year and that the Government

Reasoning that the Alliance

prepared to pitch all in an 
appeal to the better instincts of 
the British people to make a 
priority of tackling the poverty

Britain today.

the company from visiting 
hospitals in the town of 
Evander, 60 miles south-east 
of Johannesburg, where the 
mine is located. Many were 
being treated for inhalation of 
poisonous fumes.

Pat Phoenix: fiery redhead . 

ByAIan Hamil ton 

- Pat Phoenix, the actress 
who played Elsie Tanner in 
Coronation Street, died in a 
Manchester hospital early yes- 
terday. aged 62/Miss Phoenix, 
who smoked 60 cigarettes a 
day. was recently diagnosed as 
sumring from lung cancer. 

A spokesman for the 
Alexandra Hospital at 
: Cheadle, where Miss Phoenix 
was admitted three-weeks ago, 
said the actress had died at 
8.45am, without pain. An- 
thony Booth, the actor whom 
: she married in her hospital 

room last week, was at her 

Her marriage, conducted m" 
private at her bedside by a 
Liverpool Roman Catholic 
priest who administered the 
last rites at the same time, 
received huge coverage in the 

popular press. 

Granada Television showed 
a half-hour tribute to her 
immediately after last night’s 
episode of the immensely 
popular serial. The Elsie Tan- 
ner character was written out 
of the script three years ago.

personality and private life to

being the illegitimate daughter

The Reagan Administra- 
tion, still smarting over the 
spying charges levelled against 
Mr Nicholas Daniloff, yes- 
terday ordered 25 employees 
of the Soviet mission at the 
United Nations in New York 
to leave by October 1. 

The State Department in- 
sisted that the move was not 
connected to the case of Mr 
Daniloff. an American 
journalist still detained in 
Moscow, but dearly its timing 
is meant to demonstrate 
Washington's continued out- 
rage and insistence that he be 
allowed to return to the US. 

The announcement came 
two days before critical talks 
open in Washington between 
Mr George Shultz, the US 
Secretary of State, and Mr 
Eduard Shevardnadze, the So- 
viet Foreign Minister, to ex- 
plore the prospects for a super- 
power summit meeting. 

The Reagan Administration 
is under strong right-wing 
pressure to take a tougher 
stand over the Daniloff affair 
and not to bold a summit 
meeting unless be is allowed 
to return home soon. 

Yesterday's move was ev- 
idently designed to assauge 
right-wing critics while at the 
same time not disrupting sum- 
mit preparations, at least for 
the present. 

Last March the US, accus- 
ing a large number of Soviet 
mission personnel at the UN 
of increased spying activities 
against the United States, 
announced that the Soviet 
mission must be reduced by 
I OS employees. 

The cuts ordered yesterday 
represent a first increment 
from 275-250, which the US 
expects to be followed by 
similar increments overa two- 
year period, reducing the mis- 
sion to 170. 

The Soviet Union has at- 
tacked the legality of the 

Mr Bernard Kalb, the Suite 
Department’s chief spokes- 
man, said: “The Soviet mis- 
sion has rebuffed repeated US 
requests to co-operate in im- 
plementing the necessary 
reductions by advising us 
which positions would be 
eliminated to achieve the 
ceilings established. As a re- 
sult. the US has been obliged 
to take steps of its own to 
ensure compliance." 

• Shultz agenda: The Reagan 
Administration has said that 
the case of Mr Daniloff. 
Moscow correspondent of the 
weekly magazine US News dE 
World Report, would be at the 
lop of Mr Shultz's agenda 
(Reuters reports). 

Mr Shultz said yesterday 
that the Administration will 
“do more than just scream" 
about the continued detention 
of the reporter, and that it had 
a plan of action. 

At the same lime admin- 
istration officials said that 
President Reagan would 
retaliate and that the move 
was imminent. They had 
pointed to today's State 
Department announcement as 
the first step. 

The Administration agreed 
with Moscow last week to the 
simultaneous release from 
prison of Mr Daniloff and Mr 
Gennady Zakharov, a Soviet 
UN employee, who arc now in 
the custody of their ambas- 
sadors pending trial on the spy 

US officials say they believe 
Mr Daniloff is innocenL 

Asked why the order to cut 
the Soviet mission had come 
two days before the Shultz- 
Shevardnadze talks, Mr Kalb 
said: “We saw no reason to 
wait till after." 

Pound hits record 
lowfgainst marie 

By Darid Smith, Economics Correspondent 

The pound fell sharply yes- 
terday, dropping below three 
marks for the first time. The 
Bank of England stepped in to 
limit sterling's decline. 

The pound fell by three 
pfennigs to DM2L9920. and 
the sterling index dropped by 
0.6 to 70.3, its lowest since 
Ftebruary 1985 when the 
pound almost suffered one-to- 
one parity with the dollar. 
Yesterday, the pound closed 
at a steady $1.4755. 

Dealers said the Bank of 
England moved in to steady 
the pound yesterday morning, 
but that the size of the 
intervention was not great. 
Earlier this month, the Bank 
raised 54 billion on the inter- 
national capital markets to 
boost Britain's gold and for- 
eign currency reserves. 

The pound was hit by 
renewed uncertainties over oil 
prices, with the price of Brent 
crude oil for delivery this 
month below $13.50 a barrel 
Herr Kari Otto Pochl. the 
president of the West German 
central bank, repeated his 
earlier determination not to 
cut German interest rates. 

Sterling's lower level is not 
- yet providing a sufficient 
boost to industry. There was a 
freak 3.4 per cent rise in 
industrial output in July, as 
North Sea production picked 
up from summer repair shut- 
downs. Manufacturing output 
rose by 0.9 per cent. Produc- 
tion trends remained flat. 

The pound's fall did not 
upset the stock market. The 
FT 30-share index rose by 13 
points to 1,275.2.

MPs call for 
for dump sites 

By Hugh Clayton, {jmronmtat Correspondent 

By Hugh Clayton, Env 

A call for compensation 
through the rates for house- 
holders who bad unwelcome 
public installations built near 
them was made yesterday by 

cause it often took far too long 
to produce results and because 
it offered too many loopholes 
for frivolous users. 

Sir Hugh said that if the 

ment, which brushed aside 
objections by the Govern- 

Nuclear waste dumps were 
given as an example by Sir 
Hugh Rossi. Conservative 
chairman of the committee. 

Sir Hugh isaid that 
compensation was a principle 
that had been rejected. "It is 
one that we reiterate and will 
continue to reiterate.” The 
suggestion was a part of a 
massive reform of the plan- 
ning inquiry system proposed 
by the select committee, after 
an investigation that began 
last January. 

All rates charged to the 
owners of installations judged 
unwelcome but necessary 
should be paid to the local 
community. Sir Hugh said. 
That could be done by leaving 
them out of government 
calculations of rate income for 
the area. 

If adopted, the proposal 
would mean that the rates 
paid on the Government's 
planned inland nuclear waste 
dump would go to villagers

The Greenpeace environ- j

manded that all Bn tain’s i 
atomic power stations should 
be closed down between 1988: 
and 1991 

The proposal was immedi-

(CEG8) as “impracticable and | 

The Greenpeace proposal is 
based on a study by Dr Mark 
Barrett and Dr Francois 
Nectoux, of Earth Resources 
Research, an independent ad- 
visory service. 

Its research estimated the 
increased use of coal, oil, gas 
and energy conservation in a 
non-nuclear Britain. The main 
power source would be two 
large new coal-fired stations to 
come into operation in 1995. 
and a smaller coal-fired Com-

Mr Colin Hines, of 
Greenpeace, said: “Lessons 
learnt coping with electricity

strike can obviously be put to 
use for the non-nuclear goaL" 

Mr John Baker, CEGB cor- 
porate managing director, 
said: “If there was a political 
decision to phase out nuclear 
power in Britain it would take 
at least 20 years to achieve." 

He said: “The proposal is 
ludicrous in terms of running 
an electricity supply system

ning rules. “Just imagine what 
it would mean in terms of 
public inquiries and com- 
pulsory purchase orders in

questions of national policy 
were involved, he said. "Hie

Shanghai and Canton will

An invitation for the Qneen 
to visit China has been 
omstnnding for several years, 
but was considered politically 

possible only after Britain and 

China had readied agreement 
on the handover of Hoag 
Kong, achieved at talks in 
Peking Id 1984. 

After her six-day visit to the 
mainland, the ffist by a British 
monarch, the Qneen mil sail 
from Canton on the Royal 
Yacht Britannia for a two-day 
visit to Hong Kong. 

The Government yesterday 
stepped, up its war of words 
over the coming round of pay 
settlements when Mr Kenneth 
Clarke, Minister for Employ- 
ment, demanded an end to the 
traditional notion of the “go- 
ing rate" for workers’ wage 
pac ket s. 

He was speaking after 
nearly a million local govern- 
ment manual workers had 
been offered a 6.7 per cent pay 
1 rise — well above the inflation 
, level of 2.4 percent 
~ Ministers are becoming 
increasingly alarmed at the 
prospect of a winter wages 
explosion destroying then- 
hopes of a foil in unemploy- 
ment next year and shattering 
a key plank in their election- 
winning strategy. 

Mr Clarke, speaking on 
BBC Radio 4, condemned the 
local government deal as ir- 
responsible and said it must 
not set a precedent for claims 
from other workers. 

“It mustn’t be imitated 
again ... The going rate must 
be brought to an end because 
it means pricing people out of 
jobs and making it more 
difficult to get Ihc un- 
employed into jobs. 

“We have got to make sure 
that other people have rises 
which reflect the rate of infla- 
tion, the foci that they don't 
need pay rises to maintain 
their living standards, and are 
actually rewards for better 
performance, profitability and 
higher productivity. 

“That’s how we've all got to 
earn more pay."

Mr Nigd Lawson, the 
Chancellor, has spoken about 
levels of pay settlements three . 
times in the past two weeks, 
and the local government deal 
was also denounced by Mr 
Nicholas Ridley, the Secretary , 
of State for Environment. 

Ministers will be watching

The Government's recom-

negotiate pay levels with their 
staff might lead to higher rates 
rather than the lower ones 
sought by ministers, some 
council leaders said yesterday. 

Several coondb in the 
Soath-east are locked into 
national pay agreements 
which made it hard to recruit 
key technical staff who could 
fnwawwi much higher pay in 
the private sector. Freedom 
from national pay agreements 
would enable councils to hid 
against private-sector salary

retary of State for the Earirow-

coaid not meet the 6.7 per cent 
pay rise agreed for a million

The 6.7 per cent award was

Rooker spells out 
housing scheme 

By Philip Webster, Chief Political Correspondent 

Strong new powers designed 
to give council tenants the 
right to take over the manage- 
ment of their estates from 
local authorities would be 
given by a Labour govern- 
ment, Mr Jeffrey Rooker, the 
party’s housing spokesman, 
promised last night 

In a speech which showed 
that the Labour Shadow Cabi- 
net is ready to meet head-on 
the criticism from some local 
authority bousing chairmen 
over the party’s council hous- 
ing policy, Mr Rooker told the 
officers that they had nothing 
to fear from giving tenants 

Under Labour’s plans ten- 
ants would be given the choice 
between simple participation 
and consultation rights or full 
control through management 

The emphasis given by' Mr 
Rooker to strong tenant 
management rights has upset 
the Labour-controlled Associ- 
ation of Metropolitan 
Authorities and council bous- 
ing chairmen. 

Taken along with the de- 
cision last year to change 
Labour policy to give council 
tenants the right to buy, Mr 
Rooker and the Shadow Cabi- 
net are being accused of 
weakening the case for council 
housing. The unspoken reason 
appears to be fear that the 
policies would reduce their 
own power. 

. But Mr Rooter’s comments 
-are fully in line with Labour 

policy as set out in its docu- 
ment Homes for the Future 
and approved at last year’s 
conference. - 

Last night he ser out 
Labour’s plans in a speech to 
residents on a large council 
estate in his Bir mingham 

Mr Rooker said that Labour 
would provide rights for ten- 
ants to control their home 
environment, a change of 
direction to give tenants the 
same freedom and control 
over their homes as owners 

He emphasized that 
Labour’s target was that peo- i 
pie were well-housed in a 
home of their choice at a price 
they could afford; people 
would decide to rent or buy 
from free choice. 

In remarks directed at 
doubting Labour authorities, 
Mr Rooker said dial manage- 
ment' by tenants did not mean 
that they themselves would 
have to deal with the complex 
housing issues that only pro- 
fessionally qualified staff 
could deal with. “Therefore 
'officers’ job satisfaction and 
enrichment will be bound to 
follow,” he said . . 

Under Labour's plans ten- 
ants will have rights to be 
involved in all derisions about 
new developments, have ac- 
cess to allocation and transfer 
systems and with safeguards, 
to their own files ut the 
housing departments. 

Mr Roy Hatlersley’s cam- 
paign for greater rigour in 
Labour spending plans bore 
fruit yesterday when Mr Mi- 
chad Meacher, the party’s 
health spokesman, pledged a 
new value-for-money drive in 
community case. 

Mr Meacher, who was car- 
peted by Labour’s shadow 
chancellor in the summer for 
making extravagant commit- 
ments, said that under Labour 
a watchdog body would be set 
up to monitor the costs and 
effectiveness of schemes 
aimed at asproving services 
for the old the mentally and 
physically handicapped and 
children with special needs.

Report confirms strong 

areas and poor health 

.. t t 

Fresh evidence that un- 
employment and deprivation 
is closely linked with ill health 
is contained in a report focus- 
mg on the North-cast. 

"Hie report, by Bristol 
University, backs up the find- 
ings in a 1980 report by Sir 
Douglas Black, former chief 
scientist at the Department of 
Health and Social Security. 

. The new study, commis- 
sioned by the Northern Re- 
gional Health Authority in 
678 local government wards, 
shows a consistent correlation 
between poor hgalth and so- 
cial inequality . 

The Black report showed 
the same link but Mr Patrick 
Jenkin, then Secretary of Stale 
for Social Services, dismissed 
its 37 recommendations as too 
cosily to implement. 

Professor Peter Townsend, 
one of the Black report au- 
thors, carried out the latest 
study. His report claims that 
nearly 1.500 deaths per 
annum in the region could be 
blamed on deprivation.

Fewer babies 
for single 

The number of babies born 
to unmarried teenage mothers 
in 1984 was almost half the 
figure for 1970 but abortions 
in Lhai same period rose, a 
family planning advice group 
said yesterday. 

The annual report of the 
Brook Advisory Centres said 
that in 1984 out of 1,000 
unmarried teenage girls aged 
between 15 and 19 almost 40 
gave birth, compared with 
more than 71 per 1,000 in 

The drop was matched by 
their conception rate, which 
fell from 8Z4 per 1,000 in 
1970 to 59.9 in 1984. 

The group said that un- 
wanted teenage pregnancies 
were being successfully 
combatted by improved sex 
education and a wider use of 
contraceptives, but women 
aged between 16 and 19 had 
more than half of late 

From 1973 to 1984 the 
abortion rate jumped from 
almost 11 for every 1,000 
teenage girls to 20. 

Concern over 
babies in jail 
with mothers 

More than 100 babies were 
received into prison during 
the past year and 669 have 
been bora there since 1975, 
the Howard League for Penal 
Reform said yesterday (Peter 
Evans writes). 

Pregnant women and 
women with young children, 
should not be sent to prison 
unless it is essential for the 
safety of the public, the league 

“Many of the women sent 
to prison are there for minor 
property offences, and their 
children are made to suffer,” 
Miss Frances Crook, the 
league’s director, said.

questions the morality and 
effectiveness of sending babies

Big changes likely in theatre subsidy

Radical changes in theatre

next Wednesday. 

A key recommendation will 
be guidelines for the transfer 
of productions from sub-

repetition of the recent con- 
troversy surrounding Sir Peter

admits he 
lied about 
the IRA 

By Michael HorsneQ 

An IRA Informer who 
tipped off the police about a 
plot to bomb a pnhlk house in 
Blackpool admitted yesterday 
that he had Bed repeatedly to 
Special Branch contacts. 

Mr Raymond O’Connor, 
aged 51, raid at the Central 
Criminal Court that once he 
had made contact, the officers 
pot constant pressure on him 
to provide inside Infonnation 
on the Provisional IRA for 
more titan two years and he 
felt he had to comply although 
it meant idling lies. 

Mr O’Connor was giving 
evidence at the trial of Thomas 
Maguire, aged 27, an alleged 
IRA intelligence officer who , 
denies conspiring with Patrick 

Magee and Patriot Murray to 
cause explosions in the United 
Kingdom between January 
1982 and April 1983. 

After Mr Maguire, a Dub- 
liner with an address in Black-

Mr O'Connor into an IRA plot 
to blow up the Eagle and Child 1 
public house near an Army i 
camp at Weetoa, he went to 
tbe police because be could not 
bear what was going on. 

Under cross-examination by 
Mr Michael Mansfield, for

said he regarded him as a son 
but realized he was getting into 

He had met Mr Maguire's 
mother, Muriel, in about 1970 
when they worked at a cafe in 
Blackpool and they lived to- 
gether for more than 10 years 
with her seven children. He 
said: “I treated him as if he 
were my own son. He was voy 
polite, treated me with respect 
and he was very fond of his 

Mr O'Connor said that he 
and Mr Maguire used to talk 
about Irish history when the 
younger man came to Black-

and agreed that he told him

for soldiers going to Northern

receiving a letter from Mr 
Maguire, he went to the

a hung Parliament 
after next election 

Dr David Owen, leader of 
the Social Democratic Party, 
yesterday mapped out the 
course that the party would 
take in the event or a hung 
Parliament after the next gen- 
eral election, and emphasized 
that the SDP could risk a 
second election. 

Dr Owen, speaking on the

full backing to the party’s

The new politics was about 
partnership, sharing power, 
co-operation not conflict in 
industry, and above all about 
national unity. 

After the election Labour 
would be dominated by the 
hard left In spite of their years 
m office the Conservatives 
could neither ring nor dance 
to a new tune, even ifone were 

scheme. He said that tax 
would be a big issue at the next 
general election and he rel- 
ished the prospect. 

The Conservatives under- 
estimated the conscience of 
the British people, he said, and 
hoped to bribe the voters. The 
SDP would tell the public the 
plain truth and they would 
respond generously. 

He said that after the next 
election, if Labour or the 
Conservatives wanted to do a 
shabby deal and let the other 
govern as a minority, let them 
do it and risk the con- 
sequences at the following 
election. They would pay a 
heavy price. 

Labour and Conservative 
politicans wanted to ignore 
the voters but the Alliance was 
determined to listen to them. 
Within a balanced Par- 
liament. the SDP was ready to 
negotiate to achieve as much 
of its programme as it could

vatives. taking into account,

Dr Owen strongly attacked 
Labour and Conservative 
policies, and said that it was to 
be hoped the next election 
would not be postponed until 
I98S. The further away the 
election the more would be 
delayed the derisions essential 
for national well-being. 

The country was already in 
the midst of a cynical pre- 
election consumer boom. In 
1955 and 1959 the Conser- 
vatives had bought votes only 
to take harsh economic mea- 
sures once the elections were 

He said:*The message will 
be the same this time. Vote 
now and pay later. Will voters 
fall for it again? I doubt it For 
this is going to be a very 
different election from any we 
have known since 1929. There 
are now three major contend- 
ers jockeying for position, 
instead of two. There is un- 



them. They had no option but 
to swallow their record. 

The only way to greater 
national unity and better gov- 
ernment was proportional 
representation, decentraliza- 
tion and freedom of informa- 
tion, hut the Alliance had to 
persuade others, Dr Owen 

The elusive goal of national 
unity would be frustrated if 
' the Conservatives and Labour 
were allowed to combine to 
prevent at least a third of the 
electorate having a say. Could 
the Alliance really be expected 
to let either of the two other 
parties take absolute power on 
a minority vote? 

“In a balanced Parliament 
the Alliance might easily have 
the largest number of votes, 
even though, through the lu- 
nacy of our electoral system, 
we might not have the largest 

number of seats. Equally im- 
portant, it is very possible that 
Labour or Conservatives 
might well find themselves in 
third place in terms of votes 
and even in the number of 
seats won. 

“We have a duty not to 
allow the voters’ wishes to be 

ignored. We can risk a second 
election. The voters are not 
stupid. They will know that 
any such election will only 
have been brought about by 
those politicians who refuse to 
listen to their views." 

Mrs Thatcher was trying to 
focus attention only on in- 
come tax and had the brass 
neck to lecture the SDP about 
. taxes. The average earner was 
now paying a higher direct tax 

Ulll UliUl 111 17/7. 

The country's tax and bene- 
fit structure was unfair. 

"We must act to end that 
injustice," he said "Our tax 
system has multiplied and 
mutated like a virus. The 
result is a depth of poverty in 
Britain which should be seen 
as a national disgrace." 

The inefficiencies and injus- 
tices of the tax and social 
security systems could be 
solved only by a radical 
structural reform. That either 
cost new money, which they 
could not afford, or by using 
existing money as the SDP 
had done to restructure. 

The SDP would not raise 
taxes. The restructuring pro- 
posed was costed by adding up 
the preseat direct tax take and 
present total benefit cost 
Whatever the basic tax rate 
was after the next general 
election, the SDP would sim- 
ply fit their structure to that 
rale. A lower basic rate, pro- 
vided they judged the econ- 
omy could finance it, would 
actually help soften some of 
the harder edges inevitable in 
any radical reform. 

Their reform grappled di- 
rectly with the genuine prob- 
lem of low pay, without 
Labour's inflationary folly of a 
statutory minimum wage. 
They were not raising taxes 
but making taxes simpler and 
more sensible. For die first 
time everyone would be hon- 
estly told their true tax 

The poverty trap would be 
abolished and the direct lax 
burden on families earning 
less than £1 80 a week substan- 
tially reduced. The burden of 
direct taxation would not be 
increased. At feast two out of

forth ending the SDP 

More choice oh rent backed 

Proposals for asocial hous- 
ing programme to increase 
opportunities for renting good 
quality homes at a reasonable 
price and offer choke to 
cornual and private tenants 
were endorsed by the 

The measures were con- 
tained in the SDP policy 
document Action on Homes: A 
Policy for Housing, published 
in August. 

However one key item, 
which would have pat a duly 
on local authorities to find a 
home for the homeless under 
18 and over 40 and ultimately 
for all, was rejected by 101 
votes to 88. 

It was argued that the 
pledge would reduce the 
party's credibility. The con- 


role, also inserted the propo- 
sition, by a large majority on a 
show of hands, that all social 
housing policy landlords who 
were not registered housing 
associations should be char- 
itable, benevolent, co-op- 
erative or other aon-profit- 
, making organizations. 

Mr Bruce Doqdas-Mann, 
the former MP who is par- 
liamentary. candidate for 
Mitcham and Mordea, feared 
that without that qualification 
three years of soda! housing 
policy work would be wasted. 

He accepted that not many 

Radnmuis would get through 
but there was a conflict be- 
tween the interest of a 
commercial landlord in his 
investment and the interest of 
a tenant in his home. 

Pension funds and befitting 
societies were interested in 
lending under the SDP pro- 
posals hot it was a new sphere, 
he said. They were only think- 
ing of going into it because of a 
shortage of alternatives. If the 
party was to give them an 
alternative, he said, they 
would not touch the SDP 

A move to leave out a 
proposed matching £1 for £1 
saving scheme to help first- 
time home buyers was rejected 
by the conference. 

Its plans for increased pub-

surveys were backed and the 
suggestion that sub-standard 
m! exorbitantly priced "bed 
and breakfast" accommoda- 
tion be phased out was carried. 

Da asfcfog the conference to 
endorse the policy document, 
Mr Michael Hancock, MP for 
Portsmouth Sooth, local and 
county councillor, said hous- 
ing in Britain was radically 
andfrjghteningfy wrong. Some 
£20 billion needed to be spent 
on council housing alone. 

. _Mr Douglas-Mum, moving 
his amendment, said that u 
they were to give (be same 

subsidy to private landlords as 
boosing associations, they 
would need machinery which 
was not set out in the policy

programme scheme would not 

Miss Moira Craig, par- 
liamentary candidate for Glas- 
gow, Cathcart, said the 
boosing picture in Scotland 
was very different from En- 
gland and Wales. Only a third 
of people there owned their 
own bomes-There were 70,700 
people living in rented homes 
described as below official 
tolerable standards. 

Mr Roy Evans, chairman of 
the SDP housing policy work- 
ing party, replying for the 
national committee, said the 
policy would cost money bat in

The cost of reducing suJ- 
phuremissions from all power 
stations in Britain was a 
challenge to the party * inter- 
nationalism that 
fcced, Mr Roger Liddk tow 
the conference. 

He was supporting an emer- 
gency motion, passed unani- 
mously, calling for 
comprehensive measures to 
coin bat add rain. 

Mr Lidtfle, who has the task 
of costing SDP policies for the 
national committee, said that 
the inadequate programme 
announced by the Central 
Electricity Generating Board 
to tackle the problem at three 
power stations would cost 
£780 million over 10 years. 

Such a programme would 
put the price of electricity up 
by 10 percent. 

“The cost should not be an 
excuse for running away from 
the fact that something has to 
be done," he said. 

Mrs Celia Goodbsrt, can- 
didate for Kettering, propos- 
ing the motion, said people 
did not want to end up 
wearing gas masks, living in 
an environment where fish 
were dying in polluted rivers 
surrounded by finally dam- 
aged trees and plants. 

. They wanted to breathe 
clean, safe air and to see the 
winds that blew across to 
Europe were not polluted. It 
was no good bleating about 
the cost - it had to be done.

an important contribution to

To observe Alliance con- 
ferences these days is rather 
like watching a pantomime 
horse. Fust we see the Social 
Democratic front legs m ac- 
tum. But not until the Liberal 
hind legs begin to move do we 
know whether the animal wifi 
step forward or sideways, or 
just foil down. 

At Harrogate this week the 
Social Democratic legs have 
not pot op a thrilling perfor- 
mance. but they have per- 
formed their allotted task. It 
has been - a deliberate con- 
ference and David Owen 
wound up the proceedings 
yesterday with a deliberate 

In his first conference 
speech as party leader at 
Salford three years ago. Dr 
Owen propounded the theme 
of toughness and tend ernes s. 
It is this balance between 
contrasting policies which is 
intended to be the distinctive 
characteristic of the SDP un- 
der his leadership. 

But up to now it has been the 
toughness that has been most 
in evidence. That has been 
partly because of bis personal 
style and partly because it has 
hew his firm stand on midear 
defence which has particularly 
captured public attention. 

Tender side 
of strategy 

We all came to Harrogate 
wondering whether there 
might be a row within his own 
party on this issue. With the 
matter satisfactorily resolved 
for (he moment in Sunday's 
debate - though perhaps the 
Liberals at Eastbourne may 
make ns reflect once again that 
a week is indeed a long time in 
politics - Dr Owen now took 
the opportunity to emphasize 
the tender side of his strategy. 

The heart of his speech was 
a forcefully argued justifica- 
tion of the party’s proposals 
for the relief of poverty. The 
Idea was dearly both to dem- 
onstrate that he is as person- 
ally committed to the party's 
social policies as he is on 
defence and to relate the 
scheme for reforming tile tax 
and benefit structure with 
other SDP policies. 

There is here both a high 
political risk and a coherent 
political strategy. A good deal 
has already been written about 
the risk. For an opposition 
party to produce a detailed 
plan, with notional figures 
attached, in such a com- 
plicated field is to offer a 
hostage to its critics. 

For this to be done by a 
small opposition party, which 
stands no chance of taking 
office on its own and therefore 
on being able to determine 
precisely what should be done 
in any field, does not seem to 
be very smart politics. There is 
the obvious danger of alarming 
potential losers without being 
able to help the potential 

But it is only fair to rec- 
ognize the deliberate political 
strategy. Social Democrats 
will be able to say to Labour 
spokesmen that they do not 
last talk about poverty; they 
have produced a plan and 
explained who will have to 
bear the cost. 

Sober party 
under control 

Dr Owen also set the SDP 
social policies in a broader 
context The emphasis is on 
national unity. A more active 
social policy ought, at least in 
theory, to contribute to greater 
social cohesion. This would 
not conflict with an equal

Safety procedures appar-

shortly before a train crashed 
through closed crossing gales

No one was injured in the

Icelandic cod landings 
keep Grimsby alive 

By John Young, Agriculture Correspondent 

Icelandic fish landings at 
Grimsby and Hull are break- 
; Ing all records. 

The landings: come 12 years 
after the “cod war", when the 
Royal Navy attempted un- 
successfully to prevent Iceland 
from extending its tem tonal 
waters from 12 to 50 miles. 

Mr Kenneth Beeken, sec- 
retary of the Grimsby Fish 
- Merchants’ Association, wel- 
comed the trade as helping to 
keep the port alive. 

The fish are caught by 
' Icelandic vessels ana ^ then 
transported to Humberside m 
container ships. 

According to Fishing News* 
about 35,000 tons of container- 
' ized fresh fish from Iceland 
will be auctioned at Holland 
Grimsby this year and is 
expected to fetch some £30 
million. About three quarters 
is cod, and the rest haddock 
. and plaice. 

Id 1984 shipments were 
little more than 10,000 tons, 
bat last year they increased to 
more than 25,000 tons, and 
this year more than 2 ©£W 
tons were landed in the first 
,six months. 

The boom has not been 
•welcomed by Icelandic proces- 
sors who complain that their 
own freeaer plants are being 
. starved of fish, and that their 
international export trait is 

• being damaged. 

The fishermen say the 
prices they get at home do not 

compare with those on 

• A “plaice war" appears to 
•be breaking oat in the North 
Sea in grounds where 
predominantly Dutch trawters 
are said to be “playing havoc” 
with boats from Grimsby. 

There have been several 
incidents involving Grimsby’s 
100 anchor seme-net boats 
and Dutch beam trawlers fish-

yesterday.’^There has been a 
steady increase in the number 
of incidents since February, 
when a complete set of nets 
worth £5,000 was lost 

It is so had that Grimsby 
fishermen are not prepared to 
tolerate it any longer.

Fears over 
‘hijack’ of

Euro tunnel 

By Martin Fletcher, Political Reporter

nel believe that the hit, 0 .™ —u: — « 

believe that the big feny 
companies operating out of 
Dover and Folkestone are 
attempting to hijack what is 
supposed to be a pioneering 
exercise in grassroots 

The companies have a clear 
interest in seeing that the 
tunnel is never bum and more 
than 4.000 local residents 
have petitioned against the £3 
billion project. 

MPs on the specially-con- 
vened select committee, 
which has moved from West- 
minster to the Kent coastal 
town of Hythe, do not dispute 
that the local objectors to Euro 
Tunnel have very genuine 
fears and grievances. 

Since Tuesday the commit- 
tee has heard many fearful 

to petition Parliament so she 
accepted Seaiink’s offer of 
help and was shown bow to 
draw up her petition.

companies aim to discredit 
the hearings by having them 
portrayed in the media as 
chaotic -thus, it is argued, 
undermining the financial 
credibility of' the whole 

On Monday, Sealink an- 
nounced that it was preparing 
to take the Government to the 
European Court of Human 
Rights in Strasbourg for rush- 
ing the Bill through Par- 
liament; and before the 
hearing opened on Tuesday, 
Mr Jonathan Aitken, the 
South Thanet anti-tunnel 
Conservative MP, denounced

mental pollution. 

A vicar said that vibrations 
would cause his graves to sink. 
A retired brigadier declared 
that the tunnel would be 
“Allah’s gift to terrorists". 
Inevitably, there are breeding 
grounds of rare crested newts 
that will be destroyed. 

Doubts arise because most 
of these objectors have been 
organized and advised by 
about a dozen agents who first 
told them how to submit their 
petitions to Parliament and 
are stage-managing their 
appearances before the 
committee. Most of these 
agents are employed by the 
ferry companies. 

Among the more prominent 
are Gwyn Prosser and Tony 
Neumann, ships officers and 
! members of the ferry officers’ 
union. NUMAST, who are 
employed by Sealink Ferries, 
the Sea Containers subsidiary 
which put in its own un- 
successful bid for the project 

Another is Mr Robbie 
Browne-Claydon, a London 
parliamentary consultant 
representing 120 petitioners. 

' His clients include Felixtowe 
’and European Ferries. There 
are many other examples. 

Even protesters with no 
direct ferry company connec- 
tion admit receiving advice 
from them. Claire Beckett, a 
Sattwood antique shop owner. 


Interviewed on BBC Radio, 
Mr Peter Snape. a Labour MP 
and member of the commit- 
tee, claimed to have evidence 
that Sealink had collected 
names of people who wanted 
to protest, even in some cases 
paying their £2 petition fee. 

“They are determined to 
sabotage this scheme We are 
concerned to hear people who 
property want to make objec- 
tions. They are likely to be 
squeezed out because of the 
disgraceful behaviour of 
Sealink," Mr Snape said. 

None of the agents denies 
connections with the port 
feny industry. While none 
admits to actually being paid 
to foment protests, as Mr 
Snape has suggested. Sealink 
concedes that it has been free 
with advice, while Townsend 
Thoresen certainly condones 
the sending out of letters to all 
its employees inviting them to 
petition. It is 'perfectly legiti-

Black workers bear the brunt of gold mining conditions 

Mine disaster 
' ends decline 
in fatality rate 

From Michael Hornsby, Kinross Gold Mine, Smith Africa 

The disaster at the Kinross 
gold mine in the Transvaal 
the second worst mining ac- 
cident of any kind in South 
Africa, came at a time when 
the appallingly high finality 
rate at gold mines was star ting 
to decline. 

For a long time the number 
of people, the vast majority of 
them black, who died each 
yrax seldom dropped below 
600. Over the past 2% years, 
however, the Chamber of 
Mines was able to point to a 
marked improvement in this 
grisly record. 

In 1984, 592 gold miners 
were killed in accidents. The 
deaths dropped to 528 in 
1985, and in the first six 
months of this year fell still 
further, when the finality rate 
per 1 .000 workers was r unnin g 
at 0.88, the first time it had 
fallen below one. 

The comparative fatality 
rates for 1984 and 1985 were 
1.18and 1.03 per 1,000 respec- 
tively, showing the decHning 
trend which has now been 
shattered by the Kinross 

It is probabfy not accidental 
that the improvement in the 
figures roughly coincided with 
the emergence three years ago 

never been successfully un- 
ionized before. 

The NUM, under its Gen- 
eral Secretary, Mr Cyril 
Ramaphosa, has mart** the 
issue of mine safety a main 
feature of its negotiations with 
die Chamber of Mines, which 
represents mining companies. 

Last year a report mi mine 
safety, commissioned by the 
NUM from the Department of 
Sociology at the University of 
the Wrtwatersrand, strongly 
Criticized the mining plants 
for lax or apathetic attitudes 
towards safety regulations. 

The companies concede 
that the fatality rate at gold 
mines is high by world stan- 
dards, but in mitigation plead 
the unique conditions under 
which gold is mined here. 

Between 450.000 and 500,- 
000 blades work in than at an 
average working depth of 
about one mile, where rock 
temperatures and pressures 
are intense and rails and 
“Tockbursts” are frequent 
causes of accidents. 

The Chamber of Mines can 
point to a sharp drop in 
accidents at gold mines since 
the late 1960s. In 1968 the 
accident rate was 64.1 per 
1.000 workers employed, and

NUM officials counter this 
claim, however, by pointing 
out that a worker has to be 
sufficiently seriously injured 
for him to be unable to 
perform his normal shift for 
14 days before an accident is 
considered necessary to be 
reported, a period much 
longer than that observed in 
most mining countries. 

Compensation to families

From Paul Valleh 
New York 

An investigation has been 
launched into the activities of 
a mysterious saboteur who has 
been tampering , with experi- 
ments at America’s leading 
. Aids research laboratory. 

Officials at the Centres for 
Disease Control in Atlanta 
have this week revealed that 
for the past five months 
experiments 'have been delib- 
erately interfered with in a 
laboratory where work has 
been conducted on the 
relationship between Aids and 
herpes viruses. The saboteur is 
apparently someone who has 
legitimate access to the 

Aids Weekly, a newsletter 
based in Atlanta, has pub- 
lished a copy of a memoran- 
dum from Dr Gary Noble, 
l assistant director of science, to 
the director of the centres, 
which revealed that from 
April to August at least “five 

separate incidents of sus- 
pected intentional tampering 
with laboratory experiments 
have occurred in the viral 
exambems and herpesvirus 

The attempts to spoil the 
research work have involved 
the shutting off of carbon 
dioxide supplies to incubators 
containing cultures of the 
. viruses, as well as alterations 
to temperature controls to 
agnate the samples. 

On three occasions the 
saboteur’s tactics have neces- 
sitated the repetition of 
months of work, though the 
research on the Aids— herpes 
link has now been successfully 

The motive for the inter- 
ference is unclear to security 
experts. The question of 
politically motivated sabotage 
by local right-wing, religions 
fundamentalists, who see Aids 
as a divine retribution on a 
decadent society, has been 
raised, but scientists at the' 

centres are Inclined to think 
that it may be the work of 
some disgruntled employee. 

“There is always the , 
possibility that all these in- 
cidents were accidents. That is 
why we have launched the 
investigation,” a spokes- 
woman at the centres said. 

There was no evidence at 
this stage ihat sabotage was 
directed primarily at the Aids 
research. “Very few people 
would know that Aids re- 
search was carried out in this 
branch,” she added. 

One theory was that some 
employee was spoiling experi- 
ments as a protest against 
recently introduced manage- 
ment changes. 

Entry to the laboratories is 
normally possible only by a 
top security card-key number, 
which is computer-controlled. 
Checks on the computer files 
have shown that all the people 
who entered the building at 
the crucial times were “deem- 
ed appropriate.” 

“We were locky. The 
ventilation system took the 
smoke to every level of the 
mine, bat by the time it 
reached os, it was diluted. 

Mr Grenfefl, married with 
three children aged 11, 10 and 
five, added: “The rescue teams 
were fantastic. They went into 
action straightaway and de- 
serve every praise.”

From Christopher Walker 

Soviet theatregoers are soon 
10 see a remarkable dramatiz- 
ation of the Chernobyl nuclear 
disaster, written by a senior 
journal in from Pnzvda and 
filled with bitter criticism of 
aspects of official behaviour 
both before and after the 
explosion on April 26. 

The play contains scathing 
references to the failure to 
organize the immediate evac- 
uation of tens of thousands of 
citizens from the danger zone 
and also portrays senior op- 
eratives at the stricken plant in 
the Ukraine complaining an- 
grily about the poor qualily 
and late delivery of certain key 
pieces of safety equipment. 

Written in a deliberately 
populist style by Vladimir, 
Gubarev, the Pravda Science ' 
Editor, who was on the spot in 1 
the dangerous aftermath of the 
disaster, the play paints a 
disturbing piaure of how 1 
freshly picked cucumbers , 
were being sold and open-air 
football games being played 
on April 26 as the nearby plant 
was spewing out radiation. 

The play avoids making any 
distinction between the fic- 
tional and faaual, but its 
account of the various short- 
comings is expected to make it 
one of the most controversial 
performances seen on the 
Soviet stage in recent years. 

Introducing his first attempt 
at playwriting, Mr Gubarev 
said it was the best medium to 
bring home to the Soviet 
people what he had found. 
rA senior Western diplomat 
said that it was “unprece- 
dented” for a Soviet domestic 
catastrophe to be handled on 
the stage in such an open 
fashion and so quickly after it 
bad taken place. “It is the 
most convincing example 10 
dale of the change in the 
cultural climate taking place 
under Gorbachov ” he said. 

As well as the criticism, the 
play also contains a number of 
harrowing scenes depicting 
the suffering and heroism of 
some of those caught up in the 
world’s worst nuclear disaster. 

In one poignant scene, a 
Soviet militia general who has 
voluntarily been supervising 
work close to the blazing 
reactor suddenly discovers 
large clumps of his hair falling 
out as he combs it. 

Entitled Sarcophagus in ref- 
erence to the yet unfinished 
process of entombing the crip- 
pled Chernobyl reactor in 
thick concrete, the play is now 
under rehearsal in a number of 
Soviet theatres. Long extracts 
have already been published 
in the Communist Party Cen- 
tral Committee's paper, Sov- 
ietskaya Kultura. a rare

UN commander welcomes Amal offer 

Death threat for attacks on Unifil 

From Robert Fisk 

In an unprecedented align- 
ment with the Shia Muslim 
Amal the commander 

of the United Nations force in 
southern Lebanon yesterday 
enthusiastically endorsed a 
militia promise to put to death 
anyone att a cking UN troops in 
the country. 

At the same time, Amal 
officials, who are already hold- 
ing five men for a soles of 
attacks oa UN soldiers, 
claimed that a demonstration 
in l>re by thousands of villag- 
ers in support of the UN 
provided a mandate for them 
to “execute” anyone held 
responsible for the l andmi ne 
explosions which have killed 
five UN soldiers and wounded 
many others. 

The Amal decision, and the 
UN’s approval of it, marks a 

turning-point in the long saga 
of the international army in 
southern Lebanon. 

It places the UN firmly 
behind Amal in its struggle 
against the pro-Iranian Hez- 
bollah “Party of God” militia, 
bat it also raises grave moral 
issues, as Antal's victims are 
unlikely to be given any form 
of triaL 

Since the UN itself has no 
iadiczaf power m Lebanon, its 
officers probably had tittle 
option hot to accept what is m 
effect Amal's qnasHudiaal 
protection. Nor can it go on 
accepting fatalities on the 
present scale. 

But Major-General Gustav 

MW y mm/ulio BK 

words yesterday when I asked 
him what be thought of Amal's 
promise to “execHte” those 
attacking die UN. i hope tins 
promise will be kept,” he said 

If those who were attacking 
UN troops were “brought to 
justice”, the general com- 
mented, it would have a good 
effect on the morale of Unifil 
as well as on a population 
which supported the UN’s 
mission and disapproved of 
the killings. 

But he revealed that he had 
already ordered the French 
contingent, which is most' 
vulnerable to attack, to with- 
draw from 11 of its 30 outposts 
in the French battalion area 
around the village of Marr- 
akeh, -and after some thought 
he conceded that he intended 
“to do some redeploying of the 

General Hagghmd seems to 
be a tougher, more forceful 
character titan his Irish prede- 
cessor, Major-General Wil- 
liam Callaghan, though he 
was a trifle rueful when 1 
asked him about the “outrage” 
expressed by M Jacques 
Chirac, the French Prime 
Minister, when he heard that 
the general had taken a holi- 
day while the French UN 
Contingent was under daily 

“I am a United Nations 
employee,” General Hagghmd 
replied. “I cannot comment on 
what the Prime Minister of 
France says. I can only com- 
ment on my holiday. -I am 
happy 1 am back.” 

H e had taken only two 

weeks' leave in tire past two 
years, he explained, and felt it 
was time to see his family 
again. “After Mr (Marrack) 
Goulding (the UN Under- 
secretary General for Political 
Affairs) visited this area to see 
die situation, he decided to 
authorize a leave for me on the 
understanding that, if the 
sitnatiou got worse, I would 
return ... I was called to 
return by Mr Goulding.” 

General Hagghmd is a slim, 
rather ascetic figure who can 
neve tireless exhibit consid- 
erable anger when talking of 
the death of his troops. The 
killing of Lieutenant Angus 
Murphy, tire Irish officer 
blown up by a landmine on a 
dirt trade near tire village of 
Yater last month, was “a 
particularly dreadful thing,” 

The bomb had bees con- 
trolled by men who could see 
their target dearly and in- 
tended to kin UN troops. “The 
Irish had been receiving a 
number of threats not to use 
that road,” be said. 

There had been objections 
because UN soldiers defused 
mines along the track which 
had been laid for the Israelis 
and their Lebanese allies. 

The UN may at least take 
some comfort from the events 
in Tyre yesterday. Despite the 
fear expressed by some shop- 
keepers In Tyre, many thou- 
sands of ordinary Shia men 
and women were prepared to 
demonstrate in the city on the 
UN’s behalf, holding banners 

which proclaimed their insis- 
tence that the UN must stay. 

When General Ha&ftmd 

addressed them from the roof 
of the UN’s logistic amt on the 
Tyre seashore, his declaration 
that bis soldiers had come to 
help “the poor and deprived 
people of southern Lebanon” 
was greeted by cries of 
“ABahu Akbar” (God is 
greater) bom Shot gunmen, 
village couples and many 
young giris, some of whom 
were dressed in blade chadors 
and holding AK 47 automatic 

Mr AbdaFMajid Saleh, tire 
most prominent Amal official 
in Tyre, said that it would be a 
“catastrophe” if the UN left 
while Daoud Daoud, the more 
popular of the organization’s 
militia leaders, spoke in blood- 
thirsty terms of how “we shall 
chop off the hands and cot off 
the heads of all those who 
attack UniST”. 

His aides said that he meant 
what be said, but that those 
guilty of killing Unifil soldiers 
would be shot in Beirut. 

Yet Amal may have its work 
cut out The French contingent 
came under rocket fire near 
the village of Ein Baal yet 
again on Tuesday evening. 
And Amal’s power over the 
Hezbollah is steadily waning 
in the south, just as it has 
almost crumbled in many Shia 
areas of west Beirut. 

The turbaned sheikhs and 
bearded Amal gmunen who 
mingled with the smartly- 
dressed UN officers, in Tyre 
yesterday have taken a gamble 
in protecting the UN, just as 
the UN is gambling on Antal's 
survival in southern lebanoo. 
It is a dangerous game.

Libya seeks censure of US raids 

Light Roast. 

■ smooth, delicate flavour 

From Zoriana Pysariwsky 
New York 

Libya has obtained the. 
inclusion in the agenda of the 
new General Assembly an 
item aimed against the United 
States for the reprisal raids last 
ApriL in a move to .isolate 

The steering committee ap- 
proved the Libyan request 
without a vote .on Tuesday 
after the American delegate. 
Mr Herbert Okun, raised no. 
formal objection. Tradition- 
ally the US does not oppose 
the adoption of items for the 
UN agenda even if Wash- 
ington is the principal taxget. 

But Mr Okun made plain 
that the US reserved its right 
to m%ke its own chaises 

against Libya, arising out of 
the bombing ofa West BerDn 
discotheque frequented by 
American troops. It was that 
incident in which an Ameri- 
can soldier was killed, along 
with a Turkish woman, that 
led to the American air strikes 
against Tripoli and Benghazi 

Libya’s move is intended to 
buffer it from further US 
strikes. But if its lack of 
enthusiastic support in the 
Security Council is carried 
over to the assembly its 
propaganda campaign against 
Washington win be for from 

A majority of Third World 
members, although feeling 
compelled 10 chasten the 
Reagan Administration for 

attacking one of its own, sees 
Libya as a menace and pri- 
vately believes it got what it

Assembly turned yesterday to 
the problem of Namibia, with 
African delegates presenting 
new demands for comprehen- 
sive sanctions against South

tory in defiance of repeated

Populist preacher uses 
television link-up to 
join race for presidency 

From Michael Bin von, Washington 

From Michael Binyon, Washington 

The Rey Pat Robertson, the cheaper than a postal cam- sought public office, but he 

paifp. Mr Robertson's own * 

popuhsi evangelical preacher 
and head of America's largest 
Christian broadcasting net- 
work, declared last night that 
he was entering the 1988 
president race. 

Speaking from Washington 
last night by closed-circuit 
television to more than 
200,000 people in 216 sites 
around the country, 'Mr 
Robertson said he intended to 
seek the Republican nomina- 
tion if he could gainer the 
signatures and support of 
three million people. It is 
believed to be the first time 
that a leading presidential 
contender has used television 
to launch bis race. 

Though not yet an officially 
declared candidate, Mr Rob- 
ertson’s long-expected entry 
into the crowded field has 
thrown Republicans into dis- 
array. The leading contenders, 
such as Mr George Bush, the 
Vice-President, Congressman 
Jack Kemp and Senator Rob- ' 
ert Dole, see him as a spoiler, 
who will siphon off a large 
number of key voters on the 
party’s right wing and become 
a powerful magnet for the 
religious conservatives who 
helped President Reagan enter 
the White House. 

In particular, his experience 
in broadcasting, reaching a 
flock of up to 17 million 
people five days a week, gives 
him a big advantage in a 
campaign where television 
will play a larger role than ever 

Mr Robertson's aides said 
that the closed-circuit broad- 
cast from Constitution Hall in 
Washington to audiences in- 
vited to gather at selected 
tints around the country was 
to be cost-effective and

empire is no stranger to. 
politics. Aged 56 and the son 
of a former Virginia senator, 
he has taken an increasingly 
political stand on abortion, 
school prayers and a return to 
traditional family values. 

Despite a public humility 
which insists that his decision 
on a candidacy depends en- 
tirely on “God's wflT, Mr 
Robertson is adept at using 
theatre and oratory to rouse 
his supporters.

He bought his television 
network — on God's instruc-

$70 and a $37,000 loan. His 
business skill has now built

Magic works for 
another Kennedy 

From Michael Binyon, Washington 

But with a degree from Yale ation of the US defence bnikf- 
Universiiy, a good military up- 



record in Korea and an affable 
manner, he comes across less 
harshly, and to many people 
less threateningly, than other 
fundamentalist campaigners, 
such as the Rev Jerry Fialwell,

His constant mixing of re- 
ligion and politics, however, 
has given ammunition to his 
critics, who have accused him 
of violating the constitutional 
separation of church an d stale. 

And though he entered the 
pre-primary manoeuvrings in 
Michigan last month, be fell 
way behind Mr Bush and Mr 
Kemp, and appeared to alien-

with his biblical strictures.

French terrorist 
reward pays off 

From Diana Geddes, Paris 

The Government's unprece- 
dented decision to offer a 
reward of up to 1 million 
francs (£100,000) for informa- 
tion about the recent spate of 
Paris bombings has already 
produced its first frint. 

The discovery off a cache of 
about 90 lb of explosives, 10 
grenades, and more than 80 
detonators was announced by 
the Interior Ministry yes- 

The offer of the reward, 
together with the photographs 
of two Lebanese brothers the 
police are particularly in- 
terested in q uestion i n g, went 
np on 200,000 posters 
throughout France yesterday. 

One of the two men is 
apparently suspected of hav- 
ing carried oat the bomb 
attack at a cafeteria at La 
Defense last Friday, in which 
41 ncople were injured. 

His photograph apparently 
fits the description given by 
eye-witnesses of a man seal 
R unning away from the scene 
shortly before the Mast. 

While the Government's 
move in appealing for wit- 
nesses has been generally 
welcomed, two national news- 
papers - the respected In- 
dependent daily Idb&ratton 
and the Communist paper 
PHumamti— refused to print 
the photographs of the two 
men, against whom no charges 
have yet been brought and 

condemned what they saw as 
Indtemeat for people to ten 
mfonners against their neigh- 

The two men shown on the 
poster are Manrice and Robert 
Ibrahim Abdallah, younger 
brothers of Georges Ibrahim 
Abdallah, leader of the Leba- 
nese Armed Revolutionary

Moves to 
end Danish 
squat crisis 

From Oinstopber Follett 

There was an uneasy calm 
in the East End of Copenhagen 
yesterday as hectic negotia- 
tions continued to find a 
peaceful end to the four-day- 
old occupation of a con- 
demned block of flats by 200 
masked squatters. 

Police said that all was quiet 
near the bouse in the Osterbro 
quarter which the squatters 
occupied on Sunday. They put 
up street barricades after they 
were threatened with eviction 
by the local authorities. 

There were fears of a big 
confrontation at the beginning 
of the week when squatters, 
hurling stones and petrol 
bombs, injured 10 riot police- 
men. Nine people were ar- 
rested. However, there have 
been no further attacks on the 
police surrounding the block. 

Private organizations and 
citizens' groups have offered 
to purchase the condemned 
building and let the squatters 
live on there, if the Copen- 
hagen city authorities agree. 

Intense negotiations went 
on throughout yesterday in an 
attempt to resolve the crisis. 

The squatters belong to an 
action group known as the 
“BZ'ers/’ The group has often 
won support from sections of 
the political left in Denmark 
for its squatting actions. 

Copenhagen suffers from a 
serious housing crisis, and a 
shortage of accommodation 
for young people in particular. 

His critics say bis feitb- 
healing activities may rouse 
scepticism am ong many vot- 
ers, and that his lack of 
political experience will begin 
to tell as he comes under the 
intense public scrutiny given 
to all presidential aspirants. 

But leading Republicans are 
taking Mr Robertson seri- 
ously. and are already prepar- 
ing their counter-attacks. 

Mr Joseph Kennedy, the 
eldest son of the late Senator 
Robert Kennedy, yesterday 
comfortably won his primary 
race in Boston for the seat 
once held by his node, John. 
He is now virtually assured of 
election to Congress in 

Mr Thomas O'Neill, the 
Speaker of the House, was 
among die first to congratulate 
Mr Kennedy, who tes been 
chosen as the Democratic 
candidate for a seat Mr 
O'Neill has held for the past 
34 years, 

Mr Kennedy, aged 33, an 
early favomife in a crowded 

field of 11 can did a t es, won 58 
per cent of the vote compared 
with 25 per cent for Mr Geuf y-e 
Bochrach, a Massachusetts 
state senator and his nearest 

Mr Kennedy played his 
family connections like a well- 
tuned orchestra. His adviser 
behind the scenes was Mr 
Richard Gordon, tus father's 
speechwriter. His grand- 
mother, Mrs Rose Kennedy, 
figured in all his speeches to 
tbe elderly. 

Although Senator Edward 
Kennedy did not actively sup- 
port his nephew, Mr Bach- 
raefa's supporters said he 

worked quietly on his behalf. 

Mr Kennedy, who had sup- 
ported the bom blog of Libya, 
showed his rapier repartee in a 
television debate with Mr 
Bachrach. His opponent ac- 
cused a subsidiary of the 
Kennedys' Citizens Energy 
Corporation of borrowing 
money from a consortium that 
included three Libyan banks. 

“Are you in bock to Mr 
GadaffiT", Mr Bacbrach dem- 
anded. Bristling, Mr Kennedy 
replied: “Libya offered asylum 
to Sirhan Sirhan after be 
killed my father." Mr Bacb- 
rach dejectedly admitted a few 
days later that the response 
was a “show-stopper". 

Stockholm seenrity conference 

Delegates on brink 
of historic deal 

From Christopher Mosey, Stockholm 

Delegates to the Stockholm 
security conference will meet 
tonight to thrash out the last 
details of an historic East- 
West agreement which will 
limit the risk of war in Europe 
and aims at providing the 
foundation for a better at- 
mosphere in international 

There is every indication 
that this accord - the first 
since Sail 2 - will be ready by 
the conference deadline to- 
morrow. but there could even 
be provision for tbe con- 
ference clock to be stopped 
over tbe weekend as delegates 
iron out any last-minute 

However. Dr Wolfgang 
LoibL bead of the Austrian 
delegation, told a press con- 
ference organized by the neu- 
tral and non-aligned countries 
yesterday: “Most of the prob- 
lems are solved and those left 
are, in my judgment, of a 
minor, linguistic importance." 

The Stockholm agreement, 
likely to be about 20 pages of 
complex diplomatic phraseol- 
ogy, will allow for on-site 
inspection of military man- 
oeuvres in both Eastern and 
Western" Europe, marking an 
important breakthrough as it 
is the first time the Soviet 
Union has agreed to such a 

It will stipulate that any 
troop manoeuvres involving 

more than 75,000 men must 
be notified two years in 

It will contain paragraphs 
on non-use of force and_ the 
importance of human rights 
and will reaffirm the inter- 
national community’s deter- 
mination to fight terrorism. 

Dr Loibi said: “A few 
months ago, no one would 
have believed such measures 
as on-site inspection or air 
inspection of military man- 
oeuvres could be possible. 

“Think about what was 
possible 10 years ago and 
think about what we have 
achieved today, and it be- 
comes still more remarkable. 

“Even in 1984 I would 
never have believed we could 
come so far." 

Mr Curt Lidgard, head of 
the Swedish delegation, de- 
scribed the forthcoming agree- 
ment as the first phase of a 
European disarmament pro- 
gramme. "It is necessary to 
have a firm foundation, and 
this is precisely what we are 
trying to achieve in Stock- 
holm," he said. 

A statement issued yes- 
terday by the Polish delega- 
tion also intimated that 
agreement was close. 

“Almost the entire text of a 
concluding document is readi- 
er nearly ready." it said. “The 
successful conclusion of our 
work is only a step away."

has to be carefully tenaed. 

At English Estates, we've matured into the 
largest developers and managers of industrial 
and commercial property in England 

Hardly surprising when you consider that 
we've had fifty years experience in the field 
m that time, we've planted over 38 million 
sqJt of property in our plot, at more than 500 
locations, whereprivate property developers do 
not wish to be involved 

And we've taken care to cultivate small 
local businesses as well as major national and 
international companies. 

At present, 113,000 people are working in 
our properties. In feet last year alone, over 1,600 
businesses moved in with us. 

We feel this is a sure sign of our success. 

VVe offer a wider range of properties than 
anyone else in England And we can custom 
build premises; each individually designed to 
meet specific needs. 

But our service doesn't end when the 
building does. Wfe ensure that our estates are 
carefully tended to maintain an environment 
in which businesses can bloom. 

And because we have 16 offices up and 
down the country we are always on hand to 
offer help and advice. 



The Developing Agency 

For example we can put companies in touch 
with the relevant national and local *ggtgtir>g 
agencies. And advise them where they can go 
for details of grants and other forms of financial 
aid they may be entitled to. 

In certain areas, we can even provide a 

specialist business adviser to get to the root of 

any problems that may crop up. 

As you have probably realised by now, we 

do everything we can to help the businesses in 

our care to flourish and grow 

And that's what has made us an important 

part of England's business success. 

So while the other two agencies have been 
working in their parts of Britain, we've been 
carefully tending a fairly large plot of our own.

Compensation for fall-out victims

These were the main points 
to emerge yesterday from 
Canberra s response to the 
recommendations, m ad e nine 
months ago, by the royal 
commission into British nuc- 
lear tests conducted in the- 
Outback in the 1950s and 

In a statement to Par- 
liament Senator Gareth Ev- 
ans, Minister for Energy and 
Resources, announced that 
the Government bad accepted 
one of the coramissioa's key 
proposals — that compensa- 
tion normally reserved for 
government employees, such 
as servicemen, be extended to 
Aborigines and other dviUans 
who might bave been affected 
by radiation. 

As for two other main 
recommendations, . Senator 
Evans said Canberra had dis- 
missed the proposal for a 
national register of fell-out 
victims and would continue to 
press the British Government

said he thought there was “a 
reasonably good chance” that 
Britain would accept some 
responsibility for a new clean- 
up, given the new evidence on 

An “atmosphere of pleasant 
diplomatic discussion” had 
characterized .negotiations so 
fer, he said. Nothing would be 
served by “diatribes” of the 
sort which haddogged the 
issue at one time. 

Senator Evans is to hold 
talks in London on October 4 
with Lord Treigame, Minister 
of Stale for Defence Procure- 
ment The discussions will 
centre on Australia's request 
for about SAus 1.7 million 
(£680,000) over the next two 
years towards further studies 
on how best to decontaminate 
the Maralinga range of 22 leg 
of scattered and buried pluto- 
nium fragments. 

A technical advisory group 
of Australian and British sci- 
entists has identified six stud- 
ies which are necessary to 
make such an assessment, and 

Canberra has asked Britain to 
fund half the SAus 3.4 million

Senator Evans said there 
was no clearly identifiable 
figure for the cost of the actual 
clean-up, which could range 
from SAus 35 million to 
SAus 250 million. 

He was no more specific on 
what the Australian Govern- 
ment has let itself in for by 
opening the door to civilian 
claims for compensation. It 
could be anything from two to 
300, he said. 

By one estimate, between 
200 and 300 people could each 
win a successful claim of 
about SAus 100,000. But the 
number of cancer cases which, 
it had been estimated, would 
result from the low radiation 
levels was only two or three, 
he added. 

“So whether any individual 
will be able to establish these 
claims, very much remains to 
be seen," Senator Evans said. 

A spokesman for the Liberal 
opposition said that the 
Government's response, since 
the commission report was 
tabled Iasi December 5, dem- 
onstrated that the exercise had 
been an embarrassment and 
waste of money.

Poland offers olive 
branch to critics 

From Roger Boyes, Warsaw • 

Poland's authorities were 
open to political proposals 
and ideas from non-com- 
munists after the recent am- 
nesty of dissidents and 
Solidarity activists, General 
Wqjciech Jaruzelski, the Pol- 
ish leader, said yesterday. 

The general, in a speech to 
Communist delegates that was 
to be broadcast nationwide 
last night, was at his most 
conciliatory, indicating that a 
full-scale battle with the 
Solidarity opposition was no 
longer one of Warsaw’s pri- 
mary concerns. 

“Poland is a different coun- 
try today to what it was five 
years ago. Today the strength 
of the authorities is no longer 
measured by the number of 
weakened opponents but by 
the number of supporters 
won." . . 

The line is one associated 
with the Hungarian leader, 
MrJanos Radar - those who 
are not against us are with us. 

The statement comes at a 
time when much thought, and 
even more talk, is being 
devoted to working out ways 
in which government critics 
can air their views without 
necessarily having to march 
under the Solidarity banner. 

The authorities hope that, if 
new platforms can be found, 
then the “constructive critics 
in the opposition can be 

separated from anti-socialist

of die general air of informal-

Tiger guerrillas step into rulers 9 role 

From Michael Hamlyn 

A strange sense of normality 
has pervaded this northern Sri 
Lankan peninsula. For the 
first time for three years the 
Hindus (the Tamil population 
here is mainly Hindu) have 
been celebrating the festival of 
Murugar* the second son of 
Lord Shiva, brother of the 
elephant-headed Ganesh and, 
if pantheons were govern- 
ments, commander of the 
armed forces of the gods. 

Thirty thousand people 
assembled each night of the 
25-day festival at the biggest 
temple in the town to watch 
the deity, also called Skanda, 
being paraded in a variety of 
chariots around the walls, and 
to see incidents from his 
mythology being performed. 

The festival became a car- 
nival, too, with a fairground of 
stalls selling knick-knacks, 
souvenirs and soft drinks. 

Three years ago the town 
was reeling under the flood of 
refugees arriving hourly from 
the south of the country,

By last year the Army had 
been confined to its camps by 
the rebels and by a “softly,

the peninsula was virtually 
under rebel control. 

There was much ill-feeling, 
I discovered then, against the 
anti-sorial excesses of the 
militants themselves. Rich 
farmers had been killed and 
robbed. A Hindu temple had 
been looted.

“The LTTE is the best 

collector of electricity bills.” a 
senior minister told me. “It 
does not want to give us any 
excuse to cut off the supply.” 

But the groups are now 
beginning to set up their own 
parallel administration. One. 
the Eelam People's Revolu-

selling postage stamps at SO 
cents (Pip) a time and is

on Algarve 

From Martha de la Cal 

The regional authorities on 
Portugal's Algarve coast are 
planning to crack down on 
illegal foreign residents — 
most of them British — who 
are working there without 
permits or legal residence and 
are not paying taxes. 

Senhor Cabrita Neto. civil 
governor of Faro, called a 
meeting on Monday of repre- 
sentatives of municipal gov- 
ernments and the departments 
of finance, labour, tourism, 
foreign residency and the po- 
lice to discuss measures to 
remedy the situation. 

Senhor Ncto said there were 
between 9,000 and 10,000 
legal foreign residents, of 
whom more than half were 
British, hut claimed there 
were three or four limes that 
number there. 

He said they were foreign 
investors, businessmen and 
workers who were there il- 
legally and noi registered. 

These illegal residents “do 
not comply in the least with 
Portuguese laws regarding la- 
bour and social security”, he 

“Investors are welcome and 
so are people who come to set 
up business in the Algarve, but 
they must obey Portuguese 
laws, Portugal is not a banana 

“Our membership of the 
EEC provides for people to 
circulate freely and establish 
themselves, but that does not 
mean the country loses its 
independence and its right to 
make laws.”

L ook closely into the face of 
Jose NapoleOn Duarte and 
the marks of plastic surgery 
are visible on the light skin 
of his cheekbones. Look at 
his hands, the big, capable hands of a 
trained engineer, and you see that he 
is missing the top joints on three 
fingers. The scats he carries serve as 
a grim reminder of the golden rule in 
the politics of El Salvador - never, 
ever ignore the views of the armed 

It is a measure, both of the 60- 
year-old president's determination 
and the army's power, that although 
the civil war peace talks set for the 
little town of Sesori tomorrow 
appear to have been scuppered — 
mainly by the army's refusal to 
guarantee the safety of the rebels — 
he will nonetheless go unescorted to 
Sesori as an act of faith in the peace 
process. The move is typical of the 

Some 14 years ago, Duarte fought 
his first presidential election cam- 
paign against a candidate backed by 
the military. He was robbed of 
victory by the intervention of the 
Salvadorean high command. 
Dragged from refuge in a foreign 
embassy, he was severely tortured 
and bundled into exile. 

It took cold courage to return to 
the maelstrom of Salvadorean poli- 
tics at the end of the 1970s. even if by 
then Duane was becoming rec- 
ognized in Washington as the only 
democrat of any standing available. 
The high-ranking officers who had 
ordered his torture, laughing and 
taunting while his face was smashed 
in with rifle butts, were still very 
much in evidence and the right-wing 
death squads had Duarte in their 

Duarte seemed a tragic figure then, 
a decent man presiding over a junta 
whose troops and police killed and 
tortured with impunity. I met hint 
once after a particularly appalling 
massacre of civilians; he was sitting 
m his garishly-decorated little palace 
beneath a signed photograph from 
Jimmy Cuter in which Duarte's 
name was misspelt 

H e seemed so beaten 
down by the numbing 
brutality all around. 
Here, we thought, was a 
Napoleon on the verge 
of final defeat But Duarte is that 
uniquely resilient creature, the bom 
politician, though there is still a 
certain vagueness, possibly delib- 
erate, about his exact origins. The 
version he prefers casts him as the 
son of a poor country tailor who 
changed his fortunes by moving to 
the capital, where he made sweets. A 
winning ticket on the national 
lottery, it is said, financed a superior 
education for young Jose Napoleon, 
culminating in studies at Notre 
Dame College in the US. 

His friends say, only half joking, 
that Duarte's quest for the presi- 
dency began the day in 1948 when he 
came home with a degree in civil 
engineering and an eye on the main 
chance. His priority was marriage. U>

Close to the edge: Duarte bolds a fragile centre against the violent extremes, and he has the scars to prove it 

of the day, besides a broken body, 
was to be seven years of exile in 
Venezuela. But even then, politics 
were not entirely put aside, liberal 
groups in the US brought Duarte to 
Washington to help rouse American 
opinion against the unsavoury 
dictatorships in El Salvador and 
elsewhere in “Uncle Sam's 

The El Salvador to which Duarte 
and his family eventually returned 
was radically changed. The guerrillas 
had taken to the hills, marking the 
beginning of today’s fully-fledged 
civil war. The triumph of the left- 
wing Sandinistas over the US- 
backed Somoza regime in nearby 
Nicaragua had finally focussed 
Washington’s attention on the re- 
gion. In Josfi Napoleon Duarte, the 
and Reagan administrations 
saw a clean-handed, centrist figure 
who could be the means of selling 
expensive and controversial policies 
to Congress. 

Nobody understood better than 
Duarte the risks, personal and 
political, involved in heading the 
uneasy junta of reformist colonels 
and apprehensive civilians. Disaster 
struck almost immediately, with the 

happened to be well-established in 
the construction business. Duarte 
became a partner, acquiring not only 
a degree of wealth but priceless 
public exposure by handling a 
succession of major contracts. 

The chance to break into politics 
arrived as the growing Salvadorean 
middle-class began searching for a 
voice of its own (until then, the 
country had been run almost as a 
family business by the landed oli- 
garchs and their private armies). In 
the early 1960s, Duarte helped found, 
and became general secretary of, the 
Christian Democrat party. Some 
observers say this is when he first 
exhibited the tell-tale signs of a man 
on the make: a fondness for the 
sound of his own voice, the puffed- 
out chest and lordly manner. 

Duarte’s next step was to become 
mayor of San Salvador, the capital, 
in 1964. It was the first of three 
consecutive terms stretching through 
to the end of the decade. It gave 
"Napo” the national platform he 
needed. Energetic, imaginative, self- 
promoting, he brought the run-down 
capital its first efficient administra- 
tion, providing everything from new 
markets and street lighting to im-

an attempt to tax the brothels out of 
business was a flop).

against his better judgement, to aim

Archbishop Oscar Romero, ven- 
erated bv poor Salvadoreans as the 
voice ofihe oppressed. What was the 
leader of the Christian Democrats 
thinking of sitting at the same table 
with the men whose thugs were 
killing priests, nuns, old women, 
young children? 

Ii was an agonising period for 
Duane. Some of the brightest and 
best of his young followers deserted 
in disgust to pick up a rifle with the 
insurgents. American policy was so 
confosed that Washington some- 
times appeared to be flirting with the 
fascist right, in the frightening 
person of Major Roberto 
D'Aubuisson, believed by the 
Americans to have been directly 
implicated in the murder of Arch- 
bishop Romero. In private Duarte 
aigued that only be stood between an 
unsatisfactory situation and an even 
worse one. a bloody right-left 

It says as much for Duarte's 
resilience as his political astuteness 
that he was able to pursue this 
perilous course between the death 
squads, the abiding suspicion of his 
array commanders and the growing 
strength of the guerrillas to beat 
D'Aubuisson in the 1984 presidential 
elections. Even then, many observ- 
ers argued that his biggest battle was 
still to come — taming the Salvador- 
ean military to the point where he 
could sack, retire or despatch to 
distant posts the 1 most troublesome 
of his uniformed opponents. 

■ et within six months, to 
the .rapturous applause of 
thousands of war-weary 
spectators gathered in the 
little town of La Palma, 
Duarte stood between his Minister of 
Defence and guerrilla commanders 
at the opening of peace talks he had 
unexpectedly proposed before the 
United Nations. Defying the predict- 
able sentence of death for “ high 
treason" from the for right, Duarte 
opted to be protected only by smartly 
turned out boy scouts. 

It was a moment for him to 
savour, the more so, perhaps, be- 
cause of the evident suprise and 
confusion his bold initiative caused 
the Reagan administration (the US 
ambassador in El Salvador was dead 
set against any such talks). It was 
probably inevitable that the hopes 
generated by the historic meeting in 
La Palma were soon dashed: civil 
wars are not easily brought to an end. 
A year later, Duane was negotiating 
with the guerrillas for the freedom of 
his oldest daughter Ines. kidnapped 
with a woman friend and held to 

Journalists monitoring his radio 
contacts with the guerrillas say that 
Duarte's legendary nerve seemed 
close to cracking. The deal that freed 
the two women certainly did nothing 
for his standing among ordinary 
Salvadoreans coping with the war as 
best they could, and the release of 
several rebel commanders naturally 
enraged the armed forces. With 
drastic measures to shore up the 
country's shattered economy further 
alienating support among the work- 
ing dass voters who brought him to 
power. Duane is back on the ropes. 
But nobody who has watched him 
coping almost single-handed with 
the worst that El Salvador can offer 
will doubt his determination.

As Brian Henry, advertise- 
ment manager of the nqw- 
defunct London evening 
newspaper, The Star, left his 
office on September 22. 1955. 
he already knew that agencies 
were considering cancelling 
space. The reason was the 
allure of a lingering 60- 
second shot of a lube of 
Gibbs' SR toothpaste frozen 
in a block of ice. to be 
broadcast at 8.12 that eve- 
ning — the first advertisement 
on the first night of Britain’s 
first commercial television

says, people were whistling

years later, Henry was Red-

Taking the cocaine war to work 

The world of industrial chemi- 
cals has become the latest — 
and, on the face of it, one of the 
most unlikely — battlefields in 
the American campaign 
against drug traffi cking . 

But strategies such as Op- 
eration Chemooa may prove as 
vital in combating the drag 
trade as all the armies of 
police and federal agents who 
regularly win the attention of 
the television cameras. 

Operation Chemcon is the 
latest in a series of American 
plans designed to strike not at 
the drag former, the dealer or 
the user but at the refiner and 
manufacturer. The aim is to 
monitor the supply of the 
chemicals - in this case, ether 
— used to produce dregs — In 
this instance, cocaine. The 
Americans are understood to 
have tried a variation on this 
theme in the 1960s, when they 
attempted to identify the her- 
oin laboratories in Marseilles 
operated by the French 
Connection gangs. The plan 
was to trace acetic add 
concentrations — the chemical 

is used in the refinement of 
heroin — through the city's 
sewers in the hope that this 
would lead them to the 

Unfortunately the Ameri- 
cans foiled to take into account 
another use of the add — 
cooldng, where it is known as 
vinegar. Many of the trails led 
them to restamants. 

Bid a similar programme' 
was successful a few years 
later in halting the production 
of LSD by HHdeigroaiid lab- 
oratories. The programme was 
widened to include the inter- 
national chemical market, and 
the evidence gathered was 
later used to convict several 
major American LSD 

The Drag Enforcement 
Agency in Washington be- 
lieves that Chemcon is already 
making headway against co- 
caine, which has become the 
major area of growth in the 

□licit drags market, Earlier 
this year a senior DEA offidal 
described to a Senate hearing 
bow Chemcon has been used to 

monitor the sale of ether in the 
WesLAU sales of more than 
five gallons of ether are re- 
ported to the DEA by distrib- 
utors or police forces in the 
United Stales and abroad. 
Panama, Brasil and Colombia 
have been key countries in the 

The official reported that 
13,000 hands of ether, each 
holding 55 gallnmy, had been 
seized in the first few months 
of the programme. The result 

was that cocaine refiners in 
South America were offering 
$7,000 (£4,600) for barrels of 
ether usually costing $180, 
and the cost of cocame was 
said to be rising. 

The DEA was thinking of 
enlarg in g the programme, in 
order to fight not only cocaine, 
but heroin and synthetic drugs 
as well. 

Stewart Tendler 

Britain’s instant television family: Katy and the Oxo brood 

Authority took off Gilbert 
Harding's endorsement of in- 
digestion tablets and the gov- 
ernment banned cigarette 
commercials. Now, former 
Saatchi chairman Tim Bell 
points out in the book that his 
favourite campaign. “Hein- 
eken refreshes the parts” 
could not be launched be- 
cause the IBA does not allow 
the implication that alcohol 
has beneficial properties. 
Similar reasoning would pre- 
clude the “Happiness is a 
cigar called Hamlet” series, 
“the closest thing to promot- 
ing a dreg there has ever 
been . . . The only reason it is 
still allowed to run is that it 
was done 15 years ago". 

Henry records how Adver- 
tising Association members, 
meeting to draw up their own 
voluntary code in 1961, sniff- 
fly spurned his suggestion of a 
pre-publication check on 
press advertising to match 
the ITA’s copy scrutiny of 
commercials before broad- 
cast. But slowly print 
advertising, under the 
Advertising Standards Auth- 
ority. has approached tele- 
vision's fussy standards of 
truthfulness. He admits, how- 
ever, that with satellites 
beaming commercials over 
whole continents, deregula- 
tion is inevitable. 

In matters of taste, tele- 
vision advertising has fol- 
lowed real life at a discreet 
distance. In 1957 the first 
chairman of the ITA’s 
advertising committee, with 
a naively southern view of 
national eating habits, for- 
bade lavatory paper advertis- 
ing until 9.30pm. when 
people would have finished 
their dinners. Like the Wind- 

times creative director of 
major advertising agencies. 

describes in the book how the 
’pressure to turn postern into 
stories that could be told in 
30 seconds led also to a new 
“grammar" of film-making: 
quick cuts, dissolves, the 
disposal of the establishing 
shot "When today as a 
viewer we say that old films 
are slow, the reason is that we 
have learnt to do the work. 
We have learnt the grammar 
unconsciously”, he writes. 

The process has not gone 
unnoticed by advocates of the 
traditional virtues of of prose. 
Earlier this year on Channel 
4's Voices. Saul Bellow be- 
moaned a survey which 
claimed that children, chan- 
nel-switcher in hand, no 
longer watched programmes 
alt the way through. "They 
were interested only in frag- 
ments of programmes. And 
their chief interest was special 

In his McTaggart Lecture 
last month, Troy Kennedy 
Martin, writer of Edge of 
Darkness, noted how the 
copywriter condenses action 
where the playwright foils 
back on dialogue, "the slow- 
est way to develop a story”. 
He asked the bemused writ- 
ers and directors in his audi- 
ence at Edinburgh to embrace 
the techniques in order to 
make "micro dramas” which 
would "employ similar styles 
to commercials, in which 
time is fractured and natural- 
ism goes out of the window”.

E veryone remembers the fart 
that Queen Elizabeth pre- 
tended to forget, but perhaps 
, . instructive is the spec- 

tacle of her m old age as she “stamps 
her feet at ill news, and thrusts her 
rusty sword at times into the arras in 
grea? rage”. Both anecdotes are 
reprinted in this new anthology or 
bestiary, of political life; here also is 
James I, “his fingers ever fidling 
about his cod-piece”; and Gladstone 
with his Cabinet: “Excited men round 
table -pale old croupier in midst 
with passion seething in his face 
Each small scene is worthy of the 
more colourful moments of Dante’s 
■ Inferno , and the emblematic signifi- 
cance of each one confirms Paul • 
Johnson’s claim, in his introduction, 
that “anecdotes are a valuable source 
of historical truth”. That is why 
political cartoonists can get to the 
bean of a matter which hours of 
wading through Hansard will not 
reveal And that is why, also, good 
historical novelists are just as lively to 
be right as academic historians. 

People need stories in order to 
understand the world. Of course, 
most contemporary political journal- 
ism seems already to be couched in 
the form of bad fiction, and the 
“Daylight” or “Insight" features in’ 
the Sunday newspapers can hardly be 
said to add to the store of general 
knowledge or even general entertain- 
ment, but the anecdotes preserved in 
this collection possess an additional 
homilectic quality. They are not so 
much stories as parables and, like 
parables, they offer the comforting 
suggestion that the world can be 
understood in entirely human terms. 
No one is going to pore over the 
collected axioms of Malthus, Ricar- 
do, or Marx except to understand the 
concept of historical relativity; but 
die recorded lives of other human 
beings exercise a fascination equiva- 
lent only to their significance. 

And how could it be otherwise? 
There is a theory, greatly favoured by 
left-wing politicans, that 
“personalities” are an irrelevance in 
political affairs — that they are an 
intrusion largely manufactured by the 
“media” for their own purposes. But 
one only has to read in this anthology 
of Lord Salisbury's attempts to 
construct a working telephone, or of 
Asquith’s drunkenness, to realize the 
absurdity of those who believe that 
politics is' a matter solely oflaws or 
principles that no mere “personality” 
can alter. There is a purblind puritan- 
ism that shrinks from the contamina- 
tion of human contact in order safely 
to promulgate some theory of human 
behaviour. And anyone who dismiss- 
es human muddle and human tern-

perament as inessential aspects of the 
political process is quite likely to be 
among the first to pm those same 
human beings in front of a firing 

But perhaps such radicals are really 
only trying to defend their own 
radicalism, since to suggest the pre- 
eminence of human motive and 
human temperament in affairs of 
state is implicitly to take up a 
conservative position. The vitupera- 
tive quarrel between Fox and Burke, 
' so memorably recounted in this book, 
could find its parallel in any century; 
the mental decay of Ramsay Mac- 
Donald, equally memorably de- 
scribed, might be visited on any 
politican (and probably has been). In 
any case, an anthology which begins 
with Richard 111 and ends with James 
Callaghan can hardly be said to be a 
testament to human progress. There 
is none; there is only change. That is 
why Paid Johnson is right to empha- 
size the tone of voice, the mann er, the 
sheer presence of politicans as vital 
elements in their political role: the 
point of this bode is to confirm that 
such apparently “small” things can 
change the course of a war or the fate 
of a nation. 

H ere, for example, is Lloyd 
George on Winston Chur- 
chill: “He would make a 
drum out of the skin of his 
mother in order to sound his own. 
praises." And on Sir John Simom“He 
has sat on the fence so long the iron 
has entered his souL" And here is 
Disraeli's unanswerable comment 
that, courage is the rarest of all 
qualities to be found in public men." 

Of course there are certain changes 
to be discerned in the course of a 
survey that covers almost five hun- 
dred years of political activity — not 
the least significant of which is the 
change in the lan g ua g e itself. In the 
first pages of this book conversation 
and analysis seem rich, embroidered, 
vigorous; but by the time we reach the 
etiolated phrases issuing from the lips 
of Harold Wilson’s ministers In 1969 

the language has become strained and 
restrained. Great scenes from the 
House of Commons or from White- 
hall are supplanted, in the last 
of the anthology, either by 
episodes in newspaper offices, or by 
equally dreary stories from the volu- 
minous memoirs of Richard 
Crossman. Instead of the prose of 
Clarendon or Overbury we have the 
diaries or autobiographies of retired 
politicians, who rarely, if ever, man- 
age to treat tiie language with 
nything other than the contempt 
born of ignorance. If there has been 
any debasement in English politics, it 
is the debasement of English itself. 

As a result some of these entries are 
wealc it is a mistake to trust anything 
written by George Augustus Sala, for 
example; and the anecdotes about 
Winston Churchill are not as amusing 
as Paul Johnson imagines. But on the 
whole this is a collection as fasdnat 
ing as it is instructive; it may 
indirectly chart the declining quality 
both of our politicians and our 
political theorists, but it also provides 
a commentary upon some of the 
more interesting and permanent hu- 
man emotions. 

The sky’s the limit 

In 1941 a fighter pilot flying 
home at dawn sees the sun rise 
over the Channel. He loses 
height rapidly, and the hori- 
zon blocks the sun out again — 
so be sees it rise for a second 
lime; “an ordinary' miracle 
that be would never forget". 
Seeing the sun rise twice is the 
central image of this story, its 
heroine is Jean, an ignorant 
country girl in whose home 
the pilot is billeted after being 
grounded for alleged 

Julian Barnes evidently 
likes women. (Not many men 
da) Jean seems stupid be- 
cause she is silenced by the 
way men go ore Uncle Leslie’s 
incomprehensible facetious- 
ness, her father’s know-all 
mealtime monologues. She is 
intrigued by the pilot, who 
confides in her his terror of 
flying; but marries a compla- 
cent policeman and tries to 
understand the world as inter- 
preted by men, where women 
dean ana cook and defer and 
ask the wrong questions. 

Jean overcomes her fear of 
flying. After 20 years of mar- 
riage she walks oul Up to here

about her battles with a recal- 
citrant Dutch cap. (Julias 
Barnes not only likes women, 
he knows them.) Now the 
narrative takes off with Jean 
into the upper air, and asks: 
what is life? Although Jean has 
“discarded stupidity", she is 
insufficiently articulate for the 
game this author wants to 
play, so some of the excess 
baggage of speculation is car- 
ried by her melancholy son 
Gregory. What is a good life? 
What is a good death? What is 
courage? Is it braver to fight, 
or to run away like the pilot? Is 
it braver to endure, or to 
escape like Jean? Or to com- 
mit suicide? Is ir braver to 
believe in God. or not to 
believe in God? 

It is by now 1998, and 
Gregory has access to the 
stale-run computer which 
contains “the whole of human 

knowledge". Computers, like 

ancient philosophers, work on 
a question-and-answer basis, 
“what is a real question? One 
to which someone can give an 
answer... The problem is not 
what is the answer but what is 
the question." This must be 
the first literary novel in 
which a computer — and this 
one is very lively — is a lead- 
ing character. 

Staring at the Sun ends with 
aged mother and elderly son 
up in an aeroplane. They have 
seen the sun go down, and the 
plane is rising steeply. We 
know what will happen; and 
the after-life may be another 
“ordinary miracle", like see- 
ing the sun set twice. One 
question they have not asked 
is “Whither the novel?" As in 
Flaubert's Parrot. Julian 
Barnes is using humorous 
fictional narrative (which he is 
very good at) just as a runway 
to something else. The lift-off 
here, is a little jerky, but books 
like his suggest the way that 
novels can be used; and, as 
Uncle Leslie said to Jean when 
she was a little girl. “The sky’s 
the limit”

Weidenfeld & Nicholson, 

Julian Gloag has established 
himself as a writer of intricate 
and sophisticated thrillers; 
Only Yesterday marks a new 
departure. As readable as 
Gloag’s earlier work, there is 
virtually no plot in this gentle 
novel, which covers three days 
spent together by three genera- 
tions of a family. 

The reunion is a chance 
one. Rupert Darley, finding in 
middle age the courage to 
leave a dead-end marriage and 
a dead-end job, returns to his 
childhood home to break the 
news to his parents. An only 
child, he has never quite lived

expectations of his architect 
father, Oliver, or the gentler 
hopes of his mother. May. 
Both are ailing as well as old, 
and have summoned, this 
very week-end, Rupert’s 
daughter Miranda in order to 
entrust her, in their different 
ways, with their future. Occa- 
sional strangers stray into the 
family circle, but they are 
intruders who barely disturb 
the surface of a deep pool of 
affection that envelopes the 
four main characters. There is 
not a trace of sentimentality 
here, but plenty of sentiment, 
expressed in that desultory 
Shorthand conversation that 
only families employ. 

The three days are carefully 
charted. The first brings to 
Rupert and his parents the 
famili ar reassurance that ev- 
erything is still the same, with 
the concomitant despair that 
nothing has changed. Good 
intentions lead to frustration 
and misunderstanding; only 
the casualties* of youth, as 
Miranda fails to arrive when 
expected, briefly unites the 
older generations. When she 
does appear, she brings with 
her the freshness and stamina 
to take on the confidences and 
responsibilities urged upon 
her, maturing in the process . 
until the distances of age and 
custom blur. By the third day 
new understanding and re- 
spect have drawn the four 
together, to face with equa- 
nimity the uncertain future. 

This is a novel of rare 

quality. Rupert, Miranda. Oli- 
ver, and May are extraordi- 
narily real, and I was loath to 
leave their company. The 
whole book has been whittled 
down to exactly the right 
proportions of humour and 
sadness, of the commonplace 
and the eccentric. A delight to 
read, to be cherished. 

In comparison The Chris- 
tening by Susanna Mitchell 
seems heavy and overblown. 
The infant to be christened is 
the offspring of a social and 
temperamental misalliance 
between Victor, a sober coun- 
try gentleman in middle life, 
and Miriam, a lightweight 
actress half his age. Their 
choice of godparents reveals a 
nostalgia for the past that each 
has turned away from: Justin, 
ibe dynamic but penniless 
dancer, and plain, neurotic 
Dorothy who has worshipped 
Victor since their shared 
childhood. Miriam, who ap- 
pears so confidently in com- 
mand of the situation, finds

trived by this opposing pair. 

Susanna Mitchell writes 
shrewdly and imaginatively. 
She has a neat plot, a deft 
touch with dialogue, and sev- 
eral moving and memorable 
passages where she handles 
the symbolism delicately. But 
the fine perceptions of her 
characters are directed so 
strongly upon themselves that 
they become blind to each 
other’s feelings, and to the 
realities of their lives. What is 
no doubt intended as simplic- 
ity comes over as stupidity, 
leaving a nasty sense that 
everyone ends up with just, 
deserts. The book asa whole is ’ 
an uneasy mixture of Gothic 
passion and contemporary

Mr Sylvester, who “divides

have a moratorium on this 
tiresome blurb- writer’s cli- 
che?) between Oxford and a 
farmhouse in Bordeaux is a 
former architect who gave up 
his profession in order to 
“take up writing full time.” A 
pity this is not more widely 
practised, especially in re- 
verse. If more fuD time writers 
gave up in order to become 
architects, it would be of great 
benefit to both professions. - 
Anyway this is Mr Sylvester’s 
first effort, although we are 
told that he is well into a 
second using the same hero, 
someone called Warner. 

I would have second 
thoughts about this if I were 
him, because Warner is pretty 
insufferable and, as the boss of 
a company called William 
Warner Wmes, not a man to 
whom enthralling things are 
going to happen every day of 
the week, without the author 
having to use an unnecessary 
amount of artistic licence. Mr 
Warner says of his company's 
title, “Very mellifluous I 
opine”, which gives you a fair 
idea of the sort of person he is.

Hands off these schools 

Ronald Butt 


Owen does 
it again 

David Owen is up to his old media 
tricks again. During Iasi year's 
- SDP con ference I reported how he 
had successfully bludgeoned the 
.producer of Radio Four’s The 
World at One into making him the 
lead item by threatening to walk 
out . of the studio. . News now 
:reaches me that he tried a similar 
trick during last Sunday's The 
World .This Weekend. Insisting 
again that- he top the bill. Owen 
managed to keep his producer 
arguing for so long that she was 
; left with little time to prepare her 
intended lead. However, speedy 
Beeb boffins, doubtless seeking 
revenge for Iasi year's defeat, 
worked miracles on a late tape 
from Moscow on the Daniloff 
affair. Much to his dismay, Owen 
wasduly relegated to second place. 

Kenneth, Baker, the Education 
Secretary, is expected to announce 
new initiaitives when he winds up 
the education debate at the 
Conservative conference in 
Bournemouth next month. Indeed 
we have already seen the trailers in 
die press. 

A near certainty is 20 or so new 
technical schools, especially in the 
inner cities: another likely pro- 
posal is for a new form of direct 
grant: and a third might well be 
some new and better primary 
schools. All will be funded by 
Whitehall and not - like the rest 
of the state system — by local 

First, a word of warning It is 
one thing for the Department of 
Education and Science to pay 
directly on a per capita basis for 
the education of pupils at- such 
schools. It is quite another for it to 
exercise detailed control over 

There is no intrinsic reason why 
state funded schools have to be 
state run schools. Just because the 
taxpayer and ratepayer find the 
money, it does not follow that 
government local or central is 
best fitted to own and manag; the 

by Stuart Sexton 

schools or to get value for money. 
By all means make a direct grant 
to a charitible trust or a group of 
parents to establish and. run a new 
technical school, or a new primary 
school, or any other type of school 
of quality in Liverpool or any- 
where else that they are badly 
needed, but to try to run them 
from Whitehall would kill the very 
idea of direct grant funding. 

The technical schools now 
envisaged would become centres 
of excellence in technology; since 
they would inevitably be over- 
subscribed. children would be 
selected not on mere zoning, as 
with the comprchensives, but on 
aptitude and motivation to benefit 
from the specialist education of- 
fered. Most, if not all would be 
established in areas of high need 
such as the inner cities of Liver- 
pool Manchester and Birming- 
ham. In theory, tbe local 
authorities in those cities could 
establish such schools, but as they 
have not already done so. central 
government has to do it for them. 

A second and separate proposal 

is for new schools of high quality, 
both primary and secondary, to be 
established throughout tbe coun- 
try. but again particularly in areas 
of greatest need, by the mecha- 
nism of re-establishing direct 
grant funding. This would be done 
on a per pupil per year basis. If we 
suppose the direct grant were to be 
£1,500 per pupil per year then a 
school of 1.000 pupils would 
receive £1.5 million for that year. 

The direct grant (or grant aided, 
or government maintained) 
school must be independently 
owned and run, free from all local 
and central bureaucracy and poli- 
tics. It must be managed in every 
sense like a fully independent 
school but instead of charging 
fees,- it would be part of the state 
provision of education. 

The great advantage is that the 
independent management within 
a clearly defined budget can 
produce schools of very high 
quality. They would not be man- 
aged by Labour or Conservatives 
and would not be plagued with 
bureaucracy, local or central Be- 

cause they would depend on the 
number of children for funding, 
they would have every incentive 
to Strive for excellence. Direct 
grant spells better education at, or 
even below, the cost of tbe local 
authority schools. 

The third proposal is that we 
need more and better primary 
schools, especially in the inner 
cities. In all three proposals “new" 
schools need not be in new 
buildings; there are plen ty of good 
redundant school buildings to be 
brought back into use. 

Many these three proposals 
together and Baker can announce 
that he will use existing powers to 
fund independently owned and 
managed schools by direct grant, 
and that in doing so be is going to 
give priority to funding newly 
established schools of high qual- 
ity, especially in the most de- 
prived areas. In them all the three 
Rs wiH be properly taught. 

If he does that the cheers will 
come not only from the Tory 
faithful but from parents all over 
the country.

and Varadjian Garbidjian, Syrian- 
born head of the Armenian com- 
mando which attacked Oily 
airport in July 1983. killing seven 
and injuring 55. 

But why should any one group 
be willing to go to such lengths to 
secure the release of such a strange 
grab-bag of people with such 
disparate aims and ideologies? 
Who is behind the CSPPA? In- 
vestigators are increasingly con- 
vinced that the group is simply a 
front for the FARL and that it is 
the release of only one person 
which they really want — Abdallah 
- with the other two thrown in 
partly to confuse, partly as poten- 
tial bargaining counters, and 
partly as a gesture ‘to the pro- 
Iranian, Lebanese-based Islamic 
Jihad, to which Naccache appears 
to be connected, and the Syrian- 
backed Secret Arinenian Army for 
the Liberation of Armenia 
(ASALA). of which Garbidjian is a 
leading member. 

The FARL was founded in 1980 
by Abdallah, a pro-Palestinian, 
Marxist. Maronite Christian from 
a liny Christian enclave in the 
north of Lebanon. Tbe groups 
consisting largely of members of 
Abdallah's own extended family, 
totals, according to some, no more 
than a couple of dozen members; 
according to others, a couple of 
hundred. Its aims appear vague, 
but as is clear from the targets 
chosen for its attacks in France 
and elsewhere in Europe, it is 
motivated by a hatred of Israel 
and American “imperialism". It 
has known links with other ex- 
treme-left terrorist groups, notably 
the Italian Red Brigades, with 
whom Abdallah trained in 1979. 
the French Action Direcie. and the 
German Red Army Faction. 

In October 1984, Abdallah was 
arrested after walking into a police 
station in Lyons, posing as an 
Algerian, to ask for police protec- 
tion because he feared he was 
being pursued by the Mossad. the 
Israeli secret service, who alleg- 
edly wanted to kill him. The 
French police soon discovered 
Abdallah's connection with the 
FARL and he was arrested and 
charged with possession of forged 
papers and membership of an 
"association of criminals" — noth- 
ing particularly dramatic. 

Five months later, on March 23. 
1985. Gilles Peyrolles. director of 
the French cultural institute in the

Lebanese city of Tripoli was 
kidnapped by Marxist Maronites, 
later identified as FARL mem- 
bers, including two of Abdallah’s 
own brothers, who immediately 
started negotiations with the 
French Socialist government of 
the day for Peyrolles’ release in 
return for that of Abdallah. 

The deal was clinched and a few 
days later Peyrolles was set free. 
But the French reneged, having 
meanwhile discovered a cache of 
arms in Abdallah's former Paris 
flat Among them were guns 
believed to have been used in the 
assassination in Paris in 1982 of 
Charles Ray, military attach* at 
the US embassy, and of Yacov 
Barsimantev. an Israeli diplomat. 
Until then, the French had not 
appreciated how big a fish they 
had caught. 

Abdallah's arrest, together with 
the arrest in Italy a couple of 
months earlier of two other lead- 
ing FARL members, seemed to 
put a stop to the group's terrorist 
activities until the appearance 
early this year of the previously 
unknown CSPPA. It is now 
thought to be simply the FARL 
under a new guise, but possibly 
including elements of a tactical 
alliance with the Islamic Jihad, the 
group holding at least three 
French hostages in Lebanon and 
pan of the larger Hezbollah, the 
Shia Muslim fundamental ist party 
which wants to get the French UN 
peace-keeping force out of south- 
ern Lebanon. So an already com- 
plicated picture becomes even 
more complex. 

When Jacques Chirac, leader of 
the right-wing Gaullist party, 
came to power in March this year, 
his first act as prime minister was 
to visit the shopping arcade on the 
Champs Elysees where, a few 
hours after his inauguration, a 
bomb had gone off killing two and 
injuring 28. The attack was sub- 
sequently claimed by the CSPPA. 

Then followed a lull, during 
which Abdallah was brought to 
trial and sentenoed to a mere four 
years imprisonment His two. less 

important FARL colleagues in 
Italy had been sentenced to 15 and 
16 years. Why bad Abdallah got 
off so lightly? Having been in 
prison since October 1984, It 
would mean that he would be- 
come eligible for conditional re- 
lease on October 24, 1986, having 
served half- his sentence. The 
Americans were furious and im- 
mediately brought a civil action 
against Abdallah for complicity in 
the murder of Charles Ray. 

It now seems certain that some 
kind of deal was being envisaged 
by the Chirac government involv- 
ing the release of Abdallah. Per- 
haps it was a suspected change of 
heart on the part of the French or 
perhaps the FARL fell the negotia- 
tions were taking too long. In any 
event the bombings started again 
at the beginning of this month 
with even greater ferocity than 
before — two dead and more than 
100 injured within eight days. All 
the attacks were claimed by the 
CSPPA. They say the Elysee 
Palace is next on their list 

However tempted the govern- 
ment may have been in the past to 
secure a halt to the bombings by 
releasing Abdallah, that is now out 
of the question. It would be an 
unfoigiveable display of weakness 
by a party which came to power on 
a tough law-and-order ticket The 
public, for the moment are 
equally determined that there 
must be no deal. 

Furthermore. Abdallah's release 
is no longer wholly in the hands of 
the government The murder 
charges are still pending and there 
is now also an extradition request 
from Italy, which wants Abdallah 
in connection with the ass- 
assins ion in Rome in February 
1984 of Leamonl Hunt the 
American general commanding 
the international observer force in 
Sinaj. So why are the terrorists 
continuing with what they must 
realize are now counter-produc- 
tive attacks? Is there, after all, a 
greater link than has been sus- 
pected or admitted with France's 
policy in the Middle East perhaps 

concerning its peace-keeping force 
in southern Lebanon, which has 
come under attack in the last few 

On the face of it an alliance 
between Marxist Christian Maro- 
nites and right-wing Muslim fun- 
damentalist members of the 
Hezbollah seems improbable. On 
the other hand, both have an 
interest in seeing the French forces 
removed from southern Lebanon, 
where they are increasingly seen as 
supporting the Israeli occupiers 
rather than monitoring the 
Israelis’ departure, which was 
their original brief. 

The CSPPA has made no spe- 
cific demands for France to pull 
out of Lebanon. On the other 
hand, last week it accused France 
of aligning its policies with those 
of the “American imperialist 
aggressors", adding that there 
would be “no peace on earth, nor 
rest for the peoples of the world, 
nor security for the US and 
Europe, so long as our people are 
not able to enjoy peace, tranquil- 
lity and security." 

It has been suggested that 
France has only itself to blame for 
its plight because of hs long and 
dose involvement in Lebanon 
and the Middle East generally. 
That is not strictly true. The three 
terrorists in question have all been 
convicted for attacks which had 
nothing directly to do with France 
or French policy in the Middle 
East. France just happened to 
provide a convenient territory for 
international terrorists to settle 
their scores with other foreigners. 

If. on the other hand, the 
CSPPA/FARL does indeed have 
links with the Islamic Jihad/ 
Hezbollah, then we may not see an 
end to the bombings until France 
withdraws its remaining troops 
from Lebanon, and some in the 
government would like to see that j 
to happen soon. But until the ; 
French police actually capture one 
of the'tenxnists and extract from 
him the information they require, 
all hypotheses remain open. 

Austria’s new brownshirt nationalist 


The emergence of Jorg Haider as 
leader of the Austrian Freedom 
Party at the weekend has not only 
ended the three-year-old Socialist- 
Freedom Party coalition; it is a 
turning point in Austrian politics 
in a broader sense. 

For the first time since Bruno 
Kreisky's resignation as chan- 
cellor in 1983. a gifted orator with 
subtle rhetoric is firmly installed 
on the political stage. After the 
scandals of the last three years, in 
which a variety of Austrian poli- 
ticians vied with one another for 
the leading part in what seemed a 
non-stop opera buffa. Haider cuts 
a figure of vaulting ambition 
linked with considerable political 
acumen. Were he a member of any 
other group but the Freedom 
Party, this would be a most 
welcome development, but his 
support comes from nationalist 
elements which, as the Waldheim 
affair all too vividly illustrated, 
still exist in Austria. 

The Freedom Party was 
founded by liberals after the 

Second World War but is now 
more right-wing than its name 
might suggest. It has had a 
controversial history. From the 
beginning it attracted many for- 
mer Nazi sympathizers who. in 
the immediate postwar years, were 
debarred from membership of 
either the Socialist or the conser- 
vative People's parties. Its former 
chief whip. Friedrich Peter, was at 
the centre of a controversy a few 
years ago when it emerged that he 
had been an SS officer during the 
war engaged in civilian repnsals 
behind the Russian lines. He 
remains an active member of the 
party and his wartime career is by 
no means unique among its older 

Haider, who is only in his late 
thirties, is too young to have had 
any direct association with the 
WehrmachL But like many of his 
contemporaries in the partv, he 
has not been slow to manifest 
sympathy for the extreme right- 
wing views of its nationalists.- The 
former defence minister. Fried- 
helm Frischensch lager, like 

Haider a rising star in the party, 
saw nothing untoward when, two 
years ago. he personally welcomed 
a convicted Nazi war criminal on 
his repatriation to Austria. 

Haider, significantly, was the 
most outspoken defender of the 
minister's anion, referring to the 
war criminal Walther Reder. who 
had been responsible for ordering 
the massacre at Marzabotto in 
Italy, as “an Austrian soldier who 
had done his duty". In Carinthia. 
the most right-wing and national- 
ist part of Austria, this kind of 
response went down well and. 
helped by the brown Corinthian 
provincial costume which he 
invariably wears, resulted in a 
landslide victory for Haider in 
(oca! elections last year. 

Such opportunism also knew 
how to exploit the German- 
speaking Carinihians' paranoia of 
the Slovene minority in the prov- 
ince. When ihe neo-Nazi Carin- 
ihian Fatherland From proposed 
the segregation of Slovene and 
German speaking children it was

since 1974, and 'very many ot 
them are inclined to vote for the 
Alliance as a new force tn politics. 
But they will be reluctant to do so 
if there seems to be a serious nsk 
that the result will be to let in the 
party, whether Tory or Labour, 
which they dislike most. 

What would be most likely to 
persuade them to take the nsk 
would be if the Alliance offered a 
genuinely new and persuasive 
political idea for a changing 
society. That is essential for any 
new party to get off the ground and 
it is what socialism represented 
when Labour replaced the Liberals 
earlier in the century. 

But the more one examines 
what has been on display at 
Harrogate this week, the plainer it 
seems that there is no such new 
idea, unless one accepts as such 
Roy Jenkins' muddled thinking 
about the Alliance's future as an 
"ami-party party". 

On Monday, he told the SDP 
not to think that it was a “tight 
right liule party uniquely anointed 
and armed with God’s truth." 
Since he is a dedicated believer in 
a merger with the Liberals, his 
remarks were taken as a coded 
rebuke to David Owen. Asked by 
Robin Day whether a rebuke was 
intended, Jenkins - wbo could, 
have simply said “no" — replied 
that if he had wanted to rebuke 
Owen be would have done it 
direct. He then inveighed against 
the old politicians' habit of look- 
ing at their own party as standing 
in full sunlight and their oppo- 
nents as wholly benighted (which 
is standard Alliance rhetoric used 
by Owen too) and went on to 
reduce the idea to absurdity. 

The business of (he Alliance (as 
an “anti-party party") was, he 
said, to “break the mould", not to 
replace a rigid two-party system 
with a rigid three-party system. 
Yet he insisted that the Alliance 
must be permanent and if this 
isn't creating a rigid three-party 
structure (Owen at least contem- 
plates four parties) what is it? 
Jenkins then described his essen- 
tial aim as being to “upset Dicey" 
and the constitutional idea of the 
sovereignty of the Crown in 
Parliament as determined by 
votes in Parliament 

Instead, he wants a system of 
judicial review and obedience to 
the Strasbourg code of human 
rights. But subordinating Par- 
liament to the say-so of judges 
acting in the generalities of a code 
is an odd notion of representative 
democracy and hardly looks like 
riveting the electorate. 

popular and therefore 
Even Neil Kinnock is offering 
something new. a version of 
socialism which he hopes would 
be irreversible. .. . 

Two crucial Alliance policies 
illustrate the point First it seeks® 
formal incomes policy by offering 
tax incentives to profit sharing 
and pay linked to productivity, 
and marries it with a counter- 
inflation tax to take away any 
wage increases beyond a general 
norm, an idea examined by the 
Treasury under Edward Heath 
and rejected as unworkable. Even 
if it worked in the private sector, 
how could the government levy it 
on itself as the public sector 
employer when ft was faced with 
the inflation generated by the 
increased state spending also ad- 
vocated by the Alliance? 

likewise, the allegedly radical 
plan for integrating tax and social 
benefits in a single structure is 
nothing new. Lord Cockfield pro- 
duced a finished tax-credit scheme 
under Edward Heath and it is 
certainly the right approach. But 
the problem is cost. What is wrong 
with the SDP approach is that it 
would apply the scheme to the 
existing social service commit- 
ments without re-examining their 
individual merits. So extra tax 
would have to be levied on people 
with incomes somewhere between 
£10,000 and £17,000 according to 
differing SDP versions. 

All right, says Owen, defending 
the originally embarrassing com- 
mitment which he eventually 
decided to make the centrepiece of 
his conference address, but people 
are altruistic, and anyway it would 
be dishonest to pretend that the 
extra social spending could be had 
by soaking the rich. Honest it may 
be, but the scheme is no more 
radical than new. A radical 
scheme would start by identifying 
the essential but often under- 
financed services (hospitals, educ- 
ation. the handicapped and so on). 
It would then weed out the 
schemes and subsidies on which 
money is wasted by local authori- 
ties and ministries. 

If this were done, the integrated 
tax and benefits system would not 
involve the need to raise still more 
tax from people with relatively 
modest earnings. But disturbing 
the vested interests of bureau- 
cratic waste is too radical an 
approach for the SDP. 

Owen should have a word with 
Roy Jenkins who, when he was 
Labour chancellor, once explained 
to me emphatically that there is a 
point at which it is impracticable 


The truth is that the SDP (or the • to tax people more heavily, and 
Alliance) is an ordinary party tike that this point had been readied at 

any other, and it needs a new idea 
more substantial than its appeal 
against the extremism of the other 
parties. Such a new idea is lacking. 
Far from breaking the mould, its 
policies are the mould; the old 
mould of the late Sixties which 
was first destroyed by Labour 

that time. I would have thought 
that it has also been reached now. 
The feet that the SDP doesn't see 
this is instructive. The Alliance 
stall needs a big idea, for the 
scheme that Dr Owen has em- 
braced with characteristic impul- 
siveness is not iL

Junk mail, but 
what a cake 

When the International Herald 
Tribune posts me a copy of its 
excellent paper, it addresses me as 
Kington Miles. So when I get other 
pieces of mail from around the 
globe with my name reversed in 
the same way, I assume it is 
because the Herald Trib has lent 
its mailing list to someone else. I 
don't mind, because it gives me a 
chance to see what kind of 
international organizations think 
that an international reader like 
me is worth offering business to. 
Credit cards, financial magazines, 
airlines, big banks — these are the 
firms that I get mail-shots from, 
and 1 read them all carefully 
before throwing them away. The 
last one. from a travel dub, 
addressed me as “Dear Frequent 
Traveller", and 1 must say I felt a 
glow of pride as I threw it away. 

What all these companies have 
in common is that they are large, 
international and impersonal. Is 
this not the way that all companies 
go after a while? So I was staggered 
last week to receive a letter 
addressed to Kington Miles, 
addressing me as “Dear Holiday 
Gift Buyer”, which came from 
what appeared to be a small 
personal company. The letter 
continued: “This Christmas, - 
really surprise and delight those

ally famous DELUXE fruitcake

For those of os who had not 
previously heard of the inter- 
nationally famous DELUXE fruit- 
cake. the writer of the letter 
(LW. McNutt Jr) explained that 
“from around the globe come 
prime harvest fruits and cherries 
which we blend with pure honey 
nectar into a rich batter, crunchy 
with crisp Texan pecan nut 
meats" The cake, made by the 
Collins Street Bakery, was shipped 
to 194 countries last year. and the

Q. People call your bakery and

A. We turned ninety January of 
this year. 

Q. How should a legend taste? 

A. Legendary fruitcake should 
taste better than any other fruit- 
cake you've bought, baked or 
eaten, or you deserve a refund. 

Now. the Collins Street Bakery 
has obviously expanded over the 
years, as you might guess from the , 

fact that its address is no longer 
Collins Street but 401, W. Seventh 
Avenue. Corsicana; indeed, any 
firm that sends its cake to 194 
countries is not just a backstreet 
bakery, but has claims to be as 
international as IBM. What strikes 
me as peculiarly wonderful about 
this firm, apart from the strangely 
volcanic red colour of the photos 
of its fruitcake, is the feet that it 
has managed to survive nearly 100 
years selling just one thing. It 
breaks all known laws of com-

Conference in which diffi- 
culties have been overcome 
and unity has been preserved. 
The speech was a mini-master- 
piece of tactics, if not of 
strategy, and it allows the SDP 
to continue happily honing up 
its policy discussions, leaving 
Dr Owen himself free to 
develop his personal hot-line 
communications to the elec- 
torate, which is clearly the 
most powerful weapon in the 
Alliance armoury. 

The two most dangero us 
threats to SDP unity when the 
Conference began were from 
differences over nuclear de- 
fence policy and misgivings 
about the SDP scheme for 
merging tax and social bene- 
fits. The potential row over 
post-Polaris nuclear defence 
between the dominant 
Owenites on the one side and 
on the other the Liberals and 
the SDP supporters of Mr 
William Rodgers, has been 
successsfully avoided by 
genuflection to the idea of a 
European nuclear deterrent on 
which both Dr Owen and Mr 
Steel have agreed. 

The row over the cost to tax- 
payers. with relatively small 
earnings of the scheme for tax 
and benefits has been defused 
in a rather different way by Dr 
Owen himse lf He did this by 
embracing the scheme with 
unexpectedly wholehearted 
enthusiasm yesterday, despite 
his apparent concern earlier 
about the electoral con- 
sequences of the extra cost to 
many taxpayers with relatively 
modest pay. Indeed, Dr Owen 
made enthusiasm for the 
merger scheme the .policy 

centrepiece of his speech. Far 
from apologizing for the cost 
of the scheme to some tax- 
payers, he baldly asserted that 
the SDP had decided not to 
raise taxes, not to put up rales, 
and to build on whatever 
standard rate they inherited, if 
they came to power, whether it 
was 27p or even 25p, fitting 
their structure to that basic 

It is, to say the least, odd 
that he could feel able to be 
quite so confident about taking 
as sacrosanct a standard rate 
tax legacy. Logic would suggest 
that whatever standard rate 
tax-levels the Alliance ac- 
cepted in power would depend 
on their own overall econ omic 
and financial policy and on 
how the scheme interacted 
with this. 

To say the least, some hard 
questions of arithmetic and 
theory will have to be put to 
the SDP in view of the 
somewhat arbitrary selection 
of figures given by Dr Owen 
yesterday, all of which just 
happened to stress the benefi- 
ciaries rather than the losers 
from the scheme as planned. 
For the time being, however. 
Dr Owen has taken his stand 
on his belief that altruism and 
conscience will bring electoral 
support for the scheme. So it 
may if the scheme is generally 
thought to be just. But though 
it is right in principle, the 
electorate may not be so sure 
that it will be justly applied. 

Dr Owen's presentation of 
the SDP as the party of 
altruism, rationality, common 
sense and trustworthiness was 
the heart of his speech^ He 
thinks that the electorate will 
turn to him and his party 


Turkey had been given the 
“green light" to resume politi- 
cal relations with the Euro- 
pean Community, said Sir 
Geoffrey Howe after this 
week's foreign ministers’ meet- 
ing in Brussels. But the For- 
eign Secretary got his traffic 
signals wrong. In fact, the 
Turks have been put on red 
and amber. 

The Association Agreement 
between Ankara and the EEC 
was suspended following the 
imposition of martial law in 
Turkey six years ago. Now 
Turkey’s return to civilian rule 
and economic growth under a 
moderate government have 
furnished the country with its 
most powerful argument for a 
return to the status quo ante. 
In January 1981 however, 
Greece entered the Commu- 
nity, thereby ensuring that 
relations between Ankara and 
Brussels could hardly be quite 
the same again — at least not 
for some years to come. 

The Turks have made little 
secret of their ambition not 
just to reactivate the agree- 
ment but in time to become 
the Community's 13th mem- 
ber. Turkish industrialists who 
turn to the East to pray, look 
West when assessing their 
commercial future. And so do 
Ankara's politicians who see in 

the EEC a means of shoring up 
Turkish democracy against 
any further terrorist cam- 
paigns and consequent incur- 
sions by the mditaiy. 

There are good reasons for 
the West to sympathize with 
this.aspiration. Turkey is, after 
all, an established member of 
Nato, with the alliance’s big- 
gest army outside the United 
States. Its position command- 
ing the Dardanelles and strad- 
dling some of the ancient land 
routes between Russia and the 
Gulf, make its strength and 
welfare a matter of some 
importance to Western se- 

That is why it is important 
for the Community to im- 
prove its relationship with 
Turkey. The major Northern 
democracies like West Ger- 
many, France and this country 
are justifiably anxious that 
relations should be nor- 

But they are understandably 
wary of moving loo fast too 
soon. The Greeks, who are 
downright opposed, cite the 
need for still greater improve- 
ment in Turkey’s record on 
human rights, an end to 
discrimination against Greek 
citizens living in Turkey and 
the withdrawal of Turkish 
troops from Northern Cyprus. 

In the autumn of 1 982 an air of

quite different Women can- 
didates have made their stron- 
gest showing in the mid-term 
primaries ever. They have 
captured nominations tor uie 
whole gamut of state and 
federal offices, from governor 
to senator. And their advance 
has been as strong in tne 
Republican Party as it has 
been among the tradmonafly 
more feminist-minded Derncn 
crats. Strangely, though, 
women’s movement as it was 
even four years ago is now less 
in evidence. 

Opinions already differ 
about how many of this week s 
women's victors owe there 
success to the delayed impact 
of the women's movement ana 
the affirmative action it 
lered. and how many have 
achieved their success tor 
other reasons. Some. llj “r 
Kathleen Kennedy Townsend 
had the advantage of 
pedigree: others relied solely 
on their professional or politi- 
cal record and their campaign- 
ing ability. 


But there is general agree- 
ment that feminism, in the 
sense of aggressive campaign- 
ing for equal rights and 
opportunities for women so- 
cially and professionally, 
played only a minor rote, if 
any. in the candidates' cam- 
paigns. If some women en- 
tered politics through the 
feminist movement others 
did so on ostensibly anti- 
feminist issues like opposition 
to abortion. But this time most 
women politicians — the Ken- 
nedy scion among them — 
campaigned along entirely 
conventional lines, emphasiz- 
ing the needs of working 
couples with, children (ie the 
new^style American family). 

In this respect, the women 
now nominated wifi be able to 
claim that they were elected on 
their own merits and not to 
make a feminist point, and this 
is all to the good. If women 
political candidates, are being 
judged on the same basis as 
male candidates, on their mas- 
tery of foe issues, on their 
integrity, political acumen and 
capacity to do the job, then' 
one of the main — and most 
sympathetic - aims of the 
feminist movement wifi have 
been achieved. 

But any attempt to make 
this the accepted explanation 
for the nomination of so many 
women and give the equal 
rights movement all the credit 
should be tinged with caution. 
After Geraldine Ferraro’s ini- 
tially impressive performance 
in the last presidential cam- 
paign, politics became a 
.fashionable, pastime for 

International profile for security 

because they are different from 
the old parties of the right and 
left with their vested interests 
and rival claims to the monop- 
oly of truth. But for a poli- 
tician who places an anathema 
on the old politics, Dr Owen 
shows himself remarkably 
skilled in die old arts of 
political persuasion and 
presentation. Yesterday be 
was no less willing than his 
opponents to stake his party's 
pfaim to be able to inspire foe 
trust of foe electors as they 
could not, and often seemed to 
speak as though his party's 
wish to promote unity in foe 
nation was enough to ensure 
its achievement. 

He also defied both foe 
Conservatives and Labour to 
try ignoring foe wishes of their 
own voters by refusing to do a 
deal with the Alliance in the 
event of a hung parliament 
Neither Conservative nor La- 
bour voters would forgive 
their party for risking letting 
foe old foe into power. One ot 
foe other would have to do a 
deal with foe Alliance which 
would look first to whichever 
had foe huger number of votes 
in foe country. If not foe 
Alliance would not hesitate to 
precipitate a second election, 
and foe voters would know 
who to blame and reward foe 
Alliance. It was a splendid 
show of confidence from foe 
one wan who makes foe 
Alliance a force to be reckoned 
with by his personal skill at 
public communic ations. On 
foe other hand. Dr Owen 
should perhaps beware lest the 
public comes to suspect (for 
lack of facts, figures and a 
willingnss to face hard op- 
tions) that it is really some- 
thing of a confidence trick. 

But Bonn is equally anxious 
about the implementaion of a 
1960s principle which would 
allow foe free movement of 
Turkish workers around foe 
Community, at a time when 
1.5 million Turks, many now 
unemployed, are already frying 
in West Germany. 

It is commonly said that 
Turkey is not ready to join foe 
community, that its industrial 
base would crumble beneath 
foe weight of unbridled Euro- 
pean competition. But it is 
perhaps more true that foe 
Community is not ready yet 
for Turkey. It took Europe 
more than a decade to absorb 
Britain, spiritually and above 
all financially. It has problems 
with Greece and is still digest- 
ing Spain and Portugal. For it 
now to take in another non- 
paying guest would ttertainly 
delay the process of closer 

The proper answer to any 
Turkish inquiries about 
membership of foe Commu- 
nity must continue to be: “Not

anywhere else and no Turkish

women and voting for a 
woman became a fashionable 
pastime for men. US society 
moves fast, especially on foe 
two coasts. The women will 
have to prove themselves in 
office before their victory can 
be said to be won. 

Inevitably, the political suc- 
cess of women will be bailed 
by minority groups, not only 
in the United Slates, as ev- 
idence that campaigns for 
equality and affirmative -ac- 
tion work. Such a conclusion is 
premature. Women constitute 
54 per cent of foe US popula- 
tion; hardly a minority. Many 
of foe political attitudes be- 
lieved to be associated with the 
female half of foe electorate, a 
dislike of a^ressive talk, a 
greater tolerance-of tax-funded 
welfare payments and a pref- 
erence for compromise, find a 
response among people who 
have misgivings about foe 
Reagan . approach. Women 
politicians have also spear- 
headed the anti-drugs cam- 

Blacks. Hispanics and other 
minority groups have a much 
narrower appeal* and their 
quest for power is still seen by 
many as a threat especially if 
they campaign as repre- 
sentatives of their ethnic 
group, rather than as repre- 
sentatives of a party. This 
week's women victors appear 
to have recognized that — 
even wifo toeir numerical 
strength — a feminist platform 
is not a sufficient basis for 
office. Those without the 
numerical advantage wifi have 
to recognize it too. 

From Mr Jonathan Beds 
Sir. Mr. M. Yardley's article 
(September 1 0) on “Whai we must 
do to curb ihe terrorists” contains 
some misapprehensions. 

He says security systems should 
“be as unobtrusive as possible and 
should always present a human 
face when they come into contact 
with the public”. He sees the 
policemen with machine guns at 
Heathrow as “a visible sign of 
insecurity”. He then goes on to 
praise the Israelis for having been 
“so successful”. 

Has Mr Yardley ever tried 
boarding an S A1 flight anywhere, 
lei alone in Israel itsen? The 
security profile presented to the 
public and, more to the point, to 
the potential terrorist at El A1 
check-in counters is positively 
daunting. It is not friendly, but it is 
effective. There are rimes when 
high profile security is desirable 
because it provides a measure of 

Mr Yardley's main suggestion, 
that “a truly international unit”. 
, modelled on the SAS, GSG9 and 
Delta, should be created under the 
aegis of the International Civil 
Aviation Organisation and the 
International Air Transport 
Association, to respond to terror- 
ist incidents in countries without 
an adequate counter-terrorist re- 
sponse force of their own. is 
unrealistic. ICAO and 1ATA 
would be the first to agree that 
they are no more structured and 
l equipped to take this on than, say.

Prison design 

From the Director of the Prison 
Reform Trust 

Sir. 1 entirely accept the statement 
(September 10) from the Director 
General of the Prison Service that 
the new top-security prison at Full 
* Sutton will be used for the purpose 
for which it was designed. Equally, 
I hope that he win accept that the 
correspondence from the Prison 
Department which formed the 
basis of our briefing of your Home 
Affairs Correspondent was legiti- 
mately capable of a different 
interpretation since it plainly 
states that the role of Full Sutton 
was under review. 

It remains my view that when 
Full Sutton comes on stream the 
prison service will be encumbered 
with a surfeit of top-security 
accommodation. It is pertinent 
that as early as 1 982 senior Home 
Office officials were expressing 
concern over the need for another 
dispersal prison. . . 

This was followed in 1984 by a 
report from a committee of senior 
governors and Civil Servants — 
the Control Review Committee — 
which called into question the 
whole dispersal prison philosophy 
and recommended “a significant 
reduction" in their number. That 
Full Sutton should still proceed in 
•these circumstances more than 
justifies our continuing unease 
about the whole prison budding 

Church in crisis 

From the Rev Christopher Lewis 
Sir, The extracts which you have 
printed (September 8-10) from 
The Church in Crisis make in- 
triguing reading. I wonder why 
people take the trouble to moan so 
much about the Church if it is so 
insignificant AH the “crisis” 
books seem to have the same baric 
assumption, namely that the 
Church is declining because its 
clergy are inadequate. 

No doubt it is true that we are 
inadequate, but I imagine that the 
Church has been consistently 
second rate, much in the manner 
described, since AD. What's new? 

Has H struck the writers that it is 
worth examining another hypoth- 
esis: that the Churches are all 
declining because people are 
becoming more pagan by choice. 
Britain is perhaps going in the 
direction of Sweden (godless and 
self-satisfied) rather than that of 
the - USA (church-going and 

To analyse the current (perhaps 
temporary) decline as a con- 
sequence of the choice to be 1 pagan 
is more worrying, but it may be 
more profound. 

Yours faithfully.

Jordan dismissals 

From the Ambassador of Jordan 
Sir. I have read with great interest 
the letter published in The Times 
(September 12) from a group of 
academicians in Oxford Univer- 
sity under the beading “Concern 
over Jordan dismissals”, and as 
much as it pleased me to find that 
such distinguished Britons are 
concerned with events in my 
country, it also disheartened me to 
find their letter so misinformed 
about the fact of the said event at 
YarmouJc University, having 
based it on incorrect and highly 
exaggerated reports by the media. 

It goes without saying that 
demonstrations among students 
are familiar events in universities 
the world over for a spectrum of- 
reasons, ranging from discontent 
to internal rivalry among certain 
groups of students, to conflicts 
between the student body and the 
university staff. Yarmouk Univer- 
sity is certainly no exception. 

However, these events in 
Yarmouk found immediate and 
prompt action from the Jordanian 
Government, which co-operated 
with the univeristy’s administra- 
tion in forming an official 
committee of inquiry, the mem- 
bers of which are chosen with the 
utmost care to include specialised 

The history of the deployments 
even of UN peace-keeping forces 
has been fraught with difficulties 
and delays. When a terrorist 
incident involving the taking of 
hostages occurs, the requirement 
is to deploy a response team 
immediately, to start . planning an 
assault if it becomes necessary. 

In the case of the recent hijack at 
Karachi, even if such an inter- 
national team had been able and 
allowed to deploy on the ground 
within 24 hours of the start of the 
incident, it would still have been 
several hours too late. And the 
complexities which would be cre- 
ated by the deployment of an 
international response team, with 
intructions to kill or capture 
terrorists, rather than to keep the 
peace bet wen two rides, are mind- 

What is needed, on an inter- 
national scale, is more and better 
research into methods of prevent- 
ing terrorists from carrying out 
their actions. The creation of an 
independent international study 
and research foundation, based in 
the United Kingdom, to which 
responsible governments would 
have access and to which they 
would be invited to contribute in 
terms of expertise and data, would 
be a major step forward. 

Yours faithfully.

Indeed, the acknowledged de- 
sign failings in several of the new 
establishments may be seen as the 
inevitable consequence of the 
Home Office's unseemly rush into 
new construction. Although it is 
proper to record recent improve- 
ments in procedures, what has 
been hitherto a lack of strategic 
planning is itself a result of the fact 
that over the years the Home 
Office has readily embraced a 
succession of quite differing ratio- 
nales in support of additional 
capital spending. 

At the conclusion to his letter, 
the Director General notes that 
the Government has “responded 
fully” to the trenchant criticisms 
of the prison building programme 
voiced earlier this year by the 
Public Accounts Committee. 

In fact, this response consists of 
just 16 paragraphs in a Treasury 
minute (Cmnd 9859) presented to 
Parliament in the week of the 
summer recess. This starts from 
the premise that the size of “the 
prison population is not within 
the control of the Home Office", a 
statement which would have sur- 
prised Viscount Whitelaw and 
indeed most Home Secretaries 
this century.

Food for the hungry 

From Mr T. N. W.Bush 
Sir, Your correspondent in the 
Ivory Coast reports (September 
10) on the new threat to crops 
from locusts and grasshopper. 

As a boy m Swaziland during 
the devastating locust infestation 
of the early 1930s I was taught by 
black herdboys bow to cook 
locusts on a piece of iron over an 
open fire They were quite de- 
licious, tasting like salted peanuts, 
and were, of course, rich in 
protein. Has anyone investigated 
this possible source of food in 
famine-stricken Africa ?

This committee was entrusted 
with a fact-finding mission to 
throw fight on the undercurrents 
which led to the creation of a

After a lengthy and careful study 
of the findings of this committee, 
the Government dealt with the 
situation in a fair and humane 
manner, bearing in mind only the 
interest of the university, its 
professors and students, as a result 
of which normal fife was restored 
to the university, and the smooth 
running of its affairs and studies 
has resumed unimpaired.

Doctors who fail 
to grasp the law 

From AfrJohn Finch 
Sir, Misconceptions of the law can 
colour doctors' decision-making. 
Such misconceptions go not only 
to what the law says but more 
deeply into the very nature of legal 
regulation of professional practice. 

A case which could have this 
effect is that of Wilsher v Essex 
Area Health Authority. The 
disturbing headline to your Law 
Report of that case (August 6), 
“Doctor's inexperience no defence 
to negligence”, is not supported by 
the fun. original transcript of the 
judgments without much refine- 

The defendant health authority 
in the case was liable as employer 
of an experienced and knowledge- 
able registrar. The 
“inexperienced” senior house offi- 
cer (more junior) was acquitted of 
negligence by aU three Court of 
Appeal judges. The decision, of 
some 85 pages, significantly quali- 
fies the liability of inexperienced 

Your correspondents (August 
28) incorrectly refer to “punitive 
damages” Such damages, oyer 
and above ordinary compensation 
for personal injury, are inconceiv- 
able in a medical negligence 
action. A case derided last year. 
Kralj v McGrath, put this beyond 

Medical misconceptions of legal 
responsibility have two results. 
First, “defensive medicine” is 
practised in fear of a perceived 
and frequently unreal foe. This is 
not defensiveness; it is 
defensivism. As such it is the 
enemy both of doctors and of 
those they treat. 

Second, a cry rises up for a new 
type of compensation indepen- 
dent of the need to prove fault 
Such a system is not without its 
defects, as New Zealand knows. 

Our fault-based compensation 
system for medical accidents is 
undergoing extensive 

rationalisation. It should be much 
better understood by the very 
practitioners to whom it applies. 
To succeed in this task would be to 
make the “devil” we know present 
as a more manageable risk. 

Professionals could get on with 
exercising their judgement with 
greater reassurance. A failure to 
get across the legal parameters of 
professional medical practice may 
cause medical attitudes to law to 
feed on superstition, misconcep- 
tion and ignorance. That would be 
to the advantage of none, and to 
the disadvantage of a great many.

Pregnancies at risk 

From Professor Marlin Bobrow 
and others 

Sir, Your report of September 6 
highlights the progress in develop- 
ing gene probes that has made it 
possible to screen pregnancies at 
high risk of such common genetic 
diseases as cystic fibrosis and 
muscular dystrophy. 

Some couples who are carriers 
of these conditions may be 
tempted by this news to contem- 
plate undertaking pregnancies that 
they have previously denied them- 
selves. We would like to caution 
them that extensive testing of a 
whole family before the start of 
pregnancy is necessary before such 
diagnosis can be undertaken. 

Furthermore, at least in the 
South-east the parlous ' state of 
NHS finances means that despite 
recognition of the importance of 
these new techniques, resources 
are not available to fund them 
adequately. What testing can be 
undertaken must, therefore, be 
supported by short-term arrange- 
ments with charitable organiza- 
tions. and our limited capacity 
could well be saturated by sudden

British Library 

From Mr George Chowdharay- 

Sir. Some of us. who share Lord 
Thomas of Swynncrton's doubts 
(September 5) about the new 

British Library' building without 

going the whole way with him. 
would find Lord Quinton’s and 
the British Library Board’s argu- 
ments (September 10) more 
convincing if we had not read of 
the fate in ancient times of the 
great library of Alexandria, and 
more recently of the public records 
housed in the Four Courts at 
Dublin, both destroyed by fire. 

These are strong historical argu- 
ments in favour of a reasonable 
dispersal rather than an over- 
concentration of collections. 

We abo have doubts about the 
new building itself, for we have 
heard rumours that many readers 
and staff will not be able to see the 
sky and wc shall be slowly blinded 
by excessive quantities of com- 
pulsory fluorescent light, which 
will not only cost a great deal of 
money but will render large parts 
of the new library unusable in the 
meni of a power cut or long-term 
failure of fossil-fuel resources.

SEPTEMBER 18 1838 

The London and Birmingham 
Railway wax not the first fine out 
it was the first of any length and 
the first which had any import on 
the commercial and social lifeaf ■ 
the country. Among the spectators 
at Rugby was the formidable 
headmaster Dr Arnold who was 
heard to remark, "I rejoice to see 
it and tn think that feudality has 
gone for ever”. The L. and B. 
became the London and North- 
West — the '’premier line and 
in 1922 amalgamated with the 
Midland, the Lancashire £ 
Yorkshire, the Caledonia and 
others to farm the London 
Midland and Scottish. 


Yesterday was the first day that 
the complete line of railroad from 
the London to the Birmingham 
terminus was opened. The portion 
of the road which was traversed for 
the first time on this occasion was 
that which extends between the old 
station at Denbigfa-hall and the 
station at Rugby -The first train 
started from the Euaton -square 
station at 7 o'clock, having in the 
carriages the proprietors of the 
undertaking arid their friends. It 
was said in Birmingham that they 
accomplished the whole journey in 
four hours and a half ...The portion 
of the line just opened, from 
Denbigb-hall to Rugby, appears to 
be equally good with any other part 
of the road. It is in this division of 
the road, shortly before entering 
Rugby station, that the trains pass 
through Kilsly tunnel. It has been 
asserted that this tunnel fell in 
during the boring of it. but it is not 
the case. It is one of the moat 
extraordinary pieces of road in the 
whole line. The length of this 
tunnel is 2A00 yards in length, and 
(foes great credit to the skill of Mr. 
Foster, the engineer by whom it 
has been completed —The road, as 
most persons know, passes through 
six of the most beautiful counties 
of England — Middlesex, Hertford- 
shire. Buckinghamshire. Bedford- 
shire. Northampshire, and 
Warwickshire, and through a fine 
of country abounding with fine 
prospects! historical recollections, 
and antiquities. One drawback to 
travelling by the railroad however 
is. that for many miles it is so 
buried between lofty embank- 
ments. that, nothing can be seen 
but the sides of the trench, and this 
is more particularly the case where 
a prospect of the seats and parks of 
the nobility and gentry would be 
most desirable. Another disagree- 
able is the passing through the 
tunnels, of which in the whole fine 
there are seven. The road is crossed 
by numerous bridges, all of excel- 
lent wo rkmanship , and some of 
considerable elegance. That part of 
the rood which has been open some 
time has been repeatedly described, 
but that portion which was opened 
yesterday for the first time is of 
course less known. One of the 
principal places through which it 
. passes is Weedon. This place is 67 
miles from London. The Roman 
Watling-street comes dose to it, 
the rail-road of 2JJ00 years ago. It 
was a place of some importance in 
the time of the Saxons, as it is 
recorded that Wulphere, one of the 
Kings of Mercia, built a palace 
here, which was afterwards con- 
verted into a nunnery by his 
daughter Werfaruga. From the rail- 
road the traveller looks down upon 
the barracks of the town, which are 
very spacious, cont a ining an hospi- 
tal, parade, &c. This extensive 
depot is, as a military establish- 
ment, not surpassed by any in the 
kingdom; it is capable of receiving 

200.000 stand of arms. A great 
quantity of warlike stores and 
artillery are generally deposited 
here. The Grand Junction Canal 
communicates with the store- 
houses, and dose to them the rail- 
road posses. The Grand Junction 
Canal is carried across the valley by 
means of a very noble embankment 
on the left. The village, on the right 
of which the square tower of the 
church may be seen, is Flowe; it is 
beautifully situate in the valley. 
From the summit of the hill above 
Weedon may be distinguished 
Faws ley-park, the seat of Sir C- 
Knightley. The house is one of the 
finest sped mens remaining of the 
manorial residences of the old 
English gentry. It stands in an 
extensive park abounding with 
enormous trees and filled with 
deer. At Dedford. which is a little 
beyond Weedon. the labourers held 
a fete in honour of the day. There 
were nearly 800 persons assembled, 
enjoying themselves in various 
ways — The most beautiful town, 
or rather city, on the whole line is, 
however, Coventry. The spires of 
St. Michael's church, 300 feet high, 
of the Holy Trinity, and of the 
Grey Friars, are the great oma- 
ment of the neighbourhood —

• r 

I n rcccnt introductions to 
General Appointments 
there has been a mood of 
urgent optimism, such as 
might be expressed by the 
manager to a football team trailing 
O-l at half-time: and excellent 
advice has appeared - much of it 
understandably, in the form of 
exhortation to higher, abstract 
virtues. However, it is necessary 
from Jimc to time to return to 
more basic considerations — to 
review, for example, what it is that 
is being sought in these pages 
when the word-manager” is used. 

A distinction has been made in 
recent years between a leader and 
a manager. Those who made iu 
and those who. subscribe to iu 
claim that this is not an esoteric 
division:, the cficctivcncss of an 
organization can depend upon 
knowing which one of these two 
different creatures it needs. 

In brief! leaders are defined very 
much as they always have been — - 
as innovators, risk-takers, creators 
of excitement, guides to The Way. 

Managers, on the other hand, 
arc viewed as bureaucrats. More 
and more the traditional view of 
the manager as a dynamic leader is 
being challenged. He is being seen, 
not as an initiator, but as one who 
reacts to keep his .organization 
balanced and to keep the number 
of possible options to a minimum. 

Given the need for change, the 
manager will do his best to adapt 
his own behaviour - a need which 
in recent years has led to a 
proliferation of “management" 
courses which have behaviour- 
modification os one of their 
primary goals. 

The leader, on the other hand, 
seeks to change the circumstances. 
Managers adapt to their inherited 
surroundings, as one .eminent 
writer has put iu “like a 
chameleon”. Organizations need 
such adaptable people, of course. 

Yet a confusion remains. There 
are several possible reasons for 
this. The first is semantic. The 
word manager itself seems to 
combine two. very different func- 
tions. In his Keywords: A Vocabu- 
lary of Culture and Society 
Raymond Williams points out the 
two different probable origins of 
“manage*': one from the Italian 
word meaning to handle, asa lion- 
tamer might “handle” his lions, 
and the other from the French 
word for running the household. 

The overlap was already present 
in the English of the 18th century, 
and our modem usage certainly 
includes both connotations. Prob- 
ably most would agree that a 
manager is expected to “handle" 
employees and at the same lime 
run the day-to-day doings of his 
organizational “household". The 

The roles of leaders 
and managers, both 
significant in British 
business today, 
are examined 
by Roger Willis 

problem arises when these two 
functions become separable, or. 
indeed, incompatible. 

The double meaning of the title 
does not allow for separation. The 
word can assume two. un- 
expressed. meanings in two 
minds, and communication can 
break down. Many organ izationf, 
particularly on their annual gradu- 
aic-rccruitmcnt rounds, appear to 
be asking for leaders, or potential 
leaders, only to subject the 
successful applicants to a period of 
“orientation" to a new culture, 
which will, sooner rather than 
later, press them into conformity 
or cause frustration or resentment. 

1 have recently observed a case 
where a senior, but newly ap- 
pointed. manager was sacked for 

not behaving according to the 
expected pattern. Months later, he 
is still bewildered: “But ! thought 
they wanted me to manage he 

Another possible reason for the 
confusion is tradition. particularly 
when the management function is 
taken for granted. For some iime 
now. researchers have been find- 
ing that, in fact, managers do not 
spend their time actively doing 
those things they have long been 
assumed (and perhaps have even 
been taught) to do — planning, 
organizing, d i reel ing/1 ending, 

What they do is to implement 
directives from their superiors, 
attend meetings, arrange for things 
to be done that others (including 

the members of these meetings) 
have proposed, sort out 
subordinates' and operational 
problems - to react, in brief, to 
events over which the manager 
has far less control than • is 
generally supposed. 

. Peter Druckcr recently (May 
1986) suggested that in the 
“knowledge-based” organization, 
the knowledge workers are the 
bosses with the manager in a 
supporting role as planner and co- 
ordinator. I have myself 
“managed" a highly competent 
professional group, and described 
myself at that lime as a ware- 
house-keeper. My main function 
was merely to ensure that the team 
had all the resources it needed in 
order to continue producing its 
excellent results. 

A third reason can possibly be 
found in the organization's cul- 
ture. This is the focus of a great 
deal of current attention. A popu- 
lar theory holds that managerial 
effectiveness is to be measured by 
the extent to which three things 
overlap: competence required by 
the job: the actual competence of 
the incumbent: and organizational 

The last element can be defined 
as that which makes an organiza- 
tion unique: the economic and 
political environment in which it 
functions, its product, market 

trends, the personality of its head, 
hs traditions, philosophies, goals 
and a- number of other 

Culture determines the way 
people behave. What is perfectly 
acceptable intone organization 
may be as totally unacceptable in 
another. This means that man- 
agers doing very similar work can 
be happy in one organization, but 
miserable in another — even. I 
.have found, in different divisions 
of the same company. 

"Fitting inio our way of doing 
things” can therefore be a prime 
consideration for a manager, 
though not. of course, fora leader. 

T he main problem here is 
that very few organiza- 
tions seem to define 
their culture accurately. 
Some try. and get it 
wrong - for example, claiming to 
manage by objectives and results, 
while promoting people on 
grounds of seniority or loyalty. 

Others find it extremely diffi- 
cult because .the subject has never 
before been raised. Unless delib- 
erately and systematically pur- 
sued. it remains locked below the 
level of consciousness, rather like 
personal idiosyncracies. 

This is then a plea for organiza- 
tional self-examination. Those 

who are responsible for filling 
vacancies should conductafour 
fold investigation before drafting 
managerial position-descriptions: 

• What will this person actually 
do 1 * 

• What knowledge and skills arc 
required lo do these things. _ 

• What observable characteristics 
arc needed? 

• Will the answers produce an 
incumbent who will fit mioour 
way of doing things - or will he or 
she rock the boat? Do wc want the 
boat rocked? 

The approach needs to be 
systematic: and there arc &ocw- 
proven systems to hand. The 
results arc sometimes surpnsmg — 
as in at least two cases 1 know of! 
where the ideal candidate proved 
10 be intcmaL though currently 
cmplovcd in an “unlikely” depart- 
ment. ’But such results arc prac- 
tically guaranteed to be 
measurably more effective than 
those produced by no system at

Science report 

Acid test for heartburn 

By a Spe cial Correspondent 

New insights into heartburn btK cone from 
research involving a scientist “drinking" hydro- 
chloric add through a tube in his nose. 

It is part of an investigation fey Dr Aian 
Cdmuagton, of the Bradford University School of 
Control Fa gineering . He has developed an 
instrument wMdi measures aridity in the gullet 
aad this is a direct measure of so-called reflux epi- 
sodes. or attacks, of heartburn. 

Reflux is the reverse of the usual direction of 
flow in the digestive system, when food is bring 
dissolved by hydrochloric arid ha the stomach. 

Normally, the lining of the stomach is protected 
against acid bat in heartboni the add is pushed up 
into the gnlkt. The effects on it of refine can be 
painful as well as seriously damaging, and 
repeated episodes canse ulcers. 

In a healthy person, reflux is prevented by a 
one-way valve. Bat in heartburn, for some reason 
not properly understood, the valve relaxes for a 
while and lets food and digestive acids flow back 

The difficulty in investigating this condinoa is 
that the riling * which make it happen occur while 
people are going about their normal lires. If a per- 
son is kept in hospital for investigation, then it 
may not react. 

Bad Dr Cuoningfon's instrument measures 
acidity in the gullet while tbe person involved goes 
about Ms normal life. 

The instrument consists of a thin wire clad in a 

narrow flexible tube with a bulb hill of lMpnd on 
one end of it. The bulb is made of a type of grass 
through which ions, electrically-charged atoms, 
can pass. The stronger the adds, tbe more roas 
they contain. When the tube and bulb are passed 
op the nose, down tbe gvltet and left there, if a re- 
flux occurs, the arid round the bulb will cause hub 
to flow in through the glass. 

This sets up an electric current which flows 
along (he wire to the outside where it is recorded 
in a video cassette-sized pack worn by the patient. 
Meanwhile the patient keeps a log of his 
activities. After 24 hours doctors compare the 
records of refluxes with a record of activity and 
work out which activities caused refluxes. 

Doctors using Dr Cmmwgtoa's equipment at 
Bradford Royal Infirmary have found it very 
effective in helping them to pinpoint the causes ot 
refluxes. More than 300 patients have beat tested 
in Bradford and several other hospitals plan to 
use the system. 

Dr Curaingtoa is extend^ his research, asmg 
fri mgg ir as a guinea pig. He is testing and 
calibrating new instruments by drinking hydro- 
chloric arid with several different experimental 
probes suspended in his gnlkt 

He says, reassuringly, that tbe arid he drinks is 
no stro n ger than that in his stomach. He sees the 
idea bring extended to measure other variables in 
tbe got while patients live normal lives outside

When she was mamea on

watched by more than 20

In I9S3 she started a phone-

Her first marriage, to an

Alan Browning, who had been

For the past six years she

her last appearance in January

to Manchester as a baby. She 
was raised by her mother after 
it emerged that her father was

conceived a passionate dislike 
for the man her mother subse-

As a schoolgirl of II she 
wrote to Aunty Muriel at the

On leaving school she 
worked briefly in the gas

Billy Bishop, warden of the 
Norfolk Naturalists' Trust's 
bird reserve at Gey Marshes 
from 1937 to 1979, died on 
September 3>, aged 73. During 
his 40 years as warden Gey 
became one of Europe's lead- 
ing reserves for migrating 
birds, bringing back many rare 
species to the north Norfolk 
coast, including avoceis and 
bearded tits. 

Bishop was boro on Decem- 
ber 17, 1914, at Blakeney, 
north Norfolk, the son of a 
fisherman, and was educated 
•at the local village school. But 
it was on his walks with his 
grandfather. Robert Bishop, 
the first warden of Gey 
marshes, that he felt he re- 
ceived his true education, 
when they would spend many 
hours bird-watching. 

Gey marshes became a bird 
reserve in 1926, when a doc- 
tor. Sydney Long, bought 400 
acres of marshland, used 
mainly for shooting. Dr Long 
recognized the marshes' po- 
tential as a bird reserve, since 
it was an obvious staging post 
for migratory birds returning 
from their Arctic breeding 
grounds, particularly waders, 
wildfowl and seabirds. 

Before 1935 be was a crew 
member of the Blakeney Point 
lifeboat and during the war he 
served with the Royal Navy 
on Arctic convoys. Apart from 
this absence on active service, 
he spent his whole life at Gey. 
taking over as warden in 1937. 

Jt was his ambition to 
introduce four new species to 
the reserve. Two of these, the 
avocet and the bearded tit are 
now well established. Bishop 
achieved this by controlling 
the water levels of the channel 
which runs from Blakeney 
Harbour through the marshes 
to the next village of 
Salthouse. to create a system 
of “scrapes”, or small lagoons, 
with just the right degree of 
salination in the water to 
attract waders. 

Bishop retired in 1979. By 
1985 there were 54 pairs of 
avocets at the reserve, and 
20.000 people, many from 
abroad, visiting every year. 
His son Bernard, who look 
over as warden, is working to 
bring in the other two species 
which his father tried to 
introduce:, the bar-tailed god- 
wit and the ruff. 

Billy Bishop's knowledge of 
birds was deep and instinc- 
tive. to the extent of enabling 
him to predict their move- 
ments and recognize a species 
in flight at extreme range. He 
was highly regarded bv the 
Duke of Edinburgh, who sent 
Prince Charles and Princess 
Anne to Gey as children to 
learn about birds. 

He was a cheerful, forthright 
man who told good stories, 
but his outspokenness con- 
tained no hint of arrogance. 

, His wife Joyce, died in 
1984. and they had three sons 
and a daughter. 


Geoffrey Horsfall, MBE, 
who died last month aged 71, 
was an architect who, as a 
servant of the LCC and GLC 
left his mark on the.&ce of 
London. He was responsible 
for the construction of many 
public buildings in the Lon- 
don area, ranging from the 
Queen Elizabeth Hall to fire 
stations and flyovers. 

Geoffrey FhmeU Horsfall 
was born at Huddersfield on 
June 29. 1915. There was a 
strong architectural tradition 
in his family, and he in turn 
graduated in architecture at 
Liverpool University, 

Soon afterwards, on the 
outbreak of war. he joined the 
Royal Engineers and became 
an expert in bomb disposal, 
handling many difficult and 
dangerous incidents in Lon- 
don and the South of England. 
He reached the rank of captain 

not at this period, responsible 
for any domestic architecture, 
so cannot be blamed for the 
plethora of high -rise buildings, 
about which in any case he 
always had reservations. 

When the LCC was replaced

Once there »as Ax* Choice; 
™*5« K Talking to Writ- 
ers (Channel 4), a new series of 
interviews with ‘“writers of 
international repute", a 
“world toor" of contemporary 
letters. It boded ill for the 
programme's internationalist 
ambitions that its presenter 
Hermione Lee last night mis- 
pronounced the surname of 
her first subject, Mario Var- 
gas Llosa, both to camera and 
to his face. Sefior Llosa re-

ascendancy over radio. The

the dnbions side; Miss 1 #

hard to see how the trans-

gestures and, despite John 
Shrapnel's splendidly gutsy

It is a mark of this country's changing 
theatrical climate that actors and 
directors of established ability seem 
these days to be seeking freedom from 
the huge organizations which they 
have helped to create. 

Sir Anthony Quayle. who ran 
Stratford in the Fifties, now leads a 
touring company called Compass, 
whose speciality is high-standard 
productions of the classics. John 
Dexter, once a corner-stone of Sir 
Laurence Olivier’s regime at the 
National, has recently joined forces 
with the vctcren impresario Eddie 
Kulukundis to form the New Theatre 
Company and stage The Cocktail 
Puny. Yesterday the director Michael 
Bogdanov and the actor Michael 
Pennington announced the establish- 
ment of their English Shakespeare 
Company, which will take Henry IV 
Parts l & II and Henry V to the' Old 
Vic early next year, after a four-and-a- 
half-momh tour of 1 1 of our leading 
repertory theatres. Bogdanov directs, 
and Pennington plays HaL 

Both of them have done much of 
their most rewarding work, within the 
big. subsidized companies. Penn- 
ington played Hamlet at the end of a 
seven-year career at Stratford, before 
joining the National in 1984 to take 
leading roles in Venice Preserv’d and 
Strlder — The Story of a Horse. 
Bogdanov directed Strider. . has been 
an associate director at the NT since 
1980 and won the SWET award in 
1979 for his RSC Taming of the 

He first directed Pennington at 
Stratford in 1980. when the actor 
played the working-class Dublin poet 
Dona! Davoren in Bogdanov's flinty 
and muscular production of Sean 
O'Casey’s The Shadow of a Gunman. 
Since then they have talked often of 
consolidating their partnership more 

They recently considered offering 
themselves as a. team to Sir Peter 
HalL but the English Shakespeare 
Company emerged first, the result of 
a series of meetings, with the Arts 
Council and the Memshes at the Old 

Private enterprise in Britain’s theatre 
took an imposing step forward with 
yesterday’s announcement of the 
founding of the English Shakespeare 
Company: Michael Bogdanov (left) 
and Michael Pennington talk to 
Andrew Rissik about their 
collaboration in the new venture 

Heady challenge 
of touring on 
the grand scale 

Vic To some extent the choices have 
been made for them, determined by 
the wishes of their backers, who seem 
to have been excited by the prospect 
of two experienced Shakes pearia ns 
able and willing to lake large-scale 
productions on tour. 

Both lay claim to long-nurtured 
ambitions to do the Henry plays, and 
the scale of the project, with all its 
difficulties, appears to offer them an 
adrenalin-drawing combination of 
fear and excitement. “To rehearse 
Three plays in nine weeks must 
register as the balmiest repertory 
schedule of the year”, Pennington .. 
says, with a faintly combative smile. 
“One of my interests is to see if this 
can be done with a minimum of 
bureacracy. Everyone’s in all three 
plays, everyone's playing as cast, 
everyone's understudy. That's a 
familiar attitude lo running an en- 

semble. but in 20 years I've seen it 
more talked about than practised.*' 

“We regard this not as a radical 
breakaway project, but as a rather 
conventional one", Bogdanov adds. 
“We want a company that isn't tied to 
buildings — something like the large- 
scale experimental groups that exist 
in Europe." 

They acknowledge that their 
partnership may seem a curious one. 
It is easy to characterize Pennington 
as a bookish, sweet-spoken classicist. - 
and Bogdanov — who directed How- 
ard Brenton’s scandalously received 
The Romans in Britain — as a racy 
and sharp-talking iconoclast. But, 
Bogdanov emphasizes. “I think, look- 
ing at the way we've developed over 
the last few years — me wanting to 
break with the more traditional forms 
of theatre, and Michael breaking 
brilliantly and radically from the RSC 

with Yuri Lyubimov's Crime and 
Punishment and Strider — there's 
more in common than might 

“When I first worked with Michael 
on Shadow of a Gunman I though 
we'd all be riding around on 
monocyclcs". says Pennington. “In- 
stead. I found he challenged me on 
every single naturalistic detail of my 
performance." Bogdanov replies: 
“What I saw during those rehearsals 
was an actor battling to come to grips 
with a pan he wasn't necessarily 
designed for. Struggling with the 
social background and the accent. 
That strength and determination to 
get it right was what impressed me." 

Both men may be undervalued, in 
their different ways. Pennington's 
work has sometimes seemed too 
reverent, while Bogdanov has often 
been thought too crude, an energeti- 
cally opinionated director who lacks 
subtlety. At his best, though, he has a 
flair and a visual panache rare in the 
English theatre. At the National, his 
Hiawatha and his Ancient Mariner 
were wonderful pieces of theatrical 
storytelling, stark, bold and charged 
with the heady magic of imagined 
worlds. Pennington, too. has a capac- 
ity for the haunted and fantastic It 
dominated his skeletal Raskolnikov, 
his half-mad politician in Brenton's 
Thirteenth Night and his persecuted 
and siow-moving horse. Strider. 

It is easy to see why they want to 
tackle the Henry plays. The epic flux 
of society, the picturesque sprawl of a 
nation in change, is Shakespeare at 
his most searchingly political And 
Harry Monmouth, the layabout 
prince who becomes the Warrior 
King, is the longest and most complex 
role in the canon. Pennington speaks 
for . both of them when he says, 
-simply. “In the end I think we just 
share a terror of boredom".

Israel PO/ 
Festival Hall 

One felt one had arrived laic 
for the party. Here was Leon- 
ard Bernstein having a whale 
of a time conducting his 
Jubilee Games, written Ibis 
year for the Israel Phil- 
harmonic's fiftieth birthday, 
but the celebrations seemed to 
have got out of hand as indeed 
they were out of the hands of 
Bernstein as composer. 

Jubilees may be biblically 
about universal freedom, but 
this is not an easy concept to 
introduce lo a symphony or- 
chestra and. though there was 
a distinct charm in hearing 
Bernstein latch on to what was 
avant-garde 20 years ago (un- 
regulated ensemble, even a 
touch, and mercifully only 
that, of “free improvisation"), 
the result in the first move- 
ment of his piece was a mess. 

The second was more or- 
ganized. though again Bern- 
stein had abdicated to some 
extent, since one Sid Ramin 
was credited for “his invalu- 
able assistance" in orchestrat- 
ing the thing. He must be a 
man of as much patience as 
skill. Entitled “Diaspora 
Dances", the movement set 
out with the nice BanOkian 
idea of bringing different Jew- 
ish traditions dancing to- 
gether. but only a perky little 
woodwind figure (the pro- 

gramme note identified it as 
Hassidic) could hold its own 
against the swing of New 

But if Jubilee Games 
brought us Bernstein diluted. 
Dvorak's “New World" Sym- 
phony offered the real thing. 
The general impression was of 
a Mahler slow movement 
interpolated into a symphony 
by Prokofiev, the Largo being 
unconscionably slow and sclf- 
indulgenily phrased (except 
for the bit that stuck up like 
the Statue of Liberty in a sea of 
tears), while the other three 
movements were done with 
terrifying bounce and a vast 
overload of abrupt staccat- 

These were not the best 
circumstances for making any 
judgement of the orchestra. 
The sound of the strings, 
potentially strong and fine, 
was spoiled by so many small- 
scale inaccuracies of en- 
semble. Since they must long 
have leami to follow Bern- 
stein’s feet rather than his 
baton, perhaps this had more 
to do with jet-lag than with the 
conductor's impulsiveness. 
But the trumpets and trom- 
bones had a good evening. 

Not so Sheri GrcenawakL 
who had diction problems in 
Lukas Foss’s Song of Songs.

her reticence was an at- 
tempted courtesy to the

You have to admire the 
boldness of the London City 
Chamber Orchestra, A whole 
concert of Busoni is not likely 
to be to many people's tastes 
at the best of limes, and when 
it is given by a newish 
orchestra without much of a 
reputation then empty scats 
arc guaranteed. Unfortunately 
those who did come, hoping 
perhaps for enlightenment, 
arc unlikely to have learnt 
much. For quite simply the 
playing, under the direction of 
Thomas McIntosh, was un- 
inspired. and as ftr as the 
strings were concerned often 
unacceptably ragged. 

Despite that, some of the 
music came close to succeed- 
ing. for instance the Berceuse 
clCgiaque, Op 42. which for 
some reason was played in 
Erwin Stein's orchestration 
rather than the composer's 
own (and flavoured, more- 
over. by a harmonium that 
sounded as if it might have 
sprung a leak). Then there was 
a group of five Goethe

1 fail to see the point of 
mounting Kenneth MacMil- 
lan's Quartet for the pro- 
gramme being given three 
performances this week by 
Sadler's Wells Royal Ballet. 
The music is Verdi's Quartet 
in E minor, by no means the 
kind of thing he was best au it 
is given in an arrangement for 
string orchestra ihat heightens 
its lushness. Dancing for its 
own sake, without plot and 
characters to cany it. is not the 
kind that MacMillan is best at 
and this particular example of 
the genre suffers from having 
been put together piecemeaL 

The opening movement was 
made first in Italy as a 
showpiece duet Without the 
speciality steps which Peter 
Schaufuss originally perfor- 
med in it most of the point is 
lost. The Adagio was run up 
hurriedly as a number for four 
dancers to replace an intended 
creation which fell through. 
The remaining movements 
were choreographed later, as 
another duct and an ensemble. 

The total effect is that there 
is no total effect just fidgety, 
ill-assorted and uninspired 
steps filling out the music's 
length. When first given com- 
plete four years ago. it made 

The opening of new museum 
and gallery buildings in West 
Germany still continues 
apace. The latest is the giant 
block between Cologne Cathe- 
dral and the Rhine which 
houses two already existing 
museums, the Museum Lud- 
wig and the Wallraf Richanz 
Museum. The Wallraf Rich- 
anz collection was founded 
with a legacy to the City of 
Cologne in 1824. and natu- 
rally specializes primarily in

no great impression. To see it 
again is the more surprising 
since, although Miyako Yosh- 
ida. Roland Price and Sandra 
Madgwick perform the more 
difficult bits reasonably well, 
it does not show them to any 
real advantage. 

The work has not only been 
exhumed but awarded a set- 
ting which was hot thought 
necessary before. Deborah 
Williams has painted what 
looks like a modernist, 
stripped-down reinterpreta- 
tion of Derain's setting for La 
Boutique fantasqur. a wafl. 
blue curtains and a very, 
watery view through two win- 
dows. It is pretty and innocu- 
ous. but what it has to do with 
Verdi's music her own un- 
flattering costumes or Mac- 
Millan's choreography I 
cannot imagine. 

The programme continues 
with two further ill-chosen 
works. Michael Corder's 
Wand of Youth loses a lot by

drama of childrengrowing up

again, administratively sepa- 
rate. but under one roof. 

Well serried ranks of roofs, 
to be precise. The general 
impression given by the build- 
ing (which also houses the new 
Kolncr Philharmonic) from a 
distance is of a silvery cascade 
of roofs descending towards 
the river, in the giant shadow 
ofthe cathedral. 

Inside, the design of Peter. 
Busmann and Godfrid Hab- 
crer is much more com- 
plicated, intertwining the two 
collections on four floors 
(roughly speaking, since the 
levels are constantly changing) 
and flooding in as much 
natural light as possible — 
especially on the topmost 
floor, which houses a lot of the 
Museum Ludwig's 20th-ccn- 
tur y classics. An ingenious 
pattern of roof-coves (rather 
similar to that in the new- 
Dusscldorf gallery) allows the 
top Ifehi to be varied accord- 

ing to the weather outside and 
the type of art on show, while 
smaller, lower galleries buried 
in the middle of the building 
house watercolours and other 
more delicate works. 

- The variation of floor-level 
allows works of all sizes to be 
shown, ranging up to the 
gigantic pieces (mostly Ameri- 
can) in the lowest galleries, but 
placed ai the bottom of the 
main staircases so that you 
have an airy awareness of the 
building's full height towering 
above them. The architects do 
not seem to have been so 
successful in solving the prob- 
lems of traffic-flow: certainly 
not when the building is as full 
or people as it was the first 
week. Much of the exhibition 
space is divided up into dead- 
end sections, so that people 
coming clash awkwardly with 
people going, and many seem 
quite disorientated.

Tuesday’s Child 
Stratford East 

As Dave Allen has dem- 
onstrated. to mock the foibles 
of the Roman Catholic faith is 
lo find a ready audience, 
among (presumably) those' 
who suffered it in childhood. 
All a stage priest has to do in 
order to raise a laugh is to 
exclaim “JaysusT’. Tuesday’s 
Child, by Terry Johnson and 
Kate Lock, leans heavily on 
this convention without ach- 
ieving much beyond a sort of 
farce manque. 

The priest in question is a 
youngish man ministering to 
the souls of a small town in 
Eire — the country where 
beleaguered Catholicism has 
a (tempted to revive the age of 
miracles in the form of mov- 
ing statues. Father Doyle’s 
doubts extend beyond such 
novelties to strike at the very 
heart of Mariolatiy: hisSSriew-

Wait Til You See 


After her triumph at the 
Don mar Warehouse last June 
— transformed overnight from 
a New York cult figure little 
known here into a goddess for 
us all — Barbara Cook has lost 
no lime in reluming for an 
official West End debut. 
Those who missed her last 
lime can now verily the 
legend. Wait Til You See Her 
is an expanded version of the 
same show, featuring Cook at 
full stretch in partnership with 
her stupendous accompanist. 
Wally Harper, and a bass 
guitarist. John BeaL who also 
does eye-popping things on 
the tuba. 

In one respect, the expan- 
sion is for the worse. At the 
Warehouse. Cook simply 
stood up and sang. At the 
Albery. rather taken by all the 
gilt and pretty little shaded 
lights, she feels moved to pay 
breathless compliments to 
British tradition and then 
embark on a siring of limp, 
name-dropping anecdotes. As 
she is a finer artist than most 
of the stars she mentions 
(“And who just happened to 
be standing there? Marlene 
Dictrichr*) I do not see why 
she should fcci called on to 
ingratiate herself in this self- 
belittling manner — if only for 
the reason that it lakes up time 
she might have spent singing. 

As for the real business of 
the evening she starts with

two barnstorming numbers as 
if in doubt ofher ability to fill 
the space, then gets into her 
stride with Gershwin's “The 
Man I Love", a strand of 
gentle, fastidious sound that I 
penetrates every crevice of the 
building and establishes her 
power to define singing as an 
ideal form of human speech. 

The repertoire extends from 
her youthful successes in 
Carousdand She Loves Me up 
to songs by Janis Ian and Mr 
Harper. The range is enor- 
mous. At one extreme there 
are tremendous jazz arrange- 
ments of “Sweet Georgia 
Brown" and Bernstein's “I 
Can Cook Too", where singer 
and players walk a vertiginous 
rhythmic tightrope, and the 
very floor seems to be shaking 
under your feet. At the other, 
the partners settle for extreme 
modesty: simple chordal 
accompaniment and a voice of 
great purity, turning and 
piercing like a blade in the 
light and extracting every 
nuance of react and longing 
from songs like Rogers and 
Han’s "There Goes My 
Young Intended" or Janis 
Ian's “Star" where, if any- 
where in programme, you 
sense a personal sub-text 
breaking through the irregular 
lines and sclf-com foiling 

As before. Mr Harper makes 
her work for her stardom: any 
lesser performer would be 
eclipsed by an accompani- 
ment of such steel-fingered 
brilliance and sheer musical 

baritone Richard Suart boldly 
but with an edge of tension in 
his upper register. “Schlechtcr

But the conspicuously un- 
funny Comedy Overture : Op 
38, was far less stimulating 
material, as was the Tanr- 
waker. Op 53 (which also 
appears in Doktor Faust). 
Both works suffer from squar- 
ish phrasing and a melodic 
invention that often seems 
stiff, though there were some 
crunching harmonies to be 
heard in the former. McIntosh 
rather ambitiously tackled the 
torrents of notes in the solo 
part of the Indian Fantasy for 
piano and orchestra. Op 44. 
himself. Nobody, though, 
could have made this ram- 
bling piece, which is based 
upon North American Indian 
songs but depends also upon a 
rather Lisztian variety of 
exoticism, sound anything 
more than weird.

Now. inevitably, she is preg- 
nant. though still intact. 

It was around this point that 
the BBC television version of 
the piece ended. Mike Brad- 
well's stage production contin- 
ues the story into the kitchen 
of the old folks' home over the 
ensuing months, with coach- 
loads of orphans waiting out- 
side for the virgin’s bene- 
diction. and wiih the Press 
barging in on domestic im- 
broglios. This provides the 
setting for jokes about “some- 
thing in the oven'* and for 
Teresa's mother first to launch 
an operatic wail of woe at the 
terrible news and later to 
mastermind her daughter's 
growing celebrity. 

Eileen Atkins attacks this 
gorgon's role with great relish, 
and the co-author Kale Lock 
is agreeably winsome as Te- 
resa. Michael Angelis seems 
miscast as Doyle, though Da- 
vid Blake Kelly works hard at 
the rotes of a senile priest and 
later as his son. Chris Jury as 
Teresa's brother has a curi- 
ously Australian accent.

Disaster Rescuers tackle Paris bomb aftermath

The mine was visited yes-

Mineral and Energy Affairs, 
Mr Danie Sieyn. who prom- 
ised a “full and thorough 
investigation" and by Mr 
Ramaphosa, who spent three 
hours underground in the 
stricken No 2 shaft where the 
disaster occurred. 

Mr Ramaphosa said after- 
wards that he had been able to 
establish that a welder, whose 
acetylene cylinder is thought 
to have caught fire, was not 
equipped with a fire extin- 
guisher. This seemed “irregu-

Mr Olivier agreed it would 
be normal practice for a 
welder to be equipped with an 
extinguisher, but could not say 
whether he had been in this 
case. The matter was being 
investigated by the gov- 
ernment's mining engineer 
and was "sub judice”. 

According to Mr Olivier, 
the disaster started when an 
acetylene gas cylinder being 
used to weld a broken rail used 
by the ore trucks “started 
burning". This in turn set fire , 
to PVC-sheathed cables and 
rubber pipes which gave off 
poisonous fumes. 

A poly-urethane substance 
used to coat the side-walls and 
ceiling of the “cross-cut 
tunnel", linking the No 1 and 
No 2 shafts, where the welding 
operation was being carried 
out, also caught fire and 
released poisonous fumes. 

He disclosed, under quest- 
ioning, that the mine bad lost 
two of its five safety stars “at 
the last audit by the Chamber 
of Mines, when certain ele- 
ments in the International 
Safety Rating System were; 
rated below the required 
percentage". He claimed 
safety levels at the mine in 
general were “very good". !

African gold mines, the vast 
majority of black miners are !

lands, or in a neighbouring

NatWest aims to 
be first with 
US share issue 

By Richard Thomson, Hawking Correspondent 

National Westminster Bank 
yesterday applied to the 
American authorities Ah* a 
listing on the New York stock 
market and permission to 
issue shares, worth around 
£121 million, which would 
make it the first foreign hank 
to issue equity securities in the 

The application follows the 
New York listing gained by 
Barclays Bank a week ago, but 
NatWest is going a step fur- 
ther by issuing shares. The 
move depends on the agree- 
ment of shareholders at an 
exuaodinary general meeting 
on October 14 and on per- 
mission from the US Securi- 
ties & Exchange Commission, 
expected within a month. 

The new shares will be 
equivalent to 33 per cent of 
the bank's issued ordinary 
share capital and will take 
shareholders' equity and re- 
serves to £4.03 billion. 

The move ruses specula- 
tion that NatWest is arming to 
make an acquisition in the US 
in the near future. When the 
bank raised £714 million 
through a rights issue last 
May, it hinted tha t an ac- 
quisition was possible. 

In a letter to shareholders, 
Lord Boardman. the NatWest 
chairman, said the listing and 
issue were designed to en- 
hance the bank's standing in 
international capital markets 
and to attract a wider investor 
base. NatWest also plans to 
apply for a share listing in 
Tokyo. So for Barclays is the 
only UK bank with a listing on 
both New York and Tokyo 
stock exchanges. 

Lord Boar d man said the 
listing was an important 
development in the manage- 
ment of the bank's capital 
resources. He said; “The net 
proceeds of this issue will 
strengthen further the bank's 
equity base and will provide 
additional funds for its long- 
term strategy of international 
growth". Growth might be 
achieved by developing exist- 
ing operations, establishing 
new subsidiaries or through 
acquisitions, he added. 

Like Barclays, NatWest is 
keen to establish 24-hour deal- 
ing in its shares and to gain an 
international familiarity with 
its shares which would enable 
it to raise capital on foreign 
equity markets. 

NatWest's US operations 

include the successful retail 
banking venture. NatWest 
USA, which made profits of 
$80 million last year. It has 
also become the first commer- 
cial bank to combine securi- 
ties brokerage and investment 
advice when County Securi- 
ties Corp was granted a US 
licence in June. The group also 
has a wholesale banking op- 
eration in the US. 

The group’s equity as well 
as the newly issued shares will 
be quoted in New York in the 
form of American Depository 
Shares, the normal method of 
trading foreign shares in the 
US. An ADS is the tradable 
instrument backing American 
Depository Receipts. Since 
shares prices in New York 
generally have a higher value 
than in London, each ADS 
will equal three NatWest or- 
dinary shares. At the present 
London price of 542p, each 
NatWest ADS would be worth 
about $24. 

The group is applying to 
issue a maximum of 24.1 
million new ordinary shares in 
ADS form in New York, 
though it intends to issue 
closer to 21 million initially at 
the equivalent of the prevail- 
ing market price in London. 

ban on five 

By David Smith 
Economics Correspondent 

Five members of the Inter- 
national Monetary Fund are 
now ineligible for further 
borrowing, according to the 
IMF annual report, published 

The five — Peru, Liberia. 
Sudan, Vietnam and Guyana 
— have fallen behind on 
repayments to the IMF. 

Overdue obligations from 
these countries, plus another 
three not yet declared ineli- 
gible. totalled SDR482 million 
($580 million) at the end of 
the fund's 1985-86 financial 

Countries declared ineli- 
gible remain IMF members 
but they are not entitled to use 
its general resources. 

Drawings from the IMF fell 
to SDR 3.9 billion ($4.7 
billion) in 1985-86 from 
SDR6.1 billion ($7.3 billion) 
in 1984-85. The decline, 
according to the annual re- 
port, was because of the 
progress made by some debtor 
countries in strengthening 
their balance of payments and 
reserve positions. ■ 
Outstanding fund credit fell 
from SDR34.9 billion at the 
end of 1984-85 to SDR34.6 
billion at the end of 1985-86. 

The report said that closer 
co-operation between the IMF 
and the World Bank, which 
will be a key topic at the 
annual joint meetings of the 
two organizations in Wash- 
ington at the end of the 
month, was already taking 

Last year there were more 
joint IMF- World Bank mis- 
sions to countries, while dose 
collaboration between the two 
bodies was required for ibe 
SDR2.7 billion structural 
adjustment facility. 

The IMF has enhanced its 
surveillance of member 
countries’ economic policies 
and performance and, in 
particular, is paying more 
regard to the medium-term 
policy framework. The inter- 
action of policies between the 
major economies is also 
attracting greater IMF

Rules for Big Bang 
‘wiU hit exports’ 

By David Young 

Britain's industrialists have 
warned the Government that 
much of their day-to-day op- 
erations and efforts to boost 
export business will be ham- 
pered by the new rulesgovem- 
ing operations in the City after 
the October 27 Big Bang. 

The Confederation of Brit- 
ish Industry said yesterday 
that it accepts that activity in 
the City needs to be brought 
under control. However, its 
members have discovered 
that much of the legislation 
will also affect industrial 

Mr Michael Howard, the 
minister responsible for the 
legislation at the Department 
of Trade and Industry, has 
discussed the matter with CBI 
leaders and agreed to consider 
excluding certain activities of 
industrial and commercial 
companies from the Financial 
Services BilL 

The CBI will press the 
Government to make further 
amendments to the Bill as it 
passes through the House of 
Lords in the next few weeks. 

The CBI has found the 
legislation will affect a 
company’s ability to carry out 
tasks such as providing (nidg- 
ing loans for employees trans- 
ferred from one area to 

Mr David Nickson. the CBI 
president, said yesterday: 
**The Bill is fundamentally 
unsatisfactory in its applica- 
tion to companies and pres- 
sure from CBI members has 
been building up for radical 
amendments to be made.” 

Some of the problems the 
CBI lists are: 

• UK exporters and other 
companies trill be in a 
disavantaaeons position com- 
pared with overseas rivals as 
they will be forced to examine 
each individual transaction to 
decide whether it is covered by 
the legislation. 

• Advice given by an exporter 
to a foreign buyer on arranging 
finance for. a contract involv- 
ing the purchase of currency 
options will require the licenc- 
ing of the exporter. 

• Any company involved in a 
takeover will have to become 
licenced under die Bill to 
permit its acquisition of an- 
other company. 

• Companies will also have to 
be licenced for other dealings; 
such as advising associate 
companies on currency 

• A company receiving an 
unwelcome takeover bid 
would have to be officially 
authorized by the SIB before it 
advises its shareholders not to 
accept the offer. The same 
applies to companies agreeing 
to a merger. 

The CBI added that thou- 
sands of firms could risk 
committing a criminal offence 
unless they take the precau- 
tion of becoming licenced by 
the SIB to give investment 
advice in the same way as 
stock-brokers and other 
securities dealers. 

Mr Nickson said last night* 
“It is vital that Government 
should act quickly to remove 
this nonsense.”

Stores of confidence: Sir Kenneth Durham, chairman of Woolworth Holdings yesterday (Photograph: John Manning), 

Comet leads Woolworth surge 

By Alexandra Jackson 

The cost of fighting off the 
unwelcome bid from Dixons in 
July cost Woolworth Holdings 
£15.9 million. This was 
treated as an extraordinary 
item in the 1986/87 first-half 

Pretax profits from Wool- 
worth for the she months 
through to the beginning of 
August amounted to £23.2 
milli on, This was considerably 

ahead of last year's restated 
£11 million. 

Turnover increased from 
£769.4 million to £8I4U> mil- 
lion. The dividend was in- 
creased from 3p to Sp. 

The chairman. Sir Kenneth 
Durham, remains confident 
that the group will meet the 
£105.5 million profit forecast 
made at the time of the Dixons 
bid. (43.7p of earnings). 

The most marked improve- 
ment from the divisions came 

from Comet, where profits 
quadrupled to £3-2 million

levels out

Economics Correspondent 

Industrial output in Britain 
is flat despite an erratic rise in 
production in July, officials 

Industrial production 
jumped by 3.4 per cent on the 
month, while manufacturing 
output rose by 0.9 per cent. 

The sharp rise in July was 
because of a recovery in North 
Sea oil output from its de- 
pressed June level where it 
was affected by platform re- 
pairs. Oil output rose by 18 
per cent in July. 

Manufacturing production 
was lifted by a rise in chemi- 
cals and, surprisingly in view 
of the poor summer weather, a 
big increase in beer 

Id the latest three months, 
regarded as the best guide to 
the underlying trend, manu- 
facturing output rose by just 
0.2 per cent compared with 
the previous three months, 
while all industrial output was 
down by 1.4 per cent. 

Compared with the 
corresponding period of last 
year, industrial output was 
broadly unchanged, while 
manufacturing output was 
down by 0.5 per cenL 
Officials said that industrial 
production is flat Manufac- 
turing reached a peak in the 
second quarter of last year and 
then fell but it has been flat 
for most of this year. 

For individual industries in 
the latest three months, 
production of metals was up 
by 4 per cent and output of| 
petroleum products and mo- 
tor vehicles each rose by 3 per 
cent But motor vehicle out- 
put was down by 6 percent on 
last year despite this year’s 
record new car sales. 

Electrical engineering, 
including the computer in- 
dustry, was doing badly. In the 
latest three months produc- 
tion was flat, and 5 per cent 
down on a year ago. 

Energy and water supply fell 
by 5 per cent in the latest three 
months, but was 1.5 per cent 
up on a year ago. 

Clark warns Gatt 
over protectionism 

From Bailey Morris Punta del Este, Uruguay. 

Britain and other countries the US and Japan formed a 

would suffer more hardship 
now than during the Great 
Depression if the world trad- 
ing system collapsed under a 
flood of protectionist actions, 
Mr Alan Clark, the Minister of 
Trade, told fellow trade min- 
isters at the Gatt talks yes- 

Mr Clark said Britain's 
dependence on trade was now 
for greater than it was in the 
1930s, amounting to more 
than one third of total na- 
tional output. He called for a- 
new negotiations that would 
cover areas such as trade in 
the fast-growing service 

Mr Clark made his remarks 
to member countries of Gatt 
(the General Agreement on 
Tariffs and Trade) on a day in 
which sharp differences arose 
within the European Eco- 
nomic Community over 

There were also feats that 
the EEC was becoming 
increasingly isolated among 
the largest trading nations, as 

strong alliance. 

A senior EEC official said 
the growing lies between the 
US and Japan, including the 
trend to cartelize whole sec- 
tors such as semi-conductors, 
was the prelude to “a whole lot 
of bilateral deals” between the 
economic superpowers. • 

Concern over the US-Japan 
alliance arose over a proposal 
by the EEC. with the strong 
backing of Britain, that would 
include a demand m the final 
communique to balance bene- 
fits in trade. This would 
correct the huge economic 
imbalances in the world econ- 
omy, notably Japan's record 

Japan, with the strong back- 
ing of the US is fighting this 
proposal which it described as 
discriminatory. But European 
officials said there was no 
specific mention of any coun- 
try in the proposed wording 
which was meant to ensure 
that there would be a trade 
balance among countries in 
the critical years ahead.

Foreign shares problem for 
new-style Stock Exchange 

The Securities and Invest- 
ments Board, die investor 
protection watchdog, has 
agreed to extend the time for 
the intended International 
Stock Exchange to bring its 
trade reporting systems into 
line with the SlB’s 

The SIB is expected to 
require market-makers in 
nities. trading od a Recognh 
Investment Exchange (RIEL 
to report and publish details of 
every trade. However, the SIB 
has accepted that there is 
insufficient time before the 
financial services legislation 
becomes operational next year 
to develop the technology to 
report and publish all 3£00 or 
so foreign eqnfties fikely to be 
traded within the new Stock 
Exchange-ISRO R1E. 

There are suggestions 
emerging from informal dis- 
cussions held between the SIB 
and members of the Inter- 

By Lawrence Lever 

national Securities Regulatory 
Organization (ISRO), that the 
SIB will not require foil details 
of trades in all foreign equities 
to be displayed and published. 

Mr Ian Steers, the ISRO 
chairman, said yesterd a y that 
there , were “sheer limitations 
of time” which would prevent' 
the new body from being ready 
in timg- 

“We will need a kind of son- 
of-SEAQ” he said, referring 
to the Stock Exchange Auto- 
mated Quotation system, die 
new price display system 
which will be used after big 
bang on October 27. 

Mr Steven Raven, the chair- 
man of the Stock Exchange’s 
International Markets 
Committee, said the Stock 
Exchange's SEAQ Inter- 
national system, a two-year 
pDot scheme which already 
displays prices in a limited 
number of mainly American 
stocks, “would become the . 

basis of onr thinking". 

It is not yet certain whether 
the SIB wifi require frill 
screen-based display of all 
foreign equities traded on an 
off-exchange basis in London. 
Mr Andrew Large, chief exec- 
utive and deputy chairman of 
Swiss Bank Corporation, and 
. a member of die joint Stock 
Exchange-ISRO working 
party, said yesterday that for 
many of these foreign equities 
there could hardly be said to 
be an active market-making 

“No one really knows bow 
many foreign stocks are dealt 
with here,” he said. ‘‘There 
could be even more than 3500. 
I think there could well be less 
comprehensive systems for 
those stocks that are less 
highly dealt in. The SIB is 
really looking at the core of 
broadly traded stocks, and will 
want to ensure there is ade- 
quate investor protection.”

lifts profit 

By Onr City Staff 

Growth in sales of products 
with higher profit margins 
helped MG Cadi and Cany to 
increase operating profit to 
£41 1,000 in the 2§ weeks to 
July 12, compared with 
£371,000 a year earlier. 

Turnover, meanwhile, 
dropped slightly to £30.15 
million from £30.41 million. 
The interim dividend of 1.06p 
is payable on November 3. 

The growth in sales of 
higher margin products such 
as furniture, non-foods and 
alcoholic drinks has com- 
pensated for reductions in 
groceries and provisions. 

An exceptional stock pro- 
vision of £100,000 was made 
against a certain range of toys 
in the first half of 1985. A 
satisfactory arrangement has 
been made with the supplier 
and the stock disposed of, 
resulting in an exceptional 
credit of £53.000. 

Kellock quote

The shares in Mr Nick

have been suspended after the 
company confirmed reports 
that it was likely to be taken 
over by London & Edinburgh 
Trust, the fast-growing prop- 
erty group run by brothers Mr 
John Beckwith and Mr Peter 

If talks are successful, LET

reverse its financial services 
interests into the company. 
That will be followed by a 
general offer for Kellock and a 
capital reorganization, includ- 
ing a five-for-one share-split. 

LET intends to maintain a

factoring group, after the deals 
are completed. 

UK taxes ‘on a par 
with average 
of Western world’ 

By David Smith 

Economics Correspondent 

Britain is not a high tax 
country, according to the lat- 
est comparative figures from 
the Organization for Eco- 
nomic Co-operation and 
Development in Paris. 

In the annual league table 
drawn up by the OECD, 
Britain occupies a middle 
position, with lax revenues 
accounting for just above 38 
per cent of national income. 

Britain's figure is well below 
the Scandinavian countries, 
ail with lax revenues of dose 
to 50 per cent of national 
income. It is roughly die same 
as West Germany, but well 
above Japan and the US. 

The average for the Western 
industrialized countries which 
make up the OECD is for total 
taxation of around 37 per cent 
of national income. 

The OECD's Revenue 
Statistics also show what types 
of taxation are used. In a 
comparison of tax receipts in 
1984. the report shows that in 
Britain 38.2 per cent of tax- 
ation is on income and com- 
pany profits, although to this 
can be added the other direct 
form of personal taxation, 
national insurance, which ac- 
counts for a further 18.1 per 

Indirect taxation — value- 
added tax and excise dudes — 
provided 30.5 per cent of total 
tax receipts, while the remain- 
ing 12.2 per cent came from 
property taxes. 

The figures suggest that the 
balance between direct tax- 
ation, those on income and 
profits, and indirect, those on

spending, is not badly wrong 
in Britain, It has been an aim 
of this Government to tflt the 
burden in favour of more 
indirect taxation. 

In the US, income, profits 
and soda! security taxes ac- 
counted for 71.S per cent of 
federal revenues, compared 
with 18.2 per cent for taxes on 
goods and services. The 
comparison is, however, com- 
plicated by the incidence of 
state indirect taxation. 

Even so, in Japan only 15 
per cent of tax revenues are 
from the spending taxes, while 
in West Germany the figure is 
27 percent. 

In several countries, includ- 
ing the Scandinavian coun- 
tries and Spain, direct taxation 
accounts for aboul70 per cent 
of total revenues. 

Twenty years ago, in the 
OECD countries, tax revenues 
were equivalent to about 27 
per cent of national income. 

Ten years later, the figure had 
increased to 33 per cent The 
latest complete figure, for 
1984, is more than 37 percent. 

In Britain, the latest es- 
timate of the tax burden, 38.58 
per cent of national income 
last year, is an increase on the 
two previous years, but is not 
the highest level ever. In 1982, 
tax revenues were equivalent 
to 3937 per cent. 

In the mid-1960s, tax rev- 
enues were equal to just above 
30 per cent. 

The US is the only im- 
portant economy to have 
achieved a reversal in the 
rising taxation trend. Its tax as 
a proportion of national in- 
come has fallen continuously 
over the past three years as a 
result of President Reagan's 
tax cuts. The ratio of tax to 
national income, 28.99 per 
cent in 1984, is only 2.7 
percentage points higher than 
its level 20 years earlier. 

in cider 

By Derek Harris 
Industrial Editor 

Britain’s three million cider 
drinkers are raising their 
glasses at a greater rate this 
year after a near 4 per cent 
drop in consumption in 1985. 

Since 1974 and discounting 
the setback in 1985, rider has 
■seen annual sales increases of 
between 10 per cent and 20 per 
cent in contrast to beer where 
sales overall have declined. 
Only lager beets have in- 
creased their sales. 

Oder sales so far this year 
are up one per cent and there is 
a prospect that by the year end 
sales will be up by about 2 per 
cent, according to Mr Gray 
OUirer, jna/keth p* director ®f 
Showering*, the Allled-Lyons 

Mr OUirer was speaking at 
a cider survey held recently. 
The Showering* survey was 
the first of what will become a 
regular event looking at the 
market overalL Cider is a key 
nurfcpt worth £375 nJIBwi a 
year in sales, which me a ns 
spending is about equal to 
cognac and brandy. 

The improvement in dder 
safes this year has depended 
on a number of factors, one of 
them being better summer 
weather. No additional Budget 
taxation, less promotional 
activity by lager makers and 
increased advertising spend- 
ing by dder manufacturers 
were all thought to contribute 
to the sales rise for dder. 

It is estimated that Allied- 
Lyoas, Bnlmers and Taunton 
Coler, the big three dder 
makers, have spent about £10 
minion on consumer advertis- 
ing this summer. This almost 
doubles the amount spent over 
the same period last year.

pays dividends 


The Group pre-tax profit for the half year at £47.6m 
is 31% higher than for the same period last year 
The reduced interest charge, resulting from the 
proceeds of the rights issue in April 1985 and from 
lower interest rates, benefited the pre-tax profit 
by £5.7m. 

Trading profit showed a very satisfactory 
increase of £5.6m to £53.9m (+12%) and, had the 
dollar been at the same average exchange rate as 
in 1985, it would have benefited by an additional 
£4.1m to show an increase of 20%. 

The highlight pf the half year's results has 
been the excellent profit performance by Keebler 
which, in dollar terms, exceeded last year by 48%. 

This achievement, together with the profit from the 
Early California Olive business acquired in October 
1985, represents the major contribution to the 
trading profit increase. 

While trading profit should show a similar 
percentage increase, the second half year will not 
benefit to the same extent from a reduction in the 
interest charge. As a result we do not anticipate pre- 
tax profits rising by the same percentage as in the 
first half.

Elders emerges as favourite 
to bid for Courage brewery 

By Michael Clark and Carol Leonard 

iS * 


• Ci 


Lord Hanson will announce 
today the sale of Ms Courage 
public bouses and brewing 
group in a £1.4 billion deal. 

. News of the deal win Ming 
to an end weeks of speculation 
as to who would be the 
eventual buyer of Courage, 
acquired by Hanson Trust 
earlier this year as part of the 
£2.8 billion imperial package. 

Front-runner in the Cour- 
age auction is the Australian 
Mr John Elliott of Elders JXL.

Lasmo held steady at !18p. 

offers - from the US drinks 
group Anheuser-Busch, best 
known for its Budweiser beer 
and Mr Alan Bond, the 
Australian entrepreneur. 

The sale of Courage will 
give Lord Hanson some £3 
billion of cash in hand — he 
raised £1 billion from the sale 
of SCM in America and a 
further £500,000 from other 
disposals — and will enable 
him to make another sizeable 
acquisition, without going 
back on assurances to the City 
that he will not issue any more 
Hanson paper for the rest of 
the year. 

. This fresh cash injection 
will bring Hanson Trnsfs 
gearing down from 70 per cent 
to about (5 per cent and, 
together with the soon-to-be- 
issued American Depositary 
Receipts, will pave the way for 


an acquisition of about £2 
billion. Most analysts think 
Lord Hanson will make bis 
next move in the US. 

Hanson's shares firmed 3p 
to 193p. 

The news, if confirmed, will 
have a bad effect on Allied 
Lyons shares, where EHiou 
had been expected to return to 
the bid fray. Yesterday 
AUied's shares were 8p higher 
at 333p. 

Dealers were looking a little 
more relaxed following the 
sharp fluctuations on world

tempts at bear-dosing by US 
arbitragers enabled the FT

COMMENT Kenneth Fleet 

United Biscuits still 
seeks quantum leap 

Sir Hector Laing’s grand plan of 
merging with Imperial to feed the 
Third World may have foiled, but 
United Biscuits is doing a creditable 
job of feeding mouths in the Western 
world with an ever-increasing assort- 
ment of crisps, nuts, snacks and, of 
course, biscuits. 

Yesterday’s interim figures, which 
showed a 31 per cent increase in 
taxable profits to £47.6 million, have 
laid to rest some of the allegations 
made during the battle with Hanson 
Trust for Imperial and proved that 
UB can manage very nicely on its own 
— though that is not the end of the 
story. The quantum leap through a 
major acquisition is still a gleam in Sir 
Hector's eye; the problem is that 
Imperial was a unique opportunity. 

While surveying the scene, foreign 
and domestic but especially the 
United States, for signicant ac- 
quisitions, it is important for UB to 
perform well and sharpen the 
company's image among influential 
investing institutions. 

It has got away to a good start. Far 
from losing the soft centre cookie war 
in the United States, UB has won it 
hands down. Its American subsidiary, 
Keebler, has emerged as maricet leader 
with 32 per cent share, ahead of 
mighty Procter & Gamble in second 
place. P&G, ironically, is the market's 
favourite to bid for UB. Keebler has 
crossed the Rockies to supply west 
coast America for the first time and is 
expanding rapidly in the savoury 
snacks market, where it intends to be 
the second largest player — behind the 
dominant Frit-O-Lay, which is part of 

At home KP crisps and nuts 
increased their market share, aided by 
industrial troubles at the rival Golden 
Wonder. Biscuit profits rose by 4 per 
cent in a slightly declining market. 

UB is in good financial as well as 
trading shape. Last year's £98 million 
rights issue has been applied to UK 
borrowings. Group gearing is down to 
36 per cent from 50 per cent a year ago 
and will fall to 27 per cent by the year 
end. For the first time in many years, 
UB is strongly cash positive. 

Capital spending is being main- 
tained at high levels with about £124 
million earmarked for this year 
compared with £100 million last. The 
advertising budget is rising by £8 
million this year. 

Pickings from Imperial — Sir Hec- 
tor would dearly like Ross Foods — 
are unlikely to materialize. Hanson 
seems intent on keeping tbe tobacco 
and food businesses, but .food, busi- 
nesses should be available from large 
conglomerates unwinding businesses 
they have decided no longer fit 

The Laing influence in UB remains 
paramount the family is the largest 
single shareholder and Sir Hector, 

himself the dominate influence in the 
company's thinking and thus iis 
development intends to stay at the 

helm for another five years. 

He has taken in, though with some 
scepticism, the importance of 
communicating regularly with 
shareholders, especially fund man- 
agers, but he is still inclined to dismiss 
short-term performance as no more 
than the product of buying and selling 
businesses and playing about with 
balance sheets and profit and loss 

He will continue to hammer home 
the corporate message of taking the 
long-term view, investing for the 
future and increasing market share to 
insure that there are jobs available for 
the next generation. 

That thinking, which is estimable, 
should not take him away from other 
realities in building a business. 

Sterling needs help 

The twin targets of the dollar reaching 
DM2 and the pound falling to DM3 
have been in the foreign exchange 
dealers' sights since they decided that 
the yen had been pushed as far as the 
Japanese government would allow 
and switched their attention to the 
German currency. 

Most would have bet on the dollar 
benchmark being tested first — es- 
pecially after the Bundesbank sold 
dollars last Friday. Yet even on a day 
of dollar weakness yesterday, sterling 
was the first to go. Smoothing 
operations by the Bank of England did 
little to stop the steady rot. 

Whatever the Bank of England's 
informal and confidential trigger 
points for action to support sterling, it 
is safe to say that any fall in the 
sterling index below 70 would ring 
violent alarm bells and it only just 
managed to avoid that yesterday. 

It is fair to say that sterling's latest 
humiliation was more a reflection of a 
strong mark than of any disastrous 
new developments for the generally 
weak pound. The German currency 
was fortified by the Bundesbank 
president. Karl Otto Poehl, who 
confirmed his less than surprising 
intention not to relax monetary policy 
ahead of the Group of Five meeting 
and the IMF annual meeting. 

Soothing smoothing was more 
appropriate than strong intervention 
by the Bank of England. The feet 
remains that sterling is still the only 
meaningful monetary indicator and is 
not looking good.. .. 

Thfrpoint of bolstering the bfeserves 
*y $4 bfitfon through floating rate 
notes was to give the Bank the option 
Of supporting sterling in the markets 
rather than by raising interest rates in 
front of the British Gas flotation (let 
alone an election). The option may 
soon have to be taken.

Abbott Mead Vlckere. the 
advertising agency, yesterday 
announced a 1 1 2 per cent leap 
in profits in its first set of half 
year figures since it became a 
public company in Novem- 

Pretax profits for the six 
months to June 30 were £ 1 .06 
million compared with 
£502.000 in the corresponding 
period. Gross billings were 
£24.7 million against £19.2 

The company has increased 
earnings per share by 125 per 
cent — from 2.32p to 5.2 Ip — 
and is paying as interim 
dividend of 1.5p per share. 

Mr David Abbott, chair- 
man of Abbott Mead, which 
recently took over the Leagus 




Bemrose Corporation, the 
printing group, has trebled its 
interim dividend to 3p after 
returning to profitability. Pre- 
tax profit in the six months to 
June 28 was £707,000, against 
a loss of £728,000 a year 

Turnover was £1 8-2 1 mil- 
lion, down from £30.40 mil- 
lion and operating profit rose 
to £829.000 from £619,000. 
Interest payments fell to 
£132.000 from £827,000. 

The board says it expects 
results for the remainder of 
the year to continue the 
improvement shown in the' 
second half of last year and the 
first half of this year. 

The company is budding a 
strong group of related Ameri- 
can businesses, whileseeking 
growth in Britain — in security 
and specialist printing and in 
advertising, promotional and 
retail products. 

By Lawrence Lever 

Delaney Partnership, a rival 
advertising agency, said that 
there h3d been no fell out of 
clients from Leagus since the 
deal was announced in June. 

Acquisitive advertising 
agencies have recently found 
their hunger blunted when 
clients of acquired agencies 
desert the agencies because of 
potential conflicts of interest 

The Leagus client list in- 
cludes the Nationwide Build- 
ing Society and Allied Lyons, 
while Abbott Mead acts for 
the Leeds Permanent Building 
Society and Watney Mann & 
Truman. Leagus and Abbott 
Mead are, however, to be run 
as separate companies operat- 
ing at arms length, Mr Abbott 
said yesterday. 

Hargreaves hits back 
at ‘unfair’ Coalite bid 

By Teresa Poole 

The board of Hargreaves that the 
Group, the fuel, transport and fit togt 
quarrying company which is quarryu 
fighting off a £80.1 million bid as activ 

from Coalite, yesterday told 
shareholders that the offer was 
unfair and that it totally 
ignored benefits still to come 
In the company's defence 
document, Mr John _ Wood, 
chairman, said Coalite had 
made a poor offer of a “partial 
and quite inadequate share in 
a group which would be 
controlled by a company 
whose managerial and finan- 
cial record is much inferior, 
Hargreaves does not accept 

that the two businesses would 
fit together and points to 
quarrying and waste collection 
as activities in which Coalite 
has no comparable businesses. 
Coalite is also accused of a 
dramatic lade of investment 
which has resulted in the 
company's £80 m ill inn cash 

After the bid, Hargreaves 
said it had received ap- 
proaches from, among others. 
Ocean Transport and Trading, 
but Mr Brian Cooper, assis- 
tant managing director, said 
Hargreaves* intention was to 
remain independent. 

Local London for USM 

Brothers Robert and Gra- 
ham Bourne are bringing their 
office development company. 
Local London Group, to the 
Unlisted Securities Market 
with a price tag of £6.6 
million. Just under 40 percent 

of the business is being placed 
at 135pashare. 

Local London converts 
pro p e rti es into centres for 
small businesses. It has raised 
pretax profits from £27,000 in 
1981 to £613,000 last year. 

Brighter news, despite 
stormy start to the year. 

Despite the many severe storm and burst pipe 
claims we faced in the UK early in die year the first 
half of 1986 has been brighter 

Although the total cost of diese Jjr 
claims was some £8 million much of m ^ 
tliis was absorbed by increased^^H 
premium rates, and die world- 
wide loss on short-term busi- m 
ness has been reduced from 
£13m to £2.7m. ^ j 

New life annual premiums rose to new* W Q 
levels, helped by the buoyant endowment 
mortgage market in die UK Single premiums W 
from our innovative capital transfer tax planning 
contract fell due to changes in the Budget, but diere 
was an encouraging increase in other investment- 
related contracts. 

The net profit from UK life and pensions 
business increased to £l"9m ( £l6.1m ). 

In local currency terms long term profits 
from international operations improved but 
movements in sterling on foreign 
exchange markets led to a slight 
fall in reported profits. 

Overall there 
was a jump of 52 
per cent to £28.**m in the 
Group's worldwide pre-tax profits. 

And die interim dividend payable on 1 December 
has been lifted to 3.25p.

General j 


Abbott Mead has picked up 
three new clients in the half 
year. These indude the Daily 
Telegraph account — the com- 
pany is handling the 
newspaper's relaunch — and 
the London Commodities Ex- 
change. It bad “parted 
company** with Arthur Ander- 
son , the accountant 

Abbott Mead has also 
gained new assignments for 
existing clients. Among these 
is Smith Crisps' “Sweet and 
Sour Pork Flavoured Fries” 

Mr Michael Baulk, former 
managing director of Olgivy 
and Mather's London opera- 
tions, has joined the main 
board of Abbott Mead, and he 
will be chief executive of one 
of its subsidiaries. 

Confident W oolworth 
should beat forecast 

Worries that Woolworth 
Holdings would be slow to 
show its form post the 
Dixons' bid should be 

First half profits more than 
doubled, and they were well 
ahead of market expecta- 
tions. The replenished 
management team at Wool- 
worth is in fighting form and 
remains confident that it will 
meet the profit forecast made 
at the time of the bid. 

There was some concern 
last year that the bubbling do- 
it-yourself market had gone 
off the boil but B and Q's first 
half figures show the business 
back on the growth tack. 
Underlying sales improved 
by 7 per cent while total 
turnover rose by 29 per cent 

Maintaining a position as 
market leader is an expensive 
performance. The sum of £95 
million has been earmarked 
for this year's store opening 

B and Q believes that there 
is still usefiil growth in the 
£7.5 billion home improve- 
ment market. ‘ It is 
maximising its opportunities 
at the heavy end of the 
industry (trade related) and it 
is also looking for growth 
from Homecentres and 

Comet's past formula was 
successful but it has lost its 
competitive edge. The injec- 
tion of new management 
some of which, ironically, 
came from Dixons, should 
sharpen it up considerably. 

The key to Woohworth’s 
future is still the high street 
chain. The “Focus” strategy, 
concentrating on a narrow 
range of product areas, has 
already led to a 4 percentage 
point improvement in gross 

It is early days yet, and the 
full range of new mer- 
chandise will not be put in the 
150 or so refurbished stores 
until the spring. Sales a 
square foot could improve 
over several years from £130 
to nearer £200. 

Woolworth will still have 
to hold its own against the 
competing companies, many 
of which are also having a 
face lift 

The balance sheet looks 
good, but perhaps a change of 
treatment of the £700 million 
property portfolio would pre- 
vent the group from asking 
the market for money in the 
fullness of time. 

A confident Woolworth 
should comfortably beat its 
£105.5 million forecast 
(43. 7p) by about 5 per cent. 
The shares are selling at a 
premium to the sector. This 
is unlikely to widen, how- 




JUL augsep; 

ever, until the new FWW 
stores are fully operational. 
Until then £225 million for 
1989-90 may only be a pipe- 

Minet Holdings 

Minet Holdings’ interim re- 
sults undershot market es- 
timates yesterday and the 
shares fell 14p to 233p. 

The main disappointments 
were higher-than-expected 
expenses, adverse currency 
movements and no increase 
in the interim dividend. 
Underlying brokerage growth 
was strong at 22 percent, but 
expenses registered a 23 per 
cent underlying gain. 

Staff increases have cost 
money without providing 
any benefit yet Mi net's own 
professional indemnity insur- 
ance also cost £1 million 
more in the first half The 
company hopes the steep 
rises in PI cover will now tail 

Mi net’s exposure to weak 
currencies like the rand and 
Australian dollar contributed 
to currency losses year-on- 
year of £1.5 million, offset by 
a £1 million hedging gain. 

Brokerage growth was cur- 
tailed by capacity problems. 
The move by seven top 
accountants — all Minet cli- 
ents — to set up a mutual to 
insure catastrophic PI risks is 
symptomatic of the con- 
straints. Minet is setting up 
the mutual and so will earn 
fees, but it is dearly losing 
potential brokerage. 

Full-year profit expecta- 
tions have been reduced to 
the £34 million to £35 million 
area, giving a prospective p/e 
ratio of just over 9. As usual, 
the discount to the sector is 
because of unresolved PCW

Managing and marketing

has earned the group a pre- 
mium rating Its success in 
expanding in the United 
States, to replace its less 
buoyant traditional markets 
in Africa, will ensure that it 
keeps this rating. 

Nevertheless, _ oyer- 
optimistic expectations from 
analysis caused the shares to 
be marked down 5p to S04p 
yesterday, despite the 
announcement of a 15 per 
cent increase in interim pre- 
tax profits to £66.5 million. 
Turnover for the half-year to 
July 5 was down 4 per cent to 
£636 million, mainly as a 
result of the disposal of a non- 
stratcgic US potato business. 

Oearly. the results haw 
been boosted by' having a full 
six months of Airwick profits, 
rather than only four months 
iri the comparatives. There 
will be more benefits as this 
acquisition is further ab- 
sorbed into the group- 

The group is buying the 
North American spice and 
sauce maker, Durkec Famous 
Foods, from Hanson for £96 
million with the intention of 
merging it with RT French. 
And it is spending another 
£45 million on buying out the 
minority in its Australian 

As a result. Reckitt's gear- 
ing will rise to 60 per cent at 
the year end, and will still be 
in the region of 50 per cent at 
the end of 1987. Any more 
acquisitions are therefore 
likely to be paid for with 
shares, or the company will 
be seeking more money from 

For the full year, the group 
should be able to make £145 
million* pretax, putting the 
shares on a prospective mul- 
tiple of just over 14. Over the 
last year, the shares have 
increased by 51 per cent, 
and at these levels they seem 
feiriy valued.

British investors warned 
of foreign market risks 

By Judith Huntley 

British investors keen to put 
their money in overseas prop- 
erty must be aware that it “is 
essentially a high risk busi- 
ness, with the possibility, but 
by no means the certainty, of 
high rewards” So says a 
report published by the Col- 
lege of Estate Management on 
the British experience in over- 
seas property investment from 
the 1960s to now.* 

The .report questions the 
desirability of investing in 
property overseas. It argues 
that the differences between 
foreign markets and the UK 
are such that overseas prop- 
erty can almost be regarded as 
a . separate investment me- 
dium rather than an adjunct to 
a British portfolio. 

Mr Paul Batho, author of 
the report, says: “It is there- 
fore questionable whether 
investors primarily interested 
in security and long-term 
steady growth should become 
involved in overseas property 

The British began investing 
in overseas property in earnest 
in the 1 960s with Canada and 
Australia the prime targets. 
Europe took prominence in 
the late Sixties and early 
Seventies. In both cases the 
move abroad was led by 

The second significant wave 
of investment, directed at the 
United States and spear- 
headed by the institutions. 

Station site for Sachs 

Knight Frank & Rutiey has leased the recently completed re- 
development above Blackfriars Station, London, to 
Goldman Sachs for five years. The building, owned by 
London Regional Transport, covers 28,000 sq ft 

started in the latter end of the 
Seventies and the be ginning of 
the Eighties. It arose for 
opportunistic reasons as the 
US property market was going 
through a depression at the 
time. Could the same argu- 
ments apply now? 

The attraction of investing 
overseas, one that is dismissed 
as “superficial” by the report, 
is the higher yields on offer 
abroad. But Mr Batho argues 
that these higher yields do not 
represent the naivete of local 
investors but are the result of 
sound financial reasons. Yield 
bases should not be directly

compared with the UK but 
should be judged in their local 
context, he argues. 

And he says that the pure 
risk element in overseas 
commercial property is higher 
than in the UK lor almost all 
types ■ of property. Shorter 
leases, greater tenant mobility 
and accelerated obsolescence 
add up to greater risk and the 
need- for more intensive 
management than in the UK. 

For these reasons the report 
concludes that overseas prop- 
erty can never be as secure as 
that in the UK. “While this 
may not concern the active 

investor, it is a factor that the 
longer-term institution seek- 
ing stable income and the 
possibility of growth cannot 
afford to ignore.” 

But the greater the risk, the 
greater the reward if things 
turn out well Mr Batho 
believes h is the property 
companies and developers 
rather than the institutions 
who are better equipped 
operate in such a climate. 

British property companies, 
such as the Hammerson Prop- 
erty Investment and Develop- 
ment Corporation, MEPC. 
Slough Estates and Grosvenor 
Terrace Developments have 
successfully developed over- 
seas. The report attributes this 
success to the fed that com- 
panies such as these have wefl 
established offices in the coun- 
tries in which they invest. 

Those who did not set up 
local networks have had prob- 
lems operating in a completely 
different climate. And it is 
clear from Mr Batho’s re- 
search that the British have 
been unable to impose their 
way of working on overseas 
markets, but have had to 
adapt to overseas methods, 
usually requiring a local part- 
ner to do so effectively. 

The report also discusses 
the impact of currency 
fluctuations on the success or 
failure of overseas develop- 

The yield shown by a prop- 
erty in purely lota! terms, 
those on which the British 
investor has to compete for 
purchase and sale, can be very 
different from the yield in 
sterling terms. The latter 
forms the basis for judging 
performance in relation to the 
portfolio as a whole 
If the investment is fi- 
nanced from borrowings, the 
relationship between income 
and the cost of borrowing will 
play a crucial role in calcula- 
tions at the time of purchase. 

But not all is doom ppd 
gloom in the survey. Some 
British developers are show- 
ing an interest in Europe 
again, having shunned the 
Continent after the market 
collapsed in the mid-1970s.

Derek Har ris investigates forecasts for BL’s su ccessor 

£200m pothole 
ahead in 
Rover Group’s 
bumpy road 

' Mr Graham Day, Rover 
Group's new chairman and 
chief executive, was no mean 
wielder of the axe in search of 
manufacturing efficiency 
when he was at British Ship- 
builders. After this week’s 
announcement that Austin 
Rover, the volume cars 
subsidiary, had plunged to a 
first half pretax and before 
interest loss of more than £60 
million, it looks as If be may 
well have lo sharpen that 
expertise yet again. 

By the year end Mr Day has 
to produce a new corporate 
plan to present to the Govern- 
ment Either another rational- 
ization plan to minimize the 
losses or a fresh injection of 
stare aid seems inevitable. 

There is no shortage of 
gloomy predictions that Aus- 
tin Rover's losses win worsen 
substantially by the end of its 
calendar financial year. 
Professor Krish Bhaskar, of 
the University of East Anglia, 
a close follower of the fortunes 
of the motor trade, particu- 
larly Rover Group (the former 
BL), had been forecasting a 
£161 million loss for the group 
as a whole this year but has 
now marked it up to between 
£180 million and £200 

Austin Rover losses could 
be between £80 million and 
£90 million, he suggests, 
depending on accounting 
allocations and those of cen- 
tral costs like interest The 
volume cars subsidiary's 
losses might even go higher, 
depending on sales perfor- 
mance in the last four months 
of (he year, he believes. 

Last year Austin Rover lost 
£6 million with the first half 
showing a £600.000 profit. 

The great decline in for- 
tunes in the first half of this 
year emerged this week at 
talks on a workforce demand 
for an extra £10 a week pay 
plus other benefits over one 
year for 26.000 hourly paid 
workers, more than two thirds 
of the workforce. 

The company's offer of a 
two-year deal yielding £9 a 
week in the first year and then 
£18 a week — of which about 
£10 would be dependent on 
bon uses linked to productivity 
and quality — is now being 

The move is in line with Mr 
Day’s strategy which has 
emphasized quality and 
reliability as the touchstones 
in reviving the Rover 

For Austin Rover much 
depends this year on earnings 
wing up from the new 
.over 800 executive range, 
launched in July. But Austin 
Rover is also having to fight 
desperately to keep ahead of 
General Motors* VauxhaU and 

In the driving seat: Graham Day, Rover Group chairman, 
whose strategy is to concentrate on quality and reliability. 

Opel as the second-largest 
supplier to the British market 
after Ford. The price war, 
which shows no sign of end- 
ing, involves heavy discount- 

Discounting clearly will 
have accounted for some of 
Austin Rover's mounting 
losses in the first half. 

But the Rover Group, 
which had an operating loss of 
£39.5 million in 1985 (the 
pretax loss was £110.3 million 
as Jaguar profits were re- 
moved). still has another loss 
maker in its trucks division 

The management buyout of 

Leyland Bus is removing a 
lossmaker but Rover is to lose 
control of the profitable 
Unipart components business 
In this year's accounts the bus 
losses and the Unipan profits 
may to an extent balance. 

On the positive side, Austin 
Rover has been doing belter m 
export markets, where sales 
are 23 per cent up on a year 
ago. and there is a new 
opportunity in trucks with 
Bedford, the GM subsidiary, 
drawing back in the heavy and 
medium sector. 

Austin Rover’s market 
share in Britain stood at 15.9 
per cent in August, compared 
with 17 per cent at the same 
time last year. This was only 
just ahead of GM at 14.5 per 
cent with Ford at 26.49 per 

The company had high 
expectations that the launch of 
the 800 would bring more 
customers to the showrooms 
and would have a catalytic 
effect in stimulating sales of 
the whole Austin Rover range. 

Austin Rover claims it is 
selling all the Rover 800 cars it 
can produce and maintains 
that a shortage of models in 
the early days of the bunch 
has now been overcome. The 
Rover 820. the lowest-priced 
version of the 800. is only just 
being produced in quantity 
and this is expected to be the 
big seller. 

The July and August in- 
creases in market share may 
reflect some influence from 
the 800 bunch but Austin 
Rover could also have been 
largely buying market share by 
deep discounting. 

Clearly, in a savagely 
competitive climate, the de- 
cisive Mr Day will at Rover 
have to get particularly the 
volume cars in sales perfor- 
mance into a higher gear.

A guide to career 

How three men fought back 

How would you picture the shape of your 
future working life if you were to learn 
today that your job was becoming 
redundant? How would you feel about 
such a prospect? 

For many people a career beyond 
redundancy appears unimaginable. Of- 
ten they have been in the same field of 
work for fO or more years, moving into 
adulthood with it and building their 
sense of adult identity through it cn vital 
ways. If they have also been in the same 
profession and organization for some' 
time the mould is even more firmly set. 

To envisage ways in which they might 
pay their bills and use time day-by-day 
and week-by-week without the job and 
organization they've become familiar 
with might well evoke the same kind of 
response as asking how it would be to 
live under water. How would survival be 

• Charles (37) had a background that 
included public school, a professional 
qualification and 15 successful years in 
ascending levels of management in a 
major corporation. Many of his col- 
leagues, neighbours and mends believed 
that he would handle his redundancy in 
his characteristically decisive manner. 

While he enjoyed the bravura image 
he had cultivated, as the days of 
guaranteed employment grew fewer, 
Charles became aware that he didn't 
know how to cope with the sense of 
confusion welling up inside. 

He realized to his distress how he had 
a lot more experience on the selecting 
side of recruitment than on the asking 
side, having not applied for a compet- 
itive appointment for many years. 

Finding the confidence 
to hold out for 
what yon really want 

Fear had become almost uumbingly 
real and his standard routines of self- 
exhortation just didn't seem to work any 
more, especially after his psychologically 
and financially bruising experience at the 
hands of so-called consultants who — for 
a fee of several thousand pounds — had 
guaranteed to provide him -.with in- 
troductions and foiled to honour their 

With the unfoiling and cheerful sup- 
port of his wife and of a professional 
career counselling group be consulted, a 
new sense of self-assurance came about 
almost unawares. He first realized with 
conviction that he was coming back into 
his stride when be told a recruitment 
consultant that he didn't like the way an 
interview was going and wished to start 

The recruitment consultant came bade 
to him some months later with an 
introduction to a City firm looking for 
someone with his distinctive pattern of 

He now felt confident enough to hold 
out for what he really wanted: the 
appointment as a part-time director on 
the basis of working three days a week (so 
that he would be free to cultivate other 
possibilities of earning as a part-time 

Prospects can seem 
grim after redundancy. 
Kieran Duignan looks at 
how Charles, Tony and 
Ron found it an 
enriching experience 

self-employed consultant, thereby fire- 
proofing himself against the shock of 
“hundred per cent redundancy on any 
later occasion). 

His assertiveness paid dividends - the 
City firm was sufficiently confident that 
it could put his negotiating talents to its 
service that h agreed to appoint him on 
almost the exact terms be asked for. Less 
than six months after his job actually 
became redundant, Charles entered a 
new phase of his career. 

For him, this phase is unfoWing into 
one embracing “a portfolio” of paid 
work, combining directorship of a newly- 
formed company with consultancy on a 
self-employed basis (that draws on his 
experience of negotiating, publicity, 
training and personnel management). 

• Tony (39) is a very different person. 
Nigerian by birth and upbringing, he had 
trained and worked as a marine engineer 
(with the first class certificate of the 
Board of Trade). While he had enjoyed 
many of his travels and life aboard ship 
— he was very perceptive about the 
attitudes and feelings of others and 
probably worked well in a technical 
team, both asa follower and as a leader— 
he was becoming increasingly concerned 
about the consequences for his family of 
long absences from home. 

In this sense, redundancy came as a 
relief for it brought to a head the 
question of finding an acceptable liveli- 
hood in or around the famil y home in 

Although one part ofhim was inclined 
to look for opportunities to leave his 
previous way of life totally and to 
become involved in a job with young 
black people, another part was anxious 
about the risk of the extent of such 
change and was more inclined to find 
ways of continuing to use his engineering 

The career counsellor he consulted 
drew his attention to the possibility of 
doing a one-year full-time conversion 
course leading to a Higher Certificate in 
Building Engineering Services of the 
Business and Technician Education 
Council, with a substantial grant from 
the Manpower Services Commission. 

He applied successfully for admission 
and now, a year later, has completed the 
course with flying colours and is working 
as a technician with a major building 
services contractor. 

• Ron (54) is an honours graduate and 
chartered electronic engineer — and a 
young grandfather, with the last ofhis six 
children in the sixth form. During the 10 
years before his job was made redundant 

he had moved from a purely technical 
role to a team leader in the multinational 
corporation where he had spent his 
whole career. Looking back, he felt 
strongly that these years had been a time 
of stagnation for him. 

A perfectionist, be was keenly puzzled 
about frequent assessments in which be 
had been faulted about lack of sensitivity 
to attitudes and feelings of people 
working with him. As a devout church- 
man he was also sharply hurt, for this 
shortcoming was not due to lack of 
sincere effort on his part to tune in to 

Taking part in regular meetings of a 
counselling group for redundant exec- 
utives enabled him to get some insight 
into his interactions with others. But 
habits of more than 50 years aren't easily 

What did enable him to find a break- 
through was the growing realization of 
how much the central impulse ofhis life 
in recent years had been his interest in 
church affair* 

With the encouragement of a career 
counsellor, be explored diverse possible 
ways offinding expression for this during 
the next phase of his career and 
succeeded beyond his expectations. He 
applied successfully for a part-time 
vacancy as an organizer of pilgrimages, 
leaving him enough time to pursue his 
self-appointed project to develop low- 
cost computerized information systems 
for use by religious groups. 

As he no longer regarded himself as a 
practising engineer he didn't find it an 
enormous wrench to move into a 
working future beyond his original 

Learning to lire with 
courage through shock and 
to build something new 

profession that offered him meaning 
with a lively sense of calling. 

To say that people are discovering what 
lies beyond the shadowy experience 
when their jobs are made redundant is by' 
no means to make light of those 
unfortunate people for whom the experi- 
ence is psychologically crippling. It is 
intended to highlight how people can 
leant to live with courage through the

, Four-day matches are Imran’s solution 

\ - THE 

,. # STATE OF 

Day two of the special 
reports in The Times, Peter 
Ball hears the players’ 

W hat I can’t understand," 
Imran Khan said, "is why 
they don't ask the 
players’ opinions about 
. i ■ tiie 8,1,011111 of cricket we 

play " Which is why we had gone to him 
with that Question, and others, about 
the slate of the game in England from 
the viewpoint ofibe truly international 
cricketer: Pakistan Test captain, one of 
the world's best all-rounders and with 
the experience and love — and frustra- 
tion — gained from 10 summers in the 
country and more than JO winters 
playing around the globe. 

We started, with the suggestion of 
four-day county championship 
matches. Imran is convinced that while 
four-day domestic competitions have 
helped, other countries improve im- 
measurably, the present problems of 
English cricket can be traced firmly to 
the quality and quantity of the English 
system.“The objective of the three-day 
game is to produce Test cricketers and it 
is not doing sa” he said, as he embarked 
on a wide-ranging analysis of the 
structural deficiencies which have 
pursuaded him to restrict his appear- 
ances for Sussex. 

"I am so bored with this nonsensical 
contrived cricket where, with two teams 
level on the morning of the third day, 
you have to give the other side runs to 
set up a declaration, so you get these 
ridiculous hundreds being scored while ' 
the wicketkeeper is bowling But on 
good wickets, with fairly evenly bal- 
anced sides, which most counties are 
now, 1 cannot see how one county can 
win without contrived results. And what 
happens to the leading teams is that no 
one wfl] set them a target, so in order to 
get a result they produce under- 
prepared wickets, which are not good 
for cricket-" 

Even more destructive, he believes, is 
the volume of cricket played, dulling 
players' appetites so that by mid-July 
the keenness of early-season cricket has 
been dissipated, with all except the two 
or three top teams just going through the 
motions.“In one spell this season 
Sussex played 42 days’ cricket out of 44. 
It's complete madness. They were worn 
out. One-day cricket has changed 
everything — travelling has increased, 
which is more tiring than people realize, 
and the extra pace of the one-day game 
adds to the physical demands.” 

- Anyone who spends the 'summer 

Give Lloyd: “Tm not .sure that the authorities 
are getting to grips with the changes” 

Graeme Hick: “There has to be more planning pot into the fixtures so that Imran Khan: "The o 
there is more spare time for the players to get their energy bade" eri 

ve of the three-day game is to produce Test 
;rs and it is not doing so" 

following die county circuit will rec- 
ognize the force of Imran’s observations 

but it is the consequences for English 
Test cricket which give his arguments 
for a restructuring their greatest thrust. 
Conceding th at the volume of cricket 
played provides a thorough grounding 
in the game, he accepts that it has its 
advantages in producing batsmen "to a 
certain lever but be has doubts about 
its ability to equip them properly for 
Test matches. 

"They learn a lot because they get so 
many knocks but the disadvantage is 
that every innings becomes just another 
innings; If you fail today you get another 
innings tomorrow, so it is not a big 
occasion and they don’t learn to {day 
under pressure.” 

pace bowlers with this amount of 
cricket. For a young fast bowler it is a 
killer. At 18 or 19 you aren't physically 
mature and your body can't support the 
demands made of h. They are young 
and eager and want to make their mark 
and so they bowl through ni g glin g 
injuries, and captains, bung human and 
wanting to win, use them and sooner or 
later something goes — ankle or knee or 
back or shoulder. And nothing restricts 
your pace like a serious injury. 

genuine English fist bowlers of my era, 
John Snow and Bob Willis, neither 
featured in- county cricket. Chris Old 
was as fist as anyone in the world on my 
first lour in 1971. By 1975, after three 
years of injuries, be had become a 
medium pacer. And that is what county 
cricket, day in, day out, encourages." 

following the examples of other coun- 
tries and instituting a four-day com- 
petition would produce much better 
cricket and hence much better cricket- 
ers. A shortened programme of 1 6 four- 
day matches. Ire insists, would also 
enable groundsmen to produce better 
wickets as welL 

"If yon look at the young English fist 
bowlers who have come through in my 
time— Diiley, Foster, Pigott and Adrian 
Jones — they’ve all been set back by 

injury. Tony Pigott has got a pin in his 
back after he fractured it because his 
backbone wouldn’t stand np to the 
strain at a young age. So Ires Foster. 
"Adrian Jones is the best prospect I’ve 
seen. He’s got natural late away swing, 
be bowls dose to the stumps, he'squick, 
aggressive and bonds the unplayable 
ball If he can survive a whole season 
he'll play for England — but he just 
caiinot survive the pace at the moment 

T hat players are expected to 
prove themselves over a long 
period before bong selected, 
and then frequently are 
dropped before having the 
chance to aedimatmt to the greater 
pressures of Test match cricket, only 
exacerbates the problem. But if the 
emergence of Bailey, Whitaker. Met- 
calfe and Fairbrother suggests that we 
are still discovering batsmen of consid- 
erable promise, the dearth of fist 
bowlers is unarguable. It is no cause for 
surprise, according to Imran- 
- "I just cannot see England producing 

That trend is increased by the spread 
of poor wickets lacking in pace, another 
product, Imran believes, of the exces- 
sive amount of cricket played in this 
country and a development which does 
nothing to help prepare bonders for Test 
cricket.“Hove used to be fist and even 
that is a slow seamer nowadays. This 
summer I just didn't think the England 
bowlers were good enough because they 
were used to bowling on green, under- 
prepared wickets and so, when they 
came to Test wickets, they struggled. 

Along with that change he would cut 
down the amount of limited-over 
cricket The Sunday league, "which is 
no use to anyone," would go. leaving the 
championship games to be played from 
Friday to Monday, and there would be 
only one limited-over competition, 60- 
over games, either league or knockout, 
played on Wednesdays. 

produces more competitive and enthu- 
siastic matches, and his arguments for 
its effect on English Test cricket are 
weighty."Four-day cricket is nearer to 
five-day Test cricket and is a better 
preparation for it There is no 100-over 
limit so sides can't just wait for the 
declaration. Bowlers nave to keep on 
trying to get wickets, so they have to 
learn to get people out on good wickets 

and not just rely on line and length. It 
restores a place to spin bowlers, who, at 

the moment, are only used to keep your 
over-rate above the level where fines 
come in. 

W e played against Neal 
Radford at Worcester 
and he was virtually un- 
playable because he put it 
on a spot and it moved 
away a lot When he put it on the same 
spot on good wickets m Tests, he found 
him self being driven all over the place." 
The Pakistan captain has a ready 
, solution for these intractable problems, 
which have been so visible in England’s 
recent Test record. He believes that 

"He comes off on Tuesday worn out 
after a spell and on Wednesday morn- 
ing. perhaps after a 150 to 200-mile 
journey m between, be has to get up and 
start bowling again and he goes off 
limping. It is just too hand for young 
bowlers."Ifyou look at the record of the 

He is, perhaps, loo sanguine about 
wickets being improved as a result and 
he admits that to expect universally 
good wickets is perhaps over-optimistic 
but he utterly rejects the idea that a four- 
day competition would lead to slower, 
more negative cricket He does concede 
that in his opinion a struggle forfirst-in- 
nings lead occupying most of the four 
days would be preferable to the con- 
trived finishes in the three-day game. 

That argument may not appeal to 
everyone. His experience with New 
South Wales in the Sheffield Shield has 
made him an enthusiastic advocate of 
the four-day game, believing that it 

F or batsmen it is obviously 
better, it gives them a chance to 
build longer innings, it gives 
numbers six and seven time to 
play an innings. And, because 
they will be playing fewer innings, it will 
be a bigger occasion and teach them to 
play under pressure, which is one area 
where the Australians, who play too 
little cricket, are so impress ve.“Beca use 
it is so competitive, Sheffield Shield 
cricket is fun to play — Dennis Lillee 
once told me he sometimes enjoyed it 
even more than Test matches. I couldn’t 
believe my ears, because no English 
player would ever say that about county 
cricket — England players just go 
through the motions when they go back 
to their counties.” 

Lloyd takes a swipe at the rules 

D efenders of the status quo 
might be tempted to dis- 
miss Imran Khan’s cri- 
tique as the special 
pleading of a player who 
has cut down his own commitments 
in county cricket Even the crustiest 
committee man, however, would find 
it hard to ignore Clive Lloyd, who has 
slogged smiling through the toil of the 
county circuit for most of the 18 
seasons since he joined Lancashire in 

The most successful captain in 
West Indies' history, Lloyd is one of 
the game's most respected elder 
statesmen, the -last person to deni- 
grate English cricket. Yet he agrees 
with much of Imran’s analysis, 
concurring with the view that too 
much cricket is played, with a serious 
effect on quality. 

"By August," he says, echoing 
Imran, "half to three-quarters of the 
teams have nothing to play for and 
are going through the motions. The 
demands are much higher than they 
used to be when I started, there is a lot 
more travelling and players get more 
injuries now. Even the hours are 
longer — I played at Oxford Univer- 

sity earlier this season and it was the 
first time I had played decent horns, 
1 130 to 630, for years.” 

But whife agreeing that four-day 
-cricket, with a shortened programme, 
would be beneficial — "the four-day 
game breeds better players" - Lloyd 
also believes that changes in the 
three-day game since he began play- 
ing have been counter- 
productive. “Cricket has changed a lot 
in the last 10 yarns and rm.not sure 
that the authorities are getting to grips 
with the changes. The reason the gap 
between county and Test cricket is 
widening is because of all the rules,” 
he says, citing the over-rate require- 
ments as a positively destructive 

"It messes up the game. If we bowl 
16 overs an hour we finish, the day’s 
play at the allotted time but we don't 
meet the required over-rate, which is 
nonsense. Bowlers can't learn any- 
thing because they’re rushing to get 
through their overs and batsmen can 

off after six overs instead of going on 
for 10 or 1 1. So when they come to 
Tests and have to battle against quick 

bowlers they don’t have the 

But if Lloyd is convinced that such 
roles are positively harmful, he also 
mourns some of the effects of one-day 
cricket "Spinners have lost the art of 
flight and tossing it up. Geoff Miller 
used to have a beautiful loop when he 
started with Derbyshire but one-day 
cricket has killed it” 

Y et he is an admirer of the 
NaiWest competition, per- 
haps understandably, given 
his and Lancashire’s suc- 
cess in 60-over matches 
from his early years with the dub. 
"The 60-over competition is one of 
the best competitions ever invented 
anywhere in the world.” 

Although agreeing with Imran's 
desire to cut down the amount of 
cricket, he believes that f i nan c ial 
necessity dictates the retention of a 
Sunday league and be is prepared to 
countenance a Saturday limited-over 
league as well, with the four-day 
championship matches played from 
Tuesday to Friday. "We must have 
Mondays off, though, because Mon- 
day, after a Sunday league match, is 
the hardest day of the week.” 

He suggests that all aspects of the 
game would be improved by the 
inclusion on committees of people 
who have come fresh from their 
playing careers rather than those 
returning to the game after a spell 
away, a point he particularly stresses 
on selection committees. There he 
feels that umpires could also play an 
invaluable role. "They see players 
consistently rather than being im- 
pressed by one sighting on a fiat

Lloyd does not go all the way with 
Imran in blaming the structure. As 
one would expect, with his im- 
peccable record, he is completely out 
of sympathy with undisciplined 

T wenty-year-olds who have scored 
2,000 runs in their first full season 
are unlikely to find much wrong with 
county cricket and Graeme Hick, 
who Iras emerged in 1986 as one of 
the game's potential greats, is no exception. 
Hick, who began the season hoping to play in 
half of Worcestershire's matches and score 
1 .000 runs, understandably confesses to being 
delighted with the way the year has gone and 
tie confirms Imran's point that, for batsmen, 
three-day county cricket is a solid training 

their game in the middle because of the fewer 
games played, would have its attractions. 

Less critical than Imran and Lloyd of the 
three-day game as such, be concurs with 
Imran in deploring the effects of contrived 
declarations. He Teels the answer lies in 
allowing the three-day game to take its natural 
course with proper cricket being played and 
captains declaring as they think appropriate 
rather than as the result of an arrangement 
with the opposition. 

behaviour, particularly when it is 
likely to influence children, and he 
questions modern players’ 
dedication."! don’t think they have 
the same dedication as Boycott and 
Edrich but that is true in other 
countries, too, it is not just an English 
problem. I wonder if the people in 
charge are too soft Flayers are better 
paid nowadays and perhaps more 
dedication should be demanded of 

"I have learned an incredible amount in the 
year from both my own side and from studying 
players in opposing teams," he says, 
acknowledging that the sheer volume of 
innings in a season provides splendid experi- 
ence. He points out, however, that it is a lot 
earin' for batsmen to cope with the demands 
than for bowlers and he adds that while yon 
are in form the constant cricket is line but "a 
bad patch can seem endless because if it lasts 
two weeks you have played perhaps eight 
innings in that time, so it seems as if it has 
been going on for ever.” 

Of one thing he is certain: if the three-day 
system is to be retained along with the onoday 
structure, it needs amending, probably by 
reducing the programme.

It is hard to remember Hick having had a 
bad match this year, let alone a bad patch, his 
ability impressing opponents and spectators 
alike. However, he is one of those few lucky 
•people to be blessed with outstanding natural 
rafts, a batsman like Gower, Greg Chappell. 
Barry Richards, Viv Richards, Grcenidge and 
Lloyd, who would probably reach greatness 
under any system, so his success can hardly be 
used to defend the present structure. 

T here has to be more planning put into 
the fixtures, so that there is more 
spare time between them for players 
to get their energy back,” he says. “I 
went through a stage of coming off 
feeling absolutely shattered even when I 
hadn't done very much in the day. There are 
times when the alarm goes off and you have to 
drag yourself out ofbed to go off to play cricket 
again and when you do get a couple of days off 
you can’t do anything in them, you just sleep.”

Even he admits that the demands of the 
system have taken the edge from his appetite 
at times. As an eager young strokemaker who 
finds transition between championship and 
one-day cricket easier than most, he still 
concedes that four-day cricket, with the effect 
of raving batsmen more time to build an 
innings, and also forcing them to work more at 

For the moment — being young, fit and 
powerful — that feeling is temporary, his 
enthusiasm quickly reasserting itself when he 
gets into the dressing-room. How long that will 
be true remains to be seen, particularly if his 
hopes of Test cricket are to be delayed for an- 
other seven years, as they will be under the 
present regulations, although be is pinning 
hope on next month's meeting ofibe Test ana

becoming dulled by the daily grind.

Great efforts have been made 
this year to stop or to diminish 
the salmon catch by netsmen off

salmon returning to Scottish

against the English netsmen has 
been stimulated by a great deal 
of Scottish lobbying. Scottish 
riparian owners, many of whom 
net their own rivers, have been 
active through their spokesmen

murdering the fish. The only 
fish being caught by rods on our

Living on a knife-edge of security risks 

From David Miller 

Only four days before a 
bomb killed five South Kore- 
ans at the fotenmtwual airport 
here last Sunday, Juan Anto- 
nio Samaranch, the president 
of the International Olympic 
Committee (IOC), received 
specific ' warning from 
authored five sources within 
the Olympic movement on the 
probable penetration of Ko- 
rean security before and dur- 
ing the Olympic Games here 
in two years time. At the same 
time, international intelligence 
agencies were aware that 
North Korea had in recent 
weeks doubled its infiltration 
of personnel into the South, 
prior to this Saturday's start of 
the Asian Games. 

It Is not being alarmist to 
say that at no time in history 
has an Olympic Games been 
living on such a knife-edge of 
security risks so far in advance 
of the event. The situation is 
both a political and sporting 
nightmare for the South Ko- 
rean government, who in 
conjunction with their sporting 

administrators, are about to 
reveal to the world in the 
Asian Games an array of 
modem sporting technology 
without equal. 

The potential for t er r oris m 
here in Seoul is if anytime 
greater even than in Paris, 
where the recent wave of 
attacks must seriously have 
undermined their bid to host 
the 1992 Games, which will be 
decided in Lausanne next 
month. Alain Danet, leader of 
the Paris committee, at-

ing world at a dinner here last 
night that Paris would get on 
top of the problem and tint

A member of the IOC 
executive board here this week 
went to be measured the other 
day for one of those 24-hoar

readily acquire at downtown 
tailors. USs official guide de- 
cided that be, too. would order 
a shirt, and stripped off his

knows it or not, an armed 

Every floor of the hotel 
housing the Asian organizing 
committee and the ICC has a 
round the dock police guard. 
Every person entering the 
hotel, every guest at every 
cocktail party, must pass 
through an electronic screen, 
to the point where you cast a 
carious eye at even the wine 
waiters. The same scrutiny 
exists now at the main Press 
centre and the competitor's 

village and win be in operation 
at all stadia from Saturday, 
and of course at the new 
Olympic village which will be 
built for 1968. 

The Communist enemy from 
North Korea Iks only 50 
Ititometres up the road, across 
the de-mflitarized zone of the 
38th parallel. Yet it is mislead- 
ing for the Sooth Koreans and 
'for anyone else to be preoccu- 
pied with the threat from their 
neighbours, who in recent 
years have substantially 
raised their levels of comini 
forces and armaments along 
the 100-roile border. The se- 
curity crisis for the Olympic 
Games conk) come from within 
South Korea. 

Protesting elements among 
students and manual workers 
within the opposing New Ko- 
rea Democratic Party have 
long threatened disruption if 
the government does not yield 
to democratic changes in the 
election process. Chun Doe 
Hwan, the national president,

mouths before the Olympic 

Evidence from Sunday's 

explosion, following which ex- 
Korean nationals among a 
party of Japanese tourists 
were held on sospidoa and 
(hen released, shows (hat the 
wire, lose and probably also 
the explosive was manufac- 
tured in South Korea. 

The IOC will demand re- 
assurance from local security 
forces before they learofollow- 
■ mg the opening ceremony on 
Saturday. Repeated dashes 
between students of South 
Korea University ami the po- 
lice are an ill omen, echoing 

the situation in Mexico City in 

1958; during the meeting of 
the Association of ■ 

Olympic Committee^ ANOQ 
here last April, three student 
protestors . made banian 
torches of themselves. - - 

It was during that ANOC 
meeting that Marat Gromov, 
chairman of the Soviet Olym- 
pic Committee, asked whether 
US forces, who patrol the 
border in thousands, were 
ultimately responsible for the 
security of tfeis country. The 
answer of the Seoul Olympic 
organizing committee was 

effectively “yes”. The 
combination of ext ern a l and 
internal terrorist threats poses 
a colossal problem in the 
protection of Olympic teams, 
and the IOC ' is likely 
propose that each team 
1988 should provide its own 
security official who is knowl- 
edgeable on the possible 
sources of attack. 

Military experts here know 
that if North Korea foils to 
achieve what it wants in its 
negotiations, wholly outside 
the IOC charter, to stage more 
events in Pyongyang, it is still 
capable of wrecking the 
Games by massing troops on 
the border and provoking even 
a minor incident. 

On the domestic, front, the 
government believes that any 
democratic adjustment prior to 
the Games will weaken their 
control of security: yet refusal 
will encourage muftancy. Tae 
Woo Roh, the former presi- 
dent of the Seoul organizi n g 
committee, who is due to 
succeed Chun Doo Hwan m 
1988, is in an embarrassing 
deft stick.

Australia full 
of confidence 

Madras (Reuter) — Australia, 
who have not won a Test series 
for nearly three years, are brim- 
ming with confidence as they 
face the first of three Test 
marches against India starting 
today. Allan Border's team open 
the scries at a ground where they 
are unbcaien in Test matches 
and against an Indian side 
without dependable middle-or- 
der batsman Dilip Vengsarkar. 

Vengsarkar. who played a key 
role in India’s recent tnuraph in 
England, withdrew last week 
after straining a shoulder in a 
one-day match against the tour- 
ing team. 


TV date could turn sour 

Four days away from their 
most public ard testing 
examination to date, against 
Everton at Goodison Park be- 
fore the television cameras on 
Sunday. Manchester United, 
and notably their manager. Ron 
Atkinson, were still at a loss 
yesterday to understand their 
latest defeat, the fourth ia six 
games, at Waxford on Tuesday. 

This defeat, following on 
from the spectacular 5-1 victory 
over Southampton on Saturday, 
represented one of football’s 
shortest comebacks. It was all 
the more dumbfounding for the 
way in which United continued 
the good work at Vicarage Road. 
But this time there was no 
reward. Atkinson, who was 
similarly lost for words, refusing 
to speak after the game, recov- 
ered sufficiently to say: “It’s 
puzzling. Whenever we've lost a 
game lately people have pointed 
a finger at our commitment. But 
I would never accuse our side of 
lacking that. Sometimes our 
skill factor has let us down. 
We've put ioo big a demand on 
it for ibe game we want to play.” 

Thankfully, there is no likeli- 
hood yet of United abandoning 
their traditional buccaneering 
style in favour of a more 
conservative approach. By co- 
incidence the crucial goal 

By Clive White 
against Watford was conceded 
when McGrath, their centre 
half, was caught in possession 
while attempting to play his way 
out of defence. Others in similar 
enru instances would have sim- 
ply wellied the ball upfiekl — 
Watford style. Any such mistake 
against Everton will be mag- 
nified to grotesque proportions 
by the cameras and critics. Not 
since Liverpool's temporary de- 
mise two season's ago has a 
club's failures been more widely 
documented than Manchester 
United's are at present, Atkin- 
son is hoping to have Whiteside 
and St rachan a vailab le after 
ankle and groin injuries, respec- 
tively. Because of their absence 
at Watford. Moses was recalled, 
after a long-term ankle injury, to 
join his old colleague and fellow 
patiem, Robson, for the first 
time in ! I months 
Atkinson was pleased with 
both of them. “They’re a tittle 
rusty but you could still see what 
their contribution is going to be 
like. They just need two orthree 
games to get sharp. Their stam- 
ina didn't foil them because 
they've done so much physical 
work while they’ve been away 
from the action. I’ve been 
waiting ages to get Whiteside, 
Robson and Moses in the same 
midfield. Particularly for away 

games. I think there would be a 
lot of devil in there.” 

Atkinson believed that 
United were better against Wat- 
ford " than they' were against 
Southampton in respect of win- 
ning the ball and dosing oppo- 
nents down. He said: “Thai’s 
the best we've ever played at 
Watford and we've won therein 
the past. People will look at the 
amount of possession we had 
and say there must be some- 
thing wrong with the forwards 
but I thought our link up play in 
attack was b rillian t. Olsen hat- 
tied his life out and only 
occasionally let himself down in 
terms of his control, which 
ought to be his asset. Pop should 
have scored on the rebound 
from Olsen's second half shot. 
He said he should have vollied it 
instead of trying to place n. The 
other Dane. Sivebaek, is getting 
better with every game.” 

With the inevitable result of 
continued failure staring him in 
the face, it should be heartening 
for Atkinson to hear that he is 
still wanted elsewhere, allegedly 
by Aston Villa. Bui .Atkinson

Fight back by 
to draw level 

From a Correspondent 

Great Britain and Ireland km 
the early initiative and were 
level in two of the four opening 
foursome matches after nine 
holes in the Beils Scotch PGA 
Cup at Knoll wood, Chicago. At 
one stage all four of the British 
pairings were ahead before the 
Americans mounted their fight- 

Leading the way for Britain 
and Ireland, winners of the PGA 
Cup for the last two years but 
still to win on A meri can soil, 
were Denis Duraian, 
North endens former British

Wheeler Stewart and Jim White 
in the top match. The Scottish 
partnership of Martin Gray 
(Lady bank) and Russell Weir 
(Cowal). two up after three 
holes, were one down at the turn 
after the Americans made two 
successive birdies and Gary 
Smith (Knighton Heath) and 
Keith Robson (Beadlow Manor) 
also let a two up advantage slip 
and were one down at the turn. 

But the Scots. Willie Milne

Night Cap 
and Leng 
look good 

From Jenny MacArthnr 
BUIy lit, Poland 

In this remote and peaceful 
area of northern Poland (Bialy 
B6r means “quiet forest^), tire 
British team, led by Virginia 
Leng, the world and European 
champion, with Night Cap. will 
today renew its longstanding 
rivalry with die Americans, led 
by Bruce Davidson, the former 
dual. world champion. 

In the three-day event 
championship the Russians, 
Polish, and the West Germans, 
led by Helmut Rethemeier and 
Santiago, the 1982 world silver 
medal winner, are all compet- 
ing, but there is no doubt about 
the joint favourites. Both the 
American and British teams 
indude two riders from their 
.world championship teams ear- 
lier this year. The British have 
Mrs Leng. and Ian Stark who 
rides his Badminton winner. Sir 
Wattie,and the Americans have 
Davidson with the 1 1 year-old 
Pilot Kid and Karen Lende with 
The Optimist 

The other two members of the 
British team are Rachel Hunt 
with her Badminton runner-up 
Piglet JI and Madeleine Gunfon 
with The Done Thnig. Both are 
making their debut with- the 
British senior team. Rodney 
Powell with Catkin of Rushan 
and Jane Thdwall with King’s 
Jester are competing as 

Night Cap could well give Mrs 
Leng her third big victory of the 
year (to add to her world 
championship title with Price- 
less and this month's Buighley 
with Murphy Himself). Apart 
from a run-out at the difficult 
corner fence at Gaxcombe fast 
month Night Cap has shown 
superb form this year including 
fourth place at Badminton and 
at the Scottish Championships.

Wrexham back 

on the trail of 

European glory 

Wrexham, of (he fourth 
division, yesterday opened 
their European Cup Winners’ 
Cup campaign in Valletta. 
Malta, and came away with a 
creditable 3-0 victory over 
Zurrieq. The Welsh dub, who 
missed out on European com- 
petition last season, opened 
the scoring in the l 4th minute 
through Massey, with Charles 
getting the second in the 57th 
minute and Conroy complet- 
ing the set eight minutes later.

European Cup.- In the same

Irish are looking 
for a bit of luck 

By George Ace 

Howard Kendall is nothing 
If not resilient Merseyside 
rivals, Liverpool, pot three 
goals past his Everton side on 
Tuesday night and his injury 
crisis reached proportions that 
would bring most other chibs 
to a halt But the Everton 
manager could still spit defi- 
ance, and even more remark- 
ably, smile, as he set the scene 
for the second leg of the Screen 
Sport Super Cup final at 
Goodison in two weeks time. 

Despite trailing 3-1, Ken- 
dall is insisting: “All is not 
lost” Most people wish this ill 
conceived competition, a hang- 
over from last season, had 
been strangled at birth, ami 
Liverpool player-manager, 
Kenny Dalglish, put its im- 
portance in perspective, say- 
ing; “Wien, it beats a training 
session.” But Kendall is con- 
fident: “We are quite capable 
of winning this competition 

By the second leg, be hopes 
to have a few of Tuesday’s 10 
absent players fit for action, 
including Kevin Sheedy, who 
picked np a groin strain at 
Anfield after cancelling oat 
Ian Rnsh’s sixth minute 
opener. Kendall admitted: “He 
is a doubt for Sunday’s game 
against Manchester United; 
but we are keeping onr fingers 
crossed. We seem to have all 
onr fingers crossed at the 

While the younger Everton 
players missed Sheedy's 
experience when he left the 
field. Liverpool got more bene- 
fit than jnst a comfortable 
lead. Steve Nicol proved his 
fitness and Jan Molby came 
on to remove any lingering 
doubts abont his foot injury. 
“It was a good game for 
players to improve their 
fitness.” said Dalglish, though 
Kendall cannot be blamed for 
not agreeing. 

Hammer throwers making 
huge dents in the centre circle; 
embarrassed Waterford of- 
ficials not on hand at Cork 
airport to meet Bordeaux, 
their opponents, and little 
Galway United rendered 
homeless by UEFA regula- 
tions for the second leg tie: 
Thai is the luck of the Irish in 
theirquest for European glory. 

Lin field, the Irish League 
champions, nipped along to 
the Trondheim stadium in 
Norway on Tuesday night to 
have a look at the pitch on 
which they did battle against 
Rosenborg last night and were 
aghast to find an athletics 
meeting in progress. George 
Dunlop, the goalkeeper, 
wasn't unduly concerned 
about the state of the centre 

at both endswas pockmarked 
with divits that be found for 
from amusing. “The worst 
conditions I have ever seen in 
Europe. It could only happen 
to the Irish.” Dunlop said, a 
veteran of 18 appearances in 
European competitions — a 
club record. 

Waterford’s embarrassment 
is easily explained: the one 
hour time difference between 
the countries had been over- 
looked and that is really not 
surprising to anyone who has 
travelled in the deep South of 
the Irish Republic where time 
is something that passes by 
but is of no real importance. A 
request to know the time is 
often answered thus: An hour 
off opening time or alter- 
natively an hour to closing 
time. What the watch says is 
quite irrelevant. 

Head over heels: Mike Davis, an American hwhall player with Oakland Athletics, dives 
for home in his side's game with Texas Rangers and gets there by a nose 


Galway United's ground in 
the hot-bed of Gaelic sport in 
the West doesn’t measure up 
to EUFA specifications and 
they have had to take the 
second leg tie some 35 miles 
out of the dty. After the 5-1 
first leg drubbing by FC 
Groningen on Tuesday night, 
United really must be wonder- 
ing what it is all about and 
pondering that perhaps it 
would be bettor returning to 
the days before the West 
awoke and Connacht lay in 
slumber deep.

Barnsley pay penalty 
for miss in shoot-out 

Barnsley, who are bottom 
of the second division after 

losing all six of their League 
matches, could not even win a 

penalty shoot-out at Sunder- 
land, where they went out of 
the Full Members’ Cup on 
Tuesday night. 

Ater 681 minutes without a 
goal Barnsley found the net in 
the 66th minute of the tie. 
Gray cancelling out 
Kennedy's opening goal 60 
seconds earlier. Fourteen pen- 
alties hit the target in the 
shoot-out after extra time, 
before the Sunderland goal-

score the winning penalty. 

Brotherston scored an ex- 
tra-time winner for Blackburn

Town came back from two 
goals down for the second 
time in four days, to beat

63rd minute winner 

In the second division, 
Shrewsbury punished a mis- 
take by the Brighton goal- 
keeper. Digweed, to record 
their second home League win 
in four days. Robinson scored 
the only goal after 52 minutes 
when Digweed fumbled a 
cross from Hacken. 

Second-half goals by 
Howlett and Puckett sent 
Bournemouth to the top of the 
third division with a 2-1 home 
win over Chester. 


Dennis Andries, the .World 
Boxing Council tight heavy- 
weight champion, from Hack- 
ney, who for years has been 
pushing against the door to 
recognition in Britain, found 
himself on the threshold of 
world renown when he re- 
ceived the Croxley Script best 
boxer of the year award at a 
British Boxing Board of Con- 
trol lunch in London yes- 
terday . Suddenly everyone, 
including past, present and 
future British and world 
champions, were queuing up 
to shake his hand. 

Andries, while acknowledg- 
ing that people were seeing 
him in a different light at last, 
after eight years of campaign- 
ing. said he “still had a lot to 
prove to people in Britain”. 
He said: “I want to show I’m 
for real.” Of his next defence 
against the World Boxing 
Council light middleweight 
champion. Tommy Hearns, of 
Detroit, he said: “it is not now 
a question of ifl meet Tommy 
Hearns, but after I've beaten 
Tommy; Hearns." 

Andries’ manager, Greg 
Steene, maintained however, 
that Andries still needed 
Hearns to make him a world 
figure. “A win over Hearns 
can do for Dennis in the world 
what that nine rounds win 
over Sibson did for him in 
Britain. Beating Sibson was 
better than beating the Num- 
ber one light heavyweight 
challenger” Steene believed 
that Andries' defence against 
Hearns would be in America 
in January. “An American 
promoter has approached us 
and wants to put the fight on 
there. There’s still a lot of 
negotiation to do but talks are 
quite advanced and I'm going 
to America next week to try 

and conclude matters. The 
purse and ancillaries should 
take Dennis' income for the 
Hearns fight well into six 
figures.” Steene added that 
while Andries was a “sensa- 
tion overnight” he still had a 
lot more left in him to give. 
“Dennis still has the edge and 
menatality of a challenger,” 
Steene said. 

Frank Bruno received the 
Alexander Elliott award for 
sportsmanship. Bruno had to 
watch the video screen and 
live through those final trau- 
matic moments of the 1 1th 
round with Tim Witherspoon 
last July before he could walk 
up to receive the award from 
Jack Petersen, the president of 
the British Boxing Board of 
ControL The eliminator for 
the British middleweight title 
between Mark Kaylor. ofWest 
Ham and Errol Christie, of 
Coventry was considered the 
best contest of the year, and 
while Kaylor could not be 
there to receive his honour 
because of his contest last 
night at the Albert Hall, 
Christie was there to see 
himself knocked down twice 
and flooring Kaylor twice. He 
promised something 
“sensational” at his next 
appearance at Shendish 
House, Hertfordshire on Sat- 

The prize for the best 
overseas boxer seen in Britain 
was given, quite rightly, to 
Azumah Nelson, of Ghana, 
the World Boxing Council 
featherweight champion, who 
knocked out Pat Cowdell of 
Wariey in the first round in 
Birmingham. Ray Clarice, who 
retired as secretary of the 
Board, received the award for 
services to boxing.

on cash 

By Mitchell Platts 

Severiano Ballesteros and 
Bernhard Longer yesterday 
caused a golfing conflict with- 
out hitting a ball in anger. 
Lawrence Batiey, the sponsor, 
disturbed by their absence 
from the ToBnamest Players’ 
Championship which starts at 
the Belfry today, has opted for 
a policy change and be wiU pay 
appearance money next year. 

Mr Batiey, a cash-and-carry 
millionaire from Hoddersfidd, 
said: “1 am disappointed with 
the turnout. I’ve tried three 
years without paying appear- 
ance money, but if yon can't 
beat them yon have to join 

“The players don't give a 
damn abont the tide, bat 1 
want to make the TPC as 
prestigious as any other event 
on the tour. It is just a ran of 
(he mill event at the moment - 
if it means paying those guys 
to upgrade it and get TV then I 

Bat Ken Schofield, exec- 
utive director of foe PGA 
European Tour, insisted: 
“There are 149 players here 
who do think it is a worthwhile 
tournament tide. Eight of last 
year's Ryder Cup team are 
playing. Anyway, Sere is 
asked to play in more tour- 
naments than there are weeks 
in a year." 

Mr Badey enticed Fuzzy 
ZoeUer to play in his first 
event in 1991, then brought 
over American compatriots 
Arnold Palmer and Lee 
Trevino foe following year. 
Bntbe has patiented toed the 
PGA European Tom’s anti- 
appearance money outlook for 
the last three years. 

Tournament preview, 


Imran’s future 
is still in 
the balance 




Imran Khan's future with 
Sussex is still in the balance. 
The county want him to be 
available for all matches in 
1988 but the Pakistan all- 
rounder. who definitely can- 
not play for Sussex next year, 
is delaying his derision. 

Imran has appeared in all 
one day matches but only in a 
limited number of champion- 
ship games for the last two 
seasons. The Sussex player, 
aged 33, will not be available 
for Sussex next season because 
of Pakistan* tour of England. 

Sussex's chief coach, Stew- 
art Storey, said: “We would 
like him to have a full contract 
for 1988 but be may deride he 
has had enough.” 

Imran, who lakes bis benefit 
next season, said: “Next year 
i$ going to be the key and 1 
expect a derision will be made 
then. Sussex warn me for all 
cricket, bui after my stress 
fracture four years ago. 1 
realised 1 couldn’t play day-in 
and day-ouL” Imran added: ”Z 
hope that Sussex won't find 
me too old.”

Reprieve for 
Bishop after 
court appeal 

A relieved and tearfnl David 

Bishop left the Appeal Comrt 
to London yesterday, at liberty 
to play for Ptootypool ag««t 
Newport in the evening. He 
had much to be relieved about 
after hearing that his four- 
week prison sentence for as- 
sault, imposed earlier this 
month, had been suspended 
for a year. 

The scrum-half, 

who was capped by Wales 
against Australia in 1984, is 
able, therefore, to resume bis 
playing career subject only to 
any decision foe Welsh Rngby 
Union’s disciplinary commit- 
tee may recommend. Their 
next meetingis today though 
the Bishop affair is not known 
to be on their agenda; other- 
wise, the WRU made no 
comment, regarding foe case 

In many ways Powy^m 
the Welsh Rugby Umoo, ^

relieved that the Law Cents 
have “given back” the sen- 
tence to the narrow confines o| 
foe game itself- The short, 
sharp, shock which foe orig- 
inal sentence provided, not

Union generally, may - bat

Highly charged 

Certainly Pootypool believe 
they have been singled out in 
fois matter (though another 

action for foul play on foe field 
In England is currently being 
heard in the dvfi courts). Tony 
Simons, foe dub secretary, 
said yesterday: “We hare got 
different feelings about it in 
the area, but we nave all felt its 
not really a civil thing, its a 
rngby situation. And even last 
Saturday you could read 
about, say, Cardiff and Neath 
in a toe-to-toe situation.” 

as foe responsibility of the 
Law Courts. 

Bishop, aged 25, was sen- 
tenced at Newport Crown 
Coart at the beginning of this 
month to imprisonment after 
action taken by Chris Jarman, 
foe Newbridge lock who was 
injured by Bishop hi a dub 
game nearly a year ago. But 
Lord Justice NeuL sitting with 
Mr Justice Tudor Evans and 
Mr Justice Stoughton, in the 
Appeal Court yesterday, said 
the “charged atmosphere” of 
foe game bad been taken into 
account, as well as the punish- 
ment Bishop had already re- 
ceived in not being selected for 
Wales since the incident. 

“Bat those who achieve 
fame in this way and become 
stars of the game and become 
heroes in foe commonly do 
hare a responsibility to foe 
game, their fellow players and 
the public” Lord Justice NeiD 
said. “It is not for players, by 
their own action, to punish 
other players who they .think 
have been acting unfairly.” 

Afterwards Bishop said be 
was “happy and relieved” but 
that there was no cause for 
celebration. His counsel, Peter 
Griffiths, said: “What has 
happened to him has rattled 
the windows of every dub- 
house in the land. Bishop has 
beat humiliated. He has suf- 
fered enough, foe point has 
been made and I don’t think it 
will ever be forgotten.” 

The Pootypool Park crowd 
made no secret of their affec- 
tion for Bishop when be played 
against Ebbw Vale on Sat- 
urday, though as a vote of 
confidence it did not meet with 
universal approval elsewhere. 

Sport without some leaven- 
ing morality is no better than 
war; as my colleague Gerald 
Davies argued so eloquently in 
these columns last week, no- 
one wishes to emasculate 
rugby, but if individual and 
collective control cannot be 
imposed from within, then 
we should all take np 

It is not enough to say that 
the game should be left to 
regulate itself in an age where 
standards of persona/ morality 
and responsibility bave 
changed and, to my way of 
rtiwiriag, declined. Those who 
participate and those who 
administrate have a duty 
which they do not always 
observe to cast out players who 
seem unable to meet known 
disciplinary standards. 

Obviously players mature, 
some early some late, some oot 
at alL It is to be hoped that 
Bishop will remain aware of 
foe threat of pontshmeut 
which hangs over him and that 
he plays— and, importantly, is 
allowed by opposition players 
to play — for a future which 
may yet be bright. 

Hewitt in favour 

By George Ace 

John Hewitt, the Northern 
Ireland centre who was un- 
available for Ulster's match 
againsy the South of Scotland 
last weekend, has replaced 
Brendan Mullin in the Ireland 
under-25 team to meet a 
Canadian XV at Lansdowne 
Road on September 27.- 

And it is just possible that 
Hewitt will face the Canadians 
at Ravenhifl next Wednesday 
evening when they open their 
four-match tour in Ireland 
against Ulster. The Ulster side 
will be announced tomorrow. 

Should Hewitt be selected, 
it would be rough justice on 
Bill Harfrinson. who was 
outs tan din g against the South. 

With David Inwn, the other 
centre, displaying all his old 
fire and explosive running . in 
only his second full game since 
recovering from ligament 
damage to his right knee last 
November — originally 
thought to have ended his 

career — the selectors face a 
tricky problem. 

Two other places will be 
discussed at length: scrum half 
and loose head prop. Brady 
became obsessed with the 
tactic, which borders on 
gamesmanship, of running 
wide without the ball on the 
Ulster pul-in in an attempt to 
force a penalty for offside. 
Stephen Cowan, the under-25 
scrum half is the obvious 
replacement if the selectors 
decide a change is necessary. 
But Brady's track record is 
such that be deserves lo stay. 

Brian McKibbin's loose 
head spot will only be dis- 
cussed in the context that the 
man he replaced Peter Millar 
is back m action after a 
shoulder injury. McKibbin 
was the cornerstone of a solid 
scrum in Jedburgh and had an 
impressive game. Again, a 
tricky situation. Otherwise the 
side will almost certainly be 
that which lost by a late score 
lo the South of Scotland. 

On the books 

Ross Norman, New 
Zealand’s world No. 2 squash 
player, has been signed to play 
for Halifax this season in the 
premier Yorkshire league. 

Rampant South show 
no mercy to Japanese 

By David Hands 

South of Scotland - 



— 12 

It was not the most en- 
couraging of starts for the 
Japanese at Melrose yesterday 
even allowing for the experi- 
ence of the opposition. They 
lost to South of Scotland by 
five goals, three fries aad a 
penalty goal to three tries and 
will have to conjure up some 
answer to the driving back row 
play they are likely to en- 
counter throughout the Scot- 
tish half of their eight-match 

The first match to be played 
in the Borders by a Japanese 
side drew an appreciative 
crowd to foe Greenyards in 
the fading sunlight, among 
them Michael Weston, the 
c&azrmau of England’s selec- 
tors, who was taking an early 
look at a side who will 
conclude Their tour, sponsored 
by Toshiba, at Twickenham. 

The touring side too, may 
have appreciated the pic- 
turesque EiJdon Hills but not 
the second-minute penalty 
kicked by Dods after Mukai 
failed to release the ball in 
Munay’s tackle. The foil back, 
who may expect to appear in 
Scotland’s jersey against the 

The Japanese lineout ploys 
were reasonable effective but 
they found the big powerful 
South back row a handful, 
Paxton bursting away time 
and again with powerful sup- 
port from Turnbull. They 
needed the encouragement 
that Matsuo v from three pen- 
alty attempts, might have 
offered but the stand-off half 
was adrift, badly so the second 

Even though Konishi’s 
bund side break caught the 
South napping, the Japanese 
were not able to put players 
into space with any frequency. 
They fell further behind when 
Ker, a contender for the place 
at stand-off in the Scottish 
XV, broke dose to a scrum 
and sent Murray over. 

Any joy the Japanese may 
have felt when Konishi 
mpped over from his No. 8’s 
pick-up were dispelled when 
yie South worked the deserv- 
ing Paxton over to give his 
side a 19-4 interval lead. A
