BBC ‘bias’ in 
Libya report 

By Philip Webster, CbkSTotitksd Camspoadeat 


In the roost severe indict- 
ment of BBC standards deliv- 
ered by a senior politician. Mr 
Norman Tebbit yesterday ac- 
cused the corporation of in- 
accuracy, innuendo, 
imbalance and uncritical car- 
riage of Libyan propaganda in 
its coverage of the US air 
strike against Tripoli in ApriL 
The Conservative chairman 
took relations between the 
BBC and the Government to

page dossier on coverage of

impact had been damaging to

ments and helpfid to the 
Libyans, be said. 

His move caused a sharp 
reaction at Westminster, with 
Mr Ndl Kinnock, the Labour 
leader, accusing him of 
attempting to undermine the 
independence of the 
corporation. 

But it delighted Conser- 
vative MPs and ministers

widespread criticism of ttife

By Jonathan Miller 
Media Correspondent - 

The BBC last night reacted 
angrily to the attack by Mr 
Norman Tebbit over alleged 
bias in reports on the Ameri- 
can bombing of Libya, and 
said the corporation would 


or. a legitimate defensive ac- answer the accusations. 


It will intensify calls for the 
removal of Mr Alasdair 
Milne, director-general. 

The Central Office dossier 
concentrated on two bulletins

age and in a covering loser to 
the acting chairman, Lord 
Barnett, Mr Tebbit said the 
analysis raised serious ques- 
tions “as to way in which the 
BBC reports the news.” 

“Indeed you may conclude 
that for from being balanced, 

-fair and im partial, the cover- 
age was a mixture of news, 
views, speculation, error and 
uncritical carriage of Libyan 
propaganda which does seri-

said, thought that the BBC has

The report, by the CAA‘s

reported in 1985, of which 37 
were judged to have been

traffic control. That is 25.8 per

Saudis call for

Nigeria 
crisis 
blow to 
BCal 

■ By Our Air Correspondent 

A currency crisis in Nigeria 
is threat ening to send British 
Caledonian spiralling towaids 
a loss. 

The independent airline’s 
financial year ends today. And 
worried executives fear that 
when the accounts have been 
completed they wifl show that 
the Nigerian problem alone 
will have led to a slump in j 
revenue of between £10 and i 
£15 million. If this is carried 
forward into the final accounts j 
it could mean that BCAL nil! j 
have lost money for only the 
second time since the oil crisis ! 
of 1 973. i 

Much of the damage has ' 
been done in the test month. | 
off-setting encouraging signs | 
that business was picking up 


The new acting Oil Minister 
for Saudi Arabia, Mr Hisham 
Nazer, last night called for an 
urgent meeting of the price- 
fixing committee of the 
Organization of Petroleum 
Exporting Committee. 

The minister, whose sudden 
replacement of the long-serv- 
ing Sheikh Ahmed Zaki Ya- 
mani sent oil markets into 
confusion yesterday , said the 
committee should start work 
immediately. 

According to the Saudi 
Press Agency, Mr Nazer said 
he had sent an urgent letter to 
Opec’s secretary-general pro- 
posing a meeting before “next 
month”. The next Islamic 
month starts on Sunday. 

As analysts considered the 
implications of the surpise 
change, oil prices moved 
erratically. The price of Brent, 
the most widely traded North 
Sea crude, fell at first on fears 
that Sheikh Yamani’s dis- 
missal could prompt a split in 
Opec. 

But prices later rallied, with 
Brent, for delivery in Decem- 
ber, cloang 30 cents higher at 
$13.50. 

The pound weakened in 
early trading but strengthened 
again during the day on the 
back of a stronger dollar. It 
closed higher against most 
world currencies but fell 1.4 
cents against the dollar to 
$1.3970. 

In Paris, a senior Saudi 
Cabinet minister said the 
kingdom's policies would not 
change. The Interior Minister, 
Prince Nayef Ibn Abdulaziz, 
said: “There is no change in 
Saudi Arabia's policy. Our 
policies do not change when 
the personalities are 
changed.” 


The Oil Minister's replace- 
ment was “one of those things 
which happen in every coun- 
try in the world. There is 
nothing surprising in that," he 
insisted, adding that there was 
“no particular reason" for his

concentrated on the Gulf War 
and bilateral relations which 
he described as “very strong 
and firm’. 

Sheikh Yamani had been 
the Oil Minister since 1962 
and was widely credited as the 
architect of Opec’s strategy. A 
royal decree gave no reason 
for his dismissal, nor any 
indication of his pennenani 
successor. 

In Jakarta, the Indonesian 
Mines and Energy Minister 
Subroto, a former Opec presi- 
dent, said the u&facemeni of 
Sheikh Yamani would bring 
little change within Opec. 

He said world oil prices 
would rise to between $15 and 
$17 a barrel next year, and to 
$18 in 1988, in line with the 
targets set by Opec last week 
when it agreed to extend its 
ceiling on production. 

Opec members reconvene 
in early December to renew 
their wrangling on oil quotas 
and prices. The Saudis have 
made it clear they are unwill- 
ing to sec another temporary 
agreement on curbs and are 
likely to insist that output 
quotas are renegotiated.

Spanish police 
shoot dead 
AA executive 

-Madrid — Mr Joe Rajiab, an 
Automobile Association exec- 
utive from Basingstoke, was 
shot dead by Spanish drug 
squad police sear Seville late 
on Wednesday night, police 
said yesterday 

Police claim that the detec-

vehicle with Cordoba licence 
plates, followed Mr Rspah, 
aged 46, as he drove with his 
daughter, aged, 12 , in rented 
car from Seville airport to- 
wards Cordoba. 

When the police stopped Mr

Japan is preparing to cut its 
dikotmt rate by % per cent to 
3 per cent today. 

This would late further 
pressure for an increase off 
British and American interest 
rates. 

Dealers in London wel- 
comed the news from Tokyo 
and matted prices sharply 
higher, despite continuing 
problems with the Stock 
Exchange’s new computerized 
dealing system. There was 
selective support for leading

to a record set of third quarter

Frauds hit benefit system 


More than 80 per cent of 
local authorities race big diffi- 
culties administering housing 
benefit because of constant 
rule changes and fraudulent 
claims, according to a report 
published today. “Although 
some local authorities have 
now succeeded in getting on 
top of the problem, many are 
still experiencing significant 
difficulties in dealing with the 
level of fraud and abuse in 
housing benefits,” the report, 
Housing Benefits Ad- 
ministration: How to do it 
better , says. 

Because of complacency 
and lack of awareness, the 
report claims, some local 


By Michael Dynes 

authorities do not yet appre- 
ciate the underlying problems 
of fraud which may have left 
them “sitting on a volcano” of 
bousing benefit abuse. 

Local authorities, who pay 
an estimated £4.5 billion in 
housing benefit with admin- 
istrative costs of £150 million 
a year, have been the subject 
of growing concern about the 
spiralling costs and alleged 
abuse of the housing benefit 
system. 

In response to that concern, 
the Chartered Institute of 
Public Finance and Accoun- 
tancy. which produced the 
report, invited 176 of the 403 
local authorities in England 


and Wales to take pan in a 
survey designed to identify the 
main difficulties encountered 
in administering housing ben- 
efits. Of those invited , 149 
completed the detailed 
questionnaires. 

The survey showed that 
122, or 82 per cent of the 
respondents had problems in 
administering housing bene- 
fits because of constant rule 
changes, deliberate fraud and 
abuse by claimants, difficulty 
with computer systems and 
inadequate levels of staffing.

Provide homes to rent says Patten 

By Christopher Warman Property Correspondent 


The next challenge in hors- 
ing is to tackle the deep-seated 
problems of rented housing. 
Mr John Patten, Minister for 
Housing, Urban Affairs and 
Construction, said yesterday. 

The public sector amid not 
provide an adequate supply of 
good quality rented lousi j*, 
he told a conference organised 
by the British Property 
Federation in Brighton. 

“Private investment Is need- 
ed and if rented boosing is 
again to become attractive to 
private investors it most pro- 


vide them with a reasonable 
return.” 

Mr Patten said the Govern- 
ment had provided the dimate 
in which a commercial retain 
could be found in housing, and 
the revival of the rented sector 
could be achieved if private 
investors and developers took 
advantage of the new opportu- 
nities soon to be opened by the 
Building Societies Ac t and the 
Housing and Planning BDL 

Under the act, societies wiD 
he able to own residential land 


and buildings as commercial 
assets, enabling them to invest 
in shared ownership or rented 
boosing either directly or 
throoph lending to boosing 
associations. 

“For years people have said 
that it was impossible to make 
money oat of rented housing. 
We are changing that- For 
years shared ownership has 
been the preserve of local 
authorities and pnbfidy fun- 
ded housing associations. We 
are t'hanfnng that.”

Farmer’s 
right to 
shoot dog 

By Ian Smith 

The right of fanners to 
shoot dogs worrying their 
sheep .was upheld by mag- 
istrates yesterdayin a test 
court case monitored by the 
National Farmers Union and 
Animal Liberation Front 

Had the decision gone the 
other way, farmers would 
have been powerless to pre- 
vent a dramatic upsurge in the 
10,000 attacks on livestock 
each year, said the NFU. 

A court in Todmorden, , 
West Yorkshire, was told that , 
Mr Robert Walker,aged 40, a ; 
magistrate, shot two pet dogs 
he thought were about to ! 
attack his flock of 14 sheep i 
and 17 lambs on his 
smallholding. 

He buried the dogs in the 
garden at his home at Bog Eggs 
Farm, Wadsworth, Hebden 
Bridge. West Yorkshire, and 
next day rang the police. 

He was later charged him 
under Section 1 of the Crim- 
inal Damages Act 1971. The 
two dogs, cross bull terriers 
aged about 20 months, wens 
spotted playing in the same 
field as the sheep by Mr 
William Hart, a neighbour, 
who immediately rang the 
magistrate to tell him they 
were not dangerous. 

But as he was in the middle 
of his call, he heard the 
telephone being dropped and 
seconds later he heard four 
shots. 

Since the incident Mr 
Walker, a computer consul- 
tant has had obscene graffiti 
daubed on his wall by Animal 
Liberation campaigners who 
failed to materialize outside 
the court yesterday after warn- 
ing of a mass picket. 

Threatening letters have 
also been sent to his home. 

Mr Walker was found not 
guilty and awarded costs. 



relations will strengthen the 
hand of the Foreign Office, 
which is determined to main- 
tain a strong garrison in the 
Falklands. Mr Younger, by 
contrast is under considerable 
pressure to reduce the ganison 
in order to alleviate an already 
overstretched defence budget 
The wording of Sir Geof- 
frey's statement which repeat- 
edly condemned Argentine 
aggression and intransigence, 
was seen as unchar- 
acteristically strong, and cer- 


tainly provoked an angry 
response from Buenos Aires. 

MPs are also extremely 
sceptical about Sir Geoffrey's 
assurance that two fisheries 
protection vessels and one 
surveillance aircraft would be 
adequate to police such a huge 
expanse of water. 

Sir Geoffrey emphasized 
that this limit ed force would 
be backed up by military 
intervention if necessary. 

In June the defence select 


committee produced a report 
claimin g that this ycsfs £16,4 
billion defence budget would 
be reduced by 4.5 per cent m 
real terms by 1989iiFaBdands 
expenditure was excluded, 
and by 6.6 per cent if that 
expenditure was included. 

The report concluded that 
cuts or delays would not be 
avoided by better manage- 
ment alone, and said that 
“there is a risk of an adverse 
effect on operational capa- 
bility”.

Alice in Wonderland, A search 
for the girl who starred in a 
BBC television production of 
the story 20 years ago ended 
yesterday when an alert reader 
of The Times recognized a 
photograph (right) of the miss- 
ing actress (Garin Bell writes). 

Miss Anne-Marie Mallik is 
now Mrs Hoxstep, and 34, 
the wife of a Royal Navy 
t Jentenaat-Gnmna nder 
mother of four children. She 
lives in Southsea. Hampshire. 


The BBC had been looking 
for “Alice” to give her a fee for 
repeating the programme next 
Sunday drarisg its fiftwrti an- 
niversary. 

Mrs Huxstep emerged from 
behind the looking glass yes- 
terday rather amused, partict 
forty since she had never 
wished to pnrsne an acting 
career. “It was just a one-off 
thiwg - 1 didn’t actually think I

Protesters face law threat 


Anti-nudear protesters who 
yesterday breached a High 
Court injunction which bus 
them from obstructing test 
drilling at a proposed nuclear 
waste dump in Bedfordshire 
could face court action. 

Nirex, the Government’s 
nuclear waste agency, said it is 
considering moves to ensure 
the demonstrators obeyed the 
court order. 

In a dawn raid yesterday, 
five anti-nuclear protesters 
chained themselves to drilling 
rigs and two gates leading to 
the main excavation area at 
the Elstow site. 

Another 20 protesters, 
members of the group, 
Bedfordshire Against Nuclear 
Dumping, also gained access 


By Trndi McIntosh 

to the dump and formed a 
human blockade in front of 
one of the excavation area's 
gates. 

Within hours contractors, 
employed by Nirex, had cut 
through the protesters’ chains 
and padlocks with bolt cutters 
and broken through the hu- 
man blockade, which sealed 
off the excavation compound. 

A Nirex spokeswoman said 
the demonstration had “bla- 
tantly breached” the terms of 
die High Court injunction. 

“We will be taking action 
against the individual pro- 
testers to make sure they 
comply with the iqjunctkm,” 
she said. 

Mrs Mieke Hinchliffe- 
Wood, a spokeswoman for the 


protesters, said the "surprise 
demonstration” was aimed to 
delay test drifting and show 
Nirex that the Bedfordshire 
people had not given up their 
campaign- 

“We will keep up a policy of j 
non-violent, unexpected j 
tactics,” Mrs Hinchliffe-Wood 
of Biggleswade, Bedfordshire, 
said. 

Mr Jim Ekfridge^ a teacher 
from Dunstable, Bedford- 
shire, who chained himself to 
a compound gate for two and a 
half hours, said he will wait to 
see whether Nirex resorts to 
court action. 

Mr Eldridge and Mrs 
Hinchliffe-Wood are among 
16 people named in the 
injunction. 


Mr Michael Hesd&M jjjnt 
back to MersCTside yesterday 
five years after the Pn me 
Minister gave him special 

responsibility for ifonBJ- 

ana found himself treated 
like a returning hero. 

Even before the 
Cabinet minister reached 
Knowsley to support Mr 
Roger Brown, the Conser- 
vative candidate in the form- 
coming by-election, the 
Alliance and Labour camps 
openly acknowledged the 
charismatic polracan s efforts 
to revitalize the area. 

But it was when he stepped 
from his chauffeur-driven Jag- 
uar in an estate once known. as 
Cannibal Farm because of its 
notorious record Of crime ana 
vandalism that the strength of 
genuine appreciation for his 
efforts as Minis ter for 
Merseyside became apparent. 

Housewives repeatedly 
s to pped to tefl him of the 
improvements that had occ- 
urred since he masterminded 
the £30 million scheme 

When the Stockbridge vil- 
lage project is completed 20- 
storcy-hugh tower blocks, now 
empty and vandalized, will be 
replaced by thousands of 
houses. 

After his hour Mr Heseitine 
said: "When I first came here 
this was one of the most 
despairing of urban fringe, no- 
go council estates. It had very 
forge areas of empty property 
and an atmosphere which 

ke^av^^^m^ter^Says 
Bank, the Abbey National 
Building Society and the local 
authority got together there 
was new hope and life there. 

Earlier Mr Jack Straw, a 
Labour Environment spokes- 
man who is " minde r” for the 
Labour candidate, said Mr 
Heseitine had been genuinely 
concerned about Merseyside's 
problems and had wanted to 
do something about them. 

Miss Rosemary Cooper, the 
Liberal candidate said the 
former Cabinet Minister's 
ideas had been extremely 
benefidaL "He has been the 
only person in the Tory party 
who has made any effort to 
recognize that the people here 
need help and if they get help 
they will be able to stand on 
then* own two feet and fight 
back”. 

Miss Cooper who attempts 
to overcome deficiencies in 
explaining her party's policy 
by repeatedly concentrating 
on the local influence of 
Militant, invited journalists to 
the Kirkby unemployed centre 
which she daimed was the 
Trotskyist organisation's local 
headquarters. 

She complained that money 
supplied by Kncvwdey council 
to fund the centre would be 
better used in helping to create 
400 jobs.

Keighley Barton murder 


‘Depraved* stepfather jailed 


Christmas tree boom 
after the wet weather 


Ronald Barton was jailed 
for life yesterday with a 
recommendation he serves at 
least 25 years, for foe abduc- 
tion and murder of his step- 
daughter, Keighley, aged 14. 
Her body has never been 
found. 

Passing sentence at the Cen- 
tral Criminal Court, Mr Jus- 
tice Turner said: “There is no 
question you are an evil, 
cynical and depraved man 
from whom society — includ- 
ing your wife and family — are 
entitled to.be and wifi be 
protected for many years.” 

After foe jury found him 
guilty, the court was told that 
Barton, a minirah driver, had 
eight previous convictions for 
indecent assaults mi girls and 
women aged between 14 and 
21, and a conviction fin* gross 
indecency with Keighley when " 
she was nine. 

The judge told Barton, aged 
46, that he was satisfied that 
for many years he sexually 
abused the girL 

Barton, ofMildenhall Road, 
Clapton, east London, not 
only sexually debased the girt 
but was prepared “to commit 
the ultimate crime of murder 
against that poor gill in an 
effort to avoid foe punishment 
that awaited you,” the judge 
said. 

It was also, he said, a means 
of getting at his wife. The 
jury’s verdicts showed that it 
was Barton’s mind behind two 
letters the girl wrote after she 
was abducted. In one to her 
mother foe described her as 
selfish and greedy. But, the 
judge said, it was Barton who 
was selfish and greedy. 

The jury was sent out to 
consider its verdicts on 
Wednesday and spent the 
night in a hotel Bart on w as 
found guilty on both counts by 
a 10-2 majority. 

The girl dis a ppe a red in 
August last year while taking 
foe family dog for a walk near 
her home in Sebert Road, 
Forest Gate, east London.

r panel explaining the additional 
v resources the Government was 
7 willing to make available for 
teachers' pay in England and 
Wales and spelling out its 
c conditions for releasing those 
resources. 

- He went on: The Government 
will make additional resources 
available only when two very 
important conditions are deliv- 

“ ered. 

First, there must be a pay 
structure with differentials 
which reflect the varying 
responsibilities of teachers and 
the need to recruit, retain and 
motivate teachers throughout 
the school system and at all 
stages of tbeir careers. The pay 
structure envisaged at the Cov- 
entry meeting in July does not 
meet this condition. 

A structure more in line with 
the recommendations in the 
Main committee's report [on 
Scotland] is necessary, and I 
have set out such a structure in 
the letter. All teachers will 
receive higher pay. more than 
half of them on promoted posts 
reflecting varying responsibil- 
ities. The crucial importance of 
head teachers, who carry the 
biggest responsibilities, will be 
recognized. 

The second condition js that 
teachers’ professional duties 
must be more sharply defined 
and clarified leaving no room 
for ambiguity about their duties 
and this must be carried through 
into enforceable contracts of 
employment. 

Contracts and conditions of 
service must be brought into 
line with the 19 points under 
discussion at the Coventry 
meeting. In particular, school- 
teachers should be under an 
express contract ural obligation 
to cover for absent colleagues, 
and to be available to work at 
the direction of head teachers 
for 1300 hours over 195 days 
each year. All of this is set out in 
more detail in the letter. 

In return for delivery of these 
conditions, teachers' pay would 
be increased in two instalments. 
The first instalment would in- 
crease average schoolt e achers' 
pay by 83 per cent from January 
1, 1987, and the second instal- 
ment would be a further 83 per 
cent from October 1, 1987. 

These two instalments would 
cover the foil percentage in- 
crease in average 
schoolteachers' pay implied by 
the Main committee's recom- 
mendations. This would settle 
teachers’ pay for 1986-87 and 
1987-88. The increase of 8.2 per 
cent from January 1 means that 
teachers’ pay will have increased 
by over 16 percent since March 
this year. 

Teachers win have had an 
average 25 per cent increase 
over the two years to October 
1987. This means that a good

honours graduate in his third 
year would receive after two 
years’ teaching £ 10 , 000 , an in- 
crease of about 20 percent Tbe 
head of the largest comprehen- 
sive would get an increase from 
£26,250 to £30300. 

I want to emphasize that these 
increases are ooly justified by 
the fundamental change in the. 
terms, conditions and structure 
of the service which must 
accompany them. 

If, and only if. these con- 
ditions are met is the Govern- 


ment prepared to add £118 
million in 1986-87 and £490 
million in 1987-88 to planned 
expenditure on education m 
England and Wales. Education 
grant-related expenditures 
(GREs) would be increased 
accordingly. 

Block grants to local educa- 
tion authorities would be in- 
creased by £56 million in 1986- 
87 and £200 million in 1987-88. 
The cost of these increases 
would have to be shared by 
taxpayers and ratepayer. We 
estimate that rates would in- 
crease by between 2 per cent and 
4 per cent compared with the 
decisions that local authorities 
would otherwise have taken. 

I hope that the meeting at 
Nottingham will accept the 
position I have outlined. I look 
to the employers and unions to 
act quickly and positively. 

I must make it dear that the 
matter must now be resolved on 
all the terms and conditions I 
have set out. The Government 
will not be p rep are d to amend 
them further, or to make any 
additional resources available. 

Over the past few years it has 
become widely aocepeted that 
the present negotiating machin- 
ery should be replaced. 

The Government therefore 
intends to repeal the Remunera- 
tion of Teachers Act and to 
bring forward proposals to this 
House for new machinery which 
will involve an interim commit- 
tee to advise the Secretary of 
State on conditions of service 
and distribution of pay within 
the resources available 
Mr Giles Radkc. chief Opposi- 
tion spokesman on education, 
said that parents would want to 
know why, if money was now 
available for teachers* pay, it 
had not been available two years 
earlier. All the disruption, tur- 
moil and /tamagp* of the pro- 
longed dispute could have been 
avoided if the Government had 
come up with that kind of 
money in 1984. 

"Perhaps the most important 
question of all is: will today's 
announcement improve the 
chances of a settlement next 
week at Nottingham, or make it 
harder?" 

Mr Baker said he rejected the 
idea that a settlement would 
have come about two years ago. 
Continued meetings had foiled 
to produce a settlement and 

6 Teachers and 
parents sick to death 

of dispute 9 

during those two years there had 
been disruption in schools. Chil- 
dren were entitled to uninter- 
rupted education. 

How would teaching stan- 
dards and quality in the class- 
room be improved? The 
proposals provided five rates of 
allowance to be added to the 
scale salary, ranging from £900 
to £4,800, and these recognized 
the quality of leaching in the 
.classroom. Most secondary 
teachers could go to an upper 
level, if they were worth it. of 
£16300 or£17,500. 

On the question of the elev- 
enth hour, Mr Baker said he had 
been accused by Mr Radice last 
week of dithering. 

"Now he accuses me of being 
provocative. Is it provocative to 
announce the Government is 
prepared to make funds avail- 
able on a substantial scale for 
teachers? 

Mr Alan Beith (Berwick-upon- 
Tweed. L) said that most teach- 
ers and parents were side to 

of tiie dispute and if Mr 
Baker was able to secure agree- 
ment he would earn their 
thanks, unless be blew it by 
leaving no room for discussion. 

Would he look again at his 
proposals for the future because, 
in the small print, it looked as if 
he wanted to take total control 
of teachers' pay 
Mr Baker said be did not 
believe his statement would 
derail the Nottingham meeting. 
He had provided the framework 
for the negotiators who could 
now go to Nottingham with the 
Government's position made 
crystal dear. 

• Mr Malcolm Riflriort, Sec- 
retary of State for Scotland, 
made a statement setting out 
similar proposals for Scottish 
schools based on the 
recoomendations of the 
committee and under Sir Peter 
Main. This contained an in- 
divisible package nria tying the 
pay, duties and conditions of 
service, staffing standards and 
negotiating machinery. 


Ministers announce 
S Africa measures 

By Nicholas Wood, Political Reporter 


The Government yesterday 
ann ounced details of vol- 
untary moves to put pressure 
on South Africa to abolish 
apartheid. 

The measures, agreed in 
principle at the Common- 
wealth mini-summit in July, 
when Britain rejected punitive 
sanctions, cover new invest- 
ment and tourism. 

Yesterday, Mr Paul 
Channon, Secretary of State 
for Trade and Industry, said 
the financial measures cover 
new acquisitions of share and 
loan capital of South African 
companies and loans and 
capital injections through in- 
ter-company. head office and 
branch bank accounts. 

But the appeal for a limited 
cash embargo by British firms 
does not include financial 

transactions and bank lending 
supporting normal trading 
activity. Also excluded are aid 


for training, health and social 
sectors. 

New direct investment by 
British companies in 1984 
amounted to £56 million. 

Mr Channon said: “I be- 
lieve that British industry, 
which has repeatedly sup- 
ported calls for fundamental 
social and political reform in 
South Africa, is ready to play 
its part in helping 

"Given the extent of exist- 
ing UK investment in South 
Africa, wholehearted co-op- 
eration by British companies 
with the voluntary ban on new 
new investment should have 
considerable impact.” 

Lord Young of Grafham, 
Secretary of State for Employ- 
mem. and Mr David Trippier, 
-Minister for Tourism, ap- 
pealed to travel agents, tour 
operators and carriers not to 
promote holidays in South 
Africa.

Soviet and United Sta t es, it is

would be happy to go on selling

reason to look at the cruise

Mr Nd Kinnock, Leader of the 
Opposition, earlier complained 
that foe Government had not 
volunteered a statement on the 
Reykjavik summit, nor re- 
sponded to Labour requests. 

"Does she recall saying to foe 
US Congress last year that 
nothing in foe ABM Treaty 
precludes research, hot that if 
that leads to development, it 
was a matter for negotiation 
under the treaty? 

"Is that the position, in view 
of the much less clear and

saying: If we had had a state-

In view of President Reagan's

systems in forme negotiations, 
and his proposal to get. rid of 
them over 10 years, is she 
prepared to reconsider Trident, 
especially in view of the effect 
on our conventional defence 




There should be no doubt about 
the strength of tbe Gov- 
ernment’s resolve in dealing 
with the hijacking of British 
lamb exports by French formers, 
Mr Michael Jotping, Minister 
of State for Agriculture, Fish- 
eries and Food, said during 
question time in the Commons. 

He was replying to Mr 
Bry nm cr John (Pontypridd, 
Lab), who had asked if he had 
raised the issue in discussions 
with representatives of the form- 
ing industry. 

“Might I ask what steps, 
beyond writing to the French 
President and foe president of 
tbe Commission, he proposes to 
take? 

Will he make it dear in words 
even M Guillaume (the French 
Minister of Agriculture) can 
understand, that the French 
have not a unique prescriptive 
right to strain the CAP rules? 

“If we were to respond in 
kind, they would have much 
more to lose." 

Mr Jopling: I have spoken with 
M Guillaume about foe hijack- 
ings and it has been raised with 
M Mitterrand and both have 
given assurances that fresh, firm 
instructions have been given to 
the police authorities mid that 
compensation would be paid. 

The House must not be in any 
doubt about the strength of the 
Government's resolve on this 
matter and that tbe action of 
lawless French producers, or 
interference with imports, are 
absolutely unacceptable to us. 
Mr Philip Oppenheim (Amber 
Valley, C): Would ft not be 
sensible to i nsi st that all imports 
of Perrier Water be routed 
through Aberdeen for analysis 
as an incentive for tbe French to 
stop interferring with sheep? 

Mr Jopling: He gives us, in 
general terms, food for thought.

but I think he would agree that 
at a time when we are criticizing 
French citizens for lawlessness, 
we ought not to be resorting to 
lawlessness ourselves. 

• United Kingdom cereal 
production this year was es- 
timated at 24.6 million tonnes. 
Mr John Gammer, Minister of 
State for Agriculture, Fisheries 
and Food, said during Com- 
mons questions. 

Mr Timothy Yeo (South Suffolk, 
C) said that uncertainty about 
the nature of measures to cut 
surpluses bad been the principal 
source of anxiety among pro- 
ducers. Above ail, a dear and 
firm indication of how surpluses 
were to be tackled was needed. 

Mr Gammer said that was 
why Britain was in the lead in 
seeking a p acka ge of measures 
which would relieve that un- 
certainty. But the uncertainty 
arose primarily because, where- 
as foe former used to be certain 
of a market becanse be was in a 
world of shortage, today the 
former was not sure of the 
market because he was in a 
world of surplus. 

Mr Michael Latham (Rutland 
and Melton, C) asked what were 
foe Government’s objections to 
a compulsory set-aside policy. 
Was ft because it would mean 
that only marginal land would 
be taken out of production? 

Mr Gmnmer said Britain was 
one of the most efficient cereal 
producers in the Community 
and in the world. He did not 
want a system which so re- 
stricted cereal production that it 

CTicpfi unfair discriminatio n 

against the good producer. 

That was one dang e r of 
having a compulsory system. It 


was better to have a voluntary | 
system where those wishing to 
go out did so and enabled those 
who could produce cereals 
competitively and efficiently, 
including many in Britain, to 
continue doing so. 

• Deaths on forms were run- 
ning at a much lower level so for 
this year. Mr Donald Thomp- 
son, Parliamentary Secretary, i 
Ministry of Agriculture, Fish- 
eries and Food, said during 
Commons questions when be 
made his first appearance at the 
d es pa t ch box since his appoint- 
ment in Sq ptember. 

Mr Donald Dixon (Jazrvw, Lab) 
bad said that in 1985 form 

deaths rose by ooe fifth over the 
previous year. 

"Farming is the second most 
dangerous industry in this 
country", he said. He asked Mr 
Thompson to ensure that there 
were no more cuts in the 
number of agriculture inspec- 
tors and said more should be 
appointed. 

Mr Thompson said there were 
165 inspectors and they were 
nine under staff Tbe Hearth and 
Safety Executive was doing afl ft 
could to recruit more. 

Mr Th omp son confirmed that 
there would not be any cuts in 
foe Health and Safety Executive 
dealing with form workers and 
said the service would be dosely 
monitored and sustained by the 
Government. 

Mr Staart Randall, an Opposi- 
tion spokesman on agriculture, 
asked what plans there were to 
make roll-over protection com- 
pulsory on all tractors. 

Mr Thompson said the Health 
and Safety Executive were con- 
stantly examining such 
provisions. 

He told MPs that advice by 
his department to formers 
emphasized safely. 


over grain 
for Syria 

The Prime Minister regretted 
that nothing could be done 
about discounted sales of grain 
by die EEC to Syria when she 
and Mr Michael Jopling, Min- 
ister of Agriculture, were ques- 
tioned about grain sales after the 
break of diplomatic relations 
with Syria. 

Mr Jonathan Sayeed (Bristol, 
EastiC): Can you explain why 
tbe European Commission is 
selling cut-price grain to Syria? 
It is irritating and there is anger 
at this subsidy of state terrorists. 
Mrs Thatcha? Normal refunds 
apply to all external sales and I 
am afraid there is nothing we 
can do about that but there wfl] 
be no special rates of refund 
following a meeting of the 
Foreign Ministers Council 

There was no embargo on 
United Kingdom exports to 
Syria, Mr Michael JepHng, 
Minister of Stale for Agri- 
culture, Fisheries and Food, 

Mr^Nicbofes Bnfen (Wolver- 
hampton Sooth West, Q said 
the best evktenoe of over- 
production of feed wheal came 
from The Times today which 
said the EEC was so desperate to 
get rid of its surplus feed wheat 
mat it was continuing to sefl 
substantial quotas with an ex- 
port subsidy to Syria. 

Dr Mark Hughes (Gty of 
Durham, Lab) said that to 
dispose of surpluses to Syria 
under EEC arrangements that 
Britain could not change was 
offensive. 

Mr John Gammer, Minister 
ofStatefbr Agriculture, said that 
Dr Hughes was only underlining 
the reason that Britain had 
made a big effort and was taking 
foe lead to ensure that supply 
and demand should be brought 
into balance.

MPs yesterday accused the 
Government of seeking to 
introduce curbs on select 
committees through "back 
door” methods when publicly 
it has said it has no such 
intention. 

It is understood that the 
paragraph in foe government's 
reply to the Westland report 
which says civil servants will 
be instructed not to answer 
questions about their own or 
colleagues' conduct has al- 
ready been distributed. 

This is despite foe assurance 
given by Mr John Biffen, 
Leader of the House, during 
the Westland debate On 
Wednesday night that they 
would not be "finally and 
formally" issued until foe 
Liaison committee of select 
committee chairmen had had 
a chance to comment 

Mr Biffen's comments were 
widely interpreted as a climb- 


down by tbe government, 
which had declared its inten- 
tion to issue the instructions 
in its response to the Westland 
report, but some Labour MPs 
believe that by sending out foe 
instructions the government 
will already have achieved its 
purpose. 

Dr John Gilbert, senior 
Labour member of the defence 
committee, said that civil 
servants may not have re- 
ceived formal instructions yet, 
"but a nod's as good as a wink. 

"It's a clear indication of the 
government's intention, and 
any civil servant with a mind 
to his future will be guided by 
it immediately.”

This softs Ne3 Kinnock well 
enough. That is the section Ire

reason to doubt that that is 
where his heart stffl ties. As an

shares in fail measure both die

and the centre-right 

But he has net been trans-

The BBC and Libya 


Tebbit criticizes the 


‘biased’ coverage of 
US bombing attack 


..i.l * ’ ". 


^ I enclose an analysis 
w which Conservative 
Central Office has marfp of 
BBC TV’s news coverage of 
the US raid on Libya in- April 
of -this year. 

li raises some very serious 
questions as to the way in 
which the BBC reports the 
news. For our analysis, we 
have taken as a yardstick the 
BBC’s own public commit- 
ment to impartiality »nH 
balance. 

In the light of our evidence 
you may feel that the BBC 
news rep o rt i ng in this in- 
stance at leastTfell far short of 
the high standards which the 
corporation espouses. Indeed, 
you may conclude that fir 
from being balanced, fair, and 
impartial, the coverage was a 
mixture of news, views, 
speculation, error, and uncriti- 
cal carriage of Libyan propa- 
ganda which does serious 
damage to the reputation of 
the BBC. 


Mr Norman Tebbit, chairman of the Conservative Party, 
yesterday handed a detailed dossier to the BBC which alleged 


and current affairs. It was accompanied by a letter to the acting 

rhainmn of the BBC’s board of governors, Lori Barnett. Ctepks 
were also sent to the director-general of the BBC, Mr Alasdair 
Milne and the c o rporation’s chairman d esign a te , Mr 
Mannadnke Hussey. 


From my many years of 
association with the 




BBC, I 

know that most of your staff 
are deeply proud of their 
association with the best 
known broadcasting operation 
in the world. 

I also know that many of 


them fed that the BBC has lost 
its way. Perhaps the news 
coverage of the Libyan attack 
is a reflection of this lade of 
direction. 

I have no way of knowing 
whether the coverage was 
affected by bias, incom- 
petence, low professional stan- 
dards or simple error — 
although I am sure you win 
have your own opinion on 
that 

However, I am sure that it is 
neither in the interests of the 
Government, the political 
parties, the taxpayers, the 
BBC, or its employees, that 
such criticizm is capable of 
being made. 

We have tried to aigne our 
anal ysis in de tail. I expect that 
you too will make your own 
detailed analysis. 

However, that would miss 
the point I am making, which 


is to question whether an 
increasingly subjective and 
confrontational style of BBC 
news coverage is appropriate 
fora public service broadcast- 
ing sytem, funded by the 
taxpayer, required to empha- 
size impartiality, objectivity, 
and factual reporting. 


I hope you will agree that 
this analysis and criticizm 
which the BBC received from 
various other quartos re- 
cently, makes it a p pr o p riate 
for you to undertake a thor- 
ough reappraisal of the man- 
agerial aim editorial standards 

which are currently in opera- 
tion for your TV news 
coverage. 

Given the considerable pub- 
lic interest in this issue, I 
intend to issue copies of this 
tetter and its attach- ^

Both Scotland Yard and a 
spokesman for Sir Thomas 
spin yesterday that no de- 
cision had been taken to 
prosecute the MP. But they 
confirmed that the police are 
investigating allegations, orig- 
inally published in a Sunday 
newspaper, that Mr Proctor 


invited youths to his home for 
spanking sessions. 

After studying _ the news-

asked Commander William 
Huckksby, head of Scotlatri 
Yard's serious crimes squad, 
to prepare a preliminary re- 
port setting out details of the 
allegations. The police were 
then asked to gather evidence 
for a bigger report. 

A special team of officers 
has been set up by Mr 
Hucklesby to interview tho 
youths allegedly involved. _ 

Mr Proctor, who has denied 
the allegations, said yesterday 
that the first he knew of 
possible proceedings was a 
late night telephone call from 
a newspaper. He said he 
telephoned Sir Michael Ha- 
vers, QC. the Attorney Gen-

to the Libyan case. The BBC 
made the principal feature of 
its news the “worldwide

throughout the broadcast.

very difficult approach, which 
emphasized hard feet, li chose 
to lead the story with a factual 
report of the diplomatic reper- 
cussions between the super- 
powers, rather than the vague 
phrases such as “worldwide

the BBC. ITN did not attempt 
to hide the civilian casualties,

BBC coverage of these evrats 

represented a serious and

Isolated instances of error 
are understandable, but we | 
believe that the BBC’s cover- ;

impact is profound, damaging 
to the American and British

Legal profession backs 
move to help people to 
challenge public bodies 


By Frances Gibb, Legal Affairs Correspondent 


Backing for a new Director 
ofGvil Proceedings to protect 
the interests of the citizen 
taking legal action against 
public authorities is mounting 
among judges and lawyers in 
the face of a huge rise in 
actions challenging decisions 
by government. 

The idea, put up earlier this 
year by Lord Justice Woolf, a 
Court of Appeal judge, has 
wide support among lawyers 
who met yesterday to form the 
new Administrative Law Bar 
Association. 

The group has been created 
because of the recent massive 
growth in administrative law 
and role of the courts in 
reviewing decisions where 
previously administrative dis- 
cretion went Unchecked- 

Applications for judicial re- 
view, the way individuals can 
challenge decisions of public 
bodies, have risen by 100 per 
cent since 1981. That year 
applications totalled 533; in 

1982 the figure was 685: in 

1 983 it was 850: in 1 984 it rose 
to 931 and last vear it was 
1,230. 

Lord Justice Woolf the 
association president, says 
judges are increasingly being 
called on to supervise the 
activities of public bodies. 

“It is now commonplace to 
have central government at- 


tacking local government de- 
cisions, local government 
attacking central government 
decisions and one local 
authority challenging the de- 
cisions of another.” 

One reason, be says, is a 
change m attitude. Previously 
if the legality of a course of 
action was in doubt it was not 
adopted. 

“New it appears to be 
coming a case of anything is 
pe rmiss ible unless and until it 
is stopped by the courts.*' 

But in his address last night 
he said that if judicial review 
interfered unduly with the 
functioning of poolic bodies it 
would result in governments 
"‘out of a sense of frustration 
seeking to exclude the super- 
vision of the courts as is now 
happening in the United 
States”. 

The proposed Director of 
Civil Proceedings would have 
similar status to the Director 
of Public Prosecutions. 

He would have wide powers 
to take up cases; have access to 
the papera of public bodies: 
and enforce court orders 
which at present can be 
flouted: individuals may ob- 
tain orders against public 
bodies who for political rea- 
sons refuse to comply with 
them. 

There is also backing among 


leading legal academics, 
including Professor John Grif- 
fith at the London School of 
Economics and Professor Gra- 
ham Zeilick, of Queen Mary 
Cffllege, London. 

“Such a job needs to be 
done and one way would be to 
remove the Attorney General 
from the Government and 
give him responsibility,” Prof- 
essor Zeilick said. 


Academics are concerned 
that governments are avoiding 
scrutiny of their decisions by 
the courts by increasing use of 
informal administrative rules 
instead of primary legislation. 

Mr Robert Baldwin, a law 
lecturer at Brunei University, 
and Mr John Houghton, a 
researcher, say in a recent 
article in Public Law that each 
time a government confronts 
a difficult regulatory task, it 
“seems to come up with a sew 
device: a code of practice, 
guidance note, circular, ap- 
proved code and so on. 

Those include the code of 
practice on the number of 
{rickets; the codes on deten- 
tion arid questioning by pol- 
ice; statements on parole 
policy, and informal rules in 
areas such as immigration, 
housing, family proceedings, 
planning and health and safety j 
at work. i

WORLD SUMMARY 


Amal offer fails 


to ease tension 


Bumf - In n conciliatory gesture that failed to ease ten- 
sions, the Shia Muslim Ainu yesterday annovaced 
fee release of 26 Palestinians from soothera Lebanon who, 
it said, were planning to pmw^p • military Mfhfiwi in 
feree refugee camps in Beirut (Joan Carlos Gnnrado 
writes). 

Radio reports said fee UKii were handed orei to a. SyriflH 
military observer and were expected to be driv en “back 
where they came from”. 

The release had no effect in reducing the hostility 
between Amal and fee Palestinians after a month of 
intermittent fighting in the Tjre area and a confrontation in 
the nflls east of Siflos last week. Palestinian leaders have 
repeatedly claimed that Amal had rounded up and arrested 
“■hundreds" of men Inins in the Hashidiyeh refugee camp, 
which is. still under siege. 



Contra 


bases 


San JosA Costa Rica — 
US officials hare refused to 
comment on reports from 
Washington and Hoedms 
that the CtA will establish 
Contra military bases and 
snpjdy lines to the an&r 
Sandnusta rebels on Hon- 
dnran islands, near the 
Nicaraguan coast, radad* 
mg Tigre and the Great 
Swaa. 


Pakistan reshuffle 


Islamabad — Mr Aziz Mnnsbi, Pakistan's Attoanoey- 
GenenL has resmied “for personal reasons' 4 , and Mr 
Mohyuddin Batnch, has been refiered of his post as 
Minister of Commerce to become Minister Without 
Portfolio (Hasan Akbtar writes). 

At fee same time Quetta was rocked by its most violent 
armed clashes between Pafean and Batoch transport 
operators, in which up to 10 people were reported killed. 

Mr Baluch is fee only nutfciug Cabinet minister from 
Baluchistan Province. 


Chileans 

exiled 


Minister 


quits 


— Two Chil- 
eans have left for exile, as 
port of an official amnesty, 
after spending almost two 
years in asylum in the 
Swedish Embassy in Santi- 
ago (A Correspondent 
writes). They were accused 
of attacking a police station 
in November 3984. 


Madrid —Spain's ruling 
Socialist Party has praised 
fee decision by Sedor 
Demetrio Madrid to step 
down as Socialist Chief 
Minister of Casrile-Lefa, 
after a court ordered him to 
stand trial oo fraud 
(Richard Wigg writes), 
denies the charge. 


Masterpiece saved 


Moscow (Reuter) - A 350-year-oM Rembrandt master- 
piece vandalized at Leningrad's Hermitage museum last 
year suffered only surface damage and is bring successfully

Tass quoted fee Hermitage director, Mr Boris 
PSotnyvsky, as saying sulphuric add thrown at

Muted reaction to Falklands fishing zone 


Argentina sticks to war of words 


From Ednardo Coe 
Buenos Aires 


Argentina yesterday can- 
oiled eaxiy discharges for all 
conscripts in the armed ser- 
vices and created a top-level 
military committee in re- 
sponse to Britain’s decision to 
establish a 200-mile fishing 
conservation zone around the 
Falkland itbnik 1 

Sefior Horatio Jaunarena, 
fee Defence Minister, refused 
to say how many conscripts 
would be kepi in uniform. In 
recent years Argentinian con- 
scripts have been released 
before the end of their one- 
year tour of duty for budgetary 
reasons. There are about 
35,000 conscripts in all three 
services. 

Official reaction to fee Brit- 
ish move has been relatively 
mild in view of fee strong 
emotions the Falklands issue 
raises here. President Alfonsin 
cancelled a planned television 
address to the nation on 


Wednesday night, apparently 
having been convinced by a 
number of Cabinet members 
that it would be best not to 
dramatize the issue. The Gov- 
ernment contented itself wife 



President Alfonsin right, and fee Defence Minister, Sefior Hondo Juanaxena, leave a surprise cabinet meeting yesterday. 


fee release of a long commn- 
ajqu6 rafting fee British de- 
cision “juridically and 
politically unacceptable*'. 

Senor Jaunarena was vague 
about whether the armed 
forces were in a state of alert. 
But be said the coastguard had 
not received new instructions 
and added: “Frankly, I think 
it's ridiculous to say feat fee 
response on fee part of Argen- 
tina is warlike." Buenos Aires 
did not want to be “dragged 
into a conflict" wife Britain 
over fee matter.

From Christopher Walker

Reflecting a widespread 


view here, Senor Jaunarena 
indicated that Britain’s move 


may have been in part dic- 
tated by internal British poli- 
tics, reflecting jtbat Mis 
Margaret Thatcher will soon 
have to seek re-election. 

Senor Dante Gapnto, fee 
Foreign Minister,! yesterday 
morning called in fee ambas- 
sadors of fee countries that 
fish in fee South Atlantic to 
say that Argentinian policy on 
fee issue was unchanged. 
Argentina has signed bilateral 
fishing agreements (wife the 
Soviet Union and IBulgaria, 
allowing them to fish is tbe- 
dispuicd waters. ' 

The National Defence 
Committee created on 
Wednesday was to have been 
established anyway under a 


law now before Congress. 

leading article, i page 21 


The Soviet Union yesterday 
condemned Britain's decision 
to impose tite fishing con- 
servation zone around the 
Falkland Islands, churning 
that it was in direct breach of 
United Nations resolutions 
covering international conduct 
in the South Atlantic. 

The first Soviet reaction had 
been keenly awaited in White- 
hall, which appears to have 
fakgn a gamble on 

Soviet goodwill, following 
hints in London earlier this 
year from Mr Ednard Shev- 
ardnadze, tile Soviet Foreign 
Minister, feat Moscow would 
not cause trouble in fee region. 
' Questioned by The Times nt 
a press c on ference here Mr 
Gemnady Gerasimov, fee 
Kremlin's chief spokesman, 
said: “It is deplorable that the 
British ride has taken imi- 
taieral steps raining counter 
to the UN decision on those 
islands.**

GM strikers seek 
‘conscience cash’ 


From Ray Kennedy, Port Elizabeth 


South Africa's first anti- 
disinvestment strike entered 
its second day yesterday with 
thousands of workers at Gen- 
eral Motors camping out in 
works canteens and locker 
rooms. 

The American-owned car 
firm is palling out of fee 
country and handing over to 
local management. 

GM management has ac- 
cused fee strikers of demand- 
ing “some form of conscience 
money for our withdrawal 
from South Africa." 

The sit-in strike — one of the 
strangest in South Africa since 
black trade unions gained 
legal recognition 10 years ago 
— has been called by three 
blade unions, the National 
Automobile and Allied Work- 
ers Union (NAAWU) which 
represents two-thirds of the 
3,000-strong labour force, fee 
Metalworkers Union, and the 
Motor Assemblers and 
Component Workers Union. 
It is also being supported by 
some of the white supervisory 
staff 

They are demanding sev- 
erance pay from GM before 


fee company is handed over 
to local management, fee 
repayment of benefit fond 
contributions, and representa- 
tion on the board of the new 
local management when it 
takes over early next year. 

The strike has brought 
assembly lines to a halt on the 
eve of a new model launch in 
which GM has invested £10 
million. The success of fee 
new model the Monza, is vital 
not only to GM*s survival in a 
depressed car market but also 
for Port Elizabeth itself where 
car-building is the lifelin e. 

Mr Freddie Saul fee gen- 
eral-secretary of NAAWU, 
said yesterdaythat fee strikers 
were adamant over their de- 
mand for one month's sev- 


erance pay for each year 
before the company 


worked 

was handed over. 

On Wednesday night, GM 
was granted a court order 
ratling on the unions to show 
cause by Monday why the 
strike should not be declared 
unlawful 

If fee unions foil to do so, 
fee firm win be legally entitled 
to dismiss the strikers.

British Government sour- 
ces have confirmed that about 

500.000 tonnes of British bar- 
ley and 600.000 tonnes of 
wheat were sold to the Soviet 
Union last week with record 
subsidies in a move to stop 
vast quantities of grain being 
sold into EEC stores. 

Officials fed everything in 
their power to ensure that 
traders were able to sell every- 
thing the Russians required, 
blowing feat delays would 
leave fee market open to 
competing supplies from fee 
US and other exporters. 

Sales at fee EECs weekly 
export tender, where traders 
bid for subsidies from the 
European Farm Fund, did not 
come up to Soviet demands. 

EEC export houses bid for 
subsidies oti a total of 1.4 
million tonnes, but only 

585.000 tonnes of wheat and 

1 16.000 tonnes of barley were 
sold because some bids went 
for more than fee Brussels 
authorities were prepared to 
pay. 


Vatican 

condemns 

homosexual 

behaviour 


From Peter NichoRs 
Rome 


The Vatican rejects in just 
three words any idea feat 
homosexuality might be re- 
garded as a morally acceptable 
option: “It is not". 

The unequivocal condem- 
nation comes in fee historic 
first document to deal specifi- 
cally and solely wife homo- 
sexuality to be Issued by the 
Sacred Congregation for fee 
Doctrine of fee Faith, fee 
former Holy Office and the 
Vatican’s highest arbiter on 
questions of wife and morals- 

The document is signed by 
Cardinal Ratzlnger, the 
Church’s German watchdog 
over doctrinal questions, and 
was approved by the Pope. 
The mark of the Pope’s own 
views is heavy oo it 

The document takes the 
form of a tetter to Catholic 
bishops and opens by pointing 
out tut fee subject of homo- 
sexuality and the moral 
evaluation or homosexual acts 
pave increasingly become ft 
matter for public debate. 

**Since this debate often 
advances arguments and 
makes assertions inconsistent 
wife fee teaching of the Catho- 
lic Church, it is quite rightly a 
cause for concern to uti en- 
gaged in the pastoral ministry,' 
and this congregation has 
judged H to be of sufficiently 
grave and widespread im- 
portance to address to fee 
bishops of fee Catholic 
Church this tetter on the 
pastoral care of homosexual 
persons". 

The condemnation of homo- 
sexuality is seen to be con- 
tained in Old and New 
Testament teachings begin- 
ning right back at Genesis. 

The document says: “To 
choose someone of fee same 
sex for one's sexual activity is 
to annul the rich symbolism 
and meaning, not to men turn 
fee goals, of the creator's 
sexual design. Homosexual 
activity is sot a com- 
plementary union able to 
transmit lue: and so it thwarts 
the call to a life of that form of 
self-giving which the Gospel 
says is the essence of Chris- 
tian tiring. 

“This does not mean that 
homosexual persons are not 
often generous and giving of 
themselves; bat when they 
engage in homosexual activity 
they confirm within them- 
selves a disordered sexual 
inclination which is essentially 
self-indulgent"

New body 
setup 
to attack 
censorship 

By Carofine Moorehead 

A new international hmasn 
rights body. Article 19, so 
called after the danse of 
freedom of opinion and ex- 
w es s io n hi the 1948 Universal 
Declaration of Human Rights, 
was fanwrhrf hi L ondo n yes- 
terday “to document censor- 
ship, defeat the censors and 
help toe censored”. 

The organization, hugely 
assembled by Mr Martin 
Ensals, former secretary-goi- 
end of Amnesty Interna tion al, 
was the brauchOd of Mr 
Roderick MacArtbnr, a Chi- 
cago philanthropist and jour- 
nalist, who arranged fending 
before his death in 1984. 

Aftide 19's staff of eight 
will ran a co mp u te r-based 
centre in south London provid- 
ing in fo rmation about censor- 
ship, conduct research and 
eventually produce reports on 
freedom of information all 
over tiie worid. 

Other organizations, most 
particularly Index on Censor-- 
skip, already provide an eff- 
i ecthre service in this corner of 
human rights. Where Article 
19 will differ, says its new 
director, Mr Kevni Boyle, is in 
its scale and its role as 
campaigner and lobbyist at the 
(JN, where it will emphasize 
censorship as a violation of 
h uman rights and make free- 
dom of opinion and expression 
a matter of international con- 
cern and research. 


Swedish unions tamed 

State workers lose 
pay parity battle 

From Christopher Mosey, Stockholm 


Industrial action by state 
and municipal workers that 
has disrupted Sweden's usu- 
ally efficient welfare state for 
the past month ended yes- 
terday in defeat for the unions 
on the crucial issue of pay 
parity with private industry. 

The central organizations 
representing the unions, vital 
components of the so-called 
Swedish model for wage 
bargaining, which has guar- 
anteed post-war industrial 
stability, were threatened with 
a revolt by individual unions 
which had expected a better 
agreement. 

In the end, after the most 
complicated and drawn-out 
dispute in toe public sector, 
the unions were riven 8.8 per 
cent, a rise of only (X3 per cent 
on the Government's last 
offer, the spuming of which a 
week ago led to a strike of 
30.000 workers and a work-to- 
rtile by another 200,000. 

The 8.8 per cent must now 
be divided between the vari- 
ous unions concerned, repre- 
senting 1.5 million workers. 

Even as toe settlement was 
announced, the nurses’ union 
demanded that its members 
should receive the whole 8.8 
per cent at the expense of 
other employees in day-care 
centres and municipal admin- 
istration. 

Mr Store Nordh, chairman 
of K.TK, the central bargain- 
ing organization, admitted 
defeat 


“Of course I am not 
satisfied,” he said. “We have 
achieved an improvement for 
our members but we were 
simply faced with forces for 
too powerful for us to win the 
issue of pay parity with the 
private sector.” 

He said he bad no {dans to 
resign and added: “Our mem- 
bers are sensible. They know 
what we were up agaiuSL” 

The settlement of the dis- 
pute is a victory for the 
Socialist Government beaded 
by Mr lngvar Carlsson, toe 
Prime Minister, whose ami- 
inflationary policies would, 
have been wrecked by an 
agreement on pay parity. 

The settlement, in which 
state mediators played a vital 
role, was a defeat for the 
tendency towards increased 
militancy among public sector 
unions, held responsible in 
recent years for holding the 
public to ransom in pursuit of 
settlements. 

Public opinion, tradition- 
ally left-orientated, had veered 
completely against the unions 
as Swedes watched geriatric 
patients shunted between hos- 
pitals because of ward clo- 
sures, and were left holding 
the baby when staff walked 
out of day-care centres. 

In its low-key way, the 
settlement probably repre- 
sents a domestic watershed 
comparable to that of Mrs 
Thatcher's taming of union 
militancy in Britain.

Chirac to make 
statement on 
terrorism and 
Middle East 


THE TIMES FRIDAY OCTOBER 31 1986 

Rebel bishop welcomed in Tulsa 


From Diana Geddes, Paris 


M Jacques Chirac is consid- 
ering makin g a policy state- 
ment on terrorism and the 
Middle East “within the next 
10 days", the Prime Minister’s 
office said yesterday. 

The announcement came as 
politicians on both right and 
left stepped up their pressure 
on the Government to clarify 
its policy on the Middle East 
and to give Britain more 
support over the Hindawi 

affair 

The policy statement would 
be made just before the meet- 
ing of the EEC foreign min- 
isters in London on Nov- 
ember 10, at which Syria’s 
involvement in terrorist acts 
is again likely to top the 
agenda. 

According to M Jean-Ber- 
nard Raimond, the Foreign 
Minister, France has already 
accepted nine of the 11 mea- 
sures put forward by Britain 
on that issue-at last weekend's 
meeting in Luxembourg, and 
would also be prepared to 
back a ban on arms sales to 
Syria. 

M Denis Baudoirin, the 
Prime Minister’s spokesman, 
yesterday firmly denied the 
existence of any deal with 
Syria on securinga truce in the 


• terrorist attacks against 
France. 

However, he did confirm 
that France had made contact 
with “certain Arab states” 
over the Paris bombings, 
some of which had provided 
“some very valuable inform- 
ation”. He insisted that Syria 
had never asked for anything 
in exchange for its help. 

In particular, no new arms 
contracts were in the offing or 
were envisaged. 

The last contract, concluded 
by die Socialists in July 1984, 1 
had included the sale of anti- 
tank missiles. 

Measures had been taken to ! 
block that contract, and no 
arms had been delivered to 
Syria since March 1 6, the date 
that the right was returned to 
power. 

According to Le Monde, the 
Government had obtained 
Syria's help in imposing a 
truce on the terrorists in 
exchange for a promise of 
arms and money for Syria. 

It was dear yesterday that 
few people here believe the 
Government's repeated assur- 
ances that it never has, and 
never wilL enter into any form ! 
of negotiation, direct or in- 
direct, with the terrorists.

Tariffs start US-Canada trade war 


From John Best 
Ottawa 

A mini trade war has broken 
out between Canada and the 
United States, the world's two 
largest trading partners. 

A succession of new tariffs 
imposed by the US in the past 
several months have intim- 
ated many Canadian poli- 
ticians and acutely embarr- 
assed Mr Brian Mulroney, the 
Prime Minister, one of the 
most staunchly pro-American 


Canadian leaders since the 
war. 

The imposts are especially 
ironic as they came in the 
midst of negotiations between 
the US and fanaHa, aimwl at 
removing the remaining ter- 
riers to bilateral trade. 

Earlier this - week, he went 
on US television to warn 
Americans that they would 
pay dearly for a IS per cent 
duty imposed on Canadian 
softwood lumber by the 
Reagan Administration in 


mid-October. 

He used words like "per- 
nicious”, “vexatious” and 
“harmful” to describe the 
countervailing tariff which 
affects $Can4 billion (£2 bil- 
lion) worth of Canadian ex- 


He said that an ordinary 
American citizen would have 
to pay more to build a house 
because of the tariff. 

This sounded a little like a 
cry for mercy by the Conser- 
vative Prime Minister, who 


iwo years ago everyone was 
offered a chance to share in British 
Telecom^ future as a world leader in 
telecommunications 
Since then BTs continuing com- 
mitment to improving the scope and 
quality of its products/^^S^\ 
and services has ^ / 
ensured that its 

customers as well as its shareholders 
have profited. 

There is still much left to be done. 
The task of rebuilding Britain^ 
telecommunications network is a 
massive one and long overdue 

IMPROVED CUSTOMER SERVICES 
Over the last two years the mod- 
ernisation programme has been 
significantly speeded up and the 
equivalent of more than £5 million 
per day has been devoted to the 
reshaping of systems and services

coming into operation every day 
These new exchanges,alongwidi the 
optical fibre cables that are rapidly 
replacing die old networks, are 
dramatically improving the quality

basis of a technological revolution.

taking place, de- 
signed specifically

Yugoslavia acts to halt 
opposition drift to 
Western democracy 


As the Government un- 
packed a set of measures 
designed to control galloping 
inflation, which will exceed 
100 per cent this year, Yugo- 
slavia's political establish- 
ment stepped up a campaign 
against critical intellectuals 
and other opponents, accusing 
them of taking advantage of 
delays in reforms to offer a 
bourgeois type of democracy 
in plaice of socialism. 

The highest state authority, 
the eight-man presidency, to- 
gether with the presidium of 
the party, senior figures in Yu- 
goslavia's constituent repub- 
lics and trade unions, met to 
analyse Yugoslavia's troubles 
and to confront what is re- 
garded as an increasingly 
aggressive opposition which, 
in the view of the meeting, is 
already threatening the 
country's security. 

A statement called for a 
resolute confrontation with 
“anti -communist forces and 
ideologies" intent on de- 
stabilizing the country, and a 
“clear line of demarcation” 
between justified criticism in 
the search fora way out of the 
crisis and outright, right-wing 
opposition, a phrase which 
embraced recently flourishing 
nationalism in Serbia, Yugo- 
slavia's largest republic. 

The authorities accuse the 


opposition of blaming the 
party for all the country’s ills 
— which presumably indudes 
the party's own inability, be- 
cause of strong resistance at 
local and republic levels, to 
implement programmes ad- 
opted three years ago. 

A memorandum drafted by 
the Serbian Academy of Sci- 
ence and Arts and a petition 
by the Committee for the 
Defence of Freedom of Opin- 
ion were highlighted by the 
meeting as evidence that 
opponents were offering a 
bourgeois model of democ- 
racy and seeking Western- 
style free elections and a free 
press. 

The meeting fob that oppo- 
nents were attempting to 
spread mistrust and a view 
that the Communist Party was 
unable to overcome the cur- 
rent crisis. 

The federal establishment is 
worried that such a trend is 
also spreading within the 
party's own rank and file and 
that many leading party mem- 
bers in publishing institutions 
share such views. 

The Serbian academy, the 
oldest and most prestigious 
intellectual institution in the 
republic, has suggested that 
Serbs have not been treated on 
an equal basis with other 
nationalities in the present 


federal structure. Leading fig- 
ures in the Serbian party itself 
especially afer the rebellion in 
the Kosovo region in 1981, 
when the authorities appeared 
powerless to protect the Ser- 
bian population there, share 
this feeling. 

Five years after the Alba- 
nian riots in Kosovo the 
exodus of Serbs has been 
gaining momentum and, ac- 
cording to recent figures, 
about 2,000 Serbs have sold 
their homes and properties 
this year to find refuge in other 
parts of the country. 

Kosovo provokes strong 
nationalistic feelings among 
Serbs, and containment of 
that feeling becomes increas- 
ingly difficult without re- 
moval of the causes of Serbian 
dissatisfaction, especially in 
that region. 

The Serbian academy has 
responded to the political 
campaign by refusing to take 
part in its own centenary this 
year and postponing celebra- 
tions ontil next year. 

Its memorandum, which 
still has to be finalized and 
approved by the academics, 
accuses the party of inertia 
and says the crisis in 
Yugosalvia has readied such 
serious proportions that it 
could lead to nation's 
disintegration.

Palermo 
Mafia trial 
could end 
in disgrace 

From Peter Nichols 
Rome 

The mass trial of more than 
400 alleged Mafia criminals in 
Palermo resumed today after a 
day's break marked by efforts 
to save it from an ignsintiaioas

V.'.Vv* : 



The trial is taking far too 
long and some of the accused, 
inctading 20 men described as

to be released cm November S’ 
when they will have been held 
as long as the Law allows 
without a final verdict. 

Even worse, as far as the 
impression it will make on 
public opinion, defence law- 
yers seem determined to insist 
on having read oat in court all 
the documentation concerning 
pre-trial investigations and 
fresh evidence arising daring 
the hearing. 

As this runs to abort 
800,000 pages and would take 
several years to read, an 
acceptance of the request by 
the coart would mean that 
none of the accused would atfll 
be in custody when the verdicts 
finally emerge.

Rival halts Sri Lanka rebel action 


Colombo (Reuter) — One of 
Sri Lanka’s Tamil rebel 
groups says attacks by a rival 
organization have forced it to 
suspend all military activities 
against the central Govern- 
ment in the island’s north. 

The People's Liberation Or- 
ganization of Tamil Eelam 
said that it was suspending its 


operations .after some of its 
men were assaulted on Tues- 
day and their arms removed 
by the rival libe ration Tigers 
of Tamil Eelam (LTTE). 

“We understand the Tigers 
are planning to eradicate our 
organization and in order to 
prevent another bloodbath, 
we are suspending all ac- 


tivity,'’ it said in the rebel- 
controlled Jaffna city. 

The LTTE move appeared 
to be part of its attempt to 
override the other guerrilla 
groups in the area before its 
planned declaration of an 
independent state in January 
next year.

^Tbe^Rr^ Jobn McKnight

ft/Mi- Mordecfmi Vamum in 
Israel. Mr Vanunu dxs- 

SEuASSM 

had exposed his country®

Mr McKnight said he be- 
lieved that Mr Vanunu had 
been abducted by agents of 
IsraeTs intellegence service; 
Mossad, from London and 
tairt-n to Israel against bis wtiL 
He thought the Israeli was 
being held at the high security 
prison at Gadera. 

The priest said he became 
worried when he received a 
phone cad from Mr Vanunu, 
who said he feared Mossad 
might try to apprehend him 
for.tefling The Sunday Times, 
among other things, that Israel 
had stockpiled between 100 
and 200 nuclear weapons. 

He predicted that Mr 
Vanunu woold be tried in 
secret. 

• JERUSALEM: Mr 

McKnight may have failed to 
find Mr Vanunu, but he 
succeeded in stirring a public 
d eb ate on the issue here. Not 
much of it is very flattering to 
Mr McKnight (Ian Murray 
writes). 

The weekly paper Roteret 
Rashit, called Mr McKnight’s 
visit a farce, but said that, as 
far as Mr Vanunu is con- 
cerned, the official denial that 
he is here will be very difficult 
to retract. “If Vanunu is in 
Israd he has reason to worry.”

YOUR OWN BUSINESS 


Brewing up 
a venture 




with taste 


By Brian Collett 

Many a good beer has flowed in with the 
real ale boom. The movement has 
spawned new brews, new breweries and 
new brewers - and at Wiveliscombe, 
west Somerset, you will Cod all three. 

Tim Gilmoor- White set up the Golden 
Hill Brewery there six years ago. This 
month he celebrated his l.OOtth brew 
and introduced a new ale. 


The Golden Hill business has grown 
steadily since 1980 but Mr-Gilmour 
White emphasizes: *Tm a small-is- 
beautrful man. I wouldn't want the 
brewery to get so big that it ceases to be a 
family concern.” 

Mr Gilmour- White is also a man of 
many professions. He is a civil engineer, 
but he was farming in the north of 
Scotland when he decided, at the age of 
56, to switch to the less strenuous 
business of brewing. 

He identified a demand for real ate in 
west Somerset, bought a site which was. 
appropriately, part of a brewery vacated 
21 years before, and started producing 
Exmoor Ale. 



His first equipment was “all old stuffy 
almost tied together with string”, but he 
gradually replaced this with apparatus to 
his own specifications. 

Exmoor Ale went out initialfy to just 
eight pubs in and around Wiveuscombe 


but within a few months it had won the 
1980 Best Bitter of the Year award from 
the Campaign for Real Ale. 

CAMRA still rates Golden Hill as one 
of Britain's top 10 independent brew- 
eries and it now supplies about 100 pubs 
from Cornwall to Kent and Sussex. 
Other pubs take Exmoor Ale as a guest 
brew from time to time. 

Mr Gilmour- White dings to his fami ly 
business ethic. “The workforce and 
myself are like a family,” he explains. 

There are no demarcation lines in the 
work at Golden Hill The men who brew 
also sweep the factory floor and are 


Britain’s best small firms 


Two small firms this week shared the 
title of most efficient small business in 
Britain. They are Blnemay, ran by 
husband and wife Bob and Val Butcher, 
of Devizes, Wiltshire, and Donnrint 
Label Systems, of East Kilbride, whose 
managing director is Desmond 
Dononoe. 

They beat 300 others in the National 
Small Business Efficiency Awards spon- 
sored by British Telecom and operated 
jointly with the Association of British 
Chambers of Commerce with cash and 
other prizes worth more than £20,000. 


The Butchers make thennoplastio- 
threaded fasteners and custom 
mouldings, export to the Pacific Rim and 
nohh America and increased their 
turnover last year by 10 per cent. 

Donprinl, which makes customized 
identification labds, is shortly moving to 
a lugger factory. Mr Donoboe attributes 
success to bis employees' dedication. 

Third place went to Kirton Designs lof 
Norwich which makes specialist sealing 
fin- the elderly and mentally handi- 
capped. A commendation was earned by 
Survival Aids of Cumbria. 


sometimes even called on to drive the 
delivery trades. , . 

“They all fed they have a stake in the 

brewery” says Mr Gilmour-Whrte. hr 

larger concern a drayman loading ure 
hamptc on to the truck might as well be 
carrying blocks of stone. Here we even 
have a profit-sharing scheme.” 

Expansion is not contrary to his soau 

is beautiniT philosophy, but he insists 
that the increasing demand Tor real ale 
must not kill wfaai be has built up at 
Golden HIIL 

However, daring the past 10 years 
about 40 of the 140 newly started mim- 
breweries have gone broke. MrGftmour- 
White sees the warning: “You can t he 
the idealist tndnig iu g m his hobby. Some 
of these small brewers did not do their 
marketing or their book-kee p i n g. 1 have 
been a realist and Golden Hill has made 
a profit. 

“Another important ingredient in any 
anal! business is people, and I have 


exflfTterct people.” 

Golden Hill launched its second beer, 
the slightly more bitter Exmoor Dark, on 
October 14, coinciding with its l.OOOlb 
brew of Exmoor Ate — that's six miltiqp 
pints in six years.

Sir Joh’s own stubborn 
streak could end his 
long Queensland reign 


One constant theme that 
ft^sresoundcd throughout the 
acerbic campaign wSdi c nl* 
mi nates in tomorrow's 
^*ensland election is that it 
?*“ end die career of 
Aus^ha's most successful 
and durable politician. 

Ironically, however, if Sir 
Johannes BjeUce-Praersen is 
in deed f orced to stand' down 
as Premier, it wiD be because 
o f the same dogged refusal to 
compromise that has kept him 
on top for 18 years. 

At stake tomorrow is con- 
trol of the most resomce- 
Dlessed. of all Australia's 
states, which is now ex- 
periencing high . unemploy- 
ment and inflation. 

The substance of the

opposition parties. Labor and 
liberal, is that the benefits of 
growth have been mioiwi 
The Liberals, also conser- 
.vatives, who' Stored power

■power in Ids own tight, in 
1983 and abandoned their 
coalition, political cronyism 
has become ram pant 
Labor has pressed even 
harder on the corruption is- 
sue, and campaigned addit- 
ionally on the Government's 
questionable social services 
andjob-creation records. 

The allegations have been 
coming thick and fast. Charac- 
teristic of the cronyism claim c 
was the disclosure this week 
that the Government lad 


From Stephen Taylor, Brisbane 
reversed a local council de- 
cision to prevent a large real 
estate development by a Na- * 
tiornai Party offidaL 

Charges Kke these — and 
there have been a number — 
have produced a spate of libel 
writs, but some of the mud has 
stuck 

Clean government and Sir 
Job's age (be is 75) have been 
the key issues of the campaign. 
The consequence is that no 
one party looks Hkdy to win 
an overall majority, although 
the Nationals acid liberals 
would be able to rule if they 
could renew their coalition. 

The stumbling block is Sir 
Joh himself It is his obstinate 
refusal to countenance a co- 
alition that contains the seeds 
of his demise. 

It was Sr Joh’s decision in 
1 983 to go it alone. Through a 
blatant gerrymander of elec- 
toral boundaries the Nationals ' 
then gained 43 ont of the 82 
parliamentary, seats with just 
38.9 per cent of the popular 
vote. 

The gaiymaader was even 
more deeply entrenched by a 
redistribution a year ago 
which would enable the Na- 
tionals to hold cm to power 
with only 36 per cent of the. 
vote. 

Despite indications of a 
disastrous slippage of support, 
Sir Joh has continued to insist 
that he can govern alone. He 
has spumed an offer of a new 
coalition, extended during the 
campaign by Sir tomb 
K noxTue liberal leader.

Supreme Court here yesterday 
that one ofitsfonner spies was 
bound by contract not to 
publish a book about his secret 
work. 

Mr Theo Sim os, the lawyer 
representing the British Attor- 
ney-General, said Mr Peter 
Wright, the former senior MI 5 
agent, could not break the 
contract even if the material in- 
Jus book was already in the 
public domain. 

, Sir Michael Havers^ the. 
British Attorney-General, is 
seeking an injunction against 
Hememann Australia, .the. 
publishers, and Mr Wright, 
who lives in Tasmania, to stop 
publication of the book. 

Sir Michael in- earlier hear- 
ings had said the book con- 
tained evidence of treason and 
other crimes by members of 
the British secret service. 

Mr Malcolm Turnbull Mr 


Wright’s lawyer, told the court 
yesterday that the action of die 
British Government was de- 
signed to prevem other retired 

spies from writing their 
memoirs. 

The British Government, 
had “dragged its feet at every 
single turn”, Mr Turnbull 
said. 

“It is no longex suggested 
that there is anything sensitive 
in the book. This action is 
. designed to prevent other 
retired spdaks from writing! 
thdr memoirs.” he said. - 

Mr Tufribufl said Austra- 
lian public interest should be 
.the oeterminxiig factor in the 
case. . 

“I mean we are not living in 
Albania," he said. ! 

Mr Wright, aped. 70, has 
lived iaTasmania since retir- 
mg from MIS in 1976. 

The court adjourned the 
hearing to a date to be fixed

draft electoral reform Bin, 
which would end the geny- 
mander, and said he would 
introduce it in the new par-

has most to gain from reform, 
has indirai t *d Ins sunnort. 

A hung Parliament woukZ.

ponsibility on Sir Walter 
GBmbbell who, as Governor, 
is die Queen’s representative

Local analysts believe that if 
Sir Joh gets a fairly strong 
r e presentation — perhaps 42 
or so in the expanded 89-seat 
Parliament — the Governor 
would summon h hn , »»d if 
the Premier said he could rule 
with a minority, he would be 
invited . to test this in 

Parliament. 

Bat if the poQs are coned, 
and the Nationals are. left with 
a dear minority, the Bgdko- 
Fetersen era is at an end. 

TWo of the Premier’s col- 
leagues, Mr Russ Hmze, a 
colourful and corpulent figure 
who has been the target of a 
number of damaging allega- 
tions, and Mr Michael Ahem, 
a young reformer, have both 
indicated a willmgness to deal 
with tire Liberals. 

Faced with a choice be- 
tween dumping Sir Joh and 
political oblivion, there is 
little doubt that most Na- 
tionals would advise the Pre- 
mier that it was time to go 
back to the form at Kingaroy 
in the Queensland bush where 
he has lived since childhood- 

Singer is 
jailed on 
gun charge 

From A Correspondent 
Nairobi 

An ex-soldier of the Kenya 
Aimy, HajulasHyapaxyi Kab- 
assdeh, now a popular singer 
in Nairobi, has been jailed for 
18 months .for failing to 
prevent publication of a se- 
ditious document, “Mwa- 
kenya" and to an additional 
three years for possessing an 
unlicensed sub-machine-gun 
and 68 rounds of 7.62 mm 
ammunition. 

' Mr Bernard Chunga, pros- 
ecuting, said the accused had 
been given the gun and 
.ammunition by a Kenya Air 
Force member soon after the 
1982 coup attempt 

A relative found a buyer 
and the accused was told the 
gun was needed by the 
clandestine Mwakenya org- 
anization to raise money in a 
series of robberies,

The Soviet family in crisis 

Divorce rate reaches 50% 


From Christopher Walker, Moscow 


A startling picture of domes- 
tic disharmony in the Soviet 
Union is painted hi the official 
youth paper, Moskovskii 

speriaHraw^ table ofSoriet 
specialist! to explain new 
statistics showing Oat nearly 
SO per cent of all marriages in 
the Soviet capital now mid in 
di vorce. 

TTie article, the latest exam- 
ple of the new openness being 
shown by the official media on 
social problems that were 
formerly said not to exist, cited 

the main reasons “why every 
second family is doomed to 
perish” as drinkimL poor 
boosing, sexual difficulties 
and lack of tradition hi modern 
communist society. 

“Half of all people wanting 
a divorce cite the drunkenness 
of one of the spouses — not 
on|y his d iking, hot her 
tbinkuig as weH And tmfortn- 
Rately this statistic remains 
static”, captained. Ms L. 
Mikhailova, a- female judge, 
who was referring to the lack 
of effect mi the soaring divorce 
rate of Mr MDdnul Gorb- 
achov's 15-month oM crack- 
down so akoboL 

The judge also put forward 
Moscow 9 * chronic housing 


nnblfins as an o t W factor 
contributing to the break-up of 
so many Soviet ftwnflW 
“Some couples have nowhere 
to live together. Officially, 
neither of mem is in need of 
improved housing conditions 
(because both sets of parents 
have enough firing space for 
their one child),” the judge 
said. 

“But it is impossible to five 
together with his parents or 
her parents. Having listened 
to the reproaches of their 
relatives, haring collided with 
em * other in some rented 
comer, having knocked on 
every door, the young people 
can stand it no longer: another 
divorce.” 

The judge also described the 
depressing problems feeing 
many of Moscow’s neiriy- 
divorced coagries when they try 
after the marriage is over to 
swap their flat for two smaller 
ones, or for rooms hi one of the 
city's overcrowded communal 
feds. “I do not think that I 
need to explain to anyone what 
living together after a divorce 
is Hke,” tis judge dded. 

Mr & Agarkov, a Moscow 
sexologist, told readers of the 
popular daily that 40 per cent

WE’VE MADE THE 
LISTENING EASIER 


We always like to keep our ears open for any commerris 
you like to make on improving our services. Now 
we*ve made listening to you even easier, 

We've introduced new equipment and telephone 
numbers into our main offices in London and Sheffield, 
which will enable us to deal more efficiently with your 
telephone enquiries and will allow you to dial directly

From Monday 3 November the new numbers are as

sexual problems. Many Soviet 
couples, he added, were un- 
aware that a woman's sexual 
appetite grew stronger towards 
the age of 40, white feat of a 
man was fading away. 

“Every third ma rriage and 
90 per cent of young marriages 
are characterized by sexual 
disharmony ,” fee specialist 
coodnded. “One can sulk, 
bear a grudge or practice 
deceit in the lritdwn, but time 
is no room for any pretence or 
lies in bed.” 

A psychotherapist. Dr Star* 
shenhuan, claimed that a 
growing number of Soviet 
marriages were short-lived be- 
cause “traditions have 
changed, parental authority 
collapsed~there is no fear 
before God or before people. In 
other words, fee external 
mechanism for keeping fam- 
ilies together has weakened.” 

Mr A. Maximov, a reader, 
pointed out that many di- 
vorced Soviet wives experi- 
enced great difficulty in 
getting alimony from their 
former husbands, partly as a 
result of a law that husbands 
must pay at least one quarter 
of their official salary, without 
reference to other sources of 
income.

“Most of this stuff is ungodly

““»■ Peters in the middle of 
The Business of Excellence 
(Thames). Mr Peters had 
cvayjhing going for Kim to 
“rake his words ring tree. For 

a star t, he was giving a 40 - 
nunote aninterrupted tectare 

which was replayed tons at the 
wponfic time of 11 30 p-m. 
Secondly, it was on the subject 
of the or ganiz a tio n of Ameri-

normally does much for os folk 
who like to snuggle down at 
this hour to the sound of cne on 
boils or simply snaggle 
down in the case of much other 
late-night entertainment. 

However, though Tom 
Peters’s lecture was perhaps 
ungodly in that it was more 
about our makers our 
Maker, boring it certainly was 
not. Indeed, it was one of the 
most extraordinary rents I 
have ever heard on television 
— loud enough to make a bible- 
bel ter buckle. 


TELEVISION 


What was most extraor- 
dinary about it was that his 
message was delivered — ami 
apparently received — as 
though it was as controversial 
as veganism among cannibals 


when to the economically ig- 
norant like myself it appeared 
common sense: the public want 
products that work, vast com- 
panies are inefficient and stifle 
invention, people are more 
important than machines and 
should speak to each other, 
and business management 
“scientists” do not know what

knew exactly what he did not 
know he was talking about and 
kept apologizing, no doubt for 
the benefit of us ignoramuses, 
for earning so much money for 
stating the obvious.

oris Dome’s Men is the 
most successful German 
film in box-office terms 
since the war — an 
achievement that must be 
attributed to its feat in exploiting a 
style almost unprecedented in Ger- 
man cinema, the light sitnation 
comedy. Dome obeys the key rule of 
the game, which is to take a single, 
strong comic idea, and pursue it 
simply and conscientiously. 

The idea has the manner of a classic 
comedy plot. A husband, who is 
perfectly content with his own double 
standards of marital fidelity, is out- 
raged to find his wife has a lover. He 
hits on the somewhat masochistic 
notion of moving in as the unsuspect- 
ing lover’s flat-mate, intent on 
discovering what superior attractions 
the man possesses. The answer is that 
while the husband is a neat, dean, 
yuppie advertising executive his rival 
is a Bohemian, drop-out and slob. 
The husband devises a terrible re- 
venge, setting out to pervert the 
unhappy man to the ways of deanli- 
ness, ambition and the success ethic. 

Dome is light on incidental com- 
edy business (though there is a nice 
scene when the husband disguises 
himself as King Kong when his wife 
comes to call) but compensates with 
the dexterity of the performances — 
Helmer Lauterbach as the husband, 
the glowering Uwe Ochsenlmecht as 
the rival and Ulrike Kriemer as the 
spirited wife. The film’s admirers 
overstate the case when they compare 
Men to Wilder and Lubitsch; but it is 
still pretty good Doris Dome. 

Strange indeed is the world of 
SJL Hinton, whose novels of tor- 
tured adolescence have been adapted 
to the screen in Tex; The Outsiders, 





Dextrous rivals: Helmer Lauterbach (left) and Uwe Ochsenlmecht in Men 


Rumblefish and now That Was 
Then . . . This Is Now. It is a surreal 
world peopled mainly by kids, with 
grown-ups making only fleeting and 
rarely welcome intrusions. Life is 
lived on the city streets, and mean 
they are in look and spirit. Violence 
and sudden death are facts of life. 
Delinquency is inescapable. Gang 
enemies are rife. Friendships though 
are as passionate as rage: love is a 
powerful and declared bond between 
the boys. Ms Hinton is no feminist; 
the women in her stories are passive 
and protected. Sentiment is strong 
and the atmosphere is pervaded by a 
melancholy, romantic regret for the 
passing of an illusory youthful happi- 
ness — which is the significance of the 
title of That Was Then . . . This is 
Now. 

The script is adapted, serviceably 
gnnugh, by Emilio Estevez, the tough, 
diminutive son of Martin Sheen. 
Estevez also plays the leading role of 
Mark, a disturbed and angry boy who 
has grown up since fin the way of 
things in Hinton novels) his dad shot 
his mother, in the fatherless home of 
his best friend Rryon (Craig Sbefier). 
When Bryon gets serious with a 
. girlfriend, Mark's jealousy and sense . 
of rejection lead him to reckless acts 
that endanger their lives and friend- 
ship. It is all very stem and artificial, 
but Estevez, who glares like an infant

is enjoying a renaissance, directing

ronson is a veteran cop with 
domestic and drink prob- 
lems (Gail Morgan Hick- 
man's script cheerily adopts 
all the cliches of the genre) 
who finds himself framed for murder, 
and makes his escape shackled to a 
foul-mouthed delinquent punk 
(Kathleen Wflhoite). Together they 
run down the real mass-murderer 
who turns out (as the film’s novel 
touch) to be a crazy lady (Carrie 
Snodgrass) who is always getting her 
face spattered with the blood of 
victims shot at dose range. 

It is not elegant, but Thompson still 
has the ability to keep the action, 
however unlikely, moving briskly. 
Bronson. Jbis geologically -textured, 
face ever more tightly fixed in its 
single expression, is one of the most 
eccentric star figures of recent times. 

The best bargain for London 


dnemagoers is still the series of Made 
in London shows presented by the 
MuseUm of London in collaboration 
with the National Film Archive and 
; with the sponsorship of Nomura 
International. They arc every Tues- 
day and Thursday at 6.10 in the 
museum, and tickets cost a derisory 
£1.20. The programmes regularly 
include rarities and little-known films 
alongside the more familiar classics of 
British cinema. 

The films often seem specially 
apposite complements to the mus- 
eum’s more conventional exhibits, 
with much forgotten detail of the way 
we used to five. Love on Wheels 
(November 1 1 ), for example, has Jack 
Hulbert On a 1932 Green Line bus 
tour, and a chase through Selfridges. 
In Gen and Daisy’s Weekend 
(November 18) there is a mass of 
curious sidelights on wartime living, 
as Elsie and Doris Warns, unusually 
cast as rural matrons, deal with 
evacuees. Tom Walls’s A Cup of 
Kindness (November 25) and Carol 
Reed's adaptation of J.B. Priestley’s 
Laburnum Grove (November 27) give 
a glimpse of life on the new com- 
muter-belt housing estates of the 
Thirties. 

Made in London is now in it sixth 
yean and the 300th show next 
Thursday will be a surprise screening 
of a major British film newly restored 
by the National Him Archive. 
Tuesday's show is no secret however 
it is Jack Raymond's The Frog, a 
1937 Edgar Wallace thriller, with 
Gordon Harker and a young Jack 
Hawkins. 

The programme on December 4 is 
Michael Powell and Em eric Press- 
burger’s adaptation of Mary Webb’s 
Gone to Earth, which meanwhile has 
a limited run at the Electric. The print 
of the film has just been restored by 
the National Him Archive, in recog- 
nition of the current vogue for Powell 
and Pressburger. Visually it is cer- 
tainly remarkable. The Shropshire 
countryside, marvellously captured 
by Christopher Challis's dnepbo- 
tograpby, is used like a spectacular 
stage which comes most strikingly 
into its own in the crazed finale. 

At other levels though the film is 
still as ludicrous as it seemed in J 950. 
It was never possible to read Mary 
Webb straight-faced after Stella 
Gibbons’s hatchet-job m Cold Com- 
fort Farm. Gone to Earth has more the 
quality of Gibbons than Webb, with 
its tale of the country lass caught 
between the wicked squire and the 
mother’s-boy priest; Stephen Murray 
snarling and glowering at an ancient 
retainer; and a wild variety of 
Mummerset accents, inducting Jen- 
nifer Jones’s Californian variation. 
Small wonder that her husband and 
producer David Selznick was so 
dismayed by the film that be prac- 
"tically remade it with the aid of 
Rouben Mamoulian. 


David Robinson 


Consistently fluent charm 


One pleasing feature of the 
Britten-Tippett Festival is that 
its programmes have made no 
attempt at charting chrono- 
logical progress. Thus, as in 
the London Sinfonieua’s last 
concert of the series, absorb- 
ing comparisons have been 
made between works by both 
composers from different 
times. 


CONCERT 


LS/Rattle 
Elizabeth Hall/

In this instance we heard 
three pieces by Britten, one 
each from the Twenties, the 
Forties and the Sixties. All of 
them contained the common 


threads of fluency and, even at 
tiie darkest, most intense mo- 
ments of the Cello Symphony, 
an associated beguiling, natu- 
ral charm. 

Those qualities appear even

1 928, settings of poets — Hugo 
and Verlaine — as contrasting 
as the 14-year-old composer's 
responses. The models are 
blatant, but already there is 
much that is recognizably 
Britten. And certainly he 
malms no apology for any- 
thing, derivative or original 

Moreover, it is easy to 
forgive the odd obvious touch, 
like the chiming piano in 
fSagesse” or the overblown 
pathos in “L’Enfance”. Every- 
thing is so ingenuously done, 
and it was with a certain wide- 
eyed innocence that JiO Go- 
mez, the sploist, seduced one’s 
sensibilities here. 

There is little innocence, 
however, in the predomi- 
nantly dark Cello Symphony 
of 19o3, for all the freedom of 
its language. AO kinds of 
influences have been thor- 
oughly absorbed by now, and 
the result, despite a finale that 
seems to me curiously dilute 
in effect, is as much a tribute 
to Shostakovich as to its 
dedicatee, Mstislav Rostro- 
povich. Christopher van

To fill the gap between the 
ages, there was The Young 
Person's Guide to the Or- 
chestra of 1946, still didactic 
music of the best kind, 
spectacular yet with its own 
profundity. Here the Sin- 
fonietta and Simon Rattle 
were able to revel openly in 
their own virtuosity, which 
had been plain all evening. 

Tippett’s Dionysiac Ritual 
Dances ( 1 947-52), meanwhile, 
were given a quite glorious 
performance with which even 
Rattle seemed particularly 
pleased. And the Corelli Vari- 
ations (1953) began the eve- 
ning in an opulent wash of 
string sound, the texture 
crowned by the solo violins of 
Nona Liddell and Joan 
Atherton. 


Stephen Pettitt 


bn Judge's new English Na- 
tional Opera production of 
Car and i^gis most briliiaiitiy 
effective in rendering the mid- 
dle part of the doable bilk I 
mean the ‘‘and”. Indeed, there 
is a vast amount of “and”, 
holding out its hands in each 
direction to link up with not 
very mneh. 

The strolling players for 
Leoncavallo’s opera arrive 
during the overture to Mas- 
cagni's, and strojQ, this being 
their wont, back to rehearse in 
dumb-show daring the inter- 
mezzo. Thus two rather boring 
orchestral bits are neatly filled 
with action. Then of coarse the 
principals from CavaHeria 
mstiama, or at least those of 
them who survive, can return 
as prime members of the 
audience for the internal play 
in PagliaccL 

This spoils the evening for 
Santazza, who can normally 
get away in decent time for 
dinner, and it freqnires the 
main characters for PttgUacci 
to be on stage from nearty two 
hours before they open their 
months, but it does have the 
economical advantage that the 
same sets can be ased for both 
operas. It also allows the 
director to interpolate his own 
dramatic ironies, which he 
does all the more successfully 
by ignoring or overturning 
those that are present in the 
works. 

For sorely the prologue to 
Pog&acd is the key to both 
operas, asking ns to consider 
how it can he that flamboyant 
operatic behaviour should 
work so directly on the mo- 
tions. Of coarse it is HnKkdy 
that Mascagni ever asked 
himself that question, at least 
in CavaUeria nuticana , bat 
Leoncavallo asks ft for him, 
while working In his own opera 
mach more knowingly between 
what is flagrantly artificial 
and what can seem sponta- 
neous. This production, how. 
ever, helps neither opera by 
heavy-handedly pointing np 
the artificiality all through, 
running foe gamut of alien- 
ation effects from sadden 
changes, of lighting to ostenta-

tiously formal gr o upi n gs to 
banners dropped from the 
flies. 

Nobody needs reminding 
that things like Alfio’s song 
and the Easter Hymn are 
conventional set-pieces; what 
is interesting is bow their 
square-cat foreignness can 
ever seem to us subsumed 
within a straightforward piece 
of story-telling. With disbelief 
rudely unsuspended about ev- 
ery ninety seamds, CavaUeria 
nuticana becomes a bit dismal 
to behold. 

PagRacd has more going for 
ft, but still foe production 
deals hammer-blows to its 
sophistication. The prologue is 
not delivered directly to the 
audience; instead Tooio makes 
it his speech to die schools’ 
drama workshop. No matter 
that this requires some sleight 
of hand In Edmund Tracey's 
translation: It serves the pur- 
pose of allowing the producer 
to interrupt the dramatic con- 
tinuity where he pleases, and 
not where the work would 
seem to be asking. 

Since foe orchestra is 
heavily managed by Jacques 
Ddacdte in both operas, the 
only pleasures of the evening 
are in the design and in some 
of the singing. Gerard How- 
land’s topphng set, fnter- 
pretable as town or theatre, 
could be the container for a 
much more intelligent produc- 
tion, and Deirdre Oancy’s 
costumes are in the thor- 
oughly-researched tradition of 
BBC serials (I suppose we are 
circa 19 10 , though a scrap of 
dancing from Nedda and 
Peppe, to Mascagni, 
a date in the 1920s). 

The CavaUeria cast is domi- 
nated by a firmly projected but 
somewhat uniformly shrill- 
timed Santnzza from Jane 
Eagteu. Edmund Barham 
sounds a bit compressed as 
Tnriddn, and Malcolm Rivas 
offers a workaday Alfio, whom 
this production has .as. the 
local gangster boss. Fiona 
Kimm makes one wish that 
Lola’s part were for larger, so 
splendidly does she act, sing 
and move as his molL In 
PagUacd Helen Field is a fine, 
nervy, headstrong Nedda, a 
shade light of voice for this 
role. Rowland Sid well is 
Englishly lyrical as Curio, and 
Nicholas Fotwefl gets much 
out of foe lower reaches of 
Tonio's part. Only Bona- 
ventura Bottone as Peppe 
sounds perfectly at home

favour with the regime. To- 
night he has two guests: an 
American (Adrian) fascinated 
by Eastern Europe and 
Sigmund, a dissident genius 
whose latest work has just 
been seized by the authorities. 

The meeting takes place 
under an ornate baroque ceil- 
ing. A symbol of the imperial 
past and of the all-seeing eye 
of God, it is also probably 
bugged. And the writers who 
assemble there, all watching 
each other, are producing 
books involving their shared 
mistress — Maya — who is 
suspected of organizing orgies 
for the betrayal of foreign 
intelligentsia. Everyone, in 
short, is spying on everyone 
else. 


Miller proceeds to sharpen 
the contradictions and alle- 
be tween them by 


ices 


giant 

focusing on their separate 


attitudes towards the act of 
confiscation. The defiant Sig- 
mund is prepared for gaol 
rather than silent exile. Adrian 
is all for turning the case into 
an international human-rights 
scandal. Marcus, with mem- 
ories of the Stalinist dark ages. 


is for compromise and artistic 
self-sacrifice. 

It is a dialogue between an 
American innocent and two 
generations of East European 
experience. What makes it 
theatrically electrifying is the 
self-censorship imposed on 
the speakers by the possibility 
of hidden microphones. This 
has the effect of converting the 
main dialogue into an urgent 
sub-text. 

When ! saw the play in 
Bristol last year, I thought fiat 
the life began draining out of it 
when the company start 
conversing without fear of 
eavesdroppers. At the Pit. I sat 
through the first half of Nick 
Hamm's production intend- 
ing to eat my words. A 
marvellously complex at- 
mosphere develops, com- 
bining danger, sexual tension, 
hospitality and the sense of 
ambiguous friendship be- 
tween people who know very 
little about each other. 

.Anyone who has visited foe 
East will verily' the truth of 
this picture: and the produc- 
tion projects it with great 
agility, switching from explo- 
sions of terrified anger to 
broad comedy, as where 
Adrian i Roger AUam) starts 
delivering glowing testimo- 
nials to the country 1 fo f the 
benefit of the unseen listeners. 
Jane Lapotaire dominates 
these scenes as a vigilant 
hostess, full of banter and 
sensual fun but freezing into 
reserved generalities when any 
dangerous topic crops up, and 
matching gentle speech with 
savage physical gestures. 

This vitality, alas, does not 
survive into the second act. 
David dc Keyset's Marcus 
and John Shrapnel's Sigmund 
retain their conviction as de- 
tailed studies of political ad- 
versaries; but, once all the 
figures start engaging in open 
dispute, foe piece descends 
into American tribunal drama 
with every' character coming 
on as a moral pugilist who 
always has one more thing to 
say, none of it conclusive. 

As at Bristol, the play has 
prompted a magnificent set: 
this time from Fotini Dimou. 


Antigone 

Duke of Cambridge 


Anouilh’s purpose in revamp- 
ing Sophocles in 1942 was to 
offer his wartime audience an 
icon of resistance to tyranny. 
Despite the hopelessness of 
his heroine's cause, it still 
seems remarkable that the 
occupying Germans permitted 
a production at all; perhaps 
they took his portrait of them 
as a compliment. 

Directed by Malcolm Sher- 
man, The Company have had 
the right instinct in keeping 
more or less in period. A 
torch-singer introduces the 
first half with “Stormy 
Weather”, a saxophone the 
second with “Cry Me a 
River”; the Chorus (Tony 
Marshall), in spats and a white 
linen jacket, is at one point 
discovered sniffing some- 
thing; the Nurse has an Edgar 
Wallace to hand; a comer of 
foe Lrshaped room is pasted 
with old French newspapers. 

Lewis Galaatiere's transla- 
tion — here shorn of a couple 
of Guards, and with the 
Messenger and Page conflated 
into a Singer — is similarly 


period, a kind of Third Pro- 
gramme demotic which 
strains to render every-day 
speech but will keep lapsing 
into grammar. And when 
Creon, with a bottle of Fttou at 
his elbow, declares that “it's 
not all beer and skittles” one 
can only suggest that the 
standard script needs a thor- 
ough overhauL 
The crux of the piece is 
Croon's lengthy interview 
with Antigone in which he 
urges her to desist from her 
token attempts to bury her 
dead brother Polynices — an 
act punishable by death. 
Adam Kimmel's initially 
mild-mannered gangster con- 
veys the banality of evil with a 
judicious blend of hectoring 
and patronizing, but finds thin 
support in Anne Harris’s fer- 
vent but off-centre Antigone. 
Miss Harris tends to rabble 
her lines, as does David 
Finch’s spiwy Guard. Admit- 
tedly, they live to contend 
with the filthiest acoustic in 


fringe theatre, but something 
be done if 


will really have to 
this largely agreeable produc- 
tion is to be comprehensible.

THE 


MES FRIDAY OCTOBER 31 1986 

SPECTRUM 


Screen gems lost in the ether 


Tomorrow night the 
BBC begins its 
celebration of 50 years 
of television with 
some popular repeats. 
But many much-loved 
classic programmes 
have gone forever, 
Peter Waymark 
finds out why 

I n the beginning, and for many 
years afterwards, the 
preoccupation in television 
was making programmes and 
getting them on the air. Little 
thought w3S given to preserving 
them for future generations. 

A few programmes were made on 
film, and film can be stored. But the 
majority went out five and the only 
way to record them was to point a 
camera at the screen while the 
programme was being transmitted. It 
was a crude method, which produced 
fuzzy results, and, not surprisingly, it 
was sparingly used. 

Of the pre-war period, almost the 
only record comprises filmed snip- 
pets produced by the BBC for 
promotional purposes. The immedi- 
ate post-war years are little better 
covered, unless the programmes 
happened to be on film. 

This has produced some curious 
anomalies. From current affairs 
programmes like Panorama, filmed 
reports have survived but not the 
live studio context. Not one com- 
plete Panorama remains from the 
1950s. A key event in the history of 
television was the -start of ITV. But 
little remains of the programmes . 
transmitted on the opening night in 
September 1955. It is a startling fact 
that the first decades of the cinema 
are much better documented than 
the embryo years of television. 

Talking of Panorama, in April 
19S8 the programme was opened as 
usual by Richard Dimbleby. After a 
couple of minutes he stopped talk- 
ing. pressed a button and viewers 
were astonished to see his introduc- 
tion ail over again. It was British 
television’s first action replay, made 
possible by a new invention, 
videotape. 

Here was the answer to the 1 
preservationist's prayer. No longer 
would programmes be lost because 
there was no effective way of 
recording them. That was the theory. 
The reality was to be tragically 
different because tape could not 
only record, but could be wiped and 
used again. It was also expensive, so. 
in many cases, that was what 
happened. Paradoxically, the arrival 
of tape coincides with the most 
telling examples of television’s cul- 
tural vandalism. 

The biggest and most important 
gaps are in drama. Think of produc- 
tions that have become as much a 
part of television history as the great 
spaghetti hoax. Alun Owen's No 
Trams to Lime Street and After the 
Funeral. Harold Pinter's Night 
School and The Collection. David 
Mercer’s A Suitable Case For Treat- 
ment (which was filmed as Morgan, 
but was a television play first). None 
of these survives and nor do early 
plays by Peter Nichols and John 
Mortimer. Moving through the 



y screened, why bother to keep

VO 









Dramatic oversights: David Mercer's play A Suitable Case for Treatment (left) and David and Broccoli by John 
Mortimer are only two of several memorable television productions which were never recorded for posterity 


1960s and into the early ‘70s the list 
of lost works includes plays by David 
Rudkin. Dennis Potter, Tom 
Stoppard, Simon Gray. Michael 
Frayn and Adrian Mitchell. 

Drama was not the only area to 
suffer. In 1959 the documentary 
producer, Peter Motley, made Tyr- 
anny — the Years of Adolf Hiller, the 
programme included interviews with 
Hitler's sister, pilot, chauffeur and 
adjutant. All this material, of enor- 
mous historical value, has been lost 
Light entertainment has also gone 
down the sink in huge quantities — 
for example the first television 
appearances of Les Dawson, Paul 
Daniels and Lena Zavaroni, all on 
Opportunity Knocks. 

Against this grisly catalogue must 
be mentioned some of the landmark 
programmes that have been pre- 
served : the two most famous BBC 
dramas of the 1950s. The 


Qualermass Experiment (and its 
sequels) and 1984 , Ken Russell's 
Elgar and the most famous single 
television play. Cathy Come Home. 

G ranada has all 2,669 epi- 
sodes of Coronation 
Street going back to 
December 1960. The only 
company to have sur- 
vived unchanged from the start of 
ITV. Granada has one of the best 
records on preservation. Many an 
ITV programme has disappeared 
because a company lost its franchise 
and did not pass on its collection. 

Despite huge gaps, the BBC’s Film 
and Videotape Library in west 
London can still claim to be the 
largest of its kind in the world. It 
contains half a million cans of film, 
100.000 spools of videotape and 
20.000 viewing cassettes. Anne Han- 
ford, head of the library, says it was 


lack of awareness rather than delib- 
erate sabotage that led to pro- 
grammes being lost u It was such an 
enormous effort to produce pro- 
grammes that little thought was 
given to what happened to them 
once they had been shown..” 

The destruction of programmes is 
also related to the complicated 
question of copyright The usual 
agreement between a television com- 
pany and the performance unions 
(Equity and the Musicians Union) 
provides for two showings only of a 
programme within a prescribed pe- 
riod. 

When the BBC wanted to revive 
the Tony Hancock shows last year, it 
had to contact more than 100 artists 
who had appeared in the pro- 
grammes and agree new repeat fees. 
Small wonder that in years gone by, 
television companies took the view 
that if the programme could not be 


In the BBC a more positive 
attitude towards preservation started 
to emerge in the mid-1960s. Today 
between 80 and 90 per cent of BBC 
output is preserved, in most cases fin- 
al least five years. 

Anne Hanford is quick to point 
out that the Film and Video Library 
is still a library , not dn archive which 
is open to the outside worid. It exists 
to service the BBC itself to store 
programmes for repeat showings and 
to provide material for programme 
make rs. Though most programmes 
are now kept, no one outside the 
BBC can normally look at them. 

T he lack of public access has 
brought frequent criticism 
and Calls for the setting up 
of a national television 
collection- There is a body 
well placed to do this. The National 
Film Archive was established in the 
1930s to pr es erve cinema films but 
soon widened its function to take in 
television. Having virtually no 
money to buy material, the NFA had 
to rely on the genero s ity of the 
television companies in donating 
their cast-ofis. The situation im- 
proved from 1969 when the ITV 
companies started mflirin^r^ p ynnnat 
grant to the archive. 

In 1977 the Annan Committee on 
Broadcasting looked at the feasibility 
of a national television archive. 
They thought it highly desirable but 
prohibitively expensive. Since then, 
however, technical advances in 
video hardware and die develop- 
ment of one-inch videotape have 
reduced costs dramatically. 

In the past couple of years, 
progress has been spectacular. An 
important first step was taken in 
January 1985 when the National 
Film Archive began regular record- 
ings of ITV and Channel 4 pro- 
grammes. At the moment some 20 
per cent of output is preserved and 
viewing copies will be available to 
scholars and researchers when the 
archive moves to new premises early 
next year. The annual cost is 
£250.000. Twice this sum, £500,000, 
would enable every ITV and Chan- 
nel 4 programme to be taped. 

The next move is to extend the 
system to the BBC Negotiations are 
proceeding, and the National Film 
Archive could be taping BBC1 and 
BBC2 programmes from the begin- 
ning of next year. 

Then there is the matter of making 
the NFA's existing collection of 
10,000 television programmes avail- 
able on viewing copies. It would 
require a capital sum of £575,000 
and running costs would be between 
£120,000 to £130,000 a year. The 
NFA hopes to persuade the Govern- 
ment to provide it. 

The archive hopes eventually to 
become a clearing house for public 
access to all television material, 
including that still held by the BBC 
and ITV companies. Meanwhile, 
more direct access will be made 
possible by the establishment of a 
Videolheque in the basement of-tbe 
Museum of the Moving Image, due 
to open on London's South Bank late 
next year. If planning difficulties can 
be overcome, the Videotheque aims 
to offer several thousand historic 
television programmes for viewing 
by the public. 

So the story ends on a note of 
tentative optimism. Moves are 
under way that might eventually 
make it as easy to view the first 
episode of Coronation Street as it is 
to look up back issues of The Times 
in a public library. 


Labour ditches 
the drabbies 

The trendiest young men in Londog_ 
are busy restyling the Labou r Party s 
imagp — though not without opposition 


¥ 


“Only three people in Lon- 
don have got a jacket like 
this. I know. I’ve counted.” 
It's a black for-lined Levi 
bomber jacket and the 
speaker is Robert Elms. 

Elms prides himself on 
being the trendiest man in 
London. He is also one of the 
Labour Party's elite new band 
of style consultants and a key 
advuer on what Neil Kinn- 
ock should wear for his next 
party political broadcast 

This weekend. Elms has 
been asked to participate in a 
debate called “Revolting in 
Style”, part of a two-day 
conference sponsored fry the 
magazine Marxism Today at 
City University. The invita- 
tion is the latest in a long tine 
which followed the publica- 
tion of an Elms polemic 
called "Ditching the 
Drabbies: A Style for Soc- 
ialism”, published last May 
in New Socialist, an official 
Labour Party publication. 

New Socialist has just been 
redesigned by Neville Brody, 
former an director of The 
Face, perhaps the most in- 
fluential style magazine of the 
1980s. The Elms article con- 
tained tines tike: “When the 
council estates of Britain 
describe left-wingers as a 
h unch of dirty hippies, that is 
much more than a sartorial 
slight". 

The term “drabby” was 
coined by Richard North in 
an article in The Times last 
year. It described that section 
of the left which believed that 
if your hands weren't dirty, 
your conscience couldn’t be 
dean. “Drabby” became a 
byword in the Labour Parly 
for all that was lacking in its 
1983 election campaign. Mi- 
chael Foot was the archetypal 
drabby. 

Since then the old guard 
has been purged. Urbane 
professionals have swept into 
the party's Walworth Road 
HQ on the coat-tails of Neil 
Kinnock. There's the new 
general secretary, Larry 
Whitty, and Labour's crack 
team of PR people like 
former Weekend World pro- 
ducer Peter Manddson and 
his side-kick Tony Mann- 
ering. One of their first 
moves was to recruit an inner 
cabinet of young trendies like 
Robert Elms which has been 
called the “Style Chamber”. 

Members of this cabinet 
include Graham Ball, pub- 
licity manager for pop group 
Sigue Sigue Sputnik, and 
Steve Lewis, manager of the 
successful soul combo Ani- 
mal Nightlife. Last June they 
were all asked to join Red 
Wedge, the spearhead of 
Labour’s campaign to woo 
the 18 to 24-year-old voters. 

Unfortunately for the 
Kinnockites, things did not 
initially go quite as planned. 
To their honor, Robert and - 
his chums found several 
“drabbies” who had managed 
to shackle themselves to the 


Red Wedge bandwagon and 
suraested they hold the 
group's launch party on a 
council estate in Buxton, 
instead of at the House of 
Commons. “You can’t expect 
people like Geoi^ Michael 
and Sade to turn up to 
something like that, ob- 
jected Sms. ... , 

Anna-Joy David, , 
coordinator of Red Wedge, 
explained: “We just want 
people to think about pohn- 
cal ideas in a socialist 
environment. I'm not going 
to justify Red Wedge to 
anyone, let alone Robert 
Elms.” She was particularly 
upset by the criticism in 
Elms’s New Socialist article 
directed at the Greenham 
women for bringing the 
party’s image into disrepute. 

Another critic of the Elms 
approach is Steven Wells of 
the New Musical Express. 1 
think it’s a load of rubbish 
that working-class youth are 
all style-obsessed. For every 
punk, soul boy and skinhead.

"f V C t‘ * V ii-J* ■ 


Old and New Socialists: let 
Style Wars commence 

there are a hundred prats in 
anoraks and flared jeans.” - 

Despite the disagreements, 
it was Graham Ball who 
wrote some of the party's 
electoral leaflets during the 
Fulham by-election cam- 
paign, particularly those 
aimed at the 18 to 24-year- 
olds in the constituency. And 
Neville Brody has been asked 
to help spruce up Labour's 
iconocQgraphy. having al- 
ready given a FaeeA ift to the 
.leftist magazine, City Limits. 

However, the party would 
do well not to count on the 
long-term patronage of these 
young stylists. As Kinnock's 
Cred Committee are learning 
to their cost, these fast young 
men might do wonders for 
the party’s image, but they 
certainly do not come cheap. 
“When I went down to 
Oxford,” Elms complains, 
“theyhad the cheek to ask me 
to travel second-class.” The 
Labour Party may be an 
interesting side line for a man 
of Elms's tastes, but it cer- 
tainly won'rpay for his blade 
for-fined Levi bomber jacket.

Hoorah for hard work SATURDAY 




After the laid-back Sixties and 
street-marching Seventies, 
hard work appears to be back 
in vogue. 

“I’m here on a bit-man 
contract, then I'll transfer, 
make a packet and retire in 10 
years,” says one Porsche- 
driving, chain-smoking, 25- 
year-old executive. He is 
typical of the new breed of 
work-loving, reward-seekers 

who drive themselves to their 
limits. 

Trend-watcher Peter York 
says: “The number of kids 
who want to go to business 
school, who are going into 
business as if it were a totally 
new idea, is phenomenal.'” 

The ’80s mark the coming of 

the Age of Hard Work and 

Longer Honrs, a trend, accord- 
ing to George Bickerstaffe of 
the Institute of Directors, that 
is permeating organizations 
right across the board (and 
Board). 



Mr Bickerstaffe believes 

that today's Mr Average 

Businessman barely has time 
'to sleep. He cites the City 
whizz kid whose gargantuan 
salary demands a super-hu- 
man performance to justify ft.

first and second, family third 
and other commitments a poor 
fourth. “I regret that I never

MEDICAL BRIEFING 


That sleep 
of death 

The unusual and sad case of a 
man who died of insomnia is 
providing scientists with vital 
does to the understanding of 
sleep. Doctors now thlnlr they 
have identified a part of the 
brain which is essential to the 
control of sleep patterns and 
that they may even be able to 
find the gene which is behind 
it all. 

A 53-year-old American 
man died nine months after 
developing a progressive 
insomnia and other signs of 
brain damage. Surprisingly, it 
turned out that he wasn*t the 
only member of bis family to 
suffer this fate. Two of his 
sisters and many other rel- 
atives over three generations 


had died of a similar disease. 

During post-mortems on 
the man and one of his sisters, 
doctors at the Case Western 
Reserve University in Cleve- 
land, Ohio, discovered that 
both had lost brain cells from 
the thalamus. 

Now, as an editorial in the 
A1ei» England Journal of 
Medicine (where the case 
history was published re- 
cently) points out, research- 
ers are asking what role these 
specific brain cells play in 
sleep. They are looking for 
proteins In these cells which 
are “sleep messengers" or 
receive “sleep messages", and 
trying to piece together the 
mechanism. Because the con- 
dition was inherited it may 
also be possible to compare 
the DNA of his brain cells 
with that in normal cells and 
so identify' the gene involved.

Cancer: beverage report 

Recently we heard that coffee Is linked to heart 
KSKJ disease; now It seems that tea can give you 
rectal cancer. Doctors in Hawaii have exam- 
load and Interviewed nearly 8,000 men of 
r^rs^rj Japanese descent and followed them for at 
least 16 years to see what happened to their 
\X hftfttth. Analysts showed that those who 
habitually drank more than one cup of tea a day were four 
times more likely to develop rectal cancer than those who 
hardly ever took the beverage. 

The tea these men drank was “black" tea. so named 
because of the way it is picked and prepared rather than for 
any lack of milk. This is the sort of tea most commonly con- 
sumed in the UK. 

The study found no link, however, between tea and cancer 
of the bladder or kidney, as has been suggested by other re- 
search. Indeed, there was some evidence mat it might protect 
against cancer of the prostate. 

Writing in the British Journal of Cancer, the researchers say 
their findings have yet to be confirmed, but suggest that tea 
could cause rectal cancer either by direct action on the rectum 
or because It interacts with other cancer-promoting factors.

help line for all those pooled 
pnbescents, needing homely

toenail that’s turning green. 

The letters are usually 
signed “Anguished A-Ha fan"

worked oat the ‘ advice for 
themselves. Jenny sounds like 
a recorded message from a 
very tired social worker. 

Her replies are very often of 
the “here is a lesson in life" 
tone. For instance, a girl who 
tied to her friend that she had 
a boyfriend was told: “I hope 
yon hare learnt a lesson from 
all this. Never try to act big to 
your friends and never teQ Silly 
fibs. "This is hardly helpful as 
the girl has most likely been 
cursing herself for doing it in 
the first place. 

It Is this kind of moralizing 
attitnde that girls are trying to 
escape from when they write to 
an agony aunt. They want 
someone who can give them 
adnlt advice without the adult 
lecture.

Flames of fire and lice 

The National Pharmaceutical Association has 
issued a warning on foe dangers of using head 
lice lotion near a naked flame. It comes after an 
ft -year-old Yorkshire girl’s hair burst into 
frame when her father, after applying the lotion 
to her head, switched on a gas fire. The 
problem, the association says, is that most 
head lice lotions contain inflammable alcohol. It warns: "You 
should not allow treated hair near any naked flame — either 
cigarettes or an open fire. A hair dryer is also dangerous, as 
well as preventing the lotion from working property. The hair 
must be allowed to dry naturally in a warm but well-ventilated 
room." 

The association stressed this week that people should ask 
foe pharmacist’s advice when buying head lice lotion. Non- 
alcoholic versions are available but are generally used only by 
people with sensitive skins or asthma. In the hope that foe 
growing head Tice problem can be controlled, most authorities 
around foe country have agreed that only specific treatments 
will be used at any one time in any one area.

John Bifien. the Leader of the 
House, should think again if he 
believes he can. willy-nilly, drop 
long-planned Bills lo ensure essen- 
tial legislation makes it through 
Parliament before a 1 9S7 election. 
The record and print publishing 
industry is so upset that the 
government has apparently 
dropped its long-awaited Copy- 
right Bill — designed to sort out the 
anarchy in blank tapes, satellite 
TV and photo-copying markets — 
that it is bombarding Biifen with 
letters. Six Tory MFs have put 
their names to an early-day mo- 
tion urging the bill's inclusion in 
the Queen's Speech. One, David 
.Am ess, will be going on television 
this week to hammer home the 
point. 

Naturally 

While the nation awaits the 
privatization of British Gas, Tony 
Speller, a Tory member of the 
Commons energy committee, is 
casting his mind back to the stove- 
by-stove conversion to North Sea 
gas in the 1970s. He is so worried 
about what will happen when the 
North Sea fields run dry in 20 
years' time that he has tabled a 
question to the Energy Secretary, 
Peter Walker, asking for assur- 
ances “that no cost will (all upon 
the gas consumer if cookers and 
appliances have to be reconnected 
to town gas". I can provide my 
own written answer: British Gas 
tells me it will foot the bill — and 
the conversion will be handled at 
source by factories processing coal 
and oil-produced gas into “sub- 
stitute natural gas". 

• My award for the bad-taste dish 
of the day goes to the crassly- 
named RoUock's Restaurant in the 
heart of Fulham yuppieland. Its 
dessert menu offers “Banana 
Belgrauo: General ice-cream — 
that sinking feeling." 

Courting laughs 

A wit at Wood Green Crown 
Court has come up with an 
ingenious way of remedying the 
tedium of the Warned List As 
every solicitor knows, this is the 
catalogue of cases yet to be 
brought to trial. Barbara Taylor, 
one of the court's officers, has 
taken to adorning the list with 
sketches of skeletons in handcuffs 
and wheelchairs, designed to par- 
ody the interminable passage of 
time brought about by the back- 
log. Those on remand or bail will 
not, alas, be privy to the delights of 
the cartoons; they are for 
solicitors’ eyes only.

After my story about lefty - Lam- 
beth buying South African-linked 
catering uniforms, news reaches 
me that the London School of 
Economics, another of Duchess 
Uniforms’ customers, has can- 
celled its orders. Labour MP 
Frank Dobson last week wrote to 
lndraprasad Patel, the LSE direc- 
tor. asking it to stop buying from 
Duchess, and Patel has replied 
saying he will. “It is established 
policy that we don't buy South 
African products,” he told me. 

Weighing in 

Cyril Smith has got a nerve. 
Walking past the Tory’ employ- 
ment minister, David Trippier, in 
the House this week, he boomed: 
“Oil You want lo watch it, lad. 
you're putting on weight.” A 
startled Trippier. an old pal of 
Smith's from Rochdale Council 
days, confessed he has indeed put 
on' about half a stone, to a mere 
12'/i. Smith, who weighs in at 29 
stone, tells me “1 told him to go 
and have a word with Edwina.”

Disconnected 

The last day in office of Sir George 
S’oung. the environment under- 
secretary kicked out in last 
month's' reshuffle, was not a happy 
one, thanks to British Rail. His 
train to Reading to make a 
connection to attend a function in 
Devon was cancelled. With the 
next train limed to miss the 
connection by five minutes, his 
private office made a frantic plea 
to British Rail for the West 
Country train to be delayed at 
Reading until his arrival — but in 
vain. He tried to make it to 
Reading by taxi but missed the 
connection by three minutes, so 
got a taxi to lake him all the way lo 
Barnstaple. The angry ex-minister 
kicked up such a fuss that BR 
reimbursed the full £125 fare.

Monetary statistics were first pre- 
pared in their present form in 
1963. Since then broad money, on 
the familiar sterling M3 definition 
(which includes notes and coin, 
and all sterling bank deposits), has 
risen by about 12 times and. 
money national income by about 
12’/: times. 

Targets for the growth of broad 
money were introduced in July 
1976 to restrain inflation. The 
inflation rate then, as measured by 
the annual increase in the retail 
price index, was 1 3.3 per cent, and 
rising. Today it is 3 per cent. In 
more general terms, monetary 
targets have been instrumental in 
reducing the trend inflation rate 
from 1 5 per cent in the mid-1970s 
to 5 per cent at present. 

The crude facts of the link 
between broad money and na- 
tional income, and the apparent 
success of the system of monetary 
control established a decade ago, 
suggest that official targets for 
broad money should be retained. 
As the Americans say: “If it ain’t 
broke, don't fix it”. But the 
government has a different view. 
Broad money targets are now 
practically defunct and will soon, 
perhaps in the Chancellor’s au- 
tumn statement, be formally aban- 
doned. 

The thinking behind this change 
was explained in a speech by 
Robin Leigh-Pemberton, Gov- 
ernor of the Bank of En glan d, at 
Loughborough University last 
week. His central argument was 
that technical change in the finan- 
cial system has disturbed the 
relationship between broad mon- 
ey and national income so 
radically in the 1980s that it is 
“fair to ask whether a broad 
money target continues to serve a 
useful purpose". Perhaps “we 
would do better to dispense with 
monetary targe try altogether". 

“Put not thy trust in princes” 
would seem to be a fitting epitaph 
both for the career of Sheikh 
Ahmed Zaki Yamani, just dis- 
missed as Saudi Arabia's oil 
minister, and for postwar British 
policy towards Saudi Arabia and 
the Arab world generally. 

Yamani was the architect of the 
original Arab oil offensive in 1973 
and of subsequent Opec razzias 
which drove up the price of oil to 
vertiginous heights, forced the 
industrial nations to reduce 
sharply their dependence on the 
Middle East and eventually 
brought such a fall in demand as to 
deplete Saudi Arabia’s coffers, 
even causing tremors in the ruling 
dynasty itself. 

The architects of British Middle 
Eastern policy in recent decades 
have been imbued with an attitude 
of mind diametrically opposite to 
Yamani ’s confident, bold, even 
overbearing demeanour. Con- 
vinced of foe decline of Britain as 
a great power, unable to influence, 
let alone shape, the course of 
events in foe Middle East, they 
have consistently emphasized foe 
pre-eminence of British commer- 
cial over political interests while 
counselling foe adoption of an 
accommodating stance towards 
any and every Arab regime, 
however unattractive. In foe last 
resort, so foe coda to foe argument 
usually runs, Britain's future lies 
in Europe and not in an unreward- 
ing preoccupation with post-im- 
perial responsibilities East of Suez. 

Two developments of late have 
thrown these certitudes into 
doubt: foe irrelevance of the Arab 
“oil weapon” and foe rise of 
Middle Eastern terrorism, sym- 
bolized respectively by the eclipse 
of Yamani and foe Hindawi case. 
Syrian complicity in terrorism, 
proved to foe hilt in foe Hindawi 
trial even provoked the British 
government into a refreshing ex- 
pression of displeasure with foe 
Baaihist regime. 

But faith in foe efficacy of 
turning foe other cheek still lin- 
gers. The British ambassador in 
Damascus is reported to have 
expressed “sorrow and unhapp- 
iness" on being told of foe 
severance of diplomatic relations. 
His mission, he said regretfully, 
which was to boost relations 
between foe two countries, had 
been a failure. Would it not have 
been more seemly, as well as more 
salutary, for him to have uttered a 
few words of condemnation of foe 
Syrian regime? 

At foe heart of foe arguments 
deployed by foe Foreign Office lo 
justify its placatory approach to 
foe Arab world lies a conviction, 
accorded foe status of holy writ, 
that British and Arab interests are, 
if not exactly alike, at least 
reasonably compatible. It was a 
doubtful proposition at the best of 
times, and these are not foe best of 
times. For instance, it was in 


The Sunday Express published a 
sensational front page “exclusive” 
at the weekend claiming that the 
Aids virus was “artificially created 
by American scientists during 
laboratory experiments which 
went disastrously wrong” 

Tbe allegation was based on 
interviews with three scientists: 
one in London, who was con- 
vinced that Aids was created by 
accident during cancer research, 
“probably in tbe United States”; 
another scientist in California, 
who believed that Aids “must 
have been genetically engineered”; 
and a third. Professor Jacob Segal, 
who “pinpointed a secret Ameri- 
can laboratory at Ford Detrick, 
Maryland, as the most likely 
place” for this engineering 
Segal, we are told, “bolds no 
particular political beliefs.” He 
just happens to live in East Berlin. 

A revelation based on such poor 
evidence would deserve no atten- 
tion were it not for foe fact that it 
coincides precisely with a current 
KGB disinformation campaign. 
Speaking at a seminar in London 
last Friday, Soviet defector Ilya 
Dzhirkvelov described how he 
had planted false information in 
the Western press while working 
for the KGB. He outlined various 
campaigns now being orchestrated 
by his former colleagues to foment 
hostility to foe United States 
among the people of Nato allies 
and Third World countries; these 
range from whipping up concern 
over “Star Wars” and other 


Why Lawson 
must stick

This argument has considerable 
force. There is no doubt, for 
example, that foe more attractive 
interest rates now available on 
bank deposits should encourage 
people to hold a high share of their 
wealth in this form. But there are 
at least two reasons far scepticism, 
perhaps even cynicism, about the 
government’s decision. 

The first is that technological 
advance in banking and other 
financial services has been contin- 
uous since foe early 1960s. Some 
of foe innovations have reduced 
the amount of money people need 
to keep (as a proportion of 
income) in their banks, while 
others have increased it. But over 
foe whole period their effects have 
broadly cancelled out Although 
foe rate of change may have 
accelerated in recent years, and 
there does appear to have been 
some rise in foe desired ratio of 
money to national income, foe 
1 980s are not obviously special or 
unusuaL 

An unhappy memory is that foe 
Bank of England made excuses for 
very high growth rates of broad 
money in foe early 1970s by 
attributing them to technical and 


institutional developments It 
could not easily interpret. But 
confusion about the meaning of 
the statistics should not have been 
a pretext for nihilis m about the 
right way to conduct policy. In 
1975 the inflation rate exceeded 
25 per cent, the highest in Britain's 
peace-time history. 

Equally, technical and institu- 
tional developments today should 
not be used to justify any rate, no 
matter how rapid, of broad money 
growth. It is one thing to say that 
foe liberalization of mortgage 
finance, the internationalization 
of company finance, foe Big Bang 
and various other upheavals have 
altered foe relationship between 
money, income and expenditure. 
It is something quite different to 
claim that, in foe new circum- 
stances, there is no such thing as 
an excessive rate of broad money 
growth which will cause inflation. 

The second worry is related to 
foe first. Ifbroad money was being 
demoted at a time when foe Bank 
of England was meeting hs targets 
with reasonable precision, there 
would not be much suspicion in 
foe City about foe government’s 
motives. But, In feet, broad money

Britain's interest to continue 
pumping North Sea oil at a time 
when Saudi Arabia wanted to 
restrict production to reduce the 
oil glut and hold up prices. 
Fortunately, since this was a 
decision which fell mainly to other 
departments, notably foe Trea- 
sury, British interests prevailed. 

As a rule, foe Foreign Office will 
go to foe ends of foe earth to avoid 
saying or doing anything severe to 
an Arab ruler or government, lest 
it arouse resentment or provoke 
retribution. In part this delicate 
concern for Arab sensibilities can 
be ascribed to foe embarrassment 
felt by foe Arabists over Britain's 
imperial past in foe Middle East 
They could, if they so wished, rid 
themselves overnight of this 
particular incubus simply by 
contemplating foe Arab past The 
Arabs understand perfectly well 
the essence of imperial rule and 
recall their own era of imperial 
domination with pride. What has 


® Voflcswagm of America 
baffled them is the spectacle of an 
ex-imperial but still great power 
feiling to behave in accordance 
with its stature but reacting to 
almost every challenge with a pre- 
emptive cringe. 

Until the end of tbe Indian and 
colonial empires, the Foreign 
Office's influence upon British 
Middle Eastern policy was tem- 
pered by the views of foe India 
Office and foe Colonial Office. 
Diplomacy of its very nature is a 
process of bargaining which too 
often breeds a habit of appease- 
ment Imperial rule, in contrast, 
breeds a habit of authority, along 
with a proprietorial attitude to the 
lands ruled and a deep sense of 
responsibility to their peoples, 
sentiments which in their turn 
induce a strong aversion to seeing 
these lands and the destinies ox 
their peoples bargained away in 
diplomatic exchanges in distant 
capitals. These were the fun- 
damental reasons which made tbe 


Aids: Moscow’s new 
weapon in its 
secret war of smears 


aspects of US military strategy to 
attempts to blame the Americans 
for virtually every unpleasant 
feature of contemporary life, 
including Aids. 

The Sunday Express “scoop” 
was in feet already known to 
readers of Soviet Analyst, which I 
edit. .An article late last year 
quoted an English language broad- 
cast to Asia by the Peace and 
Progress radio station in Moscow 
alleging that outbreaks of Aids 
“are as a rule registered in the 
areas near American war bases.” 
The commentator continued: “A 
whole number of facts gives 
ground to assume that the primary 
cause of the disease was a secret 
experiment for developing new 
types of bacteriological weapons 
in the laboratories or the Pentagon 
and CIA.” 

Another Moscow broadcast, in 
Turkish, warned Nato countries to 
close US bases because of foe 
“devastating danger of an epi- 
demic- of Aids, foe result of 
frightful experiments conducted 
on humans by the Pentagon.” 

Before he defected to foe West, 
Dzhirkvelov worked clandestinely 


in Switzerland for Service A of foe 
KGB First Directorate, which is 
responsible for spreading false or 
misleading information, 
manipulating the Western media 
and r unning agents of influence 
and from organizations. These 
operations come under foe direc- 
tion of foe ruling Politburo 
through one of its senior mem- 
bers, the KGB chief Viktor 
Chebrikov. 

Many of the Soviet diplomats 
recently expelled by Washington 
were known KGB agents involved 
in such measures, as were some of 
the journalists and diplomats sent 
home from Britain last year. Well 
documented cases in other coun- 
tries include that of foe Danish 
agent of influence. Arne Herloev 
Peterson, who campaigned for a 
Nordic zone free of nuclear weap- 
ons, and among other operations 
arranged for the printing of a 
pamphlet attacking Mrs Thatcher. 

A Norwegian government of- 
ficial, .Ame Trebolt, was convicted 
in June last year for espionage. In 
France, foe case of journalist 
Pierre-Chaiies Pafo6 received 
considerable publicity, while in 


growth is not only far ahead of the 
official target range, but also — at 
almost 20 per cent in the last year 
— higher than at any time since the 
Barber boom. 

There may be grounds for 
expecting broad money to increase 
by 3 or 4 per cent a year more than 
national income for quite a long 
period. That would, indeed, ex- 
plain why the 1 1 or 12 per cent 
increases in broad money re- 
corded between 1981 and 1985 
were typically accompanied by 
real growth of 3 per cent and 
inflation of 5 per cent But how 
can 20 per cent rises in sterling M3 
be reconciled with the 
government's objectives? 

A very modest grasp of ele- 
mentary arithmetic is sufficient to 
suggest that, if the pattern of the 
early 1980s persists, 20 per cent 
increases in broad money imply 
that money gross national product 
will eventually rise by about 15 
per cent. Since it is fantasy to 
imagine that real growth can be 
much above 5 per cent, the 
mwwag i- must be *hat inflati on will 
accelerate in foe next few years, 
perhaps to as much as 10 percent. 

In short, the feet of financial 
change does not in and of itself 
rule out tbe possibility of exces- 
sive monetary growth, while the 
latest numbers suggest disturb- 
ingly that monetary growth has 
indeed become excessive. It may 
be convenient for Nigel Lawson 
that he can discard a mqjor barrier 
to stimulatory policies so dose to 
a general election. But, after the 
experience of tbe Barber boom 
and its sequel, no one should be 
surprised if seemingly good politi- 
cal tactics in foe short run prove to 
be electorally unrewarding and 
bad economic strategy in the 
medium term.

India Office, in particular, more 
tenacious in its defence of British 
interests in the Middle East 

Now the Foreign Office is tbe 
sole repository of Middle Eastern 
expertise upon which the Cabinet 
can draw for advice. We are today 
all too well aware of the 
melancholy results that have 
flowed from that advice: the 
shattered hopes and abandoned 
friends that have fallen victim to 
foe Foreign Office’s nerveless 
compulsion to trim to the wind of 
Arab radicalism. 

A similar anxiety to please 
governed its relations with tra- 
ditional regimes. For instance, 
until foe early 1950s British 
diplomats visiting Riyadh were 
required, and apparently willingly 
consented, to wear Arab dress. 
They might, if they were so 
inclined, have derived a little 
reassurance about the benefits of a 
more robust demeanour by cast- 
ing a look back to the example of 
an Arabist of an earlier generation. 

When Lord Carrington, as For- 
eign Secretary, travelled to Riyadh 
a tew years ago to atone in person 
fin* the offence caused foe Saudi 
royal family by the screening on 
British television of Death of a 
Princess, he was graciously as- 
sured by King Khalid that foe 
bonds of Anglo-Saudi friendship 
remained intact, particularly as 
foe royal family still honoured the 
memory of Captain Shakespear. 
Carrington, so report had it, was 
somewhat puzzled, since it seemed 
unlikely that the Saudi monarch 
was an admirer of tbe Bard. 

The reference, in feet, was to 
Captain WJ1J. Shakespear, tbe 
British political a^nt in Kuwait, 
who in 1914 undertook a hazard- 
ous journey across Arabia from 
foe Gulf coast to the Sinai 
peninsula. Although he travelled 
through the heart of the Saudi 
domains, and was attended by an 
escort of puritanical Wahhabi 
ikhwan who abhorred liquor, to- 
bacco and Christians alike, 
Shakespear ignored the demand 
that he don Arab dress but wore 
instead his Indian Political Ser- 
vice uniform. He also took with 
him his cases of whisky and 
Moselle, along with a supply of 
cigars, all of which he would enjoy 
at the end of the day’s march, 
whatever his escort might think. 

Shakespear was killed in Janu- 
ary 1915 in a tribal affray while 
serving as a political emissary to 
IbnSaud. This was the man whose 
name, it appears, is still revered in 
royal circles in Riyadh. Perhaps 
now, with foe fell of Yamani and 
the serving of notice on Syria that 
state-sponsored terrorism win not 
be tolerated, the Foreign Office's 
Arabists might be tempted to take 
a leaf out of Shakespear^ book.

Greece the Soviet connections of 
foe newspaper Ephnos are being 
closely examined. La st July foe 
Dakar weekly Afiique Nouvetle 
and The Nation of Nairobi both 
carried a letter from Gbenga 
Adefuyeye, of the Patriotic Youth 
Movement of Nigeria, claiming 
that foe Aids virus was developed 
by foe US military. 

The US State Department now 
co-ordinates an inter-agency 
working group to counter such 
Soviet measures by alerting the 
media and general public to 
forgeries and other methods of 
disinformation. Because of tbe 
extent of these activities this is no 
easy task. Herbert Romerstein. a 
senior officer in this working 
group, exhibits with a certain wry 
pride a forgery which actually uses 
the letterhead and signature from 
a letter he himself wrote and 
circulated to expose an earlier 
forgery. A pair of scissors and a 
photocopier were enough to pro- 
duce a “letter” in which he was 
made to argue (in rather bad 
English) that the Chernobyl 
disaster be exploited for propa- 
ganda purposes. 

Although Britain is less of a 
target for such Soviet operations 
than foe US, it seems that here, 
too, more effort is required to 
persuade the media and public 
that disinformation should be 
discussed in a wider context than 
US policy towards Libya.

Trawling for 
trouble 


The British government's decision 
to enforce a fishing zone of 150 
miles round tbe Falkiands is, so 
ferasl can see, another example of 
the Prime Minister’s tendency to 
do things on foe international 
scene mainly because the Foreign 
Office advises her not to. At any 
rate, she has overriden two 
substantial objections — in part, 
no doubt for the stated reason of 
wishing to conserve South At- 
lantic fish stocks but partly, 
without question, for the pleasure 
of putting the Argies in their place. 

The first doubt is whether 
Britain can make its fiat stick. The 
patrol vessels and aircraft we now 
have at our disposal in the South 
Atlantic are probably insufficient 
to police foe extended beat of 
water ami even less adequate to 
take on the consequences of 
having to warn off and, if nec- 
essary, arrest members of tbe 
Soviet and Bulgarian fishing 
fleets. There is likely to be a 
serious choice between humili- 
ation or reinforcement, the fetter 
at an expense and risk absurdly 
disproportionate to the im- 
portance of the issue at stake. 

The second, and more serious, 
objection, however, is that the 
gesture will set back foe slow 
process by which Argentine public 
opinion is coming to a reasonable 
view, of its relations with the 
outside world in general, and Brit- 
ain in particular. It is not easy to 
be aware of this factor at 6,000 
miles distance, but in Buenos 
Aires, where I was last week, it 
sticks out a mile. 

It is three years since I was last 
in Argentina. At that time; not 
long after foe Falkiands war, tbe 
generals were still in power. A lot 
has changed since then. The 
British visitor finds democracy, 
embodied in President Alfonsm’s 
government, very firmly and even 
sedately in controL The aimed 
forces are at a low ebb in every 
way, their leading generals in jail 
or disgraced, their defence budget 
cut, their political influence about 
to be further curtailed by statute. 
The once-mighty Peronist Party is 
split and painfully ineffective in 
opposition. Until this week, foe 
Fhlkfends issue had been wdl. 
below foe political horizon for a 
longtime. 

This outward tranquility is a 
relief after the miserable turmoil 
of foe feiriy recent past, but it is 
probably deceptive. Argentina is 
still an uneasy country, fearful of 
hs history, anxious about its 
future. The economy, especially, 
remains a pretty awful mess after, 
its roller-coaster experiences 
under Alfonsin. Inflation, which 
soared up. to an annnual rate of 
1 ,800 percent at foe end ofhis first 
year, had been brought down to a 
modest 36 per cent by this 
summer as a result of a savage 
stabilization programme imposed 
by the IMF, but it is now creeping 
up again towards 60 or 70 per cent. 

The reasons are basically that 
the unions are still too powerful to 
be made to submit to serious 
incomes restraint for mere than a 
very short time, and thata bloated 


and hopelessly inefficient public 
sector is fed by the most powerful 
vested interests of society. To be 
Wfoese problems are direct 
lecactes from Feron. but because 
AiftSfo has not felt aWeto do 
more than tinker with them yet, 
they continue to undermine all 
efforts to solve the overseas debt 
crisis in the short term or modern- 
ize the economy in the tong. 

The nervous nationalism that 
spreads from this obvious feet * 
pervasive. It raises, for example, 
the question ofbow disgruntled an 
army starved of proper funds may 
become, and how quickly it might 
return to power if hyper-inflation 
taVre hold again. It raises the 
question of whether Argentina can 
ever catch up with its old rival, 
Brazil Above all it raises foe 
problem of relations with foe 
United States. Reality proclaims 
that Argentina is desperately 
dependent on tbe US for its 
economic future, but national 
pride ordains that this can never 


This is a potentially explosive 
brew which Alfonsin is handling 
with considerable skill. In particu- 
lar, he is combining a realistic 
move towards fjiu |np * fl l orthodoxy - 
for the reassurance of foe Ameri- 
can ba nks with well publicized 
of political non-align- 
ment— a visit to Moscow, a trip to 
Havana — for the reassurance of 
his nationalists. He is obviously 
trying to cool things down and is 
playing for time in which to set his 
economic house in order. 

The Falkiands question is not 
only made more difficult by this 
perspective; it is itseff a dangerous 
complication on Alfonsin’s ho- 
rizon it raises the emotional 
temperature whenever it appears. 
So fer as settling the issue is 
concerned, Alfonsin has obviously 
decided that there will be no A ' 
serious negotiation — ie, dis- 
cussion of foe ul tima te fete of foe 
island* — while Mrs Thatcher is in 
Downing Street. Until she departs, 
therefore; there is no point in 
giving away anything that will 
draw attention to the issue and 
increase foe general mischief 
potential of nationalists of right 
and left 

This calculation explains the 
apparently idiotic Argentine re- 
fusal ta end foe war formally or, 
for that matter, to enter multi- 
lateral negotiations on fisheries. In 
the longer term Alfonsin evidently 
hopes that a calm atmosphere will 
help settle the Falkiands issue, and 
a Falkiands settlement will re- 
inforce the calm necessary for 
economic progress. . 

Mrs Thatcher might, of course, .. 
argue that foe sovereignty of the* 
Falkiands ought to be forever non- 
negotiable and there is no reason 
why she should assist Alfonsin to 
solve any of his problems, long- 
term or short. But for anyone who 
believes that some eventual com- 
promise is both desirable and 
possible, Alfonsin’s problems 
merit consideration; foe feet that 
the latest twist in foe fisheries 
dispute will make them worse 
deserves more attention than h 
has had.

Ringing in 
the old 


It was a historic moment tins week 
as Mrs Thatcher finally declared 
foe M25 open with these ringing 
words: “I finally declare 1 the M25 
open, and lam pleased to say that 
we shall waste no tune in selling it 
off to the public as soon as we Can 
get the shares printed.” To 
commemorate this great engineer- 
ing feat. Moreover 1 Publications 
are proud to announce foe appear- 
ance this week of a new book. The 
Impossible Road. 

The tide reflects not only the 
views of those who thought foe 
M25 would never be built, but also 
the experience of those who have 
to drive along iL Whatever our 
feelings, tbe M25 has already 
entered English folklore and be- 
come part of the nation’s heritage, 
and foe time is now ripe for a big 
picture book full of fascinating 
details, costing a mere £15. 

The opening of this magnificent 
volume takes us bade into the 
depths of history, when London 
was just a small Saxon village. But 
even Saxon villages got crowded 
sometimes, with cattle, cans and 
runaway chickens, and archae- 
ologists now believe they have 
found an ancient path which, was 
the first bypass round London. 
They estimate that in those days ft 
took nearly three and a half 
minutes to walk around the 
capital, which certainly ptus our 
modern engineers to shame. 

The Romans seem to have 
made no attempt to put a ring road 
round London, almost certainly 
because they were only capable of 
building straight roads and thus 
could not even conceive of a ring ' 
road. Their solution was to put 
London’s bypass right through the 
middle of the city.-and to init to 
death anyone parking .on it for 
more than 10 minutes. But the 
idea of a road round London was 
revived by William foe Con- 
queror, who saw it as a natural link 
for foe many thousands up north 
who wanted quick, access to the . 
seaside resorts-of Normandy, and 


day they are no refreshment stops 
anywhere on the M25. 

Milton was a great advocate of 
building a ring road round 
•London, mostly based on his 
detestation of foe capital. One of 
his eariy pamphlets was entitled 
Upon The Advantages Of Building 
A Swift And Easy Highway From 
Essex To Leatherhead, While 
Avoiding The Great Smoke. This 
was c hal le n ged by an anonymous 
«say entitled What Manner Qf 
Fool Would Wish To Travel To 
Leatherhead, Mr Milton? To 
which tbe famous writer made 
answer with the celebrated pam- 
phlet Anyone Living In Essex, Of 
Gw™, You Blockhead, which 
effectively silenced ht» adversary 
but brought foe building of the 
road no nearer. 

Some of the most interesting 
illustrations are hitherto unknown 
stetcfaes by Capability Brown, 
who was commissioned by the 
government to design a carriage- 
way around London. It would 
have been an elegant affeir, stud- 
fosd with Greek temples and 
woman refreshment areas, but 
Brown, who was used to the quiet 
®osteaoe of private parks, es- 
timated foe maximum traffic- at 
five carnages and 10 coaches a 
day, and therefore made no pro- 
vision for overtaking. The link

ment of change in the British 
broadcasting system and the 
way in which over the turbu- 
lent years ahead the best of the 
BBC can be saved from 
destruction by the worst ' 
Few - even in the BBC TV 
newsroom itself — would say 


that the coverage of the Libyan 
raid showed the BBC at its 
best The events were, indeed, 
as Mr Tebbit’s report aigues, 
open to two opposite inter- 
pretations, either as an illegal 
attack by a militaristic super- 
power or as a legitimate action 
against a terrorist dictator. The 
judgement of the British peo- 
ple swung between these two 
extremes. Zt was an important 
time for the BBC to stick 
tightly to its constitutional 
requirement to “treat 
controversial subjects with 
due impartiality”. It is dear 
that it did not do so. 

It should give no journalist 
pleasure to describe political 
pressure (applied with the 
benefit of leisure and hind- 
sight) upon the work of fellow 
journalists (carried out, 
particularly in this case, with 
difficulty and haste). The BBC 
wQl doubtless argue in reply 
that the Tories are unjustified 
in examining only two news 
bulletins, that impartiality has 
to be measured over the full 
duration of an incident. It may 
also argue that if the con- 
sequences of the raid had been 
different, if Libyan reprisals 
had been more intense, if the 
Arab world had rallied behind 
Libya, then their journalists 
would not now be in the dock.' 

But the feet remains that on 
those crucial nights, when the 
standing of the Atlantic alli- 
ance in the eyes of the British 
people was under intense scru-

The fell of Sheikh Yamani, for 
24 years Saudi oil minister and 
for half that time the embodi- 
ment of the power of the Opec 
cartel, is a symbol of how 
times — and the world oil 
market — have changed. 
Sheikh Yamani had progres- 
sively fallen from grace be- 
cause he could not satisfy the 
Kingdom’s Bickering factions. 
And that was because Opec’s 
abuse of its own power re- 
sulted in that power bemg lost 

Sheikh Yamani has long- 
appeared as the acceptable face 
of Opea He was a leader in the 
Opec coup to quadruple oil 
prices in 1973-74. But since 
then, he has argued, often 
vainly, for stability — the 
leitmotiv of most Saudi policy. 
Unlike many who saw oil as a 
political weapon, he under- 
stood the interdependence of 
oil producers and their indus- 
trial customers. . . 

Saudi leadership has come 
unstuck, however, because of 
its attempts to keep up sagging 
oil prices after the price rises of 
1979 sent the world economy 
reeling and drove the West to 
economise on energy. The- 
■biggest exporter acted as the 
swing producer, absorbing cuts 
in production. Most other 
Opec members cheated on 
their agreed quotas and, with 
Britain’s North Sea fields to 
the fore, non-Opec producers 
pumped ever more, leaving 
Opec with less than half free 
world output and exposed to 
financial markets in oil. 

The Kingdom reached the 
end of its tether when its 


output had slipped to 2 million 
barrels a day, putting severe 
pressure on the its apparently 
jimitlessly rich economy. 
Sheikh Yamani was charged 
with the impossible task of 
increasing the country’s out- 
put with stable prices. ' 

Other Opec members were 
not prepared to make room for 
the Saudis to increase produc- 
tion. And when the Saudis, 

. their bluff having been called, ■ 
turned up the taps to allow 
world prices to fell and teach 
both their fellow Opec mem- 
bers and Britain a lesson, they 
completely miscalculated. 

The world economy needed 
lower oil prices and Britain, in 
particular, was not prepared to 
try to shore up the cartel that 
had wreaked such economic 
havoc whatever the narrow 
short-term interest The finan- 
cial market for oil, as so often 
happens, exaggerated the ef- 
fects of the new oil surplus, 
cutting prices by two thirds in 
six months, leaving even Saudi 
finances fer worse off. The 
consequent pressure on Opec’s 
wild men has resulted in new 
output restrictions and quotas 
being patched up. 

But the Gulf states will not 
easily forgive Saudi Arabia.In 
the tangled world of Gulf 
politics, the Saudis have 
stretched their relations with 
aggressive revolutionary Iran 
to breaking point Partly in 
consequence, they have upset 
vulnerable Kuwait — 
des-perate to avoid flak from 
the Iran-Iraq war — and the 
hard-pressed emirates. 

Even the United States now 


seems in two minds about oil 
prices, wanting low energy 
prices but fearful of the effects 
of a sharp fell on the banking 
system and the stability of 
friendly producers such as 
Mexico. Such arguments are 
magnified inside Saudi Arabia. 
Its oil policy never rested on 
one man, as has been maria 
increasingly plain at recent 
Opec meetings. But it appears 
that discounted oil deals de- 
signed to increase Saudi sales 
above its current 4.35 barrels 
per day quota triggered the fell 
.of the Kingdom’s leading com- 
moner as a scapegoat 

His acting successor Mr 
Hisham Nazer, or whoever 
ends up as Saudi oil minister, 
will face the same circle that 
cannot be squared. Under the 
leadership of Kuwait; Opec 
will try to move in December 
to a new system of permanent 
quotas based on complex for- 
mulae that give something to 
all and enshrine higher shares 
for Kuwait and Saudi Arabia. 

If the new system is agreed, 
by no means a forgone conclu- 
sion, it will face the same 
pressures as before. Opec 
wants both to increase total 
output slightly and to move 
the oil price up to $18 per 
barrel. If the acceleration of 
free world economic growth 
allows that to happen, it wifi be 
largely accidental Opec still 
has considerable force in the 
oQ market. But it is today as 
much a price taker as a price 
maker. Fortunately, Mr Nazer 
will never take the role on 
world stage that Sheikh Ya- 
mani once so elegantly held. 


FISHING BIGHTS - AND WRONGS 


LETTERS TO THE EDITOR 


tiny, the BBCs main news 
programme made mistakes of 
feet and interpretation, leaning 
dearly towards the view that 
the Americans were wrong to 
attack Libya and that Mis 
Thatcher was wrong to allow 
bases in Britain to be used for 
that attack. Were the bulletins 

the result of Sloppy thinking, 

wishful thinking, subversive 
thinking, or simple absence of 
thinkiiig? It is to be hoped that 
the BBC editors know some of 
the answers already through 
the normal process of editorial 
inquests. If they do not, then 
standards at the BBC have 
indeed fallen, perhaps beyond 
rescue. 

The BBC has to come up i 
with convincing explanations I 
— and decisive action — fast. 1 
According to the Corporation I 
spokesman, the response is 
being prepared not by the 
Director General but by the 
editor of television news who 
is thus both investigator and 
accused in this case. That is a 
mistake. The BBC news sys- 
tem is not overall as black as 
Mr Tebbit paints it But, just 
as those two bulletins in April 
coloured the minds of millions 
of voters about the Libyan 
raid, so will Mr Tebbifs 
strictures colour the minds of 
millions of voters concerning 
the BBC 

The Corporation is fighting 
for its life. It still shows no sign 
of appreciating that feet.

The need to deter over-fishing 
in the - waters around the 
Falkland Islands has annually 
become more pressing. While 
. 250 boats trawled there in 
1 984, the total had risen to 450 
in 1985 and to 600 so fer this 
year. 

Falklanders have long ar- 
gued the case for a fisheries 
exclusion zone, . controlled 
from Port Stanley by a licens- 
- ing arrangement. They would 
thus earn a living from their 
surrounding waters without 
the inconvenience of having to 
put to sea themselves. Until 
now this has been opposed by 
the British government on the 
grounds .that it would be 
difficult and-expensive to pol- 
ice and would thus impose an 
unpopular burden on the Brit- 
ish taxpayer. 

Its preferred option has been 
a multilateral, arrangement 
under the auspices of the Food 
and Agriculture Organization 
(FAO). Signatories would have 
a vested interest in policing the 
zone themselves and ensuring 
that catch quotas were ob- 
served. The FAO has been 
compiling a report with this 
■end in view, and even Argen- 
tina seemed at one time to be 
in favour. 

But the task has taken much 
longer than expected and the 
FAO study has repeatedly 
missed its deadlines. While 
concern has grown over the 
fish stocks, everyone has 
blamed everyone -else - the 
Argentines complaining that 


the continuing British 150-mite 
protection zone around the 
islands has prevented their 
own gunboats from policing 
the waters themselves. 

This might be just as weQ 
because one of their gunboats 
actually sank a Taiwanese 
trawler in Argentine waters 
last summer. The Buenos 
Aires government has, more- 
over, taken , matters into its 
own hands by signing bilateral 
fishing treaties with the Soviet 
Union and Bulgaria which 
have impinged on the terri- 
torial waters round the Falk- 
lands. With no multilateral 
treaty in sight and the Ar- 
gentines doing their own thing; 
British policy has changed and 

a fisheries exclusion zone has 
been declared. 

It is less than ideal because, 
for one thing, it helps to 
perpetuate the ill-feeling be- 
tween Britain and Argentina. 
In that sense ix might be hoped 

that the new regime, which 
coroes into force next Feb- 
ruary l r w£Q be an interim 
arrangement until the FAO 
has had been able to work out 
an agreed long-term solution. 

This depends, however, 
upon how sucessfolly the 
islanders can run things. The 
difference between this 
arrangement and previous 
proposals is that the zone will 
be administered and patrolled 
by the Falklands government 
itself, which will pay for 
chartering two patrol vessels 
and a surveillance aircraft out 


of the revenue from licences. 
The job should be less onerous 
than was at first thought 
because studies have shown 
that the fish concentrate in 
certain areas — obviating toe 
need for gunboats to sail 
endlessly round the entire 
zone. The existing Royal Navy 
and RAF presence also means 
that the civil patrol craft would 
not be entirely unsupported. 

Falklanders hope that the 
revenue from licences will 
more than meet the costs. Not 
only that, but a properly 
administered system of con- 
trols should guarantee the 
future of the local fishing 
industry, thereby encouraging 
the growth of profitable on- 
shore services to maintain and 
supply visiting boats. If in six 
months’ time the system is 
working well, the Falklanders 
themselves would be reluctant 
to surrender control to some 
international body. 

Such considerations lie 
ahead, however. For the time 
being, it looks as if the 
Government has acted cor- 
rectly in acting unilaterally. It 
should prevent the further 
erosion of fish stocks and if the 
islands* economy can be made 
to prosper, it will be a consul- 
erable bonus. The dis- 
advantage lies in- the further- 
damage it does to Anglo- 
Argentine relations. But at 
least to some extent, the 
Argentines have only them- 
selves to Name.

answers back 

Front the Chairman of the Stock 
!■ Exchange 

* Sir. On October 27 the Stock 
Exchange transformed the opera- 
tion of its markets from single to 
' dual-capacity and introduced 
negotiated commissions. Through 
technological innovation it has 
bees possible for practitioners 
within its markets to conduct the 
major- part of their businesses, and 
their clients’ businesses, from 
their own premises rather than a 
central trading floor. 

For the list four days the 
information systems have earned 
the necessary information to these 
premises for better than 97 per 
cent of scheduled service time. On 
each of these days better than £2 
billion of the public’s business has 
been safely executed (a normal 
amount, I should add), in sizes 
and at prices that match any major 
market in the world. 

For four days now your col- 
umns have carried lurid and 
emotive words Eke “fiasco” “ut- ■ 
ter confusion”, “sham Wes” and 
“collapse” — and run a single word 
about the huge improvements in 
the operation of the market. 

Whilst we are aware of our 
outstanding problems, and are 
walking hard to solve them, I 
think you should be aware. Sir, 
that your coverage has been garish

White poppies 

From Mr Christopher Crabbie 
Sir, My family recently visited 
Passchendaele on the anniversary 
of the ill-feted offensive. We spent 
a while in one of the well-tended 
cemeteries scattered across the 
battlefield. My young sons were 
not I think, moved by the glory of 
war but by the bravery and pity 
expressed in those rows of simple 
headstones. 

I imagine others will share 
similar thoughts as we approach 
Remembrance Sunday. So I was 
saddened at the eampni g w to 
replace the day’s important sym- 
bol with a nonsensical while 
poppy (report, October 29). 

t-for one, find it hard to accept 
this noisy, political intrusion into 
an occasion for quiet reflection 
and gratitude for the sacrifice of 
others. After all. the hedgerows of 
that sad Flanders landscape were 
studded the other day with red 
poppies. We saw no white ones. 

I remain. Sir, your most obedient 
servant 

CHRISTOPHER CRABBIE,

From the Chairman of The “Not 
Forgotten’ 1 Association 
Sir, This organisation exists to 
provide extra comforts for war- 
disabled ex-Service men and 
women, who number 7,867 from 
the First War and 212,389 from 
later campaigns. 

To ihe Armed Forces of the 
Grown white denotes surrender. 

In our opinion there is no “space 
for red and white (poppies) to 
bloom side by side”, as the Bishop 
of Salisbury suggests (report 
October 29). 

It is difficult to imagine a greater 
insult to that gallant band who 
suffer today and every day of their 
lives as a result of their sacrifice to 
preserve the peace. 

Youzs faithfully,

A barred game 

From Mr Victor Hext 
Sir, Recently visiting the saloon 
bar of a country public house, my 
son and L having a pack of cards 
with us, thought we might the 
more pleasantly pass the time in a 
friendly partie of piquet. 

Imagine our surprise and cha- 
grin, followed by resentment, 
when we were requested either to 
discontinue our activities or to 
repair to the public tar. 

Can your readers reveal any 
other examples of inverted social 
discrimination in sport?

Anglo-Irish pact 

From Mr William McDowell 
Sir, The implications of 
Thursday's question-time ex- 
changes (Parliamentary report, 
October 24) are quite alarming. 
The Secretary of State for North- 
ern Ireland said that there can be 
no “overnight or instant' 
improvement” in the- security 
situation. 

On September 20 Mr King said 
he was impatient to see fester , 
progress on border security. All 
right-thinking people share his 
concern to see improvement on 
frontier security and all intelligent 
people recognize that there are no 
overnight solutions. However, it is 
now nearly a year since the signing 
of the Anglo-Irish Agreement and 
there is no evidence whatsoever 
that the frontier is playing a 
diminishing role in republican 
terrorist activity. Indeed, if there 
is a discernible trend it is that the 
IRA is exploiting the border rather 
more frequently in its operations 
than previously. .

Tasks to challenge scientists 


From Mr Andrew Ross 
Sir, In saying in your leader 
(October 24) that this Govern- 
ment has no clear set of scientific 
themes to attract the attention of 
the electorate and the support of 
the taxpayer you may be dis- 
regarding the scientific and 
commercial prizes offered by the 
espousal of conservation politics 
and ihe green vote: 

Conservation might conve- 
niently be regarded as a new 
technology-bawd industry — and 
one m which the UK excels. Seen 
in this light. much«more financial 
support for scientific programmes 
could be available if the scientific 
community explained the eco- 
nomic arguments for conservation 
rather better. 

The challenges range from land 
use in agriculture and forestry 
worldwide to new crop develop- 
ment using genetic manipulation 
and research into acid rain and 
energy economics, to nam e but a 
few. Ln basic botany, one of the - 
most neglected areas of science. 

- the scientific problems in describ- 
ing the nature of the world's plant] 
genetic resources have a huge 
practical and economic signifi- 
cance — even as the very habitats 
in which botanists work are being 
destroyed. 

These great social and scientific 
problems require political and 
technical skills that society ap- 
pears willing to pay for. The 
politicians themselves are 
cultivating that son of voter and 
taxpayer. So why doesn't the 
scientific community respond? 

The economic benefit to the UK 
in thinking of conservation as a 
new industry may lie both in 
Nobel prizes and in real export 
earnings from a world needing the 
right answers to environmental 
problems. 

Yours faithfully, 

ANDREW ROSS.

October 26. 

From Sir Alec Merrison, FRS 
Sir, The issues addressed by your 
leader, “Science and society” 
(October 24), are those which have 
been exercising the minds of 
scientific administrators — and I 
was. at one time, one of their 
number - during the whole of my 
professional career. 

1 have not yet read the report by 
the Advisory Board for the Re- 
search Councils to which you refer 
but, knowing the people who will 
have been responsible for it, I 
know that it win be an honest and 
dear, and depressing account of a 
situation which gets steadily worse 
and which will, in the end, cripple 
us as a nation. And, I suspect like 
the present chairman of the 
ABRC, I simply do not know how 
one is to convince our political 
masters of the blindingly obvious. 
You write too. Sir, of the 

Grand Prix failings 

From Lord Killeam 
Sir, The dramatic Mure of two 
leading cars in the last few laps of 
the Grand Prix race m Adelaide 
(report, October 27) prompts me 
to ask why such races cannot be 
organized in a way that allows a 
driver (and his team) to prepare 
and present his car for optimum 
performance (Le^ driven at maxi- 
mum safe speed) on the day, with 
no need for a pit stop? 

One is led to believe that many 
such Grand Prix races are set over 
a course which cannot possibly be 
completed at racing speed on one 
tankful of petrol; and evidently, at 
Adelaide, all those who finished 
the course in leading positions had 
found it necessary to change tyres 
en route. 

Interesting though it may be to 
see a pit crew cany out a change of 
tyres and/or complete a refuel in 
under eight seconds, this particu- 
lar ability is no part of the test of 
the car and its equipment which is 
the object of all motor racing. 

Yours faithfully, 

KILLEARN, 

House of Lords. 

Hospital watchdogs 

From Mr L. V. Wood 
Sir. In the past 12 months the 
North Wales Hospital has been 
visited by the Health Advisory 
Service (twice), the Mental Health 
Act Commission (three times) and 
the Community Health Council 
(five times). In addition, our panel 
of health authority members is 
here, on average, three times a 
month. 

We have also been looked at by 
environmental health officers 
from the local authority and the 
fire officer and are about to be 
inspected by a professional 

acceptance and enthusiasm 
among the majority community 
for the Agreement Doubtless the 
IRA’s continued use of the fron- 
tier to maim, kin and destroy is 
one reason for the Loyalist 
comm unity being so unenthusias- 
tic. Another is the failure of . the 
republic to ratify the European 
Convention on the Suppression of 
Terrorism. 

The feet that articles 2 and 3 of 
the republic's Constitution do not 
.even seem to figure on the agenda 
of possible reforms/benefits from 
the Agreement leads me to con- 
clude that the Agreement will 
never prove acceptable to major- 
ity feeling- in the province. Is 1 the 
Government . therefore deter- 
mined to rule Northern Ireland 
indefinitely by the democratically- 
rejected method of the Inter- 
governmental Conference? 
Certainly the. people of the prov- 
ince will not accept government in 
ihe absence of consent indefi- 
nitely. 

I remaip. Sir,, your obedient 
servant

insufficient efforts which sci- 
entists themselves have made to 
pull down the great wall of 
incomprehension which separates 
them from the public - mea culpa, 
mea culpa. 

The task of the scientist in this 
respect is made easier if the 
audience he addresses has some 
general background knowledge of 
science and some basic in 
mathematics. And in this, because 
of the insouciant attitude of 
successive governments to the 
problem of getting science teach- 
ers into schools, we shall, before 
very long, have reduced such an 
educated audience to negligible 
proportions. 

Can nothing be done? Of course 
it can - it simply requires the will 
and the money. 

Yours sincerely.

Lure of Einstein 

From Dr M.P. Melrose 
Sir. In the correspondence follow- 
ing the recent article about Ein- 
stein (October IS), two of your 
correspondents have referred to 
Heisenberg’s principle of in- 
determinacy in ways which 
perpetuate a popular misconcep- 
tion. First, Dr Wilski (October 20) 
praises the principle for enforcing 
some humility on theoretical 
physics; and then David Brain 
(October 24) quoted Bronowski, 
who called indeterminism “the 
principle of toleration”. 

Properly understood, 
Heisenberg’s principle is neither a 
humble nor tolerant statement. 
For it says not only that position 
and the momentum of a particle 
cannot be measured simulta- 
neously with perfect precision, but 
also that these imprecisions in 
momentum and position exist 
even in a complete description of 
the particle, prior to measure- 
ment. 

Thus the principle does not just 
say what cannot be measured: it 
also pronounces on what there is 
to measure. 1 should have thought 
that the claim to completeness 
would place the Heisenberg prin- 
ciple firmly in the spmt of 
theoretical physics of which Dr 
Wilski disapproves. 

Completeness is an arrogant 
claim, but a very fertile propo- 
sition. By not hedging its bets 
about the nature of the world, 
science provides us with clear 
ideas to criticise, and perhaps to 
falsify. 

Yours.

Whilst I would join in the

it would surely be better to 
concentrate on making sense of 
the present inspection arrange-

another watchdog body to this 
formidable list. 

Incidentally, in practice there is 
already little option but to comply

Molotov cocktail 

From Mr M. F. Cullis 
Sir, In his sympathetic notice 
(October 23) of the BBC 1 film 
about the Hungarian revolt of 30 
years ago, Martin Cropper speaks 
of the use by students and workers 
of Budapest of petrol bombs 
"known as Molotov cocktails — 
against its inventors” - meaning, 
evidently,' the Russians. 

The Molotov cocktail was in 
feet so named, and first used, by 
the Finns against the Soviet 
invaders in the winter war of 
1939-40.

Free, but chained 

From Dr Christopher Clapham 
Sir, A propos of Professor 
Minogue's discussion of Marxism 
and academic freedom in The 
Times today (October 24) you 
may be interested in the solution 
to the problem embodied in article 
3 (“Academic Freedom”) of the 
Duties. Code of Conduct and 
Disciplinary Regulations of Aca- 
demic Staff at Addis Ababa 
Univetsity-'(May, 1985): 

L Any Academic StaffMember shall ‘ 
have the freedom and duty to 
discharge bis or her teaching or 
research activities so that ' 

(a) his/her contacts with students for 
teaching purposes may always pro- 
mote and permit an atmosphere of 
free, rational and dispassionate in- 
quiry with respect to issues relevant 
to the subject matter of the course, 
by including, where he/she deems it 
necessary, a discussion of controver- 
sial issues and the presentation of- 
particular views thereon, without, 
however, forcing the assumption 
that these issues are settled in 
advance: 

(b) his/her research methodology 
and findings always promote and 
permit an atmosphere of free, ratio- 
nal and dispassionate inquiry and 
findings with respect to issues 
relevant to the subject matter of the 
research. 


THE TIMES 
ON THIS DAY 


OCTOBER 31 1974 

This victory in Zaire, formerly' the 
Congo, re-established Muhammad 
Ah as u orld champion after his 
defeat by Joe Frasier. He lost the 
title in 1978 briefly to Leon 
Spinks, but regained it the same 
year. In 1990. he tost badly to 

Larry Holmes, and has not 
challenged since 


Double your 
money or I 
quit, Ali tells 
promoters 

Prom Neil Allen 
Boxing Correspondent 
Kinshasa. Oct 30 
O, we of little faith who ignored 
the strength of Allah. Even Mn 
Belinda Muhammad All, a devout 
Black Muslim, admitted to me that 
she never thought her husband 
would win back the world heavy- 
weight title in the way be did — by 
a clean knock-out of George Fore- 
man in the eighth roviwi- 

Standing cool and tall in her long 
white gown in the midst of Alfa 
besieged dressing-room, aha said: 
“I thought a decision on points was 
possible for him but not a knock- 
out. The way he finished with that 
right hand reminds many people of 
his first knock-out of Liston so 
long ago. We are aQ children of 
Allah and he sent his strength to 
my husband once again.” 

Of course she would tike the 32- 
year-old champion to retire, but 
she smiled a little wearily at the 
realization that her decision would 
never be the vital one. Ten minutes 
later, enthroned in a chair placed 
on a massage table, Ali told us: “I 
want to haunt the boxing world for 
probably another six months and 
have my name as champion in the 
Ring magazine and let all the 
boxers, scholars and critics look at 
it. If Elijah Muhanunad permits 
me, I want to go right into the 
Muslim ministry and teach and 
preach. 

“Joe Frazier would have given 
me a harder fight than George 
Foreman. Frazier is harder to hit, 
more relentless, more dangerous in 
dose. They got to get me in dose. 
They got to get me $10 milhoo 
before I’D even think about fighting 
Frazier. If not HI take my belt back 
to my four children and my religion 
awl enjoy all my glory find feme.” 
Ali and Foreman each received $5 
million (£2,175,000) this morning. 

So the good news for boxing is 
that the once and future king win 
be with us for a while as all the 
world marvels at his resilience and 
courage- As dawn came up over the 
stadium today, we knew that if we 
had notseen a great match— it was 
really too one-sided for that — we 
had witnessed a classic MU which 
even the lions 14 ) country might 
envy. The final left and right 
punches, as Ali came springing out 
of a comer, sent Foreman spinning 
round and down, flat on his back, 
where he lay, head jerking up like a 
dying animal, and then sprawling 
on to handand knees as the referee, 
Zack Clayton, spread his arms 
wide. 

Ali leaped in triumph and then 
fell, pushed by a mob invading the 
ring before he sat on his haunches 
while pandemonium raged above 
him. H e hnat e d troops beat back 
the crowd with their batons and 
finally Ali was able to raise his 
hands to the night sky and urge 
60,000 onlookers to cry “Ali, boom 
a yea” . . . literally “AH, Mil him”. 
Foreman, his right eye swollen and 
blood trickling from bis nose and 
mouth, sat hunc h ed in his corner, a 
bemused and broken man. 

Afterwards Foreman was asked 
why his hands had dropped after 
the tingling first round in which he 
had three times been caught by 
right hands to the jaw from Ali. 
Trying, unconvincingly, to say that 

he had “controlled” the bout from 
the start, Foreman stumbled and 
stopped. “Please just ask the 
standard questions,” he pleaded. 
'Til tell you all about it when I get 
home." 

Angelo Dundee, Ali’s chief train- 
er, reminded mg “I said my man 
would stop him between rounds 
nine and 11, bo it came a little 
early. We knew we had to get inside 
those big swings of Foreman’s. If 
you stay outside you're doomed. 
But my man was fester, he looked 
taller, and you know, he actually 
looked younger. He was stronger, 
he was fester on the ropes, and he 
didn't need to tun or dance.” 

There was in feet little dancing 
by Ali because he learned in that 
opening round, that he could beat 
the lethargic Foreman to the 
punch, and. apart from a worrying 
passage in the fifth, the only round 
I thought Ali lost, he was never 
really hurt by his opponent's 
cumbersome blows . ■ ■ 

2. The foregoing freedom and duty 
may not. however, be exercised to 
the detriment of the propagation of 
scientific truths, findings and meth- 
odologies of research already accu- 
mulated in accordance with 

Marxism-Leninism.

Ford to update Granada engines 


Conjecture about the introduction of 
a much-needed new engine for Ford's 
Granada range has reached such 
proportions that the company this week 
' decided to put the record straight — a 
new V6 will appear “early next year". 
There will be two sizes initially, a 130 
bbp 2.4 litre and a 150 bhp 2.9, both 
with Bosch fuel injection. 

The 2.4 will go into Granada CL and 
Gfaia models while the 2.9 will be 
reserved for Granada Ghia, Scorpio and 
Scorpio Executive models in both two 
and four-wheel drive forms. Prices will 
be announced larer. 

Despite modification work carried 
out on the old 2.8 V6 for the launch of 
the new Granada range last year, it has 
looked increasingly dated. It was, in 
fed, designed over 20 years ago when 
short stroke engines giving high revs 
and top-end power were in vogue. 
Today the trend is very much towards 
fuel saving, lean burn, long stroke 
engines with plenty of bottom end 
torque and improved pulling power for 
overtaking. 

The 2.4 fills a yawning gap in the 
range between the existing two litre, 
four cylinder, and six cylinder Z 8. Ford 
quote performance figures which sug- 
gest it could become one of the biggest 
selling middle management cars with a 
top speed of 121 mph and a 0 to 60 mph 
tune of 9.3 seconds. The comparable 


figures for the new 2.9 are 129 mph and 
8.5 seconds. 

_But much will depend on the manner 
in which they perform rather than the 
actual figures. The old engine was 
neither smooth nor quiet, u pushed 
hard, it became laboured and “thrashy”- 
Tbe target engine remains the turbine- 
like “straight six" BMW unit. There 
have been many attempts lo match its 
unique combination of power and 
smoothness but no one has yet suc- 
ceeded. 

Ford's attempt is based on a much- 
reinforced cylinder block. It is 30 per 
cent suffer yet no heavier and has been 
developed using sophisticated vibration 
analysis techniques. 

Both versions will run on the planned 
new Euronorm 95 octane lead-free 
petrol with a minor ajustmeni to the 
ignition timing . 

Cleaner diesel 

The oil companies appear at last lo be 
getting their act together on the supply 
of diesel fuel for the car driver. 

Until recently, diesel cars were in 
such .small numbers that their custom 
was hardly worth winning- However, it 
is highly possible that the British 
motorist's resistance to diesel has much 
to do with diesel's off-hand treatment 
by forecourt personnel. 

Alt now, diesel sales are rising 


annually. Sfadl. 

claims to be setting the paw lojjoo 
diesel drivers. It has used market 
research to discover what most 
have known for years: that diesel u«ra 
feel poorly treated In comparKonj*' 1 ™ 
SolSwmeR, that diesel fi*l £ 
£5^, smelly and unless ^great 
taken to fill slowly, will "tom over-, 
soiling hands, clothes . fh _ 

Itwas this foaming problem andtbc 
feet that 95 per cent of diesds sofo w^t 
into trucks which led to d^elpmnps 
being sited in the 

sheltered canopy of the petrol forecourt 

Now they are being moved 
canopy and precautions taken to reduce 
foaming and smelly hands. An an 
foam additive has been. 
which is said to reduce filling nine by a 
quarter. At the same tune, pumfs me 
being fitted with large splash guards. 
Additional protection comes in urc 
form of ftee disposable .plastic goves 
obtained from dispensing machines 
alongside the pump. . . 

Not to be outdone. Mobil is pushmg 
the merits of its new Diesel Plus. The 
nus 9 degrees C wax crystals form, 
Uockzngmel lines and fillets. We have 
all seen the frightening fires ut by 
track drivers to free blocked 
pipes. Mobil insist that its new Diesel 
Plus will prevent waxing down to minus 
15 degrees C

It got that all right with the

also served to pinpoint another 
gap in the range. The XT is 
really a two seater sports car 
with room in the rear for two 
very small people indeed. At 
£12^99 for the five-speed 

manual and £13£98 for the 

automatic, it is also set-

firiently over the £10^60 to

many company and pro- 
fesshmal buyers. 

International Motors, the 
Wert Bromwich-based group 
which controls Sahara dis- 
tribution in Britam, recently 
dosed that gap with the lit 
three-door tmbo coopt, a foil 
fom seater costing £2^00 less 
than the XT and powered by 
the same turbo-charged fiat 
four engine. With its sharply 
raked windscreen and very 
large glass hatchback, the 
newcomer is also, la my view, a 
more attractive car than the 
rather flash XT. 

In normally aspirated form, 
the li alloy engine, which 
powers all the Snbara range, is 
rather a plodder with its 
distinctive “boxer” throb. The 
introduction of a torfao charger 
and HHdti-pofltt fuel fojectMM 
has converted it into a 134 bhp 
flyer with very pleasing 
“punch in the back” accelera- 
tion.

Sahara has its critics. They 
argue that it wastes much too

PUDUC auwu afiwm * ir ’ 
and who later became the first 

woman to serve in a German 
cabinet, died on October 29. 
She was 85. . 

She was born m Frankfurt 
on January 7, 1901. She 
studied law in Frankfurt and 
Bari m, and was admitted to 
the Bar in 1920. During the 
last years of die Weimar 
Republic she was politically 
active, while also serving as a 
junior judge. In 1932, while 
sitting at Frankfurt and Dort- 
mund, she criticized Hitler's 
attitude towards women in a. 
newspaper article, and de- 
fended her views before a Nazi 

crowd. 

Soon after the Nazis came 
to power she was forced to 

resign, and during the years of 

the Third Reich she spent her 
time doing social and legal 
advisory work within the Lu- 
theran Church. 

After the war she joined the 
Christian Democratic Union, 
and was elected to the Federal 
Parliament in 1952. She was 
assiduous in committee work 
and spoke often, more espe- 
cially on matters concerning 
women. As a member of 


W^TGeSuan divorce law in 
i960 

In 1962 she was appointed 
Minister of Pnbhc I Ketith in 
Konrad Adenauer's fourth 
cabinet. Though women had 
sat in parliament under the 
WeimarRepuWic, and in. the 
West German Bundestag since 
the revival of German dfitjoc- 
racy, none before had held 1 
cabinet office. 

As minister she promoted a 
number of laws relating to 
medicine and food hygiene. 
Her principal monument was 
the Food Code that she intro- 
duced to raise the standards of 
shops and shoppers. At the 
gamp time she expanded rood 
advisory services. . 

A handsome woman with a 
disarming smile, she was al- 
ways at her desk at an early 
hour reading documents and 
newspapers before her assis- 
tant arrived. She had the 
reputation of a politician 
whose charm and intelligence 
were combined with a neces- 
sary toughness. v 

Until her later years she was 
a keen mountain climber and. 
skier. She was unmarried.

Tebbit 
lambasts 
BBC for 
report 

Con tinned from page 1 
named many comments 
which most upset the Tory 
party are shown through 
examination of the full 
transcipt to be hers, particu- 
larly her last words: “We’ve 
had no word from him (Col 
Gadaffi) about the death of his 
daughter - she's already been 
buried,” 

In the report of the revenge 
killing two days later the BBC 
was accused of using language 
likely to alarm the audience 
and to suggest that the Gov- 
ernment had put the nation in 
danger. The broadcast's open- 
ing words: “Good evening. | 
Britain is paying the price for j 
supporting America’s attack: 
on Libya” was “an inexcus- 
able departure from straight- 
forward news coverage.” 

The dossier states: “It was 
not an attempt to provide 
news but to prey on people’s 
emotions and fears in a fash- 
ion which should find no ■ 
home in any respectable 
broadcasting operation.” 

The studv concludes: “BBC j 
coverage of these events reprc- 
sen ted a serious and signifi- j 
cant failure to achieve 
professional news coverage 
which can only serve to under- j 
mine the principles of public ; 
service broadcasting ...The 
BBC did not offer objective 
evidence so much as a highly- 
flavoured editorial view. 

“ It prompts charges of 
professional incompetence or, 
even worse, prejudice. This 
could be held to have arisen 
either through bias or incom- 
petence. 

Mr Tebbit’s dossier was 
reported to a meeting of the 
BBC board of governors yes- 
terday. The corporation 
promised a response after 
careful corporation. 

Meanwhile BBC journalists i 
involved in the bulletins 
maintained that their reports j 
were fair and unbiased.

By Nicholas Beeston 

Britain and Syria are expected to 
reach an agreement to establish interest 
sections in each other's capitals when 
their embassies are closed officially at 
the end of this week. 

The British Ambassador to Damas- 
cus, Mr Roger Tomkys, and his Syrian 
counterpart, Dr Loutonf Allah Haydar, 
are expected to return home today. 

But British and Syrian officials 
predict that at least two diplomatic 
representatives and one administrative 
official from both countries will be 
allowed to maint ain interest sections 
under the auspices of another embassy. 

The British wall operate under the 
Australian flag in Damascus, and Syria 


wiD be given reciprocal privileges with 
the Lebanese mission In London. 

• DAMASCUS: A first contingent of 
six or seven British diplomats left 
Damascus yesterday for Jordan, on 
their way home after last week’s break 
in relations, diplomatic sources said 
(Renter reports). 

Mr Tomkys and the rest of his team 
of 19 diplomats were due to fly home to- 
day. Syrian officials said tint. Dr 
Haydar and his staff were expected 
back in Damascus, also today. 

Britain broke diplomatic ties with 
Damascus after Syrian diplomats were 
implicated in court testimony about an 
attempt by Nezar Hindawi to blow np 
an Israeli airliner last ApriL 


Gorbachov in ms attempts to 
break foe rigid mould of 
Soviet thinking , a small 
group of Western journalists 
was recently invited to foe 
factory under the auspices of 
the Foreign Ministry (which

any. other wing of the 
Government). 

Although its stock-in-trade 
varies from silk-screened 
icons and burial shawls to 
replica mitres and ornate 
golden weddiqg crowns, the 
self-styled “workshop” is ran 
along strict Communist Party 
lines, with a monthly target to 

fulfil as part of the five-year 
Soviet {dan.

As we toured the factory 
(which has its private chapel, 

as did great Russian bouses in 

the time of foe tsars), foem 
was only the occasional re- 
minder of modem Soviet 
reality „ 

AH the officials stoically 
sidestepped questions which 
might have pointed to foe 
number of members of foe 
church, or even foe number 
of working churches, it was 
explained that most of foe 
workers — some of whom 
could be seen incongruously 
crossing themselves — were 
believers, although this was 
not a condition of employ- 
ment. 

Their wages, almost twice 
the national average, and foe 
heaving tables of caviar, sau- 
sage »nd . fresh fruit in the 
guest refectory, bore witness 
to foe continuing affluence Of 
the Orthodox Church. Tact- 
fully, all mention of the 
current religious revival was 
avoided, but Archpriest Leo- 
nid Kuzminov could, not 
resist a broad grin when 
asked how many crosses were 
bong produced. “As you can 
see, there is no unemploy- 
ment,” be replied.

The forecast of “approxi-

The stock market was 
awash with speculation yes- 
terday as the Stock Fxrhangg 
called an emergency meeting 
to discuss the problems posed 
by the new dealing systems 
since Monday. 

Representatives of all mem- 
ber firms were invited to Iasi 
night’s meeting called to dis- 
cuss ways of overcoming the 
difficulties which have 
plagued the screen- dealing 
markets. 

There were widespread 
“stories" that one measure 
being considered by the ex- 
change is the complete closure 
of equity trading in London 
for two days to allow time to 
sort out a huge backlog of 
unde settlements. 

Several market-makers 
have run into problems with 
their settlement systems. It is 
suggested that there is a 
backlog of more than 50,000 
deals at one market-making 
firm. 

The exchange’s Topic 
screen system held up yes- 
terday, but the Extel informa- 
tion service had been cut out 
to reduce demand on the 
network. Other services, 
including a page showing the 
prices of the 30 most actively 
traded stocks, have also been 
reduced. 

The exchangrissucd a no- 
tice to all institutions which 
provide information to Topic 
that they were only free to do 
so only between 6am and 8am 
and 6pm to 9pm. 

Because of difficulty in 
extracting information from 
the Topic the Financial Times 
was late in eafeniaring the 30- 
share index yesterday 
morning. 

Users of Topic were 
complaining bitterly yesterday 
that the two-tier priority sys- 
tem for company news was in 
danger of leading to charges of 


insider trading; 

Market-makers now tend to 
receive company news about 
20 minutes before other Topic 
subscribers. They also receive 
a version of news which is 
being abbreviated for other 
users to reduce the number of 
pages needed. 

This means that market-

informed when companies 
make announcements which 
could move share prices.

New York (Renter) - Share 
prices staged ahead in early 
trading yesterday spurred by 
figures showing a decline in 
the September merchandise

The replacement of Sheikh 
Yamani, the Saadi Arabian oil 
minister, created some un- 


certainty in the oil market.00 
prices first fell and then 

jumped ahead.

The third quarter message 
from ICI was in many re- 
spects a familiar one but was 
also shot through with 
Optimism. 

On the negative ride, en- 
ergy and agriculture were still 
disaster areas. Industrial de- 
mand was generally flat and 
volume growth was confined 
■to North America, the Far 
East and Australia. 

But on the positive side, 
the traditionally weak third 
quarter was stronger, so the 
non-energy and non-agri- 
culture businesses put in very 
good performances. 

Oil-related businesses saw 
a further recovery of profit 
margins, aided by the lower 
oil price. Stock losses result- 
ing from lower oil prices were 
all taken up in the first-half. 

A pick-up in consumer 
demand was also noted. 
Paints did well; dye-stuffs 
benefited from the fashion 
trade's demand for bright 
colours; polyurethane vol- 
ume was strong in America as 
demand picked up in the 
construction industry; fibres 
showed signs of rising de- 
mand in carpet manufac- 
turing and pharmaceuticals 
were ahead 

Currencies, particularly the 
stronger mark, provided half 
the third quarter profits 
improvement and will con- 
tinue to act as a boost in the 
fourth quarter. The commod- 
ity business, which will bene- 
fit more from the higher 
mark, is seasonally stronger 
in the final quarter. 

The cost of changes in the 
distribution system for the 
weed-biller paraquat, esti- 
mated at up to £10 million in 
the third quarter, will not 
feature in the final quarter. In 
addition, fourth quarter fig- 
ures will benefit from a first- 
time contribution from Glid- 
den. the American paints 
company acquired from Han- 
son Trust 


Full-year profits of £1,020 
million this year and £ 1,300 
million next would put the 
shares on multiples of 11.3 
and 93 respectively. The 
shares are still at a 20 per cent 
discount to the industrial 
market and therefore have 
further to go. 


Harris 


Sales of three-piece suites, 
beds and fitted carpets have 
languished despite the con- 
sumer spending boom of the 
last six months. Electrical 
appliances, cars and leisure 
are what people want to 
spend money on. 

Sir Phili p Hams, chairman 

of Hams Queensway, puts 
much of the blame cm the 
manufacturers, but accepts 
retailers should be doing 
more to identify fashion 
trends and stock goods con- 


sumers want to buy. 

The company's first moves 
into giving customers what 
they want have proved 
successful but have oome too 
(ate to influence first-half 
results. Stripping out prop- 
erty, the year-on-year gain in 
pretax profit was 9 per cent, 
on turnover up 21 per cent to 
£233 million. 

The outlook for the second 
half is much rosier. The 


group caused a stir this 
month by announcing a S3I7 
million (£225 million) ac- 
quisition in the United States 
and a £181 million one-for- 
four rights issue. 

However, after a field trip 
to the US, British analysts are 
taking another look at 
Redland. Fired with their 
enthusiasm, the price rose 2 
per cent yesterday to 390p. 

Although pretax profits 
were 10 per cent ahead, 
earnings per share, rightly 
considered by Redland to be 
more important, rose 16 per 
cent 

Bearing witness to the 
much-vaunted geographical 
spread of the business, the 
increase in profits from Brit- 
ish and overseas subsidiaries 
compensated for the poor 
performance of the asso- 
ciates. 

In Britain, the outlook is 
good. Brick and roofing tiles 
are continuing to benefit 
from housing demand. 

For once, currency move- 
ments worked to Redfand's 
advantage. Profits from Braas 
in West Germany were down 
in marks, but ahead on 
translation. Next year should 
see an improvement as hous- 


ing permits are picking up. 

In the US, Redland Worth 
was 25 per cent ahead. The 
benefit of new plant has still 


group is forecasting turnover 
for the year of £630 million 
and pretax profit could reach 
£50 million. 

This puts the shares on a 
prospective multiple of a 
little more than 12, leaving 
them at a substantial, but 
undeserved, discount to the 
sector. 


not been enjoyed. 

Genstar will come into the 
fold in November. Its year 
end is December so it wili 
have a negligible impact this 
year. 

The black spot next year 
will be Australia where the 
economic downturn is mak- 
ing itself felt. 

Profits of £125 million are 
likely for the year to next 
March (earnings per share 
34p) while £164 million 
(earnings per share 38p) is in 
prospect for 1987-88. 

The shares represent ex- 
cellent value for money.

being thoroughly predictable,

1986 Results 


Extracts from the 
Statement b y the Chairman, 
Paul Girolami. 


“This year s results are the latest in 
3n unbroken sequence of rapid growth 
over the six years since 1979/SO. That 
growth is the direct outcome of the 
strategy pursued by the Group in recent 
years, and of four policies in particular, 
namely: a concentration of resources and 
effort on medicines of the highest quality 
and benefit to society; the world-wide 
extension of our activities and markets; 
the expansion and improvement of our 
research, development and technological 
resources as the base for the successful 
pursuit of these goals; and the creation 
of a flexible international organisation 
capable of adapting itself to meet the 
changing and complex needs of our 
world-wide business. These policies 
have operated to change, fundamentally, 
the size and character of the Group in the 
space of a few years. 

“Our concentration on prescription 
medicines. Together with a commitment 
to generate growth from internal sources, 
has enabled us to devote resources and 
management effort to the development 
of our mainstream business not only of a 
high quality but also with a potential for 
high growth. It has, in conjunction with 
our ocher policies, led to very large 
increases in profits and earnings. This 
year, profits before tax were nine times 


higher than in 1979/SO; earnings per 
share at 54- lp were also nine times 
higher; and the share price at the end of 
June this year at £10.25 was eighteen 
times higher than the corresponding 
price at the beginning of the decade. 

“The successful penetration of major 
international markets has been the 
driving force behind the recent growth, 
with its widespread and profound effects 
on the Group. For example, our 
company in the U-S. A. recorded a 
turnover of $620 million, an increase 
of 74% over last year. 

“Our biggest research eftort by far, is 
in the U.K.; but we are also rapidly 
expanding our basic research activity in 
Italy as well as the new unit set up this 
year in the U.S. A. We now have major 
programmes in the areas of anti- 
infecrives and cardiovascular, central 
nervous and respiratory systems, as well 
as in the areas of allergy, skin biology.

“The Group now sells its products in 
one hundred and fifty countries through 
a network of seventy subsidiary' and 
associated companies which have some 
31,000 employees, about 11,000 in the 
U.K. and over 20,000 overseas. 

“Our progress in the past has relied 
fundamentally on the discovery 7 of new 
products by our Research organisation 
and, when found, their efficient 
development, manufacture and sale 
throughout the world. 

“The interval of time between 
discovery- of a compound and the 
marketing of the product is inevitably 
long, normally ten years, and is 
increasing. Our policies have, 
therefore, to be framed, and judged, 
on a relatively long time scale. They 
must deal effectively with the complex 
series of operations and decisions of 
great difficulty which are involved in 
the long process between discovery 
and sale if rhe highest standards of 
performance are to be met and the full 
potential of the products is to be 
realised. This was true in the past and 
remains true today. The Group's 
progress still rests on the foundations 
of the four policies which have so 
successfully met our requirements. 
They remain, therefore, the policies 
your Group is pursuing and should, I 
feel, keep ic moving strongly in the 
right direction in die future.”

End of old 
pension 
scheme 
consensus 

Time was when honest nnrf 
upright companies regarded 
then- pension funds as sacred, 
to be funded, guaranteed, but 
hermetically s caled from the 
finance directors efforts to 
squeeze as much cash 
possible from the business. 
Employees shared this view, 

regarding their savins in die 

Mmpany fund as thetrs, even 
though the employer, as ni- 
trate guarantor, had controL 
Times have changed. The 

iw.' i , • *Tt Tr i 


foiced employers to nay in 

extra contributions, i 

liged finance directore to see 
their pension funds in a new 
light: as variable and control- 
lable costs of businesses. 

As high interest rates and 
later the booming share mar- 
ket produced big surpluses;, 
corporate raiders — and any- 
one who wanted to escape 
their clutches — came to view 
the pension fund as part of the 
usable financial resources of 
the company, allowing con- 
tribution holidays and even 
withdrawals. 

As this cazne to the notice of 
the Inland Revenue, the 
taxmen spotted a loophole 
and demanded that undue 
surpluses be used to increase 
benefits, reduce cont rib utions 
or make taxed withdrawals. 

Lord Hanson is not the first 
to see pension funds in this 
new fight Mr Robert Maxwell 
used the Mirror Group News- 
papers fund surplus to agree 
staff cuts through early 
retirement. 

But Lord Hanson represents 
a breed of corporate dealers of 
whom employees are natu- 
rally suspicious and whose 
ethos is at odds with the long- 
term m oiual commitment and 
trust implicit in the idea of 
company pension schemes 
based In final salary. 

AM a surplus, which has 
been bnih up by the pension 
scheme of a company that has 
been taken over, seems to 
have little to do with die 
company’s new owners. 

The world of trust in which 
company pension schemes 


developed has broken down 
and we are now inevitably 
seeing the results. Yet public 
policy, while admitting per- 
sonal pensions, still regards 
company final-salary schemes 


as a desirable norm. Further 
change is inevitable. 

Pressure from employees 
has now persuaded Lord Han- 
son to think again about 
.Splitting the Courage pension, 
fund in a way that appeared to 
leave him in control of all its : 
surplus. But there is no ques- 
tion of going bade to square 
one. The new Inland Revenue 
rules ensure that surpluses of 
more than 5 per cent of 
actuarial liabilities are dis- 
sipated in some way. 

Several big groups have 
already decided to split them 
between greater benefits and 
company contribution holi- 
days. What is now needed are 
some general guidelines for 
distributing these surpluses 
equitably between sharehold- 
ers and nind members. Other- 
wise, market plea su res will 
force companies to take the

STOCK MARKET REPORT 


Brierley raises his S&N 
brewery holding to 4% 


By Michael Clark 
and Carol Leonard 

Mr Ron Briedey, the New 
Zealand-born businessman, 
has lifted his stake in Scottish 
& Newcastle, the Edinburgh- 
based brewer, to at least 4 per 
cent 

On Monday a share-register 
check by the company re- 
vealed a number of iwnwnw . 
holdings totalling 23 per cent 
of the equity. But by yesterday 
the stake had been increased 
to 3. 97 per cent and talk in the 
market was that he was still 
buying, and could now speak 
for as much as 6 per cent — 
worth more than £35 million.

Why the tenor of Qpec meetings will change 

Exit the charismatic Yamani 

IP 


Take away the phalanx of 
bodyguards, each with an 
automatic handgun bulging 
under his designer T-shirt, the 
private yacht the size of a 
Royal Navy frigate and the 
200 members of the world 
press hanging on his every 
word, and Sheikh Ahmed Zala 
Yamani could have been just 
like any other father buying 
chocolate ice-cream for his 
chatteringyoungfan&y on foe 
promenade of Briom, the 
Yugoslavian holiday resort 
which used to be used exclu- 
sively by the late Resident 
Tito. 

Opec accepted foe Yugo- 
slavian Government's invita- 
tion to hold its summer 
session on the island and tire 
oil minis ters of foe 13 member 
nations were revetting In foe 

unaccustomed informality. 

However, the informality 
did not lead to any new 
realism within the various 
Opec fictions and the world 
oil price continued to languish 
at less than half the level it was 
at the start of this year. 

Two meetings later and foe 
ce is stiD in the doldrums, 

from Opec’s target range of 

$17 to $19, and Sheikh Y*- 
rnani, foe man to whom the 
market looked to force heads 
together and produce a work- 
able agreement to send up the 
price 
office. 

At those two 

Sheikh Yamani has played his 
usual pivotal role, bat the 
agreements which emerged to 
limit production were sugr 
gpytffd by Iran and did not 
have foe fuD support of the 
Saudi oil minister. He was 
adamant that a new scientific 
should emerge and 



1962 64 66 68 70 72 74 78 78 8012345 


price 

fir fie 


it his country should have a 
larger shar e of the market. 

It seems that for once he did 
not have foe full support of the 
Saudi ruling family back in 
Riyadh, who - issued - state- 
ments through the o ffici a l 
Saudi news agency which 


often contradicted . what 
Sheikh Yamani was saying in 
the lobbies m Geneva. 

It now appears that a 
co mbin a ti o n of his health — 
he has spent at least two of this 
year’s four meetings in his 
18th floor suite at the Geneva 
Internoonlinental Hotel under 
medical supervision — and foe 
e m erge n ce of new more force- 
ful voices within the Saudi 
Government has led to his 
removal from the rob. 

In addition, Sbakh Yamani 
haslet it be known during the 
last 18 months that he has 
become diriflosKmed with the 
political emphasis os Opec 
discussions. 

Also, he has been unpopular 
with some sectors of the Saudi 
Ailin g famil y because of Ins 
criticism of oil being used m 

barter trade deals for nrihtaiy 
equipment and aircraft as well 
as to raise cash, which has 

been used often to meet dowry 
and other personal costs by 
some members of foe Royal 
family. 

Whatever the manner ofhis 
going, his influence on Qpec 
as a whole has been consid- 
erable. He was the man who 
successfully spanned two cul- 
tures and was among the first 
of the group of technocrats to 
emerge from the Arab. Gulf 
and from the Universities of 
North America. 

He read law at Cairo 
University, then went on to 
Harvard and into foe Saudi 
government 

He was first appointed to 


pie who could still afford the 
large gas-guzriera were the 
Arabs who controlled the 
price of oil and, because of 
their patronage, many of the 
specialist car companies were 
able to remain in existence 


the cabinet in 1958 at the 
of 33 and in 1962 moved into 
the od ministry, tire most 
important job m foe Saudi 
government 

Hk negotiating ability made 
him foe highest placed com- 
moner in a land where there 
are no political parties and the 
government is appointed by 
tire king. 

His ability to create new 
contract terms instantly 
acceptable to the oil con- 
sumers and at tbe same time 
pushing up revalues for the 
producers was a factor in 
converting Opec from a loose 
amalgamation of the Mamie 
producers into a cohesive 
force which could influence 
every economy in the world — 
Russia’s bong no exception 
since it quickly adopted the 
Opec price for its oil export 
contracts. 

His name became known to 
every oil consumer, every 
motorist and every house- 
holder with oil beating in 1973 
when he was responsible for 
devising the plan to use Arab 
oil as a weapon in the war 
gainst Israel 

Because of him the whole 

motor industry had to change. 
Large and high prrfarmanrr 

cars haraww onsorial and his. 
actions played an important 
part in the Japanse motor 
industry earning a strangle- 
hold on the motor industries 
of foe United Stales and 
Europe with its small, more 
economic cars. 

Paradoxkally^he only peo- 


until technology provided a 
fire! efficient car. 

Despite his formal training 

Shwlrn Yamani has fllcn based 

many of fats decisions on 
adyrefrom rrfig o^ n ^ ^is 

one of 

London, who provide him 
with regular ch art s advising 
on foe best times for making 
important derations. 

He was advised, correctly, 
by an astrologer to take care m 
March 1975. That month Ire 
stood alongade Ring Faisal 
when the monarch was assas- 
sinated in Riyadh. 

Sheikh Yamani has since 
been acutely conscious ofhis 
personal security and that of 
his wife and five young chil- 
dren who occasionally 
accompanied him to Opec 
meetings. 

Bis safety has been en- 
trusted to a team of British- 
trained bodyguards whose 
movements among foe lob- 
bies of foe Geneva and Vienna 
Opec conference hotels often 
proved the most accurate 
indication of how discussions 
were going at the conference 
table. 

A bodyguard in casual 
dothes, relaxing over a beer 
was a sign that the meetings 
had a long way to go before 
agreement was reached. His 
appearance in smart suit at the 
cashiers desk settling his tail 
meant that the meeting was 
about to end, with or without 
an agreement. 

It win be at Geneva in 
December that Opec will have 
its first meeting for 23 years 
without its most charismatic 
figure.

COMMENT Kenneth Fleet 


P & O awaits all-clear 
on European Ferries 


The reputation of the Monopolies and 
Mergers Commission has fallen as its 
judgements have moved from the real 
world in which companies have to 
compete to a dosed arena where the 
personalities and prejudices of 
laywexs, academics and second-class 
businessmen have free play. The 
commission may, of course, begin to 
rescue its reputation with its latest 
report on whether P & O’s 20 percent 
shareholding in European Ferries 
constitutes or might constitute ma- 
terial influence. Or it might not 

The commission had a choice.* 
Either it could find that P &0 bad no 
material influence over European 
Ferries; or it has material influence 
but that this is not detrimental to 
European Ferries’ powers to compete 
in cross-Channel ferry services and 
thus not* against the national interest; 
or it has material influence and that 
this restricts of may restrict com- 
petition in a way that is against the na- 
tional interest 

If the commission has found in its 
report, which should now be on Paul 
Channon’s desk at the Department of 
Trade, that P & O’s stake is or may be 
against the national interest it has 
presumably recommended that P & O 
should be ordered to sell its 
shareholding. That would kill specula- 
tion that P & O will bid for European 
Ferries, a factor that has helped to 
sustain EFs now filtering share price. 

It is inconceivable (well, almost 
inconceivable) that the commission 
has concluded that P & O does not 
have a material influence over EF. Sir 
Jeffrey Sterling, chairman of P & O, is 
on tbe board and if his opinions have 
not carried considerable weight in the 
EF boardroom, most recently during 
and after the September coup which 
brought Geoffrey Parker to the top of 
the info in place of Ken Siddfo, then I 
am much deceived. 

The third possibility is a finding of 
material influence which, however, 
does not or may not operate against 
the national interest The immediate 
effect of such a finding is that a P & O 
bid for EF would be a racing certainty. 
If troth were told it makes sense for P 
& O to take over EF, bnt not at the 
fancy prices the market was dreaming 
about even a few months ago. EF 
shares have come down a long way 
from their high this year of 177p. 
Yesterday they stood at 116p, but 
even that might be a shade more than 
P & O might want to pay, if it were 
free to Md. EPs latest figures, 
especially as they relate to the • 
company's American property in- 
terests, bear modi closer analysis than 
they have received. Only if there were 
an auction would EFs price be likely 
to rise appreciably. 

Tbe other interesting question is 
what constitutes the national interest 
when it comes to cross-Channel 


ferries? If the Channel tunnel is built, 
do the free market thinkers, in 
Government and outside, really want 
there to be no substantial British- 
owned ferry company, preferring to 
leave tbe waterways and the ships to 
the Americans (Sealink), French, 
Dutch and Scandinavians? Or do they 
think it might make sense to have P & 
O build something formidable with 
EF? Certainly EF is not in a serious 
position to argue with the logic. 


Net surprise 


With only four hair-curling days 
gone since the Big Bang, several 
dealing conventions are already 
emerging which are probably here to 
stay. 

What has surprised dealers most is 
the huge volume of business coming 
through on a net basis, by-passing 
agency broking altogether. “The mar- 
ket seems to be seeing a surge in net 
pricing orders from the merchant 
banks,” remarked one startled mar- 
ket-maker. 

Last week some experts were 
predicting a 75-2S per cent split of 
business in favour of agency trading. 
In the event, the reverse may be true. 
There are even rumours that one 
conglomerate is offering its services 
free of commission. 

The spreads on equity prices are 
erratic so far. While some dealers 
claim there has been no change, some 
unusual deals were going through on 
Monday. A £4 million line of 
Sainsbury stock was turned around by 
Smith Newcoun on the floor of the 
Exchange at a 2p spread, considerably 
more than such a large line would 
have commanded last week. The 
spreads on prices quoted for the most 
actively traded stocks have clearly 
narrowed, though you might have to 
use a telephone to find out. 

As one dealer pointed out. the 
amounts quoted against the prices on 
Topic screens are often still very small 
— 1,000 shares bid and offered — and 
should therefore be taken with a pinch 
of salt 

In spite of continuing breakdowns 
dealers seem to be gaining confidence 
and quoting prices in larger amounts. 
Quotations for lines of 25,000 shares 
each way are more common than on 
Monday — a good sign for a screen- 
based market But with screens there 
will always be scope to play games. 
The telephone will remain the dealing 
tool of last resort until a fully 
interactive screen market is developed 
in two years. 

In spite of the technical faults, there 
is no doubt that most dealing has now 
left the Exchange floor and gone 
“upstairs”. Warburg Securities yes- 
terday decided to take all but a little 
trading in second line stocks off the 
floor altogether.

S omething must be 
changing in Italy 
when tbe Prime Min- 
ister chooses as the 
pseudonym with 
which he signs his newspaper 
articles the name of a famous 
bandit. 

Signor Bettino Craxi, who is 
the first Socialist to be Prime 
Minister and holds the record 
for leading the longest-lived 
government in the republic’s 
history, calls himself “Gbino 
di Tacco” when he publishes 
bis usually rather caustic com- 
ments in Avami, tbe Socialist 
Party newspaper. He does so 
half-mocfcingly. 

The name was applied to 
him first by a leading news- 
paper editor who does not 
approve of him and meant the 
label to be derogatory. 

The 13th century Sienese 
bandit lived by robbing trav- 
ellers in the narrow passes on 
the mountainous stretches of 
the road from Rome to Flor- 
ence. In short, he exploited the 
advantage by which travellers 
were forced by circumstances 
into his restricted but real area 
of power. 

The fact that Signor Craxi 
had adopted the mantle of the 
old bandit is remarkable in 
two ways. First, it shows a 
notable sense of realism and* 
second, it suggests that a touch 
of satiric humor in political 
affairs is no longer regarded as 
out of place. * 

Implicit loo is the way 
Italy's unusual Prime Minister 
would hope to see the 
country’s political structure 
develop. 

The Prime Minister’s prin- 
cipal political worry is that his 
Socialist Party is an uih 
successful vote-getter and ob- 
stinately lies a poor third after 
the Christian Democrats and 
the Communists, despite his 
own personal success as Prime 
Minister. 

But he reached the prime 


ministership by knowing how 
to exploit the feet that no 
government could be formed 
without his presence in it or 
without bis blessing. 

Like tbe medieval travellers 
on the road to Florence, the 
Christian Democrats, with 
more than a third of the 
national vote, have had to 
come to terms with the Social- 
ists, who have so fer only 12 
per cent of the electorate 
behind them. And the price he 
has managed to extract from 
them is rational: as they 
cannot manage without him, 
they must accept him as Prime 
Minister if they want to form a 
government at all 

So Italian politics have 
reached a point where there is 
no clear connection between 
electoral strength and real 
power. 

Neither the Christian 
Democrats nor the Com- 
munists in opposition are any 
longer able to transmute their 
large total of votes — between 
them they have two thirds of 
the electorate.— into effective 
political influence. But the 
Socialists, and the still smaller 
Republican Party, possess 
power fer exceeding the 
weight of votes behind them. 

The Republicans, with S per 
cent of the popular vote, 
pulled off tbe extraordinary 
teat five years ago of seeing 
Senator Giovanni Spadotim, 
their leader, become the first 
Prime Minister since the end 
of the war who was not a 
Christian Democrat 

For five years now the 
Christian Democrats have 
held the Prime Minister’s 
office for only six montits 
despite the feet that they are 
the country's largest party. 

Senator Spadohni and Si- 
gnor Craxi between them have 
closed a particular era, that in 
which the Christian Demo- 
crats easily do minated the 


Italian political scene. It lasted 
40 years and first began show- 
ing signs of disintegration in 
the mid- 1 970s when the Chris- 
tian Democrats looked to 
active Communist support as 
a way of maintaining their 
do minance. 

That experiment was has- 
tened to its end first by the 
murder of AJdo More, the 
Christian Democrat architect 
of the alliance, at the hands of 
terrorists, and then by increas- 
ing unrest in tbe rank and file 
of both parties, too little 
prepared for such a radical 
experiment. 

The unexpected death in 
June last year of Enrico 
Berlmguer, the Communist 
leader, placed a final seal on 
the end of a policy which now 
seems to have slipped quietly 
into oblivion. 

For the unlucky Christian 
Democrats, the closing of their 
era of unquestioned domi- 
nance came with revelations 


Street life, Roman-style: a driver is booked and a dog gets a lift in the Via del Corso; young love in the Piazza 
Venezia and a touch of tenderness for the newly married on the steps of the register office 


'of one of the country's worst 

cranHak 

In 1981 Signor Forlani’s 
government fell on the issue of 
his mishandling of the first 
revelations to come to light . 
about the conspiratorial and 
now illegal “Propaganda 
Two" Masonic lodge. That 
gave Senator Spadolini the 
chance to take office with tbe 
moral question as bis main 
priority. 

Senator Spadolini and Si- 
gnor. Craxi have little in 
common as personalities. And 
they do not get on well, which 
is regrettable as their two 
parties must be tbe basis of 
any allian ce of the Jay parties. 
Senator Spadolini is an ener- 
getic academic while Signor 
Craxi is rather cold and highly 
pragmatic. 

But both have the advan- 
tage of being comparative 
newcomers to the gov- 
ernmental scene: Signor Craxi 
took the {Mime ministership 


without any ministerial 
experience in advance; Sen- 
ator Spadolini is eminent in 
university life, has written 
widely and is a former editor 
of the Milan newspaper 
Corriere della Sera. He still 
writes in the press but uses his 
own name. 

Both men like to lead and 
show that they are leading. 
They talk a comparatively 
simple language and, if then- 
formal statements can at times 
be convoluted, they can still 
adopt a style that the ordinary 
person has no difficulty in 
understanding. 

Both are popular in the 
country but neither has be- 
hind him a party with mass 
support 

Tins is less serious for tbe 
Republicans because they are 
in any case didst but it is 
frustrating for Signor Craxi 
that he has so fer railed to turn 
his prestige as Prime Minister 
to electoral advantage. He 


knows that a lot depends on 
the outcome of the next 
elections, thought likely next 
spring. 

The two men are beginning 
to be seen as the standard- 
bearers of an alternative way 
in which to conduct politics. 
Their rise coincided with a 
shift by the public away from 
ideologies. 

So fer the electoral process 
has not caught up with this 
change. 

Some of the leading news- 
papers have grasped the point 
and are giving less space and 
showing less obsessive interest 
in tbe daily outjnit of the 
politicians and political com- 
mentators. The traditional 
style of political debate on 
television now goes largely 
un watched. 

The beginnings of this 
greater realism in political life 
is accompanied by a broaden- 
ing feeling of cautious op- 
timism about the economic 


future. The government 
forsees an increase next year 
in gross national product of 
between 3-316 per cent. 

Oil prices and the decline of 
the dollar have both helped to 
bring down inflation and cut 
costs. The triumphs of the 
Agnelli family have provided 
text-book examples of how 
capitalism can be rationalized 
into scaling the heights of 
profitability. 

The age-old defects are still 
there: the weight of a huge 
public debt, an equally 
weighty and inefficient public 
administration and corrup- 
tion. But Italian industry as a 
whole, both private and state 
industry, is now better led, 
more open-minded and more 
internationally minded than 
in the past. 

Fortune has managed to 
discover that the latest Italian 
fashion is capitalism itself, 
and devoted a cover-story to 
the turnaround. 


In this sense there are strong 
similarities between the signs 
of fresh approaches from both 
the business and the political 
worlds. The politicians have 
much further to go in order to - 
show convincingly that a 
change in certain aspects of 
behaviour means a real 
change in mentality.

hjfacknsof cfye Achille Laura, centre, last year was a crucial event for Italian foreign policy, which, 
Bette Craxi, left, and Gintio Andreotti, right, attaches great importance to dialogue 


How the Italians live 



with a violent world 


1 :* 



Hie Vatican insists that it has no 
foreign policy because no one is a 
foreigner so far as the Church is 
concerned, and something of this 
amtnde has found its way into the 
conduct of Italian foreign affairs. 

Its effects can be seen in the 
current preoccupation of the West 
with what to do about Syria, a 
dilemma which fits into a broader 
framework of bow Italy can 
reassert its claim to conduct a 
vigorous Mediterranean policy 
within the boundaries imposed by 
the European Community and 
Nato. 

It is no coincidence that Libya 
and Syria became the black beasts 
of British diplomacy — to say 
nothing for the moment of Ameri- 
can dealings with Colonel Gadaffi 
— alter the Italians bad built up 
unusually dose ties with both 
those countries. 


Signor Giulio Andreotti was 
one of the foreign minis ters absent 
from the Luxembourg summit 
called four days ago to submit the 
British decision to break dip- 
lomatic relations with Syria. 

That decision was taken after 
the Hindawi trial was felt in 
London to have shown that the 
Syrian government sponsored ter- 
rorists. And one of the prize 
exhibits at the trial was the letter 
sent by Hindawi to his cousin in 
Italy telling him to contact persons 
in Syria with dose contacts with 
terrorist leaders to help free him 
and a brother who was among 
those held for the Berlin disco- 
theque bombing. 

The bombing was the immedi- 
ate cause of the April bombard- 
ment of Libya by the Americans 
which, in its turn, was the indirect 
cause ofa change by the Italians in 
their relationships with Libya. 


dirion of dialogue with which 
history has marifWi I talian diplo- 
macy. He is personally dose to the 
Vatican and shares much of the 
outlook there of looking outward 
without prejudice when one’s 
interests are at stake, a view 
summed op by Pope Pius XL 
“Where there is a question of 
saving souls, or preventing greater 
harm to souls, we fed the courage 
to treat with the devil in person.” 

One would need simply to 
delete souls and add victims of 
terrorism to bring die quotation 
up to date. It was no surpise to 
many people, although some pro- 
fessed to be shocked, that Signor 
Andreotti was absent from the 
Luxembourg meeting because he 
attached greater importance to 
attending the Pope’s Day of Peace 
at Assisi. 


to Egypt with the ship and the 
hostages, was taken to be a notable 
success. 

Exactly what would have hap- 
pened if the Syrians had wdcomed 
the terrorists of sending 

them away is something that can 
only be conjectured, but it is 
difficult to suppose that the shua- 


Lioks with Syria 
were cultivated 


I talian links with the Syrians 
had been cultivated with some 
care. From February 1985 to last' 
September, Signor Andreotti had 
had three meetings with the 
Syrians and been twice to Damas- 
cus. When he returned from his 
visit to Syria in May 1985, he said ' 
the Syrians should not be consid- 
ered puppets of Moscow. 

Signor Andreotti can be said to 
have inherited much of the tra- 


As for Syria, the Italians be- 
lieved that the attentions they bad 
shown the Syrians were fully 
justified when Rome persuaded 
Damascus at the height of the 
Achille Laura crisis to dose Syrian 
ports to the hijackers. The seizure 
of the Italian cruise ship fay 
Palestinians a year ago was a 
crucial moment in Italian policy. 

The &ct that Italian diplomacy 
was able to persuade the Syrians to 
deny help to the hijackers, giving 
them no alternative but to return 


tion would have been improved. 

Hence the Italian view, ex- 
pressed as soon as the hostages 
were released, that the effective- 
ness of their intervention with die 
Syrians was because particular 
attention had been paid to Damas- 
cus in the recent past 

The Achille Lanro affair bristled 
with issues which, for better or 
worse, Italian diplomacy had to 
face. The first was that the 
hijackers were dose to Yassir 
Arafat’s Palestine Liberation 
Organization. Nearly a year before 
the Achille Laura was hijacked. 
Signor Bettino Craxi, the Prime 
Minister, and Signor Andreotti 
-visited Mr Arafat at his head- 
quarters in Tunisia. 


need for a political solution of the 
Palestinian problem and was no 
longer seeing it simply in terms of 
a military defeat of die Israelis. 

On tnim, admittedly, stou ter 
base, the Italians sought to devise 
a policy which would persuade, 
first, Jordan and then the Israelis, 
with American encouragement, to 
sit down together and attempt a 
negotiation. 

Their principal argument al the 
time was that u nothing was done, 
the situation in the Middle East 
could only worsen. 

At the same time they were 
developing their diesis that 
membership of an alliance not 
rally left smaller allies with free- 
dom to conduct an active policy in 
their own area but ought to 
impose such a thing because a 
country in Italy’s position ofbeing 
geographically attached to the 
European Community wink being 
the only long-standing member 
with its sea coasts entirely wasted 
the Mediterranean, bad a special 
experience to bring to bear. 

This was the period too when 
such leading public figures as 
Senator Sandro Pertini, then still 


acts as becoming the first country 
on the Continent to allow the 
installation of Cruise missiles. 

The outcome of the Achille 
Laura crisis brought the most 
serious with the Americans 
since the end of the war. The US 
action erf* forcing down in Sicily 
the Egyptian aircraft which .was 
taking the hijackers to Tunisia 
came up against the refusal by the 
Italian authorities to permit the 
extradition of the terrorist Abbas, 
who was also aboard the I^yptian 
aircraft. 

The government was forced to 
offer its resignation because the 
minis ters drawn from the Repub- 
lican Party objected to the han- 
dling of the liberation of Abbas. 
The dissent by the Republicans, 
however, was limited to this rase 
element and they did not object to 
the way the diplomatic contacts 


position at the moment looks 
blocked. And so does the other 
side of the coin of Italian foreign 
policy. Rome r em ains firmly at- 
tached to the European ideal. 
Much of the policy involving 

the PLO had been intended as an 

approach to be looked at, and, it 
was hoped, backed by, the 
Co mmunity because one of the 
slogans of Italian policy is that a 
decision wit<»n by 12 countries is

an indiv idual country.

The logical conclusion to draw 
would be that a decision such as 
that taken fo London of severing 
relations with Syria should not 
first be decided, then offered to the 
otter members of the Community 
for their blessing: it should ideally 
be agreed first by the whole 
Community. 

But that too is looking increas- 
ingly Utopian. Which brings one 
back to the traditional view that

body, especially with the more 
diffi cult countries, is as good an 
alternative as the present moment 
offers to that dor, constructive

“Fot the first time in 20 years 
our principal economic in- 
dicators are all pointing to- 
wards improvement We can 
be very satisfied with the 
results.” Bettino Craxi, the 
Socialist Prime Minister, had 
seldom sounded so confident 
as in a recent speech in Genoa. 

“This year again,” he wait 
on, “our growth will be the 
highest among all European 
Community countries (2.8 per 
cent against an average Z6 per 
cent) and the forecasts are still 
more optimistic for next year 
(3.5 per cent against 2-5 per 
cent).” 

The balance of payments, 
instead of deteriorating. Kite 
Britain's, would swing round 
to a surplus at the end of 1986 
of about 8,000 billion lire 
(£4,000 million) from a deficit 


of corresponding size in 1 985. 

The public sector deficit, 
still high compared to that of 
most industrialized econo- 
mies, should pass from 16.4 
per cent of gross domestic 
product last year to 14.3 per 
cent this year. 

The battle against inflation 
has been won and the days of 
double digit increases seem 
past history. Signor Craxi said 
inflation might be down to 4 
per cent at the end of this year, 
while Giovanni Goria, the 
Christian Democrat treasury 
minister, thinks 3 per cent 
possible by the end of 1 987. 

Signor Goria, speaking in 
bfilan, forecast die creation of 
250,000 jobs in 1987 and a 25 
per cent redaction in the 
number temporarily laid off 
by companies. An accurate 
figure for unemployment is 
virtually . unobtainable, as 
statistics are incomplete. 

Figures do not take into 
account those paid out of the 
temporary redundancy fund 
on the one hand, or those 
Jiving from the “black 
economy” on the other — but 
□one suggest it is as high as in 
Britain. 

Politicians are always 
tempted to gild the lily, but foe 
atmosphere of boom is borne 

OUt among the financial 


community in Milan. Finns 
are making good profits and 
generating strong cash flows 
for new investments. 

Only a few years ago it 
seemed that “small - is 
beautiful” and the flexible 
smaller companies were best 
adapted to cope with foe then 
prevalent recession. Now the 
big groups are back a g ain, 
making the running. 

An example is Hat, which 
received a much needed shot 
in the arm from a $400 million 
capital injection from Libya 
ten years ago. In September 
foe Libyans, by now a serious 
political embarrassment, sold 
their holding for over S3 
billion, a reflection of the Hat 
group's record profits. 

The boom has gripped the 
stock exchange, which for foe 
first time has become popular 
among members of the public, 
who have been investing ei- 
ther directly or through uni t 
trusts that have been formed 
in foe last two years. 

This, a Milan banker la- 
mented, has diverted private 
savings away from hank 
deposits, whose rale of growth 
has been slowing. Recently the 
market has been consolidating 
after hs period of heady rises, 
but the daily value of rifling* 
in Milan continues to be four 



or five times that of three 
years ago. 

Mario Schimbemi, chair- 
man _ of the Montedison 
chemical group, summed up 
what has been happening by 
writing in a magazine article 
that capitalism and the saving 
public had at last made con- 
tact in Italy. 

Traditionally family 
to deposit their savings with 
banks — Italy has one of the 
highest personal savings rates 
in the industrialized world — 
while firms financed their 
activities principally through 
bank borrowing. Recent 
events on the stock exchange 
showed that a direct relation- 
ship had now been 
established. 

Recent events on the stock 
exchange, particularly on ef- 
fervescent days, have also 
reflected a spate of tumours 
about behind-the-scenes take- 
over threats, banks for in- 
fluence or control over 
companies, alliances being 
formed or broken. Signor 
Schimbemi has himself been 
at the centre of much activity. 

A self-made Roman, he is 
popularly portrayed as taking 
on the establishment, repre- 
sented by the elderly Enrico 
Cuccia of Mediobanca mer- 
chant bank and, behind him_ 


Capitalism 
and Italy’s 
small savers 
have at last 
made contact 
through foe 
now popular 
stock market 


families such as foe Agnellis of 
Hat and foe Pirellis. 

Even foe big state-owned 
groups are back in health. The 
giant IRI (Istituto per la 
ricostruzione industrial) 
corporation, employing half a 
million, is moving towards 
break even. The oil and energy 
corporation EN1 has been 
bade in profit since last year 
and reports a further 26 per 
cent advance in gross profits 
in foe first half of this year. 

Both are following a cau- 
tious privatization policy, 
usually leaving control of 
subsidiaries in the hands of 
the public sector, as with share 


flotations for ENTs engineer- 
ing subsidiaries Saipem and 
Nuovo Pignone. 

But IRI. following the 
appearance of two reputable 
suitors — Ford and Hat — has 
gladly offered to relinquish 
control over its loss-making 
car manufacturer Alfa Romeo. 

Political stability is one 
feclor behind foe economic 
lumround. even ifbasic stabil- 
ity was always there — the 
Christian Democrats have 
been in every government, 
since foe war, and some 
ministers have held office of 
one kind or another for the 
last ten or 20 years. But foe 
presence of one prime min- 
ister for three years has pro- 
vided at least a cosmetic uplift 
that has boosted Italy's imag e 
abroad. 

Another reason has been the 
government's trimming of la- 
bour costs through successive 
whittling down of the system 
of automatic wage indexation. 
The degree of indexation 
against foe cost of living has 
been reduced, while adjust- 
ments are uow made every six 
instead of every three months. 

But the most evident reason 
has been foe fall in the price oi 
ofl and in the dollar. Italy is 
one of foe developed countries 
most dependent on imported 


oil and, since it had done least 
to adjust to the shocks of the 
1970s, so it has benefited most’ 
from the plunge in crude 
pnees. 

Industrialists naturally wel- 
come the economic upturn, 
but tend to be much more 
cautious than the politicians. 
Innocen 20 CipoUetta, eco- 
nomic adviser io 
Confindustria. foe confedera- 
tion of private industry, is 
concerned at foe prospects for 
the world economy and its 
effects on Italy as a country 
transforming imported raw 
materials into exported 
manufactures. 

He fears that Italy is losing 
its competitiveness, above all 
in relation to the United Slates 
and newly industrialized 
countries with currencies 
linked to foe fate of the dollar. 
The Italian economy, in his 
view, is at present relying too 
much on internal demand. 

Signor CipoUetta recom- 
mends a more courageous 
government policy of public 
investment in infrastructure 
and foe quality of life, that 
would help employment and 
at the same time improve 
competitiveness. 

The government must cut 
through red tape and simplify 
that combination of what 


Paolo Annibaldi, 

Confindustria's secretary gen- 
eral. has described as “con- 
fused legislation, a stifling 
bureaucratic machine and an 
inextricable labyrinth of 
procedures”. 

Billions of lire of public 
investment in infrastructure 
since foe war have, however, 
failed to bridge foe gap be- 
tween the north and pans of 
foe backward South. 

This autumn a possible 
threat to government policies 
has appeared with the emer- 
gence of labour icnsionsJn 
October, foe metalworkers’ 
union, after gening approval 
for their demands for a new 
labour contract approved in a 
national factory-wide referen- 
dum, called a half-day strike 
that showed they can once 
more muster support. 

Altogether, labour contracts 
affecting over eight mill ion 
workers in different sectors 
are up for renegotiation. In- 
dependent unions or guilds 
representing hospital doctors, 
airline pilots and teachers are 
also on the warpath. Much of 
the official optimism will 
evaporate if widespread la- 
bour unrest breaks out

arg increasingly familiar to the inter- 
national public 

'Has some new species been bom, 
thginternational Italian entreprenur, 
prowling the jungle of the world 
economy? The reply in the Milan 
bisiness" world is a straight “No". 

Italian firms have been interested 
in-gx pan ding abroad for years. Pirelli 
founded Pirelli General Gable Works 
uriSouthamption in 1914. Olivetti 
had factories in Scotland and else- 
where long before Signor de 
Benedetti ’s arrival. 

The state oil corporation. ENI, set 
up a joint production venture with 
Iran in 1957 in an attack on the 
monopoly of the international oil 
companies, the Seven Sisters, as they 
used to be called. Fiat, the car-maker, 
has for years been a world trader. 

But for years foreign-minded en- 
trepreneurs faced all kinds of diffi- 
culties. First came two worid wars 
and the intervening period of Fas- 
cism, intent on economic self-suf- 
ficiency. After the Second- World 
War, energies were devoted to na- 
tional reconstruction. In the 1970s 
and early 1980s companies had to 
cope with two oil shocks, high 
inflation and recession. Investing 
abroad was hampered by a mass of 
restrictions, now being gradually 
eased. 

What is new, however, is an 
explosion in entrepreunerial activity, 
as firms reap the benefit of financial 
reorganization, abundant cash flows 
and fat profits. Opportunities in Italy 


are often limited, and it is natural to 
look abroad. Even so Franco 
Reviglio. ENTs chairman, estimates 
Italian investment abroad at the 
equivalent of only 2 to 3 per cent of 
gross domestic product, about the 
same as investment by foreign com- 
panies in Italy. 

This, he said in a recent lecture in 
London, is well behind the 5 or 6 per 
cent attributed to both West Ger- 
many and Japan, let alone the 20 per 
cent estimated for the UK. All 
indications are that the Italian level 
will increase. Some 
activity goes on 
without making 
the splash that 
surrounds more 
recent actors on 
the scene. Pirelli, 
still under family 
control, sees it- 
self as Italy's 
most multinational Italian group. 
Reorganized since the failure of the 
disastrous marriage with Dunlop into 
a complicated structure of four 
companies with the Pirelli name (two 
registered in Italy, two in Switzer- 
land), it has 117 plants in 16 
countries, mostly making cables. 
About 70 per cent of group output is 
produced abroad. 

Early this year it bought Metzeler 
Kautschuk of West Germany, which 
specializes in rubber products. Other 
recent moves in the tyre sector 
include new plants in Tunisia, Brazil 
and. jointly with the Birla group, in 
Orissa state in India. 

In the cable sector, which includes 
the high-technology fields of optical 
fibres and transmission systems, 
Pirelli has bought stakes in Focom of 


Britain and Valec of France and has 
taken full control of Pirelii-Ericsson 
cables in Australia. Last year two 
small special cables and optical-fibre 
plants were opened at Eastleigh, 
Hampshire. 

By contrast, Fiat whose consoli- 
dated net profit last year of 1,326 
billion lire (about $950 million) was a 
record for an Italian concern, has a 
strong management strategy that 
evidently does, not make it an easy 
partner for foreigners. 

Ventures in motor cars with 
Citroen and in earth-moving equip 
meat with .Allis 
Chalmers of the 
US have not been 
a success. A pro- 
posal for 
collaboration in 
Europe with Ford 
broke down last 
year. Early this 
year, however, with United Technol- 
ogies, it bought a 29.9 per cent share 
in Westland helicopters. 

Signor de Benedetti, before moving 
to Olivetti, had an abortive period in 
Fiat's top management, followed by 
an ill-judged collaboration with the 
late Roberto Calvi at Banco 
Ambrosiano. 

One of the fastest movers on the 
international scene, he has this year 
announced eight purchases or .joint 
ventures abroad in France, the US. 
West Germany, Switzerland and. as 
subsidiary of an Italian acquisition, 
Belgium, as well as the establishment 
of a French holding company. 

Four of these initiatives are in 
computers and automation, two in 
car components, one in food and one 


in finance. They include a substantial 
stake in the French car component 
maker Valdo, and a deaf with 
Volkswagen that brought in Tri- 
umph -Adler. 

If Signor de Benedetti was the first 
of a new generation to jolt the 
established way of life, he has been 
followed by Raul Gardini of the 
Ravenna-based Ferruzzi agricultural 
group. 

Recently attention in Italy has been 
monopolized by Signor GanetinTs 
emergence as the biggest single share- 
holder in the Montedison chemical 
group, but he has not withdrawn from 
the fight for British Sugar. Ferruzzi 
already controls Eridania of Italy and 
Beghin-Say of France (paper as mil 
as sugar) and, if it adds British Sugar, 
it will become number one in Europe. 

Third of the three musketeers is 
Mario Schimbemi of Montedison 
who. in a elusive duel, has been trying 
to obtain Egyptian-born Refeat el 
Sayed's controlling share in the 
Swedish pharmaceuticals group 
Fermenta, which also has an im- 
portant Italian subsidiary, PierreL 

Signor Schimbemi has pulled 
Montedison around to profitability 
after years of losses and political, 
interference, and wishes to move 
further away from petrochemicals. 

Lastly, the stale sector should not 
be forgotten. ENI, which is making 
record profits, has through its subsid- 
iary, Agip, 162 oil and gas joint 
ventures in 27 countries. It has 
combined with ICI of Britain to make 
PVC and with a Saudi Arabian 
company to make MTBE additive for 
petrol at A1 Jubail on the Gull 


One of the fastest 
international movers, 
he has announced 
eight buys this year

The dominating presence in

leaving Ms marl: in (he form of 
a signature in Lathi across the 
fapfefie with a dedication to 
“the spirit of the city", to 
Venice itself. 

Giovanni Dario was a rich 
businessman and diplomat 
who successfully negotiated 
with the Turks when their 
military supremacy under 
Mohammad H was threaten- 
;the Venetian republic. 
bn3t up a personal 
relationship of mutual esteem 
with tiie Ottoman rater and his 
brOEant mediation won him 
die gratitude of the Venetians. 

Bat he never forgot that he 
was a businessman and that 
trade had allowed him to 
accumulate enough wealth to 
devote time to study, read and 
practise Greek, which he 
spoke well and which was 
essential to Levant diplomacy 
at the time. 

The great house across the 
eaimi from the Gritti Palace is 
an apt memorial loan original 
personality. And, if it can 
sometimes be dangerous to 
press precedents across the 
ceotnries too hard, the connec- 
tion between Giovanni Dario 
and Banl G«wt««ij merchant 
negotiators beneath the same 
roof but parted by 500 years of 
history, is far from fhnczfaL 

Like Dario, Signor Gardini 
comes from the Upper Adri- 
atic not from Venice bat from 
the prosperous provincial 
background of Ravenna.

If he dears the hurdle of the 
UK Monopolies Commission, 
which is looking at his pos-

British Sugar against the com- 
petition mTate & Lyle, he 
woeM control nearly a quarter 
of European sugar production. 

Opposition to his ambitions 
has come from British farm- 
ers. He hopes to keep that m 
check by his appoMteent of 
Sir Richard Batter, a former 
chairman of the Farmers’ 
Union, to preside over his 
British subsidiary. He detects

widespread diffidence hi Brit- 
ish opinion about his 
ambitions. 

£ps grizzled nod looks — he 
is a sailor of international 
class— seem to evoke the Don 
Giovanni image, and misuse of 
funds on the part of some 
Italian fanners, especially in 
the South, from the European 
Community has probably 
contributed to this touch of 
suspicion at the presence of a 
powerful Italian group in Brit- 
ish agriculture. 

Signor Gardini is ML of 
confidence as he explains over 
dinner in the garden of 
Ca'dario why be feds he 
cannot lose. 

He has brought Ferruzzi to 
third place in turnover t er m s 


in Italy after Fiat and 
in which be has 
a 22 per cent stake, 
_ him tbesingfe biggest 
shareholder. 

More to the point, in British 
terms, is that Ferruzzi is the

What he insists on is that 
the group he heads is more 
than highly prosperous: it nix 
has a phaosophy, which® 
largely Ms. His provincial 
background (meaning that be 
comes from a laud-owaisBg 
family and is married to one of 
the daughters of Scrafino 
Ferrnzzi, the form's founder, a 
neighbour in Ravenna) is the 
source of it. _

tion of technology to agp-

amusingly how his workers 
are taught to apply new meth- 
ods on Ferruzzi estates In 
Argentina or Uruguay. 

But he does not want to 
destroy country life, explain- 
ing: “It. is important to have 
forth in the idea drat the rural 
world must go on, and consoli- 
date itself still more." 

He is convinced that there is 
a strong Enk between farmers 
the world over because they all 
have the same amc to make 
tire most they can from the 
land. He sees better prospects 
for them ff they can work in a 
more unified structure. 

One of his aims is to make 
use of cereal ami sugar sur- 
pluses for industrial use, in 
biotechnology and petrol 
additives. 

To do this, be believes be 
must have a large share of the 
market He is convinced that 
Britain is now irreversibty a 
part of Enrope, whatever 
residual mistru s t there may be 
towards the Continent And 
that is why he argues that he 
can offer so rnnch more than 
Ms rivals for British Sugar. 

He says “A purchase by 
Tate & Lyk would in effect 
mean nothing by comparison 
with the vistas that we can 
open.” 

Tbe spirit of the boose may 
have something to do with the 
adroit way in which, fike

A VINEYARD CALLED ITALY 


leaves were founShy Abramo 
MassaJongo. an ! la lion botanist, 
in the rocks of Bolca. a small 
village high on the hills above 
Verona, near lake Garda, in 
Northern Italy 
These were dated at some 40 
million years and must have 
belonged to an early ancestor of 
the wild vine from which our 
•Vnis Vinifera' derived 
The age of the 'Ampelo- 
phylluro Bokense'. as this fossil is 
now known, makes one’s mind 
boggle, as indeed do ihe other 
fossils of past marine life to be 
found in the nny museum at 
Bolca The notion of time as we 
currently know iu becomes more 
difficult 10 grasp and yet. as one 
leaves die museum and is nearly 
run over by a roaring motorbike 
and the blaring transistor radios 
of ihe local youths fill the ah’ with 
their loud music, buiorv becomes 
suddenly very much a dung of the 
past! 

In the distance ate neat nows of 
vines covering the hillside is it 
here where the vineyard called 
Italy Qrst started 7 
we are in Veneto. a region of 
north-eastern Italy dial offers a 
great range of natural beauties. 
trom the breathtaking peaks of 
the Dolomites to the plains of the 
Adriatic coast . us well as man 
made masteroieces like Venice, 
the Queen of the sea. the capital 
of the region 
Some of the many wines 
produced here are well known to 
the consumer This is the case of 
Valpolicella. Soave and others, 
but of late new names have 
appeared on wine merchants' 
lists. Lucana. a ensp white from 
the south of lake Garda. Biunco 
di Cusioza. another white from 
the same area. Reooto Amaronc 
della Valpolicella. a densly fruity 
red with almost resj/j-Jike 
richness and the smooth flavour 
of very npe grapes, Venegazzu' a 
red made m the Bordeaux style 
that readies considerable bights 
and is regarded as one of the best 
reds of inis region 

A little further north, towards 
the Brenner Pass, is the region of 
Trenuno-Alto-Adige If you 
travel along the mrvonrav 
eventually leading to the Puss, 
you go along the vallev of the 
Adige nver and on cither side 
you see a sea of sines that 
attends to the slopes of ihe 
nearby hills 

Once upon a rime the glaciers 
pushed down along these valk-ys 
to eventuaHv form l he various 


northern Italian lakes such as that 
of Garda. 

Now. the fertile soil is borne to 
the vine as indeed it has been for 
a very longtime Several wmes 
are made here, mostly named 
after the variety that fe 
predominant in their making 
They are the various Riesling 
Itaiico. Trammer Aromarico. 
Pinoi Grjgio and many others, 
often known by their German 
names: WeL<ch'nesline. 

Gewurztra miner. Rulander 
Their tables are designed with 
a definite Austro-German style 
and they are mostly grouped 
under the umbrella of a specific 
DOC (Denommazioiie di Origin c 
Controllaia. or controlled 
denomination or origin) such as 
thai of Trentino or Alto Adige 
This system of DOC umbrellas 
has been used a bo in Friuli- 
Venezia Giulia, a small region in 
the extreme east. by the Yugoslav 
border There, the DOCi Grave. 
Lsortzo. Collio. Colli Oncntali 
each cover a dozen or so wines 
named after ihe grape variety 
they are made from and we find 
again familiar names such as 
Pinoi Grigio. Cftardonnay. Tocai 
as well as the names of varieties 
peculiar to this area such as 
verduzzo. Refosco or PkoJit 
The latter, under the DOC Colli 
Orientaii. is a legendary white 
produced by few growers that 
take particular pnde in 
perpetuating the production of 
what is known as the Chateau 
d’Yquem of Italy 
This wine wax’ well known since 
the latter pan of the eighteenth 
century and graced the tables of 
the courts or Europe 
Cryptogomic diseases first, then 
floral abortion, have destroyed 
most of the finest vineyards of 
what is reputed to be ihe best 
dessert wine made in Italy 
Fortunately. Professor 
Dalmasso, a famous Italian 
Penologist. has been successful m 
cross-breading the ptoalu variety 
with others and this i> an 
important step towards 
re-estahhsnme new vineyards 
On the whew. Italy has some 
l 15 million hcctars (just short of 
3 million acres’) under vine, with 
a production of grapes per hectar 
averaging above 9 tons Red 
wines nave Inst ground to whites 
and some varieties have 
increased their share, such as 
Cabernet Sauvignon. 

Chardonnay. Riesling Itaiico 
All twenty regions of Italy, 
produce wine and the advent of 
the Denomination of Origin Law 


just over twenty years ago. has 
dunged the whole image of 
Italian wine production and 
improved considerably the 
reputation of Italian wines 
abroad. 

There arc well over cwo 
hundred DOCs at the moment, 
accounting for several hundred 
wines. Some are well known 
names such as Frascati and 
Onrieio. others are obscure even 
to the average Julian consumer, 
their production being limited 
and consumption confined to a 
restricted area, others have 
names that are unpronounceable 
such us Cocc'e Mmitte di Lucera. 
a ruby red from the south near 
Foggia. 

Since the new Law came into 
force in 1963. Italian export has 
increased seven fold and what is 
most important. Italy is now 
exporting much better quality 
wine dial ii used in 

The slow process of winning 
new consumers has been helped 
by fun wines such as Lambnisco. 
a semi-sweet, semi-sparkling red 
< and white i from Emilia- 
Romagna that may not be taken 
into serious consideration by ihe 
connoisseurs and yet has done a 
lot io fill tbe gap and shape the 
new- generation oi consumers 
helping them io eventually 
graduate to belter and more 
sophistics led choices 

Italian Restaurants in London, 
traditionally have always been 
instrumental in promoting Italian 
wines, introducing from time ro 
time more comprehensive wine 
lists: bur now the process has 
been magnified and Italian wines 
are to be found more and more in 
restaurants other than Italian and 
this is also the case of oft licence 
shops and supermarkets 

The interest in Iralran wmes 
has become more and more 
pronounced as Ihe consumption 
of wine in this country has 
increased and the sophistication 
of the consumer has opened new 
avenues and allowed lo discover 
a totally new worid in the wmes 
of 'Eniitna*. the land of grapes as 
the Italian peninsula got to be 
known m ancient urnes. covered, 
as it was. by vines 

It was the Romans who look 
over from the Greeks and tbe 
Etruscan who had brought 
oeno logical practices to Italy 
They actively cultivated the Vine 
and produced some great wines 
In their conquesis they 
introduced the practice of wine 
making in GauTand even in 
England and the production 
of wine soon became so massive 


that the emperor Donntian was 
forced to curb the spreading of 
tbe cultivation of the vine. 

Professor Dalmasso in a wort 
on Tuscan viticulture and 
oe no logy, states that the vine 
plant existed in that pan of 
northern central Italy, from the 
dawn of history, long before man 
appeared on die earth. 
According to him, some fossil 
vines found in the travertine 
rocks of S. Vivaldo, known as 
‘Vitis Ausoniae'. a variety of the 
‘Viiis Vinifera' ae to be regarded 
as che ancestors of the wild vines 
and quite possibly of the very 
vines cultivated nowadays in (his 
celebrated region. 

So, did the vineyard called 
Italy start in Tuscany? 

Certainly viticulture, as wr 
know it, was started by the 
Etruscan, a people from the 
north-east that invaded northern 
Italy and eventually settled down 
in Tuscany to which it gave the 
name. 

Here, in what Olive Hamilton 
described in her book as the 
paradise of British exiles, the 
cultivation of the vine is a major 
industry. Chianti, probably the 
best known local wine, is made 
by some seven thousand 
registered producers and its 
quality, according to their skill, 
certainly Can reach extraordinary 
heights. Tuscany ex cells as one of 
the leading wine producing 
regions of Italy and boasts reds of 

K t repute such as Brunello di 
nalcino. Nobile di 
Momepukiano asweli as the 
white Vemacria di San 
Gimignano and. of late Gales tin 
and Bianco della Lega. two new 
wines made in meet the 
requirements of the young 
drinkers of rodav. 

Brunello di Monialrino. 

Nobile di Montepulciano and 
Chianti, arc now wines of DOCG 
status The 'G' stands for 
'garantita' and this gives the 
consumer an exira assurance of 
the quality of the wine that has 
been scrupulously veiled by 
panels of tasters appointed by the 
govern mem. This category, that 
of DOCG wines only include five 
styles, the three mentioned and 
Barolo and Barbatcsco. made in 
Piedmont, the northern region 
bordering France. These too are 
red and among the best known 
wmes of haly.'ihc former often 
referred to as "the wine of the 
kings' since it was the favourite 
wine at die court of Aosta. 

Like elsewhere also here is 
Piedmont, besides the full bodied 
generous reds there is a new 
nerauun of whites such as 
>avi. made from the cunese 
grapes in on area between 
Alessandria and Genoa, and 
A (Tiers an elegant drv »me 
rediscovered near Alba. 

So. w herever ii may have 
started originally, the vineyard 
called Italy is very much ihruing 
and the choice of 'wines ii offers is 
second to none. Italy, the garden 
of Europe with iu natural " 
beauties and artistic and 
architectural treasures is still very 
much to be diseqv ered so are its 
wines whether produced on the 
slopes of the Alps or of mount 
Etna in Sicilv.on the shores of 
the c/adaf kikes of the north or 
on the uny islands scattered in 
ihcTynnenun Sea.

a record of which the com- 
pany is justifiably proud. 

Consistent 

performers. 

Indeed, Indesit Managing 
Director, John MaJagoni.has 
his vision confidently fixed 
on the second ‘generation’. 



John Matagoni, 
Managing Director 
“We’ve built our reputation 
on producing excellent, 
value for money machines. 
But- we've always had an 
underlying consistency of 
innovation. Reliability 
remains our first priority - 
and that of the consumer - 
but the importance of 
ongoing developments is 
vital. Now. more than ever, 
our machines are way ahead 
on pointsT' 

The . latter reference is lar 
from being the mere 
rhetoric of the man in 
charge. lndesil's new 
Omega Range has been 
responsible forarguably the 
biggest stir in the trade fora - 
decade. 


Preparing the way. 
As though in preparation 
for machines of such 
importance. 18 months ago 


Indesit's Italian production 
lines underwent massive 
and irrevocable change. 
This total restructuring was. 
in truth, the implement- 
ation of long established 
plans. The end result being 
hi-tech production stream- 
lining on a grand scale. 
Achieved through admit- 
tedly heavy investment, 
this futuristic development 
has already proven to be a 
very shrewd investment. 
Exceptional thoroughness 
has been applied, particu- 
larly to both quality control 
and product design. 

The reliability factor. 

It appears that in the pro- 
cess, Indesit have dis- 
covered the secret of long 
life.- For the reliability of 
the Indesit Omega Range is 
proving phenomenal. 

Worthy testament to the 
scrupulous attention to de- 
tail at the Italian factories. 

As a matter of course 
every machine is tested on 
its. full cycle, whilst 
randomly selected models 
from the everyday product- 
ion line are given a rigorous 
500hourtesL Lasting 21 days. 

Even the slightest 
suspicion of a problem 
means that the production- 
line is halted and the entire 
batch is recalled to undergo 
investigation. • 

Attention to detail. 

Faults are rare enough, - 
since the very latest 
robotised production tech- 
niques virtually rule out the 
possibility of error. 

Inspection of even the 
smallest component takes 
place prior to production 
itself. With such extensive 
automation taking place, 
-the only labour intensive . 
area of production is that of 
quality control. Even here, 
computers are used to 
ensure that every Indesit 
product meets the high 
standard demanded. 


Precision- boilL 

This production-line pre- 
cision has not gone ignored 
by competitive makes, as 
John Malagoni reveals: 
' “The Indesit Italian factories 
do- actually produce 
products for other manu- 
facturers under their own 
brand name fordistribution 
throughout Europe. 

“It’s worth noting that 
these models almost always 
retail at substantially higher 
prices than their Indesit 
branded equivalents.” The 
old adage of ‘joining them if 
you can't beat them' still 
rings true. 

‘Total Washing 
System*. 

As far as the new Indesit 
Omega Range is concerned, 
it is apparent that the 
customer was, in effect, one 
of the design technicians. 

Brian Drury, Marketing 
Director, relates: “Through 
extensive research and 
'close contacts with every 
level of the trade, it was 
increasingly obvious that as 
well as product confidence, 
customers were increas- 
ingly demanding far more 



Brian Drury, 
Marketing Director 
from their machines. More 
wash options, together wife 
certain specific benefits, 
hot all available in one 
machine. This thought 
pattern became the blue- 
print for the new Indesit 
Omega Range. We’ve put 


far more into these machines. 
Consequently, the customer 
gets far more out of an 
Indesit Omega.” 

Joining forces. 

The Indesit Omega is 
really the brainchild of not 
one but two companies. 

In arriving at their total 
washing machine concept. 
Indesit enlisted the help of 
detergent giants Procter & 
Gamble. Working closely 
with their technicians and 
keeping research findings 
firmly in mind, the Indesit 
Omega Range was form- 
ulated- Perhaps notsurpris- 
ingty, PAG have been using 
Indesit machines in their 
own laboratories forseveral 
years. (Proctor & Gamble 
- among the leading 
exponents of fabric care - 
produce Ariel Automatic. 
Particularly popular for the 
power of its slain removing 
enzymes in low tempera- 
ture washes.) 

Indesit Omega. 
What makes it so 
much better? 

If s worth looking at the 
Indesit Omega in some 
detail, for it presents the 
consumer with a unique 
proposition: ‘Other manu- 
facturers may boast one or 
two of its features, but none 
have a single npachine offer- 
ing them all.’ 

To begin with, every 
Omega has a unique ‘Total 
Stain Removal Cycle' This 
guarantees removal of 
practically any stain. A 
superbly effective wash, 
again developed with the 
co-operation of Procter & 
Gamble, h utilises the 
outstanding stain removal 
powers of low temperature 
Ariel Automatic. “ 

The next Indesit brain- 
wave: a ‘Hand Wash Cycle’ 
which is actually gentler 
than the human hand. The 
drum performs a slow tilt 
and rock action that gives 


the care and attention most 
people would not have the 
patience to provide. 

Another problem solved 
was how to out-think 
unsightly creases. Omega's 
‘Anti-Crease Programme' 
simply dispenses with the 
final spin, and allows water 
to drain, ready for drip 
drying. A further innovation, 
the Omega ‘Fast Multi- 
Fabric Wash’ Designed 
especially for lightly soiled 
clothing, cutting time, 
energy and even water 
consumption. 

The Indesit relationship 
with Procter & Gamble has 
also ensured that each 
Omega actually gives 
lasting care to fabrics. In 
addition each machine in 
the Omega Range features 
an energy saving, over-ride 
feature and half load 
facility. Both can drastically 
reduce the cost of the family 
wash. A choice of spin 
speeds is further included.

better price. 

Most importantly from a 
marketing standpoint, the 
Indesit Omegas are more 
competitively priced than 
many machines offering far 
less. While every Omega 
comes with the added 
advantage of a free 5 Year 
Components Guarantee. 

Considering the fascia 
design of the Omega, the 
expression ’user-friendly' 
seems never more apt. It’s a 
design that invites, rather 
than intimidates. The 
finishing touch to a washing 
machine range of un- 
doubted superiority. 

However, Indesit can not 
only boast star performers 
in the washing machine 
area. 

Take the Indesit Omega 
Rapide Super Dishwasher. 
A slightly grandiloquent 
title perhaps. But it is 
difficult to understate this 


■astir.

capabilities. 

The Current European 
Record Holder. 

The average dishwasher 
completes a full load in 
around 75 minutes. The 
new Omega Rapide Super 
can finish the job in around 
18 minutes. A record time 
which has made the Rapide 
Super the fastest dish- 
washer in Europe. 

Thorough too, it has a 
special power cycle for 
heavily soiled crockery, and 
a gentle cycle that can even 
dishwash bone china. 
(While the Omega badge 
• entitles it to a full 5 Year 
Components Guarantee.) 

Fridge freezing has. 
always been an Indesit 
stronghold also. Open the 
doors of an Indesit fridge 
freezer in a showroom, and 
this is understandable. 
Everything from tilting 
shelves - enabling the user 
to store open bottles and 
cartons when the fridge is 
full - to skirting cutaways, 
so everything fits Hush. 

From Indesit's point of 
view, nothing beats a good 
idea.

Piazza Navnna at night is a 
marvellous sight Mesmeriz- 
<ng luminous lights mingle 
with aquamarine water as it 
cascades over Bcanini’s foun- 
tain, casting a bewitching spdl 

over this Roman piazza. 

Caricature artists gather on 
canvas stools to entertain 
tourists, many American, as 
they stroll between the Tie 
Scalini cafe and their hotels. 

This is the scene most

the atmosphere in the piazza

The assumption that US tour- 
ists win, like swallows, arrive 
with the spring has received a 
fundamental shock. 

A fall of more 
than 50 per cent 

The volatile nature ofMedi- 
terranean politics, the anti- 
Americanism of Colonel 
Gadaffi, the December massa- 
cres at Rome and Vienna 
airports dose on the heels of 
the TWA and Achifle Lauro 
hijacks, outrage in the US 
press and the bombing of 
Libya m April have cut some 
categories of US tourists to 
Europe and Italy by 75 per 
cent 

Worst- affected have been* 
Rome, Venice and Florence, 
whose five-star de luxe hotel 
chains like Ciga, Sheraton and 
Holiday Inn, and quality 
shops such as Gucci and 
Fendi, normally welcome a 
high proportion of these US 
visitors. 

Last year nearly three mil- 
lion American tourists spent 
their dollars in Italy. This year 
a fell of more than 50 per cent 
is expected. 

For the first time in the 
history of Italian tourism, 
public and private operators, 
including Bait, the Italian

stopped many 
American tourists 
from going to Italy.

Alitalia, the Italian airliwr 

FAIAT, the Italian hp ttliCB S 

association, American Ex- 
press, and Banco Nationals 
del Lavoro, joined forces to 
launch a S4-Z million advertis- 
ing and public-relations ram. 
paign in the US. 

The campaign, which 
started on September 29 and 
runs until November 3, ha* 
placed TV commercials on 38 
channels. 

The promotion includes a 
$1.4 million press campaign 
aimed at publications such as 
The Los Angeles Times, New 
Yorker and USA Today, and a 
public relations drive offering 
trips to Italy to the American 
press and travel trade. A 
similar promotion, costing £3 
million, is to be launched in 
Britain and Japan. 

Hus year US tourists head- 
ing for Europe were given the 
fbflowing advice by American 
Express: it is a personal de- 
cision, and we recommend 
travellers be prudent and ex- 
ercise commonsense white 
abroad. It was not surprising 
that in the four months from 
April to July this year, 50,000 
fewer Americans went to Italy 
than in the same period last 
year. 

Their absence is a serious 
blow to the tourist industry, 
which generates 25,000 billion 
lire (about £12^ billion) a year 
and employs 1.8 minion peo- 
ple, SO per cent full-time, the 
rest in high season. 

Incentive travel has re- 
ceived the hardest blow, with 
cancellations of between 80 
and 100 per cent Given the 
advance nature of bookings 
for this type of travel, there is 
tittle hope of recovering next 
year’s losses. It is not expected 
to pick up again before 1988. 

Last year, Italy’s gross na- 
tional product was worth 
684,843 billion Ere. Of this, 
16,722 billion Ere, or 23 per 
cent, came from tourism as 
foreign currency earnings. This

Pigeons galore, but tourists are lacking in Botogna’s Piazza Maggjore. Right in Rome’s 
Piazza Navnna, as instant-portrait artist has wd* a catch 


exceeded by 12362 billion lire 
the sum spent by Italians 
holidaying abroad, and com- 
pares with a 6,000 billion lire 
surplus in 1980. 

Latest estimates for 1986 
suggest that the loss of 52 per 
cent of the US tourist market 
will produce a fell of 8 percent 
in foreign currency earnings or 
about 1,000 billion lire. 

What causes the 
collective folly? 

Despite this loss in dollar 
Inflow, tourist earnings for 
1986 are expected to remain at 
the same level as in 1985, but, 
as the Bank of Italy points out 
this is not a positive result. 
The felting dollar and ofl 
prices will do more to close the 
trade deficit for 1986 than 
tourism. 

Fortunately, the disastrous 
situation winch prevailed be- 
tween April and August ap- 
pears to be easing . Erut 
estimates that the year will 


dose with a 0.7 per cent 
increase in earnings, despite a 
drop in foreign visitors of 2.1 
percent. 

A 2.5 per cent increase in 
the number of Italians taking 
holidays at home, and rising 
numbers from countries such 
as Britain (up 10 per cent) and 
Japan (up 3 per cent) have 
provided a counterbalance. 

Alitalia, Pan Am and 
American Express all confirm 
that business is at last picking 
iqx Dr Giuseppe Sebasti, 
Alitalia's vice director of sales, 
said: '“We suffered a very 
serious loss of 25 per cent in 
US-Italy traffic between April 
and July. We have never had a . 
decrease of this amount 
before.” Alitalia had to cut 
capacity by .10 per cent 

Angelo Bettoia, chairman of 
FAIAT, said: “In 40 years as a 
hotelier I have never experi- 
enced a crisis of this son. It is 
not just terrorism that has 
made the US tourist abandon 
the European market, but a 


collective folly and we must 
find out what is causing this. 

“My big fear Is that, tike the 
start of any new vogue or 
fashion by a small minority, it 
will catch on. Rome, Venice 
are Florence are the national 
flags of tourism, but if the 
image of big cities is suddenly 
not as brilliant, we shall start 
to get a recession. This is 
where the risk lies.” This year 
15.6 per cent fewer people 
have visited those three cities.. 

In response to Signor 
Bettoia's concern, the 
hoteliers’ federation has initi- 
ated a research project ax 
Perugia university, in 
conjunction with other major 
universities such as New 
York's Cornell, to find out 
what is causing the decline. 

But Italians be reassured. A 
survey just published by the 
Pennsylvania Institute shows 
that after Denmark, Italy is 
the country where most 
Americans would like to live.

Companies of the ENI Group are always working 
towards this end in all continents of the world. 

Today, over one third of the total revenue of the Group is 
derived from sources outside Italy through the supply of 
goods and services, many of which, due to their advanced 
technology, have been incorporated into the industrialisation 
and development plans of many countries and which have 
also helped Italian products to penetrate those markets. 

ENI Group companies are involved in all aspects of the 
energy sector, including the chemical industry, engineering 
and services, mechanical manufacturing, textile machinery 
and textiles, along with mining and metallurgy. 


In some of the sectors, such as engineering and services

ITALY/7 


Why farming falls 
on thorny ground 



Anyone who thinks of Italian 
farming as an easy business in 
a sunny Mediterranean coun- 
try where everything grows is 
deeply mistaken. Nature has 
provided proportionately 
more mountains and difficult 
hilly ground than anywhere 
else in the European 
Community. 

Then man has complicated 
things by setting up the 
equivalent of more than 20 
ministries dealing with agri- 
culture throughout the 
country. 

The Ministry of Agriculture 
m Rome has overall authority, 
except for fisheries (Ministry 
of Merchant Marine) and 
animal health (veterinary 
department of the health min- 
istry). There was. therefore, 
little the minister could do 
beyond protest when Brussels 
decided to ban animal imports 
from Italy during a recent foot 
and mouth epidemic — it was 
his colleague at the health 
ministry who had to act on the 
decision. 

in other branches of agri- 
culture the effective voice is 
that of the .issessoraio or 
“Ministry" of Agriculture in 
each of the 20 regional govern- 
ments. Under the constitution 
“hunting, fishing in internal 
waters, agriculture and 
forestry" are among matters 
on which the regions legislate. 

This has encouraged the 
growth of local lobbies and 
pressure groups, amid a gen- 
erally politicized atmosphere. 

For years the Christian 
Democrats have bad a strong 
following among peasants and 
smallholders with their 
Colnvaion Dirctn organiza- 
tion. In areas where the left is 
strong the Communist-Social- 
ist Confcoltivaton are a force 
to be reckoned with. 

The third big farmers 
organization, Confagncoltura, 


claims to be non-political 
though it is a natural mouth- 
piece for the large and often 
technically more advanced 
farmers. 

It suns the politicians to 
keep holdings numerous and 
small — each Sinning family 
represents votes — and to 
retain farmers' loyalty with a 
policy of subsidies and hand- 
outs. Farmers come to take 
easy credit and cut-price facil- 
ities for granted. This is 
reflected in Brussels, where 
the Italians have the reputa- 
tion of being quick oft the 
mark in asking for aid 

The press writes of delib- 
erate overproduction of Sicil- 
ian oranges or Neapolitan 
tomatoes or of claims submit- 
ted for more olive trees de- 
stroyed by winter frost than 
were planted all for the sake of 
some national or European 
reimbursement. 

Officials at Confagncoltura 
are the first to criticize the 
politicized mentality and 
malpractices m the farming 
world. At the root of the 
trouble, they maintain, is the

three times its 
market value 9 

absence of a long-term govern- 
ment strategy that would give 
agnculture the same national 
priority as in northern 
Community countries. 

Any policy worthy of the 
name must take into account 
the diversified types of form- 
ing from hill to plain and from 
the temperate north to the arid 
south. The result is a frag- 
mented patchwork of holdings 
officially only an average 4.8 
hectares (about 11.9 acres) 
compared to 10.7 in Spain, 64 
in Britain and 160 in the US. 

Italy's 2,832,000 forms are 
10 times more numerous than 
Britain's 269,000. Out of the 
country's working population 
12.3 per cent are still on the 
land. 

These figures reflect a still 
backward and vulnerable agri-

culture. It is exposed to com- 
petition from the newer 
Community members, 
Greece. Spain and Portugal, 
though politically their in- 
terests coincide and, if they 
can speak with one voice, they 
can cany more weight in 
Brussels. 

Farmers' organizations ex- 
press more concern about the 
threat from other Mediterra- 
nean countries and, above all, 
from the US, whose protec- 
tionist tendencies are seen as 
more dangerous for Italy than 
for northern Europe. ■ 

For years agriculture has 
represented the second biggest 
deficit in the trade balance, 
after oil. But while the oil 
deficit is slackening the agri- 
cultural deficit has risen 
relentlessly from 5.068 billion 
lire in 1986 to more than 
17.000 billion lire (about £8.5 
million) now. 

Much of this is structural 
and difficult to reduce signifi- 
cantly. Confagricultura es- 
timates that 45 per cent is 
made up of commodities not 
produced at home (coffee, tea, 
cocoa, tropical fruits) or used 
by industry manufacturing for 
export (hides, cotton, wool) 
and another 14 per cent is 
subject to Community 
production ceilings (dairy pro- 
duce, sugar). 

In the last half of the 1970s 
the value of agricultural 
production rose by an average 
annual 2.7 per cent. Bui in the 
1980s it has been declining — 
by an estimated 1J per cent in 
real terms in 1985 and by 2.9 
percent in 1984. 

Yet, if these figures make 
discouraging reading, certain 
facts should not be forgotten. 
Italy remains second to 
France as agricultural pro- 
ducer in tbe Community, 
ahead of West Germany and 
Britain. It has the biggest wine 
output in the world, even if its 
reputation took a blow with 
the methanol scandal, which 
was confined to a limited area 
and a handful of producers. 

h is behind only the US as 
producer and exporter of fruit 
and vegetables, though orange 
and lemon exports to northern 
Europe are in serious decfine. 
Its 25 per cent Share of 
northern Europe's citrus fruit 
requirements in 1960 had 
fallen, according to 



Traditional and modern: a peasant woman i_ 
crop, and above, a spraying maching solves the t 


Confagncoltura, to 4 per cent 
in 1985. It is Europe's biggest 
producer of olive oil. 

On the micro-economic 
level, forming can be a highly 
successful and profitable busi- 
ness. In the Lombardy plain 
some dairy forms achieve 
milk yields claimed to com- 
pare with the best of those in 
the US. Among wines, 
Brunello of Montalcino in 
Tuscany would not have 
achieved its reputation but for 
the flair of individual vine- 
yard owners like the Biondi- 
Santi family and Donna 
Francesca Colombiai. 

A tast developing field 
is that of soya cultivation, in 
which Italy is now leader in 
Europe, while interesting 


experiments are under way in 
the south to grow the oil-rich 
jojoba tree from New Mexico. 
The list could go on. 

Sometimes Britons who buy 
a place in the Italian country- 
side are tempted into forming. 
They must be prepared for an 
expensive hobby. Sir Joseph 
Cheyne, curator of the Keats- 
Shelley memorial house in 
Rome, has 10.5 hectares in 
Umbria and, he said: "Every 
litre of olive oil I make costs at 
least three times its marked 
value.” His son has therefore 
branched into another activ- 
ity, running a horse-riding 
school it is sideline fields 
such as this that may offer 
prospects. 

JE 


Surviving the wine scandal 


The last thing tbe Italians wanted this spring 
was a wine scandal. Just as the finest and 
rarest Italian wines were at tast bringing 
worldwide respectability, credibility and pres- 
tige for their first division growers, the methyl 
alcohol crisis occurred — passably the most 
shocking the wine world has experienced. 

OversSgfet the worM's press was full of grim 
reports of Italy's distinctly dubious vinous past 
when substances as diverse as banana skins 
and ox Mood had found their way into Italian 
wine vats. Added to which were tbe horrific 
daily accounts of the methyl alcohol scandal 
that in the end resulted hi 21 known deaths. 

Methyl alcohol or methanol is a normal by- 
prod set of fermentation that can occur 
naturally op to a level of 0.5 grams a litre. The 
Italian limit is 0J grams a fibre for red wine 
and 0.25 grams for white. 

Methyl alcohol is not the same substance as 
ethyl alcohol, which the body can 
tolerate. Just 10 mUfifitres of methanol causes 
blindness in some, and 30 could be fatal. 

How Italian wine came to be contaminated 
with a known poison to lethal levels is still a 
question that has not been answered fully by 
the Italian authorities. 

The first producer to be implicated was 
Vincenzo Odore, a bottler in Piedmont whose 
two litre bottles of contain mated Barbers woe 
on sale in Italian supermarkets for ludicrously 
low prices. 

One of Signor Odore's suppliers was the 
Gravegna family, also based in Piedmont, 
which was apparently the major source of 
methanol-contaminated wine. Three other 
suppliers of these lethal wines — Signori 
Barondu, Bernard! and Fusco — were also 
named. 

Like Ciravegpa most of these firms were 
based in north-west Italy in Piedmont, but 
some of the contaminated wines came from the 
south. 

Ail of the methanol-laced wine was confined 
to tbe low priced, low quality level of the Italian 
wine market. At this end of the chain, wine is 
sold more on alcohol degree and cheapness of 
price ritun on any quality factor. 

Italian wine laws, unlike those of France, 
forbid chaptafization where sugar is added to 
tbe fomenting juke to increase the eventual 
alcohol degree of the wine. 

Disreputable, greedy Italian producers keen 
to increase a wine's alcohol degree and also its 
price have to resort to other methods. Hence 
the nse of methanol, which is both easy to add 
and use ad difficult to trace. :

Quality oflife and 
high income combine 
to malm Bologna an 
exceptional provincial 
town in which to live. 
Judith Parsons takes a 
closer look at this 
singular city 

What do torteilini, Bruno 
Magli shoes and the writer 
Umberto Eco all have in 
common? They are the prod- 
ucts of Bologna, the provincial 
capital of Emilia Romagna, 
Italy's hardest working region. 

Here, the bon temponi 
(good-time Charley) who 
works hard all day and enjoys 
relaxing ar night is no myth. 

Bologna's distinctive pink- 
brown palazzi and cobbled 
streets skirted with miles of 
gracefully arching porticoes 
still reverberate with a vigour 
and prosperity that refuses to 
be quenched. 

And, as if to confer some 
special distinction, two 12th 
century towers, the due tone 
of Asmelli and Garisenda, still 
tilt commas dingly over the 
heart of the city. 

Skilfully set into Bologna's 
Gothic and Renaissance past 
are rows of shops whose 
perfect windows bespeak 
monied shoppers and a Bo- 
lognese love of conspicuous 
consumption. 

In many ways the town, 
which has ; population of 
435,000, represents much that 
is attractive and typical of 
provincial life in Emilia-Ro- 
magna under a Communist 
local government 
Like neighbouring Modena, 
Parma and Reggio Emilia, 
Bologna has a high per capita 
income, ranking 13th in Italy. 
Modena is second. 

But tins- is only part of the 
■*” pictarfcin-tenns of quality of 


life — income, housing, trans- 
port, medical services and a 
healthy environment - Bo- 
logna is second to none in 
Italy, according to Profess or 
Stefano Zamagni. vice direc- 
tor of John Hopkins Univer- 
sity in the city. 

Like other towns in the 
region, Bologna has no serious 
unemployment problem, less 
than g per cent, compared to 
1 1 per cent for the rest of the 
country, and boasts the high- 
est rate of female employment 
in Italy. 

But it is the most expensive 
town to live in, according to 
the National Institute of 
Statistics, 1ST AT, followed by 
Parma, Piacenza, Modena and 

Rnrilra. 

The city has provided a 
pattern for economic develop- 
ment: the Bolognese model. 
The secret of its success has 
appare ntly been the combina- 
tion of a stable political 
environment — the Com- 
munist Party (PCI) has been 
in charge since the Second 
World War — the absence of 
heavy industry and the close 
inter-reaction of small and 
medium sized firms employ- 
ing between 50 and 500, a 
characteristic of the region. 

Mechanical engineering, the 
making of automated mar 
chine tools, pharmaceuticals 
and service industries domi- 
nate Bologna. 

Concentrated in an un- 
usually straight line along the 
old Roman Via Emilia, the 
factories look modem and 
well designed. 

While the agricultural tra- 
dition remains strong and 
Bolognese cuisine still excels, 
the farmer too is moving into 
newer and increasingly tech- 
nical pastures like genetic seed 
selection. 

Service industries are every- 
where in evidence, as 
Bologona is host to Italy’s 
third most important trade 
fair complex mid home of 
Europe’s oldest university. 

Specializing in law and 
medicine, the university has 
just started its 900th anniver- 
sary celebrations to 
commemorate foundation In 
1088.

Money galore for the arts 


Cultural life in Bologna is enjoying new 
for two reasons, the start of the 
mtirersfty’s 900th anniversary celebra- 
tions and' the sponsorship of cultural 
activities by big industry, which has 
suddenly come into vogue. 

“We have never had so much money to 
spend on culture before,”said Anna 
Ottani Carina, Professor of art histtxy in 
Bologna. IBM, Montedison and Olivetti 
are all giving generously. 

Bologna has long been an international 
cultural landmark and was a compulsory 
stop on the 19th century Grand Tour, 
although tourists today tend to speed 
throogh. 

Thanks to the collecting zeal of 
Napoleon, who dosed aB Bologna’s 
churches and convents, placing all works 
of art be did not sequester to Paris b a 
public mll ffth " — klflp M bow has in 


the Pinacoteca Nationals, in Via Belle 
Arti, one of Europe’s greatest concentra- 
tions of sacred paintings. 

“While Bologna was politically weak 
before the Risorgimento, it did have a 
strong cultural identity with two golden 
centuries of painting in the 14th and 17th 
centuries,” Professor Carina said. 
’These survived, doe mostly to the 


“The paiMiMgs suited the tastes of the 
19th century British public who liked the 
classical elegant style in contrast with 
say Caravaggio's dark and violent 
emotions,” said Professor Carina. 

Italy's most important exhibition this 
y edit “The age of Correggio and of 
Carracci, two centuries aT Bolognese 
Painting”, is now on show at Bologna’s 
Civic Museum of Archaeology. Or- 
ganized in major part by Professor 


Carina, the exhibition will go on to New 
York's Metropolitan Museum of Art and 
Washington's National Gallery. 

It marks the start of the university 
celebrations, which will include a musical 
festival in the spring and an exhibition of 
Guido Re ill's painting s. Exhibits of the 
university's 17th aid 18th century 
scientific and medical instruments and 
14th century filnminated manuscripts are 
also on the agenda. 

Since 1954 Bologna has organized a bi- 
annnal art celebration involving people 
like Francis HasltiU, Denis Mahon and 
the late Sir Anthony Blunt. “We have 
established a tradition here not easy to 
find elsewhere,” said Professor Carina. 
“We exploit what we have — fortunately, 
cultural activities are sometimes easier to 
organize in a provincial town.” 


population, the university 
plays a visible role in the city’s 
economic and cultural life. 

As Renzo Imbeni, 
Bologna's Communist may or, 
points out “We are fortunate 
not to have huge plants in the 
strategic sectors. Lacking this 
concentration we have not 
suffered the crisis of un- 
employment and labour 
problems.” It is this absence of 
heavy industry and powerful 


trade unions that has led to the 
city’s flourishing co-operative 
movement 

Bologna’s co-operatives 
capture the flavour and plural- 
ism of the region, for not only 
do they represent almost every 
sector of Bolognese life, but 
every political orientation 
within each sector — and all 
are competing for members. 

Co-operatives no longer 
simply sort out employees’ 


problems, but also offer tech- 
nical, computer and legal 
services. 

These organizations are fast 
becoming an economic force 
and many are moving onto the 
stock exhange. Unipol, a lead- 
ing insurance co-operative, is 
the latest example. 

“There is one big question 
mark feeing Bologna”, said 
Professor Zamagm. “Is the 
third technical revolution go-

The city plans to group

Research Council and the 
university's engineering facul- 
ties to create a “ Silicon 
Valley” south east of the town. 

“All that remains is for local 
authorities to devote funds 
and endow the area,” Profes- 
sor Zamagni said. 


On September 22, Bologna, 
which has thrived on a staple 
diet of unimerruped Com- 
munist Party rule since the 
war, had its first political crisis 
in more than 40 years. 

Renzo Imbeni, the Com- 
munist mayor, was forced to 
resign in an unprecedented 
response to pressure from the 
Socialist Party (PS1) in the 
city. 

Signor ImbenPs resignation 
was designed to create a 
situation that would ensure 
his return to office but with a 
considerably stronger Socialist 
presence in the local coalition 
government. 

On October 24 he was duly 
reinstated but accompanied, 
for the first time, by a 29-year- 
old Socialist deputy mayor, 
Enrico Boselli, and instead of 
holding all 16 seats in the 
Giunta, the municipal govern- 
ment, as before, the Com- 
munist Party (PCI) now has 
only 10, having relinquished 
five to the PSI and one to a 
Social Democrat 

At the regional level in 
Emilia Romagna, the PCI, 
with 26 of the 50 seats, still 
holds an absolute majority, 
compared to 29 out of 60 seats 
on the town council. 

At the last election the PSI 
won only seven of the 60 seats 
on the Bologna town council 
compared to the PCI’s 29. The 
new deal with the Com- 
munists is thus evidence that 
the Socialists are flexing their 
muscles locally as they are 
nationally - that is, capitaliz- 
ing on their small but crucial 
vote-swinging role in a co- 
alition government 

For the first time, in 
September, the PSI. com- 
monly regarded as the PCTs 
sister party in Bologna's local 
government coalition, joined 
the opposition, allegedly to 
oppose the latest Town Plan- 
ning Act but in reality to force 
the PCI to accept a new form 
of local government based on 
what Gabrielli Gherardi, lead- 
er of the Bologna PSI, calls 
pari digniia (equal dignity). 

Signor Gherardi said the 
PSI would continue to push 
for an equal division of the 16 
seats on the Giunta, irrespec- 
tive of its electoral strength- 


Had the Republican party 
joined the coalition, be said, 
the 50-50 division would have 
been achieved. 

To gain five seats where 
previously there were none is 
a notable achievement far 
Bologna's Socialists. Accord- 
ing to Marco Biagi. Professor 
of labour law at Modena 
University, this raises the 
controversial point as to 
whether the PCI can continue 
.to elect the mayor. 





Bologna's Communist 
mayor: Renzo Imbeni 

“Political life is beginning 
to change and minor parties 
are now the key issue of 
Bolognese politics”, be said. 

Opposition to any form of 
coalition government from 
the Christian Democrats re- 
mains strong; the party 
continues to exclude any form 
of collaboration with the PCI, 
preferring to head an alter- 
native coalition. 

“After the last election it 
was dear that the PCI could 
no longer run by itself in terms 
of votes,” Professor Biagi said. 
“It has had no choice but to 
establish new dialogue with 
other political parties. Every- 
one thought the Communists 
would run the city forever, 
certainly until the end of the 
century, but this is changing 
very quickly.”

Nearly a thousand perished in the Friuli 
earthquake: this is how the rest survived 



Italians received a bad 
press for the failures in 
reconstruction after two 
earthquakes in the South. 

In Friuli, by contrast, 
much has been achieved. 
John Earle reports 

For five days this month 
inhabitants of the earthquake- 
prone zone of centra] Friuli 
once again saw tented camps 
with uniformed Red Cross 
volunteers, stretchers being 
readied for casualties, and 
ambulances speeding along 
country roads. 

This was the area near 
Udine in north-east Italy 
where a shock on May 6, 1976 
killed 989, injured more than 
3,000 and made 100,000 
homeless. A further shock the 
following September de- 
stroyed many buildings that 
had remained precariously 
standing . 

Only this time the Red 
Cross presence was because of 
an exercise involving 650 of 
its workers from all north 
Italy, with 200 vehicles, 
including 100 ambulances and 
a helicopter. From their four 
camps they simulated remov- 
ing people from ruins and, 
with the help of a computer, 
transporting 400 injured in 
one day to hospital. “It was," 
said Marcello Giuffiida, na- 
tional coordinator of Red 
Cross volunteers, “designed to 
test our operational experi- 
ence. We only hope never to 
have to put our experience 
into practice on such a scale 
again." 

In feet, tremors are anything 
but rare in Friuli — a minor 
one lent a touch of realism to 
the exercise — and a major 
earthquake seems to occur 
every 200 or 250 years. With 
an eye to the future, the 
participants carried out a sur- 
vey among 1,000 families. 


Italy 's unification was no longer a dream 
but Banco di Sicilia was already a reality. 


Having inherited the experience of the first “Public 
Benches' active in the Kingdom of Sicily since the I5th 
century. Banco di Sicilia was, already in 1860, one of 
the most important banks in the Kingdom of Italy, to 

an extent that it continued to issue paper money on 

behalf of the Italian State up to 1926. 

Nowadays Banco di Sicilia isatthesametimearegion- 
al, national and international bank operating in the 
short and medium term, with 347 branches through- 
out Italy, foreign branches in Frankfurt London.

fices h Brussels, Budapest Chicago. Munich. Shgapore 
and Zurich.

submitting questionnaires 
ranging from their needs in 
medicines and baby foods to 
their living patterns and 
possibilites of evacuation to' 
relatives or friends outside the 
area. 

With such information in- 
stantly available, it should be 
possible to avoid mistakes 
such as those after the Naples 
earthquake of 1980, when 
well-wishers sent tons of aid 
that was not really needed. 

In Friuli, few visible signs of 
the disaster remain. Officially, 
more than 90 per cent of 
reconstruction has been com- 
pleted. In most places it was 
decided to rebuild as before, 
along the same street {dans, 
with the houses retaining their 
picturesque overhanging Al- 
pine roofs. 

It has been an opportunity 
to provide proper drainage 
and other modem facilities, 
such as the gas being brought 
to many localities from the

from the Soviet Union. Anti- 
seismic standards are applied 
in rebuilding to the extent, 
local adminis trators say, that 
next time it should be safer to 
stay at home than rush out of 
doors. 

Of 75,000 bouses damaged, 
73,500 have been repaired. Of 
18,000 destroyed, 16,500 have 
been rebuilt. About 6,000 
people are still living in pre- 
fabricated huts, of the 77,000 
who spent the first winter in 
them. 

The figures are given by 
Roberto Dominid, the Chris- 
tian Democrat assessore or 
" minis ter" for reconstruction 
in the Friuli-Venezia Giulia 
regional government, who 
emphasizes that the policy 
was to help people with public

what has not been done in the 
Belice valley of Sicily after

area after 1980. 

Friuli has not been immune 
from scandal, however. The 
Christian Democrat mayor of 
a village spent four years in 
prison for receiving 12 million 
lire (then about £8,000) from a 
manufacturer of prefabs. But 
this is on a small scale 
compared to reports of what 
has gone on in the South. 

The 10 per cent of 
reconstruction still outstand-

of the nut to crack. Those still 
living in prefabs include the 
people without resources to 

build a home. There is also the

New TV laws 
spark battle 
on the air 



The anarchic development of 
Italian television has often 
provided more colourful and 
compelling viewing than 
many of the programmes 
transmitted. 

Later this year Italy expects 
io introduce for the first tin-™* 
in 10 years regulations 
governing television, a move 
which will guarantee further 
instalments of tense viewing. 

The new regulations will 
finally allow commercial tele- 
vision operators to inter- 
connect transmissions and 
create the country’s first pri- 
vate national networks, 
broadcasting live news and 
sport. But tied to the rulings 
are several anti-trust clauses 
certain to rock the airwaves. 

Until now, only RAL, the 
state-^wned broadcasting 
organization, has had network 
status providing live news 
coverage. Apart from this one 
stipulation, Italy' has re- 
mained regulation-free since 
1976 after a court decided that 
a RAI monopoly was no 
longer constitutional 

The upshot was that anyone 
who wanted to start a TV 
station could do so, the only 
proviso being -that trans- 
mission be limited to the 
ambito locale— just how local 
was never defined — and that 
no live news be broadcast 
This would remain the prerog- 
ative of RAI and the political 
parties! 

The immediate result was 
the rise and fall of scores of 
private stations, which soon 
fell prey to a handful of 
professional operators, most 
notably - Silvio Berlusconi, 
now owner of the world’s most 
successful network outside the 
United States. 

Italy's - skeletal legislation 


and the influence of the 
political parties have suc- 
ceeded in striking a balance 
between private and public 
television that has so far, 
prevented either RAI or Si- 
gnor Berlusconi from stealing 
the whole show. 

Italy has about 10 national 
chann els dominated by Rai 
Uno, Doe and Tie and 
matched by Silvio 
Berlusconi's three commercial 
channels, Canale 5, Rete 4, 
and Italia '1. The smaller 
private channels include 
EuroTV, a syndicate headed 
by Calisto Tanzi, 
TeJemomecario, go per cent 
owned by the Brazilian Gkibo 
group in Montecado, Rete A, 
and Capodistria for Yugoslav 
speakers in Italy's north east. 
In . addition, every major city 
has at least eight private local 
stations. On average an Italian 
viewer receives 23 channels. 

It is impossible to ignore 
Signor Berlusconi’s impact on 
these channels. In eight years 
he has changed from Being the 
proprietor of a local Milan TV 
station transmitting from the 
Pirelli skyscraper, to owning 
the world's most successful 
network outside the US big 
three. In 1980 be earned 12 
billion lire from advertising. 

Absolutely anyone 
can start a station 

So far this year he has made 
1,350 billion lire (about £675 
million). 

He is also Italy’s leading 
builder, responsible for the 
Milano 2 housing complex. 
His Fininvest group, which 
includes the TV operations, 
employs 6,400. 

There is little doubt that 
Signor Berlusconi's dose ties 
with Bettino Craxi, the Prime 
Minister — once the leading 
Socialist in Milan — and his 
Socialist Party have assisted 
his operations. 

Adriano general 

manager of Signor 
Berlusconi’s TV division said:, 
“In 1979 we realized private’

Berlusconi flanked by his commercial manager Christophe Riboad, left, and vice president 
Jfefime Seydoux, right, announcing the arrival last year of the new French TV channel, Le 
Cinq, before the reversals of tire Chirac regime 


TV could only survive at a 
national level" The law al- 
lowed only local transmission 
but Signor Berlusconi’s artful 
circumvention by creating “an 
illusion of a network” proved 
inspired. 

He invented the pizzone 
system, whereby complete 
days of pro g r am ming and 
commercials were put on cas- 
sette, sent to his 15 stations 
around the country and 
broadcast simultaneously — 
creating the same effect as a 
network-In 1980 he set up 
Canale 5 based on this 
concept 

The integration of produc- 
tion into five divisions han- 
dling everything in-house was 
again inspired. Fininvest even 
purchased or rented 1,500 
tr ansmiss ion points through- 


out Italy at a cost of 150 
billion me. 

“This is where other private 
ventures such as Mondadori’s 
Rete 4 and Emilio Rusconi's 
Italia 1 went wrong,” Signor 
Gafliani said. “They de- 
pended on other companies 
for aspects of technical 
production. This proved 
disastrous.” In *982 Signor 
Berlusconi bought Italia 1 and 
in 1984, Rete 4. 

“It is no longer possible to 
expand in Italy, we must look 
outride.'' Signor Gafliani said. 
However, so far Fminvesfs 
negotiations for channels on 
various European satellites 
have met with mixed results. 

Silvio Berlusconi’s foray 
into French- televirion has 
been described by one Italian 
TV operator as “too clever by 
half” His 40 per cent purchase 


of Le Cinq, France’s first 
.private commercial channel 
and hopes for two channels on 
the TDF1 satellite, while wel- 
comed by President 
Mitterrand’s Socialist govern- 
ment in 1985, has been con- 
demned to death by the 
present Chirac regime. 

Monsieur Chirac has called 
for a review, terrestially and 
celestially, of Le Cinq's opera- 
tions ana Signor Berlusconi's 
18-year concession will ter- 
minate prematurely in early 
1987. 

Signor Galliani sakh“If we 
don't continue with Le Cinq 

against ^nc^^WCT^ 
ment for 18 years' lost 
revenues.” 

Signor Berlusconi is also 
negotiating for a slot on a 


The paradox 
about Italian 
television is 
not the growth 
of private TV 
but resilience 
of the public 
service RAI. 
With virtually 
no regulations 
so far, private 
TV is free to 
do anything 
it wants 


German satellite with the TV 
stations ZDF and ARD, and 
would like a place on the 
Luxembourg Astra satellite. In 
Spain, Fininvest is preparing 
for the start-up of three 
commercial channels in 1987 
with’ the purchase of Estudios 
Roma, a production centre, 
for 10 billion lire. 

But the anticipated regula- 
tions are expected to bring 
important changes at home, 
for Signor Berlusconi may not 
be able to transmit five news 
on all three of his channels. 
The Christian Democrats are 
pushing for a single news 
broadcasting c hann el, prob- 
ably Canale 5, while the 
Socialists argue he should 
retain at least two channels 
which operate as fully fledged 
networks, transmitting live 1 
television. 


RMTUttBnaiytMH 


“ The most probable out- 
come will be that we retain 
two live networks and keep 
the third as before — rather 
like having two daily news- 
papers and one weekly," Si- 
gnor Galliani said. 

The rationale is simple. Of 
RAIs three networks only RAl 
Uno and Due command any 
real audience. If Signor 
Berlusconi has three major 
networks providing news, the 
balance would be unequal 

“The great paradox about 
Italian television is not the 
growth of private TV," says 
Massimo Fichera, deputy 
director of RA(“but the resil- 
ience of the public service.” 

For the first time in three 
years, on October 9, Rai 
eventually appointed a Social- 
ist president, Enrico Manca 
and a board of directors. 

“With no regulation, pri- 
vate TV stations can do 
anything they want, but RAI 
has political programming 
obligations to parliament and 
the regions. Unlike commer- 
cial TV we are obliged to reach 
every part of Italy, however 
remote. In fact we have had all 
the conditions necessanr for a 
screen blackout" Signor 
Fichera said. 

“Instead we have succeeded 
in changing the way we do our 
programming and produce 70 
per cent of our own 
programmes.” 

In the past RAI has been 
criticized for presenting end- 
less political broadcasts and 
for corruption. But these mask 
a quietly impressive escala- 
tion in operations, especially 
in Europe, which in many 
ways outshine Signor 
Berlusconi's well-publicized 
manoeuvres 

“When the anti-monopoly 


laws of 1976 came into play, 
we had to accept the decision 
and moved into a free market 
situation, so we purchased 10 
per cent of Telemontecario”, 
Signor Fichera said. 

“We invest more in inter- 
national co-productions than 
any other TV station in 
Europe”. 

A three-year European ven- 
ture between Channel 4, 
Intenne 2, ZDF. Austria TV 
Swiss TV and RAl will start 
producing major series this 
year on a par with US produc- 
tions. For 1986, RAI sank 100 
billion lire into the project, 
next year this will double. 

“The TV series market is 
dominated by the US and we 
believe there is only one 
reason for this: they have such 
big markets and can produce 
at high level costs. If we join 
together as a group in Europe, 
we can achieve a similar 
market,” Signor Fichera said. 

All the conditions 
for total blackout 

Conveniently one of the 
awaited rulings now states 
that 40 per cent of films on 
Italian TV must be of Euro- 
pean origin. 

In the satellite field RAI has 
the edge, for the moment, over 
Signor Berlusconi, with a 
channel on the point-to-point 
ECS satellite in co-operation 
with Belgium. Switzerland 
and Luxembourg. RAl Uno is 
broadcast and has been re- 
ceived by cable every day in 
these countries for the past 
year. 

At the last Venice Film 
Festival seven out of the ten 
Italian films shown were RAI 
productions and two of them 
won first and second prizes.

Under fire it may be, but the ; 1 
Italian approach to education J| 
still clings to a broad culture §| 


This year’s opening of the 
academic year at Milan's 
Bocconi University ended 
with a performance at La 
Scala of sonatas for cello and 
piano by Debussy, Beethoven 
and Brahms. This might seem 
out of place for what is JaigeJy 
a highly efficient centre for 
studies in the field of business 
and the economy, but it says a 
lot for the Italian approach to 
education in a technological 
age. 

The Italian educational sys- 
tem is normally under fire and 
too frequently subjected to 
fitful reforms which are 
disturbing more than 
constructive. But it has main- 
tained a distinction rare in 
highly industrialized 
countries. 

Scientists and executives 
working in advanced technol- 
ogy are expected to lake with 
them a certain amount of 
general culture along with 
their expertise. 

Professor Luigi Guatri, the 
Bocconi’s rector, said at the 
beginning of the university's 
84th academic year that “the 
fundamental point is that of a 
balance between fundamental 
culture and specialist culture, 
between culture tout court and 
professional training”. 

The university believed in 
the need for an adequate 
cultural base “without which 
any course of training appears 
ephemera] and limiting”, he 
said. 

The subject is certainly 
open to calmer discussion 
now that the eruptions of the 
student movements which 
challenged the whole system 
1 5 years ago are now well in 
the past and studying has 
become a a normal state of 
affairs again. 

Comparisons "are readily 
made with executives in the 
US or other European coun- 
tries. including Britain, where 
increasingly the conversation 
turns around the company 
and its products — to say 
nothing, of course, of Japan. 
The Italian cultural field re- 
mains broader. 

One of the strongest critics 
of the educational system is 
Gianni Agnelli. Fiat’s chair- 
man. who sees it as too little 
geared to the requirements of 
modem living. 

Speaking at a meeting in 
Mantua organized by the 
Confederation of Industry ear- 
lier this month, he said that 
the state system needed a 
strong dose of competition. 

The ideal, he said, should be 
a school which no longer had 
need of intermittent reform 
but had within itself the 
capacity to evolve in a way 
parallel to the country's 
development The risk he saw 
in inadequate education was 
that development would not 
be supported by the necessary

forces of intelligence and 
professionalism. 

This would mean enlarging 
the gap between supply and 
demand in the case of young 
people looking for work, and 
would risk losing the fun- 
damental cultural baas of 
Italian society. 

Enlar gin g on this point, he 
said:“Ilalian education has al- 
ways taken as its point of 
reference elevated values of 
culture and human qualities. 
It is important that these 
values are not lost but instead 
that they penetrate technologi- 
cal society and build the basis 


for economic and civil 
progress” 

What Signor Agnelli was 
saying reflects a long Italian 
tradition. Italy's National Re- 
search Council, fen* instance, 
once presided over by Mar- 
coni, remains strictly inter- 
disciplinary. 

Its present president, Luigi 
Rossi Bemardi, a Cambridge 
PhD, is professor ofbiological 
chemistry az Milan university 
and, while seeking to bring its 
work closer to the require- 
ments of the modem scientific 
world, he jealously guards the 
council's responsibilities in 


such fields as the study of 
Etruscan and Phoenician 
remains. 

The council has 11 national 
committees under its aegis 
and, while their function is to 
advise on developments in 
chemistry, physics and 
mathematical sciences, tech- 
nological research, biology 
and medicine, they are also 
working in history, philos- 
ophy and jurisprudence. 

Carlo de Benedetti, chair- 
man of Olivetti, a company 
famous for its achievements 
in industrial design, has put 
on record his belief drat the 


Italians are the best suited .^S 
people in Europe to face up to' I "7 
die changes which the applica- • j* 
don of high technology must ~ 
bring. ~ 

If that is to remain true, the 'Z 
educational system will have | 

to undergo revision, or be ; 

allowed, as Signor Agnelli > . 

proposed, to adapt by osmosis I 

to the requirements ofsociety. 

The dangers of failure are: ^-*- .>.■ 

dear enough. Full success, if ZZ2Z :• 
that should ever come about, - 

would make Italy the foremost 
country among those most.*.*?*

The divisions in 
the Church 
facing the Pope 




•'" 6 ? ' 



W t arojH- 


Iwlian Catholics must have 
felt more intimately than 
members in any other na- 
tional church the changes in 
field of religion over the 
20 years. 

The unquestioned position 
of privilege as the accepted 
religion of the state vanished, 
with a lot of other things,’ in 
the wake of the Second Vati- 
can Council while the Pope 
himself, for the first time in 
half a millennium, is no longer 
an Italian. 

The feet that the Polish 
pontiff is a great international 
personality cannot altogether 
make up For what the Italians 
feel they have lost 

The old relationship was 
easy. Italian popes were re- 
garded certainly as head of the 




1^ 


Universal Church but they 
would have been known to 
Italians before their election 
and looked on, by Catholics, 
after reaching the papacy, as 
the prelate first in the Italian 

nlace

The Pontiff and his priests: He cannot altogether make up 
for what the Italians fed they have lost 


dards, but to the Italian mind 
it was a fair guarantee at least 
of an understanding of Italy's 
ways. 

John XXm, who called the 
Second Vatican Council, was 
not only closely attached to 
his peasant origins in the 
north but he achieved every- 
thing that people used to say 
only a foreign pope could do. 
And Paul VI used an essen- 
tially skilfill diplomatic han d 
to keep the Church both in 
Italy and elsewhere intact after 
a council which had opened so 

man y new paths that schisms 

might easily have taken place. 

An example of what a 
Catholic feels now is provided 
by the decision announced 
earlier this month by the 
Vatican to cut down the 
number of bishoprics in Italy 
by about 100 to a total of little 
more than 200. 

This measure was not of 
shattering importance to the 
ordinary Catholic. Some 
towns protested but in feet 
many of the dioceses now 
abolished had in feet been 
joined to neighbouring di- 
oceses by the expedient of 
appointing the same .prdale to 
be bishop of more than one 
diocese. 

But it must have struck 
T rahans as odd to see in the 
press alongside the news sto- 
ries announcing the changes, a 
photograph of the Pope, who 
is a Pole, and was in France at 
the time, where he was speak- 
ing of the Curt d'Ars as the 
ideal model for the priest- 
hood, and Cardinal Gan tin, 
who is in charge of the 
department at the Vatican 
dealing with bishops, and is an 
African from Cotonou. 

The new diocesan bound- 
aries were formally commu- 
nicated to the Italian 
government through the Min- 
lkry of Foreign Affairs. 

This is a long way from the 
complaints which used to be 
heard of too great an Italian 
hold on the church as a whole. 

Now the relationship has 
moved full circle and Italian 
efforts at bringing the ex- 
pression of their religion into 
line with modem require- 



ments are much the same as 
elsewhere. But with one 
overwhelming exception: they 
have the Pope following 
everything that they are doing 
from dose quarters and not 
always with a contented gaze. 

The Pope is, moreover, in 
formal terms more closely 
involved in Italian religious 
affairs not simply by being 
Pope and Bishop of Rome but 
also because he is Primate of 
Italy. 

The Italian National Con- 
ference of Bishops is the only 
one in the Catholic world 
which cannot choose its own 
chairman. The habit has been 
to give to the Pope three 
names of personalities the 
bishops would like to see as 
their rbairman and the Pope 
himself was left to make the 
final choice. 

The present Pope radically 
change d that by rejecting all 
three names presented to him 

and appointing Chairman of 

the conference Cardinal 
Poletti, the prelate who repre- 
sents him, with no peat 
distinction, as his Vicar for the 
Rome diocese. 

The Cardinal has seen his 
role as primarily a disciplinary 
one with the result that he can 
in no way be regarded as the 
channel by which the feelings 


A forest of hands seeking a blessing from the 
Pope as he drives through St Peter’s Square. 
His personality makes Catholics proud 


of the bishops reach the pope: 
his activities are in the opp- 
osite direction. 

This controlling band is 
being applied at a time when 
practising Catholics are hav- 
ing to adapt their thinking to a 
•new situation in their country, 
which is something quite sepa- 
rate from their relationship 
with the hierarchy. 

The practising Catholic in 
many cases now feels a mem- 
ber of a minority group and 
not part of the powerful 
institution with important 
political and social connota- 
tions which was what the 
Church used to be. 

The new position is in- 
dicated clearly try the re- 
visions to the 1929 concordat 
in February 1984, which de- 
leted such time-honoured con- 
cepts as Catholicism as the 
religion of the state and Rome 
as a city of sacred character as 
Catholicism's capi tal- 

Tbe principal reaction to 
this new situation has been a 
division of opinion on the 


Church's modem role along 
two main lines. The first sees 
this role, following the end of 
the old monolithic character, 
as a task of evangelical exam- 
ple based on the idea that 
practising Catholics in a secu- 
larized world must be the salt 
of the earth, without laying 
claim to the earth itself! 

The second line is for a 
more aggressive insistence on 
the Catholic presence in pub- 
lic life, with the aim of making 
as much as possible of that life 
recognizably Catholic. 

There are other elements. 
There is, for instance, an 
appetite for the supernatural 
Stories are more frequent in 
the newspapers of persons 
who claim to have seen vi- 
sions or experienced miracles. 

There is, for instance, a fast- 
growing cult in Italy of the 
alleged apparitions of the Vir- 
gin Mary said to appear to 
peasant children in a Yugo- 
slav village near Mostar. 
There is also an unexpectedly 


strong charismatic move- 
ment. 

But essentially the line of 
division is between those who 
fed that Catholics must take 
their pan as an inspiring 
element in society and the 
others who feel that society 
should be recognizably 
Catholic. 

The Pope himself makes no 
secret of his preference for the 
second set of ideas. One of the 
“real assets of his personality 
tS the way he make Catholics 
proud of their religion because 
of the prestige he enjoys on the 
international scene. A cor- 
ollary of that is that they 
should want to be conspicuous 
too, in their humbler way. 

There can be no doubt that 
the Pope, coming from his 
Polish experience of a Church 
which must constantly be 
defending its interests as 
virtually the conscience of the 
state, sees the Italian epis- 
copate as too little seen and 
heard on the public stage. And 


this in a country which he sees 
to be suffering acutely from 
permissiveness and 
secularization. 

At the Italian Church's na- 
tional assembly held at Loreto 
in April 1985 he severely 
criticized the state of Italian 
society as a victim of “de- 
christianization in its mental- 
ity and behaviour, through the 
spread of practical materi- 
alism, to which is added the 
cultural and political weight of 
atheist ideals." 

He shocked many of his 
listeners more when he re- 
vived an appeal which had not 
been beard for some 20 years 
for the political unity of 
Catholics. This could only 
have meant in practice united 
backing for the Christian 
Democrats, which was the 
Church's position before John 
XXIII tried to wean the 
hierarchy away from political 
involvement. 

The present Pope must have 
felt strongly the need to de- 
liver such a message because 
one of the opening reports to 
the assembly had clearly spo- 
ken of backing for a party as 
likely to do “incalculable 
harm” to the credibility of the 
Christian message.

STRUCTURE 
of the SYSTEM 


A .T.M. is structured in a 
way allowing it to carry 
out autonomously all the 
activities related to the op- 
eration of ihe system, from 
^vehicles and facilities main- 
tenance, to personnel 
selection and training. 

Moreover, the structure in- 
cludes research and 
designing departments im- 
plementing such tasks as 
planning of transportion 
networks and system 
technology. 

As for planning in particu- 
lar. the relevant know-how 
acquired by the Undertak- 
ing is systematically 
employed by the Municipal 
Authorities of Milan in de- 
fining the mobility plans. 

The area serviced 
A.T.M. includes Milan an< 
86 surrounding towns, with 
an overall extension of 
1.086 sq. km and 3,000,000 
inhabitants. 

Within the town, A.T.M. is 
, ihe sole public transporta- 
tion ‘system. while outside it 
operates together with na- 
tional and regional railway 
lines as well as with other 
transportation companies. 

The size of the system and 
the Importance of the ser- 
vices supplied are 
summarised by the follow- 
ing data: 

The. major present charac- 
teristic of A.T.M. is a full 
integration of all the differ- 
ent means of transportation. 

Each line fulfills its own 
5 lask-and is harmonised with 
all the others. Such task is 
{ not necessarily determined 
! by the sole need of conneei- 
; ing a given origin with a 
| given destination. 

lOwing to the structure of 
the System, the transport de- 
mand can thus be met with 
, a combined use of different 
j lines as welL In order to re- 
! lievc the user of any 
! problem related to line 
: changes during his travel, a 
zonal fere system was devel- 
oped This svsiem allows 
the jiser to utilise any type 
or number of lines, accord- 
ing ?o his own needs, wthm 
the space and time limns of 
; his nickel. 

For example; Milan consti- 
tutes one fare zone, its 


limits are those of the ad- 
ministrative boundaries of 
the town. At present, the 
time validity of the regular 
ticket within this zone is of 
75 minutes. 

As a result, the user has the 
whole network at his dis- 
posal and within this 
network he is free of choos- 
ing the transport mode 
(lines, means, timetable) that 
suits better his needs. 

The integration of the net- 
work began in 1970 and 
yielded an immediate return 
of traffic, which had been 
constantly decreasing up to 
that time under the pressure 
of competing private vehi- 
cles, which no conventional 
measure had proved fit to 
withstand. 

Today the market share of 
A.T.M. within Milan equals 
an average 50% of the over- 
all people circulation, 70% if 
related to traffic during rush- 
hours when trips for work 
purpose are more 
concentrated. 

The integration allowed to 
simplify remarkably the lay- 
out of the network and made 
possible the concentration of 
an important share of the 
traffic on lines with greater 
capacity, the underground 
lines in particular. Nowa- 
days. these lines alone cover 
42% of the traffic of the 
whole urban network. 


DEVELOPMENT 

PLANS 


T he development plans 
are grouped under a 
Transport Plan for the met- 
ropolitan area of Milan. 
This Plan was approved in 
1979 and will coordinate 
the development of the 
A.T.M. network until 1990. 
This plan provides the final 
structure underlying the 
integration strategy that will 
involve in the future the re- 
gional railway network and 
the individual means as 
welL 


Among the implementa- 
tions provided for, the 
extension of the under- 
ground network stands out 
Works for a third line have 
started in 1983. This line, 
together with the two exist- 
ing ones (for which a series 
of Extensions is under com- 
pletion), will form the 
supporting mesh of the pub- 
lic transport network. The 
overall extension of the sys- 
tem will be of 75 km. 
According to forecasts 
drawn from traffic alloca- 
tion models, over 50% of 
users may utilise the under- 
ground network for their 
trips or parts of them. 

Finally, the suburban sta- 
tions of the network will be 
provided with transfer areas 
including free and with at- 
tendant car parking spaces 


and bus stations, in order to 
stop part of the vehicle flow 
at the limits of the core of 
the system, thus curbing 
congestion in the town. 

For the preparation of the 
Plan, A.T.M. made an inde- 
pendent survey on transport 
demand; its analysis and the 
consequent network project 
were included in the Plan 
itself after assessing any al- 
ternative hypothesis with a 
minimum of feasibility. 

It was used software with 
original models for the anal- 
ysis of traffic flows, network 
tload and amount of re- 
sources required to manage 
the system. 

This application results 
from studies that began in 
1964 and have been subse- 
quently thought over and 
perfected both for A.T.M.’s 
system and other towns in 
Italy and abroad. In this 
sector, A.T.M. carries out 
data processing on its own 
as well as with the coopera- 
tion of other companies or 
public agencies. Studies 
were accomplished for net- 
works of some 20 towns. 
The most significant exam- 
ples are those of Genua, 
Bologna, Alexandria in 
Egypt-

mum network, the research 
activity of A.T.M. has also 
developed within the area 
of vehicles and installations 
technology, with the sole 
purpose of improving the 
services provided as well as 
its own production 
organisation. 

The most recent example 
in this field of application 
is provided by the con- 
tribution given in the study 
and experimentation of 
dual-mode trolley-buses, 
equipped with a double 
traction system: electric 
and dieseL The aim is bet- 
ter relationship with the 
environment, still retaining 
that flexibility characteris- 
tics that make the 
conventional bus an indis- 
pensable vehicle today. 
A.T.M. in particular is con- 
cerned with the 
experimentation of various 
prototypes, constructed in 
Italy as well as in many Eu- 
ropean countries (within 
the scope of the COST 303 
plan by the EEC). A.T.M. 
has designal an automatic 
performance parameters re- 
cording equipment that can' 
be used on these prototypes 
as well as on any other type 
of vehicle. 


OPERATION 


I n the course of its evo- 
lution, A.T.M. has 
virtually been dealing with 
any problem related to its 
activity, from the differ- 
ences between urban and 
suburban service, to the 
growth of congestion levels, 
to the setting up of new sys- 
tems with special 
characteristics and require- 
ments, such as the 
underground railway. 


On every occasion, A.T.M. 
has defined the relevant so- 
lutions by tailoring its 
system to the new require- 
ments, and also by 
coordinating its action with 
that of other public under- 
takings entrusted with the 
control of systems related 
to public transportation 
(circulation planning and 
regulating in particular). 

This allowed A.T.M. to de- 
velop an internal 

organisation capable of im- 
plementing, besides routine 
tasks, (drawing up of time- 
tables mid personnel shifts) 
studies on circulation prob- 
lems and traffic control 
The organisation of this 
sector recently underwent a 
series of measures aimed at 
ving the production 
ency. 


Today all A.T.M. lines are 
run by one driver per vehi- 
cle (or train in the case of 
underground lines), thus 
greatly relying on the 
safety and reliability of 
automated systems. 


All efforts are now focused 
on a further improvement 
of the circulation condi- 
tions by allocating a 
network of reserved lanes. 
A system that allows to de- 
tect the position of a 
vehicle automatically is 
also being experimented in 
order to achieve a more 
accurate control on a regu- 
lar running. 


On another front, a series 
of initiatives has been 
launched to inform the 
present and potential us- 
ers, with the purpose of 
encouraging the use of 
public transport especially 
in the most congested ar- 
eas. A.T.M. has promoted 
its own surveys among the 
public to assess their 
expectations, as well as ad- 
vertising campaigns with 
the relative evaluation of 
the effects.

STRUCTURE 

A .T.M. has shaped its 
organisation since ihe be- 
ginning in such a way 
that it could provide for the 
maintenance of the means re- 
quired for ihe service 
autonomously. 

Today it has 21 depots, 4 general 
workshops for ihe vehicles, to- 
gether with departments for 
installations maintenance. 

This sector also includes the is- 
suing of specifications for 
vehicles and subsystems, quality 
assurance at the manufacturer's, 
final trials and tests on vehicles 
and parts before putting them in 
service. For the two last sectors, 
two laboratories for materials 
and component parts testing 
were set up. 

Moreover. A.T.M. avails itself 
of the experience acquired from 
the operation and research car- 
ried out to define the projects 
and to implement on its own 
some special system such as: 

- Signalling and remote control 
installations for the under- 
ground railway; 

- power supply plants: 

- installations for tram-cars and 
trolley-buses: 

- layouts for depots and work- 
shops, including equipment 
the size of which is determined 
according to maintenance 
schedules; 

This experience has also been 
utilised outside A.T.M. for stud- 
ies ordered by other concerns. 
An example of this provided by 
the cooperation of AT.M. in 
determining the size of power 
supply networks and vehicle 
performance on behalf of some 
of the leading national 
industries. 

Along with the development in 
technology, education, training, 
refresher courses are carried on 
■for the personnel. For this pur- 
pose. the most suitable teaching 
techniques are adopted with re- 
lation to the tasks which the 
personnel will fulfill as well as 
with regard to their initial 
knowledge. 

The structure of the school also 
includes trainer desks that simu- 
late the various apparatuses and 
a production centre for audiovi- 
sual systems. 

T he creation of a public 
transport system implies 
the solving oai of numer- 
ous technical and organisation 
problems which often are compli- 
cated by a limited availability of 
resources, and have to be utilised 
with maximum profitability. 
AT.M. puts at the disposal of 
other concerns, or public authori- 
ties. its own experience and 
organisation, as well as the ex- 
perience acquired by its 

pcrsonneL 

Its cooperation can range from 
the general layout of the system to 
the solving out of special tech- 
nical problems, and this for all 
conventional transport systems; 
underground railways, tramlines, 
buses and trolley-buses.

Prixno Levi is one of literature’s great story 
tellers, a writer whose earliest and most 
recent works have dealt with his past as a 
persecuted Jew and inmate of Auschwitz. 
Above, the entrance to the former 
concentration camp, with its notorious 
slogan, “Work liberates”, and, left, the 
author at his Turin home last week 


P rimo Levi's writings 
have taken a longer 
time to gain wide 
recognition in the 
English-speaking 
world than did those of some 
other recent or contemporary 
Italian authors, tike Ignazio 
Silone or Italo CaJvino. 

Perhaps the subject matter 
of his earliest writings, on 
Auschwitz and the material 
and moral ruins of Europe at 
the collapse of Nazism, ap- 
peared too grim for most 
tastes. 

If This is a Man was written 
by' the 28-year-old Levi in 
1947, immediately after his 
return from Auschwitz. Its 
taut and direct language con- 
veys his urgent sense of the 
need to communicate to the 
wider world the human 
significance of the shame of 
the extermination camp. 

Its successor. The truce 
( 1 963), the moving and some- 
times boisterously humorous 
sioiy of the odyssey of the 
Italian survivors of Auschwitz

country, established Levfs 
reputation in Italy as a. major 
literary figure, with a taste lor 
story-telling, a profound faith 
in human dignity and a capac- 
ity for detached, gently ironic 
observation which have re- 
mained characteristic of all his 
writings. 

Both books, when they ap- 
peared in English, were appre- 
ciated at their true worth by 
major reviewers such as Philip 
Toynbee. But neither made 
much import beyond small 
enthusiastic circles, even 
though they were re-published 
together as a Penguin Modem 
Classic in 1979 (of which a 
reprint would be desirable). 

Primo Levi’s auto- 
biographical identification 
with these first classic works 
perhaps explains why he chose 
to use a pseudonym, Damiano 
Malabaua, for his next book, 
written in a totally different 
genre. Storie naturali ( 1 96 6) is 
a collection of short stories, 
superficially classifiable as sci- 
ence fiction, about the absurd 
and usually disas trous con- 
sequences of all too plausible

scientific and technological 
developments on individuals. 

In this, as in the following 
collections of stories, Vizio a 
forma (1971) and Lilit (1981), 
the pace of scientific discov- 
eries and their applications, 
particularly in electronics, 
molecular biology, chemistry 
and astrophysics, is used by 
Levi to invent circumstances 
in which the future is dad 
realistically in the garments of 
the industrial present or recent 
past, and man nnlpswht*^ 
forces beyond his controL 

The easy and immediate 
recognition of situations and 
personages and the telling 
take-off of the literary style of 
scientific or bureaucratic re- 
ports are typical traits of these 
stories. 

Levfs profound sense of the 
moral limi ts of man’s tech- 
nical creativity is lightly ex- 
pressed in these humorous, 
highly inventive novelle. The 
absurdity of the human con- 
dition is often brought out by 
his technique of reversal of 
accepted roles, a world turned 
upside down, as in the discov- 
ery of the utility of chickens to 
act as censors in a future 
totalitarian state. 

With The Periodic Table 
(1975), Levi forged in a 
particularly happy fusion the 
experiences of his two lives, as 
chemist and Jew. The stories, 
structured around dements of 
Menddev’s Table, can be read 
at many levels: as a narration 
of Levi's personal experiences 
in Fascist Italy, as a delicate 
evocation of Piedmontese 
Jewish culture destroyed by 
Nazism, as an explanation to 
lay readers of the mysteries of 
chemistry and the defeats and 
satisfactions experienced by 
its practitioners. 

Why the English translation 
(1984) should have been so 
immediately successful is 
difficult to explain. The bridg- 
ing of the two cultures, un- 
usual in the F.n glish -sp ftalrtng 
world, given its educational 
system, is too generic and 
inadequate a reply (although 
the success of Fred Hoyle's 
Black Cloud is worth 
recalling). 

Possibly the combination in 
Primo Levi, an industrial 
chemist by profession, of 
scientific knowledge with lit- 
erary imagination firmly 
rooted in recognizable human 


Improprieties of

experiences, comforts our per- 
sonal anguishes and triumphs 
in a world of technological 
threats. 

La chiave a Stella (1979), a 
novd of a mechanical fitter's 
experiences in often exotic 
parts of the world, explored, in 
humourous fashion, the same 
theme of the individual's 
identification with his skill in 
a technologically ambivalent 
world, and exemplification of 
man's eternal struggle to 
dominate matter. 

But to this Levi added a new 
dimension, an exploration of 
the capacities of Italian to 
render in tbeir fullness the 
grammatical and phonetic 
idiosyncracies and impropri- 
eties of the dialect language of 
a Piedmontese workshop. 

With The monkey wrench 
(title of the forthcoming Eng- 
lish translation) Levi has of- 
fered his characteristically 
individual contribution to the 
great tradition of Italian re- 
gional and dialect literature. 

In his two most recent 
books Primo Levi has re- 
turned to his past as a per- 
secuted Jew. using his own 
experience as a partisan and 
his Auschwitz knowledge of 
Ashkenazi Jewry. If not now. 
when? (1982). a full-scale 
historical novel, narrates the 
story ofa motley Jewish group 
in Russia which survives as a 
partisan band fighting its way 
through n Nazi-occupied 
Europe to Italy.

THE TITLES 


The following books of Primo 
Levi have been published in 
English: 

If This is a Man (Orion Press, 
I960) and The truce (Bodley 
Head, 1965), both repuMshed 
together as a Penguin Modem 
Classic, 1979. Snema: Col- 
lected Poems of Primo Levi 
(Menard Press, 1976) The Peri- 


odic table (Michael Joseph, 
1984) If not now, when? (Mi- 
chael Joseph, 1985) Moments 
of reprieve (Michael Joseph, 
for 1986) The monkey wrench 
(Michael Joseph, forthcoming) 

his deep sympathy with Yid- 
dish literature (such as the 
stories of Sholeji Alechem) 
into a powerful interpret a tion 
of the material and moral 
catastrophe of the Nazi 
destruction of eastern Euro- 
pean Jewish culture: 

His latest book, I sommersi 
e i salvati (1986), returns to 
the same themes of Nazi 
destruction and the survival 
of human values, but in a 
different manner. This dev- 
astating^ honest book is a 
reconsideration of the Nazi 
concentration camp system, 
in the disillusioning perspec- 
tive of the history of our 
postwar world. 

It should be obligatory read- 
ing for all who fedlely deliver 
judgments of condemnation 
or forgiveness, for — as Levi 
writes — only those who 
experienced it can judge and 


even they are not the best 
witnesses by the very feet of 
their survival 

The dishonesties, confu- 
sions and simple incapacity to 
conceive of the enormhy of 
tiie Nazi Lager, and their 
sinister implications for the 
world today, are dissected and 
refuted with implacable rigour 
from the collective 
responsibilities of the German 
population to the moral and 
political irresponsibility of 
some recent tendencies to 
identify the victims and their 
assassins. 

But Levfs main concern is 
to arrive at a- closer under- 
standing of both imprisoned 
and their oppressors, and - 
through this of foe inner 
nature of the system itself 
Levfs reflections about man’s 
response to extreme con- 
ditions, the deliberate humili- 
ation and subjection to 
gratuitous and unlimited vi- 
olence that characterized the 
Lager, foe corrupting effects 
of foe search for some form of 
privilege as a means of sur- 
vival, provide a uniquely wise 
insight into what he rightly 
calls “the stain of our 
century". 

Primo Levi's place in Ital- 
ian and European literature is 
very particular, because he has 
never wished to renounce his 
experiences of Auschwitz or as 
an industrial chemist The 
very 'personal anthology he 
entitled, with tongue in cheek, 
bis “search for his roots" (La 


ricerca detle radio, 1981), 
includes a few of the authors 
whose influence can be seen in 
his writings: Swift and Rabe- 
lais, Conrad and Melville, foe 
Book of Job and Thomas 
Mann. 

Primo Levi's fictional sto- 
ries combine p taste for ad ven- 
ture and sense of the absurd, 
achieved in part through the 
poltergeist animation he 
attributes to matter. They

share in common with fats *f 
more autobiographical writ- 
ings a determined defence of 
homo faber , a conviction of 
man’s need to test his limits, 
and a profound sense of 
human dignity. 

But above aU Primo Levi is 
one of literature's great story- 
tellers — perhaps, as he says 
himself because he is some- 
one to whom people like to tel! 
their stories.

- ‘ * branches stiffened 
' with ice and ihree-foot long 

' iddes reaching down from

■ the 1984 Winter Olympics 
' had had to re-schednle the 
- ' men's downhill skiing but 

- inside the Zetra Stadium, the 

- setting for the ice -dancing, 

* Jayne Torvill and Christopher 
;; Dean were rehearsing to the 

music of Ravel’s Bolero, 

. preparing to add gold medals 
lo their world championships. 

Off the ice, wrapped warmly 
to keep out the cold. Princess 
Anne, there as-presideni of the 
British Olympic Associaton, 
was watching foe young con- 
pie, accompanied by the Brh- 

- ish Ambassador - to 
Yugoslavia, Kenneth Scott, 
myself; Charles Palmer, chair- 

* man of foe British Olympic 
Association, her personal 
detective, her secretary and 
several members of foe British 
party in Sarajevo. 

Suddenly, a television cam- 
era crew from American 
Broadcasting Companies Inc 
moved to within four feet of 
' Princess Anne and focused its 
camera on her. It was a dear 
breach of protocol, so her 
detective, from Special 
Branch, stood up, removed his 
for hat and placed it over foe 

- lens ofthe camera. You know, 
the Americans were advised 
politely, you should not be 
doing that; it is a breach of 
protocol. 

One of the American crew 
glowered at us and, in, a voice 
loud enough for all to hear, 

' snarled: “Go **** yourselves. 
We bought the Games.” 

In &cl ABC had paid $91.5 .

vision rights in the United

Olympics later in foe same 
■ year and to act as host 
broadcaster, which involved 
another S7S million. In other 
words, it was spending dose to 
$400 million in six months for 
the right to televise the 
Olympics.

GYMNASTICS 

All change 
for title 
hopefuls 

By Peter Aykroyd 

Gymnasts taking part in the 
Daily Mirror British champion- 
ships this weekend will have 
more than tough competition to 
contend with. 

First, the venue of Alexan dr a 
Palace is a new departure from 
the customary one at Wembley 
Arena. The gymnasts will no 
longer have their familiar 
wooden Olympic podium to 
perform on; their apparatus and 
mats will be laid on a concrete 
floor at ground level. Further- 
more, the usual maximum audi- 
ence will be reduced from 7,000 
to just over 2,000. For some of 
the 24 finalists, the change of 
<Mtif and atmosphere will be a 
psychological disadvan ta g e . . 

For the first lime, the major- 
ity of the women competitors 
will have been trained by meth- 
ods ada p ted tv the British 
Amateur Gymnastics Associ- 
ation from the system devel- 
oped by the Soviet Union. 

The event will also produce 
two new national champions 
following, the resignations of 
Tory Bartlett and Hayley Price, 
the present men's and women's 
title holders. 

The 1986 men’s champion 
will almost certainly be Andrew 
Morris, Britain’s veteran gym- 
nast who won the title twice 
before defeat by Barden last 
year. Moms, who leads the fidd 
after foe preliminaries, has 
represented Britain at all mfyor 
events for foe past five yean. 

In contrast to Morris, -the 
fevonrite for the women’s crown 
is a comparative unknown. She 
is foe graceful Lisa Elliot, of ? 


the camera crewman had got it 
right American television bad 
bought the Games. The sec- 
ond was that Lord Kfllanm, 
the president of foe Inter- 
national Olympic Committee, 
had got jt wrong in Moscow 
four years earlier when he said 
foe Olympics were for foe 
benefit of our children. And 
the third was that foe Games 
would never be the same 
a gain. 

If we look back over recent 
Olympic Games we will 
remember Mexico for its high 
altitude, Munich for the mur- 
der at the hands of terrorists of 
II Israeli athlete*, Montreal 
for the way in which tax- 
payers will be meeting foe cost 
of the Games until foe 21st 
century, and Moscow in 1980 
and Los Angeles four years 
later for the flamwi at whic h 
the super-powers played trt- 
for-tat 

Four years before the Sara- 
jevo Games President Jimmy 
Carter, of the United States, 
chose to plunge foe Olympic 
movement into its greatest 
crisis after Russian forces had 
moved in strength into 
Afghanistan just after Christ- 
mas 1979. 

T hey were there, foe 
Soviets claime d, at 
foe request of the 
legitimate Afghan 
government to put 
down an insurrection by rebel 
tribesmen. The United States 
and the West saw it di£ 
ferently: the Soviets had in- 
vaded Afghanistan not only to 
destroy the rebels but to 
increase their sphere of in- 
fluence in the. area because of 
'events in Iran and ofl in tire 
Persian Gulf- 

On January 28, Lloyd Cut- 
ler, a presidential counsel, 
deman ded of Lord Killanin 
that the IOC caned or post- 
pone tire Games. “It was this 
. sense, of. . arrogance, not 
■personally shown by Cutler, 
but the high-handed nature of 
the approach by tire White 
House, which raised my 
hackles,” KiUanin wrote after 
his re tireme nt. 

Ultimately, Carter set a 
deadline of February 20 for 
Soviet forces to puS out of 
Afghanistan if a United States 
team was going to compete in 
Moscow. The President lost 
little time, after the deadline, 
in announcing that Americans 
would not be at the Games

and threatened to revoke the 
passport of any athlete who 
- tried to go to Moscow. 

In Britain, Mrs Thatcher 
was firmly supporting Carter 
and, as the debate raged. Lord 
Carrington (then Foreign Sec* 
rotary) met Sir Denis Fallows, 
chairman of the BOA, and 
other heads of sport in an 
attempt to persuade them not 
to go to Moscow. The ques- 
tion was debated in the House 
of Commons on March 17. 
According to Lord KiUanin, 
“The standard of debate and 

thp m fHarinffSK nf ar gmm»nt an d 

misinformation did that 
chamber no good.” 

The debate lasted a full day, 
the first time in the history of 
the Commons that a debate of 
that length had concentrated 
on sport. The Government 
won by 168 votes but perhaps 
the most significant aspects 
were that some 30 Conser- 
vatives abstained despite a 
tinee-Hne whip on attendance 
and that Michael Hesehine 
and not my predecessor as 
Minister of Sport, Hector 
Monro, wound up the debate. 
The Minister for Sport not 
able to speak during foe 
biggest and most important 
debate on sport in Commons 
history! The feet did not go 
unnoticed tty tire Opposition. 

Monro, elected as Member 
for Dumfries in 1964, had 
held a number of junior posts 
in Government and in 
Opposition. He was on the 
brink of resigning as Par- 
liamentary Under-Secretary 
of State at Environment, 
Hesdtine’s department, both 
because ofwhat he regarded as 
cavalier treatment to himself 
as Minister for Spent and, 
indeed, because he fun- 
damentally disagreed with the 


stance of the Government. 
Finally, though he was deeply 
wounded, he decided that the 
correct course of action was 
for him not to resign at that 
time. The following year, he 
was removed from office by 
the Prime Minister and I 
succeeded him 
At the time of foe debate, I 
was Under-Secretary of State 
in the Department of Educa- 
tion and Science and not 
involved. I voted with foe 
Government but today I be- 


Iunch at foe Bath Club early in

said that the United States 
would destroy the Olympic 
movement and foe IOC and 
would then build them up 
again for 1984 and Los An- 
geles. Howell retorted: “In this 
country Magna Carta rules — 
not Jimmy Carter.” 

Cutler invited Sr Denis 
Follows and Dick Palmer, the 
BOA’S excellent secretary, to 



fewer than fifty, of which tire 
most important, in medal 
terms, were tire United States, 

SWIMMING 


the Federal Republic of Ger- 
many and Japan. 

In some ways foe Games 
were devalued but, had the 
boycott succeeded, there 
would have been a real danger 
that the Olympic movement 
would have been destroyed. 

The dear feeling in British 
sport during the build-up to 
Moscow and for some time 
afterwards was that foe British 
Olympic Association, and Sir 
Denis Follows in particular, 
had been subjected to intense 
and unreasonable pressure by 
the Government, that foe 
debate was kept in people’s 
minds by carefully planted 
questions in tire House and 
that Mrs Thatcher and her 
senior ministers were guilty of 
interference of the worst land. 

S ir Denis was a man of 
vast experience —for- 
mer general secretary 
of BALPA, foe pilots' 
trade union, former 
secretary of foe Football 
Association and treasurer of 
the Central Council of Phys- 
ical Recreation. He had had 
an important role in the 
successful 1966 World Cup 
and was a charming and adept 
leader. He believed that had 
foe Government used a more 
subtle approach than laying 
about them with a baxtieaxe, 
he could have guided tire 
entire BOA towards a consen- 
sus over Moscow; as it was, 
some sports stayed at home. 

Sir Denis died in 1983. 
Even then, two years after the 
Moscow Games, he was 
deeply wounded by his treat- 
ment at tire hands of tire 
Government I can recall viv- 
iefiy the last occasion I saw 
him. He was receiving treat-

pital not long before his death 


Croft shows determination 
to make a big splash again 


There can be no mistaking 
June Croft's determination to 
re-establish herself Britain's No

The 23- year-old British 
record holder far 100 and 200

competition after her Olympic 
medal winning performance in 
Los Angeles and who recently 
decided to start competing 
again, is off to Australia in a 
fortnight to spend the winter

Brisbane. 

She will stay there, at her own 
expense, to compete in the

’. Prince Philip: Opposed boycott 

and as 1 sat by his bedside, 
with Betty, his wife, we talked 
about Moscow and the role of 
the Government After a long 
and distinguished career he 
had few regrets, he told me, 
except that he had lived long 
enough to see world sport well 
and truly politicized. 

During my first two years in 
office I repeatedly was sur- 
prised at the depth of feeling 
generated by Mrs Thatcher's 
action, not least from the 
people within sport who, tra- 
ditionally, were supporters of 
the Conservative Party. 

There are many of our 
leading administrators who 
will never believe that a Tory 
government wifi have any- 
thing other than a record of 
ambivalence towards sport. 

Three weeks or so before the 
start of the 1984 Winter 
Games at Sarajevo, Marat 
Gramov, the most powerful 
voice is Russian sport, bad 
threatened that his country 
would not be taking part in the 
Los Angeles Olympics because 
of a concern about security. 
An Aeroflot stewardess had 
been murdered in New York 
and tritile detectives had 
determined it was a motive- 
less street crime, the Soviets 
decided that the murder had 
been by Lithuanian emigres 
waiting to slaughter the youth 
of the USSR.

would have told us that the 
Russians were about to take 
revenge for President Carter’s 
boycott of Moscow four years 
earlier. The game was called

Whether conceit is more 
prevalent among fishermen dam 
other sportsmen is argsable bat 
the case for it is weD put in the 
latest book on reservoir and lake 
fishing by a Midland fly fisher- 
man, Arthur Cove. 

There is a close-up of him 
with a cigarette in Ms mouth on 
the front cover and in nearly 
every chapter, aad so metimes 
more than once, Mr Cove tells 
how good be is at catching fish 
when others fifo and how maefa 
be is admired. Too mach rep- 
etition of this becomes tedious. 

It is also to be regretted that 
Mr Gove gives his name to 
tilings to which he is not 
entitled. His Cove pheasant tail 
nymph is the same as-thooe 
fished at Blagtkm SO years ago 
and the Cove knot is the water 
knot which has been tied by 
generations of fishermen. 

All this is a pity because when 
he deals with practical ways oS 
trout fishing Mr Gove's advice 
cannot be bettered. Some of Us 
techniques, sack as Rii jAg the 
fly in pockets of weed, are new 
and most ingenious. If one can 
pat op with Mr Cove’s egoism 
the book is well worth reading. 

One thing that Mr Cove’s 
publishers have done well for 
him is was to show bis fly 
dressings dearly and in ad ore. 
One could only wish that the 
same had happened to Jeremy 
Lucas who has written a book on 
reservoir, lake and loch fishing 
which I found difficult to pot 
down. 

He deplores the habit of tire 

personality huht-up (4 fly 
fishermen, the making of heavy 
catches on the reservoirs by 
methods which are on the Cringe 
of the rales. He delights in both 
the classic (the wet fly) and the 
imitative (nymphs and pnpae) 
styles of fishing but is wise 
enough to see that oo one day 
conditions will favour the nymph 
and on the next the wet fly. 

Those who follow these two 
types of fly fishiog. as compared 
with lores, are finding, he says, 
aesthetic values in their sport 
beyond compare. The most 
beautiful style of fly fishing - to 
Mr Lncas is fishing the drift on 
Scottish lochs. A M of this 
quality really does did deserve 
better illustrations.

Talented Paean to end

Henry Cecil, who at the end 
of this season will have to 
hand over his trainers' 
championship to Newmarket 
rival, Michael Stoute, is seeing 
out this gear's long, ardous 
campaign in a blaze of glory. 

Within the last week the 
Derby ante-post market has 
been completely reformed af- 
ter Cecil has produced two 
impressive winners. Ref- 
erence Point and Legal Bid. 

Now I expect the Warren 
Place trainer to saddle a 
double with Paean (2.15) and 
Water Cay (3.20) at 
Newmarket's final meeting of 
the season. 

Paean, who contests the 
two-mile George Stubbs 
Stakes, has been a model of 
consistency this term, scoring 
four times and been placed in 
his other two starts. However, 
the fast going has been against 

him

Rugby Unions. After that it 
was possible to lose touch with 
most of them. What we have 
done now is to arrange for two 
age groups to come together as 
the under-20 and under-2I 
squads. 

“At the end of the season we 
ask the two unions to submit 
the names of the players which 
form their squads. These 
make up the under-20s. In 
Case some players may have 
escaped the net, we ask the 
elute, too, to submit names 


but some of the players were 
not quite sure what to malm of 
it since there was no immedi- 
ate objective. 

“That was the first step,* 
Dawes explained. “We are 
going a step further this year.

One of the oldest and lamest of sports 
photographs has been aneartned, as is tike 
way with these things, in the unlikeliest of 
placet. H. A. Osbourne, die Sussex County 
rtidwt rhb librarian, > ** — Hy stumbled 
across a sepia photograph, me asmi n g some 
lift wide by 3%ft deep — It is ahunu above 
with its finder — in the bofler-room b en eat h 
the Hove pavilion. It was taken during the 
second Test match between Australia and 
England, who^ were captained by W. G. Grace, 
at the Sydney Cricket Groqnd in January* 
February, 1892. 


The photogr a ph, a view of the match in 
progres s , is to be pre sen te d to the New South 
Wales Cricket Association m. January, at die 


end of die forthcoming Ashes Test series, by 
Sussex CCC, who will keep a half-size copy. 
The has crane about t hr ough the 

efforts of David Frith, editor of Woden 
Cricket Momtify ; who has arranged for 
, Qantas to air-freight die photograph, which 
weighs 1.5cwt, in four sections free of charge. 

The photograph was orighdlf presented to 
the third Eari of Sheffield, one of the game’s 
great benefactors and theman wbooqpnized 
and financed the 1891-92 tour, by die trustees 
of the Sydney Cricket Ground. Public interest 
in cricket kid seriously declined in Anstnlia 
daring the late 1880s, due to the waning 
powers and successes of their side, but 
SfcrfErf^ mt only a strong Rit glwh 

touring party, but also persuaded Grace to 
lead it. Grace had visited Australia only once 


before, in 1873-74— his famous “honeymoon** 
tour. 

The 1892 Sydney Test was remarkable. 
Thanks to efforts of T-nhmnim (milt for 
58) and Abel (who carried his bat for 132 not 
out), everything went in EadauTk favour as 
they established d first-inmngs lead of 162. 
However, their hick riwnpJ and Bngfmii 
struggled to take jast two wickets daring the 
whole of the third day as Anstnlia, for whom 
Lyons scored 134 and Bmntumn 91 in seven 
and a half hours, eventually totalled 391 in 
their second ™ "i p- By the FngTsmf

they lost three early wickets, mdudiag that of 
Grace for five. They never really recovered 
and Anstnlia won fay 72 runs. 


In presenting the photograph to Lord 
Sheffield, Australians were showing their 
appreciation for what be had done. They were 
subsequently to have much more for which to 


be grateful to him. At the end of the tour, Shef-

best. They invested it in a ahh>m i mcasuiraig

Australian coats of anas, to be competed for 
annually by the Australian states. 

Though England won the third Test, h 
Adelaide, Australia took the series and it 
proved to be the beginning of an Australian 
cricket revival. Soon, they had embarked on 
one at their most glorious periods as the game 
moved into its so-called “Golden Age".

because we do not want 
players who are out of their

can keep a watchful eye on the 
best players in Wales." 

The under-20 squad was 
announced on Wednesday, 
the under-21 group will be 
considered this weekend. 
There will be about 1 50 names

today. 

While the praise and win will 
work wonders far Christie’s 
confidence, which was at its 
lowest ebb since tiro eight-round 
defeat by Mark Kaylor, of West 
Ham, last year, Christie and bis 
manager, Bnrt McCarthy, are 
going to take things rather more 


opponents. 

While there is no way of 
’toughening Christie's chin by 
changing his stance according to 
bis opponent’s style, he can keep 
his chin out of harm's way. 
Christie is so brimful of skin and 
ability that to change stances, 
much as Marvin Hagter does, 
should not be beyondhim. 

McCarthy has sent a telex to 
the three world bodies request- 


ing a top 10 ranking for Christie 
on the strength of bis victory 
over Mannion. Frank Warren, 
the promoter, believes that if 
Thomas Hearns moves up to 
light-heavyweight, as he is 
thinking of doing, “a slot may 
become available and Christie 
may well get in”. 

In the m eantim e Christie win

Azumah Nelson, the World 
Boxing Council featherweight 
champion, who will be based in 
London from now on and box 
for Warren, and Sibson, who 
win be meeting American 
opponents. 

Warren said: “As I also have 
Barry Mkhael. the EBFjunior 
lightweight champion, I am 
always ready to give Barry 
McGmgan and Jim McDonnell 
a crack at the world title.” 


“We have got so man y 
options,” McCarthy said. “We 
can go fer Anderson’s British

tide or the European. We win 
not rush Errol and we wfll pack

Kingston, the former England 
scrum half, they have won all 
their matches, amassing 300 
points to three conceded in the 
process - and, having over- 
whelmed Belmont Abbey, their 
1 1-0 victory over MBlfield was 
particularly gratifying. 

Llandovery College produced 
a superb programme for their

admirably the passion and 
involvement that the schools

- Christ's Brecon won the big

degree of superiority in tbe

By George Ace 

Thoughtfae main contest, m 
which Brian Anderson, from 
Sheffield, stopped Croydon’s 
southern area champion, Tony 
Burke, in tbe eighth round to 
win fee vacant British middle- 
weight title, was between two 
“foreigDcrs”, the first boxing 
show of fee season at the Ulster 
Hall, Belfast, sponsored by 
Smirnoff and under the 
Eastwood banner, provided an 
excellent night’s fare 

The title bout was easily 
forgettable and was saved from 
complete mediocrity only by 
Anderson’s becoming gal- 
vanized in the seventh round. 
Until then, tbe S heffi e ld boxer 
bad seemed content to operate 
behind a useful left jab to which 
Brake app e are d to have little 
defence. 

But, when Anderson decid e d 
to cut loose in the seventh 
round, he e x c it ed a near capac- 
ity crowd by punishing Brake 
wife a variety of punches to 
head and body. 

The southern area champion 
attempted to take the fight to 
Anderson over the final 30 
seconds of the round. But a bad 
cut on the lid of Brake’s left eye 
eariy in tbe eighth round, forced 
the re f eree to halt the proceed- 
ings. So fee British title remains 
in Sheffield, home town of the 
man who relinquished it — 
Herol Graham, the European 
champion, stablemate and close 
friend of Anderson. 

The evening opened on a high 
note wife a little gem of a 
contest between Roy Webb, 
from Lame, and Gary Maxwell 
(Sheffield). The latter, a snappy 
puncher wife a more than useful 
left hook, looked to be beading 
for a dear-cut points win until 
Webb caught Maxwell on his 
unguarded chin. Never one to 
stand on ceremony when an 
opponent starts flashing distress 
signals, Webb followed it up 
wife a battery of punches that 
left Maxwell slumped to fee 
canvas with no hope of beating 
the count.

is still juggling wife team 
possibilities in the second first- 
class match of the tour *8**"** 
South Australia at Adelaide. 
With tbe first Test in Brisbane a 
fortnight away, his team’ s form 
has raised more questions than 
h has answered. 

The nine-wicket win in tbe 
50-over match at Wudinna pro- 
vided a timely fillip after the 
damage done by Queensland in 
their first four-day game in 
Australia, but now there is 
increasing pressure on tbe play- 
ers called up at Adelaide. 

“Queensland caught every- 
thing, and we didn't,” said 
Gatting of the five-wicket defeat 
at Brisbane. “We’re still gening 
used to the light and bounce of 
the bafl. But we’ve been here 
over two weeks now, and can't 
give that excuse much longer.” 

The England selectors are 
caught between giving all 16 
tourists some hard lead-up work 
before the first test, and restor- 


Leicestenhire colleague Gower. 
Gatting said that fee languid 
left-hander would play in Perth, 
while the 24-year-old Whitaker 
is unlikely to see much service 
unless there are m^jor disasters 
forthcoming from England’s 
middle-older. 

Richards replaces French, 
who had an uncomfortable 
match in Brisbane behind the 
stumps. 

Botham has recovered from a 
skin-tear in his foot and is fit, 
while an inspection of the 
Adelaide pitch gave tbe selectors 
a rare chance to name both 


Emburey and Edmonds in fee 
squad. The forecast is that tbe

Allan Lamb, who ricked his

It involves sending a piece of

resort to stuffing die mouseUne

FOOTBALL 


Fortunes vary for the cup 9 s 
fourth division survivors 


Since financial gain, rather 
than occasional glory, must be 
the chief objective of the impov- 
erished, there can be little doubt 
that Cambridge United, in 
drawing Tottenham Hotspur at 
home, will prosper a whole lot 
more than their poor fourth 
division relations Cardiff City, 
away to Shrewsbury Town, in 
yesterday’s Iittiewoods Cup 
fourth round draw. 

Fare has been both cane! and 
kind to the compet i tion's 
remaining two tiddlers. If Cam- 
bridge have bitten off more than 
they can chew, at least they will 
be choking on a capacity 12,000 
gate at Abbey Stadium. Licking 
his tipi, Chris Tuner, the 
Cambridge manager, remarked? 
“It's a lovely, lovely draw. 
Obviously we are gang to make 
a lot of money, and if we coukl 
win or draw it would be 
wonderful." 

Having removed Wimbledon 
and Ipswich Town, the former 
EUFA Cup winners, in the two 
previous rounds, Cambridge are 
entitled to dream. It coukl be 
that their chances of progress are 
also a sight better than those of 
Cardiff who could hardly have 
received a less attractive reward 
for their spirited defeat of 
Chelsea on Tuesday. This is not 
meant as any disrepect to 
Shrewsbury, simply thatthey 
and Cardiff are frequently

Cup. 

Rot 


m Jones, their managing 
director, searching bard for a 
silver lining, said: “We have 
already beaten Plymouth, an- 
other second division dub, 
home and away in an earlier 
round so this gives us something 
to go for. Actually, our away 
record is better than our home 
one." 

Bradford City, the only other 
side outside the first envision 
who are definitely through, 
would not swop the probability 


The draw pits together two of 
the most successful sides in the 
country this season and also two

Crisis deepens 
at Halifax 


Halifax Town, the fourth 
division dub with debts of more 
than £300,000 have called meet- 
ings of shareholders and cred- 
itors on November 12 which 
will decide their future. 

After a two-hour braid meet- 
ing today at the Shay ground, in 
which Halifax's financial advi- 
sors were present, chairman 
John Maddey said that the 
position was extremely serious. 
If the club could not find a 
banker or a consortium wining 
to take over before the meetings 
there would be no alternative to 
closure. 

' Madeley confirmed that the 
home games against Cardiff City 
tomorrow night, and Exeter Gty 
next Tuesday would go ahead, 
and that staff wages would be 
found this week. But be coukl 
not go beyond that. 

Halifax are the worst sup- 
ported club in the football 


league with an average atten- 
dance of 1,072. 

Mr Madeley explained that 
his own company could not 
taif<» over the dub, and that the 
situation was such that they had 
to look to someone to come 
forward if they were to survive. 

Halifax's major creditors in- 
dude the Inland Revenue to 
whom they owe £76,000. 

Maddey added: “I am appeal- 
ing for all soccer lovers to give 
ns their help by coming to the 
games.” 


Some new 
blood 
for Bond 


John Bond, the Birmingham 
City manager, has responded to 
Wednesday night's 5-0 
IJttiewoods Cup defeat at 
Tottenham by taking Steve 
Lynex, of Leicester Gty and 
Marlin Russell, the Manchester 
United reserve midfield player, 
on loan. 


Holden for Wigan 

Wigan Athletic have signed 
Chester’s Welsh international 
defender Andy Holden, aged 24, 
in a £40,000 deal. Holden, a 
Wigan target for several weeks, 
will make his debut against 
Carlisle United tomorrow. 


Bond, who described his team 
as playing life “frightened 
rabbits” at White Hart Lane, 
said yesterday: ”We needed a bit 
of new blood. We needed a lot 
but we can only have a little so 
that will have to do. 


“I think from everbody's 
point of view after last night it 
was dear that we needed to do 
something. We needed, from the 
chairman's point of view, and 
from mine, in terms of giving 
mysdf a dunce with the team." 


Following Airfield formula 


Non-League football by Paul Newman 

AJan POok, the manager of 
South wide, set his Vauxhall- 
Opel League first division play- 
ers the highest possible 
standards. 


“We model ourselves on

Liverpool,” he said 

“Wc believe in the 

philosophy of a team without 
stars in which every player has 
to do his share of the work. I 
follow Bill Shankly’s saying that 
good players don't make good 
teams, but that good learns 
make good players.” 

The level of football may be 
lower but South wick: have cer- 
tainly shown Liverpool-like 
qualities of resilience and 
character in the last week. 

On Saturday, the Sussex side 
appeared to have lost their 
t — the first 


chance of 


round proper of the FA Cup fin* 
only the second time in their 
104-year history when they con- 
ceded a goal nine minutes from 
time to draw 1-1 at home to 
Maidstone United, the GM 
Vauxhall Conference leaders, in 
the fourth qualifying round. 


In W

’s replay, how- 

took the lead 

after 24 minutes and fought a 
determined rearguard action for 
the rest of the game. Cbeal, then- 
goalkeeper, saved a penalty after 
85 before conceding an 

equalizer in the fifth minute of 
iqjory time. Extra time foiled to 


meet for a second replay at 
Maidstone on Monday to decide 
who will play away to Welling 
United in the first round. 

Bin WHfiams; the Maidstone 
r, said: “Southwick de- 
very well and their 
was the man of the 
match but I couldn’t believe we 
didn't win. We had 32 diets to 
their three and 19 comers to 
their two.” 

Pook, who ended the night 
with his players in a Brighton 
restaurant at 3.30 yesterday 
morning, is not surprised by his 
team's achievement- They have 
noi lost away from home for 
nearly a year and have gone 
from strength to strength since 
his appointment four seasons 
ago, progressing from the Sussex 
County League to the Vauxhall- 
Opel first division via the 
Combined Counties League.

McEnroe 
on way 
to being 
an angel 

From Richard Evans, Paris 


There is a minor love affair 
going on between John 
McEnroe and Paris. It has not 
yet blossomed to a point where 
Juliette Greco would feel moved 
to sing about it nor is there any 
guarantee of how long it will 
last. But there was no doubting 
where the sympathies ofa large 
afternoon crowd lay as McEnroe 
struggled through a second 
round match here at the Paris 
Open against Ronald Agenor, a 
Haitian, who now lives in 
Bordeaux. 

McEnroe, who eventually 
won 7-6, 6-3 has expressed his 
gratimde for the way he is being 
received twice in successive 
press conferences. 

“It is a good feeling to have 
people on your side," he said. 
“It doesn't happen very often." 

Memories are long m French 
fmnic anH iiik appreciation for 
a player who is considered 
largely unloveable in so many 
other countries probably began 
during the 1 982 Davis Cup final 
in Grenoble when McEnroe 
revealed his strong streak of 
professionalism by playing a 
very serious dead robber against 
Henri Leconte after Gene Mayer 
hud treated the previous nwtrih 
asajoke. 

The stadium was packed on 
that particular Sunday even 
though the United States were 
feadmg 3-0 and the crowd, 
having booed Mayer off court, 
responded to McEnroe’s bril- 
liant display with true Gallic 
fervour. 

Equally, they have been 
responsive to his desperate and 
so for unsuccessful attempts to 
come to terms with the slow day 
at Slade Roland Garros in the 
French Open. 

Against Agenor, McEnroe was 
made to fight as hard as he had 
been the previous 
n gajn ^t the much imj

Like a boonoaag, McEnroe's racket floats past him 


Todd Nelson, of America. 

Agenor did everything right in 
the Brat set right np to the start 
of the tie break. Then, typically, 
McEnroe exerted a little pres- 
sure at the net on the first couple 
of points and produced two 

s tniming hwAhanil wltiyL 
For the first time in the match 
the gulf in dass was evident and 
McEnroe eventually reeled off 
seven consecutive points to give 
himself a safety cushion 
There were only a couple of 
er up tio n s over line calls, both 
minor by McEnroe standards. 
Judging by the purple shirt he 
has been w earing here at the 
Omnisport Palais, one might 


have thought McEnroe is trying 
to treat toe game’s codes and 
etiquette with greater reverence. 

Although there is a long way 
to go before the collar gets 
turned back to front, McEnroe is 
ma k in g some pro g ress. He hs 
always been more impressive in 
the confessional of a press 
conference than out there in the 
heat ofbattle but, encouraged by 
a public that seems to under- 
stand the rage within. Who 
knows what Bud of ho 
might become.

BADMINTON 


Rest for top three lets 
reserves press claims 

By Richard Eateo 


Although China made sure of 
winning the three-match series 
when they won the second 
encounter 4-1 at Oldham late on 
Wednesday night, England’s 
new manager Paul Whetnafi 
travelled to the third and final 
contest at Darlington yesterday 
in good heart. 

WhetnaD on Wednesday de- 
cided to keep the best possible 
relations with three of his 
leading players, Martin Dew, 
Dipak Tailor and Gillian Gow- 
ers, unexpectedly resting them 
so that they should travel to next 
week’s World Cup in Indonesia 
in a decent state. 

Relations between the players 
and management have some- 
times been trouble-torn in the 
last 12 months: currently they 
are much better. 

It virtually made certain, 
however, that England would be 
unable to repeat any of the 
heart-stopping moments at 
Portsmouth on Tuesday when 
Dew and Tailor had two match 


Brown 


points to^give England a gnat 


win and foiled by the width of a 
feather. Bat it gave an opportu- 
nity to search for ability among 
the less exper ie nced players, and 
rhft but* fl i | ^ ii;p i^ Richard 


Outterside and Mike 
certainly showed soma 
Thesetwo overcame Jin Chen 
and Li Jian, conquerors of Dew 
and Tailor at Portsmouth, by 
the remarkable score of 15-3, 15- 
6, albeit in a dead match. 
Wbetnall was delighted with 
that and also pleased with the 
performance of last year’s na- 
tional champion Fiona Elliott, 
who somehow managed a better 
score than Helen Troke, the 
European and Commonwealth 
champion, had the night before 
against the wondergtnYao Fen. 

Elliott was only beaten 11-4, 
12-9, but once again there was 
no mistaking the pace and 
unexpected strength 
Yao’s win in the British 
Airways Masters at the Royal 
Albert Hall on Sunday Is sorely 
only the start of a long list of 
major titles for this impish 19- 
year-old.

Colin Snape yesteriay re- 
argued as Executive Director of 
the Frofessisal Golfers’ Associ- 
ation less than one week after it 
was rumoured that his 14-year- 
old reign was about to come to 
as abrupt end. 

Suape, who has also resfeaed 
as Ex ecutiv e Director of the 
Women’s PGA, said: "I have 
eqjoyed sharing in the PGA’s 
many achievements, but I fed 
tins is t he rigta to ne to pursue 
new opportunities’.* 

The announcement of 
Snapefr resignation was made 
following a meeting of the 
PGA’s board of dire ctors at their 
Apollo House headquarters at 
The Belfry, Sutton Coldfield. 

Derek Nash, chairman of the 
board, said: “Colin Snape 
played a leading ntie within the 
PGA, taking the association into 
a new era from the days of a 
awaii backroom staff at the 
Kenmngton Oval to the na- 
tional headquarters at The Bd- 
ffy, the establishment of 
regional offices and assets of £1 


Even so, it was apparently 
rrwnmnn knowledge behind the 
scenes that Snape, who is under- 
stood to have received a salary 
in the region of £50,000 for his 
two roles, was causing increas- 
ing concern through the 

flnmmerrtaliaatim nftte PfiA 

There was spec ula tion last 
week that Snape was on the 
point of being ousted, though 
tins was apparently denied at 
the time by the former Ryder 
Cup player, Peter Alliss, who is a 
member of the PGA’s board of 
directors. 

Alliss was unavailable for 
comment following the 
announcement yesterday as he 
immediatdy fen for the United 
States, white the other members 
of the Board, Captain Charles 
Hughes, KettbHodreand How- 
ard Bennett, were refusing to 


comment. Colin Snapcwus 
understood to bo on holiday in 
Yorkshire and he. too, was 
unavailable for comment at a 
Harrogate hotel. . 

But, Beverly Lews, chairman 
of the Women’s PGA, said: 
“Cohn Snape did a very good 
job for us. He played a signifi- 
cant part in the development ot 
ourassocaition- 1 would say that 
we now have a voy sound 
product to sdl in the future. 

Snape, the former honorary 

' fawa^hiig , and a Liver- 
pool University graduate in 
wirnmwn ;, hunted the PGA into 
itu» iMmdiwmi of the modon 
golfing world after securing the 
reins of s e cret a ry in June 1973. 

His appointment, fo Bowing 
the death of- Major John 
Bywaters, was a break in tra- 
dnion in the first place as service 
offices had been appointed in 
the past ynrth as Commander 
r harks Roe, then Colonel 
Harry Reed. 

Snape achieved most of his 
amuc as the PGA moved its 
headquarters from the back of 
the Surrey Cricket Club’s 
ground at Kensington Oval to 
toe modem offices at The 
Bdfry. and he took the assets 
from £40,000 to £1 million. He 
also stepped in when the WFGA 
was on toe verge of bankruptcy 
four years ago and Europe's top 
women goffers played for 
£75tyOQO this season. 

But in the process it was 
claimed he raffled a few feathers 
and «ha* gradually the concern 
in crea s ed for what is essentially 
a members' organization. There 
were almost certainly warnings 
for Snape as the committee, line 
any other, were eag er that one 
man did not become bigger than 
tike association; and the arrival 
.of Allis might, in time, be seen 
as a turning point in the PGA’s 

tlimlriii| .

Jimmy Binns said support 
South Africa's continued 
membership had eroded at the 
WBA assembly, which has 
been holding its annual meet- 
ing in Reno this week. A vole 
is expected today . 

It has changed 180 degrees. 
I hope to hit the peak of 
momentum tomorrow," 
B inns, c ha i rm an of the P Iwmw 
sylvania Athletic Commission 


and a supporter of severing 
South Africa over 


ties with 
apartheid, said. 

A unanimous vote is needed 
t the more than SO voting 
ilegates for the expulsion ofa 
WBA member and there has 
been talk by scone delegates at 
the meeting of adopting a 
measure that would take a 
stand against apartheid with- 
out severing Iks with South 
Africa. 

But US promoter; Botc h 
Lewis, who has been a driving 
force in the move to oust 
South Africa from the WBA, 
has been lobbying hard fear the 
expulsion of 
South Africa. Binns said to- 
ners opposing South African 
from US con- 
gressmen use Senator Edward 
Kexmedy and Mickey Leland, 
chairman of the Black Omens, 


had also contributed to the 
change in momentum an the

Kdeher was tile regional 
vice-president for North 
America but lost a bid for 
reelection in a caucus yester- 
day. Bums ac kno w ledged that 
Kdeher’s stand on South Afri- 
ca was a factor in his defeat

• You have got to hand it to 
Granada Television: of all ITV 
companies, it is oa its own when it 
comes to microscopically exact 
evocations of the non-ux>di slant 
pasL ] don't mean just the the 
props and the cos tum es and the 
buildings. Anyone with a lot of 
cash and the right reference books 
can get those things right What I 
am talking about is what I can 
only call the “colour** ageing of the 
pictures, and the uncanny way in 
which the actors manage to sug- 
gest that they are genuine period 
characters who, decades later, 
nave somehow been unfrozen 
from their blocks of preserving ice 
and restored to life: Think back, 
«* r example, to Brideshead Revis- 
Country Matters, and Sher- 
lock Holmes, and you will see 
what I mean. It happens yet again

Ian Curteis's dramatization of J B 
Priestley’s novel about the for- 
tunes of a touting music hall 
company on the eve of the Hist 
World War. It helps, of course, 
that Curteis’s reworking of Priest- 
ley has given the actors some fine; 
mood-capturing lines to speak (“I 
was a sour vat of anger, bitterness 
and stupidity”, says the narrator, 
looking back), and that Derek 
Hilton has come up with a musical 
score that respects both the gusto 
and the se ntim entality of the 
matchless music hall songs of the 
Edwardian era.

manna from Heaven for any 
viewer whose imagination was 
sent into a flat spin by the BBCTV 
serialization of Weldon's novel 
The Life and Loves of a She-Devil 
which reached its eyebrow-raising 
climax on Wednesday night. Fay* 
Weldon, who ought to know 
because she wrote the book, 
implies that the real clue to 
understanding the odd behaviour 
of the discarded wife lies in female 
pain and masochism *- two qual- 
ities which, she says, are 
inexplicable unless we can be 
made 10 believe that women, as a 
sex, are changing. Moreover, she 
sees her story of the She-devil as a 
study in envy, more than an 
account of jealousy and revenge. It 
is good to have this clear-sighted 
view of a dark tale straight from 
the horse's mouth. And I found

• Best of the rest tonight: There is 
a second chance to see Alan 
Bennett’s remarkable play about 
Franz Kafka, The Insurance Man 
(BBC2, 9.00pm) which deserved - 
and got — the Royal Television 
Society's award for the best new 
play of 1985~. I managed to see 
only the closing moments of the 
Omnibus profile of the composer- 
singer Ray Charles (BBC1, 
10.25pm), but seeing what he did 
with the song Yesterday at his 
Royal Festival Hall concert earlier 
this year, made me kick myself for 
having missed the rest of the John 
Needham’s documentary.

Watford 

court 

Gibson’s 

scoring 

By Clive White 

Watford's determination 
not to be left behind in an; 
future breakaway by the major 
dobs was underlined when 
Graham Taylor, their man- 
ager, proposed yesterday to 
take the dob's spending to 
nearly £Im on players this 
season by signing Terry Gib- 
son from Manchester United 
for £300,000. 

Watford, who nine seasons 
ago were playing in the fourth 
division, have spent £2m on a 
new stand at their cramped 
Vicarage Road ground this 
season while still expressing a 
desire to move to a location 
with greater potential. On the 
the field, though, their ad- 
vance has been checked in the 
last two seasons by a falling in 
attack. 

Gibson is a a sharp, mus- 
cular little forward — and 
while at Coventry City, a 
proven goalscorer. Since mov- 
ing to Old TralTord nine 
months ago in an exchange 
deal involving Alan Brazil 
which valued Gibson at 
£600,000, he has made just 
three fall appearances. When 
his opportunity did come he 
suffered a knee injury. 

Gibson woald be linking 
with a former Tottenham 
team-mate in Mark Fako, 
though their previous associ- 
ation was mainly in the 
reserves. 

The ailing form of Blissett, 
Watford's former England 
international, prompted Tay- 
lor to pay £350,000 for Faico 
earlier this month. And in 
September, even after a deal 
involving the sale of Callaghan 
to Charlton Athletic feQ 
through, he spent £225,000 on 
Richardson, a goalscoring 
midfield player from Everton. 

Davies returns 

Gordon Davies, the former 
Welsh mfernationalforward, 
signed for bis old dob, Ful- 
ham, yesterday for £50.000 
from Manchester City. Da- 
vies, aged 31, has been given a 
contract lasting until May 
1989 and w01 play at Don- 
caster Rovers tomorrow. 

Agboola loan 

Charlton Athletic yesterday 
signed the Sunderland defend- 
er. Reuben Agboola on a 
month's loan. Agboola, aged 
24. who played as a sweeper in 
many of his 90 League games 
with his previous dab, 
Southampton. looks set to 
make his Chariton debut to- 
morrow against Arsenal 

Clough’s plan 

Brian C lough has sent his 
£175.000 Scottish signing, 
Brian Rke, on loan to Grimsby 
Town with the object of getting 
him back into the Nottingham 
Forest first team before 
Christmas. Clough signed 
Rice from Hibernian last sea- 
son but, after 22 games, be lost 
bis dace and has not had a 
look in this season. “He has 
more natural ability then most 
but he has to sort out the 
pbysical side of his game,” 
Clough said. 


Robson enjoys 
psychological 
edge over Osim 


Yugoslavia may lead the 
European Championship 
qualifying group four on goal 
difference but England are 
now ahead on psychological 
points. The 3-0 victory gamed 
by Bobby Robson’s side over 
Northern Ireland a fortnight 
ago is of substantially greater 
value than their rivaTs 4-0 win 
over the feeble Turks in Split 
on Wednesday night. 

Though technically skilful, 
the young and inexperienced 
Yugoslavs were uncertain in 
their approach against oppo- 
nents who were woefully inad- 
equate. Without moving a 
muscle except those control- 
ling his eyeballs, Robson is 
aware that be has established a 
significant advantage over his 
opposite number, Ivica Osim, 
for the potentially decisive 
fixture at Wembley on 
November 12. 

Robson realizes that he has 
no need to alter his own 
designs. “I saw nothing in 
Split to suggest that l should 
do anything to change the 
squad, the team or the way we 
are playing”, he said. If all of 
his representatives are avail- 
able. the list that he will 
announce on Tuesday is likely 
to include only one relative 
new name.

Russians pull out 
of Berlin matches 


The Soviet Union has pulled 
out of two friendly inter- 
nationals with West Germany 
next year, the West German 
football federation (DFB) said 
yesterday. The matches were due 
to be plaved in Tbilisi on March 
25 and in West Berlin on August 
29. The DFB said the Soviet 
Union had cited fixture conges- 
tion caused by European 
Championship qualifiers and its 
domestic league programme. 

But the DFB said the Soviet 
Union had indicated it was 
willing to play in a warm-up 
tournament in West Berlin be- 
fore the 1 988 European 
Championship in West 
Gennany.The match in West 
Berlin next year was doe to be 
part of the celebrations to mark 
the 75(hh anniversary of the city 
of Berlin. 

The Soviet Union's original 
acceptance to play caused some 


clave ringed by East German 
territory, is overseen by US, 
British and French forces, but its 
day-to-day non-military affairs 
are run by West Germans. East 
Berlin is the Soviet-controlled 
sector of the city, but the 
Communist East Germans long 
ago declared it their capital. 

Soviet-bloc nations have long 
objected to the staging of West 
German official ceremonies in 
West Berlin on grounds that the 
city is not a pan of West 
Germany. Meanwhile, the West 
objects to East German and 
Soviet conduct that passes off 
East Berlin as a capital city in its 
own stead. 

Soviet-led resistance dashed 
the German Soccer Federation’s 
plans to include West Berlin as a 
venue for the 1988 European 
championships that are io be 
held in West Germany, the 
newspaper Die Wett noted-To

Alongside him. Katanec 
consistently mistook the 
Turks for the ball and looked 
laughably out of bis depth as 
well as out of place and 
Mlinaric, though unmistak- 
ably gifted, lacked his usual 
accuracy. In spite of the 
profound deficiencies of their 
opponents, the Yugoslavs re- 
quired foreign assistance to 
score their first two goals. 

Tuce, one of five new caps, 
transformed them when be 
came on for the dosing stages, 
but he may again be chosen 
only as a substitute. "I am not 
going to be fooled”, Robson 
said. “They will play dif- 
ferently at Wembley. They 
will have to pick a team to 
counter our strength. 

"They wfl] be hard to break 
down and they have the 
technique to frustrate us by 
monopolizing the ball But I 
saw nothing to frighten us. 
Besides, I have enough op- 
tions in my squad to be able to 
solve any new problems they 
may set us on the night”. 

Robson feels, justifiably, 
that a victory over Yugoslavia 
in 12 days would make Eng- 
land heavy favourites to claim 
a place in the finals. Before he 
prepares his party for the 
challenge, he plans to confirm 
his own future. Next week he 
expects to "sort out a few 
personal details” and sign his 
new contract. 

Hard luck 
for hero 
Hardwick 

Steve Hardwick, the Oxford 
United goalkeeper, after help- 
ing to keep his club on the 
Wembley trail bas been told 
he will not be playing at 
Newcastle tomorrow. 
Hardwick, plagued by a pelvic 
problem, produced a string of 
superb saves in a 3-1 
Littlewoods Cup success 
against Sheffield United on 
Wednesday, his first game for 
10 months. 

Maurice Evans, the man- 
ager, said: “He will not be 
playing on Saturday because 
he isn’t fit enough.” 

David Hodgson booked an 
appearance against Liverpool 
his former club, tomorrow 
with a devastating treble for 
Norwich City to send Mill wall 
tumbling out of the 
Littlewoods Cup at Carrow 
Road. 

For Steve McMahon play- 
ing in the Littlewoods Cup is 
almost as good as winning the 
pools. He hit four goals in 
Liverpool's 1 0-0 third-round 
win over Fulham at Anfield 
and on Wednesday grabbed 
the scoring limelight again 
with a superb treble as Liver- 
pool eliminated Leicester City 
4-1.

Hagler is to lose his title

DOES SOMEONE in 
your family suffer from 
partial deafness? If so 
Hidden Hearing could 
have the answer with 
the world’s smallest 
hearing devices. 

Many people avoid seeking 
advice on hearing aids be- 
cause they still imagine 
them to be cumbersome 
contraptions which an- 
nounce deafness to the 
world. The truth is very 
different. Today. Hidden 
Hearing can correct most 
hearing problems with 
completely self-contained 
aids which are so small that 
they fit actually inside the 
ear itself! 

Hidden Hearing's quali- 
fied and experienced hear- 
ing ' aid consultants will 
carryout simple tests, either 
in the comfort of your own 
home or at their London 
clinic, to assess the type and 
extent of hearing loss. 

One form of hearing loss is 
very common with advanc- 


ing age, or just the stress 
and strain of modem living. 
When this type of deafness 
occurs, people often say they 
can hear people talking but 
can't understand all the 
words. This is just the sort 
of complaint that Hidden 
Hearing have corrected in 
many thousands of cases by 
use of tiny inconspicuous 
aids which fit snugly in 
the ear. They also offer a 

special plan for 

pensioners. ■ y]*

Marvin Hagler. the un-

champion, is to be stripped of 
his World Boxing Association 
title. James Binns, the World 
Boxing Association legal advi-

London promoter, last night 
The winner of the Herd 
G rah am — Mark Kaylor Euro- 
pean title bout at Wembley on 
November 4, will meet 
Thomas Hearns, of the United 
Slates, for the vacant title. 

The reason for the decison 
is that Hagler and Sugar Ray 
Leonard have derided to box 
over the World Boxing Coun- 
cil distance of 12 rounds and 
not the WBA 15 when they 
meet in ApriL They have also 


refused to pay the WBA 
sanction fees which is thought 
to total about $% million. 

Binns also told Barrett that 
Graham, ofSbeffield would be 
moved from his No. 2 pos- 
ition as contender to No. l, 
and his bout with Kaylor 
would automatically become • 
the final rfitninativr for -the 
world title. 

Hearns, who recently gave 
up his world light middle- 
weight title to become yt light 
heavyweight- was not avail- 
able for comment yesterday, 
but Emmanuel Steward, his 
manager, said from the Kronk 
gymnasium in Detroit that he 
was very keen for the match to 


go on. He said that as soon as 
Hearns gets back on Sunday 
from Florida, where he is on 
holiday, they would catch a 
plane for London. 

"It is a hot match, and I am 
sure that after the sudden turn 
of events Thomas will shelve 
the idea of' turning light- 
heavyweight and fight the 
winner of Graham pr>d 
Kaylor. Thomas and 1 will be 
flying io Loudon on Monday
