
2.840-km (1,775-mile) rally 
according to the “festest and 
cleanest” rule. 

They quoted fee FISA rule 
book as saying: “In case of a ue 


fee crew that completed the 
greatest portion of fee route 
from the start wife the least 
penalties for lateness will be the 
winner.” 

Ian North. Warkup's British 
colleague, said they were happy 
simply to have finished in the 
top five in their Lada. "We 
never thought we stood a chance 
against top-class vehicles like 
fee Ford RS 200 and Opel

RACING: FINDON CHASER CAN TOP THE BILL AT ASCOT 


Smart Captain Dawn 
ready to continue 
Gifford’s winning run 


By Mandarin (Michael Phillips) 


Captain Dawn is napped to 
continue his own and trainer 
Josh Gifford's excellent start 
to the season by winning the 
valuable Crockfords Trophy 
Handicap Chase at Ascot to- 
day. 

After winning his first three 
races of the season at Fontwefl 
the Findon based I O-year-old 
then travelled further afield to 
Cheltenham where he proved 
that the bigger, stiffer fences 
were no problem at all for 
him. 

While beating Rivera Edge, 
RentaghosL Charcoal Wally 
and Peter Anthony in decisive 
style he also managed to lop 
live seconds off the previous 
course record. Needless to say, 
that race was run on firm, fast 
ground. 

In the circumstances no one 
need worry about the similar 
state of the course at Ascot this 
afternoon as far as Captain 
Dawn is concerned. 

Last season Captain Dawn 
also put up one of his best 
performances at Cheltenham 
where he was runner-up to the 
smart Peariyman in the Grand 
Annual Challenge Cup on the 
first day of the National Hunt 
Festival The following after- 
noon Roadster ran equally 


we(( when finishing second to 
The Tsarevich in the Mildmay 
of Flete Challenge Cup. 

While conceding that Road- 
ster is. or at least was basically 
the better horse on his day. 
Captain Dawn does seem to 
have improved and it is still 
pertinent to point out that 
Roadster also seems to need a 
race or two to bring him to his 
peak. So on what is his 
seasonal debut now the 
advantage should lie with 
Captain Dawn, who is as hard 
as nails already. 

Likewise, I believe that it 
will be expecting too much of 
Far Bridge to win. While he is 
also unquestionably smart at 
his peak be did miss the whole 
of last season. So the likeli- 
hood is be will be a bit rusty. 

Admiral's Cup, the winner 
of this race 12 months ago, 
takes pot luck again. But 
following that rather lack- 
lustre performance in the race 
won by Voice Of Progress at 
Newbury last Friday I do not 
fancy him now. 

His owner, trainer and 
jockey can enjoy better luck 
with his younger half-brother 
Montgomery who dearly has 
Teletrader to beat in the EBF 
Novices’ Hurdle (qualifier). 


Those with one eye cocked 
on next month's Hennessy 
Cognac Gold Cup at Newbury 
will be interested to see bow 
Door Latch, who won the 
SGB Steeplechase over 
today's course and distance 
last winter, performs in the 
Bagshoi Handicap which will 
be his first race of the current 
term. 

My feeling is that be will 
excel ifhe manages to beat any 
of his three race-rivals. 
Acarine. Castle Warden and 
Duke Of Milan. 

At the weights 1 just prefer 
Acarine, who showed himself 
to be in fine fettle on a trip to 
Scandinavia early this month 
when he ran away with the 
Norwegian Grand National at 
OvrevolL 

Following that meritorious 
win over fences at Uttoxeter 
last week, Gordon Richards is 
now running Little Bay over 
the smaller obstacles in the 
Ekbalco Hurdle at Newcastle. 

These are precisely the sort 
of tactics that should appeal to 
this enigmatic character and I 
will not be remotely surprise if 
he relishes the challenge for 
once. At the weights be has the 
ability to beat the others. 


Patriotic shows plenty of courage 


Patriotic, puffing her nay to 
the front more than two furlongs 
from borne in the Full Choke 
Handicap at Nottingham yes- 
terday, battled on gamely for 
Alan Mackay when challenged 
either side dose heme by Carou- 
sel Rocket BIU * Nimble Native, 
land ing tbe prize in a finish of 
short beads. 

-We to tbe conclusion 
this was the oaly possible objec- 
tive for Patriotic after she had 


iran a seller at Gttferick In 
August. She is a alow, but honest 
fOly and two miles and a quarter 
at Nottingham seemed ideal,* 1 
said her trainer, Mark Prescott. 

Patriotic was the Newmarket 
trainer’s 39th success this sea- 
son from a string of SO, hnt, like 
bis stable jockey George 
DaffieM, be does not think be 
will beat his best total of winners 
in a season. ^Although I shall 


have three or four move runners. 
1 don't think I'D get it,” said 
Prescott, who needs just one 
mope success. 

Henry Cedi produced another 
exciting prospect when Legal 
EM, a son of SpedacriaTiSd 
and a half-brother to Law 
Society, tamed the Whattnn 
Manor Stud Stakes into a 
procession, umwing home by 
seven lengths from Tiquegrean.

The dual classic winner Mid-

Sales on November 10, con- 
firmed her Newmarket trainer, 
Ben Han bury, after his Abu

Tbe winner kept to his low

fast time out, but he was beaten 
by Game Thatcher. That was a 
good race, though- This is only 
my third two-year-old winner 
this season. The colts are still a 
bit backward”. 

Azyaa, the 1 1-4 favourite, 
finished very fast in the hands of 
Tony Murray, who last week, 
announced he would be retiring 
as a jockey at the end of tbe 
season because of weight prob- 
lems. Soon he expects to an- 
nounce plans concerning his 
firture role in racing. 

The successful apprentice 
Gary Bard well now needs just 
one more winner to lose his 71b- 
daim. Attached to Mick Ryan’s 
Newmarket yard, BardweD was 
seen at his best when bringing 
tbe 7-1 chance Polynor borne by 
thxeequarters of a length in the 
Brass Castle Selling Handicap. 

Mick Gough re pre se nti n g 
Ryan, said: “ Polynor won a 
couple of races when trained in 
Belgium and is the stable’s 30th 
success of tbe season. 1 expect he 
tvill now go hurdling. He has 
been well schooled at borne.” 

Polynor, tucked in behind the 
leaders early on, came through 
to lead inside the final furlong. 
There was no bid for him at the 
subsequent auction. 

Aircraftie, runner-up in her 
latest two races, raised her scad 
value with a half-length victory 
over Rare Legend in the firs 
division of the Links Maiden 
Stakes.

At home in North Wales: Joe Mycock still keeps a loving eye, and has strong views, on the game of his youth

different men in differing ways.” 

The ultimate conservation-stop- 
per followed: “I once bit Dennis 
Chapman, one of my own front 
row forwards. He was a big, heavy 
man, but without aggression, so 1 
bit his backside. He seemed a bit 
snrpd^ed and asked me why I had 
done it. 1 replied: ‘Because I want 
you to stir youndf'” 

He recalled with some nostalgia 
a conversation with Evans during a 

pat lipiilari y rlwn anrirng I jmcarfure 

match. “Evans took a really hard 
knock and there was a lot of blood 
about I parted his hair to have a 
look and be said: ‘Bloody good job 
it was my head. It’s the only part of 
me that could have stood it*” 
Mycock's theories with regard to 
the wwf for dynamic captaincy 
were tested in his first inter- 
national, Wales versus England at 
Cardiff Arms Park shortly after the 
war. To the Welsh, starved of 
international rugby, the game was 


like a revivalist meeting, but it was 
England who triumphed 9-6 before 
44,000 spectators. “Keith Scott was 
inpired, so I spoke to him, but he 
didn't warn to come oil! I put him 
on the wing, took Steele-Bodgcrout 
of the pack and put him behind 
Scott. The Press called it ‘enterpris- 
ing captaincy,' but the selectors 
were furious.” 

Mycock, who was bom in Man- 
chester and educated at Giggles- 
wick, spent much of the war as a 
technical instructor in the RAF in 
Iceland, represented South Wales 
against the British Army (under the 
name of ‘Llewelyn Mycock’) and 
played his dub rugby for Sale. This 
was in the balmy days of WooUer, 
Claude Davey, Carl Noden, Hal 
Sever and Ken Fyfe among a galaxy 
of distinguished players. He then 
joined Harlequins when business 
took him to London. He played for 
Lancashire and had En glan d trials 
as a flanker, but it was his move to 


lock that earned him mternational 
honours. 

Now, fiving happily in retire- 
ment with Pat, his wife, in the 
Conway Valley in North Wales, 
Mycock, like a demanding parent, 
pasts a loving eye on the contem- 
porary game: “I deplore the in- 
crease of injuries and I think the 
need to stay on your feet to avoid 
the pile-up should be written in 
letters of blood in every coaching 
mamuil- Like most people I think 
too many points come from pen- 
alties.” 

As a forward who had a univer- 
sal name for scrupulous fairness 
and keen play, Mycock also feels 
strongly that the really vicious 
players, should be dropped at any 
ieveL “If I had authority in the 
game today, I would be an inno- 
vator, but I believe passionately in 
the amateur game.”

Injuries 
worry 
for Irish 

By George Ace 

Question marks hang over 
Michael Kiernan and Phillip 
Matthews for Saturday’s inter- 
national against Romania at 
Lansdowne Road Kiernan has 
a thigh injury and Matthews is 
unhappy with the response to 
treatment on an Achilles tendon 
injury. 

Both w31 have fitness tests 
when the Irish squad assemble 
in Dublin tomorrow. 

The selectors may summon 
Morrow, the Ulster No 8, and 
Irwin, the Ulster captain, to 
Dublin as a precautionary 
measure.

which leaves tomorrow for a 
four-day training camp in Por-

Pinnegar, his dub colleague 
from Wasps, and - Richard

The amendments to the orig-

The addition of Lozow sl ri, 
who is 25, is recognition of the 
form displayed by the Wasps 
back division this season. Cer- 
tainly in the recent mutch 
against Cardiff he and Rob 
Andrew were combining to great 
effect in midfield; there is, of 
course, another Wasps 
threequarter in the England 
squad in Mark Bailey, the wing. 
LozowsJd’s last season was 
marred by a broken leg which 
kept him out of the John Player 
Special Cup final against Bath 
but he has since indicated a 
complete recovery. _ 

Another to perform well in 
that same Cardiff match was 
Pinnegar, now 26, who occupies 
foe vacancy in the squad left by 
his former dub colleague. Mau- 
rice Coldough, now with Swan- 
sea. Pinnegar, a West 
countryman, toured with Eng- 
land Students in 1982 and 

England Under-23 the following 
year; he has since matured into a 
valuable front-of-tbe-line 
jumper and shows welcome 
mobility for a sixteeo-and-a- 
hatf stone man. 

Don Rutherford, the Rugby 
Football Union's technical 
administrator, said 

yesterday^ We have decided not 
to call up replacements for all 
foe backs who have pulled out 
because we have adequate 
cover. We are not drafting in 
another No 8 in place ofEgerton 
as his dub colleagues, Paul 
Simpson and John Hall, have 
both played litem before.” 

The England party fly out 
early tomorrow morning to the 


Algarve; they will be joined on 
Friday by Roger Quittenton, the 
England international panel ref- 
eree. who will handle foe game 
against a Portuguese XV on 
Saturday. 

A French national side will 
make a rare non-international 
visit to Britain at the beginning 
of next season when they play 
four matches against Scottish 
district sides next September. It 
is part of a reciprocal arrange- 
ment following Scotland's most 
recent visit to Spam and France 
last May. 

They win play Glasgow 
(September 16), an Anglo-Scms 
XV (September 1 9) at a venue in 
foe Scottish North and Mid- 
lands, Edinburgh (September 
23) and a Scottish District XV 
(September 26) at a venue in the 
Borders. Since the final fixture 
will involve a team drawn from 
all five Scottish districts, it will 
be a very strong team and the 
Scottish Rugby Union antici- 
pate that France wfl] bring an

Four new 
players 
for Kent 

By David Hands 

Kent, beaten finalists in last 
season’s county championship^ 
sponsored by Thom EML in- 
troduce four new players against 
Middlesex at the Stoop Me- 
morial ground this afternoon, 
among them Richard 
Langhorne, the Harlequins lock, 
who performed well for his dub 
against Robert Norster at Car- 
diff last weekend. 

His contest with Sean 
O'Leary (Wasps), who is the 
only change in the Middlesex 
team from that which beat 
Surrey a fortnight ago, will be 
relevant to foe London selectors 
who may be happy with Colin 
Pinnegar as one member of their 
second row but have a wide 
choice for his partner. 

Indeed, the divisional selec- 
tors are watching the county 
championship with as much 
interest as they are the dub 
scene. Paul Jackson, last year’s 
divisional No 8, is currently 
leading Middlesex but is not 
regularly available for Harle- 
quins, his dub; Rob Cheval, 
who played for London against 
Paris last season, remains loyal 
to Askeans but is a force to be 
reckoned with for Kent. 

Surrey will be led by Simon 
Henderson (Rosslyn Park) when 
they play Eastern Counties on 
the Westcliffians ground at 
Southend. Mike Gibson, who 
led them against Middlesex, is 
playing for Ireland against 
Romania on Saturday and is 
unavailable, as is Jeff Probyn, 
foe England squad prop from 
Wasps. 

Ralph Kuhn, the Loudon 

Irish stand-off half, forms a new 
partnership with Alex 
Woodhouse (Harlequins) 
against a home side whose 
captain, Richard Sumner, is 
restored to health and to the left 
wing. Sumner, formerly of 
Wasps, is now a member of the 
thriving Sudbury club who pro- 
vide half the Eastern Counties 
pack.

WeBfagfem (AFP) — Repre- 
sentatives of the 16 nations who 
win play in the first Rugby 
Union World Cup next year 
continued their tour of facilities 
fa New Zealand yesterday, con- 
fident the tournament would aot 
be threatened by any rebel tour 
of South Africa. 

Rumour s of a boycott of foe 
tournament, which s wlwilslinl 
for May ami June in New 
Zealand and Australia, followed 
a tour of South Africa by a New 
Zealand Cavaliers die earlier 
this year and suggestions that 
top Australian players would 

defy their union and play in the 
Republic next year. 

John KendaB-Carpenter, foe 
Bn gfigh r hat rm u n gf foe World 
Cap c omm i tt e e , said he saw 


“little danger" to the tnwr- 
aameat from a possible Austra- 
lian rebel torn. He befieved the 
tournament's success would be 
re i nfo rced by foe almost certain 
Australian refusal to make an 
official torn of Sooth Africa. 

The Australian ru gby coach, 
Alan Jones, has supported foe 
idea of such a tour bat World 
Cup orgtnisers in New Zealand 
are confident that the Australian 
Rugby Union wfll reject any

logo while racing in the United 
States fa a deal negotiated by 
Mark McCormack's Inter- 
national Management Group. 
The Chicago race is losing its 
sole sponsor and is nurturing the 
Nissan company, a competitor, 
as sponsor. 

With Mis Kristiansen likely 
to break her world best in 
Chicago, foe race director. Bob 
Bright, was incensed dial a 
photograph of her with a 10 x 4 
inch logo would be flashed 
across the world. 

Bright said: “It would have 
been advertising for a sponsor 
making no contnbition here and 
gening all kinds of free pub- 
licity. Ingrid has run here for 
three years and been paid 
handsomely. Wc aha paid foe 
expenses for seven of her assis- 
tants to attend this year. For her 
to wear a shin that is inconsis- 
tent with our sponsors is 
inconsiderate. ** 

Mrs Kristiansen responded: 
“He knew I ran for Mazda 
before I come here. 1 will never 
run here again if Bob Bright is 
involved.” 

During the argument. Bright 
told Mrs Kristiansen foal she 
could have her $40,000 appear- 
ance fee and not run, while Mrs 
Kristiansen offered to forego the 
fee, and ran to win foe $40,000 
first prize. Bright was backed by 
foe New York race director, 
Fred Lebow, who has, “a more 
serious programme with de 
Castelia.” The New York race is 
sponsored by Mercedes for 
$400,000 and the winners get a 
car. 

A compromise was reached 
over the size of lettering but 
Lebow said yesterday that the 
Kristiansen camp reneged. 
“This makes for bad relations 
with IMG and the athletes. De 
Castelia will run but the prob- 
lem is not resolved. Any ftrture 
negotiations with athletes win 
have to include what they 
wear,” Lebow said. 

Budd does 
not need 
operation 

From Ray Kennedy 
Johannesburg 

Zola Budd is up and running 
again and at this stage does not 
need an operation for a hip 
iqjury. This was the verdict 
yesterday of Professor Johan 
Cilliers, of foe orthopaedic 
department at foe National 
Hospital in foe runner’s home 
town of Bloemfontein. 

Last week Professor Olliers 
said that if the injury — known 
as a bursa, which is basically an 
inflammation in foe hip area — 
did not respond to treatment an 
operation might be necessary. It 
would seriously delay Miss 
Budd's return to Britain to start 
training for her defence of the 
world cross-country title next 
March. 

The injury was detected only 
when she returned to South 
Africa after her disappointing 
performance in the European 
Champioosips. Professor 
Cilliers said yesterday that Miss 
Budd was busy with a rehabilita- 
tion programme and had re- 
sumed running. An operation 
was definitely not necessary at 
this stage. The injury. Professor 
Cilliers said, bad responded well 
to treatment that included injec- 
tions to heal foe infected bursa.
