Labour to put 
tax squeeze 
on top earners 


By Philip Webster, Chief Pofitkal Correspondent 
People earning more than 
,£500 a week face big tax 
increases early in the life of a 


'Labour government to pay for 
rises in benefits for pensioners 
and the unemployed, Mr Roy 
Hauers ley, shadow Chan- 
cellor of the Exchequer, 
yesterday. 

An emergency programme 
will be introduced under 
which the top 5 per cent of 
salary earners and dividend 
recipients will finance a £3 a 
week increase in child benefit, 
an £8 a week increase in 
pension fora married couple, 
and an extension of the long- 
term rate of supplementary 
benefit to people unemployed 1 
for more than a year. 

Mr Nigel Lawson, the 
Chancellor, claimed last night 
that Labour’s proposals would 
lead to anothtt brain drain. 

Taxes for well over one 
million people would be put 
up to at least 70 per cent if Mr 
Hattersley's proposals were 
enacted. The implementation 
of Labour's programme would 
mean higher taxes for every- 
one, he alleged. 

Mr Hattersley disclosed 
thatthe Shadow Cabinet has 
embarked on a study, to be 
completed before Christmas, 
to determine how the £3.6 
billion given by the Tory 
government to top earners can 
be clawed back. 

Taxes reduced or removed 
will not simply be reimposed

and reductions in tax allow- 
ances could take prefere n ce 
over increasing marginal 
rates. 

Speaking the day after Dr 
David Owen made the Social 
Democratic Party’s pro posals 
for tax reform the c e n trepi ece 
of its general election message, 
Mr Hattersley confirmed rhaf 
Labour's proposals would af- 
fect individuals, not families, 
earning more than £27,000 a 
year. 

Mr Hattersley said that the 
vast majority of the popular 
tion would not face a heavier 
tax burden. “Apart from the 
contribution paid by the high- 


Leading article

est 5 percent of salary earners 
and dividend recipients the 
general level of taxation will 
remain roughly what it is 
today.” 

But Mr Hattersley said In a 
BBC radio interview; -The 
richest 5 per cent of wage 
earners, salary earners and 
dividend recipients, the only 
people to have had tax cuts 
under this government in -the 
last seven years, will lose 
substantially.” 

Mr Hattersley said that the 
top 5 per cent of earners, in 
which he included himself 
(the shadow Chancellor re- 
ceives income from journal- 
ism on top ofhis MFs salary) . 
now paid a total annual lax 


bill which was almost £4 
billion lower than it was in 
1979. 

Mr Hattersley made clear 
thar his proposals were early 
commitments, and that there 
would be more fundamental 
changes. 

Labour spokesmen last 
night declined to put figures 
on the likely tax increases to 
be faced, although Mr Michael 
Meacher, chief spokesman on 
health and social services, 
estimated that anyone earning 
. £30,000 a year was £80 a week 
better off now than in 1979 

Mr Hattersley, however, 
ridiculed the Social Demo- 
cratic Party’s programme 
which he said could not 
possibly be unplernented. He 
said: “You cannot have a 
major shift of resources by 
asking comparatively poor 
people, those on £10,000 or a 
little more, to make a larger 
contribution to people farther 
down the income scale 

Mr Lawson, interviewed on 
BBC television last night, said 
Labour’s plans did not add up 
but it was dear that Labour 
was committed to putting 
taxes up. 

“Even if you take Mr 
Hattersley at his face value 
what he is saying he win do is 
for everybody over £500 a 
weekend that is well over one 
million peopte he wifi put 
their taxes up to something 
like 70 per cent. 


Sterling’s 
fall raises 
rates fears 

By David Smith 
Economics Correspondent 

, -The pound’ftil sharply yes- 
terday, prompting City fears 
of a rise in base rates. 

Sterling fell against most 
currencies, including the weak 
dollar, because of uncertain-! 
ties over Britain’s economic 
prospects and oil prices. 

The sterling index fell from 
m3 to 69.4 - below the 
previous record reached dur- 
ing the sterling crisis of early 
1985. when the Government 
pushed up interest rates by 4 
percentage points. 

Some City analysts fear a 
rise in rates to protect sterling. 
Money market interest rates 
rose by around a quarter of a 
point yesterday, and gilt- 
edged stocks fell by up to £2. 

The pound’s weakness was 
pronounced against the strong 
German mark. It fell six 
pfennigs to just below 
DM2.93 and 40 points to 
5 2.471 5 against a weak dollar. 

But the mark's rise push 
the dollar down four plena 
to DM1.99. It is the fast time 
since January 1981 that it has 
been below the DM2 (eveL 
Shares did not join in the 
general gloom yesterday; the 
FT 30-share index rose 4.4 
points to 1279.6, while the 
Dow Jones Industrial Average 
was up three points at 1,773 in 
eariv New York trading. 

The financial markets in 
New York are highly nervous 
and this is spilling over in 
particular to the gilt-edged 
market in London. 

Today on Wall Street the so- 
called “Triple Witching 
Hour,” occurs when the 
simultaneous expiry of index 
futures and options can have a 
big impact on the stock

Student 

Tories 

warned 

By Nicholas Wood 
Political Reporter 

Mr Norman Tebbit has let it 
be known that be is p repare d 
to wind up the Federation of 
Conservative Students unless 
it stops rocking the boat mid 
works within the Tory politi- 
cal tradition. 

The .Conservative Party 
chairman delivered his warn- 
ing at a meeting with Mr John 
Bercow, chairman of the 
14,000-member organization, 
which is based at Central 
Office. 

Mr Tebbit's indication 
came in tire wake of last 
month's ' damaging dispute 
over claims in the federation's 
magazine, New Agenda* that 
Lord Stockton was guilty of 
war crimes, which led to Mr 
Tebbit taking legal action 
against the magazine's editor, 
Mr Harry Phibbs. 

Mr Bercow backed the party 
chairman's tough line only to 
be accused of “setting out” by 
the ultra-right libertarians 
who dominate the federation's 
national committee. 

His meeting with Mr Tebbit 
came just before he was cen- 
sured by 16 votes to one by the 
committee for his robust de- 
fence of the steps taken against 
Mr Phibbs by the party hier- 
archy. 

Anticipating the vote of 
censure, Mr Bercow offered to 
resign his post. Mr Tebbit re- 
fused to accept it, saying he 
should stay on and try to per- 
suade his members to work for 
the good of the party. 

But the extreme libertar- 
ians, often hard to distinguish 
from anarchists, led by Mr 
Phibbs and Mr Steve Nichol- 
son, a federation vice-chair- 
man, remain determined to 
oust Mr Bercow. 


Rau and East Germans

Bonn - Heir Johannes Ran,

federal election next January,

fettfay by announcing that he 
had secured an East German 
promise 10 stop Ute flood of 

Third World asylum-seekers 


into West Berlin from October

Herr Rau said the East 
Germans had told his em- 
issary, Herr Egon Bahr, that 
from then only persons with 
valid visas for travel to West 
Germany would be allowed 
transit from East Germany or 
East Berlin to the West. 


Calm urged after Lebanon and Paris deaths

The gunman used a silencer.

responsibility. But Colonel

Summit still on, 
Soviet foreign 
minister says 

From Michael Binyon, Washington 


Mr Eduard Shevardnadze, 
the Soviet Foreign Minister, 
arrived in Washington yes- 
terday for two days of crucial 
talks and said a US-Soviet 
summit was still possible, but 
everything depended" on the 
Reagan Administration. . 

On the eve of his meeting 
with Mr George Shultz, the 
US Secretary of State, he said 
after arriving from New York: 
“We are ready. The question 
is already 50 per cent settled.” 

He said he was prepared to 
discuss the continued deten- 
tion in Moscow of Mr Nicho- 
las Daniloff the American 
journalist, with Mr Shultz, 
who has said he win make this 
the lop item on the agenda. Mr 
Shevardnadze thought dial a 
solution could be found to this 
and to the row over the US 
expulsion of Soviet diplomats 
from New York. 

“Such incidents have hap- 
pened before and may happen 
in the future. This is un- 
desirable, but unfortunately it 
does happen. On such occur- 
rences it is important that 
government leaders act wisely 
and with foresight, and that 
such incidents do not impede 
normal relations between 
states.” 

Mr Shevardnadze con- 


demned the expulsions of 25 
diplomats from the Soviet 
• mission to the UN. He de- 
scribed this as “illegal” and “a 
bad decision,” and said he 
.■might! use stronger language 
- after his talks with Mr Shultz. 

In a written statement, Mr 
Shevardnadze said he^, would 
be trying to gauge m Wash- 
ington US readiness to pursue 
the line which emerged after 
the last summit in Geneva. 

He also revealed for the first 
time that he is expecting to

Gorbachov is firm 
over Daniloff case 


Moscow (Renter) — Mr 
Gorbachov said yesterday that 
the Soviet Union would not 
let itself be provoked by 
reaction to the. case of Mr 
Nicholas Daniloff the US 
reporter, whom Moscow has 
accused of spying. 

The Soviet leader, speaking 
in the southern Russian region 
of Krasnodar, said the Dani- 
loff affair had been exploited 



Mr Gorbachov: we will not 
he provoked by reaction 


to sow haired against Moscow 
and to damage the Soviet 
image. 

It was his first public com- 
ment on the case since Mr 
Danfloff was seized by the 
KGB. Describing the reporter 
as “a spy who has been caught 
red-handed,” Mr Gorbachov 
said: “They want to call this a. 
run-of-the-mill affair. This is 
no run-of-the-mill business, 
espionage. 

“Bnt nevertheless, in com- 
parison with the whole of 
international policy and rela- 
tions — this whole com- 
plicated business — this is, of 
course, a common event. 

“But they have turned it 
around in such a way as to 
damage again and sow doubts 
about the Soviet Union’s pol- 
icy, to damage its image; the 
image which people, es- 
pecially in America, were 
beginning to put together — 
and simply to reap a harvest of 
hatred against us. They will 
not provoke us.” 


Brake on 
rise in 
jobless 

By David Smith 

Economics Correspondent 

Unemployment rose only 
slightly test month, and there 
are signs of a break in the 
strong upward trend which set 
in at the end of last year. 

The jobless-) total rose to 
2280,106 last month, an in- 
crease of 512 However; this 
does sotindnde 1 13,828 sum- 
mer school leavers, who did 
not become eligible for benefit 
until this month. 

The seasonally adjusted 
adult total, regarded as the 
best guide to unemployment, 
rose by 400, the smallest 
increase for nine months. 

The total of 3.223,600 
represented a new high but the 
Government took heart from 
the size of the increase. 

A change in unemployment 
of this size is regarded by 
officials as virtually no 
change. 

Thus, the Secretary of State 
for Employment, Lord Young 
of Graffham. said: “The num- 
ber of people unemployed last 
month remained unchanged, 
and this, following the small 
seasonally adjusted rise in 
July, gives some encourage- 
ment for the future. 

Department of Employ- 
ment officials estimate that 
the unemployment trend, pre- 
viously thought to be rising by 

10.000 to 15,000 a month, is 
now increasing at a more 
modest 5,000 to 10,000 
average. 

The main reason for this 
appears to be the expansion of 
the Community Programme 
and the nationwide Restart 
programme. These, in 
combination, may have cut 
unemployment by about 

5.000 last month. 

A leading City economist, 
Mr Giles Keating of Credit 
Suisse First Boston, predicted 
in a report published yes- 
terday that unemployment 
could fell by nearly half a 
million over the next 18 
months. 

But the Shadow Employ- 
ment Minister, Mr John Ev- 
ans, said: “Today's appalling 
figures are the ninth consec- 
utive record. They art an 
indictment of this Govern- 
ment.

The problem was that plan- 
ning regulations permit only a 
certain ratio of height to 
acreage. Their new building 
would be the fourth tallest on 
the Manhattan skyline and 
more than twice the permis- 
sible height.

from Grand Central Station, a

air to which its site entitles it 
under the new Zoning Code. 

Under this code Grand 
Cfemrai is allowed to sen “air 
rights” to properties that are 
adjacent, across the street or 
diagonally opposite. 

But the railway terminus is 
not that close to the First 
Boston ate, objected city plan- 
ners who are trying to reduce 
building density on the East 
Side. 

V 


The lawyers pointed to a 
clause which allows the trans- 
fer of air rights along a chain 
of ownership across several 
blocks. The planners coun- 
tered by saying Grand Central 
had broken the chain by its 
recent sale of the Biltmoreand 
Roosevelt Hotels. 

Then came the lawyers' 
masterstroke. Although the 
railroad sold the property it 
retained “sub-surface rights" 
to the land beneath, much of 
which includes railway tracks, 
they began. 


“Tbe concept of ownership 
ofland has changed in the past 
30 years,” Mr- Edward N 
Cosukyan, Boston Fust's law- 
yer, proclaimed yesterday. 

“Land ownership used to be 
considered two-dimensional. 
Now it's three-dimensionaL” 
If they owned the land be- 
neath. then it followed they 
owned the air above. 

The planners are horrified. 
If Mr Costikyan's argument 
holds water it will set a wide- 
ranging legal precedent.

The assassination 
French military attache in 
Beirut, following hard on 
Wednesday’s bomb attack in 
Paris, has convinced the Gov- 
ernment that it is not dealing 
with one, but several, terror- 
ists groups with possibly quite 
different aims, all operating 
under one name and using the 
same bombs. 

Until now, the Government 
has resisted the idea of a 
connection between tbe at- 
tacks on French forces and 
personnel in Lebanon and the 
bombings in Paris. But M 
Denis Baudouin, the Prime 
Minister's spokesman, said 
yesterday that it now looked 
as if there was “an inter- 
penetration of several groups, 
pursuing several aims”, at 
least one of which was to drive 
tbe French from Lebanon. 

In an Nation at the funeral 

24, who died trying to defasea 
bomb at tbe Pub Renault on 
the Champs-Efysees last week, 
M Jacques Chirac, the Prime 
Minister, called for “calm, 
dignity and courage”, in the 
face of the latest attacks. 

President Mitterrand, who 
is on a three-day official visit 
to Indonesia, adopted the 
same kind of determined tone 
when be said in a tdevized 
message on Wednesday night 
that France would continue to 
“fight the terrorists without 
mercy”, and called on tbe 
French people “to grit their 
teeth” and get on with their 
normal daily lives, as he had 
done. - • 

The two men-; believed to 
have - been responsible for 


throwing the bomb at the Tati 
clothing store, near Mont- 
parnasse, on Wednesday, have 
been identified by police after 
being recognized in photo- 
graphs by eyewitnesses. 

Five people died and 53 
were injured in tbe attack, 
including 18 seriously. A five- 
year-old child is among those 
seriously injured. 

One of tbe two men has 
been named as Emile Ibrahim 
Abdullah, a brother of Geor- 
ges Ibrahim Abdullah, the 
imprisoned leader of the Leba- 

lsraeli helicopter gmtships

east of Sidon after gunmen

ert, was responsible for the last 
week's attack at a cafeteria at 
La Defense, despite his dra- 
matic reappearance at a press 
conference in Tripoli, north- 
ern Lebanon, on Wednesday. 

The second man believed to 
have been involved in the Tati 
shop attack has been named as

Inquest praise for two 
stewardess heroines 


BylfevidSapsted 


Two stewardesses paid with 
their lives by staying behind to 
help passengers escape from 
the blazing Boeing 737 during 
last summer’s Manchester 
Airport disaster. 

The inquest on the 55 vic- 
tims of the tragedy was told 
yesterday that Jacqueline Urb- 
anslti, aged 27, and Sharon 
Fond, aged 23, could have 
escaped when the British 
Airlours jet was evacuated. 

Instead, they stayed to assist 
ile trapped by smoke and 
les in tiie rear of the plane. 


“The two stewardesses were 
seen attempting to calm the 
whole desperate situation.” 
said Det Supt David James, 
who carried out the detailed 
investigation into the disaster 
on flight KT328. 

“They, above all, could 
have moved quickly forward 
and evacuated safely from the 
aircraft but they remained in 
the rear doing what they could 
for passengers and, unfortu- 
nately, perished. 

“Their action must not be 
forgotten,” he said.

of the Electrical, Electronic 
Telecommunications and 
Plumbing Union employed in 
the electrical contracting in- 
dustry yesterday voted 
overwhelmingly to accept 
pace-setting pay rises more 
than four times the rate of 
inflation, now running at 2.4’ 
percent. 

The agreement has dealt, a 
blow to government hopes of 
keeping the economy on 
course by controlling wage 

rises. 

With many unions, includ- 
ing the miners, poised to make 
their claim s for th e next pay 
round, the EEPTU disclosed 
that its members in the 
contracting section had voted, 
by three to one to accept a deal 
which will give them, from 
next January, rises ranging 
between 8.5 and 10.7 percent 

The two-year deal will be 
topped up with more than 6 
per cent extra in January 1988. 
For union members in the 
industry, the rises mean a big

Stewardesses died in 

battle to save trapped 
passengers on blaze jet 

D nu^ r«* - -- -«■ 


THE TIMES FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 19 1986 


flUMC INC. wo 


Tbe two stewardesses who 

a£?J« - blazin ® British 

JSSS*L B °ttng 737 in the 
Manchester airport disaster 
jast summer gave their lives 
attempting to save passenam 
the inquest on the 55vS^ 
was told yesterday. 

. iT'Sy could have escaped 
the fames by joining the 
evacuation of the aircraft but 
Miss Jacqueline Urban ski 
aged 27. and Miss Sharon 
Ford, aged 23. stayed behind 
to help passengers trappedat 
the back of the smoke-filled 
cabin. 

The inquest had beard little 
or the fete of the two rear 
stewardesses in nine days of 
evidence, but yesterday Det 
Supi David James, who ear- 
ned out the detailed investiga- 
tion of the events on board 
flight KT328, explained how 
. they died. 

They had managed to open 
a rear door and deploy escape 
chutes, but the rear of the 
aircraft was engulfed in smoke 
and flames so quickly it could 
not be used. 

t “The two stewardesses were 
seen attempting to calm the 
whole desperate situation. 
They, above all others, could 
have moved quickly forward 
and evacuated safely from the

aircraft, but they, remained in 
the rear doing what they could 
for passengers and unfortu- 
nately perished 

“Their action must not be 
forgotten." 

Mr James said that their 
actions had been as 
commendable and pro- 
fessional as those displayed by 
their colleagues who survived, 
Miss Joanna Toff and Mr 
Arthur Bradbury, the purser, 
whose actions have already 
been praised by Mr Robert 
GorodJtin, the coroner,. 

Mr James also disclosed 
that the identities of the men 
who knew that valves control- 
ling supplies to airport water 
hydrants nearest the burning 
plane had been turned oft; 
were known but the coroner 
had seen no purpose in calling 
them to give evidence. 

The inquest was also told 
yesterday that the provision of 
old fashioned wind socks on 
airfields would help pilots in 
assessing accurately wind 
speed and direction. 

Since the accident British 
Airways pilots have been told 
to take wind, no matter how 
slight into effect when making 
emergency stops. In the Man- 
chester accident the aircraft 
came to a hall partially cross-

Mr Donald Craig. British ! 
Airways chief engineer for, 
technical and quality services, 
told the inquest that the 
airline had received letters 
from the engine makers, Pratt 
& Witney, about possible 
problems in the combustion 
chamber of their JTSD type of 
engine fitted to the Boeing 

But it had been thought not 
to apply to the British Airways 
fleet because its engines were 
equipped with improved 
combustion cans. It was the 
eventual failure of one of 
those cans which started the 
disastrous explosion at 
Manchester. 

“We felt they applied to a 
totally different standard of 
cans and it would not happen i 
to os. We felt we had the I 
situation under control," Mr 1 
Craig said. 

He said that although the 
airline had a large number of 
complaints about the perfor- 
mance of the engine they were 
not regarded as serious or 
affecting safety or indicative 
of much more severe prob- 
lems within the combustion 
chamber. He said British Air- 
ways still regarded the engine 
as the best in the world. 

Minor rectifications had al- 
ways cured, the problems in 
the past. 

Since the accident however 
British Airways had' in- 
troduced a new regime of 
maintenance and engine 
checking which had involved 
the development of X-ray and 
fibre optic examination. . 

Mr Craig said be believed 
the fetal, 360° crack in the 
combustion can in the port 
engine had been instanta- 
neous. He denied that British 
Airways bad ever taken 
chances with safety. 

The inquest was adjourned 
until today when the jury will 
retire to consider its verdict 


‘Very good 
value’ 
from NHS 

By Our Science 
Correspondent 

The National Health Ser- 
vice has an “Outstanding" 
record of value for mohey, and 
relatively small amounts of 
extra cash could restore public 
confidence in it and boost staff 
morale, according to a report 
published today. 

The report. Agenda for 
Health, by the Association of 
the British Pharmaceutical 
Industry, says the NH S is 
sometimes unfairly criticized. 

St challenges some of the 
findings of a recent study that 
Britain is the “sick man of 
Europe". 

Britain has succeeded in 
achieving basic health stan- 
dards comparable with those 
of similar countries, the report 
says. Death rates from heart 
disease have fallen in Britain, 
hot not as rapidly as in the 
United States or Australia. 

Life expectancy in Britain is 
in line with France. West 
Germany and the Unites 
States, at just over 70 years for 
men, and just under 80 years 
for women. It is only margra- 
atly inferior to Japan and 
Scandinavian countries, 
according to the report. 

-These overall indicators 
cast into considerable doubt 
extreme claims of relative 
British failure in the health 
field." 

However, there _ are 
-disturbing" variations m ill- 
ness and death between social 
groups, and the impwt 
poverty and unemployment on 
health cannot be overlooked. 

The report is available from 
the ABPI, 12 Whitehall, Lon-

Reports dash on 
pill’s cancer risk 

By Thomson Prentice, Science Correspondent 

Women who take the the longer women use the pill 
ntraceptive pill are today beyond seven years, and be- 


contraceptive pill are today 
being advised to stay on it as 
: conflicting evidence emerges 
about possible links with 
breast cancer. 

Research in Norway and 
Sweden has shown a two-fold 
risk increase among women 
who have taken the contra- 
ceptive for as long as 12 years, 
and a smaller threat to some 
women who have used the pill 
for eight or more years. 

The study gives rise to 
concern, and if its findings are 
substantiated, the implica- 
tions would be very serious, 
medical experts said 
yesterday. 

But a separate study, also 
published today, shows no 
link between the pill and 
breast cancer.The conflicting 
evidence has prompted The 
Lancet and the British Medi- 
cal Journal, which publish the 
studies today, to advise 
women not to change Grom 
oral contraceptives. 

The chairman of the gov- 
ernment Committee on Safety 
of Medicines, Dr Abraham 
Goldberg, has given the same 
advice in a letter to both 
journals. 

Health experts are clearly 
anxious to prevent another 
“pill scare", such as occurred 
three years ago when other 
evidence of a cancer link 
emerged. It resulted in up to 
half a million women stopping 
the pill and a consequent rise 
in unwanted pregnancies and 
abortions. 

The latest research from 
Scandinavia involved more 
than 400 women who had 
newly-diagnosed developed 
.breast cancer. It suggests that 


fore the birth of a first child, 
the more they are at risk of 
developing the disease before 
they reach the menopause. 

However, a study of a 
similar number of women in 
New Zealand, also newly di- 
agnosed as having the disease, 
concludes that there is no 
increased risk of the disease 
among pill takers. 

The researchers say the 
study provides "strong i 
evidence" against the hypoth- 
esis that use of oral contra- 
ceptives at young ages 
increases the risk. , 

The conflicting results of ! 
the two studies could be 
explained by different meth- 
ods of gathering data, editori- 
als in the two medical journals 
say today. “Neither of the new 
studies gives any indication of 
the types of pill used, and 
therefore we have no idea 
whether the results are rele- 
vant to our own current 
practice", the journal says. 

“The feci that one of these 
studies shows a possible 
association of oral contra- 
ceptives with breast cancer 
provides a powerful reason for 
trying to find out more. 

-We cannot say with any 
certainty that the pill used for 
Jong periods early in reproduc- 
tive life is, or is not associated 
with a change in the risk of 
breast cancer. 

-While this uncertainty re- 
mains, there is no reason to 
change our prescribing habits 
or our advice to women using 
the pill." 

Dr Goldberg also cues a 
much bigger American study 
which failed to find any link 
with cancer.

Broadcasting industry 


IB A urges longer 
franchise terms 


The Independent 
Broadcasting Authority has 
asked the Government to 
extend current ITV franchises 
for four years and then to 
introduce a system which will 
last for 12 years and can be 
automatically renewed. 

The IBA claims that the 
four-year extension to the 
present contracts is essential 
to keep options open for the 
incoming government after 
the next election to make 
changes in the broadcasting 
system. Current franchises ex- 
pire at the end of 1989. 

The Home Office is under- 
stood to have offered a iwo- 
ycar extension, but Mr John 
Whitney, the IBA director- 
general. said that this would 
not be enough time to pul a 
new franchising policy in 
place and could result in 
disruption and destabilization 
of the television system. 

Under a 12-year deal, com- 
panies would have their con- 
tracts renewed almost 
automatically, provided they 
had met their public service 
obligations. 


The IBA is opposed to the 
idea of the Peacock committee 
that franchises be awarded by 
competitive lender. If the bids 
were too high, programme 
standards would suffer and 
the system would give the 
Government a direct financial 
interest. 

• Television is persistently 
sexist in its portrayal of 
women but there is no conclu- 
sive evidence that public atti- 
tudes are affected, according 
to an IBA study published 
yesterday. 

Dr Barrie Gunter, an IBA 
research officer, found that 
women are outnumbered by 
men on television. 

The implication of s«-roJe 
stereotyping lies with the pos- 
sible impact on the public's 
beliefs about men and women, 
with the greatest concern for 
the effects on children. Dr 
Gunter reported.

£100m for 
satellite 
TV shows 

Ely Teresa Poole 

BSB. one of the five con- 
sortia competing for the sat- 
ellite television franchise; 
yesterday undertook to spend 
at least £100 million on pro- 
grammes in the first year of 
operation. It predicted that 
almost a third of Britain's 
homes with television would 
own a receiving dish after six 
years of satellite broadcasting. 

Mr Andrew Quinn, project 
co-ordinator, said by the end 
of the 15-year franchise period 
BSB would be investing 
"considerably more" on pro- 
grammes than BBC television 
— which now spends more 
than £400 million a year. 

“Through the offer of a new 
and attractive programme ser- 
vice viewers will have to be 
persuaded in large numbers 
and very quickly to reinvest in 
television," he said. 

B$B believes die retail price 
for the receiving equipment — 
including the 18 inch dish — 
will be £199. 


Living standards 
best for 12 years 


By Michael Horsnell 


Britons have not had it so 
good — provided they are in 
employment and have a mort- 
| gage — for at least the past 12 
years. 

A combination oflower tax 
burdens, cheaper mortgages 
and foeL and steady shop 
prices means that income 
needs to have risen by only 1.2 
per cent this year to have kept 
pace with overall costs com- 
pared with the previous 12 
months. . 

This is the lowest figure ever 
reported in the Cost of Living 
Report by Reward Regional 
Surveys, the pay research and 
advisory company who have 
conducted authoritative sur- 
veys since 1974. 

The story is less satisfying 
for femilies living in council 
houses for whom there has 
been an average 9.4 per cent 
increase in rents and rates. 

The survey found that 

• A family living in a council 
bouse earning about the na- 
tional average of £8300 a 
year, which has consequently 
been relieved of 0.1 per cent of 
its tax burden in the past 12 
months, needs a pay rise of 4.3 
per cent to keep pace with the 
costs of last year, 

• A family with a mortgage of 
£26,000 and an income of 
£13,000 (tax down by 5.5 per 
cent) needs an increase of 0.2 
percent. 

• A family with a mortgage of 
£40,000 and an income of 
£21,000 (tax down by 5.9 per 
cent) could have endured a 0.6 
per cent decrease this year to 


maintain the same standards. 

• A family with a mortgage of 
£55.000 and an income of 
£57,000 (tax down by 1.7 per 
cent) needs an increase of 0.5 
percent. 

Direct taxation has been 
reduced by 4.1 per cent and 
the mortgage interest rate 
from 14 to 1 1 per cent in the 
period surveyed while the 
biggest gains have been among 
middle wage earners. 

During the past 10 years a 
wide variation in shop price 
rises is reported: potatoes are 
unchanged; carrots, bacon, j 
pork, soup, and biscuits are I 
only about 85 per cent more 
expensive; eg*s. lamb, butter 1 
apples and oranges show an 
average 120 per cent increase: 
but aspirins cost 264 per cent 
more than 20 yeara ago and 
tea 333 percent. 

Watching a football match 
costs 250 per cent more than 
in 1976 but the cost of a 
television set costs a tiny 
fraction less than in those 
days — about £2 on average. 

Mr Bill Couldrey, managing 
director of Reward Regional 
Surveys, told The Times yes- 
terday: “When you ally costs 
to pay rises it is right to say 
Britain has not had it so good 
at least in the past 12 years. 
People are definitely better 
off The increase in pay for 
exceeds the increase in living 
standards. But we are only 
talking about people in 
employment and those with 
mortgages.” 


Increase in 
home 
ownership 

By A Stall Reporter 

The average family has 1 .8 
children and lives in a house 
increasingly likely to boast a 
video recorder and a home 
computer. 

The latest household survey 
conducted by the Office of 
Population Censuses and Sur- 
veys. which runs a continuous 
analysis of the way we live, 
shows that 61 per cent of 
families own their own home 
compared with 49 per cent in 
1971. 

Of all households 31 per 
cent amuse themselves wiih 
home videos and 13 per cent 
allow their lives to be at least 
partly regulated by home 
computers. 

The average size of house- 
l holds in 1985 was 2.56 per- 
sons compared with 2.91 in 
1971 representing a decline 
due mainly to an increase in 
the proportion of people livi ng 
alone, which now stands at 24 
percent. 

The proportion of families 
headed by a lone parent, 
mainly femate. has risen from 
8 to 14 percent in the past 15 
years, due to the increasing 
divorce rate. 

Ninety-five per cent of the 
population is white but their 
average age is greaterthan that 
of the ethnic minorities. While 
22 per cent of whites are aged 
under 15. 48 per cent of 
Pakistanis and Bangladeshis 
are in that age group as are 34 
percent oflndians and 27 per 
cent of West Indians.

Flour power 


Without land the hungry cannot feed 
themselves, let alone grow a surplus for export. 

Yet they are increasingly being deprived of land 
by more powerful interests. 

Christian Aid’s appeal, this harvest time is to 
give the poor the power to support themselves, 
and enjoy harvests not handouts. 

By aiding projects which enable them to retain 
and develop their land; 

by providing legal aid which establishes their 


rights u nder local law; 

by helping them secure the best yields; 
by setting up local cooperatives for peasant 
farmers to share in the export market. 

The poor have an enormous potential to create 
peace and plentiful harvests for everyone’s benefit 
They need the power to use it

Longer life 
for nuclear 
power plants 
expected 

By Pearce Wright, Science Editor 


. British nuclear power sta- 
tions now coming into opera- 
tion could last more than six 
years longer than their allotted 
30-y car span if a development 
that reduces radiation damage 
to their building materials is 
used, researchers have found. 

Such a move would make 
decisions on new plant less 
urgent. 

The development is outr 
lined in the annual report of 
the United Kingdom Atomic 
Energy Authority, published 
yesterday. 

The 30-year lifetime was 
chosen for the present Ad- 
vanced Gas-Cooled Reactors, 
or AGRs. because the strength 
of the materials used to build 
them was impaired by con- 
stant radiation bombardment. 

Mr Arnold Allen, chairman 
of the authority, who outlined 
the details of the develop- 
ment, also defended the 
nuclear industry against argu- 
ments for phasing out nudear 
power. 

He said: “Halting the 
development of nuclear power 
because of the Chernobyl 
nuclear accident would have 
dire consequences for future 
generations. 

“The world's reserves of oil, 
gas and coal are limited and 
there is at present no prospect 
of renewable energy sources 
such as solar energy or 
windpower being developed 
on a scale or at a cost that 


would permit more than a 
small contribution to the 
world problem. 

“The only alternative 
source of energy known to be 
available on the scale needed 
and on the timescale required 
is nuclear power, making use 
of the world's uranium 

resources." 

He added that the 
authority's technical experts 
were stm analysing the events 
leading to the Chernobyl ac- 
cident, which had also 
prompted a review of the 
training of operators 

Mr Allen said that the 
authority had an extensive 
development programme in 
the management and disposal 
of radioactive wastes. 

Referring to the search by 
Nirex, the radioactive waste 
management organization of 
which the authority is a mem- 
ber. for possible disposal sites, 
be said: “I understand the 
concern aroused among res- 
idents at these locations, but 1 
believe their anxieties about 
the environmental impact to 
be quite misplaced. 

“It is in everyone's interests 
to get on with the construction 
of a disposal site for low-level 
wastes." 

Mr Allen said: “We remain 
concerned about the mora- 
torium on sea dumping of 
waste, which we believe could 
be a wholly safe and economic 
method of disposal." 


Electricity 
fiddle led 
to death 

A couple's plan to cheat on 
their electricity bills went 
tragically wrong when a neigh- 
bour was killed, an inquest 
was told yesterday. 

Mr Neil Shears and his wife, 
Linda, kept their bills low by 
feeding a cable to a next door 
flat which had its bills paid by 
the Department of Health and 
Social Security. 

But the cable became faulty 
and the flat's occupant. Mrs 
Sharon Mead, aged 27. was 
killed by an electric shock 
while making a cup of tea, the 
inquest at Exeter, Devon, was 
told. 

Mr Martin Thornton, the 
deputy assistant coroner, re- 
corded a verdict of mis- 
adventure. - 

Mr Thornton said that Mr 
and Mrs Shears, of Merlin 
Crescent, Exeter, had an 
arrangement with Mrs Mead 
to utilize her electricity supply 
when they wanted to use their 
washing machine. 

"The cable was stretched 
between the two flats so it 
could be done at the expense 
of the DHSS rather than the 
Shears's," he said. 

The inquest was told that 
the flats had been rewired by 
Exeter City Council a few days 
before Mrs Mead's death on 

July l0 - , 

But after the workman had 
left, the cable was put back in 
position but became puno 
lured at two points and came 
into direct contact with the 
mewl window frame, Mr 
Thornton said. "It became a 
death trap and tragedy struck 
when Mrs Mead made a cup ot 

lL ^ie said that Mrs Mead's 
fingers touched die window 
frame. 

Earlier the inquest heard 
claims from Mrs Mead s for- 
mer husband that bad rar- 
ing of the flat was responsible 
for the death, but this was 
rejected bv the coroner. 

• Mr Cyril Passmore, a 
South-West Electricity Board 
official, saidjhattf the wm- 
dow frame had been earthed 
the death would not have 
happened. 


Jet hijack 
inquest 
opened 

An inquest was opened at 
Hornsey, north London, yes- 
terday into the death of one of 
the victims of the Pan Am jet 
hijacking in Pakistan on Sep- 
tember 5. 

He was Mr Surendra Paid, 
aged 50, an American systems 
analyst living in Williams- 
burg, Fullerton, California. 

Dr Susan Claydon, a 
pathologist, said the cause of 
death was haemorrhage due to 
gunshot wounds. 

Hie inquest is being held m 
London because bis family 
wants Mr Patel cremated in 
this country. The coroner, Mr 
Bernard Pearl, adjourned the 
hearing to a date to be fixed. 

Shot PC was 
under scrutiny 

A police officer found shot 
dead at his home on Wednes- 
day was the subject of an 
inquiry, it was disclosed 
yesterday. 

Bui West Mercia police 
refused to release details of the 
inquiry concerning PC Ed- 
ward South, aged 24. of Goose 
Hill Close, Redditch, Her- 
eford and Worcester.

Drive for pilots 


BA recruits 1,200 
to end lost decade 

By Harvey Elliott, Air Correspondent 


British Airways is to begin 
recruiting pilots for ihe first 
lime in 10 years. At feast 1.200 
new pilots will be needed by 
the airline by the end of the 
century and they will be taken 
on at the rate of about 100 
every year. 

The recruits, men or women 
aged between 18 and 23, will 
be trained at a new school 
being opened by British Aero- 
space at Prestwick in 
Scotland. 

The recruitment drive will 
bring to an end the “lost 
decade" when thousands of 
young people desperate to 
become airline pilots had no 
prospect of finding a job. 

British Airways is setting up 
an advanced selection process 
.to select the best applicants 
from the many thousands who 
are expected to apply. Basic 
entry qualifications will be at 
least two A levels, preferably 
mathematics and physics, and 
five O levels. 

Advertisements will be 
placed for the recruits early 
next year and training will 
begin in early 1988. 

At the end of the 69-week 
course, which will cost British 
Airways £50,000 for every 
new entrant, the airline will 
then train them to “convert" 
on to their own fleet of jets. 

Once on the payroll the new 
pilots will be able to eam 
about £14,000 a year with 
incentive payments and that 


could rise to nearly £40,000 
when they become senior 
captains. 

The last pilots to be trained 
from scratch by British Air- 
ways left the College of Air 
Training at Hamble in 1979. 
Since then British Airways, 
like other airlines around the 
world, has had loo many- 
qualified pilots and had to lay- 
off more than 200. 

But today they are back to 
full establishment although 
the average age of the pilots is 
now 40 with even the youngest 
being in their mid-30s. 

The new recruitment drive 
is almost certain to produce 
another first — a BA woman 
pilot. 

Those who arc chosen for 
the new course will use the 
very latest technology pro- 
vided by British Aerospace 

The company plans to buy 
about 30 aircraft, both twin 
engine and single engine, on 
which to train the recruits. 

It then hopes to auract other 
customers as the world de- 
mand for pilots picks up again 
and to capture a number of 
contracts to train military 
pilots too. 

Bui meanwhile British Air- 
ways will face an almost 
immediate shortage of pilots 
and will be advertising for 100 
qualified professionals from 
both civil and military avi- 
ation to join the airline in the 
. autumn of next vear.

United fiaiis Sady a " commCTMl lank 


resounding triumpC^^caz^ 
uyated a meeting of both 
houses of Congress yesterday 
wun an emotional speech in 
which she issued a firm ul- 
timatum to the communist 
insurgents to lay down their 
arms. 

She thanked America for 
tiiree happy years spent in 
exile with her children and 
murdered husband, Benigno, 
calling him “the sacrificethat 
answered prayers for 
freedom'’. 

Wearing an outfit of bright 
yellow, , the colours of her 
presidential campaign, she 
went on to attack the 
“slavery” of her country's $26 
billion (£17.5 billion) external 
debt 

“No sooner is one stone laid 
than two are taken away,” she 
said. “Half our export earn- 
ings, $2 billion out of $4 
billion, which is all we can 
earn in the restricted markets 
of the world, must go to pay 
just the interest of a debt 
whose benefit the Filipino 
people never received.” 

Since Mrs Aquino arrived 
on Monday, the US has 
announced aid of $150 mil- 
lion in addition to $350 
million already approved.

From A Correspondent

The Argentine Govern- 
ment. in a formal appeal to the 
Supreme Court has asked for 
stiffer sentences against the 
nine former military com- 
manders convicted of human 
righls violations during the 
fight against terrorism during 
the 1976-1983 dictatorship. 

In his appeal, the Attorney 
General, Sehor Juan Octavio 
Gauna. said the court had 
been “arbitrary” 

In its verdict of December 
last year, the court handed 
down life sentences to the, 
former President, Jorge 
Videla, and to Admiral Emilio

Roberto Viola, a former Presi- 
dent during the military 
dictatorship; eight years to 
Admiral Armando Lambrus- 
chini: and 41 b ycais to Briga- 
dier-General Ramon Agosti. 

The prosecution had also 
asked for 15-year jail sen- 
tences for another former 
President, Lieutenant-General 
Lcopoldo Galtieri, and Briga- 
dier-General Omar Grassigna; 
12 years for Admiral Jorge 
Anaya; and 10 years for 
Brigadier-General Basilio 
Lami Dozo. All four were 
acquitted. 


The US has been delighted 
by Mrs Aquino’s position on 
two big American military 
bases in the Philippines. 

She has reaffirmed that 
agreements for the bases 
would be respected until 1991, 
although a review would occur 
as scheduled in 1988- Yes- 
terday she proclaimed^ “new 
beginning” for relations with 
the US. 

But it was her bluntness 
about the deb! run up under 
the government of Mr Ferdi- 
nand MarCOS t hat ftnminaffrl

“Many conditions imposed 
on the previous government 
that stole this debt continue to 
be imposed on us . . . and no 
assistance or liberality com- 
mensurate with the calamity 
that was visited on us has been 
extended. 

“Yet ours must have been

With little help from others, 
we Rhpinos fulfilled the first 
and most difficult condition of 
the debt negotiation — the full 
restoration of democracy and 
responsible government.” 

Referring to the communist 
threat, she said: “1 will not 
stand by and allow an insur- 
gent leadership to spurn our 
offer of peace and kill our 
young soldiers and threaten 
our new freedom. Yet I must 
explore the path of peace to 
the utmost" 

US officials have gone out 
of their way to praise Mrs 
Aquino's handling of the com- 
munist threat 

The Administration is em- 
barrassed by earlier public 
criticism that she was not 
taking a tough enough stand 
against the insurgency, a criti- 
cism Mrs Aquino said she 
would ignore unless it was 
made face to face to her.

Israel hits back for 
attack on allies 


From Robert Fisk, Beirut 


Israeli helicopter gunships 
were repotted to be rocketing 
Lebanese guerrillas in the 
foothills of the mountains east 
of Sidon yesterday alter anti- 
Israeli gunmen bad made their 
most devastating attack to 
date on Israel's proxy “South 
Lebanon Army” militia. 

Up to 75 men, including 
members of the Islamic Resis- 
tance — the usual name 
adopted in southern Lebanon 
by the Hezbollah (Parry -of 
God) movement — and the • 
Lebanese Communist: Party, 
had stormed into fbqr SLA 
positions, killing at least eight 
militiamen before retreating 
down the slopes below the ■ 
village of Jarioua. 

Twelve of them captured 
two SLA men but were forced 
to release them when they 


were apparently surrounded 
by SLA reinforcements. 

According to Lebanese 
journalists in Sidon, the 12 
were still under attack last 
night by Israeli helicopters as 
they made their way down the 
mountainside in the dusk. 

It was the fourth guerrilla 
attack on the SLA in a week 
and came only a day after Mr 
Uri Lubrani, the Israeli ad- 
viser on Lebanon, claimed 
that the SLA would increase 
its military operations outside 
the Israeli occupation zone if 
guerrilla raids continued. 

In what was presumably 
retaliation for the attack, 
shells from artillery in the 
mountains, fired either by 
SLA men or by Israeli troops, 
fell across 15 Shia Muslim 
villages south-east of Sidon. 


Chernobyl design error 


Moscow (Reuter) — The 
Chernobyl nuclear power sta- 
tion was designed by experts 
in hydro-electric plants un- 
familiar with nuclear reactors, 
Pravda said yesterday. 

In a report on a tour of the 
plant, the newspaper criticized 
the reactor’s designers for 
having foiled to foresee the 
possibility of the safety viola- 


tions which led to the worst 
nuclear accident on April 26. 

“In this the construction 
designers made a certain 
error,” h said. 

Pravda said that clearing 
radioactive debris from the 
power station roof was posing 
difficulties, since remote-con- 
trolled machines were hard to 
operate there.

nate moments. “Maggie 
described as ,deiermtned-

h but sensible, unyielding 


but at the same time tactful. 

Even her weaknesses turn 
out to be nothing more than 
cunningly camouflaged vir- 
tues. The author on the Prime

Thatcher was aware that she 
could hardly compete with the

Conservative politicians. 

“So she never tried to dazzle 
anybody with her speeches, 
even during the election cam- 
paign. Her speeches might 
have been boring, but they 
were short and to the point 
and thus her lack of oratorical 
gifts turned into a real asset” 

Mr Zalewski considers that 
before the Falkiands conflict 
she was probably ..the most 
unpopular head of govern- 
ment in the West, “blit her

her to the status of the

unemployment A speech to a 
Conservative conference in 
Brighton, in which she regret- 
ted the human waste of un- 
employment, was “nothing 
more than a flirtation with

not. because it turned out that 
she was right in her unyielding 
defence of economic policy.

proved correct Of course, 
unemployment did not go 
away. But is Mrs Thatcher 
realty to take aU the blame for 
the doubling of unemploy- 
ment figures between May 
1979 and May 1983? 

In a sense, yes. On the other 
hand, only about 25 per cent 
of people polled in December 
1982 blamed Mrs Thatcher. 


Fear and cold fury after deadly attack 



M Chirac, the French Prime Minister, inspecting medals awarded posthumously to Jean-Louis B retail, the policeman 
killed in Sunday's bomb blast, in the presence of his parents during a ceremony at Paris police headquarters. 


From Diana Geddes 
Paris 

There is not yet panic, but 
there is fear. Wednesday's 
bomb attack on the Tati 
dothes store near Mont- 
parnasse has changed the 
climate in the French capital 
noticeably. 

Not only because it was the 
most deadly of the recent 
attacks, with fire dead and 53 
injured, but because for the 
first time the bomb was thrown 
from a passing car. 

Nothing can prevent an 
attack like that. Not the visas, 
spot checks, military border 
patrols, armed police, body 
searches, nor any other mea- 
sures in the Government's new 
anti- terrorist arsenaL And the 
people are afraid. They know 
that the Government can do 
nothing, and they know that 
the attacks will continue. 

The hfarishite n a tiff y rtf 

the bombing adds to the fear. * 
There seems no rhyme or 
reason in the chosen targets — 
a Metro, a post-office, a caffi, a 
police headquarters, a cut- 
price clothing store — save to 


demon stra te the Impotence of 
the Ftench security forces and 
to spread panic by kilting and 
maiming as many innocent 
people as possible. 

All one can do is to try to 
avoid going anywhere where 
there might be crowds. In 
recent days there has been a 
noticeable drop in the number 
of people on the Mdtro during 
rash hoar, shopping in the big 
department stores, dining in 
the more popular restaurants, 
going to the cinema, or attend- 
ing mass spectacles like inter- 
national football matches. 

The endless wailing of po- 
lice and ambulance sirens 
timragbont the city adds to the 
feeling of insecurity. Is it 
another bomb, or just a false 
alarm? How many dead and 
iqinred this time? 

Penple are beginning to talk 
of friends or family who were 
near the scene of an attack, or 
had been there minutes before. 

It makes it all rather too 
close for comfort Will they be 
next? Terrorism is the topic on 
everyone's lips. It has pushed 
into the background politics. 


with its endless petty rivalries 
and co-habitational nps and 
downs. For the moment the 
country has forgotten its 
political differences and is 
united behind the Cabinet and 
what it is trying to do. 

Fear has turned not to panic, 
but to anger and grim 
determination to fore even' 
worse attacks, rather than give 
in to the terrorists. Not a 
single voice has been heard 
suggesting that Georges Ibra- 
him Abdallah, the jailed ter- 
rorist whose release the 
bombers are demanding, 
shook! be set free 

On the contrary, even some 
of the mildest, most anti- 
capital punishment French- 
men are now suggesting that 
he should rather be “quietly 
bumped off”. 

“You know, madame,” a 
middle-aged shopkeeper said, 
“I'm totally opposed to die 
death penalty. I can't bear 
trilling animals, let alone 
humans. But if I were the 
Government, I would go ahead 
and bomb the foreign capitals 
responsible for all this. And I 


pity the first bomber the police 
lay their hands on. It would be 
better not to know what they'll 
do to him”. 

The Paris streets, never 
known for their absence of 
policemen, are now positively 
crawling with armed security 
of all kinds. Bags are checked 
before entry to most establish- 
ments. Some have even started 
body searches. 

A few weeks ago that would 
have provoked violent pro- 
tests. But no one complains; 
indeed, people are relieved. 

I lunched yesterday in a 
restaurant weD known as a 
meeting place for journalists 
and politicians, and was aston- 
ished not to be searched on 
entering. “We know all oar 
customers,” the mahre d’hote! 
explained. “If we don't rec- 
ognize their names and voices 
on the telephone, we say the 
restaurant is fall”. Many ta- 
bles remained vacant 
■ As for Government min- 
istries and die Ely see Palace, 
shown on the terrorists’ list as 
their next target, they have 
become veritable fortresses. 


Minister 
ends drug 
trail tour 

From Geoffrey Matthews 
Bogota 

Mr David Mellor, Minister 
of State at the Home Office, 
was scheduled to fly hack to 
Britain from Bogota today at 
the end of a. two week .fact- 
finding mission to South 
America to investigate the 
international cocaine racket. 

Daring his trip, he visited 
four of the key countries 
involved in the production of 
cocaine: Bolivia, Pfera, Ecua- 


dor, and finally Colombia. 

Yesterday, in a series of 
meetings in Bogota, be dis- 
cussed Colombia's continuing 
campaign against the racket 
with the Justice Minister and 
Interior Minister in President 
Barco's Government which 
took office six weeks ago, as 
well as police and military 
duels. 

He later called at the United 
States Embassy, whose res- 
ident Drag Enforcement Ad- 
ministration agents are con- 
sidered the unrivalled experts 
on the continental drag-smug- 
gling network. 

At the embassy he also met 
Mr Charles Gillespie, the US 
Ambassador, who recently 
told local businessmen that, 
while the Colombian police’s 
anti-narcotics squad was the 
most effective in Lathi Amer- 
ica, the nation continued to be 
the source of 75 per cent of the 
cocaine entering the US. 

Colombia is the main centre 
for the processing of cocaine 
from paste brought in from 
Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador and 
also Brazfl, where the coca 
plant flourishes.

By-election 
win boosts 
poll hopes 

Johannesburg — The likeli- 
hood of a South African 
general election this year was 
considered yesterday to have 
been increased by the Na- 
tional Party's good showing in. 
Wednesday’s by-election in 
the Klip River constituency in 
the Ladysmith region of Natal 
(Michael Hornsby writes^ 

The result has focused 
attention on President Botha's 
speech at the opening of the 
Transvaal provincial congress 
of the National Party in 
Pretoria this evening where be 
may give some indication of 
his electoral intentions. 

In a straight fight between 
the National Party's Mr Jacko 
Maree and Mr Chris Wol- 
marans, of the extreme right- 
wing Herstigte Nasionale 
Party (HNP), the Government 
scored a comfortable victory. 

Mr Maree received 5,863 
votes, 3,033 more than the 
2,830 cast for Mr Wolmarans. 
For a by-election, there was a 
high turnout of 58 per cent. 

A spokesman for President 
Botha called the result, in a 
predominantly English-speak- 
ing province, “a sign that 
South Africa is uniting”. 

The HNP claimed a moral 
victory on the ground that the 
right-wing vote had doubled 
since the last general election. 
But there is no real compari- 
son, as the last election took 
place before the breakaway 
from the National Party of the 
Conservative Party of Dr 
Andries TreumicbL 
The Conservative Party did 
not put up a candidate in Klip 
River. „ . . . 

A senior National Party 
source said yesterday that 
President Botha was “person- 
ally itching to hold an 
election”. One reason is 
thought to be the frequent 
taunt from right-wingers that 
he no longer has a mandate 
from white, voters. 

The last general election 
was in April 1981, and the 
Government's five-year term 
would normally have expired 
earlier ihis year. But when the 
new Constitution was in- 
troduced in 1984 the while 
House of Assembly term was 
extended to 1989. 


Black anger over 
mining disaster 

From Michael Hornsby, Johannasbnrg 


The executive of South 
Africa's black National Union 
of Mineworlceis (NUM) was 
expected to meet last night lo 
consider possible protest ac- 
tion over the loss of life at the 
Kinross gold mine where 177 
miners died last Tuesday after 
an underground fire.. 

The NUM ‘ general sec- 
retary. Mr Cyril Ramaphosa, 
described the disaster at the 
mine as “completely un- 
necessary” after visiting h on 
Wednesday, and suggested 
that proper safety measures 
regarding the use of flam- 
mable materials and the pro- 
vision of fire extinguishers 
had not been observed. 

There is also a possibility 
that the Kinross disaster could 
have an impact on important 
wage negotiations 

On July I. the Chamber of 
Mines unilaterally introduced 
wage rises ranging between 1 5 
and 20 percent, but the NUM. 
which claims a membership of 
some 300,000 of the more 
than 500.000 blacks working 
in tbe mines, continued to 
hold out for an across-the- 
board 30 per cent rise. 


A formal dispute was then 
declared. At talks last Mon- 
day, before the Kinross 
disaster, the two sides seemed 
to be edging towards a com- 
promise. The NUM reduced 
its demand to 26 per cent, 
while the Chamber of Mines 
reportedly raised, its offer by 
another 2 per cent 

Meanwhile. Gencor, the 
Afrikaner-dominated mining 
house which owns Kinross, 
said that there was now only 
one miner still not accounted 
for. and presumed dead. 

Mr Peter Gush, the presi- 
dent of the Chamber of Mines, 
promised that once the full 
details of “how a tragedy of 
this scale occurred” were 
known, the industry would 
“move rapidly to take steps to 
prevent any possible recur- 
rence of such an event". 

A spokesman for the cham- 
ber said that on the evidence 
so far. the wide use in gold 
mines of polyurethane mat- 
erials. such as insulating and 
sealing agents, would have to 
be thoroughly investigated.

THE TIMES FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 19 1986 




•Can you think of a good reason for paying 
more tax than you need to? 

A remarkable number of sophisticated in- 
vestors pay more tax than they need, simply 
because they haven’t taken full advantage of the 
range of nothing-to-dedare investments offered 
by National Savings. 

These investments are completely exempt 
from U.K. Income Tax at all levels, and they are 
also free of Capital Gains Tax. You don’t even have 
to declare them on your tax form. 

So how tax-effident is your portfolio? 

Do your investments, for example, indude 
the current 31st Issue of National Savings Certifi- 
cates? These give you a tax-free return of 7*85% 
pa, guaranteed over a full five years. The maxi- 
mum holding has just been doubled to £10,000. 
You may invest up to this amount in addition to 
previous issues of Certificates you have already. 

At the same time, you can invest up to £5,000 
in tax-free Index-linked Certificates. The new 
4th Issue gives you Extra Interest of 4% pa, 
guaranteed over a full five years, on top of in- 
flation-proofing. 

In addition, you can subscribe up to £200 a 
month to Yearly Plan, which yields fixed and 
tax-free returns at rates notified to you annually. 
The guaranteed rate currendy on offer is 8 19% 
pa, over five years. Monthly payments are simple 
to make by standing oiderandyoucanstop when 
it suits you. 


All three of these investments have the added 
benefit of interest rates that are guaranteed over 
a full five years, whatever happens to rates 
elsewhere. 

And remember; everyone in your family has 
a separate entidement to their own holding of 
tax-free National Savings investments. 

Application forms and leaflets giving interest 
rate details for all three products are available at 
post offices. The two current Issues of Savings 
Certificates can also be bought through your 
bank. Or if you prefer you can fill in the coupon 
or telephone free on 0800 100 100 (24-hour 
service) and we will send you a comprehensive 
information pack on tax-free National Savings 
investments, including a copy of our book 
Investing in National Savings! 

It’s wqrth doing now, because the longer you 
delay, the longer you could be paying more tax 
than you need.

Superpower summit in Hangar 

Moscow warns 
of tit-for-tat if 

UN Russians 

are expelledi 

From Christopher Walker, Moscow 

The Soviet Union yesterday 
reacted angrily to the US 
decision to expel 25 members 
of its United Nations Mission 
by the end of the month and 
threatened that the Kremlin 
would take unspecified retal- 
iatory measures if the expul- 
sions went ahead. 

The official wanting, issued 
at a crowded press conference 
here on the eve of today's 
crucial meeting between the 
Soviet and American foreign 

ministers has raised the uiuwn mm spcum& ;uui. im- 
possibility of a damaging se- ■ nature of the retaliation or 


ries of tit-for-tat expulsions. 

It has also further called 
into question the prospects of 
staging a second superpower 
summit before the end of the 
year. 

American diplomatic sou- 
rces later said that the US 
could be expected to respond 
swiftly, and in kind, if the 
Soviet authorities began to 
order the expulsion of Ameri- 
can diplomats, journalists or 
businessmen from Moscow to 
maich the move against its 25 
employees at the UN in New 
York. 

Speaking less than 24 hours 
after the original Washington 
announcement, Mr Boris 
Pyadyshev. the Soviet Foreign 
Ministry spokesman, describ- 
ed the US action as scandalous 
and said it was a deliberate 


attempt to spoil re 
advance of the talks 
Mr Eduard Sheva 
Mr George Shultz. 

“We do not want tt close 
our eyes and turn (id 1 bade. 
The US is making a mistake in 
thinking that this provocative 
step will have no consequen- 
ces," the spokesman told 
reporters. “Such addons in 
international affaire always 
have consequences." 

Mr Pyadyshev refused to be 
drawn into spelling: out the 
nature of the retaliation or 
when it would be put into 
effect by the Kremlin 

The Soviet official, whose 
briefing was understood to 
have been cleared at the top 
level of the Soviet hierachy, 
was asked how Moscow might 
hit beck since there were no 
Americans working far inter- 
national organizations like the 
UN based inside the Soviet 
Union. ; 

“1 would note djat the 
prindple of mirror reaction is 
not always the best one," be 
replied. 

His remarks increai sd con- 
cern among the 30 A aerican 
journalists who ar now 
accredited in Mosaw that 
some of them might bi singled 
out for expulsion. 

Mr Pyadyshev showed no 
sign of any weakening of the 





v*v. 


Mrs Eduard Shevardnadze, 
Kremlin's persistent hard line 
on the Daniloff case, referring 
instead to what he claimed 
was fabricated evidence ag- 
ainst Mr Gennady Zakharov, 
the Soviet physicist who is 
awaiting trial for spying. 

Mr Pyadyshev, a veteran 
diplomat and a former deputy 
head- of the Foreign Ministry's 
US Department, used the 
televised press conference as a 
vehicle for launching a sweep- 
ing attack against the Reagan 
Administration, noticeably 
more bitter in tone than those 
given here by other officials in 
the wake of Mr DanilofFs 
arrest on August 30.

From Zoriana Pysariwslcy 
New York 

There were fears in the 
United Nations diplomatic 
comm unify yesterday that the 
US expulsion of 25 of its 
Soviet employees could in- 
crease the conflict between the 
superpowers. 

.They blamed a series of 
crossed signals and misread 
messages between the super- 
powers throughout the entire 
episode, which began with the 
arrest of Mr Gennady Zakhar- 
ov, the UN Soviet employee, 
on charges of espionage. 

SeAor Javier F6rez de 
Cuellar, the UN Secretary- 
General, again repeated his 
offer to act as intermediary ia 


an effort to defuse ; tensions 
between the two sides. But UN 
officials said that the incident 
had gone beyond the, scope of 
die Secretary-General 

The American cMemtion 
that tiie expulsion or er was 
not linked to die cas of Mr 
Nicholas Daniloff, die Ameri- 
can journalist being »ei in 
Moscow, was met wi li scep- 
ticism here. 

it was said the recall was an 
attempt by Washington to 
disrupt criticism over its han- 
dling of the Daniloff fcase. 

Diplomats and UN officials 
attributed the American direc- 
tive to a misreading of remarks 
made last week by Mr Alexan- 
der Belonogov, the Soviet 
Ambassador to the UN, who 


said that the US demand to cut 
hark Moscow’s mission was 
“absolutely illegal". 

Since the American direc- 
tive, issued last March, die 
Russians have quietly ent back 
to 212 mission members, six 
fewer t h *" the 218 limit 
Washington had set 

A broad cross-section of 
diplomats did not like the idea 

of their missions being held 
hostage to the vicissitudes of 
East-West relations. 

According to the UN legal 
council, any dispute over the 
size of a mission most fee 
resolved through negotiations 
between the two sides. If those 
Dcgotiations fail then the Sec- 
retary-General can bring the 
matter before three arbiters.

eign Minister, meet in Wash-

Under the provisions of the

If the threshold was reduced

Extradition of terrorists 

Britain offers treaty in 
attempt to improve 
relations with India 


From Our Own Correspondent, Delhi 


Britain took an important 
step towards improving rela- 
tions with India yesterday 
(when the High Commission in 
[Delhi delivered to the Foreign 
Ministry the draft of a bi- 
lateral extradition treaty. 

The treaty is something that 

I e Indian Government has 
ng been pressing for, since 
ere is a widespread feeling 
rtong official aretes and in 
e public at large that Britain 
not doing enough to deal 
!tli Sikh terrorists. 

Until yesterday the British 
ittilude has always been that a 
lilateral treaty is not nec- 
essary since the problems can 
>c dealt with by amendment 
o the multilateral Fugitive 
Offenders Act, which governs 
stiradition arrangements be- 
ween Commonwealth coun- 
tries. 

India's anger aver what its 
fcstablishmem sees as British 
indulgence towards the Sikhs 

t as now finally overridden 
lis reluctance. 

The treaty presented yes- 
terday goes a long way to- 
wards meeting their re- 
juiremems. 

It is perhaps a measure of 

E bad relations between the 
governments have now 
me that the official In- 


dian government spokesman 
declined repeatedly last night 
to welcome the concession, 
saving simply that India 
wished to see what the final 
outcome of the negotiations 
might be. 

Aside from the Sikh ques- 
tion, and the related issue of 
pro-Pakistan militants from 
Kashmir, relations have taken 
a further sharp fall over the 
issue of sanctions against 
South Africa, and what the 
Indians see as racially discrim- 
atory visa requirements short- 
ly to be imposed by Britain on 
visitors from the sub-con- 
tinent. 

Although Sir Geoffrey 
Howe, the Foreign Secretary, 
said during his visit here at the 
beginning of April that he was 
not in favour of a new treaty, 
he did make some proposals 
for improving extradition 
arrangements which are now 
incorporated in the British 
draft 

The draft also includes a 
proposal to disallow the 
“political” defence for acts of 
terrorism, which was pro- 
posed to Mr Rajiv Gandhi, the 
Indian Prime Minister, when 
he was in London last 
October. 

The Indians themselves 


submitted a draft treaty in 
January of this year, and the 
British proposal includes 
some of the suggestions made 
then - in particular, it in- 
cludes the enme of conspiracy 
in India to commit an act of 
terrorism in India among 
those not protected by the 
political defence. 

British officials regard the 
“no-list” method of defining 
extraditable crimes as an 
improvement on the Indian 
draft. 

This makes extraditable any 
crime which would attract a 
sentence of at least .12 months 
in both countries, instead of 
relying on a list of agreed 
crimes, and was the main 
proposal made by Sir Geoffrey 
in ApriL 

Tn one respect it is less- than 
the Indian proposal. The In- 
dians wanted to exclude a 
“humanitarian” clause, which 
is present in their own extra- 
dition law, protecting individ- 
uals from extradition where 
they might be harshly treated 
on racial or other grounds. 

The negotiations on the 
treaty will be taken up at the 
beginning of October when a 
team led by Dr P. Srinivasa 
Rao, the Foreign Ministry's 
legal affairs director, will go to 
London.

Strain starts to hit Sri Lanka tijoops 


From Michael Hamlyn 

J affna 

While the Tamil commu- 
nities in the north and east of 
Sri Lanka have gathered most 

of the international sympathy 

offered to the warring citizens 
of the country, it is also 
possible to fed some pity for 
ihe much-criticized Sri Lan- 
kan armed forces. 

It is not much fun for the 
soldiers to be penned up in 
their camps in the northern 
peninsula of Jaffna while 
armed militants lie in wait at 
every gate. 

They get no enjoyment 
from being compelled to sit 
there while the Tamil rebels, 
seeking the establishment of a 
separate Tamil state, lob 
home-made but none the less 
effective mortar bombs at 
them, together with a mixture 
of rocket-propelled- grenades 
and rifle bullets. 

“We want peace, too, you 
know,” said Brigadier Gerry 
Da Silva, the security forces 
commander in the Jaffna 
peninsula. “We miss the com- 
pany of our families, too. We 
want this war to end." 


j After a number of incidents 
involving members of the 
aped tomes when Tamil 
tqen, women and children 
were massacred to avenge the 

ceaths of soldiers in 

ambushes, the Sri 
fores now seem to be under 

more perfect control. But the 

rehilt is that the men chafe 

under what' they feel is the 


camp. But the cost in terms of 

manpower and money would 

be unrealistic. 

Because of this the patrols 

that do leave the camps are 

instantly engaged by the rebel 

groups, and every day tire- 

fights occur. Since many of the 

camps are in densely popu- 

lated areas, the risk to local 
Tamil civilians is high and

The Army also still faces 
some problems of discipline. 
Last week, for example, a 
young hysterical soldier shot 
his officer and two others 
because he was aggrieved over 
his leave. 

“The indiscipline has been 
greatly exaggerated,” said 
Brigadier Da Silva, but he 
admitted it did exist.

Reagan wins battle 
over aid for Unita 


From Mohsin All, Washh 


The Democrat-controlled 
US House of Representatives 
has given President Reagan an 
important foreign policy vic- 
tory by voting to continue 
covert military aid to Dr Jonas 
Savimbi's guerrilla forces 
fighting the Marxist Govern- 
ment of Angola. 

By a 229-189 vote, the 
House on Wednesday de- 
feated a bid by opponents to 
kill President Reagan's ap- 
proval earlier this year of a 
SIS million (£10.2 million) aid 
deal for the rebel National 
Union for the Total Indepen- 
dence of Angola (Unita). 

President Reagan and his 
congressional supporters see 
the aid for the rebels as a 
crucial element in stemming 
Soviet expansionism in sou- 
thern Africa. 


Unita hds been fighting a 
bush War] for more than a 
decade against Luanda. 

Before the House vote, Mr 
George Shkltz, the US Sec- 
retary of Stale, sent a letter to 
Congress saying the bid to kill 
the aid wotud stop any move- 
ment toward a negotiated 
settlement in Angola. 

Mr Shultz plans to discuss 
apartheid, economic sanctions 
and the Namibia indepen- 
dence dispute during a visit he 
is tentatively planning to 
southern Africa next month. 

Details have to be worked 
out, but the tour is expected to 
last about 10 days, and he is 
likely lo Visit South Africa, 
some black African frontline 
states, including Zambia and 
possibly K)enya, and at least 
one West African nation.

history" and “declares an end 
to four decades of lip service 
to the idea that the Army, 
Navy, Air Force and Marine 
Corps act as a team rather 
than as competitors. 

The changes were initiated 
in the Senate, after which the 
House produced versions of 
its own. Compromises were 
agreed during long, arduous 
negotiations. 

Representative Bill Nichols, 
chief architect of the legisla- 
tion in the House, said the 
most important change was 
the strengthening of the role of 
the commanders. “We give 
them the awful responsibility 
of winning but not always the 
tools they need," be added. 

At present the US com- 
mander of European forces, 
for example, could not even 
dictate where ammunition 
must be stored but must go 
through the military bureau- . 
cracy for permission. 

Mr Nichols said that under 
the Bill the commander could, 
among other things, store 
ammunition where he wished, 
hire and fire four-star generals 
and admirals, and send his 
budget recommendations di- 
rectly to the Defence Sec- 
retary. 

Designers of the Bill believe 
it will take foiiror five years to 
determine felly whether it has 
been effective. Senator Barry 
Gold water, chairman of the 
Senate armed services com- 
mittee, said the measure was 
his proudest achievement and 
“the only thing I have done in 
the Senate that is worth a 
damn”. 

Under present rules, the 
chairman of the five-member 
Joint Chiefs of Staff presides 
over that body and presents its 
collective view to the Presi- 
dent 

Under the new rules, the 
chairman will not have to 
present consensus opinions. 
He will also be the principal 
military adviser to the Na- 
tional Security Council and 
the Defence Secretary and 
could serve as long as six years 
rather than the current four.

Two destroyers of the

be exercising bilaterally with 
the New Zealanders. A 
spokesman declined to elab- 
orate. 

The Lange Government's . 
decision to bar nuclear- 
powered and mid ear-armed 
ships from its waters led to its 
formal suspension by the US 


Anzus plea by Fraser 


Sydney - Mr Malcolm 
Fraser, the former Australian 
Prune Minister, urged the 
Reagan Administration last 
year to exploit the traditional 
relationship between Britain 
and New Zealand to help 
resolve the dispute over the 
Anzus defence pact (Stephen 
Taylor writes). 

This is revealed in a copy of 
Mr Fraser's letter to Mr 
George Bosh, the US Vice- 
President, which was leaked to 
The Age newspaper in Mel- 
bourne. 


New Zealand's decision to 
proceed with anti-nuclear leg- 
islation led to its suspension 

from Anzus last mouth. 

In the letter, Mr Fraser 
said: “British influence, prop- 
erly used, can be pre-eminent 
in achieving a change of heart 
in New Zealand, and the 
tragedy is that that approach 
has not been adopted, low key 
and long ago." 

Mr Bill Hayden, the For- 
eign Minister, said: M I don't, 
think the US paid any atten- 
tion to ft.*’ 


ships and Britain's policy of 
neither confirming nor deny- 
ing that, .vessels are carrying 
nuclear weapons. 

Sir John indicated at the 
time that the nuclear ban 
might affect defence co-opera- 
tion with New Zealand. 

This episode establishes 
that it has. Sources say no new 
British exercise with New 
Zealand will be scheduled in 
the region while the ban lasts. 

The rift will not affect the 
five-power defence arrange- 
ment that binds Britain with 
New Zealand and Australia to 
the defence of Singapore and. 
Malaysia. Exercises under the 
arrangement, with the 
codename “Starfish", were re- 
cently held in the South China 
Sea. 

The “Croweater" exercises 
will be from October 13 to 20 
after a fleet review on October 
4, taken by the Duke of 
Edinburgh, involving more 
than 40 ships of seven navies.

Police break up Costa Rica protest 


San Jose (Reuter) - Qub- 
wielding riot police used tear- 
gas to break up an anti-* 
government protest yesterday 
by hundreds of peasants in the 
Costa Rican capital. 

Setior Hemfin Garroo, the 
Public Security Minister, told 
reporters that several police ' 
officers, indudinga colonel in 


charge of the riot squad, were 
injured. 

Witnesses said at least 15 of 
the peasant demonstrators 
were arrested and an undeter- 
mined number injured. 

An estimated 400 peasants 
from Costa Rica's Atlantic 
coastal region blocked traffic 
on one of San Josd's main 


thoroughfares for about four 
hours before police forced 
them to flee under a thick 
cloud of tear gas. 

The peasants were protest- 
ing at President Oscar Arias’s 
alleged failure to keep a cam- 
paign" promise of agrarian 
reform with small parcels of 
land for tenant formers.

SPECTRUM 


I 


Kilroy is here, five days a week 


f Robert Kilroy-Silk did not 
already exist. Phil Donahue, 
the top American talk show 
host, could shorty claim to 
have invented him. The Labour 
MP is about to resign his seat to 
front a daytime television show 
forthe BBC which is likely to bear 
a strong resemblance to 
Donahue's daily hour in the 
company of America's house- 
wives. The resemblance is purely 
intentional. 

Kilroy-S ilk's show, not yet fi- 
nally scheduled but, likely to be 
from 9 to 10 am. will involvealive 
discussion on topics of the mo- 
ment between a panel of experts 
and the studio audience. 
Transmitted five days a week, it 
will give Kilroy-Silk even more 
television exposure, in terms of 
time, than his friend and 
Buckinghamshire neighbour, 
Teny Vegan. 

“We intend to be lively and 
topical", says Kilroy-Silk. "and we 
shall not just be arguing about the 
news but taking issues a stage 
further and making news 
ourselves”. Possible names for the 
programme include It ! s Kilroy and 
Kilroy ‘s Here but the current 
favourite is the more prosaic Day 
to Day. : 

Anyone familiar with American 
television will detea the similarity 
to The Phil Donahue Show. 
“Donahue is an opinionated and 
colourful personality”, says a 
source close to Day to Day. “and 
we make no apology for the fact 
that we intend to copy his style as 
closely as possible". 

But Sara Ramsden. producer of 
Day to Day. says: “Robert will not 
be quite ' the star figure that. 
Donahue is, but more a catalyst 
Donahue is very opiniated and we 
do not envisage Robert having 
quite that role. But he will not 
always be the impartial BBC 
presenter" 

The gestation of Day to Day 
goes back long before Kilroy-Silk 
decided there was more to life 
than lighting the Militant Ten- 
dency. The Donahue programme 
was seen by several top BBC men. 
not least Michael Grade, during 
trips to the United States and they 
were determined to bring the 
format to Britain. 

The maturing of plans for 
Daytime, an attempt to present a 
more dynamic schedule during the 
traditionally fallow hours of the 
morning and afternoon, presented 
the opportunity. But the success of 
the format depended heavily on 
the presenter and the search was 
mounted for a British Donahue. 



In the end. the matter was 
settled very quickly. At the begin- 
ning of July. Kilroy-Silk men- 
tioned to a friend that he was 
giving up politics. Word got 
through to the BBC. Kilroy-Silk 
was offered the job and he 
accepted it almost immediately. 

Physically. Donahue resembles 
not so much Kilroy-Silk as an- 
other Briton, the artist, David 
Hockney. He has the same mop of 
grey-blond hair and the 'same 
ingenuous round spectacles. 
Only the air of gentle abstraction 
is missing, but intellectual hesi- 
tancy is not something American 
television cherishes. 

Though Donahue has long been 
among America's leading chat 


show hosts, he has been at the job 
for almost 20 years and has 18 
Emmy awards, he is now consid- 
ered at the height of his drawing 
powers. 

Last week his syndicated show, 
which is seen on 21 5 television 
stations throughout the United 
States. Canada and Australia, was 
moved from 1 0am to 4 pm as part 
ofa ratings battle betwren NBC, his 
major outlet, and its rival 
networks. 

The unimpressed stranger 
might think that neither is prime 
viewing time. But that would be 
missing the point Donahue is the 
housewives' choice, a Wogan 
without the jokes, who has built 
his career on leasing out the 


human interest factor from the 
issues of the day and offering them 
in a palatable coffee-time format 

T he staff on The Phil 
Donahue Show have an 
elevated view of their 
purpose. “We take the 
major issues — East/West rela- 
tions, drugs, AIDS — and present 
them in an intelligent and acces- 
sible. manner”, one of his 
backroom people said loftily. 

“Well, yes, they do cover 
Easi/West relations, but in the 
manner of The Houswives of 
Illinois Confront the Housewives 
of Kiev*\says Peter Boyier. a 
television critic of The New York 
Times. “They also do thmgs Like 


How to Live with a Trans-sexual 
Husband. It's not exactly the sort 
of programme that the leaders of 
governments rush to their screens 
to see. But it is a great success with 
the women at home. Donahue 
schmoozes with them. He elevates 
and flatters them.” 

Donahue takes exception to that 
sort of description. When one 
reporter asked him recently if be 
had reservations about doing a 
programme which merely pan- 
dered to housewives, he was 
animated in his response. “The 
phrase is sexist and bespeaks a 
prejudice about housewives. 

“Housewives are people with 
curlers who sit under hairdriers 
and read movie magazines about 


whether Bun will marry Lonnie. 
This is a very narrow stereotype. If 
there's anything our programme 
has demonstrated, it's that women- 
want to hear a lot more than 
daytime televisioh gives them.” 

-Donahue is strong on sexism. 
He is a reformed male chauvinist 
and indeed has made something of 
a career out of the conversion. As 
befits a one-time altar boy at Our 
Lady of Angels parish in Geve- 
land, Ohio, he repeals his mea 
culpa loudly and often. 

“I was handed from mother to 
wife in my first marriage. If you 
wanted to be my slave. I was going 
to fa you. I was raised that way” 
he is fond of telling, interviewers. 
Given the chance, he would like to 


bring up the five chjldrcn of that 
first marriage again and dif- 
ferently. "I would work harder to 
be as demonstrably loving with 
the boys^ as I was with my 

^r^w^iged 50. he has left behind 
bis first wife, just as he left me 
television station in Dayton, 
Ohio, where his show was first 
recorded and broadcast. It. 1 
taped in New York where he lives 
with his second wife Mario 
Thomas, a glamorous American 
television and Broadway star. 

D onahue has developed 
the reputation, un- 
doubtedly to Alan 
Alda's chagrin, as 
“America's most famous, sen- 
sitive. liberated man . His tech- 
nique as an interviewer is 
confrontational. He sets carefully - 
chosen antagonists against one 
another, surrounded by a largely 
female audience. . 

Sometimes ihe strategy is all in 
the planning, as on the occasion 
when his guests were the former 
wives of a famous US politican 
and publisher who had gone 
through messy cases and since led 
rather racy sex lives. “He knew 
that half the women in .the 
audience would think they were 
shits and would go for them with a 
lot of screaming and shrieking. All 
good television, of course, but you 
can only take that kind of thing in 
fairly small doses”, says Peter 
Boyier. 

“Is he serious about it? Well yes, 
but then vacuum cleaner salesmen 
are serious about that. But his sort 
of thing is not what you or 1 mean 
by serious.” 

Quite whether this is what . 
Robert Kilroy-Silk would mean by 
serious is also open to doubt.

| The forgotten war 




To most people, the public 
face of Sandy Gall is as an 1TN 
newscaster. But he is equally a 
veteran war correspondent, 
having covered Vietnam, the 
Congo and Amin’s Uganda. 
And recently he returned from 
a perilous two months dodg- 
ing Russian patrols in 
Afghanistan in search of the 
guerrilla leader Ahmed Shah 
Masud. 

This was Gall's third trip to 
Afghanistan and his second 
filming of Masud. He has also 
recorded how the Pashiuns. 
the majority tribe, were faring. 
This time, he wanted to see 
how Masud was progressing. 
“I wanted to go back because 
it is a disgrace that the fighting 
is still not being reported 
properly. After all it is their 
Vietnam”, he says. 

After waiting a month in 
Islamabad — “I hadn’t realised 
the high passes were snow- 
bound and we physically 
couldn't get across” — Gall, 
along with an ex-army man 
and a cameraman, were smug- 
gled over the Pakistani border 
with the help of the 
Mujahiden guerrillas. They 
were disguised in local 
shalwar (baggy trousers) and 
kameez (long shirts). 

The trio entered Afghani- 
stan in the north and spent 
two weeks trekking through 
Nuristan to the Panjsher Val- 
ley. They then went up to 
Takhar Province and north- 
wards to FarWiar. For a 
country still at war. it was a 
remarkably incident-free irip. 

The team twice drove in a 
captured Russian jeep. Other- 
wise they rode or walked 
across mountainous terrain in 
uninterrupted stints of 10 to 
12 hours. Food was scarce and 


Sandy Gall has just 
returned with unique 
battle footage after a 
perilous trip through 
occupied Afghanistan

War veteran: Sandy Gall 

they survived on vast quanti- 
ties of rice and tough goat — 
supplemented with their Own 
supplies of bully beef, tinned 
sardines and tinned cheese. 

When they found Masud in 
Farkhar. Gall discovered a 
remarkably able and well- 
organized commander who is 
still full of confidence. “He 
was half-way to becoming a 
Tito-type overall partisan 
leader and running the war 
very well in his own north- 
eastern constituency.” 

Masud was planning an 
attack on an Afghan army 
garrison of about 300 people.

just north of Farkhar. It was 

icavily defended, with ma- 
chine-gun posts on the 
surrounding hills. 

On August 17, Masud at- 
tacked with heavy weaponry, 
including machine-guns and 
devastating BM12 multi- 
rocket launchers. The camera- 
man went into the thick of the 
action, and the battle footage 
should be spectacular. Masud 
claimed a major victory, fi- 
nally overrunning the last post 
in a new attack 36 hours later. 

Gall feds that Masud is 
making headway, but that he 
is an exception. There have 
been huge changes since his 
last visit. “The balance of 
power has shifted in favour of 
the Soviets and Afghan 
government.” he says. The 
Russians have improved their 
tactics in ihe past two years 
and adapted conventional 
tank-fighting methods to guer- 
rilla warfare in the mountain- 
ous country, employing more 
special Spemaz forces to carry 
out strike operations. 

"In many areas ibe 
Mujahideen have been put 
under extreme pressure and 
some are very dispirited. But 
there is no suggestion they will 
give up. even if they are beaten 
to their knees.” 

However. Gall is wary of 
generalization, pointing out 
that covering and assessing 
the war is almost impossible. 
“You have to walk or go on 
horseback, so you only get to 
see one area. You rely-on other 
people's reports ” Still, he wifi 
attempt an assessment in a 
one-hour documentary on 
ITV in November — after 
considering the plight of the 
Afghan nation and profiling 
Masud. 

Their “plight” he says, is 
that one-third of the popula- 
tion (S million people) are 
refugees in Pakistan and Iran. 
There are also swarms of 
imcntaJ refugees living with 
relatives in shanty towns or 
caves in the hills. 

“Guerrillas are a very elu- 
sive target, and so every day. 
Russians are carrying out 
atrocities and killing civilians. 
It is not reported because there 
is nobody there to do so. 

In December it will be seven 
years since the Russians in- 
vaded. “It must rank as one of 
the great tragedies of the 
century, one of the most 
vicious wars and the biggest 
since the Second World War" 
says Gall. “It shows no sign of 
letting up.” 

Nor does Gall. The pro- 
ceeds of the Boisdale Ball for 
Afghanistan on September 25 
wfli be divided between Af- 
ghan Aid and the Sandy Gall 
Appeal which supplies Af- 
ghans with artificial limbs.

Yesterday’s tomorrow 


The prolific Isaac 
Asimov has, written 
a unique analysis of 
the fixture predicted 
on old cigarette cards 


Isaac Asimov remembers the 
future as if it were yesterday. 
Every working day Ashnov 
must crouch at his computer 
terminal (surely nothing 
less?) and call up that part of 
the 23rd century in which he 
had been exploring the day 
before. Futurism is an in- 
dustry, and Asimov a captain 
of it. 

It is not a modern inven- 
tion. Futurism . thrived for. 
centuries without benefit of a 
label. Most of it was doom- 
laden. as in the Book of 
Revelations: an apocalyptic 
encounter between Good and 
Evil a world reduced to the 
smoke and dust of its own 
excess, a day of judgement, 
all mankind summoned be- 
fore God to have the report 
card stamped. Must Do 
Better. 

Some say this kind 'of 
futurism is gibberish: I prefer 
to wait and see. 

-Asimov prefers to write 
aid see, and be has consid- 
erable vision. He joins a 
distinguished line, including 
thinkers like Wells, who- 
brought us atomic bombs 
soon after the powers of the 
nucleus had been identified, 
and adventurists like Verne, 
who took us to the bottom of 
the sea before submarines 
and into space before aircraft 

Verne, writing in the mid- 
dle of the last century, was 
perhaps the first modern 
futurist in that he extrapo- 
lated the rapid change already 
under way. courtesy of the 
steam engine, to- show where 
it might lead. 



Inspired artwork: Cfit&’s 1899 ^hydroplane” looks like the modern hovercraft 


How interesting, then, to 
find that Asimov's latest 
book. Fuiuredays, as wdl as 
being fixed in the past pro- 
vides an opportunity to com- 
pare the imaginative intell- 
igence of more or less 
contemporary men: Verne, 
who made his debut with Five 
Days In A Balloon in 1863, 
and Jean Mare 05 td, a French 
Commercial, artist commis- 
sioned in ' 1899 to draw 
cigarette cards showing what 
he thought the world would' 
be like in the year 2000. 

Asimov’s commentary on- 
the cards is kind to Cdtfc and 
rightly so. The Frenchman 
was overiy-cautious in his 
predictions, because, under- 
standably. enough, he as- 
sumed a more or less 
unchanged- pace of develop- 
ment: so slow had it been 
until the 1800s that few 
people foresaw that progress 
overthe next 1 00 years would 
be more like watch mg paint 
applied titan watching it dry. 

. Given that Cote's predic- 


tions lacked that time dimen- 
sion. other elements of his 
tion are all the more 
e. He foresaw the 
coming of air sea rescue, for 
instance, and h was only his 
technological innocence that 
had him depicting gliders, not 
helicopters, plucking men 
from the sea. And he brought 
us a “hydroplane”, which 
Asimov reckons could be a 
blueprint for the seaplane but 
which also bears a remark- 
able resemblance to a crude 
form of hovercraft. 

Travel ~in all its glorious 
variety seemed to have fas- 
cinated C6te as much as it did 
Verne. He correctly predicted 
the concept of airmail, in- 
troduced 20 years Eater in the 
US. but the practicality had 
him -depicting a winged post- 
man delivering the mail 
house-to-bouse. 

The undersea world of Jean 
Mare Cote was one long 
party. Children played cro- 
quet on the seabed and he 
invented a novel version of 


THE: 



fishing in which you cast the 
. line upwards from under the 
. water to catch seagulls. 

. Not that catching seagulls * 
to eat would be necessary in 
Cotfi's 2000. for— three years 
after the discovery of vita- 
mins — he gave us a dinner 
party at which all the food 
was in pill form. 

Some things in life, how- 
ever possible, have a habit of 
being unpredictable — . es- 
pecially where money is con- 
cerned. Futuriedays reaches 
us now because the cigarette 
cards themselves have only 
recently come to light, the 
reason being that the firm ' 
which commissioned them 
went bust just as Cote fin- 
ished his work. One hopes the - 
Parisian had the foresight to 
get paid in advance.

J acques- Henri Lartigue 
was the man who 
stopped time, by cease- 
lessly collecting the 
presenL Before his death last 
week, at the age of 92, his high- 
spirited photographs of bour- 
geois: French life early this 
century had come to serve as a 
common memory of that 
time, and his pictures of 
women over a period of nearly 
85 years provide a calendar of 
the changing styles of fashion 
and. beauty in the 20th 
century. 

Lartigue's admirers, know 
his photographs of his first 
wife, Bibi, his second. Coco, 
and of many other women in 
his life. Florette. to whom he 
was married for 41 years, is 
thought of as a latecomer. 

Bui in his diaries - recently 
published in France ~ 
Lartigue’s surviving widow is 
revealed as a startlingly erotic 
nymph who painted her hands 
blue as a prelude to making 
love. Here, within these pages, 
he loves her : rejects her, is 
unfaithful to her. questions 
what he's done to deserve such 
happiness, and finally gives in. 
Florette's sexuality tells us 
something about the dif- 
ference between private and 
public experience, private and 
public women. 

During the war. Lartigue 
noted: "Between Florette and 
Marline Carol; both so pretty, 
perfumed. One is all done up 
to please me. The other to 
please others, all the others. 
Theatre actress - future 
movie star maybe — is her 
charm, her flirtatiousness cal- 
culated to get the desired 
result, or will the desired 
result come because she is the 
way she is?" 

Lartigue and Florette di- 
vided their life bewteen an 
apartment in Paris and a 
house in Opio. in the South of 
France, The apartment is al- 
most bare; for 35 years it 
served as a studio and storage 
rooms; and now “fhat the 
products of Lartigue's ob- 
session are carefully guarded 
by the state the studio is being 
used for lunches and the 
storage room contains only his 
collection of magazines and

autographed books. "We took 
the apartment," Lartigue told 
me earlier this year, "because 
it wasn't heated and had no 
elevator." 


T oday there's a lift 
wedged into the stair- 
well. but the place is 
still heated by a single 
wood-buming stove in the 
main room. Firewood is piled 
in the halL There is a small 
blue kitchen where Florette 
and Lartigue ate lunch, while 
looking through magazines. In 
the bedroom are twin beds 
with a crucifix painted by 
Lartigue on the wall between 
them, "litis place was very 
sophisticated and overdone." 
Lartigue said. "Florette 
thought it was hideous. But it 
was in the sun all day. and 
across the street is a boys' 
school where no one looks out 
of the windows, so I could 
walk around naked." 

The table in the middle of 
the room is where they held 
their lunch parties. "Never 


more than eight",. says 
Florette. But those eight might 
well have been actor Alain 
Delon, actresses Mireille 
Dare. Charlone Rampling and 
Nastassja Kinski, cartoonist 
Claire B retech er. playwright 
Jean -Claude Cam fere, and 
photographers Henri Cartier- 
Bresson and Jeanloup Sieff . 

Id his diaries, Lartigue 
wrote of a lunch in l979~ai 
which one of the guests was 
the then president of France, 
Valery GUcairi d'Estaing: 
"Plates cleared by all guests, 
president included. Funny 
picture to take, of him 
handing a plate to Florette for 
the washing up! When Valfeiy 
tells a story, you think of a rich 
man giving away coins out of 
his pocket. Among other 
things, he talks about the 
stories he tells himself as he's 
felling asleep, to cover the 
avalanches of reality that he 
receives during his waking 
life." 

Lartigue was a national 
treasure, a monument to the 
way the French would like to 
see themselves. A bureau 
called L‘ Association des Amis 
dc Jacques-Henri Lartigue is 
in charge of his collection of 
more than 250,000 photo- 
graphs, his gift to the nation. 
He has permanent exhibition 
space at the Grand Palais, and 
a museum for his paintings is 
planned at L'lsle-Adam, near 
Paris 

Having taken the official 
portrait of Valery Giscard 
d'Estaing. he became some- 
thing of an official himself. He 
proudly carried the red ribbon 
of the Lqpon d'Honneur and a 
rosette, singling him out as a 
Commandeur des Arts et Let- 
ues. in the buttonhole of his 
best suits. In May the church 
square in Opio. the village in 
the South of France where he 
also lived was renamed Place 
Jacques-Henri Lartigue, and 
in the same month, a stunning 
exhibition containing his 
stereoscopic photographs 
opened in Paris. 

Admirers of Lartigue’s 
photographs have had diffi- 
culty in deciding how to place 
his painting. That is because 
in his painting he did not set

At the fag end of my tether 


^ My 1 4-year-old son 
M smokes and my bus* 
band and I can do 
nothing about iL If 
your reaction to this is 
of the "well I certainly 
wouldn't let my 1 4-year-old 
get away with it" variety. I 
would have felt the same, less 
than a year ago. Last summer, 
when we first discovered that 
Paul bad begun smoking, we 
did not consider it too serious 
and thought it yet another 
phase of adolescence. 

It soon became obvious, 
however, from the number of 
matchboxes and empty ciga- 
rette packets found m his 
room, that he had passed 
beyond the occasional ‘quick 
drag' stage and was now 
smoking on a regular basis. 
His clothes (especially his 
school blazer) smelled of nico- 
tine. and to disguise the tell- 
tale odour on his breath he 
took to cleaning his teeth at 
odd limes during the day. 

We recognized that Paul 
had a problem and naturally 
we talked to him about iL No 
amount of discussing, reason- 
ing. arguing and yes. some- 
times shouting, on our pan 
would make him even try to 
break the habit. He could not 
(and still cannot) offer any 
good reason for giving up. He 
quite simply had started 
smoking, enjoyed It and now 


FIRST 

. PERSON M 


Valerie Relfe 


was unable to stop. It was 
difficult to believe that, only a 
year before, be had been so 
aware of the dangers that 
smoking posed to health that 
as pan of a school art project 
he and another boy (now also a 
smoker) had devised an anti- 
smoking game. 

Our next step was to stop 
giving him pocket money and 
to pay his paper round earn- 
ings directly into his bank 
account, as he admitted that 
he used this money to buy 
cigarettes. At 14. he measures 
nearly 6 feet, and can easily 
pass for 16. the age at which 
he may legally buy and be 
served with cigarettes. 

I visited his school and was 
told that he had already been 
discovered smoking on several 
occasions and had been 
warned that the next time his 
parents would be notified. 
After a talk with the school 
deputy head, he again prom- 
ised to try and give up. but we 
now find ourselves in the same 
situation, with the all-too- 
fa mi liar smell of stale tobacco 
about his person - easily 


detected in a house where he is 
the only smoker. 

What can we do? In all other 
aspects, our son is a normal, 
lively teenager who enjoys 
family life, but who has 
reached the stage where he 
needs to be given the opportu- 
nity to share a social life with 
his own friends. Must we 
prevent him from attending 
any or all of the activities he 1 
enjoys — band. Scouts, the 
occasional disco — because 
someone will offer him a 
cigarette which he hasn’t the 1 
will-power or the inclination to 
refuse? , 

As it is. any money we hand 
out for entrance fees or 
refreshments (always below 
the price of a packet of 10 
cigarettes) is accompanied by 
the worry that it will not be 
used for its intended purpose. 

We are powerless to prevent 
him buying cigarettes at tOp a 
time (or whatever the going 
rate) and I am becoming tired 
of Uy ing to outwit him as he 
continues to find ways of 
obtaining his drug — for his 
smoking must now be an 
addiction. He is more careful 
now about leaving cigarette 
boxes and stubs lying around 
his room, but he can do 
nothing to hide a rather 
persistent cough he 
seems to have M 
developed... ^

The household 
vacuum cleaner 
might not be the 
machine of hy- 
giene we aO 
think it is. In- 
deed, a doctor 
from the Pacific island of 
Guam suggests that it could 
spread food poisoning. In a 
letter to The Lancet, Dr Robert 
Haddock describes bow the 
incidence of salmonella 
poisoning has soared in Guam 
over the past 12 years. In 1973 
there were only 11 cases per 
100,000 of the population, but 
by 1985 tfae annual figure was 
181 per KMLOOO. 

Tests to see if the local food 
was responsible drew a blank, - 
not unexpectedly because al- 
most everything is imported 
from the United States. - 
Dr Haddock, turned his 
attention to the environment 
and found salmonella in four 
out of nine vacuum deaner 
contents sampled in the homes 
where an infant had food 
poisoning. This was despite 
the fact that other areas ®f the 
home, such as the sink, cut- 
ting-board or refrigerator were 
free of the bacteria. 

Vacuum cleaners are good 
collectors of salmonella, says 
Dr Haddock, and be fears that 
they might be good distrib- 
utors too.

sitively immortalized by John

MEDICAL 

BRIEFING 


Haw Band Soma. London Wl. T* 01-493 4578. 


No one could come up. with a 
diagnosis at the time, but in 
1909 it. was suggested that 
Joseph Merrick nod neuto- 
fibromatosis. This has since 
’been widely' accepted. 

Maw two Canadian paedia- 
tricians have looked again at 
the descriptions qf his case and 
at plaster-casts of his defor- 
mities and have disputed die 
idea 

They say that Joseph 
Merrick lacked the classic sign 
of neurofibromatosis, the well- 
defined skin lesions known as 
erne an fait spots, and that his 
Tr 


deformities were for more 
pronounced than is normally 
seen with people with this 
condition. 

Instead, they suggest that 
Joseph Merrick suffered from 
Proteus syndrome. This has 
been only recently described 
and is named offer the Greek 
god Proteus (the poly- 
morphous). It is probably 
inherited, and is characterized 
by progressive over-growth qf 
many tissues in the body. 

The doctors, who have seen 
a case recently in their depart- 
ment. say the resulting defor- 
mities (enlarged head, 
thickened skin and elongation 
of the bones) are much more 
akin to those suffered by 
Joseph Merrick than problems 
associated with neuro- 
fibromatosis. 

Pushing iron. 

Anaemia is 
responsible at 
least in part for 
the develop- 
mental delay so 
often seen in 
children from 
underprivileged areas of the 
Britain. A course of iron could 
help greatly, say doctors from 
the Sorrento Maternity Hos- 
pital in Birmingham. Dr Mau- 
reen Aukett and her colleagues 
found that 26 per cent of 
children aged between 17 and 
19 months screened in central. 
Birmingham were anaemic. 

In a controlled clinical trial 
involving 100 of these chil- 
dren, they showed that chil- 
dren greet) an iron mixture for 
two months, and In whom 
haemoglobin levels improved, 

■ pvt on more weight and devel- 
oped mentally at a fester rase 
than those who were not. 

Writing m Archives qf Dis- 
ease in C hi ldhood, the doctors 
say that, while iron deficiency 
anaemia Is not the only factor 
in slower development, it is 
certainly one which can easily 
be identified by Mood tests and 
treated. 

"In our opinion a - pro-: 
gramme Is needed to hunt out . 
and treat iron deficiency In. 
toddlers. The current child 
health services do oat achieve 
this, although the incorpora- 
tion of a haemoglobin screen- 
ing test into the child health . 
surveillance programme would 
not be difficult 

"The logistics of providing a 
few pennyworth of iron against 
Chose of repairing social dis- 
advantage do not bear 
comparison."

A campaign to 

+ improve public 
knowledge of 
emergency first 
aid will be 
launched at the 
end of the 
month. "Save A Life", which 
has the hacking of the Health 
Education Council, Depart-

of Medicine and many other 
charitable bodies will indade 
six BBC programmes on emer- 
gency care. 

Leaflets will accompany the 
programmes (which go ont on 
Sunday evenings from October 
12) and the organizers hope to 
persuade 70,000 people to ; 
attend a two-hoar training 
coarse on Cm aid. The coarse 
will be backed by a booklet. 

A survey conducted by the 
BBC In .June showed that 97 
per cent of the public felt it was 
important to know about emer- 
gency aid, while 84 per cent 
said they would watch a 
television series on the subject

though most had done so fay 
reading a booklet or leaflet. 
More than two-thirds of those 
who claimed to know some- 
thing about first aid said they 
had put their knowledge te 
use. 

Bat the survey also revealed 
gaps in that knowledge which, 
the campaign hopes to correct. 
When asked, for example, 
what they would do with a 
bleeding arm, 45 per cent said 
they would apply a tonmjqnet 
above the wound. The correct 
course is to apply pressure te 
the wound and raise tfae arm. 

Stress sensitive 

Experiments by doctors at the 
London Hospital Medical Col- 
lege have confirmed suspicions 
that stress affects the nw our 
bawds function and shat, 
accordingly, people who suffer 
from irritable hotvd syndrome 
(IBS) are especially sensitive to 
Stress. 

Using pressure sensors in the 
gat. studies show that IBS 
sufferers develop abnormal, 
irregular contractions of the- 
gut when they are under stress. " 

Dr David Wingate told the 
Eighth World Congress qf 
Gastroenterology, held in Sao 
Paulo. Brazil, tost week: “ This 
irregular contraction occurred 
in some patients even before 
stress happened; three or four 
patients only had them at rest. 
Some of the subjects had 
symptoms of IBS, predomi- 
nantly pain, and when they 
had them, this irregular activ- 
ity was present.** ..

How the National 
Housewives 
Register is caught up 
in a domestic 
-argument 

Something of a rumpus has 
erupted within ibe 24.000- 
suxmg membership of the 
National Housewives Reg- 
ister. It seems that 
"housewife" has become a 
dirty word for younger NHR 
members who had seen the 
spray-can writing on the wall 
particularly that which spells 
out -the strident sentiment 
"Don't call me a housewife: 
I'm not married to a house." 

No lively-minded woman 
worth her salt (and the NHR 
styles itself as "a meeting 
point for the lively-minded 
woman") can remain imper- 
vious to such subversive 
slogans. 

As Gillian Drake, national 
organizer of the NHR, ex- 
plains: "Very few women are 
full-time housewives these 
days, and a lot of our newer, 
younger members feel that 
the word ' is an immense 
recruitment barrier. Instead 
of ‘housewife' they now pre- 
fer to use expressions like 
‘household worker* or 
‘domestic manager’.’* 

Despite a few reactionary 
NHR diehards who grumble, 
"oh. not that old chestnut 
again, let's stick to the name 
we’ve got”, 27 new name 
suggestions have been col- 
lected from the organ- 
ization's 1.200 groups and 
180 affiliated overseas 
groups. 

These have been whittled 
down to three -National 
Women’s Register. Women's 
Forum and Women's Link. 
Drake emphasized that in 
each new name suggested, 
'women' is not spelt 
‘wimmin’. ."Definitely noL 
We are a non-pressure, non- 
political group and do not 
want to be confused with 
radical ‘wi mm in's' groups. 

"Several of our overseas 
groups, for example, have 
been calling themselves 
Women-in-Touch. This has 
led to problems with people 
who thought they were les- 
bian organizations. Not that 
we're against lesbians. They 
would betnade as welcome as 
everybody else ..." 

She added that while most 
members fevoura new name, 
there have been many re- 
quests that the initials remain 
unchanged. This recently 
prompted a newsletter poem 
from Merseyside member 
Philippa Collingwood who 
made a play on the initials 
with suggestions as diverse as 
Naughty Hedonistic Ravers 
to Need Hair Remover. 
Drake preferred Naturally 
Honest Rationalists. 

The NHR was set up in 
I966aftera newspaper article 
entitled "Squeezed in like 
sardines in suburbia", in 
which the writer berated the 
dreary lot of stay-at-home- 
wives. It has been mildly 
infected since by the fever of 
women's liberation. Mrs 


- Drake explained that "quite a 
few" feminists have joined 
along with career women and 
"party political types" 

NHR members are more 
conscious of women's rights 
than they were in the early 
days. They arc also insistenL 
to ihe point of frenzy, that 
they do not meet to swap 
home hints, share knitting 
patterns, and discuss 50- 
ways-wiih-mince. 

They are not amused at 
jibes, mostly from husbands, 
that.NHR stands for Natter- 
ing Housewives’ _ Register. 
Their reason for joining is 
summed up in a letter from 
Essex member Carol Cudger 
in the current newsletter, in 
which she writes. “Why did a 
wallflower like me join 
NHR? To gain confidence in 
airing my views, to broaden 
my horizons, to meet like- 
minded women, to overcome 
my painful shyness — in short 
to dc-cabbagc my brain!" 
Most members, incidentally, 
dismissed with contempt a 
serious suggestion that the 
' NHR name be changed to the 
Cabbage Club. 

The organization has re- 
cently been under pressure 
from house-husbands eager 
to swell the ranks. Single^ 
parent men raising children 
have found themselves un- 
welcome by Mothers and 
Toddlers groups, the Young 
Wives and the Women's 



Institute but the NHR is 
essentially an all-women 
organization, an escape from 
home, and - not to put too 
fine a point on it - often an 
escape from domineering 
men. as Drake explained. 

"We are not anti-men in 
any way; and we'd be de- 
lighted to advise them on 
how to set up male groups 
like ours, but basically we feel 
that if the NHR included 
men then the structure of our 
meetings would be altered " 

And she identified a further 
worry. “People might start 
fancying each other. And we 
do not want to become a 
dating agency." 

Whatever name the organ- 
izaiion decides upon. Drake 
says it will remain a group of 
ordinary women of all ages, 
with or without children, 
with or without paid jobs, 
who ask questions, who are 
interested in current issues, 
and who represent what is 
really the greatest undevel- 
oped natural resource in the 
world.

THE TIMES 
'-DIARY 

Trawling 
for trouble? 

Iceland is about to rub salt into old 
wounds at Grimsby,, one of the 
world's biggest fishing ports until 
the Cod war 10 years ago. For the 
First time since that conflict, the 
Icelanders are launching a cheeky 
campaign to get the people of 
Humberside to buy their cod. 
Their minister of commerce. 
Matthias Bjamason. brings a 
delegation of fish exporters over 
From Reykjavik next Tuesday to 
meet local councillors and bus- 
inessmen at a reception in 
Grimsby, chaired by TV personal- 
ity Magnus Magnusson. “The Cod 
War and all the bitterness was 
over a long lime ago." an Icelandic 
embassy spokeman tells me. 
Down by Grimsby's denuded 
docks, some think otherwise. 

Con brio 

An international music com- 
petition in Geneva dissolved into 
discord when 85 world-class 
clarinettists took to banner-wav- 
ing demonstrations over the judg- 
ing. They had expected to appear 
before a distinguished nine-man 
jury or musicians, but because 
there were so many they first had 
to appear before a panel of three, 
two of whom did not play the 
clarinet. Worse: they were asked to 
perform only half a Mozart con- 
certo. rather than the work in full, 
and finally were whittled down to 
a shortlist of 12: instead of the 
usual -18. Outraged British 
clarinettist Nicholas Cox pro- 
tested to the organizers, who 
summoned the security guards. 
They tried to manhandle him out 
of the hall, but he resisted hero- 
ically and the police were called

Different hue 

“This man is a disgrace to his 
colour". says the Mirror headline. 
“Insidious racist stereotyping", 
replies the Guardian leader writer. 
"Pompous, priggish and prudish", 
retorts the Mirror, for whom the 
Guardian is “pari written by 
Trotskyists for Social Democrats 
and pan by Social Democrats for 
Trotskyists”. It is not often that 
High Left and Low Left get the 
chance for an authentic fraternal 
embrace. They have really made 
the most of the Bristol Rasta- 
farian's wish that a white police* 
man will die of a heart attack. 


BARRY FANTONI 


Unless its Naio partners persuade 
it to take urgent action. Den- 
mam rk next month will hand 
Moscow a significant coup in its 
campaign of disinformation and 
destabilization -against the West. 
Preparations are. well m hand by 
the Soviet-controlled World Peace 
Council to hold a “world congress 
devoted to the International Year 
of Peace" in Copenhagen. The 
meeting, if it is allowed to take 
place, will be the WPCs first in a 
Nato country since 1950, when it 
made an abortive attempt to set 
up shop in Sheffield. 

Then, as now. the organizers 
denied that the WPC was a 
communist front organization. 
But. as Clement Attlee, who was 
then prime minister, pointed out; 
“Communist activities generally 
are camouflaged — in .this country 
they can usually gei a few respect- 
able but misguided people to 
provide the sheep's dothing 
... we are not willing to throw 
wide our doors to those who seek 
to come here to subvert our 
institutions." 

The British government there- 
fore refused entry visas to about 
200 would-be delegates, including 
80 from the Soviet Union. After a 
frustrated start in Sheffield the 
congress moved to Warsaw, from 
where it could . issue its ritual 
denunciations of the West in more 
congenial surroundings. 

The World Peace Council lies at 
the heart of an interlocking net- 

Thcre is a story about- Benazir 
Bhutto at Oxford which is relevant 
to the evolving political situation 
in Pakistan. In 1 977, when she was 
contesting the presidency of the 
Union, it was put to her that the 
forces opposing her candidature 
were stronger than her supporters. 

If she waited a term she would 
stand a better chance. “No," she 
countered. "If I don't fight now. [ 
won't be able to later on either. If I 
want to win 1 have to be prepared 
to fight, and anyway, who says I'm 
going to lose?" She didn'L

work of 14 major international 
Soviet fronts. 72 lesser ones and 
more than 140 national "peace" 
committees which, in the words of 
EP. Thompson, a vigorous cam- 
paigner for European .nuclear 
disarmament, "have never 
throughout their whole 30-year 
existence fluttered an eyelash 
against any action of Soviet 
militarism" 

It was founded in Paris as the 
Partisans of Peace and held its first 
world congress there in April. 
1949 — the very month in which 
Nato was established. After the 
Sheffield fiasco, the WPC was 
expelled first from Paris, where it 
had been accused of “fifth column 
activities", and then Vienna. After 
the Soviet invasion of Czecho- 
slovakia in 1968 it decided to 
confine its set-piece congresses to 
East European capitals. Only now 
is a renewed foray being made into 
a Nato country, under the guise of 
a contribution to the International 
Year of Peace, one of those bizarre 
celebrations which the United 
Nations often favours as a sub- 
stitute for effective international 
action. 

Denmark has been the focus for 
the Soviet “peace” offensive at 
least since 1981 when Vladimir 
Merkulov. a Soviet embassy of- 
ficial. was caught channelling 


KGB funds for “nuclear-free 
zone" advertisements to the Co- 
operation Committee for Peace 
and Security (SAK). This is the 
Danish ann of the WPC and is the 
official convening body for the 
Copenhagen congress. 

The international, preparatory 
committee of 21 contains at feast 
15 people who are members either 
of the WPC or the Communist 
Party, or both. Its titular head is 
the 90-year-old Hermod Lannung. 
who is also being run as a 
candidate for the Nobel Peace 
Prize in an attempt to repeat the 
Soviet triumph last October, 
when, tothe astonishment of Nato 
governments, the prize was 
awarded to the co-chairmen of 
International Physicians for the 
Prevention of Nuclear War, an- 
other organization promoted and 
supported by the Kremlin “peace" 
machine. 

There are signs that the people 
of Denmark nave woken up to 
what is going on. On August 1 7 the 
daily Jyllands-Posten reported 
that Lannung had been named (m 
a protest to the Nobel Institute) as 
one of the few wartime MPs who 
chose to belong to the German- 
Dan ish Association, set up after 
the Nazi occupation in 1940. 
Lann ling’s involvement was fully 
documented in 1947, but until 


now his wartime activities have 
been overshadowed by his sub- 
sequent chairmanship of the Dan- 
ish-Soviet Friendship Society. 

La nn ting's attempts to vouch 
for the integrity of die forthcom- 
ing congress— which shows every . 
sign of gross stage-management — ; 
have foiled to secure the participa- 
tion of the Social Democratic 
party. Its spokesman. Lasse Budtz 
MP, has declared: “There is an 
overwhelming majority of com- 
munists on the committee which 
is preparing the congress . . . The 
wpe is. as is well known, directed 
from Moscow, and in our work we 
wish to put pressure on both sides 
in the aims race." 

Inger Staahl, a leading Danish 

campaigner against nuclear weap- 
ons, has also discovered that "all 
the international ■ preparatory 
meetings are and will be con- 
trolled by die WPC ... it is the 
Soviet Ministry of Foreign Affairs 
which is holding the Congress." 

But it is not enough for Danes to 
protest against this insolent at- 
tempt to use a Nato capital as a 
base for the dissemination of anti- 
Western propaganda. Poul 
Schtuter, the Danish prime min- 
ister most be persuaded by his 
friends and allies to deal with this 
Soviet Troian horse as decisively 
as Attlee did in 1950.

Enoch’s ears 

Enoch Powell tells me that he is 
becoming hand of hearing. With 
his usual exactitude, he explains 
that, strictly speaking, what 
changes is not hearing, but the 
brain's ability to distinguish be- 
tween different groups of sounds. 
Fortunately, he can still hear 
everything that goes on in the 
House - or perhaps not so 
fortunately, since so many par- 
liamentary exchanges these days 
would be better left unheard. 

Time span 

The East London River Crossing 
inquiry yesterday became the 
longest ever into a road scheme. 
Environmental and residential 
pressure groups objecting not to 
the bridge, between Newham and 
Greenwich, but to the proposed 
motorway which will run through 
houses and an ancient woodland, 
have made the going tough for the 
Department of Transport. The 
inquiry started last September and 
b> tomorrow will have saz for 144 , 
days, overtaking a Leeds bypass ' 
inquiry three years ago. Barrister 
Nigel Madcod. the DoTs leading 
counsel in both cases, has a lot 
more work ahead, since the in- 
quiry is likely to continue until 
Christmas. 

Home truth 

All those Norwegians who dem- 
onstrated against Mrs Thatcher 
and her stand on sanctions against 
South Africa last week might care 
to lake a look at their own 
country's record. The Amster- 
dam-based Shipping Research Bu- 
reau reports that of ihe 83 tankers 
which delivered crude oil to South 
Africa last year. 46 were Norwe- 
gian-owned. 

All of a piece 

Nicholas Baker need not go naked 
into next month's Tory conference 
chamber after all. The Conser- 
vative MP for North Dorset, who. 
as 1 reported an Tuesday. lost a 
number of suits at a dry-cleaner 
which had suspended operations, 
has been reunited with them, 
thanks to a Westminster Council 
trading enforcement officer. Da- 
vid Wecdon. "I wasn't looking 
forward to starting the next par- 
liamentary session threadbare," 
Baker confessed PHS 


Of course, the parallel did not fit 
the events last month when her 
supporters took to the streets in an 
ill-prepared attempt to overthrow 
General Zia's regime. That was a 
round she lost. But. ironically, the 
circumstances- of her arrest — 
which sparked off the crisis —and 
her surprising release last week, 
suggest that in round . two she 
could fare differently. 

To understand why this should 
be so. it is important to see the 
developments in perspective. The 
Benazir phenomenon is not 
unique: it is at one level typical of 
sub-continental politics, the es- 
sence of which is soap opera. 
Elections are contested by the 
heirs to great families and inher- 
itance - is the sine qua non of 
success. Hence India has her 
Gandhis. Sri Lanka her Band- 
anna ikes. Bangladeshher Mujibs 
and 3 as, and Pakistan, of course, 
her Bhuttos. Political struggles are 
a contest between the current head 
of these families and challengers 
to their supremacy, be they mili- 
tary usurpers or political interlop- 
ers. History has so for found in 
favour of the dynasty: the political 
dans always come out on top. 

In Pakistan, the aspiring 
"heroine" of the soap opera is 
Benazir Bhutto. 33, unmarried 
rich and ambitious. Nine years 
ago her father was toppled from 
office, two years later he was 
hanged Tragedy has added to her 
allure. The villain of the plot is 
General Zia. He is clever but 
disarming, he smiles a lot but he 
is ambitious, too. It was his army 
which overthrew Zulfikar Ali 
Bhuuo. Consequently, the hatred 
between “the daughter” and “the 
usurper" is implacable. 

In April. Benazir Bhutto, tem- 
pered by years of arrest and exile 
in Europe, returned home at- 
tended by Western television 
crews and correspondents, and 
was welcomed by millions. Her 
marches and rallies devdoped 
into a triumphant procession. 
From the Khyber to Karachi she 
stirred an apathetic audience into 
life. And in Ihe euphoria she threw 
down the gauntlet: elections by the 
autumn. 

Bui the general was unflappable. 
His army merely watched from 
the roadside. He had his awn 
limited democracy in operation, 
manned by his supporters. They 
may have been anxious but he was

confident that Benazir Bhutto's 
bubble would burst Then came 
the fasting month of Ramadan — 
the enforced lull before the prom- 
ised storm. The battle to fallow 
was to be the thrilling end. 

It was. in fact a damp squib. 
General Zia retained support of 
the army, big business, the cleigy 
and most of the bureaucracy. Even 
his civilian politicians, who may 
chaff at his undiluted authority, 
preferred him to Miss Bhutto. Of 
course, he does not have her mass 
popular support but he does not 
need it either. He is in power. 
Benazir Bhutto, on the other hand, 
is dependent on what the Paki- 
stani people can do for her. 


Thai is as for as the story has 
developed. But henceforth, time 
and events are running against 
General Zia. When he arrested 
Miss Bhutto his government cast 
off its democratic dothing. 
Simultaneously, the regime in- 
dicated its fear of her support. 
When they released heron the eve 
of her appearance in court, they 
merely underlined their anxieties. 
Consequently, they have estab- 
lished her as the only credible 
alternative to themselves. From 
their standpoint, ignoring her 
would have been wiser. Now each 
time they act against her they will 
only add to her stature. 

In future, even the demands of 


the general's regime could work in 
Miss Bhutto's favour. He is 
committed to elections in 1990 
with permission for all The politi- 
cal parties to participate. If he 
wishes to maintain his credibility 
he will have to stand by this. But if 
the events last month achieved 
anything, it was to ensure that, 
given the opportunity some time 
in the future, the Pakistani people 
will vote for Miss Bhutto. General 
Zia has elevated her to the popular 
symbol of democracy. 

Indeed there could be a yet 
more critical factor operating on 
her side. In August, as previously 
in 1983, the protests against the 
continuation of military rule 
emerged principally in Sind and 
were supported by developments 
in Baluchistan and the North West 
Frontier. On both occasions it was 
the cool response of Punjab,. the 
dominant Pakistani province, 
which ensured their failure. That - 
not only kept General Zia and his 
army in power, but had two 
further effects. It reinforced the 
intimate and intricate relationship 
between Punjab and the 70 per 
cent Punjabi army, while exac- 
erbating the growing divide be- 
tween the central province and the 
resL 

Under General Zia, a Punjabi 
and a soldier, those trends can. 
only accelerate. It would need a 
Sind! or a Baluchi or a Rathah to 
come to power by a free and 
credible election to stem the rot 
Of alt Pakistan's federal-minded 
civilian politicians Miss Bhutto 
alone could achieve this. And, at. 
least in part, she has General 23a' 
to thank. In the months and years 
ahead her countrymen will 
increasingly realize that fecL 
Of course that does not mean 
that Miss Bhutto's campaign, 
which resumes on Sunday, will 
succeed in forcing elections. Nor 
that she can merely sit back and 
wait until 1990. She has still to 
tackle the deep-seated fissures in 
her ranks, the lack of organization 
and the absence of dearait poli- 
cies. Most important of all. she has 
to find safe issues to rally her 
support Without such periodic 
clarion calls the faithful might lose 
heart: three or four years is a long 
time under a wily dictatorship. 

Yet what- it does mean is that 
even in retreat , after round one, 
Miss Bhutto has put General Zia 
on file defensive_ That is why the 
defections from her ranks. — 
though they may attract publicity 
— have not bled her party. She 
carries the Bhutto banner and now 
the mantle of martyrdom. And if' 
she is prepared to fight, she may 
well ensure that yet another sub- 
continental soap opera ends with 
victory for the dynasty. Thai is 
why the story of her political 
battles at the Union in Oxford 
might hold a salutary warning for 
General Zia.

David Owen's speech to the Social 
Democrats on Wednesday was 
one of the most important as well 
as one of the most accomplished 
he has made. It displayed.some of 
his best qualities of seriousness 
and firmness of purpose and 
staked out the Alliance claim to 
the centre ground with unusual 
clarity and force. It also turned a 
dangerous political corner. 

The SDP arrived in Harrogate 
in distinctly poor 'shape — divided 
and uncertain about its identity 
and sagging m ibe.opmion polls. 
The row about nuclear weapons in 
the summer did a lot of damage, 
not so much because of me 
intrinsic importance of the issue 
but because it reopened all the old 
wounds. Relations with the Lib- 
erals, the split between the left and 
right of the party, Owen's high- 
handed personality and .the per- 
sonal tensions between the- Gang 
of Four — all these issues, sup- 
posedly laid torest for the next 18 
months, were revived in a particu- 
. larly acute form. The rank and file, 
demoralized and confused, feared 
that the party was drifting into a 
right-centre limbo, without a clear 
identity or purpose,* mere reposi- 
tory for disgruntled Tories or 
possibly no more than the vehicle 
for an Owen ego trip: 

This frame of mind explains 
some of the disaffection to be 
observed at the beginning of the - 
Harrogate conference The old 
merger controversy was m full cry 
again. No doubt a total union with 
the Liberals had been postponed 
until after the next election, but 
wouldn't the Alliance regain some 
lost credibility and elan if only it 
had an “Alliance leader" in the 
run-up to the election? 

The answer, from any rational 
person, is “certainly not". The 
reality — which the public is 
perfectly well able to comprehend 
— is that the question of an 
“Alliance leader" is an irrele- 
vance: If the two parties perform 
exceptionally well and are able to 
form a government, then the 
leader of the party with the most 
seats (almost certainly David 
Steel) becomes prime minister. If 
they do slightly less well, that each 
David takes a portfolio in a 
coalition, presumably more or less 
on the same leveL It is only if they 
make no new impact at all that a 
hassle will break out overa merger 
—a matter of interest to the parties 
and leaders themselves, but one to 
which everyone else will by then 
be pretty indifferent To ride, for 
so little gain, a violent row at the 
present and abandon at this late 
stage the perfectly respectable line 
that the Alliance offers a reason^ 
able demonstration of coalition in 
action would be preposterous: But 
the feet 'that the speeches of Roy 
Jenkins, and to a lesser extent 
Shirley Williams, were coded at- 
tempts to prepare the ground for 
this case, and the feet that they 
were so well received, showed how 
dangerous the situation had be- 
come. 

An even more significant piece 
of writing on the wall was the 
genuinely spontaneous ovation

Labour in search of an Ulster line 


Neil Kinnock has not. to put it 
mildly, given Northern Ireland a 
high priority on the rcfeshioned 
agenda which he has designed for 
the run-up to the next general 
election. But Northern Ireland has 
an unfortunate habit of springing 
unpleasant surprises on poli- 
ticians who hope to keep it safely 
out of sight and mind. 

Kinnock's staff are currently 
engaged in a feverish damage 
limitation exercise over the disclo- 
sure that a party frontbench 
spokesman. Stuart Bell, is to stare 
a fringe platform at next month's 
Blackpool conference with one 
Tommy Carroll. Carroll is at the 
moment a councillor for Sinn 
Fein, the Provisional IRA's politi- 
cal wing: he has served a jail 
sentence for car bombing an 
electricity showroom in Armagh. 

Labour's leadership is. in pri- 
vate. furious that such a hostage 
has been so easily given to 
electoral fortune. In public, it 
claims that Bell will use, the 
occasion to make clear the party's 
view on terrorism. Bell is from the 
party's right and is moreover 
tough-minded and humane: if he 
docs keep the engagement, it may 
not turn out to be the propaganda 
coup to which Sinn Fein looks 
forward. 

Bui such an outcome would not 
disguise the extent of Labour's 
problem on this front As the 
Anglo Irish agreement was being 
signed last year. Kinnock was 
establishing a labour position 
which was fiercely critical of both 


unionists and Sinn Fein. He 
condemned Enoch Powell's talk of 
treachery as inflammatory and 
irresponsible, adding that he 
would treat Labour supporters of 
Sinn Fein in similar fashion. 

This announcement does not 
seem to have had much effect and 
certainly does not seem to pre- 
clude platform-sharing. It would 
have brought a. wry smile to the 
lips of Ken Livingstone, who had 
addressed a Labour conference 
fringe meeting on this very subject 
a few weeks before. He described 
events in Northern Ireland as 
“your basic liberation war" and 
said it was “obscene" to see people 
scuttling round the fringe of the 
labour _ movement questioning 
Sinn Fein's socialist credentials. 

The defenders of the party 
establishment view had. he said, 
experienced a rougher ride with 
each annual conference: the tra- 
ditional view was being steadily 
eroded. Figures in the party 
hierarchy still complained about 
contacts with Sinn Fein. But Sinn 
Fein had been on the platform at a 
Euro-election campaign meeting 
he had attended: the party's senior 
spokesman. Peter Archer, had met 
Sinn Fein officials . . . 

Labour suffers from a a variant 
of the problem which faces all the 
democratic parties which have to 
compose a policy on Northern 
Ireland. Labour experiences the 
difficulty’ in an acute form only 
because of the historic connection 
between the left and the Irish 
nationalist movements. 



Bell: sharing a platform with 
a convicted ERA bomber 

At the last general election, 
100.000 people voted for Sinn 
Fein —a substantial bloc vote fora 
party explicitly in fevour of kill- 
ing. which no party orgovemment 
can entirely ignore. The sharp rise 
in Sinn Fein's electoral support, 
which began at the time of the 
prison hunger strikes in 1981, has 
turned out to have staying power. 

Each mainland party responds 
to this dilemma in different ways. 
The government has contem- 
plated proscribing Shm Fein al- 
together — and may have to 
reopen the question again if the 
Hillsborough Agreement fails to 
shore up the Social Democratic 
and Labour Party. The Alliance 
leaves Sinn Fein alone. Labour's 
left-wing talk to Sinn Fein when 
they feci like it while the party 
leadership do so as infrequently as 

i- 


possible. fearing each contact will 
cause an em harassing fuss. 

The left-wingers sympathetic to 
Sinn Fein tend to be articulate, 
and magnets for media attention. 
Less well-noticed are the Labour 
MPs from northern England and 
Strathclyde who depend on the ■ 
votes of Protestant working class 
communities. The party's activists 
and MPs are broadly divided 
between those repelled by contact 
with Sinn Fein, those who ad- 
vocate friendly contact to ^ the 
IRA towards more peaceful paths, 
and a smaller number who see 
republican paramilia tries as a 
revolutionary vanguard. 

In these circa instances, it is not 
surprising that the party's formal 
policy is mildly. nationalist while 
fully supporting the government’s 
defence of the Hillsborough 
Agreement ra the Commons. Dur- 
ing thepast 18 months, an attempt 
has been made from the left of me 
parliamentary party to drift policy 
towards a more republican line: 
Earlier this year, the centre arid 
right stalled this, leaving the party 
stance unchanged. 

What is surprising about this 
week's row is that Bell was one of 
the people instrumental in keeping 
it that way. Hischoice of platform 
companion is more likely to 
reflect -his -party’s prevailing 
confusion about paramilitary v£ 
olcnce and hs political parties 
than any forthcoming major 
change in policy..

given to Dick Taveme when he 
introduced his tax proposals. The 
remarkable spectacle of this mid- 
. die-class audience cheering to the 
.echo a scheme which was cal- 
culated to hit their own poekets in 
order to relieve poverty says 
something about the SDPs 
present state of mind. The im- 
mediate point about the tax 
scheme, irrespective of its tech- 
nical merits or its appeal to the 
country, is that it meets so many 
of the present doubts —it gives the 
party something distinctive to sell 
on the doorsteps, it lightens the 
grey, rational mass of SDP policies 
with a spark of idealism, and h 
satisfies the left of centre that the 
party is not slipping into sub- 
Thatcherism. In endorsing ft so 
loudly the conference was sending 
Owen a very dear message. 

It seems that he has received it I 
. imagine he must have had consid- 
erable doubts about the plan. And 
any practical politician would 
inevitably share them. It is a risky 
business to propose radical tax 
reform at the best of times. To do 
so at a time of economic recession 
and in such a way as to penalize 
the hard core of your own support 
(in this case those earning between 
one and a half and two times the 
national average) looks foolhardy. 
It is doubtful in any case how 
- many voters, except the poor 
themselves, really accept that 
* genuine poverty exists in this 
country. People who claim to be 
poor are generally thought to be 
bad managers or scroungers or 
getting by quite nicely on the black 
economy. 

Why, then, has Owen bought 
and backed the package? For one 
thing there remains, contrary to all 
the stories, a strong idealistic 
strain in his own personality. For 
another, he probably judged that 
he had to. If he had disowned the 
scheme and stuck in his toes, as he 
did on the Polaris issue, be would 
have been dangerously out of step 
with his followers and the mutter- 
ings about his leadership would 
have increased, along with pres- 
sure for new Alliance gimmicks 
before the election and immediate 
merger after it 

The most Interesting motive, 
however, was displayed in his 
speech; he spotted the political 
possibilities of the idea and pro- 
ceeded to give an impressive 
demonstration of how to exploit 
them. The picture of a lax scheme 
designed primarily to relieve pov- 
erty was subtly changed to a 
reform whose first objective is 
modernization. The primary aim 
now is to sweep away a system 
that is “unfair, inefficient and 
incomprehensible" and replace it 
with one.-fbat is primarily in- 
tended to increase prosperity and 
simplify matters for the taxpayer. 
The relief of poverty now becomes 
a bonus. Elaborated and sold in 
this way. asa similar package has

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

MR HATTERSLEV’S RABBIT 


Wider issues of of visa restrictions 


Before the Labour Party’s 
national executive approved 
its policy document for this 
year’s party conference, Mr 
Roy Hattersley warned the 
shadow cabinet’s strategy 
meeting that “committing the 
party to doing specific things 
at specific cost at specific 
times” would not improve its 
electoral prospects. His main 
target was Mr Michael 
Meacher. the shadow social 
services secretary. ■ Mr 
Meacher had been promoting 
a plan which, apart from more 
pensions and child benefit, 
encompassed everything from 
a comprehensive new disabil- 
ity allowance to a restored 
death grant Mr Hattersley 
won. 

Yesterday,, when Mr 
Hattersley gave the party’s tax 
and social security policy a 
public outing, the disability 
benefit and most other benefit 
reforms were pushed back to 
the status of an agenda for 
action that is unlikely to be 
reached — except m canvass- 
ing on the voter's doorstep. 

Instead, he offered the plain 
fare of traditional extra spend- 
ing commitments: higher pen- 
sions and higher child benefit 
Only the extension of the long- 
term rate of social ' security 
benefits, to those still un- 
employed after more than a 
year, remains in the first stage 
proposals. These are the pro- 
posals Labour claims can be 
financed by soaking only the 
top 5 per cent of earners. 

The main object is to por- 
tray Labour's policy as prac- 
tical and credible (and costless 
to the overwhelming majority 
of taxpayers) in contrast to the 
Social Democratic Party's 


The US Stale Department's 
decision to expel 25 named 
Soviet diplomats at the United 
Nations is bound to lower the 
already frigid temperature of 
superpower relations still fur- 
ther and push the promised 
Reagan-Gorbachov summit 
into the even more- distant 
future. If this is what it was 
calculated to do as the next 
response to the case of Nicho- 
las Daniloff, then it may be 
considered something of a 
diplomatic masterstroke from 
a strong-arm administration. 

. It is a measure to which the 
Kremlin has no direct re- 
sponse: the Soviet Union 
accommodates no inter- 
national organization com- 
parable to the United Nations. 
Its timing, just as the Soviet 
Foreign Minister arrived in 
New York, was likely to 
unnerve the Soviet side to the 
maximum degree. And there is 
the option of raising the stakes 
higher. In March the US had 
insisted that the Soviet mis- 
sion to the UN be reduced 
from 275 to 170. The 25 
expulsions just announced 
leave another 80 to go. 

Yet doubts remain about the 
coherence of either the Ameri- 
can or the Soviet policy in the 
weeks running up to what 
looks increasingly like a phan- 
tom summit. Announcing the 
expulsions, the Slate Depart- 
ment spokesman insisted that 
they were not connected with 
the arrest in Moscow of 
Daniloff. They were, he said, 
merely the logical consequence 
of the Soviet Union's failure to 
reduce its UN staff earlier. 

If that is true, and the 


complex and thoroughgoing 
reform of the tax and social 
security . system.- which Dr 
Owen manfully tried to rescue 
from misunderstanding on 
Wednesday. The contrast is 
indeed instructive. 

Dr Owen's comprehensive 
plan was estimated to have a 
gross annual cost . Of £4.3 
billion, most of which would 
come from the reform of 
allowances and integration of 
employees' national insurance 
contributions into income tax. 
As a result, it appeared that 
some married couples with an 
income of £16,000 might lose 
from the reforms. 

Labour's first stage appears 
to cost roughly the same and 
yet only those with a single 
income above £27,000 would 
suffer. And yet, tax rates at the 
old maximum of 83 per cent 
(98 per cent for investment 
income) will not return. 

It is not clear exactly how or 
when Labour will phase out 
the married man’s allow- 
ance — the proceeds presum- 
ably going to higher individual 
allowances — and abolish the 
upper earnings limit on na- 
tional insurance contributions. 
Somehow, the sums do not 
appear to add up unless Mr 
Hatiersley is looking for un- 
realistically high returns from 
capital taxes. 

The greater contrast, how- 
ever. is in the value for money 
of the two proposals. For its 
gross £4.3 billion, the SDP 
aims to achieve a full 
restructuring of benefits to 
give better and simpler sup 
port to more poor famili es in 
or out of work. It would cut 
swathes through the old social 
security bureaucracy and sepa- 

TOUCHE 

United States really wants the 
summit, then the riming of the 
announcement could scarcely 
have been less fortunate. If it is 
un true, or merely a diplomatic 
half-truth, then the American 
side appears to have lost an 
opportunity to counter pub- . 
lidy the impression of weak- ‘ 
ness it created by agreeing to 
the simultaneous release from 
prison of Daniloff and the 
Soviet scientist, Zakharov. 

Expulsions are a time- 
honoured way of expressing 
disapproval of another state’s 
conduct. Their use would not 
have been inappropriate in 
this case, so why be reticent 
about the motive? If that 
reticence reflects the need of 
the administration simulta- 
neously to placate hawks who 
want no compromise over 
Daniloff (and forget the sum- 
mit), and those who hesitate 
before allowing the treatment 
of an individual however 
unjust, to interfere with state- 
to-siate relations, then it is 
time for a thorough assess- 
ment of priorities in Wash- 
ington. Otherwise, the wires of 
US-Soviet relations threaten 
to become even more hope- 
lessly tangled than they al- 
ready are. 

But the apparent incoher- 
ence of US policy in the wake 
of the Daniloff affair is as 
nothing compared with the 
conflicting signals emanating 
from the Kremlin. Moscow’s 
response to President Reagan's 
personal intervention on be- 
half of Daniloff was to bring 
formal charges of spying 
against him. Mr Gorbachov 
meanwhile was eschewing all 


rate means testing. The inte- 
grated tax and benefit system 
should also reduce that great 
disincentive, the poverty trap, 
to the minimum that can be 
achieved in a welfare state. 
And the SDP even appears to 
offer a higher child benefit to 
the needy because the benefit 
is taxable in the hands of 
families with two earners. 

Labour’s first stage pro- 
posals do none of these things. 
Yet they contain the same 
structural drawback: abolish- 
ing the married man’s allow- 
ance without substituting the 
transferable allowance pro- 
posed by the Government to 
aid families where one spouse 
stays at home. ' 

The poor value for money 
under Labour’s plans com- 
pared to the SDFs is easily 
explained. Labour has empha- 
sized universal benefits 
whereas the SDP, like the 
Government’s less than am- 
bitious reform, concentrates 
on targeting the help where it is 
needed. 

The SDP has at least grasped 
the nettle that a comprehen- 
sive attack on poverty through 
rite welfare system, rather than 
through enterprise, requires 
some contribution from those 
who are only modestly af- 
fluent Labour is still trying to 
pretend that the poor can be 
relieved by the rich. That 
ought to help Dr Owen in his 
task. It must also invite the 
question that, if the rich have 
already been soaked to provide 
Labour's quick boost to 
universal benefits, who would 
pay for the rest of its burgeon- 
ing spending programme? 


public comment on the ques- 
tion, insisting instead that he 
was entirely in favour of the 
planned summit meeting — so 
long, that is, as it produced a 
result, in the form of an arms 
control agreement that he 
could take back to Moscow. 

. Soviet officials and com- 
mentators have seemed un- 
certain from whom 1 they 
should take their cue. There 
has been pre-summit op- 
timism and pessimism in 
equal measure. But they all 
agree that responsibility for the 
final decision lies in Wash- 
ington, by which they mean 
that the United States should 
capitulate — whether on 
Zakharov or on a nuclear test 
ban is not entirely dear. 

Moscow is right to say that 
the -solution to the present 
superpower impasse lies in 
Washington, but only because 
ir is still Washington that holds 
the initiative. Zakharov is still 
technically under arrest 
(though that advantage was 
reduced somewhat when the 
Danfloff equation was con- 
ceded). The ceiling on Soviet 
UN diplomats still stands, and 
the arms control cards are all 
in US hands. 

If the principle that the 
individual is as important as : 
the collective is to be upheld, 
as it should be, then a modi- 
cum of movement on arms 
control might provide a more 
fruitful area for a summit- 
saving compromise than the 
case of Nicholas Daniloff 
What the United States has to 
dedde is whether a summit in 
present circumstances is worth 
even so modest a concession. 


THE KINROSS DISASTER 


To judge from the still sketchy 
accounts of the Kinross min- 
ing disaster in South Africa in 
which at least {82 miners died, 
there arc grounds for at least 
suspecting that mismanage- 
ment. lax safety standards and 
inadequate training of miners 
and supervisors were among 
the causes of the tragedy. 
Given such suspicions (which 
were subsequently fostered by 
the secretive attitude of the 
Kinross mine management) 
and given that only 5 of the 
182 miners killed were white, 
it would not have been surpris- 
ing if many people had in- 
stantly drawn the conclusion 
that the dead were the victims 
of a racial callousness en- 
couraged by apartheid. 

Yet few people have, in fact, 
drawn large general conclu- 
sions about South Africa from 
the disaster. When lives are 
lost in a natural disaster which 
no-one intended, the normal 
human reaction is to forget 
political or other disputes and 
to emphasise our common 
humanity. It seems in bad 
taste to seek political capital 
from 1S2 deaths. 

Another may be that ex- 
ternal critics have been guided 
by Mr Cyril Ramaphosa, the 
g^pcral secretary of South 


Africa's National Union, of 
Mine workers, a black union 
legally recognised in 1983. Mr 
Ramaphosa has, indeed, been 
sharply criticaL For the mo- 
ment however, his criticism 
has been directed at the com- 
pany and the events which led 
up to the accident rather than 
at the surrounding social and 
political environment 

Thai emphasis is surely right 
- for the moment The initial 
task of the judicial inquiry 
established by the South Af- 
rican government must be to 
discover exactly what hap- 
pened at Kinross . 

The underground fire seems 
to have been started when a 
welding accident set alight 
polyurethane foam lining 
which then gave off toxic gas. 
Why was a toxic and inflam- 
mable substance used as lining 
in such a confined space? Was 
it simple negligence? Or did 
cost enter into it? Or what? 

It is reported that there was 
no fire extinguisher at the site 
of the welding operation? Was 
this because the company’s 
safety rules were inadequate 
on this point? 

It is likely, of course, that the 
inquiry's attempts to answer 
these ’specific questions will 
lead it to investigate wider 


issues. At least 66 of foe dead, 
for instance, are reported to be 
foreign workers from Lesotho 
and Mozambique. Are these 
migrant workers literate? If 
not, are special measures taken 
to ensure that they understand 
emergency safety precautions? 

Then, job reservation in 
mining has broken down in 
practice (though white miners 
still earn about five times as 
much as blacks.) This means' 
that mining companies have 
an economic incentive to pul 
blacks in supervisory po- 
sitions. Have they given hew 
black supervisors adequate 
training in health and safety 
measures? 

The South African Chamber 
of Mines, finally, claims a 
greatly improved record of 
safety in recent years." Accord- 
ing to its figures, fatality rates 
in gold mining, which takes 
place at extreme depths and at 
high temperatures, have 
dropped below 1.03 per thou- 
sand; compared to the US coal 
mining rate of 0.61 per thou- 
sand. But the Mineworkers 
dispute some of these figures. 

Indeed, because the inquiry 
will be looking at the industry 
that underpins apartheid, it 
will tell us much about South 
Africa. i 


From Mr JR. HD. Shah 
Sir, Lest it be ’ thought that 
informed or responsible opinion 
within the ethnic communities of 
Britain is againsz immigration 
control then nothing could be 
farther from the truth. Indeed the 
need for such control albeit 
subject to proper safeguards, is 
widely recognized 

The question of visa restrictions 
for nationals of India and four 
other Asian and African countries 
is not, however, primarily about 
immigration. It raises certain 
wider or fundamental issues. For 
example, the right of people 
settled here to be visited by their 
kith and ion is likely to be 
seriously affected by' the new 
measures, in as much as there are 
bound to be delays and frustra- 
tions experienced at British con- 
sular posts in those countries. 

More importantly, there is also 
bound to be an advene effect on 
the contribution, not readily 
appreciated, to our economy 
made by such visitors. Even 
“Third World” travellers have a 
tourist value in terms of expen- 
diture on transportation, shop- 
ping. hotels and amenities, not to 
speak of other actual or potential 
benefits they bring to this country. 

The use, in this connection, of 
such language as “thousands of 
Nigerians or Indians running 
amok on the streets in their 
anxiety to acquire a British visa" 
(Kate Finch's feature article, 
September 15) merely lends sup- 
port to the suspicion that the 
Government is as much moti- 
vated by the latent racism which 
pervades all levels of our society as 
are those who write off with 
contempt the numerous but un- 
welcome visitors to these shores 
from the poorer countries of the 

wo rid.

From the Executive Secretary of 
the UK Council for Overseas 
Student Affairs 

Sir, Not only will the introduction 
of visas for visitors from India, 
Pakistan, Bangladesh, Ghana and 
Nigeria affect tourists, and hence 
lead to a drop in tourist trade 
figures; it will also affect students 
coming to the UK from these 
countries for further and higher 
education. All this at a time when 
the Foreign and Commonwealth 
Office is keen to wdcome overseas 
students. Surely a classic case, of 


British Library 

From Mr A. R. A. Hobson 
Sir, I sometimes wonder what 
Lord Thomas and the other 
eminent signatories of his letter 
(September 5) read in the British 
Library. Their experiences must 
be different from mine. 

On September 4 1 went there to 
consult ] 1 books for which I had 
lodged tickets on a special visit the 
day before. Of the 1 1 I received 
eight. One had been missing and 
not replaced since 1970; two were 
stored at Woolwich and had not 
arrived. Of those I was given one 
lacked volume 2 and another 
volume 1. Another had the upper 
cover off and was tied together 
with tape. 

Is this what Lord Thomas calls 
“service to scholars”? At least 
when all the holdings are together 
in one building one might hope 
that books would be delivered in 
less than 24 hours. 


Academic boycott 

From Mr J. G. Watson 
Sir. Dr Conor Cruise O'Brien's 
welcome condemnation of the 
academic boycott of South African 
scholars (September 6) is rather 
unfair in assuming that the

Drivers at risk 

From Mr Pierre Tester 
Sir. If answering the telephone in a 
car on the motorway can be 
classed as driving without due care 
and attention, may we please have 
some guidelines as to what else 
places a driver at risk. 

How about, smoking, dropping 
the burning end down the side of 
the seat, filling a pipe, drinking hot 
coffee, necking, cleaning your 
glasses, or having the stereo so 
loud you cannot hear the fire 
engine trying to get by? 

Thar are. of course, other 
hazards, like helping your wife out 
of her fur coat, because the car is 
loo hot, without removing her seal 
bell, dealing swiftly with a child 
who has car sickness, looking at a 
map because your wife aid she 
knew the way like the back of her 
hand, but seemingly was wearing 
gloves, or trying to disuade an 
oversize labrador from licking the 
bark of your neck. 

I understand that I cannot use 
the hard shoulder except in an 
emergency. Do any of these 
qualify please? 

Yours faithfully.

one arm of Government not 
knowing what the other arm is 
doing. 

It isn't only the FCO that is in 
dismay; educational institutions 
are also extremely concerned at 
the effects, both in the short and 
long term. Frequently examina- 
tion results are only known in the 
early summer and firm offers of 
places only given some lime afro* 
that. . 

Given that, in the countries 
affected, visa queues for settlers 

have been as long as two years and 

are frequently six- months, the 
chaos of being able to travel in 
time to begin courses in Septem- 
ber or October are slim. Bad news 
for the students of course, but bad 
news for planners in institutions 
and in education also. 

Worst of all, there seems to have 
been no thought given to students 
presently on course, who may be 
abroad vi sting parents or on a held 
study trip connected with their 
course. Suddenly, by whim of 
Government, they find they are 
“visa nationals" who may have to 
try and obtain a visa in ' the few 
weeks before term begins. 

British education abroad has 
already been tarnished by the 
actions of the Government. The 
attempts by the FCO to improve 
our reputation abroad now seems 
to have been sabotaged by the 
Home Office’s ill-timed and ill- 
considered actions.

Sir, Mr Stocks (September 12) 

. complains that the Government 
lacks compassion fry introducing a 
visa system for certain nationals. 
He argues that potential visitors to 
. Britain may have to make difficult 
and expensive journeys to our 
High Commissions and em- 
bassies. 

But is it really compassionate to 
allow someone to travel half way 
across the world, and only on 
arrival to tell him he may not 
enter? And why should the British 
taxpayers' compassion extend to 
making good deficiencies in die 
postal and transport systems 
maintained by the taxpayers of the 
affected countries?

Lord Thomas proposes linking 
St Pancras to Bloomsbury by that 
admirable pre-Victorian inven- 
tion, the railway. A sort of railway 
has been in operation in Oxford 
for nearly 40 years connecting the 
Old with the New Bodleian. The 
wear and tear its use has caused to 
the stock, particularly to older and 
more fragile volumes, is already 
painfully apparenL 

Besides, could the British Li- 
brary be relied on to transport 
books promptly to where they 
were needed? In spite of the 
invention of the telephone and the 
internal combustion engine it still 
takes them a minimum of 24 
hours to bring a book from

rif they could rain with places in

Clergy stipends 
over the top 

From the Rev Mark L. HUhTmtt 
Sir, I. recently received notifica- 
tion of my stipend increase for 
1987. 1 am dismayed. The increase 
is £600, from £7,400 to £8,000, a 
rise of 8^ per cent With this 
notification came also a warning 
that clergy may soon be crossing 
the “higher threshold” for tax 
purposes ! 1 

' The Central Stipend Authority, 
a branch of the Church Commis- 
sioners, is raising the level of 
stipends in the Church of England 
to such a 'degree as to seriously 
jeopardise the credibility and 
Integrity of parish clergy amongst 
the poor, the unemployed, the 
young, the old and the dis- 
advantaged. 

The reason for the increase 
above the rale of inflation is, we 

• are told, to compensate for the 
decline in stipends in the early 
1970s. In nay view, over the last 
three or four years this decline has 
been well halted by the benefits of 
the lump sum payments on retire- 
ment. the substantial financial 
help with buying a home, t ogethe r 
with a great increase in pensions, 
which m their own way com- 
pensate for that earlier decline in 
the value of stipends. 

That is not the end, for we also 
enjoy well-nigh absolute security 

• of job and a free bouse (which has 
been variously valued at equiva- 
lent to £3.000 - £5,000 extra per 
annum), in addition to our an- 
nually increasing stipend. 

My diocese pays its clergy at 
nearly the lowest level in the 
Church of England. I am glad 
about this as far as it goes, but 
most dioceses are paying their 
ctergy far more. To do so will not 
attract men with the right motiva- 
tion, nor will these increases help 
to alleviate the considerable quota 
problems for our laity. 

Your readers will be aware that 

on average 86 per cent of the quota 
(money calculated on income or 
potential sent direct to the diocese 
from every parish) is directly 
related to the clergy stipend and 
housing. If the CSA pays these 
unnecessarily high stipends, we 
are adding directly to the financial 
burdens of our parishioners which 
are considerable in many inner 
city parishes, as well as rural 
parishes. 

I would appeal to the CSA to 
reduce the rate of increase in 1987 
to at most the rate of inflation. We 
don't need these rises (and I say 
that as one with two children and a 
mortgage), and these rises are not 
in the interests of our pastoral care 
of and integrity amongst, our 
parishioners. 0 If they- continue we 
shall be in danger of losing touch 
with many of the people of our 
parishes.

Hospital resources 

From Mrs Joyce Radon . 

Sir, The population of West 
Lambeth is not served at St 
Ulemas’ Hospital by five times as 
many doctors as are those of 
districts such as Dewsbury and 
Mid-Staffordshire (article, 
September 5). The published 
statistics, reinforced fry my own 
contacts with fellow patients at the 
hospital, paint a very different 
picture. 

I would suggest that two of the 
five doctors are serving patients 
referred from all over the country 
for complex high technology and 
time-consuming treatment and a 
further two or more are serving 
people from outside the district 
who choose St Thomas' because it 
is • a' teaching hospital of inter- 
national repute, commuters for 
idiom it is convenient to their 
place of work, local patients who 
have- moved away, and people 
from adjacent areas (in particular 
Battersea in Wandsworth) whose 
own hospital (St George's) is 
unfamiliar and difficult to reach 
fry public transport. 

With doctors insisting that St 
Thomas' is not a district hospital 
and administrators insisting that 
its resources should be calculated 
by refere nce to the population of 
West Lambeth, the people of West 
Lambeth are left inadequately 
served. 

Limiting St Thomas's resources 
to the amount justified fry the 
number of people living in West 
Lambeth involves depriving the 
patients from outside the district 
of the opportunity to choose St 
Thomas’, or alternatively depriv- 
ing the people ofWesl Lambeth of 
an adequate health service. 
Diverting resources from popular 
hospitals to less weD-funded areas 
does not have the effect of 
diverting the patients. 

Yours faithfully, 

JOYCE RADON,

No one who cares about the 
taste and the texture of cheese 
allows his appreciation of them to 
be confused by the teste and the

SEPTEMBER 19 1938 

During 1938 and 1939 a series of 
articles appeared on the Court 
Page in which the activities of a 
comfortable, upper middle-class 
family were mused aver ty the 
lady of die household — Mrs 
Miniver. The author was “Jan 
StnUher"(1901-63), later Mrs A. 
K. Placzek . The articles acquired 
considerable popularity: post-war 
generations might find them 
rather cloying. An “Oscar” 
winning film was made, and even 
the aides of Mrs Minuter had to 
admit that she uxw bearable as 
played by Greer Carson 


BACK TO LONDON 

TIBS MINIVERS' 
AUTUMN FLIT 

FROM A CORRESPONDENT 

“Where on earth is Vin?" asked 
Mrs. Miniver. The car was stand- 
ing at the door of Starlings, ready 
to take them back to London. The 
luggage-boot was filled to overflow- 
ing with the well-known parapher- 
nalia of a nursery flit: even Clem's 
genius for stacking had been 
. unable to mala it look like 
anything but a cubish cornucopia. 
Clem was in the driving seat; 
Nannie was at the back, with Toby 
on her and Judy sitting dose 
up beside her to make room for 
Vm.‘ But Vin hiwwJf was nowhere 
to be seen. 

“Wretched boy," said Gem ami- 
ably. “I told him what time we were 
starting.” 

“He went off on his bike directly 
after breakfast,” said Judy, “to 
fetch his knife. He left it over at 
Pound Mill yesterday when he was 
fishing." 

“He may have come in through 
the garden door," said his mother. 
“Mrs. Downce, you might go and 
see if he’s in the kitchen, and m try 
the schoolroom-" . . . 

The schoolroom was empty, but 
around it. like a line of salt wrack, 
fay unmistakable traces of the 
children. As they grew older the 
flotsam of the holidays, without 
diminishing in quantity, changed a 
little in character. There were 
fewer stones and pieces of wood, 
though Toby still collected flints 
with botes through them and sticks 
which had been spirally grooved by 
honeysuckle. On the other hand 
there were now things like empty 
cartridge-cases (spent by Vin on 
rabbits and retrieved fry Toby for 
use in a vast chess-fike game which 
he played, by himself, on the 
squares of the schoolroom lino- 
leum): and on the edge of the 
window-sill lay some hright shreds 
of wool, silk, and tinsel, some 
broken feathers, and the damp- 
marks of a small vice . . ._ 

Of Judy the traces were less 
conspicuous: her activities were 
mostly personal and required little 
gear. But just occasionally she too 
was bitten with the boys’ mania for 
making things, and when that 
happened she got it badly. A few 
days ago. someone had described in 
the “Children’s Hour” how to 
make a reed-pipe out of a jointed 
wheat-stalk, or. failing that, out of 
a drinking straw with a blob of 
sealing wax at one end. The farms 
immediately round Starlings were 
all pasture and hops; so she begged 
a packet of straws from Mrs. 
Downce and used up every one of 
them. To make the vibrating 
tongue was fairly easy, but to space 
the six finger-holes so as to get a 
sol-fa scale proved to be a matter of 
trial and error, exasperating to 
herself and exc ruciating to her 
hearers. She cut her left hand and 
burnt her right one. The floor 
became littered with small square 
chips of straw; there was one now, 
lurking under the table ... As it 
happened, that i fay had been for 
the grown-ups one of great tension 
and anxiety , with the threat of war

air. And Mrs. Miniver had drawn a 
curious comfort from watching 
Judy’s small intent face, bent hour 
after hour over her delicate and 
absorbing task. International tem- 
pers might flame or cool; the 
turning kaleidoscope of time might 
throw mankind’s little coloured 
scraps of belief into new patterns, 
new ideologies; bat the length of 
the vibrating column of air which, 
in a tube of a given calibre, would 
produce C natural — that was one 
of the fixed things , . . 

She went back to the car, and at 
the same moment Vin appeared 
from the direction of the bicycle- 
shed, very much out of breath. 

“Sorry," he sedd shortly, and 
scrambled into place beside Judy. 
Mis. Miniver got in too. The car 
moved off through winding In nag 
towards the arterial road. It was 
certainly a heartbreaking day on 
which to leave the country. It was 
warm and yet fresh; blindfold, one 
could have mistaken it for a 
mo rnin g in early May: but this 
kind of day, she reflected, has a 
more poignant loveliness in au- 
tumn than in spring, because it is a 
receding footfall, a waning moon. 
From the row of fires in front of the 
hop-pickers’ huts the smoke rose 
blue and pungent. The hops were 
nearly all in, the s t ripp ed bines lay 
tumbled and tangled on tho 
ground. One campaign at l*»g* 
thought Mrs. Miniver, was over 
without Woodshed. 

Pool business 

From Mr C. M. Fogg 
Sir. On a recent business visit to 
Kuala Lumpur I took a rest by the 
hotel swimming' pooL 
A Japanese businessman in the 
pool swam over to the side where I 
was sitting and started a conversa- 
tion. As soon as we reached some 
points of mutual interest he 
readied into a pocket of his 
swimming trunks and passed me a 
waterproof business card. 

What chance have we eot 
against such competition in the 
export marketing arena?

Deers’ antlers show lead pollution 


The exclusive dob of so-called 
“biological indicators’' of 
pollution may have a new 
member, the roe deer. 

Just as mussels have- been 
shown to accumulate pollut- 
ants in water, and, many 
species of lichen to be sensitive 
to airborne pollution, so ani- 
mal horn in general and the 
antlers of roe deer in particu- 
lar have begun to show prom- 
ise as suitable material Cor 
monitoring the presence and 
extent of heavy metals in the 
enviroumenL 

Swedish scientists analysed 
a sample series of roe deer 
antlers from two forests for 
lead, cadmium and zinc. The 
15-year study found a consis- 
tency in cadpnmm and zinc 
levels throughout that period, 
bat a decline of about two- 
thirds in lead, almost certainly 
a result of tighter regulations 
on car exhausts. 

The scientists note that the 
“correlation coefficient" for 
lend, that is, the correspon- 
dence between levels in the 
natural environment and in the 
antlers, was as high as 0.95, 
nearly totaL 


From Tony Samstag, Oslo 

Anders were collected from 
two areas: Garpenberg, a min- 
ing area in central/ Sweden, 
and Bogesund, about 10,000 
acres of forest and cultivated 
fields about six miles north- 
east of central Stockholm. 

“As the prevailing winds 
blow toward the north-east, 
Bogesund b highly exposed to 
pollutants carried in air from 
the Stockholm, urban area” 
the scientists write in the 
current issue of Aotbio, the 
journal of the Royal Swedish 
Academy of Sciences. 

Garpenberg is a slightly 
larger, heavily forested region 
on the border between the 
northern and southern taigas. 
A mine producing copper, 
silver and lead lies a mere five 
kilometres to the north of the 
(uniting area. There has been 
copper mining in the region for 
at least 600 years, and the 
reserve area itself contains 
several open mine pits and 
numerous heaps of tailings. 

Logically ennifgh, heavy 
metal concentration in die 
antlers collected from 
Garpenberg were consistently 
higher than those from 


Bogesund. Bid the lead, 
concentrations in both series 
of roe deer an tiers show a 
sharp drop over the study 
period. 

If the average value for the 
Bogesund material in 1968- 
1974 is set at 100, the 
corresponding measure for 
1980-1983 is only 30. Lead 
content has thus dropped by 
two thirds. The reduction b 
not quite so spectacular in the 
Garpenberg material, but even 
here the figure b about 42 per 

fWlt. 

The authors note that “the 
maximum amount of lead al- 
lowed in gasoline was reduced 
by national law from 0.7g/l in 
1968 to 0Ag/l in 1973, and 
then to the present 9.15g/l in 
1981*. 

The startlingly propor- 
tionate changes in the aatier 
samples “provide a rather 
elegant fflustratioa that indus- 
trial changes, in this case 
brough t about by legislation, 
can rapidly lead to better 
environmental conditions*'.

The discoveries have been 
Baade in the eastern of the two 
great stone chambers that He 
w ithi n the huge, mound at 
Knowth, a short distance from 
the famous and snaffar tomb 
dfNewgiange, uear Drogheda. 

Professor George Eogan, 
who has directed the, work at 
Knowth far. more Hum 20 
years, has now co u n ted more 
than a hundred decorated 
stones within the tomb pas- 
sage ami chamber; in addition 
to those forming the highly 
decorated border, arooud the 
base of the mound; he suspects 
that the present total of 270 
decontetLatenes for the site as 
a whole b stiQ too tow, and 
that more than 300 sach pieces 
or ig inal ly existed. . 

The aewly discovered in- 
cised art occurs occarimmliy 
oa the same stones as the well’ 
known pecked designs, but 
often on stones, hitherto 
thought to be/udecorated. 
7ipa p, luzeuges aod other 
an gular motifs have been re- 
corded so for, ' bat not the 
spirals which are one of the 
haflmarhs of west European 
■wgaifhir art, and which are', 
found oh peeked stones. 

Professor Eogan said Oat. 
four types of art could now be 
recognized at Knowth: foe 
incising, loosely spaced peck- 
ing. forming bo definite de- 
signs, angator designs such as 
chevrons and lozenges, and 
cnrviUnear and rectilinear de- 
signs of couventric Hues and 
spirals. AU of the art dates to 
about 2,500-3,000 BC 

The placing of foe art 
suggests a series of fecal 
points, perhaps the led of 
ritaals hi foe ase foe laufo, 
be said. One area lay 'Outside 
foe tomb In a “forecourt? 

Another, .recognized only 
this year, lies half way along 
the passage into foe touk 
where the roof is sfigfrtiy 
higher; there is a tine of force 
stones across foeiloor, audfoe 
orthostats fanning foe wafts 
are all decorated. . 

It has jus t been. found that 
the. capstone at this point 
bears finely presaved chevron, 
decoration. The ornament cov- 
ers only two thirds of the 
surface, sugges t i ng that foe 
slab tajay once have stood 
upright; perhaps as part of an 
earlier tomb. . . 

A. similar ritual area lira 
where foe p assage enters the 
tomb chamber: the sfil across 
the floor of foe passage was , 
foand only at beginning of 
August, together with another 
chevron-decorated capstone. 

Professor Eogan believes ! 
that the ■ entire • decorative 
scheme at. Knowth is coherent | 
and planned, with “answering 
stones'* bearing decoration 
feeing each other across the i 
chamber, or in foe same 1 
relative location at the en- 
trance to the three-side cham- i 
ben which flank foe main 
tomb. 

“We most try to look at the i 
context of the art, and not jnst 
the great quantity which b 
present hoe”, he saitL “We ■ 
have slot of factual mate rial, 
and foe question is whether we 
can Interpret it in any 
meaningful way". -

MR IAN CURREY 

Mr ton Colborne Coney, freedom for Huntingdonshire, 
to died recently aged 75, was When comprchensivisation 


who died recently aged 75, was 
Chief Education Officer for 
Huntingdonshire through a 
crucial period in English edu- 
cation. and his approach to 
the introduction of compre- 
hensive schools was widely 
admired. 

He was born in Johannes- 

inSoufo Africa^ind Jamaica^ 
went to Kingswood School, 
Bath, .and Oirist's College, 

: Cambridge, where he read 
Classics. 

Following a period in foe 
Education Department of the 
- London County Councfl and 
war service with Field Securi- 
ty (from which he was 
invalided out), he became 
Director of Education for 
Huntingdonshire in 1944. His 
first ■ task was one of 
reorganisation, . much 
overdue. 

As one of the youngest 
education officers in the coun- 
try he faced a formidable task 
in implementing foe 1944 Act, 
and produced a workable 
system well-adapted to a rural 
area. 

But successive Boundary 
Commissions first united 
Hunts with Peterborough 
(Soke and City) and then 
joined both with Cambridge- 
shire and foe Isle of Ely. Wjfo 
all these changes. Cuney man- 
aged to- retain some local 


became inevitable, he deter- 
mined that Huntingdon 
School should be comprehen- 
sive in the widest sense. 
Against heavy odds be secured 
Hrachingbrooke House,' his- 
toric home of .the Earls of 
Sandwich, for this purpose. It 
stands now as his memorial, 
the most beautiful compre- 
hensive school in England. 

As an educationist Cuney 
was very much his own man, 
unswayed by popular crazes 
and political pressures, and 
impervious to cant. He collab- 
orated- rcadtiy with all men of 
goodwilL Good human rela- 
tions mattered to him . 

As a young man be bad 
enjoyed travel in Germany, 
and soon after the war. before 
“twinning” came into vogue, 
he built up friendly contacts 
between Huntingdon and 
Marburg. The German gov- 
ernment recognized this, with 
the award to him of its Older 
of Merit 

Cuney enjoyed travel and 
encouraged school trips 
abroad. He was delighted 
when foe Cambridge Univer- 
sity Examinations Board 
asked him to report on the - 
examination systems in Mala- 
wi and Zambia. 

In 1940 he married Jean 
McAIpine, who, with their two 
children, survives him.

equality 

Watching those dewlapped 
Many men Me! Smith and 
Griff Rhys Jones, one may fall 
■ about laughing only to rise 
Wl *h the sense one has been 
pushed. The punch packed by 
AUa Smith and Jones (BBC2) 
depends on a mixture of smut, 
halitosis, rampant bad taste 
and the facial expressions of 
an electrified donkey. Not for 
the programme's 22 script- 
writers that subtle domestic 
interplay between a More- 
cambe and a Wise, a Corbett 
and a Barker. 

WTiaf prevents these two 
from a genuine comic relation- 
ship is the knowledge that 
they are ever so superior to the 
characters they sketch. Both 
^play parts which involve cross- 
ing a mongoioid throwback 
with a know-all — a hybrid in 
vigorous need of a mate if it is 
to survive another series. 

The funniest sequence in- 
volved the pair of them 
presenting a new hi-fi system 
to their salesmen and trying to 
explain the proliferation of 
buttons. Asked what a graphic 
equalizer actually did. Mel 
Smith gave the glorious im- 
provisation that in the event of 
1 the graphics falling behind at 
any time it would enable them 
to catch up and be equal. 

This obfuscating jargon was 
■ the target of Michael Black- 
stnd's timely programme 
What They Don’t Tell You 
When They Sell Yon a Com- 
puter (Channel 4), which must 
have been appreciated by any- 
one who has had to wade 
through a word-processor 
manual. Apart from verbal 
shorthand, the use of ex- 
pressions like flip-flop toggle 
switches, bit-mapped wimps 
and bundled mouse controllers 
is to help computer salesmen 
identify suckers who do not 
have a clue what they are on 
. about. Having locked the 

* small businessman (amusingly 
played by Stephen Fry) into 
the system he first thought of, 
these men — who invariably 
have the blue faces of meat 
which has hung too long — are 
then likely to abandon him. 
The salesmen in this lucrative 
industry — “1 believe it's 
peopled generally by cow- 
boys", said one expert — will 
support you. but, once they 
have your cheque, only to the 
door. 

The second half dropped off 
a bit and Blackstad missed an 
opportunity to get some amus- 
ing mileage out of a high-street 
salesman. But there were tren- 
chant contributions from Ed- 
die Shah — whose own 
computer was plugged into die 

• air-conditioning units with 
devastating effect — and a man 
who had turned his £400,000 
computer into a cocktail cabi- 
net because four years on. such 
being the pace of change, it 
was only n orth £50.

Fresh out of gaol after 2.842 days, a 
former cop called Hawk (Kris 
K.risioffcrson) returns to Rain City in 
search of a woman and a job. With a 
marvellous economy, the images 
almost as monosyllabic as the words, 
Alan Rudolph's sparkling new, smok- 
ily familiar, film Trouble in Mind 
begins like a Runyonesque version of 
a Jim Thompson novel, peopled with 
such names as Coop. Solo, Nate and 
Spike. 

One look at the former cop. gaunt 
and angular of hat beard and body, 
and we can guess at least the first 
meaning of Rudolph's title. It ought, 
of course, to be a story about the blues 
— and so it is. in mood and colour. 
But Rudolph's blues, evolved 
through seven films in as many years, 
cover a wide spectrum; their musical 
equivalent is as much in Marianne 
Faithfull's parched agony as in 
Jimmy Witherspoon's plaintive resil- 
ience. and the film's soundtrack 
obligingly gives us both. 

Rain City, compiled mostly from 
Seattle, is on the borders of an absurd 
future and a derelict past, its at- 
mosphere heavy with emergency- 
Soldiers parade the streets recruiting 
for imminent conll let, while protes- 
tors at some unknown crisis are 
violently dispersed. At first Just odd. 
slightly off-key. the hints of a par- 
odied alternate universe gradually 
become dominant, unsettlingly fash- 
ioned from punk. Fifties rock, and 
Forties noir. 

Adrift in this milieu. Hawk uses 
what vestigial influence he can to 
rescue a young innocent (Lori Singer) 
and to knock some sense into her 
hoodlum partner (Keith Carradine) 
who pursues a career of escalating 
crime in increasingly bizarre make- 
up. The troubles build to an orgy of 
slapstick slaughter in the mansion of 
underworld boss Hilly Blue (played 
straight, with evident delight, by the 
female impersonator Divine), after 
which Hawk has nowhere to go but 
the sunset 

Complete with hard-boiled one- 
lincrs that could have been lifted 
from Kristofferson ballads or spoken 
by Wayne or Bogart or Claire Trevor 
("Gotta be nice to your friends — 
without 'em you’re a perfect 
stranger"), and delivered with light 
mockery by a cast you can take 
seriously or not. it is fun: either way. 
Trouble in Mind makes easy 
listening. 

There is also more than a touch of 



At borne in Rain City: Kris Kristofferson and Lori Singer in Trouble in Mind 


the fantasy thriller about Captive, 
which represents the debut as director 
of the film critic Paul Mayersbeig. It 
is a kind of fairy-tale derived from the 
Patty Hearst story: the daughter 
(Irina Brook) of a multi-millionaire 
(Oliver Reed) is kidnapped by a trio 
of young idealists — a princess 
rescued from an ivory tower — and 
brainwashed into sharing their con- 
tempt for a life of luxury. She is 
pensuaded to discard all previous 
guilts and allegiances (the darling of 
her father, she is convinced she 
caused her mother's death), and 
becomes a gunslinging member of the 
gang until the police eventually catch 
up with them. 

As with his script for Eureka which, 
after telling one story, calmly em- 
barked on another. Mayersbeig then 
proceeds to explore his heroine's 
rehabilitation. A princess awakened 
(she has even pricked herself on a rose 
at one point), she begins to recognize 
that she has been everybody's prop- 
erty but her own and, tired of playing 
Madam Butterfly, reaches towards 
the dawn of i ndependence. 

This process of enlightenment can 
in retrospect be seen as the purpose of 
Mayersbeig’s other screenplays; both 
Eureka and Man Who Fell to Earth 
dealt similarly with the irrelevance of 
incalculable wealth except as a con- 
text for liberation. And Mayersbeig 
directs with enough elegance to 
transcend the slight clumsiness of his 
attractive but inexperienced young 
cast (by contrast. Oliver Reed's 
restrained performance is a welcome 
strength). The film is a challenge, but 
a rewarding one. 

The theme of paternal tyranny 
reappears, in the guise of Trevor 
Howard, in this week's third un- 


conventional movie, Dost adapted 
by the Belgian actress Marion Hansel 
from J.M. Coetzee’s novel In the 
Heart of the Country. Living on a 
remote South African farm, lather 
uses daughter (Jane Birkin) like a 
menial and fails to notice the unstable 
consequences of his neglect until she 
reaches fbr a shotgun. Coetzee's text, 
a mesmerizing combination of Defoe 
and Malzberg. is like an apocalyptic 
testament, every paragraph num- 
bered. Instead of quoli ng it wholesale, 
which must have been a temptation. 
Hansel does an admirable job of 
converting words to images, the 
rough farm landscape serving as both 
stimulus and mirror to the girl's 
growing derangement. 

The result, perhaps inevitably, is a 
little arid, a forced parable with 
feminist sympathies, eager to imply 
more than it can show. But Jane 
Birkin's despairing fury has an 
impressive intensity, while Trevor 
Howard, mostly required just to 
grant conveys an infinite cruelty 
with the glitter of an eye. ir the magic 
of Coetzee's vocabulary is largely 
missing, the predicament of- his 
heroine, a less-than-resourceful Cru- 
soe, remains under Hansel's direction 
a compelling enough journey to the 
interior. 

Back in the city, things continue to 
be not quite what they seem in Robert 
Mandel's F/X - Minder by Illusion, a 
far-fetched but highly enjoyable yarn 
aboutra special-effects expert (Bryan 
Brown) hired to stage an assassina- 
tion for the New York police. As soon 
as he has peppered his victim with 
convincing squibs he becomes a 
hunted man. discovering to his 
horror that the bloodshed is real. 
Cheerfully stealing ideas from a 


cavalcade of crime dramas like Point 
Blank and The Gauntlet, the film 
submits us to a spectacular car-chase 
before die special effects really come 
into their own with the final holo- 
caust I suspect that it will be 
remembered more fbr Brian Den- 
nehy, an actor of massive and genial 
authority (here playing die world- 
weary cop) than for the compar- 
atively lightweight Bryan Brown. 

Considerably less memorable are 
the remaining releases in a crowded 
week. The problem with Poltergeist 
II: The Other Side is the complicated 
plot that has to justify a fresh assault 
on the luckless Freeling family four 
years after Poltergeist /. Rather 
sensibly they have left the neigh- 
bourhood and do not watch tele- 
vision any more, but the spirit world 
in the form of Julian Beck as a 
doorstep evangelist is still waiting to 
pounce. Clouds of wraiths and ecto- 
plasm get busy from the opening 
sequences, splendidly compiled by 
Richard Edlund {Ghostbusters) and 
H.R. Giger (Alien), and there are at 
least two major nightmares. But the 
director Brian Gibson does give the 
unavoidable impression of being in 
the thick of fortes he is powerless to 
control.

* The gains of growing professionalism 


Michael Clark 
Sadler’s Wells 


M> giwdnesv Michael Clark 
is gcinng respectable in his old 
agef Now all of 24. his first 
season at Sadler's Wells co- 
incides with the announce- 
ment of a Michael Clark 
Foundation intended to help 
talented young dancers and to 
provide much-needed re- 
hearsal studios for indepen- 
dent dance companies. 

It would he unfair to ascribe 
this to a new-found serious- 
ness. since he has always been 
> entirely purposeful about his 
work. However his latest cre- 
ation does find Clark showing 
a lot more respect towards his 
talent than he did a year ago. 

In some ways V«» Tire 
/. w <//',■ m l u/l is a develop- 


ment of the boldly theatrical 
style he was then playing with, 
but he has ruthlessly cut out 
the less successful elements; 
the amateurish singing and 
most of the talking. There is 
still a good deal of the 
outrageousness which has 
proved a canny selling-point 
for his shows. But he gels this 
aspect over in the fust of the 
three short acts, which also 
provides quite a few jokes 
about policemen. 

The middle act is largely 
given over to a lament for 
dead singers. John Lennon. 
Mama Cass. Judy Garland (I 
think) and others, performed 
to a collage by Jeffrey Hinton, 
during which the action often 
illustrates comically the quo- 
ted songs, although 1 am not 
quite sure what the dancers 
dressed as a fish and a lawn 


were supposed to be doing. 

These two acts have some 
rock music specially written 
by Simon Rogers and Bruce 
Gilbert, and two numbers 
recorded by the group The 
Fall, to whose domineering 
songs Clark has been consis- 
tently faithful. He uses these 
rock' rhythms, however, as 
dancers in class use the musi- 
cal accompaniment, entirely 
for their strong beat 

In the final act. an even 
more powerful accompani- 
ment. high in decibels, is 
provided live on stage by 
Laibach, a group from Yugo- 
slavia. whose chanting in 
Latin and German provides 
the basis for a ceremony set in 
a vividly imagined hell, full of 
creatures with extra limbs who 
become, if anything, even 
more alarming when they 


revert to normal human form. 

Clark's interest in dance for 
its own sake, dear in his 
earliest works and underlying 
even the silliness and excess of 
some interim pieces, runs 
strongly through this new 
production, growing richer 
and more inventive at each 
stage of the action. His basis, 
as always, is in the virtuoso 
possibilities of classical ballet, 
but used with complete free- 
dom and individuality. 

In spite of losing two of his 
past stalwarts. Clark has man- 
aged to double the size of his 
company with no loss of 
quality. He. mercurial as ever, 
and the earnestly impassioned 
and continually developing 
Ellen van Schuylenburch, set 
standards for the others to 
emulate.

ing rubbish and finally get 
thrown on the scrap-heap as 
rubbish themselves. 

The play presents this mes- 
sage in simultaneous action on 
a divided stage (by John 
McMurrny): on one side, a 
cottage with three girls stitch- 
ing acorns and periwinkles 
into a trousseau for the 
squire's daughter: on the 
other, a sweat-shop with a 
group of multi-ethnic ladies 
machining away at the behest 
of a permanently frantic 
proprietor. 

Scenes are brief, and loaded 
with echoes and parallels — 
not least the foci that each 
group contains one lagging 
member marked down as a 
sacrificial victim. Among the 
lace- makers it is Alice who is 
losing her sight: in the sweat- 
shop it is old LiL once a 
favourite of the boss's father, 
but now unable to keep up the 
pace. The drawback of this 
scheme is that, while stitching 
and dialogue are easily com- 
bined. it is hard for actresses 
to make themselves heard 
above the din of three electric 
sewing machines; with the 
result that work in the sweat- 
shop is always grinding to a 
halt. 

I suspect that it is in 


overcoming this obstacle that 
Miss Gcc has developed a plot 
and character that unbalances 
the play. Work stops because 
of Lil. who will do anything to 
delay the moment of truth 
with her machine. She then 
goes on to secrete her botched 
work in the pile of a super- 
efficient West Indian col- 
league — thus provoking a 
tremendous fight when her 
treachery is discovered. 

After building up such an 
enmity. Miss Gee abruptly 
cancel's it when Lil is down- 
graded to non-skilled work 
which involves turning her 
enemy. Cariie. into a sympa- 
thetic ally. For all Brenda 
Bruce's desperate ferocity as 
LiL the more she takes over 
central position the less in- 
teresting she becomes. 

It is also a pity that she 
overshadows the quite beauti- 
fully written scenes of the 
three lacc-makcrs. f shall

I had intended to devote a 
large part of this notice to 
Marius Constant’s symphonic 
synopsis of Debussy's Pc! leas 
ih Melisande. which was being 
played For the first time in this 
country, and which was cer- 
tainly not without interest. 
However, there are more ur- 
gent matters at hand, evoked 
by a performance of Beet- 
hoven's Choral Symphony so 
utterly candid it was a 
benediction. 

Wc live in a time when the 
experience of Beethoven, and 
perhaps most particularly of 
Beethoven. * seems to be 
increasingly ironized. the mu- 
sic removed from us by rou- 
tine playing or routine listen- 
ing. by the rhetoric of 
personality and showman- 
ship. or by performances using 
period style to place works 
within cute historical quotes. 
Some of these things are 
inevitable, some no doubt 
necessary, but what is most 
necessary of aiL for the 
humanity of any future musi- 
cal culture, is that Beethoven 
should continue sometimes to 
be felt and understood di- 
rectly. This was one of those 
rare occasions when the spark 
struck.

Simon Rattle achieved this 


Lionel Rogg/ 
LMP/Glover 
Festival Hall 


One Festival Hall tradition 
which has survived un- 
changed through all the 
innovations of the LCC. the 
GLC and the South Bank 
Board is the weekly organ 
recital- Wednesdays at 5.5S. 
They tried. 5.45 a few years 
ago. but the organ buffs soon 
put a stop to that sort of 
radical nonsense. This sea- 
son's series is called “The 
King of Instruments*': luckily 
the programmes are a bit more 
imaginative than the title. 

This opening redial by the 
Swiss organist Lionel Rogg 
ranged from the French ba- 
roque mannerisms of Louis 
Marchand lo the heroic fist- 
fills of Reger's Fantasia on 
“Halleluja! Gott zu toben”. 
Rogg's own Two Studies (en- 
titled “Le Canon improbable” 
and “Les Telrachordes insis- 
tants”) offered just the right 
sort of witty antidote to the 
stormier fore, and his trans- 
cription of Liszt's Saint-Fran- 
cois de Panic M archant sur fes 
(lots had a suitably lurid, 
WuriiLzer-Jike quality. 

But what has happened to 
his once unmatchable Bach? 
That most tragic of chorale 
preludes, “O Mensch. bewein 
dcin Snde gross”, was given a 
swift and heartless execution, 
its heavily chromatic har- 
monies swept mechanically 
into neat little . rubatos. 

Later in the evening the 
London Mozart Players open- 
ed their season which, under 
Jane Glover’s supervision, 
also shows welcome expan- 
sionist tendencies. Here, for 
instance. Robert Saxton's 
1983 orchestral work The 
Ring of Eternity slipped in 
quite comfortably (to my ears 
anyway) amid the Haydn and 
Mozart. Saxton's evocation of 
Henry Vaughan's poetry did 
not quite sparkle as one 
remembered; some woodwind 
detail seemed too recessed 
here, and there was little sense 
of an inexorable culmination. 
But the playing was as highly 
competent as in the classical 
offerings. In Mozart's Piano 
Concerto in C. K.467. Rafael 
Orozco was a solid soloist.

immediacy, this sense of the 
music " speaking For itself 
searching and finding its own 
tempo (even through some 
extreme ralleniandos). its own 
phrasing, even its own colour- 
ing from the strings. No doubt 
the secret lies somewhat in the 
shared sensibility of conduc- 
tor and orchestra, their work- 
ing so closely in harness (and 
how well Rattle's stay-put 
policy justifies itself). But the 
triumph is also a personal one. 
dependent on Rattle's ability 
to be desperately and person- 
ally involved, and yet to be so 
on behalf of something much 
larger than himself. 

What we heard was not an 
“interpretation” of the work: 
it was for too simple for that — 
too open, even too obvious - 
if at the same time constantly 
and joyously surprising. 
“Interpretation” would imply 
a secondary experience, 
whereas this had the flat 
authority of something pri- 
mary: and as proof I can only 
record the thrill of the entry of 
the baritone soloist, a role 
marvellously held by Willard 
White, or the exhilaration of a 
perfect coordination between 
instrumental and vocal 
rhythms in the choral epi- 
sodes. or again the absolute 
unimportance of some slips 
among the wind in the slow 
movement. 

The music, the continuing 
comprehension of this music, 
was all that was important.

It was three of Goethe's

Ameling and her accompanist 
Rudolf Jansen. For Schubert's 
Grelchen at the. spinning- 
wheel. Ameling gasped in 
breathless grief and recoiled 
from the imagined kiss's sting 
just at the point where strain 
was bcgjning to tcIL 

For Kiarchen, there was 
Liszt's overblown “Freudvofl 
und leidvoll" and Wolfs coy 
“Die Sprode”, both leased 
nicely into submission. And 
for Mignon. a most careful 
selection of moods and re-

(and. as an encore. Tchai-

Wolfs “Ken n si du das Land",

Ministers fear 
Heseltine view 
on inner cities 

By Martm Fletcher, Political Reporter 


The Government has inter- 
vened ■ to prevent the 
embarrassing spectacle of Mr 
Michael Hesdtuie, former 
Secretary of State for Defence 
and the Environment, patting 
the Conservative case for the 
inner cities at a top-level 
international conference in 
London to be addressed by the 
Prince of Wales. 

Prince Grades is expected 
to use the conference,** Build- 
ing Communities’), lo launch 
a big new initiative on this 
highly-sensitive political is- 
sue. He will be supported by 
his architectural adviser. Dr 
Rod Hackney, who caused 
controversy by quoting the 
Prince as saying that he did 
not want to be King in an 
atmosphere where there were 
no-go areas in cities. 

Chairing the conferenre, to 
be held in November, will be 
Lord Scarmao, author of the 
damning inquiry into the 
Brixton riots in 1981. 

Among the conference 
backers is the Archbishop of 
Canterbury's commission 
which produced the Faith in 
the City report, denounced by 
one minister as “mardst”. 

Addressing the conference 
for the Alliance will be Mrs 
Shirley Williams, SDP presi- 
dent, and Labour’s environ- 
ment spokesman. Dr John 

Cu nningham. 

No minister was asked. 
Instead, the organizers invited 
Mr Heseltine who, since his 
resignation during the West- 
land affair, has been 


Princess sees jail life 


Princess Anne yesterday 
saw what life is like for 1,01S 
prisoners at the 141-year-old 
Win son Green Prison in Bir- 
mingham, which was designed 
to take S70 inmates. 

As the Royal visitor in- 
spected prison warders, re- 
mand prisoners crowded to 
cell windows and yelled cat- 
calls and obscenities — while 
one inmate sang Rule Britan- 
nia. 

Later she spent five minutes 
with one of the prisoners in his 
tiny cell, talking to him while

propounding an alternative 
Toryism based largely on the 
regeneration of inner cities. . 

Mr Heseltine, who took foe 
problems of Liverpool . to 
heart while at the Department 
of Environment, is expected 
to use the conference for a 
major policy speech. 

The conference organizers, 
Community Architecture 
Information Services, said: “ 
We believe that he was one of 
the most effective secretaries 
of state for the environment. 
He took a particular interest in 
the inner cities and we thought 
he was the best speaker from 
the Conservative Party to 
contribute to the debate.” 

Senior civil servants at foe 
Department of the Environ- 
ment are very concerned at 
the likely tone of such a 
conference and the lack of 
government representation. 

This week an official of the 
department's inner cities 
directorate, Mr Andrew Lean, 
telephoned the organizers and 
let it be known that Mr 
Nicholas Ridley, Secretary of 
State for the Environment, or 
Mr John Patten, his housing 
minister, would be vailing to 
address the conference if 
invited. 

The organizers dispatched 
an invitation to Mr Ridley to 
respond to the other speakers. 
“We are happy to accomodate 
the Government's wishes 
since they obviously fed they 
have a point to put which may 
or may not coincide with what 
Michael Heseltine might say.”

Summit 
optimism 
by Soviet 
minister 

ConUaned from page 1 
Daniioff affair , but was made 
because die Russians had not 
complied with its request fora 
phased reduction of the 
mission's staff from 275 to 
170. The' US maintains foal 
many of the Soviet personnel 
are not tfiplomrts but spies. 

There was official concern 
here yesterday that both rides 
may have locked themselves 
into a mounting confrontation 
over the arrests ofMr Daniioff 
and Mr Gennady Zakharov, 
the Soviet UN employee. 

There has been stxong and 
widespread criticism of the 
Administration for its han- 
dling of the a f fai r, and Mr 
Shultz has been obliged to 
y o ng fren his warnings to Mos- 
cow. over the consequences. 

The Shevaidnadze-Shultz 
talks were. intended to see 
whether there was enough 
common ground on arms 
control ana other US-Soviet 
issues to justify a summit and 
posribty set a date . 

They come one day after the 

opening of the latest round of 
arms control talks in Geneva, 
where there have recently 
been hopes that concessions 
on both had moved foe nego- 
tiations forward, and that a 
framework agreement, similar 
to 'the Vladivostok Agreement 
of 1974, could be signed at a 
summit. 

The Adfomi u r at i on has 
tried to prevent the Daniioff 
crisis affecting foe arms talks, 
though President Reagan gave 
a public warning on Wednes- 
day that the Soviet treatment 
of Mr Danitoff “continues to 
limit severely what is achiev 
able in our bilatcral.relations.

ICI plans heavy 
job cuts in 
reorganization 


Job losses running into the 
thousands are planned at Im- 
perial Chemical Industries, 
Britain's largest manufac- 
turing company, as pan of a 
m^jor cost-cutting reorganiza- 
tion of its mainstream chemi- 
cal businesses announced 
yesterday. 

The four divisions of agri- 
culture, fibres, petrochemicals 
and plastics, and the Mond 
general chemicals business; 
are to be merged to create a 
more efficient European-wide 
group, ICI Chemicals and 
Polymers, with sales of about 
£3.5 billion . 

The restructuring, which 
brings together into one di- 
vision ICI’s traditional bulk 
commodity chemicals activ- 
ities, should produce cost 
savings of many millions of 
pounds. 

The company said it was’ 
too early to put a number on 
job losses, but that the cuts 
would fall mainly on white- 
collar administrative workers 
and. overtime, would move 
into four figures. 

ICI shares gained 35p to 
J099p. . 


By Teresa Poole 

The chairman-elect, Mr De- 
nys Henderson, said: “I hope 
and believe that the employ- 
ees will see this as pretty 
encouraging because it is pan 
of ICTs commitment to stay- 
ing in the commodity chemi- 
cals business.” ICI hopes to 
reduce staff levels through 
voluntary redundancies. 

Over the past five years ICI 
has reduced its dependency on 
bulk chemicals and built up its 
more profitable international 
specialist chemicals activities, 
including pharmaceuticals, 
paints and advanced 
materials. 

The new division will be- 
come a wholly-owned ICI 
subsidiary by the end of next 
year, but the company said 
there were no plans at present 
to reduce its holding. 

However, there is specula- 
tion in the City at that the 
restructuring is organized in a 
way which would facilitate a 
sale or flotation of the busi- 
ness at a later date. 

The chairman. Sir John 
Harvey-Jones, said: “We be- 
lieve that we can produce a 
taster moving business which 


is capable of standing on its 
own feet in the future. We 
know Lhai the businesses are 
ones we want to stay in.” 

Both fertilizers and fibres 
will keep their separate identi- 
ties under their own managing 
directors. 

The rest of the activities will 
make up nine business groups: 
petrochemicals, chemical 
products, general chemicals, 
chlorine and derivitives, plas- 
tics. resins and surface 
coalings intermediates, acryl- 
ics. catalysts and technology 
licensing, and mineral prod- 
ucts. 

Headquarters for the new 
board will be at Runcorn, 
Cheshire with north eastern 
regional and research activ- 
ities on Teesside. The chief 
executive will be Mr Dick 
Lindsell. at present chairman 
of the Mond division. 

The businesses at present 
employ 38,000 and. at £1.25 
billion account for nearly two- 
ihirds of ICIs assets in Europe. 
Last year they made operating 
profits of more than £200 
million. 


Pound plunges 
against mark 

By David Smith, Economics Correspondent 


The pound continued its 
downward spiral yesterday, 
tumbling to new lows against 
the mark and on the sterling 
index. 

As a result, money market 
interest rates increased by a 
quarter of a point and more, 
and gilt-edged securities 
dropped by almost two points. 

The storting index closed at 
69.4, compared with 70.3 on 
Wednesday nigfaL During the 
day, the index fell as low as 
69.2. 

After tailing below DM3 for 
the first time on Wednesday, 
sterling dropped a further six 
pfennigs to DM2.9298 
yesterday. 

The mark was generally 
strong, buoyed by repealed 


German assertions that there 
will be no early cut in official 
interest rates by the 
Bundesbank. 

. The dollar was pushed be- 
low the DM2 level for the first 
time since January 1981, clos- 
ing nearly four pfennigs down 
at DM1.9905. The dollar also 
fell from 154.75 to 153.55 
against the yen. 

But the pound lost ground 
even against the weak dollar, 
tailing by 40 points to $1.47 1 5. 

Dealers said there was no 
evidence,-other than normal 
smoothing operations, of 
Bank of England intervention 
yesterday. The authorities ap- 
pear to be hoping that this is a 
storm whit* will blow itself 
out naturally.

US growth 
remains 
sluggish 

From Mohsin Afi 
Washington 

The US economy grew at a 
sluggish 0.6 per cent between 
Apnl and June this year, the 
Commerce Department an-' 
nounced yesterday. 

The increase was the same 
as estimated a month ago and 
much weaker than the 5.8 per 
cent increase in gross national 
product recorded in the first 
three months of the y ear. 

A White House spokesman, 
however, said that he expected 
the US economy to perform 
solidly in the second half. 

The Commerce Depart- 
ment also reported that cor- 
porate profits were lower than 
originally forecast between 
April and June. Instead of a 
4.1 per cent increase after 
taxes, corporations earned 
only 2.1 per cent or $2.8 
billion (£1.89 billion) more 
than during the first quarter. 

The department pointed 
out that US exports fell during 
the second quarter as atten- 
tion continued to focus on a 
US shortfall in international 
trade. 

Exports of goods and ser- 
vices dropped $28 billion 
between April and June. 

Final real GNP during the 
second quarter was $3,660 
billion, an increase of $5.5 
billion or 0.6 per cent more 
than during the first quarter.

Taking Courage: Mr John Elliott of Elders yesterday (Photograph: Harry Kerr). 

Elders IXL pays £1.4bn 
for Courage brewery 


Elders IXL, the Australian 
food and drinks grasp beaded 
by Mr John Elliott, made its 
long-awaited move into the 
British brewing industry yes- 
terday by paying £1.4 bcUnm 
in cash to Hanson Trust for 
the Courage chain of brew- 
eries, drinks businesses and 
5,000 public houses. 

The acquisition, predicted in 
The Tima yesterday and 
signed at 9pm last night, 
ended speculation that Elders 
mi gh t launch a fresh contested 
bid for the AUied-Lyoas 
conglomerate after receiving 
permission to do so from the 
Monopolies aad Mergers 
Commission ftk month. 

The Courage deal wiD also 
need MMC approval, but Mr 
Elliott was confident there 
would be no problems. 

Asked about his decision to 
plump for Courage, Mr Elliott 
said it appeared to provide 
better vahre than Allied, which 
has a market value of £22 
billion, after falling 17p to 
3l6p yesterday. - 

He added: "There is also the 
tact that we could get on and 
buy it directly rather than go 
through another elongated bid 
process.” 

Despite not having to battle 
for the hearts of shareholders. 


By Richard Lander 
Elders, which was introduced 
to Hanson through the stock- 
brokers, Hoare Govett, still 
found itself fighting a number 
of suitors for Courage. 

These included Mr Alan 
Bond, another Australian with 
substantial brewing interests, 
Anheuser-Busch of [he United 
States and Scottish & New- 
castle Breweries. 

Elders, best known in Brit- 
ain for its Foster's lager. Is 
now the eighth largest brewing 
company in the world. In 
taking over Courage it has 
acquired a company control- 
ling 9 per cent of the British 
market whose beers include 
Courage Directors and Best 
bitters and Hofineister, Harp 
and Kronenbonrg lagers. 

Mr Elliott said he intended 
to retain the existing Courage 
management, although the 
company would probably 
bring in its own finance direc- 
tor from Australia. “We will 
be able to add technology in 
lager and some new marketing 
ideas.” 

Mr Andrew Cummins, 
Elders’ group strategy direc- 
tor, said he wonld examine the 
financing of Courage's vast 
property portfolio and study 
the potential for joint-venture 
pubs with landlords already 


introduced in Australia. 

He said Courage's profits 
had show a significant 
improvement this year and 
predicted the £1.4 billion pur- 
chase price would amount to 
some 10 times the operating 
profits in 1986-87. Courage 
made pretax profits of £86.7 
million in 1984/85 on turnover 
of £784 million. 

City analysts described the 
deal as one that would find 
equal favour with the three 
parties involved — Elders, 
Allied and Hanson. A state- 
ment from Sir DerrickHoMen- 
Brown, chairman and chief 
executive of Allied, said the 
Courage deal "brings to an end 
a lengthy period of 
uncertainty.” 

For Hanson Trust, 
yesterday's sale recouped 
more than half the £2Ji billion 
it paid for Imperial. 

Lord Hanson said be orig- 
inally had no intention of 
selling Courage “but there has 
been such intense interest 
from a number of directions at 
prices so attractive now to 
Hanson Trust that we consid- 
ered an early acceptance to be 
in th best interests of 
Courage’s customers, employ- 
ees and suppliers.” . 


High Street sales boom continues 


High street sales are 
contmuining to rise to near 
record levels, with employ- 
ment prospects in retail trade 
improving, the Confederation 
of British Industry says. 

The CBI's distributive 
trades survey shows that all 
high streets in the country, not 
only those in areas of lower 
unemployment, have had a 
summer of higher sales. How- 
ever, those shops in off-high 


By David Young 

street locations and certain 
sectors of the wholesale trade 
have not had quite such a 
good summer. 

Mr John Salisse, chairman 
of the CBI survey team, said: 
“Retailers expect even larger 
increases in September than 
those predicted for August and 
since confirmed. 

“Clothing shops and food 
stores are the most buoyant, 
with 80 per cent expecting 


sales in September to be 
higher than a year ago. 

The CBI survey also shows 
that builders' merchants and 
do-it-yourself stores are the 
most optimistic about future 
growth, but farm machinery 
and office supply companies 
expect business to be lower 

The survey also shows that 
the motor trade has recovered 
from its slack period in the 
late spring and early summer. 


Pru pays 
$ 608 m for 
first US 
acquisition 

By Richard Thomson 

The Prudential Corpora- 
tion. yesterday announced its 
first move into the United 
States insurance market with 
the $608 million (£405 mil- 
lion) acquisition with Jackson 
National Life, a US life assur- 
ance company. 

The purchase is the largest 
in the Pro's history and makes 
the new subsidiary the largest 
of its extensive overseas 
operations. 

Mr Brian Mcdhursi. manag- 
ing director of the Pro's 
international division, said 
that the company had been 
looking for an acquisition in 
the United States for about 
five years but had found 
nothing appropriate until 
now. 

“JNL is a company with 
strong growth, good profitabil- 
ity. and an excellent manage- 
ment. It is big enough for us to 
take seriously and give us a 
real place in the US market, 
but it is not too big to fit easily 
into the Pro.” he said. He 
added that the Pro needed a 
significant presence in the 
United States insurance mar- 
ket which was the largest, 
fastest growing and most inno- 
vative in the world. 

The Pro has until now 
carried on no direct business 
in the United States, though it 
has reinsurance interest 
through its subsidiary M&G 
Reinsurance. The move is the 
latest in a programme of 
development and diversifica- 
tion at the Pru including 
changing the company's image 
and building up a chain of 
estate agencies as pan of a 
scheme to offer wider finan- 
cial services. 

JNL. which was founded in 
1961. has grown rapidly in life 
assurance but has no involve- 
ment in any areas of general 
insurance, which the Pro re- 
gards as being too risky in the 
United States. The company 
operates in 34 slates at 
present, with permission to 
trade in 45 over alLSofar this 
year total premium income is 
$400 million, compared with 
$540 miilion-for the whole of 
last year. Pretax earnings in 
1985 were $35.7 million. It 
has 11 regional offices but 
operates mainly through a 
network of 49.000 brokers. 

The purchase is being 
funded partly out of the Pro's 
recent £357 million rights 
issue and partly from borrow- 
ing. It is paying $51 for each 
JNL share with an option to 
buy further shares at the same 
price under special 
circumstances. 

The directors of JNL are 
recommending the deal to 
shareholders. The manage- 
ment will remain with the 
company, including its 
founder and chairman, Mr 
Tony Passant. 

The Pro’s other overseas 
interests include operations in 
Canada, Australia, Hong 
Kong and The Netherlands.

SE to cut options costs 


The Stock Exchange, gear- 
ing up for Big Bang mid fresh 
competition from the London 
International Financial Fu- 
tures Exchange, is to substan- 
tially reduce the costs of 
trading in options on the 
FTSE-100 share index from 
next Tuesday. 

The baric margin required 
by the London Options Gear- 
ing House (LOCH) for option 
sellers will be reduced from 
12.5 to 7.5 per cent of the 
underlying index value, plus 
or minus an amount which 
will vary according to the risk 
exposure of the option. The 
cuts in the margins, which are 
usually deposited as gilts, 
optioned stocks or treasury 


By Richard t antiw 
bills, have been made after a 
study by a big accounting 
firm. 

In addition, the LOCH'S 
clearing fees are to be abol- 
ished for a period of four 
months. These vary from 35p 
to 75p a contract according to 
the trader involved and win be 
re-introduced on a lower scale 
after the four month period. 

Exchange officials said the 
cost reductions have been 
made to maintain the rapid 
growth seen this year in the 
FTSE options market Vol- 
ume is expected to take quan- 
tum leaps after Big Bang on 
October 27 when there will 
many more market makers 


seeking to hedge their equity 
expos ures. 

The FTSE options had their 
busiest day ever last Friday 
when 7,538 contracts were 
traded 

However, it seems likely the 
move is also designed to head 
off competition from L1FFE 
which int roduc es its own op- 
tions on FTSE future s on 
September 30. A LIFFE 
spokesman said his 
exchange's dealing costs of 
20p a lot were cheaper than 
the stock market’s existing 
charges. On the subject of 
margins, he said the SE “had 
perhaps taken a very conser- 
vative approach which meant 
their margins were higher”. 


Trade Department hits hack 
at CBI over investor Bill 


The Government has 
launched a stinging attack on 
the Confederation of British 
Industry in response to its 
claims that the Financial Ser- 
vices Bill will increase the 
costs and reduce the inter- 
national competitiveness of 
industrial and commercial 
companies. 

A spokesman for the 
Department of Trade and 
Industry, which sponsors die 
Bill, said yesterday that Mr 
Michael Howard, Minister for 
Consumer and Corporate Af- 
fairs, was surprised at the 
CBI's claims, particularly as 
almost all the fears voiced by 
the CBI had already been 
recognized in draft amend- 
ments to the Bill which the 
CBI had seen. 

The ' spokesman also ac- 
cused the CBi of waking up 
late to the BfiL and seeking to 
obtain political mileage by 
callingXor amendments which 
had already been agreed by 
the Government. 


By Lawrence Lever 

"The BiD was published last 
December and this was not the 
first time the CBI had seen it,” 
he said. "Yet they took until 
tale July to contact os.” 

A- CBI spokesman denied 
any ulterior political motive, 
but conceded that it “was not 
as quick as it would have 
liked” in replying to the Bill 

The central tenet of the 
CBI's fears is that the Bill 
coald require companies to 
seek authorization for the 
activities of their corporate 
treasurers. 

This question b particularly 
important for companies as 
operating an investment busi- 
ness without authorization will 
he a criminal offence when the 
Bill becomes law. 

The DTI says the draft 
amendments already sent to 
the CBI make it dear that the 
corporate treasurer function 
will not require authoriza tion 
and that the Securities and 
Investments Board will, if 
there is any donbt, have the 


power to exempt a company 
from this requirement 
• The Government delivered a 
veiled threat to the Japanese 
authorities yesterday over the 
question of reciprocal access to 
foreign markets. Tuesday's 
annftimmnai t of a merger 
between the Stock Exchange 
and the International Secan- 
ties Regulatory Organisation 
(Isro) will automatically give 
46 Japanese banks and scarci- 
ties fins, members of Isro, 
access to the UK securities 
markets. 

A DTI spokesman said 
yesterday that although Mr 
Howard welcomed the Stock 
Exchange-Isro deal, •‘the 
question of reciprocity Is a 
separate matter.” 

He added that the Govern- 
ment wonld continue to mon- 
itor the opportunities available 
to British firms in important 
foreign markets and would 
invoke the reciprocity pro- 
visions of the Bill if necessary.

‘ From Bailey Morris,

- " A group of developing na-

There was speculation of a

headed by finance minister M

within the European Eco-

Indeed, the negotiations 
.bad all the .etenems of the

EEC in new move 
to liberalize steel 


Fresh moves to open the 
European . Economic 
Community's steel market to 
free competition 'hove been 
announced by the EEC 
Commission In Brussels.' 

From next January, the 
Commission wants to remove 
the production quotas, from a 
number of restricted products, 
effectively liberalizing, h 
substantial part of the market. 

The Commission wants its 
proposals to ' be .-adopted by 
industry ministers before the 
end of the year, possibly at 
their' next meeting or October 
20 . 

The quotas, which have 
restricted steel output for the 
past six yean, would still 
apply ip 45 per Cent of total 
EEC production, against 65 
per bent at present. -. 

- The quotas would be lifted 
on wire rods, merchant bars, 
galvanized sheets and some 
fight sections. Quotas on; 
coated sheets and reinforcing 
bars were fifted at the start of 
this year. 


From Oor Correspondent, Brussels 

most European steel makers 
earned considerable profits ui 
the first quarter of this yeat; 
because of the doUan-basol 
and oil-based fells in their 


In expectation of protests 
from sted producers, threat- 
ened wife genuine market 
forces for the first time in six 
years, the Commission sets 


out a detailed response to the 
industry’s arguments for more 
protection. . 

It rays feat fee European 
steel industry has now begun 
to recover from its “long 
ainess.” and has shed about 
31.2 minion tonnes in capac- 
ity cuts since 1980- including 
5.4 million tonnes in Britain. 

Britain accounted for a 
third or fee Community's 150 
000 joWosses in tbe steel, 
industry between 1981 and 
1984. - 

The Commission says feat 
fee maintenance of quotas, 
according to the Commission, 
has created growing obstacles 
to, sound management, . 

. It says that companies are 

unable to react to the demands 

of the market. Market forces 
would force reluctant produo- 
ersio rationalize still further.

Chemical industry opens its 
doors for a better image 


By David. Yomg, Energy Correspondent 


The British chemical in- 
dustry, the country’s hugest 
single export industry with 
overseas sales of £103 billion 
every year, will open its doors 
to the public this weekend m 
an effort to improve its imager 

Chemical plants throughout 
the country, which are op- 
erated by member companies 
of the Chemical Industries 
Association, will hold open- 
days. 

Local residents will be able 
to tour the plants, find out for 
themselves what processes are 
being used and talk to workers 
and management about their 
fears and concerns about liv- 
ing in dose proximity to a 
chemical-plant. 

The industry has found that 
many local people blame 
chemical plants for pollution 
which can be traced back to 
other sources. . 

■ Mr Martin Trowbridge, 
Director-General of the 
Chemical Industries Associ- 
ation, said; “We have to 
accept that people have reql 
fears about the chemical in- 
dustry and feat we should do. 
everything we can to captain 
what , wq are doing. . 


“Companies thus weekend 
wiB open fern doors, and we 
hope, put fee industry in 
perspective. 

"The companies taking part 
in fee open-day programme 
will show that we- have noth- 
ing to hide.. 

^There may be mahy pro- 
cesses which are hazardous, 
but that does not mean feat 
they are dangerous. We will 
show how everything that ran 
be done to make things in the 
industry safe are done. 

"We will also show what 
benefits chemical companies 
can bring to fee local environ- 
ment in terms of investment 
and jobs." 

• Mr Trowbridge launched 
fee idea of a national open- 
day for fee industry after 
discussing the matter with his 

Dutcbcbemical industry!* 

In-Holland. where there has 
been a traditionally active 
environmental lobby for sev- 
eral years, it w at found that 
such open-days attracted no 
adverse demonstrations. 

. -In Britain it is hoped thafv 
any organized protests about 
what is. going on inside a 


chemical plant would, be 
combatted by frankness and 
openness. 

. Mr Trowbridge said:. "We 
have even suggested that any 
local organization opposed to 
a chemical works in their area 
should be allowed facilities to 
put forward their point of 
view, lire only way we ran tell 
people about fee industry is to 
be totally open' wife them." 

The association has already 
found that worries about the 
industry vary from region to 
region- " 

In some areas there is 
concern feat local plants will 
not be expanding because of 
re-organization and that jobs 
and local revenue will be lost, 
whDe in other areas there is 
concern that planned expan- 
sion will harm the local 
environment. 

Many factories and plants 
taking part will lay on guided 
tours and demonstrations of 
safety measures tomorrow. 

And in many plants chem- 
ists and te dmiaans will be 
setting up experiments which 
will be demonstrated to local 
children. - i 


UK ‘must 
follow 
Sweden on 
jobless’ 

By David Smith 

Economics Correspondent 

The Charter for Jobs, the 
all-party pressure group on 
unemployment, yesterday 
called on the Government to 
follow Sweden's example and 
bring about foil employment. 

An economic report pub- 
fished yesterday by the Char^ 
ter, written by Mr Richard 
Jackman, says feat there are 
important lessons to be team 
from the Swedish expenence. 

Tbe report says;. Most 
industrialized countries nave 
suffered large mcreasra m 
unemployment in fee issw. 
Sweden has been one of fee 
most notable exceptions. , 

“If last week. Mrs Thatcher 
had taken fee trouble to skip 
over the border from 
Norway," the Charter for Jobs 
says, “she would have picked 
up some important tips for 
Employment Secretary, Lord 
Young, in h« search for real 
answers for Britain's 
unemployed." 

Sweden has kept its un- 
employment rate to about 3 
per cent, compared wife 12 
per cent in Britain, fee report 
says, because there has been 
large-scale government inter- 
vention in fee. labour market, 
extensive special employment 
schemes and a job-guarantee 
for fee long-term jobless 
which means that no person 
need remain out of work for 
over a year against their wifi. 

Sweden has experienced a 
big increase in fee size of fee 
labour force — mainly because 
of increased participation by 
women — and fiscal policy is 
constrained by fee openness 
of the economy. 

But, the report says, this has 
not prevented the im- 
plementation of successful 
employment policies, while 
private industry has done 
relatively well in Sweden — 
certainly compared, wife Brit- 
ain — despite a large public 
sector and high taxation. 

The Charter for Jobs is 
particularly impressed wife 
Sweden's achievement in 
offering a job-guarantee to the 
long-term unemployed. 

This is something feat fee 
Charter has been pushing for 
in Britain and which was 
adopted as a central recom- 
mendation by fee House of 
Commons' Select Committee 
on Employment 

The Charter is currently 
campaigning for legislative 
backing for this through a 
Private Member's Bill.

* ears of dearer money and a 
US banking crisis hit shares 


By Michael Clark and Carol Leonard 

The spectre of higher in-

the stock market yesterday 
and took some of the steam 
out of the latest rally in share 
prices. 

Another drab performance 
by the dollar and sterling on 
the foreign exchange markets 
against the all-powerful Ger- 
man mark has increased the 
pressure for dearer money.

• Dalgety, the food and 

agricultural group, could be 
the next company on the 
shopping list of die acquisitive 
HiUsdown Hol dings . It 
has been quietly building up a 
uear-5 per cent stake in 

the shares of which 
ended the day 3p to the 
gpod at 283p. HiUsdown 
firmed a couple of pence to 
305p. Mr Harry Solomon, the 
joint chairman of 
HiUsdown, refuses to com- 
ment. except to say: “We 
have shares in a number of 
companies.” 

Some analysis now believe 
that a rise of up to 1 per cent in 
bank base rates is on the cards. 
Mr Stephen Lewis, an econo- 
mist at Phillips & Drew, the 
broker, says: “1 don't suppose 
Mr Lawson will want to put 
them up ahead of the Tory 
Party conference, but if the 
pound continues to slide it 
will throw his anti-inflation 
policy right of course. He will 
delay it as long as he can, but I 
think he will eventually go for 
an initial 1 per cent rise.” 

Gilts responded to events 
on the foreign exchanges 
predictably. Losses at the 
longer end, at one stage. 


med the reports, although 
analysis in Loudon are taking 
Ihe view that there is no 
smoke without fire. 

The stories were being dis- 
counted on Wall Street where 
share prices opened steady in 
quiet trading. But .all this 
uncertainty was having an 
adverse effect on the London 
stock market where prices 
petered out after another firm 
start. 

The FT index of 30 shares 
opened 2.4 higher and had 
extended the lead to 10.4 at 3 
pm. But the possibility of 
another banking crisis in 
America and fears of dearer 
money look their toU It 
eventually closed only 4.4 up 
at 1,279.6. The broader-based 
FT-SE 100 also closed below 
its best, 3.8 up at 1,614.2, 
having been 13.5 higher 
earlier.

.The firm start to trading 
. enabled Goldman Sachs, the 
New York investment house, 
to unload part of the £330 
million Philip Hill Investment 
Trust portfolio which it 
bought from Mr Robert 
MaxwelTs BPOC. Dealers re- 
ported that the market had 
easily absorbed any spare 
stock that had come on offer, 
although the bulk of the 
portfolio bad been placed 
outside the market. Goldman 
Sachs may have taken a loss 
on some of the business with a 
number of -fired managers 
bidding below the asking 
price. 

The increase in the marie 
meant more good news for 
ICL, which earns 30 per cent of 
its profits in Germany. Its 
shares climbed '20p to l,084p.

MONEY MARKET 
AND GOLD 


The markets were decidedly 
Jittery at the end of the day, 
having seen the fid] in sterling 
accelerating, particularly 
against the mark. 

The Bank of England's 
defences are almost certain to 
be tested today, many traders 
believe. Hence sharply rising 
rates at the long end. The 
short end even advanced 
smartly towards the finish. ,

COMMENT Kenneth Fleet 


Gilt market foresees 
higher interest rates 


The dark shadow of higher interest 
rates hovered like a Zeppelin over 
London yesterday. The January ster- 
ling crisis, perhaps fooled by the cool 
September weather, has come four 
months early. 

The sterling index dropped through 
70 without a flutter or apparently any 
serious attempt by the Bank of 
England to stop iL It closed at 69.4, 
lower even than in February 1985 
when the pound was within a whisker 
of falling to one dollar. In the gilt- 
edged market, where falls extended to 
two points or more at the long end, the 
10 per cent yield barrier proved no 
barrier at aD. 

The market has had to adjust 
rapidly to a deteriorating interest 
outlook. Two weeks ago, there were 
still residual hopes of lower base rates 
before the end of the month. Two days 
ago, most people had become resigned 
to steady rates. Now, there are enough 
operators talking of higher base rates 
around to risk starting an avalanche. 

In the money markets the talk is ofa 
base rate rise before the end of the 
week. Three-month interbank rate 
rose by a quarter yesterday to just over 
10% per cent Longer rates hardened 
even more. 

At this juncture the pound's fall is 
mainly, but not entirely, a German 
mark story. Yesterday, as well as 
pushing the pound down to just below 
DM2.93 (the DM3 barrier is now just 
a memory) the powerful mark sent the 
dollar reeling below two marks. That 
the pound is stable, more or less, 
against the dollar, albeit a weak dollar, 
says something. Exchange rates are 
adjusting to the economic fun- 
damentals of very large German and 
Japanese current account surpluses. 
They are also adjusting in line with 
the relative benefits, to different 
countries, of lower oil prices. Here too 
Germany and Japan score as import- 
ers qf oil There is nothing fun- 
damentally wrong with that 

The difficulty , and the gilt-edged 
market has clearly picked this up, is 
that it is much easier for the US 
authorities to allow the dollar to slide 
than it is for Britain to permit a 
sterling free-falL 

The $4 billion floating rate note is 
sitting in the reserves ready to be used. 
The alternative, higher interest rates, 
is not a comforting prospect Higher 
interest rates would damage the 
Government, politically which, in 
turn, would fuel further sterling 
weakness. That is the sort of vicious 
circle that the Treasury and. Bank of 
England mustjcontnve to avpid. .. 

McMahon’s stamp 
on the Midland 

Sir “Kit” McMahon's wind of change 
is already blowing through the cor- 
ridors of Midland Bank. Change was 


badly needed after the blow to morale 
and the bank's apparent loss of 
direction after the Crocker downfall in 
California. Accordingly, just two 
weeks after taking over from Geoffrey 
Tayor as chief executive, the former 
deputy governor of the Bank of 
England and Midland's hope for the 
future unveiled a host of senior 
appointments. 

In March, Midland was reorganized 
into four sectors; retail, corporate, 
investment, and international. The 
directors of each of these divisions 
will report to John Brooks, who 
retains his position as deputy group 
chief executive. Mr Brooks, a senior 
figure in banking who was tipped at 
one point as a successor to Mr Taylor, 
in effect takes over responsibility for 
the day to day running of the bank. 

That leaves Sir Kit free from the 
hurly-burly and with time to take the 
long view — a luxury which is perhaps 
appropriate since he is still to move to 
the Olympian heights in April when 
he becomes chairman in succession to 
Sir Donald Barron. Midland did not 
distinguish itself for wisdom or fore- 
sight under the old regime; with 
banking markets changing rapidly, it 
needs both as never before. 

John Harris, who was sent out to 
deal with Crocker when the awful 
truth of Crocker first dawned over 
London, (he too was once lipped as a 
Taylor successor), takes over 
responsibility for central resource 
managemenL More revealing how- 
ever, than the fortunes of ex future 
chief executives are appointments in 
the retail and coporate banking 
divisions. 

Michael Fuller becomes UK opera- 
tions director on the retail side, but 
retains his responsibility for market- 
ing — a symbol of the importance 
Midland, like the other clearers, now 
attaches to the marketing of banking 
services. 

Taking over as corporate banking 
director is David Potter, a managing 
director of Samuel Montagu. It is rare 
for a merchant banker to break into 
the mainstream career structure of a 
clearing bank, but the appointment is 
also part of Midland's new emphasis 
on investment banking and 
securitization. 

Over all, the impression given by 
the new appointments is that, in 
Midland at least, the old-fashioned 
clearing bank career structure — when 
general managers were exactly that — 
is dead. Specialization is the older of 
the day.' 

Atthe.same time, the old-style plod 
from branch manager up through a 
predictable hierarchy is on the way 
out In the new McMahon era 
Midland’s able and ambitious man- 
agers can expea to move across the 
bank from one area to another as and 
when they are needed. 


RTZ 

Half year results 

Strong trading performances in the Group’s expanding range of industrial activities were more 
than offset by an exceptionally adverse combination of factors as foreshadowed by Sir Alistair Frame 
at the company’s annual general meeting on 21 May. There was the sharp drop in the price of oil, 
continued weakness in most metal prices, and a marked fall in the value of several relevant overseas 
currencies which reduced pre-tax profit on translation into sterling by £50 million and net attributable 
profit by £20 million. 

The Metals sector’s contribution to net attributable profit was £29 million (1985; £48 
million). Although metal prices were generally weak, most Group mines remained profitable. 
The decrease in aggregate contribution from this sector was mainly due to industrial action at Broken 
Hill, tower revenues from Hamersley, and increased 'losses at Rio Tinto Minera. The loss-making 
copper mining operations at Rio Tinto have been suspended. In the second half of the year, 
significant benefits are expected to flow to CRA following the depreciation of the Australian dollar and 
the resumption of work at Broken Hili now that improvements to working practices have been 
agreed. Both developments should materially improve CRA’s future competitive position. 

The Industrial sector performed well, its contribution to net attributable profit rising to 
£78 million (1985: £67 million) despite the slower than anticipated boost from lower energy prices 
and the effects of currency translation. RT7s recent investment activity has focused on this sector 
with a number of acquisitions, predominantly in the speciality chemicals and minerals area, at a cost 
of US$320 million. The industrial businesses should continue to progress in the second half. 

The Energy sector’s contribution to net attributable profit fell from £45 million to £19 million 
largely due to the drop of over 50 per cent in oil prices in sterling terms. Uranium deliveries were 
lower but are expected to catch up in the second half. 

Outlook 

In the world of fluctuating currencies and commodify prices in which RTZ operates, 
predictions of.future performance are necessarily uncertain. But in the short term, firm control 
of costs across our broadly based business and further growth in the industrial sector will assist our 
immediate prospects. In the longer term the continuation of the investment strategy we have been 
pursuing will ensure our growth. Prospects will be further enhanced as metal and oil prices improve.

Recovery continues 
at More O’Ferrkll 


■ The improvement in toe 
■fortunes of More O’Efenall, lbe 
outdoor advertising specialist 
is continuing with the com- 
pany yesterday announcing 
pretax profits of £2.05 million 
for the half year to June 30 
against £376,000 in the 
corresponding period last 
year. 

; The company made pretax 
profits of £2.4 million in the 
traditionally stonger second 
half of last year. 

Mr Russell Gore-Andrcws, 
More O’FkralTs chairman 
and group managing director, 
yesterday attributed the dra- 
matic improvement in the 
company’s fortunes oyer the 
past year to firming of its rams* 
for advertising rites and 
improvement in the market 
both for she advertising and 
the advertising industry in 
general. 

The company’s recent 
reorganization was also a ma-

the 


jot factor. This took the form 
of the restructuring ; of the 
company in 1984 with 3i 
buying out family, interests, 
and the company purchasing 
the remaining half of Adshel, 
which seds advertising space 
on bus shelters. Adshefl now 
advertises oa about 13,000 
bus shelters. 

More OTerralL .has also 
started a public relations com- 
pany which it hopes to operate

ship activities.'

P&O bows out of gas transport 

By Oar City staff 


The Peninsular and Ori- 
ental Steam Navigation Co 
and Overseas SniphokUng 
Group have readied agree- 
ment to sell their jointly- 
owned liquefied petroleum 
gas and chemical gas ocean 
transport business to 
Kvaemer Industrier of Oslo in 
association with other Norwe- 
gian interests. 

The price for the total 
business, comprising nine tpg 


carriers, is S74 million (£50 
million) plus working capital 
of about S6 million. 

The transaction is subject to 
the execution of definitive 
agreements. . 

Kvaeroer Industrier and its 
associates will maintain in 
London lbe existing commer- 
cial administrative' organiza- 
tion of P&O Gas Carriers. 

P&O collects some $40 
million for its share of the 


deal. It bad sold a half share to 
OSG a year ago for $35 
million, so yesterday's trans- 
action looks to have been 
carried out somewhat above 
book value. 

Sir JdRErey_ Sterling, chair- 
man, said:“This rakes us to- 
tally out of gas. This is a very 
volatile area . 

“ We will concentrate on 
what we are good at — moving 
people and and freight.”

most flexible business loan available on 
the market today. 

Namely, the Lloyds Bank Business 
Loan. With it you can borrow as little as

option when the term of your loan 
exceeds ten years. Interest is payable 
throughout the whole term, while capital 
is repaid with an endowment assurance 
•licy. It usually leads to a healthy cash 
nus at maturity. No other major bank 
offers this.

There’s a simple advantage attached to 
the fixed rare option. It allows you to 
budget precisely when forecasting your

Strong chemical 
reaction at RTZ 


Faced with a dismal energy 
sector and a none too spar- 
kling outlook for base merals, 
Rio Tinto-Zinc is pressing 
ahead apace with its strategy 
of sirengthening its industrial 

Chemicals m particular 
have been a strong growth 

area over the past year Md 


none points out that 1 7 out of 
30 original management 
teams are still in place- 
A static first hall had been 
flagged at Lapone's annual 
meeting in May and so 
yesterday’s results were not a 
surprise. New plants at Seal 
Sands and Widnes ha ve been 
commissioned and will make 
an impact in the second half 


the group WOO anunp^t! 

SkfSJ? eXw mSto for peroxygen 

atamj sss s 

MpwW&j* du £lSo C S? 1 h a d n £l l oSion in 

RTZ’s existing interests on 
both sides of the Atlantic: 

RTZ expects turnover in 
the chemicals division to 
double to £450 miltion be- 
tween 1985 to 1987 and is 
recognizing its importance by 
making it a separate division 
reporting straight to head 

office. 

The strength of -RTZ?s 
industrial and chemical com- 
panies shone through • the 
interim results, which 
showed pretax profits falling 
from £118.3 million to £82.8 
million, despite the ususal 
haze poised by RTZ’s numer- 
ous currency translations. 

RTZ Borax, now the larg- 
est silica sand supplier in the 
United States and the present 
home for the chemical firms, 
showed a 20 per cent rise in 
net profits, only to give it all 
up to the strong pound, while 
profits at Pillar, the. 

.aluminium products and en- 
gineering company grew 40 
per cent to £25 miOioo. 

For the second half Pillar 
should deliver even greater 
growth as the home improve- 
ment market gears up for 
winter, while the company 
also expects expansion in 
uranium deliveries from 
Rossing. which were 
pressed in toe first 
months. 

In the longer lenn, RTZ 
looks set to continue its new 
investments in chemicals and 
other industries and is still 
fully committed to the enfcrgy 
and mining sectors tkspite 


its balance sheet at the end of 
(985 and should have more 
by toe end of this year. It can 
choose to invest in existing 
operations or to continue to 
be acquisitive. At present it 
seems more likely that it will 
concentrate on its existing 
portfolio of interests before 
striking out on toe ac- 
quisitions trail again. The 
rating is modest given toe 
strong management and good 
growth prospects. 

Wm Morrison 

Wn Morrison Supermarkets 
may only have 1.4 percent of 
toe UK retail food market but 
in toe North of England, it is 
dominant. It has around 10 
per cent of toe maricet in 
Yorkshire, 5 per cent in 
Lancashire and about 3 per 
cent in the North-east 
Interim figures for toe half 
year to August 2 showed 
yesterday that the group’s

tinue to hit the right target toe

Laporte 


Industries 


Laporte’ Industries has 
changed its spots by moving 
.away ff An toe traditionally 
! cyclical markets of commod- 
ity-based chemicals into 
ipeciality chemicals. This 
jategory of business now 
accounts for about two-thinis 
ip turnover. 

new businesses are not 

noticeably caphal intensive. 
They generate cadi and emoy 
relatively high margins. More 
importantly they have en- 
hanced the quality of earn- 
ings and should give Laporte 
Ithe impetus to grow at 
around 15 per cent a year. 
That would give profits of 
£64 million this year. 

Initial worries that those 
niche businesses npght not be 
aS;Stablc as they had been 
mtide out to be should be 
by the feet that they 

idly spread by product 

and geographical area. There 
was also concern that toe 
mangement 
was in situ at the time 
acquisition would seek 
pastures new. However, La- 


of 


28.2 per cent to £9.6 million, 
helped by a change in the 
method 'of accounting for 
depredation. The rate of 
uul depreciation on freehold and 
de. * leasehold properties has been 
six reduced from 2 per cent to 1 
percent. 

Restating this year’s result 
on toe old basis, toe profit 
increase is still a creditable 
19.7 per cent 

Operating margins rose 
from 4.5 per cent to 4.6 per 
cent reflecting not only 
economies of scale, but also 
success in the higher-xnaigin 
fresh food area. In its newest 
stores, Morrison has created 
individual fresh food depart- 
ments in the traditional high 
street style to such good effect 
that this feature will be 
repeated where possible in 
new stores. 

The group is opening nine 
new stores in toe next two 
years at an average cost of £7 
nifllion'M* Store. Of toe four 
due to open in 1987, three are 
either edge-of-town or out-of- 
town stores. Three of toe five 
stores opening in 1 988 stores 
are m town centres. All will 
have car parks. 

Expansion is being 'fi- 
nanced by borrowings. The 
group's debt/equity ratio is 
low, standing at less than 20 
per cent at toe half year. It 
will rise to 36 per oem at the 
end of this year after capital 
expenditure of £20 million on 
new stores. In 1987 and 1988. 
there will be another £33 
million or so of capital expen- 
diture remaining and this will 
be debt-financed. 

Expansion of this order is 
ambitious, but well within 
toe. group’s capability. This 
year it should make nearly 
£20 million pretax profit, 
putting the shares on a 
prospective multiple of just 
under 17 — a premium 
multiple which reflects the 
growth prospects. 


Garnar shares wanted 


Strong & Fisher Holdings is 
offering to acquire the Garnar 
Booth shares , -it does not 
already own. 

For ordinary shares toe 
offer is one new Strong share, 
plus 242p cash for every two 
Garnar Booth shares. 

Full acceptance of the offer, 
assuming the exercise of all 
outstanding pptionsunder the 
Garnar Booth share option 
schemes, would involve toe 
payment of £123 million and 
toe issue of 5.1 million new 
Strong shares, representing 
25=9 per cent of the enlarged 
Strong issued capital 

Strong is also oftersuc 1 
cash for each Garnar 


preference share. 

Based on a price of l45p.for 
Strong shares, toe offers value 
Garnar at £20 million and 
each Garnar ordinary share at 
I93.5p. 

Garnar shareholders will 
have toe option of accepting 
Strong shares instead of cash 
to the extent that other accept- 
ing Garnar shareholders 
choose to rake 128p in cash for 
each Strong share to which 
they are entitled.

Australia brews change for beerage 


By Derek Harris, Industrial Editor 


.When the Elders JXL £1.4 
billion deal to buy Britain's 
sixth largest brewer. Courage, 
from Hanson Trust was an- 
nounced yesterday, Mr Brian 
Glover at the Campaign for 
Real Ale grumbled that it was 
just a case of “boozical chairs” 
among big combines, which 
would make little difference to 
the pub drinker. 

But that is not necessarily 
true, because the entry of,Mr 
John Elliott, the tough Austra- 
lian chairman of Melbourne- 
based Elders, into the British 
market inevitably signals a 
fierce battle among brands, 
especially in the lager sector, 
which is the only big growth 
area in a gradually declining 
beer market. 

The IXL man — IXL is 
typical Australian for “I 
excel” although Elders ac- 
quired it during the series of 
mergers which created Elders 
IXL — also has plans for 
selling an equity slice to 
tenants of Courage's 3,676 
tied houses. 

The idea is to replicate the 
Australian experience of 
motivating tenants to greater 
commercial success while also 
raising cash for the parent 
brewer. 

But otherwise the Elders 
decision to buy Courage rather 
than bid anew for Allied- 
Lyons. Britain's second big- 
gest brewer, means the biggest 
shake-up for more than a 
decade in that relatively 
comfortable industrial group- 
ing often called the “beerage.” 


In the last few weeks most' 
brewers have been raising beer 
prices by 2p a pint or more, 
Which Should help to maintain 
their healthy profit levels. 

The beer barons were last in 
turmoil when Grand Metro- 
politan. under the late Sir 
Maxwell Joseph, acquired 
Trumans in 1971 and Watney 
Mann the following year. 

Grand Met has an immedi- 
ate involvement with the El- 
ders move to Britain as a base 
for international expansion. 
Since 1982 Watney has been 
brewing and distributing the 
draught version of Foster's 
lager. Elders' best known 
product and also Australia's 
best-selling lager, in Britain. In 

Australian and US 
brewers are well 
placed to buy 

1984 there followed a similar 
exclusive licence for canned 
Foster’s. 

Both licensing deals run to 
1 996 although Elders and 
Grand Met are soon expected 
to discuss the deal. A possible 
upshot, given the likely 
promotional battles to be 
launched by an aggressive 
Elders, is that production and 
distribution will be shared 
before the mid-1990s. 

Watney is familiar with this 
pattern; it did a similar deal 
with Carisberg, the Danish 
company which has a brewery 
in Northamption. 


Mexico’s drive to 
reduce debt 
comes under fire 

From Alan Robinson, Mexico City 


The Mexican government 
has completed 16 debt-equity 
swap projects, worth 8200 
million (£135 million), in an 
attempt to lighten its SIOO 
billion foreign debt harden. 

However, there are indica- 
tions that debt-equity swap- 
ping will not be the panacea 
the authorities had hoped. 

The drive to transform debt 
into new foreign investment 
takes two basic forms. 

The first option is that a 
foreign creditor bank takes 
over stock in a state-owned 
company in lien of debt. 

Alternatively, the foreign 
bank can accept “debt 
certificates” issued by the 
Mexican government. These 
can then be sold to current or 
prospective investors at, for 
example, 60 cents to the 
dollar. 

The« the government under- 
takes to pay the investor 
between 80 and 90 cents to the 
dollar in Mexican pesos over 
13 years, provided the money 
is invested or kept in Mexico. 

To sweeten the pot, the 
government has eliminated the 
old 49 per cent foreign invest- 
ment limit for small and 
medium companies, allowing 
up to 100 per cent foreign 
ownership. 

And according to the For- 
eign Investment Commission, 
“further concessions are in the 
pipeline”. 

The government has an- 
nounced it will take over the 
foreign debts of 47 state- 
owned companies, “some of 
which will be susceptible to the 
debt-equity swapping 
mechanisms.” 

These include Che country's 
largest steel companies, Altos 
Homos de Mexico, Sicartsa 
and the recently dosed 
Fundidora Monterrey, as well 
as the national airline, 
Acrmexica, and seven of the 
nationalized banks. 

Sources dose to the Foreign 
Investment Commission un- 
officially revealed that Japa- 


nese investors want to increase 
their stake in the giant 
Sicartsa steel complex. 

Nissan is also talking to 
Citibank about acquiring 
enough debt certificates to 
control its Daizan Combi 
plant, which is due to open 
next year. 

Given the fact that the : 
private sector alone owes 
about $18 billion to foreign 
and domestic banks, the gov- 
ernment sees a vast potential 
in debt-equity swapping. 

But independent economists 
are warning that the strategy 
“could perpetuate our debt 
obligations without substan- 
tially diminishing the total 
debt, while allowing foreign 
capital to push out Mexican 
investors”. 

Critics point out that Mex- 
ico did not receive a single 
dollar In credits during the 
first half of this year, but its 
external debt grew by more 
than Si billion because of a 
steady devaluation of the peso. 

According to Mr Edgar 
Ortiz, president of the North 
American and Caribbean 
Countries' Economic and Fi- 
nance Association, Mexico 
paid a debt servicing bill of 
SI 19 billion, of which $385 
million was paid between 1977 
and 1986, “bnt the total 
foreign debt did not go down, it 
increased”. 

Mr Ortiz says the debt 
servicing bill agreed with the 
International Monetary Fund 
for this year and next comes to 
$20 2 billion. 

This, says Mr Ortiz, “will 
barely reduce the total debt, 
because Si 7. 2 billion of it will 
be interest payments”. 

Mr Ortiz and economic 
experts of the National 
University conclude that con- 
stant peso devaluation will 
eliminate the ground gained 
both through amortization 
payments and debt-equity 
swapping in the foreseeable 
future.

Speculation is rife on 
whether the Elders entry into 
the British market will mean 
that more foreign competition 
will come in as the big brewers 
increasingly adopt global 
strategies. 

Courage could just as easily 
have been the vehicle into the 
British market for Anheuser 
Bush, America's biggest 
brewer whose Budweiser is 
being produced here by 
Watney. 

And the same could be said 
for Mr Alan Bond's Australia- 
based Bond Corporation, 
whose Castlemaine XXXX, 
produced in Britain by Aliied- 
Lyons. is also making big 
inroads into the lager market 
behind Fosters. 

Either of these companies, 
and possibly Hanson Trust 
loo as it accumulates more 
cash from its sales of parts of 
the old Imperial Group, might 
look to mounting bids for 


Grand Met, which ’has long 
been the target of takeover 
speculation. 

Scottish and Newcastle 
Breweries, for which a success- 
fid bid for Courage would 
have been its most logical 
expansion, could also be a bid 
target in this new battle line- 
up in brewing. 

For Australian and Ameri- 
can brewers with their mature 
home markets, the timing is 
right for a predatory move 
abroad, says Mr John 
Dunsmore, drinks analyst at 
Wood Mackenzie, ihe brokers. 

He added: “The Monopo- 
lies and Mergers Commission, 
in its report on the Elders bid 
for Allied, showed that foreign 
newcomers would not face 
any great problems in mount- 
ing successful big-scale bids.” 

But the question remains of 
how Dders will use Courage to 
gear up the battle in Britain 
and elsewhere. 


Courage has shout 9 per 
cent of ihe beer market with 
such brands as Courage Best. 
John Smith's, and Hofineister 
and Kronenburg 1664 lagers. 
Lager accounts for about 40 
percent of its beer sales; rather 
lower than that of Bass (about 
48 per cent), Whitbread (47 
per cent) and Allied (46 per 
cent). But Scottish & New- 
castle is lower at about 38 per 
cent. 

To build up its lager port- 
folio, Courage has a licencing 
deal to market Miller Lite in 
Britain for that American 
brewer. Elders’ strength in 
lager will be a big factor in 
increasing the Courage thrust 
in the lager sector, which now 
accounts for about 41 percent 
of beer sales, but is expected to 

Stage is set for 
fierce battles 
among the lagers 

total about half the beer 
market by the end of the 
decade. 

Courage has been lowering 
its unit costs by dosing down 
old breweries and bringing in 
new, more efficient units. It is 
one of the lower-cost brewers 
in the industry. 

It closed breweries at Plym- 
outh and Newark and 
rationalized depots. A £5 mil- 
lion brewhouse came on 
stream at the John Smith's 
Tadcaster brewery . last 
November and a £16 minion 
development programme at 


the Bristol brewery is due for 
completion early next year. 

If Courage's portfolio of 
lager brands is boosted by 
Elders to match the strong 
Courage ale brands, the opera- 
tion would be in a good 
position should the Monopo- 
lies Commission's investiga- 
tion of the brewing industry 
lead to a dismantling of the 
tied house system. Those 
brewers with strong brands are , 
likely to benefit most if they 
lose direct control of pub 
outlets for their products. 

There is also the question of 
how the Commission would 
view Elders* scheme of offer- 
ing an equity stake to tenants 
of the tied pubs. The idea 
surfaced in Elders’ bid for 
Allied and is expected to be 
looked at again for Courage. 

Elders told the Commission 
it exposed joint ownership so . 
result in greater commitment 
of publicans to their business, 
an increased level of service to 
customers and a spur to 
competition through the in- 
troduction of entrepreneurs at 
the retail leveL 

Tenants could finance their 
stake through cadi flow and at 
the same time be protected 
against excessive rent rises. 
Allied's tenants were doubtful 
about the prospects of part 
ownership and the same prob- 
lem is likely to arise at 
Courage. 

But it could well mean that 
once the dust has settled, pubs . 
as well as the brewing in-, 
dusuy, wijl not be the same 
again when the big Australian 
gets into its stride in Britain. 


Montagu makes 
mark in Norway 

From Tony Samstug, Oslo 


It is common knowledge 
that Norway has bad a large 
surplus of money for years, at 
least until the collapse in oil 
prices took some of the wind 
out of its sails. 

And it is no secret that 
progressive deregulation of 
what had been a tightly con- 
trolled market has been the 
best banking news in this part 
of the world for at least as 
many years. 

it may come as a surprise, 
however, that only one British 
hank fa** taken advantage of 
the unprecedented opportu- 
nity to break into the lucrative 
Norwegian market. 

Samuel Montagu, the mer- 
chant tank now owned by' 
Midland, is one of seven 
foreign ban fc? — the others 
comprise three French, three 
American — to have set np 
shop in Norway since the 
previous Conservative admin- 
istration gave its approval. 

Montagu celebrates the first 
anniversary of its wholly- 
owned Norwegian subsidiary 
this month, describing the 
move as one element in the 
“establishment of a pan-Nor- 
dic merchant banking opera- 
tion spanning Sweden, 
Norway and Finland.” 

In addition to a longer- 
standing presence in Stock- 
holm, Montagu has been; 
granted a Finnish banking 
licence and hopes to ‘open a 
wholly-owned subsidiary in 
Helsinki by the end of the 
year. ■ 


The strategy, according to. 
Mr Morten Aas, managing' 
director of Samuel Montagu; 
A/S in Oslo, was the b rain -- 
child of Mr Steffen Gadd, a. 
Swede, and ■ formerly chief 
executive officer of the 
Scandinavian Bank in Lon- 
don, who joined Montagu for- 
a brief period. 1 

Mr Aas said: “He brought' 
with him the idea of a Nordic ■ 
presence, and recruited.: 
knowledgeable people.” 

He added: “The Nordic; 
countries were seen to have a 
need for somebody who couki ; 
come in and play the indepen- - 
dent mediator in areas like ! 

merchant acquisitions, where ^ 
traditionally deals have 
tended to be done on a'; 
friendship 'basis without a- 
great deal of attention to 
minority shareholders.” 

Norway, in particular, was a 
attractive as a well-developed', 
industrial society, wealthy, r 
stable — and with a long ■ 
histnry of strong trade rela- 
tions with Britain. 

Since Montagu opened 12, 
months ago, opportunities for 
deficit financing have in- ; 
creased substantially. 

Norway has been forced by ■ 
dwindling oil revenues to 
borrow internationally for the 
first time in many years. 

However, in the early 
months the bank has con-; 
centra ted on traditional ad- 
visory services rather than, 
lending.

A, 


J . Although we're experienced retailers, 
there are some areas in which others are 
even better qualified. 

These children, for example. 

As part of our development of 
Zodiac's 80 toy shops we've been talking to 
groups of them all over the country. 

(And, of course, to their paymasters 
- the parents.) 

The results of this research are 
helping us rethink our merchandise range 
and design a new trading formula. 

We're finding put just, which toys . 
to stock, and how to make Zodiac into a 
fun retailer that wijl attract more people. 

It might all sound obvious now. 

But without the backing, manage- 
ment and experience of our group, we 
doubt that it would ever have been done 
so fast. 

Already, in fact, the results are 
beginning to flow through the doors. 

Store traffic is up- by almost 
a quarter 

Market share has shown an equally 
dramatic rise. 

And figures for the first half of 
the year (notoriously bad in the toy trade) 
are the best ever. 

Throughout the company, in fact, 
we're making dramatic improvements.

Motoring by Clifford Webb 


Gtroen’s exciting new hatchback 


These are exciting times at 
Citroen UK’s Slough, Berk- 
shire headquarters. Sales so 
far this year are up by a 
remarkable 30 per cent ihanks 
mainly to the success of the 
3X medium car. U has 
brought so much. traffic to 
dealers' showrooms that the 
rest of the range has also 
benefitted. But the best is stall 
to come — a new small batch- 
back to compete in the big 
selling Ford Fiesta-Austin 
Metro sector of the market. 

The new Citroen AX went 
on sale in France this week 
with a publicity campaign 
proclaiming it to be at least 
equal and in most cases 
superior to current class lead- 
ers in performance, fuel econ- 
omy. interior space, 
aerodynamic efficiency and 
the quality of its ride. 

. I. .am extremely wary of 
launch claims, but even on tbe 
basis of one day spent driving 
an AX in Ranee I feel 
confident enough to predict 
that this is one of the most 
significant new small cars to 
appear anywhere in the world 
since the Mini turned smalt 
car design on its head. 

Bernard Feloux, managing 
director of Citroen UK is so 
confident that he has another 
winner that he told me 
“When the AX reaches Britain 
next summer we shall be able 
to attack the whole market 
and not as we were in the past 
restricted to the bit left over 
after the major British-based 
manufacturers and leading 
importers had taken the lion's 
Share. 

“The AX is the most 
economical, petrol-powered 
four-wheel car on sale. It will 
beat many diesels”. 

Official fuel consumption 
figures should be seen as a 
means of comparing one car 
with another using the same 
test. They take no account of 
Individual (hiving techniques. 
However, my initial en- 
counter with AX suggests that 
it wiD set standards of fuel 


economy which rivals will 
find almost impossible to 
match in the short-term. 

At the heart of the new- 
comer is a new family of 
lightweight all alloy four- 
cylinder engines being pro- 
duced at present in three sizes 
954cc, l!24cc and 1360cc. I 
returned 50.4 mpg over a 73- 
mife-nio in tbe biggest engine 
version, the AX 14, without 
once malting a conscious ef- 
fort to drive slowly. Heavur- 
footed colleagues brought the 
average for our group down to 
44.1 mpg-stfll a very 
impressive result. 

This is not simply a prac- 
tical, money-saving small car, 
however, but one of the best- 
looking in its class. It «s 
extremely light and very «w- 
dynamicalfy efficient - two 
more reasons for its miserly 
consumption. It weighs be- 
tween 1.4101b and 1,5321b 
depending on the modeL That 
is no less than 220 lbs tighter 
than tbe average for its class. 
Small cars are notoriously 
difficult to style with good 
aerodynamic qualities. 
Citroen daim a remarkable 
0.31 drag coefficient for AX — 
a figure many larger cars only 

aspire to. 

Another key factor is the 
new Peugeot gearbox 
codenamed MA. It is fight, 
easy to operate and lubricated 
for life with a special trans- 
mission otL I understand this 
is the box which Austin Rover 
will be manufacturing under 
licence at Longbridge next 
year. 

On the road AX drivers will 
find a very reassuring 
combination of zippy 
acceleration, excellent high- 
speed cruising, leech-tike 
road-holding and delightfully 
neutral handling. My one 
reservation is the choppy ride 
with the driver only. This ism 
obvious penalty or its extreme 
lightness and improves 
considerably with even a sin- 
gle passenger.

market 

The AX is competing in the 
most cut-throat sector of tbe 
entire European market, the 
B2 segment which accounts 
for more than one in four of all 
private sales. It is also expand- 
ing rapidly from 2. 25 million 
care in 1984 to 3 million fast 
year and is currently headed 
by foe Fiat Una 

At the beginning of this year 
Citroen UK set its sights on 
doubling its market share 
within 30 months. Within 6 
months sales increased by 30 
per cent — the biggest 
improvement by any signifi- 
cant car manufacturer. BX 
launched three years ago 
changed the company’s image 
entirely. It had always been at 
the cutting edge of new, 
adventurous technology and 
as a result its care were seen to 
be over-engineered and expen- 
sive to maintain. As such they 
were ignored by the most 
important sector of the British 
market, the fleet buyer. Today 
BX is a much sought-after 
fleet car showing used values 
in trade guides which are 
better than many old fleet 
favourites. 

The indications are that its 
Gttie sister AX wfll continue to 
boost Citrocu's new image. It 
will aim draw in the much 
needed younger buyers who 
until now have been mainly 
students interested in the vet- 
eran “cult” model the 2CV. 

BMW ‘Q’ car 

One of the problems with 
today's aggressive-looking 
high performance cars is the 
attention they attract from 
police cais.The frequency with 
which this occurs on the M4, 
dose to the Bracknell bead- 
quarters of BMW (GB) has 
bad some members of staff 
there debating whether to 
swop to less conspicuous 
models. 

Such a car is the new BMW 
MS. With a top speed of 1S3 
mph ft is tbe fastest four-door 
saloon available in Britain but

Except in the wet there are 
no problems about hanHKng 
all that power. A new tuned 
suspension has been devel- 
oped with single tube gas- 
filled shock absorbers which 
make M5 very safe. Only the 
brave or fool-hardy wifl find 
its limits in the dry. In tbe wet 
ft is another story. Power must 
be applied with care during 
cornering although the timfteo 
slip differential with a 25 per 
cent locking action reduces 
wheel spin and improves 
traction. 

Putting such a big engine 
into a comparatively tight car 
means that under bonnet 
space is at a premium. It also 
means that tbe fore and aft 
balance of tbe car becomes 
more critical. To counter this 
the very large battery is 
housed m its own compart- 
ment set in the offside of the 
boot. Unfortunately that 
means a subs tantial loss of 
luggage space. A set of golf 
dubs can no longer be bid 
across the boot floor but have 
to be wedged at an inconve- 
nient, space-wasting angle. ■ -

Furniture designers sitting pretty 


By Feta Levi 

flux, a small design partnership set up 
two years ago by two Royal College of 
Art graduates, is one of the youngest 
companies to take a stand at the Milan 
Furniture Exhibition, the prestige fur- 
niture fair. 

On view will be a wide range of metal- 
based Furniture designed by Flux and 
manufactured under licence by Hriskins 
Ud. a 130-year-old Midlands company. 

Flux was started by Paul Chamberlain 
and Peter Christian, both aged 27. Mr 
Chamberlain tells me “On graduating 
wc went to the Milan show, thinking that 
wc would work abroad, but we were 
surprised to find that the furniture didn't 
excite us — there were more ideas and 
vitality in Britain." 

Alan early show. Mr Chambertain was 
approached by Pointers, a Bristol-based 
company which helps designers develop 
aind market their ideas. Through Point- 
ers. a chaise longue, one of 
Chamberlain's award-winning designs, 
was marketed. 

Flux quickly realized the importance 
of developing a range of products such as 
lights, chairs, tables and accessories and 
contracting-out manufacture. “But." Mr 
Christian says, “we received no advice at 
college on how to set about sub- 
contracting and encountered many pit- 
falls. It takes time to find reliable quality 
metal and woodwork shops and it can be 
a hassle trying to locate a particular 
screw or material. 

“We have had the experience of 
receiving 100 chairs with one leg 2in. 



Paul Chamberlain, left, and Peter 
Christian: Milan design success 

shorter than the rest or colours simply 
being wrong." 

Last year, as members of the Indepen- 
dent Designers Federation, they exhib- 
ited at Olympia, where Peter Gardiner. 
Hoskins’ marketing manager, spotted 
them. This company, which manufac- 
tures NHS hospital beds (a dedining 
market) was looking for new products. It 
has recently invested in sophisticated 
production machinery, including a semi- 
automatic paint plant and a robot 


Cheers! Here’s to eight new 
jobs at the bright go-getters 


welding system, and • is developing a 
range of furniture with the Young British 
Designers label. 

The Hoskins- Flux co-operation re- 
sulted innhe Flux range of metal-based 
tables, seating, lighting and coat-racks 
being manufactured’ by Hoskins and 
launched by that company last May at 
Interior Design International. London's 
premier furniture exhibition. 

Mr Gardiner says: “We didn't expect 
an initial response,. but had 350 direct 
inquiries, which has already resulted fn 
1 0 orders {six for export) worth £15,000. 
We have the capability to produce an 
extra £2.5 mill ion to£3 million of work 
annually in these new fash ton. design-led 
products. 

Chamberlain and Christian represent 
a shrewder and tougher generation of 
British designers now emerging from 
Britain's colleges, interested in designing 
a wide range of goods and prepared to 
sub-contract manufacture or manufac- 
ture under licence in order to retain 
quality control 

Flux h&~ received a 60 percent British 
Overseas Trade Board grant for the cost 
of the £4.500 stand at Milan. Mr 
Chamberlain says “I don't think that 
•many young^lesigners are aware that the 
grant is available to British companies 
exhibiting for the first time. BOTB will 
cover 30 percent of the cost the second 
year, then you are on your own." 

Though Flux's current turnover of 
£30,000 is tiny, it expects a sharp rise this 
year with income from royalties on the 
Hoskins’ sales. Flux hopes to return from 
Milan with a hill order book.

Leisure Lighting, which specializes in 
lighting for nightclubs, pubs and leisure

Graney, has been appointed.Mr 
Soppelsa said: “Orders are getting bi^er 
and it is certain that we shall be doubling 
our turnover in the second year.”

By Srilcumar Sen. Boxing Correspondent 


itt gets a Eft np in the world at the Albert HaU after his 
light-middle weight contest against John Tan Elteren 


RUGBY UNION 


Chris Pyatt, the Leicester 
fighumiddleweighi. may hare 
broBgbt the sparse Albert Hall 
crowd to their feet with his 90 
seconds demolition of John no 
Elteren. of The Netherlands, to 
lift the vacant European title, 
hot alter the Dutchman's (allure 
to pot np the slightest semblance 
of defence* the British Boxing 

Board of Control arc expec ted to 

look more carefully al fntnre 
challengers put np by the Euro- 
pean Boxing Union for Pyatt. 

John Morris, the secretary of 
the board, said yesterday: “We 
have to watch more carefully 
■ext rime in view of Pyatt 's 
ability. After what we saw last 
night we are going to have tdl 
the EBU. M 

While It is not possible to 
crate to condnshms about van 

EJteren's ability on the basis of a 

first round knock-out, there 
have been so many EBU 
nominations in the past that 
have proved to be mismatches 
and It is difficult not to view 
Wednesday night's contest with 
some concern. 

In view of the board's past 
protests to the EBU about 
opponents for Magri and 
McGriftan it is surprising that 
they did not question the EBU*s 
choice. Morris said: "His record 
looked right. He had. IS fights 
and one defeat and was next in 
tine after Pyatt".

And how arc the mighty likely 
to fell? There are those, not 
approving of Pontypool's 
domineering style, who have 
long wished for the day when 
they no longer rule the roost. 
Bui therein lies some prejudice. 

' What is happening now. 
though.' is of a di ffe re n t order of ~ 
argument- There is no doubt 
lhai in the minds of a great 
many people who are not di- 
rectly associated with a club, 
that the controversial drama 
being played out at the moment, 
which centres around David 
Bishop, is not going to draw 
quietly and lespeciroUy to a 
dose. 

The lines of confrontation 
have been marked, between 
those who approve and those 
who disapprove of - the dub's 
recent actions. On one side there 
is a kind of martyr in the 
making, whilst tte other side see , 
thafffifc soul and integrity' of’ 
Welsh rugby is at stake. 

On die one ride there is. a 
strange kind of -hubris and 
macho musde-fkring going on 
which the other side cannot 
analyse rationally and which,- 
they feeL can lead only to a sad 
and pitiful end. 

A maner which might have 
been resolved internally within 
the dub a long time ago has been 
forced to rumble on and is now 
creating a momentum which 
forces Bishop to remain in the 
forefront. He is the pimple 
which caused the original irrita- 
tion. but it is others who are now 
allowing the serious raftamma- 

Freedom to 
fix fixtures 
is important 

There are already the mak- 
ings et an ins tme t i r e wrangle as 
the new structured season in 
England toons Hearer (David 
Hands writes). Those dubs 
involved in the John Smith's 
merit taWes - and Courage, the 
brewing company, re a ffi rmed 
their faith in the competition 
yesterday — maintain their right 
lo make their own fixtures even 
though not all of them are 
agreed on the principle. 

Harlequins, for i ns t an c e , see 
the logical consequence of the 
present competition as a fidly- 
btown league with d e sig nated 
Saturdays and fixtures made by 
an .outside agency (in this case 
one- assumes, the Rugby Foot- 
ball Umoa). Bat Ken Phillips 
(Bedford), chairman of the merit 
tables organizing committee, 
said the freedom to arrange 
fixtures was important because 
it permitted flexibility in the 
light of existing important fix- 
tures, notably those against 
Welsh chibs. 

For this season merit table 
dabs are required nr play a 
■atom eight of 11 games 
(next season it win belO) with 
phdngs worked out on a 
percentage basis, though an 
appticatfos k before the RFU 
competitions subcommittee for 
platings to be worked out on a 
points basis: three for a win, one 
for a draw, with a bonus point to 
both chibs for the fixture being 
played (this last to eneoarage 

the rearrangement of fixtures 
affected by bad weather). 

There is also some dispute as 
to whether all the table games 
should be played before Christ- - 
1 mas, building into the divisional 
championship and snbseqaently 
the international champions hip 
or whether the competition 
sbonld be allowed to stretch over 
the whole season to m ainta i n 
interest. 

John Smith's are in the 
second year of a three year 
pgreement which this season 
sets their contribution at 
£85^00. Mike Reynolds, their 
director of public relations, said: 
“We would welcome the 
opportunity to be involved in 
discussions on wider longer term 
sponsorship possibilities." 

Andrew’s debut 

Rob Andrew, the England 
Stand-off half, will make bis first 
team debut for Wasps at Liver- 
pool tomorrow. He played for 
the second XV lasr week. Wasps 
also bring in Simon Smith, the 
wing, for his first game of the 
season.

lion to fester. The cure is a long 
time coming. 

Pontypool might have taken a 
leaf out of Newport's book. In 
their team of Wednesday eve- 
ning ax Pontypool Park were two 
players. Young and Perry, who 
were sent off the! field when 
playing against London Welsh 
last year. Before the incident 
was ever discussed by the Welsh 
Rugby Union (WRU) disci- 
plinary committee, the Newport 
club took internal action and 
suspended both players im- 
mediately, one of them for a 
year. 

The WRU are faced with the 
fundamental question as to 
whether a player who has been 
convicted in a coun or law for. 
common assault on the rugby . 
pitch but who had not been sent 
off and is now on a suspended 
sentence, should, be allowed to 
continue to play the game: but 
that a player SeTn off'tftC field by~ 
-a rugby referee -for--* similar 
offence cannot. ' : * 

Whilst Pontypool would ap- 
pear to be within their rights to 
chopse Bishop (he has again 
been selected to play for them at 
home to Penarth on Saturday), 
and the WRU had left the door 
open through which they had 
not expected the horse to bolt, it 
is questionable whether it was a 
judicious step to take. It appears 
that the dub had had a change of 
heart over the player. 

At the end of last season, 
because, of Bishop's casual ap- 
proach to general team disci- 
pline. the club had decided that 
there should be a parting of the 


ways. A view which was re- 
peated recently before he was 
then selected to play against 
Ebbw Vale. During the dose 
season the player had in con- 
sequence applied to play for 
Other Welsh dubs. 

What was required for al) 
concerned was action to defuse a 
highly charged and contentious 
issue. Instead, a laager mentality 
prevailed which makes Ponty- 
pool appear as if they are 
cocking a snook at outside 
opinion and what might appear 
lo be the best interests of rugby. 
It is not a comfortable route that 
Pontypool have chosen to 
uaveL 

They were instrumental in 
calling off fixtures wi.lh. 
Newbndge ai the. end of last 
season. Whatever the casualties 
on the Pontypool side were, the 
bleak statistics for Newbridge 
showed' that * they ended the 
ISiatHr 'wffh ' only 13 players, 
having already -used their quoto 
of two replacements. - 

It was a tempestuous match. 
So much so that the sponsor of 
the game. Brian Lewis, of How- 
ells Garages. Cardiff when 
asked to renew his sponsorship 
for this coming season, refused 
to do so on the grounds that his 
customers did not want to see 
that kind of behaviour. 

At about the same time one of 
their most famous and respected 
players. Graham Price; was, for 
the first time in his illustrious 
career, sent off the field at 
Coventry. Unless they are care- 
ful the whole dub might be sent, 
proverbially, to that town.

RUGBY LEAGUE 


Retirement 
law is 
introduced 

By Keith Macklin 

Professional players will in 
future have to sign off their 
careers as well as sign on. At a 
special meeting of dubs in 
Leeds, it was decided that a new 
law would be introduced into 
players' contracts, requiring 
them to sign a "declaration of 
retirement" at the end of their 
playing careers. 

This is to avoid repetition of 
recent problems caused by play- 
ers who have joined dubs as 
coaches without first quitting 
the playing register of their 
previous club. The players con- 
cerned are David Ward, who 
went from Leeds to Hunslci as 
coach while still a registered 
Leeds player, and .Clive Grif- 
fiths. who quirSalfotri rn simitar 
circumstances to join the staff at 
St Hdens. i- 

The new. regulation ensures 
-ihat.4£playCTS turn out again for 
their new dubs, a transfer fee is 
payable, or the player must be 
struck, off the ■ former club's 
register. • ■ ~ 

• The first international be- 
tween Great Britain and Austra- 
lia on October 25 at Old 
Trafford football ground will be 
the only game io be staged that 
day. The British Amateur 
Rugby League Association have 
given dubs permission to post- 
pone National League fixtures, 
and there will be no matches 

E layed in tire Alliance or -Cods 
agues.

RACING: PORTLAND WINNER CAN ADD TO TRAINER’S IMRRESSIVERECORD IN TODAY’S AYR GOLD CUP 


* * ***®fc. 


Felipe Toro to complete 
notable sprint double 


■; The stalls failure and- sub- 
; ‘■sequent false starts by flag in 
' last week's eventful Portland 
Handicap -at Doncaster de- 
t tracted, in my view, from the 

- impressive performance of the 
‘ winner, ' Felipe Toro, who 

seeks to become only the third 
Portland scorer to go on and 
capture the always compet- 
‘ iii ve Ayr Gold Cup, tradition- 
ally the highlight of the four- 
day Western meeting. 

Royben and Jon Georae 
; have already landed the big 
sprint double, and now I 
expect Peter Easterby’s fast- 
improving three-year-old to 
follow ip their footsteps, and 

- in doing so extend his winning 
•Sequence, to six. 

.AtDon caster John Lowe, 
-on .my selection, took full 
advantage of the actual flag 
start from his low draw and 
made all the running on the far 
rails to sail dear by four 
lengths . from his stable 
.companion, Bollin Emily, 
who is allowed only 61b for 
that comprehensive defeat 
today. . 

Felipe Toro still looks on a 
. handy mark today with 8st 61b 
and this determined sprinter, 
, who runs best in blinkers, can 
'.make' the most of another 
'.favourable draw, this time 
.'.highest of the 29 runners,' to 
. give his ^trainer his third Cup 
victory in four, years, foUow- 
' mg '. Polly’s Brother ' in 1983 
and Able Albert, 1984. : - 

Another well-drawn can- 
didate, and the one I fear 
most, is the Richard Shaw- 
trained Jokist, who has won 


ByMandarin 

his latest three starts in good 
style: He has the beating of the 
Epsom hope Compleat on last 
month's Yarmouth running 
, and is dearly on the upgrade. 

Peter Easterby’s brother, 
Mick, reties on Catherine’s 
Well, who win make her 
challenge on the far side. . This 
prolific winner, successful in 
her last four starts, 
hashowever, taken a sharp 
rise in the weights, and is only 
61b better off for a fbur-iengtlis 
beating by Felipe Toro at 
Yorkw July. 

There are high hopes for 
two Bericshireoonteiufers,-tlie 
treble-seeking Manton Dan, 
trained by Nick Vigors, and 
David Aibuthnot's consistent 
Padre Pio. Toby Balding’s 
Stewards' Cup scorer. Green 
Ruby showed at York that he 
has retained his excellent 
form. 

However, the fast con- 
ditions and ideal draw point to 
Felipe Toro continuing his 
triumphant march. 

John Dunlop, the Arundel 
trainer, should continue his 
fine record at this course by 
saddling a double with 
Inn ish more Island in the 
Keith Aspiand Memorial 
Stakes and promising two- 
year-old War Brave, who con- 
tests the Ladbrokes Lanton 
-Leisure Stakes. 

At Newbury spectators win 
be hoping fora classic pointer 
.from the Haynes, Hanson and 
Clark Stakes. Last season the 
subsequent Derby - winner, 
Shahrastani, made his debut 
in this mile event, finishing

Imagine Lord’s as a leisure centre 



\ THE 
,# STATE OF 
If I ENGLISH 
CRICKET 


1 


After the cricket writer and 
the cricketers, the cricket- 
lovers answer the questions 
put by The Times. What 
has gone wrong with 
English cricket? And how 
can it be put to rights? 
Lord Wigoder talks to 
Paul Martin. 


B aron Wigoder of Cheetham in 
the City or Manchester, war- 
time artillery officer. Queen's 
Counsel, Recorder of the 
Crown Court, judge at the Old 
Bailey, member of the MCC, Life Peer 
since 1974. and the Liberals’ Chief Whip 
in the Lords, now chairman of BUPA- A 
not untypical figure of the Establish- 
ment. you might infer. You would be 
wrong. 

For while be praises the progress 
being made in overcoming class di- 
visions in cricket, he describes the 
game's rulers as “to a substantial extent, 
a self-perpetuating oligarchy living in a 
bygone age." 

Lord Wigoder shakes his head. “We 
have got to a situation now when one 
can't help thinking that if W.G. Grace 
were alive today, he would be sus- 
pended for showing dissent and prob- 
ably ordered to have his beard cut as 
well." 


Who, they may be asking at Lord's, is 
this fellow? Which school tie does he 
wear, and which county did he play for? 
Answer Basil Wigoder, son of a dentist, 
was a grammar school boy, went up to 
Oxford, and never played county 
cricket. Bui he loves thegame; he played 
it passably well at dub, then village 
green level, until he called it a day a cou- 
ple of years ago in his 64th year. “My 
reflexes got too slow for decent Adding 
and I didn’t want to let my team down.* 

Lord Wigoder has been a devotee of 
cricket since early childhood, when he 
would gaze endlessly through his nurs- 
ery window in Manchester at the 
exploits on the adjoining dub cricket 
ground “to the great detriment of my 
homework." 

One of those exploits, incidentally, 
was a six struck by a certain medium- 
pacer called Bolton, whom he remem- 
bers well, that felled an old lady named 
Mrs Stone walking in the adjacent 
street. It led to the famous Bolton and 
Stone court case that established the law 
regarding cricketers' and dubs' liability 
when big hits strike passers-by. 

Young Basil would sneak out alone 
into the back garden and spend many 
hours a week bowling a tennis ball at a 
brick in front of a walL Epic Ashes Test 
matches were decided there in ac- 
cordance with the strict rules set by his 
vivid imagination. He also kept a full 
scorecard of each fictitious encounter, 
and did his averages at the end of the 
season. “Later, as a teenager.! would 
impose on relatives around the country 
wherever there was a Test match over 
weekends." 

He might have been immortalized 
had he been bom a little earlier. What he 
took to be off-breaks turned out, when 
his father took him to Old TrafFond fin- 
some coaching, to have been googlies. 
“Bosies may have been called Wipgies." 
As a lifelong leg-spinner, while, of 
course, also throwing in the occasional 
wrong 'un, he bemoans the demise of 
the leg-spin art in England. 

Lora Wigoder, since he became 


chairman of BUPA, which, by the way, 
provides health insurance for most 
county cricketers,, has cunningly ar- 
ranged for his company to buy boxes at 
many county grounds, “which L by pure 
coincidence, can visit during big 
matches”. 

He isdepressed that the full houses he 
recalls for county matches at Old 
Trafford are generally a thug of the 
past, “For most days of the season, there 
are a lot of rather undistinguished 
players who are all mdistmgnishable 
from one another, playing rather point- 
lessly on deserted cricket grounds — a 
very sad sight.” 

England's cricketing malady can best 
be treated, he believes, by attacking the 
cause of the disease at county leveL 
“Most cricket grounds are not attractive 
places to go to; the seats are incredibly 
uncomfortable, the food is invariably 
awful, the lavatories are depressing, 
there are hardly any telephones, and rf 
it's crowded at a one-day game, queues 
form in all directions." 

T he solution Lord Wigoder 
favours is to turn cricket 
grounds into family sports and 
recreation centres, funded by a 
share of the burgeoning in- 
come from sponsorship- “Take Lord's. 
Right in the heart of London, and with 
lots of room on the Nursery ground. 
People are crying out for sports facilities 
and it's empty half the year. IPs an ideal 
place to put in some bowling greens, 
indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a 
children's playground, tennis courts and 
so on. You could have family member- 
ship. so that wives and children could 
spend the day and have fun, while the 
father watches the cricket and takes the 
children back to the play area. We could 
do that around the country, tike many 
European football grounds are starting 
to do." 

He concedes it is a fairly radical idea, 
and he doubts whether today’s admin- 
istrators are sufficiently innovative to 
implement it —just as they failed to see

Lord Wigoder: radical solutions 

that Kerry Packer’s approach had, on 
balance, more advantages than draw- 
backs. “There are still hangovers from 
the Gentlemen versus Players era. The 
game’s rulers have improved, and are 
doing weD in attracting sponsorship, but 
for which the game would, by now, be 
dead. But it seems sadly symbolic that 
the only game you can play at Lord’s 
besides cricket is the totally esoteric 
Real Tennis." 

In general, too, he believes there is a 
need for more emphasis on manage- 
ment skins in selecting administrators. 


and less on their cricketing pedigree, 
though he says management training if 
neglected throughout society. The ques- - 
lion of management is espedallycruoal 
in overseas - touring sides, be points out. J 

He largely blames the cncket 
Establishment for foe hostility between 
them and those he calls “cricket's great 
Characters”/ The latter, he fears, are an 
endangered species,- with a dull 
uniformity" bong sought rather than 
“the occasional eccentric, sometimes 
abrasive, personality that we should 
cherish. Cricket is a game you can 
express yourself in more vividly than in 
any other sport I can think o£ 

The game would be in a much more 

healthy stare if tbere-was a Botham-type 
figure in every county side. 1 appreciate 

they are sometimes a bit of a nuisance, 
but it's up to the administrators to get 
round that, by appointing firm man- 
agers and captains.” .. . . . 

-Part of the problem, he feels, is that, 
there are too many upper-middle class 
admini strators running tfae game, with a 
different socio-economic background to 
the bulk of today's players. “They lack 
the imagination to put themselves in the 
players’ shoes." 

Botham, he says, should be accepted 
warts and all; with bis vices as well as his 
virtues. “It needs a great deal of 
sympathy to deal with the problems that 
inevitably arise with the tre m endous 
■ publicity far everything he does." 

Despite his years as an CHd Bailey 
judge and leading banister, he is not 
convinced that Botham's admitted 

drug-taking has deserved the v tificatioa 
it goL “Soft drugs used moderately may 
even be less harmful than too much 
alcohol Certainly 1 am told you can 
play cricket better after a marijuana 
cigarette than after a couple of frints of 
beer." 

Incidentally* “though 1 regret to say it 
as I enjoy a drink," Lord Wigoder wants 
the sale of liquor severely restricted, but 
not entirely outlawed, at cricket 
matches. “There is just too much of it 
around, and the knits can consume it 


hour after hour." He is deeply worried 
that the hooligan dement notorious to 
football (another game- be loves) is 
looking; to cricket grounds as ..ah 
alternative' venue for its vite behaviour. 

To return to t he cou nty scene; Lord 

the^matdies u> S finurdays are^cc^ted 
without delay. “Four-day matches may 
bring back crowds as each day’s play 
will mean something. The three-day 
game has become totally artificial 
People going on foe first two days feel 
foe cricket they see will have little 
relevance to the result. For the first two 
days, nothing happens except prepara- 
tions fora contrived declaration during 
foe third day. Then ifsa sort of one-day 
run-chase." 


O nce county cricket picks up, 
and cricket grounds become 
fun places. Lord Wigoder 
believes the youngsters will 
be stimulated to look 'at 
cricket as a worthwhile career. “You 
have to convince youngsters they’ll get a 
lot of pleasure playing foe game. At 
present, bow can you expect youngsters 
to want a career, performing m a rather 
pointless way before a dozen 
spectators?" 

Another of Lord Wigoder’s iconoclas- 
tic views is that we should be encourag- 
ing more overseas players, not seeking 
to keep most of them out “Without 
overseas players, no average county 
batsman would ever face a real fast 
bowler, and very few English bowlers 
would have foe chance to bowl to a man 
of Viv Richards' calibre. I don't believe 
promising cricketers, who are in short 
supply anyway, are being kept out of 
county sides by overseas cricketers. 

“They not only add an enormous 
amount to the quality and attraction of 
the game, helping to stop the decline in 
crowds, but 1 suspect if their energies 
were property haroassed, they would be 
of tremendous use to younger cricketers 
coining on in the side." 


Tim Rice, song-writer, on the sport he loves 


Why do people go 
on knocking 
the game so much? 

T his week I told a distin- amateur's point of view, my fust XI 
guished and well-known are as follows: 
member of England's Test j. The decline of cricket in many 
team that I was writing a schools. 

BAnle An bWg it ni n u n m n» > * 




T his week I told a distin- 
guished and well-known 
member of England's Test 
team that I was writing a 
few words on what's wrong 
with cricket in this country. He said 
that one of the things that was wrong 
was that too many people were asking 
what was wrong. 

He has a point There are many 
aspects of die game I have loved fear 
over 30 yeara that arein great shape. I 
believe that foe playing skills of foe 
best players are as gnat as those of 
many of foe giants of the past and that 
the names of Botham, Gower, Gooch 
and Lamb (for example) will be held 
in esteem long after they have retired. 

I believe that public interest in foe 
game is still enormous, despite foe 
lack of consistent success enjoyed by 
the England team in recent years. 
Coverage in foe Press and on radio 
and television in many quarters is 
excellent; cricket literature thrives. 
The standard of fielding is markedly 
better than It has ever been. 

The people who earn their living 
from the game are among the .most 
delightful in any profession. The best 
players are earning the kind of money 
their talent deserves. One of the 
principle reasons why the England 
team struggles at times is that 
everyone else has improved rather 
than any deterioration in England's 
standards. 

I go to a great many first-class and 
one-day fixtures and nearly always 
feel 1 have had some worthwhile 
entertainment. Club and village 
cricket continues with unalloyed 
charm and sociability. 

But 1 do have a few concerns, many 
of which have been well-rehearsed by 
others. I realize that there are often 
economic arguments which prevent 
some of my wishes being granted, bat 
from a selfish and enthusiastic 


amateur's point of view, my first XI 
are as follows: 

I: The decline of cricket in man; 
schools. 

II: The appalling and moronic 
behaviour of crowds: mindless 
dnmfceness often the cause as far as 
England supporters are concerned; 
some incomprehensible desire for 
noise as far as other supporters are 
concerned. Commentators in foe me- 
dia and officials at grounds often seem 
ludicrously tolerant of pitch ravashms 
and relentless hubbub. 

Ill: The covering of pitches which 
eliminates much of foe glorious 
uncertainty of the game and variety of 
bowling. 

IV: The reluctance to introduce 
four-day county championship 
matches which would give more 
players the chance to shine and 
prepare for foe ultimate examination 
of Test matches. It would also mean 
that uncovered pitches would not lead 
to too many draws through time lost. 
As far as cricket lovers are concerned, 
the county championship is for read- 
ing about as much as for watching and 
I am fed up with reading about 
contrived finishes and forfeited in- 
nings. 

V: Still too many overseas players 
in county cricket 

VL Man-of-foe-match awards are 
meaningless sideshows- It is a team 
game and however distinguished the 
arbiter be cannot often really know 
who made foe most vital contribution. 
The cricketers realize this and spEt 
foe winnings anyway. 

VUs Too many Test matches- If a 
team is beaten badly in one series, it is 
all too soon Dang into another against 
the same opposition. Consequently it 
is half-beaten before it starts. 
Bradman tore our bowling apart at 
respectable intervals. 

Mil: Far too many one-day inter-

Millfield’s lessons pay off

Lord Home, the onlv Brit- 


Lord Home, the only Brit- 
ish Prime Minister to’ have 
played first-class cricket is a 
man who understands the 
need for leadership (Paul Mar- 
tin writes). He does not sec 
much evidence of it in the 
England side. England ex- 
pects. he says, that every 
captain should "know his own 
mind." Understanding of the 
game and its tactics are not 
sufficient. 

“The captain's authority 
must be asserted and obeyed." 
Lord Home remarked. He, 
feels it is particularly im- - 
4 * porta nt for overseas lours. “I 
. think the old captains asserted 
discipline very strongly." 

Standards have declined 
worldwide, he believes, apan 
from the West Indians. But he 
sympathizes with England’s 
plight: “There weren't so 
many distractions in the 
past." 

He believes today’s pro- 
fessionals play too much 
cricket. .And he is particularly 
disappointed by bowlers. 
“Covered wickets have led to 
% a sad decline in spin bowlers. 
Leg-spin is a dying art. But the 
kev lo success these days is 
fast bowlers and we simply 
don't produce enough.” 

Lora Home, a former MCC 
president, still enthuses in his 
twin interests of cricket and 
politics. Whenever he is in 
London he tries to attend not 
only the Lords, but also 
Lord's. 


B lame for Engjand’s cricket 
woes is often laid at foe doors 
of our schools. Millfield, in 
Somerset, is, however, beyond 
such criticism. Thanks largely 
to the indomitable win of Colin, 
Atkinson, this independent school (he 
shies away from the term “public") has 
become cricket education's superpower. 

It boasts two present county captains. 
Peter Roebuck, of Somerset, and David 
Graveney. of Gloucestershire, as well as 
several other first-class cricketers. At 
one stage recently. 11 of its old boys 
were on county stalls. 

Yet. when Mr Atkinson came to the 
school in 1960. it had no reputation for 
cricket: only, one of its ex-pupils had 
gained an Oxbridge blue. “It gradually 
grew." Mr Atkinson, now- foe school 
principal, recalls proudly. 

He points to the superb facilities he 
has installed, including a covered 
indoor riding school which has been 
converted into a cricket pitch and nets, 
as well as artificial pitches laid on 
outside fields. The school's reputation 
produces a spiral he explains, with 
more cricket-loving parents sending 
their children there and cricket-minded 
teachers seeking to join the staff 
Mr Atkinson, who is also the presi- 
dent of Somerset and a member of the 
Test and County Cricket Board, is not 
entirely cock-a-hoop though. He is 
saddened that his light shines so brightly 
while in the State schools cricket's torch 
grows dimmer. “I have a lot of 
sympathy with the State school 
teachers," he says. 

“Their education departments' bud- 
gets are so tight it is not surprising they 
put classroom facilities and equipment 
as priorities ahead of cricket pitches, 
which are. unlike soccer and rugby 
fields, costly to maintain." 

He sees some “light at foe end of the 


tunnel" though. Some clubs are taking 
over foe role of nurturing the young 
cricketers, but be notes that “many 
other dubs turn their heads away.” The 
problem he sees, even where clubs do 
help, is that their own facilities are poor, 
“it takes a certain dedication from clubs 
and from a 1 3-year-old lad who goes to 
them. The nets are often appalling. You 
can’t bat on them." 

Mr Atkinson is aware that cricket’s 
decline is aggravated by a trend among 
State teachers to discourage competitive 
sports. Hardly surprisingly, he says it is 
“a load of nonsense" to suggest that 
competition is bad for children. “It's 
part and parcel of human nature — to 
deny it is to live in cloud cuckoo land." 

B ut he also recognizes there is 
validity in foe argument that 
too much stress has been laid 
on competition in the past. 
“Fathers jumping up and 
down on the touchline or the boundary 
have got if out of balance. We need a 
restraining hand." He tries to prevent 
parents — and teachers — trying to 
“mould the children in their own 
image." or into what they would like to 
have been. 

“Cricket is just one of over 40 
sporting activities we offer, some not 
very competitive," he says. “I don’t 
regret giving them the choices. What we 
do is insist they be exposed to the 
traditional English way of life— in sport 
that means cricket, rugby, soccer and 
athletics — as well as music and religion. 

"You can see if they’re not enjoying a 
sporL At prep school* we say they must 
play a team game; what they don't enjoy 
is being in a team and seldom getting a 
bat or bowl. It’s reasonable fora certain 
forcing to occur provided you allow 
them to opt out later." 

Mr Atkinson is more than a school 
principal. As a member of the TCCB, he 


J effrey Archer, refuses 
to write a novel about 
English cricket, de- 
spite his boundless 
enthusiasm for ft. He 
fears there would not be much 
of a market fix' the book, even 
in Britain where “ban the 
people wouldn't understand 
it." Thai speaks volumes, as 
does the fact that one of his 
sons, aged 14, has spurned 
cricket tor golf and his other 
son prefers running. 

As an ardent Thatdicxite, he 
is concerned at poor govern- 
ment in cricket, especially foe 
. post of tour manager. “We 
need a strong man, properly 
paid and given lots or power. 
Ray Illingworth might have 
been our man." ' 

The rulers of cricket do not 
ED him with confidence: 
"They are very charming, 
pleasant people who have not 
quite got into the professional 
world." 

Stress should be laid on foe 
captain’s leadership skills 
rather than his batting and 
bowling ability. He suggests 
that Peter Roebuck or Mark 
Nicholas would make good 
England captains. 

This is bnt tinkering be 
admits. England's rulers face a 
lade of drive stemming from 
the good life. He recalls driv- 
ing from the Barbados Oval 
three years ago and coming 
across a boy bonding a stone 
fast at another child using a 
stump as a bat. “I was 
thinking as he smacked that 
stone all over, in 10 years 
they’ll be destroying ns at 
Taunton and Lord's.’ No West 
Indian, he says, would ever 
turn down a tour as Gooch has 
done. 

Archer was due to speak last 
night at Jod Garner’s benefit 
dinner and, as a Somerset 
fanatic, supporting them when 
they were last for many years, 
ho plans to plead with Botham 
to stay on. Though he hates 
admitting defeat in any 
sphere, he confesses that in

‘Media to 
blame’ 

Robin Askwith arranges his 
overseas acting assignments 
wherever possible to coincide 
with cricket tours. He has just 
returned from a “Run for 
Your Wife" tour of New 


Zealand — arranged in foe 
erroneous belief that England 
were touring there. 

Ah weD, the idea was a good 
one. At least David Gower, his 
great friend, saw him perform 
recently. The former England 
raptflin visited foe show five 
times in London’s West End. 

The two men swapped tick- 
ets for their respective perfor- 
mances: at Lord's, Askwith 
delights in cheering and 
stamping to the chagrin of the 
men m the MCC ties. 

“They should select new 
selectors," Askwith says, bit- 
. ter at the dropping of Gower 
as captain. He believes the 
happy-go-lucky Gower ap- 
proach produces better cricket 
than foe dAur attitude he 
thinks is now in force. 

He blames the media fix 1 
much of cricket’s ills. “The 
media got rid of David, they 
put the selectors in a corner, u 
anyone plays badly they de- 
mand he gets dropped. 1 sit 
with the players’ wives as they 
are biting their fingernails of£ 
there’s so much pressure on 
their men to perform." 

He also blames the Press far 
reporting “what the players 
smoke or who they go to bed 
with." He believes only what 
happens on the field should be 
printed. _

or India of old we’d have given them a

relative to the rise of cricket elsewhere." 

At the heart of England*); cricket 
problem lies the society’s material 
success, he believes. “We have it easy in 
England. We are not producing hungry 
enough people.” Even the financially 
secure Australians, New Zealanders and 
South Africans have an incentive to 
succeed in cricket as “an easy way to get 
abroad, especially to Europe." English 
players lack the motivation to tour. 

Though he says overseas players learn 
from playing county cricket here - and 
that helps them win Test matches — Mr 
Atkinson is not sure the present 
restrictions on them are justified. 

“There is a bit of me that says we 
should allow two, not one, overseas 
players a side. If a young English player 
is good enough there are nine other 
places. Against that it is possible foe 
overseas stars have the lion’s share of 
the cricket Great players lend to 
dominate the crease and do a lot of 
bowling." 

As Somerset’s president Mr Atkinson

He has tried to maintain a silence on the 
controversy so that he can act neutrally 
at the crisis gathering, “There is bound 
to be bitterness and recrimination either

her husband should be 
England’s captain: “Only a 
well-educated man, helped by 
some colonial arrogance, can 
hold his own against the snobs

Her criticisms continue on a 
broader front “The selectors 
have no strategy. They axe

She urged the' admin-

A winter of content for 
Shamrock as they 
prepare for the sales 


From Sturt Jones, Football Correspondent, Dnbfin 


Shamrock Rovers have not 
yet finished counting their 
profits from the first 1% of 
their European Cup tie against 
Celtic on Wednesday evening. 
Their gate receipts, collected 
from their biggest crowd for 
more than two decades, 
amounts to a tidy sum, but a 
larger financial gain could yet 
lie ahead in either the autumn 
or the winter sales. 

The main hem in their shop 
window is Liam O'Brien, a 21- 
year-old and the star of the 
show at Glenmalure Park in 
spite of their 1-0 defeat The 
list of his admirers included 
David Hay, Celtic’s manager, 
who admitted that he was “the 
best player by far on the 
pilch”. 

Tall, slim and dark-haired, 
O'Brien glides rather than 
sprints and he is deceptively 
quick, as several Scottish 
international defenders 
discovered to their embarrass- 
ment His shooting power is 
reputed to be explosive, as 
though he has tucked sticks of 
gelignite into his boots, but his 
touch is otherwise as delicate 
as a fluttering feather. 

Yet there is a flaw in 
O'Brien's game which unfolds 
in midfield. His work rate is 
low, ,loo low at least for the 
likes' of" Sheffield Wednesday, 
Watford and Wimbledon. He 
is a creative artist, sadly a 
rapidly diminishing figure m 
the modem era, rather than a. 
destructive force. 

His talent deserves to be 
displayed on a bigger stage 
than Shamrock's. For three 
years since he moved from 
Bohemians, the presence of 
foreign scouts fuelled rumours 
that he was about to be bought 
by a more glamorous club. But 
there have been no firm offers, 
so feral least Louis Kilcoyne, 
Shamrock's secretary, believes 
that if O'Brien is sold, the 
transfer figure would involve 
six figures and thus set a new 
club record. 

The fee represents a fortune 
for the dub that had to spend 
£30,000 to ensure the safety of 


rime theinspectors came bade, 
we bad to put a few more nuts 
and bolts on our scaffolding to 
satisfy them.” 

The crowd, some of them 
hanging perilously from the 
roof of the tiny shed of a stand 
and from the floodlight py- 
lons, paid £90,000. O’Bnen, 
therefore, is valued more 
highly than Shamrock's rich- 
est evening. 

O'Brien himself is “praying 
that the ideal opportunity 
comes along”, though be has 
no particular destiny in mind.

Steve Hodge, the England 
midfield player, is set to return 
to die Aston VUJfca side against 
Norwich Gty tomorrow but 
only temporarily (CZfre White 
writes). Ron Wylie, the acting 
manager, said that Hodge was 
stzD a Vffla player and mnld 
therefore be considered for 
selection. Hodge, who was 
placed on the transfer list 
shortly before die dismissal of 
Graham Turner as manager, 
said yesterday: “Nothing has 
changed. 1 still believe it would 
be in the best interests of 
everyone if I moved.” 

Allan Evans, the Villa de- 
fender, is stm negotiating 
terms with Southampton after 
rejecting their original offer. 
The crabs have agreed a 
£90,060 transfer fee. Evans is

Discipline 
jury at

Ferguson looks

Coventry City have appointed 
■ players’ jury of “six just men” 
to administer fines for breaches 
of dab discipline (Dennis Shaw 
writes). Afetof offences rang- 
ing from being fate for training 
to being sent off have been listed 

Each carries its own penalty 
on a percentage of salary bams' 
and offenders will have the 
appropriate sun automatically 
levied from their salary. “Any- 
one being sent off for a third 
time need not bother to pick ap 
his month's pay chegoe,” Micky 
Adams, the committee chair- 
ana, said. His cblleagoes are 
Brian Klriine, Cyrille Regis, 
TYevor Peake, Greg Downs and 
Steve Ogrizovic. 

Dissent against the referee is 
one of the prime offences, bat 
there is aaappeah procedure if a 
convicted player feels he has 
been anjastly treated. “It is part 
of teaching players to take a 
responsible attitude,” John 
Sillett, who mas all playing 
affairs, said.

Aberdeen's slender 2-1 lead 
over Sion should be enough to 
put them through to the second 
round of the European Cup 
Winners' Cup. That was the 
optimistic forecast yesterday of 
Alex Ferguson, the ma n age r , 
who went further in a role as 
harbinger of joy to slightly 
disgruntled supporters when he 
added: “I believe we can do wdl 
in the competition.” 

Considering that Aberdeen 
required a fortunate penalty to 
find the equalizer after a dread- 
ful first half and that the 
competent Swiss side showed 
real menace, it may be asked 
whether the volatile Ferguson is 
going over the top. 

“Not at all,” Ferguson says. 
He bases his confidence on the 
hope that when the second is 
played in a fortnight's time his 
injury-hit dub will be strength- 
ened by the return of several 
regulars and that the second half 
revival at Pinodrie revealed the 
famous battling spirit had been 
regained at last. 

In contrast. Rangers are as 


Now Rangers know that in 
Graeme Souness they have a 
perfectionist the manager did 
not allow the scoreli ne to 
brighten his view. He snapped: 
“I was disappointed by our 
sloppy performance. Had the 
Finns not had a player sent off, 
they co Old have caused us 
problems.” 

if however, Souness was 
unhappy with his team, the 
crowd of nearly 20,000 was not, 
cheering Fleck, the scorer of 
three goals, and the fascinating 
display of Cooper. 

It turned out to be a fair night 
for the Scottish dubs in Europe 
as Dundee United have p lac e d 
themselves on the UEFA Cup 
borderline after a 1-0 defeat by 
Lens in France. But United were 
without Ferguson and Redfond, 
their principal attackers, and 
their vast European experience 


may see them through. 

Heart of Midlothian, on the 
other hand, will have to produce 
<me of tii err best displays in 
Czechoslovakia if they are to 
remain in the competition. Al- 
though they beat D-nlda Prague

Hobbins sets out to bridge the gap 


Non-League football by Paul Newman 


Graham Hobbins. the man- 
ager of Welling United, is 
planning to enter the transfer 
market in an attempt to halt his 
side's dismal start to their first 
season in the GM Vauxhall 
Conference. 

“The players who won the 
Southern League for us last 
season have had the chance to 
prove themselves.” Hobbins 
said. “The standard in the 


between them — inducting one 
each over Welling — in 17 
matches. 

Hobbins said: “I w atche d 
Dartford play Crawley in a top- 
of-thc- table Southern League 
match last week and the follow- 


ing night we played Enfield. The 
difference in standards between 
the two games was enormous. 
There are few players who could 
comfortably step out of the 
Southern League straight- into 
the Conference. 


Conference has proved higher 
than one or two of them 


than one or two of them 
probably expected and now is 
the time to strengthen and 
increase our squad.” 


“We haven't played badly this 
season but we've been unable to 
find weaknesses in opposing 
teams in the same way that we 
were able to in the Southern 
League. Conference teams tend 
to have more know-how and to 
be physically stronger.” 

Hobbins has quickly realized 
that his 15-man squad is too 
small by at least two players for 
Conference demands. Injuries 
to two defender. Nigpl Ransom 
and Raul Sawyer, and the trans- 
fer of David Smith to GDling- 
ham have tested Welling s 
resources to the limit. 

Yet despite the disappointing 
start. Hobbins has no regrets 
about taking Welting into the 


Writing's experience has 
underlined how the gap between 
the Conference and its three 
“feeder” leagues has steadily 
widened in recent years. Last 
season the Kent dub won the 
Southern League by 23 points; 
this season, with largely the 
same team, they have taken only 
two points from «ght Con- 
ference matches and are firmly 
rooted to the bottom of the 
table. 

The two other promoted 
dubs, Gateshead and Sutton 
United, have had similar prob- 
lems. with only three wins 


Conference. Home at t enda n ces 
average nearly 800. compared 
with 400 at the same sage last 
season, and the dnb have been 
highly impressed with the 
league's organization. 

“Everything is going writ — 
apart from die results.” he said. 

• Barnet have negotiated a 
thrce-ycarspoosoxship deal with 
Godwins Plumbing Supplies, of 
north London, worth £40,000 
over the next three years. It is 
believed to be the largest 
sponsorship of its land outside

now 77, has just returned to . 
Britain. In an interview 
conducted with the writer (and 
Ambler devotee) James 
Fenton, he reflects charmingly on 
his life and work, adamant 
that with so much fear in the 
worid the thriller form can 
never cSe, and facing up finally to 
the question of whether 
thriller writing can be classified 
as art. Most of us would say 
that in Ambler's case there is no 
need to ask.

FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 19 1986

Tide has turned 
in our favour, 
Botham claims 


THE^afernMEs 


SPORT 


Tint P«bHAcdi» 1785 


Ian Botham yesterday 
claimed victory was in sight in 
his county battle, maintaining 
that there had been a massive 
swing by Somerset’s members 
towards reinstating his sacked 
colleagues, Yiv Richards and 
Joel Garner. 

He tolda lunch of the Sports 
Writers’ Association:“Two 
weeks ago it was 70/30 in 
favour of the committee's 
decision. Now it*s 70/30 the 
other way round. There will be 
a lot of committee men run- 
ning for cover when the 
emergency meeting comes up. 
They won't be jumping up and 
down then.” 

The England all rounder, in 
ebullient mood, suggested be 
might prefer to play in Austra- 
lia rather than join another 
English county should he fail 
to reverse the club's decision 
over next year's contractual 
arrangement He would enjoy 
“a couple of years” in Austra- 
lia. because ofhis “love for the 
country, its climate, its way of 
life, and the way they play 
their cricket.” 

Another option he was 
considering was to join an 
English county with a young 
side that bad prospects of 
“three or four years of 
success.” In a rebuff to his 
former manager. Tim Hud- 
son, who is seeking control of 
Lancashire, Botham 
said:“Maybe Hudson should 
realize money can't buy 


By Paul Martin 

everything,” adding amid 
laughter “it would take a lot 
more than 50 grand.” 

He discounted with “a 
pinch of Salt” reports that Viv 
Richards had agreed with 
Hudson's plans. All three were 
keen to continue playing for 
Somerset but not under die 
present “bad management.” 

It was “disgusting” he said, 
to blame the star players for 
Somerset's lack of success in 
the past two years. He criti- 
cized the county for foiling to

Boatman Hawkes in lead 


By Mitchell Platts 

The South African golfer, 
Jeff Hawkes, yesterday earned 
a share of the Lawrence Bailey 
Tournament Players 
Championship first round 
lead at The Belfry then began 
preparing to lock his clubs 
away for eight months. 

Hawkes. who has been bat- 
tling with limited success on 
the European tour for ten 
years, has no intention of 
playing again after the end of 
the championship until the 
PGA Championship at Went- 
worth next May. 

He expIameth*Tve not 
played on my own circuit for 
two years because in the 
summer at home my time is 
consumed with promoting a 
wing-sailer boat for single- 
handed idling 

“When my father retired in 
1 984 1 tried to make hjm a rich 
man by getting him to invest 
into the boating business but it 
turned out to be a disaster and 
l made him a pauper instead. 

“It was up to me to put 
things right so I worked on a 
new design of craft which is 
now selling well at home and 
in Europe. We are now claw- 
ing our way back from an 
original deficit of more than 
£100,000.”

RUGBY UNION 

Zimbabwe 
may pull 
out of cup 

By Chris Than 

Zimbabwe, the oaly African 
country to have been invited to 
the 1987 Rushy World Cop, 
may boycott me competition. 

According to reliable 
sosrees in Zimbabwe the gov- 
ernment is considering 
preventing the team taking 
part unless the New Zealand 
Rugby Union ban their Cava- 
liers who Cowed Sooth Africa 
eariy this year. 

Zimbabwe have consistently 
denied their athletes per- 
mission to (day against foreign 
s portsmen known to have 
played or visited Sooth Africa. 

Foreign rugby tears to Zim- 
babwe have dwindled for fear 
of government intarention. 
Several foreign team s have 
been banned from travelling to 
Zimbabwe or have been forced 
to caned trips. E ng land B 
cricketers wore among the last 
to suffer. 

It is said that in order to 
the effect of their 
boycott Zimbabwe anthorities 
will not announce their de- 
rision until tiie team is ready 

“fie Zimbabwe Rugby 
Union have, as part of their 
World Cap preparations, ap- 
pointed lan Robertson, the 
former Springbok, as national 
coach, and pntGofin Osborne, 
the former Moseley wins, in 
charge of the mider-19 side. 

if Zimbabwe do drop oat 
any of the nations on the 
replacement list, Spain, West- 
ern Samoa, South Korea and 
even the Soviet Union, would 
be kero to step m. The 
organizing committee may 
have learnt from the problems 
of the Co mmon wealth Games 
and may requfie firm pledges 
from the invited nations, under 
written by governments, that 
they would participate. 


hdp England through a 
punishing schedule. He 
acknowledged there bad been 
“some very good selections." 

He believed England's poor 
performances this year had’ 
been due to “shell shock” 
from the battering in the West 
Indies, and the Australian tour 
would reveal a revitalized 
squad. 

In the gaze of his lawyer's 
beady eye, Botham contented, 
himself with a relatively mild 
onslaught against cricket's rul- 
ers, suggesting that “younger 
blood” was needed in the 
game’s administration. He 
took issue with them for 
banning him and other pla yers 
from writing Press articles 
during the Australian tour. 

He described this pursuit as 
“one of the perks of the job” 
and asked who would pay the 
cricketers alter their retire- 
ment He denied players' col- 
umns could cause friction.

SPORT IN BRIEF 


A zephyr ruffles the muddy 

waters of the Imjro 
catching die sunlight dude 
and pheasant ciy overhead. A 
gentle peace, an autumnal 
tranquility, lies on the nee 
fields and tiie rolling hills. It is 
a peace as fragile as a 
pheasant’s egg. 

Along tbe northern side ot 
the fbur-kilom etre-wide de- 
militarized zone which sepa- 
rates North and South Korea 
is assembled die latest 
permanent peace-time 
armoured force in the history 
of man. Here at P anm u njoin, 
die little forming village on the 
38th parallel, whidi was oblit- 
erated 35 years ago and is now 
a joint security area, the 
volatile symbol off armistice, it 
is difficult if not impossible to 
believe in any land of Olym- 
pic fraternization between 
communist North and repub- 
lican South two years hence. 

Today. Juan Antonio 
Samaranch, the president of 
the International Olympic 
Committee (IOC), was to have 
. been a visitor to tbe scene of 
tbe little Bridge of No Return, 
the one fonom remaining 
road link on Highway 1, where 
prisoners of war were ex- 
changed in 1953 and across 
which, it is supposed, the 
Olympic family would pass if 
North Korea agree to accept 
the offer of the IOC and South 
Korea to stage two sports and 
part of two others in the North 
as a gesture of sporting unity. 

Altruism might 
| . have waned 

Wisely, Samaranch decided 
g gamst an appointment to 
crime . within a stride ofNorth 
Korean territory while still 
standing provocatively on 
South fCorean smL Had he 
visited the invasion tunnel — 
driven through granite 70 
metres under the de- 
militarized zone, discovered 
by the South in 1978 and the 
third such secret tunnel to 
make a mockery of the Ar- 
mistice, capable of carrying 

30.000 aimed troops an hour 
and emerging a mere 44 
kilometres from Seoul — 
•Samaranch’s altruism might 
ifaave waned. ' 

• His eyes’ would have wid- 
ened, txm, at the sensitivity in 
this di ploma tic no man’s land, 
; a security Disney World 
'Where men and their ma- 
chines of surveillance and 
destruction never sleep, eye- 
ing each other minute by 
minute, hour by hour across a 
harmless kwkfog line of white 
posts which signify the mili- 
tary demarcation fine. It is 
high noon at Panmunjom, and 
h has been every second of 
every day since 1953. 

- Can sport seriously pene- 
trate this anra of impending 
war, you must ask yourself? 
When the provocative sen- 
sitivity of North Korean 
guards has resulted in 20 
minor, temporary armed con- 
flicts across the wafer line of 
the joint security area over the 
last 20 years, with the deaths 
of L5 United Nations guards 
and 52 North Koreans, it 
seems unlikely that the North 
can view with equanimity a 
sodden flood of sporting 
competitors and tourists down 
this tiny rural trade. 

The two projected sports to 
be staged m Pyongyang are 
table rennis and aidiery, tbe 
partial sprats cycling and foot- 
ball- It is unimaginable that, 
supposing the draw for foot- 
ball should throw together 
Italy and West Germany for a 
match in Pyongyang, that 
North Korean security could 
contemplate not only a horde 
of photographers and tele- 
vision camera crews but 

15.000 western European 



supporters, pouring through 
the Berlin-type wall mined a 
and wired, on the northern ' 
side of the demilitarized zone, 
pnH continuing on the 50-mile 
journey to Pyongyang through 
countryside a bristling with 
military divisions. 

That is tbe only, the normal 
condition on which the IOC 
would agree to a shared 
Games: the free flow of 
personnel between Seoul and 
Pyongyang. From what I have 
seen here, tbe idea is out of the 
question. Tbe only possible 
passage of Olympic compet- 
itors/ Press and spectators 
would be by an airlift between 
tbe capitals. . . 3 

Yu Sun Kim. the North 
Korean IOC member, has 
been assuring his colleagues 
that Pyongyang is already in 
tbe process of building a new 
150,000-seat stadium. Roy 
Evans, the Welsh president of 
the International Table Tea- 
ms Federation, who is in Seoul 
for meetings, points out that 
table tennis has had notable 
success with previous inter- 
national events in Pyongyang. 

The cynical view, however, 
must be that North Korea is 
protracting the negotiations 
with the IOC and the South * 
entirely to exploit sporting - 
goodwill and keep North Ko- 
rea prominent in the public 
eye when in fact they have no 
legitimate claim to any share 
of the Olympics. When it 
comes to a final decision, I 
believe the North will with- 
draw from the negotiations on 
unspecified grounds that the 
conditions are unacceptable. 

Negotiations for 
stored events 

Samaranch said 

yesterdaythat before a fourth 
joint meeting of tbe two 
Koreas is arranged in Lau- 
sanne, the North must first ■ 
give positive acceptance of the w 
existing proposal put to them 
this summer. Their reply at 
present is equivocaL 

Samaranch's skill has been 
in conducting negotiations for 
shared events winch leave the 
ball wholly in the North’s 
court. At both the meeting of 
sports ministers of non- 
aligned nations in Pyongyang 
in July and then of non- 
aligned prime ministers in 
Harare, the suggestion of 
joint-hosting of the Games 
was rightly rejected. Even 
Marat Gramov, the Soviet * 
minister of sport, is said to 
have advised an IOC member 
that Noth Korea should be 
offered no more than one 
sport 

_The larks sing in Panmim- 
jom. in the heart of a de- 
militarized zone which has 
ironically become a wildlife 
sanctuary, saviour of .the 
threatened Manchurian mow 
crane. But human hearts flut- 
ter. “When the sun goes

poral said to me, gazing out at

maments around Mount Jin 
Bong to the north, “this is tbe

TENNIS 


Just like old times as 
McEnroe wins easily 

From Richard Evans, Los Angeles 


John McEnroe, always his 
own severest critic, could not 
find much to complain about 
after his performance in the 
fust round of the Volvo 
Tournament at the UCLA 
Tennis Centre. 

Bearing a strong resem- 
blance to the man who was 
once the undisputed number 
one player in the world, 
’McEnroe began -the second 
phase of his chequered come- 
back with a 6-1, 6-1 defeat of : 
Kelly Jones, a former college 
star from Pepperdine Univer- 
sity. 

McEnroe admitted he had 
never seen Jones play before. 
“But my brother Stride 
played doubles with him at the 
US Open," McEnroe said at 
his press , conference. He then 
added. a deadpan bu- 
moun- < ^6 ; sgave me a few 

In feet, McEnroe’s serve 
was working well enough on 
the medium-fast, cement 
. court for him toget by without 
any need of advice. Playing 
under lights on a balmy.: 
- Californian evening, McEnrot 
. .moved easily through his fitfl 
^repertoire of strokes to die' 


satisfaction of the near capac- 
ity 7,000 crowd who revelled 
in his artistry. 

Just to keep the adrenalin 
flowing, McEnroe even 
smashed his racket on the 
ground when he dropped 
serve in the second set. The 
crowd roared with glee and the 
umpire gave him a perfunc- 
tory warning for racket abuse. 
It seemed quite like old times. 

, Afterwards McEnroe admit- 
ted he had lowered his'sights 
following the disappointing 
losses he had suffered in 
August, “l put too much 
pressure on myself alien I Aral 
came back. Now I am just 
trying to play good tennis and 
I will be satisfied if I mana ge 
to win a tournament before 
the end of the year” he said. 

Pat Gash, another man on 
the comeback trail was alto in 
good form. Playing a second 
round .match, the young 
Australian served anti vol- 
leyed his way past Todd

The Japanese government 
has cleaned the way for British 
Caledonian to begin servicing 
the London-Tokyo route. 

And the Government is 
“within striking distance” of 
an agreement with the Soviet 
Union for overflight rights for 
the airline, according to Mr 
Michael Spicer, Under-Sec- 
retary of State at the Ministry 
of Transport. 

British Caledonian hopes to 
' start its new Tokyo service in 
the spring. 

' Mr Spicer has been in Japan 
tying up the final details of the 
agreement with the govern- 
ment and talking with All 
Nippon Airways about the 
possibility of a second Japa- 
nese carrier on the route. 

He again pressed the Japa-

notably the British Aerospace 
146 short-haul airliner, which, 
has “extremely good' 
prospects”, alter successes in- 
the American and Chinese 
markets.

Market nerves 


send gold to 
three-year high 

By David Smith, Economics Correspondent 



The gold price rose by more 
than $1Q an ounce to its 
highest level for more than 
three years yesterday, amid 
continuing nervousness in 
financial markets. 

The pound and the dollar 
both recovered after Thurs- 
day's sharp losses, but dealers 
sard that this mainly reflected 
pre-weekend covering by trad- 
ers, and the underlying tone 
remained weak. 

Gold fulfilled its traditional 
role as barometer of tension in 
the financial markets. At the 
afternoon fix in London, it 
was $430 an ounce, a rise of 
jS 10.25 on the previous closing 
(level, and the highest London 
fix since July 1982. 

In trading, gold reached 
$435 an ounce. The rise was 
explained by uncertainties in 
stock and bond markets 
around the world, as well as 
worries over the dollar and a 
possible rekindling of in- 
flation. 

Gold coins rose in line with 
the bullion price. Krugerrands 
rose by more than £5 to £290- 
£291.50. 

The pound and the dollar 
both recovered ground yes- 
terday, after the sharp mils 
earlier in the week. The ster- 
ling index, which had closed at 


a record low of 69.4 on 
Thursday, rose by 0.5 to end at 
69.9 yesterday. 

Against the mark, the 
pound rose by more than a 
pfennig to DM2.941S. It also 
gained -half a cent against the 
generally firmer dollar, dosing 
at $1.4765. 

The mark, which has been 
pushed higher this week on 
confirmation of the reluctance- 
on the part of the German 

Crisis looming on the 
gilt-edged market 
Kenneth Fleet 23 

authorities to cut interest 
rates, paused for breath. 

The dollar, sent down on 
Wednesday and Thursday by 
comments from the US Trea- 
sury Secretary, Mr James 
Baker, threatening to drive the 
dollar lower if the Germans do 
not relent, also steadied. 

Against the mark, the dollar 
edged up to DM1.9970, from 
DM1.9905 overnight 

There is some evidence that 
the focus of the foreign ex- 
change markets may be 
switching back towards the, 
yen. Yesterday, the dollar fell 
to 152.35 against the yen, 
from 153.55, the yen having 


Schraders offshoot 
sold for £99m 

By Richard Thomson, Banking Correspondent 


J Henry Schroder Wagg, the 
merchant bank, took a further 
step yesterday towards 
concentrating its operations in 
wholesale banking and securi- 
ties business, with the sale of 
its life assurance and related 
unit trust business for £99 
million. 

The subsidiary, Schroder 
Financial Management lim- 
ited. is being purchased by 
National Mutual Life Associ- 
ation of Australia as part of a 
programme of expansion out- 
side Australia. 

SFML. the unit-linked life 
company, which was estab- 
lished in the early 1970s, 
appeared in Schroders' 1985 
accounts with a capital value 
of £22 million. 

The company contributed 
£700.000 in operating earn- 
ings to the group's total profit 
last year. 

Mr George Mallinckrodt, 
chairman of Schraders, said 
“Undoubtedly there is a very 
1 substantial premium involved 
in the sale price. A large 
proportion is goodwill It is a 
good price in relation to other 
similar transactions.” He 
added that the valuation of 
SFML in last year's accounts 
was very conservative. 


Mr Parti ck Merer of Orion 
Royal Bank, which is advising 
National Mutual in the deal, 
said that the £99 million was 
“a fair price for a good 
business with a good name. 
The company will form an 
important part ofNM’s opera- 
tions in the UK." 

The sale leaves Schroder 
with no retail businesses. Mr 
Mallinclcrodl said that' the 
bank did not need all the 
money from the sale al present 
but that it was convenient to 
enter big bang with an extra 
cushion of capitaL 

Schroder has carried out a 
programme of restructuring 
its business, including the sale 
of its holding in a US commer- 
cial bank* 

Schroders has received a 
large number of offers for 
SFML over the last few years. 
Mr Mallinckrodt said that the 




siaghe of development 
which Schroders did not want 
to be involved. 

He said: “It is ready for 
rapid expansion but we have 
no international insurance in- 
terests. Ownership by an 
insurance company is appro- 
priate for SFML at this point.” 


earlier recorded a new high of 
151.70. 

The pound was helped try 
the view that the sharp fall this 
week may have been over- 
done, as well as by a further 
hardening of money market 
interest rates in London. 
Rates rose sharply early yes- 
terday on fears of higher base 
rates. 

' They later eased back but* 
the three-month interbank 
rate still closed a quarter of a 
point higher at itPis-Sia per 
cent. 

This week's mark rise has 
created pressure within the 
European Monetary System. 
The nuance ministers of the 
EEC are meeting informally 
this weekend at Glen eagles. 
The meeting, hosted by the 
Chancellor, Mr Nigel Lawson, 
is a normal pre-IMF 
gathering. 

It will however, focus on 
the latest currency turbulence: 

Shares in London and New 
York lost some ground yes- 
terday. The FT 30-share index 
fell by I0.S points to 1,269.1. 
In New York, just before the. 
“Triple Witching Hour” 
simultaneous expiry of stock 
options and futures, the Dow 
Jones industrial average was 
down six points at 1768. ' 


GDP slows 
to 0.2% 
growth 

Britain's gross domestic 
product rose by a modest 0.2 
per cent in the second quarter 
and the economy expanded by 
just 1.4 per cent compared 
with last year. 

However, the latest figures 
are encouraging on infla- 
tionary trends. In the second 
quarter, the GDP deflator— a 
measure of overall inflation in 
the economy — recorded an 
almost unprecedented fen of 
0.8 per cent, at factor cost 

Second quarter growth, as 
measured by the average of 
income, expenditure and out- 
put measures of GDP, was 
pulled down by a 0.2 percent 
tan in the expenditure mea- 
sure, due to a second quart ej 
(hop in investment Con- 
sumer spending was up 1.8 per 
cenK 

The output measure of 
GDP rose 0.5 per cent in the 
second quarter to 2 per cent 
above its second quarter 1985 
leveL Services were very 
strong, recording an increase 
in output of 1.2 per cent 

Income GDProse by 0.2 per 
cent to 0.7 per cent higher than 
the corresponding period of 
1985. Company profits suf- 
fered from declining North sea 
profits, failing 12 per cent in 
the second quarter.

Hard bargaining at Gatt talks 


From Bailey Morris, Punta del Este, Uruguay 


World trade ministers 
worked around the clock yes- 
terday to break a procedural 
log-jam that threatened to 
delay the launch df a new 
global trade round after a week 
of negotiations. 

Although there was broad 
agreement that progress had 
been made on the key issues of 
agriculture and services, min- 
isters were still engaged in 
hard bargaining over the 
wording of the communique 
and the procedures to be 
followed by member nations of 
the General Agreement on 
Tariffs and Trade. 

Attempts were made, for 
example, to include the Soviet 


Union in the new trade round 
under a motion from Czecho- 
slovakia, but the United States 
and Enropean nations 
objected. 

In order to bring developing 
nations, led by India and 
Brazil into the process, min- 
isters agreed to consider other 
means of holding multilateral 
talks on services, through a 
two-track negotiating process, 
which would eventually come 
onder the Gatt umbrella. 

The marathon *»liw were 
the result of a search for 
consensus among developed 
and developing countries, 
which ministers described as 
crucial 


There is general agreement 
among the 92 Gatt member 
nations that a new ronnd will 
be launched. 

However, the United States 
remained adamant that its 
four key issues, agriculture, 
services, investment and 
intellectual property rights, 
must be included in the talks 
under the auspices of Gatt. 

Mr Clayton Yentter, the US 
trade representative, said he 
would leave today with or 
without an agreement. 

Enropean officials were 
insistent on the form of words 
intended to balance the bene- 
fits in global trade. At the 
same time, after achieving a

Profits slump at Enterprise 

n.. ** 


Enterprise Oil yesterday an- 
nounced it was maintaining 
its interim dividend — so far 
the only independent oil com- 
pany to do so — despite a 
slump in pretax profits. 

The company blamed the 
profits fell, from £61.7 million 
in the first half of last yrar to 
just above break-even point at 
£1.2 million in the 
corresponding period this 
year, on the seventy of the mil 
in the ofl prices from £21 a 
barrel in 1985 to an average 
£11 a barrel in ihe first half of 
1986. 

The inrerim dividend will 
be maintained at 3.5p. 

The group's cash position. 


By Carol Ferguson 
in contrast, remained strong. 

Net liquid resources in- 
creased by £1 1-2 million, due 
to cutbacks in exploration 
spending, field development 
and operating costs and cor- 
porate overheads. 

And the exploration budget 
has been cut to half the 
original estimation. 

The company said that 
some cash outflow must be 
expected in the second halt 
given the substantial corpora- 
tion lax payment to be made 
in October due to last year’s 
much higher profits. 

Twenty-three exploration 1 
and appraisal wells were com- 
pleted in the first half; yielding 


five new hydrocarbon 
discoveries. 

Early developments are 
anticipated on four, of 
Enterprise’s projects. 

The Ravenspurn North gas 
field depends on obtaining a 
suitable contract from Ibe 
British Gas Corporation. 

There are some small oil 
accumulations near Beryl 
which conld be booked up to 
the main platform for produc- 
tion in 1988. 

And, the commercial viabil- 
ity of the Miller oil field 
depends on what view is taken 
of the oil price in the 1990s by 
the consortium members

Smith & Nephew, the medi- 
cal and healthcare products 
company which manufactures 
Nivea and Elastoplast, is mak- 
ing its largest ever acquisition 
with the - $283.9 million 
(£1917 million) purchase of 
Richards Medical Company 
based in Memphis, Tennessee. 

Richards makes surgical im- 
plants, equipment and in- 
struments for the orthopaedic 
market and is the third largest 
company in the United Stales 
specializing in the growing 
area of arthroscopy, the repair 
of bone and cartilage through 
skin puncture. 

It made pretax profits in 
1985 of$l5.2 million on sales 
of $141.4 million, compared 
with profits of $14.5 million 
and sales of $123 million in 
1984. 

The acquisition is being' 
financed by a conditional 
vendor placing to institutions 
of 1 10.6 million new shares at 
a lightly priced !15p to raise 
£127.1 million. The remaining

The Land Registry is reduc- 
ing its fees for processing 
registered land transactions 
from October I. Thus, for 87 
per cent of the population in 
England and Wales the cost of 
conveyancing will be cheaper

£70,000 conveyance. 

Last year, the Registry re- 
corded a surplus of more than , 
£20 million. It estimates a 
surplus of some £16 million 
for the coming year, due to 
house price inflation 
More than half the land in 
England and Wales is either 
already registered or subject to 
compulsory registration.

£65.6 million is being met by 
borrowing. 

The vendor placing has a 
100 per cent clawback option 
to enable ordinary sharehold- 
ers to apply For upto two new 
shares for every 15 held. 

Recent large vendor 
placings, notably those by Dee 
Corporation and Boots, have 
attracted institutional pres- 
sure to add a clawback facility. 

Smith's chief executive, Mr 
Eric Kinder, said the company 
wanted to give small 
shareholders the opportunity 
to participate in the issue and 
there was no question of 
institutional pressure dictat- 
ing terms. 

A vendor placing was cho- 
sen instead of a rights issue 
because of the need for speed 
and confidentiality. 
CooperVision Inc, of Paolo 
Alto, California, which is sell- 
ing Richards, needed a quick 
sale to relieve its stretched 
balance sheet 

Mr Kinder said there would 
be very little overlap between 


the two businesses, but they 
would fit beautifully side by 
side. He said the price paid 
was very satisfactory for a 
strategically ideal business. 

The exit price/earnings ra- 
tio has been estimated by 
stockbroking analysts at be- 
tween 25 and 30. 

Although it seems expen- 
sive, analysts have pointed 
out that Richards is in a very 
high-tech part of the medical 
equipment business. 

Health services are keen on 
Richards' products because 
they reduce hospital stays and 
cm healthcare costs. 

The acquisition is not ex- 
pected to dent Smith's strong 
growth record. 

• Although there could be 
minimal dilution of earnings 
in 1987, Richards is expected 
to enhance earnings growth 
from 1988. 

The new shares will add 
13.3 per cent to Smith's 
existing equity.

common position on agri- 
culture, with a surprising lack 
of dissention, EEC ministers 
were determined to fight at- 
tempts by Australia and the 
United States to strengthen 
the terms on subsidies. 

The EEC is opposed to an 
agreement which would say 
that there must be “the phased 
reduction within an agreed 
time frame” of subsidies. 

Developing countries were 
equally insistent that the 
industrialized nations should 
not dominate the negotiating

‘More job 
mobility 
needed’ 

Lord Young of Graffham. 
the Employment Minister, 
said yesterday there should be 
greater differentials in pay 
across the country to 
encourage job mobility. 

The practice of negotiating 
wage rises nationally has 
meant there are now hardly 
any differences in pay for 
skills in different areas. 

“And yet there should be, 
because there is an obvious 
differential in housing and 
opportunity costs between the 
North and the South," he said. 

The Government had to 
look at education in different 
areas of the country and at the 
deregulation of rents to enable 
jjeople to rent accommoda- 
tion in areas where work was 
available but properly prices 
were very high, he said. 

Lord Young said job mobil- 
ity had probably declined over 
the past 15-20 years and the 
increased number of working 
women made it more difficult 
for families to move.

The realignment of stock- 
broking firms in the provinces 
received a boost from an 
unusual quarter yesterday 
when J T Parrish, a folly 
quoted shell company, an- 
nounced it was baying two 
I firms for £1.23 mfllion. 

The deal, which follows the 
formation of two regional bro- 
kerage groups earlier this 
year, is the prelude to Parrish 
developing a regional network 
of private client agency 
brokers. 

It is paying £9®3,000 for the 
ten-partner private client firm 
of Dnnkley Marshall The 
firm made £428,000 profits 
before tax in its last financial 
year, although .this swells to 
£777,000 if commissions 
earned by two new, but pre- 
viously nominal partners are 
included. 

Parrish is also baying E F 
Matthews.of Colchester, Es- 
sex, for £331,000. Matthews 
produced pretax profits of

£2384)00 for its five partners 
In the 59 weeks to Jane 29. 

Parrish shares were sus- 
pended at £10 Immediately 
before yesterday's announce- 
ment, which was accompanied 
by a five-forgone . scrip issue 
and a two-for-five rights issue 
at 160p which will raise £2 
million net of expenses. 

The company also an- 
nounced half-year figures, 
showing profits before tax of 
£13^500 for the six months to 
July 31 (£52,0001 

The overall effect of the 
capital restructuring and 
rights Issue will give Parrish a 
market capitalization of £9 S 
million — more than three 
times its value jnst over, a year 
ago. 

The company's business un- 
til recently comprised running, 
a Newcastle department store 
and related property interests. 

It has dose links with 
Mercantile House, the finan- 
cial services conglomerate 


which is itself expanding its 
brokerage network through its 
ownership of Alexanders 
Laing & Cnuckshank. 

Two former main board 
directors of Mercantile House 
- Mr Keith Hnghesdtm and 
Mr Peter Bainbridge - took 
their shareholding in Parrish 
to 29.8 per cent of the company 
in August last year, and they 
ann ounced their intention to 
develop it as a financial ser-

Cnncksbank are brokers to 
company, while Mer- 
cantile House has a 14.9 per * 
cent stake in Spedley Securi- 
ties. which Itself owns almost 
15 per cent of Parrish. 

Mr Hughesdon yesterday 
denied that there was any 
conflict of interest arising from 
Mercantile’s stake. “It is 
nothing other than a histone 
and trade investment We 
dc St see any conflict”

• Shares of Dee Corpora-

following a visit to the 
company by James Capet, the 
broker. Capef has reduced 
its estimate of pretax profits

brokers may also lower

underway.

A state of war exists between the 
financial super powers — West Ger- 
many and Japan, on the one hand, 
and the United Slates on the other. As 
James Baker, US Treasury Secretary, 
is telling the world — to the ill- 
concealed fury of sophisticates at the 
British Treasury and Bank of England 
— the Americans want the dollar lower 
against the marie and the yen. They 
also want the West Germans and 
Japanese to cut their interest rates 
Neither is prepared to yield, as is dear 
from heavy movements in the foreign 
exchange market. 

Sterling is caught in the cross fire, 
wilting against the major currencies 
and inspiring fears of higher UK 
interest rates at a time when foreigners 
are becoming sensitive to shifts away 
from the Government in political 

fortunes. 

. The pound is not alone in its grief: 
for related reasons prices in the gilt- 
edged market have taken a serious 
knock. So serious that the market is 
alive with stories of the huge losses 
some dealers have sustained, which 
'are true, and rumours of an impend- 
ing withdrawal from the market of 
one of the biggest firms, which so far 
have proved false. 

The name trembling on every lip is 
the American giant Merrill Lynch. 
Not true, says David Rochester; in 
fact Bill Schreyer, chairman of the 
Thundering Herd, over from New 
York, had yesterday re-affirmed 
Merrill's commitment to the gilt- 
edged market where it is one of ibe 27 
primary dealers lined up for big bang. 
The team lead by John Hutchinson 
remains in residence. 

The situation in the market is, none 
the less, a cause for real concern. In 10 
trading days between September 4 and 


September 18 the Swiss-made Lom- 
bard-Odier index registered a rise in 
the yield on government stocks from 
9.78 per cent to 10.75 per cent — a fall 
of a hundred basis points. 

In this kind of market only the wise 
and the fortunate can have escaped 
losing a great deal of money. Their 
chances of keeping losses in bounds 
have been reduced by the harsher 
price adjustments made by the job- 
bers who. m the twilight of the old 
market, are not seeing nearly as muih 
of the business as they used to do and 
are left to guess the weight and price 
significance of the big volume of 
trading taking place outside the Stock 
Exchange. 

The worst scenario is of the new 
primary dealers taking in stock in 
order to build up a dealing book ahead 
of big bang on October 27. With prices 
collapsing they dump stock, with 
inevitable losses. These losses may be 
big enough to wipe out the primary 
capital firms have devoted to this 
market. 

The American firms, in particular, 
have gone into the market in a big 
way. in preparation for throwing their 
weight at their rivals after October 27. 
One or more of the chosen 27 could 
decided that the game is not worth the 
candle and pull out of the race before 
the start. If a leading primary dealer 
did so the domino effect might be 
disastrous. Other firms might quickly 
follow suit, dumping their accu- 
mulated stocks as they made for the 
changing room. 

The Bank of England knows — 
everyone knows — that there is simply 
not room for 27 profitable primary 
dealers in the new gilt-edged market. 
The sharp fall in gilts, unless it is 
arrested, may ease that problem. 


Accolade for Lloyd’s 


Lloyd's insurance market is quietly 
cock-a-hoop that the Queen and the 
Duke of Edinburgh have -agreed to 
preside at the official opening of the 
new Lloyd's building on November 
18. 

The Queen herself is not a name at 
Lloyd's. The new building was created 
by Richard Rogers, co-architect of the 
Pompidou Centre in Paris, maybe she 
will be tempted. 

Acceptance by the Queen of the 
inviiatidn has saved Lloyd's the 
embarrassment of inviting the second 
in line — the Prince of Wales. Given 
HRH’s views on modern architecture, 
Richard Rogers' cranes in flight above 
an elegant oil refinery would have had 
everyone on. tenterhooks. 

On a more serious note, the royal 
seal of approval is a blessed relief to a 
once revered institution that has 
attracted more criticism in the last 
five years than the Church of England. 
Many Lloyd's watchers had doubted 


whether a “top royal” would agree to 
come near the insurance market until 
the last of the great scandals had been 
sorted out. 

The PCW affair is not sorted out 
and it is highly unlikely that it will be 
by November 18. Lloyd’s has publicly 
stated that it hopes to reach a 
settlement by the end of this year. 
However, the scale of the losses and 
the PCW names' conviction that they 
have an excellent legal case against a 
host of defendants, including Lloyd's 
mean that a solution is far from easy 

The official opening will come just 
after Sir Patrick Neill, vice-chancellor 
of Oxford University, delivers his 
government-commissioned inquiry 
into the treatment of names at 
Lloyd's. Dignitaries at the insurance 
market will be keeping their fingers 
well crosssd that nothing in the Neill 
report, expected at the end of next 
month, will spoil the party on 
November 18. 



“No man in this country is under the smallest obligation, 
moral or other ; so to arrange 
his legal relations to his business or to his property 
as to enable the Inland Revenue to put the largest 
possible shovel into his stores ” 


Lord Clyde: Ayrshire Pullman Motor Services and 
D. M. Ritchie v Inland Revenue Commissioners 1920 


If you agree with this view, as we do, you ought to find 
out about our Inheritance Tax Scheme. It is, possibly, the 
most effective and the least expensive method ofhacking 
the taxman’s shovel down to pencil-thin dimensions.

Self-Employed? 
These 
pension plans have 
given better 
returns more often 
than any other 
company^ 


For the past nine years. Planned Savings 
magazine has compiled performance tables for 10 
and 20 year regular premium with profits policies. 

Of these 18 tables, The Equitable has topped 9 
and been second in 4 more, a record not approached 
by any of our competitors. 

How do we achieve such consistent perform- 
ance? 

First, because as a mutual company, we have no 
shareholders to nibble away at the profits. 

Second, we pay no commission to brokers or 
other intermediaries, so more of your money is 
invested. 

Most important of all, as our results show; we 
haveone of the finest investment teams in die Gry 

Of course the past cannot guarantee the future, 
but if you want the best return from your pension 
plan, fill in the coupon or 'phone 01-606 661 1 today

SHARES 


How do you have a market 
when you have nothing hi buy 
and nothing to sell? Simple. 
You set up a grey market 

This is one of the weirder 
activities m the City and 
usually involves only 
professional institutional 
investors. 

Bui there appears to be a 
grey market of some son in 
Trustee Savings Bank shares, 
and some private investors are. 
being tempted to dabble. 
When they did so just before 
the British Telecom flotation, 
many came to grief because 
they did not understand what 
the grey market was all about 
Even if you do understand, 
think more than twice before 
using it. 

As its name suggests, it b a 
somewhat shadowy entity. 
The idea is that shares in a 
company which is about to 
issue shares are traded before 
the actual flotation takes 
place. That means, of course, 
that aO trades on the grey 
market (known as the pre- 
market in politer circles) are 
only in notional shares — 
shares that do not yet exist 

The market is, in effect, a 
place to speculate on the 
future movement of the price 
of the actual shares. 

If you believe that the price 
of the shuts, when issued, will 
not go as high as the price 
bring quoted on the grey 
market, you sell. If you think 
the future price will go higher, 
you buy on the grey market. 

At the moment there is only- 
one licensed dealer, Cleve- 
land, making a grey market in 
TSB shares. The prices h has 
quoted have ranged as high as 
1 lOp for every SOp part-paid 
TSB share: 

“This is an exaggerated 
price,” says Peter Thorne, of 
Morgan Grenfell, the mer- 
chant bank. He believes the 
shares will rise to a substantial 
premium after die issue but 
that they will not go as high as 
that 

The trouble with the grey 
market is that if you sell 
shares, you still have to meet 



says “We don't want to scale 
down the allocations to an 
amount so small that they arc 
not worth having.** 

If you read between the 
lines, you will see that that 
probably means priority ap- 
plicants will not gel less than 


Ute minimum application of 
200 shares even if applications 
have to be scaled down. 

To supplement this, priority *ft 
applicants wanting more 
shares should definitely also 
apply on white forms as 
members of the general pub- 
lic. They are allowed to do this 
under the terms of the issue. 

Non-priority applicants, 
who get only one bite of the 
cherry, should probably apply 
for more shares than they 
want on the basis that their 
application will almost cer- 
tainly be scaled down. 


• K- .1 ; 



Dealing oo the Stock 
Exchange wiD soon 
become a reality for 
Sir John Read, left, 
TSB chairman, and 
Philip Charlton, the 
managing director 



However, if they are going 
for a smallish amount. Fewer 
than 1.000 shares, say. this 
may not be necessary. The 
normal system for. scaring’" 
down allocations when flota- 
tions are oversubscribed is to 
use a sliding scale. The bigger 
ihe application, the more is 
lopped off it Smaller applica- 
tions are scaled down less 
severely and are more likely to 
■be met in full. 

It is possible that the non- 
priority applications will go to 
a ballot where applications 
are simply pulled out of a hat 
and the unlucky ones get 
nothing at alL 

Or there could be a mixture 
of scaling down and balloting. . 
In general, it is probably wise * 
to apply for around twice the 
number of shares you want as 
long as that does not take you 
up to astronomical numbers. 

The Telecom issue is 
instructive, though it is not 
necessarily the model for the 
allotment of TSB shares. No 
one got more . than 800 
Telecom shares, though peo- 
ple applying for 200 or 400 
shares got their foil amount. 
Those who wanted 800 ac- 
tually got S00 and applicants 
for 1.200 got 600 shares. 
Anyone who applied for more * 
than 100.000 shares got noth- ' 
ingatall. 

The moral is. perhaps, that 
you should not be too greedy 
by being tempted to deal on 
the grey market or by applying 
for too many shares. 


are allotted no shares at all at 
the issue. 

In that case you would have 
to buy them at whatever price 
they were offered in the foil 
market once Stock Exchange 
trading begins — and you 
coukl end up seriously out of 
pocket You would almost 


We are very careful 
who we deal with’ 


your obligation to hand them 
over to the buyer even if you 


certainly not make the profit 
you had planned on by assum- 
ing that you would be allotted 
shares at the start. 

Harvey Lawrence, a direc- 
tor of Cleveland, insisted that 
the company was aware of the 
problem of inexperienced 
investors using the grey 
market. 

“The demand is from pro- 
fessional investors, people 


who are used to dealing on the 
Stock Exchange and the pre- 
market,” he says. “We are 
bring very careful who we deal 
with. We don’t want problems 
in the pre-market as happened 
with British Telecom. 

“When someone rings up 
wanting to deal, we ask if he 
understands the market and 
we insist on a bank reference 
so that we know if he can 
afford it.” 

Mr Lawrence claims that 
turnover has been high, with 
up to 320,000 TSB shares 
traded on some days. The 
deals tend to be of around 
10,000 each, and this suggests 
that the buyers and sellers are 
individuals. If they were in- 
stitutions the size of deal 
would be for larger. 

Some brokers meat (he mar- 
ket with frank disbelief. . 

“Deals of that size on the 


grey market are absurd. I can't 
understand who the diems 
are,” said one stockbroker. 

Although grey markets are 
not illegal in this country. 
Stock Exchange rules forbid 
its members to participate in 
them. 



With a premium of more 
than 100 per cent over the 50p 
partly paid issue price, it is 
easy to understand why people 
are being attracted on to the 
grey market. 

But the pitfalls are obvious. 
With only one dealer making 
prices, it is hardly a “market” 
at alL It is not big enough or 
liquid enough to give a reliable 
price to the shares. You could 
easily, therefore, end up with 
quite unnecessary losses by 
misting the grey market price 
and dealing. 

It is unnecessary because 
anyone who gels shares in the 
TSB issue is virtually certain 
to see a profit, baiting a 
sudden stock market collapse. 

The big question ahead of 
the flotation is how many 


shares to apply for to be sure 
of getting a decent quantity. 

The issue has all the signs of 
being several times over- 
subscribed. The prospectuses 
and application forms have 
been a sell-out at TSB and 
Lloyds Bank branches and the 
TSB share information office 


Apply for more 
than you want 


has bad more telephone calls 
than it can handle. 


Oversubscription means 
that not all applicants will get 
all the shares they applied for, 
although the TSB is keen to 
rive as much away to private 
investors as possible and rive 
less to institutional issues than 
is normal on new share issues. 


Those lucky enough to have 
priority status will oe assured 
of getting some shares, how- 
ever heavily subscribed the 
flotation.

• looks at some of 
, „ the options 

Saving for one’s declining 
. years is something most of us 
. would see as a sound, long- 
term idea. Anyone who is self- 
employed or in a job which 
'■ d .°“ no1 cany any pension 
. rights, or someone who has 
part-time earnings in either 
category, can lake advantage 
of the considerable tax advan- 
” *ages of a personal pension 
' plan. 

Contributions to the plan, 
X which may be up to 17.5 per 
cent of one’s qualifying eam- 

- ings. attract tax relief at the 
, highest rate; and are invested 

- in a fund which is itself tax- 
. exempt At retirement, the 

pension is taxed as earned 
. income and part of it may be 
commuted to a cash sum that 
is entirely tax-free. 

• So far so good. The snag is 

- that all the benefits come at 

• retirement, and meanwhile 

• the money put in is inacces- 
sible. Hence many people may 

-be reluctant to invest the 
maximum allowance just in 
} - case they may suddenly be in 

.r.need of funds. 

- The problem, however, has 
not been overlooked by insur- 
ance companies. Almost six 

w yea is ago Vanbrugh Life in- 
' traduced what was then a 
. revolutionary idea — a loan 
' facility attached to its personal 

- pension contract. Since then 

" Other collateral is 
usually required 

the ‘'loan back", as it is now 
£ called, has become a standard 
feature of most pension poli- 
cies on the market. 

The concept is based on the 
-option to take part of the 
■' policy proceeds as a cash sum. 
The Inland Revenue will al- 
low an amount up to three 
times the residual pension to 

- be taken in this way, wholly 
free of tax. This can then be 
used to repay the loan. 

A pension policy, however, 
cannot be assigned to another 
person, so some other form of 
. collateral will usually be re- 

- quired. This could be a charge 
. on property, or on stocks and 

-^-shares. It may also be nec- 
I-Tessary to take out fife assur-

therefore effectively repaid 
from pre-tax income. 

Self-employed people may 
well be looking to raise money 
for business purposes, in 
which case tax relief will 
usually be available on the 
loan interest too. This applies, 
for example, if the loan is to 
provide capital for a business, 
or to purchase a share in a 
partnership. 

However, a pension plan

business-oriented; it can be for

is secured against the 
borrower's home, and may be 
funded through a pension plan 
as well as other types of life 
assurance contract. 

But there is a drawback in 
using a pension plan for 
school fees. Although a child's 
school years may seem to last 
for ever, it is likely they will 
finish well before the parent’s 
retirement If the pension 
policy is the only source of 
finance to repay the loan, the 
parent could find himself still 
paying tbe interest on it long 
after the child has left home, 
never mind school. 

While a loan taken out 
against a pension plan may 
actually be repaid by some 
other means, it is as well to 


vie* ii as essentially a long- 
term commitment It makes 
sense, then, that the money be 
pul to some long-term pur- 
pose. A mortgage is particu- 
larly suitable in this respect 
and also carries considerable 
tax advantages. 

A pension mortgage works 
much like the loan back. Dur- 
ing the term of the mortgage, 
the borrower pays only in- 
terest to the lender, and the 
advance is repaid in one lump 
sum at the end from the cash 
proceeds of the pension 
policy. 

Since the full amount of the 
loan remains outstanding 
throughout the tax relief on 
interest payments is maxi- 
mized. Like any other, a 
pension mortgage qualifies for 
this relief on the first £30,000 
of a loan. Where it scores over 
other types, though, is in the 
fact that contributions to the 
pension policy also auracl tax 
relief. 

This brings (he net monthly 
payments down to much the 
same level as for other repay- 
ment methods, or possibly 
even less for a higher rate 
taxpayer. Meanwhile, the pen- 
sion plan premiums are build- 
ing up in a tax-exempt fund, 
and Should produce a consid- 
erable sum. in fact, the policy- 
holder may find that he can 
repay his mortgage, have some 
cash in hand left over, and 
receive a pension to boot. 

A word of warning, though, 
before we all rush off to take 
out a pension loan. If it has to 
be repaid at a particular date, 
and no other funds are avail- 
able. the borrower may have 
to cash in his policy before he 
is ready to retire, or at an 
inopportune moment in the 
market. 

Hie policyholder’s 
age is a factor 


When a policy matures, the 
accumulated fund is con- 
verted to an annual pension 
according to annuity rates 
current at that time. These 
depend partly on the 
policyholder's age. but also on 
investment conditions and in- 
terest rates. 

If annuity rates happen to 
be particularly low. then the 
pension will be correspond- 
ingly small. Moreover, since 
the cash sum that may be 
taken, is-limited to three times': 
the remaining pension, this 
too will be reduced. Hence the 
policyholder could find him- 
self with insufficient cash to 
pay off his loan, as well as less 
pension than he expected.

3-v.VpS, 


IT SEEMS THEY’RE TALKING 
OUR LANGUAGE. 



There's me word that’s common to 
most of Europe at the moment. 

Profits. 

And all the signs for Europe are 
adding up to excellent long- term growth 
prospects too. 

• Underdeveloped stock markets that are 
now attracting more and more investors 
both domestic and foreign - and, despite 
last year's gains, are still cheap com- 
pared with other major markets. 

• Improving economies with inflation and 
interest rates under control. 

• Increased productivity. 

• And company profits on their way up - 

and now helped by lower ofl prices. 


There’s every chance of excellent 
returns. 

But these stock markets are rela- 
tively small. (Even Germany, the largest 
economy in Europe, has a stock market 
only erne third the size of Britain.) 

And small markets can be volatile. 

Which is why our experts are now 
recommending a new investment mix. 

THE VOICE OF EXPERIENCE 

Our new Fund invests in the major 
markets of central Europe in high-yielding 
equities (mainly of larger companies), 
bonds and convertibles. 

A mix that is different from most 

other European funds. 

Because it still aims for high growth. 
But also includes the high-yielding 


equities and fixed interest content for 
income. And. for a degree of safety - 
which we believe is sensible in these smaller 
markets. 

ITS DEFINITELY GOOD NEWS 
(BELLE. B1EN- WUNDERBAR . . J

TAX 


Dallying over your returns 
will soon bring the Customs 
and Excise to your door — ■ 
and they won't take excuses, 
warns SUSAN FIELDMAN 

Jo- Anne Neal, aged 19. started her 
first job as a model on April 29 Iasi 
year rod soon began, to .earn, lots of. 
‘ftoheyrOn Mttfch: 12 ms-year ste 
registered for VAT — and discov- 
ered that success has its darker side; 

The Customs and Excise argued 
that she should-have registered by 
October 21. 1985. and 'demanded a 
£2 1 234 penalty for lateness. 

Miss Neal appealed against the- 
.nenalty at a. VAX .i{fot 1 tiial. i _Stoe 
'claimed -she had * a - “reasonable . 
excuse" for being late because of the 
unusual way she was paid by her 


- - AYe&s0n for being 
late in paying 


modelling agency .She said there was 
no way she could have known that 
she should have registered at Octo- 
ber 21. The Customs and Excise was 
□ot impressed. 

A lawyer acting for her, Lesley 
Uoyd-Eley , of VATAX- explains, 
“She had a rough idea of what she 
was earning based on vouchers 
given to her by the agency. But the 
-efienju - or i. agency. -could sub- 
sequently renegotiate ihe ; fee. -The 
agency prepared the invoices from 
the vouchers, but until a model was 
registered for VaT, their pojicy was 
aorta supply the models' w4ib a 
copy of the invoices."'. 

Section 15 of the I9S5 Finance 
Act does allow the defence of 
“reasonable excuse" but. perhaps 


not surprisingly, il does not define 
what it is. 

The tribunal refused to accept 
Miss Neal's argument. VATAX, 
which handles about 10 per cent of 
all VAT appeals, has decided to take 
the case to the High Court. 

Customs and Excise would not 
comment folly on the case, but a 
spokesman did say: "We have not 
spelled out what is a reasonable 
excuse because the Circumstances 
wt^h imhYidiial traders vary so - 
'much'" 

■ You may feel the regulations are 
already fairly tough, but new'proce- 
. dures.are coming into effect which 
5 totrefeei • the : -powers of the 
VATmen. The 1985 Finance Act 
. introduced new penalties for delay 
iq registering for and paying VAT- 
/ Sinct last. 1 summer, there have 
already been about 3,000 penalty 
notices issued for late registration. 

If you are registered for VAT. 
make sure you do not delay sending 
in your VAT return and cheque for 
payment. The hew default proce- 
dure starts on October 1. The first 
returns to which it will apply are 
those due on or after this (fete: 

John Brown, of chartered accoun- 
tants Arthur Young, explains: “You 
have two bites of the cherry before 
you gel hit. If you pay quarterly, and 
you are late twice in any 12-momh 
-/period, theri’ihe Customs and 
Excise can serve a surcharge liability 
notice on you.lf after service of (he 
notice you are late again, there is an 
. automatic penalty, which starts at 5 
J per cent of the VAT owed, with a 
minimum of £30, and can climb to a 
maximum of 30 per cenL" 

‘ The only way you can wipe your 
sfete clean is not to default again for 
a whole 12-month period from 
service of die notice. But you can 
escape the penalty if you can show 
that you had a reasonable excuse for 


not sending m the VAT return and 
payment. . 

Once again, reasonable excuse is. 
not defined But the Art is dear that 
trying to Marne someone else such 
asyouraccountant for the delay will 
not get you off the hook- Neither 
wilt not having enough money be a 
reasonable excuse. . 

So what is a reasonable excuse? 
Ian SdmcrviJle, of chartered 
accountants Deloiue Haskins and. 
Sells. Has ‘discussed. the,.new pro- 
posals with tbeCustortis and Excise: 
“They . agreed that if they had a 
problem with their computer, this 
would-be the sort of difficulty, that 

, would’ stdp a .repayment -supple* . 

mem. the equivalent of interest 
on a*detayed repayment- 

“We itien asked them what would 
happen if a .trader had a breakdown 
in his computer. Would this be a 
reasonable excuse for his late pay* 

Tightening-up 
of procedures 

ment? The initial reaction of the 
Customs was that they were not sure 
that they coukl see a parallel 
between the two situations!" 

If you know that there wifl be a 
problem with (ate payment, it is 
always a good idea to ’go and -see 
your local VAT office in advance. 

The tax solicitor. Patrick Way 
says: “The. new rules all. point to a 
ligbtehihg-up of procedures. -Thai 
means' a VATabie person must' 
register, and pay. on. time .— 
otherwise he is for the high jump."

Taxman's target: Jo- Anne Neal quickly made money as a model, but 
- was fete registering for VAT. Her “reasonable excuse" was rejected 

Gold or commodities haven? 


The world's stockmarkets are 
mores erratically even by 
their own standards, writes 
frtimi* Baker, who examines 
wfcfethW sold and tmmaodt' 


seems to be that those galas 
wi U be held. 

“The prospects are reason- 
ably pad," says Mike Long of 
stockbrokers Ro<*& & Pitman; 


ties might be a safe place of - . “Gold is on the' foothills of the 


(doge. 

are not. eptfriw a new 

golden age. At least aot yet. ‘ 
The fund managers and 
investment analysts in foe 


Himalayas: ft should appro* 
date steadily." 

: Tbertare pargfifls between 

redeaf nervdu&ness ibemt 
shares and the fall-scale panic 
which caused the 1 sharp de- 




— several rungs " down' foe 
ladder of optimism from 
phrases such as “new era". 

Gold has taken two^ great; , 
leaps forward ot roughly W 
per cent over the last few 
weeks and foe CMwensa* 


gold and other- commodities 
such as oQ and base metals 
began to soar. 

Bat Mr Long is adamant 
that thosedays'wfil not retare, 
at leak for the moment : “We 
have very low inflation and 
very high Interest rates, which 


makes a strong case for 
patting money on deposit. 
That is the major disincentive 
from investing in commodities 
i— money on deposit is more 
then retaining its value." 

Dylan Evans of Target, 
.however, feels (hat the empha- 
sis* certainly in America, is on 
avoiding a recession even if 
this means an increase in 
■inflation. 

For Mr Evans, the corner 
has beed tnnud in several vital 
respects: “We’ve reached the 
fare point in inflation and. after 
recent events on Wall Street 
in interest rates. Therefore I 
think we can say fhat commod- 
ities are probably gently past 
their worst point"

go unnoticed- when requests 
for school fees arrive. Parents 
become decidedly less aware 
of autumnal delights when 
they fork out for the university 
education of their children. 

But they should not remain 
blind to the .extraonfintry 
advantages of the covenant in 
helpin g to meet such pay- 
ments. for parental contribu- 
tions to student , grants range 
from. £205. based on gross 
earnings of £10.000 (after 
certain allowances), to £2332 
on £20.000 and -the maximum 
of £4300 ' qn earnings of 
£28,000. ."'" 

The covenant is a con- 
cession from the Inland Rev- 
enue. ft js tikefy to- be 
regarded^ therefore, as a kind 
of.Trojia horse, treated with 
care if not downright sus- 
picion. Yet the deed of cov-

creates a legally binding docu- 
ment -One person* (the cov-

income payments' to another. 

To gain the maximum 
advantage front such a prom- 
ise. the covenantor nuiit be at 
least a Iwic taxpayer: and the 
person who receives the pay- 
ments must pay no or httte 
tax.

• v The person' who receives 
£710, reclaims £290 from the 
Revenue. lit this way, al- 
though only £710 has been 
paid, it becomes £1,000 to the 
beneficiary. Tax efficiency is 
maximized when the income 
of the person who receives foe 
payments does not exceed the

children under 18, so transfers

grandparents or similar gen-

Idles his job. His working wife 
can continue the payments 
without making new cov-

The Inland Revenue is con- 
tented with the lax aspects of 
the covenants so there are 
certain restrictions, rigid but 
not irksome, on. its use. As 
well as being “signed, sealed 
and delivered" to ensure that 
it is legally enforceable, it 
must be “capable" of exceed- 
ing six years.

docs not exist. Bui this is in 
marked contrast to the 
£60.000 extra lax home on the 
increased sum pushed into the 
top tax bracket by virtue of the 
initial transfer five and a half 
yeans before death. 

The anomaly is even more 
glaring when considering 
more modest lifetime gifts 
felling wholly withm the nd 
rate band, currently £71,000. 
Take, for example, the caseof.. 
Emma, a millionairw who 
decides 10 give away «0£00 
to her favourite grandchild 

J °If Emma lives for mordftwr 
seven years from the date of 
the gift no lax will be payable.. 
If, on the other hand, site dies 
within three years, the whole 
£50,000 is added to her estate 
and the liability to johmiance 
tax is increased by - £30,000 

(£ 5 a 000 at dO percent ;/ 

If the date of death h 
between three and seyot years 


after the date of the gift, taper 
relief wifi, be available. How- 


wrong lolhink that this means 
the effective rate of tax would 
be reduced by 36 per cent aiid. 
the tax fiaTrility reduced to 
£24,000.' V 

; , The point to watch is that 
lifetime transfers are taken 
in lo " account in determining 
the total estate arid hence the 
higher marginal rates of tax. 

In our particular case, tax 
on the first £100,000 is only 
£8.950 and thus , the 60 per 
cent taper relief amounts to 
£5,370. For the. purposes, or 
this relief it js almost as 
though the rest of the estate

throughout the taper period. 

It is especially important to 
understand how this taper, 
relief operates if you are 


twiw j 

; considering making a gstt-ana 
subsequently taking out

However, in most cases the 
taper relief will be of little or 
no tax saving benefit and it 
will often be best to take out

FAMILY MONEY/7 


Baby on the way, but 
rights on the way out 




fci .PREGNANCY - ^) 

What does it mean in financial 
terms to become pregnant? 
Fair many women, die finan- 
cial consequences are all too 
serious. 

""■Pregnancy means a loss of 
intome and a serious interrup- 
tion to many women's work- 
ing, lives, although there is 
SQme job protection for the 
longer-term employees as well 
asta modest collection of state 
bdrfefiiSL 

But that looks set to change. 
Maternity benefits, aliow- 
ajjces and pay will probably be 
harder to come by, while 
reinstatement rights and the 
right not to be unfairly dis- 
missed because of pregnancy 
will, if government plans are 
implemented, be eroded 
significantly. 

•t -Maternity grant: Worth 
£25, it is now available to all 
pregnant women. This is to be 
abolished in April 1987 in 
fir vour of a £75 pay ment out of 
the new Social Fund — but 
oqly to women of limited 
means. Henceforth, only 
women who have to rely on 
Income Support (the new 
supplementary benefit) or 
Family Credit (the new family 


income supplement) will qual- 
ify lor the giant Single pay- 
ments, which could once be 
made to pregnant women on 
grounds of exceptional need, 
are also to be abolished. 

True, £25 buys little more 
than a few nappies. Neverthe- 
less, mothers now entitled to 
the £25 grant and single 
payments for maternity needs 
are likely to be worse off 
through the introduction of 
the new system. For example, 
m 1983 about 170,000 women 
claimed single payments for 
maternity needs at an average 
payment of £60. This, added 
to the £25 grant, gives an 
average of £85- £10 higher in 
1983 than the £75 proposed 
for 1987. 

• Maternity pay/aHowsmces: 
From April 1987 the present 
maternity pay and maternity 
allowance systems will be 
replaced by Statutory Mater- 
nity Pay (SMP). This will be 
paid by employers rather than 
by the DHSS. Unlike the 
present system for maternity 
allowance — where the woman 
must have paid a minimum 
amount of National Insurance 
contributions in the previous 
financial year — to qualify, the 
woman must have worked for 


her present employer for at 
least six months. 

Women in these circum- 
stances will be entitled to a 
fiat-rate payment at the same' 
rate as the lowest rate of 
Statutory Sick Pay (now 
£3 1.60 a week) for 18 weeks. If 
the woman concerned has 
been with her employer for 
two years, her SMP will be 

increased to 90 per cent of her 
earnings for the first six weeks 
of her maternity leave. 

Women who do not quality 
for SMP but who have paid 

*75,000 will lose 
imder new rules’ 

National Insurance contribu- 
tions for 16 of the past 52 
weeks will be able to claim 
the residual maternity allow- 
ance from the DHSS. 

One item of good news is 
that women will nave a choice 
regarding when they take then- 
paid maternity leave. The new 
scheme allows for a 13-week 
“■core" period starting six 
weeks before the baby is due;' 
but the woman will be able to 
choose when to use the 
remaining five weeks’ 
entitlement. 

Against this, Tony Newton, 



Happy days, but pregnancy is 
the Social Services Under- 
secretary at (he time, admit- 
ted to Parliament that 
between. 75,000 and 85,000 
women will lose because of the 
new rules. Who, gains? A mere 
5,000 to 10,000. 

• Maternity rights: Employ- 
ment rights relating to unfair 
dismissal, redundancy and 
matemiLy reinstatement are 
now based on a work record of. 
either 16 horns a week for two 
years, or eight hours a week 
for five years. The latest 
government White Paper, 
Building Businesses . . . Not 
Barriers, suggests this should 
be changed to 20 hours a week 
for two years, or 12 hours a 
week for five years. 

This will further reduce 
eligibility for all employees' 
maternity rights — including 


not all Motbercare shopping 

protection against unfair dis- 
missal on grounds of preg- 
nancy, and rights to ntaieraity 
pay, maternity leave and 
reinstatement, Furthermore, 
the White Paper proposes to 
exempt employers of fewer 
than 10 employees from' 
"reinstatement!' arrange- 
ments altogether. . 

The latest "White Paper is 
not available for consuliation 
purposes; it merely sets out 
the Govern mem's plans for 
the future. Judging by the 
latter’s previous trade record 
what is proposed will happen. 
At this rate, “family planning” 
could take on a whole new 
meaning — and hard won 
women's rights will have gone 
to the walL

costs of buying a home, are 
cqming down. From October 
1. many conveyancing (nils 
will be substantially reduced 
as the Land Registry is cutting 
many of its fees. 

In most pans of England 
and Wales, when you buy a 
home it usuirily _ has a 
'‘registered" title. This means 
that the tide to the property is 
.uaranteed by the 
jvemmcDL 

When the property is first 
registered the purchaser pays 
a fee to the Land Registry via 
his solicitor. Hie Registry will 
check that he has a valid title 
and then register his owner- 
ship. When a registered prop- 
erty . is subsequently 
transferred a fee is again paid 
co the Registry by the new 
owners, and the details' of the 
change of ownership are 
noted 

Land registry fees increase 
according to the value of the 
property. From October 1, the 
amount of the Land -Registry 
fees will stHI depend on the 
cost of the property, but 


generally the fees, in the price ■ 
ranges most relevant Jo home 
buyers, will be going down by 
between 27 and 37 per dept 


less to process. 

The Law Society is veiy 
much in favour: " Wears very 
conscious that solicitors have 
to collect the fees on behalf of 
the Land Registry, and that 
the fees represent a very 
substantia] cost to the bouse 
buyer. Any" reduction must be 

welcome." 

But are the reductions large 

enough? Surely it is no more 

difficult for the Land Registry

£35,000 than on one worth

As long ago as 1977-78, the 
Land Registry, Registration of 
Title Department made a £1 
million surplus. In 1982-83 
the surplus was more than 
£115 million. In 1984-85 it 
was just over £20 million. A 
Land Registry spokesman 
said: “The estimated surplus 
for 1985-86 will be somewhere 
around £16 million mark."

basically meant to cover die 
cost of salaries and other 
expenses, and to ensure that., 
there is enough money to pay 
out for any indemnity claims 
where loss is caused through 
an error on the register of title 
of a particular property.

surpluses arc very high, be- 
cause of the veiy high level of 
conveyancing activity, and die 
increase in house prices. The 
Land Registry is not meant to 

be in surplus." There new 
reductions have simplified die 
fee structure, bul many buyers 
would still argue that the fees 
are still too high and the 
changes have not _ gone tar 
enough. It will be interesting 
to see whether the Land 
Registry accounts show a sur- 
plus for 1986-87. 

hi the meantime, something 
is better than nothing, and any 
reduction in the home-buying

TENNIS 


McEnroe advances 
but qualifier 
sets the pace 

From Richard Evans* Los Angeles 


John McEnroe’s rehabilita- 
tion continued in ihe Volvo 
tournament here at ihe UCLA 
tennis centre when he reached 
the third round with a 7-5, fr-3 
victory over Christo Sicyn, of 
Somh Africa. Sieyn, a power- 
fully built player wiiha big serve 
and a quick eye, provided just 
the kind of opposition McEnroe 
needs at present: a match to get 
his teeth into while he rebuilds 
his shaken confidence. 

Aaron Krickstein. the No.8 
seed, became ihe fifth seed to 
fall when he lost 6-1. 6-3 to a 
local qualifier. Derrick 
Ro&iagno. The first set lasted 
only 16 minuies which may be a 
record for a grand prix 
tournament. 

f can remember Hoad taking 
a 6-0 set ofT Gonzalez in 13 
minutes on fast boards in the 
days of the London professional 
championships at Wembley in 
the early 1960s, but that was 
before players sal down at 
changeover* and bounced balls 
interminably before every ser- 
vice. Rostagno will be hard- 
pressed to maintain that pace 


when he meets the top seed. 
Stefan Ed berg, of Sweden. . m 

Attempts have been made m- 
Cali forma these past two weeks 
to promote the often neglected 
art of mixed doubles. Peter 
Fleming and Betsy Nagetscn 
collected S27.Q00 (about 
£18.500) each for winning i 
mixed doubles only tournament 
in Sacramento last Sunday 
(Chris and John Lloyd could ge* 
no further than the semi-finals)- 
and this week, at Laguna Ntguet^ 
the Ford Sports championships ■ 
are bringing club finalists lb-' 
eeihcr with some professionals, 
in an event that will culminate: 
in a grand finale at latapa* 
Mexico, next month. 

The programme involve s sevy 
cral hundred clubs in 50 metro- 
politan areas across the country 
and is proving an excellent way 
of offering amateur players »■< 
chance to attend clinics and mb' 
shoulders with professionals .

ICE SKATING 

Britain’s 
skaters 
miss out 

By Michael Coleman 

The St Ivel ice skating gala at 
Richmond next week seems 
designed to be of more benefit to 
overseas competitors, the spon- 
sors and television than to those 
who really matter — British 
skaters. 

There win be only one British 
entrant in each of the solo 
events. Paul Robinson and Jo- 
anne Conway. Two pairs and 
two dance couples have been 
allowed but this, it was ex- 
plained, was to pad out the field 
in those events. 

, The late withdraw] because of 
injury of the top male compet- 
itor. Petr Barna. of Czecho- 
slovakia, was not seized on as an 
opportunity to give Charles 
Wildridge. the obvious sub- 
stitute and Richmond trained, a 
much needed international out- 
ing. u Barna*s withdrawal 
brought the field down to eight, 
just right” an official explained, 
adding; “ITV did not want it 
dragging on until after 
11.00pm.* 

The St Ivel is the only 
international contest of the sea- 
son in this country, and. further- 
more, skaters of the middle rank

isn’t this again putting all the

Admittedly, the failure of the 
new Slough ice arena to come on 
stream until yesterday - a delay 
of six months caused by a 
persistent -roof leak - did de- 
prive the St Ivel organizers of 
practice space. But other ice 
ought to have been found. 


Marathon first 

London Marathon organizers 
have struck their first official 
supplier deal, worth more than 
£100,000 over two years, with 
Le Coq Sportif (UK.}. The 
contract by the French-based 
company will consist of cash, 
clothing and shoes. 


BOXING 

McKenzie: 
ready to 
regain title 

By Srikmmr Sen 
Boxing Correspondent 

Clinton McKenzie, (he former 
British and European Ught- 
wetierweight champion, sets out 
this afternoon to find oat 
whether the road back lo the top 
is too steep for aa old cam- 
paigner like himself when he 
takes oa another McKenzie, 
Tony, for the vacant British title 
be first won eight years ago. Ail 
ibis takes place in a marquee in 
the grounds of Sbendish House, 
Hemcl Hempstead, a leisure 
centre for employees of Craxtey 
Script, the sponsors of (he show. 

In Clinton's last attempt at 
regaining his title in May he 
fought bravely but he lost on a 
controversial decision to Tony 
Laing, of Nott ingham - The old 
McKenzie firepower was some- 
how missing. 

He thought of retiring for the 
second time bnt when Laing 
vacated the tide to concentrate 
on the European crown, Clinton 
thought he would have another 
go. If he cannot beat his 23-year- 
old namesake from Leicester, 
who has only (6 contests m three 
years. Clinton might as well call 
it a day. 

i Tony McKenzie, apart from 
being beaten by Tony Laing in 
eight roands, has not boxed 
anyone of the class of Clinton's 
opponents. If Clinton's strength 
does not desert him he should be 
able to box Tony out of the 
contest, even stop him. 

Errol Christie, the exciting 
Coventry middleweight of whom 
many wonderful things had been 
expected, also tries to find out 
more about where be is going. 
Though the most gifted of 
British boxers, Christie's chin 
has got in the way of his 
progress: Jose Seys, of Bdgmm, 
knocked him out in one round 
and Mark Kaylor in eight in the 
-fight of the year.** Since then 
Christie has never looked too 
safe taking one on his chin. 

Today be meets an American, 
Adam George, from Lafayette. 
Louisiana, who will be a good 
test. George, though a light- 
middleweight, is young, clever, 
quick, durable and difficult to 
catch. Prince Rodney, the for- 
mer British Iigtas~»iddteweigbt 
champion, will vouch for that. 
George outpointed him in Car- 
diff. Christie's fast hands, how- 
ever, should subdue George.

Time for experiments 


Barcelona — Norman 
Hughes, aged 33. will earn his 
hundredth cap for England if he 
plays in both internationals 
against Spain this weekend 
(Sydney Friskin writes). After 
their 10-0 victory over Surrey in 
midweek, the only England 
doubt is Clift who has a groin 
injury. 

"Manana” seems to be the 
attitude of Spain who have not 
yet announced their squad for 
the World Cup starting in 
London on October 4. Nor have 


they had much activity since 
they lost 2-1 to Pakistan in 
Santander in June. 

Colin WhaJley, the England 
manager, said yesterday; "As 
these are the last official inter- 
national matches before the 
World Cup our policy will be to 
try out every player." 

The two countries last met m 
the W83 European champion- 
ships in Amsterdam when Spain 
won 3-2 after being two goals 
down. England, however, beat 
them 1-0 at Melbourne in 1982.

powerful Sussex stable by add-

should be Master Pokey* who

Never have there been as 
many English challengers .for 
Irish prizes as in the current 
season and the invasion contin- 
ues at Leopanlstown this after- 
noon when the four-year-old 
Kufhma, trained by Geoff 
H uffer, beads the challenge for 
the group three nine-furkmg 
Hermessy Cognac Glencairn 
Stakes. 

This race wQl offer Iririi 
racegoers the first opportunity 
of seeing the top British appren- 
tice Gary Carter in action as he 
comes over with Kufuma. 

On his latest start, in the Final 
Score Stakes at Nottingham, 
Kufuma proved much too good 
for that very consistent three- 
year-old KadiaL 

Willie Hastings-Bass b as 


booked the visiting American 
jockey Cash Asmussen Am- My 
Generation, but his victory this 
season came in a handicap at 
York and he does not look as big 
a h«w gw to Kufuma as Michael 
Stoute’s Samarid. already a 
winner in Ireland this season.

O’Brien. 

T-wr wtng that he was without 
a ride in tbe group three 
Hennessy XO Suken Glider

Jim Bolger offered him the 
mount on Snow Finch, 

Tins youngster has nm 
consistently well in good com- 
pany, but may meet her match 
here in another talented young- 
ster, Tapolite, who is chasing a 
treble. At The Curragh a month 


With Fiora van ti falling to five 
up to his exulted juvenile 
reputation, the best of the home 


reputation, the best of the home

Champlain. If Kufuma can re- 
produce bis Nottin gham form, 
though, he will take a lot of 
beating at the weights.

Genghiz (Tony Ives) can land 
tbe group one Prix de la 
Salamandre (7f) at 
Lougch&mp tomorrow and so 
giye Lester Piggott his -first 
winner in France in a race which 
be won four times as a jockey. 

The Newmarket colt has woo 
berth his races to date with the 
minimum of fuss and is highly 
rated by connections. 

However, be feces strong, 
opposition, notably from the 
unbeaten Prix Momy winner, 
Sahara Reiko, and the* Prix du 
Calvados winner Wbaictfyric. 
The latter is returning to his best 
trip after failing over fire fur- 
longs. 

Paul Kelleway's pair. Risk Me 
(Cash Asmussen) and Gulf King 
(Ray Cochrane), may find tbe 
company too hot, although Risk 
Me could take a hand on his bean 
form. 

Knights Legend (GreviDe 
Starkey) has a our chance in the 


Cup line-up by beating Henry 
CeciPs challenger. 

El Cube is 1 unbeaten in two 
races and looked impressive 
when beating Hauwmal at 
Newbury, but the greater experi- 
ence of Tommy Way, who has 
already won three, group races 
abroad this season, can give him 
the edge. 


Damister (Pat Eddery) is the 
British hope in the 002J03 
Turf Clastic (lm 4f) at Belmont 
today-. He has not managed a 
win this year, but looked to 
be returning to form when third 
to Shardari in the Matchmaker 
International. 

However, Manila, ridden by

Madras (Reuter) — A 
magnificent 210 by Dean 
Jones and poor Adding by the 
dispirited Indian fielders 
helped Australia reach 556 for 
six, their highest Test score in 
India, on the second day of the 
first Test yesterday. Jones was 

joined in a record fourth- 
wicket partnership of 178 by 
Allan Border, his captain, who 
scored 106 -the third century 
of the innings. 

Jones, suffering from nau- 
sea and leg cramps in blister- 
ing heal mid high humidity, 
became the first Australian to 
score a Test double-century in 
India, as he punished a wilting 
bowling attacL 

Playing in only his third 
Test, the 25-year-old Victoria 
batsman picked up slowly 
from his overnight 56 norout. 
He took 334 minutes to 
complete his maiden Test 
hundred before going on the 
attack in the afternoon, taking 
only a further 154 minutes to 
complete his double century. 

It was during this period 
that Ik was overcome by the 
conditions and struggled to 
contend with his illness. In all, 
Jones batted 503 minutes, 
faced 330 balls and hit 27 
fours and two sixes before 
being bowled just after tea by 
Yadav, the ofFspuner. 

The previous highest in- 
nings for Australia in India 
was the 167 by Graeme Yallop 
I at Calcutta in 1979, while 
Jones's fourth-wicket stand of 
178 with Border surpassed the 
previous Australian record 
against India of 159, estab- 
lished by Harvey and Loxton 
at Melbourne in 1947-48. 
Jones bad earlier partnered. 
Boon, who scored 122 on' 
Thursday, in a second-wicket 
parineiship of 158. 

India’s only wicket during 
the morning, after Australia 
had resumed at 21 1 for two, 
was that of Bright, the 
mghtwatdunan, caught by 
Snastri off Yadav for 30, after 
he and Jones had run up 75 in 
80 minutes. Bright paid scant 
respect to the Indian bowlers 
and used the long handle to 
slam three boundaries and a 
six before lofting a catch to 
Kapil Dev at mid-on. 

Despite the innocuous In- 
dian bowling. Border, took 44 
minutes to score his first run. 
He was dropped three times 
during his inning e a simple 

TENNIS 

Big Cat to 
mesmerise 
the Swede 

From Rex Bellamy 

Tennis Correspondent 
Hamburg 

Ivan Lendl and Boris Becker 
have better references, but 
Henri Leconte is the most 
exciting player in the world and 
Miksiav Moot the most 
enchanting. These two could 
cook a feast of tennis for us in 
tomorrow’s final of the German 
championships. 

Leconte may have a difficult 
match today against Emilio 
Sanchez. In the other semi-final 
Merir, who has a knack of 
making Swedes look rasher like 
vegetables in a garden of flow- 
ers, will cast his magic spell in 
the direction of Kent Cartsson. 
aged 18, who beat Henrik 
Sundstrom 6-2, 6-7, 6-2 yes- 
terday and may have earned a 
place in the Swedish Davis Cup 
team. 

Leconte, a family man who 
usually knows when to call the 
children to order, was briefly 
embarrassed before exercising 
bis authority over Thomas Mus- 
ter, aged 1 8, who beat Mecir and 
Jakob Hlasek, among others, to 
win the Hitversum title a few 
weeks ago. Leconte won 6-2, 0- 
6, 7-5. In the second set he was 
cold and tired and, at 04 down, 
decided to save his energy for 
the third seL 

Muster, 5ft Uin tall, is a 
bustling left-hander with a hair- 
style like a two-tone brush that 
has seen too much action. He is 
nimble, hits hard, has good 
pasting shots, but does not 
advance to the nets as often as 
be should. Leconte often looked 
careless or listless. He needed 
two match points and. each time 
played a top-spun backhand. 
The first was out but the second 
landed on a line. 

Mecir baffled Hlasek and beat 
him 6-0. 6-2. In the first nine 
games Hlasek scored only 15 
points. They call Mecir “The 
Big Cat" and the ni cknam e is 
doubly apt He moves fast, but 
with grace, and little obvious 
effort- He also seems to have a 
mesmeric effect on his oppo- 
nents, as cats sometimes have 
with birds. Fine players are 
plunged into an alien world 
when they join Mecir on court 
because nobody else uses decep- 
tion with the same seemingly 
casual precision.

catch to Kapil Dev at mid- 
wicket off Maninder after he 
had been in only five minutes; 
the substitute* 

Sivaramakrishnan, could not 
get his baud to a catch in the 
dips when Bonder was on 67; 
and Kapil Dev missed another 
chance when Border was on 
98. Also, before Border had 
scored, Yadav had a confident 
leg-before appeal turned 
down. Border, who hit one six 
and 14 perfectly timed fours in 
his nineteenth Test century, 
passed Bobby Simpson’s total 
of- 1,125 runs to become 
Australia’s leading run-maker 
against India. 

The Indian fielding deteri- 
orated badly and several 
boundaries were given 
a way-Pandit, while substitut- 
ing as wicketkeeper, missed an 
easy chance to stump Mat- 
thews when the batsman was 
on tight- Matthews added 63 
for the sixth wicket with 
Border before Shastri had the 
Australian captain caught at 
backward short-leg. 

Australia's previous best to- 
tal in India was 523 for seven 
at Bombay in 1956/57 and 
their highest in all Tests 
against India was 674 at 
Adelaide in 1947-48. 

The Australians are ex- 
pected to declare some time 
today, the third day of the 
match, in the expectation that 
the wicket will fake spin on the 
fourth and fifth days.

The North and Midlands arc 
the Cinderella district in Scot-

influx of senior players, mainly 
from Edinburgh, and the fact 
that the Japanese have had time 
to acclimatize, should present 
the visitors with their best 
chance of a victory in Scotland.

The Ulster selectors have , 
shown a degree of inconsistency ,» 
in their line of thinking over the 
team, announced yesterday, to 
meet a Canadian XV at 
RavenhiD next Wednesday. Out £ 
go Harbinson and Duncan, 
beyond any doubt two of 
Ulster's outstanding players * 
against the South of Scotland 
last weekend. They are replaced ! 
by Hewitt and Cut respectively. ; 

That is fair enough. But the 
logicality behind that thinking is 
not apparent in the retention of 
McKibbin in front of Millar, 
now back m action. Nor is it 
apparent in the retention of 
Anderson as captain, now that 
Irwin is back in the fray and 
firing on all cylinders. 

Meanwhile Kieman is re- * 
placed in the centre by Clinch 
(Lansdowne) in the Ireland , 
Under-25 team for next 
Saturday's game at Lansdowne . :

est consumers' payment sys-

Kodak and Federal Express, 
and three more will be an-

ISL's Olympic programme 
is called TOP. Michele 
Verdier, the IOC's press offi- 
cer — who has agreeably taken 
over this part of the IOC’s 
{auction previously dominated 
loftily by tiie deposed director, 
Monique Bertioux — was able 
to announce that 120 NOCs 
have signed, each receiving a 
$10,000 Oat fee and $300 per 
competitor attending the Seoul 
and Calgary Games.

invited TOP executives to a 
meeting, and the only tra- 
ditional Olympic nation miss- 
ing b — Greece. 

The Greeks have mounted a 
mythical horse of high prin- 
ciple, which m becomes them, 
considering that they have 
charged heftfly successive 
Olympic hosts for the leg- 
endary right of Kghtfng the 
Olympic torch by the son's

With the death of Nikos 
Nissiotis, their IOC member, 
Greece may find tint their

1996 is for from unopposed. 
Both Brisbane and Bir- 
mingham could be bidding

together with Toronto. Assum- 
ing a European city wins this 
October, then by 1996 the 
Olympic movement coaid he 
more seriously looking for 
additional financial benefit, 
and Brisbane or Toronto 
would better suit American 
television than Athens. 


Aston villa, yesterday asked 
Peter Swales, bis opposite 
number at Maine Road, for 
permission to speak to the 46- 
year-old Scot Mr Swales said 
that he would inform his 
board of Villa's interest. 

“Naturally we don’t want to 
lose him but the matter wifi 
have to be discussed,” be said. 
The Villa chairman, who said 
be would not approach any 
manager under contract to- a 
dub, stated on Thursday that 
“a big name” had come to him 
about the position. 

If City agree to release 
McNeill, as seems likely, they 
will probably ask for about 
£100,000 in compensation 
since he has three years of his 
contract still to run. McNeO) 
said: “I am flattered that a 
dub of that stature has come 
in for me.” 


The name of McNeffl was 
just about the only one that 
had not been linked with the 
Villa post since Turner’s dis- 
missal on Sunday. The Bir- 
mingham Evening Mail listed 
a racing-style form book for a 
fidd of the IS most likely 
candidates but he was not 
among them. They asked Villa 
supporters whom they wotdd- 
roost like to see win the race 
and way out in front was Keith 
Burkinshaw, the -former 
Tottenham Hotspur manager. 

Peter Shilton, one of the 
early front runners, net 
surprisingly declared Ms dis- 
interest in the position: He has 
enough on his hands at the 
moment, trying to rescue 
Southampton without trying 
to do the job of player and 
manager at Villa Park. 

He and hK stand-m last 
week, young Flowers, have 
had to pick the ball out of the 
net IS limes already this 
season and the likelihood is 
that Shilton, who has recov- 
ered from influenza, will be 
rummaging around in the 
back of Ms net again this 
afternoon. Liverpool, the 
champions, come to the Dell 
wdl placed to take over the 


leadership of the first division 
for the first time this season. 

However, one man with 
good reason to have a say 
about that is Mark Wright, the 
England defender, who broke 
his leg in the FA Cup sera* 
final against Liverpool. He is 
included in a Southampton 
squad for the first time since 
that accident, in a collision 
with Shilton, five months ago. 
The injury cost him his place 
in England's squad for the 
World Cup finals in Mexico. 

The decision to play the 23- 


Rbc has Ms final game before a 
second Aerates tendon operation

“After just one reserve game it 
is unlikely that he will be 
ready *to face the League 
champions but I'm not ruling 
him out completely,” Chris 
NichoU, the Southampton 
manager, said. 

NichoU, who is still optimis- 
tic of persuading Allan Evans, 
the Villa centre back, to join 
them, names Gittens, a re- 
serve central defender, in the 
squad. Armstrong,, who has 
refused to play in a wide 
midfield position this season, 
is also included. 

In contrast Liverpool, who 
have a profusion of quality' 
centre backs, are able to 
welcome back their captain, 
Hansen, after missing two 
games through a hamstring

Southampton more envious, 
that makes three matches

Brisbane's committee, how- 
ever, is not optimistic that 
their backers would stand 
another campaign. Much of 
their support is with “new 
money” from Western Austra- 
lia, where they've never heard 
of the IOC or toe charter. 
“The attitude is Kkdy to be “if 
they don't want us now, forget 
it' I'm afraid” a Brisbane 
committee man tell? me. 

Several socialist countries of 
the Olympic Council of Asia's 
36 members — Afghanistan, 
Laos. Mongolia, North Korea, 
Vietnam and Yemen PDR — 
seem unlikely to take part m 
the 10th Asian Gaines starting 
today. Not a boycott, they say, 
just that they haven't an- 
swered toe invitation. 

The same absentees may 
well ideologically deny them- 
selves in 1988, though the IOC 
will lose no sleep* The rattle of 
anti-imperialist slogans from 
Pyongyang, exerting Asian 
neighbours to stay away tins 
fortnight, has become hoBow 
and contrived. A recent radio 
broadcast falsely proclaimed 
that die South had 600,000 
cases of Aids. More positively, 
they cabled invited countries 
saying that “anybody who 
loves peace should not go to 
Seoul”. Another broadcast 
earlier this month churned toe 
South “was cm the brink of 
war”. If so, the North are 
possibly best placed to know.
